The two ConTentlons.
The grandest Convention which ever assembled
on thii continent (ave that of 1776 when independ
ence was proclaimed) was the Convention of the
layal men of the South which assembled in Phila
delphia on the 3d inet The official proceedings of
tbii Convention were published in last weeks paper.
In this issue we publish a lengthy and interesting
synopsis of the same in the form of a letter from
Gov. Brownlow. The grand Address of the Con
vention to the loyal millions of the Republic, the
eloquent and abl speeches of such patriot' as Ham
ilton, Bolts and Durant, are unanswerable argu
ments against the insane and treasonable policy of
Andrew Johnson. As might be expected, the ad
vocates of A. Johnson attempt to parry the deadly
blow of the proceedings of this Convention against
" My Policy " by a resort to vulgar invootivc and
defamation. Conscious of criminality and a pur
pose hostile to " Freedom and Nationality," tbeir
only defense is in slander and vituperation. The
chief stock in trade of the Johnsonites is denuncia
tion cf this Convention, because Fred Douglass, a
colored man, was in Philadelphia' during its session.
He teas not a member of the Cunvcntioit, and took no
part in its proceedings ; but because he was in the
city, and made an able Union speech, the cry is
heard of "nigger convention," "nigger equality'7
and the like. The people of East Tennessee will
not be longer frightened by this silly, rebel talk.
We do not propose to enter into a defense of the
Union party against the charge of - nigger equali
ty." We have no hesitation in declaring that we
would sooner give the negro equal rights before the
law, to being made the slaves of the traitors of the
South, under the lead cf Andrew Johnson.
Our purpose in this article was to draw a parallel
or make a comparison between the loyal convention
of the 3d insL, and the vilo, copperhead conclave of
the 11th of August, which assembled to endorse
Andrew Johnson. The carrion crows who talk pol
itic on our streets, have a great deal to say about
Fred Douglass marching " arm-in-arm " in a Union
procession in Philadelphia with Theodore Tilton, a
- Northern man who was iwt a member of the South
ern Loyalist's Convention. Now, what a spectacle
is presented the loyal men of the nation in the her
maphrodite Johnson concern of the 11th of August,
which the Copperheads of East Tennessee propose
endorsing to-day in this city.
We see General Dick Taylor, of Louisiana, a del
egate to this Convention. A wretch who, in 1861,
aa Colonel of a regiment, ordered the Union flags in
East Tennessee to be taken down before the State
seceded. He didn't march into the convention "arm-in-arm"
with Massachusetts, but here is something
htdiddo: "There were seven Union men in Louis
iana who escaped through Dick Taylor's lines and
enlisted in the 8th Vermont regiment as Federal
soldiers, after which they were captured in battle
by Dick Taylor's command, tried by his court mar
tial, and sentenced to be shot to death. Dick Taylor
having the execution of the tentence, ordered them
first to dig their own graves one sufficient to con
tain four men, tho other to contain three. In these
two holes they stood up and were shot by Dick

Editor vf V Whig:
The Southern Loyal Convention has adjourned
after a harmonious and animated session of five days
and nights. All matters connected with the politics
of the present crjsis were fully and ably discussed.
Great enthusiasm prevailed throughout. Nothing
was concealed, but all points, however delicate, were
freely handled, and the reporters of all the papers,
friendly and unfriendly, were alike provided with
seats and tables. Crowds of spectators were admit
ted and accommodated with seats outside of the bar
of the great Natiooal Hall, and in the galleries.
Copperheads, both in the Hall by day and in the
streets at night, stood entranced before the showing
up of the treachery of Andrew Johnson and his in
There were 300 regularly commissioned delegates
a gallant nd true set of men well posted in all
that related to the past and present of the rebellion.
These did all the voting and debating in Conven
tion, making it what it was proclaimed to be, a Con
vention of Southern Loyalists. True, there were
one thousand Northern delegates, among whom
were many of the first men in America Governors,
Senators, Representatives, ex-Congressmen and Leg
islators. These were only honorary, or outside mem
bers, sent here to cheer and congratulate the South
A committee of thirteou, with absolute unanimi
ty, reported an appeal to the people of tho country,
which was adopted by acclamation. I call attention
to this document as the most powerful bill of indict
ment ever presented to the world against any of
fender. It is an indictment against the President's
policy, which, as a literary production, is written
with a force, conviction and eloquence withal never
excelled by any political document put forth in
America. Its logic is well grounded in facts known
to the whole country, and its accusations cannot be
refuted. It will bo circulated by millions, as one of
the most powerful campaign documents extant, and
its effect upon political affairs will be telling and
The unreconstructed Slates presented a report af
ter the business of the general Convention was
through with, representing their own views and
wants. This was an able report, and declared for
negro suffrage, as essential to their interests in the
rebel States. The border States, including Tenne3
ncssce, did not participate in this action, leaving it
to the unreconstructed States alone. They called
the ayes and nays, and the vote was 64 for and 10
against the report. The Convention, as a Conven
tion, look no part in this vote, but left it to those in
terested. The welcome extended to the delegates by the
city of Philadelphia could not have been excelled
in cordiality, grandeur and enthusiasm. The pro
cession on Monday, the first day, extended for miles.
The streots and side-walks, houses and cross-streets,
were lined and thronged by multiplied thousands.
The stars and stripes floated from every house along
the whole line of march. The cheering and enthu
siasm never ceasod, and the very air rang out w it
shouts. Old and young, male and female, alike en
tered into the loyal spirit of exultation. No pen or
tongue can describe the scene. To have been ap
preciated it must have been seen
On Wednesday evening, after the chief business
of the Convention was through with, the Northern
and Southern delegates met on Broad street, in front
of the Union League House, to greet others. I got
a position on the top of the League House beside
Chief J U6tiee Chase, General Cameron and others,
where I had a full view of the whole affair. If as
grand a scene ever were witnessed in the civilized
world, it never was equaled in the United States.
Tho street is as wide as three or four ordinary streets,
and as far as the eye could reach there was a sea of
up-turued ftccs, a display of banners, torch lights,
transparencies, bands of music, and the shouts and
songs literally rent the air. Old politicians and
good judges of crowds estimated the whole at ONE
HUNDRED THOUSAND. Many estimated tho
crowd higher. All agreed that the Copper-Johnson
Convention of August was a common town meeting
by the side of this. If this Convention were not a
success, the term success has lost its meaning.
I shall not presume to speak of the speeches, as
they were numerous, able and eloquent. No speech
delivered at tho principal stand was listened to with
more profound attention than the speech of General
Burnside. His eulogy upon East Tennessee loyal
ists, his solemn protest against the mad policy of
tho President, and his earnest appeal to the Presi -dent
to stand by Congress, elicited long and loud
Two other speeches were delivered in the National
Hall after the Convention had adjourned, of re
markable character. Miss Anna E. Dickinson, a
small young woman of (Quaker origin, of respecta
bility, and of superior talents. With a fine but pen-
j ctrating voice, perfect in the arts of oratory, she
brought cheers from hundreds, and produoed a pro
found impression. I can say of a truth, she is no
The other speech was by Fred Douglas, a man of
color. I had never seen or heard him before, and
remained in the Hall alter the adjournment to hear
him. He did not meet my expectations as an orator,
but he is a sensible and well informed man, and will
compare favorably with half the white men in the
country iii point of talents. He was one of the New
York Northern delegates, and was not in the South

" Let fraad aud strung and banenejs timer,

The falon Truth hangs poised for ever,
And marks them with his xtnyful ey."
In a few weeks a great mass meeting of the loyal
people of East Tennessee will be held in this city to
ratify the proceedings of the Loyal Convention
which assembled in Philadelphia on the 3d inst.
Arrangements have not been perfected so as to
enable us to state the dsy of the meeting in this
number. This will be published soon. Many of
the most distinguished and eloquent, orators in the
country will be here.. From abroad such noble pa
triots and statesmen as Bolts, of Virginia; Hamil
ton, of Texas; Speed, of Kentucky; and Durant,
of Louisiana, are expected. From .our own State
such orators as Stokes, Maynard, Arnell and Fow

come from the valleys and mountains, thousands of
discharged Union soldiers and loyal citizens from
many counties will be here, and the welkin be made
to ring with the plaudits of a patriotic Congress and

' To hei.it) that the spirit o liberty flashes
Resistance is idle aud numbers a dream :
They burst from control, as the Mountain stream rushes
From its fetters cf ice in the warmth of the beam.
A Question Desening an Answer.
Under the above heading a lengthy letter from
East Tennessee is published tn the Nashville Union
and American, from which ) we extract the fol
lowing: ' - - ' ;v
Is it so ? Frequently, during the last five years
I have, at intervals, heard the declaration made that
durinsr the summer of 1861 negotiations were con
ducted by certain persons, advocates of Southern in
dependence, and the editor of Brownlow's Knox
ville Whig, to secure the influence of that paper for
the Southern cause that the schedule was very
nearly completed, and was to have gone into opera
operation during the autumn of that year that its
consummation was only prevented through the in
fluence of two or three prominent Unionists of
Knox county, (now bitterly denounced by Brown
low,) and by the constant and impolitic taunts of
the Knoxville Register, intended, as verjr many be
lieved, to prevent Brownlow from becoming an ally,
lest his paper should becomes the leading organ of
the party in East Tennessee.
Professing no knowledge of the facts in the case,
except as they were learned from the lips of that
very unreliable jade, public rumor, I merely ask for
information, and for the gratification of a natural,
if not a commendable curisoity of the public
mind. Was such an arrangement ever canvassed ?
Did the reverend editor ever, for any length of
time, entertain such a proposition 7 V hat preven
ted the ratification to a treaty between the high
For the "information" of the ex-organ of Gov
lsham G. Harris, we will state that the " mares-
nest' discovered by that "unreliable jadcf public
rumor" is a Johnson humbug and lie. Let the cor
respondent give other authority for this charge than
that "very unreliable jade, public rumor" or for
ever after hold his peace. We pronounce the charge
or "rumor," in its length and breadth, an infamous
and unfounded lie. To the man who would endors e
it be he " Highland or Lowland, Prince or IV- we
say Lord Angus thou hast lied."
" The reverend editor" never " for any length of
time entertained a proposition" to cease his support
of the Union cause. Many inducements wero held
out to him to do so. Gen. James P. Brownlow was
tendered a commission in the rebel army, and the
editor of this paper was proffered positions on the
staff of Gen. Leonidas Polk and Gen. Zollicoffer.
The " reverend editor" could have easily made a
nice thing, pecuniarily or otherwise, by supporting
the rebellion, and surrendering his convictions of
right to pcrs onal interests and aggrandizement.
THE SECOND BIG GUN FIRED BY MAIS L.
With unbounded joy we announced in our last
paper the glorious victory in Vermont, in which the
traitor, Andrew Johnson, was beaten by a larger
majority than were tho "Sens of Liberty"' (so-callod)
and other Northern traitors who opposed the'war
and murdered Union soldiers. In this issue, we
have the satisfaction of announcing tho glorious
victory in Maine, where the Johnson party has been
beaten thirtv-ei.;ht thousand, being a gain on
the last election of eight or teu thousand. All the
members elected to Congress arc Radicals, and every
member of tho State Senate and all but two mem
bers of the House of Representatives.
To this great triumph, over the traitor Andrew
Johnson, is added tho glorious achievment in the
passage of the Constitutional Amendment by the
New Jersey Legislature.
Threats or War Mob Violence.
" From a private letter from East Tennessee, we
learn that the Radicals of that section are endeav
oring to deter the people from attending the great
Ratification Meeting at Knoxville. on the l?th inat.,
by giving out that it is the intention of Governor
Brownlow to disperse it by force."
This statement is made the occasion ol a threat of
War by the Nashville Union and American from
which it is copied.
We suppose our Nashville coteniporary received
the letter spoken of, for there are men ia East Ten
nessee who are capable of writing such a letter or
committing any crime from tho robbing of n hen
roost to assassination. There is not in this city a
"upporter of President Johnson, of any respectabil
ity or pride of character, who will publicly say he 1 League Hous0) a buiiding on Broad gtreet which cost
the League two hundred thocsaxd dollars.
As an edifice it is an omameat to Phi ladelphia, and
an honor to the Union party of the most loyal city
in the United States. There is not such a political
club house in the world, adorned with such paint
ings and furniture. The damage is about forty
thousand, fully insured, and will soon be repaired.
Thousands of members belong to it, and millions of
wealth is represented in its members. They form
a party organization that eun't be smoked out'm this
In Pennsylvania the Radicals will gain three
Congressmen, and carry the Governor by thousands.

W. G. Brownlow.
believes there was any foundation for the report or
charge referred to.
Governor Brownlow and many prominent men of
the Radical party in East Tennessee have publicly
declared that they would -disperse by force" a
Convention to vccrthroic the State Government.
The convocation of such an Assembly would bo
treasonable and as revolutionary as the war waged
for the disruption of the Union.
Tho majority of the Johnson papers iu Tennes
see, (among which is the Union and American)
have advised the calling of this revolutionary Con
vention. LlT TIIEM CALL IT IK T11EY DARK.
Whenever they do so it will be dispersed at the
point of the bayonet, or the loyal militia of tho
State will perish in the attempt.
No man in East Tennessee has expressed a pur
pose or desire to "disperse by force" or otherwise the
"great Ratification meeting at Knoxville, on the
10th inst" or any other political, partizan mass
meeting. Tho business of dispersing, by riots and
mob-violence, law-abiding assemblies belong-; to the
Johnson party, a la mode New Orleans.
In conclusion, we repeat whenever a revolution
ary body assembles (as it seems probable there willl
to overthrow the State Govornmcnt aud disregard
the " Franchise Law," it trill be "dispersed by force."
Mr. Union and American, "put thin in your pipe
and smoke it."
The loyal men of the mountains of East Tennes
see kct been sounded on this subject and are ready
for the work.
A Georgia Assassin.
A Georgian writes an anonymous aud abusive
letter from Atlanta to Governor Brownlow, in
which he informs him he would be shot if he dared
come to that place. We have no doubt the writer
is correct ia what he Bays. This is the argument of
the friends of Johnson in the South as manifested at
Memphis and New Orleans. Nearly every paper
in Georgia, and throughout the South has exulted
in fiendish language at the massacre in New Orleans
and the forcible disruption of peaceable assembly
of law-abiding men.
The desire of Governor Brownlow, and those of
like opinions, is to see this government restored on
such terms as will guarantee protection to the person
and the freedom of speech of every citizen where
the American flag is unfurled. Unless we have
uch a restoration of the Union, the precious blood
of five hundred thousand heroes has been shed in
vain. There can be no republicanism and freedom
, in the South until such a ute of affairs is establish
ed. For atruggling for this consummation, Gover
nor Brownlow and all Radicals are denounced as
Public Speaking in union county.
On Monday, 31st of this month, Hon. J. A.
Doughty, of Anderson county, and the Editor of
this paper, will address the people ia Maynardsville.
CoL Doughty has just returned from an extensive
tour through the North, v hither he went as a dele
gate to the Great Union Convention at Philadel
phia. Come one, come all, and bear the truth from an
eye wiIdom of the proceedings of this great Con
vention and the sentiment of the loyal North.
Jndge Honk Threatens to Disperse the
Knoxville Convention with the Bay
onet. Under the flaming caption above, in big letters
we find the following in a letter from this city, of
the "d inst., published in the Memphis Argus :
Judge Uouk, in a speech at Crippen's Springs re
cently, boasted that if a Conservative convention
dared to assemble in Knoxville, as he alleged they
intenaea to ao, that he would throw a regiment into
tho city in less than twenty-four hours and disperse
the assemblage. This blatant threat shows the spirit
oi violence ana recklessness that pervades the Radi
cal camp. Their determination is to control or de
Wc pronounce the above statement a stupendous
LIE. The writer doubtless knew it to be a lie when
he penned it, for he had been in this city several
weeks. J udge Houk never, at any time, to any per
son, threatened to disperse or aid directly or indi
rectly in dispersing a convention or mass meeting
ofj.-itizens of any party. Judge Houk did say, and
now says, that if a convention assembles in Nash
ville for the purpose of overthrowing the State gov
ernment, and the Governor calls for the militia to
suppress such revolutionary and traitorous proceed
ings, he will respond to the call of the Governor and
throw a regiment into Knoxville in forty-eight
hours. The Memphis Argus has given circulation
to an infamous falsehood, and it is too infamous a
sheet ever to make the correction.
Several weeks since the Commercial of this city
charged Judge Houk with inciting or attempting to
incite a mob at Clinton. The Judge disproved the
charge by the Sheriff of the county, who was refer
red to by the Commercial as a witness to the truth
of the allegation. Also by the certificates of the
Attorney General and many citizens of both par
ties. The Commercial has never noticed the evi
dence refuting its infamous slander of a brave man
and good officer. The slander was published all
over the State, and the only Johnson paper which
we have seen which had the fairness to give Houk'a
defence was the Nashville Dispatch.
Judge Houk is now engaged, and has been for
weeks, in an able and fearless canvass against the
Johnson party. " This accounts for the milk in the
cocoa cut," This is the reason he is so villainously
slsnderel. On the stump be has routed the John
son orators "horse, foot and dragoons," and they feel
it necessary to defame him in more unscrupulous
journals than ever cursed a people.
Knox County Swindlers.
In our last paper we referred to some of the men
who support and uphold tho degraded puppy of the
Commercial of this city. From tho columns of this
dirty Johnson paper it is evident we made a centre
shot among a certain class of Johnson carrion-crows.
Under the brief editorial referred to they writhe and
wriggle and squirm as does a worm when cut in
twain. From our editorial the following paragraph
is copied into and commented on by tho Commer
" Yes ! concealed slanderers who declare Governor
Brownlow avaricious because he has sued leading
traitors for false imprisonment. Men who have
Bworn to accounts asrainst the Government for
twice or thrice the amount of damage done their
property by the Federal army, and twice and thrice
the Quartermaster and Commissary stores taken
irom them tor the use ol the army.
Commenting on this, the Commercial says, these
are "grave charges against citizens of Knoxville
and Knox county."' Exactly so. This is one truth
you have uttered. They are grave charges which
papers on file in Washington and other evidence
will verify. Further this little paper says :
This charge applies to every man here who has
done business with the Government.
A more shameless falsehood was never uttered by
"the Little Iron Man,'' or any other hired scoun
drel. It is a " lie manufactured out of whole cloth.-'
A statement may be fale and yet plausible, and
have some force or point or sense in it. This does
not have this merit. There are certain concealed
slanderers in Knox county who pat a thieving edi
tor on the back and applaud him for publishing,
among other things, that Gov. Brownlow has been
governed by selfish, pecuniary considerations in op
posing secession. The men who do this (referred to
in our article) have made out accounts against the
government for twice or thrice the amount of Com
missary and Quartermaster stores taken from them,
and twice or thrice the damage done their property
by tho Federal army. The "charge" we made
" applies" not to every man here in tho language
of this rebel paper) who has done business with the
Government," but to thoce, and thoe only, who ap
plaud scoundrels in slandering Gov. Brownlow, aud
charge him with having been governed by selfish,
pecuniary considerations, while thoy have attempted
to steal from and swindle the government. Men
who denounce Gov. Brownlow for bringing suit
against bioody-handed rebel murderers, while they
have endeavored to thrust their hands into the Na
tional Treasury and ileal the people's money.
This Johnson paper demands that wo give the
names of the persons referred to. In reply wo will
say that we will do this at such lime as our judg
ment dictates. And when we do our statement shall
be verified by indisputable evidence.
Who are Entitled to Vote.
We direct special attention to the communication
in this paper from Charles Morrow, Commissioner
for the registration of voters of this county. The
BLACK-HEARTED SCOUNDRELS and LIARS to whom
Esquire Morrow refors, have been industriously cir
culating the report that men who have always been
loyal, even some who served in the Federal army,
are disfranchised, because at some time, under com
pulsion and dread of arrest, imprisonment or hang
ing, they acknowledged the Southern Confederacy
That such is the case is a lie, and these Johnson
scoundrels know it to be such when they tell it.
No man is excluded from the ballot-box who has not,
at some period during the tear, been a rebel at heart,
and voluntarily aided the rebellion, while many of the
latter class arc alloictd to vote. Let every Union
man in the county call on Charles Morrow and he
will get a voting certificate. We guarantee this,
Morrow says so in his " Card," and he is a man of
his word. The purpose of these vile copperheads
circulating theso reports is to keep Union men from
tho polls. Men so base, if necessary to accomplish
their purposes, would rob a hen roost or murder a
man for his pocket-book.
Delegates to visit the grave of tho martyred
President Lincoln were appointed by the Loyal
Convention in Philadelphia, and are now journey
ing to that consecrated spot at Chicago.
At every city and town they are receiving grand
ovations ; the multiplied thousands of discharged
Federal soldiers and loyal citizens rising up to do
them honor, and testify their admiration of the sac
rifices of tho loyal millions whom they represent.
While Andrew Johnson, in hi3 demagogical tour,
has been treated by the loyal people with jeers and
contempt, these loyal men travel with the tread of
conquerors, everywhere receiving the plaudits of the
patriotic North. Theso delegates, traveling in the
wake of tho President, will mako speeches where he
The committee includes the names of Hon. T. J.
Durant, Rev. Dr. Newman and Judge Goodloc, of
Louisiana; Gov. Brownlow, Horace Maynard and
Messrs. Arnell and Stokes, of Tennessee; Judge
Speed and Dr. Breckinridge, of Kentucky; Gov.
Hamilton, of Texas ; Hon. John Minor Bote, Judge
Underwood and Rev. Mr. Hunnicutt, of Virginia ;
Gov. Fletcher, of Missouri ; Messrs. Cresswell and
Thomas, of Maryland, and others.
' Many of these gentlemen are able speakers, and
will, by their intimate acquaintance with the condi
tion of affairs in the South, be able to throw much
light on the practical workings of Ahdrew John
son's policy. The speeches of these Southern Union
ists are producing a profound impression throughout
the North, and inducing a new and more rigid scru
tiny into tho Johnson-Rebel plan of reconstruction.
The Memphis Avalanche says it is carefully pro
paring for publication a list of all business men in
that city, merchants, mechanics and others who op
pose the policy of Andrew Johnson. It proposes
to publish this list with a view to break these private
citizens down, prevent their getting custom, and
drive them from Memphis, notwithstanding they
are not politicians and take no public part in poli
tics. This is the spirit of the majority f the men
who support Andrew Johnson. That it should be
manifested in Memphis is not surprising. It is, we
think, rather early to see such a prescriptive spirit
displayed in Knoxrillc aud loyal .Last Tennessee.
Recently a citizen of this county declared his un
willingness to rent a private dwelling to an excel
lent gentleman solely because he was a Radical.
The house he desired to rent, and he knew the party
wishing it to be perfectly good for the payment of
the rent, beside being a man of standin g and hon
orable in the private relations of life.
His only cause for reluctance in renting was the
radicalism of the gentleman in opposing, as a pri
vate citizen, " My Policy." Could we do so without
violating private confidence, we would gladly pub
lish the name of this proscriptive, black-hearted
traitor, and ventilate his character in such manner
as would cause him to have much greater hatred for
radicals than he now has. We have made a shoe
which fits a certain man. Let him publicly declare
the truth, that we may be no longer embarrassed in
keeping sacred what was told us confidentially.
When he does, we will show him whether loyal men
are prepared just now to be bullied and driven from

The dirty little rebel paper of this city, edited by
The Merchant Prince," (who stole some thirty-five
thousand dollars,) publishes in its issue of the 15th
an article from the Nashville Gazette, denouncing
Gov. Brownlow in bitter and vulgar terms. Our
reply to this is that the editor of this Nashville pa
per, Edwin Paschal, is an old vagabond who has
been frequently put in prison at Nashville for vio
lating the laws and disregarding common decency.
On one occasion he was put in jail for disloyalty.
By order of Major General Thomas he was released
on the ground that he was irresponsible for anything
he did, " too poor to pay a fine, and too old to lie in
jail," as General Thomas expressed it. This Nash
ville Gazette is another paper from which it is ap
propriate that the " Ohio Omnibus Driver " should
make selections. The editors of it and the Commer
cial are congenial spirits to be employed by broken
down East Tennessee aristocrats who have endeav
ored, in more ways than one, to steal from the government.

his unswerving patriotism and hostility to treason.

running over with abolitionism, but I denied it for
policy's sake. I am proud to-day that I have been
classed among the persecuted set, and deem it the
highest compliment to be denounced as sach. And
I tell you, gentlemen, that in a short time all this
complaint about negro equality will be done away
with. Some months since, and it was said that the
negro would not be suffered to testify in your courts
that his oath would not be granted him. But how
stand matters to-day ? He is not only permitted to
testify in your courts with impunity, but there is
every evidence that he will be on a social equality
with the white man in your State, l'es, gentlemen,
in a short time he will marry and intermarry inyour
families. It is a little objectionable to-day, but you
will soon get over this, and the persecuted negro
will be welcomed to your parlors. This will be the
result of the political and social changes of the next
By Mr. Maynard we are authorized to pronounce
the above false. He made no such speech, and the
copperhead who reported he did lied, and lied
knowingly. The Johnson papers are as unscrupu
lous and unreliable as were the rebel organs of 1861,
which daily published that one Southern man could
whip ten Yankees. By falsehood and misrepresen
tation they seek to break down tho Union party
and its distinguished advocates.

Tho removal of the bodies of all Union Soldiers
buried in the States of Kentucky, Tennessee, Geor

National Cemeteries at Memphis, Pittsburg Land
ing, Fort Donelson, Nashville and Columbia, Tenn.,
Marietta and Macon, Ga., Montgomery and Mobile,
Ala., Natchez, Vicksburg and Corinth, Miss., dur
ing the ensuing full and winter, will afford an op
portunity for friends and relatives and surviving

trcd up. Friends desirous of being present at any

of Officers engaged in supereintending the removals
to the several Cemeteries.
Catalogues of the dead already removed to tho

" The Government, in assuming to perform a
work, which belongs as a special right only to the
kindred and friends of the deceased, demands of its
Agents to discharge the duty with tho delicacy and
tenderness of near and dear friends.
" It is strictly enjoined upon all to pay the most
scrupulous attention to tho discovery and pres
ervation of all marks of identity, and in the trans
fer of the bodies to their new and final resting
place, to make such records that the officer in charge
of re-interment will have no excuse for mistakes or
'Any failure or neglect to do this, by any
Officer or Employee, will be considered an offence
of the most serious character.
" In cases whero tho dead are collected from bat
tlefields, or other places where they have been bur
ied by their comrades in Regimental groups, they
are to be transfered and buried together in the new
Cemeteries, and in all cases, as far as possible, the
the dead of the same Regiments are to oc buried in
groups in such manner as to admit of Monumental
or other ornamentation by surviving comrades, or
the States in whose service they were enlisted.
' When friends or relatives are present at the dis
interment, every facility should be afforded them of
identifying tho remains, but all reinterments at the
Cemetery are to be regulated and made under the
orders and by the direction of the officer specially
" It is expected that all officers and men engaged
in this delicate and responsible work, will take such
personal interest in its faithful execution, and exer
cise sucn diligence and care in preserving a clear

friend or relative of the dead may have anv lust
cause of complaint."'

'The Union as it was" Andy John
son as He was.
In the Johnson Convention which meets here to
day and to-morrow a great deal will bo said by
speakers of "tho Union as it was." This is the
stereotyped song of a Johnsonite, as it was during
the war of tho opponents of the war and supporters
of McClellan and Jeff. Davis.
The reader will see Andy Johnson as he was by
perusing tho following declaration from his speech
in tho United States Senato of March 2d, 161 :
" Were I President of the United States. I would
do as Thomas Jefferson did, in 1806, with Aaron
Burr, who was charged wih treason. I would have
them arrested and tried for treason, and if convicted,
by the eternal God, they should suffer the nenaltv of
the law at tho hands of tho executioner. Sir, trea
son must be punished. Its enormity, aud the ex-
lent and depth of the otlense must be made known."
of the "Situation" In a
At Reading, Pennsylvania, the other day, an im
mense assemblage of d ischarged Union soldiers and
citizens adopted the following resolution. In a few
words it expresses th9 'Intent and purpose of .East
Tennessee's disgrace,' Andrew Johnson.
Resohed, That the true intent and purpose of the
policy laid down by Andrew Johnson, the man
made President by J. Wilkes Booth, is to resurrect
from oblivion and disgrace the Democratic party,
which, for its treasonable course during the war, was
consigned to the tomb of everlasting infamy and
shame; we believe that the success of said policy
would turn oacK tne wheels of progress a generation

A political struggle, rarely surpa-sed in importauco or in
tensity, has been precipitated on the country by the treachery
of Andrew Johnson and some of his official or personal adhe
rents to the great and patriotic party ty which they were in
trusted with power.
The aim of this treachery is to put tiie steadfast loyalists of
the South under the feet of the " whipped but not subdued"'
Rebels, and to enable th" latter to glut their vengeance on the
former, whom they hate aud curse as responsible for the most
unexpected overthrow of their darling " Confederacy."'
The recent wholesale ma-sacres at Memphis and New Or
leans were but con-picuoU3 manifestations of the spirit now
rampant iu th South, whereof the pro-Rebel triumph in
Kentucky is a more recent example. The soldiers of Lee,
Beauregard, Johastou and Hood are the now the dominant
power from the Potomac to the Iiio Grande ; they elect each
other to office in preference even to stay-at-home Rebels ; they
have supplanted nearly all others as policemen of Southern
cities ; they are organized and officered as State militia ; and
they ruthlessly crush every dcinonstalion of loyal Whites or
loyal Blacks ia asertion of the Et'U-VL BIGHTS of AMER
ICAN FREEMEN. The school-houses of the Blacks are
burned and their White teachers subjected to violence aud out
rage by unchanged Rebels, who relieve the work of murder
and arson by cheers for AnJy Johnson and execrations of
The purpose ol" forcing representatives of the Rebel States
into Congress, in defiance of the loyal oath, by Presidential
fiat and Slilitary power, is openly avowed, with threats that
those who resist it shall be treated as rebels, and a civil war

It has thus become imperative that those who stand for
LIBERTY and LOYALTY for the right of the UNION to
