time was necessary to afford an opportunity
fur tho smoke of the conflict to clear away,
and for tho people, white and black, to look
around, and adjust themselves to their new
condition and relation. The whites found
but little delay in ascertaining tho duties and
nccc sities resiling upon them, and have pro
ceeded with commendable promptitude to
plnco themselves in a proper attitude before
the country and the world. Their heroic
hearing on the field of action has been
equalled by their wisdom in accepting the
decision of the contest. Quick, impulsive,
fiery and reckless jis the Southern mind was
supposed to lc, it has now gained a charac
ter for wisdom nnd composure in the most
trying circumstances, which to future gen

"Vc this morning present our readers with
extracts from tho Inaugural addresses of tho
(Tovcnors of Georgia and Alabama. These
p gentlemen were elected to their respective
J position by the people of those States; and
their views and opinions represent the people
whfi'.c wishes, embodied into law, they havo
been selected to execute. A few days ago
iwo presented also tho inaugural of tho
Govenor of South Carolina, delivered
tinder thr same circumstances. "We are
pleased to point to them as the highest evi
dence of tho rectitude and good faith of the
Southern jHKiplc. " Tho various Legislatures
arc coming fully up to the standard
marked out by these gentlemen. Tho life
long prejudices of our people, with respect
to sulyects of the greatest moment, are yield
ed gracefully ami faithfully to tho prevail
ing demands. They show not only a will
ingness, but n hearty desire that tho experi
ment of negro freedom shall bo tested full
and fairly to its utmost development. Tho
negro in his turn and progress, will soon find
out who have lieen and arc still his truest
frieiuK He cannot do it at once, but he
will, nevertheless, arrivo at tho truth at
lurt. The tuition in the school of experienco
is rather dear, but it is generally tho best.
Surveying the entire field of tho lato re
Mlitm, "wo find that the people havo con
formed to every condition to a restoration to
tliur former rights and privileges in the
Unie:i, or are proceeding with all readiness
nnd dispatch to finish up the minor details
of the great work. It may be asserted now
with truth, that there is not a disunionist,
capable of exercising any influence in public
niTair.t, pouth of Mnson and Dixon's line.
Tor a time there were a few twelfth-hour
vaporcrs ; but, happily, these havo subsided,
a:id the Southern pcoplo may now bo con
sidered a unit in all matters pertaining to a
speedy restoration of the Union.
Tiio only hospitality to a more perfect
Union must Iks sought beyond the Southern
herders. And tho only cause for delay to
the restoration is found in the ranks of thoc
who pretended, through four difficult years,
to be fighting for what they now jesuitically
oppivc. Hut wo believe and trust that they
will over-reach themselves. There is a
i ont o of justice, a law and constitution
abidinj pciims in the breasts of tho American
leop!e, which has not lecn obliterated
by tho lato conflict, which must and
will assert itself, in spite of tho ef
forts of mere politicians. There never
lias L-jcn a day since the organisation of the
Government, when the South did not con
tribute as much to tho value, the glory and
prosperity of the Union, lotli ii intellectual
and !iyiical power, as any other part of it,
cf equal extent. It is prepared now for the
fame labor, if the people of the 2orth shall
put down their factious demagogues, and
strike hands in subserving a common inter
est and working out a common destiny.
Tho shrewd Northern disunionist, is for
subverting the Uuion by so amending the
Constitution m to exclude a portion of the
Union from any of its Ivnefiu making a
new and different Government, which will
finally bring common misfortunes and ruin.
"While tho republic continues, these schemes
will fall ; for the very primary reasons for

THE VVIIOI.KSAI.r. TRADE OF XASIT.
One of the most gratifying evidences of a
return of ltcao?, is the reinstallation 6f tli
wholesale trade of the City. A ntimbcr of
our inoft cxixjricncctl andreliaWcmerchanls
have, and arc preparing immediately, to rc
Mimc the jobbing bwdnesn. Owingto the
uncertain fortunes of war, the wholesale
trade, moro especially that of dry goods, has
been for three years almost entirely suspend
ed hv the old .Nashville merchants. "What
has lcen done in this line, has been mostly
by person, who, having no particular inter
est in the jiermaiient prosperity of the city,
have sold goods more with a view to prc-
r-ent profit than future reputation
This is now changed. In the line of Dry
Goods, Boots and Shoes, Hate, Drugs, Gro
ceries, tc., wo liavchousca opened and open-
ini by our oldest and most re'iahlc.wholc-
Falc merchants. These gentlemen arc woll
k , t, t aTQ ;nlcrcslcd jn
the growth and prosperity of the city and
State, and will offer' every inducement to
the country merchant to purchase their
stocks in a home market.
There ought to be no question in the minds
of our country friends upon their ability to
obtain goods here as cheaply as anywhere in
the United States. The difference in rents,
transportation and other attending expen
ses, are essentially to the advantage of the
Nashville merchant. By bringing large
quantities of goods through, both in
the matter of original purchase and
in freightage, he has the benefits of
of wholesale buying and wholesale carriage,
vhich would, of themselves cover the usual
profit on jobbing sales. The retailer will
have all the personal expense and the de
lays and annoyances of travel and freight'
age, if he goes lieyond this point. In the
first place, In- will get his goods about as
cheap here as ho will be able to do in cities
further North and East and in the second
place, will Ikj saved the time and expense of
travel, avoid paying higher freights on
small shipments, commissions, and for
warding fees, and escape various other an
noyances, lie will be convenient to his
purchasing market, and be able promptly
to replenish his stock according to his de
mands and sales, and in a great many other
ways subserve 'his own and the interests of
The history of the trade in Nashville in
former years, proved that the merchant from
the interior, purchasing goods here, was able
to compete successfully with his neighbors,
who purchased their goods in markets farther
from home. JIc realized more money him
self, and gave his own customers better satis
faction. In behalf of our merchants in the whole
sale trade in this city, we respectfully ask
our mercantile friends in the interior and
further south, to stop a day or two in Nash
ville when they arc in search of good bar
gains and seasonable goods, and test the truth
of what we have above advanced. "We aro
quite sure they will not be disappointed.

This is one of tho leading Republican
journals of the North, and its editor, Hon.
IIkxiiy J. Raymond, is one of the leading
Republican members of the House. It was
thought sometime since that the Times was
assuming a conservative tone. A few days
before the mctting of Congress it fell back
into its old spirit of radicalism again. "We
regard it as a favorable indication, now, to
find such cditorals in that paper as the one
from which the following extract is
made. It shows, we think, that a divis
ion is- likely to take place in what is
known as the Radical clement of Congress,
which, thus far, has been so overpowering as
to carry everything before it by the mere
decision of tho party caucus:
Tho true policy is to oxpedito rather than delay
tho rendmission of the Southern Representatives
and Senators. It is neither richt nor safo for any
part of tho country to Iceislato fur nnuthcr
part of tho country, without Rivinir it i any
voico in that legislation. Representation is tho
vital principle of republican institutions. Its de
nial to any extent impairs tho normal operation
of our Rovcrmncnt, and opens tho way to all
kinds of abusos. No nno thine is so important ns
to rid the South of that old spirit of sectionalism
which was tho crowth of slaver'. Tho treat ef
fort of true statesmanship now must ho to animate,
the South with n new life, which shall he t horonfth
ly identified with ,tho national lifo, and havo a
eoiiiiiU'to community of spirit with tho North and
tho et. Hut this will ho morally impossiblo
if discriminations nre to bo kept up aeainst tho
South, especially tho oxtremost of all discrimina
tions of not allowing it representation, and
makinc it subject to Inws in tho framing of which
it has had no part. That will, ho suro to becct n
senso of mot criovous oppression, and tho result
would inevitably bo tho intensest hatred, on tho
part of tho Southern pcoplo, of thoo they deemed
their oppressors. To shut thocyes to thisccrtain
ty is to ho blind to American nature Whutover
tho motive, tho act is ono of infatuation.
Tho South is now in its most imprcssihlo stico.
All Southern men aro waiting tosee how Southern
sukmiiion will ho treated by tho North. Of tho
fir nint conciliatory disposition of President
Johnson they aro woll satisfied. Yet ho is but a
silicic man. Of tho spirit of tho Northorn pcoplo
toward them they aro still in doubt. Any un
friendly maiiiftwtation by Northern Senators and
Keprescntatives win no iaKcn as prooi inai me
Vorihirn iipiintn linvo no desire airain to fmter-
niio with them, and mean only to bo their mas
ters. An unmistakably Kcnerous nnd magnani
mous policy by Congress in admitting their Re
presentatives, and burying tho past, would soon
overcomo their last lingering resentment, and cx
putigo tho last trnco of that senso of humiliation,
which cannot exii.t without bitterness. A jealous
and rigorous lino of treatment would, on the
oilier hnnd, soon congeal every hotter impuUo of
tho Southern pcoplo into nn inflexible determina
tion to oppose and thwart tho government in
overv nraclicjihle wny. and would perpetuate tho
spirit of sectionalism in its wont form for years
unit perliaps fenerations.
Some say mat monew loyauy oi mo vtutn is
still very defective tint it consists in profession
mainly, vtocan nanny conceuo tins lo do ex
actly so; but if this Southcru loyalty is yet im
mature, it is the very reason why it should bo en
couraged nnd strengthened. Wo have net a doubt
that tho predominant feeling in tho Northern
heart to-day, tuward tho South, is n yearning for
complete reconciliation. It would hoahlcsscd in
fluence upon tho Southern pcoplo if they could
truly know this. Hut thc; cannot knowit. except
through tho words and actions of Northern Con
gressmen. Let thoso Representatives look well
to it that they do not glvo occasion fur a miscon
ception of tho real spirit of tho North. They
cannot long continue to keep the gates of tho
Capital ban ed against nil Southern representa
tion without producing upon tho Southern mind
a most mischievous impression, that tho North
means notto lo roconcilod, uui 10 dcmineor and
degrade. , ,
What harm can tjouincrr representation op i
Even supposing tho worst, that it would bo dis
affected and factious, it would still form but a
weak minority in either House; and even if made
an alliance with all the Democratio strength, tho
combined forco would still bo loss than two-fifths
of either liody. Tho Thirty-ninth Congress, unon
which devolves the completion of this work of
reconstruction, has a magnificent Union strongth,
which no possible combination of malign ele
ments can hinder from working its own high
will. Let it trust to that strength, and bo fear
lessly generous, bet it admit, at an early day,
into its Imisoiu. all tbo truly accredited Represen
tatives of tho Southern people, so that it shall
havo even-facility to legislato intelligently nnd
justly for tho South, as well as for every other
part 01 Hie laim. uui'viaittvi;

Police Mattkks. The jiolico of our
city have lieen very much embarrassed in
the discharge of tfieir duties hy the inter
ference of negro soldiers, patrolling the city
in dichrrge of their duties as connected
with their own regiment and not the citi
iciis of town or county.
The police were not only not allowed to
arrect a soldier if disorderly, hut they were
interfered with and threatened if Uier
nought to arrest any other negro, csjiccially
if an employee of the government.
From our knowledge of Col. Dewey, com
mander of the regiment, and of Gen. Ila
zen. we arc satisfied that it was not with
their knowledge or connivance that such a
conrso was pursued. The Mayor of our
city, Mr. Keed, with Mr. Todd, one of the
Aldermen, and K. AV. Jnuuary, chief of
Police, called upon Gen. llazcn to ascertain
his views on the matter in question, lie
not only gives full pcnuIsJon to the po
lice to arrest disorderly negroes, citjzens
or soldiers, but will hold to strict accounta
bility those, who under whatever pretext
interfere with the police in the proper dis
charge of their duties. From our knowl
edge of Gen. Haien we expected no less
from him. In conclusion wc beg leave to
My in simple justice to the police of our
city that they deserve great credit for the
manner in which they discharge their du
ties. AVe would hardly exaggerate In say
ing that they constantly risk their lives.

In reference to currency, I must confess I havo
given the subject tod littlo thought to havo any
fixed opinions. Upon ccncral principles, how
ever, I entirely concur with you that any sudden
contraction would bo dangerous. Rut X cannot as
at nrcscnt advised, agree with the Secretary of
Treasury, that any danror ofa rcvulsiou or eol
lapso is to bo feared from, a continuation
of the present volume of currency, how
ever large. Tho disasters to trade and mone
tary affairs havo resulted not from expan
sion, but rrom tnc contractions maao nccra
sary by tho attempt to maintain specie payment
unon loo wido'a basis of paper. Hut no such
necessity now exists unless wo voluntarily under
take it, and thcro need bo no fear of a collapse,"
except in tbo West, ofa forced contraction.
Tho Secretary, in tho interests of capitalists
really, aDccU sympathy for tho poor because of
high prices, however, as if labor could not as well
adjust itself to high as low prices. There arc evils
in thcprcscnt uncertain and unstable value oftho
currency, which it would bo well to remedy if it
were practicable teithout tho (onjcrsofconracioti.
High prices hurt no one, but bondholders and
men of fixed income. What wo want is stability.
Men will soon accommodato themselves to any
thing that is fixed. Thcro is an imperative de
mand for a much larger volume of currency than wc
heretofore used. "Wc have to pay several hundred
millions moro of taxes. The business of tho
country is much enlarged. Other forms of credit
bavo been broken up in a great degree. The em
ployment of negro labor by cash payments and
other causes is not without its influence.
A diminution in tho volume of the currency
would not diminish tho amount of taxes to bo
paid, but make it moro dillicult to pay. Die
bondholder would be profited at the cxpenso. of
tlm taiD.tvcr. So far. it ii easy to see on which
side our intercut lies. My views upon the subject
aro very immature, but 1 confess l am not at
present inclined to favor any great reduction ; if
any, certainly no suuucn reuueuon.

The bistnrv of mankind shows that trreat
jiolitical and social convulsions are followed
by periods of extraordinary intellectual de
velopment. The mental activity stimulated
at such times produces sooner or later great
writers, ioct3, statesmen, philosophers, and
men distinguished for remarkable qualities
in other respects. The effect may not appear
immediately, and sometimes many years or
a generation may pxs.s away before it is ap
parent, but it is seen in tnc enu. xtauumu
character, the spirit or the age, and many
circumstances operate in quickening or re
tarding the intellectual movement thus set
in motion, iust as seed sown in a rich soil,

The internal convulsions of Rome in the

the conseauences of that revolutionary pe

Reasoning from what has happened to

natural consequence of our unprecedented

the American mind has been occupied chief

resources ofa virgin continent, in commerce,
in manufactures, and in the mechanical
arts. In these wc have made wonderful pro

l hem to the necessities of life and the wants
of the age, wc are not behind the foremost
nations of the world, and perhaps wc stand

curred in, by which none are now hindered
from voting or holding office who have been
members of the rebel Congress or of the
btate Government during the late Rebel
lion ; neither are voters required to take the
oath prescribing their support of the Consti
tution of the United States, as also that of
tup Alexandria Legislature, and of repudi
ating tho action ot the feecession Convention
A resolution was introduced looking to
the passage of an acti placing voters upon
a property qualification, and a necessary res
idence in the elate ot two years, and m the
county one ; also, resolutions to provide in
each county negro poor-houses to be sup
porter! ty a tax to uc levied upon even' ne
I Klui alm '"ui. every negro nuw living upon
tlie peninsular in the vecinity of William
l,A . ..
gro, and that every negro now living upon
burg and Yorktown who were not residents
there previous to the war shall bo removed
to their former hemes, counties or States. As
the number settled in this locality is esti
mated at G5,000, and the majority were fol
lowers ot bherman s annv lrom Ueorgiaup,
the task will doubtless prove a herculean
one, and the inauguration ofa series of sim
ilar acts by which this State shall rid her
self of all the negro element.
The Xcw York Tribune assailed the South
ern women. The following is ail extract
from the reply of the Richmond (Va.)
Thoso who have witnessed for the last
four j-cars the heroism with which the South
ern women bore their sufferings and priva
tions, the fortitude of soul displayed by them
that overshadowed the desperate courage of
tho men, the devotion and gentleness, assidu
ous and unwearying, with which they nursed
our sick and wounded, will bear us out in
fayinR they need no defender from slander,
lhat no cu coulll do thcm :llstic0 M
a fair widow, many a sad mother, now lilies
her needle or works the loom in the South
ern home, whoso vountr husband or crallant
boy lies buried on the uloody battle fields of
Virginia. If to know this bo any satisfac
tion to the philosophers and philanthropists
ot the Tribune, they are welcome to the manly
Rut a case more peculiarly illustrating the
character of the ATirtrinia woman, her lofti-
ncss ot soul and nobleness ol heart, came
specially to our notice "but the other day.
She was a plain, unaffected lady, with sweet,
quiet, unaffected manner, no pretension, no
hard, coarse, masculine ways about her.
Her husband was one of a partnership that
had become insolvent. He died, leaving
insufficient effects to satisfy the demands of
his creditors, and his widow, this upright.
honest Southern woman, though her whole
estate had been swept from her bv the war,
was willing and anxious to surrender her
dowor to pay the debts, of the partnership of
Which her husband had been a member.
She wished to pay his just debts, to clear his
name, even though she had to give up her
dower right and be left penniless. It was
only the imperative and indignant remon
strance of her counsel, and by an appeal for
consideration of her little boy, that this ATir
ginia lady could, be prevented from making
such a sacrifice. Such acts as these, and we
ourselves were witness of it, speak for them
selves, and illustrato the character of the
