The Impeachment of Johnson
Up to going to press on yesterday (Thurs
day) evening, the impeachment case was not
decided. Our special Washington City cor
respondent writes as follows : j
Washi no-rax rt. f Wn n isrve.
It is confidently expected that decision
n .narew jonn?oo s case will oa reached
before the 1 2th inst. Some even think by
Saturday the 9th inst. Whatever hopes are
entertained by Mr. Johnson's political sup.
porters, it is certain that his. family, taking
their cue from him. doubtless, hart long
ainco abandoned all hopes of his acquittal1,

.Manager Bingham closed bis great speech
for the posecution on yesterday evening. The

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. Why wiU'
Union men listen to or be deceived by these
graceless renegades? whose every word and
act since the war has been a lie, so barefaced
and ar the same time to transparent as to
merit the contempt rather (ban the notice of

"One of the few commendable, things ever
dune by tbe Radical Legislature, wjs the
handsome appropriation of five thousand dol
lars to pay house rent, teachers' salaries,
pnichase books, etc., besides the two hun.
dred dollars allowed annnnllv for the cloth

This sentence is intended for a tareottie rul

high taxes imposed on the "dear oppressed
people."

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

Tennessee as the "General Rebel Horse

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.

A short time ago, it was reported that from
one tbltil, to two-thirds of all th. students
in the. .Ohio Wesleyan University had left the

permitting a colored minister to eutkr cut-

We publish the above with pleasure, and
can assure eur renders that the ' Ohio Wee

ces that were brought to bear against this
Northern College and has returned to the

May success attend him. Mr. Maxwell, we are
credibly informed, has a datiKCter attending
the Oxford Female Collegein the same State.
This is what we like to sne ; and we hope
that the time it not tnr distant when stu

in doing this, a better feeling towurdd each

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,

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.

Kvery loyal man in Washington it pray.

The nhhs speeches of the managers and of tbe

A Memorial from onr Congres
sional Delegation to Governor
lirownlow.
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. .
Wo have the honor to be, very respectfully,
your vbcdieul servanti,
