DISFRANCHISEMENT IN TENNESSEE. -
The New York Times, of the 19th,
takes from a cotemporary the follow?

operation of tho disfranchising prin?

X Southern Editor's Reminiscence*.
The Memphis A valanche indulges
in tho following bit of sentiment:
'.Late at night, while the fire and
lamps burn low and dim, we lay
down No. 10,032, Volume LXVUI ol
th - Nnlioni tl Intelligencer, and lean
bael: to think, overcome by the many
memories which its familiar caption
calls ip. "We have read it constantly
for thirty-two years, minus thc four
bitter years of civil war, and had the
good fortune to know its old editors,
Joe Gales and Wm. W. beaton, both
great and good num. now numbered
with the dead, but of immortal me?
mory. Not only of these princely
geutlemen does thc Intelligencer re?
mind us, but of many, many another
whom we were fortunate in knowing,
and whom the country has lost
Webster and Clay and Crittenden;
Dawson, thc Commodore, of Geor?
gia, peerless at the dinner table;
Busk and Houston, Floyd, kindest
hearted of all living men; that noble
gentleman, Butler, of South Caroli?
na, Prentiss, worthy to be called
Chrysotern, golden-mouthed, and not
only beyond comparison the most
eloquent, but the most genial and
generous of men; large-headed Tom
Corwin: Keith, gallant and good;
Badger, wise beyond other men, of
admirable wit, and always enamored
of tho truth; Sevier and Douglas,
Clemens and Quitman, with many a
dear old familiar face of others loss
known to fame and even more be?
loved, crowd around us as we write;
the dead mingling with the living.
Porter, of thc Spirit, and Inman, thc
artist, and glorious John Brougham,
and Alexander Dimniitry, large
souled as one of Homer's heroes and
wise as Plato; Breckiuridge and
Bonham, Boyce and Robert John?
son, four men of like princely na?
tures; all'these, and many like these,
wo met at Washington in the bettei
times, when thc Senate of tho United
States sat in the old chamber, and
that city was the capitol of both thc
Northern and the Southern States.
Ehen, fugaces.' how the years drifl
away, and we become, garrulous, anc;
forget that the long list of names,
and thc memories they call up, o:
'the reflections of the gods' and timei
gone never to return, and scenes al
ready dim as they recede into tin
past, have interest for no one bu
ourself! Nevertheless it is written
it is a cry from the heart. Let i
stand. Thank God, neither powei
and malice can confiscate and sell fo
coin to knaves the happy or the sat
mementoes of the past."

Representatives, on the 18th instant
Mr. Morse, from the Committee oi
Federal Relations, to whom was rc
ferred the special message of the Go
vernor and accompanying documents
made the following report, whicl
was unanimously concurred in:
"The Committee on Federal Bela
tions, to whom was referred the Gc

upon equitable and constitution,

that should bo demanded ot' an hoi

why this General Assembly shoul

They therefore believe that it is inc:

A GREAT MISTAKE.-We now ai
then, says the Louisville Courier, s
expressions which imply that tl
South alone is to be affected by ?.
various schemes of reconstructio
and, accordingly, that she should
allowed to make np her mind in t
case free from the influence of d
cussion elsewhere. This is a gre
mistake. The winde country is to
affected by the overthrow of t
equality of the States which the \
rious schemes of reconstruct!
equally involve, while Maryland, a:
Kentucky, and Missouri, and Tc
nessee arc to be affected also by t
immediate sacrifices which t
schemes impose. Every citizen
tho country, no matter where
dwells, is deeply interested in t
rejection of these schemes by t
j South, and, if he is sensible of j
own interest, is bound to exert hi
I self to secure their rejection. I
j exertion is not an impertinence oi
j liberty, but a duty. He cannot i
I gleet it without culpability.
j My opinion is, said a philosophi
? old lady of much experience and c
; servation, "that any man as d

Thc Dignity of Labor.
Tho Loudon Times alludes to the
general riso of prices as one of the
characteristics of the present genera?
tion, and adds that nothing has risen
in value so much as man. lt declares
that at this epoch there are no glut?
ted labor markets and over-stocked
professions. There is a dearth of
applicants for employment, anti the
sume dearth of applicants for admis?
sion to the old liberal professions
indeed, in all inferior callings down
to that of domestic service. This re?
sult is attributed to an extraordinary
multiplication of demand, and an
equally remarkable modification ol
social opinion. The Times says
"The time was when there were only
three recognized liberal professions.
Wo might now reckon thirty, ano
what is of still more importance, an}
one of those is thought just as libe
ral-that is, just as becoming to :
gentleman as any other. Nov.-a
days, young gentlemen go into count
ing-houses as readily as they wonk
into the guards, and are though
none the worse of. There is an im
meuse field of employment, and m
pr?judice to interfere with anybody'
choice. Tin; necessary eonsequene
is that all old callings suffer a little
and those most in which there wa
least natural attraction."
Such, adds the Richmond Whig
are the results of the multiplication
! of industries and a high industria
development. The world over, ther
is a demand for intelligent labor, air
when it can employ itself to most ac
vantage without incurring soci:
ostracism in the physical calling, a
distinguished from those purely mer
j tal, we must expect these latter to b
i shuuned. lt is gratifying to witn?s
tho triumph of educated labor ovt
hoary prejudices, and to see that ii
telleot and energy, untrammeled b
I social restraints, are allowed frc
scope and a field for selection limite
only by the almost innumerable pr
j sent avocations of life. It is to edi
I cation, to science, that we are ii
[ debted for these almost countle
inventions that have made machine:
supply thc place of human mnscl
and have left man to supervise ai
direct it. The re-productive pow
thus created is wonderful to eontei
plate. Machinery makes machiner
and thc more there is created, ai
the greater its capacity, the more e

labor, the greater the demand for
the richer its rewards, and the mc

THE LAST LETTER OP N. P. WILLIS.
The following is the lust letter ever
written by N. P. Willis, und is ad?
dressed to his friend and partner in
publishing the Home Journal, "Six.
SU E BOOM, IDLEWILD,
December 4. L866.
LEAK PHILLIPS: The promptness
and efficiency and devotion with
which you sprang to my side, on the
doctor's announcing me a dying man.
at my city lodgings, wen; memorable
indeed. You got me home ou that
beautiful Sunday as few. except a
"ministeringangol," could have done
thc kindness. 1 ..m not suffering at
present: but my paralysis has gradu?
ally crept from my legs upwards to
my lungs, and 1 am unable to sit
erect without fainting. I am still
very much as usual in the brain.
With a fearful storm raging in the
Highlands about me, I am thinking
how you are "making up" without
me at the office, and wishing I were a
"wee" bit nearer to yon. My friend?
ship with you, which I cherish so
pleasantly, stands a chance to bc thc
last fully intellectual act of my life;
yet it is by no means a novelty.
When I found dear old Morris loving
you. and making you his private sec?
retary and literary assistant, ten
years ago, I adopted you as a crea?
ture to be loved, and I have found
you io be a man singularly modest,
ami curiously unappreciative of many
good qualities in yourself. 1 think,
for an editor, your capacities an; ex?
cellent. There is no better appre?
ciator of a good thing, moral or in?
tellectual, statistic or witty; but as a
business friend and partner, you arc
invaluable. 1 am gratified to have
lived long enough to get you fairly
into harness, as a well-developed
partner and co-worker. 1 could have
wished for more-but, alas! for this
fragmentary life, it is hard to bc
taken soon enough; it is hard to bc
left long enough.
I am writing this, half dead and
half alive, by the hand of my atten?
tive and sweet wife, and it is not to
be published while. I live. But you
will be at liberty to refer Io it and
print it, post mortem.
God bless you, my dear friend.
Yours faithfully, thus far.
