The Preus and Timet a few days since,
referred to the exposition of the duties of

" sophistry." It has been time and again
shown that the 10th section of the fran-.
ehise law did not repeal the section of the
Code authorising and making it the duty
of the County Courts to appoint these
officers. It needs no argument to make
it plain that the letter of the law only
conferred this power upon the Itegistra

failure or neglect of tha duty by the

TOO EAUtYT-TITE PKOOUESS OP
TheTSncihnatf Gazttli df W3dnBr
discusses the subject of "recqhstruction
mistakes" at considerable length, from
which we extract as follows :
"Mr Swinton, the Bpecial correspondent
of the New York Timce, now traveling in
the South, devotes a long letter to Tennes
see, in which he represents its condition as
the worst of any of the Rebel State". He
says : 'Tennessee is in a mo9t lamentable
condition a condition compared with
which that of Virginia or of Georgia is one
of Etitopian happiness.' And he gives his
idea of the first cause of this unhappy
state : I believe the root of the evil is
found in the faot that Tennessee had the
misfortune to be reconstructed too early.'
To this extent we can agree with the writer.
The condition of Tennessee is deplorable.
It U not fo peaceful as it would be under
even the military government of the
United States, and the original cause is
that the State was reconstructed too early.
"Mr. Swinton's pen is apt to 6ween over
physical, moral and logical obstacle as if
unsconscious of their existence, ine con
ditions which made reconstruction prema
tnre in Tennessee were not changed by the
act of reconstruction. These conditions
were the existence of a great class, that
unless restrained by superior power,
would be the ruling class, who were
hostile to the nation and bore a deadly
hatred to the loyal people of Tennes
see. Instead of beine changed by the act
of reconstruction, it was then that these
became dangerous. It was a matter not
only of the loyalty of the State to the na
tion, nut ol hie and death to the loyal in
habitants, that the government should be
kept out oi tne bands of these hostile ele
ments. Mr. Swinton takes nc thought of
these, lie recognizes that reconstruction
is impracticable under such conditions, but
as Boon as it is undertaken he seems to
think that the difficulties have disan
peared, and he puts the whole blame on
those who have to meet them.
"Disfranchisement does not settle the
matter. It is one thing to pass an act dts
franchising the ruling: class, and another
thing to execute it. In the most favorable
conditions it would be likely to create
something like a state of war. Coming on
top of war. it would be likely to prolong it
We have to pay here, as we said when the
precipitate reconstruction of Tennessee was
being hurried through by Air. Johnson
and when Mr. Lincoln put forth his ten
per-cent swearing loval plan of reconstruc
tion, that a state of things in which the
former ruling class, or any large portion of
the people, have to be distranchised in
order to make the elections safe; is not fit
for an elective government. It is an abase
of language to call such a thing a govern
ment of the people.
m "And here we lay down an
other truism that we have adhered to
through all the agitation of reconstruction
that a government formed by military
coercion is not a civil government, and
cannot become so without a fundamental
reconstruction after military interference
has been withdrawn."
Tho history of what is called recon
struction in Tennessee is a thorough re
futationof the theory of the Gazette. We
do not owe the troubles which now beset
this State to early reconstruction, but to
the gross mismanagement of the State
authorities, or rather to their efforts to
control the elections for their own bene
fit When the Legislature assembled in
the spring of 1865, a law was enacted
which disfranchised n largo number of
the citizens of tho State. Tim law was
regarded jib vory stringent, inasmuch as
it excluded from the ballot-box so great a
number ofUhe'best and most substantial
citfteris. Tha first election heldunder
this law occurred on the first Thursday
in August, 1865, and the satisfactory
manner in which the law workedmay be
gathered from tho message of the Gov
error to the Legislature, dated October
1865. He said :
"Under tho workings of a most excel
lent and necessary law, passed at your
spring session, known as the 'franchise act,'
we have held congressional elections in the
eight districts of the State, and have elected
einht representatives to the next Coneresa
oi the united .states. As a general thing.
the election passed off quietly, with here
and there exceptions, and was characterized
by much better behavior than was antici
pated. Mast of the districts were thoroughly
canvassed, and a large vote, considering all
the circumstances, was polled. As many
as 60,000 votes have been reported to the
Scrcretary of State's office as cast, which, in
view of the registration required, and the
restrictions so properly thrown around the
ballot-box, as well as the short time al
lowed to prepare for the election, was all that
could reasonably have been expected. The
clerks in some counties are reported to have
neglected their duty, and to have granted
certificates of registration to many who
were disfranchised by law. I think that
law can be improved by amendments and
additions, but I must be allowed to say that
I am by no means an advocate of its re
peal. Nor do the loyal people of the State
desire its repeal, if I understand their sen
timents. The authority of the
constitution and laws of the United States
and of the State of Tennessee has now ex
tended over almost every county in the
State ; the machinery of civil government
is working well, except in a few instances,
and it affords me great pleasure to say that
our people are rapidly recovering from the
effects of insurrection, whilst prosperity is
promised in every section."
Here is the evidenee that the Governor
was satisfied with tho working of this
most excellent" law, and although he
was opposed to if! repeal, he was by no
means oartaln that the loyal people"
wore of the same way of thinking. But
there were leaders of the Radical party
who were dissatisfied with the result of
the olaetinn, and they set to work to ore
ate a sentiment hostile to this law which
the Governor had pronounced "most ex
cellent" What influences were brought
to ber upon the Governor to this end
may be inferred when the fact is stated
that within two mSnths from the time ho
had expressed satisfaction with the work
ing of this law, he coolly informed the '
Legislature that he hod refused to count
as legal more than one-third of the votes j
cast in the congressional election. There
ware 61,726 votes cast, and he assumed
that 21,340 of those, scattered over oonrly
the entire State, were illegal Wo say
assumed, for he presents no proof &3 to
their illegality. This election demon
strated the faet that the enfranchised citi
zens woald not Bustain the Brewnlow
Fletcher government in its outrageous
usurpations and criminal violations of
law A new franchise law was therefore
domarlded, which would cut off these
contumacious men who would not carry
out the behests of Brownlow andFletoher.
The Governor deolared " that the public
safety "by which he meant the success
of the Brownlow-Fletcher schemes
" absolutely requires a thorough revision
of the present suffrage laws." The lead
ors went to wort and oauaus after caucus
was heid, until the wavering and tbe less
resolute members of the Legislature wer t
edaoatedap to the work demanded of(
them. Finally, the deed was accoia

been made voters by the law of June,
18C5, should remain disfranchised. It
was not alleged that they had committed
any crime after being enfranohished, but
and Fletcher. Without the semblance of
justice or law, these men wore deprived
of their right to vote; a right which tho
highest judicial tribunal in England de
cided more than a century ago was a prop
erty right, of which a man could no more
be deprived than of any other -property
except by due process of law: that is;
trial and conviction by a jury.
In his message of November G, 18C6
the Governor said of this new law:
"The franchise law passed on the 3d o
May last is not yet fully in operation. Re,
sisters have been appointed in all of the
counties of the State, but manv of them
have not completed their labors and made
their reports. As fast as they have done
so, I have ordered elections in compliance
wiin uie law. x am nappy m suite mat
the Registers have been generally faithful
and firm in the discharge of their impor
tant duty. Except in the city of Nashville,
the late special elections seem to have been
held substantially in accordance with the
Again it was demonstrated that the
majority of those enfranchised under this
law would not" sustain tho Brownlow
Fletcher usurpation, and in despair these
twin adepts in political iniquity demanded
that the negro, whom they hoped to
wheedle into their support, should be en
franchised, that a still more stringent
franchise law for white men be pa aged
and that they be authorized to disfran
chise . whole counties whenever their
schemes would bo. advanced by such an
act of perfidy. This demand was obse
quiously complied with by acts passed
the 25th of February and the 8th of Marc
of the present year. Under the last named
act Brownlow and Fletcher have disfrau
chised, " excluded from the right of suf
frage," every citizen in twelve of the
counties of this State. And'whywas
this done 2 The constitution of Tennes
see provides but one way in which a
qualified voter may be deprived of his
right to vote, and that is upon conviction
of having committed an infamous crime
The citizens of these twelve counties ac
quired the right to vote under the fran
chise laws of 1865 and 1S66, if they did
not possess this right before,yetupon tho
mere motion of these twin " architects of
ruin," thousands of citizens are deprived
of a right which ourconstitution declares
can only be restricted for an infamous
crime whereof the party shall have been
duly convicted by a court of competent
jurisdiction. And there nre thousands of
our best and most substantial citizens in
every county of the .State whose right
have been similarly trifled with by
venal majority in the Legislature. For
these repeated wrongs the people have no
redress, for the Governor, whichever for
the timo being exercises tho powers of
that office, " has made Judges dependent
upon his will alone, for tho tenure of their
offices and the amount and payment of
These and their accessories constitute
the Pandora's box from which issue forth
the brood of evils that afflict Tennessee
leaving us in "a condition compared witl;
which that of Virginia or of Georgia is
one of Eutopian bliss." It was not that
Tennessee was reconstructed too early,
but from the shameless perfidy and grasp
ing ambition of men thrown to the stir
face by adventitious circumstances, that
the State has suffered so terribly, nnd
made this people an object of commisera
tion with unprejudiced, fair minded men
of theJvorth." In his message to the Legis
lature, dated the 3d of October, 1865
only six months after the inauguration of
the State government, tho Governor was
forced by the good behavior, the "loyal'1
condntof the people, to confess that "the
machinery of government is working well,
except in a few instances." And like in
stances might have been found before the
war. Had our authorities then risen to
the level of statesmanship and inaugu
rated a policy of justicp toward a people
thus reconstructed and striving to bring
the State back to the old paths, affairs
would have gone on smoothly. But the
weak men who have control of the State
government assumed that overy man who
did not sustain them in their usurpations
was "disloyal," and a system of persecu
tion nnd annoyance has been inaugurated
that has left the State in a far worse con
dition than any of the Southern States.
t.nd the facts, coupled with their own
confessions, snow that Brownlow and
Fletcher and their henchmen are the sole
authors of the disorders that prevail in
QUESTIONS FOBBItOWXI.OW WII.I.
.In a speech delivered at Chattanooga
on the night of the 9th inst, Col. John
IL James, lately a member of Governor
Brownlow's staff, propounded the follow
ing. "Brownlow has done nothing for the
people. I want to ask him if he will al
low me to publish in the journals of Ten
nessee all confidential communications to
any parties in regard to the assistance he
would have given to the Southern Confed
eracy, and I want him to answer "Yes" or
MNOj" in his paper.
Did not Wm. G. Brownlowwrite a letter
to the Rebel General Polk, promising to
aid the rebellion as scoa as he could do so
with decpney ? v
. Did he not write letters of a similar
purport fo Robertson Toppof Shelby coun
ty, and tothglate Jepflia Fowlkesf
Will he answer these questions, and will
he authorize the personarhaving.the letters
to publish-them, if they are in existence-?"
This puts the matter in a shape that
will settle it If Brownlow grants the
permission, the letters will show how he
tood. If he doesnt, then Ins refusal
will establish the charge.
