like many other herosay assertions he

and to vindicate (Jen. Dupuy's asser
tion, it is proper for me to say that it is
true that Mr. Lambreth did apply to
me at Nashville, the evening he left
the city, for a free pass home, which I
refused him, because he had exercised
himself in denouncing railroad men as
corrupt and dishonest. If, as be says,
he bought a through ticket to Nash

reason was explained by Mr. Madison,
in a letter to (Jen. Washington of

was. The law, in New Jersey, having
fixed no time for closing tlio polls, they
were kept open in some of the counties
three or four weeks, each party still
hoping to get more votes.

000, one Isaac 11. Hawkins, an Ex
Congressman of the Republican party,
and chief of the tribe, on the (it It of
July, of thai year, at Paris, in West
Tennessee, sounded the key nolo of re
pudiation. Maj. W. J. Sykes ever on
Mm watch-tower to sound the toe-sin of
alarm, met Hawkins and charged him
then and tin id with im ellort to intro
duce this repudiation doctrine into tho
Democralis'. party for the purpose of
destroying il ; that it was the Trogan
horse of the Republicans, built for the
destruction of the Democracy. And
notwithstanding Maj. Sykes demolished
Hawkins and gave the tocsin of alarm
to the Democrat., Emerson Ftheridge
iu West Tennessee, and W. li. Stokes
in Middle Tennessee, took up the tune
and sang it all over tho Slate. Many
citizens of McMinnville remember as il
it had been yesterday that W. R.
Stokes made a masterly speech iu favor
of it in the court house here, where
only a low days ago be made another,
and exulted over the deed done. i. e.
the split in the Democracy and declared
himself boldly for the split,' that it was
jiit what ho had long desired to see
and hoped to "see it split clean out to
the end." Six years have elapsed and
we now see Maj. Sykes' prediction ver
ified. Isaac Hawkins is dead, but Wil
son is in his place proclaiming the doc
trino throughout Tennessee. Ethe
ridge has gone back to the Republicans
and John Savage is in his place iu West
Tennesseo, preaching the doctrino and
dividing the party. Stokes has gone
back to the Republican parly to be in
position to reap the fruits of his labors
in dividing the Democrats, while D. D.
Snodgrass has taken his place and is
carrying out botii Stokes' doctiine and
the purpose for which it was started.
M. M. Illicit has also nlmu'doncd it
to catch some of the spoils when the
Democracy fa IN, but Judge Williams
has taken his place.
Tho Republicans have puveocilod in
introducing their Trogan TitW, Sav
age, ilson, Snodgross nndv-rvillinins
have thrown ropes around its neck and
pulled into the I leinoci atic camp. Rut
they cannot destroy tho Democratic
ciladel without tho votes ot tho Wil-

i Democrats to save their patty by their
votes, and it is iu their power to de
