A Weak Argument
If ib,Nl.jwlw' too wriuun for divtreion,

turns l wbicl. Ue upolS'6 fwr lho Ku KluI
Klnne tid lb" dinnor"" for Ihe enfrinchieoment
.f N"cr--Ury Fletcher's "ex-rebels" leurt, in their
Huri t" ix.ituhl for tLe one mid to insist upon Hie
other. Ih-rc bms sample : There aro no Ku Klux
Kinne, kcopl in lho imaginations tf excitable and
timid pvreoii. The Ku Kluxer are only a low
Imardles 1hs, who want to thed their ourplug mag
nclism by little Diidnighidivcrtifement. The Ku
Klux Klan? are jusV a jiolitieal scheme of the naugh
ty Radical to extend their ieae of power and to
pt up the State Guard, so as to carry a given elec
tion and have the militia to keep tht-e Conserva
tives who are entitled by law to vote from casting
tliHir ballots.
Their doings are part of a grand political scheme
..I the ' x-relelt ' to induce a system of lerrorum
rtnuiring the militia, and thus entailing taxation
Mid cost upon the dtizrns, until tbey will be worried
inUr turning over the power into the hand of those
who eo unjuFtly demand it.
But the nrt fallacious of all argument concern
nig thia subject, i that the Ku Klux violence is
caused by the disfranchisement of the " ex-rebels,"
aud that all this would ees upon their leing re
etored to the ballot The question is a pertinent
on, how came they' to bo without the ballot ? The
Mitwer is at band. They deprived Ihemfelves of it
by their own crimes against the laws and the au
thority of the Government. They, then, bava no
'tie to blame for their disabilities but themselves.
They cannot claim it as a right, for they themselves
forfeited that claim. They ought not to ask it or
tpect it until their general course gives evidence
tlmt it is deserved, earned, by such conduct as in
spires the confidence that it can be safely, and there
fore wifely, bwtowed. These scarlet robed knights
ol the mask are not fools, however criminal they
may lie. Tbey know well that no sonsible person
would admit the justice of their claim that tbey
Miould be enfranchised to induce them to quit their
wild and wicked schemes, or that such enfranchise
ment would quiet them. But their political dieabiii
tuw are not the cause of their lawlessness and
U.nce ; for, in Arkansas, where all are enfranchised,
the Ku Klux are as bad as in Tennessee ; and Gov
Clayton, as is known, has bwn compellod to sum
mon bis militia and puninh thorn for past exooese:
mid citort a bond for their future go-jd behavior.
Disfranchisement, therefore, is not the caui-e of
lh Ku Klux troubles, and if it wero, that very fact
would be a sufficient reason against their investiture
with full rights of citi.enship, as our able corre-
Nindent, " Justice," shows in another column.

The following from thu Pre (Forney's) wijl ex
plain the condition of the disputed question between
our Government and that of Great Britain, as to
the Alabama depredations upon our commerce:
Some curiosity has been manifested as to how Mr.
Seward could send to the Senate tho treaty with
England on the subject of the Alabama claims the
very next day after its signing in London. The ex
planation is, that he did not send in the treaty it
self, but only the substance of it. The original
draft, or protocol, as it is called, which was signed
some lime ago, was in Mr. Seward's possession, and
as subsequent negotiations went on be was advised
of their result by telegraph, and made notes of
tbein. Consequently, when advisod of the comple
tion of the treaty, be bad only to write out a fair
copy of the amended proctocol, and ho nad, for ail
practical purposes, the final treaty. According to
tbe best authorities, the principal points of the doc
ument are these :
Article I. The two Governments agree to the set
tlement of all claims and differences which have
arisen since the convention of 18t3.
Art. 2 provides for a Commission of four persons,
each Government being entitled to two representa
tives; this Commission to agree upoi a plan of set
tlement. Art. 3 provides that a majority of the Commis
sion shall decide tbe questions involved.
Art. 4 provides for cases of disagreement of the
Commission. In suh an event the two Govern
ments shall choose an umpire. The I'resident of
tbe United Sttles shall act for tbe United States,
but the umpire elected shall not be qualified unless
confirmed by the Senate.
Art. 5 provides that in the event of the refusal of
tbe umpire to decide, the question shall be settled
by lot in presence of the Commission.
Art. 6 eicludes from tbe jurisdiction of tbe Com
misbion all cases arising from claims which have
been adjudicated by courts of admiralty.
Art. 7 provides that claimants shall have first
proved that tbey are British subjects; that they pre
served strict neutrality during the war, and did not
aid tbe South.
Art. 8. Tho sessions of tbe Commission aro to be
held in Washington.
The seventh article is one which all loyal citizens
will be glad to see. If faithfully executed, it will
cut off a host of bogus claims by blockade runners
who suffered from the vigilance of our navy.

Mr. Thornburg, of Grainger, deserves the thanks
of all true citizens for his effort to induce sobrioty
among our law-ioakors. A representative has no
right to disqualify himself by drunkenness for his
official duties. It is a clival and a fraud upon his
constituents for him to do so. As much a chc-at and
fraud as for a President or an United States Sena
tor to do the same. Tho following is the record
made of Mr. Tbornburg's recent movement in tho
lower llouso of the Genoral Assembly:
By Mr. Thornburg, of Grainger : A bill to re
strain intemperance in tbe General Assembly of the
State of Tennessee, making it tbe duty of the Spea
ker of either House, in the event of any member
who may be found intoxicated in the ball of either
House, to order the doorkeeper to take such intoxi
cated membor and confine him until he becomes so
bor. Passed first reading, and referred to tbe Com
mittee on Judiciary.
Good Sense.
We mean the views expressed below, by a promi
nent ex-rebel, concerning a proposed repeal of the
school law. Tbe article is from the Memphis Pont
of recent date :
We are permitted to make the following signifi
cant extract from a letter written by a prominent
ex-rebel. He says: " 1 hope the Legislature will
not do so foolish and ruinous a thing as to repeal or
destroy our school system. Somo alterations are
needed, but I do hope there ia firmness enough to
push it to a thorough tost. It certainly would dis
play bad generalship to sound a retreat just as the
enemy's lines had boon brokon, many prisoners ta
ken, and a flag of truce hoisted." This needs no
comment. '

A Militia Appointment.
01. Albert 8. Baylens, formerly of the Ninth
Kentucky Cavalry, was appointed on the tth inst.,
by Gov. Brownlow, as (aartermaster General In
lit State Militia.
Oar Industries.
The large and enthusiastic meeting at the Court
House, on Monday evening last, for the organiza
tion of an Industrial Association, has created a
livelier interest in the community than tho most
ssnguine had dared to hope for. The unanimity and
oarncstness of our citizens in the encouragement
and promotion of home industry are already
producing their results. ,
One gentleman of ample means has docided to
engage in the manufacture of wooden ware, spokes
and hubs for wagons, axo and pick handles, rakes,
seed drills, Ac.
Another is arranging to manufacture fire-brick.
A pottery manufactory is already in process of
construction.
A syrup refining and sugar manufactory (making
sugar from sorghum) will probably bo established
in Knoxviile during the coming summer.
The manufac- ire of agricultural implements is
now being discussed with that intense interest that
always results in action.
The manufacture of edge tools is not far off, and
shoemakine:, by machinery, will probably be wit
nessed in Knoxviile before next January.
Persons now here, who are commissioned to make
investigations for practical manufacturers, are now
writing back with enthusiastic confidence.
If our farmers will only raise sufficient broom
corn tbe coming summer, the importation of brooms
to East Tennessee will terminate the present year.
It was stated in tho meeting on Monday evening,
that the mowing machines, which are brought from
the North, afler paying fifty dollars profit to the
manufacturer and sixty dollars in Ireignl, are pur
chased by tbe farmers bore at three times their orig
inal coal. It was also slated that the common hand
hay rake, that retails at twenty-five conts at the
North, is brought here and sold in the country at
one dollar and twenty-five cents.
So long as we pay such profits ana such freights,
what wonder that we are so poor ? And so long as
we persist in sending all our money out of tho Stato,
to purchase article! at high prices, that we could ob
tain for one third tho money at home, we shall con
tinue to be poor.
The new Slates ol the eht have uiiilormiy re
mained poor and embarrassed in their finances, un
til they have learned to depend on home manufac
tures, "and then they havo grown in wealth with
astonishing rapidity. When people once resolve
that they will buy nothing abroad that can possibly
! purchased at home, they are on the high road to
prosperity. They are then masters of tbe Mlualion,
and foreign capital and labor flows to them as nat
urally as water tlows in its ihannel. Manufacturies
thon spring up as if by magic, and untold millions
are added to the treasury ol the Slate.
To those who do not think or investigate, mode
rate statement of facts seem extravagant. But
what at first seems extravagant, often falls far short
of reality.
For the consideration ol those wtw nave not yet
investigated the subject, I wilt make one moderate
statement:
There are now fiuo.eu men in Knoxviile, each one
ot whom tiHM the means and could easily start one
of the branches of manufacturing now being talked
of, but not yet established ; and ij they would do it,
ihry would tape and bring in to Knoxviile more thai
iwo milli'ifis of dollars annually.
W'e aro now waiting for strangers to come and do
for us what can easily bo done bv our own citizens.
If our own people will take hold in earnest, that
very effort will induce strangers to come and do
vastly more.
"God helps those who help themselves," is an
old and true saying. One of our first citizens told
us the otter evening at the Court House, that " we
bad been asleep "that we are now waking a lit
tle, but are still asleep." Even the symptoms of
waking are signs of great promise. But will not
onifc one who has thea bility sound the reveille that
shall wake us entirely ?

No Legislature ever deliberated on bo many im
portant questions as the present General Assembly
of Tennessee. The fire-tried Unionists of that body
aro always prompt and energetic they are men
from every station of life representing all the in
dustries of the State. East Tennessee i proud of
her members. While tbey are and have been a unit
on all questions of general importance to thia sec
tion, they are not so narrow-minded as to overlook
measures affecting tbe interests of the whole State.
There are some other who can claim to be East
Tcnnesseeans their conduct has been such as to
wrrant them in so doing. Foremost among these
we might mention the name of Gen. John B. Eodg
ers, ever jealous of tbe interests of his immediate
constituency, but ever alive to the interest! of the
whole State.
East Tennessee, heretofore neglected and unde
veloped, bas needed help from liberal minded men
from other sections of tbe State. Gen. Rodger bas
shown breadth enongh to comprehend the justice
and good policy of her claims. Tbe whole State
will, ere long, see the same thing. Develop East
Tennessee and tbe cry of high taxation will never
more be heard. We pledge these men who have
risen above sectional bias and looked to tbe true in
terest of the State, that East Tennessee will stand
by them in tbe future. If the additional represen
tatives from Tennessee are not admitted, we shall
be glad to sec Gen. Bodgers well remembered when
appointments are made. East Tennessee refers to
her vote.
Communicated.
What Does It all Mean T
Mr. Editor : During the past two months, the
people of Tennessee have been presented with what
I choose to style a class of " State papers," under
the heads, "Senator Fowler on the Franchise,"
with - Observations " by Ex-Gov. Foote ; Secre
tary Fletcher's Vindication of Himself;" " Speaker
Richard's Franchise Speech and Bill;" and "Ex
Gov. Brown's Message to tbe Ku-Klux." My des
ignation of these as " State papers " may bo open to
criticism. As to that I am careless. My inquiry
is, What do they all mean-? The " message " is by
far tbe most able and patriotic of the class, and
speaks well for tbe head and heart of its author ;
and, in one respect, constitutes a quiet key to all
the former. Gov. Brown discloses the fact that tbe
labors of those who have been seeking a restoration
of tbe franchise havo, in all instances, been defeated
by the hostile action of tbe Ku-Klux organization.
Now the question may be asked, bavo and do the
loyal people of tho State, and their representatives,
acted prudently and justly in refusing to restore the
franchise, whilst, and so long, as secret, masked and
armed demonstrations nre made through large dis
tricts of the State to tbe terror and loss of life of tbe
people ; and manifestly by those of that class who
would exercise controlling power by tbe restored
franchise ? According to the tenor of their expres
sions, Messrs. Fowler, Fletcher and Richards would
answer ATo to tbe above questions; whilst the good
sense, appreciation of Justice and of the proper force
to be given to the laws of self-protection on the part
of Gov. Brown, will incline him to answer Yes.
The game sought to be now played is a bold one.
An effort to compel the people to act under the force
and fear of violence; and leading men, of what is
called the Conservative party, declare that these
acts of masked violence will continue until the laws
repricing tho franchise are annulled and broken
down. If the authors of tho "Stato papers " re
ferred to are right in their conclusions, thoy lead to
this : that an element of society so vicious and bad
as to be beyond the control of law, will be harmless
if the restraints of law are removed ; and that those
who ignoro the forms oi law, and assume the right
to be a supreme law unto themselva", will, if you
open the door to them and invest them with full
power, make good conservators and administrators
of tbe law, as well as prime safe-guards of the pub
lic peace. Such argument will do well for those in
whose special ioterest it is made, but for no others.
It speaks not well for those placed on the watch
tower of public duty, but accords with the act of tbe
Shepherd who, to guard bis fold against the wolves,
breaks down his doors and invites them in, averring
tbat so great an act of kindness would surely make
the wolves friendly with and to tbe sheep.
Messrs. Fowler md Fletcher have heretofore both
admitted that the restrictions on the elective fran
chise were, at the time made, lawful, expedient and
strictly necossary. The latter gentleman, as late as
in November last, at the Republican jubilee in tbe
nail of the House of Representatives, compared our
franchise laws to tbe necessary earth-works and
block-houses of a besieged army, and declared very
plainly that the lime bad not come for tearing them
down. Most of his hearers thought he was then
right. What has since occurred to render those
block-houses useless? Is it because those against
whom they wero built as a necessary defense have
changed from mere skirmishers to hand-to-hand
fighters? Or does be simply mean to take back all
he said then and stick to and swear by what he says
nova ? The public would like to know. In the ab
sence of a better dictionary, tbe people will have to
let common sense make tho definition ; and upon
those special "State papers" the meaning will have
to bo, that as the times have only changed for tho
worse, the restricted, as a geueral thing, become
more hostile, vindictive and lawless, that the neces
sities ot the times have not changed, but tbat the
authors of those "papers" have. Why have they
changed ? For the good of the country or them
selves ? Do tbey propose to surrender to the opera
tives and advocates of Kukluxism ? or do they in
vite those hosts to surrender to them ? If the lat
ter, which party apologises for past errors ? or, in
all succeeding business transactions, which side will
be entitled to the honors of the chair and the r espon
sibilities of tho purse.
If a different stato of affairs existed there might
be more colorable ground for excuse to the authors
of those assumed rt publican papers; provided, even
and always then, that Mr. Fletcher would modify
the concluding paragraphs of bis, so as to bo not so
thoroughly in spirit, letter and proseology, like Col.
Colyar's numerous market-house and public-square
campaign speeches.
The difforent state of afi'airs above alluded to
would be this: Let the masked bands of lawloss
men cease to exist as a public terror in more than
half the counties of our State ; or, to say tho very
least, let tbe great body of that estimated " 80,000 "
disfranchised Tcnnesseeans not only speak out
against those highway organizations, as Ex-Gov.
Brown bas done, but let them rise up in their might,
put them down and suppress them, as they could do
if they would ; then a " State paper" especially for
the restoration of tbat law-abiding and law-enforcing
class might not only appear, but would receive
the favorabFe action of lh loyal people and their
representatives; but as it i?, it will be as it is. I am
glad tbat Mr. Flotcner bas not the legal authority
to fix the true definition of a " national Grant and
Colfax republican," as he seeks to do by making an
exhibition of his own personal political out-lines;
for it is manifest the definition, if it suited every
body else, would not be satisfactory to President
Grant at least on his Mississippi levee platform
for it will be rocollected that Gen. Grant recently
sa?J to the Louisianans, "You (yoursolves) must
remain under water until you show a disposition to
greet and recoive Northern capitalists with such
ieelings as to induce and pormit them to settle and
live among you." Thnt "levee" doctrine is about
right, but it is exceedingly anti Fletcher in its char
acter ; and thero is not much Fowler or Richards
about it. It is mostly Grant and Colfax.
But lot us approach our inquiry a little closer.
The object of the " papers " referred to, except Gov.
Brown's, is manifestly designed to hammer out or
knock off enough maierial from the Republican
party to make an organization with enough force to
give the color of dignity to a nomination for Gov
ernor at the August election, for the benefit and in
the interest of the rebel-democratic party. Let Re
publicans be on the lookout, and guard carefully
those preliminary flank movements.- The days of
vigilant care have not yet pasaed, but are now at
their noon-tide glow. " Jvrtick."

A municipal organization is as deficient without
a medical officer as tbat of a regiment without a
Surgeon, for the aid of science and experience is no
loss important in the police and hygien of a city
than in that of an army. Inhabitants of large cit
ies and their authorities understanding this, gener
ally select a physician for their Coroner, and ward
physicians are chosen by the board, whose duty it
is to attend to those who are sent to them by the
aldermen as too poor to pay for medicine or medi
cal services. Tbe medicine is furnished from a city
diepenenry at sacrificed prices. Physicians are paid
so much a visit, tbe rates being established. With
his monthly reports can be given the state of bi3
ward as to cleanliness, health and prevailing dis
eases. The subject ought to be suffciont o comment it
self to tbe authorities of Knoxviile at once, and it
is hoped that they will reconsider the subject at
their next meeting. A thousand or twelve hundred
dollars, if expended in this way, would aid greatly
in diminishing the number of invalid beggars, also
much unnecessary suffering would be avoided.

respondent, who knows as much as any

The official paper at Nashville thinks this
means that he will bo a candidate for Gov
ernor next summer, with tho purpose of
being a candidate for United States Senator
before the next Legislature, and that tho
surmise is probably correct. Possible ;
though we think not. Bat if he should bo
a candidate, of course he will bo elected.

of Generals Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, and
other friends, was secured to his widow and
orphans, has amounted to full eighteen
thousand dollars, all of which has inured
directly to theirjbenefit General Patrick

minor coildren (only two of thorn boys, and

We are sure that thousands who never mot
General Ilalpinc, with all who personally
know him, will hoar this with pleasure."
