GOV. BROWSI.OW IS
Thero was no session of tho Supremo
Court at KnoxTillo this fall because Gov.
Brownlovr would not obey the constitu
tion andlaws by ordering an election to
fill tho existing vacancies in the court.
Ho was urged to make appointments
until Judges could bo elected, that tho
court might bo held, as the interests of
suitors demanded it should be, but this There is therefore something over $350,
ho refused to, because, as it appears, ho 000 of "what is known as tho school
could find no ono but Mr. Horace May-
nard who would " fill tho bill,'' and he is
' ineligible. Thus through he obstinancv I
ot the Governor and his refusal to obey
the laws, tho peoplo of East Tennesseo
have'becn deprived of the usual term of
the Supremo Com t. Now how is it pro-
posed to remedy this evil ? Does tho
Legislature haul up tho Governor and
impeach him for high crimes and mis
demeanors, as certainly would bo
uono it no were a uemocrat.' isot a
bit of it. But a bill is introduced requir
ing elections to be held for judicial offi
cers whero vacancies exist, and then ho
may order elections or not, for it can bo
made no mere explicit and mandatory
r than the constitution and laws now,
which ho took an oath to support and cn
force. A Judge of ono of our courts,
who is a Union man but not a Radical'
did what he conscientiously believed to
be his duty, and for this a partisan Sen'
ate impeached and deposed him from
office, and not content with this declared
him incapable of holding offico in tho
State. Here is a Governor who has acted
in uttor defiance of law touching the fill
ing of judicial offices, and so flagrant has
this contempt for law and duty become,
. that legislators have ljeen compelled to
take notice of it, but becauso he is a
Radical ho is not dealt with as the high
crimes and misdemeanors ho has been
guilty of demand ho should be. This is
tho spirit in which tho members of the
Legislature meet a grave and important
matter. A Radical can disregard law and
duty with impunity, but if an officer who
is not a Radical, in tho discharge of a
sworn duly, runs counter to Radical be
hests, ho is deposed ajj degraded by a
partisan Senate, so far as such an act of
flagrant injustice can degrade an honor
able man. This is what Radical rule in
THE ltEVEXUE EA1VH PUOTECriOX
TO HOME IXTEKEST.S.
One of the most stupid and short
sighted features of the revenue laws of
this State is the onerous two-per-ccnt
tax on merchandising. Inserted it a
time when commerce was just rising from
tho destruction of the civil war, and
when thero was absolutely no State
treasury, for the purpose of assisting in
laying a foundation for a fund for the or
dinary current expenses of the State gov
ernment, it was even then unwise. Its
tendency and actual operation is to
cripplo the mercantile interests of tho
chief cities to that degree, that less rcve
nue is derived from them, than if tho
tax wcro reduced to tho rato existing bo-
foro the war. This has been demon
straled limo and again, by committees
who have presented tho figures in proof;
and offered cogent and unanswerable
arguments showing that tho exac
tion of this heavy tax drives capi
tal from mercantile investment in
Tennessee to other States ; and permits
a competition between tho home mcr
chant and the samplo seller from other
cities very much to tho prejudice of tho
former. There is no sense or justice in
the two per cent tax. It defeats its own
object, and lends to injure ono of tho
most necessary and indispensable occu
palions of the citizen. Wo trust tho pres
ent session of tho Legislature will at once
repeal or modify this tax in accordance
with tho principles of wise legislation and
the dictates of ordinary business sense.
Thero has never been an argument worth
a baubco adduced in its favor; and tho
prcjudico which would seek by such a
stringent provision to shift tho burden of
taxation from the country to cities,-is un
worthy of enlightened legislators and
pitiful to the last degree.
Tho whole revenue code needs over
hauling 'with tho view of equalizing
the taxes, and adjusting them with ono
object tho protection of home interests
and tho preservation of capital in tho
Stato. In writing this paragragh, one
other item besides the two per cent, tax
suggests amendment. Tho insurance
business of every kind conducted by
citizens of tho Stato should bo fostered,
and so far favored, as to enable it to com
pete with tho mammoth companies which
do business through agencies. Tho
amount of money taken from tho Slate
through this latter source is enormous.
It should bo retained at home, and the
conditions imposed on tho business
should as far as equitably they can be
made to do so, look to tho encouragement
of tho insurance interests properly be
longing to the Slate.
It is proposed to increase the salary of
tho President from S2.,00(J to $100,000
per annum. Tlii i wronr. ScveTal
speciousargnments, however, an-adduced
in its favor; such as the great cxpenso
attached to tho stylo of living the in
cumbent is expected to maintain, and
that thoprcsent salary was fised seventy
llvo or eighty years ago, when the cost
of living was very different, etc, etc.
But in reply it may bo sail, that a
President can live reputably for himself
and the nat'um on twenty-five thousand
dollars, and tho country needs the re
trenchment f every dollar of expense.
Besides wo arc imperial enough already in
essentials, and can dispense win tho
magnificence of a Presidential Court, afr
least until we can see our way a little
clearer out of debt and taxation.
It is stated that at the funoral ceremon
ies of Ex-Governor Ford of Ohio, which
wore held at his residence in Youngstown.
Ohio, tho Rev. Samuel Maxwell, of St.

2iropriatc addresses were delivered
by Gov. Hayes, Hon. J. A. Garfield
and Hon. Samuel Galloicay. What
kind of addresses from non-clerical gen
tlemengovernors and politicians
could bo appropriate on such an occasion,
wo arc at a loss to imagine. A funeral
and burial is ono thing, and a meeting of
friends to eulogize and testify to tho ex
cellencies of tho deceased, is another,
and has been heretofore considcred.quito
a different thing. It is to bo hoped tho

TIIK SACKED SCHOOL FUND A PKIt
Tho report of the Joint Committee on
the condition of the StatcTrcasnry, sub
mitted to tho Legislature a few days
ago, shows that tho Treasurer "received
from S. W. Hatchett, former Comptroller,
on account of what is known as the school
fund, S29S.022 72, of which $50,000 is in
United Slates securities." "Wo nresumo
this is the amount that was got from tho
Tennessee National Bank at Memphis on
account of tho "school fund,'' amounting
to about S650.0O0, loaned to that institu
tion by a former Treasurer, under a law
passed expressly to enable him to place
that fund in the custody of that bank
fund," deposited in tho Tennessee Na
lional Bank unaccounted for. What is
the condition of this unaccounted for
fn has never been mado public, al
though an investigation of tho matter
was made by order of tho Legislature
T10 wllole transaction of depositing
the fund in the Tennesseo National Bank
and tho loss of tho largest portion of it,
was inquired into by a committco of tho
Legislature, but the conclusions at which
that committco arrived havo been kept
from tho public. Thero have been thrown
out significant hints ol a great deal of
rascality covered up in tho transaction,
which involves sg many persons occupy
ing prominent positions, that it was found
necessary to suppress tho fads brought to
light by tho committee. How this is, is
of courso only a matter of conjecture, but
it is not croditablo lo tho party in power
that this transaction should have been
covered up in the manner it has been
Why does not tho present Legislature
ventilate this transaction? Do they fear
tho consequences to tho party? Another
important fact is devoloped by this re
port of tho committee. They stale
that $23S,070 of this "school fund'
1 was used in payment of interest on
tho Slate debt, and the amount so used
is in coupons of tho bonds of tho State.'
Wo havo repeatedly charged that tho
fund was used as stated by the commit
tec, and now tho proof has been brought
to light. It has been more than a year
sinco thiu fund was so used, and the cou
pons rodecmed with it have lain in th
Comptroller's offico, not yielding one cent
of interest or of tho least possible benefit
to the children of the State. Hero is tho
proof that the Governor permitted, if ho
did not actually order, tho use of this
"sacred" fund for a purpose it never was
intended. Instead of rigidly holding this
fund to bo used for the benefit of tho
children of the Stato, it has been applied
to tho payment of interest, and all that is
left are a few worthless coupons.
Why has tho trovcrnor been so
reticent on this point ? Why has h
not told tho peoplo what had be-
como of tho fund set apart for school
purposes? Is -it not because he would
thus convict himself of insincerity, when
in one of his messages he wrote so pa
thetically of tho sacred character ol that
fund and of the great need of education
under which the children of tho State
labored? The hypocrisy of this sort of
cant would thus be exposed, and he pre
fcrred not to tell the peoplo that ho had
been guilty of so flagrant a violation
tho trust reposed in him.
THE l'OWEHS OP CONUKESS AMI
Or THE PItESIDEXr.
Tho Radicals are beginning to see that
Uicir nc Is of usurpation in depriving tho
President of his constitutional power?,
may return to plaguo the inventors. It
s interesting to witness the changed tono
in which they discuss the duties and
powers of Congress and of tho President,
now that they have succeeded in electing
Gen. Grant. It is remarkable that so
soon after the result of the election is
known, they discover that the President
has great powers under tho constitution!
and that as the head of a co-ordinato
branch of the government, he is not
subject to the control of Congress, and
that Congress is not tho supremo power
in this country. This is advancing quito
rapidly, considering that these same Radi
cals havo hedged round President John
son with one Ir.w after another, until
they have completely denuded him of
every power conferred upon him to enablo
him to protect the peoplo and enforce tho
laws. President Johnson is powerless to
remove a corrupt official from any depart
ment of the government. He may
suspend for malfeasance in office, but
tho Senate may restore such officer,
as it has done. These laws will
place Gen. Grant when he bo
comes President in a very awkward
position, and ihoso who clamored loudest
for tho laws which practically struck
President Johnson down, aro now ear
nest in demanding that the future Presi
dent be left freo to act as tho constitu
tion intended ho should. The Boston
Traveller is one of tho Radi:aJ journals
that ha3 softened down very materially
on this question of tho relative powers
of Congress and tho .President. That
journal declares that tho President is
not a nonentity, " but an officer who is
clothed with great power3, and who is as
independent of Congress as that body is
of him." This U an assumption that
could not havo been extorted from a
Radical journal six months ago. vet it ii
no more a fact to-day than it was then,
but it is simply an illustration of how
success will open tho eyes of partisans.
Tho 'Traveller refers to a well known
incident in tho history of Washington's
administration, in support of tho position
that a Prcsidont can carry through
measures to which Congress is opposed,
and which aro not liked by tho country,
a thing lhat was done by Washington,
but could not Co dono by Johnson
under the same constitution. Presid
dent Washington carried through
the British treaty negotiated by Mr.
Jay, though it was perhaps tho
most unpopular measure that was ever
presented to tho American people when
it was first published. When this treaty
wa3 pending beforo Congress, the House
of Representatives requested of the Pre
sident copies of the instructions to Mr.
Jay, and tho correspondence and other
papers that related to tho treaty, by a
vote of 02 to 37; but Washington refused
to comply with the request of the House.
Tho voto in Committee of the Whole on
the resolution in favor of the treaty was
a'tie 19 to 49 and it was carried only
by the casting vote of tho chairman,
who voted against tho party : and it
finally passed tho House by a vote
of 51 to 4S. It was tho power of
tho Proidcnt that pushed tho treaty
through in tho faco of the hostility of a
majority of tho Houso of Representa
tives. If it bo correct to say that tho
President is "nothing but an officer to
execute the will of Congress, Washing
ton should have furnished tho papers
asked for by tho House of Representa
tives; and when, ho saw how avcrso tho
Republicans were to tho treaty ho should
havo withdrawn it. But Washington,
who had presided over tho labors of tho
convention that made tho national con
stitution, flatly told tho Houso that it had
nothing to do with the making of trea
ties, and that ho would not comply with
ils request, which, it should ho added,
was very liko a demand, and had been
made by so large a majority of the Rep
resentatives that it was only four short of
wo-lhirds of tho members who voted,
Tho Traveller, commenting on this inci
dent, asks very pointedly: "If Washington
was right in resisting tho House of Re
presentatives in 1790, is it not going too
far inlSGS, to talk as if tho President of
tho United States was a sort of consta
ble, wlio can act only by orders of a
court called Congress, and who is to reign
for four years only on condition that he
nlinll nn.vpr attomnt to rule?" The
Traveller adds: "President Jackson ex'
ercised tho veto power on many impor
tant occasions, and with success, and ho
was sustained by tho people. If tho new
doctrine is sound, ho was a usurper, and
should havo been impeached; but ho
was nothing of tho kind, for ho never
went beyond tho constitution, finding
in that instrument araplo warrant for all
lhat ho did. A diffcrenco of opinion may
exist as to tho wisdom of his action on
somo occasions, but thero can bo no doubt
that ho had acted on all thoso occasions
with strict regard to his oath. Ho was
an honest man, and as incapable of vio
lating tho constitution as ho was or he
having in a cowardly manner." This
defense of Gen. Jackson sounds rather
strangely from a journal that has hereto
fore justified the courso that tho present
Congress has pursued toward President
Johnson. Tho argument or tho Travel
ler against tho usurpation of power by
CongressJs as strong and emphatic now,
since thero is a probability that tho De
mocrats may control tho Houso of Rep
resentatives during tho second half of
Grant's administration, as were the argu
ments of tho Democrats when tho
President was being deprived of
his power by an unscrupulous Radical
majority in tho Houso of Representa
fives. Wo givo this Radical protest
against this usurpation, for such it is, that
tho reader may understand upon what
ground tho restoralion-of tho presidential
offico to its power and dignity is mado in
Tiew of tho fact that it i3 to be occupied
Kr- n man elected by the Radicals. Tho
Traveller says :
"There is ono point in connection with
this subject that ought to bo duly con
sidered before men agree to the position
that tho President must obey Congress,
and havo no opinions that shall not be
accoptablo to that august body. If ho is
to take law from Congress, ho must do so
under all political conditions. If ho is to
submit to a Republican Congress, ho
must also submit to a Democratic Con
gress; and the last House of Representa
tives of President Grant's first term may
contain a Democratic majority. The next
House of Representatives will contain a
Republican majority, but its successor
may bo placed under Democratic control.
Shoud tho Democrats gain in 1S70-71 as
many Representatives in proportion as
they have gained or will gain in 1S6S-09,
the Houso must bo theirs. Then tho
reconstruction of Virginia, Mississippi
and Texas, will bo very favorable in tho
way of increasing their Congressional
strength. Now, suppose tho House of
Representatives that will come into exist
ence in 1871 should contain a Democratic
majority, must President Grant bow
down before it, and prepare to execute its
decrees, whether he shall believe them
to bo wise or foolish, constitutional or
unconstitutional, legal or illegal? If
such should not be his duty, what bo
comes of tho assertion that Congress rules
the country ? No man can havo tho faco
to say that, whilo the President is bound
to obey Congress when his own party
control it, ho i3 not bound to obey it
when it is controlled by his political foes.
That would bo to assume that our gov
ernment exists for parties, and not for

power of tho State, it is so without re-1
card to its party character; and if.
a Republican Congress can command
the President, and direct him to do
or to leavo undone certain matters, a
Democratic Congress can pursue thosamo
course, and compel him to he its tool in
reversing the work of its immediate pre
decessor. Wo must tako the Congress
governing position with all its conse
quences, if wo tako it at all; and to assume
that Congress will always co.itain a Re
publican majority, would bo an assump
tion worthy of Bedlam, and is not to be
thought of by sober-minded men. Wo
hopo it will bo in tho power of tho Re
publicans ever to maintain ascendency in
the national legislature, but as it is pos
sible that they may lose it, they should
not commit themselves to a position, tho
logical consequences of which are at war
with their purpose and the practical
consequences of which might prolong tho
present state of things almost indefinitely.
While making a wise uso of present
power, wo should not insist upon a doc
trino that might in a couple of years
transfer power to tho hands of tho
"Tho President is not tho tool of Con
gress. He is a great and freo magistrate ;
and if ho be a wise and popular man, he
can do anything that is constitutional,
whether Congress like it or not, though
he may not bo able to do it at once, but
mast wait for tho decision of tho peoplo
when ho or Congress mako an appeal to
them. President Jackson was a great,
a wise and a popular man, and tho people
supported him when ho vetoed tho bill
to create a third natienal bank, as it
had previously supported his veto of an
internal improvement bill ; and as it sub
scqucntlv supported him when ho so
boldlv removed the nation's money from
the national bank. President Johnson w
neither great nor wiso nor popular, and
when he assumed tit vctoing-pen tha
sword of Kcandcrbjg in tho hand? of a
boy tho people would not support him,
but clothed Congress with such power as
cnabloi it to veto tho vetoer, again and
ajain. But tho contest was not a
contest between the President and
Congress it was a contest between tho
people and the President, and Congress
was nothing more than ono of tho ma
chines, and tho chief machine, used by
tho peoplo to give effect to their will.
Let us havo another great and wiso and
popular President such an ono as Gen.
Grant will prove lo be and should
there, unfortunately, occur a contest be
tween him and Congress, tho people
would sido with him, as thoy sided with
President Jackson. Between tho next
Congress and President Grant no contest
can arise ; and, that ho may not bo dic
tated to bv a Democratic Congress, or
Hoii'c of Representatives, shonld such a
body as-cmblo during his Presidency,
let us not commit ourselves to the posi
tion of Congressional omnipotence, a po"
