to the fact, that Angaite TJc.moBt,
Chairmaa of the Natioaal Ezeeatire

southern State hare received lucilar

tbajeaal of it, la irregular, If aot

tj, at time wbea a full expression
of opinion la aa eaeential ta harmonj
and nnltt of action., We are ploos
ed to learn the Eieoutire Committee
of this State has appointed Pr. Jen
nings of Nashville, to 811 the plaee
for whtuh Mr. Cooper WU Informallj
aaleotci. - Dr. Jennings la a repre
eeotatire man, of aotnowle'ied abil
ity, extensively and favorably known
and we do not donbt that bis appoint
ment will be generally and cordially
approved. It would, perhaps, have
been more in. accordance with usage,
if the appointment bad boon .made
through the agency of a State Con
vention, but as that was Impraetica-
blo, we endorse the action of the
Executive Committee in aaswaiog
thelrerponsibUity; but at theaame
time nrge the call of a State Conven
tion to. appoint delegates td the Na
tional Convention for the nomination
of a candidate' for the Presidency.
In objecting to the action of Bel
mont and to his appointee, our motive
spring from no personal fooling, bnt
are purely politioaL ' : The stake for
which denioeraoy is playing, is the
life of tb nation which hangs upon
the preservation of the Constitution
and the Union. la such a crisis, it
is the duty of every member of the
party to scrutinise the position, and
probable motives of .every maa assn
ujing te be a leader,, and to see to it
that no private Iateresta enter into
the organisation for national objects.
Belmont Jv jperbas, th largest

the European creditors or this gov
crnment, and It is generally Wllevwo
that he is a laree bondholder. From
this it is ioferable that bis bias is
towards gold payment of interest on
bonds, if not of ths bonds themselves.
And inasmuch as President Johnson
has committed himself to the resump
tion of specie payments, be Is, te that
extent; in the interest of the bond
holders. Such being the caso, bis
nomination would be sgresbte te those
who ' would fight for the Radios!
and bondholders under the banner pf
democracy. Is it very uncharitable,
then,. ' to infer that the purpose of
Belmont is to pack the Convention
with an eye to the nomination of
Andrew Johnson, aa a compromise
between extremes between a monied
tyranay and popular liberty.
Payment of the national debt, in
greenbacks, is the one 'live" issue
in the spprokohing canvass, and ao
msn can euoceed who doea not stand
squarely upon it.
As we iutend to support the nom
inee of the party without regard te per
aonal preference, we are anxioua thai
the platforn shall be oom posed of is
sues that promise prompt relief from
debt and taxes, and restoration of the
Union end of liberty "to the victims
of a military despotism ; and that
that the eandidate shall be in full
accord with the platform.' To bringi
about this State of things, the Con
vention should not be made to reflect
the opiuions, or subserve the purpo
ses of those who have "axes to grind,'
but should be national ia ita objeota,
patriotie in Its motives and wins in
the dootrines it promulgates. The
delegates therefore, shnld be nntrsm
ellod by instructions or pledges, and
left free to choose the worthiest sftor
a free lotei change of views as to men
Grant bss long been making dumb
overtures to the Radicals, and, .occa
sionally, significant sign of sympa
thy.. . But be waa eyed with suspici
on and met with coldness, but getting
an idea of what was wsnting to enti
tle him ta full fellowship, he noted
the dog with the President, and was
promptly vectored into the fold, and
ia landed to tbe skies for conduct that
would disgrace any but a Radical, ,
Fortunately, be ia sS weak as nn
principled, aad the higher be is lifted
the more certain and fatal Lis tall.
The meanest part of the trick was ia
ao arranging tho call for the eorroa
pondenoe aa to exclude the reply of
the President to his insolanoe, and
tha aauies of the witnesses of bis
treachery and falsehood.

soeons. Earing labored faithfully and hard
during tho winter alluded to, b obtained
enough, through the nberality of LodcaS and
brethren In other State, to pay off eoma of
tos moat pressing executions au make some
repir,wiUioat which lb College could not,
eron on a small scale, be opened for recep
tion of pupil, or tho education of the or
phans of oar deoeaaed brethren. Thi money
wa promptly and ialthfiilly banded over to
tba Visiting Committee of tba College, (It
proper recipient,) and immediately applied
to tho pnrpoeee tor which It was green.
On tbo 1st of A pill, 1681, by adrioa and
authority of tbo Board of Visitors, Brother
Todd opened the College for reception of pa-
pua, hit suan aeavion oi inree monina, ine
iag been long neglected. - Tbo surceea wa
of the Sanaa year, Ii rather Todd traveled and
obtained additional mease, paying soma
mora debie.of tba Institution, and filing up
for opening tba College on a larger scale in
September, ii ia efforie were again crowned
with aucesea, and tba College exercise open

number of pupil being prejeot with tbe first
of tbe ecbolastia year. Thi eomber em-
tiouea to more s aa too aeasie advanced,
till two hundred nnd fire pupils bad entered
the College, as th annual Catalonia, for th
aeaoo! year ending In Juno. 198T, sbowtv
riny-seven orpuan or rarioua grades and
elaaae ware educated within tba walla of
the College during th past acbobtetio year ;
many of whom were received without charge
or the expectation of pay. . Nolbiag ia ewtr
charged for th tuition of tba orphan of de
ceased brethren, and wa shall always be fjad
to board, clothe, and educate as many' poor
orphans of our deceased brethren, as our
numea means ana room win allow, us to do.
No orphan, making application for a nlace in
school or privilege to attend th Collage has
ever oeeo reiuseu aqmiuance.
During tha Obntiouanca of th past school
year, we were oftea So pressed for money to
met our Indebtedness to tba form of eiecn
lione and other respects, aad to supply other
preesiug want of tb Oollega, that wa were
obliged to rail Brother Todd from hi home

for that aid, without which wo could not

mission of doing good. In all bi tours ha

Fellowship mora and mora to as, and tba en
tire commuoity. Ua has saver aeemed to
eoasslt paraooal ease or comfort, but has
given himself unreservedly to the work of

says needed at the College, yet tie condition
