'I Great Injustice. We are relia
bly informed that several Kentucky
planters hare had tobacco lying at
Pembroke and Trenton, awaiting ship
ment to the warehouses of this city,
but it is passed by unnoticed by the
Henderson railroad .management. It
is stated that they eagerly transport
all tobacco intended for Hopkinsville,
whilst tobacco consigned to this point
is left lying at the stations, exposed to
the weather. The railroad company
should be made to pay all damages to
the owners for injury from exposure
to the weather .and refusing to ship.
We understand that a committee has
been sent from here to look into this
matter, and if the reports concerning
shipments are true, they should be
made liable to the full extent of injury
and delay. '

If the law-givers who enacted the law
had headed it "an act toencourage lit
igation and starve printers, " the pub-
Jic would have understood the motive
and the object ; as it stands it is a
meaningly act of injustice, working
mischief to one set of men without
confering good upon any. If the ob
ject is to diminish the costs of law
suits to those who foolishly get into
them, why not scale the fees of sheriffs
and clerks and lawyers. Why single
out the printer and make him the sole
alms-giver to the unfortunate litieant

'be to evade 6omc just responsibility,

We deny, foto, the right of the
Legislature to regulate private con
tracts iu any legitimate line of busi

dulge in that sort of class legislation
which discriminates ngaiust one class
of men, for the benefit of another.

Commercial makes the following bio
graphical sketch - of him : "He is
son of Rev David Munsey; was born
July 13, 1833, in Giles County, Virgin

185a ; joined Holston Conferenee- of
the Methodist Episcopal Churoh,
South, in October, 1856;, was married
to Miss Jennie' Blair, of Jonesboro,
Tennessee, May 17, 1880." They have
four children living; have lost one.
He was first sent to the Decatur Cir
cuit; was stationed afterward at East
Knoxville ; at Chattanooga, wai there
two years ; then at Abingdon, Bristol
and Alexandria consecutively. Was
assigned duty at Baltimore in 1866.
In 1869 was elected Secretary of Board
of Foreign Missions. Iu '1S70 he was
sent back to Baltimore, where he re
mained until a few months ago, when,
in consequence of impaired health, he
gave up his work-? Hew nowiln fee

We are pleased to learn that move
ments are being set on on foot, by far
mers of the Northwest, to break down
those combinations of capital so detri
mental to agricultural interests. In
Illinois, their action is so spirited that
politicians are alarmed at the coming
storm. Railroad rings are receiving
the earliest attentions of aggrieved far
mers, and tremble in anticipation of
the exercise of their power to enforce
the redress they demand. To the far
mers the country must look f r the
abatement of evils and the Eooner they
combine the better.

its wonderful correctness if you would

Tight order, with the proper spaces,
points, and marks, to fill such a sheet
as this. Recollect that each letter is
picked up separately by the fingers,
then set the right end and the
right side up, then put into its
row, and so by as slow a pro
cess as that of the ant in building its
house, the work goes on until the line
and the column, the page and the pa
per are full. It is a marvel to us now
after seeing the process these thirty
years, that so few blunders, rather than
that so many are made.
New Grocert Firm Mr. S. E
Raimey, late of Southern Hotel, .has
purchased an 'interest in the whole

Rawls. . The new firm will coon have

of gro.'eries, and from their wel
known businessqualifications and in
tegrity they will, doubtless, do a good
business. The grocery trade of Clarks

instead of diminishing it has eteadily
increased in importance since the war.

. LEGISLATIVE SUMMARY.
In the Senate yesterday, Mr. McCall

al Assembly that the debt of the State,
whether of bonds or coupons, should
not be tunded. as is now proposed by
several bills belore the body. House
resolution anpointinc; a committee to
inquire into the amount of fees receiv
ed by Clerks ot Courts, was adopted.
Senate bill regulating the insurance
business in this State, passed third
reading. This ' bill is the one intro
duced by Mr. Richardson, the main
features of which are that it requires
from foreicn fire insurance companies
doing busiucss in Tenuesspe, a sworn
statement as to the condition of their
business, of a more strict character
than under the present law, and that
the deposit with the Comptroller of
the sum of $20,000 provided for by the
present law, shall no longer be requir
ed. A resolution was introduced,
which lies over, directory to the State
Treasurer, instructing him to cancel
the Tennessee money he has on hand.
amounting to $SOg,4'J2; also appointing
a joint committee to examine all pan
elled securities which have aceumui
. Jted in the hands of the State officials
since the date of the last examination

nication was received from Col. T. A.
Scott, proposing to pass the members
of the Legislature from Louisville to
Washington and return, free, in order
that they may participate in the inau
guration festivities in the latter city,
l'h invitation was accepted, and a
joint resolution adppted by a vote of
fifteen to seven, providing for an ad
journment from the 1st to the 10th of
March, to witness the inuguration cer
emonies referred to. It is extremely
doubtful if the House adopts such a
resolution, with so much important
legislation that needs prompt atten
tion. Jn the House new bills were intro
duced; By Mr. llulverhill. to repeal
from section 1781 to 179, inclusive, of
the Code; by Mr. Houk, to amend ah
act to establish a Bureau of Immigra
tion, and for other purposes. House
bill on third reading, to form the new
county of Webster out of parts of
Claiborne, Campbell and Union,
pissed; also bill making one truilty of
felonious assault, where, if murder
had ensued, it would have been mur
der in the second decree; also creating
the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit. The
bill to lessen the costs ot litigations,
by doing away with juries under cer-:
tain circumstances, was finallv killed on
a motion to reconsider. A Sill to in
craase the jurisdiction of County Courts
pessed. Bill on second reading, ap
propriating ifcliOOO lor the Deaf and
Dumb Asylum, was amended, bv sub
stituting $10,000, and passed.

CL1BKSTILLI TOBACCO MARKET.
Our market for the past week has been
a little less active for grades of low leaf and
lugs, but shows less decline than other
markets as witnessed by the fact of almost
daily shipments of tobacco from Louisville
and other points to this board. It has been
demonstrated in the past that this is is the
b?st market In the west for the producer.
The present status of the different markets'
shows t his precedence to be well sustained.
The closeness of the money market is pro
ducing the present Inactivity. Money Is
