That is th. naked truth of tbe matter. Th. same eorreeoondent re Dienti the nmnnalilnn tn aAnd Gen. f orrest as a K""- ... rl-lmrate as being " met with decided op no.iiinn " Thia. also, we think wide of th. mark. Some two or three speeches were made against the appointment of Gen. Forrest. But the rote, when it was taken, was fire to on in bis favor. There was really no opposition to him, except a crooked stick from the southeast cor ner, and a little ex-lieutenant of the East Tennessee Federal volunteer militia. It was apparent to all tbe best minds of the Convention that Gen. Forrest was not excelled, as conserratir and pru 'dent politician by any man in the State. No man could be further than be from ' beginning new diffi culties, or renewing tbe old. And there was no more earnest advocate for peace and fraternity, with justice to all The only real objection to his appointment as a delegate was tbe fear that it might have some air of rebellion about it, and give a weapon to the radical antagonist But this was sufficiently met by the an iW Hon V. was a true conservative and frieniTjbf peace,. and that all -suspected iDjory arising from bis appoint ment would be more than overcome by his action in the convention. There it would be seen that the wo'rst rebel in the Southwest was one of the most conserva tive men of tbe body, and tbe argument would be. even among tbe Kadicals.nnat if niir worst men were thus patriotic and law-abiding, the remainder of tbe South might well enough be trusted. The ob jections to him were the result oi, pe culiar and differing views of expe diency, and had no fonndaUou in a doubt of bis conservatism, and will not have in anything which may super vene on bis appointment Although we may have entertained a similar appre hension at first that his appointment would be injudicious by reason of preju dice against bim, we are of opinion that th. result will be good and rather advan tageous than injurious, in the fact that hia nresenee io New York will undo pre judice against both bim and ourselves at borne.

You are here from tne tiaai ano West, and you are nere rrom mo anuuio, to swear to the Constitution of theUnited State; and, if it be possible by any act of yours, to redeem this down-trodden country from the feet of the despoiler.

I do not stand here to discuss mat en.puit m um u:.... i,;r.k a kin naaanrl. Thia is not the first rebellion that was ever known. There is a difference between our reDei lion and that of '76, via : Our was un successful and theirs was successful. Success sanctities tbe mean without the motives. Whence came this war through which we have gone? One says it was Sew arn and hia allies. Another that it wa Jeff. Davis and his allies. It came from antagonism antagonism tound in in camp of Washington while he held Bog ton io siege. It was found in bis Cabinet when he became President, ine reoei- lion did not have its origin upon the subject of slavery. 1 hose Kadicais from tbe Northeast, wbo are crying so for the colored peooie, were 100 authors and importers of lavery from Alrica. inese are me men u much about their love for the Southern alaves. It is all humbug, and they will find it to be so in less than five years. This antagonism went on increasing in force and volume. Did we not try to prevent it? Did not men trom tbe North and South, men mat lovea .n. anM ,k. r.mA iha Pnnatitntion and Union, did tbey not exhaust themselves trying to prevent this terrible strife?

More than two million 01 men ara mtiatarinff for tb great campaign. Their columns can be seen and heard for miles around; they ar marcning under national airs, me ism. ira mav were played at Yorktown and New Or leana; they are marching under that old banner, with no new emblems, tbe same plain old banner which gives liberty to all. the Constitution the supreme- law, and the right of all men to vote ; a ban-1 ner that means mat mis is wmn muu B government White men did make tuie government, white men have preserved it, and white men are capabls of pre serving it; and by the grace of God tbey intend to do iL This vast army, as I said, is moving, and it expects, by the time it reaches the summit of the politi cal mountain, that it will be joined by ill great leader, who is coming forth on . . , - t 1 . n '1 l- .: the 4'u 01 aiuiy next iiucn mo tuiuo will rinir out an order to march, such an echo will reverberate over this land as was never' heard before. Their destiny is in tbe future. Who that favorod lead er will be, I will not undertake to say; but, my friends, this work cannot be ac complished without effort. The A lmigbty basso organized His domains that, noth ing can be achieved without laws. If this thing is worm aovming, 11 is worm working for. Those of us who cannot vote can speak and reason. Do these men wbo happen now to hold the reios expect to ride us nnder the saddle and, in the language of Jefferson, " Boot and spur us by the grace of God." Tbe vic tory that awaits will not bring tbe dark drapery that covers us ; with sorrow. Success can be achieved it we ara true to ourselves. By courage, oy mat power of endurance, whether . at the ballot-box or field of. battle, we surely can rise up some day to the dignity of our birth-right. In my opin ion that day is approaching. Whoever the convention at New York nominates, I am for him agaiost everybody else. I have, personally, a first choice, and a second choice, but when that convention speaks, I shall have but one choice. He shall be the man above whom these ban ners shall be placed. When that time comes I shall feel like Rob Roy, when re turning to his native land, he Baid, " My feet are on my native oeain, and my name ia McGregor." I thank you for your patience in hearing these remarks, and I say that you bave one among you who mourns the condition of your coun try, and I will swear, if it is necessary, by tbe sou ot Tennessee woico gave me birth, by all the fountains, streams, mountains and plains, that I never will worship the gods of Radicalism.
