My Dear Sir I have, ever since 1
saw your proclamation convening the
legislature of Tennessee in extraor
dinary session, intended writing to
you, but my engagements thus far
have precluded the opportunity. And
even now I have only the time to ex
tend my congratulations upon the
prospect of the adjustment of our pub
lic debt. 1 do not hesitate to say that
were I a member of the legislature, 1
hhould promptly accept by my vote
the proposition of the holders "of the
Tennessee bonds, to reduce the face o(
the public debt forty per cent., thus
relieving Tennessee tax-payers o
aliout ten million dollars. Tennessee
can honorably accept, but cannot
aflord, In my judgment, to make pro
xjsitioiis lor the reduction of her pub
ic debt. J trust the legislature wil
make itself memorable by hems' in-
trumental in briniring this relief to
the people. Faithfully yours,

Dkar Sir I have intended for sev

cation on reading your proclaination ;
convening the legislature in extiaordi- i
nary session on the tilth proximo.
The settlement of our State debt on a I
basis satisfactory to mr creditors and!
our people is u consummation- thai)
every one must desire who values the !
wclf ire and honor of our Stale. It is j
evident that something should hedon. j
We cannot atlbrd to stand till. Th- j
debt is increasing all the w bile, and at :
no distant day, if let alone to grow, ;
will assume proportions fearful io con- j
template. In less we mean to repudi- j
ate the ilebt outright, which I do nt '
believe our people wish to do, it seems j
to me that there can lie no two onin- !
ion-ujhui the soundiu-ss of the propo
sition that the sooner we act tlie lict
Ur it will be f(.r ns( unless, indeed, P
c in be sh-iu n that the larger the debt
iiecouies the more ca-y its honest ai'
honorable adjustment w ill be. 1 trust
and will not allow myself to dotib
rh.it when our representatives assem
ble, they will approach the ipiot.tion
with a determination to solve the
problem worthy of the gra it v of thi
situation. No legislature ever a.-vcrn-bled
inTernies-ee has been called on t
face a graver respensibilitv. T h.p
the question will be met lis lieconu-

TUE STATIC DEBT.
Govornor Porter has by proclama
tion ordered a call session of the Legis
lature on December 5'Ji, for tlie
special purpose of a compromise w ith
the bondholders of the State, on a ba
sis of tQ cents on the dollar. The
bondholders bavo missed their golden
apporiuuitv, and the called session
.vill be. a nullity, unless the legisla
ture stultify themselves and go back
apon their previous record, which is
jarely probable, as they understand
full well the feeling of the people, and
there can be no adjustment of the fttato
debt, unless the bondholders lower
their sights frcin sixty cents on the
dollar to at least fifty cents ou the dol
lar for their bonds. With a larae
number of the largest tax-pavers, men
of ability and judgement, repudiation-
ists; the party ol repudiation -growing
stronger dally; with Htate bonds
now selling In the market at lorty-nvc
cents on the dollar there is no desire
on the part of the tax-payers of the
Sate to pay more on compromise to
tne bondholders than the ijonds are
worth at present compromise and pay
at that, or repudiate is the feeling of
those w ho desire a fair admstment if It
can be hail; if not they toj will go m,
the majority at least, lor repudia
tion iu toto. There are but few men,
native Tcnnesseans, Put what look
back with pride at the past history of
the State with an escutcheon that has
Decn untarnished in peace or war,
that would desire to see the fair name
of the volunteer State t irnished by the
indelible brand of repudiation. But
all thinking men understand the diffi
culty about the payment of the Stale
debt in lull. It can no summed up
m two words unable and unwilling;
and the additional knowledge on the
part of the tax-paver-: of the inability
of Ihe Iwjii Jholders to collect their
bonds only by the accpiiescenceof the
people through their representatives in
ihe legislature, with tne enforced
shrinkage of property since lKOU ol
three hundred millions of taxable
wealth impartial justico would demand
ibat the bondholder should lie paid
something, but not sixty cents and
common sense ought to teach tin
bondholders to take whatever the Leg
islature will oiler them, for like the
lloman Sybil's books tlie oll'crings
will be less iu the future. Tlie debt
)Ught to be sc tied dee'.i enough to lie

ought not t be a lowed to run longer
ili-.in thirty-three years; Great Bonded
debts, State or national are dangerous
to K.-pubhcjtn institutions, aud when
the yoke of the tax-gatherer gets gall
.ng and outweighs the lienefits of the
rovernment to the governed, redress
by ballot or force has always come
sooner or later; and any arrangement
of fun ling the debt w hatevei tlie State
lebt may lie compromised at, in fair
or six per cent, bonds, payable in fif
ty or one hundred years, will in the
long run. be, and ought to be, unsatis
factory to and repudiated by the peo
ple; as honest men and people do not
pay their di bts that way, by drawing
a note or bond piiyahle by their grand
uid great grandchildren, and leave to
them a heritage of debt that they had

"Kill the cat, and the cow goes dry."
6o says an old adage, and ao says
the farmer's w ife, and consequently
many a cat'a life is spared, which oth
erwise, would be destroyed. The
statement of the proverb is generally
regarded as a mere irrational notion
handed down to the present genera
tion as one of the many idle fancies,
which tradition has taught us. But
scientific examination aud Investiga
tion of late days, both in our country
and in Europe.shows that the old say
ing has logic in it. Scientists tell us
that clover, so iraportantto the growth
and fattening of cattle, proves a fail
ure unless It ilowers ore fed upon by
a sufficient number of bumble-bees to
fertilize it. Bumble-bees aredeetroytd
by mice, and these in turn can only
be. kept down by an adequate supplv
of cats. Hence cats are neceasary to
have fat cattle. A writer in one of the
papers of the country, has given an
amusing piece, showing the utility ot
cats in tilling the farmer's nurse.
"And if the lines be set w ide anart.
Then all the boys can get them by
I'his is the bee that fevtillied the
clover. This is the mouse, that ate the
bee, that fertilized the clover. This is
the cat, that caught the mouse, that

is possible with sheen and otherstoi k,
is recommended as one of the means
most effectual iu eradicating this ile--truetivo
