Mr Wilson issued a bill to authorize cor poia! ion that have had theircharter repealed to Cuuipromise their indebtedness and issue coupon bonds. Passed first reading and re ferred. The house bill relative to cotton-presses passed third reading. House. The senate bill providing for the appointment of a supreme court commission was brought up. The house went into committee of the whole to consider the b:ll to adjust the debt at forty cents, with four percent interest, but having taken no action, the committee re ported progress. Mr. Lester offered the lollowing amend ment, which was the bone of contention throughout the day:. Provided, That when the b.H sball have passed, tbe governor shall be Instructed to communicate UU the creditors or tbe State, or tbelr chairman, and asceiialn whether they will accept the terms of settlement mentioned in this bill; anil should they accept the said terms, the terms of settlement will D4 submitted to tbe people lu their sovereign capac ity for tbelr ratification, or rejection, at the ballot box; and no terms shall be submitted lo the people until tbe same Is agreed to by the bondholders, or the same Is signified by tbelr chairman. During the discussion, which was partici pated in by a large numlier of the members, Mr. Beaeley quoted from Thomas Jefferson to the effect that fourteen out of fifteen cf the higher classes cf those who get into pub lic places and nestle into places of power ani profit are rogues, and he had been con vinced of the fact by the report of the major ity of the committee appointed to investigate the State debt. Mr. Lester's amendment was finally re jected by a vote of 2i) to 41, whsn tlie house adiournsd until to-morrow morning. Ihe governor was constantly in consulta tion with members of the legislature to-day with reference to sending in a message to morrow urging it to call a constitutional con vention to settle the debt question. It was undet stood to night that a senator and a representative wera busily engaged ia drafting' bills to carry out that purpote. They will be introduced in both houses to morrow, so as to pass into law before 'he ex piration ot tho present session. It is generally believed in legislative circles that .the house will not puss the senate bill to settle at forty cents; that it ilr be loaded down with amendments to-motrow, and then rejected. The debate in the houe t day showed a wide diversity of opiaion, by the fact that they could not harmouizj on that figure, nor agree as lo whether they should first submit any proposition they might adopt to the creditors before submit ting it to the people, or whether the bond holders shonld be ignored entirely, and sub mit it alone for the ratification of the people. The board of alderman of Nashville adopted a resolution urging the legislature to Bottle the debt. The Mercenary View. Jackson Tribune and Sun: "There are minds so constituted aa to bo incapable of a noble or a generous thought. They look at the world through a eirniet-hola, ani sjty their morals through a seive that holds noth ing but dirt. They run in a low, narrow groove, and never rise al'ove or break over it. Accustomed to self-communion, and la- miliar only with their own wifeso, sordid and depraved purposes, the compleioa at their own schemes fives coloring to all their thoughts. The man who resorts to all the vila and disreputable ni?ans ot, making money can conceive ot no higher purpose in life, can attribute no Aobler purpose to oth ers than moves him, and in looking for the moving causes of action ia otfltrs, he astir mates it all by the mercenary standard. The pro8tituta denies the existence of virtue. The murderer fears that every man knows his secret, and tko political harlot, from his inner consciousness, ebteeuis every man's patriotism like his own, tfle reUgcot q scoun drel. It is upon this principle alone that y can account for tbe method acd utterances of certain pro tempore men in Tennessee. Unmasked and detected in me crime ot stau binir individual reputation fcr the chaaees of person! gain through political prefer ment, taey turn pon their accusers ana pre fer counter charges v readily and as reck lessly as the shrewd criminal bo seeks to save a damaged reputation by brpatirjij down the prosecution, fcuch are the means resorted to by certain politicians wiio sek to atifle the tree expression of puolie opin ion bv ttternDtine to discredit the press, the medium througii vbich it finds expression. Dishonest and insuiceja themselves, they think the whole world ot the &ame ..oplex- lon. .rrorupiea uy mercenary, mean acu selfish motives, they attribute like motives to everybody around them. We rejoice at the approach of that day when such exemplar? in Xennessee i 'Shall go down to tbe vile earth whence the? sprung;. Unwept, unbonored andunsuog.' " A (Savage Speech. Knoxville Tribune: "The speech of Sena tor (Jiapp not only wiped out the last pre tense of argument left to the repudiators, but seems lo nave yerny crazea wun maaness the men conspicuous of tjje low-tax champi- ons. senator savage s so-caaeu jwpiy to Senator Clapp was but a specimen of despe rate raving. We regret teat pis Bpeecn can not find its way to the hands of every man in the State who is capable of reading it. It would certainly induce every sensible man, who may have hesitated on this subject, to turn from the , repudiating faction forever. Mr. Savaga appears to recognize no govern mental authef ity aptfhere for the settlement of questions, outside of th bllot-bos, and to hold ia bad contempt the executive, legis lative and judiciaL departments of the elate, liis tirade against courts, and especially the supreme court- of the btate, is worthy of Kearney ia his wildest mood. As a saiwpie we quote: ilf about a court to settle this matter. Who's your judge" Kive little Tennessee Judges to sit upon the iioeatloB cfthe freedom or perpetual slavery of the people of teaodpeA. In tbe name of God. how me tbe man with a bumaa iieart who can propose auch a thing. Five Jif-tle Tenue-8e .uw-yers! How would tbey settle It ? Was there ever a p.ecedent In their Liw books for It ?

"It is huaiili.tis to think that such senti ments should be avowed on the floor of our State senate. What was the ciiairpian doing, or thinking about, that he tolerated so coti. se an &4i(t upon a co-ordinate branch of the State goverauiant? A grosser breach of de cornm is hardly cone7;ble, than this unre batusd tirade against the tue;!iers of our snpreme court, and the chair onpht not to have tolerated t for a moment, it is legiti mate for a legislator to criticise the courts in a respectful manner, but it is not allowable for him to indulge in scurrility. Our judici ary, in all its departments, but especially the supreme court, is entitled to respectful con sideration and to the protection of parlia mentary courtesy on the floors or our legisla tive halls, and it argues very badly for the prevailirg standard at Nashville, that a vitu perative attack, like that above quoted, should pass unrebuked by the presiding o ni cer of the senate, or the body itself." flxlne the RenpoBSlbillty. Chattanooga Times: "Governor Marks has placed himself on record as favoring any stttlemei-t of the debt which would not in volve the Stfite in a tax to exceed forty cents on tbe one hundred dollars valuation. Upon this the Kucxville Tribune draws the figures on the governor, and proves that a tbirtf cent tax -will support a settlement at fifty costs on the dollar at five per cent, interest, or that a forty-cent tax will provide tor a set tlement pi fifty cents on tbe dollar at six per cent. We do not set out the figures, having repeatedly published them before. It is only necessary to add that a reasonable assess ment of the property of the State would pro duce sufficient revenue to meet either one of the bondholders proposals, to-wit.: The whole debt at four per cent, interest, or sixty per cent, of it at six per cent, inter est, leaving a fair margin for sink ing fund, and abundance of funds for current State expenditures. After making the showing alluded to, the 1'ribune says forcibly that 'the figures demonstrate that the debt can be honorably and satisfactorily settled, and woe to the forty-first general assembly if it adjourns without settling it.' And what, we ask, shall be visited on the governor, in the event of failure? He is primarily rf sponsible for the ufter demorali zation of the State on this subject. Had he taken a statesmanlike we had almost writ ten honest stand on the question in his ini tial message, the debt would now have been either settled or in rapid process of certain adjustment, and all the Savages extent could not have prevented it. The miserable plat form he succeeded in foisting on the party; his weakness on the stump; his amazing stupidity in attempting to involve the whole railroad system of the- Sfate in temporary embarrassment if not in final rum; his last shuffling deliverance which simply sets forth that, having 'bulldozed' the railway mana gers, he is graciously willinsr to cease being a stumbling block in the path of those who seek to protect Ihe honor of the State, these performances make him the thief figure in the camp of the crooked on this momentous issue. We say let the blame rest where it chiefly belongs, on the head of the governor, lie had a legislature which was anxious to follow his lead. Never had a chief magistrate a better opportunity to ex ploit statesmanship, if any there was in him. Never had a governor of Tennessee such a chance to earn the reward due to brave, hon est, manly service to the people. The State knows how the opportunity has been slighted; the people arc feeling the results in embar rassed private credit, cities going to the doss, immigration destroyed, the valu3 of property depressed, capital shunning us as its owners would shun a viper. It is high time that that portion ot the Damocratic press of the State that has stood together for a fair settle ment of the State debt since the legislature convened, serve notice on the demagogues, high and low, big and little, that it has ceased to temporize with dishonesty; that it proposes in future to not only demand an un derstanding on this debt question, but that the party, to secure its support, must place itself Siiiily on an honest platform and must nominate men who can be trusted to carry such a "platform into effect and embody its principles into the general policy and legis lation of the State. The time for plain speakiDg has arrived. Let it bo improved to soma purpose." Who iieta the Money f Jackson Sun and "Sonotcr gar age makes the charge by implication against the newspaper press of the State, that tbey are insincere in their professed desire to see the State debt settled, and that they are im properly making money out of its agitation. Such serious reflections require some proof, and if the senator is honest in his declara tions, he will produce the proof. Tne news papers of the State have the right to demand the proofs or that the senator be convicted of falsifying the facts. We understand that the senator's former personal organ at the capi tal sold its editorial opinions for seventeen dollars and fifty cents. We are also reliably informed, and can produce the witnesses, that the ex-editor of a paper in this city, at ti,at time representing Senator Savage's views, sft-a tj;e oply money he ever received for publishing runUei cn &e jtate dobt, was the sum ot fifteen dollars nohi Golonel Savage himself. Th's may in some measure aecount for tho senator's belief, but we submit that it does not show any suffi cient ai30 for making the broad charges preferred by tae c.entitor. Because men of the senator's views have Leen evaded by the small sums mentioned, he has no right to ic fer that there is no such thing as an honest opinion. So far the facts show that the bond holders bavf? used seventeen dollars and fifty csnts, and Savage liliecg dollars, if his ex editor friend correctly reports hici, aac! net a cent cf that amount has been paid txj a pape? advocating the oJiapt'oraise of tbe debt at tbe time. Tbe gola-mine must be cn the side with which the senator is most familiar, for we must say in justice to ourselves that never a. vcrd, line or sentence, never a single thought or opinion expressed through our columns on the subjecjt vas paid for by any body. Our editorial opinions yo holij. above mercJiantoUe commodities, ana no one has ever purchased or proposed to purchase even space tor a communicittiou on' the subject. We have always spoken and written for what we believed to be the highest public good, i3d conceded like honesty of purpose to oth .erp, and yhije a sweeping charge against all newspapers .calls ouiy fcr a general response, we are prepared, when iaucii a ccaf is made specilio agaiact iis, to characterize it'aaJ ia author as it deserves. As to pecuniary obli gations, we owe more to Mr. Savaaa than to the State's creditors, for he does subscribe for the TA'.'n and Sun, and if there is a bondholder taking it yc Jjo nt know it. We have the proofs of what we ta've sbi tbij maimer, and vt e challenge the senator to pro duce the proois cf h;s sweeping allegations."

ANOTHER MEETING OF THE JOINT CAUCUS OF DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS. The two committees appointed last week by the Democratic ciucuses of the house and senate, held another joint meeting this after noon, and reached a final agreement cun ceming both tbe Keneral nature and precise form tf their recommendations for political legislation during the present session of con cress. They will recommend that the repeal of the law authorizing the presence of troops at the polls be effected by incorporating in the army appropriation bill a copy of tbe clause agreed to by the house of representa tives lat oession; that the jurors' test-oath be likewise simply abolished bv the insertion ot a repealing clause in th3 legislative, exec utive and judicial appropriation bill, aud that the provisions then incorporated by the house in tbe same bill amendatory of tbo law ia regard to the mode of impaneling jurors be subilantially re-adopted by the dominant party this session. In addition to the two last named clauses, there will be recommended for incorporation in o the legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill, as amended, the follow ing: An appropriation for expenses of the courts; a scries of clauses the effect of which, if enacted, will be to repeal the existing au thority for the appointment of chief super visors and deputy-marshals for elections, and to restrict the functions and powers of two superviors, of uiiferent politics, whose ap pointment in the present manner will con tinue to be authorized, to that of witnesses and challengers only. It will also hs pro vided that thesa supervisors must be residents and duly qualified voters in pre cincts where they are to serve. The jurisdic tion of tbe Federal courts to punish such Irauds in elections for represei.tativea to con gress us may be reported by the supervisor, or other citivions, is not to be interfered with, nor wdl the caucus be advised to disturb in any manner the existing taw koo vn as the enforcement act, relative to suffrage and other civil rights. ,The recommendations above outlined will be reported to the joint caucus of the Democratic members of the two houses to morrow evenintr- - A separate caucus of the Democratic semi tors will probably be held to-morrow after noon after an early adjournment of the senate. Senators Lamar and Yoorhees, who were absent on Saturday, participated in to day's joint m?sting of the caucus conmittees. Senator Saulsbury presided, ..Senator Thur- man being detained at come t)y illness. REPRESENTATIVE ATKINS'S VIEWS. Special to the New York Tribune: "Rep resentative Atkir.s, of Tennessee, who was phairinan cf the houaa committee on appror pnatiox.8 ia tbe last congress, said, in con versation, this evening, that he thinks the appropriation bills will be introduced some day next week, prooaoiy Dy nimseir, unless a new committee is appointed. They will be introduced in substantially the form in which they were agreed upon by the confer enpe gommittees of the last congress. This, of course, does not include tbo political legis lation proposed in either one ot the bills, as to wnich Mr. Atkins did not express any opinion. He says that he is in favor ot tbe course above indicated, because he desires an early adjournment, and thinks that there seed noj; be any extended discussion of the appropriation bitl. To the suggestion that the Democratic caucus had opened the way for the introduction and consideration of new business at this session, and that the large number of new members would be likely to dosiru considerable discussion, he replied that be bougnr. tne new members could be controlled. He believed that no general legislation beyond that con tained in the appropriation bills would be at tempted. While he did not desire to ven ture any decided opinion as to the probable length of the session, he did not see why an understanding should not be reached in three or four weeks, if it ever could. Mr. Allrina euvn lie. thinira there is no nroliahlllf v that the speaker' wiS complete and anhounpe the appointment ot tne regular committees under two weeks, There are a Urge number of new members and many diverse and con flicting interests to consider and harmonize.

Ladd and Wright. Ibis seenu a safe assumption, inasmuch as the former took part in the Democratic caucus yester day, and the latter has always been a strong Democrat,'! TIIE AMENDED KEYENLE LAvyr. The clause in tbe bill amending the inter nal revenue laws as It passed congress is not generally understood, as the provisions first agreed upon and published were changed in tbe conference committee in the last moments of the session, so that as the bill passed it is not commonly appreciated. The following is te law as it was approved by the Presi dent: Sec. 22. That whenever and after any bank has ceased to do business by reason of insolvency or bankruptcy, no tax shall be assessed or collected, or paid into the treasury of tbe United states, on ac count or Such bank; which shall diminish the assets thereof necessary for the full payment of all Its de positor; and such tax shall be abated from' such i;h;iohi;1 banls as are found by the. comptroller pf the currenpy to be insolvent; and tbo commissioner ot Internal revenue, when tne faots shall so appear to him, Is authorized to remit so much of said tax against Insolvent State and savings banks as shall be found to affect the claims of their depositors. Tnat In making further collections of Internal revenue taxes on bank deposits no savings bank, recognized as sucb by the laws of the State and hav ing no capital stock, sballpn account of mercantile or business deposits heretofore received, upon whlcb no Interest has been allowed to tba parties making sucb deposits, be denied t,ie exemptions at lowed to savings banks buying no capital stock and doing no other business than receiving deposits to be loaned Of Invested fur the sole benetlt of tbe parties making such deposit, without profit or compensation to the banks, It suo bank bus Paid the lawful ta upon the entire average amount ot such business or mer cantile depu-lls; but nothing in this section shall be construed to extend said exemptions to deposits bereaiter made, or In any way t j anect tbe liability of sucu deposits to Mixtion. That section thirty-four hundred and eight of tbe Revised Statutes be amended by striking out all after tbe thirtieth line and inset tinglhe following: 'Aaociii;;or; r companies known as provident Institutions, sa.lbga tanks, aitlnki-funds, r.r sav ings institutions doing no other business than re ceiving and loaning or Investing savings deposits, shall be exempt from tax on so much of such do- BvS'ts s tbey have invested in securities ot tbe idled Stale, ntui on two thousand dollars ot sav ings deposits and nothing ftt eaecsa ii.en.of, s:ade In the name of and belonging to any one person."

The resolution of Senator Hoar was taken up, declaring unconstitutional and revolu tionary the Democratic programme of legis lation, as announced by Senator Beck at tbe e'ose of tbe late congress. Senator Hoar spoke at length, deprecating in emphatic terms the course of legislation thus prefigured, and saving that the domi nant power sought to effect by simple pro cess what could be done only by n change of the constitution of the United States, alter ing the present relations ot three depart ments of the government. Senator Beck criticised Senator Hoar's speech as an endeavor to induce the Presi deat to veto what if passed would be a con stitutional law. He alleged that this matter bad been thrown forward by the Republicans simply to fortify the President's courage and help him carry out the indecent threat that be would veto legislation that had not yet come to him.

Ilritish Dread Prospect. London, March 25. The Mark Lane Ex press sajs: "The offerings of home-grown wheat at Murk Lane have been moderate; fine dry lots found buyers at last week's prices, but the increased strenth of the trade recently reported has been with difficulty maintained; indeed, for a moment, the up ward tendency of prices received a decided check. In secondary . qualities there have been little or no business. The week's im portation of foreign wheat into London were again moderate, last Monday's list showing arrivals ot 26,000 quarters, while the subse quent supply up no Friday did not exceed o'2,000 quarters. The requirements of the country has been very lijjht, and as millers appear for the present to be fairly stocked, or at any rate unwilling to follow an advance in prices, last week's improvement has been lost as regards American varieties. Tbe lead ing feature of the present season is the unu sually low point to which maize has fallen, and in spite of the reduced prices maintained tor the moment here, there has been no sign of a revived demand, as tho consumption is still iar below tho average. Barley has been neglected; there has been little inquiry either for malting or erindiuiy.
