through Alabama, washing the northern shore of
Misaiatippt, and finally crossing the State of Ken-tacky.
On the hore of thi river are grown every agri
cultural production (except sugar) that is known to
the commerce of the United States. Grain, cotton
and tobacco are grown successfully in their respec
tive climate from Knoxville to Paducah. All tho
mineral are found in grout abundance on the
shore, for eight hundred miles of its length, and
every kind of timbers that grow between tho lati
tude of 2i and 37 i fonnd, either cn tho rivor
bank or within a few Kile of it.
In consideration of the foregoing fact, the u
dersigned delegate from Colbert countv, Ala., are
BoraewiruT ccmpeiiea 10 conciuae, mat, but for the
difficulty and uncertainty cf the navigation of tho
Tennessee river, it would be as important in a com
mercial and national point of view, as the Ohio, and
carry to market a great variety of the productions
of the earth, both vegetable and mineral. The
same reasoning which brings our minds to believe
that the removal of the obstruction in the Tennes
see river would add to the wealth of tho nation,
force them to the conclusion that it should be done.
We have not kept out of view the most important
consideration ia this, as well as in all other enter
prises, viz, the possibility of its being done, whether
or cot the nation was capable of doir.p; the work,
and also its probable cost. We thick the work can
be done, that it is withia the capacity cf the Uni

pablio works now in progress, of merely local influ

The undersigned have some practical knowledge
of the Tennessee river, from the foot of the Muscle
Shoals to Paducah, a distance of three hnndrfHl
miles. W know the nature and extent of -.i ct
struetien?, and also the injury to commerce and ag
riculture consequent thereon, but will not trouble
the convention with details which can be better
seen from old, as well as recent surveys of the river.
We, however, beg leave to state that when freight
were carried through from New Orleans to Knox
ville, via Tennessee rivor, the Colbert hoa!i) cost
ono-elgbth and the Muscle shoal one-fourth of the
entire expense of delivering goods in Enoxville
from New Orleans; and further, that the Colbert
shoal alone have cost, within thirty years, the in
habitants cf five counties ia Alabama, over one
million of dollars in lighterage up and down, on tb
small amount of commerce that was able to sur
mount the obstructions below it From the cost to
commerce and agriculture cf one mile cf shoals in
a liver one thousand miles long, it is easy to see
that the various obstructions from tho mouth to the
head of navigation in the Tennessee river must
b&ve Injured commerce and agriculture to an
amount that would seem incredible if set forth in
Presuming that the respective counties from Mus
cle Shoals to Knoxville will be represented ia the
convention, we confine ourselves to observations as
to that part of the river best known to us ; but, at
the same time, we are ready to give assistance to
anything useful, practicable or just, which may be
brought before the convention.

A KIKLUX KILLED.
Terrible Ketributlon-A Gnus; or Armed
and Masked Trowlers Demand Ad
mlttanec to the Ilonse or a Colored
3Ian He shoots one or them Down.
At last has come what we expected long
since, ana what the lorbearanco cl Lmcn
people, white and colored, haa put off dur
ing a period of time readily astonishing.
One of that armed band of miserable
scoundrels who prowl about the country,
threatening, and robbing the colored peo
ple, has been shot down while he and his
gan were engaged in their lawks; and
"We wonder now if the Conservative pa
pers will deny that the Kuklux sneak about
the country in the unhallowed business of
stealing from the freedmen. A Kuklux has
been kuled, laid low by tho bullet of a brave
colored man who had courage to defend his
homo from the assaults of reckless villains.
After long forbearance ; after submitting
to threats, to beatings, to abuso of all kind3,
to robbery, to death even in some instances,
tho cokixu people have appealed to tho
right of self-defense, and one cf their per
secutors has paid a fearful pesalty. Clad
in the ghostly habiliments of his order,
with tho mask and the distorted, exagge
rated hat coming down low over his face,
with his revolver at his side, this first vic
tim was found in the cold gray light of
morning, 6tifT and stark, where he fell.
Let us givo tho particulars of tho affair :
Eob Anderson, a colored man, has been
threatened by tho Kuklux Klan. Tho
members of tho conclave evidently don't
like him and would as hef do tho poor
freedraan a mischief as not. Anderson
lives on tho Lebanon pike about fivo miles
from Xashville, and near the little hamlet
of McWhirtersville. It's an isoted cabin
standing removed from the highway, and
upon tho banks of a little creek. It's a
lonely spot, and no fear of help coming if
a band of villains should see fit to break
into his cabin and beat or murder its in
mates. Tho Kuklux settled it that poor Bob
shall bo tho victim of their cruelty. They'll
punish him well, they'll learn him who is
to rule, the'll sco if this is a white man's
government or whether it is not. Tuesday
night at tho dark hour of midnight the
gang, probably numbering eight or ten,
though only four were seen, approached
silently the solitary cabin bravo business
that in which the scoandrels aro engaged
and knocked at the door, demanding in
solemn sepulchral tones admittance to the
interior. The colored man peers frighten
ed through the window and sees four white
figures standing outside wrapped in white
sheets, and with tall whito hats upon their
heads j fear seizes the inmates of tho cabin.
The colored man knows what it all means.
He is'nt far from being bound and beaten
as in tho old slave times. IIo fears for his
family; thty might all bo murdered. Bravo
follow, ho don't lose his presence of mind,
however, warns tho scoundrels away. They
outside repeat their demands for admit
tance, accompanied by threats. Tho bar
rel of an Enfield riflo in the hands of tho
frcedman is thrust forth through an opening
there is a sharp report, a mortally wounded
man gives a sharp, quick cry, reels back
ward, runs a few yards, and falls to riso no
more. His companions aro gone ; quick as
tho flash and tho cry; their whito sheets
flutter in the wind as with fleet strides they

3Icrning comes and dispels tho colored
man's fears. He goes forth and finds the
body undisturbed, whero it, full mask,
winding sheet, revolver strapped at his side
all aro there. Tho alarm is quickly given,
neighbors come up and the body is recog
nized as that of a young man named Henry
C. Blair, who lived in the neighborhood.
'Sqair Jerry BoV'on held an inquest upon
tho remains yesterday, and they were then
turned over to his friends. The jury ren
dered a verdict of death from a gun-shot
wound, caused by an Enfield rifle, in tho
hands of Bob Bndcrson.
It need hardly bo Btated that there is
much excitement in that community over
Tho companions of Blair in this Kuklux
expedition are still unknown, so far as our
informant was aware. What may bo the
upshot of this matter, we shall not take tho
liberty of predicting. Of ono thing, how

At the Massachusetts Republican Con
vention, last week, the Hon. D. W. Gooch,
in the course of a speech, made the follow
ing very importaut statement:
Early in April last, immediately alter tho
adjournment cf the first scicn of the pre
sent Congress, I called on Gcntr.'il Gnmt,
at his office in Washington. He had that
morning been informed cl the question
proposed to be raised by the President and
Attorney-General in relation to tho Iecon
Etruction Act, then jut passed. After sta
ting them, he rcwarked, " Congress ought
not to have adjourned without some pro
vision by which it ceuld assemble at any
time " and also added, "They have passed
laws by which ten States are to to rccon
ttructed, and it is reasonable to suppose
that some further legislation may bo neces
sary."' 1 then said to him, "Ttrhaps this
is net the first time we havo suffered be
cause Congress wa not in eeion when it
ought to have been." Ho asked to what I
referred. I replied that I always thought
there should have been a session of Con
gress immediately after the overthrow of
the rebel armies." Ho assented, and I ad
dod further. "If thcro had been, it is pos
sible that the present conflict between the
Executive antl Conp-eM tniht havo l-n

Tha Oxford, (Obio,) Ciiutn gives the details of a
tragody which recently occurred near Mount Car
mel, Franklin county, Indiana. Tbey are aa ro
mantic a anything which novelist havo invented.
A young girl, the daughter of wealthy parent:, was
educated at one of tho seminaries in Oxford, and it
wa tho intention of ber parent that htt tbould
make a Uii.ch that would givo her a high position
in the world. She fell in love, however, with a
young farmer who was quite poor. The parents
forbade her to have anything to ay to him, but
they managed to exchange letter through the as
sistance of a young minister. Finally tbey proposed
to elope, but the go-between became enamorod of the
lady, and prevailed on her to run off with him in
stead of the farmer. They eloped and wore mar
ried. Tho grief of tho farmer knew no bounds.
Determined upon revenge, he armed himself with
a revolver and awore that the young divine hould
die for hi treachery. A couple of weeks ago the
rivals met, and the farmer openly shot down tho
di.-.troyer f hi happiness.

JiEMoiBATic Estimate of Soldiers. Tho
Washington (Pa.) Jcffersonian, a staunch
oran cf democracy, declaims in this wise
against Sherman's nomination by that party
for the Presidency :
For six years tho democracy has felt hu
miliated and ashamed of itself, because
forced into a wrong position. It has been
a hypocrite and a liar through the war.
