Letter from Gen. Forrest,
We find the following letter from
Gen. Forrest, addressed to''his late
comrades, in the Memphis Avalanche:
NASHVEUCE, May 16, 1868,
An influence, is at work in this State,
as I discovered since my recent de?
parture from Memphis, td preclude
any participation by the late Confe?
derate soldiers in the coming conven?
tion of the Democracy of Tennessee,
to be held at Nashville On the 9 th of
Juno, and in. the National Democratic
Convention, to be held at New York
It does not amonut to a purpose to
arbitrarily do this thing; but is felt
in effort? to induce every one who
took any part in the recent struggle
of tho Confederacy for the inde?
pendence to deoline attending to
these assemblies upon pretended
grounds of expediency, and submit
tho representation of Tennessee at
New York to men who were known
to be for the Union.
Upon consultation with many of
my late associates in the war, I have
concluded to advise against any
further political emasculation of our?
selves in the party movements of the
We are already proscribed in
.the Constitution and statutes which
mow govern the State, againt our
?consent, the proscription of which
have, through the mendacious hos?
tility of our legislative enemies, been
added to timo and again, until now
we barely live under the accumu?
lated weight of disfranchisement and
oppression. Shall we super-add, by
our own action, to those proscrip?
tions and exorcisms of ourselves from
all participation in the assemblies
of the State and National Democracy,
and publish to the world a confession
that we are too unworthy to intrude
ourselves into the councils of tho
party? The National Democratic
party, through its committee, have
invited us to take part in tho Con?
vention whioh is to assemble at Now
York on the ?th of July. It pro?
scribes no test oaths, no qualifications
dependent upon the part we have
taken in the late war, but, like a true
Constitutional party.it opens its doors
and invites all who may choose to
come, without reference to the past.
To suggest then an answer to so
catholic an invitation, that we who
are the true representatives of the
greater portion of the constitutional
men of the State feel ourselves un?
worthy to soil the deliberations of
that Convention with our presence,
would exhibit ns in an attitude of
servile degradation, that I trust we
have not reached as yet. In this
view of the case then it is my advice
(given from a senso of duty, and
against a reluctance which is averse
to any personal display of myself in
a matter of this kind) to all my com-,
rades to participate in the county
meetings, and to send up full dele?
gates to Nashville on the 9th of June,
composed of good and true men,
without reference to the divisions
which were made by the war.
The only hope of a restoration of a
good Government in thi3 country is
in tho success of the National De?
mocracy in the next Presidential
campaign. I trust my late comrades
will not, from expediency or other
motives, absent themselves from a
participation in the political exer?
cises which are to result in the
choice of standard bearers, mado
with a view to so patriotic and de?
sirable an end. So far as I am per?
sonally concerned, I have no desire
to take any part in politics, nor to
occupy any political position what?
ever; but I do not wish to seo my
State represented by men whose only
claim to public favor is the dexterity
with which they took either side of
the question in the late war, as inte?
rest dictated, and who bank upon it
as their oulv capital for popular sup?
port. N. B. F?HREST.
REVIVAL OF TRADE IN THE SOUTH
THE GRAIN TI?ADS OF TUE WEST.
Ouo substantial and gratifying evi?
dence of the revival of busiuess in
tho South, is tho construction of
new and costly steamships to do thc
carrying trade between tho port of
New York and Southern points.
Another important evidence lies in
the building of new lines of railroads
and tho extension and better equip?
ment of tho old ones. While theso
testimonials of reviving prosperity
are observed.it is natural that tho
commercial men of tho different
cities which are likely- to bo bouefit
ted by the return of better times to
to tho South should exert themselves
to attract towards their several
centres tho profitable results that
will flow therefrom. This is not
only the fact in regard to tho cotton
trade of the South, but it is likewise
so with the grain trade of tho West,
tho competition for tho demand of
1 tho latter increasing every year. It
may not seem necessary that thc
merchants of Now York should bo
incited to renewed energy and exer?
tion to maintain their accustomed
supremacy over these great elements
of commercial prosperity, bnt, with
the notorious efforts of rival cities to
divert from this mart the bulk of the
trades wo refer to, it is tho part of
wisdom for our commercial men to
look a little ahead, and by early at?
tention to the subject, prevent what
jnay eventually provo a serious injury
to their business.-New York Herald.
