On the 31st of March last, the closing rtav of what newBDADer men all concede to bo th busiest quarter of the year, re turna were made bv the several newepa per ooncerns of thia city, showing the i'ol lowing result : Appeal $6192 9S Avalanche K U The great Democratic State Con vention for fhe nomination of Stat officers for New York, assembled at Syracuse and completed its labors in one dav. An immense concourse of citizens is represented as having been present. Resolutions were adopted unanimously demanding the prompt restoration of all the States to their rights under the Constitution, univer Hal amnesty, reduction of the standing army, abolition of the Freedmen' Bureau, restoration of the rightful authority of the judiciary, and the subordination of the military to the civil power. They arraign the ad ministration for attempting to accom plish partisan inea.sures by coercing States into assenting to them, lor sup porting class interests against those of the masses, and becoming the pa tron of accumulated wealth, and for the mismanagement of for fign teot itrmirs, and failure to pro- certain American citizens in Great Britain and Cuba. Thev de clare a determination to fulfill all gov ernnient obligations according to their letter and spirit, and that it is due to those from whose labor government loans must be paid, that " such obli gations should be discharged when due, in the manner provided by tin law which created them that the multiplication of taxes, the inuisit rial process by which they are wrung from the people, and the exemption from taxation of a large moniid class is a gross abuse and that taxes should be simplified, and equally distributed on the property of the countrv, the tarn! reduced to a revenue basis, and thus freedom given to commerce. With reference to national issues, they also further resolved "That the Fif teenth Amendment of the Federal Constitution, proposed by the Itadical majority in Congress in a spirit of contempt of the eople and of the right of the Suites to rcgulale the elec tive franchise, and in utter disregard of the pledges of the party, and at tempted to be forced upon the States as a condition of their restoration to civil gouerninent and to their repre sentation in the National legislature, is intend-d to place the question of suffrage in the hands of the central powers, and by debasing to demoral ize the representati ve system." The President of the Convention, Hon. Allex C. Bkacu, on taking his seat, called attentiou to the fact that tor four j ears, since the war, the Itad ical party had hen saving the Cnion, and yet " certain States are still out of the Cnion, and will remain excluded until they consent to such change in the Constitution as a party of the Rad ical Congress may dictate, and that their submission shall be the price at which they are admitted. Professing to be lovers of liberty, they have sul jugated the civil authority to military rule, and have violated every right of citizens and individuals which the Constitution guranties to them. Pro-!--. tig to be the party of purity, they have exjmnded one-eighth of the cap ital of the country, and yet have ex empted from taxation the banking in terest. Proftssing to be the party of economy, their administration has been marked with reckless extrava gance and with corrupt profligate ex penditure. The people have become disgusted with the management of this party. They will demand vqual an J exact justice for all. They will not tolerate legislation for the especial benefit of the manufac turer, the banker and the bond holder. Our citizens will not support the party which inflicts upon them such grievous burdens." The following isa brief extract from the remarks of Mr. Richard O'Guh- man: Now that the hour of returning reason has corns; now that our hearts can apeak the words of forgiveneaa to one another; tmw BArain the old leiuo-rtic party which of old appealed to and obeyed the will of the people, to inai biu m again apieaia to renew the memories and to re vive the orinciplee that have been trodden under foot. It reawakes the memories of the old and true emotions of its better audits kindlier days, and, preadin(? ,.ut ila arms of protection orer all honest men and honest parties throughout the laud, it holds aloft the ancient banner of the ( ,n atitution uuder which we were happy. (Applause. Some men lair or deud is sues Felfow-eitiieus, Issues may die, but true principle uuist live forever. Ai.planse.j Slavery 6 a dad iasu alaverv is dead ; secession Us deed issue - that idea went down in 1 lie storm of n : btit the right of the States, the rik'bts of anir-governmeiil of .States in all their lo cal coneers, that is the principle on Uek i t Ksj in this country, and that pritn ipio is to be vindicated anew. Applause.) I like tar manly protest against the so called Fifteenth Amendment t-i Mm t'on stilutlon. in your resolutions. 1 1 ll called an amendment, but it is In fact ' -inversion of the Constitution; it ia inconsis tent with the vital principle by which the Constitution lives, the right to regulate suffrage in the States; the riht to say who shall choose the legislators of States. What are these but the right to make laws in that State, ami when that is surren dered in the groat State of Sew York, the State-is dead. tJreat applause As for negro suflrage, I have no opinion to give; our frienda in South Carolina may like it and adopt It. Let them it la the concern of their Stale; but that we in New York have any authority to compel them to adopt It and to say who shall be voters in their State, or that they should have a right tosay to ns who shall be voters in our State, thai ia subversive of the very prin ciples of the Constitution, the very prin ciples in the words " I'nited States;" for if it is carried the Status are dead. Ap plause. That is the steady march of em pire which is being developed. The prin ciples of the Republican party are unity, consolidation, and empire at last. The chief issue in New York as well as in the Southern States is negro suffrage and the Fifteenth Amend ment. And this will be handled with out gloves in the course of the canvass on which the State has now entered. New York has not ratified, and the result will be a rescission of theresolu tion which was adopnd by the late Legislature if the weight of reason is able to overcome the blind fanaticism of party. As indicating the course of the caneass In the Empire State, we we take from the proceedings of this initial convention an extract at more considerable length from the report of the principal speech delivered by Hon S. J. Tilden, as follows: ; It was but a fewlays ago that I met one of the most eminent Kei-uhlicaiis in tin I'nited States, and he put up his hands with a jesture that awea me into snent attention, and said: "I will tell you one thinir. between us. Grant ia a failure." The name of the autherof this unexpect ed communication is contiuential, but the secret itself is known to the whole Ke publican party. Notwithstanding that great matters of national coiii-ern are treated with levity, the administration ot (ien. Urant is assiduously endeavoring to work what is practically revolution in the most important element the Consti tution of eur Government. I "mean the suffrage by the Fifteenth Amendment. Thev attempt, in the first place, to take from the people of the States that control of suffrage which tbey have immemori Jlv exercised, of saying who shall vote within those States ;applaus and transfer that question to Congress. They are creating a state of the law in which, by a change of the naturalization laws, half a million of Chinese may be brought into the State of New York and made voters without the consent, and in fact against the will, of the people of theState aJ New York. They are creating a state of the law in which,' without any change in the naturalization laws, half a million of liberated African slaves can come with in this State and Income voters against the will of the people of this state. Now, gentlemen, let me not be told that half a million of Chinese will not come, or that half a million of Africans will not come. v hat l otneoi to is, that such a state f tksj law is gree ted. It has no effecLno pra- tie al pur pose; it has n utiuHli it is going into effis t practically to IBwxtent ol its ope ration, it wil no noi oniv a ceiiainiv. oo crime airainst the people of tins Stat and every other Stato against whom the measure "may bo enforced. This is not all In the second place, the measure trunsfers ill control from the people ot the state At nieseiu no State Legislature can bantre the suffrage laws m a state, i ou can onlv change ll nv an amendment k vour State -onstitutiou. and that has. this State, to 1k twice submitted to the is-ople. Now. I say this fifteenth i.mend uent takes away au voice iroui incpcopiv in this liiu-ortani mailer, ana gies it t Congress, as in any ordinary matter lecislai ion. Ai'aiu. tv the vague, loose general phraseology of the second se-tion of the lifioentli amendment, tongress takes to iiseit the power ot detcmnnin n l'.ai le.-;s:it ion is necessary to carry on the amendment. Anv legislation that foimress mev think til u authorized u der this section. Now, Congress may ob iect to the way in which the amendment may lie carrieo. in Mninuai - . . listrirt under State laws, and may claim to anooinl insi-eclors ot election lo esiai lish and enforce new registry laws, and mav send Cnited States Marshals into each district to govern tne woiKings oi tho law in that district and make it ope rate exclusively from the suffrage. I say tho phraseology ot me section broad. wv-ping. and l-'cse that r is ca nable of the most dangerous const ruction ami that construction will, no doubt, be nut upon it it the Republican party main in power. ! Applause. And now i this measure to lie carried out and tn:ide the law of the land? It is by forco and by fraud, and by no other means. Vir ginia. whom we fought and conn uered be- cauce she tried to go out of the I'nion, is now considered out, and is required to submit to this alteration in the franchise as a condition to her readuussion; and then, that lieiug gained, her assent Is em ployed to csiablisii .md onloreo the same lc in tie- ihio ot flew iora, wnicn fought agaiusi h r. Tor it is not now law for Virginia or South Carolina, but law for New York, for Fenmtyl vania, tha s to be established andetlforcud By th reed assent of Virginia. I sa , then that the force is exercised against us, the i.eoole of theT'nited States, His a wrong o us. and II there ne any itisiinea! am ior ..... . . .. a lorctiile cnange oi mo suurage on me Slates lately in revolt in the rights of war in the alleged necessities created in- ! tie xt-iir wle.t eveiio can there ts- in lntlict- igiho same inoasure on ihose wuolouglit . , . - . i ou our sideT Jt lias in ll also anon,. : i men l of fraud. The platform on winch Jen. Grant was elected pledged the Republican party to leave tho suf frag-- ouestion in the loyal States the nconie of those Siates. urant c cepti-d that pledge. The people who voted for him voted with that understanding. and vet the moment hegets into office th pledge is violatisl and set at naught, and the attempt is made lo forisj the amend- nent upon us. I sav that it is a fraud Applause, i it is a fraud on the rtcpu Mi an party, and through them a traud ou the H-ople. I know it is said we must let bygoirt-s I m hvgvhos; that ws must accept hu situation OI things which resulted from the war; that we must accept ali the haugea that nave neon Drought aoout; hat we must look forward to the future. .otod is more anxious than 1 to ger o er the questions, to pass by the questions. bat have been left to us as a legacy by lie war uist closed. liul shall we submit to an innovation like this the most dan gerous which was ever attempted m any period of our national history, the moat centralizing, the most calculate! to hang" our tr.c institutions mto an im penal despotism, and to take away the nosl sacred riguls or mo pcoi,i ot Amer ica. Now, are we to look forward to an event which mav never happen, and ought never to happen, and announee our leteruuuation tieloreliand to accept it; or are we as a party to stand, as w c have ever stood, for the right, and accept the wrong when we we must, and not liefore. Great applause. The Democ racy, true to their traditions, have in all itues past been in favor of enlargiiu; the franchise and extending it to all those members of society w ho were capable of oenig aiuaigaiuaiisi wiin society, and uc- come incorporate with it as part of oue homogeneous mass. Applause. The Democracy have never been in favor of creating castes in this country, or allow ing caste to be created. If there is a race among us bet ween whom and us God and nature have set a barrier that n irreversible, who cannot be admitted into the sacred and holy relations of domestic life, who cannot marry our children, and whom our children cannot marry; if such a race exist in this country, it fa a caste, and to that the Iiemocracy is tinfavorably diaposed. It might be of no consequence if this broad aud tsstuliful country were dominated over by an aristocracy or au imperial despotism of what quality or character the men who labor and toil' are; but when we attempt tr. establish this continent a commonwealth of freemen in which all adults (male) shall participate equally in the powers of the government, it ia a matter of indisputable necessity that we have uo castes which we caii avoid, and that we guard carefully how we admit others Into aocisl and political partnership with ua. If Republican Oov- ernmeut I mean Kepublu-anuovernnicnt in the good old sense of Democracy rf free institutions are lo continue to exist, it ia because we are able to elevate aud to educate the masses of our people. Our ancestors taught u that lesson. It is a nart ! try . in. -' ) I to-day believe, and yon to day beJWivo, it sa Washington and Jeffer son taught it. W ith resricct to the African race now among us, we must deal with them in a spirit of Christian humanity, and in a lib eral construction of the obligations of n government which is just to all who are embiac d ithin its jurisdiction. The only bum the negro race his to suffrage here arises from the fad that they are natives to tho soil. They were brought here by an act which the civilised world is now unanimous in denouncing as a crime. They are here, and we are to deal with the question of suffrage to them in a practical spirit, and on our principle to leave each State to deal with that question aa that State thinks best. The Democracy of New York lias always been liberal in its policy on this subject ; it has refused to withdraw the subject of suffrage from any, or to narrow the rule by which any have gained it; but it protests against the doctiinethat any Chinaman or African has a right to come into thia country and claim suffrage as a national right, and enter into com plete political partnership w ith us without our consent. We reject this doctrine, just as we wonld reject that doctrine that any one of them would have the right to come in and enter injo a partnership in a pri vate business. We seject tbat doctriue aa we would reject the doctrine tbat an African or a negro has a right to marry our daughter without our consent arid without hers. The great social compact is not a voluntary com pact on one side, and compulsory on the other, aud we deny the principle that the Chinaman and the negro have each a right to enter into it with us, and that we shall have no choice to say whetheror not we will enter into it with them. We say there is a reciprocity in the relation, re ciprocity in the right to accept or to de cline it. I know that the Democracy has been charged with being opposed to pro gress (old fogies 1, and that its claim to he . ..nsidered the real party of lilieral and humane and progressive principles has been denied. The Democracy has under taken to provide for all, according to our idea of our system of government, and to carry out the ideasoffreedom to the largest possible extent, but they respect the char acter and would defend' the intorosts and rights of white labor, and thev feel that we should 1)0 cautious of any policy that would impair cither. While you nnd some speculative tinkers who really be lc i e t he theory thev nrotess. and arc u doubt actuated by the most sincere and philanthropic motives as a general tlilui if vou take one of your Republican friont aside and talk with him on the question of suffrage. In five minates h will tellynu he does not think the poor white ought t vote, and bv the same logical necessity which determines the Democracy to stan by and defend and protect the suffrage of the common white man. Those who do not believe in it are willing to degrade what they would rejoieetodeatroy. Applause The corruptions of politicians, the public plunderings, the peculation and defalcations are not frw. But w could wish these things might be con fined to the arenas of the officials and the outlaws and not invade also the churches and colleges of the land We regret to say that two instances of corruption and breaches of onieial trust have been discovered in a defal cation of some of the officers of the Northern Methodist Book Concern and also of one of the Board of Direc tors of Brown University. The Book Concern is despoiled of some $350,000 and the college of SloO,000. A land grant, estimated at $1,000,000, is sup posed to have all disappeared but $50, 000. It is difficult to see how the blame is to be restricted to any single individual, since the fund has been disappearing for a considerable time Wat have some earnest friends to constitutional liberty, we are glad to know, among the moderate Bepubli cans of the North, and one among those was Gen. ltAWi.i.ss. As one of the Cabinet advisers, almost his last strength and breath was spent in resistence to the schemes of his less conservative and more revolutionary and imiH-rial coadjutors. The New York World states on information that At the last session of the Cabinet, a ma tured plan to coerce the South into the support of the extremists was presented Gen. Rawlins was the last around tin board lo speak. He was there against the protest of his physicians. It i9 likely that the terrific blow'with which, in emphasis, of his words, his feeble fist struck the table, cracked his helirt-strings I tell you, gentlemen, youaran't do it." Thk Weekly Appeal will be ready for subscribers on Wednesday morning. Merchants and others de siring to communicate with and com pliment their country friends, can accompli'ih their object hatulsomely and creditably by sending them copies of our mammoth weekly, the sub scription price of w hich is as low as that of the great New York weeklies which it equals in size and amount of reading matter. THE SENATORSHIP. Shall it Be Andrew Johnson Emerson Etheridge? or .... What a Tennesseean Thinks of An drew Johnson. IS MR. JOHNSON THE MAN rOK SENATOR? Editor Appeal: The advocates of An drew Johnson represent him as having suffered vicariously for the South, as a niartvr in defense of the Constitution therefore, sav they, he should Is sent back to tho Senate, that he may flay alive the audacious despots who arc forcing governments upon an unwilling people bv the use ol the sword, vt o grant tnat Congress is truly obnoxious to this barge, and that others equally grave and alarming might be truthfully made against that laxly. It would be difficult lor Mr. Johnson or any other person to xaggerale the cruel usurpations ot the I oderal (.tovcrnmeiit since the termina tion of tho war. Bui if there is a uiau in or out of the State 'whose arraignment and inculpation of the Government at i astungioii is wholly luettectual for good, that man Is" Mr, Johnson. And this would tc so were he a person of great moral power, of scholarly attainments. well versed in political science, and thor oughly acquainted w-ith the Constitution and laws of his country. We ignore the lact, patent to everybody, that within the last leu years he has been uutrue lo all lornvr professions. Tho bare proposition to send him to the Senate, now or at any time, as the champion of op position to Executive or Congressional usurpation, is an insult to all intelligent menwnowre laminar wim nis count less usurpations, while he was military Gov ernor, and especially while be was acting l'residcni. The messages which ware sent to Congress over his signature in ISfIT "8, and which are falsely claimed to have been written by him, were bristling with anathemas against that body for its wan ton violations of the Constitution. Kverr speech which he delivered in the State last tamer whan he was exhibiting his wounds, and asking " nothing but a little earth for charity " was a denunciation of Congress tor its disregard of the require ments and inhibitions of the Constitution. We have no defense to offer for Congress; wo abhor its reconstruction measures, and he studied cruelty of those who were re sponsible for their enforcement. But has ongress. at any time, attempted to exer- ise despotic powers which Mr. Johnson had not previously claimed and exercised for himself? Has Congress imposed any burdens, res- raintsor indignities upon the Southern States or people, which had not beeu pre viously imposed by Mr. Johnson himself? Can he point to ono infraction of the Constitution by Congress, which-has not he excuse or precedent established bv himself? Did Congress or any Northern function ary, including It. t . liutler, during the war or sinei its clone, display a meaner I irit of revenge toward individuals e South than Mr. Johnson has exhibited atuce the surrender of the Confederate ariniesT Let facts which are already re corded, and which have passed into his- lory, furnish answers to these questions. We propose fairly to compare thf official eondui-t of President Jamison with the action ot Congress. The final quarrel be tween him and his Republican allies orig i lated in a dispute as to the right of either or ' it li to insnlt, hang or govern the per -pie of the conquered States. He insisted that he had the exclusive right to do so; that having at least six months start in tho matter, Coi.gn-ss should sanction all his usurpations. His right thus to rule the Southern States was not only denied by Congress, but that body claimed the solo txiwer of doiug what Mr. Mohnson bad done. Congress triumphed over the President, since when he has been uu sparing in his abuse of that body for usurpations which he unblushingly com mitted himself. Eah party the President and Congress has bad a " policy." From the death of Lincoln in April, 1865, until the follow ing December, the President was wholiy unrestrained, for Congress was not In session, and he alone had the power to conveneit. The President, therefore, wts autocrat of the conquered States. Being commander-in-chief of the army and navy, and claiming and exercising the power oi suspending the writ of habeas corpus in presence of the Supreme Court, and iu all the States, Wis power was absolute, aud we assert that during the brief inter val between the death of Liuculn and the meeting of Congress, he was himself guilty of more inexcusable crimes, more acts of savagery, more displays of bitter ness and revenge, more flagrant viola tions of individual rights and usurpation of power, than he can lay at ibp door of a Itadical Cougress since that time. Johnson has always maintained that tho rebellious States were never oat of the Union, yet he treated them as conquered provinces. The Congress, more logical, regarded the Confederacy as a ife aeto Government, and agreed, with Mr. John son, that they were subject to the will of the conqueror. Johnson attempted o excuse his usurped authority, by saying that he was engagisi in an effert to furnish the Southern States "a repub lican form of government." The RaUical Congress replied that it was none of his business, and cited the 4th section of the 4th article of the Constitution, as follows: The United Slates shall guarantee to every State in this Cnion a republican form of Koverment. But Mr. Jobiison and Congress were agreed that the South ern States had never had government of a " republican form." They were agreed that these Stales slrr-uld be forced to change their goveriimeut. The quarrel was as to who should be the absolute mas ter Congress or the President. Johnson claimed and exercised the right to appoint Governors for the South ern States. Congress denied his author ity, and provided for an election, in which not one-tenth as many were denied the ballot as were excluded from the pills in Tennessee under the late Stato govern ment created by hiuiseif. Under John son's ' policy " we had Holden, Joe Brown and Brownlow. Under the policy of Congress we have Walker in Virginia. Johnson ordered an election lor mem bers of the Legislature throughout the South. Congress has pro-rided for the same thing in the reconstruction laws. Johnson ordered the Legislatures elect ed under his proclmatiuns, to change their Stale Constitution so as to abolish and prohibit slavery; to ratify the Four teenth Amendment, inter listing slavery in all the States and Territories; and to repudiate all debts contracted in aid of the rebellion. Congress, not to be outdone by him, orders the rebellious Statesto rat ify the Fifteenth Amendment. Johnson claimed and exercised the pow er of removirsjl and appointing all State officers, from Alderman down to Govern or. It was frequently done with no more formality than a telegram. Tho case of Raphael Sernmes, of Mobile, is in point. He was elected Comit y J udse by t he people at an election ordered by Mr. Johnson, but the latter telegraphed to the military authorities that Semmes should not have tho otlice, and appointed another person. Congress hasonly substituted the military commander of the district for tho Presi dent. That officer, under an act of Con gress, now exercises the despotic power which Mr. Johnson claimed for himself. .lohson asserted and exercised the pow er, after the war, of organizing military commissions, outside the rebel states, for the trial of obnoxious persons, who had never been in any military service, who had never been on rebel soil, and whf were aceuseM of ordinary offenses. This, too, where the courts Had been always open, and wn--ro tne civil functionaries were willing, able and ready to trv the accused. Congress has conferred this power upon the militiary commanders of military districts, but they are confined to the unreconstructed rebel States. Congress has not provided for murderous military commissions to try women in the District of Columbia, or for transporting citizens ofTennessee to Ken tucky to be tried by these lawless tribu nals. Mr. Johnson, after the war, became the champion of military commissions. He convened one in the District of Columbia for the trial of u iroman. The members of the commission were selected rn- himself. Upon her arraignment she was insulted and mocked as no female prisoner has been since the days of Alice Lisle. She was denied counsel, refused the common est privileges of the Constitution and laws.kept in ftiains during the trial, con demned without proof and ordered imme diately to the scaffold. This occurred in the city o;' Washington, after the surren der of the rebel armies, where au armetl rebel had never been seen; where the courts h id tioen continuously .open since tne British had occupied theciryin 1814; while the Chief Justice was in the citv. and the Judges of the Circuit Court ot the I ".strict or Columbia ready and willing to try the prisoner, ine legal profession all intelligent, solier persons, were appalled! A wtirain, a Christian wo man, was about toll - executed without law! That execution would be murder. A Republican judg" determined to make an effort to save her life. At the instance of her friends a writ of habeas corpus was issued by this judge. He knew that it was a writ of right, a privileged Consti.u lional writ, and that to refuse it was to become a perjurer and a murderer. The writ was placed in theands of the Mar shal of the District of Columbia. At this junclure Mr. Johnson suspended the writ, nothing more could be done. Ihe juotg-' was surrounded by Mr. Johnson's bayonets. Me uttered a jecble pretest and adjourned his court. In a few irx- knestta this woman, as all thoughtful men then admitted, all lawyers knew, and as the Supreme Court has since decided, was publicly murdered in the presence of a mob. Congress has suspended the writ of habeas corpus only in the unroi-on- structed States, but it bos provided for an appeal to tho Supremo Court. But for this Verger's bodv would, ere this, have been rotting in the Yazoo swamps. The quarrel lietween Congress and Johnson did not originate in principle; it was oi joaiousy. -ui saiisueu witn Doing naiie i'resnlent bv Uncnin s death, aud unable to live without beiug in office, or a csudidate, he set about to reelect himself. fenuessee had been reconstructed bvhim. Under Brownlow it was safe. His object was to reconstruct the other rebel States iu his own interests. This motlveexiiiains his appointment of such men as Holden tnd Joe Brown. lie t-It unsafe with the Republican party of the North, for thev were restive under the shame and humil iation thev were compelled to endure when Johnson was inducted in the Viee- Presldencv. He wished to be nominated; hev determined he should not. Discov ering this, he began to talk of the rights of the Stales. Finally, they road bimout of the Republican ranks. He protested tgsinst this, and labored for two years to buildup a third parly. To this end he endeavored to make the Philadelphia Coi - vention subservient. His motives were quickly discerned, and from that moment ue Convention sanK out oi sight; under his auspices it was powerless. We next lind him in the New York Convention, isking Democrats to nominate him for the Presidency over George H. Pendleton? They were rivals for the Vice-Presidency onlv four years before Pendleton on the Democratic ticket with McClellan, and ohnson on the Black Republican ticket with Lincoln. Pendleton's friends should have said to him: " Foi r years ago Mr. Pendleton was vour rival for the Vice Presidency. Conscrva- ives and Democrats in Tennessee organ ized an electoral ticket, pledged to vote for him and against you. Upon that ticket were the names of some of her moat prominent citizens Bailie Peyton, Emer son Eiheridgo and others, tou had pre viously organized a ticket pledged to vote for yourself; vou were tHu Military Gov- raor of the State. Seeing that, in anv fair election, the State was overwhelm- ngly against you, you resorted to the vilest means to dcleat the will of the peo ple; you promulged a horrible test-oath, which no Christian gentleman could take. A distinguished patriot attempted to speak in the city or Nashville, where yonr headquarters were and where vou held nightly revel to speak in behalf of this are.
