Several parlies are endeavoring to get np an excursion to Nashville to attend the oen-tennial celebration now going on there.

The position, which was opened on oerenniil diy, is said to be a very creditable affair, and Nashville is reaping a lich harvest from tie energy and enterprise which herci'Jzons have displayed on this occasion. These expositions are becoming so popular and profitable lint it is time Montgomery was getting interested in one. The Southern Knight, organ of the Knight cf Pythias, published in New Or leans, thus speaks of the Grand Lodge offi cials of Alabama: We must compliment the Grand Lodge of the Knights of Pythias of Alabama upon their selection of grand officers, espeoially so, upon the election of Hon. George F. Taylor, of Montgomery, as Grand Keeper of Keeords and Seel. In our opinion it would be almost impossible for any body of men to select an officer better qualified for this important position than Bro. Taylor, whose past record as Grand Chancellor and Supreme Itepreaentaliveisoneof which he may justly be proud of. 1880. SPRING 1880. AND SUMMER DO YOU WANT TO SAVE MONEY ?

We learn from the Columbus papers, of the death at Greenville, Miss., on the 8th inst., of Capt. Wm. G. Andrews, formerly of this oily. He was well known as clothing merchant and as Captain of the famous Montgomery Bines. He was a son of Judge Samuel Andrews, of Cdumbus. His friends in this oity will deeply regret to learn of his death. Capt Andrews was at the time of death in hit 55th year of his age, Oid aunt Mil'y Barnes, a oolored woman, died last Monday in this oounty. She was brought to this State in its baby hood in 1819, and always served in the Barnes' fam ily until she grew too old.

She was brought to the State by the mcther Elkanah, and Hessikiah, Mrs. Allie Boiler Mary Shepard, E izabeth Mosely and Tracy Tally. Sho was the nurso of Elkanah Barnes.

A young man olerking in a grocery store in Atlanta, a few days ago was very much exolted by receiving a visit from his lady love at his plaoe of business. The twain soon were engaged in earnest conversation, and she thoughtlessly placed her linger beneath the instrument nsed for cutting off tobacco, and known as the guillotine. About (his time he desired to give emphasis to a remark he was making, and struck the tobacco cutter a terrific blow, whioh had the effeot of severing the young lady's finger at the first joint. She did not scream nor faint, bat quietly remarked to the young man that he had cut off her "sewing finger," thereby delicately hinting that he had deprived her cf her chief means of gaining a subsistence. AU of which comes of making love in a grocery store. Most of our State exchanges this week report heavy wind and rain storms during the past week, as having occurred in every section of the commonwealth. In some portions of North Alabama the damage by these storms was considerable. In Jackson oounty tha village of Paint Rock as al. ready stated in our telegrams was almost destroyed and in that vicinity many farmers were seriously Injured in the destruction of fencing, oat houses and orops. The storms appear to have followed a line from East to West and from North to South, and while doing very (.serious damage in their path, each way, were not at all felt a few hundred yards beyond. One gentleman In Jaokacn oounty had all his fencing and ont-housos destroyed, while a neighbor living within sight escaped the least injury to his proper ty. So far the reports . do not show any great Injury to the orops. In some looal! ties vast quantities of valuable timber were blown down and will probably prove a total loss, as there are no means of utilizing it just now.

As before annonnoed, Prof. Cromwell on yesterday evening began his series of exhi bitions with"VersailIes and its Art," the first scene, however, bang a view of the grand old Sphynx which, for thousands of years has looked down on the shifting scenes and sands of Egypt the mighty pyramid of Cheops looking np in imposing grandeur m the baok ground. Then the Professor plaoed before his au dience some of the most famous views to be had in Versai'les, including palaces, foun- tiins, stitues, &o., interspersed with oc- cational pictures of other scenes and ohar-aoters. The art whioh plaoes on a soreen exaot pictures, in all their pure and glittering whiteness, of some of the most renowned marbles ot the world, Is truly won. derful, and oan orly be appreciated by being seen and studied. The olosing allegory, "Rook of Ages," was a strikingly grand and boautifui soene. Prof. Cromwell has a pleasant, and at times quaintly humorous, conversational manner of explaining his exhibitions that adds muoh to their enjoyment, to which he adds exqui iite touohos on the organ in the intervals. Truly ho is well worthy of patronage. Hon. Jno. W. A. Sanford delivered the Memorial oration, on the 26th nit., at Opelika. We know that the address did credit to Colonel Sanford and the oause In which ha spoke, and regret that it was not published in extenso. The Opelika Observer Bpeaks of tha address as fellows : After music by the band and ohoir, Rev. B. F. Riley led in prayer, after which the orator of the day, Hon. Jno. W. A. San ford, of Montgomery, was introduced with appropriate-remarks by Mr. Ohas. Barnes. Cel. Sanford is an orator, scholar and statesman of whom the people of this State are justly proud, and on this occasion added new laurels to his brilliant reputation. The address throughout was eloquent in the highest degree, and was an honor to the head and heart of the distinguished soldier and gentleman. "The Lost Cause" and the illustrious deeds of Southern soldiery open ed up a wide field for oratory and the subject was handled in a masterly manner. Beautiful in thought, elegant in style, dis- lioot In utterance, the address held the interest and attention of the audience till the C'.oao. . - Robert P.Smith, Chiletburg, Vs., writes: "As for Tutt's Pills I don't know how I could do without them. I have had the liver disease over twenty years. Two years ago I get your Pills. Tney bava entirely oured me. I always keep them. My neighbors know I have them and send to me for them.

The gis also publishes the following : Tbi will be a great year for eleotrioa' storms, and as a consequence there will be some magnificent volcanio display and grand earthquakes in tha cavetous regions of tne eartn. mere is no ditterenoe between an earthquake and an airquake, except in effeot They are. both produced by electrical snocks, wmoh are supennduoed by moleoular vibrations and pressure. To understand tne oause of an eleotrioa 1 earths quake, all that is neoessary is to understand the nature or a thunder cloud. In earth quake regions, whenever the atmosphere becomes very oppressive, there is danger of a terrestrial electrical shock.
