Deau Cove, isc county, Va.,
Sept. 11, lt't'j.
Mu. Slack Dour Sir : L t-'a bin a
lung spell sinco 1 rit a lcttur fur the
newspapers, unci tho reason is, my old
friends Coale & Burr have quit print
iu, and as ic way bo several weeks
vit before they begin agin, I thought
I'd drap you a few lints, and ax you
to print 'cm. Another reason why 1
havc'nt rit much is, Unit t.iings have
bin bo juinbelled and turned topsy
turvy, that there's bin no males to tote
letters, and the people have never in
vented tho plan to send them by fe-
males. For two or three years, ivhile
the dark shadows of the war have bin
dancm and career in round like the
earthquake that the l'lophct heaid
when the .Lord hid him iu the rock of
Jloreb, I've bin us otieasy as a U ad
under a harrow, cant kee: niv moutii
bhtt any longer, an. i li 1 iIjii t let it. i cr md, sen I n liar s your where
go oil' 1 beliuvo in my soul I'll bust, j abouts, who is you, wiiat have you did
and that's a consuiiiiiiatiou not to be j and whit want you be expe'.-te I to do?
devoutly wished for ny a sartin imli- , Stop, ses. he, don't ax so many ques
vidual about try size, age and com-j tions at once, and I'll tty to answer
plexion. One of tne last letters I rit j em. (loon, ses I. and answer the
to Goale o U.nr wan jist alter my In st j plain questions 1 ve axed U neciten t
visit to Bristol, wheio 1 went to see i take a week, nor an hour, nor five inia
my friend Ce-tnan, to hear Imn talk ! nits. Well, ses he, I'm a Southern
and to see him eat chi-snuts, and , man in favor of the Union I was a
spread himself upon the subject of 1 disunionist of the strictest sort, but
Biistol and its Uatterin advantages as ! w hen the Know Not bins came along
tho future seaport and capital ot the
Southern Uohtederacy. lie give me a
great deal of information about things
an gineral and himself in particular,
iur which 1 thank him, and winch 1
could'nt git anywhere else since the I
uutch have quit niukin almanac!
Before that i rit beveral letters aooiii j
gpekilaters and extortioners, and tome j
of the fellers 1 punched in the ribs j
liave'nt forgot me nor torque me to .
this day, and 1 reckon they never will, j
for 1 piled it on em goiter thick and :
fast, and if they bad boles as big as a j
mustard-seed they must have ftli like '
they could crawl into an auger hole.
J3ut they are done tor now, for u 11 the
moiiev thev madebv r-.indin the faces !
of the poor is no more account than
60 many black-jack leaves, and has
left sum 83 poor in their iil-irottcn
gains as they are iu honor and reiui
But I sot down to make ti pint or
two, and with God's blessdi I'll try to
cemo at cm square up, liku tlie boy
that butted tho bull off the bri lire. It
any body don't like the shoe I'm goin '
to make, thev ncedent nut it on, and
tlicn it'll not pinch em, sartin.
As things are begunn git sorter like
c--- a e--
tliey used to was, we've had some elec-
tions, aud n the news is tuio that
comes to the Cove we're soon to have
some more sich as my old friend the
Judge and Mr. Martin used to run
for. Kow about the elections that
lias bin and sat aside, there's some
thing that I don't exactly understand,
mo h may De as clear as mint to a
l'hiladelphy Court. 1 know I've not
-1. . . i , i : .
got much sense, but if I had as much
as Timothy Titus, I'm sure 1 could
neverdiscover tho wisdom of Mr. John
son's Government in settin a.side the
election of good Union men, and gin
in tho secessiouers tlie chance to wrig
gle in like a pussel of euls tryin to
hide themselves in the m id.
lias been the case all over Yin
but as you re more familiar with what
has happened iu your own county, I'll
take that for a text. Mr. Fields and
Mr. Campbell, who was elected, one
for Sheriff and tother fur Clerk, are
both good men and true, and were
about as much opposed to teses-.-ion
and as strong for the Union us honest
men could well be, and yit, bekase they
volunteered in the army to keep from
beiu conscripted, and were so unfor
tunate as to git commissions, they've
bin sot aside, and the dour pushed
wide open for secessiouers to come iu
and grab the offices. If there's any
one fact plainer than another fact
Wuiie the war lasted, it was that the
raiopantest fire-eaters the fellers
that wanted tho war and did the most
to bring it on was the most lucky in
keepin outen tho way of uullits and
bagnots, and when they was forced
into the army, in findin soft places to
mo on. itns, in course, was not de
signed by them for to s-iy it wis,
would be an impeachment of their pa
triotismbut it jt st happened so, ami
no doubt they think the savin i.; li ne
that's it's better to be bom lucky than
rich. There's soino exceptions to Lo
sure, but they're like imgid's visits,
few and far betucen, 1 call your at
tention to this groat blunder" in Mr.
Johnson's Government, and will ax
youjist totako notice if the very kind
of men the law intended to keep outen
tdlice don't git in, -ind the vcrv kind
of .nen the law intended to git into j Doctor's a candyd.Uo for Congress,
