Platform cf the Conservative Party
Unanlmonsly Idoptod in Conven
tion, at XJashvill?, Tenn.,
.pril IS, 1C67.
Thc Head to Victory !
We, tlm Conserv.it.ivc Union men of Ten
nessee, adopt the following platform cf prin
1st. We are in favor of the Union of the
States under the Constitution of the United
States, and pledge ourselves to support and
maintain the same.
'2d. Wo are the friends of peace and civil
law, and that these jrreafc objects can be best
promoted by legislation roeoirnizina; equal
and exact justice to all exclusive privileges
3d. We r.re in favor of immediate resto
ration of our disfranchised fellow-citizens
to all rights, privileges and immunities of
full and complete citizenship.
4th. Than our colored fellow-citizens, bc
ino; now citizens of the United States and
citizens of the State of Tennessee and voters
of this State, are entitled to all the rights
and privileges of citizens under the laws and
Constitution of the United States and of the
State of Tennessee.
Gth. We are opposed to the repudiation of
the national debt; and are in favor of equal
taxation, as the proper method of paving the
Gth. That the' establishment of a standing
army in our State in time of peace, is a fla
grant and dangerous encroachment upon
the rights and liberties of the citizen;
heavily oppressive to the tax-payer, and evi
dently designed to overawe voters atthe
7th. We cordiallv approve of the patriotic
efforts of Andrew Johnson, President of the
United States, in defending the Constitu
tion, preserving the Union of the States, and
maintaining the supremacy of the laws.

Be it remembered that one Cv S. Mercer
is editor of that radical organ, the Nashville
Press and Times, and be it also remembered
that he was editor of the Nashville Daily
Union in 1SC2, and in an issue of that paper
of June 19, 1S82, he wrote as follows:
'"We must get rid of the free negroes.
Our safety and our happiness alike demand
that we provide them with a home. The
foolish outcry against the cost of doing this
is idie talk. So soon as the work is fairly
begun the expense will be but trivial. A
treiity might be made with the Liberian
government by which the colonist might be
placed under a limited apprenticeship for
two or three years, so that our government
could receive coflee, palm oil, dye-woods,
ivory, and the oiher articles peculiar to At

Aioce ly the star-li jj'ited window
The soft breeze was threading my hair.
As if lie cool ogers of woman
Were peeking to drive away care!
The bright lights were burning in Heaven,
The sky was so tranquilly blue !
Ah! the soft-fingered breeze and the starlight
Remind lae, Jlary, ef j ou !
And I thought if the stars were nnkiadled
With a light all ange:ic above.
1 kastr of two orbs that wera lighted
With the impulse and glory of Love!
So alone by that etar-lighted window
A song came gushing and freo.
Ai d the burden was: " Mary, 'dear Mary,
My heart is linnjry for thee!"
It-alia may boast of her beaut iei.
Her radiant Hebe-like girii
Illspania in troubadour music
Jlay eing of her orbs and her cutis
Cut give me thy cheek where the lilies
Are fair as the foam of the sea.
And thy soul when it echecs the burden :
" Jly heart is hungry fur thee 1"
I know no', I ask not if others
Are rarer or fairer than thou
In thy soul there is love and devotion.
And beauty f.r me on thy brow !
In sunshine or c!oud gentle ilary
0 1 day-star and night-star to me!
I shall sing in my soul but this burden :
"3Iy heart it is hungry for thee?"
Ceeuked. The New York Post (radi
cal), of the 14th, lashes the lawlessness of
Brownlow and his conscience bereft party
in this style :
The Union men of Tennessee are making
a serious mistake in gratifying the'r revenge
ful feelings ; they have even more interest
in the preservation of law and order than
their enemies; and they will in the end be
the heaviest losers by their own offences.
Their region needs a larger population, more
industrious and skilful men, and more capi
tal, but they will get neither while the laws
are violated there as they seem to be. More
over, all violence injures the violent at last.
It brings on a reaction, from which they will
suffer; it demoralizes those who act in it;
it gives the country and themselves a bad
name. It hinders their advance in pros
perity and wealth It perpetuates strife
and hatred and family feuis. Let them
tale heed while yet there is time."
There is not in the Northern States to
day either a Statesman or a politician that
sides with the home, Tennessee radicals, nor
does a single radical paper in that section
of the country approve the doings of the
What a Loyal League is Made Of.
Some one has said that a Tennessee loyal
league is made up of haters of liberty de
stroyers of peace, prosecutors of men, de
filers of law, sowers of iniquity, reapers of
corruption, workers cf evil, scorners of
mercy, movers of sedition, apostles of the
devil, and demons expelled from predition,
who hold lying to be a virtue and honesty a
vice, Brownlow a saint, patriotism, treason
and midnight oaths a sacred covenant, who
meet at the dark hour of midnight, when
honest men aro asleep, to plot against wo
men and children, curse newspaper editors,
spit venom, invoke wi a'h, destroy peace, cre
ate dissections, break up churches, defile re
ligion, proselyte ministers, stir up strife and
send out emissaries to lie, steal, pilfer, rob,
cheat aud defraud ; who are roving, sneaking,
skulking and prowling through the country
like hungry sheep-killing hounds.

declares that the recent telegram forwarded

would be called in August, by the Executive,
was sent with the President's sanction, and
that it is a mere ruse to prevent a July ses

An Important Huling'ia Bankruptcy.
A3 many new and intricate questions are
likely to arise in the settlements under the
bankrupt law, it is well for all concerned to
be informed of decisions as they are made,
from time to time, by authorities entitled
to weight. The law report column of the
New York Tribune of the 13th instant, con
tains the. following proceedings in the United
States District Court, for the Southern Dis
trict of New York:
An important order was made yesterday
by Judge Biatchford, involving the construc
tion of the 2 1 st section of the Bankrupt
act. The learned judge has set the example
of putting a liberal construction uronthat
section, by granting a stay of proceedings
on an order of the State Court for examina
tion of a judgment debtor, wiien the credi
tor has not proved his claim. The follow
ing papers will explain the matter fuily:
THE PETITION FOR THE ORDER.
In the District Court of the United States
for the Southern District of New York.
In Bankruptcy. In the matter of Horatio
To the lion. Samuel Biatchford, Judge of
the District Court of the United States for
the Southern District of New York : The

York, respectfully represents that your pe
titioner, on the 7th day of June, 1?G7, duly
iiied his petition in bankruptcy in the ofiice
of the Cierk of said Court, as appears by
the certificate of the Clerk of said Court,
that one of the debts contained in the
schedule annexed to said petition is a judg
ment in the Supreme Court of the St-ae of
New York, for the city and county of New
York, by Walter S. Vose and James F.
Joyce, against you" petitioner, on the 18th
of Augut, I860, for $1,103 72, and that au
order 'was entered in said action on the 24th
day of May, 1867, requiring your petitioner
to appear before one of the Justices of said
Court, on the 4th day of June, 1867, and
such further days said court should name,
and make discovery on oath concerning his
property; that your petitioner has duly ap
peared in obedience to said order, and said
examination has been adjourned until this
twelfth day of June, 1867, at one o'clock in
the afternoon ; ttiat your petitioner has ap
plied to the attorney of said Vose & Joyce
named in said order for an adjournment of
said examination appointed for one o'clock
to day, and acquainted said attorney with
the due filing of his said petition in bank
ruptcy, and showed said attorney said cer
tificate thereof, but said attorney has re
fused to adjourn said examination.
Wherefore your petitioner prays that an
order of this court may be entered staying
proceedings under said order for.examina
tion, and ail proceedings in said cause on the
part of said judgment, creditors, and their
attorneys, until the question of your peti
tioner's discharge in bankruptc3r shail be de
livered, and for such further or other order
in the premises as to the court shall seem
meet. IIokatio Reed.

THE ORDER OF JUDGE BI.ATCUFoKD.
The petioner in this case having, on the
7th day of June, 1867, duly lilcd his peti
tion in bankruptcy in the ohice of the Clerk
of this Court, for the purpose of obtaining
tli3 benefit of the act ot Congress, approved

throughout the United States," and ic ap-

that Waiter S. Vose and Jaaies V. Joyce ob
tained a judgment in the Supreme Court,
State of New York, against the said Hora
tio Reeu, on the 18th day of August, 1860,
for the sum of $1,103 78 damages and costs;
and that an execution upon said judgment
against the property of the said Horatio
Reed has been duly issued and returned
wholly unsatisfied, and that said judgment
is a debt provable under the said act; and
that proceedings are now pending in said

Louisville Convention Abandoned.
The chairman of the committee appointed
by the Democracy of Kentucky has given
notice that the convention heretofore called,'
for the 4th of July, at Louisville, will not be
held, as tha call had not been generally and
favorably responded to throughout the coun
try. We quote his language in this connec-
"Notwithstanding the desire of many
for such a convention, it appeared that a nia-
i i ' M
jority c f the Democratic party in Kentucky ' suggested before our County Court, puhli
and elsewhere are not convinced of the im- j cu,;,jn was ade. The party, at the time,
nortance and necesitv at this time, and l.e- j ... , .r,, .,. , ... . . ....
have that the energies of the party, should ,
he devoted to local convention, meeting au

" We think proper, therefore, (although j
the State Convention is not in session.) to j
eonform to the will of the majority, as ex- j
pressed by the Stato Central Committee, and
by leading members of the party, by with- j
drawing the invitation of" the State for a
General Convention of the Democracy at j

OLD II AIDS.
In the Bolivar Bulletin of June the Sth,
quite a censorious article appears in public
print for the inspection of that unhappy
class of ladies iu our country who have
never been able to marry, because they are
not admired, courted, nor loved by any one
outside of themselves. Old maids would
like to marry, but why should a man bring
around him a inSuenco that not even a pes
tilential insect could not live in.
The lifu of an old maid is a tedious one,
Sighing for some old gauder to come. -
"Carret"' is a place where useful material is
placed for safe keeping and future profit for
the family ; but inasmuch as old maids are
generally rejected, and considered useless
dumber, unsavory salt, good for nothing, it
was thought wise not to store old maids
away in that apartment of the building, un
less their old age, and their delapidated
minds i?nd bodies would produce "mildew"
and rust in tho midst of that which is
Cobwebs are peculiar to old maids, or at
least some of them have much to say about
them. Reason for it, I suppose, is that they
need all such webs to make their waterfalls
and supply the place of their departing hair
as they grow old.
In an article of May the ISth, I give some
good advice to the corrugated old maids of
our country, and we are still in sympathy
with them, and honestly wish they eouli
marry some one if he is able to undergo the
misery of such a life with such a being. -
Mr. Editor, one thing I will now mention.
I think ic is very much in the way of mar
rying. They talk too much, and generally
appear too anxious to solicit attention from
the ganders. You know, sir, that " modesty
is a quality that highly adorns a woman,"
and I believe good old Dow expressed the
truth in part when he said about the talking
of old maids :
Nature partial in her ends
Made man the strongest :
Justice to make amends
Gifted old maids with tongues longest.
And it is generally thought the gift of a
long tongue, as well as a homely faces, make
much against this contentious part of our
Y'oung men are too cunning to be snatched
up by old maids old batchelors aud wid
owers prefer young ladies aud widows.
Hence the old maids must settle down in
lonely solitude, among their own cobwebs
poetry, and sing the doleful song with bur
dened, oppressive, burning sighs.
Married hope is forever gone.
And fond ones are flown ;
o w ay niy fate to atoue
In this bleak world alone.
Make good use of whatever has been
loaned you by Providence, though mn have
seemingly neglected you. Heaven never
will. Happy consolation, as you are old
and still advancing.
N. B. There is an article in the IJalfYite
Bulletin, of June the 22d, which savors too
much of personalities, therefore I cannot re
ply to it. The controversy started upon the
importance of "Old Maids" and "Bache
lors." I have endeavored to use tho terms
in the plural form, without any personality,
as I regard feelings. Another reason, no
"Old Maid Monstrosity of 35" overwrote
it hence I cannot Cre at a man over the
bhouldcrs of a lady.
Take Your County Paper.
The following incident illustrates the folly
of refusing to take your "home paper."
The Marion (Ala.) Commonwealth says:
Last week a gentleman called in at our
office and asked to be entered on the books
as a subscriber t r t-IiG Commonwealth.
"I've already lost 5 4-3 by being without
my count' paper," said he, "and 1 have at
last determined that it is cheaper to take
the Commonwealth than to loe a second,
sum of a like or larger amount."
On being questioned as to how he had lost
the sum named, he answered :
"A certain estate against which I held a
claim for 5 lo, was advertised for linal set
tlement, and the settlement was made and
confirmed before I knew that any such thing
was thought of.
1 did think I was too poor
to take the paper, but 1 can afford 4 better
than 1 can 45. "
We showed, last year, how one of our
friends hut $S0 by not being a subscriber;
now we have another who lost $45. And as
these cases only came accidentally to our
knowledge, it is fair to presume that many
others exists of which we know nothing.
In addition to the above we can state-that
; a gentleman who lives in North Mississippi
stated to us that he had lost $4C0 in a simi
lar way. The insolvency of an estate was

Ex-President Davis to be Killed if
Found on TJ. S. Soil.
A Washington correspondent of a Penn
sylvania paper says :
" When it was found that Davis was to go
on bail, a matter which every one there looks
upon as a virtual discharge, the excitement
among the veteran soldiers knew no bounds.
The result had been published days before,
and half expecting it, a meeting was privatly
called at which some sixty discharged sol
diers were present, who bound themselves
sacrtdly together under the name of the
" Andersonville League," every member sub
scribing to a solemn oath that if justice
failed in its duty they would take justice in
their own hands.
This brotherhood no man was qualified to
enter but those who had suffered either from
wounds or imprisonment in the rebel pens
during the war. It now extends to New
Y'ork, Philadelphia and Button. While the
bail was being arranged by the Court at
Richmond on the day set for the trial, a pa
per was handed to Davis' counsel, Charles
O'Conor of New Y'oi k, warning him of the
existence of such a league, and naming two
men in the courtroom as members. These
men were seized as soon as they left the room
and not released until Davis was in New
Yrork. According to the oath, as long as ho
remains on foreign ground he is safe.
Daniel Webster once remarked : " Small
is the sum that is required to patronize a
newspaper, and amply rewarded is its pat
ron, i care not how humble and unpretend
ing the gazette which betakes. It is next
to impossible to nil. a sheet with printed
matter without putting into it something
that is worth the subscription price. Every
parent whose son is away from home at
sehool should supply him with a newspiiper.
I well remember whit s marked difierenco
there was between those of niy schoolmi t33
who had and those who had not accede to
newspapers. Other tilings being equrl, she
first were always superior to thu Inst in da
bate, composition, and general intelligence."
