In pursuance of a resolution adopted by the

MOB VIOLENCE IJf TE5MXSEK.
The dastardly murder of a colored
echool-mistress in Trousdale county,
and the troubles in Gibson county, cul
minating in the lynching of six, and
perhaps sixteen riotous negro ring
leaders, call for serious consideration
It U true that the Civil Rights ques
tion was an active element in the coun
ty elections.. But these elections were
held fully three weeks ago. ' The
whites simply appealed to the ballot
box, and their triumph was complete.
The joy over that triumph was more
boisterous in Republican East Ten
nessee than in any other section of
the State. The white man had car
ried Lis point in a white man's
way, and that was the end of it. In
elections marked with more quiet and
order than generally prevail in any
Northern State, the people of Tennessee
had, in a legitimate manner, prevented
their county offices from falling into
the Lands of negrots or of whites who
are wont to pander to negro prejudices
and ignorance, inflaming their passions
with, misrepresentations and lies. Yet
these three weeks Lave been marked
with riots and bloodshed. - Who was
dissatisfied and embittered at the re
sults of August 6, that they should
raiso trouble? Certainly not the whites.
" iiriDcziIed to the freeman's
tribucal and won tnelr case.'
The idea of whites inciting a war
againut blacks in Tennessee, when we
are three to one, and enjoy the bonie
rule of the majority, is absurd. It is
too suicidal for belief. In States fur
ther South, where negro rulers are con
fiscating all property, as in South Caro
lina, or where the voice of the people
is silenced as the ballot-box with Gat
lin guns, as in Louisiana, such a condi
tion of affairs is at least supposable.
Not so in Kentucky, Tennessee, or any
other State where the whites outnum
ber the blacks aDd are allowed free
government. In all these States every
interest of our race is wrapped
np in law and order, peace between the
races, and the keeping down of all dis
We know this does not suit the
"loyal" theory about the South, by
which Radicalism has prolonged its
power several years beyond its time.
The ready pens with which Republican
organs gloat over a Somerville affair,
in which not a negro was killed, while
they inioretheblo-nly resistance to law
oGcera and Federal marshals in Penn
sylvania and Ohio, show that these dis
turbances are used, if not originated,
for a political purpose. A Southern
journalist cannot better help this new
Radical crusade than by representing
our opposition to the Civil Rights bill
as a war of races. It is notoriously no
such thing. We appeal to ballots, not
bullets. We propose to meet and
defeat it in the foi um of reason. A
Southern editor who so far misunder
stands his people as to place them
in the light of appealing to arms when
they have a clear majority at the polls,
will do more mischief than a horde of
Lireling postoffice organs, who are paid
for their dirty work. One uemy in
the citadel is more dangerous than a
Let the Southern press then, with
out cringing, face the facts and tell our
Northern brethren the whole truth. In
every alarm that Las been sounded
during the three weeks since our elec
tions, striking horrible dismay into
scattered homes, and appalling white
fathers, mothers and children the
negroes have begun the disturbance.
The solitary murder of a young negro
woman in Trousdale county offers no
exception, because there was no dis
turbance there on either side, and it
was an isolated instance of horrible
crime, like the Nathan "mystery" or
the Walworth "tragedy." Because
the victim was a colored school teacher
the people of Trousdale will exert
themselves the more, 6eouring bill and
wood and dale, to bring the fiends to
justice. It was a dastardly, damnable
deed, without palliation or redemption
Trousdale is one of the most intelligent
and law-abiding communities in the
State. Even in the throes of emanci
pation the two races got along there
better than in any other section we
know of. The negroes have always
been well-behaved, and the whites, on
whom this outrage reflects, will, wc feel
assured, spare no pains and leave no
stone unturned to bring to the halter
the hellions who murdered Julia Hay
den. The troubles in Gibson county have
been brewing for sevcil days. The
negroes are represented as attempting
murder, wholesale incendiarism and
pillage; so the exasperation of the
whites was not unnatural. It was no
question of Civil Rights, but of life
and property. Yet, when the ring
leaders were lodged in jail, the law
should Lave taken its course. We ut
terly condemn and abhor lynch law in
all such cases. It cannot possibly be
excused when its victims are already
under the jurisdiction of the courts.
There can be no denunciation too strong
tojeharacterize the horrible injustice of
inflicting capital punishment without
judge, jury, witness or benefit
of clergy. This deed is a foul blot on
the name of Tennessee, and its perpe
trators should be promptly dealt with
in a manner that will vindicate a law
abiding people. Lynching i9 sometimes
excused on the plea of the law's delay.
But lynching is not the remedy. Our
laws and our courts are in our own
hands. Our duty, as reasoning beings,
valuing our own lives, is to reform the
Courts and make them do their duty,
instead of resorting to the primitive
and hazardous tribunal of Judge
Lynch. It is a maxim that it were
better for nine criminals to escape than
one innocent man be punished. Lynching
is a foul violation of this maxim of
justice. The wholesale slaughter in
Gibson county may have punished a
few of the guilty, but it has also punished
thousands in impairing the good name
of the community, in retarding their
material progress and in unsettling
society, which cannot be made to stand
on any basis except that of law and
order. No punishment can be tod se
vere for the reckless desperadoes who
would wrench prisoners from the Lands
of justice and shoot them by the dozca.
Let them also have the justice tor wnicn
they seem to thirst.

Under a recent decision of Attor
ney-General Williams, 3,106,784 acres
of public land, granted to seven 1 rail
road companies, revert to the govern

Attorney-General reverses the ruhngs
that formerly prevailed in the land
office, to the effect that land once
granted to railroad companies could
not revert to tLe government except by
some special legislation on the part of
Congress. TLe lands referred to lie in
Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Texas
and Michigan. They will now be open
to settlement, subject to the usual con
ditions of the General Land Office.
We reproduce in this morning's
Union and American a candid state
cicnt touching the responsibility of the
negroes for the present critical relations
of the white and black races in tha
South, copied from the Chicago Trilutie,
the leading organ of the Republican
party in the Northwest. It establishes
so thoroughly the fact that the negroes
inaugurated the so-called war of races,
as to leave no sane man excuse for hold
ing the whites to accountability for thLi
deplorable state of affairs.
J HE IETEKIOK PI KPOiSI.S OF CIT
It is not a Southern journal, nor yet-
a Democratic journal, but the Xete
York Sun edited by one who Las held
Ligh office in the Republican party and
claims still to be a Republican that
hints boldly at the destruction of fcnate
schools in the South as one of the main
objects with those who support the
Civil Rights bill. The Sun recalls the
well-known fact that about two years
ago, Mr. Hoar of Massachusetts, tha
same to whom the dying Sumner left
his legacy of Civil Rights, introduced
in Congress a bill providing that the
Federal Government should be empow
ered to tale charge of the educational
interests of all States which should fail
to maintain an efficient system of pub
lic instruction. The bill likewise pro
vided that, under t'ae operation of the
proposed law, taxes should be collected
in the derelict States and applied to
the support of schools which Bhould
be entirely under the control and
supervision of agents appointed
in Washington- If public schools
in the South are discontinued on ac
count of Civil Rights, Hoar's measure
would at once be revived, passed, and
put into execution, perhaps with new
features added of a still more oppres
sive character. The Sun might have
also cited the Sixteenth Amendment
offered by Senator Stewart as late as
May 2o, 1874, and now in the charge
of the Judiciary Committee. This
amendment was sprung in the very
heat of the Civil Rights discussion, to
silence the argument that the public
schools would be destroyed. It pro
poses to vest Congress with the power
to establish whatever school system it
may please, at the State's expense, in
any State that fails to maintain a pub
lic system. To either mode of "sup
plementary" meddling the following
remarks of the Xew York Sun apply
with equal force:
To give an unscrupulous Adminis
tration the appointment of all the pub
lic school teachers and officials in all
the Southern States; the direction and
management of all the public schools;
the power to tax the whites for the
support of schools which would bene
fit the blacks only, and the control of
all the funds raised for that purpose,
would be to put an engine of enormous
political power into the hands of the
authorities in Washington. The im
mense patronage, the facilities for a
profitable application of the rules of
Addition, Division, and Silence, and
the influence w hich would be wielded
over tue colored population by
such an army of partisan emissaries
as the teachers would doubtless
be ali these things would aid to make
up a fearful power to be exercised
against the whites, and for the cost of
which they almost exclusively would te
obliged to supply the funds. Worst of
all, teacher employed under such cir
cumstances would be likely to stimu
late and intensify the hostile feelings
against the white raoe which, for polit
ical effect, have been so industriously
inculcated by the carpet-baggers, and
which have already borne snch per
nicious fruits. In the meantime the
the children of the poorer classes of the
whites, 6uch as are unable to afford
the expense of private schools would be
growing np in ignorance.

at Saratoga, must be told: While there

that a beauty was. registered at the

stampede of the beau monde, but npon

making the merchantable article almost
worthless. There are twenty thousand
