Mil Tkisiui.k in announced to uddrcsai Ittie public in tho Keprcsentative Hall to- nlkilit on the issues of the canvass. lOne oi these issues as presented by his com- petitor, and which is exciting general in terest in this community, and throughout the distrio is on the subject of confisca tion. There are many non-voters as well as vtifer3whov havo a deep-etakoand anxiety upon,this subject,, who would be greatly pleased to hear Mr, Trimble take position on tho questisn. Without any wish to bo offensive, we respectfully, in behalf of the people of this Congressional district, ask Mr. Trimble, . Would you,-if elected. to'Congrcss,,Tote for any measure having for its object the confiscation of the lands or othcrproperty of the Southern people, including those of Tennesce, for the purpose of paying tho public debt, or for any other purpose? Do ypn believe it would be either jnst ...... - n or justihable to strip any portion or ciass of the people of Tennessee of their property, without compensation, for any purpose whatever? And would you op pose or favor such a proposition, if elected to Congress? . Wc do not wish to embarrass Mr. Trimble, or direct him from tho line of discussion that he has marked. out for ihmseif m the canvass, and have so pre sented the mattor as that his answers may bo in monysillables, and with these we shall be content INTIMIDATION AXD VIOLENCE. On several occasions violence has been threatened against Joseph E. Williams, a colored Conservative of this city. ITe has boon followed from place to place, open threats of assassination made, his footsteps have been dogged, his homo dis turbed at late hours at night, and he has been subjected to all manner of annoy nnce and nersecution. short of immediate and bloody violence. Within a. few days the same system has been adopted to wards Isaac Duncan, another colored Conservative of high standing in the com munity. It is scarcely necesiiary to add that those persecutions proceed from th dospicablo tools of Kadicalism, and that tho onlv cause for it is, that these men in the just exorciso of their free thought and judgment, are for the cultivation of tho feelings of justice and amity between the two races arc opposed to proscrip tion of the whites, and for emancipating thorn from tho despotism which" Brown- lowism seeks to ;iipposo. It is for this that poaceful, law-abiding and loyal black men are dorided, persecuted and threatened. If they were not as courage ous as they aro just and patriotic, they would havo bean silenced and driven from their ground before this. But for tunately they aro too brave to be intimi dated, and arc determined to assert their rights at any personal hazard. Wc learn from the Memphis papers that the same courso has been inaugura ted in that city towards the fearless col ored adherents of Conservatism. One of them, A K Thomas, was violently as sailed on Saturday last, by five armed black ruffians, while quietly sitting on the stoop of his own house, only for his opinion's sake. Wo have every reason to believe that white men of tho vilest type inspire these creatures to these lawless deeds. A short time sinco a statement appeared in a Memphis paper, on the authority of several rcspcotablo colored barbers, that oaths to murder blacks who dared to o against Brownlow, were administered in their secret midnight clubs. It is possi ble tho same system is pursued here, and that all the preliminary steps are being taken to reduce these hellish obligations to practice. It is difficult to bring these mutters boftiro the courts ; nnd if there is any Radical of influence and decency in tho community, it is his duty to cxer ciso that inlluenco to suppress this vio lence. It is dangorous to tho peace of tho wholo community. No Conservative has undertaken to control the negro vote bv intimidation or violence. It would not basurprising if they should qippso it in others or if they should stand ready to protect and defend their friends from these vicious assaults when made. l'lIlING THE RADICAL HEART. The Press and Times has inaugurated a species of bushwhacking in politics. It plays tho game of tho scuttle-fish to per fection. If its party happen? to bo guilty of something very bad, as tho shooting of nn unoffending citizen in Franklin county, recently, tho Press and Times is very apt to mako a grand discovery and raise a tcrriblo noise, under cover of which its own party may escape tho just indignation of the pooplo of tho State. One of its efforts in this lino is worthy of note. Whilo attontion was directed to tho outragos of Hickman's "loyal militia" in Franklin oounty, the Press and Times, by some unexplained means, discovered that thero was a "roign of terror in Mad ison county," tho particulars of which aro given in that paper of tho Sth inst as follows "A dismal state of thing? exists in the county of Madison, which gaye in 18G1 only twenty votes against secession, and 2754 votes for it. The negroes have been threat ened, bullied nnd outraged by the Rebels, until a general terror prevails among them. They are thruatened with all kinds of violence if they dare to attend a Union meeting, or support Gov- Brownlow. Plan ters threaten to drive them 1mm their omos. and the poor people dare not utter word for fear of their lives. When in company with persons whom they know to be their friends, and in whose prudence thev have confidence, thev declare them selves in favor of the Republican ticket, but j. . .. Tl. Jurtner man uns iney aarc noi go. mis is a fair sample of Rebel intolerance. Madi son and Obion counties arc illustrations of what the whole State would be if brought under Rebel rule. We must meet these difficulties in a resolute manner, and voters must be protected by whatever force is necessary. Union men shall be protected in every county in Middle and " est T2h- newee. We have horc an evidence of tho manner in which the necessity for the "loyal militia" is croated, but the Jack son Ivhiff of the loth inst pricks this bubble in a stylo somewhat more em phatic than elegant Says that papor "There is not a man in this county, while, black, or Radical, who does not know the above statement to be a base falsehood. There is not a Radical in the county, unprincipled as many of thein are, who will endorse the slander. There is no reign of terror in this county, but perfect quietude the people, white and black, are t work no excitement on the subject of Initios whatever; no threats of violence offered to any one about voting or attend ing Union meetings. Slanders like the Wc, are daily circulated through a proa-, jtituted press for the purpose of influencing Ithe result of the coming election. .W.e nik the honest men of this county, who can a partyftbat resorSjto aaclF dishonorable1 meanslto retain itsgillrgotfcn powcrwithj WU awu w wifcuyyiw Ul.a.l WUCViVliVii nr.i'uniATiox or gbeexbacks. The New York Herald may not be in favor of repudiating the public debt, but it is significant that it is proclaiming that repudiation is imminent In a recent issue it declares that "wo shall soon hear the word repudiation utre"3,'inuch as bondholders dread it' It is' very ' prob able that there is a party in this country, though perhaps small at present, in favor of repudiating the public debt But it is significant that so largely circulated a journal as the New York Herald is gravely discussing the probabilities of repudiation, and thus lending, its influ ence to familiarise the people'with such a measure. It at least shows the temper of the times. A proposition has been made and we believe it originated with the New York Tribune or a correspondent of that paper to pay off the national debt with greSen backs, and thus save to the nation tho immense amount which is paid out every year in the shape of interest This pro position is received with considerable favor, especially as it relieves the tax payers of a very onerous burden. If this measure should become so popular as to indicate its probable adoption by Con gress, Europe would soon be emptied of our bonds and n heavy decline in prices would follow. ANOTHER HELPER HOOK. One Ilinton Rowan Helper, who wrote a book before the war in favor of the abolition of slavery, has lived to see his wishes accomplished. He has also writ ten another book in which he tell. what ho would have done with the negroes, now that they are free. A contemporary has the following extracts, which sum-' ciently indicate tho scope and design of .this friend of the negro. The following is from the dedication : "To the moat enlightened and prosres slve portion of the people of the New World, who have the far-reaching foresight, and the manly patriotism to determine ir revocably, by their votes in 18G8-72, sooner or later, that alter the 4th of July, 1876, (or at the very furthest, after the 1st of January, 1900) no slave, nor would-be slave ; no negro nor mulatto; no Chinaman nor unnative Indian: no black nor bi- colored individual of whatever name or nationality, shall ever again find domicil any where within the boundaries of the United btates of America." The body of tho work contains such kindly sentiments as tho following. It will bo observed that they are "Kadical," as they go to the "root" of the business "Full and formal notice to the neeroes every one of them, including all mulat- toes, the quadroons, the octoroons, and all the other non-whites, that, after the 4th of July, loiO, their presence would be no longer required or tolerated north of the northern boundary of Mexico ; and assist them, to a limited extent, to tret somewhere (it would matter very little where) south of that south-moving boundary." " We should so far yield to the evident designs and purposes of Providence, as to be both willing and anxious to sec the negroes, like the Indians and all other ellete and dingy-hued races, gradually ex- terminated from the face of the whole earth." "On the premises of no respectable white person ; in the mansion of no honor able private citizen ; in no lawfully con vened public assembly; in no rationally moral or religious society ; in no decently kept hotel ; in no restaurant worthy of the patronage of white people ; in no reputable store or shop ; in no place whatever where any occupant or visitor is of Caucasian blood should the loathsome presence of any negro or negroes ever be tolerated." This same Helper was onco a great favorite with the Now England philan thropists. How long it will be before they embrace his present platform cannot be foreseen, but considering tho fact that the saintly Puritans were tho first to en gago in'the slave traffic, and only aban doned it when it ceased to pay, they are very likely to fall in with this infamous Helper doctrine whenever it shall appear that tho colored people may assert their political freedom, in antagonism to the Puritan idea that high tariffs, and that Southern labor must bo taxed to increase tho riches of New England capitalists. They will bo most probably then for the Helper programme of extermination. FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF N A N II V I I. Ti E .

The trial of biirratt was resumed to-day. 1 lie prison ex's brother Isaac occupied a seat by him. Sergeant Joseph M. Dyer recalled, and testified : As we nassed out II ntrppt a r 1 .1 r l ' i wuuiau luisvu a wmuow oi a nouse anu asked what was wrong down town. I told her Presidetil Lincoln had been shot. She asked who had done it, and I told her Booth. She asked how I knew that. I told her a man who knew him ?avr him. On that night the moon was light enough to see objects distinctly. I believe the the moon was up, but cannot say if it was at its fulli The woman was an elderly lady, hut I could not say whether she was stout or otherwise, but .she resembled, the lady, JUre. btirratt, who was tried at the arsenal. Have seen the house since; it is No. 54 H street; the house is on the right hand side of the street going toward Camp Barry. Witness then described the house known as Murratt house. The woman asked questions in an ordinary tone, but witness does not recollect whether she was much excited. When witness saw Booth, Surratt, and the other party at the theatre, neither of them was disguised. On cross-examination by Mr. Merrick, the witness, in main, repeated his direct testimony in answering the question put by the prosecution : why did you describe the third party as a neatly dressed man, and not mention his name, as you knew him tobeSurratt? A. Because I didn't think it was necessary till I was asked the ques tion. Q. Why did you use Booth's name and not Surratt's? A. Because I did not deem it necessary to mention Surratt's name. Q. "Were you not told not to name him till asked ? A. No, sir, I was not Witness saw Surratt in March last at the jail here ; was admitted by Ggn. Carring ton to see if he could identify him as the man who was under the gas light that night, and recognized him immediately ; did not tell Surratt for what purpose he went there, but when he saw him he accosted him with hallo John. The face witness saw in the jail was the face he saw in .his dreams, and the face he saw in front of the theatre. Q. And this is the man pointing to Sur ratt? A. Yes, sir, that is the face. Q. Would you have known that face if you had seen it elsewhere? A. Yes, sir, it's a face once seen is not easily forgotten. T did not request to go to the jail to see him, I went because 1 was requested to do fo. Mr. Merrick asked the witness what his religion was, but withdrew the question upon an objection being made by Mr. Car rington. The witness was interrogated at length as to his testimony before the military commission at the time of the assassination trial, and he endorsed what he there said, and insisted upon its correctness. In some slight particulars as to the height of men, etc., thero was a variation, and a strong effort was made to make the statements appear contradictory. Daniel C. Ueid swoi n :He had known the prisoner from quite a boy, and saw him on Pennsylvania avenue at two and a half o'clock on the day of the assassination; he evidently wore a bran new felt hat; the hat was not very low crowned, wide brim med; It was straw colored. He was paasing lip the avenue at an ordinary pace. Mr. Bradley desired to have the privilege of recalling Kcid for cross-examination at some future time, after the defense should have consulted with a witness now out of the city. Mr. Carrington objected to this course as being without precedent, and held that there was no rule of the court that justified such a course. Mis Bradly argued that it was a matter within the discretion of the court. The defense expected to prove that Keid had made statements out of court contradictory of what had been testified in court. Deci sion of question reserved till to-morrow morning. Susan Allen Jackson, colored, testified that Surratt was at his mother's house, in Washington, on the evening the President was assassinated, and identified the prisoner and had never seen him before that time or since, till last week, when he was brought into court. James Lingston, bookkeeper in the St. Lawrence Hotel, Montreal A man named Jno. 0. Harrison registered his name on April Cth, 13G5, and left on the 12th on the train for New York. The same party arrived on the 18th, and left almost immediately; could not identify the prisoner as the man. Mr. Bradley said the defense would ad mit that Surratt was in Montreal on the Cth and 18th of April, 18G5, and that he registered the name of John Harrison; they admitted that the names were in Surratt's hand writing. Gov. Pierpont said the prosecution was then paved rmich evidence. A coat was then shown and identified a3 one similar to that worn by Harrison. The court then took a recess until 10 o'clock to-morrow. Fire lit Chicago, mid I.iisw of Life. Chicago, June 18. Numbers fifty-four and fifty-six, Sherman street, occupied as a school and boarding house, were de stroyed by fire at three o'clock this morning.

Not only in this city, bnt this entire country has become familiar with the reputation of Dr. Coleman, as the most reliuble and successful practitioner, in his speciality, in the South. Perhaps no physician has given more attention to, and applied himself more earnestly and assiduously to discover the most speedy and positive cure of IHsenses of Fc mnlcs, DlNenscs of a privnte nature, 9Innhooil'H Debilities, Self-nlmse, Xe.r voiih Debility, Sexnal Infirmities, etc., than he has. Patients who reside n the country can havo the remedies applicable to their sev eral disorders forwarded tee any part, carefully secured in a portable compass, and in every respect of convenient use. Ladies need .not hesitate in applying for advice. A personal in terview is not always necessary. .Medicines, with instructions, can be administered through the medium of correspondence. Dr. Colemnu may always be found in his Office, in the rear of his Drng Store, on illc Lemore street. His medicines are carefully and accurately compounded by educated and accom plished pharmaceutists. Address, L. L. Colkmav, M. D., aprll tf 210 Church st.. Nashvillo.

And again, as it is somctimos tho custom of giving premiums, such as watches, etc., and having proof of the last two weeks' business that tho citizens of Nashville appreciate our efforts to help tho needy, we have therefore concluded to give ten per cent, of our profit to the poor of Nashville, from the 1st day of April, 1867, up to October 1st, 1807, (sis months.) which amount will be remitted weekly to the Mayor of Nash ville. Wo hope that the amateur billiard play ers and the public in general will appreciate the cause and sustain it. CAUVIN A- BERTIIKOL. mar30 tf Colonnade Billiard Hall.
