The Proceeding of the Legislature upon
Sir Hayles' itcsoluiionx.
' "We regret that circumstances liave prevented cs
from giving our attention to tno receat discussion
in the House of Representatives, upon the Batless
Resolutions, eliciting, as vre understand they did, an
Interesting and instructive debate. "We have here
tofore expressed our regret at the position occupied
in that discussion by the Opposition members of the
The resolutions wo liave reason to believe, were
" notlntroduceil -with the intention of securing any
"party advantage,' but simply to give expression
to the deep abhorrence of the people of Tennfssee
to tlie " higher law and irrepressible" doctrine of
Mr. Seward and Jus associates, and the unwillingness
of the people of this State to sec any portion of their
representatives coalesce with a party favoring them.
If the premises were correct, and surelv no issue
on this was anticipated, then no Democratic trick''
could be made or intended in their adoption, unless
the Opposition by their donial of the facts and con
clusions gave it.
VTc liad hoped they would be unanimously adopt
ed, but it seems that the united Opposition vote of
; thi Senate was thrown against them. However, in
the House, a large portion of the Opposition, calling
for a division of the question on tlio passage of the
resolutions, were un'.villing to go to that extent, and
adopted a different policy ; with what wisdom we
leave for the public to determine.
Inasmuch, however, as it seems "probabla that
these resolutions are to form a part of the political
history of the State, it w well that tho position of
tiarties should be understood. We learn that the ef
forts of several of the speakers of the Opposition,
were directed to establish the complicity of Demo
crats and Southern men with the Harper's Ferry
insurrection ; that several of them, again, held the
Missouri compromise to be the " Pandora's box,"
and, further, that it was unjut to denounce the
whote Black Republican party because the large
body of them were 'conservative;" and yet again,
that we should not use the offensive term "Black,5' in
connection with the Republican party North, IIow-
oTer, the whole body of their fire was directed, ua
der cover of the Wisener" amendment, against
" DU unionists ' and " Secessionists," as if there ex
isted such a part- at the South. We mention the
course of argument pursued by the Opposition, that
tho people of the State may see the direction politi
cal opinions are likely to take in the State. Our
friends did right in laying the Wisener amendment
upon the table in order that a pure and simple con
demnation of the heresies of the leaders of the
Black Republican party might be had, and that the
exact views and sentiments of the leaders of the
Opposition in Tennessee might be seen.
We here again print the rtnolutions. as they were
Toted upon, and ask the calm and patriotic consider
jiUon of ,the people of Tenue.see, of all parties, to
tlie indications given by tlm vote.
First, the rote upon the following preamble :
Whkmias, A most dangerous epoch has arisen in
the history of our country, based upon the fanatical
aggressions of Northern Black Republicans on the
reserved rights cf the States and tho institutions of
the South, seeking to abolish slavery by preventing
its extension into common territory, and rendering
it insecure ami hazardous in our midst ; and where
as, in the recent insurrection at Harper's Ferry, as
well as in the revolutionary scenes in Kansas, we
recognize the legitimate fruits of that treasonable
policy avowed by tlie acknowledged head of the
Black Republican pnrty, Wm. H. Seward, in his fa
xaous Rochester speech, in which he said :
"These antagonistic systems free and slave la
bor arc continually coming in closer contact and
collision results. Shall I tell you what the colli
sion means 1 They who think Hint it is accidental,
unnecessary, the work of interested or fanatical
agitators, and therefore ephemeral, mistake the
case altogether. It is an irrepressible conflict be
tween the opposinj; and enduring forces, and it
means that tlie l'n te 1 States must and will, sooner
or later, becom- either entirely a slaveholding na
tion, or entirely, a free labor nation. Either the
cotton and rice fields of South Carolina and the su
gar plantations of Inuisiana will ultimately be till
ed by free lalmr. and Charleston and New Orleans
become marts for liKTi-lmmlise alone, or else the
rye fields and wheat fields of Massachusetts and
New York must attain !: surrendered by their farm
era to slave culture and the production o" slaves, and
Boston and New York liecmne once more market for
trade in the boilit-s ami souls of men. It is the fail
ure to apprehend thr great truth that induces ho ma
ny unsuccessful attempts at final compromise be
tween the slave ami free States, and it is the exist
ence of this great Tact that renders all such pre
tended compromises, when made, vain and ephem
eral." And WHERmsnicnry Wilson, another Black Re
publican Senator from Massachusetts, has declared :
"Let us remember that more than three millions
of bondsmen, groaning under nameless woes, demand
that we fehall reprove each other, and that we labor
for thoir deliverence. I tell you hero to-night that
the agitation of this question of human slavery will
continue while the foot of a slave presses tho soil of
tho American Republic."
And Whereas. Mr. Wade, another Black Republi
can Senator from Ohio, has said :
"There is really no union now between the North
and South, and he lielicved no two nations upon the
earth entertained feelings of more bitter rancor to
wards each other than these two nations of the Re
public. The only salvation of the Union, therefore,
was to be found "in divesting it entirely from all taint
. AxdWhbueak, Senator Seward, addressing South
ern Senators from his place in that body, has boldly
proclaimed to the world that
"At last a new voice issues from your own region,
from the South, from the ulave States, and protests
against your further persistence in this mod enter
prise Tof extemhnir slavery! and admonishes you
that it must and will fail. The cohorts are gathering
from tlie South: tht- men of moderation and co.lser-
i watism, ho, as tliey have heretofore moderated in
favor of sinverv anil asrainst freedom, will now be
obliged in consistency with their just and well cs-
taulisneil cnaracicr. anu ui'ir uauuuui jjninuiwiu,
to moderate ngainst you in favor of freedom, and
rise up unanimously against slavery."
And acain. at Rome, in New York. "It will be the
how of the next two years to witness the organiza
tion of this same Republican party within tlie slave

Bledsoe, Brazelton. Butler, Davis, Dudley. Gillepie.

The third vote was upon the second resolution,
which reads as follows:
Resolved, That we rerun! it as the sense of tha
Tcnnesee Legislature, that the declaration of Mr.
Seward that a roinvtable portion of the Southern
people, under the lead of arh men as Cassius M.
Clay and Franrie V. Blair, will unite with tho Black

The third resolution read a follows :

tives in Cortfrross to recognize as enemies to the
Union, and cspecialiv to the slave StaU-s, H who in
,any way favor or athliate with this section! BJack
Itcpublican party ; and that any action on their
part, which favoivs co-operation with tlie Black
Republicans in organizing the House, and flats
placing the offices and important eouirnittecs of that
". kody under their control, would be false Jo the sen
timent of the people of Tennessee, nn insult .to their
constituents, and disgraceful to themselves.
This. resolution received the united Democratic
mtt ,oteI.and was vofcid sg-iioet by the entire body of
j the Opposition. That any Tenncsseean should have
openly recorded his vote against such a resolution, i
we know will strike the public with surprise, and
Trill swerve to awaken them to the dangerous cx
tcntio which leading politicians in the South are
muiaff to go, to defeat the Democratic party, and
get-theaiselvcs into power.
The fourth and fifth resolutions read as follows :
Rtsolvcd, That we acknowledge our appreciation
of the promptness with which the National Admin
istration took steps to check the recent conspiracy
before it obtained the huge dimensions of a revolu
tion. Badced, That our Senators and Representatives
in Congress be furnished with a copy of these reso
lutions. Every member present voted in the affirmative,
with the exception of tlie following Opposition mem
bers, who voted against them :
Messrs. Caldwell. Cheatham, Davis, East, Ewing,
Gorman, Havron. Hurt, Martin, Morphis, Norman,
Porter, Richardson, Trewhit, Williams, of Knox,
Williamson and Wisener.
We have given the vote amUposition of parties
correctly. The deduction to ueilr3wn therefrom
we leave, for the present, to the dispassionate judg
ment of each intelligent reader. The moral of the
lesson we may hereafter hare occasion to allude to.
We invite the special attention of our readers to
a very able argument in to-day's paper, delivered
by our taleattd young friend, Wm. H. Bauksiui-e, in
the Houscof Representatives, on the bill introduced
by him into that body, for the expulsion of free
negroes from this State. It is one of the most cred
itable speeches which has been delivered during the
present session. We have not examined the details
of this bill, and cannot, therefore, speak of its mer
its. The evils which it seeks to remedy are certain
ly demanding the attention of the Legislature.

The J?anner, in its issue on Monday morning, com
menting upon the Harper's Ferry resolutions, ?e
cently passed by tlie Legislature, has the following
remarkable paragraph :
'' It is time for the Opposition to take a bold and
independent position. They should not allow them
selves to be frightened out of their sense of propri
ety by the bullying process of the DemocraVcina
jority. They have allowed themselves too Ions to
be wheedled into the support ot Democratic tricks,
In this manner tliev have lost strength and they will
never recover it until ther learn to treat their
manoeuvres with tho contempt they deserve."
" It is time for tlie Opposition to take a bold, and
independent position." What means our cotcmpo
rary! Has the Opposition been lacking in boldness
and independence ? If so, will it indulge us by an
awering, upon what question? But this paragrapl
is significant. According to our reading, there is a
"palpable hit" at Messrs. Zorj.icoFFEit, Mayxard
and others. " They (the Opposition) hare allowed
themselves too long to be xheedled into the support
of Democratic tricks." Will the Banner answer us
when we respectfully ask, who has been "icheeilMj
and "into the support of" what "Democratic
But we earnestly protest against the charge made
by the Banner against Messrs. Maetix, Wisener.
BitAZKi.Tox, Butler, Senter and others, that they
were "frightened out of their sense of propriety by
the bullying process of tlie Democratic party."
l we correctly know the character of these gen
tlemen, they are not easily frightened or bullied
They are opposed to us in politics, but we give them
credit for what thoy have done, believing that then-
action was prompted, net by fear, but by reasons
satisfactory to themselves, if not to us and to the
Banner. If we are mistaken, however, and the Ban-
ner be right, then is the implied censure of the arti
cle justly administered.
We are at a loss to name this new division in the
politics of the State. Shall it bo tho Hards and
Softs, or Bellites and anti-BclIites? These terms
may not sufiiciently express the factions that now
make war in their camps. We suppose, however,
that the term used by the Banner u tlie cost sig
nificant and appropriate. They (the Opposition, says
the Banner,) liave allowed themselves too long to be
vheedUd, Sx. It is, therefore, " IPfceeJfrs and anti
Wheedlers.'' Hurrah for the anil-Wheedlers, who
would not be "bold and independent."

The following call for a meeting of tlie "friends of
impartial Freedom" at Philadelphia, on the day of
the hanging of the traitor John Brotcn. we copy as
indicative of tho reckless fanaticism which controls
a large portion of the Northern people :
5!2r PUBLIC MEETING JOnN BROWN. A
Public Meeting of the friends of Impartial Freedom
will be held in NATIONAL HALL, Market street

none of irhich have as vetleen pHblishetl.and which are
of the deepest interest, will be read on the occasion.
There isanothersentiment, however, at the North,
reflected by tho sound national Democracy. This
sentiment is properly expressed by the Philadelphia
Pcnnsylvanian, in its strictures upon the foregoing
in which it says :
Here, and in our public halls. Abolitionism pro
poses to solemnize a day on which, under the laws
he has outraged, a noted malefactor, convicted of in
citing to insurrection, and his hands stained with
many murders, expiates his crime-, upon the gallows,
and to hold up the fanatical wretch as a saint and a
We protest that these exhibitions of treason and
disloyalty, are an insult to the patriotism of our peo
ple, degrading to our character as citizens of a com
mon country, and call for the most prompt and se
vere measures for their repression. Never before
has the effort been made here to give a saintly char
acter to the red hand of murder, and to hail the in
cendiary toch as a religious guide ; and i' is the
ebulition now of the extremest madness, and cov
ers designs of the blackest trexson.
-lhe circumstances m winch we are placed with
reference to the sections of the Union, demand of
the whole community an active, energetic reproba
tion of the mad designs of those who would tram
ple upon the Constitution and all its sacred guaran
tees; and we owe this not only to our own loyalty
but to thoe who, intimately connected with us by
the ties of a common country, have too much cause
to apprehend danger to the Union from the spirit of
mad fanaticism now so unfortunately prevailing.
We regret that this expression cannot now be made
until after one of the mad fanatics shall hare atoned
with his 'ife for his many crimes, and when a false
and morbid sympathy may find influence with many.
But pity for the man, no matter how misguided,
ought not and must not stand in the way of the par
amount duty of every good citizen, from tlie highest
considerations and motives that can actuate man, to
declare his free recognition of all his duties and
obligations as a man and a citizen, in order to main
tain the Constitution of the Union intact, preserve
our nationality, and perpetuate and promote the
prosperity of tlie whole country, binding every sec
tion still closer by the tis of undoubted friendship
and common interest. Right and duty calls: the

The Louisville meeting was an eminent success.
Mainly was the enthusiasm engendered by the calm,
dignified and encouraging report of President
Fowlkes. But greatly was it enhanced by the firm,
solid basis of facts set forth eloquently by Gen.
Richardson. They were stated with such clearness
and perspicuity, and so forcibly, that a boy could
readily understand them, while their accumulation,
as he "proceeded, carries' conviction to the mind of
every hearer. Ho was succeeded by A. S. Mitchell,
Esq.," editor of the St. Louis Evening Xetrs. Mr. M.

Hoc.se. The intrest in the organization of the
House is. if possible, on the increase. Long before
noon the galleries were densely filled, and crowds
were unable to obtain admittance. Notwithstand
ing the weather, there is the usual attendance of
ladies. On tho floor there were tho customary sal
utations among members and others, and a pleasant
excitement prevailed everywhere.
Mr. Allen, Clerk of the last House, called the
House to order at noon. The din of voices imme
diately ceased. Spectators were excluded from
the floor, and members took their seats. The roll
was called, and 231 members answered to their
name. The absentees were Stillworth and Lan

Mr. Burnet contended there was no power here to

Decided in the negative by two majority.
Mr. Vnllaudighnm remarked that some Democrats
were absent. Three of them might be here to-morrow.
Therefore he voted aye.
Mr. Clark resumed, but in a tone not altogether
audible. He wished to show why the resolution
ought to pass, and to present to the American
people the position certain gentlemen occupied as
regards the Speakership. Heretofore the people
were divided as Democrats and Whigs, There
was conservative and fraternal feeling. Thero
was scarcely found an American cititizen who ad
vocated insurrection, robbery and dissolution.
No party, since this Government has had a histo
ry, however fond of power, has had until now so
much disrecard to the popular will, as to send
forth to the country at large a document advising
the disfranchisement and murdering of a large por
tion of the people.
Mr. Kilcorc, ot lnuiana. explained, and was un
derstood to say that he condemned, as strongly as
the gentleman from Missouri possibly could, the
avowal of such sentimsnts.
Without concluding tlie consideration' of the sub

Mr. PAYNE did not consider it a new application
for State aid. The Company were eutitld to ipiu,-
000 per mile under ths general internal improve

eqoip their i ofcd. When they agreed to take S0.000
per mite, that amount was thought to be sufficient.
The contrary, however, was the fact, and the Com

with the otter roaus in tno s ate, ouon au ujumta

In regard to tho objection of tho Senator from

the bi;l and nmtndment on the table jeas 30,
Mr. LEA moved to amend the amendment by
adding- tbe words ." and except in case of indict
ment toe illegal voting."
Mr. BAYLESS thought this bill was proper and
Mr. FRA'IER was in fiver of the bid and amend
ment. Mr. McCA.BE thought the present law was strong
enough, ana titiouli oppose the bill and amend
wsnts. Mr. MORRIS objected to the bill and thought we
had beitsr adopt tae vha voce system than to pass
such a law as is here proposed. He would move at
the proper time to amend the bill by striking out
ihe enacting clause.
Mr. GAN ft could s;c no constitutional objection
lo the bill. He had an amendment prepared which
he fhould clfer at the proper lime, providing that
when any voter may be ar.sent from his civil dis
trict aad univoidably dtt lined, his.vo:e may be re
ceived in any prpcinct in tbe counly, upon mating
oath that ha has not and will not vote again cn that

rscorJs kept by State officials. Ho opposd the
bill in tola.
Mr. BUTLER said the constitutional objection to
the bill canuol be met. Ho preferred tho ballot
syttem cf vo'ing
Mr. BENNEIT would change the conalilution eo
as to engraft in it tha vica voce eystom if he could.
Mr. YAUGHAN was opposed to the bill and
should certainly vote agiiost it.
Mr BEATY explained that the first section of
the bill confined tho voter to bis own civil district,
where he will be known, aad every man can know
thai he has tbe right to vote. If that section Bbould
be adopted, the others were of little conieqaence io
comparison. The seco'id section proposes that ev
ery ballot shall he numbsred and the number regis
tered, while the amendment proposes that this shall
be kept secret, except in cases of a- contested elec
tion. He demandcu a uivirio j of tno question, and
hoped every man would -how his hand.
Mr. B1CKNELL thought the people had a right
to go into any part of the coualy on elcci03 days,
and there vote, and the bill conveyed tha idea to
his mtud or a police regulation more than any body
else. He'hoptd the bill would be voted down and
opposed the propositions contained in the bill.
Mr. SHREWSBURY objected to the pwtage of
the bill and would he compelled to vote agaiust it.
Mr CALDWELL oppss.'d the bill, let it be amend
ed as it may; for he "thought the pressnt laws bet
ter than any amendment yet porposed. He was
oppoeeltotak ng this step until the people of the
country should ak for it.
