Washixotow, D. CM
July 16, 18653:50 P. M.
To Gov. Wtn. O. Broumlom :
I bone, as I have no doubt you will m, that tbe
laws naw-ed by the laft Legislature are faithfully
executed, and that all illegal voters in tbe appruach
inc election t kept from th polls, and that the
election f members of Congress be conducted fair
ly. Whenever it becomes necessary for the execu
tion of the law and the protection of tbe ballot
box, you trill call upon General Thomas for sufficient
military force to sustain the civil authority of the
State. 1 have just read your address, which I most
Presided, U.S. A.
Tbe Governor's "address," tbe people of Ten
nessee will recollect, avowed the very principle
upon which we have since acted, and upon which
tbe President is now making war. Exactly one
year from the day when he telegraphed tbe forego
ing, he sent the following to Gen. Thomas, refusing
military aid to compel an attendance of refractory
mertibers, and of two armed mobs resisting the
Ilcuse and its legally constituted officers:
TVashixgtojt, July 16, 13C6.
General Grant will instruct General Thomas that
tbe facts stated in his telegram do not warrant tbe
interference of tbe military authority. The ad
ministration of the laws and the preservation of the
peace in Nashville belong properly to tbe State au
thorities, and tbe duty of the United States forces
is not to interfere in any way in tbe controversy
between the political authorities of the State, and
General Thomas will strictly abstain from any in
terference between them.
At the same time tha Governor was refused the
necessary military aid at Nashville to protect tk
Legislature and its officers from mob violence; the
President, soon thereafter, ordered the Government
authorities at Now Orleans to use the military to
aid an infuriated rebel mob to break up a Union
Convention of peaceable and loyal men, which has
resulted in tbe cruel murder and wounding of hun
dreds of loyal white and colored men. This feast
was intended for Nashville, and was only prevented
by the prompt action of a talented, fearless and pa
triotic Congress, admitting Tennessee to her origi
nal position in the Federal Union.
The Rebel-Jobnson-Conservative-Convention at
Nashville, has nominated Emerson Etheridge for
Governor, lie is a seditious and malignant rebel,
and was arrested and imprisoned in 18G5, by Major-General
Thomas, for disloyalty and treasonable
speeches. lie advised the overthrew of tbe Stale
Government by force tbe shooting down of the
negroes, and those who commanded them denied
that the slaves wore free denounced Mr. Lincoln
( as a liar and usurper and supported McClellan for
the Presidency in 1864. This is, in brief, the re
cord of the man the great Law and Order party
have put forth, and be truly represents, in senti
ment and temper, the gathering of rebels that
Personally, the success or defeat of either of the
candidates amounts to but little, but the success or
defeat of the principle and parties their nomina
tions represent, are of great moment, and involve
everything fer the future of Tennessee and her loy
al men. The present incumbent is willing to leave
the sctUomt&t of the question to the legal voters of
the State, and has no fears of tbe result. Tbe good
people cf Tennessee by whom we mean the loyal
people have had enough of rebel rulo and have
no wish to again see the State oome under the con
trol of traitors and disorganiaers. Tbe loyal men
now have the whole matter in their own handn
and If they don't hold on and take care of them
elves they deserve defeat and overthrow.
Nomination or Etheridge A Broken
Down Party Hack in the Field.
The nomination of Emerson Etheridge for Gov
ernor, by the Democratic State Convention of yes
terday, bodes no good for the party which is seek
i: g the defeat cf Brownlow, Stokes, Trimble, Ar
nell and Maynard. The ticket is, it is well known,
a depperate resort. Neither ex-Goveinor Camp
bell, Nelson, Netberland, Cooper, nor Peyton would
have tbe nomination, for it was fore-doomed to sig
nal defeat, and a place upon it meant martyrdom,
without the possibility of resurrection. Baxter's
antecedents were so bad that bis nomination would
have been an open admission of a Waterloo rout.
So Etheridge, tbe blase party scullion, the Themtcs
of the stump, the trafficker of tbe most foul, vulgar
ana nuny siang ever spewea up oy an ooscene mina
upon the hustings; a politician who, for years prior
to his banishment to private life, was a dead weight
to his party ; an extravagant and unprincipled par
lian, whose violent passions always carried him to
offensive extremes, was placed upon tbe track.
Ihe nomination of Etheridge is exactly such apiece
of party tactics as that of Vallandigbam for Gover
nor of Ohio, a few years since. Both have a certain
" gift of gad" on the stump, but it always hurts
tb'ir own party worse than their adversaries. Nei
ther of them have tbe slightest discretion, or ever
Bt er their craft within a thousand leagues of tbe
firm-fixed continent of reason and common cense.
During Johnson's administration as Military Gov
ernor of this State, Etheridge denounced him as a
tyrant, usurper and scoundrel on all occasions. He
told a gentleman a few weeks since that he would
not take back a word that be had said of Andy
Johnson, because be had tbe same opinion of him
then tbat he always had. lie was so violent in his
denunciation of Mr. Lincoln's war policy tbat he
was arrested and kept in prison for some time at
Columbus, Ky., by tbe military authorities. Mr.
Etheridge represents tbe anti-disfrancbisement par
ty, lie himself, in December, 1863. eras guilty of
one of the most audacious and infamous attempts to
disfranchise five States and stifle the voice of their
representatives in Congress, ever witnessed in this
country. An election was to be held for a new
Speaker and Clerk of tbe House. E'heridge was
Clerk, and wanted to hold his office and elect Smut j
Cox, (Speaker. To effect this, in making up tbe roll,
be left off five Republican States without the least
plausible pretext, and endeavored to bold the elec
tion without suffering tbe Representatives of Ma
ryland and four other States to sit.
Tbe infamous plot was promptly stifled by tbe
action of Stevens, Wat-hburn and Kel'y, and Col
fax and McPnerson were elected on the first ballot.
Tbe crestfallen intriguer slunk out cf the House
amid tbe jeers of all parties. He narrowly escaped
a lodgment in the old Capitol prison. Of all the
Copperheads who polluted the Capitol with their
abuse of Mr. Lincoln and his emancipation proc
lamation, Emerson Etheridge was among the bit
'erest, vilest, and most unscrupulous. His nomina
tion is an insult to public morals. He will seek to
stir up strife and bloodshed, if possible. He will
be beaten by a majority ranging from 30,000 to
40,000. Nashville Press and Times.

it constitutional?; Those mob orators profess rev.
erence for the lawj and maliciously provoke the peo
ple to trample on a law which had been affirmed
and approvid by our Supreme Court, composed of

Cameron touched lightly on the record of the
Union army, out of revenge probably for his dis
honorable dismisal, and eulogized the rebel army
extravagantly as the embodiment of all honor and
chivalry, and worthy of immorUl honor. The del
egates, at least one-half of whom were disfranchised
rebels, yelled with'delight at this sentiment, and
pern pi exulted in the momentary thought tbat tbe
day might come when such men as Thornburgb,
"Welsh, Frierson, Brownlow and Trimble would
have to ty their native State. - Cameron then made
a bitter tirade against the abolitionists of the North
as being the original authors of the war. The reb
els again yelled.and the colored portion of tbe audi
ence gazed at each other in significant and eloquent
silence. They were at no loss to divine the real
feelings cherished toward themselves by a crowd
who shrieked a wild approval at the villiflcation of
such men aj Wm. Lloyd Garrison, George L. Ste
vens, John Brown, Charles Sumner and Wendell
Phillip. The remarks of Hon. Edmund Cooper
were feeble and spiritless. Those of John Baxter,
Es-j., of Knox, we will notice again.

hundred readers, through hit little paper, "that he,

made merry over the Conservative meeting at the
court house in Knoxville on Monday last. My
dear sir, you are mistaken. I never make merry
over small things. I never make merry at the
death of a neighbor, though he be a very bad one.
Make merry when the would-be Conservative party
was gasping for breath. Make merry when the
"grim monster," has taken hold of a weak, sinful,
poor emaciated party. Ltjh. when they uiust
"shuffle of this mortal coiL" die and no long iiv.
Make morry, indeed. The " Lean Contributor " was
better raised than to laugh on funeral occasions,
when anybody or anything was about quitting earth
forever, no matter which way the spirit went, up
There is one correction I desire to make. Gen
John Crozier Ramsey, late of the Confederate
States Army, (so-called,) well known to their sor
row, by many Union men, was in the court house
in attendence at" the Conservative meeting, but
owing to press of business he left just before pat
terson and Beiskell, making four Conservatives
present, instead of three as reported before.
"The distinguished nobody that we ever heard
of before. Commercial.
"Why, you must be mistaken small patterson, if
you never heard of the Lean Contributor before.
Of course the world knows nothing of him. Tbe
idea that the public ever beard of any one that has
not been spoken of by the Editor, Merchant Prince,

contrast between its dull monotony and general ap

Dxab Sib: In response to a call on me from
Roane in the last Whig, over the signature "E Plu
ribus Unum," to become a candidate to represent
Knox and Roane in the next State Senate, and also
reference to my adherence to the Union, I highly
appreciate, coming fiom "many in one."
I think it entirely premature for candidates to
urge their claims before the people in advance and
embarrass the action of the nominating convention
to assemble at Loudon in May. I have no doubt the
delegates will make a loyal and judicious selection
at least " The office Kill seek the man," then it is the
privilege of the nominee to accept or decline, and
candidates defea'ed before the convention, should,
as true patriots and loyal citizens, support the nom

personal considerations, believing the tustainanee

I had tbe honor of being a candidate for the
Senate in 1612, in this District, from various calls
through the papers. I proceeded to canvass a short
time with two other gentlemen, claiming to be
Union men, (having had no convention to reconcile
conflicting aspirations,) a fourth candidate appear
ed in the field on the Secession ticket, in the per
son of P. M. McClung, since deceased. I could ef
fect no compromise, and in order not to jeopdarize
the election of a Union man, I voluntarilly with
dicw from the contest, and so announced in a
public card, giving my reasons. Mr. John Wester
was elected. Since then I have, as a private citi

I deem it very important that there should be
harmony and action among the Union men, to con
centrate their strength and obtain a large majority
throughout the State. Tennessee is looked on with
deep interest by the loyal States to sustain her pres

years through the prompt and decisive course of
Gov. Brownlow and the loyal majority of the Leg

On motion of M. L. Phillips, Dr. Wm. W. Alex

Captain A. H. Wilson, Samuel M. Henderson and
P. C. Wilson, were appointed a committee on reso
lutions, who, by their Chairman, Dr. Alexander, re
ported the following ' preamble and resolutions,
which were unanimously adopted:
Whereas, In the progress of human event a
new era has dawned upon our country, fraught with
interests most momentous and unprecedented in
our annals, it behooves all men who desire the
greatest possible good to themselves and posterity,
to unite with others, like minded, in an earnest ef
fort to perpetuate freedom and so shape the future
destiny of their common country as shall best se
cure tbo largest amount of happiness, which we be
lieve may be best attained under a stable govern
ment By tbe largest amount of liberty compati
ble with social and political order diffusion of in
telligence reverence for the national flag, obedi
ence to tbe laws, and a cheerful acquiesence in the
expressed will of the majority. Entertaining these
sentiments and regarding it the imperative duty of
every un trammeled citizen of the Republic to fear
lessly and conscientiously act his cart in the great
drama now being enacted, we who recognize the
truth of the trite aphorism, "that eternal vigilance
ia the price of liberty," and believing tbat those
who lately brought our imperiled nationality tri
umphantly through the fiery ordeal of civil war,
engendered by an unparalelled rebellion, are better
fitted to control the future policy of the republic
than those who exerted themselvec to dostroy it, or
who now sympathiza with the discom fitted insur
gents. In order the better to contribute our part,
secure the objects and ends mentioned in this pre
amble, be it
Resolved, by this meeting, that wa hold this being
a representative government, in which all riehtf.i1
power is derived lrom tne people, ana Dy mem. del

2d. Whilst repudiating any spirit of vain dicta
tiveness towards those who may honestly differ with
us in political sentiment, it is, we think, the duty of
an loyal men to co-operate in an earnest eaort to
elevate to positions of Honor, proflt or trust none
but those entertaining the fundamental principles

sed the blighting effects of political heresy, as
taught by Yancy, Toombs, Rhett Davis, Harris
ana otners, the practical fruits of which were fear-
ruiiy illustrated by tne late internecine war, and
the subsequent paralysis of commercial and indus
trial pursuits, zealously to guard by all means
against tbe inculcation of disloyal or treasonable

The ministers of Athens District, 3L E. Church,
met at Kingston at the call of Bro. J. Albert Hy
den, Presiding lderfcon Friday morning, April 5th,
at 6J o'clock, for the purpose of forming a perma
nent district association for mutual improvement,
social intercourse and spiritual advancement All
the traveling preachers were present except two,
and also several local brethren. A Constitution and
By-laws were submitted by a Committee appointed
for that purpose, and adopted. Reports were heard
from the various charges, giving satisfactory evi
dence of the efficiency and faithfulness with which
the ministers have prosecuted their labors during
the past nin months.
The Committee on the state cf thti work reported
1,400 conversions, and near that number of acces
sions to the Church since May last.
The Reports on Sabbath Schools were very en
couraging, more than half the schools however hav
ing been suspended during the winter. It is impos
sible to give numbers. Several resolutions were
passed by the association worthy of notice: and
1st. Resolved, That we recommend the strict ob
servance of the disciplinary rule on organization of
Sabbath Schools. See Discipline, p 225, Qaes. 1st,
2d. Resolved, That in our opinion Union Sabbath
Schools are subversive of Methodism, especially
whew books are furnished from the American Sun
day School Union.
3d. Resolved, That we recommend that Sabbath
School celebrations be held in all the charges during
the spring or summer, and that proper persons be
selected to deliver addresses.
4th. Resolved, That we recommend that as far as
practicable, such persons as are religious be selected
as teachers in all our schools, believing that they
alone feel the great importance of practical Godli
ness. 5th. Resolved, That the ministers of the district
be requested to preach one sermon annually in all
their congregations on the duty of supporting the
6th. Resolved, That each minister preach one ser
mon in all his congregations on the subiect of tem
perance before the next meeting of the association.
On motion, a vote of thanks was returned to the
citizens of Kingston for the courteous and hospita
ble manner in which we were received and enter
tained during the session of the association.
A rote of thanks was also returned to Bro. J.
Albert Hyden for the faithful and impartial manner
in which he presided over our deliberations.
Sabbath was a precious day to all who had the
privilege of attending divine service. In the morn
ing, at 8 o'clock, the friends of the Sabbath School
cause met Several short, well-timed speeches were
made by the ministerial brethren present, and ap
propriate music well executed added to the interest
of the occasion, after which the ordinance of bap
tism was administered, and quite a number of per
sons received in to full membership by the Presiding
Elder, according to the prescribed form of our Dis
cipline, which was a scene of more than ordinary
interest At 11 o'clock the Elder preached an able
and impressive sermon, after which a collection was
taken up for Bro. S. W. Hyden, P. C, amounting
to $38.68, which did much credit to the large and
aaessee Cope eriieac.;

According to the Banner's published list
seven counties m .Last Tennessee were ac
tually represented, and ttco by proxy, and
tne sum total of tneir delegates amounted
to tveenty-fovr. The most prominent of these
delegates was John JJaxter, J&sq., of ivnox-

The Blindness ana Deafness of Smokers
31. Sichel, in the course of twenty-eight
years practice, has frequently met with
blindness from paloy of the optic nerve, pro
duced by the abuse of smoking, and he be
lieves that there are few persons who can
smoke for any long period more than five
drachms of tobacco daily without their
vision, and oftcr their memory, becoming
affected. He had previously spoken of
another form of amaurosis, symptomatic of
aeurium tremens, and caused Dy aiconouc
drinks. It is frequently accompanied by
trembling of hands in the morninjr, and at
a later period by morning vomitting. Both
of these varieties are very slow in their pro
gress towards cure and very refractory to
treatment. This latter occupies a long time,
and an essential point, vf course, is the dis
continuance of the practice that has given
rise to the blindness. . We cannot attempt

I cannot close without saying something in honor

try to be charged with the commission of crimes,
such as "horse stealing," "political preaching,"
"being in John Brown'a raid." "occuDrmir church
es that do not belong to them," fcc. But what are
the facts in the case. Aa to the M.E. Church I will
be safa in saying that eight-tenths of the Method
ists in this country remained loyal to the Govern
ment of the United States, notwithstanding the
majority of the preachers turned traitors to thnir-
country and used every persuasion in their power to
lead off tbe people. When the war was over the
loyal Methodists invited the authorities of the M.
E. Church to come here and ortr&nizA th Nniet.nn
Conference. In the providence of Goi, Bishop
Clark came herein June. 1865. and oro-ni.H .
conf9renoo, and sent out over forty loyal ministers.
Since that time we have been in possession of this
country, as a church, and are occupying churcLes
that equitably and justly belong to those loyai
-ueiuoaieis. xnese people built these houses of
worship with their hard earned money ; and is it
just, is it right that men who have been true to their
country, should now be turned out of their places
of worship by rebels and traitors. We have not
taken possession of church that was occupied
equitably by the Church South, all charges to tha
In reference io the " large and well constructed
house of worship in this place," I would remark
that in June, 1865, 1 came to this, Jonesboro' Dis
trict, and organized a society in this town, eight-
icnins oi tne Juetnoaists uniting with us. several
of them had entertained Southern proclivities, but
they said that as slavery was dead and there now
being no difference in church discipline and doc
trine, there was no use for a Church, South. This
was the caso with nice-tenths of all the societies on
my district. We then purchased the Female Col
lege here, that once belonged to the Odd Fellows,
our Southern friends joining us heartily in this
good work. God then gave us a gracious revival of
religion, the result was, the people buried their past
difficulties, aud we had one of tho most harmoni
ous societies in all this country. This state of thiDgs
continued until the preachers of the Church, South
came amongst us. Their advent has brought dis
cord and strife, and they are chargtble with all the
divisions that have been made. The people hold
thetn responsible, and in the great day of eternity
iney will nave 10 answer ior weir iniquitous aeeds.
For the purpose of counteracting these evil influ
ences, twenty -two of our best citizens published the
following call to the loyal people of Washin gton
" Whereat, various attempts have been made by
the late rebel preachers, and their sympathizers, to
obtain possession of the church property in the
town of Jonesboro-', now in the possession of the
loyal people, and well knowing that these organi
zations are supported alone by those who lately at
tempted to destroy our Government and that their
destructive ideas are identical with those that caua.
ed the late bloody rebellion.
We, respectfully invite all loyiil people,

In the Knoxville rebel organ of the 16th
of October last, 3Iessrs. Frazicr and Hcis

in cards in opposition to negro voting, and
the articlo adds :
" It will require more ingenuity and po
