"We cannot understand what can prompt
a paper aspiring to respectability or influ
ence to publish distorted, exaggerated ac
counts of such occurrences as took place
on last Sabbath in Blount county. There
is not even temporary good accomplished
by such slanderous and unjust productions.
The account of the " Mobbing of Chris
tian Ministers by the Radical Fanatics of
Blount County," published in the Press
and Herald yesterday morning, will be
eagerly caught up and republished by the
Democratic press throughout the country,
and will do East Tennessee great harm.
What good can result to the Press and
Herald thereby? It published a highly
sensational article, which will naturally
attract great attention and win for the pa
per a temporary notoriety. But when the
facts as we publish them elsewhere become
known, our contemporary will lose much
more than it will gain. " The Press and
Herald man always was good at manufao
turing news," said the Chattanooga Times
of Sunday. The charge of the Times is
well sustained by the "manufactured"
article to which we refer. Wa say manu
factured, for if our information is correct,
the article was in its spirit and startling
features manufactured. We do not think
a fair-minded man in the city approves of
auch recklessness, and we think it is due
to this community, and especially to the
Press and Herald shouldmakefull repara
tion for the great injury it has inflicted.
THE UNIVERSITY AND " CITIZEN."
In an editorial published in our Friday's
iue, we took occasion to suggest to our
citizens that, inasmuch as the opposition
to the East Tennessee University to
which mnch of its present embarrassment
is due had its origin and main strength in
our own midst, among men who professed
to have at heart the prosperity and happi
ness of our city, it was eminently fit that
there should be a counter-movement here
and on the part of our own people, to man
ifest to the General Assembly and the peo
ple of the State, that such sentiments as
those advanced by " Citizen " met with no
nympatby or encouragement,
That editorial was written and published
entirely upon our own responsibility,
without consultation or advice, or the
knowledge of anyone. It is but fair that
we should make this statement, for if any
' unfortunate" results are to follow its
publication, we are responsible, and not
the University or its friends
Our sole object in giving publicity to our
views was the hope that it might result in
good to the cause w6 have at heart. We
still believe that result will follow ; for, in
our judgment, the best way to silence the
opposition to which we refer is to develop
its character and animus.
In answer to our article, the Whig of
yesterday morning publishes another card
from "Citizen," in which he exhibits
himself in a spirit which Is In rrtWfc Mt-.iv
mony with the judgment his first article
His intimation that he was ignorant of
the fact that such an enterprise as the pub
lishing of the Chrojucxe had even been
undertaken is not at all surprising to us.
Such illiberal souls might live in this com
munity for years and remain in total ig
norance of many an enterprise begun and
prosecuted for their benefit and improve
ment. But such thrusts shall not divert
us from our purpose.
" I have no quarrel to make with the East
Tennessee University as an institution of learn
ine, nor with its location, nor yet with tie indi
vidual who compose ita Faculty, (though I do
think they make a sorry team) for I suppose
they do the best they can under the circum
stanoos. My quarrel is with the general man
agement This I presume is with the Board of
The presumption and coneeit fof this
man in setting up his judgement against
the combined sagacity and ripe experience
of the Board of Trustees of the University,
can be best appreciated by our giving the
names of the many enlightened and up
right men who comprise it.

Is it not somewhat presumptuous in an
anonymous correspondent to speak sneer
ingly and disparagingly ;of a Faculty se
lected by such a 'Board ' of Trustees, or re
flect recklessly upon their management of
an-educational institution ? I It seems so to
us and will seem so to avery fair minded
honorable man. . . , .
We might say other .things pertinent to
this issue, but we do not propose to further
gratify "Citizen" by giving him the noto
riety he covets. If we did not fear that
through the efforts of himself and kindred
snlrits the University might be prejudiced
by their being held responsible for what we
alone have said, or might say, we snouiu
maXe some frtf uesotttionji a to the
proper way to treat such opposition.
But under all the circumstances we pro
nose to sav nothing further, but . leave
"Citizen" and his friends to pursue such
a policy as they think , best If in fact
they are friends of the University, as they
cliri o be, we suggest that tney relieve it
of its present embarrassed and crippled
condition, and at some more opportune
time seek throueh a chancre in the Board
of Trustees to effect the reforms they feel
to be so important. They certainly, can
not establish their friendship or benefit the
University by the policy they are pursu

The Press and Herald was full and run
ning over yesterday morning with its
" manufactured " sensational canard of the
Blount county affair. Now, when Repub
lican papers, in denouncing the outrages
of the Ku-Klux in Middle and West Ten
nessee, in any way vary their account
from the literal truth, the Democratic press
of the State are careful to make the most
of it, and to refer to it as evidence of deep
seated malice and hostility to the people of
the State. There is some excuse for uncer
tainty where the Ku-Klux secretly com
mit their outrages, or where they are per
petrated in counties inaccessible.but is there
any earthly excuse for the outrageous slan
der circulated by the Press and Herald f
Blount county is our adjoining county,
and i easily reached by rail, and there can
be no satisfactory explanation for the dis
graceful and malicious outrage our con-
rates I its slanders in different shapes
throughout the paper, and cites it as proof
of thi meanness of radicalism. We are of
the opinion that this deliberate attempt of
the Press and Herald to break down the
business and growing good feeling in
Blount county, is meaner and more repre
hensible than would have been such an
outrage as it says was conimitted. A paper
that will circulate such distorted and ma
licious articles, calculated to injure the
whole State; for the sake of gaining a little
notoriety or selling a few extra copies of
its papers, must be in desperate straits.
We think a few such articled ought to
atone1 for ever having joined the Union
League ; and we guess that if the truth
was known, this article was gotten up to
divert the attention from the "Startling
Developments" we published yesterday
morning. ; It ought to give our cotempo
rary as high a position in the Ku-Klux as
he had in the League. .
UnOSFEKDEST OSSES 07 0OO FELLOWS.
! On the 1st of July, 1869, there were 3,473
lodges. Independent Order of Odd Fellows,
under the jurisdiction of Grand Lodge of
the United States, with a membership of
268,608. For the year then ending the ad
missions amounted to 51,927.
There are several papers published now
in the interest of the Order, among which
are the Odd Fellows1 Companion, Odd HI
lowsJournal, The NewAgt, Western Odd
Fettou and the Heart and Hand, The
last named is a new enterprise, and is a

Odd fellow should .Tead. . J '
The following statement was made be
fore the National Medical Association, now
in session in Washington :
i " DISEASE OF ANIMALS.'
. "Dr. Thomas Antinsell, of the District
of Columbia, read a paper on veterinary
colleges, suggesting that attention should
be given to the health of domestic animals,
as 90,000,000 horses, mules and other ani
mals were sick and. dying throughout the
land. Referred to the Committee on Pub
lication." ! - :
General Bragg,- who has had control of
the New Orleans Water Works for some
years, has been compelled to surrender the
office to a gentleman of color. Such is one
of the consequences of his failure at Chat
tanooga. Having lost his water power,
the General can take "a little more grape,"
in the form of the juice thereof, and drink
that confusion to his toes which be couldn't
give them in '63..
Memorials are sent to Madrid from the
Northeastern pii of Spain, asking that
Espartero maybe made King. As he is
in his 79th year, his supporters evidently
mean to have an old King though of a
new race. He is a Manchegan, that is, a
native of La Mancha, the home of Don
Quixote, and to make him King would
be a most Quixote proceeding.
