SATURDAY, MARCH 22, 1879.
There is something touchingly sub

Our State taxes this year will be
lighter than they were last. The lejvies
this year will aggregate for all purposes
on the poll 97 cents, on property 324
cents, as against 114 on poll and 38 on
property for the last two years.
After all the work of the political
economists; after all the plans which
have been devised by the States, coun
ties and municipal organizations, the
city of Charlotte is the first to find a
solution of the tramp problem. .Fine

Legislature will adjourn
on the 31st
inst., and still no provision has been
made for the compromise or, payment
of the State debt. The papers intimate
that there has been some degree of
crookedness in manipulation of Ten

The Cameron-Oliver Case. A
sweet mess is this trial of ex-Senator
Simon Cameron for trifling with the
affections of the Widow Oliver. The
trial is now in progress in AVashington,
and if there is any difference between
it and the Beecher-Tilton trial, the odds
are in favor of the latter. The widow's
testimony against Simon is just about
as obscene as anything that the strongest-stomached
newspaper has ever made
up its mind to print.
A Proposed New State. AVe see
it stated in the newspapers "that it is
proposed to form the State of '3ast
Tennessee' but of thirty counties east
of the Cumberland Mountains, in Ten

be borrowed from Kentucky and four
from North Carolina and two from
North Carolina could and would with
great sincerity say of such of her west

this new State, "Let the wayward sisters
go in peace." AVe could spare them
yea, verily, we could.
The Tilden Movement Booming
The recent sudden and exciting
changes in certain of the State officers
in New York city are claimed to be the
work of Mr. Tilden, and one-account
says that "this coup d'etat, coupled with
the success of Randall at AVashington,
fills the air with predictions of Tilden's
nomination in 1880." Further, it is said
that New York politicians on all sides
declare that, by the middle of next
month, Tilden will be in control of
Tammany Hall itself, and therefore
master of the whole Democratic party
of the State.
The South and the Presidency.
The Savannah News does nottegard Mr
Tilden as the strongest candidate the
Democracy could put forward for the
presidency, but says, if he is nominated,
"the South will accord him once more
an undivided support." Which is all
very true, the South having seen that
her only salvation is in the supremacy
of Democratic principles. The thing
said of Mr. Tilden might with perfect
truth be said of any other true Demo
crat: that if nominated he will com
mand the undivided support of this sec

CITIES WITH OVEB ; 20,000 ISHiBITillTS.
Commenting upon the Federal super
visor and marshal law, the New York
World has been at the pains to' prepare
a table showing the number of cities in
the United States which have a popula
tion in excess of 20,000. The number is
smaller than one would suppose. The
immediate purpose of this table is to
show that the supervisor and marshal
law bears more heavily upon the North
than upon the South, since these officers
cannot be appointed to control" elections
elsewhere than in places of 20,000 in
habitants and upwards. As a matter
of interest we print this table:

A conference of the representatives
of the German shipping trade was held
at Itostock recently. It was uniyer-

Curing a Panic In New Orleans.
New Orleans, March 20 To stop a
growing panic following the late sus
pension of the Southern Bank of New
Orleans, the Mechanics' and Traders'
Bank and two savings banks, all the
other banks, thirteen in number, com
posing the Clearing House Association,
have agreed to make certification of
checks drawn against them on the ba
sis of business between themselves and
with depositors. Collections for dis
tant customers, however, will be re
mitted for as heretofore in currency
checks on New York. In effect, this
action only involves local interests here
and has checked the panic, the pretext
for which will be entirely removed in
a day or two, when currency arrives,
which is already ordered from 2s ew
The banks held this morning
$2,200,000 in legal tender bank
and $300,000 sight exchange on
New York, exclusive of their port-folios,
with which to meet about ten mil
lions due depositors. Most of the banks
to-day received more currency from
depositors than they paid out.

St. Louis, March 20 News of the
suspension of the banks at New Or

somewhat depressed owing to a belief
that monetary affairs at New Orleans
and adjacent towns, which do their
business through the New Orleans
banks, would be at least temporarily
disturbed. The general business of this
city and of the banks here will not be
effected to any appreciable extent.

London, March 21. The Pall Mall
Gazette says: "It would be useless to
remain silent longer , respecting the
uneasy feeling that exists in the city.
The names of institutions of high
standing have been made free with in
a manner to alarm those who easily
lose their heads. AVe do not mean to
deny that there may be grounds for
some uneasiness. Trade generally is
notoriously depressed ; but we would

any longer disregarded, with what

public mind a scare ean be got up.

Richmond Va, March 21 In the
Senate to-day Senator-Massey, of Albe
marle, rose to a question of privilege
and proceeded to read a paper severely
reflecting on Senator C. T. Smith, of
Nelson, for publishing a speech which
reflected on Massey. The language of
the latter was to the effect that the
speech alluded to for unretinement, in
delicacy, coarseness, misrepresentations,
defamation and vindictiveness, sur
passed anything he had even heard in
the halls of the Legislature. Proceed
ing with similar severe language he
was several times called to order.
Smith, during Massey's remarks, de
nounced the Tatter as a liar, scoundrel
and dog. A scene ensued, several pro
positions to reprimand the offending
Senators and requiring apologies being
made, but after the debate the matter
was referred to the committee on privi
leges and elections to report what ac
tion the Senate should take.
The House to-day decided to take the
vote Monday at 3 p. m. on the passage
of the Senate bill providing for the set
