GEN. BRECKTNRTOGE NOMINATED ron
GOVEKNOB.-At a largo Johnson
meeting in Ballard Count}-, Tennes?
see, last Monday, Cen. John C.
Breckin ridge was nominated for
Governor. A letter to the Louis?
ville Courier says:
Col. Turner offered the resolution
instructing the delegates to vote for
John C. Breckinridge for Governor.
You should have seen the wild en?
thusiasm it created. Shouts -went np
from all parts of thc court house,
although no one had thought or
dreamed of such a thing. Col.
Turner argued the adoption of the
resolution in a bi'ief speech.
He said we had just emerged from
a struggle which almost resulted in
the destruction of American liberty.
The dominant party were trying to
trample under foot every guarantee
thrown around the rights of our citi?
zens. "We must look closely to the
qualifications of men we put in high
places of trust; that Gen. Breckin?
ridge had been tried; he had occu?
pied the highest positions, civil and
military, and had proved himself a
statesman and patriot, and to-day he
stood pre-eminently above all others
in the affections of the people of Ken?
John Hampden permitted himself
to be thrust into prison sooner than
pay a few pennies' tax, demanded
under an unconstitutional edict. The
glorious spirit of the immortal Eng?
lishman is not dead. Congress will
find the land to bristle with John
Hampdens, who will oppose a mili?
tary despotism to be inaugurated in
the bosom of the republic.
