ult Learning that there would be a grand
exhibition at the Female Academy,' I con
clnded to be a spectator ; so I went around
about 8 o'clock, r,n.
I found the room furnished aad Illumi
nated. The exercises opened with some of
the sweetest strains of Piano music by Prof.
Wheeler, who, ory rightfully took charge of
that department. Then followed a truly fa
cetious Charade and Tableau. Nine young
gentlemen were ibea Introduced upon the
rostrum, to contend with one another In
declamation, for fine prize " Album, which
the victor was to have the pleasure and hon
or of presenting to the lady of bis choice.
fn that oratorical battle the young combat
ants gave clear evidence of Demostheoean
attention and application to the art of sub
lime speaking. They displayed skill which
promises to them ultimate success nnder the
training of such an Instructor as the Rev.
Samuel P. Wright
Mr. Thomas F. Collin eras the fortunate
declalmcr. By his request, Jas. McKenzle,
Esq, presented the A lbum to a Miss Fraser.
He accompanied the presentation with a
short bat most beautifur and.appropriate
The proceeds of the occasion, which were
very respectable, as I was informed, are to be
aged for purchasing a library for the benefit
of Mr. Wright's Male School. Ce Is build
ing up a most excellent school for the edu
cation of young men and boys. And La
fayette is certainly a fine locality for 'such
an Institution. It Is in a healthy acd pro
ductive country, adorned with a beautiful
and attractive scenery. There are several
churches in the town and a virtuous and
Right there should be one of the first
colleges In the State of Kentucky.'
Prof. Wright, perhaps will do as much as
any man for the permanent establishment of
it Ills qualifications are amnio. His ener
gy and industry know no respite or languor.
And these are the great secret of success in
all enterprises. I wish him great success in
his laudable undertaking, and ask for him
the liberal patronage of all who love learn

trial. That js all that U necessasy to secure

Sib: I have wee ivtd communication
from a number of citizens ot Lee county, Va.
complaining of the action of bodies of men
in Tennessee, who nave entered the state ot
Virginia and forcibly seized citizens of tuis
State and carried them Into Tennessee and
impri:oned them for alleged offences commit
ted during tne war. Among otners are ea
peciallv mentioned the names of E. E. An
derson, of Scott county, and M. Levoson, of
Lee county, V a.
I respectfully request tuat steps rosy be
taken to prevent the lawless acts complained
of, and to restore to liberty persons who have
been unlawfully arrested in Virginia and
earned Into Tennessee.
I have received from yon requisitions for
the rendition of several persons accused of
committing crime in Tennessee during tne
war. some of the parties claim Uiat tbe acts
of which they are accused were lawful acts
of war, committed under recognized military
authority, aad that the peceasaxy witnesses
for tbe defence are men woo were engaged
in the same, or similar acts, and who would
consequently be liable to arrest and impris
onment If they were to go into Tennessee as
I have directed AO Investigation to be made
in each of the cases referred to, and will act
in accordanos with the facts whith may be
In cues vb&re men are indicted for crimes
committed during the war, I will cause their
arrest and rendition to the civil authorities
of Tennessee upon your requisition. But
when the acts charged were protr apt, ot
war, doae uLder recognised military aiillior-
ity, it would not pe proper lot me to send
citisen of Virginia to Tennessee for trial.
I hone the views I have eiuraijod will co

and also by Gen. Thomas, to whom I have
addreued letter similar iu purport to to is,

SELE DEFENSE, T. PROSCRIPTION.
Editors Gasitti i Having noticed seve
ral article In tbe city papers, relative to tbe
patronage extended to the Radical tradesmen
and mechanic in oar city, by tbe Conserva
tives, l Dope yon will give me space to urge
upon our friends the Importance of this mat
It a fact too well settled for controversy,
that a; least four-fifths of the white popula
tion of tbe Stale of Tennewee were-eitber in
the Confederate army, sympathized with the
rebellion, or are now opposed to the Radical
party. This large majority of our people.
composed of almost the entire wealth, intel
ligence ana reunement or the state, are as it
were "living oat a miserable existpnoe," de
prived of tbe greatest and holiest privilege
ever due an American eitizen, abused, tia-
duced and vnuned by set or interlopers, ad
venturers and blackguards, who Ihroiurh their
own villainy and degradAtion, have obtained
the possession of the Slate Government.
Immediately after the election of Mr. Lin
coln, tbe people of the State of Teunessee,
leeiing tbat their rights as citizens were no
longer safe in the hands of the United States
Government, and seeing that another Con-
reooracy was being loi med upon Ibeir border,
the institutions of which were mote in keep
ing with their own, very naturally almost
unanimously decided to east their lot with
tne latter. . wnetuer this course was riirbt
or wrong, it is not material now to discuss.
We transferred our allcziance from the Uni
ted States to tbe Confederate Slates of Amer
ica, and adopted the "Stars and bars" with
as much unanimity and enthusiasm as if it
bad been onr first choice, and with as much
good will and determination is if we bad
been the irautnirators of tbe same. We
were represented! noon every battle-field of
any importance during the contest, and the
neausionea recording tbe names and States
of the buried heroes, speak but too plainly
as to bow we performed onr duty to our
selves, onr country and -our God. The con
test wsged for four long and bloody years or
carnage ana destruction, fur wive and sis
ters and loved ones were Insulted and driven
from their homes. Tbe most horrid crimes
known to barbarism were heaped noon onr
defenseless women. Our oldest and most re
spectable citizens were incarcerated in dun
geons and left to die in filth, with no solace,
save tbat of having committed no crime,
Known to Mod or man. And our property
was destroyed by millions upon millions, in
their rear, Yet, notwithstanding all this and
elthough we had already borne more than
any other people uoder tbe wide canopy of
Heaven, when tbe war turned against us, and
when the appeal to arms bad decided that
we were weak and our enemies strong, we
submitted without a murmur. We returned
to our homes with our minds fully made np
to accept the issue in good faith, and with
an honest determination to work day and
night for a full and complete reconstruction
oi our once loved country.
n e nad been promised full pardon from
the commanding officers, to whom we sur
rendered, and well does the writer of this ar
tide remember bow the briny tears cbssed
tbeir way down many a sturdy war worn
face upon the morning of the "grand surren
der," not from grief at the compulsory capit
ulation, but in admiration Tor tbe hero who
had extended to them such honorable terms
of surrender. The United States Govern
ment at tbat moment stood foremost in the
hearts of those brave men, and each one of
them returned borne determined to fight its
battles in future; but let us inquire fur a mo
ment now tbey were met.
A tew bad men and degenerate sons of oar
illustrious State, who accompanied as to the
drill camp, and who lived upon the fat of the
land supplied by our noble women, but who
in disgrace, shame and degradation, had de
serted our ranks anon hearing the first sound
ot the Union artillery, bad preceded as to
oar homes, and by tbeir tztrm loyalty had
been placed in possession of tbe State Gov
ernment. Tbeir first act of cruelty was to
declare by an Act of the Oeneral Assembly
that we should be deprived of the elective
franchise, and though bard to bear, to this
we submitted without a murmur, knowing
as we did, tbat enough Tennessceans bad re
mained at borne and had not participated in
tbe rebellion to overbalance tbe deserters
from our own ranks, and the Northern vag
abonds who bad settled in our StAta. Then
came an amended "franchise law," which at
the time of its passage was thought to be
sumoient to retain in power these rebel de
serters and Interlopers, rearing, nowever.
tbat this was not strong enongh, and believ
ing tbat tbey could manage the "Ignorant
uigaer, " next came the negro suf rage Bill,
and now we are threatened with confisca
These, Messrs, Editors, are only few of1
tbe Insults that hav been heaped upon us.
and if I were to communicate half of them
it would more than fill your entire paper, and
I hav merely mentioned these to show how
we have been treated by these people, (if
tbey are entitled to tbat name) who are now
prating about persecution and 'proscription,
because we do not wish to extend our patron
age to them to tbe detriment of our friends.
It bS been stated by tbe Radical organs
of our city, that an organized effort is reing
made in regard to this matter, but I very
much fear that such is not the case, and fear
ing this, 1 have written this article, hoping
thereby, that my feeble efforts may, In some
degree, wake our friends to the importance
of tbis subject. Let us determine fully sod
enequivocally, come weal or woe, that we
will not bay a cents worth of goods from a
Radical merchant ; have our boots man a fac
tored by a Radical shoemaker, employ a Rad
ical mechanic, ride in a Uad.ial colored back,
shave in a Radical barber shop, asud our
children to a Radical teacher, attead a Radi
cal church, employ Radical servant, or in
fact have anything whatever to do or to say
to any one who is Radical or who refuses iu
equal right with himself In the Slate and
General Government. The mooey in this
country Is in the ba-:ds of the Cooservative
wen, and by all meaus let them keep it
amongst themselves; and if there is one
amount v who is so cowardly and so void
of muihucd as to be unwilling to enter luto

A TERRIBLE BEDFELLOW,
I looked at my neighbor with considerable
curiosity. 11 is foe indicated a man of not
only thirty years, A period at which men are
still young; but bis hair wss as white as
fresh-fallen snow. One seldom see even on
the bead of the oldest men, bair of such
mmacalate whiteness. 11 sat by my side
in a ear or tbe Ureat n estern Railroad, in
Canada, and was looking out of the window.
Suddenly turning hi head he caught me in
the art of staring at him a rudeness of
Which I was ashamed. I was about to say
words 01 x)logy, when he quietly remarked
"Don t mention It, sir ; I n nsed to It." .
The fi-ankness of this observation pleased
mc, and in a very little time we were con
versing on terms qf familiar acquaintanship;
and before long be told me the whole story,
"1 was a soldier tn toe army of India,
said be, and as is often tbe case with the sol
diers, I was a little too fond of liquor. One
day I got drunk and was shut up in the black-
bole for it. . I slumped down upon tbe floor
of tbe dungeon, and I Was just dropping off
to sleep, when l tell a cold, slimy- shape
crawling across my right band as it lay
stretched out before my bead on the floor.
I knew at once what It was snake I Or
course my first impulse was to draw away
my hand; but knowing tbat if I did so the
poisonous reptile would probably strike its
fangs into me, I lay siilL with my heart belt
ing in my breast like trip hamme. Of
course my fright sobered me Instantly. I
realized all my peril in iu fullest extent. O,
bow 1 lamented the hour that I touched li
quor I (n every gla of liquor they say
there is a serpent; but it does not come in
tbe shape it came to me. With a slow un
dulating motion . the reptile dragged its car
cass across my tact, inch by inch, and crept
down oyer my breast and thrust it bead in
side my jacket. As I felt the hideous scra
ping of the slimy body over my cbeeks it
was only by the most tremendous effort tbat
succeeded in restraining myself from yell.
ing loudly with mingled terror and disgust.
At last I frit the tail wriggling down to
wards my chin ; but imagine what I felt at

WHAT WILL TQEI DO WITH THEM.
It will be recollected what an excitement
was produced a few year before the war by
the appearance of a work called the " Im
pending crisis,'1 written by one 11 in toe Row
an Helper. It was essentially abolition, coun
seling even tbe Insurrection of the then slaves
and the murder ot their then master. Its
spirit was so fiendish as to be Indulged as
sweet morsel by the Black Republican party.
It received the indorsement of nearly all df
the member of Congress belongipg to that
political organization. It was circulated as
a campaign document by Iu National Exec
utive Com ml tie. John Sherman wo defeat
ed for the Speakership of the national House
of Representatives, a few of what was called
the North American declining to rot for
the. endorsers of such atrocious sentiments.
Helper again appears as an author. We learn
from the Cincinnati Cfcinmrrriai, that tt bos
written another book, tyojoque ; a Question
for a Continent," he calls It. U favors now
the expulaioo or extermination of all blacks,
rnulalloee and non-white from the United
Suites. Tbe dedication reads as follows :
"To tb most enlivened and progressive
portion of tbe people of the New World, who
have the for reaching foresight, and the man
ly patriotism to determine irrevocably, by
tbeir vote in I8U8-73, sooner or later, that
after the 4th of July, 1876, (or at the very
furthest, after the 1st of January, 1900,) no
slave, nor would be slave; no negro nor mu
latto; no Chinaman nor unaative Indian ; no
black nor bi -colored individual of whatever
name or nationality, shall ever again find
dumifil anywhere within the boundaries of
tbe United State of America."
He assert that the " best and only true
remedy for the present and prospective
troubles now brewing in the United Suttee n
is "an absolute and eternal Reparation of the
Hi plan, the Cbmmtrcivl truly say, Is al
most grand In III simplicity and magnificent
disregard of all possible pr contingent diffi
culties or obstacle. He propose merely to

like the Indian and all other effete and din

Having thus prescribed the abolition of tbe
negroes as a national necessity, II r. Holper
proceeds to show, from tb writings of Agas

and a whole host of anthropologists, that the
doomed too is inferior, of a separate crea
tion, and as nearly related to the ape a tbe
man ; and hence-ba no "right which w bite
men are bound to respect;" and these he
backs up with the advice given by Mr, Lin
coln iu 1862, "to a 'deputation of beggarly
negroes, w ho had wailed upon him in refer-
