UtSISXVlLLE, Friday, l'ith.Atha Thomas of "Wil- iamson, on the 22d ballot, was elected tState Treasurer. Mrs. S. J. Hattoti, of Wilson county, was re elected State Librariau, last Tuesday, receiving 101 votes on joiut ballot. TENNESSEE. Saturday, Jau. 20, ISS'.i. The committee to settle with the Comptroller have investigated his accounts and found them correct, well ept and satisfactory. The newly elected Treasurer, Atha Thomns, has given bond for 100,000, and qualified a3 Treasurer of the State. Is u 8100.000 bond sufficient for the Treasurer?. Mr. Thomas will doubt less act with fidelity, but late and sad experience has shown a $100,000 bond insufficient to protect the tax-payers We care not luw good a man is, let his bond be sufficient' to indemnify the pounds? If any railroad management can give a good reason for the differ ence we would be glad to have them do so, and will cheerfully give them reasonable ppace in the Standard for the name free of charge. When we ask for a reduction we are told that this road (the McMiunville branch) does not pay expenses, aud for this reason we must pay high rates. If this is true the management should be changed. We would advise the stock holders at once to call a meeting and lease the road. It is not good policy to run a road at a loss when the same may be made to pay a profit. Wo have been informed by good authority that there is a responsible party who would take the road (McMiunville branch) for five years and pay for the use of it that length of time $50,000 in advance. . So if it is true that the road does not pay expenses under its present management, the stockholders would do well to lease it out as soon as possible. State against loss. It A fuiOAlPF It EIG UTS. The question of appointing raflroac commissions to assist in bringing nbout a more equitable and uuif'orm rate o freight.-, throughout the country, is now la-inn- tu'itated in Congress and the States. The rapidly increasing pro ducts of the country demand a corres ponding reduction in freight tariffs. Treasurer Polk. On Saturday morning last, at 9 o'clock, Treasurer Tolk, in charge of his captors, II. L. Gosling, U. S. Mar shal, and others, arrived in Nashville, Several huudred persons were assembled at the Chattanooga depot to witness the return of the defaulting Treasurer, When the train arrived the party in charge with Mr. Polk made their way to a carriage in waiting and weredriveu to the county iail, where Mr. Polk was turned over to the officials of that ill stitution. Mr. Polk refused to make any statement iu reference to the mat ter of the State finances or himself.

As to the correctness of the more than to Atlanta, notwithstanding report of the committee as to the lia- endeavoured to learn the real cause of the advance in clover seed. It may be somewhat speculative, but most likely the principal reason is the shortness of the western crops, and the largely in creased foreign demand. If clover con tinues to advance as it has during . the present month, for a week or two longer, it will reach its full value, and the man who has harvested his seed in good shape wiil realize full compensation for bis trouble of growing and taking care of it if he has not sold' too Boon. Ve are anxious to see the day come when Warren and other counties around us, will fully realize the importance of growing and sowing more of their own seeds. We must grow more grass, and to do this we must make our seed at home. lie who adopts this policy early and continues will not only great- y improve his farm but will doubtless, in a few years, largely increase his rofits. The high price of clover seed may prevent some farmers from sowing clover as freely as they would other- wise do. This should not be the case One bushel to ten acres usually giyes a pretty good start. At $10 per bushel the expenses would be $1 Jper acre While this is more than we paid for the last three or four years, we should not fail to sow on this account. The New Governor. Gov. Wm. B.

Follow ing is his INAUGURAL ADDRESS Mr. President und Gentlemen of the IToufle of Representatives, aud you, Ladies and Gentlemen my fellow-citizens : At uo time in the history of Ten m T 1 nessee has au incoming legislature been looked to, at home and abroad, 1 with prouder satisfaction aud deeper anxiety than this. Certain!) no one has met under more peculiar auspices or invested with more delicate trusts ; neither has one heretofore tt.-sembled brought with it the wishes of constituency more gen erously confided or more emphatically voiced by majorities at the polls. The prayers of a Christian and noble peo ple," go out for, and unto you, for just, wise, honorable and successful legisla tion.

Is it not a plain case of discrimination ? Can any railroad management give a plausable reason for such differences ? If so, let them do so. We do not desire, nor would we in tentionally do injustice to railroads. hat we may have to say from tune to lime about railroads, will be said for the purpose of arriving at truth. We recognize the fu't that railroads have rights which must be respected, but as public carriers they have no right to discriminate or oppress one class to fa vor another. We, as farmers and merchants, are charged 54 cents per hundred for hauling our clover and farmer, if he has not been fortunate United States Senator. Ou Tuesday, 16th, Senator Isham O. Harris was re-elected to the U. e. Senate on the first ballot. Senator Harris received iu the Senate 17 votes; iu the House, 58 ; total 75. Col. Sav age received iu the Senate 5 and iu the House 12, total 17. K. II. Butler, Republican, received in the Senate 8 nnd'in the House 23, total 31. There were a few scattering votes in both Houses. FIELD SEEDS. The lime is near at hand when the other field seeds from Nashville to Mc Minuville, and our neighbor, who hap pens to be a manufacture, gets bis ma terial hauled tlie same instance, over the same road, for 15 cents per bun dred. This may be right, and may not be discrimination, but it' so we fail to see it. We are glad to see manu facturers protected and encouraged by low rates and in every other legitimate way, and would not have their rates increased. Whiltt manufacturer;,' rates are comparatively low, they are not re duced Mow what will pay the roads. At least it is hardly probable that they would give rates so low as not to pay a profit. If the road? can haul manu facturers' material for 15 cents does it not nine:ir reanabie that they could haul seeds for farmers and merchants, j twice of saving the grass seMs espec too, at les than 54 cents per hundred j ially Bed Ton and clover? We have enough to have made and taken care of his seeds at home, to look about to procure them. He should have de termined what seeds he will need for spring sowing before this and if not al ready procured should be looking after them. Most field seeds are likely to be higher, especially clover seed, which has advanced iu price $2 withiu the last fifteen days. We would advise every farmer who has clover seed in chaff to save it and save the expense of buy ing seed. So with Red Top seed; if you have hay with seeds iu it suf ficiently matured you would do well to save not only for yourself but to sell to your less fortunate neighbor. How long until our farmers ot Warren and adj. lining couuties will learn theiwpor- ign or domestic, or obligations were seriously affected by it, the final adjust ment and relief has generally come in a spirit of compromise by waiving rigid technicalities and enforcing just, lib eral and honorable equities. Tennessee to-day finds herself con fronted with just such obligations; am alter repeated and unavailing efforts heretofore made by conference with creditors, and by legislativeenactments, and recognizing the fact that this is a government of, by and for the people that all power is inhereut in them; and they, as voters and tax-payers, are the real parties to whatever obligations ex ist against the state has, as she ought to have done, spoken through her source of power, the ballot-box, in no uncertain tone, and sanctioned by an overwhelming majority, the proposi tion to tender to her creditors a settle ment, which is alike just and honora ble to all parties concerned Bv this expression, so recently given, it will be seen that Tennessee does not shrink from assuming to pay, accord- to the letter and spirit of her obliga tion, however burthensome it may be, that which she believes and acknowl edges she justly owes, known as the "state debt proper." That known to the public, and named in the official reports of most of our state comptrollers, as "contingent" or "railroad indebtedness" being in dispute, and our liabilities for it ques tioned bv a large portion of intelligent and patriotic voters and tax-payers of the state, and who likewise claim equi ties, as just and honorable ofliets, she, by a decided vote, authorizes in a spirit of compromise, a tender of terms of settlement to creditors, of one-half of principal and interest; which, it is hoped and believed, will be met in the spirit with which it will be tendered, ii n i i i . .Hi . ana a tun, nnai ana sausiaciory seme ment effected. Among other questions of moment, and with which you have to grapple, is the spirit of monopoly that is rearing its ominous crest and moving with ue--fiant and aggressive steps upon the rights of the people. Those who have been chosen as guardians of these right, in these times distempered by lobby ism, with its baneful fruit of bribery and corruption and official defalcations, must and will stand faithful sentinels on this the watch-tower of their citadel. While corporations should have all jusl rights iimiiitttined, and proju-r en couragement to make their work useful and profitable, yet, as they grow mighty in their strength, and strain for unjust power as they are prone to do, they should be chocked by lines of le gal limit, and told iu uumistakable terms "Thus far shalt thou go, and no further." The spirit of resentment or intolerance, however, should not stir the storm, of passion, nor ride on the wave of prejudice, but give way to that calmer reason which respects the rights of all. If law is, as it is said to be. "the perfection of reason," then that reason should be alike the shield to innocence and the sword to guilt It should protect uud punish alike the official aud unofficial, the rich and the oor, the humble and the great,' the black and white when the law fails iu lis, it fails in its great mission. Our state, so full of eventful history; so renowned in council aud in arms ; with only one-fourth of her 26,000,000 of acres under culture, exhibits but tardy progress in compaiison with some of her sister states. 'Tis true that the ravages of the war during our inter-state struggle, and the ittle less destructive consequences that immediately followed, crippled the ma terial resources, paralyzed the euergies of our once ballot-denied people, and gave additional weight to our burdeu of debt yet, let us not at a time like this sing the Iliad of our woes, but bo done with the past, save to profit by itd experience and enjoy the aroma of its history; for Hope, with pleasing prospects beneath her bow ot promise, 6miles as she beckons us to the future that future is the path we have to tread, aud it should be doue with uu- faltering step. . lhen let us, like the antique wrest ler, when thrown iu the Btruggle, rise the greater for the tail.
