The State Democratic Executive
Committee met at Nashville Wednes
day. . A Convention to nominate can
didates for Judges of the Hupreme
Court was called for the 2!th of May,
at Nashville. It was determined not
now -to call a Gubernatorial Convention.
Col. A 8. Colyar will speak at the
Court House next Mondoyon the sub
ject of the IState debt. There will be
a large crowd in town, as it is first
Monday, and we trust Col. Colyar
w ill have a large audience, and be lia
tened to attentively. He is a man of
ability, and will present his side of the
Stateuebi question in the most favor
able light it can lie seen in.
We hope Col. Colyar in his speech
next Monday will answer the conclu
sive arguments made in the Legisla
' lure by J. K. Goodpasture, of Overton,
in reply to Col. Colyar, which neither
lie nor Col. Savage were able then to
answer. All that would le necessary

we can furnish it to him.

Excuse Third "Tho Poor Latsriag
Pay tea Bet V
It is sometimes said that the rich are
able to pay their taxes but that the
men who labor and who have little, or
no property sufler most from taxation.
Is this trueE- In Tennessee a thousand
dollars worth of personal property is
exempt from taxation, and this con
stitutional provision exempts a ma
jority of the people from taxation,
either fctate or.' County. But it is saia
the taxes are paid out of the produc
tions of the country. What portion of
the promrcnons. A man rents land,
and pays for rent one-third of what is
made to the owner of the land, and
retains two-thirds s for; himself. The
taxes on that land are paid out of the
third which goes to . the land-owner,
and not out of the two-thirds which
the renter retains. Or if he pays four
dollars an acre rent, and makes on the
land fifteen dollars an acre, the taxes
are paid out of four dollars eoingto the
land-owner, and not out of the eleven
remaining to him. The property of
the country 'pays the taxes in a State
like oura. If the taxes were levied up
on the productions as for instance a
tax on cotton, corn, wheat and tobac
co then tli growers of those articles
would pay the taxes: but such is not
the case with us. A. reduction, in tax
ation does -not decrease the rent of
land, nor does it increase the wages of
labor, as may be seen now, for al
though thev taxes are only ten cents
on the hundred dollars, the poor la
boring meii get no benefit from this
reduction. The poll-tax does -not go
to the payment or debts, or to the sup
port of the State Government, but to
common schools. It is right that pro
lerty should e taxed to pay the debt,
for property got the benefit of the debt
and will continue to get it. . The in
creased wealth caused by the debt
is five times, at least, the amount of
the debt, and yet it is utrange that
some of the parts of the State that re
ceived he most benefits are most op
posed to paying. All that is said about
oor mcu'a household good or irovis
ions being sold to pay bondholders, is
without any foundation in truth, and
can only deceive the most ignorant.
Whilst ttwproperty n Stat must
pay Its dcbt,1f ids ever paid, it is also
true that a failure to pay the debt will
injure the property to a much greater
extent than tlte amount of taxes nec
essary to 'pay the debt, by keeping
away all immigration, preventing im
provement, and putting a stop any in
troduction of capital or money into the
State, as may seen by comparing re
pudiating witn debt paying states.

V7. C Whltthorne for Congms.
An "Old une VWiig," in your pa

we ought again to return w. C. Whit
thorne to (.Congress, for good and sulli
cient reasons given by the Writer. I
wish, as an Old Line Democrat, to en
dorse what was said by "An Old Line
Whig." - Gen. Whitthorne has been
in Congress for several terms, and the
longer lie stays the more useful to his
constituents and to bis country he be
comes. no has or can do more than
lie has done in reforming the Navy
Department, and saving millions to
the Government every year? He is
thoroughly with and for the people on
the questions of silver remonetization,
of the repeal of the Besumption Act,
ond the substitution of Greenbacks for
National Bank Notes. The object in
sending men tor Congress is that they
may benefit the country, nt for their
personal advantage, and who. In this
view, will do better than W. C Whit
thorne? Let the whole District unite
upon him without a dissentinsr voice.

to a meeting of the freshman-class ath-

hid near the room of the two men, on
the second floor of the Mansion House
nearly opposite the college campus
About eleven o'clock the two ' sopho
mores went to the room. They' jvere
seized and gagged, their heads shaved,
and they were asked to sign an hum
ble apology for maltreating the fresh
man. "Sign it or it will be worse for
you," said the leader, 'ihe (sopho

could extract nothing but defiance
from the sophomores, and at length
they "were forced to leave them, gag

and getting hastily into their clothing,
grabbed revolvers and pursued. They
discharged a barrel apiece as a 'igal'
to the other sophomores, . anl; then
went on. They overtook the fresh
men -at the University Hptel," and,
leveling the weapons, called 5 on i the
.freshmen to halt. The order w-aslrbt
obeyed, and Atterbury fired. The
freshmen wheeled and, producing re
volvers, returned the fire. From ten
to twenty shots were exchanged, and
then Atterbury cried to Carter, "I'm
shot," and fell. The freshmen scat
tered in all directions, aud out of sight
in a twinkling. . Dr. Y ickolt was got
out of bed, but he refused to probe for
the ball by artificial light. Atterbury
was taken to his room, and a throng
of sympathizing classmates surround

cian, after careful probing, extracted
the ball, which had entered the loft
