The Late General Assembly.
After sitting about 3C0 days out of two years, the
Tennessee Legislature has adjourned. A a body,
the radical majority has been more bitterly and per
severingly ftbuscd than any General Assembly tint
ever convened in the State, and yet no Legislative
body ever did as much for the best interest of the
State. Two year ago, this body of men assembled
in the Capitol, and took charge of what little was
left of the Slate and her stolen records. The State
was prostrated, her archives gone South, her money
all squandered, and her credit utterly ruined. War
was still raging, court were no where held with
safety, an i justice was administered only within a
few fortified pot, protected by bayonets. County
governments were broken up, and pence officers
could do nothing. The schools and academies of the
State were closed, as they ltd been during the four
years of war and anarchy which previously reigned.
Our whole system of Railroads was in ruins, branch
roitds taken to patch such others at the military had
in possession. Guerrillas prowled without restraint
over tho whole State, and our farmers were liable
any night to loose their last horse, and their last
morsel of bread. In the midst of all this, a set of
traitors, strung ttlong the entire line of the S'jite,
falsely claiming to be Union men, under the pre
tense of ConservatitiH, were making war upon the
nevr Buto Government, and advising resistance to
the laws as unconstitutional, and having been enact-o-l
by ft bgus Leginlature. The radical majority,
by judicious legislation, despite the opposition of
the President and his minions, has placed the State
upon her feet again, and enabled the Treasury to
rawt all demands. In ft word, it has been the proud
privilege of this Legislature to restore the State to
prosperity in business and to ber ancient position in
the Federal Union.
Test our Strength.
If an obscure ward or district election is held in
Knox county, resulting in the election of self
styled Gtmervative, although less than thirty votes
may have been polled, it. is tru opted abroad a a
triumph over the Radiet.ls, and proof of tho weak
ness of the Governor at home. If the Kebel-Johnson
party wish to test the strong' h of the Radical
in Knox, and of the Governor in particular, let them
bring out ft man for Representative, one for Senator,
one for Congress, and another for Governor, and the
result will chow w ho is strong and who is weak.
And let them bring out their ttrofg men, of talents
and of aristocratic association!, and we will run our
up-start Radio. Abolitionists against them, and re
cord our vote as the strength of our party.

It was then announced to the Convention
that Hon. Samuel 2.1. Arnell, of Middle Ten
nessee, member of the 33th ' Congress from
tho Gth District, and author of the act dis
franchising the disloyal, was in the city.
Thereupon a motion was unanimously and
enthusiastically adopted to appoint a Com

tee, consisting of. Dr. L. M. 3Iynatt, Dr. E.
Goetz, and Xieut Maloney, waited upon the
honorable gentleman at the Bell House and
apprized him of the action'of the Conven
tion. , Awaiting his coming, the Chair,' by
request, addressed the meeting in an elo
quent and forcible speech speaking words
of wisdom, patriotism and counsel fearless
ly, as became the soldier of many a battle
field. Mr. ArneU's presence was then An
nounced, and greeted with hearty and con
tinuous applause. Taking the stand, he ex
pressed his gratification at meeting an au
dienco of East Tennessco loyalists, and
spoke in touching languago of the suffer
ings and sacrifices of the Unionists of this
division of the State referring, ' in terms
highly complimentary, to horsons who had
so nobly responded to their country's call
in her hour of danger, and to the patriot
ism, wisdom and heroism which had char
acterized her loyal representatives in the
Legislature, and paying a high tribute to
the eminent services of Gov. Brownlow,
whom the loyalists of the entire State de
light to honor, and are proud to acknowl
edge as their Chief Executive and standard
Mr. A. spoke most encouragingly of the
prospects of the Union party in Middle
Tennessee, and declared that, by a vigorous
and energetic prosocuti on of tho campaign,
there could be no doubt of the utter over
throw of tho Rebel-Conservative party. He
warnsd his hearers, however, that our op
ponents wero active and vigilant, and that
we ehould not lay the flattering unction to
our soul that success would perch upon
our standard on the first Thursday of Au
gust next, without united, harmoneous, per
sistent and energetic action.
The Committee upon Resolutions return
ing,' submitted the following report, which
was unanimously adopted : .
Whebias, The extension of the elective fran
chise to loyal citizens of color is an act just and
right in itself, and necessary to preserve Tennessee

Resvlved, That we fully endorse end commend
our Radical Legislature in defending and furthering

constancy and respect towards our friends.

Knox county be, and they are hereby tendered to

struction except upon the basis set forth by Congress. 1
That we endorse and approve the plan of recon

pose of nominating a candidate ta represent t he

Senate. That we respectfully request the loyal men

that the loyal men of Sevier and Knox unite in ft

to the loyal men of Sevier the propriety of holding
this Convention on the first Monday in May, at
Trundle's X Roads, Sovier county.
Resolved, That the President of this meeting be
requested to appoint delegates to represent Knox

. Resolved, That Dr. Lynville M. Mynatt is the
unanimous choice of the Radical Unionists of Knox

the Legislature, and that we pledge him our bearty
Gen. Cooper then offered tho following
resolution, which was unanimously adopted:
Rcsok-ed, That we hereby declare our preference
for Col. John B. Brownlow as Floater to represent
Knox and Sevier counties, aid put him forward as
the choice of the loyal men of Knox county. "We
cordially but most respectfully commend him to the
favorable consideration of the people of Sevier
county, hereby distinctly recognizing the propriety
and duty of mutual eonsultaJoo in the selection of
ft candidate for Fluater.
In response to the adoption of this reso
lution, Col. Brownlow arose, and ia a most
happy manner declined the proSered honor.
From the close attention which he com
manded throughout his entire speech, and
the frequent applause which interrupted
him, one could not doubt that his remarks
were highly appreciated. Indeed his hand

wonted demonstration, and did great credit
to tho Colonel and no little service to the
Dr. Mynatt, the newly nominated candi

Knox County Legislative Convention.
One of the largest and most enthusiastic county
meetings ever held in "Old Knox," was convened in
this city on Monday. The meeting of the Quarter
ly County Court brought many persons from every
district in the county, and greatly added to the vast
number whose interest in the Convention had caus
ed them to leave the work-shop and field.
! -One gratifying feature of the Convention was the
-large attendance of cur newly enfranchised colored
fellow-citizens.' A larger number of this class were
present at our Convention than we have ever seen
at a public meeting in this city. During the speech
of Gen. Cooper they declared unanimously they
would vote the Radical ticket.
; We have not space to give even a synopsis of the
telling speeches of Gen. Cooper, Mr.Maynard and
Mr. Arnell. The report of the meeting, as furnish
ed by the Secretaries, is elsewhere publishod.
The nomination of Dr. Mynatt was made with
absolute unanimity. This should be an assurance
to our friends throughout the State that Knox coun
ty will be represented by a Radical in the next Leg
islature. We say this because the nomination is
equivalent to an election, and the nominee is not
the man to betray bis principles and friends.
As will be seen by the proceedings, the Editor of
this paper was unanimously declared the choice
of this county for Floater from Knox and Sevier.
For reasons not necessary to be mentioned in this
connection, we positively declined the proffered
honor, even though Sevier county should ratify the
action of Knox in nominating us.
We cannot, however, retrain from expressing the
deep sense of gratitude we feel to tbo loyal people
of this county with whom we have lived since child
hood and to whom, we flatter ourself, we are well
known, for the honor they did us on Monday. To
be put in nomination for the Legislature by such a
man ft Gen. Jo. Cooper, and to be endorsed by such
an assemblage of patriots as was assembled here on
Monday is, indeed, an honor of which we feel we
are juotly proud.. - ! ; f : '
The Federal Resources.
The resounses of the United States Government,
greater than those of any other government, were
never fully appreciated until the rebellion developed
them. The people of the loyal States possess, to
start out upon, the Constitution and the Union, its
organization, its prestige, its legitimacy, its estab
lished international relations, it army, iU navy, its
flag, its name, its fame, its unbounded financial
credit in ft word, all those element which are of
themselves a tower of strength, and have been made
doubly strong and grand by our success in the great
est war of modern times.
rTbe loyal States possess the superior number and
population, while the men in the loyal States are,
to say the least of it, equal, man for man, of those
of the same race of the rebel . States, although, in
the beginning of the war, the blustering men of the
insurgent States boasted of the inferiority of their
opponents, and of their ability to whip them and
give them five to one I The result hut convinced
them of their error.
It turns out that the loyal States had greater ag
gregate wealth than the insurgent States, and that
wealth proved to bo more available. Indeed the
loyal States possess almost exclusively the maritine
wealth of the Union its ships, military and mer
cantile, its mariners, and the command of river and
sea, perfectly fortified with railroads and manufac
turing establishments, and all the advantages of at
tack which these things afford, including telegraphic
facilities at home, and by way of the great deep,
with the outside world.
The loyal Statos have the mechanics and the me
chanic arts, which, as the means of providing loco
motion and transportation, are great advantages, as
was proven in the late war. And beyond this, when
applied to the fabrication of cannon, shells, balls,
hand grinade, muskets, pistols, powder, tnd mili
tary equipments, are advantages which the late Con
federates will attest with their latest breath 1 .
There are no examples in modern times unless
in revolutionary Franco of a gTeat army of a half
ft million of men raised by voluntary enlistment,
organized, equipped, disciplined and converted into
efficient troops in so short a time, like the late suc
cessful force of the United States. The spectacle is
a sublime one, of which any of the greatest nations
of Europe might be justly proud. The Federal of
ficers, ia most respect superior to the officers of the
insurgent States, made their mark in the late war.

Rev. Dr. McAnnally, of St. Louis, Mo., is well
known in this country.- He wa formerly a citizen
of this State and a member of the Holston Confer
ence of the M. E. Church, South. ' lie certainly
ought to know East Tennesseeans well enough to
represeat them truthfully. Yet, as I conceive, he
has grossly slandered them.r The circumstances are
these : A few months since, he was here on a visit
or several wecksduxing which bo traveled from
Bristol to Chattanooga, stopping alo, at iatermedi
ate points. ' He waa in Knoxville some time. He
had, therefore, a good opportunity of observing mea
and things in thi State. He could not have been
ignorant of what had. transpired in East Tennessee
before, since, and during tho war. Yet, on return
ing to Missouri, he writes an account of his visit
'here, in which we Lave the following language :
L I am'amazed'and distressed at tho manifest want
of sterling, unflinching integrity on the part of
many people. They are such lovers of ease, so
much afraid of difficulties or persecutions, that, in
many instance they will compromise principle ana
do things which neither their consciences nor their
sens? of propriety approve, that they may, for the
time being, pass along more smoothly. And thic,
agreeably to the best information I can get, JfPr
cisely the condition of & large proportion indeed a
large majority some say nine-tenths of all thoce
native East Tennesseeans who have united with the
Northern Methodist Church. - - :
What will loyal Methodists of East Tennessee
think of lhatT -They certainly cannot be charged
with want of sterling,' unflinching integrity," as
perions loyal to God and their country,. ,The trouble
with them is, they were cot advocates and abetters
of secession ; they could not be dragooned " into it,
by flattery nor by fear. Church bonds, Conference
votes, ministerial example and influence were alike
impotent to swerve them from their noble, gloritua
"istsoeitt" They refused to adhere to the mad
policy of the M. E. Church, South, in driving, or in
attempting to drive the plowshare of rebellion and
destruction through the land.' This is the head and
front of their offending. ;. It hath, this extent, no
more." But is this a just occasion of reproach ?
Can this, truthfully, be catted " a want of integrity ?"
On the contrary, their conduct , herein, manifests
"sterling, unflinching," aye, glorious "intiqritt !"
for, a man who is true to God, cannot be false to his
country, and ft man who is false to his country can
not be true to God. , .
' Equally at fault is this reverend reviler, in as
signing the cause of what he denounces.' The loyal
Methodist of East Tennessee were not induced to
renounce and leave the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South, and join the loyal M. E. Church, by "love of
ease," nor because "afraid of difficulties and perse
cutions." They compromised no principles from
such, or from any motives. The men whom Dr. Mc
Annally thus traduces, traversed the Cumberland
mountains in tho dead of winter, in dark, stormy
nights, at peril of life, to avoid compelled service
in a robellion they abhorred and to enroll themselves
as defenders of the nation's honor and integrity.
And are such men " lovers of ease ?" " Afraid of
difficulties?" . "Compromisers?" Self-stultifiers,
tarnishing their honor by base and unworthy com
pliances ? Never ! ' '
" If the want of loyalty to the Southern Confede
racy, and of adherence to one of it earliest, most
active and constant supporters the Methodist
Episcopal Church, South as manifested by native
East Tennesseeans, amazes and distresses Dr. Mc
Annally, he will have abundance of amazement
and distress, for they are principled in their loath
ing of both j and neither " love of ease," nor "fear
of difficulties," can unsettle them from steadfastly
abiding in this, their present faith.'
It only remains to add, that Rev. Dr. McAnnal
ly was, for several years, editor of the St. Louis
Christian Advocate, an organ of the M. E. Church,
South ; that it was always intensely sectional ; that,
during the war, it wa a staunch supporter of trea
son and rebellion ; that, on this account it was sup
pressed and its editcr this same Dr. McAnnally,
was imprisoned, lying ia jail for some time for trea
sonable practices. ' Dr. McAnnally has shown "his
faith by his works." He has manifested "unflinch
ing integrity," "even unto bonds," but it was in
the wicked cause of rebellion. Equally unyielding
and unfaltering in their purpose, the loyal people
of East Tennessee have manifested " sterling, un
flinching integrity;" not in the unholy cause of
treason, but in the cause of intelligen t, God-approved,
patriotic, triumphant, successful loyalty. Yet is
not this venerable rebel & beautiful specimen of
consistency, to read loyal men a-lecture for not be
ing disloyal? . . That he should be " amazed", and
" distressed" at loyalty, is not strange. An acid
immersed in an alkili will effervesce. An animal
with hydrophobia will go into spasms at sight of
water. Treason cannot endure loyalty.

To all Concerned. ,
Several notices have appeared in thi paper with
ia the few week past having the appearance of
editorials, which the ostentible Editor did not see
until they appeared in print, and which he did not
approve, and would not have inserted. The last of
these notices was in regard to the late election of an
Attorney General in Judge Houk's Circuit. These
notices are usually worked into our columns through
those in the office who have not time to examine
them, and who are not aware of their bearing. In
the future this game will cease, and men of all
grades will be required to come up boldly and ask
the Editor' consent to the publication of articles,
which must come in the form of communications, and
be accompanied with responsible names.
All reading matter, both editorial or otherwise,
must enter the paper through J. B. Bkowklow,
the ostensible Editor, who holds himself responsi
ble for the same except the items furnished by the
Local Editor, who is a prudent and sensible man,
and whose articles need no corrections.
All Advertisements must go into the hands of T.
Hi.we, who regulates the charges, as he does in all
cases of Job Work, the employment and payment
of workmen. On our part, as Editor and Proprie
tors, we will asbere strictly to these statements,
and we shall require others to do the same.
Athens Conserratlre Sleeting Again.
In commenting on this meeting, we were made
to usa the following language in our last paper :
"The sentiment uttered in this treasonable con
clave are worthy of note, because they were heartily
applauded by every member of the so-called Con
Ia the above, in the manuscript, we used the word
nearly before the words 4tevery member of tho so
called Conservative party." We were delayed in
the pa icatios of our last issue by having to wait
:rer-l day for paper, oar stock having been ex
hausted dnring tho flood. In the hurry to get the
paper to press, the proof sheet wa not corrected.
There were some persons of the Conservative party
at thi lawless meeting who did not, as we are in
formed, applaud or endorse the treasonable proposi
tion to forcibly reeist the execution of the lawsrand
the vilo slander and charge that Gov. Brownlow
ftnd the RadicaV members of the Legislature had
stolen $600,000 of the School Fund, of which, as
every one knows, Conservative-Johnson-loving-Treasurcr-Slanford
wa ole custodian.
No respectable enemy of the Governor, or bis
party friends in the Legislature, has asserted that
h9 or hi Legislative friends are responsible for the

they do not believe iL- To such as applauded or en
dorsed these utterances of an irresponsible ruke,
yagabond, icoundrel and coward, did e (and do we
now) intend to apply the denunciation of " traitors,
outlaws, vagabond and scoundrel of the ConserTa

have since hypocritically professed to disapprove
them'.' Those who allege (with apparent sincerity)
that they did not approve them, but failed publ'uly
to disclaim thair endorsement of them, owe it to

this public disclaimer.

KnoxTllle as a Manufacturing Center.
I have spoken of Knoxville" aa a commercial cen
ter. I now propose to submit a few thoughts ,in
reference to it as a probable ma:".Hfacl:iririj center.
Let it be kept in mind that we have entered a new
era. Old thiegs have passed away. For forty years
the policy, and the folly as well, of the South was
to raise and sell cotton, and with the proceeds pur
chase her supplies from' the North and WesL In
other words, she discourngefi manufacturing aJ da-grading-
and enslaving in vsndency,- and devoted
herself rone to raising and wuing tbe raw mato.
rial. All were producers. So far this spirit
carried, that even a foreign vnarket was preferred to
a domestic one. There was no diversity or division
of labor. A fortunate few, the great li.nd and slave
proprietors, gre-y riuh, while the great body of the
population remained poor, or were foreod to emi
grate to the West. Constant streams of population,
tho bona, sinew and weaTlh of the country, moved
to the free States of the West. The latter grew
mighty, and reared great towns and citiea, and built
railroads and factories, school houses and churches,
while the South languished in her own exc'iusive-
ness. While assuming to be the most imlependeut
people in the land, they were in fact absolutely de
pendent on the North for everything except cotton,
rice, sugar and tobacco. , They raised cotton with
Northern plows, hoes and food, shipped it in North
ern vessels, and sold it in a Northern market, where
it was manufactured into prints, demestics, bagging,
&c. Then they went North and purchased these
articles for the use of the planter. Look at this
system for a moment. A bale of cotton, raised in
Mississippi, wa first sent to the commission me
chant in New Orleans, which, after being insured
was sent to New York for sale, where it was sold to
a manufacturer in Lowell, who converted it into do
mestic and then sent it back to hi agent in New
York, who sold it to the large jobber, and he to the
retail merchant from the South, who returned home
with it to sell it to the planter. . Finally, then, the
same cotton, in new form, after traveling from
Mississippi to Massachusetts and being taxed by
way of profits, in a Half dozen hands, arrives on
tbe same plantation where it was raised. ' By such
a system a few men might grow rich, but the coun
try was compelled to grow poor. There wa no
room for the tmaU farmer, the hope and stay of the
land; for without him, in predociinent numbers,
no State can be prosperous. His hands create
wealth. It ia as true now as when Goldsmith wrote,
" III fares the land, to hast'nin j ills a prey, .
Where wealth accumulates and men decay ;
For a bold peasantry, their country's pride,
When onoe destroyed ean nerer be supplied." '
Under that system South Carolina scarcely moved
for half a century. While under an opposite sys
tem the North marched to wealth and to empire,
the South marched to ignorance sad poverty. Fi
nally, maddened by the perceptible loss of power,
she made a bold and desperate effort for separate
political existence. To the Democratic party the
South ia to-day indebted for this fuse system of po
litical economy, and all the consequences resulting
from it. For many long years Henry Ciay, with
true love for his whole country, struggled to engraft
his great American system of protection nd labor
on the policy of the country, but the false theories
of Southern Democrats defeated all hi efforts. The
result was that while the North and West were
moving forward, the South sat still, hugging her
idols, repelling immigration, discouraging manufac
tures, and preparing her people for the great day of
fire and blood, which was to prove for her the great
day of desolation and of humiliation.
I have said we are entering on ft new era. I be
lieve the South will at last cast aside her folly. East
Tennessee, never much wedded to Southern theo
ries, and not at all now, will surely change her pol
icy. It would seem that nature designed her for. a
manufacturing: district. To name her minerals,
would be to repeat an old story familiar to every
one. To speak of her water power, would be to
close our eye to her bold mountain streams that
come leaping down into every valley. To '. dwell
upon her climate, would be to forget that it ia nearly
a mild and uniform a that of Iwily or Central
Mexico. Her central position too, is remarkable.
She stands on the confines of the cotton region, j
about equi-distant from the Atlantic coast and from
the Lakes, with a soil and climate capable of rais
ing many Southern and ' nearly all Northern pro
ducts. Being on the borders Of the great grass
growing and stock raising region, 'she is likewise ft
grass growing and stock raising region in a high
degree. With coal and iron, copper and Xinc, lead
and marble, wood and water, food and climate, and
with railroad running from Knoxville in every di
rection, as well as from other points, and with her
great climate and geographical central position,
what element is wanting for a system of manufac
tures on the grandest scale ?
But what is our present status in that respect?
With a few establishments at this place, and a few
at Chattanooga, and some others in different coun
ties in East Tennessee, all is told. A part even of
the iron that is forged in East Tennessee is shipped
six hundred miles to Cincinnati, thereto be convert
ed into plows, stovus, and engines, and tent back to
us. Even the very brooms with which we sweep,
the plows with which we plow, the axes to chop, the
chains to draw, the carriages, the engines, the tubs
and buckets, the furniture in our houses, in a word,
nearly every article we use or wear, cornea from a
distance. : Beneath our mountain sides lie the iron
and the coal, on it grow the oak, the pine, tbe cedar
and the ash, and down it rushes water power capa
ble of moving the heaviest machinery, and by it
glides the swift railroad car, and iu tbe valley near
by grow the tall grass, and wheat and corn, and
yonder frolic the fleecy sheep and the fat cattle, anc
above these smiles in golden light a genial sky from
year to year, yet with all these bountiful gifts w
are dependent on the North for all our manufac
tures. . Will not some one erect a factory for mak
ing brooms, and tubs, and buckets, and remove this
shame ? Will cot some one make arrangements to
manufacture first class agricultural implements?
Have we no enterprise, no skill, no capital, 'no
shame 1 How long will we adhere to a system which
has ruined the South? : More Asox.

Friendship for Colored 3Icn.
The self-styled Conservatives, of Tennessee, sceia
to think that the Radicals have acted in bad faith
towards the freedman, in that they have enfran
chised them, and did not, at their February Con
venlion, nominate one of them for Governor. They
tell us that Andersox, of Knoxville, Djert of Jack
son, or Parish, of Nashville, either is bettor qualifi
ed for Governor than the present incumbent. There
are talented and worthy colored men, and tho pres
ent Governor out of the way, the Radicals would
support them in preference to a Eebel-Jubnson-Contervative
with a white skin. Let this rebol
sympathizing party nominate on; of theso men at
their approaching Nashville Convention, aud thus
convince the colored men that ttoy want' one' of
their race for Governor. If they have no pale
faced Rebel-Democrat upon whom Ibey can harmo
nize, we can lend them a colored Radical for a can
didate. The three men we have name, would in
dignantly reject their nomination, but there are
others who would accept. '
Come, gentlemen, let us have a loyal man on Loth
ticket, irrespective of color. And as you desire to
be better friends of the colored man than tie Rad
ical, nominate him a your candidate. f .
Hatred of the Colored 3Ian.
The Rebel-Conservative . papers and politicians
show their hatred of the colored man on all occa
sions that they dare do so. They late t:m because
he is free, and is a voter, and becau th?y know
that he will not vote the rebel ticket. The Athens
Press, the Blizzard-Edwards organ, states, editori
ally, that "there is a negro in Philadelphia whose
feet measures twenty-nine inches. We think the
Radi. als ought to secure thern fo: a party platform."
The hope of this piper, in this malido'tf Cin ut
the colored voter, wns thit but k w of the race woui J
t-e alio to read tho slur. In tend of hoji.it of or.e
colored man, the Radicals of Tnne:.se n.pve to

clo on that siiUect in Friiav's issua. v,
informed in r.-gard to Lis Honor Judg Tesvpla be
ing'sent for to vishtha polls, to expand t'.e law.
The Judge has property ia East Knoxville, s.nd wa
there foe the purpoa of voting, and no otLer. We
have this from the Judge himself, and we cheerfully
make the correction.
The above we copy from the Contnercial of the
31st. You, were net misinformed with regard to
Judge Temple. Your knowledge of the rnan's
character taught you that he was not, as you lndi
ectly charged, wrangling and button-holing voters
in alittle ward Election. Since JudgeTemple has been
"on the bench,' he has never participated in a politi
cal meeting. ? And during the past five years he has
bad less to do with politics and talked politics less
than almost any lawyer in East Tennewce. 'As evi
dence of Chancellor Temple's ontire exemption from
what may be termed radical partixaEship, we men
tion that the Clerk and Master of his Court for this
county was, during the war, a friend of. tho South
ern Confederacy,' and now differs entirely with the
Judge in political opinion. At any" time Judge
Temple could remove him. ia Campbell county,
looking alone to' qualifications, Judg Temple ap
pointed a Cleric who' differs, with him" la poliUca.
The Judge has always been loyal man, but ha al
ways commanded the respect of all parties. - Hi
appointment as Chancellor was declared to be a good
selection by men of all parties, all having entire
confidence in his porsonal integrity, and believing
he would be entirely impartial as a judicial officer,
-Merely because Judge Temple voted, as the Com
mercial supposed, against its wishes,' did it obtrude
his name before the public, in an offensive manner,
that he might be blackguarded by 1 Copperhead
editors.. The unwarranted obtrusion cf the same
of "Judge Temple is in, keeping 1 with the pro
gramme of .the Johnson party, which, has been
for twelva months attempting to bcllt and
blackguard a certain claas of citizens to prevent
their "quietly, exercising the rights of citizens,
and i ; quietly . depositing the ballot. We defy
any man to point to a single instance in which' we
have, In an offensive manner, lugged into print the
name of a private citizen one net participating of
ficially in public meetings, and otherwise placing
himself in the category of a politician.
The Commercial has invariably been obtruding
the names of gentlemen in its columns solely because
they are of different political opinions with itaelf.
When they had a Johnson Conservative meeting
here in September last, the names of several Radi
cals were published as members of the different
committees of arrangements, reception, 4c. This
was done with the deliberate purpose to dragoon
these men into the rebel ranks. If they disclaimed
connection with that party they were to be abused
and their names and business published. As they
have done ia Memphis, "SmiU Pox" , was to be
written over the door of every man who was not a
Johnsonite. Now, if the Rebel-Conservative party
of Kaoxville will persist in the course wa have re
ferred to, we shall publish a Directory of tho other
party, and give the name of each and every one of
them. The correction," so-called, which we pub
lish above, is no atonement for the unauthorized ob
trusion of J udge Temple's natna before the public.
The dirty, lying rebel papers which copy the state
ment published conspicuously in the Commercial of
Friday, will not notice its so-called correction. From
this, however," Judge Temple will loose nothing,
provided ho does not value the esteem of trutors
and Copperheads above that of Union men. In
view of the unfairness to use no harsher term
which has characterized the CommerciaCs treatment
of Judge Templo, it was a condescension in that
gentleman to offer any explanation to the editor of
the Commercial. '. An act which we regret he should
nave a one-. .

Let us Continue Harmonious.
Thus far great harmony and general good feeling
have characterized the party movements of, the
Radical Republican Union party in Tennessee. Lot
us continue thus to harmonize, and. success will
crown our efforts. In our union of sentiment and
our concert of action is our strength. Let us do
nothing to disturb the harmony of the party. Let
every man lay aside sdf and look only to the good
of the country; let all labor to promote the Union
cause, and to defeat tbe wicked schemes of the reb
els, no matter ty what party names they may call
themselves. '.'The bid spirit of Southern rebellion still
liv0jnod seek to-deate tho Pod.ral Union. Let
the loyal men of the country band taemselves to
gether as brethren, and meet these traitors at every
point meet them in debate, meet them at the bal
lot box, and if need be, meet them in deadly con
flict. The Union must be preserved, and treason
put down, and traitors taught to behave themselves.
;Wi have lately thought we had evidences of im
provement in the Commercial editor. , We believed
he was endeavoring to act with more justness than
formerly. We are sorry this hope has been dissi
pated, as it has by the gross misrepresentation of
Judge Temple in its article referred tc elsewhere.
There is nothing else in that article which we con
sider illegitimate and contemptible in journalism.
For depositing his ballot in a Ward where he owned
property, the Commercial is as unwarranted ia as
sailing Judge Temple as we would be to thrust be
fore the public for a difference in opinion the name
of James H. Cowan, or any other citizen. ,

Tho Jackboa (Jliss.) Clarion U not at all
pleased with tho President on account of
his action on the reconstruction bill. It ex
presses no surprise at the passage of that
measure over tho veto, and then continues
as follows : ..
"When it is remembered thai it was in his
power to defeat the measure by retaining
tho bill until tho expiration of the Thirty
ninth ConrrTcs, and that to return it with his
cdo teas to insure its passage, the only con
clusion which wo can reach U that he had
deliberately resolved to acquiesce in it, with
a protest. And in this fact there is great
significance. Notwithstanding it overturns
tho whole policy o? bis administration-
conflicts with his olt-repcatcd views of the
rights of the Southern mates and tho legi
timate powers of Congress defeats the ful
filment of hi pledges to the authorities and
peoplo of thee States, - which have guided
them in their coarse with a view to the re"
coverycf their position as 'coequal mora
bcrs of the Union imposes new conditions
contrary to his - solemn assurancesnot
withstanding all this, we find him, at the
last moment, adopting a courso ia regard to
tho bill which he knew ; would inevitably
secure its immediate success.'' , ,-
; The inference which wo draw from hi
conduct is that ho ha. - accepted the condi
tions ot this measure,' despotic as no con
siders them, to avert others still more harsh
which he apprehends would bo dictated by
tho new Congress under the lead of its
Butlers, Stevenfccs, and Logana. In this
view his action is too full of meaniu to be
disregarded by the people cf the South. 5
