In our opinion the manifest object of this Act is to transfer the railroad debt to the shoulders of the people, and to Procure the dismissal of the su t iiL'ainst the railroads, which is now pending in the Supreme Court of the United Mates. 3rd. The State of Teiinosseo never owed a dollar of the railroad debt and oiicht not to pav it. The statute ex prcssly provided that the railroads were to pay the interest as it loll due and tne principal at maturity This was the innsoii wny the internal improvement system was so pi .pillar before the war At that tune no other doctrine was iieard Kut now we are told that the State ought to pay the debts ol solvent roads be cause they have turned over to the Compt roller about fil'teen million dollars in hoods ami coupons of insolvent com panies, which cost the solvent roads about three million dollars in L'ood I iiiohfV. 'I hen mi'rlit. he umno Pore, in tlii-i argiina iit if the Slate had ever been liable lor the debts of insolvent eompn fiic.-t. This is the turning point. If the Stale was not liable for the payment of the bonds of insolvent companies it was no benefit to the State for the solvent roads to get them uti and turn them over to the Comptroller. 'I he statute expressly declared that the bonds issued to railroad companies should con.vlitute liens upon the roads to which they were i.-.-iud, und that the roads should pav a dodge that has been worked in the Northern States until it was exposed and exploded, and now tho sharpers are getting in their work in some of the Southern States. J he trick was ex plained confidentially, by a party who was "in the ring, to work in this wise: lou see, said he, "this is the way it is done. A few of us, say hve or ten, organize a company, und constitute our selves the olliecrs und directors. Then before we lieirin to accept risks, each one of us hunts up two or three young men w hom we know are sure to be mar ried in a month or two, uud by paying them a small per cent of the proceeds of the policy, obtain their permission to place several thousand dollars marriage insurance ou them uud their intended wives. Wheu we have secured the amount of insurance wo desire to have in our own favor, we open our books and commence to take risks, placing our own risks in at once, and they ure sure to be among the first to marry. VI course the agreement is that there ure no assessments to be issued until one year has elapsed from the opening of the books, and then the assessments are to be issued and the claims to be paid in the order in which the insured got mar ried, and on each claim there is to be paid as many dollars as the assessment brings, not to exceed the face of the policy. Now, you see thut, our owu risks being among the first to marry, I hey are the ones that will be assessed first : and as very few will forfeit on the first assessment, our claims are sure lobe paid in full. lint after ours are paid, we will rush out the assessments bv the hundred ; this will cause nearly all to forfeit, and the claims to be paid will not realize ten cents on the dollar.

LJJaiuei Webster. The longest drouth that ever occurred iu America was in the summer of 1702. No rain fell from tho first of May to the first of September.

Hut what about the liability of the insolvent companies for the bonds issued to them' These bonds were a lien upon the insolvent roads, and noth ing could relievo the roads of the lieu but tho payment of the bonds. Have they ever been paid? No. What has become ot the insolvent roads f Ihey are in the hands of solvent companies flow (lul these solvent companies get them? They claim to have bought them from the State. Sut did the Suite sell eleven insolvent roads? No. It uerely sold her interest in them. What interest did she have? She had no pe cuniury interest except iu so far as she had paid interest for them on their bonds, uud this she had done to a large amount What did the State's interest bring? It brought SO.Ii'.IX.OOO iu illegal and greatly depreciated bonds and cou pons, which cost the solvent roads about SU'oO.OOU. After this sale took place how were the bidders of the bonds of insolvent roads 1 1 get interest upon their bonds f the statute expressly provided that the purchasers of the State's inter est were to lake the roads subject to the lien of these bonds. The sale ot the Sale's interest was not intended to re lieve the insolvent roads of any of their liabilities. Hut these roads have passed into the hands of solvent companies? Yes. When tho solvent companies bought the State's interest they took possccsion of the roads aud then bought up a large amount ol the bonds that were a lien upon them. These bonds have been turned over to the comptrol ler for cancellation, and the solvent com panies have made a magnificent specula tion. They got the Stale's interest in eleven insolvent roads for about $1,250, 000 in good money, and for about three million dollars more they got up about fil'teen million dollars iu bonds that were a lieu on these roads, while the roads theimelvcs are worth about twelve; mil lion dollars. It fully appears, therefore, that if the suit in the Supreme Court of the I uitcil Mates is decided in lavor of tho bondholders, the solvent railroad companies will have no valid claim against the Statu for the value of the bonds cancelled by the Comptroller, be cause they have possession of the roads that these bonds were a lien upon, and because the Slate never was under any obligation to pav the debts nf railroads. cither solvent or insolvent. (III. Another reason why wc protest against the passage ol the bill ih because the people are unable to bear the burden it places upon them. The balance of trade is always against au exclusively agricultural Slalj. Money Hows from agricultural into mnnul'ucturimr States us naturally asj.be waters of the Missis sippi How down into the gull. Ihe his tory of the world shows that there are only two ways by which an agricultural Stale can keep the amount ot currency it ought to have One is to make a lo cal currency, as irgtnia did in colonial times ; and the other is to encourage and develop manufactures, under the fostering inlliieiico of a protective tnrill, as franco did by tho advice ol Colbert. Tennessee is now an almost exclusively agricultural State and the balance ol trade is against her. Our cities, towns ami villages nro lilted with goods that were manufactured iu New England and old England. This trade system is a curse. It steadily decreases tlie quantity ot our currency and bene (its no one hut the trader, transporter nml money lender. Instead id having fifteen million dollars of currency, which is about tlio amount wo need, we have only about three or four million, aud to take eight ha nil red thousand era mil lion away from us every year to pay the intercut required by this Act will be ruinous. It will crush the agricultural class and prevent tho development of ninnulactures And even it it were the just debt of the State the people could not pay it. John K.

Now, all this can be done in less than two vears. and for live to ten men to band together without capital or risking a single cent, and clear 10,000 apiece in less than two years, is not so bad. Besides this, we will have all the mem bership fees to defray expenses and pay ourselves handsome salaries with." hot those who wish to be swindled out of their money, patronize this busi ness. It is a game between the olficers and outsiders, in which the former hold all the winning cards. A Rumsellor's Story. A man named Stacy, the owner of a splendid drinking saloon iu New York, signed tlie pledge lately and closed his house. Hearing that a party ot lads had formed themselves into a temper ance society, he went to them nnd gave them his experience as a rumsellcr. We repeat some of his recollections: " I sold liquor," said Mr. Stacy, "for eleven years long enough lor me to sec the beginning and end of its ellects. I have seen a man take his first glass of liquor in my place, and afterward fill the grave of a suicide. I huvo seen man after man, weulthy and educated, come into my saloon who cannot now buy his dinner. I can recall twenty customers worth from one hundred thousand to live hundred thousand dol lars who are now without money, place or friends." lie warned hoys against entering sa loons on any pretext He stated that he had seen many a young fellow, mem ber of a temperance society, come iu with a friend and wait while he drank "No, no," he would say, "I never touch it. Thanks all the same." Presently, rather than seem churlish, he would take a glass of cider or harmless lemon ade. "The lemonade was nothing," said the rumsellcr, "but I knew how it would end The only safety, boys, for any man, no matter bow strong his res olution, is outside the door ol the sa loon."
