We call the attention of our readers to the advertisement in to-days paper of Mr. Wm. Arthur's new and splendid stock of goods. There may be other fine stocks in town, for we have had no interest in examining, and they may not, for ought we know, be worth advertising. However, if we are mistaken in this, we should be much gratified that their owners would adopt the proper means of enabling us to correct the mistake.


Mr. Stephen Herndon, of Columbia, Tennessee, was wounded by the accidental discharge of a pistol on yesterday morning, at the store of Herndon & Johnson in this place. A negro boy while removing some clothes from a trunk in the room, took from it a loaded pistol which went off in his hand, two balls from which lodged in the face of Mr. Herndon, who was standing before the fire some fifteen feet off, one in the forehead and another in the left cheek, both glancing in a manner, as to be easily extracted inflicting no serious injury.

Thespians look out; read the communication of O.P.Q. and if you don't shortly perform some piece, as a learned Judge in Tennessee once elegantly expressed himself, we'll chaw you up like leaves in a hog-bed.
