Correspondents will confer a great
favor on us 1y leaving llieir comtuunica
liona for inppection at our leisure. We
have no tinje to hear communications
read over by their authors. We are al
ways glad to hear from any one who has
a fact to impart or a thought to suggest,
and hope to hear often from those who
can contribute to the public information.
We commend this article of tho Con
stitution to those rebels who contend for
IbeBovereiguty of a Stale in all things.

tho publication of an unconditional
Union journal in Nashville, and so far
ns jt, has been possible lor us to have ac
cess to the post-o!licos of Tennessee, it
has been a wonderful triumph, and has
won the hearty approval of the people.
But the mails are at present confined to
a narrow limit, and consequently our
patronage cannot grow rapidly south of
the city of Nashville. Wc therefore
nsk all who feel a desire to have a loyal
newspaper published in thin city one
which will bring to light hundreds of I
crimes and outrages committed by the
rebelM during their nscendancy over us,
and which tho guilty authors believed
would never be brought to lifc,ht to
come up immediately and sustain us,
by sending in subscriptions and adver
tising. It will be of infinite importance
to the Union cause in this State to have
an uncompromising Union journal pub
lished at tho capital of the State. The
task of conducting such a newspaper
will be a most arduous and responsible

Our terms arc for tho Daily Union:
One copy and $7 for clubs of 20

The public, and the Kentucky public
espucially, will read tho following letter
from George N. Sanders, with some
"Lorisvir.Lrc, Ky., Od June, 1801.
" Mil Dear Hir : Tho gun that I spoke
to you about will, 1 think, prove very
successful. It is made of wrought iron.
live-pounder, weighing only .'!20 pounds;
six-pounder will w eigh .VjO pounds ; Im
pounder 700; 20-pouniler 1100; war
ranted to stand tho severest li st. . The
ft vc-pound gun now hire will shoot
point blank one mile and a half, by er
ecting- tho muzzle will carry three miles.
lho 12 and 2 l-pounder, it is expected,
will carry four or live miles. This is
the opinion of the projectors. 1 have
engaged tho inventor and his two boys
to go this week to Nashville to submit to
any test that Gen. Anderson may think
proper to make. I havo assured tlum
that if tho tests should prove satisfac
tory, that Tennessee will make a liberal
contract with them. So well satisfied
am I, (bat 1 have agreed to pay their ex
penses. The gun will be shipped Li-duy
if possible. It is not possible to make
any expel iincnlal shots fore; indeed it
is possible that we may jiot bo able to
scud the gun by rail at all, aud may
have to wagon it through.
(ito.il. c N. Sanm:!'.-.
t tio was thu Louisville t annon-
toakt-i who was making rebil guns?
, Hhat of the Night f
Iieoont everlts must forcibly recall to
the minds of all how contrary to the
expectations of the insurgents has been
the result of that arbitrament of arms
which they were so swift to invoke this
day just one year ago, when Gen. Jeffer
son Davis ordered Gen. Fieauregard for
mally to u"manj the surrender of Fort
Sumler, in full prospect of the hostilities
that must follow gueli a summons. To
morrow wifl be tho anniversary of that
fatal day on which one formerly wearing
the uniform of a ttoldier of the Ilepublic
opened fire upon a recent comrade in
arms from nineteen, bat leifes, which the
f rbearancc of the National Covet imcnt
had permitted to bo built in menaco of
its authority, because, In ronftuon with
the loyal people of these, States, it could
not bring itself to believe that (ho origi
nators of this civil strife would take the
terrible responsibility of rashly exchang
ing the resortsof patience and peaceful
discussion for the short method of the
sword in settling political controversies.
Yet, equally unawed by the l)ivine male
diction which afiirms that they who take
the sword 6hall perish by the sword, and
unrestrained by Fcnfimcnls of loyalty or
national brotherhood, the authors of tho
political situation created by secession
were also the first to take appeal from
the laws of the land to the law of barba
ric force as an clement in human affairs,
and, having challenged the Government
to this dread issue, cannot now shrink
from accepting tho verdict of the wager
Tho military evenfs of the hour, as
they accumulate upon us, seem only more
anil more clearly to bring out that solemn
verdict to the effect that this Union can
never be rent in twain by (ho viohut
hands now lifted against its integrity.
The conviction is deeply impressed on
every reflecting inind in the loyal Slafes,
as it soon must be on every Southern,
that the military trial lias already rc
sullod in tho clear demonstration that
the South cannot make a successful revo
lution by an appeal to arms. The tide of
battle, crimsoned, alas! by the blood of
brothers, who, but for tho alienations of
this unnatural conflict, would be 'brothers
in heart as they are and must be in line
age, rolls swiltly on, .and threatens to
sweep' away at an early day the last ves
tige of armed resistance to the national
authority, at least iu any formidablo
proportions. As is suggested by a con
temporary, wc must expect that reverse
may occur at certain points, but in the
main tho work Vill, in all human proba
bility, go on from success to bucccss.
And this because of the overwhelming
power which the Union has brought to
bear. Instead of the varying fortunes of
nearly equal contestants, if one is so
great and so strong as to present to the
other (he hopelessness of resistance, not
only will this war end, but it will also
end it in a way which is much easier
forgotten by the weaker party than
would be alternate victory and defeat iu
battles. The more rapid our'mililary
successes, the more firm will be the basis
on which to reconstruct the fabric of so
cial and political order in the seceded
States. When farther opposition is seen
to be hopeless on the part of tho armed
insurgeiitsvho now control these States,
the people who have been the deluded
victims of their tyranny and usurpations
may be expected to assert their just and
legitimate supremacy. Aat. Jntt'lliye.itc r.
