RUNNING THK GOVERNMENT.
Th New York Exvress aYS that i
nppph in the Senate, the other day
"hlnod-let line Chandler" laid: "If
Andrew Johnson ia an obstacle in the
way, it would be found out by July
whether or not we can run ine uoveru
ment withont him."
" Run the Government without him I"
This fullow'i idea of Government is.
that it ia a thing to be "run" like a saw
mill, or a blacksmith's shop, or a grind-
atone, for the persqnal emolument of
die runners. This Government ii now
"run" for the benefit of luch
barbarians as Chandler, and
such platitudinarians as Sumner.
The old idea of administering public
affairs upon great principles and for the
pood of the people, is exploded. The
system of checks that originated in dis
trust of human nature and in fear of
just such a state of things as we have
now, is destroyed. One department was
designed to balance with another, and
all balance together. ' Legislative power
was given to a Congress. The Executive
authority was committed to a President.
The interpretation of the law was given
to the Judiciary. Up to the election of
Lincoln, there was no collision, but the
Supreme Court was universally recog
nized as the final arbiter of questions
arising under the Constitution and laws.
The President was invested with the
veto power as a safeguard against hasty,
passionate and unconstitutional legisla
tion. It has rarely occurred ia the his
tory of our Government that a majority
of two-thirds of Congress could bo ob
tained to pass bills over the veto.
Parties have been nearly equally divided,
and this resulted from the fact that they
were national. The moment a party
purely sectional ebtained possession of
Government, the Congress became su
preme. That department discards the
Executive and Judiciary Departments,
and, in the language of Chandler, can
"run the Government without them." If
Congress can run the Government with
out the President, surely it can run it
without the Courts. If without these
departments, can it not dispense with
the people, and declare its authority
perpetual ? The great principle involved j
in the coDtroveray between the President
and Congress ia apparent to all who ob
serve the course of events. A party
purely sectional is struggling to shape
the Government so as to consolidate its :
own power, and render any efforts of the I
people to restore it to its ancient charac
ter of nationality, abortive. How well
this party has succeeded may be ascer
tained by referring to the history of the
last Congress. But it is idle,' perhaps,
to discuss this subject There is scarce
ly anything to hope for of good when
such men as Chandler hold the helm
and drive the old ship among the
rocks.
THE CONVENTION TO-MORROW.
We have little to say of the Conven
tion 'that will meet to-mwrow in the
Greenlaw building. That little shall be
directed to a single point. We desire to
see, and the conservative people deairi
to see, sound and strong men put for
ward. They must be with us against all
the world. No man is entitled to the
position of Representative except on ac
count of his fit a ess for it. Of that, the
people, not himself, must be the judges.
No man has a right to be offended if be
is not nominated. Offices belong to th'e
people, and be who flies in their faces
because they cannot discover his merits,
proves himself unfit to be their Repre
sentative. We do not believe
that any Conservative, whether
he be an aspirant or not, will fail to sup
port the nominees of the convention.
We shall support them, though they be
men to whom we do not speak on the
streets, provided always, that their oppo
sition to the Brownlow Radical djnasty
is assured. We desire harmony, and
counsel harmony, and shall oppose any
man who opposes harmony. We must,
in the next struggle, redeem the State,
or be reduced still lower in the scale of
citizenship. We have a desperate foe to
Ceht, who will require all our energies.
We shall have no time to fight among
ourselves. Whoever, claiming to be with
us, shall attempt to hurl Greek fire into
our ranks, should be summarily dis
posed of-eot over to to the Radicals. We
warn all men against creation a division
in the Conservative ranks. We know of
none disposed to be troublesome. We

THI RUINED SOUTH.
A ' Democratic' paper . or the North :
says if Washington, Jeffarson, Madison,
etc., the great founder! of the American
Union, could coma to Ufa again aod wit- J
oeai the apectacle of Virginia their I
own glorioui Virginia crerrun, deaola-l
ted, plundered and prostrate at tl et
of Massachusetts, aud their negro ser
vants distorted into a hideous and loath
some equality with their own descend
ants, tbey would, no doubt, wish they
never had been born into a world that
could be transformed Into such a scene of
horror. Indeed, it is only reasonable to
say that if the veil of the future had
been temporarily lifted, and Washington
and Jefferson permitted to see Virginia
as she is at this moment, tbey would
have preferred crucifixion, burning at
the stake, or the most horrible ' death
that the human imagination can con
cejve of, rather than doom Virginians
and their own descendants to such a
fate, or rather than form a " Union
that could be transformed into such a
hell of horrors as that they are no
plunged into. There ia nothing in the
history of the past, no approach even in
the ravages of Allila or Ghengis Kahn,
nothiqg whatever In the
Dole hiBtory of
human wrong, crime and suffering, that
equals, or indeed that casts any light on
the nameless and unpronouncable
crimes committed on the poople south
nf tha Pntnmar. I
OFFICIAL CORRUPTION.
A New Orleans paper says it "appears
by a great variety ot facts and proofs
that under the administration of the
revenne in this city, vast frauds have
been committed, and a system of cor
ruption and a relaxation ot law estao
lisbed, by which the' treasury of the
nation has been defrauded ' to an
enormous extent, ana nonesi ana
legitimate trade burdened, oppressed and I
damaged to a degree that has no paral
lel in tbe historv of this country. It is
charged, and not without good reason,
that this malversation and corruption
pervade, nearly every branch of the
revenue department unices inerein
are sought with an eagerness not justified
bv their lawful emoluments. The mdi-
ect or outside profits, .derived from
vast and systematized black-mailing, are
regarded as opening a sure path to rapid
fortunes. There have been marvelous
examples of sudden transformation in
brief period from extreme destitution or
moderate condition to independence and
wealth, throngh tbe exercise of this
magic wand. The salaries of offices are
scarcely regarded by these aspiring
Crcctusa. Indeed they would be will
ing to pay bonuses for such places.
Once secure in place, the agents and
detectives of tbe government, even those
high in position at tbe capital, can !e
easily eluded or silenced.". .'
LET IT BE REMEMBERED.
Tbe Nashville Union desires it to be
remembered, and so do we, that while'
iub ycupic vi ' fctwus i
nder taxation, tbe Radical Legislature
vnterl itself nav in cold, or forty oer cent
premium upon the currency that the
people are compelled to nse in their
business transactions.
Let it be remembered that nearly one-
half of the school fund in the custody of
'I
-
ine oiaie covernmeui is eun uuau- i
counted for. and that the air is black
with snrmises that it is gone for good
Let it be knovn that, notwithstanding
the impoverished condition of tbe peo
ple of tbe State, taxes are five times
heavier than in 1660, and the govern
ment is borrowing from week to week to
meet our current demands, with the
uly interest looming op wholly unpro-
idsd for; and Tennessee bonds at sixty-
three cents on tbe dollar.
Let it be borni in mind that every
loyal militiaman enrolled, will increase
the taxation, and that the Slate govern
ment threatens this measure to the full
extent of its power.
L0TA11ZINO.
Tbe Goodman (MissJ Star says: "It
is well understood that certain gentle
men of the elephantine order, wbo live,
move and have their being in this section
of the Slate, contemplate making a pil
grimage at an early day to headquarters
at Vicksburg, for the purpose of making
fair weather, if possible, with Gen. Ord,
Aud to this end they are diligently en
gaged in getting up certificates of loyalty,
which certificates are to be laid before
the officer aforesaid, with every expecta
tion that be will view these precious doc
uments with favoring eyes."
EDITOR OORE.
Tbaddens Sanford, an old newspaper
editor of Mobile, Ala., died in that city
on the 30ih of April.1 He was long the
editor of tbe Mobile Kdvertittr and L'ey- I
Uter. He went to Mobile in Ike v,ar
1822, and became tbe proprietor and
editor of lbe Jfrgitter in 1628, and con
tinned to manage that paper for twenty
six years. He was for eleven years
President of the Mobile Bank, His death
is deeply mourned by his intimate friends,
and generally regretted throughout the
State,

Bar The majority in Congress are
sending such' men as Wilsen, Kelly and
Nye to the South to create excitement
and organize insurrections among the

Stevens in his bill before Congress. '
ITWe regret to announce that Hon.
S. S. Marshall, of Illinois,' died at his
residence at McLeansborough, a few
days ago. Mr. Marshall was one of the
leading Democrats of that State, a gal
lant and true gentleman, and one who
will he sadly missed by the people whose
trusted representavive he was.
How Brownlow's Militia Works.
If Brownlow's militia is not a fixed
fact, k is only because so outrageous
fact is difficult to fix. It is only half a
fact and therefore only half fixed. The
part that is fixed, is very badly fixed.
Organized ostensibly to preserve order,
it ei ves us an example of violent disorder.
Read tbe following communication to the
Knoxville Commercial: , '
Editor Commercial: It may interest'

a Mr. Pennington had bis sknll badly

more or less injured by the promiscuous

there is no telling what bad whiskey and
Radicalism may do, or be instrumental
in doing, when armed and equipped ac
cording to Brownlow and our recent
Radical Legislature. ' -
The people in the counties of Clai

and outrage upon them of a standing

The Danger Before Ts.
Governor English, of Connecticut, is a
safe, strong and sagacious man. Of the
value of the precedent Congress has
made, be thus speaks in his message :
Will tbe preoedentthus set by Con
gress be forgotten? Will tbe Constitu
tion, which is impotent to restrain tbe
fury of a majority to day, become tbe
sacred shield it once was for the minority
to-morrow T Will the sword that is so
easily drawn to establish a constitution
now, be allowed to rest in its sheath if
needed to overthrow a constitution here
after T It has been tbe honest boast and
just glory of the soldier that he baa saved
to our people their old flag, without a
star displaced or a stripe broken but
useless bas been the sacrifice if the peo-
P'.e n? pr wsmisir ism iu con
slitulional government If tbe charter
of our liberties bas been lost, nothing has
been won. More than ever, at the pres
ent time, should any infraction of the
Constitution be regarded as a public
calamity. - By tbe vast increase of oar
public indebtedness every question which
concerns the government credit comes
home to every person fh the land. By
that credit all values are measured. It
lies at tbe foundation of all our wealth,
our industry of sooiely itself. No
calamities of the past can exceed those
which will befall as if tbe public credit
should give way. But how is it to be
preserved if the supreme law f tbe laud
is itself repudiated T In what market of
tbe world is that government trusted
which is swayed by revolutionary fac
tions, intent only npon the gratification
of ambition or the indulgence of partisan
resentment T Had the efforts of Con
gress beea properly directed, the industry
aad trade of the whole) ooantry would
long siaoe have felt the grateful influence
ae the public credit been strengthened.

' Richmond, May 7. The United States
District Court, Judge Underwood pre
siding, has commerced its session,
Among the members of the Grand Jury
are J. Minor Botts, James Segar, L,
Mackenzie and five negroes. The Judge
in his charge to the jury congratulated
them and said that though it had been
threatened with destruction by assassin
ationyet, thanks to Congress, it met now
in security. This prompted better things
for Richmond, a city where the press
has reached tbe very lowest depths ot
degradation ; the pulpit has been prostl
tuted by ministrations of gay Lotharios,
and licentiousness had ruled until half
tbe children were illegitimate. The jury
would have a good deal of work, much
of it created by demooratizatioa people,
and by so disloyal a press, which had
encouraged perjury and counterfeiting
to cheat the Government , He called at
tention to the fact that negroes were not
allowed the freedom of street cars.
