Handsome and Substantial Im;roTo
The new home recently built by Gales &
Pohlman on the corner of College and
Union street?, has been completed, and is
without doubt, one of the handsomest and
most substantial improvements erected
since the war, and reflects great credit
upon the enterprising spirit and good taste
displayed by tbiB worthy and reliable firm,
The building is three stories high, with an
elegant cellar, and covered with what in
known an the French roof, the Aral of the
kind ever constructed in Nashville. The
building throughout is most hubatantially
built, the design being the work of Mr.
Kiddcll, one of our lest architect. The
brick work was done by O. S. Lessenr, the
carpenters' work bv E. W. Adams, the
painting by Milton & Ruth, the plaster
ing by Mr. Tankesley, the slate and tin
work on the roof by McCInre k Buck,
and the carviDtr necessary to the inside
finish of the building by Mr. Palm, and
the general finish in each depart'
ment will sneak for itself. The building
has an open front, with magnificent glass
plate imported from France. In the centre
of the front wall in the second story is
a magnificent clock, ordered and manu
factured especially for the purpose, which
was put 'in running order last night,

cornices, and thccounter cases are as hand

We may just add in conclusion that (be
large assortment of goods, consisting of
eilver ware, watches, diamonds, jewelry,
etc., etc, corresponds with the magnificence
of the building, and the firm may feel per
fectly secure in the belief that their enter,
prise, both in the construction of a house
so acceptable to their business and the ex
tent of their stock, will not go unrewarded.
Being fully prepared lo receive their cus

animated discussion arose upon the com

new base "Rose Pearl" or collodion, set

of superiority for It. ;
At this point the regular order of busl
sess was suspended and a vote of thanks
was tendered to the Nashville Medical
Society for the courteous offer of their hall
to this society during its session ; also a
vote of thanks (o the Union and American
and Banner for courtesies extended.
The order of business was resumed until
half past one o'clock, when the Association
adjourned to meet on Lookout Mountain:
This meeting was one of great interest to
the profession in attendance, and was
largely contributed to by visiting members

terday a man named Louis Phillipe Goe
living on the Buena Vista, Pike, near the
residence of Judge Turner, fell a victim to
the mania which now prevails to an
alarming extent. From all we can learn
about the matter, it apppears that Goe and
wife did not get along well together, and
were constantly quarreling. Be that, how
ever, as it may, Goe determined to put an
end to his life, and carried out his design
'most successfully. He took his life
by shooting himself with a pistol

Coroner Norvell bearing of the death
summoned a jury and proceeded to lb
place, where an inquest was held over tli
body, the jury from the evidence in the
case, returning a verdict that he came to
his death by his own hand, and without
any cause known to them.
The deceased was a native of Switzer
land, and represented to be a fine looking
and very intelligent man. On Thursday
last he had entered into an agreement with
Gen. J. T. Dunlap to take charge of his
farm, and carry on an extensive dairy
business. The papers were already drawn
up, and were to have been signed yester
day by Mr. Goe, but he chose to forfeit the
contract by suddenly closing up his affairs
with this world.
During the merrymakings of the holi
days, we ak the friends of the Union and
American not to forget the printer. We
do not wish any cctly tokens, in the shape
of rich jewels, or an array of splendid
present. We ask the presentation of that
gem, more appreciated by the faithful jour
nalist than any other, the meed of appro
bation, accompanied by public patronage.
If each of our patrons would resolve to
add one new name to the list of our read
ers for the coming y&r, he or she would
greatly enhance our obligations, and pro
mote the dissemination of useful informa
tion, and contribute to the fund of human
happiuess, by furnishing food for the im
mortal mind. Nothing could be better or
more appropriate as a Christmas or New
Year's gift than a receipt for the Union
anI) Amkkican for 1869.
A Railroad stuavu-l'p.
On Thursday evening last, about six
o'clock, a stock train on the Louisville and
Nashville railroad, coming to this city, ran
off the track about a mile and a half east
of Edgefield Junction. Four of thecirs
were ditched, and four others thrown from
the trace, fortunately, no person con
nected with the train was injured materi
ally. Five mules were killed, and a num
ber of others more or less injured. Five
of the cars were badly damaged, and the
Ios by the accident will be considerable.
The trains due here on Thursday night
and yesterday morning were delayed, but
last evening's train arrived on time, and
the track is therefore O. K. again.

The charges made against Mr. Wm.
Baker, Engrossing Clerk of the Senate, in
the resolution offered by Mr. Rodgers a
few Oaya ago, have been investigated by
the Senate committee appointed for that
purpose, and the accused exonerated from
censure. We append the rtport of the
committee as a matter of justice to Mr.
Baker, the resolution referred to having
been published in the proceedings of the
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OK SENATE
EESOLTJTION NO. 19.
Mr. Sfxaker: The committee to whom
was referred Senate resolution no. iv,
have had the same under consideration,
and havo instructed me to report that on
the subject of Senate bill 117, therein re
ferred to, the Engrossing Clerk has round
said bill as amended, and from the exami
nation of the bill it is manifest that in tne
hurry of business the indorsement of the
last action (fliarcn m. aSB8.) ot we sen
ate was not made on said bill by the proper
lerk, which, when done, makes it the law
ot tne latia.
That part of the resolution refering to
the money obtained from tbe treasury,
grew out of a construction of the law that
he was entitled to the same as the publisher
of a newspaper, and tbe committee exon
erate said Baker from censure.

The proportion of the January gold in
lerest to go abroad is quite inconsiderable,
as compared with the late November pay
ments. The principal collections for for
eign account will be on the long 6 per
cents of 1831. There has been a gradual
increase of late in the purchases of the
5-20s of 1805 and 1807, January and July
interest for Germany, aud a fair business
for England ; but on all the prominent
English and Continental Exchanges the
main transactions continue in the May and
The New York Post of the afternoon of
the 15th inst. says:
"The money market continues easy at
seven per cent, to borrowers on call, t his
ease, however, is rather attributable to "the
limited demand from eovernment dealers
and stock brokers than to a free supply of
loanable funds, ihe shipments ot cur
rency a yet show no abatement, although
it is probable that the return tide will set
m favor of this center at no distant day,
There Is a perceptibly improved demand
lor the better grades ol commercial paper,
which are quoted as follows: sixty days.
a to S4 per rent.; three to four month, sj
to 10 iier cent. Ah before noticed, pur
chaste of paper discriminate in favor of
that which malures before Ihe April uuar-
Washington dispatches state that tbe de
cision touching the constitutionality of the
legal tender act by the Supreme Court,
will not be made for some weeks yet.
Meanwhile, as there is some apprehension
that the decision may possibly be against
the law, there is naturally a good deal of
suspense in the public mind, and especial
ly among the heavily debtorclass, as to the
issue. I ha eliect of a decision declaring
the legal tender act unconstitutional, it
would be difficult to estimate. Its ten
dency, it is believed, would be to force the
government to restore a currency equiva
lent lo coin. The greenbacks in circula
tion would be either made good for their
face in coin, or, at the worst, their value
would be expressed according to their ac-
... a . .1 l
tual price in matxet comparea wun goto, i
which, is only calling the same thing by a
different name. To the holders of these
notes, therefore, an adverse decision could
work no positive'detrlmerit, so far .as their
present or future value is concerned. The
effect on contracts and debts, however,
would be another matter. It might in
volve the necessity of the debtor class set
tling their liabilities in gold, at the will of
the creditor class. The Cincinnati Qaztlle
"The result, in case a decision by the
Supreme Court should be made adverse to
the constitutionality of the legal-tender
act, is being canvassed thoroughly ifi busi
ness circles, but the possibility of such a
decision has no practical efTec on trade as
yet. It is generally admitted, however,
that government bonds would bs favorably
affected, as the question of what kind of
currency they are payable in would be thus
settled beyond any doubt or power of id
terference by Congress."
Tbe Cincinnati Gazelle says in its market
report of the 16th :
"The market for hogs is active and firm,
and prices touched the highest point of
the season, with sales at $8 509 gross,
and $10 5011 net for medium to heavy
averages. Some packers announce their
determination to withdraw from the mar
ket, being unwilling to take the risk of
laying up meat at these high rates, but it
is difficult to lie idle white others are busy.
It is probable, however, that the commis
sion packing houses may -yet be called
upon to put up meats far droxers who may
not be able to realize as high prices as are
