FRIDAY MORNING. NOV'R. 23; 1866.
The Educational Meeting Last. "Week, K
Pursuant to announcement, a veryJnteli
gent arid appreciative audience of ladies aqd;
"entlemeo assembled a the court bouse on:
Thursday night, 15tb inet., to hear speeches;
from gentlemen who hadi been, previously
invited to address the citizens pn, the sub-,
ject of education-and the erection of -a eoK
lege in Pulaski. . . . .;. '
On Motion, Hon. James McCiit.bf was
called to the Chair, and Calvis Jones and
R. R. Reed were requested to act as Secre-'
taries. "' '" ' ' . " '
Maj. Nath Adams Jthen addressed tbe
meeting in a lengthy speech, afterhis own
peculiarly characteristic and eloquent style,'
holding thY crowd epell boufid by the re'-'
bersal of many ' Interesting" and happy re
miniscences of old Wertemburg; its' rise
and progress,1 its honored teachers,1 1 his
school boy days, his companions who stud
ied and toiled with him over the clasics
within its time-honored walls some" of
whom had fallen amid the din of battle and
carnage others, distinguished statesmen,
and standing at the head of their profes
sions; all, in fact, were of usefulness, and
occupying exalted positions. in jtbe hearts
and affections of all who knew them. His
appropriate and well-timed classic allusions:
the story of AtalaVta. the race for her
hand; his iouches.'.of poetry, '.eloquence,
love, flowers and music, displayed his well
known fondness for literature, the classics,
the beautiful, soft, tender effusions of the
poet, the, soothing and persuasive words of
the orator,' the gentle guahings of love; tha
silent language that the Violet and the rose
speak; the soul-stirring", the soul-inspiring
strains of Orpheus.. His speech was truly
persuasive, and eloquent, and at intervals
was heartily applauded, by the audience. ;
. Evory word he spoke was a syren's note, -
.'To draw the careless hearer." . .
Then his closing appeal for aid in the prose
cution of. this all-important enterprise, was
such as to : arouse every one to a sense of
their duty'.to the interest of .the community
in which we live; to the interest of the ris
ing generation, who are immediately bene
fited by . it;,, to the interest of posterity, to
whom we will bequeath it. . . . !-.,...
J. C. Lester, Esq. .'followed in a speech
frought, with poetical and historical allu
sions, applicable to the subject; arguing tbe
advantages Accruing to, society, to christii
anity, by the prosecution of this important
work; closing with a beautiful eulogy upon
woman, inspired by the bright beaming
eyes of those who honored the occasion
with their presence. . . .Who civilizes,, refines
and christianizes society? Who allured
mankind from' his state of barbarism and
wrought upon him that pure and holy in
fluence that brought the world out of chaos
and moral darkness?
" 'Til Hymen brought his love's delighted hoar,
There dwelt bo joy in Eden's rosy bo er;
. ; t Tba world wtB sad, the garden was a -wild,
. And man, the hermit, sighed 'til woman sraiied."
.' . . - .;t .i
'Tia woman, the great lever of socity, that
has wrought upon the world 'ths blessing.
Without her aid and' smiles of encourage
ment no cause can prosper. ; But when
truly enlisted in the prosecution of an" ob
j ect, they know no such word as fail. Then
let woman's influence be brought to bear;
let her become inlisted in this cause, and
. ere another year passes 'away a beautiful
edifice, an 'istltution of learning, will rear
its proud form upon the site," where now
6tand those 'ruined wails.
" ' And ! last,' but not least of all, was' the
speach of Col. Solon E. Rosa; " He come
down to a more solid and matter-of-fact ar
gument the argument " of ' Greenbacks."
Tis money that we want. Talking Is good
enough'in i 13' place, but' it' takes money to
demolish mountains and fill up vallies.' It
takes money to build railroads," Atlantic
cables, churches and schools. , , He practi
cally demonstrated the fact that money con
tributed to the building of a college in Giles
county was the most profitable .investment
that can be made by, persons owning real
state in the county. Estimation the value
of real estate in the, county, at 2,000,000
immediately Jupon the establishment of a
flourishing school, that property is enhanc
ed in value at least ten per. cent., making
'.clear gain .of .$200,000.. ' He .'sighted in
stances of , the, counties of Jlau,ry, Wilson,
and Ru'iherford,- where such results had
l;een attained, and that in consequeuce of
the schools established at their county 6eats.
And. further, that the county saves $60,-
000 per annum that is now expended, in
.sending children to foreign" schools, and
would be benefitted by an influx of S 100,-
- ml " y
000 per annum. These ara the true re-
1 . r , , . j I -
suits; and' why will people :sUnd m their
'ojtq lightand longer delay to corae forwafd
'with their names, "subscribe liberally; and
put this project on foot and prosecute it to
completion?' It musi be done. - The salva
tion -of the county of Giles depends upon it.
Society demands it, Christianity needs it.
Let Jt be kept before the peoplj. ; Let every
one lend hid or her -nefgy to ehe atuinment
of J-liia good object,, and the rich old county
of Oilee will soon stand second best to none
in the State,: ir point of wealth, inteligence
and refinement." ,;
The meeting adjourned to the first Mon
day in December; - -
Universal Suffrage in Tennessee.
-. The sentiment demonstrrted by the ac
tion of the House yesterday, eays the Ban
ner, of the 20th, is too significant to dis
miss' with a passing notice. In the face of
Brownlow's partisan app'ealsjand Fletcher's
trickery, a bill merely granting negroes the
right of suffrage, ,and. not the"Yigbt to sit
on juries or hold office, .was, tabled on its
first reading with .symptoms of the most
intense antipathy and diffgust, by a vote of
39 to 29; It; must be remembered that
seven Conservatives voted against tabling
the bill on its first reading, out of courtesy
to little ; Tommy; Kerchival who effered it
and regard; for rprecedent, and that several
Radicals who are biiterlyppqsed to negro
suffrage, took tbe same course leaving a
clear margin , of t at least, fifty against any
measure whatever tending to admit the ne
gro to the ballot-box. , , :
Whatever may be the Radical idea as to
the enfranchisement of late "rebels," wool
is certain) but nominally quotable in the
Tennessee Legislature, , nor do we believe
that the policy of either party will tend to
increase its political value for some time to
corne. i -. . i '.
.Never before ia the history of -our legis?
Lit ion has a. bill: been tabled on its first
reading, and it may therefore be inferred
that no measure so distasteful in its nature,
nor so antagonistic to.lhe general sentiment
of our people, baa ever yet-been presented.
We regard the action of the House as final
as' the verdict of both Radicals and Con
servatives against? negro suffrage'. i -Nevertheless,
old Wines says that he will "wig
gle it up again' : Friends of the white
man's government watch !old Wines ha
says he'll 'wiggle it op again.'.!. . -. A,

Whereas, By the Declaration-of Indepeo
dence we . bold , these truths to , be self-evident,
that all men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their' Creator with
certain1 inalienable rights," thai among these
are life'liberty,' and the pursuit of happi.
piness; and v . ;. .--
j , Whereas According to; our theory of a
republican form of government, and for the
more effectual preservation of the liberties
of the whole people, we believe that the only
true bulwark of eivil liberty now consists
in free thought, free speech, a free press,
universal suffrage, and universal amnesty;
Whereas,- In the State of Tennessee there
is not now one armed or hostile, soldier to
the, Government of tbe United States, or tbe
State of Tennessee, but that the'people there
of have quietly yielded obedience to all the
laws of the same," and have become peace
able, law-abiding citizens; therefore, ;.
Be it enacted iby tho General Assembly,
Section 1. That $very;raan of Color, and of
the age of twenty-one years, being a citizen
of the United States, and a citizen of tl e
county wherein be may offer hfs vote six
months previous to the day-o election,
shall be entitled to vote for members of tbe
General Assembly, and all. other civil offi
eers for , the State, county or district in
which he resides provided, however, that
this same shall not be so construed as to
entitle euh person or persons of color to
sit upon? juries, or to hold any office in the
Sec. 2. J3e Jt, further enacted. That. the
law now known as. the franchise law, pass
ed the 3d day oflUy, 1865; be, and' the
same-is hereby repealed, and all other laws
in conflict with this act are hereby repealed.
So, the negropholists grant Sambo the
right of suffrage, but permit him neither to
hold office nor to sit on a; jury.' And this
they call "impartial suffrage!" :
Thb Commercial'. Washington special
says it is. confidently; expected that , the
reconstruction , question will ,be amicably
settled earjy in the approaching session of
Congress. r, ..Negotiations for that, purpose
are in progress between the President and
the leading politicians of, all parties inj the
North and South. . . (. ,. ;
, The basis of settlement, will be uni versal
Suffrage and general amnesty. yThe Presi
dent partially accedes to this proposition,
but he insists upon constitutional grounds
that the question of suffrage properly be
longs to the respective States, and is so far
averse to any action of Congress upon that
subject, that. if assurances can be obtained
from Southern leaders of, the speedy adop
tion , of universal suffrage, the President
will waive . his objection. The proposed
basis of settlement contemplates the aban
donment of the Constitutional Amendment
as a condition to Southern representation,
' The Cotton- Caop. The; Columbia
Herald says: 1 We have very-good reason
to believe that in Maury county there never

times but there never was a season whin

Washington, Nov. 19. The report that
Gen. Grant objected to the reinstatement of
Gen. Sweeney is absolutely false. Gen.
Grant desired Gen. Sweeney to be promot
ed to a higher grade than the one he-formerly
held in the regular army.
The statement made to-day by a number
of leading Representatives, men of the
Union and Democratic parlies, tends to con
firm the previous intimations that have
leaked .out from the recent consultation at
the White Housa, that the Presideat ia on
the verge of a coup d'etat that will gratify
his friends and bewilder his enemies..; It is
safe to conclude, at tbe very least, that there
is an earneet desire on both sides to settle
upon some feasible plan of securing harmo
nious action between Congress and the
Executive. - r J ... . . : y
: ,ilr. Chase's first interview with the
President was merely to give the latter
some opinion on ,; judicial matters. ij ; The
second interview was merely a friendly one,
and Judge Chase took occasion to advise
Mr. Johnson to depart from his present
policy and urge the Southern Legislatures
to. adopt tbe Constitutional Amendment as
a final settlement of present difficulties; tUt
in casa they objected, to the second and
third clauses of the Amendment, to compro
mise by substituting universal amnesty and
Not 'only has 'Judge- Chase urged this
course upon the President, hut so also have
several prominent' men of bis own party;
from both the North "anii the South? O. CI
Clay among the latter.' " Whether these
arguments and the facts !on which they are
based will' change the course of-the Presi
dent remains to be '.seen. hY -: 1 ! -' '
Mr. Johnson has indicated his purpose
relative ; to the amnesty suffrage plan, ' as
mentioned n Friday last.''' The gentlemen
who advocate the proposition represent tbat
the President has given them encourage-:
ment to expect that he will adopt their sug
gestions substantially, if not exactly in the
form' they advise. : - ' "-''- ! '' ; '
'.'Several' newspaper correspondents 'have
endeavored to create doubts of the extstance
of such a combination of leading men for
the purpose lof ' inducing the President to
accept the preposition and advise the South
ern people, as set forfb in my dispatch. In
order to put aPrest such doubts as exist I
will say from my o.wn knowledge that such
a combination does exist. A" number of
gentlemen co-operating in it have had inters
views with Mr. Johnson, and they have
been laboring in the matter for about a
month, visiting and corresponding with in
fluential men of both North and South;

Whrt Does it Mean? The Soutti'is at
this moment in the most profound quiet and"
repose! There is not a rebel in arms; there
ia not a Union soldier necessary to preserve
order in any part of the Southern States:
there absolutely is not a ripple left to show
where the great ship of the Confederacy
sunk and' sunk forever. Yet, at Radical
meetings, tbe proposition to march slaugh
tering, burning and confiscating columns
into this peaceful and unresisting country
is received with uproarious applause. In
the name of humanity, justice, civilization,
what does all this mean?--2?aft. Transcript.
Hon. Reverdy Joiissos has addressed a
note to tbe Memphis Chamber of Commerce,
reiterating the opinion, sometime since
given, tbat the cotton tax is unconstitution
al, and adding, ,"As to the question, it
seerxs to .me to be sq free of difficulty, when
it is well understood, that I 6hall have every
hope of bringing tbe Supreme Court to the
same conclusion if I argus it before them."
. The Police report of the Nash villa Union
and American of the, 21st, contains the fol
lowing: "Maggie Hughes and W. F. Hines, of
Giles county, were arrested for lewdness.
The parties were detected in an-gro hut in
Black, Centre, where they had retired for
the night,, but tie evidence did not go to
sustain the charge of open and notorious
lewdness, and they were discharged.
' "William Brews and' a' man' named
Woods, both from Gile3 county, were ar
rested for gaming in the house of Reuben
Hopkins, in Black Centre.' No' evidence
was adduced of any money being on the

In the month of January, i885,,-Mf7
Prentice, of the Louisville Journal, then on
a visit to his son at Richmond, had an in
terview 'With Mr. Davis, in tbe course of
which the letter expressed the opinion that
if the North continued the prosecution of
the war, it' would 'result most disastrously
to her in the end even if she conquered the
South. In a late. issue of the Journal, he
alludes to this interview, and in rererence
to, the opinion expressed by, Mrr Davis,
'We thought at the, time that Mr. Davis
was greatly . mistaken, and told him so.-
We still trust that we were correct in our
estimate of the character of his opinion, but
just now we can indulge no over, confidence
that we were. . -.' : . r ' .'
"The North may rest assured. that if the;
fight comes it will .be, to them, such a one.
as they have no account pf in either history
or tradition. ' We say to .the'jxepple of ahes
North that a very large proportion ,of them.
have continued to prosecute , the, war, and
tbe South, after .the bravest and most des
perate reeistence known in war's annals,
was conquerred. r. But now comes the
North's Vrials. , Now we are to, see the tests
of her internal, strength. -
..'If. i out of the dreadful war between the
North and tbe touch, a Northern civil war
arises; if Northern armies march, against
each other, vengeance before them, -and
blood and death and desert, behind them.

and sicken, of- the horrid work, and will
