period commonly. known as Indian Sum
when forest trees put on their richest
splendors the leaves rustle musically in
me paths ol men, the harvest fielas which
have given up Iheir golden riches are oi-
lent, ana au nature proclaims tne, "year
growing gray." A peculiar hazincs?, thin
and filmy, pervades the air. There is a
peculiar redness of the tky, and the sun at
its going down is uncommonly "tinged
with a ruby gleam," while tho moon, both
at iti rising and going down, is touched
with the same golden fla3h.
In this country, the name ' of Indian
summer is given to the brief period, often
in the latter half of November, or warm
sunny weather, usually preceded by some
days of frosty atmosphere. The origin of
the name is a controverted question. The
first United Stales history that met our
childhood, said that the Indian?, in thei.
improvidence, were in the habit of pro
crastinating the work of gathering their
scanty food for winter till the cold snapo
early November brought them to their
thoughts, and that in the warm weeks suc
ceeding, they did thfcir hunting and gath
eringj and hence, "Indian Summer." The
i New England tradition is, that the lndi
ans believed this season to he caused by
the southwest wind, which prevails at this
period, and which their good divinity.
Contentowit,- who resided in that quatte
sent them as a special blesaing. It has
been sometimes said that the term Indian
was giving to this period because, game
being plenty at the time, and the hazy con
dition of the atmosphere favoring their
near approach to animals unsuspected,
made it a special Indian hunting season;
and it "ib believed that all who have had
experience among the Northern Indians
concur in the general correctness of these
statements. They do hut little hunting
till September and October-; and when
November comes they gather up their corn,
rice, and meat, and start on their winter
hunt into tho forfsts. Ak these Indians

to their hunting grounds, and they will
say, "When the Great Spirit sends us our
fall cummer," which they universally be
lieve sent after the cold fall rains for ihcir
Indian summer is observed in nearly all
the countries of Europe and Asia, as well
as of Americj, and known variously as
"St. Martin's summer," "the latter sum

"summer close," and nnder name.? all sig
nificant of tho nature of the season, and
differing only by reason of the diverse
idioms of the various languages in which
the same idea is expressed. We will re
mark, however, that the season not only
rnrlpfl in different countries, but in this
countrv is much more marked inland than
on the seacoast.
Tho emoky appearance of the atmos
phere is attributed by some to a fub
vapoious condition of tbe lower stratum of
the air which is alleged to exist at this
period, while others controvert the fact of
the moist state of the air, as well as the in
ference deduced, and refer the haziness to

especially where forests abound. " It is
attiirmed lhat the rednesi of the iky once
so marked in the New England summer

ceased to extensively pievail, in support of
Tim llpeil increase of temperature du
ring Indian summer is also denied, and
the meteorological observations are pro
duced to show lhat the temperature of No
vember is actually lower than lhat of Oc
tober. On the theory, however, that the
Indian snmmer is warmer than the weeks
that usher it in, the hypothesis of released
heat in the Artie region is used to form a
very interesting, if not entirely aatufactory
expUuation in Ihis coneclion.
There is a continuous tide oi heated air
arizing from the torrid zone, and flowing
North and South. Durinc the Beason of
congelation in the Arctic zone there ia like-
wise a tide of heated air tiding from the North
Polar Sea, and flawing towards the torrid
zone. These two currents meeiauoui mm

from vanom places; that he, with con
sent and knowledge of the other candi

causes showing illegality in the election
are also set out in the bill. That by reason
of these frauds the government of the
p',tv lias nasscd into the hands of persons
whoare ineligible and who are exceedingly
offensive to the whole neonle. That among
the old cit izens and business men of the
city the Alden administration with us

will bankrupt the city, ruin its credit;and
paralyze all business. That the Mayor,

contest the election, etc. The hill prays
tho defendants be removed from oihe
which they claim by virtue of said elec
ilnn That Alden b9 enioined from re
ceiving salary until the questions involved
To this bill the defendants demurred and
assigned many other catws of demurrer;
Here follows the demurrer submitted
by the defenee, and already published,
when the bill of injunction v.as argued.
It follows from this section of the Code
that this court has no jurisdiction to try
the validity of the election held for the
MayorAldermen and Common Csuncil on
ihe -23th of September. 1S6S. consequently
it is unnecessary to reconsider that part of
the bill which alleges aid charges the
election was illegally holden. It is true,
that fraud, in a legal sense, vitiates all
traasaclions into which it enters, but that
mint he innuired into in the form pre-
fented by law, by express provision of the
Btatute, this court is precluded from en
tering into the consideration oi the ques
tion. By section 16 of the act passed
18th of February, 1S5S, it is expressly pro
vided that each Board of tho City Council
shall have authority to decide ultimate! y
upon all questions relative to thequaiihca
tions, election and returns of its members.
This section of the act confers the jurisdic
tion upon the City Council, and it follows
therefore that this court cannot enquire
into the legality of the election, and upon
that branch of the bill the demurrer mut
bs allowed. By section 14 of the act passed
ISth of February. 1S3S, the Mayor shall bi
elected by the qualified voters of said city,
and shall hold his oiiiee lor one year ar.u
until his successor shall have been elected
ami qualified, -and no person nhall be
flexible to the office of Mayor who is not a
citizen of the State of lenne3ace, and who
has not baen a citizen of the city of Nash
ville immediately preceding his election,
and iu possession of a freehold estate in
said city of at least the value of $500,
though he at any lime aiter nis election re
main bevond the limits or cease to he such
freeholder, he shall thereby yacitc
his said office. Section 13 of said act
nrovides that no person shall be eligible to
either the office of Alderman or Council-
men unless he be a citizsn of Nashville, a
ooiia fide citizen of the city and a free
holder in the ward in which he is elected.
Any Alderman or member of the council
after the election, removing from or ceas
ing to possess a freehold estate in his ward
hall thereby vacate his office. It is in-
tsisted for the defedants thee provisions of
the act of ISth of l-ebruary, lisjb, are re
pealed bv the provisions of the sixth sec
tion of the act passed March 23, 1800.
That was au act to amend section 337 of the
Code, giving the right to elect two Justices
of the Peace for each ward.
Section 3 of taid act provides that terri
tory adioir.inc the city of Nashville may
be added thereto and included in tbe cor
porate limits thereof, providing tor laying
it off upon petition of the citizens and
submitting it to the Mayor and Aldermen
and Council, and if they consent and a
majority of the citizens, men it snail ne
come a part of the city of (Nashville to
test thi- an election is to be held.
Section 5 of said act provides that at
tbe next annual election Tor Mayor, Alder
men and Council, the voteri who aro in
firnr (!f aaid election of said officers fur
ihn term of two years, shall put the term
of office for two "years on that ticket, and if
a majority of all the vote polled snail nc
iu favor ol the election m sat'i oiucer ior
n tfrm of two years, then and thereafter
i he charter of the city of Nashville
shall lie bo amended, and said
election ehall he held accordingly, and
iherenfier the nullification of Mayor, Al-
temirn. and Common Council shall bo
citizenship and rcidenro in the city of
Nashville Ijr to whoti years, next pr.--cedin"
tlie eltction. and no others. Upoi;
an examination of this Act, it is trident
the Legislature did not design or intend to
rene.al the law rcnniring a trochoid inter
est in the Mayor and Aldermen, unless
the provision of the Act was accepted, ex
tending the time of holding office to two
years. If so, why uo tne woru3 men anu
ilierenfter. evidently intending, upon that
adoption and amendment of the charier
bhould depend upon ihe extending of the
term for which they should hold office for
two vear-. lhat not having been
adopted the Act is net in force, con-
nrnnentlv it is requieilo under the
nrovisions of lha law the Mayor shouh
own a real c-ta!e of the value of SoOO, an
the Aldermen and Connrilmen should also
own real estate. The bill alleges they do
not own the real i state required hy law
io of them are also alleged to own
Hiuull purchase, transferred on the day a
the election. The demurrer filed admit.
ihe .allegations of the bill, consequently 1
must consider the facts presented under the
provisions of the law referred to. liioy
are not entitled to hold the oliice and must

whom it is alled-el are pleased of

the law, and as to them the demurrer will

four Aldermen stated in the bill, .and. the
Common Councilmen not bavins Teal es

The St. L mis Democrat of Tuesday saya :
Tlic Bpicul dispatches in tbe Democrat
yesterday gave the only information we re-c-ived
as to the sinking of the steamer
Helena, in the Mis.-ouri, below Siour City.
It is probable, we should think, that no
difficulty could attend the raising of the
boat, as it is likely she is not in deep
water. She was loaded with government
freight, ard was bound to Fort Randall.
It i.s sicgular that the two boats sent from
here for the same destination, by the same
owner, should both ink. The other was
he Lilly. The Helena was an excellent
teamer, and, it is presumed, well insured.

in the new enterprise, pledtins ourselves that
in every particular our paper will compare fa
vorably with the beat in the entire country ; and
in saying this, we only repeat the expressions of
