As announced in a hand bill freely
circulated in this county, Hon. I. It.
Hawkins, Radical M-member of Con
gress", of Iluntmgdon, addressed a
targe audience at this place on Monday
last, Jlr Hawkins divided time with
Maj. Vm. J. Sykef, but compelled
Svkes to speak first, who, although he
cinie to Paris with the avowed pur
pose of answering Hawkins, was at a
coutideraUe disadvantage, as he of
course did not know what position
CoL Hawkins would assume, further
than the report that he would advo
cate tbe repudiation of the public
debt, state and national. Col. Haw
kins made a strong speech. He dis
eased at some length the limits of
legislative bodies to tax the people ;
took position against the right of one
generation to contract a debt the pay
ment of which must be imposed upon
a future one, principally in the ab
stract. He claimed that the public
debt of Tennessee was within his defi
nitions improperly and to posterity
unjustly imposed, and that the legal
and moral obligation to pay it did not
exl-t. He claimed that there was as
little or less obligation to pay the
national debt, and that the payment
of both would re-endive the colored
race (quoted largely Gen. Banks's
speech in tongress) and enslave the
whites. All of his positions and ar
guments were a fearful comment upon
the Radical party, and, although he
did this by implication freely, he was.
careful not to do so directly and
Coi.L devoted mnch time to the
examination of the numerous cases of
repudiation of the public debts of oth
er countries, beginning with that of
Massachusetts, the old Continental
debt, England, France, Spain and
Mississippi, all of which were justified
upon his general grounds. The audi
ence were somewhat surprised when
he lugged in Washington, Jefferson
and other Fathers of our country as
favoring his views, and this he did in
real good lawyer-like, special pleading
Upon the whole Col. Hawkins used
all the legitimate arguments of which
we can conceive, and many we think
illegitimate, in order to render the
public debts of the country, odious
and oppressive, and we think appeal
ed to the weak side of humanity most
earnestly in order to infuse repudia
tion into the crowd. The speech
was repudiation from the center to
circumference, repudiation and noth
Both gentlemen made speeches and
replied at length. Major Sykes made
a most poiuted reply from the stand-
Kint of a Siutlicrn reconstructed
mocrat and paroled soldier. He
first congratulated the audience that
Southern Democrats had no hand in
piling up this mountain of debt upon
the oppressed people. As to the State
debt, lie laid it at the door of the Rad
ical rule, which increased it from six
teen to forty-two millions, while Dem
ocrats aud conservatives were disfran
chised. He drew the distinction be
tween the bogus debts of the Radical
Legislatures and the original and the
latter just obligations of Tennessee.
He thowed that the bogus debt had
lecn paid by the railroads in settle
ment of their indebtedness to the State,
(although a fraud upon the jK-ople)
and was beyond the reach of any
legislation. He also rhowed that the
bonded debt of Tennessee now under
going refunding, and registration, was
a just debt, for which the people of
the State hud received valuable con
sideration, and much 'of it full value,
and every leg:d and moral obligation
Ivound the people to its payment. The
principle of refunding the debt he en
dorsed, but made objections to some
features in the present funding law,
which he thought might have been
made more just and fully as equitable.
He was in favor of sustaining the hon
or and credit of the State,- as well as
her name and past honorable record.
At the same time he was in favor of
extending every relief possible to the
ts x-pa vers, and insisted on the most
rigid economy and retrenchment, and
the very lowest rate of taxation compatible-
with the necessitiesof the State
government. When became to sjveak
of the national debt, Major Sykes ac
knowledged it was enormous and op
pressive, and had been made the more
so by the conversion of a paper debt
into a gold debt, by the party of which
Mr Hawkins was a member, with
which he had uniformly acted, and
by a Congress of w hich Mr Haw kins
was a member. He alluded to the
fearful increase of the national debt
under both Lincoln and Johnson,
when the latter was a good wholesoul
ed Radical. But while Sykes ac
knowledge the national debt was a
very grievous burden upon the coun
try, Mr Hawkins' party had by con
stitutional amendments, and rccon
fctructi'.in, fastened it so securely upon
the country that it could not be re
pealed. Sykes U)ldly told the crowd
that it could not be gotten rid of, but
wa. a fixture. As a jsiroled
sohjjer, he would lie charged with
treason should he do so; or Southern
Democrats attempting it would 1
charged by Mr I law kins' party with
disloyalty He saw no hope of escape
from the crushing burden of the na
tional debt, unless the Northern eo
ple of the Itadieal party who made
the debt and chained it fast uiion the
! country, should lift it off. Of this he
j hand no hope or expectation, and the
: South was utterly powerless in the
matter, w hue any attempt to do so
would react upon the South, and unit
ing everv element at the North against
the Soutn, banish the last hoie of ev
er obtaining a fair recognition of the
national government, and would fast
en Grant upon the country for the
third aud fourth term. Many strong
points wcreniadeby Maj. Sykes, based
upon, the statistical tables, which
we w ere uuable to obtain. A com
parative statement of Tennessee, and
other states according to productions,
showed that nearly every State in the
Union was more heavily taxed than
Tennessee, yet they were prosperous,
and did not think of repudiation.

Mr Burt True, of Flint, Mich., was
bitten by a rabid dog some time in
May, 171. The animal left the im-
1riiit of several teeth in the center of
lis right hand. Being some distance
from surgical aid, the wound was not
cauterized with nitrate of silver until
twelve hours thereafter. It healed
kindly, aud was not in the lAst irrita
ble up to Jan. 9, 1872. Then well
marked symptoms of hydrophobia de
veloped themselves, such as convul
sions, frothing at the mouth, "barking
like a dog," exertions to bite every
thing, dread of water, &e. Soon af
ter the attack Dr Axford was sum
moned, and soon discovered the disease.
The course of treatment as here detail
ed was pursued, with a happy result:
One grain of morphia sulphas w as
injected under the skin every four
hours, and half a drachm of pow dered
caster was given orcm, mixed with
syrup. The effect was alternation of
convulsions and repose, when two
days thereafter, Sunday evening, the
patient to w rapjied in a woolen blank
et, saturated with a warm solution of
muriate of ammonial Except the oc
casional inhalation of small quantities
of chloroform, the entire treatment
has been given. Vomiting proved
troublesome for several days, but on
Monday the patient became compara
tively quiet, and convalesced from
that time. Dr Axford had treated a
similar case with the same result
some time previous. During the con-vuL-ion,
the jtatieut would seize the
pillows' with his teeth, shake and tear
them like an angry dog, and the
strength of five men was required to
hokl him. .

Cincinnati, July 3. Mr Henry
Petit, engineer of the main hall of the
Centennial Exposition building to l)e
built at Philadelphia, presented the
plan of the main hall to Director
General A- T. Goshorn in this city to
day for approval. Mr Goshorn ap
proved the plans and telegraphed the
fact to the finance board at Philadel
phia so as to enable the board to let
the,contract immediately. The build
ing covers 18 acres; resembles in gen
eral plan the London Crystal Palace;
is, like it, constructedjof iron and glass,
very little wood being used, and is
twice as large 164 feet long, 1,G88
feet wide. It consists of a nave a
hundred and twenty feet wide flank
ed by lateral corridors running paral
lel w'ith it. The xrridors are separa
ted from the central nave by broad
covered aisles, aud the corridors are
flanked on their outer sides each by
an aisle. A transept of the same gen
eral plan as the building divides it at
the center into two equal parts. The
material is of such a character as will
realize handsomely at the sale after the
Exposition. The estimated cost of
the building is $1,200,000.
