business capacity will prove of value to
that great euterprie. He will doubt
less prove an efficient ofilcer, and will
aid materially in the completion of the
line in contemplation.
The New York Tribune is not
favorably impressed with Speaker
Kerr's treatment of the Liberals. It
"If Speaker Kerr had been especially
desirous of teaching Independ
ents, Liberals, and all other unattached
people of that kind, to go back to their
own place, he could scarcely have devised
a belter plan than he fell upon in tho ap
pointmont of some of his committees. Snub
bing Mr. Chittenden, Gen. Banks, and
others, is likely to be construed as a good
indication that the Democratic party wants
no u'l from people who do riot run 'with

Gov. Hendricks, of Indiana, has the

This is one case that Democratic
journals will carefully refrain from
speaking about. If one Republican
official among ten thousand proves
dishonest, they make a great blow
about it, but utterly refuse to give the

For forty years past we have looked
on at the workings of King Alcohol,
but the drunkenness, profanity, black
guardism and wholesale immorality
of last Friday night, excels any
thing of the kind that has ever come
under our observation. Yes, in this
city of churches, white and black,
old and young, seem to have been
drunk. Such howling, yelling, hard
swearing and villainous profanity, we
have never heard before. I
Our testimony is sustained by
that of the best men in the place
Whether the police were on duty at
all, we are not advised, but certain it
is, that every man, boy and drunken
woman did just as they pleased, and
met with little or no opposition.
We call npon tho friends of law
and order and of sobriety to emigrate
toourcity and help us organize the
temperance forces and to put down
this monstrous evil of the day.
And now, we call upon Moody and
Saukey to pay us a visit and give us
a turn. We call upon the churches,
also, to unite as one body to put
down this crying shame. We call

In vain may onr church members
go to and from their scats in the

Tlits much we say for the present,
intending to be heard again upon the
our paper for is7o.
To-dny wc will fend out tlie
last issue of the Wkkki.y Wnm axp
I'tinoNici.E for the year 1875. As
we draw near to tho end of the old
year and arc about to enter upon a
new one, wo take this occasion of
addressing a few words to our
patrons. We already reach a larger
number of readers with our two edi
tions, daily and weekly, than any
other paper published within a radius
of two hundred and fifty miles of
Knoxville, or between here and
Richmond on the East, here and At
lanta on the South, here and Nash
ville on the West or between here
and Louisville and Cincinnati on the
North, but if we can succeed in
doubling our list during the year
187(5, our facilities for doing good
will be correspondingly increased,
and our ability for improvement will
be very much enhanced. There is
no reason why our circulation should
not only bo doubled, but trebled and
In tho first place, our weekly paper
is larger and contains a great deal
more reading matter than any other
paper published in this section, and
will compare favorably with any pub
lished in the country. We give more
choice reading matter for less money
than can bo obtained from almost
any other source.
The year 1876 will be aa inter
esting event in the history of this
country. This year we celebrate the
one hundredthanniversary of our na
tional birth. The grand feature of
this is the Centennial Exposition at
Philadelphia. But there will be
demonstrations of an unusual char
acter all over the country. We pro
pose to devote a largo share of our
ample space to full and accurate re
ports of these things, and this feature
alone will be worth more than three
times the price of our paper.
In addition to this, tho country
during the year 1S7C will be called
upon to elect a President and a Vice
President of the United States. In
a most exciting1 one. If you want to
keep posted in the progress of this
contest you have only to read our
daily or weekly paper.
Congress is in session now, and for j
the first time iu a great many years, i
the House is Democratic. This cir-
cumstanee gives more than ordinary
interest to tho action of this body.
The Ciiitcxici.E jand Wmc. and
CuaoNnu.E will give faithful reports
of all that is done.
A little exertion on the part of our
friends we are satisfied will increase
our already largo circulation to a
much larger one. We ought to have
at least five thousand subscribers to
our weekly paper, in East Tennessee
alone, in addition to those we already
have upon our books. We have ever
stood by the interests of this section
of our common country and will con
tinue to do so to the extent of our
ability. The fact that we have done
this, and have contributed all ia our
power to make known the resources
of our beloved Commca wealth, brings
us hundreds of letters and snbscrib-
crs from the North, anxious to knowj.act, Thi. invov a reduction of the
of our genial climate, rich mines of
coal, iron &.C., and our fertile vallics
of productive lands, We expect to
continue to merit these substantial
manifestations of approval and ex
tend our circle of readers until they
shall r.umber thousands in every
State and teritory of the Union.
So friends, if you want a first-class
paper, either daily or weekly ; one
that gives you the latest news, local
and by telegraph in each issue, send
on your names for the Daily Ciiko.n
1CI.E, and if you do not wish a daily
then for the Wekkly Wm; amj
CiuiOMtLE, an i wc guarantee that
you shall have the full worth of your
money. Send at once and be"in
with the new year.

WlUO AN'li CliltONU I.K,
The New York Herald must have
a sensation, and if it can not base
such an event upon facta, the fertile
imagination of its editorial corps is
brought Into requisition. What it
lacks in real facts it makes up in
black bead-lines, ornamented profuse
ly with exclamation points. Just
now it is stirring up a "big thing on
ice" in the s'lape of a "cock-and-bull
story" about a secret oath-bound
organization, the purpose of which
is to persecute Catholics and fan the
flames of "religious and sectarian
bigotry." When we read the Herald's
v.rpo!c of the organization, covering
about a page and a half of its mam
moth sheet, we came to the conclusion
that the whole country must be filled
with lodges of the "Order of the
American Union," but upon closer
examination wn fnnl tbnt t'rro wrro
but few of them in existence, even
according to the Herald's own version.
But we are told that Grant and
Blaine and Postmaster General Jct
ell belong to it, and that, forsooth, it
is assuming gigantic proportions. In
the first place, wc doubt if the organ
ization has made much headway yet ;
and secondly, we doubt if the Herald
knows anything about its aims or
principles. Thirdly, we doubt the
story about Grant, Blaine and Jew
ell ; and lastly, we have very little
doubt but that the whole thing was
concocted in the Herald office.
We clip the following from the
Jonesboro' Herald and Tribune :
"Cul. Reeves and his deputies went for
tho ' profession jurcrs ' this Court, though
some of them, without being summoned,
slipped into the jury box and got to serve
on two or three juries. The Court being
advised of this fact, announced that in the
future no juryman should be paid per diem
unless he was regularly Bummoned.''
We are glad to seo this incubus
upon the Courts of our country re
ceiving proper attention in some lo
calities. We remember to have teen
present in one of the Quarterly Courts
of Washington county some time ago,
and we were pleased with the manner
i.i which the professional juror ques
tion was Laudled. Col. T. II. Reeves
made some pointed remarks on that
occasion, in which he seemed to have
the sympathy of the Justices present
in the Court. A man who will hang
around a Court House habitually with
the view of being placed upon juries,
for tiie paltry compensation allowed,
is not fit for the position ; and it is
this class of men that is fast bringing
the whole jury system into disrepute.
Justice administered , through the
agency of such men is nothing more
nor less than a game of chance. They
lack the honesty and intelligence
necessary to make competent jurors.
Raxdall, Chairman of the House
Committee on Appropriations, makes
great boasts about what he is going to
do. The Washington correspondent
of the Cincinnati Gazette says :
"Mr. Randall, after full consultation
with sue-h members of his Committee us are
present, and a close examination of the esti
mates submitted from the Departments, and
a personal interview with the leading otli
cials in the various Departments, maintains
Lis belief that be will be able to reduce the
annual expenditures at least 410,000,000.
As two principal items, he takes from the
i arm v and navv establishments 10.000. 000
army to lo.U'Xl men, am. a
gradual rnus;rir.g out cr diachargo of su
pernumerary officers, and also the sule ol
most ol the small ahips and iruii-clads of the
navy, and a corresponding reduction
among tlie force of officer?, Beumcn and ma
riners. Mr. Kand.ill feels confident that he
will obtain the support of the Republicans
of bis Committee, and a majority of the Re
publicans on the floor, for these two meas
ures of retrenchment.
"The bill for the reduction of the army
will be introduced thortly after the holi
days, and tiio degree of reduction, as
already a'.aleJ, ia fully determined upon.
The method by which it ia to be accomplish
ed, to far as the surplus officers are con
cerned, is not yet detei mined. The pur
pose will be either to provido for a reduc
tion to tuko pluco gradually, by the usual
csfcuoltie of the tervlee, atd by ttopping
both promotions and new appointments, or
in some way mak it at tny as possible for
the ofLue'.s who iu the end must be dropped.
A proposition to plu e s'ich upon tho re

THE WHISKYCONSPI RACY.
A (reeling; Insrrvtow Between Col.
Joyce mod 111 WIT In lbs Mis.
Special Dispatch to the New York Timet.
St Louis. Deo. 24. Mrs. Joyce, wifo of
Col. Joyce, arrived in Jell'orson, City yes
terday morning with her little girl and
babe, ana a; once procoeaoa to ins reni
tenliary where her Iirtband is confined.
She bad seen Joyce since tis incarceration,
and the meeting between the two is dusrri-
bed to have been meet Ht1ctin(r. During hor
recent severe trials Mrs. Joyce has eu-tsin-ed
herself with remarkable heroism. While
waiting in the reception-room of the prison
yesterday she endeavored to preserve her
ttcciuLomed composure; but when her hus
band euiarped from the adjoining room,
cla't In his convict stripes, she at oncefj"ve
way t her overburdened feelings. Mie
finally bcrame composed, and had a con
version with biw lasting several hours.
Joyce bore the meeting and the tears of his
wife manfully, but when the prison author
ities notified them that the interview mui-t
end, and she aro-e to say good-by, and told
him that she would return tbo neit day
aud bring the baby, born nince his impris
onment, to see him, be broke down and
left hor pretence abrupty. During the ab
sence of Mrs. Joyce from her hotel the
United Hates Marshal, accompanied by
Amount District Attorney bliss, and ado
Wictive, proceeded to the room which had
been asMgned her and seized all her bag
gage. The trunks were then opened in the
prenncoof Mrs. Joyce and searched for
Uuited States bonds, and other wealth of
Joyce, alleged to be In hit wiIVs possession.
Mrs. Joyce took the matter quietly, and
watched the examination of her dresses and
her babv't apparel, with evident uncon
toro. Though ber entire baggage was
overhauled no bonds or papers could be
found except a few letters rceived by her
from friends and relatives. The Marsha!
assured Mrs. Joyce that it was a most disa
greeable), and ha thought a very small,
pioco of business to be ongagod in, but that
ne was bound to obey the ordors of the
court. Mrs. Joyce replied that it made no
difference to hor, and was not unexpected.
She had been advised soveral days before,
her departure from uroon liake to pack
hor trunks so as to give as little Inconven
ience as possible) to those who "might want
to overhaul thoni. Bhn also remarked that
lince her arrival in Jefferson City she had
earned that a detective had shadowed ber
nd her baggage all the wav from Wiscon-
m. ana enn was sorry sne am not Know it,
s sho would have dolivcred formal nosse-
slnn of hor trunks, and thus relieved her
elf of tho trouble of looking after them.
Though the alleged object of the search
was for bonds and other Dorsonal property
of Joyce, it is stated, on pretty good au
thority, that tho real purpose of tho Gov
ernment in makinir the levy was to possess
itself of certain letters from liabcock to
Joyce, directly criminating the former in

We desire to place a copy of eitter
our DAILY or WEEKLY Paper in
every household ia Tennessee, and in
as many as possible in other States. To
do this we recognize (he fact that we
must make a thoroughly reliable and
live journal. This is our purpose. We
propose to keep our readers posted
