There wag a bloody tiot io New Orleans
on the 30th ulrt,' resulting from an attempt
of the Governor of Louisiana to reassemble
the Stale convention of 18G4, with the
avowed purpose of enfranchising negroes
and disfranchising rebels. The convention
was elected id 1864, while the war was in
"progresB, and the State under military rule.
It accomplished the purposes for which it
was elected, and ha9 long since been a de
funct body. Cut the radical Governor, in
violation of all precedent, and in utter dis
regard of honor or law, i6ued a proclama
tion ordering elections to fill vacancies in
the said convention. This proclamation
was illegal from the fact that the Secretary
of State refused to countersign it or permit
the'fcual of State to be attached. The Lieut.
Gov., the Secretary of State, the Attorney
General, the Auditor and State Treasurer,
who v.ere all elected on the same ticket with
Gov. Wells, united in protesting against the
act of the Governor in his attempt to over
throw the government of the State by a law
lees and revolutionary meaeure, and their
remonstrance went to Washington.
, A meeting preliminary to the convention
waB held in New Orleans, at which the
wordt kind of incendiary speeches were
made by negro-worshipers, advising them
that they had a better right to office in
Louisiana than the rebels, and to arm them
selves and assert their superiority. Reso
lutions were passed demanding equality for
the nfgro in the State government.
Upon the heels of this incendiary meet
ing the convention assembled, and a row
gotten, up among themselves. The police
went to preserve order were tired on and
a bloody fight ensued, in which twenty-five
were killed and one hundred and fifty
wounded. The Governor, Presideut of the
convention, and members thereof are being
arrested. The police was sustained by the
uHitary, by order of President Johnson,
a-od martial law has been temporarily pro
claimed in the city.
Eethany School.
Editor Citizen Dear Sir: It was a
great pleasure we enjoyed on the 19th and
20th ult., at witnessing the examination of
the students of Bethany School in t' is
county. And with a view of repeating and
extending something of the same pleasure
to others, we undertake to write a short
letter. - "
As you and your readers may be aware,
the' School is under the conduct of Rev.
W. E. Caldwell, as Principal, while the
duties of instruction mainly devolved, for
past session, on S. A. R. Swan, Esq.,
Rev. I. N.s Caldwell, and Miss S. J. Mc
Callum, Assistants; and the success and
fidelity with which they discharged these
duties were clearly evinced by the prompt
and correct a.isweres given by the pupils
lo the questions' propounded to them on the
varied1 branches of study which they had
pursued during the past session.
The examination was thorough, on the
the part of the teachers, acd well sustained
on tho part of the younr gentlemen and
ladies of the school, in all branches of
learning, frora'the primary department to
the highest works of the Greek and Latin
classics. '----"
Th examination exercUes were inter
mingled with a pleasing variety of songs,
declamation, dialogues, &c. The oirginal
compoaitionaread on . the occasion, were
presented and read by the editors (mem
bers 'of. tho 6chool) of the "Literary
Wreathe" iThii racy paper was well filled
will essays, romances, humor, advertise
ments, 4.Vc. . .'
At. the . conclusion Rev. W. Stoddert, in
accordant' ft with' a previous invitation, de
livered A. very, interesting and instructive
lecture, .full of- learning and brilliant
thoughts, on the question as to ''whether
tJuoruiou is of more importance now than
before the war."
"Whoever listened to that lecture must
have gone away with a higher appreciation
-cf the value of a good education.
Many persons entertain objections to
mixed schools. But we are disposed to re
pudiate'aucb objections as without founda
tion and to concur vvii.li the conductors of
ti.i school, ia the assertion that the God of
naturo- desiirned that the sexes should be
companions .of each other, from the cradle
to the grave, and that it is a mere vulgir
prejudice -which . separates them in their
education. .Any who witnessed tho con
duct and performances of the boys and
giila in thii school, we feel assured, would
agre ttb the teachers:, that their associa
tion, had a very happy effect to stimulate
them to a laudable ambition in their studies
and in the amenities and proprieties of their
conduct,, , -., .i - -

Congress has Adjourned.
Congress adjourned on Saturday last.
Members from "Tennessee were admitted to
their 8eat3. Senator Fowler was admitted
to hi3 seat in the Senate. Senator Patter
eon was excluded from his seat in the Sen
ate by a vote of the House.
A bill equalizing the bounty of volunteers
and increasing the pay of members of Con
gress to 5,000 was passed. A bill admit
ting Nebraska into the Union was passed,
but not signed by the President.
Mr. Arnell and His Two Offices.
We raised the point seveaal days ago
whether Mr. Arnell could legally hold a
seat as Representative in the Legislature of
Tennessee, inasmuch as he claimed to be
the Representative in Congress from the
sixth district, and had the commission of
the Governor certifyirg to his election
We find in a leportof the pioceedings of
the United States House of Representatives,
on the 2Gth ult. the following:
"Mr. Dawes, of Massachusetts, rising to
a question of privilege, said that the Com
mittee on Elections had had under consider
ation the credentials of the following o-entle-men
claiming to be Representatives elect
from the State of Tennessee, viz: A. G.
Taylor, of the First District; Horace May
nurd, Second District; W. B.Stokes, Third
District; JMmund Cooper, Fourth District;
W. P. Campbell, Fifth District; S. M.
Arnell, Sixth District; J. R. Hawkins,
Seventh District, and J. W. Leftwich,
Eighth District, and had found the said
credentials correct and in due form, and in
accordance with the laws of the United
States and of the State of Tennessee. He
was further directed by the committee to
move that the oath of office be administered
to the gentlemen named."
The motion of Mr. Dawes was agreed to,
and such of the Representatives from this
State as were then present took the oath
and were admitted to 6eats. Had Mr. Ar
nell been present, he would have taken a
seat also. A motion, or a resolution was
adopted, we believe, to pay the Representa
tives from Tennessee their salary for the
full term, under which Mr. Arnell will draw
pay for the same time for which he has re
ceived pay from Tennessee as a Represen
tative in her Legislature. Our constitution
provides that no "person holding any office
under the authority of the United Slates
shall have a seat in the General Assembly-;
nor shall any person in this State hold
more than one lucrative office at the same
time." This provision covers Mr. Arnell's
case exactly. He is clearly ineligible to a
seal in the Legislature, and has been since
he accepted the certificate of the Governor
that he was elected. And yet he has con
tinued to occupy his seat and to vote upon
every important measure. According to
our constitution, every such vote is illegal.
D. B. Thoma3, Esq., was elected to the
seat to which Mr. Arnell has been declared
entitled, by a majority of 455 votes over
Arnell, but the Governor assumed to do
what the constitution of the United States
vests alone in the House of Representatives,
to judge of these returns'and he threw off
enough votes to enable him U give the cer
tificate to Mr. Arnell. Mr. Thomas is
clearly entitled to the seat, but the Radical
majority in the House will probably never
give it to him. Dispatch:

The Metropolitan Police Tramped.
The authorities of the city of Nashville
have petitioned Chancellor Campbell for an
injunction restraining the Metropolitan Po
lice Commissioners from exercising the
functions of their office until a hearing can
ba had before tho courts. Chancellor
Campbell grants it, and the injunction has
been issued. The people are determined
to see the orders of the court enforced.
The battle of Sadowa, the l ist of the se

one of the gieatest as well as most fiercely
fought tattles of modern times. Haifa
million of men were engaged about two
hundred and fifty thousand on each side.
The cannon numbered fifteen hundred,
and wera about equally divided between
the combatants. The 27th Prussiau Regi
ment went in neatly three thousand strong,
Mtid with ninety officers; all but two officers
and between three and four hundred men
were either killed or wounded.

Col. Henry Asiidv, of Fauquier count)',
Va., of the late Confederate army, was ar
rested at Knoxvillo, in this State, under an
indictment for treason against the State of
Tennessee. The Knoxville Commercial
says he was released, having, without the
least difficulty, given bail in the sum of
810,000 for his appearance at the next term
of the Circuit Court.
A dispatch from Washington to the New
York Tribune, 6ays: "Mr. Leftwitch, one
ot the Teenessee delegates who was to-day
sworn into office, had scarcely finished
shaking hand? with the SDeake.-, when his
name was called to vote on the bill to in
demnify loyal citizens of Tennessee for
property dgstroyed during the rebellion,
and he voted 'no.' It caused much com
ment among the Union members."
This was the bill which Col. Stokes in
troduced and advocated.
The night session of the House of Rep
resentatives, lasting until Saturday morn
ing, was filled with disgusting scenes.
Liquor flowed pretty freely from several
committee rooms, and the result was fully
exhibited on the floor of the House. In one
instance tellers were appointed who were
unable to stand in their places; and the ac
count they reported to the House ran a
hundred over a quorum. Members voted
early and often to make it appear that a
quorum was present. Jokes were related
and stories told. A dozen or so members
at one time had pitched battles with paper
wads, books, etc., which were flung through
the air in the hall.
Recovering from War.
We have repeatedly maintained the
ground that Tennessee, under a good sys
tem of government, will very rapidly regain
her former, and more than her former, en
viable prosperity. We frequently, however,
hear very opposite views expressed by
friends who see nothing but a loDg state of
depression and poverty as the result of '.he
recent ravages of war. Wo would commend
to their consideration the following pasage
from the North British Review for Septem
ber, 1865:
"Yet more astonishing than Frederic's
management of the war was the way in
which Prussia, under I113 guidance, recov
ered from its effects. The state of the
country at the close of the Seven Years'
conflict is not easy to be imagined. The
population had been decreased by ten per
cent.; wide tracts of country lay desolate:
the villages wor depopulated; the fields
were uncultivated; at best, only women
and children remained to follow theplaugh.
The very eeed-corn had been devoured.
The towns were hardly in better plight than
the country. In Berlin itself a third part
of the population was supported by alms.
But it the guilty ambition of Frederic had
reduced his country to this point of misery,
it is only fair to add that his industry and
administrative capacity soon raised her ou'.
of it. In some three or four year?, PrusH
was restored to comparative prospeiity.
There could hard ly tie a more interesting or
instructive study than to inquire carefully
how this was done."
A wise, efficient, paternal government,
seconded by an industrious, thrifty people,
accomplished the marvel. We may and do
confidently hope that the saire causes will
now a ceutury later produce like effects in
our own land.
Already we see most tangible proofs of
such workings in this goodly State. Rail
roads have been rebuilt and reopened with
astonishing rapidity; agricultural opera
tions are vigorously carried on from Shelby
to Carter; mining and manufacturing pro
jects are being pushed forward with great
zeal; anil the financial resources of the
State so skillfully conducted as to enable
the pubiic creditors to receive their Julv
interest in par funds. July 1, 1C61, who

A foreign correspondent writes: "The
unlooked for, and so to speak, brutal ener
gy of the Prussians in the commencement
of the campaign, united to their superior
fire arms, have done the work. " The Em
peror Napoleon is furious with his officers
fjr bavins refused as useless the breech
loading guns. If it had been France, in
stead of Austria, which was in the war
with Prussia, France, like Austria, would
have been beaten. The very th ought make3
the hair stand on his Majesty's head, and
well it may. The order has already been
given to furnish the French army with these
guns, with the greatest possible rapidity.
In may now even be too late, for French
workmen do their work so well, and they
carry new ideas into execution so slowly,
that the question of the Rhine may yet be
decided against France, and all on account
of these guns."
