Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 26, 1866.
William B. Smith. The gentleman whoe
uame rper mbTe " an old citixe11 of Knoxville,
and mas one of the Marshals at the meeting of the
Johnson party in thU city on the 19th .net. From
V arious parties we learn that the report is extensively
circulated, among loyal men in the country, that
Mr. Smith was Marshal on the occasion of the bang
ing of Haun and other loyal men in this city during
the reign of the rebels.
In justice to Mr. S., we say there is not one word
of truth in the rr-norl. The lov&l men ui
Lre- were executed by the military authorities. Mr.
S. was never connected with the rebel army, and we
iay he never officiated or was connected with the
executions referred to, or any ether executions. We
were here at the time, and tiefc from personal
knowledge. We will say in addition, that few men
( if any) in East Tennessee, identified with the rebel
Johnson party, are less obnoxious to Union men
than Mr. Smith. This is because use conduct, au-
4th of September a rebel raid from 2Corth Carolina
made a descent unoa the Johnson county jail, in
I "which were three prisoners, Alex. Wilson, who waa
I convicted at the July term of the Circuit Court for
the murder of Jack Poter, in J866, Joshua Jones,
for horse stealing, and Andrew Fritts, for sheep
i stealing. The jaQ not being close w any aoutw, wey,
I by slrategem, secured T. J. Crosswhite, the jailor,
! and by threats forced him to deliver the keys of the
jail, and released the prisoners uu uj w -cane
towards Jsorth Carolina. Wilson had been in
the rcbol army and killed a Mr. Poter, who was a
Union man. And when he gets into North Caro
lina, and under the security of " My Policy," per
haps will never be brought to justice. ' From all ap-
urdered . Pr,lDe08 there were fcut thirty of Ibe ' My Pol
Prisoners ebeak Jul in
Jonesboro' Flag says .
On Saturday nicht last a number of the prisoners
of our jail again effected an opening in the walls of
their ceil and made their escape. 1 bey managed to
get an anger into their apartments, and thus secured
egress to the outside world, when they retreated in
'good order," it is presumed. Owing to this fact,
we learn, Mr. Boyd, the jailor, has been removed by
rinc and bince the war, has boon different from that the Sheriff, and Mr. Pruett put in his stead.

bi'FKtME Cocbt or Tennessee. After a session
of ten days this Court adjourned on Friday last, to
meet again on the 4th Monday in October. Many
usees were deposed of. Among them that of Gal
Lraith and others, involving the question of confis
cation. The Court decided that under confiscation
law a conveyance of property by a rebel was void,
so fur as tho Government was concerned, but valid
as to individuals.
The Attorney General entered a nMe prosequi in
the celebrated case of Dewitt C. Williams of Grain
ger county. Some months since, as wo published,
Williams was sentenced by the Circuit Court to the
Penitentiary for "treason against the State," in aid
ing the rebellion. The cause was dismissed on the
ground that tho record showed the offense to be
against the United States and not the State of Ten
nessee. This does not decide that treason against
the United Slates is not treason against the govern
ment of Tennessee. It only decides that in this
cause the cog was not made out.
The Court adjourned because of the serious illness
of one of the members, Judge Uawkins. When
it meets in October, it will be in session four or five

Cuoli-ka. As the question is settled beyond dis
pute, that we are to be visted by that most to be
feared epidemic, cholera, it behooves us all to use
every precaution in our power to stay its progress,
and there can be no more certain preventative than
Eoback's Scandinavian Kcmedies, keep the bowels
open with the Pills, and invigorate the system by
the free use of Koback's Stomoch bitters, or, if the
blood is thin, use the Purifier. No family should be

The Bell House. In noticing the improve
, rucnU made in our city during the past several
mouth?, the hotel known as the Bell House is worthy
f mention. Several times recently we have had
occasion to partake of the viaDds of tho " Bell," and
we say what we havo heard many say who have
done likewise) they are as palatablo as we desire,
and as various as the market affords. The proprie
tor, Geo. W. Mayo, and his assistant, Billy Eirk,
are unremitting in efforts to accommodate guests.
To the Masonic Fraternity. In this paper
we publish an advertisement from which it will be
soen that the Annual Meeting of the Grand Lodge

cause of the prevalence of cholera in Jfa-bville.
Tearing Down the Union Flag. It is said
there is a woman residing in Jonesborough, who so
far forgot herself, or who belittled her class so much,
as to tear down a Union flag, placed over the door
of the Court House in this city. It was once said
by a distinguished Union General : " Whoever hauls
down the Union flag, shoot him on the spot !" We
wonder what he would have advised in regard to a
she rebel guilty of the same offence? Shame on
such an act. Jonesboro' Flag.
Delegates to the Loyal Soldiers and
Sailors Convention. The same delegates who
were appointed in the first Congressional District to
attend the late glorious Convention at Philadelphia,
are appointed to attend the Soldiers and Sailors
Convention at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, on the 25th

tanooga -district, who are now North, and who at
tended the Convention of the 3d inst., will be in
Pittsburg. In this loyal city, where Andrew John
sou received the goers and scoffs of everybody, these
loyal soldiers will have a grand reception.
Gin, as a Remedial Agent. Gin, as a reme
dial agent, has been in favor with the profession for
a very loag period, but owing to the difficulty of
obtaining a pure article, it has fallan into disuse in
many sections of the country, much to the regret of
medical men, who consider it almost a specific in
very many diseases. For all cases of GraceL, pure
Gin, if administered under professional guidance
will certainly work a cure; and if taken as a pre
ventive, acting, as it does, on the sensitive mem
branes, it cleanses the parts so as to remove all pos
sible sediment. Administered in the same way, it
will prevent the formation of Calculi, and do away
with those terrible operations, therefore, 60 necessa
ry for their permanent removal. Gin is of incal
culable benefit to females in those diseases so pecu
liar to the sex, and from its tonic, as well as its
anodyne properties, it is frequently superior to iron,
bark, or even the electrical remedies. In cases of
a positive tendency to Phthisis, or Consumption,
Gin, in proper quantities, by supplying or filling up
the constant dying out of the natural fire of the
system will often entirely ward off that awful dis
ease, which carries off one-eighth of the population
of the United States annually. Pure Gin has this
peculiar advantage over other diffusible stimuli,
that it exhilarates without creating any thirst of an
unhealthy character, it soothes while it also excites,
and is a powerful nervine as well as an active tonic.

We have witnessed in one department of the
Government every effort, as it were, to prevent the
restoring of peace and harmony in the Union. We
have leen, hanging upon the verge of the Govern
ment, as it were, a body called, or which assumed to
be, the Congress of the United States, but in fact a
Congress of only part af the States." President
Johnson's Reply to the National Union Csmmiitee.
The unrelieved atrocity of this sentiment, when
uttered by a President of the United States, cannot
be paralleled in the calendar of official criminal ut
terances. It implies and contains such probabilities
of executive usurpation by means of the military of
the United States, such inferences of public commo
tion and civil strife, that the mind sickens with hor
ror at the contemplation of the scenes that would
ensue should the President endeavor to force a co
incidence between bis ideas and the "logic of
events." It is a denial of the legality of the exist
ence of Congress a body which, with no more claim
to rightful authority than it now has, carried the
country through a four years' war of unprecedented
magnitude, suppressed a rebellion of gigantic pro
portions, and preserved the imperriled Government
from the machinations and attacks of those at pres
ent denouncing the constitutional being of Congress.
The Representatives and Senators from the loyal
States were sufficiently a Congress eleven rebel
lious States to the contrary notwithstanding to pass
all necessary legal enactments for raising and equip
ping some two millions of soldiers during the war,
fitting out and maintaining a navy second to none
in the world, and to overran and conquer the South
ern people who have more reason to complain of
its power than of its right to exercise the same.
Since the war, the "so-called " Congress has legis
lated for the whole country as though a part of it
had never chosen to absent itself from the national
councils, and this, too, with the constant approval,
until within a few months, of the accidental occu
pant of the Presidential chair. To what body but
the present Congress has President Johnson sent in
his messages ? Has he not attempted to influence
its members to admit the oontnern rebels to seals I
If Congress has no legal power to act, how can this
bo done, and of what avail would be their admis
sion ? Southern rebels and .Northern Copperheads
are making a great noise about a small grievance, if
Congress, after all, is without legal or constitutional
warrant to perform the functions guaranteed to it
in the fundamental law of the land.

Confederate Democratic papers, especially those
emanating from south of Mason and Dixon's line,
expend much sympathy over the sufferings of
President Davis. His official bill of fair shows
that he suffers on Sundays on veal cutlets, poached
eggs, wheat and corn bread, butler, sugar, milk and
conee, and at noon ot tne same day he has an at- j
tack of broiled chicken, stewed oysters, potatoes, I
onions, bread, butter, coffee, &c, and on Monday j
morning, the "suffering"' comes on in the shape of ;
mutton chops, beef steak, panned oysters, &c, &j. j

The Equalization or Bounties.
The following is the bill to equalize the bounties
of the soldiers and sailors who served in the late
war, as it finally passed both Houses of Congress :
SECTION 1. Be it enacted, etc., That to each and
every soldier who enlisted in the army of the United
States after the 19th of April, 1861, for a period of
not less than three years, and having served his
term of enlibtment and has been honorably discharg
ed, and who has received, or is entitled to receive
from the Unitud States, under existing laws, a boun
ty of one hundred dollars, and no more; and any
such soldier, enlisted for not less than three years,
who has been honorably discharged on account of
wounds received in the line of duty, and the widow,
minor children or parents, in the order named, of
any such seldier who died in the service of the
United States, or of disease or wounds contracted
while in the service, and in the line of duty, shall
be paid the additional bounty of one hundred dol
lars, hereby authorized.
Sec. 2. that to each and every soldier who en
listed into the army of the United States, after the
10th of April, 1861, during the rebellion for a peri
od of not less than two years, and who is not inclu
ded in the foregoing section, and has been honora
bly discharged therefrom, after serving two years,
and who has received, or is entitled to receive, from
the United States, existing laws, a bounty of $50,
and no more ; and any soldier entered for less than
two years, who has been honorably discharged on
account of wounds received in the line of duty, and
the widow, minor children or parents, in the order
named of any such soldier, who died in the service
of the United States, or of disease or wounds con
tracted while in the service of the United States,
and in the line of duty, shall be paid the additional
bounty of $50 hereby authorized ; provided that
any soldier who has bartered, sold, assigned, trans
ferred, loaned, exchanged or given away his final
discharge papers, or any interest in the bounty pro
vided by this or any other act of Congress, shall
not be entitled to receive any additional bounty
whatever; and when application is made by any
soldier for said bouniy, he shall be required, under
the pains and penalties of perjury, to make oath or
affirmation of his identity, and that ho has not so
bartered, sold, assigned, transferred, exchanged,
loaned or given away, either his discharge papers,
or any interest in any bounty aforesaid, and no
claim for such bounty shall bo entertained by the
Paymaster General, or other accounting or disburs
ing officer, except upon receipt of the claimant's
discharge papers, accompanied by the statement
under oath, as by this section provided.
A political struggle, rarely surpassed iu importauco or in
tensity, hai been precipitated on the country by the treachery
of Andrew Johnson and eomeof his official or personal adhe
rents to the groat and patriotic party by which they were in
t rusted with power.
Tho aim of this treachery in to put the steadfast loyalists of
the South uuder the feet of the " whipped but not subdued''
Rebels, and to enable the latter to glut their vengeance on the
former, whom they bate and cure as responsible for the most
unexpected overthrow of their darling " Confederacy."
The recent wholesale massacres at Memphis and w Or
leans were but conspicuous manifestations of the spirit now
rampant in tho South, whereof the pro-licbol triumph iu
Kentucky is a more recent example. Tho soldiers of Lee,
Boauregard, Johnston and Hood arc the now the dominant
power from the Potomac to the Rio Grande ; they elect each
other to office iu preference even to stay-at-home Rebels ; they
have supplanted nearly all others as policemen of Southern
cities ; they arc orgauiied acd officered as Statu militia ; and
they ruthlessly crush every dumonstation of loyal Whites or
loyal Blacks in assertion of the EQTJAL BIGHTS of AMER
ICAN' FREEMEN. The school-houses of the Blacks are
burned and their White teachers subjected to violence and out
rage by unchanged Rebels, who relieve the work of murder
and arson by cheers for Audy Johnson and execrations of
The purpose of forcing representatives of the Rebel states
into Congress, in defiance of the loyal oath, by Presidential
fiat and Military power, is openly avow sf. with threats that
those who resist it shall be treated as rebels, and a civil war
thus kindled throughout the North and West.
It has thus become imperative that those who stand for
LIBERTY and LOYALTY for the right of the UNION to
exist and of MAN to be FREE should organize and work to
strengthen the hands of CONGRESS for the inevitable contest
We must convince the SOUTH and the C'Ori'ERUEADS
that revolutions go not backward that Emancipation is an
unchangeable fact that the glorious CIVIL RIGHTS ACT
n never be repealed that the rights of tho humblest
AMERICAN are henceforth guaranteed and shielded , by the
FEDERAL CONSTITUTION and must be maintained against
all gainsayers that the days whereiu BLACKS had no rights
which WHITES were bound to rapect, have passed away

in WEST VIRGINIA, and in MISSOURI beside. We must
hold these in our ensuing elections, and add to them MARY

From cholera tlw mortality of Memphis last wee k
was greater thau that of Cincinnati. The number
of deaths was liV.
CucLtRA is Js AfcUVitLE. From the Nashville
Dupalch we learn that the deaths in Nashville last
week were as follows . Monday M, Tuesday 56,
Wednesday 43, Thursday 23, making a total of 137
for four da vs. Since the breaking out of the cholera
oa the Slit of August to the 20th iiist., both days
inluMve. there have been 143 interments from
cholera in the old ceuictry, of which 41 were whites
and 102 inroee. In the Catholic cemetery during
the same period there have beem 57 interments,
nearly all of whom died of cholera. Tho bulletins
of the Board of Health show that from the 31st of
August to the 17th inst., both inclusive, there were
reported to that body i;e cases of cholera as occur
riiii; within the corporate limits of the city, 74 of
whom were whites and 62 negroes, and 20 not des
ignated as to color. Of theee 73 had died, 26 white,
42 negroes, and 5 the color not designated. These
statistics will show that the mortality has been much
grater among tho negroes than the whites.
The Dispatch further says :
The cholera has prevailed to a greater extent and
been attended with a larger mortality in Nashville
than any other city in the Union, in proportion to
population, Memphis, perhaps, ai0ne excepted,
where the mortality has been about the same.

If not a Vagrant What Then?
We hnd in the local columns of tho Avalaucho,
of Saturday the following paragraph :
Several parties have ocen arrested in this city
lately upon the charge of vagrancy, which charge
was not sustained. We learn that a gentleman
named Wall Fatton, who was up before the Com
missioner on this charge, has entered snit against
Commissioner Beaumont for false imprisonment,
etc. Damages are laid at $10,000. This will bring
this matter up before the proper tribunal, and the
question will be settled whether a man can be ar
retted upon such a charge while he was actually en
gaged at work, rs weloarn was the case iu this in
stance.'' The "gentleman" who threatens to sue Commis
sioner Beaumont, Mr. Wall Patton, has been singu
larly unfortunate of late. He has boon in the
clutches of those bucy-bodies in blue, the Metropol
itans, two or three times within a month, and they
have been very lenient towards him. A short time
since it was reiorted to .the police that there was a
hole through the floor at the ladies' entrance to the
Posloflice, and that a biped was in the cellar taking
observations through it. An officer went into the
cellar and found this "gentleman" on duty there.
He was marched to the station-house and the offence
being a gross one, ho was compelled to put up a
forfeit ot one hundred dollars. The ''gentloma n"
did not care to have the character of tho "misde
meanor" made public, and he did not appear, but
forfeited his hundred dollars. A few days later, a
policeman on duty on Gayoso street was called upon
by a lady to attend to a case in her house. On in
quiry he found a poor girl, a courtesan, in a puiicof
terror under the bod. She 6tated this "gentleman' '
Mr. "Wall Fatton had threatened to blow her brains
ont and she had lied to this neighbor for protection.
ins policeman look we poor terror-stricken girl to
a magistrate by whom we understand the 4i gentle
man ' was placed under bonds to keep the peace.
"When tho "gentleman" was fined as a vagrant by
Col. Beaumont, he had been, we believe, captured
lounging about a certaiu beer jerking establishment.
He may be able to prove that he is not a vagrant,
but we hardly think he will establish the fact that
the injury to his character is worth $10,000. If he
is.not a vagrant, what is he a student of physiolo
gy or a corrector of feminine vice? We think
the less the "gentleman" airs his reputation, the
better it will appear. Query: Do the gentlemen
who edit the Avalanche and the " gontlcmanly,
hitrh-toned" Mr. Patton consider beer jerking as
