last to quit the Union and first to return to
it do we find the raass of citizens deprived
of the ballot, denied representation in their
own Capitol, and hourly denounced by a
faction which does not pretend to owe alle
giance to any popular constituency.
The-people have-pursued,-for nearly a
year and a half, the n.st unpretending and
inoffensive course. They bare plowed their
fields; they have cared for the sick and the
poor; and they are now beginning to reap
the fruit of .their toil in plentiful crops.- t
The negro has . been treated with marked
kindness. In short, every possible thing
that could indicate a peaceful disposition,
has characterized their acts.
On the other hand, this faction to which
we allude, which baa a motive for proving
the disloyalty of all who are opposed to it,
has kept up one unbroken line of assault.
No proclamation haa emenated from the
Governor which did. not contain abusive
epithets, and shameful .propositions.. No
act has passed from the Legislature of a
political nature which was not oppressive.
The object has been to wound and exasper
ate; .and : nothing would have pleased the
majority of the General Assembly so much
as an indiscreet popular outbreak. They
tried to make a revolution of the Memphis
riots; and there is never a public meeting
that is not described as a. "little rebellion.",

Tne KempMs Duel.
The Memphis Argus gives the following
statement of the fatal duel between two of
the citizen of that city on the 12th inst.:
One of the most melancholy affairs it has
ever been our duty to record, transpired in
Mississippi, a few miles below the city,
yesterday afternoon,, resulting in the death
of a well-known citizen at the bands of
another. As nearly as we can learn the
facts are as follows:
Two or three days since Mr. Henderson
Taylor, (who is a brother cf a well known
fellow-citizen, Dr. Arthur K., Taylor) and
Capt. Alonzo Greenlaw (son of Mr. Wi B.
Greenlaw,) met on the street. After a few
words Capt. Greenlaw , struck Mr. Taylor
in the face with bis open hand. The mat
ter went no farther, at that time, but the
next day Capt. Greenlaw received a note
from Mr. Taylor, which resulted in the
parties, accompanied by friends, repairing
to a point in Mississippi, six or seven miles
below the city. v ;
At that point a duel was fought between
the two gentlemen yesterday afternoon.
We learn that Col. Milton Haynes acted as
second to Mr. - Taylor, and Mr. Gift for
Capt. Greenlaw. The distance was ten
paces, the weapons navy repeaters. Ac
cording to our informant, the principals
were to fire at any time after the words,
"Are you ready fire!" and were to con
tinue discharging their weapons until one
of the two fell.
The weapons were discharged almost
simultaneously, and. Mr. Taylor fell mor
tally wounded in the bowels at the first
We know nothing authentic of the origin
of the difficulty which has resultad so tragi
cally, and wbose sad features are rendered
doubly sad by the fact that both are gentle
men of fine social standing, and connected
with two of our oldest, most esteemed
Infamous' if True.
We take the following from the New
York Weekly Magazine, 7th, inst., publish
ed by the American News Company:
"It has been discovered that the men
recently employed IT" the Government to
disinter the bodies of our dead soldiers on
the battle-fields near Richmond, after hav
ing searched the bodies for money, and
jewelry, pulled open the mouths of the
corpses, punched out the teeth, examined
if they were plugged, and if they were,
cracked the teeth to pieces for the sake of
the gold fillings. No insult that the rebels
have.offered to the loyal dead .can approach
in attrocity this most incredible desecra
tion." Gen. Fitzhugh Lee. The Louisville
tTcwrrcasays: "We have just seen an article
strongly praising Major-Gen. Fitzhugh
Lee. Most heartily da we endorse every
thing said in favor of that officer, excepting
his participation in the rebellion. It is
very little that he was the handsomest offi
cer in the Southern armies, but it is very
much that he possessed unsurpassed mili
tary skill and science and nobleness of feel
ing. We were bis guest in his humble
tent, ' open to the winds of winter but for
some losely intertwined pine boughs, yet
his hospitality, all unobtrusive and unos
tentatious, was worthy of a Paladin. In
military science we think him the first man
in the South his father excepted."
The chains and iron work of the Char
lotte and Columbia Railroad bridge, over
the Catawba River, South Carolina, are
made from the muskets, bayonets, shells,
&c, picked up on Virginia battle-fields,
and which were stored in the Confederate
armory at Richrrsoud when that building
was burnt, at the time of the evacuation.
The iron was bought by Messrs. Joseph R.
Anderson & Co., of the Tredgar Iron
Works,, as scrap iron, and by them worked
into cables, &c, to fill an order for this
Profits or Tobacco Farming. The re
cent tobacco fair at Louisville, Ky., showed
some of the profits of farming. The hogs
head which brought the first premium was
grown by Jacob Detweiler, in Franklin
county, Missouri, and was 6old for 5.55
a pound. Mr. Detweiler's total consign
ment to the fair was 6ix hogsheads of to
bacco, weighing in the aggregate 3,680
pounds, all of which sold for sums varying
from 81 cents to 85,55 a pound, according
to quality, the total sum being 87,690.
These six hogsheads were grown upon four
teres of ground, so that this farm netted
him 81. 925 30 per acre.
The Metropolitan Police.
An amendment to the Metropolitan Po
lice Bill has been introduced in the Senate.
It instructs the Treasurer to advance funds
for the establishment of the' system; and
provides that in case the city and county
shall fail to make sufficient provision, the
Commissioner shall. make an estimate of
funds necessary, and proceed, after the ap
proval of the Comptroller and Governor, to
collect arbitrarily without let or limit. The
bill also attempts to restrain the courts from
issuing injunction against such proceeding.
Comment on such high-handed and outra
geous proceeding would, be folly.
The President's cabinet is undergoing a
thorough reform. P. M. General Dennison,
Attorney General Speed, and Hon. Freeman
Clark, Comptroller of the Currency, have
been permitted to resign, and Mr. Harlan
is expected to do so soon. Their successors
have not been named. It is not positively
known what Secretary Stanton will do, but
it is supposed that be will soon resign.
The resigning members are in favor of
the Constitutional amendments and the rad
ical party, and opposed to the Philadelphia
Convention and the conservatives.

of that which every . honest man deems a

A Sheriff in Trouble. We clip the
following paragraph from the Memphis
Avalanche, of Wednesday: "We learn that
Hon. Wm. M. Smith, Judge of the Chancery
Court, has issued a writ of mandamus,
commanding the Sheriff to. appear before
him and show cause why the .votes cast in
the recent election for Attorney General
were not counted and forwarded, according

"Gen." Grant recently remarked k;a gentle

that 'unless the Southern States were speed

President's message vetoing the new freed
men's bureau bill is now ready, but he will
probaly avail himself of the full period of
ten days allowed him by the Constitution
for the consideration of the acts of Congress.
In the case of the previous vetoes of Presi
dent Johnson, the obnoxious bills had
originated in the Senate, and consequently
the message of disapproval was sent to this
body. In this case, however, as the bill
originated in the House, the veto will be
sent to that body. The Radicals cf the
House are already marshaling their forces
under the leadership of the namby-pamby
Massachusetts negrophilist, Elliott, to pass
the bill over the veto. This will be done,
if possible, under the operatiod of the pre
vious question, and without a word of de
bate; and then doubtless we shall have
another convocationof the ebonies in the
galleries and another scene of darkie en
thusiasm." Since the above was in type the Presi
dent has sent in his reto, and the bill has
I passd over his veto. '

The first fruits of the revolutionary pro
ceedings of the Tennessee Legislature were
witnessed in Nashville. Hon. Pleasant
Williams, a member of the Legislature from
Carter county, waa. Xarcibly arrested at his
home, on Sunday morning last, before day
light, by two men, named Frame and Sigel,
one of them a white man, and the other a
negro which was the white and which
the black we did not learn. He was hur
ried to the cars by these persons in hot haste
and brought to this city. On his arrival
he was turned over to Wm. Heydt, a special
sergeant-at-arm3 (an officer unknown to the
laws of Tennessee), created for this special
occasion. He was then carried to the capi
tol, and there kept in close custody during
the greater part of the day not being al
lowed to go to his dinner.
In the afternoon Mr. Williams, through
a friend, was enabled to communicate with
counsel, who immediately applied to Judge
Thomas N. Frazier, of the Criminal Court,
for a writ of habeas corpus, which he grant
ed, and the hearing is set for this morning
(18th) at 9 o'clock, at the Court House in

Conflict of Authority.
The Memphis Appeal, 15th inst., says:
"The case of McDermott, for the use of
himself and Geo. W. Duvall vs. Robert E.
UClary, taken up. on yesterday, developed
f features somewhat exciting- and startling.
General Clary having resisted the Sheriff of
the county and expelled him from the
premises with force of arms, was attached
by the Court for contempt, but owing to
some informality in the proceedings, the
attachment was . dismissed. The Court
granted, another attachment against the
body of General Clary, which attachment
was placed in the hands of Deputy Sheriff
Carroll, who proceeded to enforce the order
of the Court. General Clary called on the
guard of regulars doing duty at his head
quarters, and ordered them to put' the
D puty Sheriff out of his house, or kill him.
Deputy Sheriff Carroll, deeming prudence
the better part of valor, retired from the
field, and entered up his 'return' according
ly. On the return being presented to the
Court, his Honor Thomas G.Smith, on the
motion of counsel, issued an order to the
Sheriff to summon the posss commitatus and
arrest General Clary; to make the arrest in
such force aa will overcome all opposition,
and, if necessary, to call in the Metropoli
tan Police force, and when the arrest shall
have been made, he was empowered to take
bonds in the sum of three thousand dollars
for the appearance of Robert E. Clary on
"It remains to be seen whether Brevet
Brigadier General Robert E. Clary, D. Q.
M. G., has the right or power to set the
law of the land at defiance, and 'laugh the
power of courts to scorn.' "
Speaking of the European conflict, the
Nashville Banner says: "We cannot deter
mine upon such details as the number of
men slain, or the aggregate flags and can
non captured, though we may easily form
a just conjecture as to general results.
"The 'dash' of the Prussians has done
what 'dash never fails to do. By sweep
ing through Saxony and invading Bohemia,
Prussia established, by ne splendid blow,
an almost impregnable line. The effort of
the Austrians to forbid the junction of the
two Prussion armies advancing into Bohe-
-wa, lue one uy way oi oaxoDy snu me
. - e e J.i.
.her by way of Silesia, has been unsuc
cessful. The Prus.an armies are united,
and the Austrians have been defeated in a
great battle. The Prussian account states
that they have not lost a gun, but have
taken twenty-eight Austrian guns and a
number of standards, with fifteen thousand
prisoners, while twenty thousand Austrians
have been killed and wounded. The army
under Benedek was defeated with this im
mense loss, and driven in confusion from
the field. The military arm of Prussia ad
mirably seconds her diplomacy, and now
maintaining a successful offensive againt
Austria, she is the undisputed master of
Northern Germany, and takes a first rank
among the great powers of Europe."
A horrible case of rape occurred at Mo

young lady, daughter of a wealthy citizen,
while strolling in the woods about 2 hun

five ruffians, who beat her insensible, and
then outraged her. Before leaving, the
ruffians suspended her by the neck to the
branch of a tree, where she was found.
She lived but twenty minutes after being
taken down, but before her death described

A special from Washington ssjs: The
current gossip at the capitol to-day was
that members were endeavoring to plan
some scheme whereby the Senate can nomi
nally remain in session until the next meet
ing of Congress, to keep a check upon re?
movals from office by the President. There
are so many legal and other objections i.
the way. however, that the scheme must
apparently fall through. Another proposi

until that time.
