Certainly not. Colonel Piatt does not sustain Ben LeFever, be he brave or cowardly. He seels his defeat, aud is workiughard to accomplish that result. But this cannot be accomplished by distort ing his military record or abasing the sol dier. Colonel Piatt recommended Major LeFever lor promotion upon the recorded recommendations of Generals Bosecraus, Crittenden, and Colonels Stanley Matthews mid Cummins, who affirmed tliut he was a gallant and efficient ofllcer. The charges preferred against- LeFever by the anonymous author lu the JctTerum Ian were, that ho did not enter the service as a private, that he was under tire but once, aud then was guilty of shameful misconducts ,,..'. . 1 . We'kncw these charges were false. We knew Ben LeFever entered the service as a private, fur we had seen his honorable discharge, and the reportx of his superior oiflcers, who speak warmly of his bravery and obedience. Instead of being l.i one only, he was in five of the hardest fouaht battles In the Arrav . of the Cumberland, and In all won for himself the confidence aud support of his superior officers. And when the proof is failed for, it con sists of a protest, signed by all the officers, to his promotion over tho iiend of. as they claim, a more deserving officer, and the ouly charge Is that LeFever has been away top much from his regiment on de tached service. Had he been open to the charge of misconduct on the field, would not these officers have used the fact to his prejudice? They did not, nnd it is too fate, in the midst of a heated political con test, to prefer it now. Our friends do not understand and ap preciate the feeling that pervades the army of the Union. At least a dozen brave Re publican officers said to us at the late Con vention, 'if this sort of thing goes on, we will lose every soldier's vote in Ohio." While appeals to patriotism make (is suc cessful with the army, abuse of their com rades will only weaken our cause. Wa must remember that a large number of these Soldiers arc old Democrats, nnd while they w ill stand firmly by our Hag at home, as they did in the field, are in no humor for unmerited abuse of comrades. , Acquittal of Major Gee. Major Gee, of the Confederate Army,' had charge of the military prison al Salis bury, North Carolina. He Avas paroled with General Johnston's command, but was subsequently arrested by order of Stanton, and, after nine month's imprison ment, was brought to trial before a milita ry court, on tbe charge of violating the laws of war, in cruel treatment of Federal prisoners. After a protracted trial, in which many witnesses were examined on the part of the Government, Major Gee was acquitted. . , ; The Charleston Courier, " remarking on the result, says: It was probablv true that there was freat suffering and mortality at Salisbury; nt, as has been stated, it was fully estab lished! . 1. That every officer connected with that post and prison made every possible effort to supply the prisoners. 2. That they were supplied to the full extent of the ability ot the country and the Government. 3. That ot no time. In no way. was there ever made any difference as to the quanti ty and quality of supplies furnished them and the Confederate soldiers who guarded tlieni; and ' 4. That their sufferings were caused by the failure of their Government to furnish thein with proper supplies, by Its refusal to exchange them, and by Its hostile opera tions, which rendered it impossible to se lect a proper place for a prison depot." What the New York Herald Thinks will Result from the Philadelphia Convention. In its characteristic style the New York Herald discusses the Philadelphia Conven tion. It scouts the idea that a new party will spring out of It; but It Is satisfied that the Convention; will help do what the peo ple have determined on doing, This opin ion it states thus: . ' "The Philadelphia Convention may as-; slst in the work by dividing the Republi can party ; but so far as organizing a new party is concerned, it will be as. powerless as Jack Hamilton's mulatto Convention, which is to meet In the same city, and to be attended by delegates from Texas who do business in Wall street, fand delegates from North Carolina who reside iu.Herkl mer.couuty, New York. Its moral effect will be bendficlal; but the people will take hold of the Issues In a more practical way. They have the whole subject brought home to their pockets every day by the taxes,the tariff and 'the. high prices, and they see Congress kept Irt .session 'by the jobbers and. robbing the Treasury by wholesale. Let the Philadelphia Convention open Its doors wide to all men of all parties, so that there may be a grand, uprising of the jjpli tiulans; but the uprising of the people will accomplish, more than any .

At that hotel were many leading men of the South, some of whom suffered for months from a disorder which appeared to be poison. The parties to. that! deadly crime were generally sup posed to be free-negro servants, who had been instigated to it by some Abolition miscreants of the North, who owed a spite to Presi dent Buchanan. .. What Does Citizenship Confer? 'In his speech at New Albany, In diana, quite recently, Governor Morton, while he gave, strong ap probation, to , the-.' Constitutional Amendment that Congress has sub mitted tt) the respective States for ratification, wherein full and com plete citizenship is conferred on the Negro,' denied that it made him a voter, and took Hon. Joseph ,E. McDonald to task for having claimed that it does do so. ' It cer tainly follows that if a Negro isj by the Constitution, declared to be as .much of a , citizen as a white maiL and that none of the rights and immunities thus conferred can be abridged by any of the States, he is a voter as much an a white man. ' At Bloomington, Indiana. Mr. McDonald made a speech on the 21st, where he discussed this question thus: ' ' ! The first section of the proposed amendment declares "that all per sons born or ' naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and Of the btate wherein they reside.- No ' State shall make or enforce any laws which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the United. States." A citizen, according to Aristotle, "is one" who is a partner in the leg islative and judicial power of the country." -,- 'i ... ... Bonnier says "a citizen is one who under, the , Constitution and laws of the United States has r a right, to , vote for Representatives in Congress and other , public ot Seers, and .who is qualified to fill offices in the rift or the people. -. -; Webster defines a citizen ,16 mean "a person native or natural ized, who has the privilege of ex ercising the elective franchise, or the qualifications ,,which enable him to vote for rulers and purchase and hold real estate." . . t ;., . . These definitions are , sustained by the judicial decisions of many of the States, and by the Supreme ICourt of the United States. , But. says Governor Morton, with an air of triumph, women and chil dren are citizens, and yet they do not vote I To that I answer; Un der the" Constitution as it now stands (in a general sense,) white women and white children are. But black women and .black, chil dren are not. If, however, ,ypu adopt , the proposed , amendment, you, cpnler.the same , rights upon iiegrp women that are joow enjoyed by white women, and upon negro children the,, same rights which white children have; and upon .ne gro men the same rights' ' thafc,"can be claimed for white 'men,!'arid, no distinction can any longer be made ori account' of color or race, for the Tights, of citizenship, both Sliate and National,, with all the concom itant, rights and inimunities belong ing thereto, are conferred upon the hegio race to the same extent that ihey are now enjoyed by the white ace, and secured by,the same'eoh ktitutlonal ' guarantees.' It is; claimed by Governor1 Morton that bw.anse the States Jnow regulate 'elective' franchise, and that; pce? is not ;drectly takei' away by Uje proposed amendments, that alter the adoption tthe States may (till prohibit negroes from voting ? r holding office. ' To this I answer, hat) under tho Constitution, as it no jv.i taads, States may uofc . only reguiaU the elective franchise, but each ta'ie may' f itself determine W'hj may become citizens ' thereof, and on what terms.; i In the -exeri ciseiOt.thif right; Indiana! adopted the-yhirteenth Article of, her Con-i stion, ,',aiIed, : I have. nJ doubt, tythe vote of , Governor Morton, by which: she in 'effect declared that negroeB1' should1, not ' acquire ' the rights, of citizenship here; bu$;the proposed amendment declares that i alj persons .bprv.-in ., the .United States," without regard to e', or 2olor, shall be' citizens,1 nbt;dnly of 1 the' United State's; but of the State in which they reside,' and : at 'once takes away' from - the States ! the :owex! theyjioirposseaSj'of guard ing themselves against the settle meWi.ithia':Uicitr.liniit; of Bob classes"as' theyiay deem 'delri mental to them, .and while a State may still prescribe a pterin of resi dence for persons corning into and. settling within its limits, the rule under the amendment must: apply to whites and .blacks alike. So of the elective franchise, or any other privilege of citizenship; for, being alike citizens of the States wherein they reside with their white fellow citizens, the' negro could not be kept from the polls by any . State law which .did notj on the .same terms and4 conditions, keep the white mah, away. . Tho ; States might 6till,: h doubt, prescribe qualifications lor voters', such as property or education,! but every citizen white ; or black, who pos iBessed those qualifications, would be entitled to' vote. No State could any longer say that none should vote bnt white male ; citizens over the age of twenty-one years, for such a law would "abridge the privileges and immunities of citi zens of the United States." One of the clauses' of the Bill of Rights in onr State Constitution, declares that "The General Assembly fhall not grant any citizen, or . class of citizens, ,priviliges, or immunities which, upon the same terms, shall not equally belong to all citizens." Now, will any one say, if the Con stitution of the United States con fer upon negroes born in this coun try, 'the right of citizenship, not only in the United States,; but of the State wherein they reside, that every native born negro residing in the State of Indiana would not be the , political equal of the white citizens of the State?., Aud being Citizens of the State, what rights enjoyed by the . white citizens could, on account of their color, be denied to them?.- But, says, Governtfr Morton, "as to what constitute citizenship in a State depends upon its Constitu tion and laws. The conditions dif ferin different States." That , is true under the Constitution as it now stands, but how unfair to nrguo thatitwill.be so still after tho adoption of an' amendment by which it is declared that citizen ship in the United States and a residence in a State shall constitute all such without regard to ' local laws or State Constitutions citizens of such State. Again, he, (Gover nor asserts that one may still be a citizen ot tho United States.,, and not a citizen . of any, State. That is true, for he may reside in aTenitq ry ; but what benefit is to result from this sage discovery of Gov. Mor ton's I am unable to see.. Lei him or his friends answer this questiou. Under the . proposed, amendment can a man be a citizen oi the Uni ted States and a resident of a State and not be a citizen of such State? And can any State law deprive any class tf persons of such rights? But I will not pursue this ques tion any further at this time. Oth er subjects demand your ' attention and, mine. The purpose of thesei amendments is plain;, it is to make all persons bom in ,tliis country, without ' regard .to race or . coloi, "equal '.before the 'law:.? . It is , to divide the power to govern, with four millions, of an inferior race, and this is well known to the Re publican leaders inIndiana, but they have not the honesty to avow it, lest .the .people condemn them. But I say to you be. not deceived, for upon you finally rests the re sponsibility of deciding these great questions. Beware,, therefore, yqu decide them right.

The court and audience were pretty well prepared for tbe development by the announce ments in the morning papers in re lation to the affair. On Friday morning a paragraph appeared in one of the city journals, to the ef fect that, at the close of the ser vices on Thursday, night, fat the First Baptist Church, just as the congregation were leaving, they were invited to remain, and they again took their seats. Thompson, a white .man, walked up to the front of the pulpit, accompanied by a coal-black negro woman, and producing his marriage license, the twain were made one flesh and and blood, in due form, by the offi ciating minister of the church." This statement was questioned and condemned by the Banner, with the suggestion -. that if the white man and negro woman were actually joined together, at the time indicated by a disgusting mockery of one of the holiest rites sanctioned by the church, it could only hxre occurred at the Colored Baptist Church. Our surmise was in the main correct. In the list of marriage licenses printed yester day morning appear the names of the lively pair: "William A. John son (not Thompson) to Josephine McConnico." X. The marriage li cense, of which we have been per mitted a glimpse, bears on its front the following: . - "Vllllani A. Johnson to Josephine 11c Connloo. Issued June 28, 1SCC. "I solemnized the Rite of Matrimony be tween the within named parties on the 28th, of Juno. . ( ' i . "NELSON MERRY." The license was regularly issued to tho man Johnson by the deputy clerk of the County Court, never for a moment suspecting that a white man of the applicant's 'ap pearance designed such a use or abuse of its privileges. The offici ating1 minister, Rev. Nelson Merry,' is a freedman, for whose active part in this interesting and' impressive cercmony.he is liable to a fine of five hundred dollars. .The case was' called by the, Marshal, and the ma ted doves ranged themselves in front of the bench, the dusky bride in sun-bonnet and calico, and her "lord of the lion heart and eaglo eyd" Clad in a dirty linen duster. ' To the question of the Court if he was married to the negro woman,' the so-called 'white man' replied that he. was. He was from Ohio; he did not know it was against the law; he did not say to the clerk, when apylying for the license, that ho was going to marry a negro; his courtship was so very brief it amounted to no courtship at all. And by this, his own confession, it will be seen that he rushed into the bridal noose and practically em-1 braced . the miscegonative faith with the moral but reckless hero-' ism of a martyr. Together, they presented a very pitiable picture of degradation, of which the so-called white man was the prominent figure. By the sys- tern that ho would introduce here in Tennessee, there is no doubt but we should soon be rid of the inex--tinguishable nigger but whether ' the country would be the better for the cross remains to be dis. closed. Such white men are not;; likely to elevate the race, and we ' are surprised that even an ordinary looking negress should mate with a ' ereature so utterly depraved.' - But chacuh a son gout.
