From the East and from tho West ; from
tho North mid from tho distant South, on
clectrio wings, comes tho glad tidings that
through a free, untrammclcd ballot, Gen.
Grant lias been chosen as President for
four moro years.
And now four millions of voices sound
aloud n song of praiso and thanksgiving
for iv country delivered from tho dangers
that would havo threatened it had
tho unnatural and corrupt coalition con
cocted at Cincinnati and Baltimore suc
ceeded. Tho election of Grant and Wilson is an
evidence of tho intelligence and good sense
of tho American people, far moro signifi
cant than expressed in any other Presiden
tial election. Upon its face tho Greeley
movement was calculated to catch voters.
It proposed to be a movement for reform,
whereas, in fact, it was astruggleforspoils.
It professed to be in tho interest of recon
ciliation and for a more fraternal union
of the sections, whereas its promoters, in
Tennessee, at least havo been in
tolerant and proscriptivo to a shameful
degree. "While professing to have formed
a new party upon principle, they abandon
ed almost all discussions of principles in
tho canvass and hurled at tho President
tho vilest slanders over heaped upon a can
didate. Both Gen. Grant and Senator "Wil
son have characters abo vo reproach. They
havebecnin positions of trustbuttheirper
sonal integrity has never been successfully
assailed. They have been faithful pnblic
servants. This tho people knew and to
answer their calumniators they have by
an overwhelming vote placed them in
tho highest and most honorable ofllces in
the gift of tho people.
Before the intelligent world, the Ameri
can people have vindicated Gen. Grant,
and the greatest soldier and most slander
ed President goes into his second term
completely and fully acquitted.
Tub war made upon Johnson because of
his Cniou record, and tho proscription of
such men as Blizard, Sevier, Gaut and

the Government during the war, is not

record. Union men feel if their friends aro
to be proscribed because of their loyalty,
that they will no longer vote for
the men persecuting them simply
because they are " regular nominees."
This grand old hero of a hundred cam
paigns was present on the stand last night

THE VICTORY COMPLETE.
Tho election yesterday resulted in sweeping
lctorlc3 for tbo Kopubllcan party in nbout thir
ty of the thirty-scvcn.Statos of the Union. Af
ter twclvo years of unintcruptcd ascendancy in
tbo Nation, it strides Into another four years
oaso of power with tho most complete triumph
that ever perched upon its banners. Tho re
turns given in tho Chronicle this morning
road like the overwhelming victories attending
a now party riding into power upon tho wavo
of a great popular revolution.
Tho coalition that four months ago cmlting-
ly boasted of sweeping tho ltcpublic with a
grand "tidal wave" comes out of this contest
with every ono of the old froo States wrested
from iU control. Massachusetts repudiates
Banks and Sumner; Illinois disowns Trumbull,
Palmer and Whito and tho Empiro Stato with
a grand outburst of patriotic furor robukes
Greeley and Fcnton. Never in our politial his
tory has a party bcc so utterly and overwhelm
ingly overthrown and repudiated. Tennessee has
passcdlthrough tho storm of fiereo contention
and comes out almost if not fully redeemed
from tho unworthy bonds of tho Socesh Democ
racy. At this writing, 2 A. sr., tho indications
point to tho olection of our noble standard bearer
lloraco Maynard. This glorious victory is not
yet assured but seems Tory probable as it is
conceded in private dispatches by the chairman
of tho Cheatham Stato Committee, tho ed
itor of tho Nashville Union and American. So
far as our returns show Maynard leads both
of his competitors. lie loads Johnson over 2,-
000 and Cheatham by nbont 0,000. Cheatham
will bo second if not first in tho race and the
ex-President last though not by any means
least, as his rcrnarkablo canvass, single-handed
and alone shows.
Tho "Uattering l'am"' District, mapped out
to defeat Maynard, will probably bo represent
cd by Thornburgh. Ills majority in this coun
ty as far as hoard from is 1,103. It will prob
ably reach 1,800. Threo districts of Jefferson
county give him SCO majority. Upon this basis
ids majority this sido of tho mountains will bo
between 4,500 and G.O0O. it may exceed tho lat
ter estimate. Wo consider his election very
nearly if not absolutely certain.
Km xvillc goes Republican by about 200 ma

August in Knox county, and place lit among

NASltvn.LK, Oct. 30, 1872.
To tho Editor of the Banner:
Mv attention has been called to a lone
letter published in tho Memphis Appeal
and republished in tho Union and Ameri
can, by Governor Harris, reviewing tho
discussion between him and moat Mur-
freesboro'. Tho novelty of this communi
cation attracted my attention. It struck
mo that.ns thopanersatMurfrcesboro' had
said all they could conscientiously for tho
Uovernor, being strongly on ins siue, nun
the Union and Amrrican hnd championed
his cause, besides publishing two or thrco
lengthy communications from Murfrees
boro', doing tho best they could for him,
nud especially as ho had tho conclusion in
tho debate, It was rather overdoing thu
tuing tlie tiling to interview nimsen, anu
in a formal letter after ho had time to
think, como to his own rescue by review
ing tlie entire debate.
But upon a careful reading of his review
I find the only point in the discussion
which created any sensation Is admitted as
stated by me. Whatever Governor Har
ris' friends may have said about the facts
as they were published now there can bo
no controversy about mem.
It is now settled that Governor Harris
did openly and publicly, in a speech charge
tliat Mr. Jolinson, wnue Military uover
nor of Tennessee, take from the people,
without duo process of law, about !?20,000,
and that he charged this to be a great
crime, and subversive of tho dearest con
it is now settled taut it was truiuiuuy
charced in renlv that he. the accuser, had.
as civil Governor, taken out of the Bank
of Tennessee, without duo process of law,
of tlie sacred school fund, secured in terms
by the Constitution to the children of the
Stato for ever, and which no enactment
could touch, $1,550,703.
It is now sottlsJ that tlie Governor, us
civil Governor, without duo process ot law
not only took this large sum from tho
Bauk of Tennessee, but, by force, ho did
take from the Planters' Bank, $500,000,nnd
that he did, as civil Uovernor, by iorce,
take from the Union Bank of Tennessee,
and, of course, without duo process of law,
Tliese tilings, as lirst denied, are now
settled. And tlie deiensc is tnat u was ta
ken to feed tho army.
Now it turns out that a few mouths af
ter this, and when Mr. Johnson became
Military uovernor, lie Had troops wnicn
he hud'to feed, and was without money.
He was with a conquering army aud in a
captured city, and these same two bauks
were still here.
Mr. Johnson went down to these two
banks and told them that ho had troops to
feed and had no money, and asueu tnem it
tucv could lend him some money. Alter
considering tlio securities, Mr. jonnson
borrowed irom each ot said banus t?u,uuu,
and gave tho individual promissory notes
of "Andrew Johnson" with personal secu
rity every dollar ot which he aiterwurd
paid, with interest, in legal tenders.
jJehoid tue accuser and tno accused.
Governor Harris says in his review that
the- transactions with the Bank of Tennes
see were fair, because he turned over bonds
under an act ot the Legislature.
The convening of tho Legislature, and
the Governor's message, and the act itself,
lix beyond doubt the responsibility.
Jiouds on a contemplated rebellion
against the United States, in consideration
for the sacred school fund, is worse than a
forced note on a woodpecker at Jare, in
payment ot spiritual dues.

SAVING IN THE PUBLIC PRINTING.
Last Sundav morning, under tho abovo
caption, wo afluded to the saving to tho
State in the matter of public printing, tlio
result of Col. Baxter's ventilation and
Senator Gibson's vicilauce in the Lecisla
ture. We stated in that editorial that the
Nashville papers had not deigned to
notice tho contract with Wheeler, Mar
shall & Bruce, not being willing to let
their readers know to what extent they,
the public printers, nave been overcharg
ing tlie tax payers.
Tho Banner of Tuesday says wo misrep'
resented tlio facts. Upon investigation wo
find that the Banner did notice tlio contract
under the following circumstances, as wo
are reliably informed : When tho com-
misioners made tho award to Wheeler,
Marshal & Bruce, tho reporters of the two
Nashville papers were nt the Capitol in the
afternoon, as is their daily custom, and tho
item was given them. On their rounds
the next day it was remarked by ono of
the htatc oiiiciais, that tho item had been
overlooked. Tlio Banner reporter made
some excuse and promised to insert tho
ionowing day, which, tor some reason
was not done. Ono ofthe commission'
ers who made the award then wrote a
notice of it, aud took it to the
Banner cfllce, where he handed it in as
an advertisement, paying for its insertion.
Next morning a short notlco of the award
appeared, and ono of the proprietors re
turned the money handed in by the State
officer with an apology for not Inserting
The Banner adds :
It is but fair to say that'thc Stato, in ordering
a thousand copies of tho book, instead of six
hundred as heretofore, cheapens tho prico per
volume tho composition on ono thousand or
ten thoumnd copiej costing no moro than for
uvo nunureu. u was optional witn tlio 1'nnters
to tho State to tako tho contract at tho bid which
tho Stato accepted, but thoy wero not willing to
uo worK ai moiO ngurci.
That Is a sorry plea, as they must know
that Wheeler, Marshal fc Bruce havo tho
volume we referred toUth Helskelllstereo-
tvped, which adds nbout 85 per cent, to
me cost, so tnat tho price could not be
cheapened a great deal. Any man can see
innt uio diiierencc should not be as much
as or moro than half.
The assertion that it was optional wit"
tlie public printers to take tho work at th
figures, is not in accordance with the facts
as we understand them, nnd hnvo them
from tiood authority. Tho law irlves au
thority to the Commissioner to let out the
work aud provides that if thopubl c print
ers are tn low as the lowest in their bid,
they aro to have the preference. Our In
formation Is that Roberts 6c Purvis put in
a bid and so did the Union and American
Company, but none was put in by Jones,
Purvis A: Co., the publlo printers. So it
could not have been optional, unless Jones,
Purvis it Co. hud put in a bid at 75 per
volume, the price bi l I Wheeler, Mar
shall & Bruce-
