Monday Evening, May 21, 1866
ITALY.
Tie war clouds which for a time hare
been darken. nR the eastern world, have
finally settled on the aky of classic Italy,
and she, true to her Roman instinct, re
turns, as the telegraph announces, "men
nee for menace I " Her people are thor
oughly aroused to the importance of the
question, and from one end of Italy td
the other can be heard the cry of " Yen
' ice or death I "
But people ssy, " can she stand a war
with Austria?" Let ns look at her re
sources: She is no longer the distracted
nntion of eight years ago. She now has
a navy superior to that of any European
nation except England and r ranee, ner
Mtnnding army of four hundred and fifty
thousand men, has recently been placed
on a war footing and increased to over
eight hundred thousand effectivn soldiers,
who ure ready to dare and do, and (his
number can be raised to a million and a
a half at any time. A people who are
striking to set one of their own lovely
sisters free, and who are earnestly bent
on the intention, are not easily overcome.
Rut her enemies aver that her finances
are broken, and that her debt has accu
mulated to such an extent that she can
not possibly carry on a war of the mag
nitude that this one promises to be.
This is where her people have shown
themselves "before the world as being
worthy of their Roman ancestors.
Throughont the whole peninsula they
have ceme forward and formed a Con
sorzio Xazionale (a national copartner
ship) for the purpose of paying the na
tional debt, and are coming up with their
money as freely as though it were tu
purchase their individual salvation.
Their gallant, gentlemanly King heads
the list with two hundred thousand
ponnds alerting. Every Government em
D.ove eives two months salary, even to
the rank and file of the army; and some
of her men in middle circumstances hare
signed themselves for ten thousand francs
yearly for ten years. The city of Naples,
where, the world thought, the greatest
discontent existed against the Govern
ment, comes forward and gives the sum
of two millions of francs, and her people
excel any other city in Italy in liberality
towards paying the national debt Such
patriotism as is now being shown in
Italy has never before been known in
the world
Rut it is not only in the mother coun
try that this Consorzio Xazionale exists.
Over the wide world, wherever an Italian
dwell, from the four quarters of the
globe comes the cheering intelligence
that every son of Italy is throwing in his
mite towards paying the National debt.
Even here, in our own Memphis, a com
mittee has been formed of our leading Ital
ian fellow-townsmen for that purpose.
Who has ever heard of greater patriot
ism ? The history of the world does not
show such a parallel. Is it to be sup
posed that a nation who comes up bo
manfully for their King and Government
can be overcome ? Italy stands alone,
this day, the champion of Freedom in
Europe, confronting the hired legions of
Tyranny; but no longer the divined
Italy, for she now returns " menace for
menace," and is ready to stake all upon
a trial. Thronghout her entire breadth
bayonets are bristling in the noon-duy
sun, and her iron-clads are waiting the
word to close every Austrian port
and land an army of sixty thousand
men from the city of Ancone to march
and liberate her twin sister, Hungary.
' There is a nnion of hearts and a anion of
hands within her borders, and all
are bent on freeing Venice from the des
pot's heel. A people who idolize their
king, worship their csuntry, and love
their form of government, are mighty in
their strength. Let the war in Europe
- come on, and when the clouds have dis
appeared, Italy will emerge from the
contest united and free, and give the
world another proof that a free people
re cot to be overcome.
A PKE3CBIPII0H.
We desire to call the attention of our
illustrious Legislature to a small piece
of literary composition that may have
escaped their attention. We do not
mean to affirm that they are so very self
made as never to have " been to school ;"
till, some of them are remarkably self
made. To realize that they achieved
greatness without any Assistance what
ever, it is only necessary to hear them.

that many of them hare ever been to the

THAD. STEVES 8' SPEECH.
The following is an extract from the
speech of Tbao. Stevexs, delivered in
the House previous to the vote on the
Constitutional Amendment. It is worth
reading :
Gentlemen say we are striving for
party. I do seek to sustuin my party
when that pnrty is necessary to save the
Union. I say rally to your party and
save that party, or you lose the Union.
Gentlemen tell ns that it is too strong.
Too strong for what? Too strong for
their stomachs, but not for the people.
Some say it is too lenient. It is too le
nient for my hard heart Would to God
that the exclusion of rebels might not
only rnn to the year 1876, but to the
year 19.07C. It would then be but too
mild a punishment Rut I hear it said
von mast not humble these people.

Why should we forgive any more
than He? If they are to come

whom we shall forgive and whom we
shhll exclude.
That is my principle. All I regret
is that this is not sufficiently stringent

Gentlemen forget the scenes that took
place here twenty years ago, "when the
mighty Toovbs, with his shagey locks,
jPrprl Southern fire-eaters with shouts
nf defiance, and rendered this House a
Viell nf len illation. They seem to foreet
the scenes enacted here six years ago,

we will shoot them. The penitentiary of
hell is the penitentiary that they deserve
to have till then.
Such are the sentiments of a man who
is. by acclamation, the leader of the
dominant party in Congress and the
North. We need expect no quarter from
this man, or his party. We can only hope
for good through a revolution ol public
opinion in the North and West.
THE RIOT QTJESTIOH.
We are to be honored with the pres
ence of a Congressional Committee, sunt
out to investigate the affair of the late
riot. We trust that the investigation
will be impartially made, and the real
facts brought to light. We have Gene
ral Stoxemax's Commission and General
Fist's, and how many others we do not
know, now sitting on the matter, enough
to keep it warm until the Congressional
Committee arrive. Let the trjjth come
out. If the citizens of Uemphis we
mean real citizens', not adventurers re
guilty of inciting, or participating in
wanton attack on unoffending negro,
we desire to see the fact come out The
falsehoods manufactured here and sent
abroad to aid the failing cause of the
Radicals, have done ns very great injus
tice. We are curious to know what sort
of testimony the committee will require.
If they discard all save that of radical
character, we shall expect the very worst
report Rut if they ahull liuard all po
litical antecedents and summon every
man in tho community who knows any
thing of the matter, nnd'examine hun
they will be able to sift the truth
and arrive at the real facts. Rut
such a man as Mr. Tdadeits Stevens, the
leader of the House that sent out the
committee, has prejudged the affair solely
upon Radical testimony. He has as
sumed and so announced in a speech,
that the scene here was more horrible
than the tragedy of Jamaica.
The Radical presses have come to the
same conclusion. They will not believe
the committee unless they confirm this
violent assumption. A report, however,of
the facts as tbey were, would do good.
It would vindicate the real people of
Memphis from all blame. It would show
that between the old Memphiuns and the
colored people residing here, there is the
best feeling. It would prove more. It
woijld prove that the real colored 'in
habitants like their former masters much
better than they like the strangers among
us, whether official or otherwise. Re-
tween these two peoples there is not now,
and has not been, any antagonism what
ever. They are now, as they have for
merly been, working in harmony, and to
the advantage of each other. Let the
investigation proceed and be as search
ing as possible, but, in the name of jus
tice, let it be impartial. The personal
characters of the members of the com
mittee give assurance that such will be
the case.
MEETING. OF THE CHAMBER.
A meeting of the Chamber of Com
merce is called for four o'clock this af
ternoon. It is to he hoped that every
member will attend. A cry of distress
is rising in the land, nnd hard is the
heart and wretched the disposition that
will not respond. The great city of
Memphis can well afford o feed the star
ving. No matter how sorely pressed
with debt and taxation, to say nothing of
other evils, we throw away every day,
money enough to rescue whole counties
from starvation. Rread cnsl upon the
waters, we are told, will be gathered up
many days hence. We make no sugges
tion. The Chamber knows what to do,
and will do it.
MR. 8UMNEB.
Mr. Scmkeb, in the Senate on the 17th,
presented a petition signed by one man,
from New York, asking that Jeff. Davis
be tried by court-martial. In presenting
this, Mr. Scmxeb spoke as follows: ,'"Iu
presenting this petition, I express no
opinion on the subject; but, now that it
is before ns, I will add that the trial of
Jeff. Davis, at the present time, by a
a jury at Richmond, will be one of those
great comedies which will hereafter ex
cite the derision of the world." ;

Wasbikgtok. May 13. The Freed-
men's Bureau Aeeot at Mobile has noti
fied the Mayor to cease putting colored
men in the chain-gang or be will proceed
against him under the Civil Rights law.
The Mayor replies that be is simply car
rying out a city ordinance and will con
tinue to enfore it until restrained by
military orders.
lae Senate, to-day, receded trora the
amendment to the House billauthorizing
term of the r ederal Court-to be held in
Richmond in June. The bill only awaits
the President's signature to become a
law. This completes all the preparation
required for the trial of Jeff. Davis.
1 he Unconditional I nion Convention
resumed its session at Alexandria to day.
Among the resolutions reported was one
declaring in favor of equality in all civil
and political rights. In the course of
the debate, Mr. Clement, of Portsmouth,
who was one of the Committee on Iteso
lutions, said that they bad come to the
conclusion that the policy of the Union
men in the South should be to avail
themselves of the negro element The
committee intended by using the words
qualified, impartial suurae, to con
vey this, that the two races, as to suffrage,
should be on the same footing. He could
not indorse President Johnson s party,
for he had seen its workings, but he con id
n dorse its policy, as he bad expounded
t, if he had not seen its workings.
While the majority of the committee
would stand by the action of Congress,
they had deemed it proper that they
should not pin their faith to the coat-tails
of any set of men.
I be Secretary of sr directs that ail
deposits of money belonging to the
Quartermaster's Department, for which
officers of that Department are respon
sible, shall be made only with the Treas
urer or Assistant 1 reasurers of the I ni-
tcd States. The Secretary of the Treas
ury has, however, written a letter to the
Secretary of War advising that no,
changes oe made of deposits now rest
ing in other places than mentioned in a
letter of the Inspector General, as an
immediate and summary withdrawal of
all deposits placed in various national
depositories might lead to complications,
and cause great inconvenience, not only
to the banks, but the officers making the
deposits.

fine their report to the questions of

Gen. J. S- Johnston as a Business Kan.
As we are soon to have Gen. Johnston
among ns, we naturally feel a personal
interest in him differing in character and
decree from that which we have felt in
him as a soldier and patriot Theeditor
of the Brooklyn (N. Y.) Eagle has re
cently risited Richmond, and we take the
following from a letter written for his
Diini'r Selma Timet.
..The Spottswood is the bent known of
the hotel ji in Uicbmond, but there l8opie
question, I bi'lievers to its being the
best For some reasons, nof apparent
to the visitors, the pottswood is deemed
to be "the most Southern" of the hotels
here. The house was kept open during
the war, and was under the management
of one of its present lessees, tie has
taken a prominent Union officer into
partnership, so that Dotn shades 01 opin
ion are represented in the proprietorship
as among the guests. Gen. Joe Johnston
Is numbered among the boarders at the
Spottswood; among his fellow boarders
are several 01 nis iorraer,amH;uiiiiiiB
Union officers still on duty at Richmond
There is no more promising sign of the
future of the South than is shown tn the
alacrity with which the leaders tn the
late war adapt themselvss to civil life.
An incalculable amount of mischief
raieht have been done by these men had
they chosen to remain idle, lounging
around taverns ana seeping auve tne
memories of an episode in our history
which every man who wishes welt to the
country will be glad to Bee the Southern
people, at all events, forget ; The war
was no sooner closed man tne men wno
figured most conspicuously in it at once
set about employment in the ordinary
pursuits of life. That their example has
had an excellent effect upon the people
of the South can hardly be questioned.
Gen. Lee, as is well known, has accepted
the presidency of a college; Mosb.y is
nraeticinir law: Reauregard is building
railroads; Forrest attending to the work
on his plantation, and Joseph Johnston
is here tulfilling his duties as President
of the Southern Express Company.
From the reports which reach us at
the North, I expected to find General
Lee the most popular especially in
Virginia of all the men connected with
the late war. Joe Johnston may fairly
claim to divide this honor. Joe John
ston's ability as a soldier and character
as a man, were mentioned in" the very
highest terms by every Southern man I
heard mention his name while in Rich
mond. Johnston's popularity receives
the credit of havine planned the cam
paign which resulted in the discomfiture
of McClellan's plans in 1862. He was
in chief command, it will be remem
bered, nt the time, and was wounded
slightly in one of the engagements be
fore Richmond. His place was snpplied
by General Lee, and there is a popular
notion here' that General McClellan
would not have been successful in reach
ing the James, if Johnston's plan had
been carried out in all its details.
Johnston is a stout, soldierly-looking
man of about fifty. Dressed in a busi
ness suit of pray clothes, he moves about
the hotel in which, by the way, the
chief office of the Southern Express com-
nanv is located seemingly solely intent
upon the business he has now on band.
He neither appears to seek nor shun the
public gaze. He is a sharp, active busi
ness man. and to all nnpearance desires
to be considered nothing more. John
ston could maintain a libel suit against
the publishers of the photographs which
pass for his likeness in the North. He
is far a more comely man than these
pictures represent him to be. The most
noticeable feature in his face is his light
piercing gray eyes, which' seem to look
"quite through ' those whom he has oc
casion to talk with.
Hon. C C. Clay at Horns.
From the Huntsrille Independent.
.Mr. Clay reached home on Sunday
morning, about 3 o'clock, and ns soon as
it became known, a large number of
friends hastened to greet him at the resi
dence of his venerable father; and on
yesterday the parlors of the mansion '
were thronged wittl gentlemen trom the
city and country, who came to greet their
respected fellow-citizen and welcome him
home again. He met his visitors with
that hearty cordiality whicti evidenced
how rejoiced he was to see old faces ,
again after so long and so. eventful a
separation. We hardly expected to see
him looking so well-as he does. The
trouble, harassment and deprivations of
prison life have, however, lelt visible
marks upon his frame, and his head is
sprinkled with premature gray. His
conversation partook largely of recitals
of his prison experience, but it was free
from any bitterness of censure or acri
mony ot teeling. Indeed, he seemed dis
posed to speak more of the acts of kind
ness shown him than recall the petty,
mean indignities that he was sometimes
rested with by some who could not ap
preciate the courtesy due to a gentleman
in misfortune so far superior to them in
all the elements of true manhood.' Mr.
Clay did not go to Washington, as was
so positively affirmed by the Northern
press, but proceeded immediately to
retershure. Va.. from which place he
came directly home. Mrs. Clay is with
her husband, and is an equal sharer in
the esteem and admiration that is so
ustly due her, not only for her unrivaled
virtues and graces, but for that exalted
womanly devotion which in the true
heart is "only the more developed and
fixed when the trials of adversity encom-
ru84 us about. e wish them a long
and joyous life after the eventful and
discordant scenes through which they
have passed.
EUROPEAN WAR INEVITABLE.

New Yobi. May 18. A Washington
special to the evening papers says the
belief prevails in diplomatic circles that
an European war is inevitable; that Na
poleon will withdraw his troops from
Mexico at an early day, and that Maxi
milian will find himself obliged to return
for want of money.
Stephens continues to receive large
numbers of visitors of the Roberts and
Sweeney faction. He receives messages
from circles alt over the land, indorsing
his action among others, one from San
Francisco, urging a union of the factions.
Mr. Stephens last niebt forwarded a letter
to Washington, in which he opens hostil-
ties unon the oppsing tactions lor the

power, but it is power for evil to the
cause.
