MEMPHIS. TENNESSEK. THURSDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 10.
Our National Finanoas.
In the course of an address delivered
before an immense meeting of Democrats
'in Ohio recently,1 the Hon. Daniel W,
Voorhies said :
You have a mighty financial question
before you. I do not pretend to be the
greatest financier in the country ; I make
no professions upon that subject at all.
But there are certain great, bold, plain
facts that yon and I can talk about here
to day, in plainness and simplicity, as we
would around the fireside. During the
wor we became deeply indnbted. The
public debt now amounts to about f 2,C00,
000,000. A large portion of it, noBrly
2,0()0,000,000, is in what I may call the
people's promissory notes. 1'hey are
generally Known as Government bonds.
What is a Government hond ? It is a
paper issued by the Government, by your
representatives, in behalf of you, the
people, upon your credit and your credit
alone, and is your note, made, executed
and signed by your agents at Washing
ton, to pay so much mouey in a certain
length of time. You have nearly $2,000,
000,000 of these notes out, that somo day
or other and in some woy or other you or
your posterity will have to pay. Gentle
men of Ohio, men of Morgan county,
you are in debt Your farms are all
morlgaged, every foot and acre that
you own, is mortgaged .to pay your
notes that are out They are culled
bonds, but they are simply your promises
to pay. They are in the hands of a certain
class of men. They bear heavy interest
Twice a year tho tax-gatherer comes to
collect from you; yea, be is about you
every day. You pay taxes in every form.
The tax-gatherer is invisible; he is
about you all the time. You pny taxes
on these bonds while you eat, and while
you wear out your clothes; even while
you sleep you are paying taxes on this
mighty debt Remember tho tax you
are paying now does not, reduce the
principle, it only pays the iuterest You
will say at once, "That is an appalling
spectacle for us and for our children
after us to look upon." Two thousand
six hundred millions of dollars is an
immense sum of money, amounting,
according to an estimate I saw the other
doy, to a large sum for each voter, and
then for each man, woman and child in
the United States I will not go into
these minutiic. You will esk me how
these men received your nuti-s. When
your currency was deranged, and, in
order to induco the people to purchase
these notes, a law was passed by which
they should pay no taxes upon the gov
ernment bonds that they held. The do
ranged state of the currency enabled
them to buy these bonds at rates of from
forty to sixty cents on the dollar. If to
day the people should repudiate the
entire public debt which I am not for,
but opposed to the bondholders, by tho
interest, thy bavo already received,
would be paid nearly, if not quite, all
that the bonds originally cost them.
Tho remedy proposed by Mr. Voorhees
was that the bondholders Bhould pay
taxes upon their bonds.
If they will not submit to taxation,
what then am I for? I am then for
what all nations have hud to do before,
that is, to reduce the rate of interest.
Our debt bears an average mleiest now
of six per cent I am for reducing it to
three per cent, if no further. Ono half
of your interest shall go, you bondhold
ers, if you won't pay taxes. If you
won't pay taxes, we won't pay interest.
We will send you only half of what you
send for instead of all of it. What do
you think of that, then ? That is a way
of lessening'this burden just ono -half.
If they won't submit to that and keep
the power, there comes another method
by which this thing can be done. Let ns
commence paying their bonds as tney
fall due, in the samo kind of money that
they make you take lor whatever you
own in this world.
A Rotable Case.
The Sunerior Court, in session nt
Worcester, has just tried, for the second
time, a somewhat exceptional case, with
features which make it worth noting
hrielly in this correspondence. The
plaintiff, on his way to a cBmp meeting
at Martha's Vineyard, took passage on a
steamboat running thither from New
Bedford, and crowded with an excursion
nartT of a thousand or more. As ho
atnnd on the deck, a small life boat, sus
pended over his head, became detached
from its fastenings, several passengers
having steDDed into it, and, making too
heavy a load for the suspending boat,
the plaintiff was struck with a blow
which has ruined his health, rendered
him incapable of labor, and will proba
bly ultimately send him to an insane
asylum. The steamboat company were
sued, in the inland county where the
plaintiff lived, lor damages, nnci a. ver
dict of niue thousand odd dollars (the
sum claimed being fifteen thousand dol
lars) was rendered some time ago. This
verdict being set aside for various causes,
bv Chief Justice Allen, just before biB
retirement, a second trial look place last
week, and the defendants, nnturniiy
alarmed at the magnitude of the first
verdict for the capital of the com
pany is only thirty thousand dollars-
made a desperate etlort to reverse tne
result Er-Governor Andrew was en
gaged as the most eminent and able
counsel to be bad, and bis plea, which I
was so fortunate as to bear, was most
. ,i j
ingenions and eloquent, i ue ground
taken, of course, was that the accident,
caused, as it was, by the conduct of pas
sengers getting into a place where they
had no business to be, was one of those
occurrences which no human foresight
can prevent, and for the results of which
the corporation on whose deck it occur
red could not proper! v be held liable.
Mr. Aldrich, of Wcroeater, argued the
case, as belore, vx me piainini, anu pui
bis caaa with a great deal ct skin and
pwer. 1 ne jury, to me asionnuiurni. m
everybody, the case being gi-nerally re
garded as at least doubtful, were out
only fifteen minutes, and brought in a
erdict of ten thousand ingm niinureu
d, liars for tho plaintiff a considerably
larger amount than hafore. The ten
dency of juries to hold passcng"r car
riers responsible in the airiutest sense ot
he word for the sufe'y ot the lile anu
limb intrustej to them was never more
strikingly manifest The case goes up
on exceptions for the ruling i f a higher
court on questions of law; and the dam
ages, when paid, will be more likely to

Paul RirleT. who claimi to have been

columns as the man who has been trying
to get Jeff. Davis pardoned. It it known
that ho did not succeed. The dutails ol
his attempt are given by him in a long
letter to the Montreal Gazette. He says
he waited on President Johnson and
asked him to pardon Davis, as the latter
could aot make iaeh an application for
himself on account of the proclamation
which stands out against him, charging
bim with being implicated in the assas
sination. He has, however, been indicted
for treason, which wae the greatest of
fense known to our laws, Bagley then
read a long letter to the President en
treating him to withdraw bis proclama
tion, lie begged tho President to heal
the hatred existing between the different
sections of the country.
The Presidont answered: "There is
no hatred to tho Government on the part
of the people of the South; it's all at
the other end, they won't let thera como
in." Bagley then went on to show that
there was a good deal of bad feeling;
that he was refused a boarding place at
tho Hiram (Ohio) Theological Seminary
because of bis interest in Davis ; that at
the Bethany College commencement he
in vuin implored Gen. Garfield to " hold
out some olive branch of hope" to Davis;
that he was equally unsuccessful in get
ting Judge Holt to do the same thing;
that Judge Underwood told him that he
had done enough for Davis, and had
better give up his efforts. Mr. Bagley
also said that he bad been obliged to
sleep out of dfiors for want of money ;
that he bnd always been a Union man,
etc. The President finally gave him
five dollars, and promised to look oyer
his papers, but declined to commit him
self in regard to his future action in the
case.
Just beforo leaving, Bagley read the
following doggerel acrostic to the Presi
dent, which he had composed while wait
ing iu his ante-room. It contains about
as much truth as poetry :
ACEOSTIO aSDBSW JOHH30X. v
A man misunderstood and much maligned,
Nor will the people nndorstand bis mind ;
Deaf to all claims cf morcy, thev refuse,
Repentance ui.lo those whom thoy abuse: -Expect

Would make fair Dixio I -nd a desert void.
Jobnton would hoal the wpund that war has

On him of (Jod such dutynow is laid;
11 is hand is stretched toward the bleeding South
Nrgleoting not his duty to the North ;
rilavos enfranchised upon bim may depend,
O'er all tho land ho looks all to defend :
Nor should our Presidont so slandered be,
tlf you'll receive the truth from yours, P. B )
For this remarkable production tho
author was duly thanked.
A Conscientious Foreman.
A funny story is told by a correspond
ent of a Western paper of the first col
ored jury, impanneled under the recent
military order in Texas. It appears
that, by a municipal regulation, justices
of the peaco have jurisdiction over of
fenses of certain grades, with power to
impannol a jury of six, and try the case
in regular and ample form. An offense
having been committed by a colored cit
izen, lie was arrested and brought beforo
such a jury, composed chiefly of negroes
from the cotton fields in tho district, who
were duly sworn, and one of the number
appointed foreman. After hearing the
evidence and nleadings of counsel, the
jury were charged by the justice that
their duty was " to una a veruict, a-iu
when they had found it, to return it into
court," and thereupon they retired to de
liberate. Iu about on hour the foreman,
whose name was Sum, returned at the
head of his mates, and the panel being
called, rose end spoke to this efioct:
"Seo here. Mr. Court, we'sbeon down
to dat are room, and we bunts in evry
crack, in evry cornor, up the chimney
and under do floor, and cau't find any
thing that looks like wordick."
The iudtro then gravely proceeded to
explain to the jurors the nature of a
verdict, and having apparently suc
ceeded in enlightening thoir minds, sent
thera back once more to deliberate. Iu
another half hour they again made their
appearance, and " Sam," with every
symptom of honest indignation, inquired
thus of his honor:
" Look a here, Mr. Court, didn't you
'point me foreman of this jury?" "Yes,
sir, I did." "Dat'a what 1 told dese
fools, but doy didn't got sense enough to
know it. I tells 'em what and how dis
case is and dey won't do as I lolls 'um.
Ain't dey bound to do what I say, Mr.
Court?"
The upshot of the matter was that the
judge finally sent the counsel out with
the jury to help them make up a verdict,
and then a suitable one was rendered.
But the blucks are learning rapidly -
A Jury of One Man.
Joe II is one of the characters in
Lafnyelte township. Recently he was
summoned to act ns a juryman io a case
being tried before ' a magistrate. He
proposed to the parties to the suit that
tbey allow him alone to act as the jury
and decide the case. They agreed, the
evidence was heard, and Joe retired to
make up his verdict. He soon proenred
a bottle of whisky, some crackers, a box
of sardines, and n can of cve oysters
from the defendant in tho suit He
helped himself to as much as he wanted
of the provisions and liquor, and quietly
laid down in the room in which he was
locked and took a nap. He awoke to
ward evening, and reported that the
"jury have not agreed upon a verdict,"
and sent the constable after the plaintiff,
demanded more oysters, crackers, sar
dines, and whisky. With these he spent
the night, and had a good supply over

A Career for tha Gorilla.

view of the most recent and distinguished
addition to New York society, sketches

Thus'
A consideration of his probable future
career under such changed and inspiring
circumstances, must surely give pleasure
to every uoble or generous mind. We
may truce him in fancy, accumulating a
little fortune by the judicious manage
raent of a corner grocery. He rises, step
by step, through a careful study of the
principles of caucuses, and a sedulous
attendance at ward meetings, to the po
sition of a common councilman. alch
ing bis cbauces, and aided by a fe
licitous investment in a share in
faro-bank, or a lucky partnership in
a lottery office, he ascends, by steady
Drogresa. to the dignity ot Alder
man. Skilled now in the politician's
art, and tilled with an enthusiastic love
for the people, he jobs some market
some street railway, or some other pa
triotiu enterprise, and suddenly appears
nt the opera or in tbe park as a million

fine linen, sumptuous in the costliness
and beauty of bis equipage. In time

Mr. Greeley on Female Suffrage.
Mr. Horace Greeley, who, though
generally supposed a friend of woman
suffrage, recently brought forward
report adverse to the adoption of that
measure in the constitutional convention
of New York, has written a letter to a
friend in England on the subject, from
which the following is an extract:
The key-note of my political creed is
tho axiom that " governments derive
their just powers from the consent of the
governed." I hold that this consent may
be, and often is, tacitly given, but that
it is none the less conclusive on the
account I sought information from
different quarters on the main points,
and all practically agreed in the con
elusion that the women of our State do
not choose to vote. Individuals do ; at
least three-fourths of that sex do not.
I accepted this choice as decisive, just
as I reported in lavor ot enlran
chising the blacks, because they do
wish to vote. The few may not, but the
many do; and I think they Bhould contro
tho decision. We shall have very hard
work to ratily any constitution that cu
franchises the blacks. Had we exlendod
the suffrage to women we should have
been voted down by hundreds of thou
sands. It seems but fair to add that
female suffrage seemAo me to involve
the overthrow of the family relation as it
has hitherto existed. If the time shall
ever come when Mr. Biggs shall be an
aotivo member of the Democratic, and
Mrs. Biggi of the Republican county
committee, in one of our excited politi
cal contests, I suspect that it will soon
take two houses to hold them.
New Discoverios at Pompeii.
Senator Fiarelli's workmen are con
stnntly uoearthing new treasures at
Pompeii. Ono of the most recent is
strong box. It was evidently covered
with thin plates of iron. The front is
ornamented with bronze bas reliefs
which are almost uninjured. There are
a man's bead, from its grotesqueness sup
posed to be a mank, two busts ot women
two genii, and the hend of adog. Around
thesti in a eire'e of ivy leaves.
All are finely and carefully engraved.
The nenii are thought by some who have
seen tin in to equal Liberty's heads of
angels on the famous bronze doors of the
Baptistery of Florence. The dog and the
ivy of course symbolize vigilanco and
fidelity. The busts are thought to be
family portraits. Tuo bouse in which
tho box wns found is south of the city on
the Castillamare side.
In the same quarter a decaj'ed wooden
box yielded a specimen of tbe gold bullas.
worn by the children ot rich families
It opens, and has a little hollow place in
the center. On it is a buckle in filagree
work, through this passed tho ribbon by
which it hung from the child's neck.
Five gold rings were found, a very mod
em looking breastpin, a broken bracelet,
ear rings of an entirely new pattern,
emeralds, stones engraved but not
mouuted, silver spoons of different sizes,
and a large amethyst of great value, on
which are two figures, which are believed
to be Apollo and Cupid.
It is supposed that this bouse, so pro
lific of jewels, was the shop of a lupidury.
J6f The Louisville Courier, of Mon
day, says :
Our city was treated to an extra sen
sation Saturday afternoon. The evening
paper published a rumor of Brownlow's
death, and the newsboys were flying
through town, proclaiming the awful ti
dings at the lop of their voices. Papers
sold like hot cakes, aud no doubt the
newsboys would be glad if somebody
would kill the old cuss every day. ,
It was amusing to see with what for
titude our citizpns received th mournful
intelligence. They did not exhibit any
outward signs of the pangs which were
rending their souls, bat their grief was
inward and silent, and of theexcrutiating
type, which requires numerous and fre
quent drinks.
Brownlow should have been here Sat
urday. A Mexican Liberal Heroin.
The war that has just come to an end
in Mexico had its heroines like most
other wars of its kind. None of them,
however, was so well known as Ignaeia
Hichy, a native of Jaliseo and daughter
of Spanish parents. She entered the
ranks of the liberal army when the
Fi.'neh invaded the country. She per
formed many prodigies of valor, and
became an aid on the staff of General
Arta;a, wbo was e xeeated hv Mender,
at Uruapan, i" October, lStij, and
became a prisoner with bim. When
Arteaga and his companions were shot
she refused to be pressnt at the execu
tion, and blew out her own brains with a
pistol in prison sooner than remain
prisoner in tbe bands of tbe Imperialist.
