Be this as it inny, however, the democratic (eottors. one and 'all, are indignant, and many ofthem haTC themselves very strong language. Jfr. Hemphi 11, ol South Carolina, who had choree of the bill on the doinocrutic side, being ;tho 'first democrat on the committee from wliiehit was reported, says: "The absence of men was simply an outrags upou the ik-iuocvutic party." All the other, democratic leaders express themselves likewise. JA3IE3 UUAY'S PROPHKTTC KEN. 3Ir.. James A. Gray, of Atlanta, spent today here.

Mr. Carlton mude a speech against tlio force "billon Tuesday night, which has attracted TOpch attention 'and favorable comment from the democrats. Sir. Carlton siiitl Owing to the difficulty members find 'in being the gravest proposition oE legisla.- in the American congress, lam Constrained to enormity is only exceeded by the dt-r termination uf its partisan 'promoters to force it through this, the popular of contrress, without One discussion and r The truth is, said Mr. Carlton, party ureau selieine.

In this you re mist.tkcn, ajs you will find out from the demo- r.ttic rciiresentation which will continue to oc- iipy scats in the American congress. THE LOIJGJ: 01110 Senators Are to Op- pose It. cnaiOND, Va., July of the est informed democratic leaders in Virginia are iinting upon the opposition to the Lodge elec- bill of such, republican senators as Plumb, of ,nsas; (.'amcron, of Pennsylvania, and Sherman, f Ohio. Tho assumption that these gentlemen vill earnestly antagonize this important partisan in which the people of the south .ire so nucli interested, is based wholly upon business principles. They are interested with Mahono and in immense tracts ol' mineral lands in Pat- ick and various other mountain counties of this tute, not counting extensive interests these gen- lemeji have in other southern enterprises. Through iLihone they have recently made large purchases if valuable coal, and mineral hinds in south- vestern Virginia, in the development of which imsideralile capital will have to be expended- It s believed that if actuated by no higher or motives, the senators will not do any- hing to all'cct the vital interests of a portion of he Country in which they havo risked so much >t' tliHir treasures. This is a view' some of the ablest democratic orators of Virginia take of this nutter. In opposition to it, so far as Mahoiie is concerned, it may bu stated that his two congressi- uen from this state, IJowdeu and AVaddill, both upported the Lodge bill. THEY THKKATENED THE POLICE.

The mob dispersed, but muddy re- assembled around a saloon to which the officers iad goiie.and three of the negroes were haranguing ;ho others to take revenge, when a squad- of po- icemen captured the speakers and broke up the ihrong.

He entered the tvater about seventy-five feet up the stream from the cantilever bridge, nnd was taken out of an eddy auove the Whirlpool Rapids inclined railway with a deep cut in the left knpe, and another in his left foot. His escape from death was entirely accidental. Hia own skill and strength had little ;o do with it, andj when taken out of tbe water he was so crippled aa to be perfectly helpless. He was out of sight a good part of his trip, and was several times supposed to have been dashed to death against the rocks. He asserts his intention to try again when his injuries heal.

Along the ne of parade in the business portion of the ity there was not a single house that was not rofitsely decorated. _ Governor Taylor, of Tennessee, and staff eaded the Tennessee militia. After the pa- ade-and review, General Gordon addressed iveral thousand people in front of the union onot. His sentiments were so patriotic and. oquent that the wildest enthusiasm pre. ailed. L Following is Governor Gordon's speech: My Comrailes I appear simply to thank you for iis call and for the privilege you have afforded ne to look into your faces once more, and had I he power to call blessings trom Heaven, its huicest gifts would be upon your heads. I ask aa last parting request, that vou prove as true to our plighted faith to the union in future aa you id to the stars and bars iu the days of war. Treat I knew what your response would be, and I ndertake to say for vou, and the future will 1'or- vcr prove tbe correctness of the prophecy, that hcnever tho honor, integrity, progress and the of this republic are :it stake, these men and heir children will be found on the side of that epublic.

Lookout noimtain and Missionary ridge are ablaze itli bright lights, and on the Tennessee river and Cameron hill there are monster pyrotech- nic displays. It is estimated that there were vis- tors in the city today, THEY ARK dBOWING OLD. The parade of the confederate veterans clearly indicated that it has been a long time since the close of the war. The men. are all ;ray haired and nearly all infirm. Their ap- jearance showed that they had seen active service and much of. it, many of them appear- ig HI their old, tattered gray jackets. General C. W. Heiskell, of Memphis, was one of the speakers at tbe tent. He said: We all rec 'gnize the fart that the late war was a gallant tight. Both sides were right. We, of ;he south, f ought for the constitution of our f a- ihers. The south was a loyal country. But we were wrong on the slavery qusstion. Tlie north was right, when it fought us on that score. There is not a son or daughter of the south to- day who would have slavery restored. [Applause.] While for foiir years we were deadly enemies, we are forevermore brothers ami fellow citizens, and jroud in tlie south of the glory of these American jtates, and we would tight as loyally for the nag of our country as any man who fought with Grant and Sherman.

Alien Echols dangerously, probably fatally, urt Joseph last night; Both men are negroes, and the Wow 7733 truck in the house of Ecliols, about a mile nd a half beyond Ponce de Leon springs. Echols is employed .on the farm of Str. W. 4.. Moore, and Lipseomb has been boarding vitb him for some time past. Lipscomh is employed in grading'oa the new oad leading through Ponce de Leon. Yesterday Mrs. Echols was in town all day, olebrating the Fourth. She returned homo ometimo after dark. Nobodywas there when arrived, together with one or two of her omale neighbors. Her husband had gone ofE iiought to was not expected to bo ack in a very short time. Soon after'JIis. Echols got off her hat, omb came in. Then, close on his heels, came Echols, wild ppeared in the door suddenly, without any warning1. Echols says he saw Lipseomb kiss his wifof ustr as he stepped in tho door. "When he saw said Echols, "ha turned and picked up a pistol that was laying; ut on top of the bureau- I told him to lay it own, aad jit the same moment grabbed a hair and struck him- on the head with, it, le fell down on the floor, aad then I .way." About 11 o'clock Ecliols walked into tha tation house, of his own accord and gave him- elf up. "I have killed a man for kissing rny he explained to Dr. Foute, "and I want to ;ive myself up like I was told to do." Echojs is a hugely built man, of strength. A blow by ils hand must have been a ;errific one. "When he camo into the station ;ouse he was greatly excited, was without hla 3oat or hat, and it was a good while after ha was put in a cell before he calmed down mough to tell his story. A message was sent to the city for Dre. jVestmoreland and Howell, and they went onfe o see the wounded man. When Schols left Lipseomb lying on lie door, he was lifeless. A greaj gash was cut across his head, and the escaping blood lad formed a large pool where he fell. He> ay there for some time without signs of lifoj rat before the nhysicians reached him, he had recovered consciousness and .was able to talk; a little.

Ecliols told ma ;o put the pistol down. I started to do so, and ;hen he hit me with the chair." Lipseomb ia pretty seriously hurt. He may tie irofli his but the physicians have good hopes of bis pulling through all right. Tho affair created great excitement in the neighborhood. Early this morning Lipseomb was brought to Dr. DanHowelFs ofiice in the city. He waa very much lower than he had been during tha night, and Dr. Howell said that the chances ot iiis recovery are extremely doubtful. The blow Eroin the chair caused concussion of the brain, and his death is likely to occurat any moment, A ROW AT THE GI-ASS WORKS. Tlie Glass Blowers and the Metropolitan Dummy Men Save Trouble. There was blood on the moon out by the glass works. An ugly feud has sprung up between the Mowers and the employes of the Metropolitan dummy line and the other "railroad men out there. Trouble between the glassmen and the railroad- men has been brewing for some time. Numerous small nghts between the twoyfactiona have resulted from it, anS threats of a geiieral sweeping from the face of the earth by one party or the ether have many times been made. There is a beer saloon'on half way ground be- veeu. tho glass works and the road aheds. A number quarrels have taken place there between glass blowers and railroaders, the more freely the flow- ing of the beer the more frequent and general disputes andjfights. It is always glassiuan against railro'adman and. vice versa. Invariably the men take sides, and the feeling between 'the two seta or classes has been ao wrought up that a row can be raised almost at 3tay time by the casting of a handker- chief. Last night there was an outbreak that at time bid fair to develop into a regular pitched battle. A riot was narrowly escaped. A crowd of glass blowers andar-ulroadmen gath.- ered in the half way saloon last night. In. tho coarse of a row which grew to such proportions that a squad of police was telegraphed for, John Allen, au East Tennessee hand was pretty badly gashed on the head with a slung shot, his fellow railroaders say. Allen as well as the others had been drinking freelv, and the fight started from the same cauea that began other intensely bitter feel-- ine between the two sets of men. The place where the fight occurred is outside oc the city limits, and no policemen were sent in re- sponse "to the call.i After Allen was hurt he was carried away by hia friends, whbse intention it was to get reinforce- ments and return to the f ray. But in the mean- time tilings cooled down, and at midnight tho email knots of glassmen and railroaders that had been gathered about the neighborhood were A fresh outbreat may occur, and if it bloodshed may result.________ THE LIGHTNXNG BOtT Killed the Babe, Bnt Spared the Child'a Blotlier.
