Kverythmjf seems to be working well for the
tuUire prosperity of Memphis. The greaU-t
itnpedimen '9 th ) (roipe.i'y of this city is
the remorselea ex Actions of the tax-irather-er,
acting under the mandates of the Federal
courts. The burden oftixationis to heavy.
I: is crushing out the life oi the solid men
who are prompt in obeying th law, however
opprcMive it ruay le. Memphis hat reached
tbebotUna, and the rill soon buildup and
t uieige into a more brilliant career, but she
cannot do this by a taxation which amounts
to confiscation. The values of the city have
shrunk to nearly cne half; burdens of debt
contracted in flmu times have grown no lej.
Ic-tead of shrinking it ha swollen in vast
prop-rtionj. The leitis'&t jre of Tenaes.-ee wdl
mxt on the first Monday in January, and
the tax-payers are a ikinif themselves: "What
can be done to save ourselves from ruin? '
Tais is a grave, vital question. Many pro
pose to diaaolve tbs city charter. Other,
large tax-payers, are oppoed to such a radi
cal proposition. There should be no conte &
on this question. If favored at all it should
be by the united voice of the people, afUr
every other resource has been exhausted. It
is a fearful thing to see a great city without a
city government, and with no more organi
zation than a cross-roads village. Put it
ia equally a fearful for a city to main
tAin its organization mainly for the
purpose of destroy ng iU citizen for the bene
fit of remorseless creditor',who,wilh the man
dates of the Federal cou ts, take the la-t
poULd of fleh without caring tor the ruin
they are bringing cpon the city. We have on
Gle communications, which, if publuhed, for
and againnt abolioh n the city charter,
would make a page in .the Api'Kau Dat,
hoping that our citizens can unite on some
plan for future action, we fhall not lend our
columns to a discuj-ion of this question until
the issue becomes inevitable. Memphis is
not isolated and alone in her city indebted
ness. Fiom Boston tj Texas there is a gen
eral dtcnsion of oPpre t-ite city taxation and
the remedy. Th) s:t iat on in Mobile is much
like that oi Memphis. Ia ducuuisg it, the

mittoe of the whole house and ordered
prin ed; but first, he desired to make some
comments upon it. Although, as the whole
document was highly satisfactory, yet there
was snrns references in it whicn should be
met at the earliest practicable moment. He
referred to that part relating to the southern
States. He (Mr. Wood) failed to see ' what
the President saw any disposition in the
south to avoid or annul in any degree the re
cent constitutional amendments. He failed
to see any indication in tbe tenth at f.n? elec
tion, ut any time, under any ' circumstances
for a series of years, of unwillingness to live
in entire amity with the whole country in
regard to the laws or to obey the government.
Hi regretted the President, who had com
menced his administration with such a noble
acd patriotic position as against
exerc'sed Lv his predecessor, should now indi
cate change of policy. He had watched with
interest the course of the administration, in
order to see whetLer the President would be
creed frcm the manly and noble position
taken by him. He Knew that there was a
wirg ot the Republican party dissatisfied
w,th that position, and it bad ocen a waiter
of interest to the whole country to know
whether the President would continue to
maintain his attitude. While the President
exrre. 8ei bis views in very mild end very
decorous language, yet he indicated quite
clearly that the condition of things in the
south was not satis-factory to him. The
President had referred especially to the elec
tion in South Carolina and Louisiana; he
had been able to single out two States and
rnly two isolated injUns in Uie two cUites.
1 hat was an indication of
TIVE, and it was only bcause it was such an indi
cation that be (Wood) felt it his duty to de
clare that this was no foundation for the
allegation of wrong by tbe south. It was to
be regretted tbat while the President's eyes
were open to congressional elections in South
Carolina and Louisiana, tbey were closed to
vt hat Occurred is the pity or xkw
on the fifth of November, where foar thou
sand legal voters were dragged to prison by
government officials, where hundreds of
them were plunged into the vilest dens as
common prisoners, and where, besides
those who bad been arrested, ten thousand
other voters had been intimidated, thus
making a diuerence at leatt of fifteen t boa
mad votes in the city of New York. The
President had not seen that. The Repub
lican pref s of New York had not told that to
the Pri lent, but it bad pointed him to the
south. He (Mr. Wood) regretted that the
President had thought proper to lend his
high p 'fcition to the reiteration of misrepre
sentation organized for him by the Repub
lican press. He had the highest regard for
the President, believing him to be an honest
aaJ patriotic mau, ad it wa, therefore, a
matter of profound r -gret that the President
should permit himself to be n'l comment in
tie Lands of an ultra wing of the Republican
to V.'col. He characterized it ai very un
usual to interrupt the ordinary fona of pro
ceeding, which w simply to refer the Presi
dent's message and order i's printing, than
by debating any if its sugees'iors. and he
thought the kind of suirgcrtions nude by the
centieman from New York as sMIl more un
usual. The exAct language of tbat part of
the message witn winch the eenteraan found
fault was not in bis (GaificldV) mind, but the
pentleraan's language was very plain. Ha
( Wood) criticised certain reference in the
President's message as to some disturbances
in the course cf tbe i edcral elections in
several States, and contracted that with what
he chose to call the uob'e beginning of the
administration in favor ot self-government,
and said that the President has i,hown vacil
lation b cause ho had seen fit to refer to dis
turbances in the Federal electiocs. If the rigtt
of a State to attend to its oia local concerns
undisturbed was in any way mennsiktent with
the riirht of tb national government to at
tend to national elections, and if that was
what the gentleman caued
ho bored they should all vacillafe in that
way. He (Garfield) had never mal4 himaelt
a Darticular advocate or defender of any ad-
ntiuietration for its vacillation or want of
vacillation; but if tbe gentleman (Wood)
could make no better case than be had made.
he bad not very well opened the ball this
winter. Tbat gentleman could not see that
there bad been any disturbance in matters of
election alter a pause), except in nis own
State). He (Wood) bad seen soma signs, if
not of disturbance, at least of vaccillation, in
the city of his adoption, end in his State; bat
l'at-j were eot sao-i instances cf vacillation as
the gentleman would bave brought up in
discussion. It did not signify that tbe gen
tleman bad not seen any distnibances in the
national election elsewhere. If the President
had seen them, it was
and the President had eaid so in his message.
I f the President had seen thera and had not
said so he would not only have been guilty of
negligence but of a positive fault. The Pres
ident had referred to it modestly. He had
invited the attention of coegrees to it. Did
the gentleman object to having attention
pointed to it in that way ') Had he or any
gent eman on the other side any reason why
lie did not wish the attention of congress
pointed to the .
For his own part he velcomed each calling
of attention. The Preainent ought to be
thanked for it by the gentleman Irom New
York, as it afforded an opportunity to him
to have this vacillation examined into close
ly. He (GarSeld) bad had the impression
made upon his mind, from a somewhat care
ful reading ot the public journals, that a very
considerable illegal disturbance had taken
place in some of the southern States.
II 3 had even heard it stated that
bold, open acknowledged intimidation had
been employed, notably in South Carolina;
and in districts where there had been an
overwhelming majority of one political party,
no sigu uf any such majority hud appeared
at all. This might be uo exaggeration, but
if so it wa,i cne that was brca-icast through
the public press, and one which congress so
notable is the present one for investigiiting
all chances of wrong doing should investi
gate. He supposed that his friends on the
other side would welcome thi President's
suggestion as exactly in line of their conduct
hitherto; he hoped they would
Mr. Wood defended the position he had
taken, and repeated his expression of regret
that the President had picked o'jt two cases,
and deemed them of sufficient importance to
present them to the world in bis annual mes
sage. It was an indication tbat the ultra
win? of the Republican pariy was forcing
the executive to aid it in displaying the
so that party could hold on to its ill-gotten
power, and continue that power by the plun
der of the treasury.
Mr. Hale said that it was alleged by the
gentleman from New York that the Presi
dent bad been dragooned by tho radical wing
of the Republican party into the course indi
cated In his message, and that that wing ot
the party was likely to control the adininis
tration. He would teil the 'gentleman" that 1
oi the great and fundamental doctrine of
protection of a citizen in all bis rights, there
was no radical or conservative wing in the
Republican party, but that there was one
party in the laud, united to a man, on the
proposition that an American citizen north,
south, and everywhere should be protected
in tbe exercise of his constitutional rights.
Mr. Cox N. Y. asked if the gentlemen
from Ohio and Maine failed to remember

to receive in payment of taxes the now depre
ciated notes of the Bank of Tennessee as it
bound itself to do by section twelve of the
charter of the bank in 1838, or whether it
can repudiate that contract as to notes issued
atter May 6, 1861, on the ground that the
State government was then forcibly seized by
insurgents and its powers usurped, toe
cause raises several federal questions ot
interest and importance to the court. In the
opinion delivered by Justice Millt-r, he holds
that the theory that there can be two different
political entities called States, -within t,he
same geographical limits, oca loyal and cne
rebellions, is fanciful and untenable; that
there never has been more than one political
society in existence as an organisation in tho
State of Tennessee from the date of ita ad
mission into the Union, in 1796, to the pres
ent hour.
Second That there is no foundation for
the theory which maintains such a separa
tion of seceding States from tbe na
tional government; as to the rebellion, it is
void and invalid unless ratified by
positive law enacted since their restoration.
iuird that there is no evidence in this
case to prove that tho issue ot notes by the
Bank of Tennessee alter May 6, 1831, waa
made for the purpose cf giving aic ad com'
i'crt to the insurgents, 6r in' vfolation'of tho
constitution and laws of the United States,
and that consequently the contract which the
btate made in 1M to take the notes of the
Bank of Tennessee in payment of taxes is,
and has all tbe time been, under the protec
tion of tbe Federal constitution. The
judgment of the supreme court
of Tennessee is, therefore, reversed,
and the cause remanded for further
proceedings in accordance with this op.nion.

General Sherman on the administb.;,t
A cowiounication from General V. T.
Sherman, addressed to the chairman of the
joint commission having under consideration
LUC liucouuu 11 uauaiciiiuif iuo muiau uuicau
to the wardepartment.was to-day laid bafore
the commission. The general, after stating
his readiness to respond promptly to any
summons of the commission, says: "I am
sure, trom oinciai ana personal intercourse,
that Secretary Sherman and Commissioner of
Indian Affairs Hoyt have been extremely
anxious to have, aud have labored hard for,
an honest administration of the affairs
of the Indian bureau, as organhe' by
law. I personally know that' Mr.
Hovt went far as he could
perlv to prevent the recent removal of
i-Cl3ud and ' Spotted-Tail 'n Land of In
dians from the Missouri river to their present
locations, which must, he thinks, certainly
result next in war, and that their removal
resulted principally from the President's
promise, based upon the advice of General
Crook; and I further believe that Mr.
Schuiz and Mr. Hoyt have done all that men
could do from their quarter to ramose weak
and dishonest agents and replace them by
houeat agents. 1 wish you, and if proper,
the public, to construe the present conflict or
antagonism to be not personal, not a ques
tion of honesty, but a natural and necessary
conflict of antagonistic systems." After com
menting at considerabls langth upon
previous Indian wars, the general
says it requires no prophet to
foresee that more wars were near at hand, es
pecially with the Sioux, recently located on ihe
upper Niodrjrah. He asserts that the pres
ent Indian agents with those two bands, as
alto w; th other tribes of the Sioux on the
Missouri river at lower Brule, at the Chey
enne, Standing Roik, and Fcrt Peck agen
cies, are utterly and ridiculously powerless to
keep their Indi.tns peaceable without the aid
of the army. "To me it is a matter
of demonstration Jtjhat rfc the pies
ent time, ' nd fur' years to
come, that the Indian bureau of itself, with
out the help of the army, cannot maintain in
peace the larger tribes of Indians, and peace
is essential to enable white emigrants to fill
up the surplus country as farmers, grazers
and miners." The general continues at length,
giving rersons why the Indians should be
controlled bj the war department, aud says:
"It ought to be a question of national econo

of Keith azamst Clark, collector, theieby set
tling the liability of the State to receive the

It is more than probable that the holders of
the new issue will now abandon the assets of

Speaker of the Htate Senate.
Editors Appeal Several of your tem
poraries in Middle Tennessee are nrgintr in
warm terms tbe claims of Hon. Z. W. Ew
ing, of Pulaski, for the speakership of the
senate. It is very important that the
speaker should be fitted for the position, in
order tbat business may be promptly and
systematically dispatched. From a personal
acquaintance with Mr. Ewing, I am satisfied
that a better selection could not be made,
and if Middle Tennessee is to have the
honor it could not be more worthily be
stowed. He is a man of excellent qualifica
tions, cither as a business man, or as a par
liamentarian of unexceptionable habits;
quick, energetic and impartial, and would
preside with ability and dignity.
