we learn thla morning that the error grew out
of the fact that he was placed In nomination
fo the ConTenllon by certain delegations.

"the editor of the Washington lUr mucin Is

editor has learned by this time that wo had
occasion to be "frightened." We were alarmed
to think that such a calamity should befall the
country; that Barlow and Belmont's gold, and

so much Influence In the country. Our only
hope now Is In tho Intelligent loyal people.

vailed at Nashville to-day, In consequence of a
rumor that an attack was to be made by Gen.

his force amounts to 6,000 or 8,000 men, with
ia guns.
When last heard from they were near Mc

It is nrobable that their intention Is to des

My ruiBNOs; I am sure you will excuse me
from making any extended remarks on this
occasion, because In the first place It Is not my
habit to address public assemblies, and Just now
I am rtturnlng from abrief pleasure trlnthrougb
your beautiful country, durlog which I have
purposely enjoyed recreation and thought as
little as iiosslMe of official or nubile business.
It will not ho amiss, however, for me to say
that I hae the fullest con a den ce In the ability
of the Qournmcnt to crush out this wicked
rebellion.
I feel that the dav Is not far distant when tho
despondency which now prevails will totally
nis appear, ana me people or tne norm win see,
e in mo neia sec, mat tne end is at nana.
Only untied cllurt Is needed to enable tho Gov
ernment lo move still more quickly. I refer to
this because I have lately wltnesed tho do
spondcDcy and been surprised at It. Why, I
have heard more grumbling at the North In
three da) s than I heard In our wholecampalgn
from (he Uapldan to Petersburg. Poople seem
to think that our armies are wearlug out with
out corresponding exhaustion of the enemv.
This is a mistake. Our resources lu the flold
are greater than his. We have three time his
home re sou re is untouched, and can loso far
more than the South, and still break down the
rebellion. I repeat, thcro Is no cause for de
spondency. Lol every citizen do all in his
