We trust that every loyal person in the
city will join heartily in tho celebration
of our gi'oat National Anniversary. Con
sidering tho strange and eventful period
through which this Slate has recently
passed, under rebel despotism, it will bo
fraught with far more interest than or
dinarily attaches to such celebrations.
Come out to tho celebration. Let your
houses stream with National Hags, and
let not disloyalty dare to whisper on
. our streets. Lot it be a day consecrated
to freedom ami American Nationality.
A correspondent wants to know what
has become of certain torpedoes which it
is said wero invented in this city last

Our correspondent asks if the inventor
will not prepare few for tho celebration

Yankee Ncliilal. -
We believe It is a generally conceded
fact, that the mobt obtrusive, impertinent,
insolent and malicious rebels in this
city are Yankee tneii and women. Male
: ami female adventurers, who were spew
ed out from an unappreciativo plaeu of
nativity a few yraj'S ago in the North,
and who, by luck or marriage, havo be
come the owners of a negro oi1 two, tramp
our streets from morning till night, and
talk through their noses about l.inrulu
ites and Abolitionists, and the divine
right of Ham, hkm and Japiut. Wo
met one of these creatures' recently, an
old acijuuintance, and could not suppress
hearty laugh at the ludicrous specta
cle of a Newfoundland codllslt trying to
pass itself off for a Mississippi alligator.
Wo have our eye on some of these nuis
ances these vilo blots on society, these
renegades from Ynnkepdoni and have
collected some choice facts relative to
their former history, which wo shall
soon give lo the public, unless these
wretches learn tho decency of silence.

Cries of the Tories.
This is a favorite phrase now with th c
tories among us the partisans of the
JevT. Pavis Confederacy in comment
ing on the acts of the Military Governor
of Tennessee, or on those of tho Presi
dent. Whatever they do to defend or
restore tho Government is tyranny. If
a press is stopped which is supported by
tory patronage and is controlled by tory
editors and publishers, and if secretly
and insidiously aiming thrusts at tho
Government, the tories exclaim: "What
astounding despotism 1" If tho Presi
dent orders the seizure and confinement
of a spy, the tories groan at this gross
violation of halni cnyut. If Gov
ernor Johnson, after waiting patiently
for more than three months, for men
who had ' fully. identified them
selves with tho tory cause during its
unholy ascedency, and who urged the ar
rest and exile or imprisonment of all
loyal persons, seeing that forbearance
has ceased to be a virtu?, and that len
iency to traitors is treason to the loyal,
arrests and confines such incendiaries as
J)rs. IIowf.i.I. and Elliott, rebels protest
nd exclaim against (he act of depot ism,
the exercise of one-man power. We
would marvel at the audacity or the short
memories of such persons, wore we not
well aware that in times of great commo
tion people forget to-morrow what they
are doing to-day. Justice requires, how
ever, that we shall remember that these
men in whoso behalf a false Sympathy
is sought to be aroused, wero among the
chief fomenlcrsof the cause of rebellion
and treason in Tennessee. They had in
fluence and basely did they'pervert it,
to overthrow the government. They
went hand in hand with tory presses,
which clamored like a pack of hungry
wolves for the blood of loyal citizens
When Judge HrvrnnrTS put II. Oj Sco
vel under a bond of $10,0(1(1, they said
it was eminently fit and proper, and
when the same Judge said it ought to be
increased to 20,000, they cried, Amen !
When the Nashville Gazette called tho
loyal men of Nashville a pack of "white-
livered scoundrels" they said tho epithet
was well applied. When tho Um'im and
American said that the "heads of the
Union men of Nashville were in the South
and their hearts wero in tho North, and
their necks should bo stretched to mako
up tho difference," they applauded the
clecaul humor of :he expression. , When
It. G. Payne telegraphed to the rebel com
mitleo to reply to the bold and true
hearted Etiikuh'OK "with cold steel and
bullets," if he ppoko for tho Union, these
devils incarnate shouted with delight.
When the Vigilance Committee determin
cd to examine a peaceable and loyal citi
zen to uee whether ho had any papers
concealed about him, and if tlvy shoiill
find untiring, to warn him that if ho
ventured to remain it would be at the peril
of his life, they wiuked knowingly at
each other and said that was the course to
pursue towards loyal men. They heard of
the imprisonment of hundreds of patriots
in loathsome dungeons in East Tennessee
without an expression of condolence with
the noble sufferers who approved them
selves worthy sons of the men who fought
under Wamunutok. Yes, they blasphe
mously lifted up their eyes to God in his
very sanctuary and prayed for bis bless
ing on tho heads of the swindlers,
thieves, plunderers, defaulters, perjurers,
forgers, traitors and murderers who were
at the head of tho " hell-horn and hell
bound Southern Confederacy." One of
thciu with tho impudcnco of the devil
asked the Almighty to w hiten the hills
of the South with the bones of tile armies
of tho Union. There was a vote taken
on Iho Kill of J uno Isfi, on tho ij nest ion
of the secession of the State, but only a
few daring men ventured to vote i'sr tho
Union. They did at lh rifle of thrift
hies. Aw atvful tyranny weighed down
the souls of Iho people like a monster of
lead. Men spoke in whispers even in
Jheir own dwellings. Spies and inform
crs (logged (he steps and scrutinized the
actions of all persons who were accused
of the sin of loyalty.
Such was Nashville under rebel rule,
and mich was the policy upheld mid
cuonlfiianced by Hindu men w ho within
the past, few days have been sent to Iho
Penitentiary. And dare their friends
talk of the tyranny of the Fede ral Gov

molested (he rights ol no one who has
not been associated w ith the public ili-t

transcended Ihelmunds of no authority.
He has indulged in none of that vindic

lose no time in proclaiming immediate and
universal emancipation, so that tho. pre
sent (rightful effusion of blood may cease,
liberty be established, and a permanent
reconciliation effected by the removal of
tho sole cause of theso divisions.
Tli at in his speech delivered at Spring
field, before his election to tho ollice of
Chief Magistrate, tho President expressly
declared, " A house divided agaiust itseif
oantiot stand. 1 believe this Government
cannot endure permanently half slave and
half free. I do not expect tho Union to be
dissolved I do not exK'et the house to
fall but 1 do expect it will cease to bo

all the other."
That this Society, therefore, urgently
unite with a wide spread and constantly
increasing sentiment in beseeching the
President, as the head of tho nation,
clothed with tho constitutional power in
such fcarlul emergency lo suppress the
rebellion effectually by the remove! of its
cause, not to allow the presentgoldeu op
portunity to pass witl.ut decreeing (lie
entire abolition of Slavery throughout the
land, ns a measure imperatively demand
ed by a due regard for the unity of tho
country, the aal'i ty and happim-n of the
people, the preservat ion of free insliu lions,
and by every consideration of justice,
mercy, and peace. , Otherwise, we have
fearful reason to apprehend that blood
will continue (o llovv, 'and fierce dissen

and fiery judgments to be poured out, un
til tho work of national di striiclion is
consummated beyond hope of recovery.
.The President said that, as he had not
been furnished w ith a copy of the memo
rial in advance, he could not be expected
to make any elended remarks. It was
a relief to be assured that the deputation
w ere not applicants for oilicv, for Lis chief
trouble was from that class of persons.
The next most troublesome subject was

would hnv done the work effectually.
Such a decree surely could not be more

l'roiecta f Mavery In Kenturk)-.
We have, on previous occasions, noticed
ihernpiddcclineoflhe slave power iuDcl-awsr.-',
Maryland, Missouri and Virginia.
Owing to tho conrse of the Confederate
Ivadical Abolition parly and their policy
of violence and negTO-stetiling and shoot
ing, the institution has become an intol
erable burden and nuisance in theso
States, and multitudes who, at the be
ginning of this rebellion, were ardent
pro-slavery men, have become eqially
ardent emancipationists. While a show
man is exhibiting bis elephant to thous
ands in his tent, the creature is valuable,
but he becomes a ruinous expense when
he is shut up in a stable to stand idle.
So it is with slaves. Instead of being a
source of profit they aro growing to be
a heavy burden. They arc a flock of
idle elephauts, and impoverish their own
ers more and more every day. Kentuck
ians begin to realize this fact sorely, and
hence we see tho Ijouisville Journal, an
ardent pro-slavery journal, make these
remarkable admissions. Tho ' Journal
makes a simple statement of facts. It
says : 1 ,
"Whilst slavery will inevitably sur
vive the present struggle, tho number of
slaves will certainly be very much di
minished, and the force of tho institution
itself will be sensibly impaired.- Parti
ally on this account, but chiefly from
the deplorable rcsnlts to which slavery
as an clement of our politics has led, the
political consequence of the institution,
whether in the form of abolition or of
disunion, will unquestionably perish in
tho struggle; bat the social and eco
nomic importance of the institution, with
tho abatements we have specified, will as
unquestionably remain, subject to the
wise solution of time and events. This
solution, as regards Kentucky, it is not,
we think, dillicult to foresee. The in
creased demand for slaves in the Gulf
States, consequent on the diminution
caused by tho present struggle, will so
increase the va(uo of slaves there, as
compared with their value here, that, by
the simple force of commercial laws,
slavery will lapse out of Kentucky into
the Gulf States, uulil, becoming hero at
length what it now is ia Delaware, a ju
dicious stroke of State legislation may
end the question. Thesolution will thus
bo accomplished by the silent operation
of natural laws, unforced by agitation
either internal or external.
"A like solution, of course, awaits the
question in our sister States of tho
liordcr, if they are but prudent enough
to leave tho question to such solution,
without seeking lo forestall ij sure but
Wo differ with the Journal on ono point
only in the above extract, and that is its
Statement that " the jkilUical cmstgnenot
of slavery will perish in this struggle. It
i dead, dead, dead already ; as dead as
if it had swallowed all tbe poisons of
Locusta, and had been chained in th
stilling air of the Grotto del Cane. There
live no magician or sorcerer, whose po
tent arts can break the everlasting chain
ail which death has bound its stiffened
limbs. There it lies with this inscription
on its brow; "Murdered by Secession
and Pebellion." Tho "social and econo
mic importance of tho institution," alono
survive to await "tho wise solution of
events," and with a little more obstinacy
on the part of the rebels, if, is not hard
to foresee how long it will live in any

only bo explained upon tho hypothesis
of a natural desire to cure tho evils of a

strong measures, luit we leel confident
that the proposition is as ill advised as it
will be unpopular wherever the somvo of
our troubles is understood. It is only
necessary to review the brief history of
tho management of our new government
to como to the conclusion (hat the fault
does not lie in tho system itself, but in
those at the head of it. Tho country was
unfortunate enough ': repose a blind con
fidence in a man, who, whatever might
have been his ability to conduct a' gov
ernment in timo of pence, has fihd to

During the reign of part? tactics, Mr.
I Davis was considered an acccmplished
uipiomausi, sianuing cautiously between
tho breakwaters nf Southern secession
and national pailyism. lie had been
counted among the leading Secessionists
in lMol, but failing in that instance to
receive the popular support, he, like many
others, concluded that tho people would
never sanction resistance, and secretly
determined in future to take special dare
of himself. Jle had, however, got the
credit of being a bold and intelligent ad
vocate of a causo which rapidly rose in
public estimation, until, to his surprise,
the people mauilested the spirit to go out
and set up for themselves.
To-this be added Ihe distinction til
having mmlo a gallant charge at Um na
Vista, having been a good Secretary of
War under Mr. Pierce, besides being
Chairman of Iho Military Commitle in
the United Slates Senate np to his re
cent departure from Washington, whore
his intercourse with Congressmen seem
ed to have impressed them with him, par
txcclUnce, us the man for a Southern Pres
ident. He was elected, and (hose of us
who had previously regarded him 1 atlier
a an adroit party diplomatist at Wash
ington, than as a great statesman, after
hearing bis eloquent speeches on the w ay
to the Capital, reviuwed our opinions and
helped to land him to the country as the
second Washington. .h '
Tho delusion soon became general.
Implicit confidenco was thus yielded up
to one man. Tbe Congress and Cabinet
was moulded to his will. Tho people
promptly responded to whatever calls
were made upon them for men and mon
ey, confidently relying upon the Presi
dent lo '.cniry tho w ar into the enemy's
country. When the seat of Government
was removed to llichmond, on the ex
treu e limits of the Confederacy, they
supposed that it was a part of a forward
movement to rescue Washington and
Maryland from I lie grasp of the North.
Put,' (hough mistaken in this, their con
fidence was not yet shaken. After
months of delay, lbs battle nf Manassas
was won by a scratch, and the Govt rn
tucnt and the peoplu were ho infatuated
with the result that they imagined the
War bad ended.
For eight months our army was kept
Standing on the banks of the Potomac,
as if for no other purpoie than to give
the U'rrificd Yankees an opportunity to
come over and propose terms of peace.
Ample time was given President Davis
to gloat over bis dream of a union, be
tween the Southern and Northwestern
Stales, to bo presided over by himself.
In the meantime Ihe Yankees were mak
