Frllow-Citizrkr: The crisis now opon as
a more important than any, except perhaps
one, which has ever arisen In tbe history of
our Dtate. to glance only at the past, our
people remember, what ia not fully appreci
ated by the outside world, how ardently then
were devoted to the union and the Uonstitu
tion, and under what circumstance of rev.
blutionary confusion they were lad and
forced into the late unhappy rebellion. With
little assurance of protection from tbe Ken
oral government, and overwhelmed by the
power of a revolution originating in more
noutoem htates, tbe state of Tennessee yield'
ed late, and only in part, and that after strong
resistance, to tue dominion or a government
which successfully excluded tbe power of the
Union, and held nndivided sway over the
entire commonwealth from tbe spring of
1B81 to that or 1863, nearly an entlr year.
The power of the general government to
snpnteM tne rebellion and preserve the Unioo
was, during moat of the war, doubted by
even it friends ; and its success was regard
ed by it enemies and by lookers-on as ut
terly tmprooaoie.
Under these circumstance the ma? of onr
loyal people at first acquiesced in what they
considered inevitable ; and from this by an
easy step tbey we:e led into participation In,
and sympathy with, the unfortunate struggle.
The inevitable circumstances of civil war,
tended also to alienate tbe feeling of tbe
people from a government whose army tra
versed and destroyed their country. This ia
the "great crime" of which our people are'
beld guilty, by which Radicalism ay tbey
("have acquired the legal right to be hanged.
and tb divine right to be damned.' But
we know, fellow-citizens, that thongh many
of yon fought gallantly, with naked, bleed
ing feet, and nnclad, shivering limbs, In tbe
service of a cause which you bad learned to
regard as Boiy J yet. when overpowered by
number and subdued by want, you laid down
your hrms and .returned penniless to your
desolated and impoverished homes, you sur
rendered in good faith. You were ready to
return to your allegiance to the government
of the Union. You bare sine acted in good
faith. A more quiet and orderly people, at
the end of a long and civil war, wa never
leen on the face of the earth. You have been
met in bad faith. Your disfranchisement lias
been made more and mora absolute. The
law of disfranchisement In this State bas
been made tbe most Infamous that ever dis
graced a statute book In America, as toward
you who participated la the rebellion, and all
who ever sympathized with you. And yet,
In the administration of that law, the law it
self is dally violated, and It provision wrest
to your disparagement, and to detest your
few remaining right noder It provision.
We say tins, fellow-eitsieas of Tennessee,
not to discounts you. We would arouse
yon to one more effort the first effort wblcb
you have bad tb niportunity to make to
regain yonr lost liberties. Under the first
franchise law which tbe Radical minority
passed, tbey wet beaten, thongh tbe Radi
cal party carried at that time sot a tithe of
tbe Inlamy oa their shoulder which now
bean them down. They passed another; bat
noder it fonnd their success but partial and
unreliable, auguring certain defeat In the fu
ture. A third Infamy wa enacted, by wbtob
they hoped to succeed. I their tureen cer
tain under the new law f Why should you
think there ia no cbauceT Tkw ttew law is
but an experiment an untried experiment.
Fearing themsvlve It would not succeed, the
Radical passed another aad fourth act or la
fatuy, more bare-faced than any which bad
preceded It The Legislature assumed to
perform tb judicial function of declaring
void tb registration of tbe single county vf
Davidson "Hie registration herotosor ha L
under Hi fraacbise law passed June S, 18(36,
so that tbe work might be dun again by aa
appointee of Urownlow. Another section of
tbe bill extends the "provision of this act to
any otktr county in tbe State," etc., ai the
discretion of lh Ooverncr. This ct of in
famy confers no power on tbe Governor to
set aside any registration any where but such
a bad been hud before tb pasaag of tb
act, and under tb law of May 3d, 1848; but
no cooslderatioB of ooasoience or of law will
deter tbe iucuwbeut of the Slate ctpitol from
doing any unlawful thing. Tb power is
eemlngly placed in bl baud to euforoa bl
naked will a lav ; bat w ar sot discour
aged fur all tbi Brow alow tanaot, with
all this machinery of tyranuv in bi bauds,
hold and keep in aiaek subjeoLiuB tbe will of
a million of free people. . U you wm arouse
10 tb eoBleet, bihJ go fortn to susa your
selves, tbe c bonis wuitu bind your llmo wiu
be parted asunder "as a thread of tow it Wo.
ksn when it loucbah tbe 6 re." You can
win t'ols contest if yoa will arouse to work.
Our neon! bav been loug used to D tree,
and when tbey awake faun tb tlamber Into
which llivir wearied energies have taltea, tbe
clamor of thtlr Indignation will b lika tbe
voice of many water. The danger is, fellow
citixeaa, that you will too long delay yoar
action, aud then yoar vsngeaac will aol
(top Short of unlawful excess. For let ty
ranny than this w tee, have king lost their
bead. But we would have your engine
tempered with moderation. We feel no fear
from the canting tbieai of military or mill
tie coercion daily thrown ont by pitiful pol
iticians, who Judg yonr nature by their own
cowardly Instinct. Tb government of the
nation l not going to Interfere to restrain
tbe lawful efforts of our neonla to retain
ther freedom- The people of Tennessee, for
tne enk or peace, bav now placed them
selve upon the broad platform of universal
suffrage and universal equality before the
law. Tbe public opinion of tb nation would
not tolerate an outside Interference, to secure
tb continuance In power of a pitiful
and hateful minority which dare not so
oeior tb people or tb state oo term like
these. A to Brownlow himself, and hit mi
litia, tbey dar not confront a determined
people. They did, indeed, begin a career of
robbery and outmcre in one of our peaceful
counties," which culminated in a cruet and
cold-blooded mnrder. But when tbey pre'
entjy beheld the gathering wrath of a people
"cast down but not destroyed," they dunk
away Into a cowering quietude. Oovernor
Brownlow cannot raise bi tight thousand
militia. There are not o many outlaw in
the 8tat at his service. Re and his Legis-
latur and other officials have to bankrupted
the Stat Treasury, that be has no money to
pay or provision such a fore. But In fact
he dare not raise them till after the election.
The good tense and better feelings of eveu a
portion or nit own supporters is already to
shocked at the barbarities of bit militia, tfeat
he will not likely dare to increite their num
ber, even if it should II within bi power.
The people took upon these outrage more in
anger than in fear. But, if the full quota of
eight thousand outlaws were quartered opon
this one free people, we should be unworthy
of onr former honor to permit tbem to con
trol the result of tb coming election. One
hundred and fifty thousand nisn aroused to
struggle for their liberties, and nnused to sub
mit to oppression, cannot be beld In subjuga
tion by such a force.
Notwithstanding tb wicked machination
or tboa who nave organized "loyal league
throughout tb state, the colored people can
be induced to vote tbe Conservative ticket if
tbe mass of tb people will interest tHWn-
selves actively to instruct them as to their
duty and interest in this regard. Tbey will
nadily understand that tb "leagues ' will
not support them, and that tb Radicals .will
not be able or willing to give them employ
ment at wage, or to feed and cloth tbem,
and give them shelter. Tbey may soon be
taught that their interest lie in living in har-
mooyjwilb tb whit people in their midst
Much has b ecu don already in that war,
wherever the effort bas been made, and there
can be no doubt of uoces if our people will
mak but half lb effort tb importance of
tb cat call for.
In tbit trial, fdlow-cititen, let us act like
men. .Let u not forget our former freedom.
Let us not so sooa forget our former hon
or. It was a grav error to break down tbe
barrier of tb Constitution erected by the
wisdom of our father, which stood between
Ibe people and the arbitrary power of those
who would oppress tbem. Maoy of you par
ticipated in that error. And bow, when you
so some of n who bav not been compro
mised by tbe untoward events ot tb lad
four year, slrainiog every nerve in the effort
to restore to yon your dearest rights, will you
lie idle, with your arm folded, submissive to
the hateful nomination of the oppressor? In
memory of tbe past let it not be so I If each
one or you wbo ia disfranchised win nse
every esertion to secure one vote for tbe con
servative ticket of course tbe result cannot
be doubtful. . If each one of you will make
tit (fort, the result It certain. Many of you
can secure many vote. Win all tbe votes
in your power. Indue those within your
inauenc to withdraw from their treasonable
league. If tbey continue in such aasocia-
tious it must work their ruin. We owa it to
these poor people, wbo were one our ser
vants, to rescue them from tb wile of the
unprincipled adventurer who are bow seek
ing to ruin the colored man for tbeir own
telGsb purpose.
. No time is to be loet. ' Perfect your organ
tzatioa in every neighborhood. Have your
barbecue and publio (peaking, but above
all things, ate that tb right voter be regis
tered, and that tbey rote, and rota right on

reported truly. Let those who oast a rot to
continue tbe enslavement of their fellow-cit
isena, be noted; and let them know that here
after tbey shall "tie to you as heathea men
and publican." Where tb issues between
political parties involve only reasonable dif
ferences of opinion, we condemn proscription
for opinion sake : but Radicalism bas brand
ed you as infamous, as on a par with him
wbo baa been convicted of robbery, or theft.
or burglary, or arson. He who rotes Ul sus

Within the last few day, a correspondence
bas been published, between two agents of

On tbe first day of tb present month, the
Governor who now seeks hi re-election by
all manner of unlawful and unfair meene, is
sued bis proclamation, which most of you
hart teen with Indignation. In this Ouber
nalorlal proclamation, the dictator boldly as
sumes to th Executive department, from
which the constitution has expressly withheld
that function, tb authority to declare, con
strue, and expound the law. He otters bit
opinion liks the rescript of a Rcmsn Empe
ror, and arrogantly threaten tn Judge of!
tb uonnty Uourts with punishment if they
shall presume to perform those judicial and
ministerial function conferred upon tbem by
the constitution and law. The law shall be
according to his interpretation, and vengeance
shall fall oa tbe beads of tboa wbo disohey.
He, tbe Governor, is a candidate for n-elec-tiou.
Tie has tbe power to appoint the com
missioner of registration in all tb counties,
aad assume tbe right 10 chang them at
pleasure. Hi commissioners so appoinied
by tbe on man power, shall appoint the
judges to hold the election, and all other offi
cer thereof. Under our law dieriff Is not
permitted to bold an rlectlbn wherein be
himself is a candidate; and common decency
would debar any but the most shameless from
exercising a controlling loflneaor over bit
own election. But there seems to be no in
famy of degradation to which th present ru
ter of Tennessee will not descend.
In reference to this matter, fellow citizens,
wc advise moderation and obedience to the
mandate of tb oppressor that be may be
left without excu before tba nation, whan
be finds himself beaten on hi own ground
by th Indignant role of a people determin

Th payment of fifteen dollar per bale ought
certainly to afford a fiua revenue to tbUov

recently made that tbe Government bat never
derived one dollar of benefit from this tax.

to a speech receully made by tb Hon. Kd.

Fauow CiTiMxi: I ra a member at ao

true loyal man In th Stat 1 think 1 am on,
and bar proved myself an. -But people
must leant to lewve off tbeif old avejudicea, '
I am aot sure tbat itbat party Is doia their
duty toward tb people, and think it would
o well ir a sew one could be organ It d lo
pay more regard to tb lateresta of tba peo
ple snd let to tboa of ta politic too.
Brownlow ia aot competent lo no Governor. .
I wrote an abolition letter to Brownlow, ia
which I praised him as an of th greatest
patriot of the day, In order to ad ranee tb
interests of the colored people snd allow these
th right to rote with tb maa that w fought.
in dung this my object wa lo reconcile tb
wbol people so tbat w might b w aa w
were before tb war. But It wa at no avail.
Brownlow claims to bar infrared from tba
war. Now, I bav board of me suffering,
but I don't tbluk b did. II 1 tba astir

Brownlow to come up and my that b bas
ever taken an activ part for a loyal maa ia
Tenoessee. He has dona nothing but to ag.

With regard to bis militia, I will mr that
it wa not th Interest of th Legislature to
call it into service. It wot started In accord
sues with Mr. Brownlow' representation. -
that tt wa dangerous to travel through tbi
Stat without a guard. Tbey first paamd a
resolution to request General Tboma to fur
nish troops, but tbi was aot dona. But I
drfy Mi. Brownlow to say that ha M not
request Gen. Thoiaa not to fumiah tb
troops, but let bim (Brownlow) raralsa bi
own. saw the UtUr. ,
Now I'll tell you what ha waats tbos

men that don't agree wltb htm to rot for
him, or to keep tbem from roting al all aod
I'll defy him to deny it
H talk about bi sympathy for the lojsl
