The SoutluTii Railroad Association is composed of many gentlemen of . ) rieuce, full of the conviction thai ihe railroml system of Uie Missis -i.ii i Valley will in the near future be h means of as reat wealth an that of' .New York and Pennsylvania. They itre, therefore, desirous of securing it, mul to thai end lve invested largely ' in the Mississippi Central and other j roads. They desire the Jackson road as necessary to complete Uieir through rt,;ite hroaa theohio into New Orleans; they have therefore sought to pur cuaae th controlling stock in that BMi ownexi by of New Orleans.

At the Mc Farland trial to-day the corridors of the court-hou- were besieged at an early hour by a motley crowd, euri and anxious to obtain a good place. Near the doors, however, was -.v.tid tne prisoner. Shortly after ten o'clock he was left totally unguarded and alone. About 10:30 a.m. a lady iln -scd in black, with some preten atous to beautv, went and sat beside McKarland and engaged him in con versation until the opening of court. She is supjiosed to Is- his cousin, who testitied yesterday. She was heavily veiled. Little Percy appeared soon after, kissed his father and shook hands with the lady. Nicholas M. Oreen swum: In an swer to Mr. Gerry, he stated that in j the year lfG7 he was retained in Bos ton, in the hala. corius case lieiweeil Daviil Mclarland and Abby Sage; sometime after, Richardson came into his office (evidence as to interview ex cluded); saw Richardson subsequent ly; (here eusucd another oueslion as j to admissibility of evidence, showing ' movements of Richardson andeudeav i nrs to irt't oosststsinn of McFarland's ; children, in which Graham didn't i .i to make caiital and endeav- ; ori i0 ,ow that had the prisoner ;jt;cureU po--ssiou of his boys, Mrs. Mcjrarland, rather than lose them, WOuld have returned to lier husband, i Richardson would bavje stopjiett j in the pursuit).

Prisoner statist that he got the letters out of his wile's trunk ; was quite excited when talk ing about them.

There appeared, as heretofore, to be great contrariety ot opinion about the measure which in- oicaicu iia Luouioeaiiou iK-j.jie it is reported to the House for stock job bins or other purpose. Telegrams are continually sent that this bill is going through substantially as it came from the Senate; but these will be found to be quite untrue, when the emasculated bill comes into the House. Secretary Bout well, It Is expected, will Is- heard this week in reply to the bank delegation : after which the Committee will vote on the bill. It is stated by prominent Radical Senators and members that this party ireuerallv iurreed to strike out Bing ham's amendment to the Georgia bill.

Mr. Beck, member of Congress from Kentucky, left with the Committee on Reconstruction to-day a paper signed by the grand jury and Judges of th county court of Rutherford county, stating that the shite of attairs iu Tennessee had been greatly exagger atsl; that good order was pre served in all sections of the State, and that Congressional interference Ls not needed to protect life or property. The Committee on Elections to-day decided to refuse the request to send a cciunijttou to Alabama to take tes timony in the i.onteted election case of Hinds vs. Sherwood, on the ground that it would set a rTgerous prece dent, and t'st grea vtxpense would naturally be incurred in that and in like election contests.

A report got into circulation to the effect that Mr. Justice Bradly, of the United States Supreme Court, had deter mined not to sit In any case involving the constitutionality of the legal ten der act, for the reason that, as an ad vocate, he had been interested hi the question before his elevation to the Lench. your correspondent has taken pains to ascertain the truth of the matter, and finds that there is no foundation whatever for the story. I have the authority of the eminent Justice himself for this statement. Judge Bradley has not said to any one that he would feel constrained not to ait in legal tender cases, nor does he intend to pursue such a course. He thinks that whether he was interested or not aa an advocate in cases involv ing the constitutionalltv of the law hits nothini: to do with his ritrhts and duties as a judge, and especially in the I'lines which are now before the court and with which he had no connection, (should any of the specific cases in .intas are untler cousiUeratlon, he uointK. are will lie entirely free to participate. Otherwise, as he says himself, every judge, who at one time happened to be a lawyer of extended practice, would be disqualified as a judge, for nearly every question of law comes up some time or other for adjudication. The importance of the rumor was that, supposing it true, it would have the effect in all probability of leaving the old decision in force. The last de cision was adopted by a vote of four to three, and since then Bradley and Strong having been addtl to the court, and taking it for granted that Strong Is in favor of legal tenders, it would leave the court divided, four to four, Bradley not taking part, in that way the okl decision would stand.
