Last Wednesday was a bright and beauti
ful day; not a cloud obscured the heavens,
nd nature smiled in all ber loveliness and
beauty. At an earl bour the magnificent
banner belongiog to the Union League at
this place, upon which is inscribed "In the
Radical Congress is our ouly safety" was
thrown to the bane, which excited the ad
miration and enthusiasm of the sovereigns
to the highest degree as they poured iu trum
every quarter. The spnrkliug eyes anil
beaming countenances, and tho dejected
looks and melancholy visages told as plain
as human tongue could deluxe tho political
Status of the crowd.
Hon. Emerson Etheridge, the Conservative
candidate for Governor.ret'used from the lirat
tj divide time. A committee of gentlemen
representing the Radical party called upon
him the evening previous, requesting a dis
cussion of the political issues of the day,
opeoly, fairly and candidly. To this eotn
jiuttee be responded in the negative. Every
means was used to have a discussion but
be persistently refused, showing conclusive
ly tbt bo wu afraid to meet the issues, or
I: had come into this Hadical stronghold to
uct the part of a bully.
At half past 11 o'clock Etheridge repaired
to the Court House and harangued his hear
ers for two hours r more. We heard the
begiuning of his speech but to save our life
could not tel! what he was driving at. He
committed himself to a most glaring incur. -iistencv,
asserting be did not speak lor the
rebels, did not plead for the rebels, and caret,
nothing about the rebels, and at the same
time be is running upon a plailorm the thir l
plank of which says in so many words that
the disfranchised citizens of Tennessee should
la immediately restored to the full right,
iinuiuuities and privileges' of citizenship.
As a matter of course be denounced the
Radicals with great billerueasaud vehemence
and charged upou them corruption, fraud
and extravagance, and proved bis assertions
with just such a train of arguments s would
be Htcutirij to eouvince a man of perfect
light that the darkest Ethiopein can change
bis colour tr alabaster whiteness, ind the sun
be stopped in bis course by shooting arrows
at his glowing disc. From sheer curiosity
we counted Mr Etheridge'a audience, which
was one hundred and eigh'y-sil, one fourth
of which we know certainly to have been out j
and out rebels, fifty at Iran were radicals j
an I the rest wero conservatives, llu' as i
there were many in the audience we did not
know, we think our.elf safe in saying that
Etheridge did not have fifty bearers wlio will
Tote for hi"i.
At the same time Etheridge began his
harangue, the Radicals formed in procession
iu front o! lUe Court House under t hief Mar
shal Capt. lieo. E. (Jrijbani, and marched to
Ibe beautiful grove of the Female College in
the west pari of '.be town, where they were
addressed at leagbt by Col. L. C, llouk, who
llatavd the Conservative party without mercy,

U recover ju a century. The audience In
tho grove numbered at least eight hundredj a
goodly number of which were colored citi
zens. Tho colored people listened with the
utmost attention, and prepured themselves
for easting an intelligent vote the 1st .Thurs
day of next August. Not one single colored
man did wen olice in the Conservative audi
ence. They knowjiom the very reason of the
case that they are hopelessly undone and
doomed to a second slavery if the Radical
party are defeated, anc1 consequently lake no
concern in the coLVocationa ef that party
whose corner stono is the annihilation of
We are happy to sny that notwithstanding
in the morting there were some symptoms of
a disturbance everything passed oft" quietly,
and both parlies demeaned themselves prop
erly. The Radicals ot Washington C ounty,
largely in the majority, have shown to the
world that they have no disposition to treat
with disrespect any one who may come iuto
their midst to advocate the policy of the op
posite party The quietness with which last
Wednesday passed away shows conclusively
that the spirit th st animates the opposition
iu their strongholds is quite ditfercut from
that which stimulates thu Radical party
wh.re they largety.predominate.
At night Col, Jvlralpeownlow, the ac
complished editor 61' tM'Knoivill- ',ad
dressed our white and colored citizens at
the Court House. He pitched right Into the
Etheridge-Johuson party and exposed its rot.
ttnnert and corruption in capital style, lu
bricity reviewed the political leeord of their
stellar lights, and showed that the people of
Tennessee would he hopelessly ruined if the
govrr.ment should fall into their hands. He
paid his respects to one John Baxter, the
Chairman ol the Conservative State Commit
tee and convicted him of almost every
species of villiany known to the laws.
The Colonel explained and ably defended
the principles of the Jf.idiral Union party,
and convinced his hearers that the prosperity,
greatness and glory olour country depcuded
upo n its success.
Thus ended another day of triumph for
the Radical party. They had two advantages
over the conservatives -one a la.ge r ainlicnce
and that audience co nposod principally of
voters. Some who came here Etheridge men,
went hour) with the determination to votu
for Gov. Ilrowulow, giving the1 very sensible
reason that they would support no mnn, who
would not divide time and disctus the ques
lions of the canvass with a representative of
the opposite parly.
We believe there have been fifty desertions
of qualilied voters from the Conservativ e par
ty in the last month iu this county, and by
the time of election they will hardly be able
to muster a Corporal's (iuard.

Where we have to pay rash lor ink, paper,

penses of a printing office, wo cannot afford
to send out papers without prepayment. It is
simply impossible. Each subscriber can very
easily pay three dollars a year lor a weekly,
whereas the aggregate to us would be an
amount that few readers of a weekly paper
even dream of. Already there are on our
books enough charges for advertising and
subscriptions to make us independent if we
could get the moiie.1, and yet advertisers and

little importance, whore the sinus due front

Conviction of Judge Frazlcr.
Judge Kramer is impeached. Be is de
posed from the office of Judi;e of the Crimi
nal Court of Davidson County, and disqual
ified for exercising the functions of any of
fice in the State. After a careful and im
partial examination of the evidence uddiiced
we have only to say that the tribunal by
which this verdict is rendered, has acted
impartially and in full accordance with tho
highest dictates of reason and right. The
Nashville Union and Ditpatch is terribly ex
ercised over the sentence, but this only
proves the simple nnd undeniable fact that
the rebels and conservatives arc working to
gether to achieve the downfall of the Radi
cal party, and to force their obnoxious prin
ciples upon thu people of Tennessee against
The conviction of Judge Frazier is bt.t a
warning to those entru.ted with the adminis
tration of justice in this State, that if they
do not comply rigidly with their oath of of
fice, they must sulfur tho penalty thereto at

destined to be memorable in thu history of

will go down to polerity loaded with oblo

solemn oath which he swore upon induction
to ollioc and the partiality and unfairness h
exhibited in the discharge of the same. The
verdict is past and Judge Frazier is disgraced

liAjruTR, Pa., May 20. UG7."
DiarSir: Short as your letters is, I fear
I cannot answer without violating n iniunc
tion of my medical adviser, " not to sulTer
uijscu vo wecoine excited." You live in a
fegion which was two or three times iuvaded
by the armies of Jefferson Davis, in the coun
ties of Uedford, Fulton, Franklin, Cumber
land, Adams nnd York. They visited almost
eiei y inrnicr ami otner inhabitant, and plun
dered them ol their horses, cattle, provisions,
wagons and money, when found. Besides
some diTachcd cases, they laid in ashes one
uiriviug vurago ot B.OUU people, and turned
Ihe inhabitants houseless into the streets
to seek shelter iu lence corners. No provis
ion has ever been made, oris now making,
to reimburse the plundered citizens, liv the
law ot nations, a government makes no com
pensation for damages done by au inavadiug
army, unless such government bo victorious
when it always provides by treaty for pay
nient by the vanquished enemy. A toveru-
ment which neglects to make such provisions
on behalf ot Its plundered citizens is basely
negligent of its duty. A ouasi neace exists
between the late beligerents, the terms of
vvnicn are dictated wholly by Congress, whi-h
isiiniier tne control of the Republican party.
Nothing but tho proceeds of the confiscation
of a small portion of tho property of wealthy
rebels can be antlic to nay the damages in-
llicied by theso marauders, unless it be paid
out of thu treasury of the United States.
A few Republican meteors, always erratic
In their course, are fif ing through and ex
ploiting in the Republican atmosphere. They
attract sufficient public attentiou to enable
tiiem to assure tb amiable rebels who in
flicted this injury that they need fear no con
hscaiiun, that no body of any note in the
.suriu is in tavor ot imposing such puuish
nient, for the sake of remuneration or of jus
lice. I hey assure them that nothing shall be
taken from Aiken's estate of millions, from
Ilumptnn, Davis, or Faulkner, or from a
thousand others who arc still worth their
hundreds of thousands, to reimburse the loy
al men, North and South, who were plunder
ed of their estates, and your neighbors to
rebuild their humble tenements.
It is scarcely to be endured that Congress,
for two sessions, should sit indifferent to
these sufferings, and take no steps to enforce
theso rights. These remarks apply to larue
portions of .Maryland, of West Virgit.ia,
ittiio, iniliana, and Missouri, as well as to
the Slave States.
He who can patiently Ihten to that putrid
humanity we now see propagated, has more
command of himself than 1 have. Indeed, it
looks as if we were still to add to the burden
of onr taxation to defray tho exnenses of
transportation and the ovation of triumph
But I must stop, or I shall commit the
fault against which I have been warned.

A Plea for Permanent Peace.
Great r.ritiau is urging upon the Europeon
powers w hich have been bristling up with
war preparations, the propriety of a general
disarmament. This is a humane and bene
ficial recuiuiuendation, and it were adopted it
would reduce Europeon government expen
ses to a very gn at degree, beside ministering
lo the hapiness of the people, nnd ena
bling industry to resume its vocations, and
insure tho best interests ol each State. But
in order to ellect this ilesirnbbi object there
must be a general agrc eiio-nt among European
potentates to be sati-lied with things as
they are. They must be willing to renounce
nil projects of ambition, and resolve to be
contended with the greatness which Is only
to be assured by the pursuits of peace. And
therein lies the difficulty. At present France
and Prussia menace the peace of the contin
ent, because they are Continually increasing
their armies, and procuring the newest and
most ell'ective patterns of arms.
If Prussia augments her military forces,
France must do the same, and every lesser
power, uncertain of what way they mar be
come Involved by the quarrels of their neigh
bors, must be prepare ! for any icnntingeoey.
Herein lies the difficulty, and iillhough Ureal

among adjacent Slates, sho will fail in the
accomplishment ol her wish, simply because
other nations are seltlsh and ambitious. It

Let it be remembered that the in
f.miotM ltiili lection of the franchise
law, which dobnrn colored men from
holding otliee and sitting on juries is
the work of the conservatives.'
We have been asked by several persons
within the last few days, If Ve do not sup
pose that the Federal Government will pay
the Southern people lor their property. The
imnMoinn ia haiticr made on the minds of
many, wo learn, that If certain men cau be
elected tbey can get tho Government to pay
tho Southern people for their lost property.
This they By would reconcile the pooplo of
the South to the people of tho North. De
signing politicians may tell this story to th
people ir. order to obtain their votes, bnt it is
a false assumption. Who will pay them?
Tax the negroes to pay their old masters I
Never, Never I Tax tho North to pay the
leading rebels of the South for four long
years of civil war? Tax tho loyal people of
the country to pay men for trying to destroy
the Government of their country ? For filling
the laud with widows nnd orphans? For
imposing a debt of hundreds of thousands
of millions of dollars on tho country? Sev
ir! A'evrrf Ntvtrl Candidates who expect
to ride Into office by such false and delusive
promises to tho people, had better retire
from the contest at once. They are only de
ceiving the people, and that continually.
And never shall we have peace and prosperi
ty in the country ogaiu, until the people re
nounce the old intriguing rotlrn-hfurled poli
ticians who have lived aud fattened at the
public crib all Iheir lives. Tbey will ruin
the people forever, unless tho people, in their
wisdom, renounce them politically forever.
We do not believe that tho Federal Govern
ment will ever pay one dollar to tho people
of the South for all tho property destroyed
during thu war. The idea Is absurd tho
very thought a vuiu delusion. RiclimunJ AVw
