TIIUK8DAY. JULY 4, 1807.
Largest Circnlatioii in City and State.
ADBUESS QF Tin; EXECUTIVE COJI
MITTI3E OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE.
Feltjow-Citizeks: The crisis now upon
its in more important than any, except
perhaps one, which has ever arisen in the
hiMory of our State. To glance only at
the past, our people remember, what is not
'frilly appreciated " by the outsfile world,
how ardently they were devoted to the
Union and the constitution ; and tinder
what circumstances of revolutionary con
fusion they were led and forced into the
late unhappy rebellion. With little asj
surance of protection from the general gov
ernment, and overwhelmed by the power
of a revolution originating in more South'
ern States, the Stale of Tennessee yielded
late, and only in part, and that after strong
resistance, to the dominion of a govern.
mnt which suocesflfuly excluded the
power of the Union, and held undivided
sway over the entire commonwealth from
the spring of 1861 to that of 1802, nearly
an entire year. The power of the general
government to euppresfl the rebellion and
preserve the Union was during most of the
war doubted by even its friends; and its
success was regarded by its enemies and
by lookers-on as utterly improbable.
Under these circumstances the mass of
our loyal people at first acquiesced in what
they considered inevitable; and from this
by an easy step they were led into partici
pation in, and sy npathy with, the unfor
tunate struggle. The inevitable circum
stances of civil war tended also to alienate
the feelings of the people from a govern
ment whose army traversed and destroyed
their country. This is the "great crime"
of which our people are held guilty, by
which Radicalism says they "have ac
quired the legal right to be hanged and the
divine right to be damned." But we
know, fellow-citizens, that though many
of you fought gallantly, with naked, bleed
ing feet, and unclad, shivering limb, in the
service of a cause which you had learned
to regard as holy; yet, when overpowered
by numbers and subdued by want, you laid
down your arms and returned penniless to
your desolated and impoverished homes,
you surrendered in good faith. You were
ready to return to your allegiance to the
government of the Union. You have since
acted in good faith. A more quiet and
orderly people, at the end of a long and
civil war' was never seen on the face of the
earth. You have been met in bad faith.
Yqpr disfranchisement hasbeen made more
ment in this State has been made the most
infamous that ever disgraced a statute book
in America, as toward you who participated
in the rebellion, and all who ever syrapar
thized with you. And yet, in the admin
istration of that law, the law itself is daily
violated, and its provisions wrested to your
disparagement, and to defeat your few re
mainingrights under its provisions.
We say this, fellow-citizens of Tennes
see, not to discourage you. We would
arouse you to ono more eflbrt the first
effort which you have had the opportunity
to make to regain your lost liberties.
Under the first franchise law which the
Radical minority passed, they were beaten,
though the Radical party carried at (hat
time not a tithe of the infamy on their
shoulders which now bears them down.
The jiossed anether ; but under it found
their success but partial and unreliable,
auguring certain defeat in the future. A
third infamy was enacted, by which thev
hope to succeed. Is their success certain
under this new law ? Why should you
think there ia no chance ? This new law is
but an experiment an untried experi
ment. Fearing themselves that it would
not succeed,, the Radicals passed another
and fourth act of infamy, more bare-faced
than any which had preceded it. The
Legislature assumed to perform the judi
cial function of declaring v"oid the regis
tration of-the single county of Davidson
" the registration heretofore had, under the
franchise law passed June 3, 18GC," so that
the work might be done again by an ap
pointee of Brownlow. Another section of
the bill extends the " provisions of this
ant to any otfier county in the State," etc.,
at the discretion of the Governor. This
act of infamy confers no power on the
GovernQr to set aide any registration any
where but such as had been had before
the passage of the act, and under
the law of May 3d, 1806 ; but no con
sideration of conscience or of law will
deter the incumbent of the State
capitol from doing an unlawful thing. The
power is seemingly placed in his bunds to
enforce his'saked will a law; 'but we are
not discouraged for all this. Brownlow
cannot, with all this machinery of tyranny
in his hands, hold and keep in meek sub
jection the will of a million of free people.
If you will arouse to the contest, and go
forth to shake yourselves, the chords which
bind your limbs will be parted asunder "as
a thread of tow is broken when t toutcheth
the fire." Ysh can win this contest If you
will aromete work. Our people have been
long used to be free, and when they awake
from the slumber into which their wearied
energies have fnllen, the clamor of their
indignation will be like the voice of many
waters. The danger is, fellow-cltiiens,
that yo will too long delay your
action, and then yotir vengeance will
not stop short of unlawful excess.
For lea tyranny than this we see have
kings lost their heads. Bnt we would
have yosir energies tempered with medera
tiou. We feel no fear from the vaunting
threats of military or militia ooercioti
daily thrown out by plttfiil pol
troons, who judge ytwr natnre by .their
own cowardly instincts. The government
of the nation is not going t Interfere to re
strain the lawful efibrts of our people to re
gat their freedom. The tnwple of Ten
nefH, Air the sake of peace, have now
pieced thvuMelvea lipon the broad platform
of Hniverttal suffrage and ninversel eqnaljty
before the law. The jniblic opinion of the
nation wwild ust tolerate ft'n onteide inter

a determined people. They did, Indeed)

culminated in a cruel and cold-blooded

murder. But when they presently beheld
Ihe gathering wrath of a people "cast down
but not destroyed," they slunk away into a
cowering quietude. Governor Brownlow)
cannot raise his eight thousand militia.
There are not so many outlaws in the State,
at his service. lie and his Legislature and
other officials have so bankrupted the State,
treasury, that he has no money to pay or
provision Buch a force. But in fact he
dares not raise them till after the election.
The good sense and better feelings of even;
a portion" oD hbj own jipporter is already
so greatly shocked at tile barbarities of his
militia, that he will not likely dare to in
crease their numTmy tven if it fdiould lie
within his power. The people look upon,
thee outrages more in anger than in fear.
But, if the full quota of eigli thousand
outlawdgWerequarteral upon this once free
people, we sliouidl "he unworthyVur formerj
jipnortpjpermit them to control the'iresnlt
of the coming election. One hundred and
fifty thousand men aroused to struggle for
their liberties, and unused to submit to
oppression, cannot be held in subjugation
by such a force.
Notwithstanding the wicked machina
tions of those who have organized "loyal
leagues" throughout the State, the colored
people can be induced to vote the Conser
vative ticket, if the maas of the people wilf
interest themselves actively to instruct
them as to their duty and interest in this
regard. They will readily understand
that the "leagues" wiil not support
them, and that the Radicals will not be
able or willing to give them employment at
wages, or to feed and clothe them, and give
them shelter. They may soon be taught
that their interest lies in living in harmony
with the white people in their midst.
Much has been done already in that way,
wherever the effort has been made, and
there can be no doubt of success if our
people will make but half the effort the
Importance of the case calls for.
In this trial, fellow-citizens, let us act
like men. Let us not forget our former
freedom. Let us not so soon forget onr.
former honor. It was a grave error to
break down the barriers of the constitution
erected by the wisdom of .our fathers,
which stood between the people and the
arbitrary power of those who would op
prew them. Many of you participated in
that error. And now, when you 6ee some
of us who have not been compromised by
the untoward events of the last four years,
straining every nerve in the effort
to restore to you. your dearest
rights, will you lie idle, with
your arms folded, submissive to the hateful
domination of the oppressor? In memory
of the past, let it not be so ! If each one
of you who i3 disfranchised will use every
exertion to secure one vote for the Con
servaive ticket, of course the result cannot
bedonbtful. If each one of you will make
.the effort,. the result, is certain. ,Many of
you ran secure many votes. Win all the
votes in your power. Induce those within
your influence to withdraw from their
treasonable leagues. If they continue in
such associations it must work their ruin.
We owe it to these poor people, who were
once our servants, to rescue them from the
wiles of the unprincipled adventurers who
arc now seeking to ruin the colored man
for their own selfish purposes.
No time is to be lost. Perfect your or
ganizations in every neighborhood. Have
your barbecues and public speakings, but
afiove all things, see that the right voters
be registered, and that they vote, and vote
right, on election day. Obey the laws,
unjust and oppressive as they are; and see
that your opponents obey them. Go to the
polls on election day, and see that elec
tions are held; and tmtch that they are held
fairly, and ihe result reported truly. Let
those who cast a vote to continue the en
slavement of their fellow-citizens, be noted;
and let them know that hereafter they
shall "be to you as heathen men and pub
licans." Where the issues between politi
cal parties involve only reasonable differ
ences of opinion, we condemn proscrip
tion for opinion sake; but Radicalism has
branded you as infamous, as on a
par with him who has been convicted
of robbery, or theft, or burglary, or arson.
He who votes to 'sustain Radicalism, casts
a stigma upon your honor; and has no
right to expect any thing else than your
honest and honorable enmity and indig
nation. Within the last few days, a correspond
ence has been published, between two
agents of the Freedraan's Bureau, the in
tention of which ia to intimidate you in the
exercise Of your last remaining right, to
employ whom you please to labor on your
farms, or in your workshops to require
you to feed, and clothe, am! shelter the
man who will vote to deprive yon of your
inalienable rights, to strip you of your
liberty and property.' You are not suffi
ciently humbled even yet, to tremble at the
petty threats of insolent officials and venal
editors, The man who votes the Radical
ticket in this election, votes that you shall
never be allowed to vote votes that you
shall be taxed without representation
ground down with taxation as only
the unrepresented can be taxed. He
votes to continue over you a mer
cenary militia of outlaws, who
search your houses without warrant, seize
your property and appropriate it to their
own use, insult your wives and daughters,
' and murder unoffending citizens with cir-

sustain the party in your midst which in

North to take possession of your estates and
confiscate the same without the least regard
to yonr lawful rights and in" violation of
the plighted faith of the nation. And,
fsllow-cllifen?, if this aeheme of oonfisaa
tion, so much desired by those who think
"the late war ended too soon," should
be put in force, we can tell you now
whose property will be taken. It will be
the property of those who have it. This
faotien cares, not for loyalty or disloyalty.
The man who has whereof to take a spoil,
will be to them' fliaioyal. Wti hardly

trarv will. The man who votes the Radical
ticket at the coming election, votes in favor
I cf. or to give sanction and countenance to,
these acta of tyranny apd oppression, un
equaled in the annals of civilization. And
yet the insolent minions of tyranny threaten
you, tliat unless Vou continue to patronize

that the war is over; and not till the war
is resumed again will military assessments
come in use again among us.
On the first day of the present month,
the Governor, who now seeks his reelec-1
tion by all manner of unlawful and unfair
means, issued hi? proclamation, which most
of you have seen with indignation. In this
Gubernatorial proclamation the dictator
boldly assumes to the Executive depart
ment,,fromjwhicli4tha constitution lias ex
pressly williheld that function, the authori
ty to declare, construe and expound the'
law. Ho utters .his opinion like the re
script of a Roman Emperor, and arro
gantly threatens the Judges of the County
Courts with punishment if they shall
presume to perform those judicial
and ministerial functions conferred
upon them by the constitution and
laws. The law shall be according to hfs
interpretation, and vengeance shall fall on
the heads of those who disobey. He, the
Governor, ia a candidate for re-election.
He has the power to appoint the commis
sioners of registration in all the counties,
and assumes the right to change them at
pleasure. His commissioners so appointed
by,the one man power, shall appoint the
judges to hold the election, and all other
officers thereof. Under our laws a sheriff
is not permitted to hold an election where
in he himself is a candidate ; and common
decency would debar any but the most
.shameless from exercising a controlling in
fluence over his own election. But, there
seems to be no infamy of degration to which
the present rulers of Tennessee will not
In 'reference to this matter, fellow-citi-zens,
we 'advise moderation and
obedience to the mandate of the op
pressor, that he may be left without excuse
before the nation, when he finds himself
beaten on his own ground by the indig
nant voice of a people determined to be
rid of him. If the disfranchised nnd op
pressed masses will arouse to the effort,
though only the colored men of the State
were enfranchised, they will not vote for
Brownlow or his party. Ir countfes where
the courts have appointed Judges, and
where the commissioners have done the
same, let the appointees of the latter hold
the election, but let the lawfully appointed
Judges attend to watch the manner of its
holding. Let these, or if they will not
serve in that capacity, let others appointed
for the purpose, sit by" and Pee that the bal
lot-boxes are not stuffed, and that the re
turns are made correctly. Let the ballot
box be eve?y where protected from unlaw
ful violence and fraud. The unarmed and
sober people can do this if they will, and
no small bands of the tyrant's armed mili
tia can prevent it.
Can you not, fellow-citizens, enfranchised
and disfranchised, make this one effort to
regain your liberties? BrownIbwand his
men seek tq,prpvoke yotito commit some
act of violence. Be not entrapped into
that error. Protect yourselves from vio
lence, but commit none. Do not permit
the voters, white or colored, to be intimi
dated by outlaws. Commit no frauds
yourselves, and permit none to be committed
by them. Brownlow hopes to be kept in
power only by the aid of the general gov
ernment, through its Congressional major
