N eIsiTeT T G KAN T. MiiHmt Jam) ntoPMRntM. B. V. THOMAS, EDITOR. tlarttsi lUc, Tens. I .The President's Veto Message Ku tli ring of the olden timet, when tbe Const I tat ion wat venerated for iu wisdom, aod adhered to m the landmark of political rights nod tbe best neurit; for popular liberty. ' For newly five year, that Instrument bos either been regarded at n oh rolet record, or m plaything, in the baodi of the Radicals, with wbta te amuse the populuee, whilst it letter and rpitU were violated whenever either wat tuppoaed to interfere with the preconcerted aroCTKWisn of the war.' Wo bad feared that a re turn te eeeittitutloiinl government wat a very remote, if not a bopelcs event ; tbts uicjuage, how- rrr, not only revives our hope, but givca na the assurance that the President, with firm purpose and a steady hand, will cbecl IB rood career of the destructive and restore tbe Union and tbe Con tltutlon, as nearly as may be, to their etatue be. fort tbe war. Relieved from painful doubt, we aow breathe eusy,and instead of feeling railed opo a combat every political heresy put forth by the Radical majority In Congress, we shall let 'em rip knowing that a power greater than theirs is ar . rayed against lacaa, ana to which, tney most too cumb sooner or later. The Soatb baa nothing to- loose, now, by being unrepresented in Congress, because all it could bope to achieve, through Its representatives, would be: tbe defeat of such Iawt t th enlarged Freedmcn's Bureau bill ; and since tbe veto Is competent to that ead, and the Presi dent bits shown bit purpose to defend and preserve fat Constitution, wa don't care a button whether or delegates Sra admitted or not - Were tbey lit their seat, there would still be a majority of Rad. teals in both Booses; that majority conld pass Its kills m spite of tbe Southern representatives, and nothing but the Executive veto could pi event them from becoming laws. As an evidence of a re stored Union, and a reviving harmony, every good aaan would h glad to tee the Southern delegate admitted to their seats, but for any practical pur pose likely to. t subserved thereby, It is, perhaps, fatter atfs it, for in tbe present temper of tbe mv jarivy, alienation, rather than harmony, woald be lb result Let nt, then, be quiet and patient jniet because powerless to remedy t bedevils com plained ot, and patient because assured that tbe President it tbe firm friend of tbe Union and Con stitution, and that he will stand between them and tb power wbisb seeks to destroy both. '. , The Speech of the President, Ob the t2d alt, has fallen, like a bombshell, in tbe Radical ranks, and like the first gun at Sutnptebas inaugurated a war that mutt result in the destruc tion of tbe government, or tbe annihilation of the Radical party. We have no misgiving as to tbe result. Tbe struggle will, doubtless, be a fiero. one, mu in nepcer, tat snorter, i ne people, every where In tbe North, are beginning to move in sup port of the President The thirst for vegeance is giving place to a desire for pence and unity; truth and justice are exerting their be oi Brent influence upon tbe popular miud ; the discordant elements rageadere4 by war are willing down In harmony with law and order, and sober second thonght it tringlhg home, to every good man, the conviction that We must look to confidence and conciliation for harmony, and to enlightened justice for perma nent and prosperous I'uinn. The President bat led f.T tn this direction ; tbe people will follow bis lead, and neither the tury of fonnticisra, nor the wiles of ambitious tiiniagogues can long defer that "bettor d4y" whose dawn ia even How visible upon the political horiton. Stevens may blaster in un adorned English, nnd Sumner may clotbe bit philippics in the choicest flowers of classic lore, but t'je one can not bnlly, nor tbo other deceive tbe the man whose firm will end' practical good sense are proof against iotiroidntion, on the one hand, nutty the sophistries of frantic ambition, on tbe other. 'It la a grand spectacle, and a forciblo illustration rf the power of right, to see one man defying and holding In cbeck tbe mighty party which has ruled the country, for five long, disastrous yeiirs, and who now seek tbe overthrow of the government whose principles they bave discarded because in imical to their designs against tbe liberties of the )eple. Stevens and Siuiwier have teen the ''band writing on the wall" Tbey may rave and fume, aad goaded l desperation, may resort to Impeach, raent, bat the more violent their demonstrations, tbe more certain and sudden, their fate. . "Whom tbe gods wish to destroy, tbey first make mad,'' is a proverb completely illustrated in the rise, pro great and (we may add) fall of the Radical Tarty. Its existence bat been a terrible scourge, and Its snnihilatiou will gladden the heart of mil lions. This good work, tbe President has begun, and will complete. Let the friends of humanity and constitutional liberty, everywhere, nphold bim, in word and deed. Tn be Republican Convention of Indiana, found Itself In an embarrassing situation, i conse quence of the President's veto, In advance of which be delegate bad been appointed. Nothing daun ted, however, by lbs difficulties of the situation, that august body resolved that it would be right in spite of the devil, a"d therefore, very cooly en dorsed tb Congress which adopted the amended fur bill, and tb President who vetoed It. There era bat two sides to the controvt.-..y, and by plant ing themselves, squarely, upon both, the Repub lioaot of Indiana are bound to be right ; and iu all future political contest, tbey can take either, or both tide and elalin tba merit of consistency. To endorse tb veto, alone, would bave brought tbem in collision with Congress, and to endorse the lat ter, exclusively, would bave brought thim in col lision with tbe President. Either coarse would bave been strongly suggestive ofa parly split how much better It w as, therefore, to cultivate har mony and save iipprnrnticei by endorsing both sides, tban to hasten Miism by acknowledging it I There la no priuclh- involved, bevaitnc tbe party kit are to. risk; it h no character to loow, ex vpl such as it oiifcbl to bo gUd to get rid of, then why should it h.ixiiiil its supremacy It ulstmce. by taking ide either with CongresM, or the I'rcsi iuulf It would hive been folly to think of it . - Tn "must" in the Legislature lias led to the seaignatlon of some twenty members, and others will probably follow suit The notorious Arnetl, in view of no quorum, made speech to prove that Ujt constitution does not mean that two-tbirdt of tn whole body shll constitute quorum, but two thirds of a majority. Ilia likely that tbis Inter pretation may be eudornd. and that the Kndiciil v-.il attiuipt to -'g' under It Tko Tariff. ..Oui'tO of the restoration of the Union, and the, preservation of free goveajiment, there is nothing which more nearly concerns the people than such an equal Ixat ion, of taac as shall award to each In dividual his fair proportion of tbe burden of debt now Testing upon the country, Jh allocation ditlicult of adjustment, we admit; but there are certain- leading principles easily comprehended, and readily adapted to inch a system of taxation at will yield the largest revenue and, at the same lime, afford relief to certain Interest noduly taxed. Among these leading principles, stand prominently forward, tbe self-evident proposition, that each in dividual shall not be taxed according to bit means, and that, In adjusting tbe ditties on iniportt, one in terest shell' be hardened that another may pros per. It is neediest to inform tbe reader thath both these political axiomt buve been disregarded In tbe system of revenue at present in force. Tbo holders of government bend are a favored' tlast.. The hundreds of million! of dollnrt held by then, tn this shape, pay not one cent in to the treasury, and every dollar thna exempted from taxation in creases the burdens of the laboring millions against whom the gorernment bos so unjustly discriminated. Out a greater evil than this is found in the ex isting tariff, which is to nearly prohibitory that the revenue from Imports It hot half what it might be, lulst it enables the manufacturers to sell tbeir wares for twice their real value-. The Chlcaira Times, alter making a cautious and fair calculation of the amount of money forced out of the pockets of the people by this iniquitous tariff for tbe year 1865, and transfered to the pockets of the manu facturers, sayt It would pay all the expenset of tbe government, aud liquidate the national debt in four yean and a knlf. This estimate it sustained by facta and figures, and from it the people may form a correct idea of tbe great wrong done them, and of the vast amount of money wrung from them that bondholders and manufacturers may wallow in- wealth, as the pensioners of the government, ll tbe extravagant premiums which the tariff force us to pay to the "lords of the loom," went late tbe Treasury, the harden might be cheerfully borne. because the result would be an Immediate return to specie payment and an early extinguishment of tbe national debt; but, at it is, millions sufTer for the benefit of hundreds, and the government gains nothing by system of class legislation at once un just and oppressive. Tbe Timet concludes by say jng mat me amount extorted fresn the people, last year, and paid to manufacturers wat "sufficient to pay all the expenses of tbe Government and the public debt in four and a half years. Sufficient to build two canals per year from New Vork to San Francisco; and tweaty-two canals per year from Buffalo to Sew York. Sufficient t buy all tbe railroads in the United States in fifteen montht, and sufficient to enable tbem to carry fi eight and passengers tor nothing, and build thousands of miles of new road yearly, if divided among the dif ferent companies. Sufficient to buy all tbe real and personal property in the United States in eigh teen years, according to tbe valuation of 180. A tax of twenty-six dollars annually apoa every man, woman and ebtld, white and black, in tbe country!" Tinkkssic bat spoken out, in tone net to be mistaken, in favor of tbe Union and tbe Constitu tion, and it must be gratifying to tbe President to know tbat bis own State endorse bit course un qualifiedly, and almost unanimously. It It true, he bat enemies in tbe State; it it equally true that be knows who they arc, and how little be has to fear from their hostility. He knows them to be in alliance wUh Toad. Stevent and Fred. Douglass, and in bit recent denuneiasiea- of tbe Radical leaders, he evinced his contempt for the email fry wbo yeps at his becls,and bade defiance to tbe mat. ter spirits of tba rebellion against the Union and the Constitution. Tennessee took its position at the right time and in tbe right spirit None can now mistake its sentiments, however much malice may distort them, and, for tbe future, memorialists and' Radical letter writers can not deceive the honest masses, though they may still furnish text for tbe vindictive agitators wbo prefer the ruin, of the government to the overthrow of their power. We bave received tbe February number of De Bow s Review, aud givs a portion of tbo table of contents: American Progress; the State ot the Couutry; Mr. McCullocb't Report; Climate! of tbe South; Petroleum; Virginia; the Mississippi river, and various otber topics of interest The article we have had the leisure to read, are handled with marked ability, and the varied and valuable, information to be derived from every number of tbe Review ought to nmke it a welcome guest in every family and the companion of every reading mnn. w Torn, Feb. ?8. The Tribune's Washing ton special says : ' The President was called upon Inst night by a Congressman and a State Senator, both from New York. In the course of conversa tion the Pre.-idem said that the test oa'b was a little too severe; that many of those wbo bad par ticipated in the rebellion were good men to repre sent the Southern States in CoiiRreas, and tbat the test oath ought not to be applied to them. He added that mere oath to support tbe constitution was all that wat necessary, for a man that would take that oath wat a loyal man. At to tbe consti tutional amendment changing the basit of repre sentation, tbe. President said no constitutional amendment ought to be passed until the puUic should be quite free from excitement and the Southern States represented in Congress. Tiirmow Wtxn o the SpKr.cn Thurlow Weed telegraphed from New York on Thursday after noon, ratifying the President's course and offensive speech of Thursday, as follows: 'To Senator Morgan: All right here, iu Washington and in the cocntry.

The I'resdent't speech is triumphant, and the country will be happy," Washington, Feb. 28. Indications are, from what has fullen from member of tbe Reconstruc tion Committee, that a bill will toou lie repotted for the recognition of the State of Tennessee, and the consequent admission of tier Senator and Representatives to Congress.

A TBVTUrVL AND CMO.VKNT PR0TMT AUil.VBT RADICAL fKBOKKTY lo tbe discbarge of a duty Incumbent upon the Representative to render an account or tbe trust reposed In bim by .the body who have delegated authority to bim, we beg leave to submit to the people of Tennessee, and to oar immediate tooett tuent, the reasons which have controlled at, at membert of the present General Assembly of the State, In withdrawing from He delilieratlons. Re- cognixiug the serious character of the step we have taken, we protest that the direct and immediate consequences involve us, in common with the great mast or the people or the State, aad are, there fore, a pledge of the rectitude of tbe intenlioni and motives which have governed us. From it no special, local or personal advantage, immediate or prospective, inures to us, or to any party or section with which we are identified. On the contrary, we individually might derive ad vantage Jry pursuing a differ it course. To d so, however, would be a bate betmval of our constituency, an abandonment of right a sale of liberty, and the overthrow of Republican insti tution!. To preserve these we bave not hesitated to take the step which has led to the present condi tion of affairs in your General Assembly. . . we nre-tuppose. reiiow-cHiaens, tbat you bave not bee inattentive to the state of affairs as tbey exist the events that bave proceeded tbeir pres ent condition ; and that you are aware that there is now pending before the House of Representa tive "a bill to amend tbe present franchise law," pa5ed June 6th, 1869, the object of which it to limit and les en tbe number of qualified voters, as ascertained by thnt law, and to lodge the control of this most importaut political power in the bands of the uovernor. It will be remembered by too, fellow citizens. that under the ecbcdwle to the amended Constitu tion, adopted on the 2 2d of February, 18J5r the qualification of voter.) and limitation of the elective franchise" was deposited, to to speak, with tbe first Legislature which bat met since tbe adoption thereof. It it therefore claimed by some, and which many deny, that whatever law is passed by this General Assembly, becomes constitutional in !tt cnaractcr, and cannot be modifivd save in the manner pointed out by the Constitution for Its amendment. . In view, tuerv of the probable per manent character of any law passed, or to be passed by tbe General Assembly, it became our solemn duty to see that neither the rights of tbe people were abridged, or tbe Constitution violated. Waiving any expression just nqw as to the want of fairness, justice and courtesy manifested by a ma jority of the House of Representatives, in their ac tion to cut off debate, amendment or other pro ceeding of the undersigned, to eipiee, perfect or defeat the bill, by legitimate parliamentary steps. we proceed to state tbe merits of the issue at they exist. Earl in tbe tession, the qnestion of tbe amend ment of tbe existing franchise law was mooted, and the billl thereon referred to a special committee. who reported a bill in lieu of all others, which was so alopted. fending tbe consideration thereof, on its second reading, a new bill wat introduced and adopted in lie of the committee and tbis bill passed Its second reading, and by a vote of tbe House wat made tbe special order of the next dav, Pending its third reading, and under the operation of tbe previous question, it wat put upon . its passage. A number of ut felt it to be our duty, as yonr representatives to withdraw from tbe delibe rationt of a body which ander the forms of the law sought, in our opinion, to make tale of tbe cititen, to asura the sovereignty of tbe people, de stroy the Ceastitirion, and change the form of your government w e submit herewith tbe Bill as it now reads : Owing to tbe extreme length of the Bill, we omit It from our columns. It was toning a poo oar deliberation, without previous notice to tbe House, adopted and hurried to its third reading. An examination of it pro visions, reuowecitizena, will show yon tbat tbe in tention is to reduce the number of "qualified voters in toe estate," aitnougo tbe "disloyal" are now prohibited from voting; and why should the num ber be reduced ? Is it for tbe good of tbe country, or thai office should become an Inheritance T It will further show you that more political patron age to ereateJ, and thus more taxes are to be levied and collected off of an impoverished people. It in again snow yon mat the object M not the peace, harmony and prosperity or oar beloved State, but the continuance of discord, strife and trouble; and further, tbat it it to destroy the republican form of our State government in making tbe Gov ernor of the State the arbiter and ruler of the ballot-box. No potentate ever sought greater power than tbis confers, and be wbo desires the overthrow of popular institutions could not be invested witb a mote fatal weapon. V e Invite your attention, fellow-clt rent, to the fact that this bill has an alarming and dangerous tendency to overthrow your Constilation aad tub vert your Government, and is equally revolutionary with the proceedings taken in tbi Capitol in 1861, when by military leacne this State wat trans fered to Government of the to-called Confederate State. And we dare to appeal to you, people of Tennessee, who, with a strong arm aud stout heart in tbe field and by the fireside, as exiles or mourners by yonr desolate hearth-stones, main tained through good and evil report your loyalty to tbe Union, upon the Issue now made up between the -undersigned and the members of the present Ifouso of Heprescntatives, tupportcrt of tbe pending Franchise bill. And in doing so, we distinctly and boldly charge: 1st. 1 hat the bill violates the constitution at the State ; tbat it lodges the control of the ballot-box in tbe hands of tbt Governor when your constitu tion dehvrce that all "elections shall be free and equal." Can, this be so when the taprice of a single individual, dictating instructions to eighty odd petty commissioners, is to determine, the quali fication of the voter, and tbeir instructions taking color from his prejudices ; or if bis commissioners act without his instructions, or disregard them, de termine the qualification by tbe amount of person al profit and gain there may be In the transaction. and denying to the loyal citizen the right of appeal now mo uevision oi mis omcer, wno is under the penalties for violation of tbe law. Pause, fullow citizens, and redact upon tbe immense power this confers upon a single individual. We have lately seen the President of the United stales reluse to receive even less power, when ten dered the control of tbe freedmen. No matter how good or great the man may be, the lodgement of sucu vast power in bis bands Is dangerous to con slitutional liberty, and is at war with the whole tneory of tuspublicao Government. zu. i no mu violates tbat great principle, to maintain which our lathers of 1770 pledged tiu!ir lives, their fortune and their sacred honor," and which rave birth to our glorious Union, vit : that representation should follow taxation. 3d. The bill violate the plighted fuith of tbe United States, of Abraham Lincoln, of President Johnson, of Generals Grant and Sherman. In tbis that tbe action of the Congress of the United States, President Lincoln and Johnson were au thorized and directed to tender to the States and person thereof In rue rebellion, such terms of am nesty, at would lead to a restoration of the Union. In the exercise of tbe power thus conferred by law and uuder the constitution, President Lincoln maue ins repeated proclamations of amnestv. tm. posing to restore all those who availed themselves of the benefit thereof, to all their rights, save property in slaves; the conditions thereof being the taking and observing the oath of amnerty Similar lenders were made by President Johnson in hit proclamation of May 29, 186.1. Many of you, fellow-citizens, availed yourselves of this offer of tbe Government particularly that of Piesidont Lincoln, and have faithfully observed it. Put, not- wunsianding this, under this bill you aro to be de prived in a summary manner of, the most cberUhed and sacred right guaranteed to you br tho action of the United States tluougb its legislative and ex- ci'iwvo luiiuiiuuarice.

Tbe bill violates tbat spirit of harmony, equality and division of political power prescribed In the constitution for the tbe three grand divisions of the State. The political power of tbe State would,' upon the passage of tbt bill, become tec lionneised. ' The localizing of the political power of the State, In any one section would be fraught wira inQni. mischief, and would destroy tnat har mony nnd pride which, hereto, hat prevailed in tbt Stat, and contributed to it progress and pros perity; and no one having the welfare of his State nt heart would derl.e to build up or-promote the political fortune of one section at the expense of tbe other. , ifi:i ' , : ' We have thus, as briefly as could be done, fel low-citizens, made a frank, candid, and true decla ration of the motive and reasons that have gov. erned nt ia our recent action. A bill concocted in secret cabal, thrust upon our instant consideration, and iu passage urged forward in hot baste, un der pressure or tbe previous question, with limited majority in Its favor, and which by Itt pro visions oveithrowcd the republican form of our gorernmeut destroyed the constitution, broke tbe faith of tbe Government, and mode merchandise of tbe liberties or the people, called for prompt decisive measures to arrest the progress of this most dangerous revolution, inaugurated by the majority of tbe present Hose of Representative.
