FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 1861.
jf We lay before oar readers this mora
Ing the proceedings of the Greeoeville Con
Tendon, and the memorial to tbe Legislature
"npon the eabj -ct of the difference between
East Tennessee and the rrft of the State. We
had cherished the opinion that after tbe ejec
tion of the 8 h Jane there woald be no differ
ence among tbe people of the State an to tbe
aoPDort and maintenance of the attitude of
tbe State as determined by that election. We
hardly know yet whether we are disappointed.
Tbe members ol that awmwtge were ap
pointed before tbe election, and' we do not
know whether its late action represents the
true sentiments of the people who roted
azainet the ordiaaoee of Separation. For
aught we know they, panning the idea npon
which tbey have acted ajrainst secession in
tbe general and In detail,' may be opposed to
a dismemberment of the State. Certainly
tbe tone and language of tbe "-declaration of
grievance," is unworthy a free, just and
magnanimous people, unworthy of tbe obj-xt
eonght to be accomplished, and unworthy of
history. We do not propose to enter into a
criticism, however, tbb morning, npon the
alleged causes of the extraordinary coarse
pursued by the Convention. We reserve
that for another occasion, if in oor judgment
it should . become necessary. When we do
undertake It we pledge ourselves to probe the
object to Iu bottom, and to give a thorough
expose of the movement which is designed to
turn East Tennessee over to the Lincoln
ncnrfMtinn and to brio a: on a civil conflict
between the people of this State among them
seves. We choose, for the present,
to . await the action of the Legislature.
There is one idea conveyed in tbe 'declara
tion of grievances," nevertheless attiibutr
in the action of Middle and Wtt Tennessee
to the Influence of a corrupt ana surjeimzea
press, which we feel it due to ourselves and
la the people to notice. It can apply only
to the press which sustained tbe Union, until
the bloody, unconstitutional and usurp&tory
proclamation of Lincoln for troops to eubju
,r.fa ih Snath. It was given forth before
in the press then endeavoring to support Lin
coln. In that form we did not care to digtn
fj It J notice. It is now put forth by
those who have attained, at least, a portion
of their prominence by tbe very instrnmen-
fta.litv thev seek to stab. We embrace tbe oc
casion to say that, so far as the allegation is
unliable to this Daper. it 13 unfounded
In every particular and infamously slao
In all its carts. We believe the
same of every other Union press in this part
of the State, and challenge and defy specifi
cations of papers and facts. While we do
this for ourselves and our contemporaries of
the press, we desire to say for tbe people
who have read our paper and coincided with
as in opinion, that we repel the imputation
that tbey could or would be led, like tbeep
to the slaughter, by any power incompatible
with their consciences and their judgments.
There Is another charge conveyed by this
declaration which we now repel with ecnal
positlveness, that a rtign of terror existed in
this part of tbe State, and that tbe election
u unfair and fouL We reserve the rest for
Tbt Greensville Convention.
This assemblage met at Creeneville on the
17th Inst. The officers were, Hon. T. A. E
Nelson, President; Johx Williams of Knox,
and Wh. Hbb-xell, of Monroe, Vice Pres.
dents; J ohm M. Flkmiso, of Knox, Secretary,
J. Moxbok Meek, of Jefferson, Assistant
Secretary. The county of Rhea was not rep
resented, and fonr counties were represented
bv alternates. Tbe Convention remained iu
session fonr days. The following la th.
suit of their labors:
DCCLARATIOS Or GRIXYAXCE3.
We 'be people or .bast lennessee again as
sembled in a Con veo i ion of our Delegates,
make the following declaration in addition to
tb4t heretofore promulgated by os at Knox-
Title, on tbe 30th and 3Iet day of May last.
So far as we can learn, the election held in
this State on the 8th day of the present
month, was free, with but few exception", in
no other part of tbe State, other than East
Tennessee. In the larger part of Middle and
West Teauesee, no cp-ecbes or discussions in
favor of tbe Union were permitted. Union
papers were not allowed to circulate. Meas
ures were taken in some puis of West Ten-Des-ee.
in defiance of tbe Constitution and
laws, which allow folded-tickets to have tbe
ballot numbered in such manner as to maik
and expose tbe Union votes. A Diaunian pa
per, the Nashville Qaxttte. in urging tbe peo
ple - to vote open ticket, declared thai "a
thief takes a pocket book or effis an en
trance into forbidden places j stealthy
means- a torv, in voting, usually adop s
pretty much tbe same course of procedure."
' Dissnionbits, in many places, had charge of
tbe polls and Unioo men, when voting, were
denounced as Linculnitea and Abolitionist.
Tbe unanimity of tbe votes in many large
counties wbere, but a few weeks ago, tbe
Union sentiment was so strong, proves be
yond doubt that Union men were overawed
by tbe tyranny of tbe military power and
still greater tvranny of a corrupt and subei
dized press. In tbe city of Memphis, where
6613 votes were east, but five freemen bad
tbe courage to vote tor tbe Union and these
were stigmatized in the pnblic press u ''ig
norant traitors who opposed .tbe popular
edict.' Oor earnest appeal to oor 1 retbren
in tbe other divisions of tbe State, was pub
lished then only to a small extent, and tbe
member and names of those who composed
oor Convention, as well aa tbe counties tbey
represented, were suppressed and the effort
madd to impress the minds of the people that
East Tennessee was favorable t j secession.
Tbe Memphis Appeal, a prominent Disunion
paper, published a false account of our pro
ceedings under the head The traitors is
CuOCIL." and styled us, who represented
tTey county but two in Ea-t Tennessee
(1 j.vftT batch of effected traitor who hover
areaad the noxious atmosphere of Andrew
Johnson's borne." Our meeting was tele
graphed to tbe N- O. Delta, and it was falsely
add that wa had paaxrd a resolution recom
mending aubmlsBioa if 70,000 votes were cast
agint drcermon. The dispatch added that
Taa Socthkks kiobth mm am detmmwed
t kou roee3JC3 or TBK Stats TBOCGH
thkt shoclo uui xao&rTT." Vol an tee rs
were allowed to vote in and out of the atate,
In flagrant violation of tbe Constitution.
From tba moment tbe election was over, and
before any detailed statement of the vote in
the different counties bad been oabuVhtd, and
before it was possible to ascertain the remit,
it was exuliiugty proclaimed that separation
had Urea carrkd by from 60.000 to 70 000
vviea. This was to prepare tbe pnblic mind
to enable tbe Secessionist to bold poesesioo
of the State though they should be in a mi
nority f The final result is to be announced
by a Disoaion Governor, whose existence do
peods epoa tbe success of secession, and no
provision is made by law for an examination
of the vote by disinterested persons or even
for contesting the election. For these and
other caases, we do not regard the result of
the election as exprweive of tbe will of a ma
jority of the freemen of Tennessee. Had the
election everywhere been conducted as it
was ia EabC Tennessee ws, ould entertain a
-different opinion. Here, no effort was made
to suppress seceasioa papers or prevent se
cession fpeecuea or votes, altbougs, an over
erheia &g majority of the people were against
Cis1 tn Jtiere, no effort baa been made to
prevent the formation of military companies
or obetrnct the traoportatioa of armies or
to proeecct those who violated the laws of
' the United Stale and ct Tennessee again!
treaeuo. The Union men of East Tennessee
asxioos to be sentralln the contest, were
ec nienl to to joy their own opinions and to
allow the ounce latitude of opinion axd so
tioa to those who tUSdvi from them, " Had
Cm km toleration prevaiird in other parte
Ct tie tzzla, e kare no coat sttjof
iry of oor people would have voted to re-
aaain in th Unions Bat. if this view is er
roneous, we have the same (and, as v'e
think, a much better) right to remain Ja te
Governmtt of the Uni'ed States, than the
other division of Tennessee have to ieceUo
from it. .''"
WeDrefer to remain attached, to the Gov
ernment of oor father. ! The Constitution of
the United Sute has done ns no wrong.
Tbe Congress of tbe United btates has passed
no law to oppress us. The President of tbe
United States has made no threat against
the law-abiding people of Tennessee. Uodr
tbe Government of the United States, we
have enjoyed as a nation more of civil and
religious ireedom tban any otbr people nn-
aer toe wnoie neaven. ve oeueve tnere s
no cane for rebellion or secession on the
part ot ine people ot Tennessee. xoae was
assigned by the Legmlature in their miscalled
Declaration of Independfece. No adequate
cause can be assigned. Tbe select committee
of that body asserted a era and inexcu a
ble falsehood ia their address to the people
of Tennessee when tbey declared that the
Govertnteat of the United States has made
war npon- them. - Tbe secession cause baa
thus far .been sustain d by deception and
falsehood; by. falsehoods as to tbe action ot
Congress by fUe dWpatcbes as to battles
that were never fought and victories that
were never woo; by false accounts as to the
earooses of the President: by taise represen
tatioos as to the views of Union men; and by
false pretenses as to tbe facility with which
tbe Secession troops would Uke possession of
tbe Capitol and capture the highest omcera
of tbe Government.
Tbe cause ot secession or rebellion has no
charm tor us. and its progress has been
maiked by the moat alarming and dangerous
attacks upon the public liberty. In other
States, as well as our owo, its whole course
threatens to annihilate tbe last vestige of
freedom. While peace and prosperity have
bletded us in the Government of tbe United
States, the following may be enumerated as
some of the fruits of secession.
It was n rired forward by members ot Con
gress who were sworn to support tbe Consti
tution tt the United Slates, and were them
selves suoDorted bv the Government;
It wa.- effected without consultation with
all the States interested in tbe slavery ques
tion and without exhausting peaceable meas

manv of tbe pursuits of lite, and bids fair to
involve tbe wbole nation iu irrelrietable
bankrnntcv and rain:
It has changed tbe entire relations of States
and adopted constitutions without submit
ting them to a vote of tbe people, and where
such a vote has been authorized, it baa been
upon tbe coodiiion prescribed by Senator
Mason, of Virginia, that those who voted the
Union ticket "srcaT leave the dtatk. -
It has advocated a . constitutional mon
archy, a King and a Dictator, and is through
the "Richmond press at - this moment, recom
mending to tbe Convention in Virginia a re
striction of the right ot suHrage, and "in sev
ering connection with the Yankees to abolish
every vittige of resemblance to the institutions of
that detested race,"
It has formed military leagues, passed mil
itary bills", and opened the door lor oppres
sive taxation, without consulting tbe people,
and then, in mockery of a free election, has
reouired them bv their votes to sanction its
usurpations under the penalties of moral pro-

It has attempted to dtsrsoy tne accounta

It has passed laws declaring It Treason to

ment of tbe United States, or against ue

It has attempted to destroy, and, we fear

must ultimately lead to the ruin of the peo-
Its bigoted, overbearing and intolerant
spirit has already subjected the people of East
rennessee to many petty grievances; our
people have been insulted; our nags nave
been fired upon and torn down; our houses
have been rudely entered; oar families sub
jected to insult; our peaceable meetings in
urrnntMh oar vome aod children ebot at
iv a merciless soldiery; our towns pillaged;
our citizens robbed and some of them assas
sinated and murdered.
No effort has been spared to deter tbe Un
ion men of East Tennessee fiom tbe expres
sion of their tree thoughts. Tbe penalties ot
treason baa been threatened against them,
and murder and assassination have been
openly encouraged by leading secession jour
nals. As secreeion nas oeec tnut overoear-
iog and intolerant while in the minority in
East Tennessee, nothing better can be exptct-
ed of the pretended majority, than wild, un
constitutional and oppressive legislation; an
utter contempt and disregard ot law; a deter
mination to force every man in the State to
swear to the support of a Constitution be ab
hors, to yield his money ano property to aid
a cunt he detests, and to become tbe object
of scorn and derision as well as the victim of
intolerable and relentless oppression.
In view ot these considerations, and oi tne
fr ot that the people of East Tenneosee have
declared their fidelity to the U"ion by a ma
jority of about 20,000 votes. Therefore, we
do resolve and declare:
st. That we do earnestly desire the res
toration of peace to our wbole country, and
most especially tbat our own section of tbe
State of Tennessee should not be involved in
2d. That the action of our btate Legiala-
latnre in passing the so tolled "Declaration of
Independence," and in forming the "Military
League' with the Confederate States, and, in
adopting other acta looking to separation ot
tbe State or Tennesse rrom tne government ot
the United States, is unconstitutional and il
legal, and, therefore, not binding upon us as
laval citizens. ' -
3d. Tbat In order to avert a conflict with
oar bretbern in other parts of tbe State, and
desiring that every constitutional mean shall
be resorted to, lor the preservation of peace,
we do, therefore, constitute arl appoint O.
P. Temple, of Knox. . John Netberland, of
Hawkins, and James P. McDowell, of Greene,
commissioners, whose duty It shall be to pre
pare a memorial, and cause tbe same to be
presented to the General Assembly of Ten
nessee, now in session, adtiog its consent
that the cocntiYs composing East Tennessee,
and such counties in Middle Tennessee as de
sire co-operation with them, may form and
erect a separate State.
4th. Desiring, in good faith, tbat the Gen
eral Assembly will grant tbia our reasonable
request, and still claiming tbe right to deter
mine our own destiny, we do further resolve
that an election be held in all tbe counties of
Eist Tennessee, and such other counties in
Middle Tennessee, adjacent thereto, a may
desire to co-operate with us, for tbe choice of
Delegates to represent tbem in a General
Convention, to be held in the town of Kings
ton, at such lime as the President oi this con
vention, or in case of bis absence or inability,
any one of the Vice-Presidents, or, in like
case with them, the Secretary of this conven
tion may designate; and tbe officer so desig
nating the day lor tbe assembling of said con
vention, shall also fix tbe time for holding
the election herein provided for, and give
reasonable notice thereof,

resolution, the Sheriffs ot tbe different conn
tire are hereby requested to open aad h-.ld
aid election or cause tbe same to be held, in
the usual manner and at tbe usual places of
voting, as prescribed by law; and in the event
the Sheriff of any county should fail or re

tbe same to be dene, tbe Coroner of each
ooaaty ia requested to do so; and should such
Coroner fail or refuse, then any constable of
each county is hereby authorized to open and
bold eaid election or cau-e tbe same to be
done. And if in any county none of the
above named officers will hold said election,
then any Justice of the Peace or Freeholder
in each county is authorized to bold the same
or cause it to be done. Ibe officer or other
person holding said election shall certify the
result to the President ot this Convention or
aaeb officer as may have directed tbe same to

- - MEMORIAL.
To tbe General Assembly of the State of
Tennessee: Tbe undersigned, memorialists,
on behalf of the people of East .Tennessee
bear teave respectfully to sbow, that at a eon
vention of delegates, holden at Greeneville,
on the 17tb,18tb,19tb and 20th days of June,
instant, in which was represented every coun
ty of Eaet Tennessee, except the county of
Knea, it was resolved:
I-t. "Tbat'we do earnestly desire the res
toration of peace to our wbole country, and
most especially that our own section of tbe
State of Tennessee shall not be involved in
civil war." - - - , - - -
2d. "That tbe action of the State Legist;
tore in passing the so-tailed 'Declaration of
Independence,' and in forming tbe 'Military
League' with the Confederate States, and in
adopting other acts looking to a separation
of Tennessee from tbe Government nf the
United States, is unconstitutional and ille
gal, and therefore not binding npon us as
loyal citizens." . r
3. "And it was farther resolved, 'That in
order to avert a conflict with our brethren in
other parts of the State, and desiring that
every constitutional means shall be resorted
to, tor tbe preservation of peace, we do,
therefore, constitute and appoint O. P. Tem
ple, of Knox, John Netberland, of Hawkins,
and James P. McDowell, of Greene, commis
sioners, whose duty it shall be to prepare a
memorial and cause the same to be presented
to tbe General Assembly of Tennessee, now
in session, asking its consent that tbe coun
ties composing East Tennessee, and such oth
er counties in Middle Tennessee as dexlre to
co operate with them, may form and erect a
Tbe idea of a separate political existence
is not a recent one, but it is not necessary
here to restate the geographical, ' social, eco
nomical and industrial reasons which have
often been urged in support of it. The rea
son which operated npon the oonventioa and
seemed to them conclusive, was the action of
tbe two sections, respectively, at tbe election
held on the 8 b iust, to determine the future
national relations of the felate. In that elec
tion, the people of Kat Tennessee, by a ma
jority ot nearly twenty thousand votes, de
cided to adhere to the Federal Union, estab
lisbed prior to tbe American Revolution, and
to which Tennessee was admitted in the year
1795; while tbe rest of tbe State ia reported
to have decided by a majority approaching
even more nearly to unanimity, to leave the
CbUerat union and to join tbe body politic
recently formed under tbe name of tbe Coo-
federated States of America. Tbe same di
vertity of sentiment was exhibited, but less
distinctly, at the election on tbe Otb' of Feb
ruary last, when the people of East Tennes
see decided by a heavy majority against hol
ding a convention to discuss and determine
our federal relations, overcoming by nearly
fourteen thousand the majority in the rest of
me btate in favor ot such a convention.
This hopeless and irreconcilable difference
of opinion and purpose, leaves no alterna
tive but a separation of tbe two sections of
tbe State; for it is not to be presumed that
tuner would lor a moment, think of subm
gating the other, or of coercing it into a po
litical condition repugnant alike to its inter
est and to its honor. Certainly tbe people of
feast xennessee entertain no such purpose to-
waras tne rest or tne state. And the avow
als of thfir Western brethren, tn connection
with their recent political action, have been
too numerous and explicit to leave us in anv
douoi as to ineir views.
It remains, therefore, that measures be
adopted to effect a separation, amicably, hon-
oraoiy, ana magnanimoaniy, by a settlement
of boundaries, so as to divide East Tennessee,
and any contiguous counties or districts
which may desire to adhere to her, from the
rest of tbe Stato, and by a fair, just and equi
table division ot tbe public orooertv and
the common liabilities. It has occurred to
tbe undersigned as the best method of ac
complishing this moat desirable end, tbat
your body should take immediate action in
the premises, by giving a formal assent to the
proposed separation, pursuant to the provi
sions or section a, article 4. ot the Uonstitu
tion of tbe United States; and by convoking
a convention representing tbe sovereign pow
er of the people of tbe respective divisions
or lenneseee, witn plenary autonty to amend
tbe Constitution ot tbe State as to carry into
enect tue cuauge contemplated. .
With a view to such action, or to action
leading to tne same result, the undersigned
ask permission to confer with your body.
either in general session or through a com
mittee appointed tor this purpose, so as to
consider and determine the details more sat
isfactorily than could otherwise be done.
1 Awaiting response to this memorial, the
uodersigne beg W add assurances of every
etdeavor on toeir pari not oniy to preserve
toe peacetul relations heretofore subsisting
between tbe people in tbe two portions of the
state, out to remove as jr as posaiDie, an
causes of disturbance in tbe future, so that
each may be left free to follow its chosen
path of prosperity, and honor, unembarrassed
by any collision with tbe other.

days, says there are a large number of pris

be wonld be bung. He heard them boast of
the immensity ol their force, but does not be

port tbat tbe enemy have erected batteries
one and a half miles north and east of tbe

this direction bad been obstructed by trees
being felled across ail the level places. This
destruction ot all the roads precludes the
iaea mat tne rebels intend to advance, and
the same view Is sustained in tbe fact that
tbe roads leading to Centreville, in tbe rear
of Fairfax, have been nearly cleared np.
There is but one battery at Fairfax Court
House. Very few troops are in the village.
