He says, at the outset, that the Ai'Pkai. interviewer gave a correct Mm "f his views ae the .iiestion, when he -j:d : " His spiritism, in justice to Man, .- are Isiun.l to state, is not what ia i ' iiitnonly denominated spiritism, hut a liri-tian llief in spirits, which he hi l.fc- to lie in accordance with the sm-1 1 .tu res, and also in accordance with th. icws ,,t Wesley and Clarke, the crt.u exponent" of the teachings of the Methods!

In reference to the impudent blasphe- m o Jimmv, Mxs.

He made a mistake in tin : me bv a year he was in Memphis. To be xsked alsmt the most profoundly m - 1 ious subject in the Bible is alisurd in'!:.' extreme." How does this"tally" with the spirit of tJ fifteenth chapter of the Kvangel s ",Liu.

Woodfolk was decided yestenlay by the Supreme Court, Snced, Judge, d'eliverimr tlie opinion, which for its irreat learnini; and comprehensive anal ysisof leading principles, Isith of State ami international law, as relates 10 mat e.r KimitrU' and jr debit it. Ihe plain till'. Burdette .Vshton Lewis, as the ad ministratorof Wm. Webb Wilkins, de ceased, brought this action in the ir cuit Court, of Davidsou county, against the defendant upon three several prom issory notes, executed by the defendant, January in, 1SH0, and due ami payable from date, for large sums. The notes were executed in Louisi ana, for and in consideration of certain hunts, located there, and slaves lieloug- iti.' thereto. U the tsmrt la-low the verdict anil judutneiii were againsl the defendanl, annealed in error to the Supreme Court, which allirmeii the judgment of the lower court, but dismissed the attach ment. Among the many point" of in terest decided were that inasmuch as tin- plaintiff "is the holder of the uotes and has deraigued his right to hold Harm through the power of attorney, and iudicial record from Louisiana; and this iieing so. he lias aright to sue under our statute in the naoae or description useii in :he insliument.'' Code of Ten-nes-oe, section -Tss. This the court re plied in auswer to t lie averment of de fendant that "this action cannot be maintained by the plaintiff as the legal representative of the succession ot Wil liam Webb Wilkins; that he is in fact mmt the payee of the notes under the law- of Louisiana." ''The declar ation." says the Supreme Court, ''is in the name of Burdette Aahtou Lewis, administrator, with the will an nexe,! of Wm. Webb Wilkins, and re cites the execution of the notes that they were payable to the legal represen tatives of the succession ot Wm. Webb Wilkins, and their delivery to the plain- till', whereby the defendant then and there lieeanie liable to pay to the plain tttt the said sums of the money in the note- -jiecified according to the tenor and ellect thereof. The declaration is sufficient on its face to charge the defendant. Without .oii"idering the ipjestion upon the effec-. our statutes as to the nronrietv of a a worn plea to rai-e thi- issue, we hold that the plaintiff is iu law and iu fact the legal represeu taliveof the succession of Wm. Webb Wilkins." Another uuestio,. claiming the atten tion of the court was that of slavery, a part of the money due and promised by said notes being for certain slaves -old prior to the war. Th.- defense relied on wa.' "that so far as the slave property was concerned, the consideration of these notes has totally failed, by reason of the abolition of sla very. ' A clause of the Constitution of Louisiana and certain judicial rulings of that snate were relied unou to ileteal tne suit to the extent of the value of these Slav. -, the effect of which is that con tracts of this nature caunot Is? enforced in the courts of Louisiana. The court did not sustain this defeuse, whieh might Ire summarily disposed "upon the giotind that prior to this change in the fundamental law of Louisiana, the de feudant had voluntarily changed the legal status ot the property by its re moval to another State,'' mwd thai by this con version of the proerty his own legal obligations in regard to it were also changed.

This we caunot do. It is not necessary to enter into any elaixirate discussion of the question whether such a principle iu the organic las : a State is or is not an infraction of the fundamental law. The question in analogous cases has been Irefore the highesi tribunals and it has been so held, and us we think, upon the soundest principles," ' ' White vs. Hart 13 Wal . Mnj I Adolph aud Ellis 989, "It h:is laseii "ought,'' says the court, after quoting the above and many other decisions, and referring to the question of loss occasioned by the rin major "to vary in it" application to contracts for slaves on account of the alleged immo rality of slavery that there wa" an in herent vice in the very nature of slave property, causing the title to a slave merely to be tolerated, but without any obligation on the iiart of the gov ernment to proteut it. It is sufficient to say iu reference lo this proposition, in th'e words of an ancient maxim of the common law, noi itas non tuni vtiitatr rodent iiiam mtritxib i:rln.rltaXXaX it is iu direct antagonism to the judi cious rulings of this country from the foundation of the government, aud that it is an emanation from the i'm rxn Uior of the political areua rather than a legit imate deduction from auy recognized principle of law. With the morality of slavery we have nothing to do, but sim ply to'auuounce the laws of property as we tiud them referable to contracts of this character. We are of the opinion that neither under the comity of States, uor upou auy other principle, can the courts of this State tolerate a defeuse to this action based upon a provision of the constitution of Louisiana which is re pugnant to the organic law of the laud. "A questiou is made upou the validity of the ancillary attachment which was issued and levied iu this case in aid of the action already begun by the service of ordinary summons. The petitioner for attachment which with the jural at tached is iu legal effect the affidavit re quired by law, seems in mMMM to conform iu every particular to the re quirements of the rule repeatedly an nounced by the com 1, and the ground of exception arc that these are not for mally repeated In the writ, and that no publication is -hown to have Ikjcu made. The pstitionei alleges the insti tution of the sun in the courtfrom w Itieh the attachment al sued out, the nature of Ihe debt sued on, that the same is due aud unpaid, that the defendant has fraudulently disposed of his nronerty and is about to do ao, and prays for an at tachment aUL-illary to the suit' 'com menced M aforesaid.' The writ is in the form prescribed iu the Code, with tiie. words -ancillary to a suit at law heretolore conimeuceil ' siiK-rndded. The leadiug pna-ess in this case is the original summons. It was issued upon the defendant aud brought him into . court, where he appeared and made de- feuse t the original action. I'uder this tote of facL", the absence of proof of: publication cannot Ire held fatal to the proceeding, the ancillary attachment, j unlike tiie original attachmeut, being subsidary proceaa merely, and it" only I office being to hold the property attach- j ed for the satisfaction of the judgment j to be recovered in the original action. It 1 docs not bring the party into court. 1 Heisg. Jti. Bcforejthe act of 184-1, cb. i Jfl, the ancillary attachment was known to our law, aud no form urescrilied for the writ by that The act of 174, ch. 1, article had prescribed a form lor the writ in case- of origiual attachment, and this form has been brought into the code as the ouly form prescribed for the writ in .-uses other than judicial attachments, which latter cases ate founded upon the etum of the Sheriff upon an original summons. It is insisted that this form was prescribed for Ihe origiual ami an cillary writ alike. This form is given anil pi escribed iu the chapter of the cod.- hich authorizes and regulates the n-in e.ly by attachuiciii generally, hliti chapter embraces the only authority lor the ancillary writ, and it is followisl by a powtivc provision that " no objection will lie to Die form of the attachment if the essential matters in said prece dent Ih- set forth in such attach ment Code) M75. The form of the writ in this case conforms to that prece dent except in the superadded words that it is 'ancillary to a suit al law heretofore commenced.' And this was the stale of the statutory law at the time of the inceptiou of these proceed ings. But it is insisted that the attach ment is a nullity, because the writ dis-s not repeat the words of the affidavit as required by certain rulings -of this in divers reported and unreported cases ad judicated lioth prior autl subsequent to the adoption or the code, and we are called upon lo review these decisions and to declare the effect of the legisla tion referred to upon this question. It is certainly true that the Legislature has a right to prescribe the rules aud prece dents of practice iu such cases, aud if this lie done, the courts cannot depart from them except for some extraordi nary reason involving the repugnance of such ratal and precedent to the organic law. The writ of attachment is an extraor dinary remedy given to the creditor against his fraudulent or non-resident debtor, and while the laws are to be lib erally construed in favor of the remedy, yet the cot sequeuces are of such a seri ous and harassing character to the de fendant himself in the seizure and impounding of his property that every express requirement of the law must lie ulisi rved. Thus an "oath in w riting is required, which with the lamd is filed in court as a part of the record, that the defendant may Is- advised of the nature and cause ol the proceeding. The nature aud amount of the tlebt or demand must he sotted, and that it is a just claim, or equivalent words which impart that fact, at i aba that some one of the statutory causes which authorizes the writ. The ourt itself is the mere mandate of ihe law to the officer and simply requires of him to perform an offleiai duty. It would seem b) be unnecessary in tlie absence of any rule upon the -ubject that the writ should contain anything more than the direction to the oliieer m the form pre airloed In the enaVkj except iu the ancil lary writ, such words as may identify its eo inection with the suit. The prop erty i- to lie impounded for the satisfac tion Ol the particular tlebt sued for, and the connection of the ancillary writ with the original action should be identilied, s 1 that after judgment the court may advisedly proceed to appropriate the property in satisfaction of the debt for which it was attached. The words 'au iliary to a suit-at-Iaw heretofore com menced' would seem sufficient for this purpose, if there be hut one suit between the paraea in the court, for the ancillary writ is made returnable to the court w! eic tlie suit is pending aud where th.- record is ready to advise the defend ant as to all the requisites of the affida vit M required by law. But suppose there he two or more ac tions brought by the same plaintiff agaiust the same defendant, in the same tribunal and the plaintiff -ui " out the ancillary attachment iu aid of each suit, the levy in each is upon different property, autl there was noth ihg to identify the connection of the wrii- with the suits respectively, except tin- general words, "ancillary to a suit at law heretofore commenced upon." Might not serious embarrassments fol low in l lie appropriation of the property, BapactaOy in the court of a sale and as :ient of either of the judgments'.' Tin- rulings of this court upon this sub- jec' which in ancillary attachments re quire that botli tue affidavit ami tne writ should state certain facts, would seem therefore to be founded iu sound wisdom and forecaste, aud are necessary to arive delicacy and certainty to this remedy. I u the language of the court, 'both the writ ami the affidavit must re fer to and describe aud identify the suit in aid of which the writ issues, so as to show unmistakeably iijsjm their face that they form an adjunct ol that particular proceedings," "i Cold otio.itis conceded at the bar, that at the time the rule had its original 111 an alleged UH-tum, it was a good one, and that there was no statute to the contrary; 11 Hump., 546. But it is insisted that the Code has changed the 1 iile by prescribing I general prece de)!' for the writ. If the Legislature ban "learly manifested an intention that the form prescrilied by the act of 17H-I lor tlie original attachment, which is 1 ii ought into the Code, should also be the form for the ancillary writ, we could but yield to such clearly manifested in tention, whatever amount of confusion, 1111. i taiiily and embarrassment might follow in practice. But in view of the absoiute necessity for identifying the wri and affidavit in such cases with the original suit, we are of the opinion that the form giveu in the Cisle was only iu tottded, as it was in the old law, for cases ofoi. nal attachment, and that in the ab-eni of any prescribed form for the ancillary -nit, it was left to the courts to . iii'ii' such rules of practice as would Ire consonant with the spirit of the laws, and would make the remedy efficacious and certain. We are satisfied with the-e iiiies, and think they are found ed iu gissi seuse and reason. And even iftln-y were not, they have been sane ttened as rules ol practice by this court in many reported aud unreported cases for near a quarter of a century; they have controlled the right of property ami have been adhered to without a shadow of turning; they have gone in to our new revisals for the guidance of the humblest of our judicial tribunals, and nave come to be accepted as the settled law. Under such circumstances we would hesitate long to disturb them, even if they were utterly indefensible upon principle or reason. "We have had occasion," say this court in au early is.-, "to express our seuse of the import ance of adhering with some importuni ty 10 decisions when ouce made, deem ing fluctuation of judicial opinion an evil of such magnitude a not to find its equiioise of good in auy fancied or real approximation to greater correct ness." 10 Yerg. iWS. 1 The attachment iu this case is null and void, and will be discharged. In all other respects the judgment will be affrmed." The above judgmeut is for the sum of eighty-four thousand seven hundred and thirty-one dollars. LAW kFi'OKLS.

In what we have to say of leading or conspicuous characters across the river it is none of our business to tell aught that is evil, and only that which, true, is also kindly and inoffensive. People here aud iu Arkansas coustautly read of men at the State Capital of whose his tory they know nothing, and therefore the interest that attaches to simple re citals like that which tells of h. N Hill, who was tan in Manama, July 4, 1829. His father, Ezra Hill, removed to Mata moras, Mexico, the same year, where he remained till 1834, when he removed to Texas, settliug'nearfioliad. In the Texas revolution Mr. Hill, senior, wa- a soldier in the army of Houston. E. X. Hill, then six years old, was with his mother and two older sisters iu the Mission as refugees when it was captured by General I'rrea, of Santa Anna's army, aud Captain King's com puny, of Fan nin's command, were murdered. Mrs. Hill, her two daughters and sous were carried to Matamoras, aud came thence to New i irleans. where Mr. Hill rejoined them after the battle of San Jacinto. In New Orleans, E. N.Hill lirst went to school. His father removed to Harrison burgh, on the Ouachita river, ami iu l.vil, to Kcore Entire, now Camden, in Ouachita county, in Arkansas. Nat, a. he is called, receiviii a gotsi education, and at tiie early age of eighteen, re ceived a certificate from one of the judges ot the Supreme Court his tutor; that he was competent to prac tice law. In 1849, he went overland from Fort Smith through New Mexico aud Halt Lake to California, from which State he returned to Arkansas in 1851. Au anient Whig, he early entered politics.not as an oltice seeker, but as a worker. He opposed secession, but entered the Southern army, and was a soldier till the done of the war. In ISlis, Colonel Hill, wilii Judge C. Thrower, established in Camden a news paper, called the D ntui rnt . In 1869, in- bananne the proprietor anil editor, and made the D uioci iit a determined oppo nent of Kadicalism. Heopposed recuu stiueiion. bath in the uewspaper and on the -tump. In ls72, when the Demo cratic party was adopting the passive policy, Colonel Hill oppo-ed it. but nprnmng the winter ami spring in Washington City, he advocated the nominalism of Judge David Davis. When Mr. Greeley was nominated, he denounced the act, and refused to sup port him . voting for Grant. In Arkan sas the Democrats nominated a leading Radical, and Colonel Hill refused to sup port him, and induced a large numlrer of Democrats to remain neutral. He now lives in Little R:k, and is au act ive manager of all political matters at the capital of Arkansas. He has fierce enemies and many friends; aud whatever his private faults, of which we ku-.w nothing, it is proper to say that he enrries about a vigorous bra'u le- neath a skull quite as naked as that of Diogenes, which an eagle mistook for a stone, and letting fall a terrapin that the shell m:ght lie broken, cracKed instead the half-cracked philosopher's cranium : an i torn Hill may die at last. Hill is a ready, facile writer, and contributes copiously to the i-olums of Arkansas newspapers of all parties anti creeds. He is tin- great Bohemiau of western wilds. Moreover, he is the confessed exponent of the temperance reform movement; and, through associations he has organi.ed everywhere, he wields unquestioued influence throughout the Stale. He is generous, kindly, of ami able temper, an iuterestiug colloquist, a ready.fluent debater, and would be desig nated by a stranger as a marked char acter in any assemblage. He is loqua cious, and his room at the Little Rock caravanserai the Metropolitan is ever crowded with the leading politicians now shaping the destinies of the State PHII-OSOl'HY OF ARKANSAS SOBRIETY. Courts and Attorneys-General in Lit tle R ick and other places in Arkansas, concur iu asserting the fixed opinion that, that for three years past there has been a great improvement in thequality of whisky supplied by Memphis to the food people of that State. Murders and assassinations are almost wholly un tatown; aud though whisky, for two weeks in Little Rock, when the Senato rial contest was pending, was more abuu daiii thau water, there was never a ligf' oi quarrel to disturb the equanim ity o. ihe blessed progressive city. The Legislature, it is thought, will return a vote of thanks recog nixlng the recent beuelicence of whi-ky manufacturers everywhere. Each candidate for the Semite had apartments for the convocation of his friends. Thither they went when thirsty, by day ot night, and never a dime, stive by candidates, vas oxtiended for whisky through two weeks in Little Rod;. There was no drunkenness. Whisky was too abundant and cost too littie. Why should a man drink to excess wheu drinking costs nothing'.' Men know it is wrong to wa-te mouey, and doubly wrong to expend it in whis ky; aud it is sheer obstinacy aud love of wrong and of the violation of all laws, human and divine, that makes men drink. Cheapness of alcoholic beverages begets the wonderful sobriety of Paris ians, and wheu w hisky was more abun dant aud cheaper than water in Little Rock, the State of Arkansas had a steadier head than ever Irefore. DORSE Y aJKn BOWES. Alter Dorsey 's election inuny mem bers of the Legislature and citi.eus of all classes went to Dorsey -'s rooms at the Metropolitan Hotel. Speeches were made by Ex-Governor Hadley who talks well, often eloqueutly, by Gover nor Baxter, Alex McDonald and several other gentleman. All expressed grati fication because of the triumph of the Senator elect, Mr. Dorsey. Judge Bowen who had urged his own claims to the Senatorial chair vehemently and with persistent earnestness, never at any time spoke unkindly of the kindly Mr. Dorsey. But while Judge Boweu gave utterance in m.ist felicitio is terms to his gratification ws-ause the choice of the Legislature had fallen on so worthy a gentleman he went awav and was soon surrounded bv a merry crowd of his own supporters. !fe was then heard to whisper, "Well, troys, I'm beaten here, aud to rcorro v rr to Toreka when- a Seiiatona: struggle comes up next week. I'll represent Kansas in the I'nited States Senate.'' This was the only malicious utterance ever matle by Itoweu, involving, as it does, a criti cism upon the briefness , . Dorsey's so journ in Arkansas, it is in Judge Bowen to say that his diatribe was without tin kindness, and only deigned to excite that merrimeut in which he shared with keenest pleasure. t'HKAP aVUPaUN, One hundred iozen LINEN NAPKINS to be closed out at sd per dozen, formerly si 50.

A light rain s,- in soon alter mid night Tuesday, and lasted nearly all day ye-w-r.::y, with an occasional "let up" for a few moments during the day, but continued until late at night. At sev eral points north considerable snow fell, and at many points it was raining in fact i he weather everywhere was rather soft, and the proiiabihties are that some of the Northern streams will pour out a aVgaf voiiime of water iu the course of awpfs, should the present weather con tinue.

" Buz'' sent to the Cincinnati Vommeri-lui a brief war re cord of veteran Captain Frank P. Gra cey. and we now republish the same from the columns of the Commercial, as there are many friends of Captain Gra eey living in this vicinity, and because his new acquaintances would doubtless like to hear something of the history of the gentlemen complimented by the naming of a new Iroat: "Captain F. P. Graeey, of Clarksville, was born years ago, seveutv-flve or thirty, more or less, in EddvvLlie, Kentucky, where he is familiarly called 'Dock'- -married there his present accomplished wife, then the belie of that village, and has recently named I 'aptaiu Kymau's new boat after his native towu. He began his nauti cal career iu 1S51 as mud-clerk ou the old America, under W. A. Gleaves, the present Treasurer of the Nashville and Chattanooga railroad. Ante belltim, he was tlie very first clerk on the Luella, Embassy, John Simpson, J. G. Cliue, St. Francis No. 2, Iugomar and Joseuhine Savage. Since the war. he has been captaiu of only oue boat, the Alice, a disreputable eight by teu i hind-wheel institution; and is now run- j ning at Clarksville two wharfboats j "both daily." Not having been thar j himself, "Buz" is, perhaps, not well j posted about the Captain's military ex-; ploi's, but knows very well that he played soldier for three years as Lieuteu- j ant and ,captain of Cobb's famous Ken- ; tucky battery. At Johnaonville he was ordered by Geueral Forrest to go into I tbo steamboat business, and he went you bet. His first prize was the Mazep- j pa aud her barge, both heavily laden with supplies for the Federal army. A j shell from Morton's battery having dis- j abled this craft, she landed on the oppo- site side of the Tennessee river, and her crew, with the exeeDtion of three men. i : abandoned her and took to the woota! ! The river was very high, and all small j water crafts had been destroyed by the enemy ; but Captaiu Gracey could not resist the temptation to "go lxting ! again, so he rolled a log into the : river, and leaped into the angry i flood. He gallantly breasted the waters ! of the swollen stream, and reached Ih. : shore just below the steamer. Alone he i approached the boat ami boldly de- ' minded her surrender. This waa done. ; With the assistance of his thr.-e pri-son-I ers he then stretched a rope across the river, and his company pulled over the valuable prize. On the same day Gen eral Forrest captured the J. W. Cheeee mau, Venus, aud the tin-clad gunboat SS I ' inline . This vessel was made a Confederate cruiaer, and turned over to the command of Captain Grac-ey.

Tult, Ben -south and Kcho. Clarksville may indeed well be proud of Captain Frank W. Gracey, for he is a good boatman, a gallant -ol-dier, a line business mail, aud always an accomplished gentleman. I.o!g may he wave." The Cairo and Columbus tiaii-fer-larat Illinois, which recently ran aground at the head of Island No. was left nearly dry by the water falliug.

This proposi tion pa-wed by the remarkable vote of 1 W to .;0, which indicates a favorable feeling in the House towani these schemes.
