FOU VICE-PRESIDENT :
FRANK P. BLAIR,
' Old Spitfire's "inelish" proclama-
tlnncamo too late for our last issue,
, but we puiilian it to-ciuy. very good
man wno reous it win iimu wint ne isjBhort notice, for any emergency that

ntm win woniier now even mien a
character eouJU weave bucji a thisuo,
orilesne consuiuio tne material 01
this document. It needs no analysis
to dcvclopo ib Infamous character
and brutal designs.
None who know Brownlow were
surprised at the proclamation, but
many flattered thenuelvea that there
would bo uo cull for militia, in tho
face of the federal constitution and
the assurance of the President that
enough of federal troops should bo
sent here to preserve the peace. But:
this could not satisfy Brownlow, who
believes that peace hero will be detrl-
xmiuUil to his party in tho.ISorth. In
addition to this cause of dlssutisfac-1
tion, tho old snvago sees, with alarm,;
that the negroes of ths South are rap-,
Idly becoming Democratic! aud thatj
It is necessary to organize them into!
militia companies that they may be
kept aloof from Democratic influences
jund voted, cn manse, for the Iladical,
party. 1 ' I
1 But tliere Is still a third reason for
calling out tho militia, and lt Is to bo,
found in that portion of the order,
from the War Department which de-
clarw that a sufficient force shall bo.
V)i hand to pcuro the execution of tho
)ava und to protect "law-abiding eifc-
iaous." Bight here tlie shoe pinches.
Brownlow knows that tho law-abiding
citizens aro the so-called rebels,
mid as they arc tho parties whom he
intended as the viutims of an unre
strained band of greedy marauders,
the promise of federal protection to
them 1 an insult to him as tlie Grand
Cyclops of tho "loll" league, which
he finds It difficult to digest. Had
tlio word "loyal" been substituted for
"law-abiding oltUoiiM," -it In imuHihlo
But. whatever the motives and ob
ject of this act of usurpation and
prospective oppression, It Is the duty
of the Intelligent and patriotic, by
continual furbuaraucc, to , maintain
pence ami order, if companies, blac'c
or white, are made up under tills call,
treat tlieni with quiet dignity and si
lent contempt, and if there be collis

Not tle.ilving to dwell upon this

There was on last Saturday night,
a Joint meeting of the Junior and
Senior Democratic Clubs, at which
several electors wero appointed for
, the county. As tlie report Is publiuh-
ed In another column, we shall offer
no comment on tho proceedings, but
procoed to express tho hope that tlie
electors will enter, early and ear-
nestly upon the canvass, resolved to
do all in their power to win over to
the cause of poaco and liberty every
.man amenablo to reason. Even
where love of justice Is dead, appeals
to self-interest will have their weight,
and it is not impossible to convince
even the negro, that the ruin of the
whiten of the South, Involves his
own, and that tho overthrow of the
government must entail upon them
a slavery far more grinding than the
6ne from which they have escaped
tho slavery of hopeless povertv, to be
followed by ultimate extermination.
When the demand for labor ceases,
through the ruin of those who now
need jt, the negroes will learn, to
their sorrow, . that the right of suf-
frago will furnish them 110 homes
and iwiastcd freedom, no bread. Their
carpet-bag and scullnwag friends will
fill tlio offices and fill tlieir pockete.

starvation, without aid or sympathy

arc begged to work, do not look Into
the future far enough to sco that the
farmers here, staggering under the
weight, of Radical taxation, aro bo
oming, every day, loss able to hire,
and that ultimately, their waning
fortunes will result In little land to
work and little need of labor beyond
that of their own hands. Then the
negroes will beg for work nnd not
find it, ami curse, too luto, the devils
who have ruined thcni. This is tlio
future of this country under Radical
rule. Teach the negroes to see lt, and
that rule will cease. .
