The Great Problem solved at Last. F. A. Tyler, Esq , has at last solved the great problem which has puzzled the brains of so many long heads for the last twelve or eighteen months (with Col. McDavitt at their heal) of getting the city out of debt, and putting her finances on a. cash basis. How eiraple and plain the whole sulject is managed in s very few words, and yet how Intri cato the subject has been, when pre sented to the best financiers of our city. lbe whole story is this : sell what can be sold, and collect what is due the city. Thia puts the whole subject in a nutshell. Now, friend Tyler, put the ball in mo- tien.

Th3 iron bridge over Running Water, on tho Chattanooga Railroad, has been completed. It is ono hundred and thirty feet above the bed of the stream. The Vioksburg Times says: "The Mississippi Central Rtilroad, under the management of tho Southern Railroad Assoclntiou, is gaining great favor. They hnve recently added six splendid Lidioi PBnenger Cars, costing an average of 700 each." A correspondent of the Fort Smith Herald of tho 20;h insr., eays : "The first ten miles towards the construction of the Little Rock and Fort Smith Railroad, is now advertised to be put under contract at once. Everything warrants the fact of an early completion of tha road." The Central Pacific Rtilroad Compa ny finds It exceedingly difficult to keep their employe es from deserting, on ac count of tho White Pine gold excite ment. They ship car loads of workmen, who get their ride for nothing, and striko for the gold region when they get as near as the road can carry them. Speaking of the Eyansville, Hender son and Nashville lUHroad, the Etrans ville Journal eays : " Under the efficient superlntender.ee of Rjbert A. Bacon, Esq , trains run regularly, and tho road Is already doing a fair business. It is said that an average of seventy-five pas sengers are carried over the road daily. As is usual upon the opening of new rail roads, new towns aro springing up along tho line of the track," The Athens Post statoa that Guv. Patton, President of tha North and South AUbatna Railroad Company, has gonsto New York to toe after tbo interest of his road, in which undertaking he car ries the best wishes for, and the entire belief of the people in his early and com plete eucctss in all the arrangements ne cessary for an early beginning of the great work, This Is good news to the public generally, and we look for ener gotio work in this enterprise, whloh Is of much importance to the people of thia section of ihs Htate, A gentleman largely engaged In transportation, baa proposed to charter from the Biltimoro and Ohio Railroad, the passenger trains on the Washington Branch Road, f jr three months from the 4th of March next.

The General Assembly. Friday, au- tnorized comptroller iiiacsbura to bor row, on the best terms practicable, money to meet the present enormous deficiency in the Treasury. A petition was in circulation at tho Capitol Friday evening for the signa tures of Senators' names to petition the Governor to disband or furlough the mi litia, and to rescind the proclamation declaring martial law. Gen.' Cooper has be3n instructed by a House resolution to make a thorough investigation into the Barmore murder, and, if possible, to bring the perpetrators to justice. Barmore had some very bit ter enemies among the Radicals of Nash ville. As suggested by the report of the P'ordner, after a labored investigation, tne murderers may do in tms locality. Tbejacason Tribune, of Saturday, says : Four companies of militia have already been sent to this ill-fated, coun ty. This move leaves Gin. Cooper with 1200 troops, still at his disposal, and indi cates that the other eight counties, em braced in the proclamation, are not quite so rebellious aa Giles. The Ku Jvlux, It is eaitii had their origin in that part of the State, and ibi why the nailed hand of the warrior is laid so heavily on them. Wj do not belive thpro over was. or ever will b?, a Ku- Klux iu Madison county. The idea oi their existence here la a myth, a " will-o'-the-wisp," unless we are very much deceived. Our statement is not worth mucb, and wo give it gratuitously. Oar authorities can make the most of it, John Brownlow publishes a card in the Banner and the Union and Ameri can, in which he is particularly heavy wn Fletcher. Listen to him : " Respect fully to all men save Mr. Fletcher, I point to this par-mark of suspicion upon his testimony. To two himself and myself they aro wholly unneeded for correct information, for both ha and I well know that neither such conversa tion or the substance of it ever oecurred ; and, convinced as I am, that tho wbolo purpose and desire of Mr. Fletcher in this matter has been my personal wrong and injury, bv the base" and cowardly effort to oast upon my ubarautur the shadow of thia school fund odium though I stood far beyond the reich of its substance, I must say, that in testify ing to the truth of the above conversa tion with me, he took upon himself the guilt of a malicious, willful and deliber ate perjurer." The Banner of Saturday says : "We hoard it reported in tho city yesterday, that the Militia sent to Pulaski several days since were already beginning to give the people in that section some trouble. Rumor says that several of these fellows went into the store of Ezell & Co. and took possession of two bags of coifee, giving a'n order ou tho' county tiustee for the payment of tho same. Another party stopped some wagons loaded with otton, and made the teams ters onload and .then tcok poseessiou of tha teams, to go as they said ou a fjrag iog expedition to the country. It was also stated that the militia stationed there bad ordsre to arrest forty promi nent citfgsns to hold as hostages for the good behavior cf tho people generally, and that four citfzeus of the county wou'd be arrested shortly, tried by drum beat court martial, and ordered to be shot. Acorreepondentof tho Banner, of Fri day, writing from Huntingdon, Carrol county, under dato ofv23d lust., says : y )ma time Bince a man by the name of Fiippln, of Gibson county, laid claim to a mule in the pc siession of Fred. H. Hen derson. Flippin instituted somo sort of suit, (perhaps replevin; before a justice of the peace, to recover the mn!o. From some cause nothing was u'oue; and per haps another euit instituted what has been done with that I have not heard. I know, however, Henderson's idea was that Flippin wished to get possession of the mule without giving respontible se curity, as required by law in actions of repjevin, I hear that Flippin was a Con federate soldier about three years, and was afterwards a Federal soldier abiut one year, and that ho was leader of the crowd who sometime einee released some men from our jail, and is supposed to be associated with them. On yesterday Flippin, hia brother and some one else, went to Henderson's and took the mule aud started off. Hender son gathered a crowd of friends, Hu. Swayne, Jim. CoviDgton and several others, and started in pursuit, overta king Flippin and bis friends somewhere about old Joe. King's, commanded them to surrender ; whereupon Fdppin aud his friends turned aside into the woods, dis mounted and opened fire upon the pur suing party, which was returned. Flip pin was killed his brother and some one else with them were wounded. None of Henderson's crowd got hurt. About one hour since Henderasn and bis crowd rode into town (all armed) for tho pur pose of giving themselves up, and I be lieve they are now doing something with the matter at the courthou38. A few minutes after they rode into town a tele gram was received here saying: "Tell Henderson to keep a sharp lookout for Skullbone." I learn that a Crowd of Flippin'a friends was in MeLsmoresviile this morning. What will be the mult I canisot tell, but I fear 'ti3 not all over yet. I know nothing of the facts, and have not conversed with any of the par ties, but have given you merely what Madam Rumor eays upon the subject, supposing Bhe will reach you in some form.

In Mobllo recently a main was fought for 54000, and $20,000 aro said to have changed hands on it. By the way, speaking of cock-fighting reminds us of a little story, aa the " late lamented " used to say. About tha time the representatives of the preea were about starting to Mobile to attend the convention, eeveral gentlemen of sport ing proclivities, wishing to attend the great "chicken dispute" which waa about to come off at the sams place, tele graphed to Gen. Murdock, President of the Mobile and Ohio R. R., to know if they would be passed over that road at half price. The General's reply wa3 that ou the Mobile and Ohio road luxuries had to be paid for full price. The geata didn't go. TKKIV'ESSEE RIYEB. trocetdings of tlie Convention at Clialtaiioag:r.
