the attention of the members of the pro

The meeting for the 8th inst. is called to
consider an important subject no less a
one than ways and means, and it is desired
that a full attendance should be present.
The matter is in the hands of a competent
committee, which will doubtless report
some just and efficient mode of collection.
About ten o'clock yesterday morning, a
little negro boy entered tho store of Rcssn

just as he was about to make bl3 exit frem

but did not succeed in capturing him.
Cap!. D. V. Glassie had stolen from him
Tuesday night, a set of buggy harness

probably capture the thief to-day.

Going to the X.tiraltc Asylum.
On Saturday next the members of tbe
Legislature will in a body visit the Ten
nesseo Asylum for tbe Insane. The officers
of tho Nashville and Chattanooga railroad
have kindly offered a special train for the
use of the members on this occasion, which
offer has been accepted. We note with
pleasure this contemplated visit of the
Legislature to the Asylum. It is one fit
and proper to be made. The public insti
tutions conducted and controlled under lbo
auspices of the State, and especially the
Asvlums for the Blind, and the Deaf and
Dumb, deserve and should receive the
earnest and careful consideration of those
empowered to control and regulate their
management and also invested with
the power, to legislate for their -increased
usefulness and benefit to the afflicted.
In order to legislate intelligently upon
matters connected with these institutions,
it is highly ntccsjary tbat the members of
the General Assembly should familiarize
themselves, by actual observation when
possible, with their nature, wants and ca
pacities. Learning thus what is needed,
they will have light to. guide them in
whatever legislative action may be neces
sary in counectlon with these institutions
of the Slate. It is in this view of the sub
ject tbat we hope the proposed visit of tbe
Legislature will be pleaiant to themselves
and profitable to tbe public interests.
Dr Hunting at Galveston.
The numerous friends of Rev. Dr. Bunt
ing, late the beloved pastor of the First
Presbyterian Church In this city, will be
gratified, with us, lo.hear of his safe arri
val at Galveston with his family, on tho
25 ih ult. In a highly appreciated note to
a friend in this city dated Nov. 28, after
stating that he had a pleasant trip, and
found Galveston a thriving city, with an
increasing population of 28,000, he says :
"My Church here extends me a. hearty
greeting, and a cordial welcome comes
from many unexpected sources. I was at
once brought before tbe Church ; for, on
tbe evening of our arrival a wedding took
place in the Church which I witnessed, an
old ministerial brother being brought
d iwn from Homton because of the uncer
tainty of my getting here on tbat day.
(You know a wedding must go on if every
thing else should Bton.) Then at night
there was regular prayer-meeting, and on
the next day I was expected to preach the
Thanksgiving Be'rmon, and ton the Sabbath
I am looked for two sermons. . But I came
here to work, and only pray the Lord to
give me grace and strength to do it. Our
little boys are getting over their. colds, and
we are pleasantly located."
We congratulate our friend upon the
blessings of Heaven upon him, and the
people with whom "he is now asso
ciated, in having a shepherd whom they
can rely upon, and who is worthy of their
highest confidence and warmest affection.

of Ni aville was a branch of tbe State gov
ernment, and her officers nolthe agento of a
Drivate corporation, but officsra of a btate,
In referring to tbe purchase of the Park,
he said there was no implied power, but
i were expressly authorized by an act of the
Legislature. He insisted that tbe corporation-had
not been made a party tothe
suiti because the-bill charges individuals,
and only refers incidentally to the Mayor
and Aldermen .and Common Councilmen.
THatif'usn'sry could he established there
was no one to receive it, unless the relators
claim it by right of discovery. He took
tbe ground that the Mayor and City Coun
cil were not trustees of tho citizens, and
thought the request for the appointment of
a Receiver was without a parallel.
After Mr. Otis had concluded, the Court
took a recess until 2 o'clock. Upon the
opening of the Court in the afternoon,
Judge Jo. C. Guild, for the com
plainants, commenced his argument. He
said that the checks that had been issued
are floating over tbe city at a discount of
60 to 65 cents. Beside the great burden
resting upon tbe people, tbe corporation
goes down here and buys that great bull
1 frog pond, and issues the bands of this
! conoration to the amount of 546,600 ; and
tbe party making (he purchase, for fear of
this tbing'.being ventilated, puts tneso
bonds on tbe market and disposes of them.
' The answer to the bill says lhat "you are
' up to this data issuiog checks for sale. We
' charge that you have inducted yourselves
into office by fraud. You are not
qualified. You do not hold real
' estate. If yon own real estate, why don't
each man of you come along and present
your deed, when you purchased it and on
. what paee of the book it is registered.
Each charge in our bill is more or less in
vaded bv the defendant, when forty tnoc
sand people who ar-J thus oppressed
have no voice in the levying of these taxes.
Judge Shakleford asked the speaker the
following Question: "Woule the court
have tbe power to prevent thm from col
leciing the taxe? if so, what would become
of the city government?'
, Judce Guild : We want you to appoin
a Receiver to make these collections, with
fnll power to pay all debts and to take
possession of tbe Fire Department, which
is now costing the city $60,000, when it
can be run fora,WU.
The speaker then read several extracU
of the Code in relation to the question un
iter fliqlMleaiOn. What authority have
they to assume the power of issuing $300,-
000 in checks, not to pay the debt, but to
breed upon the market, giving their favor
ites opportunity to make something when
ever they rise They are also issuing their
bill's of Credit when if it was a State, tho
constitution says that you shall not issue
your bills of.credit. A Receiver should be
tprt to nrevent this trreat injury to
the people. Mr. Otis says that our bill
has not been endorsed by the Attorney
General. We did not think of submitting
ths subject to the Attorney General. We
are the citizens, the tax-payers. We have
Wn mrf to draw tbe water, to hew the
timber, and we have the right to appeal to
the law. We being relators, the private cit
izens, the tax-payers, we stand upon as firm
a eround as if the Attorney had endorsed
our bill. We want an injunction upon these
gentlemen to cease them from further op
erations. They have shown Dy tne
swerthat they are abusing tbe exercise ol
this relation. Take the bill and answer
together and tbe Honorable Court must see
that utter ruin starts this people in the
face. Justice demands that a Receiver
should be appointed, and we have evidence
that your Honor will select a business
man and a responsible man who will take
nnon hhnself the duties of an honest r.nd
faithful discharge of his high trust until
this case can be finally settled.
Ti nnlv remains lor your Honor to
say whether such a case has been madi
We think we have made tbe case out and
that we are entitled to-the protection of the
law. There are many questions involved
in that bill, some may be remote and some
may be more direct. A majority of tbe
Board of Aldermen are itinerants, have no
particular homes, and aro not property-
holders in Ibis State. How do tliey an
swer that charge? Just in one line, and
that is "We are free-holders." They
should show how they are freeholders
We charge in the bill that they have a
fire department that is wholly unsufficient
and tbat they are paying out to their
favorites 560,000, twice a3 much as was
ever paid by any city government in the
oity of Nashville, and that another efficient
department can be obtained for $25,000 or
$30,000. In consequence of the insuf
ficiency of the fire department several
large buildings have burned down. What
has been yodr expense How have you
managed your affairs? How do they an

and did not owe a dollar, where would tne
