I Lare learned that lifcitcr, in the speech I have re
plied to, alluded to a personal difficulty I bad at.
Oreenevillo in 18C1, in strong terms of censure.
Jow Baxter waa one of my counsel before tbo Jus
tice of the Peace, in that case, lie knew that I wa
attacked for the third time by a Terr dinserous man,
; who Lad, for nearly two years, vowed to take my
me, ana tnat 1 tad tried every way to avow ana to
conciliate him, and finally fought in self defence
when fiercely assailed with deadly weapons, .lid
has declared five hundred times that I was entirely
justified in all that I did. Indeed he has censured
me for not shooting the man long belore we iinai
difficulty, and for trying to long to avoid it. But
now that it answers his political ends, he violates
his professional fidelity; betrays the confidence re
posed in him as a lawyer, and tarns upon mo like a
traitor, as he has proved himself to be to all others.
But this is in keeping with his conduct, to wards
others. For weeks after the assassination of Mr.
Lincoln reachod Knoxville, this man charged pab-.
licly on the itroc-U that President Johnson had been
a party to the aisasBination. - But now, of all others
in East Tennessee, aspires to be the peculiar defend
er of the President.
Reply to Jobn Baxter, Esq., of Knox
vllle, being the Cundi'dlng Portion of Vie Speech of Hon.
A. J. Fletcher, at Joneiboro', Tenn., Aej'iit 17A,
Having addressed tbo large crowd at length on
the political questions of the day, Mr. Fletcher said :
Having diecuHsed at length the principal iwues of
the day, 1 regret being called upon to ank your at
tention to a matter entirely personal. I allude to
en unprovoked and brutal attack upon me in a pub
lic fpeech recently delivered at Grecneville, by John
Baiter, Esq., of Knoxville. This attack was roost
uneipect'jd and uaaccountsble. You have seen
that my course as a poaker hi free from personali
ties. Besides, Baxter and myself have occupied, as
I thought and as he professed, the attitude'of per
sonal friends from the time of hi coming to Ten
nessee, down to the day of his extraordinary speech,
at Oreeneville. As lawyers, practicing in adjoining
circuits, we have interchanged many professional
courtesies and recipr-jcal favors. I freely admit
that ho has placed me under personal obligations to
him. lie ha always, heretofore, cpoken ,of me in
the very highest terms, both as a man and as a law
yer. In return, 1 hava alwtys been his defender;
where I could honorably do "so, and his apologist
ben 1 could do no more. I have studiously sought
to cover his numerous error? with the mantle of
charity, and hoped for better things from him in the
future - 1 '
I am told that tho pretext for bi. assault upon me
was a f pooch dolivorod by me at Knoxvillo on the
1th instant. This was only a pretext. If thcr5 was
tbo remotest ullu&ion to him, or his record, or Lis
position, in that speech, 1 was not aware of it at tho
time. Certainly nothing of the kind was intended.
TBI REHEL REC.1MEXT KTORT.
I have not been able to procure a papei contain
i:.g a report of the speech, but I have just spent
several days at Grccncvillo, and had full and accu
rate reports from thoso proeent. Baxter charres me
,th attempting to raise a regiment for the rebel
fcTvtoo, and knowing that this charge had been
made and fully mot bofore, he puts himself upon the
witnoss stand and maltus a ttalcmentin which there
ii not a syllable of truth from beginning to end. lie
details a conversation witn mo mat never occurred.
He makes mo to say thut I was going to Kichmond
to obtain authoiity to raise a regiment, and that I
was terribly in earnest. There were persons in his
audience who knew and understood ail the facts in
regard to this matter, and they instinctively turnod
to each other and pronounced the charge untrue. It
i not nuceb&sry here, so noar to Groeneville, to vin
dicate myself against this charge. Inquire of any
uf tbo loyal citizens of Grecneville and you will
learn the facts. I did, iu the rummer cf 1862, un
der the ailvico of tho leading Union men of Grecne
ville, fpiak of getting pcrmision to recruit the
Union conscripts of the county then hiding and be
ing bunted down, with a view cf marching thorn
into tho Fedoral lines. But it was merely matter of
(.nnvernation among the Union men, and by moetof
them IhO'lgtA Ho iinprtMiticaljlo, oiid no stops was
Uleii exct'i't to make the proposition, which waa at
once defeated by rebel citizens, who wrote to Kich
mond charging that I was a Lincolnito, and that
lis a hole matter was a trick of Union mon to get
the Union conscripts out of the country. Baxter
next charges me with fleeing from Knoxville when
Longslrict approached the city, and of lying out
dunre the sieee. Such conduct he seems to have
denounced as displaying a great want of courage
and patriotism. It is true that on the approach of
Longntreet I did leave Knoxville, in company with
some twenty loading citizens of the place, and went
to Barboureville, KyM whore we remainod till the
wigfl was over, and then returned ; but Baxter seems
careful to conceal the fact that I left Knoxville in
A.:t cviiipauy traveled with him remainod with
him at IShrboursville, and returned and rode into
Knoxville in his company. The only differoace be
tween Buxter and myself in this affair was, that I
left under the advice of Federal Generals, who knew
that if captured I would not be treated as a prisoner
of war, but be sent to Castle Thunder or Andereon
ville, when it was well known that Baxter left or
tftct, and to have the appearance of fleeing from
tfce rebels, it being well known that the rebels
wo-ld not moloet him, but would recognize him as
Baxter, in the next place, with the instincts of a
raCan, invados my domestic circle and charges mo
ith leaving my family in Paducah on the approach
of Forrest, and Jleeing to Indiana. -Like the first
statement, this is a simple falsehood, unalloyed with
the leapt mixture of truth. I remaiued in Paducah
.o days after tho batiia, and, having buried my
brother-in-law, a citizon, who was killed near his
tome, 1 took mv family with me to Indiana, where
I was able to provide for them during the balance
of tha war. Not so with Baxter, lie ran off and loft
bis familv in Knoxville durine the siejre, and when
Le returned one of tbcm had died from the effects of
terror and friuht. which his presence might havo
prevented. 1 regret to make these allusions, but
Bailer has cast the first stone, without remembering
that he live in a glass hou?o.
HAITER S AJiTKCKDKN TS.
1 havo now a few words to say of ilr. Baiter.
Tne brutal and unprovoked attack he has made
'.pen mo releases mo from all personal obligations
to him, and leaves me freo to retort opon bim. ;lt
no longer my duty to palliato or excuse his of
funsos. Let us look for a moment at his history.
John Baxter came from North Carolina to Ten
i iisfee over ten years since. On accaunt of crimes
committed bofora ho came here, ho was disabled
from holding any office ot houor or trust in the t?tato
"f Tennessee. By his procurement tho law of T:n
nesoee was quietly and almost by 'stealth modified
foasuot to exclude tha duellist from .holding ofi
nee, unlet for duelling in Vti Stale. lUving ou
twned this statutorv pardon, bo at onoo becamo
active office-seeker. When the rebellion presented
itself, he considered but two questions. First, how '
"i-.no uiuney oui vi .L octuuu, nuii-u
the winning sido. lu tho first ho was eminently
MiccetJ-ful ; but in the ijcond his iudgmont was at
frtult. During the enthe war his business was, like
a vulture, to sit ttpon tho street corners watching
for the llood-hounds of the rebellion to brine in
I nion prisoners. As soou as one wa3 dragged in,
Baxter, or bis jackails, were about him, and very
soon liMij L;s uoto ror a irgo amount, and often a
deed of trust upon his land. It mattered but little

trust was the great question. The widow of poor

the Government of tho United
Meeting or Hadical Union Men or Polk
At A meeting of the Kadical Union citizens of
Polk county, held at the Court House in Benton, on
May Cth, 18C7, Kobert N. Fleming wa called to
the Chair, and Luther Lillard, Esq., requested to act
as Secretary.' , ,
The Chairman briefly explained the object of the
meeting to be to express their views in relation to
political matters, and to appoint delegates tj rep
resent the Kadical Union men of Polk county in
the District Convention to be held at Athens, Mc
Minn county, on the 11th inst.,- for the purpose of
nominating a Kadical Union candidate for Con
gress, and also to confer with, delegates from tho
other counties of the District in nominating candi
dates for the' Legislature.'
On motion, a Committee of three was appointed
by the Chair to draft a preamble and resolutions
expressive of tho views of the meeting, and John
N.' Taylor; John B. Cartor, and E. W. Vanzant,
wero named said Committee, who, after having ro
t)r$d a short time, reported the following preamble
and resolutions, which wore unanimously adopted :
"Whereas, Ia tho present excited state vl politi
cal affairs in Tennesseo and throughout the Union,
it is manifest from the matters at issue that there are
but two parties one endeavoring to uphold and
maintain the loyal Congress of tho .United Stales,
and I j appropriate measures secure the blessings of
peace and good government, aiming so to settle and
shape affairs as to guard the nation, saved at such
an immense sacrifice of blood and treasure during
the late rebellion, from tbe recurrence, if possible,
of tbo liko torriblo ordeal again, and also to sustain
the loyal State Government of Tennessoo, no less
bitterly attacked than the general government, and
which, by its Governor, Vi. Q. Brownlow, aud Leg
islature, has accomplished much of which we may
justly feel proud the other party, in bitter hostility
to all those objects, though composed soomingly of
somewhat discordant materials, is really a compound
of only one ingredient hostility to the Union,
Union men and Union measures whose only ef
fort seems to render vain and of no effect the sacri
fices made in putting down the worst rebellion the
world has ever witnessed, the price paid to save the
nation. Therefore we, a portion of the Kadical
Union men of Polk county, as expressive of our
views, adopt the following resolutions :
Resolved, That we will sustain the loyi.l Congress
of the United States in the measures they have
adopted, and are likely to adopt, for the purpose of
permanently settling the States lately in rebellion,
and securing equal rights and tho blessings of peace
and good government to all.
Jtcsolcid, That we utterly disapprove and con
demn tho foolish and corrupt policy cf Andrew
Johnson, President of the United Slates, in his
cndloss strife and contention with Congress, and his
wricked naeutxsptions, "who, to rotivo dountt partjr,
has deserted his own avowed principles, and has had
recourso to disloyal end treasonable materials with
which to rebuild tho rotten edifice, thus clearly
showing that disloyal sentiments arc not those of
progress, and that, while there is a growth in the
world's opinions, and while some men have capaci
ty for progress, there are nevertheless fogies, men of
obstinate ideas, who. swinqinq around a eirele at
wonderful speed, stop after all just wnere tney
Resolved, That we tender our thans to the lion.
Horace ileynard, our Representative in the last
Congress of the United States, for the firm, manly
and consistent course steadily pursued by him in that
body, and that we feel entire confidence in his tnea
patriotism, integrity and ability.
Rcsolvftlf That we congratulate the peopleof Ten
nessee on the loyal, prudent and maaly course pur
ued bv Gv. W. G. Brownlow as the Executive of
the State ; that he has shown himself worthy of the
high trust reposod in him by the loyal people, and
that we feel unabated confidence in his integrity
and ability, and therefore wo will give him our cor
dial support for re-election.
Resolved, That we feel proud of the respect the
loyal members of tho Legislature of Tennessee have
deservedly acquired among all loyal men every
where, in other States and among other people, as
well as among ourselves, by the signal measures
they have carried through that body, and which
show that, while others have been progressing, Ten
nessee has neither stood still nor retrograded.
Resolved, That when our Copperhead-Conservative-Rebel
opponents make their shameless appeals
for support to the colored people, whose enfran
chisement they were the last in the world to grant,
we feel proud that the humiliation involved in it is
not ours, and we feci equally certain it is not the
Resohed, That in view of all consequences, as we
know our friends, wo will never join our enemies.
On motion, the Chairman nominated tho follow
ing gentlemen as delegalos to the Convontion at

Lillard, Esq., K. D. Mitchell, Esq., Simoon E. Brow-

and myself too much houor. At Belmont you man
ifcstsd your traiu, neither of us being near. At
Fort Donelson, aLo, yon illustrated your whole
! character. 1 was not near, and General JdcFhorson
in too subordinate a capacity to influence you. Until
you had won Donelson I confesu I was almost cowed
by tho terrible array of anarchial elements that pre
sented themselves at every point; but that admitted
tho ray of light which I have followed since. I be
lieve you are as brave, patriotic and just as the great
prototype, Washington ; as unselfish, kind-hearted
and honest as a man should bj but your chief char
acteristic is tbe simple faith in success you have al
ways manifested, which I can liken to nothing else
than the faith a Christian has in a Savior. This
faith gave you victory at Shiloh and Vicksburg.
Also, whon you have completed your best prepara
tions you go into battle without hesitation, as at
Chattanooga no doubt?, no reserves ; and I toll you
it was thu that made us act with confidence. I
knew, wherever I wa, that you thought of me, and
if I got in a tight place, you would como if alive.
My only points of doubt woro in your knowledge i

ton immediately in person, hich indicates either a
confirmation o'r a likelihood -of confirmation. I
start in the morning to comply with the order, but
I shall say vcrv distinctly on my arrival there that
I accept no appointment which will require me to
make that city my headquarter. This, however, is
not what I started out to writ about. W bile I have
been eminently successful in this war, in at least the
confidence of the public, no one feels more than me
how much of this success is due to the energy, skill,
and harmonious putting forth of that energy and
skill, of those whom it ha been my good fortune to
have occupy a subordinate position under me. There
are many oilker to whom these remarks are appli
cable to a greater or lea degree, proportionate to
their ability as soldiers. But what I waat to to ex
