A Democratic politician in Congress,
rho i keen observer of events, declared
lately that Grant meant to be President.
and would soon assert himself much
wore in the action of the Government
than he has done of late.
CANDIDATES FOR THE SITBS1IE COl'RT.
There is a new candidate for the vacan
cv in the bench, occasioned by Mr. Stan
toa's desth.in the person of Judge Fisher,
of the District Supreme Court, who ac
quired an unenviable notoriety by his
charge in ihe Sorratt case. Judge Carter
continues to wit it very Ijadly, but is
backed by only foar .Senators, and his
chance, are deemed particularly blue.
. THE TELEGRAPH.
Oen. C. C. Washburn has a rod in pickle
fjgg the great telegraphic monopolists.
When Congress reassemble he proposes
to ask for a committee to investigate the
subject of telegraph business in this coun
try, with power to ?end for persons and
papers. He intend, this time, to sum
mon as witnesses the operators them
selves, who will, he thinks, be able to
furnish information hitherU w ithheld by
the Western I'mou Company.
THE GREAT IMPEACaFR.
When Mr. Cavanaugh. the otherday. in
conversation with Grant, referred to the
statement in the Philadelphia Press that
Gen. I'etts's name would be withdrawn,
the President stated emphatically that he
had never thought of withdrawing GeiL
Potte'g nsme. tfcat the rumors in the pa
wns were not true, ana Jhat Ashley must
go unless the Senate should reject Gen.
Potts, which he deemed hardly po:i I.
This would seem to settle the fate of AsU-
j-VCnSOS OSLT A XILITTA OKJTEEAL.

The Mromele n "w loots upon our victory
on that occasion M a very small affair
and npon Jackson ee a mere " militia
General. It seems to measure military
glory according to the number of men a
General contrives to have slaughtered.
According to this standard Jackson can
not be compared to a Grant.a Sherman, or
even a Sheridan.
AXTI-RECO NSTRrrTT O X ISTS.
Some time ago all the native Virginians
bolding judicial and other appointments
in the State, were removed for inability
to take the ironclad test oath, and their
places were filled by carpetbaggers. It
is said thai a deputation of tbos deposed
judges have arrived in Washington to
protest against the admission of the State
nntil all the judicial offices shall have
been filled with persous who can take the
test oath. In this way ttey expect to
keep their present places.
THE INCOME TAX.
The Commissioner of Internal Revenue
evidently iiinks that Congress will re
enact the incoolt; lax for 17.1. He has is
sued instructions to the assessors, who
are about to assess this tax for lt69, to
t-ubmit such plans and suggestions as may
,me under their ofiici.".l cognizance in as
jb ing this tax, with a view of seeing if
anT c hange in the schedule can be made
of mut .i1 lenett to the taxpayer and
the Gover."unent- J urging from the talk
of members Of tbe House, a movement to
reduce this tax, iff re-enacted at all, to
3 per cent., will c vtainly be carried.
scpuem"E corR-
Thero is no doubt that Hon. William
Strong, of Pennsylvania, will, according
to the present intentions of the President,
be nominated to the Senate as the succes
sor of Associate Justice Grier, .'or which
place the late Mr. Stanton was confirmed.
The nomination may not be transmitted
to the Senate for several weeks, as Mr.
irier will not retire from his position an-
. i
til the first of February. As to juage i
Hoar's nomination, there is no authority
furetaling it will be withdrawn by the
President. The Senate itself is left 10 dis
pose of it.
CBf BP JfSTKL rfIAE ANU THE XVTH
AMENDMENT.
It is stated that Chief Justice Chase has
wt iten letters to such reform members
of the Ohio Legislature as he has influ
ence with, urging upon them the import
ance Of ratifying the XVth Amendment.
The Oktbaf Justice is oxeeedinEly anxious
that Ohio should ratify th6 amendment,
and is said to be using his ersonal influ
ence for this purpose. In conversation
with aeentleman a few days ago he saij
e would be very much disappointed :Cj
xbe Ohio Legisiaturo did not ratify the
ainetiLiinent. He thought, from his
knowledge of the reform member, that
most of them would vote for it.
RADICAL PISSEXMOS.
It aeems appareut that, when Congress
reaawtnbles, there will be a aerious strug
gle between Republicans who wish to
koep alive aectional agitation and to go on
to reconstruct anew Tennessee, Virginia
and other States on the one band, and
those on the other who believe the strife
has been carried far enough aud that the
eou-itry desires peace; and that, unless
ron-truction be promptly finished, the
Hepabi'-can party will be apt to lose
power. The first course will be upheld
by 8itm-"' Th!lver, Hamilton, Ward,
and probably Butler, while the other will
dpabtlees be championed by Trumbull.
Bibam, Stuart, t wart. Ferry, Cm
eronjed other infliu"utiij leaders. The
r. -pfaUlicans are nearly ' much divided
on this question s they art on the sub
ject of the finances and taxatiou.
COSflSCATIOS TESt CASK.
An important case has be -en appealed to
t?e Supreme Court, involving the legal
ity cf certain confiscations mado under
ttie a.'-1 of l&Sl This case arises from the
ale una , r n order of theDistricl Court
in 18CJ, of t.,,e brick residence on Ninth

groiind that a party must, andc." tbe Cou"
stitulion, be convicted of treasou 9
jury before his land ands g. ods can be i.or"
felted. In this case the cUimsnt was not
so tried, and he was afterwards regularly
pardoned by the President. The cause
will be argued by the Hon. Benjamin R.
Curtis and Mr. Caleb Cut.hing, and will
probably come on sometime this winter.
BOBBEB Y IN THE TKEASVKT.
The Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Gazette says that it has been in
timated to htm by one who ought to know,
that there is something in the rumor of a
Isrge deficit in the " bond account" at the
Treasury; or, rather, that it has been dis
coTereVl that the Government bonds have
been duplicated to a fright ful amo ont. A
few ilays a merchant filed an appllca
i ionTor the renewal of certaia bonds sworn
by him to hsva been sunk in the ocean,
ind, of course, utterly destroyed. This loss
occurred some time ago, and, upon examin
ation H was ft"1" that the eoupons had
wn ' reealarly paid. Tha respectability
.of the party applying, added to the cer- j
officials to critically look into their regis
ters, when it was found that almost fabu
lous amounts, by swindling operations,
had been filched from the Treasury. It is
at this moment, I hear, a matter under
consideration by the Government whether
to publish the facia officially or keep the
public in comparative darkness for polit
ical and financial reasons.
CCBA, ACCORDING TO COXSCL PLCMB.
Mr. Plumb, from Cuba, late Consul
General at Havana, arrived here on Fri
day. Although known to be very friendly
with the Spaniards, Mr. Plumb, in con
versation, expresses the belief that unless
Spain succeeds in cru.-hing the insurrec
tion in Cuba during the coming three
months, she will lose her cause in the
Island. Should she attempt to maintain
her military on the Island till next sum
mer, Mr. Plumb expresses the belief that
yellow fever will decimate the ranks and
complete their overthrow. He represents
that there are now abfTut forty thousand
Spanish volunteers on the Island, and
from thirty thousand to thirty-five thou
sand regular troops, and that they are
chiefly employed iu guarding tswns and
plantations.
POLITICAL DISABILITIES.
It is said that under the influence of
Butler and his man Whittemore, the Re
construction Committee are refusing to
take any steps toward preparing a bill to
remove the political disabilities of any
persons in the South. Meantime, there
are over two hundred and fifty thousand
leading citizens excluded from all public
employment Federal, State, county or
municipal under the XlVth Amend
ment : while from all Federal employ-
i ments the whole mass of tLe Southern
i whites of both sexes are excluded by the
I ironclad test oath of 18&2. The object is
! to enable the carpetbaggers to monopo-
lize all the offices as long as possible, so
j that the New Engiami system of tariffs
' and class legislation can be maintained,
i It Is thought that the members of this
eefntniwee vho desired to reconstruct
Tennessee and lmpsje new eoeduions.
but to keep out Virginia, are no' uiu-h
encouraged by the manifestations of pub
lic opinion during the recess.
SUPREME COURT DIMSIOSS.
The Judges ol the Supreme Court are
busy preparing decisions in various im
portant cases, which have been long pend-
' ing before them : and thee decisions may
I be expected at an etirly day. It is bt-
lieved that the Question ot the Missouri
I te?t oath, presented by lieueral Frank P.
I Blair, which was argued a year ago, wiil
now be decided. Xt tb? principles of the
opinion of the court la G&tIv.!'? '
Cummin's cases, delivered by Mr. Justice
Field, be carried out to th.'ir logical result,
the Missouri test oath will be declared to
be unconstitutional. This will restore to
the right of the elective franchise some
eighty thousand persons in Missouri,
eighty thousand in Tenncssfc, twenty-
uve tnouand in West Virginia, and a
large number in other States. Other im
portant eases, in which a decision is ex
pected, are the question of the Lfgal-ten-der
act, and ihe constitutionality of the
cotton tax, argued some time ago by
Messrs. F. Phillip3 and B. R. Curtis for
the claimants.
THE FINANCIAL QCKSTIOy.
Secretary Boutwell was in conference
with the Seuu.e Finance Committee on
Tuesday for nearly an hour, concerning
financial matters. It is understood he
approves of the bill reported by Senator
Sherman, increasing the National Bink
circulation forty-five millions, and reliev
ing the same amount of three per ceut.
certificates, and also the section in the
bill allowing kTattaaai B inks to le estab
lished on a gold basis. The members of
the committee conferred with the Secre
tary ou his proposition for funding the
national debt, and the joint resolution in
troduc d by Senator Williams requiring
the Secretary of the Treasury to redeem
such Cnited States treasury notes as may
be presen led for redemption, at the rate
of one dollar in coin for one dollar and
twenty cents iu treasury notes. At the
next meeting they expect to be ablo ts
settle the fuii'ling question, and also the
proposition of Senator Williams, vrhjch is
understood to meet with favor by the
committee.
MCULIN3, IKE AND THE "STAMTS.''
Mullius, of Tennessee, has turoad up.
Mullins retired gracefully from Congres
sional honors to preside ove the Fourth
Collection District of Tennessee, and he
has written a characteristic lei ter to Mr.

and says they "got" just as much pay
without assisting laic civil authorities as
they would by risking their carcasses
against the desperate men they are sent
after. So they don't amount to much
when wanted for this kind of work.
TENNESSEE TO BK BEvOSSTKrCTEI).
The Washington correspondent of the
New York Herald says that should the
Tennessee Convention pass measures such i

and Representatives elected to tho XLIIJ
Congress, on the ground that the State
has broken faith with the Federal Gov
ernment. An effort will then in made to
reconstruct tbe State after tho manner of
Georgia, remanding her back to inilitary
rule and turning out of tho Legislature
all members who are unable to ijualify
under the XlVth Ameudinent.
The Washington Chronicle Admiuihtra-
tion organ) upon this subjjet ssys: Ihat
Congress will iiud it necessary to inter
pose for the protection of the people hardly
admits of a question. Where the disease i
is so pronounced ths remedy cannot be ;
far off. One alternative receive grave ;
consideration among thoughtful men. It
is the ptsags of s geueral law enforcing
the third section of the XlVth article j
of the Constitution against all per- !
sons disfranchised under that section ex
ercising any official trust ei;herof a State
or national charaeler until they have been
duly relieved by the two houses of Con
gress. This would effectually nullify the
acts of the disfranchised Legislature elect
ed with Senter, and would arrest the sin
ister work of tbe disloyal State Conven
tion which meets to-day, avowedly for
the purpose of destroying the main fea
tures of the Republican State Consti
tution and assailing the rights of the col
ored population. There can be no doubt
as to the alarming condition uf Tennea-
GEORGIA.
The Radicals at their Wits' Ends Demo
crats Taking the Oath.
The Nashville Banner of Wednesday
publishes a dispatch from Atlanta, dated
on tbe llth iust., which says:
The Legislature met to-day, but the
Radicals got frightened, as about all the
Democrats were taking the oath. So
many Republicans have become dissatis
fied and an- with the Democrats, that the
Radicals took a recess until 10 o'clock to

I in the South to prosperous aominsrcial

sable to preserving the faith of Congress
with the State.
Afer further debate, a very animated
perunal colloquy took plaje between
Trumbull auu Surnuer. The former
c-died attention to the Dreseuee. near Mr.
Sumner, of an outsider, advising aud in-i
tlueucing his actions.
Mr. Sumner said it was C. B. Portor, a

Mr. Morrill then amended the btii by

Mr. Eldridge said he did uot consider it

Nashville, January 13. The Fran
chise Committee has not yet submitted Its
report to the Convention, and there are
various conjectures as to what will bo the
character of the report. The majority of
the committee are thought to be favorable
to exclusivo white suffrage. If they so
report, there will be a minority report
from the same committee, which will
most probably lie adopted, it being pretty
definitely settled that a majority of the
Convention are favorable to universal
manhood suffrage.

FINANCE.
The London Speotator upon Bsutwell's
" Idiotic " Proposals.
Tho London Spectator, of a recent dato,
reviewing the financial propositions of
Secretary Boutwell, says: Mr. Bout well's i
report contains some startling proposals,
First, he inveighs ajrainst the svstein of
allowing bauks to pay iuterest on depos
its, which results, as he very ustly says,
in the inoney being distributed by tho
banks, iustead of by individuals, and con
sequently in its flowing to the great city
banks, where inoney is most in demand.
This Mr. Boutwell describes as sn "arti
ficial system," tending to accumulate
money more in the great centres of trade
liiau is natural, aud to denude the coun
try of money. What Mr. Boutwell means
by an 'artificial system" it is hard to
say. Perhaps be calls the tendency of
labor and population to the great cries
artificial, and thinks it denudes the coun
try of labor. He seriously proposes to
pass a law forbidding the banks to give
intere-c on deposits, and another
law limiting the loans of banks on cot
lateral securities to au amount not ex
ceeding ten per cent, of their capital! Mr.
Boutwell has not the remotest concep
tion of what he is talking about or pro
poses to do. He is a child iu political
economy. His object seems to be to check
speculation and compel the public to lend
their niouey to tbe merchants and manu
facturers directly, instoad of distributing
it through banks, which he thinks encour
age speculation. and make their own profit
at the expense of the community. First,
his rather idiotic proiwsal would not an
swer his purpose; and, secondly, bis pur
pose is a ridiculous one. tie niignt just
as well propose to aoonsn wnoiesaie
uou-es, or any oiuer aw or innum iuiu-
Ulemen between the public and tbe pro
ducers. No part of the organization for
the employment of spare capital has hith
erto proved so safe as the azency of the
banks. If you could abolish that inter
mediate agency, the public companies
which would spring up in their places
woald foster an infinitely wilder spirit of
speuulation.

ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH.
Nashville, January 13. Mr. Caldwell
offered the following preamble and reso
lution in the House to-day:
Whereas, The presentent condition
of the State, the opinions of the people
and the character and objoct of our legis
lation have become the subjects of gross
and unworthy misrepresentation by a
hireling press, by resolutions of partisan
assemblages, and more recently and nota
bly, by a memorial, presented "to the Con
gress of the Cni.etl States by certain per
sons recognized as being the representa
tives of the people of Tennessee, in the
National Congress, though accredited to
that by a popular minority, iuaiguiflcant
in numbers, and entering upon a ligh
trust in disregard oi tue wisues sou tn de
fiance of the welt known wiil of a disfran
chised but submissive majoritv-; and, !
Whereas, in tho opinion of this General :
Assembly, these wilful perversions of the !
late history of the State, and Aeso
persistent misrepresentations of her nres- i
eut auitude are calculated, as they are no I
I doubt designed, to mislead the Congress !
i of the United States aud excito distrust I
; and prejudice in the minds of our fellow- j
citizens of other States; and

Resolved, That a joint committee be ap
i pointed by the Speakers of the respective
, Houses, who shall be charged with the
j preparation of an address to the President,
i and a memorial to Congress, in which
shall beset forth the late political history
of the State Government and the present
disposition of the people and their ageuts,
to the eud that their attachment and re
spect tor law and order, and the character
and purposes of their lei-lation may be
vindicated from tho a-persion to which
they have been subjected by those whose
claim to public confidence rests mainly
upon a defeated effort to perpetuate the
political enslavoiaeut of their country
men. Hesolrrtl, That said Committee bo re
quested to report said address and memo
rial at au .early day for the approval of
this General Assembly.
Mr. Ca.dwell supported liis preamble
and resolutions iu a speech of some length '
in which he referred to the peaceful con-
dition of affairs in Tennessee, aud tho i
character of legi-lation repaalyd by the
present Legislature. He said the coin-
munity, without respect to race or color
WM reaping the good fruits of what had
been done, and said he anticipated the
happiest results from the labors of the
Constitutional Convention.
Mr. Flemmiug offered an additional
resolution, as fallows:
Whisd. That It is the sense of this
General Assembly that tho rights of all
persons now entitled to suffrage in this
State, should !o forever guaranteed in the
organic law of the State, that all male cii i
zens not convicted of crime, should be en
titled to tho elective franuhise.
Mr. Agee indorsed the memorial to Con
gress in its chief fnatures, and referred to
the election iu his county for proof.
The whole question, after souie further
discussion, was referred to the Committee
on Federal Relations.
The House then passed, on Its third
reading, the bill fixing the State tax at
G0c., having first adopted an amendment
providing mat the notes of the Lank of
the State of Tennessee, of the old issue,
maybe received in payment of taxes; but
the taxpayer may compromise his taxes
by paying one half of the amount
assessed la gold, silver, legal tender notes,
National Bank notes or Comptroller's
warrants, and a payuiCRt so made of r,ne-
half, shall entitle him to a receipt for the 1
whole.
The provisions for funjinj the iuterest j
of the bonded debt ot Tennessee, and the i
notes of the Bank of Tennessee, were
stricken out.
THE SENSATION OF NEW YORK.
Cook, the Ex-Acter, and Present Clerical
Libertine.
From the Cincinnati Commercial.
Rev. Horace Cook, of the Seventh street
Methodist Church, eloped -on Friday
j with Miss Mattie Johnston, daughter of
i Mr. William Johnston, of 38 Seventh
j street. Ho was last seen on Friday even
! ing, leaving a ferryboat at Jersey City,
! and is thought to have lelt for Kuropo in
I the steamer City of Brussels. 'Telegrams
I have been sent in numerous directions
: by Mr. Johnston, but as ye;, without suc
cess. Air. Jvnuston is a weaitny man,
and will spare no expense to regain his
mi-guiueu cnilu
Mr, Cook rccuved two thousand dollars
a year salary, besides rent aud fuel. He
had been paid up to the 1st of January.
He took his clothing along with him, but
ths young lady was entirely unprovid- d
with baggage. He was regarded as the
most eloquent Methodist minister in this
citv. He has been married eighteen years.
Cook's wife aud son are entireiy 'desti
tute. Cook was formerly an acior. He
was converted during a revival in Bur
ton s Theater, in this city, years ago.
He
was first sppoinieu to tue -vietnoaist
Church of Astoria. From there he went
to Flushing, and Mamaroneck, and final
ly, iu May last, to his late field of labor.
Miss Johnston is a pretty, rosy-cheeked
girl of sixteen, with a ronud, short figure,
and black hair, and she was in the senior
class of the Twelfth Street Cirammar
School, under the tuition if Miss Lydia
F. Wadleigu; and the statements of both
that lady aud her pupils testify to her
good scholarship snd invariably amiable,
modest disposition. Much grief is felt for
her by them alL She became a probation
er in the Seventeenth Street Church soon
after the advent ot Mr. Cook, and was
quite open in her innocent expression of
admiration regarding him. Upon his de
parture for Europe she handed him a note
which coiled tbe blessing of God uion his,
welfare, and the safety of his voyage.'
Duriug his absence ho corresponded'with
her. His letters were seen by the young
lady's family, and were chiefly of a relig
iou cuaracier.
On Mr. Cook's return he was observed
at times to be abstracted in his manner,
and never desirous of prolonging conver
sations. His walks with Miss Johnston
wore noticed, and he was once seen carry
ing her books as she left school. But no
suspicion was excited at the time. She
was a teacher iu the church Sunday
school, and his means of uieetim; her
there, and at class and prayer meetings,
were frequent.
On finally determining to elope, Mr.
Cook privately packed a trunk on Thurs
day last, after sending his wife and son to
a lecture of Milburn, the blind preacher,
and on Friday desired his wife to carry a
message for him. While she was on the
erraud be procured the removal of the
trunk to a point where he probably after
ward called for it. On Friday afternoon
be informed his wife that he was going
..?
-
next day, whilo anxious as to his absence,
she received the following note:
"I sin on my last plank. You will
never see my face again. I hop- Haldwin
will be a better mau than his faiar
' HORACE COOK."
Mrs. Cook had heard that Maa Johnston
was a!.-o missing, nnd at once realized tho
fact of the elopement. Her afflictions
may bo imagined. She told a friend that
for sixteen years she had been a slave to
her husband, and that this eruel blow ut
terly prostrated her. At the same hour
on Saturday morning Mr. Johnston also
reoeived a letter from Cook, r.s follows:
I love Mattie. I will care for her ten
derly, kindly, lovingly, inconsistent as it
may appear with my present cvnduct. I
ask for no mercy, but am ready to pay
with my life for the woman I adoro.
" HOK.VCE COOK."
The absence of the couple was ai tirsi,
kept secret, but Mrs. Cook informed Mr.
H. F. Pease, the Presiding Elder, of tho
facts, on Sunday morning. Mr. Pease
officiated in the pulpit, and the congrega
tion were given to understand that Cook
was troubled with neuralgia. No sur
mises were indulged id, but at the h..
ing meeting u was noticed that Mr. Pease
did not pray for the sick pastor, as mm
customary. Inquiries were made of him
regarding this, and the truth was fuii v re
vealed. Various reports hive Miaou regardir.
the antecedents of Mr. Cook, since his de
parture. He is said to have been seeu
leaving the New York Hotel on Thurs
day, in an uneierical pair of corn-colorci
kids, and witn a cigar in his mouth at an
angle of forty-five degrees. Others uy
that he had beeu a victim to panel tbievi -during
nightly indiscretions; that th.-se
had learned his name by meaus nf .lei ten
in his pockets, and hudprrjietualiy'Lliek
uiaileu io.u.
The telegraph last night brought the
annexed information of the clerical scouu
drel, which proves that he had not k it tho
city since tue announcement of the affair;
