In one doc ument he gave some particulars of his misfortunes, the substance of wbicl is elated above.

He then names his brother and uncle aforesaid as his two heartless relations, aud requests that the i ope with which he hangs him self may l cut in two and a piece sent to each relation. He also left a letter of thanks to X VVuwenboch, Esq., the Hwiss Consul iu New Orleans, who had aided him witli mean, and made fruit less efforts to get him employment. He had sealed up his trunk, com , ing nothing hut clothing, and ordered it to tie sold to pay his hoard. He recom mends that the hill fur his funeral ex penses he divided, aud sent to his broth er and uui le along with the rope, and thinks they will pay to obviate scandal And so John Beer squared up his tem poral affairs, took a last revenge upon his relations, and got even with the world.

The propo sition was strenuously Opposed by Messrs. Kerr, Hink and others, but ulti mately prevailed, despite the strong ar gument on the other side. St A l t: TEACHERS' AHO IATIO.. In the State Teachers' Association Dr. Elliott offered a resolution asking the Legislature to render plain the right to tax by districts for school purposes. A. P. Yaucy said that in order to se cure the establishment of a successful free-school system the prejudices of the people must be removed. He offered the following suggestions : To make it the duty of tax assessors to get the scholastic population and pre sent the same to the County Commissioners; to increase the State poll-tax to one dollar; levy a small prop erty tax ; keep as a separate fuud what is paid by the colored population; have no free schools, but let the public fund be paid to the regular schools iu the shape of tuition; give to each county the right to increase its public fund to whatever amount it sees proper. Mr. Caldwell read a lengthy paper from Joseph Nelson, an old teacher at Brownsville, upon the importance of education and the necessity now exist ing for the establishment of a practical public school system. Ex-Governor Brown presented the following: Jlesotred, That county boards shall have discretion to organize schools iu the districts in Tennessee, of not lees than three mo.iths during the year, according to the amount of taxes levied for school purposes by the county, the term to be extended iu proportion to the funds derived from the State or other sources. Iu support of his resolution Governor Brown said that he was anxious that all class of children least able to help them selves should be reached. He wished to get the matter of schools started on however a small scale in each county in the State. Too many public men iu the State are disposed to shrink from this school question on account of the taxation necessary. If the State was in a healthy condition financially, 1 would favor a grand State system of free schools, but the thought of such a step is not advisable at present. Mr. Richards thought the proper way to reduce our taxes was to get more men to come in and help us to pay them ; and he considered the beet way to ac complish this eud would be to establish free schools, and thus induce immigra tion within our borders. Dr. Elliott said that at last Tennessee is determined to be educated; that in this State the old maxim is reversed, aud that it should be, "Eastward the star of einpiie takes its way." Mr. Coulter said that the Comptroll er's report showed that East Teuuessee was decreasing and not increasing in material resources. Mr. Edmondson presented the follow ing: Jitsotced, That we most respectfully suggest the passage by the Legislature of a common school law providing for a State tax sufficient to meet the educa tional requirements, and giving to the counties the right to add to the amounts provided by the State. Ex-Governor Brown offered the fol lowing resolution: Resolved. That it is expedient that the school fuud of the State, together with its accumulated interest, should be fund ed, along with all the other debts aud liabilities of the State, the interest to be paid semi-annually, a separate account to be kept, and the proceeds annually paid out to lb different counties, ac cording to their scholastic population. Adopted. The Memorial Committee presented the following : ReitUved, That the Memorial Com mittee be instructed to memorialize the legislature iu favor of a system of pub lic free schools, with the following au thorities: A State board of education, a Stale superintendant, a county board of education, a district school com missioner, with the usual powers granted to such authorities, and that the Memorial Committee be instructed to memorialize the Legislature to provide the following means to carry out and maintain the public free schools of the State, to-wlt : The proceeds of the permanent school fund of the State and the lntereet thereon, which shall be fuuded in the Unida of the State at the rate of six per cent, per annum; also to levy a State poll-tax of one dollar on all persons subject to such tax, aud that the com mittee memorialize the Legislature to euact such several laws as shall author ize the Dnorts of Chancery to incorpo rate school districts, aa towns, for the purposes oi taxation for school purposes. Adopted as given above. The election of officers resulted as fol lows: President Judge Samuel Watson. Vice-Presidents Hunter Nicholson, T. T. Eaton, J. A. Richardson, N. W. 11 Connell, W. A.

W. Hobbs, Democrat, Comptroller by a majority of twenty votes over Blackburn, Republi can. Captain Hobbs is a citizen of Waverley, Humphreys county, and has been for several years Clerk of the Coun ty Court of his county. He is a good I business man, and va ill no doubt make j a faithful and efficient officer. Dr. William Morrow, of Knox county, was re-elected treasurer on the urst bal lot, by a vote of 87 to 10. Hla election was a foregone conclusion, as he is uni versally popular, and one of the most efficient officers in the State. The three offices of Comptroller, Treasurer and Secretary of Htate are distributed one to each grand division of the State. After the result of the election of Treasurer was announced, the convention ad journed ine die, the Senators returning to their chamber, when both houses ad journed until to-morrow morning. There is a very strong feeling in the Legislature in favor of a Constitutional Convention, and a bill for that purpose is now in preparation. I learn that a bill will be introduced in a few days to reorganize the courts of Shelby county, but I do not know the particulars of the bill, not having seen it. No doubt an Insurance Departmcut will be created by the Legislature to ex ercise control and surveillance over all insurance companies, life, fire and ma rine, but there are great doubts ex pressed of the success of the application of the fire companies to repeal the law requiring a deposit of twenty thousand dollars by each company, liefore doing business. Laws embracing a general public schools system, and the encouragement of immigration, will bedoubtless passed. Iu connection with immigration a resolution will be introduced to publish the report of Major Joe Barbiere, made to the Legislature as Commissioner to Europe, and it will most probably pass. Memphis has her usual number of visitors here representing various inter ests. The rotunda of the Maxwtl House presents almost as many familiar faces as tne Peabody or Overton.

Tin: i . p. r. k. in sixes. Oliver Ames, former President of the Union Pacific railroad, was sworn. He was asked what it cost to build that por tion of the road iu Oakes Ames's con tract, but was not able to reply. He was examiued at length regarding subscrip tions to the capital stock of the Union Pacific, and also relative to subscriptions authorized to be made by the trustees of the Credit Mobilier to the stock of the I Howard. I nion Pacific. During the examination he said Oakes Ames's contract could not have beeu obtained so low as it was if the completed portion of the road had not beeu included in the contract. Question Did you not, by virtue of a contract with Oakes Ames which in cluded one hundred and thirty-eight miles of road already completed, derive large profit from the Union Pacific Rail road Company, and was not that profit made the very instant the contract was assigned by the trustees? Answer it was. Question Did not the Credit Mobilier, a few mouths after, declare a large divi dend? Answer We did. Question Were not all the assets out of which the Credit Mobilier made divi deuils, obtained from the time of assign m. nt, until the dividends were made? Answer They were. Question Was not a large portion of the dividend derived from an extension of the contract over that part of the road already built aud accepted by the Gov ernment? Answer It probably was. Question Vvhat did the one hundred and thirty-eight milesof completed road, included" in the Oakes Ames contract, cost? Mr. Swauu Did you represent to the Government parties in authority that the portion of road referred to was the finished road, and fully equipped; and did you uot receive your bouds accord ingly, iu conformity with the law? Answer The Commissioners inspect ed every twenty miles of road and re ported its completion to the Govern ment. The road was equipped for run ning purposes but not to the extent of accommodating travel. The Govern meut accepted the road as finished, and the bills were paid. . Question Do you know how much money was spent for engine-houses, en gines, etc., alter the road was accepted? Auswer A gissl many hundred thou sand dollar. Mr. Hoar Did the contract with Oakes Ames bind him to do anything more than to work a certain portion of the road aud to take an additioual sum of money in payment for it? Answer The contract bound Oakes Ames to furnish a certain number of engines and cars, which be did. Mr. Shallabarger Was not all the machinery and rolling-stock, at the rate of seven thousand five hundred dollars a mile, included in Oakes Ames's con tract, already included in the presiding contract? Auswer 1 think the required amount of rolling-stock had not beeu put ou the road at tbe time of coucluding Oakes Ames's contract. The committee adjourned till Mon day. i. f. .m:r i . Secretary Delano has arrived here much improved iu health. The Ways and Means Committee have postponed the subject of refunding the cotton tax until after Brooks's bill has beeu printed. The Senate Committee on Commerce will report a bill providing for the trans fer of St. Mary's Falls canal to the Uuited States, as soou as the tolls shall have reimbursed the State of Michigan for expenditures. The Government will probably enlarge and improve the canal. The House Judiciary Commitfee agreed to tbe principal features of Mr. liutler's bill to distribute the Geneva award. The Committee ou Privileges and Elections met this morning. Senator Morton announced that the ques tions into which tbe committee would inquire were, first, with regard to the electoral vote; second, with regard to legal election; third, as to whether a legal government now exists in Louis iana.

No trains left the city on any of the rail roads to-night, aiid hundreds of busi ness men living in suburban villages, are snow-bound in the city. The street railroads have run a limited number of care all day with four horses to each. Reports" from the South and South west, East and West, show that the storm has been even more severe in those sections than here, aud appears to have extended itself to a comparatively short distance in the North and North west. On the Chicago and Northwestern railroad snow is reported not to be heavy between here and Oshkosh; and, though no trains left here to night ou that railroad, tbe trains running Oetween usnKoeh and fort The Milwaukee and St. Paul railroad reports no snow on the road for one hundred miles west of Milwaukee. Burlington and Keokuk reports it snow ing heavily all day and drifting badly; trains ou all the railroads have been abandoned. Omaha reports very cold and windy, but clear. There is no snow ou the Illinois Central railroad. The storm extends from Chicago to Cai ro. There are ten or twelve inches of suow, and it is drifting badly. On the Michigan Southern railroad trains are reported moving, but the snow is deep and drifting badly. Along the line of the Michigan Central railroad tbe storm extended beyond Jackson, at which point the snow is reported a foot deep ou a level. Throughout central Illinois tbe storm has raged for the past thirty hours and all tbe reads are block aded. No trains have arrived at or left Springfield since this morning on any rood and snow lies fifteen inches deep. Jacksonville, Illinois, is reported iu a similar condition of affairs. A train on the Southeastern railroad is snow bound and completely buried some miles from Jacksonville. At Peoria a storm raged with terrible fury. Trains on all the railroads are abandoned. Sev eral trains on the Toledo, Peoria and Wabash railroad are snow-bound at Fairburg, but fortunately the cold has not beeu at all severe. The thermometer here stood at twenty-one degrees above zero all day. The amount of suffering from the storm is not likely to be great; Rights Question Report of the Committee on Elections Referred.
