of citizens, held on the 12th inet , and con
curred in by the Council on the 14th inst.,
we attended the annual meeting of the
stockholders of the Evansville, Henderson
and Nashville Kail road Company, held at
ilopkinsTilIe, Ky., on the loth inst
I he reports of the .President and of the
Secretary and Treasurer and Engineer were
submitted and read, and ordered to be
printed the report of the Treasurer being
referred to a committee of stockholders for
examination and comparison with the
books and vouchers.
The several reports seemed to be entirely
satisfactory to the meeting, and the opin
ion seemed to be very general, if not unan
imous, that Gen. Boyle had so far accom
plished all that was possible with the
means at his disposal, and that, if properly
aided and sustained, he would carry the
work on to nnal completion.
1 lie road is completed from Isashville,
northward, about sixty-nine (G9) miles, to
a point about four miles distant fronvllop
kiusville, and from Henderson, southward,
five miles, and rails on hand sufficient to
complete about one mile and a half addi
tional ; the parts completed being about
one-half of the entire distance between
Nashville and Henderson.
At one end of the line, some fear has
been expressed that upon the completion
of the line from Nashville to the coal fields,
north of Hopkinsville, the friends of the
road at Nashville and intermediate points,
having secured access (o the coal fields,
wonld feel but little interest in the com
pletion of the road (o the Ohio river, but
at our interview with the stockholders and
delegates, especially those from Nashville,
we are satisfied that they contemplate no
thing short of the completion of the entire
Whilst it is irne that the citizens of Nash
ville are deeply interested in Becurinc a
supply of coal for fuel and manufacturing
purposes, tbey, in common with t!io.o at all
intermediate points, look lo this road as
their only direct Northern roule, connect
ing them with the Northern lines to Chi
cago and the Atlantic coast.
Ve are therefore of the opinion, from
what we have seen of the spirit which ani
mates its friends over the entire line from
Evansville to Nashville, and from our own
observation of the importance and absolute
necessity of the work, that its completion
in an assumed fact; and nn (he city of
Evansville has already agreed to subscribe
and take three hundred thousand dollars
of tho capital stock of the company, on
terms already agreed upon, wo think that
without increasing the amount of the in
vestment, we may, by a modification of the
terms, materially shorten the time required
for its completion. We left Hopkinsville
after the adjournment of the meeting, and
passed over the line, so far as completed,
and arrived at Nashville at about 1 o clock,
A. M., of the 19th inst., and returned home
by the Cumberland and Ohio rivers.

Emtor3 Bulletin. An organization
known as the Ku-KIux Kla.n has for some
time caused much excitement in this State.
By some it has been treated seriously, but
a large majority of people have supposed it
a myth. In order lo satisfy myself of the
objects of the organization, I have for
several weeks traded its members to their
;place of meeting, and becoming convinced
that it was my duty to break it up in this
city, I to-night captured about twenty
young men as they came from their Den
on Beal street. Upon one of them I found
papcra which may be of interest to the pub
lic, and which I hand you for publication.
The names of the members of the
;"Uraud Oyclopnan Connctl" found aning
the records, are tor the present withheld.
I have no comments to make upon the
records furnished for publication, but.leave
the public to judge of the effect upon the
State if such an organization is permitted
to carry out the objects set forth in the
oath. " S. B. Beaumont,
Superintendent M, P.
The name of this den shall be the Su
preme Cydopean Council, and its officers
shall consist of a Grand Cyclops, a Vice
Grand Cyclops and a Secretary. All funds
coming into the association shall be under
the control of the three officers above
named, and two directors to be elected, who
shall act as a supervising council, and their
decision upon all questions shall be final.
The meetings shall be called by the Grand
Cyclops, when he deems it necessary, and
shall be done through the papers in the
cipher of the organization.
The object of this organization is for the
purpose of protecting the people of the
South from the band of murderers and
robbers now preying upon them, even to
the last resort assassination and we
pledge ourselves one to the other that
nothing shall be allowed to deviate us from
this noble object.
Entrance to the lodge room will be oh
tained through the medium of two raps in
quick succession, to be fpllowed by two
slow ones. The Inside Sentinel will say
"our trust;" the outside applicant will
answer, "is in God." He will then be ad
mitted, and upon giving the grip aa de

All candidates shall be balloted for in
open council, and if any applicant receive
three black balls he cannot be admitted.
As soon as a candidate is elected, he shall
be introduced by a brother appointed by
the Grand Cyclops. The members of the
lodge, all shrouded, will rise and receive
him and conduct him into the middle of
the room. Each member of the order shall
have a drawn dagger or other weapon in
his hand, pointed toward the candidate,
and each member will be required in the
presence of the candidate, to swear that
should said candidate prove recreant to the
oath which he ia about to take that he will
kill him, and make it hia specal duty to
do so on the first safe opportunity. As soon
as the shrouded brothers have" taken the
above oath, the following charge and
oath shall be administered by the Grand
Cyclops, or, in his absence, the Vice
"Here in the presence of this skull and
the members here assembled, I solemnly
swear to be true to the order, to its mem
bers individually and collectively, and
Bhould I ever, by sign, word, or deed, be
tray a secret, or a member of the Brother
hood, that the skull upon which I now
look may he a counterpart of mine, and I
hope that all the social relations which I
now enjoy may be sundered, that hon
esty in men or virtue in females may not
be known in my family and generation,
and that all who own ray name shall ha
branded as dogs and harlots. I further
swear to obey implicitly the orderi of the
Grand Cyclops, regularly issued through
his Council, and as soon as I receive an or
der to fulfill it. I again swear that, should
a member of this order be in danger, that,
even at the risk of my life, I will defend
and endeavor to save him; that I will
give no outward sign or hint that a person
may know of the existence of the 1C. K.
K., unless authorized by the Grand Cyclops,
and that each member of this order, as
soon as the sign is given, I will recognize,
defend and protect as a brother. I further
swear that 1 will, tinder and in all circimi
stances, bear true allegiance to the South
and her interests, as interpreted by the Su
preme Cyclopean Council, and when I re
receive its orders, should I be even in the
embraces of my wife, I will leave her to obey
them. 1 further swear that all Radicals
and negroes, who have placed themselves
opposite to the interests of the owners of
the soil of Tennessee shall forever be my
enemy, and that under no circumstance
will 1 have other connection with them, if
I can help it than lo 'welcome them
with bloody hands to hospitable graves.'
That my family, and the family of a Radi
cal shall never interchange visits, and I
further pray that the God of Ihe South
land, whom 1 now invoke, shall strike me
dead should 1 ever, either in letter or in
spirit, infringe upon the things set forth in
this oath. To all of which I swear in
honesty of heart nnd sincerity of purpose.
So help me God."
In regard to the grip, your committee
would report that the simplest plan, nnd
at the same time the best, would be a
common meeting of palms,at the same
time using the interlocking of Utile fing
ers, and a pressure of thumbs on tiie back
of the hand. Your committee will practi
cally explain it. The word of danger we
would suggest to be for the present, "Eli
Lami Salxicthani," which we wonld recom
mend lo all members to commit lo their
memory. In regard to other things sub
mitted to your committee, we would ask
for further time, and would excuse our
selves, upon the plea that one of our mem
bers has !een sick. All of which is re
One of that curious class of men, the
statisticians, has taken the pains to ascer
tain the number f persons struck by
lightning in several countries in Europe.
In France the average number of persons
struck each year is eighty-one oot of a
population of 33,000,000; in Germany,
Fcventy-two out of 47,000,000 ; in Sweden,
eleven out of 4,000,000 ; in Saxony, sir
out of 2,000,000. He ascertained also that
the lightning is so ungallant as to strike
more women every year than men.
A heart-rendiso affair occurred at
Bloomvale, New York, at seven o'clock on
Tuesday evening, March 31. At that hour
a little girl bctwren three and four years of
age, was observed running from a tenement
house enveloped in flames, which were not
extinguished until her clothing was en
tirely consumed. The poor little thing was
literally roasted alive. She retained her
senses to the Jast, and expired singing,
"Mama, I'm going home to a better land."
She was a daughter of Mr. Daniels. The
mother had left the child alone to go for a
pail of water.

Drowned. Two negroes were drowned
at Harrison on Snnday, the 5th inst. They
were crossing the river in a canoe for the
purpose of fishing. When nearly in the

the parties were drowned before assistance
could be rendered.

Washington over, they would all be happy.

The Frost. The nights and mornings
for a few days past have been disagreeably
cool. Yesterday morning the small ponds
were covered with a perceptible coating of
ice. To what extent the fruit has been
damaged we cannot say, but the general
opinion is that the injury is not serious.
The garden crops show but little sign of
damage. KnoxrillePressand Herald April,
Sudden Death. About 3 o'clock yester
day afternoon Mrs. S.H.McClanahan,famil
iarly known as "Aunt Polly," one of the
oldest residents of the place, without a mo

se.it in her porch. She was conversing

ItAiutOAD Accident. On Sunday night
as the down mail train on the East Ten
nessee and Georgia railroad was proceed
ing from Cleveland lo McDonald's, the
tender ran off the track near McDonald's.
The engineer barely succeeded in stopping
the train in time to prevent it going over
the stone bridge at Kennedy's creek,
twenty-five feet high. The train was un
able to get to Chattanooga, and relumed.
Knozville Press and Herald, April 7.
Burglary Audacious Coolness. On
Saturday night last the smoke-hou30 of
Mrs. Sally McBath, residing on Beaver
creek, in this county, was broken open and
some three hundred pounds of bacon stolen.
The thieves, after securing the meat, then
went to the dwelling house, entered the
dining room by raising the window and
made quite a hearty meal taken from the
cupboard. They lighted a candle, used
sugar in their coffee and seem to have made
a "square meal" with perfect coolness.
After stealing a quantity of butter and
eggs from the house, they proceeded to the
stable of Capt. J. C. Chiles, who resides
about two hundred yards from Mrs. Mc
Bath's, and took therefrom a very fine sor
rel mare, on which they evidently loaded
their plunder and decamped. The animal
was found near Knoxville, covered with
grease and evidently in a nearly worn out
condition. There is no clue as yet to the
thieves. About two weeks ago a quantity
of bacon and the horse of James R. Mc
Bath, who resides in the same neighbor
hood, were stolen. The hor3e in this case
was found the next day in the direction of
Knoxville, almost ruined from hard travel
ing and over-loading. Knoxrille Press and
Herald, April 7.
The Gallatin Examiner fears that the
fruit crop ha3 been greatly injured in
Sumner County Finances. A report
was made on Monday last by the Commis
sioners appointed by the County Court in
charge of the railroad interests of Sumner
county. Messrs. W. S. Monday, J. J.
Turner and Geo. W. Allen were the Com
missioners. The report shows that they
have received $S0,9G9 77, and paid out
$70,997 94. They have redeemed the
county and railroad bonds to the amount
of $277,300, leaving outstanding, $22,700.
To pay this the county has in Louisville
and Nashville railroad bonds $41,504. It
will thus be seen that we are in good finan
cial condition, and can complete our court
house repairs and have something still on
hand. Qallatin Examiner, April 7.
Counterfeit nickel five cent pieces are in

THE I.ATE EXCITEMENT AT OAI.
LATIN. T'ho Gallatin Examiner of the 9th
inst refers to tho late exciting scenes at
that place ns follows:
"The ring-leader, Phillips, on Thursday
last was busy recruiting. He was in the
lower portion of the county, on the Fair
view and Franklin plantations, and several
negroes were seduced from their plows
by his promises of two dollars a day and
employment until the Presidential elec
tion. He had gotten his roll up to about
one hundred, we learn. No higher proof
of the peaceful disposition of our citizens
could be given than the fact that this
breaker of the peace, accompanied by an
other bummer, was permitted to ride about
through the county activoly engaged in
raising a force of negroes to murder our
citizens, and not be knocked in the head
or shot down by some of our outraged and
insulted people. The fellow must cer
tainly have the confidence of Napoleon in
his luck, or is devoid of brains, but so it
is, he goes unharmed. On Friday, our
neighbor Simon, the butcher and a good
Conservative who owns the fori, gave
Phillips notice that he must be paid two
dollars pet day for the occupation of his
fortifications, or Itave, and, thinking the
price asked too high, wo imagine, left, and
moved his negroes over into the fields
aliont it. They would disperse at
night to their lodging places about
the town and vicinity, and reassem
ble next morning. On Saturday an order
came from Nashville from BrOwnloW, or
his deputy son-in-law Boynfon, or his dep
uty somebody else, to disband and return
the arms, and they were boxed up and
sent. This did not, however, embrace a
gpod lot of muskets which was already
here in the hands of the militia of last
year, and had been given to them by Mc
Kinly. They hold these yet.
"And thusended occurrences which came
very closely upon bloodshed. But for the
extraordinary prudence and forebearance
of our citizens we cannot estimate the
amount of bloodshed which would have
resulted The Radical ringleaders have
learned a lesson, we trust that will last
them many a day. If they dare again to
trifle with and openly insult our people
when they are quietly pnrsning their avo
cations, harming no one submitting to the
unjust laws, as galling as they are, and pre
sume to-thrust bayonets at their throats, in
hands of negroes, we wam them that the
consequences will be fearful. Not all the
outside power on the continent will avert
a catastrophe which will be short, sharp,
fearful and decisive"
The Senate has passed the new cily
charter for Washington, which establishes

woman, Jane, Duches3 of Gordon, recruit

Duncan Mackenzie, a veteran of Waterloo,

He delighted in relating how he kissed the
Duchess in taking the shilling from be

known as the Ninety-second. The old

of hia countrymen, is said to have proved
effectual. He said in reference to the un
fortunate elector who should vote against
them, " Let no man speak to him. Let no
woman salute him 1" Gilbert Stuart, the
portrait painter, is said to have once met a
lady in the streets of Boston, who accosted
him with : Ah I Mr. Stuart, I have just
seen your likeness, and kissed it because it
was so much like you." "And did it kiss
you in return?" " Why, no." "Then,"
said the gallant painter " it was not like
Some of our readers, who are not so
young as they have been, may remember
the famous Yankee kiss, and kiss of the
last King of England before he came to
hhi estate. While in New York, the
Prince called at a barber's shop lo be
shaved. When the operation was com
pleted, he stepped up to the barber's wife,
who chanced to be present, and giving her
a kiss, remarked ; " There, now you can
say you have been kissed by a member of
the royal family." The barber, greatly
incensed by what he chose to receive as an
insult, seized the prince, and helping him
out of the shop with his foot, exclaimed:
"There, now you can say that you have
received a royal kick from an American
Chevalier Bunsen, who rose from an
humble position in life fo great honor, was
a man of vast saroir. but little erudition. As a
theologian, the charaeter to which he moat
aspired, he was severely criticised by the
celebrated Dr. Merle D'Aubigne. The two
savans met at Berlih at the Evangelican
Alliance held several years ago. Bunsen
kissed Merle; of course the polite Genevan
could not return the compliment. Great
was the ado about the " kiss ot reconcilia
tion, as tlie Hermans cafled it, much to
the annoyance of Dr. Merle, who had no i

that, but the Professor meant nothing
The Rev. Sidney Smith says : " We are
in favor of a certain amount of shyness
when a kiss is proposed, but it should not
bo too long, and, when the fair one gives
it, let it be administered with' warmth nnd
energy let there be a soul in it. If she
close her eyes and sigh immediately after
it, the effect is greater. She should be
careful not to slobber a kiss, but give it as
a humming-bird runs his hill into a huny
suckle deep but delicate. Thero is much
virtue in a kiss when well delivered. We
have the memory of one we received in our
mouth, which lasted us forty years, and we
believe it will be one of the last things we
shall think of when we die."
At Bologne, during the reception of
Queen Victoria, June 1S55, a number of
English ladies, in their anxiety to see
everything, pressed with such force against
the soldiers who were keeping the line,
that the latter, in some instances, were
obliged to give way, and generally were
to use the expression of our policemen
impeded in the execution of their duty."
The officer in command observing the stale
of affairs, shouted out, "one roll of the
drum if they don't keep bark, kiss Ihem
all. " After the first sound of the drum,
the English ladies took to flight. " If they
had been French," said a Parisian journal,
"they would have remained to a woman."
iN'a recent conllagration at Walerford,
Pennsylvania, an old blockhouse, a relic of
anle-revolntionary time?, waa destroyed.
Il was the lant of the old line of forts
which, one hundred and twenty yearn ago,
reached from Erie lo Piltoburgh. In 1753
it was visited by Washington, who wa9
sent by Governor Dinwiddie, of Virginia,
on a miftflion to tfee French commander,
Sf. Pierre, to inquire the designs of the
French in occupying a territory which be
longed tfl the English government.
PRICES OP STOCK.
A paper prepared at the Agricultural
Department at Washington shows that the
prices of farm stock, compared with last
year's estimates, have decreased throughout
the West, except in the item of cattle. The
reduction is generally lea, however, than
in ihe Eastern Slates, and a few of the
Southern Stales. The most marked decline
is in sheep, as follows : In Ohio, $2 C5
from $3 35 last year for sheep more than
one year old ; Indiana, S2 01 from $2 C3 ;
Illinois, $2 39 from $3 39; Missouti, 52 35
from $2 52; Iowa, $2 29 from $3 25;
Minnesota, $2 89 from $3 94 ; Wisconsin,
$2 86 from $3 86 ; Michigan, $2 70 from
$3 72. The decline in numbers is also
noticeable but is greater in Ohio and
Michigan than further West. Thp aggre
gate decline in the year averages thirty
million dollars. In horses and mnle?, a de
crease in prices appears, varying in the
principal Western States from ?2 to S7 per
head. The present average in round num
bers : for horses above three years old, is
$107 in Ohio, $90 in Indiana, $105 in
Illinois, $113 in Iowa, $143 in Wisconsin,
$126 in Michigan. Ab heretofore, the
prices of stock are higher in newer and
more Northern and Western States, than
in Ihe Ohio Valley. In Missouri, Illinois
and Indiana, the average for oxen and
Other cattle is a little higher than last year.
The difference is not bo apparent in cowa.
In Ohio, Wisconsin and Iowa, prices are
substantially the same as last year, except
a elight decline in cows in Ohio, and a fall
of $3 per head in Wisconsin, on the aver
age. A fall of from 12 to 20 per cent, in
stock hogs, is reported in Ohio, Michigan,
Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, with a
very slight 'decline in Iowa and Missouri.
