It whh supposed that under the cir

cept the resignation of the''"reaeurcr; but
refer the matter to the LegiRlature, which
will be in session in short a period,
when that lody could elect his predeces-
sr and. take sueji action in tbe prcmises
as might be necessary. 'Hie Code pro
v4de in section 227:
"Whenever Ihe office of Treasurer be
comes vacant by death, resignation, or
otherwise, during the recess of the General
Assembly, the Governor shall immediately
fill it, by appointing some person qualified
to discharge its duties. And he shall, be
fore he enters upon the duties of the office,
enter into lxnds with such sureties as shall
be annroved bv the Governor, iu the pen
ally of one hundred thousand dollars ; and
he shall take the same oath, penormaii
Ihe duties, and be liable to the same penal
tics, and receive the same compensation as
the Treasurer' appointed by the General
It was hardly contemplated when this
section was enacted that a Trensurer
would resign during a brief recess of the
Legislature, but the Governor having ac
cepted Dr. Stanford's resignation, will of
course appoint his successor, and the ap
pointee may, and we presume will hold
on for the remainder of the term. Had
the Governor referred tke matter of ac
ceptance and settlement to the Logisla
ture, which will bcin session in the course
of twenty days, the whole responsibility
would bare boon placed where it properly
belongs. The Code provides that "pre
vious to the election of Treasurer, the
Legislature shall carefully esamino the
accounts and vouchers and settle with the
incumbent" It is, true, tiie Code also
provides that tho Comptroller shall "settle
the accounts of a deceased, resigned, or
removed Treasurer." Hoar in mind, it is
the Comptroller and no ofhr'persnn who
is to make this settlement with tho Trea'
surer. Now the Comptroller has not been
in Nashville for months, ami it is not at
nil likely that he will be hero until after
the Legislature meete, if4hen, for his
health is such, we hear, as to forbid his
oomine to the citv. How then is this
settlement to be made and the proper
evidence thereof executed in the alienee

WHAT I1KCOMF-S Or THE WHISKY 7
The I'nited States census for 1S60 re
ported ninety million gallons of whisky
as the product of that year. The last re
port of the Revenue Commissioner ex
hibits only ton million gallons as the
yield of the fiscal year last past What
has become of the ninety million gallon
supply of 1S60V Did wo drink less in
1865-6 than wo did in 'GO? Was there
suoh a deficiency of demand in such def
lectable years as '61, '02, '63 and '61, as
to cause the manufacture to fall off eighty
million gallons? Have we "abjured
sack," and become a grand National
Temperance Society? Nono of tliese
things no, net one. There has, been as
much whisky made and drank in each ef
the last six years as at any previous time.
The discrepancy is due to the enormous
tax upon distilled spirits. The New
York Trihune estimate that the revenue
office has been defrauded of one hundred
million dollars or ,ore by incorrect re
turns in the one artwle f whisky. Cur
sapient lawmaker bt iht of that great
principle iu political econy which
teaches that no article will bear a tax ex
ceeding the cost of its manufacture The
tax 'on whisky is from Jiv to ten time be
yond this standard The temptation to
inanuractiirws and tax officers is too
great to lie resisted. If the tax lavied
had been frowi thirty to fifty cents per
gallon, instead of $2 00, the iwsjrging
revenue would have ben jssanlar; and i
the disregard of law and dishonpst art?-;
fice to avoid it wohM hve been prevent

trivance to curtail tle vice of intemper- j

will be so volumninons that an increased

New York, Dec. 23. Details of the
los3 of the steamer Commodore, show that
those on board made a very narrow escape.
Shortly after the commencemeut of the
cale. which was terrific, she broached to,
that is, the wind came so heavy she refused
to obey her helm, and could not be kept
on her course. At this time her bulwarks
were stove in, the forward decks washed off
and her smoke pipes fell. The excitement
at this time had become intense, and all at
tempted to become resigned to their fate,
but weary countenances depicted utter de
spair, many beine engaged in prayer, and a
few lost their self possession. Inside of
the vessel the stoves tsppled, and it was by
the utmost efforts of the crew and others,
that the vessel was protected from burning
up. There was an alarm of fire, but. the
flames were extinguished. At 10 o clock
the fires were all put out, and the danger
from that source avoided. For two hours
the vessel drifted at the mercy of the waves,
the captain and pilot being successful only
in keeping her headed nearly south, the
-tlood tide setting her toward Liong island
shore. At 2 A. jr. Morton's .Point was
made. The cale continued without abate
ment. she Eradually drifted into a little
bay about 2 miles west of Horton's Point,
light anchors were then dropped at about
two fathoms of water, a part of her cargo
had been thrown overboard, the pumps
were kept constantly at work, at the same
time two lines of bailers were formed and
did admirable service. In this condition
the boat lay until daylight when the water
gained so rapidly that it was decided to
beach the vessel, which was done most
successfully. The gale soon became still
more ferocious, if such were possible, the
life boats were lowered and one was finally
landed in the breakers, soon a line was got
ashore, the boats were manned and con
tiolled until several loads of passengers
comprising the whole, were safely landed

T OYAL OWNERS OF SLAVES WHO
XJ enlisted in the U. S. Army are entitled to
THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS compensation
for each and every one. Tho Board appointed
by the Secretary of War to examine and report
to Washington upon this class of claims is at
present in Nashville, and all persons having
claims of this character would consult their own
interest by oalling on mo at my office. No. 33
Cedarstreet,(upsta!rs,)or by communicating with
me by mail. Were it ueceesary, I could give a
long list of some of tho first men of tho nation
as references, but I take it that I am well enongh
known in the State, and my success in prose
cuting claims against the U. S. Government is
too well established to need .any other endorsers
than the hundreds of officers, soldiers and citi
tens of the State whose claims I have prosecuted
to a successful settlement. I might, however,
mention the fact that having been connected
with the organization of colored troops in this
State, and being personally acquainted with
nearly all the otScers ef colored regiments in
this Department, and having been engaged
for the last nineteen months in collecting Back
Pay, Bounty and. Pension for the soldiers
themselves, and being-in daily-cpmmunication
with thousands of, them, my facilities for tr&cing
out the company and-rcgiment into which they
enlisted are certainly as good, if not better,
than those of any other parties engaged In the
As for ray facilities for prosecuting these
claims at Washington, I flatter myself that none
I notice that some Agents are charging 25 per
cent, and others 15 per cent, foes for prosecuting
these claims, but I am of the opinion that they
may be prosecuted fer less, and would suggest 10
percent. .Ana in connection witn this wiuld
beg leave, to state that I consider this per cent
age remarkably low, but as I am permanently
located here, and have other business to attend
to at tho came time, I Can afford to attend to
this business for less than some others.
I would bo pleased to open a correspondence
with agents and attorneys throughout this State,
and will bo haouv to enter into arranpemrnts
with them to furnish blanks and all necessary
Claims against the Government, of officers,
oitizens and soldiers, promptly attended to.
Particular attention paid to soldiers' claims

Colored soldiers are now virtually on the samo

of pay and bounty which have been denied them
in the past, .in distinction from white soldiers,
may now oe recovered.
All parties having claim.? in my hands fur col
lection are requested to call and see mc, or write
