THE BANNER APPEALING TO DCIQCKATS!
The Jimner repeat? its iufUrmation to democrats
that the' are "xit ;t tmrfec-t l)erty to vote affiim-t
Jonssoorat le:t uot to vote far lu'uu" AVhat a
Wt;5ht of oldigatiait the democmey owe the lim
ner for this important information!
Tin: democrats are at li'erty to vote forMnj. IIkn"
nv ! for Mrj. Henri, "who showed hi.- liberality to
them by districting the State, with the single eye to
disfranchise them .in Congress and the Legislature.
Tlie audacity of the apeal to democrats in be
half of such a man is only -qualIed by the impu
dence requisite to enable such a politician as the
Jimner to speak to democratsat all!
It is the duty ofdemocrats, and they so feel it, to
rebuke the partisan malignity with which Maj. ITtK-
i:r has for years pursued them a malignity which
finally took effect in the fraudulent Henry mander,
by which the State was districted with the single
motive of disfranchising the democracy aud giving
the wliigs majorities.
Democrats at liberty to vote for such a man ! So
they are at liberty to vote for the editor of the lian
ner for a little as well as a big whig but when
they do it they will 1k entitled to canonization on
the ground of po-wossiiig the meekness of Mojes and
the patience of Joh.
THE WHIG SECRET CIRCULAR.
The editor of the Franklin Review shoulders the
responsibility of the whig secret circular. He say?,
in a letter to the Rumer, that he p.-inted the article
in the Review, with tiie j'rojter credit to the Banner;
'. l ' and that two thousand copies wereafterwards print
ed for general distribution, to which the credit was
omitted "by oversight."
A most fortunate "oversight," truly! "With the
credit to the Banner attached to the extra, this
"candid appeal a the democrats of Tennessee"
. would h.ive too little weight to be worth the cost
of printing. Tlte democrats of Tennessee have
heard something of thn etlitor of the Banner! His
'candid appeals" to them would be likely to have a
very difle ent effect from the one intended. But to
print this appeal in an extra, and "omitby oversight'
the credit to the Banner, so that democrats would
read it without suspicion, was one of those very
lucky accidents which will occasionally happen in
"well regulated whig offices!
'It was only a few days ngo that the Banner
' quoted an anti-slavery s;ntiment, uttered years ago
by an obscure northern newspaper, as a proof that
the Democratic party favors abolitionism." Amer
ican. - "We deny peremptorily that the Banner ouoted
' ,the sentiment above referred to for the purpose
above referred to. The Jimner is utterly incapable
of perpetrating so ridiculous a hoh sequitur. Ban
ner. On the lGth July the Jimner quoted, as it said,
from the Greenfield (Mass.; Democrat, "in 184S'
'Democracy is and ever must be opposed to all
slavery. Democracy must ever go for free-soil.
Slavery can never be abolished in our country, ex
cept through tht; influence of Democracy."
The bend to the article in which this extract was
introduced was, "Democracy ami the Democratic
Party Whither are we tending?" And the arti- ;
cle purported, in its opening sentence, "to consider ;
Democracy in the relations which, in spirit audia
.'principle, it sustains to the institution of s Uvsr&"
Our statement of fact, in spite of the Vumirr$.
"denial, is thus literally sustained. To? e-ditor can-,
not say that his article referred to an intangible
democracy in the abstract, to viiicb he might apply
bis own definition, lie- named the. Democratic
Party" in the head to. 1ms article, and professing
-taeonsidmLAvhr wns tending, he introduced
the extract from the Massachusetts paper. We
have Vbfireiare fairly represented the object of the
sx tract in the paragraph first above quoted.
Wo disliko to be compelled so often to impale
our neighbor on his own pins. Uut if ho will neith
er strengthen his memory so as to remember one
day what he wrote the preceding day, nor cease to
deny facts palpable to his leaders, we have no al
ternative. 35" Thn Iiinw printed at least two editions
of its extra its "candid appeal to the democrats of
'f enin'ssoe." In addition to the heading which the
ono sent to "Williamson county contained, the won!
"Anoi.moxisM," in staring capitals, was put over
the head of the one sent to Robertson county. We
liave a copy of each in our office for exhibition to
the cnrioiH in whig trickery. We intend preserving
them as furnishing evidence of the estimate the
Banner places upon the intelligence of the voters of
the two counties. The base and unfounded cliarge
of "abolitionism" against CoL Johnson -was con
fined, so far as we are advised, to Hoberlon county.
Neither was this glaring head-line "alxilitionisnr
in the article in qucstionas it originally appeared in
the Banner. So that the extra is not "a literal
copy" of the Banner's editorial. Was the word ac
cidmtally inserted in the copies sent to Itobertson
Tnr Canvass tor Senator.- We are of opinion
from what we learn, that a much more general and
determined etfort is being made throughout the
county, to defeat Mr. Eeid. the regularlynominated
whig candidate to represent Davidson county m the
State Senate, than our whig friends generally are
aware of. We would, therefore, impress upon the
mmds of his friends throughout the county, that
they would do well to keep a shnrp )ool0"t in order
to be sure to post him no at the polls with a liand
some majority I True Whig.
SoMose Singleton, the hardest working whig
in .Nashville, gets the go-by. We told the old
mau, when he was parading round town with the
Cluppewa boys last fall, that the whigs only wanted
to use. him ; that when he came to ask them to vote
for him they would give him the cold shoulder.
Voters ok Tennessee!! Be assured tliat the
cliarge that Andrew Johnson was, or is now, in
fnvor of relinquishing or abandoning the present
federal basis of representation, in which three fifths
of our slaves are included, is wholly untrue. Those
who make the charge bwtcit to &eyii7,,-arid deserve
the appeMntion of libellers and calumniators.

: " ANDREW JOHNSON "
A IGX-FROlt " EAST TENNESSEE.,
Mr..BKOwxLOv, of tho luioxville Whig, sunporls
Maj. Hksrv for Governor, but he docs not confirm
the "glojving" accounts of whig prospects in that
section which" the'. whig papers,. here profess to have
received. On the contrary; lie confesses that witlf-
. out every whig vote in -East Tennessee he will be
defeated. As we know that he cannot get every
whig vote, we take thitartic!e as tantamount to a
confession of defeat We copy from the Whig:
M.xJiHExmr's rnosn:cTS. The account on our
first page of the di.cussion between Henry and
Johnson, is'froma reliable source, and we ask every
wlug.friend of his to read it attentively; Henry
deserves the support of every whig in Tennessee,
and of every voter in East Tennessee. To have him
beaten by Johnson would be a 'sin ahd a slaine;
and yet, if tho whigs do not stand up to him to a
man,"he will be defeated. Jbhnsbnia au artful man,
and withal a lucky man, seldom ever defeated be
fore the people.
"We are sorry those who have taken it upon them
selves here, to manage affairs, have neglected Heu
ry's interests, and wasted all their ammunition in
abusing Church well, andsnch whigs as support him.
Some of them have even gone so far as to say, that
thej' want no whig to vote for Henry who stripes
his ticket with Churchwcll's name! We hope the
friends of Henry have not been thus imprudent in'
other counties. And we hope, most sincerely, that
,the 65 wliigs in this city, and the 500 whigs in this
county, who are determined on voting for Church
well, take no offence at such remarks. Henry is a
gallant man, and honest and able man, and deserves
to be made Governor. It is, moreover, the intkk
ist of all parties that lie should be elected. He
can't help what his imprudent friends say behind
his back, and we again implore all Internal Im
I'ROtemcnt men to vote for him. We have reliable
information from - beyond the mountains, that he
will need r.VEnr whig vote. With -them he is
elected without them he is defeatei'. For our
part, we shall vote for Henry with more" of feeling,
and anxious ?olicitiide,llian for any other man whose
name mav be on our ticket
Axotoeb "Mistake." We learn, upon good au
thority, that upon consultation between a whig aid
a democrat, in Dickson county, it was agreed tliat
the tickets far that county shoii'dbe ordered of such
variety as to embrace the names of all the candi
dates. " But through mistake, it seems. Major TJen
ry3 name is not on any of them." Wc haw since
printed to order, anil forwarded fifteen hundred
tickets for Dickson, with -Major Henrys name on
them ; one thousand to one Order, and frre'hundred
to another order. Wc trust they may come safe to
hand, and Jio "mistake!" Tr ue W?.Sg.
This is very paltry in the 7Vms Whig. We refer
to it to say, that Mr. McXeilly. of Charlotte, or
dered of us 2000 tickets, l.fOO to contain the
names of Joirxsox and Amsox, and 700 the names
of Henrt and Zoixicorrcit The foreman of our
job office, who is a whig, took cliarge of the order,
and committed the error referred to printing the
requisite number for Zollicofteh but omitting the
name of Henry. The error was pointed out to us
in ample lime for its correction and -was promptly
corrected. We make this explanation ou3Ir." Mc
Neiley's account The reference to llic matter by
the True Whig is, we repeat pftirul and contempti
ble. We subjoin the statement of the foreman of our
job office, which has been furnished the True W?iig
moil Til ft Tare wnio.
Mr. Editor Sir : I see in yoitrpaper of yester

Tl i eTroe ct!
So fir as the election of Amirew Johnvn is con
cerned wo believe that is geoendly Conceded, and
from all the information we have from different
portions of the State, itisu fictas well established
us any future event can W, tliat Mr. Johnson will
be elected Uy a large and overwhelming majority.
llefiwng always toadopt tho sentiments which form
the ba-is of either political party, throughout a long
and brilliant political career, aiid contending as lie
ever has for the constitutional rights, social and po
litical, of the great mass of the people in its most
extended and comprehensive sense lie has not onlv
won the admiration and respect of the most distin
guished statesmen of the age of both jwilitical par
ties by his original conceptions of State ami national
policy, but he lias won so completely upon the af
fections and admiration of tlie people that the de
monstration in his behalf U enthusiastic and bound
less. Ero;n extreme poverty and helpless orplum
ae in yooth, he elevates himself by degrees to a
distinguL-Jicd Statesman, shivers a lance with John
Qiiiney Adams and other statesmen equally distin
guished u:i the floors of Congress, returns from the
halls of national Legislation to his shop board, and
engages cheerfully in the charitable vocation of cut
ting, grt.tis, jeans coats and coperas breeches for
the poor lioysof Greene comity. What wonder then
that when Mr. Johnson is nominated for Governor
that the very people whom he has served so noblv,
so devotedly and so well, should rally to his stand
aril and elevate him by a good old fashioned twenty
thousand majority to the office of Governor of
Tennessee, not because lie is a whig or not a whig,
because he is a democrat or not a democrat, but be
cause he is the people's man, and the man of the
people. Bolivar Democrat.
President Tierce Sociautv. One of the edit
ors of the New York Times, who was a fellow pas
senger of President Pierce, on his recent journey-
mgs, writes of him as follows: "nis (tlie Presi
dent's) trip to the North has furnished the occasion
to many of becoming familiar with the leading trait
in the President's character. Hiskindnes3of heart,
and concern for the comfort and happiness of all
around hira, has stood out before his fellow travel
lers at every turn. He is withal as his bland
smile and cheerful face indicate one of the most
amiable, sociable, frank and freest of gentlemen it
Las been my fortune to meet, and the nwst literal
ly democratic of all public men I have known for
5?" We have received a glowing account of the
lehate between the Congressional candidates at
Nashville. Mr. Allison surpassed the expectations
of his friends, and obtained a signal triumph over
his competitor, Gen. Zollicoffer. Give him a
ftrong pull, boys, and he will be Congressman.

county will be careful to see that their tickets' have
the name of Lfonard G. Faxon for joint represen

AiTiion of ItAiLKOAns. TJiomas Gray was born
jcus, j-.ui.uiu, iiuuui. nan a century or more
ago and this is all we know of his early history.
The. Middletou colliery had a railway to carry coal
to Leeds, a distance of three miles. The cars
moved along at the rate of three miles and a half
per hour. It was laughed at not by Gray, but
by the wise public Gray saw in his little work
something that might be augmented into greatness
and he thought upon the subject and forthwith
became a visionary 1 Die talked and wrote upon
Tiis project of "A General Iron Itailway;" the pso
pie declared him insane. Ho petitioned Parliament,
sought interviews with the Lords and other great
men, and thus became the laughing stock of all
England. He received nothing but rebuffs wher
ever he wenL All this took plack in 1820 or there
abouts. But he succeeded at last. The railways -wero
laid. And the world was benefited by the mad
jiess of Thomas Gray.
Well, what became of him? the reader will ask.
Wo do not know; but we believe he still lives in
Exeter, to 'which place he removed. Up to 1S4G
he had been neglected. While thousands have
heen enriched by the consummation of his brilliant
sclieme, lie remained forgotten forced by poverty
to sell glass on commission for a living. Howitt,
in the People's Journal, a few years ago, gave a
somewhat lengthy sketch of his career, thus bring
ing him iuto public notice. We have seen nothing
an print in relation to him lately. Elliot -wrote
Teat truth in these words: ''How many men who
3iave lived to bless mankind, have died unthanked."
How many of the railway projectors, agitators,
stockholders, Arc., have ever heard of the subject of
thte brief sketch ?
What strange creatures girls are. Offer one of
-thorn good wages to work for you, and ten chances
to one if the old woman can spare any of her girls,

frrlOM A ItlOGIUntlCAL SKETCH OP ANDREW JOnxMX.J,
ANDIIEW JOHNSON'S VIEWS ON Tlir.
SUIfJECT OF PEXITENTJAttY ITAKOlt.
Next to his own patient efforts, Mr. Johnson
owes his elevation in life to the appreciation of the
masses ofhis conntrymen. A mechanic himself he
has ever received from that class of hi countrymen
a hearty and constant support. In return for this,
partiality, and in obedience to tne dictates; of his
own views of right, he 1i:b ever labored for tlte ben
efit of those who earn their daily bread "by the
sweat of their brow." lie has been the laboring
man's friend in every public position in which he has
been placed, and his eloquent voice has ever been
heard in vindication of the dignity of labor, and-in
'defence of the poor man's rights. He ha3 stood up
in Congress and endured ridicule and denunciation
in behalf of that class from which he was proud to
claim his orgin. Its honor and interests were ever
foremost in his consideration, and he never failed to
vindicate the one when assailed, or promote the
. other when practicable.
line a member of the Legislature of -Tennessee,
and of tho Congress of the Nation, Mr. John
son was ever mindful of the interests of mechanics.
In the former body, in the early part of his career,
he took a firm stand in opposition to the present
aystem of bringing the hardened felons of the Peni
tentiary into competition with the honest mechan
ic? of the country. He believed the system un
just and degrading to tlie mechanic, -while it
wa3 wholly unnecessary to the interest of the State.
He looked upon it and spoke of it 33 one who had
felt tho effects of this legalized system of degrading
honest labor. While in Congress his views on this
subject were the same, and he took occasion to ex
press them with his usual boldness and power. In
1810, he introduced, in the Houe, the following
series of resolutions, which embodied hi3 sentiments
upon this important system. They are in confor-
J mity withhis views as expressed in our State Legis
lature. U e copy them here, nncasictor toem the at
tention of every mechanic in the State of Tennessee.
"Whereas, the permanency of a Democratic form,
of Government depends, to a great extent, upon
the perfect equality of the citizens and the respecta
bility of labor and the laborer, in all classes, and
no distinction ought to be recognized in theory or
practicu in a pure Democracy, except that which
may be brought about by high and honest worth
and superior intellectual attainments: And where
as most if not all the States composing this Con
federacy have erected prison-houses, commonly
called penitentiaries, and have passed criminal codes
liuuisiiiu an uiiciives, wuuiew exceptions, uy nara
labor and confinement in said prison-houses : And
whereas, the various branches of mechanism have
been introduced, and to a very great extent, con
