HIE IRREVOCABLE FACT." The Avalanche of this Morning bertng a leading article with the piint blank as sertion tbar. " oero suffrage is a fixed, irrevocable fuel," and winds op by sav ing: " There i no use discussion this ques tion now, when il can be submitted to a direct vote and decided by the people Innrrt a sal V AO. " Tbis is the first lime we ey heard of submitting an " imvocable thing to the people, and tbe clearest inference is that the Avalanche don't think tezro suffrage is so very irrevocable, after all. Tbe proposition for a truce, on tb eve of a decisive contest, after callous ef ink have been poured cnt by the Avalanche to whitewash the nigger and -moggie him through the world as a citin and voter, ehows'a heal by lettinj down. If negro e-ffVage i so fixed that it cannot be on doue, what's Jhe use of four columns of editorial per day on the subject, and each "to be continued, in our next" Oar astute colemporary gives a great many rtajons fur favowg negro enffraff, but eratls General Jackson this time. One reason offered is that the Radical majori'jr is likely to remain in power for years, and forcr it oo tbe country. There ie where tbe "irrevocable" comes in again. If the Democrats were io power, and likely to remiin for several years tc come, then, according to this reason ing, it might he all right .td.restrain Cuffey from the ballot-box. Negro suffrage is a war measure, fas'-ened upon us by partisans who needed the negro vote. There was a time, hot recently, wbn one hundred thousand Tennessee white mn were politically band-cuffed, and tVre was no prospect of relief for many v-vs. In tbis dire exiremiiy a few, who grew faint from long waiting, proposed that if the negro would take off cor kicd-soffi, be should remain forevirr ad-sturbed in tbe exercise of all political privileges which he gained by tbe war. This was the leaser of two great evils. The negro listened, nodded and said it was all right He accepted every bribe, every drink, every free lunch that was offered, thnn straightway went chuckling to the Loyal League rooms and boasted of what he had done When voting time came he violated all pledges, and the implied contract was broken. Tbe guarantee offered the negro was not a corcetsion that he had any right to vote, but it was the price some were willing to givi for freedom and citizenship. It . has been aEserted so often that Rf'alK nnnnlv lina Kppn committed to the 4ocfrne of negro equality that we desire to see tbe question settled by tbe people themselves. . Lst them be heard fur Once, instead of solf-constitnted pre lies, and let the degrading assertion be hurled back in the face of its sn'hors, and our honest fame vindicated. We nrge every citizen to go to tbe ward meetings to night, and to act with a view to tbe grave issues at s-uke. "A PatmisssT Citizsh," who signs -himself " C," in tbe morning Universal Negro Suffrage organ, cordially endorses sumethirg that paper said some forty days ago, mere or leas. Belays "run ning party into everything ruined the RiJicals, and if practiced by Conserva tives will lot for pi all we have gained." Tbis gentleman must have little faith in tbe intvgriiy cf tbe psr'y and still lets in Democratic principles. We take it for granted withont argimeot that the sound political crf-a which saved u, aid was our guide to a glorious triumph will do to Bland by through all visclaei tades. O Ler parties may have one set of principles in the boar of victory and .another f.r defeat, bat tbe vital priori pit,! ot Democracy, like eternal truth acd justice, never change. If we were right when ia hopltss mioosi'y, accession to p-wrr cp'j affords us an opporiofity to ratify tie course of a lifetime and make a public anJ more solemn confes sion of faith.

Presiding in the most important Chan cery Court io tbe State, with a crowded docket, full of esses, presenting new and vexed questions, growing out ot circumstances incident to tbe late war, far tbe decision of which he wsi often withtut precedent in history or adjudged oaa's to guide him, bis position was both Iryiirg and responsible; and if sometimes the soundness of bis Ingal conclusions was questioned by the bar, yet it was not to the diepsragemeot of bis legal attain ment', nor did' tbe taint of suspicion attach to tbe judicial integrity which guided bim to, or to tbe eonscientiooi convictions which accompanied these conclusions. Io tbe vindications of his integri'y and conscientiousness, as we 1 as cf his ability and legal attainment', sra cbee'fully pronounce Judge Smith's course as Chaouollor to l)Te been emi nently satisfactory, aod we submit as tbe senna ot this meeting as follows: Firs'. Be it resolved. That we take pleasure io expressing to Judge Smith tbe assurance ot cur high rrgird, and in bearicg testimony to tbe soiform pa tience, courtesy, integrity and ability that have characterised him as a judicial tfficer, and extend to him a corda wel come to tbe Rtr as a brother lawyer, aVcood.
