Etheridge has addressed a letter to th
Memphis Avalanche, declining to ac
cent the position of candidate for Presi
dential Elector on the Liberal ticket, for
which he was nominated last Mav. He,
however, supports Greeley as the true
representative of the prevalent ideas and
needs of the times, and not to restore
any party to power. He advises the
true friends of Greeley to make no olc
jection to the personnel of the electoral
ticket, wnen he atlils, tne reluctance
with which many of his followers in
Tennessee have agreed to obey the or
ders issued from Baltimore, and we
should there panlon tne harmless arro-
6 nee which they display inward
r. Greeley's early and steadfast
friends. Let us charitably believe these
tilings are not designed to injure bis
prospects abroad. He does not believe
they can do so to an extent sufficient to
defeat his election. Mr. Greeley has
too much reputation to fall an easy
prey to unjust suspicions, too muchjMip
ularity to be crushed by the silly garrul
ity of uninvited guests, who declaim at
( 'happaua, and too much good sense
to le grateful to gushing orators, who
ratify his nomination by eulogies iihhi

cause. , it i in n '

Nashviixe, August 13. Last night
while on a visit to J P. White, of
Edgefield, Andrew Johnson was seren
aded by a large number of citizens, and
in response to repeated calls, made a
speech of some length, repeating briefly
the points of his Knoxville speech, ex
pressing his love of Democracy. He said
he bad pardoned and amnestied many
men, but was now himself ouc of the
proscribed, and hoped that amnesty
would not be denied him longer. The
speech was well received.

that King Amadeus has not, as report

letter says that the American claims for
damages by the privateer Alabama is
for the sum of about seven million dol

however, fix the damages at three mill

that should be paid, if, indeed, any
guilt is to lie laid to England at all.
Geneva, August 13. The Board of
Arbitration have not as yet settled
upon the main question as to wheth
er lite British government used
due diligence to prevent the escape of
rebel cruisers. The court is engaged in
examining successively cases of these
vessels to ascertain haw far the general
charge of negligence on the part of
Great Britain may hold gtaxl with re

the circumstances of each case is sup
posed to invest him with the authority
of an expert.
