Mr Brien'a bill to abolish Chancery Courts,
coming up, with the substitute reported from the
specialcoinmitlec on Liw Reform the law Relorni
Hill, heretolore, modified and rejected in the Senate
Mr. Bricn proceeded to give some reasons against
the adoption of the substitute. Its favorable re
ception in the House was no consideration, since
it could not pass the Senate. The passage of this
bill vould diminish the public expenese to the ex
tent of tho amount of the salaries of the Chancellors
and officers of the constantly increasing Chancery
districts. We should also get rid of the proposi
tion to amend the Constitution so as to give the
elections of the Clerks and Misters of the Chance
ry Courts to the people. We should also be rid of
all the expense of the Chancery Court; and to that
extent he was for Law Reform putting the whole
business into the Circuit Court but still distin
guishing, in practice, between cases of law and
equity. Looking at tho possibility of its passage,
lie considered this bill the only real step toward law
reform that could be now taken.
Mr. Cavitt desired to submit the Senate bill as
amended, and rejected, by way of substitute, stat
ing, that he was altogether a law reform man,
He could not vote for tho bill of the gentleman
from DeKalb (Mr Urien) because, though it abol
ished one of the Courts, it still retained the pruc
tice of both. But he forbore to offer what could
not pass the other branch.
Mr. Travis had leave to withdraw tha substitute

his medicil practic, to meet with many cases of
lunacy. No man, endowed with proper sensibility
could meet and mingle with that unfortunate class
without having every latent sympathy of his na
ture aroused, There was no class of persons so
sadly neglected as this. And he went into some
description of the hardships arising from the ex
isting legal necessity of maintaining tha matrimo
nial and filial relations with these unfortunates
and insisted that it was time the law should inter-
vena to relieve society of this burden, and take cire

Air. Holmes bill io amend the revenue laws,
coming up with the substitute reported by the
committee on Ways aud Means, entitled, A bill
in reference to Merchants Tax, and to amend tho
rovnnue laws repealing the tax on retail mer
chants, and taxing the wholesale merchants, and
certain privileges blank
Mr. Pogue and Mr. Cavitt opposed the bill.
Mr. Weller was favorable.
Mr. Briea slid, it would concentrate tho pay
ment of taxes in the oities. He was inclined to
think the law was good enough as it is.
Mr. Tipton considered the revenue would suffer
a larga diminution under such a law. Tho people
would rather pay incidental than direct taxes.
Mr. Snodgrass said, there was no tax fixed for
privileges; and it might be made even heavier
than at prer-eot. It was unequal to collect a tax
twice off the same article of trade. What if it
should out off a little revenue in the interior; this
was nothing as compared with the injustice and
inequality of a system of double and treble taxa
tion. Mr. Tipton would vote for tho bill if it did not
diminish the revenue. The demaud for this change
came not Irom the people, but from the merchants.
Mr. Snodgrass contended farther, that even di
rect taxation was far preferable to the injustice of
a doubl-) taxation.
Mr. Wood ol Hardemen, took the same viow as
applicable to all dcser.ptiou3 of property giving
examples and illustrations.
Mr Nixon. Notwithstanding the plausibility of
the argument of the gentleman from Hardemen,
the conclusion ofhs mind was against the policy
of the bill. The tax taken off the merchant, would
have to be made up by oppressive assessments on
the fanner act mechanic. Under the existing law
the heaviest purchaser of goods paid the most tax;
and he had ability to do so above the laboring class.
This was a good system. It had worked well.
Tho people had not asked for this charge ; but the
application originated with the Commercial Col
lege in Nashville, seconded only by the merchants
in various parts of tha State. It was at least, a
judicious system, if it were not the mcst tenable.
Who was prepared to remove this indirect tax, and
exchange it for a system throwing the burden di
rectly upon the labor of the State ?
Mr. Pogue said, gentlemen occupied a singular
position. They admitted this was a privilege tax ;
and yet they wanted to lernove it, except from
the shoulders of the who'csile dealer thereby
making themselves own inequality which they dep
recate so earnestly. Tiiere was neither equality
nor justice in such a principle. There was no more
justice in it, than there wojld be in exempting a
negro-holder Irom tax on hi3 slave, because he pur
chased him in Tennessee.
Mr. Wood of Hardeman replied, and re-iterated
his argument. The diminution of revenue was no
good argument against a right principle.
31r. Nixon again asserted his opposition taking
the ground, that the bill involved n system that
would build up the wholesale merchants of Nash
ville and Memph s at the expense of the Treasury
of the State.
Mr. Temple read from the late message of the
Governor an argume it against the present mer
chants' tax, proposing it lis an answer to the ar
gument of the gentleman Irom Lawrence, (Mr.
Mr. Holmes followed, showing that it was upon
the grocer, and provision, and produce store-keeper,
that the prcssnt law acted most oppressively.
Mr. Speaker Brown (Mr. Holmes in the Chair,)
next took the floor ogiinst the pohcy of taxing
privileges, and averiug that he would only tax polls
aud property, the amount of capital and means in
vested in trade Lulling in li s hand an amend
ment to that effeci as the text of his speech. We
made many sermons gloryfymg Iree trade. This
discriminaton against merchandizing was simply
unjust. He would do justice at the hazard of
diminishing tho revonue. He would tax property,
and not skill, and the present proposed system ot
taxing privileges was in conflict with this simple
pnnciple. Merchandising was recognized as a re
spectable and legiumito employment It was as
much a privilege to be a farmer, a lawyer, or adop
ter, as a merchant. He m'ght vote for eoaoe of tho
provisions ot the bill, if he could do no better es
pecially as tiir .is it proposed to tax the merchant
according to what he's got his capital and stock
in trade. But it was ui equal, so long cs it was ar
bitrary taxing one tie? cription of property and ex
empting another. It was incompa'ible with our
idc is of freedom, to meet a man's investments in
good with an oppressive, discriminating tix It was

and that Gen. Cheatham did not himself know that

But I have yet to observe any manifestation of the

the revenue laws taxing privileges in sptcific
amounts, &c the quction being on the amend
ment ot Mr Speaker Brown 'taxim? polls and
ropcrty capital and money invested in trade
Mr Shemwell said', the present tax was too
heavy on country merchants. lie wa3 in favor of
the principle of the committee's bill.
Mr Meek opposed all tureo of tho propositions.
The committee's bill would make importing me
tropolitan merchants rich. Country merchants
would seek to buy of them, because thus their
goods would be exempt from taxation. He oppo
sed the idea of setting up a class of Tyrcan mer
chants in Tennessee. It would induce the impor
tation of foreign manufactures, to the destruction
of the manufacturing interests of the State, and so
far it would neutrahzo that principle of the State
constitution, winch provides that our manufactur
ing shall not be taxed beyond inspection fees. He
was, however, in lavor cf taxing privileges tho
privilege of trading. This principle was the basis
f all tarill laws. The committees bill would just
give one half of one per cent on all the merchan-
ize ot the Slate into the hands ot the wholesale
dealers. It was the consumer that paid this tax,
at last; and the application for this change of the
law came not from that direction. He respected
our Tennessee inercrfint?. They were a noble,
h-miuded class ot men: but he could not pro
pitiate them by establishing this monopoly.
Mr isbeinwell replicl, insisting that the tax had
been too heavy on the retailer. Twenty-five dol
lars tax lor a thousand dollars in ttock was too
Mr Holmes reminded the gentleman, that the ob
ject was not to lessen tho amount of tax, but to
quauze it amongst merchants.
Mr Brszelton considered and held, that the pro
posed release of the tax on the retail merchants
would operate badly. Most retailers were their
own importer?, and this was a privilege which
ought never to be infringed on, by a law permit
ting a retailer purchasing within the State and to
sell without tax. He moved the indefinite post
ponement of the whole subject.
Mr. Stovall followed, in favor of the committeo's
bill denying that it was any infringement of the
right to purchase goods abroad. He proposed to
fill several blanks in the bill.
Mr Cook supported the Speaker's amendment
making an application to this case of "Freo trade
and Sailor's rights."
Mr Tipton spoke nt some length in opposition to
tha principle of the Speaker's amendment. The
reason for taxing tho privilege of merchandizing
consisted in tho fact, that he turns hi3 investments
readily perhaps three, four or five times a year
and generally with large profits. The bill was
partial, discriminating againststock traders, and in
lavor of the merchants.
Mr Brazelton sugg03ted the diflicnlty, that coun
try merchants would avciJ the tax of the commit
tee's bill by purchasing after the assessor had been
round. At the request of some gentlemen he with
drew Ins motion to postpone.
Mr Bullen thought tho Treasury of the State
would not justify the reduction on merchandize,
and he moved indefinite postponement.
The Speaker hoped some gentleman would ask
leave to withdraw his amendment.
Mr Looney hoped not. He saw in tho Speaker's
amendment the only just basis of assessment.
He briefly reviewed the committee's bill, objecting
to its exemption of crpital invested in the purchase
of imported stock, as mules, &c. Thousands of
dollars that now ought to be taxed, went scott free.
From such considerations, he urged another refer
ence of the subject, instructing the committeo of
Ways and Means to report an assessor's bill upon
the ba3 s of the Speaker's amendment.
Mr Harr..- desired a direct vote on concurrence
with the committee's bill.
Mr Loonpv's motion having preference, the ques
tion was taken thereon, and it was decided in the
So the bill and amendments were referred again
to the committee on Ways and Meane, and

deed, very few are the diseases in winch a Turgatlvo Medi
cine is not more or less required, and much sickucss aud
suffering might be prevented, if a harmless but effectual Ca
thartic were more freely useil. No person can feel ell whiles
a costive habit of body prevails . besides, it soon generates
serious and often fatal diseases, which might hae been
avoided by the timely and judicious use of a good purgative.
This is alike true of Colds, Feverish uiptoms, and Ililious
derangements : they all tend to bt come or produce the deep
seated and formidable distempers which lad 'he hearses all
over tho Isnd. Hence a reliaulo family lr. sic i of tho first
importance to the public health, and this Pill has been per
fected with consummate skill to meet that demand. An ex
tensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, l'rofesors and Ta
tients, basehown results surpassing any thins hitherto known
ol any medicine. Cures have been effected beyond belief,
were they not substantiated by jiereons of such exalted xosi
tion and character as to forbid the suspicion of untruth.
Among tho many eminent gentlemen who have testified
In favor of thea Fills, we may mention :
Dr. A. A. HAYES, Analytical Chemist of Boston, and
Stale Assajer of Massachusetts, whose high professional
character is endorsed by tho
Hon. KDWAKO EVKKhTT, Senatorof the United States.
KOBKKT C. WINT11KOP, Ex-Speaker of the House or
ABBOT I' liAWKKNCK, Minister lMcn-tolinjlind.
tJOHN B. FITZPATKICK. Catholic Bishop of Boston.
Also Dr. J. It. CHILTON, Fracticat Chemist of :cw
York City, endorsed by
Hon. W. I,. MAKCY, Secretary of State.
WM. B. ASTOK, tho richest inanln America.
S. LKLAM) & CO., Proprietors of the Metropolitan Ho
tel ; and others.
Hid space permit, wo could give many hundred certifi
cates from all parts where tho Pills have been ued, but
evidence oven more convincing than tho experience of emi
nent public men, is found in lueiruffectsupon trial.
These Pills, the result kf long investigation und study, are
offered to the public as the best and mo-t complete which the
present statcof medical science can afford. Theyare com
pounded not of the drugs themselves, but of the mediclial
virtues only of Vegf table remedies extracted by chemical
process In a stato ol purity, and combined together in such a
manner as to insure the best results. This system of compo
sition for medicines has been found in the Cherry Pectoral
and Pills both, to produce a more efficient remedy than bad
hitherto been obtained by any process. The reason is per
fectly obvious. While by the old mode of composition every
modicino is burdened with more or less of acrimoniocs and
injurious qualities, by this each individual virtue only that is
desired for the curalivo effect is present. All the inert and
obnoxious qualities of each substance employed are left be
hind, the curative virtues only being retained Hence it is
self-evident the effects fchould provo ns they have proved,
more purely romedi.il, and the Pills a surer, more powerful
antidote to disease than any other niei'icine known to the
As It I" frequently expedient that my medicines should bo
taken under the counsel of an attending phsician. and as he
could not proierly judge of a remedy without knowing its
composition, 1 have supnlied the accurate Formulae by which
both my Pectoral and Fills are made to the whole body of
practitioners in tho United States and British American
Provinces. If, however, there should be any one who lias
not received tliem, they will bo promptly forwarded by mall
to his request.
Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how fewwould
be taken if their composition was known ! Their life con
sists in their mjstery. I have no injotcric-s.
Tho composition of my preparations is laid open to all
men; and all who arc competent to judge on the subject
freely acknowledge their cnnviclloni of their intrinsic merits
The Cherry Pectoral was pronounced by srlentlllc men to be
a wonderful medicine before its effects were known. Many
eminent physicians have declared the same thingof my Pills,
and even more confidently, and are willing to certify that
their anticipations wero more than realized by their effects
They operate by their powerful inflnonceon the interna

and other organs of the body, restoring their irregular action
to health, and by correcting, wherever they exist, such de

belief in Its superiority over all other articles with which 1

an evacuation in tha same manner as the bowels are moved
by eating something taatdisagrees with tbe system. Tb.j Is
truly an unnatural uitthod of restoring the sisteiu to heat h.
