THE SUPPOSED tOMPKOHISE.
The Liberal organ of thU city fall
ioto a very grave error, in etatiog that
onr delegates had pledged themselves to
rote for negro inffrage, at a separate
clause to the Constitution. We are
willing to gie our opponents all that was
promise! by the resolution which passed
the Connty Convention, but are opposed
to having the agreement warped and
twisted out of its proper meaning. The
delegates were not instructed to vote for
giving the negro the constitutional right of
the elective franchise, but to leave it to the
people to ratify or rfject the same. The
language of the resolution is, that "the
delegates from Sbeliy county be, and are
hereby instructed, to vote in said Con
vention to submit thequestioo of negro
suffrage to a vote of the people of the
State, it being submitted as an inde
pendent proposition, separate and apart
from all other questions." Oar repreteo
talivas are directed by their constituency
to support only a proposition to have the
question of negro suffrage submitted to
the people; not to place it in the Consti
tution along with the other proposed
amendments, botes a proposition separ
ate and distinct from all others.
Jt is likely that a majority of the mem
bers of the Coostitntiooal Convention
will be elected on the tati-suffrage plat
form, and in such event it was not
thought for a moment that the Shelby
county delegation shonld favor placing
negro suffrage in the Constitution. If,
upon the contrary (which is hardly
possible), a majority of the delegates
elected favor tbe extension of suffrage
to the negro for all time to
come, our representatives are in
structed to vole far, and endeavor to have
the entire question referred to tbe people
for final settlement. The qaeslien
might be submitted without it being a
part of the new Constitution, as the Con
vention could leave the matter to a vote
ot the people, subject to future con
trol and legiclalion by our General As
sembly. There are ft great many ways by which
negre suffrage could be directly acted on
by tbe people without its being at all in
corporated in our organic law. We are
not snrpriaed that onr fallen cotemporary
should endeavor to make his bed one of
roses, rather than . cold discomfiture,
which fopdly welcomes defeat. He
would, no doubt, like to pat the best face
upon bis desperate and straighteotd
situation. But the dodge won't do. Oar
representatives knew their duty, and,
when the time comes, will not fail to per
form it well. ' Shelby eonnty is a nnit,
almost, against negro sofrage, and upon
that platform stands our future delegates,
Stephens and HeiskelL
We were in hopes, when tbe Radical
party was forced to abdicate its power io
this State, that the people weuld have a
short seaeon of good government. Bit
such is not the case. It is true, we are
not eursed with a body of corrupt legis
lators, but we are equally damned by a
set who are totally incapacitated to do
the people's business. Thomas Jefferson
required that an aspirant for office should
be booest and capable. We would
reverse the rule and make tbe man
first capable and then honest. A man
without brains caa never accomplish
anything whatever, it matters not what
amonntof boneely he possesses. QT se
lected our Representatives for their boa
esif, and they have proven themselves
wantiog in tbe most important essential
that of eapacity.

Th Csnfederata hop, at the Overton
Hotel, which began late in the evening
and continued until late in the dark
hours of tha morning, was as complete
and bappr a success a the moat enthusi
astic dreamer oeuld have predicted. Tbe
affair Possessed doable interest, for it
.was given in behalf of a sacred charity
whieh all classes and conditions of socie
ty indorse and enconrage, and at the
same time it was the opening soiree dan
tante of the season. Tbe invitations
had not been out long, but the ladies
many of them had time to prepare very
tasteful and elegant toilets, and tbe styles
of last evening may be taken as prece
dent for the season.
. At eleven o'clock a fashionable affec
tation of latenees which we hops will be
discarded in future the music of Smith's
excellent band sounded tbe opening call,
and the programme began. Tbe assem
bly of beauty, graee and fashion was
equal to any we have ever seen in tbe
city. Tbe elite of society was largely
represented, though some were absent
who u so ally grace such gatherings.
Although styled Confederate hop, it
was not so in an exclusive sense, for our
beet people were In attendance, regardless
of civic antecedents. Tbe central figure
of observation and respect for an hour
was Mr. Jefferson Davis, who bad an
agreeable word aad ft smile, in hi own
happy way, for all who were introduced
to him. He retired early, accompanied by
ex-Gov. Harris and several other friends.
Among those who shared the general en
joyment and gave dignity and eclat to
tbe occasion, were Hon. Henry U. bmitn
and Mrs. Smith, Colonel Thomas H. Al
len and Mrs. Allen, Frank S. Davis,
Eiq., and Mrs. Davis, Colonel and Mrs.
Bickford. Colonel and Mrs. Nathan Ad
ams, Coleael Wm. R. Moore, Colonel
and Mrs. John W. Dawson, Captain John
Overton and Mrs. Overton, Colonel Pick
ett, formerly of General Hardee's staff;
General G. W. Gordon, Colonel J no.
Donovan and wife. Captain Parker and
wife, Colonel Mike Connell and bride,
Mr. and airs. Jessea Psge, Major Jsck
Havs aad Mrs. Hays, Colonel J. M.
Tomeny and wife, Captain Belcher and
his St, Louis bride, Major Severson and
Mrs. Severson. Colonel E. M. Apperson
and Miss Maggie Apperson, and maoy
others. Tbe leading belles of society
were present in their fascinating inno
cence and beauty, and it was remarked
that all wera dressed in exceed
ing good taste. The Committee on
Entertainment performed faithful ser
vice and acquitted themselves with all
honor. They deserve the highest praise
for the manner in which this, the inaugu
ral ball of tbe season, was conduoted.
The supper was taken in the ladies' or
dinary, and lasted from twelve to two
o'clock. We cannot enumerate the or
namental and substantial viands that
were so temptingly arrayed, but pro
nounce th supper an elegant success.
There waa tbe greatest abundance, and
that presented in the most seductive
form. Tbe cuisine arrangements of tbe
Overton are the plus ultra of the art,
not excelled, perhaps, in the country.
This featore of th evening's entertain
ment (th sapper) reflected much credit
on the liberality and good taste of tbe
worthy proprietor of the house and his
efficient corps, and was highly satisfac
tory, t '
As a matter of general iaterest lo the
ladies, who are always anxious to know
tbe coming styles and what every lady
wears at ft ball, we would like to give
some description of the dresses, tbe
ornament, and the tout ensemble pre
sented when huadred musical pairs of
feet kept tits to tha inspiring thrill of
music. Bat the task is too delicate and
arduous. A mere mention of the mate
rial composing ft lady's drees is not a
description, for there is something in the
manner. 10 speak, of dress and
the node which th (tfo fanaot catch.
Tbe dance eontioaed until tbna or
four o'clock this morning, when the
ladies, with their Arabs folded about
them, joined their gallants and were
wheeled away in their carriages. The
ball waa over, and we believe all will re
member it with sincere pleasure. The
maabers of the press acknowledge
speeial courtesies taceived from tbe gen
tlemanly attaches of the bote!.

A Lima, Pern, letter of tbe 24th nit.,
states that the American frigates, Kear

practice on tbe night of tbe third. The
firiog alarmed tbe whole town of Callao;
troops were put under arms, and the
President, in Lima, was telegraphed to,
as it was thought that ft meeting had oc
curred in the Peruviao fleet. When the
truth was discovered, tbe rretect ot
Callao received an apology from tbe com
maoders for not notifying him, but tbe
President demanded an explanation from
tbe American Charge d'Affairs, and
used very sharp terms in regard to the
matter. The Charge made what expla
nation he could, and sent a report of tbe
facts to Washington. Next day another
alarm of a similar nature occurred at
Lima, and a serious conspiracy was dis
covered and broken op.

" In modern society celibacy exists tor
