PERSONALS
Mrs. Robert E. Coxe, her son, Davies, and daughter, Louise, left for Yellow Sulphur Springs, Va., last week.

Mrs. Chas. H. Patton and Gen. Sam'l H. Moore have returned from New York.

Henry B. Dillard and Robert H. Wilson have returned from several weeks' sojourn at Petoskey, in Michigan, on Lake Michigan, opposite the island of Mackinaw. They speak, in rapturous terms, of the climate, fishing, and social enjoyment, they experienced. When we were sweltering with excessive heat, they were enjoying a temperature of 47 degrees, necessitating the use of Winter clothing and fires.

Mr. and Mrs. S. R. Cruse, of Memphis, are in our city.

Mrs. Kate D. Thompson arrived at the house of her brother, Dr. J. J. Dement, a few days ago. She has been heartily welcomed by many of her relatives, friends, and admirers.

We omitted, last week, to announce the return of Miss Mary Ann Cruse and Miss Carrington, from Virginia; Misses Kate Erskine and Laura May Wilkinson, from Warm Springs, N.C., and Miss Nannie Seabrook, from Memphis.

Many relatives, friends and admirers greeted Miss Rosalie Sheffey on her return home, on Saturday last, after a two years' sojourn in New York, where, by diligent study, she has made agreeable additions to her many graces and accomplishments, especially in vocal music and the French language.

Dr. Greenway purposes to leave Huntsville, to-morrow, to visit relatives and the scenes of his boyhood in dear Old Virginia.

We were pleased to see Dr. E. T. Taliaferro, of New Market, in town today, and, especially, to learn from him that the report of his wife's death was untrue, and her health is somewhat improved.

Hon. H. C. Speake is holding the Lauderdale Circuit Court at Florence, this week.

Mrs. Brickell, the venerable mother of Chief Justice Brickell, and Miss Eliza Brickell, his sister, have gone to Iuka Springs, in Mississippi.

Capt. Curry has gone, or contemplates going soon, to Springfield, Ohio, to superintend the manufacture of his Cotton Choppers, which are destined to work a revolution in cotton culture. He has about 30 already engaged. The price will be, we believe, about $125. He hopes to arrange for their manufacture in Huntsville. More to come….

On the last day of the recent Circuit Court of Madison, Capt. Milton Humes, as Chairman of a Committee appointed by the Huntsville Bar for the purpose, presented for record the resolution of the Bar in regard to Mr. Beirne's death, accompanied with the following chaste, truthful, and eloquent address:
It was my good fortune, as a young man, in coming to Huntsville, about fifteen years ago, to make the acquaintance of Mr. Beirne, and, in the lapse of years, it ripened into the strongest attachment for him as a friend, and great admiration for him as a man. Since them, such were my relations with him that I can bear personal testimony to many of the virtues he possessed. In the vicissitudes and trials which resulted from the war, he exhibited the highest order of manhood. He was unswerving in his devotion to the people of his section in the time of their political affliction and pecuniary disaster. His conduct and personal bearing, during those troublous times, was a great help to others who were not so strong; and, in the manly courage with which he faced adversity and passed through its storms, we are reminded of the grand old oak that lifts its tall form toward heaven. The storm, in its fury, may bend its branches, but the roots, from which its life-giving force emanates, are undisturbed, and, after the storm, it looks as sturdy, unbroken and majestic in its proportions as though the fury of the blast had not passed over it. So with Mr. Beirne. So deeply-rooted were the life-giving resources of his character in the eternal principles of truth and justice, that he passed through the storm of adversity unscathed, and with the majestic engaging in the active practice of his profession for sometime before his death, he always took a lively interest in whatever concerned the profession. He had a natural adaptation to the law, and, with the spur of necessity, would have become distinguished and pre-eminent as a lawyer. With a mind broad, well-balanced and comprehensive, he combined a moral force and an intuitive perception of right and wrong, which led him without precedent or authority, unerringly to the correct conclusion. In early life, he no doubt, mastered well the elementary and fundamental principles of the law as contained in Braxton, Coke, Hale, and Blackstone, and from these, united with the principles of right and justice implanted in the instincts of his nature and derived from his varied and extensive observation and experience, he was enabled by his own native intuitions and reason to solve all legal difficulties. He had the happy and original faculty of determining correctly a legal proposition without research, leaving to some one else the task of finding the authority for it in the books. It was the philosophy rather than the science of jurisprudence which he mastered and understood so well. In other words, his wisdom was derived from the law whose "seat is the bosom of God and whose voice is the harmony of the world."
