Sometime since Dr. Lindslcy, Ihe Chan
cellor of TJashvilfc University, submitted
to the Trustees tho following suggestions
looking to a re-organiz.ition of this institu
tion. Starting upon the Montgomery Bell
endowment, which Is now in active opera
tion, with six Instructors and one hundred
and fifty pupils ; and taking also the city

On leaving the City High School
or the Montgomery Bell Academy the
pupil enters the University, wuere ne is
governed as a young man, free to select
his course of study, and is taught by a
corps of professors, each devoted to a
iccial branch of science.
The University shall embrace substan
tially the following departments, or schools:
A The School OI Jjeuers ami ruutrao-
oJ-rineuool ol science.

great, essential and leading branches of the

The special schools may be tuns ar
C The Medical School.
D The Law School.
E The Normal School.
F The Polytechnic School; (mechan
ics and art.)
G The School ot Agriculture.
Of these various special departments,
the medical is already provided. The
agricultural and polytechnic should be
secured bv the Leeie lalure ot the btate con
necting Ihe government land grant and ttie
Hermitage farm with the University.
The-iNormat Kcliool is greatly needed oy
the city and State, and is also directly
within the sqope of the plan adopted by
ihe Trustees" of the Peabody fund. By
proper effort in these various directions a
first class Normal School in connection
with the University may be secured, which
would co inestimable service in the work
of popular education throughout Tennes
see and the stales aujoining.
The other special departments may be
organized by individual enterprise and
The great, essential and universally
needed departments of letters and philoso-
pliy, and ot science should be endowed by
the city of Nashville as completing its pub
lic school system. These two departments
could be respectably organized with ten
professors, each of whom should receive
tuieen hundren dollars per annum irom
the Board of Education, and such fees
from students outside the city limits as the
university maj I'iceuiiur.
Properly to elaborate the above outline
would require a long report. The above
hints will make the whole scheme apparent
to llioee familiar with educational topics.
The essential features of the plan are the
establishment of a great Municipal Uni
versity, upon the German or Continental
system, rather than of a college upon the
English model ; and the utilizing the very
valuable and extensive buildings and
grounds, belonging to the University, as
welf as the favorable location and reputa
tion of Naahville, by securing funds, equiva
lent to endowment, from every possible
Much or little of this plan may be ac
complished, as the University may have
much or little co-operation from city, or
Slate or private liberality.
If for years the Hoard ot Trustees have
only the Medical Department and the
Montgomery Bell Academy in operation
great good will be accomplished. The foun
dations will continue to grow, and ulti
mately the entire plan will be carried out
by the increased wealth and liberality of
the cominuni'y. For very many yeara the
University of Pennsylvania was known
only by its medical, and'Columbia College
only by its collegiate department. To-day
these are the leading institutions of learn
ing in the two great States of New York
The entire, splendid University, now
ever, could be speedily organized, and the
wealth and fame of Nashville greatly en
hanced if thema) of people were fully
nroiueil lo a stiw of thu Importance of the
subject, by those who ought to lead them
iu hucli matters. The great University of
the Soulbnoit is a prize easily within reach
ofourcily. If we lose this nobte prize by
laggard indihvrence now, vain wilt be our
In the above scheme it will be seen that
a department easei.tiat to the completeness
of a University in more respects than one,
viz : that of Theology, has not been men
tioned. This is became of he eutirely
secular or non-denomiuational character of
the University of Nashville. Every in
ducement however should be held out to
Churches and Christian men to endow
faculties or professorships of Theology,
managed and controlled entirely as their
founders may direct.
Diversity of study, freedom of iuqnry,
are the elements in a true university.
Theje should be the distinguishing features
in the Univerfity of Nashville resulting
alike from its origin and its situation.

Onr enterprising citizens, Rich & Krieg,
have largely increased their facilities for
manufjcturiug,aiid have recently introduced
into their establishment a large amount of
the most improved machinery. Upon the
ruins of the old establishment, which
some time ago, it will be remembered, was
destroyed by fire, tht-y have erected exten
sive buildings, and are now engaged in
turning out a large amount of woik. Their
premises include about an acie of ground
on Summer, Madison aud Cherry street?.
The principal factory is two stories in
height, with a fine boiler room, and a
twenty horse-jiower engine, which is capa
hleof running all the machinery employed.
Amongst the large lot of new machinery
lately introduced, we notice what is called
the endless saw, the only one in use in this
State, and an aititfe which it seems to us
to he indir-penshhlj; in the manufacture of
chairs. While thiy make the manufacture
of cliMis a l-ptclity, they are also turn

abundance, and before tbeclo?e of the year

kinds of furniture. We notice under way

the library loom of the State Capitol. This

about twenty more. All ihe timber they

Didu't Hold Their FcaSc. " j
Three marriages of colored lovers were
lo have taken place at a negro church la
this settlement a few nights b'iocj, but
owing to circumstances over which the
officiating clergyman had no control, only
one wedding really accurred. The first
pair who presented themselves at the altar
got along quite smoothly through the
solemn ceremony, and were finally pro
nounced husband and wife. The next couple
who presetiled themselves were notdestined
to get quite so serenely through the rite
matnmonial, for when the preacher got to
that part of the service addressed to those
present who flossibly might have objec
tions lo the completion of the ceremony, a
staid and settled looking old black man
rose deliberately from his seat, and in a
tone of voice a good deal above a whisper
said, "Mr. Preacher, don't yon finish that
piece of bnsine-a, for that woman is my
wife, and I ain't going lo hold my peace
while she marries another nigger." This
was a settler.' The preacher closed his
book, and the disappointed couple retired
from the altar, the half-made bridegroom
saying It was a mistake on his part,
and that he wouldn't for all Nash
ville marry another mau's wife. The
disappointed woman did not take the
discomfiture quite so calmly. She haughtily
left the church, swearing she would marry
who she pleased, uo matter what that old
fool said about getting a license from Mr.
Nichol'ti office. When Ihe confusion pro
duced by this little episode had someffhat
subsided, two more candidates foi the ma
trimonial yoke roae from their plsca and
advanced to the altar. Again ihe preacher
opened his book and once more read over
the marriage service. And then again he
said if anybody here knows any teison
why this man and woman shonld not he
made husband and wife, speak now or for
ever hereafter hold your peace. For the
moment nobody present seemed lo object
to the bans, and the finishing touch was
about to be given the impressive ceremony
when the church door was thrown cpen
with a bang, and in rnsheel a woman,
whose appearance denoted business. Fran
tically dashing ber bonnet aside, she
swiftly made her way into the group around
the minister, and imperativelyjcalled upon
that individual to "hold on." The preacher
"held on" lo hear what the intruder had
to say, and was plainly forbidden to go
any further with the business. Asking
why, the newcomer replied, "because that
man is my husband, and ain't got no Court
house papers to marry anybody else." Here
was another settler. The preacher closed
his book in despair and said they must
settle the matter, between them. The two
women looked vengence at each other, and
the principal cause of the trouble looked
around for his hat. Kindly disposed
members of the church wanted to pour oil
ou the troubled waters but didn't have
any. When silence again ruled the hour
the preacher said -that, owing lo its late-
neuand other circumstances not necessary
to mention, there would be no more mar
riages for the future at present, and he
would therefore proceed to say the bene
diction, because lie had nothing else just
then to say. The meeting iherelore aet

"Gold haa been heavily dealt iu during

of the Gold Room sales were made at 136

nessed the first trial of the new method of
eelling government gold, and the result can
but be regarded Batiafaclory. The
amount advertised for sale was J300.000,
and bids were filed for $3,300,000; these
ranged from 13GZ to 13CJ, at which latter

government sale the price was advanced in

"Money ia in good demand at the banks
at seven per cent.; government dealers,
however, continue to be supplied at six
per cent, which is also the rate obtained on
unemployed balances among elock brokers.
The banks generally have little money to

The New York Shipping and QimmereM
List of the l lth inat. tays:
"The continued decline iu gold has a
disturbing eflict on commercial value?, and
consequently obrdruci"! the eMiiree of gen
eral lraile. Buyers nml sellers of mer
chandise and prexluce are largely at vari
ance, the laiter regarding the preient
causes of depression as but lempornry, and
are therefore dbposed to await a reaction,
while the former believe that on sound
commercial principles, there is warrant for
a lower premium, and hence they are in
clined to pau.-C to tee about where it is
likely to t-ettle. In connection with the
inexplicable fluctnatioiiff' of gold, the po
litical excitement, which is running high,
without doubt, has a restraining influence.
The light volume of trade indicates
that the immediate wauU of con
Btimptiou constitute the limits of
busiuesr, and the ewtupelling power wliich
hriugs buyers into market. But this is
simply one of Ihcse periodical pauses inci
dent to our political y4tem, and which wjll
soon be succeeded ly lenewed activity.
The gre.it agricultural Mtaples of the coun
try are moving towards the seaboard in full
force, but they do not enter freely into the
export channels as a bais of exchange,
Ihe rates for which, with free imports of
foreign good?, are again higher. Prices of
grain at Liverpool are believed to be ex-eej-titnially
low, but when the looked for
reaction comw, and the cotton trade fairly
comroenetK, we may expect a material in
crease in ihe export, trade. The money
market is working a little closer, as may
be inferred from the decrease in the -line of
our local bank deposits. The rate for call
