OVER THE STATE
We cannot too highly commend the following terse personal which we find in the Guntersville Democrat of April 9: W. J. Douglass, with his lovely bride, arrived at home on Thursday of last week, and he is now at his post in this office ready to receive and receipt for all dues to the Democrat.
We note, with pleasure, the following personals in the Guntersville Democrat: J. A. B. Allison, after his protracted illness is again in his store prepared to buy wool, hides, butter, eggs and all other country produce.—Jno. D. Taylor has been beautifying his residence by putting a new fence around it.—J. W. Perkins has considerably improved his office by having the walls, doors, window an furniture therein repainted and otherwise repaired.—[We are specially glad to note that John Perkins has taken hold with fresh heart.]
Mr. I. N. Cochran, of Downey City, California, brother of our townsman, Thos. J. Cochran, arrived in this city this week on a visit to relatives and friends. Mr. Cochran was raised in Marshall County, and when the war came up he went out with the Forty-ninth Alabama, and when the war closed he was liberated from prison at Champ Chase. He then, in company with his brother Wm., went to the State of New York, where they went to work to procure means to take them to California. Sometime after reaching their destination, William died, and Mr. I. N. (Newt) has remained in that State ever since.—Guntersville Democrat.
