WYTIIEVILLE DISPATCH. BY ST. CLAIR &amp; BRITTON. FRIDAY, : : : : OCTOBER 25, 18GL The next Governor of Massachusetts. Hon. John Quincy Adams who accepted the Conservative nomination, for Governor of Massachusetts is the grand son of the late John Quincy Adams, once President of the United States, and son «f lion. Chas. Francis Adams, Minister to the Court of St. James. Like his great ancestor, he cannot concur in the extreme political intolerance and disloyalty to the Constitution of the ruling party in Massachusetts.. The elder John Quincy Adams repudiated the treiiehery of the Bluelight Federalists of I'Bl2, and raised the standard against them. Ilis grandson is now arrayed against the same phase of popular disloyalty to the Constitution and the national welfare—into which the people of Massachusetts have been beguiled by the depraved politicians and preachers of that State. It would be a great national blessing if he could meet the same success in his independent and bol...

ODDS AND ENDS . BILLINGS' PHILOSOPHY. —The heart ov a tru friend is like a mirror; if you look into it vou see yourself thare. It iz a good plan tn kno menny people, but let only a few kno you. I have no more respect for those who only cater tu imagination, than I have for the man who first invented ginger pop. I never knu a man ov much wisdom who could sing a song well or pla on the fiddle. I don't care how much a man talks if ho will only say it in a few wurds. Rewards deferred makes us miserable; it iz jist so with punishments. When I was a boy I would rather be licked twice than to be postponed once. There iz one thing sertain; reason is more than the master of the pashuns.— If this is probably so, the mon must be a phool who ain't boss of himself. We awl willing to pay more for being amuzed than instructed. How many folks do you serpose there iz in this world who are satisfied with things az far az they have got. Not more thonG I'll bet.

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1870. Wytheville Trade. The coming fall and winter will be the sunshine season of trado for our merchants, and if they do not make hay in the shape of custom, they never will. The harvests have given abundant yields wherever gathered,throughout tho South, and other crops give elegant promise of like returns. Tho grain crops of Europe have failed to such an extent that seveneighths of the cereals used there will have to come from foreign countries, the greater part from the United States. This increased demand, with no corresponding supply, must naturally raise the price. And if our farmers will only be prudent and consult their best interests, they will not bo over anxious to convert their surplus grain into cash, but hold it for the advance which must follow the demand | for bread -stuffs from Europe. By so lining they will realize more than the aoti- \ eipated profit.* "With this increased amount of money they will become enabled to gratify th...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1875. CST The «teru and Inexorable pursuit and punishment of the leading officers of the government nnd others who have for so many yenrs been engaged in swindling the Government through the operations of the whisky ring at St. Louis, we*trust will have tho effect to startle 'government thieves in all sections of the country, und for a while, at least, disinfect the moral atmosphere. These prosecutions recall to mind the raid made upon tho whisky ring by Chief Justice Chase in Richmond seven years ago, when so many of tho revenue officials found their way to Albany, and the infamous Radical ring, which had up to that timo held high carnival and almost controlled the political fortunes of the State, suddonly found themselves handcuffed and on their way to the penitentiary. The country wfts fortunate then in having a Chief Justice and u President who were honest and fearless, and we no doubt owe the success of the present virtuous spasm to th...
