A correspondent of C'ouricr-.Toiiriittt
nays Dr. John li. Read, of Tuscaloosa,
Alabama, is the real inventor uf the
lU:.Yiour .Supplement. It is full of
interesting matter. Daniel W. Voor
liics's great speech is well condensed ;
unorthodox views of liell are given,
and many other items of interest.
The .St. Ijouis 77;tc copies a porlion
of Maj. CiimplK-ll I'.rown's speech de
livers! here; in which he fears the dis
ruption of tliej Democratic party in
Tennessee, and predict the utter de
feat of the repudiation ists. The I'imcs
pays: "The recent action of the leg
islature of -Tennessee in refusing to
adopt any terms of, settlement with
landholders it is feared in some quar
ters will lead to a wholesale repudia
tion of the debt, which would be a de
plorable misfortune to the State.
Postmaster Key says if the "hon
est party" in Tennessee want him to
ran for (Jovernor, he would lc"greatly
tempted to leave" his present high
(but fraudulent) position in the cabi
net, and make the right against repu
diation: He is a pretty creature to be
talking about leading an "toncxt"
party ! The idea of a man who left
his party, without change of convic
tions, and entered the cabinet of a
President whom he had just denounced
ns fraudulent the idea of such a turn
coat leading the "honest party" in
Tennessee, is too ridiculous to talk
alxut. It is the height of impudence.
It Is sarcasm of the first water. No,
Mr. Key the "honest party" in Ten
nessee can take care of itself without
you. You had I tetter stay where you
ret and enjoy the fruits of your treach

like Arncll or Hughe, than Deserter

Tha Wrssg to Ourselves.
Till-: Nashville Ann -rirttn has re
cently contained some very able arti
licleson the subj-et of our State debt.
Unlike its position on other great jKilit
ical questions, it stands out boldly and
manfully against the irreat crime of
Repudiation. It says repudiation
would 1" but a temporary wrong to
the State's creditors, but to ourselves
the wrong would le lasting. We
quote a pregnant paragraph from a
"Now the oilier question conies up.
There are those who imaiuethat now
is (lie lime to alsoIvc ourselves from
of l-onds obligat ion ; to snap the tie of
faith which binds us to tlie world; to

be sn:mNd asunder as to juiblic crcdi

The I'ct, if it is done, will bear its le
Kiiiuiale fruit. In vain do we aspire
in vain build colleges, schools, church
es in vain seek to instil morality,
virtue, love for law and order; respect
for obligations, if we thus strike down
obligations and good faith. It is not a

A. 3. Colyar's Attaei upon the Press, Pub
lic Ilea and Pecpla cf Tennessee.
"We would not object to publish the
0UlM'"C speech of A. S. Colyar on tlie
State le.. oiu-stion, if it were not so
long, and so 'mu.-.1? t it of a mere ir
sonal charactor. We will vivv its sa
lient jxtints, however. He sets oT'1 1'.V
admitting the validity and justice of
the State debt, of the whole debt and
not merely of a iKrtion of it. He says
it has liecii too often rt gnied to lie
now disputed. He then says that nul
lic creditors have no right to touch the
.corpus of the propel ty of a State, but
merely the income. He then says that
the reason why Mississippi was censur
tsl, and justly censured, for the repu
diation of her public debt, was 1m -cause
sIie was able to pay and refused. He
then savs Tcnucssce is unable to pay
her debt, and that sl.e has Ix-cn ren
dered so by tlie policy of the Federal
(iovemmciit in contracting the cur
rency, and bringing everything to a
gold basis, lie gives illustrations to
show the extreme poverty ot the peo
ple of Tennessee, and contends that
Jhey are consuming yearly more than
the' p"oducc; that they have not sulli
! .ot ''nnI to cat nor clottics to wear;
so grossly misrepresents our State and
our people; that it utterssueh unfound
ed calumnies upon some of tlie purest
and lest men of Tennessee; who will
be remembered with gratitude and af
fection when A. S. Colyar is forgotten
or remembered only to be despised.
The people of Tennessee are not such
mendicants as A. S. Colyar represents
them to be.
Such speeches as that of A. S. Col
yar, if lielieved, would do more to in
jure our State, and drive away from
us all capital, than taxes three times
enough to pay the interest upon the
public debt. Who would to come to a
State, such as A. S. Colyar descriltes
Tennessee to Ik?, when he says a careful
examinarion of the census reports will
show that but few States are worse oft
than we are; and when he says that
our public press is corrupt, our states
men "paid party leaders," and our
people reduced to beggary and starva
tion. 1 le says that our public men and
newspapers who advocated State cred
it are controlled by the money ower,
when it is known that all or nearly all
the newspapers and public men who
advocate State credit, are opposed to
the forced resumption of specie pay
ments, in favor of remonetizing silver,
of reducing the tariff, and, in fact, of
all the relief measures now proposed
in Congress; and one of their strongest
objections to State repudiation is that
it will tend to defeat these very relief
niea-sures which they consider of such
vital importance to the whole country.
It is most true that those who charge
all other men with corruption, judge
others by themselves, and are most
certain to be corrupt.
We consider Mr. Colyar's speech a
wanton and outrageous attack,
not only upon the press and public
men of Tennessee, but UjKm all the
people of Tennessee, which it is their
duty, no less than their interest, to
resent, and therefore in behalf of the
people we have written this article.

To the Eilitor of the llrndd antl Mail:
The Hkkaijj ANiiMAii.of the ISth,
commenting on the remarks of Mr.
Mullock and myself last Monday, uses
the following language:
"We cannot close, however, with
out remarking that it is a great nitv.
and almost amounting to a dereliction
of duty, that these gentlemen, who
have so forcibly shown their ability as
leaders ot public opinion, did not make
some such Isild and vigorous sjH-eches
miring the extra session of tlie legis
lature. We suppose we will have to
excuse them on the score of modes
If I had allowed modesty or any
other personal feeling to interfere with
my duty to the State I should deserve
the severest censure but it is not
mainly to make any personal explana
tion that I write yon your article re
minds ni that 1 overlooked last Mon
day, one of the chief embarrassments
of the State Credit Democrats in the
last Legislature, namely, the necessity
of great caution and mildness on this
part in dealing with the questions be
We earnestly desired a settlement of
the debt. It was manifestly not to the
interest of the Republican party that
we shouli lie jible to make one, but
consistency and policy alike required
them to support it. On the othe'
hand nothing would have pleased the
Rcpudiators more than to In- able to
assign tlie f.iillire to settle to any im
prudence, intolerance or extravagance
on our part. Placed thus U-fween
two (ires, in danger of driving ofl' Iter
publican support on the one side and
of alieiiatingand forcing into the arms
oftherepudiators those whom we hoped
to draw to us on the'other. Circumstan
ces seemed plainly to dictate as our pol
icy the greatest possiblejprudence and
moderation. Moreover the Rcpudia
tors early in the session developed as
their plan of campaign a policy of dil
lay by sjcaking against time, by de
T"ry motions, by defecting side is
sues in sti-"vt hlJ tlii' means known
in 'parliamentary tactics; enough
speeches were made on out" ."dc t
bring all the facts and arguments
plainly before the Legislature; more
would have wasted the time of House
and played the game of our adversa
ries. While every additional speech
might otleiid or drive oft" some itossi
ble suporter. This was the view ta
ken at the time by myself and others.
Personally it would have been a great
pleasure to me to have used plain lan
guage in the House with regard to
the probable results of the course our
opponents were icrsuing. Politically,
I believe it would have been a mis
take. With notolitic-al future to look
forward to and no desire for one, I
acted, as I believe did every State
Credit Democrat in the Legislature, to
tlie .,,0st of my judgment for the in
terest of the State. If we erred Ju our
line of jolicy (and certainly our mod.
eration and considerate treatment
were neither appreciated nor recipro
cated by our opponents) it wan a mis
take of judgment not a sin of inten
tion. Rut I believe we were right,
and that the failure to settle could not
have liecn averted by any action we
might have taken.
Yours very truly,
" C7S WASnHTSTON LETTER.
Washington, Jan., 15, 1878.
Major Jesse S. Harris, V.. O. Mar
buall, Ksquire, (Judge) and myself,
loard in the mansion of Mr. Birth,
No. 200 Third Street, Jf. AV. It is a
house with ierbaps, more history con
nected with it, than any other private
edifice in this city. Mr. Birth's fath
er was a stone-cutter ami raised three
lx)ys up to that trade. With his own
hands he cut the marble mantlings in
the rooms. AVhen built, it was con
sidered the finest house in. the ; city.

loarded here, M-heii they were the
leaders of that grand old Party, whose
memlKrs, later in its history, set aside
these Titans, on the miserable plea of
availability, fierce boarded here, be
fore he became lTesident. Tradition,
says, that yielding to the calls if his
social nature, he got into such free
and convivial habits, that his wife
came here and forced him to resign
and took him home. Did the good
lady ever suppose, that in the future,
he would return as President?
Cilly occupied the room just almve
ours, l-rom it, he went out to meet
Wraves in a duel, at Bladensburgh.
To it, he was brought back thence to
be carried to the lone spot, where he
sleeps his last long sleep.
The family is a charming one and
the "good wife," is a motherly and
kindly being, whose greatest desire is
to make eveay one pleasant and com
fortable. To-day, I went to hear Daniel W.
Voorhies on "Dollar of the P'athers."
The galleries were jammed and packed
and many; very many could not get
In. The Senate seemed to know that
a big crowd would be in attendance,
for the Senators had on their faultless
linen and looked their best. Voorhies
is the "Great Thunder Pipe" of the
West. For once the jieople were
heard in a Chamber, which is farther
est re move I from them. Conkling
looked as if the Western Orator were
an intruder at first but very soon he
dropped everything and paid undivid
ed attention. 1 didn't like the way
ISayard and Kernan looked. In fact
the entire Kast was indiflerent. I try
very hard to respect theKastern Dem
crats, bat utterly break down when I
see their manifestations on finances.
Voorhies is a magnificent orator. In
his tone he reminds me a great deal of
a key or so, in the tone of the voice of
Col. Ed. (iolladay, of Ilmnan. He
will say "report" exaetlyliketiolladay.
His plea was a manfy and earnest
one for the plundered poor.
He showed plainly that the authors
of the gold bill of March, lSti!), the
Refunding act of 1800, the act of 1873,
demonetizing silver, and the resump
tion act of 1873, were the true and
only repudiators. Mow and then, we
had magnificent bursts of oratory.

Many mcnilers from the other House
came over and many Senators crowd

ris were particularly attentive. You
mustn't this sjieeeh and read it. The
loor people of this country, the mid
dle classes and all tax-payers should
have it circulated hy the thousands.
It produced applause. When he closed
a magnificent lioquet was pre
sented to lii in and many Senators and
Representatives hurried forward and
congratulated him. Senator Railey
made a very fine speech on the day
lefoie. This was his first apiearance
in "public on the stage" in the Sen
ate. It is a splendid legal argument
and has been greatly praised. It is
understood that Senator Harris will
sjieak soon. When he oik-iis "the
trumpet will giveiiouncertain sound."
If nothing happens I shall he there to
hear the big man of Tennessee. The
committees have gone to work in

When about tun teen years oi age, alter a

I'earl ot great prize, t rum that hour reliit

boy, theu sixteen, took his place in business.

Milton jNetiy, in all respects, was a model
