"I wish to bring the shame of my ig

wiio through their heartless and mean
treatment have brought tne to this des

his brother and uncle aforesaid as his

that the i ope with which he hangs him

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

veuuoo oi iue two nouses 01 toe i legis
lature to-day elected W. 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.
There is a general, indeed almost uni
versal, complaint here of the prevailing
influenza, which your correspondent has
named the antbrosootic, a disease of
men, in contradistinction to the epizootic,
a disease of animals, or horses. Ax
THROSGOTID is not harder to pronounce
than epizootic, looks as well In print,
and is a new word and cannot be ren

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.

ment of the Agreement
Entered Into.
Washington, Jauuary 23. There
was a large conference at the Treasury
Department this afternoon between the
Secretary and the representatives of
prominent banking firms, who bive
made proposals to fund tbe new loan.
After a lengthy discussion and a thor

tioned an agreement was made, of which
the following is an authentic statement :
The parlies to tbe two proposals which
have been pending before tbe Secretary
