beautiful poem writen by a "Yank" to a
Reb," which was received by a friend on
the 14 mstas a Valentine. It will appear
in our columns next week, together with
Fresh Arrivals. Since our last, J. D.

The bill providing for the winding up of
the State Bank of Tennessee, which passed
the Senate some days since, wa3 passed on
its final reading on the 18th inst.
Mr. Foote declares that Davis' cabinet
consisted of two knaves. Benjamin and
Seddon; two fools; Mallory and Meminger;
and only two members. Watts and Reagan,
"whose qualifications we're respectable."
"The Wizard of the Saddle." All
the reports about Gen. Forrest having fled
the country, are untrue. The Memphis
Bulletia and the Afpeal both tell U3 that
he was in Memphis on Sunday last. He
has been at his plantation in Mississippi,
Small Pox. We believe there is but one
case of this disease among the white popu
lation of Pulaski. We are encouraged in
the hope that it is abating, and will soon
disappear from our midst.
To be Pitted. Our stirring feUow-citi-zen,
W. J. Rainet, is now under the ban
of that most dreadful of all diseases, the
small pox. John Happy would say, he is
to be "pitted." We are gUd to hear that
he is thought to be recovering rapidly. We
trust he'll not be "pitted" enough to spoil
IIeavt Receipts. The receipts of
freight, by railroad, has been very heavy
for a few days past. In fact, some have
even intimated a belief that our merchants
had bought out Nashville or Louisvill, and
were now engaged ia having it shipped
The effoits of our friends to increase the
subscription list of the Citizen, are, we re
joioe to say, proving very successful. We
hare received assurances from every part
of the county, except, perhaps, two neigh
borhoods, that the people generally like the
tone and temper of our paper. They are
proving this in a manner most satisfactory
to us, by forming clubs in their neighbor
hoods, , and sending in, every week, new
names for the lists. The delinquent neigh
borhoods will wake up after a.while. They
used, to pronize us more liberally than
any other portions of tho county. We are
.sure they will come again.
The Pulaski Literary. League.
.Mr. Editor: It ia my pleasant duty to
announce to you, that you have been unani
mously elected an "asaociCie" or honorary
m.Kcr et tha PnlncVi LiterarT League."
The society, composed of a number of
young men of our city, for the advancement
of literature and science, and the acquisition
of liberal knowledge, has never been in a
more flourishing condition than now; and
yet, there ia reason to believe, that the star
of its glory has not yet reached its zenith.
They are governed by the rules and
principles of parliamentary usage, but a
little different from this august body of Her
Britaaio Majesty's, they have only a house
of Lords. Political questions are forbid
den for discussion; so yon see, sir, there is
yet, in "this distracted land," one assemb
lage of deliberators and debators who do
not consume all their turn in fussing and
aqutbling about "Nigger Suffrage" and
"Freedmen's Bureau Bills," while we may
live in hopes, that this, and other similar
institutions, may someday be the means
through which our country shall be ruled
by more sensible men.
The subject for discussion next meeting
is "Resolved, That a Republican or a
Monarchial form of Government is the more
staple." A full attendance and an exciting
debate 13 expected, snayourprebeu
K lialled with oreat cleasure. Come and
see the British Lioa bearded in his den
tho American Eagla slaughtered, and be
hold the pouring tears of sympathy for the
poor oppressed "Fenians," who will yet
. u tha TTftl-a nf trranv and "wear the
rreen" and tread arrain, in freedom,
V-.t;f.,l nf lb Khamrorl. Come,
tna resurrection oi Marcus uruius,
tread with him again the pallatial halls
the ancient Roman Republic, and listen to
the eloquence of her orators and her states
men, and then behold the majestic walls
crumble -into dust, to be numbered among
the things that were. Come, and gaza with
us, upon tke grandeur of the English Mon
archy, which ha3 withstood the storms and
dissensions, of revolution and war for hun
dreds of years, and the young America,
with her pillars of state still firm, though
shaken from centre to circumferencey the
thunders of rebellious arms. Come, and
leave, for awhile, your "exchanges," whose
columns are filled with disgusting Radical
harangues. Come and bring with you
your casket of intellectual jewels, as another
ornament to this frugal board, at the
"feast of reason." ' Cadmus.
We thank the Pulaski "Literary League"
for the honor thus ccnfeired, and we thank
our friend, Cadmus, for .the complimentary
manner in which he informs us of these
honors. Our thanks due him further for
his contributions to our columns, and we
trust he will favor us often.
Of course we will take great pleasure in
leaving for a while each week the monoto
nous perplexities of editorial life, to enjoy
such a feast as our friend invites us to.
We rejoice to know that the League is in
a flourishing condition, but we are not at all
supprised at this, knowing as we do that it
is composed of the talent of Pulaski.
We shall have more to say of the League
in a fnture issue.
On Tuesday the Democracy throughout
the North fired salutes in honor of Presi
dent Johnson and his veto of the Freedman's
Two lunatics in an asylum in England,
met, loved, courted, married and became
Latin. " Because we ventured last
week," says an exchange, "to introduce a
faw Latin words into a paragraph, just to
make a little show of our knowledge, a con
temporary quotes Latin at us in a most fe
rocious manner. He says '2iih.il Jit.' Who
is Nihil? Who did he fight? and what
did he fight for?"
The Republican majority in Congress are
attempting to induce the President tftsign
the Freedmen's Bureau Bill, by saying that
they will admit the Tennessee delegation
to their seats.
In the Kentucky Legislature, the com
mittee appointed to examine buildings at
Louisville for legislative purposes, reported
in favor of removing the capital to that city.
Congress now proposes to declare all
persons born in the United States, citizens.
This includes, of course, people of African
descent as well as others. The children of
uncivilived races are thus to be declared
part of the family of the great republic.
