GE.V. FRANK P. BLAIR.
The expulsion of the ncgroe from
the Legislature of Georgia in calculated
'to teach nn important lesson. It de
stroys the confidence of the Radical
party in its own scheme of reconstruc
tion. It breaks up in an unsuspected
quarter tho dark conspiracy which had
negro-domination for its object, and
revolted at no means to accomplish
it. It makes tho Umpire Stato the
third iu which tho ends have failpd
from thu very violence of the means. It
endorses the verdict cf Alabama and
Mississippi that this country cannot bo
governed 6olely in tho interest of party
at the expense of tho Constitution. It
shows attain that even those elements
of society which may bo called tngeth'"'
to feasf upon the pub.'C pluuder, may
bo made speedily to re-pond (0 reasou
and to respect tho ermuion iutcrcst; in

Om our first page we give prominence
to tho late correspondence between Oen.
Kosecraus, on the part of tho Northern
people, and Gc-u. Lee, with other dis
tinpuisbed gentlemen, of tho Southern
States. Jn importance! it is uot subor
diuatc to the correspondence which led
to tlie surrender of the Southern armies.
The famous and parabolic applc-treo has
born nothing but bitter fruit sinco our
great commander " put up his sword
beneath its brunches in 18G5. The
connection which was broken for four
Iqng years has refused to heal externally
while tho irritation within was perpetu
ated. A spcond capitulation has been
piade, aud it was fitting that this time
those men of able intellect aud exalted
' virtuo should come together around tho
swoet waters of the Vy'hito Sulphur and
ask every good bcart in our laud to aid
them in casting overboard those bad
passions and abandoned men hitherto
so fruitful of evil. We would gladly
concede the poiut that, in this last at
tempt to bring into co-operative effort
Northern magnanimity and Southern
sincerity, tboso who havo figured
most conspicuously are representative
wen of their respective sections. Well
might Gen. Loo have assumed to speak
for tho wholo Southern heart, which
palpitates affirmatively to every senti
uieut of that grand reply;
The mighty people dwelling North of
the J'otomac aud the Ohio, who, for our
conquest, came down with Graut and
overrau the fields and cities ol the
South, have been cal.ed upou to ecuse
an nggre-itn which is no longer te
aisted. Many of their ablest men and
most successful military J a len have ask
cd them to meet us uudor the broad flag
of a new Union. Iu November we wi 11
know whether jtlio Northern heart re
spouds to this appeal as readily and
ritnnrnuttlv as the Southern. If that
response bo affirmative, the noblo mis
sion of Gen, llosecraB. will havo been
crowned with success, and the grand
circle of the Union will then eloo upon
a treat people made wissr by a costly
nud bloody struggle, aud stronger in 1
fiiondship whoso value wns ouly appro
eiated wheu almost lost beyond recovery
H.ifc if this consummation, however
Llessed in the hope, should bo blasted
in the execution, wo look for desolation,
in some shape, 10 cast again its puiteu
tious shadow over our land. Then, in
what quarter of tho globe it may please
' .God to allow us to re-erect the Temple
of Civil Liberty wo know not, but in

about at a dead lock. The bill passed
by tho House is .beyond qvstinu the
most LigliJiauded piece 1 1 usurpation
which has ever boen attempted iu the
uauie of civil liberty. Ilsdiluneo of the
Cousiitutious ot the IViUd States aud
of the Stato of Tennessee seems, in (lie
japii whiil of political ine'tioss, to
awaken but little alarm. The Radical
policy appears, in tho number and bold,

iyg individual ho allowed a (J '"id culm
on the eoast of Norwawy to tempt him
into a search for the Maelstrom. Ilis
alarm was greatest when he first began
to circle slowiy but surely around that
vast but fearful outline beyond which
nothing could go and hopo to return.
We have passed beyond tho b)ow circles
of reflection and reasop. The awful
whirl and mar of revolution.' havo pat
alized tho eotiscrvativo functions of the
mind. Prudence has giveu way to
curiosity, and alarm to wonder. Self
love eceuis to havo perished, and we
really revel in tho doubtful cxtacy of
amazement. Iho Governor ot lenncs-
see, like all other violent and eraio
functionaries, has become the impcrso
nation of defiance to all restrain. Two
sources of hope yet remain, tho
Senate of tho Stato and tho National
Executive Tho former seems to eschew
tho extremo lawlessness of which it was
begotten, and has refused to assent to
the bill passed by tho House, and it
has shown soma respect to the restraints
usually observed in legislation by de
clining to allow the House to run riot
over tho wishes of the Senato as well as
tho people. Tho namo of Mr. Ryder
having been placed on the joint com
mittee ts Washington, tho Senate bus
refused tQ allow his name to bo with
drawn at the opition of Mr. Singletary,
tho delegate from Garter. This ccntle-
man found much fault with the gentle
man from Shelby because he had been
opposod to tho impeachment of the
President; had, on various occasions,
vindicated the courso of Senator Fowler,
and was opposed to the military bill of
the present session. All of which the
gentleman from Doe river pronounced a
record upon these questions with tho

had the effect of bringing to his feet
Mr. Ryder, who seems, notwithstanding
his recent associations, to have retained
some degree of self-respect, and he pro
uounced tho first charge a falsehood,
pleading boastfully his guilt with regard
to tue last one. All ot which was
quietly pocketed by hiiu of Doe liver.
The President assures the good pco
plo of Tcnnesseo thut the national
forces will bo used to watch and restrain
the Teuucesee Stato Guards, if the Seu
ato should yield to the insane demand
of tho House. Tho wholo people of our
land should riso to thank Andrew
Johnson, who claims that he has left
house aud homo uud kiudrcd and lands
for his own opinions, and of whom it is
but just to say, wha'cver may have been
bis errors as military Governor of Ten
nessee, that he canpoint to his course in

out of him in that connection was, that ho

said he, " If Grant Is elected next fiovern

of Grant personally, he said :
" That he is entirely underrated by the

calculated the loss of life in a campaign
Next comes Gen. Forrest's opinion of the

in some respects and agree in others, it is
cmious to see. Forrest was. in the first

the correspondent who took him in charge,
on Ku Kluxism, and though the veracious
writer winds up by telling us that the ex
rebel said bu did'ni belong to the order, yut
he would have us believe that Forrest gave
definite informal ion ss to its nAiubering
tony thousand in Tennessee, and live bund
red and til ty thousand in thu whole South,
had a captain iu each voting precinct, knew
its enemies, &c, and if lirownlow's order
for shooting them down was carried out
there would bo a bloodier war than ever.
