IWEETWATER, THURSDAY, APRIL, 7, 1870 The Supreme Bench. ' Sinew the ratitjoution of the New Con stitution, in this State, we tee the names of several gentlemen spoken of for seat on the Supreme Bench. As olJ Monroe done her duty in pari, we foel that we have the right to say who we prefer. We weuld willingly support any worthy gentleman in Knoxville or above there, but we a-k and shall insist that one of the candidates for the position be chosen from some county South of Knox, lion. T. Nixon Vandyke, of MoMinn, is one of the oldest k Lawyers in East Ten. nessce, and we feel certain that he will give general satisfaction, in lower, throughout Middle and West, and all over East Teuncsse. We have in Major D. M. Key, of Chattanooga, a lawyer well quali fied for the same position. Therefore, let upper, and lower East Tonuessee, compro mise the matter, by placing one candidate from each section, before the people, for election to tho position. We of this aeo tion wish to do right, and want thf 4Con servative party of Knox and upper East Tennessee, to do unto ns as wo would do unto them. At the same time we have no disposition to get up a division iu our party. Major Vandyko is our choice, and if Knox will place another good man in the field we will givo him our support. Death of Maj. M.H. Stephens. Wo regret to see announced in tho Americus Republican, the death of Maj. M. II. Stephens. He died on the morning of the 27th March, in Americus, Ga. He was a native of Iielaud, but had lived in Georgia and East Tennessee from a boy of 14 years old. In this county he had many warm friends. Was a true South ern gentleman. He entered the Confed erate army at the first tap of the drum, and was one of the best Qurtermasters in it, and ono who done his whole duty. He was under Genoral Vaughn during the war, ana mo ucnerai says no officer in that department of the Confederate army, ..... 1 l :..... '.

A correspondent in Mississippi "Is it true, as some of the Northern pa pers continue to assert, that the negro iievcis occupies Jlr. ltovis' old seat in the Senate?" No; it is not true. There was on effort made to secure it for him, but it failed. It was intended that the history of tho times should record, as "the grand- :.1 .r.l . .1 . sat prin juuucu 01 me uinoieomu century, that tho humble nogro Hiram Revels oc cupied in the United States Senate the seat in which once sat the arch-traitor Jefferson Davis. And in order to bring it about Sumner, Wilson and half a dozen other negro-worshipers approached Sena tor Ross, of Kansas, and said to him, "Arise, exchange seats with the man and brother, Revels, that history may tell, to the perpetual confusion of Southern chiv alry, that a despised negro occupies the seat of tho traitor Jeff Davis." Mr. Ross looked up from the sheet of paper upon which he was writing. "So this," said he, "is tho seat in which Davis used to sit ?" "-Yes," replied Sumner, "it is." "And you and the negro you've got here want me to get out of it and lot the negro get into it, do you?" "We do," answered Sumucr. "Then," said Ross, taking up his pen "I've only to say that I'll see you and the negro first." And thus it came to pass that the "grand providence" for which the Radical muse of history stood waiting, failed to take place. Revels. A writer in the Philadelphia Press (supposed to be Forney) thus speaks af "Senator" Revels: "Senator Revels was born in Fayette ville, Cumberland county, North Carolina, iu J 822. His mother was a white Scotch woman, though a slight trace of African , blood was known to exist in her family. His father was a dark mulatto, and an ed ucated minister of the Gospel. ' ; Alluding to tho effect of his speech, the same writer observes : . , . ; "Senator Revels did not grow pale un dcr tho ordeal, but his Scotch blood burn ed steadily, and the flame was visible through his bronzed cheek." Now that the Radicals have made much of a sort of quadroon, suppose they try a thorough-bred negro who really represents a race and not a mongrelism. Gollaoat.

J Editor Enttrpris: The result ef the recent election bere does not indicate the tone of political sentiment in Hamil ton eounty, except to far as it includes the ratification of the New Constitution. A large number of Conservatives, who Toted for the Constitution, supported the radical candidates for Sheriff, Tax Collec tor, &o., on personal grounds. Our newly-elected Sheriff has been barring a good deal of the party proscriptivenesa a con sistant Radical, and (I am afraid to say but) is a highly-esteemed and popular gentleman. The out-going Sheriff, 11. G. Campbell, Esq., baa made a faithful and efficient officer, but a alight taint of fish ioess having made itself apparent in his political composition, be was deserted in the hour of trial by many of his old friends, while be Tailed to secure a sufficient num. ber of new ones to make . up the loss. There are numbers, however, who voted against him and "against the grain," at the same time, knowing that they were helping to deprive the county of the ser vices of a man, wfcvV3 far as he had been tested, had proved himself to be officially capable ana Honest. I congratulate you on the result in ; Monroe county. Don't the whirlicii; of time make wonderful changes t I am not i surprised that Monroe has voted the Con servative ticket; but who would have thought twelve months ago of seeing a le gal notice iu your paper from nnder the very fist of bhcriff trippin 1 Then, he would have expended much of his valua ble time and all of his talent in the adorn ment of post-office doors and cross-roads guide posts, rather than have so compro mised bis cbaracter for unswerving loyalty. since 1 last wrote to you, this ambitious cluster of shanties, known as the great "To JJe," is several weeks nearer its destiny ; although it is by no means visible to the naked eye that any very gigantio strides have been made, within that time, toward the immense fulfilment. The Knoxville papers have been predicting for us anoth er baptism ; one to which the flood of 1867 is to have been a mere sprinkling. Rat, notwithstanding the interest express ed by them, particularly by the Press and Herald, in the welfare of Chattanooga, it is very evident that in this case the wish is tatner to the thought. Despite our rough by-ways, ragged houses, dilapidated darkies and their apparent evidences of being on the high road to the devil, gen erally, Knoxville sees that the future of Chattanooga will eolipse her own in every desirable point, and she is naturally in dignaot and jealous thereat. Other people see it too, and say it, and Knoxville gets mad enough to wish Chattanooga drown ed out. Should the watery visitation come close enough on the heels of a huge fire to save a dozen houses in Market Street, I don't know that in the end that this city would be the loser, Hut there is not tho slight est probability of an inundation, and although it is possible a few first-class funerals might expedite matters and prove even more benehcial than the fare and the flood, it is to be hoped that the Knoxvil- lains will be denied the temporary tri umph of seeing any of these disasters oc our in our midst. If you ask me why, if the prospective prosperity of Chattanooga is so certain, she does not give more signs of vitalit, now, yon have me at a disadvantage. oould not explain the matter without be ing personal, and people get shot at for doing that tort of thing bere. "Arter awhile" it will all come right, and you will see one of the graetest cities south of rod's country, with railroads leading to all of the most favored marts in that most favored region; and its name, if its not changed by (Jongress, will be Chattanooga. Did you read the artiole in Friday's 1 imes, copied from a .boston paper, head ed "Miss Lee," and signed "Charles J, Woodbury"? With some little founda tion In fact for his communication, Mr. Woodbury makes quite a sensational sto ry of the arrest of a Mrs. Durham in this city a few weeks ago. The author as much as tells the people of Boston that Mrs, Durham, a quadroon, is the daughter of the present post mistress of Richmond, who still rejoices in the appellation of "Miss," and who was a glorious loyalist during the war. Whether Buch is tho fact or whether "Mrs. Durham" has imposed on bis credulity for purposes of her own, it is impossible to say. iiut Mr. Wood bury'a letter is well written and will at tract much attention from those at the North who are disposed to look on ns as barbarians of the first water. A new weekly will probably be Btarted here in a short time. It will be radical in politics, J ust now the Times has ev erything its own way, but there is a man liest desire on the part of a good many to "stir up" its editor once in a while, in such a way as can only be done through the columns of an opposing paper. , , Our ex-City-Attorney tried to stir him up in another way a few days since, on Market Street, but the bullet missed its mark and stirred up an innocent Afrioan who hap pened to be passing, . And now let mo ask yon, in conclusion, why you do not send some of the surplus butter and eggs in your section to Chat tanooga.- ; it is next to impossible to get either here. It seems to me there would be money in it. ' Wake up John Renfro and Fayette Price and let tbem minister to our wants and make money for them selves.

I ..Ttfo. : ; ' Water " in ' whioh potatoes bavo been boiled kills lice on cattle " ' ' , OUR WASHINGTON LETTER, ; Washington, D. C. April 5, 1870. The latest piece of matrimonial gossip sod afloat here is the reported engagement and probably speedy marriage of General Ames, Senator from Mississippi, and Miss Blanche Butler, daughter of General But ler. The Grundy family are on the out vise, in consequeuce, as the affair, when in comes off, is expouted to produce quite a sensation in fashionable circles. Secretary Boutwell has directed Assis tant Treasurer Folger at New York, to sell two millions of gold and purchase two millions of bonds, on account of the Siuking Fund, the present month ; and, in addi tion thereto, to purchase two millions of bonds for the Speoial Fund, making in all a sale of two millions of gold, and a pur chase of four millions of bonds for the month. . , The IIou.- sub-comtnittoo on elections, in the contested case of Egleeton, Republi can, against Strader, Democrat, in the first District of Ohio, have decided that the latter should retain bis seat. The air has been filled with gossip for several days past of impending changes in the Cabiuet. The storv coes that owins to a want of harmony between the Presi dent and the Secretary of State in the Cu ban question, Mr. Fish will shortly retiro and that hU place will be filed by General cutler, it is stated also, that owin to the growing strength of Secretary Boutwell, he looms as a formidable candidate for the Presidency, which has weakenod the good relations heretofore existing between the hxecutive and himself, and that he will consequently withdraw from the Treasury Department with the view of placing him self in training for the Sonotorship now held by Mr. Wilson, and availing himself of such opportunity as may be presented in the campaign of 1872. , It is a moral impossibility to. seperate truth from falsehood in the tissue of ru mors now afloat, and if I proposed to gos sip about such political, slate-makings seeming facts as they now appear, would, in all probability, resolve themselves into a baseless fabric of a vision before this oould appear in print. It is emphatically denied by the President's mends that he is dissatisfied with his present ministers and with Secretary Boutwoll loast of all. A great many organizations in this city are now preparing for a public demonstra tion in honor of the final ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment. A general or der has been issued by General A. Grant, commanding the Boys in Blue for a torch. light procossion, to eolipse everything of the kind that has ever been witnessed in this city. It has been discovered that a scheme is on foot here to break the force of the Cu ban sympathy in Congress one of the means to that end being to make it appear that Cuban sympathy has been purchased with Cuban bonds. The affair is being investigated by Congress. . ' ; , Much curious comment is excited by the action of the Judiciary Committee of the House in prying into tho privute affairs of the National Safe Deposit Company of this city. Sccretaty Snyder denies that any inspection of the books or business of the Company was made or attempted to be made ; but the principle was pretty much the same, though they were only search ing after tho Cuban bonds, which they supposed one man controlled, who is active and foremost in advooating tho Cuban cause with Congress. The Dominician agents here feol mnoh encouraged at tho results of the late elec tions in San Domingo, whioh shows that the people of that Island have voted in the proportion of tbirtj to one in favor of an nexation. It ia to be noticed the opposi tion to the several schemes for acquisition of more territory ia by no means partisan in its character, for, particularly in the case of San Domingo. The Democrats are as heartily against it ai any of the Repub licans. .,,.! Hie Senate will probably take; no de. cided action in regard to the House Bill abolishing the franking privilege.
