In the res.mem, inere was a certain Captain Uundec. who was raiher .1 1 ftllAW ihW '.TZir ,emm wbornded himself nnV, lr- . could takeebim iu, and that he would re. C0raili nprinn in - ii ? z r cuaccivauie uia puise. l wa3 very intimate with far,,,:. Dundee, and so far from tUr,i ; 1.:-. erj suarp, 1 usea to abu?e him for his stupidity, au J waa ;alw'sysT chafliD- hie 1 r . . . ""U at tnesa, when Captain Dundee wag not present, "beta were made that I could not pass an evening in his company dressed as a lady without his discovering tbe trick. I bet that I could do so. 31any oacers took, mv side, and at last it ended inery heavy fce'tWindeed being made, not by me, but, what wan worue, by my friends, for I felt that their losing or gaming almost a fortune, d)- pcuucu cutueij ou me. trie uay drew near these beta were doubled. I quite trembled for the result. I may mention that, though I did not know" it, almost all tnese beta were fictitious, and only proclaimed for the sake of keeping me ud 10 inemara. in iact, those concern ed thoughtlessly wanted to have a jolly jam, aau were airaia 01 my backing out. Aa it was, I felt that about 15,000 in bets depended on my getting through the evening safely in my assumed char acter aa a lady. . , F" Captain- Dundee married a. young larky, care-for-cotbing, gtick-at-nothing Irish girl.- I do not at all mean to say that the was really bad j but, from thoughtlessness, from a not over-refined nature, and from very exubersnt, uncon trolled spirits, ahe would rush into a scrape, little tbinkin; orcarlng about the consequences, or how she should get out of it successfully. The bet as, that the first evening Mr. Fenwick - could get an invitation for himself and an imaginary niece, Misa Fenwick, .to dine with the Dundecs, I was to personate, or attempt to personate, the niece; and the said bet, moreover, was to the effect that I should successfully deceive Captain Dundee till such time as the party separated, how ever late the hour might be. W i tho u t my kn 0 wledge, Mrs." D u nd ee was let into tbe secret; hence all my trouble. She, in her wild Irish way, quit entered into tbe joke, and at once' determined to make confusion worse confounded. For soon a note came, atating that Capt. and Mrs. Dundee requested the pleasure of Mr. and iiiss Fenwick to dinner in a quiet way on the 10th in stant. Only one or two brother officers ..tu. r.Li -,v,..iwj,1fc 1 Kemcmber, 1 thought that thousands depended on the result, and that Mrs. Dundee was as ignorant , as her husband of my intended appearance. Imaeine me with a profusion of false black curls; a llower or two scuck. nere and there ; no end of lady's jewelry rings, ear-rings, broach, Lc. , a thin muslin dress, with high body ; my face skillfully paioted. In fact I was altogether, very well made up by a firstrate hand sent for from Dub lin. Partly to keep up my courage and get me up to the mark, and partly because I knew that in my assumed character I must not drink much wine, I imbibed a considerable quantity before I started. Moreover, in a secret pocket, concealed a amall flask of brandy,.: with which -1 hoped to be able to keep up my spirits on the sly. At table, I played tbe part well. I talked and flirted, chattered about dan cing so forth, and protested I was mad about balls. Poor wretch that I was I wish I had held my tongue; I was un wittingly rushing to destruction. I drank as much champaigne aa I dared in my assumed character, and thought every thing was going all riht, and that my friends were quite vfY1 to win their mon ey. Scarce had thStloth been removed, when Mrs. Dandcesaid: "I have a pleas ing surprise for all you good people. A few days ago, I received an invitation from Sir George and Lady Clonmell to a ball at their house this evening, with per mission to bring any of my friends. Sir George lives twelve, miles off. Dundee has secured the' large omnibus from the inn, and ordered four horses, and we are to start at nine o'clock. We can all go together; we shall have a jolly evening, and I am delighted to think that you will be able to enjoy yourself, Jliss Fenwick." Oood gracious ! bow my heart sank within me. My bet held good till tbe time we separated. My friends must lose their money I could never get through a ball, I knew. I said my dress was high and would not do for a ball. ' My maid, said Mrs. Dundee, "shall dress yon in one of my evening d reuses. 'q No. that she shao t, I almostshriek ed out; "if I must go, I will go just as I ac JL attsoLdelicat thatih4 doctors will not allow me to wear a low dress." i "Perhaps, dear, you would like her to dress your hair differently; she is very clever ; or to put another wreath on your head ?" "Oh, no, thankyoir.'t said, I; and most bitterly did I inwardly abuse my luck, bat I almost gasped: "If you had a spare room where I could wash my hands aud ust put jny hair straight for myself, I should be very much obliged." j I was shown into room, and sat down, the very picture, I am sure, of despair. It now began 'to flash", across me, too, that what was, to say tbe least, a not over-creditable joke among a few larky brother officers, would be very dishonor able if practiced onsociety at large; that it woald be very wWg of ma to go to a bait at Sir George's; uaiedaji young lady; that I might be tbe means of aa intentionally causing paia and shame to some ladies. O dear 1 I was doabting whether I should be taken suddenly ill and have myself conveyed home, or whether I should scad for Mrs. Dundee and make a clean breast of it little thinking that all the time the wretch knew my fix. But then my friends woald lose fifteen-thoosand potajidavj Or horri blal Jastat that moment my hand ritt. luckily touched the pocket in which waa my flask.-? To palb it eat and draia it. was only th? work of a moment or two. ! y courage reiurnea atoore; myapmia rose only too5 rapidly; I would go through with it-7-I would win.- My scruple van ished In thin air I forgot them.- I was not drunk, but terribly exettsd.-? .y ,Soon tho lady'a maid entered with hot water, brushia, Ac. ,1 remember I felt ery much joclined to chuck her under tuecbin, and ask' her to get me' some more brandy ton the sly, The mere thought, bowerer, eteadied toe at once as u su-uck ma Aow nearlv I bad aide mesa of the wfiv!tj matter.

My spirits bad again suuk to zero ; 1 icareu 1 fcuuum uoi -do a&ie to Keep up my character, au-l in stinctively felt that I was 1 doing wrong.' Oh, those horrible beta f r . There were several of thc.lJth in the room. 1 danced with . tty . . Uno was in my se cret, tbe other was not. ' Any one who h ad overheard us would have been amaz ed at the conversation betweeu my part ner who was ia the secret and myself: "Fred, uiy boy, when will supper come? Do take tne to come room -where I ran get some - bitter beer or poxnethm to drink." " Can't do it, old fellow, at any, price; you 'would be found out, , and ,1 should lose my money ; you must get on as best you can without drink.'' ; r r s " But I ant dyin with thirst ; I can't hold oat till supper time, and ray pluck is oozing out at uiy fingeraV ends,- for I feel I am in a mess, and I am sure I shall Jut my foot Into it, and be discovered, if do not get some stimulant to keep mex np." .-;- .- j s Can't help it, my boy you must do your best. 1 tell you what you bad bet ter do smuggle your flask out of your pocket, and give it to me ; I will fill it with sherry ; and then, while you and I take one turn together on the terrace which propriety allows, you must con trive to driuk it. ...',.. Soon supper was announced, and I felt better. . If, however, my partner, who was Fred, bad not been iu the secret, be would have been astonished to see how very much I ate, and bow many glasses I drank on the sly when I thought no body was noticing.. Fred watched on one side of the table, and I on the other. When be thought no one was looking, be would give me a kick ; and if I was satisfied that I was not watched ' on my side; down" went tho champagne in the Wtiengui me company oegan to dis s . 1 .1.1 a perse, and rather quickly, too, for tbe rain waa pouring, and an awful, thunder storm coming on. 1 beard more than pne anxious parent hasten , their, charge away witu: "tome, come, my dear ; you must come cow, or; as papa says, , we shall be obliged to" stop here all night" The word' ; did not, strike . me, vcrv much at tbe moment, but'did they not afterwards? Soon the storm ' broke; it was eomething frightful and "after tbe seventy1, ot the thunder and lightning had spent itself, tht-raiu came down in torrents, and gave every sign of continu ing to pour iu that way for hours. Sir George and Lady 'Clonmell would not hear of tb few guests ' who remained going home. Such weather!" no one ever say anything like it t the river swol len, tbe ford impaasabla. Tbe bouse was very large; tbe young ladies could sleep J two in a dcu j gooauess, now; my ueart sank the bachelors; mustrpugVit'at once i the cushions in, the smoking-room and tba billiard-room were very sotu uA lew desperate, and, aa tboughi, happy" people- would go.

General Maney as teen doiug my talking for years, and now leave that tak to him. lie per- fectly unJerstnnds my feelings and will express them to you far better ., than I could. I repeat that I am thoroughly in earn- east in the part I take here to-day. It is ot my custom to come to town otten, ud I have paid no attention to politics, at within the lust few days. I have seeu state of things which I do not at all like aud which appear to me to seriously threutcu the peace of the State. General Maney We mean that, no matter what there may be m the past, we still love the country of our nativity, J honestly and earnestly desire" pros perity, and the safety, houor a&J' be ing of, its residents, without reference to difference of 'political opinions or color., This being an honest sentiment with us, we cannot arrogate to ourselves superior virtue io this respect, but accredit you crentlemen. with eoual proper love of our I common land and iu whole people.' If I correct io this premise then we are. war- ranted In the conclusion that there ia no necessitv for resort to anv violent orldential election, he would assemble his evea extraordinary means for protection and safety to society, since if all of us desire society's protection and safety there will be none to disturb iu I cau but believe an interchange of our opin ion between representatives of the two sides to tbe late unhappy conflict will tend to tbe conviction of each that the other ib not so dangerous as might be conceived in the absence of such inter- course. 1 riankiul. ceutiemen. lor vour 1 . . . . .. j.

I We will not pretend any and ever disor der shall be tolerate!, rather than organ ize such force, but we believe that it is best to fimt ee if wo o.odoI guard s-gatust mewwerwiiennst?lan by resort lw this objectionable means. And at this point it is proposed for ourselves certainly, and we think it is the proposition . of all we have conferred with, to regard and obey tbe laws not as we would desire them, but as they are in letter upoa tbe statute book, until tbe same be repealed. Iu a word,' it is our conclusion that the speediest way to obtain tbe laws we may desire, is to obey the laws as they are. If in these statements we represent tbe masses with whom we were identified in the late conflict, then certainly there is no necessity for resort to the extraordi nary means of State militia to preserve peace. In what we say we do not pro pose only to express the particular opin ions of ourselves now with yeu, but on careful consideration believe we but say what tbe men who bore guns and knap sacks during the war will fully sanction. A State military organization is an ex traordinary and we think, (guard it as carefully as you will) ia its very nature, to an cxteut, is dangerous. Ursnting the mass cf those enlisting in it to be actuated by best motives, it yet increases the opportunity lor persons bavins; mal ice agaiust others, by enlisting or ganization, to wreak their vengvTyTun der pretense of duty, and so haTetter chances for escaping penalties for wrong doing. -Moreover, soldiers pay and ra tions may induce thriftless aud worthless men to come in from other States. We earnestly wish emigration but not of this sort. 'On the contrary) if circumstances will warrant legislation, "which indicates the law is supreme and sufficient for pro tection to persons aud property, we may expect an ingress of good citizens, who will 6eek a society of law and order, but avoid anarchy or even the indication of it. This law and order seeking popula tion we desire to welcome. Upoa our fertile fields and in our rich mineral binds there is room for their prosperity. Gentlemen, we recognize in full all the State authorities. We have no pur pose to overthrow them, and believe there is no such purpose wita" others. Wa propose dutiful submission to the laws and all lawful authority. We be lieve a land so favored by nature should be tenanted by au united and1 contented people, and we are before you to ' pledge our honest and best efforts to secure this end. ' We will not presume to advise a course of legislation, but we are here with honest heat ta, and if it be thought by any of your committee that we can impart any light or information desira ble to you, we are reaoy to maxe nonest answers to questions yon may propose.

' - j , Mr. Medlia - (Representative from Madison) I am proud and glad to have met with these eood and true men, but even the Confederate uenerais camp bell for instance have lately made speeches which were certainly of a very threatening character. , General Jackson used very inflammatory language in a speech delivered not long ago ia our part of the country, and I heard that General Forrest had said at Humboldt that if the militia were called oat to prevent the disfranchised from voting ia the Presi- old army and crush them out. Ia any own county of Madison tbe course of the Democrats has been tuca as to mate me seriously, fear for my life.

I feel that you hare come as honest mea ; that yoa are here with aa honest desire to avert trouble. Your object is peace peace. 7 We de sire no conflict. We have aot come here to raise a force with which to overawe and devastate the State, but to counsel together ia the kindett spirit. No man has admired more than I have the chivalrous courage of the '' Confederate soldiers during the war, nor their con duct since its close; I mean, of coarse, the - honest, fighting soldiers who be lieved that they were engaged ia a just cause, however mistakes they have beea. I believe with Gea.

Nor caa I think that Andrew Johnson, whose career is so intimately identified with tho hiatyf of Tenaessee, will prove unmindfalysTher wants at this critical juncture. srWith a sufficient force of Uni ted State troops aay necessity for calling out the militia would be obviated, aad there are aow bat few left who would want to fire oa the old flag. As to such outrages as that ' recently committed on Senator Wyatt, I eaa aot find language severe enough to deaoucs the perpetra trors, aad I know that Geaeral Cheat ham aad these other gcatleiuee feel aa I do. , .

That : same night abend of one hundred Keklax rode armed through the city. . We did aot dare to report the bill after that, for there would have beea no chance for its passage. AH we ask of yoa aow is that yon obey this fraachiie sad other law until they are repealed. Should the masses remain quiet, I believe that tbe Legislature will at . its aeat session be sare to favorably consider the matter. If General Cheatham will address the peo ple ia my two counties, I will take pleas ure ia accompanying him. ; Mr. Masoa (ilepresentatlve from Roane) Like the member from Carroll, I hare beea depressed ia raiad coacera ing the sitaatioe.
