HERALD AND MAIL.
With Supplement.
Friday nftrnlng, Uee.10, 1873.
This from the Chicago Times: "In the
population of Tennessee, there are two dogs
to every man; and this fart goes a long way
xowaru accounting lor the hitherto unex
plained popularity of Parson Brownlow's
paper."
Boss W . SI. Tweed has escaped from
prison in New York, where lie has been oon
fined several years. He was allowed to visit
his wife, accompanied by an officer. Tweed
was allowed to go upstairs and converse
with his wife several minutes, but he never
returned, and made good his escape.
The democratic House of Represents
tives wisely chose for their Speaker, lion
m.k.. Jvorr, or Indiana. He wag warmly
supported by Southern Representatives. In
the Liemocratic Cations, there were four can
muaics, iverr, Knndall, Cox and Saylor. On
the third ballot, the vote stood: Kerr. e
Randall 63, Cox 7, Snyler I. On motion of
Randall, the nomination was made unani
mous. Hon. Geo. M. Adams, ex-memlerof
Congress from Kentucky, was nominated
for Clerk. John J. Thompson, of Ohio, was
nominated for Sergeant-at-Arms on the first
ballot. L. H. Fitzliugh, of Texas, was nomi
nated for Doorkeeper. He was Hergeant-at-Arms
for the Confederate Congress. James
Htewart, of Va., was nominated for Post
master. Rev. J. L. Townsend, of Washing
ton, an Episcopalian, was nominated for
Chaplain. Of course all these nominations
were equivalent to election, and the candi
dates were all elected on Monday. Mr. Kerr's
election will give the Democratic party
prestige Is fore the country. Let Congress
act as wisely in everything else it does, and
we may expect to elect Bayard, Hendricks,
Tilden or some other good Democrat for
our Centennial President.
Gen. N. B. Forrest lias joined tbe Cum
berland Presbyterian Cburch.
Gen. Babcock, Grant's Private Secre
tary, has been indicted by the grand jury
at St- Louis, for complicity in the whisky
frauds and swindling the Government.
The No P opery and Forced Educaticj
portions of the President's Message mean
that he is a third term candidate, and is
appealing to what he deems religious
prejudices. This will not win with sound
Protestants.
II. 1. Itiddle is the Democratic candi

last anuual message before his successo
18 elected. Why did he not say this is
his last annual message? Because he
expects to be a candidate for the third
term. Ihis is exactly what this sentence
means.
A Bill has been introduced in the Sen
ate to aid the Texas Pacific Railroad.
We are opposed to Government aiding
the road, but if the aid is given, we hope
the Southern members will see to it that
it secures a Southern road to the P cifie,
and not merely a St Louis and Pennsvl
van: a ltoad with a Southern name. Is
the gauge to be the Southern 5 feet or the
xSortherii four feet and eight and a ha

President's ITessaga.
President ('r.-iut'.s message to Congress
is very lengthy, but not specially interest
ing. His remarks on education and tax
ing church property probably have more
significance than any other portion of his
message :
As we are now about, to enter upon a
second ecntenniul, commencing our man
hood as a uat.ou.it is well to look bick
upon the past and study what will be best
to preserve end advance our future great
ness. From the fall of Adam for his
transgression to the present day, no na
tion has ever been free frem threatened
Hangers to its prosperity and happiness.
We should look to the dangers threaten
ing us, and remedy them so far as lies in
onr power. He are a republic whereof
one man m as good us another before the
law. Under such a form of government
it is of the greatest importance that all
should be possessed of intelligence and
education enough to cast a vote with a
right understanding of its meaning. A
large association of ignorant men cannot
for any considerable period oiTer a suc
cessful resistance to tyranny or oppres
sion from the educated few, whether di
rected by the demagogue or by priest
. raft. Hence the education of the masses
becomes of the first necessity for the pre-s-rving,
because they have secured the
cr jatest good to tbe greatest proportion ol
n.o population of any form of govern-m-nt
yet devised. All other fonts of
K'ernment approach it just in proportion
he general diffusion of education aud
i d'pendeiice of action. As tbe piinia
.. rep, therefore, to our advancement
i . 1 tht has marked our progress in
I.- past century, J snugest to your car
tM consideration, and most earnestly
re.. nmend it, that a Consti'iitional
A.-..vldinent Op submitted fo the Legisla
tors of the several States forratificatinn
mAng it the duty of each of the several
rSsrasto establish and forever maintain
t public schools, adequate to the ed-k-j

1.. connection with this important -ues
ti-'-, I would als. call vonr Attention in
tfc .oiponance ot correcting an evil, that
it permitted to continue, will probably
0 great trouble in our land before
tV-close of tbe nineteenth century. It
ia the accumulation of vast amounts of
'taxed church property. In sr0. 1
brieve, the church property r.f tbe United
fVtes which paid t.o lux, municipal or
RMe, amounted to a bout S-'-ll.lH 0,l!(l0; in
3 '60 the am. Mint bad doubled: in 175 it
is about $l,httMHM.oi 0. '. l'.lOO, without
eheck, il is sale to say t !i;s" prop. rty will
reach a sum exceeding !?:'..l('.( '0.000.

tion rid beaehts ot (l e-.-r itii'Mit, without
bearing its proportion (f the burden and
expenses ot the sa tn, will nt be looked
upon aciiuiestvn'.iy by tbo.-e who have
paid taxes. In a growir.g country where
real estate enhances so rapidlv witb
time, as in the I'ni'ed Slates, "there is
scarcely a limit to tbe wealth tl at mny
be acquired by corpot allot, s, religious or
Otherwise, allowed t retain real estate
without taxation. The contemplation of
o vast a property ;s here alluded to,
without taxation, may lead to sequestra
tion, without constitutional authority, and
possibly bloodshed. I would suggest the
taxation of all property equally, whether
church or corporation, c"i uipting only
the last resting place of tbe dead, and,
possibly with proper restrictions, church
edifices.
A Patriotic Speech.
Hon. L. (. C. Lamar, of Miss., was
made chairman of the Democratic Con
TTfus, which assembled Saturday in the
Jlall of Representatives, to nominate
candidates for Speaker, ("let k and other
fficers of the Ilou.-e. Mr. I.atrar, on
raking the chair, made the following mag
nifieent speech:
lie said they bad been ;iven this most
important branch of I lie Government,
because the people were dissatisfied with
tbe uial-aduiimstration ol tbe civil ser
vice, and he hoped they would show by
their course ihey method the trust.
He declared the public taith should lie
feerved inviolate, and that the United
(Hates ought to maintain a currency,
which should b? r s grod us that of any
ation in the world. He expressed the
desire to sec nil cortuptions uncovered,
od full protection t f lav accorded to ev
try one, without regard to race or color.
He closed with a glowing tribute to the
nag ot tbe republic.
bit. Lamar concluded bis eloquent
speech as follows: The people demand at
our hands . sweeping and thorough re
form in the civil service, which shall be
conducted io a spirit that will secure the
appointment to places of trust and re
sponsibility, tbe honest, tbe experienced,
and the capable, lhere is also an im
perative demand that a vigilant examina
tion be ".ade into tbe administration in
the public revenue ot the country, that all
the public accounts shall be scrutinized
by us, and corruption be ferreted out, and
wrong-doers, no matter how high or how
low, shall be fearlessly arraigned and fulful
exposed and punished. One ot the most
pressing demands upon us is to perfect
and adopt such a system of taxation as
will bring in the required revenue with
the lewest restrictions upon commerce,
and with the least burden to the people,
and tbat the burden shall be equitably
distributed and killtully adjusted. U
ing to the exigencies of one of those in
ternecine conflicts incident to the life of
almost every country, also a pernicious
system ot legislation, our people are suf
fering from the evils ot an irredeemable
currency. In meeting and grappling
difficulties of this vital and perplexing
question, it will be your dnty to take
care that nothing is done which would
impair the good faith of the country, or
tarnish the public honor, or lower or dis
turb the credit of our government, but
we are to remove those obstructions which
bar the- progress and check the prosperi-
ty ol the American people. It is our du
ty as Democrats, it is the daty and glory
of the Democratic party while it controls
this house, to see that the national cur
rency of the Democratic republic is made
equal io that of mnj nation on the earth,
and that the grandest aspirations of the
Democratic party and iti crowning glory
will be to restore the Constitution, to re
store its strength and authority, to make
it the protector of every section and State
in tbe Union, and of every human beiDg
of every color and condition in the land.
Apprehension and distrust of one part
of the nation for that portion of the South
ern people arrayed against the authority
of the Federal Governmeut in the late
war, would be an element of disturbance
to the American- Union, but has rniinlj
dsiappeared, as is evinced by your elec
tion, and in its stead has grown a more
fraternal feeling which regards us of the
Southern States as fellow-citizens of a
great nation. On the other hand, tbe
people of whom I am one, are here to d:iy
by their chosen representatives to honor
any draft which the American nation may
draw upon their patriotism or their faith
in the glory and beneficence of American
institutions. Applause. The experi
ment which has been introduced among
us. based upon the confidence in the
working of a local self-government, and
intended to solve the difficulties connec
ted with the recent social and political
transformation, shall have An Open
Field and Fair Play, and no hindrance
shall be placed in the way of its rigorous
development and its ample success. Ap
plause. J We want a Government that
we can love and rerere and serve from
the motives of reverence and love. We
hunger for a patriotism which Ehall knit
all the people together ia a generous, lov
iug brotherhood. Let us not torget that
the great victory of last fall which
brought us here was not achieved alone
by D. mocraticjvotes, but with the co-op
erating eflorts of independent patriots
and unselfish men of all parties, tired and
alarmed by the increasing evils resultiug
from corruption and mal-administi&tion
Reforms are urgently needed Let us
wisely make them. A renewed prosper
ity is everywhere urgently desired. Let
us secure it by removing unjust discrimi
nations, by imposing rigid economy, by
restoring a sound currency, by (ecuring
the rights of all States and all the peo
ple.

Tbe price of lands in Tennessee, to

system of labor, making a complete rev
olution in the agriculture ot t lie coun
try, and tbo stringency of mouelary
liiatteiB, awaken us to the necessity tf
finding some better mode ot converting
our labor, money and utuds into profit
and prosperity.
Our s is a lau-J eminently adapted to
stock, grain and grass; but we have
found that it does not par to raise, ban-
die and feed the ordinary stock of the
country known as scrubs: hence it be
liooves us to loon about lor a more prof-
ltible sort, ana to learu tee most sue
cestui nioilo of feeding, caring for
breemiii: and the general management
otsiiv.li. Jtierefore, alter consultation
with mativ ot our best farmers and stock
owers, we are solicited to make the
announcement that a convention of
breeders of improved stock of every va
riety will be held at Nashville, ihe sec.
nd Wednesday Id 1-eouary, attlieKu-
liAt. si x oflice, under the Maxwell
House, to consider such topics as are ot
interest and for tbe improvement of the
lovers of tine stock. We have seen tbe
immense r6vinue from this source
which flows into thr borders of our sis.

than bait a million of dollars worth ol

Kss-tys have been read ou the manage

sheep, swine and poultry. Discussions
have arisen upon tbe relative merits o
different breeds and different families of
particular breeds. By this means we
become a brotherhood, and, knowing
vtat each oiner nave, point t tie custo
mer to where it can be found.
There aro advantages innumerable in
a convention, end it is a matter ot vast
importance to every breeder of improv
ed stock in ihe State of Tennessee.
We inherit the most fertile soil, the
most delightful climate, the grandest
scenery and the purest water upon the
earth." Yet these rare and beautiful en
dow merits aie us yet left in a latent
state. Let us shake off lethargy, aud
open our eyes to the rich fields all about
us. Let every breeder come, and let
hi m be not afraid to speak bis thoughts.
Let us uoite and work en masse to pro
mote the stock interest of our country,
and thereby add wealth to its farmers.
Lei hs build up a market and a charao

attention of tbe world to Tennessee for
the finest specimens of breeding ani
mals. This can be done; we possess ad
vantages nowhere else to be found, but
we must bavo knowledge, system, labor
love and unity All these should be
lound in a convent! n.
We earnestly beg of you to meet us at

It now teims quite probable that

Convening of Congress.
The American.
The Fofty lourth Congress convened
Monday under very favorable auspices.
The interest in the occasion was very
great, and a large crowd was ou baud to
witness the opening ceremonies some to
pick any olhcial crumb tbat might be iy
ing around loose- Mr. Kerr was elected
Speaker by a strict party vote, and the
other fficers of the House, nominated in
democratic caucus, were all duly elected
If the Senate Mr. Key was sworn in and
took his eeat. There was a breezy debate
in tbe House over the interminable Lou
isiana question, which developed some
thing of partisan bias on both sides, but
was finally disposed of, as we think, very
propeny. Ex-Speaker Blaine presented
the case on his 6ide very strongly, so
strongly, indeed, that he earned the
House wi h him. The Louisiana usurpa
tion of two years ago was one of tbe
greatest outrages ever perpetrated, but as
there was since a compromise agreed to
by both parties in that State, which was
evidently intended to be inal and effect
ual until the next election, it is not tbe
part of wisdom now for Congress to seek
to undo that compact. Louisiana, like
Mississippi, will shake off her oppress
ions, and, like Mississippi, she will do it
in the regular way, at the ballot box.
The Democrats are starting out with mod
eration, which augurs a great deal better
than if, as in the case of .Republican ma
iorities of former Congresses, partisan
promptings were ueeueu tuiuuu iuiuo
and thin.
Slavery Preferred.
From the Pulaski Citizen-
Somewhere about the year 184 i Judge
Wm. E. Kennedy ot Maury county, long
since deceased, entertaining doubts as to
the propriety of holding "human souls in
bondage,'' as Wended Phillips would say,
concluded to manumit his slaves, and
send them by installments to Liberia.
Hav'mg arranged with the colonization
society, he called up thirty of his slaves
to counsel them, and give them his part
ing blessing. Among the thirty was Cy
rus, a blacksmith, end a good one at tbat,
who hesitated, and seemed to have some
misgiving as to the pleasuie of being eat
en by President Roberts' cannibals. Nor
would he consent to go, until his master
agreed that be might return in case be
shouldn't like his African home, and re
turn to be a slave for life. The new
made freedman with this understanding
set sail for his far-off Ethiopian home.
In due time the trusty ship measured At
lantic's watery waste, and dropped anch
or at an African port. Having remained
perhaps for a year, amid Libeiian jun
gles, he became disgusted with gorillas,
and the revolting savagery of his new
made friends in human shape, he began
to sigh for "tierce blood hounds, the cruel
lash, and galling chains," with which
"uncle Tom's cabin'' fired the northern
heart. So, bidding adieu to the king of
Dohomie, he bent his eager gaze to the
sun set shores of the "land of the free
and the home of the brave.'' His gallant
ship stood out to sea, he waved a long
auieu to Afric s golden strands, and in
lormignt 8 time, neara the " toe line in
the quiet waters of N. Y. harbor, Acd
what then?
The precious boon of freedom was still
his own, and as was natural he was loath
to give it up. So he bethought him of
swee Oberlin, (Ohio,) the region of goats'
milk, and good old "Western Kesarve"
and the paradise of the sable fugitives
irom cruel southland. I hither went tbe
returning exile, and cast in his lot
among the original projectors of the fW
mous under-ground K. R. Glad to
meet the "man and brother." All went
lovely for a time. But Cyrus soon learn
ed tnat nis new friends would : skin a flea
for his hide and tallow," and that they
demanded the "bricks without the tiles,"
and he sighed by reason of the hard
bondage, and wished for a Moses to lead
him away from this modern Egypt, while
he sang in his heart, ' though his lips
moved not
'Away down upon the Swanee River,
Far, far, away,
Dare's where my heart is tuniin ever,
Dare's where de old folks stay.
All "round de whole creation,
Sadly I roam.
Still loimin lor de old plantation,
And for de old folks hi home."
And with this he gathered up what
these, "men of Jericho'' bad left of his
substance, and turning to his old Tennes
see home, with a face swarthed by the
hot suns of Africa, and as to mach soured
by the Ohio cheese, he caught up the last
stanza of Sambo's favorite lyric--
"All de world am sad and dreary,
F.tiery where I roam,
Oh! dai kies how my heart prows weary,
sighing for de old. folks at home."
On and on he came, and by and bv.
the Louisville stage halted at the old
"Nashville Inn. Her cargo of passen
gers, Cyrus among them, was transferred
to the double decker ot Price, 1 homas
and Hough, bound for Columbia, with
Uncle Tommy on the seat, the best four
in hander that ever drew a rein or crack
ed a whip. Cyrus never was gladder to
see his daddy, than he was to hail "Uncle
Tommy," and his four bouncing bays.
He felt that he was almost home. Away
they went, and e'er the "blazing sun was
set," gazing from the upper deck of his
Tray c oath, lie descried the distant crest of
Mount 1 arnasus, clothed in the roautle of
azure hue, overlooking Columoia, and
in goodly viewol tbe old plantation home.
ll;s feeling ma3T be better imagined than
described. He had lied the burning suns
and scorching sands of African Saharas,
escaped tbe dangers of the wide, wide sea,
and the perils among ialse brethren, and
reported to the old folks at home, a slave
for life, but a wiser man. I yrus is still
living in Maury, a skillful artisan and a
respectable citizen.
Centerville (Ga.) Advocate: On Mon
day last, while some laborers on the plan
tation oi" Mr. J. Rowland were engag
ed in felling trees, some two or three hun
dred yards north west of his residence,
they were attracted by a pile of rocks
which lay upon the ground, east and west,
and in Eouiewhat ol giave-likc shape and
dimensions. J hev at once resolved to
investigate, and laid aside their ax-sfor
the more entertaining labor of scattering
the rocks right and left. At the bottom,
and lying upon its back, was the skeleton
of a man. The smaller bones were en
lirelv gone dissolved into dust; but the
skull, n portion of the pelvis and bones of
Die limbs were distinct. An ordinary car
ving-knife, much rust-eaten, a fiat, lor
eign looking brass button, and a bar of
lead rested with the dead. A few rusty
nails were found, also, which would indi
cate that the sepulcher had once contain
ed a cofbn. The most reasonable deduc
tion is, in our opinion, that the deceased
was a Confedeiate soldier, and met his
death in defense of his flag.
Atlant1 Herald: Yesterday a number
of persons from Henry county came up
to the city in carriages and wagons for
the purpose of taking the cars for Louis
iana, which they intend to make their fu
ture home. Among the emigrants was a
young country lass of about sixteen sum
mers, who, with her parents, was taking
leave of her native State for the far West.
There came with them as tar as the city
a youth of some eighteen years, who was
in love with a girl. As soon as the com
pany arrived at the car shed, he and his
sweetheart paired off in one corner of the
saloon, where for one hour be poured out
his heart's true sentiment in language
and acta which none but a youthful lover
can use under such circumstances. Fi
nally his bursting bosom could contain no
more and it slopped over in loud and
agonizing '"boo-hoos" that would have
done creuit to a yearling calf, then,
wringing his hands and rocking to and fro,
would plead iD an inaudible tone for her
hand and heart, all the time crying as if
his heart would break. Tbe girl appear
ed calm and unmoved.
