The new iaper starts out under
very favorable auspices and will be a
success financially. Its politics are
execrably Democratic and in this re
ganl it will be on the losing side by
wise measnre. Without in any meas
ure cii'lornino the politics of either
paper, we will say that as first, class
newspapers tliey'wcre not surpassed
in an- city, of a like population, i:i
the land. They were wide awake ami
enterprising in the highest decree.
They were edited with an ability far
above the average. Vet.wilh all this. we
do not suppose that they made money
in proportion to the amount of capital
invested in. and the amount of labor
betowed upon them. Seperate, they
were not perhaps what we would call
well patronized papers. Consoli
dated, with the capital, the energies
and labor of t he two combined, they
will certainly pay, and will be the
equals of any pap us published south
of the t hio river. Financially, we
expect the new paper, composed of
tiie two old ones, to succeed. As the
organ of the Democratic party, one
strong one will prove more cllieaeious
than two week ones. This is the way
we regard it. Hut notwithstanding
this increase of strength we will
stand ns before, ever ready to defend
the principles of our party, even
though they be assailed by this heavy
lint we did not set out to write
about this. The tendency of the day
is towards consolidation and cutting
down expenses. This is so in all
business enterprises, and why not in
newspapers ? One well conducted,
strong, independent newspaper is
worth a score of half supported, half
starving journals that must be kept
up by loans and contributions from
Tom. Dick and Harry. A paper
can not be independent under
such circumstances. It would be
much better for the country
and for the credit of the
press if there were only one newspa
per where there ate now a half doz-
zen. In this view of the case we
commend the course of our Nashville
cotemporaries, not that we would
class the I nimi nn l Ami rii' tn and the
mitr among the starvelings by any
lneans, luit tlieir course shows that
they appreciate one strong journal ns
of more value to themselves, and their
patrons, than two weak ones.
Tin: Ayki;s trial at Maryville lias
resulted in a mistrial, owing to the
sickness of one of the jurors. The
defence proposed several plans by
which a verdict could be had but the
representatives of the State did not
feel authorized to make any concess
ions. A gentleman residing in Mary
ville, of excellent judgment, w rites to
us that a very general change in pub
lic sentiment has taken place there as
to the chances of convicting Ayres
and that the civ.ise of it has been the
publication of the letters purporting
to have been written by Avrcs to
Webb for the purpose of hiring him
to kill Reynolds. These letters were
published and generally supposed to
be genuine. But on the trial they
were not oll'ered as evidence, ami no
attempt was made to prove them
genuine. Counsel for the defendant
offered to prove them forgeries, and
we are informed that Col. liuxter
made some pretty Btrong insinuations
as to what tUey would prove in refer
ence to their origin, publication, Ac,
if an opportunity was afforded. We
have heard many comments on this
failure to produce the letters or ex
plain how they came to be published.
Grave suspicions have been aroused
which, if allayed, would promote the
cause of justice. If the letters are
genuine, they ought to bo produced
and go to the jury. If they are for
Sirica, the public want to know who
forgl them, why they were given to
the press, to publish without their first
being fully vevified, and who is ro
sponsible lor it.
Tin: in rti i.m. records of toe Treas
ury Department show what we have
repeatedly claimed in the Ciiuomi i.i:,
that there has been no material con
traction of the currency under Ik-publican
rule, and that the dis-
I tress ami depression i:i the
business of the country does not
grow out ot a contraction ol paper
money, but is the legitimate result of
the over production inflation, ex
travagance and premature expansion
of certain departments of business
provoked by the war and its attend
ant evils. Wc, then-fore, insist that
the following is a correct exhibit of
the volume of currency in 165 and
in 175. The circulation in 1MI5

Mr. Pendleton, "young Green

first fpeech claimed that in HH.i we
had s2,10O,O0(I,Mii, but now he has
already come down to 000,000,000.
On this subject the statements of
Gen. Garfield, for many years one of
the leading Representatives in Con
gress, and as familiar with financial
(juestions as any man in Congress,
are worth as much as Mr. Pendleton's
or .nr. j.rigni s. i .cn. iiarneiit, in a

work is re-jieclable."
This is the right kind of advice,
and if practiced upon it will soon
work a great change in the South.
We have known of many noble ex
amples of young men, who, under the
old order of things, lived in ease and
aftlurnee, and were never taught to
labor. The new state of affairs found
them penniless, and, to all outward
appearances, helpless, lint they went
to work with a will, and their success
has been highly creditable to tlieir
manhood, lint there are others who
are whining away a miserable exist
ence, utterly worthless to themselves
and to the community in which they
live. They hold on to the old ex
ploded idea that work is not respect
able, and thereby render themselves
an object of mixed contempt temper
ed with pity.

When the painful duty devolved
upon us of writing the obituary of the
late Kx-lVesident Johnson, we had
lived to speak kindly of the virtues
of the last survivor of the large
number of politicians in Tennessee
whom we encountered and fought on
our advent into public life. That the
Lord has been so merciful to us, and
so long preserved its in the midst of
great dangers in prison and out of it,
we, in part, attribute to the fact that
we never voted the Ueinoeratic ticket
We were first a Federalist, then s
Whig, now a Republican, and, by the
blessing of God. we stand ready to
oppose anything or anybody appear

Sam. C.i:i:v, in one of his denia-
irogical appeals to an Ohio Democratic
audience, selected a working man
from his audience and declared to
him that he, the working man, paid a
greater tax every year to the Govern
ment than A. T. Stewart, the great
merchant prince ot the Western
World. The Cincinnati Cuiiuinrrinl,
noticing this false statement and its
evident purpose, says that. A. T.
Stewart's jii rsninil tax bills for the
past three years have been as follows :
For 1S72, s-JJ5, 177.00

During the peri d of the income tax
he paid to the Government annually

he ever paid.
The Ohio canvass is going on in
earnest on both sides. The Republi
cans have nearly two hundred ap
pointments for public meetings in the
next two weeks. Among the speak
ers announced are Gen. Hays, Sena
tors Sherman, Morton ami Windom,
Hon. .las. A. Garfield, lion. Jas. Mon
roe, Hon. Stewart L. Woodford of
New York, Hon. Win. Lawrence and
Hon. L. D. Woodworth. The Demo
crats are equally uctive. Gov. Allen
makes a speech almost every day.
Sam. Carey is also constantly fulmi
nating. The State will be thoroughly
canvassed. The Republicans are
confident of carrying the State by a
Tiik editor oT the -l;r docs not
want to engage in a '-personal war

At 5 P. M., on the 20th, we steamed

ton Howls and fortress Monroe, before

scenery grand and all the surround

was like spreading a grand banquet

a magnificent view of sunrise on the

awhile and lie down. Not that I wus

At dinner I made a bold move for tlie
table, but after a glance and taste I
again made up my mind to wait
awhile. Found I was not alone, and
there were quite a number of " vacant

Nilie-lentbs of all business Is trant'BCt
ed by menus of bank credits. In tlie
monih of February, IN71, an examina

counters in llie six days, $.')",000,00tl,
of which only fjlfl, 000,000 was in money.
All the rest was in forms of commer

the steps taken In purehasioij and

bank ts as essential to this exchange
of values as a railroad to the transpor

Our two thousand National hanks
located all over the country are busi
ness centers, where unimployed money
finds its way, and into which business
men resort for loans and accommoda
tions. In these batiks, at this season
of the year, are about 700,000,000. and
their loans and discounts reach fOOO,
000,000. Husiness men rely on them
with confidence, because they are held
by the strong bonds of the law to be
faithful, and are constantly under the
eye of the Government. They must
march abreast of the Government In
efforts to restore the currency to par
with gold. Whenever the Govern
ment makes the greenback equal to
the coin, the banks must do the tame
with their notes.
All this the Democrats propose to
overturn. The people are to lie left to
piivate banks, and to tlie tender mer
cies of the Sbyloeks of the street.
Where have the great failures fallen?
Not upon National banks, but upon
private banks Duncan it Sherman,
and the great private Hank of Califor
nia, whose operations were not
checked and guarded by the powerful
control of the Government.

Kill the Burslar3.
Whether the shooting of burglars Is
a perfectly legal ainQsement is a ques
tion which has been submitted by one
Thomas II. lieilly to that eminent
light of tho law, Charles O'Couor,
Ksij., of New York. Mr. Heilly de
sires to know whether the law requires
that a burglar shall be challengtd lie
fore shooting him, even if he be seen
in the act of plundering, and also if it
is lawful to shoot him 011 simply seeing
him cuter one's house at night. Mr.
O'Couor expresses the opinion that if
you shoot a burglar while plying his
avocation " no one will inquire wheth
er all the forms or ceremonies were
served which some ancient lawgiver
or modern enactment for that case
made and provided, may have dis
creetly suggested, whatever may be the
strict law applicable to the case; and
wnatever exact duty might enjoin, no
magistrate will commit the slayers to
prison, no grand jury will indict them,
nor will any district attorney prosecute
or petit jury convict. If, indeed, any
one in this line of official authorities
could lie found to act adversely, tlie
next in succession would be apt to re
pudiate his doings : or If a concurrence
of the whole could be imagined, end
ing in a conviction, it is very certain
that no Governor would hesitate an
instant In awarding to the accused a
safe deliverance by ids dispensing pow
er." The United States and the Centennial.
A Philadelphia correspondent of the
New York Tribune says there is darger
that the I nittd btates will be highly
respresented at the Centennial Inhibi
tion. I p to this time the number of
applications has not reached 3,600, not
one-half that will be required to fill the
assigned limit. Several States and Ter
ritories are as yet wholly unrepresen
ted, ami there are others that give no
promise of making anything approach
ing a satisfactory exhibit of their in
dustries and natural products. The
opinion is expresseti that there w ill be
a great rush of applicants as soon as a
day is fixed for closing the books, but
that day can not be much longer post
poned. "Hay, Mister," said a soiled-looking
boy uu the wharf yesterday, "do you
ever give a piece 'o watermelon to a
oor boy whose father 'n mother's
dead, 'u who goes to Sunday school, 'a
has got a sore heel?" The luau vas
deeply touched, and gave him a large
slice oil' of a rotton one. Norwich
