ning said stakes, which he (Van Liew) ob
jected to, and also objects to the power of
the Association to rule him off the several
racetracks that arc-connected with the
Turf Congress for not paying his forleits in
said stakes. In the case pending, he de-
rired in justice to himelf a decision from
the Turf Congress.
The commnnicUion gave rise to consid
erable discussion, in which Gen. Buford,
Hon. Bailey Peyton, Col. Hunt, A. Kecne
Richards and Gen. Harding took part
Admiral Rous, on the practice and rules
of racing and other authorities werequotc-d
liberally, after which Gen, Buford offered

Col. Hunt second the resolution in a
few complimentary remarks in regard to
the press of the country, and asking their
aid iu behalf of the interests of the Turf.
The resolution was then adopted.
Col. Hunt arose and said, that as the
Congress was about lo adjourn, hp would
take this occasion in behalf of Ihe Laclede
rssociation lo return thanks for the hearty
hospitality extended hy the citizens of
Nashville. That when he returned to St.
Louis he would astonMi ihe people in tell
ing them ot what had occurred here since ,
his visit ; that instead of finding here, as
had been represented, a semi-barbarous
people, he had been in daily intercourse
with rfined centlemen; that he found
Tennessee prosperous in everything except
Ihe political tyranny that here exist. He
Gould ay to Irts Aaocialion that they
might count ou Tennessee being repre
sented al tho next meeting with the pro-,
dure of Brown Dick, Jack Malona andj
(fen. Rosseau, some of the finest stock the
world iTas ever can. He continued his re
marks further in complimentary terms to
the people of Nashville, and concluded bv
extending an invitation lo stock-raisers to
be present with their tine blooded animals
lo contend for the liberal premiums offered,
by the St. Louis Agricultural Association
at the next Fair.
Gen. Buford said that if he had known
as much as he docs now, that he would
not have neglected Nashville so long.
That he had a great anxiety to visit this,
city on one occasion, but was prevented
from bo doiug by Gen. Thomas, who had
some obstacles in the way.
A. Kcene Richards, in a few appropri
ale remarks, (hanked the citizens of Nash
ville for many courtesies received.

The judges decided in favor of the Knight

COUIITKSIES' THANKS HOSPITALITIES.
For the courtesies and aid extended to
the representatives of our paper, we return;
our sincere heartfejt acknowledgments to the!
President, Secretil-y and oilier officers and
managers of the fair ; and we would here
take occasion lo congratulate them upon
their judicious and successful management.
The crowd of visitors increased from day
,to day, till yesterdiy it numbered not
much less than twelve thousand. It re
minded us of the palmiest days of the un
forgotten just, when old Williamson turned
out her vast popidation on her gala days
and public demonstrations. Ouo heart and
one mind-seemed to pervade Ihe entire con
course ; and the evidences of energy and
retnruingiprosperity are cheering to every
public-spirited citizen of our fertile, but
down-trodden Stale. This splendid suc
cess has !epn the work of only about six
weeks, and serves lo show our prople what
can be done when they trill and dare to do.
Though Ihe assembly was the largest
we have seen since Ihe 'war, everybody
fared sumptuously; and in this connection,
without wishing lo draw any invidious
distinctions, we will be pardoned for refer-

Thus ended, the week's sporf. Take it
all in all this has been the most successful
meeting that 1m taken placa in this coun
try for years. The officers of the Associa
tion deserve a great deal of praise for the
efficient manner in which they have per
formed their duties. The "best of order
prevailed throughout. The restaurant and
saloon, in charge of Messrs. Flutcher an
Wand, gave general satisfaction. Among
the winners of the meeting we believe Col,
Janiei Conliska' stable, of Chicago.Illinoi
won the greatest number of purses-starting
eight times and winning seven. He won
all the events of yesterday; his horses were
favorites in every race. The Colonel leaves
for Memphis in a few days he take3 with
him our best wishes.
We cannot close without our special and
grateful acknowledgements to Mr. W. M,
Conner, of Wilke's New York Spirit of the
Times, for flie assistance he has given us
during the meeting just closed. To him
we are indebted for much of the fullnes,
i accuracy and good taste displayed in the
Union and Amebican reports, from day
to day, which, leaving out a few typo
graphicalerrors,hayemelwith niveresal sat
isfaction, and have never beensurpassed by
those of any meeting of the past. Wherever
he may be hereafter, we commend him
most cordially to our; brethren of the press,
The Union Street Fire.
It-having been publicly stated that Ih
insurance company holding the risk on
the slock and store of Mr. F. Badour,
which were destroyed by fire last Wednes
day night, had instituted an examination
into the circumstances of the occurrence.
Mrs, Badour, (her husband being absent
from home,) publishes a card, in which
she states that the agents of the company
are perfectly welcome to investigate Ihe
matter to their entire satisfaction, so far
as uhe is concerned. With the citizens of
Nashville, who have for years past known
Mr. and Mrs. iiadoux, the intimation
involved in the proposed investigation
needs no refutation. No person who knows
them would for a moment believe either
of the two capable of any direct or indi
rect connection with an act to defraud the
holders of the risk on their property
Even if they were entire strangers in Ihe
community, the circumstances of the oc
enrrence would clearly and unequivocally
exculpate them from all blame,
The fire occurs in Badoux'a absence, he
bcjng in New York for the purpose of re
plenishing his stock. The family reside
in the rooms immediately above the store
in which the fire occurred. They had no
means of front egress except through the
Btore, and no means of escaps at the rear
except through Ihe second-story windows
of the building. The writer of this para
graph was preient at the fire before the
engines arrived, and personally witnessed
the perilous situation of the mother and
her children, and knows that had not the
fire been promptly extinguished their
escape would have he n impossible but for
me am given inem ty citizens. The only
reasonable theory that can be siipirested in
connection with the occurrence is that the
hrc was the result of accident nr thn not of
a robber who thus sought to conceal traces
ot Ins crime.

From the Knoxville Press and Herald
of the 23d, we learn that Col, John M.
Fleming, the editcr of that paper, was the
object of a brtital assault on the day pre
vious, and gives the following statement:
" The Colonel was standing in the store of
Messrs. Barry & McDaniel, when W. C.
Nelson, of Philadelphia, Tenn., accompa
nied bv his son, a young man, and a third
party, at present unknown, came up be
hind him. Cot Fleming was standing
with his back partly towards the door,
when W. C Nelson struck him in Ihe head
with a thick stick. The Colonel instinct
ively attempted to draw out his pistol,
when Nelson struck him a second time,
inflicting a ghastly wound on the top arid
left side of the head, knocking him down
and rendering him partially senseless.
Col. Fleming was removed' to the back
part of the store and, his wound dressed.
after which he was taken home. Last
night he was comparatively easy, though
the doctor enjoined thai he be kept quiet.'

had been made npon the minds of the poor
