Glre ns a Separate State.
If ever the real people of East Tennessee were
united on any one proiect, it is that of forming and
erecting a separate State out of the thirty-one coun
ties of East Tennessee. The people with one voice,
cry out give us a new and separate Stale. It is not
necessary here to set forth the geographical, politi
cal, Eocial, economical and industrial reasons which
urge this separation they strike the minds of all
men at nnre and with force. We should set out, if
organised, with population of 300,000 souls, and in
ten years it would be doubled. Our new State from
the lower end of Marion county, to the upper end
of Johnson, vrnuld afford us a territory 300 miles
long, Knoxville being within ten miles of the cen
tre. Oar fine lands would at once be taken up and
put in cultivatJon. Our vast mineral resources
"would be at once developed, and everyj county made
"boast of its. manufacturing establishments. Erect
East Tennessee into a new and separate State, and
. it will be the proudest day she has seen since the
year 1796. when Tennessee was admitted into the
This idea of a separate political existence is not a
recent one, but has been entertained for a quarter of
a century, by many of our best men. The hopeless
and irreconcilable differences of opinions and pur
poses, as between our poeple and those west of the
mountains, leave no alternative but a separation.
Let it be done honorably, amicably and constitution
ally ; and let the division of territory be followpd by
a division of the public property, upon fair, just
and equitable principles. Let th9 State proper turn
over to us her interest in our line of railroads, and
r-uch public buildings as havo been erected by
ine btate ana tney are lew in number wtiue we
would surrender our interests in all west of the
Mountains, including the State Capitol.
Let our people by memorials to the present Leg
islature, or by the action of an EastTcnnrsee Con
vention, call on that body for its formal assent to
the proposed separation, pursuant to the provisions
of Section 3d, Article 4th, of the Constitution of
the United States. Or let a Convention of the peo
ple of the three Grand Divisions of the State be
called, with authority to so amend the Constitution
t the State, as to carry into effect the proposed
change. Let us hare action, and have it note, and
lot every county and every man speak out. As
soon p.s we are amicably separated, Congress will
admit us, and in doing so, will admit a new State,
greatly superior to West Virginia !
Rebel Feeling toward the President.
In a speech at Nashvillo recently, Judge M. M.
Frien, Union candidate for the Legislature, exposed
the duplicity of those note loudest in praise of Mr.
Johnson, but who until recently, were most emphat
ic in denouncing him. Judge B. said, "They re
minded hi in of an old man in the mountain dis
tricts a great thief whom he prosecuted for steal
ing meal in White county and hogs in Overton.
It was a long while before the old fellow could get
Toady for trial, under either indictment. At last
when hie case was called at one of the county-seats he
was found ready, and, as an artful dodge, had
got religion. There was a great crowd around the
court house, and the prosecutor, Jeff.Eldridge, stood
among them. The old thief, as he passed through
the throng to the court house, shook, hands
with all.he met, and professed lovo for everybody.
Recognizing the prosecutor, he lcoked at him as he
Dassed. and exclaimed, " Yes, and I love that G d
d d Jeff. Eldridgc, too." The Judge concluded by j elected Governor by more than 5,000 majority over
saying thatTennesseeans who are now so freely de-
Bankrupts Seeking Kctorlctj.
w. R. Faiteraon, late Cashier of the National
Bank of this place, laid recently to E. T. Carson, a
citizen of Cincinnati, that he " had left Xncxrille
because a Northern man could not live in the South."
This we learn from the most reliable source. It will
be news to the people of Knoxville and East Ten
nessee, and is a reflection upon our people wholly
false and discreditable.. Such a statement might be
made justly in regard to the rebel Cotton States, but
it is not true of East Tennessee. The utterance oi
such a slander upon the people of East Tennessee
compels us to give the reasons why he left inox
ille. By the President and Directors he was re
quired to resign his position as Cashier of the Na
tional Bank, because his management of the Bank
was not acceptable. He discounted paper for the
benefit of a mercantile house in vhkh ht had an in
terest, after a style which did not suit the purpose of
the Board of Directors. To favor him as much as
possible, and save his feelings, he was allowed to re
sign. He ought, therefore, to assign no such reason
for lea vine Knoxville. Up to the hour of his de
parture from this place, he was ardent in supporof
the so-called policy of the President, and unsparing
in denunciation of radicals.
This was his course in Knoxville. Because we
said through this paper that in the sections of the
South where the majority of the people had rebelled
there was a feeling of hostility toward Northern
men, Mr. Patterson was of that class who denounced
us as "a libeller of the integrity and loyalty of the
South." Now he goes further, and puts East Ten
nessee in the same boat with South Carolina. .
Old Thad Stevens ought to have Patterson sum
moned as a witness before the Reconstruction Com
mitteo. We have heard of no testimony that East
Tennesseee is so disloyal that a Northern man can't
live here, until W. B. Patterson gave it
The truth is, Patterson 44 played out" here more
effectually than any man we ever knew in the place.
He is of that class of Northern men who care noth
ing for any platform of principles, and in politics
take the course which thty think will pay best. In
Maine or Massachusetts they are bitter in denuncia
tion of rebels. In a few days in Knoxville, to curry
favor with a pinch-back, broken down slave aristoc
racy, they denounce the majority in Congress as
traitors, and all who defend them.
Finally, it is this lying, worthless class of North
ern men who create all the prejudice which exists
against Northern men in this section. They are the
worst representatives of the meanest class of men at
the North. For their bread and meat they change
their principles, and creep after the disloyal, who
use them for their dirty work.
A large majority of the Northern men who have
settled in East Tennessee, are ef an entirely differ
ent class, and are as good citizens and honorable men
as Tennessee or any other State can boast.
Great Union Victories.
" Freedem's battle once began,
Bequeated from bleeding sire to tea,
' Though baffled oft
Is ever won."
Since our last paper was published, events have
transpired which will cause the hearts ef loyal East
Tennessecans to leap with pride and exultation.
There has been a series of victories over treason and
copperheadism, which are scarcely less important in
their results than the triumphs over armed rebels on
the battle-fields of the late war. Everywhere
Radical Unionism has triumphed, and Con
servatism AND Cof FERBXASISM HAB BEEN
ROUTED. 44 HORSE, FOOT AND DRAGOONS."
But a little while ago so-called Conservatives
wore rejoicing and confident as were Sennacherib
and his hosts ; but now it may be said of them as it
was of the Assyrians :
" Like the leaves of the forest when Summer is green,
That host with their banners at sunset were seen ;
Like the leaves of the forest when Autumn hath blown,
That host on the morrow lay withered and strown.
And there lay the rider distorted an d pale,
Wiih the dew on Ms brow and the rust on his mail,
And the tents were all silent, the banners alone,
The lances unlifted, the trumpets anblown."
First, treason has been routed in Tennessee.
Though a majority of the traitors who broke up the
Tennessee Legislature have been re-elected by dis
loyal constituencies, enough Union men have been
successful to give us a quorum and the law 44to limit
the elective franchise."
After the twenty-one rebels left their seats, refus

law, there were only Two votes wanted to make a

Tbc Election in Carter County.
Carter Countt, March 31, 1866.
Ma. Johjt B. Browslow Dear Sir .- The elec
tion is over in this county for Representative, and
Capt "Williams is elected over CapL Taylor by a
majority of seventeen votes. Taylor was gaining
votes rapidly every day, and if the election had been
off a few days longer, he would have been elected
by a good majority. This is the opinion of most of
the men that I have heard express themselves.
Taylor, I have no doubt, would have been elected
anyhow, but for a report put in circulation just be
fore the election that he had withdrawn from the
race, but it was Tipton instead of Taylor. I under
stand that several Taylor men were kept away from
the election on account of this report. You may
be surprised at the vote that Taylor got in Williams'
own district, but it was the boys that served under
Taylor, and who knew Taylor to be a soldier and a
gentleman, and would not vote against him. Lastly,
and one grand reason of Taylor's defeat, was because
the people, or a good many of them, were misled,
and made to bolieve that the Franchise Bill would
disfranchise all the loyal men who had been forced
U aid the rebellion in any way whatever, and en
franchise the negro soldier, and this was the ground
that Williams occupied, and from which he brought
his battery to bear, well knowing if he could only
get the people to believe it. that he was sure of a
victory. Although Taylor did not enter the can
vass for some time after it opened, he made telling
speeches in favor of the bill. All honor to Captain
Taylor for his able defense of the bill. He fought
manfully and bravely for several years as a private
and officer to put rebels down, and he is one of the
last men who will do anything to bring them into
power and place again.
The following is the vote :

but when it does get through, there are many who
regard it as quite a treat, and if postal facilities
were fully re-established in this section, you would
have many subscribers in Western Carolina, es
pecially if Greenbacks were more plenty; but dur
ing the rebellion, the big rebels said the Lincoln
money should'nt come into their confederacy, and
if they could catch a fellow trading on it, they would
snatch him up ; but all the time were picking it up
themselves. Some would raid over to Tennessee,
and if they could catch a Union man or soldier,
were made if he had'nt Greenbacks, so that some of
them, when the war ended, had more than anybody.
I have said when mail facilities are restored, you
will have subscribers from Western Carolina, for
j there is a strong Union element here many as
pure as can be found in the United States, who
sympathized with, pray for, and worked for the
Government and its friend?, not ouly at the risk of
ease and safety, but their living, friends and life it
self. I believe the truth of a remark made by a
Federal officer in Cincinnati. W heu talking to
some of his Union friends he Eaid : 11 When I cot
out of prison, I came through Western Carolina and
East Tennessee, and if you want to know what
true Unionism is,go there. Why, even the women
and children would give escaped prisoners and
Union men the last bite of bread, and pilot them
through the mountains day and night." They did,
and do look on the Union with a sort of religious
reverence, notwithstanding I believe some fifteen
years, ago Clingman, a late Confederate General re
joiced that the time had come when the people had
ceased to look on the Union with reverence, and
recently Eaid that nobody could take the. oath of
office required by the Government in North Caroli

stained who have not 41 bowed the knee to Baal."
Men who are guilty of crime, had rather every
body was like themselves. " Misery loves compa
ay." A. H. Jones was elected to Congress from this
District by the genuine Union, men over an ex
member of the rebel Congress, rebel Colonel. A
better Union man than Jones is not found any
where. The truth of which would be confirmed by
Castle Thunder and many other rebel bastiles, and
by prominent rebels who knew anything of him,
during their cruel reign, if they could tell the truth
on a Union man. I should be very glad if Jones
could get a seat in Congress, if none of the others
did, though I think there are two or three who are
pretty good men.
The Union men of this section will hardly be ap
preciated by those who have been further from the
conflict, nor by those now, after the war is over,
who lived where the Union element is greatly in
the ascendency. Many left the country, some lost

WaekutoTos, March 13, 1866.
Dear Sir-. Your letter of the 10th, inviting me
to address the people of Shelby county, in the city
of Memphis, on the 29th insi, has just been receiv
ed. Gladly would I do so, did not affairs here ren
der it inexpedient for me to be away so long. It is
barely two years since I had the honor of being
heard in your great commercial metropolis. The
object of my address, then, was to urge upon my
fellow-citizens of West Tennessee to accept and con
form to the actual condition of public affairs, if not
desirable, at least inevitable especially emancipa
tion. To my mind, it appeared just as certain then
as it does now.' ; While by resisting and struggling
against it, we could neither prevent it nor retard it,
we could inflict groat injury upon ourselves and our
State. This I sought to avert. Hence my appeal
on that occasion. VJ
Could I speak to the people of our State now, it
would be to the same effect. I should entreat them
to join the moving column in the great onward
march of events. If they throw themselves before
it they will be crushed; if they linger they will be
left behind and lost. ' This is one of the great his
torical epochs which exhibit, at a single view, the
effects of causes operating imperceptibly for genera
tions. It is the tide in affairs which wise men will
take at the flood.
The Union men of Tennessee occupy a peculiar
attitude. During the war, inside the rebel lines, yet
actively resisting the rebellion ; at the first lull of
the fight reorganizing the State government, and re
establishing, on an immovable basis, the civil au
thority; the war over, more thoroughly devoted
than ever to the honor of their country, though
grieved and hurt at being, as they feel, unnecessari
ly denied their rightful participation in its affairs.
It is a romantic loyalty allied to the exalted senti
ments of an earlier age. Their record, to this mo
ment, reads well. By what I cannot help regard
ing a direct interposition of Providence, one of their
number has been elevated to the highest office in the
Republic. Whatever else may be thought, all will
agree that Andrew Johnson is a marked and re
markable man. In a time of such bitter passion, it
was not to be expected that he would escape censure.
It was right, nay, desirable, that the lesding meas
ures of his administration, so pregnant of conse
quences, should undergo the most thorough and
searching criticism, provided it be honest and can
did. All beyond is within the domain of political
As his friends and supporters, we are, for various
reasons, more directly interested in those official acts
and declarations which relate to the rebel States.
Among them the following :
1. The declaration that 44 the rebellion, in its rev
olutionary progress, deprived the people of the State
of all civil government." Proclamation appointing
2. Displacing all persons who were assuming, un
der rebel authority, to exercise official functions in
any of those States, from the highest down; and ap
pointing Provisional Governors, with full powers to
nil tne places made vacant, as tney might deem
3. The injunction to such Governors to assemble
conventions 44 composed of delegates to be chosen by
that portion of the people of the State loyal to the
United States, and no others, for the purposo of al
tering or amending the Constitution thereof"
4. Indicating to the conventions, when assembled,
First, of declaring null their ordinances and acts
Second, of repudiating the rebel debt, as one of
the constituent part3 of the rebellion
Third, of abolishing slavery and ratifying the
pending amendment to tne national constitution.
5. Instructions respecting the treatment of Union
men. After speaking of reports 44 that in appoint
ments to office, and in the recommendations for ap
pointments, the true Union menare totally ig
nored," he adds, 44 while I place no reliance in such
statements, I feel it due to you to advise you of the
extended circulation they have gained, and to im
press upon you the importance of encouragingand
strengthening to the fullest extent, the men of your
State who hare never faltered in their allegiance to
the government. Every opportunity should be made
available to have this known and understood as your
policy and determination. DispaUh to Gov. Perry,
of S. C, Aug. 22, 1865.
6. Hi3 policy towards the freedmen.
"If you could extend the elective franchise to all
persons of color who can read the constitution of the
L mted States in bnglish, and write their names, and
to all persons of color who own real estate valued at
not less than two hundred and fifty dollars, and pay
taxes tnereon, you would completely disarm the ad
versary, and set an example the other States will
follow. This you can do with perfect safety, and
you thus place tho Southern States, in reference to
free persons of color, upon the same basis with the
free States. hope and trust your conventionviill do
this. Dinpateh to Guv. Sharkey, of Miss., Aug. 13,
41 Good faith requires the security of the freedraen
in their liberty and property, their right to labor,
and their right to claim tne just return of their la.
"The freedinan cannot fairly be accused of un
willingness to worn, so long as a aouDt remains
about his freedom of choice in his pursuits, and the
certainty of his recovering his stipulated wages.
The public interest will be best promoted if the
several States will provido adequate protection and
retnidus for tne reeamen. Until this is in some way
accomplished, tnere is no cnance tor the advanta
geous use of their labor; and tho blame of ill-sue
cess will not rest on them." Annual Message, Dec
" I have with Congress tho strongest desire to se
cure to the freed men the full enjoyment of their free
dom and property, and their entire independence
and equality in making contracts for their labor.
"Undoubtedly the freedman should bo protected,
but he should be protected by the civil authorities,
especially by tho exercise of all the constitutional
powers ot tne courts or tne united .state;

remuneration for his labor, he can move to another,
where that labor is more esteemed and better re-
Bdflstroved." and hava rafnsftd t ratifv the Cossti- J
tutional Amendment forbidding its future n'ttmw.
They have, by, every mean at their command, en
deavored to place under the ban the men "who have
sever faltered in their allegiance to tha govern
ment" They have in every instance failed " to ex
tend the elective franchise " to the freedmen, and in
some instances have denied them adequate protec
tion in their liberty and property, their right to
claim the just return of their labor, so that the
Presidont has been compelled to interpose by the or
ganization of the Freedman's Bureau, and some
times by the repressive hand of military authority.
So far from seeking to be represented in Congress
by men of unquestioned loyalty, they have, defiant
ly and in a spirit of bravado, selected men avowedly
and boastfully obnoxious to existing constitutional
and legal tests. They have clamored for Ihe par
don of all the leading, conscious, intelligent traitors,
including the chief conspirator himself. And this
they call supporting the President's policy ! It can
not be concealed that such, conduct has produced
wide-spread and honest apprehension. These peo
ple are now on probation before the country, with a
predisposition largely in their favor. But there i3
naturally a profound solicitude to know whether
their coming back means peace or prolonged hostility.
In grateful contrast is the attitude of Union-lov
ing Tennessee. By the free choice of her loyal cit
izens, and in anticipation of these views and meas
ures of the President, she adopted them in spirit and
to the letter, excepting only the elective franchise to
colored men. This, if we may infer from the late
report of the Committee on Reconstruction, Con
gress is willing should be left to her enlightened
judgment and good intentions. Indeed, as with just
pride we claim the President, so may we rightfully
claim these principles as our principles. They are
but the reproduction of ideas long since familiar to
us, made so, in part, by his own uniform and oft re
peated utterances. Of the rebellious sisterhood,
Tennessee, from the very first, has stood apart and
peculiar. We, her representatives, conscious of
right, could appeal to the country in her behalf.
There she is, all dishonor wiped from her escutcheon !
Judge, then, our mortification, when on the very
day that the President's Veto Message went abroad,
advocating so eloquently the case of voiceless Ten
nessee, by her attitude of loyalty and harmony, by
the patriotism and energy of her injured and be
trayed people, we learned the contumacy of legisla
tors, deserting their assigned posts, expressly to par
alyze our State government. Yet these men, too,
profess to endorse tho President ! Could his bitter
est enemies desire a more humiliating practical com
Some of the same gentlemen, it is said, are now
calling upon the people to approve of this mutinous
conduct by sonding them back to re-enact it. God
forbid! This is their fault. A repetition of it would
fix the responsibility upon those who should know
ingly re-elect them. The consequences could not
fail to be ruinous ; in impairing the financial credit
of the State, so necessary to us at this exigent period ;
in diverting from our borders skilled labor seeking
employment, and capital seeking investment ; and
above all, in prolonging indefinitely our probation
before the country.
I cannot close without an assurance of high re
spect for the gentlemen in whose behalf you write.
I am, very respectfally,
Your obedient servant, ' ; '

requisite to their admission, is a fair illustration of
the hostility of the South to the national laws. The
hrst political act implied a denant and reoeiuous
spirit. They were unwilling to recognize, even at
the recommencement oi tneir political union witn
the North, the authority of Congress to purge itself
of notorious treason, and they purposely made it
impossible for the Government to grant them rep
resentation in its councils without awarding stats to

praise of the President, while they say men who
would'nt stick to the Confederacy, ought to be run
out-of the country. From what I know, they are
making great efforts in high places to make an im
pression that all is right, when it is radically wrong,
and will, where there is any sort of hope, work har
der for power and office than they ever did.
Others may have confidence. The President may,
but if much, it is more than they have in him. If
they had the power this Union would feel it not
the moderate masses, for they have had enough, but
the bigger lights, who kept themselves more secure
ly. They are anxious to keep up the spirit of rebel
lion. On these last topics I may write again. To
be used at your discretion . Respectfully,

Another New Sensation.
THE APPAEATION OF A MAN APPEARS TO
SEVERAL PERSONS AFTER HE HAS BEEN
Dr. Hughes, while standing on the scafl'old with
the rope about his neck, declared that he should be
with the earthly community as much after death as
before, and he seems determined to keep his word.
Among the many persons who called to see Hughes
in his cell before the execution, was an honest butch
er, of the Teutonic persuason. This man, from the j and the great fact judicially established that treason

"He who comes as a representative, having the
qualifications prescribed by the Constitution, to fit
him to take a seat in either of the deliberative bodies
which constitute the National Legislature, must ne
cessarily, according to the intendment of the Con
stitution, be a loyal man, willing to abide by and b3
devoted to the Union, the Constitution of the States.
He cannot be for the Constitution, he cannot be for
the Union, he cannot acknowledge obedience to all
the laws, unless ho is loyal. When the people bend
such men in goodjailh, tney are entitled to represen
tation through them." Address to the Virginia Del

interests of peace and in the interests oi the Union,
the admiscion of every State to its share in public
legislation, when, however insubordinate, insurgent
or rebellious its people may have been, it presents
itself not only in an attitude of loyalty and har
mony, but in the persons of representatives whose

8. The disposal of the traitors.
" It is manliest that treason, most flagrant in
character, has been committed. Persons who are
charged with its commission should have fair and
impartial trials in the highest civil tribunals of the
country, in order that the Constitution and the laws
may be fully vindicated; the truth clearly establish
ed and affirmed that treason is a crime, that traitors
should be punished and the offense made infamous."
No one has labored with more earnestness than
mvself to have the principal, intelligent and con
scious traitors brought to justice, the law vindicated.
moment of his interview with the doomed doctor,
became much afflicted with Hughes on the brain.
Scaffolds and men dangling by the neck were con
stantly flitting before his sleeping and waking eyes.
After the doctor was executed matters grew worse
and worse, the butcher being unable to sleep at all,

Dr. Hughes, dressed in the same suit of clothes that
he wore before leaving the planet, and looking just
as natural as life. The butcher gave one loud, pierc-
ing, and unearthly yell, and fell upon the stable floor
in a swoon. His family hearing the cry, hastened '
to the barn, where he was found just in the act of
recovering. With a wild eye and blanched cheek, he
pointed to the stall, and inquired whether Dr. Hughes :
was still there. Upon a negative answer being re- '
turned, he declared that he had just seen him ; and j
that if he wasn't in the barn he must be in the im- I
mediate vicinity. With an unsteady step, and with
the assistrnce of his wife, the butcher was enabled to
reach the house. He has not yet recovered from the
line supporters and defenders of our glorious stripes
and stars, and of the Constitution of our country
let the leaders, the conscious, intelligent traitors be
punished, and subjected to the penalties of the law."
