tupid falsehood in a recent editorial in regard tu
ttov. Brown'ow .-
" Alter his release from rebel imprisonment, he
&ve his paper a strong rebel tone; he advocated in
in bis columns the election, in his district of Mr.
Watierson, a rebel, to the rebel Congress; and be

Could get up in Jttvor of the election of a rebel from
another district to tho rebel Congress, and a coupb
cf loading Union men had to labcr v,i.h him many
houTa to persuade him to withhold it from publi
cation.' "We do not propose to reply to this batch of un
mitigated falsehoods, but copy them that the peopb
of East Tennessee, who are fumiliar with the fact,
nay see what an old drunken, lying and corrupi
partisan editor is capable of saying. Gov. Brown -iow's
paper was closed out oa the 26th of October,
1661 he as imprisoned on the tJlb. of Decembei
following, and sent out of the country the 3d oi
Harch thereafter, and be published no pper until
after Burnside took the country. 2s o man by th
uame of Watterson ever ran for Congress in the
Knoxville District. W. G. Swan ran for the Hich
Uioud Congress, and II. ilaynard for the Washing
ton CoDgress. Gov. Brownlow supported ilaynarJ .
Was ever as many falsehoods set forth in the same
space? The '-leading Union man-' or ''any other
man'" who reports that he Lad to labor with Gov.
Brownlow to prevent Lis going into the rebellion is
There JS o character in humanity more utterly
disHgreeabla and pestiferous than the snarling fault
finders he who rails at Lis betters and will not be
atisiied. And in the Iloly Bible there is hardly a
uiore pitiful biography than that of Ishmaol bi.
hand agains. every hixn. and every man's Land
We are led to these reflections by reading the fol
lowing in the Messenger of Peace of this city :
'The Teunessee Senate ordered one thousand
copies of Brownlow s message to bo printed in ug
iiafl, and two thousand in German. Are Americans
in a minority in Tc.incrseo '!''
So far as wo know there is but vie German paper
in Tennessee, a journal recently started at Nash
ville. There are several thousand intelligent, indus
trious German citizens. Hundreds, perhaps thou
sands, of these are not conversant with the English
language. Does tho Andrew Johnson anti-Radical
ilestenger of Peace object to our adopted citizens
being informed of what is being done by the author
ities of the State and country ? However bitter his
animosity to tho3 authorities, he rhould not be op
poeed to the people having information on public
affairs. In East Tennessee there are ten nowspa
pers, and in the State n ty or sisty. In nearly an
cf ilee 'Brcwnlow'g Message" and other official
docan.ents ai a printed in English, and distributed
all over the State. It is therefore plain to every
fair'iiinded man that it was proper in the Legisla
ture to make provision for the dissemination of in
furmation among our German citizens. The John
e n papers attack the people of the North, the loyal
white natives cf the South, the Germans, and the
negroes, while their Kader, the President, has lately
betrajed and deceive! the Irish. Th-y seem t.
think that no class of men have rights in this coun
try but Northern dirt-etters and Copperheads, or
"Southern gentlemen" who advocate Bccession ana
AekesT of Col. Ashbt. This man Ashby, who
commanded rebel cavalry during the war, was pass
ing through bere on the train on Thursday last, un
der tome assumed name, and was arrested oa the
train by Sheriff Bear Jen, upon an indictment found
against him by tho Grand Jury of Kaux. He gave
bail and was released. The allowing of Ashby to
give bail and walk the streets unmolested, is credi
table to the Union men, and shoviS their high re
gard for law and order. No man had command of

ihe Bolters Judge Frazler decided
In faTor or the Rebels Another
War to be forced upon the Countrj
The President to llead the Re
bellion. Upon the assembling of the General Assembly,
Mr. Dunnaway, the immediate representative of
Edtnond Cooper, bolted with a view of reducing
the House below a quorum. He was followed by
Mr. Brown, one of the constituents of Mr.Leftwich,
and be was followed by Dr. Mrab1e,tbe instrument
ot D-rsey B. Thomas. The House appointed Cap-
iin Heydt, Superintendent of the Capitol, Sergeant-at-Arms,
with authority to select his deputies, to ar
rest the bolters and return them to the House, and
with the warrants of the Speaker they et out by
,wos. Williams, of Carter, i brought in, but
tiaraoies reoui inuuu recisieu wiu gux ana pis
tols and drove the two deputie back. Capt. Heydt
uade application to G;n. Thomas for a file of sol
lieri the General referred the case to Washington,
ind the President, who is on the side of the bolters,
ind in favor of breaking up the Legislature, as a
means of defeating the Constitutional Amendments,
instructed Gen. Thomas, through the War Depart
ment, not to interfere but to let the State Govern
ment and the politicians fight it out. This encour
ted the rebels and stimulated them to acta of vio
lence. Th-y sued out a writ of habeas corpus in the
cuse of Williams, and Judga Brieu and Gaut, of
ihe Johnson Club, of tba Executive Committee of
Davidson county, argued their cause before Judgo
Piazier, of the Criminal Court. The Judge being
weak man, and a political parti zn, under retel
influence, decided against the Legislature, and iu
iavor of the rebels. Among all truly loyal, men noth
ing but contempt is entertained for his decision,
nd for the man. Having no jurisdiction in the
case, and the law and precedents being againt him,
it was not expected that such a monstrous decision
would be given. But those who knew the man
those who knew that he was appointed to office by
Johnson that he was laboriug to have himself re
elected by the people in a rebel community and
hat he would never take a decided stand when the
rebellion came on, were prepared to hear bis mis
erable opinion delivered.
But to proceed with our account of this Rebel
Judicial farce, the sheriff, a rebel captain, by the or-.
Jercf the new-born rebel Judge, released Williams
'rom the custody in which be was held by the
House. And before day-light in the morning, the
-heriff, with a force of twenty five discharged rebel
-oldicrs broke into the StVe House, to seize and car
ry before the Judge, Cwptain Heydt, who roomed
ilone in the Capitol. Thi3 rebel mob of Frazier's
force the door and widow of the Federal court
room, breaking both, and with cocked revolvers,
carried off the Sergeant-at-Arms, whom the Judge
dned ttii dollars for obeying the orders of tho House,
md then released him. His action for outrage, corrup
inn f.nd high-Landed villainy, has no parallel in
history. The eagerness to get at Heydt, and to have
him resist, as an excuse for murdering him, grew
out of tho fact that he had served as a brave officer
ri the Federal army, and was several time3 wounded
in battle, fighting traitors. Captain Heydt had in
custody a second member of the House, Mr. Martin.
who had been a guerrilla chief in the Into war, and
he was relcised without any other process than that
served by the mob, in breaking down the window
and door. This is a part and parcel of Johnson's
policy to restore the rebels to power. It mean3 to
crush out the Union men of the South and restore
the Democratic traitors of the South to power and
place! It is i'ltendid by him anl his alvi-ers to
nuke TRE vson rejpec'.ubla, and trjutoxs honora
blp, while loyalty is to become disreputable, and
loyal man are disgraced and driven from the South.
To accomplish all this, and even more, there is on
'"ot a regular conspiracy, and the chief conspirator
s Andrew Johnson.
With liyal men in Tennessee, Johnson baa no
nore influence than Jeff. Davis. After all the let-
crs written Irom the inmates and bangers-on at the
White House, to members of the Tennessee Lfgi
I'tt ire. urging them not to accept the Constitutional
Amendment!:, they were triumphantly adopted hy a
vote in the Senate of fy'ttenXo six, nnd in the House
'y foriy-thrce to thirteen. Whilst in neither brwnch
of tho Tennessee Legislature can a resolution be
idopted endorsing Andrew Johnson or his policy,
unless it ba to declare him h traitor, nnd his poli
cy treason, both rank and damnable.
Why do we charge all this? Because he is turn
ing lojal men oui, of office by housands, to make
room for rebels t-nd traitors. Because he is appoint
ing Tennessee Legislative bolters to office, as a re
ward for their revolutionary and vilUinous conduct.
Because he betrayed the Breckenrige Democracy
!tf;er working with and for them, up to tho day on
which Lincoln was first elected. Because he be
trayed the loyal North after they hid elected him
to the office of Vice President. Because he has be
trayed the down-trodden and unoffending negro,try
mg again to sell him into bondage, after promising
to be his Afc-ies. Because he has betrayed the Fe
nians to the British Government, after selling them
sjuns and ammunition, and impressing their minds
with the belief that he was their friend. And last,
but not least, because he has never been true to any
ne but Andrew Johnson.
As an offset t- all this, it will be said, the writer
of this article ws a member of the Baltimore Con
vention, and put Mr. Johnson in nomination for the
Vice Presidency. This is true, and the writer takes
this ccsion publicly to acknowledge tbt it was
.he '"orsl act of his p-'otracted and somewhat e vent
ral life. Bui he Las to say in vindication of hioi
elf, that the Tennessee delegation had agrosd to
present the name of Mr. Johnson for the second
office, and the writer ws made the organ through
vhich to make known to the convention their wishes.
Better would it have been for the cause of Republi
can Liberty, if the Tennessee delegation, including
the writer, Lad all been in a rebel prison, South,
rather than in the Baltimore Convention, helping to
place Johnson in a position where he, when his
trie-id -should murder tho patrfot Lincoln, should
become President of these United States.
It is the settled purpose of the traitors at the
Xor;h, an 1 the rebels of the South, to involve this
country in another bloody war, and this they aim to
do during they neit two years, under the lead of
Andrew Johnson. An attempt to force Southern
traitors into their scats in Congress with bayonets,
wsll be made the occasion for the outbreak. Let the
Despot now at the head of the Government attempt
thing of this kind if he dare. A million of gal
lant Union nan will 'at once appear in the District
f Columbia, surrounding both the Capitol and the
Vhite House, dltposin of the haids of leadiiig trai
tor after the most approved style of the age, in
a Inch the King of England lost his bead. If anoth
er war shall be forced upon the country, the loyal
nasses, who constitute an overwhelming majority
f the people of -his great nation intend it shall ba
oo child's piny. They will, as thy ought to do,
make the entire Southern Confederacy, as God found
Lhe-earth when he commenced the work of creation,
without form and void." They will not, and
uglit not, leuve a reoel fence-r-til, out-house, or
I we. ling i n the eleven seceded Slates. And as for
the rebel population, let them be exterminated.
And when the war is wound up, which should ba
-I one rapidly, and with swilt destruction -iet the
lands be re-surveyed ani sold out to p ly th expen
ds of the war, mid settled only by a people who
will respect the Stars and Stripes.

the constitution adopted by them for' their government and

are the principle Article and Sections in the Const itutii n
adopted by the Association on the 3d of Anenst, 14, and
which it is insisted they had the right to adopt, and when
adopted are obligatory upon its members, that the ci mplatn
ant being a member having volnntarily beranie a snbscnler
thereto, is bound by the Constitution and By-Laws of the .
ciation. It is a well settled principle of 'law that when
a corporation is duly created, th law tacitly annex
es to it the power of making by-law or private statutes for ica
government and support. A nifrl A A raes. on coronation,
18-1, but the by-laws of a corporation most not te incon
sistent with it charter for this instrument creates it au
artificial being, imparts to it its power designates its object
and usually prescribes its mode of ope ration it is in shirt, the
fundamental law of the corporation , and its terms and spirit
as a constitution to the petty legislation of the l.!v acting by
and nnder it. Hence all by-laws in contravention of it are
void. Angel A Ames on corporations, paco I'd. The pf.wer
delegated in the charter of this Association which sv the
Constitution and By-Laws shall have the force and effect cf
legal enactment upon its members is of no greater force than
the incidental powers usually ariven to corporations in their
charters. It is further provided in the charter of defendants
that the constitution and by-laws shall not conflict with the
laws of tha land. These principles being reeoenixod as the
law governing corporations in the adoption nf their constitu
tion and by-laws, for their government, is the. constitution
consistent with their charter ? Did the Legislator" intend to
invest thiB association with such rights and power b are at
tempted to be exercised in the constitution ? To ascertain this
we must look to the charter, for it hi this that eives life te. th
artificial being, imparts to it Its powers, and designates its ob
jects. The language of the charter is, "An association which
shall be a mutual benefit and stock company havinx fjr It
object to assist members thereof to become their own land
lords." There can be no donbt of the intention of the Legie
lature was for the laudable object of aiding the poor in provi
ding for themselves comfortabli homes, such being the mani
fest intention of the Legislature the constitution and by-law
must not oe inconsistent with that intention, oth-rwi-e ih'-y
are merely void.
How far does the con&tutntinn adopi-d by this --ociatioi:
conform to the spirit and intention of the chnrter ? fun it be
inferred by the most liberal construction of the constitution
adopted by this Association, the object and purpose was to aid
working men in procuring houses? The rnles nnd regulation
show how persons may becrme stockholders. Tbe snm of one

CIATION, et al.
This suit is brought by the complainants against the defen
dants, a body politic and corporate, in the city of Nashville,
organized under tbe provisions of an aet passed by the General
Assembly of the State of Tennessee, on the 4th of February,
1854. The object and purpose, as expressed in the act of in
corporation, was to form a mutual benefit and stock company,
to enable the working men in the city of Sashville to become
their own landlords ; all the powers incident to corporations
Bj the 2d secsion of tbe act the power was jiven the mem
ber of the corporation to adopt such constitution, by-laws
and regulations for its government, and to choose such officers
and agents for the transaction of their business, and such
constitution, rule and regulations should have the force and
effect of legal enactments upon its members r provided that
such constitution, rules and regulations should not conflict
' with the law of the land.
The bill alleges that by the art ot" inoorporation the Asso
ciation was a mutual benefit and stock company, having for
its object to assist tho members thereof to become their own
landlords or owners of such real estate as they might need,
and to carry out this object said Association was authorized
to loan money at a rate not exceeding six per cent, per annum,
on mortgage or bv deed of trust, on real e tare, said Asso
ciation was organized en thc 2d of August, 1.S1, and adopted
a constitution and by-laws for it government. Thr-compiain-ant
became the subscriber for twenty shares of tock in said
company, and as snch paid into the treasury thereof SiO per
month or one dollar per share per month, and he continued
to pav the same frem the 2d of August, 154, to the 31st of
December, when he borrowed wr bought of said Associa
tion a certain sum of moneyr under tbe rule ind regulations
of said Association, as set forth in article 5th, as adopted by
the Association or company.
The complainant being" the owLor of twenty shares, they
were supposed to be worth f4,'X, when the Association would
wind up, and it wg. to wind up when said Association had a
snfficient capital to make each ?hare worth which was
calculated would be in about seven years from its commence
The complainant was allowed to bid ou Hie inu of S1.000,
which be did, and bought the same at 37 per cent, discount,
or a it is termed by them "the premium off,"' and he did re
ceive on tho Slat of December. ldi, the sum of ti,.W, and
from that time he had been compelled to pay said Association
the sum of per month, instead of t-0 a previously. Be
fore receiving the said j2,XS) be executed on said 31st Decern
ber,l&5o, a mortgage to the Building Association to secure tbe
repayment of the said S4.00O. He furthermore executed to
the said Association" hi bond. In tbe final snm of ?8iOO, con
ditioned for the payment of the said gum of H.UfOby monthly
iastallinsnts'of and conveyed by assignment to said As
sociation a certificate of itock of the i) shares to secure the
payment of 4,000. By the provision of tbe deed, should he
fail to pay tho said sum of (14 per month for the period of
three months, theji the Treasurer of the said Association,
should advertUe and sell the bond aa Trustee, without the
equity of redemption, at public saie, to tbe highest bidder,
of this Association and their operation a defined in their
Constitution; is it not for the aim and purpose of loaning
money at usnry, and an attempt to evae the laws thereof?
Can it be anything more than a borrowing or lending of
money, stript of its complications, it 1 simily an ordliiary
transaction of loaning of money at usnry. The complainant
in this case borrosvs of the aeeociation S-,5"0. exerutet bit'
bond for (4,000, payablo at au indefinite) ttni-. when the asso
ciation shall wind up, gives a mortgage r,r ns land, condition
ed to pay 540 a month by way of inter' 'f, or Rhich amount,
to the same thing, for the u-e of . fh, a---rition In
geniously guarded, and a s it is but a :-i- e to avoid the laws
of usury, well has; Lord Coke said to tli"-'- that lend money ;
my circa is, that neither directly or itidirect'y, Ly rt or cun
ning invention, they take, about six in the ban Ired, for they
seek by slight to creep oat of the- statutes iil d-reive them
selves and repent in the end Coke upon Lvt 4 v. The case jn
21 Ga. R., p 7i has been referred to as authority to; sustain
the validity of this assertion. Upon an examination of the
cae. it will be found that the Legislature had granted to the
corporation tbe right to change the interest. It appear ths
association had been incorporated under the law pectl;ar to
the State where the power had been given th- conrts to grant
charters, after organization and the adoptiou of a constitution
by-laws similar to those now under cond . -ration, they ob
tained a charter from the legislature embodying their consti
tution and by-laws, thereby the legislature recigniaed th:
right of charging interest. o snch right bfina given by tne
legislature in this charter, it is an authctitj against tfcsleg&j
ity of th acts of this association.
The case of I'), Mary. B. p.3y, in a case similar in principle
to the one under consideration, under the statute of that
State the Court h.-ld the transaction of the association cot
Usurious bnt fixed a period in which the rights cf th parties
should be determined, gave interest on the turn secured and
rebutcd the interest for two years, and gave a decree for the.
value of the Stock at that time. In two cases that came be
fore tba courts of Pennsylvania in in, Pa. R. p. 2, the court
held that any voluntary money association cannot char2 th -ir
member any more than stranger with usnri.u interest
tbat the transaction of money of tbe aiJciation are to be
treated as a loan, and that no more can be recovered than the
amonnt actually advanced wuh interest. The same principal
came before tbat Court again reported in Pa. R. pjg 46a
in which oneof the members sued the Association ti recover
back the usurious inter, st paid. The Court said the money
was paid under the constraint ef a formal, thouzh illegal Con
traet, that cont.act itself wai attained by oppression by ta
king advantage of the nect-s.ities of th? borrower, and of' con
sequence the usurious interc-j paid under it. We are aware
that tue English courts have sustained the legalties of these in
stitutions ; but upon an examination of tho authorities, it will
be foond that they were created by an act of Parliament in
