Iu tbe pursuit of that good we regard it our duty to note carefully the seta of our rublic men and deolar what we believe to be their dtlinqu'Dcies judged by party principles aod precedents. If the Tri bune would have a party it must do like wire, if not, we may reasonably expect to find it ere long pursuing the tarn's foluus of independency. Party dii dp line ia nect a3ary to pi rty eucccss and Integrity, and parties are essential to tho maintenance of a Just and fair adminis tratlon of tbe affairs of government We endeavor to keep these cardinal principles alwayi before us, and to act up to them; when we wander from them, especially to suppoit any ore man, who, instigated thereto by whim caprice or eel f-ln teres t, breaks through or opposes them, tbe Tribune can repea its snetr of our possible change with tbe moan. And, by tho way, regarding that suggestion of change, it ii very funny that both the Avalanche which Witches ui as a cat dees a mouse and the Knoxvillo Chronicle the one an 'independent journal'' and the other Radical should recognizs our political consistency bo far as to insist that we indorse anything and everything labelid "Democracy."

Vp- Fill APRIL 14. 1870. ROUTWLXL, KEY, LA HI A ft AND SUM M'.lt. The locum tenms of the Chattanooga Times persiflis In mitrepreeenting the Appeal. Siwh unfairness might be ex pected horn a Republican, or Eome new convert, but it is unaccountable in a Democratic paper with which we have co-operated In national and State po.I tie. The Times, of Tuesday morning lat, repeats the slander which we have already exposed. Itays: "The Mem phis Appeal is trying to defraud itself into the belief that it was and Is a great admirtr of the late Senator Andrew Johnson. It will probably succeed in humbugging itself, Lut will baldly de ceive thoee who read it a year ago last winter." Wo again denounce this alle gation as untrue. We made no war upon Andrew Johnson pending the eeafttoril election in the Tennessee legislature. We publkhed the two speeches he made in Memphis, and the editorial comments on bis election and liis death proves how grossly the Times misrepreseats the Appeal. We quote again from the Times. It says: "sen ator Hey ie by no means the first mem ber of congress who has been sccuced of betraying his party and section ' by showing courtesy to extreme Republi cans. Mr. Lamar got that sort cf a hoi net'd nest about his ears for the beauti ful tiibute he paid to the integrity and ability of Charles Sumner. Tbe sober second thought of Mississippi answered this attack on her most gifted citizen, by eeLdlng him to the house first, and then cho king him to represent the State in the fconate. We have a notion that Key will meet a like fate." Lamar was nev er abused for "the beautiful tribute he paid to the integrity and ability of ChailM Sumner." The Appeal in dorsed hia eulogy, and in favoring the election of Lapasr to the senate, in Jan uary last, gave this as one of the reasons why ho should bo elected. But thsic-5o a vast dill'erenee between Bum H9C ad Boutwel'. Limar and the BMilhern people eulogized Sumner be caueo be wai the friend of the south, aad had sacrificed hia popularity with ibeRadicil party and the fanatics of the north; I cause lie dared to denounce the oppressions, usurpation?, persecutions, wrongs and outrages which such ex treme men as Boutwell had visited upon the south. Our p&ople are magnani mous, just aad generous, and when Horace Greeley and Charles Sumner became tho defenders of the southern people, and for doing so, were calum niated sod slandered to the grave, they won the gratl( ude and love of the peo ple they labored to shield from robbery and oppression. Lamar did eulogize Suanrt but he will never beslobber Routwell with fulsome compliments. Blaine, ia the house of representatives, entertains the same hatred for the south which Boutwell hat manifested in the senate. Has Lamar ever eulogizsd Blaine, licked the hand thst has so oi ten sian dered and chastised his peo ple? Surely not. On the con trary, Lamar never lets an cceasion ps without adminis tering a caustic rebuke to tbie unscrupulous enemy and slanderer of the etwthern peopla. The south can af ford to praiee her friends such men n? Banks, Greeley ami Sumner; but when she compliments her enemies such men as Boutwell and Blaine, she be comes contemDtible lick-spittle un worthy of respect The eou- hern people are imbued with a proud, liberal and fraternal sentiment, and they have no compliments for the fpiteful and fanat ical demagogues who eeek to secure and retain power by appealing to the prejudices and itassious of tbe war. Even the people of Massachusetts do not indorse the extreme views, tho nar row aad vindictive Fentiments tx preesed by tbe fanatic for whom Senator Key uttered eoch honied words. The sjHlh waste peace; such a peace as Greeley and Gordon, Sumner, Lamar and Banks have labored. Tho states manship of the hour has but one high duty to ptrf.rm Uiat of uaitiag tho northern and southern people in a cor dial and ecduriDg IrjtherhooJ. This patriotic work can be accomplished without a cowardly, cringing policy. The Washington correspondent of the Kncxville ZHcntncsoys: Senator Key is a man who keeps his own counsel. He told mo to-day that ho asked Senator Thurman to vote for tbo resolution when it was first intro duced, but Mr. Thurman objected. Mr, Key paid nothing thereafter of his in tentien to speak until the time came. The Republican managers had intended to cloaa trie debate with tfruc&'s speech, and tho effect of Senator Kev'sremark coming at the cloae of the debate, vus to taue me wind out or ine ltadical sails, Senator Key feels confident of the strength or his position, and feels ture that ho Is tustained by the people. He respects the opposition of tho Bourbon element, but he is not the man to be tie lerred from what he thinks to be right ny any opposition. Senator Key will find out otherwise, With the whole Democratic delegation in congress, and a majority of the Dam ocratic pres3 of his Stato and of the Union against him, we jannot see how he can, even' for a moment, hug himself the notion that the people are with him. The Damocratio people at least are opposed to congressional Inves tigations or inte.'erence with the affairs of any State, and for that reason, if no other, would ba opposed to Senator Key, Viewed In any light, his position on the Christiaucy-Morton resolutions is inde fensible, and hia vote cannot bo ex plained away. ihe JNfienviiie American announces that the state treasurer is now prepared to cash all warrants on presentation This is the first time, it eays, since 1868 or 1869 that the State ireesury has been in such conditicn. This, says Ihe Knoxville Tribune, pertinently enough is all well enough and very encourag' mg, but nothing astounding in view of the fict that the Slate pays no interest on her public debt. The Nashville Banner charges Blaine with seduction, and tbe Boston Post charges bim with smuggling. Next thing in order is fjr the ex-speaker to rise up and explain. nnilroad EnrninsrM.

The Davenport Democrat gives an ac count of a little ropt which tne Tennes see jubilee singers had at Strawberrv Point, Iowa, rfcently. It says: c,They sang very well, to a fair audience of best citizens, and would have left a very good impression but for a row they had among themselves at the hotel on Sun day morning a regular family fight in which nearly all the troupe took a hand.

Apples, so far as heard from, promise a fair From the Kcgnlnr Correspondent cf tbe peai.j Washington, April 8. Loungers in the halls and galleries of the United Stales cspUol will be impressed with a significant change that has taken place during the comparatively short period that the forty-fourth congress has been in session. There Is a marked diminu tion of lobbyists and tho ticmi monde It may not be on account of tho vestal virtue of the present congress, but from eome cause they seem to have gone else whither. Yesterday the weather was fine, and, only a year ago, moved by such an atmosphere tho rotunda, lob bies and galleries would have glittered with the brassiest, most volatile and wickedest human potpourri that any terrestial nation can present. But tbe msgniflcent pilo was almost deeerted. I heard a young woman say that it seemed "lonesome." In going to the capitol from any of the large hotels, it Is convenient to take an ayenue car, which will land you near the western wing, the pait occupied by the house of representatives, then as cend the long flight of exterior stairs that you see to the left, in the pictures, open the bronze doors, and you will be in tho lobby of the floor of tho house. Write your name on a scrap of paper and send it by the door-keeper to your member; he will be euro to come and show you around, providing ne is net in a committee-room, conducting an In vestigation, or out taking a drink of tea, or something like it But if you are a journalist, that is, a newspaper man or woman, you will ascend ano'h r grand fl'ght of rr r.'n'ir? !o your right and look through the gless doors of the gallery to that part reserved for reporters, which Is over the speaker's chair and facing the house. This glance at the reporters' gallery may save you tho labor of mak ing tne entire exterior circuit of the hall to reach it, for if it is not pretty well filled with tbe correspondents of the various papers represented here, you win snow at once mat tne center of in terest Is elsewhere. Yesterday the ttai lery was almost empty, and I listened only long enough to hear somo sopho moric statesman, speaking upon the Sandwich Island annexation bi'l, throw ing his arms around dangerously and say : "Mr. Speaker, if the United Slates sliouid annex tnese islands sne will be come the very brightest gem in the cor onet of nations." jyeeline a little sea sick after this, I went to tho senate gal lery. I heard Sanator Bogy, of Mis souri, who is an inoffensive speaker, and senator maxey, or Texas, who is not, debating the postal bill. 1 1 is not agree able to a patriot to hear a United States senator matte mistakes In the pronun elation of common words, and using euch language as "saving at the spigot anuwssungat tne Dung," anu mis is especially disagreeable aftet wo have given him an expensivo education at West Point. Such metaphors are odious. and odorous of groceries, distilleries and whisky-rings, They suggest a poverty ofcultureandan execrable taate, both in tbe senator and the legislature that sent mm Here, a rom the senate we will go to the room of the supreme court, where iub cmei-jusuue tus ju a ensir, naniteu on either side by the four aseociate ius- tices, all robed in black silk gowns like tno e worn ny episcopal ministers. Chief Justice Waite gives the impres sion of a man, dszsd by unexpected promotion, making a martyr-like effort to oaiance nimseir ana appear judicial ly composed upon tne nieuth to which he has been boosted, while the eight as sedate justices appear sullen and in a muff because a man of such little legal ceieonty wa3 promoted over tuem. Physically and facially the chief iuslico is not a bad figure head, and, come to think of it, President Grant has made but rew, If any, mistakes from a physic al point of view in his official selec tions. Nearly all of his cabinet and other appointees are distineuished either ior8ttture or nreautn or chest, stomach, or buttocke. Secretary Fish is of the raw-boned, angular style of beauty, but he has the inches aud avoirdunois. The secretary cf the navy, the antithesis of mis type, is so completely made up of curves that he has been christened the Rotund." Bess Shepherd called the postmaster generel a little bob-t&iled clJtn Yankee, but Mr. Jewell will weigh a9 much as the herculean Boss. Cband ler is fully bIx feet in bight and well proportioned, while the recent secretary of war had a collossal figure that statu aries would love to copy. In Bhort, since Boutwell has gone, there is not one knock-kneed, hump-backeu, pot-bellied man among mem. But we have not quite done the caul tel, and will go to a little room in the western winu under tbe house of renre- sentatives. The door-keeper hesitatai to admit us, but we speak the magic name of our paper, and the door is opened with alacrity. Ah ! here ia the center of intnrfisr. wa have found the oorreanonrt ents and reporters at last. At tho end of long tauie. covered with blank nil. ciotn, sits the chairman of tho commit tee on war claims, Mr. Ciymer. The otuor gentlemen of the committee are on his right.
