f eWay Monnng, MarcH 5, 1873, in iirp ii i j Four millions have already been expended in the construction of the new postofflce at New York, and two millions more will be required to finish it. The Credit Mobilier investigation has proven clearly the assertion of Shakespeare that "a man may smiTe and smile again and be a villain" which his name is Colfax I The resolution to expel Ames and Brooks from the lower House of Congress, for Credit Mobilierism," failed, and they are just as honest now as any other Congressman. Legislative proceedings for the past week have not been of much interest. The Revenue bill has en gaged the attention of the Senate the greater part of the time. Gov. Warmoth was asked if Judge Durell got drunk on the bench, to which he replied : "No I think not. My impression mind, ,this is only an impression is he gets drunk at home before he goes on the bench." Julius E. Raht, General Superin tendent of the Dncktown Copper Mines, has an annual income of $190,000. He is part owner in sev eral of the mines and is paid for the management of other interests. He operates the mines with consummate skUL Colfax is still explaining away his connection with the Credit Mobilier bwfndle, through the associated press dispatches, but like the rabbit in the well, he climbs up one foot in the day time, and slides back two feet at nijjht. At this rate he will soon be well out of sight, as well as mind. The thieves who were put in of fice in the Southern States by the bayonet, cheated and robbed until they reduced several of these States almost to bankruptcy, and now the question is broached whether the debts they created while thus rob bing the people, ought to be paid by the Federal Government. Matters in Europe are beginning to assume strange and complicated figures upon the blackboard of cur rent histor-. While France and Spain have deelaired in favor of a republican form of government, the mere central powers seem to be pre paring for a struggle upon the old platform of despotic power. Murder will Out. It is rumored that a convict now in the South Carolina penitentiary has signified his desire to make a confession of the commission of a murder, for which another was exe cuted in the summer. Xcw County. The lower House of the Legisla ture has passed a bill on its third reading to form a new county, to be called Webster, out of parts of Claiborne. Campbell and Union. Pardoned.

Butler, who regards himself uow as almost the only houest man left, wanted to fiuht the report then and there. He said that if Ames was to be expelled for bribery it was clear that somebody had been briber!, and he demanded to know who it was. For once hi3 ancient friends, the Democrats, rallied to hia side, but the further consideration of the re port was postponed. The State of Kentucky has seven daily papers. Terrneseee has eleven. In General Mahone's Rear The Pen- j pie of Scott County, Vs., after him with a 8 harp Stick. , 81 At a large and respectable meet ing of the citizeaa of Scott county, Virginia, held at Estillville, on the 11th day of last month, quite a for midable arraignment of the A., M. & O. Railroad management was made and some pretty strong resolutions in relation thereto were adopted. It appears from the resolutions adopted by this Scott county meeting that the "act of consolidation," as pass ed by the Virginia Legislature, for the benefit of General Mahone's line of Railroad, is not being complied with; that the funds provided for the extensioaof the line from Bris tol to Cumberland Gap are not being applied as the law directs, but are being used or attempted to be used in "stock-jobbing operations" outside and beyond where the law intended it should be used, and that the interests of the stockholders in that part of the line known as the "Virginia & Kentucky Railroad" are being shamefully neglected and gross ly abused. The meeting resolved to take such steps as would be neces sary to protect the interests of their section, and an "injunction" that favorite weapon of Gen. Mahone is mentioned in one resolution as be-ino- one of the measures to be em ployed in bringing the derilect au thorities of the A., M. & O. Railroad Company to a sense of their duty. It is to be hoped that the action of our Scott county friends will result in bringing about such a state of af fairs that General Mahone will be compelled to "withdraw his forces" from Tennessee and North Carolina and let our Railroad interests alone. The Torbett Issne. Much has been paid of late, says the Memphis Ledger, about the Tor bett issue. The question properly belongs to the courts, where it will have to bo settled at last, unless the Legislature voluntarily assumes that the issue was legal, and passes a bill to make it receivable for taxes, or to ! fund it with the rest of the State debt. This we feel assured the Leg islature will never do. The ' new issue" is not in the hands of "inno cent holders ;" it has been bought up long ago at prices all the way from five to forty cents on the dol lar. Holders are not so hopeful as they were a week. or two ago. The decision of Chancellor Fleming stiffened the market price somewhat, put there are many good lawyers who seriousty doubt whether the Su preme Court of the United States will sustain the validity of acurren cv issued notoriously in aid of the "rebellion" against the government. The holders couW not be induced by the State to part with this currency at fifty cents on the dollar. They hope to realize at least ninety in less than two years ; hence-the State has nothing to gain by any measure which look like compromise. If the worst comes to the worst and the stuff must be received for taxes, then it will be time enough to talk about funding, to keep it from being a con stant drain upon the treasury. If tl Torbett issue is good, nothing can be gained now but time, and that only by a protracted suit car ried up through the courts. The main facts may be briefly stated thus : A case has been decided in the Chancery Court against the people. An appeal has been taken to the siiittrmA CVwirfc. and an earlv dav set J(ror u3 hearing The suggestion is made on good authority that trie facts were not all presented ; that the evidence of Governor Harris and Win. A. Quarles (the latter was Bank Supervisor in 1SG1 and the former was Governor,) Governor Neil S. Brown, James L Bailey and General Hardin, who composed the military board, and officers of the bank familiar with its affairs, was pot taken, and cannot therefore be of the record. The made a part Legislature asked a suspension of the proceedings until the real situation could be ascertained and reported Yw . mmitw. with a view, if deemed essential and possible by any known process of law, that the case be re-onened in the Chancery Court ab initio. This gave some offense, and the committee, it is feared, will feel an extreme delicacy in the discharge of its duty. And while the Legislature and the Courts stand on etiquette the main ques tion grows no clearer. . . Didn't cet Oft on a "Bam." Tom Scott, the great Railroad King of the United States, sent an invitation to the Tennessee Legisla ture to take a trip over his line of road from Louisville to Washington City, which was accepted by tho Senate, and it resolved to take a re V cess from "Saturday evening, March J m .1 t. " C t A 1 t Ksv 1, to Monday, March 10. 1873, for the purpose of attending the inaugura tion ceremonies of tUe President of the United States on the 4th ot March, 1873." This resolution was immediately" transmitted to the lower House for its concurrence, but that body, remembering how "shab bily" the Senate acted about going to Memphis to see "the Mardi Gras,' tabled the resolution to accept Mr. Scott's invitation by a vote of 44 to 50. Exemption and Stay Laws. The following, from a corespond ent of the Rural Sun, "hits the nail squarely on the mead. If our. lawmakers had the nerve to come squarely up to their duty to the State, we would soon hear less of "hard times" among our people. The exemption and stay laws should be repealed and the sooner done the better. Here is what the Rural Sun's correspondent says about it : "The exemption and stay laws of this State at present act as a bar to the speedy collection of any debt. No man who knows anything about "the law's delay" goes into court with the expectation of coming out of it at any time less than from two to ten years. By that time he will have learned that he has not only not collected his debt, but that he is out of pocket from one hundred to five hundred dollars, besides the amount of his debt. The court expenses absorb a very large part of the mon ey raised as State taxes. They ab sorb more than two-thirds of all that is raised. for the county taxes in every county of the State. "But this is not a tithe of the ex pense of the collection laws. To find what these amount to. vou must overhaul the court records. You must consult the Clerk and Master in Chancery, the Sheriff, the Clerk of the County CQurt, the expenses of jurymen, witnesses, their loss of time, lawyers' fees, wear and tear of conscience, horse flesh and innu merable and indescribable annoy ances on every hand and at all times, and without being able to estimate half of the damage to litigants. Whoever consults these records will find that for every dollar collected, from three to five dollars have been expended in the process. Can the tax-payers of the State stand this? If so, how long? It is merely a question of time and common sense in legislation. It must come sooner or later. The longer it is put off the worse It will be for Tennessee. "I throw out these ideas for study and reflection. The lawyers will, of course, oppose the enactment of such a law. No, I do not mean the law yers by "divine right": those upon the top of the ladder of law I mean only the shysters, those who cannot live only upon the misfortunes and quarrels of their neighbors. This we must expect. But in a State where the majority of the peo ple bear rule, the voice of the people must be heard. Those who pay the taxes, should have the privilege of saying what the money should be expended for. "When there are no laws for the collection of debts, the "pay as you go" system will be immeasurabty advanced, Tennessee will have found John Randolph's philosophers stone. The merchants will not fail on ac count of bad debts. The paying man will not have to pay two prices for his goods to make up the loss on bad debts. The honest man enn get all the credit he wants without being compelled to guarantee the debts of a rascal by paying two prices. Suck an act would do more to reform the citizen than all the laws that will be enacted for the next century. The people of the State, as well as their pockets, are ready for the experi ment. Shall we have ltr Bnliroad ReponslbiIity. - A bill has been introduced in the Legislature of New York "for the better protection of railway em ployees, and to provide for their com pensation for personal injury while in the discharge of their duties," which carries the responsibility of railroads to a very advanced point, while it shows the drift 'of public sentiment in that direction. The first section provides that any railway that State shall be lia ble for injury or loss of life happen ing to any of the employees, except where the injury or loss of life is I the fault of such employees, and that compensation or damages may be recovered in an action in any court of competent jurisdiction. The sec- end and third sections provide that in case of accident to any employee without his fault, resulting in the ! loss ot an arm or leg, or permaucm disability, the person so disabled shall be entitled to recover compen sation or damage in an action at law, b an amount not exceeding five thousand dollars, cor less than fifteen hundred dollars ; and in case of death resulting from such acci dent, the legal representatives of the employee may recover a sum not exceeding seven thousand dollars, nor less than two thousand dollars, as the courts may determine.

Everv community is cursed bv the presence of class of people who make it their concern to attend to everybody's business hut their own. These people are the meanest speci mens of humanity which Providence permits to live. It is known that a large class of persons are disposed to speak ill of others, and that thing is a sin from which few can claim to be entirely exempt, but there is a distinct class of tattlers, who make tale-bearing the constant aim of their lives. They pry into the private af fairs of every family in the neigh borhood ; they know the exact state of one neighbor's feelings towards another ; they understand every body's faults, and no blunder of im propriety ever escapes their vigilant watchfulness. They are particular ly posted in everything connected with co'urtship and matrimony know who are to marry, and can guess the exact time when it will take place. They watch every par ty suspected of matrimonial inten tions, and if there is the slightest chances of creating a disturbance, excite jealousy, or break up a match, they immediately take advantage of it, and do all in their power to keep people in constant vexation. They go from gentleman to lady, from mother to daughter, from ftther to son, and in the ears of all pour dark and bitter whispers of slander and abuse, and at the same time pre tend to be the most sincere friends of those they talk to. Their black and nauseous pills of slander are coated with smiles and professions of love. Tattlers are confined to no partic ular class of society. They belong to all classes, and operate in all, We find them among the rich and among the poor the "upper ten" and lower "million" in the church and out of it. They are people who have no higher ambition than to be well informed in regard to other peo ple's business, to retail scandal to their neighbors, and exult in ficyidish triumph over the bruised hearts, wounded feelings of their victims, Contempt of such graceless crea tures should know no bounds, and no words can exnress infinity. What punishment they deserve cannot be known, but as sure as.eternal justice reigns, they will recieve the retribu tion in proportion to the magnitude of their offenses against the law of God and the interest of injured hu manity. The Western North Carolina Railroad. The Asheville Expositor, of the 27th ult., says : "Our readers are generalh aware, we presume, that the Western North Carolina Railroad was not sold on the 22d inst., as heretofore adver tised. The Legislature, after a full investigation of the whole matter, determined, by mi almost unanimous vote, that it would not be wise or safe to sell the Road to the Southern Security Company without a guaran tee of its early completion. Why such guarantee was not offered can not be explained, except on the as sumption that the real object of the Southern Security Company was to buy our Road, not for the purpose of building it, but to use it as a means of forcing Gen. Mahone to permit the passage of its freights over his roads in Virginia at reasonable rates." The "assumption" of the Expositor is just about as reasonable as could be expected from those who fought to defeat the completion of the road. Ben Butler's Legislative, Execu tive and Judicial Bill was taken up by the House of Representives, Mon day night, and rushed through by daylight. It increases the salary of the President to $50,000, and Senators, Representatives and dele gates to $7,500 each, including the present Congress. The Western North Carolina Railroad and Messrs. Wilson, Mctihce, Jaques Co. Editors Gazettk Much has al ready been written and said, pro and con, in regard to the above named gentlemen and the grand enterprise they are interested in which seems to be exciting so much solicitude and attention from the people of Ten nessee and North Carolina. The people of Tennessee want the line of Railroad constructed and.completed ; Messrs. Wilson, McGhee and Jaques wish to build it ; the people of North Carolina want the same-line of Rail road completed", but will not build it themselves, nor do they seem to wish Messrs. Wilson, McGhee and Jaques to build it for them : or so it seems with Gov. Caldwell and the honora ble Legislature of North Carolina. What motives? What influences have been brought to bear upon our North Carolina neighbors to bring about this state of affairs? It is as tonishing ! It is surprising, and a little "more so," to know that Gov. Caldwell and some ten or a dozen of the members of the North Carolina I nerice in Tennessee, rW every possible impediment in the a. u-ttx seem to be throwtn w nf Ahnaa rh Aor tnhnild And aJT V'l VIWW " 'v wv,.a. v --r complete uie western onu uaiu- iin.

The daj-s of old fogyism have play ed out; and gentlemen who won't get out of the way will be crushed by the engine of Progress. What are some of the advantages and ben efits of having this line completed at an early a day as possible? It will take to the nearest Southern markets millions of bushels of corn, wheat and oats ; horses, mules and cattle, allthe products of Tennessee, at one-half the expense now paid by our people every year. Then we can reach the Seaboard within 300 miles, now we have to go 600 ; take breakfast in Knoxville and sjeep in Raleigh the following night, whereas, it now requires two days and nights, around by Petersburg, over 328 miles of Gen. Mahone's Railroad, to make a trip from Knoxville to Raleigh. North Carolinians ! sons of my old native land how would it bene fit you? It would place in your midst at your capitol, the best dis tributing point millions of bushels of corn, wheat and oats, and tons of hajr of the best red-top and timothy, and thousands of horses, mules and cattle. Your com-would cost you.. 1 trom 'i to to cents ress in uie eusnv el than it does now. Your hay would cost you from $8 to $10 less in .the ton than it now does ; all th'i3 after pa3ing expenses and freights, the greater part of which would be ex pended within 3our own State. The turpentine and cotton belts of North Carolina will alwa's need the siuv plus of Tennessee. Why? Because those sections cannot profitably grow grain, but can make three times as much in turpentine and cotton as they can in grain. Tennessee is nat urally a grain and stock producing country. Suppose you should not need the corn, wheat, oats, hay, horses, mules and cattle of Tennes see ; it would be shipped over your Railroad to the Seaboard at Norfolk, or to Newborn,, Wilmington or to Charleston or the interior of South Carolina, to Spartanburg, Cheraw. Greeneville and Columbia, thereby putting within your own State line, hundreds of thousands of dollars, and from this other enterprises will spring up anil give employment and prout to thousands of your sons and daughters. Better, far better make a donation of the Western North Carolina Railroad to Messrs. Wilson, McGhee and Jaques than to have it remain as it is, or to attempt to have it completed and lose three or four millions more of your State bonds. We must have an outlet. The ne cessities of the people demand it. A progressive age will have it, some time, if not now, notwithstanding General Mahone's little game in the interest of his monopoly. The soon er the better.

Captain James Fuller, an old and respected citizen of Dandridge, de parted this life on Saturday night, February 22d, 1873, at the advanced age of 83 years. He was an old Soldier of the War of 1812, and has been in the public harness nearly all his life. He was . for several years Register of Jefferson county, and was Deputy County Court Clerk under Col. Joseph Hamilton. On the retiring of Col. Hamilton, in 1844, he was elected County Court Clerk, which office he held until 1852. He was then elected a Justice of the Peace for the corporation of Dan dridge, win, h office he held until a short time before his death, resign ing it then on account of ill health. I notice several improvements in our town of Dandridge. D. R.
