by j. w. & s. it. o'briex. LO U D O N : WEDNESDAY : JULY 12, 1854. . t&" Last week wlile suffering from a pain ful attack of diarrhea we requested a gentle man to write some fifteen or twenty lines, the amount required to fill up the paper previous to going to press. He consented to do so and we retired to bed. Having met with a disease simi lar to, if not cholera, in his practice, he made that the subject of his artcle; which seems to lave almost hurt the feelings of those who have assumed the guardianship of the health of East Tennessee. We read the article in the paper before it went out to the public, and had we not believed from what wo had previously under stood of Wo or three cases at this place, that they closely approximated, at least, that dis ease, the article alluded to should not have met the public eye. We had understood the eyroptoms of cholera to be purging, vomiting, and cramping, with rice-water discharges and a general relaxation of the system and pulse. S...

GENTLE WORDS LOVING SMILES. The sun may warm the prass of life, The dew the drooping flower, And eyes grow bright bd1 watch the light Of autumn' opening hour But words that breathe of tenderness, And smiles we know are true, Are warmer than the summer time, And brighter than the dew. li is not much the world can give, With all its subtile art, And gold and gems are not the things To satisfy the heart; But oh, if those who cluster round The altar and the hearth, Ilave gentle words and loving smiles, How beautiful is earth! AGRICULTURAL- Wash for Trees. Heat one pound of sal soda to redness in an iron pot, and dissolve it in a gallon of water. This wash will take off all the moss and dead bark, and kill the insects on all fruit trees or grape vines, and make them as smooth as though polished, and make old trees bear anew. Never witcwash a tree. Fighting Bees. To stop bees from fighting, breaking the comb of the robbers is said to be sufficient by giving them plenty of business in taki...

gmitom fro Urns. DEATH OF INNOCENCE. She bloomed ir beauty like the rose, The fairest of earth's diadem; She faded 'mid the winter's snowa, And died upon the parent stem. As pales the star upon the brow Of summer's eve she passed away; Her brilliant eye U clouded now, Her roseate cheek is cold as clay. No more that voice of melody Shall echoe's sweetest notes prolong; No more the laugh of sinless glee Shall ring amid the happy throng. The vacant chair beside the hearth Proclaims her loss at evening hour: And they who knew her sterling worth, la silence mourn the faded flower. She died as sinks the weary child. Upon a mother's breast to sleep, And in her latest dreems she smiled; hr who o'er such a death could weep! As falls the leaf in autumn's glen, TVhen whisp "ring winds in music play, SLe diedf and mortals knew not when Her joyous ppirit passed away. AGRICULTURAL. THE WEEVIL AND FLY.

Diarrhoea is prevalent to some extent throughout the country. We have no reliable information of any other deaths from Cholera any where in this vicinity. Many of our citzens have returned daring the week, and ws have no doubt feel as secure in Loudon, as they could any where else.

Let Us Speak of a Mau as We Find Him.

Let us speak of a man as we find him, And heed not what otkers may say; If he's frail, then a kind word will bind him Where coldness would turn him away. For the heart must be barren indeed, .
