and was sentenced to twenty-one years

. (. i The Popular Drift. . ,
In his last letter the Washington cor
respondent of the Cincinnati Gazette
writes as follows concerning the Demo
cratic canvass for the residency it fJ
The Presidential question in th De
mocratic ranks grows interesting. Th
movement towards Vi ief Justice Chasu
swells after the fashion of an avalanche.
Already leading Dcmoc?ats aro reckon
ing- upon JSew xorK. ..New wipiana,
Vircrinia and several other Southern
States, Indiana, and possibly Pennsyl
vania, for him. The Democratic mem
bers of Congress have been carefully
canvassed on the subject, and out of th
whole number, only two are found seri
ously opposed to him, while one of
them has committed himself to his sup
port, in case he should be nominated.
The IFancock movement droops.
Some of his warm supporters begin to
talk of him as a good man for the Vice
Presidency on the ticket with Chase-
New York, it la now said, will not sup
port him ; and a Vice-Presidential can
didate from Pennsylvania has been
started Who may possibly divide with
him tho support of his own State.
Without New York, at any rate, his
chances are very Blight
Within the past ten dayB it-is known
that the Pendleton men have been great
ly discouraged. The attitude of New
York and the tendency of the Southern
delegations combine .with the sudden
development of the Chase movement
to inspire alarm. Nevertheless the West
will make a gallant fight for him, and
if it fails he will submit gracefully, as
lie always does, to the course of events.
Those who are talking about Pendle
ton's renewing in the approaching con
vention the -struggle which Douglas
made . at Charleston : and Baltimore,
know neither tho character of the man
nor that of his supporters. It has even
been asserted here today by those who
have tlie means of knowing, that it is
within the list of possible contingencies
that Mr. Pendleton may withdrew his
name In advance, or after the first bal
lot, and cast his strength for Lhase.
This, as yet, seems scarcely probable ;
but it may be set down as certain be
yond the 6hadow of doubt that Mr.
Pendleton will submit to the decision
of the Convention, whatever it may be,
and heartily support the nominee.
Treason Suit at Knoxville.

a very clear charge, upon all the points
made by the counsel on notn smcs. lie
held that the act of the Legislature of
18G1 repealing certain sections of the
law of the State against treason, was a
valid act ! No exception was taken to
his charge by oither side. The Jury re
tired for about half an hour, when they
returned a verdict of not guilty.
' Wo hope with the decision of this

Old Blount Indignant.
The t following from the Maryville
Republican speaks for itself:
i Whereas, we, the travis jurors of the
county of Blount, State of Tennessee,
in convention assembled, having to do
without our dinners for two days, and
walk two miles into tho country for
supper, lodging and breakfast, ou ac
count of tho inability of tho citizens of
Maryville to leod twelve men at once,
Resolve, That we do respectfully, but
most earnestly petition our honorable
County Court at its next quarterly
meeting to remove the County seat to
Tuckalcechco Cove, where men can bo
fed by tho dozens.
The following was offered :
Resolved, That we also suggest to the
honorable County Court the propriety
of appropriating money sufficient to
support tho citizens of Maryville dur

In his letter to Hon. L. N. Morris,
written on tho 20th January, 1801, Gen.
Grant says :
" In your letter you say that I have it
in my power to bo the next President
This is the last thing in tho world I do-
s re. I would reirard such a consum
matlon as being highly unfortunate for
myself, If not lor tho country."
Commenting upon tills, the most sen'
slble remark U. S. ever made, tho In
dianapolis Sentinel says :
This is certainly an honest and can
did confession. And wo opine tho pco
lo will agree with General Grant that
ils election to tho Presidency would bo
" highly unfortunato" both for himself
and tho country, and as it is tne last
thing In tho world" ho desires, they will
comply with hU wiwhes and allow him
to remain in his present position as
General of tho army a position which,

' The.Law of Usury, ' ' . x
Chancellor Shackleford, of fhe Nash
ville district, a few days 6ince delivered
an Important decision touching' the rate
of interest legally chargeable by the
National Banks. The following is tho
ubstanco of the opinion in tlie case of
,'Jf1v,l ici, executor, and the hcup and
t . editor of Alexander tail : - .
- Under the general laws upon tie sub
ject of usury In this State, the' party
loaning at a greater rate than six per
cent j where it is included in the? note,
forfeits the excess over six per cent
Docs the loan to Fall fall within the
general rule of law prohibiting usury,
or is It construed ana governed by tlie
acts of Congress creating the institu
tion? It is a corporate body and de
rives its powers from the law that paye
it vitality, and it becomes UeceSaTytd
examine tho law creating the corpora
tion. All acts within the scope of the
powers conferred aro valid, and those
prohibited are void. By the third sec
tion of the . act of Congress, entitled
"an act to provj.da a national currency,
secured by a pledge of United States
Knndo nml in nrnviiln fnv tha rtrenl.-
tion and redemption thereof," approved
June 3, 1864, it is provided that every
association may take, receive, ressrvo
and charge on any Joan or discount
made upon any note, bill of exchange,
or evidences of debt, , interest at the
rate allowed by the laws of tho Stato
or Territory where the bank is located,
and no more, except where, by the laws
of any State, a different rate is limited
for banks of issue organized in any
such State under this act; and where
no rateis fixed by the laws of the State
or Territory, the banks may take, re
servo or charge a rate not exceeding 7
per centum, and such interest may he
taken in advance, reckoning the days for
which the note, bill or evidence of debt
has to run ; and the knowingly taking,
or receiving, reserving or charging a
rate of Interest greater than aforesaid,
shall bo held and adjudged a forfeiture
of the entire interest which the notes,
bills or other evidences of debt carries
with it, or which has been agreed to be
paid thereon. ; ' '
Bv the 53d section of said act, it is
provided that, "if the directors of any
asso-iation shall knowinsrlv violate or
knowingly permit any of the officers
agents or servants of the association to
violate anv of tho nrovisions of this act
all the rights, privileges nd franchises
of the association derived from this act
shall be thereby forfeited." By the pro
visions of the 30th section ot the act
the association is expressly prohibited:
from taking or reserving a greater rate !
of interest than six per cent,' that be- J
ing tho rate of interest allowed bylaw
in this State. By the 53d section, it ify

1 How Times and Men Change.
We are indebted to a late number of
tlie Charleston Areir for the interesting
reminiscence which follows : ,; .
" Several years ago a certain young
united butes officer was wild, and as
unpopular among his army comrades
as he was reckless. During the great
Crystal Palace exhibition in New York
cky ho distinguished himself riding
his horse into a hat store, and perform
ed several feats which at last brought
him to a court-martial. The court as
sembled at Fortress Monroe, the officer
was tried and the finding given, but not
published " guilty of conduct unbe-

coming an uiuccr ana gentleman, in
formed of the finding, and anticipating
its approval, the Captain for 6uch he
was, went at once to Washington, called-
upon the Secretary of War, and
made a frank statement of tho case.
He acknowledged the fault, but said
that if punished by the court in the
manner he expected, he would be for
ever disgraced. In consideration of his
position as an officer, and the circum
stances connected with his family, he
begged permission to resign. The Sec
retory of War informed' him that such
a thing as resignation after charges had

the rule and practice, ot tue service.
But the officer bcggexl oh,' and finally
the Secretary yielded; tho resignation
was allowed J and tho soldier became a
civilian and merchant That officer was
General Ulvsses S. Grant,' and the Sec
retary of War ex-President Jefferson
Davis. These are the facts as they were
related to us by an officer of the United
rauchiso of the association. Tho bank,
by their answer, admit that they re
tained, when tho loan was made, inter
est at the rate of nine per centum. Up
on a review of tho authorities, I am
satisfied that tho loan of money by the
National Bank was in direct violation
of tho act creating tho bank, and that
the contract is void, and that the bank
is not entitled to recover the principal
aud legal interest The object and pur
poses of the law was to prevent the tak
ing of usurious interest and it is tho
duty of the courts to enforce it It is
demanded by every consideration of
We find the following in the Senate
proceedings of the 18th : .

commending that Geo. W. Jones, of
Tcnncssoe, and Geo. Houston, of Ala

Hendricks denounced this action as
shamelessly partisan. No radical Sen

Tho Best Government.
In tho House of Representatives, a
few days ago, Mr. Morgan showed that
in 'England tho taxes avcrngo onljf1 00
cents on the $100 of property, while

In other words, the taxes In tho United
States are more than four times as great,
in proportion to the wealth of the na

The Inviolability of the Confcs-
A curious case is just now engaging
tho attention of the U. S. Court in Kcp
tucky rcyiving the old, but ncver"8ct
tled question, aa to the inviolability of
the Roman Catholic Confessional :
Last Jtnuary, a negro, suspected of
having committed a rapo, was taken
from the jail at Frankfort by a mob
and hanged. Tho Grand Jury having
taken up the case, thereupon summon
ed Rev. Lambert Young, a Catholic
Driest who addressed the mob in. the
hope of dissuading them from murder,
to testify as to tne persons wnom ne
saw in the crowd. Mr. Young refused
on tho ground that his presenco was
solely because of his character as a
priest and was tolerated by the mob
with that understanding also that facts
coming to his knowledgo by reason of
such presenoe ae confidential. J udge
Ballard, however, has decided that the
fact? were not mado known to Mr
oung confidentially, but wero public,
and wouhThaVe' beeii known to any' one'
else who had gone to tho place of the
riot at tho time. Ho has, therefore,
committed tho witness to prison until
ho answers tho questions put by the
Grand Jury. ' '
Bonner, and that Biography.
Boniicr, of tho Ledger, says if tho Re
publican party don't make more out of
Hiram Saiamy Grant than ho (Bonner)
did out of tho biography written by the
old man (Grant's father,) they will have
made a bad investment He paid tlie
old man a good round sum for that bi
ography, yet somehow or another it not
only did not increase the clrculation.of
the paper, but actually reduced it. Bon
ner, hence, was very glad when he got
Hiram Sammy's note asking him as a
particular, personal favor to stop print
Tho Way to Do It.
A bill passed the United States Sen
ate a few days ago, removing tho disa
bilities from a thousand or more citi
zens of North Carolina, South Carolina
and Alabama. A glance over tho list
shows1 that tho most of fhoso who aro
in this bill were original secessionists,
many bf them among tho most bitter
opponents of the government during
tho war. They are alt iuu-biooacd rad
icals now, of course, and hence this
clemency on the part of tho radical ma-v

iTheew York Times remarks: Tho

the impression that it was all a pro

An old ncirro man liviuff near Chsprl
Hill, 41 miles from Nashville, in Mar
shall county, had been proclaiming for
some time past that suouiu any oi uic
Kuklnx invade his premises ho would
shoot them down. It appears that the
Kuklux Klan at that pl became vcrv
much offended at what they considered
unbearable insolence on the part of tho
negro, and determined to whip him for
using those expressions. Eight or nino
men, wearing the garb of tho Kuklux
accordingly visited the negro innns
yard Monday night told him to como
out of the house, for they intended to
inflict upon his person ten lashes that
would teach him for the future to hold
his tongue. They then took him out
from the houso some distance and had
given him four or five, licks, w hen to
thtiir utter amazement they were fired
into and some of them wounded with
shot from , an unknown quarter. , The

The affair is probably exaggerated.

Shooting1 Affair in Kentucky.
The Nashville Gazette is indebted to
Capt Barmorc of the Detective Police,
who has just returned from an expedi
tion in Kentucky, for an account of a
despcrato shooting affair that took
place in RusBcllvillc, Ky., on Tuesday
morning. Major Lawrence, formerly
an officer in tho Federal army, and now
a member of the Freedincn's Bureau,
aud a man named C. W. McCarty, an
ex-soldier of tho Confederate army, en
gaged in a political dispute which final
ly resulted in a terrible conflict with
fire arms. Both men commenced shoot
ing about the same time, but McCarty,
with more deadly aim. The Major
was shot through the body in three dif
ferent places and no hopes were enter
tained of his recovery. McCarty is al
so severely, but perhaps not fatilly
wounded. The affair is creating con
siderable excitement about tho town.
