CLiBKSTILLE, : : : JUXE28,1873.
la casting about for objections to
the assessment act, tbe Legislature is
unjustly censured for tbe complica
tion of tbe scbedule, when in fact, tbat
body contemplated nothing more than
an accurate list of all articles subject
to taxation, and beyond this, tbe re
sponsibility rests upon the Comptroller.
But since the schedule embraces noth
ing that was not taxed under the old
law ; the people bare little to complain
of, though the assessors may feel embar
assed by the complex machinery, un
til use makes it simple. Some com
plain that it is an outrage that tbe tax
payer shall be required to give in bis
list, as under oath, which is equivalent
to saying be would rather some one
else should do his swearing. There is
plausibility in this objection, but it
should be remembered that this confi
dence in a man's honor, is a stronger
apieal to his sense of justice, than
even positive, law, and is far more deli
cate, than requiring the oath to be ad
ministered by a recognized officer, when
an unintentional mistake may assume
the grave semblance of perjury. The
legislature desired to get at all tbe
property subject to taxation, at the
same time, to do it in the manner least
offensive to the taxpayer. The Lord
have mercy upon any people who have
to be sworn individually, and threaten
ed with the punishment due to perjury,
to enforce the discharge of their plain
est duty to the government under
which they live.
The farmers least of all, Bhould com
plain of the searching character of the
assessment, since it can be demonstra
ted that fully half the personal proper
ty in the State escapes taxation, and all
which is lost by this evasion, has to be
payed by the real estate, upon which
there seems to be a growing disposi
tion to impose the whole burden x
taxation. Equally groundless, in our
opinion, is the objection to taxing evi
dences of indebtedness, or notes of
band, and this grows out of the want
of a better understanding of tbe rela
tions existing between government and
citizen. Whilst all will admit the right
and justice of equal taxation exact
ing from capital, the representative of
property, an equivalent to tbe rate
borne by real estate, few seem to ad
mit that government can approximate
this point of exact justice only by the
application of general rules which can
not be made to fit exceptional cases.
If A sell to B land worth $10,000, and
takes notes for the payment, it is ar
gued by many, that the notes ought to
not to be taxed, because they may never
be collected. Upon the same princi
ple of equity, B may contend that tbe
land ought not to be taxed, because tbe
legal tittle is not inbim, uutil the land
is paid for. . Were this conceded, the
State would be deprived not only of
the tax on the land, but its representa
tivesthe notes for $10,000. If A
were so imioverished by the sale of
the land as to exempt him from taxes,
the case wouldpreseut no difficulty; but
if he consider himself as rich after, as
before the sale, then the mere transfer
of values, should work no change in
the obligation of the parties to con
tribute their pro rata to the support of
the government. Capital is but the
representative of as much property as
it will purchase, and no matter by
whom, or for what purpose held, un
less excepted for reasons clearly stated
and of high public interest, should
be taxed at the same rate. The Broker,
the Banker, the speculator must all be
reached before equal taxation can be
claimed as the theory or practice of
the government. No system can be
devised that will meet all the contin
gencies growing out of constant inter
change of values in. the ordinary trans
actions of business life, and the law
can establish no safer or more equita
ble rule than that real estate and per
sonal property whether goods and
chatties, notes, bonds, or currency
shall be subject to the same rate of
taxation just exemptions being not
inconsistent with the general rule.
The conclusions to which these views
bring us, are, that the assessment law
is none too stringent, and tbat it is a
Hlitical crime to permit a man, worth
a million in money, to get off with a
oll tax, whilst his hard working neigh
bor, with fifty acresand a family, is
made to ay both real estate "and poll
tax. The more capital that can be
made to pay tax, the lighter will be the
burden' upon labor. Let us break
down this sort of class legislation and
give labor a fair showing with capital
The squabble everywhere gong on,
as to whether there is cholera in the
United States is, practically, of no sort
of consequence. There is a very fa
tal disease in the country, bearing the
marked features of its predecessors,
and the difference if any is not
visible to the eye of the sufferer.
Asia has no patent right for cholera,
and we see no reason why this country
may not manufacture a similar article,
and even more malignant, if the sick-
ctiiug corruption of the administra
tion is a predisposing cause.
Beast Butler is determined to be
tjoveruor of Massachusetts. If he
can get the votes of all of his own
stripe, he has a tatter showing than
any representative of the assumed re
liuemeiit of the State. We wish him
success, not because he deserves it,
but because it will be a fitting inflic
tiou upon a people whose purity and
refinement is only surface show.
The "Rural Sun'' comes back at the
Knoxvillc Chronicle, in a style so clear
and suggestive that the latter is thrown
upon the defensive, and must make
good his charges, or take the conse
quences. We allude to the attack up
on the Bureau of Agriculture and the
editors of the '"Suu." We are not in
the fight, but want to see justice done.
The New York World publishesa
telegram, which says that Gen. Beau
regard had nothing to do with the
equality uicetiug in New Orleans, the
Chairman of which is a Radical poli
tician of the same name, but no rela
tion. The Shah of Persia, through Min
ister Schenck, sends compliments to
U. S. 11 rant, and a puff of smoke and
a significant hiccough will be tele
graphed in reply to the salutation.
A GREAT 2USTAKE.
The political miscegenation, recently
attempted in Louisiana, is unwise,
humiliating and wholly inadequate to
accomplish the desired object. It is a
voluntary concession of all that Sum
ner's social equality bill was intended
to secure by law, but even a Radical
Congress was unprepared to perpe
trate so monstrous a wrong against
natural law, as perfect social equality
between the highest and lowest types
of humanity, and to enforce it by laws
enacted through the direct agency of
force and fraud. Sufferage was not
conferred upon the negro either as a
natural, or social right There are no
natural political rights, and though
legislative enactments may elevate, or
degrade society, in proportion to their
wisdom, or folly, its interior, or do
mestic relations can never be regula
ted by the most arbitrary laws. Sink
the white man to the moral and intel
lectual level of the negro, and social
equality will follow as an inevitable
result ; but to do this, the white man.
must bo un-made as God fashioned
him and re-made after a Radical, pu
Suffrage was conferred upon the ne
gro to make him the mud-sill of the
Radical party, and all that has fol
lowed that monstrous, unconstitutional
wrong, has been done to degrade and
insult the southern white man and to
sink him, not only to the level of tbe
negro, but, lower still, to the level of
the yankee carpet-bagger and the
southern scallawag. The negro un
derstands all this, and bound, as they
are to the Radical party, by books of
steal, they will laugh at the Louisiana
ruse, as their masters will teach them
to view it, and leave the whites nothing
to compensate them for their volunta
ry humiliation, but the recollection of
having honestly committed a very mis
chievous 11 under.
The God of nature stamped upon
the races of men, in indelible colors
their relative grades in the scale of
god-like attributes, and the history of
the whole world proclaims those marks
to be indelible, even by the hand of
conceited and profane Puritanism
which seeks to remodel and improve
the works of the . omnipotent Archi
tect. And it is to be regretted that the
whites, of Louisiana, thoughtlessly
stepped from the high pedestal upon
which nature planted them, in the vain
effort to enlist inferiors as allies, in
their struggle against "man's inhu
manity to man." The despot is never
mollified by concessions to his lawless
will, and looks upon patient forbear
ance as tbe ominous silence of the
gathering storm that may hurl him
from power, and this effort to seduce
the negro from allegiance to his Rad
ical master, will only serve to increase
his vigilance and tighten his hold
Judge Hunter, in the trial of Su
san B. Anthony for illegal voting, very
properly holds that the States have
rightful control over the question
of suffrage, and that the fifteenth
amendment confers the privilege upon
no citizens of a State except those that
arc the " wards' of the nation." There
fore neither Col. Anthony, nor any
other fast woman has a right to vote
until the privilege is confered by State
authority. His reasoning is correct
a'nd in accordance with law, but, in
discriminating between the rights of
the States, on this subject, and the
power exercised by the federal govern
ment, under the fifteenth amendment,
he makes no allusion to the fact that the
amendment was the result of fraud
and force and is therefore, null and
void under any just interpretation of
the original powers retained by the
States and the powers confered by
them upon the federal government.
As an act of usurpation and enforced
by bayonets, it is the duty of an honest
judge, in all similar cases, to explain
how, and why negro suffrage is an ex
ceptional case and by what sort of au
thority States rights have been viola
ted in this vital particular. All can
understand the law of force, and the
necessity for obedience, on the part of
the weaker sufferers ; but few can un
dcrstand how an honest judiciary can
enforce, without explanation or pro
test, a law procured by fraud and cxe
cutcd by force. It would be well too,
to fix a limitation, as to time, when
such fraud- shall be become hon
est and constitutional and beyond the
power of reversal.
In arguing the benefits to be derived
from the co-operation of farmers and
mechanics, the political influence it
will give them and prosierity that
must follow their efforts, if wisely di
rected, have been clearly pointed out.
But, in our judgment, one of the most
important benefits has been generally
overlooked we mean the moral and
intellectual improvement consequent
upon such organizations. In the ex
tract below, a gentleman of vast cx-
Icrieuce in co-operative moveiucuts
of the producing classes, very clearly
illustrates that point, and though he
confines his remarks to workshops,
they apply, with equal force, to Far
mer's Granges :
"If." writes Mr. Ludlow, "a co-one
rative workshop has sufficient elements
of vitality to outlast the inevitable
storms and struggles of its first few
years, it begins to develop a most re
markable series ot results. Lo-ojcra
tion first cxiiels from the shop drunk
cuness, and all ojcu disorder, which
are found wholly inconsistent with its
success; introducing in their stead a
number of small adjustments and con
trivances of a nature to lucihtate work,
or promote the comfort of the worker.
Bv decrees it exterminates, in truth.
the small tricks ami dishonesties of
work which the opposition ot interests
between the employers and employed
too ol'teu excuses iu the worker's eyes;
it is felt to be the interest of each and
all, that all work should be good that
no time should be lost, r ixity of em
ployment meanwhile, coupled with a
common interest, creates new ties be
tween man and man, suggests new
forms of fellowship till there grows up
a sort of family feeling, the only dan
ger of which is, its becoming exclu
sive toward the outside. Let this
state of t limps last a while and there
is literally developed a new type of
working-men, endued not only with
that honesty and frankness, that kind
ness and true courtesy, which distin
guish the best specimens of the order
wherever thev may be placed, but with
a dignity and elf-respect, a sense of
conscious freedom, which are peculiar
to the co-operator. The writer met
with such a type first in the Associa
tions Ouvrieres of Paris, lie has
gince had the happiness of seeing it
reproduced, vith variations as slight
as the di3i;rences of nationality might
render unavoidable, in English co-op-eratire
workshops ; ard therefore be
lieves that iis development may be
confidently looked forward to as a nor
mal result of co-operative production."
THE PRESS ASD THE PUBLIC. ,
The discussion of the relations of
the press to the public, and the public
to the press, it seems to us, can only
develope perhaps more clearly the
fact that the benfits and obligations are
mutual. Newspapers are rarely, if
ever established by a patriotic desire to
develope material resources, promote
intellectual and moral elevation, im
part wisdom to government, or keep
sleepless watch over the temple of
public liberty. The primary motive
to such enterprises, is to make a liv
ing, and more if possible. It matters not
however, whether patriotism or money
be the object, or the motive, the fact
remains, that if a paper is conducted
in the interests ofthe people judicious
ly advocating measures that are promo
tive ofthe general welfare the public
owes more to such a paper than the
price of subscription, and that some
thing more, is confidence and respect
In a business'sense, the paper has no
claim upon the patron beyond the price
paidforit Yet in a moral sense, it is
an insult to the higher attributes of
man's nature, to assume that he feels
none other than pecuniary obligations
to the pkss that labors faithfully for
the increase of knowledgeand virtue
for the development of every source of
prosperity and happiness. The patron
of the press hold towards it, the same
business relation that subsists between
any other association and its patrons,
but in the very nature of things, the
mechanic or farmer, while working for
his living, cannot impart the same
amount of useful information or exert
the same moral influence over the com
munity in which he labors. The me
chanic or farmer may be more honest,
more intellectual than the editor or
publisher and, therefore, moreregpect
ed, individually; yet, from the very na
ture of his vocation, he cajinot estab
lish the same relation between himself
and the public that ought to exist be
tween the public and the press. By
parity of reasoning, we infer that the
press, the self-constituted educator
and "censor mornm," owes far more to
the public than thanks for the prompt
payment of the nominal price of the
paper. Whist it is u nder no obligation
to work for nothing, self-respect and a
desire to be useful urge it to work for
all within the sweep of its circulation,
though, as some contend, its obliga
tions are to its subscribers alone.
We understand the difficulty in the
way of the Wintersmith-Lucas duel,
consists in the trouble of finding the
exact State line. If duelling be a
crime in both States, it is desirable
that Wintersmith, a Kentuckian, shall
stand on the Tennessee side, and Lu
cas, a Tennesseean, on the Kentucky
side, so that neither State can prose
cute for violation of its laws,. neither
of the offenders, being a citizen of the
State in which he attempted to com
mit murder. Any difficulty in inter
preting the code of honor, might have
been obviated by referring to the code
of law Of course, the Decalogue is
too old-fogyish a code of morals to be
consulted by the representatives of
Dr. Stribblinq sternly refused, the
other, day, to sanction a proposed in
crease of his salary, as Medical Su
perintendent of the Lunatic Asylum
at Staunton, Virginia. His conduct
has been proudly contrasted with thatj
ot the Congressional salary grabbers,
yet without due consideration of the
relative difference. It is just as impos
sible for the innate meanness of that
Congress to rise to the level of a noble
act, as for Dr. Stribbling's exalted na
ture to sink to the level of such sneak
The war still being waged against
the assessment law, savors more of
partizanship, and advice to assessors
to resign, and advising none to qualify
in their stead, is an act of hostility to
the best interests of the State, for
which we can divine no adequate, or
laudable motive. It is the duty of
the patriot to seek a remedy for exist
ing evils, not to aggravate them by
heedless denunciation and fomenting
We have often expressed the belief
that Radicals would burn the public
buildings in Washington, rather than
the record of their villanies should
fall into the hands of an opposition
administration. In confirmation of
this opinion, it is stated that the secret
history of the war has recently been
stolen from the war department. Theft

an umpire, and Hon. Jeff. Davis, of

A LETTER FROM RED BOILING
Editors Chronicle : Six happy
years spent in your county gave me
many acquaintances, and I trust some
sincere friends. Here is a letter for.,
you and them. -
It has fallen to my lot in life to
make many pilgrimages, long and short, :
but the roughest buggy ride of all the
past, was a trip from Sparta via. Liv
ingston and Gainsboro, to this some
what celebrated watering place. The
hills and rocks were not to blame for
they are pretty much as the Creator
formed them, but your correspondent
showed a want of judgment in the
route selected. An open .two seated
buggy, carrying four persons and a
trunk, was something of a load for one
horse to draw even on good roads, but
think of crossing the Alp3 or descend
ing one of the Pyramids with such a
turnout Three of our party usually
walked up and down hill, especially
down as we dropped from rock to rock,
but the fourth, our dumpy four year
old, held bis position, and was dub
bed "Squatter Sovereignty." Now
and then, a long winding branch ta
king its rise in the gorges of the high
hills, had to be threaded. The junior
partner on the other end of the cush
ion, said that a cork-screw was an apt
illustration of them. Our vehicle
stood it well, and as for "Sally," there
are two things she was never known
to flinch from a tough pull and a good
feed of oats. But our buggy succumb
ed at last It was not in the nature of
oak or hickory to endure it And our
faithful nag too, on nearly the last
stretch, lost all footing and lay sprawl
ing in utter helplessness, till the har
ness was loosed and she was disen
gaged from the craft. Well, variety is
the spice of life ; we got through it all
and reached the Springs without loss
of life or limb, and without material
damage to our means of locomotion.
The Springs are located in Macon
county, twenty-four miles from Carth
age, and about sixty from Gallatin.
There is a good turnpike all the way
from Gallatin and a regular stage line
The waters are sought mostly by those
suffering from calculi, and all diseases
affecting the kidneys. In this line,
some marvelous cures have been effect
ed. I told the proprietor he ought to
advertise, for if the public only knew
the efficacy of these waters, it would
be hard for him to furnish accommo
dations for all that would come. He
said his patients were advertisements
enough, that when one was cured, he
told others. In facj; the property has
been in litigation since the war, and in
an unsettled state, but is now reach
ing a more permanent footing. .
Capt Bennett keeps a good table
and has ample accommodations for his
patients. His rates are moderate, as
compared with other similar watering
places, being only eight dollars and a
half per week. It is my purpose to
remain here six or eight weeks. For
purposes of economy, I have rented
room and live in my "own hired house."
This though the proprietor will not
allow in any other case, as it would be
unjust to him after going to the ex
pense of preparing an extensive board
ing house to allow persons to live
around in the country and use the
waters. lie is a good friend of mine,
as he used to have command in
regiment of which it was my fortune
to be chaplain,
To persons suffering from lung dis
eases, we would say keep away from
here, and in this advice, Capt. Bennett
joins me. It is certain death for peo
ple of a consumptive habit to use the
water. To such the mountain air and
chalybeate water at Bon Air, near
Sparta, are far preferable.
A good many of my unanswered cor
rospondents, in your county, who may
read this, will please excuse my seem
ing want of promptness.

Editors Chroniclk: Having read
the snake story of Mr. Felts, as given
by "Anon" of Ashland City, in the
Chronicle of the 21st inst, "Anon"
having expressed a desire that J. M. L
should give an opinion on the subject
of Snake charming, we furnish you
the following :
Discarding altogether the statement
of Mr. Felts however reliable he may
be as a gentleman and whose veracity
we do not call in question still if the
question as to the power which snakes
are said (by common belief) to possess
is to be answered, it "must be done ac
cording to fixed laws of the animal
kingdom, and not by any one or more
isolated declarations, however well
they may be authenticated, or strongly
believed by the narrator.
To answer the question which Anon
has propounded, (hypothetically, which
would be the oily one we would at
tcnipt) would require more space than
we wish to occupy in the columns of
your paper. Still for the gratification
of Anon, and all others who may feel an
interest in the matter, will say that the
animal, as well as the mineral king
dom, is charged with electricity. In
the latter, we have a great variety, all
differing in their magnetic powers.
Science having availed herself of this
great law, has constructed the galvanic
battery by taking advautage of the
positive and negative quantities of elec
tric susceptibilities as exists between
them. Zinc (zincuni) and copper (cup
rum) and through them as positive
and negative agents, with iron (ferruni)
as the conductor, the world has been
converted into one family by the Morse
The animal kingdom has its warm
blooded and cold blooded, or positive
and negative animals. The highest in
the scale being that of birds, next
man, together with many other ani
mals. To the cold blooded, belong
fishes, as well as snakes, toads and
Doubtless these animals all differ
among themselves (as well as do the
metals) as to the amount of electric
force each possesses. When a man is
placed in contact with a battery with
the view of being magnetized, he is
negative to the battery and receives
the electric current he is then said to
be shocked or magnetized. When one
individual possesses a superior quan
tity of this vital force and causes oue,
of inferior power, to be placed in com
munion with himself, he then occu
pies the position of the battery in the
former case he being the positive, the
latter the negative ; in this case, the
negative becomes surcharged, so to
speak, with electricity from the for
mer. A his is metmerwn. which has
been the occasion of much deception.
These are facts appertaining to the
laws of science. . Now for the hypoth
esis as to the power of snakes to charm
birds and other animals. Can they?
If they can, by what agency is this
power accomplished? The only solu
tion we offer is through elect romag-
net ism. Then charming is simply
When we consider that all birds and
otfler animals of prey, are furnished
with ample means for capturing and
securing animals on which they sub
sist, and that snakes have no visible
means for their defence and subsist
ence, there is no very great stretch of
the power of reasoning to conclude,
thai snakes, which prey on small ani
mals, possess a secret power of captur
ing animals intended as food, and we
hazard the opinion, that this secret
agent is animal magnetism. The
moist air, the medium through which
the serpent emits his subtle fluid,
after having once fixed the eye of
the object of his victim, he proceeds
to charge the surrounding air, with
this unknown agent, his victim the
meanwhile inhaling it till his ner
vous system becoming surcharged, he
falls an easy prey to his charmer.
This effect, we believe to be similar to
that produced by the inhalations of
chloroform and ether by the human
subject. It would be pleasant to pur
sue the subject, but we must, at least
for the present, desist. '

There had been several deaths from
cholera before the 7th, of which we
have no record.
In addition to the deaths reported
in our table, we have heard it estima
ted that from fifty to seventy-five ne
groes who have died from cholera in
the suburbs of the city, have been
hurried in the country outside of our
cemeteries in comns made by persons
of their own color not engaged in
business as undertakers. It is there
fore probable that the number of
deaths from the disease reach if they
do not exceed six hundred. In the
eighteen days during which a careful
count has been kept, there have been
five hundred and sixteen deaths from
cholera, which shows a mortality al
most equal to that of 1800, when there
was a larger population in the city.
In 1804! the tot-il number of deaths
from Aug. 31 to Oct. 9, was about SM;
and the total number from the 7th to
the 24th of September, both inclusive,
was 508, but fifty-two more than for
the corresponding number of days in
this month. The highest number of
deaths in one day in 1850, was 0, on
the 24th of September; then the re
turns were made up to six o'clock, and
included all the deaths to that hour.
The nunibtr who died on the 20th of
this month greatly exceeded that, as
our table only shows the number that
were buried up to five o'clock. We
have heard the number who died on
that day estimated by gentlemen, in
whose opinion we place a good deal of
confidence, at fully oue hundred. The
hisitory of the present visitation of
cholera, shows it to be of a more vir
ulent type than the Asiatic cholera, or
that about the name of which there
was no dispute. The American cholera
may therefore be set down as more fa
tal than that of Asiatic organ. As m
former visitation, the disease is now
yielding more readily to medical treat
ment, and the abatement ot the past
three days insnires hones of its earlv
disappearance. Union and American.

The Use of Cistern Water.
The Gallatin exchange has this to
say about the use of cistern water :
"We have often called the attention
of our eiticens to what we regard as a
well settled fact that those who habit
ually use cistern water are nearly, if
not entirely exempt from attacks of
cholera. All the experience and in
formation that we have leads us to this
conclusion. During the prevalence of
the epidemic in Nashville in 1849-dO
it was often remarked. During the
present visitation, although it is rag
ging in Nashville, Edgefield is exempt
from its ravages, and we. understand
that not a single case has originated
there, although a few have died there
who contracted it in Nashville. We
learn, also that there is a like experi
ence in Memphis. In one ward of the
city, where cisterns are plentiful, not
a si ngle caes has occurred, At Ularks
ville, where nearly every family is
supplied with a cistern, the
citizens feel a sense 5f security
imparted by their . - possession.
In 1836, the cholera swept the
town there were no - cisterns. In
1849-50, it was observed that there was
not a case in a family that used the
rain water. ' At once the citizens went
to work and so many were built that a
place is not regarded as desirable
without a cistern upon it It was
proved in JSOO, when the cholera swept
Nashville, carrying off 820 persons.
The records at Clarksville show that
there was a mortality of 70, of whom
69 were negroes living in the outskirts,
and one white man, an inebriate, all of
whom drank spring and well water.
And we are informed that the citizens
of Clarksville, amid the universal panic
that overspreads the whole country,
are cool and confident, and as exempt
from fear as though the cholera wait no
nearer than the jungles of India. a Th is
feeling of confidence itself, is priceless
in time of panic. We may mention, in
addition to the many other facts sup
porting our theory, that the cholera
has never prevailed in a free-stone
county. Surely, these are sufficiently
well established points to enlist gener
Those of our citizens who are not
blessed as the people of Edgefield are
with cisterns, and who are compelled
to use hydrant water,, would do well to
use filterers, which is the next best
thing to cisterns.
