CntoTMc-tiiiK T.nue In lt uw and -westera extremities. Almost touching Georgia, peeping 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 ted States, and the cott cot up to the estimate of pablio works now in progress, of merely local influ ence, of doubtful utility, and which ia no event add a aingle blade of grass to the prod actions of the United States. 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 figures. 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.

From the Press and Tim" 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 criminal proceedings. "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 rush towards the woods and tho bushes, ikes aro torn off by the branches, sepul chral attire whisked into ribbons and scat tered over tho ground furnishing for the morrow duo to the track of tho fugitives. 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 this event. 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 ever we feel quite confident, unless the Knklux ceaso meddling with the colored people wo fihall have othor events like the above to chronicle, yea, many of thein. brant on Xegro Snflta;?e. 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.
