Commenting on the speech of MaJ.
Thompson, of Nashville, delivered
in New York on lost Friday evening,
the NawYork World of Saturday
says : , J
There appears in this Insue an ad
dress which merits the liest attention
of those desiring an exact nnd unlm
passioued statement of the situation
in Tennessee. From time to time,
as everyi one knows, we have
had reports of disorganization and
violence from that State, but never
until now, so far as our knowledge
goes, bos t)io true condition of affairs
there been! clearly and connectedly
presented. Taking up the present
Stute Government from its inception,
Mr. Tnotupson, the author of this
address, traces Its history through
Its protean shapes of violonca and
fraud down to the effort even now
making ht the Bauwnlow Legislature
to prop the, wafting fortunes of the
rtaiiicar party with blood.
Familiar as we ait) With the wrongs
enacted In the more Southern States
under the reooustructidti scheme, this
recital of the course pursued in Ten
nessee strikes us as embodying, per
haps, even greater Iniquities. Iu Ar
kansas, under her Africanized Consti
tution, a whit man may, always
provided that be swears to a cllef in
negro equality, claim aome right to
vote; but in Teunesaeo. . as the fran
chise now stands, there is no man in
the btato can vote unless Urownlow
says ao. - -Sutlrare there la narrowed
down to t iia. that no man votes un
less rejTiNterad. and no man Is regis
tered, renains ao, unless it please the
Governor. Suffrage being the State
and Brow nlow being suffrage, It Is
easy to credit c-very-thing that Mr.
Thompsoii relates of Tennessee.
l or these statements be oners proof;
ami If the reader will but go over this
realty very noie address wltn care,
it Will strike Kim as each stage is
reached, that ha has seen something
relating to Just that very circim
stance lu the telegraphlo dispatches
of mat ui y. Thus wo may remem
ber that inere was considerable ex
citement last spring at an officer of
tho regu ar army having forbid a
campany of llrownlow's negro mili
tia to ent.-r the town of Franklin at
an elcctli n time, and the secret his
tory of tl is affair Is fully shown in
what we published to-day, though
at the time the matter died away
without anything more than the at
tention cxiited by the brlof telegrams
Other fiilnt voices that have from
time to tLue como up from Tennes
see, but pissed away unregarded, are
in jute manner revived ami ex
plained, and tho result of all this ox-
noslton-i-i a most important state
ment. Mr. Thompson is, as is stated
iu his renarks, a iiatiVoTennesseean,
and speaking for his down-trodden
State dm so with a degree of good
sense and correct feeling that will at
once striko tho reader. There is no
attempt strlightsof oratory. It was
Mr. Thmipaoit's mission to state
things Jiu t as they are, and In this we

Gentlkmbn : I am obliged to you
for the invitation which you have
made to me to act as Chaplain of the
Convention of Sailors and Soldiers
about to convene at Cleveland. I
cannot attend it, but I heartily wish
it, and all other conventions, of what
party soever, success, whose object is
the restoration of all the States lately
in rebellion to their Federal relat ions.
Our theory of government has no
place for a Stateexceptln theUnlori.
It is justly taken for granted that the
duties and resKnsibilities of a Htate
in Federal relations tend to its politi
cal health, and to that of the whole
nation. Kven Territories are hastily
brought in, often before the prescribed
conditions are fulfilled, aa If it were
dangerous to leave the community
otttslde of the great body politic.

sentatives of Tennessee been ad m it-

Congress, and, in moderate succession,

The Federal Government ' la unfit
to exercise minor police and local
government, and will Inevitably
blunder when it attempts it. To
keen a half score of States under Fed

ties and responaiblllth: toobltge the
central authority to govern half tho
territory of the Union by Federal
civilofllccraand by the army, is a pol

and principles, but pre-eminently

It is said that If admitted to Con
gress the Southern Senators and Ite
tiresenfatives will coalesce with
Northern Democrats and rule the
country. I this nation then to remain
dismembered to serve the ends of par
ties? Have we learned no wisdom
by the history of tho past ten years,
lu which just this course of sacrificing
tho nation to the exigencies of par-
tics plunged us into reiielllon and
Even admit that the power should
pass Into tho hands of a party mado
up of Southern men and the hither
to dishonored and misled Democracy
of the North, that power could not
be used Just as they pleased, The
war has changed, not alotie institu
tions, but ideas. The whole country
has advanced. Publio sentiment is
exalted far beyond what it has been
at any former period. A new" party,
would, like a river, lie obliged to seek
IU chaunels in the already existing
slopes and forms of tho continent.
We have entered a new era of liber
ty. The style of thought is free and
more noble. Tho young men of our
times are regenerated. The great
army has been a school, and hundreds
of thousands of men are gone home
to preaeli a truer and nobler view of
human rlghU. All tho Industrial In
terwiU of society are moving with in
creased wisdom towards Intelligence
aud lilierty. Every where dn church
es, in literature, and nature and nat
ural sciences, in physical industries,
in nodal questions, as well as lu poll
tics, the nation feels that the winter
is over, and a new spring hangs In
the. horison and works through all
the elements. In this happily
changed and advunced condition of
things, no party of the retrograde can
maintain itself; Everything, march
e, aud parties must march.
I hear with wonder and shame and
scorn the fear of a few that the Soutli
once in adjustment with Ihe Federal
Government will rule this nation!'
The North is ricli never so rich; the
South is poor never before so poor.
The population of the North Is nearly
iloublo that of tlie South. The iu
dustry of tiie North) - in diversity, in
forwardness and productiveness, ill
all the machinery and education re
quired for manufacturing, is half a
oeutury in advance of tho South.
Churches iu the North crown every
hill, aud schools awarul lu every
neighborhood; while the South has
but scattered light, at long distances,
like llght-houiau twinkling alolig the
edge of a continent of darkness. In
the presence of such a contrast, how
mean and craved is the fear that Ihe
South will rule the policy of the
laud I That It will have an inllnem-.',
that It will contribute, in lime, nnsd

demoralised by' prosperity, and bosot-'

discharge Its share of rMdltrcnl duty.
In such a case as the South fWit onlv

Oil the influence nf Masonry on the

Tbefutulemeiltal principles of Mason

Masons may make thehiselves known

can Free Masons react on our epoch
itgaltist the Idea of war, which Is the)
negative of human fraternity? A. In
what measure and In what manner Is
It proper to price primely tlsin against
TituDftMornATa to Carry thb
Country. Tito South seems likely
to go with a rush for Seymour, and
the reason Is that the Republican pot
icy has been made so clear by Con
gress and the reconstructors that It Is
impossible to disguise it, especially
in that most offensive bolnt. neirro
suffrage. Ort the other hand there Is
everything to hope from tho Demo

sympathy of the leaders of that par
