Ine vast powers couHircu unon vou. so
vitall- affecting ourselves and our posterity
we feel to be a sufficient warrant for this
liberty on our part. -
Our statistics show that in Hit spring of
IHli, about 10. (100 of the voters or leunes
see made up their minds to adhere to the
flag of their country in spite of the tornado
of treason that swept the State and carried
t into the vortex of rebellion. They con-
tilu'ied Ies than one-third of the voting
population of the State, and far less of its
wealth and political influence. Surrounded
on all sides by rebel population; suffering
very conceivable outrage in person and
property: hanged on the gallows : shot by
an infuriate soldiery ; cast into many pri-soin-;
mercilessly conscripted , and hunted
like wild-beasts and murdered in our places
of . neealiuent ; our numbers have been
reduced but the survivors of us have kept
the vows made upon the altar ol' patriotism
live years ago. .Moiv than twenty-five
thousand of our numbers leaving their
homes and families to be pillaged and
ahusod--traveling through mountains or
i telegraphic orders from the President, and
, the aid of the military, a partial execution,
only, of the laws wan obtained. So defec
I tive was the execution of the law, by the
officers to whom it was intrusted, that the
i Governor was constrained to doclare the
' August election totally void in twenty-nine
: counties of the State. An attempt will be
j made at the present session to pass an amen
ded suffrage law, but it is doubtful whether
'any effectual .disfranchisement can pass,
and still more doubtful whether, if passed,
I it can be executed, even witn tnc presence
of the military; certainly, such a law can
not be executed if the supervising power of
the General Government should be discon
tinued. In short, your memorialists an
ticipate that, at the first general election,
the entire civil and judicial power of the
State must pass into the hands of those who
hare so long oppressed them and wade
actual war upon them. The judicial elec
tion, which is the most important of all
must soon occur.'
By a careful consideration of the passions,
prejudices and designs of those lately in re
bellion, a correct idea of the course they will
pursue when once more installed into power
may be arrived at. Your memorialists aro
not driven to consult tourisU nor correspon
dents for information. They arc all citizens
of the State, some of them arc natives, and
several of them from official position are in
daily intercourse or communication with all
parts of the State, and with citizens of all
parties and classes. They claim to speak
not from heresay or report, but as ici.tp($st$
adnussabie in court.
The predominant feeling of those lately
in rebellion is that of deep seated hatred,
amounting in many cases to a spirit of re
venge toward the white Unionists of the
State, and a haughty contempt for the negro
whom they cannot tolerate as a freeman.
lhe hatred for the white loyalist is intensi
fied by the accusation that he deserted the
South in her extremity, and is therefore a
traitor, and by the efforts to set up a govern
ment of the minority. The spirit of re
venge is called forth by the attempt to dis
franchise them, and by the retaliatory acts
of the returned Union soldiers for wrongs
dyne them during the Avar. The negro is
the Mordccai who constantly reminds them
of their defeat, and of what they call "
just but lout cause,'' and the sight of him, in
the enjoyment of freedom, is a constant
source of irritation.
The tourist would not be apt to detect the
true state ol the Southern temper. Even
the resident observer has to look for it be
neath the surface of insincere protestations
of loyalty. True, the traveler or visitor
might observe a large number of daily reb
el newspapers well sustained while a single
loyal paper is sustained with difficulty; he
might discover that the rebel merchant or
lawyer is full of business and growing rich
while the loyalists either fails or is driven to
pander or dissimulate. And he ma' find
that the rebel chaplain preaches to overflow
ing houses, while the loyal minister is in
truth a missionary in an unfriendly country.
But he will hardly go into the social cir
cle to learn that the Union man is not ad
mitted into S'fiety or into private families;
to find that hatred of the ' Yankees, " ami
contempt for the Government, aro inculca
ted by rebel ministers and teachers; nor will
ho visit the township election to learn that
the bushwhacker and guerrilla can defeat
the most respectable Union man ibr consta
ble or Justice of the Peace; or to the courts.
to learn that the despised ''Lincolnite" fails
to get justice at the hands of the rebel jury,
and that the putting ol a negro on trial is
equivalent to his conviction and sentence to
the maximum penalty of the law. Yet these
and many other manifestations betray to the
resident observer the malignant temper of
the majority of the people.
V party exists in the State which is every
day becoming more and more compact and
powerful, which sympathizes with the men
and principles of the rebellion. It com
mands every agency to operate upon public
opinion. It has five well sustained and ably
edited daily papers in Memphis, four in
Nashville, one in Knoxville, and a weekly
in each of the important villages. Their
pardoned, but talented and still popular
leaders arc with them ; hundreds of rebel
ministers, who glory in having led offinthc
rebellion, and who have been throughout
the war the bloodiest minded men in the
South, are still in the confidence of their
people. All theso appliances, acting in har
mony, mould public sentiments as thej
please. and command a party of over two
thirds of the white men of tho State. Free
from restrictions upon suffrage, they will
probably cast ninety thousand votes in the
It is a s.ad delusion and a dangerous mis
take to suppose that this hatred of loyalty,
contempt for the negro, and alienation from
tho Government, are confined to the politi
cians, or leaders, as they are termed, and
that the common people have been all the
time loyal. It is certainly true that a por
tion of the Southern people went into tho
rebellion reluctantly, and that a few were actually-
forced into it, but it is equally true
that nine-tenths of those who went in reluc
tantly came out the bitterest of rebels.
The process of firing the Southern heart, and
of educating the Southern mind for treason,
had been progressing for many years and
had reached all classes. Long before the
war, the common laborer had learned to
curse the Yankees and Abolitionists, and to
talk about negro equality and his rights in
the Territories. Filled with murderous hate,
they have lbught four years against their
country. They have denounced, and heard
it denounced with every breath. They have
suffered cold, hunger and wounds in an ef
fort to destroy it. They have slain its de
fenders, and seen their comrades fall in the
same cause. The laws of human nature for
bid the idea that they lovo their country.
Indeed, it may well be doubted whetherjthe
capacity for patriotism is not extinguished
in many of them. Your memoralists regret
to say that yet the loyalists of East Ten
nessee, brave and noble as they are, have
not kept pace with the spirit of the nation
in extending civil rights to the negro, and
consequently there exists a want of harmo
ny among ourselves, but they do not doubt
that that patriotic but rural people will
soon take a position worthy their fame.
But in any event, all legislation looking to
the elevation of the freedmen in a moral,
civil, or political point of view, must come
from Congress and not from the State Leg
islature, it may bo that the present body
may pass some favorable laws, probably
they will, but it is easy to see that they will
be swept away by the" next General Assem
bly. Supposing the supervising power of the
General Government withdrawn from Ten
nessee, and assuming that, to some extent at
had by acts of lea$t' tlie rasion prejudice, aud resent
its, were permit- nts f the majority of the people will be
s by night, and hiding in thickets
ly day to evade a pursuing and murderous
iieiiy, escaped to the Federal linos, and
without bounty or other inducements, en
rolled themselves as Union soldiers. They
have returned to their homes from a gallant
and bloody service, to find, in many in
stances, their bouses in ashes, their property
gone and their families abused, insulted
and outraged. And it must be added, that
in many instances these victorious heroes
of the national cause are not permitted to
remain at their homes in peace, or, if per
mitted, they are crippled in business and
politically and socially out-lawed.
The Us'j)s of the great secession majority
of Tennessee may have been changed by
the events of the war. and so may have
been their opinions of their own strength
and of the strength of the Government, but
unkss your memorialists greatly misunder
stand them, their sentiments, sympathies
and passions remain unchanged. They
welcome peace because they are disabled
from making war; they submit because
they can no longer resist ; they accept re
sults they cannot reject, and profess loyalty
because they have a halter around their
necks. They recxjuize the abolition of
tdavcry because they see it before them as
a fact, but they say it was accomplished by
p-oss violations of the Constitution that
the negro is free only in fact, but not in law
or ol right
Less than a year ago the Provisional
Governor, representing the military power
of the President, and recognizing the right
ol the loyal people to -govern the State, set
on ibot a civil government, founded upon
the basis of the loyal population his
tavoi ite policy. The plan of a popular con
cntion and a submission to a popular vote
of the loyal people was adopted, and the
former Constitution and laws were restored
without the institution of slavery. Whether
we regard it as our former State Govern
ment restored, or as a new Government
given to us by the power of the nation is
immaterial, as it has been compelled at
very step to lean upon the strong arm of
the national authority for support, the
action of the convention was submitted to
the ou of the loyal people and by means
of the strong will of the Military Governor
and a rigid test oath, and because the elec
tion .was not recognized by the disloyal, it
was nearly unauimously adopted, securing
over I'O.ooii votes, many of the Union men
being in the rebel lines at the time.
Under the G overnmeut thus adopted, and
by means of the same test oath, a Governor
and Legislature w ere elected, by a general
ticket, on thc".d of March last." The legis
lature assembled in April, and proceeded to
inaugurate the Governor elect, and to elect
State officers, to establish ;l revenue, to
provide for the election of members to Con-:t:--s.
and to legislate in general matters.

power to limit the elective franchise.
So far, the legislation on this subject has
been unsatisfactory taid ineffectual. Indeed
mt-ny of the members arc utterly unequal
to the task, and yielding to the influence,
and dreading the power of numbers, shrink
from its performance. A suffrage law was
pased at the spring bession, the result of
compromise, and doubtful in its terms, easily
evaded and practically defective. By means
of repeated proclamation by the Governor,

tration which will prevail. It may be safe
Firtt. That so ar as possible, ia Legislation and
the bestowal of patronage, and the management of
all public affair, the late rebels will be the prefer
red class, and that all the acts of the rebel State
government, including the removal and destruction
of the State banks ana St&te Treasury, the disarm
ing and conscripting the people and the impress
ment of their property, and all the acts of rebel of
ficers, soldiers, and guerrillas, will be legalized.
Those who Lata been robbed, wounded, and impris
oned, will go unredressed, while those who Lave in-
LBY GOODS, dc.
Cicted those injuries will be justified in law as they
now are in public sentiments.
Second. As ia evn now the case in many locali
ties, services rendered and wounds received in the
Confederate cause will be passports to preferment,
while to have taken sides with the cause of the Union
will be equivalent to a judgtnent of infamy, forever
consigning tbc offender to obscurity and disgrace.
Third. If the Legislature does not vote thanks
and medals to Southern heroes, and ssite with other
Southern States to pay the Confederate debt, it will
be from foar or policy, and not from want of sym
pathy or desir.
Fourth. As far as possible, restrictions will be
thrown around the negro, and his elevation in the
scale of being discountenanced, if not actually pro-!
hibited; he will be excluded from the courts, from
common schools and probably from all means of ed
ucation from busiaess and privileged occupation-,
and perhaps from the acquisition of property.
Such, we apprehend, will bo some of tho results
of ell knovn laws of the public mind, and it re- j
quires but little speculation to anticipate still far
ther and more ulterior results. It is very juestior.- ,
able whether East Tennessee will submit to a rebel
government. Her people will never tamely succumb
to those who have pursued them like bloodhounds ,
for four years. If she does not resist by force she j
will refuse her revenues, and scorn to send her Eep- ;
resentatives to take scats in a Legislature composed
of rebel officers and guerrilla leaders Union men
will feel that tMy have lost and the rebels won ;
and that their martyrs havo fallen in vain. Even t
now, in many localities, they are crushed by the :
power of numbers and actually afraid l ?peak lik' i
Loyal emigrants will turn aside to more congen
ial parts, and the South will be left to herself t-
resume her former rato of progress. ,
The negroes will be forced to seek an asylum in
other lands, or perhaps they will become a declining
race, relapse into barbarism, and disappear from the '
face of the earth, an event confidently predicted, ami '
in fact hoped for by secessionists.
Your memorialists do not presume to point out
the means of averting the direful results they have i
attempted to foreshadow. They simply ask protec- !
tion. They pry that the Government will not fer- j t ,v ,t(
sake them by withdrawing its direct agency in our
affairs, thereby delivering them to their tormentors. :
