Tuesday Morning, June 26, 1856. .
! Thc Finit to Bow thc Knee.
With ft haste that would be inde-:
cent in any other dfficm?, the old
sinner who tyrannizes over the peo
p?e of Tennessee has issued his pro?
clamation, convening the "so-called"*
Legislature of that unhappy State to
meet on the Fourth of July next, for
I the purpose of ratifying the odious
_ ... Constitutional amendment j oat passed
by Congress.
The black and malignant ooncep
; tion of desecrating the political Qnvb
bath of the country, hy assembling
his mongrel crew of radicals on that
day, for the purposes indicated,
could not have been hatched in any
other brain-outside Of Thad. Ste?
vens' penitentiary-than that of
Brownlow's. In ordinary times, and
'."for ordinary political purposes, it
would be deemed a shanie to have
fe;-"'commenced a session of any Legisla
?gl '"fere on that day; but when the pur
*" pose is to prostitute a once noble
r State and people before the idols
erected by Thad. Stevens and his
followers, the execration of every
true man, woman and child in the
Southern States, will be coupled, if
they speak of him at all, with the
name of William G. Brownlow.
On that day-the Fourth of July
ninety years ago, the fathers of that
revolution which brought civil and
religious freedom to the then colonies
of England, signed a declaration of
rights, which has become immortal
ized throughout the world, and which
will be held in sacred remembrance
aa .long as liberty has a dwelling
place upon the earth. And now,
not a century has elapsed, when
some of the degenerate heirs and
inheritors of the priceless boon
bequeathed to them, are to assem
~ bl? and desecrate the day, by sign?
ing aicay the rights their fore-fathers
asserted, and for which the blood oi
patriotic thousands were shed during
the eight years' struggle for liberty
and national independence. Thie
recreant Governor intends, if possi?
ble, to place the people of Tennessee
under a worse tyranny than that ex?
ercised by Great Britain in 1776-wc
mean the tyranny and despotism oi
the unprincipled faction, who control
' the legislative department of thc
Government, and who crown theil
series of oppressive measures against
the South by this insulting and de?
grading "amendment" to the Consti?
tution of the United States. We
trust in God that such an appendix
will never sully the pages, of that
glorious instrument.
That our readers may understand
the views of this radical Governor
which, of course, are the views of hil
Legislature-we extract the following
paragraphs from the body of his pro
clamation:
In view of the rebellious eonduc
of so many of our people, and th<
treachery of those who controlled hei
action, Congress has deemed it neces
sary to require of us certain condi
tiona precedent as guarantees for on:
future loyalty. To this end, it hm
been deemed necessary, to the se
entity of the whole conntry, that tin
State Legislature should ratify cer
tain amendments to the Constitution
of the United States, which may b*
briefly stated as follows:
1. Equal protection of all citizen
in the enjoyment of life, liberty am
property.
2. That classes who are disfran
chised without crime shall not b
taken into account in fixing the basi
of Federal representation.
3. That certain persons who h av
proved themselves dangerous to th
peace of tho country shall not be eli
gible to office.
4. The va?dity of tho natiom
debt shall not be questioned, while ai
debts incurred in aid of the rebellio
are illegal and void.
?* As to tho disloyal portion of ou
" people, these terms are mild in th
-extreme, and it is hoped that there i
nothing in them repugnant to th
sentiments of the loyal ; or if thei
be, that all objections will be yiolde
upon the altar of our common t our
try.
This is the programme of iufam;
concocted and drawn np by one wi:
has been suffered too long to enjc
that liberty of tongue and pen whic
was guaranteed by that instrurnei
which the radicals now wish to doh;
by tacking on this abominable amem
ment. God save the true people i
Tennessee, and give them, ere loni
a happy deliverance from misrule ai
tyranny, and a restoration of the
rights and privileges, in accordant
with tho policy enunciated by thc
distinguished fellow-citizen, wh
standing at the helm of State, in tl
only barrier agai'nxt despotism left to
them and the whole people of the
South. - J! ^

This subject is flt present claiming
the attention, and, we think. very
properly, of some of our Southern
papers and citizens of other States
of the Sonth. It ia but reasonable
to suppose that in time th freedmen
wiD be so identified with our inte?
rests, political and material, that it
will be of the utmost importance
they should be educated, and titas
rendered competent to contribute to
the development of the resources of
the country, with nmch mare force
and effect than they could in n state
of ignorance.
But this education should be con?
ducted nud supervised by those
among whom they were born nud
? raised, and with whom, even now,
j in their new condition of freedom,
they have strong sympathies and
j attachments. In process of time,
and especially if we are to be govern?
ed by tho ultraists of the North, these
people may attain to tho exercise of
all the rights of citizenship. Each
State is its own judge in this matter,
aud whenever a State feels that her
laborers or peasantry-the freed?
men-are properly qualified by edu?
cation and otherwise, the franchise
will doubtless be conferred upon
them.
But independent of this considera?
tion, how much moro valuable will
educated labor be than that of igno
rance. And a proper system of edu?
cation, expressly for this people, in
traduced into our present free schoo'
system, will strengthen their sympa
thies and increase the ties of that na
tural community of interest, whicl
must be perfect to retrieve the for
tunes and develop the wealth ot th<
South.
Thc Army.
The new anny bill which has pass
ed the House prohibits anybody wh<
served in the civil, military or nava
service of tho Confederacy from beinj
appointed to the army of the Unite*
States.
This is a contemptible niauifestatioi
of spite; but we wonder if the countn
should get involved in a foreign war
if these same radical legislators wonk
not be glad to get into the rank am
file some of the boys who used t<
wear the grey jacket, and if the;
would not revoke the prohibition, i
j they could obtain the services of sue]
officers os Lee, Johnston, Beauregard
and others, who officered the arm}- o
the late Confederacy.

THE PROSCRIBED CONFEDERATES. -
Tho New York News argues that th
new constitutional amendment, eve
if ratified, will fail to exclude froi
office tho prominent Confederate o
ficers at whom it ia aimod. Tl
points aro these: First. The operatic
of the amendment must bc prospec
ive, or else it would conflict with tl
spirit of that other provision of tl
Constitution which forbids thc pa
sage of ex i>ost facto laws. There
.something in this point, but v
should not like to rely upon it. Tl
second, however, is better. It i
that the parties to be proscribed mu
first have been convicted of havit
"engaged in insurrection or robt
lion," before they could be exclude
from office.
By a private letter from the pt

The Charleston Courier publishes
'the subjoined extract from a letter
irom the Chamber; of Commerce dele?
gation, under date Cincinnati, 17th
instan t :
"Messrs. Mordecai. Trenhohn,
Kerr, "West, and Courtenay^ ore all"
here. We have been received by the
president and members of the Cin?
cinnati Chamber of Commerce with
great courtesy and kindness, and :
spent last evening at the Club House.
We find, that the Knoxville people are
altogether in favor of the Bine Ridge
route, and, therefore, we wait for
their delegation to arrive here. They
ore expected to-morrow, and we are
to have a public meeting, on Tuesday
evening, of the citizens, whore we
shall be heard.
"The plan of building railroads, in
this section of country, is to get sub?
scriptions to a road, to be paid as a
bonus, on tho construction of the
road.
"Already there lias been subscribed
$800,000, in Cincinnati," and it will
reach $1,000,000. This is exclusive
of what will be done in louisville.
Now, if wo put in the $3,000,000 al?
ready spent on our Blue Ridge, road,
as a bonus, the company will have
S4,000,000 subscribed to completo a
rood to cost S7,000,000 originally.''
The Nashville Union und American,
of tho 22d inst., says:
"George A. Trenhohn, of tho
Charleston delegation to Cincinnati
on the railroad project, addressed tho
citizens of the latter city, on Tuesday
eveniug. President McGhee, of the
Knoxville and Kentucky B??road,
also read a report upon its condition.*'
Kow IN CHARLESTON.-On Sunday
there was somewhat of a riot in
Charleston. Some white and colored
boys amused themselves by forming
allignments and pelting each other
with stones. As it progressed, grown
people of both classes entered into
tho melee, with sticks and other
weapons. The police interfered, and
it was thought h:ul quelled the dis?
turbance, but afterwards 300 negroes
i paraded the streets, directed by some
eight or ten negro soldiers. Thc po?
lice, with a detachment of regulars
j from the Citadel, ti nally restored or
I der and quiet.
OUR It AIRO AP CONNECTIONS.-Tho
i Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel, of
j Sunday, urging tho importance of
speedily finishing up contemplated
railroads, says:
Tho Millcdgeville road, when com?
pleted to Macon, will certainly draw
much of the Western trade and travel
hero. The projected line to Colum?
bia will shorten the route North
nearby 100 miles, and will give almost
an air line from Richmond, ria Dan?
ville, Greensboro, Charlotte and Co?
lumbia, to this place. The Milledge
villo road will be an extension of tins
inner and shorter liue to the West.
These two latter roads-the Colum?
bia and the Milledgevilie-should bc
pushed to completion as rapidly a*
possible. We know that tho scarcity
of money in the South, at this time,
forbids the hope that sufficient funda
can be raised here for the completion
of these roads. The bonds of the
companies can, we are reliably in?
formed, be sold at a fair price iu
New York. This is the plan that lins
been adopted by other roads to raisf
funds, and we eau see no objection te
? it. At all events, something must b<
! done, and done at once, or the inter?
ests of the city will bo seriously im
paired.
j PRESIDENT JOHNSON AND TIM
I IRISH.-Says a Washington corros
pondent of the Nash ville Banner
under June ll: The brushing awa]
of the Fenian cobweb seemed to leavi
Congress and the President nothing
todo but to continue the old quarre
over reconstruction.
The resolution of Mr. Ancona, how
ever, offered in the House to-day, fol
j like a shell into the camp ol" the radi
cals. They hid been donouncin,
Andrew Johnson, for three or iou
days, for his interference, with th
invasion of Canada by Messrs
Sweeny and Company, and in thi
way endeavoring to excite tho Iris:
and to array them against the Admit
istration. Mr. Ancona came to th
rescue like a knight-errant. "Let u
repeal the neutrality law.?," said he t
the radicals. That was a poser. T
vote against it would have been t
, I stultify themselves, and to have e>
! hibited their utter hollowness to th
?Irish; and to vote for it would 1
I ruin, as a matter of course. "If yo
j are in favor of a war with England,
. said Mr. Ancona, "if you really wai
to help the Fenians, let us repeal :t
the international agreements betwee
Great Britain and the United State
i and prepare at once for the conflict.
Never was the duplicity of a pari
. j so suddenly and vividly rev?ale?
, I Scbenck turned pale; Thaddeus St
j vens turned red; and Banks frisk*
. about like a little Scotch terrier loo]
' ' ir.g for a rut hole. There ec "M 1
! j no debate, and they did not dori
. ' lay the matter on the table. So, oft
a good deal of confusion, they "r
; ferred" Mr. Ancona's proposition 1
: tho Committee on Foreign Affair
. j where it will rest until the day of a
journment.
TH? European W?r.
. A Southern gentleman now resid?
ing in Stuttgart, Germany, is a regu?
lar correspondent of the-So nih er?
Christian Advoctile. As ho appears to.
be a good observer, and has excellent
opportunities for hearing and seeing
what is going on, we copy the follow?
ing extract from his last letter, writ?
ten au the 17th of May. He says:
I see very uearlv the same scenes
transacting around and about me
that I saw in Georgia in 1861; camps
being established; drilling of recruits;
railroad trains of troops hurried to
and fro; horses being pressed into
service; young men of twenty to
twenty-six being torn from their situ?
ations and families to fight for
what? Ah, there is the difference!
The Southern soldiers went to fighl
for principle, fur independence, and
became patriots, heroes; whilst the
German soldier is forced into service,
and most reluctantly seizes his anni
against his brethren to fight for t
chimera.
The war is most unpalatable arnon{
all classes of people-merchants, ina
uufacturers and bankers, whose busi
ness is already bitterly suffering
mechanics, farmers, soldiers and-tin
women. The most opposite effort:
aie continually being made at Berlii
to preserve peace still at the hist mo
ment; but the authorities seem to Ix
doomed to a fatal blindness, for the;
do not show yet the least dispositioi
to listen to the sober, well-meant ad
vices of reason. Arrogance, greet
for annexation, the fancied ecrtaint;
of having the prey in their clutches
aro too deeply rooted there. Th
Prussian Cabinet does? not evei
shrink from the fearful rosponsibilit
of conjuring up a general Europea:
war, with all its horrors and ruinen
consequences to national prosperit
and individual happiness. The king'
own family-with thc exception c
two or three princes commandin
some corps in the army ami politic:1
fanatics-are. for peace.
The queen, the queen-mother, th
Princess Royal and Chicen Victori
have used their utmost exertions t
induce the King to change his cours*
In vain! Even the Emperor of Rm
sia has vainly urged that, in case c
au outbreak, he would side with An:
tria. With the exception of a fe
miniature principalities, hedged i
by the Prussian monarchy, the who!
of (rermany stands arrayed in am
against the latter, which aas no oth*
open sym]iathizei' and ally than Ital;
England and Russia are opposed t
war; hence, under certain eireun
stances, rather against instead ot ft
Prussia. France will hardly adv?
cate nn aggrandizement of Prnssi;
Napoleon will, therefore, nt faillies
content himself with intervening, i
the course of the war, to secure h
own spoils ami the lion's share. Ne
elections for the Prussian House i
Representatives have been ordere?
and it remains to bo seen whether tl
Chambers will vote tlie million
treasure and men that this fratricid
war demands, or protest against KUI
proofs of loyalty.

We extract the following from an"
article in the London Times, June 0 :
In one quarter, any delays of the
German powers; are likely to excite
impatience and - indignation. Ital/
has given herself np eo completely to
a warlike policy, that it wonk! he
impossible for the Government to
stop the people, and difficult for the
people to stop themselves. Wo know
not what secret understanding there
. may be between Prussia and Italy,
whether anything like a convention
has been arranged, and, if so, what
form it has assumed. But -virtually
an alliance has been concluded, and
Italy will not fail to urge upon the
Prussian Government the expediency
of immediate- war. Italy can now
only see safety in such a course. Her
levies aro so large, her exiienses so
enormous in proportion to her means,
the enthusiasm of the people has
been so roused, such multitudes of
men have flocked into tho army, that
to return to a state of political quiet
and expectation would, in tho opinion
of Italian politicians, be equivalent
to national ruin. With her, to draw
back would be fatal, while to stand
still and allow the country to be
crushed by a war expenditure is im?
possible The "revolution," to use
the Continental phrase, has been
! called to the aid of the Italian
Government, and this same revolu?
tion is a spirit which is not easily
laid when it has once been summoned.
We may then expect to find the Prus?
sian Government exposed to the
strongest solicitations of its ally, and
Italy, perhaps, committed to a strug?
gle by some rash act ol' those whom
she has summoned to hor banner. It
is announced that the King was im?
mediately to arrive in Florence, and
til at General Cialdini was also to be
, there. Councils of war will, no doubt,
I follow, aud Italy will calculate her
I ehuuees iu attacking her enemy, with
j or without the help of an ally. But
if Austria remains on the defensive,
! those who attack the9%)uadrilateral
will have no easy task. Somothiug
I more than zeal and patriotism is re
. quisite to turn a strong army out of
such a position.
If any gleam appears ou the dark
; horizon, it is to be found iu Ute temper
, and behavior of th?; Prussian and
i other German populations. The Kui},
of Prussia and his minister maj' wei
; hesitate, when they seo "what misery
I they have caused, and what a spiri
j may soon be roused. The eouscrip
j tion presses with tremendous severity
] on the Prussian people. The conn
; try, though richer and more indus
: trions than formerly, has uot increase*
I in population to a degree which wil
! admit of such enormous gathering
I of men. The army which is actualb
' in the field is said to amount to 280,
i OOO fighting men, with 55,000 aeces
, series. There are 110,000 depo
; troops, and 120,000 of the first hoi
j of the Landwehr in garrisons. Ii
: times of enthusiasm, like 1813. thee*
j calls for flesh and blood may be an
; swered without unwillingness; but
i war to please a minister., or eveu t<
1 gaiu a sea-coast and a fine liarboi
must not make too great demand*
The requirements of the State hav
i now beeu beyond all bounds. A popt
J lotion of les? than 19,000,000 is ea
! peoted to support an army of mor
I than 500,000 men on active servie*
! To make up the number, the clerk i
j taken from the counting-house, th
j tradesman from his shop, and the pei
; saut from the field. Women are everj
i where performing more than thei
, usual share of the hard and coors
! work of tho world. An act of hoi
i tility on the part of Austria, such t
: the entrance of Marshal Benedek int
Prussian territory, might make tb
people forget these hardships i
! hatred of the enemy, bnt, at presen
tho discontent is chiefly with the
; own Government. Xot until tl
enemy strikes a blow, will tho Kin
j have a really zealous and warlike arm;
As long as pence is preserved, there
the probability that this dispositic
: of the Prussian people may ha^
sonic influence upon tho ministeri
pi?1 ?cy. The middle States, whic
have not yet given up hopes of reeoi
: ciliation, are, no doubt, encouragi
I by this disinclination for war to pe
severe tn their efforts. Their ow
; limited power, however, and tho cur
brous machinery of the Confeder
; tion, are likely to interpose great o
stades to effective action.
With the abandonment of the Co
ference, the efforts of the ueutr
powers have naturally come to ?
end; though, ii there were to appe
; any chance of resuming profitai
j negotiations, it would, doubtless, n
; be neglected. Every power is inti
! ested in checking a war which m
spread over the greater part of ?
continent Even distant Spain ai
j Portugal think it necessary to ta
measures for insuring their neutra
ty. As regards Central and Sont
eastern Europe, the prospect
gloomy enough. "Xor are the oat
ing portions of the Turkish cnipi
yet so secure that wo can afford
dispense with the supervision ai
II guardianship that the great pow?
; j have exercised. If those powers f
[ ' engaged iu war, an ambitious emp
like Russia may attempt a return
. a policy that has only been tempo
1 rily abandoned. Though we cam
? I thiuk it right that tho neutral Sta
i I should further interf?re with 1
belligerents, they might take coun
together for thc; benefit of the rest
Europe, and use their influence
prevent any ambitious power fr
I turning the general confusion to

"WHAT WILL FRANCE DO?-The col?

owing to the stubbornness of Austzai
can scarcely fail to wound ?he amour

from him a reputation as grand
pacificator. He was to preside over

been a labor of sisyphius. The hands
am working well, and there is much
building going on.
