SB.VDAT, OCTOBER 7. 1S00- '
OX THE f , . . j , . i
Some days since we paWUhed certain
questions which were propounded to ilewre.
Fiuzihr, HmsEKLii and Ixmas, on the
negro suffrage'! question, requesting an ex-,
pression from them as to what course thejr,
as members of the Legislature, would pur
sue, if that body should attempt .td enfran
chise the negro in Tennessee. The. reply of
Speaker Hbiskem, and Senator Frazikk
will be found annexed. ,
KSOXVIBI.E, Sept. 25, 18GG. Messr.
Wm. P. Citiwr, F. H.JBorais, and otfi
era: In a recent number of the Kuoxville
Commercial you ask mycolleagucs, SenaWr
Fbazieb and BoprescnjitiTe Inmax and
mynolf, if we'are in' favor of investing the
adult negro population of the State of Ten
nessee with thferight of suffrage?" and 2d,
"Should your Legislature Te reconvened,
will jot vofe for any resolution, bill or act
conferring the right of suffrage upon the
- hegro In the State.of Tennessee?"
I believe It to be the ditty of a represent!
live respectfully to consider and candidlkr
reply to any question that his constituent! , ,
or anr.rwrfion of flxara, may Rublfd? pro
pound to him in regard to any matter of
public interest, whether he differs or agrees
with them upon it, and when a majority of
those whom lie represents instructs him to'
vote for a specified act or bill that is to be
introduced into the Legislature, I believe It
to be his duty to so vote if he can consist
ently do so olber,wTse;he ought to resign.
I therefore, very dieorMly, proceed to reply
to your interrogatories :
So much has already been Add and writ
ten on the subject of conferring this right
upon the negro, that! conceive it to bo ue
less to attempt an elaborate answer, fofr,
though I might, without arty great eflbrt.
give many reasons why the negro should
not have the right to receive that privilege,
I doubt if I Could advance a single idea
which you have not all seen and heard a
hundred times before, and perhaps raucji
better and more forcibly said than I could
express it. I hope, therefore, gentlemen,
you will be content with a very laconic
answer : then, I am decidedly opposed to
"inverting the adult negro population" with
the right of suffrage j and it ut any time,
while I have the honor to serve as your re
presentative, any "resolution, bill or aet
conferring" t'ot right upon that class of
our population, should be presented for the
action of the Legislature, I will most cer
tainly vole against it, and Use every mearis
in wywver, consistent with the right and
duty of a legislator, to prevent its passage.
KNOVVILI.E, Sept. 25, 18GG. Messrs. Wm.
Ckiitiw, and others: If it is true
that no free ''government can stand unless
founded upon the intelligence of the people,
what will bo the effect upon our Govern
ment if wo suddenly and without any prepa
ration raise to tin) dignity of electors this
overwhelming man of ignorant beings, who
by their numbers May be able to control the
State? It will, in effect, be turning the State
over into the hanta of the lowest and moft
degraded class, who will, in their turn, be
swayed and controlled by artful and design
ing demagogues who are to bo the tyrants of
both races. . It is well- known to every man
of any observation, that the negroes in this
State are incapable ofcontrolling themselves. !
They havojuslbt-eo turned loose upon their
own resources, after having been for centu
ries controlled and governed by others. They
aro wholly unprepared to orercise this priv
ilege intelligently. There arc some excep
tions, no doubt, but the great and ovens-helm- .
Ing majority are no more oapablo of com
prehending" the principles of government
than many of ihe lower order of animals.
Thoir mental powers have been expended
heretofore la affording them sensational
pleasure or Avoiding pain. The whole scope
of their mental vision has been bounded by
their corporeal senses.
With such a class of beings, holding, as
they would, the balance of power in the
State, is it not certain that they must become
the dupes and tools of low, degraded and
designing men, and used, not for tho goal
of the negro oven, or for tho general bonefit
of all, but for tho advancement of personal
aggrandisement. What would bo certain
to follow if Uils immense mam of Ignorant
beings wero thus Suddenly endowed with the
elcctivo franchise? The heart of tho phi
lanthropist and patriot would iicken at the
sight. Then would bo seen a scramble for
the negro vote atnonst the lamest and basest
of tho white race. lie would bo coaxed and
bribed, and driven by whoever got hold of
him or had him in charge. Houses, and
"barns, and pens, and other inclosures would
be prepared, into which he would be gath
ered and kept for days previous to the day
of the election, and at tho proper time ho
would bo marbhed out under a guard to de
poaH Ids ballot. "Will.sttcU a state of things
add anything to our honor and dignity at
homo or abroad ? Will it increase our pros
perity as a State, or purify and elevate our
office holders? Will it advance and ele
vate the negro? And will it bo pa
tiently submitted to by tho white race?
If they submit it will bo from fear of tho
bayonets, whioh have to guard every pre
clnot In the State, in order to force this mon
strous outrage upon a free people. Ard, it
will be, in my opinion, the opening scene to
the dreadful drama that will follow, in
which the two races are to be involved, that
will eventuate in untold suffering to both,
but whioh must finally end in the total over
throw of one or tho other.
I therefore believe that, to oen tho ballot-box
to this ignorant race, without giving
them any time for learning how towo It,
would be a total departure from the wiso and
well regulated rules and law of the past, to
enter upon a wild and visionary theory that
will be sure to brine untold evils In its train
with no counterbalancing good. I would be
far more wiso to open tho ballot-box to all
our children ovor the age of ten years.
Thoy are a hundred time as well qualified
to oxcroise it properly. And wives, and
mothers, and sisters slibuld surely bo per
mitted to have a choice in our rulers rather
than tlhs infinitely inferior being.
Hut the advocates of this: measure pretend
that the nscro needs this privilege in order
to protect him from the tyranny of his for
mer master. This is a pure assumption, but
I suppose it true. Then it follows that there
I an antagonism between the races. Can
this be oveoome by balancing one against
the other in a sort of political cquilibrusi, or
mixing them up together in the same gov
ernment mx terms ot perfect political equali
tv. This is chimerical and utterly impos
sible In the present condition of two races.
Oho. roust and will rule the other, and be tho
controlling race, -or there will be an eternal
strife, resulting in the war and the extermi
nation of me or the ether.
The white racd aro still in the ascendancy,
and arc to-day the ruling race. Is it desire
abhstp rWe this wider and place the
black man above us? "This I know is the
aim and desire of many Of the fanatics of
the North; but it surely cannot be that any
white man livlngihouf Stale, who expects to
make his home here, can desire to sec this
social oveitBrniBg,rtils ufjtftfcving oftodetr
placing Uils ignorant, dbgralltd, but docile
and IntlecHlally effemiSt race, to govern
and rule hlra.
There is reallv- no antagonism between
the two races as they now stand. There is
not one man In ten thousand in our State
tli at feels any hostility to tho nero, person
ally. All tne people of this btate are as
ready to befriend and protect and aid him,
as the raett pretending philanthropist of the
North. They desire that he shall have nil
his legitimate rights, and be protected by
law in hk person and property. No one
blames him far having bean freed from ser
vitude, and all arc ready to admire his obe
dience to law and his general good be
havior, during, tho war and si nee he has been
a frecdmau. There is not the slightest dan
ger ef the white race, If left in political as
cendency, passing any laws to enslave or op
press the negro; but, on the other hand, lie
win be looked upon as a nceeeaarv and im
portant agent in the development and ad
vancement of the country; and if the two
races are let alone in their present relations
the will both soon adapt uiomscivea to
their altered condition, and cash will feel
niKttially dependent upon the other, anil all
will move harmoniously on. On the con

the party who foments and stirs up this
question, but against the negro himself.
It will be seen that I place my objections
io the measure upon higher grounds than
mereprejudico against caste. This, however,
should never be disregarded. Prejudices
are often salutary brakes upon liasty and in
considerate action, and should always receive
due consideration by those who undertake
to direct the affairs of State. There arf,
perhaps, but few native Tennesseans but arc
sensible of .their own superiority to thejne
gro. They feel that he is far below them anil
that he is destio'.nl to remain, and that thcV
never can recognize him as an jual, or
permit him to live in the country as their
superior. This feeling is almost universal
amongst rill clfcsses and conditions. The
rich and the poor, the loyal and those who
were disloyal, all agree and unite upon this

A WOItD OF ADVICE TO PLANTERS.
As a ceneral rule it will be found safest
for tho planter to sell his crop as soon as (t
can bo gathered and got to market. For a
term of years the plan will be found more
advantageous than the gambling system of
waiting for a rise in the market, which of
tener falls than rises after tho opening of tho
season. . j
There are. however, exceptions to this
rule, but to allow them to control we should
bo very sure of Our ground. We think one
may be made with safety with the present
teittnn nron. Tile" Inducement to realize.
growing out of thevarledand pressing wanfs
of not only planters but every other class,
are. perhaps, creater than ever before. On
the other hand, the anxiety of buyers to see
the crop thrown upon tho market is unusual.
To some extent our planters will be cotu-
Eellcd to yield to these influences. They
ave contracted debts to carry on their bu
siness that are due they need bagging,
rope, salt and iron their laborers, in many
cases, are to be paid their children are to
be sent to school, and a part of the money,
is required in advance these and similar
demands cannot well be postponed, and the
planter will be compelled to dispose of a
part of his crop in Order td meet them. But
in our judgment he should go no further fdr
the present. Wo think the present crop
will do to gamble upon. That it will bo
short below all Northern and European cal
culations, we have no doubt, and we would
not be swindled out of our hard earnings by
the miilionaires of Manchester and Lowell.
The crops in India, Egypt, and everywhere,
are short this vcar. as well as in the United
States, and we would wait at least until the J
competition between .Manchester and .Low
ell shall be fully established. It is usual for
the former to keep out of tho market until
tiie latter Is supplied, but this year -we have
not enough for both, and they should be
made to pay for it when they get it. There
is no reason why the present crop should
not bring forty cents per pound and even
more, and wo believe it will do it, provided
the necessities of the planters do not force
them Into the market. Macon Tdctjraph.
WAIFS FOIt LADIES.
Here are some of the fall novelties in Lon
don fashions; "In Boot Boots with red
heels arc daily seen on the fashionable prom
enades. Gaiters of black satin for street
wear are foxed with purple morocco, and
embroidered with purple silk. In Jewelry
Humming birds, with gold beaks and jew
elled eyos, aro worn as brooches, clasps and
agraffes; and in Veils White veils with
borders of colored lace, are just introduced."
When a lady would compose her mouth
to a bland and serene character, she should
just before entering tho room say "bosom,"
and keep the expression into which the
mouth subsides until tho desired effect upon
the company is evident. If, on the other
hand, she wishes to assume a distinguished
and somewhat noblo bearing, not suggestive
of sweetness, she should say "brush," tho
result of which is infallible. If she would
make her mouth look small, and needs en
larging, she must say "cabbage." If she
wishes to look mournful, she must say "ker
chunk." If resigned, she must forcibly
ejaculate "scat." Ladies when having their
photographs taken may observe those rules
with great advantage.
