wishes Ohio had Scnatorships for

v k print to-day the sulstance of
the remarks of our able H;'presentative
and Floater, Hon. .1. L. liulloek and
Hon. Camphell liiowii, last Monday.
Mr. 1! lilock'! fp.H'ch was a hold and
imiiu-wcrUiIe defen.-e of his course in
the Legislature, and against repudia
tiofi. He is one of the most jwipiilar
iiii-ii in the county, and the masses
of the people have confidence in him
as their friend. His utterances had a
most sahitory effect, and the hearty
applause he received showed that he
was right in counting oh the people
heing against repudiation. The 8jeech
of Major JJrown was also an ahle one,
and waa equally as well received. His
criticism of the Legislature, though
caustic and severe, Was just and true.
Ths causes of the disgraceful failure of
the legislature to settle the momeni
tous question before it, were correctly
conceived and forcibly given. Maj.
Jirowu has given by this speech ad
ditional evidence of his ability, and
goo I sound, practical sense. We can
not close, however, without remark
ing that it is a great pity, and almost
amounting to a dereliction of duty,
that tiiese gentlemen, who have so
forcibly shown their ability as leaders
of public opinion, did not make some
such Iwhl and vigorous speeches dur
ing the extra session of the Legisla
ture. We siipposc we will have to ex
cuse them on the score of modesty.

Our trip here was dull and uninter
oting, due in a great measure, to the
cold weather and the snow, which
made all the country look exactly
alike. Mr. Jesse S. Harris relieved
the monotony of travel by nursing
the poodle dog of a beautiful young
lady, from Pittsburg to Harrisburg.
Mr. Harris is one of the handsomest
and most popular men here. He

I went the first night after our arri
val, to Lincoln Hall, to see the con
vention of women assembled here
from all the States and Territories to
have a 1'! Amendment tacked oiv the
Constitution to allow the gentle sex to
vote. It was a novel and disgusting
Mght to me, to see women, in all sorts
ol' costume, with hort hair white
, and black freedom siirickness, on a
Mage making fools of themselves. In
some thiiigs, they are right. For in-
Mance, in the matter of the same com
pensation for their laUir as men get;
and being employed in places, they
can till, lint, when they imscx them
selves and clamor for sutl'rago aud po
sitions in legislative U)dies, thev do
an injustice to their sex, which is ir
reparable. They went in a body thi
morning to the Senate and asked for
admission. Jtisa noteworthy fact,
that Sargent and Hoar were the
i-hampions of these Amazons in the
Senate. ( .rand old 1 liMnnan, true to
the memory of his mother, said he
was opposed to the whole business.
The Senate adjourned over until Mon
day to get rid of the vixen. In the

met ibis morning and furnished me
with the long desired privilege, of
seeing the t-rcat men of the nation of
lsitli parties. Wood's resolution to
continue the investigations of the past
administration was the order of the
d;t. The It 'publicans were in full
force and the Democrats were cursed
absenteeism to such an extent that
Wood was forced to move an adjourn
ment. He seems to have gone into
the liylit, without having first count
ed noses. The Democrats have suf
fered a good deal lately by the alsence
of memhers, at critical junctures. J
confess I jot as ma 1 as a w'et hen,
when 1 heard the jeers and taunts uf
(Jartield, Hale, Foster and others.
Jen. Whittliomc relieved the situa
tion by one of his moves, which show
ed hi:n to be a natural lorn leader.
It happened in this way: Foster of
fered an amendment to Wood's bill
to have an examination made into
the expenditures of the sums for the
investigations of the last Congress,
saying, that he knew of an instance
where dead-beats had la-en summoned
to Washington as witnesses, who
knew nothing, in order to claim their
attendance as such and thereby py
their way to the Centennial. Hewil
ami others called for the names. Fos
ter refused to give them. Whitthorne
i -11" red an amendment to include ths
expenditures of the -I0;h, -list, -liaid,
and -I !rd Congresses, staling that the

Wood's line of battle was re-established.
For the first time I heard the
leaders of both aides. Garfield is de
cidedly the ablest man on the Repub
lican side. He is a good speaker.
Hale is a good speaker. N. P. Banks
disappointed me. He is a small man
intellectually and not as large physi
cally as I expected to see. Fernando
Wood looks like John Browne,
the merchant tailor of Nashville.
C inger is the course wit of the House.
Clymer is a fine talker. J. Randolph
Tucker captured me. He is a fine
looking fellow, ami tossed N. P.
Banks high in the air. He is a meet
glorious eaker, clear and vehement.
He went for the Republicans in away
that did my soul good. Sunset Cox
apjieared in the house, with face
shaven except his mustache, which
adds, they say, to his appearance.
He sailed into the Republicans in a
splendid manner interspersed with
wit of the first water I like him.
Randall is not as large a man as I ex
pected to see. He is a little stoops
shouldered. lOden was in the Chair
and Randall walked around among
the pages and members in a quiet
way free and easy with all. He is a
great man, and will achieve higher
honors in his party yet. I have not
lieen inthe Senate, but will go to hear
Voorhees speak on the "Dollar of the
Daddies," and report in full. Senator
Harris has promised to give me a
chance then and on all occasions
when I want to visit his chamber.

shipsof three of the most important
committees of the House are filled by
her sous. They are men of weight
with the party. This shows the im
portance of keeping men here for
years. Atkins worked up to the front,
on the Appropriation Committee.
Whitthorne on the Naval Committee.
Bright on the Committee on Claims.
The North has kepts its men in public
life, until they are master workmen.
A stranger can tell in a moment, the
old members, by the power and influ
ence they wield. The South is wak
ing up to this thing. If sho wishes to
get benefits from the Government,
and have influence here, she must
keep her men in office who have
shown capacity to learn and have
learned the art of legislating. A man
is of no worth here, until ho has serv
ed three or our times. When he has
done this, then he is ready to do good
work for his people. It takes a man
with a head on to hold his own
in the House. It makes a
man feel proud of his State to see her
sons take front positions. Our State
has a grand Democratic delegation,
and they ought to be kept here until
the great battle of the redemption of
the country has been fought and won.

To the EJUor of the Ib-niH and Mail:
The country is again looking for

earlier life, to his present heroic efforts
in their behalf at the national Capitol

ot his life to our service; he has never

Wlat Our Floater, Campbell Bravn, Has
to Say About the Extra Session.
Hon. Campbell Brown, our able and
worthy Floater, made a speech last
Monday in the court-house in Colum
bia, to his constituents. He spoke
sulstantially as follows:
Fellow-citizen: The Fortieth Gene
ral Assembly of the State of Tennessee
has met three times; the regular ses
sion ami the two extra sessions have
passed into history and nothing has
been done to meet thejust exiectations
of tiie eople. Alreauy the object of
well deserved ridicule, this legislature
will be remembered only for its utter
inability to rise to the importance of
the occ;usion that presented itself, and
for its frivolous aud childish treatment
of the greatest question ever ottered to
the consideration of any deliberative
assembly in Tennessee.
The State debt was the chief issue in
the last canvass; it was fully and elab
orately discussed in the regular ses
sion, and when the extra session was
.called by the Governor, there was in
the minds of the jieople a general ex
pectation that a compromise woidd be
made. That this expectation was rea
sonable and proper, and that we ought
to be held to the strictest accountabili
ty for our failure to meet it, I frankly
admit. I propose to give, what you
have a right to demand at my hands,
a plain statement that have placed us
in our present unenviable and danger
ous situation, to show by whom and for
what ends the escutcheon of Tennes
see'has been blotted, aud the first stain
fixed uiou her hitherto unsullied hon
or. In doing this I shall use plain
language, and attribute the actions of
men to the mast obvious motives,
even though they be not those as
signed by themselves. V lion you did
me the honor, last year, of nominat
ing and electing me witliou t a com
petitor," it was upon the strongest
State credit platform, buice then I
have received no instructions from
vou, and have needed none, for I felt
sure that in standing up firmly for the
honor and credit of Tennessee, I was
reflecting tlie wishes of my constitu
ents, ami truly representing the hon
esty , the intelligence ana tlie upright
ness of the two magnificent counties
that had chosen me. 1 shall make
no further reference to my own record,
fellow-citizens, .than simply to say
that every power of mv mind and
body has been exerted to prevent the
ignominious and dishonest conclusions
finally reached, livery vote 1 gave,
every word I spoke was aimed direct
ly at the acceptance of the compro
mise, and if I appear sometimes in
strange company, such as that of Col.
Savage and Mr. Tolley, vim will find
that the staunchest friends of State
credit are with me, and that they
came tous. and not we to them
Jt will be remembered that shortly
before the close of the regular session,
we sent a joint Commission of the two
Houses to ew lork to meet certain
arbitrators selectedthere. Not by the
creditors themselves, but by a meeting
of the New York merchants and busi
ness men, held at the Clearing House
in January 1877. and requested to act
as arbiters between the several South
ern States that were heavily indebted
and the holders of their bonds. A
great mistake, as I think, was made
by some of the friends of a compro
mise in electing Col. Savage, the spe
cial Champion of repudiation, as a
memlier of this Commission, and by
the other memliers of it in making
him chairman. This put the Legis
lature in a false light before the ieo
ple and gave repudiation a seeming
endorsement to which it was not en
titled. The sending a Commission at
all was a victory to the State credit
party, but the victory was more than
neutralized by this unfortunate error,
which moreover looked much like a
slap in the face of the bondholders.
Nevertheless a proposition for compro
mise at ; on tiie dollar of our out
standing lionded indebtedness was
made, on which the Legislature failed
to take action at its regular session,
because the proposition came near the
close of the session, liecause some ol-
jection was made to tlie authority of
tlie arbiters, and tiecause it was gener
ally understood and expected that we
should be called together again when
ever the proposition was positively
endorsed by a good numlier of the
bondholders. The call for an extra
session therefore, could not have been
a surprise to any one, nor was the
subject we were to consider in any
sense new or unfamiliar. But from
the first moment of our meeting, all
manner of captious objections were
raised, and it soon became evident
that the O'.t cent, proposition would be
reiected. In this emergency, the
bondholders showed a liberal and rea
sonable spirit, authorizing the Gover
nor to make a proposition to settle at
5!) cents on the dollar. In order to
avoid some technical objections that
had been made, and to put an, end to
a great deal of windy rhetoric aimed
at the supposed attempt or (tov. 1'or
ter in his first call to limit the action
of the legislature, it was thought best
to adjourn the first extra session and
call another to consider the new prop
osition. But before doing this the
Legislature was thoroughly canvassed
by meiuners and a considerable ma
jority in both Houses were rcjorted as
reaily to support the new proix'suion
lu the lower House the members thus
pledged was variously estimated at
from 41 to 48. When it came to the
test we could never muster over 35.
Who the nine or ten members were
that thus wavered, and on one pre
text or another defeated the compro
mise, I cannot now tell. 1 blush to
say they were Democrats. They held
the balance of power in their own
hands, and a(; any day during the
eighteenth of our second session,' cquld
have set tied the State debt so far as our
House was concerned. That they,
and thev alone, could have done so, I
propose to prove n a very few words,
f here were 7 members in the House,
all present. Of these lo wore ltepub-
ncans, and two jnuepenuenw. An
old gentleman named Alexander was
elected in place of A. A. Freeman,
11 -publican, but no party seemed wil
ling to claim him. He voted with
the repu'liators. Tittle, l ag also one
member of the Colyar party, Cql. A.
S. Colyar. The rest, 50 in all, were
elected as Democrats. About IK) of
tjje' were recognized as State credit
men'. About 4 doen followed Col.
Savage in favor of'oheforn or another,
of repudiation. Four or five wander
ed oll'on the hobby of paying the debt
in State warrants, and the rest kept
very qutei tm to their views. Of the
15 ltepublieans 14 voted from fiist to
last in favor of the proposition of the
creditors, ami one against it. There

majority and pass what was known
as the rnerson inn, accepting me
proposition as it came to us, and the
thing wan hotiu-i., 1 nose votes we
could never get. But you may uk
why did we not make some conces
sions, so as to meet tne views ot those
who would not come to us? A tall
came from the Senate rdil'-ng the

itv asked by tue ciediiors. that of
. . - 1
making tlie coupons receiva tile in pay
ment of taxes. But to this there were
several grave olyections. Inthe liist
piace, it was not the proposition of the
reditors, anu nv-ru was no reason 10
lielieve it would be accented by them:
as the reduction of interest and the re
fusal to accept couioiis for taxes
would materially reduce the value of
of Jin Inmds.say one third or more be
low their Wtpr. Jn the next place,
ot one of the Kepubht,ai,s would vote
r it, and it was doubtful If enough
additional members could le drawn
from the othersideto replace their, loss. '
Moreover it was a dictation by the
majority from the first day of the ses
sion to the last. Yet they would do
nothing, nor would they allow us to
do auj-thing. The pretext (not the
reason) for their refusal to accept the
compromise oll'ered us, was that the
rateof interest was too high, that the
State could not allbrd to pay six per
cent, on half her debt. But on the
last working day of the session, they
carelessly and unexpectedly to them
selves passed a bill proposing to com
promise at four per cent, interest, and
I never saw people in greater conster
nation than they were. Just then
down came from tlie Senate a resolu
tion to adjourn ni,tc die, and it was
beautiful to see how they jumped at it
as a relief from thejiossibJe consequen
ces of their own actions. They didn't
want to compromise on any terms, at
least their leaders did not, and they
were afraid they had come near doing
it. Let me show you how contempti
ble was the plea that the State could
not pay the interest. Had the debt leeii
compromised at 50 cents, we should
have owed, in round numbers, $11,
600,000. interest on this amount at six
per cent. $!K,0i0, and at four per cent.
?4.'14,(XK), saving by reduction of inter
est $:232,000. Now the jopulation of
Tennessee is over a million and a
quarter, so that the saving these gen
tlemen proposed to make, is less than
twenty cents per head ! Twenty cents
per head! A magnificent price, truly,
for which to barter the honor and
commercial standing of the State of
Tenuessee ! Why, gentlemen, Ksau's
mess of pottage was worth double the
money ! But Ksau was, at least, con
sistent. These gentlemen have not
that merit. There is one tax, and but
one, paid by the really poor people of
the State - the poor whom they pre
tend to be so anxious to relieve, the
thousand dollar exemption of person
ality covers the personal property of
every poor man, and of many who are
not ioor, and 110 man pays taxes on
land unless he owns it. lu tact, the
property tax is paid, so far as I can
learn, by only about one-fifth of the
persons whose names appear 011 the
tax lists, throughout the Mtate, anu
thev are the people who are conipara
tively well-to-do in the world. The
realiv poor man pays but one tax, the
poll tax, and from the beginning of
the regular session to the end ot 11 le
second extra session, not one voice
was raised to relieve him of cren
twenty cent of this. Have I not a
right to question the sincerity of men
who talk much of their love to the
poor man, claim that they, and . they
only, are the ioor man's friends, and
by way of Keeping nun, leave his tax
es (reasonable enough in my opinion
but outrageous fis thev profess) un
touched, and proceed to lift a burden
oft' the shoulders of the only men who
are best able to bear it, anil who ought
to bear it the men who own the prop
erty tenehtted by the improvements
for which the State debt was incurred
The true causes of the failure to ad
iust our debt, are not obscure, nor far
There were among us about a dozen
office seeking politicians, some of
them chronic disorganize!-, who had
been reieatedly reiected by their thjo-
pie, and knew that the only chance
for them'was a general break-up of
parties, and the obliteration ot the
present party lines and party discip
line. Others, generally younger and
comparatively innocent, who saw or
fancied, that the cry ot repudiation
was iopular just now, and thought
they were placing themselves at the
head of a grand movement that would
bring them into power, ihese coin
manded enough followers, and exert
ed enough influence to make the con
test close and doubtful, and it was
turned against us by the adroit lobby?

One J. J. McKinnon, ashrewd, ras

McKinnon was ostensibly very anx

I talked with William F.. Chandler
on the motive and effect of his recent
letter. Chandler is a Concord boy,
and a Republican since I80G. He
married a daughter of the late John
P. Hale. It has lieen said thatChand
ler's grievance consists in his failure
to obtain the Spanish mission, to
which he was urged by his wife, who
was ambitious to return to Madrid,
where she had lived when her father
was Minister. "I happen to know,"
said one of Chandler's most intimate
friends in New Hampshire, "that
there was not a day between Hayes's
inauguration and'the appearance of
Chandler's letter when Bill could not
have had a foreign mission of Hayes
for asking. He has no grievance. I
have known him since he was a boy,
and I never knew a man with firmer
fixed convictions, or more fearless in
"I published the letter," said Chan
dler himself, "liecause I wanted to
clear myself of the odium tuat at
taches to Hayes's bargain with the
Democrats. There is odium about
h; title, in tlie fiivt place, and
about the Iwirgain in the second place.
It is enough to carry the first. Ifl
had waited until the whole party was
up and in arms against Hayes, it
would have been too late."
"Have j'oti seen Gen. Hoy 11 ton's re
ply to your letter?,' .
"Yes. It is very weak. He says
that there was no bargain, only a mu
tual declaration of intentions. But
that was a bargain, because the fulfill
ment of Hayes' iatentions was made
to depend upon the fulfillment of the
other party's intentions. I declare
my intention to put a $500 note on the
mantelpiece. You declare your inten
tion of doing this or that for me pro
vided you liud a $500 note on the man
telpiece. I put the money there and
walk out. You find it, and do the
work desired. That's no bargain. It
is only a declaration of intentions."
"What do you mean by the odium
that attaches to Hayes's title?"
"Because I helped to save Florida
and acted as junior counsel with the
four eminent gentlemen- who argued
Hayes's case before the commission
that counted him in, people who be
