TI1E SITUATION IX TEXNESSLE.
One month ngo to-day the Republi

Hawkins for Governor, laid down their

campaign with a zeal and enthusiasm
not witnessed in their ranks since the
dark days of Brownlow's rule. They

Col. Savage made a speech, at the
court house in McMinqviile, on the

in his, for we understand that he is now

State's employ in the "New Issue" suit.
As we did uot hear the speech we
are dependent entirely on verbal rei
ports from those who did heai it. We
will try not to misrepresent him, and
certainly will not abuse him, cur any

are no divisiuus nor bickerings in their

The Democratic party has laid down
no plan of settlement vet. In view of
the Presidential election this year and
the fact that a suit is now pending
against the Railroads for the payment
of the interest on a large part of the
State debt, and is not likely to be de
cided for one or two years yet, would
it uot be good polioy iu the Democratic
party sanctioned by the good of tho
country at large to postpone all action
on the State debt till our next State
elections in 1882?
The State creditors now have no
proposition before th-p&upli4 the peo-1
pie have no proposition before thorn.
There is now nothing to divide or agi
tate the Democracy in this matter.
Then why should Democrats suffer
themselves estranged as brethren, and
their party divided and defeated ? This
agitation of State politics and proposed
co-operation in National politics is a
delusion, and a mere strategem of dem
agogues to elect themselves to office.
Every public speaker proposing this
farce is a candidate for a State offioe,
or an office before the State Legisla
ture, and it is plainly to be seen that
their only object is self-promotion.
Let the Democrats not be deceived
and divided bv their craftiness.

over the city that the Summer stree
church had been converted into a hotel
on the European style under tho fancy
name ot Hotel de huvrd. All wc can
say is that we left Kitehey in undispu
ted possession of the building and that
he remained several days longer in the
city. As to the abstract question of
sleeping iu a church, we do not pre
sume that he denies the charge, or pre
tends to claim that he is the first per
son who ever did so, iu fact we know
he does not claim to bo a pioneer in the
business. And in as much as it has
now been practically demonstrated that
it is possible to sleep in the pulpit, we
would suggest that it is perhaps a want
of wakefulness in 'the pulpit that causes
so much sleeping in the imvt. But of
course uo local allusion to any particu
lar pulpit is intended; we are only
speaking abstractly of the pulpit.
P. S. The more we explain the
more explanation is needed. A friend
from Manchester says it is understood
there that we engaged a room at the
xS'icholson Ilouso a mouth iu advance
and when we arrived it was occupied
by 18 young ladies. There was such
crowding and confusion in this whole
matter that it is useless to try to explain
ft satisfactorily it is however a fact
that we give up our room to some la
dies, and so did Ritchey.
