THE PKESS AND TIMES
The Nashville Press and limes is
very much elated with the prospect that
Congress will pass a law amonding tho
Constitution of tho United States pro
viding for "tho establishment ol uniform,
impartial suflrago in all the States."
That paper has seen tho evil effects of
disfranchisement in this State, and it
confesses that "thousands of legal voters
now citizons of Ohio and Missouri, may
forfeit their suffrage permanently by re
moving to Tennessee;'' "and experienco
has fully demonstrated that no provision
can prevent a law of disfranchisement
from representing, in a considerable de
gree, ho private partialities and dislikes
of registration officers." This is a con
fession wa hardly expected from tho
Press and Times, but it should surpriso
no body, for even that paper is becoming
disgusted with the outrageous manner in
which this instrument of despotism ts
wielded in this Stato. It is tho literal
truth that legal voters in other States
may foifeit their suffrage by removing to
Tennessee, and this would certainly be
the case if thoy wcro Democrats. No
man, however bitter and persecuting a
' Rebel" he may have been, who estab
lishes tho fact to the satisfaction of
the Itegister that ho is now a Radi
cal, experiences any dimculty m
getting a certificate to vote, while it
is next to impossible for a man who is
not a Radical, however clear his "Union'
record, to get a certificate. It is this
partisan character of tho administration
of tho franchise law that has disgusted
oven tho Press and Times, and caused
it to hail with rejoicing the prospect that
an amendment to tho Constitution of tho
United States will bo proposed and rati
cd. establishing "uniform, impartial suf
frage in all the States."
The super loyalty of the country, as
reflected through tho Radical press, is in
a stato of mind about Revcrdy Johnson.
the Minister to England. His recall is
demanded, and if his Presidential name
sako doesn't do it, it is threatened to
to make him tho subject of tho first of
ficial decapitation under Gen. Grant.
His offense is, that being sent on an
embassy of great moment requiring ju
dicious and delicate diplomacy, he con
ducts himself with tho amenity and
courtesy characteristic o( a gentleman,
and calculated to impress the government
and tho people to whom ho' is commis
sioned with tho impression that he re
presents a nation of civilized people and
not a community of overbearing ruffians.
Revcrdy Johnson is a statesman of
great experience, and a lawyer of eminent
abilities, and received his breeding
and education in the best circles in
the country, lie did not deem it neces
sary or quito proper, to stride up to Lon
don, ring tho bell at Buckingham Palace,
or wherever Victoria was to be found,
present his bill of damages, demand its
settlement, and in the event of hesitancy
on the part of the lady, threaten to fasten
tho talons of tho American eaglo in the
mano of tho Uritisli lion and wallop the
breath out of him in three minutcsby tho
clock on St. Paul's. In other words, Mr.
Johnson understands his business, and
so far as wo can sec, has gone about it
Tho fuss made about his gracious post
prandial speeches, and tho fliug3 at tho
manner in which ho has recovied the at
tnotions of tho high officials of Great
Britain, is disgusting, but eminently be
fitting tho press of the party that ranks
Butler, Logan, Sickles and Kilpatrick as
pinks of propriety, and representative
stattsmen, soldiers anddiplomatists.

Governor Brownlow has heretofore
exhibited a strange callousness to tho
criticisms on his proscriptivo course
toward his political opponents, whn have
been disfranchised because they opposo
him. The Legislature was about to as
semble with tho notes of a Republican
victory vibrating through the land, and
tho Governor fearing that victory would
mollify the members toward tho dislran
chisod, flew into print to urge them
not to bo generous and just " on the false
plea of .magnanimity,'' and to make suro
that the members would understand that
this was the wish of tho fiovcrnor,
he appendol to the article his signa
ture of "Senior Editor." Tho Governor
winces under our criticism of this indeli-
calo display of bitter, unrelenting feelin;
toward the disfranchised ritiz-ms of this
Slate. It is an evidence that he at last
realises the enormity of his offense against
right and decency when he attempts to
justify it by such frantic ebullitions as
"iTho Ukios and Ahshicak savs
Wo aro not surprised that ho (oursclf )
has thrown the might of his intluenro
against restoring to the great, body of
tho white men the rights ot which they
liavo boon unjustly doprircd.' 'Un
justly deprived ! Poor innocents ! How
terrible to be ' tnijitstfj deprived' of
their ngliU : they never renounced t!i-ir
allegiance to the (iovciniuctit i would
seem. Xorcr did they try to pull
down the pillars l thu n-.jmiilir; their
hands have no loyal Moml dripping
from them: they never sioJo tho puLlir
property; they did not use the State
funds to further their wicked scheme-- ol
rebellion; they had no hand in peopling
the national cemeteries of Stoni- River,
Chattanooga, Knosvillc and elsewhere;
they havo no part in the Kn-Klus out
rages which have spread insecurity, ter
ror and death over many counties in the
State during tho last twelve months."
These sound more like the ravings of a
man tortured with tho pricking of a
yuilty conscience, than the reasons f a
Governor for the faitff that is in him.
' The truth is, ho feels that the sentiment
of an enlightened nation condemns the
stringent exclusion from tho ballot-box
of tho best citizens of the State, simply
becauco they arc not Radicals, and
hence ha raves in the manner we havo
quoted. This is the way he meets a
Srcat isfitio, a question of right and
justice. These disfranchised citizens
pay more tlian three-fourth? it has
been estimated that they pay ninc
tcntlis of the taxes collected to support
tho State government, but aro denied any
participation in the control of the govern
ment They are required to porfoim tho
duties of citizens, as paying taxes, serving
on juries, and keeping up tho pnblic high
ways, but are denied tho rights of citi
zens, cad t'ao Governor can only justify this
anomaly in "republican" government
by such insane ravings as would disgrace
a pol-houso politician. Tho Senate of
Tennosseo has just given an .illustration
of tho insincerity of thai kind of Radical- i
ism which finds favor with Gov. Brown-
iow. a resolution was introduced re
citing that Speaker Senter had given aid
and comfort to the rebellion, establishing
tne grave imputation by ,a reference
to facts and dates, and proposing to elect
a new presiding officer, in as much as ho
was disqualified by the fourteenth amend
ment of tho Constitution of tho United
States. That resolution was indefinitely
postponed, one of the strongest argu
ments in favor of ich action being that
the amendment having been ratified after
Mr. Senter had been elected Senator and
then Speaker, it could not by retroaction
apply to him. But an act of tho Legis
lature, which J9 held to be an amendment
of the Stato Constitution, is held to retro-
act so as to exclude about eighty thou
sand white citizens, embracing tho intel
ligent and tax-paying portion of the popu
lation, from the ballot-box or holding
office.. If an amendment of the Con
stitution of the United States, pre
scribing penalties for giving aid and
comfort to tho public enemy, cannot
bo so construed a3 to disqualify
a citizen of Tennessee for an offico to
which ho was elected beforo tho ratifica
tion of that amendment, how.canan act of
tho Legislature, .held to bo an amend-.
mcnt to tho Stato constitution, bo mado
to disfranchise citizens for giving liko
aid and comfort before that "amendment"
was proposed or consummated ? This is
one of tho curiosities of Radicalism which
all the ravings of Gov. Brownlow will
fail to explain. But there is a prospect
that this condition of affairs is approach
ing an end, even should tho Legislature
persist in its refusal to do justice to tho
disfranchised citizens of tho Stato by re
storing to them the rights of which thoy
have been unjustlv deprivod. It seems
to be generally understood that an amend
mcnt to the constitution of the United
States will bo offered in Congress at its
meeting in December, establishing uni
versal suffrage .throughout tho United
States. This amendment is to bo pushed
through Congress, and no doubt is enter
tained that it will be ratified by more
than three-fourths of tho Legislatures of
the States. Should this be done, as now
Bcems probable, it will at onco relievo
tho people of Tennessee from tho des
potism which has ground them as be
twecn tho uppor and nether mill-stones
EETUJJ HAVE A CIVIL SERVICE.
"Let us havo peace" is every body's
motto, and wo will have peace, after a
whilo and after a sort. But desirable as
peace is, there arc other things as much
needed. "Vo want honesty and capacity
in ofl.co. The lack of these qualities in
public officials is tho great evil of the
times. If in tho past ten years, we had
had in tho various departments of tho
public service, men competent, mentally
and morally, to fill them, there would
have been no civil war. Peace and good
government would havo prevailed. Two
thirds of tho membcis of Congress in
both branches, and as largo a proportion
of the Stato Legislatures, aro unfit for
their positions. They lack qualifications,
both natural and acquired. Such fellows
are partisans, greedy always, and corrupt
upon the slightest opportunity. They
got offices by being partisans and nothing
else. Their only hope to retain public
station ia to bo extreme partisans. Out of
their weakness and conscious unfitness is
bred tho corruption of the day.
1 ho better class of citizens do not and
cannot ccmpoto with such men for tho
important offices of tho nation ; and this
evil is growing day by dav. A man of
capacity and refinement docs not desire
an office that a vulgar fool can get more
easily than he. If a change does not soon
take place, men of respectability will re
fuse to havo them. Who wants to go to
Congress after men, who a dozen years
ago would have felt honored to bo Justice
of the Peace, have become distinguished
as tho Hon. Mr. So-and-So, the ablo and
efficient representative. How this thin
is to be remedied it is impossible to see.
Indeed, with the extension of tho suf-
irage it is Iifcely to grow worse. A most
salutary measure, however, has been in
troduced into Congress by Mr. Jencks,
of Rhode Island, which should become a
law. It proposes to havo a standard of
qualification for every appointed officer "n
tho civil service, and a board 1)f exam
mors to apply tho tests. Tho details of
tho bill aro admirable. In its present
stringent shapo, it perhaps could not pa?s
but tho preservation of the forms of the
government will soon require somo step in
that direction. It would be tho greatest
blessing that could befall this county if
somo system could bo adopted that would
put a stop to tho offico -seeking mania.
Out of tho five million or more of voters
in tho lato Presidential election,, tho sue
i ... . . .....
'iui party geumg dui a little moro
than one-half, say 2,750,000 votes it is
safe to say thcro aro 500,000 men who
ospect to get an offico. And it is sa!cr
still to say that not one in a hundred
have any qualifications whatover, and
further that nino-lenths of tho offices
will be filled by the poorest in tho lot.
On this subject, anable contemporarv
Prom all quarters there comes un tho
cry of fraud, Democrats charging Radi
cals and Radicals chareinx Democrats
with election frauds, and the country at
largo incensed at frauds by Federal ofli
cials in almost every department of tho
government connected with tho public
funds. The root of these evils is one and
the same. Men cheat at the ballot box
to get into office, and when thoy get into
office they steal until turned out. The
immense value of the public patronage
prompts election fraud, and tho uncer
tainty ol offico prompts fraud on the
Treasury. To potter away here, as tho
I nion licaguo sages aro doing at an al
legod election fraud, or to potter awav
there, as Mr. Johnson is doing at one
form of fraud in tho revenue, is small
business. Tho axo must be laid at
tho root of tho tree to fell tho
upas. Lopping off a limb here or
thero rather strengthens tho rest than
otherwise. Wo must begin at tho be
ginning, and ihat is to iako the patronage
of the Federal government out of -tho
market, rhc old maxim was, to the
victor bolongs the spoils. Tho now
maxim must be. no spoils. .Tho amount
of tho patronage it is not likely will bo
reduced indeed, fiom tho necessities of
tho growth of the republic, it is likely
oven to augment; but when onco dis
posed of it can be left unchanged. In
stead of a cleaning out of tho depart
ments every four years, just .when the
incumbents aro beginning to learn their
work, and a furious influx in their stead
of ignorant anJ greedy partisans wIicko
onl v claim is that thoy aro partisan, we
need a civil service just as we havo
a military service and a fnaval service
organize I, adaptive, and permanent.
Foreign countries have such oreaniza-
tionsand their loiult has b2ecbund to bo
honesty, efficiency, and as much of econ
omy as is" consistent with effectual oper
ation. Give us a civil service, then, you Con-
gressmen who aro 0 soon to meet. You
ask us to rely on General Grant for
peace, and wo ask you to rely on' Mr.
Jcnckcs's bill, or something like it, for
public honesty. Something must be
dono to put a quietus at onco on election
and revenue frauds and a civil service is
just the thing.
THE BI.ACItnCItIMmOWJfI.OW All-
Gov. Brownlow publishes tho follow
ing card in his paper at Knoxville .
The Blackbdrn-Bkien Disclosure.
For political effect, and prompted by
malice, just before the lato election, tho
Rebel papers of Tennesseo gave a wide
circulation to a ridiculous story brought
out upon a criminal trial in Do Kalb
county, in this State. The story is sub
stantially this : A Mr, Blackburn, a wit
ness beforo tho court, being interrogated
by M. M. Brien, Esq., testified that ho
had an agreement with me to tho effect
that he was to arrest men charged with
crimes and bring them to tho neighbor
hood of Nashville, and I was privately to
pay rum a roward in each case, he di
viding the profits with mo.
Now, it bo happens that the books ot
tho Comptroller and Treasurer show that
I never ordered the payment of a reward
in any caso except when tho parties, had
been regularly advertised by proclama
tion, and in no case was this man, Black
burn, paid any reward. Tho wholo
Story is a fabrication, and I am induced
to contradict it by seeing the story at
tributed to Comptroller Blackburn. Tho
Blackburn who is reported to have mado
tnis statement is ot DeKalb county, and,
in tho lato war, was a member of Stokes'
cavalry. The disclosure is said to havo
been brought out by questions asked tho
witness by M. M. Brien, Esq. Previous
to the holding of that court, M. M. Brien
applied to mo by letter to appoint him
Judge of tho Supreme Court, in lieu of
li. it. Harrison, resigned. Mis applica
tion was followed up by a communica
tion in his Javor and endorsing his quali
fications, reputably endorsod by W. B.
Stokes and others. I thought proper not
to mako tho appointment. Had 1 com
missioned Mr. Briiyi, I havo no doubt
tkoso questions would novcr havo been
asked of Blackburn, and this terrible dis
closuro would never havo como to light
So far as I am concerned, I neither want
the advocacy.or friendship of any man or
set of men who believe mo capable of any
such conduct tas is attributed to mo by
this Blackburn-Bnen revelation.
W. G. Bnow:;r.ow,
Knoxville, Nov. 13, 1868.
This is an explicit denial of a sworn
statement of Col. Blackburn. Tho pub-
lie will bo curious to sec what Blackburn
has to say now. He stated deliberately
under oath, that he and Gov. Brownlow
had a privato arrangement by which ho
was to arrest men charged with crime,
and that Brownlow was to pay him
largo reward, (S500,"we believe, in each
case,) and that thoy wcro to divido this
money. Judgo Brien, Col. Blackburn,
and the Judge beforo whom he testified
aro all Radicals and havo been warm
supporters of tho Brownlow despotism
and when Blackburn mado the state
mcnt under oath as to his privato ar
rangement with Gov.: Brownlow, it very
naturally created a considerable sensa
tion. Col. Blackburn was a pet of th
Radicals, and had been appointed
Colonel in tho "loyal militia" by Gov.
Brownlow, and the public were at a los:
for a motive he could havo in "fabricat
ing" and swearing to a story implicating
the Governor that had befriended him in
a dishonest transaction. This denial Jjy
Brownlow of a sworn statcmcn of one of
his pets, shows the character of men ho
selects to do his dirty work. It is per
fectly legitimate that such men should
turn upon and worry him even worse
than ho had them worry his political op
ponents. It will be seen that Brownlow
attributes these disclosures to the fact
that ho " thought proper not to make tho
.appointment" of Supremo Judge, solicited
by Judge Brien, notwithstanding he was
"reputably endorsed by W. B. Stokes
and others." This is very unkind, not
to say ungrateful, on tho part of Gov.
Brownlow. Ho has had no more faith
ful supporter in his harshest acts of des
potism than Judge Brien. When on tho
bench the Judgo sustained him in every
usurpation. Whatever laws were passed
by tho Governor's parliament wcro en
forced from the bench in tho spirit of tho
Governor's viows. And when Brownlow
was laboring to fasten upon Nashville a
carpet-bag Mayor and other city official
when hi3 "loyal militia," under com
mand of this self-same Col. Blackburn, by
force of arms, ousted the old officials, who
desired to contest the right of the carpet
baggers to the offices under tho
farco called an election, and inducted tho
new claimants into office, Judge Brien
mado hasto to sorve tho Governor by
swearing them in. The officer designated
by tho charter to swear a newly elected
Mayor and members of tho City Council
refuse to do it because tho validity of
their election was questioned audit was
desired to test the matter beforo the
courts. Judgo JBrien knew thoso fact?.
and ho further knew that tho courts wero
open to Mayor Aldon and his City Coup.
cil, and that thoy were not open to tho
party resisting their claim, yet when the
militia in compliance with Governor
Brownlow's wishes, if not his orders,
summarily ousted the old officials, Judge
Brien 'did not question this act of usur
pation, but hastened to swear ia the new
Mayor and his City Council. Wo have
referred to this matter to show with what
alacrity Judge Brien gave tho force of
law tothe behestsof Gov. Brownlow, and
furthcrto show tho ingratitude of tho Gov
ernor fur thoso signal services. Now that
Judge Brien is simply a lawyer, and in
tie practice of his profession draws out
from n witnois, a trusted and honored
supporter of the lirownlow despotism, a
statement most damaging to the rhai ac
tor and (-landing of tho Governor, if true.
he tries to damago tho Judge by telling
tho public that I'rinn had ' applied to
him by letter to appoint him Judge of
tho Supremo Court " and that he had
" thought proper not to make the ap
pointment,'' but had ho "commissioned
Mr. Brien'' ho has " no doubt thoso
questions would never havo been asked
of Blackburn, and this terrible disclosure
would never havo como to li?ht.'' That
i.s saying in a delicate way that if ho (tho
Governor) had bribed Judge Brien with
a seat upon tho Supremo Bonch, ho would
never have pressed. Blackburn to make
the disclosure ho did. We respectfully
rotest against this treatment of a faith
ful servant, for every body in Nashvillo
knows that Judgo Brien has served
Governor Brownlow as faithfully as ever
partisan served a leader.
CoxiTRNixu Judges. A bill has passed

tho .lu'liciary l muinitteo. i ho Demo

Eubmittine thoir election directly to tho

It is a curious incident in tho history
of this Stato that so extensively has Gov
Brownlow disregarded the requirement
of the Constitution that Judge3 shall he
elected by tho qualified voters, that the
matter has elicited the attention of the
Legislature. It is a scathing rebuke of
Gov., Brownlow,- and if he is not lost to
all sense of shame, he must so regard it,
that members of his own party havo
been compelled to remind him of his duty
and to rebuke his usurpations in so pub
lic a manner. Tho offering of tho bill
shows the terrible character of the des
potism that has been inaugurated in Ten
nessee undor tho Brownlow rule.
KILPATIUCU lUIiEOIUEI) AGAIN.
General Kilpatrick seems to takoan
especial delight in misrepresenting South
ern men. Somo weeks ago ho grossly
and wantonly slandered Governor Vance,
of North Carolina, for which that gentle
man publicly branded him as a liar.
General Kilpatrick did not resent or
take any notico of this denunciation.
Subsequently ho indulged his propensity
at tho oxpenseof General Forrest, charg
ing that gallant officer with atrocious
cruelties at Fort Pillow. Tho attention
of General Forrest was called to this
attack upon him by General Shackelford,
of New navcp, Connecticut, where the
falso accusation had been made, and it
drew from him a warm and indigcant
denunciation, in which ho branded
General Kilpatrick as "a black
guard, a liar, a scoundrel, and a poltroon."
Forrest intimated that if Kilpatrick was
the bravo and chivalrous gentleman ho
professed to bo, ho would not rest under
this denunciation, and notified his accuser
that any communication addressed to
Gen. Basil W. Duke, of Louisville, Ky.,
would rcceivo prompt attention. Kil-
Patrick knew what Forrest meant by his
straightforward manner, but ho lacked
tho nervo to meet the man ho bad so
vilely traduced, so ho "authorized Gen.
"Whitakcr, of Hartford, Conn., to write a
whining note to Gen. Shackelford, in
which that gentleman was informed that
"General Kilpatrick has nothing to
communicato either to Forrest or
Basil Duke, except to reiterate his
denunciations of Forrest's unparalleled
atrocities." The skulking fellow would
have stuck his head in a red-hot furnaco
sooner than have faced tho caglo-eyc of
tho "Wizard of tho Saddlo." In his re
ply to Whitakcr's note, Gen. Shackelford
pillories Kirkpatrick as follows :
New IliVEN, Conn., Nov. G, 18CS.
General E. W. Whitakcr, President of
Central Grant Club, Hartford, Ct.
General : Your note of tho 2d inst. in
which you say "in behalf of Goneral
Kilpatrick, that since officers of tho
Lnitcd btatc3 army, who wero present
at tho investigation into the charges
against Forrest, havo not only confirmed
Gen. Kilpatrick's statements on that sub
ject, but havo given additional and more
shocking details," etc., is beforo mo ; and
in reply, I will stato what every intelli
gent man in this country knows to bo
true, that tho so-called "investigation"
to which you allude, was a one-sided
fiadical affair, intended to intensify tho
bitter feeling then existing, both Jorth
and South, and to mako capital in the
then approaching elections.
Tho few soldiers, black and white, who
gave evidence in that farce, misnamed
"investigation," had not recovered from
tho fright they received in the Fort Pil
low fight, and knew nothing of tho fato of
the missing men, who were taken prison
ers and afterwards exchanged hence tho
wily and unscrupulous Chairman of that
so-called " Investigating Committee,''
easily!Clled tho vacuum in their distorted
imaginations, by suggestions which any
shrewd lawyer can make in asking
"leading questions," that thoso missing
men wcro ' slaughtered, nailed to fences
and burned to death," etc.
The exerciso of a little common sense,
sir, would teach any man that wero thero
the least vestigo of truth in any of these
infamous and slanderous charges against
General Forrest, no power on earth could
havo saved him from the fato of Captain
Henry Wirz, and none should know this
font hpllnr trinn fionpral TCilmtriMc liim-
It is a well-known fact that General
Forrest has repeatedly demanded a court
of inquir into those charges, to which
demand tho "powers that be" havo made
Since tho smoke of battlo has cleared
away, tho excitement allayed, and tho
combatants again in friendly communica
tion with each other, tho truth could be
more readily and more accurately ar
rived t than when tne conlusion inci
dent to war was at its zenith. Then why
has he beon refused this inquiry? Aro
tho Radical authorities afraid of the de
velopment of such an inquiry, fairly con
ducted? General Forrest and his friends
deny the truth of thoso charges, and all
liwr inrt ronitr rnnrpdes men innocent
law anu equity coiiceoes men innocent
until proved guilty.
You say "General Ki patrick has noth-
v J " i
ing to do With either iorrest or Hasil
Duke, excent lo reiterato his denuncia-
r-r a. ii i i i -i- i
tions of Forrest's unparalleled atrocities."
If General Kilpatrick is not Utterly lost
to all sense of honor, sir, ho will hold you
responsible for placing him in such an
equivocal position. A distanco cf fivo
hundred miles from General Forrest evi
dently makes the valiant Kilpatrick feel
very bravo. I believo, sir, that distanco
has that influence with all cowards and
bracsarts hence ho "reiterates his de
nunciations. etc." and seems to forget
that ho has been publicly denounced as
"a blackguard, a scoundrel ana a
