The public will bear witnees that whilst a dirty
little daily of thi city has been abusing the senior
editor of this paper, and copying into its prostituted
columns the abuse of other?, until very recently thif
paper bat taken no notice of any thing said. The
senior editor has not been in charge of the paper,
and has occupied a position that his cowardly as
sailants supposed would forbid his doing them jus
tice, lie proposes to disabuse their minds during
the hot weather. Having potted himself as to the
life and character of the dirty, cowardly swindler,
who fathers their articles, and does the dirty work
they are too cowardly and proud to do, we will ven
tilate him as the representative of a pack of unmiti

they escape the exposure their deceit, treachery,
swindling, and numerous acts of perfidy deserve, let
their pretensions in society bo what they may. They
may do their worst now, for we have made up our
minds to parade both lb. ir names and deeds before
the people of East Tennessee, let the cost be what it
may. Their deceitful smiles and pretended friend

say this in no spirit of boasting, or with any wish
to intimidate we mean what we my, and we will

To the Public
In March last, I delivered a speech in Knoxville,
before the Union German League, written out
before hand, and systematically arranged. On the
4th of April it appeared in the Wnio as it was
spoken. In it this paragraph occurs :
"The Fnvi'lculs veto of this measure may have
been intended a a rebuko to some extreme men of
the IS'orth; :md it contained some objectionable
features, his veto may have been honest and con
scientious, and afl'ording no grounds for a split be
tween the President and Congress, but for some pri
vate facts whieh have come to my knowledge. I
state them with perfect freedom, and pledge myself
for their correctness. Ine bill was taken to the
President by Major Generals Iloward and Fisk, and
read section by section, before it was introduced by
Congress. Gen. Iloward was, for the most part,
author of it. Gen. Fisk objected to some of its fea
tures, but the President met him in argument, and
defended those very points. In a word, he approved
the bill and promised it his signature. He after
ward got into a quarrel with Messrs. Sumner and
Stevens, extreme men of the North, and he turned
about to affiliate with the extreme men of the South,
veho are even more dangerously radical than the
Radicals of tho North. lie should have stated hi-
oljection then, and prevented this collision between
him and his friends. So much for the veto of this
Upon my return to Nashville from East Tennes
see, I found the following letter in the paper? :

"Dear General Your letter, enclosing Gover
nor Brownlow s speech, at Knoxville, March 24, is
received. An error seems to prevail with regard to
the Freedmen's Bureau Bill.
"Many papers have said that I read the bill to
the President. Now the Governor asserts that you
and I read it to him section by section. He (the
Governor) has been misinformed.
"I sent my report to the President, recommend

Trumbull's bill. I did converse with the President
with regard to these recommendations, but never
read or discussed the said bill with him before its

implied in your letter; certuinly, no such joint

Signed "O. O. Howakd,
"Major General Commissioner.
"Brevet Major General, C. B. Fisk, Assistant
Commissioner for Tennessee and Kentucky."
Gen. Fisk said in conversation with me, on his
return from "Washington, that the President im
pressed both himself and Gen. Howard with the be
lief that he was tho friend of the bill, and that they
were since surprised at the veto. I have conversed
with Gen. Fisk since then and he recollects that I
told him the President would veto the bill, and he
replied that he thought not, founding his faith upon
what the President had said to him, Howard and
others, in their separate visits to him. Others to
whom Gen. Fisk stated the case, both officers, cler
gymen and citizens, got the impression that the two
Generals were together when the President "coa
lfrt(, about the bill, and when it was read. The
facts are as Generals Howard and Fisk state, that
bo "joint reading'' occurred, as between the Presi
dent and the two Generals, nor was the bill read by
either of them "section by section,'' but as the proof
shows, it was read to the President by Senator
Trumbull not,lsection by section,' but straight
along thro'iph. I say this much in justice to Gen.
Fisk, whom I know and esteem as a true soldier,
and a Christian gentleman . This fact Gen. How
ard knew, but ha omitted to state in his letter, un
intentionally 1 presume.
Gen. Howard draws a distinction between con
certing and di-cussing with the President. I am
willing to accept his language, and to admit that
what he calls concerting, I called discussing. I am
willing to concede that what I called Gen. How
ard's bill, I should have called his "report" the
recommendations on which Senator Trumbull
foandod the bill upon, when he drew it up at the
instance of Gen. Howard. But I cannot retract the
assertion that "Gen. Howard was, for the most part,
the author of the bill,'' and consequently deemed
its passage important to the cause he had so much
at heart. I have never seen Gen. Howard, but I
have a very high appreciation of his moral charac
ter and military services mWi higher than fie trill
rind the President ha .'
But the country calls for light on this dark subject,
and I am prepared to add other evidence. One of
the editors of the Chicago Tribune, Senator Trum
bull's State organ, writes from Washington under
date of April Pth, and says, with violence of em
The letter of Gen. Howard, recently published in
the Republican of this city, contradicting the asser
tion of Gov. Brownlow, that the Bureau Bill wus
ubmitted to the President by Gen. Howard and
Gen. Fisk, who together read it to him, section by
section does not effect the only important issue; as
the Republican, would have its readers believe, and
a hasty reading might seem to indicate.
The General prudently confines himself to the
specific allegation, and says that he and General
Fisk did not go together, and adds that they did not,
either of tbem, present, to the President, the bill
due form. jHe observes, incidentally, that he had in
deed discussed the subject mntter of the bill irifh the
President in several free conversations. If it could
have ben done without seeming to go out of his
way, he would gladly have added that Senator
Trumbull took the b 'dl from out of his hands, and, in
accordance witli an understanding between them , sub
mitted it to the President, who. after a careful read
ing, raised no objection. "
It is of no importance to the public who carried the
bill to the White Houp. and of still less importance
whether General Howard took it in hit own hand
or agreed with Mr. Trumbull tbut the one should
take it for both ; but it is of present, and will be of
historic importance that the President found no
treason in a measure before it had received the sanc
tion of both Houses of Congress, which immediate
ly thereafter he discovered to le unspeakably mis
chievous in every section.
Mr. Trumbull has already announced to the
country from his place in the Senate, that the bill
teas submitted, and was twt objected to. This has
not been denied at the White House, and never
Now, if it be not true that Gen. Howard and Sen
ator Trumbull instead of Gen. Fisk, took the bill
to the President and read it, "it is due to the Presi
dent and to truth, to correct these statements that
are now to currently reported." . And if it be not
true that the able Senator did not annouoe this fact
to the country from h'u place in the Senate, it ought
also to be corrected, for these statement together
place the President U worse predicament befere the
world than my statement do, founded upon what
mytelf and othen understood to be the spirit and
purport of Gen. risk's remarks. Instead of Gene
ral Howard and risk, it turns out that Howard
and Trumbull carried the Bureau Bill to the Presi
dent, and "according to an understanding between
them," the latter read it-not "section by section,"
as I erroneously stated the case, but u vhole;
and after a "careful reading." the President "rais
ed no objection." No wonder these two Major
Generals and this able Senator were astonished at
the veto !
To show that the gentleman of the Chicago Tri
bune has correctly represented Senator Trumbull, I
subjoin two brief extracts from the Senator's speech
as published in pamphlet form :
.'In conclusion, Mr. Trumbull said : Mr. Presi
dent, I have now gone through this Veto Message
replying with what patience I could command to its
various objections to the bill. Would that I could
stop here, that there was no occasion to go further ;
but justice to myself, justice to the State whose
Representative I am, justice to the people of the
whole country, in legislating for whose behalf I am
called to participate, justice to the Constitution I
am called to support, justice to the rights of Amer
ican citizenship it secures, and to human liberty
now imperiled, requires me to go further. Gladly
would I refrain from speaking of the spirit of this
measure, of the dangerous doctrines and contradic
tions of its author, of his encroachments upon the
constitutional rights of Congress, of bis assumption
of unwarranted powers, which if persevered in and
not checked by the people must eventually lead to
a subversion of the Government and the destruc
tion of liberty. Congress in the passage of the bill,
under no consideration, sought no controversy with
the President. So far from it, Vie b'dl was proposed
tcith a view to carry out what men supposed to be the
views of the President, and was submitted to him be
fore its introduction into tlie Senate. I am not about
to relate private declarations of the President, but it
is right that the American people should know that
the controversity which exists between him and Con
gress in reference to this measure is or his own
" Feeling the importance of harmonious action
between the different departments of the Govern
ment, and an anxious desire to sustain the Presi
dent, for whom I had always entertained the highest
respect, had frequent interviews with him during
the early part of the session. Withott mentioning
anything said by him, I may with perfect safety
state that, acting from considerations which I have
stated, and believing that the passage of a law by
Congress securing equality in civil rights when de
nied by State authorities to frcedmen and all other
inhabitants of the United States, would do much to
relieve anxiety in the North to induce the Southern
States to secure these rights by their own action and
thereby remove many of the obstacles to an early
reconstruction, prepared the bill substantially as it
noic returns with the President's objections. After
the bill was introduced and printed, a copy was fur
nished him and at a subsequent period when it was
reported that he was hesitating about signing the
Freedmen's Bureau Bill, he was informed of the
condition of the Civil Rights Bill then pending in
the House, and a hope expressed that if he had any
obiections to anv of its orovisions. he woidd make
thtm known to its friends that they might be remedied
if not destructive of the measure; that there was
believed to be no disposition on the part of Congress
and certainly none on my part to have bills presen
ted to him which he would not approve. lie necer
indicated to me, nor, so far as I know to any inf Us
friends, the least objection to any of the provisions of
the bM till after its passage, How could he consis
tently with himself ? The bill was framed, as was
supposed, in entire harmony with his views, and cer
tainly, in harmony with what he was then, and has
since been doingm protecting frecdman in their civil
rights all through the rebellious States."
One other document, if the reader please, and I am
done for the present. The Washington correspon
dent of the Cincinnati Commercial, of April 12th,
The letter of General Howard, recently published
in the Republican of this city, contradicting the as
sertion of Governol Brownlow that the Bureau Bill
was submitted to the President by General Howard
and Goncral Fisk, does not assert, as some have
supposed, that the bill was not submitted to the
President with General Howards knowledge and in
accordance with his expressed desire, before being in
troduced in the Senate. It only says that Governor
Brownlow was mistaken, inasmuch as the bill was
not submitted in form by either of the officers the
Governor name, although the subject matter of the
bill had formed the topic of several conversations be
tween these officers and the President, by Senator
Trumbull, in accordance with an understanding be
tween the Senator and General Iloward, who ear
nestly desired that the President's views should be
heard and met in advance.
The only important phase of the question is found
on the side toward the President ; the public being
concerned to know, not whether the paper was ta
ken to the White House by one man or another, but
whether it was taken there at all.
Senator Trumbull has gone so far as to notify the
country from his seat in the senate Chamber, that
the bill was submitted to the President in advance,
and was not objected to. This assertion has not
been denied from the White House, and will
not be; and just here the matter may as well rest.
This writer may have got his information from
Gen.Howard since. In the third paragraph follow
ing, in the same letter he states in reference to large
contributions received from England, "Gen.How
ard requests me to say,'' &c. But with these docu
ments and remarks, I submit this question to an
impartial public, perfectly willing to abide their
verdict. Whether tho bill vetoed was right or wrong
is no business of mine ; but as I have said before, I
say again the veto of the bill came with a bad
grace from the President, committed as he was to
W. G. Brownlow.
Knoxville. June 5th, 1806.
Joining tbe Johnson Club.
A clever and patriotic man, who served faithfully
in the Union army, enquired of us a few days ago
to know what this handing of papers around for
signatures to the Johnson Club meant, and if we
intended to join ? We answer, that it means the
organization of a new Southern Rebel Democratic
Party, to make war upon the the National Union
Party in the next Presidential race, and this is what
it will lead to and where it will end. There will be
but two parties in tho country, let the several or
ganizations profess what they will the Union party
and the Rebel party. We shall not join a Johnson
Club because we belong to tb6 Great National Re
publican Party. We shall not join one of these Clubs
because we ttand by Cong res, and don't intend to
commit ourselves against that body of firm, tried,
and true Union men. We shall not join one of these
Clubs because we don't intend to commit ourselves
against the candidate of the True Union Party for
the Presidency in 18t38. We will not join one of
these Clubs because, when another rebellion is
brought on, as it will be in a few years, we don'tin
tend to be forced to hunt up proof to show that we
were on the side of the Federal Government. We
shall not join one of these Clubs, because we don't
intend to make eur bed with the Democracy, and
with their new recruits from the Union forces. This
is, however, a free thing, and gentleman can join
any Club they fancy. It was a free thing five years
ago when men were urged to join the side of the
Confederacy. We refused then, and we refuse now,
because we go with the undivided National Repub
lican party, that fought the war, stood by the army
of the Union, and voted men and money to put
down the Into Southern Democratic War. If living,
we intend to support their ticket for President and
Vice President; and if dead, we wish our record to
show that when the Southern rebels captared John
son they did not capture us with him ! We need
not be told that the new Johnson party are using an
abundance of money and patronage. All men must
now take sides with the party of patriotism or the
party of the spoils, and we go with the former.
We stand by tho party of the country if we stand
alone in Tennessee. We can neither be coaxed, flat
tered, abused, bribed or frightened into the ranks of
the rebels, no matter by what name they call them
selves, or under what flag they muster.
Several rebel papers admit, in their leading ed
itorials, that the feelings of the Southern people are
more hostile to the Union than they were twelve
months ago. Why is it ? They then felt thoy had
been thrashed, and wanted now to be let alone and
allowed to live. Now they feel that they are backed
up by the President, and they insolently claim the
right to control every thing, and especially to bully
The new Custom House officer of New York has
notified the army of employees under him that tak
ing sides with Congress as against the President
will be declared sufficient cause of removal. This

characterize the " My Policy " party now organiz
ing clubs all ever the country.

Case or Old Fred. Heiskell
Thif old whisky-rotted, broken-down political
hack, has been for several months abusing and black
guardiag the senior editor of the Knoxville
Whig, through the columns of a dirty little daily,
conducted by an insolent swindler, and a degraded
little rebel sympathizer used as a tool by a den of
cowardly conspirators. To all this blackguardism
and abuse we have made no reply, and all the re
ply we propose now is to set forth the causes jaf this
slang, that the public may appreciate the assaults of
this poor old grey-haired traitor.
His two sons, and three sons-in-law, went into the
rebellion, acting a prominent part, and the old man
remained professedly on the Union side, pretending
to be a Union man, so as to serve the rebel interests
in his family, which, thus far, he has utterly failed
to do to any purpose. To establish his loyalty at the
breaking out of the rebellion, he contrived to have
himself arrested by the rebel authorities. This was
to give him force among Union men when he
brought his patriotic son Jo. upon the track for the
Supreme Bench, and got him so badly beaten by
Judge McKinney. From that day to thi his lying
old tongue has been active in the defamation of all
who refused to vote for Jo. Old Fred, took no of
fense at us because of the signal defeat of his bush
whacking son, that we are aware of, as we were in
no wise connected with the race. Having been an
inveterate old office-seeker all his life, he applied to
us after General Burnside took the country for aid
in getting some position that would enable him to
make some money. Not having assisted him, we
suppose is the first offense we gave him.
The second cause of offense was the publication in
the Whig of August 31, 1864, of the following
CAPTURE OF JOSEPH B. UKISKELL.
This man is a rebel congressman, a lawyer of very
fair talents, a citizen of Rogersville, and was recent
ly captured by the command of Brig. Gen. Gillem,
and is now in the military prison of this city, where
he is likely to remain for some time to come. His
position at the breaking out of the rebellion was
one of respectability, and his relatives and friends
are of the first respectability in this end of the
State. But the law and those who administer it,
civil and military, have no right to pass over the
grave offences of one of the very worst men in the
country, because of the respectability and clever
ness of his friends and relatives. Rather, his rank
in society, his better raising and education, all hav
ing been abused by him, and used to promote tbe
most infamous rebellion the world has ever known,
ought to call down upon him the most rigorous en
forcement of the law, and the application of its just
penalties. An example should be made of all such
man, and unless it is done, the prosecution of the
war is a failure, and our gallant Union soldiers have
fought, bled, and died to no purpose. The loyal
men of the country have been fighting, suffering
and dying for almost four years, to put down a
wicked rebellion brought on and kept up by just
such men as Joseph B. HeiskcU. It is now time the
halter should be summoned to do its appropriate
work, and no man in tho ranks of the rebellion is a
more suitable man to commence upon than this same
No man has ever been brought into this city as a
prisoner, since the Federal occupation of East Ten
nessee, over whose capture and confinement there
has been such general rejoicing as in the case of this
man. Nor is there a man in the length and breadth
of this end of the State, against whom there is a
more deep-rooted and bitter feeling of hatred, among
loyal men. Why is this ? And what created such
feelings of dislike? The proper answer to these
questions shall conclude our remarks upon this sub
ject. 1. Mr. Heiskell, as a member of the Richmond
Congress, voted for, and advocated with great zeal,
every severe measure for the punishment of Union
men in East Tennessee, and that looked to their sub
jugation and humiliation. And being a native East
Tennesseean, and a man of talents, he exerted a
large influence for evil.
2. He is said to be the writer of, as well as one of
the signers to the bloody petition to Jeff. Davis, to
to adopt more rigid measures in order to secure the
arrest and punishment of East Tennessee Union
men, and calling for the execution of the leaders, by
way of example to tbe masses.
3. Mr. Heukell was in the Chimney Top Raid,
in arms against the Union men, and took a promi
nent part in seeking to kill, wound and capture
them for which he will long be held in hateful re
membrance. 4. He was in the ByrdRaid, and ischannble with
the tying up, and shooting of poor old Byrd full of
bullet-holes, because he could have prevented it.
5. He was in the Carter county Raid, in arms
against and fighting to destroy his own constituents.
6. He was in the Brooks' Ferry Raid in Hawkins
county, and with his double-barrel shotgun fired on
Brooks and Price, his neighbors, who will be fine
witnesses against him in an indictment for treason,
now pending before the Federal Court in this city.
7. He was one of a committee of five at Rogers
ville to wait on Lougstrcet, and urge him to remain
in East Tennessee, and assure him that there was
abundant supplies to furnish his army. He rode
round with the rebel officers and pointed out Union
farms, and among them the farms of Kyle and
Blevins, upon whom brigades quartered, eating up
their substance and destroyed their timber.
8. Before his capture he paid different visits to the
jail in Rogersville, where as many as thirteen Fed
eral prisoners were confined, soldiers and citizens,
and abused and villified them. Gallant man, to
thus abuse prisoners looking through the iron grates
of a rebel prison. One of them, Houston Sewell,
the son of a widowed mother, at whose table Heis
kell has been fed time and again. These prisoners
were released by eur soldiers when Heiskell was
captured, and we have the facts from some of them.
Can such a man expect any quarters at the hands
of the Federal authorities? Does he deserve quar
ters ? Certainly not, and if he was at liberty he
could not live twenty-four hours within the reach of
the men he has abused, persecuted and outraged.
Indeed, there are men of pluck and character in his
own county who are uncW a solemn oath to kill him
whenever they can get a chance at him.
The third cause of offense was the disgraceful
beating he got in a race for Congress last August.
Of five candidates in the field, this old rebel conspi
rator ran through at the tale end. After flooding
the district with circulars, writing letters, and dis
tributing tickets, he received, in the county of Knox,
where he has lived all his days, tho rise of one hun
dred votes! What a rebuke! What adds to his
mortification, the same people, of tho same county
of Knox, gave us the ri-e of twn thvuntd votes for
the office of Governor.
It is said that a charter came up to the Legisla
ture from Memphis, and that his patriotic son Jo's
name was striken out on account of his treason.
This just rebuke, if administered, is charged to our
account, and constitutes a fourth cause of offense,
although we arc not aware that such a thing was
done. We endorse tho act, and pass it to the credit
of a loyal General Assembly, if it were done.
The patriotic son, w ho resides at Memphis, pre
pared a cunning bill for the benefit of rebels, and
sent it to Nashville, with a private letter of instruc
tion how to work it through the Legislature. To
whom was it sent? Thereby hangs a tale! It was
not proposed, as it was thought " Brownlow's Leg
islature " would not pass it, and this constitutes our
fifth cause of offense against the peace and dignity
of this remarkable family ! Will those to whom the
bill and letter of instructions were entrusted, remove
the seal of privacy, and allow us to edify the pub
lic with the reading of both ?
The last that we heard from old Fred, officially, he
was tramping round town with a book under his
arm, soliciting subscribers to the Johnson Club! In
this way he expects to accomplish one of two things
cither he expects to be rewarded by the President
with an office, or he expects to ring in votes enough,
and get tbem committed to him, to elect him to some
There is wnough of decernment left to the people,
by the ravages of war, to see through and appreci
ate the tricks of old political hacks and disguised
traitors, and when they come before them for their
votes they will do them justice. To the people we
refer this, and all other cases of misrepresentation,
trick and treason, for settlement, and with their ver
dict we shall be satisfied.
In brief, a case exemplifying more malice, more
depravity, more scoundrelism, more contempt for
generosity, more baseness, more blind devotion to a
sinking cause, and a disgraced band of leaders, and
more profligacy, ingratitude and worthlessness, has
seldom or never been made public. A fugitive from
the fold of truth, the walks of sobriety, and the
abodes of patriotism, honor and integrity, the poor
old apostate is held in utter contempt by the people
who, until recently, have respected his grey hairs.
Company Don't Suit Us.
We have examined with minuteness the crowd
who started off in the wild chase, throwing up their
hats for Johnson, and crying out a ' Second Wash
ington." At the North they are the men who op
posed the war, refused men and money to carry it
on, and denounced Lincoln as a usurper, and re
joiced over his assassination. They are the men
who held the Cfiicago Convention, and supported the
McClellan ticket In the South every traitor that
took up arms against the old Government very bush
whacker, every Jayhawker, and every rebel sympa
thiser, including all the weak-kneed Union men,
soured because of the loss of the negro, and all who
opposed the re-election of Lincoln, are now doing
battle under the Johnson Flag. All who wanted
him hung for his Union speeches, while Military
Governor, are now most active in forming Johnson
Clubs. And the editors who advocated hoisting the
black flag, and tbe driving of all Union families out
of the South, now edit the Johnson organs. This
sort of company don't suit us, because we think they
are aiming to bring about another rebellion, and to
regain what they lost The great body of these men
would not touch Johnson with a ten-foot pole, if
they believe him true to the Union, as .in 1861, when
they sought to take his life. If such a pack of men
were to join in our praise, we should doubt our own
integrity, and therefore it is that we will not fall
into the support of any man they favor.

TnK Comino Draft. Two years ago, the
good people of this country were terribly excited
about the draft, and every possible expedient was
resorted to in order to avert its hardships. Having
passed through that season of tribulation, Ameri
cans can understand the extent of the conscription
now going on in Europe, which is thus described
by a correspondent :
"Between the Bosphorus and the Baltic a errand
j conscription is proceeding. There is not a landed
j proprietor, a simple shop-keeper, a stolid me
! chanic, a wind-beaten mariner, anywhere, who is
' not moved to terror or enthusiasm. Now, if ever,
'' the great adjustment of differences in Europe is
aooui w do insuiuieu. " immeaitue parties to
the outbreak are Italy aud Prussia against Austria,
but, when these 'great opposite?' clash together,
there will be these minor quarrels to le ssti?Sd."
Still Traducing the Soldiers.
The Democrats finding it impossible to obtain the
soldier's votes, have returned to the same style of
abuse they indulged in throughout the war. The
Democratic papers are, of course, the avenues
through which the abuse finds its way to the public.
The New York News, the Chicago Times, and the
Cincinnati Enquirer, are among the most prominent
of these papers. As a specimen, we give the follow
ing from the Enquirer, of a recent date. This, it
will be remembered, is the paper which so shame
fully slandered the soldiers' wives, that the propri
etors were compelled to apologize to the public for
the language used. It is suitable that such a paper
should now attack the soldiers themselves .
Can we, in retrospect, follow tho track of the
Grants, the Shermans and tbe Sheridans across the
fairest portion of this continent, and realize no sen
sations of shame and disgust at what was achieved,
and the incidents that were inseparable from the
achievements? Why dissolve in tears over the mis
fortunes of Valparaiso ? The inhabitants of that
city were only turned out. iney weresparea tnose
last offenses of degradation and pollution which
were inseparable from the occupancy of Southern
cities by our armies; and which, while they were
occurring, we regarded with indulgence, if not with
encouragement. Did religion, in its Northern man
ifestations, protest against the robbery and pillage,
by men and officers, of the homes of Southern non-
comDaiants: va noiy cnasuty uatua iu vuuuu
face in indignant floods at the thought of South
ern wives and daughters ruthlessly violated ?
Nursing the Rebels.
The New York Sun does not like the manner in
which Secretary Seward is nursing the rebels. It
We think Mr. Seward is investing entirely too
much Government money for conciliatory purposes.
The Richmond Examiner was notorious throughout
the war for its pre-eminent bitterness against tbe
Government and for its defense of every iniquity
that sprang from the rebellion. Since the termina
tion of the war it has been noted for its spirit of
vindictiveness against everything North of Mason
and Dixon's line. It is the acknowledged represen
tative of the irrepressible and implacable class of
ex-rebels. General Terry suppressed its publication,
not long ago, because of its virulency, and the Pres
ident allowed it to be reissued on the condition that
it should in future be less incendiary in its tone.
Since then it has improved a little very little. The
Examiner has commenced the publication of tbe
United States laws, by authority of the State De
partment. According to its announcement it has
been awarded the job of publishing all the laws that
were enacted by Congress from tho beginning of the
rebellion down to the present time. The publica
tion will cost the Government a large sum of money
how large wc cannot say; but the desirability of
the job may be understood from the fact that Ad
ministration papers always scheme, wire-pull, and
work like beavers to get it. Nobody now reads the
laws in this form, and, therefore, the money paid for
their publication is just so much thrown away; but
if they must be published in Virginia, why not bol
ster up such a paper as the Richmond Republic a
good Union paper that was forced to suspend a few
days ago because of its Unionism. Can the Gov
ernment afford to pay several thousand dollars to
" conciliate " the Richmond Examiner ?
Large Conntj Meetln
The Union men of Washington county have all
been in councel at Jonesborough. Col. Tatton pre
siding, Capls. Grisham and Deakins acted as Secre
taries, and Col. Patton, Dr. Drake and Mr. Owens
addressed the meeting. A Committee of eleven re
ported the following preamble and resolutions, which
were unanimously adopted:
Whereas. The true Union men of Washington
county have met at the court house in Jonesboro' to
take into consideration the present disturbed condi
tion of the business and social relations of this coun
ty, and whereas-for some time past a few bad men
. . i a !Li ,-vv:. .
have been roaming me country ai wgui, muuuiu,
beating and ordering away peaceable and law-abiding
citizens; and whereas, we are satisfied that such
lawlessness and anarchy will ultimately undermine
the very foundations of society; therefore,
Resolved, 1st, That the impression attempted to
be created abroad, and to abuse the minds of good
citizens at home that the true Union men have been
instigating and encouraging this lawlessness and vi
olence is false.
Resolved, 2d, That the citizens of Washington
county, here assembled, loyal to the Constitution
and tbe Union, and faithful to the principles which
have carried the country triumphantly through the
war, and convinced of the absolute necessity of an
early and complete pacification of the country, that
the people hitherto torn and divided by intestine
strife may all engage in their proper pursuits, reap
the rewards of their labor, and gradually build up
our former prosperity and peace.
Resolved, 3d, That we do most solemny pledge
ourselves to render all the assistance in our power
to the civil authorities to aid them in bringing such
criminals to justice, and subjecting them to condign
Resolved, 4th, That the late Federal soldiers in
our midst have given undoubted evidence of devo
tion to the government of the United States, and of
their desire to see the laws of the same re-established,
that we do most earnestly request them to co
operate with us in our attempts to suppress the law
lessness that prevails in our midst at the present
Resolved, 5th, That we believe that the lawless
ness prevailing in Washington county is contrary to
the will of an overwhelming majority of the citi
zens, and is confined to a few bad and abandoned
men, and we hereby declare that the whole power
of the country, moral and physical, shall be used
for its suppression and the re-establishment of law
Resolved, 6th, That there is in our midst a class of
men who have been identified with the late rebellion,
and who have, as we believe, accepted the resuit in
good faith, and whe have given undoubted evidences
of their earnest and heart-felt desire to return to
their allegiance to the government of the United
States, and looking, as we do, to the true interests of
the whole country, and believing that such men
want our protection, we do hereby pledge ourselves
that so long as they continue their present course we
will do all in our power to prevent them from be
ing molested in any way.
Resolved, 7th, That to carry out the course indica
ted in these resolutions, we recommend that each
civil district hold meetings and appoint at least six
firm and resolute men to hunt down and bring to
justice such violators of the law as ought to be pun
ished. Resolved, 8th, That to carry out the spirit of these
resolutions, we, Union men from every district in
Washington county, earnestly invoke the hearty co
operation of every judicial and executive officer,
elected or appointed, to enforce the laws against dis
order and crime, and we hereby pledge ourselves,
individually and collectively, to sustain them in
such a course.
Resolved, 0th, That to further carry out the spirit
of these resolutions, we most earnestly request the
manufacturers and dealers in ardent spirits to quit
the same, as we are satisfied that it is subversive of
good morals, government and everything that will
tend to make us a prosperous and harmonious peo
ple. Resolved, 10th, That a copy of these resolutions bo
furnished the editors of the Union Flag, Bristol
News, New Era, Knoxville Whig, and Nashville
Press and Times, with a request that they publish the
Taylor Endorses Frazier.
N. G. Taylor writes a letter from Washington to
Dr. Frazier, of Knox, fully endorsing the legisla
tive course of the latter. Well, Taylor has endorsed
a good deal, and certainly more than Frazicr's con
stituents of Knox and Roane will endorse. Nay,
more than Taylor's own constituents will endorse.
Dr. Frazier voted and spoke against the Franchise
Bill, and to favor rebels. He voted against the
new State project, and spoke against it. He voted
for Bosson's amendment which destroyed tho bill
compensating loyal citizens for their losses, and then
voted against the bill as amended by his own. vote.
Beside this, he voted and acted generally in favor of
the rebels, and against the Union party and the in
terest of those who elected him. The voters of
Knox and Roane are denouncing him without re
serve. Although the two counties he so flagrantly
misrepresents polled about 5,000 votes, he can't get
500 in both counties for re-election. He treated with
scorn and conte uipt what he knew to bo tho wishes
of his constituents. i -
The Fenian Collapse.
Thus far the Fenian raid upon Canada has amount
ed to very little. Part of their forces were captured
by the British troops, and a part by tho Federal
forces sent out by the President to disperse the in
vaders of the Canadian soil. The great body of the
Fenians have returned to American soil, and we
suppose the matter will end at this. At all events,
the President has issued a proclamation against the
Fenians, and ordered the arrest of all who violate
our neutrality laws.
Cuabity. It is proposed to open a subscription
book to procure a Congressional Directory and an
original writer for a certain editor who persists in
making Wendel Phillips a member of Congress,
and forgets to credithis " editorials (?)" to the World
and Times. ' ..' '
N. B. The Directory will not cost more than 23
cents, and an original writer, suitable to the grade
of said xlitor's paper, can doubtless be hired very
cheaply. Rally Conservatives, and at the same time
you can join the " Johnson Union Club !"'
Treason in a Popular Government. "From
villiany," says Burke, "no good can arise, but in the
example of its fate." Supporters of the President's
pol icy seem disposed to reverse this maxim. They
appear to think that as soon as villiany is defeat
ed it recovers all the rights of virtue; and, far from
being desirous that its should serve as an example
to incipient rascality, they make it rather a stimu
lus. A crime which has involved the nation in snch
calamities as those which accompanied the Southern
rebellion, cannot be lightly regarded by the people,
without deeply corrupting the people. To soften ita
wickedness is to invite its recurrence; to be its apol
o!t is to rrt''nte la i gpiit. MM, ,

The Southern Temper.
All manner of contradictory statements are made
by partizan papers, secret Government agents, and
letter-writers, touching the temper of the people of
the South. We have looked on at all the doings and
sayings South with as much interest as any other
man, and ws state the four following propositions
as true in every word and letter :
1. The feeling of animosity among the Southern
people, against the Government of the United States,
is general, and daily increasing.
2. This feeling is more universal and intense than
it was immediately after the surrender of Lee ; and
it is increased in violence by the course the Presi
dent has taken.
3. There is a general disposition to proscribe
Southern Unionists and Northern emigrants, and
this feeling increases daily.
4. East Tennessee is the only portion of the eleven
seceded States not guilty of every count in this in
dictment. And here, in the towns, we have banded
together the remnants of a sore-headed, wind-broken
aristocracy, who manifest, in every possible form,
their hatred of the men who conquered, on the field
of battle, the boasted chivalry of the South.

Judge Underwood Beads the People
of Richmond a Good Lesson, and
Compares their City to Sodom.
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury: I am happy to
meet you again, and to know that you are still liv
ing, notwithstanding the assaults that have been
made upon you. Little need be said in addition to
the instructions given at Norfolk. Your last session
has made you historical, and I trust that the efforts
which have been made to intimidate you and to im
pede the course of justice will not make you less
faithful and earnest in the discharge of your public
duties. We ought not to be surprised that the treas
onable and licentious press of this State and city
should wince, and rage, and become furious when
treason and licentiousness are exposed and arraigned
for trial and punishment. Nor should we be sur
prised at the enormity and desperation exhibited
when we remember that this city has long been the
centre and seat of the greatest traffic in human be
ings that has ever disgraced the world a traffic
which has annually employed many hundreds of
moral monsters and many millions ot capital, sub
sidizing the press, pulpit and politics of tho State,
rendering Richmond more infamous among men for
its participation in this great crime than all the cit
ies along the coasts of Senegambia, Upper and Lower
Guinea, Congo, Loan go, Angola or Benguela com
bined. The wonder rather is, that so many traces
of kindness, humanity and Christian civilization
should have survived such debasing and brutalizing
influences ; and let us thank God and take courage
that more fortunate than the devoted cities of an
tiquity, we can count more than ten men who have
stood faithful among the faithless. The complaints
of threatened violence and intimidation which have
been forwarded to me by several of your number,
for your late heroic and patriotic actions, have been
submitted to the highest logal and military authori
ties of the Government and I can assure you of the
earnest sympathy and firm support of all the officers
of the law, not excepting the President, whom the
treasonable now flatter and fawn upon, but whom
they will probably soon curse as heartily as they did
two years ago. But, gentlemen, I am glad to call
your attention to a law of Congress, which puts your
own vindication, as well as that of the country, into
your own hands. In 1831 Congress enacted, as you
will find on passage 488 of the fourth volume of the
Statutes at Large, as follows :
"Sec. 2. And be it further tnarted, That if any
person or persons shall corruptly, or by threats or
force endeavor to influence, intimidate or impede
any juror, witness or officer in any court of the
United States in the discharge of his duty, or should
corruptly or by threats or force obstruct or impede
the due administration of justice therein, every per
son or persons so offending shall be liable to prose
cution therefor by indictment and shall, on convic
tion therefor, be punished by a fine not exceeding
five hundred dollars, or by imprisonment not exceed
ing three months, or both, according to the nature
and aggravation of the offense. Approved March
You will thus have it in your own power to ex
ercise a wholesome restraint upon licentious tongues
j and pens, and upon a press which, as a blind leader
i of the blind, has been and still is one of tho chief
causes of past present and prospective calumny and
misfortune, the murders, duels, assassinations, vio
lent and ungoverned passions, ending in self-conflagration
or self-immolation, unparalleled in any
heathen country ; the poverty, suffering, agony and
degradation which have given this citj-, of almost
unequalled natural capabilities, its bad eminence,
are the legitimate perils of the teachings of iU pub
lic press ; and anything jrou can be able to contrib
ute towards its reformation will, in the highest de
gree, be serviceable to the cause of tho country and
of humanity. But gentlemen, let us act with mod
eration and discrimination, for, though a prostituted
press is one of the greatest calamities, a free and
virtuous press is one of the greatest public blessings
the greatest ornament and support of public vir
tue. After delivering the charge, Juge Underwood
remarked that in the absence of the foreman, Mr.
Harrison would act in that capacity.
Tbe Grand Jury then retired to their room.
Making Treason Odious.
The Washington Chronicle says:
The duty of making " treason odious " wab not
abandoned by everybody when Audrew Johnson
said farewell to it. Tennessee decided it in May by
perfecting a law against allowing traitors to vote
for seven years, and West Virginia disfranchised
them for an indefinite period by an amendment of
her constitution, which last week received over
twelve thousand majority ; and the excellent Gov
ernor Curtin, of Pennsylvania, signed on Monday
last the bill passed by the Legislature of that State
depriving deserters of all right to vote or hold of
fice, according to the terms of the act of Congress
approved March 3, 1865. It is said this will lose
the Pennsylvania Copperheads at least thirty thou
sand reliable voters.
And again :
Full returns of the West Virginia election have
not yet come in, but a majority ranging from eight
to twelve thousand has been figured up for the
amendment to the State Constitution. The text of
the amendment is as follows ""No person who,
since the 1st day of June, 1861, has given or shall
give voluntary aid or assistance to the rebellion
against the United States, shall be a citizen of this
State, or be allowed to vote at any election held
therein, unless he has volunteered into the military
or naval service of the United States, and has been
or shall be honorably discharged therefrom."
All Fools Day Election.
Certain persons in Memphis have been entertain
ing themselves by holding an election for Attorney
General. John Martin, Esq., sends his certificate of
election signed by twelve freeholders to the Gover
nor, and asks for "his commission. Gov. Brownlow
has sometimes provoked his opponents by offenses
of commissions, and so, to avoid the danger of re
peating that offense, he will, in this instance, by the
offense of omission. If anybody ever imagined
that he would pay the least attention to such tom
foolery as the holding of an election before a rigid
registration of voters, he has been badly deceived.
However, if folks will have amusement, let them
have it aad the sham election returns will answer
very well for wart$ paper. Nashville Press and
