Don Piatt, in a recent letter from Washington to the Cincinnati 0,i fiterc;al,eays: If any half-dozen spec tators in the paliery of the House were called upon, separately, to poiut out, in the crowd of members below, the one that, from his fret-up, gave the best evidence of being there through some violent eruption, or mud volca no, in our social and political forma tion, each would select a ijueer. littie, slender creature, who, continually shambling about, exhibitsa body thut came into the world only half made up, and that so lamely that even 'Moses & Son fail to give it the semblance of a mrtn. His small, beardless face has but one expression, and that is of iow cun ning. His head ofdry, withered hair -uvvests jmverty of soil, and cries out bra top dre-iiif; oi r-orae rich frrtili- . i is a i-ross u I ween Uriah lleej ftd Tim Dotlge. Ufa maimer carries in it an humble ioiogy for leing alive, and his movements suggest moral irregularity. This is the Hon. W. J. Smith, of the tiglnh District of Tennessee, com mon !v called, where he is best or worst known, "Old Jerusalem." His political career, lately investigated and about to te published byiiiellou-e Committee on Elections, one of the "mo-t extraordinary ever known, iiher in tic'.ion or fact, and goes to sfcow what the South has brought upon IteeW by the wicked aud unholy war against the best government in 'a" world. H'jjere old Jerusalem originated is -u-wt. There is a belief that he was ei, ' il) a moraent of extreme nausea Ir'm the State of Vermont. Bu- I am unwilling that the Gn-eu Mountain State should be heid respon sible for such an evil. As seven cities claimed the honor .I'l being the hirth RftjM of llomer,so tVirty-x Statts W prepared to make alhdavit that oZdJaraaateaa did not ordinate with them. . ' ... . The first sre know of him, positive ly, he was a peddfar of peanuts and MUfrdmpa ou the Memphis and Cha final on Bailraad. it was 'lK that he had tailed in the house sud tiigii-paiiitiiig baainwWi and a iodoru uinl dejected mail Was said to be aoout. ouce a partner in the ou-iuess, but alter tne only remaining a--ei.

For tins 1 cau-inot vouch, aud must say that it is very doutjtiul. But lor the peanut and tfuui-drops 1 can answer, as I have conversed with intelligent and re spectable people, who have suffered from seeing aud dealing with the trailer in that capacity hen the war broke out Old Je- niiet 1 turned up betas the world; Ji;m sterol the First West 9m lias en- , I Vlil.

Esuping the absurd formalities of military law, our hero afterward fig ured as Major ot the regiment, and, in the alenee of his superior officers, signed himself, luminously, a-tin Lieutenant-Colonel. As acting Lieutenant-Colonel, however, heeoiitinaed hi- y-tem of peeuliar annttaB, BUM to robbing a church. But the church was of the Methodist Church South, long betas given over to the devil, and, then-fore, a proper subject for a forcitl loan. The war being ended, an .l the great State under proeesa ol reconstruction, sanctioned, guided and controlled iy the pious Bro wnlow. Old Jerasdem had himself return -d to the Leffisbv ture by hi- own gallant regiment, and appeared iu that august body, a Smith, of Hardeman. AS A l.EGISI.ATOIl. He lKnied up larger as a law-maker than he had as a military law breaker. The bills he introduced were numerous, and. looking to the public good generally, kept Old Jerusalem's interests in view all the time. t ne biil, passed to a law, creabtl an im mouse freight company for the cityot Memphis. Memphis had suf taed during the war to such an ex tent that -he was aetually without a freight e impatiy. Smith, of Hartle mau, made one. It was iunneuse. It was so gr-at that no 'other com pa ny was thought to be necessary and this charter said so. It ruled nut all others. An old woman could not fend home a basket ol potatoes by any other means than the great Memphis Freight Company. For this lar-seeing and patriotic ef fort Old Jerusalem received the re compense ot great reward in the shape of twenty-five thousand dollars worth of stock. Unfortunately for the old festive cuss, the courts intervened, and knocked the great company eial wirie. The stock collapsed, and the venerable Smith considered himself an ill -list 'I man. His next move was to augment tin fare on the Memphis Street Bail road from live to ten cents. For this he received the pitiful sum of five thou nd dollars He then procured the s. Taire of a law incorporating a com pas. -the old Memphis Freight Company- ;nd that gave it possession of pauy, m. -8 and bridges thereon lead all the roa tphls, with the right to ing into ifBk -aid company so arlah repait them it s rate fon-ing it to ed; and at any ntads made and charge toll.

He was so useful to the sinful and stupid city of Memphis as the mem ber from frank-man, that at the next j election he was returned as the JSena- : tor from that rebellious place. Mem- j phis was unhappy, of course. But I hold that Old Jerusalem is sent as a punishment to the rebellious and stiff-necked sinners. From the State Besate of TenneaaM to the Congress of the United (States is but one step for such a Smith. And here he is, with his seat assailed contested, as it is called by another man who claims to be more duly elected than Old Je rusalem. AS A CLAIMANT. The biography of this remarkable man would lie incomplete without reference to his wonderful talent as a claimant. Toward the close of the war he ap pears! before General Hurlbut, then In command at Memphis, with a claim of fsWitO for damages done liim by the reikis. The General's military bowels of compassion were so moved tint lie issued an order assessing the loss upon the rebels of Hardeman, each mother's son of them to pay in proportion to his worldly goods. These wicked rebels were assessed and exmotkm had; for that the nur sery of Grand Junction had been de spoiled. linnos were seized and sold, hou-ehoid furuiiure put up, and even pot- tad paas levied upon, that Old jeru.-aiem might be rebuilt. Not content, however, with this raid, Smith, of Hardeman, while in the rishtUire, came back with 1 1 i ! claims, that ha.I now grown to eight llliill-ituu tltJllHis-. lilt inie us (ie :su moved Qeh. Qaotgc H. Thomas, that he, al-o, i-suedan order ot assessment. But, tortunateiy lor the wicked reueis of Hardeman, the order passed through Gen. Washburue's hands, then in eommaiidat Memphis, and he stopped it in tranifit, calling Gen. Thomas' attention tothe fact that said claim, in its infancy, had been satis- lied Then the Venerable Jerusalem turn- ed his attention toConsnv.ss. He sent thither his promising claim, that had now grown to the enormous magni tude of twenty-two thousaud dollars It is a precious document. The nur sery and peanut stand of the Grand Junction have grown into a planta tion. The plantation has been rava ged. The items are civen with painful accuiacv, down to two ducks ami mx chickens. The claim was forwarded to the Hon. Mr. Stokes, aud as it seemed to baas drearily on Stokes hands, Ancient Jerusalem procured his st-i-alitd return to Congress, and was s'-arcely sworn in before the Hon. Stttkts Handed him tho papers,saying, " rbpre't your claim; now prosecute ItyewnaifP I learq frotn some member of the Commune ou Kl'vtior.s and from thence I get the details for ttU pleas imf little lii-torical sketch that the seat cmii-.-ti u,-, ni...n.., , alter tne noiways in nacnwi salem will probably pe turned out, io go, once more, into tne uemi nnti or- liallieniai pursuit oi peauuis ai;uf;uiii- drops, raeu nfJT r.n r fCiViv i v I ' Tho Memphis.

The reason that the amount of the proposed Loan is Limited to twelve hundred millions ! I of dollars, is basti on tiie belief of the !
