Wise did not swerve from hia pur

A correspondent at Tullahoma has
furnished U3 with the above circular, is
sued by Bvt Brig. Gen. Kill. Dud
ley, commanding forcos at that place.
We wish every officer in the service
would follow the example of General
Dudley. From the annoxed letter it
will be seen that a large assemblage of
the citizens of the town met at Post
Headquarters; and the greatest gf alifis

who have been for four years deprived
of the 3jdv-antagea of schools for their
ICorrespondonco of the Nashville Unioa.
TrLLAHOHA, Tenn., May 17, 1865.
Feeling that many of your readers
may be interested in the Btate of affairs
in the once beautiful village of Tulla
homa, I am induced to writo you, enclo
sing a copy of a circular recently issued
by the Post Commander. .
Though it has not for som,e.time been
the theatre of actual war, our littio
town still shows that it has suffered
grievously by its ravages. Nearly all
of our good buildings have been de
stroyed, not even the churches being
spared ; and until- very recently schools
have been among the things that wore.
Now that the war appears to he nearly
or quite over, our citizens are desirous
of re-establishing those means of dis
seminating knowledge so essential to
the well being of every community.
In the absence of all civil authority,
wo are fortunate in having as com
mander of the post, an officer who is
prompt to observe these necessities and
willing to assist in providing for them.
During the brief period that Gen. Dud
ley has been in command he has erected
a school building for tho use of the,col
ored children of the post, where a
school is already in operation under
.the auspices of tho Christian Commis
sion, with an attendance of sixty pu
pils. He is also constructing a place of
worship for the same 'class of our pop
ulation. The 'labor ha3 been mostly
performed by prisoners awaiting trial
lor various offences, who, otherwise,
would have been idle and unoccupied.
The same elas3 of persons have been
used for policing the town and working
upon the streets, which have been very
much improved in appearance.
The movement toward establishing a
'Free School for 'the -white children,
made known in the circular referred,
to; was warmly welcomed by our cifi-
zens, wno waited upon, tao u-enerat a
his" head quarters; expressing, their grat
ification at ths interest taken in their
welfare by a comparative stranger, 'f
THo meeting was called to order 'by
General Dudley in a few appropriate
remariis, stating the object ot assem
bling them together, and nominating
as Chair man,'Genl Wnx Moorman bid
and highly respete'd jjitizeh." Upon
taking thexhair General Moore,made a
moft "feeling and eloqu'ent.address, en
dorsing the plan and- proposing to do
nate the land necesearV for the pur
pose, and to present to the ..teacher, if
A. Aw. '7 '
a permanent one could be obtained, a
pleasant and convenient site for a res
idence. General Dudley having offer
ed to erect the school building and
provide for the payment .of the teach
er, if the citizens' would purchase thtf
books, a committeej consisting of
Messrs. Moore,Gannaway,Woodruff and
Marshall, was appointed to take the
matter ia charge, and the meeting ad
journcd. Before I writo you again, the
school-will no doubt be. in full opera
tion, for nothing. here is left half done.
if attempted at all. The selection of
book ane arrangement of the school
ubilding havo been assigned to Capt
Lovell, A, A. 1-G oaGen. DudloyB staff.
The infantry forces at this place con
stitute the 2d brigade of MajVGeneral
Milrov's command- There are now
aino regiments, 153 d', l$2d', 14Sth, 154tb,
and 155th III"; 47th Wis,; 15 1st and
143d Ind. ; and ISSth Ohio. The troops
are'in a high slate of efficiency and dis
cipline. Their brigade drills frequently
cail forth - encomiums from veteran
officers, and reflect great credit upon
their commander as a thorough soldier
and perfect disciplinarian. General
Dudley is doing duty on his brevet
rank, being' Mijor 15th U. S. Infantry,
now stationed at Lookout Mountain.
He will carry with him, wherever the
fortune of the regular service may call
him, the "best wishes of both soldiers
and citizens for his ,happiness and

A Significant Fact.
We would call the attention of all
who doubt thogood polidy of restricting
tho elective franchise in this State to
supporters of the Government of the
United States, to the subjoined letter
from a gallant officer who has served his
country with "distinction in the army,
and ia yot in. the .service. The fact he
states is significant of what loyal .men
may expect if .the Staters again opened
to the control of rebels5 and their aids
ers and- abettors, throiiga . tho ballot
box-' '. -'
I have just learned that at a "recent
elction in Bedford county; TennM for
constable in the 23d civil district; " the
candidates were S., M Holt, ,of the 5th
Tennessee cavalry, and a fresh returned
rebel soldier, and that the traitor was
elected by a large majority.
Mr. Holt I knovy to be a bravo and
patriotic soldier one who bears hon
orable scars received battling for his'
country. If there, were no other- eyi-
dence than the fact that- he belongs to
Stokes' cavalry the terror of traitors,
and tho pride and admiration of all
oyal people is awarr&nt tharcasinOt'
Now, Mr. Editor, I wish to know if
this is a precedent for tho future ? It
may be said that this case iB of minor
importance; but it i3 tho principle in
volved to which -I wish' to call atten
tion. . '
After all wo havo suffered at the
hands of these traitors, after all the
blood and treasure that has been
poured out freely as water over this
fair State to re establish our .national
Government, are wo-to turn and deliver
it over again into the hands of the reb
els ? By what right can a man who has
lent all his power to overthrow the
Government'hold office ? And by what
right can a citizen vote for a traitor to
hold an office of trust ? We who have
laid all we hold dear upon earth upon
tho altar of our country, havo shed our
blood, have seen our homes pillaged
and laid waste, and our wives and chil
dren beggared by Jeff. Dayis' emissa
ries, were beginning to look forward to
tho time when loyal men might be pro
tected, but if rebels are to hold tho
re'inB of Government what has been the
gain? - - Soldier.
The Complicity or Davis and the Other
Rebel Leaders in the JIurder.
Though the question of the complic
ity of Davis and the rebel agents in
Canada in the murder of the President
has" not yet been directly taken up by
the court, much light has already been
thrown upon it indirectly in tho course
of testimony taken to establish other
points. Booth, the desperate tool,
stood ready to act at tho capital when
ever the word should bp given; and
Davis, in Rlchmond,"with his agents in
Canada, watched for the moment when
the blow would have most effect, that
they might give the word at that mo
ment, and made their arrangements to
take advantage' of their crime.
It was the repetition in this respect
of a piece of European history. Albe
ronif the Spanish Prime Minister, ar-
ranged at Madrid a plot to abduct from
Paris Philip of Orleans, regent of
France. He' had his creatures in Par.
is, jis Davis had his in Washington, and
others in the Netherlands, as Davis had
in Canada. And when all was ready
he sent word from Madrid to Paris to
"Fire the mines." Davis evidently
sent a similar word to. Booth: Hi3
messenger was Surratt, Surratt was
the medium of communication between
all the pointsof the plot ho testimo
ny of Weichman show3 that Surratt
returned from Richmond, April 3; that
he had a considerable sum in gold in
his possession doubtless tho "secret
service" gold of the confederacy
and lhat he had at Richmond had
personal intercourse with Benjamin
and Davis. And this man, pldtting to
murder the President, fresh, from the
presence of Davis, was then on his way
to Canada. Richmond thought that
the blow Bhould fall at once. He was
on his way to Eee what Montreal,
thought He arrived at Montreal On
the 6th of ApriL Can any one doubt
that this man, just from tho rebel cap
ital, had long interviews and a full un
derstanding with the rebel agents in
Canada? Certainly notj and the rc;
suit of tho interviews waB that Canada
agreed with Richmond that the - blow
should be given then, Surratt left Mon
treal on the 12th, and was in Washing
ton on the 14th, as is shown by tho tes
timony of D. C. Reed. He gave the
word to Booth at once, no doubt, and
Booth committed the murder that
By this simple chain of facts the
agency of Davis and the men in Canada
is made so certain, morally, that no
sane man can question' it' It is to be
hoped it may be made aS'dear legally.
If Surratt could be induced- to turn
State's ovidence it could bo easier to
hang Davis than.any other man named
with this crime. -New

. .Another Ghapter In Rebel Iafamy,
It has been 'slated frequently, of late,
that Dr. J, P. Blackburn, an agent of the
rebel government, had visited Bermu
da, and collected a' considerable lot of
clothing from yellow fever patients,
and .packed- them in trunks, to send
to the United States for the purposbf
introducing tho disease in this country.
The, matter has been, investigated, by
the civil authorities of .the Island the
fact proved, and Blackburn's" accom
plicej one Edward C. Sivanr held for

Dr. Blackburn has escaped into " neu
tral territory. During the recent yellow
fever epidemic in Bermuda, this Dr.
Blackburn took passage for that island,
He was a southerner, formerly ress
dent in Natchez, Mississippi. After his
arrival, he attended Beveral yellow fc
ver patients at the Hamilton Hotel
and at Mrs. Slater's. , Stone of them
died under his" care. He collected their
bed clothing including a large jquan-
jtity of woolen clothing whichi&ono

and sent it to the house, of Edward C.
S.wan, to be kept by him till an op
portunity occurred to send it North.
.Blackburn himself then left for Halifax.
It became known to the authorities
of Hamiltoa that this infected clothing'
was in possession of Swan, and they
caused his arest On the examination,
the abpvo facts appeared. Itwas shown
also that the Health Officer fouud these
trunks, in Swan's possession, crammed
full of clothes that had manifestly been
used by- yellow fever patients. Swan
himself testified that Blackburn had
delivered these trunks to him. Anath
er witness swore that Swan had told
him ho received the trunks to be sent
North, in order to communicate the
yellow fever. Still another witness
swore that Blackburn had told him he
had delivered the trunks to Swan for
that purpose, and. tho wages for the
service were variously stated at $500 in
theivholejrnd at $150 a month while
Swan was engaged in the business
And Blackburn told Swan to call on the.
officers of the Confederate Government

"Four years ago," sayB the ITew York

Onco more, kind brethren, I assume
the task of addressing you. Not that I
regard my opinions of such paramount
importance, or that their publicity
would enhance, on that account, the
value and preciousness of the truths
and sentiments in behalf of which they
are uttered. The principles and views
to which I now wish to call your attenr
tion, havo no need of "letters of com
mendation, " to recommend them to
your unbiassed judgnlcnt. They are
Btich, we believe, as Bhnll live, survive
and flourish in perennial freshness
whon their opposites and centrairies
shall,'for ages, been buried beneath the
restless and. destroying hand of time.
Like the din!y shining stars' of morn
ing, hid away behind the thin veil of a
summer's cloud, but faintly seen, with
their feeble light by tho lonely watch-
. So these views and sentiments con
cealed for the present, they may be, by
the clouds of prejudice, will in days to
come, come forth like those stars all ra
diant and bright, and as they higher
and higher ascend toward tho zenith
grow brighter and brighter until our
whole church shall rest under their
benign and Bweet influence. They de-
Tive' their value and efficiency of them
selves jnot of the hand that gives them
expression and form.
Moreover I speak because it is an
endeared prerogative of every member
of our noble church to freely canvass
and disciis3 those questions and poli
cies which have for their aim and end
the welfare and perpetuity of our or-.
ganization. You will, therefore, re
gard whatever is entertained (in this
as well as that in the former enis-
tie as proceeding from no factious spir
it, but only from .a disposition to
contribute my small aid to forward
the car of truth and the cause of our
church. And while it is a risiht a' nriv-
ilege, guarateed tou3, we should con
sider it a service' of duty.
What more appropriate time could
be selected than now to draw up the
reins of our minds and. bend the ener
gies and'powera of our understandings
to those subjects that bo immediately re
late to our spiritual as well as tempor
al happiness. Now that the, whole, na

just meed of pr,iise. Yet the judg
ment of mankind, history, a record: df-
just, clear and .impartial decisions,
drawn from what things arc, rather
than what they seem, will declare, in
unmistakable term3, the equal capaci
ty, learning, genius, eloquence, of our
brethren- North, with those of the
South. It may appear peurile to some
that we should pause to consider the
question,"whethei? the southern church
has abler men thf.n the northern" but
knowning as I Mo how wide spread
such a doctrine is and tho habit such
a view has had upon our people South,
"to cause them to think more highly of
themselves than they ought to think,
to be puffed up above measure," it be
comes necessary for us to look at it in
the testimony which our own church
history offers. It may tend likewise to
lower our pride and make U3 foeL that
this whole pcoplo are one ono-iin on
ergy, one in capacity, and equal to.
each other in all those elements that
make,a nation grsat and happy, and
men able and renowned.
Do' you not, leaders of our church,
when you let your minds revist the
scenes of other diiyB, where, after four
years of arduous and severe trial in
the vineyard. of God, you meet those
veterans of the cross, witnessing the
happy faceB and cheerful countenances,
feeling the warmigrasp of friendship,
and hearing the welcome, "God bless
you," when you go over these hours,
remaining only in memory's waste, do
you not regret they never return, and
can you not express yourself irf tho
"What peaceful lioura toe once eDjoycil,
How sweet their memory utill ;
"But they have lolt an aching void, . "
This world ,cn never fill."
Divided, severed as. wo aro, we are,
deprived of- their friendly aid and wise
counsels. Who can say wo can do
without them? Do we not need their
prayers? Do we not want their sym
pathy, their advice, their knowledge,
to help U3. If we could have done
without them in the past, we cannot
afford to do without them now. Our
church., .edifices are despoiled, our
means to erect no.w ones limited, in
some districts none at all, our publish
ing interests and periodicals disarrang
ed, in truth, the entire paraphernalia of
a complete and successful organization
broken up, and left to ourselves, it will
require many years "before we shall be
capable of carrying forward to any
great degree the caus9 of God, and
thereby'.the restoration of civil rule.
These difficulties, with tj.thors which
may suggest themselves, will create an
adverse tide against us, and itwilt de
mand the loftiest genius combined with
all the individual resources of our
church, to' stem the ' torrent and out
ride the storm. I am not prepared to
say such an effortwould be fruitless,
but what could learning, genius if you
please, and individual sacrifice, how
ever . cheerfully given, do against "re
sources and numbers." Other contest

with equal embarrassments would be

a great scarcity of food throughout tho

some bread riots have occurred. General
Wilson has commenced ia&uing rations to

o'clock from Hilton Head, in the steamer
Wm. H. Clyde, convoyed by tho U. S. gun

that the greater portion of tho parties still
