The Wit was rend from tlio Journal, whon Mr, Conger demanded the rending of thc.orlglnnl hill. Tlilii Indicated a purpose on the part ol tho Repub lican to purtue tlio tnctlca of last session lo cboVe legislation by dilatory motiont, which happily the conclusion did not warrant. Mr. Conger explained that tbo Republicans had never Intended to oppose the consideration of tho bill, and only pursued inch lactlca last session be tauso they desired the legislation of that sta tion to be confined to the purposes for which Com trew was called, and that was to make the appro priations which the preceding Congress; for iiontl cal purposes, had failed to do Speaking for himself, ho would say ha believed it to bo the worst attack upon tho rights of the American citizens ever attempted! and ho should oppose it ; but if geutlcmcn on the olhcr sldo were willing to take the bill out of the morning hour and refer it to the Committee of tho Whole there would be no opposition to 1U free aud fair discussion on this side.

Tlio question nro.se upon the fact that the road or a portion of it was constructed after tho period prescribed In the grant ing act and upon n Hue dlilercnt from that adopted as the ilellnlto location. Tho Attonioy-Gcnernl holds that the eta to Is entitled lo tho lauds, not withstanding tho road was built after the lima fixed lor lis completion had expired, because no action, cither legislative or Judicial, has been taken torelnvestthe Hulled Mates with title. On Ihesccond point ho lioUW thnt tho definite location by tho company prior to the acceptance by the State of the grant wni not binding on cither tho Hate or theGoernm:nt, and that, as the State had byre pcatcd legislation required the company to build lo cortalu points several miles distant from the line as fixed by definite location, tho Government must accept the construction without reference to the fact that it in on a dillerci.t route from the ono formally adopted by the company. and upon which tha limits or the grant hnvo been adjusted. Ihc becretnry has adopted tho Attorucy-Gcucial's opinion. Loyalty tn tlio Confcdorncy. Ilio following statement was (clegrnphcd last night to tho Knoxvillo(Teuu.) Chronicle by itscoi respoudent In this city: Some two -weeks agon city paper published an Interview with Itcpiesenlatlvo Kills, or Louisiana, In which that gentleman wasrcpiesenlud assaying that ho wan not surprised at tho letter or Mr. I'd- ton, of Georgia, when ho reflected now "exces sively loynl" Ills (Vclton'a) people had been to the CI1UOU lllllllln 1IIU iuic mil, IUI1II .ill, j vuuu reached Washington his attention was called lo the remarks alleged to hato been made by Mr. nils, whereupon ho addressed a letter to that gentle man, requesting an explanation of the objection able lnngungo, and nddliif that ho was willing to allow a compnrlhon or tho record or tho people or North Georgia with those of New Oilcans on tho score- ov fidelity to the lato Confederacy, remarking that It took General Sherman six months to pass thioiigh that "exceedingly loyal" country, wnllo ho was of tho Impression that In ISfiJ, wlicn lltiiler capturod New Orleans, a com plete surrender was exhibited by tho men, and but forthcspliltnr the women or mat city tho sub mission would hnvo been complete In risnonse to thii letter Mr. Kills has sent a nolo In which he disclaims any intention of re lloctlng upon the devotion to the Confederacy or the people repiesented by Mr. Pellon, and express ing the belief that they wero as good rebels us any in the aouth during the war.

Although the Utcs have been somewhat distinguished lor their succcuful contests with the Navajos, in which tho latter had tho worst of the encounter!, ihB iininheen frlondlv to the whites with tho ex ception of soino fighting in 1S5'J and 1MB, about llttOSlCaK, WIICIU &UU1U 1UT1UK linn iliruiiccicu bands of tho tribe depredated upon the emigrants and miners In 1W and KXS3 treaties were made with the Utoa which gay o to them 18 ftM square miles of icservation In tho svestern partof tlie 'fcnl tory, tho southern portion of it being known as tho ban Juan region. This section pioveel to bo rich, lu precious metals, which naturally attiactcd the at tention and cupidity ol the miners, causing a large inllux of that clnss In that region, and In 1H72 treat ies were made for thoccsslou of thatpnrt ofthe reser vation. In 1874 th Indians consented to the sale of o.oOO squnru mile" lor 25,000 a y car, forever, The Government failed, of course, to carry out the pro visions or theso treaties and much alsentlsfactlon was occasioned thereby. This feeling was augmented whon the fact was discovered that they had unwittingly included In the sale much or their most vnlunblo agri cultural lands. Since that transaction uioie or less or Ill-blood hns oxistcd among the people or tho tribe, wuicn nan uecu tumuiaieu oy ineir aversion to manual labor ror subsistence.

It will be recol lected that Mr. Meeker's attempt to plow up a portion or Hi reservation led to tho outbreak which caused tho lessor his life aud his male as slsfants and led to an encounter with tlie troops.

The exercises were even more entertaining, and tlio audience entered moro heartily Into tho work. The Interest uevcr lagged fur a moment. Dr. Vin cent every now and then throwing In a word or so, which put the entlro audience to laughter, thus varying Iho proceedings. The afternoon session was oiiened at 3 o'clock by an organ voluntary by Professor Illscholl', which was follow sd by singing led by Dr. G. 1 Johnston, and prayer by Rev. James A. Woiden. Rev. Dr. Rauklu delivered an address ou " I he Pastor's Ru-latlou tn the Sunday school," , . , Ho said that they were tho same as the relations ortho pureuttu tha child. Hu is thu shepherd of the Hock, It is a pnsloinl relation, The pastor and thu Sunday school nro not separate there Is no divided relation between their work. Ho ought to bo tho organizer ofthe school. Ha is the ci-.oflleto superintendent or the school, The pastor Is the Ikiiteimnl-colouel, nud tho teachers aro his captains. Whatever tlio pastor shall do lu the pulpit. In his pastoral v bltutlon, and by way or ait appreciable word, he Is right in Iho line or his duly to tho bunclay-school. Hut preacher every where Is too much preacher. He should have a volco 111 Ilia selection of tha teachers, nnd should be an actualjv Isllor to the several classes. A preacher should meet tho teachers occasionally lu spiritual conversation, Ho should preside at leathers' mtellnt,! nnd fully prepare himself to take part in the pioceudings. Onu regret he had ns a pastor wai that there are not two Sundays In tlio week ono for tho children, the other for the pastor. The doctor spoko of tho absurdity or pas tors using liicouipichenslblolanguagc, words often which piule adults and entirely mystify children, Their words should be selected wllh great care.

He should look at the lesson himself Hr will look at It at iv dllloieiit nugle from which any other person will look at It; there w 111 ho Indlv Iduallty nbout It. Theu he can compare notes with others. Hebe lined that If a leather even reads a lesson six wc?l8 ahead It will prepare him and do a great deal of good, A tone her should havo cone filtra tion of thought, and learn bow lo think and study over the lesson. Tho Sunday-school teacher who fully masteis Ills subject by hard thlukliig will leach freshly and Interestingly There should be a careful anal v sis ol Iho lesson beforehand, so as to get at every point and thoroughly understand it. Die points iiioiuu men ue anapieu to ine pupus. A good plan for a teacher is lo discuss, or rather to converse, on the subjects of losbons lu lliu bosom of thu Ittinlly at the table. A great point lu adapta lion is llhihliattou, lint Illustrate not only to amuso and keep thu attention or Iho pupil", but to create thought nud set their minds ut woik.

Though logical and straightforward, tho lccluro was unusually entertaining, bolng rcpleto with witty sayings nnd plenslng anecdotes. The doctor completely en tranced his bearers, ami when through speaking, or moro properly, when bei quit speaklngon account of the lateness of thu hour, he wan requested on all sides to continue.
