Tt romncii to an advertisement in nother column, it will be seen that J. H. McMahon has accepted a permanent agency of the St. Louia Mutual Life Insurance Company. The reader will also find full particulars concerning the Company. It is of Col. ' McMahon we desire to say a few words. If any one whose eye may happen to fall npon this paper, does not know him, or has not heard of bira, he must be very deeply involved in the mazes of youth, 'or the depths of deafness. Col. McMahon, without being an old man, is the father of th press of Memphis. He com menced the work of forming public Opinion on this bluff when there was little else here than ravines, thickets, squirrels, and now and then, a stray wolf. He remembers when a part of the space occupied by Odd Fellows Hall, was a deep gully. The city has grown up, under his ye, and to his pen and conversation, its progress is much indebted. We said he was the father of the Memphis press. What his progeny bus grown to be, can be ascertained by reference U our city journals, great stal wart fellows, with sense in their heads, principle in their souls and battle axes on their shoulders. Keeping pace with the march of progress, he has lived to see the fruits of his long labors hanging in clusters for miles and miles away, but the property ofothert. Having retired from journalism, he leaves to his successors the work which he did with so much skill. Accepting the agency of the company referred to, he is prepared to serve the public in another, but not less useful capacity. Assurance of life, at this day of doubt and danger, is, in our opinion, one of the first duties of those who will leave behind them either poverty or riches. No man can tell what J a day may bring forth. Dear ones who feast while we live, mBy cry for bread the day after we are buried. Whatever else may happen, the widow and orphans of a deceased husband and father who assures his life, are provided for. The company of which Colonel McMahon is ' agent, is responsible in the highest de gree. It is only necessary to Btate to the public bis relation to it, to commend it to the citizens of Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas. CHICAGO. The city of Chicago seems to be bent on making an anti-Southern record. A committee, says a St. Louis paper, was lately appointed by the Board of Trade of Chicago, for the purpose of soliciting subscriptions for the relief of famishing people in the South. That committee has finiihed its labors and reported that they could do neit to nothing. Their success was so small that they declined to state the amount that had been col lected. It was moved and carried by the Board that the subscribers be refunded the amount of their subscriptions. It was subsequently ascertained that the whole amount was $225. Mr. Carter H. Harrison, of Chicago, undertook volun tarily to raise a fund for the South. He likewise failed, and he publishes a card proposing to return to the subscribers the meagre amounts he received rather than forward them in the. name of Chicago. The Chicago Timet, printed under the noses of these soulless wretches, thus alludes to them : To say that the wealthy -inhabitants of Chicago have thoroughly disgraced themselves in this matter would be high praise in comparison to the lan guage of censure which they deserve. KotMnly hare they brought a reproach upon the good name of Chicago which will live in the memory of mankind for ever. It i in the hearing of startling cries for succor that the self-righteous ness of great, rich and prosperous Ch cago turns coldly away to count its gains made from the ruin and desolation of war, and to let white men, women and children, people of their own blood and kind, perish of starvation. The hideous- nee of the bloated satyr gloating over his hoard and mocking the cries of fam ishine children for bread, cannot be overdrawn. HEW MOVE. It is said that some eight hundred of the citizens of Davenport, Iowa, have assembled and put in nomination a peo ple's ticket, whose platform is opposition to Radicalism, Maine-law-ism, niram Trice-ism, and all the other isms of the fanatics now in power. If Iowa shall ever be redeemed from lie curse of Rad ical politicians, it will be hy an uprising amnr.g the people. The movement startf well in Davenport, asd promises succesa. NEGRO SUFFRAGE AT THK RORTH. Some considerable importance was at tached to the debalo in the Senate to day, wherein it was maintained by two Souators that Congress could enforce negro suffrage in any Northern btate by virtue of the second section of the con stitutional amendment aooiisiuua; very. A bill for that purpose is already nendins in that body. bxenang. We are glad to see this test applied to the North, and shall see whether in action will swallow the dose it is ad mlni.tnrinir to the South. The idea that the Constitutional Amendment has a application to ths South that it ha not to the North, admits a divided country n,l . tn faped Constitution. Will the Great Statoi of New York and Ohio per mit Congress to force negro suffrage on il,.m hv virtue of the Constitutional "J - Amendment, or otherwise T The Demo crats of these States will oever consent The Radical Central Committee of th former have decided that it is impolitic for the party to commit itself to univer sal suffrage at this time. Why impo litic ? Because such a policy might hurt them at the polls because the people are opposed to ncgra voting in the North. In the South it is all right SUDDEN DEATH. The New Orleana Times of the' 29th says: nnen me uouse ui nvprvseuia ... i tt r T ) . tives took a, recess, yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock to 6 p.m., the Hon. K. J. Preaux, a representative from Orleans, and chairmen of the Committee on ha rollments, was in good health, and more than ordinarily busied in the discharge nf his verv arduous duties.. When the House met again at 1 p.m., he was a corpse, and laid out in the library ef the building. Ilia sudden demise was the result of organic disease of the heart, and he died whilst in the very aot of "super vising the enrollment of a bill which had I, .1 T 1 . .. .V..- just been passea oy tue utguiaurc, w nishing bis existence at the very post of duty, and almost at the very last hour f the session. tQT A negro was invited to vote at a late election in San Antonio, but pro tested vehemently against exercising the riirhtof suffrage UDon compulsion. His words are memorable: "I'se got no vote, and I don't want none nohow." THE ELECTIVE FMJiCIIISE. The Tenneaseo Decision. The St Louis Republican says of the recent decision of the Supreme Court of Tennessee : If the telecratih report of the decision of the Supreme Court of Tennessee be correct, it enunciates doctrines at war with the first principles of self-government. The elective franchise, as it is called, is assumed by that Court to be a granted right Granted by whom 7 That Court says by the sovereignty of the people. But that is begging the ques tion. The very question is, what is the sovereignty of the people? The sover eientv of the people consists in the right to exercise political power; the right to govern themselves. It is not a granted right, but the birthright of every Amer ican ireeman. u is not conuueu iu a few or to many, but belongs to all alike. In the language of the Declaration of Independence "All men are created equal, ana are enaowea oy meir Creator with certain maiienaoie rignta. Among these are life, liberty and the ursuit of hatminess." In the term of fib er fy, as here used, it included the elec tive franchise. It is not in fact a fran chise in the French sense of that word, hich means a privilege granted by a sovereign to his subjects, but it is a franchise in the American sense of the word, which is applied to tbe right to vote or participate in the affairs of the Government means a right rtstrvei to the citizen as originally belonging to im, and not a right granted, to him by superior power. It is an inalienable right Each individual consenting to form a republican government, though for that purpose he may give up some of his natural rights, must necessarily re tain this right, otherwise be becomes a lave, and the government se formed is ot republican. Where the numbers are few, the powers of the government might be exercised by the people in their col lective capacity. But in this country that would be impracticable the num bers are too creat and hence the people can only act by delegating a portion ot their sovereignty to a select body. In forming a constitntion, as the people are too many to act in their collective capacity, the usual way is to select by vote a body of men fur that purpose, called a Comlilutional Contention. When such a convention is organized hat power docs it possess? surely not the entire sovereignty of the people, as the supreme Court ot lennessee as sumes. But it only baa such powers as the people intended to delegate to it Such -a convention is not called to abol- b the reterved rinhtt of the people. These rights cannot be infringed by it The very object of such a convention is to form a constitution or government for the protection of the people in their re served rights, among which is the elec tive franchise. Ibe lennessee Conven- on had no power to abolish this fran chise, nor could it delegate such power to (be Legislilure. it it possessed the power to lake away this reserved right from a part of the people, it might do so from all, and assume to itself all politi cal power, aad thus create a despotism istead ot a rr publican government, he idea that a Constitutional Conveo on has the right to abolish the elective franchise or withhold it from those who never parted with it, is too absurd to need refutation, and if each an idea bad been advanced ten years ago it would have been treated with utter contempt let the supreme Court of lennessee a forced to assume the very absurdity as a political axiom, in order to get round the decision of the Supreme Court of the united Mates in tbe case of the state of Missouri vs. Cummings. Tbe Tennessee Court, evidently embarrassed by the plain aud comprehensive terms of the decision in that case, dismisses it with the nnlounded assumption, that tbe elective franchise, which every American freeman knows is bis birthright, is "a political privilege or grant that may be extended or recalled at the will of sov ereign power." Who is thit sovereign power? Is not the American citizen, whose birthright is thus attempted to be abolished, an essential part of that very sovereignty T And when you take away that reserved right, yon abolish our system of government aud erect in stead a despotism, no matter by what name J on call it The elective franchise is not a granted right but a birthright, protected bj the decision of th Supreme Court of th L uited State, above refer red to, aad comet directly within th spirit, if not in the very terms, of tint decision.
