The friends of On. J.A. M bry, of this city, will, we learn, press bis claims upon the Governor for ap pointment to the United States Hennte. The election in Kentucky re suited in a Democratic victory, of course. No one expected a different result. The majorty will not differ materially from the last election. Governor Porter is credited with sayiug that he would appoint no one to the United (States Henate who press ed his claims before the burial of the deceased Senator Johnson. If this be true, it is commendable. It is safe to say that no man who makes such in decent haste to get an office is worthy to fill it. We trust theeditorof the Atlanta Herald will be candid enough lo tell us just what lie means when he says Andrew Johnson " would never a;nin have desrrlcd" the South. Such talk sounds so strangely to people in this part of the country, that an explana tion would be lead with interest. We do not wish to seem unnecessarily im portunate, but we respectfully insist on the Hirn'd siatii.;; what it meant by the cxi'i-.-ioh above quoted. The editor of The Aye declines to commit binself by saying anything about the meaning of the Atlanta Herald, where it says Andrew John son "would never again have de.-ert-ed " tlic.S.iii'i:. He probably supposes I ma' a candid exie--ion it ins ievs on that statu. u-o! would be prcina'uie and unpopular.

We thought war issues, had been dropped hy the Democracy. Could our neighbors of tho Press mul lLr old and ihe Ay. tell us what is meant hy the above paragraph? Ouii press dispatches this morning reveal a state of affairs among Ameri can travelers in Europe, growing out of the failure of Duncan, Sherman & Co., anything but enviable. It was given out when this firm first failed that ample provision had been made for the protection of travelers bearing letters of credit from the firm, bnt it seems that the statement was want ing in truth. It appears that Alex ander Duncan, of Scotland, father of William Butler Duncan, had offered to guarantee these credits if the Union Bank in London would under take the payments, but for some rea son the negotiation failed, and it is not likely now that it will ever he con summated.

It has in timated that it did have such infor mation, and the public lias a right to it. We have time and ugaia made the charge that there were railroad rings in Tennessee, speculating in State bonds, In oriinj them when it was to their interest to do bo, and lulliit'j tlieui when they could make money by that course. We have not been be hind the curtains, and consequently could not give direct information about the matter. In a little sparring which recently tool; place between tho Tiiio-H and J.

The editor is right in saying that tho people of this country will no longer take the "say so" of any one man for the truth or falsehood of state ments involving so many important consequences. h. closing the article from which Tin- Aye copied in part, we expressly stilted that we intended to be heard again on that subject. We meant, of course, that tho proof would he heard, if called for. But all this bluster about proof is for etfect. We will prove, before we arc done with it, the truth of our charges by members of both Houses of Con gress. We shall, of course, take our own time about it, and promise to have it before the country in time for the next Presidential contest. We are not so stupid as to bring up mat ters of such momentous importance, calling in question the honesty and integrity of the leaders of a great political party, without being ready to make good our assertions. Wc have been in the editorial harness for forty years, and during that time have been often called upon for proof, and have as often furnished it. We would like to know of The Aye if it is for or against the payment for slaves, and the pensioning of the widows and orphans of those who fell in the war of the rebellion ? AVe wish to know if The. Aye will endorse the report of the rebel Democratic com mittee, who may bring in a report for paying t.iesc exorbitant claims? Th- A'jc may as well commence answering these questions now, as at any other time. WHO .-HALL BE OCR SENATOR? Now that tltt! country La ; recovered from the shock caused by the unex pected announcement ci" Senator Andrew .Tnkn son's dee'h, snculations are rile as to who will be his succes sor. It is well known, that under the Constitution, the selection of his Mie ces'tor, until the met ting of the next Legislature, devolves upon Gov. Por ter. In view of all tiie circumstances, the above question is being propound ed by a thousand tongues, Wc do not claim the right to put in nomination the man who shall suc ceed the deceased Johnson. In fact, we do Ji 't suppose any ht'.ggestion that wo may make will have much in fluence with the appointing power. IJut nevertheless, we take the liberty of making a suggestion or two affect ing the rights of East, Tennessee. Eal Tennessee is entitled to the Sen ator, notwithstanding numerous ef forts have been and wiil be made to deprive i.er of her right. There ate a number of suitable persons for the office, among whom wo will mention the name of (Yd. John Williams, of Knox. His father, Col. John Wil liams, filled ti e place forty years ago with honor and ability. His brother, Joseph L. Williams, represented the Kuoxville district in the I 'i.Itcd States " MEETING THE I Congress thirty years ago. We men tion these historical facts to show that the Williams family are by no means unknown to fame. We are proud to say that we took our first lessons in politics from Col. John Williams, Sr., and if ho were living wo would be together to-day. Col. John Williams, whom we now suggest for Senator, is a Conservative Union man, ns was Mr. Johnson, and the latter with his well known views on that subject, having been elected as the representative of that clement, let tho popular will be obeyed by ap pointing the former. In addition to Col. Williams, if he is not acceptable to the Governor, wc have Col. A. lilizard, of McMinn county, Col Kyle or Col. John Ncthcrland, of Hawkins, Col. Jno. M. Pinning, of Knox, and lion. E. A. James, of Hamilton, Surely among all these Gov. Porter can find a fit man for Mr. Johnson's successor. MOHE ABOUT THE SENATOR. )ttr Democratic friends don't ac cept cither of the tickets we piescnt- ed them upon the Senatorial question. They need not be at a loss for the right sort of a man, measuring by the Democratic platform. We say, in good faith, that if they want a young, promising man, let their, commission James T. Shields. If they want a man who is also a promising man and a man of good character, let them commission Alfred Caldwell. If they want a man devoted to the inter ests of Tennessee and to her railroad improvements, as well as our rrater navigation, let them commission C. M. McGhce. If they want a rising man, of dignified bearing, and political life, together with fine personal np pcarancc, let them commission Col. AIoscs White. If they want a man of Senatorial age am1, experience, whose purity of character, high order of tal ent, and dignified bearing would be an honor to the State, let them com mission Hon. Itobcrt J.MeKinney. If they want an active, well informed man, whose locks have been whitened by the frosts of sixty winters, let them commission Judge Van Dyke. Wc extended our remarks to let the public know East Tennessee can fur nish suitable men, and is entitled to the Senator. This is the point wc make, and the only point, that East Tennessee must not be robbed of the Senator. DANIEL O'CONNELL. Speaking of Daniel O'Conncll, the celebration of whose centennial birth day takes place to-day, the Washing ton Chroniele says : Tho.-e of our adopted citizen, who glory in having Ireland for their birth place, are making preparations to celchrate the centenniul natal day of Daniel O'Con ncll, which occurs on Friday next. Probably no one ever exercised ' more sway'over the inhabitants of the Green Isle unless .St. Patrick -himself than Daniel O'Conncll. Ho could capture multi tudes by his eloquence and wit, and he could direct and hold his hearers cn masse, to tho line cf policy which ho thought proper to adopt. He could produce more real unity of sentiment than any man we ever heard of, the evidence of which was presented to the uunds of hundreds now living, ia tho" monster meetings held on Irish soil, many years ago, when he was in Ids prime. Kvon sympathetic America was entlmsia-ilcu'.ly animated by tho fervor of his utterance, nnd felt tho glow of his pa triotism and the inspiration of his exabed genius. 1 in: New York II ,rll seems to be losing it.s prestige in the South as a Democratic organ.

EDUCATIONAL. lllf tier Intuitu.- el 1 li.trn T tin- i. litvi t i j t,e C''ii-.,.V- : l'tir; unlit to Woiiainine. Siioerin teinlenl Knrhs called the Teachers Institute to order at 0 A. .M. yesterday. Ihe work of the day wis opened by an appropriate prayer by Rev. Mr. Ayres. The teachers weretlien wel comed in a very neat speech by Presi dent Ileeman. In the absence of the Secretary Mr. Montgomery was ap pointed Secretary, and the appropriate committees appointed. Owing to tho fact that only about half of the teachers expected had tir rived, the election of officers for the ensuing year was postponed until this morning. The regular work of the Institute was tlien opened by a class-drill in Arithmetic, conducted bv Prof. M. C Butler, followed by a drill lu vocal el ements, by Prof. Heeman, after which a lively discussion ensued upon these two topics. From this discussion it was manifest that both drills had done good work. After some spirited vocal musle and miscellaneous business, the meeting adjourned for dinner. At 1:30 the meetiifg re-assembled. The number of teachers present had grown very considerably in the mean time, and continued to increase during tbeeveniDg; so that by the time of adjournment at 4 J sr., between thirty and forty were present. This increase in numbers added irreatlv to the Inter est of the several classsdrills and dis cussion. The topics Mere writing, rending, ppellinc and Arithmetic, con ducted by Superintendent Karns and rrotessors lieeman and Jhitler. At S l sr. the members of the Institute ami ninny of the citi zens of tho neighborhood nssemh'cd in tiie church to listen to an ail dress from Prof. Hunter' Nicholson, of me r,asi lennessee university, on " The Jielution of the Agricultural Colli ge to tho Common Schools." The exercises were opened bv a Diaver from Hev. Dr.. Mays. The address was about an hour long and was listened to with marked attention by the en tire audience. The main points made by the speaker were, that the Agricul tural or Scientific College, was the natural product of that elevation of the industrial classes, which characterizes modern eivilizntion. That the almost universal application of machinery to the industrial arts in recent vears. has created a demand for u more general diffusion of knowledge concerning the sciences and arts upon which all ma chinery depends. This knowledge could not be obtained in the obi Col leges. Hie sciences needed were not taught in existing schools. Of neces sity, then, new schools were created. J he impulse which lias given rise to this new College was neither sudden nor local. It had been gathering for generations and was felt by the people of every moving ration. '1 lie speaker then gave a brief ac count of the organization of the Agri cultural Colleges under the act of Con gress, and passed on to the obstacles in the way of the success of the new College. These be considered to be: tho newness of the enterprise, disliis clination of farmers to educate their sons for their own calling, the scarcit v of competent men to run the institu tions, but mainly the want of properly organized preparatory schools. The speaker then passed to the con sideration i of the common schools. taking as his text this quotation from a report made some time ago to the .uassacnuseiLs jLiegisiatuie : " The school evstem nf New T'.ncr. land fails to meet the wants of the civ ilization or the present day." This he said was true of the entire school system of the United States, mm noiauiy so oi iiiai or Tennessee. The failure grows out of the fact that the things taught are not things which men aud women need to aid them in the struggle of life, and the mental habits formed ere not those most need ed in the conduct of every day allairs. The speaker then went into some detailed criticisms of the methods of teaelimg, spelling, reading, writinir. geography, Ac., and made suggestions us to how much time now devoted to lliese studies might be more tiiotllalilv employed in leurning the elements of 15otany, Physics, Physical Geography, and other sciences, and earnestly re commended tho formation of Natural History collections in every school. This morning the Institute will open witli a still larger number of teachers and increased interest. Eor the after noon, Dr. May is booked for an ad dress on "The Teacher's Mission, ' aud Hon. David Itichardsfora " talk ;" while to-night Professors Sharp and liutler deliver addresses tho former on "The Natural -Method of Teach ing," ami tl.u latter on " What should tie Taught in our Common Schools." Altogether t lie meeting so far is a swve.-s, thanks lo the energy of (Super intendent Karns, the zeal of tho teach ers, and the hospitality of tiie citizens of Thorn tiroveand vicinity. Yl.-JToH.

A Man littti 111 M ilt, mill lilltlrrn In I'lt'oen mill Atlemi l Hunt TIifiii. The Kaleigh ATews of the 17lh hhvh Our readers are already acquainted with the horrible details of ihe murder in February of the wife und child of Scott Pai tin in this county, at the bauds of me minimal! Iiuslmnil aud father, but me ioiiowing addiiionul facts which have just come to light, make the com mittal oi me norrilile deed even more heinous than It at first appeard. On Wednesday, another general search was made to find the remaining portions of t lie unfortunate woman and chilil, which could not be found in the hole in which portions of ihe body was at first discovered, which search resulted in the discovering of tue place at which tho brutal act was committed. In n heavy thicket some quarter of a mile from the residence of A. W. Partin, and about the same instance from the spot at which the first discovery was made, was found what was evidently the scene of the murder. Near a log. which tune traces of having been cut by an axe, as if something hud been chopped upon it, was found the remnants of a fire, and in the ashes and near the fame was found the bones of a human foot and those of a hand, some of theieeih of a human being, the skull of an infant and portions of the unfortunate wo man, together withthe buttons of a dress, leaving no doubt of the fact that themuiierer had first chonned Ids wife and child up and then endeavored It) destroy the pieces by burning them, but finding the process too slow or haz ardous, hail resorted to the plan of burying them in the manner in which they were discovered last week. His mother now stat"s thai Scott Partin remained in the neighbi.rhooil several days after the disappearance of his wife and chiid; that some four days subsequent to hit leaving tier house wllh ins wire be came lo the house and borrowed a guano bag and obtained bis yarn coat, and thtu she saw him pass several t i mes across the held between the place where the last and first discoveries of the body were mane. The feeling in the community where till i foul outrage was committed is still intense, Mid the life of Scott Partin would be far from safe in the hands of tbflse people. TH K MrllltKKKK I'KOlIAIiLY AltKKSTKU A dispatch was received bv the Gov ernor yesterday to the f fleet that a man answering the description of Scott Partin (the same to which we alluded yesterday morning as having been seen at Palmyra, Halifax county,) had neen arresied between I'almyra and Tarboro', and was held nwaitiug iden tification. Policeman Crosson left this city for that locality Thursday night, and us he is personally acquainted with Partin, it the man arrested be the right one he is doubtless at present in the clutches of the law. If he be arrested let not justice be slow In giving him that death which his damnable deed so richly merits. Women You Meet in the Cars. There is the woman who drives vou mad by never being discomposed in either manner or dress. Her hair is as smooth as though it had been ironed : her face is as cleau as though cinders and dust were an unknown quantity; her boots aud gloves are new : they nt so perfectly that vou are quite sure her feet aud hands were poured into them. Hue is not without wisdom in iieiuir bicn chaussc aud bien gantcc. When people have nothing to do or think about, they are reduced to extremities! Hut when this immac ulately attired woman emerges from her section, after a sleenless night's journey, as calmly uurumplcd us on nor nisi appearunoe, endurance ceases to be a virtue. She is a renroach to earth aud man. People have no busi ness to go through life without coming in contact with it. The im- muculutely attired womau has no wrinkles. She never will have. She blieds feelings precisely as she sheds dust. They slide oil' her. 1 don't approve of her at all, but I do wish uiv boots nnd gloves looked like hers. Then there is the frowsv womau. The longer she travels the more "scratched up" her general appearance. Her children, between the ages ot ihne and s. ve'i, browse upon everythii-g in gen-.ial, making niubt hideous by crying, and day hidcoim by permeating the atmosphere with their uneasy selves. Her hus band wears paper collars, puis his boots on in public, and reads voletitlv illustrated papers. A'ate 1'Uld- Elect of tho Storm 0a Western Crops. CllICAHo. Aug. 2 Tho heavy mios of the past week, and the storm of Sat urday night and .Sunday in particular, have seriously damaged wheat, out and potatoes, throughout the States of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. I he corn cron of Illinois Is also threatened. From Southern Min nesota and Northern Iowa, the great wheatsproducing sections of the North- v est, tue report as regards tho wheat harvest are more favorable, public and private advices from til counties in Illinois represent the wheat, outs and potatoes as very badly damaged. Tiie latter 1 1 almost ruined. It is now feared that the continuance of tho rain will keep tho coi n growing, so that it will not ripen btfoib thu early frosts overtakes it. In Ohio, rain prevailed during the entire week throughout Ihe State, and wheat nnd oats are reported to be as badly Injured as in Illinois. From all parts ot Missouri come re ports of damage to wheat und oats. On Saturday the rain began eaily and continued mail Sunday night late. Tho railroads entering Kansas City are nil in trouble, tracks und bridges being washed away. Tho crops lu Wisconsin and Miunei-oU have not sull'ered ns severely as in the States mentioned above, and a large yield is expected in these two States. SAULSBURY. How 1 li-y Mtmnicfsil II (m on lite lm M-nrlnnrnt I'rlnl. There wero oilier dark ways and vain tricks connected with both sides of the Impeachment struggle, which would take a volume, Instead of nn ar ticle, 'o relate. I can not, however, re frain from telling one of them. Mr. Willard Haulsbury was a Democratic Senator from Delaware, with good in teiitions, but a very decided weakness for toddy. Ho would stay Bober for niontliB son, climes, but the mere smell of liquor would start him on a spree that might last for weeks. He had been quite steady for a long time, and had promised to abstain entirely from liquor while the Impeachment trial lasted. One evening a young man called at his room ami desired nn in terview, which was granted. He rep resented himself as the agent of a wine and liquor Importing house in New York, who had come to Washington to have the tariff amended with" re spect to these articles, nnd he would like to interest the Senator in his cause. He concluded his remarks by saying that he had brought some samples of wine ami brandy with him, and asking the Senator's permission to send a few bottles to his room. Hauls bury Immediately saw in this proposi tion a plot to got him drunk, so that he might be either absent from the Senate when the vote on Impeach ment was taken, or that, going to the Senate in a state of intoxication, he might be expelled, as had often been threatened in his case. Indeed, a res olution for ids expulsion had once been offered and wus then on the calendar of tho Henate. It looked then, on a close calculation, ns if one vote sub tracted from the Democratic side would secure Johnson's conviction. Saulsbury ordered the bogus wine merchant out of his room in short or der, and immediately acquainted sev eral of his friends w ith the details of the plot. It reached Johnson's ears very soon. "They can't beat me any other way," said the President, " and they are try ing to get the jury drunk." It was immediately resolved by Johnson's friends to keep a close watch on Sauls bury, aud lliis precaution was soon rendered necessary. Haulsbury, wheth er as tho result of a conspiracy, or in obedience to his own sweet will,' got furiously drunk on the day rendered memorable in the history- of the trial hy the anti-Impeachment speeches of Fesseuden, Trumbull, aud other Ke publicans. It wa a secret session of the Senate, but it soou got noised ubroad that Haulsbury was trvimrto get the floor tomakea drunken speech. xian au ijour later lie would probably have been expelled, liut he was per suaded to leave the Senate, and he wus accompanied to his room, where lie was put to bed. The vote was ex pected the next day, and as it was im portant to have Haulsbury oreseut. a consultation was held as to the best and quickest means of sobering him oil. Homebody suggested a big fright as a good thing for him under ihe eir cumstauces. There was a Babcock fire extinguisher In the hall, which wus immediately transferred to thp bedside of the tipsy Senator. Hauls bury rose on bis haunches to know what the infernnl thing was for, and the agonizing manner in which he begged lor mercy when told that it was a stomach pumn. and that it would be applied to him if he were not duly sober by 5 in the morning, will nov soon uh lorgonen ny tne lew who witnessed it. F'roui that day forward until the vote was taken Haulsbury was sent to the Henate every day In a hack, aud his movements were care fully watched bo that he was present to vote against Impeachment when the final vote was taken. There was a sequel to this. The anti-Impeachers insisted on the Mosaic law of retalia tion drunk for drunk aud there was a bad case of delirium tremens on the other side of the Henate Chamber be- lore long, which can even now bo traced iu the oflleial record of the High Court of Impeachment.
