It has been officially announced that martial law ii to be declared in a larja number of the counties of West and Mid dle Tennessee. To every right thinking maa in Tennessee, thia must be regarded as the crowning act of infamy, and brands our authorities as wretches wholly devoid of tha least regard for the rights of the people, and tht peace and prosperity of the State. It certainly is deplorable, when those whom fortune has wafted into antherity, use their power for the sole purpose of oppressing and tyrannizing over the peo ple. There is no instance in history of such heartless and merciless crnelty as Brownlow has manifested toward the people of Tennessee. He has pursued them with a devilish and nnrelenting policy of hate, for the last four years, which has met with the just condemna tion of all honest men of his own party. It is the greatest folly to argue that there exists such a condition of affairs in any county of the State, as could afford the least excuse for declaring martial law. In no eouniy ef the State hare the courts or their officers been Interrupted in the discharge of their duly. Individual instances have occurred where bands of irresponsible men have taken the law into their own bonds, and punished offenders, but these instances have been where the offenders were guilty of the worst crimes known to the laws. We hear of like in stances in loyal Indiana, and elsewhere, yet these have not met with the condem nation of but a small number of tha Rad ical press. The act of September 10, 1868, was amply sufficient to eaable sheriffs to pre serve the peace ; yet in but a very few instances have tbey deemed it necessary to avail themselves of its provisions, simpljlbeckuae tbe necessity did not exist, although they are, with but a few excep tions, Radicals of the darkest stripe. The counties that are to be placed under martial law, by the edict of this merciless tyrant, are among the most peaceable and prosperous ia the State; and from a personal knowledge of many of them, we know that the courts are open, and fully competent to protect every one in the enjoyment of life and property. Bat tbe secret of the whole thing must le apparent to every candid mind. Tbe scallawags who misrepresent the people at Nashville must be insured of a reelection, and hence the negroes must be reorganised under tbe wing of the military, and the whites intimidated. It is only wbere great public danger threatens tbe State, that the Governor is authorized to declare martial law and suspend the writ of habeas corpus. It was intended that this extraordinary power should be exercised only in cases of imminent peril to the State in cases of invasion or insurrection. These prin ciples are too well settled and known to be misunderstood. Martial law presup poses such a condition of affairs as ren ders it impossible for the courts to exe cute the laws, and insure protection to the citizen in the enjoyment of life and property, and only when such a condi tion of affairs exists is tbe Governor justified in suspending the oivil law and resorting to the strong arm of the mili tary. No person of sane mind will contend that such a condition of affairs exists in any portion of the State. It is mon strous to hold that the Governor can, upon the merest pretext, declare martial law, close the conrts and suspend the writ of habeas corpus, and thereby place the lives and property of the citi zens at the mercy of a petty military satrsp. and deny to them the privilege of a trial by a jury of their countrymen. If such is the fact, then indeed are the guarantees of our Bill of Rights worth no more than the paper upon which they ere written. We have long since come to the conclusion that a written constitution was of no more avail thaa a rop of sand, in protect! pg tbe people ia their rights against the encroachments of an nnscrupulous despotism. If, then, a cit izen can be arrested by a military tyrant, consigned to a prison, tried, convicted br a drGm-betd court martial. S.zi 12 E- isbed, witbont any violation of the law of the land, denied a trial by a jury of his cenntrymen, then indeed his republican government ceased to exist in this coun try, and has been superceded by tbe worst of all tyrannies a military despotism. TUa Arkanaae Haynaa. Tbe Lord obasteneth those whom He loves. Tbe Egyptians were afflicted with olouds of vermin and lioe beoanse they would not let the Children of Irael de part in peace. We are loth to kaow what great sin tbe people of onr city have been guilty of, tbat they should be afflicted with this infeetnoui wretch Clayton, whose crimes against God an humanity have shocked the Christie world. We think that his visit to onr city is about tha coolest piece of im pndence that we have ever heard of. That our good people should be compelled to breathe the same air. much less tolerate the presence of this inhuman monster, is re volting to the feelings of all Christian people. That the virtuous people of our city flee from his presence as they would from the plague is not to be wondered at while the sordid and political lepers of onr own State will grasp the hand now reeking with the blood of innocent men and hover around him like tbe carrion crow. We hope onr people will sho him that reirard which bis crimes merit, and pass him by with contempt and with ering scm. Horrible Outrage ia Missouri. Inn tha fit. Lonll Republican. 22d.l On Wednesday afternoon there were vaano rnmora circulated on the streets of Belleville, tbat toe grave oi toe uaugnier of one of tha old and moat respected citi zens of St. Clair county, who had resided for manv rears near MascouUh, bad been opened by some inhuman fiends, and the hndv mvasiea oi various articles ui jew elrr. and also of certain articles of cloth- inir in which the deceased had been dressed before her burial. Tbe bare men tion of such a circumstance was so horri ble in its nature, that but few of the citi zens gave credence to tbe report. With tbe view of ascertaining the truth in the nremises. we made arrangements with a gentiemaa resiaeni in niascouiaa, iu iu quire into the truth of the rumor, and ., .. . v wbo, in a letter received oy us tms morn ing, confirms the report in all its horrid barbarity. Since then additional facts have come to light, which may be briefly stated as follows: On last Monday, the remains of Miss Mae me McCarres, a lovely and interest ins cirl oi eighteen, the only daughter and child of Mr. Edward McCarren, an old and highly esteemed citizen of this county, living near Maacoutan, were con signed to the grave. The fnneral took place about two o'clock in the afternoon. Next day, about tbe same hour) the grief-stricken parents paid a visit to the grave ol their darling child, to water it anew with their tears. Judge of their feelings of horror to find that the grave had been tampered with; and to allay the horrible suspicion that took ahape and form in their minds, tbe grave was reopened, when it became apparent tbat tbe tomb bad been ruthlessly invaded tbe night previous. The clothes in which their beloved daughter was buried had been stripped from her body, together with tbe ornaments upon her person, and carried away as booty. The body was in such a disarranged condition as to require it to be redressed and rein terred. Tbe angnish of the fond parents at this gross indignity and outrage can not be described. We have learned that tbe distressed parents hare caused the remains of their beloved child to be in terred in the garden contiguous to their residence, where it is hoped she will be permitted to repose in peace. Bobbery. Last Saturday, Mr. James Adkinson, having sold bis cotton at big figures, started for home with his pocket full of money. He lives near Blanton's Chapel, and night overtook bim long before he reached home. When ha had reached the open wood just beyond tbe residence of Mrs. Ike Voorbies, about six miles from Columbia, on the aid Morfreesboro road, says the Colombia Herald, e saw a body of mounted men just in advance of him. 8uspecting from their warlike appearance tbat he was at their mercy, he quietly but quickly took out his pocketboak, and dropped it in the road behind him. Sure enough they baited him, and caused him to dismount, evi dently with tbe intention of robbing bim. He happened to have a few dol lars in loose change, which they imme diately took charge of Mr. A. being then dismissed by the robbers, be pro ceeded a shortdistance, hitched bis horse, and having satisfied binnelf tbat tbey were gone, be went back to tbe place wbere be bad been robbed, and searched about in the road for his money. He finally recovered it, and went on his way rejoicing. Although tbe robbers were not masked be did not recognize any of them, nor does be even know whether they were white or black, the night was so dark. Union and American. Strange Amputation-Feat of a Tosng Bargaon. Last Sunday two little boys, one a son of Mr. Andrew James and tbe other of a widow lady, Mrs. Wukerson, aged re spectively thirteen and ten years, went out to bunt rabbits. Tbey soon ran a " molly cottor,-:ail into a bellow tree of medium size, which the little fellows cut down with their axes. The ba'.t end of tbe tree lodge on tbe slump, and the elder boy thrust his arm into tie hollow to try and seize tbe rabbit. In doing so he shoved tbe butt oft' tbe stump, and it fell, imprisoning his arm against the roots so that be could not extricate it- The younger boy was panic stricken. He could do nothing for his companion, wbo vainly endeavored n induce bim to leave and go for help. Finally, young James, after enduring tbe pain of his situation as long as possible, told Wilkerson to cut the arm off, which he did at one blow cf his ax, and the two conly plodded home ward to astonish the old folks. Tbe arm healed "by tbe first intention," and ia fast getting well. This is the strangest case of amputation we ever heard of, aod so successful as to deserve a place in the annals of surgery. The parties live ahout fifteen miles from town. Little Roek Gazette. F.d.ral Court Indictments for Tr.asoa.

In the inves tigation held yesterday in the case of D Kennedy, whose partner Powers is ia custody on the charge of producing his death, it was shown that Powers was tir ing under an assumed name, and that tbe greater portion of the property olaimed by him was in Kennedy's name. The jury rendered a verdict to the effeot that whisky applied to the deceased by Pow era. with irandu lent intent, nad cauiso his death. A Caracas (Venezuela) letter states that Mr. Talmadge, the American Com misaioner in the Convention for the set tlement of American claims, has been accused of fraud, and tbat the Govern ment announced immediately demand for tbe abrogation of the treaty. Mr. Talmadge is fully able to disprove any imputation against him, and the whole trouble ia said to have been cansed by a wish to avoid paying the heavy install' ment already adjudged the United States. Neill McGowan, one of the seamen on a strike, while in a dispute yesterday with one McCarthy, a sailor boarding house runner, was knocked down and shot by the latter. McCarthy was ar rested. The Tribune says that on last Octo ber, one George Williamson hired a basement, 48 Canal street, for the os tensible purpose of opening a trunk store. He cut the floor into the shop above, and stole fifty-six hundred dollars worth of millinery goods, and was arrested with the plunder in his possession as he was attempting to cast it away, and commit ted to prison without bail.

Several months ago, someone, bent on peculiar mi.aion, the objeet of which remains abronded in mystery to tbe present time, dug a hole in tbe pavement running in front of Gen. Pike's resi- ence, immediately nnder some roae boshes that overhang the walk, and took from the place a box, judging from the ze of tbe bole to be about two leet quare. various surmises were sug- gested as to the cense. Some advanced be idea that money had been buried tbere during the war, and the owaer had retnrned for it; others, that it was stolen valuables, buried for safe keeping at tbe time of the robtary, and tbe thief al not thought it safe to remove tbem before. This theory seemed to be gene rally accepted as tbe most plausible, but tbe matter was finally dropped aod wthing more thought cf it, until a few days ago, during a night similar to the rat, another excavation was discovered tbi. time inside the fence and aboat 6fty yarda ar uth of where tbe first was made anamination of tbe place showed that a box similar to tbe first had beta removed; but no one, as in the first i a- a nee. seemed to be able to give a cor rect solution of tbe affair.
