- London. Jan. 25. A epecial to the TtU
rjraph, ana all the evening journals, con
firm the dispatches published by the morn
ing press, of the surrender of Paris. , The
surrender, on the terms suggested by Bis
marck, are approved here by the press,
unanimously. The Committee of Defense
has entrusted Favre, I learn on high au
thority, to make the best terms he can, but
to bring the conflict to a close in any cas.
There is a general agreement in official
circles that the end is momentarily at
hand, as far as the defense of Paris is con
cerned. The Imperialists are active, and
the English Government is known to fa
vor the restoration of the Bonaparte dy
nasty under the Regency.
Advices are allowed to leave Paris, en
dorsed by influential residents," approving
this termination of the war.
The J5cAo speaks authoritatively on the
question of surrender, and says that a for
eign officer, a messenger, has arrived from
Versailles, who, it has leaked out, brought
the surrender, signed by r avre and Bis
marck. At 2 o'clock, r. M., the French Consul
discredited the report that Favre had ar

k lard from Col. John Baxter.
To the Public:
ipeech, delivered a
Senator Brownlow's
speecn, ueiivereu a lew uays since in me
United States Senate in favor of the bill
for the relief of Mrs. Harmon, deserves a
passing tioticc at my hands. It is false in
its suggestions, and unjust to mo in its sup
pression of important and material facts,
as tho following brief statement will serve
to show :
In the fall of 1861, the Federal military
authorities then m Kentucky in antici
pation of an advance into East Tennessee,
commissioned two gentlemen and sent
them through the rebel lines with instruc
tions to organize detached forces of citizens
and destroy the bridges on the line of rail
road extending from Chattanooga to Bris
tol. In accordance with these instructions,
most of the principal bridges upon this line
of road were burnt on the night of, the 8th
of November, 1861. Mr. Harmon, in con
nection with his two sons and a half dozen
or more of his neighbors," assisted in burn
ing the bridge across Lick Creek, in Greene
county. . For this, he and they-were ar
rested and tried, not, as .Senator Brownlow
would have the country understand, by a
"dram-hcad" court-martial, but by a regu
lar military court, organized and sworn in
accordance with the rules and regulations
for the government - of the armies of the
Confederate States. He was furthermore
sued by the railroad company for $100,000
damages alleged to have.-been sustained
inconsequence of the destruction of its
bridges and the obstruction of its business,
which the Joss of its bridges occasioned.
In this exigency ho needed professional
assistance ; offered to employ "Haynes,
Baxter and Fleming" (of which firm I was
a member), and the late Montgomery
Thornburgh. Had I refused nnT services
under the circumstances, to a man whose
life and property, as well as the life of his
two Eons, were all at stake, I would have
disgraced, as I think, the learned and hon
oraole profession to which I belong.
I have never, in all my professional
career, failed, when requested, to go to the
relief of a titl7n thus imperiled. I did as
much and more for Senator Brownlow, for
which I have as jet received nothing but
periodical installments of malicious de
traction. : '. 4 - '
Hence, in connection with my partner,
Mr. Haynes (now of Memphis), and Mr.
Thornburgh, and upon Mr. Harmon-sown
nrgent cntroatUe, I undertook to defend
the civil suit that had been instituted
against hini by the railroad company for
100,000 damages, and to defend him and
his two eons before the tourt-martial. My
flret effort after being retained was to visit
Richmond, Va;, and endeavor to have his
and his eons' cases transferred from the
military to tho civil courts of the country.
It was during this visit that 1 procured the
passport under which Senator Brownlow
was ultimately ubie to pass tne lines to nnd
shelter and protection under the authority
of the Federal Government. -
This trip alone cost me more than $100,
no part of which has ever been returned
to me. But, failing In my effort of getting
a transfer of Harmon's case from the mili
tary to the civil courts, I entered vigorous
ly upon his defense. So did my partner.
Col. Haynes, and Mr. Thornburgh. The
parties were tried separately, each trial
consuming about one week. We were all
present every day; examined witnesses,
argued questions of law and evidence, and
concluded by an elaborately written argu
ment, which, though written by me, was
the joint product of all the counsel engaged
In the defense. But it was unavailing.
Harmon and hie two sons, and four of his
neighbors, were convicted and sentenced
to death, Of these, Haun, Harmon and
one son were executed ; three others and
one "of Harmon's sons were saved, and
saved by the active efforts of myself and
associate counsel. It is not true that young
Harmon died in prison, as alleged by Sena
tor Brownlow. He knew his statement
untrue when he made It.' Nor is it true
that he afterward died of a disease con
tracted while In prison, as is recited in the
preamble to the bill passed for the family's
relief. . The civil suit was finally abandon
ed by the railroad company. Such was
the character, extent and results of our la
bors. . . -
For this service, Harmon executed to
"Haynes,- Baxter & Fleming" a note for
$2,000, and to Mr.. Thornburgh a note for
1,000. To secure these, he gave a deed of
trust upon his real estate, worth then, and
now, not less than 515,000.
It-has suited the malic'eTof "Senator
Brownlow and others always to refer to
this deed in trust, executed to secure debts
to Col. Haynes, Mr. Fleming, Mr. Thorn
burgh and myself, as a mortgage to' John
Baxter, whereas it was as much for the
benefit of the other parties as for myself.
" I had no interest in the note executed to
Mr. Thornburgh. He was practicing alone,
and made the charge and accepted the note
for himself alone. Under the terms of
partnership between Col. Haynes, Mr.
Fleming and myself, Col. Haynes was en
itled to ?S00; Mr. Fleming $400, and I the
jalanee of the $2,000-note executed to us.
So, the reader will see that I was only en
titled to;$S00 out of the $3,000 secured by
the deed In trust in question. . This deed
was executed 10th December, 1561, and by
Its own proTUIorie, could have 4 been fore-.
lceil by Kile, fit . car oj ir.e rtgra cj rt-
dcmpHon, at the, request of anyone oj the
benetlciariee, after twenty day notice. To
prevent this and protect the f am Uy; i
bought In the interests of Mr. Thornburgh
and of my partners, Messrs. Haynes and
Eleming, paying them the full amount, of
their debts, with inttre&t vp to ihe time of
purchase, which was in the spring of 1861.
At at that time speculation was active.
Monev was, and has ever since, been going
at higli rates of interest in this city, nnd I
could, had I been disposed, have used it to
much greater advantage than to have per
mitted it to remain, as I did, with .Mfv
Harmon's family at. six per cent. Never
theless, I permitted it to remain there un
til the present time, never having received
one single cent of it. But for the interpo
sition of Senator 'Brownlow-and others,
who desired to prejudice me personally and
politically, there would have been no con
troversy between, Harmon's family and
mvself about It. , ' -
: But; by keeping Mers. Thornburgh,
Hdvnes and Fleming in the background,
and speaking of the deed In trust m a
"mortgage to John Baxter," and by hypo
critical demonstrations in favor of a "poor
ufidoivt1fnnd a persistent misrepresentation
of the facts, they - hoped to ; effect some
thing to my prejudice. Seeing this, I de
termined to defeat their . malice. -X could
have foreclosed the deed by sale through a
trustee, and without the interposition of a
court of chancery, closed it within twenty
days, bid off the 15,000 worth of land for
the debt, and retained it as my own. But
I chose to pursue a different course. On
April 30th, 1867, 1 filed a bill in the Chan
cery Court at Knoxvillc, charging the facts
herein stated, and voluntarily prayed that
the Court might investigate all the facts,
and in case the fees charged by Thornburgh
or by Haynes, Baxter & Fleming, were
excessive or obtained under undue influ
ences, to abate them. But, in the event an
abatement was made, to give me a decree
over against Thornburgivs .estate,, and
against Haynes and Fleming for the ex
cess paid to theni. To this bill, Mrs. Har-
mon ana an ner cnuaren, ana uoi. j. m.
Thornburgh, of this city, as the legal rep
resentative J of his father, and Messrs!
Haynes and Fleming were made parties
defendant. Mrs. Harmon was defended
by Hon. Horaco Maynard and by General
Trowbridge and Mr. Alfred -Caldwell.
Defendant lost nothing , for the want of
counsel. All tho defense that could be
made for them was made.- Testimony wa3
duly taken and the case heard by Chancel
lor Trtliple an appointeo and personal
and political friend of Senator Brownlow.
Accepting my proposal, and acting in con
formity with my request, he made a decree
referring the matter to the Clerk and Mas
ter, to hear proof and report whether the
fees charged were excessive or otherwise,
and in and by his decree, he especially di
rected the Master to examine Thos. A. R.
Nelson and J. W. Deaderick now on the
Supreme bench and J. R. Cocke and W.
P. Washburn, two prominent lawyers
practicing at the Jar, on . tho question
The Master did o, and, upon their testimony.-
reported that the fees charged were
juet and reasonable, and upon this report
not exeeptea to oy aejenaanw soncuors
ChAncllor Temple confirmed the report,
and made a decree foreclosing the deed in
trust. .
In pursuance of this decree the $15,000
worth of land was 6old in bar of the right of
redemption&nd purchased by me at $1,650,
and the tale duly reported and confirmed.
Thus, I became fully vested with an inde
feasible estate in fee simple to Faid land,
and have a decree to place me in posses
sion. But I would be false to my charac
ter, and the uniform tenor of my life, were
I to insist upon my strict legal rights. I
never intended to do more than to indem
nify myself out of this property ,and hence,
at the suggestion of Mrs. Harmon's coun
sel, I havo permitted the family to remain
in the possession and enjoyment of the
property, until, as was expected, Congress
lias made, as it should have done, an ap
propriation for their relief.
Tnc foregoing facts all appear of record
in the Chancery Court at Knoxville, and
were known to Senator Brownlow when
he delivered his speech. -
a .
Among others, his misrepresenta
tions are taken up, published, and editori
ally commended to its readers, by the
Press and BTerald of this city, of which the
Honorable John M. Fleming (as his own
paper habitually styles him) is an editor.
This is the same JohnM. Fleming to whom
I paid his part of said fee in 1862,and now,
after having had his share of the money in
his pocket for a period of nine years, it is
meet and proper that a paper of which he
is an editor, should lend its columns to
the perpetuation of Senator Brownlow's
slander, to speak of-the deed in trust, un
der which he has long since demanded and
received his interest as a "mortgage to Jno.
Baxter," and the collection of money paid
by me to him for tho benefit of Harmon's
family, as fraudulent, and the robbery of a
poor "widow and orphans." Such conduct
is too mean to be characterized, and of
course, precludes the idea that he will re
pair the injustice by the publication of any
explanation or apology. . '
Absence from the eity has prevented mv
replying sooner. Respectfully. :
Jno. Baxter.
The Protector, the new insurance paper,
records the following instances of largo
amounts of life-insurance taken by leading
New Yorkers : .'- Twenty-two of our lead

York offices for various sums from $100,000
to $300,000, showing an aggregate amount
of fcS,?30,000, or an average of over $187,000.
Cyrus W. Field, the distinguished pioneer

Drew has his life insured for several hun
dred thousand dollars. . Horace Greeley

York, recently deceased, had an insurance
on his life amounting to $125,000. Mr.
James Brown, -the millionaire banker,
head of the well known Amerioan and
English banking house of Brown Bros.,
is insured on hia life for $100,000.
