McGavock, as a cemetery for the Confederate dead, who fell in the nanguinary and ever memorable bat tle near that place, on the 29th day of Novcnllier, 1804. The beauty of the con ception, nji shown in tho arrangement and design, is only equaled by tho elevated cen timent and generosity of spirit which prompted Col. McGnvock to the work in which, with the co-operation of others, lid is' so zealously engaged. For the special interest of thomany friends at n distance who arc unacquainted with the immediate country in which this cemetery in located, we will state that the County of Williamson is nimnr-iassod in fertility of soil and benutifiil landscape by any in Mid dle Tennessee, and the private grounds of Col. McGnvock are the most attractive of any part of this highly favored county. Distanced about onc milc from the village of Franklin, this cemetery, when completed, will afford a pleasant drive or walk from thai place to the liuiuhcrluxH persons who through yearn to coim will seek as pilgrim shrines these grave of departed heroes, kindred and friends; who, in defense of what tiny- anil wo regarded as the cause of liberty, died as nobly as ever men died, and "vlieae nntiiuH have Iipoh perpetuated in his tory and cherijihed in song. Passing from tho town in a southeasterly direction, the road lend through a largo aiid beautiful grove of stately trees, fit sentinels to the approach 'of this sacred place. The cemetery' of the Confederate dead adjoins the privalc burial grounds of the resident family, mid is within a short distance of the large and handsome mansion of the pro prietor of the place. Intlond of separate graves, they are mar shalled in the order somewhat of platoons, fifU'im in wch row, -with their respective head and foot boards nicely finished amllet terod. Theso ravte extend for some distance in succession on cither hand, with an avenue between of sufficient width to afford a con venient walk or drive. The interments have boen so arranged as to bring the re spective dead of each State together, thereby heightening the interest of the general plan, m woll as adding io the convenience of those who may come in search of the precise spot where re-iose the remains of somo FpecinI object of affection. Between the ground of the dead of the different States, squares have been reserved for monumental or such other 'purposes as kindred and friends it some future time may consider appropriate in commemorating their virtues, and in at testing tho respect that is duo their memory. The whole is to Ikj handsomely ornamented with evergreens and flowers and placed un der a suitable enclosure. The work'of re-inlonnont, though far ad vanced, is not completed. Upwards of haven hundred have beenemoved. Of this number seventy-one were from Arkansas ninety-two from Texas one hundred and twenty-nino from Missouri one hundred and sixty-six from Tennessee and two hun dred and forty from Mississippi. In the prosecution of this workOol. McGavock has had the valuable assistance of Mr. G. AV. Ccppin and Mr. Robert Sloan, who have given it their constant attention, and the penontl oo-Qporation of the citizens of Franklin, and of many friends of the noble dead in several of the other States. Tin: 1'iir.si in: vrs mm:i:ch. The President's niicech as ro-iortix" by telegraph Is evidently incomplete, a. the grunt question of Congressional obstruction to the completion of restoration is left un finished. When Axdkew Johnson makes up his mind to deliver one of his bold, blunt, twrue.tt, and incisive speeches to the people, he does not paue in mid-air, and this wan his mood on Tuesday. It will be seen that he again arraigns the Radical leaden as plot ter against the integrity of the Union, and charges them with having brought the coun try to a crisis equally as dangerous as that which the armies of tho Union rescued it from ; and that he assert the right of rep resentation in Congress as cardinal, and absolutely necessary to the preservation of the government. Doubtless, thissjcech will make "Radical Home howl again, and swell the current of abuse which has been directed against him, but "nothing he'll reck," if the people, heed his voice, and yield him support in the work before bun. "SXJSTS ' TIOXS. OilGAXIZA? The National Intelligencer which has an" historical right to speak to and for the men of this country who hold conservative poli tical views, and whose present wise and able conduct, (though the learning and intellect of .Gams and Seaton no longer preside over its columns,) gives it an exten sive and deserved influence. im'ong the sup porters of the Constitution and the Union, has recently published several articles in regard to the organization and naming of the party which at present support, the Presi dent, and adheres a the groundwork of its Klitical faith, to the Constitution, and the teachings of theauges who framed, and the great worthies of a later period who have illustrated its principles. .It has also several able correspondents who have written forci ble and ingenious papers advocating the propriety of such an organization, and the 'early adoption of a name descriptive of the principles held, and applicable to the ob jects in view. The Intelligencer, as well as its commentators upon this subject, have not yet developed the details, nor do they seem to agree in the selec tion of a name, though they lay great stress upon the latter. They concur in thinking that "Whig" is obsolete and inex pressivethat "Republican" is defiled by the recent and present prostitution of it by the Radicals and revolutionists that "Dem ocrat'' has served a sufficient use, and would be too snggestivc of States-rights and the evils which are held to have had their or igin in that doctrine. They have discussed " Constitutional," but exceptions to this may be found in the number of its syllables and its lack of smoothness and euphony, and for the better reason also, that such a title would seem to assume that all who are not of the party so designated are opposed to the Con stitution. " Union" has also been proposed, but that is liable to a like objection, and has already been made the catchword and cloak of so much duplicity and rascality, that it would damn any party that might adopt it, no matter how pure and patriotic it should prove itself to be. Upon the whole, the matter of naming the party is a difficult business, and one, we think, not likely to be satisfactorily accomplished. Jleing of the party whose organization and nomenclature is the subject of inquiry, we will take the liberty of saying that such a discussion is premature, if not unadvisable at any time. It lias been often said, but truly, that parties in a popular Government are necessary and proper that the rivalry in maintaining their creeds serves to prevent the long prev alence of errors, and restrain the abuses which one is likely to be guilty of, if it were able to enjoy unlimited power or to escape the watchfulness and' criticisms of its oppo nents. It might be added with equal truth, that parties in a Government like ours, arc inevitable--that the conflict of opinion on matters of principle as well as expediency which is certain to exist where many minds nrc directed to one subject, will as certainly give rise to organizations looking to tho suc cessful assertion of views which may be held by those who may happen to coincide. We take it that parties, in the proper and useful sense, arise spontaneously and naturally, and that when thus formed, the necessary cohe rency and concert of action among those who compose them will develop itself, and do so successfully, if the creed they avow be true and just, and such as to command popular approval. The organization, except that subordinate part which is mainly always the work of candidates, and which always finds plenty of hands to do it, perfects itself; and a party which is deficient in these elements the principles and elementary truths of a sound political economy, and measures for the wise and safe application of them to the management of the affairs of State, will find all merely artificial attempts at organization futile. We consequent ly distrust schemes for the construction of parties. So made, they are short-lived, and as apt as otherwise to meet their early fate from the corruption which attends them in their very inception. It is the true policy to allow the great conservative sentiment of this countrv which the course of events is silently but surely evolving, if this people be not given over to that madness which precedes perdition, to continue the work of accretion. It will, in due time, form around itself the party which is to succeed to all the good which has been in all the parties of this country since the " era of good feeling" tinder Mr. Monrok. Any attempts to man age and direct this movement to what might appear to bo partizou iimw, will weaken its moral power, and tend to thwart the great object of overthrowing the extremism which now misrules the nation. This, view concerning what is called "or ganization," npplies with equal force to names. Names are indeed things, and have their influence. Rut we think this coming party will most properly furnish its own name. A trivial incident may suggest it, but the rarely erring mother-wit of the people will secure its adoption, though perhaps rigid criticism may be tempted to reject it. or at least reran! it as inappropriate. The historical par ty titles of whig and lory in Great Britain have not much significance in them selves, but they have endured and outlived more artistically constructed and accurate ly descriptive name, and they were the re suit of circumstance occurring in the move ments of men and opinions at the time, and not of deliberate selection. The name should be an outgrowth of the leading senti timent orprinciploofthe party when it is fully matured, and before the canvass if jnipiilar judgment. Thus acquired, it will be more likely to possess all that is desirable in a name brevity, expression, and point, than if a college of linguists and a commit tee of political seers were to combine their labors in concocting one. Let the leaders of conservative opinion educate the popular mind up to the standard of patriotic duty required to extricate the na tion, from the troubles which have succeeded tho jvar, and the toils vhich tho destructive and revolutionary party, now unhappily in the ascendant, are laying; and endeavor to re inculcate the maxims of political wisdom which were the corner stones of the faith of our ancestors, and a party fully-formed will loan, like Minerva fully-armed from the brain of .love, from the great and ever true heart of the American people, which will Ite invincible in its strength, ami defined to do a work which will make it admired of men as lon as Republican institutions are appreciated, or the love of well-regulated liberty shall survive. Tin: Hattox Frxi Association. We especially direct the attention of our readers to the remarks and circular upon thi subject winch we print in another column. Gen. Hattox left ample means, we understand, to pay his own debts ;. but by reason of his gen erosity and kindliness, became security for considerable sums. Thei-e, unfortunately, have como against his estate in sufficient amount to sweep away all that is left for the economical support of his wife and children. It is proposed by voluntary contributions from his friends, those who knew him as the poor ploughboy, . tho patient teacher, the able and faithful lawyer, the consciencious legislator, and the intrepid but modest sol dier, to relieve his family precious to him as his country was from the absolute want that threatens them. There should be no difficulty or delay in the matter; for who that incK-RonmtT, Hattox, would not di vide with his wife and children Uio bread of a scanty store, or out of abundance give cheerfully? PAKTY ' "JVSCAT IS A QTTORTJ.X T ' " ' The N. Y. Jbunial of Commerce throws out the following suggestion on this subject : "What is two-thirds of "tho Ilonro of Repre sentatives or of the Senato? The proclamation cf the President has declared the pacification of various States. Those States have not seceded from the Union, because they could not, either legally or by forcible resolution. Are the Sen ators and Representatives of those States to be counted in considering what is tho IIon;oV They have been elected, but their seats aro refused .hem. Can a majority in Congress exclude mem bers elected, and by so doing reduce the number forming Ikt House, so that a quorum shall consist of a majority only of thosa admitted to seats, and two-thirds shall bo counted only as of those who aro in their seats !" The same principle governs ia the State Legislatures. And it may be seriously questioned whether a body consisting, either in the National or State Legislatures, of a le9a number of representatives or members than the organic laws designate is, in any sense a lawful body, or capable of having a quorum. Beyond doubt, the Congress of the United States was designed to embrace memlers or representatives from all the States composing the Union. At the outset, the fraruers of the present government pro vided that it should not go into operation until nine of the original thirteen States had adopted the covenant; and then it could not proceed to bind the people by any legis lative act until all of the nine States were represented in Congress. If one of the States after ratification had changed its mind, and refused to send delegates to Congress, it is very questionable whether the Government could or would have been inaugurated. In several matters that it was foreseen might arise, it was provided in the fundamental compact, that in such cases the States should vote as States, and not by the ordinary mode of per capita representation. If a State were not represented at all, but for reasons satis factory to its people, refused to have any thing to do with Congress or the Govern ment, how could it have been counted in the Union at the beginning?' The provision was that nine States should compose the Union, and any less1 number was insufficient. The principle is the same, though circum stances change. So it is in Suites, composed of a given number of counties. The organic law fixes a rateable proportion of representation among the counties composing it. These counties make the State, and their repre sentatives compose the law-making power, called a Legislature or General Assembly or other name. The system of dividing States intq counties was introduced into this country before the Revolution ary AVar, and has not been departed from. If from passion or any other cause a part of the represcntativee under take to assume and declare certain counties without representation, or not entitled to re presentation which is practically the same thing we hive the anomaly of a portion of the people of the commonwealth excluded from the privileges of a voice in the enact ment of laws by which their conduct is to be governed. Nothing could possibly bo in more direct conflict with the elementary rights, opinions and traditions of a republi' can people, or of a government founded on the equal rights of all the lawful citizens of the country. Such action becomes a usur pation, and if continued, subverts the origi rial foundations of government, and will in evitably resultin a mobocracy, and oligarchy, or eventually in an absolute despotism. Such are the tendencies and logical consequence)) of the present action of Congress with re ference to the Southern States, and of the Legislature of this State in reference to about one-fourtk of its counties. inese views are sustained by ttie very meaning and force of the word quorum. It is a part of an entirety literally signi tying vliom" and prc-supposes a com plete and ascertained body of (individuals. It was adopted to designate what number of an established assembly might lawfully transact business in the absence of the rest the extent and number of that body hav ing been previously defined and stated by the law of its creation. In the case of the Union, the Constitution defines what shall constitute Congress in the State the like instrument ascertains what shall be a Leg' Islaturc or General Assembly. In the one case, all the States are included; in tho other, all the counties. If any of the States in the first, or any of the comities in the second instance are excluded contrary to tho wishes and and protestations of such States or counties, it is an usurpation to that extent, unauthorized and unjustifiable on any of the princijdes upon which this government rests.

Knr what havu we passed through the tried or- ilenl? It wns to Drove tho principle that no State had tho power to break up the Government, It was to put down the rebellion. The rebellion 7m been put down, ami tchatar f H'u it to ilr tmu the Stiitrt.'i Verilu never! For what havo all these lives tecu sacrificed, and all this treasure expended? Was it lor the purpose oi destroying the States? No I It was for thu purpose of pre serving the union of tho States. That is what we havo been contending for, and to establish the fact that thuiiatioii can lilt itself above and be yond internal wars and treason, aud establish a Inline. When tho rebellion in Massachusetts was put down, did that put Massachusetts out ot the Union and dc-troy the State ? W hen the rebel lion in 1'eunsj lvania was put down, did that des troy tho State und put it out of tho Union ? So, when tho recent en:at rebellion was put down. nml llm I'mnlitntimi nnd laws of the countrv res tored, tho States engaged in the rebellion being t.-.l n...l l.ofl.M.titnt:nn.. knnwlcdged in them, they staud in the Union; under the Constitution, as part of the glorious and bright galaxy ot States. I l,ouci encers.j In parsing through this ordeal, what has been done in tlioin under the direction of my lamented predecessor ? W'o commenced tho work nf repair. Wo succeeded, before I came hero, in restoring the relations which bad existed between Tennes see and the rest of tho Union with one exception, and that was the relation of representation. . I cmiio to Washington, and under extraordinary circumstances succeeded to tho Presidential chair. The Congress of the United States had adjourned without prescribing any plan. 1 then proceeded, as I had done in my own Stale, in tho reconstruc tion of the Government, to restore the other StaUw. How did wo begin. Wo fonnd thatiho people had nd courts, and wo said to the Judges. I)itrift Attorneys and .Marshals. "Go down and hold your citrts. Tho people need the tribunals ot justice opened. Was there any wrong in that? The courts wero opened. What else 7 We looked out and saw that tho people down thero had no mails. They had been interrupted and cut offjiy the operation oftho rebellion. Wo said to the Postmaster Gen eral let tho people have facilities for mails, and let them again begin to understand what wo all feel and think, that wo arc ono people. Wo looked outngain, and saw that thero was a hloekado that the customhouses were all closed. Via said, open the doors of the customhouses, and remove tho blockade. I,ct tne pursuits ot pcaco f;o on. It was done. Wo thus traveled on, step step, opening customhouses, appointing col lectors, and establishing mail facilities, and re storingnll railroads that had been interrupted by rebellion. Was thero anything undertaken to be done hero that was not authorized by the Consti tution, that was not justified by strict necessity of thne.'ise. that has not been clearly consistent with the Constitution and with tho generous spirit of our Government? IClieors.J What remained to be done? One other thing remained, to show the civilized world that we had passed successfully through the tried ordeal ofour national existence, and proved that our Govern ment was popular. A great principle was to bo restored, whieli was established in our revolution, when .our fathers wero contending against tho power of Great Britain. What was one of the principal caunes of their cpinplaint? Itwas. that they were denied representation, and thoy com- rrheer.s.l Ono of the crcat principles laid down by uaineu (l uiiuuuu ivuuuui. scfut-rtiiiiitiiuii. our fathers, anil which tired their hearts was, that there should bo no taxation without representa tion. How, then, docs tho matter stand? ho has been usurping power? Who has been defeating the operation of tho Constitution? and what now reiuaius to bo done to complete tho restoration of these Stains to all their former relations under the I'VdcrsJ Government, and to finish the groat ordeal through which we have been passing. It is to admit representation. IChecrs.l When wo say admit represcntiou, what do wo mean? Wo mean reprcscntatitn in tlio constitutional and law-abid inn sense which was understood at tho bediming of tho Gomrnmsnt, The Constitution declares In express icrms that each House, the Senato and lower House of Jtcp resentativa", each utting for itself, shall be tho judge ol the returns oi mo cieciion ami nuaiuican tions ot its own members, it is loreacu nouse io settle that question under the Constitution nnd under the solemn sanction of an oath; and can wo liclievo that either House would admit any member into its body to participate in tho legis lation f thneniinlrv who is not nualificd? Thcv have power not the two Houses but ouo House loritfcJf. ... T ho Constitution turtlicr declares mat no Maio shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the fcen nto of tho t'nitcd states without its consent. Where da we fitjind? All to it is needed to hnish the great work of restoration, is for th two Houses nunnttivelv to decide, the ouestion. Ob, but some ono will fy, a trajtor might jwmo in. the answer to that is. each House must ba the;udgeof it: aivl it a traitor presents hnnseii, l cannot help it. The Jlouso knows that ho is a traitor. lApplausc. . If he is a traitor, can they not kick Inn, out ' doors and send him back, saying to tho people who sent him. "You must scud us a loyal man." Cheers. Is there any difficulty about that? Cri of "No. no," and cheers. 1 If a traitor pre sents himself to cither House, cannot that Houio sav to him. "No, you cannot bo admitted into this bo'dy. Go back; we will not deny your people tbe right of representation, but they must send a loy al representative." Cheers. THE CUBAN NI'ttllOEN. Jf ijlhle Demoralization among the Blacks Tbe .Save Trade Still Active Queer Stories About tbe Inteutwm of the American Government, Ac.. Ac, From the New York Wc;ld Santiago in: Cvvx, April I have hail wild trip nmune the coffee and fiuear estates of the interior, and have iipet? jjritji my own eyes, face to face, the lowest type of liumanitv I have ever encountered. I 'jad not before seen anything to brutal, aud enC than brute-like, oh the mas of ne- grocii fin the more retireu Luban estates. There sre. within twenty miles of this curi ous old C'ity .of J lills, three estates in one neighborhood, nuuilwring among their in habitant over a thousand slaves above twelve yeans of age, in wbldu cot a fourth K-iri nf thorn have the faintest fense of anv Xher religion than devil-worship. Thejr are hi iotejlect three degrees abovcthe beais of the lipid. They, or their immediate par ent, were brought from Africa. Many of theui have been landed Uj Cuba within three veam certainly perhaps within one; for the evidence tfiat the African sIavp trade is still active on the Cuban coast stares ont in the face on every aide. Peculiar cjrcun stances (one of them an implied pledge that mine was a visit of pertonal interest, and not for mischief making) opened tome afield winch few are permitted to enter, anu, one truth to say, I have no desire to revisit. The last month has taught rae enough about this class of negroes. J had present two interpreters, who had the vcv to the character of the Africans. Oue fjf .tU? was the parisTi priest, the other an African e&mcipado of Mohammedan pa rentage, and a man cf more mind than any other pure negro on either of these large estates. Yet flits' 'ram seriously assured me that he 'did not beicvp the jyild African had souls.' Some 01 their ciiliren le&rn that there is a God, and that brings .tem a little bit of a tool (alma pt guenital) and fiat baby-soul of their grow when they nd out ili's as large aj an egg, and ran bo seen by tho angels whcn 'ilTis called to judgment. I asked the padre what he thought of the plan of giving these people the right and the power of electing the men who were to rule the whites and their property. lie shook his head mournfully and said that the his tory f,tIie Spanish-American republics proved that wherever an unprepared race had obtained the control of any country, anarchy, decadence, and mutual butcheries had been the invariable result. Thev begin by robbing and expelling the whites to get at their property if they do not slaughter on the spot. Thus the superior classes event ually fade out, and when that prey is ex hausted, ihe dark-blocds turn upon each other. "That," said he, "has been and is the history of the American continent, with the exception of Brazil and the United State, and it will be thehbtory of Cuba, if the Washington GiLinet carries out itsintention vf driving the white race out of the Antilles." I emphasize the last sentence, for I know that this opinion is spreading through all the better classes, as well as among the ne groes, in all these islands, and it is likely to produce immense mischief. lliepresi of your great commercial cities ought to nip the error while there is yet time. The real Africans are too stupid to care about anything, but the free blacks, and especially those who can read a little, are imbued with the idea that the nesroes, anu noiiung dui me negroes, are the alworo ? 11,. 1. ... rt ing care anu ueiignt 01 tne American uov ...... mi n -m . . ernmeni. ine paure anu a mulatto over seer were the first to inform me of the visit of Secretary Seward to St. Domingo. This overeeer is a free man of some education and he said confidentially that "the Head General of my country had come down to these seas to advise all the white men to leave Cuba and St. Domingo as soon as they could.'-" 'I did not contradict him directly, as 1 wanted to hear liiift out, and hear him to the end; but I could not drain more out of lurn than that lie and his class were con vincea mat our government was very seri ously at work to clear the Antilles of the white race. I have in the last few weeks touched this question with dozens of persons of a far higher gratle than tins mulatto overseer, and they all seem to regard it as a fixet principle of American policy to make over the West indies to the blacks. To dismiss nine-tenths of their capital would be to de stroy the productive capabilities of these is lands, and such a purpose cannot find favor with the American merchants. Spain de clares that Cuba must be African or Spanish, and the highest authorities of this island claim Mr. Seward as their "sincere and en lightened ally f but I do not see why the rights and interests of the whites may not be respected, while the blacks are encouraged in the line of freedom and progress as fast and as completely as their actual condition will warrant. I will not believe that any statesman would wish to annihilate produc tion in the Antilles by Africanizing such precious producers. Cuba. I,F.(JISI,ATIVK SUMJIAKY. Senate. TuunsDAV. April 19.
