To the friends ol the Illind. and Citizens of A'ashvillc. I lake this opportunity to stito that in 1843 I delivered a sories of addresses in1 tho different Churches in this citv. in which I advocated the practicability of educating the blind of this State. By this means I obtained several hundred dollars in dona tions, which were devoted to tho support of six blind pupils. Thcso pupils wero ex hibited in the Fall of tho samo year, before the btato JLtegislaturo, and that body mado a small appropriation for tho establishment of a school for tho education of this unfor- tunato class of persons. I should here stato that while engaged in this enterprise my health became so bad that by tho ad vice ol physicians I was compelled to ro bigu my chargo of tho school, after it had beon permanently established by tin Leg islature. I, accordingly travelled f jr sovi oral yeara and established thoso schools for tho blind in othor States.

The act of CoL Jones and his sons was a deliberate assassination. Sooner or later tho feud most have como to issue between the friends and relatives of tho parties. Thh New Orleans lice says the killing of Jones was due to the effort of his attorney to have the venue of the crime laid in an other cnunty. LiddcH'a friends believed it was.Eimply.an effort to evade the- law. and the desire for vengeance could not thus be thwarted. The lice goes farther, and lays the matter to Radicalism, that has so debauched the bench a3 to make the administration of justice a mere mockery, in which the dollars of the wealthy criminal arc more potent thou the majesty- of outraged law. The Bee thus concludes, and its remarks are a startling commentary on the evil rule of Radicalized Louisiana: "Confidence in tho public officers of the country has been utterly destroyed, and we cannot say much more for tho confi dence between man and man which should subsist in private lifo. We aro rapidly (inning into a stale 01 complete anarchy. And this grows out of the abominable Radical rule to which wo havo been so long -subjected. We aro in wvor ot. this revolUT tion being suffered to ran its course withi out any attompt to chock it Wo aro al mast inclined to bclievo that the best ser vice a Southern man can now do the conni try, is to encourage tho Radical party to precccd in their ruinous course, for lha purposo of reaching a conclusion at' tho earliest possible moment. If this end can be reached better by provoking the Radi cals, then we aro in favor of that course. Anything to put a periol to their ruinous, proceedings."
