Nashville American : Below will
be found a ftutement of the existing
debt of Tennessee, taken from official
sources, which shows that the Brown-
low portion of the debt is reiy small.
and also that the bonds issued by
Governor John G. lirowus adminis
tration were not for railroads or
war interest, but were issued to renew
bonds which were a part of what is
called the State deU proper, which
had become due, and for legitimate
interest which had become due be
tween 1868 and 1873. This state
ment also shows that the State debt
proper, s it is called, which was orig
inally 86,481,000, has been reduced
to ?2, 105,000. Much of this reduc
tion has bceu caused br the railroad

TENNESSEE, APRIL 20, 1880.
Mistake About I's Corrected'
Two Visions on Look
Dr. Talmage recently preached a
discourse to his Brooklyn congrega
tion, which will attract universal at
teution. His subject was "Mistakes
aliout the South corrected." We
make the following extracts from the
I started on the tour with no par
tisan predilections and nopredjudices,
and resolved to tell on my return
what I saw, whether it might be gen
erally approved or denounced by one
or both sections. I had no political
record to guard or defend, for my
chief work in the ministry has Iteeu
done since the war closed. My ad
miration for the Democratic party
aud the Republican party as parties.
is so small that it would take one of
McAlister's most powerful magnifying
glasses to discover any thing of it.
American politics are rotten, and
that party steals the most that has
the most chance. 1 had all the doors
of information opened to me. I talk
ed with high and low. Governors and
water carriers, clergymen and laymen,
lawyers, doctors, editors and philan
thropists, with the black and the
white, old residents of the South and
new settlers from the North, and I
found that there have been the most
persisteut and outrageous misrepre
sentations iu regard to the South by
many of the correspondents of secular
and religiouxjournalsand by meii who,
overbearing and dishonest in their
behavior at the South, have had in
formation given to them that their
company was not desirable. If a
man go south and behave well he will
be treated well. There is uo more
need of rigorous governmental espion
age iu Atlanta, Augusta or Macon
than there is in Boston or New York.
The present disposition of the South
has been so wrongly set torth that J
propose now, s far as I am able, to
correct the stereotyped elanders con
This side of heaveu there is no
more hospitable people than the peo
ple of the South, and now I bring a
message from all the states of the
South which I. visited, inviiing immi
grants thither. The South is to rival
the West as an opening beld for
American enterprise. Horace Gree
ley's advice to go west is to have an
addenda in "Go South." The first
avalanche of population thither will
make their fortunes. It is a national
absurdity that so much of the cotton
of the oouth should be transported, at
great expense to the North, to be
transformed into articles of use. , The
few factories at the South are the pio
neers of the uncounted spindles which
are yet to begin the hum of their
graud march on the banks of the Sa
vannah, Appalachicola and the Tom'
bigbee. There stands Georgia, with
its 58,000 square miles, and South
Carolina, with its 34,000 square
miles, and Alabama, with its 50,722
square miles, and the other states,
none of them with more than teu per
cent of their resources developed.
When will the overcrowded popula
tion of our great cities take the wings
of the morning and fly to regions
where they shall have room to turn
round and breathe and expand and
become masters of their own corn
fields or rice swamps or cotton plan
tations or timber forests. The state
ment so long rampant at the North
lbt the South did uot want industri
ous, useful and moral Northerners to
settle among them, I brand as a po
litical falsehood, gotten up and kept
up for political purposes.
Again, I have t correct the im
pression that the South is bitterly op
posed to the government ol the Uni
ted States. The South submited to
arms certain questions, and most of
them are submissive to the decision.
There is no fight in them. We heard
much about the fire-eaters of the
South, but if they eat fire they have
a private table and private platter of
coals in a private room. I sat at
many tables, but I did not see any
thing of that kind of diet. Neither
could I see any spoon or knife or fork
that seemed to have been used in fire
eating. Why, sirs, I uever saw more
placid people some of them with all
their property gone and starting life
at forty or sixty years with one leg or
olie arm or oe eye, the member miss
ing sacrificed in battle 1 It is simply
miraculous that those people feel so
cheerful and amiable. It is dastardly
mean to keep representing them as
acrid and waspish and saturnine and
malevolent. I have traveled as much
as most people in this and other lauds,
and I hare yet to find a more affaole,
delicately sympathetic, whole hearted
people than the people of the South.
They are to-day loyal and patriotic,
and if a foreign foe should attempt to
set foot on this soil for the purpose of
intimidation or conquest, the forces of
Bragg and Geary, McClellan and
Beauregard, Lee and Grant would
come shoulder to shoulder, the blue
aud the gray, and the cannons of Ft.
Hamilton, Sumter and Pickens would
join in one chorus of thunder and
The fact is that this country has
had a big family fight, but let a
neighbor come in to interfere, and you
know how that always works. There
never was a time when the nation
was so thoroughly one as to-day.
Would to God we might more thor
oughly appreciate it.
You see tho whole of my Southern
journey was one ot high encourage
ment, lbe great masses of the peo
pie are right. If a half a dozen poli
ticians at the North and a naif doz
en at the South would only die, we
should have no more sectional acrimo
ny. It is a case for the undertakers.
If they will bury these few dema
gugues out of sight we' will pay the
entire expenses of catafalque and epi
taph, and furnish enough brass band
to play the rogue's march. But time,
under God, will settle it. The gener
ations that follow us will not share in
the autipathies and bellicose spirit ot
their ancestors, and will sit in amaze
ment at a state of things which made
the national graveyards of Murfrees
boro, Gettysburg and Richmond an
On a clear morning of week before
last we took a carriage and wound up
to the top of Lookout Mountain.
Up, up, up! We went out 011 the
rocks and saw iuto five states of the
Union scenes so stupendous and
overwhelming that you involuntarily
take off your hat, in the presence of
the gran lest prospect on the conti
nent. Yonder is Missionary Ridge,
the beach against which the red bil
lows of Federal and Confederate cour
age surged aud broke 40,000 on
cue side, 05,000 on the other. Yon
der arc the blue mountains of North
and South Carolines. With utmost
stretch of the eye, yonder see Ken
tucky and Virginia. Here at the
foot are Chattanooga ami Chicka
mauga, the pronunciation of
winch proper names will thrill
the ages with the thoughts of
valor, desperation and agony- Turn
round on the tip top rock of Lookout
Mountain and see the earthworks to
the north and south, east and west.
There is the beautiful Tennessee river
curving and coiling all through the
plain iu letter S after letter S, as if
that letter written on all the scene
might stand for shame that brothers
should go into such a massacre of each
other, while God and the nations look
on. l nave stood on .uouut w asbine:-
ton, aud on the Sierra Nevadas, and
on the Alps, but I never saw so far
as that morning from the top of Look
out Mountain. Why, sirs! i saw
seventeen years into the past and up
the sides ot the mountain ou which 1
stood rolled the smoke of Hooker's
storming patty, while the foundations
of eternal rock shook with the cannon
ade. Yea, the four years of interne
cine strife came back, the events with
out cl r nological order.and I looked in
one direction ana saw the navy yard
at Norfolk ou fire, and Sumter on fire,
and Chambersburi; on firr, aud
Richmond on fire, and saw Ellsworth
fall, and Baker fall, and Lyon fa! ,
and Bishop Polk fall, and Stonewall
Jackson fall, and I saw hundreds of
grave trenches finally cut into two
great gashes across the land, tha one
for the dead men of the North, the
other for the dead men of the South,
and my ear as well as my eye quick
ened standing on Lookout Mountain.
And I heard the tramp, tramp of eu-
isted armies, and the explosion ot
miues and powdcrbolts and the crash
of fortification walls and the mortar
batteries, aud the "swamp angel,"
and the groan of dying hosts fallen
across the pulseless heart of other dy
ing hosts; and I looked still further
till I saw on the banks of the Penon-
scot, and Hudson, and Ohio, and Ore
gon, and Roanoake. and the Yazoo,
and the Alabama, widowhood and or
phanage and childlessness, some in ex
haustion of grief and others stark mad,
and I said, "Enough of the past have
I seen from Lookout Mountain. Oh,
God give me a glimpse of the future."
And that morning it was revealed to
me, and I saw another prospect from
Lookout Mountain great populations
moving south ani moving north, and
I noticed that their footsteps oblitera
ted the hoof-marks of the war-charger,
and I saw the angel of the Lord cf
hosts stand in their national cemeter
ies trumpet in hand, as much as to
say, "I will wake these soldiers from
their long encampment at the right
time," and I looked and I saw such
suowy harvests of cotton and such
golden harvests of corn covering all
the land as we have not di earned of;
aod I saw that all the earthworks
were down, and all the war barracks
down, aud all the gun carriages down,
ani the rivers wound through the
valleys, their letter S seeming no
more for shame, but S for salvation;
and when I found that all our weap
ons of war had been turned iuto agri
cultural implements, I was alarmed
and cried: "Is this safe?" Then, stand
ing on the tip-top rock ot Lookout
Mountion, I heard two voices which
somehow slipped the gate, and they
sang, "Nation shall cot lift up sword
against nation; neither shall they learn
v. ar any more." And I recognized the
two voices. They were the voices of
two Christian soldiers who fell at Shi-'
loli; the one a Federal, the other a

Dr. CH Thomas of : Philadelphia
has been making a study of the vari
ous new devices for helping the deaf
to hear. All of them, he Bays, de
pend for their action upon the princi
ple of acoustics that solids vibrate in
unison with the sound waves produced
in the air near them. In these instru
ments tbo vibrations are of sufficient
force to be audible when conveyed to
the internal ear through the medium
of the teeth and cranial bones, inde
pendently of the ordinary channel of
hearing. He says that a simple and
excellent instrument for the purpose
"consists simply of a rod of hard wood
about two feet long and a quarter of
an inch thick, one end of which is
placed against the teeth of the speak
er, the other resting against or between
the teeth of the person hard of hear
ing. If the speaker articulates in a
natural tone of voice, the vocal vibra
tion will be transmitted in great vol
ume 'hrough the teeth aad thence to
the ears of the deaf person. It will
also convey the voice distinctly when
placed against the forehead or other
portions of the hearer. It will also
convey perfectly audible speech from
the skull of one to that of the other,
or such sounds may be conveyed by
simply bringing the heads themselves
in contact. Again, instead of the
speaker holding it against the teeth,
he may place it against the upper part
of his chest, when, upon using his
voice, the sound will be conveyed as
befsre, of course independently of the
teeth of either person."
