Two questions are presented for our con sideration: 1st. Has this oetirt, under its organization and constitutional restrictions, bcine an an- pellate court, tho right to award the writ of manuamus 2d. If this court has the right, do the facts presented in this petition make such a case as would authorize the issuance of 'an alternate'taandamus f - This is the first application, so far as we have been awe to learn from the reports of the decisions in - this court, in the judicial history of the State, of an application to thii court Uftaward a mandamus against a Circuit Jndcc, to compel him to appear and aliow cause why he slioiild nol sign a bill of exceptions. taken In the trial of a cause be fore him. it Is a question of great importance to ' the citizens. If this court has not the juris diction to grant tho writ, tliero should be some legMative action, for without it the citizens or suitors would be without reme dy, as wo nave no statute authorizing a mandamiM against a Circuit Judge in such oases. Section 2,903 of the Code provides ; " The fects of the case being fairly stated in the bill of exceptions, the Judge shall sign the' same, which thereupon become a part ot the record of the cauie." A mandamus is defined to beliy the com mon law writers of England, a common isHiingjin the King's, name fromithc court of "King's Bench and directed to any erdn, corporation, or inferior court of Jurisdic tion, within the King's dominions, requir ing them to do some particular thing there in specified, which pertains lo their office and duty, and which the court of King's Bench Ives previously determined, "or at least supposes to Ik consonant to righ t and justice. Btackstoue adds "it issues lo the Judges fny 'Inferior court commanding them to do Justice according to the power of their ofhee whenever the same is de layed." 8 BlacksVme's Commentaries, 110, Jb frcL 191. Chief Justice Marshall, in the lost. case referred to,Kavs: "We think it apparent that this definition, and this de . .saription tn wlilcli it is applicable by the court of King's Bench as suiervising all inferior tribunals extends to the case of the "refusal by an Inferior court to sign a bill of exceptions, when it is an act that ertains , to their office ami duty, though-this right was never exercised by the court of KiBg" , Beneli in issuing a "mandamus, yel the -power clearly existed." This Supreme "Gourtwas established by the ttuwtltutiou, in 18S4, and it is provided in the cointitR-' tion, "It silmW iwsses such appellate and other jurisdiction as is now conferred by law on the Supreme Court, under such rekric- tions and regulations as may from time to' ' time be preserlbed by law' Previous to - the fonnation af (his court by the consti tution, the Supreme Court wis created by Legislative will, and in 1800 by an aet of tho Legislature, tho Supreme Court was or ganized with appellate jurisdiction. The provision of the constitution of the State in organising this court is very simi lar in language to the constitution of the United States, under which the Supreme Court is established. In the cause referred te ef sr parte Crane, In which this provision of-the constitution of the United States: was under consideration, th" court sav " A mandamus to an inferior court of the ! United States is in the nature of an appel- late jurisdiction." The ease now under consideration is, to compel a (Ircait Judge to sign a bill of exceptions to make it a Eart af the record of the case of which we ave now the jurisdiction. The object and purpose of the writ is to carry out and pcrfeot the right of the party appealing. The law authorizes the appeal upon the ex ecution of the bond and tiling of the re cord, tlii oeurt acquired Jurisdiction.

In the case of Miller vs. Rogres, 9th Hump. 286, Tnrley, Judge, in commenting Upon the facts, where it was urged the Judge had refused to incorporate into a bill of ex? captions parts of the evidence, said : Wo must examine the facts here as contained in thcbill of exceptions and not upon a supposititious conception of what they might have been it the bill of exceptions had been drawn up as'tbey shouldhave. been. If a jndgff refused te Btgn a 131 of exceptions it tVno came of error, the ovly redress it by mandamut. "In a cose properly made out a fortiori, is this to when he will siji an imperfect bill of exceptions' and none other." Judee Caruthersln his history of a law suit, 889, in commenting on this principle, tays: "If the judge refuses to sign it, the remedy of the party is to apply lo the bu prenie Court for a mandamus.

Though thk has not tne force of a judicial decision, jet the lanre experience of the author with the jurisprudence of the State, and his high character as a jurist" gives weight t ns opinion upon this question. The right hag been rwiijntly exercised by tile Supreme Courts of gjlier States. lu isew lork the Question was fullv nr-M gued before the Supreme Court of that State, and the writ awarded. 6th .Johnson's re port, 279. In id" Scammadt, III. report, 189. a case came before that court. Tim question was well considered the authori ties were reviewed, and upon mature deli-! Iteration, aa appears from the great number of authorities cited, -the writ was awarded $ but not having the constitution -of those States before us we cannot .say whether these courts had only appellate jurisdiction. We are of opinion under the appellate powers of this court.it has the riehl to award tlie writ p mandamus. . . Second. Having the jurisdiction, has the petitioner presented such a state of facts as will authorize the court ti award (he writs? and did the Circuit Judge err in refusing to sign' the bill of exceptions; and to determine this qufestion we must look to the petition and .the facts embraced therein. He overs, on the 15th of February, 1SGG, he entered his motion to Ret aside tho judg ment of Brownlow against him and vacate) the proceedings. At a subsequent day 6f the term he entered a similar motion, "flnd through a press of business of the eohrfc the motions were continued until the June term, 186G. During tho session, the first motion-to set mido the judgement was ar gued by the counsel, and overruled by (he court. The petition was not filed upon the hear ing of this motion, nor affiidavits read -or presented to the court. At a isnbsequfent day of tho term the second juption, similar in character to the first was called up. The petition was not filed ho Bays in his affida vit. We had the petitions ahd affidavits in support of the motion and offered to read them to the court, bnt the court refused to hear them, and said he would sign no bill of exceptions in the case, though tlie court had overruled the first motion made to vacate and set aside thejildgement. He presented the second motion to bo entered of retord at the February term, 18C6, and continued it to tho June term, 18CQ, and entertained H and acted upon it, ' Thongh this was irregular, tho petitioner had the right in support of it to present his peti tion and affidavits, and if the court refused to hear them, he had a right to have them incorporated in the bill of exceptions. Though the first motion was overruled, it was just Preceding the second motion and at the same terra. The court entertained the motion and acted upon it, and jt was his duty lob ave heard such petition and affidavit as were offered by counsel in support of it. The declaration Of the Judge, as stated .in the petition, that ho would sign no' bill, of exceptions in the cause wascooclusive Upon the petition, and his only remedy is by mandamus to compel him. "The law pro vides, in judgments by atfaehriitnt against non-resident debtors, or where (hoi party has merely removed himself or property from, the State, the judgment may be Bet a-ide within twelve months upon good cause shown." The petitioner states hp was a non-resident. We can only look to Hie petition for the facts in this motion. Being a non-resident he Tiad the right with in twelve months from tho rendition of the judgment to make bis application to set it aside, and in support of that motion to fjle his petition and affidavits, that the court might judge of the Miffieiengy of the cause shown, and if the court should be of opin ion they were not sufficient, he had the right to have them incorporated in his bill of exceptions and made a part of the re cord. In determining this we can only look to the faaw stated in the petition and the affi davits supporting it. The law required thp Judge to sign the bill of exceptions if the racw are eprrecjty set out. The dcclarationof-ih5 Judge, " he would not sign any bill of exceptions," as appeals from the statement of the petition, were riot warranted by law. It is our dutv as a revising court, hav ing jurisdiction of the case, to see fliat every suitor in this court, has Ox tended to him the rights. and privileges to whirlr he in entitled by the laws of the land. Tlie case having been brought to this court by appeal, and it appearing from the petition supported, .bv affidavits that the Hon. E. 'JTCSinff! refused (onign the bill of exceptions made and presented on the trial of the' cause, that the matters and facts therein slated might be made a part of the record of said cause, and the plain tiff averrine in his petition that thev are material to his rigbu in this court, and we are therefore of opinion that an alternative mandamus sliouht imue to the Hon. E. T. Hall, .ludge, etc., to appear before this HKt at .its next rccular term, and show cause why he should not sign the bill of exceptions- tendered in tins case. SUACKKI.VOKP. Judge. .

The large towns are patrolled, the police armed, the troops fur nished, as far as practicable, with breach loaders The" commander of the forces is on the ground, and every thing is ready to crush, to stamp out, tboinsurrcction when it makes its appearance. Fierce and terri ble are flie threats of the English ionrnals. The Irish are warned that the English with all their cant of philanthropy, have not changed their natures since the remorseless days of Elizabeth, or Cromwell, or of '93 ; that they will deal with rebels in Ireland as they dealt with them In -India, and later in Jamaica. There is a cold-blooded ferocity in their threats, or warning? of the inevita ble consequences Of a rebellion on British soil, that contrasts strangely with English sympathy, more or Jess actively expressed, for all rebels but their own. It is a fact that Ireland is in a state of terror and alarm, and that there is a gene ral belief that there will be an outbreak be fore Christmas. Many suppose" that Ste phens is in Ireland, and tins belief is doing almost as much to excite and terrify as his actual presence, .hven colliers on the coast are searched to find him, or discover aims and ammunition.

Worse than all, as the 'limes points out to ns, in the midst of all these signs of evil we see and hear nothing of the loyal ieople of Ireland. There are no meetings, North or South, to support the government and takj measures for defense. Even the Protestants, Episcopal and Presbyterian, make no sign. Is it apathy or is it terror? Isverything is left to the government: and the government, we are assured, will stern ly do its duty. The Morning Herald says: "ine rumors 01 fcnian enterprises in Ireland have at length taken a definite shape, and there is reason to believe that, in a lew days, we shall he, unhappily, in volved in a serious contest for the sunrema cvof British rale in the neichborinir island.

The prospect is sufficiently melancholy, but as there is no escape from it, perhaps the sooner it is realized the better. A few weeks of sharn fiehlintr in the South and West are, perhaps, after all, not the worst calamity which can happen to Ireland." lhe tory orcans in this matter only chime in with the Tones, Post, Pall Mall Gazette, Daily Neves, with Eocliah journals of every shade of politics.

"If England can 'do nothing elsb," we are told, "she knows how, to suppress a rebellion." A special London teleeratu to the Dublin Freeman's Journal has the the following: London, .Nov. 30 evening. It js posi tively stated that thegovernmenthas received reliable infonriation that the Head Centre, James Stephens, if not already in London Is hourly expected to arrive here. A re ward of 2,000 has consequently been is sued for his apprehension, and constables' in plain clothe?, provided with photographs of the fugitive, have been dispatched to all the likely ports pt disembarkation and, to the various railway stations. THE REWARD FOR III3 CAPTURE. From the London Globe, Nov. 30. The announcement of the departure; of James Stephens, the Fenian Head Centre trom America, and of his intended return to Ireland, has been met on the part of the government by an offer of the largo reward of 2,000 for his apprehension that is, 1,000 for such information as will lead to his apprehension, and a further 1,000 to any ono who may arrest Stephens. This notorious conspirator is described as a man about forty ycarsof age, five feet seven inches higji, stontwith broad, high shoulders, fair hair, bald all round the top of his head, wears all his board, which is sandy, slightly tinged with gray, and long under chn, broad ferchead, tender eyes, and has a pe culiar habit of closing the left eye when speaking ; high cheek bones, rather good countenance, and his hands and leet arc re markably small and well formed. The government deserve? great credit for the promptitude with which they have ncted in this mattter, and the largeness of the re ward offereil jnstifies the hgpe that if ever Stephens again steps his foot on British soil he will be arrested before he can go 'to Ireland to renew XliO trouble which Fen'mn- Jsni has produced in that island. THE STATE II V.ST OF MAKIL', OX WHICH StmnATTvVAS AltKESTKh. The foreign newc by the cable stated that the man who gave the information which led to the arrest o( Surratt is a French Cana dian named St. farie. ITc was formerly a Union soldier, and afterwards perved in the Papal Zouaves. Both he and Surratt, it .is alleged, were in lore with the same lady in Washington, and St. Marie betrayed Surratt through jealousy. The following is said to Je tho affidavit of St. Marie, On which Sur ratt was. first arrested while serving ai a Papal Zouave: " I was living in Maryland, at a wnall village called Kllangnwan, or Little I eras, about twenty-Cve or thirty miles from Bal timore, where 1 was engaged as teacher for a criod of about five months. I there and then got acquainted with Lewis J. Weicb man and John II. Surratt, who came to that locality to pay a .visit to the parish priest, Kt that first interview' a great deal was said about tho war and slavery, the sentiments expressed by these two individu als being more than Focessionist. In the course of the conversation I remember Sur ratt to have said that President Lin coln would certainly pay for all the men that were slain during the war. About a month after 1 removed to Wash ington, at tlie instigation -of Weichman, anil got a situation as tutor , where he was himself engaged. Surratt visited us weekly, and he once offered to send me South, but I declined. I did not remain more than a month at Washington, noticing able to agree with Weichraan, and enlisted in the army of the North, as stated in my first statement in writing to General King. 1 have met Surratt in Italy, at a small town called Vellclri. lie is now" known under the. name of John Watson. I recognized him before he made himself known to me, and told him privately, 'You aro John Surratt, tho person I have known in Mary land.' He acknowledged he was, and beg ged of uie to keep the thing secret. After some conversation we spoke of the unfor tunate affair of the assajtiination of Presi dent Lincoln, and these were his words ; ' Damn the Yankees, they have killed my mother. But I have done them as much harm as I could. We.havc killed Lincoln, the niggers' friend.1 He thenvaid, speak- ! ing of his mother. ' Mad it not been for me and that coward, Weichman, my mother would be living now. It was fear made him speak; had he kept his tongue, there was no danger for him. But if ever I return to America and meet him elsewhere, I shall kill him.' He then said he was in the secret service of the South, and Weich man. who was in some department J,Ak neail- in afA1 mniM hf Inn rlia- ''thence to Richmond Speaking of the NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, murder, he sold thev had acted under the j orders of men who'are not yet known,some ' of whom are still in New York and others ' of whom ai a Iondon. I am aware that money is sent i. . to him yet from London. Wherf T left Canada, he said, 1 had but little money, but I had letter for a party in London X was in disguise, with dyed hair and false beard ; that party jent me to a hotel, where Tie told me to remain till I would hear from him; after a few weeks he'eame and pro posed to me to go to Spain, but 1" declined, and asked to go to Paris. He gave him seventy pounds, with a letter of introduc tion, to a party there, who sent him to Rome, where he joined the Zouaves. He saya he can get money in Rome' at r any time. I believe that he is protected by the clergy, and that the .murder was the result of a deep laid plot, not only against the life of President Lincoln, but against the existence of the republic, as we 'are aware that the priesthood and royally are; and always kave been, opposed to liberty. That such men as Surratt, Booth, Weichraan and others, should, of their own" ac cord, plan and execute the infernal plot which resulted in the death of President Lincoln, is impossible. There are others behind the curtain who have to make these scoundrels act. I have also asked Win if he knew Jefferson Davis. He Said not, but that he had acted under instructions of persons under his immediate orders. Being asked if Jeff. Davis had anything to do with the assassination, ho said: '1'am not going tcr tell yon.' My impression is that he brought the order from Richmond, as he was in the! habit of going thcreVeekly. He tnnst have wished the others; to do it, for when the event taok place he told me be was in New' Ydrkv prepared to fly as soon as the deed vras done. He says he does not regret what has taken place, and that he will visit New York in a year or two, as there Li a heavy shipping firm there who had much to do with the South, and he is surprised that they have not been sus pected. This is the exact truth of what I Know about Surratt. More I conld not learn, oeing afraid to awaken his suspicions, and further I do not say.'
