Friend Poit You will hare diseorered ere

of my Democratic liberties In the matter of
addressing a social and complimentary letter

long gone by days, been attacked bv the
"enti Amtricant"tw first broadside "being
6red at me by the little, short red coat man of
the Chattanooga Advertiser; and In return
for this, It is andscions movement, I have pre-
Jiared and herewith aend to your address a
nil ehnrge of grape and cant tier shot, of Ameri
can manufaeture, which I hopu you will bavo
the kindncM te aee that your clever "Devil"
will touch off through the Post, after one of
his msster waya of doing things "up brown, '

Loudon, Tenn., June lMh, I8S8.
To Messrs. Vrandall t Cooper, Editors, Ac.
Chattanooga Aduertiser Gentlemen: In your
paper of date I'itli Inst,, now before me, I find
an article relative to myself which I pro
nounce to be fnlse in almost every particulnr,
nd it must be evident that you were not
prompted by honorable motives in making
audi an attack upon ne. It ia but recently
that you came among'st us, and it is not rea
sonable to supKsa that yon are siilliuieiilly
versed in the history, political, of long by
gone days, here in tliis section, so as to justi-
fy you in speaking in such very knowing terms
as in my case. It ia evident that your object
was effect, regardless of truth nnd honor.
You say that I was the Whig candidate in
J 880, and that I wrote a circular very nbu
aive of the Democratic pnrty. This is falsa,
for there Is not to be found one word of abuse
of the Democratic party therein, from begin
ning to end; and whether I as the Whig
csnuLuiis or not, anouii ratner te consuls
ea as a matter or adjourn'
'Whigs were at ihat time for
I was against mm snid so in mv circular of
. 1889, and thus talked oil through the can
. vnss j aUo, there were two Whia, out and
. -. out Olny men, runningfor the same office and
against me. The Dcniocratie party nnd my
eeJf never did ditrer upon any of the cardinal
I principles of Democracy, unless you would
ike to make Mr. Van fiuren a cardinal prin
eipleof Democracy. I did not give my vote
te the distinguished magician of Kinderhook.
I voted for "Tip and Ty," nnd feel proud of
myself on account thereof to this good dny;
and the action of the called Extra Session,
convened by the President, operated in the
ahnpeing of my course thereafter. The
votee that I gave in U40 and 1841 were in
exact agreement with my publicly expressed
determinations throughout my canvass of '89,
nnd any man uttering a syllable to the con
trary utters a wilful and malicious falsehood;
and it was on account thereof (thai is, mv
publicly expressed views,) and of the court
dence reposed that more than three hundred
of the very best and respectable portion of
the Democrats of McMinn county gave me
their support against their regular candidate
in the year 183U such as Mr John Crawford,
Hiram Worley, Moses Cunningham, William
II. Cooke, and others "of equal merit, all of
wlio'ji are well known to the public. It was
' impossible for me to have done justice to truth
nnil correct principle by acting otherwise
than I did. This is an old and stale Whig
charge, against which I was fully nnd tri
umphantly sustained, by thenoble Democracy
. ef McMinn, and remained as a "dead Injun,'"
until ret unci tn ted a few years since by one of
t he greatest living men of the present age of
the world that is, en his own estimation.
The wise and initiated will understand who
is alluded to. You again say, that since the
year 1817 I have not been considered as
worthy of the confidence of the party. The
truth of history brands you witli liar in this
nmtter. In the venr 1848 I was the reiviilnr
nominee of the Detnocrulie party for County.
lyouri iierx oi juoiiun. Having received It
Totes in the Convention more than both my
opponents, there being three aspirants in snid
Convention near one thousand votes were
polled, and at the regular March election 1
received a majority of S 0 votes, more than
doubling the usual Democratic majorities,
over the regular candidate of the Whig party,
and who was as good and true a Whig himself
as the county could boast. You have fur
ther stated that I hnvo caused more trouble
and dilliculty in the Democratic party of Mc
Minn county than that of any ten Whigs
therein. Now, the truth or falsity of tliis
- charge will depend upon what constiiutes the
Dcniocratie party of said county. Whenever
it so happened that two or more Dou-ocrnts
opposed each other, which was a matter of
frequent occurrence, the Democrat that I
aupportcd beat his opponent in that county
in every single instance save one, during a
period of near fifteen years. Should you
" make the minority to constitute the Demo
cratic party of McMinn, then you have spoken
" truth for once, for I will frankly state that I
not only caused trouble and dilR nilty but dis
may throughout the ranks of the minority
democratic party of McMinn, visible traces of
which are to be seen to this good day and it
is to the defeated portion of that party
(Democratic) that you are indebted for the
valuable information given to the world of
me in that particular. Hut should it take a
majority to constitute the Democratic pnrty
of MoMinn, then in that ease you are guilty
nf stating another base and wilful falsehood.
Because your every motive prompting to no
tion in this whole matter is full of low down
meanness. Ye filthy scavengers, you will
find in the end in this, your attack upon me,
that you traveled a long way to get into the
wrong road to honorable fame as public jour
nalists. So far as my public and private no
tions are concerned about which the public
should feel any interest, to have brought to
light, I am entirely at your defiance. My
- aoUons have all been taken and performed in
the light; there is no skulking and hiding up
about me. In the years 1824, '28 and '8a, I
oted for Oen. Andrew Jaekson for the Presi-
denoy. In 1836 I voted for Hugh L. White
' agaiust Martin Van Bureii; 1840 for Harrison
and against your "Kinderhook'1 mngicinn;
1844 for James K. Polk; 1848 voted for Gen.
Cass, and in 185'2 for Mr. Pierce. Now, my
' dear sirs, do pray be so good as to tell me
' what more ooulJ any decent Democrat have
. done. Yon laud Mr. Wise to the very skies
as being a good Democrat he voted for Gen.
"Harrison in 1840. Your rules must work both
waya or they will not do to rely upon in
solving Questions of such powerful mannUutle.
You and others are only getting a little grain
' jealous of me on aocount of certain indica
tions favorable to ".Sam." I tell yon in plain
English that I love "Sam," and i don't care
if all creation, "and the balance of mankind, "
knows it; and I am for him, and have been
. for '-Samuel" for the past fifteen years nnd
I have never seen Sam to this good day either.
To be more explicit 1 am for the American
platform Americans should rule America
"let none but Americans be placed upon guard
to-night," was the watchword of the great
Washington just upon the eve of an impoi
. tant battle with the foreign enemy. Wash
, ington was far seeing, and he beheld the turu
. ing point. The battle was fought and won
and with that victory came peaoe. Just to
in the affairs of this Government. A great
crisis is upon ua we are now upon the eve
. of a great turning point unless speedily ar
retted. General "nam" has given out the
conjinond: "Let none but Americans be placed
-lupon- guard," and our. word for it, if that
t1, voice should be heeded, all will fie clear
alike, Host, West, North and South, all will
be equally lighted up, and look the same,
11 r Jtnowing no south, no rth, -no East, no
'West. The body politic hoe become corrupt,
' " and needs doctering the augean stable must
be oleansed, and 1 am into the work. You,
" ' cursed me in 1 840 because of my refusal to
-- aid in keeping the corrupt Van lluren dynes
ty in power; and yoq may curse me again, in
- the year of our Lord 1843, for- aught I eare.
I am beyond the mark of your poison-dipped
- t ssniM Having no personal motive in view,
aside from that wbieh all should feel deeply
I interested and concerned about, the perpetu-
ity ef the geuius of the free institutions of
I this-Government, as were intended by our
- Patriotic fathers. Therefore, I fear not.
"Be sure that yoq are right, and then go
ahead," la my motto, sever stepping to count
noses. My opposition to the" re-election of
Annrew jounson la a certain fixed fact, and
motives purely patriotio have brought about
this result or determination.
In conclusion, permit me, gentlemen, to
suggest to von the propriety of holding in
reserve for home consumption, a small portion
of that, valuable article) sympathy, which so
bountifully flowed from the abnndnnce nf
yonr hearts, In behalf of the Editors of the

We copy the following from the editorlnl

Stale Central Committee:
"The unanimity with which the politicians

of its being n Duniocrnliu principle, nnd no
foreigner Ii is any right whatever to complain,

and altering the lawn of" naturalization, they
violate not even on implied contract. In hia
social condition thu foreigner ia governed by
the same laws that rule the native born, unci
whether good ur bad, they must operate alike
on nil. If they seek our shores with the hope
of ruling us, then they nre unfit for citizen,
nnd have no right to complain nf the purely
dufvnaivo rule of the Know Nothing, who are '
determined Americana ahull rule America."

In the cold weather, espeolully, ufy disease raged with
almost Insupportable vollence. J huva tried the multi

ances, but without any permanent relief. At very great
expense, 1 employed igedieitl aid. 1 remained many
months under the charge of Uie bst reputed lu our vl
chilly, but but found belter success. I had recourse
to the most AH ful pract lit loners In Dellvllle and Kings

considered incurable when at last, as one given up to
die, had lain nearly three months suffering extreme
agny and unable to obtain relief front any quarter, I
whs recommended to use m niedlclue called Metrioam
AfuManff LiniiHmt1 to be found at your drug store.
Though I had nevet heard of such a mediclM, such was
the statef my ease that 1 resolved to try It. The effect
eeemed ocarcely credible to any self, yt ft wail so. The
Rains left me otiUrely, and after ipunrting more than nut
