i3- 3s H. SPECK EDITORS Wpdnesdaj, December 27, 1871. - - , - The Gold Market. Gold closed in New York, on last Monday, a -31.08J. The South, a New York journal dcToted to the materia! interest of the Southern States, says "Tennes see is literally at least the Mid dle and Eastern portions of the State one mass of coal, iron and luarble." Mechanics Strike. On Monday morning of last week, the Mechanics in the E, T., Va. & Ga. H. K. shop at Knoxrille, suspen ded work on account of some disagree ment or niisunderstaodig between the company and themselves. The dis agreement, we are glad to state, ha t-ince been satisfactorily arranged, and the wo kraenhave resumed their labors. What an Kast Tennesseean Can Do. The following item from the xne ioiiowing item lrom the Jerseyville, Illinois, correspondence fit tho St. Louis .Republic pretty good showing for our old East Tennessee friend, Col. Wm. H. Fulkerson : "About the finest pork ers sold in the market was the hun dred head raised by Col. William H. Fulkerson. They averaged 400 each gross. Davis A. Thompson was the purchaser, and St. Louis packers jiot them." New York State drinks nearly forty million dollars' worth of liquor annually, resulting in every kind of crime, and damaging the Slate more than one hundred million dol lars a year, to say nothing of the untold misery it bring. Tweed Sj Co , stole twenty millions only, yet to oust him and his tribe from office is tho greatest reform of the day, while to close up the dram shop is merely a "sido issue !" Hon. Robert McFarland: The following is from the Clark ville Tobacco Leaf, of last week. 'The appointment of Hon. Robt. McParland to fill the vacancy, occa sioned in the Supremo Bench, by the resignation of Judge Nelson, was a wise choice on the part of Gov. Brown. Judge MeFartand is comparatively a young man and yet has achieved a very high rep utation, both as a lawyer and a man of unquestionable moral char acter. When an election shall be ordered, we hopo to boo him pre sented unanimously by East Ten nessee as her choice for that re sponsible position, satisfied that Middle and West Tennessee On y require to become ac quainted with his ability to elect him." INJIST TAX.ITI05. TBe Merchants of Tennessee Deter mined to Maintain Their Rights In the Courts, At a meeting of the Memphis Chamber of Commerce last Mon day, Mr. William R Moore sub milted the following in reference to tho Merchants tax, upon whieh there was some interesting discuss ion : Whereas, The merchants of Ten nesseo have for years been burden ed with a rate of taxation from two to ten times the rate imposed upon their fellow-citizens in other occu pations ; and. Whereas, For years they have steadily appealed again and again to tho Legislature for relief from this unjust burden bnt have been refused that equal justice which they have respectfully sought; therefore, Resolved, That they are now forced, much against their will, to appeal to the courts for that jus tice which the Legislature has per sistently denied them. Resolved, That tho expenses of defending the suit contemplated in the above resolution be paid by private subscription obtained for that purpose. Resolved, That they feel a deep interest in sustaining the credit of the State, and regret that the Leg islature has forced them to seek in the courts the equal protection of the law. Resolved, That a committee of three bo appointed by the Presi dent of this Chamber of Commerce, whose duty it shall be to employ learned counsel to defend their cause, and to make all necessary arrangements to bring the question immediately before tho proper judi eial tribunals. Resolved, That the merchants throughout the State bo requested to refuse payment of further taxes under the present law until tho final decision of the test case, which we propose to immediately make. Resolved, That every newspaper in the State be respectfully request ed to publish these resolutions con spicuousty before their readers. The resolutions were adopted and the following committee was appointed by the President: Wil liam R. Moore, B. Eisman and J. M. Pottigrew, to carry into effect the objects of the resolution. j Shenandoah Valley Railroad. The following, from the Rogers ville Reporter, of last week, will be of interest to oar readers: As much interest rs awakened relative to the proposed construc tion of the Shenandoah Valley Railroad by its preliminary survey now in progress through this coun ty, we give for the benefit ot our readers, such information as we have, respecting its object, its route and the chances that it will be final ly built. It is projected under the auspices of a company of which Thomas A. Scott, of Pennsylvania, is President. "Whether it is only another part of that grand scheme, under daily process of development, whereby a combination of capitalists, of whom Tom Scott is the representative man proposes to secure control of the railroad interests of the South and Southwest, and constitute the great est railroad monopoly on the con tinent, or in the world, we have no information to determine. Its im mediate and ostensible object is to afford, by means of other connec tions, the most direct through route ! between New York, Philadelphia r and New rlean8- or between the South, Southwest and the East r . "secondary to this is the develop ment of the great Valley of Vir ginia, and a portion of Upper East Tennessee by whieh the untold riches of their latent resources will be thrown upon the road for transportation to tho markets of the world. Its connection wiih other roads, built, projected or in course of construction, will make it a principal link in the vast net work of railroads ramifying throughout tho country. These seem to bo the main objects had in view in the contemplated construe lion of tho road. The preliminary survey, now al- most completed, has been, with few deviations, over the route of which Gen. Haupt, Chief Engineer of the road, made a reconnoisanco in the fall and winter of 187o. Its course, as mapped out by him in his re port, we give in his own words: "The route, as determined by the results of surveys and recon noisances, commences at Hagers town, Maryland, the present ter minus of the Cumberland Valley Railroad, where it connects with finished roads extending to Phil adelphia, New York and other Northern cities ; thence over very j favorable ground to the Potomac River, at or near Sheperdstown, a I distance of It! miles. From tho Potomac the lino traverses tlie great valley of Virginia for a dis tance of 131 mil s to the crossing of the Chesapeake and Ohio Rail road at Staunton. 1'ioin S aim ton to Jackson's river, a distance of Go" miles, the Chjsapoake and Ohio road can be temporarily used From Jackson's River the line runs to tho mouth of Wolf Creek, on New River, 05 miles; thence to Forks at Rock Gap, 20 miles ; thence to summit of Jlolston Uiver, 24 miles; thence to Siltville, 32 miles; thence to Moccasin Gap, 50 miles; thence to Rogersvillee, 28 miles; thence to J'ussellville, 16 i miles; thence to intersect with the East Tennessee, Virginia and Geor- 1 gia .Railroad, 50 miles east of Knox ville, 1 mile. The whole distance from Hagers town to the western terminus be ing about 450 miles, and the length of road to be constructed ;iS:5 miles, by using 6G miles of the Chesapeake aud Ohio Railroad. " Of the gradients of this route, Gen. Haupt further says in bis ro port to the Compan-; "No other great lino of railroad connecting the West with the East, will bo able to equal yours in econ omy of operation. A standard 10 wheel freight engine, suth as is used on the Pennsylvania railroad, will carry over your line 27 loaded cars; on the Pennsylvania railroad, eastward, 16 cars; on the Chesa peake and Ohio railroad, Hears; on the Virginia and Tennessee, 14 cars; and on the New York, and Erie, 14 cars, in addition to the en gine and tender.' ' What the chances are for the final construction of tho road, we can not at this day determine. We will merely indicato some induce ments which have a bearing upon the question. First, it will be the shortest line connecting the South west with the East. In this day of fast traveling and rapid transporta tion this is an argumentum ad rem, and will have its weight. Second ly, by developing the local resources of the country which it traverses, rts local traffic and freight will be immense. Whon it is remembered that a scope of country, ordinarily populated extonding ten miles on each side of a track is enough to support a road, this consideration will have preponderating influence. Thirdly, its grades are much lighter and easier than those of any other paralel or competing routes, which will give it a vast advantage in quick and heavy transportation. These, briefly, are considerations why we believe the Shenandoah. Valley Railroad will be eventually built. Mrs. Mary McKinney, wife of Hon. R J. McKinney, died at Knox- I J Till , ,u the lbih mat, Work of the Legislature. The Nashvillo corroc pondent of the Knoxville Chronicle thus sums up the work of the late Ecgisla ture : "Between five and six hundred bills were introduced into the House, and two hundrod and fifty four into the Senate. The number of resolutions introduced was about two hundred and fifty, one hun dred of which originated in the Senate. Of the House bills one hundred and one beuamo laws ; and of the Senate bills fifty-two be came laws. Of the one hundred and fitly three bills that became laws eight gave an additional jus tice or notary public to as many towns, eleven were in the interest of railroads, sixteen changed coun ty lines to say nothing of many county line bills that were vetoed, twenty-seven were special in their character, forty-eight were purely local, fourteen were general, yet did boi affect the people particular lo, and twenty-nine directly affect ed the entire State. All of the railroad laws originated in the House except two. "Among the changes in the crim inal laws may be mentioned the following: It is made a misde- meaner to soil liquor within six miles of any iron manufactory. It - y mj of pistol, except a revolver in the! h j or' exc t wben on a journey out of one's coflnty or State, of ex cept bv peace officers. It is made a misdemeanor to injure any dams or or other improvement in rivers made by the United States. Rape is made a capital offence, comrnu table, however, to imprisonment in tho penitentiary for not less than ten years. It is ulo made a capi tal offence to obstruct a railroad or railroad car so as to caue death to a iy person on such railroad or car. Guardians, of lunatics are made punishable for breach of trust. The Attorney General is direc ted to institute both civil and criminal suits against all persons in any way connected with fraud u lent issuance or appropriotion of State Bonds, and is authorized to employ assist- ant eounsel All officers with a capias in their bands are. author ised to execute it anywhere in the Stato. "The ad valorem tax is 40 cents on the hundred dollars. On all submissions before Justices or Re ' corders, a Suto tax of two dollars ; Poll tax unchanged. Parsonages j ; are exempted from taxation ; as al- I l so are stubli-s kept by tavern keep j I ers. Lands hereafter to be sold lor j taxes on tho first Mondays of July I and January, instead ot July only ; I ns heretofore Tax Assessors are ! hereafter to be appointed at the j April Quarterly Court; and must meet in May. A law was also en acted authorizing the Governor to appoint a Commissioner in each county to sell lands bought by the State for taxes. "Revenue collectors hereafter re- ! ceive commissions only on the mon- ey by them actually collected and paiu over. mate warrants are made receivable for taxes due the State." Teach your Daughters Coofcrrj. A great deal it written about the importance ol training our daugh ters to be ex jierienced cooks, ijrfcal ever t&etr position in life is likely to bo. And that usually menus we rhouid teach them to prepare a sk a a . i great many curiousdishes in a most marvelous way, requiring unlimited time and patience, not to mention very generom bU,oijs of ingre dients. No, it may be very valuable, at times, to know all i.bout these curiously "made dishe," but for every day use it would be well For to tone down our own children's tastes, rt e suoaiu strive to give them a tarte for simple dishes, pre pared to perfection, rather than for elaborate, highly seasoned on -s. Skill in simple cookery i.-i one of the fine-t and moat useful accom plishments a young latiy can have. Let her graduate in tliu art of breid making, taking in the whole department. Nothing conduces more to the health of a household than good bread, and every lamily likes a variety in this article. Stie has liero a wide range for ingenuity. Simple mashed potatoes, nicely seasoned with cream, talt ami pep per, are much better, and more wholesjme than raw potatoes pared round and round, like shavings, and boiled in lard until they are brown and crisp. They may net look quite so fanciful, but I think hungry men would prefer the mash ed potatoes. Let the girls learn to cook well not todrown the peas in too mucn whter nor to take up the greens when they are dark and poisonous looking ; nor to set on potatoes when they are witery and halt cooked ; nor beefsteak, which has soaked half an hour in luke warm fat. Let them learn to cook all these simple things perfectly, and then it will be time enough for fancy dishes. Oh ! there is such a world of com fort around tables where simple things are done well. The children grow up with wholosome tastes, that no after years of luxurious dis sipation can wholly rout out. They will have sounder bodies and more vigorous eonstitutiotis than the children of luxury, and will escape many temptations which highly seasoned dishes are apt to lead them into. School Teachers. School teachers will be glad to learn that if they take their ac counts to tho Trustee of their coun ty, it is made his duty to forward a list of the teacher's names and the amount due each, along with a school wan ant, or warrants enough to cover said amount, to the Comp troller, and the Comptroller is di rected to issue to each teacher a warrant for the amount due. Tho county Register of McMinn county recently had stolen from his office one of toe books of record of that county. No clue to the thiof. tiovernor I'aimer atfr brant. It will be remembered by our readers that during the great con flagration at Chicago, that a ettizen was shot down, without provoca tion or offenso, by order of Gen. Sheridan, who had assumed "com mand" of that city. Gov. Palmer, of Illinois, in the discharge of his duties, called upon President Grant to redress the outrage upon Illinois, which the President refused to dort in any manner. In a recent mes sage to the Illinois Legislature, in regard to this matter, Gov. Palmer presents all the the correspondence between himself and Grant, and the Jersey County Demoert says "has proven Grant to be a misera ble wretch a wicked, boorish mis creant, who delights to indulge ro continually violating the constitu tion of the United States which he U sworn to execute. The Presi dent's garment has been made thread -baro by Governor Palmer's late message to the legislature on tho Sherman, Sheridan and Grant military rale in Chicago, in which if i is made to appear that the ProsUi j Aant anri his militarv anWilinatd; add onI the completeness of th , 3 , . . . . overthrow of the constitution oft united Dtaies, an wen as TTte subversion of the constitutions ol the several States of the union. Hut Con. Palmer has, it is to be hoped, somewhat impeded him in his dangerous career, by hif extra ordinary legitimate arguments, showing to tbo most superficial ob j server of our form of governmii, the reason why government troops ! should not interfere in tho interm; affairs of any State in the Union. The people can now see what ki.d i of a despot occupies the President's ' chair be is a man who deserves a ' torn and bloody uniform around Lira for a winding sheet, uni some , obscure and immemorial grave for ; ; his sepulchre far beyond the haunts !
