The leaders in the thirty-ninth Congress

that the war ended two years too soon
and they set deliberately to work anti
foruiod the Radical party. K Mr. Lin

oarly discerned the diabolical sentiment
around which n band of able and cun

an organization, it would have failed.
Rut the prosont occupant of. the Presi

lect and will, was uufortunately situated
to chock those schemes. Ho came to the
Executive chair under circumstances
which re-aroused nil the bad passions of
the war, but for whioh the Southern peo
ple were net responsible. He was a
Southern ihru by birth, and a Democrat
before the war. The villaincus men who
had sot thpir hearts on prolonging strife
seized on those facts with avidity. They
have destroyed the prospect of restora

have substituted military satrapies for

Tins Columbia Herald and GattlU of
the 20th inst. stated that it had heard on
good authority that .7. .7. Noah 'boll de
clared himself an independont candidate
for the Legislature against Gilmer, the
Radical nominee. The Prtt and Times
denied the statement, nnd demand it felt
sure "AKJ. Ntah would Heorn to not po
treacherously toward the Republican
party as to playihe .'boltor and split the
regular ticket." The Herald and Ga
zette of the 27th says the Press and Times
knew when it uttered tliis denial "thht
Maj. Noah bad iled his affidavit with tho
Secretary, of State deolaring himself n
candidate," and adds
" It way be treachery to the Republican
party, and it may he a slh scheme of
Major Noah's, but it k neverthelees a fact
that lie is on the track ami going under
whip-and spur, head and tail up, and de
termined to beat Gilrder if he can. The
Prtm mist Tm4 evidently does not like it.
But how if Major Noah is elected, he will
certainly not be refused a seat. He cer
tainly is Radical enough for the most
Radical use. It is true he denounces Brown
low, according to street rumor, a an un
mitigated Hooundrol but then il-k he has

to solicit the appointment of members of

on Iho day of election; The Mayoronr
teously replied that he did not consider
tbe special police as a political force, or
to be used to advance the interests of
any pr.rly ; that in his position as Mayor
he only desired to execute the city laws,
to preserve the public repose and protect
the citizens in their property and other
righ'ts'flJ 'far as his position and the laws
required of him. Addressing Maj. Al

Carey retired precipitately, and tho other
members oi the cominittee expressed
their approval of the course indicated
by tho Mayor us tho one he would pursup.
Upon this subject we have a word of
warning for the Honorable Mayor. Some
ten days ago we published an exposure
of the ritual and designs of the Loyal
Leagues and the Cirand Army of the Re
public. The members of these organiza
, tions are sworn to espouso party under
all circumstances. They have been pre
paring for violence and bloodshed in this
city ;on the day of election.- This ex
postire has not been and cannot be truth
fully denied. The Mayor should be care
ful not to appoint one of these sworn
enemies of the public pence on the police
force. It would be introducing the
Grecian horse "within the walls of Troy,
hiring men with our own money to cut
our throats and destroy our property.
We have no objections to Radicals being
placed on tho police; but if the Mayor
shall appoint n Leaguer or a " comrade "
of the G. It. A. on that force, he will be
employing sworn assassins to disturb
the public repose. - - '
How VQTins are,Mdk. On Saturday
last we are informedtthat n bjsk bus!
ness was driven in giving out certificates
at Lavergne to colored males. No ques
tions were asked either as to age, resi
dence or loyalty, but the certificates were
given to the annointed without question
or price. The person who issued them
was not a Register. We aBked our in
formant if the Register had opened an
office at Lavergne "If o replied" that the
smuggling department wus doing tho
work. "How," Ave asked. "Why," said
he, "don't you know? Sherbrooko
wanted a t qertain number of voters in
that precinct It is in Rutherford coun
ty. He sent the certificates down to one
of his strikers, and he issued them ac
cordingly. Wby, that's as easy as fall
ing off a lo ! Are editors fools," he con
tinued, "who don't know when these
political cheats and gamblors have the
cards stocked in every civil district in the
State, they wont play 'em to win? Why,
that is Brownlowism !' And the man
who had called to give us an item, turned
and walked away as if he thought he had
met an honest man who was trying to
carry on business with thieves.

citizens of the State of Teunefee, and vo

and of the State of Tennessee.
6th. We are opposed to the repudiation
of (the national debt, and are in favor of
equal taxation as the proper method of
paying the same.
Uth. That the establishment of a stand

a flagrant and dangerous eneroaehraeut up

evidently designed to over awe voters at
