The bill to repeal ttie net to amend the
usury laws of tlio Stale und to establish
a conventional rate of interest, was re

on its third rending. A similar bill, we
believe, has been rejected in the Senate.

Tho heavy enow (storms on tho Plains

Resignation of ,Tnlge Xelson.
It will be seen by the following para
graph from the Knoxvillo Chronicle of
the 20th ultimo, that the lion. T. A. V..
Xki.sox lias resigned hi seat on Ihe Su

of the language with which our iJcpub

lion. T. A. 1!. Xelson lias resigned his
position as one of the .fudges of the Su

Mr. dames T. Shields, of irainger coun
ty, who has been appointed by (!ov.

nor consented to the ieiiie:-t of Judge
Xelson with reluctance, and Ihe latter
gentleman received the official accep
tance of his resignation only yesterday.
Dili iug the time Judge Xelson has
been on the llencli he has won golden

policy, and almost williout organization.
Thus cea -ing to be a Xational pnrtv.il
has degenerated into a sectional faction ;
and ii hopes for recognition and power
only as an adjunct to some new organi

At first vi( w this state of the Oppo

any event, lie nt least two candidates
for President. So long, therefore, as
"the Iiemocracy" remain suiliciently
