THURSDAY MORNING. MARCH 28. 1863
The Louisville Journal, of Tosds.T(
contains an editoral commencing " We
(ths lector editor of th Journal) baviryj
Jut returned," Ac. Theeditoriat occupirs
something orcr the third of a column in
tbe Journal, and ii probablj (he longr-st
article the senior editor Lea contributed
ta that piper for a twclro month; at
least we hope ao, for hie own credit. Mr.
I'axHTiCB ia surprised that we re-pnbllth
ed a dispatch lent from Cincinnati totli
J Chlcajo Timet elating that 'the rebels
., were about to inrado Kentucky ia bra
.1 force, that they would hatd possession 4
thai State within a' month, and that ho
! ' (Mr.' raeNTicE) ' was goiDg to Europe
. , followed b a comment of onrs, that if
. each were the fact he had no doubt cb
- iatned bis information from Lis Ron, win
',' is a Major in tbe Confederate army. We
t aaw the fame dispatch in substance, in
Several other papers, beside the Chicago
;: ' Titnei. 'Within an hour after, the
' publication of the Union containing
7,',tha dispatch, we. saw a gentleman
i from Louisville, who assured us the
' aiory Was untrue, and we immediately
wrote a correction, 'which we published
the next morning, before denial bad
appeared in any ol her paper. The senior
editor says he is at a loss to imagine how
any one could fancy t" an bumble Major
in the Confederate army ". could coiimia
tilcate such information. , The history of
( all wars furnishes repeated instances of
. i information of tbe most'impnrtaut nature
having brea Communicated by persons in
'positions' far more obscuro than that
,'t of,, an humble Major.", Tbe conspiracy
,of .CaTaLIVB against Romo was com
!' manlcate'd to Cicttno by ' Tcbia, a
common prostitute. Our supposition
wia . oil which every sensible per
Son would naturally make. It is surely
- no imputation on a man's loyalty to sup
pose tbst he had received such a warn
ing from ' ! soo, who, although be had
.. reoouoced hi loyalty, still retained the
virtue of filial aflVotlon; and we cannot
co'netire way a foyal man should take
exceptions to such a natural supposition.
,'f senior . editor"., nest denlss our
V statement, that ho does not control the
vfcoore of the Jew ml, and asserts that
It baa never bva Impelled iuto any pol
h ioy , of publio moment without da
I riving from as (himself ) a portion of its
impulse." ' Very well ; this sweeping en
dorsement and impima,iurt which he has
thus slSxed to the tortuous, inconsistent
1 loyal and - disloyal, emancipation and
-ill fa pro-slavery editorials of the Journal
'Is all the worse for himself. If liu esq
- endure his own endorsement, we shall
certainly not tronble ourselves about ids
, ootrdiotion. Tbe conversation' which"
we had with him was pot " at his home,"
as he would seem to believe, but in tbe
, Journal office, and we never repeated any
'portion of it for any ."unkind purpose.'.
, What we said we said for his own good.
Yit- personal Considerations we regret
that he socordiallj endorses the swagger
ing insolence, and shallow niperliiicnce
willed the iotrna. has so repeatedly mau
i Tested to its controversies with various,
loyal newspapei-s of late, and especially
with the Nashville Usiojf. . We would
notice more fully its disposition for ill
mannered dictation, bad not the late
Union Convention -of Kentucky given
evidence that tbe spell of tbe dictator is
Woken! " We personally know that, hun
dreds of the most devoted and enlight
ened patriots of Kentucky believe that
-tha Journal for months past has been a
cur to the Union cause ia that Stale,
and wa know too that nearly every loyal
Teonessean whom we have met in Nash
ville entertains the same opinion. '-'" ','
1 When a newspaperprofessing fidelity
to the Government, ia time of, a perilous
and tremendous struggle for national
existence, assails all the war measures of
those who admlnlstor it, with laborious
vehemence and acrimony, and an earnest
ness which betrays a love for the un
gracious occupation ; when it allies itself
wi'h a partisan opposition, whose leaders
in Btate Legislatures propose armistices
and peace conventions, and whose mem
Ws exalt scoundrele who hsve been
Jastly arrested for treason, to the rank
of heroes ; wben its columns furnish au
thority for every malcontent who wishes
i justify himself in rebelling against a

the Journal, disregards "all the laws of

graced not only tbe clerksliijt'Vnt tbe

that in bis devotion to principle, he Lever

In (his Stste he ptssrard the confldince

conservative, ssgacions and far-sighted,
he is of necessity progressive in bis

to be regretted..

adds ' that tho Confederates must

The party and the citizens who ad
here to tbe principles Upon which our
government was founded, . and under
which it has prospered, according to
Johnson and company, are sympathisers
with Southern Unbelt), and the men who
are opposed to "the Uuion as it was and
the Constitution as it is," and .who for
years have declared that hot hare a league
with death and a covenant, with bell,
have suddenly become., patriots and
statesmen. Front such assumed De
mocracy and patriotism every true clti
sen should pray' for deliverance, i We
allude to the arguments and expressions
of Oovernor Johnson to illiitrafo the
weakness, Inconsistency and prejudices
of thn opponents of the Democratic p.r

country. Iihlianapo'ii (Iml.) Ssntin'tL '
The IudinstK)iis Sentir.rf which speaks
of the "atsumed Democracy and patriot
ism" of Governor Jotiynoy, is one of the
most venomnm Coppethead organs in
Indiana. Oovernor Johnson has re
mained a patriot in adversity, and the
Sentinel has turned a traitor in propp ri
ty, The Democracy of the Sentinel
tu an devotion to the fortunes of Jivr.
Davis and the cotton oligarchy.' Gov.
Joiinson very correctly described 'such
Democrats in the extract from one of bis
recent speeches; , . . , , . .
I am a Democrat, not one of your new
fangled Democrats, however, who being
opposed to some of the aote of the Ad
ministration, have turned IruUors io tbe

Government in great peril.
Your inodera Democracy are ever
ready to cry out that we of the North
are violating the Constitution and sub
verting the laws ; but you never hear
tliera charge J til". Davis or bis associates
with violating the Constitution. 0!i, no!
They have no tbtrgs to make against
them; but everything Mr. Lincoln does
is found fault wiib, because Mr. Lincoln
makes an effort to defend and preserve
The reason why the Scnlinel bates
Wright, DicsissuS.BiADr and Jonssujr,
is that they have prefi rred rushiojj to the
defence of their country ia timo of
danger to adhering to a polilicnl faction
in the North, which, having cherished
fellowship io former years with Davis,

-The National Almanac and Rrcord,
tbe only authority we havt at band, and
or e highly tt nimcbdcd, states that at
the captute of Fort Duuelaon, Feb. It),
1302, the Union fore s took 1:1,300 pris
oners, 8,000 horses, 18 field pieces,' 17
heavy guns, 20,000 stand of arms, and a
laigi quantity of cemmissary stores.
Tho total Confederate loss in killed,
wounded and prisoners wss 13,007. The
total Union loss in killed and wounded
was 2,331. . '
If tbe Nashville Uxion were to pub
lish either a communication or an edito
rial, giving the number aud calibre of the
guns ou our fortifications, we would cer
tainly be arrested, and onr paper proba
bly suppressed.' And yet au Ohio Dem
ocratic paper publishes a letter "from
an artillery soldier" in this place, making
those very statements. It is strange that
any loyal newspaper should be so indis
creet. The rebel newspapers never com
mit such errors.

mented in the bonda of (reason to destroy
this Government, tha ofUcers and men of
this meeting surrounded on every baud
by all the powers of rebellion' against
them, have maintained their allegiance
to the Government of their fathers ; they
have bid adieu for a time to their wives
and children, fathers, mothers, relations
and all near and dar to them. In a pe
cuniary point of view, and in social and
domestic relations, they have buckled
on the armor of war and now number
fif'ten thousand strong; and
Whereas, They s'rngnlcd long, and
zealously to avert the war that now pro-'

the doctrine of secession would result in
the inevitable result of tho abolition' of
Slavery; and " . . . ; 1 : . .it

journals in the rebel Government, pub
lished at Richmond and elsewhere, and
their doctrines indorsed and promulgated
by the pretended proclamation of tbe
usurper, Jell'eison Davis of Mississippi,
that no regard in the future should ho
paid to tho Constitution f the so-called
Confederate Constitution, that all power
should bo vested in Jetft rson Davis as
Piesideut of the so-called Confederacy ;

Whereas, Alt men within the limits of
the territory over which the rebels claim

belonging to those in armed rebellion,

that (he Government now has the power,
and is possessed of the facilitiea to march
a sufficient force into East Tennessee to
seise and hold that country, and redeem
from rebel dominion over one hundred
thousand souls, male and female, and
which, when done, cuts the eirinal mar-
row of the Southern Confederacy. Such
act will destroy the great thoroohfare
between tho- Southeast and Northwest,
and will effectually divide, irretrievably,
the two armies ot the rebels r and
Whkbkas, We are yet satisfled that
our love and adherence to the'' Federal
Government as declared and announced in

in 1801, were correct, and based tipon thn
best interests of liberty, freedom an 1
duty of all true friends of Rood Govern
ment and liberty ; and that onr ttue In

and maintain to the letter the principles
by us then enunciated 3 and ' .

trio's lovers of their country, and Wedded
to East Tennessee, the land of our homes,
where linger, oppressed, onr dear wives,

real benefit than a regiment of men in

In East Ttnneaseo may rest with perfect
aasursnco that Ibis aruiy is now a unit
in acntiment as to iiio modo of prosecu
tion of the 'War;' that in Vfficioiicy and
conquering powers it ia unsurpassed by
any army iu the world. The ofllcers
and men are proud of their position as
oncers and soldiers, and that this army
will uiovo ou at the right time and in the
right manner, and be led by the conquer
ing Maj. -General W. S. Kosecrana to East
Tennessee for ,the final redemption: of
If that oppressed etruntry and people.
Resvlvod, lLiThat we spuru..all propo
sition lor any armstice or oessatioa of
hostilities until the rebels throw down
their arms. We opposo ,'ait conventions
under the napie of peace cooveolioas;
tbe authoraof all such we view with dis
trust, and can Fee; no Ctrtaju result
therefrom but treason to (ha Government
aust a tenileney tit its -disruption,. add
tliat we ask . aiul prosit a vigorous and
united prosecution of the war, and the
execution, as we advance, of .necessary
means, military and civil, to restore the

righteous cause, his usual energy aud
ability, which we have a hope and con
fiding trust he will do.
Resolved, 13. .That, inasmuch as the
rebels in East Tennessee are - arresting
and confining ia prisons .Union men ot
East Tennessee, fur no offence except that
they hold Union sentiments, .we respect
fully urge upon Andrew Johnson, as Mil
itary Governor of Tennessee, to at once
cause to bo arrested so many of the re
bels of Tooncs-sce, en aud about Nashville,
ss bo may deem necessary not less than
two rebels for every one Uuion man of
note and standing and hold them in
prision until the Uuion men all under
arrest shall be restored to hlx rty.
