The New York Tribune it terribly exercised that the Democrats will - lose the next house of representatives. Coming as it does from bo chronic a hater of Democracy the follow ing statement may be taken with some grains of allowance, and it is evident that the Trib une rather hopes that its prophecy will come true: There seems to be an increasing Demo cratic apprehension that the party may lose its majority in the next house at the same time that it gains control of the senate. The southern brethren are the most anxious on the subject. They are very solemn in their warnings againtt seating any more congress men who were never elected, because that way of gaining votes is short-lived, and full of reactionary lorce. They see that the date for securing southern claims will be indefi nitely postponed with a Republican house; hence this sensitiveness on the subject. The northern brother is by no means calm over the outlook. He swears under his breath every time anybody else says "southern claims" to him, and sits in his chair uneasily, as one who would only have his worst fears re alized if another extract from those Confed erate archives were to burst nnder him at any moment. Thee are indications of suffi cient importance to show the possibilities within the grasp of a united Republican party. Perhaps the Tribune forgets the doings in this respect of the last three or four Radical congresses, when Democrats legally elected by majorities of thousands were denied their seats and their places usurped . by Radical pretenders. Then the Tribune said "amen," and the proceeding was all right; but now, when the Democrats, acting fair and square, seat the legally-elected members, the Tribune insinuates that the Democrats are doing wrong. Why does not that journal think of Patterson of South Carolina, and of Spencer of Alabama, whose elections to the senate it knows were fraudulent? Why does not the Tribune take pattern by that eminent gran-ger-Btatcsnian, Senator Howe, from Wiscon sin, who says: Only five Republicans from the disaffected section now remain in the senate. The Re publican majority here is already but nom inal. If the opposition does not get posses sion before by a coup d'etat, it will take it in a few brief months by election. While I am permitted to linger here, I ask of senators on the other side of the chamber to be merciful in the day of their final triumph; to remeni er then that the Republican party only wrested the sword from their hands that they might grasp a scepter. But fairness would not suit the Tribune's purpose. The class of journals which that paper represents will tell the truth when it suits their purpose, but the trouble is that now a days the truth suits but very seldom. riCKeBl'BG AXD MKMFIII. We regret to see by theTicksburg Herald, of Saturday last, that that paper regards the claims of Vicksburg and Memphis to be ter mini of the southern transcontinental rail road as conflicting, so much so that Memphis cannot urge its claims without injury to its neighbor Vicksburg. The Herald credits the Memphis Appeal with a warm advocacy of Memphis as the starting point, but we are sure it has never found in our pleadings for our own city a word depreciative of Vicks burg, or disrespectful, or unkind toward it. We know our advantages, and sustain them, and without grudging acknowledge the right of Vicksburg to do the same for its own claims. Bat the Herald says agitation on this subject is "dangerous." That is possi ble, but dangerous to whom ? House's bill proposed a committee to select an eastern terminus to the proros;d road, but limited the road to "on or near" a parallel that is three degrees away from the parallel on which Memphis is placed. Agitation on the subject of the terminus is dangerous to this committee' scheme, and it is in tended to be dangerous to it. It is also dan gerous to the Herald" bill as long as that deceptive trick forms a part of it, and so it should be. But the Herald thinks that agitation "endangers" the success of the enterprise itself. So the abettors of the committee scheme have been informing ua in our own city, and have advised Memphis to go very timidly, gently, slowly, gingerly, mildly and modestly about asserting its own claims and proclaiming to the world its own advantages. As Memphis is in the way of the schemers, of course the value of this very disinterested advice is perfectly well known, and that advice is appreciated accordingly. If the rivalry and struggles and mutual recriminations of the partisans of this, that and the other scheme can proceed as they do at Washington without danger to "the suc cess of "Se enterprise," certainly mere ad vocacy of Memphis's claim will bring no danger. Silence and inaction on our part would be not only dangerous but fatal to our interests; therefore, Memphis will neither be silent nor inactive, and, if Vicksburg pleases to take a similar course, it is her right. The moderation shown in the public councils held in Memphis on this point has failed to suit the Herald; what would it say, then, if Memphis declared that it would support no bill that gare a terminus to Vicksburg? What would it say if this city called upon members of congress from this and neighboring States to vote against such a bill ? What would it say if Memphis declared that it would wait years for the building of the road rather than Vicksburg should be a terminus? That Mem phis should do all she can to make herself a terminus is not only allowable, but, in view of the advantages the road would derive from such a connection with her, it is laudable. But if, instead of urging her own claims, without depreciating those of others, Mem phis should denounce any bill that made Vicksburg a terminus, the Herald might rea sonably object yet that is the very position that paper takes; for speaking of Memphis, the Herald says: For self-protection, and in the interest of i jttice and fair play, New Orleans, Vicks burg, and all the vast interet-t east and west of these ciues, must oppose any bill engi neered solely and selfishly in the interests of this one city. Not a single member of con gress from this State, Louisiana. Alabama, lieorgia, the Carolinas or Florida ought to vote for such a bill. The building of the o.id is only a question ot tmi and we can i.tiord to wait tor years rather than aid a city that thus attempts t3 subordinate a great southern enterprise to her selfish greed. We regret that our generally good-humored cotemporary should have been led, under an impulsive ebullition, to use the above words. It thinks that for Memphis to say it will op pose the road, if Memphis is not made a ter minus, would be wrong; if so, for the Herald to say it will oppose the road, if Memphis is made a terminus, cannot be right. Each city may be made a terminus on perfectly amicable terms. BUNTED EXPECTATION). We have another illustration of the muta bility of all earthly expectations. The Jen- nens family has come to grief, for the end ol the great Jenneni case, which has occupied more or less the attention of the English chancery court for many years, has at length been reached. It was the original of the Jarndyce r. Jarndyce case, made famous by Dickens. Nearly a century ago William Jennens died near Birmingham, leaving a sufficiently large estate, the value of which has since increased to one hundred millions of dollars. The property Tell into the pos session of the Assheton-Curzon family, whose title, however, was not disputed until a half century later. Then some one discovered that the rightful heirs had been left out in the old, and, as the rightful heirs had by that .time grown to be formidable in numbers and scattered to the four winds, there was difficulty in tracing them out and raising a fund for the prosecution of their claim. Many were in America. Finally, after numerous delays, the case has been decided. The court ruled that there was no occasion to produce proofs of heirship. That might be admitted Under the English law, the present holders of the property having been in possession fif ty years, and there being no allegation of fraud on their part, they were legally invest ed with the ownership. This decision will bring mourning to the hearts of Jennens Jam ily in the United States. Twenty-five years ago the Jennenses held a convention in Vir ginia for the purpose ef raising funds to prosecute the Buit which has just been ter minated. Since that time everybody who rejoiced in the euphonious name of Jennens, have been building castles in the air. Some people endeavor to live on the prominence and respectability ef their ancestry, but the Jennenses seemed disposed to lire on the wealth they were bo soon to inherit. This estate became a mania with some of the family, who strolled over the country hunting up their rich kin. Whenever they met one of the Jennenses they frantically grasped him by the hand, and with the en thusiasm of "Mulberry Sellers" exclaim: "There's millions in it." In mixing his grog the old man Jenners would pause and descant most eloquently about the prospective for tune, and the old woman, demurely knitting in the chimney-corner, would anxiously peep above her goggles, and inquire of the return ing son if he had brought with him her share of the famous estate. The Jennens girls and boys were always the favorite belles and beaux, because they were regarded as young folks of great expectations. . But it seems disappointment came like a hail-storm and beat down the precious harvest of hope just as it was ripening into fruition. Hope spread a bright veil over the future. But the clouds which hung over the horizon have set tled, and darkness envelops the JennenB family. ' A moral can be drawn from this dis appointment. It should teach the young to rely on nothing but their own strong arms and indomitable energy. The trouble of the country is that there are too many Jennenses waiting for a division of the Jennens estate. The sterner lessons of life cannot be mas tered by the hope of wealth coming from the estate of relations who died only a few years ago instead of a century. The Cincinnati Commercial says one beauty of the Moffett system is that it is not compul sory. If a man owns lands and houses, and has valuable personal effects, he must pay the assessment upon them or see his property sacrificed to satisfy the demands of the law. But he is not compelled to pay taxes under the Moffett system unless he drinks, and it is optional with him to do so or not. There is no compulsion. If he drinks, he must pay, but if he chooses to join the noble army of cold-water men and women, he avoids the tax, and will probably be physically, as he surely will be financially, better off. The Moffett register is, then, a powerful persuader to habits of temperance, if not total absti nence. It is a recruit for the Murphy men, and will probably do as much in the way of temperance reform as the Sons of Temperance or any other organization intended to pro mote sobriety in the community. Then there is a gain all round. The State is benefited, the liquor dealers suffer no loss. The con sumers are given the option of drinking and paying, or abstaining and not paying, and the tendency is to restrain excessive indul gence, even when it does not work total ab stention. Ok late, several of the New England man ufacturers have been complaining of the quality of the bagging used on a large number of cotton bales that come into their hands. The bagging referred lo, says the New York Bulletin, is very objectionable, as it abounds in straw, which adheres to the cotton bo tena ciously that it passes through the picker, and consequently causes trouble and delay with the cards. Moreover, the bagging is of little or no use as waste, which manufacturers pay about ten cents a pound for, and the cotton is said to be badly stained where the wet bag iug touches it. The use of this inferior qual ity is likely to increase on account of its cheapness, and a treasurer of one of the large companies recently addressed a letter to a southern firm requesting them to bring the matter before the New Orleans cotton ex change. He further threatened to do his best to get northern buyers to agree to in struct their agents to reject any bales cov ered with this kind of cloth. Texas Sports. San Antonio, April 6. This section has been in some excitement during the past few days ever the proposed combat of African lionesses and Texas bulls. The first fight happened to-day, iust outside of the city limits, between a lioness and an immense Texas bull. The lioness had been starved to increase her ferocity, but it was overdone, and had left her weak and entirely at the mercy of the bull, who, in about ten min utes, had well nigh gored her to death. The lioness had but one hold on the bull, at the begin nine of the contest. To-morrow a lion will be allowed an opportunity to distinguish himself with the same bull. He is said to be in prime condition and very ferocious. From the Texas Border. Washington, April 8. Accounts from the Texas border show that recently there have been but few if any incursions from the Mexican side. Members of congress who have the subject of our relations with Mexico nnder consideration, say the delay of our government in recognizing that of Mexico has produced the improved condition of af fairs, but that government has not yet done what is required by our own as a prerequisite to recognition. One of the most serious causes of complaint is that our citizens are not protected from forced loans, while Brit ish and French subjects residing in Mexico are, it is said, not subject to such illegal transactions.

HOST IIOKKIBLK! A Beaatlfal White Girl Raised by m Xfirs-Wss It Rape, or Worse t Jack bo n (Tenn.) Tribune and Sun. 5th On Sunday morning last a negro by the name of James Doak was arrested in this city by Chief Marks and officer M'Cabe, on a telegram from 1 . D. Locke, of Rutherford station. After the arrest was made Chief Marks telegraphed to know the charge against the negro, and was answered rape. The negro was lodged in jail, and on Mon day Deputy-Sheriff J. A. M'Carroll, of Gib son, and a Mr. George R. Anderson, ap peared and demanded his delivery to them. At four o'clock in the afternoon of the same day he was taken to Rutherford, the scene of BIS HORRIBLE CHI it B. An interview with Messrs. M'Carroll and An derson developed the following facts: The negro haa lived tor many years witn Mr. i. D. Locke, the depot agent at Rutherford, and was fully trusted by the family. He worked about the house, and was considered kind and faithful. He was in the habit of making the tires every morning, and on this business had frequent access to the room of Miss Alice Locke, a very pretty and intelligent young lady, age about nineteen. Up to Thursday not a breath of suspicion existed against the netrro and the voung lady, but on that day the negro mysteriously disappeared, and next morning she revealed to her lather tne w 6TABTLING STORY OF A CHIMB AND HCI1T, that must have made his heart stand still, and stirred his soul to madness. It was to the horrible and disgusting effect .that she was enceinte by Jas. Doak, the big black ne anrn who had so Ion? lived in the family and was then fleeing from the consequences of the darkest crime in the calendar of human depravity. Did a father ever before receive from the lips of a petted daughter a story bo shocking and loathsome? She poured into his riotous brain a wild and noisome tale to the effect that the black brute had overcome her early one morning by forte And the use of medicinei and that for months she had been his mistress, afraid tor her lite s saae to reveal the awful truth, At last THE FRUIT OF HER VILE PROSTITUTION was about to proclaim the crime, and then the negro fled and she told her disgusting storv. Such is the tale poured into the father's maddened soul. Could the powers of earth and hell have devised one more hor rible? Did night in the darkest ages ever Bhadow a crime more crushing ? We can but believe the girl s story. She must have been overcome by force or drugs, and, being weak in character, impelled to silence and further prostitution through fear of death. We are loath to (accept any other theory. Read a description of the black brute, and believe other than the miserable girl's story if you can. He is tall, strongly built dark ash color, pop eyes, small head, with narrow, retreat ing forehead, flat nose, thick, protruding lips, and a broad, sensual moutn. tie is ugiy, filthy and brutish-looking. MISS ALICE LOCBIE, THE VtCTISt, is a young lady of education, and has always moved in the very best society. Her father is a Dromment man in his section, possessed of ample means, and idolized his pretty daughter, she was raised by her grand mother, a most amiable lady, now dead, hav ing lost her mother in infancy. For several vears she has been living at her father's, being under the especial care of a kind and aff ectionate sterjmother. She had every com fort, and even luxury-. The description of her tnven our reporter is fascinating, one is petite of stature, but a model in form. Her complexion is fair, and her cheeKS nave the rich bloom of the peach. Her hair is long. abundant, and dark brown, while her eyes are a liquid blue. She is regarded the pret tiest young woman in all that neighborhood, and was a veritable village belle. Our re porter's informant states that she is very dif fident, retiring and modest in her manners, and was universally regarded as one of the most correct and least fast among her com panions. It is also said that she has been CROSSED IN LOVE. Some twelve months ago she was engaged to a very worthy young man, but her father, who could not bear the idea of giving up his idol to another, Opposed and broke up the match. Since that time she has been visited by a number of deserving young men, one of whom addressed her some six months ago But she discarded every offer, and it is now pretty certain that when the last young man addressed her, she was then the enforced mistress of the black brute arrested here on Sunday. All the facts, the story of her beauty and her life, the tribute to her charac ter by neighbors that have known her from infancy, the pleasant surroundings of home, and the adoration of high-spirited and intel ligent men all forbid the idea that she could have been a . willing victim to the lust of a black, rough and ignorant negro. SCENE AT -BUTHERFORDk We learn that the excitement at Ruther ford ran very high and that there were threats of mobbing. But it appears that there were just enough grounds for suspicion that the negro was not solely to blame to pre vent mobbing, and the negro after lying in the calaboose a day and night, heavily guarded, was removed to the Trenton jail. Our latest information is to the effect that ex citement is still high, and that the people of Ruteerford have not recovered from the ter rible shock. Until the trial the whole truth will not be known. That comes off' shortly and the result will be reported in these col umns. SUNDAY'S TELEGRAMS.
