Br virtue of hit office as Speaker of the Senate, Mr. Senter becomes Governor of the Slate vice Brownlow resigned.. That happy result takes place on the 25th of this month, which is next Tuesday, to the gratification of a larne portion of the people pf onr State. We r'joice that we are free from the control of the devil s counterpart, and feel that we can not be worsted, and perhaps cur condition may be somewhat bettered by the change. Brownlow, since the reins of government wag placed in his hands by force of the bayonet, has never failed, when an op portunity presented itself, to persecute the defenseless people of his State and to wreak his vengeance upon oar dis armed cemmunity. His last crowning act of infamy was to place nine counties of the State under martial law. And that, too.'in spite of the protestations of the people of those counties, and tne assurances of their Representatives that law and order prevailed throughout these districts of the State. Why it is that the old palsied wretch should delight in scenes of blood and confusion, is something surprising to us, unless it is to cover up and divert atten tion from the villainies of himself and party. That men have been taken from jail and executed, not in accordance with the prescribed rnles of the law, we .do not deny. But in every instance they have stood charged with the highest crime known to the Jaw, and in no instance was there a shadow of doubt as to their guilt. These are facts well known to Governor Brownlow and to every one throughout the country. Then the Governor with the constituted authoriiies are arraying themselves on the side of thieves and assassins for it is wiih these alone that the Ka-Klux bave had to deal. If- the law is inade quate at all times to visit punishment upon the guiliy and protect the weak and innocent, no man or set of men should be held to account for ridding the com munity of the thieves, aod protecting virtue and life from the hand of the as sassio. What Govern.r Senter will do when he becomes ruler, is yet to be seen, and, we nave no eviaenee ot won bis future policy may be, save that his friends claim for him' a consistent and mild record- We hope that he may at or.C4 take hold of the duties of his po sition and bave the law executed not in the interest of his friends and partisans alone, but for rebels and radicals both who should stand equal before the law at all times. Brownlow himself has never been pbys cally capacitated to discharge the duties as Governor of the State aside from his mental derangement, which is a hard question, judging from bis line of pol icy pursued. He has been in Knox ville nursing bit wrath to keep it warm, while Bojiig'oo and John Brownlow have been doing the duties, incident to the office. We are informed that Gov ernor Senter is of sound body, aod hope that bis mind may be capable of ' mat. aging our affairs more satisfactorily than did the old cut-going imbecile who carries not the blessing) of his people with him, but their exercrations and de testations. Re-Enacll. The Louisville Courier Journal says truly that the moral of the late congres sional disturbance nag written many hundreds of years sgo, and remains visi ble over a hundred volumes of Roman, Grecian, Florentine, German, English and French legislative history. It is brief and simple. The two Houses of Congress engage in a scheme to chop cf the powers of the Executive. They suc ceed of course. Then tbey turn to the Supreme Court, which they reduce to a standing committee. Having thns practically destroyed the two co-ordinate branches of the government, the magistracy and the judiciary, and lodged the entire authority of tbe State in themselves, ihej quarrel with one an other. Tbe House makes an issue with the Senate, and, as the lower body out -numbers the higher, it will have n$ trouble in carrying iis point whenever it sees fit to push i's issue to a direct cornet. This is the 6 rat step to an arcby which is Ins vestibule ut mon archy, and that is the direction of Rad icalism. - TaaTpiareat tifllet. A Courier-Journal special says: Tbe fig.b.1 for tbe repeal of the civil tenure law commenced io tbe Senate to-day in dead earnest, mud (he discussioo, headed ty CoDalicg, was against the repeal. Of course co vote was reached. A careful calculation shows that, with the entire Democratio rote, the friends of General Grant can barely secure a vote for tbe House bill erasing tbe odious measure frnm the atninta nooks. The contest is more bitter and close than either side had imagined. . The carpet-bag Senators have taken a very decided stand against tbe repeal, which fact is not likely to in sure them many favors with Grant. TBI Naeville Banner says: Singu larly enough the Senate and House can not agree on the proposed constitutional amendment The House refused to con' cur in the Senate amendment, and the Senate refused to recede from theirs, and now the Judiciary Committee has deter mined to strike out that portion of the Senate's amendment -which allows the negro to hold office, and ask, tbe House to pass it in that form. Southern Sen ators have avowed the purpose to defeat any amendment which does not permit the negro to hold office as well as vote, and tKere is a faint hope tbat it will fail altogether. The New Orleans Crescent says: The present Congress has spent fourteen hundred dollars for combs and soap, which shows that, at least, tbey are aware of their need for those articles. There is no danger that the Royal street concern will incnr any such expense. Combs and soap would be tupeiflaoos articles among onr legislators, a large proportion of whom couldn't use a comb. if they would, aod wouldn t use soap if they could. Tennessee Legislature.

If it is extreme'y long, tbe wearerls supposed tobe very desirons of getting spliced at once; if only mode rately long, it shows that only good of fers will be entertained; aa extremely short, meagre ringlet indicates that tbe wearer is very particular as to whom she j accepts.
