B, TENNESSEE B0TLEE COKE TO TOWN We h um from Washington dispatches that our Butler has reached the cily where Radicalism has its headqnartnra He is somewhat disturbed in mind over the alleged frauds committed against the Pension Bureau. Instead of praying tor the rocks and mountains to hide him from the gaze of his honest countrymen he rails upon the House to protect him from arrest by an officer, of justice, who demands in the name of the law that he give satisfaction for crimes com' mitted. Butler would have anything else than justice meted out to him, for that is the very thing he don't want. If he is'jiot brought face to face with justice, then he may be joyous and happy, still enjoying the gains of his rascality. But how to keep out of the clutches of the law is a matter that has sometimes troubled our Congressman, for he was sent word if he ever came to Washington aguin he might expect trou ble from the aeent of the Bureau. lie thought, however, to run his luck, and if successful in getting rid of the charges of fraud thou pending against him, he miirht attain make a ((peculation in something 'c presenting itself to an ar aricious disposition that ever cries more. Butler has in his ingenuity struck upon a iAw expedient for thieves when they shall get into trouble, and is worthy of imitation by the rest of his confederates engaged in the selling-out business in Congress. He is trying to get the House to prevent his arrest until a committee of Congress can investigate the charges. Of course this committee is to be com posed of Radicals, who will "whitewaaL" Butler into a uymeutary appearance of looking like an honest man and a gen tleman. Something more, however, is required to change his heart into an honest one; and it may be il he was born over again his condition would hanllv be dissimilar from what it now is. The House was kind .ml in nonius cnoucli. during the lust session of Concrcss. to save him from expulsion for having accepted a bribe, because, as the Radicals said, the money was, or at least a part of it, ap propriated to the success of the party. And, it may be, that Butler has used a part of the funds stolen from the Pen sion Bureau to carry his election the last time; and, certainly, if the excuse is good in the one case.it must be in the other. We have fallen on strange times, when a man , found guilty of bribery and fraud can be permitted to occupy n pnt in the halls of national legislation as the representative of a peo ple claiming t be houcst.- Such an one as Butler can be regarded as a correct type of Radicalism in this country since the war. mid whatever of rascality is charged against him, he at ouee crys( " Copperhead," " Rebel," " Democracy,' and these tulismanic words, when ut tered, are sufficient to drive away any euspicions cf guilt.

The Miate ebt Inrnbuw. The Knoxvilie Press and Herald whose editor is an influential member of the present Oeneral Assembly, has Bn article in its Sunimy'a issue upon the absorbing subject of the Stute debt, and the various suggested solutions of the problem what she shall do with it. U he Herald says: The major part of the State's indebt edness, is that represented Dy ner oonas, issued in aid ot the various railroads, unnn which the State has a prior lien, until the amount advanced is fully dis charged. Those roads, instead of being a source of revenue, have been, and still r a continued source ot loss. With n view ot retiring as mucn oi this bonded debt as possible, the present Legislature, by an act passed January 20, 1870, allowed any railroad com pany which may be indebted to the State bv reason of bonds of the State loaned to sBid railroad company, to pay into i!m State treasury, in liquidation of the principal of said indebtedness, any of the legally issued six per cent, bonds of the Stute ot J ennessee outsiunaing.wiiu out reirard to series or number; and it further provided thut suen pay mont Khali, to the extent made, ne a iuii and perfect discharge of the lieu of the State, etc., whether tney oe me same bonds or of the sume series of bonds issued to said company under an act passed February 11, 1 852, and acts amen datory thereof, or not." Under the operation ot this luw, u was contemplated that solvent companies, indebted to the State, would avail them selves of the opportunity presented, and thus retire much ot tlie Donded oeni, Nor were the expectations of the Legis lature disappointed. Already the hunt Tennessee. iririmu and Oeorgia Com nnnv have paid oil their entire indeliled- npK to the State, amounting in all to $1,117,000, thus withdrawing or cancel ing the liability ot the Mate to mat ex- tt-ut. Other companies will, no uount, if not interfered with, avail themselves of the provisions of the sume act, and by this means, some eight to ten millions of bonds mav be withdrawn. The de crease of the State debt, under the act above cited, is t ie only appreciable re duction that it has yet been practicable to accomplish, or provide lor, under present legislation. tieu.
