I). F. WRIGHT, M. !., Editor. Clarksville, Tfenn., Aug. 23, 1S79. TERMS ta.ft 1ST AOVAKCE. jlDVE rKEE.TIAX OS THE AXTI- co.nrHo.niE vote. Our present course in reference to the recent vote Is to gain all the Information we can in reference to the true meaning of that vote before we decide upon the adoption of any policy as its result, and in pursuance of that course we have been care fully examining what has been said by men of various schools of politics about it. Judze Freeman, who is a Tennessean. a Republican and an employe of the present Govern rnent, has been giving his views on the subject, and we propose to scru tinize them in the present paper For this purpose we clip from the Baltimore American a eommunica tion which purports to be the result of an interview with the Jude The same in substance has appeared in Tennessee papers, but the paper now extracted by us is evidently ihe form in which the Judge's opinions are to be impressed on Ieople outside of the State, and we therefore give them exactly as they are reiorted in the paper we have named : Washinhtox, A iik list 12. The recent Tfunw! election eoutinaeH to elworb at tention here, ami a ditti-renee of opinion Heeim mill toexist resanlinKtlieRigninoince of ilK result. Judge freeman, the Assistant Attorney-Oeuerui for the Poslottice Depart ment, who is a native of Tennessee ami a lirant Kepuhlican, taken rather a different view of the matter from that expressed by I'OKtinaKter-tieneral Key In the interview whieli appeared In these dispatehenon Won day last. Judge Freeman, like nearlyevery oilier llepubliean In the tstave, Ix'tongs to the State credit party. He visited Tennessee during the recent eiva.-, and was opposed to the proposition to compromise the State debt, lie traveled through Kastern, Middle and Western Tennessee, and heard Senator 1 taii ley and Savage, the two champions for and against an honest settlement of the debt, anil i ul-ri ii tr from all he beam and saw he is of opinion that the issue presented in the recent election was uot a representative Issue. The proposition whs opHsed by a large number of State credit men lecause tlicv rtmmifd the scheme as one of direi rep'uilialion of half the debt, with no addi lional assurance wb.uever for the payment f the other lialf. They also HI, he said, that the pliii was a cH-rcive oue. Judge Freeman admitted that t litre was also n large iiuinltero'i State credit men in favor 01 the compromise, thinking it the liest they coulil nope to do, and mat a majority 01 in reii'idiators were opposed to the wbenie. Ii the laimuasre of one of the repudiators. they hope to kill half thedebt first and allow the other half to die afterwards ; or, us was aptly illustrated by him, you cut a snake in half. on part may die at once and the otliei crawls awav ami dies afterwards. Vet not withstanding this. Judge Freeman holds to the opinion that the defeat of the compro mise was the Pest thing mat could nappe lor the State creditors. He thinks thu even though the proposition had been adopb-d. the Leitishtture would not bav Is-en disrsised to make provision for til pavmcnl even of the half, and Gov. Mark himself, who is a repudiutor. would hav lone not bins towards securing the creditors. Judge Freeinau thinks that next year a de cisive stand will be taken upon the proposi t ion of the creditors to accept sixty cents on . the dollar, at six per cent. Interest, and that arrangement he thinks will finally lie agreed to. He predicts that the State credit men without resrard to nartv. will meet in a con vention and uominate candidates, from iovernor down. As the mass of uiitl-repu dintorsare Itepublicans, these nomination! w ill lie supported bv nearly every Kepubli can, as welt as bv all honest Democratic and w ill in all urohabilit v le electel. The tigh he thinks, will Im made upon the issue of lion. -sly and good fuitn. 1 be Issue, thus iar, cannot le said to be a party one, hut It IS I notorious fact that the repudiators are com iHscd almost entirely of I V-nlocruls. In conclusion. Judge F reeman expressed lllf UCIIfl llllli III rCNK-i It, lilt? 1-TfllllllK tional election Tennessee should lie Hum- Isntl as a doubtful Slate. He tliinks it quite proliahle tliat that state may go Re publican, with the aid of such honest Dem ocrats as have tiecome disgusted with the weak and uncertain course ol their party on the debt question. The attentive observer of this statement will, we think, come to the same conclusion as we did which is that the Judjre was more intent uon making capital for the Republican party than upon any satisfactory settlement of the State debt. We are informed that Judge Freeman used his influence, and we believe, voted against the pro posed compromise. We will do him the justice to infer that he did so from the motive he assigns to other Republicans and to some State credit Democrats who also voted against it, namely, that he "regarded the scheme as one of di rect repudiation of half the debt, and that he considered the scheme "a coercive one," as it affected the State creditor. At the same time we cannot shut our eyes to the fac that the defeat or the measure was directly conducive to the very state of affairs w hich in his view is so favorable to Republican interven tion in State affairs, with the cheer ing hoi t',at "'n the coming na tional election the State may go Republican, with the aid of such honest I emocrats as have beconi disgusted with the weak and uncer tain course of their party on the debt question." We here mrt company with the .Tudjre altogether. "The wish was father to the thought" which let! him to that conclusion, and his opinion is based upon estimates frroneons in several ioints. We will point out some of his erroneous au nipt ions. He assumes that the "mass of anti-repudiutors are Re publicans," and by implication that the State credit Democrats are a small minority in the Democratic lrty, and that these few will fall in as the rear guard of the Republi can party, which is to carry the first compromise at sixty and six and, at the same time, help to carry the State for a Republican candidate in the Presidential election. Neither of these assumptions is true. The Republicans do not con stitute the mass of the anti-repudia-tr, nor are the opponents of repu diation a minority in the Demo cratic party. So far is this from iHMiig tho case that if every Repub lican were left out of the State 11 ulation, and with them the negroes, w ho are ccitainly not Democrats, the remaining white vole would 1 overwhelmingly against repudia tion and in favor of that very com promise at sixty and six on which Judge Freeman avows his readiness t3 unite with the State credit Dem ocrats. It is the position of the negro vote in Tennessee which leads to so much misunderstanding and misrepresentation of this question outside of the State. We have more than once endeavored to place this matter before the public in its true light; we now make one further effort in that direction. The negro population throughout this, county and, as we believe, throughout a large portion of the State, is irretrievably given up to the repudiation heresy. How they became so shall now I stated. A few months before the last national election Col. Savage came to this city to make one of his repudiation speeches. 1 1 is audience consisted of a few white of the neighboring districts and a largo assemblage of negroes ; his speech wan largely ad dressed to the latter element. Ha told them that the debt whs con tracted without their concurrence and not for their benefit ; that they had been slaves at the time and had had no voice in assenting or dissent ing, and that it would be a gross njustice if they should be called pon to pay it. Those who know the sro race know well how such considerations would go down with them; they have since that time been repudiators pure and simple to man. The Republicans at that time had unlimited influence with the negroes and could have re claimed them from the influence of Savage if they had tried. Did they do so? Alas, no; very much the reverse. When the election came on, Judge G. Smith was the State credit candidate for the Legislature, nom inated by the regular convention of the Democratic party, and Esquire Frederick, the low tax candidate, nominated by an irregularly called convention calling itself independ ent and including all the repudia ting element in the county. The day before the election a meeting was held by this Independent Low- tax party and the Republican party, and as the result of it the whole Republican and low-tax force of the county, including all the repudia tors, voted for Frederick against Smith, and the combination were beaten by the latter by a small ma jority. Now how does this tally with the assumption that the Re publican party constitute the mass of the anti-repudiation element in Tennessee? Judge Smith in this election had no support at all except that of the regular Democratic ! party, being nominated by that party on a State credit platform ; and yet with that support he wa3 able to beat the repudiating mal contents of the Democracy and the Republicans, including the solid negro vote. And in one form or another the same thing has been done throughout the State. The repudiating element in' the Demo cratic party, small in itself, has always been able to make itself formidable by an alliance with the Radical party whenever by such a coalition there has been a chance to beat the regular nominee of the Democracy. And this is the history of the growth of repudiation in Tennessee. It was originally a mere excrescence on the Democratic party, and would have remained so but for the in trigues of the Republican managers, who kept themselves in the back ground and manipulated the negro vote so as to foment the growth of that excrescence. This by such fomentation has grown from being a mere wart or freckle on the body of the Democracy until it has as sumed the dimensions and character of a malignant cancer preying on the vitals not only of the Demo cratic party, but of the whole body politic in Tennessee. Thus much for the facts as alleged by Judge Freeman. As to his pro posal for an alliance of the State ciedit Democrats with the Republi cans of Tennessee for the purpose of settling the State debt, we have only this to say : that before such an alliance could be consummated, the Republicans would have the difficult task before them of con vincing the Democrats that they are acting in good faith, and not seeking a mere party advantage under pretence of contending for the credit of the State. The Judge's manifesto would have had more in fluence with us if he had wit held for the present his expectations of carrying over the Presidential vote of Tennessee to the Republican can didate, in virtue of the financial troubles of the State. WASIIINOTOHi WOJI EX. Indications now and then come to the surface symptomatic of a state of things in our national capi tal far from favorable to the purity either of our political or our social system, and unfortunately these in dications ioint to a source of cor ruption in a "quarter to which we are accustomed to look for a pure and healthful impulse, the influence of woman in politics and society. Of course we are not including all female society in this category ; we know well that there are women of pure and noble characters there who are a blessing an well as an orna ment to society, whose benignant sway softens the asjerities of fac tion's warfare and throws a halo of social amenity over the ferocious struggle for place and power which would be simply revolting but for that softening influence. Partisan considerations have never deterred us from recognizing the admirable qualities of Mrs. Hayes in her ca pacity as the foremast lady in the Washington circle, and we know her to lie surrounded by a number of the noblest and best as well as the most attractive women who represent there the elite of the American wives and mothers; but the influence of these is social, not political, and it is not to be con cealed that Mrs. Hayes would be more prominently a power n party politics herself felt as if her moral influence in society were less healthful. We are constantly reminded of the existence of a numerous body of female politicians whose influ ence is more nctive in party politics and far less salutary in social circles than those we have alluded to. Of course at this distance it is only by occasional glimpses that we get an insight into this feature of Wash ington affairs. At one time the wife of a Cabinet officer manages the fraudulent transactions of her husband's bureau in order to furnish means for the expenses of her bril liant saloons ; at another the em ployees of a public office are found to be selected on tho same principle as those of a Turkish seraglio and for tho same purpose. At another an aged politician, once a Cabinet Minister and still an active partisan, is subjected to blackmail at the hands of an audacious political ad venturess, and escapes the natural consequences of such a position only to furnish a miserable spectacle as an imbecile and lecherous old Pant aloon ; and now the daughter of a Chief Justice and wife of a Senator and ex-Governor is compromised in reputation by a disreputable fracas between her husband and another Senator, a leading politician and once a prominent candidate for the Presidency. We are not assuming the guilt of Mrs. Sprague in the grosser sense of the word: On the contrary, we deny that any proof whatever has been given of it, and choose to as sume her innocence in the absence of evidence. But what makes the game of politics dangerous for women, to dabble in and demoral izing to the politicians who may be influenced by them is that women of every grade are engaged in it, from the highest and mightiest leader of fashion, against whose reputation not a whisper must be uttered, to the notoriousadventuress from the demi-monde who brings her sexual attractions to Washing ton as the best market for their disposal. Wide apart as are the extremes of this series, the line which separates them becomes scarcely distinguishable where they approach one another. There is the great lady whose husband by his wealth or official position is able to place her at once on an eminence from which. In virtue of its mere position, political influence radiates, Mere admission to the charmed circle of which she is a centre is an endorsement for recognition in the magic penetralia of exclusive fash ion. Imposing as her prestige is, her influence is not nearly as potent among politicians as that of some others to lie mentioned, and extends chiefly to such Senators and Con gressman as have their wives and j daughters with them in behalf of whom they are tempted to seek ad mission into those realms of light, and pay for it by political subserv iency. Next comes a class of soceresses whose object it is to be recognized as among the legitimate sovereigns above described, but who have not the wealth or official status on which their supremacy is based. What they lack in external advantages they make up by their personal qualities; they are pretty or witty or both, and know well the arts of allurement by which the opposite sex is attracted and held in alle giance ; they are not among those who entertain the ladies of Mar quises and Barons and Ambassa dors, nor can they blaze in diamonds and satins and plumes, though they hope to do so, and the Marquises and Barons themselves are wont to desert the statelier and duller circles frequented by their consorts for the gayer and more piquant pleasures of the second class. The purpose of this class is, if they are married, to gain official position for their hus bands, or, if maids or widows, to get husbands already endowed with wealth or office. In short, being second class, they live on the hope of rising to first class, but in perpet ual danger of falling to third class. Class No. 3 brings us to the verge of the demi-monde. It consists chiefly ol those who were in class No. 2, but have lost their hold upon it in playing the dangerous game which is the chief occupation of the latter ; for No. 2 is indeed engaged in a dangerous game, that of cajol ing and holding captive the power ful of the other sex by means of the attractions peculiar to their own. It is indeed an unequal game; a handsome and dashing Western girl, accustomed to the freedom and fraukness of her Western home, thinks she can safely play the Mime pranks in Washington as she did at home ; but she is in a different at mosphere. At home every gentle man is a nrotector. and. instead of desiring to take an unworthy ad vantage of the careless abandon of her ways, is ready to strike to the earth any libertine who would. She Jives, in fact, in a land of chiv alry, where Ucr se,v is a claim on the championship of tho opposite sex, and she has unlimited confi dence in their devotion. But in Washington she breathes a different atmosphere; she lives, not among loyal knights, but cold, hard, though brilliant and polished voluptuaries. With them she plays an unequal game. The betrayal of her confi dence, which with her beaux at home would be looked upon as in famy, would be a feather in the cap of one of these heartless libertines, and it is an object with them, if not to seduce and ruin, at least to get the credit of it and compromise the woman whom they fail to conquer. Thus she sinks to class No. 3, a .coterie of women whose reputation is clouded rather than destroyed, who are treated coldly or even shunned by their own sex, and sought bv the pleasure-seekers" of the other with the more freedom because they know that they shall not meet their own wives, sisters or daughters there. Their reputation being only doubtful, they remain in those doubtful circles, but are always in peril, and one after another falls to class No. 4. These are ladies whose reputation is no longer doubtful, but one k nown to have fallen. Alas, Its ranks are constantly recruited from No. 3, whose very attraction for the men who resort t: its circle is that the restraint which sex imposes is there relaxed, that the case and freedom of the club-room is carried by them into the saloons and parlors of this dubious society. There is in fact but a slight diifcrence on the surface between No. 3 and No. 4, and only an expert, one who has been taught the difference, can find it out, for the denizens of No. 4 have fallen from No. 3, perhaps even from 2, ami preserve in a measure the ex ternal observances of the realms from which they have fallen. It is not necessary to describe No. i). They are women who have never been looked upon as fit deni zens for the other circles, and have been brought to the capitol by men who have selected them from the demi-monde, or have come there on their own motion to see what they can pick up. The dangoF to yoman,s reputa tion in Washington Is the exceeding fineness of the lines which divide these domains from one another, or rather the absence of any lines at all. A lady who begins in No. 2, if she falls to rise to No. 1 is in con stant danger of finding herself in No, 3, before she is aware of it, and then Facllls descensus Avern! ; Bed revocaiu gradum, Miperasuuo evadere ad auras, ITic labor, hoc opus est. Thank God, we have a class of Washington ladies who belong to none of the circles above described. Ladies who go there with their hus ftandsj and who if they do not find themselves in No. 1 decline to enter into competition with the en terprising dames of No. 2, but re serve their social qualities for the entertainment of their husbands and their husbands' friends. Happy is be, be he young or old, who finds himself admitted on this list, for he will find himself in a place where female society exerts its legitimate influence, that of elevatii g and puri fying all that comes within its sway, and leaves to others the perilous paths tf iKjlitical intrigue, with the privilege of entertaining Ambassa dorsand dancing with their attaches; but those who desire such admission will find it a more carefully guard ed privilege even than that of figur ing in the more brilliant haunts of No. , for the criterion of admissi bility is plainly and simply that of being a gentleman, with all the qualities, moral and intellectual, which concur to complete tfie defi nition of the term. The external won't do, be they ever so splendid ; honor, which shrinks from baseness of every form, is the basis of that character, and in the circles where that qualification is indispensable, if such can be found in Washington (and they can be found if sought for), there is the purest and safest resort for man or woman in our National Capitol. Tlie Cabinrts of tbe I'nivcrrlt jr. (CONTINUED.) The types of life in this mid-era of the world, approach the modern to a certain extent particularly is this the case in the later portion of it, the Cretaceous Period. It is in deed a transition time, the old forms dying out, and more familiar features being gradually assumed. Some of the life remains are very beautiful. Here is a large collection of most exquisite Pentacrinite stems, perfectly pentagonal, and their surfaces richly marked ; they would please the eye of the most indifferent observer. These speci mens are from Germany and the United States. There are also two splendid representatives of Encri nus Liliformis from Solenhofen. A neighboring drawer contains one hundred Belemnites, another characteristic type. Their form, is that of a pointed cone, from one to four inches in length, resembling considerably a cigar. This is a very interesting Fossil it is the internal bone of an ancient Cuttle-fish, the analogue of the so-called Pen-and- ink fish, frequently .obtained from the Atlantic. It is, however, not a fish, but a Mollusk ; a naked Cepha lopod, of high organization. It contains an ink-bag within a cavity of this bone, the black coutents of which it squirts forth behind U when necessity demands, in order that it may thereby elude its pur suer. This ink-bag containing the black pigment has often been found in a fossil state. The name of this fossil is from belemnon, meaning a dart. But we pass on to another Cepha lopod form, which is also a very distinguishing feature of this age the Ammonite, successor to the Orthoceras and the Goniateofthe Paleozoic, and a congener of the modern Nautilus. It is character ized as a close-coiled chambered shell, the septa being very elabor ately frilled, the external portion of the shell highly ribbed and orna mented; and the siphuncle (the tube by which communication is kept up between the outer chamber and the inner apartment) dorsal. A beautiful specimen is here seen, from Oberstein, Germany, cut through perpendicularly to the septa, the surface of section being polished. The inner arrangement is splendidly represented, the ma terial of the partition walls having been substituted, in the process of petrifaction, by Iron pyrites, while the chambers have been filled in with Calcite and in some cases with Red Oxide of Iron, thus most hand somely mapping out the boundaries of the original structure. The spec imens of Ammonites are from Ger many, France, England and the United States. These typical clos coiled Ammonites were succeeded in the Cretaceous Period by more or less uncoiled varieties we have here representatives of Baculites, Hamites, Scaphites one huge frag ment of a huge Ancyloceras from Pngland is very noticeable. Among Lamellibranehs, we find some handsome representatives the three sided bivalve, Trigonia, with its ornamental lines of tuber cles, is present in specimens from England; as also from this country. The Oyster family is here intro duced in the shape of the genus Gryphea, some species of which are quite attractive. The Exogyra, also, is a nearly related form. Ostrea too, has a number of very quaint looking specimens, the edges of whose valves are deeply but rather regularly dentated, giving to it a unique appearance. Several varie ties of Sponge are here. Sponges were very numerous during the Cretaceous, their siliceous spicules being supposed to have furnished the . material of the Flints of the Chalk beds. Besides the Crinoids already men tioned, and indeed entirejy sup? planting them towards the close of the age, we have many free Echi noids, as Cidaris Blumenbachii, several species of Anauchites, Gon iaster, etc. These forms are very numerous, handsome and quite modern in look. Vertebrates are represented by a specimen of Lep tolepls from Solenhofen, besides teeth of fishes and reptiles and not least, two fine impressions on the Red Sandstone of the Connecticut River Valley, the so-called bird tracks. They are three-toed, and about four inches in length. These are the most characteristic Fossils of this very interesting geo logical age. There are many other well worthy of description, which we leave unnamed; we now come to the survey of forms of life be longing to the Cenozoic Time, which are much more familiar to the eye than those already noticed, being nearly related to the exiting regime; they in consequence, need but little at our hands. During the Tertiary Age, a grow ing resemblance is to be seen, to the now existing forms. Although the species in general differ from those of our own day, there is not a suffi cient dissimilarity to render them unrecognizable, i We see many spe cies of Oyster, more like the modern than those belonging to the Creta ceous one large specimen is know n as Ostrea Georgiana, very thick and heavy. You can easily recognize the Turritella, the Cardita, the Area, the Pecten, the Cyprea, among the Mollusks some of them having the freshness of appearance characteriz ing a modern shell. Sharks' teeth are numerous, and bones of Verte brate animals. One peculiar Fossil is known as Nummulite, a fiat, discoid, coin-shaped Foraminifer (Protozoan) calcareous, and com pounded of many cells. Two fine specimens are from New Jersey; a large number of smaller ones from the Isle of Wight, and other trans Atlantic localities. In some sec tions these Fossils constitute the material, almost entirely, of the Limestone, which is then called Nummulitic Limestone. The Pyr amids of Egypt are largely con structed of this. The first period of the Quaternary Age, is the Glacial ; here represented by one specimen of Gkiciation from New York, the parrallel furrows, not deep, indicating the action upon the dark Limestone surface, of some scratching or grooving instru merit, moved by a considerable force. Some interesting Mastodon relics are seen, from Wilson county, Ten nessee; one large tooth, with its nipple-like protuberances greatly worn ; two smaller milk-teeth ; ai a portion of the tusk and of the femur of one of these huge animals Of the remains of Man and his works, there are some interesting specimens here is a piece of a human bone imbedded in Stalag mitecontaining land shells,obtained in 1825 from a Limestone cave in East Tennessee, and "presented by Mr. Jas. Leckie." There was also found in the same place, a bead made of the spine of a Strombus this is also in the University collec tion. In this connection, we might mention that there is here a piece of the Shell Limestone from the Island of Guadaloupe, from the for mation containing the human skele tons which created such a stir some years ago in the scientific world, which skeletons are now in the museums of Paris, London and Charleston, South Carolina. There are some Indian bones (among them, one almost per feet skull), obtained from the stone coffins of the burial places of the aborigines, near Clarksville, by Prof. Caldwell, assisted by Messrs. Mallard, Cox and Leslie of the University ; also pieces of pot tery and flint arrow heads. Two splendid specimens of implements of ihe polished stone age (Neolithic) from South Clarksville, were lately presented by Dr. D. F. Wright, of the Chronicle ; and another, more recently, by Master James Patton Anderson (from Culleoka, Tenn.) There is also a small but beautiful axe (?), polished, from Provence, France. There are too, some Mexi can specimens made of Obridian (volcanic glass). We trust that this brief and very imperfect resume of the Paleonto logical specimens in the Cabinet, may afford a general idea of the scope and arrangement, and may stimulate some, to become better acquainted with the life characters of the earth during those long long ages anterior to the introduction of the human race.
