Another Old Citizen.
We regret to learn of the death of Col.
Henry Bugg, ono of the oldest, most es
teemed and popular citizens of Sumner
county. Col. Bugg died at his home
in Gallatin yesterday morning, and will
bo buried at 10 o'clock this morn
ing. He was many years ago clerk
of one of the courts at Gallatin,
and his useful life, grand virtues and integ
rity of character had long since won him
that esteem which such qualities as these
command. Col. Bugg was a brother-in-law
of Ex-Governor Trousdale, and
his death agajn brings to the
hearts of a community sorrowing
for the loss of one of its best citizens. Of
late, death has been rife among those old
citizens of Summer county, who have, we
might say, linked the past with the present.
V. S. Colier, aged eighty-six, was quite ill
yesterday afternoon, and was not expected
to live through the night. We regret to
hear also of the critical condition of Mrs.

men from the Tenth warn to Duilu airame
house on Mal-vine stree.
A petition was read from the barbers of
the city, stating they favored the closing of
Daruer snops on ouuaay ana recommenamg

outside the city limits passed third reading.
The following resolution was adopted:
Resolved bv the City Council of Nash

tentiou be advertised in each of the daily

A memorial to the following effect was
read from the Nashville Library Association:
Your memorialists now propose to your
honorable body that the city shall render
such assistance to the Association as will
give the benefit of the Reading Room to
the public, and especially to the higher
classes in the public schools. In order to
acc implish this they submit for your con
sideration the following proposition :
"That the control and management of
the Library and Reading Room shall be
vested in the President and Board of Direc
tors now and hereafter to be chosen by the
subscribers, to whom shall be added, ex
officio the Mayor of the city and tho chair
man of the Committee on Public Schools.
"That the Board of Directors of the As
sociation shall obligate themselves to keep
the Reading Room open at proper hours, to
provide a Librarian and necessary assist
ants, to furnish conveniences for the profit
able use of the papers, magazines, etc, and
to see that the rules and regulations of the
Associatioutare properly enforced.
"That the privileges of the Reading
Room shall bo extended to the citizens of
the city of Nashville and to such of the
pupils of the Public Schools of the city as
shall be selected by the Superintendent of
"That in order to enable the Board of
Directors to thus extend the benefits of tho
Reading Room, the city of Nashville shall
furnish the rooms for the library and neces
sary fuel and lights and salary of the Libra
rian; and the Association, through its Board
of Directors, are to furnish the papers.mag-
aziues and jreriodicals.

"lour memorialists desire to state, for
fear of beiug misunderstood, that they do
not propose to relax any or tneir exertions
to secure the permanent establishment of
the library. They present this petition to
your honorable body on the confident ex
pectation that the city will relieve them
fiom the drudgery of barely maintaining
their existence, and enable them to become
the means of extended usefulness.

Death or an Old Citizen.
James M. Hall, Esq., living at Brentwood,
Williamson county, died at his residence in
that place on Wednesday night last, at an
advanced age. The deceased was au old
resident of Nashville, and was many years
ago of the firm of Hall & Washington, who
carried on the drug business on tho corner
of College and Union streets, in the house
now occupied as Marr's Savings Bank. He
was a brother of the late Hon. Allen A.
Hall, and some years previous to the war
there was not a man iu this city or county
better known. At the time of his death,
lie was filling tho position of postmaster of
Brentwood, and was also acting Justice of
the Poace of that district. He died on the
evening above named about half past 7
o'clock, and his death was produced by soft
ening of the brain.

The Banquet last night at the Max
well given by his Excellency Gov. Brown
to the members of the General Assembly
was a magnificent success. The prepara
tions of Mr. Kean, notwithstanding the
short notice given him, were perfect, as the
elegant bill of fare which we insert will
fully attest. The tables loaded with tempt
ing viands, ornamented with artistic pyra
mids and pagodas of cakes and confections,
were arranged in the form of the letter E,
the middle stroke extending the full length
of the others. The taste and skill of Mr.
J. W. Venable,the steward of the Maxwell,
was evident in all the arrangements. The
bill of fare printed in beautiful style upon
the richest satin was as. follows:

During the evening the Rock City Band
played choice musical selections.
The table haviuc been cleared,
Gen. Quarles rose and said : Gentlemen
I rise with a grateful heart to express what
I know to be the sentiment of everyone

does not wish to hear from the distinguished
trentleman present here to-night. 1 do not

Gov. Brown said :
Gentlemen I have no language to ex-
nress the cra'.itute I feel for your compll
ment. Gentlemen of the General Assembly,
your labors are about to close, and with the
adjournment of your extraordinary session,
doubtless the labors of the Thirty-Seventh
General Assembly will terminate. I dasire

honesty of purpose, the same patriotism,

The band then played Dixie's Land.
Mr. Martin was called upon to respond to
Gov. Brown in behalf of the House of
Representatives. He said he appreciated
the call upon him, especially as it assigned
to him the pleasant duty of responding to
the remarks of the Governor iu reference to
the General Assembly. He feltconfidentthey
found a warm response in the heart of every
one present. Their relations with him had
been of the warmest personal character.
And they had in every instance of his offi
cial relation found in him a faithful and
upright officer and a trusted leader. He
joined in tho wish of Gen. Quarles that he
might live for many years, and continue
yet to bo the bearer of our banner in Ten
nessee. The Governor had said that
the Legislature had done well; this would
be apleasingplaudit to them to receive from
constituents when they returned hone.
But however well they might have done,
they could say to their people that their
Governor has done better. Cheers.
General Tharpe, Senator from Henry,
was next called on, and in a brief speech
re-echoed the sentiment that his Excel
lency might live long and continue to con
tribute to the prosperity of the State by his
able and efficient administration.
Mr. Dorsay B. Thomas followed. He
congratulated the members of the General
Assembly on the approaching termination
of their arduous labors. He was satisfied
the people at large would be pleased with
maatier in which tlifey had performed their
duties. He congratulated them one and
all, irrespective of party, on the success of
their efforts to Improve tho condition of the
State, in restoring law and order and pro
mating the best in- erests of the people. He
hoped they would continue to maintain
the strict observance of the law and would
be enabled to suppress all manifestations
of lawnessness. He hoped the days of an
archy had passed away from the laud, and
that tte future of the Executive might be
pleasant. He cared not how long the Gov
ernor might continue to till his exalted po
sition when he filled it so well and ably and
so much in the interests of law and orileras
he had done.
Ex-Gov. Neill S. Brown was next called
upon. He 8iid te was merely a guest at
this meeting, but he had not been an indif
ferent spectator of the course followed by
the General Assembly. He congratulated
them on the success of their labors
now drawing to a c'o:e. He
referred to the growing recard
for law and order in the State. The law
THE LKfclSI-A IVE BAKQCEZ
was the master ol all. With it society
could be maintained; without it society
could not be maintained. But this was-not
a meeting where politics could be discusied.
It was an eat-ocracy a social assemblage.
Tho future of Tennessee was bright with
hope, and she only needed more population
and capital to place her among the foremost
of the State3 in the Union. But there was
much to be done by legislation before this
could be brought aVout. The State must
bo made attractive to immigrants. H" em
ployment could be given to our population
it would furnish us with the best guarantee
for peace and prosperity. It was the inter
est of all to increase our population and de
velop our natural wealth, for Tennessee
possessed all that was necessary for her.
Col. Burch was called upon to reply to
the toast, "An enlightened pres', the bul
wark of personal and political freedom."
He said he was present upon the invitation
of the Governor to assist in doing honor to
the present General Assembly. He accep
ted the invitation with pleasure for that pur
pose. He sincerely believed the Legislature
deserved this compliment. He had been
familiar with a number of former Legisla
tures and while this had doubtless done
things which they ought not to have done
and left undone things which they ought to
have done to say otherwise would be to
say that they were free from human im
perfectionshe believed from his ex-
Eerience and observation that there never had
een a legislature more honest in its pur
poses, more laborious, and more faithful in
the rischarge of its duties. Tho memory
of such a legislature should be cherished.
Tbey all looked upon Tennessee as the
brightest State in the galaxy of American
Slates. They felt that Tennessee had the
resources to make her the empire State of
the Union. Applause. Those resources
could be best developed by wise legislation.
In behalf of the press, he returned
thanks for tho honor implied in
the toast to which he had been
called to respond. He recognized
the fact that the press had its shortcomings

Mr. Jeup, editor of the Emigrant, was
called upon and said the Governor was very
popular among the uerman immigrants.
Mr. Freeman followed. He expressed
his thanks for the privilege he had been al
lowed of paying a deserved tribute to the
personal and social excellence of the Gov
ernor. Each member of the Assembly
would cherish for the Executive a warm
memory as long as he lived. He would
conclude by amending the sentiment of
Gen. Quarles by wishing .that His Excel
lency might live a thousand years and then
be Govern; r. rL.augnter.1
Gen. Quarles said he had heard hopes ex
pressed for Tennessee in the future. He
contended that the State was the equal of
any in the Umon for law and order and
general prosperty. Her criminal statistics
compared favorably with those of any oth
er commonwealth in this Republic. It was
tacitly admitting the statements of her
enemies to speak of the future only as be
inn bright. He claimed for Teunessee
loyalty to the constitution of the land, and
that she was ready now as she had been in
the past to defend it. He referred to the
General Assemblyas the assembled wisdom
of the btate. He bad nearu it said
that it was one of the ablest
Legislatures which bad ever assembled in
Tennessee, and gave his own testimony to
Gov. Brown called upon Col. Chester for
Col. Chester spoke of the union of the
old Whig and Democratic parties for one

Mr. E. A. James, of Hamilton county
said when he was a young Legislator he felt
like an Atlas bearing not only tne uontinent
of America but the whole civilization of the
world upon his back, but after the experi
ence of one session he did not feel so much
like one. He believed Gov. Brown should
be re elected, and if the Legislature should
return again they would have more confi
dence in the Executive, in themselves and
in the people and would work more
smoothly. He knew he had not much con
fidence in himself the first time he was
oeited. ,He had more the second time,

Dr. Ridley said he had had his brains so

body for its energy and industry in pro

not agree with lien, uuariestnat lennessee

much to do before she could reach the zenith
of her prosperity. One of the
greatest and most important ques
tions affecting Tennessee as a State
was the educational question which
had yet to be settled. Then there was the
manufacturing interest which had yet to be
promoted, that the resources of the state
might be developed. He concluded by pay

ine entertainment tnus nrougut so
happily to a close, was one of the pleasant-
est that .Nashville has witnessed lor many
a year. Much ot the geniality and good
fellowship which marked it arose,no doubt,
from the fact that the Governor and his
guests were on terms of the most friendly
intimacy. There was no "ice" to be
broken, no huddling of strange faces to
gether round the board, but it was a gath

During the afternoon a lot of boys were in

in the drawer, pulled tne nau ot a window

stole the money. Gave $500 to his father,
who. being an honest man, at once turned it
over to the rightful owners. The young

$700 was taken. Since committing the
theft the young man has been away from

but were unable to seize him in accord

to the father's feelings to prosecute the

From fair Italian shores, whero summer sleeping

Where beauty reigns and .Nature's music sweep
ing Floods sea and shoro with vesper melodies;
We bring carved stones, and forms whose marble
Mock the rich dreams of poets and in trust
Wo build them to record onr love and duty,
In columns o'er the lovely gone to dust.
We build them fondlv cliarmed by tho delusion
Of caring for our dead our lonely hours
Aro blessed and brightened by the sweet illusion
That they sleep better for our wreaths and
They whom we loved, the tried and the true-
Whom still we love, 'mid suffering, toil and
We rear rich marbles to these dear departed,
And bring them flowers, o'en as we did in life.
And o we'll build them now, where softly slum

Planting fresh floral crosses here In numbers.
Above her grave In loveliness to bend.

Built with "white stones" of good deeds, bright
Beared by the service of her own pure hands.

Of bounteous, healthful waters; and the real
Charms of her iwul transcend our fairest

To Love and Mercv. and the "shininz one"

Synonymous with balm anu benison.
Seeking out Woe amid the pain and pallor
Where human hearts are frozen Into stone;
Soothing tho trial, strengthening the valor
Of those who tread Lite's wlne-prcss al! alone.
Feeding the hungry, lifting up the lowly,
Bearing the burdens of some failing fate,
And, with a courage resolute as holy,
Shielding some soul adrift and desolate.
Saving some little bark all tempest-driven,
Casting Its anchor where the storms are o'er;
Staying some sinful soul, that all unshrlven,
Drifts to destruction on a dread lee shore.

Burning iike fever in some restless brain,
Striving Irom blessed Gilead still to borrow
