. F. W. Johnson-,
Axent and Operator,
The Morristown Gazette makes the
following reply to our editorial of two
weeks ago: r
Tho McMinnville Era, repudiator
crgnn, says the Chattanooga Times is out
for a coajition of Democratic and Ile-
Cublican State credit men. We have
een "out for" nothing of the kind.
We have Biroply suggested that those
who agree that the creditors of the
State should be treated honestlj regard
less of political bins, should hold a con
ference and see if tly can't join forces
and rescue Tennessee from disgrace.
The Era whines forth that "a split in
the party is threatened .1 iow-.tax meji
propose to organize themselves to de
feat this unholy alliance to thwart the
will of the people." This whimper
about "tho will of the people," is the
unmistakable badge of the public rogue.
Suppose the honest men should poll
votes enough to eleqt a Governor and
Legislature, who would settle the debt?
Would the rcpudiatorg still deal in their
horrible cant about the will and the
rights of the dear people ? . "
Thus the Chattanooga Timet dispos
es of the charge of the repudiation or
gan at McMinnville. We have a few
words on the same subject to say, occa
sioned by an editorial in a late number
of the Southern Standard, also pub
lished at McMinnville, but we are glad
to say of quite different views as to pub
lic honesty to those promulgated by the
New Era. The Gazette has never said
it was in favor of "breaking up" or
"breaking down" the Democratic par
ty in 1 ennessee. e have never at
any time even intimated such a thing
or dreamed of any such move. We
have said time and again that in our
opinion the very existence of the liber
ties of the people depended upon the
ultimate success of the National Demo
cratic party, and for this reason we
have at all times advocated the princi
ples and 'voted for the candidates of
that great organization. ''But so far as
Tennessee is concerned, we have said
that an honest settlement of our State
debt was a matter of far greater impor
tance than the electipn of any man as
Governor. We have said that this pa
per could not and would not, under
any circumstances, support a repudia
tor for that office or for the Legislature.
We have said in our opinion it woul
take all the State credit voters of al
political parties to defeat the repudia
tors, and for the purpose of effecting a
union of State credit men we havq siig-
gestej that there be a conference of
l f t Ml .a
enuincr men at iNusnvuie some time
lis spring or early iu the summer so
Kit some erganized plan might be
adopted to save the noble old State of
'ennessee from theshaine and everlast
ing disgrace of attempting to repudiate
debt which she had pledged her hon
or to pay. And we have said if such
conference was called and a candidate
for Governor presented to us upon
straight out State credit platform, w
would support him and urge his elec
tion regardless of previous party ties,
t seemcs to us to be the only course to
save us from ruin. If the Democratic
party is ever defeated in Tennessee the
result will be brought about by such
men as Savage and Marks men who
are willing to sacrifice the good name
of the State that tbey may ride into
The Gazette is anxious to see the
democratic party successful not only in
Tennessee but all over the Union. But
we are not willing to follow a set of un
scrupulous leaders into repudiation and
into dishoner. We must pay our debts
or be disgraced in the eyes of the world.
V e thiuk more of tin good narpe of
Tennessee than we do of the election of
any man Governor. So far as the
State election is concerned, the oue
great question s the settlement of our

that party steals the most which has
the chance. I had all the doors of in
formation opened to me. I talked
with high and low, Governors and
water-carriers, clergymen and laymen,
awyers, doctors, editors and philan
thropists, with the black and the white,
old residents of the South and new set
tlers from the North, and I found that
there have been the most persistent
and outrageous misrepresentations in
regard to the South by many of the
correspondents of secular and religious
journals and by men who, overbearing
and dishonest in their behavior at the
South have had information given to
them that their company was not desir
able. If a man go South and behave
well he will be treated well. There is no
more need of rigorous governmental es
pionage in Atlanta, Augusta or Macon
than there is in Boston or New York.
The present disposition of the South
has been so wrongly set forth that 1

from all the States of the South which
I visited, inviting immigrants thither.
The South is to rival the West as an
opening field for American enterprise
Horace Greely's advice to go West is
to have an addenda in.!"Go South."
The first avalanche . of ' population
thither will make their fortunes. It is
a nationnl absurdity that so much
the cotton of the South should be trans
ported at great expense to the North to
be transformed into articles of use. The
few factories at the South are the pio
neers of the uncounted spindles which
are yet to begin the hum of their grand
march on the banks of the Savannah,
AAppalachicola and the Tombigbee.
There stands Georgia, with its 58,000
square miles, and South Carolina, with
jts 34,000 square miles, and Alabama,
with 50,722 square miles, and North
.Carolina, with 50,704 square miles,
and the other States, none of them
with more than ten per cent, of their
resources developed. When will the
overcrowded populations of our great
cities take the wings of the morning
and fly to regions where they shall
have room to turn round and breathe
and expand and become masters cf
their own corn-fields or rice swamps or
cotton plantations or timber forests.

to the Government of the United
States. The South submitted to arms
certain questions, and. most of them
are submissive to the decision. There
is no fight in them. We heard much
about the fire-eaters of the South, but
1 if they eat fire they have a private
table and private platter of coals in a
private room. I sat at many tables
but I did not see anything of that kind
of diet. Neither could I see any spoon
or kuife or fork that seemed to have
been used iu fjre eating. Why 6irs, I
never saw more placid people some of

The fact is that this country has had
a big family fight, but let a neighbor
come in to interfere, and you know how
that al ways works. There never was" a
time when the nation was so thorough
ly one as to-day.- Would to God we
might more thoroughly appreciate it.
You see the whole impression of my
Southern journey was one of high en
couragement. The great masses of the
people are right. If a half dozen pol
iticians at the North and a half dozen at
the South would only die, we should
have no more sectional acrimony. It
is a case for the undertakers. If they
will bury these few demagogues out of
sight we will pay the entire expenses
of catafalque and epitaph, and furnish
enough brass bands to play the rogue's
march. But time, under God, will
settle it. The generations that follow
us will not share in the antipathies and
bellicoes spirit of their ancestors, and
will sit in amazement at a state of
things which made the national grave
yards of Murfree8boro, Gettysburg and
Richmond an awful possibility.
On a clear morning of week before
last we took a carriage and wound up
to the top of Lookout Mountain. Up,
up, up! We went out on the rocks
and saw into five States of the Union
scenes so stupendous and overwhelm
ing that you involuntarily take off your
hat, in the presence of the grandest
prospect on the continent. Yonder is
Missionary Ridge, the beach against
which the red billows of Federal and
Confederate oourage surged and broke
40,000 on one Bide, 65,000 on the
other, Yonder are the blue mountains
of North and South Carolinas. With
utmost stretch ot the eye, yonder see
Kentucky and Virginia. Here at the
foot are Chattanooga and Chickamauga,
the pronunciation ot whicn proper
names will thrill the ages with thoughts
of valor, and desperation, and agony,
Turn round on the tip-top rock of
Lookout Mountain and see the earth
works to the north and south, east and
west. Tjiere is the beautiful Tennes
see river curving and coiling all through
the plain in letter S after letter S, as if
that letter written on all the scene
might stand for shame that brothers
should go into such a massacre of each
other, while God and the nations look
on. I had stood on Mount ."Washing-
ton, and on the Sierra NeVadas, and
on the Alps, but I nevei1 saw so far as
that morning from the t6piof Lookout
Mountain.' Why, sirs! 1 4saw seven
teen years into the past and up the
sides of the mountain on which I stood
rolled the smoke of Hooker's storming
party, while the foundations of eternal
rock shook with the cannonade. Yes
the four years of internecine strife
came back, the events without chrono
logical order, and I looked in one di
rection and saw the navy-yard at Nor
ioik on nre, anu Dumter on nre, and
Chambersburg on fire, and Richmond
on fire, and Ellsworth full, and Baker
fall, and Lyon fall, and Bishop Polk
fall, and Stonewall Jackson fall, and I
saw hundreds of grave trenches filially
cut into two great gashes across the
land, the oue for the dead men of the
North, the other for the dead raeu of
the South, and my ear as well as my
eye quickened standing on Lookout
Mountain. I heard the tramp, tramp
of enlisted armies, and the explosion of
mines and powder-bolts and the crash
of fortification walls and the mortar
batteries, and the ''swamp angel,' and
the groan of dying hosts fallen across
the pulseless heart of other dying hosts;
and I looked still further till I saw on
the banks of the Penobscot,' and Hud
son, and Ohio, and Oregon, and Iloan-
oake, and the Yazoo, and the Ala
bama, widowhood and, orphanage and
childlessness, some in exhaustion of
grief and others stark mad; and said,
"Enough of the past have I seen from
Lookout Mountain. O, God, give me
a glimpse of the future." And that
morning it was revealed to me, and
saw another prospect from Lookout
Mountain great' populations moying
South and moving North, and I noticed
that their fooUteps obliterated the
hoof-P4Hiks of the war-chtugrr, and I '
saw the angel of the Lord of hosts
stand in theirYnptional cemeteries,
trumpet in hand, as tnoch 6 to Bay, "I
will wake these soldiarsffcmi their long
encampment at the r'ght time," and I
looked and I saw such snowy harvests
of cotton and such golden harvests of
Corn covering all the land as we have
not dreamed of ; and I saw that all the
earthworks were down, and all the war
barracks down, and all the gun carri
ages down, and the rivers wound
through the valleys, their letter S
seeming no more for shame, but 8 for
salvation; and wheu I found tlwit all
oiir weapons of war had been turned
into agricultural implements, I was
alarmed, and cried: "Is this safe?"
Then, standing on the tip-top rock of
Lookout Mountain, I heard two voices
which somehow slipped the gate, and
they sang, "Nation Bhall not lift up
sword against nation; neither shall they
earn war uny more." And I recog-
ized the two voices. They were the
voices ot two Christian soldiers who
fell at Shiloh; the one a Federal, the
ther a Confederate.
Dibuell, April 2
To Editor of tffetaudnid :
Kuklux at West Point.
On the doming of the Gth of April
Cadet Whittnker, the only colored ca
det at West Point, was found in his
room witli his feet and hands tied and
his ears cut, and he seemed to be in an
unconscious condition. The post sur
geon could not account for his seeming
insensible condition upon any other hy
pothesis than that it was produced by
fear, as his injuries were very slight,
and there wero no marks or brusies of
violence upon his person,
The proof before the court of inqui
ry shows that this cadet has been whol-
y ignored socially : he roomed by him
self, no one from the North or South,
republican or democrat, spoke to him
except when official duty required, he
never engaged in any sport with the
other cadets, and seems to have been
ostracized by republicans as well as
Investigation thus far has failed to
discover the perpetrators of the outrage,
and the question of greatest import
ance now is, whether he did it himself
or was it the work of others.
A note or letter of warning was found
in his room, and military methods of
investigation have been resorted to to
discover if possible the authors. Whit-
taker testified that three persons in
mask entered his room, tied him, slit
his ears, and struck him with a club.
Every cadet in the corps three hun
dred iu number has been question
ed jipon their honor as to their knowl
edge of the offense, and all have denied
it. Every oue has been compelled to
write iu his natural hand a letter or
sentence containing, without their
knowledge, every word composing the
note of warning, which Whittaker re
ceived, and these, along with the note
of warning, have been submitted to an
expert in handwriting, but every effort
to discover the guilty parties lias failed.
Fanatical republicans, in and out of
congress, are now demanding the abo
lition of the school, refusing to accept
the fact that laws, however averse, and
no matter by whom formed, can com
pel social equality. At least one-half
the corps of cadets are republicans, and
yet Whittaker says he was never spok
en to except when duty required it, and
he has no reason to believe he had a
personal enemy in the corps.
No Southern cadet has been charged
with the crime, and the suspicion that
Whittaker concocted the outrage is on
the increase, notwithstanding the trouble
of conceiving a motive.
We will advise our readers as to the
result of the investigation. We hope
for the credit of the school, it will not
be fixed on the cadets, and for the
credit of the negro that Whittaker did
not do it himself. '

A correspondent writing from Col
umbia to the Cleveland Herald, and
signing himself "Wild Bill," says that
he was surprised to find so many ex
pressions from democrats in favor of
Grant. There are many democrats
who thus express themselves and they
mean only this: They prefer Grant to
any other republican aspirant for the
reason that he will be more easily
defeated than any other candidate. If
"Wild Bill" means anything more than
this, he need not put himself to the
trouble of signing his name "wild" al
though it might be necessary to use tho
"Bill" to prevent the reader from run

and no true gentleman will expose a
lady to the pain of refusing an improp
er gift of this kind.
