SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 2, 1S02
Down Willi the toot!
Months and months ngo lifts il liem
a twelve monlhV the Fresiilcnt told liis
country men that lip intrtirlrd as the l!x-
eeutive of tlio RcpuMic "to yut his foot
rfmni firmly." It was not to be the deli
rate pat of the dancer's foot as lie glides
along with cthcrial and noiseless motion
bat rather the solid and pondrous stroke
of the elephant's foot, which, would
make the very ground tremble under its
weight. Months have glided by the rr
bellion still rages the deadly smell o
battle is in the air, and blood and gun
powder taint every breeze and thous
ands of true hearts have become Htrango
ly still and cold on the field of earmige
Never, oh tievrr more shall wo look upon
-ilic far.es of Baker and Lyon and Win
throp, whose eyes darkened with the (ilm
of death while they fought for the glori
oiih old flap:. They offered up their lives
to save the lives and li. erties of others
many of whom, we fear, nro uot worth the
precious sacrifice. And treason raes
nnd traitors are insolent, and loyal men
are insulted, plundered and exiled, one
tho land groans in auguixh. It is the
darkest niirht of time. Never was such
a nation racked with such agony. Mr
President, do you utill hesitato to strike
our enemius? Do you blill dream of the
possibility of conciliating men who tell
you with sneers and furious imprecations
that they will not be conciliated ? Han
ish tho idle dream, and gird your loins
for action. The rebels are making vigor
ous, determined, earnest war, and we are
hesitating and undecided. If we trille
thus much longer the nation is lost be
yond redemption, the stars and liars will
lloat indeed " from the dome of the l'ede
ral Capital," as Secretary Walker boasted
and Toouihs will call the roll of his slaves
in tho shadow of Hunker Hill Monumeut.
If wo fuller now, at what point of degra
dation and dishonor may wo hopo
stop? Why may not tho Nort west, the
great Middles States and New England
bow to tho unresisted guerrilla of Jell'
Davis, who will ride over the whole conn
try as triumphantly as tho army of Ma
hornet? Tho Eastern papers aiu.uuiiee
that (hero will be no complaint hence
forward of a lack of vigor in proBecnling
the war; the President has so, declared.
We hope tho declaration may be verified
I.et the "President put his foot down
firmly." It is ungraceful as well
as fatiguing to stand for montliB at a
time, with one leg poised in mid air, like
a shivering .rooster on a cold day. It
would be a bad attitude for a historical
portrait, for the President to be sketched
with his legs forming a figure four, or
the outl'iiu'iif a little A, with tho fore
leg truncated. It would bo a bad atti
tude, wo say, and we hope the President
won't adopt il himself, nor allow any of
his subordinate s to do so. We would
rather see tho Cabinet, and all tho Ma
jor and P.rigadit r Cicncrals, and soldiers
in the army, represented as moveable
staluaiywtukii.g their i'eet up anddoHu
vigorously to tho music of tho Union.
St. Vitus dance, would bo preferable to
tho stand still policy. Timid men who
at tho beginning of the rebellion, said
that it would never do to coerce, and that
wo must expostulalo with the traitors
who were seeking to slay us, are now
remonstrating against the adoption of a
more vigorous policy. They insist that
things are going on exactly right, that
this is a constitutional war and that the
President must still continue to balance
himself on one leg ; then if all this fail,
that wc must acknowledge the Southern
Confederacy. Disregard all such coun
sellors Mr.' President' Never in the his
tory of any great revolution did jou
read of the success of a VasciUating, ci.iiit
promising policy. Compromises and
Revolutions are incompatible; they will
uot mix ; j uii can no more combine tin in
than you can combine oil and water.
Down with your foot Mr. Lincoln! We
wait anxiously to see it descend like a
gigantic trip-hammer upon the head of
that treason which is robbing us of peace

yield if 5,000 ; ono hundred of tho next

might be raised for tho preservation of

families of our gallant soldiers. We
must wako up or our sister chics will

Fiticst' Mi:iici:i;: Your editorial inthis
morning's issue, in relation to ihc neces
sity of raising a fund for the hcncfit of
the Tennessee volunteers, is a very good
thing, and I hope your suggest inns in re
lation to it will be carried out, and hope
that you will keep il before the people;
for it fs a notorious fact that rebel wives
and families, whose .husbands are. in the
rebel service endeavoring to destroy the
Government and ruin tho Slate, aredi aw
ing their weekly stipend Vi lieu the loyal
citizen and soldier who is ready and
lighting for the maintenance of the Union
and his Slate, is left to want. You have'
no idea of Ihc sullcring the men of this
regiment have undergone ; tho formation
of it has been a hard one. Many of our
men were laborers in the city, renting
their homes of secessionists, aud no tocn
cr would the man whosi loyal and patri
otic feelings would induce him to enlist,
Item his family and c hatties were turned
out of doors ami all help cut ell'; but liy
heavy exertions and his Excellency, the
(iyveinor, mailers were made to turn
more favorable to us. The regiment has
linn a long while in the service, and
amidst the privations the men hae done
their duty faithfully. When Maj. The
ncck and myself were authorized to raise
the regiment, wo were (lallcrud by a com
mittee of citizens that a snug little sum
of money would be raised for the benefit
of tho families of the 1st Tennessee, and
under these inducements ve encour igcd
men to enlist. J'tit I am sorry losay that
seventy-fivo dollars. is all the aid this
regiment has received from such sources,
which will I hope have A tendency to

hair, cut it ofT. Don't make him blind
with rage, and let his bids grow, so lhat

whenever the whim may posses him.
Why allow your fl. adly foe to use nn
"lenient of immense strength" wl.i;u il
is the easiest, thing in the world to rob
him. of that strength? Will any one
maintain the absurdity that it Is rigid to
.' your enemy, but tfn,t,j to atiz. his
treapma? Yet this is virtually Ihc po
sition of the Timet. The 7Vadds:
We have no! heard of any reat exodus
of slaves, except of such of (h, ui as the
rebels did not want. Some halt and blind
and aged negroes have c inu into our
lines, and are suppni ted at tho public, ex
pense, but not many otheis.
Our contemporary certainly docs not
read the newspapers, or he would know
that great numbers of stout, healthy
slaves have run off tiom rebel master in
Missouri and in Virginia. In many1
counties of the latter Slate the crops are
perishing in consequence of the stampede
of (he slaves, and in other counties
planters aro compelled to pay high wages
to their negroes to ketj) them from leav
ing. Every rebel paper that wo get from
the South reveals the fact that they are
in dread of the general exodus of their
slaves. Here in Middle Tennessee thou
sandwof able-bodied negroes belonging
to rebel masters could be got without the
least dilliculty by the Federal authorities
if they wanted them. Of course loyal
masters would not bu interfered with, for
We strike al the resources of the rebels.
AS to thu "halt, blind and aged negroes"
that the Hmet speaks of, the editor has
been hoaxed, as that class of negroes
don't run away. The fugitives we have
seen aro hale, lusty fcllowv, who are
anxious" to get employment on fortifica
tions for (he Federal aimy, and wo hope
ourollicers will find employment for them.
It is asking too much of human credulity
to believe that hundreds of thousands of
slaves would not gladly leave their rebel
masters if they could find udmitlauce
within our lines. The rebels all know
this and look forward with apprehension
aud tenor to the day when the new
policy shall be inaugurated. Talk to a
robe! five minutes about the war and he
will betray his fears on this point.
Common sense as well as pal riot ism would
dictate lo us thcmploymciit of that cle
ment of strength which is so important
to the rebels, and which, if wcdoimt
use, I he rebels will soon employ with far
more startling effect than they yet have
done. Whal if the Co'ifederatu Gov
ernment should olfcr every slave his free
dom w ho should shoot a Federal ollii er
eir bring in a Federal sca'p ?
It is a singular fact, buf one worthy

Mi:. I'm :ot;: About two weeks api ihc
people here we're thrown inlo consiil' r
ablo i xi ill liienl from tho seizure of two
pins a Tennessee ridge. They wre fe il
eral aims and were taken by a party o?
young men (rebels) in broad dav time.
Older heads, I I hink, counselled nnd ad
vised the movement.
The taking of (he guns, in connection
with the universal belief aiming loya'
fnen, th(t tciTcl . met tings were liting
brld by the ribils in different parts of
the country, formed the impression that
a guerrilla party, or parlies, was, or were,
be ing formed in our midst. A meeting'
was e slh d of all peace-loving citizens, ef
all opposed to guerrilla warfare, to meet
near the Tennessee rielge, on the 23d, that
the moral sentitnrnt of the country might
be expresse d in condctnnajion of the hell
ish warfare a warfare practiced only by
savage and semi-civilized nations. A day'
or two before Ihr meeting, the secestieui
ists slarted thu report that fifly armed
gucnillas were in the edge of Humphreys
and had dispersed iif sepiaels, and were
doubtless in the neighborhood. The im
pression bei amc general that an ambus
cade would be laid feir tho Union men.
I did not believe ono word of the report,
but I found alni isl every man al the meet
ing armed. The re w ere about one hundred
and seve'iily-five Union citizens present.
Many more would have been present, had
ilot the story obtained credence. Very
few sece'scioni'st attended. To sco a
public meeting of Union men in old Stew
art was a painful spectacle to them. They
regarded it as tho hand-writing on tho
wall, prophetic of theirpolitic.il damna
tion forever. They had assurance that
not one of them would be molested' it
they attended, and yet not more than
seven or eight attended. ' I have no doubt
but a majority of them would like to see
the Union men shot or driven out of the
country. Woe bo unto them, if they com
mence 1 he work in old Stew art. I have
regareleel this rebellion, from the first, as
the most causeless and infamous in the
annals of tho world, gotten up to gratify
(he hellish ambition of a selfish, heartless
aristocracy, who, seeing they could no
longer occupy tho high place's in, and
control, the Federal Government, were
determined to have a government of their
own. , . ..
For sonio years 1 have been of the opin
ion that the leading men of the South, of
the Calhoun school, designed overturning
p 'polar represe ntative Government.
Since the rebellion commenced, I see in
dications of sue'h a design all over the
South. "A Stato has a right to secede
with or without cause, and establish a
Monarchy, if she chooses," says Senator
Wigfall, of Texas. A writer in De
How's Review says "the truo ex
pression of .Southern Civilizaliou ia an
hereditary executive, and Senate for life.''
Several Georgia and Alabama paper
have expressed themselves in favor of
monarehy. Mr. Ilcssuii writing from
Charleston to tho Loudon Timet, says
the leading men of South Carolina re
gareleel self-government a failure, and
were willing io come under her Hrifanic
Majesty's government. I think it is
likely that sumo of Ihem may re ach her
governi ie t, but 1 am wry certain that
they w ill all ultimately live under her
.Sr.'iiiijV Majesty's government. I am a
Southern man a pro-slavery mau--born,
and have liveel a half century uneler her
sunny skies. I conscientiously bidievc
that tho establishment of the Southern
Confederacy woulel ho tho greatest ca
lamity that could befall the South. I
love the South, her people, her institu
tions, my sympathies aro all with them,
but I have none nore w hatever for the
infamous bogus, "free love government."
Based as it is upem a principle of anarchy,
it is a Pandora's box of evil, an illiad of
woes lo mankind. The establishment of
the Confederacy Woulel be the beginning
of the night of civilization, with no hope
ed returning day. I pray God it may
never taku place. Dulicnv iu his Review
spy.s, Mh.xon made hi "Evk a ne'gro
wem h." The gn at barel delini'atcs hiT,
as the scriptures do, a lielptne te to her
husband. And for so drawing hcri liar
acte r, the' infamous rebel regards her
'lily as a negro wem h. Dr. CAitrwiilOHT
of New O.'lcan says, "the women of the
West, w ho have not negroes U elo (heir
hoiiscwoik are only lit to breed fanatics."
Fri'.-mci.ii of Virginia says, "the man
who holds the plough handle is entitled
to no more eonsiiieialiou than the horse,
or as thai draw it." A contributor to
the Review from Louisiana, says, in an
article lauding Aristocracy, claiming for
it all virluc, intelligence anil decency,
"that the mechanics and labelling men of
111,) country, light thu baltht of the
country, and do the labor of the coun
try, and for this we, the aristocracy, give
tin m liberty." Tbi i perhaps, Mr. Ed-1

the virtue and intelligence of the masse s.
The man who will talk about Slate
right hereafter, when the Government
mean a blessing to tho Stale, should be
regarded as a fit subject feir a lunatic
asylum, or the penitentiary. . '
The whole preipcrty of tho country
hould be tid to educate the children
of the country. No one can niaku me
believe that if the laboring men of this
Stale had Lceu educaled they would
have gone for Secession. The ignorance
of the masses in this Slate surpasses
anything I dreamed of; whole families
la my county cau neither read nor wiite.
..Enclosed I pend yon an article from
the St. Louis ErjmhKaui. , The writer ex
presses my view s fully on the great ques
tion that now shakes the continent and
agitale tho world. Old Stewart county
will be all right ere long.
Col. Andrew, commanding at Fort
Ponelson, and hi olficcrs, have maele
most favorabjo impressions upem the- cit
izens, anil we have no doubt but that
thry will be able to preserve tho pence
of the county until (he re-organization
of the Slate government, when the eivil
jovver will be able to do it.
Gov. Johnson's course merits the ap
probation of all loyal men. His unfal
tering devotion to the Union, and to tho
true principles of government, are known
of all men. "Faithful amongst the faith
less; unse duced, uuterrified, ho ha kept
hi zeal and loyalty pure." May the
people reward him with the highest olliee
