The Franking Privilege.
The Democratic Senate recently passed
the Post Office bill, sticking on to it, an
amendment abolishing the franking priv
lege, but very properly the House struck
out the amendment by a vote of two to
one. The Democracy, have all monie3 of
the Government under their control
they have the Post-Offices, Mail Agents,
and Mail-Contractors, and can circulate
what documents they desire the people
to see. They know that a majority of
the preseut Congress are opposed to them;
that this majority will ferret out an un
told amount of stealing, forging, and most
revolting corruptions, carried on under
the sanction of this infamous Adminis
tratien, and they are not auxious to have
the facts with the proof, franked all over
the country, as they know they will be, if
this privilege is continued. When the
Democracy had a majority in both Houses,
which was for many year3, and they could
suppress investigations in their official
corruptions, as they did they hot only
did not repeal this privilege of the
People, as it really is, but they dii not
attempt to do it; for, then they cculd
send out matter te suit themselves, when
in and on the eve of the Presidential
contest. But now, wh?n the corruptions
nay the astounding frauds and robber
ies, of the immaculate Democracy, arc
about to be exposed, by a talented array
off men, actually pledged to make these
disclosures, this Democracy have become
wonderfully economical ; and instead of
cutting of the frauds that have be?n prac
ticed to the tune of millions, in the Pub
lic Printing, Mail conveyances, Jobs and
Contracts, they are trying to shield offi
cial thleie., and to imitate the British
Government in the repeal of a mis called
jiricilegp, which imposes enormous labor
nd expense upon the Opposition mem
bers, in order to give the honest people
lighl for members of Congress pay for
every speech, and every paper they frank
We are not surprised to find the vil
lainous Democracy, in vitfw of wLa't is to
come, seeking to repeal this privilege,
but we are greatly astonished to find the
whole Tennessee Delegation present, wire
drawn into the iuiquitous snare, except
Nelson and Maynard, who, like bold,
fearless, and discerning men, met it. and
denoubced it. Brabson was at home,
on a visit to a sick family, or he would
nave been found battling side by side
with his East Tennessee colleagues. That
there have been abuses in franking there
can be no doubt. That these can be cor
rected by wise legislation, without abul
ishing the frankibg privilege, there can
be as little doubt. We repeat, the won
der is, that this measure should emanate
from a Democratic Senate, when a ma
jority of the House are opposed to the
Administration; when that majority is
pledged to ferret out the abuses and cor
ruptions of the Government; and when
the only means to thousands, in the inter
im, by which a kuowltdge of such ex
posure can be made known, is through
the franking privilege, and members of
Congress, for the reader will bear in mind
that many honest voters, and patriotic
men, are too peer to even pay for a news
paper. The Democratic idea that a mil
lion and etgJit hundred thousand will be
saved is a humbug; for no mail carrier
will transport the mail for any thing less
than he now does, as he cannot know
that members of Congress - will not pay
the postage on their document, or that
political parties will not raise a fund to
do so,, and thus force him to carry them,
his mail bags being as much loaded as
ever. Gen. Millson, a Virginia Demo
crat, made a speech against this humbug
of a reform, which we heartily approve,
and will hereafter publish. Mr. Nelson,
of Tennessee, also made a brief speech,
which states the points, and which we
most heartily approve, and will copy.
The franking privilege was first assum
ed by the Commons of Great Britain, in
the year 1660. When first attacked by
an ameEcmentcffcred by Sir Walter Earl
to the Post Office bill. This is where Dem
ocracy got the idea. At the same time
the privilege was vehemently denounc-,
edby that great lawyer, Sir II. Finch,
who called it "the poor man's proviso,
for the use of medicans, below the dig
nity of the House," while the Speaker,
Sir II. Grimston, declared on account of
its adaptation to poor men, he was asham
ed to ask -the House to vote upon it, as it
ought never to have existed! The
House of Lords demurred, and it became
the law of the land. While tbe British
Lords and aristocrats, were denouncing
this poor mans privilege in England,
they were abusing it, by membeis of
Parliament sending to their families un
der frank, shoes, boots, coats, dresses,
lace, partridges, haunches of venison, and
even whole bucks ! One member of Par
liament, franked a whole pack of hounds
from one country estate to another,, by
installments of ten dogs per day, still de
nouncing the privilege as intended for
poor men aud begaars. Now these Dem
ocratic Senators seek to imitate the Brit
ish Lordf, and Dukes ! Still, they are
the only friends of tbe poor man !

" If. Miller, Sen & Co., of Alexandria, Va.,
have a fine Stock of Earthern, China and
Ode Tows. We had occasion to ride through
the most of our town recently, on horseback,
and at almost every point, we beheld visible
marks of improvement. New houses are going
up, old ones are undergoing repairs new fen
ces are everwhere to be seen and the town
looks as if some one wa looking after its inter
ests, and realy desire its growth and prosperity
On our business streets, every thing' begins
to wear a cheerful aspect our merchants are
buying and sc Ting and the indications are, tba
there is a revival of business with us. Our
population is increasing, from the fact that we
have no vacaut houses. AYe want more vacant
houses to accomodate new applicants, and we
want more mechanics to build those houses.
We have enough of business mn without capital
we want real working men, men, who will not
stand about on the streets, cut sticks and goods
boxes, and go in and out of liquor shops like
bees, complaining that no work is to be had !
We want men who will take off their . coats,
roll up their sleeves, and show by laying hold
of building materials, thattbey don't regard it
as degrading to work for an honest living.
Fops, up-starts, gamblers, drunkards, and poor
white men, who are above labor, are more
numerous with us, than are needed, and we
would like to see these striking out for other
Strawberry Plaiss College. The Spring
Session of this Institution commenced on the
20th inst, and we are pleased to learn, it opens
well, and promises success. Rev. Mk. Scruggs,
the principal, is giving general .satisfaction.
Mr. B. F. Mitchell is in charge of the Boarding
House, and knows how to conduct such an
institution. Boarding can be tad at $1,50 in
the Steward's HalL Tuition, in the Primary
Department, $8 Collegiate, 12 to. 15 dollars.
This renders education cheap, in a beautiful
locality, on the great Rail Road passing east
and south, and in a neighborhood proverbial
for its good morals.
The Board resolved on putting ' the College
out of debt, and in a condition to be useful,
by raiseing a fund of $5,000r and since Octo,
ber last, the efficient and energetic Agent,
Rev .Wm, II. Rodgers, has secured $2,500 or
half of that am ount, and by "'Harvest, will
have secured the whole amount.
