ANDY AT HIS DIRTY WORK.
During ths entlrt canvas through Middle
Mid West Tennessee, Got Johnson and hit
organs denied stoutly that his Infamous Abo
lition White Basis doctrine, had any thing to
do wllh the present ennrnss, or should be
made an issue Id It, but he had no sooner en
tered East Tennessee than he brings It up,
Mid by appealing to the most contemptible
prejudices, attempts to mske'capitnl out of it.

, TO THE PUBLIC. ' '
' jAOKSBosouon, July 7th. 1 855.
The undersigned thitday witnessed thedis
euulon between the candidates for Governor,
before what the citizens of this place say, Wat
as large an audienoe as they ever knew con
rsned hereon a similar occasion. Col. Gentry
led" off in a speech of great eloquence and
force, discusiing the ueual tonics. .
Got. Johnson, in hie rejoinder, charged that
bis competitor had evaded or dodged the Free
Jlatii Retolution he had the honor to Intro
duce in the Senate of the Extra Session of the
Legislature, on the 6th of October, 1843. It
involved a oscat rnmciri.it, he said, and one
which concerned the rights and interests of
the masses. It was obvious why his competi
tor dodged an issue here; which he gladly met
in Fayette county. In that county there were
15,000 slaves in this, Campbell countv, there
were but 1501 The Resolution be hail offer
ed, of which he was proud as the friend of the
people and the poor man, and which had
been voted down by the lordly elave-holders
of Middle and West Tennessee, was in these
"Reeohed, By the General Assembly of the
Btate of Tennessee, that the basis to be ob
served in laying off the State into Congres
sional Districts, shall be the voting population,
without any regvrd to the three-fifllu of the Ne
gro population," .
Gov. Johnson oontended that the honest
working nian of Campbell county was borne
down by the aristocratic slave-holders of
Middle or West Tennessee, and his Fair Paugh
ter and Virtuous Wife, under the law advo
cated by hit competitor, were weighed in the
balances against the Negro Wenches of the
proud slave holder v, .
Col. Gentry, in a rejoinder of 80 minutes,
indignantly denounced the charge of dodging
that or any other issue, as unt rue, and in with
ering terms asked the Governor why he had
not brought it up the day before, in his open
ing speech at Clinton I Were there too many
Knox and Hoane county slaveholders there I
Turning to the Governor and pointing in hi
face, he charged him with denying publicly
in Fayette county and elsewhere, beyond the
Mountains, that his Free Batie Abolition Reso
lution wat an issue in this canvass I He told
Inm that hit organ, the Union and American,
denied that it was an issue. lie told him
that hit friends in the West denied it, and
were excusing him for offering such an infa
mous resolution, on the ground that it wat
done in the confusion of debate, when vari
ous counter resolutions were offered. But
the Governor should not escape under such
false pretences. The foots were, as the Jour
nal would show, that he had his infamous
Resolution called up thirteen days after it wat
voted down by a vote of twenty three to three.
Three Democrats voted for it, and one of the
three was ANDREW JOHNSON.
He said the political career of this man
bad been characterized throughout, by pay
ing the most hypocritical aud obsequious
court to the people by arrogating to himself
the high prerogative of being the exclusive
champion of the rights of the masses, the Me
chanics the people's advocate. And. here
he was, trying to array the poor against the
rich, and advocntiug a disorganizing proposi
tion, that no other man. Democrat or Whig,
South of Mason and Dixon's line, bad ever
advocated. It was a species of low-flung
demagoguism, he would scorn to stoop to.
lie was appealing to the lowest prejudices
and meanest passions of the human heart.
Alhough he (Gentry) was in a division of the
huts where there were but few slaves, he
was ready to enter into a bond with the Gov
ernor to dismiss this question he had to ex
ultingly brought forward, in every county,
and every mountain gorge in East Tennessee,
until the close of the canvass. And he dared
the Governor, on this stand, to promise, if
elected, to urge in his Message, his Free Rasis
Abolition Measure upon the Legislature.
When Johnson came to reply, and was
about to close without noticing the proposi
tion of Gentry, he walked round behind the
stand and asked him to promise to bring the
subject forward in his Message, if elected, but
he declined the offer!

H. F. Janes, thu pioneer of J.inesvillo,
Wisconsin, is now living at Uniontown, on
Humboldt Buy, In California. He is one of
those uneasy characters who ere constantly
moving further west. He writes to the Junes,
ville Gnrette of his migratory propensities:
"I have been constantly working westward
till the nnaty Pacific has mnde a stop to fur
ther progress in that direction. In the fall of
'49 my western progress was suddenly stop,
ped by the I'ticifie; nnd yet the sun sets weal
of me, and my- wife positively refuses to go
to the Sandwich Islands, and the bnrk is
starting off my rails, nnd that is longer than
I ever allowed myself to remain on one farm;
so that I tun ut a loss how to act in the present
Presidential Names.-TIis probable lead
ing candidates for the next Presidency hi.ve
been indicated pretty clearly by the late
Democratic Jubilee at Tammany Hall, by the
late Philadelphia National Know Nothing
Council, and by the late very extraordinary
omnium gatherum of the native odds and
ends of abolitionism nt Cleveland., From
these lofty sources of authority we conclude
that the following are as likely ns any others
to be the great guns for '66:
Democratic Candidate. Heury A. Wise,
National K jV. George Law or Millard
Mixed Abolition. W. II. Seward or Henry
The bolting of Wilson at Philadelphia
shows that he is shifting for nobody else but
himself. If we mistake not, lie bolted at
Philadelphia once before upon the nomina
tion of Gen, Taylor; and he will be very opt
to bolt even the Seward coalition if it ahall
full to nominate Mr. Wilson for tfie succes
sion. JV. Y. Herald.
Death or a Cesturus. An old and re
spected negro man, named Tom, who was
brought from Africa before the Revolutiona
ry War, being then full grown, died about
two months aince nt the plantation of Mr. R.
II, Tison, in South Carolina. . As near as
could be determined he was about 1 80 years
of age. - ;
' Notwithstanding the adoption of the
Prohibitory Liquor law In Maine, and the

MRS. COOKE'S SELECT SCHOOL.
The undersigned, friends and ptronsYf
this institution, bad the pleasure of attending
an examination of the classes on the 10th and
11th instant; and we deem it a simple act of
justice to an indefatigable and accomplished
teacher to say, now at the close f the term,
that she hot done hor duty, and merits our
commendation. "r' ". , ' '
We are satisfied that no teacher-would have
imparted more information during the tern;)
nd a more pleasing and advantageous exhi
bition of thoir acquirements, eould not have
been made by the Scholars, than Was display
ad under two days soerchlng examination.
. The exercises were so varied and inter
spersed as to ettrnct the spectator, and to
preterve the youthful freshness and vigor of
the scholars. Indeed, we have learned, dm
ring the term, that this it a characteristic of
her teaching, and certainly a talisman of sua
oesj, for unlets the anitnat spirits are sustain
ed lbs energies of the mind Will relax.-
Vocal musio we regard as eminently condu
viee to this end; and, in tbit respect, Mrs.
Cooke's School hat attained a point of success
quite remarkable, not only la imparting and
acquiring knowledge rapidly, but in being all
that is meant by the terms "well conducted"
We offer her this unequivocal, approval
aud endorsement as a qualified and successful
teacher, because well deserved.

Athens, July 13, 186. v
On with the War. The Southern Star,
a Democratic paper, published lit Winches
ter, in this Suite, says the Eitfjle & K.nqui
rer, denounces the Rev, Mr. White, a Cum
berland Presbyterian minister, as n "rever
end itinerant . beogur, and a member of no
abolition aid society;'' says also that he 'mer
ited a suit of lur and feathers, nnd a gratis
ride on u piece of rough timber." Mr. White's
offence Is his having dared to lecture on Ho.
minium in Hie town of Winchester. And
has it come to this, that an American minis
ter cannot criticize the tenets of the church
of Roinu without subjecting himself la such
coarse abuse! We .appeal to Protestants
every where to mark the progress Catholic
ity is making in' this country. It has he
come so strong that a Protestant minister
dure not speak against it.
Noticing the attack upon Mr, White, the
Murfreesboro' Telegraph says: " This editor
of the Southern Star is nn unmitigated slan
derer. VVe happen to know something of
Mr. White; he is a native of St. Louis, and a
slaveholder; he is also a minister of high
standing n the Cumberland Presbyterian
church, ne can be attusted by hundreds of re
spectable men in Tennessee. ' .
fTIt is stated that according to the Rus
sian law, every nobleman nnd civil functiona
ry, from tho highest to the lowest grade,
wears uniform. This costume was until re
cently in the fashion of a dress coat with
standing collar nnd embroidery. A Into
ukase has however, changed this foreign hab
it habille into the old national liaftnn.or long
frock and large loose trousers, much better
suited to the cliinutu. The German papers
say that this change has been n ceived with
intense satisfaction. All classes, even from
childhood upwards, in St, Petersburg, Mos
cow, aud the other cities, fling aside with dis
gust every article of Western manufacture,
and adopt the uuw created national garb of
loose trousers and easy jacket of gray cloth,
with green collar and cross upon the breast.
Hatred will thus go down, nnd passing from
sire to son penetrate all the fibres of the
heart, and faculties of the mind.
Kxplosion of a Locomotive. The loco,

A Locomotive Telegraph. The follow,
ing account of the successful inauguration of
Chevalier Bonelli's Invention the locomotive
telegraph has been received from Pied
mont: "The inauguration of the electric telegraph,
acting between enginea in motion, took place
nn May 34 between Turin and Monlcaheri,
in the presence of the ambassadors of France
and England. A long and animated conver
sntion was held between two locomotives
going at full speed, and also between those
focomotilives and the telegraphic otlice."
ISfiT" We are advised, says the Washington
Union, that postmasters should make no re
cord or marks upon registered letters by
which the fact of their containing money or
other valuublcs may be suspected or made
known. It has been ascertained that, In some
Instances, postmasters are in the habit of
marking the word 'registered' on the outside
of such letters, together with the amount of
money enclosed. The practice Is unauthor
ized and impolitic, and is forbidden by the
' Reafiko Machines by the Thousands.
Says the Scientific American: "We have been
inlormed by a manufacturer of agricultural
implements, one who is excellent authority,
that between 15,000 and 16,000 reaping ma
chines will be manufactured and auld this
year in this country. The demand is so great
that manufacturers cannot make thuin fust
enough for their orders. This affords evi
dence of agricultural prosperity, as the oost of
these machines will amount to- nearly t'J
OO0.QP0. Our farmers exhibit wisdom in us
ing and patronizing machinery, A reaping

Arother Presidential Candidate. A
large meeting was held on Saturday
week, at Green. Castle, Iowa, at 'which the
Hon. J, Scott Harrison, (son of the late Gun.

A Cow Worth Kbepino. Peter Lawson,
of Dracut, Massachusetts, has just told an AU
derney cow and oalf for ,3'JS. Last year the
cow produced tl pounds of butter per week
of juch quality -that it sold At fifty cents a

Organized Licentiousness at Brooklyn.
-A New York correspondent of the Buffalo
Express furnishes the following Intelligence
to that Journal: : , -s ; ,
" A wioked end dangerous soclnlisflc " sect
have sprung up or Inte nnd established their
head-quarters In Brooklyn the City of
Chnrchee. This sect style themselves, -Pro-gresslonhrtsVnnd
have made male and female
agents who smuggle themselves into our
family circles and alter three or four visits
adroitly allude to the existence, nnd peculiar!,
ty of their 'institution.' The doctrine of tho
sect Is that matrimony, ns nt present under
stood, is ft ludicrous slmmj that a man has no
right to live with his wife unless he loves
her spiritually ns Well as physically, that a
woman is not bound to live with her husband
Unless she loves him spiritually and physical
ly; and Hint when she sees another whom she
can love better, she is morally obliged to cut
the former and take up with the hitler, and
so on, nccm-ding to each neiV fancy until she
dies. Tlie agents of this sect are very nu
merous and the Institution itself is filled
with proselytes made up in the main of
husbands who have abandoned -their , wives,
nnd of wives who hate abandoned their hus
bands, boother, as one of its agents inform,
ed me, of a beautiful supply of young men
and women who have never yet been yoked
in tho usual form. As yott may readily im
agine this sect is breaking up the pence and
happiness of a great many families.
(kjT The Washington Union, in an erjito.
rial article on the position of the democratic
pnrty on the slavery question, uses the fol
lowing language! "That nn party embracing
members at the North and South Can be nu.
txonalot harmonious in its organisation which
dun nut exclude the question of slavery from
itt creed I" For a wonder, the Washington
Union has, in this instance, told the truth.
The democratic party is just ns unsound and
unreliable as any other party North; equally
nntrua to the property rights of the South.
VVe would perpetrate a grout wrong if we
were to state that any of the old parties were
sound 011 the slavery question. They have
not been for many years; nnd hence the. ne
cessity for building up a new party, upon the
rums of the old parties, that will accord to
the South all the rights guaranteed to her b)
the constitution and laws. If this attempt is
unsuccessful if it has not the sympathy and
support of the Union men, North nnd South
the hopes which centre in the preservation
of the Union are vain I The glorious heritage
must pass into tbe bunds - of the Goths.
White "Indians" in TtXAS. Some of the
recent depredations charged upon the Indians
in Texas turn out to have been committed by
white vagabonds, tho only thing Indian about
them being' their cunning and cruelty. A
Texas paper relates the following: ,
"Mr. Walker, at Dripping Springs, forty
miles West of Austin, was attacked by five
men, apparently Indians, nnd killed. A negro
u ho Was with him nt the time escaped and
reached n settlement, and reported the cir
cumstance. A party then pursued the mnniii.
ders, killed four, nnd gave chase to the fifth,
Who, being wounded, was captured while at
tempting to cross the river. But water washed
off liis paint nnd showed him to ben white
man in disguise. On washing tho faces of the
four dead ones, they also were found to be
white men. The prisoner snid that there was
in the mountains a party of one hundred, who
have teen committing depredations oil the
Ironticr, all of w hich have been charged upon
the Indians." ' , .
1.0N0 TittE CoiUiNO. l'he.Alobile Tribune,
of the 23d Inst., says: "In November of 1848,
a gentleman in Baldwin mailed a letter to a
grocery house in this city. It tviw never re
