TENNESSEE'S PUBLIC DEBT.
On the 16th inst. the Democratic State Con
vention, assembled at Nashville, adol ted a
declaration and address, from which we repub
lish this extract, as being of special interest to
the people of Louisiana:
For five years the National Radical Republi
can party upheld and protected an irresponsi
ble minority in the usurpation of our State
Government, and permitted it to waste the
substanoe of our unrepresented and Im
poverished people by burdensome taxation,
and the lswns and sale at an enormous discount
of millions of bonds, the proceeds of whihob, in
great part, were converted to the private use
of its party favorites, and when the control of
the State Government was recovered by our
people they were threatened by military gov
ernment if they presumed to question the
validity of the bonds so issued. We under
took to provide for these bonds as a part of
our public debt. As Demoorats we point with
pride to the fact that since the accession of
our party to power it has not created a dollar
of debt, but has paid millions upon the exist
ing debts. It has steadily reduced the ex
penses of the administration of the State Gov
ernment. It has attempted to meet all the ob
ligations of the State, just and unjust. By
reason of circumstances over which we have
had no control, we are no longer able to meet
the requirements of our credltars. The cost
of all our productions exceeds their market
value. Our mechanics and laboring people are
without remunerative work. OJr merchants
are making no gairs. None are prosperous
save corporationr, interest takers and money
lenders. We recognize among ourselves wide
differetoas of opinion as to t te true mode and
measure of payment of our public obligations;
but for the present these differences of opinion
afford no just occasion for disturb;ng that
unity which is so essential to the complete
success of our party in its great stroggle for
the liberation of the country. We ourdially
unite, however, in declaring tbht we are op
posed to the repudiation of toe Just indebted
ness of the State, and that we are in favor of
an equitable adjustment of our public indebt
edness. But to the end that this question may
be put out of the polities of this rtate, we de
clare that we are for the submission to the
people, for their ratification or rejection at the
ball t-box, at a separate election, of any ad
justment of the8tate debt which may be made
by the Legislature, and until souh adjustment
shall have been made and ratified by the peo
ple, we declare that we are opposed to the levy
of any greater tax upon the people than
may be necessary for the pamens of tshe ex
penses of the State Governments economically
administered.
We demand the adoption of a constitutional
provision prohibiting the State forever from
borrowing money and issuing bonds, except
sooh as may be isseaed in compromise of the
present dett.
We demand the reduction of the fees of
officers, in conformity to the general shrinkage
of values and stringency of the times, and the
adoption of a maximum standard, all fets in
excess to go into county treasuries for the use
of schools.

* Dr. Mandeville has returned from Grenada

He describes the fever as being of a very ma- to
lignant type, and in many instances of two of
a more paroxysms. Black vomit is not frequent
o in the fatal cases; the disease sesms t attack at
e the kidneys more violently than is generally he
t observed in yellow fever, and sometimes the

, Rapid conaestion is the characteristio of the
I type, and Dr. Mandeville has observed that in tb
s many instances a low typhoid form of fever ba
supervened upon the convalescent stage. t
a Several causes are assigned by the people of
r Grenada for the origin of the fever. Accord- 'm
log to one theory it was prodnoed by the open- (01

priooipal streets. In this sewer were found fot

animals, which were In a condition cf putre- br

i Field, who lived near this sewer, which was
left open for weeks, was taken ill and died. for
Her malady was pronounced bilious fever, and of
her funeral was largely attended. Other oases I
of a similar characser followed, and in a few Put
days about thirty Ave persons were taken jel
down. The disease was thee pronoense4 yel. the
low fever, and the people commeuoed fleeing m
from the city. The exodus was continued
until not over 350 were left. Another bypo
thesis which has been put forward to aooount SW
for the appearance of the fever was, that Mrs. thi
Field, shortly before her Illness, had received let
a dress from New Orleans, and Head been ino- lee
footed by the garment. About seventy-five
colored persons were stricken with the disease
prevailing at Grenada, which ooccasioned con- Occ

read a chapter. I will read from the fith the
chapter of the Book of James. It says: ther

12. But above all things, my brethren,
swear not ; neither by heaven, neither by

let your yea be yea, and your nay nay ;
lest ye fall into condemnation.
The codYlusion of his address on this
occasion is as follows :
"in conclusion, my fellow-workingmen,
I offer this sentiment:
"Awake I arise our work begins anew.
We'll show these thevesmand bondholders what wolk
ngmeann cn do.
We'll do t with our bullets, if our ballots the do fall.
And we'll drive these moon eyed lepers back by
steamshlp and by rail."
"This sentiment," says the Pilot," was in
terrupted with outburste of applause, the
line "We'll do it with our bullets, if our
ballots they do fail," being greeted with
the most violent and prolonged demonstra
tion of approbation on the part of Mr.
Kearney's auditors."
From the editorials in last week's Pilot
we take these extracts:
We waited and listened before we made
up our minds at out Dgnnis Kearney. We
published his speeches without comment.
We proposed to Judge him not by what
others said, but by his own words. * *
It must be admitted that sinee Dennis
Kearney came East he has not brought
forward a single idea for the consideration
of intelligent men. "Pool your issues,"
he cries in every speech ; but he does not
attempt to define or propose what the
issues shall be. "Capture the State," he 1
shouts; but he gives no asuggestion of a i
policy when the State is "captured." We I
are not of those who oppose and contemn I
a workingman who assumes to be a leader.
We welcome ohim as a healthy sign of <
democracy. But workingmen like other t
men must proceed according to civilized t
methods. A union of men, utterly without r
a policy, except the desire of "capturing a
State" so as to control its official power, a
would be a dangerous and uncivilized a
factor. The workingmen of this country a
need wise leaders. There are half a score t
of burning questions for their cobsidera- a
tion and action. Has Dennis Kearney any I
messageto deliver on any of these subjecteh a
The workingmen are all divided on their t
iessues. In another column we give fifty o
or sixty remedies proposed by working- e
men to the Hewitt Committee, ranging all 2
the way fromhbeabofltion of labor and prop- b
erty to the abolition of money and govern- .
ment. On which of these, or on what else a
are the workingmen to agree ?
Dennis Kearney's repeated allusions to e
"ballets, if ballots fail" is crass ignorance 1
and deflance of 'temocratic principles. it
There is no danger of ballots failing. If
the workingmen of this country have in- a
telligence enough to be united-for it takes II
intelligent and practical ideas to unite o
men-they are sure to succeed, for they ti
have the majority in numbers. To talk of o
"bullets" simply proves that the intelli- 1
gence to unite is absent, and this is to libel a
the workingmen. fi
Shall the workingmen support free trade
or protection t Which is best for them, c
gold, silver, untaxed bonds, inflation, or t
an "inconverttible paper currency t" Shall I
the Government seise the railroads ? Shall a

Have you anything to say, man, that is
worth saying 1 The country will listen to
f you. Do you really represent the working
men, or, using the name of the working.
- men, have you simply come to Massachn
setts as the hired stump orator of General
Butler I
Remember, Kearney, it is no enemy who
speaks. Every word we say here will
reach the eyes or ears of a million work
ingDmen.
In their name, for their ainterests, we
condemn your intemperate coarse. You
commit a crime when your furious and
blind utterances hold up the cause of La
bor to public derision.
It iascharged that you are "a Protestant
Irishman and an Orangeman." We don't
care for that-though we don't believe it.
You have not come as an Irishman, a
German, a Protestant or a Catholic-but
plainly as a Citizen. That is good; and
now all we ask of you is from this out to
study the real wrongs of workingmen and
propose remedies : to abandon abuse and
adopt argument; to admit that it is not a
crime to grow rich by honest means; to
make friends for the workingmen, not
enemies; to eay something )reeti evb( f
time you speak, and not to speak till you
have the useful word ready; to say no
thing about General Butler, but a great
deal about the reasons why workingmen
should vote for him; in a word to be a
leader by prudence, foresight and common
sense, instead of by filthy adjectives,
riotous allusions, absurd advice and brase
kettle oratory.
IS THERE TO BE ANOTHEB I
- FAMINE.
Boston Pilot.
The year 1878 will be memorable as one
of famines. India, China and Brasil have
received its devastating visits. In India, r
as Lrd Napier declared in the House of t
Lords on the 26th ult., the ground in some ii
parts was covered with the bones of human J
victims, in Mysore alone, one third of the
population having disappeared. In China tl
a Catholic Bishop stated that people had 0
devoured members of their own family, C
recalling the scenes of 450 in Italy. And d
now in Morocco it is asserted that 3,000,000 a
persons are suffering from want of food, a
and thousands are in a state of starvation, g
and a resident writes that "the famine will a
grow worse from month to month." h
The territory under British rule appears is
to be peculiarly unfortunate in the visits
of famine. It devastated England in 1193,
1395 and 1438, so that the people were it
compelled to devour dogs and make bread tt
of fern roots; and there were also three s
great famines in that country during the m
Iast century. In Bengal in 1771, nearly
the whole population was swept away, he
and even within the last twelve years hi
British India was visited by famine three gi
times. Lt
Once more from Ireland come the omino di
one symptoms of famine. The failure of sa
the potato crop threatens for the seventh n
time within this century, to bring on its of
ravages. There is danger that the scenes hi
may be renewed of 1814, 1816, 1822, 1831, th
ard of 1846 and '47, in which latter years, th
according to John Martin, there were half at
a million victims. It is significantly stated dr
that the present season in Ireland as beer,
almost a precise repetition of that in 1847.
From King's County, Galway, Kildare, and
other counties come roports of the potato
blight, and in some cases it is said the tur
nips are also attacked. A Moneymore to
correspondent of the Doblin Freemas, July
26, states that in that section the potato
hanlms ere black and the tubers tainted. l,(
A Galway paper states that near Bailiu- dy
aeloe the stalks are, in almost every ase, col
withered, a circumstance never known bi
within living memory so early. The Irish Tb
Farmer, in a lengthy article on the crops
in the West and northwest of Ireland, says: of
"Lsst year the potatoes of all kinds were
an almost total failure, the yield in some me
lnstances not paying for a tenth of the cost sd
of planting, and if a similar disaster were ab
to befall the people this year, little short tbi
of a famine would be the result. Tae sio
Farmer, however, speaks hopefully and ku
says that if dry weather should set in, no obh
further danger need be apprehended. w`
The last Irish famine showed that the lb°
country produced enough to feed twice as
the population. Vast quantities of land Tb
lay unreclaimed while hundreds of thou- oi
sands starved. O'Connell slid that if
Ireland had a parliament of her own, they
would meetithe evil by temporarily closinlg th
Irish ports against the exportation of food, no
sad stopping distillation. Yet that was wl
the time when the British Parliameat is be
repealing the Corn Laws Ia Bogisad, im
t b Irst l tesmoy patleg
b prices, while absentee landlords s
most of their means out of Ireland.
J we hope that before another famine
| visit Ireland, she will have a home Par- -
liament to meet it with home legislation.
