Wednesday M?m April 9. 1373. Elected Conatj Trustee. Our fellow-townsman, James E. Tboiapsoa, was on Monday last, elected Trustee of Hamblen comity, by the Quarterly Court. Mr. Thomp son will make au excellent officer. Tbe Funding BUI. It is asserted that the Funding Bill recently passed by the Legisla ture will increase the State debt to thirt--one millions. The Farmers' ( (invention. The second annual meeting of the Farmers' Conveation of East Ten nessee will be held at Knoxville, commencing on Tuesday, the 27th of May, and continue until Friday. Ciereland and Ducktown. A meeting of the stockholders of the Cleveland and Ducktown Rail road will be held at Cleveland on the 26th of the present month. A well posted gentleman of Bradley county says the road is to be built at an early day. EggsfiwHrdiiiary Item. The Macon, Georgia, Telegraph aial Messenger says : "According to the East Tennessee papers, the hens in that country probably make more clear money than all Middle Georgia does with her vast cotton planting operations. The egg trade is getting to be stupendous. All the railway and express agencies are doing an eggstraordinary business, and the rumble of the trains is drowned by the busy cackle of the hens." State Appropriations. The Legislature, during the ses- sion just clesed, has appropriated the following amounts, viz : To" erect buildings for the Blind School, $40,000 ; for the erection of Hospit als for the Insane in East and West Tennessee, $150,000; to the Deaf and Dumb School at Knoxville, $10,000; to the Agricultural Bu reau, $10,000 ; to the Insane Asy lum, $15,000. These, together with other smaller appropriations, and the pay of the members, will aggre gate some $35'.X000. Tauderbilt Inhcrsltj. Tt is one of the conditions upon which Commodore Vanderbilt made the bequest of $500,000 to the Cen tral University of the M. E. Church, South, that the University is to be located in or near Nashville. The Board of Trust have adopted a reso lution requesting the Chancery Court to change the name frOm the "Central" to the 'Vanderbilt" Uni versity. Bishop McIyeire is to be President of the Board of Trust, receiving therefor a salary of $3,00u per annum and the use of a dwell iug house, free of rent, on or near the University grounds. A Postal Absurdity. The brilliant idea of forcing the Government to pay its own postage oa public documents and official let ters and papers deserves a leather medal. The gist of it is, that in stead of doing its own work for nothing, it stops to take three cents out of one pocket to put it in an other, and hire a boy to watch the transfer. An enormous number of stamps must be manufactured to meet the daily demands of Government ma chinery all over the land. The man ufacture of these stamps costs mone', and Uncle Sam must pay it. The Treasury, the Postoffice, and the de partment using the stamps, must have clerks to keep watch of the money and the stamps ; and Sam must pay thier bills. aUo. For instance, the Treasury furnish es to the Patent Office a sum of i money for postage. The Patent Offico goes over to the Post Office and spends that money for stamps. And the Post Office turns the money over to the Treasury, as a part of its earning. And the Treasury has ! to hire a clerk to keep the account with the Patent Office, and the Patent Office has to hiie a clerk to keep its accounts with the Treasury. So the money goes round and round, like the white horse in the circus, and every time the errand boy licks a stamp the public treas ury is depicted by just the cost thereof. If the law required an offi cer to throw three cents from public funds into the river every time he writes an officii! letter, and then end the letter free, the Government would save moner. Daring the storm on Tuesday of week before last, the children, fonr irirls, of Thos. Herron, of Blount countv. started home from school. A tree was blown down on them, ; instantly killing the oldest, aged ; about sixteen years, and severely , injuring the others. Sarah Wallis, an old lady who lived in the vtciuity of Chattanooga, was burned to death last week. Longstreet has lost much of his old pop uTarity In New Orleans WMo Hare to pay the MFrtTfIcrc. Under the new assessment law, the j following occupations and business j transactions are deemed "privileges," are taxed, and shall not be pursued and done without license : Merchants, commission, (wholesale and retail,) Auctioneers, Architects, Civil En gineering, Segar Stand, Bitches, Plumbers and Gas Fitters, Dental Surgeons, Lawyers, Artists and Pbo tographers, Brewers, Banks or Bank ing, Brokers of all kinds, Butchers, Bagatelle Tables, Billiard Tables, Jenny Lind Tables, Pool Tables, Circuses, Menageries, Exhibitions for profit, Sllght-of-band and Leger demain, Hacks, Carriages, Drays and Wheeled Vehicles run for profit, Hucksters.

Dealers in County Certifi cates or Warrants. Tbe New Assessment Law. The assessment law as passed by the last Legislature is a "whopper." It contains eightj-three sections, and is about seven times as long as the "moral law" is supposed to have been, and the way it will worry our good, old-fashioned farmers, who make up the County Courts, will be a "sin to Davy Crockett." Thirty seven Wall street lawyers might unravel its mysteries, but the mag nates of our County Courts, we fear, will find it difficult. It is entirely too long forus to pubtish, and about the only way our people can get it entire is to keep the Assessor, when he comes around, with j'ou for two or three weeks and it will take an ordinary talker that long to explain it make him pay for his boarding and have him to tell you all about it. At this rate, the assessor can proba bly get aroundf bis district sometime before Senator Brownlow's term ex pires. But in all seriousness, we think the assessment law could have been curtailed of at least half of its wording, and yet met all the require ments desired. There is too much of it. Intemperance Its Cost and Effects. By the census of 1870, we find spirituous liquors, distilled in the United States, valued at $80,002,796, which if sold byj retail amounts to $616,020,579. Add imported liquors at retail prices, $L86L523,6S8. The same year there were brewed in the United States, 5,114,140 bar rels of fermented liquors, which at retail prices would amount to $123. 000,000. Add imported at retail prices $2,526,660. And we have wine, $31,355,270. Giving the over whelming grand total for drinks $2,020,403,C24. 1870. Leading products flour and meal $524,000,000 Cotton Goods 115,000,000 Boots and Shoes... 90.000,000 h Clothing 70,000,000- Woolen Goods 69,000,000 " Books. Newspapers and job printing 42,000,000 Total $910,000,000 Thus we have the appalling fact that the cost of liquors to drinkers in one year, was $1,110,403,624 more than the value of all the flour, meal, cotton goods, clothing, woolen goods, boots and shoes, and printing books, newspapers, and all other publications in the United States for the same year. Actual cost of intoxicating drinks in the United States for a single year, we find it to be $2,020,403,624. Time lost by tlrinkingmen, $739, 029,579. Cost of crime caused by intemperance, $271000,000. Cost of litigations and prisons $24,000,000. The total proximate of cost of In temperance, therefore, in the United States for one single year, is $3,015,224,200. One of the most disastrous ship wrecks on record occurred near Hal ifax, Novia Scotia, on Tuesday, the 1st instant. The steamship Atlantic, from Liverpool to New York, while going into that port for a supply of coal, struck a rock and became a total wreedc. There were over 1,000 men, women and children on board, of whom but about 400 were saved. All the women and children were lost except one little boy. jt js 8tted that instructions postmasters to collect postage to on weekly newspapers mailed to points within the county where they are published and also on newspaper exchanges, on and after the 1st of July next, will shortly be issued by the Postmaster General. The Blount county had condition roads are in a Toe Cincinnati Bead. The Knoxville Chronicle says: "Chief Engineer Gunn, of the Cin cinnati Southern Railroad, has made his report of the different routes surveyed. It contains no recommen dation as to the best or cheapest route nothing upon which an opin ion can be based as to the route like ly to be chosen by the trustees. The facts as to the character of country through which the different routes lie, tbe distance, fcc, are all fariniliar to our readers, for we have discussed the whole subject frequently in the Chronicle. It is evident, however, from Wright' 8 supplemental bill now be fore the Ohio Legislature and from the unquestioned advantages offered by the Knoxville or Eastern route, that we will have a connection with Cincinnati sooner than any other Southern point. The Wright bill authorizes the trustees to let out by contract the construction and opera ting of the proposed Southern road. The trustees know well enough that they cannot build, stock and operate a road from Cincinnati to Knoxville and Chattanooga for ten million of dollars. They do know, however, that with that sum they can contract for the building and operating of a road that will give Cincinnati all the advantages in freights, &c, that she needs. We feel perfectly safe in saying that the earliest Southern connection with Cincinnati will be via Knoxville. The road, will of course, have other connections, via Chattanooga, but it will be located and built so that our connection will be the first secured. We are informed that work will begin by June, unless unexpected delays occur. The trustees are de termined to push the work through as vigorously as possible." The Amended Postal Law, The Washington of the Baltimore Sun s&ys : "Hun dreds of letters are being received here daily, containing inquiries as to. the modifications of the postal laws made at the last session. Many people are of the impression that the reduction of letter postage to two cents was passed by both Houses. A great deal of uncertain ty exists also amongst people in the country, subscribers to newspa pers, as to whether the provision requiring prepayment of newspaper postage at the office of publication finally become a law. A widespread impression prevails that such is the case. This erroneous. As has al ready been stated, the provision pro hibiting the transmission of any free matter whatever after June next was put in the postoffice appropriation bill, and is now a law. But the pro posed reduction of letter- postage failed to receive the approval of the Senate, and the rate remains three cents for single letters. The pro vision requiring the prepayment of postage on newspapers at the place of publication was finally lost, and the present regulations in this res pect therefore remain in force." Communicated. Bean's Station. March 28, 1873. Editors Gazettk : You must ex cuse me for asking if the Legisla ture done anything with the Public Road question. I live in the back woods, and am behind the times have seen nothing of any change. The Farmer's Convention meets soon at Knoxville, and I think this the time to strike. Let every neigh borhood send delegates, and let every one be instructed to vote for memorializing the next Legislature to pass a tax system of keeping up public highways. The whole country approves it if you could only get an expression from them. It is demanded by jus tice and humanity by the interest of the rich and poor. It is unnec essary to go over the old story about making the poor man keep up the roads for the rich. Every one who has honesty enough to keep his hands out of your pocket will -admit that you had as well take the Sheriff and make the poor man work your cotton or corn as your roads. It is not necessary to urge the question of a change of policy, for there is not a man with the least de gree of intelligence, but will admit that it is of more vital jmportance than every act of every Legislature since the war. In conclusion. I charge and be lieve that if in 1865 the Legislature had passed the one bill keeping up all public improvements by a uni form taxation, and then adjourned until 1875, the State would be in much better condition. It would have increased the value of the real state so that the surplus and rev enue would have been doubled. The wrangling over Funding Bills would have been obviated by the means of paying said debt. There are other public evils demanding attention suffice it to say, for the present, that I know one man who will give one dollar of every five spent judiciously upon the roads from Bean's Station to Morristown.

Editors On Thursday, the 18th, I bid adieu to the scenes ef boyhood days, and started to sek "fame end fortune'' in tbe great State of Texas. At Knoxville, I was i joined by Sam. Taylor, of Morris- town, and H. S. Maloney, of Greene county. These gentlemen were very pleasant traveling companions. We purchased tickets over the Selma, Rome & Dalton Railroad, known, I believe, as the Blue Mountain Route. We changed cars first at Cleveland, Tenn., and run out on a branch of the E. T., Va. & Ga. Railroad, to Dalton, 28 miles. This road runs through a remarkably poor country ; so poor, in fact, that I could not im agine what it was made for, unless to fill up a "big hole." We left Dal ton at 6 o'clock. P. M., for Calera, Ala. The road bet ween these places is rough, and the trains run very slow. We reached Calera at G, A. M. This is the point of crossing ftr the N. & S. Railroad, from Decatur to Montgomery, and the S., R. & D. Railroad. The only thing of note about Calera is a large, fine hotel. In fact, that about constitutes the town. We left Calera for Montgom ery at 11, A M. ; arrived at 2, P. M.. and laid over until 6. We vis ited the Alabama Legislature while in M., and found rather a motley crew nearly as many negroes as white men. If you would "dress up" any of your common niggers, about Morristown, they would compare fa vorably with the Alabama legislators. I sav. some intelligent white men, but not a majority of the members by any mesns. We were present at the adjourning of the House for the evening, which question gave rise to a disorderly and disgraceful scene. Some of the members had some re marks they wanted to make, and when the Speaker attempted to bring the question of adjournment before the House, they would interrupt him in such a manner that he would be compelled to stop. To me it seemed rather a disgraceful affair, but being unsophisticated, perhaps I did not know. They were engaged fqr some time in this scene, and the Speaker seemed to have little or no control of the House. At 6 o'clock, P. M., we took the Montgomery & Mobile Railroad for Mobile. The country from Calera to Mobile is no account for anything except pines. We passed through some of the finest pine forests I ev er saw. Thousands of trees, straight without a limb for many feet. There are many steam saw-mills through this country. Before we got to Mo bile the cypress forests set in, and the timber is very fine. The whole country is generally low and swampy, and goes bv the name f Hammock land. We go for miles, in many places without house. The forests are said to abound in ducks, snipe and wild turkey. At daylight, we crossed the Tensas river twenty one hundred feet wide and from 25 to 30 deep. From this on, we cross ed rivers, baj'ous and bays very often. I began to conclude that the erhole country was made of water. We reached Mobile at f, A. M. Mo bile is a point of considerable busi ness. We remained here until 10 o'clock, and then took the N. O., M. & Texas Railroad for New Orleans. We saw no good land none that an East Tennesseean would fiave. This was on Satnrdaj'. We crossed sev eral large water courses on that day. Biloxi Bay is from a mile to a mile and a quarter wide ; also, the Bay of Saint Louis is about the same width, and have good, substantial bridges. We saw some alligators along the bayous near the track, and many oth er things that would interest a Ten nesseean. We saw. corn up, in lit tle garden spots, along the road ; the trees were green, and we began to discover quite sensibly that we were in a warmer climate. We remained in New Orleans until yesterday morn ing, at the City Hotel. At 8 o'clock, we started for Brashear City, over Morgan's Louisiana & Texas Rail road. This road connects with Mor gan's line of steamers for Galveston. Morgan is a New York man who bought this line during the war, when the stock was low. He owns and controls the whole line "from New Orleans to Galveston. I -was told that his income from this line was about one hundred and fifty thousand dollars per month. Pretty steep ! but it is a big line. The distance is 320 miles 80 by rail, 240 by water. Crossing the Gulf was the great event of our journey ; one to which our attention had been directed from the start. At 1, P. M., we boarded the steamer Whitney ; soon we were out on the Gulf, which was very rough yesterday and last night. A great many of the passengers were sea-sick. I was not, but I was in bed most of the time, which prevented the sickness, I suppose. I feel much safer on terra Jirtna. We arrived here this morning at 7 o'clock, hav ing traveled 1,023 wiloa- fare from Knoxville to Galveston $38 GO. j would advise emigrants to go the oth er route, via St. Louis, if they are going to Northern Texas. If I see anything of interest, will furnish you with it. J- A. S. At St, Louis, the Democratic municipal ticket was elected by more J than three thousand majority. General News.

Several companies are Organizing in tbe east to manufacture sewing machines, and it is predicted that sixty-five dollar machines will sell at. thirty-five dollars within a year. Rich Men for the Senate. Commenting on the prevailing opinion that only rich men can get into the United States Senate, nowa days, the Sau Francisco Bulletin goes over the list of '-wealthy" Senators : It has come to this that. s elec tions are now managed in a large number f the States, the candidate must either have wealth or he must be the friend of some powerful cor poration. No matter how much ability one may have or how superior he may be in all that would make a good legislator, there is small chance for him without money. If he is poor and honest, there is less hope for him. The Senate is filling up with inferior men, who, having reach ed office corruptly, will thereafter legislate corruptly. If they were the toots of corporations before elec tion, they will be nothing less after ward. The remedy is with the peo ple, just where the evil has origina ted. If they are willing to perpet uate this reign of fraud, then there is no hope of reform. The worst men in the community will have a far better chance of going to the Senate than the best. The recent exposures of bribery will not mend matters. Nor can any reform touch ing the purity of elections be expec ted to originate in the Senate when so large a number of tbat body are more or less tainted by election tricks. The popular anathemas go for nothing unless in some way a re form can be initiated right down among the people. The Nashville correspondent of the Courier-Journal, in one of his spicy and pleasant letters, says of East Tennessee : "Let the young men who have their eyes set on Colorado and the West turn to East Tennessee with her billions of treasure slumbering in her yet unbroken mountains. Her people are just beginning to sppre-; ciate the immense wealth ot tins great State, and to-day stand, amaz ed at the prospect, and wonder that they have slept so long. They are just now beginning to put forth an effort. The great West, in less than ten months, will realize that she has found a rival right here at our very doors destined to turn back the tide of immigration. The waking up here is wonderful ; I feel it in the very air- a remarkable uprising and eye-opening even within the last two weeks." New Advertisements.

Tl IT'S VEGETABLE Liver IMllss- Tbs startling drawback on nearly all medicinal agents has ever been that in their process of pur- I gation and purification they have also debilitated j the system. To ooviate tors aimcuity pnyeicians have long sought for an agent that would PURGE, PURIFY AND STRENGTHEN AT ONE AND THE SAME TIMK. Their research has at last beea rewarded by a dis covery which fully realizes the fondest desires of the medical faculty, and which is justly regarded as the most important triumph that Pbarm cy has ever achieved. .
