Mahone says he's going to do as he

There will be a general convention
of all the Sunday-schools of East Ten

little moral training.
Gibson, of the Knoxville Republi
can, says Rulo complains because th
people call him (Gibson) "Colonel,"
and only call him (Rule) "Bill Rule;"
and that if Rule don't stop abusing
him it will make him (Gibson) Gov
ernor or Congressman. Mirabile dictu J

The inauguratiou of Gen. Garfield
as President of the United States on
yesterday was no doubt a grand affair.
The extensive preparations and - the
cheap facilities for travel, together with
tho importance of the occasion all com
bined to bring together perhaps the
largest attendance ever witnessed on a
The Republicans have occasion for
general rejoicings, not at the triumph
of the party merely, but at its recov
ery from forlorn hope and foregone de
feat which stared them in the face for
many mouths after the nomination of
Gen. Hancock: The fact that they
now have a President, whose election
is not only unchallenged but fairly con
ceded under the fiy-ms ot law, iu con
trast with one they forced on the
country four years ago against, and in
utter violation of, all these bulwarks
of our liberties, is no ordinary cause of
Bclf-gratulation to that party.
We hope that the uew President will
exhibit in his administration that abil-
ty which ho has the credit of possess
ing, ana that this will euable him to
rise above party shackles and party
purposes so far as to forget all sectional
ines, and make himself the President
of the whole Union in fact as he is in
theory. Never had a man a finer
opportunity to rise to this exalted plane
of patriotism than Gen, Garfield has

The Fire Acts Already Passed.
The following are the five Acts al
ready passed by the Legislature and
signed by the Governor :
1. The Governor's salary raised from
$3,000 to $4,000.
2. The charter of Lebanon repealed.
3. An Act to regulate the printing
of Supreme Court reports.
4. Charter of Rome repealed.
5. A joint resolution to take recess
from 28th ult. to 8th inst, to allow
members to attend Garfield's inaugura
Forty-five days work and two re
cesses amounting to twenty days !
Gen. Garfield is perhaps one of the
best extemporaneous speakers in the
United States, tod intended on yester
day, contrary to the usual custom, to
deliver his inaugural address without
manuscript or note, in his usual method
of address. This has not been done
since the days of President Franklin
ierce, who was an old time orator and
While tliia is all well enough, Gen.
Garfield should not forget the philoso-
hy and good segse contained in an off
land speech made by a colored brother
in a class meeting. Being called on to
tell how he felt, lie arose and said :
My dear bruikleren, dis here cul'ard
nigger feels jes like he could talk more
good in live minutes
good in five years."
duff he can do
As to the propriety of Gen. Hun-
cock's being present and taking part in
the inauguration ceremonies of his suc
cessful opponent, we neely concede to
him the right to decide. That he is
fully competent to do so no one, we
presume, will deny, for he is'a man of
extraordinary judgment, as well as the
finest sense of propriety. He has
shown not only extraordinary talents
as a military commander, butthefiuest
judgment and common sense ns a states'
man and civilian.
With such a record as he has made
in all these relations he can well afford
to place beneath his feet the jetty jeal
ousies and narrow prejudices of meaner
miuds, and stand as the proudest figure
in that august pageantry of civic and
military display, with a popular major
ity of eight thousand votes of tlieJ
American people for President. Be
sides all this, he is the commander of
all the troops of that department, and
to be there is to be at the post of duty,
which he was never known to shun or
The Knoxville Republican has the
following to say of Irale, the editor of
the Chronicle, (Hep.): "Every rule
has its exceptions but William Rule ;
and ho has his deceptions." To whijjh
we wish to apply te following logic :
It is a poor rule that will not work bvlh
Gibson says William works both ways and
lu nce is full of "deceptions."
Therefore William is not a f)ot Rule.
He that is not a "poor rule" is a good one.
William is not a poor Rule.
Therefore William Is a good Role.
This is tho logical conclusion from
Gibson's premises, but logic has noth
ing to do with the subject matter of
The Governor's Message. '
Gov. Hawkins submitted his . mes
sage to the Legislature on the 25th
ult. , and as it is a very lenghthy docu-1
ment we cannot publish it in full, but
will give his suggestions and recom
mendations as far as practicable.
He suggests a revision of the assess
ment laws so as to equalize taxation
more nearly and increase the revenues
of the State. He recommends an in
crease in the jurisdiction of Justices of
the Peace, as well as that of Criminal
Judges, so as to avoid the delays of
the law under the present system. He
also suggests that the Legislature in its
wisdom relieve the Supreme Court in
some way of its crewded docket. He
suggests that something be done to ren
der the penitentiary more adequate and
secure, either by building a new one or
repairing the old one. He recommends
the establishment of a "Reformatory
School" for youthful criminals. He
simply commends the subject of tem
perance to the Legislature as,one that
cries alound for legislation. The regu
lation of railroad freights is merely
mentioned, and some wise and cautious
action suggested. The grave consider
ation of the legislators is asked for the
passage of a road law, but no plan
suggested. Plenty of fish and good
health are freely recommended, and
mob violence as freely condemned.
Public schools and charitable institu
tions come in for their usual share of
good will and good words. The State
debt fills a long chapter without a mor
al, and is turned off without a word of
suggestion to the practical wisdom of
the Legislature, He finally rides out
of the breakers on the glittering genei
alities of agriculture, commerce and
His suggestions in the main are good
but they are too shallow for the stern
realities that now beset us a Slate. We
want something more than suggestions
and recommendations, we waut plans
and purposes unequivocally eipressed.

AtFair.Start. Review of Uooxs.
At the opening of a promiscuous
spelling match, a little boy said : "Now,
grand-father, lets start fair. You take
the word Nebuchadnezzar aud I'll take
the word cat."
This boy was a true philosopher,
and if our graiuPfather pedagogues
would only practice his philosophy,
they would lessen their own labors as
well as advance their pupils much more
rapidly. It was, indeed, a "fair start'
to put the boy on a word of three let
ters while his grand-father should en
counter one with fourteen. It is "fair"
to (Appose that the boy knew as much

The plan of the old geographies is
the same as that which would have
started the boy and the old man both
together, on the woid of fourteen let
ters. A geography that requires a be
ginner to name and describe all the
bodies of water in the world, from the
rivulet to the ocean, and all the divis
ions of laud, from the least island to
the largest continent, with teir boun
daries, extent, surface, fertility and
mountain ranges, is as puzzling to him

kin? who had this hard name, and
which dauiel alone could interpret.
Mitchell's New Series of Geogn
phies are constructed on the opposite
plan, each book being a complete wot

such and so much of each subject as
tho learner can comprehend and retain
in memory as knowledge, upon which
to build again when he advances to
the next book. As the occulist who
sees all he can by unaided vision takes
the microscope and views beauties before
unthought of, iu like manner the learn
er when he has seen all in the Primary
Geography takes the Intermediate,
which enlarges his views and intensifies
the objects that were only outlined by
the first book.
The series consists of First Lessons
in Geography, New Primary Geogra
phy, New Iutermediate Geography,

nying these geographies and adapted to

mary and the Intermediate embody
