We wish we had the power fully to impress upon,
our!friends the importance of .the 'ejection Vhich
takes plate on Thursday next Ticwed initeprolv

liaving peromied a high and patriotic fluty. If wc
are'deTeatfid, chagrin and aisappolntnient 'w-Ill break
the spirit which ha3 struggled so,long to rescue the'
home of Jackson' and Tots from the thraldom of
their political" opponents, and.as a party .wft. must
sink" into an inglorious vassalage for years to come.
Belicveihg, as we firmly do, Uiat:this xr&M th
effects of-deTeat at (lus critical time, wc invbkeour'
friends every where to be up and at work to secure' .
a victory- This canle done, it every democrat will
poll his vote for his party candidate. Will any de
."jmoentt fail to do this? Willlie fall, at so brfical a
moment, to go to the polls and cast i'n lns' mite for
.Vtfio success of "Ihe democratic cause? Our opponents
' ,;i)clievc that fomeof our friends will do this. They
" fancy UiatUieir recldess misrepresentations liave
taken root, and created discontent in the democratic
ranfa. Xet the result "brother democrats, prove that
this conceit is as groundless, as it is insulting to your
discernment and intelhgencc.
Ve;told our democratic friends In the last.qontcSf
.thatiftiioy would poll their, full strength, tle vote
ofTenessee would ho cast lor urmskus
-The resultproved the truth of our assertion. .Had
the entirftdemoeratic votelaecii cast,' the' democrat;
ic majority 'in the Slate, would not have been less
"than 'six or seven thousand!, We again tefl our
friends that if thoy will turn out in their fullstrength
on Thursday next, Andreiv Jdlmson mil be!' elected,
and-no mistaka There are hundreds ol wings, wno
wiil not support G cbtjivts A HEXKr. His past re
cord does not suit them. There are hundreds
who icill support AxnnEW Jonxstfx, becftuse his past
record does suit tliom. -It is only necessary, then,
that Jonxsps's political friends should stand by him
in order to ensure a victory, and such a victory too
as every Tennessean, who caa lay asulc partizan
feeling, will be justly proud of hereafter. We in
voke our friends, then, to stand fimi-f-to :treat as
they deserve to be' treated the misrepresentations
and calumnies of Coh JoiresONVenemi'esandfinal-
ly to make one determined and enthusiastic rally on
Thursday next and put htm through I . .
"We must make a gain in East TennesfeaT
" True H fog.
Our friends can see, from the- above, whatamount
of,reliance is to bo placed upon the judgments of
whig papers at this time. "Wemf gain in -East
Tennessee," quoth the True. Whig! ' Why) man,
you are ccrtainlymad stark mad. East Tennessee
lias not been represented in thq Executive office, "
in the person of one of her son for over quarter
of a century. She has been asking fbr this honor
t'orlo these many years, and do you suppose that she
will now desert her own faitliful and well-tried son,
when victory is within his grap? The thing is
preposterous. East Tennessee ' will roll .up a vote
for ANDREW JOHNSON which will astonish and
electrify the whole.dcmocracy of the State. 3fark
t?te prediction, for it is based upon the best informa
tion. Our democratic friends in the fiddle, and
Western divisions, have but to "hold their own,"
and, the victory is ours! But shall tee "be satisfied,
with holding our own ? Docs it not becomo-us, loo,
to give the mechanic statesman an Increased 'oto?
It does and Ave ut7? doit! The Mechanics; the
worh'ng men, of Middle and West Tennessee have
their hearii in this contest. -That they will give
Andrew .Tonxsos a mark of their esteem and ap
probation for his long mid ardent devOtibn to their
interests is certain. To desert huhjriow .would be
rank ingratitude, and thc-know it' '
Wc, therefore, say to our friends in every section
of the Sttc be not alarmed hy the reports or pre
dictions of the whig press. It is an old trick with
'our opponents to" cry out lustily to keep their dropp
t ing spirits up 1 They arc at that trick noy, but it
" . is too "common and transparent to frighten or de
ceive any one. As L always the case, our opponents
-'' overshoot "tlieinark, in these spasmodic efforts to
create a delusion. They will tell teles too. improb
able for belief. Of this kind is the Trne W big's, dec
laration that "We (the whig?) mukt make a gain in
East Tennessee!" This intemperate aertiori leaves
no doubt as to the cliaracter of whig predictions' in
general, just now. They are mere random guesses
. nothing more and of the most improbable char
acter at that We want no better evidence of the
sinking fortunes of Maj. IlExm-than the declaration
that he -'niNi't.make a gain in East Tennessee."
In ont district in East Tennesseche tri'l loose Jive

Mr, True Whig. i '

-The Banner of yesterday says ;
"Mr. Johnson would despoil, every jxxr man,
every non-slave-holder of Davidson county, who
depctsites his vote in the ballot-box on Thursday, of 1
a portion ol his consMuiionalrigmf. m order to give
it to men, ricli and poor, who reside in counl tes
where there are few or no slaves. TJiat's what Mr.
Johnson and his home organ would do, and tlutt's
what the Union and American and every man who
favorsand countenances his doctrine, wouldaid aad
assist him in doing. Thafs the issue."
In this manner the whig papers have been ifi
ditftriously lalioring, for some time, to get up a fiilse
(sue in the present canvass. It is not trjie that CoL
Joirxsos, or the Union and American, or any por
tion of the democratic party, is seeking to do wliat
the Manner charges. The resolutions which CoL
Jonxsox offered in the Legislature of 1S42 arc not, 5n
issue in the present canvass. He does not advocate
them as an issue. We do not advocate them :is
suck CoL Joiissos defends his past course, but lie
does not propose to atter the Jirtsenlbasisofajtpoiiioil--
inent Uur democratic lnenus should remember th is
and not bo led off, as their opponents wish to leed
tbcui off by a fake issue.
Maj. Heskt, in the Legislature of KeutucVty
voted toproliitnt Hie introduction of slaves into A'si-tucl-y.
Wc might allege that such a prohibition is
an issue in the present canvass, with as much pi-p-priety'and
justice as our opponents observe wh.cn
. they allege that a change of the basis of apportii in-
mcntis involved in the present contest inert'

A WORD IX SEASON.
The ITcmphis 'Appeal gives the following timely
.advice, vhich we trust yill be. well weighed and act-.
ed upon by our frienU3 throughout theState;. 'In
the history of the party contests in Tennessee for
the last fifteen yeais, no fuct has stood out more
prominently than that the democracy have suffered
"at every election frim an over confidence in. th?
justice of 'their cause and the purity of their princi
ples. Although these are at all times . wonby of
our most implicit trust, there are' nevertheless oth
er duties to'be performed if we.would win in a race
where the strength of the opposing partias is so
equal as in Tennessee. There arc hundreds and
' thousands of voters who measure the" merits of a
catise by the zeal of those who are regarded as its
- warmest votaries. They judge our faith by our
works, arid hence a dozen zealous laborers at each'
precinct on .the day of electiou, are often -wprth as
much assail the. Fpeeches, made ,in the canvas.. .
The time i3 now close at hand when our candidates
"must retire from the fieidt. their' portion, of the la
bor Jiavinj; been performed. It is for-the friends of
the cause every where now to gird "on their armor
anu" bring to a glorious result the work, which has
been so auspiciously begun. We conjure burTriends
not to be idle. Let them work until tha close of
the polls on the day of election, and see that the
full' strength of the parly is brought put, and wo
.feel every assurauce of a triumphant victory.'"'.
"DEMOCRACY AND ABOLITIONISM."
Sucli is the heading of an article in the Banner,
-which attempts to show that some democrats in the
northern Statesare-bpposed to slavery. The Banner
-williliavo. to. try again before it finds from- a jlortliera'1
democfat'as strong ibbutidnism as the following,
Irom n.uenncssee trnig: .
" The 'institution of Hotnestlc slavery in "other
places and earlier times,, may have been ac

tion. We know that Iiere, it has the circumstance

'Besolved, That shivery is MORALLY, POLITI
CALLY, AND ECONOMICALLY WRONG, and
that its ABOLITION by the approaching corn-cation
will be proper, expedient and practicable."
' Now this is genuine, unadulterated abolitionism.

ininL'tration that it appoints men to " office who

THE STRONG DEMOCRATIC COUNTIES.
' VVe,'Jost the last election, andifound out State
ranged alongside of Vermont, through the neglect of
the democracy or strong democratic counties to
vote. Sumner, Lincoln,- and "Weakley could very
easily liave each given two liundred. more majority
than they did.- And there -were a dozen other
.counties which fell offa hundred eack This falling
off lost us the State. A similar falling off Is all tliat
can now lose it to us. "We.appcal to these strong
counties especially to make immediatearrangements
toiMifreafullvote. Success lsascerfain, if a full vote
L polled, as defeat is certain without this. The dem
ocrats in the strong whig counties are always sure
to vote. In the counties where 'parties are pret
ty equally divided, local contests for the Legis
lature bring out both parties in their full strengtli.
The danger and the difficulty lies in the strong dem
ocratic counties, where the whigs make no opposi
tion to democratic candidates for the Legislature.
Vc appeal to the pride of the .dembcrals of Lin
coln, .Franklin, Sumner, Maury, and other strong
counties, not to let the results in their counties be
such that other counties, wliich may have done their
duty, shall liave the chance to point compla'mingly
to thorn, as liaving lost their party a viutory by fail
ing to poll their full vote.

sharein tlie indignation, if not in the astonishment,
with which the proceedings and policy ofRussia in

The noble stand taken by the Sultan of Turkev
and maintained so long, so resolutely, -and at so
much periL in favor of the Hungarian refugees
' 'whosenlood was sought by the vengeance of their
.Austrian, ana.Kussian oppressors, has certainly con
trihuteu to this leelm!? in the United States: vet
tho sentiment of this country, unon the snbiect is
doubtless mainly determined by the perception of
iuc linn, iimi, ivusiia proveroiauy tno strong holu
of despotism witiiin lier borders has also within
the last quarter cfa century sicmalized herself as

In this sense it is that, although 'this country is no
parly to that European system which the Russian
assault upon Turkey disturbs, nor to the various
treaties which it violates, yet the moral sense of our
people has been probably even more deeply offend
ed by this new instance of lawless and despotic ag

THE LATE FBIGIITFIJL CATASTKOPUE AT "
NIAGARA FALI5. .
TO- THE XniTOR OF THE ilERALD. ,
As I -was an eye witness of the horrible, pcene
.jvhich Uiejapids at Niagara presented during-Tues-day's
accident, it may interest many of your' readers
to learn a 'few particulars, which wilt enable them
Uie better to realize the awful position in which, for
twenty hours, Uie late unfortunate Joseph Avery
was placed. . . .
The log on which he sat, and occasionally stood
upright,-was firmly jammed between, sitine rocks,
about half way between Uie bridge which crosses
the American branch of Uie river and tha Falls. At
the same Ume he was in the very centre of Uie river,
which Uiere boils foam, and whirls towards the tre
mendous abyss of the cataract Of the force of the
current below the bridge it is difficult to convey any
idea. To draw any thing in Uie shape of boat or raft
against it, is simply hopeless. ' Therefore the only
feeble clianee of saving Uie1 man was' to haveleta
boat down the rapids from the bridge by ropes', and
should he have succeeded in entering into it, .to al
low it to drift across, if possible, to a small island
called Clapin's Island, about half way between the
log and Goat's Island, which divides the Canadian
from the American rapids.
When I reached Uie bridge, at about two o'clock,
Uie American shore and the-bridge were lined with
spectators in a state of the most thrilling and in
tense excitement. Tlie more eager were propound
ing all kinds of extravagant plans for saving the
man, for the most part founded on a total ignorance
of Uie gigantic force of Uie torrent, which rendered
any plan that involved liauling or dragging through
the "watter utterly useless, inasmuch as the jagged
rocks would never have allowed anything but a
mangled anil slnqicless corpse to reach the bridge or
shore, even if it had been possible to overcome the
violence of the stream at alL Tlie man had now
been sixteen hours on the log. One boat had been,
Iost a second had one of its ropes entangled round
Uie log, and itwns terrible to witness Uie' desperate
and agonizing efforts of Avery to detach the rope;
but the;, strain upon the boat rendered this Impossi
ble, Those on the bridge who were .exerting them- '
selves to save Uie man reluctanUy gave up all hope
of doing anytlilng with Uie boat ami, liaving hiado .
a futile effort to float down to him a fresh rope with
a piece of Umber attacked, now turned all their ef
forts to the launching of a raft his Lost fault clianee
of salvation from the fate that awaited liini.
This raft consisted of two large beams of wood,
united by planks nailed across, and on one end of it
Was lashetra- barrel ; the other was provided wiUi
ropes, crossed in various directions, to enable the
man to Lash "himself to the raft by getting under
them, and a small tin case containing spirits and
food. The raft was-sojong-that when lowered from
the bridge it touched the water before those above
let go their hold, and it w.vs with great rapidity
carried down in the direction of the victim. But
now occurred, jierliaps, the most melancholy Inci-(
dent iluring the whole exciting period of Avery's
agony. One of the ropes, not being wound round
any post or other object jvhlch might have given It '
a purchase, was literally torn through the hands of i
some twenty men who were holding it, notwith
standing that they made the most obstinate efforts
to hold it, and had, several oftliem, Uieir hands
all bleeding from the passage of the rop& The raft
then drifted away, for it-was iinpossijile, with a
single rope, to exercise any control overits move
ments Meantime, theman-on the log liad been re
peatedly in and out of the boat, and continued fo
make desperate efforts to Telease the rope from the
log. He still appeared capable of considerable exer
tion. After great delay, and some discus.-ioii on
the bridge as to Uie measures to be adopted, a sec
ond rait was prepared, and another lifeboat which
liad arrived from Buffalo was mounted upon it, and
thus secured from being swamped as Uie preceding
boats had been. This second raft was let down the
rapids in the same way as the first, and by about six
o'clock the man succeeded- in cettinir upon it A
universal shout of triumph arose from tlie crowd
upon Uie shore and bridge. All waved their hats
and handkerchiefs in token of encouragement
Akis ! the next moment the raft struck against a
rock, and at the moment tliat Avery was about fo
climb into the boat, he lost his hold (enfeebled by
twenty hours of cold, wet and suffering,) and was
seen a few minutes later to raise himself to life full
height for an instant on the extreme edge of the
cataract, and utter a shriek which some imagined
to be the wonls "cood bve." but which was" prob
ably a mere inarticulate cry of despair, and all was.
over. The dead silence which followed and lastod
for nearly two minutes on the bridge was mast aw
ful Then for Uie first tune the men who liad been
working like lions all day Jonjr beneaUi a burnin?

human power could do, and God had decided tho

circumstances as were best calculated .to make f:a
