"What shall be done with the Banks of
Tennessee ?' Was a question which' re
ceived a good deal of consideration several
years ago. Another question of equal im
port, perhaps greater import, now comes
np What of the Bank of Tennessee?
When the bank was brought back from the
South agreat deal of anxiety was manifest
ed to know its condition, and the proba
bility as'to what could be realized oul of its
assets. Perhaps the clearest exposition up
on these points is to be found in the report
of Mr. S. Watson, President and Trustee of
the Bank, recently submitted to the Gov
ernor, and by him transmitted to theLegie

Athens branch of this bank. Tho receipt do.es
not relieve Mr. Cleagc, oranyothcr party, HOta:
any other further liability. This transaction was
a very favorable one for the bank, and it has
acsumed, without hesitation, tho responsibility
of Gov. Brownlow's act.
"Tho Bank of Tennessee commenced the col
lection of its debts many years after other banks
add creditors had been collecting their dfcbwf
and also when tho condition of the country was
very unfavorable for payment. It has also beca
met with a decision of the Courts inTegordto
Confederate money, that may interfere seriously
with its collections. With these difficulties to
contend with, we havo thought it for tho best
interests of the bank, to deal liberally with its
debtors, employing all persuasive arguments ic
the collection of its debts, and resorting as
little as possible to coercive measures. And we
think that it is in consoquence of this policy,
that debtors, in that' class of cases, where they
aro released from payment by virtue of judicial
derisions, have almost universally manifested a
willingness to pay wnat was tno value 01 me

concession on a dull and droojping marked when
tho stagnation in trade is owing to the fact that
no one wants tpo goous lor any purpose, would
only serve, to ainrrav&to thb difficulty, and Mn
settle the rates without increasing the business.
The wdolen manufacturers have proposed and
partially arranged for a concerted, short-time
movement, commencing at once. This is ostensi
bly on accountof- thepver-stock in this market
of many classes of woolen goods, tho shortening
of the production being the best remedy against
