Many of the mem ben, of the Letfulature have (Pne to Franklin, bore the elite of Maury, Williamson and lsavidaon counties, with delegations from e.'ery part of the State, have gathered to do honor to the Agricultural Fair. You eannot imagine how much these fairs inspire the people of the rountry, or how beneficial they prove In the promo tion of that kind of intelligence in need rf which our farmer have so-long stood. frVoin what I can learn, this Williamson fair ia success a grand success, such as that of heel i ; ought to he. The bhow of manufactured goods, agricultural Im plement and farming products ia large, and aueh as to reflect credit npon old Wil liamson. The quiet that pervades the towm U felt in p .litical rirclea, and the cliuues and combination against Johnson are, for one day. silent. I do not hear anything le yond the simple asseveration by the friends of the ex-President that no eom t4us:icd can be made strong enough to ruU him of! the t . k. The small men (hat bare been pitted against him ar the less hopeful of success their cases are desperate, and Ihey clutch at every straw. The Interests of Memphis are lieing well attended to by her Industrious represen tative. MiOX OCJi SPECIAL ('..RRESINlSrlENT. Nashville, Wednesday morning. The usury laws have iKvoinethemesof discus sion in and outside the Legislature. In rAcr that they may lie liheralli.-.l to the vreaieat possible extent, and that aeon--venUoaai rate may lie fixed at li! r cent., Mr. Towoaend has intnsluced a bill leav ing it to le detlned solely by the parties to ssiutracts. I was not a little aurprised lo lincl Fast Tennessee ns aaeentini; to Mr. Townseud's proposition. Hitherto Fast Tei,nessee has been oposed to any ret .rm in our stupid code affecting this question, and there is little doubt that a conven tional rate often or twelve per cent, will be approved by the ileneral Assembly. Illustrative of the disposition of the ilonse to avoid partisan and angry discus sions, a Mil assigning special seata iu the gallery to colored citizens was laid on the table by an almost unanimous vote. An aged wiseacre and Iieniocrat from this county sjte!y and justly said that colored people have con ducted themselves here with great pro priety ; but few now enter the gallery ;thcy egregaie theiuse'n es, of their own voli tion, froattno whites; and there is no need, until some offense, is committed or some rule of propriety vitiated, for any action o the proposition. It jnuperly went to the tomb of forgotten follies in tagisla lion, a mighty bone-yaid iu this city. Oov. Senter's message U a marvel of taste in letters. There are only one or two I ertatl inaccuracies in this admirable State liAper. 1 speak of it, mark you, as a lit erary production. There are para graph faultless iu terms, felicit ous in exprmtiou and beautiful imagery. When ue saw ijut, Siguier last HMMbbW, ali dusty and travel-worn, bis tastes per verted by constant collisions and contact with Bill Stokes, wheu his speecfee, were characterized by many faults ud few rhetorical or other beauties, we hardly u:i lp.it. 1 at his hands the production of a suw paper which would do credit to Ihe lntetWtUtai culture of Thomas A. K. Nelson, Jordan bu.'Jmss, or Judge John M. bss To-day the interest that attahaa .0 f . w Hi-nter's message is only lessened uy the anxiety incident t contradictory dis patches from ilhio. If Pendleton te fleeted he will surel be the next Demo Tlic candidate for the Presidency, and Packer will not again, as happened in (he New York Jleuiocratic Convention, i nisr Pendleton's claims to be post poned that a great wight usurp the place of a greater nai thst Heyuiour might supplant the faull'asa iitstcainsn apd orator of the Weal. Packer etuiut wield the power of Pennsylvania at will, and must go down lo oblivion. Neither wealth no genius can undo the SMftfl done him by this defeat of yesterday. I tit force of ids and of Seymour's fall lifts Pendleton far above all other politi cal philosophers of the day, and if the uionev ed oligarchy. hich holds Amerieau destinies In the hollow of its hand, suffers us u elect another Prseideut, Pendleton's local trnmph is a sure augury of victory in the broSoU'r arena of a istntest (or the J'reaideney. It ia believed that Johnson will got 46 votes in the House on the first ballot, the w bole number of votes being 140; M in the Mouse and 1S in the Senate. The Hvostrt u ill give him, it is said by his friends, U votes. The realization of these assertion makes Mr. Johnson Senator on the Itrst allot. llfeiio e.,n-edel b many that Mr. Flliaridge ia off lite track.

Ueve, and have therefore to add that Johnson's strength i dcried in part from an extraordinary ahuroe Foote has at tacked biin! Mankind at once exclaimed, "Johnson should represent the sove reignty and statehood of Tennessee." Serionsly, Johnson will be voted for in order that there may be no contest by which the harmony and usefulness of the legislature might tie impaired. X.Y.Z. SECOND LETTER. Xahhvili.b, Wetlnrxlny night. Rain, cold, mud, Etheridge, Johflson and the Constitutional Amendment are themes of dissuasion this dreary evening. The Han iter, which, erstwhile, loved and admired Johnson, is filled with execrations, and Johnson so vilified that I, who never voted for him, am constrained to say that Sumner, Wilson, Phillips and tireeley never knew how to abuse Andrew John son. The task was achieved with infinite skill by Oov. Foote, in the Banner. The classical taste with which denunciation is robed in verbiage which Addison and Sterne might have envied, save that they excelled in simplicity as Mr Foote does in Johnsonian pomp ous verbosity, indicated at once the author of the Ranner't effusion. The quotation from Juvenal, which serves as a text for the discourse, ia reproduced by Byron in the first stanza of his English Bards and Scottish Reviewers. Byron gives no credit to the Roman poet, and vet the difference between the verse ot the British Lord, and of the ancient satirist, is simply that which separates the English from the Roman tongue The curious in auch matters are referred to Juvenal, and to any edition of Bvron's works, that this parallelism of ancient and modern thought may Isj illustrated. and to the published hiatorv of Mrs. Surratt's trial for a refuta tion of the gravest charge preferred against Mr. Johnson. The application for Mrs. Snrrstt's pardon, signed by members of the Military Commission, was quietly stowed away in a pigeon-hole by Stanton, and the President never saw or heard of it till after the execution. Radicalism foand nothing to rondemn till the Presi dent denounced its destructive public pol icv. It is also a national fact in this dis cussion that the majority of the Military Commhision, which signed this petition for executive clemency, only asked that Mrs. Surratt's sentence should be com muted from the death penalty to impris onment for life. Jf you will read the lit tle book published by Joe Holt at the time, containing the luster' of the trial, you will find in its pages no reference in the proper place, to this application for Andrew Johnson's Intervention in behalf of the murdered woman. In truth, Holt and Stanton did not intend that the Pres ident should pardon Mrs. Surratt. It might be added, just here, that Johnou held his place at that time by a most uncertain tenure. He was charged with i-onnivaiwe to Mr. Lincoln's assassins. Ue dared not, if lie had deemed it .:-:, to ant to Sherman's plans of recon struction. If he had pot leen suddenly aud unexpectedly inaugurated, Grant would have been declared dictator. John son was forced to mot e the helm with the softest toneh, and very slowly and skiil fullv did he at last turn the bow towards that haven of freedom and repose In bioh the ship of State will yet be securely an chored. Men who inveigh so bitterly against Johnson's acts forget the circum stances that environed him. The North ' BinbitteriHl against the so-called slave aristocrat v, and that all might lie par doned and the h'ottb at the u base appeased, the g'ju.tMO clause was in serted iu the atnuoaty proclamation. Johnson did the utmost possible good for the South, and if he had attempted i, ..... could have effect ed nothing. Etheridge, as I telegraphed you yester day, is sorely injured, perhaps by his own present violent botiiit, to Johnson, per haps iiu.re by the violence ol subi ot Ins over-zealous frleuds, and even more by those who only hate Johnson more tbau they contemn Etheridge. Etheridge will be sacrificed the very moment it is deemed possible to elect any man whose political history is wholly diiferent from his own, and it is often s i.-i among unscn's op ponents that the man who will be Senator has uot yet been named in connection with the place. I aiu of the opinion that Johnson will be elected on the first or second ballot. Most members ol the two House object seriously lo any politest, They want peace, quiet and devotion to hard work, and whenever they are satis lied, as they must be, that Johnson is much strong l.'jan any present candi date, they w ill couventraw ;;pon him. Let me suggest another u. t;. i Thero will be a thorough reformation of courts in Memphis, a.. J a mighty, sweeping reduction of salaries, SMM state officers in Memphis simple clerks absorb annually not less than 75,00Uof tin. i i in. ,.:ev. The Sheriffs income is enormous, wlicu tAd Legislature ad journs there will be no officer iu 'eu sce receiving a larger stipend ibaiiiio ,. Seuter. Mark the prediction. Oulce holderu, already alarmed, are engaged iu smoothing over the extravagant acts, incited by parit, favoritism, which en riched Barbour Lewi ana a a;-my of pjaceuieu. It is estimated that Ihe Hftale will saye iext year in official salaries alone, three bundled lbouand dollars. To this consummation yourenator, Mr.f'ubbins, directs earnest attention. No personal influences can diver, hliu trolu his chosen line of conduct. He has borne lusiid'era- ia taxation long enough, and never ls lievedthat Lublic ofH-es were created as hospitals lor su;k pariy demagogues and morally diseased leaders in H retched ward meetings. There will soon lie waning and gnashing of teeth wheu the liiiic rings gather to consider the distribution of the spoils about Memphis. Pity them! ot, pity them! Their days of splendor and glory ae M ijjorc. The best thing, after li.ttf. alsive considered, which will probably be done by the Legislature, is the unquaiided repeal of all x usury laws Twenty mlllioMa of money will thus lie brought into Tennessee or evoked from its biding plait. Two millions of money Ijelonging to Tennesseeans is now loaned in other States. This will !si brought home. Then, if Pendlelontriiimph in Ohio am) Johnson Tennessee, capital ists will ion van bond into railway stocks, and every great Mouthern road will be sjK-edily built. The Southern Pa citlc will draw to it half the idle wealth of bulls and bears in Wall street, and not only our btate, but the whole country will at .nee enter upon a new and grand era of unprecedented prosperity. The opposition to Johnson constantly endeavors to concentrate Aral on one anil leading Conservatives and Democrats, in sist that Johnson must be elected, lie is wanted in the Senate lo turn backward the tide of Radical innovations, and pre serve intaet what is left of constitutional liberty. A true statesman and profound thinker la needed In the great council . .amber of American empire. Johnson, Just now, Is peerless, and whatever his faults, he has weathered a storm which would have overwhelmed and destroyed any other leader of parties or any law giver of our day. X. Y. Z. PROM AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT. Nashville, Oetober 13. Mr. Jones, of Shelby, has pn .posed in the Ifonse to abolish BarlKinr Lewis' Infamous court, and re-establish the old magistrates' court s. To the hitter branch of this prop osition there is strong opposition country magistrates there is no hostility, but there are many in the city, and those chosen by the worst class of voters, who can never be trusted to manage the finances of the county. It is, therefore, proposed to reorganize Barbour Lewis' court, and hare three tlrst-rato men put upon the bench. Leonard, of course, will be obliterated. He should retire now before his little pate tails from his un gainly shoulders. Messrs. Townsend and Cubbins oppose the reorganization of the old county court, for reasons above sug gested. Many of the best business men and citizens of Memphis have written to Nashville approving their course. P. C. P. FROM OfR EXCHANGES. The St. Louis Republican says edltorial lv, under the heading "The Tennessee Senatorial Election:" This subject, which excites a lively interest all over the coun try, is the all-absorbing theme in Tennes see. Mr. Johnson is thus far the strong est aspirant to the place, with the best chances of success. He is at Nashville now. with his headquarters at the new hotel lately opened, the Maxwell House, and is electioneering with the Johnsoniaa vigor aud skill that has never vet failti: him in Tennessee. His rooms are there sort every night of throngs of members of t lie Legislature. A few days ago there was placed on the desk of each Senator and Representative, a package containing the several veto messages which Mr. John son had unsuccessfully opposed to the re eonstruction scheme of Congress. Em erson Ftheridg'? is the next leading aspi rant, and, indeed, the contest lixs now prettv well narrowed down to Johnson and Etheridge. The latter is a man of first rate ability, and large influence, and pos sesses an electioneering capacity scarcely inferior to that of his distinguished rivaf. r.thertdge is trom West lennessee, and the contest partakes largely of the old lo cal struggle between the two section-of the state. The Nashville Vnion -inJ Anrri IU Of Tuesdav sav: (iu the Juth of Heeen ler, 1SU5, Mr. Etheridge, being then iu W ash ington city, wrote a length v letter to Mr. John li. Perryiijan, Esq., from which we untKH the following extraeu uistifyingthi President's policy and exeiilpating the P.Rsident from ail l.ersonal or official re- sponsibiiittes for his arrest or the perso- utions by which it uhs nil lowed. Mr. Etheridge said: loose who attempt to mauo I tie im pression that I am opposed to the liberal and comprehensive policy which the President has inaugurated lo restore rep resentation l,i he S'ates first alve named, (Virginia, Jiorth Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas,) are themselves the secret enemy of both the President and his purposes; thev will soon lie the nublic.astliev now are the privat" allies of Suiiiiifc.- .

I cordially approve the axiomatic truths therein so fran! .' avowed; and without reference to the opinions or u ;!:es of any one, I shall consider it arj imperative 'utv, and in no spirit of captious criticism, to give his po''" a iieariy support in the hp pending conflict a conflict Vhicb I regard as inevitable, unless tho Piesiiicut, con trary to ali just expectation, should aban don the principles of the message tor the dangerous dogmas of his Radical enemies.

(invention of Mav, lSw, The report says that the population o tne whole countrv was nearlv euualiv ui videii between the North and South. The increase of the two sections in population may be taken as the same. According to the census of 1H60, the population of the two sections was as follows: .North, 1,.VS.182; South, 12,048,1451. This shows that of the emigrants and their descend ants who had come into the country during the seventy years, from 175V) to Juno, and were then living, 7,321.03.1 more bad settled in the North than had settled in the Huuth. Aci-ordlng to the estimates made every foreiirn immigrant who settles iu this countrv adds to the national wealth 11600. but, to be clearlv within the limits, your Committee will assume it to be 1500 per head. Ihe calculation is simpiv 500x7'U,0:!:i -:.05i.5U. The industrial capital of the North, over and above the South, from immigration alone, has thus been increased bv this enormous sum The North has outstripped the South iu tne struggle tor material wealth. Throb jee; ot your Commit tee is how to devise for the south to partie pstein the advantages of immigration. Most, if not all of the Southern Stales since the war, have adapted measures for the encouragement of loreign immigration. These measures have lot been attended with much suc cess, as the emigrating class of Europe is wholly uninformed in regard to the Southern States, and is from ignoranoe, and in some sort of .misinformation, greatly prejudiced sgainst them. This ignontnee must be dispelled and preju dices removed. This ignorance and pre judice applies with equal force to all of the Southern States. This obstacle should be i lovtn. .Vll lltlj, ei r li 'II J' l l 1 1 .1 1 llin soutn is uusmtcd to the white man.

The Jessential points in the re port are as follows: " The iniDortance ot devising a practi cable plan for protecting the lands from overflow, by a system ot levees, wan In operation before the war, which afforded tolerable protection; these have passed away, and the soil remains as fertile as before, and capable of almost Indefinite production, with capacity to yield annu ally more ef l he precious inetais than all of the mines of the countrv together. How shall this region he developed? How shall the losses be rebuilt 7 Private enterprise alone will attain these results. I hose lands should tie reclaimed bv the aid of joint stock companies, organized on the principles that govern railroad compa nies. Let each pound of cotton, or other produce raised under protection of the levee, be taxed, with every acre of avail able land, and the company be authorized to collect this tax, anil when built it should be protected and maintained with telegraphs, section masters, tug boats, etc. In short, it should bj thor- ughjy protected in seasons of high water; and thus the lauds would yield remunerative dividends to the stockholders. The Committee would re commend the favorable attention of Con- gross to such isuupanies, if organized, and would urge that thev be aided by the i ivernnient, but they do not believe Hie work can be done exclusively bv the Federal or Slate Governments. The Committee refers to the success of he Pacific Railroad, and believes that the next important work for Congress to 10 is to aid in developing the alluvial lands of the lower Mississippi. They su li nn tor adoption by the Convention tin- mowing; Heultvil, That though the Mississippi iver is national iu its character, and ho general care of It lielongs the Government that anv system adopted for the reclamation and protpe- lon irom overflow of tho .Mississippi river, should bo comprehensive and uni- orm tnrougnoiit the whole valley, and DOOM is? based upon surveys and exam- nations made by the proper scientific Ulcers of the General Government, and carried into execution imder the general supnrvision m that ( tnvornment.

A History of this Ratsbane, and How he Sold Grant a House. An Old, Artful and Sactimonious Dodger Caught. iKW onK. October 12. The result n( the panic are coming more and more to ugni, showing the terrible agony it must nave occasioned in some quarters. The suicide of Ktlly Mitchell, the famous liquor dealer, whose body was found lying iu his popular saloou, almost entirely eaten by rats, it now appears was caused by heavy losses iu the New York Central, which M preyed upon his mind that he became tired of life. For years back, by industry and ierseveranee, Mitchell had iieeumuliited property valued at SOO,t)00, and it was only during tho recent excite- nient that ho entered upon Wall street speculations with John Morrissev and others, who also lost heavily, bnt had be come accustomed to the tips and downs wuii-u accompany stock speculations. Corbin, President Grant's brother-in-law, is no a really sick, consequent upon the intense excitement nihowing the ex pon of the last few days. Oreat fears are enterlainou of his recovery. Rumors about lien. Ibttlertietd, the Sub-Treasurer, are flying about wlldlv through the streets, and he is said to be' the only man in the ring who reallvhas made any mon ey, owing to a timely disposition of his share previous to the break of the market by his chief. A committee has left tor Washington to urge his removal ; and Grant will no doubt lie compelled to make the uhange with the example of Chan cellorsville before him, where ien. Hut tertield, it was reported, would permit no dispatch to leave the Held until he made good his gold sales, The last but not the least of the Important results of the panic is, that Peter H. Sweeny and Win. II. Tweed, the Tammany leaders, are ready to break wtlh the Kriering, ow ing lo 'lie combinations which have come to light between Fisk ami Gould and prominent Republican Treasury officials. At the annual meeting of tho krie Road Directors, to Is- held to-morrow, Swesnv and Tweed will probably resltm, and the result will be that at the next session of the Leg! slat u,r.o, i!l acts passed last winter favorable lc the Kriu will lie repealed. The Democrats will certalnlv carry the Slate wuti a heavy majority, and the Krie Will then lm taken care of for nlavin-r In. to the hands of Republican otficiaie. nW l.iKK, October II. Document wore printed to-day, showing that Corbin was once Chjfk nf the Omvimittee on oiaitii:;, aud vi uiie th-rc blackmailed Mr. S tmuel Liwrcuce, a woolen manufacturer! of Massachusetts, qui of one thousand dollar. The House of Representatives ordered an investigation, and Corbin was compelled to resign. The documents are made up from the. report of the commit te in laaa. When Congress was BfcOtyi iev mg a heavy tax on whisky, ; uruin was among the first to leant tne purpose or the f i nance Commit the information, at once ca,s.t about him for opportunities to no iu by it.

UJs next step was to combine bis; Congression al information v, UU ids financial and mer- i ne tiocmneut oo.n,tatns tne following: "Wln-n Corbin determined tu change his t;ise of nperaiions from Washington SS New York, ho at once put hiselegaiu mansion tn the former city In the market for sale, but for a number of months was unable to lind a purchaser at any price. Indeed, though one of the most SJsassoiH and elegant dwelling Iu Washington, its locution wit undesirable, and, at tho time of its ojW, O - iiin was uuabln to dispos of it. At last lie nnprosched Con. Grant with a proposition, nut (Irant urged thai the value of tho house was beyor his means, and declined to !...n,ie a uur- iin ..en rs l ieu.

Still the Ueneral hesitated, t waa, he insisted, too muob, moiiev for him to put u a house. At this point i urbin suggested to Hillver that if ilrsnt -would, juy the house the pub lie would quickly help him pav for ii. and pointed out the obligations the na tion rested under tp, tiiu coiuiiiernr of the rebellion, and ailded: 'You s.e (raut a,;au,, ami get him to take the house, and then wo will go to Ney York and raise fund to pay for it.' Hillver went to (irant with l lus suggest Ion anil found no dilli etilly in inducing the General to accept the proposition, it Isdng distinctly under stood that Corbin would interest, hiniseit in raising a testimonial tht weuld'enabio the (ienera! tv, preitipily pay the mort gagd. When these fire'lminnries were ar ranged it wa found necessary lo come to New York toexecute the papers, and lieu ('rant announced his intejttii.u to be iu the city during toe next week, when the papers could be executed aud exchange..). 11 'came, according to auii.unl uient. and stopped at the Mntrapoiifun Hotel, where he was at once besieged bv a crowd of vis I tors, who would not be shaken off, in deed, so great was the rush to see the herd oi me war, mm it was found necessary in go elsewhere to iransawt the- appointed business. Aoourdtnujiv, an evening wa 6 when all interested should meet at Mr. ("Sorbin's bouse, on Twenty-svent h streei , and close the transaction. At the ap pointed time there assembled at Mr. Cor bin's nsrlors the following company; lien. I . S. (Irani, Mr. Abel R. Corbin, aiid Mrs. Corbin, (since deceased i. Mr. F. K.

Kno, as w itness to the paper. The papers having l"en previously drawn and mutually ex an.'ued by the attorneys of the two" con tracting parties, were now formally read, signed, sealed and delivered, and Oen Orsnt became the owner in fee simpic, and atisoluteof the Washington mansion, and Mr. Corbin became the pessessor of a mortgage upon the same for U0,000, with interest at llmper cent. Within a very few days after these occurrences, a com mittee of pmmlnent gentlemen of wealth assembled in a private room st the Fifth Avenue Hotel, on the invitation of Mr. Amos R, Eno, to consider the propriety of making a testimonial presentation to Oen. Orant. Who composed that mi pan v, or ail that was said and done at that meet ing, it is unnecessary now to rehearse. It will be sulBeient to say that Mr. Abel R. Corbin was not present; bnt Mr. A. R. Eno was present, and was the leading spirit of the meeting. When it was urged by a prominent merchant. Presi dent (irant s subsequent choice for Secretary of tho Treasury, thai the Oovernmenl should " reward Oen. Grant ss the British Government had rewarded the Duke or Wellington, and that individuals ought not lobe called upon for contributions to such a testimo nial, Mr. Eno assented to that proposition, on general principles, but remarked thai as the Government would not or did not take bold of the matter, It was the duty of the citizens to do it; and remarked that Gen. Grant was uow living In a bouse up on which there was a mortgage ot thirty thousand dollars. This hint produced a telling effect upon the large hesrtetl merchants and capitalists there assembled, and It was determined to raise tSe mean at once to pav off his moriuage.
