Though anxious to secure the release of the Pu

terms woiKvsed ; first, because under the terms
of-tlw-tpit Jatwu-of-the -ibrU as published in

the Federal t-oinu.andex expressly stipulated that
the si k and woulided of tbe garrison should be

the flae of truce was clearly illegal, and the

sort with them, of whose character we are un
inforfned, lwt tlie main object of their trip was,
as stated by themselves, to return a Confederate

to draft resolutions expresc'ive of the sense ot
the meeting. Carried.
The chair appointed Edward Ccoper. Esq .
Mr- Alien A. Hall, of Davidst-n, Ed Jwdaa
Stokes, Esq., of Unlen;isaid crcmittee
During-tho absence of the committee, the
meeting was addressed by Col. W. H- Wisener of
Bedford, and Hon. W B Stokes of DeKalb.
The speeches ot these gestletnen and those who
followed, are noucad more at length cisswhere
Ths committee on, resolutions,' through their
chairman, Mr Cooper, retailed the ibllawmg
preamble asd resolutions :
Whereas, It is mauifssr'rn o. Jttucr
Ecct'iDg that, whilst t io Stale rf 1 er.ueesrc was
an integral part of the govemrscn: of the Unitc-J
States, i'ls citizens were hi the e::jnyment ot tha
full prot'-'-tion of life, libertyar.d proparty, under
the institutions cf the United States, aud tha
laws passed in accerdar'ee therewith, And all of
their material aud political interrita wcrt. watch
fully and arduily guarded by laws introduced
by southern men representatives of our selec
tion identified thoroughly with all the interests
of our people; which laws tvere decided to be
constitntir.sal by the SupreEa Court jcp the
United States the constitutional tribunal to de
cide all such questions ,
And whereas, Because cf the election in -a-consututionul
and regular furm of a President ef
tlie United States who received i,o support in
tha Stats of Teuuessee aad. tba effort of that
President to maintain the integrjtycf the Union,
and enforce the laws cgainst' armed rlsanco
our people, in commou wswi tlm ponpls of othci
States, are piecipitated into a revilution, resort
ing to the arbitrament oi arsis tur tnu settle
ment of our political differences, instead,of tha
peaceable remedies provided by the Constitution;
And whereas, it is evident tr.a: tne autnenty
of the Fedjral government is now exerted over
this patt- til Tenuesstj, aud will be iu u chert
time fully extended over tLo entire a ate and
it is the duty of every citizen so to act as to free
oursel es from the consequence!, of internecine
war, and tc rotarn to tun government which :s
willing and able to protect us ;
iherelore. bo it lesoivtd by a portion ol the
people of Tennessee, in convention assembled:
i. i nai i lie social, punuoai ana material inter
ests of the people of Tennessee, and .the safety
and welfare of our friends and relatives now iu
the Confederate army, imporiotis'y demand tho
return of the Stat to her former relations with
the Federal Union.
2. That all cood citizens who concur with us
in this opinion are earnestly invited to co-operate
in the accomplishment of this object so vital to
our future peace aud happiness.
;5. Tbfit tho chairman oi tins meeting appoint
a comiuitfe of three to take Into cen deration
the condition of the prisoners of war from Ten
nessee, now held in custody by the jroveniment
and endeavor to obtain their release and their
return to their allegiauce, upon terms alike com
patible with tho interests of the government aud
the honor ot tho soldier.
4 That tho forbearance, moderation, and gen
tlemanly denorment of the officers and soldiers
of the Federal army, sinco tho occupation of
Tennessee, challenge our highest admiration.
5. That tins meeting most cordially approves
of the address made to tlie people of Tennessee,
by his excellency. Gov. Andrew Johnson, dated
March loth, J&ov;, anti tne policy oi ins aumin'
istration sinco that time.
C. That a committee of five be appointed by
tlie chairman, who shall prepare nu address to
the people of Tennessee, expressive ot tho oo-
iects of the meeting.
Alter which, on motion oi j. a. ruuer, oi
Davidson, seconded by W. H. Polk, they were
read a second tune and voted on separately
They were adopted without a dissenting voice.
From Suffolk. Five hundred Yankee cav
alry entered Suffolk Tuesday morning, little
after sunrise, eight abreast, yelling and shouting
like so many madmen. The people expected the
iuvadors, and wore not at all disconcerted by
their boisterous and rowdyish demonstrations,
Tt is renorted that tho cavalry were lomed, yes
tcrdav, by a regiment of Infantry. This rumor
is not confirmed. Tho arrival of the cavalry
we know to bo correct. A gentleman who saw

Mr. W. J. Smith, whu rsidi" in that place,
w here hi was formerly news agent for tho Mem
phis papers ou the Charleston railroad, was ar
rested ou the authority of the provost marshal
there. It is said that he had expressed his opin
ion that a woman who would act so as to render
herself liable to the action of the recent infamous
proclamation of Butler, iu iNew Orleans, was no
lady. It is also said that jiapers were iounu in
his posssssiou whose tenor was not ol a patriotic
character, aud that a well-knowu gentleman in
this city, connected with him in business trans
actions, was implicated by these papers. Au ar-
i rowt of such a gentleman was made here yester

ing Smith's papers wo have only what rumor,
perhaps unreliable, states.
French Amhulance. Winn & Co. have
made a specimen of the French ambulance of
Caraeolethe for conveying the wounded from the
field; it appears tn bo all that could bo desired
lor the purpose. A large pack saddlo is placed
over tho back of a mule, famished with sacks
for necessities, instrnmonts, lood, etc., and hav
ing a vessel of water. Pendaut from the sides
are two light frames, over which cAuvas is
arched; on each of these a wouuded man can
be laid, with the head properly raised, aud con
veyed away. When not in use tho ambulauco
foliN into a smallspaco and is suspended from the
pack saddle. In passing uver rough ground,
crossing cteeks, etc , the motion ot a mule
-ould be found much more bearable than that of
a wb on. The same house have also made a
specimen cf another French ambulance, by
jvbish two. persons can readily carry off a
wounded or sick man. It is convenient, com
fortsble, aud occupies little space when not used.
Specimens have been sent, to Corinth for approval.
