The negro members of tho Georgia Legislature twenty-five in number have been ejected from their seats, on the ground of constitutional ineligibili ty. The new Constitution confers on the negro tho right to vote, but not to hold office. The vote for ejecting stood 80 to 23. The Atlanta Intelligencer thus says of what followed tho announce ment of the vote : Turner rose and said he hoped the De mocracy would pay him for his services tip to to-day, that ho expected ultimate ly to get his pav for all the time Legis lature remained here. (The Democrats cried out, you shall be paid.) Porter (negro) from Chatham, offered a protest, which was signed by all the colored members and ten white niem . bers. There being some irrelavent mat ter in it, ho was advised to withdraw it, which he did for the purpose of cor recting it. It will be presented to-morrow. Turner requested the llouso to re main sitting while he retired. The House did so. Tho colored members then walked out, headed by Turner, who said that in imitation of Christ he would brush the dust oft' of his feet (suiting the action to the word.) "Washing-ton Gossip. Washington dispatches state that a new idea has been broached by certain Southern politicians in favor of allow ing every native and naturalized citizen of the United States in the reconstruct ed States the right to vote in the coming Presidential election. The idea is, brief ly, that tho constitutional amendment of the Constitution, known as article fourteen, only deprives of the right to hold office such persons as, anterior to the rebellion, took an oath to support the Constitution, and afterward engaged in the rebellion, or gave aid and com fort to tho enemy. By referring to the article it will be noticed that not a word is said about the right of such persons to vote, and hence Southern politicians contend that they have not been depriv ed of that right by tho new amendment. The Senators Who Voted Against Impeachment. A "Washington letter speaking of the Senators who voted against impeach ment says : I shall not assume that any of them will openly favor the democratic nomi nees, but that some of them will un ciously contribute to their success is inferable. Senator Fowler, by the violence of his Radical persecutors, has been driv en so far from participating in any sym pathy with his party as to be disquali fied from contributing to its support. Under such circumstances he will sur vive its defeat. Senator Grimes is quietly enjoying the watering places, an indifferent spec tator of the strifo for power. Senator Ilendorson is looking on in Missouri, with the possible chance of seeing his State sustain his impeach ment vote. It is conceded that Mr. Van "Winkle is powerless in Virginia, and that his State will bo Democratic. la the face of continued denuncia tions, Mr. Fesseudon will bo passive ; and for tho samo reason, and in view of his lato alllictiou, Senator Trumbull will not participate in tho canvass.

The Legislature. Loyalty boiled over again in tho low er branch of tho Legislature on the 2d, when it went back on its previous ac tion coinciding in Senate resolution to send a committee to confer with the President, etc. A messago was sent to the Senate requesting that body to re turn said joint resolution. In the Senato on tho 3d Mr. Elliott moved: That tho Senate inform the House that tho request contained in the message could not be complied with as it was now beyond tho jurisdiction of Urn Senate. The motion was) adopt ed by the following vote : Ayes Aldridgc, Catc, Eckel, Elliott, Frierson, Fuson, Garner, Henderson, Lindsley, Lyle, McCall, Norman, Pat terson, Parker and Underwood 15.

"Whereupon tho House stultified it self by adopting the following, having first consumed tho best part of the day in wrangling over it: Resolved bv the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, That Senate joint resolution No. 10 be and the same is hereby revoked. In tho Senato Mr. Underwood oiler ed the following bill in lieu of the House Military Hill : AX ACT to revive an act passed February 20, 1SG7, to organize ami equip a State Guard and for other purposes: Section 1.

"Wo are informed, on good authority, that the carpet-baggers, scalawags, and their electioneering lieutenants, white and black, have sought to produce tho impression among the colored men that if tho Democratic parly carries tho elec tion, in November, they will again be reduced to slavery. This wilful and'malicious falsehood is intended to work upon the apprehen sions of the colored people. Its audac- itv is onlv equalled bv its untruth a bold, bad and base1 attempt to practice upon the ignorance anil credulity ot those whom the Radicals arc trying to use lor their own bencht anil the ulu mate destruction of their poor dunes. Tho colored people should be made to understand the game and Us vile and untouuded deception. 1 heir old mas ters gavo up slavery with ''the lost cause," and in the State Conventions held in 1805, put their stamps and seals upon its termination in each Southern State. The platform of the Democratic partv, in its first paragraph, recognizes and declares "the question of slavery set tled for all time to come." 'I lie white peo pie of the South wish the blacks to pur sue their happiness ns treeilmen, with none to molest or to make them afraid. They wish to live on the best terms, for tliev have kind lceiings and Know ineir val ue as a portion of the populal ion. Mu tual interest and mutual regard with all the protection law can afford in person and in property, is the status proposed, and upon which every guarantee is given. Those Blessed Results. The great argument of the Itadieals seems to be this: If Grant is not elec ted tho results of the lato war will be lost. , The results which these precious pat riots are so anxious to keep, may be catalogued as follows : Negro outrages in the South. Stealing and defaulting by Govern men tofllcers. Enormous taxation. An overwhelming public debt, High prices for all the necessaries of life. A depreciated currency. A general stagnation in business. A total lack of confidence in Govern met it. And a Pandora's box full of social and political evils, all growing out of the lato war. Those who wish to preserve theso results, and multiply them year by year, will vote lor Uraut. Mrs. Surratt and Gen. Hunter.

' THE CRISIS AT HOME. Views of Gen. Forrest and Others. A traveling correspondent of the leading llepublican paper of the "West, publishes a long account of what pur ports to be a frcc-and-cae y conversation with General Forrest, General Gid. Pil low, and other prominent "West Tenncs scf ans. It is in tho same familiar sort of stylo of those remarkable conversa tions with A. J., with which the same paper was filled some months ago. "We copy that portion in which Gen. Forrest is tho prominent feature. It will be seen that tho General is made to tell all about tho Kuklux, the number in this State and in tho South, objects of the organization, etc., and then to sny that he does not belong to the order, but sympathises with it. It is a pretty lit tle semi-romance, and will no doubt create a profound sensation among the " broad-stcrn'd Solons" of the House of Representatives, as Sam. Mercer in a happy moment styled the radical fire eaters of that body. Special Correspondence of the Cincinnati Com mercial. Memphis, Tcnn., August 28. To-day I have enjoyed " big-talks" enough to have gratified any of tho fa mous Indian chiefs who have been treat ing with Gen. Sherman for the two past years, lurst 1 met Gen. N. B. 1 orrost, then General Gideon J. Pillow and Go vernor Isham G. Harris. My first visit was to Gen. Forrest, whom I found at lus ollico at 8 o clock this morning, hard at work, although complaining of an illness cont racted at the e w ork Con vention. 1 he New Yorkers must boa hard set indeed, for I havo not met a single delegate from the Southern States who has not been ill ever since he went there. But to General Forrest. Now that the Southern people havo elevated him to the position ot their great leader and oracle, it mav not be amiss to pre late my conversation with linn with a brief sketch of the gentleman. I can not better personally describe him than by borrowing the language ol one ot his biographers, "in person he is six feet, one inch and a half in height, willi broad shoulders, a full chest and symmetrical, muscular limbs ; erect in carriage, and weighs one hun dred and eightv-livo pounds ; dark gray eyes, dark hair, mustache, and beard worn upon tho chin; a set ot regular white teeth and clearly cut features;" which, altogether, nuiko him rather a handsome man for one of forty-seven years of ago. Previous to the war in 1852 ho left the business of planter, and came to this city and engaged in tho business of "negro trader," in which traffic he seems to havo been qtiito successful, for, by 1801, he had become tho owner of two plantations a few miles below here, in Mississippi, on whieh ho pro duced about a thousand bales of cotton each year, in tho meantiino carrying on the negro trading. In June, 1S01, he was authorized by Governor Harris to recruit a regiment of cavalry for the war, which ho did, and which was the nucleus around which he gathered the army winch he commanded as a Lieu tenant General at the end ol tho war. After being seated iu his office, I said : " General Forrest, I eamo especially to learn your views in regard to the con dition of civil and political affairs in the Stato of Tennessee, and the South gen erally. I desire them for publication in tho Cincinnati Commercial. I do not wish to misrepresent you in the slight est degree, and therc'foro only ask for sucli views as you are willing I should publish." " I have not now," ho replied, " and never have had, any opinion on any public or political subject which I would object to having published. I mean what I say, honestly and earnestly, and only object to being misrepresented. 1 dislike to bo placed beforo tho country in a false position, especially as I have not. sought the reputation which I have gained." I replied: "Sir, I will publish only what, you say, and then you can not possibly bo misrepresented. Our peo ple desire to know your feelings to ward tho General Government, the Stato Government of Tennessee, the Radical party, both in and out of the Stato, and upon the question of negro suffrage." "Well, sir," said lie, "when I surren dered my soveu thousand men in 1805,1 accepted a parole, honestly, and havo observed it faithfully up to to-day. I havo counseled peace in all tho spee ches I havo made 1 havo advised my people to submit to tho laws of tho State, oppressive as they aro, and uncon stitutional as I believe them to bo. 1 was paroled and not pardoned until the issuance of tho last proclamation of general amnesty, and therefore did not think it prudent for mo to take any ac tive part until tho oppression of my people became so great that they could not endure it, and then I would 'bo wilh them. My friends thought differently, and sent mo to New York, and I am glad that I went there." "Then, I suppose, General, that you think tho oppression has becoino so groat that your pooplo should not lon ger bear it." "No," ho answered, "it is growing worso hourly, yet I havo said to the peoplo, stand fast, let us try to right tho wrong by legislation. A few weeks ago I was called to Nashville to counsel with other gentlemen Who had been prominently identified with tho cause of the Confederacy, and wo then offered pledges which wo thought would be satisfactory to Mr. Brownlow and his Legislature, and wo told them that if they would not call out tho militia, we would agree to preserve order, nud see that tho laws were cntorecd. 'J ho Leg islativc Committee certainly led mo to believe that our proposition Would be accepted, and no niilitiaorganizcd. Be lieving this, I came homo, and advised all of my peoplo to remain peaceful, and oflcr no resistance to any reason able law. It is trueuhnt I never have recognized tho present Government in Tennessee as having any legal existence, yet i was wining to submit for a time, with the hope that the wrongs might be righted pcacably." ""What are your feelings toward the Federal Government, General?" "1 loved the old, Government in 1801. I love tho old Constitution vet. 1 think it the best Government in tho world if administered as it was beforo tho war. I do not bate it: 1 am opposing now only tho Radical revolutionists who are trying to destroy it. 1 believe that par tv to bo composed, as I know it is in Tennessee, of tho worst men on God's earth men who would hesitate at no crime, and who have only one object in view, to enrich themselves." "in tho event of Governor Brown low's calling out the militia, do you think there will bo any resistance of fered to their acts?'' I asked. "That will depend upon circumstan ces. If tho militia arc simply called out, and do not interfere with or molest any one. I do not think there will be any fight. If, on the contrary, they do what I believe they will do, commit outrages, or even oiie outrage upon the people, Ihey and Mr. Brownlow's Gov ernment will be swept out of existence; not a Radical will be left alive. If the militia are called out, we cannot but look upon it as a declaration of war, because Mr. Brownlow has alrcadv is sued his proclamation directing them to shoot down the Kuklux wherever they find them, and ho calls all South ern men Kuklux. "AVliy, General we people up North have regarded the Kuklux Klun as an organization wmcti existed onlv m tho frightened imaginations of a few politicians." "Well, sir, there is such an organiza tion, not only in Tennessee, but all over the booth, nnd their numbers have not been exaggerated." "What are its numbers, General ?" "In Tennessc there are over 40,000 ; in all the Southern States thev number about 550,000 men." "What is the character of the organi zation, may 1 inquire ?" "Yes, sir. It isa protective, political, military organization. 1 am willing to show any man tho constitution of this society. The members aro sworn to recognize the Government of tho Uni ted States, It does not say anything about tho Government of the State of Tennessee' its objects originally were protection against the Loyal Leagues and the Grand Army of tho Republic, but after it became general, it. was found that political matters and interests could best be promoted within it, and it was then made a political organiza tion, giving its support, of course to the Democratic party." "But is the organization connected throughout Ihe State?" "Yes, it is. In each precinct there is a Captain, who, in addition to his other duties, is required to make out a list of names of men in his precinct, giving all the Radicals and all the 1 cmocrnU who arc positively known, and showing also the doubtful on both sides and of both colors. This list of names is forwarded to tho Grand Commander of tho State, who is thus enabled to know who are our friends and who are not." "Can you, or arc you at liberty to give me' the commanding officer of this Stato ?" "No, it would bo impolitic. "' "Then 1 suppose that there can be no doubt of a conflict if tho militia inter fore with tho people ; is that votir view ?" "Yes, sir; if thev attempt to carry out Governor Brownlow's proclama tion, by shooting down Kuklux for he calls all Southern men Kuklux if they go to hunting down and shooting these men, there will bo war, and a bioodicr ono than wo have ever witnessed. 1 have told these Radicals here what they might expect in such an event. 1 have no powder to burn killing negroes. I intend to kill the itadieals. 1 have told them this and more ; there is not a Rnd ical leader in this town but, is a marked man, and if a trouble should break out, not ono of them would bo left alive. 1 havo told them that they were trying to create a disturbance and then slip out and leave tho consequences to fall upon tho negro, but they can't do it. Their houses aro picketed, and when the light comes, not ono of them would ever get out of this town alivo. "Wo don't in tend they shall cvergetout of the coun try. But I want it distinctly under stood that I am opposed to "any war, and will only light in self defense, If tho militia attack us, we will resist to tho last, and if necessary, I think I could raise forty thousand men in live days, ready for the Hold." "D'o vou think, General, that tho Ku klux havo been any benefit to tho State '(" "So doubt of it. Sinco its organiza tion tho leagues havo quit killing and murdering our peoplo. There were some foolish young men who put masks on their laces and rodo over tho country, frightening negroes; but or ders havo been issued to stop that, and it has ceased. You may sav further, that three members of tho Kuklux have been court-martialed and shot for vio lations of 1 ho orders not to disturb or molest people." "Aro you a member of the Kuklux, General ?" r "1 am not; but in sympathy and will co-oporato with them. I know thoy arc charged with many crimes that thev aro not guilty of. A caso in point is tho killing of Blerfleld, at Franklin, a few days ago. I scut a man up there espo- ..:..n.. i ii.. , uiuuy iu iiiYi-HiigHiu mo case, ana re port to mo, and I havo his letter here now, in which he states that they had nothing to do with it as an organization." What do vou think of negro suf frage ?" "I am opposed to it under any and all circumstances ; and in our conven tion urged our party not to commit themselves at all upon tho subject, if the negroes vote to enfranchise us, I do not think I would favor their disfran chisement. "We will stand by those who help us. And hero I want you to understand distinctly, 1 am not an ene my to tne negro, w c want mm here among us ; he is the only laboring class we have, and more than that I would sooner trust him than the white scala wag and carpet-bagger. "When I enter ed the army J. took forty-seven ne groes into the army with me, and forty- live ot them wero surrendered with me. i. said to them at tho start : 'This light is against slavery ; if we lose it, you will be made tree ; it wo whip the light, and you stay with me and be good boys, I will set you free. In either case you will bo lrec. ihoso boys stayed with me, drovo mv teams, and better Confederates did not live." Do vou think the Kuklux will trvto intimidate the negroes at the elec tion ?" I do not think thev will. AVhy, 1 made a speech at Brownsville the other day, and while there a Lieutenant, who served with me, eamo to mo and in formed nio that a band of Badicals had been going through the country wlaim ingto be Kuklux, and disarming the negroes, and then selling their arms. 1 told him to have the matter investiga ted, and, if true, to have the parties ar rested." "What do you think is the effect of the amnesty granted to your people ?' "1 believe that the amnesty restored all the rights to tho people, full and complete. I do not think the Federal Government has the right to disfran chise any man, but I believe that the Legislatures of the States have. The objection that I have to disfranchise ment in Tennessee is, that tho Legisla ture which enacted the law had no Con stitutional existence, and the law, iu it self, is a nullity. Still I would respect it until changed by law ; but there is a limit beyond which men cannot be driv en, audi am ready to die sooner than sacrifice my honor. This thing must havo an end, and it is now about time for that end to come." "AVhat do vou think of General Grant?" I asked. "I regard him as a great military com mander, a good man. honest and liberal, and if elected will, I hope and believe, execute tho law honestly aud faithfully. And, by the way, a report has been pub lished m some of tho papers, stating that while General Grant and lady were at Corinth, in 1802, thev took, nnd car ried off, furniture and other property. I here brand the author as a liar. 1 was at Corinth only a short tinio ago, and I personally investigated the whole mat ter, talked with tho people with whom he and his lady lived while there, and they say that their conduct was every thing that could have been expected of a gentleman and lady, and deserving the highest praise, lam opposed to Gen eral Grant in everything, but 1 would do him justice." The loregomg is i lie principal part oi my conversation witli the General. 1 give tho conversation, and leave the reader to form his own opinion as to what General Forrest means to do. 1 think that he has been so plain in his talk that it cannot be misunderstood. The Negroes of Georgia. A Savannah dispatch of tho 3d says : Tho whito boy who mysteriously dis appeared, was found murdered by ne groes near the city. His gun and cloth ing were gone, aiid it is supposed that ho was killed for them. An inquest was held and a verdict returned that he w as killed by parties unknown. Great excitement prevails, nnd parties have been out, ono of which, after three days' hunt, met a body of armed ne groes, who halted them with military precision. Parties arc now scouring the country, in search of tho murder ers. Robberies and assaults on whites by negroes, on the roads leaning 10 uic city, arc of hourly occurrence. The negroes in and around the city are thoroughly organized, drilled, and well armed. Not Very Alarming1.

The Nation is fast oa the road to ruin, and should failure attend the ef forts now being made by tho Democra cy of tho country to save it, national bankruptcy will soon bo tho conse quence of Radical rule. The Now York Courier, viewing correctly the "situation," says : "At the present rate of national liv ing, wo shall soon come to settling day, and have nothing left for it but to stick the sheriff's flag out of the window of the capitol, and sell out the national real and personal estate for tho benefit of whom it may concern. Our public debt increases hourly instead of dimin ishing. So that the hammer and tongs tight between the Tribune pay-in-gold Republicans, anil the Senator Sherman pay-in-greenbacks Republican, is all bosh and bother; for, at the rate we arc traveling, national bankruptcy stares us impudently in the face. In fact, long before the question of gold or green backs is likely to be settled by -partisan shmg-whangors to use the naturally applicable thieves' lingo government swell mob and ianev men will havu gone through' Uncle Sam so completely that you may turn his pockets in-sidn out without'linding enough left to buy that foolish old gentleman so much us a rope to hang himself with." Ono item of reckless expenditure whieh wc shall notice will serve to show how it is that tho public debt, in stead of being diminished, has increas ed millions upon millions since the closo of tho war, notwithstanding the people havo paid into the national treasury over four hundred millions per annum. That item is the incidental expenses of the House of Representa tives which for the year ending the 30th June were $825,591 over 6300,000 more than Ihey were in 1807. This is the. way the money of tho people has been quandored, for what is true of the in cidental expenses of the House, is equally true of every other department of the government. Extravagance, and misrule have been "the order of the day" and it is no wonder that the na tion is on the broad road to ruin. From Kansas. Indians. Kansas City, September 4.
