THE HEUF.L CO.WE.MIO.V. We find upon exntnining the antece dents of the rebel convention, that it is a body nearly every member of which has either fought against the United States as a rebel soldier, or held, or sought to hold, some official position under the treasonable, rebel govern ment. Many of its members were lend ing ofiiccrs in the rebellion which at tempted to suck the life-blood of the nation's heart. Such another body of disloyal leaders has not assembled to gether in Tennessee since the war. Many of them have the blood of inno cent IVum men upon their skirts. Shall such men as these be the rulers of the loyal people of Tennessee ? Shall they make laws to govern the Union sol diers of our State the widows and or phans of those noble and gallant heroes who were slain by these very men? Watchman, tell us of the night ! THE MST M.Mt IS UROKE.V From the commencement of politi cal troubles in Tennessee up to the present time, we have persistently warn ed the public that whenever the reins of government were seized by the lead ers of the disloyal element, they Would overturn every vestigo of free govern rm'lit, nnd repeal every statute enacted for the protection of the loyal citizens of our Uommoiiwcalth against the de predations of tlic evil-disposed, whose malignity o Vederal nuthority still burns within their breasts with unaba ted ardor. And so it is. Step by stop the rebel Legislature ("composed ol individual-, who were elected by the gross est frauds ever perpetrated in nny State election.) has repealed hw after law until the Union man is left to the tender mercies of marauding jfiands of masked murderers and desperadoes. They created a Convention, which has finished the infamous work by striking dowi) our loyal judiciary, to make room for men of their own crew men steep ed in treason, whose hands nrc drip ping with the blood of Union soldiers. This last link' between the loyal people of Tennessee and 'protection to their lives and property is now broken their last hope has vanished, so far as Ten nessee is concerned. If protection is not vouchedsafe by the Federal Gov ernment, and the flood of high-handed revolution nnd the violation of law flopped, we tire henceforth the serfs menial slaves of our enemies, unci the enemies of the National Government. great is diakvl ui' the jli'1ii:ki.4.s.

Yes, the Journal' idea of necessary education is, that if the teachej has graduated in the Ilcbcl Army that is sullicient.
