Tho Alabama and Chattanooga.
Speaking of tbe fix tbe Alabama and
Chattanooga railroad is in and its prospects,
the iVcw York Financier of last week says:
"As far as can be seen from the proceedings
of tlie special commissioner, the receiver's
certificates issued on this road will in fu
ture amount lo something over $1,000,000,
sav: $371,000 sold at 90 per cent.; $245,
000 for the lands in Chattanooga; $400,000
or about, real amount of loans made to the
receiver and interest to Sept. 1, 1875. In
addition, there will have to be paid in cash
$77,000 for wages and $200,000 or about for
"Further, it is said that for smaller in
debtednesses the company owes about
$125,CO0, which has to be paid in casb,and
$340,000, the amount of a judgment obtain
ed by J. C. Stantou in tbe Tennessee State
Court, thus putting the total liabilities of
tbe road at about $1,760,000. Whether tbe
claim of Stanton is actually good remains
to be proven. Tlie same may oe said about
some of the loans, which having been made
in the State of New York at usurious rates
might perhaps be rejected still, though they
have been allowed by the Couit of Equity.
Their amount is about $250,000.
"An oner has been made by Boston par
ties to pru chase the road, and it is said that
the European bondholders have sent over a
special attorney to negotiate with said par
ties. Nothing definite, however, is known

Middle Tennessee Granges, or their mem
bers, will act wisely to purchase the State
Fair Grounds and improvements near this
city, and have a very convenient place for
tbe salo and purchase of all kinds of farm
stock, agricultural needs and other farm
produce. Largo improvements in all breed
ing animals, seed wheat, corn, oats and
other grain may be made by careful expe
riments, and comparing results face to face

been made. It is only by intercourse, one
with another, that mankind increases in
useful knowledge. An isolated human be

between two or more persons and never in
one person alone. He could not learn In
infaney to talk to cattle, trees or rocks.
Hence all language and all education are
social in their origin and elements. Our
rural population need more social friction

Tlcnth ot; Josh Walton.
The announcement of the death of Josh
B. Walton, which occurred at 8:30 o'clock
yesterday moruine, in his ro'iin, corner of
Deaderick and Cherry streets, was sadly re
ceived by his many friends and acquaint
ances in this city. He was born in Wake
fiekl, Mass., where his aged parents now
reside, and came to Tennessee about twenty
years ago, when quite young, and engaged
in business in this city. He was always
known to be constant and trustworthy in
business, affable and gentlemanly in all
his relations, especially, in business
transactioiiS. At the opening of the
war, he joined Capt. Roundtree's cavalry,
from which lie was not long after trans
ferred to the first Tenuessee cavalry, under
CoL Morton, In which he served during tbe
remainder of the war, with that gallantry
for which tbe old First was so celebrated.
He received two wounds during the service,
both of which were slight, doing him no
A telegram was sent to his parents yes
terday asking what disposition should be
made of his remains, and they replied that
it was their desire that the body should be
sent home. His remiins wore visited by a
large number of his friends and acquaint
ances at his room yesterday. He was a Ma
son, but was not actively connected with any
particular lodge, yuiie a numoer oi ukj
Masonic fraternity assembled at bis room
last ni"lit and accomoanied his remains to
the depot, from which place they were ex
nressed to Wakefield. Mass. He had re
sided in Nashville ever since he first came
to Tennessee, with the exception ol a lew
years' residence in Memphis, and tho time
be was engaged in the war. He died
unexpectedly after a brief illness.
liis ilpAt.h he was encaged in

very much and deeply sympathize with his
beloved parents in their sudden bereave

A CITT lINDEa TUB SEA.
Kingston, Jamaica, Correspondence
In the latter end of the last century old
Port Royal disappeared beneath the waves
in an eartbquaKe, leaving no otuer memo
rial behind than these few patches 01 reels.
In calm and clear evenings, when there is
not a fioole on the glassy surface of the sea,
vou may look down into fifteen fathoms of
water and see submerged houses, towers
and chnrches, with sharks swimming
onietlv in and out of tbe open win
dows of their belfries. Tho work of centu
ries was destroyed in a few moments by
one single convulsive throb of the thin film
on which man has uvea anu specuiateu ior

Instigated in their enterprise by tales of
untold wealth buried beneath the sea by
this sudden shock, rescued no treasures but
tlie bis bell susoended still in the bell tower,
and donated the same lo the museum of
the island, where it may be seen, with
many puzzling inscriptions upon it, which
nobody has as yet been au;e to aecipnor.

Then, after a pause, he informed me of

plan long since adopted, and which not

dents gain access through openings
in tbo floor contrived for tbe purpose. At
night tho rats, lured by their keenness of.
scent, enter the room through these artiu-

AN ECCENTRIC TUAVEIiER.
Rex. A. N. Exreridon, a native of Bul
garia, who has been in the city for several
daysj left for Pittsburg last evening, having
eiven un the-idea of lecturing here. Bey.
Exneridon was for some time a slave of the
Turks: was redeemed with his family,
by ths Russian Government at a ccst
of $37,000, and educated by tho samo
at St. Petersburg, Constantinople,
Oxford, and Paris. He speaks
fluently thirteen languages. In 1800 lie
became a priest in the Greek Cburcb, and
in 1S08 was emnlovea oy tne cnurcn at a
salary of $150 per month to make a tour
of the earth, by which he will be enabled
to write a history of mankind. His appear
ancefis bv no means prepossessing. His cos
tume is of the very simplest character, con-
sisting of a long calico dress, a red flannel
cat. niiing ciosery upon me crown oi ms
head, and a pair of coarse leather shoes.
THE VELOCITY OF MAGNETISM.
In order to remove all doubts as to the
accuracy of the results of the preceding in
vestigators, Dr. Herwig has sought to de
termine tne velocity oi iransmission oi
magnetic influences by separating the vari
ous portions of his apparatus lo very conj
siderable distances; and he concludes that
if the action of tho terrestial maguetism
really possesses a definite velocity, it must
amount to at least a half million miles per
second; or, in other words, that tlie terres
trial magnetic influence makes itself felt at
any peint of the earth's surface in less than
one three-hundreths of a second.

Here is a sample of judicial equilibrium
by a negro "trial jestice" named D. M.
Pembroke, against whoso wife complaint
was preferred by a colored sister of petty
larceny in the theft of an under garment.
The wife was arrested upon a warrant is
sued by her husbaud, and she put in the
ploa that she had found the garment in
question; but tho justice pat no faith in
that story and committed his wife In de
fault of $100 bail to answer at tbe next
Circuit Court. Sbe now lies in the county
jail a victim to an inflexible justice who,
petliaps, was oniy 100 giau ui umjh

A NATivic of Calcutta recently asked a

did they send any apologies. Thereupon
the host promptly sued them for the price
nftliA fond which he had provided for the
lumnupt. and which, through their want of
vnrtesv. had been wasted. The Moonslff
wiwi heard the case thought the cause of
action a good one, and gave the insulted
host a decree for the amount claimed. The
High Court took a more rational, if less
sentimental, view of Iho matter. Tho
Moonslff 's decision was reversed, the pre
siding Judge remarking with grim humor

The London Court Circular says that a
