Jas.d Fremiog, late chief clerk of cx-Trea.urr Palk. was arrested at Hot Spring, 1ik.,'on the' 31, charged with making false entries while in the latter' oCice amounting to $40,000. Capt. Fleming i wanted as a witness and not as a criminal. The details of the arrest as given in the A merman show that dftective Hubert M. Porter found Caj t. Flemirg in, Hot Springs on the afternoon cjuly 2, and after passing the time of day with him said he had authority to carry him back to Tennes see. On beicg aked to show his papers he handed the Captain a warrant issued by the Governor of Arkansas for hisar irst, baed upon a requisition is'ue 1 by Gov. Hate, which, it purported, was Is sued on the strength of an affidavit charging Capt. Fleming with having made a ft! entry of on the book of the Treasurer of the State of Tennessee, aiding and abetting Marsh T. Po!k in the embezzlement of f 400, 0) frm the State of Tennessee and be ing a fugitive from justice. Upon reaJ ing the warrant through, the Captain remarked to tic detective that he saw through it aHaad.that it was nothing more than a dodge to get him back to Nashville as a witness in the Polk case. Porter is said to have admitted that such was the cae, and then said be had instructions from Attorney General Washington to the effect that in the event Capt.

Finding he could get ready on the Sd, he noticed Porter of the fact, and the latter met him at the depot that eve ning, and they came etrnrght through on the same train. Although the de tective and the w itness traveled on the same train, they frequently rode in sep arate cars.

Je Suprerce Comt at C'clumbus, O., on 2Sih gave out its opinion in over WQrdj ,Q the gu liquor tax Uw, holding it Talid and constitutional, tx rmi the second taction wherein it Is held not to apply to leases executed prior to the passage of tbe act, as no contracts made can be violated. The Lowe-er, entered into subsequent to the passage of the law come within its provisions, the same as rentals, wherein the collection of tax was a first lien on the premises, holding that to subject the freehold provided for by the statute when made against tenant for carrying on business on premises leased prior to the pastage of tbe stat ute, would be the unwarrantable inter ference with private property, subject ing one man's property to the payment of another's debts. If this infirmity can bo taken out of the statute, by ap- pljiog it only to cases arising under the leases executed after the passage of the statute, it is our duty to so construe it. Every presumption must be taken In lavor of the validity of the statutes. It will be presumed that the legislative in tent was to apply the ttatate to subse- qucbt leaws only, if necessary to pre- sefve it fnrn constiti-tional objection. It will never be presumed that the leg islature intended topas an unconstitu tional law. 'Ihe opinion goes into a I lengthy argument, showing the differ- ecce between the Scott law and the Pond law; that the latter with its bond feature, implied licenses which is con stantly n rohibited: that the Scott law differs fundamentally on this ground. j r and is in io sense license according to tbe best author! ics on tho definition of license. The point is made that de claring one section partially null and void does not destroy the law as a whole and its legality is not theieby af fected. Oakey dissents; Johnson, Mc Ilvain, Coyle and Upson concur. Last year the decision was four to one the other way. THE SPEAKhRSUIP. In a recent telegraphic letter Mr. Watterson holds out this seductive pros- nect to the leadinc candidate lor me - speakership : After his chi. f. the sage of Greytone, no mm in the Lnited States i so mas lion anu irmncruiruu ..u... He is an expert in the details of legUU tie work On the floor lie is a bull doc If he fhould decline the Sneaker ship; if he should re'ire from attempted leadership in tariff legislation, he would be conceded th actual leadership ot the House. A chairman of the Appro priations Committee he could bring in a measurf of r treiK hment and reform hich. aside from the isue it would at once join wi h IUpuhiican wastefulness and rorruntiou. woulil send Iih name rebounding through the land ana warm . . ... . . and rouse every Uemocratie heart, There is a brilliant ficure for Mr. Itan- (ail Here, i nereis a cruuiue nnr: , i t !. : l I ship. There is, above all, harmony for hisrartv and creat public usefulness Is the Speakership worth morer auu would you or any reflecting person be taken aback if Mr. Kandall should come to view the situation in this purer light and should surprise and rejoice true Democrat everywhere by ultimately doclinine a contest in which he has Ut- il kt nothinir to cain and vervtiiini; to 1st? Ilvw tilly such twadlle sjuud-i bt side hard, common-sense like this from the New York , of the same date as Mr. Watterson's letter: In all probability the fall elections will generally go in favor of the Demo crats: and then comes their decisive trial. Their responsibility will begin in earnest with the meeting of Con gress. The election of Speaker will be the first important test of their good sense and sagacity The country will watch with the greatest interest the projects of legisla tion in the House of Representatives; although, in view of a Republican Sen ate and a Republican President to coun teract political measures, little legisla tion can le expected. Upon one subject tbe people are unit ed, irrespective of party. They want honest and economical government, and the House of Representatives can meet the popular expectation by simple and direct methods. The public ex penditures have swollen inordinately. Offices have been multiplied improper ly, and excessive revenues are collected to create a surplus for extravagance and i-polialion. A majority ofjsixty-four is not easily managed, with the loose discipline that has heretofore existed on the Demo cratic side; but as tte conduct of this majority will have a most important in fluence upon the chances of the next Democratic candidate for the Presiden cy, the need is so much tbe greater that the Speaker of the House of Represent ative should be a man aole to deal with the questions of reform that will present themselves for settlement Sam uel J. Randall is that cort of a man. THE DEMOCRATIC COXVEXTIOX OF im. ' Biltiiuore Sun. The place of meeting of the next Pres idential convention of the Democratic party is a subject of newspaper consid eration. It is said Mr. Tilden has spoken his mind la favor cf Saratoga, which is natural. Some members of the Iroquois Club of Chicago, now in New York, are said to have come East to further a scheme to make Chicago the meeting place, but they deny the impeachment, though - expressing the confident' belief that the convention will be held in Chicago, non. William L. Scott, or Pennsylvania, member of the Democratic national committee, fa vors Chicago, on account of it large halls and hotels, though he "would not be averse to Boston, if Butler is to be the nominee," The most convenient point, however, for the largest number of delegates is th city of Baltimore.

EAST TEXXESSEE To the EcWot ot Th Morrtatown Oaiotte: A friend from a distant State, so journing for a time In our little city, asked the question : At what season of the year is mouey most plentiful in East Tennessee, and out of what pro duct doea it come? I began t3 reflect for an answer. January. Logs, lumber, poultry, eggs, butter, cattle, sheep, all moviug to market. Money coming lu return. February and March. The stream continue to flow, swollen by ship ments aud droves of mulea and horses. April aud May. Some cessation In the egs, trade. Mules and horses noi going, but poultry, dairy products, sheep, beef cattle, heavy lots of wheat nd corn which have been lit Id up ty ea.y farmers a'.l g:ing. Bacon still going. Early Irulta and vegetables Be ginning to mako their impression. June. Beef cattle, poultry.potatoes, lumber, wheat, corn, dairy products still moving. July and August. Wheat by the car load crowding out on every train. Fruit beginning to move. September and October. heat still a " ? .si -r-v s 1 ? r-. f onrl moves. ne uriea iruii. cruy "vUKU of. Egg trade opens. Poultry nu dairy trade continue?. Hogs, cattle, sheep active. November and December. Logs and lumber, wheat, corn, oat, hay, poul try, eggs, butter, fat cattle all mov ing. Hay all along the line. " I can't tell you, air, when money is most plenty, or what product brings it. It Is possible more money comes from our mineral resources, including coal. Iron. line, lead and marble than from any one agricultural product; but these, like some things from the farm, arc all the yc"ar round a con stant stream. Thirty years ago wheat was the money crop. It stui Drings it. iui. or eight or ten years, dried fruit ha per haps brought more than wheat. I re member to have packed myself the first two barrels of eggs ever shipped from .Morristown, in 1SG0. Now 23 years later it is probable that chickens and eggs yield to East Tennessee more mo ney than wheat. I notice the sale, very recently, of a crop of 4000 pounds of tobacco, grown ou an Ea-t Teunes see farm at 22 cents all round a sale rarely equalled by a Virginia, Ken tucky or North Carolina farm. "Eat Tennessee's pure bred Jerseys and shorthorn cattle, merino and c ts wold sheep, Berkshire and Poland-China hogs, have found their places in al most every Southern State in a lew ... kc iii.jr " "Why," says uiy friend, "do you tell oe thu: all thee product are suc cessfully n ade, and male to piy In East Tennessee?" "I dv, sir; and it is no exaggeration to say that so far as they are Intelli gently attended to each one of them pays a3 well as at any place on the con tinent." "Why," says he, "what a country you have. I: is not so South, North, East or West. If you only had manu facturing facilities water power, for instance it seems to me this sectioj, where everything grows out of the soil or is fuuid in the hills, would eoon be tii'e l ni'li capital, engaged in manu f oUu ring our ti in be rs.mi neraN.gr alii, wojI a.i i the cotton from just South of you ?' "Why," said I, "there Is not on the continent a section of equal area with Ea-t Tennessee that contains so many available waterpowers. They are ev- rrhri. in everT countv. in almost j i - every civil district, and for sale, too, for a song, with the time thrown in." My friend seemed a little astonished and somewhat lost in re very. I closed the conversation by saying to him : "My friend,- if you have money to in vest in land or In any manufacturing enterprise, you will miss it if you leave East Tennessee for any other part of this continent to make your invest ment " i. .. From the Nashville papers we learn that the irrepressible Bealey, late can didate for Governor, reached Nashville on the 4th with an injunction bill which he proposes to file in the Chancery Court to restrain the funding of the State debt according to the 50-3 settle ment. The bill was presented to Chan cellor J. J. Williams, at Winchester, a day or two ago, but Chancel lor V llliams returned the bll! to Gov. Beasley, declining to issue the injunc tion as prayed for. Gov. Beasley brought bis bill and Chancellor Wil liams' reasons for not granting a fiat. The bill asks the court to enjoin the funding on the broad ground that the Slate docs not owe the debt and her citizens should not be taxed to pay it. There are eighty names signed to the bill. Gov. Beasley said ho didu't care whether Chancellor Merritt would grant the injunction or not. He would file his bill ail the same and he was not sure that he would be sustained on final hearing. Tbe Chancellor has the bill under advisement. , The latest news concerning the Richmond duelists, Elam and Beirne is to the t fleet that Mr. Elam Is doing well, i-t able to sit up and his physi ciuit reports that he will be out in i few day?. E litor Beirne returned to Richmond lst Friday. He received a perfect ovation from his friends and was congratulated by s cores of persons on the streets. Mr. Beirne was met by a policeman upon his arrival at the depot and the old warrant issued for hi arrest, charging him with contem plating a duel with Elam, served. Mr. Beirne went to the station house and sut rendered himself and was subse quently discharged by the Police Jus tice. This action dots not affect the proceedings to be instituted In the Auzusta County Court against Beirne and Elam for fighting the duel. Senator Voerbces was riding with a correspondent in Terre Haute the other day, when a cow blocked the road. "What a fool a cow is?" the latter re marked. "Yes, what a fool a cow la,' responded tbe Senator, "and a goase A caw and a goose are the greatest fools I know of, except a man who thinks a tariff can bo laid without pro tection." Voorhees, no doubt, had Watterson in hi mind's eye. To Smokers: If you wans the best t iar that was ever bought in Morris town, call for Solon Shingle at McFarlaxd &, McAmisV I SPEAKER RANDALL. II B HAS KO WISH TO EXPLAIN HIS COCBSE PCBIXG THE ELECTORAL COUNT of 1877. Ex-Speaker Samuel J. Randall is again at home after an absence of ten days from Philadelphia. A newspa per correspondent found. him busily engaged in disposing of a huge pile of letters which had accumulated upon his table. Upon his attention being called to charges recently made public that as Speaker of the nouse be was responsible for the failure of Mr. Til den to secure the Presidency in 187, because hejrefused to allow Democrats iu the House to filibuster In order to carry the counting of the electoral vote beyond the fourth of March, Mr. Randall said he had nothing to ex plain concernine his official action during the trying ordeal of counting the electoral vote of the States whose returns were In dispute. He further said the creation of the electoral Com mission was the w ik of a Democratic House and Republican Senate, and In framing th&t commission It was made mandatory that there fchould be no de lay in either body in making the count. It was his duty to obey, not to defy the law, and no matter how strongly the sympathies of his heart were with his party during the per formance of an act without precedent In the history of the nation, his most solemn judgment taught him that no error, no deviation from the rugged path of duty prescribed by law, must be made by him, and he endeavored to perform his duty to his country as God gave him the light to see it. FILIBUSTERING COULD NOT AID TILDEX. One of Mr. Randall'e most intimate friends, In speaking f this matter, says: "Had Speaker Randall per mitted the House to filibuster over the disputed vote of Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina, and the result of the electoral vote had not been reached until after noon of March 4th, would that have seated Mr. Tilden in the Presidential chair? Not any more than it would have placed Mr. Hayes there; it would have lelt the country without a President or Vice-President, and who can imagine what then would have followed? Again, filibus tering was more certain to work to the injury of Mr. Tilden than Mr. Hayes, and every principle of party consider ation as well as the performance of a solemn duty demanded of Mr. Ran dall a rigid compliance with the law upon the subject, and no man will ever be made to suffer for obeying the law." MR. RAWDALL SOUGHT DIVINE GUIDANCE. A distinguished lawyer of Pennsyl vania, a gentleman who expected to be a member of Mr. Tilden's Cabinet, and who was at Mr. Randall's 6ide during the greater part of the time the subject of the disputed electoral vote was under consideration, says: "When the grave responsibilities imposed by the electoral Commission act were thrust upon Speaker ltandall he felt that a wisdom greater man mas oi a man was requisite under the great, or deal he kuew that Divine wisdom was necessary and walking Into the Breaker's private room Mr. Randall closed the door behind him and there, solitary and alone, communed with his Maker he called upon the God of Na lions to aid in guiding him aright and from the moment Samuel J. Kan dall returned from the communion w ith the Great Master he never swerv ed a hair's breadth in the performance of his duty, and no criticism, however uniust it may be, can ever injure mm in the minds of the American people who will take the trouble to review this whole subject of the Electoral Commission." In a note to the American, Prof. F E. Barnard, of Vanderbilt Observato ry, calls the attention of the public to the remarkable spots now visible in the sun. He says that for several days past a very large group consisting princi pally of two enormous holes have been slowly traversing the disc from east to west, and are now to the west ward of the center. The large spots are very conspicuous to the naked eye (protected with a piece of smoked glass,) and afford a splendid opportun ity to those who possess no teleecope for seeing some of the effects of a "sun storm." Smoke a piece of glass so that when the sun is looked at through it all the glare Is cut down, and his round disc Is seen, the spots will then be visi ble to the right, I. e., west of his cen ter.

Another Life Saved. Mrs. Harriet Cummings, of Cincin nattl. Ohio, writes: "Early last winter my daughter was attacked with a severo com wnicn set tled on her lunes. We tried several medicines, none of which seemed to do her any good, but she continued to get worse, and finally raised large amounts of blood frm her lung3. We called in a family physician, but he failed to do her any good. We then called in a physician a most skillful professor in one of our colleges he said that she could not get well. At this time a friend who had been cured by DR. WM. HALL'S BALSAM FOR THE LUNGS, advised me to give It a trial. We then got a bottle, and before she had used it all up she began to improve, and by the use of three bottles was en tirely cured. DR. MOTT'3 LIVER PILLS are the best Cathartic Regulators. SENTIMENTAL AND OTHERWISE. Young man, if you wish to realize how little a cause will make dissen tion between hearts that love just pull eff one of your sweetheart's curls. Longfellow said : "Women were ap preciated more for their affections than their intellect." Pshaw ! haven't we been walking in our own light though? These are the days when a "Mull Costume," besides being a thing of beauty, is also a joy, though only a transient one, thin aLd cool. Such dresses lighten the burden of enduring the season's heat and in appearance as well as in reaftty are what might be called "luxaries of the summer ward robe." We must "watch and work" if we wish to be successful in any under taking of the present day. If the gymnastic wishes to increase the breadth of his body and the power of his muscles, he takea daily exercise and that of the most active kiad. If the student sets out to acquire a thor ough education, he must study n!ght and day to accomplish his object. This life of ours Is not all sunshine, but the shadows should make U3 appre ciate the light more. We should not think our pathway is strewn more with thorns than others, for wc know not the hardships others havo to en- duer. Happiness, ease and comfort are natural desires of the human heart, and there are thorns real or Imaginary, n every one's pathway, and In my mind, many of this life's troubles are imaginary, and many of the shadows that cross our path through life are crossed by standing in our own light. Yet, thete are people who dave a de cided talent for being unhappy aud miserable and are unhappy under the best of circumstances. In order to be happy In heaven It is necessary to be miserable on earth. We should al ways endeavor to cultivate a happy disposition, by being so ourselves, and prompting the happiness of others; looking always on life's bright side, and when misrortunes come as they will, let us with Christian resignation say, "Thy will be done. "You write a beautiful band. I wish that I had such a hand," said Mr. Flash er to a lady dark at the hotel. "Am i to consider this a proposal 1" asked the bright lady. " Well er yes if my wife is willing to let me off," replied the accomplished Flasher. NorrUtotcn Herald. Died in this place, June 25th, Harry Lee, infant son of J. F. and R. J.

A Good Thins For the prompt removal of pain of all kinds, there 13 nothing jso good as Dr. Hart's Great Relief. This remedy is so well known that it is probably not necessary to speak f its meiits, but lest there should be someone who fail ed to give it a trial, we say, if you have any sort of pain, try Dr. Hart's Re lief. Many patients at our best hospitals receive gruel treatment. Life. "May Lee Smoking" Tobacco at McFarland & Ma Amis'. TO THE CITIZENS . v - -OF Hamblen County. The following text-books were adopted two yeara ago by the directors of this county for ex clusive me in our public schools : New American Spellers, New American Headers, New American Arithmetics, Mitchel'e Geographies, Butler's Histories. The adoption of these books was a wise measure and meets the hearty approval of of myBelf and all the teachers of the Institute now in session at Morristown. I, therefore, in conjunction with the teachers of this coanty urge the people to supply their child ren with the above books, and no others on the same subject, so that uniformity may be reached this year. I shall be glad to have the directors supply their school-houses with the New American Reading Charts and MitcheU'B New Outline Wall Maps. Uniformity and better facilities for teaching are the greatest needs of our public schools. Very Eespectf ully, F. B. DAVIS, ulyll 4w County S uperintendent . The New Patent DUST - PROOF Stem Winding Open Face Case MANTJFACTUBED BT THE American Watch Co WALTIIAM, MASS. This case is formed In one solid piece without joint or seam, openiug in front only, thus avoid ing the usual Cap, and securing greater strength aud durability. These Watches are all open face. The bezeL into which an extra strong crystal is fitted with an especially prepared water-proof cement, is at tached to the case by screwing it thereon, and thus forms an air-tight junction with the body of the case, which is proof against dust and mois ture. To railroad men, travelers, mi ers, lumber men and others who are almost constantly ex posed and who have to make frequent reference to the watch, these qualities are of the utmost importance. The following letters tell their own story. Valdokta, Georgia. July 20, 1882. "I sold one of your Patent Duet Proof Cases about ten months ago, and the other day it came back to me with the request to make it wind easier. On examination I found that the stem was rusty, and I inquired into the cause of it The gentlemen stated to me that he was starting some saw-logs that bad lodged in the bend of the river, when his chain caucht in a bush and threw his watch into about twelve feet of water, and he was about two hours finding it. When he got it out it was running and he thought all right . In about three months he found that the stem was hard tc turn and sent it to me. I can say that the watch is all that the company claims for it and recommend it to all railroad and mill men . B. W. BENTLY.' "Clinton, Iowa, April 29, 1881 "I wish you would send me a spring for the Wm. Ellery Watch. By the way this El- lery is a watch I sold in your Screw Bezel Case to a farmer last fall. The first of January he lost the watch in the woods, and found it this week in about one foot of water . It had lain three months and over in snow and water, with but slight in Jury to the watch only a hair-spring. C. 8. RAYMOND. ' The above were very severe tests, and demon strate beyond a doubt, that for any reasonable length of time during which a watch might be un der water it would receive no injury whatever.
