your Masonic brethren, or any other hon est nwn. You did not dream of enfranchising the negro. Now, these things are not alluded to with any other intention than to bIiow to thinking men of all parties that it is idlo to predict what course a revolution will take. All that we can toll about them before they aro over is that they aro ter rible things. One other idea and I have done with this head : Sometimes a matter is to tho interest of one man and injurious to his neighbor. But this rulo holds only on a small scale. To illustrato : It is perhaps to tho interest of few office holder s that the Radical jarty bo continued in power ; and to the interest of a few would-bo office holders that they should not. But, as regards tho great mass of our citizens, although they do not sco alike, the measures that would bo beneficial to ono party would be beneficial to tho other.

Some good men are trying to impress upon their friends the importance of get ting through the campaign, particnlarly in Tennessee, without party collisions. A few go so far as to recommend that the Democratic party shall hold itself aloof from any participation in the election. We do not believe in quite so much amia ble acquiescence. If troubles occur dur iiig the campaign in Tennessee, they will be fjreed upon the people by our Scalla wug authorities, and the whole country can see that such is the case. But they will not be forced upon us. The Scallawags are holding very poor bands just now and they know it.
