We make room to-day lor a last word from Dr. Boggs, who continues in a communica tion in another place the same good-natured treatment -of the blasphemy of Monius which drew from us yesterday deservedly warm commendations of him. It is a great virtue to be able to do battle for one's cause, and do it skillfully, scholarly and creditably and withal with a spirit tempered by right apprehension, if not of the worth, at least of the courtesy due one's opponent and without losing one's temper. This virtue Dr. Boggs has shown he possesses iu an unusual degree for one of his cloth, for it is a filling of many f his profession to regard any treatment of sacred questions by the secular press, how ever serious, or with whatsoever good intent or purpose, as an encroachment on what might be called the patent right or copyright of the pulpit. The doctor has not, as did our holy co tempo rary, the Western Mctholist, misapprehend us, nor did he, like that sacred sheet, throw Blurs at our weaknesses or ignorances. He knows that we are of the world worldly; that the Appeal is a daily journal, which seeks to mirror every transaction of every day in Mem phis, and be the vehicle of every shade and phase of thought; therefore he confines him self to the words in controversy, and seeks at once to convince us and enlighten the public. If he ias failed with us, he certainly has not with our readers. He has, we feel wa.raated in saying, increased theu apprehension of the weight of the subject and its im portance in a philological if not a religious point of view, and has proven, that widely differing as we do, we have set an example ot real christian courtesy in debate. This is a great gain. We commend it suggestively to our sainted cotemporary who has got his back up in so thoroughly theological a way. Dr. Boggs's example is in this case profitable for reproof, aud were we theolog ically inclined, we would cite it as such to our brother, the Western Methodist. Suggestive, also, though in a wider sense, are the letters of Dr. James and Mrs. Meriwether, which will be found in the same column as that of Dr. Boggs. Dr. James has long been known to ns as one of the most accomplished of chemists and critical of scholars, and what he says, as in the present instance, is well aid and entitled to the consider ation of our readers. He writes with the earnestness of conviction, and while perhaps he takes to himself a scope broader than many of our readers can compass covering as he docs so much of the field of scientific investigation and discovery yet he cannot offend any by what he says, pervaded, as his letter is, by a most reverent spirit. It is an admirable letter, one that Dr. James can pride himself upon, and one that, we venture to say, will challenge for him the admiration of thinking men and women, be their relig ious news what they may. We publish this letter, as well as that of Mrs. Meriwether and that of Dr. Boggs, we need hardly say. without bias one way or the other, and only in pursuance of our purpose to give all sides a hearing and to open our columns to every topic worthy of being entertained by the pub lic, iind which may be treated of with respect for the convictions of others'. HAYES DKCLAREII tHAS'TU HVC C'KMMOK. The electoral commission has counted Ore gon for Hayes and Wheeler by the usual strict party vote of eight to seven. This vir tually closes the Presidential controversy, for over the count of the voes of the remaining States no question can be raised. Hayes will be our next President, and Wheeler Vice President. In this result it is the duty of all good citizens to peaceably acquiesce. Oiar reling over or carping as to the ways by which it was brought about will not reverse it, nor mitigate in the l.a-t the disappoint ments it doubtless brings to man v. We gave our consent, as Democrats, to the organ ization of the commission, believing that it was our only safeguard agaimst civil com motion and genTal ruin; and believing, too, that it was possible to find upon the supreme bench five justices whose sense of right and knowledge of law would life them above mere partisans jiip. In this we have ben disappointed, at least, as to the three who have steadily, as commliyionw. been led by Morton.

The Senate to be Invited to Meet the Hcuse on Monday Time Wanted for Consultation and Thoughtful Consideration of the Situa tion Moderation will Prevail. WASirrxGTOTJ, February 23. When infor mation reached the house this afternoon that the electoral commission had decided upon counting the Oregon vote for Hayes and Wheeler, a motion was made and carried to take a recess until to-morrow morning at ten o'clock, the purpose of the majority being to nolu a caucus betore the announcement ot such decision should be received. Directly after the recess a notice was read from the desk inviting the Democrats to remain for the purpose ot holding a caucus. When the hall had been cleared of all others, Rep resentative Lamar called the meeting to order. He said that he had been requested to suggest that the caucus adjourn till half past seven o'clock to-night, whereupon a number proposed Saturday night. But the voice of the majority being in favor of con tinuing the caucus this afternoon without mvioarnment, Representative M"Mahon fOhioJ ottered a resolution that on to-morrow a motion be made in the house, inviting the senate to meet the house in joint convention at one o'clock on Monday. Representative Kehr ottered a substitute, nam.ny: "That a motion lie made in the bouM inviting tbe senate to meet in joint session to-morrow, at one o'clock, for the pur pose of proceeding with the count of the electoral vote." lo this Representative Xeal offered an amendment, which Representative Kehr accepted, to the effect that after the two houses shall have met in joint session to receive the decision of the electoral commis sion on the Oregon question, and shall have separated thereon, the house will then pro ceed to discuss the decision. An earnest and excited discussion ensued, in which Representatives Hurd, Southard, M'J?a'uon, Vance Ohio, Knott, Sparks and Lane participated, favoring delay until Mon day. Representatives Hill, Brown, Willshire, Harrison and House, were in favor of invit ing the senate to meet with the house to morrow for the purpose of continuing the counting of the electoral vote. Speaker Randall made a few remarks, counseling cidm deliberation hi view of the importance of the questions presented. Representative Field also spoke briefly, stati.ig that he had prepared two bills, one providing for the election of the President and Vice-President on the first Tuesday in May. the presiding officer of the senate to act as President in the interval between the four: h of March and that time; the other bill providing for quo warranto proceedings, so that the respective contestants for the i'resi dencv and Vice-Presidency could go Iwt'ore the Cnited States supreme court and there pres-'nt their claims to the office. I'ader the operation of the previous ques tion, the substitute and amendment to Rep resentative M'Mahon's resolution were reject edyeas, 4-1; nays. Go. The resolution of Representative M'Mahon, inviting the senate to meet the house at one o'cl' ck Monday, was then adopted by about twenty majority. The reasons given by several gentlemen who were present at the caucus for this de lay, were that the house wanted time for re flection and to prepare objections to South Carolina and other cases. A nunilwr of gen tlemen who did not sanction the delay left the hall -from time to time before the close of the proceedings, and others privately said, after adjournment, that they would not be bound by the caucus, as many Democrats had purposely absented Qieniselves. Representative WillLs fX. Y.J will, under all the circumstances, earnestly oppose the postponement contemplated by Representa tive M'Mahon's resolution. Na action was taken on Representative Field's tvo bills, which Representative Wil lis r-garded as unconstitutional; and besides, a j i) warranto before the supreme touit, soriu of whose members have decided against TiMn, would be ineffectual. The Democrats of the caucus who favored an immediate resumption of the counting of the electoral vote express their surprise that thoe who advocate delay mustered in such strong force, and say that many Democrats who will act. differently had left the house for their residences before the announcement for a causes, not supposing that one would 1 held without sullicient notice: beside?, the sixty-six who voted for delay scarcely num Imt more than one third of the Democrats of the house. It is reported that just before the adjourn ment of the caucus a resolution was rfdopted, by i7 against :fc, providing for another recess of the hoii. troni Monday until Tuesday. Prior to the introduction of "this resolution," a nuraW of the m-'iniifrs r.f the caucus had left the hall, saying that they would not abidi by the action which provided for a re cess from to-morrow until Tuesday.

February 23-After four anil a half hours in secret session to-day the decision resulted in giving Oregon to Hayes and Wheeler, by the usual party vote of eight to seven. A resolution declaring Watts (the Hayes elector) ineligible was lost by the same vote. Several other resolutions were reject ed, when Senator Morton offered the follow ing: liesolred. That W. H.

The report in substance is as follows: The electoral commission having received certain certificates and papers purporting to be certificates of electoral votes ?f the State of Oregon, and certain papers accompanying the same and objections thereto, report that it has duly considered the Siime, and has decided, and does hereby decide, . that the votes of W. H. Odell, J. C. Cartwright and J. W. Watts, the persona named in the certificate of the secretary of the state of Oregon as the persons receiving the highest number of votes for the Presidential electors, are the votes provided for by the constitution, and that the same are lawfully to be counted as testified to in the Rertificate of said elect ors, nameiy: Three votes for Rutherford B. Hayes, of Ohio, for President, and three votes for William A. Wheeler for Vice President. The report will further set forth that the election of Watts by the other two members of the electoral college was in accordance with the constitution and laws ot Oregon. The grounds for this decision, so far as they concern the eligibility of Watts, are substan tially, that it is competent to go behind the certificate of the governor so far as the same is not founded upon the action of the can vassing or returning authority provided for by the laws of the State, which authority, in the c,i?e of i)regon, is held to be the secretary of state. The report will also take the ground that it is essential to show that an elector was eligible on the seventh of Novem ber, provided it be shown that he was eligi ble v. hen he cast his vote in the electoral college; and the fact appears that the alleged ineligible elector Watts, was chosen to fill a vacancy caused by his own absence from the electoral college, and that he was not ineli gible at the the time he cast his vote. Senate. Washington, February 23. At the expi ration of the morning hour, Conrad X. Jor dan, chashier of the Third optional bank, of New York, was brought to the bar of the senate, when he sent to the clerk's desk and had read a statement, disavowing any inten tion of treating the order of the senate, or its coimuittee, with disrespect, and said he had declined to produce the books and papers of the bank because he was not the custodian of them, and had no control over them, but that the president of the bank was their custodian, and could produce them. He added that he declined to answer further without counsel, and asked to l-e allowed the advice of coun sel. Senator Mitchell submitted a resolution set ting forth that Jordan had refused to testily, etc., and directing the President of the sen ate to certify the fact to the United States attorney for the district of Columbia, which led to a long debate. At the close of the discus-ion Jordan stated that he was willing to appear before the committee and testify. The senaU; then adopted a resolution discharging Jordan from contempt upon his ap pearance before the committee to testify. The senate then resumed consideration of the naval appropriation bill, the pending ques-tion being upon concurring in the amend ments made in committee of the whole, which were concurred in without debate. The bill was then read the third time and passed. The senate then resumed consideration of the bill to create a sinking fund for the liqui dation of the indebtedness due the govern ment by the Pacific railroad companies, but it was laid aside informally, and the bdl granting a right of way to the Hot Springs railroad company over the Hot Springs reser vation, Arkansas, takea up and passed. After an executive session the senate took a recess till ten o'clock to-morrow. IIoate. Theiou met at ten o'clock and went into committee of the whole. Mr. Eden in the chair, on the sundry civil appropriation bill. Various amendments were adopted for the payment of the expenses incurred in contested election cases. Several amendments were offered by Mr. Henderson, increasing the ap propriation for the Rock Island arsenal, and were rejected. Mr. Young moved that twenty-five thou sand dollars of the seventy-five thousand ap propriated for the survey of the northwestern lake.; and the Mississippi river, be used solely for the survey of the Mississippi and for the purpose of reclaiming the overflowed lands in the Mississippi delta. He thought that the snterprise was one of the greatest importance to the country. Mr. Holmnn moved to fuither amend by adding to the appropriation of seventy-five thousand dollars the proceeds of the sale of steamers lelonnng to the survey of the northern and northwestern lakes. After some discussion, Mr. Hoi man with drew his amendment, and, on motion of Mr. ('onger, the appropriation for the survey of the lakes and the Mississippi- river was in creased to ninety thousand dollars. The question thn reurrir.g on the amendment ottered by Mr. Young, it was agreed upon. The committee, at a quarter past three o'clock, on motion of Mr. t'lymer, rose, and Mr. Clymer then moved to take a recess till ten o'clock to-morrow. Both motions were mail'! in rapid succession, and with a good deal of commotion on the floor, the general understanding being that the object was to stave off any further action on the lresiden tial count, as a rumor hail just reached the hall that the decision of the commission in the Oregon case was adverse to the Iemo- crats. The Republicans insisted on the vote being taken by yeas and nays, and the result was: Yeai, loO; nays. 10'J. The following Democrats voted against p. recess: Beebe, Bell, Campbell, Cutler, Goodin, narden burgh, Haymond, Holman, Kehr, Landers Conn. , Lemoyne, Morgan, NewIPenn.J, Stevenson, Warner, Wells (Mo. J and White house. A Democratic caucus was announced to take place immediately. Hayes' Kouthern Policy. Washington correspondent Courier-Journal: The Motional Republican has a signifi cant leader to-day upon the same line as Fos ter w speech upon Hayes's wouthern policy. It opposes keeping up sectional divisions, and recognizes tne met that the negro is falling under the natural influence of his employers. Even the outrage charges are treated as exag gerations. It is proposed to let the people of the south select their own State governments, and to invite southern statesmen having the confidence and support of the people to the counsels of the nd ministration. Prominent friends of the incoming President say that this will be his policy. Per contra, John Sherman, the bitterest of all rulers of the south, is spoken of as the probable secretary of the treasury. The Plot. Don Piatt in the Cincinnati 1'nquirer: The true inwardness of the afhiir is as little com plimentary to the Democrats as the Republi an8. It is now a generally recognized fact that our flushy, legal old luminary Justice David Davis was returned to the senate to get him off the electoral commission. I doubt whether any understanding was had with the legal luminary, as it was deemed quite un necessary. He has been bitten with the Presidential madness, and finding that his seat on the bench was in his way, he gladly caught at an opening from the senate. This brought in Joe Bradley, and the conspirators felt all right. They knew Joseph, whose coat has been of many colors, principally dirt. He was one of the two that Grant put upon the bench for the purpose of packing the court in favor of reversing its legal-tender decision. Still the fellows were not safe. The decisions of the commission had to be such indecent violations of law that the people through the house of representatives might yet make an ugly fight and defeat the conspirators in the fighting. This because of the shaky financial foundations upon which the conspirators stood. Any grave difficulty at the national capital would affect our securities, and a deprecia tion of these meant financial ruin to all of them. So it was necessary not only to get the decision counting Florida and Louisiana for Hayes, but it was also necessary to get that decision quietly accepted. To this end negotiations were opened with the solid south. The oppressed white men were promised their local governments; Grant re fused to recognize either Packard or Cham berlain; while a letter from Hayes pledging himself not only to put a southern Democrat in his cabinet, but gave every assurance to abandon the poor black man, over whom he wept when he heard of Tilden's election, to the care of his white brother's shot-gun and bulldozers. Our southern friends, like wise men as they are, drove the best bargain they could with the managers. Not content with a place in the cabinet and a i ecognition of their local governments, thly stipulated for their Southern Pacific railroad. This scheme of Tom Scott '8, to benefit the south a littla and himself a good deal, would meet with a good deal of heavy grading were Tilden to be inaugurate!!. AU sorts ot efforts have been made to get our one eyed one to pledge himself in favor of this internal improve ment, that, bv the bve. outrht to be made. even if it does strain the constitution and the public conscience. But they were made iu vain. There has been a decline here in Til den stock since the holidays. I believe I can date the beginning of the decline and fall from a certain day during the holidays. hen I met a certain nartv of southern congressmen in New York. Tne eulogies of the New York statesman and Democratic candidate ceased, ended were never heard after. And now you will observe that the men who cry most earnestly to submit are the hot-headed, fiery-hearted ex-Confederates, while the northern and western Democrats, who were supposed to be conservative, are loud in a call for "wah." Mr. Reagan, of Texas, for example, led the caucus in behalf of peace and surrender. Of course he was not influenced by the Texas Pacific railroad. Oh, no; cerfcv'nly not. I looked at these gen-' tlemen the other night when John Raymond was doing "Mulberry Sellers," and when old Mulberry said 1 have been reconstructed; I have shaken hands over the bloody chasm; I am in favor of the old flag and an appropri ation," these gentlemen looked-at each other and laughed significantly. Well, what are we to expect? These people were not only conquered by us when under arms, but since their surrender we have turned them over to be plundered and abused by degraded car petbaggers and brutal negroes in a way that would nave made death and confiscation at the end of the war blessings to them. Speculating on the Cabinet. W. D. B.'s Washington letter in the Day ton Journal: Cabinet speculations in the absence of any intimations whatever, are getting to be boresome. I see new slates about once an hour. I again repeat some of the gossip I hear. There is a general agree ment among the guessers that vV. M. Evarts must be secretary of state. But as New Y'ork is a Democratic State, and is worried by two Republican factions, a more thought ful class suggest that 'New York may not be represented in the cabinet at all. When I speak of two factions I do not include the eminent conservatives, of whom Mr. Curtis is leader. I take it that the positive " Reform ers " will lie distinctly recognized. New England will have one man, but who? Hale, of Maine, for the navyuRice, of Massachu setts, or Edmunds. The latter is named for several places. Pennsylvania is considered certain to be recognized. Secretary Cameron only is named. Nobody doubts that the " noblest Roman of them all " in the recent great struggle, Senator Morton, will be felt in the organization of the cabinet, although he would not accept a place for himself. It would be a grave blunder to overlook him. Doubts are expressed whether Ohio can wisely ' occupy a cabinet seat. There are only seven places to fill, and she has the President. When Ohio is mentioned the wags respond : "Ohio! oh, something ought to be done for Ohio; she's never had any thing." In a previous letter I said all that is to be said about Kentucky, but much will soon be said about Bristow. The opposition to him by some good and by some indifferent men is pronounced. But you may be sure that the idea his name was ni--ide to represent pending the Cincinnati 'convention will be clearly recognized. What to do to assure the south of Republican sym pathy is a most perplexing question. If the Republicans had any thoroughly distinguished aud able leader in any southern State the dif ficulty would solve itself. Unfortunately there is not one man outside of Kentucky with reputation which would rally the con servative element about him. Several fair men are named, but not one that would fill the measure of public expectation. I recently gave you a list of possibilities, but will re peat it, with additions, viz: Ex-Senator Poolo and Judge Settle, the late Republican can didate for governor of North Carolina; Bris tow and Harlan, ot Kentucky, who are the only Republicans named. Conservative Dem ocrats, however, are urging Senator Key, of Tennessee, Ex-Senator Joshua Hill, of Geor gia, an old AVhig, and Hancock, of. Texas. But a Democrat m the cabinet would not be prudent. There are many other honorable places in the south for southern men when the right ones for the work expected of them are found. Louisiana and Sonth Carolina. Washington Eveniny Press: In regard to Louisiana, tke President will not undertake to decide as between Governor Packard and Nicholls unless he is compelled to do so in consequence of some open demonstration against the peace. He believes, however, that Packard's government could only be sus tained by the presence1 of troops, and that as there remained but two weeks of his admin istration, he would hardly feel justified in taking any action, for his successor might not entertain the same views as to the use of the military in support of State authority, in which event it would place his act in a very unpleasant light. Besides, when he recog nized the Kellogg government four years ago, he received no support from a Republican congress, the place where he had the most right to expect it, and for these reasons, to prevent any embarrassment to himself or his successor, he would take no action unless it was forced upon him. The President in speaking of the political status of South Carolina and Louisiana said that the cases were extremely dissimilar, and could hardly be treated under one general line of action. In South Carolina the content has assumed such a phase that the whole army of the United States would be inadequate to enforce the authority of Governor Chamlieriam. That the people of that State had resolved not to resort to violence, but adopted a mode of re sistance much more formidable and effective than armed demonstration. They have re fused to pay their State taxes, and it would be useless to sell out their property, as no one would buy it, and unless Chamberlain could compel the payment of taxes it would be ut terly useless for him to expect to maintain his authority for any length of time. This state of affairs must inevitably result in the abandonment of all efforts by Governor Chamberlain to maintain himself in the ex ercise of gul)ernatorial functions of the State of South Carolina. President Haj-e and Pol lev. his ' Mouthern New York Herald: The determination of the. President to have nothing in Ixmisiana but peace gives great satisfaction here, where it is considered a settled question that Presi dent Hayes will, on an understanding with Governors Nicholls and Hampton that no disorders and injustice shall be allowed, re move the troops and let those States govern themselves according to the will ot their peo ple. When this is done, a southern Demo- ! ayt said on Sunday, "There will cease to be ai.y wauthern question," and it is the opinion of the best informed men here that the new President will find himself cordially supported in the south by a respectable and numerous class hi all proper measures of policy, and that he will find no difficuly in procuring the help oT influential men in all these States, na tives and old residents. It is already reported by persons who pretend to be well informed that the new cabinet will contain two south ern men, and the names of Senator Hamil ton, of Texas, and General Gibson, of Ijouis iana; Governor Hampton, of South Carolina; Ex-Governor Brown, of Tennessee, and oth ers are mentioned. It is, possible, however, that President Hayes will find no southern men whom he wants willing at this time to enter his cabinet, and that they will say to him that they prefer to give him for the present an indeienUent support, and let further and cliser adiances of the cabinet kind wait until his general policy and his course toward the southern States have had time to declare themselves and to be understood by the south ern people. This decision .would be a wise one, and it would, no doubt, be agreeable to the mcoming President, who could at a sub sequent period make room in his cabinet for such southern men as he should then see would give more strength to his administra tion. Cabinet rumors abound to-night. Be sides Mr. Evarts, Mr. Ben Harrison, of Indi ana, and Senator Edmunds are spoken of for secretary of state. Senator Conkling is understood to desire no place in the new cabi net; he wishes, it is said", to serve out his term in the senate. Mr. Eugene Hale, as Mr. Blaine's intimate friend and Secretary Chandler's son-in-law, and as familiar with navy affaire, is generally accepted as the probable secretary of the navy. N ew Yorkers speak of Mr. T. C. Piatt, member of the pres ent congress, as the probable postmaster-general. He is known to be on personal good terms with th new President. Senator Sher man, General Garfield and Mr. Charles Fos ter, member of congress from Ohio, are named for the war department, and late this afternoon an improbable rumor gave this place to General Logan. Both Senator Alcorn, of Mississippi, and Judge Little, of North Carolina, are named for cabinet positions by admiring friends, and one of them may be offered a place. The secretary of the treasury, it is generally un derstood, will be sought in New York or one of the eastern States; and general rumor points to Judge Stanley Matthews, of Cin cinnati, as the next attorney-general. Gen eral consent reserves the interior department for a southern man. These are but a few of the more probable rumors and reports con cerning the next cabinet in circulation here this evening. There is no lack of gentlemen ambitious to serve their country in such posi tions," but the jealousies and rivalries which exist in all parties, and especialty in one which has been long in power, and which makes one man's meat another man's poison, begin already to show themselves. Pennsyl vania wants a place in the cabinet, and the prttsent secretary of war, Mr. Don Cameron, and his brother-in-law, Mr. Wayne M'Veigh, a. politician of quite a different kind, are loth named aS desirable men. There is a good deal of speculation about the manner in which Senator Morton's "claims" will be recognized. Some people pretend that a cabinet position for Mr. Ben Harrison, the Republican candidate for governor last fall, would gratify Mr. Morton, as it would the rest of Republican Indiana; but others laugh at this suggestion. There are rumors that Mr. Morton is himself desirous to be secretary of state; but they are only rumors. It is gen erally assumed that the new cabinet will be so constructed as not to revive or perpetuate any of the old quarrels in the party; that it will be Whig in its tendencies; that it will not be offensive toward, southern prejudices while strictly Republican, and that the new President's distinct aim, politically, will be to re-establish harmony in the party in the north, and to draw to him a following of in fluential men in those southern States where in in old times the Whigs were the strongest. These are Louisiana, North Carolina, Ten nessee, Virginia, Arkansas, and perhaps Texas. The nomination ot Mr. Evarts is said to denote, if it should be made, a recog nition of those Liberal Republi-ans who came back to the true fold. The exclusion of Mr. Bristow would mean a disinclination to carry into the next four years one of the great quarrels of last year. Whether Mr. Schurz will receive the ffffer of a cabinet position is not known, but his name is not mentioned here. The war and navy departments are generally understood to be reserved for Republicans of the bluest and truest blood strict party men. If the new cabinet is to be conciliatory toward the south, and not needlessly reviving memories of the struggle which has just closed, this would exclude from it, by general consent, men like Senator Sherman, who gave a character to the New Orleans returning board; Attorney General Tafl, who managed the troops and the Republican politics .in South Carolina; Senator Morton, General Garfield, and prob ably even men like Judge Settle, who is re membered for his ofticiousness in South Car olina during the returning board scandals there. An important part of the new ad ministration policy will, it is believed, te the granting 'of appropriations by congress for levee and other internal improvements in the southern States, and it may be thought advis able by the party leaders" to show their good disposition toward the south in these ways as early as possible. In this case the new congress wou'd be called together at an ear lier day. The next house of representatives will have so small a Democratic majority that some Republicans think it would be useful to make the attempt at once in the new con gress to make a break in the southern Dem ocratic ranks, by introducing internal im provement bills, which would, undoubtedly, receive the support of Louisiana, Arkansas, and even some Mississippi Democrats, as well as of memlers with Whig antecedents or constituencies in Tennessee, North Carolina, and other States. Unless this consideration produces an early call for an extra session it is likely to be delayed, because a new Presi dent usually finds himself more comfortable and better able to frame his policy without the help of congress. The IHspersion of the Grant Family on the Third of March. Washington correspondence New York World: "It is arranged that the President will leave the Executive mansion on Saturday, March 3d, and, with Mrs. Grant, will be the guest of Secretary Fish until their departure from the capital, which will be early in April. Mr. and Mrs. Sartoris willtake up their resi dence this week with Mrs. Louis Dent, in this xity, and will remain until May, when they will sail for Europe. Ulysses Grant, jr.. the President's secretary, will leave for New York on March 5th, to begin the practice of law with the hrm ot which he is now a mem ber. Colonel Grant, who has been in Wash ington for two winters, engaged in making copies of the records of General Sheridan's headquarters, destroyed in the Chicago fire, will return to the headquarters of the lieutenant-general at Chicago at once. The data which he has been accumulating while here embraces not only the official records, of the headquarters, but also the official material, for a full histo ry of Sheridan's connection with the war. The President will give no more levees nor dinnera. The statement that he will give a farewell dinner to his cabinet was en tirely unauthorized. The absence of the usual Presidential levee ths winter has leen the subject of comment. It can be sf?ted that they were abandoned on account of the excited state of feeling incident to the politi cal contest between the friends of the candi date for the succession. The President has no intention at present of taking up his resi dence in this city. The house tvhich he owns here was taken by him onlv to relieve the parties who had purchased the ground from nim which his Own houBe partly occupied.

The finance committees of the two houses had an informal conference last night with J. E. Peyton, of New Jersey, representing northern holders of Tennessee bonds. Another meeting was had to-day, the two houses ad journing for that purpose. The result of the two meetings is an agreement to make a re port to the legislature recommending th ap pointment of a conference committee to con fer with the arbitrators mentioned in the gov ernor's message, and as has been selected by a meeting of the creditors of the. southern States lately held in New Y'ork. The Schools. Knoxville Tribune: We regret to learn that there is very great danger of our public school system being emasculated by the abol ishment of the offices of State and county su perintendents. We repeat what we have before said: If the legislature sees proper to take this step, let it go furrher, and repeal the whole law. We are tully satisfied that, without the superintendences, the money now paid as school taxes can be much more profit ably expended upon good private schools than upon such public schools as will soon curse the State. Amazing- Work. Paris Intelligencer: The legislature of Ten nessee has been hard at work now for about two-thirds of the time allowed that august body. They will have about .twenty-five more working days. The people who pay the bills' want to know what they have done. Well, they have done an amazing amount of hard work, and their good, sympathetic con stituents will hardly refrain from weeping when they know that these patriotic, self sacrificing swuls have well nigh ruined their health and wrecked their manly constitutions in the heroic struggles of the present sersion, and all in behalf of the poor people at home. They have elected two United States sena tors, and introduced bills until the clerks' ta bles are covered knee-deep or so with these ponderous documents. They have passed two bills, as we hear, and came very near passing another one something relating to dogs. If they pass all the bills now before that body they will not adjourn before the fourth of July. They have nearly all the dog bills in, as well as several other measures of vital interest to the State. This august as sembly will make its mark before if leaves Nashville. They intend to tear the old code into doll, rags, and make another that will force the lawyers and judges to stand 'on their heads io understand it. They intend to reduce the salaries of all the important public officials in the State, except their own, to sta rvation rates, and thus rid the country of all such public nuisances. They have before them bills of reform, which will upset the whole of our naughty judicial system, and make justice cheap and speedy, while litigants will find law cheap as dirt. New systems of fi nance, of law, modifications of taxes, new road laws, and laws to regulate all things and everybody's business, may be looked for, and when the mighty work is done, every man, woman, child and negro in Tennessee, will be happy, and grow rich, under the be nign influence of the wise laws to be enacted by this legislature, while dogs split their sides with mirth, and the ferocious sheep will be banished from the State. We move that the present legislature have until July 4th to finish their labors, and that they have their salaries doubled, by unanimous consent of the people, as a small testimonial of gratitude for eminent services. Beopenlns Hatchie River. Brownsville States : We believe a bill has been introduced in the legislature to declare Hatchie river navigable, but it seems that the dog law -and other great overshadowing in fluences have caused it to slumber, with no present prospect of an awakening. It is nearly two years since the States took the lead' in agitating this question, and we re mind our representatives that their constitu ents in this end of the .State are constantly asking why it is that the bill in question has not been pushed to its final passage. They care but httle about th"repeal of the ten per cent, interest law in fact, many of them op pose it most strenuously; they are disgusted with the ridiculous i hase after the honor (?) of repealing the dog law, and they are sur prised and pained to hear so little of tlieir favorite and important enterprise, the re opening of Hatchie river for navigation. The people of naywood, Lauderdale, Tipton, Fay ette and Hardeman are clamorous for a law providing for this much-needed protection against railroad monopolies and extortions, and they will not oe satisfied if it is not se cured during the present session of the legis lature, the counties enumerated above raise and ship, at least, fifty thousand bales of cotton annually on the lands in easy reach of Hatchie river. The average cost of nt.inOT,kri4- rui I 'i 1 .1 stn J llw'l.l ,13 0 O nuifiii'Ub i vyi.i v. . v.. in'- i mi i i'ti.1, 1 . i.. This amounts to $112,500. If Hatchie river were open the cost would not exceed f 1 per bale, or an aggregate ot f oU.UUO, and a saving of 02,500. . Then the saving in re turn freights would amount to perhaps $20,000. Beside all this the splendid but now useless timber in the same territory would find an outlet to the best markets in the world, and lands now without a market value would be worth from twenty to fifty dollars per acre. A large number of people now shut out from access to the busy thor oughfares of the commercial world would be placed in direct connection with Memphis, St. Louis, New Orleans, and other cities of financial and commercial importance. The great advntages which would necessarily fiov.- from these results cannot be computed. The people have raided their voices in this matter, regardless of party prejudices, dog laws, and other deceptive humbugs, and they intend to be heard. We hope and believe that our immediate representatives in the legislature will do their whole duty in this important matter," and thus truly gain the aw ard of well done good and faithful ser vants. The Six Per Cent. Law. 'Hie following letter from an eminent financier of Memphis has been received atJ Jashville by a leading member oi tne legis lature: I see the house has passed a most sti ingent usury law, making it a forfeiture of both principal and interest to take usury. Ave you aware that the supreme court of the United States has decided that no State law can cause the forfeiture of the principal debt due to a national bank in a case of usury, but that Uicy "an only be required to forfeit interest? It was so decided in a case that went up from Buffalo, New York, a year or two ago. Therefore, if you pass this house bill without an amendment you will put us into such a shape, that, in a case of ueury, no individual, no corporation, and no bank, except only the pet institution called a national bank, can collect or save the princi pal. The house has perpetrated this enormity with its eyes wide open, and cannot plead ignorance, for the facts were laid before them, and there was ottered an amendment to put State banks in all respects, as- to the interest, equal to that of the national banks, but it was largely voted down. Does not common honesty, even if the State legislature is un willing to sustain and encourage its own offspring, demand that State banks shall be put upon the same and equid footing that you are compelled by the courts to permit to national banks? The New Y'ork legislature did it as a matter of justice to her State banks. We can now only look to your senate to prevent such an enormity, and ask from you and your brother members protection from this injustice. SOUTH CAKOLIVA. Columbia Draped in Slonrnlns, and a Cieneral (.loom Overspread the City on Washington's An niversary. New York, February 23. The President having prohibited a parade yesterday of the so-called reorganized rifle and sabre clubs, Columbia, South Carolina, passed the day in gloom. From the flag-staffs on the public buddings the Stars and Stripes floated at half-mast, draped with black crape. The same sad insignia was observable in many other portions of the city. Business was gen erall suspended, and the city exhibited all the quiet of a Sabbath day. The citizens generalfy remained at home, except a tew ne groes, until about four o'clock, when a num ber assembled at the public hall to hear an address by a distinguished Republican orator on the life of Washington as contrasted with that of President Grant. This speaker inti mated that the order from Washington pre venting the parade was not intended to be put into excution until the militia companies were marchine in procession, when the United 'States soldiers were to have been ordered out and a conflict produced. HISS OLIVEIC The Methodists or Sew York Agree that Hhe Hhall be Permitted to Preach. At the last Monday morning meeting of the Methodist clergy of New Y"ork, as reported. by the Y orld. Or. Howe moved to invite Miss Oliver, bachelor of divinity and master of arts, and minister at the Passaic Methodist church, to address the meeting next Monday on "Temperance." . Brother Taylor thought one of the great objects of these meetings was to create public opinion and influence church legislation. He said, "I move to consider the same question, not, howevex, to oppose the motion concern ing Miss Oliver, bachekor of divinity and mas ter of arts, for I shall be glad to hear her." Miss Oliver, Brother Howe said, was worth hearing. Brother Nichols I am reminded of some thing said by Lorenzo Dow. Point of order overruled.! Dow got up once and said, "1 saw a wonder in heaven a woman" laugh terj he did not quote the rest. Here is an other wonder in heaven, Methodist ministers inviting a female bachelor of divinity and master of arts to instruct them in their duties in regard to temperance. Laughter and ap plause. Brother Slyser was opposed to inviting Miss Oliver, as many were opposed to having women m the pulp it. It was decided to dis cuss the itineracy. Brother Bryan I move that Miss Oliver be invited to preach here the first Monday in March. Brother Roach Just a word, sir; while the conferences are considering this very ques tion of licensing female preachers, is it wise for us to so far foreclose that discussion ? I do not know whether Miss Oliver has a li cense. 1 know that there is a decision of a bishop against granting sueh A Voice Yes, sir. Brother Roach (resuming) Very well, sir, when we come here in the character of the preachers' meeting of New York there is such a thing as decency and order laughter, and while 1 do not say it is indecent or disorderly for a woman to preach, I do say that an in vitation to do so from a body like this is un precedented. Brother Taylor said he wanted no craw fishing in this matter. "Jnst now," said he, "when a well-known Presbyterian minister is being hung up by the gills for allowing a woman to preach in his pulpit is the very time for us, as Methodists, to invite a woman to preach here." Applause. J Brother Reed moved that Miss Oliver be simply invited to preach-in a church, and that the meeting adjourn to go and hear her. Brother Taylor I want no sorVwool sub stitute. I want the meeting to invite this woman to preach. There is a great deal in that motion. Applause and cries of "Amen."J After more discussion, Brother Bryan's mo tion was carried. The Pattl Trouble.
