KNOXVILLE, TENN., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER IG, 1870.
Tho election Is now over, mid (ho news
papers mny turn thoir nttentlon to some
thing else thnn nicro partisan polities. In
the short space of time since we com
menced the publication of the dally and
weekly Cimoxici.i:, we have received
many flattering testimonials) of public
favor. Wo have labored with all the zeal
.mil ability wo possessed against obstacles
with which a paper in its infancy has to
ont-nd, and have reason to believe that
our labors have beon apprecialed. From a
mere " bantling," as our neighbors up tho
way called us, our journal has grown In
public favor and has become to bo consid
ered as a permanent enterprise. AYe have
always endeavored, as best the means at
our command would permit, lo furnish our
readers with tho latest news from all parts
of the country, and to give them original
mid selected matter on all subjects of gen
eral interest. This we expect to continue.
If we arc liberally supported, wo promise
to make tho Ciikonicm: the best newspa
per that has ever been published in East
Tennessee, and to stand side by sldo in this
respect with our more pretentious contem
poraries at Nashville and other Southern
cities. Wo have no tnsto for cheap litem
lure, and will charge you for our paper
-such n price as wo 'can live at without
losing money. "We arc persuaded that our
people prefer to pay two dollars per annum
for n. weekly paper, and get a live journal,
than to get a paper more dead than living
for a less price. Tilts is, then, tho price of
the Wkeki.y Chkoxicmj to such siib?eri
ucrs, and wo have yet to hear in the seven
months slnco we commenced its publica
tion ft k'moIg Individual complain (hat
the price is (oo high.
We intend to bend our whole energy to
make this paper just such a journal as the
people desire. During the coming winter,
no political canvass being on hand, wo in
tend to make our Weekly a family jntjier,
tilling it witli such matter as will prove of
interest to all sexes and ages. Wo will pay
special attention to our Agricultural De
partment, and will have something of in
terest In every number for tho farmer. Wo
will endeavor lo have something in each
number to interest the mechanic and labor
ing man. Wo will try to interest tho mer
chant and business man, by giving atten
tion to tho correctness of our commercial
and market rrports. In short, we will en
deavor to lill our columns in such a way
as to have something of interest for every
Wo will attempt, and intend to succeed,
in making our Dally tho very best news
paper in the State. Wo will give, at all
times, by our press and special dispatches,
the latest news from all parts of tho world,
and in this respect we will not be surpass
ed by any paper in East Tennessee.
Wo call upon our triends, and the public
generally, to sustain us, and we promise
on our part to mako a paper worthy of pub
lic patronage. Knoxvillo and Ea-t Ten
nessee need such a paper, and we propose
that the CimoNici.i: shall meet tho de
mand for it.
VOLUNTEER CENSUS TAKERS.
Had tho Government been advised in
time, it might have saved considerably in
taking a portion of the census. Wo have
no doubt our kind friends of tho Democrat
ic Executive- Committee would have been
glad to furnish, without charge, purely as a
luborof love, full statistics of all the color
i 1 1 iboror between Wills Valley and tho
site of the proposed Knoxvillo Custom
House, Including their number, age, color
of Hair and eyes, habits of industry or
othtrwlse, kind of tools in their hands,
length of time for which they wore em
ployed, itif!, &c.
The statistics would bo very full, and very
foMbly set out ; and us to truth, would be
,a.t r.s rollable ne the avorsgo of Demo
cratic secret circulars issued a few hours
lit fuio election.
fin: JYcm and Herald of yesterday says
that large numbers of " deluded negroes"
voted on Tuesday without right or color of
law, as was evident lo all right-thinking
men. Tills is a direct implication of tho
honesty of the judges, who assisted in hold
ing our elections. If they allowed men to
vu.o without " right or color of law," they
should be prosecuted and punished, if
they violated tho oaths administered to
Hum before cntorlng upon thoir duties,
they are unworthy lobe trusted. Hut they
did not. They are honest men, belonging
to both political parties. Tlioy are incapa
ble of committing an offense so grave in
Its nature, and so disastrous in its results.

THE NEXT PRESIDENCY.
Already tho newspapers throughout tho
country, and especially the leading East
ern! paper", are rife with speculations as
to the next Presidency. It has been pretty
generally conceded that Cien. Grant wiil
bo a candidate for re-election. The Now
York Herald, a leading Demooratic papor,
lias the following frank admission of his
groat strength :
Tho llciublican candidate for 1872 Is General
Grant, and there is no danger in V case of nnv
oonteting Republican aspirant, lis utamU to
day the nccoptod champion of his party againt
all corners, and ho stand" upon tho ncceptablo
platform of a careful. money-wing, retrench
ing, tax-reducing and debt-paying administra
tion. Afalnit liim, from the facts of the into
election before in, the Democracy In 1872 will
have but'a Hm elinnco of 9ueoc!.
Wo endorse what the Herald iys of
President Grant. If ho goes on, as he cer
tainly will, saving the people's money, re
trenching, reforming, reducing taxes and
paying the public debt, the good sense of
the American people will point him out as
the man for the Presidency for another
Up n tho other hand, whether conceded
or i .it might as well be, that Tammany
intisds to furnish tho' next Democratic
candidate for tho Presidency, and their
man is John T. Hoffman. All other as
pirants may as well make up their minds
at once to either decline or be defeated be
fore a convention. Tammany has become
a lAnver in the laud, .and in the fnturo will
not only eay to control New York Dem
ocracy, but will extend its operations to
tho whole country. In carrying out their
plans they do not rely on ordinary mans,
but have at their command a never falling
argument, and that is money. This they
will use without stint. Tho leaders are
tho mo-t corrupt, unscrupulous, unprinci
pled villains upon the face of tho earth, and
are never restrained by what men call con
science. The "Tammany Ring," and tho
'Erie Ring" combined, presents an organ
ization with illimitable menus, ami unlim
ited con uption. Them two have formed
a coalition for the purpose of controlling
the country through tho Democratic par
ty, and they intend to give the country
the next President. If tho Democratic
party succeeds they will do it.
The Sachems of Tammany have grown
immensely wealthy, and think nothing of
spending a lound million to carry a State
election. Ry tho cohesive power of public
plunder, they are held together, and al
though the people of Now York know
they aro being fleeced constantly, they are
perfectly impotent in tho hands of the
powerful organization. The Sachems may
say to them, we will tax your property just
as high as wo please, and will expend the
funds to our own liking, perfectly oblivious
as to what you may think or say. They
do "-ay it. While their expenditures are
enormous, they never publish how they
are made, knowing that they can retain
power through the corrupt use of money,
regardless of what honest men may think
This, fellow-citizens, is tho organization
that intends to furnish your next Presi
dent. Mark what we say. Time will
prove the correctness of our predictlqns.
Tammany Democracy, led by a few un
principled, corrupt politicians, having no
regard for honesty, perfectly oblivious as
to the good or ill will of the honest people,
relying upon the corrupt use of money,
which is wrung from tho people of New
York in tho shape of high taxes, they in
tend to control this whole country. These
men make no pretoiisionslo honesty. They
do not desire to lie considered honest. Jn
everything that is ennobling In man's na
ture, their supuriors aro to bo found in the
State Penitentiary. Are they tho men to
control our public allah's'.' Read and re
