Just as the passenger train over the St

out yesterday afternoon, a countryman
dashed into the depot and Hew along alter
it at a rate of speed fearful to contemplate.
His coat tails stood out behind him like
the leaves to a table and the air in that
vicinity seemed to be full of brosans. But
he caught the train.

A Venerable Xnisaitec tu be Abated,
Alderman MctHavock did a very sensible
thimr in introducim: a bill in the Hoard of
Aldermen two weeks aiio providing for the
repeal of that ancient ordinance which cm-
powers tlie Jiayor to appoint two special
policemen to attend each theatncil per
formance, at a cost to the theatrical com
pany of four dollars for each performance,
Complaint is made, and justly, lw every
cunpany visiting Nashville, that this is an
impositif.n which is practiced upon them
in no other city in the United States. The
fact that these special policemen are on
duty is usually known to no one but the
men appointed and those who foot the bill,
kii for .is their efficiency is concerned, or
any cood which results from their presence.
The bill passed second leading in the
ltmnl'of Aldermen last niuhl, and it will
doubtless become a law.
As will bo seen bv reference to our report,
r iiw nrneeeilincs of the Hoard of Alder
man last night, the bill providing for the
appointment ot eight additional policemen
tvKseil third readinc in that body.
It is a generally admitted fact that our
present police force is altogether insufficient
for the wants of our growing city. The
shootinc and stabbing affrays anil the fre
(luent robberies which have occurred of lale
ciemonstrate the fact that we are not sulli-
iiiit.lv protected acainst lawless persons.
The additional expense incurred by this
enlarging of the jiolice force is about $7,000
per aiiniun, but this will be almost, if not
entirely, paid by the additional amount col
lected from police court lines, as more ar-
lvsts would be lupue witn a more miecuve,
or rather, a larger force.
SiBfnl Sifting. ,
'Twas whisnered about in police circles
yesterday morning that Frank Johnsou liad
been seen on me streets oi xtwuvniB uie

Later in the dav. it was stated, upon eood
authority, tliat he had been lined five dol

said minor and the circumstantial evidence

Whether or not the pleasure he derived
from his connection -with an assault and
battery case Monday was worth the ten dol
lars it cost him yesterday in the shape of a
fine, is a matter which concerns Tanner

Monday. If one of those affairs is cheap

was a rainy uay, anu mat ne nau no capital

It is recorded of Thompson Anderson,
colored, that he was drunk Monday night.
It is also recorded of Thompson Anderson
that he was disorderly at the time above
mentioned. It is still further recorded of
Thompson Anderson that lie was fined live
dollars in consequence thereof yesterday.
Win. Buchanan, colored, used language
yesterday calculated to place in the mostf

station, where his name was registered.

A I'atlciice-Tryiiifir Customer.

The petition of Mr. Jtunnel, asking for a
re-lease, lor a tenn ot hve years, ot the

it was stated that Mr. Runnel wished to
occupy said premises for the purpose of

CHRIST3IAS COME AGAIN!
To-morrow is Christmas'. So soon?
Can it be that Christmas has come
round once again, with, its beart-stir-ring
influences, never more needed,
never more welcome, than at tho clos
ing period of the present year? It
seems but as yesterday that we cele
brated its rites, and joyously opened
the gates of our affections to the pleas
ant associations and cheery thoughts
and domestic charms which it brought
with it; and lo! spring, summer and
autumn have since glided into the past,
and our old friend with the holly crown
is with ns once more. He iB welcome,
says a contemporary, albeit his return
reminds us (every year more impres
sively) of the rapidity with which we
arc filling up The measure of our days.
He is welcome for he comes to us as
the symbol of light springing up in
darkness, and hope in desolation, and
life in death. And he is welcome for
his own sake, in whatever external
guise he may appeal1 whether wrap
ped in clouds or glittering in f rpst for
Fath'er Christmas is ever blithe of
heart; and gives that kind of impulse
to iaded spirits which freshens, and
vitalizes, and beautifies humanity.
Christmas finds us this year in cir
cumstances which will be apt . enough
to enhance the pleasures wLich it brings
in its train. It has been a somewhat
dreary and sombre time with us as a
people. The hopes which blossomed
some months since have not produced
fruit either of . a quality or measure
equal to. our expectations. The aspect
of things in general is no brighter than
it was twelve months ago, and in some
regards is even more tjloomy. If wc
had had the coloring of our own expe
rience, there can bo no doubt that we
should have thrown into it brighter
lights. The retrospect is certainly not
of a gladsome kind, and deepens in
tone in proportion to its nearness to our
present standpoint. The Christmas
season will be a grateful change, if only
as a brief diversion. Like a well of wa
ter in thedesert,itAvillnotbe hailed with
theless joy becauseitsreviving blessings
have for some time past been unfamil
iar to us. Cares, perhaps, more exact
ing and perplexing than wc have been
wont to know, Lave trooped after us in
growing numbers all along our toilsome
and dusty path. Not often before has
the country felt within itself, or exhib
ited to the world, less elasticity or few
cr'signsof recuperative energy. Hence,
a break in the monotony of depression
will be all the more thoroughly appre
ciatcd. It. is time that our attention
should for U little while be called off
from the graver phases and the perturb
in characteristics of the experience
through which we aro passing. Christ
mas will give a new turn to the cur-
rcntof our thoughts, and infuse,
a new life into our feelings. "We greet
it with all the more enthusiasm be
cause it overtakes us in a position
which will render a short spell of gaiety
And now we leave the past to be
buried by the past, and throw into its
grave the ashes and the dust which
pertain to and symbolize it. There arc
scenes, and domestic gatherings; and
joyous inter blenuings of soul with soul
and moments of rekindling niivenes
cence and impulses of good-will await
ing most of us, which should wake us
up to fresh interest 3 in what
remains to us, and make our hearts
throb with gleeful animation. To such
as have well nigh run their earthly ca
reer, Christmas, wc trust, will present
not the opportunity only, but the in
ducement, of sharing once more the
delicious excitements of childhood, and
by the force of that sympathy which
for the time being, annihilates differ
ences 01 age, will lurnish common
ground for gratification to
and grandchildren. Parents whose
offspring have been scattered by the
stern realities and vicissitudes of life
will, in numberless instances, rejoice in
seeing them collected again m the fam
ily group, and will proudly indulge the
loud feeling which, even when most la
tent in the bosom, never lose their in
herent vitality. Brothers and sister
will come together from different
scenes, different pursuits, different
ranges of experience, to commune with
unreserved familiarity, and to fan into
a flame the smouldering embers of fra
tcmal love. J; riends whose paths
life seldom cross each other will keep
the annual tryst, and, in personal con
verse over the festive board, renew and
strengthen the ties which bind them
one to another. Myriads upon myriads
will re-enter the circle of hallowed af
fection of which home is the centre,
and with traditional observances and
customary rites, with innocent mirth
and laiighter-of tho heart, will rebuild
the household altar, and yet once again
place thereupon the offering due to
Quite apart from the great historical
fact of which Christmas is the yearly
commemoration, and from the religious
truths associated with that fact, which
it falls not within our province as jour
nalists to dilate upon, the manner in
which the festival is obseivod, offering,
as it does, scope and opportunity for
the periodical exorcise of home affec
tions, gives it in our eyes a worth which
can hardly be over estimated. The
tiistes, the sympathies, the sense of re
sponsibility, the unselfishness and the
moral purity, which the careful culture
of family relationships powerfully helps
to develop, permeate society in its wider
organizations and impart to it not a
little of the higher tone of feeling,
which mere commercial pursuits would
else inevitably destroy. They con
stitute the true conservative element
of the age, not so much in a political as
in a social sense. They are the ce
ment which holds together its compo
nent parts the spirit which animates,
shapes, and, by assimilation, organizes
the whole body. Any arrangement,
therefore, which has for its object, or
which, we may perhaps more correctly
say, tends to the effect of statedly re
pairing the waste incident to home af
fections, and to strengthen the ties
which unite the members of the family
circle, is extremely valuable. The
mode of observing the Christmas festi
val does this. We love it, therefore,
with all the fervor of a first love. Like
the mother earth, which whenever
touched by Antams renovated his vigor,
so home, each time it is revisited, re
news the feelings which it originally
inspired, and continues to exert its viv
Ought not Christmas, also, consider
ing what it looks back upon, to throw
increased life into our charity? The
word has two significations, and we
here employ it in both. There is a
charity of the heart as well as a charity
of the hand a spirit which searches for
the good rather than the evil of men's
lives which is more eager to discover
beauties than blemishes which loving
ly interprets other people's sentiments
and deeds, and which delights in heal
ing differences wherever they will ad
mit of being healed. It exquisitely be
comes human nature at all times; it is
especially becoming at this season. All
the ordinary forms of intolerance and
bigotry, and of ascetism in the feelings
and judgment, droop, or ought to, in
the genial moral atmosphere 01 this
choicest of holidays, the latent heat of
which, if we presume to use the figure,
is unfavorable to their growth. Con
troversy may well rejoice to dolt its
stiff mail and throw aside its arms of
assault for a short interval, and let the
quarrels of the world temporarily sub
side to rest, and, to some appreciable
extent, we are glad to believe that such
is the case. May it be so more than
ever this year, smco a trace is this year
more than ever to be desired!
But to the charity of the hand our
holly-crowned friend has always been
particularly suggestive and helpful. In
fact, Christmas usbers in a carnival of
liberality. Gifts, asouvemrs, alms,
tihristmas-boxes, el td genus ornne, be
long to the season, and gracefully il-
ustrate it. ew, wc believe, can
thoroughly enioy its convivialities with
their own circles until they have con
tributed something toward festivity in
family circles wherein want ordinarily
dwells. It is the one only day of the
year on which wc can all agree to for
get political economy and allowedly
give reign to our benevolent icclmgs,
"Christmas comes but once a year!':
and there are not many who will not
avail themselves of its privileges, and
open their Lands bountifully to the poor.

Institute of Technology. Is ew York: D. Aj

This is a paper read before the National
Teachers' Association atEhuira, New York,
in August, 1873. It seems to have been re
garded as an essay of considerable merit,
and was atterwarus published in the I'onu
lar Science Monthly. From this it has now
been reprinted in pamphlet form, in order
tliat it may get the circulation which it is
thought to merit. We have examined it
and, for our part, consider it an able pro
duction. It is moderate and far from revo
lutionary, and will doubtless Lave some
tendency to settle tlie turbulent notions of
American people on the subject ol educa

THE COFFEE TRAIE-1KESEXT ANI
From the New York Bulletin, Dec. 20.
Ihe excitement 111 the Itio coffee market
has continued during the week ending lat
evening (18th inst.), and prices have shown
a lurther advance ol ic per pound, 234c,
gold, now being the lowest figure for com
mon grade. I his shows an advance of fully
four cents per pound within a few weeks,
and now the conundrum is, Where is it go
ing to stop.' 1-rom present appearances, it
would seem that prices will rule high for
some time to come, although it is a matter
that may be decided soon, whether the pre
sent ligures can be sustained. Tlie whole
country is short of stock in first hands.
Yesterday there was only C0,200 bags Bio
here and 17,048 bags at the outports; the
stock ot luo here named is largely 111 sec
ond hands, but is still on the market. In
this state of affairs the surplus usually left
over alter, a good crop has been pretty much
all used up to help supply tile deficiency,
and now the only remedy lor short stocks
here is more liberal receipts from the grow
ing country. The last llio dispatch report
ed a firm market with receipts averaging
only 4,000 bags per day. -Brazil usually
yields, say 3,000,000 bags, Java 1,000,000
bags, Ceylon 1,000,000 bags, and other coun
tries 1,500,000 bags, or a total of 0,500,000
bags. JLJns represents a lair average crop,
and the consumption seems to be nearly or
quite up to tills; and yet the yield has of
Lite years fallen considerably. Iu 1S71 the
total yield was only about 3,000,000 bags,
or sav 1,200,000 bags Brazil, 4S0.0O0 bags
Java, 700,000 bags Ceylon, and 1,200,000
bags from other countries. In lbi2 there
was a better yield, being about 5,000,000
bags iu all; but this was followed, as is well
known, by a short crop this year, and the
result extraordinary high prices. And
what is in the future'.' If the rule of crops
m our land is followed, it would be infer
red that the next yield would be a large one
after rest to the trees, and it is the expecta
tion that such will be the case. The high
prices may also serve to increase the culti
vation, though it takes several years for the
trees to attain a yielding capacity of any
account; but they are a 'peculiar people
down iu .Brazil, and mere "gold"' may not
stir them up. The future of the Eio coffee
market looks strong, and prices may be
driven up to a point that will materially
restrict the consumption; but precisely
where tliat point is, it must be cohfessed, is
a problem that is more easily propounded
than solved, and when theiera of chicory
and Canada ieas, similar to that in exis
tence during the war, will be reached, time
alone will decide, in the mcautime we
leave the market in holders' favor.
Mild coffees have been very firm in price,
and have shown a further marked advance
in prices. Java now being quoted 31a3-lc;
Costa Itiea, 25a26c; Laguayra, 2ra2fe; tit.
Domingo, 20a21c; Porto Kico, 23Ja2Cq all
good figures. The trade, during the week,
has been mainly in Marcaibo, of which
there is a considerable stock in second
hands. There has been an arrival of Porto
Rico, per "Claribel," and there has been a
moderate business in this description at
25a25ic gold. Java is entirely out of
first hands, and is necessarily confined to a

20 Jc; eatreme range for lots, 23-Ja27c; job
lots, ac higher. The movement for Bra
zils for the week is reported by Messrs.
Walt, Creighton & Morrison: Receipts, 3,
000 bags; sales, 5,663 bags; stock in lirst
hands in New York, 30.2S2 bags; Ilhiladcl
phia, none; Baltimore, 5,515 bags; Hamp
ton Roads, none; Richmond, none; Charles
ton, 2,500 bags; Savannah, 500 bags; Mo
bile, 2,400 bags; New Orleans, 1,733 bags;
Galveston, 5,000 bags; afloat for New York,
23,700 bags; for other United States ports,
35,100 bags; total stock and visible supplies
of Brazils in first hands, 112,730 bags.
The prospect of the duty on collee being
replaced furnished a pretext for very heavy
speculative purchases, both here and at
other ports, so that the heavy stocks in first
hands of Dec. 1, have been reduced to very
low figures; also the quantity afloat is small,
and for this reason the receipts during the
next thirty days "are certain to be light.
Again, this is usually the season for an
active demand. The demand from the in
terior has improved to some extent, but tlie
high prices now asked may induce more
caution on the part of interior dealers, and
cause them to again adopt a "hand to
mouth"' policy of buying. Since the ad
vance to the present range of prices, buyers
have withdrawn from the market to a great
extent, and the sales from first hands this
week have been light

We have received a list of the claims pre
sented by Tennesseeans to the Commis
sioners of Claims at Washington, D. C,
under the following provisions of the act of
Congress of March 3, 1S71:
'Sec 2. That the rrestucnt of the United

The preface to the pamphlet in which we
find this list, contains the following state
ment: "The figures on the rlglit-liand side of
each name represent tlie valuation placed
by the claimant on such property as was

such items have been erroneously inserted,

depredations committed by the troops, nor
lor rent or other compensation lor the oc

"In all but a few cases the clients here
in named have declared upon oath that,
from the beginning to the end of the late
rebellion, their sympathies were constantly

they never, of their own free will and ac
cord, did anything, or offered or sought to
do anything, by word or deed, to injure
