-Thc Washington correspondent of the New

a number or schemes or internal improvement
and commercial communication upon Congress.
One of these is a railroad on the line ol' thc thiriy
secoud parallel, and cognate railroad schemes;
another, thc rccoastruetioa of tho Mississippi
levees; ano: her, thc line of steamers from Norfolk
to the Mediterranean ports, which, besides cap?
turing thc commerce o.r Southern Esropo, is ex?
pected to causon large immigration to Virginia
and thc Southern states. President Grant is said
to ravor this line, and to take much int crest in the
subject or the Mediterranean commerce. Another
Une strougly urged is between New Orleans and
the Mexican ports ou the Guir. lt is stated that
while thc commerce of the United States with
Mexico ls only $8.70U,O-JO, that of Great Britain ls
$33,400,000, thc result ur her steamship lines, and
that nearly thc whole or this could be diverted to
New Orleans aud New York, u ls noteworthy in
this connection, that Southern politicians are no
longer averse to the extension or national aid to
measures or commercial development, and that
they mean to claim ror their section thc same
favor that li is already been given to enterprises
more immediately, beneficial to thc Nom?. Thc
old State Bights mea who formerly relused B.jv.
ernment aid, have accepted the new situation,
and mon of th?tn say they want a fair share or
?hegood things that are going around."
-The reading or Richardson's gushing love
letter to his "darling" Abby, at the McFarland
trial on Friday, creped the greatest excitement
among the spc-tators, and they lnvolunuid'y
crowded neuer the reader, manirestlng an in?
tense desire to citeh every word. Thc court
room was remarka >'v quiet, ld nothing contd
be heard save the ri.iglng tones of thc cnn
re"? v?i-e. as he emphasire 1 every word oi thc- i
extraordinary cpisib. He did not read lt lmr- I
rledlv, Wut slowly and deliberately, and as he went
over sentence alter sentence of thc letter, he
wooli* ever and anon stop for a short time and
loot steadily at the jury, as if to study the effect
on them of what he was reading. To say that
the jury looked dumbfounded would not give
thc iaintest idea or tito expression or utter as?
tonishment which the countenance or every ono
of them wore when the reading was Mulshed.
The sensation the letter produced on thc audi?
ence was utterly indescribable. As the hideous
facts were disclosed, the prisoner went, although
it was evident that ho exested his utmost to re?
press his reelings. He bowed bis head in his hands
when was read that part of the letter revealing
the rac: tba: "long years" before he ha l ever
dreamed or the blow that was to rall upon him,
there was an under-current even then that was
destined to carry away from him those he loved
above all elsa on earth. Although little Percy,
sot quite understanding why his rather was so
cast down, endeavored to attract his attention
by taking hold or his hand and tugging at lt In a
child sh sort or way. he paid uo atteution to him,
and sat immovable as a statue, with his bead
burled iu his hands all the while.
Promise and Performance.
If tho financial secrets of the present
State Government could now be laid bare,
as, at no distant day, they assuredly will be,
the people would with one voice demand
that waste and extravagance should cease,
and that our public affairs should bc con?
ducted, as of old, with honesty, economy
and efficiency. In due time the transactions
of thc Land Commission, of the Financial
Agency at New York, of thc Bureau of Ag?
ricultural Statistics, and other kindred insti?
tutions, will bc exposed and explained, and
then only will it bc known how far thc State
has been plunged into debt by these three
years of reckless spending. The facts and
ligures wbicl-: the State otlicials make pub?
lic, and whose correctness cannot be gain?
said, arc interesting rcadiug, all thc same:
for oven they show that tito one great need
of tho State-for merchant and mechanic
artisan and laborer, poor and rich, gentle
and simple-is that honest, intelligent, aud
frugal government, which can only bc ob?
tained by thc triumph at the polls of the
CITIZENS' REFORM PARTY.
In his report submitted to the Legislature
in October 31, 1868, thc Comptroller-Gene?
ral, himself a Radical, submitted his esti?
mate of thc amount of money which would
be needed for carrying on tuc State Govern?
ment during thc year ending October 31st,
1SC9. This estimate was carefully prepared,
and was "deemed sufficient (by the Comp?
troller-General) to pay tlte current expenses
"of the State Government." Comparing this
estimate of what was "deemed sufficient"
for thc year ending October 31, 1869, with
tho amount actually spent during that pe?
riod, thc taxpayers may see for themselves
how far the present, government fulfils its
promises, and husbands the resources of thc

. $214,700 303,491
In the three items of salaries, legislative
expenses and contingent funds-the "pin
"money" of tho departments-the increase
is, in round numbers, 5120,000, and nearly
one-half of this large amount is chargeable
to the swollen pay of thc State officials.

It will be observed that in some instances
the outlay was less than the estimates. This,
however, is chiefly thc case with tho Lunatic
Asylum and the Deaf, Dumb and Blind.
These charities are stinted, in order that
arrears ot interest may be paid-not for thc
advantage of the people, but for the benefit
of speculators in and out of office.
In addition to thc amounts already set
down, tho following sum3 were spent for
which the Comptroller-General made no es?
timate at all:
Not ot ?mated tor
Five Schools. 39,023
County School Commissioners. 13.791
Transient Poor. 12,050

S10.00? paid for investigating the condition
of the Third Congressional District, the
$13,000 for printing, the $20,000 for the
Slatchonse, und their like?
Grouping thc different amounts together,
it is found that the estimates for the year,
under the specified heads, were 5777,390, and
the actual expenditures wore 31,296,752.
The expenses of the year were more than
HALF A MILLION DOLLARS in eXCeSS Of the

"deemed sufficient" for tho expenses of the
Is there needed tiny stronger argument for
the CITIZENS' PARTY-for RETRENCHMENT and
T2?c Pacts of the Case.
Governor Seiner, of Tennessee, is unable
to satisfy either of the advocates or thc op
poneuta of more Congressional interference
willi the State of Tennessee, but lie promises
that if Federal soldiers are placed under his
control he will maintain peace. The truth
of the case seems to be that Tennessee is in
a disturbed and distracted condition, the re?
sult not of political feeling, but of the gene?
ral demoralization caused by the war, the
Damerons'private feuds which survived it,
and the anomalus condition of society dur?
ing the social and political changes of the
last few years. Whatever the number of
lawless acts, the "rebel" suffers a3 often as
the "loyal" man. Botli classes enjoy a prac?
tical immunity from the consequences of
crime; both classes make laws and break
them, and both classes, with few exceptions,
repudiate any further meddling by Congress
r. iih Hie concerns or their State.
The accoiuits which come to us from
Washington of the condition of Tennessee
are too highly colored to i.<? worthy of con
?'tenco, but thc following extracts from thc
letter of a correspondent of the New York
Evening Post appear to contain the gist of
the facts of the case:
'.I hare endeavored to give fairly the state?
ment of each side, that it maybe seen how
difficult it is for one at the North to under?
stand our real condition. So thoroughly par?
tisan, on one side or thc other, arc most of thc
reports sent from the State, that we somet imes
despair of being correctly understood. Now,
though it would bo very unsafe to follow
either of thc above statements, neither one is
altogether untrue. That in Tennessee, Union
mcu, or Northern men, or colored men, as a
class, are unsafe In life or property ls utterly
untrue. That they arc ever murdered or out?
raged, as belonging to any of these classes, is
either a very foolish or a very wicked false?
hood. Thus, n statement has been made on
thc floor of Congress that all thc Union men
in one ol the districts of this county had been
notified to leave, and that one had been mur?
dered already. It was false, of courso. But
when we are told that human life in Tennessee
is perfectly or even tolerably protected by the
law, one cannot but demur. Murders and out?
rages arc not invented by politicians, though
their causes may be misstated for party ends.
That these occurrences have been unpleasant?
ly frequent during the past few months is no?
torious, and our people have depl ored lt. It
ls a matter which afreets ali classes and all
parties. The trouble does not arise from any
rebellious spirit, aa our Radicals delight to be?
lieve, but lies far deeper than that. It. eau
be traced back to the days of slavery, when
the law protected property, btu left life to the
individual. * ? * . Moreover, it can?
not be denied that there ls in certain parts ol
thc State a lawless, a brutal element, and in
some cases gross outrages have been cominiu
ted, though, no doubt, they have been greatly
exaggerated. Thc evils of this unsettled 6late
of society have fallen upon all classes alike,
though undoubtedly the negroes, as thc most
helpless, have suffered the most. But that it
is unsafe for them to live in the country, is
simply ridiculous. They swarm in and about
our cities and frequent the vilest haunts of
vice, while many of our country people And it
almost impossible to obtain household ser?
vants. These facts are notorious here. None
deplore these outrages more sincerely i.han
tho citizens themselves, and if the Unltod
States troops are really needed In any locality
to assist tho civil authorities, they will bc heart?
ily welcomed by the great mass of the peoplel
It ls no kindness to tho Southern people to
conceal any of these facts. Indeed, if this ap?
prehension of Congressional interference
arouses each community to tho Importance
of protecting life by law, and of repressing
lawlessness of every kind, it will not be with?
out some good effect."
What Tennessee needs is, to bc let alone.
Necessity and self-interest will, in time, bring
about a temp?rance of act and a law
abiding spirit more lasting and sincere,
though longer in coming, than the tranquilli?
ty which reigns under tho rule of thc Win?
A GENTLEMAN writing from Barnwell
says: "The tax collector is here again.
"Thi3 tax affair is nothing better than rob
"bcry in disguise. Heaven only knows
"when the end shall be." Our correspon?
dent is reminded that Heaven helps Them
who help themselves, and that tho only
way for our people to help themselves is Ly
working vigorously for the CITIZENS' RE?
