Owing to the late hour at which this letter was received lastnlght, we have not time to make any elaborate comments this morning. The propoai tlon is one that deeply concerns the peo ple of Tennessee, and will no doubt at tract mueh attention and excite general comment A tax-ridden people arej aaxious to discover Bome means by which to escape the burdens that op meal them. "We trust the suggestions of OoIoboI Burch will lead to an investi KUno whieh will result in solving the problem.

These communications must be the last. We cannot afford, ew that we have permitted the discus sion fr over a week, that it shall be conducted any longer, fruitless as it has been, and must be, of any definite or eatkfaotory conclusion. We, therefore, advertise our readers that the letters on this eulject which appear to-day on or fourth page are the last we will ac cept. Both sides have bees heard That is enough. for organization and success. Never has there been greater need for solid, com pact effort, for prompt, energetlo action.

Let every ward ana civu uis- trict imitate their example, and victory We have received from the Histori cal society of Tennessee a circular set tisg forth its objects and purposes, which we shall have pleasure in laying before the readers of the Appeal, in next Sun day's issue. It is a full and comprehen sive document, which none to whom it shall oeme who love Tennessee can dis regard. Time -waits for no man. Hence the necessity for work in the living pres ent. We must collect the Individual histories of the men who were the pio oseers of Tennessee, and must preserve the loesl incidents that are essential to the completion of the volume of the an nals of the State. Almost every man can contribute something; at least every family can increase our stock of knowl edge, or, at the farthest, every .district can add a chapter of interest and bearing directly upon the history of a State that, in commercial and manufacturing, as wH as agricultural prosperity,is destined to take its plsceamong the first and best iu the Union. Iiet us all do our duty in the compilation of the history of Tennessee. The Chicago Tribune, referring to the " Crescent City white league of New Orleaof," says: "The white popula tes the galled jade of the last decade has wineed patiently for many years. Now it proposes to kick. Secretary Seward called the struggle to free the Uaek from his chains the irrepressible oosflSct. Governor McEnery applies the same title to the struggle to free the southern white. It is pitiable that race should be pitted against race, but it is inevitable. The oath-bound leagues of the hteeks must be met by leagues of whites." This one it says "contains nothing whatever to substantiate the the cry of 'kuklux klan' which super' loyal and sub-sensible organs have raised, The platform recites the desolation of Louisiana; pictures the dishonesty of her rulers and the degradation of her judiciary; and declares that the whites are ' in no way responsible for the intol enable evils ol misgovern m ent under whieh the State isjperishlng.' " Despe rate diseases require desperate remedies, The case of Louisiana is one in point. is assured. If the Radicals triumph, the people of Shelby will reap bitter fruits They will be oppressed with taxes and the thousand methods of robbery insti tuted -wherever Radicalism rules, If the white people will turn out all la well. This is the work In hand. The white voters must be brought to the polls. The negroes will be on hand to a man. The whites have more at stake than the negro, and.they will certainly give one day to an election which In volves taxation, mixed schools and all that white men hold dear. THE THIRD TEKJI. Ex-Chief-Juatlce Loughery and Sena tor Gordon, of Georgia; Ex-Governor Herbert, of Louisiana, and Governor Kemper, of Virginia, have either squinted toward or espoused the election ot Grant es President for a third term. With all the lights before m, we are now opposed to it. It won'tdo. The Demo crats of the south cannot afford again to be taken in with "independency" or "liberalism." When next we select a Presidential candidate it must be through a Democratic convention, and we shall expect him to stand upon a Democratic platform, pledged to strict ly Democratic politics. We want a simon-pure Democrat like Thurman, of Ohio; Hendricks, oilndiana; Eaton, of Connecticut, or Hancock of Pennsyl vania. As the Mobile liegitter says: "If General Grant wants to try his hand for a third term, let him run on his own strength, or let the Radicals carry him if they can. Conservative men of all parties wocld simply disgrace them selves in the eyes of common-sense and common justice and propriety who un dertake to support the most selfish, un patriotic and unprincipled chief mag istrate who has ever sat in the chair of Washington, Jefferson and Adams. Let the south, of all sections, beware how they are seduced into this monstrous folly." THE REPUBLICAN ADDRESS. From the New York Herald we learn that the Republican congressional cau cus has issued an address to the party, whieh is intended to be the basis upon whieh that party is to be united and the congressional battle is to be fought. It contains the essence of a thousand cam paign speech e. The remarkable fea tures are the absence of all eulogy or even reference to President Grant, and the admission that upon the currency question the party is divided. The trans portation question is treated in the most conservative manner, which it was deemed wise to do, since the feeling about railroad regulation runs high in Wisconsin and the west. This mani festo, which will be sent to all local Re publican journals in the Union, with a request to be copied, constitutes the in itiative of the campaign and the com mon rallying point. It is the first issued si nee 1696, when the Republicans waged war en President Johnson and his fol lowers. One paragraph of It is worth quoting for the information of Demo crats, and especially Conservatives, hereabouts. It is this, addressed to the people: You are about to select representatives to a new congress. We earnestly en treat vou to send the truest and ablest Republicans you have; but we entreat you to send Republicans and not Demo crats. You will send one or the other. No matter what the individual may call himself or what disguise ne may wear, he will be a Republican or a Democrat. The la at nresent no room for any other style in our politics. If you do not mean to retrace the past you will se- Iivt Itenublicans ana not .Democrats If you mean to go forward In the future vou will select Republicans and not Democrats. The gist of this Is tho steady reitera tion of the existence of but two parties the Democratic and the Republican and that candidates for congressional honors must either be of one or the other. Conservatives or Democrats in clined to support the Radical civil rifhtii ticket in Shelby county, will 1mrm make a note of this. MOSSIEUK TOShOS COME AdMU, Poor, unfortunate Tennessee was scourged last year with the smallpox, epizootic, the ice-gorge, the cholera and the yellow-fever; but it seems the doom' ed State is to be visiteCthls year with a plague worse than all these combined It comes this time in the shape of that loathsomo epidemic called Henry 6 Foote. As this chronic cpout- er had not been heard from for several month?, the world was happy in the belief that he had been carefully soldered up in a double iron sarcophagus, and was buried deep down in the bowels of the friendly earth. But it seems this pestering blatherskite has a grudge against the people of Ten nessee, and is determined (to live for no other purpose than to enjoy the torture which his presence inflicts upon them. Foote's reappearance in Tennessee re minds us of the oMJwoman in the an cient song: Vletnala and drink were the chief of her diet: Yet this old woman ooald never keep quiet. He recently published a book in which he showed the instincts of the hyena, by burrowing in graveyards, dragging the fleshless bonea.of the dead from their long repose, and covering them with the slime of his filthy slander. Having traduced the dead.ihe now comes for- wardtocalumniatethellving. Hemade his appearance at Elizabethtown, Ten nessee, on Monday last, and after being introduced by the Radical congressman, Roderic Random Butler, he opened the orifice in his head and poured out as much soot on Andrew Johnson as is found in a rusty stove-pipe rudely srnifr ten. Judging from a report of this speech, it was indeed wrathful and fero cious; but the old rattlesnake has out' lived his teeth, and can do nothing but. rattle with his tail. In delivering his speech, Foote forgotjhis phthisic and his rheumatism, and jumped up and down like a supple-jack, or a little dog in high oats. The superannuated old man, in his childish imbecility, declared, 'pon his honor, that he wasn't t candidate .for United States Eena tor, nor the advocate of the claims of anyone. Next he commenced abus ing and blackguarding Andrew John son. In this he exhausted the vocabu lary of the fish-market Had Rip Van Winkle, after his somewhat protracted nap, been requested to address his fellow-citizens, be would have spoken as did this pestiferous o d man. Andrew Johnson has no doubt been many times wrong, as we have told him h was, We are not writing now to champion any aspirations he may cherish, but we do say Henry S. Foote, with his tooth less gums, can no more destroy his indi structible greatness and imperishable renown, than the disgruntled viper can damage the rat-tall file upon which it gnaws. Foote's assault upon Andrew Johnson, made at the instance of Grant and his administration, reminds us of those ragged and marauding Arabs who have been pillaging the pyramids for hundreds of years without the slightest detriment to those vast pro-historic piles. Now that Johnson is not cursed with the odium of Foote's good will, is favored with that high eulogy which consists in Foote's traduction and vilification, he will receive the friendship of many old enemies, for the name of Henry S. Foote is synonomons with infamy. He Is constitutionally a scold and a traitor. He was born to be false, and if for noth ing else, he deserves praise for the fidel ity with whish he is discharging his mission. Foote's appearance in politics indicates to honest men their duty. He is as essential to good men as a lifeboat to safe navigation, or a scarecrow to a fruitful field of corn. If honest men would know what is not right, let them study this naturally depraved man, Find out his sentiments and interpret the right, as a great nationality inter' pret their dreams by contraries. present on the occasion only two of them wunesseu me marriage ceremony nity years ago, tnese were me sisters or .aire. oaunuers Mrs. Harris, or iiuntsviiie, and Mrs. Foster, of Florence.

That this provi sion, enacted as a war-measure to sus tain the credit of the Federal government while the war was flagrant, will now be declared unconstitutional, I cannot doubt. Such a provision under our con stitution and government cannot be en forced in times of peace against an in dividual, certainly not against a State. To establish that this would prove a wise measure of revenue and greatly re lieve the people from the burden of taxa tion, it is only necessary for you to refer to the operations of the old bauk. When the capital stock of that institution was $3,079 000 it could make an auuual net profit or $500,000. Then, too, the Union and Planters bank, with numerous other State institutions, were in exist ence, having a very large circulation anu business, and necessarily limiting debtedntfef the Btate would be paid rrom lae nec proata oi tne nans. Id the foregoing, I have said nothing of tne irreat advantages which tne po- ple of the State, which its mining, manufacturing, agricultural, indeed all industrial interests would derive from the re-establishment of the bank and its branches. I have said nothing of the great political advantages that would accrue in building up in every State ,i powerful antagonist to the present; national bank monopoly, which will uramatelv prove tne greatest power in support of a central de-potlsm, as the etate tanK system would prove a power ful oDDoneut to centralization and a powerlul influence in favor of ihe con stitutional doctrine of self government.

ItJGLESIDE, LAWBENCE COUNTY. Aia., July 15, 1S74. I shall not burden this letter with the affairs of the nation, of the State or county, with which your readers are dally regaled by your regu lar correspondents, but as an occasional "taker of notes" outside of the beaten track give you a brief accouu. of a never-to-be-forgotten pleasure we en joyed yesterday in att'nding the golden wedding of our most worthy and distin guished mend, colonel James a. Saun ders, and his devoted, christian wife, Mary E. Saunders "a mother in Israel," as the minister called her in his prayer, "wnose cniidren rise up and call ber blessed," and the people delight to honor and love. Half a century marks an epoc-u in married urc ot rare occur rence, full of changes and events sweet and sad: and in this instance whatever shadows had been cast over Rocky I II 11 (their home) during this long period, only served to set off the picture of their long, useful and happy life to greaterad vantage. It was plainly visible that time had flown with rapid wiug during this happy period of fifty years, and the halcyon days of their present life is truthfully depicted by the poet: Ota, ipeate the Joy ye whom the sadden tear anrphte often, when you look aroanil.

Ana thus tneir moments fly. Extensive invitations were issued for this semi-centennial anniversary from twelve o'clock noon, to six o'clo k In the aaernoon. and those who were for tunate enough to go early witnessed the beautiful and impressive ceremony that crowned the day. A number of rela tives and friends had assembled in the front parlor. Colonel and airs. Saun ders were directly under the arch of the folding doors. An arch beautifully deco rated with evergreen, and in letters of freen cedar was the date, "tifty years." must here mention that an accident while riding on horseback more than a year ago, depiives Sirs. Saun- uers oi me power oi waiuing or standing unaided, which made the following scene all the more tender and sweet, she sat thus in an arm-chair. a sweet, benignant, happy expression beaming on her face. The colonel stood heslde her. looking every inch the court ly, dignified, high-born gentleman that nature ordained him. The folding-doors were tnrown open, and just beuind tne aged couple stood their entire surviving descenuauts, ennuren anu grand-cntl-dren. Out of a family of eleven children, four only remain, and these all met at the homestead on this occasion for the first time In many years; but the re union was complete, and under circum stances so auspicious and happy that cannot fail tobeforeverremcmoeredand cherished by each and every one of them. Major Robert Saunders, of Mo bile, Dr. Dudley Saunders andbis charm ing wife, of Memphis, with their four children, Dr. and Mrs. Hayes (ne Sal lie Saunders) of Florence, Captain and Mrs. McFarland (Ellen Saunders), of Memphis, and sweet Lizzie Blair, the cherished grand-daughter, who now pre sides at Rocky Hill those formed a semi-circle just behind their parents. Rev. Mr. Hawkins called upon the c-uests to rite in prayer, which he of fered in the most solemn and appro priate manner, after which the groom saluted bis "blushing bride" with a kiss as fervent as that ot fifty years ago, and placed upon her finger a massive ring with the dates 1824-167-t engraved there in. After this, the children crowded around "mother's chair," and kisses, aslutations and congratulations followed from alL These being over, a delight ful collation was Berved meats, salads, and branches July 1, 1801, was only S1.966.13S. My plan would be to re-establish the bank on the same general principles upon which the old bank was estab lished, making its Issues receivable for taxes and all otner dues to the State. TO PROCURE NECESSARY BANKING CAP' ITAI issue $5,000,000 of six percent forty-year Donus. 10 secure a prompt sale and alga price for these bonds, I would not only pledge the faith, honor and credit of the State for the prompt payment of both principal and interest I would also ap propriate and set apart the profits of the tne uauE, nrst, ior me semi-annual pay ment of the interest on the bonds, and aiter tue lapse oi a suitable lime x would, from the same source, provide an annual sinking-fund for the payment of the principal of the bonds. Thus, I believe, these bonds might be sold for ninety cents on the dollar, and the sum of s4.500.000 realized for banklncr Durooses, In making this calculation as to the probable sale of the bonds, I take it for granted that our next legislature will not violate the faith, honor and credit of tne state, now pledged for tne payment of the principal and interest of its bond ed indebtedness. Should I be mistaken In this expectation, I cannot foretell how valueless Tennessee bonds and Ten' nessee credit will become. Under the old and safe bankingrule ofissuing three for one, we could, on a bankincr canltal oi i,ow,uuu, issue a circulation or sis.' 600,000. In a field demanding great banking faculties, and comnarativelv unoccupied, we might safely calculate upon Keeping ;;iu,uuo,ooo of tills clrcula tion in active employment. I think it probable that at the reasonable rate of six per cent, interest, and it should not be mgner, EVERY DOLLAR OF THE CIRCULATION could be constantly and profitably employed. I quote the following from a renort of Hon. Cave Johnson, then president of tne Dans, unuer date oi .February, 185S: "From the first of Julv. 1S53. to the first of Januarv 1858. the nrofits of the bank amounted to$l,3Si,02 45, making over four and one quarter million of dol lars made by the bank for the use of the State, beyond its expenses. The bank nas instructed its correspondent in iMew York to pay the interest on any bonds of the State as presented, and keeps funds on hand for that purpose, and pays the check of the treasurer without regard to tne amount or his deposits, leaving the treasury often in arrears with the bank, as it is on this day to the amount of $120,000." "In addition to the aid thus afforded the treasury it may not be amiss to state that im portant facilities have been afforded to the community by furnishing over iourieen millions oi exenange from the first ot July. 1855, to the first of July, lbo'J, and that since the euspen sion of specie payments more than a million of dollars ol exchange has been lurnisueu tno citizens at one per cent. premium, whilst exchange was selling at irom Live to ten per cent, 'ine presi dent and directors did not think it just or proper to take advantage of the sus pension TO EXTORT EXTRAORDINARY PRICES FROM THE PEOPLE, "The examination of the profits of tne Dans: ior ine last lour years will form a more reliable test as to the future operations of the bank than at any former period.-This examination, when taken in connection with the report of tne comptrouer or me same lime, in duced the president and directors to ex press the opinion to the central assembly in October last: 'Whilst such a number of banks exist and such heavy liabilities of the State are to be met, and sucn a derangement of the currency, the aid of some bank ing institution to sustain the credit of the btate seems almost indispensable. It would not seem safe to dis pose of the Bank of Tennessee and leave the people exposed to the contractions and expansions in the currency bv the stockholders of other banks. The undersigned still entertain the opiulon expressed by the president and directors in October last, nor can he see how the constantly increasing liabilities of the State can be hereafter met with out the aid of some such institution pos sessing equal means and credit. The pronts oi ine last two and a half years show that the bank may be sately relied on to make between three and four hun dred thousand dollars annually. With out such aid the credit of the State could not be safe without enlarging the subjects of taxation as well as Increasing tin, omniint r,r 1 ...

It is not deemed out of place here to state that, In the opinion of the underslgned.double the capital now in the bank and branches mignt be userully employed by each of them, with little or no additional ex pense to the State, and would not onlv but secure to the people of the State an enlarged circulation In a currency upon which they could confidently rely, and be the means of enabling the bank to afford additional relief to the people du ring the pressure In the money market buctnanifestation of confidence in the oiK, after a thorough examination Into its condition by a iolnt of the two houses, and such a determina tion on the part of the general assembly to meet the liabilities of theState would secure the confidence of capitalists, en hance the value of the State securities and promote the best interests of our in ternal Improvement companies." Not an ARGUMENT is here urged by the honored statesman aud financier, then the president of the bank, in favor of sustaining that Insti tution which does not now apply with ten-fold force in favor of re-establishing I do not hesitate to say that, with a circulation of 513,600,000, the Bank of Tennessee and its branches would, at the end of the first six months from its establishment, place a large sum from its net profits on loanB, discounts, ex change, etc., to the credit of the treas ury, and that within two years from its establishment th.6 net profits, after pay ing tho interest on the bonds issued and sold to obtain the bank capital, wo.'Vl be sufficiently great to pay from on5 halfto two-tnlrds of the taxes which would otherwise have to be levied to meet the obligations of theState.

Dr. Goodrich has been pastor of tne .first Presbyterian cnurcn oi this city since 1853, and went abroad some eighteen months ago to seek the rest his failing nesun demanded. A widow woman named Bridget Gleoson, forty-five years of age, residing at ma university street, died yesterday while under the inflnence of chloroform in the office of Dr. H. T. Biggar.

SPOUTS ON THE IV AVE. The Saratogn IJom Bace Come OIF at last Tne Columbia Crew Winner by Two Lengths, In 10:30. SJiRATOOA. N. Y.. July 18. About fifteen thousand people assembled at the lake' this morning to witness theUnlver- slty boat race, set down for ten o'clock. Tne laue was smootn as glass. At 9:65 the first gun was fired; at 10:20 the second and starting gun; at 10:47 all of the boats got oil naudsomeiy together, the Columbia, at the half mile, taking the lead. The Trinity then made a spurt and overhauled the Columbia, and at the end of a mile both lead away from the Yale, which, in tne struggle, nau got ahead, but at that moment fouled and leu benind. Tne rrtncetou came up close on the Trinity, and tho othercrews were about in line behind. At the mile-and-a-half post the Columbia came to the front again, with the Harvard strug gilt g sharply; the remainder maintained their former positions. At the two-mile point the Columbia was still in advance, wnatue uorneii malting a spurt to over take her, and passing the Harvard.

LATER. Suudavthe Indians attacked Iiovlncr's ranche, in Jjost Valley, Jackson county, fifteen miles distant After a hard fight the Indians were driven off. taking sev eral horses, and killing one of Loving's men, John Heatb,who wasshot through the head. A courier was immediately dispatched to Fort Richardson for armed assistance, and within one hour and twenty minutes thirty cavalrymen of the tenth regiment, with three days rations, were en route at full speed for the seat of war. On the arrival of tho troops in tho valley not an Indian was to be seen, nor a trail found. The trooos then moved off. trolncr south in ward Keechie valley, and arrived here at me garrison to-day at twelve o'cIock. To-day the Indians in heavy force met me rangers, and after live liours nard fighting night closed on the fight leav ing the Indians holding the field, and naving mo rangers entirely surrounded. This was the situation last nlghtat eight o'clock wnen Major Jones, or the rang ers, sent in a courier to the nost com mander, stating that he had three men killed, five wounded, and twelve head of horses killed and fifteen men missing. J'r. .Loving also writes for long-range guns, saying that the Indians, without long-range guns, were able tokeep them ofi with their Winchester rifles. Within one hour after the courier arrived, one hundred mounted cavalry were again in the saddle, going a the.top of their speed fir the field of action. They left here hfteen minntes after ten o'clock last night, which will put them in the valley by ten o'clock tuls morning. INo later news from the Indian fight Tho esti mate of their number is from one hun dred to one hundred and fifty. ANOTHER DIFFICULTY NEAR TORT SILL. St. Louis, July 18.

Colonel Carpenter was badly wounded and six of his men killed. The Indian loss is unknown. After the fight the Indiaus came upon a stage-keeper and his wife, killing, scalping, skinning and most shockingly mutilating the body of thekeeper in the presence of his wife. The woman was carried into captivity. The latest accounts of the Indians is that they attacked a party of wooucnoppers, ana it was ieareu Emeu them all. The date of these fights are not given.

Forty-five citizens mounted and fully equipped have left Rawlins In pursuit The Indians all have breech-loading rifles and plenty oi nxea ammunition. Fiom an Occasional Correspondent. Collier vtlle. Tenn., July 11. Col- llervllle and the surrounding country, as far ns nan be heard from, has been blessed with abundant rains and the crops are a success. The people are now in a condition to leave their farms and devote their undivided time and labors to the election of our ticket. iDdeeu, we now feel that the ticket will be easily carried, but no exertion will be wanting in these parts to give it entire success. But there is some trouble in the minds of the people about the congressional canvass. Who can beatBarbour Lewis? is the all cbsorblne topic. It Is thought by some that the residence of the Demo cratic candidate will have a good deal to do with the election; that perhaps the candidnte should come from the eastern part of the district, ant upon this ground many citizens nere mvor the nomination of Colonel Marshal T. Polk, or Hardeman county. It lf said that Polk has an unexceptionable record, and perhaps all the requisites both for the office and canvass, and it is certain that no man could rally a stronger sup port in Hardeman and Fayette counties that Colonel Polk. The Radicals hold a meeting here to-day to elect delegates to this county convention. AttempOo Assaslnatea BapllX Minis ter. New York, July 19.
