SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1S7S.
There are some bitter partisans
in Tennessee, who arc thoroughly
dishonest, bat who have enough
self-respect left to attempt to hide
their dishonesty, who urge repudia
tion of Tennessee bonds because, a3
they say, they were issued under
the "Ilrownlow regime." Of
course there is nothing in this but
low uemagogism and blarney. If
all they say about the " Brownlow
bonds " were true, their validity
has been recognized time and again
by Democratic Legislatures. If
they were issued illegally, why
didn't the partisan Democratic
Constitutional Convention pro
vide for their repudiation?
Why was their validity recognized
by the Legislature of 1SGS "Why
were they included in the operations
of the Funding bill of 1873 ? This
is no excuse, and when we hear
it offered as such we hardly know
whether most to admire the knavery
or the fooli?hne-s of him who offers
Again, suppose tbat what they
cliim is true. According to Gov.
1'orter, all the t; IJrownlow bonds "
now out amount to only a little
more than $3,000,000, or a little
more than twelve per cent, of the
whole. The creditors propose to
relinquish forty per cent,
of their claims which will
cover the amount of the
amount cf the "Brownlow bonds"
multiplied by three. So it will be
seen there is nothing whatever in
this. Deduct all these bonds, and
the State debt amounts to 21,000,
000 in round numbers. Deduct the
amount offered by the creditors of
the State, and the remainder is only
The truth is, when men make up
their minds to beeome knaves, they
generally succeed, and though they
may offer excuses and explanations,
thev are knaves still.
THE VICES OF THE DAY
A few days ago a number of cler
gymen and laymen met in the lec
ture room of the McKendre
Church, in Nashville, to take into
consideration 44 the vices of the
day how they shall be regulated
and suppressed." At the first
meeting there was some pretty sharp
shooting at large game. Rev. Dr.
A. J. BiirJ, the leading Cumber
land Trcsbyterian minister in tho
State, alluded, in an uncompli
mentary way, to ex-Gov. John C.
Brown, who, it will be remembered,
vetoed the Local Option Law passed
by the legislature. A good deal
was said at the time about the part
taken by Col. John C. Burch in
convincing Gov. Brown of
the unconstitutionality of that
bill. Dr. Baird revived that
talk and said some pointed
things, as reported by a cor
respondent of the Banner, Ilev
Dr. Elliott. This brought out a
card from Col. Burch, who denied
that he used any improper means to
convince the Governor or that he
received a big fee for his constitu
tional argument, to which the veto
was popularly attributed.
Last Thursday night another
meeting was held, and a committee
appointed for that purpose reported
a summary of the laws of Tennes
see regarding gaming and tippling.
This same coramitttee presented a
memorial to be presented to
the General Assembly, pray
ing for the limitation of drink
ing saloons, so that in the larger
cities, such as Memphis and Nash
ville, not more than ten or twelve
such houses should be licensed ;
that all such places should be closed
on the Sabbath day ; to guard against
evasion by providing for the proper
situation of such saloons at a dis
tance from places of amusement
and business, so that they may be
observed by the police and public,
and for a more stringent law on
gaming. In connection with this,
Local Option was discussed an I the
A variety of opinions was ex
pressed. We Mould rejoice to see
the time come when drunkenness is
suppressed, but the restriction of the
number of saloons to be kept in a
city does not occur "to us as being
calculated to do it. Men who want
whisky will get it, whether the num
ber of places where it is sold in a
city are restricted to tenor one hun
dred. It might result in suppressing
a few low dram shops, that are a
disgrace to any city or community
in which they may be situated. But
it would result in the establishment
of a monopoly, and would not, in
our opinion, remedy the evil com
plained of. To be effective the
remedies proposed must be practica
ble. The remedy here proposed
does not appear practicable and will
probably fail. The first thing to
be done is to get public opinion
right. That being done, it is an
easy thing to shape legislation.
By reference to a card published
elsewhere, it will be seen that Col.
John M. Fleming, of Knoxville,
and II. II. Ingersoll, Esq., late of
Greeneville, have entered into a law
partnership in this city. This in
volves the voluntary retirement of
Col. Fleming from the editorial
chair of the Knoxville Tribune, a
position he ha3 filled with uni
vcrsally conceded ability. His vale-
dictory will appear in the Tribune
of this morning. It is unnecessary
for us to say that during the past
ten years Col. Fleming has struck
us many journalistic blows, which
we have parried or returned
to the best of our ability.
But while we have been antagonis
tic in the various exciting conflicts
through which we have passed in that
somewhat eventful period, we note
his relinquishment of the editorial
chair with feelings of regret. Hi3
fame as a journalist extends
throughout the State and the coun
try, and nothing that we could say
would add anything to it. Our best
wishes for substantial success fol
low him to his new field of labor.
In that he is no novice. Before he
entered the field of journalism ho
was a successful and able lawyer,
with a large practice. His ability,
large acquaintance and skill as a
lawyer will bring him a large prac
Col. Fleming's partner, Mr.
II. II. Ingersoll, is one
of the best lawyers in the State.
He is industrious, studious, scholarly
and devoted to his profession. He
is yet a young man, in the prime
of life and can hardly fail to be
successful. It is a strong firm, and
the two gentlemen composing it
have our best wishes for their un

haa been adopted by Ihe Administra
tion. If a Department clerk does his
duty, it makes no dilTerenco if he was
recommended by Ben. Butler.
The difference between " Chivalry"
aud pure cutaedness," is very slight.

Senator Thurmaa having stated to a
Washington correspondent tbat he
still adheres to his fiuancial views, an
exchange pertiuentiy inquires,
"which set of financial views?"
The cheering declaration of several
Democratic Congressmen, who have
arrived in Washington, is made that
the coming session will be devoted to
busines rather than buncombe.

KNOXVILLE CHRONICLE FOR 1879.
Subscribe lor a Good, R3liable News
' 1'ho Daily Chronicle, and
Weekly Wiiio and Chronicle,
will be kept up during the year
1S79 to their usual high standard.
By enterprise, accurateness, and
close attention to the wants of our
readers, we hope to merit a contin
uation of the liberal patronage
heretofore extended these journals.
Nearly nine years ago, when
there was not a Republican daily in
the State, and only two or three in
the South, we commenced the pub
lication of the Chronicle. In all
these years we have battled for Re
publican principles, and see no
reason to change our course now.
Hence we shall continue to publish
a truthful, reliable Republican
journal, not the organ of any man
or clique, but the outspoken and
fearless advocate of principles,
measures and men, best calculated
to promote the welfare of the
country and the Republican party.
We shall make unceasing war
against all men who espouse the
cause of repudiation in Tennessee.
Against those who are willing to de
stroy their State for a little brief
authority, and who for office are
willing to hishonor and disgrace the
Commonwealth, we shall cry aloud
and spare not.
As a newspaper our publications
shall not be excelled in the State.
In addition to our telegraphic dis
patches from all parts of the world,
our readers shall have the benefit of
correspondence and every other
means through which reliable infor
mation is obtained.
Each number of the paper will
contain selections made with special
reference to the home circle. We
will continue to avoid everything
calculated to contaminate, and will
publish a paper that may be taken
without question within the sacred
precints of the family circle.
Our market reports shall have
close attention, and be made en
tirely correct and reliable.
Wc will endeavor to make our
agricultural columns worth more to
farmers than our subscription price.
Wc call upon all persons inter
ested in the publication of our in
dependent, fearless, reliable Repub
lican journal to come to our aid and
asist in extending the circulation
of the Daily Chronicle and
Weekly Whig and Chronicle.
In view of the financial pressure
upon the country and the gen
eral reduction of values, we have
decided to reduce the price of the
Weekly Whio and Chronicle to
suit the times. In the future we
will send our weekly paper to sub
scribers on the following
One copy one year $t 50
