An Historical House in Knoxville.
A Knoxville (Tennessee) corres?
pondent of tho Cincinnati Gazette,
says tho house of Col. Armstrong,
near that city, is historical. During
a part'of tho siego of Knoxville, it
was occupied by rebel sharp-shoot?
ers, and only escaped being battered
down, because Barnside had but few
cannon balls or shells. Neverthe?
less, ono of tho latter, a twenty
pounder, crashed through thc walls,
and several smaller ones marked it
in different places. Tho side next
Fort Sanders is dented and flecked
and shotted with hundreds of bullet
marks. Several masked balls may bo
seen partially imbedded in tho win?
dow sills and frames. lu the parlor
stands a piano, exactly where it stood
during the fight. Two balls came
through the windows and lodged in
the wood of tho instrument, where
they are yet visible. Tho toues of
the piano aro still as beautiful as
though tho casing did not contain
those grim evidences of a day when
no music was beard savo that awful
kind 'vhich accompanies upon the
field of battlo the messengers of
dea(b. In tho tower there is a more
frightful truco of the fray.
Tho tower is perhaps six feet
square, with threo long and very
narrow windows. Among tho ene?
mies sharp-shooters, when they hold
the house, was a young South Caro?
linian, who, with several others,
occupied tho tower. Peeping from
one of tho windows, a bullet, which
must have como three-quarters of a
mile, crashed into his brain and
passed entirely through bia bead.
Tho blood poured ont iu two san?
guinary streams, as bia comrades
dragged him below; and, from tho
spot where ho fell to the very bottom
of tho stairs, tho two streams, now
running parallel, now momentarily,
coinciding, and nuon crossing each
other, are distinctly visible. Tho
round bolo in tho glass through
which tho bullet penetratod is also
seen. With great taste, Col. Arm?
strong has preserved, as far as pos?
sible, tho traces of the conflict about
his house. It is true, several vigo?
rous efforts have boon made to wash
away tho blood, but it had been too
thoroughly soaked into tho wood
beforo Gol. Armstrong's family re?
turned to tho residence; and now it
will remain thero as long as tho man
siou endures, a fearful reminder of
tho consequences of war.

J. S. MCMAHON, City Cle
Partisan Abtue of Candidate!.
The personal abuse which party
organs are in the habit of heaping
upon the candidates to whom they
are opposed, has become one of the
greatest scandals in the mode of con?
ducting our elections for the Presi?
dency. It is fairly to be presumed
that any citizen nominated for the
li i ghost national ofilco, by any con?
siderable portion of tho American
people, must be at least of su flic i cn fly |
good repute in tho country to be en?
titled, when he enters the political
tournament, to bo treated with com?
mon courtesy. Yet, we scarcely see
the Presidential oanvass fairly opened
before imputations of drunkenness
and insanity aro bandied about as
freely as if the contest wero a prize
fight, and the journalists were roughs
and rowdies backing up their respect?
ive champions. This is an old and,
we fear, chronic disease of our poli?
tical controversies. There has
scarcely ever been a President of thc I
United States, or a candidate for that1
office, who failed to become the tar?
get of tho most disgraceful abuse and
defamation. Even Washington was
assailed with a bitterness which ren?
dered public life a burthen to him
that be was glad to lay down, and
would have cheerfully relinquished
boforo his term of office oxpired, but |
for a senso of duty to his couutry.
Jefferson, it is well-known, was not
only libeled in tho most indecent
manner by tho press, but in New
England tho Puritan pulpit opened
its batteries upon him. Jackson
was denounced ns a murderer and
ndultcror, and Harrison ns an old
granny and coward. It is a striking
illustration of tho impolicy as well as
injustice of such a mode of conduct?
ing a Presidential canvass, that the |
candidates who have been most
abused and vilified by tho party I
hacks and the political press have j
been generally successful, and, as in
tho cases of Jefferson, Jackson and
Harrison, attained a popularity
which compelled their detractors to
blush fer tho impotent malice which
sought to injuro them.
Surely the great political principles
at issue between tho two parties can
bo discussed and tho qualifications of
their respective candidates for high
oftico compared, without dragging
their porsoual character and habits
into the arena. What can bo more
humiliating to any man, who has
true pride of country, than to seo its
selec t men for tho highest offices held
np before t he world as drunkards and
lunatic:-? The political intemperance
and madness which lead to such a
modo of conducting popular elections I
aro ominous of as great calamities to
the eonutry, as any which it would
be likely to suffer, even if all tho
personal accusations against the can?
didates wero true. Tho farewell ad?
dress of Washington warned us |
against party spirit, as the rock on
which all former republics had been
shipwrecked; and it is impossiblo to
witness its violence, especially in
Presidential elections, without feel?
ing painfully impressed with tho |
necessity of tho admonition.
NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE.-There is I
nothing so marvellous but what it
may ho reached by the wondrous
power of modern skill and science.
It is absurd to say anything is im?
possible in these extraordinary days.
What wo cali impossiblo ono day
becomes a common fact the next,
and what wo laugh at as the unat?
tainable in 18G7 is placed within our
grasp iu 18?S. We havo long amused
ourselves over tho idea of an India j
rubber stage or car to carry passen?
gers, and lo! an India rubber car?
riage (a vehiclo composed of one
solid piece of rubber, first heated
into a flexible mass liko dough, then
moulded into shape,) is tho latest |
novelty manufactured at Bridgeport,
Conn., and sent to this city. Tho]
changes of temperature havo no ef?
fect upon it; a beautiful polish and
coloring can bo bestowed upon it;
wood is not so tough or strong ns it
is, nud it can bo manufactured at
less cost than an ordinary carriage.
It is about ouo-eighth of an inch
in thickness, and if mado less hard
and moro flexible, we shall havo at
onco a full realization of nil our
ludicrous but popular notions about a
stage that can bo stretched to accom?
modate any numbor of travelers, a
car that will hold '"just ono more,"
no matter how full, on all occasions.
Such a car would bo tho very para?
dise of conductors.

DISCOVERY OF A CHEST OF MONEY.
A letter received by a gentleman of
Cairo, from Oxford, Miss..'states that
a few days ago Sheriff W. S. McKee,
on returning homo from an adjoining
County, stopped to bathe in the Tal?
lahatchie River. His feet touched
something smooth on the bottom
several times; curiosity at'dength led
him to examine closely, when he
found a small iron chest. Procuring
assistance, ho took it to Oxford,
broke it open, and found $3,000 in
silver, $2,800 in gold, $1,200 Mexican
dollars, and $4,000 in Confederate
money. There were no papers in tho
chest to show its ownership.
TnE WAY IT WORKS.-Every late
Southern "rebel," who is not in love
with the views of our radical friends,
is pronounced by radical journalists
n traitor, and carefully disfranchised.
Some 1,500 of tho same "rebels,"
however, who consented to accept
radicalism, (including three Ander?
son villo jailors,) have just been
purged of all political disabilities by
Congress, and they are denominated
as "amongst tho most loyal patriots
in tho land." Party fanaticism, as a
general thing, does not clarify the
judgment any moro than it sweetens

DEMOCRATIC VS. REPUBLICAN NOMI?
NATIONS.-Somo of tho partizan jour?

sary to abuse the candidates of their
opponents. Tho New York Commer?
cial (Republican) thiuks differently,
and says: "Governor Seymour is not
to bo beaten hy being called a cop?
perhead, or Frank Blair to bo dis?
tanced in tho race because he is
called a revolutionist. Bidicule Sey?

may, he is tho most popular man in

Sir David Brewster has published
a description of tho manner in which
a stack of hay was struck by light?
ning iu Forforshire. The stack was
on lire, but was extiuguishod beforo
it was consumed. On examining tho
stack, a circular passage was observed
which extended to the bottom, and
terminated in a bole in the ground.
In the hole was found a foreign sub?
stance which proved to bo silex, ob?
viously formed by tho fusion of tho
silex contained in the outer coating
of tho hay. It had a greenish tinge,
aud contained burnt portions of hay.
