the whole chapter of exquisitisms, but dolightod
rather in the sturdier qualities of the heart and
mind. The other trait was his exceeding liberality,
extending alike to all, to tha nnthankful and the
evil as well as to the gratoful and deserving. Where
could be found a more uase'tish friend ? And never,
su rely, was there a more generous foe. Oppression
and distress never appealed to him in rain. The
humblest obscurity did not escape his notice. Op
position to slavery was a mora! necessity of his na
ture. As a legislator he was liberal to such do
gTM that his political s?sociatci deemed it necessary
to provide a counterpoise in natures less impulsive
and sympathetic His rt effort in the House, if I
mistake not, was an appeal for an appropriation to
tbe publio charities of the District of Columbia.
Those who knew him in the private walks of lite
bear testimony to his own continual and abounding
charity, and "charity shall cover the multitude of
sins." We cannot wonder, therefore, that pious
hands were there to closa his dying eyes, making
intercession with Heaven in hit behalf, or that in
the supreme hour devoted women should administer
the holy chrism, efficacious, let us hope, beyond the
teaerung oi our creeds.
To most men there comes, sooner or later, a po-
rlod of inaction, of incapacity for further progress;
when the world csema to them incapable or becom
ing aay betterand every change is dreaded as like
ly to bo for the worse. This is the period of con
servatism, and usually comes with gray bairs and
failing eye-sight. It converses with tho past and
distrusts the future. Its look is backward and not
forward. ' This period Mr. Stevens never reached.
No good was ever attained without an attainable
belter. All his life he held the outposts rf thought.
Even in his closing hours, we are told, ho found
time for discourse of hopeful temper upon public
affairs and to augur the success cf an Administra
tion he could hardly have expected to 6eo.
As he was, so ho will long be remembered. ' He
has loft his impress upon the form and body of the
times. Monuments will be reared to his memory.
Art will be busy with her chisel and her pencil to
preserve bis features and the image of his mortal
irame. All will be done that brass and marble and
painted canvass admit of being dono. The records
of bis official acts will remain in -your archives;
pur hof-en words of commemoration will fall into
the channels of literature. But the influence of a
gifted mind in molding thought and givingdireclion
to events is not to be measured by words of com
memoration or by official records. It is as measure
less as the soul amd enduring as time. ' Long after
the brats and marble and painted canvass have dis
appeared it will still remain, transmitted from age
to age and through successive generations.' 11 Quid-

' Nashville, Jan, 1, 18;0. '
To His Excellency, Gov. Brownlow .- , , . ,
Dear Sie: I beg leave to draw veur at
tention very briefly to the Firtt Annual
Ileport which I had tbo honor of transmit
ting to you a few days itgo ; ; "
In that report 1 dwell upon the tact, tuat
wo havo entered upon an era which is in
favor of immigration, and of a development
of the resources of the State, calculated to
advance its intellectual and spiritual, ' as
well as ita material interests. : I speak of
tbo meivHiires of tho o.ird taken to draw
an intelligent and industrious immigration
to this State; of the etcps taken to obtain
Special information with regard to the sev
eral counties of tho State, and of tho chan
nels through "which that information has
been conveyed to the North and to Ger
many. I refer to the fact, that tho results
of my labors thus far, aro to bo found in
the number of immigrants actually drawn
hero by my instrumentality. In the inter
est I havo been enabled to excite on the
subject of immigration among a largo por
tion of tho people of this State, and of the
Northern Slates ; and in the hopefal char
acter of tho extensive correspondence I am
carrying on. With regard to the general
value of immigration, I state that popula
tion is the true basis of tho wealth of na
tion ; that by it the Stale, is a gainer, not
only by the bono and sinew which the im
migrants bring along with them, but also
from tho fact that in tho same meawure as
immigration improves tho material inter
ests of a Stato, it also furnishes the means
for tho advancement of its intellectual and
pniritual interests. I also refer to tho share
which tho construction of railroads has
had in the State of Tennessee, in making;
tho lands adjoined to them valuable, and to
the benefits to be derived from tho rcduc-!
tion of the railroad fare, in the caso of pas
sengers who aro known to como to tho
Stato to settle hero, or to prepare the way !
for the sottling of others. . j
With this brief reference to my Annual
Koport, I beg leave to connect tho follow
ing remarks : j
Inmost cases it does not depend on me
to direct the course of immigration to any
particular point. Tbero aro instances where
the obtaining of immigration must be prin
cipally ascribed to tho intelligent and per
severing efforts of individuals in certain
counties, whilo tho absence of immigration
fit others is to be traced to the fact, that no
jfjeasuro has been taken to circulate a
iiiowledge of tho resources of thoso coun
ties. In cases whero I am permitted to direct
the course of immigration, prudonco often
requires that I 6hould not give publicity to
the stops I am taking, lest ihcro should be
an unduo advanco in the price of property
offered for sale.
Two gentlemen by my advice, lately went
to Knox county. Ono bought tho Chart
ton farm. In this caso tho danger just
mentioned did not exist ; but it did in that
of tho other gentleman. Under these cir
cumstances it is easy to pco that I at times
may have tho appearanco of being inactive
with regard to a portion of a State, whilo
yet my attcntion may bo directed to it cf
lotlually. In this case, as in every other of a like
nature, it is well to cultivate a spirit, not
of envy, but of generous rivalry. Tho
Counties which havo taken a very active
fart in circulating an account of tneir re
sources, and which have drawn to them
selves a largo number of immigrants
brought in to notico the resources of many
other counties of tho State. A resident of
Warren county nonds mo a minute account
of tho Northern farmers who of late have
settled there, and carried away apparent
ly by tho encouraging characters of her
own statements, ho adds that in tho j-car
opon which we arc now entering Middle
Tennessee will bo flooded with immigrants.
If his hopes should be realized to any great
degree, Last and West Tennessee will bo
benefitted by it. The same holds true with
regard to any corsidcrabla immigration
Cowing into those sections of the State.
In conclusion, allow mo to s?y, that whilo
I gratefully acknowledge tho many proofs
of personal regard and kindness which you
have given mc for many years, I cannot
but dwell with special interest on the confi
dence you havo placed in mc since my offi
cial connection with the Board of Immi
gration. Tho measures initiated about a
year ago for the purpose of systamatically
advancing tho interest! of immigration will
havo their share in marking your adminis
tration as the beginning of a better era, and
as this New Year is now breaking upon ns,
I tender you my heartfelt wishes ; that you
may live to see tho growing of tho seed
which under your auspices I havo been
permitted to sow, and that the development
of tho nature resources of the State may
prove more and mere a firm and Lifting
loundatton lor the spread of light, and tho
establit-hment of kindness and good will
throughout the State.

The Claim of Tennessee for Additional
The claim of Tennessee for additional representa
tion is founded both upon justice and precedent. It
is not a gratuity that she asks, but lor tne recogni
tioa of what she believos to bo an intrinsic right.
A mere outline of tho facts will prcoct tho whole
Emancipation in Tennejsco was tha voluntary act
of her own loyal people, and not tho result of Con
trrcsiiionanal legislation. Mr." Lincolns proclama
tion of January 1st, 18C3, declaring the abolition of
Slavery in certain oi lue lusurvecnonarv cuiw, urn
not include Tennessoe, but, 'on the contrary,- ex
pressly excepted her from its operations. Tho first
act of reconstruction, however, though war still ex
isted, upon hor soil, wss the formal abolition of
slavery by popular vote, on the 22d of February,
1865. This whs entirely the spontaneous action of
the loyal people- Their doMre was to do away with
a great national evil, and place the tte in har
mony with the rest of her loyal States. A legisla
ture was elected in March, 18G5, and began in April
its work of reconstruction. That work was accom
plished under almost iosuperablo difficulties, and
resulted in the investment of all her colored citi
zens with fuli civil and polical rights. For these
acts our loyal people believe that tbey are entitled
to additional representation, as more than 120,000
of Federal population ' have been added to our roll
of citizens, as positively as if new territory had boon
annexed to the country. For instance, ilaino, bor
dering upon a foreign nation, and annexing a slip
of territory with 120,000 now population, wo would
all readily agree, ought to havo additional repre
Ecntalion, Leave off tho territory, which is no part
of representation, and Tennessee presents a parallel
case. Surely, then, it is asking but simple justice to
have this fact recognized, by admitting a represent
ation of those new citizens to the halls of the natioo.
.jj '. -i , objections. . . ; ! . - '
J It may bo objected that other Stale?, under this
theory, aro entitled to additional representation. If
Other States havo done like voluntary service to tho
Country voluntarily emancipated their slaves, and
then conferred upon tbem full civil and political
rights in a word, have created new citizens within
thoir own borders, and out of weakness have brought
Strength to the llepublic, then they, too, should bo
recognized. But no State, save Tonnessee, within
the broad boundaries of the Union, ran show Such .
labor, performed., Jler record, in this respect differs
irom mat oi every oincr riaie. ' not oniy nave new
citiaens, by her action, been added to the na. ion,
but the great eause of Human Bights hns icceived
therefrom new vigor, nnd tho iinmorul doctrines
Of our fat hois new illustration.. Adding a man to
the Republic is much ; but it is rnoro.t? add perma
nence and glory to tho causo of Iree 'government.
Also, tho newly-enfranchised citizens of Tennessee,
by their heroic devotion to the oounlry and to lib
erty, have shown themselves in every way worthy
of citizenship, and the admission of their represent
ative to Congress would impart to them the liveliest
satisfaction. The exercUo of thoso nowly acknowl
edged rights, have brought upon them suffering and
persecution.' Thoir ballots, always cast on the side
of freedom, have ofton been Etained with their own
blood, and handed in over the murdered corpses of
their fellows. Yet their unwavering faith in the
Government has given to their sufferings subjimo
heroism. . . . ; t
. i - . -: : PBECiDtHTS. : . r:
It is no now or extraordinary thing that Congress
is t ked to do.-, The case of California is familiar to
many. Seven other cases of irregular admission
save idready occurred in amercnt estates, so tnat it
is no now claim ?ut up for the hrst time; but ns a
question of justice and following precedent already
aiade, do I earnestly press their claim upon the re
presentatives ff the American people. More than
C0,000 true and faithful men from my own State,
have, by Ihetr ballots, expressed their wishes and
judgm-snt in this matter; therefore, I leave it for

- Harj'crs Bazaar, the youngest born of their pe

of fashion. It docs not propose to make or chango
tho fashions, but simply to show and illustrato what
they are. It covers tbo whole Cold of stylo in dross
for male and female, adult and child, not for Amer
ica alone, but for all tho world. Every articlo of
apparel, in fashion and fabric, is both illustrated
and bow to make it explained. This is a favorito
with the ladies in all parts of our country. Every
eye is delighted with it. If a woman is unable to
procure and array herself in the costliest and most
approval stylos of tho hour wo din hardly say day
it is icmo satifaction"for her to know what they
are. If she cannot walk the streets of Paris, London
or New York, she can see how both ladies and gen
tlemen are arrayed and costumed who live in or
visit all those places. The gontlemen do not dis
like to take an occasional peep at these illustrations.
Tbo rosding mattor is also abundant and appropri

general csrculalion will do much to diseminalo a
knowledge of the changes in the styles of dross, so
that New York and tho cities of the East will not
long enjoy a monopoly in this prsvilege cf fasbi in.

publish a great many novels, but mostly of tho
higher and worthior clats. Tho publishers claim
that in works of fiction they aro considerably sur
passed by some of the religious establishments, such
as the American Tract Society, Sunday School
Union, and even by the Methodist Book Concern.
They p ablish some of the bet and most tisoful books,
in comparison with which their works of fiction are
as the small dust of the balance. In general litera
ture and standard hitcries their listof lnxksis very
large, rich and varied.
They are constantly issuing now books. Aming
thoir latest issue, we notico one entitled " Jesus of
Naaarotb, His Life and Teachings ;" by Lyman Ab
bott. This work is founded on the four Gospels,
and illustrated by reference to the manners, customs,
religious beliefs, and political institutions of tho
time of our Saviour'a incarnation. It is an elegant
volume, copiously and v0ry finely illustrated with
deigns by Dcre Do Laroelw, Fenn and others. It
is one of tho most interesting, lifo-like, and appar
ently the most truthful account which we havo yet
seen It is thoroughly evangelical in spirit, and
well adapted to oppose the skeptical spirit of the
Creator Britain," by Charles Wentworth Dilke,
is an interesting record of trarel in English speak
ing counties during two years, from 1 SCO to lsoS.
It is accompanied with maps and illxUralions. It
is not only a very readab'e volume, but full of va
"Wild Life under the Equator," a namtivo for
young people, by tht marvelous traveler, Paul 1 Da
ChaiHu, will have more than the interest of Rob
inson Crusoe." The author gives an account cf
what be has witnessed in the wilds oi Africa, in a
rcion of country lyieg under or near the Ptor.
This a'. js finely and abundantly illustrated with
scenes of landscape, birds and beasts. mn and
things 'which grow so luxuriant, wild and strange in
that country. The old as well yo.mg, will read
this bo A with both picture and profit.
A littlo volume, entitled " Sacred Hymns for
Schols," is a fine collection or appropriate hymns
to be sung in the sehoo'-s of all grades, from the pri
mary department to the university. We wish the
volume special success, as it contains g.wd hymns
such as are worthy not oi.ly to cling to the memory
of tbo young, but to influence thoir life an 1 charac
ter, rs they wiH do if the book is used in our schools.
"PoiMitar EiiA-ation'' is tho title of a neat duode
cimo volume, by S. S. Rsniall, Superintendent of
Public Instruction in fho city of New York. This
is a well wriutii work on the QrH principles of pop
ular education rtd public inttruetion. U might t

We hear from London that Messrs. Da
vis, Slidcll, Mason, Dudley Mann, and
other chiefs of the ."Lost Cause," aro pre
paring to return . to the .United States.
There has been no practical -reason why
they should not havo been back years ago,
striving to do what they can toward repair
ing tho ruin they, have have 'wrought by
contributing to the revival of industry at
the South. We accept their return now as
cvidenco that the idea that existence under
the United States Government would hence
forth ba , intolerable . has . been definitely
abandoned. . The .'despotism of this cen
tralized Goverment" may be galling, but it
is. still better in thciri eyes than liberty
anywhere else. . "Negro .equality" may bo
odious, but there aro more odious things
abroad ; and utterly as the whole country is
going to the dogs, it is still better ths.n any
other country the sun shines on. , The em
igrants to Mexico have loag ago concluded
that Louisiana suits them better. The plan
of seeking for -the beauties of .Slavery in
Brazil no longer icaptijraica -.the Southern
mind, i .Even the attractions f Honduras
aro demised. . And now tho very leaders
who, of, all others, , might bo . expected., to
find lifo. under- the Government .that con
quered them, distasteful hasten ..-, their , ar
rangements for returning. Wo record the
fUct with pleasure and, confidently trust
that it is to bo taken as tho final acceptance
of the situation.,,, ; : -
