The death of this old and,. esteemed citi
zen, which has been expected for many
weeks, occurred at his residence on the
evening tJf Mbc'day, and his remains will
be consigned to the tomb to-day. The event
brings grief to a large family circle, and
deep regret to an cxtcuslvo circle of ac
quaintances, and is a public loss. His ill
ness disease of the heart was of a pecu
liarly distressing character, but was borne
with the 'fortitude and calmness which
characterized him in health, and with pious
resignation to the inevitable result. Mr,
Johnson was a nativo of North Carolina,
but was for a long time a citizen of Colum
bia, in this State, engaged in mercantile
pursuits. He has been a citizen of
Nashville "for a quarter of a cen
tury, "employed actively in the concerns
of life until within the past few months.
He was liberal, public spirited and up
right in his conduct, and enjoyed largely
the confidence and respect of jiis fellow
citizens. He held clear and decided views
on public matters, and was frank and un
reserved in their expression ; and though
not officially involved in the late civil
trouble, his well-known position in the
community brought to him the consequen
ces of the failure of tho cause in which he
sympathized. Ho died without enemies,
however, for he was antlemau tinder alt
circumtances, nnd his decease if an event
which causes universal regret. His amity j
have the cordial sympathy of the commu
nity in their deep bereavment.

THE BEATER BEATEJT.

Torrlblo "Ku-KIux" Pcnl wltli n-'
A gentleman from Lincoln county recent
ly, tells us the following as happening in,
or near Fayettcvillc one night daring the'
,pasi week. Perhaps thef-ict that the-"victim"
was not a "loil" nun may serve to
euchre (he scoundrels 'who manufacture
false stories for tho Kadical journals out ot
a number one political sensational. A man
who had served four years through .the
'.Confederate army, and 14 -'aSey moiir an&
Blair man, although he is a scoundrel and
cowardly rascal of thodeepest dyp, was mar
ried about a year since to a very respecta
ble younggirl of the county. Two months
since saw the resnlt of the union in the per"
son of a fine large child, iTegularavhoppcr.
Several days ago the hitherto contented
husband and father went home in a beastly
state of intoxication, and began swearing,
curbing, and abusing his wife ,10 a shocking
manner. His mother-ln-layr interceded in
behalf of her daughter, who had not yet
arisen from her bed of confinement. The
unprincipled Hccundrel, indignant at what
lit. rn 1 1 Imr " nilllinr. liar tnntifli in "
ejzed the old Iady,iaud'with Jil tJSwerful
strength,, liurled her against a oed-pbTt,
breaking throe of her rib, and otherwise
severely injuring her. Ho next to6k tbe
tttle child by its less and swung it with
fearful rapidity through the air, asking his
wife if the didn't want to nee -iu'brains
dashed" out. After this he jerked his" poor
sick wife out of bed, and gaye her. a severe
seating with a large hickory- pole.
Some nights after that a party of armed
and masked horsemen, undoubtedly riiem
bewof the terrific Ku-KIux Jvlan, rpda up
to the door of this scoundrel, and calling
him oat, administered such n severe caati
gation as has not been Keen in those parts
for many days. 1 hey fairly larruped the
voutiE man, and made htm promise to. go
next Hay to tho town and beg, the paruon j
of his outraged and helpless wire on bequea
knees. Next day he went to the city, and
in presence of a largo number of persons,
sought her pardon. That's the ,maiuier in
winch they deal with fuch fellows,ana
that's the way it should be done.

In Ho Nclon of Uio Aqiititlc U'nffKletntV?
It ought Jong ago to have been settled
that the musquito, that wicked, buzzing,
biting, little torment that has so often
brought the best of us to the scratch, and
Jeliod profanity lo do it justice, is really
ho wifesler lor wagglcMil) of the rain
water barrel, the cistern, the puddle, and
Ihe iriarsh. - We say this ought lo be well
understood, for if man is ever to be rid of
this last relic of tho Egyptian plagues, he
must nip the evil in the bud. lie must
dcclaro war on the wiggler, the heretofore
'unmolested instrument of all -our misijrie-v.
the biting and scratching line. The
wipgler must he exterminated or there can
be no pence. If worst comw to worst, the
cry middle in which he so defiantly Haps
his forked tail must ho turned to blood,
nnd tho delorous marsh fro); must King his
requiem. There was'n ge.tlcm.ni in the ci. a day
or two since who came from a pait of the
conntry whuro wigglors moRt do congregate
where the marshes and stagnant water
fairly "move" with them, and yettlus gen
tleman alleged lhat such a thirg as a mus-
iiiilo had never been seen in his section ;
that ho had never seen a miisqiuto until
he had seen the Ohio river. He denied
the reputed origin of the musquito in loto.
To convince him, a gentleman connected
with the Courier ollico tried an experiment.
Procuring a small vial half filled with
water, he placed therein threo or four, of
the common wigglers lhat may be seen in
soft water almost anywhere. Carefully
sealing the vial he let it eland for a night.
In tho morning a clean, lull-developed min
im to was hying about in the since ab, 'e
the water, while a sc.y shell or skin like
whatmight bo that of an almost incon
ceivably small snake lay upon the surface.
One of the wigglers had surely shufiled ah"
his coil, for there had been no musquito
there tho night previous.
Naturalists say that mu?quitoc aro a de
cidedly mixed set, so far as lincago goes,
and few or none have attempted to pedigree
them, getting over that point as, hastily as
losaihlc, and bclogging tho reader with
earned allusions to the proboscis, the palpi,
and other appendages. They say the larva;
of mu?quitoeaaro the well-known wigglers.

tail, and stands erect, like a mast, in the
pupa shell-boats, it extricates tho front
pair of legs, and places them for support on
the surface of the water. The heavy and
wet wings are now unfolded, that the sun
and air may dry them ; this effected, the
danger is over, and tho other legs are
drawn forth and extended ou the edge of
tho pupa case, tho body is stretched o;u,

Yesterday morning, when thestreata were
crowded with people going fo their respect
ive places of business, a country cart, with
big high tieela and a couple of' ''culled
casaes" perched on tho seat, halted in front
of the Postoffice for a few momenta to dis

thinking that a quaff at his fount, would be
of benefit to his mules hi p. He waade

partly at the State's expenso and partly by
faluntary private contributions. Recently,
Mr. Henry Schajller, musical director, has
been employed 4o give, a series of concerts

He hr.a been fortunato enough to Becure as

respects a splendid affair.
Feeling the Screws. The street rail-
oad.companies, -principally Northern men
of energy and enterprise, are circulating
petitions to have the City Council relieve
them, or rather sparo them the impost,
which the tajf. bill of thisyear provides over
-that of last. iThey say they arc taxed now
a& much as they ought to be. Tho same
cpmplaint comes up from all the small
pppertyj holders'in tho Ninth, Tenth and
Seventh Wards ; and from the struggling
properly holders in the city who have half
their houses empty, besides they hate to
pay the school, State, county and corpora
tion faxes same as others.
Coercion. A certain party of dark
ISntera politicians, we learn, are holding"
midnight conclaves in various parts of the
cjty. The first condition to the privilege
of attending at thfege meetings ia to take arj
oath upon a large book with a death's head
and crossed daggers underneath to support
in the first place, , Aldcn for Mayor, and
then some disreputable, unprincipled beg
gnr for" Alderman. When tho oath is
liken they all enter Jnto "secret session"
and regulate to their cntiro satisfaction how
things are to he managed in the city, and
how much of the spoils each one is entitled
to. Tho division of the plunder, it is said
ii regulated according to the unprincipled
libldncss nnd unscrupulous villainy of the
iiartics. The star chamber proceedings are
J'omied aud Plundered. William
Houston says he was in Bill Page'd house
on Gay .street, where there is beer Bold

was etui more- unfortunate, for yesterday
morning when he went to clean his win

Mr. Williams moved that 143 conies of each
report be printed.
Mr. Thornburg, of Jefferson, moved in lieu,
that the renort of tho maiority bo adopted. Car
Mr., Williams moved to print both reports.
Mr. Thompson moved in lieu, that only hn
majority report bo printed.
; Mr. Williams Jlr. opoaicerr Gentlemen
whoso enthusiasm runs away with thoir judg
ment need not try- to gag- discussion by cries
of "Gontleraenl " By a refusal to print Iho
minority roport, in what nttitudo do wo placo
ourselves? That of fear to hear both sides of
tho question : and certainly it-will look like wo
are cowardly in thus failing to meet investiga
tion. A wiso man has truly said : " ho who wilt
not reason is a bigot, ho who cannot is a fool,
and he wbo dares not is a slave'" And shall
wo placo ourselves by our action in either posi
tion? For my oart I wish to investizato tbis
subject in tho spirit of a statcmon, and not in
tno spirit ot a partisan, liot those who fear tho
light of truth, refuse to print tho minority ro
port, and the record of our Journal will hand
their tnarnos to our constituents and to pos
terity. Mr- Stone thought that tho If ouse had already
seen enough of such documents or reports.
Air. Jlynatt obicctcd to being taxed to print
correspondence that had already been spread
broadcast over tho country.
Mr. Ho3snn'; What ohifttinn 1int Tnv.n1tAnfruA
(Mr. Thompson) to the minority roport? iocs,
ho fear that it will baalo his favorito
measure? What wo want is light, all tho in
formation that wo. can obtain on this vital sub
ject. It is only by such moans that wo can
have united and intelligent action.
Mr. Hrilor contended that tho minority report
Was only a defenso of laws passed at tho lost
session. Thoso laws ho believed to bo equal in
every respect toi tho emergency, if properly en
forced. A call for the prorions quostion was sustained
Mr. Thompson desired to withdrawhis motion,
but tho Speaker decided that it could not bo
withdrawn, as tho demand for tho provious
question had been sustained. Tho motion was
r. Williams moved to present tho minority
Air, Hacker : Tho report is, as I understand it,
mndo up of correspondence which has been ex
tensively published, and of some notions which
anncar to be peculiar to the trentlonan from
Shelby. Tho calliug out of tho militia has been
the all important quostion from tho day w
were first cnllod together, and I do not presume
that thcro is a member who has not made up
his mind on tho Bubjoct. For what purpose,
then, has this minority report been presented?
I venturo to say that tho report is net put for
ward in tho intcrost of tho great Republicaa
party who have mado up their minds that the
laws must and shall bo obeyed.
Mr. Rvdor: Who nassed tho laws of Inst sua
sion, mentioned in tho minority roport? Was it
not tho Republican party?
Air. llacKcr: xos,i. admit that.
Mr. Rnder: Woll. I onlv iirosftntnd tn thn
IIouso its own child.
Mr. Hacker: Tho signs of tho time3 were not
as black and potentiou3 tbon as they aro now.
The laws then passed havo not boen fonnd lo
tneot tho emergency. If thoy wcro sufficient,
why do wo have thoso ropcatod outrages ondeo
fonsolcss citizens? Why do theso ref'ugocscom
flocking Into tho city? It was but a few nights
ago thatsomo of tho Southorn chivalry rodo
into Franklin and murdered two inoffonding
citizens in cold blood.
; How could such stato of affairs exist if tho
present laws suffico for tho protection of Union
mon ? Why didn't tho Sheriff of Franklin, when
that brutal outrage was committed, suppress
tho Insurrection? It was becauso ho was power
less to enforce tho laws, as aro all tho civil au
thorities as far as the county polico law session
is concerned. I am not willing that my con
stituents shall bo taxed to pay ono cent to cir
culate such a politicaldocnment as tho minority
report, its only eueci win bo to act as n
sootno" to tne uoocisoi inornate.
Air. Caele raised tho point of order that ihn
adoption of Mr. Thompson's motion practically
decided against tho printing of the minority report-
The Sneaker overruled the tiointof order, nnd
Mr. Caglo took an appeal, resulting in tho Chair
Jeing sustained by a voto 31 to
Air. i-rosser wonia navo Deen willing enough,
under ordinary circumstances, to have thero
port printed, but no possible good could now bo
effected by such action on tho part of the ITmisn.
Any further delay wns exceedingly objectiona

tion on tho table, but yielded to
Mr. Rvdor. who vindicated himself ncainst
JMr. Hacker's misinterpretation of his motives in
making tho report. 110 reiterated ins bciiet
that the laws passed at tno- last session would,
if properly executed, securo peaco aud amplo

The New York Pasi of tho afternoon of
the 22(1 inst. says :
"The money market ia abundantly sup
plied. Call' loans on government bonds
range from 34 per cent., thegreater num
ber being at the latter figure: On railway
and miscellaneous collaterals 45 per cent,
is paid. There is an indisposition on
the part of the banks to loan at even
the highest rates on collaterals composed
entirely of the shares of the more specnla
iivc roads dealt in at the Stock Exchange.
Discounts are generally dull, although there
is a fair inquiry for prime short paper, sixty
days and under, which is done at G per cent.
The nominal rates for paper running from
iwo to four months, in which there is very
jittle doing, are from 6h to 7 per cent."
Reports aro coming from New York of
unfavorable hank statements. This in the
conclusion frbm'a Wall street point of view.
It means that the money which has accumu
lated in the New York banks, from all parts
of the country, is needed for legitimate
business purposes to move the crops and
is thcreforo being withdrawn. From this
standpoint the bank statements look favor
able. The deposits in the New York hanks
on the 14th inst. were $228,104,807, against
5199,403,705 the corresponding date last.
yearj when there wad an excess na compared'
with August, 1SGG. There is no more
money 'not bo much in the cotiutry.now,
as in 18G7; yet, we find more in New York
and at other commercial centers. This Is
linraislable evidence of. dullness, in all in
dustrial pursuits, and this dullness ha? re
sulted from crop failures. W.e need not
slop to show how theso failures necessarily
affects business unfavorahlyi Our agricul
tural interests underlie all others, and
when these aro depressed general prostra
tion follows in all branches of business.
This prostration diminishes tho demand (Hp
money. The chief function of the,)ater fa
to settle 'the exchanges, and as the hbsiness
diminishes there is less us for money, and
hence, its accumulation. The coilntry hav
ing had three years of deficient crops', has
had a depression in trade. Thiis fras now
been passed through says the Cincinnati
QattUe, and we are just entering upon a
period of good crops. The first product of
the harvest of 1 808 is just now beginning
to come to market, and coming, as it does,
upon almost empty granaries', high prices
are commanded. The yield of wheat, for
example, milking filll allowance for after
reports in regard to the quality of the grain,
is double what ifwas last year, orjny twelve
or fifteen bushels to the acre. Notwith
standing, 5tha pricS ia only tfft nf r cen t
lower tlian in lofe Oats, wflh a very
heavy yield', is nearly as high as ft was last
year. Corn, with an extraordinary crop
in prosped, is well up to last yoar'a prlcaC
Of course the fulnre of prices will lie gov
erned largely by the foreign demand, but
or the present we have large eropj, high
prices and pretty free movement of grain.
Thin calls for money, and hence -we find
currency flowing from the com merclal cen
ten to the interior. Thus it ia becoming
useful. This money will soon find its way
lock to the cities, through (he regular chan
nels, having firaT discharged the obligations
of tho farmer to the country merchant, and
of the latter lo the city jobbem. Thus we
arc having those movements whieli preceda
a revival of business, and hence Ihe distri
bution of currency, which causes what are
called unfavorable liank statement, is an
encouraging indication. This withdrawal
of unemployed capital for use where it is
needed, foreshadows and insures business
for the merchants and the manufacturers
arfd for railroads ; for everybody, in fine,
who is in business.
GENERAL - MARKETS.
2TJL8H7XUUC, Tuesday, August 25.
Business during the week ending last
evening was dull. The cotton trade has
come a pause foe want of stock: The de
mand for wheat continues good, but holders
are" asking more than purchasers arc in
clined to ive, and, as a consequence, the
jaiiy sales have fallen ofi, l esteedaj tho
"market was decidedly dull and prices de
cling. But little was done in corn, the de
mand having fallen olT, Southern markets
being generally overstocked. There was
less activity in bacon, and prices were tend
ing downward, though there wai no nuota-
Cotton. The stock on hand is less than
100 balesj 'and we hear of no transactions.
Some 17 hales wero shipped yesterday.

Corn. The receipts of this grain by rail
'from Tennessee continue) large, and price
during the week havo ruled in favorof the
buyer. The demand has been restricted,
and in the face of an abundant crop pur
chasers operate with caution. We note
sales of mixed white at about $1 15 per
bushol, weight, hagi included, by the car
load from tbe depot, and up to $1 20 per
bushel in a jobbing way. Sales tooic place
yesterday at $1 13 per bushel, weight, for
white mixed Tennesnee; by the car load
from the depot.
