cil, in Nashville, for a day or two last
week. The moat exciting subject of
discussion that was brought beior8'
the learned body ot Esculapiana is that
of the some-time-ago-reported case of a (
living snake in the stomach oi Miss
Thankful Taylor, who lives near Chris
tiana, in Rutherford county. This is a
deeply interesting case, and for a year
or more has been engaging the atten
tion of the faculty in Middle Tennessee,
especially. The patient, Miss Taylor,
during her whole liie, had been subject
to attacks of illness which were
supposed to be epileptio in their nature
The snake first appeared in
the close of the year 1863. She was then
tinder the care of Dr. W hite, who treat
ed her for tape worm. Dr. Bugar took
barge of the patient in January, 1874,
and the snake showed itself several
times, the Doctor once thrust a pin
through it, but it escaped down her
throat. He says that be extracted it in
June of the same year, and that it was
tbree-fourtbs of an inch in width and
and twenty-three inches in length. The
matter was brought up in the Ruther

Several weeks ago Judge Gillenwaters,
of the First Judicial Circuit, East Ten
nessee, died, and Governor Porter ap
pointed Col. J. A. McKinney, as his suc
cessor, a few days after Gillenwaters'
body was buried. The people of Sullivan
County held an indignation meeting and
passed the following resolutions:
Whereas, Gov. J. D. Porter has filled
the vacancy in the office ot Judge of the
First Judicial Circuit by the appointment
of a sucee?or bef ore the remains of the
tformer i-oeumbent could have been con
veniently conveyed to his home and bur
ied, and without waiting to be informed
of the wishes ot the bar and people of the
circuit, and hns, we believe, evinced an
utter disregard of, and an unwillingness
to know the preference of those immedi
ately interested, therefore:
Resolved, That we regard this action of
the Governor in making said appoint
ment 'n such not baste, as wanting in
eoect to the memory ot the dead,
diguity to his friends,
icency or necessity
Resolved, That we regard this action
of the Governor as not enly exhibiting
an inexcusable haste, but in making said
appointment without the knowledge
eol the preferences of the peo
ple of the Circuit and in advance of any
possibility of an acquaintance with the
wishes of its bar, and citizens, the Gov
ernor has been guilty of gross improprie
ty and offered an insult to the intelligence
olthe First Judicial Circuit.
Resolved further. That we regard Gov.
Porter's action as precipitate, marked
by indecent haste, an indignity to the
dead, outraging the sensibilities of the
friends of the deceased; and exhibits a
reckless indifference to the rights and
wishes of the people in the choice of their
magistrates, and shows a total absence
f those traits of character which we hop
ed were possessed m an eminent degree
by the Executive of the State.
Hesolved, That by these resolutions,
we intend no disrespect to the gentleman
who received the appointment at the Gov
ernor's hands, and disclaim any resent
ment that a successor to the iormer in
cumbent has been chosen outside the lim
its of onr own county.
Those who tiil to read the speeches of
the colored men, printed on oor Supple
ment, will do themselves great injustice.
The speakers will compare favorably
with many ol our best orators, and the
sentiments are a decided improvement on
what has been expected from that source,
That was a etror.g and wise utterance of
the first speaker, McCary, col., of Indiana,
when he told his people that they must
become skillful mechanics and men of
intelligence, integrity and self-respect, if
they ever expected to achieve for their
race anything liko political or commer
cial equality with the whites. "Neither
wealth nor learning will compensate for a
contracted or distorted moral develop
ment. This strikes at the rost of the
matter the colored people (whether
from the effects of slavery or not we dare
not Bay) are not improving in this direc
tion as they are in intelligence. McCary
tates a fact well: "It was a common mis
take in ante-bellum days that if slavery
was abolished all other desirable condi
tions for the negro would or necessity fol
low. This we know has not been tho
case. The color line is as clearly and
distinctly drawn to-day as it was befoie
the first gui was fired on Fort Sumpter.
True, the colored man is no longer prop
erty, but the. dominant race of the South
does not accept him as their politico
equal; hence he is as distinctly a black
man to-day ad he was when toiling as a
slave.'' lie says further: "Our enemies
say that we as a race are not susceptib'e
Of a development of the highest order of
intellectual ability as the white race. To
disprove this is the work of the rising gen
eration. lhe educated colored man
must be seen iu the foundry, in the ma
chine shop, in the carpenter shop in
fact, in every department of industry, not
only because of his well developed
muscle, but his well-informed brain to
control that muscle so that if he manu
facture but the smallest and most insig
nificant article, let him do it well." Gov.
Pinchback, col., of La., made a notable
speech We make a few extracts: "I do
not believe, if we should put it to a vote
ot the white people of the South, that
they wouU reinstate slavery.'' "No State
can deprive any citizen of the right to
Tote on account of race, color, or previ
ous condition. No State shall deprive
any citizen on account of color of this
great prerogative; but they can deprive
you of this great prerogative on account
of unfitness. Tbey can do that, and it is
well that they can do it, I say; for unless
we exercise this privilege in an intelli
gent manner to preserve our rights and
condition as citizens, the right ought to be
curtailed. Uov. l'inchback then went
on to say that if the colored people in
tended to array themselves as a race
against the whites, they (the negroes)
would become extinct as did the Indians
who once Inhabited tlii country. lie
aid; "If the Democratic party would ac
cord to the colored people all their rights
before the law, I would be
Republican." J The most imports0'
speech made, however, was by C. S
Smith col., of Alabama, who made a new
departure. He introduced several reso
lutions, and defended them with ability
recommending the colored people every
where to cast thfeii suffrage only for hon
est, capable andj worthy men, and with
out respect to color, hasty or personal
considerations,''! and urging them to
"seek an alliance with the Independent
Conservative element of the South." This
is the first sign we have yet seen of a
true statesman and great leader among
the colored people. The course here
mapped outforjthe negroes is the only
one which will lead them to prosperity and
We are very far from wishing to lay
claims to statesmanship, yet we feel
it onr duty to say that we regard that
fiortlon of the late revenue law, impos
ng a tax of fifty dollars upon commer
cial travellers or drummers, from with-out-tbe
State, I as very impolitic It
would seem that while others ot our sis
ter Southern State are inviting and en-
c uragiDg trade from abroad, mat we
are seeking to repel ana exclude it. Ana
besides the tax will come on our people
at last, lor how easy for a wholesale es
tablishment to add a per cent, to their
goods covering even tenfold such a tax.
We do not remember where tne measure
originated and who favored it, nor do
we care, we only wisn to do our duty
to our people by pronouncing it an
egregious blunder. ScoUsboro (Ala.,)
Oor miller merchants will agree with
the above. The tax on drummers op
erates especially hard on the half dozen
splendid merchant mills in this county,
in asmnch as Alabama is their princi
pal market. I

Biographical Sketch of our Present Distin
The Southern Law Review for this month
contains an ejegant engravng and bio
graphical sketcn of Chancellor William
Frierson Cooper, of this city. He was born
on the 11th of March. 1H2U, in Williamson
county, reared In Maury county .and has
lived since early manhood in Davidson
county. His paternal grandfather was a
captain In Sumpter's brigade during the
revolutionary war, and the Frlersons and
Coopers both moved to Middle Tennessee
early in the present century. At twelve he
spent a winter in New Orleans, learned the
French language, and acquired a taste for
French literature. In the summer of 1K34,
James K. Polk took his youngest brother
and two of his nephews to Y'ale College to
finish their education, and persuaded young
Cooper to loin them. These young Tenness
eeans, under the charge of the future Presi
dent of the United States, paid their respects
to President Jackson, and bowed before the
tomb of Washington. They entered the
same class at Yale College, and graduated
four years later. Upon his return home he
was offered an equaf partnership, as soon as
he could obtain a license, by a leading law
yer of Columbia, but considering himself
unfitted tor the contests of the forum de
clined. Having previously concluded to
study medicine, he diligently applied him
self during thenext two years, by taking a
course of lect ures at the University ot Penn
sylvania. While the study he had chosen
was profoundly interesting, its practice was
not suited to his taste, and he therefore con
cluded to change his profession, and com'
menced the study of law. When he became
of age, he obtained a license to practice, and
