Maroh 20. 1866 OUR STREETS HOW PAVED. Upon a survey of the whole ground of controversy, we believe the adoption of the " Nicholson" plan for paving is the best thing Memphis can do now, and perhaps for all time hereafter. Frop- erlv construcieu, asm ytvyvj - - - . . i " L. n I . mm .ft nan alter and teten care oi, wo ucno.c be made a very superior pavement. Appeal. We agree with our neighbor on this sub ject. The condition of our streets, wnen they take the form of mud or dust and they always take one or the other is neither a stunding nor a tmjtmg coiu nlimpnt to the administrators of our city affairs. This is not all. The' form of them we mean the face has the ap pearance of having been arranged by a volcanic eruution. in which indignant nature meant to illustrate to the sense of beauty, the extremist aspects which ugli ness and deformity can take. The peb- vi.. ...oiuil nnnn them at an ex- pense, from first to last, of more than a million dollars, have gone down, each one in its own way, and on its "own hook, and left the surface to be covered with anything that may happen to fall down a leaf or a dead mule. ine wnoie ming is a failure, and weds not see how any very sensible man can desire to have a repetition of it. To-night, we are informed, the Board of Aldermen will settle the matter defi nitely. Meanwhile, we desire to direct the attention of the public to a few facts. Memphis cannot disregard the accumu lated wisdom and experience of other cities. All theory goes down before practical tests; and the " boulders "have been tested, and found inefficient St. Louis, built npon limestone rock, has tried stone for seven years, and is now discarding it, and laying down eighteen streets, on the " Nicholson " plan. Chi cago is laying the Nicholson pavement Cincinnati and Detroit are doing the same. Toledo tried the boulder for six years, and is now laying down five miles of the Nicholson pavement Milwaukee and Nashville are adopting the same system. About some of these cities ma terial for stone pavement is convenient and inexhaustible ; and still they are taking it from their streets, and putting wood in its place. If that is the result of actual test, what impression ought it to produce on Memphis, where stone is not to be hnd, and wood abounds in the greatest abundance ? We do trust our Board will weigh these facts, and make , from them the only legitimate deduc-' tion of which they are susceptible that the Nicholson pavement is the cheapest and the best Properly laid down, it will lust fifteen years. We learn that parties are ready to take contract to furnish cedar for blocks, on remarkably cheap terms. White pine if durable, and so is cypress, but cedar would probably be best. A street Main street paved with cedar, would present an even, firm, compact surface from end to end. There would be no depression, for the Mrcrt wnuld be as one solid block. The following is the approved plan of laying down the Nicholson pavement : An excavation of thirteen inches is first made. Then a depth of five inches of and is laid smoothly and compactly. Upon this is placed a flooring of plank one inch and a quarter in thickness. This forms the foundation. Hot pitch is poured thoroughly over it, until the planking is rendered impervious to water. The wooden blocks, very much in the shape of bricks, are placed on their ends in the hot pitch, in lines extending across the street Between the lines or rows thus formed, stones are crushed down, after which boiling pitch is poured upon them. The whole is then water proof. Who would not like to see the city cov ered with such work ? Let the Board do themselves credit, and the city great good, by adopting the "Nicholson" at once. NEEDED PRECAUTION. The heavy robbery in New York, of Rrrrs I Loan, of two tin boxes conlain ine about one and a half million dollars of United States securities, serves to warn the public of the danger of holding large amounts of negotiable bonds and notei either in banks or private depositories. It is difficult to do anything in the way of leeal protection without restricting the free transfer anj sale of the necuri' ties and. thus tffectine far more evil than There should be. however, a vol s' antary rule adopted by every corporation, firm, or a private individual in the coun try that deals in this class of property. The rule should be absolute to buy no ,;.. fmrn a straneer at anj price or under any circumstances, and to record for identification the numbers of all bonds or notes thus handled. Then, if the Treasury Department will take the trouble to number the aecnritiea with preen ink on printed ground so that the figures could tot be changed, there would be a raonable aaguard against JmAirrPut lemntfttion to such roi .Denes Would cease.,; i V- , r r - . 1 .TO'yOEX' EATEBS. i ft,.

EAST TENNESSEE. The "Wxville Whig, of the 14tb, says : The desire on the part of East Tennessee to' separate from the other divisions of the State, is increasing very rapidly. The conduct of the rebels of Middle and West Tennessee, in their course,' toward Union men and, the Federal Government, ' is increasing the desire to be separated I rom them, and to have ' a loyal ' State organized here. Middle and West Ten nessee plunged the State into the rebel lion, and now they seek to control the State agiin. Ihe loyal men of bast Tennessee feel that they can never live in peace with them, and that separation is necessary.' ' They feel that Congress will be willing to set them apart, and that they ought to do so because of their loyalty. ' ' ' ": ' DD. The Cincinnati Commercial says of D. D. : " Colonel John W. Forkkt is figuring for a seat in the Senate of the United States. He proposes to succeed Mr. Cowak. His ambition to be a Sena tor of the United States has troubled him for a long time. It will be remembered that he proceeded to Harrisburg, once upon a time, with a letter from James BictiANAN, calling upon the Democratic members of the Legislature to send him to the Senate. But Sivw r.uronw I bought a few Democrats, and was elected, and Forkev becoming furious started the Philadelphia Frets. THE POPE'S ILLNESS : ' In a letter from Rome, published in the London Pall Hall Gazette, it is sta- ted that the Pone has had another bad turn durinir the last few dRVa. and the doctors have been somewhat uneasy about him... His immediate attendants ssy they observe signs of growiug feeble ness in him, that his memory is shaken, and that he yields more than formerly to violent predilections and antipathies. This is said to be especially noticeable in regard to the impressions 'of earlier years, which seem to be gradually coming back to him. NORTHERN TESTIMONY. A gentleman of the North, now visiting Virginia, writes from Richmond under date of the 6th instant, in which be in dignantly rebukes the efforts so industri ously made by incendiary letter-writers and hireling radical agents to mislead the people of the North by representing those of the Sonth as Still disloyal and hostile to the Federal Government Af ter freely mingling and conversing with all grades and classes, he declares his conscientious belief that there is not one man in a hundred who is not loyal to the Constitution and the Union. CANADIAN FORCES. In addition to the large militia force now under arms in Canada there are the following number of regular troops: At Quebec, 1750; at Montreal, 2250; at Chanbly, 200; at St Johns, 150; at To ronto, 900; at Kingston, 600; at Hamil ton, 750; at London, 750. Of these, prob ably 2500 are Irishmen, who are conse quently not very reliable. The 47th in fantry and ICtb rifies are mostly Irish, and during the Trent troubles manifested symptoms of disloyalty toward the Eng lish government ' MARRIAGE. The marriage law of Pennsylvania is undergoing a change. A simple agree ment between a couple, in the presence of witnesscss, has been held to be a legal marriage heretofore, but that sort of thing will be done away with and the services of a clergyman or magistrate will now be required. For marrying a pair, either of whom is intoxicated, 1500 fine and six months' imprisonment will be imposed. ROBBERY- The Meridian Mestenger relates a most audacious robbery committed on a plan tation near Enterprise, by a gang of horse thieves, who tied the two proprie tors, and carried off eight horses and mules, notwithstanding one of the men got loose aud rallied the freedmen, but the robbers fired apua them and dis persed them, wounding several.

BO" The editor of the Knoxville Whig has seen and conversed with several men of sense Bnd observation, who report that there is a fair prospect of a good wheat crop in East Tennessee. The celd snap of February injured wheat in some places, hnt nnon the whole, we nre promised a good crop.

The march of Sherman's army through the city of Washington, was perhaps the most imposing pageant ever witnessed in this countrr! A writer in the Philadel- Pma 1 res' " lur """ -n .v. rii: .:. Coloring : ever shall I forget the 24th of May, 1865, when the bronzed heroes of Sher man's immense column passed in con tinuous streams along rennsyivania avenue. The head of the line started from this verv Capitol building, led off by Tecumseh himself ' It was a bright and beautiful dny., How many of our millions who did not see that wondrous sinlit. lived to regret their loss, and to envy those who enjoyed it ! Previously, the Army of the Potomac, with its t'resh and bright uniforms, its splendidly equipped officers, and its apparent holiday array, marched in succesive tramp, tramp, tramp, each plateon as solid as a piece of animated ma chinery, drilled and disciplined and edu cated into a sort of inexorable regularity, as the whole mass swept by these mar ble halls. Then came Sherman's hosts hosts, indeed, they were. There were very few spangles and very little new ness, and nothing that savored of attempts at decoration : but they were awful in their order. V eleran was written all over their dark faces, browned by tj ardent Southern sun, and health al most spoke from their elastic steps and erect figures. Y ith thmr Kossuth hats stained uniforms and music, which, howev er cood, was so differentfrom thecity airs of the bands of the previous day, they seemed like riranger-jrom another plan et, recalling, with their tropical plants and animals, ana missy contrabands marching in regimental order, what we read in the delightful pages of Irving, of the men of Columbus who came back fr m strange islands and unknown climes with the beasts and birds and flowers they had collected. Winter Davis on th Status. Henry Winter Davis, ten doys before his lamented death, wrote io the Hon. J. M. Scovel, of New Jersey, as follows: Mt Dr a Sin : The case referred to T, I n IT j a r is LiUtuer vs. coraen, I xiowura, o. Rep 1. 1 did not say that the States were out of the Union in law by rebellion or in fact by the result of arms. On the con trary, I said that the State Governments ceased to exist in law by renouncing the Constitution and in fact by being expelled by arms. Note the diversity, the States are in the Union, or else we are not bound to gnarantee them republican governments. They have not republican governments; and that alone gives Congress the right to control the restoration underthe power to guarantee. Sumner is getting right on this point. Congress looks)rm ; but it mul be wise as well as firm. If we go before the people next fall on a negative issue, leaving Johnson's government in posses sion of the States, and simply refuse to admit them to Congress, we will inevi tably be beaten. Congress must annul Johriso'sgovernment,fonnally prescribe universal suffrage as the condition fine qua non of recognition, and propose to amend, the Constitution, making it the supreme law of the land for all States, and go to the country on these measures, or the people will accept Johnson's gov ern merit as a solution and send represen tatives to admit their representatives. Sincerely yours, 11. 'WiKTit Davis. Baltimore, Md , Dec. 21. 18C5. ( Damaging Report. The Freedruen's Bureca in South Car olina tells the following story of the state of things in that State : Official reports have been received by the Freedmen's Burean here ia regard to affairs in South Carolina They stale that a gang of rebtl outlaws, led by an ex-Confederate Major, are roaming through the Edgefield district, commit ting tho most fiem'inli outrages on Union men and negroes. 'The only United States forces in the district are nineteen men of the 25th Ohio' commanded by Lieutenant CHcKenstall. ine (l)stnct is one of the largest and most rebellious in the State, and the small lorce mentioned above is totally inadequate for the pro- tectiou ot the loyal whites and Ireedmen residing therein. Thus far, says the re port, the gang have murdered a number of nenroes aud one white man without provocation, and robbed and driven from their homes several Northern men who have property here. , Colqman, r the leader, is a desperate chSrnctrir. JJi h exhibited to several persons eight cars cut from tho heads ol colored men ; he f?fm.&tf: Sii: hut the rest ot the band is composed ol TexaI18 ond olbfirg rom differei)t Statf. The property holders say they regret the outrages, and, when called upon, have turned out to defend ' the property and ived of tho Northern settlers who have been threatened. It is the decided opinion of the Northern men stationed there that nothing will' restore the supremacy of the laws, and render the Jives ot Lnion men or Irceduien sate in that part of the country, but the hunting down and extermination ot these despe radoes by a respectcble force of cavalry, as ther are mounted in the best manner, and no doubt ure harbored mid kept wall posted by many ol the inhabitants. The Cotton Crop. A planter has devoted close attention and observation to the condition of the cotton crop and the prospect for the pre sent year, particularly in the States of iennessee, Alnbama and Mississippi, gives it as his opinion that not more than half an average crop need be ex pected. Considering the inefficiency of labor, and tlui increased expenditures in culture, cotton growing cannot be made profitable if Congress levies a tax of five cents on the pound, as is proposed. He says the influence of this proposition, which seems to meet with fuvor in Con gress, has already induced planters to abandon cotton growing, in whole or in part, and turn their attention to corn and meat and such articles as are needed for home consumption. He has hiinselfgiveii up cotton raising, although he rented a plantation last fall for that purpose, and prepared the ground with that object in view. He says it is the unanimous sen timent of his neighbors to curtail the cotton crop, not from hostility to the Government or disinclination to ' pay taxes, but because a five per cent tax, in addition to other expenses, will more than eat up the profits of the crop. In other words, the more cotton a planter raises, the worse off he will be. At the best, he says, no estimate of the value of the cotton product will approach accur acy that is based upon more than hnlf a crop Cin. Commercial. " ' ' ' The Fenian Uproar in Canada. The New York Sun says: The truth begins to lenk out concerning the Fenian hubbub in Canada. From hints thnt we begin to get from a certain cluss -of prov incial journals, taken in connection with concurrent circumstances, we nre led to believe that the whole uproar is the re sult of a shrewd political trick on the part of the Confederationists. The Cana dians have been for several years fighting among themselves about the character of their Government. One party are strongly in favor of confederating1 the Canadns, New Brunswick, Newfound land, Nova Scotia and other adjacent provinces, in one Government ; while another party are in favor of leaving things substantially as they are. Lately a strong feeling has grown up in Canada favorable to the annexation of that country to the United States a policy which is bitterly opposed by the Confed erationists. It now begins to crop out that the Confederation party, seeing the hopes of their scheme rapidly waning, conceived this idea of getting up the Fenian furore, with the design of im pressing upon the people the importance of uniting the provinces as a measure of self protection, nnd so also of stifling the annexation spirit by working an ill feel ing against the United States for not quclcbing the terrible Fenians. The Cotton Stealers. ' Mobile Reqixttr is gratified by The Henry AYard Beecher'a recent seal lung denunciation of cotton-stealing Trea-iury agents. The Begifter says: Just imagine a man sitting in his office in Mobile or New Orleans, and after all the so-called Government cotton bad been fairly collected, dispatching his spies to every nook and corner of the interior, to nose ont iiraginary Government cotton, bis olfactorias stimulated by a contract to allow him one-fourth of the game be should bag. Backed by military power at least so the unhappy cotton owners feel and believe these spies go out with the power as well as the spirit of piratical cruisers. With a roving commission, they are not over nice in their requirement of evidence. , A word of suspicion, a breath from an enemy, is enough to induce a seizure of any man's cotton, and the best and largest lots are in the greatest danger. Once seized, the planter never gets a relesse except nt the expense of a fonrth or a half lie is fortunate if he does not lose the hole. Nobody believes that the Gov ernment derives a dollar of the profit from ihe transaction. ; Senator Sherman and the President. The New York Tribune' t Washington correspondence contains the following: "Senator Sherman is reported to have had an interview of more than an hour's duration to-day, with the President, and found him in a more tractable mood than hitherto. The Senator assured him there was no justifiable cause for an abandon ment of the principles npon which the Kenublican partv carried the Presiden tial election. Nor could be afford to est loose from the men who were first and foremost in souring the success of that party. The conversation is said to have Keen unite unreserved and comprehen ive. and in reply the President insisted that he had no wish or purpose to invoke anv issue or estrangement among his krrmbliean friends and supporters. H admitted that he owed his present eleva tion to the mea of . that party, and that while in some matters he raiiiit dinar in opinion with them, he did not purpose to Sft op his individual opinion against their combined wisdom or desirea. In rt-eard to the Copperhead flattering and fawning, which had so annoyed his Re publican friends, he said he had been in political life too long to be deceived by them. r r O'aTahoney's Plan. The New York Citizen exposes the nlana of the Fenian leaders. Ye make the following extract, more for the fun than fo' the information it affords : "The project of invading Ireland by means of a tunnel starting from Coney Island, and to emerge somewhere in the city of Dul.iin, not far from toe lxrl Lieutenant's castle, ia now touch dis cussed tv the best engineering minds in the Fenian ranks.
