never been in the military, or naval; service
either of the United States or Confederate Stales of
America. -,- ....(.' . ) t . - .; ... n

tions and orders. .. i.
5. That, since the first day of July, the accased

but if he has been guility of any offenses, he has
been liablu to trial by the olvil cohrta and'an'im

Whereas, The great Union party of the United
States, now in possession of the administration of

principles, and present position, to. the mainten
ance of liberty, the freedom of the press, and speech,
the preservation of the authority of the United
States over all its territory, as well as the constitu
tional rights of all the States. ''',.,. .
' In accordance with that history; and. as the re
sult of those principles, it gave to the administra
tion ef the late lamented Abraham Lincoln, an
undivided and enthusiastic support ; by which, he
was enabled .to guide the ship .of state , safely
around the storm of a mighty rebellion, to a peace
ful harbor.' . -' '.. ';. '
. And whereas, Tne present executive" of ,' the
United States, elected to the Vice-Presidency by
the.great Union party of the nation,' nnd called by
the Providence of God, to till the .chief executive
chair, "ha, . by . patriotic, devotion "to his .country;
entitled hiniself to the confidence of every patriot.
Especially' would we mention' that "noble. Ulustr.t
tiou of . patriotic, and unselfish devotion to country,
above partyj which lie gave, when on ike day
of December,'.. 1860,' he tm a the Senate pf the
Uuited .States,' and boldly denounced treason, and,

and denunciation which raged around him, hegAve
to Abraham Lincoln a hearty and hold support.. In
March, 18C2, be accepted .office , under him the
office of Military Governor of his' State,, partially
redeemed from tlje , black flag pf treason which
pffice he hel 7jr, three lorig and .Verrible' years,
laboring all the time with patience .andasMdMly,
to restore law aod, order to the people of Tennessee,
which bad been taken .from . them by traitorous

Andrew Johnson, .President of the United Stales,
we hereby pledge to him oar hearty sympathy and

1. Resolved, That true patriotism' is national and
not sectional, and knows no North, no South, no
East, no West, but embraces in its cares and iuter-
terests our whole broad country,, recognizing the
rights and welfare of all peoples and races within
its ample bounds, to equal and exact justice before
the law, nnd, regarding as we do, Andrew John

learn that, the coin and bank, notes .are in
the hands of .the committee appointed to examine
the assets of the Bank of Teuuessee. and the bal
ance of the assets we fiui correct, as per statement
ot the books. , . ,
Of discounted notes, bills of exchange and sus
pended debt, we find . $222,869, 78, pf which we
consider the sum of $200,000 good to the Uaok.
The amount paid for, the bank building .and
lot ' at Memphis was $12,500, for which, .the
hank is offered $30,000 in,. United Status cur
rency.- . ,. . . .
The amount due to other banks and to individ
ual depositors is $328,136 80, consisting almost en
tirely in deposits of Confederate, money, of which
the pan bas on hand $&B,674 Vf. ,- . .
. From evidence which we consider entirely relia
ble, we believe the hank, with all its assets, was
safely deposited by tho President, and Cashier at
Athens, Go., in. 1863, since which. time the boxes
containing the assets have been opvned, and the

Mr. Carrigan: The citizens of my distr ct are
law abiding. My remarks of yesterday were made
to elicit information. The subject is rery Impor

its tiiinr.ml.a ml rnnoxiupniia .
Mr. Trimble : Having been unwell for some
days, I do not propose to make a speech, but as
the author of the bill under discussion, it is bnt
right I should make a few remarks in its vindica
tion. The bill was introduced by me last session,
when it created a spasm of apprehension similar to
I base th measure on no law question, but on
justice ft lone. I want to help an oppressed race lo
rise from degradation to manhood., For that pur
pose I introduced the bill. When, in April, 186D,
negroes went as laborers" upon the 'fortifications,
through tho streets In f ederal uniform, but un
armed, th city took a spasm. These imaginary
alarms are vastly worse than real ones.
What does the bill propose? Simply to make
certain persons competent witnesses: The laws of
Tennessee now exclude tbem, but tb ' constitution
does not., aucsb laws bars been well enough un
der slavery, but that is dead, and the reasons for
tlie laws have expired also. The being, ones, a
chattel and a persoa for special reasons, bos risen
to the dignity of a man through the influence of
the war, and it now a memo, r of society. - At the
battle of New Orleans, General Jackson called him
"fellow-citizen," and Lincoln has called hint "anW
American citizen of African descent," I invoke
these names 'because they call forth the spirit
which exalta-this rxce.v Gen. Jackson's address
from Mobile to tlie colord people of , Louisiana, is
full of this spirit, (Mr. Trimble . here read the ad
dress, commenting on it as be read.) '
Negroes testify before the Courts at w ashlngton
city, and tne eintireut intellect Uiere do not tear
the supposed tuint of equality. , Why should they
not be permitted to testily here? r.ven in ten
nessec, the Senator from Lincoln can be sued by "s
negro, and his preperty.be levied on to th extent
Of: the debt.. . According to thi view, - that would
make the black man his. equal. . But this question
lies in a nut shell. The negro can in this State
testify against persons of his own 'race, and that
fact-admits that he has tb intelligence to appre
ciate that binding force of an oatUi. if, therefore,
he is capacitated to tUL, pvuch as against those of
bis own color, why is be pot equally capacitated to
testify against a white man? My experieneo is
that the most harmless person in the world is a liar,
Besides; the' same motives, 'such as avarice,- pride,
revenge, and soon, daily niovrth white equally
wi'h (die black to swear, falsely. . There , sits the
cute lawyer ; there the astute , judge ; there" the
jury, judging; bf the credibility of the witness1 'yet

witched with prejudices to think so? Let ut help
a down-trodden people not by pulling whits nieu
down, but by lifting unfortunate black men up.
Do so, and their industry, tbelr Wealth, their morals
will increas yonr wealth, yesj even your morals.
If they behave themselves.- how can we withhold
our respect T Whatever is respectable challenges
our respect, and we can't1' restrain it. We cannot
violate eternal laws without punishment Those
who break those fundamental laws of our moral
nature, -may 'xpcf to: suffer. This bill proposes
simply to do a justice to Ih black man which ia no
