of the irameDBO profi's to b6 ruined

"I suppose you know," said Gen.
Warner, "that there are three greet

large charcoal iron producing region

in Alabama, are subdivisions of the
. main districts.
"The great Clinton vein of red hem

geologically to the upper rjilurian pe

from which all the charcoal iron of
these States is now made, and which
is also largely used by the coke furn

developed In Alabama, along and con
tinuous to the Selma division ol the
ICjbt Tennessee, Virgiuia aud Georgia

counties, Tenn., while greet deposits,
as ynt untouched, ar found in Frank

appealing f ir good faith toward the
Indiana, and especially toward tne
Cherokeies. II any gentleman should
appeal for Rood faith toward tbe Cher

had formerly resided in that State,
and the nnecetcn ci the gentleman's
constituent, after having broken faith
with them, Lad driven them from tae

Mr. Barne It is unfair lu tae gen
tleman to make an attack on my Stnte.
What he haa sud is not true. And
even if it were true, it would show

try and he haj degenerated f torn bie.
Laughter and applauBo.
Mr. Springer expreesed his gratifi
cation at hearing that the gentleman
bad improved upon nis ancestry.
Otherwiee he never Would bave known

the bill. Mr. Springer declared that
the great obstacle to the passage of

Cherokee otrlo to a cattie company.
That company leased it for $100,000
and BUbleated it lor SjuU.UW, leaving
a margin of $100,000 with which to
corrupt the Indinns and tl send a
powerful lobby to Washington. i.be.
