Col. SAMt'KL A. I'ointek, of Wil
liamson, is a candidate for Governor
of Tennessee. He proposes to com
promise the State debt at 50 cents on
the dollar, and pay it, principal and
interest, in twenty years, without tax
ing the people one cent. He will
doubtless canvass the State, and ex
plain his plan. He never ran for an
ofllce, but is a splendid fanner, being
very successful in all his enterprise:!.
He is known as a man who makes
money in fanning, and hates lawyers

Washington Special to the Chicago Times.
Under the keen stimulus 'of the
fepLstJes of the Chandler tramp there
are daily revived and discussed all of
the scandals of the Presidential bai
gain of last spring. This -is also ag
gravated by the related threats of the
indictment of John Sherman, General
Garfield, and others in company with
the Returning Roard crowd. This
continues to keep up a mild interest In
the present proceedings in Louisiana as
to the Presidential bargain. 1 1 is very
fcheap work this raking up evidence
to prove that which everybody believes.
The surface evidence of this bit of po
litical intrigue has lieen published over
ami over again, but names of the
prime movers in this bargain have
never been pnblished. The real origin
of the bargain lay in the poverty of
the south, lhe leaders there were
upon the verge of ruin. They- rould
not afford to tight for anybody. They
could not a fiord to wait ' four years
more for relief, and, so when they
saw the the dominant party wresting
the'fruits of victory from their hands,
they, as a class, decided to capitulate,
ana make the best terms they could.
There is not a single leader in the
whole South who is not really a par
ty to this bargain. They stand solid
iqKMi this subject to-day, and any
move to investigate, as was attempted
by Finley, of Ohio, meets with the
solid objection of all Southern men in
Every move that has lately been
made in this connection has lieen
simply and sofely to enable the solid
South to get all the aid and comfort it
can pending the time when it can
again come into power through the
success of the Democratic party- To
this end the Southern men are work
ing and striving with all the earnest
ness and vigor of a race of politicians.
The endless Ixiuisiana intrigues will
always exist. In that State it is an
endless scramble for office. All of the
agitations of the last few days is the
work of a ring of agitators here who
are seeking to gain control of the New
Orleans customhouse. John Sher
man and others may be indicted, but
it is only a bit of exaggerated bluffing
that neexl deceive no one that under
stands the motives and ambitions of
the average Louisiana patriot. They
swagger about Washington and drive
a brisk confidence gaaie with their
mysterious threats of what they know
and can tell. They swarm about the
White House and have access to the
President whenever they please. So
great has been the scandalous gossip
of late, that it would culminate in an
official investigation if it were not for

ple in congress are directly opposeu to

Washington, Feb. 4. Mr. Mc
Mahon, of Ohio, brought forward to
day the resolution of which I made
mention a few days ago, directing the
Committee on W ays and Means to
report a graduated tax on all incomes
above a raesonable minimum. The
move to suspend the rules and pass the
resolution developed a much greater
strength than even its friends had
hoped for, while to the Eastern mem
bers it was a stunning surprise. There
were 165 yeas to 88 nays, not quite
two-tnirus, bu. a majority of 77 i
aoout as emphatic an instruction as
the committee could receive. A ma
jority of the committee, namely,
lessrs. liurcnaru, Harris, Tucker,
itoinns ami unison, voted tor the res
olution. Mr. 1-ernando Wood voted
against the resolution of instruction.
but he is not opposed to incorjioratijig
such a teature in a general bill, and
it is now an open fact that the new
revenue bill will include an income
tax. It is reasonably certain that the
new bill reduce the tax on tobacco to
sixteen cents per pound, and tbnt the
taxes on the dejxisita in savings lianks
and on liank checks will be entirely
abolished. Whether the committee
will or will not include a reduction of
the whisky tax is not settled; but, If It
shall he left out, the motion can lie
made in the House to r'-duce : tfc tax
to sixty cents, The bulk of the oppo
sitiou to the income tax to-day came

A XOIZro UISACLE.
Harvellious Perfonnanea'cf aPenasyl
Mauch Chunk special to the Cln. Enquirer.
The good Catholics of this country
are thoroughly excited over a miracle
that is alleged to- have been -vrooght
upon the person of Miss Amelia Greth,
about thirty-six years of age, intelli-
fent, and a devout church woman, by
"atlier Heenan, the Parish Priest of
Mauch Chunk; -Miss Greth has been
ill a long time with consumption,1 at
tended by violent hemorrhage of the
lungs. A short time ago a lady friend
of the invalid died, ..and. Miss Greth
avowed that the ' f-p 'rit of the, former
appeared to her with the interesting
information that she was expiating her
sins in purgatory. Miss Greth there
upon avowed her willingness to suf
fer any penance by which her deceas
ed friend might be relieved. The spir
it then told her that she would die at
seven o'clock this (Saturday) morning;
and one hour afterward Father Heen
an iwould have the power of , working
the miracle of her j-esurrection in the
flesh. -" "- '' ' '
The prophecy was fulfilled, accord
ing to the testimony of apparently
truthful, however credulous, witness
es, in the withdrawal of her soul from
the body at the appointed time. Miss
Greth seemed inanimate, was uncon
scious, and perfectly powerless, phys
ically. While lying in this condition,
the body was visited and viewed
by several thousand people, who seem
ed perfectly satisfied of the verity of
her death. There was the most
intense excitement meanwhile,
and the subject engaged the attention
of the whole community. At last the
hour expired, and Father Heenan
came forward and in the presence of a
goodly number, of witnesses said: "I
will now call her." He then pronoun
ced the Christian name of the deceas
ed, Amanda," in a loud voice; there
was ho response." He then called a
second time, "Amanda!" Still there
was no response and no motion of the
corpse. A third call, "Amanda1." was
then made, whereupon- she arose to
the astonishment of the skeptical, ami
pronounced herself perfectly well. She
then dressed herself withoutdelay and
walked to church, three-quarters of a
mile away, at a rapid gait, without
assistance, but followed by a hundred
gaping spectators. She there attended
High Mass, celebrated by Father
Heenan, at which profound gratitude
was returned to.Almighty God by the
whole congregation, in view- of the
wonderful . miracle that bad. been
wrought in their midst.
Miss Greth then returned homeland
seems to be as well as ever, and boldly
announced herself the subject of a mir
acle. She declines to tell what hap
pened to nerseii while her soul was
out of her body, and doubtless will not
do so unless ordered so to do by her
spiritual adviser. Father Heenan, is
cretuted witn being the Divine lnstru

priest in good : standing, greatly be
