George P. Kowell & Co., of New
York, are, without any doubt, the lead
ing advertising agents of the United
States, an J, therefore, of the world.
They have, by the free, liberal and yet
'well-directed use of money, built them
selves np In the esteem of the leading
publishers and advertisers of the conti
nent, and by an unusual energy have
Bucceeded In perfecting in every detail a
business that better than anything else
tells of the growth and importance of
the newspaper business. We yesterday
received a copy of their American JVews
papcr Director, containing accurate
lists of all the newspapers published in
the United States and Territories and
the dominion of Canada and British
colonies of North America, comprising
In all the names of seven thousand
seven hundred and eighty-four, an in
crease of four hundred and ninety-three
over 1873, eight hundred and sixty-two
over 1872, and of one thousand two hun
dred and seventy-six over that of 1S71.
Of this Increase Tennessee claims nine,
giving us a total of one hun
dred and forty-one newspapers
and periodicals. This book, elegantly
bound and printed in the best style of
the art (indeed a model of typography),
is In all essentials a vade mecum for ad
vertisers, affording them at a glance the
complete status of every publication in
the Union, Canada and the British
provinces, including standing and circu
lation. It should therefore find a place
In every merchant and banker's oilice,
as in every newspaper oflice, no matter
when or where published. It embraces
all publications of every language the
German, French, Scandinavian, Span
ish, Hollandish, Italian, Welsh, Bohe
mian, Portuguese, Polish, Cherokee and
English. We have a copy of this mag
nificent work in our counting-room for
the benefit of advertisers and the public
jrenerally, an Inspection of which we
invite as the beet proof we can offer of
the benefits of advertising. As we have
eaid, it is worthy in every sense of the
profession, and we hope It will return to
tho publishers their outlay a thousand

sent A papar might be sue! in theDls
tiict of Columbia simply by serving a

such agent anywhere in the United
State. Agreed to.
Senator Wadleigh saidf&ls bill ap
plied to the District of Opibla, and he
thought that very objectionable, as every
one knew how the people of the district
were Influenced by the party in power,
and how could the press of the United
States criticize the action of the party
having control of the government if it
be tried by a jury in a district which
must be largely iuttuenced by tie govern
ment The bill struck a blow at the
liberty of the press and he was opposed
to it
Senator Hagar moved an amendment

that one of the parties to the suit shall
be a resident within the jurisdiction of
the court where the suit shall be
brought

The senate then proceeded to the con

port the amendments to the river and
harbor appropriation bill for the survey
of tho four routes from the Mississippi

ing upon the work of improvement re
commended by the committee, as the
financial condition of the country would
not permit it.
Senator Edmunds, from the commit
tee of conference on the bankrupt bill,
made a report, which was agreed to.
He explained the report, and said that
most of the amendments were of a ver
bal character, and the bill was substan
tially as it passed the senate, with the
exception of the section relating to in
voluntary bankruptcy. As the bill
parsed the senate that section provided
that a voluntary bankrupt should pay
thirty-three per cent, of his Indebted
ness. As modified bv the conference
committee a voluntary bankrupt could

when Jeff Davis, or those acting with
him, would claim compensation for the
cotton used in the defense of Vicksburg.

the pcstoflice bill informally, and take
up the bill indict ted by him. Agreed

ence committee, on the part of the sen

n. oluen In the civil service bill.
passed by the house yesterday, reads as
follows, after having been modified, on
ho mniinnRof MesHs Butler and Stark
weather: "And it shall be the duty of
the ofllcer at the head of the executive
department at Washington to prescribe
i.liali mini for ascertaining the
authority, and to mate sucn appoint
ments only among candidates who have
oualifications of honesty, efficiency and
lldelitv, and not as rewards of mere
party" zeal, giving preference only to
those who have the additional qualifica
tions of honorable record in the military
or naval service of ths United States, or
the widow, wile, daughter, sister or
mother of such soldier or tailor: and it
shall be his further duty to make such
appointments as equitably as possible
from the qualified candidates presenting
themselves from the several congres
sional district, and with refer nee to
their Kpulatlou; and upon the removal
of toy appointee, the reason for such
removal Vhall be stated on the records
of the oepsrtment where the service was
rendered."
Mr. Cobb Kansa ottered an amend
ment requiring a settlement of all ac
counts for the services of laborers, work
men and mechanics employed by. or In
behalf of the government between tho
mi.iidfGrUiio
Uoneirlmstwlfrom twenty I
twenty-jjflh or June. 1S68, when the
eight-hour law went into cflect, and tho
present time. In reply to a question as
to how much that would increase the
indebtedness of the government said it
woum not increase it one cent, but it
would settle claims unadjusted to the
amount of six hundred thousand dollars,
Mr. Dunnell suggested a proviso re
pealing thj eight-hour law, but it was
ruled out on a point or oraer.
Mr. Cobb's amendment was rejected,
only twenty-eight voting In the affirm
ative. On the point of order raised by Mr.
Hale Maine, the second sectIon,which
provides for paying to the Chickasaw
Indians the arrears of interest which
accrued during the rebellion and are still
unpaid, on Arkansas aud Tennessee
State bonds, to the amount of two hun
dred and fifty-one thousand nine hun
dred and ninety dollars, was Gtrlcken
out.
Mr. Hale moved to strike out the
third section of the bill, which provides
for the paylog of some two millions of
dollars to the Choctaw and Chickasaw
Nations, In conformity with the awards
made by the senate in 1859,as a price for
some ten million acres of land in Miss
issippi, ceded by these Indians to the
United States In 1830.
Mr. Garfield, chairman of the com
mittee on appropriations, sustained the
motion to strike out the section on the
ground chiefly thai the appropriation
bills were not the place for allowance
of private claimf, and thatlt was unfair
to other claimants to select one particu
lar claim and put it into an appropria
tion bill. He reminded the committee
that this was the last of twelve regular
appropriation bills, and that he argued in
support of his motion to strike out the
section, as when narrowed down it was
an appropriation to pay over two mil
lioa three hundred thousand dollars to
two men. Peter P. Pltchlynn and Peter
Folsom, living in the City of Washing
ton, and neither of whom, he presumed,
had seen either of their tribes within the
last two years. His objection to it was
two-fold: First, that it was not certain
that the sum fixed was the proper sum
to be paid ;and second it was proposed to
pay into the hands of these men instead
of directly to the Choctaw and Chicka
saw nations. I predict that if the ap
propriation goes as provided in the sec
tion into the hands of these two men
there will be In less than two years a
great national scandal growing out of it
It will be found that the Indians have
not got one hundred thousand dollars of
it, or li tnat te not so tnere will oe
around and about Washington, not In
the balls of congress, I thank
God, tli9 most hungry and disappointed
set of ravenous wolves that have ever
sought to impel a claim through con
gress. Mr. Speer favored the motion to strike
out the section, and said that when,
some days ago, the house suspended the
rules, so as to make the section in order,
the halls were swarming with lobbyists.
There was not one of those men who
bear on their faces the marks of paid
and corrupt lobbyists that was not on the
floor that day. He did not say that the
claim was dishonest, and pressed upon
the house by the most infamous men
known to the history of legislative job
bery. He would never agree to pay this
amount to two irresponsible men, with
out security in negotiable securities, or
bo odd of the United States. These
bond would be handed around the
streets and in the corridors of the house.
He would comply with the treaty, and
set aside the balance due to the Indians
as a fund, the interest of which would
be paid to them, and such portion
of principal as the secretary of tbe'lnte
rior might deem proper to pay them,
and then he would have the house vin
dicate itself and vindicate the honor of
congress by kicking out of the house
this immense fraud.
Mr. Kasson moved to strike out the
names Pitchlynn and Folsom, hud in
sert in their place secretary of the inte
rior, for the benefit of tho Choctaw na
tion. He said that it was a matter of
general rumor that there were pledges
of contingent allowances in the matter
to the amountof nine hundred thousand
dollars. The fact that euch an opinion
prevailed was enough to make the house
guard the appropriation in such a way
that whatever was appropriated would
be sure to reach its proper destination.
In order to accomplish this purpose,
the first thing to be done in the interest
of the Indians was to put these bonds in
the bands of officers of the government,
to be disposed of according to the treaty.
Mr. Comingo, a member of the com
mittee on Inuian affairs, said he bad
been a member of the sub committee
which had considered the question, and
no lobbyist had certainly approached
him in the matter. But even if there
was a lobby, be asked the gentleman
who made such a hue and cry about it,
what had that to do with the validity
of the claim?
Mr. Shanks related the history of the
claim and insisted upon its justice.
Mr. Parker Me. opposed Mr. Kas
son's amendment, arguing that the ef
fect of funding money in the interior
districts would be to keep Washington
attorneys hovering around in order to
get a slice of it Referring to Mr.
Speers's denunciation of lobbyists he
alluded to the old Greek provero that
"a man always makes up his mind by
a comparison of what be would do un
der like circumstances."

ravorable Beporta.
Washington, July 15. The statis
tician of tbe department of agriculture
makes a report of the acreage lu cotton,
based on returns from most of the cotton
countries, and on personal observation
in six cotton States, as follows, the com
parison beinir with the area of 1873:
Virginia 80, North Carolina 89, South
Carolina 91, Georgia 90, Florida 91, Ala
bama 86, Arkansas 89, Tennessee 92,
Mississippi 88, Louisiana SO, Texas 102,
Missouri 95. The aggregate production
sliithtly exceeds ten percent The con
dition of the ctop Is represented by the
following figures, 100 being the normal
or fair condition: North Carolina 89,
Bouth Carolina 81, Georgia 80, Florida
90, Alabama 62, Mississippi 78, Louisi
ana 70, Texas 90, Arkansas 90, Tennes
see 85. The report of the condition in
June, 1873, was more favorable in every
State except North Carolina and Texas.
The record stands as follows: North
Carolina 85, South Carolina SS, Georgia
93, Florida 102. Alabama 94, Mississippi
92, Louisiana 94, Texas 86, Arkansas 93,
Tennessee 92. The season has been re
markable; the stand is very poor, many
plants not having made their appear
ance on the first of June. Since May
last, showers have been general, aua
prospects are much Improved; fields are
much cleaner than at this date last year,
and can easily be kept free from weeds.
With favorable weather rapid improve
ment is certain, and a fair comparison
with July is quite probable at next re
port Important Dcclnlon.

Nashvillb, June 13. This has been
an interesting week in literary circles In
this City. The Ward female school had
its commencement exercises, which were
well attended and were very entertain
ing. This school hts deservedly great
character. The Nashville university
commencement took place at the Capi
tol last Thursday night Degrees were
conferred upon several very promising
young men, among them a grandson of
John C. Calhoun, who has tbe same
name that the distinguished Carolinian
had, and who is said to resemble him
very much, having the same left-hand
gesture for which Mr. Calhoun was so
remarkable. The al umr.i society of this
institution, tho pride of Tennessee, met
on Friday and adopted some very strong
resolutions, and took steps toward in
creasing the endowment of the vener
able university, which numbers among
its graduates such men as Hons. John
Bell, Ephraim H. Foster, Edwin H. and
Andrew Ewing, Abed n ego Stephens,
and William B. Turley, of Tennessee;
Judge William Yerger, of Mississippi;
Judge A. J. Walker, chisf-Justice of
Alabama, and various others scarcely
less distinguished. The object of the
alumni is to make it equal in every re
spect to any university in ths south, not
excepting the
UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA.
The most accomplished scholar In the
south, DrrC. G. Smyth, of Huntsvllle,
Alabama, brother of Chancellor William
Smith, of your city, was selected unan
imously to deliver the nezt address be
fore the afumnt society. It is under
stood that this institution is now in a
much better condition than many sup
pose. It has three hundred thousand
dollars in money and property, and with
two hundred thousand dollars, addition
.al endowment, it can be made equal to
any university In the south. The public
school system of Nashville, which was
very fine, and improving, has received
a severe shock from the agitation grow
ing out of the civil rights hill. The ne
groes who favor that bill are very fool
ish. It will injure them more than it
will injure anyone else, and the only
object of it is to injure the southern
States, including blacks as well as
whites. The majority of the negroes in
the State, I think, are opposed to it,
though some who live about the cities,
and who feel themselves above their own
race, are advocates of it I believe the
object of tbe men in congress who advo
cate this bill, is to drive the white peo
ple from the southern States, and cause
these States to be Africanized. When
this is done, there will be no danger of
the southern States becoming their ri
vals in tbe manufactories of New Eng
land, because, they will never be any
thing more than cotton-planting States,
ocsupied and cultivated by negroes. The
object is to make an India of the sotuh.
