large ami enthiuiaMic, embracing the mtim
of some of the ah)t and heat known citi
zens of the State, and the trueet friends of
tlio Union during the. war. That it repre
sented the soldiery a well a the citizens, it
is mifficient to state that it was participated
in by Gen. Alex. McDowkm. ircCooic,
Col. L. A. ITarrw, tite present Mayor of
Cincinnati, Cel. L. D. CamtokUi and other
distinguished aoklMra of the rar. Patriotic
reeolutionH were adopted, and delegates ap
pointed from the State at large, and from
the several oongresntonal dirtricU. One of
the chief features of tle occasion was the
reading of a letter frem the able ami
venerable TitoKAB Ewixc, wltose name

of hia day ami generation. He lias passed
the epoch of life's passion and ambition, and
only hope that lie may lie down to hi final
rest in the soil of a land he has done so
much to build up, restored alike in its terri
torial and coMttitntional integrity. He looks
upon the tendencies of packing event) as full
of mischief, if mvt f absolute destruction

course of the late war, and traces the duties
which its close devolves uion the American
people with great force ami breadth. He
combines so much abitttywith so much dts

Tlie proceedings of the "Colored Conren
lion" in session in lh city the present week,
liave developed antagonisms among tbe
members, worthy of some reflection. The
design ef the Convention, at formally an
nounced to the flavor of the city was,
"to iMiberitt; otflke following mhjeeta
"Agriculture, Slanuiaoturefv Mining and
"Education, and to adopt some plan by
"which these important branches of industry
"and elevation may be more etTeetually pros
"eouted by us as a people'." They also asked
the approbation of the city authorities, and
asked protection if it should become neces
sary. Mayor Brown expressed the univer
sal sentiment of the white people of this
city, when in response he said : "I would
state that meetings or conventions with sue!
objects in view, meet with my thorough ap
probation, and that all requisite aid and
protection, if necessarr. tendintr to the suc
cessful prosecution of such worthy aims,
will be cheerfully extended at any time."
Scarcely had the Convention got througl:
with the preliminaries of organization, when
it became evident that evil influences had
been brought to bear upon members to defeat
the laudable ends which the Convention was
framed to promote, and to change its char
acter and designee from "prosecuting more
effectually the important branches of indus
try and elevation" named, to one of politi
eel purposes and objeetn. After a somewhat
protracted struggle the Convention was over
thrown, and the body converted into au
"Equal Kights League." Thus the objects
stated, in which the negroes are infinitely
more concerned than anything else for the
present, were ignored, and their efforts di
rected to the acquisition of social and politi
oal equality T with the whites. Tho malign
influences and suggestions which brought
about this staU of things, it is now pretty
well known, did not originate with the ne
groes themselves, but from pretended vhUe
Having no other than the kindest feelings
for the colored race we venture two or three
brief suggestions, which may be serviceable
to them especially to that reflecting class,
the existence of which was demonstrated by
the sound views displayed by some members
of the Convention:
1st. They have equality with tho white
man in the right to Die pursuit of happiness
to labor in any trade or calling they may
select to protection from the laws of the
land to worship God according to tho dic
tates of conscience to acquire and hold pro
perty and to improve and elevate thorn-
selves by education, industry and virtuous
merit. This is a vast advance upon their
past condition and if these advantages arc
properly and discreetly used, may lead to a
future of great utility and benefit to them
selves and to society at large. The Convcn-
on was on the right road, and when it left
t, it entered a much more difficult and la
2nd. Any other equality, under existing
circumstances, is practically impossible; and
any effort to force it will inevitably engender
antagonisms that must retard instead of ad
vance the ends aimed at by the blacks and
prove unfortunate to both races.
3rd. Intelligence, property not great
wealth, hut a comfortable competency and
virtue, give power in all enlightened com
munities. These should be the first object8
of desire, and most early sought after by the
freed people. The first comes through edu
cation tho second through industry and
economy and tho third through the culti
vation of good and frowning upon evil.
These must precede the true elevation
of the negro ; and every effort and exertion,
and every moment of time taken from them
and devoted to politics, which is another
name to him for idleness, is so much thrown
in the road of his progress.

On our first page is published a speech
from Tiiardkus Stevens the last hut not
the least significant which ho delivered to
the House of Representatives, during the
session just closed. Regarding Stevens as
tho impersonation of radicalism, having
less legal knowledge than TftOMBUi.i. or
Howard, loss pedantry or polish than
Sumnrr, less dignity than Fbssenuen, loss
arrant deiuagogucry than Colfax, "Wash-
burne, Kklxvy. and others of his Radical
brethren on the floor of tho House, but pos
sessed of a more robust intellect than cither
nf them, and a positiveness and force of
character which none of his associates can
lay claim to, and licing by all odds the
ablest and boldest knavo of them all, we
thought it proper to give to our readers, in
full, this ebullition of the matured malig
nity and folly of tho Congressional Radical
clique. Wc do not propose to review it, for
it speaks plainly. Its author docs not deal
in ambiguous language. . He needs no com
mentator to explain or interpret. He strikes
straight on for the degradation of the white
population, and tho elevation of the black
race in the Southern States. He would ro
oonstruet tho Union by abolishing the
titles to property held by a majority
of the whites in eleven States, and declaring
them investedby gift to the black, and by pur
chase at Government sale, to tho white who
maypurchasc; by depriving tho native whites
of those Stated of political rights, and en
dowing the blacks and the new-coming
white from the Northern States with
tho control of their civil government ;
and by reducing States from the high posi
tion of equal component part of the Federal
Government io mere creatures and depend
encies on tho will of a majority of Congress.
This last speech does not contain all these
odious features, but the utterances of Ste
vens, from December, 1865 to August
1866, contains all this and more,
and taken together they afford a true
exposition of the purposes of radical
ism. The speech we refer to completes the
work, and we give it that our readers may
know in all it horrid length and breadth
from the master-mind of the revolutionary
party wJmt they may cxjiect, if tho con
servatism of the country is not able to res
cue the control of the law-making power
from its hands.

An apology is, perhaps, due our readers
for the extent of space wc give to the de
fence of the Louisiana Convention by Gov.
Wells. It is the weakest document we
have ever road emanating from a gentle
man occupying a station of such distinction.
He fails to state a single material point in
behalf of the Convention, or to make ono
against his adversaries. He docs not specify
a single particular fact essential to a proper
comprehension of the matter, nor one to fix
guilt upon tho civil authorities or people of
New Orleans. His allegations arc all gen
eral, and may be found more clearly and
elegantly stated any morning in all the
Radical organs of the country and are as
applicable to the people of cither of the
other Southern States as to those of Louisi--ana.

A friend writing us from upper East Ten
nessee says :
The conviction is forcing itself upon tho
people of this part of the State, that the
great object of the Radical leaders in Con
uress and in the State, is immediate neoro
iufrage, and, as faras possible, negro equality,
social as wcu as poimcai. iuany were siow
to believe this. But the speech of Mr.
Fletcher in Nashville on the 2Sth ult., in
which he so intimately associates the white
and black Unionists, has given cause to be
lieve that the Union which the Radicals de
sire and are laboring for, is not the Consti
tutional Union of our fathers, hut a violent
and enforced union of the two races. This
is repulsive to this people. The action of
the late negro convention at Knoxvillc, ap
pointing negro delegates to attend the
Southern Loyal Convention to assemble at
Philadelphia in September, there to mingle
and deliberate with white men, excite de
rision and disgust, and discloses the true ob
ject of radicalism. They find that the Presi
dent, there own true and tried Andy John
son, stands the firm opponent of these vio
lent innovations, and is now laboring to
protect and shield them from the abrupt
ami revolutionary plans of the Radicals in
this matter, which must essentially chango
or destroy the Government, if sueeesaful.
"Under these considerations, I feel assured
that the great mass of the voters of East
Tennessee will array themselves, in all fu
ture elections, under the banner of the Con
servative Union party, whose standard is in
the hands of Andrew Johnson, whose
colors never yet trailed in the dust through
all the conflicts of the last, thirty years. An
eminent member of the Bar, who enjoys an
extensive practice in the large Circuit of

claimeu Although I had been persecuted
and driven from mv home bv thn rnll
authorities, I suppressed all feeling1 of rancor
so natural to the human breast under the
circumstances. In the belief that a majority
had been seduced from their allegiance to
the old flag by the wiles of the artful demn.
gogucs who brought on the rebellion, I de
termine! to try the effect of-kindness and
conciliation in winning them back to their
first love. I addressed them a proclamation
congratulating them on their restoration to
the protection of a government of law and
order, and declaring that as far as I was con
cerned I wa3 willing to forget tho past. I
bemied them to submit cheerfully and unre
servedly to the new order of things, and as
sured them that although a Slate government
had been organized, yet I was anxious that.i

appointed men recommended bv them tn
fill the offices in the several parishes. I
signed their applications to the President of
the United States for special pardon. I
persisted in my course of conciliation, not
withstanding the warnings and remon
strances of men who believed that my policy
would be unavailing in accomplishing the
purpose intended, and who predicted that at
the very first election, these men, in every
parish whero they held the power, would
proscribe every man from ofiico who had not
been in the rebel army, and foucrht for tho
xnesc predictions have been realized to
le letter, at every subsequent election, with
io exception of my own case and it is
well known, for it was publicly avowed, that
i was put at me head ol their ticket simnlv
because it was thought I could be useful in
securing a representation of the State in
Congress. It is further well known that the
platform reported by the committee appoint
ed for that purpose to the Democratic Con
vention held in this city, was a reiteration of
the doctrine of the right of secession, and it
was only through the exertions of a few of
the more cautious and politic of the party
that this platform was made to assume the
form in which it was adopted,
At the snmo Convention a well known
cttizen and life Democrat was publicly cen
sured by resolution, because in a speech de
livered before that body, he said that seces
sion was worse than a crime it was a blun
der. Notwithstanding my nomination by the
Democratic party, anothcr'candidate was put
in the field in opposition to mc, who had of
ficiated as Governor under the rebel rule,
and who, had he been in tho country and
signified, his. jisgcnt, ' I have no doubt would
have been overwhelmingly elected.
When members of the Legislature met in
extra session in the month of November,
18C5, convened by me for the purpose of
raising money to restore tho broken levees,
and to take measurca to redeem the credit of
the State, I found they were more intent on
calling a convention to iitauge the Constitu
tion of ISO 1, than to promote the material
interests of the people. Their chief objection
to that instrument was the character of the
men who framed it, and the abolition there
by of slavery.
Having failed at the extra session to pass
a bill calling a Convention, the attempt was
renowed at the regular session held in the
month of January, and more than half of the
time of that body was spent in discussing
that question. Finally a committee was
sent to Washington to consult the President,
and the Legislature only abandoned the
measure through his advice. I considered
a Constitution inexpedient, and for that rea
son opposed it. I had learned enough of
the real sentiment of the people to convince
me that if a new Constitution was made, it
would be less in harmony with the views of
the President and Congress than the Consti
tution of 1SC4, the result of which would be
to lessen the chances for the admission of
our Representatives. I urged these views on
the members of both Houses of the Legisla
ture, but they had no effect with the ma
i deprecated the city and parocuai elec
tions, for the reason that I feared the result,
because of the character of the men that

of public sentiment to convince me that
none but those who had served in the Con
federate army and who had gone in tho Con
federate lines would be elected to office, I
foresaw, that such a -result would be justly re
garded by' the people of the loyal States as
showing a defiant spirit ami as still glorying
in a cause .that liad beoa crushed by them
with such fearful loss of life and expenditure
With numerous and repeated evidences of
the continuing of an intolerant and rebel

it matter of surprise that I should pause and
the charges that have been made, that the
Convention would not have represented the
whole, and that it Was Intended tnhnnnplrn.l
Every parish would have been represented,
about one-half having elected their delefratea

In keeping with their unrelentimr policy
to maintain the power of the State in their
own hands exclusively, they opposed the

needed no better monitor than their own

scriptive conduct they had forfeited all
claims to further liberality from the origi
