The Duty of Republicans. .
Republicans in Tennessee should lose no
time in pcrfectimr organizations for tho
purpoe of defeating the opjioueutg of re
publicanism in America. The fortunes of
democracy are beginning to wane; and the
triumphant success of President Grant's
administration causes n lagging In their
ranks, which, if we meet with a well or
ganized and determined opposition, will
demoralize them to such a degree that we
will In the future make an eay conquest
of tlieir strongholds, and once more wrest
from the grasp of these enemies of the Gov
ernment the State of Tennessee.
Take no eOunesl of those cowards who,
lieeaUM; of the seeming strength of the de-iiKK-raey,
think that there is no use to try
to succeed against them. They have com
mitted tjie .Irretrievably blunder, of allow
ing weak, bAd jinfn to gain prominence in
their party, which is a certain precursor of
defeat. No party can succeed in this Coun
try (thnnk to the honest people)' who al
low men who are notoriously corrupt to
gain the ascendeuey aud epntrol their party
liollcy. And the way to succeed In the ier
manent advancement of the Republican
parly js to.put none forward but- the yery
best men in our party. Let the Republican
press take an independent course in this
matter, and when men who are corrupt,
men whose M records" will not bear the
most riff Id scrutiny, come forward claiming
the suffrage of tho party; 'then, I say, let
our Republican Journalists speak out for the.
Interests of the party, and against these
demagogues who can but lead us to defeat.
Let every true Republican awake to the
perils which surround hint, go' to work in
his neighborhood, and help to organize tho
party ' for the summer cnmjmlgn, which
will be a continued struggle until after the
Novemlier electloiis. The Judicial election
will come first, ami we should make a de
termined effort to elect a competent judlt
clury, and not fuiI,to elect, in eacii circuit
and district in East Tennessee, competent
men to fill the ottlces made vacant by the
New Constitution, We should have but
one Republican candidate for each olllco,
atid he must be sober, honest, capable and
true such u man as will rellect credit uion
our party, and one that we need not blush
to support. If we will adhere to this jkiII
cy we will surely succeed, and If we aiv de
feated in Hast Tennessee it will be our own
fault, for, with pure men upon tho platform
of the National .Republican., Party, wo have
a wide odds in our favor, aifd If wuare well
organized the democracy will not make u
bold and determined light against- us. But
If we put forward weak, bad men, they
can, and ought to tlefeat us. There can bo
no excuse for allowing this to Interfere In
the least with tho prosjiects of our party,
if we are Iruo to ourselves.
Let every Republican, then, do his whole
duty, Jd avoid the calamity which Issure
! to follow a eourne i-O unwise and foolish.
Select your men, talk the matter over, con
sidering it in all its bearings, aud when u
man oter than your choice asks you for
your .support, tell him frankly that Ko is
not your choice. Tell him who you nro
for, and why .you are for him. An honefct
man will think none the less of you for
being thus plajif. Stich conduct will ;ng
forward good iiten, atld detov j, j' muu frora
coming forward, uy.u thus save hard feel
ingn nnd dlss:nsiq;is in our ranks. Make
your otcrt choice from tho material before
you. hud then jnd them through.
OUR IRON INTERESTS,
In a hite number of the Iron Age, wo
find a letter from Commissioner Wells, in
which he makes reference to some facts
and figures furnished by oho Georgo T.
Lewis, of Tennessee, Upon the cost of. mak
ing pig Iron. We think that before many
years iron can be made in Tennessee for a
price approximating that fixed by Mr,
Lewis, but ve are satisfied it cannot now
be done. Before making our crltlclms, -we
will give what Mr. AVells says :
"Tho Commissioner would first ask attention to
tho nature ot the information generally availa
ble to the public in respect to the present nvc
rage cost of tho manufacture of pig iron in tho
United States. In a letter published in the
1'ottsvUlo (l'enn.) Mininri Journal, dated Sept.
2, 18G0, and written by Mr. Georgo T.' Lewis,
of Clarksville, Tennessee, whom tno editor en
dorses, 'as ono of tho most reliable men in Ten
nessee, nnd a thoroughly experienced iron
manufacturer, formerly of the firm of Woods,
Lewis. & Co., Cumberland Iron Works, Ten
nessee,' tho following statements are made. He
Terring to the cost of manufacturing iron in Ten
nessee, 'in localities lying directly upon rail
roads completed, or being built iir. Lewis
''Herewith', I submit an estimate of the actual
cost of ono ton of pig metal, supposing the ca-
pacity of the furnace to he U,0OU tons per annum,
located near the beds of ore, coal and limestone,

"Mr. Lewis further continues :
"Now, sir, I will give you tho cost of one ton

"Jlut Nashville,'' continues Mr. Lewis, "is
not the cheapest place to make pig metal. It
can "bo mSdc oatuc" Nashville and Chattanooga
railroad and delivered in Nashville at tho rate
of $19 per ton." ,
Wo. have submitted these estimates to
tlitj most experienced and extensive iron
manufacturer in the State, and he pro
nounces them entirely too low. As the
head of, probably, the very largest Wast
furnaces in the South, wo attach very great
weight to his judgment, atid give his esti
mates as those of a practical Iron man.
Our informant furnishes us tho following

We believe that, when our beds of ore and

Mr. Lewis, In his estimate of the cost of
Halting pig iron at Nashville, prices coal
at 12 cents per bushel. Knoxvllle coal is
now actually selling In that market at 35
cents per bushel, and Jt is utterly Impossi
ble to furnish any kind of coal at anything
like tho prices ho states. If iron can be
made at such prices in Nashville, It Is a
marvel tp us why it does not rival Pitts
burgh osan iron markets His figures aro
unreliable, and do gross injustice to iron
men, as every practical man will nt once
We aro in ho way interested in this con
troversy, and have no pet theories to sus

prosperity we believe to bo almost entirely
dependent upon tho growth of our manu
facturing intcreste. We nrc satisfied from
the exhibits made t6 u by our iron men
that .without the protection heretofore af
forded by Congress thdy cannot prosper.
We give these figures and facts for tho in

THE FIFTEENTH AMENDMENT.
Ilntlflcnjtioii I'roclnlmctt'-A. Message from
the President of tlie XJullcU States.
Washington. March 80. Tho Presi
dent to-day having approved the Texas
bill, :oon thereafter sent the following
message and accompanying proclamation
to CongreSs, announcing the ratification of
tno x meentn Amendment :
Washington, D. C, March 30, 1870.
To the Senate and Jfousb of Representatives:
It Is unusual to notify the two Houses of
Congress by message of the promulgation
by proclamation of tho Secretary or State
of the ratification of u Constitutional
amendment. In view, however, of the
vast importance of the Fifteenth Amend
ment of the Constitution, this day declared
a part of that revered Instrument, I deem
a departure from tho usual custom justifi
able. A measure which makes at once
four millions of people voters who were
heretofore declared by the highest tribunal
in the land not citizens of the United
States, nor eligible to become so, with the
assertion that at the time of tho Declaration
of Independence the oninion was fixed
and universal in the civilized portion of
the white race, regarded us an axiom, in
morals as well its in politics, that " black
men had no rights which white men were
bound to respect," is indeed a measure of
grander importance than any other one
act Of the kind from the foundation of our
free Uoverninent to the present time. In
stitutions like ours, in which all power Is
derived directly from the people, must de
pend mainly upon their intelligence, .pa
triotism and Industry, I call tho attention,-
therefore, of the newly-enfranehised
race to the Importance of their strivimr in
every honorablomanner to lTiake themselves
worthy of their new privilege. To rhe
race more favored heretofore bv Our laws.
I would say, withhold no legal privilege
of advancement to tho new eltizen. The
framers orour Constitution firmly believ
ed that a republican form of government
could not endure without Intelligence and
education feertcrally dilluhed amontr the
people. The Father of his Country, In his,
Farewell Address, uses this lanminire:
"Promote, then, as. a matter of primary
importance, institutions ior tne general
diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as
tno structure or tne uovcrnment gives
force to public opinion, It Is essential that
public opinion should be enlightened."
In his first annual message to Congress the
same views were forcibly presented, and
arc ngain urged in his eighth message. I
repeat that the adoption of tle Fifteenth
Amendment to the Constitution completes
tne greatest civil change, alia constitutes
tne most important event mat lias occurred
since the nation camo into life. The
change will be beneficial in proportion to
tne neeu mm in jriven to tne uruent recom
mendations of Washington. If these re-
commenaations were important then, with
a population of but a few miilions, how
much more Important now. with a popu
lation of forty millions, and inerensfni' in
n rapid ratio. T would therefore call upon
congress to take an tno means within their
constitutional power to promote and en
courage popular education throughout tho
eountrv. nnd upon tho people everywhere.
to see to It that all who possess and exercise
political rigntH snail nave tlie opportunity
to acquire tho knowledge -which will make
tneir snare m tno uoverninent a olessing
and not a iianger. jjy sucn means only
can the benefits contemplated bv this
amendment to the Constitution be secured.
