The Election ou Thiiriday.
It may he well enough to assure all
enemies of the Union that it is ut
ter idle for them to base anj
hopes . upon the election to be
held next Thursday for Judicial offi
cers. Under no state of case will these
or nj other offices be Buffered to pass in
to the hands of disloyal men, or men
who sympathize with the Rebellion. Tins
point is inevitably and unalterably set
tled. It is fixed beyond dispute. He
who expects by any trick or chic am ry to
ride into a place of power and proOt in
State of Tennessee, which is under
the jurisdiction of the Federal Govern
ment, assuredly reckons without his host
fiit offices within the jurisdiction of the
lederal Government are for the frieruU
exclusively of that Government, and no
man will be recognized other than as an
sscmy, who aids, abets or countenances
the Southerp Confederacy. It is certain
ly the climax of impudence and inso
lence for a rebel to ask to be elected to
any office within the Union lines, and to
make his treason a hobby to ride into a
plac of profit and trust. Certainly all
votes cast for a disloyal candidate will
f o for nothing.
We are highly gratified to hear of the
Tiurn 01 a laree number 01 lennes-
scans from the unholy and wicked cru
sade against the Federal Government.
It is noble and manly for us to forsake a
bad cause, when we see our errors. It
is a wretchedly false pride which leads
men to persist in error, when convinced
of their wrong. We affectionately and
earnestly advise all persons who have
come home from the rebel army to come
forward, without delay and renew their
allegiaace to that good old Government
which never deprived them of a single
right. They will be freely pardoned by
t-o ding. The Government is kind and

A gentleman informs us that he heard
a woman, a professed Christian, say, the

him go back." Aye, go back to toil, to
hardships, to'lilth, to hunger, and to dis

days of sorrow. Go back to rebellion,
to treason, and to tcrtiir. death. May

.hireling Market Home.
A large crowd gathered impromptu at
the Market House last night, to hear
M. M. Brif.!, Esq., candidate for Cir
cuit Judge. He made an animated, bold
and altogether admirable speech, with
the true Union ring in it. There is no
mistaking his position ; he is a thorough
straight-out loyalist. How strongly
does his conduct contrast with the du
plicity ,of his Rebel opponents. Let
every Union man come forward to the
polls and give him the zealous support
which he so well deserves.
A True Man.
Montgomery County was represented
in the Union Convention by Mr. Teart,
an estimable old gentleman, who, when
almost every one else grew faint-hearted,
stood boldly up and declared his fidelity
to the Union. And now, as the reward
of his loyalty, he Sees the dear old flag
restored. We say to him, "Well done,
good and faithful servant 1"
The Union sentiment of North Caro
lina is progressing rapidly. A regiment
of federal troops has been raised in the
State, and the people are offering to take
the oath of allegiance. It is significant
that scarcely a regiment of North Caro-
Iinans has been allowed by Jeff. Davis to
remain in the State, nearly all the troops
being'from other parts of the South.

INTKRESTINO PKR'ON'AL NARRATIVE OK TUB
FATTL1 OP SHiLOII.
From the St. Louis Democrat.
Lieutenant T. II. Simmons, of tbe Illinois
14th KegimeDt, relates to us tbe following
interesting incident which occurred on tbe
battle field cf Shilob :
About 11 o'clock on Sunday tbe Cth of
April, Lieut. S. was wounded, being shot
through the left lung. II was supponed to
tie Hi a dying condition, and va luft on the
Geld by his companions. About 3 o'clock in
tbe nfternoon of that ever meraoraDle day,
our forces having be.n driven back from
their position, a Confederate officer ot high
rank, and his staff, citme upon the ground
where Lieut. Simmons lay. The Rebel Ofli
ccr observing him lying there, not yet dead,
and from his uniform taking Dim to be a
Union officer, approached him, when the fol
lowing conversation ensued :
The Rebel ofllcer asked Lient. S. how far
it was to the Tennesee river. Lieut. S. be
ing too weak from the loss ot blood to speak
loud, beckoned to bimlo come closer, and in
a lower tone replied, "two miles and a-balf,"
The Rebel officer shook his head doubtingly.
Lieut. S. observed it, and said to bim, 'you
seem to doubt my word. But you see,'' he
added, pointing to bis wonnd. " I am dying,
and npon the word ot a dying man, to Ihe
beat or my judgment, it is two miles and a
bait to the river." The Rebel officer turm d
to converse with his staff, and ordered his
surgeon to give bim some stimulants. That
surgeon gave mm some brandy and moi
pbioe, which revived him considerably. Tbe
conversation with his staff, which tbe Lieu
tenant overheard, was about as follows : ,
Officer "It ia now 3 o'clock. It ia two
mjles and a half lo the river. . Tbe distance
is greater than I expected, but we can drive
Grant to so close quarters yet to night that
bis capture or capitulation will be an easy
thing in tbe morning." Tbe officer turned
again to the Lieutenant and atk dhlm about
Buell'a forcess tbelr number and position.
Upon Ibis subject Lieut. S. was entirely Ig
norant, of course. Tbe officer tbea remark
ed to bim, "It's no matter how lar it is to
the river, we rball whip you anyhow, and
force Gen. Grant to surre nder to-night, or
early to-morrow morning, and then capture
Huell. if he mEfkei hia appearance on the
field." Lieut, ii. replied, "You are not bo
certain of that. You bave got hard fighting
to do before your capture our forces yet, and
Northwestern freemen are not tbe craven
dogs to lie down alter the first brush and
allow themselves to be taken." "No matter,"
said the officer, "we rball whip you! Your
men won't fight." "Upon that subject,"
said tbe Lieutenant, "you will probably be
better informed before you get through with
to-morrow's fight. You surprised our men
this morning, and they were thrown into
some confuriou; but even this day's work
will show that 'our men will fight,' " "Well,"
said tbe officer, "I admire your courage, and
wish such men as you were not fighting
against the Sou 111 ; you cannot conijuer tbe
South, and aint you sorry you engaged in
the war?" 'No, .Sir," said Lieutenants.,
"and 1 would do it ogain." "Do your peo
ple nil feel that way?" asked the officer, Yes,
fcir,".replied the Lieuleuaut.
The officer said no more, but with u tal
look mounted his horse and rode off. One
of the Rebel officer's a d bad dismounted
to wat'ir bis borne iu a creek close 07, and
before remounting came near where the
Lieuiemiut lay, who beckoned him to come
to him, and atk':d bim "who that officer
was?'' Tbeaidsuid "lhat is Gen. J! aure
gard.;' The Lieutenant, however, had re
copiiz.'d him from Ins striking reaernblanco
to photographs of the Rebel General.

perience ul the buttle of Shilob of one of
our intelligent and patriotic m.-ighbors of Il
linois, and who is now lu ona of tbe boa-
pitali", in a lair way, we hope, of recovery,
