The People's Cognition.
A number of influential papers in the
J?tate are opposed to the calling of a
convention of the people, by the Leg
islature; some are not committed for or
against it, and the balance, comprising
the majority, are strongly in favor of
holding it, About four-fifths of the
members recently elected to the Legis
lature of Tennessee were elected by
the people mainly upon one-issue, viz:
the calling of a convention of the peo
ple, for the purpose of erasing from the
constitution and statute books certain
obnoxious laws, chief of which was the
disfranchising law. Gov. Shxter re
ceived the votes of about one hundred
thousand men because he had an
nounced himself in favor of a conven
tion of the people. So, in our opinion,
whatever the Legislature may think
of the necessity of authorizing the con
vention, they are as much pledged to
it as they are to vote against the enact
ment of any more Radical laws.
Fears are entertained by some that
the people will do a great many foolish
and intemperate things, if they are
entrusted with the privilege. If such
fears are not groundless, republican
government is a humbug, and should
But they are id'e and unfounded.
The people will take- care to send to the
convention men that will do no rash
thing, and who will do no more than
is necessary to be done. They will
appoint men who will bring no dis
credit upon the sincerity or the people,
or briujr reproach upon the State.
Judge H. S. Lee, a Memphis Radi

recommends that men be selected to

The Bjron &ranl.
The last number of the Atlantic
Monthly contains an article from Mrs.
Harriet Beecher Stowe, known
in the South as the author of "Uncle
Tom'sCabin," which has created a more
bitter and relentless, as well as a more
general criticism than that famous
book. Her last sensation is only a
long "magazine article in size, and pro
fesses to be the revealing of the skeleton
that has lain in Byron's closet for
about half a century. Mrs. Stowe
professes to have been intimate with
the wife of Lop Byron, who imparted
to her the true reason why she became
H?parated from her husband. She gives
fi.tho nrineinal cause for the seperation,
that Byron was known to his wife to
Ik? guilty of incest There are a num
licr of other improbable statements in
the paper, but the one we have men
tioned is the principal one. The whole
story is so monstrous and improbable,
that every influential paper we have
seen respectfully declines to believe it.
It would have failed to reach the no
toriety it has attained, had it not been
written by a lady possessing high
standing in the literary world. The
circumsiantial evidence against the
Rtory is 6trong euounh to convict Mrs,
Stowe with wilful lying, and mali
ciously destroying the reputation of a
virtuous and respectable woman, Mrs.
Leigh. Below we give some extracts
from a few newspapers upon the second
novel of Mrs. Stowe:

W. Forney says: "A more painful
narrative we never read doubly pain

Mrs. Stowe ekes out her sensational
maeazine article by quotation and mis

verse Why does not Mrs.
Stowe produce some authorization to
publish the" particulars with corrobo
ratory proof? The frightful charges rest
eolely on Lady Byron's osrton. (
The Corn Crop.
We have had reliable information

crop will be a perfect failure through
East Tennessee from the effect of the

pretend to deprecate the idea that any
one should call the late defeat of the
Radical party in this State a Democrat
victory. Our opinion is that our
contemporaries are stirring up the stuff
themselves. There is no need for these
articles, and we assure them that the
great body of the people are thoroughly
disgusted with them. The fact is, the
Banner lias been niguty ana nagery
for some w eeks. He seems to have the
rickets. He worms and twists about
like an eel on a gridiron. The strang
est part of his hallucination is, that he
wants i'endieton, ienoncKS, oeymour,
Brooks, Doolittle, English, Blair and
glorious Franklin Pierce, to give up a
name as dear to them as their lives and
honor, to please a few fastidious gen
tlemen, who, after witnessing eight
years of Radical rule, declare that the
name of Democrat stinks in their nos
trils. Before the war the Banner was a
Whig organ, then a Know-Nothing
concern and finally, in its utter abhor
ranee of its enemy, become an Opposi
tion organ. We would like for the

never very formidable in its numbers.
But for the war, we would all have
been forced into the Democratic ranks.
We were old line Whigs, Know-Nothings
and Oppositioners and for every

Democratic party. But since the war
has closed and we look around and see
but one organized party throughout the
government opposed to the Infamous
rule of Radicalism, we are in honor
bound to join in theranks of that party.
The Democratic hosts led bv Pendleton.
Doolitle, Hendricks and Hancock are
the only friends we have or have had

do not for one moment doubt that if
when the war had closed our old Dem
ocratic friends had been placed in our
position, and the Whig party instead
of the Democratic party was battling
against radicalism, they would join
their ancient rivals with alacrity.
They are men of honor, of patriotism
and high moral character, and we

Shall fro sounding down the aeex.
Though their mould is in the dust.
The enclosure and the church itself
have.had their useful ness and beauty
impaired very greatly during the war,
and very sadly needed much repairing.
The ladies of the congregation and
neighborhood determined to'raise funds
necessary for this purpose, by giving a
series of Tableaux. Upon Monday
evening last, it was our good fortune to
be present at this entertainment which
for beauty, taste and discrimination in
selection of scenes and characters, we
have never seen excelled, and which
can never be equalled save by an exact
repetition by the same parties which
we hope and earnestly pray we may
The Tableaux were given at Ash
wood Hall, the stately mansion of the
late And. J. Polk, under the super
vision of Mrs. II. C. Yeatman. The
most gifted pen could not do justice to
them. We, with our want of skill in
"word painting" shall not attempt to
describe, and must even beg pardon for
writing of them which we would not
do if we thought a programme would
reach your valuable paper.
We expected the threatening clouds
which rolled up from the west so heav
ily charged with electrictty, that eveu
ug, coupled with the distance from
town, would prevent a large attendance
Although many were prevented by the
seemingly certain approach of a storm,
from being preset, still upon our arri
val, we found a large and Intelligent
audience inipatienu.v awaiting the
rising of the curtain. For a moment
we had an opportunity of glancing at
the perfect and elegant arangements of
the stage, and the careful provision
made for the comfort of the audience
which I hear should be credited to the
exertions of those genial young gentle
men, Messrs. Will and Rcfcs K.
Polk. The curtain rising disclosed
"An old woman who lived in aBhoe"
whose fortunes are so well knoro to
the readers of that once all-absorbing
volume which to our young minds had
an attractive interest which no lines of
poets laureate, or Bachelors of Art
could ever after awaken. Looking
upon the numerous young Inhabitants
of that "shoe," how easylandiow pleas
ant to believe "of such is the Kingdom
of Heaven!" As to thyancient dame
who, according to. "Mother Goose's
Melodies" had charge of. this numerous
little flock, 1 peed only say that I fully
entered intalhe feeling, and endorse
the sentiment of a little .'curly headed
cherub sitting next me, who, upon the
raising of the curtain clasped her bands
nrptuously, and exclaimed n iih bated
breath, "Oh ?'' she the sweetest 'old
woman' in the world!"
And then came, too soon, we thought
until the curtain closed upon it also,
The most momentous act of modern

A better personification of queenly
beauty and regal grace could not have
been found even in old Maury, than
shown in the persou and manner of
the young lady representing the noble
and unfortunate Empress. Were I to
attempt to tell how magnificently
beautiful the ladies in attendance on
this occasion, appeared, those who
know them would t e reminded of a
sign-pa'nter's brush embellishing a
masterpiece of RCbens or Michael
Anoelo; and those who know them
not, even were I able to condense
with the pen of a Hugo, the compli
ments paid these fair women by their
admiring cotemporaries of their own
and other counties, and lay them at the
feet of these their fairer representaties,
would be faiu to exclaim, when they
come to look upon them, (and come
they surely would) in the language of
one who came from far to look upon
the glories of Solomon, "Surely the
half hath not been told unto me." The
selection of that gallant soldier Capt.
P. as a fit representative of the "Man
of Destiny" was most appropriate, and
displayed the most admirable judge

latter part of the evening, Maj. W. P.
in charge of "Ichabod's sehool" com
posed of a lot of mischievous youngsters
who must certainly have been practi
cing their rogish deviltry for a good
many sessions, judging from the very
natural way in which they played their
parts. We've seen "Ichabod," although
very thoroughly "gotten up for the

when calling out to a column of "boys

Fart of which I wish could bo nccn for
ever. "The Circassia n Slave Market."
Unskilled in the coinage of unmeaning
anguage, and untravclled in fancy's
fairy realms, we cannot cull flowers to
grace the expression of our ideas. Nev
er before have felt so painfully the utter
inefflcacy of mere words in describing
the deeper feelings of the human heart.
We feel as if we would be guilty of a
desecration if we were to attempt to give
utterance to the thoughts and expres
sion to 'the feelings of exquisite enjoy
ment, the thrill of delight, that pervaded
our whole being, as our eyes beheld the
beautiful, faultily faultless, Circassian
Slave, exposed for sale and undergoing
the scrutiuy of 'the baleful Turk.' An
old .'ex-reb' silting near us said invol
untarily, 'Great God ! how beautiful she
is !' We in our heart excused the seem
ing irreverence to the Creator, because
of the evident appreciation of His skill
in creation. Not until long after the
curtain had swept the beautiful vision
fi-om our sight, did wo remember the
other characters of this Tableaux vivanh
and then, with a shudder at the recol
lection of the position of the fair -slaves'
exposed in open market to the higheti
bidder and an uncouth Turk the prob
able purchaser ! When we recollect that
this was no mere fancy picture, but a
representation of what is of actual, daily
occurrence, how earnestly should we
pray for the onward march of civilization
and Christianity! How horrible to think
of the most beautiful of the daughters of
Mother Eve being bought and sold like
brutes! But we are wandering. To
return The other 'slaves' were as beau
tiful as Houiis. The slave-seller, it
seems to us, would have less difficulty
in buying than selling, if his fair chat
tel's wishes were to be consulted. As
for the buyer, we are sure he could get
as fair a 'slave' as heart could wish in
markets where he is known, 'without
money and without priee.'
