One ropy, ore ymr t- One roi-y, ii month M0 Ten covip. me yer ' I rcy rop.ri. ene ycur W Or all natural powers water is the most appaling and destructive. An earthquake is a more frightful mani festation of force, but it is limited in its extent, and not of frequent occur rence. There are other natural phe nomena, that are exceptions iu many respects, but the frequency, extent find character of freshets considered, it is safe to adhere to the statement first made. We have of late had great destruction of life and prop crtv by tires. Chicago and l'.oston. and Chicago in its second visitation bv the hre hend. are friiditful examples ot the destructive ami almost irresistible power of fire Hut man's ingenuity has devised means for contending successfully with it. Those wonderful little ra chines t hat pour a torrent of water to any height, ami on the shortest no tice, have made it possible tor an experienced organization to hold within limit the worst tire we nave ever had on this continent. Hut what ingenuity or human pow er can control or resist the angry, swollen, swift, rolling sea ot water that once, at least, in every decade. sweeps down our valleys and out into the Great Father of Waters ? Degin ning high up in the coves and mountains of Virginia and East Ten nessee, gathering momentum and vol ume at every rivulet, creek and river, who can picture the consternation and destruction the freshet leaves in its path? On it sweeps, down our rich valley, over our fertile bottoms, past thriving towns and populous cit ies into the Ohio and thence down the Mississippi, over its broken levees, o.it into the rice and sugar plantations of Louisiana, through the crowded streets of the Queen City of the South and into the Ou'.f of Mexi co. For a thousand miles, into a hundred thousand hearts it bar, carried terror and suifering. The fisherman's hut by the river bank, the miller's peaceful home by the still .'.owing stream, the farmer's house on the fer tile river bottoms, the crowded tene ments on the busy levee in the cities, all tell their story of loss and anxie ty and suffering. The loss of bridges, and railroad tracks, and mills, and mill darns, Mid lumber yards, and miles of fenc ing, and more valuable property in the growing cities, from the head waters of the Holston, v.vA Clinch, and French Iiroad rivers to New Orleans will foot up to millions. The Bufferings of those who .have lost much will be known, but in many a cabin on the rivers and creeks tiie waters have carried off all the tenants owned, and their story will never be heard. Hut few, perhaps, cf the thou sands who have watched from our bridges and river banks the wreck of houses swiftly carried by, have fully appreciated the anguish and surfcring this great storm has caused. The hour for anxiety and dread has pass- ed here, but for a week or more there are others South of us who must ex perienee, in an aggravated form, all the most afflicted of our people have endured. This is the track of the trreat freshet, that only months, and jerhaps years, of labor will r-pa itions has, from that time to the pres ent, loen accepted as the highest En. glish authority on the subject. It has gone through numerous editions. and he has had the manhood to ac knowledge where he has been wrong, and to correct any errors into which he had fallen, and even to abandon pet theories when he found that the facts seemed to be against linn. In othor'words he kept pace with the rapid advance of his science, so much so, that the later editions of his works bear no sort of resemblance to the first. It was this fairmindedness that made him so much respected and referred to as a man of science. He visited this country twice, once in 1S41 and again in 1 1", and exam ined critically the geological forma tion of this continent, lie wrote an account of both visits, and they con tain much that is of interest to the American scientist, lie died full of years and honors, but remained ac tive to the last. It ha,s been w ithin last the three years that the last edition of his Geology was published, and he personally supervised the revision. what he thought ought to be done with him. said : " I ought to bo put where I can not do such things." He evidently has a clearer conception of his case than the judge and jury, who have ordered that ho be swung oh" in to eternity. Insanity, trumped up for the occasion, has doubtless created such disgust, that juries look, with suspicion on the plea whenever it Is put in ; but there is danger that we may run to the other extreme, and while there may be many McFarlands, wiio are deserving oi a murderers reward. still at large on the plea of in sanity, there maybe such irresponsi ble persons as Jesse Poineroy, who ire deserving of our charity, and care, and protection, instead oi a felon's death. WHAT KNOXVILLK COULD HE. When the United States Govern mint appropriated the agricultural lands to tiie several States the grant required from them a legislative act, assenting to the conditions upon which the donation was made. One of these conditions was that the State should inviolably provide for the in terest upon the bonds in which the fund should be invested. The State of Tennessee has a large portion of this fund. It is invested in our Agri cultural College, where it is of great benefit to our people. The Legislature not only by positive enactment but by every principle of good faith is obliged to provide for this interest. We are glad to see that the Legisla ture proposes to pay the interest past due. As it is evident that the State will not be able or does not expect to pay the interest on its debt for some time, we hope it will see the necessity and justice of making an exception in the bonds of this College, and pro vide for the payment of the interest as a preferred claim. It is a debt of honor. It is a debt deserving recognition as among the very first to be paid, and if the Legislature does its duty it will so provide. The new law of the German Par liament is an important step in the secularization of the Empire. It le galizes marriages solemnized by a civil registrar, and does not make baptism obligatory. A woman un der twenty-four or a man under twen ty-five must have the consent of the father, or the mother, if the father is dead. A person divorced for adul tery can not marry his or her para mour, and widows can not re-marry for ten months after the death of the husband. Any clergyman who mar ries a couple wituout trie previous performance of the civil registration can be fined $7.-, or sent to jail for three months. All jurisdiction of marriage and divorce is taken away from the clergy, and priests, monks. and nuns may legally marry ll tnev ph-ase. The South llend (Indiana) Trihunf, of last week, publishes a very volu minous review of the business and manufacturing transactions of that city for 1874. From it we learn that South Hend has in all, lf3 industri al establishments, employing an army of men, and turning out. in 1874, nearly $5,500,000 worth of products." The population of South Hend is about 12,000 (less than is claimed for Knoxville) and this production is nearly $."i00 to each inhabitant and is, perhaps, a better showing than any city in the country. We also learn from the. Tyi'miies fctatement, that there were erected during 1874, within the city limits, lot) buildings, all of which, with eight exceptions, were tlfrltin'js! Such statements as these should awaken our citizens to a proper realization of what Knoxville may become by a display of energy and a development! of our natural advantages. All things considered, we believe 'that our city is more fav ored bv its surroundings, natural wealth, &c, than is South Hend. At last the Tonnessec Legislature lias niiwlo an effort to get up some thing tangiblo on the question of the State debt. A special committee is provided for, to which everything per taining to finances is to be referred. Hut it is a matter of serious uncertain ty. We doubt if it is possible to pre pare anything on that subject upon which the Legislature can harmonize. There are too many conflicting opin ions among the solons who compose that august body. There arc too many men there who fancy tney know a great deal about public finances, who know nothing on that subject, and very little on any other. There are n half-dozen men in both Houses, who, if left to themselves, could and would inaugurate measures for the relief of the people and for the protection of the honor and credit of the St.iU ; but they are compassed about with "dead-weights," and whose power is entirely neutralized, it is a preponderance of the animal over the mental of blood and llesh over brains, and brains will not win in this case, we fear. Is the Senate last week, when the Poslofllce appropriation bill was un der consideration, a motion was made by Senator Robertson, of South Car olina, to strike out a paragraph ap propriating $080,000 for official stamps, and inserting a clause restor ing the franking privilege. The mo tion was tabled by a vote of ,T2 to 25. Of those who voted against re storing the franking privilege, 20 were Republicans and 3 Democrats. Those who favored the proposition were 9 Republicans and 10 Demo crats. VIVISECTION. SIR CHARLES LYELL. Our dispatches a lew mornings since, informed our readers of the death of this eminent geologist and scientist. In his death Great Hrrtain loses her foremost and oldest geolo gist ; and the world of science a man to whom it is indebted for much that is fixed in its knowledge of geology. He was born in Kinnordy, Polar shire, on tiie 14th of November, T'i7. lie graduated at Oxford in ll!i and entered upon the study of law, and even began the practice of his profes sion, but the teaching of Dr. Ruck lard had instilled such a love for the study of nature into his mind, that he threw up his legal pursuits and turned his entire attention to geology. In January, 1830, he published his first extensive -York, ' The Principles of Geology," which in its various el- We have once before referred to this subject in these columns, and we only call attention to it again1 to bring to notice a little book by Dr. Dalton, on the subject that has leen ailed out by the discussion. Dr, Dalton is Professor of Physiology in -New lork, anil ot course speaks ex t'Jifiirti, and being a man of ac knowledgcd honesty and integrity, his statements can be relied on. He instances the important discoveries that have been made by experimenta tion 011 living animals. Our knowl edge of the circulation of the blood, and the elucidation of many ob scure lKjints in the digestive func tion are due to vivisection. Nearly all our knowledge of the nervous system comes from the same source The regeneration of bone, after it has been exsected, and the process of cure after fracture, are understood only by a study of the processes in the living animal. These are only a few of the. points touched upon, and study of the book can only call forth the remark of the Sutton that "to protest against and denounce a tlnng, while profiting by it, not only illogical, but base." Tin: boy -murderer, Jesse Pomeroy has been sentenced to be hung by the neck " until lie is dead, dead, dead. The details of the heart-sickenin acts committed by this boy ate no doubt fresh in the minds of most of our readers. The excitement it ere ated throughout the country at the time was, in some portions of it, very intense, and his case was made the theme of several medico-legal treatise Latterly, however, we have heard nothing from hiin, until this brief paragraph in the newspapers informs us of the view the law takes of his case, Very many persons have serious doubts of his legal responsibility, and not a few are thoroughly satisfied that lie is a fitter subject fur an asy lum than the hangman's noose. Hut circumstances were against him. The principal of these f irctnu-t u:i' -s is that he was the sou of a poor worn It seems to us impossible that the boy should be decntcd at :.!! respon sible for any acts he might cnimit. He is but little remove-1 from an idiot, and the. manner and circum stances under which the acta were committed, show conclusively that he could no more prevent the execution of the deeds than he could voluntarily stop his respira tion. When questioned in regard to his crime, he confessed, anl said he could not help it: and wi.ci a-ked The ICt-CHll or ttinlmrr Jay.

The rresnlent has now tendered the mis sion to the Hon. Oodlove S. Ortli. member of Congress at large from In- Paua, and the present chairman of the committer on foreign affair. His name will lie sent to the Seriate after March 4, and h" will leave for his new duties as soon thereafter as possiole." tmerlrnn Nnrgcry. To the EdituTi of tht Chronicle: Home Englishman Is said to have isked the following question : Who ever reads an American book 7 Whatever that personage might have thought of Americans, and their books, matters not. As an offset to such a query, we will quote some ex tracts from an addrs delivered by Mr. Kiickse-i at the University Col lege Hospital In London, on his re turn from this country. This address Is a well merited and gmeefully deliv ered tribute to tbo American medical profession. Mr. Ericksun traveled in the United Slates laat summer, und visited a large number of our cities. This gentleman is un eminent Sur geon, residing in London, and it is gratifying to know of the impressions lie formed while In our midst. Sur ery In the United Suites, he thinks, stands at a very high level of excel lence. Not only in the large cities, but throughout the country, the standard of Operative Surgery seemed to him very high. The Lent of the mind of the American Surgeon is, he saj s, like that of the English Surgeon, prac tical rather than Scientific; in fact be Hi. ds a (drinking similarity between American and Hritish Sur gery, l lns be attributes to the fact that we have both drawn our knowl edge from tiie same source ; that the names or cooper huh me jeus, 01 1.1s ton and of Hrodie, are as familiar to our earn us to those of bis own coun trymen. We should not forget that the literature of the two countries is nractieallv the same that every En glish writer writes for a public of eighty millions. 11, as iinroui says, (an eminent Ueinum writer), English Surgeons stand highest, and English Surgical literature is the best iu the world, we should be gratified bv the favorable comparison. The truth is. American .Surgery does stand very high, and other countries are be ginning to realize the fact. The reform in hospital construction has also found England somewhat behind-hand. The experience gained iu our late war has given us the lead in this movement, and the enterprise of our Physicians has produced a vast variety of structures which in the light of future experienoe will go far toward solving the dilllcult problem. Mr. Ericksen thiuks the Roosevelt Hospital, in New York, " without ex ception, the most complete medical charity, hi every respect," that he has ever seen. In times past, American Physicians and Surgeons have not been so wide ly known as those of many older n 1 tions. Whh the present facilities of transportation, we are daily brought in closer contact with all parts of the world, and the fault will be ours if the profession does not take that stand which the merits of our country men are Undoubtedly able to give it Bos Ion Med. fc Su;.

All new suggestions and im provements made und effected upon either side of the Atlantic, are soon made available at the bedside. A tariff may be laid upon books, but the ideas are common property- As iu medical science, so in everything. Americans are wideawake, and do not fall behind the old nations beyond the sea. The leading cartoon in the current number of Jlirjirfs IIV,.-' 7y is by Nast, and is devoted to the Pacific Mail Subsidy. "Matron Columbia is designated as remonstrating with the " Children," who are tampering with the Treasury, and telling them to ' stop putting those dangerous irons in the fire," or "somebody's fingers are sure to be burned." It appears that somebody's fingers were burned. Every man connected with this transaction, who has rendered himself liable to criminal prosecu tion, should be prosecuted ; arid if found guilty, should be sentenced to the penitentiary with other thieves and rogues. It is entirely too com mon for felons to escape their ju-d deserts because they or their fViends happen to have money. Public opin ion should demand that all mm are on tiie same level before the law, and that If a man who has weal'h or posi tiou in society turns thief or robber, he should be punishc 1 as quickly as the half-clothed, half-fed Kretch who steals a loaf of bread or a few pounds of meat.
