The Tax on Colored .lien. Aa erroneous impression, it prevailing in Ibis section as to the reason why the negroes do not pay a poll tax, and many Republi. tans whe ought' to bn belter Informed are throwing the blame on the present Legisla ture. We have been fit'ioently, In the past few weeks, gravely informed that the Le gislature had pttti'Ja for exempting the ne gro from paying poll tax. The rebels and more especially their allies, the conservatives, have circulated thii fuliebood, and deceived inny good men. It is time this malicious, mischief-making lie was nalitd to the wall, and, with its authors, erposed in all its hi'd eeotaess to tha scorn and contempt of eve ry Irne Vnion man in the country.

Tet there is no piper in the State which milt louder than the llnnner about the high taxes imposed on the "dear oppressed people." ow, let ns look at the lads in the ens. The Banner editors belong te the party which suB'aiued the "Lost Cause." It was but re cently they published a long,' glowing ac count of the obsequies of tho Rebel Gen. John II. Morgan, which took pbice in Lex ington, Ky., (more flimiliarly known in East Tennessee as the "General Rebel Horse Thief.")

This it charity "with a vengeance." Can this state ment be gainsayed? We appeal to the pres. ent gentlemanly Superintendent and hit worthy lady, who were among the .surTerors, if this is not substantially correct Where, then, it the consistency of these advocates of a barbarous foe In a barbnrons war? We have had occasion to remark heretofore that the Banner Is the ablest ditfoyat paper in the State, and oce of its editors, at lesst, has always shown to the writer of this arti cle marked respect, but, certainly, we cannot let. inch insinuations pass without notice. The Tennessee Legislature done for these poor blind people what they considered suffi cient for the present and we confidently be. licve they will do more as occasioa requires. They have not treated them as the friends of the Banner did In the past, and a patriotic people will commend them for what they have done. For the Union Khur. 1 . Ohio Wcslcyan to versify, IIos.

Mr Williams' Great Speech on Impeachment. Our readers should not fail to read 'he ex tract from Manager Williams' great speech on tbe impeachment. of Andrew Johnson, ot the first page of the Fluj. The Washington Chronicle, speaking of it says : " At a logical structure, it has the compactness and sjm melry of a Grecian temple combined with the solidity of a pyramid. It is, in short, irre sistibly convincing a complete answer to every argument which has been advanced, and, wo may safely say, to every one which can be advanced, in the President's defence, The Knoxville White Man's Con vention. The last lumber of the )!' says of this ttuprntfaua affair : "Pursuant to a pnblic notice, and after weeks of drumming np, the White Mae's Convention was held in tbe I otirt House la this city on Monday last. There were, all told,orM-rtr person's in attendance, fully on-half of whom were Radicals, attractrd through curiosity. The meetiog lasted about fifteen minutes."

Letter from Memphis. MKMrms, Tenn., April 37, 18G8 Edilort Inmn Hag ; In looking over the statistics of Tennessee, made in 1810, I wnt singularly struck with the population of Shelby County, which includes Memphis. Its popnlation then wnt only 14.000; while Itavid.Hon wat 80.000, Rutherford 24,000 Ac. Tbe centos of 1800 shows that in the prece ding decade, one single city in the I nitei $1101 has, outstripped Memphis: that it Cbicago. Ia former years the Southern States were devoted exclusively to eottoa and sugar production. Knropean emigrants sought hornet where food was cheapest, and the cost of living least. In the South the people were accustomed to buy bacon and beead from the Northwest, and thither Koto. peans and the poor of all American .Slates directed their course. With these drawbacks the growth of Mem phis even now amnios those who reflect that the whole system has been suddenly subvert ed, for to-day the population ia 70,000 and before 1870, 100,000 people will live on the Chicknaaw Rlaffs. Now, instead of a tingle planter entering the market and making purchases at whole, tale, we will toon have by proper emigra tion a multitude of farmers ; they will pnr chate -after the Bnt year of their coming, neither bread or meat; or any other pro, duction which a rich soil and fin climate may produce. These farmers will produce their own supplies ; and tbe density of pop ulation must necessarily advance more rapid ly ; and with tbe facilitiet of tbe great Mis sissippi liver and in radii of railroads, Memphis bas magnificent future, of which the State at large may well be proud. All that is wanted to effcrt these views com pletely it political stability: and no doubt that when JoknMn it removed from tbe bead of the natioa ; bis temporising influence de. stror.dwill give a quietus to the enrmies of loyalty, encourage more rapidly the class of agricultural emigrants desired, and the Stats of Tennessee will blssjom as tbe rose.

Under the caption of An Important Doc nment the Knoxville H'AiVof 'April 28th pub lishes th' following. It will be observed that Senator Fowler's signature ia affixed to the nirmorinl, the closing sentence of which is eery nignilieant ; Wo present an important document below. The Governor prepared the first draft of n proclamation, covering tbe wbnlo ground in this matter, the week before this Congres sional document wa received. He it pleased, however, to be bucked up in his views and purposes with such a document at this. The late militia, act, reducing the pay of pri vities and officers so low that men could not tone, it it no' tho purpose of the Governor to call out the troops under said act, bnt to call out otheiwise, and to rely upon the loy. ul people of the State to sustain him : ASinxr.Tos, 1. C., April 21, I8C8. Pkar Sir . Aa constituents identified with you in the success i.f your administration, we beg leave to call your attention to what cannot have escaped ;our notice, tho disor ders prevalent in certain localities in onr State. Lawlessness and violrnce have at tained alarming proportions. Peaceable eit Ixens are territi.d by threatening missives ; the sanctity of their homes is invaded, often in tbe hours of sleep ; their property it con signed to flames; some are seised and scourg ed and otherwise cruelly mistreated j others are shot dead, or hnngad, or subjected to some other form of murder and assassination. Punishment rarely follows, and in most in stances no form of legal redress is resorted to. On tbe .contrary, the victims of these outrages are maligned, and their characteri defamed by the perpetrators, whose conduct finds many to connive at it, and not few openly to justify it. Upon you, as the first Magistrate and pence officer of the State, devolves the duty, under the constitution and the laws, ol aeeiug these disorJcrs suppressed. Not tbe statute law merely, hut the common law, even without legislative enactments, clotbet you with, the very high powers. You do not bear the sword in vain. Tbe safety of the people is the supreme law ; and nothing less than the exercise of all the physical and moral foTce ol State, by tummoning to your aid, if nerd be, all the good people of every age, tex, col or and condition, will s.V.iafy its imperative requirements. The community mnst be protected at all hazards and at whatever cost. Happily for our beloved State, tbe exercise of tbit extra ordinary authority bat beecn required to rarely, indeed, that some are possibly una ware of its existence. We refer to it, there fore, not only by way of admonition to evil doers, but to shield yon, to far aa oar coun sel can do it, from the imputation of trans cending your just and legitimate powers, ia taking all necessary measures to suppress the maladies a'lHicting the people. We respectfully tnggest the propriety of organising and arming, under tbe recent act of Assembly, a tniall militia force, with judi cious and competent olliccrs, to be stationed at points where tbe civil law is found the least efficient, to repress and punish high handed crime. We know your indisposition to impose unnecessary burdens apoa our people, already oppressed with debt and im poverished war) and have the utmost confi dence that you will exercise your great offi cial powers within the limits of necessity, at demands of humanity. While we hope not to see our State government driven to de. pendente npon national protection, went the. same time, bepe sooa to see the moral in fluence of tbe national government exerted in its behalf and against its enemies. .
