LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION.
MEMPHIHi
Friday
Evening. July 20th, 1866
IT IS WHISKED.
An irresponsible body of mea," calling
themselves the Legislature of Tennessee,
havo consummated an act of atrocity on
paralleled in the history of any country
claiming to be free. Against the wishes
of nine-tenths of the people, they hare,
as foras they could, committed the State
to a Constitutional Amendment tnaiwiu,
if adopted, practically reduce the whole
South to political slavery. To succeed,
they fastened a couple of corpses to the
House and counted them as members.
They were, politically, to that body, just
what corpses would be to a family circle.
They were in the form of representative
men, but they represented nothing, be
cause they would not consent to act in
that capacity. They could not be counted
unless present in person. They could
not be counted if brought in under guard,
or in chains. No man can be held to
answer for an obligation imposed upon
him by duress. Whatever he may .be
forced to do, either for himself or for
others, is simply null and void.
But suppose a quorum actually pres
ent, and that body complete. Looking
to its origin, and the nature of the work
to be accomplished, was it competent to
ratify an amendment to the Constitution
. of the United States, to be forever bind
ing upon a people who have no power to
approve or object, because they have
been disfranchised aud outlawed from
participation in civil government? It
has been the custom of this country to
consult the people in the formation
of constitutions. As they are, under
our system, the origin of all
just government, they must be con
sulted, before any body of men, however
organized and for whatever purpose, can
bind them. The matter of ordinary
legislation is different . That is ephem
eral, or may be easily repealed. One
Legislature may undo all that a former
has done, except that which relates to
organic law. A ratification of a consti
tutional amendment by one Legislature
cannot be interfered with by another.
And besides, a Legislature that ratifies
an amendment, is supposed to have been
elected to represent the wishes of the peo
ple. But in this case, the people of Ten
nessee have not only not been consulted,
but they have been gagged to prevent
their known opposition from finding
voice. They have that forced upon them
which in no probable contingency, they
will ever have an opportunity of throw
ing off If that opportunity should oceiir
from possession of power, the con
currence of two-thirds of the States
would be requisite to render it effectual
It is not Tennessee that ratifies this
amendment. It is the work of a cabal
who assume to be masters of the people
who proceed Upon the assumption that
nine-tenths of the people who constitute
the commonwealth of Tennessee, are not
people, not citizens in contemplation of
law, but simply animals, just bursaa
enough to be taxed to support those
masters. As an outrage, for heartless,
heastial atrocity, this act of BaowNLOW'a
tools at Nashville, has no parallel in
history. It is simply a nullity, and
would so be declared by a virtuous na
tional government Tennessee would
not be counted as one of the ratifying
States by an honest Congress. But it
trill be counted by that which is now
drunken and reeling upon tne bights of
power.
DECLARATION Of IHDEPIBDENCE AND
RADICAL LEGISLATION.
The Brooklyn Eagle quotes the follow
ing enumeration of grievances from the
Declaration of Independence, and so far
as the South is concerned, they are as
true to-day, as against Congress, as they
were ninety years ago as against Gioane
III.:
He has refused to pas other laws fur
the accommodation of large districts of
people, unless those people would relin
quish the right of representation in the
Legislature; a right inestimable to them,
and . formidable to tyrants only. (See
proposed amendment to the Constitu
tion). He has erected a multitude of new
offices, and sent hither swarms of nffi
eers to harass our people and eat out
their substance. (Congress attempts to
do so nnder the Freedmeo's Bureau bill )
He has kept among us, in time of
peace standing armies, without the con
sent of the Legislature. (The Congres
sional policy.)
He has affected to render the military
independent of and superior to the civil
power. (Congress has done so, a oiler
the Civil Bights and Freedmtn's Bureau
bills.)
For imposing taxes on us without our
consent (The South fats no voice or
vote in Congress.)
For taking away our charters, abolish
ing our most valuable laws and altering,
fundamentally, the powers of onr Gov
er.imcnls. (The Congressional policy )
For suspending our owe Legislatures
and declaring themselves invested with
power for us in all case whatsoever.
Congress makes claim to this power )
TBI PAITT.
Reconstruction of the Sooth means, ia
the radical Tocalulary, the construction
of a radical party ilf-aJl the Southern
States, strong enough to control them.
The following is from a special from
Washington to Jhe St Louis Democrat :
General HowAtr. has received a report
from General Fostbb, Assistant Com
missioner for Florida, in which he says,
in this section the colored people een
erally receive impartial justice in the
courts and are well treated. A large
number of ex-officers of the United States
army have settled and invested their
mouey in planting in that section of the
South than in any other.1 This interest,
with other Northernefs investing in the
lumber ' business, is so fast increasing
that in a few years, if protected, will be
powerful .enough to obtain the entire
political control of the State. ,
DISCHARGED.
That double-edged journal, the Peori
Democrat, thus cuts : Captain Philip R.
Fobkkt, son of " Dead Duck ", Fomct,
was lately discharged from the 14th
United Statea Infantry for "condnct un
becoming an officer and a gentleman.
If all should be discharged who are
guilty of the same conduct, the father as
well as the son would have to travel, out
in Congress the same strict regard for
the " conduct of an officer and a gentle
man," does not obtain as in the army.
J, Says a special to the" St Louis
Democrat: It may be interesting to
those who, for the sake of obtaining of
fice, are making themselves prominent
in the organization of Johnson Clubs,
and the third party movers, to hear that
leading Union Senators affirm that not
one of this class thus working in the fall
elections, will be confirmed at the next
session in case they receive appoint
ments during the recess.

The Murderer of Mr. Bhatt-CoBiessioa.
Horace Johnson, alias Horace Greeley
(colored), says the Charleston Courier
of the 10th, made the following confes
sion; having previously been told by the
Coroner, in the presence of the jury, that
he could not give him any inducement
or promise, or make any threat to extort
a concession, and if he did make a con
fession it must be of his own free will.
Horace then said :
On Tuesday morning, 3d inst, about
six o'clock am., he borrowed a double
barreled run from Alfred Johnson, col
ored, and went out hunting for birds;
went to Guy McBride, on Mr. Uolbeck's
farm, and got six roasting ears of corn ;
afterward went op Uutledge street to the
avenue that leads to Mr. Khett' s farm ;
met Jobp Bull alias John Beanett, col
ored; Bull wanted to borrow the gun;
said be would give him two hundred dol
lars for the use of it; let him have the
gun; tbey then met on the causeway;
John told him (Horace) if he would shoot
Mr. Rbett be would get two hundred dol
lars; be and John went to a branch ; de
ponent shot a turtle dove and killed it;
loaded the gun, put in a handful of high
blister blue shot; John and deponent
then went to a little branch where Mr.
Rhett was afterward killed; deponent
laid dowa on his side and aaid to John,
" let ns go ; " John said, "hold on a min

hold, and were struggling for the' gun it
went off, discharging both barrels at
about the same time, shooting Mr. Khett;
after he was shot, Mr. Khett cried out

The jury then rendered the following
verdict: "' " ' . . ...

- From Washington.
Special to the St. Louis Republican.
Washington. July 18. The House to
day, after a spirited contest, agreed by a
majority of twenty-one to adjourn, the
Senate concurring, on Wednesday next
Opn Ranks. Thai Stevens and Morrill
were earnestly opposed to an adjourn
ment, and favored continuing indefinitely
in session. But there were Rcpublieans
voting with the Democrats to easily carry
the proposition, tbougn tne minority re
sorted to every parliamentary expedient
to defeat it ' .. .
Tba House steadily passed bills all day
and nartici Dated in little or no debate.
The most important measure adopted
. . ry. " a" I'll ! : .. I
was an amenautory aariu inn, (jibcuik. a
duty of 3 cents per pound on cotton, in
creasing the duty on cigars, and repeal
ing the fishing bounties, and establishing
statistical ourcau iu iuc ncwuij de
partment Senators say that tu.is bill
will be postponed in me oenaie uuiu
next December. ,
The House to-day concurred in Senate
amendment to House bill reducing the
number of Supreme Courts and chang
ing the circuits. It now goes to tbe
President for his approval. The bill
provides for nine Judges with the same
number of circuits. It was iutiiuatcd in
caucus the oilier night that the President
would veto tbe bill. . . : . , ..
The dta'.h of Senator Lane was an-
. i . . l tr
Kiuncefl in ooin nouses, in mo iiouee
of Representatives Mr. Clark, of Kansas,
said that he was aware of tbe fact that
Lane had regretted his vote against the
Civil Richts bill more than any other
act of his life, ' ' . '
The special committee appointed to
investigate the assault on W. H. Painter,
nearly finished their labor to-day. 1 hey
will report, it is believed, that Beveridge
shall remain in the close custody of the
House until the expiration of tbe preseHl
Congress, and that he be then turned
over to the civil authorities. The friends
of the prisoner' applied for a writ of
habeas corpus to-day, which was granted.
The return made by the Seraeant-at-Arms
was a certified copy of the House
order, ordering him to retain the cus
tody of the prisoner. The Judges sus
tained the return to the writ and quashed
the motion on the erouud that the Su
preme Court had decided in the case of
Anderson vs. Deerim (Cth i Whfiaton),
that the House had jurisdiction in its
coiire in a similar case.
The Clerk of the House deposited to
day in the bands of the Secretary of State
a certified copy of theFreedmen s Bureau
bill, which was passed on Monday
over the veto of the President. The bill
takes effect from its passage.
The President was so overwhelmed

to grant interviews to none bnt Senators
and members of Congress. He will en
force this rule until the end of the ses

Tbe prisoners were brought into Court
under a guard of negro soldiers, aad
plead not guilty. Ruby testifies thai h
came here in January, ls64, and was
appointed teacher by Gen. Banks. He
was educated in the High School at Port
land. In June he went to open a school
at Jackson, La, and attempted to get a
building ; several were empty, but none
wonld rent to him. He was notified that
be could not keep a nigger school, and
Hazzard, Harris and Shultz uttered
threats. On the 24th of July he was
dragged one mile to a creek aad beaten
by some thirty men with blackened faces
with a paddle and told to leave. Com
missioner Shannon fixed the bail at two
thousand dollars each, to appear at the
November term. Jas. H. Morgan, coun

the prisoners were remanded till Friday,

Jsff, Davis.
The New York Trilu ne says: jlr.
Adams wrote to Mr. Seward so long ago
as June, 15, 1SC5, that intense interest
was manifested in Europe concerning the
fate of Jefferson Davis; that in his
opinion there had been slaughter enough,
and that be (Mr. Adams) would ba con
tent if Davis could be a aDd
sunk into oblivion. Mr. Seward replies
to Mr. Adams: - 'Tour eentimenu are
deemed just and wise.' After this ex
plicit declaration will it be pretended
that this Administration has had any
serious purpose of punishing Jefferson
Davis ? . Why then nave thev kept him
in prison and not tried him ?
Why only beoause Chief Justice
Chase and Judge Underwood can't bo got
to try him or giro him bail I And be
cause in deference to certain Radical
opinions, such as were hastily and mali
ciously shown in the House of Represen
tatives under the inscription of Mr. Bout
well, of Massachusetts, the President
hesitates to take the responsibility of
Aaroling him. ( v , ? '
We must respectfully suggest to the'
Radicals, that the quicker they shuffle
Davis into oblivion, the kinder history
will be to them.' That handcuffing scene
is a stigma, and eternal disgrace, that
every coming historian, and throughout
all time, will stamp, as are stamped like
base prison acts, in tbe world s chronicles.
j.V. i Express.
Bhsrmsn Disgusted. .
. Gen. Sherman is said to have beeu dis
gusted with the proceedings on the fourth
of July at Salem, Illinois. The Cairo
Democrat has this reference to the mat
ter:
Governor Oglesby, who during part of
the dnv was so drunk that be could not
move out of his room, became sober
enough to make a political harangue;
and. of course. Gen. Logan could not
lose the opportunity to denounce the
Democracy and talk political twaddle
three or four hours.
General Sherman was not pleased, and
he expressed his displeasure in a conver
sation with L'ol. J ticks, who so gnuanuy
defended Paducnh against lien, forrest
A gentleman in attendance at the eel
ebration overheard the following:
Col Hicks " General, the celebration
is a great success.
Gen. Sherman " It is, sir, a great sue'
cess.
Col. Hicks " I think there is too much
political talk for an occasion like this.
Uen. btierman A great aeal t
much, sir; a great deal too much."
And, with the Colonel, tbedeneral left
tbe crowd and walked down to the depot,
thoroughly disgusted.
' .The Rev Yotk City Fathers.
The New York JVi6ns thus talks
about tbe City Fathers of Gotham, who.
according to Greeley, are a body of un
common thieves. It would seem that a
Gas Company has been manipulating
them. These Gas Companies must be
terrible corporations :
" The uncommon scoundrels, who are
sometimes facetiously styled our City
Fathers, have earned the gigantic bribe
for which they have for three weeks been
bargaining and working, by passing,
over the Mayor's veto, their ordinance,
binding our tax-payers to pay, for twenty
years ensuing, the present high prices
tor lighting the streets with coal ins
none other being admitted to competi
tion. There is no regular thief in our
city whose effrontery would have sufficed
to carry him through this job ; but the
uncommon scoundrels will brazen it out,
and actually show their faces ' in the
streets within the next fortnight.
"We now give notice thnt an earnest
effort will be made next winter to abol
ish the Common Council of our city. It
does nothing but steal; and it does thnt
on so gigantic a scale that the city can
no longer afford the expensive luxury of a
Common Council. If the members would
simply take their $50,000 each and have
done with it, we might endure it; but
they steal s clumsily that every $100,000
they divide costs the city at least $1,0110,
000. Let the ruinous nuisance be aba
ted, wholly and forever! '
"Civil Rights" at a Sisceunt.
The people of Kentucky don't seem to
take kindly to the ncgro-tlevation
schemes of the Jacobin Congress, which,
we suppose, is additional evidrineeofan
inclination toward "the rebel Courier
Democracy." Last County Court dny,
in our neigboring town of Versailles,
quite a strong inclination of this prevail
ing sentiment was fnrnished. A negro
man, we are informed, coolly seated him
self at the table of the Sbeltcn House
and ordered dinner, whereupon Captain
Campbell, the proprietor, not hnving the
fear of Charles Sumner and Thud. Ste
vens before him, seized him l.y the col
lar and kicked him out. Released at
last, upon the sidewalk, from the iron
gripe of the incensed host, "the man and
brother" indulged in certain remarks
which sounded to un Radical ears very
much like impertinence, the scene whs
brought to a close by Cuffee's receiving
a pretty severe drnbbing, uhi afierwaids
being lodged in jail for disorderly con
duct Lezinylun Gazette. '
The Mexican Fxiprets. .
A rtoent letter from the Mexican cap
ital describes the Empress Carlotta :
"Maria Carlotta Amalia Augusta Victo
ria Clementina Leopoldina (royaly only
can sport such long names) was twenty
six years old on the day of the celebra
tion. She is of medium bight, slight
figure, light hair, blue ryes, square face,
showing much vigor and determination.
Her Majesty wore a mauve silk, And a
beautiful crape bonnet ; no jewelry ex
cept a diamond pin. Hundreds of la
dies present were more expensively and
showily dressed, but none with so good
taste. I thought, as I closely scanned
her Majesty, that in dress, at all eveuts,
she might serve as a model which the
wives and daughters of ' plain Ameri
cans' might copy with advantage. She
was attended by several maids of honor,
one of whom was an Indian, a de
scendant of the old line of Mexican
King,." '

DELATED DISPATCHER
From Washington.
WASIHSGTOlt, July 19. Gov. Brown
low's dispatch, announcing the action of
the Legislature on the Constitutional
Amendment, was as follows: "The bat
tle has been fought and won. The Con
stitutional Amendment was carried in
the House ty forty-three against eleven.
Two of Johnson's creatures refused to
vote. Give my respects to the dead dog
atili" White JIouso," '
Speakor Colfax expressed the opinion
on Stevens'i extraordinary resolution,
that although it was a new question, yet
if the two Houses took a recess, they
could authorize their presiding officers
to call them together, at some day during
that recess: but this resolution contem
plated an indefinite and conditional re-
cess, and it congress aajournea sina un,
no power but that of the President could
convene them in advance of the regular
session. :
Trumbull sarcastically suggested that
it would be well to provide in the resolu
tion that if the President of the Senate
and Speaker of the House disagreed as
to whether they could re-convene Con
gress, there should be some umpire to de
cide the matter. The Speaker said by
the terms of the resolution the recess
could not be terminated and Congress
again convened unless the presiding offi
cers of both Houses agreed. The reso
lution was then withdrawn to.be re
newed. ' . 'i ' u
There was much excitement in the
House over the ratification of the Con
stitutional Amendment by Tennessee,
and the efforts of Bingham to have the
State at once restored, to her practical
relations with the Union was strongly
opposed by Stevens and bis followers.
The Republicans, with the Democrats
who voted on that side,' were in the ma
jority and prevented an adjournment,
and voted down all other motions made
by Stevens. Bingham finally got his res
olution to admit the Representatives be
fore the House, when it adjourned. Tbe
question will come op to-morrow. '

7N THE YEAR 1M0, THE WRITER EM
I barked in the drug business in the vity o(
Pliiltulelohia. and while thus ens'sged. made
several oaporiuieata in regard to the moat de
sirable mode of preparing Fluid Eitracts. My
efforts being successful the articles being ap
proved aud used by ".he Medical fiu nlty-I was
desirous of placing them bct'o'O the politic, bnt
hesitated for some time before concluding to re
sort to newspaper advertising, knowing of the-
pnuuiiioos that existed in lue uiiuusoi many
against using advertised Mtdicinn or A'ostram.,
but tbroujrb (he advice of frienda aud those who
had used them this objection was overcome.
Alter eighteen years' exertiona. commencing
in a small way, the populnriiy of my articles
hm extended to all parts of the United States,
and widely throughout foreign countries and
this in the face of much opposition. Every
menus lias been Toorled t by unprincipled
dealers siuee Uieir merit and success have been
known so. Ii as advertising larger Lotties at
le.s pri e. consunng all ul her preparations, and
even copying my advertisements -but I atu
happy to state that out of the many who havo
reported to this, none have been aucuesnl'ul.
My object in Una noiioe is to make foots
known to the publio and respectable dealers,
bolivvtng, alter so many years' exertions, that
the Druificists will discountenance i-ucli pro
ceedings, and that the reputation nf niy articles
ay not be daiuageii uy tne use oi inicrtor or
spurious ones.
Knowing mai many mny renu tins ario-iu
who are unacnuaiuiv.d wilii me. 1 append a few
remarks from those of my native eity, and whoso
names are known in all parts of the world : '
ili ing persnrnliy acquainted witn air. n, l

From tho Evening Bulletin, Philadclphivl ,
" When on a visit to thecity nf New York, a
few days since. I was induced to rail on our old
friend and townsman, Mr. H. T. Hclmbold,
Druggist. 594 Broadway, New York. His attire
is a HtorlW a perfect pent the hand'omest of
any kind we have evor had the p'ensuro of
viewing. nd to extensive, being Si feet front,
five stories in hight. and over US) foot deep. It
iodoed affords us much pleasuro to know that
he has been o successful, aud ills ample evi
dence of the menu of his articles as in our
whole business experience wo have not known
of tho success of any artielas without ate"'
advertising merely bringing tbe luuie before
the people."
From tho Boston Herald.)
