Indians, by a process of ttrat- gms worked their way undiscovered, to 5rw Albany, and succeeded in forcing their way into the jail of that city anil murdering outright the Ueno brothers, awaiting their riul for an Ei press robbery on the Indian apolia and JeU'trsonville Rail Hoail. The Democratic journals of Tennessee have un dertaken to show that this is a parallel with the ordinary course of justice la our Stale tinder Kepublicao administration. Such I charge is the grossest falsehood. It is ma liciousncss of the deepest dye. It is down right prevarication. It is absolute lying. No Republican has ever interfered with the due rourse of Law and Justice. No places of im prisonment have ever been broken open and tba guilty been permitted to 0 "scot-free." No opportunity lias ever been lost to malign our new form of government and to make capital lor tbt rebels. The present State government has been held upas the consum mation of all political diabolism and wicked ness, as legalising all manner of crime, and any outrage perpetrated north of the Ohio aud east of the Potomac is seised upon to tarnish a parallel to a Ku Klui atrocity to show an equilibrium of morality as regards the two sections , or in other words, that the South with her discords, with her extreme lollies, and barbarous inhumanities, is as free irom the presence of the Evil one, as any sectioa of the country. Murder, rapine and arson have held a high earnirul in the South, unmolested and unchecked, and they have received their instigation and courage from rebel malevolence. Kepulilicaas North and South, are for law and order, Kebels and Copperheads in bitter oposition. Let us hare peace, say Republicans. Let Us have crime, Injustice an J violation of law, say Rebels and Democrats. This is precisely tie state of the cast. Carrier's Address. Patrons of the " East Tixxitsi!

The am and cry is raised from North to Souih, and from East to West, by the rebels and their sympathsers, that, taxttion with out representation, (enfranchisement) is un just; that it was tkit which bruuirht on our j revolutionary war with England, which lasted seven years, and cost many precious lives, and much treasure." We hold that such de claralivns as these, art foreign to the ques tion, aud therefore untrue. The idea of com punug the efforts of the rebels in the late w ar lu those of our fort-fatktrt, it political scri '.ye. Our revolutionary fathers were strug gling for civil and religia it freedom ; the relicts sought to overthrow, and destroy the sacrod instil itlous which our fathers had planted, and let up in their stead, the prin ciples of human slavery, aud tfiereby have a tlart-urthy lloveraiuent, where tLe colored people and the foor whites sheuld forever be utrj't. and recognized as property, to he Irani' tvrreu. and sold ita iibituirt, rerinit me to state a plain case, H Lieu the least cultured may understand. When a cituea of this State violates the criminal luws and is found guilty of " grand larcrry " bt is sent to the penitentiary lor several years, an I if he re mains there until bis time expires, he is ill frmekutj, and unable to bold ollice, although he is compelled by the law to pay taxes. This tvni ict who has paid the peualty tor violating thei iws (.f his country, has the same right 10 complain ol being di'Jrmchu'd as the tun for, and unrelenting rebel : yea, he has iu auitely a bem r right lo complain, he has oulr stolen a tew dollars worth ot proiierlv, whilst hi rebel trolkrr, bas not only taken property, but destroyed mauv valuable lives ; and made llianv homes iromr than ili-mlalt. Their crimes are of greater magnitude thau wat Cam's, who rose up In a i-tat of passion, and slew his brother AM. The Al mighty drnfraiKhlifl Cain, the first murderer, and he speut the remainder of his rays as "a fugitive and Vagabond 111 the earth, and wat uever afterwards permitted to associate with uny family, or congregation of people iu acts ut religious worship, These rebel firtaehtrt whose bands are stained with their "brothers blood, which crieth with the voice of seven fold thunder "from the ground," will never receive their just desert, until thev are treated like Cain their roie;'f.

It is presump tuous ia them, at this time, to agitate this question.

The Judge enters into a history of the .Methodist Church, as aa organization in this country, from its birth to the present time.
