Mr. J icon Womack, on old citizen of
Meigi county, near theMcMinn line, was
tnurdercd by two of hi slave on Tues
day of lust week. There wus no other
waite person on the farm at the lime;
but it appears from' the atntenictiU of
some of the slaves, Una on Tuesday af
ternoon Mr. Woinaek attempted to cor-
rect one of the negroes for aouie misde
meanor the negro resisted, knocked his
master down, and jumped upon him. He
called to another boy, who was within
healing, to come and take his assailant
off. The boy ran up, but, instead of as-'
aisting his master, handed a knife to the
other n-gro, with which he immediately
cut the struggling man's throat from ear
to ear, and mangled him in a
manner. The body was taken by the ne
groes to the creek, sunk and covered with
drift and logs where it was found on
the day following, through the disclosures
of ft third negro who was privy to the
concealment. One of the negroes engag
ed in tho killing, we loam made his es
cape and is still at large; the other was
arrested by the neighbors, and, as soon as
the facts were made sufficiently cleart
was hung by them on a tree near where
the crime was committed. ,
Mr. Womaok was some sixty years of
age, and owned considerable property.
The Revenue.
A bill hiis been reported from the Com
mittee of Ways and Means, in the Con
federate Congress, which proposes a tax
of one-fifth of the income of every person in
the Confederate States during the year
The Knoxville liiyitter says it is a good
measure We say it is not only not good,
but that tho member from Tennessee
who votes for it will get liberty to stay at
home the baluiico of his life, unhurt hon
ed by publics cares.
SHr Lincoln' Proclamation change
the whole character of the contest, and
renders the war on the part of the North
solely and avowedly for the Abolition of
Slavery and the Establishment of Negro
Equality. We don't; care if a man owns
a hundred nigger, if ho continues to
cling to the Lincoln government and
hopes and desires its success, he is just as
good au Aboltionist, and practically as
much in favor ol Negro Equality, as Wen
dell Philips, (lurrison, Greeley, or any of
the run-mud fanatics of the ultra school.
We now want to seo how many of tho
East Tennessee sympathisers will gulp

From the Potomac.
(From the Richmond Kii'iuircr, of the 2jih.
The late events on the Potomac, since
the capture of Harper's Ferry, may be
etuted thu:
On Thursday, the 16th, Leo whose
forces were concentrating at fShnrpsburg,
was confronted by MuClullan who had
fojjowed hiui thither fnnn Boonsljpro'.the
duy before. On Tuenlay evening a light
and harmless cannonade occured lasting
a few hours. On the noxt day the great
battle of Sharpsburg, was fought, lasting
until night. Some of General Lee's forees
arrived during the action, . portion of
them at an advanced hour. The close
of tho battle left us in possession of the
field; and on tho next morning it was
discovered that MeOlellan hud retreated.
Gen. Lee held the field all day Thurs
day, caring lor the wounded and the
dead.' He then crossed tho Poioiiinc,
which was only about two mile distant,
and took position at or near Shepards
town. We think ho thus moved nearly
or quite his whole army.
The general of the enemy ascertaining
his w ithdrawal to the south side, began
what they call their pursuit. Perhaps
deceived to some extent by the stories
with whioh they deceive their people,
they even ventured to throw over a force
of ten thousand men to press the flight, of
the "disorganize Confederates. How
this expedition fared, on Saturday last,
let the telegram in another column tell!
Another chastisement, swift and sudden
and severe lias fallen upon tho enemy
fiom tho hand of Jackson.
General Lee's present position we do
not knowwhether he is si ill on the
South sulo or whether he has crossed his
army to tho other. But he has his plans,
and himself and his army, crowned with
fame of new exploits, are in tho highest
spirits. We will not even guessnt his pains
lest it might suggest tho right idea to the
enemy. .
But surely Gen. Lee can be cheerfully
trusted to mango the operations confided
to him. That he will do this to the best
advantage, may well be inferred from his
brilliant career, from the campaign on
the (.'liiikaliominy to this hour. II is
plans have been admirably conceived
udmirably concealed from the enemy,
ami admirably executed. To tho enemy
he must seem like a cross eyed man, nev
er striking where he seems to be looking.
- Heout-fneruled MoClelKft on the
Otrtf-kalioiTimy 00 tnsili a fool of Pope
from the Jlapidan to .Mmiassaa ho las
disgraced McC'lellan again, by the cap
ture of llftrper'a Ferry with nearly twelve
thousand prisoners, right before his eyes,
while McClellan thought h was about to
si ike at Harrisburg or Washington.
While ho has managed well. Ids ofiicers
and soldiers have executed like heroes,
and continued suocesa bus gladdened the
heart ot thn country.
Geii, Lee Ins thilted his late position
by a few miles. Ho is, it may be. sti 1 1 011
tins DfttlK ot tne i otoniac msteuu ol llie
oilier. In the feelings of nonio there is a I
vasl tlifjereneo in the t'vo positions.
I i
dillerrnee, in fact, is an hour' march.
For ourselves w aro perfectly content in
the conviction that it is strategy that put
our h en iv where it is, the march follow
ing as it did on the heals of a victory.
What the strategy is, wo could only guess;
limiiapa Burnside imagined something of
it .Sunday, when .lankson was ttun-
derjrij in his rear, and racing with him
for the fotomno crossing.
Lot our people, therefore, lie composed
and patient and cheerful. Rot reals are
often simulated. They nro like the
croaob before tho spring of the lion.
Tjcy may be but the running start of the
leaner. Let us be confiding where con
fidence has boon so tvcll earned. So long
as General Lee ia ehenrful and content,
and his army in good spirits, we shall see
in these facta abundant reason why we
should be to likewise.
