Every citizen must blush for shame with the knowl edge that such a row ha occurred and the fact gone forth to the world. The stump of public condemnation should be put on such proceedings in a manner to prevent their recurrence, and to learn men that they are elected to office to serve the people, and not to practice the a,rt of McCoole and Allen in cham bers where laws are to be made. We do not know, or cure to know, who was most to blame, and should not take sides if we did. Had a stranger stumbled in about the time that crowd was trying to 'stumble out,' he would have supposed that a very different institution had overpowered the keepers and broken out. Let us hope that the active par ticipants will hereafter settle their per sonal difficulties in a private place, and when iu public assume some of the dig nil supposed to attach to tlieir official positions. THE 8UP2HE COUET. A series of articles over the nome de vlumt " Reform," attacking the Supreme Court of the State, recently appeared in the Avalanche, and the positions assum ed have been backed up editorially in that paper. "Reform" intimates that ! liaa Dracticed before the Supreme Court, that he was engaged iu the Cous ins' case, and has not always been able to secure decisions to suit his clients. Perhaps he has been on the wrong side, and took desperate chances too olten. If this is so he should blame his clients for not having the law and evidence on l,oir oi.lP! and even if this is not the fact we question the propriety and the good taste of counsel attacking a court through the columns of the daily news papers, when he knows that the members of the court cannot, with dignity and eelfrespect, reply through the same -channel. "Reform" makes out an ex parte case, and puts it before the world, knowing, that as far as the court is con cerned, hiB charges must remain unan swered. As to the legal questions in volved, it would certainly have been more professional in "Reform" to have submitted bis effusions of rhetoric, ridi cule and satire to th editor of a law journal. But a tender respect for the heaving bosom of the legal waste basket and an evident desire to reach the ear of classes who do not read law journals, doubtless weighed in favor of the daily political press. The charges set afloat have been caught up eagerly by the' Knoxville Chron icle and papers of thit class, and the echo has even been taken up by the Cincinnati Commercial and hurled back with increased force at the Supreme Court. The manifest injustice Bnd un fairness of all this has at length caused the press of the State, to some extent, and members of th bar who have a liroper respect for the judicial ermine, specially when worn by able fcod re spected men, to make a rejoinder to counteract the ery injurious impres sions which have been made among the uninformed. The Union and American of the !Hh instant has an article at length in its editorial columns on the nabject. We present some extracts of interest to the legal fraternity and the people: So long an the criticisms of the Su preme"Court of Tennessee continued to be respectful, and so long as they con tinued to be confine.! to the limits of the .State, it was Dot deemed necessary to the vindication of juitice, to the truth of impartial history, or the character of the high tribunal in question, to meet those riticim8 otherwise than by silence. It was felt that ihe memtxrs of the profession, the suitors whose causes had l.-n were beine. and were to be decided by that tribunal, and the people of the State in general, possessed, within their own knowledge and experience, a cr re"tive against any unjust, improper or injurious effects likely to result from so much of said animadversions as were ,aed on errror. The Supreme Court of Tennessee, as oreaoized under the Constitution of l.7(( is temporarily composed of six ,r,.mW This was done in view nf the large number of causes then pend ing in said court, and likely thereafter tor several years to be brought before it. As thus organized, the court could proceed to hear causes in two sections. In no other mode was it belieefcd then, and the belief has been justified by the event, could the accumulated and in rrealug busies of the court be du i.r.wl v( within any reasonable t.cre. 1 be new Constitution, and especially that feature of it. received tin approba tion of the legal profession and the peo- V1' - , The docket at Xa.ihville has contained uvon it from twelve to thirteen hundred ars every term since the organisation ,i the present court. Jast as rapidly as lh court can dispose l the cause, they .-r Accumulated on tie docket.

If iLe itrnKurp c T.uMiri liuty e.u.i.f ou tie iiurt, aud ba'tau be la'.J to be tea.attonai." contributed his share of faithful work to discharge it. No man who has disin terestedly witnessed its luliors, it seems lo us, can fail to concur in this opitiioc. U is objected, however, that one Judge takes the record in a cause, invesugitM-n it, prepare ail opinion; nnd that the court. ;n consultation, discuss the opin ion, und approve, reject, or modily it. Take this statement hs (rue as to the mode in which tho court proceeds with its business. How, otherwise, can the court make any reasonable progress? The facts in the reeord aro rarely agreed upon by counsel. Thev differ as to the evidence, and the nroper construction and wei ght thereof. The facts must first be known by tho court. How Bhall th ; in.mWi ccme to such knowl edge? Each section can only hear half the causes argued, as to me oiuer mm of the causes, three members of the court are without the aid of argumenta tion. . Shall each Judge be required to in vestigate the facts in every case? This is a physical impossibility, if any rea sonable progress shall be required in disposing of the business. While we would prefer, if such a work were practicable now, that every mem ber of the court would investigate the facts contained in the record, yet such a course, iu the past and present state cf the dockets of the Suureme Court is simply, as before remarked, a physical impossibility. That a certain class ot decisions on the subject of Confederate currency, rendered by the courts immediately pro ceding the present should have heen modi tied and overruled, is a result which has been tully vindicated by the Su preme Court of the United States in more tnan one Dnblisncct decision, aee Thoriuston vs. Smith. r) iVallace, t; vei mar vs. Insurance Company, 14 Wallace, 6G1. But we resnectfullv submit that, with the foreoine exceDtion. the decisions of the present Supreme Court ot i ennessee are as much in accord with the decisions of the Supreme Court of this htate an te cedent tn the war. with those of the Sip preme Court of the United States, and with the well settleu principles oi juris nru dence established ia England and America, as the decisions of any Court preceding it in thU State. And, iu this respeci, our oujiiniio vuun i-h ..u... pare favorably with that of any State iu the Union. The Supreme Court of I ennessee has nertormed its labors well, it nas, tin der circumstances of great provocation, at times, muintained a dignified and courteous relationship with the bar. It has laboriously examined and honestly decided the large number of causes whidh have come before it. ratience, labor, learning, ability, and iutegrity have been marked and prominent ele ments in the administration ol justice ia that forum. Public sentiment, so far as known to ns, has acquiesced in its decisions as just and correct, in the main. It has re oeivpd and now possesses, and will con tinue to receive and possess, in spite of all animadversions, partisan or personal, the confidence of the bar aud people of Tennessee. Their chosen servants, bearing the heavy burden of official cares and duties, iuadequately compen sated, shall never be proclaimed un worthy of the high trust committed to .1 t.ll-. . L . them, so long as tney suau in me miure m in the cast, prove themselves true to the Constitution and the laws nnd the liberties of the State and of the Union Tb Nashville Banner has only heard of the following gaiitlemen mentioned to succeed Governor John C. Brown: John JI. Lea; W. B. Bate, fi. II. Har rison, jr. Burns, E. H. East, of David son; John L. T. Sliced, Wm. H. Steph ens, John S. Kerr, of Shelby; n. May nard, John ii. Fleming, of Knos; Alci. Campbell, of Madison; Andrew John son, of Greene; A. S. JIarks, of Frank lin; O. H. Nixon, of Hickman; George W. Jones, of Lincoln; D. B. Thomas, of Humphreys; Thomas H. Coldwell, of Bedford. It is not to be expected that all the list would come out at one time. Nominations are still in order. Whkk Alderman Jack Walsh, the jovial undertaker of the First ward, seized a four pound inkstand last night to kill a man or two unobserved while the Aldnrmanic row was in progress, he evidently had an eye to his business. Well, every man for himself is the rule now-a-days, but we think that ia carry ing private enterprise a little too far. The County Court very properly ap pointed a committee, consisting of MajorJ. J. Murphy, Amos Woodruff and John Johnson, with Justices Douglass and Brooks, to investigate the state of affairs at the poor-house. The public will await the result with interest. Tut; Supreme Court has decided that the homestead law does not apply to a widow who abandons the homestead and makes her domicil in another State. Aellcra pf Blew Books, We are indebted to the generous pub lishers, Claxton, Reneen Ic Uaffelfinger, ot Philadelphia, for the following publi cations: " Birdie and Lis Fairy Friends," by Margaret T. Canby, is a charming book for the little folks. The story is beauti fully imagined and interestingly told in a graceful, attractive style, and the influ ence throughout is pure and good. The lc0!is are so skilfully woven in the lit tle reiiital that they are learned uncon sciously, and have mnr weight than if the Lioral was toll ia the beginuing, and cannot fail to brighten the heart and home, and make gooi fairies of all little children. Parents could not procure a mora desirable buck- Jt is really a gem, prettily illustrated and handsomely bound. " I.yude "Weiss," an autobiography, by George Throop. The author of this book seems to have tan power of fresh ening the scenes of v'.llngi. life, making them into pictures full of colors and po sitions. His description of Jonah Wig- j glesworth vthe village schoolmaster) is full of humor and satiie. The principal ' charatur is drawn with reioarkabie yigor, and is original Wb in conception ! and development, i here it a spioa and i freshness a;oyt thu work which we ' btpuIJ comxeud to these who are weary j of ike uniformity of what pass among 1 novelists for a pwlur of moJern life. On the whole, it is a reaJable nory, an i erentu' career, full of life's shadows, - i ibocgh wiih a UprT denouement. "Tbe Warll lo I:a,e," hy Wa! lro( 1 not a aen.at'u.Mkl a jry, uii!i-i he truth j know that it is a story to suit the spirit of the times, and i do not believe that it can bo read without bringing with it untold influence for good. The author strikes with forco and character at the vices and follies which go to make up what is styled " fashionable society " "I the day. How truthfully, yet fearfully, he pictures how people, even children, are made criminals and charged to the world! At the verj opening of this volume tho reader is introduced to those t.-'ntnr.t't. in nvorV JteilSfl O' IIV aia iniflt'i.iiii. ...... j the word. Birth, 'breeding, learning, culture are all here; still, with all theso incentives to livo a high, true, spiritual life the iealmia nassions and vices which cverywhero surround us come in as a maelstrom severing, uprooting, scattering; and tilling prisons, graves and society with shame, ignomy and despair, and "the world's to blame." This story is a good key to correct it, and lift the responsibility oft the world. We agree with the writer fully in saying, "The wav to prevent crime is not to punish the man, but to guard and look after the boy. " The Outlaw's Daughter," is one ef Emerson Bennett's ablest productions, intensely thrilling, and the plot never loses its hold on the reader s attention from the first chapter to the conclusion. Tho style is terse, rapid and picturesque, and many of the incidents are related with a vivid dramatic power that calis for a high degree of praise. The Bcene is laid n tho Red river in Louisiana previous to the war, when .portions of the State were over-run by outlaws who perpetrated all manner of crimes, even to kidnapping negroes to sell in other States. Here the original Yankee and Southern planter are brought together, and the planter by high integrity of character and purpose, genuine hospitality, won life-long respect and friendship, and ban ishing the prejudice into nothingness, which at that peiiod existed to such a powerful extent between the two sec tions. The dark, revengeful Spanish life, with all its varied form of hatred and passion, is fully depicted. The book is replete with hair-breadth escapes and wild adventures that are incident only to border life. The outlaw and confede rates all met with deserved punishment. The outlaw's daughter, who was by nature a nobly grand, beautiful woman, who became a Nemesis only through unrequited love, proved that she was at last a true woman, by becoming a SiBter of Charity, and living the pure, holy life of an angel of mercy. LATEST TELEGRAMS. NEW YORK. New York, January 13. The steam ship China, which sailed from Yoko hama December 8 for San Francisco.and whose non-arrival at that port caused some uneasiness, was spoken to Dec. IS by the Great Republic, which left San Francisco December 1 for Dong Kong, where she arrived on the 7th of January. The China sailed with 1(0 steerage passengers and probably a light cargo. In the telegram conveying the above information there is no mention made of oabin passengers being on board. Officers of the Pacific Mail Co. here state that, although the China is some twelve days over-due, they de not feel any great anxiety, as the Great Re public experienced very heavy weather. They are of the opinion that her ma ohinory has been disabled, and, that she will be heard from, at the Sandwich Islands. The annual raeeiin: of the American Geographical Society t:tke plnci this evening at the hall of the Historical Society. The President, Chief Justice Pay, wi'. dV.iyer the annual address, the subject being, "The geographical work of the world for 1873;" comprising new discoveries on sea and land. The elec tion for 1874 will also take place. The secretary of the Railway Associa tion of America has sent a circular, on the establishment of a railway clearing house for the United States and Canada, to various railway managers in tne country to elioit their opinions on the subject, and to offer suggestions as to its practicability. The system of through freight aud passenger accounts at present adopted on the railroad.) uf the country, involyes, it is claimed, a great deal of duplioate labor and expense for books and stationery that might be avoided by the establishment of a clearing-house for the purpose of apportion ing the receipts coming from traffic pass ing through the hands of two or more companies. The circular details the mode of making a clearing house, and points out the advantages to be derived from its establishment. The keeping of accounts of each line would be much simplified and done in much mure modi fied manner. The uusiness of the clear inghouse wou'd be to divide gross re ceipts and to declare balances and make settlements. The circular combats the idea that the exten' of territory is too great to come within the scope of one clearing house, and says all that is re quired is a proportionate staff. Wall street markets closed strong yes terday, and higher prices ia stocks vc predicted- In rtftresco U the Pacific Mail Steamship Co. here there is some speculation in reference to the repeal by Congress of the subsidy act in favor cf the tooipuny. The eneral feeling among bankers and brokers is that the subsidy cannot be allowed to be with- drawn; that po'jlio sentiment would for- j bid the withdrawal of aid from the only American i;.3 of ocean, steamers. One of the directors of the company, however, thinks it is not improbable (Ut an effort would be made by the (J.ircrnnjtrt t'l reduce expenses, and that the tuinidy act might i resale! Ho l.d hrnri that an tSjti in t.at direc- tion wouM be ma !e, but he lookel upon it at a in.tter ot no itnr.ortatice as affect- ing the finatii n condition of ti.e com- pa;.y. The struggle is still going on between the soverul parlies holding stocks and bonus of tho Union Pacific railroad to obtain control ofllo management, and, it is said that representatives of each are buying up stock to iinu iu the March election. A lenglhy memorial to the Executive Committee of the Western Union Tele graph Company has received numerous signatures of prominent stockholders, and it is said by one of the prominent leaders in the movement for a division of tho surplus among the stockholders, that the memorial will be sent to evory stockholder in the United States, and will probably go before the Executive Committee bearing signatures represent ing an overwhelming majority. A meeting of the directors of tho Jlil waukee and St. Paul Railroad Com pany was held yesterday, and it is re ported that they decided to declare a dividend in March. A gaug of Italian laborers working in Harlem were yesterday attacked by a number of unemployed men, and an at tempt made to force them to stop work. The police, however, dispersed the mob, and protected the laborers. Stolon Bonda. Brooklyn, January 13. Considerable excitement exists hero regarding a quantity of bonds alleged to have been tolen from the Comptroller s office, and great reticence is maintained iu regard to the matter. A politician named Frank yesterday attempted to cash some coupons at the Nassau Bank. The cashier refused payment, and Frank was taken to the Comptroller's office, where the Treasurer stated that he coupons belonged to the stolen bonds. Frank was allowed to depart, but will be arrested to-day. The total amount of bonds stolen is believed to be $20,000, all of which has been recovercJ, with the exception of f 0000 or $7000. AMUSEMENTS. Memphis Theater. To-night Lottn, who has been off the American stage for two seasons, will appear at the theater in the Little Detective. Lotta has al ways been a favorite in our city, and,haB never failed to draw crowded houses. In her line, character sketches, dancing, banjo playing and singing, she excels. any other protean actress on the stage. Her vivacity, oddities, grotesqueness and captivating manners are inimitable. To young Memphis she will always be at tractive; and as for the ladies of our city, they have always been pleased with the little Californian. To night she will appear in six ainereni cnaracicrs, Fforence Langton, Miss Guttndge, Mrs. Gamage," "Harry Rocket," Dutch Organ Grinder," and "Barney O'Brien," and will introduce new songs and dances. She will be supported by E. A. Locke, comedian, who will appear ... . It 1 -II 1 1 as Liooovic, anu win ue usmsieu oy the members of the Memphis stock com pany. During this week Zip, or Point Ljude Light, a new drama, and written expressly for Lotta, will be produced with new scenery and effect. MiNHTRKi.sv. The California Min strels of Birch, Wambold & Backus ap peared at the Greenlaw Opera House be fore a large and enthusiastic audience last night. The programme was ex.cl lent, and was thoroughly enjoyed. The end men, Charley B:ickus and Billy Birch, are inimitable. The ballad tiing- ng of Read and Henry was excel lent, nnd the Nilsson sketches by the great Iticardo were operatic gems of the grotesque style. The comic portion of the entertainment is greatly strengthened by Charley Backus' " Pic tures of Great Artist3," ia which he keeps the audience in a gasping, breath less condition of merriment as long as; ha likes. Their quartette is suparb, and does splendid execution in the choruses in the first parts. Birch and Backus are very clever in occupying a considerable amount of time in a quiet, sketching sort of way, during which they say no end of good things, and make the multitude quite happy for the time. There will be a change of programme to night. Masi;vehad Ball. The Confederate Relief Association bal masque, to take place on Thursday evening, the 22i instant, will be largely attended by ou people. The prac-ecds are to be divided between the different orphan asylums of Mercp'sia, and this faot of itself is suffi cient to oause thousands of people to purchase a ticket. Already cost" es are being prepared by those who expect to attend. The managers are gentlemen who fully understand the proper man agement of such balls, and are fully prepared, to meet all the exigencies of the ucoasion. The utmost decorum will be preserved, and not one of the hun dreds who attend will fail to lie ister ested and delighted. Fresh oysters received daily at Ma dame Yinoent's Crystal Palace.
