Yesterday morning, at about half past nine
clock, our community was thrown into i stato
of great excitement by an attempt on the part of
Gen. Joseph A. Mabry to take tho llfo of Col.
John Baxter. Tho difficulty grow out of publi
cations and matters well known in this commu-
ity, and to which wo need not now refer.
Col. Baxter had expected to go to Maryvillo
n tho morning, to attend Chancery Court, but
owing to the non-arrival of Chancellor Smith,
who was expected to hold court, did not leave at
tho time ho intended to go, and had gone to his
office at tho Exchango and Deposit Hank, on
msincss. A few minutes before the difficulty
took plucc, he left tho bank, and proceeded
down Gay street, on his way o his residence.
Just opposite tho wholosalo establishment of
Cowan, McClung & Co., nftor having been first
detained sonio moments at the Lamar House, ho
was accosted by Mr. Klcliards, who presented a
paper, asking him to subscribe something to aid
in purchasing a set of instruments fortho "Welsh
brass band. Col. llaxtor was proceeding to do
so, when Gen. Mabry approached from behind
dm, from tho direction of , tho Luinar House,
laving, in the meantime, as wo aro informed,
cocked ana drawn a derringer pistol, no went
up unnoticed by Baxter, and when very near
him he called Baxter's name. Baxter immedi
ately looked around to seo who it was, at tho
tamo timo drawing down his cane, which had
been thrown on his shoulder, when Gen. Mabry
fired, the shot taking cll'ect in Colonel Bxter's
right arm, just above tho wrist, passing entirely
through tho lleshy part, nnd grazing tho bone.
This so paralyzed Baxter's arm that he was un
able to ue his pistol, which ho made sovcral
attempts to do, and not wishing to stand up as a
target, retreated across tho street, with his faco
oward his assailant. "When about half way
across tho street ho niado another attempt to
use his pitol, but being unable to do so, con
tinned to, retreat until he got into tho store of
Cowan, McClung & Co. After firing the first
shot, Mabry throw his pistol nt Baxter, and then
following him up, took dclibcrato aim, firing u
second time without effect, tho ball penetrating
a window in the Palmer building.
Mabry was so near Baxter when the first shot
was fired, that tho powder burned his face; tho
second was fired a distance of some ten or fif
teen feet, .and missed Baxter entirely.
As might ho expected, bystanders wero
thrown into consternation and sought refugo
behind whatever Jobjoct presented itself. A
largo number of persons were on the street at
tho timo in that immediate locality, a number
ot tnem ladies, ami it is very lortunato that no
lives were lost. Sheriff Gossctt was present, dis
playing a commondable zeal in quelling the
difficulty. He immediately arrested Mabry
and took him before Justico Jourolmon, whero
ho waived an examination and gavo bond in the
sum of one thousand dollars for hi appearance
beforo tho Circuit Court now in se?.-ion, with
G. M. Branner, Thns. O'Connor and "W. T
Osborn ns his socurity.
Col. Baxter went to his reu'dence, where his
wound was examined by Dr. Boyd and others.
and found to be slight, a flesh wound, no bone
being injured.
As Gen. Mabry came down tho street a mini
ber of persons wero attracted to tho spot, seem
ing to expect something would lrnppcn, cither
from what they hnd hoard,or tho known hostili
ties of the'partics toward each other.
Mr Charlton, tho editor of the II Ing, was
standing near the place whero tho difficulty
took place, whero ho was seen before Mr. Mabry
niado the attack. Ho had in his hand, as wo aro
informed, a drawn pistol, but so far as wo know
mado no attonipt to participate. As to his ob
jeet or intentions wo of course havenothin
to
say. AVo simply state facts and leave persons
to draw their own inferences.
In chargin tho Grand Jury, Judge llallnlluded
especially to this case, urging them to do the!
duty, in taking prompt action to prevent the
recurrence of similar violations of hiw. and for
punishing those who would endanger the lives
of men and women by shooting upon the public
thoroughfares of tho city, with a soeinmgly
reckless disregard for public bafety.
The excitement produced by this affair con,
tinued throughout tho day. Knots of gentlemen
upon the street corners and in places of busi
u ess wero discussing thu matter, each giving his
view, and each having some peculiar version o:
tho occurrence. "Wc havo boon careful to gathc
tho facts as they exist, without doing injustico
to any one, or keeping back anything thtt would
unnecessarily prejudico tle case of either of tho
distinguished gentlemen engaged. "We regret
tho occurrence exceedingly, but us public jour
nalists, we aro bound to give the facts as wo un
derstand them to exist.

From our Special Correspondent.
Aoiivn.Lf:, Tjcnn., Junu 10, 1870.
Some people have a peculiar liking for throw
tig dirt. T hey tako to it as naturally nnd
easy
as n duck to wntnr. "Why a great political party
should dovoto all their energies for years to this
questionable sort of amusement, has puzzled
many in this State, and not n few outsido of this
dominion. AVo refer to' tho persistent attack
made by tho Democrats of Tenncssco upon what
iiiey uru pieasca to styio scnooi iunu thieves,
"robbers,'"'plundcrers,"and sundry other pleas
ant epithets that havo been, from timo to time,
applied to some men in thoStato who have had a
hand in legislation,
xivi eoniciu wun waging a wuroi demolition
gainst these men. nolitlcally. until thev havo
gone out of public life, and subsided into that
quiet condition that forbids hope of futuro polit
ical preferment, they follow them un with so
much pcrsi-teney that decent thinkine men out
f politics becin to insitcet' thcro is some irood
reason for this constant, unrelenting cry of "stop
thief,'1 or "school fund stealer." Tlio Demo
crats have overdone the thing; they have sung
the charges so often that 'the public nro begin
ning to take some interest in this heretofore mys
terious charge. No reasonable or bravo man
would wont to kick a vanquished foe. But not
so with modern Tennessee Democracy: they
are determined to keep it before the people that
certain men who once figured us Republicans,
stole the school fund of this State, and "robbed
the dear children of their right to an education."
Such is their statement.
xow. let us look at tho facts, and uosslhlv thn
readers of tho Chkoxiclk may be ablo to com
prehend uie true state ot tins great huo nnd err.
Experienced police detectives tell us that, In
their business, they mako it a rulo to suspect
tho man who shouts "stop thief" tho loudest, or
who exhibits unusual officiousness. "Won't this
rule nnnly here? o think it will, and it is
possible a reason may be found for all this lein
pest over a few thousand dollars.
"When tho urescnt body of lawmakers came
to their seats, ono of their first acts was to organ
ise un uiTcsiiEuiiiig coiniiiiucc in snow uji, ruin,
dsstroy, eradicate and wine out tho school flind
ers, as they termed them. This committee was
vested with full powers, and the public, after
reauuig lac nci creatine u, waucii patiently ior
truth and light on a subject that had oxeltod so
much attention.
At the commencement ol the war. tho Stato

This wat carried oil' with the Bank of Tonnos'
soo in 18C'i General Upton captured from tho
rebels, in 1805, what was left of thee assets, and
returned it to tuivornor iJrownlow. J ho legis
lature then in session, ordered the gold so
turned over to the State to be sold in Now
ork and invested in United States bonds
This was done, mid the State came iu noi
FCS'iou of somcthins: over S700.CKXI worth o
7-80 bonds. These were in the snfes of tin- of.
ficials at the Canitol. when ono Butter. riresidAit
of a bank nt Memphis, conceived the idea of
Kcttine nosse-Mon "1 them to incroa-e his opera
tions. He came to Nuihville. and. after iimcl
maneuvering, got an amendment into a long
bill ior winding up tlio liaiiK ol l enncssee
which directed the Treasurer of the St itc to do
nosit tho funds of the State in some bank
Without con-ultlni; either the Governor or other
State officials, the Treasurer handed tho 7-0
bonds over to Butter. As soon as tho Governor
learned ;what had been done, a proclamation
will iSMieu. xiiu j.rKisiluuru .ipMuu',i u uwm-
mittce. who proceeded at once to Memphis, and
secured enough to save the whole amount for
the State, except some. $;I5,000 that Butter had
put beyond their reach.
The public saw this committee appointed,
and they naturally expected some light on the
subject of the 700,1X10. The' Uth and 15th
sections of the act creating tlio Committee ex
pressly directs that.they should inquire and re
port what had ccome of tho only school fund
the Slate ever had, nnd whether tlio bank is sol
vent or not, who aro responsible for its insol
vency, and how much of the ns-ets. of the bank
was returned, in 18fi!, and what part in Confed
erate notes and bonds. They wero also directed
to report why tho $12,700,000 cannot bu recover
ed. They were ordered to report tho names of
all persons concerned iu taking oft or stealing
the assets of the bank in February, 18C2: what
amount they took, nnd what amount of solvent
or nvailablo assets wero returned to Tennessee.
Now, what did this powerful Coinniittco do?
Did they obey any of tho injiictloiis of the, As
sembly'? "We answer, no. Instead of obeying
tho act or performing tho plain duties they wore
sworn to do, they ignored thu main questions,
and confined themselves to an expose of a few
of the Bcpublican party, and took for their
model and principal witness that cool, sublime
specimen of sclt-convicted rascality, Butter.
They devoted much of their valuable time to
ventilating the testimony of this switf witness
who labors assiduously to implicate McUlwco
and others; but the testimony of McKlwce,
which relieves him of any complicity to fraud,
thev studiously leave out of their renort. Not
one word about the $'.2,700,000, stolen or carried off
by nrst-elass Democrats; not one word about tne
a-set.s of the bank: not ono word as to tho char
acter of these assets; not one namo given of
parties coneorncd in stealing ,VJ,7OO.O0O ; but tho
whole report is devoted to u studied, labored
oll'ort to ruin, politically and socially, a few
members of the Bepiiblicau party. The report
loads the archives of the Stato with the testimo
ny of Butter Butter, the immaculate Butter,
tho innocent Butter, the meek, lowly, honest,
zealous bank president, who is held up lor cre
dence, who swears that he N thu chief of school
funds, and then full of penitence (in a horn)
deliberately proceeds to swear away thu char
actor? of men who-e only crime was being
oncoseen in his company. How well this Dem
ocratic tool verifies the truth that, ""Who touch
es pitch," &c.
Every few days some indignant, virtuous
member present n bill, instructing tho Attorney
General to go for Arnell, McElwce, Mullins is
Co. That's right, gentlemen; go for 'em; but,t
nt tho same time, don't forget to go for some of
yopr own party who-e wholesale stealing has
never been equaled, Perhaps you havo respect
for the stupendous ra-eal who steals millions,
and call that sort of work talent ; while only thu
small rogue is pniilshed in yoqr Code. Consist
ency is a good thing, but the man who looks for
that commodity in the ranks of rebel-democracy
might ns well look for teeth in a hen.
nProsecule Arnell for what' Let us rehearse
the facts of his so-called connection with the
school fund swindle: "When Butter came to
Nashville to get hi plan through that would
make his bunk the depository of State funds, ho
approached Mr. Arnell wiih friendly oilers, and.
not daring to oiler him a bribe, he advertised
his bank in thatjgentleniun's hearing, spoke of
its facilities for doing good paper at low rates
and, finally, Mr. A., needing money, mado
note with" good sureties, which anj bank in
Nnshvillo would have taken, and obtained from
Butter's bank $5,500. When the note matured,
it was paid, and when tho bill for winding up
tho Bank of Tenne-see, with Butter' littlo
nmendmeut, which put tho Stato money in his
bank, was on its passage, Mr. Arnell voted
against tho bill, and the vofo is so recorded
on the journals. These are facts, and thosn
who don't believo can be 'shown tho can
celled note, with tho bank stamp, showing that
it was paiil at maturity, as will the sureties ; and.
tho House journal will show tho vote. '.
Benders can perhaps by this time begin to seo
tho "nigger in tho wood pilot" they can per
haps begin to understand why so much has been
vuid about Arnell's Simplicity iu a fraud that
caused the ritato to lose alioiu .;n,i, and no-
thliur is said about tho

and if thev aro worth tho troubto. thev will in

This is no Badical talk, but ono can hear it
everywhere, among Conservatives as well as
Bepublicans. Tho thing has been overdone.

Sullivan County.
Bt.oirxrviLLK, T:xx., May 10th, 1870.
Editors Chronicle : few days ago Capt.
Easle, Into Sheriff of this county, was arrested
at Bristol on charge of willful murder, tho
charge originating iu his aiding in suppressing
tho demonstrations of lawless men, at Bristol
several months ago, and whilo ho was Sheritfof
tho county, at which timo ono man was, in tho
confusion of a somewhat general light, killed.
Tho point to which I wish to call particulan
attention, is that tho citizens of Bristol came to
tho riscuo of Capt. Easloy, signing a bond that
he would bo forthcoming whon called for. Tho
better class of citizens signed tho bond as long
in there was paper to sign upon. This seems to
indicate a better spirit than we seo exhibited in
other portions of the State. When a Bopubli
can ex -oilicer is sustained for having dono his
duty, by a sot of men composed of thu opposit
party, wo may indulge the hope that tho mil
lennium draws pear. Tho men who eomposu
the opposition to the Bepublican party in Sul
livan, are not of tlio murdering, midnight assas
sinating class, of which Domocracy is composed
in other places. Sinco tho war thoy havo acted
generously, in tho main, towards Bepublicans.
There arc a few isolated individuals who, wo
doubt not, would bo pleased to cut tho throats
of tho Bepublicans in tho county, but very for
tunately for us, cruelty is nlways coupled with
cowardice. Wo think tho people of Bristol
should bo met on tho half-way ground in any
advances toward reconciliation and friendship,

In Congress, tho llouso Funding bill, which
has attracted so much of tho attention of tho
country for the last fow weeks, has come out in
an entiroly now ftjiapo. It differs totally from
tho Senato bill, and provides for a long four per
cent, bond exempt from all taxation. The com
pulsory clauso requiring the national banks to
tnko tho now bonds has boon stricken out. Tho
clnuse allowing tho bonds to bo negotiated
abroad is also strickon out. Its provisions con
cerning national banks is in direct antagonism
with tho ninety-tour million national bank bills
which has been agreed upon by tho Banking and
Currency Committee. It is evident thcro will bo
a sovero struggle between these two committees
in regard to the national bank features in tho
two bills. Secretary HoutwoU is strongly op
posed to tho bill proposed by tho Ways nnd
Means Committee, and will uso his influenco to
defeat it.
