KitKKtiUKxa Boiie il'. On Monday night. Gen.
Fisk left this city for I.nuisvillo, accompanied by
Chaplain Lawrence, .fudgo of tho Freedmens'
Cotir!, for the piirpoo of settling affairs pertain
ing to this Iliiroiu in Kentucky, Vt'o undur'tnad
that they will bo absent about ten days. vi."itina
Lexington, Fmnkfurt, nnd other places.
Tho Miirfreeiboro Monitor, coiunienling on af
fairs connected with this Hurra unsays: M'o re
Iiublieh a law recently iiaved by tho Legirlaturo
of Alabama, which gives to the negro the right of
suit ami of trtsliinony in all riics to which ho may
bo a pnrtj jut such a law a wo havo herctoforo
advocated in thooolimmi of tho Monitor. If every
Smthern Stnto had taken such action promptly
and 111 good faith, il would havo hclpjyl the Pres
ident in his plan of reconstruction, ami furilitatud
tho reception of inenibors cJoctol to Congress from
the Southern States.
It is a point to which sooner or later the South
ern Statei will have to como tho longer it is pot
poned the greater tho danger, that greater conces
sion will have to be mado negro suffrnso for in
rtanco will bo tho next Wnr qua mm.
Wo hope that tho Tenneseo I,oxi.lnture when It
ro acinlle after tho ClirHmas holidays, will
revise iti action in tho prcmisos and p.is a bill
riunlar to thoono pawed by the Legirlaturo of
Alabami securing to tho iiogro,a.i a freed man.hls
right of aetion nnd testimony in defenco of his
piT..in nnd jtroperly. Any intelligent Southern
man who iiposes such action is cither a fanntlo
carried away .by prejudico and oblivious of the
events which have tranpircd within tho last four
years. ir u demngnguo who, for tho purposo of
curryint favor with .thoso whoo prejudices ho
would loment to their own undoing, would sacri
fice frind. country, everything, for tho snko of
place nnd popularity. Tho pcoplo havo suffered -J
enough by surrendering thomselvcOntoitho hands
of such individuals. It is time that'they wero be
ginning to think nnd net for thcnKclrc. If re
publican institution 'are to be maintained, tho
people of the United States mut forego tho wor
Fhip of tho golden r -If the nlmighty dollar, long
enough to inform themselves on tho political
luetions of the day they must summon courago
enough to think and act for tlicnnelvp, "and not
bo led by any cro-road politician who, to servo
hi own nnd his party's purpoe, would kindly
take them in charge.
To do this.howcver.they will have to open their
purses a littlo subscribe for one or moro news
papers and not get their news second hand from
the party politician referred to above who will
alwrvs have on hand, tho sort of news demanded
by the emergency of the occasion.
To illustrate: n candidate for office at this time,
according to the neighborhood ho might bo in, or
man bo w endeavoring to influence, wonld
cither condemn Andrew Johnson as n miserable
demagogue who never bad an honest impulse, or
applaud him to tho echo, as n pure and immacu
late patriot he would rofcr to facts too to sustain
cither position. M'o would repeat in conclusion,
thnt it is I""" tl't the people of tho I'nited
Slates, if they would preserve their own liberties
and band down to posterity free- institutions un
impaired, should do their own reading, their own
thinking, ami tbeir own voting.
Invrkane ok Crime, Although tho condition of
affair in Nashville, and other ciliev in the State
is certainly bad enough, it it nevertheless but
little worse than thatofsoiuo other localities. Tho
recent disbanding of Urge armies ha more or less
dciiiorlied ;tho wholo country. Yet, our condi
tion is not near as lid as that of wine oIlieiK-oun-tnes
that hao been placed in circumstances very
similar to our own. Vie take the following from
the Lynchburg (W)'iiWien. which may give
roine ilea of the stale of eioty in that section :
" Bobberie are becoming more frequent a the
holiday approach. The depredators a.o growing
holder ill tbeir rasca.litj and seem Item on creat
ing a sort of high carnital of eriiuein lieu of their
old-time merry-making". The police will have to
j.crforni their duty with redoubted vigilance, if
they succeed in preventing a state of uneertnintv
nnd confusion which may iKwsibly result in actus'!
nd widr-fpread jiolenee. It would not be un
wise to rncroase tho city guard to an extent suf
ficient to eflectuallf rupprem these nightiy out
rages, and prcparptfor all iwssiblllties."
It is to be hoped that thi condition of affairs,
throughout our eelirc land, may soon become
changed for the better. Much of thi lawlwnc
j roceed fnmi ignorance and imperfect education
in regard to the real duties of eitiiens and rom
iiiiinities. By imparling proper instruction n
thi sul Joel In our Institution of learning, as well
as by wm-c and w holcxxmie legislation, thwc things
may in limo bo corrected and a moro healthy
rptrit infused into ot try community in the land.

tho intention of the I'oliccJCommitloc, inconiunc

Mr. Crcighton took tho chair, and President
Cheatham remarked, that ho regarded it as a mat

that a hospital should bo established, but that tho

He was in favor of expending $150,000 on tho

Ho wa aware that the taxo wero heavy, but they
wero not as heavy ns thc taxes in Charleston, At

UAlLRosii Mattkrs.'-A great deal ofineonven-
ienco i caused the officers of railroads connecting
with tho Western X Atlantic road, in consequence
of the negligence of that company in transporting
freight from Chattanooga. The Nashville A Chat
yinooga road suffers greatly from this cause, 'and
the interests of otber'railroads connected with it
suffer also. We learn that freight sometime. re
main in ("hattnnnoga for three or four weeks,
without any attentiou whatover. A little, energy
displayed in thi matter, on the part of tho road
referred to. would be Of great advantage to more
than one railroad company. Not only do thr

"When, at last, the'prcss around him les

tnose.strange coincidences which help to in
vest our lives with a tinge of the mysterious
and awful, and which makes us superstitious.
One of his first utterances to me was a star
tliug description of what Tom .Cbrwin wan
to be in twenty-five minutes after its utter
ance. It was this : lie said; 'Yon are more
bald than when I saw you last, the ilay be
fore I sailed for Mexico.' I said, 'Yes.' lie
said, with thc semi-solemn, semi-comical
face which has become historical, 'Hut, then,
Julius Casar was bald.' I said, 'But Caar

manner, and said: 'Twenty years ago, I saw
a man fall in apparently unconscious, parol-
ysis, when in the midst of excited discourse, j
He was carried out by his friends in this
condition, and his first act of consciousness j
was to utter thc words you have just said ;

SrECULATIOX in Cottox Goods. The
history of some cotton transactions, if writ

Probably few cases would be followed so
clearly as ono wa heard yesterday. The
time commences with the first year of the

one hundred bales of sheeting at eight cents
a yard 100,000 yards in all, costing $3,000.
n liiiiii a year aucrwarus, 1111s ioi was sold
lor lorty cents a yard, thereby yielding
profit of $23,000. Party number two held
it for another rise, and sold out in another
year at sixty cents a yard, realizing a profit
,QfS20,000. Party number three held on a
wWle, and then sold oiit at sixty-two cents,
