The prtttntt of Ileiskell'e attack on Gov. Browa
iow Is an editorial in this paper of the lElh inst.
The rtzl csz is a totally diSfc-rcnt thing, ns wo have
;Lown in other articled in this paper. First, as to
the article in question, and our justification in pub
iisbing it. On the 3d of April Gov. Brownlow spoke
in this city, after he had published the appointment
lour weeks before. No one else was advertised to
epeak. Every person who weiit to the Court House
to hear him did fo underst&ndingly. 11 it sentiments
ere known to every man in this community.
Through letters to various persons, published in this
paper, nd other popery in ;ho Stale: through
ipcecLei delivered at Nashville, and a speech in this
city two weeks beforo, bis opinions on rdl public
aestions Lad boeome familiar to every voter in this
ileiskeli aitoudjd the Governor appointment re
ferred to. In a fc-w minutes after the speaking com
aienced, the writer of this aitido heard Lim cursing
asd denouncing the Governor to a squad of men
around Lira. Had h been a young or middle-aged
man, we would h ive slapped his lying mouth. Be
cause of hi grey hnirs we submitted, and walked to
a different prt of the court room! After the speak
ing was over, we rero told by several of the best
citizens of this p'.ncc (one of whom differs with us
jO politics) that HeUkull Lad characterised as a
''J d lio" the declaration of the Governor that,
'as a class, the newspapers of tho Sor.tk were dis
loyal, and that hostility to the Government and
Union men characterized the editorials cf a uifijor
;ty of Ssuthern journals." He further raid, "the Gov
ernor knew this declaration to be a lie when he made
it." In the issue of our paper following this speei b,
ve stated what HeLkeil hud said, without speaking
jekiadly of hiai, or otherwise commenting on his
bullying conduct, ezcept to promise a reply in oar
nest issue, (one week later,) coupled with the decla
ration that wc would "do justice to the subject.'
In oar is.ac following, of the lfelh, wc published an
editorial of one column, kali of it in very small
type, in which, under the caption of " The Proof, '
ve gave eitra:ts of a most disloyal character from
several of the most influential and largely circulated
journals of Tennessee. In concluding this article
we threw back in tho tooth of Heiskell the epithet

iirty little papor in this city he ctitmpts to reply to
this brticle. lit commences his rtply wUh r. lit, by
iaEeriing that Gov. Brownlow was the author of the
sditorial in the Whig of tho I8ih. Gov. B. was in
Nashville when the article was published, and never
jaw it until he reid it in the paper. Heiskell knew
he did not write it, and lied Knvxingly in asserting
that fce did. Gov. Brownlow would not etndesceid

several gentlemen who heard him, but thej- are pri

Hia heart is so malignant, his lies so palpable, that
instead of injuring the object of his hate they react
upon himself. He is much like the fowler:

There arcs doubtless a good many men in Knox
ville who chuckle in their sleeves that tbey have old ,
Heiskell as their cats-paw to do dirty work, and re
joice over his blackguardism of Gov. Brownlow.
Strange hands planted flowers on the grave of JSero,
and ft is not surprising that men can be found bast
enough to sympathize with such an unmitigated
scoundrel and whit-livered wretch a3 Frederick
Stichinger Heiskell. His abuse can injure no decent
roan. It has been truly said, " It ib not enough that
you are praised by the good, you have failed some
where in your duty if you are not cursed by the
Frederick S. Heiskell can injury no honest man
unless he speaks in kis favor. As to the men, who,
in their private conversation, endorse his slander and
blackguardism, we have only to say they are cow
ards, concealed ulanderers, and afraid io pubticly
proclaim their endorsement. There is not one of this
class who has not a damning record, and an expos
ure of whose acU will not dr.mn them with the hon
est people of the country. Let them shoio their
hands in the work of personal defamation, and they
will learn whether aristocratic social position or the
possession of property will shield them from ex
posure. When long forbearance is construed into
timidity it ceaoes to be a virtue.
TLu is indeed a " Land of Promise" to those seek

so much Etrong talk is out in favor of forming a
new State, East Tennessee is attracting more atten

are thirty-one counties in East Tennessee, extend

The surface of the country rises from the deep
valleys of the streams, by a series of terraces,
stretches away into smooth slopes and culminates
in gently undulating uplands, several hundred feet
above tho level cf the sea. Between each terrace
re intervals, sometimes several miles in breadth,
dne lands for grain, Lay and fruits. Near the large
-treams the land is sometimes broken, but leaving
what are called tho "River Hille," you fall among
vallies of rich and productive lands, which, for
miles, form an unbroken stretch of arable lands,

The boast of East Tennessee is its vast agricultu

oats, rya and potatoes, wth every abundance of
fruit. The natural pastures and fine meadows af

CITIES AND TOWNS.
There are only two cities, and they are Chatta
nooga, bordering on Alabama and Georgia, and
Knoxville, situated ia the centre of the country
both on the line of tbo railroad, and on tbe banks
of the navigable streams mentioned. They are
thriving littlo cities. The principal interior towns
on tbe railroad lo.a west to east, are Cleveland,
Athens, Loudon, New 31arket, Greenevilla, and
Joneborough, on to Bristol. A branch road runs
out to Rogersville. Those towns and others ofT of
the road are progressing rapidly, and aro destined
to Cvjoome manufacturing towns.
THE SOIL AMJ CLIMATE.
TLo soil L unusually good, sometimes mixed with
a sandy loam, sometimes with red clay, and at other
times it is a rich black mould. The climate is the
finest in America, between the extreme cold of the
North and the scorching heat of the South. Dur
ing the beat of summer, tve have a constant refresh
ing breeze, as on tho ocean between the tropics.
Although Lat Tennessee is an agricultural coun
try, iron, coal, copper, lead and zinc, aro abundant,
and ten thousand miners and manufacturers could
find profitable employment in developing the vast
resources. Theso departments of industry offer an

On Thursday evening last I tried to cent j. to.pat
Urton, luminal editor of the Commercial, of this
city. Since the unprincipled pappy has been de
nouncing me for months, in his filthy little 8 by 10
sheet, and boasting on the streets of this city that he
has done so, I deem it due to myself to give the pub
lic a statement of the affair.
At six o'clock, in conversation with a gentkman,
I was sitting on the door-sill of the Exchange and
Deposit Bank, when Patterson passed, going to his
residence from his printing office. When within
about twenty feet of me, with my cane raised, I
started at him, exclaiming, "Stop, you coward
and scoundrel." I said this in a loud voice. At
this instant I was seised and firmy held by the gen
tleman with whom, by chance, I was conversing; one
whose physical strength is at least twice as great as
my own. Patterson did not atop, but halted only long
enough to look at me, and walked rapidly to the
Franklin House, fifty yards distent. When he saw
tbe cane raised to strike him, his whole frame shook
with fear, and his knees smote together like those of
Belshazzcr on the night of that celebrated banquet.
On arriving at the Franklin House he halted, while
I vas held. While he was standing here I was re
leased, the party holding me supposing the affair
terminated. As soon as released I started after him,
exclaiming, in a voice he could hear, "Stop, you
coward and scoundrel." As soon as I started af
ter him hc beat a hasty retreat in the direction of his
residence, about one hundred yards distant. I pur
sued him twenty-five yards and desisted from the
pursuit, because I regarded him as a thorough-bred
four mile pony (?) and saw no hope of overtaking
and caning bini unless I did it in the bosom of his
family. Seven er eight of the most reliable citizens
of this place vitnossed the whole affair, and liave
attested the truth of what I say. Half of them dis
agree with me politically.
An hour and a quarter after I bun him to his
home, he mustered the madinets (?) to return to the
scene of his disgrace, and actually had the pluck (?)
to walk on the side of the street opposite to that on
which I was standing.
The swindler, cowAKDand scocndel has boast
ed very often, in his little copperhead sheet, that he
had " fought four years in the United States army."
In reference to this boast, and his cowardly conduct
on Thursday, a leading member of his party, to a
squad of gentlemen, remarked, on Friday, that he
judged "Patterson got enough of fghtmg during
these four years." Such is the opinion of this en
tire community, without regard to party. I have
met him almost every day for several weeks, and on
nearly every occasion I have seen a pistol protrud
ing from his pocket. That the readers of the Whig
may appreciate the baseness of the man "mankind
forgive the insult" I will slate a few facta in con
nection with his course.
On about the Gth of December 1 met Patterson on
the street. He halted me and said he had business
with me. Taking mo by the arm hc led me into tbe
room where his office now is. On arriving there he
pointed to his printing material, and sai3, " Colonel,
I am preparing to start a paper." I replied I had
heard as much several days before. He continued
" I differ with you politically &i much as men can
differ, but this need not, ought not, disturb our social
relations and make us personal enemies." And,
he continued, " I now pledge you that not one word
personally discourteous of yourself or denunciatory
of your paper shall ever appear in my columns un
less you provoke it by 'making a personal war on me."
I have given the substance of what he said, if not
his exact language. I replied to him, " If there is
no personal controversy between us until I inaugurate
it, there will never be one."
On the 9th of December, (a few days after this
interview) I started to Washington. In a few days
thereafter, his papor was published, and in the first
number, by innuendo, he violated his pledge, volun
tarily given. In the sc:ond number of his paper,
a communication (under an anonymous signature)
appeared assailing this paper and its editor in terms
of indecent personality. This black-guard warfare
on mo he has kept up until I run him on
Thursday. He commenced it in January and I
have never responded to it until recently. For
bearance has been construed by him into timidity,
and he bas been encouraged by it to enact the part
of a braggart and bully.
Until Thursday he sp lurged and put on a defiant
air. Now he is crest-fallen and looks like a "dung
hill chicken." He now walks the streets of Knox
ville with the letters C-O-W-A-R-D indelibly
branded on his forehead. Destitute of trutfi, Iconor,
and courage, as Patterson is kniwn to bt, he is yet a

and cvtsards mho use him as a tool to traduce decent

Opinion of Northern Men.
In our Southern exchangee we see almost daily
abusive articles against Gov. Brownlow, copied from
sheets in Tennessee and elsewhere. We do not in
troduce the subject to enter into a defense of the
Governor against anything his enemies say. We
have not space or inclination to do so. His reputa
tion does not suffer from their a3saults, but is bene
fitted. The Governor has been in public life for thirty
years, and during the wholo time has had many bit
ter and vindictive enemies. Every ponitice man hss.
Every man who takes a bold stend for what ho be
lieves to be right, and bids defiance to his enemi- st
receives their severest denunciation aud calumny.
Gov. Brownlow has been cureed and denounced for
so long a time that he has become accustomed to it
It has no more effect on him than the whistling of
the wind. In fact be has not the slightest objection
to it. He hopes to win the applause of honest men
by being the target of the calumnious shafts of liars,
adulterers, thieves, scoundrels and cowards.
Below we publish an extract from a lengthy let
ter of an eminent citizen of Ohio, and a letter from
a discharged Indiana soldier. Tbey are similar to
letters he is receiving almost daily from every North
ern State. The appreciation in which the Governor
is held by the tru ly loyal men of the country places
him beyond the reach of the calumnious shafts of
" My Dear Governor .
I have read your admirable speeoh before tho
' German Union League." It has the ring of the
true metal, and I can assure you that all the Union
me", in the North regard yon as the noblest Roman
of all the South. All you say about the Democratic
party is as true as holy writ, and I fully agree with
you in sentiment that no calamity could befall this
country so great as the restoration to power of that
party. Sword, pestilence and famine combined are
not more to be deprecated, and v ould not be more
calamitous in results. With it in the ascendant trea
son would be triumphant, and the Union men South,
who have fought rebellion, would not be permitted
to live in peace, much less allowed to occupy places
of trust. On the subject of negro suffrage your po
sition is endorsed by ninety-nine one hundrcths of the
Union men of the North. They are no more radi
cal. To bo afraid of negro equality is to degrade the
white race, and gives the African a possible status
which no old-fashioned abolitionist overclaimed for
him. Shame on the man who fears that the negro
will get ahead of him ! To protect the negro in his
person and property docs not bring about social
equality. Jy own conviction is that the white and
black races should be separated. While they are here
lot them be protected in their person and property.
But I took my pen simply to say all hail noble chief.
You stand upon a rock far above the billows of se
cession fury, and will forever command the admira
tion of every friend of the Union, and every lover
of constitutional liberty."

(The following article is extracted from CoL Jno.
Wrebb's paper, "The Conservative." It is supposed
the words in the parentheses were inserted by the
printer's devil, who, being from the " bureau," is
supposed to be a radical.)
The whole country (that is, the South) is uniting
in favor of a Dictator, (L e. Andy.) iThe last five
months have convinced the people (L; e. the South)
that Congress is a huge nuisance, offensive to the
delicate nostrils of all respectable patriots, (i. e. the
South ;) and should be removed as a defunct, putrid
tumor on the body politic, (i. e. the South.) Indeed
it is wonderful that such wise men as-Washington,
Madison and Pickney (i. c. the South) should ever
have been so foolish as to have advocated a Con
gress, what need is there of a congress ? If the
President (i. e. Andy) can reject any measure passed
by Congress, and need not approve any unless he
choose, (how condescending in Andy !) and if a law
is passed over his veto can refuse to execute it, (i. e.
the Civil Rights Bill,) why not allow him to make
the laws altogether, first and last? Have not kings
and emperors made all the laws of tbe world for the
last C,000 years? Would Christ have been horn
any sooner if there had been no kingj ? In fact did
he not select as the era of his birth the very age
which witnessed the destruction of tbe Roman Sen
ate, and the inauguration of an emperor ? Besides,
all history shows that immediately after great civil
wars, legislative bodies have invariably been either
destroyed or silenced. (Bat how about after rebel
lions ?) The Roman Senate had its Caesar, the Brit
ish Parliament its Cromwell, the French Assembly
its Napoleon, and the American Congress " can
profit by their example!" (i. e. will have its Andy
Johnson.) Why destroy the logical unity of his
tory ? Let Johnson abolish Congress and vindicate
the truth of history. Let him (i. e. the Dictator
Andy) take the whole government in his own hands
I know he is willing and anxious (eh?) and so is
the whole country, (i. e. the South.) What is Con
gress but a mob of gabbling Radicals, who have
their harangues put into shape at the public expense
by government printers so as to be intelligible, draw
their mileage and their pay, frank cart-loads of let
ters, preach negro equality, drink mean whisky, get
drunk, and abuse day and night all honest, respec
table and Union loving men ? (i. c. the South.) And
yet this huge abomination costs us many millions of
lolfars. ( Easy there, Colonel !) I call for a Dicta
tor, (i. e. Anuy.) Let him spunga this Congress
out, and scatter his " yeller kivers " among tho whole
horde of Radical office holders, sending every one
of them with the Civil Rights Bill posted on his
back, to make bureaus for the freedmen. (I see,
Colonel, you are after office yourself. " Thai s what's
the matter f' ) Away with all the ' Radicals ! Cru
cify them ! Give us " Barabbas!' (i. e. Jeff. Davis,
of Fortress Monroe.)

Satan has got out of prison, (ho'd never get out
of Libby or Andersonville,) and Gog and Magog
are gathering for battle, (i.e. Sumner, Stevens, Phil
lips, and the defunct fowl that quacks.) Rise to the
" height of this great occasion," thou hope and anchor
of our salvation ! (i. e. Andy, I suppose ) You have
had " greatness thrust upon you." An accident (i
e. Booth) has made you President. Be not the pup
pet (i. e. the pet pup) of fortune any longer. Create
vour own destiny. Bare your richt arm, strike
quick, strike hard, strike now now or never ! this

(i. e. the South. I hope Andy's shirt sleeves are so
tight mind you I say shirt sleeves, not Andy him
self that he cant't bare his arm, and therefore will
not be able to strike.)
Then will come millenial days ! (i. e. when Andy's

neck in the Capitol. Phillips will dangle from

will survive, as Andy doesn't " waste his ammuni

News, the Richmond Examiner, and the National
Intelligencer, will find "the winter of their discon

that word not meant for Satanianl) No elections,
no taxes, no revenue stamps, no negro soldiers, no

Tbe New Democratic Partj.
The Washington Intelligencer, the President's
rgan, calls upon all the party organizations opera
ting against the Union party, to merge themselves
at once into the new Johnso?i part', and combine
their war upon Congress. It says :
There is in this city a national organisation of
Republicans alone ; there is the National Johnson
organization, composed, as we have before stated, of
Republicans, former Democrats, and eminent South
ern conservatives. The old Democratic element has
also an organization. Let us say to all these, and
there is a disposition among tho masses to establish
People s Clubs for Johnson, to act ot their own voli
tion independently, and with a view simply and
singly to carry Andrew Johnson in triumph over
the tools of a revolutionary and usurping tyranny
in Congress, whose star-chamber directory is a
"dreadful idol, secret as the gloom of graves, and
accesEible only by cringing supplication."
Herein the thing is openly avowed, and eminent
Southern traitors are to constitute the governing
power in the new party. We don't go into this or
ganization, certain !
The Intelligencer further remarks, as a means of
shivering tho Union party:
This powerful party is only to be shivered by di
versions of the patriotic and conscientious members
of the former Republican party, acting in conjunc
tion with all forms of organization, that, leaving the
"dead past to bury its dead," have an eye single to
the overthrow of the dreaded star chamber usurpa
tion. The Rebel Johnsonites will have a lively time in
organising upon the ruins of the " powerful party ''
that fought the war through and put down the re

Pajlng Loyal Men Or Losses.
We lay before oar readers this week the bill in
troduced into the Senate by Mr. Senter, of Grainger,
to compensate the loyal men of Tennessee for their
losses by the war. This ia the measure lately urged
upon the Legislature by the Governor in a special
message, and one he has labored to have passed - by
this General Assembly. Our information from
Nashville is, that it is a popular measare with both
branches of the Legislature, and will be the law of
fb.e State beyond all question in a very short time.
The issues of the State will be six per cent interest
paying Treasury Notes, running ten years, and the
cupons payable once a year, and these will betaken
for taxes and all other State dues. The bonds will
be issued in denominations of $50, $100 and $500,
thus creating a sound and convenient currency.
The Governor and Secretary of State will have the
engraving done as soon as the bill passes both houses,
and in the meanwhile the Commissioners will con
vene and pass upon claims. A few millions of this
money, issued upon the credit of the State, and the
integrity of the Federal Government, will relieve
our people before the first of August. Whilst the
rebels and copperheads are abusing the Governor,
he is laboring to serve the suffering loyal men of the
State in something more substantial than words.
The real people will see who their friends are, and
they will not fail to appreciate them, and their noble
deeds in their favor. But see the bill :
Senate bill No. 364, by Mr. Senter : To indemni
fy loyal citizens for losses sustained in putting down
Section 1. Be it further enacted by the General
Assemblg of ihe State of Tennessee, That the State

The devoted loyalty of East Tennessee under the
embarrassing circumstances and tragical scenes en
acted by the aristocrats and demagogues from other
Southern States, and the ether sections of our ovn
Stato, during the past war, has given us a brilliant
page in the history of our country. On the other
hand, tho devoted disloyalty of the other sections
of tho State, has given them a dark page in the
history of infamy and crime. From the time we
took our stand so firmly for the Union, the rebels of
the other sections have encouraged and enkindled
a burning hatred toward us. After many hard
fought battles, in which the East Tennessee troops
figured conspicuously, as participants, on tho side
of the Union, the rebels were compelled to yield,
and acknowledge the banner of our country as the
banner of their country. Compelling them to suc
cumb to the laws of the laud has not, in the least,
diminished their hatred toward us. Their bitter
feelings can be learned by any one visiting that por
