ANDREW JOHNSON'S MASS MKETINO.
The Grand Democratic Mass Meeting at
Bogersvlllo on Thursday Inst, for which
such prodigious efforts were made, from
the rural journals of tipper East Tennessee
to the mighty oryan of this place, with its
immense (V) circulation and great prestige
from the 4th of Jul v " farce,' was, in fact,
a decided fizzle. His Accldency, the great
expounder of " My Policy," spoke to a
crowd of about two hundred, who, as our
lniorinani writes us, inudo tne least appre
ciative audience lie over saw, When tho
great hero of tlio day, Andrew Johnson,
was introduced, not tin exclamation of unv
Kinu was made.
Johnson spoke to tlio little crowd over
two hours and a half. His theme wa. first.
aim last, The constitution " and "Jiv
Policy." His denunciation of Congress
was intended to be very severe, but was, in
fact, very feeble, ami hardly appreciated.
Tlie people of Tennessee have such a mor
tifying realization of the corruption, Imbe
cility and general worthlossucss of their
present General Assembly that tho denun
ciation of Congress, or any other delibera
tive body loses all Its force.
The ex-President said it was charged
that he was "struck down," but if lie was,
it was not until lie Had gone the
rounds" "from the lowest to the high
est olllce." "As 1 am down," said be. "I
can get no lower and my only alternative
is, to rise again. He charged "that the
Northern clergy had done more to bring
about our recent war, and discord among
our people, than any other class existing.'1
lie said he had pardoned more men than
any king or potentate, and he thanked
God first that lie had had the inclination
to do so, and next, that he had the power.
nils declaration seemed to his hearers not
to bo consistent with tho blood and thun
der promises made during the war, that
traitors must tako back seats and be pun
ished and treason be made odious.
As the ex-President found the latter decla
ration did notaid him much in West and
.Middle Tennessee last tall while canvass
ing for tlio Senate, ho is suppose. I to have
referred to this pardoning business to con-
ciliatc them and induce them to foryivc
mm lor Ills nasty promises.
His abuse of President Grant was as in
decent as it was ridiculous, and our inform
ant assures us that tho decent pait of the
crowd expressed their disgust with tho
bad taste manifested id tills part f his
speech. A great ileal of bad whisky was
consumed, and our informant says lie saw
more druuuen men that day than no saw
for live years.
Johnson denounced tho third party
niovomcnt, and said there could bo but two
parties jjenwerutut anil itepiiDiiean. me
posters first put up for this meeting
rr;nl "flr.Miid nomncrotto Meolimr."
All old line Whig, not liking the Demo
cratic oart. pasted one of the bills on a
board, and hired a colored man to carry it
iboitttowu. With an old cow uell, tho
poster was carried about, and everybody's
attention was called to it. Democracy
finally compromised, and a new lot were
printed, which read, "Grand Democratic,
Conservative Moss Meeting." Johnson's
denouncement of the third party, and de
claration that the party in East Tennessee
marched hand in hand with tne jjemo-i-ratic
party of the North, had reference to
this sensitiveness of .the old lino Whigs.
SENAT0E SCHURZ ON THE WAR. ,
At a largo and enthusiastic meeting of
Germans, held in New York, on last Wed
nesday night, Senator Carl tfchurz made
a speech, which we think so forcibly and
eloquently depicts tlie characters tif the
combatants, and the issue Involved In this
struggle between Franco and Prussia, that

The J'rcxn and Herald, of tills city, last
winter, published as editorials a series of
articles, written ov a prominent icgai gen
tleman of Knoxville, favoring a provision
in the present Constitution of the Ktato
taking wi the people the rlfjht to select
their own Jtul(es. As these articles were
published as editorials, the J'retn and Jfer
aid of course solemnly endorsed them.
When the present dangerous Criminal
Court Act which, in effect, taken from the
people, the riyht of a fair ami impartial
trial by jury was before the Assembly, the
same paper gave It an unqualified endorse
ment In tho following strong language :
" It is a wine Ktep, and we are only surpris
ed that t7t a Court has not been establish
ed before." The J'rew and Jferald, there
fore, favors not only taking from the people
the riyht Ut vhootsc their Judyc, but also
the right of an impartial trial by Jury.
Tills is the "people's organ," advocating
the "people's candidates for judges."
What ilo the people of Ea-t Tennessee

Will they support tho candidates of such

THE SITUATION IN EUROPE.
Tho latest advices from London give uh
information concerning the position of tint
armies, from which It is easy to seo where
the first buttles of tho war will be fought.
The French army Is now posted at Thion
vllle, .Metz, Nancy and Strasburg, with
the extreme right wing at Helfortand the
reserve at Chalons, Har. Manic, llv refer
ring to tno map tno reader will at once sec
that such a disposition of the forces can In
dicate but one plan of campaign; namely:
An aggressive movement, either in tho di
rection of Maycnce or Coblentz. If, there
fore, the advices giving us this location of
the French army are correct, and no mate
rial change Is made in their disposition,
we may look for the flrstbattlo somewhere
in lthlnish Uavarla or Hhlnlsh Prussia.
and. probably, Hilar the lthine.
ah our tiispatcics, whether lrom Iferlin
or Paris, are colored, and the reader must
not rely rininllcltlv upon Uielr contents.
One dispatch slates that tho Prussian army
lias lauen Hack to Coblentz and Maycnce
with headquarters of the army at krenz
liach, eight miles from Iflngen. By refer
ence to the map It will bo seen thatKrenz-
nucii is on the left bank ot the Hhlne, and
In advance of tho line connecting Coblentz
Maycnce. Such ti position for lieadmiar-
ters is improbable, and wo mention it only
to snow tne necessity lor accepting with
caution tho statements of tlio press agents.
Napoleon left Paris yesterday for the
front. His immediate advisor and real
supporter is Marshal McMahon, command
ing the army of the lthine.
His army is composed of the first, fifth
ami seventh ariny corps. The army of
Moselle, composed of the second, third
and fourth corps, will bo commanded by
Marshal Ha.aiuc. Tlio reserve corps, lit
Chalons, is commanded by CtiPiobert.
General do Follly commands, the corps at
ltctch, connecting the army of Moselle
and the army of tho lthine.
Concerning the strength of tho Prussians
at Coblentz and Mavence, we know but
little. Some fifteen tfay-f have now cl.-'ps-ed
since war was first deemed probable,
and during this time wo know neither
army has been idle. Wo know enough of
tho organization and character of thu Piu
sian War Administration to know that
she has now in tho field a very largo and
well equipped army. If, in all respects, tlio
force is not as largo or as well prepared as
the French army, It has the advantage for
tlie present of being on the defensive, and
strengthened by the enthusiasm and in
centives which always pertain to soldiers
defending their homes and friends from
Wo may expect during this week, and
perhaps early in tho week, tho opening
battle. Napoleon feels confident of his
present advantage, and we shall bo sur
prised if he does not improve it. It is not
at all Improbable but that the first engage
ments will bo favorable to France. It Is a
characteristic of tho Frehch soldier that
the first fight is his best. The advices from
Prussia are not very full, and wo may yet
find her better prepared than France and

A eorresponden of tho Knox vllle (Ten

that the ex-President, Johnson, Is about to

these anticipations should not be realized,
ami ex-Prt'siilcnt Johnson should find busi
ness slack at Greeneville, wt can assure
him that there is a very gotxl oH!iiing for
a really honest grocer in London. If lie
