SPECIAL TO THE APPE-VI..
Nashville, January 24.
There was no quorum in the Senate
to-day.
In the House, the Judiciary Com
mittee submitted a report on Senate
bill to prevent slauderou.s publications
in newspapers, and recommended its
rejection.
Resolutions of respect to the mem
ory of Georgv D. Preutice, reported by
a special committee, were adopted.
A resolution instructing Teunessee
Congressmen to vote for no further ap
propriations towards making Wash
ington the jiermanent capital was de
ferred. The bill offered by Mr. Jones, In
corporating the Confederate Itelief
! and Historical Association of Mem
phis, and Continental Transportation
Company, passed on flrst reading.
House bill, providing lor the sale of
delinquent railroads, was made the
special order for Thursday.
House bill, directing Collectors to
take Hank of Tennessee notes in pay
ment of taxes, was taken tip on the
Senate amendments. One, which pro
vides that such notes shall pay taxes
hereafter as well as heretofore due,
was being discussed at the time of ad
journment.
Thetiiw-of the Convention to-uay
was entirely occupied in the discussion
of the franchise, subject to the propo
sition embraced in the minority report
of the Committee oa Suffrage, to sub
mit ihe'ouestion separately to a vote
of tho people. H was supported in
arguments made by Foutres, of Har
deman, Jones, of Lincoln, and 11
From a number of criticisms of the
u-reat French-English actors debut ut-
o
on the American stage, wo select the
following from tho
Wilke's Spirit of th
haps the most discriminating and re
liable:
Marked as are the excel
lencies of his style, they do not entitle
him to the rank of the most highly
cultivated and polished artist. The
most enapliatic beauties which his ac
ting displays, are due rather to physi
cal poetrv, if we may be allowed to
characterize a splendid muscularity
and a certain vehemence of action by
that term, than to intellectual insight.
What has been called "pictureaque
ness" in Mr. Fechter is the wonderful
grace of gesture and sigaHficanco and
i-cauty of motion, nothing more, and,

ing as they do his impetuous roles
with that glamour which always has,
always will, accompany intense phys
ical action in which power and grace
are blended, their effect is transitory
and to a highly intelligent audience
unsatisfactory, if left to themselves.
We need only look at the roles selec
ted by this actor to understand his pe
culiar capabilities. "lluy Bias,"
'The Lady of Lyons," and "The
Duke's Motto," to go no farther.have
this one element of physical action in
common. When we say they are
rnmantic we mean that thev
deal with certaiu manly qualities
which can be bct expressed by ac
tion. In each of the plays Mr. ecn-
ter tyrannizes in a fine way over the i
susceptibilities. He conquers the eye j
at once, and then leads captive the !
other senses in less certain security, j
