We have received a copy of the an

The catalogue gives the names and resi

gentlemen composing the school last
year. The Academy Is under Director
ship of Prof. Gust. R. Knabe, than
whom, in all that pertains to his calling,
no more experienced and efficient teach
er of music can be found in the South.
It is the aim of Prof. K. in this school
to give thorough and systematic instruc
tion to make beginners acquainted
with the rudiments of music in'the very
shortest time, to instruct piano and or
gan students in the art of training the
fingers and hands according to the most
approved methods, and to initiate them
into tho beauties of god music parlor
as well as classic. Special attention is
given to .those who expect to become
teachers. The school, is largely patron
ized by the best families of Knoxville
those abundantly able to send their sons
and daughters abroad for such instruc
tion did they .not believe they had as
competent a teacher in their midst. Ve

emy to those who desire thorough in

The State of Tennessee cannot
consent to repudiation, nor to the
suspicion of repudiation. Another
struggle is inevitably. In the next
election the question will be presen

and politicians mu9t, if they have
an fHanoaition toward that beauti.
ful harmony which personal interests
incline to, learn that this question
will not be postponed.
The recent result was due to a
number of causes, and it 13 no indi
cation of what would have been the
result on a full vote. Many bave
refused to vote because they believed
more should be paid others oc thM
ground have voted against it. Some
have refused to vote and others have

refused to vote because they have
not understood or have been misled
as to the origin of the debt and the
State's liability, the payments made
by the railroads, the sale of insolvent
roads, the amount of taxation re
quired to meet the interest on the
debt when compromised. The can
vass was short but sharp too short
to enable the advocates of the com.
promise to disprove the misrepresen
tationsofits opponents, and tore
move the prejudices which the
calumniators of the uoble line of
Governors from Cannon down to the
war, had engendered in the minds of
the honest and well-meaning masses.
The prevalence of yellow fever at
Memphis, and the constant fear of
it at other points, prevented the
calm consideration the question de
manded. These and many other
reasons prevented a full vote. It is
an absurdity to believe that such a
vote decided anything or afforded
any indication as to the future. If
the people were so firmly convinced
as their leaders on that side would
have us believe, that they were about
te be overwhelmed by taxation and
debt, they would have crowded the
polls to vote against. Plainly they
were not alarmed on that score. If
we should grant every man who
voted "rejected" was so impressed
with the enormous burden about to
be imposed, it is very plain that the
other three fourth3 of the voters be
lieved nothing of the kind, or they
would neither have voted "accepted"
nor have failed to vte. Men do not
neglect so important a matter. It
it cleat, then, that the great masses
of the people did not believe they
were about to bo overburdened by
the compromise, or they would have
said eo at the polls.

to defend himself. Ward dropped his

followed, Ward was shot in the side
and slightly wounded, and Harris was
thrown on the ground, Ward snapping
his pistol in his face and beating him
over the head with it. Both parties
were bound oyer to keep the peace.

An extended trip through Roane, An

writing our usual weekly letter. Dur

to feel at home, and entertained in good
old home style. ' As there was an inter

for that rare treat to a sewing machine

interesting young lady we went.
THE MEETING HOUSE.
The aid log meeting house was well
filled, and the Rev. Mr. Burnett deliver
ed a very straight forward, sensible dis
course, which was followed by an ex

things, the young minister said :

' The services at the "Methodist Church
last Sunday were of an in.creting and
solemn character. It was a sacramental
occasion, and there was no service at
the Presbyterian Church. In the morn
ing the pulpit was filled by Rev. Dr. J.
B. Converse, editor of tho 'Christian
Observer, who preached an . earnest
and well digested sermon appropriate to
the memorial ceremonies sbout to be ob
served. At night, Presiding Elder G.
Taylor preacked with much feeling and
effect from Isaiah 33:17. The audience
was large on both occasions, and there
seemed to be a deep interest manifested
by the people.
Attention is called to the prominent
advertisement of Mathis A Co. in this
issue of the Gazette. This firm ban

Prof. Tice predicts that we Miull have
before the summer is over a heated term
of even greater severity than any we
have yet experienced. This is anything
but pleant to contemplate, and we
hope the Professor ia mistaken, but for
fear he might be rijrht, it is important
that every one should fortify against it.
