Friday Morning:, May 4th, 1877.
The war between Paissia and Tur
key m getting serious. Two bis bat
tles are reported to have takcu place
before Kars. The Russians forces are
concentrating before Lars. England
and Austria are becoming restless, and
it is not unlikely that all the great
powers of Euroie will be involved in
one grand Armageddon war before it
William Ganawav Bhowxlow,
ex-Governor and ex-Sena tor, is dead.
As an editor he was very bitter, and
as a politician he wa.i a violent partisan,
but as a neigiibor and friend he was
kind, tender and true. The effects of
his public life were far from good, but
now as he lies dead we will only re
member that he was as honest and
brave a man as God ever made, and
neverdeeeived either friend or foe; and
never feared the face of man.
The Nashville Banner, a brave little
paper during the Presidential canvass,
opposes Mr. Post Master General Ke y's
new party movement, and denies his
assertion or insinuation that the South
ern people are unjust to the negroes.
It is all the more gratifying to see this
position, because it, as well as the
American, had made the impression on
the public mind that it was afraid to
say on which Hide it Mas. Asa first-class
oyster, tho Nashville American is a

Tjik Gallatin LLcaminer sjieaks
of burning Gov. Porter and the Su
preme Court in effigy, as "mob law."
The editor's idea of mob law is about as
falseand idiotic as his conception of the
duties of a journalist, or the facts con
nected with the case he was eonimen-
tingupon. It was precisely such balder
dash as he writes that influenced the
Supreme Court to defeat the law in its
course. It was to defend the law in
its majesty, and to prevent mob law,
that we deplored the escape ofThom-
asson irom tlie late wuicu nis crimes
merited and the law inflicted.
The name of Judge W. F. Cooper
has been suggested for the Supreme
Court of the United States. We urge
no appointment even of a judicial
character, by Haj'es. The Democratic
Senate, however, is the real pioiut
ing power in this case, and they stand
in a position to demand the appoint
ment of a great lawyer, and not a mere
shyster. Judge Cooper is the greatest
lawyer in America, and would adorn
the position of Chief Justice. Jie has
a geinus for the law, and has devoted
nearly half a century to niakiug him
telf a pure lawyer. If Tildeii had not
Leon cheated out of the Presidency
W. F. Cooper would havo been placed
on the Supreme Bench. The Demo
cratic Senate may bo able to force his
The death of the once famous Tar
fcon Browiuow, some time Governor
of Teuucosee, and latera United States
Senator, caused, we are told, universal
sorrow in Knoxville, where he lived.
.Like many other violent ioliticiauB,
tliis jMXr old partisan was a- kindly man
at heart. serviooablu as a friend or
neighbor, and personalty liked of all
men. Uis Li IV- v a a s-utuiv one. lie
made a great liguie dining a great pe
riod, and ruled for a wiiiie like an au
tocrat. It is much to Lis credit that no
suspicion of diahoue!y cv.-r attached
to his character. "Whilst the public
were being robbed of luiliiuus ids hands
were clean, ami there is no evidence
that he possessed any guilty knowledge
of what was gohig on. His elevation
to power was not a happy circum
stance, either to his people or lumeelf;
but the lires of hate long ago died out
of the popular mind, and the grim vir
tues of the battle-scarred veteran of the
pulpit, the hustiugs and the press will
receive full justice of those who survive
him. Cum it r-Juurna!.
In a supplement we furnish our read
with the speech of the 'Hon. W. C.
WhittUorue, delivered at Franklin, last
Saturday, to the people of Williamson
couuty. Jt is au exceedingly able and
graphic picture of the momentous
events that took place at Washington
last winter, and we trust noue of our
readers will tiermit its great k-ngtli to
debar them from reading it. No man
can read it without feeling that its con
clusions are correct. It is quite refresh
ing to see one Democratic leader in the
tate not afraid to speak out and place
himself on lirm ground, when every
thing looks uucertain and dangerous.
Our leaders are.actually crouching down
in silence to avoid public committal on
the politics of the day, and Gen, Whit
Ihorue's bold and manly utterances, an
well as hi able and irrefutable argu
ments ami fact", mark liim as a great
leader, and will meet a hearty response
in the hearts of the masses, of whom
lie is the truest, list representative in
America. We ask ourrcadenagaiii to
read this speech and preserve it for fu
ure re fe re uce.

To the Editor of the Herald aud Matt:
While I admire the Nashville
American as a new paicr, allow me to
express, as a citizen of Maury county
andl Indicve, I express the senti
ments of all our (rood citizens, how-
terly devoid oC good sense I regit rd its
brict editorial in to-day's paper, where
in it charges the citizens of this town
with a great crime, and seek to place
them on a level with a mob of lynchers
in Stewart county, because, forsooth,
our citizens last night thought proper
aud did in public exercise their right as
freemen of this State, to quickly and
orderly, but determinetUy, censure
their public servant the Governor
and four members of tho Supreme
Court, for their failure to discharge
manfully and fearfully, their duty as
officers, entrusted ivith the dearest and
most valued rights of the people of this
commonwealth. Is it possible the
editor of the American, can be so fool
lsh or bo beuigt .ted, as really to think
the people of this town, or of any other
pari oi this state, or ot any otner ."Mate
of this Union, have not the right to
gather themselves together, and ve
hemently if occasion in their minds so
require denoiuiee avif act of ai pub
lie servant, which they deem to be
subversive of theiriiiherent rights, and
of good Government? In the meeting
here last uiirut there was no impeach
inent of the iuteurrity of character, but
of theofficials named sentiment of the
ieople seeming to le, that there existed
a decided want of brains or firmness oj
decision or both in said high olhctals
and they expressed themselves accor
dingly. In conclusion, let me say, I know
not what instigated the lynching in
Stewart county, but we all know, that
"self defense is the first and greatest
law of human Nature," that a free and
heroic people always have risen in
their rights to execute the laws of the
land when her public servants proved
themselves unworthy or imeuuRl to
the task, and we have faith in leiieving
that such will not only always le the
case, but that it is riaht.
In this act of commuting Thom-
niasson's execution, we feel indignant,
.lH'cause we know, a well as
we can know anything, that
Thomasson is a most foul and
mean murderer proven so, (des
pite all the roo numerous safeguards
thrown around him by our laws, and
despite all the ingenuity of wily coun
sel for the defense) by the verdict of
twelve sworn and honest jurymen
whosaw the witnesses and heard their
testimony on the stand, instructed and
charged by an incorruptible judge;
proven so by a dehwrate and leuglhy
considcration of his case by a Supreme
Court, who unanimously pronounced
him guilty, and who, alter reques
ted, refused to, recommend him
to mercy, We feel indignant Ijc
cause we feel there is no certainty- of
iustice at the hands of our present
supreme Court and ttovernor, whom
we have honored by placing so high
in authority, and 1 litis, feeling indig
nation, and contempt, we havequietly
expressed it, and have no apologies to
oiler for so doing.
