ITEMS OF GEXEHAI. SEWS.
Tho Sub-Coramittee. who hare been taking
testimony relative to tho condition or affairs in
Tennessee, submitted their report, which was
More favorable than otherwise. Tho Committco
discussed tho question of admitting tho Repre
sentatives from Tennessee to their scats in Con
gress, and the majority favored it, provided that
the Constitution of TenneMeo should flnt Lo ex
amined by Congress, and prove to ho Republican
in torn, when it is proposed to declaro that tho
State is restored to the Union. It is 'further
intimated that a portion of her delegation Is
willing to accept of this plan, which Is, ft
course, contrary to the restoration pol.cy
pawned by the PrasIdenU for, as stated in .the
Cessni ttco to-day, it virtually proposes to readmit
Tennessee to tho Union. Although no Vote was
reached, it is believed that at the next meeting
the Committee Trill Teport in favor of admitting
the Tcnneiieo delegation, if the form indicated
has been gone though with in tho House.
The Home Committee on Banking, in accord
ance with the views of the Treasury Department,
will soon report in faror of adopting some plan
compelling the National Banks to change the
present system of allowing said banks to hold interest-bearing
Segal tender notes for the redemp
tion of their liabilities. This courso will compel
tho National Banks to surrender the interest
bearing notes, and to substitute legal tenders.
This will b'l a movement in favor of contracting
the currency.
Tho TeWgraphlc Correspondent of the Cin
cinnati papers of tho ICth, gives them the follow
ing: "Abandf forgers of Government vouchers
has beim arrested. It turns out that a printer
nataed Bogart, employed in the Dispatch office
here, has been doing the signing, and is believed
to have been instrumental in procuring the print
ing of the blanks. It is known that one of tho
Tang has received three thousand dollars as his
part of the proceeds. Jlamifications of the swin
dle are quite extensive, and by this time various
parties in Kentucky are arrested. Bogart has
made a clean breast of it, implicating a number of
persons."
THE PEOPLE SPEAKIXG OUT.
The popular uprising in Tennessee is
almost universal. Nearly all tho counties
will lxt represented in the Convention in
tliis city on the 22d inst. From day to day
wo have given tho proceeding of public
meetings appointing delegates, and declar
ing their views of the political situation.
"Vc add to tho list this morning the resolu
tions of the Giles and Smith county meet
ings. CILKS COCSTT.
JUtuhtd, Tli at we heartily concur in the call
made upon tbo people of Tennessee to meet in
Convention atAoshvillo, on tho 2d insU to give
soma expression of thelrsenlimcnt favorable to a
complete and speedy restoration of our State to
all her rights of equality and influenco in tho
Union.
Jtetohed, That wo give our hearty and unquali
fied endorsement of the policy of the present
Kxeeutiro of the United States, "His Excellency,
Andrew Johnson, Tennessee's most distinguished
son," for tho attainment of this desirable result.
Jtetohed, That the Chairman and Secretary of
this meeting, the various public civil officers of
this county, together with three Persons to be ap
pointed by this meeting from each of tho civil dis
tricts of this county, act as delegates to said Con
vention! to meet in Nashville upon the anniver
sary of the birthday of the Father of llii Country.
And that any citizens of this county, who may be
present nt said Convention, and who endDrso the
sentiments of the above resolutions, bo'rejiuosted
also to' act as delegates, and co-operate with tho
delegates from this county upon that occasion.
HMITU coiNTr.
1. Jtetohed, That we, a portion of tho citizens
of Smith county, in convention assembled, for the
purpose of appointing delegates to tho State Con
vention at Nashville, on the22d instnnt, do here
by declaro that we have full faith and confidence
in the patriotism, integrity and wisdom of Tennes
see's boasted son, Andrew Johnson, President of
the United States, and that we cordially endorse
and earnestly support the restoration policy of his
administration.
2. Ueeolved, That in tho name of Justice, the
loyal people of Teunesseo, and her thirty-firo
thousand Federal soldiers, we' demand tho admis
sion of our Senators and Representatives oloctod
to ther scats in tho National Congress, and
to the full and complete restoration of our State
.to all hot- rights undor tho Constitution.
3. Jlemhed, That every effort to deprive the
Slate of Tennessee of herjuit position in tho Gov
ernment to bo organised as a territory is absurd,
and a virtual acknowledgement oi the nrinciplo
of secession which it has taken four bloody years
to suppress, and that we invite all, whatever may
have been their past history, to unite with us in
the future to support our Governments and that
we declaro our purpose to sustain it njUnst all its
enemies, CQino from what source they may.
TIIE CONSTITUTIOXAIi AHEXIWEXT.
The amendment to the Constitution cf the
United Statfet, reported by the lladical non
reconstruction Committee, docs not suit the
ficvcralVqmbcrg of tho " happy family."
The Washington correspondent of tho Ciii
cago TtWx FayH:
"The general impression here, among those who
have good means of obtaining correct informa
tion, U that tho constitutional amendment,
which passed 'the House recently, will not paw
tbo Senate. Tho lladlcals will oppose it,
regarding it as a comnrumiso of tho prin
ciples uf eternal truth and cvrrlastlng justice
whieh divine Providence has kindly committed to
Ibe-lr keeping and specially commissioned tiiem
toadv&ner. Sumner, honest though fanatical, and
learned though imtiracucaeie, uenouncca u in
unmeasured terms the other day, as a disgraco to

thA rrtnnlrr. nnt! h rannat of tho declaration of In
dependence; so that of course ho and ail his friends
will roto against It. The Democrats, with Itever
dy Johnson at their head, will vote against it also,
leaving It to the feehlo support of a few milk-and-water
Republicans, including Fojseudcn, wh
doesn't hesitate to say that it is not 'strong'
enough."
Our own opinion is that it matters not at nil
whether the Senate agrees with the House,
orthollouso with tho Senate, or whether
neither or both agree in tho recommenda
tion of amendments to the Federal Constitu
tion. All of them have to be submitted to
the States for ratification, and if tho people
are worthy of freedom, they will take care
of all these mjttera at the right time and in
the right way.
A contemporary says a newspaper, "like
a child, is most liable to die before it talks."
Experience teaches that newspapers talk at
tho moment of their birth. They die of
over-talking and wrong-talking misleading
people, telling lies, and saying things that
do nobody any good and please nobody.
Sometimes they livo as tho mistleloe lives
on tho bough of the oak by drawing their
substance from individual owcr and re
source, nothcir own livo as parasites. In
litis case they livo by lying and by minis
tering to the interests of one or more cofed
crated scoundrels. Some live by levying
black mail upon innocent and upright com
munities, and some by whitewashing and
receiving tho weekly stipends of the ene
mies of good government and good society
and good morals. Some die because they
are edited by men who ought to be in the
lunatic asylum and some, according to lo
cation, because sensible and virtuous and pa
triotic people will not read them. Thencws
paper that lives and prospers talks always
and talks intelligently and rightly. If any
other aort livo it is because the people
who read them arc either ignorant or tricky.
There are wveral of this sort in the United
State.
cxder "which kix?
Gov.Brownlow in his editorial of tho 14 th
thus defines his position in the struggle be
tween the President and Uic Radicals:
"If the 'people overdid plant themselves firmly
on any platform, it is on the platform now occu
pied by the so-called Radicals or 'faction' contl
tutlng the majority in the present Congress. We
go with that 'faction' of radicals. We approve
tuV principles and policy; and live or die, sink
or swim, survive or perish, we risk our life, our
fortune and our sacred honor on board of that
ship."
The issue between our Governor and the
President Is tho aharply made up. It
now becomes our legislators to determine,
under the altered circumstances, which lead
sir they will follow. Wm. G. Brownlow or
Andrew Johnson T "That is the question."

A CANARD.
The Philadelphia Frets, of the 12th, conj
tains a letter from its New York correspond
ent referring to James Walker, Esq.,
formerly of this city, and for many years
connected with the Insurance Companies of
.Nashville. It is a fabrication from first to
last. The individual described as in pov
erty, and keeping the door of a theatre for
a bare pittance is an impostor, if jhe repre
sented himself as Mr. "Walker ; though we
think it more likely that tho Prat and its
correspondent are palming oft" the whole
story, knowing it to be false, in order to in
crease and intensify the prejudice of its
readers against the Southern people.
This is a strong statement, and would
scarcely be allowable in regard to any pa
per unless it was inspired and controlled by
John W. Forney, who is undoubtedly the
basest Hessian of them all. He lias heen
properly described as tlie most perfect poli
tical chameleon of the time, invariably
changing color by what he feeds on. His
politics are determined by the amount of
pelf he may receive as tho reward of the
most degrading service which the necessities
of any party may require. This much in
regard to the source of this canard.
Jfr. James Walker, tho lather of Gen
Wat. Walker, the leader of the Nicaragua
an expedition, removed from this city in
1864, after a residence of moro than forty
years, to Louisville, Ky., and is now an in
mate of the family of his son-in-law, L.
IlicnARDsoN. He is seventy years of age,
and the subject of cataract in both eyes. He
is possessed of ample means, and is the ob
ject of the tender interest and care ef an
only daughter. So far as the statement of
the Press is concerned, it is false in every
particular. There is not a sluidow of truth
in it, tr about it.
GEX. KIIERJtAXT
Gen. Sherman made a speech at Detroit
tho other day. It was short as that of a sol
dier, and wise as that of an intelligent patriot.
Ho said:
"Iknow the man at tho head of affairs afWash
ington. and all we hare to do is to trnit him. fan-
plausoj and give him our hearty and earnest sup
port, vi e certainly nave a origin and prosperous
iuturo before us. Jnstood of war let us cultivate
the arts of peace. Letthoplow and the anvil and
ino macninesnopiaKeine place oi tne sworn ana
mooayonet, ana a nappy luturo ism storotor.us.
Cannot our people extract a lesson from
this? Cannot our legislators and those in
authority throughout the State accept the
teachings of Gen. Sherman on a subject $o
vital to the future of the Union and of the
States? If they would accept and act upon
these views, the General would vote for tliem,
if he were here, and we would vote
for them, if we were not disfranchised.
The friends of tho Constitutional Govern
ment of this country arc the same in scnti
ment. All who arc on thU platform are loyal,
all tcw are not are disloyal. As the President
said to tho Montano delegation : "I care
not by what name tho party administering
tho Government may be denorainted the
Union party, the Republican party, the
Democratic party, or what not no party
can administer the Government successfully
unless it is administered upon the great prin
ciples laid down in that paper." This if a
truth that will live in after times as well as
the present. If we do those things General
Sherman says "we have a bright and pros
perous future before us." If we fail in this,
God help ns hereafter.
THE HOUSE OF ItEI'RESEXTATIVES.
The House failed again on yesterday to
obtain a quorum on the franchise bill. It
shows a lamentable state of public afihirs
when upright and patriotic men feel com
pelled to adopt extraordinary steps to pre
vent mischievous legislation. We presume
that tho failure to progress with tho franchise
question is owing to the fact that certain
members deem it their duty to abacnt them
selves from the sittings of tho House, We
have had no conference with the members
who arc charged with obstructing business
in that body, but presume they have well-
considered reasons for the course they sec fit
to pursue. Wo reserve any further expres
sion of opinion at the present time, further
than to say, that the gentlemen who are re
sisting the gag of the previous question, and
the despotic haste with which the tnijority
are endeavoring to decide upon the impor
tant issues involved in the bill under discus
sion, ar6 lenown as liberal -and enlightened
legislators, and will be prepared to render at
any timo a. faithful account of their stew
ardship. '
Mr. Foote's work on the Itebellion, re
cently published'tby tho Harpers" of New
York, is marked by tho well known char
acteristics of that eccentric personage. It
discourses volubly Upon a number of mat
ters personal in their nature, but scarcely
gives a fact which.the scrupulous future his
torian of these eventful times wilr'care to
make use of. It id an unpacking of his
heart with words, oftcner than otherwise,
tinged with bitterness, Tather than a fair
chronicle of tho events he sets out to relate.
The public mind has other and better em
ployment than the reading of Mr. Footc's
criticisms upon the public men with whom
he has been associated. They arc quite
piquant gossip for politicians in the small
senso of the nrord, but tho earnest, honest
peoplo of this country have little patience
for a book of this sort, and wo can see no
good purpose, present or prospective, that it
can subserve. Tho object of a volume on
so serious a theme as the recent rebellion
should be to enlighten and instruct. This
can do neither. We have no. desire to in
jure tho sale of the edition now presented,
and presume it will bo easily disposed of,
but wo predict that it will soon take its place
on tho upper and dusty shelves, and bo re
garded as ono of tho trivial political curiosi
ties of the times.
Tiik Georgia papers inform us that tho mil
itary commission that recently tried Mr. G.
B. Lamar, of that State, for cotton frauds,
bribery, Ac,, has adjudged that he should
pay a fine of $23,000, and undergo three.
years' imprisonment. Though the judg
ment has not been made public, this is un
derstood to be its scopo and effect. It is
added that the President has ordered Mr.
Lamar to bo released on ball until ho has
time to examine fully into the evidence
upon which tho decision is aased. Prob
ably the President wants to ascertain the
man who was bribed a very pertinent in
quiry in connection with tho government

Georgia and Tcnnessoo Read to pay the editors of
these Radical journals the income of their jour

A word toyoufBlonntvillo correspondent, Mr.
Snnpp, whoso letter appeared somo time since.
We naturally anticipated a little flouncing and
' gnashing of teeth," from the fact that it is char
acteristic of his school. We will now furnish the
facts connected with the late election, asrecontly
presented to the Legislature of the State, and
leave to the reading publio to decido as to the
truth of tho statements made in a former letter.
On tho first Monday in January last an election
was held in the county of Sullivan, for tho rati
fication or rejection of an act of tho Legislature,
entitled "an act to proride for the removal of tho
county seat of Sullivan county from Blountville to
Bristol, in Faid county, and for the establishment
of a special court nt Kingsport; approved Dec. 5,
1685;" tho result of which election showed a
majority of some 74 votes in favor of Blountville.
On an investigation of the poll books of the elec
tion, it was ascertained by the affidavits of citi
zens of the county, that in Blountville district
somo 78 illegal votes were cast in favor of tho
rejection of said act, or in favor of Blountville. In
the White district, adjoining tho Blountville dis
trict, (which we inadvertantly called Morris, in
our letter, on which Mr. S. laid so much stress),
somo 21 disloyal or illegal votes were cast in
favor of the rejection of said act, or in favor of
Blountville. In the Branstcttcr district some,
seven disloyal or illcgalVotcs wcro cast in favor
of tho rejection of said act, or in favor of Blount-'
ville I Among these illegal votes cast, in Blount
ville were those of men who had been officers in
tho rebel army, QSartcrmastera of the same, and
rebel ministers of the gospel, and preached and
prayed for the success of tho rebel government up
to the surrender of the armies t
In the Branstettcr district men were suffered ta
vote wh) hod been in the rebel service, and who
had been "pnnclert" or "VoMrrs," one of whom
had plundered the house of one of tho affiants, as
so stated bj'hini. When the computation was
made and the illegal votes stricken out, and tho
vote reduced to what tho late franchise law re
quired, the result exhibited a majority in favor of
the ratification of the act, or for Bristol and Kings-
port, by about forty-one votes I These are ucJt'
as drawn from tho poll-books of tha rancorous
and vituperative Snapp, and have been sworn to
and forwarded, with a memorial to the Legisla
ture, by moro than two hundred loyal voters of
theceunty. Private dispatches from Xashvillo
announce tho Jetting asidea of the illegal votes,
which holds lip the tnttpptna County Clerk in a
rather unenviable attitude before his constituents.
To claim that he could not prevent the issuing of
certificates of loyalty to those not entitled to them,
and that he was not responsible for the conduct of
his deputies, is a willful perversion of truth. To
defy the examination of his poll-books, as if to
obliterate ata single stroke the veracity of your
correspondent, and then to suffer such exposure
before tho Legislature of the Stite, is anything
butcomplimentary to the troubled official. Think
of itl Men who had preached and prayed op to
thetlose of the war for the success of the rebellion
Quartermasters and officers in their army cor
tame to be furnished with certificates ef
loyalty under the restrictions of the franchise law,
and to vote, tells the story of fraud base fraud,

of the Virginia amt Tennessee roau.
"6 This act shall be in force from its passage.!
This road (Kentucky, and Virginia) was char
tered in 1853, upon the three-fifth principle, and
and was Jet to centract, tho work commencing in
1857.vTho expense incurred by the State and
company, up to tho suspension of 'the contracts,
by direction of the Board of Public Works, be
cause of the State's inability to 'meet her,ratio of
the expenses, amounted to ($33,345) two hundred
and thirty-nine thousand three hundred and forty
five dollars, ($9,000) nine thousand dollar? pf which
was paia by the stockholders ($103,000) one hun
dred and three '.thousand dollars by the State,
leaving tKo State indebted to tho contractors to
the amount of ($4G,31j) forty-six thousand three
hundred and forty-five.dollars.
Twonty-four sections of this jpad have been
worked on and most of the. masonry completed.
which, in many instances, was very heavy. Con
tractors frho were engaged in constructing the
road arewilling to resume operations so soon as
the company undergoes an organization, which
will take placo soon.
Tho billgrantingachartcrforaroad from Cum
berland Gap via Moccasin Gap and Saltsville, in
tersecting the Virginia and Tennessee Road at
some point, west ofMarjpn. jind. east of Glade
Springs, is to bo constructed by privato capital
tho, State taking no interest in the enterprise.
There is no prospect of its success. The road from
this point is forty miles nearer than the Saltsvillo
route, with many advantages superior to it, not
only because of capital already invested and work
done on tho road, but fromiits superior location.
It is true that the country is, somewhat broken,
still it is distinguished for its fertility and its ag
ricultural enterprise, as well as for its flattering
mineral blossom, the latter, until recently, bos
attracted no particular attention. The pc'oplo.of
its locality, and adjacentcountry, areowake to the
importance ef its construction.
That accomplished gentleman and journalist.
Col. J. W. Page, now a wholesale commission
merchant of Cincinnati, formerly associated with
your journal, paid our town a visit last week. He
won many warm friends during his short stay by
his gentlemanly deportment. Noue know him
but to admire him. He is " a chip of the old

'The Appronchlnff International Cliotern
Coiircs.
The President has sent to each house of
Congress a message transmitting the corres
pondence between the Secretary of State
and the Minister of France, accredited to
this Government, and also other papers re
lative to the proposed International Con
ference at Constantinople, upon the subject
of cholera. Marquis de Montholon, under
date of November 15th last, writes that
every Power has adopted whether spon
taneously or to satisfy the "urgent desire of
public opinion arrangements which have
seemed to be of the most efficacy for guard
ing their territory against the invasion of
the disease; but experience has proved how
much these preventive measures adopted
in insulation and varying with localities
are difficult in harmonizing with the habi
tudes and wants of our epoch, impatient of
every hindrance that impedes the freedom
of commercial transactions. lie says he, is
inst motofl hv Af. Timiivn DeTj'IIuvH toi. at
tend the conference, at Constantinople, I of
men of science from various countries inter
estcdj'having, for its object, to seek out the
primeval causes of cholera: to determine
its principal points of departure; to study
its character and progress, and to propose
practical means for circumscribing and ex
tinguishing it in its origin. Tho Secretary
of State, in reply, promises to give the sub
ject attentive consideration, and, on Nov
ember 21, asks the opinions and suggestions
of Surgeon General Barnes. To this the
Surgeon General replies, suggesting that he
be empowered to designate two officers of
the medical stafTof the United States army,
as members of such committee. Under date
of Dec. 20, Sublime Porte assures Mr.
Morrison, representative at Constantinople,
of its) co-operation, and suggests that a meet
ing bo held in January or Febuary, and
that the execution of the measures agreed
upon be left to the several Governments
represented, and that Lalah FfTendi, Chief
Physician of the Imperial Court, and Dr.
Bartholette, now consul of Health, bo Tur
kish Envoys. A cordial welcome is promis
ed by the Courts, under , date of December
23. Mr. Morris writes that no date had
then been fixed definitely for tho assemblage.
Cotton Stcullnfr in the Sontli.
A New Orleans correspondent -of a Cin
cinnati piper thus refers to the advent into
that city of Messrs. Chandler and Watter-
son, who were sent South by the Treasury
Department to look after cotton frauds.
These remarks were substantially reiterated!
by one of the parties in this city a day or
two ago:
"A few days ago there arrived in this
city, Messrs. Chandler and Watterson, who
were sent by the Secretary of tlie Treasury
to examine ana report upon tlie alleged
cotton frauds of Government agents in this
section. These gentlemen have made hut a
partial investigation, and have reported to
tlie Treasury Department that it would re
quire a dozen Hercules to, perform the duty
assigned to tlibm; that if they had been in
structed to inquire if any Government agent
had abstained from cotton-stealing, their
mission would have been a brief and easy
one. Their report might have been cm-
braced in the few scriptural Vonb: "No, not
one." The extent of the peculations in this
line exceed any thing ever recorded in the
history of official corruption and robbery.
The Government cotton, which exceeded
one hundred millions of dollars in value,
has been swallowed up by jts own agents,
and it is confidently stated by those who
ought to know, that the compensation to
ofheers and agents, and other cxpouscs for
the agents of the Cotton Hunan, will exceed
tho amount received from tlie sales of all
cotton received by the Government. Some
of the most prominent Federal officers have
been deeiilv implicated in these frandes. In
Mobile one of them was fined $90,000 and
imprisoned until he could pay the fane: he
threatened to peach on his confederates, if
thcr did not pay up and get him released.
A pony purse was made up for this purpose,
the fine was paid and the rogue released;
but it was soon discovered that the largest
contributor to pay this fine was the Collec
tor of the port, a sufiering Union Martyr,
named Marlegut, who paid $40,000 on this
account. Marlegut was removed; but this
was all. lie has managed to place a half
a million in a safe place."
The New Yoiuc Post on the Fkexd-

to take in regard to the future condition of
freedmen, beyond tho simple act of enforcing
their rights as citizens, their best "protectors
in the end will be found to be the Statesin

finite mischief by teaching them to look to
the Goyeraffient for support, and not to
