attention tor the words of wisdom, as
they flowed softly and gracefully, from his
eloquent tongue. His theme was Rom. 8:&J:
The death, resurrection and Intercession ol

Kermon, ior we coum not oegin to ao it jub

Phil. 3:: the Pltbef which is. "1 count all
things but loss, for the excellency of the
knowledge of Christ Jesns, my Lord; for
whom 1 have suffered the loss of all things.1
He said if writlnar out this sermon he would
bead it "Loss and Gain," and he wanted the
young men, especially, to work out this im
portant sum, and ascertain what their true
interest is. in this all absorbing subject.
This visit of the Dr., npon the Invitation of

Mnjor SjKti Explains Why He Old
To the Editor of the Herald and Mail ;
As my reasons for not responding to the
call made on me last Monday to reply to
Col. Colyar's speech may be, and I bave rea
sou to believe have been, misunderstood, It
is proper mat 4 snonia state wny 1 um not
reply on that occasion. 11 was not intend
ed as a discourtesy to those who called upon
me, nor was it Decause.i was nnwiutng to
take a position npon this all important
question. My reasons were these: On last
Friday a gentleman of this place told me
that he bad invited col. Colyar here to make
a speech, gnd he hoped I would not lnlvr-
iere witu mm anu wouiu not maae any re
ply, and give htm an opportunity to lull v I
explain his views. I said to that gentle
man mat 1 wouia cneeriuny- comply wno
his request : that I was not la politics, and
bad no desire to be so: tnal 1 had enough to
do to attend to my private and professional
business without engaging in political dis
cussions, and so far as 1 was concerned, Col.
Colyar would not be 'Interfered with by
any answer, i ne same gentleman Baia to
me Monday morning, that be bad learned
that 1 was to reply to Colyar. I told him
again that 1 would keep the promise I had
made blm, and would not reply. This
would of itself be a sufficient excuse for my
not speaking, but had I been so disposed, 1
was too sick to speak on that occasion, and
would not bave done so after my promise,
bad I been well. I might, here close this
note, but in order that I mtiy not be misun
derstood, 1 will say that 1 bave no desire to
conceal my views on this question, Iwhich I
consider paramount to all others. I am sat
isfied that a relusal to adjust our public debt
upon a fair, equitable auu tatlsfactory Ltsis,
will be the greatest calamity that can hap
pen to Tennessee and her people, not only
as to character, but In their business mat
ters and iu their moneyed affairs. 1 am fur
ther satisfied that tbe action of tbe last Leg
islature in rejecting the liberal terms otter
ed by the creditors of the State, has materi
ally atleoted our "erudit abroad, prevented
capital from coming info the State, and has
caused the money that is here not to circu
late by iiupalriogcredltand destroying con
fidence, and Is a main cause of the contin
uance of hard times. Tennessee is produc
ing more now In theaggregate and per capl
t,ln quantity aud In money value, ihau she
did in lstO, when all say we were prosper
ous, and yet money matters are tight, feuch
croaking speeches as these made by Col.
Colyar, aud men of bis stamp, by discourag
ing t he people, and destroying confidence.
are doingjgreat injury and Intensifying the
money stringency. The plea lof poverty
avails very little when we remember
that, the lesislatlou by Congress affects
all other Status as well as ouis,aud when We
remember further that Tennessee has been
less taxed since the war in proportion to ber
population and to ner productions wan
mix- suite In the Union, except Texas and
Georgia, and If she had accepted tb-3 terms
ouereu oy ner creuitors, ner taira wumu
bave boen leais than any UtaU In the Union
i,. nmnnrMon to her noDulatioh and pro
ductions. The decrease in the value of
property iu the State since ISA), when we
had slaves, has been only forty per cent af
itr fonn tin a all our losses by tbe war and
by tbe contraction ot the currency; and yet
the last i;ro'ositioii made by the creditors
which the iTegutlat'ure rejeited,Vfts tQ reduce
our public debt fifty per cent, or ten er
cent more Uian the depreciation in proper
ty. No excuse that xvill taUsfy auy reason.
.1,1. .,in ran iw f I ven whv a State like Ten
uessee should re! use to accept a reuuouuu w
a debt, I wbleb Col. Colyar admits to be Just,
and valld to the exteut of forty orflfty per
cent when offered freely by Its creditors.
T'i. rovniiiilnnii'rv measures proposed by
Col. Colyar lu his speech on Mouday, so far
trom brluglug reilel iroiu congress, wouiu
prevent all rtilief measures by showing that
tt.A i.iiuriM miidi Rffninht uu la the North
ern Slates were true lhai ye were faithless

proiesses to belong, auuot atlbid .to viol ite
uii its former pledges aud prove faithless to
0 ,,tieiiL iiriiictDlea to follow the teach
inns oi Col. Colyar. Tennessee is now in t he
crisis of her fate. What she does now win
or.ft. venerations after we bave passed
away. The discredit of a Rtate sticks lo her
as the poisoned shirt did to Nessus, and the
evils, winch result will bo permanent
aud lasting in their character. I therefore
believe It is the duty 01 every private citi
zen as well as public inau, 10 come to the
,,.' nf the State, in this her hour of trial
and of trouble.

I church, at this place, the last Sabbath of
February. The Hev. J. B. Erwin lu bis
usual gooa style, entertained his congre
tion with quite an efficient sermon. The
crowd in attendance being larger than
usual this winter. His congregations seem
always delighted however to hear him, and
whenever tbe weather nermits. eive him a
crowded house. It is becoming now quite
popular throughout the country with min
isters and lecturers to discuss tbe topic of

falling into the line of the negative. Tbe
skeptics iuourcountry are getting almost

Jacobinical rule in France during the
bloody revolution of 1730. when there was
not hing but a reign of terror for years.
Ere these items will have been published
the citizens of Maury or those in atten
dance on Ciiminal-court at Columbia will
have heard what Col. Colyar has to sav.
and holds in regard to our State debt.
From what can b3 gathered in tbe Journal-,
from his talks and sneeches be mieht be
called a repudiator. He is, without doubt.
au auie lawyer aud conducts a suit in ei
ther ol our courts through with ability, but
he is no politician, no statesman, although
he has been an office seeker for several
years and just now holds the unenviable
position 01 an omce-hunter claimed by
neither party. Also the orator from the
cedars on Flat Creek.
Major James T. Moore was looked for on
the firsts Monday to disclose his views on
the same. He is for scaling low down and
will no doubt make himself heard and have
some spicy anecdotes for the occasion,
Col. S. A. Pointer's card announcing him
self as a candidate for Governor at the next
election, and the p'an to pay the State debt
at fifty-cents seems to take with the people,
and no doubt If they could hear blm on the
nustings in regard 10 tne mode he proposes
they would be satisfied. All who know
Col. Pointer know blm to be a man of fine
financial abilities, and that w'th his own
business all through life from his youth, he
has ever succeeded well in bis financial
schemes. Such a business man would
make a good executive. His plan to pay off
the debt without any more tax is plausible
and reasonable. Retrenchment and reform
Is what the people of Tennessee need, they
have been calling for it in the Federal gov
ernment when they most needed it at
home. Any one who is posted with the
governments in the adjoining States, to
wlt: Yirginia, Kentucky, North Carolina
and Georgia, knows full weli;that too much
money is paid out to salaried officers In
Tennessee. The whole Judicial system in
Tennessee should be retrenched together
with the perquisites in the other depart
ments. Tennessee has three judwes to
where Virginia has but one. And'what
State in the Union has a prouder history or
a brighter record than the "Old Dominion?"
Where can you now nna Detter or more
learned expounders of common or civil law
than In Virginia? One judge holds a Circuit,
a Chancery, and Criminal-court combiued
iu one court. Their county courts do ail
the minor and smaller litigated matters on
the civil Slate and equity dockets, while
here the courts are crowded trom one court
to another with little cases that don't in
volve more than ihe cost of a pair of shoe-
soles. The times now demand retrench
ment and Col. Pointer before the masses on
this topic 110 doubt would sncceed with tell
ing effect; he is a close reasoner aud speaks
to tne point.

prudent to place a Southern man on tbe

sition on that ticket, unanimously by the
northern Democracy, xneiiner xnurman,

having him at tbe head of tne rxavy De

South this great lesson, that she can only
be powreful and influential in tne j ac
tional councils, but by keeping her trained
men at the front. By doing this she will re
kindle the fires of ber loriner giory anu
power, and by no other means can it be
done. If his constituency could have seen

to take him from National politics, even to

grand old State.
His line of usefulness Is In Congress. His
line of promotion is here. Here he can ben
efit his friends incalculably. Here bis In
fluence Is great and growing. These lines
are written, just to let the people of our dis
trict know tbe exact truth about this mat
ter, and with the hope that the people with
one voice will re-commission him for the

House, he will step to a commanding Na
tional position, where bis services are
greatly needed in lopping off, useless and
extrax-ngant expenditures of public money
and securing relief to a tax-ridden people.

BATILE 1 IAH OF III S THIRD.
A few days since Capt. II. K. Polk was in
conversation with Judge Bay less W. Hanno,
of Indiana, a member of the House, and
learned from him that he knew where the
battle flag of the 3d Tennessee Regiment is.
It was captured at Fort Donelson and Is
now in Indiana. Capt. Polk informed Gov.
John C. Brown of his discovery, and the
heart of the old Commander of that world
renowned corps leaped with Joy, and be in
stantly went to see Judge Hanna, -who
promised him lhaton bis return borne he
would get tbe flag and send it to Pulaski.
So the glorious veterans at their next re

the sacred old ensign kissing fie breezes,
where it first gladdened the hearts of the

like a thlel in the night, unexpectedly but
"was welcomed witb hospitable hands to a
bloody grave." i ne nouse was ran, beloxv
and above. Public expectation was great
and the excitement high. It took no one by
surprise In tbe sentiments it contained.
Everybody knew full well that this abomi
nable creature of fraud, was like clay in the
bands of the potter Hayes Is the clay and
John Sherman tho infernal potter. No
one dreamed that Hayes could rise from his
abject slavery to the will of his defaeto
Treasurer. The most marked indifference
was paid the thing, by even the bitterest
Republicans. Not a voice was heard in its
defense. Not a word of discussion was pro
voked bv its reading. It was voted down
by tweutv more than a twq-thirds, with
twenty-three absentees, who would have
swol n the adverse vote to forty -three, more
than enough to kill the brazen-faced at
tempt to stifle the voice ot 'the people.
When the sonorous tones of NeUl Brown
had died away, the Hon, S. 8. Cox remark
ex!, "that the message was a charge of fraud
by a fraud." One member by the name ol
M crook called out that he wanted Cox's
treasonous language Uken down. But no
one paid any attention to this poor minion
of fraud, who no doubt was tickling his
masier at tue w uito nouse, in tue nope 01
getting some leiiow iumi uu uuiue. 1 ne oiu-
est lniiaoiiants weio siiuea lorciuiy wnii
t)e imci, that the work was done so s need 11 v.
so determinedly and so quietly. They can
not call to mind an instance in our nistory
where a message of the Executive bas been
so unceremoniously treated. Some of the
most memoratle debates in Congressional
history were produced by the majority at
tempting to override a veto. Jackson's
Lieutenants won the eternal love of the old
hero and imperishable renown, In sustain
ing bis vetoes. Henry Clay led charges
against vetoes as brilliant in parliamentary
warfare as any of the achievements of the
mighty Napoleon on the field of battle. But
here was Hayes, deserted by the very men
who had helped him to steal his office, ex
cept Garfield the best agent that fraud and
r-orniniion have outside of Hell. Even
smilicgCbarlie Foster as sone half-hearted
Democrats delight to call him left his
side and voted Jo nail the veto of his master
to the counter. Old Townsend, the North
ern Silamander the hoary-headed old fa
natic from New Yotk after fighting against
tbe bill, voted to reject the veto. I bave no
Idea what caused this change. It is said
that he heard from hia constituents. There
has been a wonderfiil amquut of sham in
these Eastern men getting up in Congress
and crying out that their people were out
and out against the measures ol relief, be
ing pressed through by tbe Democrats. The
truth is, that there are more victims of the
ruinous and hellish financial policy of the
Republican parly up East and In the North,
t ban anywhere elite. The people ore right.
The masses are clamoring for bread and
woik, but these ro 111 ed-shirted; minions of
b inks and bondholders, misrepresent their
people just as Denny, of Maryland, Bayard,
Eaton, Kernau, Lamar and Hill misrepre
sent constituencies, who we know bave
special iy Instructed them to vote other
wise, it ! an awful calamity for such men
to be lu public life in great crises. They do
a world of mischief. If the men 1 have
named were to put their shoulders to the
wheel of reform and relief, not twenty days
would elapse before the Resumption Law
would be repeal ed eUver be reinonetlzed
without tbe dead weights, which Sherman
hadluuueuoe enough to lasien upon it the
Natioual Banks and their curreucy would
be wiped out of existence, and plenty of
Sub-Treasury notes would be Issued. Then
do you blame the friends of reform and re
lief for wishing that these false and re
creant men were dead and In heaven? It Is
a pity that either one qi tueru is a Demo
err.t. A man cannot be a Democrat and be
so false to the teachings ol the traditions of
the partr-. it was oorn 01 a terrible strug
gle, under the lead of Jefferson, analnst the
infernal ideas, that these slaves and dupes
ol the money power are aiding and abet
ting in perpetuating in mis muu. uui to
return to the veto. No sooner had the
House nut a besa on tue accursed thing.
than it. was carried over to the Senate. The
crowd rushed over and soon that chamber
was full as it could stick, from cellar to gar
ret. Directly, Lord Roscoe Conklinz arose
and in one of h'.s mos taking altitudes
asked Edmunds to snspena nis remarks np
on another measure, until he could make
an enquiry. Edmunds of course consented.
Public expectation was on tip-toe.

To the Editor of the Herali and Mail:
Tbe Santa Fe correspondent, in his last
communication, holds np the writer in a
very unenviable light, to the readers of
your vaiuable paper, so much so, that I feel
forced out with my views on this very soul
stirring and clamored-over subject. My
rale bas been on most of the du-puted sub
jects, to wnicn 1 nave given my attention
when presented in meir many tonus and
faces, to ward off the extremes, and venture
with care into the via media. On the subject
of temperance I bave been no less careful
than on other subjects, watching tbe bale
ful effects of extreme thinkers and sneakers.
I bone never to be fanatical npon auy sub

which was alluded to, I was obeying the
orders of tbe Presbytery, in the bounds of
which my work was. And if I used the
language given by your correspondent, my
memory bas failed me. 1 did not quote the
language or Paul, as given, ana 1 ouiy said
that enthusiasts upon the subject would

Dinner, ana make enrtst as a uistiiter. 1 give
the whole phrase, so that your correspond
ent wiil feel satisfied that this is tbe lan
guage we used. We mentioned tbe many
temperance organizations in their favor.
and we must believe that God has blessed
their efforts, and eternity will only reveal
their salutary effects upon our degenerate
race, ixotwitstanaing tue ciovea loot nas
been seen In them all, and men will dare
enter the sanctum sanctorum of earth, with
treacherv sbutuD in their hearts, be assum
ed the grounds that all the various temper
ance organizations and moves bave become
more ana more wild in their lorms, coming
towards the church until they would all
empty out Into the church, which would
become the great temperance home of the
world. It should be now. We are proud
that the General Assemb'y of the C. P.
Church has made it a law to require every
candidate-seeking admission into the
cnurch, to promise by God's grace to be
temperate, and to refrain from tho use of ar
dent spirits. We hope, then, to be consider
ed a loyal son of the church, when we say,
that if the church fails to make a man tem
perate, all else will fail. What can stop the
maddened wretch who would tear the
clothes from a dying child, and barter them
awayto satiate a burning thirst for liquor ?

Books in front of them,
Startled aud worried.
Worried and bothered by teacher and bell,
Forever they studied and well;
Into the jaws of examination,
Into the mouth of Failure they fell,
Fell the Sixteen Seniors,
Displayed all their sense so bare,
Displayed their faces fair.
Facing the committee there.
Stumbling with horrid questions while
Ail the committee wondered.
Plunged In ancient battle's smoke,
Right into blunders they broke.
Doubting every word they spoke,
Stuttered and blundered.
Tben they took their seats
Saddened and humbled.
Examiuations to right of them,
Examinations to left of them,
Examinations surrounding them.
Volleyed and thundered;
Worried by both teacher and bell,
While both brain aud pen worked well,
Those who could read and spell
Came through the jaws of Examination,
.tsaca irom tne mourn 01 r allure,
All owning a Sheep skin.
All of Sixteen Seniors.
When can their glory fade?
Oh ! tbe great show they made!
The audience wondered.
Honor the show they made !
Honor the lovely lessons said

It was Just cold enougn to make exercise

for snow to fail and remain. A snow fall
xvould have entailed severe loss to stock, in
some alrec Ions; but lortuuately tbe wind
veered to the South, and Instead of snow,
we had rain and a general rain.
When the change came, I could see hoar
frost transforming Into a jmmorama of en
ticing beauty al least it was beautiful for a
change, but not pleasant to think or as per
manent. The foliage was all hung with lace and
fringes of frost, aud the trees and bashes
were like scenes from fairy laud. Now we
have prosaic sunshine, aud the poetry ol

To the. Editor of the Herald and Mail:
Ou Thursday, tbe2tb of February, a good
ly number of the citizens of Lewis county
net at xxewuurg, ana were anaiessea upon
the subject of building tne Nashville and
TuRcaloosa railroad through Iwls county,
uynuu.u.11. jixiid, iir. warren ismuu,
Lawyer Sloan, of Linden, and J. W. Maves.
all of whom acquitted themselves admira
bly, especially did Mr. Smith make a most
splendid effort, showing conclusively that
witu a ranroau we nave a ricn ana aesira-
ble count ry, but without the road, we would
ultimately be anihllated. He had traveled
all over the North, West and South, and
had been upon the lofty peaks of the Rocky
Mountains uud UDon the beautiful Dlatna
of Texasand Kansas, but bad not found a
climate with natural facilities and advan
tages equal to Tennessee; said that the first
luesliou asuea oy intelligent .Northern em-
grants is, w uat are your transportation la
cilltles?"and he had assurance that If Lew
is county would build tbe railroad through.
there would soon be an emigration bere
su indent to pay the tax necessary to build
the road. Mr. Smith is an orator of no or
dinary capacity; his style is forcible, logical
anu convincing, anu almost uoius uis auui
ence, every one, spellbound. Judge Nixon s
speech was delivered with his usual earnest
and unanswerable manner; being a native
of our county, he leit quite at liberty to say
what ne pleased, and consequently aia so.
Messrs. Sloan and Maye-j gave us some
pleudld ideas, from which we expect to de
rive many benefits. The prospects of the
road are yet good, ana continue to grow
better, and wltbout(.otne unforeseen caiam
nity, we will certainly get tbe road.
