The repeal would only affect a few prominent

advice of Governor Parsons and other cltlsons of
Alabama, called the attention r the Legislature
to the amendment and urged action upon it, in
view of recent important events, but without
recommending its passage. Governor Patton It
represented by hU friends here as not baring
personally favored the adoption of the amend-
meet at any time.

The spirit of Mr. Rroomall s resolution is
direct oppposed to the whole policy of,
Mr. Lincoln's administration, and to the!
theory upon which the war was fought
Throughout the contest it was asserted.
that theAvftr was waged simply to assort,
tho supremacy of the constitution and thd
Union, and it is a concecded fact that the
war could not have been carriod on upon
any other idea than the entirety of the'
Union. The first wish of Mr. Lincoln's
heart, apparently, was to restore the
Union as it existed at the time of his first
election, after providing for the abolition;
of slavery. It in even averted that in
insisting upon the latter condition in tho
last year of the war, he was nt issue with
a majority of the people of the North, who
would have been well content to have ee
curod tho Union, leaving tho question of
slavery to bo settled at a future time. It is
further asserted that his cekbrated noto'
'To whom it May Ocihcern," and delivered
to the Confederate agente at Niagara
Falls, througlrlHoraoe Ureley, in Junes
1SC4, did not satiiify (lie NorilObeMUSd i
made the abolition of slavery a conditioi:
of peace on the basis of the Union. Th4
New York Timet probably expressed the
public f ntiment of the day. in. stating
that Mr Lincoln had no authority to re
quire any such stipulation. lie found
none in the constitution, and his oath of
office, it said, bound him to accept tho ac
knowledgment nf the supremacy of the
fundamental law by the South as the vir
tual relinquishment of the rebellion. We
thus see how wonderfully matters have
changed since the day when it was conr
sidered doubtful whethor the Southern
Statos could be conquered
Tho object of Mr. RroomHu'a "resolu
tion is plainly indicated in the concluding
sentence. It is to disfranchise the great
body, 'perhaps nine-tonU, of the Southern
people, nnd place the jvolitiool powefr
of the South ill the hHnds ol 'the ne
groes. This is done in the bopo that
tho ncirrdoa will so vote as to give the con
trol of affairs to the Radical party. 1
tho adoption of thepoliey shadowod forth
in this resolution, the Radicals would be.
enabled to elect their candidate for l'rcsif
dent in 1808, nndtfkon they would be wil,
ling to admit the States organized mainly
by negro votes in the South. This is the
boldest attempt that has yet been mode
to uiswlvo the Union Mid to hand ovor
that portion which the Confederates, ac
cording to tho result of the war, failed to
get out of the Union, to tin control of the
negro population of the South. It is thus
that the House of Representatives, by; a
vote of 107 to 37. has declared that the
Confederates gained the principle for
which they fought, that they did not sue
ceotl in establishing and maintaining their
government simply beoauee they were
overpowered by superior numbers, but
that tliev did succeed in destrovine the
ml a ,
unity of the States. After all the ex
ponditure of blood and treasure for the
preservation of the Union, the nation and
the world now learn that "the war te
save the life of the nation" was a farce;
This, then, is the solntina of the Radical
plan of reconstruction the Southern
States liava ojonimitted suicide, and must
be handedovr to the negroes for terri
torial organisation.' The work of reor
ganizing State governments, repudiating
Confederate debt and all that, is to be
set at nought The industrial interests
of the South are to be destroyed, the ill
feeling between the sections which culmi
nated in the ltc war W to be revived, and
a precedent is to be established which
will be dangerous to the future security
of the Union, and all this that the Radif-
cfil party inay. perpetuate its leasripon
power Well may the thoughtful'ask,
whither are we drifting?
The Radical papers of the North tel
us that Greeley has ruined hie prospects
for a seat in the United States Senate
from New York, by his manly frankness
in advocating unconditional universal am
nesty. Never mind, Horace; It will take
the North, wliom you haw been teaching
for ferty ooneeoutive years, several more
to find out hew wisejyou are. ia this par

POHJLBS OF THE. SCHOOL JTXD
jfil'iniTEI ATVAT-SX-R1XIKG DIS
XciiOSQIlES. For sovoral days it has been whispered
with bated breath in and about the Capii
tol that all was not going well with the
State Treasury. As long ago as tho 4th
inst, tlroiSenato adopted a resolution call
ing upon tho Treasurer for information
as to the whereabouts of the public funds.
After three days' delay, that functionary
addressed a note to -Speaker Frierson,
stating in brief antl curt terms that $154,
523 64 of the public funds were on deposit
" in Fiscal Agencies" on the 1st inst, and
that the 7-30 TJ. L securitiesfcelonging to
the School Fund, with the interest ac
crued thereon, aro on deposit in the Ten
nessee National Bank at Memphis. When
this reply was handed to bpeaker Jrier-
son is not stated, but three days after its
date he presents it to the Senate, and bo"
cornea first the property of the public.
Simultaneously with this publicity, the
Speaker presented to the Senate a special
niessage from the Governor; stating thot
hj direction of the Legislature the Gov
ernor. Secretary of State and Comn-
;troller, " have lield for safe keep
ing $oits,w in -v-3U u. . oonas,
'known, jis ,the School Fund.'' JJi
El
states further that the Treasurer
"demanded this fund of the Comptroller,
who held it for safe-keeping in a good and
mfiicient safe, in a fire-proof building,"
.and that "last week, for the first time in
his life, he learned that the Treasurer
had loaned this fund to one of the Mem
Ifpliis banks, without consultation with

of the fund this "sacred" school fund
under an act of the Legislature, passed
at the last session and that it was ac
tually loaned to the bank at Memphis as
long.ago luvtho 5th of June last
It may also be stated in this place that
this "identical fund" accrued from the
specie assets of the' Bank of Tennessee

terests of Tennessee children for genera
tipns to, come. y .
In addition to the official documents re
ferrcd to, wo will state some of the roports
current in tho financial circles of this
city, which are probably well-founded. It
is said that the Treasurer's Memphis de
pository, the Tennessee National Bank,
when it came into possession of thebondB
took them to New York and hypothecated
them for currency, and used the currency
thus obtained in unsuccessful specula'
tions, and the whole has thus been squan
dcred. It is also stated that in addition
to the bonds nnd interest, some $30,
000. of tho $154,000, designated by
the Treasurer as being deposited
with " Fiscal Agencies " was with
the same bank, and has taken the same
road as the rest The total amount thus
placedjin the keeping of this "fiscal agen
cy(" may be estimated at about $700,000.
which if tho statements made
true, is likely to become a total loss to the
State.
The matter has not been sufficiently
developed to fix the guilt upon any one or
more indiyiduals. The. Governor, in, tho
gushing charity of his proverbially tendar
and amiable nature, says he intends m
reflection on the bank, as all banks have
a rifrht to borrow and lend money." Hd

cannot say anything to the detriment o!
the Treasurer, only that he protesU
against the secrecy maintained by " him
in.the transaction. , r-

It should not lose a day, in ferreting oui
the responsible parties. If they fail
do so their own reputation will not fail to
share the odium attaching. to the transac
tion. After all that has been said in this
State by the Governor and his followers
of the sacredness of the " school fund,''

THE MEMPHIS UIOT-lIOXOKAiiU:
TESTISIOXY
Our Memphis cotemporaries are pufc
lishing full extracts from tho report T)f
that branch o'f tho Congrcssionalilnquisi-
tion which sat upon the Memphis riots.
The chairman of tho committee was one
of the numerous office-holding family
named Woshburne all ,of whom aro i
loyal" Wc forget whether this was
Israel, Elihu or Cadwallader. ' The
report which fa, cxpqrte ,, entirely in its
character, speaks in scvorc Jennsof Hon.
M. IL Perkins, United States District
Attorney for Wfi&t Tennessee. Judge
Perking is a Northern man bv, birth, and
was an officer in the Federal service. He
was summoned as a witness with the ex
pectation that he would testify that every
Southern man in Memphis was a roaring
Rebellion, seekinga negro, to devour him,
wherever he might be found; and that
he would give eyidence to gratify the
prejudices of Washburne and his com
mittee. On the contrary, he delivered
himself in quite. a different style. .His
answers' to Washbuf ife are whatriiws
tinguished politician of this State, now
dead, was accustomed to call ','gut styotu."
sHis examination did credit to his head
and his heart, and.' put the committee to
the blush. It explains the malignant al
lusions to him used in the report. We
append it as a refutation of radical cal
umny, at once pungent and conclusive:
Q. State whether, since you have been
in Memphis, your intercourse with the
citizens has been free, and whether or not
you have had an opportunity of ascertain
ing aiiu learning me ucuciui juuuu reuu-
ment of the people of Memphis in relation
to the netrro population here?
A. 1 think that I catt safely say that I
am 'well acquainted with the.peopleof the
cHy penerail v. I have been thrown in con'
tact with them officially, and since then 1
have met them in business and socially, and
I feel, perhaps, better acquainted with these
people than with any other people any
where, though I have been here but a short
time; and 1 have no hesitation tn .saying
that, so far as I have observed, the feeling
on the part of the people of this city of
the Southern people, the Uonfederaten, the
nlrl ritiipna nml -former' masters is five
times more friendly and kind toward the
neero than that which exists on my part,
or that of any Northern man who was not
raised among them. And I think that a
negro of this city would go for a favor to
one of these old citizens sooner than he
would to one of my class, though I feel as
kindly towards them as I can feel, but J
nave not tne sympatny mat see my
neighbors and friends around me have to
wards the negroes. It is not a feeling I
have in my heart.
0. You spoke of Northern men here: do
you not know of the prejudice existing
against Northern men who entertain senti1
. , j. . i - . . i . : i
men is irnicu are ounoxious 10 me majuruy
of the citizens?
A. I do not think that sentiment towards
Northern men holding those political opin
ions is more deeply felt by others than my
self.
Q. What is your prejudice against
them?
(A. I think their policy is ruinous to the
country.
Q: What is the policy which you believe
to be ruinous to the country ?
A. Tho proscribing of and tho refusal to
admit these States to their original position;
the course that Congress has taken through
the winter.
Q. Do you thiuk that a man who for
three years has been fiKhtingyou.andendeav-
oring to tear down the government, should
have the same rights that vou should?"
A. I am satisfied that that man has
been brave and sincere; he believed he
was right, and he fonghtlikea mapjjl have
reason to know that; and from his 'conduct
during that time I am satisfied that when
he takes the oath allegiance he will be loy
al to the eovernment of the United States.
and that he will never take up arms against
it; it would be better to tako that'man hack
and restore him to his old place, than to
.i i it- . i .
punue tne opposite policy anu Keep mm in
a stale of bondage.
Q. I do not mean any man in particular,
but ' you think that men who have been
in arms against the government, and at
tempting to destroy it, should be permitted!
to have the same rights in controlling the
government they sought to destroy, as tho
men who sought to uphold that govern
raent?
A. I thiuk if any discrimination is to be
made, it should bein favor of the loyal citi
zen.
Q. You say that no Southern man can
have a greater prejudice against, or would
denounce more strongly -than you would.
the Northern man who would bo in favorf
of that franchise law ; and yet that fran
chise law is simply to prohibit a man
who has given aid and comfort to the
rebellion from now exercising the right bf

A. I say, most emphatically, that if
should meet such a man publicly, in poll
tics, I should denounce him, the same as
you have been in the habit of denouncing
your political opponents.
Q. It ia an infamous law, you think, be
cause it prohibits a man from voting who
has been a Rebel and has given aid and
comtort to the rebellion 7 .
A. But the man has been invited tq
come back, and I am not in favor of his;
being held as a serf, but of his beins re
ceived and entitled to the privileges of an;
American citizen, whose highest privilege,
is to be entitled to' vote.
Q. What has been the- character of the
puDiic expression oi sentiment in tins city c
Has it been loval since the rebellion, was
suppressed? ;
A. I never heard a disloyal Sentiment
(uttered in public , . I ;
Q. Did 'you hear the address which wa.41
made by Landon C. Haynes at the tourna-t

you liave heard them? .1 refer to -'the
whole address. Did you hear this portion

"The magnanimity and grace with whicl;
the people have acquiesced in the issues
decided against them by the verdict of the'
sword, are only equalled by that superhu
man hieh-mindedness and kniehtly chiv

extorted admiration from their stern foes,
but made them seem to forget that they had,
ever heard the name of death. Applause.!,
And it can scarcely now be expected by!
enlightened men that the people of the
South should suddenly transfer their affec

humanity, nefarious in the name of piety,
