On our first page is an able article
from one of the ablest of American
newspaers, on the "1 louse of Repre

interests every voter, and all should
read it. It shows something of the
workings of Congress, and how much
more valuable is an oKl Representative
who has been there for years than
a raw, new nieiuU-r. Its statements
are unassailable, because they are true.

Prof. A. "Winchell, formerly a lec
turer in Vanderbilt University, pub
lished in the Nashville American of
last Sunday, a letter lieaded -"f-k-ience
Jagged in Nashville, in which he
criticised Bishop McTyeirc and other'
eminent Methodist t Nashville, for
tuminghiin out of his office. He repeats
a private conversation between him
self and liishop McTyeire just prior to
Ills dismissal, and doubtless misrepre
sents the liishop on several points.
l'rof. Winchell says he was dismissed
on account of ""hetherodoxy" on the
subjectof niau's creation, lie had re
cently published a look called "Ad
amite and Pre-Adamite." Dr. Win
chell maintains in this discussion, by
all the laws of progression, that the
negro race is not degenerated from the
white man's Adam. To affirm other
wise would be to establish a law of re
trogression. The search for the an
tiquity of the human species is, there
fore, he insists, a search for the antiqui
ty of the black races a search wluch
must be instituted in the regions
which the black .races have occupied,
Africa, Australia and obliterated con
tinental lands a search which must
become purely geological, since these
races have left no records, no monu
After sneering at "doctors high in
authority," the learned Professor says:
1 maintain, against the narrow
and pernicious dogma that the IJible
id tailheient everywhere to interpret
itself, that, on the contrary, it was or
dained to lie interpreted under the
concentrated light of all the learning
which has been created by a (lod-giveii
intelligence in man. 1 lielicve that
the Hible was written for all time, and
that its meaning is so deep anil so
rich that the accumulated learning of
the latest generation of men will bo
unable to exhaust it."
On the subject of the negro's inferi
ority to the white race, Prof. Win
"JUit when this inferiority is conce
ded, we always hear the' appeal to
unfavorable coHditions. This leads
me to note, the. African continent has
always lieen favirrajh conditioned.
In the first place, it has a land con
nection with Asia and the seats of an
cient civilization. It even had a re
mote civilization planted within its
iHM'ders: and the fires of Kgyptian civ
ili.ation have never lieen extiuct;
while for two thousand years the en
lightenment of Europe h:is been with
in accessible distance. Jn the second
place, the salubrity of the climate, the
fertility of the soil, the vast hydro-
graplne system of Jakes and rivers
have all conspired to give the interior
i I of the continent natural conditions

Africa have suiplied other condition
or human advancement.
The Egyptian civilization
reared on the African continent by
the side of the banwirous Nero, and
under the same conditions. If the
materials of civilization were intro
duced from Asia, it was certainly
easier for the Negro to introduce them
This is mere assertion. Prof. Chaile
Long, who explored the Nile sources
and wrote an interesting account of
his travels, said in a recent lecture
that Africa can never lie civilized by
missionaries, liecanse white men can
not live in that malarial climate
simply impossible for tehra to do so.
And yet Winchell says "the African
continent has always Ix'en faromM
conditioned:" The truth is, this so-
called sen ntist, like his brethren gen
erallv, asserts a supposition, and de
mands that it le accepted as a fact
and builds anruniepts mioii it. We
have only seen Winchell' side of thi
Controversy, and do not know the
real cause of his removal, but we feel
assured that the eminent and worthy
men at the head of Vanderbilt are not
guilty of the injustice complained of
by the Professor. Prof. Winchell i
especially severe on Dr. Summers,
one of the lcst and kindest of men
and his whole letter is evidently a
one-sided, unjust criticism of good
men. He was secured to do such work
in Vanderbilt University as they
thought it iieedel, and because he
failed to meet their just expectations
he was removed. Hence these tears
or rather this passion. Prof. Winchell'
lH)k teaches, practically, that the ne
jrro has no part in the redemption of
Christ. This doctrine is a inonstrou
one to Southern Methodists, who have
always admitted negroes to a full
share of Christ's atoning blood, and
preached to them, and administered
the sacrament of the Iioid's Supper to
them. We retn'at, that this Northern
man, Wine-hell's doctrines on thi
subject are monstrous in the eyes of
Southern Methodists, and they could
not submit, to his continuance in their
great Central University, without
stultification, mortification and dis
honor. Prof. Winchell is a Northern
man, and has no real sympathy for
the negro. While this is true, we
trust that the Trustees of .this great
central institution will not allow it to
lose its secular feature, and become
purely theological school, for its own
denomination, ia-i u no wuat it is
fast getting to be, the great "st Uni
versity of the South. Prof. Winchell
closes with these words to the Van
derbilt people, defiantly, "I challenge
controversy." He is spoiling to be
come a martyr. His position in the
University was removed, and ho could
have declined a reflection, but he
indignantly declined, preferring to
bulldoze the Trustees into keeping
him on a fat salary.
And then citing the anatomical in
feriority of the race, he adds:
Nor must these statements ! set
down to the negro s demerit. If it
would helo my argument, I would
point nut the excellencies and capaci
ties of negro natures, and would take
pleasure in doing so. Hut this would
be irrelevant. I have indicated the
proof of the negro's physical, intellec-
tual and social iii ft.rmri'i. I nave m-
sistod on the high improbability of a
I, irm rai l from the grade of Atlantic
aces to that of the actual negro; ami
dually I have maintained that if n
complete racial degeneracy were ad
missible, the fimr nerween tne ninii-
d Adam and the date of ancient mon
uments fully depicting tne i,de-
veloped Negro, is palpably insufficient
for the racial divergence.

The Chairman, Proctor Knott, was
one of the members of. the Judiciary
Committee who refused to sisrn this
resolution. Mr. Knott read a minori
ty report, which holds that the great
underlying question to lie determined
was not the one which the committee
seemed to consider paramount to all
others. It was not merely whether
the present incumbents of the Presi
dential and Vice Presidential offices
should be disturbed, but it had a wi
der range and reached an infinitely
protounder depth. It was true it
might incidentally aflect the title of a
couple of citizen to the honors and
emoluments, of certain high and im
portant offices now claimed by them,
but it also involved the dignity and
sovereignty of. thirty-eight indepen
aent una co-equai ptat.es, as well as
the rights and liberties of 40,K,000
people. The conclusion of the report
is in the following words; "Let the
representatives of the people teach the
people by a solemn resolution that
possession is lietter that right, and
usurpation stronger than law; that res
turning boards are supreme, and that
the law is voiceless. Then, indeed,
will the people realize that the law has
alxlicated, and that force has been en
throned, and then will the country in
deed become Mexicanized. Force will
be resolved onto redress wrong as Wfll
as to sustain it, and recourse le had

We suppose the alove resolution
will quiet the fears of the alarmed
ones. The same Congressmen, or most
of them, who voted for it also voted,
in March, 1S77, that Tilden and Hen
dricks were elected President and ice
President of the United States they
declared this in the most solemn man
ner. The Electoral Rill, which put
Hayes in, reserved to the losing party
the right to test the matter in the
Courts, bul the above resolution de
nies that right. How do Congressmen
reconcile these things? It is wrong in
principle, but pcrlui jjk it may be lies t

Alice West in Jackscn, UioMgas.
On Wednesday, the lth inst., this
game Maury county lilly measured
stritles witlfthe largest field of trotters
that we have ever known to Ik? in one
race. There were fifteen entries for
the -: ") race; two paid forfeit, and
thirteen came to the score. In draw
ing for positions to start, Alice drew
No. 10, w hich placed her in the rear
tier of horses, there being seven in the
front tier and six in the rear tier le
ing so placed it was not surprising that
she could not go to the front. Ethel
won the heat in Alice seventh.
Just after passing the wire in this
heat Charlie ran into Alice West,
breaking a shaft and upsetting the
sulkey, throw ing Mr. (ieers out, and
lnitli horses ran away. Alice was but
little hurt, and was ready to start in
twenty minutes from the accident in
the second heaUi, She was quite ner
vous from fright and fatigue of the ac
cident, and was a little unstrung, but
soon took third position and main
tained it to the finish, Etiielagain win
ning in -:'2. In the thin! heat Alice
made a dead heat with Croxie for sec
ond place. This gave her third place
in the race Ethel winning the heat
and race in '2X. It is reasonable to
suppose, and Mr. (Jeers claims that
but for the accident he would have
won the second heat, and if he could
have got a heat he was then sure of
the race. Rut as great and game a
mare as she is she cannot alw ays win

lion. XV. C. Whitthorne, made a short
pcech on the 11th of June, in vintli
cation of tiuv. J ah n C. Hrown, Vice
I'resident of the Texas Pacific Itail
road, his character having been assail"
ed in a speech by a 'presentative
from Al.duuiia. (ten. Whitthorne
speaks of Oov. Drown a 'a lla3-artl as
soMier, a iitriot as statesman."
He then proceeds to announce him-
self as a frieiul of the Texas J'aeific
road; and in doing so admits that he
has always lecii a "strict construction
ist," and opjxised to class legislation,
r the granting of aid by the govem-
nent, either in money, bonds or ered
it, either to individuals, or cori (ora
tion.-; and that m the departure from
this rule by the States aud .National
Jovcrnnient is to be found the basis
if many of thejut comjdaints of the
x;ople. The bill introduced by Col.
House makes the Texas Tacilic a na
tional enterprise, relieved of all local
projects; and Iteing a national enter-
. - . iit !iii
prise, lien w inimorue, as a national
representative of the people, felt that
he could vote for it. E-(ccialIy did
he feel it his duty to vote for the bill,
it at all times recognizes the au
thority of the government, is subject
to thi legislative control of the peo
ple, ''and in tins way becomes in their
lands me means or protection against
xisting inonojKilies and future coinhi-
ualious io control me iiKiirstry, trade

Victory for the ilonej Power.
When the recent Congress met, the
people demanded three great measures
of iustiee and relief, namely : The re-
moiietizatmn ot silver, tue repeal oi
the resumption act, and the reduction
of taxes. The last measure has been
recently defeated in the House ofKep
reseutatives by a coalition between
the Kenubliean party and a few Dem-
cratic reneiradc-s frarn the East. The
silver bill passed the' House very
promptly, ami, after a long resistance
by the money power, passed the Sen
ate and then finally triumphed over
the Presidential veto.
The bill to repeal the resumption
act, which outweighed in importance
every measure before Congress nut to
get her, passed the Democratic House
of Representatives at the extra ses
sion. The Senate Finance Committee
kept the bill four or live months, and
at last reported a substitute, which
cured only a portion of the evils of the
resumption act. It provided for a
stoppage of the contraction policy by
the Secretary of the Treasury, but left
in full force the provision requiring the
resumption of specie payment on the
1st of January, winch, ot course, ne
cessitated a very severe contraction
by the banks, and also left in force the
unlimited power rf the Secretary to
sell bonds ami joard irold. Delay in
passing this partial measure occurred,
owing to the peculiar composition of
the rinauce Committee, and mean
time the House of Representatives
passed another bill to stop the further
retirement and cancelation of green
backs bv the Secretary ot the Treasu
rv. This last bill went through the
Senate and haslieen signed by Hayes.
It effects some good, hut leaves in
force the worst features of the resump
tion act already mentioned. The sul(-
iect of the comnnttee substitute bill
came up iu 'he Senate, and was dis
cussed in an imperfect and desultory
manner. Durir.tr nuieh of the time
there was a jrood deal of disorder iu
the Senate. The mode of dealing
with a great subject was extremely
discreditable, and the decision is even
more so. The result is a victory for
John Sherman and Ids lmndholding
syndicate allies, and another defeat
for the suffering people oftjiisland.
Rv the approval of the committee,
their amended bill wis reduced to
simple provision, that United States
notes be at once received in payment
of the four per cent. l(nds, and after
the tirst of October next for duties on
Cot. Tsrtrr and Jzigz Zey.

relation to the acceptance ot a Cain

ically correct. I had no knowledge ol
his a'ppointmcnt until it. was publicly
announced, and, of course, did not ad
vise his acceptance or it. me .lea

Key to accept the appointment, and it
is tlue to him to say that he did not
consult me al(out it, or in anywise ask
for my advice or opinion, A tew
weeks after his acceptance, a leiines-
see editor, and a particular friend of
mine, accorded to me the credit, as he
termed it, of suggesting Judge Key's
appointment to a Cabinet place. The

Conversation Between a Democrat
and a Republican as to the
In the course of his speech hist Mon
day. Mai. Svkes gave a conversation
lietwecn Hon. S. M. Arnell, former
Republican member of Congress, and
himself, in regard to tlie State debt
tiucstion. Mai. Sykes said to Mr. Ar
nell: "You Republicans, I am inclined
to think, wish us leniicssee -Demo
crats to dig a repudiation ditch and
fall into it; you are anxious to fix upon
ns the odium of repudiation in order
that it may assist your party in the
northern elections and thereby secure
Republican supremacy in the Oovcrn
nient. ami 1 am apprehensive that
whilst you will not run repudiation
candidates yourselves you will sup
lort anti-State credit Democrats so as
to make the Democratic party respon
sible." I know, said he, "your rea
soiling tt le correct as to the cited
that tho'Tcnnessee Democrats suppor
ting repudiation will have upon tin
Northern mind, but wlnist 1 am anx
ious for the success of the Republican
candidates in the fall elections and es
pecially anxious fur the triumph of
the Republican party in the great con
test ot INN' i, 1 want tnem losueeeet; on
other grounds. I do not desire that
the State of Tennessee, a State in
which I was liorn and expect to live,
should le ruined in order that my JK(-
htieal party should gam sTieeess tiv
that mean.-." This, .-aid Maj. Sykes,
was a noble sentiment coming from n
Republican, and ' I give him credit
Ihe investigation is bringing out
manv points which explains things ol
the past. For instance the showing ot
the fact that Conkiing had had the
possession of the Anderson-Matthews
otters explains many things in the
Mines interview. It also explains
Howe's speech and why Matthe vs did
not reply, although he was i(ersonallv
ittacked. The plan was, in the event
Matthews replied, for Conkiing, with
the knowledge of the Anderou-Mat-
icws connection, to come into de
lude. Hurra 1 1 shows that Matthews

One of 1 the transactions alluded to
which the " committee feel bound to
hleal with at some length, 'is the mat
ter ot tne purenase oi tne jjnrungton,
a Kieam rerrvDoat, now lying ar
League Island, It appears that when
in the Forty-fourth Congress the Na
val committee was conducting its in
vestigation into the management of
naval affairs, thev had occasion to in-
t.iiire into the cost and use. of this Ves
set, alleged then to nave been cnarter-
ed for the purpose or removing stores,
etc., from the old navy-yard at Phila
delphia to League Island. The char
ter or tne. boat was matte irom tne
rew Jersey Steam Navigation Com
panv, wnicn was composed oi a nrm
known as Wood, Dialogue rc t o. us
principal if not sole stock noioers at
the rate of one thousand dollars per
month. One of the meml(ers of this
company, Mr. Randolph Wood, swore
in April, l7fi, that the Oovernruent
did not own the boat. The Messrs,
Robeson and Hanscomb, also, before
the same committee two months later,
in July, 1S70, swore that the Burling
ton was not among' the vessels that
had been purchased since ISO',), and
the committee did not-suppose, when
iiKjuiring about her cost, that she te
lomred to the Government. No one
examined intimated it, yet every offi
cer ot the (Jovcrnnient liKeiy to, and
some of those who did, know the facts,
were examined, and did not disclose
During the recent examination (Jen
Whitthorne and his committee have
ascertained that hi December, 1875, a
regular bill of sale for this vessel had
been made to Mr. Robeson, the price
agreed to tie paid being forty thousand
dollars. Why tins tact should nave
been concealed alike from the other
officers of the Government as well as
from the committee, by the New Jer
sey Navigation Company, by Mr.
Robeson . and by Mr. Hanscom, the
committee are at a loss to understand
or explain. It is shown that Mr Ran
doiph Wood had, in the sale of this
vessel. undertaKen to pay some one
commission of five thousand dollars,
and his surviving partner, Dialogue,
states that some such understanding
was represented to him by Mr. ood,
but to whom he ddes not know.
The whole record shows that Wmxl
did not trade with anybody but Mr,
Rolieson. Five years later, when
Wmm1 was examined for the second
time, he swore to a lie. Having sworn
falsely, aud fearing that his hooks
would show the truth, he destroyed
the evidence of his guilt by cutting
from the books the leaves tijion which
were recorded the details ot the trans
action, namely, the purchase of the
-vessel by Mr. ltobesoii. Very shortly
afterwards the city of "Philadelphia
was greatly excited ny the intelligence
that Mr. iod had committed sui
cide, the" cause for which, up to thi
day. hasTemaineda mystery.
'Ihe trth aiwut that Mil ot sale Mas
found after Hanscom was dismissed
by the-present Secretary Thompson
when Dialogue V Co., were seeking a
settlement with the department.
It is also shown that this same firm
purchased a floating dock sold by the
Government at Philadelphia, and by
the terms of the advertisement, for
cash. The entire sum bid was $'!
4in. All but $10,000 was represented
by a note, ami instead or being turned
over 1t the Treasury, as by law it
should have been, was, by the order
and direction of Secretary Rnljcson,
agreed to be applied to the purchase of
the lUuiiugton clearly a violation of
the law. And vet the illegality and
looseness which marked the transac
tion are not all told.
ItapjK'.irs that in December, 1S75,
ajproved bills for Jn,iMK) were dchv
ered by Mr. Hanscom to -Mr. Itau-
tlolph Wood. In June, 1S7C, they
were found in one of the banks of
Philadelphia as collateral security for
a note of Wood, Dialogue fc Co., for
c27,imh. Rv the direction of Mr. Hans
com the Naval Paymaster at Phila
delphia, A. W. Russell, was brought
to aslnngton. Ihe necessity of ta
king up these bills was explained to
him, ami he was directed tomaKean
irregular ami illegal requisition, upon
which a rcuuisitioii chargeable to the
appitipriiition for the eight sloops of
war was made by the Secretary ot the
Navy hi (on the Se rctary of the 1 reas
ury for S2n,ooo, with which, and the
sum in his hands for other purposes,
Russell was directed by Rolieson and
Hanseoni to take up the approved bills
issued in December, 1875, ami held as
collateral by tne l'lniadeipnia name,
and at the same time was directed and
instructed by these parties to hold the
bills and note of ood, Dialogue i:
Co., until the appropriations for the
next fiscal year would become availa
ble. In pursiiHTiee of these orders and
direction, all of which were verbal,
the Paymaster took up the note and
heM it and all the approved bills, with
out accounting for the disbursement
of public money made in June, 1870,
until December, ls-.ti, six months la
ter. This was a violation of law, ami
subjects the officer to trial for such
disregard of the law.
The Committee suggest that it may
be that the orders of his superior offi
cers will excuse Paymaster Russell,
but it asks, is there any excuse for
the officers who counseled, procured
and directed these violations ot the
law? Iu the opinion of the committee
there is and should be none.
The transaction here mentioned
forms a most remarkable chapter in
official conduct, and is regarded by the
Committee as demoralizing aiidinjun-
ous to the public service.
Ihe report will show that Mr. Kobe-
son must have l(een a tienenciary of
this SsVtMK) commission, for the reason
that it appears that Wood treated with
notxidy other than llobeson, no claim
agents or go-l(eween having appeared
upon the scene.
