We give our readers the identical word spoken by Governor Senter et Nashville, a few days since, in reply to W. B. Stokes, taken from the Nashville Banner of Jane Gih. The speech is worthy of the careful consideration of all who feel a deep in terest in the iroportannt changes bow going on in onr State. Will the Conservative masses accept Mr. Senter upon the platform of univer sal suffrage, which means enfranchise ment of white men who participated and sympathized with the rebellion T The only question for our consideration is now whether we could do better than receive the Gavernor upon his own pub lic declarations. If, as the LsDOsa has declared before, Mr. Senler will favor the enfranchisement of bur friends, then he deserves the support of all liberal and magnanimous men in the State. The Conservatives should forget the Radical, and vote for freeing sixty thousand property-holders and respectable men who live within the bordera ot this much-oppressed Commonwealth. If our antagonists offer ns a liberal and honorable compromise npon the differences that have divided us asunder, then we shall act the part of sensible men aod agree to such without a moment's hesitation. Our lives, to some degree, are made up of compromises, that each individual in society may enjoy a reason- able share of the benefits of government The prty that is most liberal and pro gressive (for they both go hand in haad) shall, at all limes, receive our support and encouragement. Then, let the down trodden of the State rally to the standard raised by 8 jvernor Senfr, who promises to remove our shackles, and place the State again on the high way to prosperity and happiness. Kpreb of O.vernar Renter. As General Stokes was abont to take his seat, Governor Senter advanced to the rostrum and shaking hit competitor by the hand, remarked : " I am with you, William, till toe first Thursday in August." Loud cheers or Senler from the hall and answering cheers for Steles from the galleries Governor Seuter plunged immediately into the. subject matter in hand in reply to General Stokes. His competitor had said that h was " in the race and can't ret out." Very well, my fellow-citizens, I have come to help him out. He ap peared, he said, before his fellow citizens, and fellow-Republicans, under the most embarrassing circumstances. He came to measure lances not with one who had .been lie political or personal foe, bat to measure lances with a brother Republi canalthough he did happen to be heralded bald eagle of the mountains. As to the unfortunate differences in the Republican Convention, resulting in their opposition as candidates, he him eelf had had no hand in it. Just here the colored men and women in the gal leries, who had commenced leaving in rquads when Stokes ceased speaking, made a movement en tnaste te leave the hall a great many risiDg to their feel Addressing himself earnestly to these, ihe speaker said, I aak these men to stay aod bear me, it not for myself, for the cause I represent, and as they valued their own welfare and the interests of their race aBd their wives and children. Let not your passions or your prejudices ,r-rrY tod awev from fair argument and reason, bnt stay and listen and judge, if yoa have judgments as to wbo is ngm and who stands by the truth. Just here Stokes essayed to interpose in the speak er's behalf to ask the negroes to stay, but the sneaker moved him back, saving, " let tbem alone and let me talk, I will get them to listen before I get through with this canvass." He had never before, he continued, ad dressed so large an audience of his fel-low-citizna never so many of the colored freemen of the State in one as sembly. He asked tbem to listen to him patiently for the cause he represented, if not for himself. Be patient and listen. I don't ask you to vote for m if you can't indorse) my sentiments, bnt stsy and atudv vour own interests. A few more straggled off, and some noise and haUuib was kept up in the galleries and rotunda oatstde, with cheering and beating of drams, but the majority o( the colored people remained. The speaker, as soon as he could stake his voice heard above the din, continued. We had met in convention, but that con vention had adjourned in disorder, with out a nomination As it is we are both aow fairly in the field, aod come weal, come woe, William B Stokes, I am wit yon tn the dote. You claim to start with forty thousand colored men. If I do not make more ont of that forty thou sand than you do, I'll agree to abandon the canvass The last colored slave in the State of Tennessee was sold by the man who makes this boast, let him deny it if he can. That slave the last offered for sale in Tennessee waa brought by my competitor to Ilayne'i neero .sale house ia this city in lUCl. He sys he helped to have me pardoned and my di.aUlitu'S removed. But W. B Rmkes pardoned himself and removed his own disabilities hy his iron clad oath.

A mprirana claiming a malt ahara nf thoan InaveB and fishPS? He challenged them to find in the Legis lative or Congressional record of his competitor to find the first bill he had inUAnnad np halcr! to CSrrV through for the real benefit of the people. He taunts me with having electors, vten, r ksin it if i ha friends of mvself and r o.ii.a r anihii tiaalic enough to sneak and talk in behalf of that cause. Yet I want to know if he has not bis elec tors, as he styles them, as well? I wish to know if he, the bald eagle of the moun tains, did not meet in miameni con clave with the grizzly wolf m uamiiiuo i. .Mirniii tin Hpatrnctian T He would IU feWWBO. J just put him on his oath aod answer yea or nay, if he dared. He states that he knows I have been loyal, ne cauiu uoi have stated to the contrary, and he knows it. When he say I voted with the rebel Legislature, I would remind him that if I veted for an appropriation to give ki.-lroia tn rt.Ki.li tn shelter them from .u nf winter, trier were the sons ofUnienmen he (Stokes) had induced to enter the rebel service. ij ineuu Stokes would make it appear that ne was . hnM vet in the thickest of the fight he was generally found falling back to hunt up stragglers, lie appeal. i colored men on the ground that he had a colored regiment under his command. Did any of you ever hear of bis leading a colored regiment in action ? One of his chief nenchmen in the convention, Rod- :w n.nifnm Rntler. the red fox. was at one time in favor of engrafting upon the constitution a measure to tne eneci mat no roan should vote or testify in court .1. hait nearn hlood in his veins. His competitor in one of his canvasses for Congress with J. tt uooa cnaracien ieu the negro as having cracks in his heels wide enough to hide a bolt of calico. ' In that treacherous conclave there was nothing said against Senler personally, bnt the Republican Banner, by instinot, seemed to learn, and to related, that Stokes wss at the bottom of the con spiracy. Cate was put forward to deny h AiA in the Banner, but Stokes, meanwhile, bad written to Sharp acknowledging his complicity in enecw He would ieao this little question of with iha KM endla of the moun tains and the grizzly wolf of Hamilton. He says be relused to cast tne vote tor Lincoln, as the elector, because he was a colonel in the Federal army, yet he had no scruples on the score of having written the Duncan letter. His "self-respect" did not prevent the author of that letter from an cath, with that offense still un pardoned. I would just ask him testate here and now whether be is a candidate for Governor or for Senator sf th Jnited Stalest Stokes Do yon want to know t Senter I do. . Stores I expect to take a lick at both of 'em. Tke .neater reanmed tilth an anecdote to the effect that his competitor's greed iness holding one office and seeking tarn more reminded him of the fellow who went out hunting, but bad but one load in bis gun. lie saw a turkey in tne top of a tree and a deer at the roots, and in trving to hit both with the load be missed both. Mr. Stokes came into the convention surrounded and supported by men who op. hi. nar.nnal enemies, including the red fox Roderick Random, the grizzly woll ot Hamilton, and Hamilton tne sngar-lofgs. But I ask him to put his finger on the supporter of my came in th.it convention, who had not (ought longer and better for the Union than he had ever done. Before he was done with him in ilii n.nvaRs. ha would skin him cleaner than the quarler-horse Ariel, he loved to boast about, ana wonia snow lim-iefore it was over tbat this was no uarter-race business now. Whether he lid or not. I did cast the electoral vote for Grant, and I have never beard it questioned by the great Republican p.r tr of the nation. He claims to have secured my pardon. I have heard that claim so otten that I scarcely Know now many disinterested friends I snail nave tn oat iln.n nn mv knees to. to thank for relieving me, who first relieved them selves of disabilities by tbeir own oaths. In his striclures upon the financial mis management of the State, his competitor had made the direct assault upon every member of the Republican Legislatures. I stand here upon the platform of inter nal improvements, the safety of the pub lic credit, and publia spfcools for white and black. My competitor, it seems, is not op posed to this school law, bat to the superintendents inder the law, Let him point ont a better system. He talks about ihe exhorbitaat salaries men r' reived when ha drew f 12,000 from the Treasury for only thirty days' service more than I ever drew in a life-time. He rts out in this, canva.s on a salary of S'jOOO to begin with. I am not here to defend the wrongs perpetrated in the school system, but to protect those who may be unjustly accused. He makes the charge that certain men are dishonest under the present system. Thsq why does he not, in bis Congressional wis dom, present a better system for us T He has been thirty years in the business of lairlalatinn Ki i. ahta in invent mnrh that I have done, but what good deed of his own does he mention? The only reseon that I can see why we should take bim out ot congress to mate Dim uov ernor is, became be is no use to us there. 1 am nnt in lha hahit tif m.Lintf car long speeches, but I usually endeavor to speak la tne point. 1 snouit nice any one present, Conservative or Rdic.l, to say if he can tell wrwre General Stokes Stands on the franchise, according to the pp.vu be bss just concluded, w ill any Wartial Lara tall ma if ka frnnaf.V Colored Citi?.,' jje stands by the black man." He does, you say. Now wilt any Con servative tell me where Mr. Stokes standi a on mis question r A Voice" He's on both sidfS." plow, continued the speaker. I wish him to stand square and fair, f A voice Kinds.1 Hrnwa. nnlnran1 fla'a iaaa waitin', and wants yon to come on) hr.L You've got the stand." Laughter The speaker, addressing himself to Randal Brown, said, I know where you s'aod, Randal for univer.il suffrage. The SDsker continued. This question of the franchls, aiy fellow-citizens, white and tj!as!jt is the mom important question that we, a. candi dates, have ever bad presented tn us in any ol pat previous cauvasses. it Question cf more vital interest to lb people than any now under consideration 1 voice "Tell us where you stand." Just be steady. and patient. General Stokes declares that the franchise ques tion and removal of disabilities must be attended to by the nett Legislature. If the ne,. t Legislature must do it, why not do it now. As we stand in Tennessee to day, we are alone in the nation. There ia not a leading Republican paper, nor a Renubliran of orominsnoa and wisdom, at the North, in favor of keeping the people disfranchised. We cannot breast the ocean wave of the popular sentiment of the nation or resist inevitable truths. I will go this far. If elected Governor of Tennessee, next August, as f cer tainlv emect to be. I shall recommend to the State Legislature the removal of the political disabilities of every citizen who pays taxes. . .. There's no eauivocation in that posi tion. There's no two aides to that propo sition, When vou come, (leneral Stokes, to deal honestly and candidly with hon est and candid people, there need be no turning and twisting tor the start as in a a aarter race. 1 his is no quarter race, eneral S'nkes, but a full mile round and reneat. You must come out lair and sauare come out honest, and no efforts to fool honest men with mere quibble and equivocation. Mr. Stokes says he never sought this oflice, I have no disposition to subject him to cross-examination, but will he now resign bia place in congress r no an swer ? Then silence eives consent. Mr. Stokes had referred to the militia being in the Stale at elections. He knew as well as any man why. He (Senter) had disbanded tbem as fast as was proper, in order to relieve the State of the ex pense, and they were nearly all dis banded. Lawless men would not misun derstand this. If elected Governor, and while in that office, he would protect every man, and especially the more help less, from all violence whatever, if he had to call out every able-bodied man in the State. Mr. Stokes bad endeavored to make much capital against him about railroad receivers, who were drawing several salaries when they were only en titled to one. Stokes had not dared to make the charge direct, but by inuendo it was implied. He denied flttiv that any such stateof things existed. It one man was receiver for two roads he. only drew a half salary frem each, makiag only one salary in all. Senter then reverted to the fact, which he said had be fore slipped his memory, that it was the bogus Huuter delegation from Mem phis which had broken up the convention and prevented an organizi tion, and their conduct bad since been condemned by the Republicans of Shelby connty, by -a majority of six hundred. Senter then adverted to the schebl fund and to letters published in a certain paper (which a'terward was understood to be the Press and Timet), containing hints and intimations, which the writer had not the manhood to come ont and make open charges, that he was in some sense reiDonsible for the loss of the money. Ha was proceeding in his de nunciations of this course when Colonel Grisham, the editor of that paper, who was titling lost under senter on tne steps of the stand, rose hurriedly and exoited. ly, said something which we did not hear and sat down. Senter proceeded, not re garding the interruption; when Grisham rose again and denied (as we understood him) that Senter'a name had been men tioned in tbat connection, ad an alter cation of words followed, during which Grisham resumed, hit seat a.nd Senter bis speech, lie said no Liaise could ati tach to bim for that transaction. No cent had ever reached him in aDy shape, bit garment! were olear of tbat sin, and no Q would dare charge him with it. Every one knew be bad voted against giving Rutter charge of the money. He wanted it put in three bankt one in Nashville, onp in Memphis and one (0 KnnzvUle. so that the tame could hav been properly secured and no loss occur. Men who mention the subject should lo cate the responsibility where it properly belongs. He could mention names of men against whom grave suspicions were entertained, who were now Stokes' hench men and right band supporters. Mr. Senter rapidly passed from point to point, alluding tq hit arrest by the Confederate authorities on bis return from Memphis -his confinement ia prison for eight months. While describing this treatment a man in the crowd inter rupted, asking, " and are you now in favor of giving the right to vote to these men ?" Senter answered in the affirma tive, but distinctly stated that where men were committing offenses against per sons and properly and liberty, whioh rendered tbem infamous, of course they could not be entitled to it, and no good man would be in favor of conferring socb rights upon them. He spoke in glowing terms of what the State bad to expect from internal improvements, such ae a net work of railroads wb'cq should bind the State together like chains of steel-i- the people become prosperous and happy. We bad comparatively few manufacto riesought to have a great many. He hoped to see tne day nan ueresuouid be a hum of industry from one end of the Slate to the other. He concluded briifly by assuring the people that if elected he would administer the Govern ment fairly, dividing jastics equally between man and man at nearly as was in bit poer, without fear, favor or par- uaiiir. Mr. Senter wat frequently interrupted by the yelling of the negroes for Stokes, sometimes silencing bim for a moment or two, but he bore it all with patience, never once losing bis self-posseaaion and good bum or, btokii ions. At the close of Senter's remarks, Stokes m.uoled Ihe stand to reply, tie said be had planted himself on the broad plat form of the National party, the party which had laved the country. He put the question to Senter if he wat in fayor ot universal sunrage 7 Senter renlied tbat be was- Then, remarked Stokes, if for nothing else, the rebels are much under obliga tions tn me for getting this much out of yon. Now, i will tell yoo tbat there is scarcely a member ol the ben ate or House who stands there and recommends universal suffrage. They are ia favor of removing the disabilities ef suck at have been peaceable. There it where I Z,n and if I am defeated, it will be under the fig ol tbe Union aod the Republican party. I will never go for putting the ballot into the Lan j$ of mo till they cease per petrating cutrage and murder. Senler asks me if I will resign my position in Congress? 1 answer him no. If I am eleeud etpect to he sworn in right here, but if 1 am not I expeot to go back to Wanliington and serve my country there. Senter is only acting as Governor. will ak bim if be will resign his posi tion ? I have a right to be elected, and if the people shall elect me to the Senate of the United States I will take the place. Ue had been asked the question before and during the convention, if in case they would s'and bark and allow him to be nominated, he would remain in tbe back ground and allow Senter 10 go to the Senate. To ibis he had replied that be could not trade borrowed horse.. While at Wa.hmg'on be wrote to have the Banntr sent to him. k'e didn't ex actly like tbe politics of tbe paper, but couldu't get along without it; there wat goo. I reading mutter in it, and it kept bim posted. 1 "Wrote to tbe Banner men that they might, if they chose, keep tbe Duncan letter standing at tbe bead their columns. Senter sayt be was the rebel Legislature. He went to Mem phis; afterward went home, and was ar rested and imprisoned. Kut what did b do when ha was let out? Was he man enough to fight them? No I .He just gave a bond for bis lulure good behavior Now, I'll tell you how I got out of tbe Duncan letter shouldered a musket and fought for three years in tbe Union army, Here he was asked the Question if be had ever voted to remove tbe disabilities of any rebols. He responded that he had voted to remove tbe disabilities from hundreds and thousands, and would do so again. He wanted it understood that he should not abuse any man. Hit oppo nent could not drive him into any tuob thing, Tbe speaker now referred to the pub lished correspondence ot bis accep tance of tbe nomination for the Gov ernorship. He had been informed by men ia whom be placed reliance, that there were in the convention two hundred and thirty-three delegates, and sixty-four counties for bim. lie accepted. SEKTII BKSPONDS. , Stokes having concluded hit remarks, Senter again mounted the stand. The negro band struck ud and marched out of the hall followed by all the negroes in the galleries and most of those in the body of tbe house. When silence had been restored Senter proceeded to make a few remarks. He said when a man wat announced to make a speech it wat expected tbat be would be surrounded by hit friends aod supporter!. This wat the case with bis opponent, but Nashville was not the State of Tennessee. Stokes did not deny one charge that I made in my remarks. He aays he did run a quarter-horse, that he did tell tbe last negro, with manacles on his hands. I wish to aak General Stokes a few ques tions: How did he vote on the resolution tendering a vote of thanks to Anderson, of Fort Sumpter fame? How did you vote, Mr. Stokes, on the question of men and money to fight the rebels? Think of these questions and be ready to answer them when we meet again. I want to know how Stokes standi on the suffrage question. Where will be draw tbe line? Will he enfranchise all tbe educated ? Will he have those men ho acted only at they were taught? What sort of a distinction doet be pro Dose ? Where will be commence this gradual enfranchising business ? Senter -now put the question straight to Stokes whether he .was in favor of uni versal suffrage. Stokes said he was not on the stool to be catechised. Senter announced before retiring that Stokes nd himself had agreed to meet at Phil- BY TELEGRAPH. LATEST TO NOOS TO-DAY. BROWNSVILLE. Knpreine Conrt at Brownsville. Special to the Public Lidoii.

The Uerallt special (London, June 8th) announce ment of the predetermination of the ma- ority of the House of Lords to reject the Irish church bill caused intense excite ment, and threaten to precipitate an eventually irrooonoilable conflict be tween the Lords and the Commont. It it rumored in tome quarteri that the announcement to feel tbe pubho pulso, and learn how far the House of Lords dare go. It is the general impression tbat tbe bill win qe tnrewn nut on tbe second reading, The Standard to-day agitates the peril of tbe proposed action as too obvious to be ignored, even by the least thoughtful or conscientious of the hereditary legis lators, bot sayt tbat tbe Lordt have resolved, in compliance with the urgent demands of thousands in ivery part of the country, to risk all in tbe contest with the impious minister and an overbearing majority in the Commons, fhonld they be crushed, iq tke, struggle not only will the church and the constitution fall with tbem, hut the liberties of England will be sacrificed to tba ascendancy of tbe Democratic principle, which is the most dangerous foe to persona' political freedom, Tb; Star, In threatening language, sayt the Irish Church must not cumber the ground after December, and that tbe least taid on tbat aubject will be pro claimed from Ihe house-tops. Tbe House of Lords is not a more logical, desirable or inexcusable institution than tbe Irish church and the fever beat tbat will follow the rejection of the bill. A hate will be generated such as has not been teen tince the people of Birmingham threat ened to march on London in tbe name of reform, and cries will be heard calling for the downfall of an absolute Chamber that no longer disguises its anarchism of existence by hereditary de scent. Tbe Timet says tbat on the eve of the coming crisis nothiog since the throes which preceded the passage of the Reform bill can be compared to the consequences which will attend the threatened conduct if lb people, and the result of ihe strag gle is not at all doubtful. If the Lords had succeeded at first they would now be compelled to undergo a second tender of the meaaurss already rejected. The result of this action will touch all interests, and jeopardize not only themselves and their privilegos, but also tbe peace of tbe great towns and the maintenance of law and order throughout the country. Outside of the Commons and the pub lic press, tLe people generally talk in a revolutionary manner.
