Some of the leading papers of the
State are commending the declarations
made by Col. Savage at the Maxwel
House the night after the election of
Jackson as United States Senator,
when he said he hoped the party would
again be reunited, and the Legislature
would settle the debt, and he woul
approve the settlement provided it did
not make coupons receivable for taxes
This is precisely what we have contend
ed for all the time, and should be more
than glad to know that Col. Savage
would make good these declaration
aud thus aid in settling this vexed
question and harmonizing the party,
The Debt Question.
There are some hopes now entertain
ed that the Legislature will make an
effort to settle the State debt. Gov
ernor Han kins has indicated to that
body very plainly that there will be
no extra session called for the purpose
of settling it. This is certainly proper.

In common with every good and law
abiding citizen of Tennessee we con
demn in unqualified terms the mob vio
lence which wrested from the hands of
the law last week at Springfield, five
negro meu as the reputed murderers of
Laprado, aud executed them without
the forms of law. No State, no gov
ernment can brook such offences to law
and order long and live. If the State
cau not stop such violence she fails to
make good her prerogative to protect
the lives, liberties and pursuit of hap
piness of her subjects, and a contract

" Whatever fanatics and sensation
shrickers may say, w ise and consider
ate meu everywhere will look for a
remedy in the removal of the immedi
ate occasion which produces this vio
lence. The cause of the mob uuds its
seat in the unrestrained passions of the
human heart, but theoccasion of its
manifestation is found in the doubts
and delays of justice consequent upon
our administration of the law.
Here is a quiet aud peaceable commu
nity which claims that near six months
ago the sacred precincts of one of its
homes was invaded at the dead hours
of night by six colored ruffians, who
dragged one of its peaceable and quiet
citizens from his resting place and sub
jected him to tortures and indignities
that would make the Spanish Inquisi
tion blush, or the fiend of Erebus pale
for cruelty, and in cold blood and fiend-
sh mockery murdered him and dese
crated his home ; that the authorities
gathered up the suspected murderers
and cast them into a distant jail to
await justice, and after long waiting
they are brought out for a long, tedious
and technical trial, in which .the maj
esty of a great Stato barters murder
for treason with one-third in order to
convict the other two-thirds, turns the
traitor murderers loose to go back and
mate up a new band ana murder

cause the State, by compounding crime
with some and exercising the looseness
of lenity with the others, thus fails to
protect the lives, peace and property
of that community, and hence it takes
the matter iu its own hands.
Their course was lawless and disorder
ly, but whose fault is it? While
we condemn the act, we re
gret that there is even a shad
ow of excuse for it. Let the State
show her subjrets by practice rather
than by profession that justieo will be
administered speedily without delay,
justly without mistake, and certainly
without doubt. When this is done

In our last issue we laid down the
justly recoguized "metiiod" of acquiring
knowledge to be a procedure from Hie
known to tlie unknown, and showed that
the New American Spellers were made
to accord with that "method." And
we now present the New American
Readers as a graduated series of read
ers on the same plan, beginning with
what the beginner knows and leading
him by graduated advancement into
the beautiful fiejds of the hitherto un
known. This series of readers, like
the spellers, was compiled and publish
ed for Viis age, out of fresh and cur
rent matter adapted to tiiis generation,
and not for a past age, nor out of obso
lete matter. The best farmers of our
country seek the best and latest im
proved farm implements; and hence
you never see one of them plowing
with the "plow of the daddies," but
with the best approved patterns of to
day, bhall the teacher be behind the
plowman ? If it be necessary in culti-
vating the soil that the latest and best
methods should be employed, is it not
more so in the cultivation of .mind T
Who will doubt this ?
In addition to the usual directions
tor reading according to the old method,
these Readers, by means of the read
ing chart, teach the method of ivord
reading by beginning with the begin
ner to teach him to read, just where
the mother left off teaching him to
speak. She taught him to speak by
giving him uW words, not syllables
first and then the word entire; in like
manner these Readers present him the
picture of the object, aud then its
nahie as a word. For example : The
picture of a dog is presented and the
name given as a word to be read as a
word, dog. Its analysis into the letters
d, o, g, is a subsequent step. These
Readers begin with the word dog as a
word because the learner knows more
about the word than he does the letter?
required to represent it, and proceeding
from what he knows about the word to
its combinations in a sentence and then
its resolution into the three letters
d, o, g, they lead him with his consent
into a knowledge of much that he
did not know before. Let us now take
the word cot. The learner finds here
a picture and the name of an object
that he has known from his first recol
lections; now associate with this the
two words and see, both of which he
already knows, and you then require
him to read these words thus : I see cat.
Then thus: Cat sees me. He is now
talking these words on paper in the
same way he learned to talk them from
his mother's lips. If this is not natu
ral and easy, and consequently Hie way,
then let mothers change the
method. The learner is now usine
what little he knows and in such a way
as to know mo;e.
After he has mastered these words.
then let him look into the words and
see what they are made of. Thus cat
is made of the letters e, a, t, sounded
k, a, t Now, when he has learned
the sound of "a" in this word, give
him a number of other words in which
a has the same sound : as man, ran
rat, &c, thus adding know ledge to the
known till his stock is sufficient to com
mence business for himself.
This is the plan of tho New Ameri
can Readers until the Etymological
Reader is reached, which is the sixth
and last hook in the series ; and it is
in deed and in truth a finishing, as well
as a finished, Header. In audition to
the most select and choice pieces in our
literature as reading lessons, it presents
tho "Principles of Elocution," a tiea
tise on "Etymology," "Prefixes and
Suffixes of English words," "Saxon
Roots with English Derivatives,"
"Latin Roots with English Deriva
tives," "Greek Roots with EnglLsl
Derivatives," "Directions to Teachers,"
and a Biographical Index of Authors
from whom selections have been made.
If "all is well that ends well," this
series of Readers is certainly the best,
for no book published answers its pur
pose any better as a finishing book of a
series than the New American Etymo
logical Reader, w hich is a compendium
of literature itself.
