governs ua all, and ono party is as much
bound by it as tho other, tho friends of peace,
of tho Constitution, of tho President, and of

ulent Radical vote shall bo polled. One

EX. IXE lir.FOKE THE COMMITTEE.
The examination of Gen. Lee before tho
"Central Directory," a full report of which
we published yesterday, is exceedingly sug
gestive. It should go a great way towards
convincing tho mind of the great and intel
ligent masses of tho Northern people of tho
groundlessness of the Congressional attempts
to ostracise the (Southern people from parti
cipation in tho jiolitical administration of
national affairs, and to restore the proper
and constitutional relations among all the"
States of tho Union. Gen. Lee made direct
and intelligent answers to all the questions
put to him. He shunned nothing, and no
where equivocated. Though some of tho
interrogations impounded wore calculated
to implicate him in trials upon charge
that may hereafter come up, ho evaded noth
ing and made a clean breast upon all the sub
ject suggested. Hisconduct before tho Com
mittee, was not only frank and honest, but
noble. He gave true and substantial in
formation in relation to the state of the
South which, whether accepted now or not,
will jiom into history as absolute truth. We
forbear to criticise tho line of interrogatories
pursued by the catccliistn for that speaks
for itself. Wc simply wish to rc-improas
ujwn the public mind the character of the
examination, and the result or shown In (he
guileless answers of the man -who' stands
everywhere without fear and, witiout re-prooei.
THE XUECCTOX TO-DAY.
We trust that the election to-day will be
conducted calmly, orderly, and in accord
ance with law. There should be a full vote,
for the matters to 1 determined are of prime
importance. It is not merely whether ono
man or the other ihall occupy a scat in tho
House of Ruproseniati ves. It is to be the de
liberate decision of the people of Davidson
county in their higa capacity as voters, upon
one of the mo.it interesting questions which
can engage tho attention of a free people.
They aro to say whether they arc willing
that their liberties nhall bo curtailed, and if
so, how far; whethjr they will abandon the
right to participatii in the management of
tne (government, and if , to adjust with
their masters, the measure of degradation
they may be capable of ; whether they are
intelligent and independent freemen, or
spiritless slaves. This is the main question,
and surely unless this people are degenerate
indeed, it is sufficient to arouse them to
action. , :
Incidentally, they aro to decide whether
they will rebuke the unwise and destructive
policy of the present State Government, or
give free rein to thti' spirit of Radicalism,
and permit the Stale to be afflicted with the
innumerable mischiefs which follow in its
train. They arc to give an expression of
opinion between Proiidcnt JoitNSOlf stand
ing with the Constitution of the country in
his hands, and endeavoring by the light of
its instruction, to free the nation from the
perils which surround it, and the majorities
in the present Congress of the United States
and the Legislature of Tennessee who have
defiantly set themmilvca in opposition to
him. They arc to rote for Makson M,

Radical politicians who have attached their
fortunes to those of the arch-Radicals in

These are the questions before tho people
and wo insist that their gravity and

It is the duty of tin- election officers to
aflbrd every lawful facility to those odering
to vote. While they administer the law
governing tho election, strictly, they should
not permit thomselvcs to be made parties to
delay and difficulty in receiving the ballot
of every' entitled voter, Challenges are ad
missible, but they should be made clearly,
and disjwsed of promptly. To the qualified
voter, we would say, comply with the law, and
if challenged to the oath, take it promptly,
and make way for the next voter. Do not
jwrinit yourself to be drawn into alterca
tion, but in every thing conduct yourself as
a good citizen, fully appreciating the neces
sity for voting to-day in order to preserve
for yourself and your children tho right
to vote hereafter.
If public virtue has not sorely decayed,
there can bo no doubt of the result.
KTOUl'S AND JIAV.V.VIH) IX CONNEC
Tho Radical newspapers tell ,us that
"there never was a morohotlycontested can
vass than that which is in progress in Con
nccticut. Among the spsakers on tho Rad
ical side this week, arc 'ol. Stokes and
Horace Mavnand, of Tennessee," and
from the congressional delegations we nro
told that Massachusetts furnishes X. P,
Banks, and Ohio, J. A. Garfield. Ten
nessee can afford to furnish a double
proportion of H-ieakcrs, because her anti
Johnson Radical representatives elect have
nothing else to do.
The inquiry is natural, why (lid not CAJtl'
dell, and Coor-HR and Dorsey Thomas,
and tho other members cltct from this State
go to Connecticut anil throw themselves
bodily into the Connecticut canvass on the
side of Stevens nnd the tost of the "Cen
tral Directory," charged ivith keeping tho
States of tho Union dissevered in defiance
of the Constitution ? Why did Stokes and
Maynard monopolise the work of putting
tho Nutmeg State irrevocably in the train of
Sumner and Phillips and their coadjutors
against tho President ? These are questions
in which tho people of Tennessee are espe
cially interested, and which, it is to be
hoped, they will investigate to tho bottom.
The position of affairs in Connecticut, as
wc understand it, is, that one of the parties
to the contest is for the Union upon the
President's policy, embracing every public
declaration and official act from his inaugu
ration to the present moment. The other
party is for tho policy of SoiDfEit and Ste
vens, inaugurated since the assembling of
tho present Congress. The one is for and
the other ngainst tho measures adopted nnd
tho stops taken to restore peace and prosper
ity to tho Union and to all the people there
of. Stokes and Maynard side with tho
latter. The candidates in Connecticut arc
named respectively English and Hawley.
A loading Connecticut pottmaster reccnlly
wrote to the President that he warmly fa
vored the election of the former, saying that
if it was not consistent with the views of tho
administration, ho asked that his resigna
tion be received, and a successor appointed.
The President replied that, ho declined to
accept his resignation, and that his political
views were unobjectionable. Another lead
ing postmaster subsequently wrote to the
President a similar letter, stating that ho
was equally icalous for thonucccss of Haw
ley, nnd making a similar request. His
resignation was immediately accepted, and
a successor appointed whoso views coincided
with those of the President. Stokes and
Maynard arc for Hawley, and opposing
the Presidential policy. We trust theso
facts will not Iks forgotten by our people.
Let it be the first duty this morning of
every Conservative voter to go to the polls.
He may find the military there, and he may
find a challenger there. Neither need givo
him trouble, if he understands his duty.
The challenger can only require tho oath,
and that is easily taken bj every legal vo

THE POIXS T BE T7ARBED.
We learn that Gor. Brownlow has ap
plied to Gen. Thomas to "place a military
guard at the voting places in this city to
day. This is one of the Governor's modes
of creating capital, and of manufacturing
public sentiment abroad against the people
who see and condemn the error,of his ways,
and those of, tho Congressional Radicals
which are one and the same. He wants it
telegraphed to Washington and all over the
North, that the -etate of feeling hero was
such that the presence of the military was
absolutely necessary to protect the " Union
ists '"from violence at the hands of "the
rebels of Davidson county." There never
was uttered and tried to be fastened upon
any people a more gronntiicss aspersion.
There has been no .intimation from any
quarter that the friends of Major Lewis
would probably or possibly take possession
of the polls, and endeavor to prevent a free
election. Whatever reasons were urged to
Gen. Thomas for this interference with the
civil rights of this people, they are wholly
without foundation in fact. The ballot to-day
in this city and county would be as free, if
every American soldier was marshaled on
the farthest confines of Asia, as it will be in
the hands of Gen. Thomas' guards so far
as Maj. Lewis and his supporters are con
cerned. If the object of the Governor be,
however, to intimidate and drive away the
legal voters from the polls, we trust that none
such shall be so deterred from a manly as
sertion of their rights as freemen.
Upon sufficient representations from the
Governor, Gen. Thomas would be recreant
if he did not comply with .the request to aid
the civil authorities to maintain the laws of
the land, and order amone the people. If
the public Fense of justice and honor has
been outraged'by the request, it is no fault of
Gen. Thomas or his men unless they trans
cend, the legitimate duties of such an occa
sion in their performance We have no
doubt Gen. Thomas will detail officers of
sense and discretion for this duty, and that
they will only be present to aid the appoint
ed officers of the election to conduct it free
ly and .'impartially under the laws govern
ing it. The guards will have no other duty
to perform; and we trust that if the Governor
expects that this ruse will influence legal vo
tersto absent themselves from the ballot box
he will be signally disappointed. Let it be
rather an additional inducement that every
true friend of peace, concord and Union
shall insist upon his right to express himself
through the ballot box, as he is entitled
through the laws of the land to do.
THE CITY GOVERNMENT OI NEW
The municipal government of New Or
leans is assuming an interesting shape. The
Mayor elect, Monroe, and Alderman elect,
Nixon, were prevented from entering upon
tho duties of their respective positions by
special order of Gen. Canby. This order
states that they both "may come within the
excepted classes of the .President's amnesty
proclamation, and neither' having received
a special pardon, they arc thereforesuspend-
ed from the exercise of any of the functions
of those offices until their cases can be in-
vestigated, and the pleasure of the President
be made known." By the city charter it is
provided that in case of a temporary vacan
cy in the Mayoralty, the President of the
Board of Aldermen shall act. Accordingly,
Geo. Clark became the rcting Mayor.
In the meantime five suits have been en
tered in the proper courts, contesting Mon
roe's election as Mayor, two of tho Record
ers elect, and two of the Aldermen, by their
unsuccessful competitors. Pending these,
the Mayor pro tern, is going forward in or
ganizing the city government under the late
election. But for some ..cause, Gov. Wells
refuses to commission the newly elected Re
corders, and Mayor Clark proceeds regard
less of the Governor. The Picayune thus
states one of the cases:
Mr. Ahern npplicd in person nnd through his
counsel, AlcxanderN'olker, to (lovcrnor Well
lur liU oomini.-Mon as Justice of the 1'eacc, tho
constitution of lSdi making it imperative on the

l'eaco to the ilayor and Kocordors. The Gover
nor refused to givo tho commissions as asked, ob
jecting to Mr. Ahern on certain grounds that wcro
set up by the contestant for his place, and which
aro to be judicially determined.
Mr. Kreubhe, the acting Recorder, was willing
to civo uu tho nlacc. but was advised br the (lov
crnor not to do so. Air. Ahern then, by advice of
bis counsel, applied to tno .Mayor to Do placed in
possession, and, at the same time, addressed a let
ter to tho Attorney General, inquiring if ho cotild
er officio perform the duties of n committing
magistrate. Mayor Clark issued tho following

THE KAU IIUSINESS IN NEW TOItK.
The rag business is an immense trade in
the city of Kcw York. Tho Board of Health
had a meeting of tho dealere-reccntly, forthc
purpose of ascertaining how the practice of
sorting, drying and steaming rags affected
the health of the city, and how the business
could be removed if such a cause should be
found necessary. Wc gather from the re
port of the proceedings published in the pa
pers of that city, that there arc over 10,000
persons who receive their support from that
business. The amount of business done is
said to amount to about $4,000,000 a year.
The cotton rags arc used principally in tho
manufacture of paper, woolen rags are sold,
worked into shoddy, and manufactured into
stockings, flannels, carpets and other things.
There is a great prejudice against the busi
ness, but those engaged in it maintain that
it is not unhealthy. One Of the parties in
interest before the board said that he cm
ployed from twenty to forty girls in assort
ing rags, all of whom were in good health,
fat and rosy, and that as for a ragman's fu
neral it is a novelty indeed. Nevertheless,
a different opinion prevails with those not
interested in the business, which is likely to
result in the removal of such establishments
to some point beyond the limits of the city.
UrOX the subject of Mr. Stewart's propo
sition of universal amnesty, on condition of
universal suffrage to die negroes of the
South, the Richmond En quircr says:
The Washington Chnniele tells us, indeed, that
to the bargain wo have referred sundry. South
erners now in Washington am contracting par
ties. Messrs. Hoyce, Sharkey, Parsons and 1'ooto
arc named in this connection. As to all except
the last wu are informed the statement is without
authority. Henry S. l'note will not be named as
one that has the slightest hold or claim on the re
gard of a Southern eitiien by any person whoso
earsiind eyes have not been closed for the last
two J ears, or who has the least acquaintance with
Southern sentiment, llutifoncorali the gentle
men above named, or a hundred times so many,
were to make any such compact, they would do it
without authority t nnd their engagement would
be utterly repudiated at the South as opposed to
all our convictions of duty to ourselves, to the
country, to the whites and to tho neproe. We
will dischargo all our obligations in good faith.
That done, we plant ourselves on onrrigbts under
the Union and Constitution, and there we stand
until they are accorded. If denied us, the fault
will be that of others. We can never purchase
them by sacrificing our solemn convictions of
honor, conscience, and duty to country. Wo ap

ous In every State, who are fighting our battles
on this very issue, that they need hare no fear
that we will desert them in the battle', heat,

Let us denounce, and spurn, and repudiate,
always and everywhere, this most fatal foe to our
manhood and our safety, and let us assure the
world that there Is co man Jn Massachusetts or

THE REBEL RAIDS $tOX CANADA.
InterceptedLctter from C. C. Clay Tho Raid on
St. Albans-Piracy on the Lakes Hevolt in
the Xorthwest The Rebels n Canada to the
Rebels in Richmond. -'
Correspondence of the Boston Advertiser.
WAsmxoTojr. March 24. I860. The fol
lowing letter was found on a person captured
in the Department of Washington in the cany
part of 1SG-L He turned' outto he a mes
senger from the rebel emissaries in Canada
to the Richmond authorities, trying to make
liis way through our lines into Virginia.
This letter, although not signed by the
writer, has since been fully identified as the
production of Clement C. Clay, Jr., who is
now sharing with JcfL' Davis the hospital!
tiesofFortress Monroe. The complicity ofthe
writer, thus established by it, is understood
to be the real ground for Mr. Clay's pro
2yr. Catiiekixe's, C. W., Nov. 1, 18G4.
Silt: Ton have doubtless learned through
the press of the United Slates of the raid on
St. Albans, Vt., by about twenty-five Con
federate soldiers, nearly all of them escaped
prisoners, led by Lieut. Bennett II. Young;
of their attempt and failure to burn the
town, and of their robbery of three banks
there of the aggregate amount of about
$1SO,000; of their arrest in Canada by
United States forces, their commitment, and
the pending preliminary trial.
There are twelve or fourteen of the
twenty-five who havo been arrested, and
who are now in prison at Montreal, where
the trial for commitment for extradition is
now progressing. A letter from Hon. J. L.
M. Abbott, tho leading counsel for the pris
oners, dated Montreal, 28th October, says to
me: "We" (prisoner's counsel) "all think it
quite clear that the facts will not justify a
commitment for extradition under the law
as it stands, and we conceive the strength of
our position to consist in the documents we
hold, establishing the authority of the raid
ers from the Confederate States Govern
ment. But there is no doubt that this au
thority might be more explicit than it is, in
so far as regards the particular acts com
plained of; and I presume the Confederate
Government will consider it to be their duty
to recognize officially .the acts of Lieutenant
Young and his partyyand will find means to
convey such recognition to the prisoners here
in such a form as can be proven before our
Courts. If this were accompanied or fol
lowed by a demand upon our Government
that the prisoners be set at liberty, 1 think: a
coed effect would be produced ; although.
probably, the application would not be re
ceived by the authorities. Ihere will be at
least a fortnight's time, and probably more,
expended in the examination of wincsses,
so that there will be plenty of time for any
thing that may be thought advisable to be
done in behalf of the prisoners." I met
Mr. Young at Halifax, on my way here, in
Mav last. He showed me letters from men
whom I knew by reputation to be true friends
of (state rights, and therefore of Southern
independence, vouching for his integrity as
a man, his piety as a Christian and his loy
alty as a soldier ot the boutli.
After satisfying me that his heart was
with us in our struggle, and that he had suf
fered imprisonment for many months as a
soldier of the Uonfeuerate states, trom which
he had escaped, he developed his plans for
retaliating some of the injuries and outrages
inflicted upon tho South. I thought them
feasible and fully warranted by the law of
nations, ana therclore recommended him
and his plans to the Secretary of War. He
was sent back by the Secretary of War with
a commission as second lieutenant to exe
cute his plans and purposes, but to report to
Hon. and myself. We prevented his
achieving or attempting what I am sure he
could have done for ,us, and which may be
fully explained hereafter. Finally, disap
pointed in ins original purpose, and in all
the subsequent enterprises projected, he
proposed to return' to the Confederate States
via Halifax, but passing through the New
England States and burning some towns and
robbing them of whatever he could convert
to the use of the Uonfeuerate government.
This I approved as justifiable retaliation.
He attempted to burn the town of St.
Albans, Vermont, and would have succeeded
but for the failure of the chemical prepara
tions with which he was armed. Believing
the town was already fired in several places,
and must be destroyed, be then robbed the
banks of all the funds he could find,
amounting to more than $200,000. That he
was not prompted by selfish or mercenary
motives, and that he did not intend to con
vert the funds taken to his own use, but to
that of the Confederate States, I am as well
satisfied as I am that he is an honest man, a
true Eoldier and a patriot ; and no one who
knows him will question his title to this
He assured me, before going on the raid,
that his efforts would be to destroy towns and
farm houses, not to plunder and to rob: but.
he said, if after firing a town he saw lie could
tauc hums Irom a bank or any thing which
might mllict injury on the enemy, and ben
efit his own Government, he would do so.
He added most emphatically, that whatever
he took should be turned over to the Gov
ernment or its representatives in foreign
lands. My instructions to him, oft repeated,
were "to destrov whatever was valuable, not
to stop or rob; but if after bring a town, he
conld seize and carry offmonev, or Treasury
or bank notes, he had a right to do so, upon
condition that they were delivered to the
proper authorities of the Uonfeuerate states.
That they were not delivered according to
his promise and intention, was owing, I am
.sure, to the failure of his chemical com
pound to firo tho town, nnd to the capture of
himself and men on the Canadian soil, where
being surprised and overpowered by supe
rior numbers from the United States. On
showing me his commission and instructions
from Mr. Seddon, which were of course
vague and indefinite, he said he was author-
ized to do all the damage ho could to the
enemy in way of retaliation. If this be true.
it seems to mo the Confederate States Gov
ernment Bhould not hesitate to avow his act
was fully authorized as warrantable retalia
tion. If the Government do not assume the
responsibility of this raid, I think Lieut.
Young and his men will bo given up to the
United States authorities. If so, I fear the
exasperated and alarmed people of Vermont
will excite cruel and summary vengeance
upon them before they reach ths prison of
The sympathies of nine-tenths of the
Canadians are with Young and his men a
majority of all the newspapers justify or
excuse Ins. fct as merely retaliation, and
they desire only the authority of the Con
federate States Government for it to resist
their extradition. The refusal of extradition
is fully warranted by the like course of the
United States in many cases cited lately in
the Canadian papers, which I cannot now
repeat, but which I can readily find. The
refusal of extradition would be of salutary
political influence, it is thought, both in the
British Provinces and in England. I can
not now explain why. I trust, therefore, for
the sake not only of the brave soldiers who
attempted tho daring exploit, which has
caused a panic throughout the United States
bordering on Canada, and the organization
of forces to resist, as well the arbitrary and
tyrrannous order of Gen. Dix touching the
coining Presidential election, but for the
sake of our cause and country, that the
President will assume tho responsibility of
the act of Lieut Bennett H. loung, and
that you will signify it in such form as will
entitle it to admission as evidence in the
I send the special messenger who bears
this that your answer may be bs ought back
bv him within ten days, or by the 11th inst.
The final judgment can and will bo post
poned for the action of the Confederate
States Government as bng as possible, cer
tainly for ten days.
I avail myself of this opportunity to bring
to your notice the case of Capt. Charles II.
Coie, another escaped prisoner of General
Forrest's command, who was taken about six
weeks since in the Michigan, (the Federal
war steamer on Lake Erie,) and is charged
with an attempt at piracy, (for attempting to
capture the vessel,) with being a spy, &c
The fact is that he projected and came very
near executing a plan for the capture of that
vessel and the rescue of the prisoners on
Johnson's Island. He failed only because
of the return of the Captain (Carter) of the
Michigan a day sooner than expected, and
the betrayal (in consequence of Carter's re
turn) of the entire plot. The only plausa
hie ground for charging him with being a
spy is that he was in Sandusky, on Johnson's
Island, and on the Michigan frequently,
without having on his person the Confeder
ate uniform, but wearing the dress of a pri
vate citizen. M and I have addressed
a letter to the Commandant at Johnson's
Island, protesting against his being treated
as a spy for tho following reasons: "That
he was in the territory of the United States
as a prisoner against his consent; that he
escaped by changing his garb; that he had
no Confederate uniform when he visited
Sandusky, Johnson's Ihland and the Michi
gan; that he did not visit them as an emis
sary from tl.e Confederate State; that what
ever he conceived, he had not executed any
thing; that he had conveyed uo information
to his Government, and did not contemplate
conveying any information to the Govern
ment." His trial has been postponed. I
know not -why or for frb3t time. His ex
change should be postponed and notice given
that any punishment inflicted, on him will
bej retaliated upon an officer of equal -rank.
He is a very brave' and dariug soldier, and
patriotic, and deserving the protection of his
I wrole to you' on the 14th June, to the
President 2Gth of June, and to you on the
11th August and 12th September last, 1
trust you received those letters. Mr. ,
(who I see has gotten into the Confederate
States,) has doubtless explained thing3 here.
I have never received a line from you or any
person, excepting my brother at Richmond.
I have not changed the view expressed in
my former communications. All that a large
portion of the Northern people, especially
in the Northwest, want to resist the despot
ism at Washington ii a leader. They are
ripe for resistance, and it may come soon af
ter the Presidential election. At all events
it must come, if ourarmies are not overcome
and destroyed or dispersed. No people of
the Anglo-Saxon blood can long endure the
usurpations and tyrannies of Lincoln. Dem
ocrats are more hated by modern Republi
cans than Southern rebels, and will be as
much outraged and persecuted if Lincoln is
re-elected. They must yield to a cruel and
disgraceful despotism or fight. They feel it
and know it.
I do not see that I can achieve anything
by remaining in this Province, and unless
instructed to stay shall leave here by the
20th inst. for Halifax, and take my chances
for running the, blockade If I am to stay
till spring, I wish ray wife to join me, un
der a flag of truce, if possible. I am afraid
to risk a winter's residence in thb latitude
I need not sign this ; the person to whom
it is addressed can identify me; but I sec
no reason why your response should not be
signed and sealed, so is to make it servicea
ble as suggested in respect of the St. Albans
raid. A statement ofprisoners' connseUias
been sent by way of Halifax and Wilming
ton, but it may never reach you, or not in
time for the deliverance of the prisoners.
This is my chief reason for sending this by
one I think I can trust.
Please Tenly promptly and start the mes
senger back as soon as possible. He will
explain the character of his mission. Send
