Bad State of Affairs in Tennessee.
Whon wo read statemonts liko tho following,
from tho Knoxville correspondence of tho Now
Jfork Times, wo havo reason to congratulate our?
selves on tho happiness of our pooplo in their free?
dom from intestino feuds, and tho respoct cvory
whoro in our borders paid to tho majesty of tho law:
Whon tho armies of the Union docidod tho sur- I
render of tho rebols at Appomattox and Raleigh, <
there began a system of proscription and wrong in <
East Tennessee unworthy of the causo and tho <
victors in our groat strifo for froodom and right, i
Those who had been wronged and drivon from f
their homos, returned to timUwmfhMiKTrltt ,
against those who bad enforced thom. Their tami- i
lieB had been scattered, their home made desolate i
aud their hearts ombittcred with multiplied wrongs, .
and they directed thoir whole force and wrath i
against those who had thus outraged them. Tho <
proud and strong, who nded whon the rebels wero 1
in the ascendancy, wore at length drivon from thoir I
homes and hunted through tho mountains. Tho
caves and fastnesses they had searched for Union f
fugitives wore too woll known to afford thom re- j
fugo or shelter. Tho violonco ot public opinion 1
drovo them into other States, amid those who had '
like sympathies and foelings. Their land3 and l
homos, or what tho desolation of war left of them, !
wore tho spoils to which tho returned loyalists I
directed their homoless families. Tho courts of '
justice and tho laws of the land, to which tho rebel i
rulers appoalod with passion and violonco to help i
them in thoir unholy persecutions, again witnoss- i
ed more violent and impassioned struggles, and 1
justice becamo a mockery, and tho temples of jus- 1
tice mero arenas for factious contentions. Jiulgos i
and juries wero swept into tho currant; tho clamor <
of traitor and tho pfoa of loyalty hushed the voico i
of reason and of law, and the scales of justico '
weighed an uneven balance. 1
Tho most unprovoked murders, tho most apparent '
outragos, and tho greatest violence passed unro
dressud and unnoticed; or, if noticed at all, wore i
justified under the most excusable pretexts. Juries i
wore cmpannellod and charged, the laws wero road :
and counsel heard; but the voico of passion spoke '
louder than tho voice of the law, and for the timo . :
the lips of justice woro mute. Suits wero brought ;
for damages and testimony roadily conj .rod, by '
which lands and tenements were divested out of :
the fugitive rebels and vestod in tho rcturnod ?
Unionists. Somo verdicts wero justly recovered, :
and some of the guilt * woro made to indemnify tho :
injured; but many unjust and oppressive judg?
ments were obtai'nod, and undor tho forms of
tho law many fugitives wero robbed of their all. :
A few Judges becamo parties to tho violonco of '
clients, and tho laws were construed to suit the
wants of each particular caso, and those who
would not lend their talents and iniluonco to
further such suits wero prescribed by political tost
oaths. Somo who administered justice gathered
?.bout them hirelings and tools, and talent and
prof ssional sldll were subsurvient to the cry of
the impassioned mnssos. Tho juries, who should
havo stood up liko walls of s lone to broast thc
wild storm and koop puro and unstained tho
rocords of justice, raised thoir hands to high
Hoaven, and solemnly swearing well and faithfully !
to try tho issues, pandered to tho public tastes,
and the roll of dishonest iurors was fearfully mul?
tiplied. Tho officers of tho Court summonod men
oi true political faith, and tho jurors empanuelled
recalled their personal grievances, and tho cry of
thoir wrongs silenced the voico of reason and
eased their conscience. Judges wore dopondont
upon the appointing power for tho tenure of thoir
omeo, and the nocoBsities and discipline of tho
party was tho codo of thoir laws.
If wo look from the Judiciary to tho Church, we
find something of the same intolerance and want
of Christian charity. The groat body of the peo
plo are connoctod with tho Methodist Church, or
rather tho great body of church pooplo aro con?
nected with that denomination. They aro dividod
into tho Methodist Church North, and the Metho?
dist Church South. On both sidos aro arrayed sec?
tarian prejudices with partisan political intoler?
ance, which makes tho element so dangorous to
our stato of Society. Theso different organiza?
tions are now litigating for thoir church property,
and thoir several organs resound with the
clash of bitter crimination. Ministers of tho
gospol, honoatly entertaining difforent po?
litical sentiments, are belaboring each othor
with the tools and slang belonging to ward poli?
ticians and district demagogues. Ministers, hun?
gering for notoriety, and some for political sym?
pathy, imagine persecutions and proscriptions,
and pandor to partisan passion, by interpreting
overy unfriendly look and unsocial act of brainless,
fooliuh women or wojik-ni incletl men UH proscrip?
tion for opinion's sake, and they have rushed into
print and recounted their wrongs. Such religious
foutlfi have kept bunting tho fires of political
sti'ife, and they must, in all time to como, have
moro or less influenco in this direction; for, judg?
ing from present indications, tho compromiso be
twoeii these organizations will never be cllbctcd.

THE IRISH PRESS ON FEJSIANISM,
Tho following synopsis of opinioiiB of tho Iriah
press on tho present crisis in Ireland we copy from
the New York Tribune, which journal, however, it
should bo borne lu mind, is not friendly to tho Fe?
nian movomont: ,
Tho excitement in England, nt tho prospoct of
nu Irish revolution and the ferocity ot tho proas,
liavo produced a rtault in Ireland of a different
character from v.'iat, doubtless, was expected.
Irish journals which have reviled and persistently
scouted FoniauisM arid ignored its lc tdors, arc
compelled to look iW a cause equal to the produc?
tion of such an uproar. Thc professedly national
press of course beholds in the situation a vindica?
tion of its preaching and prophecies, while oven
tho pro-Eiigliali^Jrish papors aro shocked into
pxut??u*rmirragamflt thc savage, unthinking wild
joss that possosatF, their brother loyalists in
Tho loading Iriah journals aro all forcible in thoir
treatment orthe topio,-however various tho grada
;ions of fityle. Ii may be taken for granted, how
jver, that the boldest ip leas bold than it would be,
md that tho fates of Tho United Irishman, Na?
tion, Iriah Tribune, and ofchor outspoken journals,
in 1848, and tho moro recent homily preached by
;he seizure and axtinction of Tho Irian Pooplo, a's
??eil as tho severe treatment of the conductors of
;he lattor, now imprisoned in England, combino in
restraining a completo expression of the popular
side, and a modification of the remonstrances
3manating from other quarters. St!U, a brief re?
ference to thom is indispensable as illustrating
jertnin phases of thc Irish orisiB.
The Dublin Nation does not sympathize with the
Fen:an movement. Fearing to contemplate the
chances of a struggla as against its countrymen,
it still thinks the Central Organizor desperate
mough to face tho ri?ks ooolly "with a subtile in?
tellect and undaunted heart." It deplores what
seems to it a Fenian fatuity in doponding on re
aourcoB known only to themselves, but comes out
jpenly and admits that, whatever fate may befall
the project, the Fenians have already exhibited in
atrong relief certain facts whioh have won the at?
tention of tho world, and "from which England
would do well to taM a, lesson." "Thoy havo
proved," says The Nation, "to a demonstration
that tho old spirit of the Irish people, thoir hatred
jf foreign nile, their kSvi of freedom, thoir devo?
tion to tho idea of national indepondonco, oxist in
unimpaired vigor, and tiat Enghnd ia to-day aa
Far from holding sway over their Iioarts as sho waa
hundreds of years ago.'' Upon the enduring basis
Df tho detestation of Britith rule by tho Irish raco
tho Fonian loaders built up thoir organization."
This anti-Fonian journal also admits that tho
measure of support givon to tho leaders in Ireland
is "earnest, unswerving, and almost unquoa Hon?
ing." In a subsequent article tho same journal is
strongly inconsed at tho idea of being "stampod i
rat," and grapples with bio London Times in a stylo <
?vln'ch, if not effective, a suggestive of a means ,
ivhich might bo. It reminds tho Thundoror that, '
is tho British army ia npl wholly composed of En- 1
?lishnien, there might bo iomo danger in oven at- }
empting tho stamping' out procoss. "Irish sol- ;
hors might not seo ahyi'fun' in the hanging of j
hoir fathors. or brothers, pr fellow-townsmon, and ,
night not at all relish tfc? work of flogging their J
li^L?1'"1 rii1'^win',"PjllUlilviiL "ml1.["and 1
nan-as wording ni two-evil ways, by stimulating- -,
ho passions of two parties into rival horrors, of j
ferocity on ono sido and retaliation on tho other. ,
The Nation, wh lo yet its voico "can roach tho proas
ind people," implores and invokoa tho judgment !
if tho world on tho fearful character given by the ?
English to tho initiatory Bteps in tho armod scrag- ?

Tho Cork Examiner, a journal of ability and in- )
lu nco, has a reply to tho Eirglish charge of tho 1
proclivity of tho Colts to ctnapiracy and tho ab- c
uorroncd of tho Saxon and Nirman for tho sanio,
?vhich is outsido of the subjoct matter, as tho rule
more than the race of people croatos conspiracy. ]
Historically speaking, howovc, tho descendante cf
thc Normans who wont to Ireland and became
;'moro Irish than than tho h-ieh" havo had .|iiito
is much to do with tho conspiracies and rebellions o
in Ireland as thc Celta. Mr, Stephens, who .is j
called "tho magician by wlom theso marvels have .
boon workod," is doubtless of Norman extraction
himself. Tho Examiner siggcsts that if tho Irish c
inhabited tho larger isle hey would bo as "soif- li
iatiafied, ns domineering, md aa regardless of thc j
feelings of others aa tb public for whom tho
rimes writes;" while, if ho latter wore in Ire- v
land, with poverty addec to oppression, there r
would bo no lack of conapiacios. . ii
The Examiner doos no; attempt to vindicate h
the Fenian conspiracy, bit, on tho contrary, re- c
gards it aa a misfortune. Sill it stands as a count a
in tho bill of indictment agiinst tho modo of gov- v
urning the country. "For.'it adda, "not only has fi
it sprung out of the feeling of tho people, natu?
rally but. not wise, but cyenmodorate mon cannot v
help seeing that this mad Fmian organization has v
roally produced from tho rulers of Ireland au C
attention to tho griovancos 4' tho country that was t
not given thom before." Tb stvlo of soino of that L
attention, however, did nol suit this papor any a
moro than it did tho Nation and wo seo this anti- li
Fonian journal alao driven back upon its nation- i:
ali ty. It regards ibo staniing out procoas as a 1
threat, to nae ite own wordathat "tho Irish plant- 1:
era would bo let IOOBO upon ho Irish nogroos," but 1
rathor defiantly declares tUt "tho Fenian organ?
ization, however ciao it is tobo disposed of, is not c
to bo dispersed by big bitlying talk." No'thor r
eau it Bco that the roawakenng of hostile oloments t
-tho Orango, for instauco-within tho country is
ii moans to se juro its poaco.
Tho fitrongost rebuko thc proposod arming of "
tho Orangomon has met haavisoly oinanalod from
a thoroughly "loyal" journl, and in llio North,
too, where the Orango intocat has its home. It r
comos from tho Northern Wig, a 1 jading papor of t
Ulster. Beincmboring and soadomning aB dis- y
graceful tho circumstance ofLord Clarendon's in- ii
tiniated willingness to havo ?ocourae to the aid of t
tho Orangomen dining hisr'ico Royalty in 1848, r
the Whig behevos that to icok such measures t
now-to arm ono section of tie people against an- c
other in a country so divided a ireland-would bo a
to "doliborately disaolvo acicty and establish t
monarchy." Tho impolicy otho modo is shame- s
ful to tho Northern loyalist. What a strange way
of rewarding the priests who lave opposed Fenian- t
ism-to arm and let loose tlur floreo and intolor- ii
ant enomios ! t
"If tho authorities," says ;hc Wh'g, "wish to a
render civil war inevitable, tby have only to tako
this top. We are certain tiat to put arms into i
the nanda of tho Orangemoi would of noeossity a
compel tho Catholics to arm ii thoir own d?fonce, (

orate act of tho Government, ivided Lite two hos- E
tile sections, ready in Ulater,iere, whore there is ?
not now thc least danger of a. insurrection, to ily t

Gladstone and tho majority in tho Commons 1
is called to tho rescue, win this mixture of i
advice and warning : "A Government tima i
openly neting on tho old tyrannical maxim c
or dividing in order to ctiimand, might bo >
summarily dismissal from oi'oo for what would i
bo not moro injurious to th? country than an
open acknowledgment, in th; face of'ibo world, ]
that thc Ministers of Queen Vicoria were quite un- t

Thc Condition of thc Freedmen at Arling?
ton-The Delights of Freedom,
At Arlington, General LEE'S estate, tho United
States Government have built a village and popu?
lated it with freedmen; tho former slaves of Vir?
ginia farmers. From tho following, which we find
in tho National Intelligence)' of yesterday, it ap
poars that thc condition of these freedmen is desti?
tute and desperate :
This is eminently a work of mercy, and wo do
not doubt that its claims will go homo to tho hearts
of our pooplo. Thoso who havo at this cold, in?
clement season, had a glimpse of the sad spectacle
which is any day to bo soon on tho bleak h?ls
upon which Freedmen's V illago is planted, w?l
not bo apt to doubt that there is misery looking
down in literally dark shadows upon the National
Capital. We are informed that thoro are in the
vicinity a thousand poor benighted creatures, scat- I
terod in their scanty clothing, freezing habita?
tions, ana with a dolod-out Government ration,
upon tho Arlington hills at thia timo.
Thoso miserable, ignorant, suffering creatures
are hore by no act of their own. The calamities of
tho times havo placed them thoro, and it is the
imperative duty of this community to bring thoir
condition and claims to tho attention of tho coun?
try, and to do thoir part in bringing them allevia
The whole project of such a village was, in our
judgmont, a mistake. Thoso poor croaturos should
not nave boen thus congregated in a droary spot
away from all civilized habitations, and where ovorl
thoso who aro able to do something for a subsist?
ance cannot possibly find anything to do. But
thoy aro there and must bo kept from tho mere
abject forms of sufforing, if they cannot be made
Tho destittito condition of the ?poor, doaolato
throng of human boings on tho Arlington hills,
[mown. as "Freedmen's Village," of which our col?
umns have again and again spoken, has arrosted
tho attention of some of our beneficent people, and
v meeting was on Wodnosday ovoning nola at the
'osidenco of Hon. George W. MoLollan to devise
noanB for tho alleviation of tho suffering. It was
locidod to pr?vido for those poverty-stricken croa
;ures a dinnor on January Sd, and' to gather and

Hov. Patton Still Favors tho Adoption of
the Amendment. *
Tho Florence (Ala.) Journal, published at tho
?om? of Gov. PATTON, gives a report of tho pro
?eedings of a public > meeting held there on the
17th instant, which was addressed by tho Gover?
nor. A brief report of his remarks is also given.
Ho is still strongly in favor of tho Constitutional
Imondmont, boliovingit to bo tho onlyrouto of oa
sape for the Southern States from more unendura
fie propositions which Congress will be certain to
?-r?sout and onforoo. He believes that the Stales
viii bo promptly admitted upon .itftjanamwn.
Tho Journal says that "tho whole tonor of Gov. ,
Patton's romarka was to impross upon the peoplo
he propriety of choosing promptly between the
Doraaintained by Federal soldiers."
Tho resolutions adoptod by the meeting declared
mo?Tconnao-ioo in tho Govornor, and requested
dm, in company with such ominont citizens of tho
?tato as ho might doom it proper to eelopt, to pro
>oed to Washington, and there -confer with tho
luthorities, and ascertain, if possiblo, whothor tho
icceptanco of tho Amendmont will certainly bo
'ollowed by tho restoration of tho Statos, in which
?vent thoy "aro in favor, of the adoption of this
Imondmont, bolieving it far hotter thus to sottlo
?ur rolations growing out of tho lato war than to
isle years of utrifo to secure bottor terms."

Instead of going on tho succeeding train, Mr.
