The festival has now become recoguized as
a national holiday, and is generally observ

land. A long sermon has become tbe cx
ception, while the dinners have been made
more elaborate aud extensive.
Thanksgiving 's by no means a bloodless
feast. Satguinary ussociaiions cluster
around It. The country barn-yard has seen
its-ehoicest and fattest treasures welcomed
with bloody bands to Hospitable graves.
For weeks before the arrival of the fatal
day, tho wise heds among the turkeys
have sought f echided places and sequester

of cases, to escape impending doom.

AT THE MAXWELL.
According to a custom established the
first year the Maxwell House was thrown
open to tho public, thanksgiving dinners
havo been a feature at that popular estab
lishment, and if by forco of circumstances
there should be no such observance at our
Maxwell, then indeed tho day would al
most pass by unnoticed. The thanksgiv
ing dinner at the Maxwell on Thursday ,was
equal to that of forme r years, and we doubt
if any hotel In the courtry had a better re
ception for its guests. The name of Mr.
Venablo, the popular steward of the Max
well, has been handed down to posterity,
and his reputation is co-extensive with the
civilized world, while tho libarality of Mr.
Fultou, the courteous proprietor, has no
bounds when he attempts anything of the
kind. Maj. White, too, the presiding ge
nius of the dining-rcom, is fully equal to
the emergency, as the tables under his
charge bear testimony.

His Opening Address to the Coart.
Judge W. F. Coop-r, the newly appoint
ed Chancellor, occupied the bench yester
day morning, and upon opening the court
addressed tho members of tha bar in the
following aopropriate remarks:
Gentlemen of the Nasuville bah.
Permit me to begin my duties, as Chan-..aii-
tnnAarin tn vou mv acknowl-
edgement for the very flattering unanimity
with which you joined in the application for
my appointment, and the very kind manner
ln wnicn you luuiviuuiuij v.j-.v. - j
selves on the subject to me personally. The
labors and responsibilities of the judicial
office in this Stato are so heavy, and
the salary so inadequate, that tho
incumbent needs the good wishes
and friendly encouragement of the
Bar to enable him to bear the burden with
out filling by the wayside. I take tnis
earlv opportunity, whili our relations aro of
the ' pleasantest, to return thanks for the
past, and to' solicit your kindness n the
future. As soon as I bszla the active da
charge of my functions, it will become my
duty to decide every litigated case, and every
contested question presented, against one
of you. I know, from practical experience,
riifflfnlh it often is to nrevent the feel
log of disappolntmeutof the moment from
influencing our permanent judgment.
However high may bo our opinion of
the ability and integrity of a judge, It
is apt to be shaken, if, when we have
thoroughly convinced ourselves, (aa what
good advocate does not in almost every
case, even when it seemed hopeless
at first,) that law and justice are with
ns, the judge should unfortunately think
otherwise: especially if he thinks so, as he
sometimes will, very emphatically. I know
eo way to escapa entirely this trait of our
common nature, but we may sofcen its ef
fect by being forewarned. Let uo look len
iently at each other's faults by striving.when
a hitch occurs,to put ourselves in each other s
positions for the time being. Occasional col
liaions are inevitable. The lawyer, warm
from his view of the wrongs and sufierings
of his client, cannot but feel some exaspera
tion at the coolness with which the judga
listens to their deta.l, and tue pitiless impar
tiality which b is his duty to maintain.
Let us mentally promise each othnr to try
to guard ajainst any unnecessary heat. If,
occasionally, in the zsal for your clients,
you should show more ardor than discre
tion, I thull try to bear in mind that I have
hpfin alorc there mysflf, aLd have often,
no doubt, tried the temper of the incum-

Tbe surest safeguard to a good under
standing between ihe bench and bar, and
ff thoroughly appreciating each other, is
for each to strive to master the law and the
facts of the case. Most of tha differences
of opinion in this world grow Out of a mis
understanding of each other's meaning.
Tharehasbeena loose and Indefinite use of
words on a vague and general view of facts.
We do not always affix the same meaning to
the same words, and we do often use differ
ent words in tho same sense. To
bring the parties together it is
only, necessary that each should
understand the subject of dispute more
thoroughly. Forensic discussions are no
exception to the general rule. Nothing
conduces to shorten them so much as accu
rate kuowledse of the law and the facts.
All cases, even the most complicated, can
be reduced to a few points; are nearly always
thus reduced by the final decision. The
moie thorouahiy we master the case the
fewer, as a general rule, will be the contro
vertfd points. Most lawyers are, naturally
enouRb, afraid to concede anything, becmse
thev have rol sufficiently digested then-case

. . i . - rtni.AifMnn in nil ir
bearings. There are few of m so gifted as
the distinguished counsel, of whom I have
heard Judge timmons spAiK, uu ta iu
the habit of shortening tha trial and the ar
gument of causes in which he was engaged,
by saying at once, when his adversary un
dertook to prove a puicit, that he agreed the
fact was so, and when a point of law was
made in argument, that he conceded it to
be as claimed, until tha controversy was
narrowed down to the particular fact or
principle ot law upon which he intended to
rest his client's rights. Such men are ex
ceptional. But all of us nuy, by industry
and attention, emulate his example to a cer
tain extent. Le'. me earnestly urgo the
members of this Bar, and particularly its
younger members, to come to the hearing
of their Causes woll prepared. Do not trust
your client's risht3 to accident, or the judge
alone. There may be a good Bar without a
good Bench, but it is well nigh impossible to
have a good judge without tbo aid of a pood
Bar. In the multiplicity of ques tions of law
and fac t upon whieh a Chancellor is called
to act where there is a cro wded docket, it
would be impossible for him to decide them
correal? without the constant assistance of
an inteliient and industrious Bir. Let me
impress upon the younger lawyers, for the
older ones have long since found it out, that
because a man is a judge, and older than
you are, or even an abler lawer, It does not
follow that hi can know evertbing, nor
even always keen in his mind what he
does know, nor avoid occasiooly commit
ting errors, and sometimes error that a law
student of six months standing ought not
to commit. It is your duty to kuow the
facts and tho law of your case better than
he can possibly do. His morit consists in
fully appreciating your exposition of your
case. If ho does this, and you are
rifht. vou win Your case. If he
does thi?, and you are wrong, ho
is able to sa'isfy you, prhap3, and, at any
on. Ana mis aoes nui ucti;csHai a 'c"suj
argument. It requires only abriet iu the
proper sense of the teim. And, let me add,
the better you understand your case, the
shorter will be your brief.
The most cheering thought to me in the
task which lies before me, is the hope
that I may be tb'e, by j idicious conduct
and encourasemeut, to contribute to the
buildincupof a Bar worthy of the metroo
olts of the State, aud worthy to wear the
mantles of those who have precedad them.
The Hon. Montgomery Blair, whose distin
guished career is Kmiliar to al 1 of us, in
his late profesoioual visit to Nashville paid
us the complime-1 of saying that he had
always heard our Bar spoken of as
being an able one, and he was kind onough
to add that he found it still merited its re
nown. In a few years, the young men who
are listening to me mu .t take the places of
those who are now tha leaders. They must
ba the creat lawyers of their day and gen
.... j . nHHninfn n I n H fl t Vl Y
eration. Let them aim to qualify themselves
for their big- calling. It will give m great
pleasure, if they will do their duty, to aid
them in their task.
Since the death of Judge Frierson, who
was, as all who ever had the pleasure of
practicing before him kuow, a model Judge,
owing to circumstances familiar to all of
us, aud which need not be dwelt upon, this
Bench has been filled n rapid succession by
a numbor of incumbents. No one of them
to the elecliou of my immediate predecessor,
either felt that his tenure of office was very
secure or cared that it should be. They
were induced, by Che solicitation of their
professional brethren, to sacrifice themselves
temporarily, by accepting the office, rather
than compelled to occupy it by a wish to
dischargo its duties, aud with the expecta
tion of continuing in it. My immediate
predecessor, we ail know, and no one bet
ter than I, &c opted the situation aud con
tinued In it at the earnest entreaty of his
professional brethren. And although his
mmirn of office became secure, and although
eminently fitted for tho discharge of its du
ties, he very naturally felt that he was too
young a man, with too fair a prospect of
success at the Bar in every sense, lo bo
shelved for life on tha meagre disc meted
out to a Tennessee judge. He seems also to
litivp, fIt that, as he was holdins tho office
for our accommodation, we hid the right to
do pretty much as we pleased, a course that
will ba remembered to bis st rautage whan
tho lines aredrawn a little t: -.ht, as, perad
venture they may be. Whu. may be my
tenure of office is uncertain. I do not know
whether the position will please me, nor
whether my administration of its duties will
plaaso you; nor, if both these doubts be
solved iu the affirmative, whether the "sov
ereign" powers in this behalf will permit
the relat on iO be continued. I go into tho
office, however, as 1 havo gone through life,
with a determination to do my duty as if
tho tenure were parmanent. In this way I
am prepared for any contingency. If it
continue, well; if It .end, well too, if not
UO Mil .
TTnAay ihn circumstances referred
u u nnt surnrisins thit
thft court should
become greatly relaxed. In very truth,
we can hardly be said to have, had any set
tled practice. And the younger membera
of the Bar have been in a fair way of sup.
posing, that a Court of Chancery had no
tixed rules, and every lawyer was at liberty
to do 'that which was right m his own
Tf T miv ladze from what has been
said tome in private by membera of the
Bar of all ages, there is a general wish to
change our present mode of doing business
and to return to first principles. This in
clination fortunately, coincides with my
own convictions of duty. Under the oath
of office which I have this day taken,
I shall feel myself bound, in
administering justice impartially and
without respect of persons, to do so
by f jllowing the laws of the land, and the
well established rules of tho Court. These
are the growth of centuries, the work of
eminent judges and repressntative Legisla
tures and cannot but be better than the
suziestionB of my own indivi lual judgment
or will, iney may, uu.o me m v Mime,
work hardship in particular cases, uu& ino
injury to the lew is more inau tuuuier
baianced by the benefit of the many,
It will require some discretion on
my part, and some forbearance and
practice on yours, to enable us to make
the change successfully and pleasantly.
Upon you must fall the principal burden;
for, by voluntarily conceding to your, ad
versaries what has heretofore been granted
as of course, we may, in the course of two
or three terms, gradually and easily fall
into the more rigid enforcement of rules.
If the Court itself undertakes to suspend
the rules in particular cases, for any reason,
it will be aa if wo had none, and wo shall
never make a beginning of a settled prac
tice. , ,
With tho hope, gentlemen, that I may b9
able to fulfill your expectations, aud that
our relations in the future may bo aa pleas
ant as they have been in the past, I shall
proceed to the discharge of. my duties.
Peter Cummings formerly resided in

in his particular line ?as brisk in this city,
he left the home oi ni3 cnnuuuuu, ma juum
and early manhood, with a tear of regret
standing in the nor.heast corner of his left,
eye, fully b?nt on winning fame and for
tune in the Sunny South. Beaching Louis

His pocketbook looked very much as though

- . .( 11 V . ,1 1,1 ,.n..tl.
on it. Underi tbeso circumsiances,

would have taken oue drink of Louisville
whisky and died in their sins. But Cum
mings was made of sterner stuff. Ty ing
up his wardrobe in a pocket handkerchief,
ho secured a companion in the person of
John King, a fellow craftsman, and set out
for Nashville on foot. It is not the purpose
of this veracious writer to follow the twain
in their wanderings after leaving Louisville.

destined to pass unrecorded v Suffice it to
say, they safely reached this city the night
before Thanksgiving, aud henca were
in proper frame of mind to follow
the President's injunction to ob

dollars of a friend of King's whom they

According to the 8&tement of John
Ford, it was by the merest accident that ha
came to the city day before yesterday to
cet a little beef. Being in the city, he im
proved tha occision to get drunk glori

imposed upon him, sa'islied the city's out

'Ocli, bid luck to the mess I'm in now,"
exel timed Ann Conner as tbe name of that
estimable woman was called. It was the
same old story. - A cheap article of whisky
and cold weather on one side; a few nlckles,
a strong desire for stimulants and a weak
woman's will on the other. The court is
acquainted with Ann Conner. The court
has seen her before. Indeed the court i3
thoroughly familiar with her ways, having
frequently beeu under the Dainful necessity
of sending hsr to tha workhouse
"many times and oft,'' but
no; withstanding all this tho court
scouts at, and utterly repudiates the doc
trine of total depravity. The court is of
a trusting, confiding nature, always reidy
to extend helping hand to the needy and
unfortunate, aud Ann Conner fully real
ized that fact, as she begged for "j st wun
more chance, yer Honor just wun more
chance, and if yees '11 let me go this time,
yces 'A niver see me here agin." The
earnest appeal of the pleading woman was
too strong to be resisted, and the court
ordered her discharge.
Ann will be back again to-morrow.

While a soldier in the late war I was eo
materially benefitted by the use of Dr.
Jayne's Expectorant that I regard it my
duty to inform the public as to my experi
ence. Tnrougn tne exposure or camp-lire
in very severe weather, I contracted a cold,
which finally settled on my lungs, and in
consequence, the surgeon discharged me as
a consumptive. Soon af termy arrival home
I began to take Jayne's Expectorant, and in
a short time thereafter I began to improve,
so that in a few weeks I was enabled to cp
to my employment, farming. Frequently
since I have used the Expectorant iu my
family for colds and coughs, and always ob
tained a satisfactory result. I therefore
cannot hesitate to recommend this Temedy
for all colds, and for consumption In Its
earlier stages. William Barton, writing
