On his resignation in 19o3 ho hectuno a
cotton planter in .Mis.issipi, living in
retirement till 18-13, when he began to
lakonti active part ' politic. His
first ollice was that of presidential elec

Iilk and Dalian. Ilia first Appearance-
in Congress was in December,
1815. While- in Congress tho First
Regiment of Mississippi volunteers,
recruited for tho war with Mexico
elected him their Colonel. lie prompt

for tli o sent of hostilities, over-taking
his regiment in New Orleans. At tho
Initio of Buena Vista ho won great

In 1817 ho took his Feat in tho United

tho Governor, and altcrward by tho
election of tho Legislature , '"
In 1S31, lie resigned his seat in tho

Early Life of President Andrew
Raleigh (North Carolina) cor
respondent of tho New Orleans Repub
J ndrew Johnson was hum in tho
upper fitory ot a kitchen attached to a
building known as ' Cnsso's Tavern,"
of which liia mother was tho house
keeper or stewardess, on tho night of
tho 29th day of December, 1808. A
daughter of Mr Casso, tho proprietor
of iho hotel wan inurried to a merchant
named Stewart in the early part of tho
evening and the dance iu honor of tho
wedding was progressing at tho time
he first saw light. Tho bride, who
lived to a good ago nnd died few years
ugo, dressed tho new comer in his
sw.ul tiling clothes. His father Jticob
Johnson, died four years afterward,
not from the effects of.nijurics received
in saving tho life .of a Iriend, as has
been stated, but from the result of dis
sipation. The family wero known as
"Rhaiukuttcr.V' which is, I suppose, a
corruption of tho word 'Itamsgato."
They were of English ' descent, and
came to this country as laboreru on u
military road winch wr.S built in 1752-'3-'-t
by Colonial Govoruor Lingon,
from Nowburn to Salisbury,
The original generation wero honest
bard working labo'-crg, but having no
money wherewith to buy stores, tho
secoi.d generation were degraded into
what is now called "piny woods poor
white trash," a class of people who
'have no principle, energy or manhood
about them, who liavu lived for gen
orations in tho tumble down log huts
built by their earlier progeiiilors, with
tho bare earth as atloor, and who have
no visiblo means of support. Mrs.
Johnson, his mother was a woman of
rare ability for-one oC hir class, and
through her influence Jacob Johnson,
I his lather, was induced to obtain lubor
in the city of Raleigh, nnd when ho
died she apprenticed her son Anuiew,
then about thirteen years old, to a mer
chant tailor named James Selby.
James Litchford, who is yet alive, was
then the cutler or foreman of the shop.
Ho says that Andrew was not a good
boy, and yet not a very bad ono, .tnd
tolls many intf resting incidents of his
"boyhood." Tho rest of his history is
well known to tho world at large, and
it is only necessary to ami that tho
people hero, nl though they have obse
quiously built a monument over his
fathers gravo, remembor only tho part
of which I have written alovo. They

Sheridan's Removals—Fits of
Arrogance by the Hunchback
—Spicy Disclosures by a Soldier.
[From the St. Louis Times, 13th.]
I have read editorials of tho Repub
lican press of the country on General
Sheridan's romoval of Govornor Wells
and others with nstonishmcnt, nnd lind
tlint they display a vast amount of
ignoranco os to tho actual condition of
things in tho Crcscnt City, whero I
hnvo lived for many months. They
tnko it for granted that any thing lit
tle Phil. Sheridan doe's is pro bono pub
lico. Now, eir, permit mo to tnnko a few
remarks as to the facts well known in
New Orleans. While General Sheri
dan is a brave little soldier iu tho ead
dlo, be is very deficent as an oxecutivo
officer. IIo has an ungovernable tern
per, which lie cannot or will not con
trol, and when his most intimate
friends express opposition to hispoiicy
ho will at once fly into a toworing pas
sion, and with fearful oaths order them
from his presence Ever since tho
July riots his tcinner has been unusu
ally Bour. On ono occasion, when a
deputation wo,s qent him by tho ox-
oilicers ot tho 1 cderal army residing
in New Orleans, ho cursed tho deputa
tion, spoko of Mayor Monroe, Judgo
Ablo, Attorney-general Herroii, nnd
other ox -Confederates as G d d d
6 b of b s, (aj I learn from the
writcn report mado by tho deputation)
and declared if these Radicals camo
int.) Ins ofllco ho would order his or
derly to kick them out. In this way
ho has given mortal offenso to both
parti cs, who in consequenco of these
insults a-oid him. This was tho be
gir.ingof tho quarrel between Gover
nor Wells and Sheridan, which has
culminated in Sheridan avenginghim
sclf upon tho Governor. -Lot me give
another instance of his overbearing,
bullying mode oi carrying a point.
Some time in September last, tho
special reporter or correspondents of
tho Now York 'press sent North some
dispatches, showing tho disorderly and
riotous proclivities of the colored sol
diers, who had organized to attack tho
St. Thomas pohco station. Sheridan
summop.cd'tho correspondents to his
office, nsked them why they bad sont
dispatched North that would give tho
public tho impression that a part of
(lis command wasnot under discipline,
and received tho answer that they bad
sent it becauso it was true, and wus
news. 1' rom ono cf them I learn that
ho admitted tho correctness of their
reports, but springing up, exclaimed,
"I don't care a G d d n if it is true t
If 3ou send such dispat'-hes vou can't
Rtay in my deprrtincnt." Ileudvanced
upon them with a horso whip, exclaim
ing: "Get out ot hero G d d n vou.
The whip camo down upon tho repre
sentative of tho Tribune, who boat n
hasty retroat before the wrath of tho
General "commanding." Sheridau
then advanced upon tho Herald's spec
ial, who happened to bo armed: ho had
seen Sheridan in these fits of passion in
the army, ana Mia heard him curso
his subordinate Generals, consequently
tie knew how to act.
Drawing up n loaded cano.helookod
at Sheridan until ho had nppronched
within whiping distance, when ho
brought tho "hero of tho Shcnandaoh"
to bay by n look nnd a very hostile
gesture. Phil, eaw murder lurking in
tho eyo of tho correspondent, who
maintained his hostile "present until
Sheridan astonished and cowed, "fell
back" to his seat, und tho correspon
I could Mr. Editor multiply theso
cases, andhll columns with particulars
ot similar outrages practiced by Sheri
dan upon citizens, Kx-fcderal officers,
and persons ol Confederate antecedents
but these will sulhce to show that,
much as ho is loved by tho soldiers and
people ol tho North, bo is totally unfit to
administer tho a Hairs of it department,
and his removal to tho far West, whero
be coiil.l indulgo his love for profanity
and lighting tho poor Indians, would
givo universal t-atiafaction toall parties
in Louisiana. -

The Prospect this Fall.
Not iu many years has thoro been
so fair n prospect of tho Democracy
carrying Ohio as thera is now. All
over the Stato the impression widely
prevuila that tho Radicals will be
routed, "horse, foot and dragoon," and
that both tho negro sufTrago amend
ment and tho Stato tickt, whieh
sustains it, will bo badly boaten. Wo
havo found, by experience, that such
premonitions, when they extonsively
prevail, aro tho best indications in the
world of a favorablo result. Tho
reaction so long looked for in tho
public opinion is coining fast, and the
day of Radical violence and ultraism
Is nearly over, Jta sun will : soon set,
not again to riso. Tho signs of hopo
are now bright in tho political firm

The Origin of the War.
Tho New York Herald gives ii
opinion as to tho origin cfthelato w&j-.
It ranks the present leadors oftbcRai
ical party with tho leading Secession
ists of the South. It draws no differ
or. co and makes no distinction between
tho treason- of Phillips, Greoloy&Co.
and that of Davis and Slidell. It
"Tho timo will come and we aro
now rapidly approaching it when tho
odium of a wicked war which has ccst
tho nation so many valuable lives and
such a vast amouut of treasure will to
laid at the right doors, nnd when tho
violent nhd vindictive AbolitiouiaU of
tho North, and tho violent and. vln
dictivo pro-slavery agitators and
seccssioisls of th South will be hold
up to general execration as the origin
ators of all tho nuticii's troublos. Tne
people aro beginning to understand
this well; nnd if Greeley, Gorritt Smith,
Ben. Wudo, Weudell Phillips, and men
of that stamp in tbe North, with Davis,
Mason, Slidell, nnd their fellows in thvj
South, could bo tried for treason and
sont out of tho country, it would bo
only what they deserve, and would be
entirely satisfactory to tho pooplo.
Tho foil", partisanship, recklessness
and violence of theso extremists on
both sides brought on tho war, and it
would davo been a good thing for tho
nation if they hud all boon eaught in
an early stage of the rebellion and
strung up in rows upon the same sour
applo treo." ,; '- " ' '
