OUR CAMPAIGN RATES.
We are very: glad to state to our friends
that, thus far, our efforts to make the
Chronicle an interesting and acceptable
paper have met with unprecedented suc
cess. We do not think a paper was ever
begun under more favorable auspices than
have surrounded .the Chronicle. We
make these statements not iu a boastful
way, but because we know them to be
true. But in 'view of the importance of
the approaching Judicial and Congression
al elections, and desiring to place the
Daily Chronicle within the reach of
every voter having the advantages of the
daily mails, we have concluded to offer
our Daily from now until after the Con
(ressiowil election, next Xovembcr, for the
sum of TWO DOLLARS. This is lower
than our daily rates, and we adopt it only

WHY SO SENSITIVE 3I0W1
The Democratic organ of this city, assign
ed, by general consent, to do the dirty
work of the parti', had something to say yes
terday about the representative men of the
Republican party, whose names we publish
ed as the Executive Committee for this city.
It selects a few of the colored men named
on the Committee, and attempts to make
"spert of them. It is extremely sensitive
about their being put forward as represen
tative men of their colored friends", ialid by
suppressing facts, attempts to'mvb'an im
pression on its readers, that they consti
tute all, or the larger portion of the Com
mittee. The Republicans of this city very
properly and justly placed on those Com
mittees, some colored men o represent the
large and respectable colored vote "of this
city. So far as the Committees are con
cerned, we are perfectly willing to compare
them with r the .Executive Committee.of
the Democracy, upon any. basisj they may
choose. There are just as good men named
on the , Committees, as there are iu this
county, and there is not one of them, white
or colored, that we are not willing to com-
. pare with any one connected with the organ
referred to. As to the colored men, the
Press and Herald need not feel so sensi
tive about their appearing as committee
men, fori Rnl we are misinformed,' ti:ere
were soae colored men iu the "Social Or
ganization," at Chattanooga, into which
one of its staff was inveigled in 1866.
As to its personal assault upon Maj. Mur

But, notwithstanding the 1 fact that since
that time we 'have only been contemptu
ously noticed as the " radical organ,'' and
have been deprived of the benefit of the
publicity we, before that time enjoyed, by
an nwjisional notice in its columns, we still
thrive, and, what is still more remarkable,
gain, almost every day, new subscribers
from its own readers. Some of our most
enthusiastic friends are men who have
heretofore read the Press and Herald un
der the impression that it was a newspaper,
and they have intimated to us that the
Press and Herald quit noticing us through
its columns, not so much to lessen our pub
licity as to stop us from giving them the sort
of publicity, through our colums, they felt
was becoming very damaging. It may be
true that this "organ" grinds very unpleas
ant musk-, and in view of recent develop
ments we me induced to think so. Our
new subscribers take the Chronicle be
cause they want the news and some read
ing matter, in addition to the interesting
notices of "the saloons," &c, "mixed

part of the space of that enterprising pa

has succeeded remarkably well. But we
should not be surprised if, in its efforts, it

the country boy did in trying to snuff out
the gas jet in the New York hotel.
In conclusion, we beg to assure the Press
and Herald that we appreciate very highly
the patience and fortitude it exhibits in its
embarrassing position. We know that, oc
casionally, it must suffer excruciatingly,

OUR SASHYILLE LETTER.
From our Special Correspondent
Nabhtillic, Tkkv., June 8, 1870.
Law-maker ee a jrreatdeal of trouble. They
don't have a very happy time, & a general
thins. It is fo necessary for some men, when
they get into the Legislature, to at once be taken
with an intense dofire to visit Washington at
the expense of the people; they become- such
timid patriots ; they are w fearful that they may
do or say something that will be used against
them when , they run for Congress. We recol
lect once to have heard one of these gentlemen
express himself thusly: "I could do very well
in politics if "it were, not for those records they
keep ; one has to b so careful, trim so nicely,
lest his record may be used against him." This
it is that makes 'timorous mortals M of many
who, on the stump, defiedj any one . who dared
do more than they; but let them once get warm
in their seats where laws are made, and they be
come quiet, meek and apparently modest Had
Hogarth lived in these days, what a field for his
pencil would a 8tate Legislature have afforded.
The work at the house on the hill goes brave
ly on. We have any amount of bills to educate
the dear children, and they all have one object,
to-wit: to have the children educated at the ex
pense of their parents, and the job supervised
by a commissioner, who is to get a nice salary
for doing nothing. It is very apparent to the
casual observer that this great State is blessed
with i few respectable, aristocratic paupers,
who are too lazy to work, and can't get a good
chance to indulge in kleptomania (that's the
polite term) ; who being respectably connected
with some of the very first families, with pedi
grees at least two generations in length, who
seem to enlist the sympathies and occupy the
time of the august body who are shaping the
destinies of this State. Perhaps we may see
some of this poor, proud, lazy aristocracy pro
vided for, tor scarcely a day passes that some
scheme is not prepared to pension off these in
competents, .but so far they have failed. Let
us all hope they muy continue to do so.
We have a gentleman in this city that is con
sidered good at figures his reputation as a ma
thematician is world-wide but he came to grief
this morning, somewhat in this way : One of the
few Radicals who hold a seat in the Legisla
ture, consequent on theplebian notions of East
Tennessee, met him and submitted the follow
ing problem:' ' ffit took $8,000 to get control of
the Press aheLTmus, and an unknown quantity
of lucre to 'gobble' the Whig, and $28,000 to se
cure 'additional aid' for the Knoxville and
Kentucky Railroad, how much will it cost to
secure the confirmation of a certain gentleman
as Director of, say, the Knoxville and Kentucky
Railroad T' . Tha man of figure looked aghast,
but, emulating the fame of Bowditch, Calhoun
and others of that party who had figures on the
brain, he went for the problem. After eight
hours labor, he called on the- Radical member,
and, with tears in his eyes, he made the humili-

Perhaps, the future. Xuuh verrons.
Several resolutions, providing for adjourn
ment, have been introduced, but imuu have
passed. The watchers, the head-lights of Con-srvative-rebel-Democracy,
are afraid to ad
journ. They seem to be in doubt about some
body. Who can it be? They can't doubt the
Governor. They can certainly trust him. He
did all that man can do for them. They make
laws for the State because he favored and helped
them ; now to be afraid of him or doubt him,
would be simply base ingratitude. It is pre
sumed they will adjourn about the 10th of July,
subject to the call of the Speakers of both
Houses'. They have not much law for that, but
then, you knoir, Congress did it that's prece
dent enough. "They don't seem to think the
Treasurer wants them there, or would be likely
call them. The reference of a resolution to ad
journ to the Ways and Means Committee look
like business. We are left to infer that it is sent
there for the purpose of finding out how long
the State will be able to pay the per diem , of
members, and as a consequence, that Commit
tee can best fit the day for adjournment. Good
reference. ! , - .
The whole afternoon yesterday was spent in
discussing amendments to the bill to amend laws
governing the penitentiary. After a large
amount of talk, the bill passed into a pigeon hole;
it was lost lacked the constitutional majority !
Bully for the New Constitution. By the by, no
one will suspect there is a neat little ring form
ing for a raid on this magnifieent institution.
AVe don't want to be premature, but if time
don't develop i nice plan to put money in some
pocket?, by scientifically manipulating the pen
itentiary, your correspondent has neither eyes
no . ears'. L We shall keep you posted.
There is an effort being made to establish an
Inebriate Aytylum. This evening a meeting
will be held at the Masonic Hall to inagurate
the movement. The members of the Legisla
ture have been specially invited to be present.
Of course no reference is had to "the eternal
fitness of things." This sort of asylums are
good. They furnish a safe retreat for the poor
inebriate, where he can be aided and sustained
in his efforts to keep from the greatest curse that
now afflicts our country. The "sum of all vil
lanies" having been wiped out, how soon will
we be gratified to know that the great demon of
strong drink is tc be laid low.
The Senate bVl to aid the completion of the
Knoxville am1 Kentucky Railroad, was read
the second r esterday, in the House and re
ferred to t "i Improvements Commif-J
tee. No oi k to suspect that the $28.-
000 has anyto Qo with the action.
In moral legislation, Tennessee is a little ahead
of other States, for proof of which, see a bill
providing that insanity is sufficient cause for
divorce, and it will become a law. Look out,
girls, it is about time the Woman's Rights move
ment was commenced in Tennessee. A man
that tires of his wife, need oulv commence a
course of mental torture. That will soon in
sure a loss of reason, and presto a divorce lands
him where he can indulge his fancy. Talk of
Indiana or Chicago. They are far behind the
great Volunteer State.
A few facts shedding light on the School
Fund business, have come to our knowledge,
which we propose to ventilate in our next.
Watchfully yours, Damox.
