As a general ie BFl,u.. - - rule they are a tame set, with little in fluence in their own or any other party. Tennessee, in former days, could boast of statesmen whose voices were heard and applauded in the council cham bers of the sation upon all the important questions of the time, and they would have scorned to vote for in creasing their own pay while in such a high position; but they have passed away and been succeeded by a class who have no influence in shaping the laws of the country, and whose names will figure conspicuously in history only when the time comes to publish all the yeas and nays every printed in the Con gressional Globe. Not a single meas ure has originated from a Tennessee member since the days of reconstruc tion, if then. Mr. Maynard, of course, is an exception, for he has talent and experience, and is thoroughly posted upon all national questions. For this he is heard with attention by all parties, and is something more than a nonen tity. We hope the time will speedily come when the people can see the im portance of sending able and practical men to Congress, and not mere cyphers to draw milage and pay. Our able rep resentatives, who adorned their places in Congress and honored the State in other years, were put aside by the vicis situdes of the war. Mauy are dead, and the rest have retired to more quiet scenes in the evening of their life. Since the war the younger men have not had the time or opportuuity to develop into statesmen or even well informed politicians, and the State bas to !e represented by a mediocre class of talent. We desire to see a marked im provement in the next selections made, and men chosen who have something in ana men cuoneu wuu ..ti - , them and the energy to aeveiop n, uu i. rr-i I to make themselves leu. me yuung men of ihe State who have any aspira- . i ii,.na clinnli? nrpnure themselves lor Iu- ture usefulness by habits of close and systematic study of law, legislation, the seances tor tnai purpose in ouuo.a ,.J . , J th.

TliAr ii a splendid opening in Tennessee for live, ambitious young men; they are needed in various public places, provided they be content to go through the proper preparatory training.

This is esntial to Kn rartv ever succeeded WBT 1 issues of any importance were involved without liaeirline in the ranks and cou fidence in leaders.

That was the way to develop a tict medium; it was the way he developed !" or three persons who at the present liu- were good mediums amongst the Epir.iuaiitt. Mr. Lees next veut on to tytik of the mistakes made by spirits, tieir geiejU igrrtfulness of names and the impotsiUUt7 of tewing many of their cominonications. Among other things he mentioned that the spirit of John Skelt, a Scotch minister, made the mistake on one occasion of manifesting bimstlf in Birmingham and Wolverhampton at the sace time. At one lime the Birmingham tpirituaiisu were honored by some very exalted spirits. He remembered one night a speaking meibom was speaking, and on the name of the spirit beicg asked, the i:ly given was, "Jesus Chrint! " U Mr. Les) said, "Are you the Jesus Christ set forth in the New Testamrnt as the Savior of ti.s world?" The answer was " Yes;" but ea his ask ing. " Are yoa the Savior of the world?" the reply was " Xo." There were persons preaent in that rooia who were sitting with hun ' in circle aomtiuie at u.e end ol li-i... or rvwwnrt-iijeot of Jn-"I, wheq they re ceived a communication from Dr. Liv ingstone, who, at the time, was supposed to have been crunlly murdered in Africa. It took about an hour and a quarter to niako the coiumnuication through the tuMn. Tho spirit ol Dr. Livingstouo told them that he had been shot; that tive Africans attacked him, but bol'oro he was killed himself he managed to "settle" four of them; also that he was buried in a village with about twenty-six letters in its title, etc. Ha quoted in stances to show that the spiritualists themselves did not ihoroughly believe the communications made to them from the spirit world. m A Tender rurl1ilp. In an account of the marriage cere monipa of the Ksauimaux. given by Dr. Haynes, he says: M The match is made hv th nurenta of the coutile. Ihe bride groom must go out and capture a polar bear as an evidence ot his roaniy courage and strength. Then he is told he can marry, if so inclined, and like most bachelors he is generally so inclined. He sneaks behind the door of his inamorata, and when she comes out ho pounces upon her and undertakes to carry her away to his dog-sledge. She screams, bites, kicks and breaks away irom mm. He chases her and the old womeu of the settlement come out with frozen strips of seal-skin and give her a thwack. After running the gauutlet of these old women she fulls down exhausted and surrenders. The bridegroom then lashes her to his sledge, and whipping up his dogs, they flv over the frozen snow, and the wed ding is consummated." Prince Bismarck has recently had a bill on compulsory vaccination intro duced in the upper house of the German Parliament.
