The officer--Capt. Hunter, at Grenada,
Mississippi who sent the telegraphic warn

for hi assassination, sends word that he has,
arrested the snspccteu' party.
It is also announce4 that Gen. Thomas
ha ordered him to be brought to this city
for trial. The action of Gen. ThosiAs Is
perfectly proper, and if there be lega'i and
sufficient proof of the fact, the miscreant

of crime should be promptly punished.
But vre must be permitted to say that we

The New York Journal ofs Commerce says
tkat what the country needs is a distinct
drawing of the line between the supporters
oftle President and the supporters of the
Radical disunionits. It is no day for men
to.ausUin mere political gamblers, who have
no interest in tho great questions of the day
except to preserve their own power and dis
tribute the spoils of office. It is the duty of
every voter to demand of the candidato who
asks hit vote, " Will you sustain the princi
ples of the President's veto message, or will
you sustain tho doctrines which in that
message he txmdemns T"- The President, of
course, desires (he defeat of every candidate
who refuses t stand by him, and at this
time neglect is equivalent to refusal.
The Chicago Republican, (edited by Mr.
Danij late Assistant Secretary of War;), and
representing the decided Radical men of the
Northwest, thus opens its leading article on
Saturday. It is not worso than tho Chicago
Tribune, Washington CJironidc, New York
Tribune, and the Radical press generally:
"Br Y not Dsxkivep. Wo have no contro
versy with those honest souls who trek to console
themselves wlth'lho idea that the President hni
net abandoned his party and its principle. If
they can find comfort in the prolongation offuch

tranquility; nor indeed could any surhji'i uttcmpt
avail much. lie who ean think Mr. Jolnuor. a
Republican alter the events of the Inst fortnight,
must be endowed with a degree of trustfulness and
hopefulness which uotblug short of the licit trump
et could derange."
The Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune, writing of therirctimtanrca
attending the appearance of the President's
veto message, Bays :
"On Saturday and Sunday tho current reports
that a veto was impending, grow mora and more
positive. Still the calamity they portended was
too awful to secure them general credence."
This is a person absolutely gone mad. His
folly is equal to that of That!. Stevens.,
who trembled af an earthquake the other
day. The veto has not hurt any one. Tho
fiecdmen aro as well protected as they would
have been if the vetoed bill had become a
law. What is there too "awful" for con
contemplation in that?
Tnn dirty traduccw of Isham G. Harris
few in number, and generally interlopers
are circulating a rumor that his friends arc
making strong efforts with the Government
to necure his pardon, in order that he may
return to Tennessee. If the report was true,
it would be creditable to hifriend. But
so far from being true, the jv!5 and children

Perhaps not. We once heard of a persistent
office-seeker, like the Secretary, who re
ceived a letter from a hopeful son in Illinois,
urging his father, by all means, to immigrate
to that State, adding " mighty mean men
get office here."
Tnn Radicals in Congress very graciously
propose to declare Tcnncwca a State in the
Union! As she was admitted into the Union
in 1796, and has not been out since, unless
her act of secession was valid, it follows that
the Radical resolution cither recognizes the
legality and rightfulness of State secession,
or Is a work of entire supererogation.

On the Sth insU the following bill passed
the House of Representatives without de
bate. It will be noted that it establishes
nine circuits. At present there are ten. By
the death of Judge Catiion there was one
circuit with no Associate Justice. This bill
was inspired by a desire to prevent President
Johnsan from filling Judge Catoon's va
cancy. It was only six years ago that the
number of circuits was increased to ten on
account of the accumulated business. The
rea-sons nre stronger now than then, but the
political reasons overrule and lipncc the bill:

Saaltcrs, la generally in proportion o those
who own the houses in which they live. So
long as a man remains a tenant, he will not
manifest thai concern in the management of
municipal affairs which attaches to the own
rcrs of property. ' And the reason is obvious?1
In the one case, taxes and assessments press -directly
upon the property owner and make
him feel their full weight in theother, they
come in an indirect manner, and conse
quently do not teem so burdensome. Rents
may be raised on account of the imposition
of extraordinary taxes, and although the.
whole increase falls upon the.tenant,,. yetas
he pays by the month, the amount divided
by -twelve doeanot produce, such1 .an- un-j
pleasant impression upon him as it does
upon the landlord who is called upon to pay
tho whole bill at once. ' The tenant may for
get the owner will not and this remem
brance may, in the end, produce certain re-,
suits at the ballot-box.
Numerous plans have been suggested
having in view the use of capital in such a
manner, as tojecpmpensji the.ownersand at
the same time to increase the number of
property holders, especially in our large
cities and towns. One is, that capitalists, or
associations of such, shall build, neat-and;
commodious houses, finished in a plain and
substantial manner, and put them in posses;
sion of honest, hard-working tenants, who, "
in addition to, a, fair rent, shall pay a small
or larger amount per month, as theircircura
stances will admit, towards the ultimate
purchase of the property. Thus, if a man
who is now paying ten or fifteen or twenty
dollars rent, per month, can, by a little ad
ditional economy, raise those amounts five
or ten dollars each pay day, in the end he
will own his, house, and thus be free from
the perplexities that too often attend tho ap
proach of pay day. The dispensing with a
few luxuries and the abandonment of mere
unnecessary articles in his family, will easily
enable a man to increase the margin be
tween his receipts and expenses, and thus
constitute a monthly or quarterly fund to be
appropriated in the manner indicated.-
The Chicago Times, a joumal which has
given much attention to this question, in a
recent article upon the subject, says :
In a contract by which the occupant of a hon.e
has his rent assigned to tho liquidation of tho
purchase of the properly, there should be a care-
tul regard lor tuo rignis oi ootu parties, it would,
for instance, bo a manifest injustice, after a tenant
had paid say two-thirds of the value of the pro
perty, should bo bo summarily dispossessed
through a failure to pay his rent at the close of a
month or even of two or thrco months. Wo think
a contract should bo to drawn th&Ohe difficulty
of dispossessing a tenant should increase exactly
in proportion that do his payments. We can per
haps make this better understood by supposing
that a tenant occupies a house for which ho can
Eay in five years. During tho first year it might
o arranged that a failure to pay rent for Ono
month would involve a forfeiture of any right to
the property. During tho second year let three
months' failure; tho thirdlyear five months; tho
burth. seven months; and tho fifth year, nine
months' failure work a forfeiture. We suggest
one, three, five, soven and nine months' failure,
in a purchase requiring five years, not as the pro
per number of months in each ease, but as an il
lustration of a plan by which the tenant would
bo hedged witli protection strong in proportion to
The total price of ahouso and lot put into the
possession ot a tenant on this plan should npt ex-
cccd a fair value of the property, at a cash sale,
with the interest of this amount added toit. Tho
interest should be computed only for such times
and on such an amount as would actually exi-t.
Thus, a property which would sell for $2,500
should be valued under this plan at about $3,000,
and would bo paid for in six years at $500 per
annum. The interest on J2,500ono year would be
$175, and this added to the principal would make
$2,675. The $500 rent deducted from this
would lcaro tho amount upon which in
terest should be reckoned for the next year,
and so on decreasing each year the amount
at interest by the yearly payments. The
yearly interests on thesu annually decreasing
amounts, added together, would give tho amount'
which should be added to tho cash Value of tbe
property, and tho total wimld represent the value
at which the property should he turned over to
It is needless to add that if the tenant nt any
time shuuld chooso to anticipate his payments, or
increase their sixo, ho should be allowed to do so,
and these increased payments should in propor
tion to their frequency and ntnounts, lower the
value of the property.
The Board of Real Estate Brokers in
Chicago have considered this plan and given
it their unanimous approval, and several
property holders and capitalists in that city
have signified their intention of aiding in the
movement. We have abundant capital in
this city, and our mechanics and traders and
working men need homes. Will not the
owners of unimproved property and men of
capital join in some Mich a system as that
about to be inaugurated in Chicago? The
city, the capitalists and those wishing dwel
lings, would all be "benefited by such an ar
rangement. The details of the Chicago plan
may be imperfect, but that some such a sys
tem could be made to work advantageously
there is no doubt. The subject is one of im
mense importance to tho growth and pros
perity of the city, as well as tho comfort of

duly elected, then we see nothing very bold
in the suggestion. The premises, however,
must first be conceded.
In He Xut a 3Inn and n Urothcr?
In a late debate upon citizenship, in the
House of Representatives, at Washington,
one of the Republican members of Congress
from California thus expressed himself:
"Mr. Higby The Chinese are nothing
but a pagan race. They are an enigma to
me, although I have lived among them 15
years. You cannot make citizens of them ;
they do not learn the language of the coun
try.' They even dig up their dead, after
they have decayed in their graves, strip the
flesh off the bones, and transport the bones
back to China. They bring their wooden
gods with them, and kneel down and worship
them. If the Chinese do ' hot propacratc in
this country (and a virtuous woman is the
exception nnu not the rule among them;
you cannot make citizens of them."
Yet all the arguments that applyfor necrro
citizenship embrace the Chinese as well. Is
not John Chinanman as much -Mr. Sumner's
man and brother as Cuffeo the African,
whose cultivation is far inferior to that of
the Chinese? If the negro is to vote on the
strength of his natural right, so must the
The suit of James Hickman, of Hunts
ville, Ala., against W. B. Bate, late Major
General of the Confederate army, for dama
ges set at 25,000, on account, of arrest at
Huntsvilic, Ala., under orders from General
Bragg, in December 1802, is now pending in
the courts at Nashville. The circumstances
of his arrest arc substantially these: Hick
man, alleged to be a blockade runner, in vl
olation of the orders of the Commander-in-
chief of thcCon'federate army was arrested
on the information of citizens of his own
town. He was tried on this charge and ac
quitted. Subsequently he was again arrest
ed, on a presentation of a Huntsville grand
jury, for treason to the Confederate States.
Gen. Bate prosecuted the case, and ex-Confederate
Secretary of War, L. Pope Walker,
defended. At the close of the revolution
ary struggle, Hickman sued out an altach
incntwn the property of General Bate, to
cover $23,000 worth of damages. This case
is a peculiar one, involving many nice points
of law, and will most probably bo taken be
fore the Supreme Court for final decision. It
would be singularly strange if General Bate,
being a paroled soldier, is to suffer damages
for carrying out an order from his superior,
General Bragg, when the same parole pro
tects the originator of the order. Memphis

The New York Sm of the 5th notes tkat
the previe3 week, the decline in wholesale
prices was greater than in any weckuice
the present downwardmovement commenced .
"Standard domestic manufaturcs, in the dry
goods market, recededin price about twenty per
een-, and the average reduction in imported
goods was probably not J ess than twenty-fivQ.pcr,
'cent. Even at theso" reduced rates, sales" wen
very meagre, and it is Quito probable that the de
cline will continue during the present week. In
other blanches of trade tnero has also been a ma
terial reduction in prices, although the per cent
age of docliaa has not been so uniform as in tho
dry goods market; -it is evident that prices are
now rapidly gravitating toward real value"

their arms when discharged. It .'is urged,
with great-reason, that the letting loose of
so large a body of armed blacks upon the
community can only lead to disorder and
violence, riot and bloodshed.

Thad. Stevens has presented a bill pro

So if the President should find an officer

DR. L. L. COLEMAN
AMONGST the many complimentary no
tice given un by the preiw of tht8 city, we
know of none which we deem an coming
with to much heartfelt sincerity, aa the fol-
owing from the Nashville Daily Union :
"At a oerlod like the present, when our city Is
fillled to overflowing with a transient popula
tion, and diseases provail to an extent hitherto
undreamt of. it is croDer that the means of eura
should be of ready access, and that those imme
diately interested should hare information which
will lead tnem to avail tnemseives or competent
medical advice. Men who have been educated in
the best schools of the profession of medicine, and
been successful in a praetieo of many years, are
surely worthy of confidence; if they have gtrtn
their attention exclusively to one branch of the
profession, and mad themselve matters of it,
they bare still more right t e.prct support, more
particularly if tbey have atfurded proof of their
ability to cure. To this Utter etas belongs DR.
L. L. COLKMAN, who, in bis specialty, has been
a benefactor to the afilieted. and mar ever be re
lied on as a safe and sure physician."
