As the 4 o'clock train from Chattanooga was
coming into the city on Thursday morning fest,
the engineer noticed the body of a man lying
.across tbe track.
The whistle was blown and tho bell rung, hut
without effect. As the train was nndcr full head
way, it was found impossible to stop it in time to
prevent rnnning over the body, which was cut in
two by the locomotive. On invcstigatinglthe mat
ter it was found that tbe man had received a blow-
on the head which could not have resulted from
the motion of the cars. The general supposition
seems to be, that he was first murdered, and then
plaeed on the track to lead to tho belief that his
death was procured by being run over.
At soon as tho train arrived in town the cngi
necr promptly reported the fact to the master me

In accordance with the several proclama-
tionB of the President of th United State,
tlic (Jovcrnor of Tennessee, and the Mayor
of JJashTille, Thursday the 7th instant was
generally observed as .1 day of thanksgiving.
The places of business of -the principal houses
of the city were closed during the day. .Some
however were open carlv in the inoriiinc-,
and closed during thehours of divine service.
The city had the appearance generally pre
sented on the Sabbath, and there seemed to
be a general disposition, ostensibly at least,
to have due regard to the proper observance
of the day.
Service were held in tho McKcndrec
Church, the Cherry Street J'aptist Church,
the Itoptist Chapel, the First Presbyterian
Church, and probably in other churches,

)Vifm50. 11, "Offer unto God Thanksgiving."
W'pi have come together to-ilnv. in obedience to
tho proclamation of tho President of tho United
Status, backed by tho proclamation of tho Gov
ernor of Tennessee, to olFcrunto God thanksgiving
for our manifold blessings nnd mercies. In no
way can tho deep fountains of tho soul be broken
up, and flow forth in gratitude to an earthly bene
factor, more easily than by some net of kindness,
or when the voico of sympathy soothes tho anx
ious troubled spirit. Our nature is such that
sympathy shown us in misfortune opens up the
holiest places of tho heart. Tho breath of Iovo
is nlway laden with returning odors of sweetness;
each unilu of encouragement, or of joy from
another, deepens the emotion- that comes gushing
up from our own hearts. If such bo tho feelings
prompted I'v the generous actions of an earthly
friend, whether in word or deed, should notour
Heavenly relationship call forth still more deep
hallowed acknowledgments for mercies re
ceived, and gifts so bounteously bestowed by our
divine Fnther's lovo. Although there havo been
mnny blighted hope', s,id hearts, and desolnto
homes, during the year, although, when tho house
hold gathers around tho thanksgiving-table, thcro
will bo many a silent tear dropped over vacant
chairs; although there have been many calamities
which have fallen with crushing weight upon
families and communities, yet, collectively con
sidered, wc havo much for which to ofTei unto
God thanks to-day. The succession of seasons,
day ami night, seedtime and harvest, havo not
been interrupted. Spring opened upon us 111 all its
beauty, with its balmy air, its blooming flowers,
nnd singing birds: then it molted into summer,
with starry nights nnd golden harvests ; now au
(iinin'K liraeiuff breeze invigorates the hodv. while
itsgnthorcil stores make glad tho heart; nnd wo
have in pro.puct n plenuut ana liuppy winter.
Our citizens have cnioved general health : 110 cni-
drmlo has thiown tho dark shadow of death over
our city, or brought bitter sorrow and dom'ation
into our homes. Tho noise of war is heard no
moro; the clash of arms lShuMictl; tho carnago
of tho battlefield has ceased. Peace is once moro
our goodly heritage, and wo soo no longer our
brothers' garments rolled in blood. Tho sword has
been turned into tho ploughshare, and tho spear
into the pruning book. Tho soldier of yesterday
is now tho citizen of to-dny. engaged in commer
cial nnd profcsionnl life, iu tho pursuits of art.
science, elocution, or in mo Honest tilling 01 tho
soil. Wc nro again worshipping God under our
own vino and fig tree, in the language first lisped
around our mother's knee.
The smrit of i oil has been moving unon tho
concicnco and stirring tho hearts of multitudes,
especially in this Commonwealth, until they havo
earnectly cried out; "Men and brethren, what
must wo do to bo saved?" Thus, many have
turned from the error of their ways: they have
been born into the kingdom of God. All these
blessings have crowned our lives; surely then wo
should heartily otTcr, trom our hearts, thanksgiv
ing unto God within his courts.
1 hanksuivilig is a service which has always had
n til.irn ninouir tho children of men. In the grey
dawn of time it was part of tho di inc worship of
Cain and Abel, when, liclorc a visililo nltnr, tho
fruit of the ground nnd tho firstlings of the flock
were the thnnk-otrering which they presented unto
tho Lord. Afterward. wheUtho Church liada vis
ible organization, tho thank-offering was by di-
Miie appointment; liiormoinpartoi nerworsmp,
and was embraced in the religious services of tho
tabernacle. This was evidently tho caso in tho
time of David; for the hook of Psalms represents
him ns singing, in strains of softest nnd sweetest
melody, tli"? praise of God for dcliveranco from
danger nm brs gcncrnl mercies to the Church.
Then, when the old dispensation had run its
couisc. when its moonlight was brightening into
the splendor of the Gospel day. shepherds on the
plains of Bethlehem united tbo chorus of their
voices, ami ushered it in with tho song of thanks
giving. So now, in the Christian church, all the
ordinances und privileges which aro so precious to
the believing heart afford grounds for continual
thanksgiving. Neither does this blessed, glorious
work stop here; for, when tho soldier of tho cross
ha fought the good fight of faith nnd gained the
final victory: when his feet walk the golden streets,
and be stand" before tho eternal Throne pouring
forth the cratitude of his hcArtin lofty aspirations
of praise unto the Lamb Hint was slain, ho will re
ceive power, wisdom, ttrenstli, honor, glory' and
blessing.
This thanksgiving is an old service in the
Clnuyh of Gon : and it will forever constitute the
key-nuto in the song of the ranvomed around tho
e erlnsling J nrone. it i oy iiumcans a new ser
vico in tho State. St. Paul htys, "There is.no
tower but ofGon; tho powers that bo arc ordain
ed or Gun." (ltomans, 13: 1.1 This being so. civil
government is an ordinnneoof Goi. "It has, 'says
a departed divine, referring to this subject,
" a moral character, a moral responsibility. Civil
poverament is a creation of God, with a detiny
dependent upon its moral character. Tho only
difference between God's dealing with govern
ments and nations, and his dealings with in
dmduals is this, that as governments only have
existence in this world they have all their exist
ence and punishment here, while individuals arc
finally indeed and punished in tho world to come.
With this diflertucc in existence ard punishment,
lioth are equal in moral rospontibility, that is, ac
countable, and are punished or blessed according
to their characters. Tho destiny of civil govern
ment depends upon its moral character just as lul
Iv as the destiny of an individual. " Byrne," says
God, "kings reign and princes decree justice.' He
putteth down one and scttcth up another; whilst
theyiiureli is ever under the guardian watch-enre
and protection of its covenant God. and therefore
safe from destruction. It is equally true, as the
record of lmtory proves, that the character and
destiny of a State depend greatly upon the moral
infiuenceof theChurch. Yi here nro thoso govern
ments that slew tho prophets, martyred the
saints, waged an exterminating crusado against
the Church of tlod? Where is that nation
which culminated in wickedness, and cruci
fied wttb aiuel hands the Son of God An
swer comes laek to us "To fulfil prophesy,
God has scattered and wasted that nation." Those
that honor lum he will honor, and thoo that des
pise hnn shall he lightly esteemed. His lmnd will
be against the people who acknowledge him not.
Hence U is appropriate that the State, which is
but a creature of t!l, should offer thanksghing.
This sen ice lm alw ays had a place in the hearts
of the American people. The first thanksgivine
sen ice of which webnve any record, on this
continent, took place 111 Jamestown, Va., in May,
110. Immediately on the arrival of Lord Dela
ware, (the flrst man who lre the title of Gover
nor in Vs.' with a supply of provisions and three
hundred in mi thatcniue with him, ho fell on hi
knens, as Paul did on the sea shore, and, in pres
ence of all the compsuy. made a long and silent
prayer. Before he eihlbited his credentials ho
attended church, and a thanksgiving Sermon was
preached.
The first thanksgiving day mentioned in the
hitory of the Pilgrims occurred in December,
lrtll. Edward Wtnslow writes of it to n friend in
England: "After harvest. Gov. Bradford sent
four men a fowling, so that hs might offer thanks
giving, after a special Manner, utlei we had gath
ered the fruit of our labors. These men got as
much fwwl as supported the company nearly a
week." Itistrnethat thcPilrrirasoffurrd tusnk:fc
Eivinc to their Preserver Immediately rca landing;
ut hcy could not thank God for the frnits of the
earth, 1'tr thoy had none to gather to. But in the
aV.vo iccorditis especially mentioned, that the
festival was .rtcr Ann-.f. that it was by Ploint
raent of the Govcmer, and that tha nppoiutmcnt
was after n special manner. The day has been
renerally, perhaps always, observed ever since.
(leueralW ashuigton, who hadjust been appointed
President f tho thirteen I mtcd States, appointed
a general thaukgtnng to bo observed throughout
thvlr citcnt, Thu was perhaps the first tiarioani
thanksgiving ever held in our land. There is no
account of a thanksgiving ever having been held
on any other day than Thursday. At first, it was
bv State nnnointment: of late, it has been ob
served in accordance with the proclamation of
the .National tiecutive.
To-day, therefore, in observing this time honor
ed custom we are not alone; for, within His
courts, thousands of hearts offer unto God thanks
giving for all his -mercies. Let us thank God to
gether for home and for health, for the friends he
has left us as well as for thoso that are gone, for
his fatherly bounty in giving us wealth, for his
merciful justice when wealth is withdrawn.
"Oh 1 let us pray that when life shall he o'er.
And the last earthly rites unto us havebcen given.
We may meet those we lovo on eternity's shore.
And give n more joyful thanksgiving in Heaven.''
But as "righteousness exalts .1 nation, while
sin is a reproach to any people," it is becoming
for tis all on this occasion, as tho proclamation of
tho President says, "to make confession of our na
tional sins against His infinite goodness, and im
plore tho Divine guidance in the ways of nation
al virtue and holiness." God being the ruler over
ns. His providence extends equally to nations and
individuals. The cation that honors Hun. obeys
his laws, and reverences his name, ho blesses;
whilst the nation that sets at naught his counsel
nnd tramples under foot his word, ho scourges.
As a national capacity ceases at death, so nation
al sin' are punished by national judgment in this
life. It has always been so. It was so with tho
Canaanites, witli the Syrians and Babylonians,
with tho Greeks, the Hebrews, and the Jlomans.
Europe verifies the same truth yearly. The na
tions are reaping just what their fathers, their
rulers, and themselves have sown. If they sow
the wind they shall reap the whirlwind.
Nations being made un of individuals it is
therefore proper that wc should feel our personal
responsibility. Now let u examine our own
hearts. Do we find there nothingwrong that should
be made better? Is there not much requiring our
prompt attention, which has been sadly, wickedly
neglected? Have wo not done much which it
would have been infwitcly better to havo left un
done? Is our conduct not faulty towards tho
poor, tho needy, and the sorrowing? Havo we
Harbored within our hearts envy or hatred, cher
ished pride, or followed after vanity? Looking at
our individual relations in tho church and in soci
ety, should wo not cry aloud; "MiscTahlo sinners
am we all; God. bo merciful unto us?"
But. as .1 nation, our sins nro many, great, and
aggravated. Tho catalogue is truly appalling: in
gratitude, pride, forgctfulncsa of God and of his
son Jesus Christ: departure from tho simplicity of
tho faith of our fathers; grasping avarice ; bound
less ambition; recklessness of human life; fierce
ness of party spirit; jioliticnl corruption; blind
speculation: repudiation of just obligations; vio
lence; profane swearing: gambling; intemper
ance; licentiousness: fraud; dishonesty; fearful
neglect of tho word nnd laws of God, and of tho
means of grace: and wicked desecration of his
holy day by tho authority of the law. All theso
arc crying to Heaven against us ns individuals, as
state", and ns a nation. They demand at our
hands instant repentance towards God, and faith
in the Lord Jesus Christ. Our national sins havo
been heinous against God's infinite goodness, and
unless out rulers havo wisdom to guido them in
tho fear of God, and our legislator! have wisdom
from on high to enable them to enact wholesome
and equitable laws; unless our people havo graco
to walk in the fear of tho Lord; and unless there
is national virtue and holiness, the wrath of that
God who has always punished sin will overtake
us. Already tho pestilence hangs in the heavens
above us; it but awaits His bidding to .(prcad its
black wings over our land; then, falling upon our
cities nnd towns, tho fearful carnival of dentil will
be inaugurated. Shall wo not heed tho warning
voice? Shall we not reform and repent, or must
the sound of weeping bo heard throughout tho na
tion until sorrow heart-rending sorrow shall fill
every house in our land?
Surely, my brethren, our duty is plain; wo
should express gratitude to God, repent sincerely
of nil our sins, believe on tho Lord Jesus Christ,
nnd show fervent charity towards all men. Wo
should obey nil lawful authority, support our ru
lers, be faithful in the discharge of all duties as
citizens, members of soeicty, and Christians. Then
should we be a happy people, and tho Gon of Ja
cob would be our God. Whilst wo have, therefore.
the joys and tho fellowships of home, the blessings
nnd til 0 friendships of society, tho privileges and
the cnioymijitsof the sanctuary, peace nnd health,
with the bih'o for our chart, wo should to-day of
fer unto God thanksgiving. Let us not forget, in
this hour, thco who are deprived of the blessings
which fill our hearts with joy nnd our homes with
gladness thoo who arc friendless tho needy nnd
tho hungering, tho houseless nnd tho suffering,
thoso ruined 'n fortune and wrecked in hopes.
Look nbroad nnd see the thousands of once happy
homes th.it now nro darkened wilhlprrow, and
there you will Lear tho wail of tho wiunw for help
nnd the jrpharrs cry for bread. Let thc?o not bo
forgotten in out sympathies our benefactions, and
our prayers when gathered comfortably around
our fparkling fires The earth is yet fresh about
tho grnves of some who formerly joined us in
hearty thanksgiving, but who now sleep far awny.
No loved one may tread softly around their lone,
narrow bed; they sleep far away, with no kind
hand to plant a rose-tree to mark their lat resting
place. In our social re-unions, when our families
aro one again, wo should fondly cherish their
memory in our hearts, and drop tho tear of sorrow-
over their early death.
.May Almighty Ood giveyou all a nappy tnanKS

(riicrul Slcrllnsr Price.
The New York Xeics savs that letters have
been received in that city from General
Price, dated at Cordova, Mexico, on the loth
of November. Governor Harris of Tennes
see, the lion. John Perkins, Jr., of Louis
iana, Gen. fchclby of .Missouri, and a great
many other ofliccrs and men of the late
Confederate armv, were also at the same
place ; the district of Cordova having been
(elected by the Imperial Commissioners as
the scat of the colonv which those gentlemen
propose to found in Mexico. That paper is
permitted to quote what 'jcncral Price says
about the lands which have been set apart
bv Maximilian for this colonv.
"Thev are about seventv miles from Vera
Cruz, and on the railroad leading thence to
the City of Mexico. The road is being rap
idly constructed and is now in operation to
wit'hin fifteen miles of the iilace, and will
be completed to the town of Cordova within
a few months, nnd to tho Citv of Mexico
within two years. These lands arc three
thousand feet alwve the level of the sea, and
aro as fertile at any of tho Platte lands
Note. Tho Platte "purchase, which is in
the northwestern jiart of Missouri, comprises
the richest lands in that State, and perhaps
tn the Union. En. Nkw. They arc un
surpassed in the production of corn, tobac
co, coffee, vegetables of everv kind, and all
the tropical fruits. The land's, which lie lc
tween this elevated country and the coast,
produce as much and as good cotton as
the Louisiana lands. AVo are practically
as near the markets of New York and
New Orleans ns the people of Central Mis
souri arc; nnd the climate is the best in the
world. The thermometer never rises above
ninety degrees, nor falls below seventy. The
water is excellent, and we can get ice from
the mountains covered willi perpetual snow,
which are in plain sight, and about thirty
miles distant. The Imperial Government
lias purchased the lands from the original
proprietors, and sells them to us at one dol
lar per acre.
"Our colony commences with about thirty
Confederates, all of whom arc in high spir
its, and expect to make fortunes raising cof
fee. A gentleman who has lived licrfe a few
years, sold hi last year's coffee crop for
iSl 0,000) sixteen thousand dollars. It was
produced on sixty (GO) acres of land. He
works only ten hands. He tells me that his
fruit trees can supply his table with a differ
ent variety of fruit each dav in the year. His
cafTec plantation, shaded with every species
of fruit tree loaded with fruit, and the walks
bordered with pine-apples, is certainly the
most lienutiful farm that I have ever seen."
A French author having recently applied
to the Paris Poard of Index, as tfie official
elisors are called, for the stamp to authorise
the sale of a translation into French of
Tliackcn-'H " Memoirs of an English Valet"
(' Jcemes's Diary ,') the tdamp was refused
for the following most ludicrous reason:
" Pecausc tho look contains strictures on the
British aristocracy of such intense acerbity
that remonstrances from her Majesty's Gov
ernment might be the consequence of its au
thorised circulation."
Mr.'Xuhan. the well-known " Hare and

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OX CLAIMS.
Tho Committco on Claims having bcforolhcm
tho claim of F. W. Strickland for services render
ed on tho fctato Capitol, would respectfully re
port? They have examined the p pcrs, and find that
William Strickland, tho father of tho present
claimant, was engaged, under a written contract,
. 1 11 . : r n ..:
10 SUpcnmcim too I'OllMruuiiuu 01 too ouuu uir
tol makiiifr the drawimrr. etc. William Strick
land was employed to do this without authority to
buy material or employ men, except ny 1110 au
thority and with tho consent of the commission.
It appears that F. . btrickland assisted his
father, in his office, from 1S4S to his father's death
in 1851. There is no evidence bejoro tho Commit
tee Hint William Strickland ever applied to the
commission lor assistance, or tnai inerc was any
elniin mnile for navmcnt until sonio time in 1S52.
The claim having been submitted to tho court3 of
law, and decided adversely, wo aro not called on
to decide tho legality. Wc would state that tho
MiMtn-int sued thn .State for .-MS00. the flmouot now
asked for us to allow. He got a verdict for ij.1500
in tho Circuit Court, it was tnKcn to 111c .su
premo Court and reversed, wo do not know on
what grounds. ... , ,
There has been no new ovidenco introduce 1 be
fore us, which would authorize us to overrule tho
lwiiiinne nf two former committees on tho some
subject, nod the decision of two former legislatures
on thesame subject.
Thcro is cvidenco before us that K W. Strick
land rendered efficient service in makingdrawings,
overlooking works, Ac. Wc havo also a letter
ft-om JUr. Meigs, saying ttiat no ougnito uo paid,
but wn think that it would be n dangerous prece
dent, if wo should, after n period of fourteen years
has clapped from tho beginning, nnd twclvo years
from the close of the contract, now allow tho
claim. Any other person wno line worKca or iur-
nished material lor tnc I'aimoi, migiu come ior
wnrd nnd plead that they had not been paid in full.
Wo would never know when wowcrodono paying.
There wcrcm en appointed by tho Legislature
to tnko charge of, and attend to tho payment
of all persons, cither for labor or material. Wo
think especially at this iato day, that their action
Simula uo considered unni.
Wo thcrcforo recommend its rejection.

is tho main, the same bill offered by Mr. Cooper

THE RAILROAD RILL.
House bill, No. 293, being the special onlcr of
the day, was taken up. Tho bill provides certain
appropriations to the several llailroad of tho
State.
Mr. Faulkner moved ns an amendment that
thrappropriationtothcManchrslcr and McMinn
villc road he changed from $100,000 to f340,(JU0.
Adopted.
Mr. Grimmelt offered an additional amendment
appropriating $2ti0,000 to the Tennessee and Geor
gia llailroad. Adopted.
Mr. Unulston offered a further amendment ap
propriating $125,000 to the Nashville and Chatta
nooga road, for the purpose of completing tho
branch between Bridgeport and Jasper. Adopted.
Tho bill with its numerous amendments wns then
put oti its third reading and passed by ayes 46,
noes 16.
Tho consideration nf Senate bill No. 155 was re
sumed. It involves tho increase of pay of certuin
Judge in Shelby county, and elicited sorao little
discussion.
Mr. Murphy nnd others opposed the additional
salary proposed. .
.Mr. Mulloy favored the increase of pay, con
tending that the expenses incurred in the .Mem
phis District were greater than in other parts of
the Slate, especially in East Tennessee.
J'r. Simmcrly came to the rescue of that part
of the State, and remarked that, considering tho
recent history of each section. East Tennessee, if
any, should bo entitled to the greatest favors.
Memphis was doubtless entitled to a great many
things, but her crying want was a good strong
penitentiary.
Mr. llrandon was opposed to discrimination in
favor of Memphis Judges. If there is to be an
inrrcac of pay. let it be general in its operation.
General Smith remarked that he was in favor of
raising the pay of all the Judges, and would voto
accordingly when a bill would be introduced. Hut
as a Judge was to be appointed in Memphis, why
not commence by establishing his pay at. (1,000 per
annum.
The main question of non-concurring with tho
committee who reported in favor of the bill, with
certain amendments, was then put and lost by
ayes 27, noes 35.
On motion, the House adjourned until 10 o'clock
to-morrow morning.

History of Two Pnlntlns.
A London paper tells the following :
Upon the subject of painting, I will men
tion to you an anecdote which I heard re
lated by Ilollland, a celebrated landscape
composer, regarding two of the finest pic
tures which are in this or any other country ;
they arc the works of the immortal Claude.
A nobleman, whose name I now forget,
purchased them in Italy, and sent them
over to this country, directed to a friend,
with instructions for him to pay the duty
upon them, whicn amounted to 27 lis.,
and to preserve them carefully until his
return. These instructions the friend never
received ; and when the pictures were land
ed at Dover, nobody being there to make
any inquiries about them, they were seized
by the officers of the jiort for non-payment
of duty, and were put to public auction, as
is customary in these cases, for that purpose.
Strange to say, there was no one who
bad discernment enough to see the
merits of these stupendous productions,
and the pictures were fortunately drawn
in unsold, JE17 being the greatest oiler
for them, fciiortly after tins the nobleman
arrived in England, and instantly wrote to
his lriend about Ins property, lou may
imagine by the sequel what was his surprise
when his friend returned for answer that he
was entirely ignorant of such things exist
ing. The thought which struck him first
was to proceed to the landing place, Dover
and, after several inquiries, he at last found
his treasures thrown by in an old ware-room,
amidst a heap of confiscated rubbish. He
