STATE FINANCES DISCUSSED,
THE TENNESSEE TAMMAXT.
fO wing to the lateness of the hour when
Senator Gibson concluded his speech at
the court house night before last, and in
order to give our readers an accurate ab
stract of the Senator's masterly enort, we
have delayed publishing his speech until
this morning. ' .

Having, while in the State Senate, learned
manv facts which my friends thought the
people ought to know, at their suggestion
1 am here to-hight.
TENNESSEE WHEN THE WAR EN'DEDT
Let us. for a moment, turn our face to
the past. What was the condition of Ten
nessee when the war ended? No Governor,
no District Attorneys, no law. The fa
bric of government had been thrown down
and lay ruined and scattered in the .dust,
while grim anarchy staiKea supreme
through the land. We had no money in
our countv treasuries: no money m our
State Treasury, business was prostrate, oui
railroads torn up and demolished by the
iron hands of war.
WHAT THE REPUBLICANS HAD TO DO.
Amid this general ruin the Republican
party took possession of the State ; and in
a few vcars. as if by magic, tne iaoric or
government was made new, the temples of
justice rebuilt.the public treasuries repien
iKhfd tho railroads reconstructed, business
revived, and law and order, peace and har

But the Political Satan entered this Para
dise. Andrew Johnson divided the Re
publican party, and begat Conservatism in
Tennessee. ..Then arose discord and violent
discussion. The Democracy took hope,
and the Democratic press opened its bat
teries on Browulow and his party, keep
ing up a ceaseless bombardment of slander,
abuse, villihcation, misrepresentation and
falsehood. The very air was thick with
their sulphurous volleys, and every man's
ears, deafened with their satanic hullaba
loo. DEMOCRATIC CHARGES.
.'; rThe Republicans were called "proscrip-
tive." . It was charged that they kept open
the wounds of the war. They were called
"Bond Thieves" and "Railroad Ringers."
Their denial of the right of voting to "rebels
was calleduncoustitutionaland tyrannical.
The Republican office holders were repre
sented as growing ricn at tne expense oi
the tax-payers. The school law was de
nounced as onlv devised to swarm the
land with county superintendents. And
the management of the penitentiary was
denounced as criminal. . . . .
THE S ENTER MOVEMENT. .
Just then Gov'. Senter came out in favor
of . universal suffrage. The Republican
party was once agaia divided, and the
people, tired or tne miernai political uin,
and longing for political quiet, allowed the
Democrats to take possession of the State
aud they have been in possession ever
HOW THE DEMOCRATS HAVE KEIT THEIR
I will now proceed to show you how
these Democrats have kept their promises.
They said we were " too prescriptive,"
that we kept up the " war issues," and
prevented "peace and reconciliation."
But when they got into power, did they
lay aside the "war issues?" Ah, no,!
They called a Constitutional" Convention,
composed almost exclusively of rebel offi
cers. They turned every Union man out
of office, and put rebel soldiers in their
places. And to-day an oi me principal
officers of our State Government are grad
uates of Jeff. Davis' army. They repealed
all the Union laws They gerrymandered
the State so as to keep any Republican
from being elected to the Legislature.
Senator DuBose, their leader in the Legis
lature, said in the Senate: "In redisrict
ing the State no member of the Radical
party was . consulted. Our main object
was so to redistrict the State that for the
next ten years not a Republican could be
elected to the Legislature of Tennessee. I
believe in the law or revenge. The Kadi-
cals disfranchised us, and now we intend
to disfranchise them." ..
The Democrats re-districted the State
Congressionally, in order to prevent any
Union man being elected. They wholly
disregarded the' wishes of the people of
East Tennessee. -"To keep Radicals out of
office is doing God service", they said.
And so, gentlemen, you see how these
Democrats "clasp hands across the bloody
chasm" when they get into power. .
SQUANDERING THE PEOPLE'S MONEY.
Now let us examine their second charge,
that we squandered the people's monej7.
This is a matter of figures. "Figures don't
lie," and they will show who has squan
dered the people's money. .

trial, the registration of voters, the Claim!

year3 of Republican rule, the Republicans, with
a lighter tax, paid over $4,250,000 on the State
debt. But although the Democrats taxed vou
so much higher last yeartheyhave not only not
Pid out of this tax one cent on the State debt;
they have not only flooded tho State with Over
$700,000 in State warrants, as appears by the
Treasurers report, out nave actually borrowed
hundreds of thousands of dollars besides to run
the machinery- of the Government IP' While
the Republicans were in power, you had State
free schools in every neighborhood ; but, eince
the Democrats have been our rulers, State free
schools have ceased to exist, and our children
are errowincr up m itrnorance. Indeed the mot

And now what is tho condition of your
credit ? The Stato's warrants aro low down in
the market and no buyers. The honest creditors
of the State present their accounts at the Treas
ury and are told tho State has no money. Our
Judges can't even get their salaries. Our
sheriffs, clerks, jailors and State's witnesses aro
forced to sell their State claims for a few cents
on the dollar. There is no State school in all
this land. No interest has been paid on the
State debt since the Democrats eot into, power.

revenue collectors are wringing our money from
us and sending it to Nashville, and still the
State has to borrow money to prevent going to
niece.?; : And -what is more alarminsr. while
the revenue was promptly" collected and paid
over to the State while Republicans' were rev
enue collectors. Col. Pennebakor's report shows
that these Democratic revenue collectors owe
the State over txco million dollars.
You all recollect how tho Republicans were
abused for increasing the salaries of some offi
cers. But. srentlemen. these Democrats have not
only not reduced the salary of a single officer,
but have actually created more officers to draw
these very salaries. The cost of public printing
has wonderfully increased. I proved to the
world.whilo at Nashville that the Public Prin
ters had defrauded the State outof thousands of
dollars. Bat the Democrats considered stealing
a recommendation to office, and these very Pub
lic Printers were re-elected. The speaker hero
exhibited tho "sponi
Journals as nronosod to be printed by laui,
White & Co.-, candidates lor 1'uDiic rnnters.j
What does this "specimen page" show ? Who
are "Paul, White & Co?" Good Democrats,
all. This "specimen page" show3 and says
that the present Public Printers cause
"a loss, .to ,, tho. -State, . ..arising
from a disregard ofr the requirements of the
Code, ofabout200per cent.; and the loss does
not Etop here, but enters into tho cost of paper
and press-work, each of which items it increas
es in about tho same proportion." And thus
you will sco that by the testimony of Democrats
tncmselvcs, tnese rumic-l'rinters cnargeme
State three times more than tho law authorizes.
No wonder tho Public Printing since Gover
nor Brown was elected has cost the State over
$80,000. The amount paid the J udges has also
swelled up to over $100,000. The costs of State
Prosecutions amount to over $150,000 a year.
The last year of ltepublican rule, Stato Prose
cutions cost only $135,000. So you Bee these
Democrats either did not bring peace with them
and good order, or did not bring honesty, or,
what is probably nearer the truth, did not bring

These instructions were followed, but during
their absence he went into the cupboard and

termilk. He was immediately taken with a re
lapse and shortly afterwards died, having suf
fered a great deal during his last hours. m
Bowles' mother intended to Dury mm at
Sweetwater, notwithstanding Thos. G. Boyd
desired that he should bo taken to Eleazar

Whether Boyd had any design in this is not
for us to sav. but if tbe whole affair was mapped

they failed in their object tor, . ;
The beet laid plans of mice and men oft gang aglee."
A number of buttons were found in the ashes
where tho corpse was burned,,. and on being
asked what kind of buttons were on her hus
band's nantaloons. Mr.. Boyd describod them,
saying some had patent fastenings, while others
were the ordinary kind.? '-v;'
From this it is supposed that a pair of hi old
tant3 were burnedln order to mako the descrip
tion of the buttons play the part in substantiat
ing the dread catastrophe, in this anair is re-
years beioro tne warm uammon county, in

which a lorracr member oi tno iiegisiature, who
was also a claim agent, sustained the role that
Boyd now does, as is known to many citizens of
the residence of Powell Williams, who lives on
Connesauga Creek, and from recent develop
ments that gentleman is now of the opinion, we
are told, that these nieht riders were Boyd and
two of his friends. This is further substantiated
bv the fact that tho horso ridden by Boyd, a
very fleet animal belonging to Mr. Heiskell,
was found running loose near Monse Creek by
Mr. Lowery with the bridle off and reeking
with sweat Not alone, but
" "With unabated zeal
That horseman plied the scourge and steel, -,

Embossed with foam and dark with soil.
While every gasp with sobs he drew,
Tbe laboring steed strained full in view"
of his companions, perhaps, but of no others as
yet known, though if future developments are
as prolific of result as in the pa?t it is not im
possible.' ' ' ' .
AMOUNT OF THE FRAUDS.
The amount of money involved in tho frauds
perpetrated by Boyd against the Government
exceed $100,000, extending over a term of years.
Some of them are of tho most barefaced charac
ter and succeeded from their very boldness. As
an instance wo will - mention the caso of
Samuel Elliott whom Boyd represented as a
member of Bryson's independent command,
killed in a skirmish on Cocoa Creek during tho
war, in behalf of whose orphan (?) children, six
injnumber, he collected over $2. 100 in pensions,
back pay and bounty. 'On Monday Elliott
walked into the pension oifice in this city and was
astonished to hear of his death. So far from
being dead he had never run tho risk of being
killed in battle, having never been in the army.
Tha caso of Mrs. Elizabeth Choate, whoso hus
band wa3 killed at Cumberland Gap, and who
wa3 defrauded by Boyd of pay. and bounty ob
tained, the correspondence of which. , was con
ducted on her part by a well known gentleman
of this city, is another. We could prolong the
list indefinitely, but forbear. His last attempt,
not two weeks ago came neaa being successful,
and the payment of the claim was only stopped
by the vigilance of Col. Whitney and Judge
Andrews, the District Attorney.
'' i THE INSURANCE DODGE. '
Our readers remember the mysterious death
of Capt Colvocoresses, at Bridgeport Connec
ticut, a short time ago, whose life was so heavily
insured. Some peoplo in this vicinity think
it was excellent for Boyd to die, when be could
save his relatives the disgrace that might arise
from his serving a terrain tho penitentiary, save
his securities tho sum of $40,000; and give his
family tho benefit of several life insurance poli
cies amounting to 520,000. -
