In some of the border slave states tbe ques tion of admitting the colored people to vote at the polls is dow earnestly discussed, and those who favor this measure recommend it as ouly a return to an old custom, which was but recently abolished by the slaveholder I’arsou Brownlow gives, in a recent number of his uewspajx^, the Knoxville Whig, some instructive aud curious facts about the negro vote iu Tenuessee. showing that thirty years ago there was uo repugnance in that state to free colored men voting. They were first dis" franchised by the Constitutional Convention of 1835: "Iu the convention that formed the first con stitution ol Tennessee, the question arose as to who should exercise the right of suffrage in tiic state. Slaves were held in Tennessee While she was yet a territory; and a fact not generally kuowu is this—a majority of the delegates who framed the constitution were slaveholders. In fixing the qualifications of voters, ail "free citizens” were designated as proper persons to vote. An amendment was offered to insert the word "white” alter the word Iree. This brought up the question of the right of free negroes to vote. The vote was taken upon the amendment which con- ! leiuplated the exclusion ol negroes from the polls, and the amendment was lost by a de cided vote. The first constitution of the state, therefore, declared Iree negroes to be citizens, aud gave them the right of voting, which they exercised lor many years, and were election eered with by our politicians aud dema gogues for their votes. John Bell, in a close- j )y contested race for Congress in tbe Nash- ' ville district, when he defeated Felix Grundy, , owed his election to the votes of free negroes, 1 there being several hundred in his district. 1 “Andrew Jackson was popular with the ne groes on account of his bravery and his eulo gy upon negro soldiers at New Orleans, and when hs defeated Colonel John Williams be- 1 fore tile was on- 1 Jv by seven votes, anu these seven votes were gained for Jackson before the people by the negro voters of the counties sending them. “Governor Carroll w as a very popular mau with the negroes, and could come more close ly to the thing of uniting their votes than any man in the state. At one of his closely con- j tested elections, a frieud of his led a proces- i siou of sixty or seventy negroes to the polls at one time, who all voted for the old war-horse. ! We notice that some of the northern news papers which copy Parson Browulow’s article do not credit liis assertions. We thin'r t worth while, therefore, to print here the clause in the Tennessee constitution of 1796, which secured to colored men the right to vote at the polls. “Abt. III. Sbc.I.— All freemen oftheage of twenty-one and upward*, possessing a free hold in the county where he may vote, and and beiug an iuhabi'.tant of any one county within the state six mouths immediately pie ceediug the day of election, shall ho entitled to vote for memliers of the General Assembly : for the county iu which they shall respective ly re.-ide.” L uder this constitution every free negro in I the state who owned an acre or half an acre of land, or a town lot twenty feet square, voted, forty years—till 1833—for county, state and federal officers, for sherifl, representative in the legislature, governor, congressmen, and Pren dentofthe United States. Mr. McEwen, a well-known citixe’u of Nashville, a native of Tennessee, wrote last summer to the Nashville Union the following remiuisccnce of the exer cise of this right. “In the election for state officers, governor, ifce., in lis-7,1 had in my employ a free negro. On the day oi the above election he asked the privilege of accompanying me to the polls, wishing me to certify liis freedom. I did so. j 1 saw hitr. vole for governor” This colored man voted for Gen. Sam Hous ton. John Bell boasted that he was twice el- I eotf d by negro votes. But Tennessee is not the only slave state w hose free negroes have exercised the right of 8 lfTrage. They were permitted to vote iu No. rarolina nut il 1833, when in that state also the ■ institution was revised, and the colored peo !e weir- disfranchised. The Nashville Union discussing thi question last year, wrote that ?vuator Douglass, iu the debate on the adrnis- | I sion of Minnesota into the Union, stated as an historical incident (and was not contradict I ed by the North Carolina Senators present) I that a distinguished North Carolinian emanci 1 patei a large number of negroes in order to make them voters, to elect him to the legis lature of the state. fN. Y. Evening Post.] “ Hon. Cave Johnson, Postmaster-Ueneral under a former democratic administration, has been seen, in his early political contests in Tennessee, when he used to set ve in Con gress during the administration of John Quin cy Adams, leading negroes to the polls, arm in arm. The young scions now in the rebel army must permit us to tell them, in frank ness, that their fathers used to go to the polls in this state—and even before they w ere born —side by side with the black negroes, and i vote for governors, congressmen, and other civil officers.” Mr. Ilrowulow takes from the Nashville Times another case, which occurred in the | election of delegates to the Secoud Coustitu : tional Convention in 1835: “ It also happened in the couutv of Wilson in Middle Tennessee. The notorious Robert M. Burton was a lawyer of prominence, a ■ proud slaveholder, and an aristocrat related | to the slaveocracy of that county. The ne groes became alarmed a' the proposition I made by some of the candidates to disfran I eliise them in the then approaching conven tion to revise the constitution. Burton ran as the friend of thfe negroes, and pledged him self to stand by them and advocate their rights. lie received something less than four hundred negro votes, while his majority over his competitor was about half that, showiug that he was returned to the convention by ne gro votes. To his disgrace Burton betrayed i the negroes, and voted to disfranchise them. 1 For let it be remembered that negroes were | never disfranchised in Tennessee until it was done by tbo Constitutional Convention of i 1835.” The Cause of the War. "The curse causeless shall not come."—[Bible. Mn. Editok :—In your leader of Monday, 35th inst, 1 llud the following sentence in ref erence to the present war: “It is unquestion ably one of the most remarkable, unreason able, wicked, strange and causeless rebellions that has happened since the angels rebelled in heaven aud lost their first estate.” Of tbe general spirit of that declaration I have nothing to say. But against tbe unqual ified use of the word “causeless,” in that con nection, I must earnestly protest. And I do it liecause of the practical effect of such state ments upon the public mind. And what is that effect? It is “unquestionably” to endorse and give currency to the superficial and false notion, that, as touching the cause of the war, ; “ice the people of tbe free States” have no responsibility, are not at alt accountable for its costs or consequences, aud therefore have nothing to do but conquor tbe rebels, and then sing glory hallelujah, aud go “inarching on” with flying colors. Tbe idea is not only false, but like all other self-deceptions, exceedingly peuicious, espec ially at this crisis, when the disposition is so universally manifest to ignore our own ac : acuntability, by charging all the blame upon • others. What should we thing of a merchant who should fit out a piratical craft, with the under standing that he is to share the profits aud do so while successful, but when she is captured endeavors to cancel his guilt by denouncing the crime and aiding iu the execution of the officers and crew ? And where is the differ ence ? Mainly iu the stand points from which we view the two cases. To see aud judge the faults of others, is very easy ; but to look with in and pass impartial judgement in our own case, is one of the most difficult things iu the world. Let us subdue the rebel-, hut uot for get that we are accessories before the act. For I maintain that from, say 1830 to 1880. there was not a year in which the people of the free States could not have initiated measures that would have put civil war iu this country be yond tbe reach of humau or infernal possibili ty. But it will be said this statement must be qualified by an “if.” I admit there is an “if, in tbe way,” and our business is to locate it where it belongs “It the people had been suf ficiemly informed,” &c. If they were not so iuformed, why were they uot? It wiil not be denied, I think, that the umni-takabie rela tion between the acts ol our Government, , (which are the acts of the people) and our present trouble, was as clearly perceived by very many persons, for the last 30 years, as it is by any of us to- l»y; or that tlio-e persons, many of them labored with a zeal and fidelity aud perseverence, commensurate if possiole with the magnitude of the issues involved, to diffuse, and to impress that knowledge upon the minds of the people. And if the two main channels of informa tion, thro’ the people, had been open for the transmission of such truth, viz: The pulpit and the press, w here tbeu would have been the lack of information? I will risk the re sponsibility of saying that If two-thirds of the clergy iu the free States had been as true and faithlui, as were a small minority of them during that period, they would not now be i under the painful necessity of substituting the bloody go-pel of war, for the gospel of peace and good wili to men. And if the press, re ligious and secular, had been as out-spoken and earnest in the advocacy of the truth, then j as now, their daily and weekly sheets would not now be freighted with daggers to pierce the souls of millions, iu their once happy homes. Again you say it is one of the most strange rebellion, <&c. That is true; but the ! strangest thing about it. to mv mind, is that the people North, especially the intelligent ' portions, and more especially those occupying the responsible position of teachers of the people, in any capacity, could, under the in spiration of the god Mammon, political ambi tion, party ainnosity and sectarian zeal coin- j bined, succeed in so putting out their own eyes, for the time being, as not to be obliged to see, from the nature of the seed being sown, what the harvest must be. If the South sowed the seed, the North watered it and , hedged it about with legislative enactments to protect it from the raids of w ild Fanatics; or what was the same in eflect, “let it alone,’' and cried hands off, trembling lest radicalism should derange the delicate working of some religions, (falsely so-called) pecuniary, politi cal or social machinery in which we were per sonally and deeply interested. “But why dwell upon the past?” Because “we are verily guilty concerning our brother, in that tee saw the anguish of Ids soul when he besought us aud we would nut hear; there fore is this distress come upon us.” And because the first step toward removing this distress should be, not unhj lighting our companions iu guilt, hut reformation in our setces. Aud the first step tow aids gt-nuiue reformatiou is to gain a clear perception ot the nature aud extent of our guilt and re sponsibility. I care not how much people fast and pray, both saints aud sinners; if unaccompanied by rigid self examination aud impartial self judgment, such services, like the faith that is ! substituted for good works on the score of economy, Is insulting to Heaven and a mock ery tosuflering humanity. A mere chauge of opinion, or of practice i even, under a change of circumstances, does ! uot necessarily prove a reformation such as is needed. If so,the above merchant, who lilted out the pirates, and shared their plunder as j long as he could, is a reformed man as soon as j the crew are captured; for then, to ward oil ! suspicion from himstlf, he is loudest in de nouncing them. Does he not really believe, yea, know, that | i their crime is infamous ? Superficiality, and consequent self-decep tion, I hold to he the most serious of a! I obsta- i cles iu the way of our moral anil spiritual i elevatidn, both individually and nationally.— . And when we become truly relormed we shall < find abundant opportunities to mauilest the 1 | change in righting other wrongs besides i Southern rebellion, for then we shall not have l to w ait till a reform measure becomes popu- 1 lar before we shall dare look at it. i A Mechanic, j j --- Commencement Week at Brunswick. While ou my way iu the cars to this village of magnificent distances, I had been conjur ing up some set phrases about the dust I ex pected to tacit per sc, but ou arriving, the thunders began to roll, the lightenings to flash and the rain to descend, and what a glo iions shower upon this village plain! So not a word about dust, thanks to a kind Provi dence. Last Sabbath afternoon, Prof. Packard, a fixture of old Bowdoin, and a good one too, gave the Baccalaureate sermon. Ilis subject was “Obedience to Law,” and eloquently and learnedly lie handled il. The discourse was an admirable one and gave great satisfaction to all who heard it. Monday evening, the prize declamation by the Junior Class took place, aud the young gentlemen acquitted themselves very hand somely. Tuesday afternoon Walter Wells, Esq., of Portlaud, delivered an oration, and Kev. Eli jah Kellogg, of Boston, a poem before the Literary Socities. The subject of the oration was “The Inexorable Law of Nature.” The gestures, action, attitudes and looks were all very well, hut his articulation was not so well, and bis voice somewhat feeble. So far as the latter is concerned, nature is inexora ble, aud did not give him stroug luugs, but the former might be greatly improved by a little attention aud practice. The poem was quite smooth, and the language aud illustra trations well chosen, but what the particular theme was, on which the poet rung so many changes, or variations, is more than I can tell. I will characterize it as an old doctor of this place was wont to characterize other perform 1 auces, ‘‘De omnibus rebus et tjuibus turn (dids.” It is uot at all classical, nevertheless, | il is expressive. The exercises were enliven ed by some excellent music from the Germa ! nia Band. 11*1. .. r a .1 il _ n__»r i r<i where the perlormances took place, and look ed upon the interior of the building, it seem ed as if I were in some Roman Cathedral. 1 gazed upon the sides, and almost imagined I saw the confessional boxes, through the lat tices of which some Bridgets were whisper ing into the priests' ears the sins they had committed. There, too, was the “dim, reii ! gions light,” and the darkened windows threw a sombre shade over the whole scene, and to complete the picture, hundreds of ! kerosene lamps were burning in the afternoon and answering for wax candles. But soon I awoke from this dream and saw a brilliant galaxy of ladies and oceans of crinoline. The house was handsomely decorated with star spangled banners, and the walls, pillars. ! posts and “criukledom-cum-crankiedoms” hung with festoons of red, white and blue. But to be serious and thoughtful upon the subject, why did the people of Brunswick nuild a church of such architectural propor tions? Why did they employ an architect that had nothing in his head but some confus ed ideas of dark windows, dismal aisles, one | sided galleries, fluted pillars and strange al coves? Well, there is no disputing about j matters of taste. Men have a constitutional right to build just such a church as best suits ) them. But the question arises, are they all now satisfied ? 1 think not, and if they had the work to do over again they would proba bly adopt some different plan and employ some other architect. But let that pass. Kveuing catne and the glorious rain con tinued and streams of soft water flooded the streets, such streams as make glad the hearts of washerwomen. I hope you had as much in the Forest city. It did rain splendidly, but that did not keep the people away from the concert by the Germania Baud, assisted by Adelaide l'hillips. I need not say the music was excellent, for everybody knows such artists always discourse first rate music. The church was well packed aud the concert entirely satisfactory. Wednesday is Commencement Day proper. The following was the order of exercises. The graduates are young men of very good talents. Those who spoke performed their parts exceedingly well. There was moregood speaking than is usually heard on such occa sions. The parts were most admirably com mitted. I did not hear the voice of a promp ter dutiug the whole exercises. The compo sitions were high toned and full of patriotism. Hundreds of boquets were thrown upon the stage by the ladies in the galleries, which were eagerly snatched up by the young students.

The corporation dinner was got up in ex cellent style, and some three hundred hungry raeu partook of it. President Woods sat at the lead. After the dinner and the singing of i>ld St. Martin's, President Woods made a ew remarks, and then called on Gov. Cony, who responded in a very happy manner. Gen Shepley was then called up and made a biiefj jioriueut and patriotic speech, which was re vived with great applause. The President then made a few remarks complimenting the graduating class in high serins and alluding to some donations recently nade to the college. He said a few days ago MO,000 was given to the college by two geu .lemen, whose names he did not mention,— He also spoke of another donation, the largest sver made to the college by one man. He hen ealled up Mr. H. II. Boodyof New York, vho made an excellent speech, brief and to ' he point. This is the gentleman who has liven this day to the college, the generous utn of filty thousand dollars, with a promise ' if more one of these days, if this Is made a j ;ood use of. Several other speeches were nade at the table and all seemed to enjoy hemselves. On the whole the exercises have * «‘en of a high character and show that Bow loin College is one of our best and most lourishing institutions. i ( Battle before Petersburg-^ Casual; We in Maine Regiments. The New York papers contain lull parti culars of the great battle of Saturday, be lore Petersburg and tbe repulse of our troop-. All agree that a mistake Las been made by some one, perhaps by several, but tbe general feel ing, as indicated by tbe different army corres pondents, is that the schemes of Gen. Grant were well aud judiciously planned, and that the result is to be attributed to a blunder on the pat t of some of those entrusted with the execution ol the plans. The correspondent of the Times says: lie does not know who is to blame, and that a military tribunal must decide the point. Further, he states that the blunder is not ir reparable, and that one ol its worst consequen ces is the delay which must necessarily pre cede further operations. The affair of Satur day has, he says, “lost to us the labor of a mouth's preparation, and, worse than all this, lias sacrificed thousands of valuable lives. But the result does not dishearten the Army of the Potomac, and it should not depress the people. The soldiers who fought on Saturday have received the baptism of blood on other fields, ami know how to bear reverses man fully, as they bear successes modestly. They bate not a jot of heart or hope, and they only ask as the lesson to the country from to-day’s mishap that their thiuned ranks shall be promptly reinforced. Tbe army is still unfal tering in its faith, aud will try and try again until the day ol decisive victory.” The following is a list of casualties in Maine regiments: Third Maine.

At the present moment, when the flame of war, kindied in Europe, flickers uncertainly, and none cau prophesy whether it is d stiued soon to expire without further mischief, or to blaze up in a general conflagration,audspread its ruin widely round, it is interesting to know something of the lorces which the several powers may bring to the contest.

The Overland Telegraph to Eussia. In the midst of war a work of peace anj Civilization has been steadily growing. The telegraphic project to unite this country with Russia has entered into the stage of real work. All the impediments have been over come, and Mr. Collins, conjointly with the Western Uuion Telegraph Company, has al ready commenced work. The wire will be carried round Cape Horn to San Francisco in four ships. The fleet will reach San Fraueisco this lall. Our govern ment has detailed a man-of-war to assbt in the enterprise. Mr. Collins hopes that in two years from autumn the two continents w ill be uuited. The capital of ten millions of dollars for Ibis trans-continental line has been subscribed in the United States, ami the Russian govern ment builds ou its own account the line from Petersburg to Nikolaef ou the river Amoor. The Invasion.—The burning of Cham aersburg, says the Philadelphia Press, was ail let of wanton cruelty almost unparalleled ill She war, and certainly only surpassed by such rillanies as the massacre at Fort Pillow.— What military advantage did the rebels gaiu >y this new triumph over the pitiful remnant rf mercy which it is the boast ol modern war o retain, and which makes the great ditl'er ;uce between civilized and barbarous nations a their battles? Positively none. The iuva lioii has not been aided in any w.iy, aud the lole result of the outrage is, that a flourishing own is destroyed, and eighteen hundred nou loinbatants made homeless and penniless.— the very fact which should have obtaiurd nercy for the town—its helplessuess and the lou-resistauce of its inhabitants—iusured its uin. Cowardice could go no further, if that la cowardice, indeed, which is a daring of he scorn of all upright minds, and requires a leculiar courage which very few meu pos MS.

The original cost of the structure was 840,000. Now that water is plenty it is expected that the price of milk will decline—the cost of watering it being so much less than hereto fore. aTThe last words of Washington Wilks, one of the editors of The Morning Star, London who died recently while speaking in public, were: “ The great American Republic ”—at which point death closed his lips forever. 12TA servant girl, hearin g the lady of the house ask her husband to bring “Dombey and Son with him when he came home to dinner, laid two extra plates on the table for the sup posed visitors.

SP'I'hc .tew \ork Times don’t believe the story of the great western conspiracy. It says ‘‘over half a million ot men, some of them mar ried duuhtless, are a great many to keep a dead secret.” -if "One lady at Saratoga boasted recently of drinking utentttn tumblers full of water before breakfast. She must have been very full breasted for au invalid particularly, after such a feat, -jtT I he philologist will be interested in the new word “populicide” which, odd as it sounds, is quite as correct a derivation as “regicide,” or the cognate words “fratricide” and “purri cide.” jf* “There is no place like home!” said a * brainless fop the other day to a pretty youug lady. “Do you really think so?” said the 1 young lady. “Oh, yes,” was the reply. “Then,” 1 Slid calico, “why don’t you stay there ?’’ 1 Grocers say the sale of tea, coffee, sugar, [ i beef, pork, butter, &c., is reduced as the price 1 increases.

If any body happens to catch a codfish sporting the ar- 1 tide, he may learn the owner’s name at that office. SyAn Irishman fishing in the rain, was ol>- " served carefully keeping his line under the arch of the btidge.

SSTThe llaugor Whig says that on Tuesday morning Provost Marshal Davis arrested Geo. II. Starrett at Augusta, by order of Major Gen eral Dix. Starrett lived at Richmond when the war broke out, and catne away from thereabout a year ago, since which time he has been at Providence, R. L, and Augusta. The cause for his arrest is not known. 1 3TDuring the last month thirty American sea-going vessels were lost. Of these 0 were steamers, 2 ships, 10 barques, 1 a brig, and '*2 '* schooners. Nine were captured and burned, one captured, fate unknown, one sunk after oollision, two were foundered, one burned, and j*' one is missing, supposed lost.

True, Esq., of Augusta, Helios of the Press—are about preparing a history of Maine’s participancy in the great struggle of the l'Jth century. Mr. True’s busi ness has been for sometime past among the “fig ures” in the capitol, and he is abundantly able to give the element of accuracy to such a work, while his co-laborer is richly endowed with the powet to furnish whatever of the fanciful and romantic it is desirable to throw around the dry details of such a subject. A recent Paris Charivari has the “un kindest cut that England has ever received from its hands. It is entitled England’s Crockett. The English lion, with ths royal crown upon his head, with the tamest and most subdued expression, is marching into its Jen, reduced to a mere dog kennel, while a military figure, representing the Holy Alliance of Rus sia, Austria, and Prussia, whip in hand, stands over him. This print is a most capital picture of the public opinion of France just now with regard to England on the Danish question. A Pew Words to Business Men. STEADY IS THE BANKS. The following, cut from the Boston Daily Advertiser of about a month ago, is as worthy of consideration in this latitude as in that city: Every patriotic business man has now a chance to show his coolness, sagacity and pluck, The copperheads in Wall and State streets are pressing you hard; they have pour ed in volley alter volley, and are now making a charge. S!t win in the rank*' ami all and will be well. Il you haye goods iu the Custom House, mid think it will pay to take them out, do so, and remit for them the instant you make a a sale; if you don’t think they wiU pay, ship them back to Europe and the advance there iu merchandize will very uearly, if not quite, pay costs and charges, and it will keep just 80 much gold in the country. Huy aud sell lor cash. If you have govern ment securities, stand by the flag and hold on to them. They are better than the gold held by gamblers, for they representyour principle . Don’t sell a dollar, hut if you want money, raise it on them. Don't fret because you did not buy gold sixty days since to cover your fail importa tions. Il you hail doue so, you would have done wrong; you would merely have made a few dirty dollars by betting that gold would go higher. Don't liet at all, but il you do bet don’t bet on the side of Ihe Devil, lor if you win he wiil cheat you out of your self res pect, and thus you will be the loser; but don't bet at all. liuy just as tittle gold as yon can get along with, not a moment before you want it and not a moment alter. 8iand stiff on your pins and if any man iu your presence hints at the possibility of the government repudiating its obligations, tell him be is a coward, a lool and a liar. li your “soul is disquieted within you,” aud you aie troubled because you don’t know whether you are worth double or half what you thought yourself on the tlrst of Jauuirv, make a liberal donation to the Sani tary Commission or to the suffering soldi rs ol the 54th aud 55th regiments, and you wiil feel better; and repeat the dose as often as you feel a returu of the blues. If you want a complete cure, pay for aud send a substi tute, if you cannot go yourself. “All's well, or will be, that ends well,” and the right will certainly triumph, and the country be restored. Steady in the ranks ! Franklin Street. Representative Recruits.—The Hon. Edward Everett, in a letter to Gov. Andrew, says: I entertain a very favorable opinion of tho plan of representative substitutes, for those not liable to personal service. I pro cured one for myself nearly two years ago, and as soon as the present plan was announc ed I determined to avail myself of it to pro cure another. I now enclose my cheek for the requ site sum. It appears to mu an ar rangement exceedingly well calculated to eu ibie persons not subject to draft to share, to )ome exteut, the burden with those who are, ind I have no doubt that all, who have the means, will gladly resort to this method of fastening the recruitment of the army of the United States, aud thus bringing the war to a ipeedy cl< se.
