Cotton and TobaccaFactors
Hie above is a fair specimen of the
baso fabrications of which the Radi
oals are daily guilty. We were born
and raised in eight of Mr. Jefferson'i
residence and know him to have been
a large slaveholder. We bavt heard
hiin discuss political questions, and
his oldest and most inteligent
neighbors discuss his opinions, but
never heard from him or them,
word tending to show that his glitter
ing sophism about the equality of
man, was designed either to embrace
the negro or to apply to whites, in
the-loose sense given it by abolitio
demagogues. That he was ft larg
slaveholder, to the hour of his death
is commentary cnougS upon his own
interpretation of his own language
As to his having voted with, or bar
ing been voted for by negroes, 1 it is
a lie too gross to morit any other no
tice than a flat contradiction. If
negro ever voted in Virginia, until
the Radical Congress inaugurated the
present reign of tyranny, we would
like to see tho proof.
Mr. Jefferson, unfortunately, was
addicted to the utterance of short
pithy aophisms, caloulated to mblead
by their resemblance to truisms; but.
which, when subjected to philusoph
cal analysis, prove worthless because
they prove too much. But all the
abolitionism to be found in his writ
ings and practical life, is concurrence
with tho then prevailing idea, that
slavery was a curse to the whites, and
his advocaoy of emancipation waa
with the sole view of benefitting the
white man. . To charge him with
Radicalism, in the present mean
ing of the term, is to degrade him
from his high position as a patriot
and sage, to a level with the vapid
fools or sanctimonious hypocrites or
designing villains who constitute the
distinctive grades of Radicalism.

The following is from the 'Reveries of

"A poor man without some sort of relig
ion, is, at best, a poor reprobate, the football
of destiny, with no tie linking blin to Infin
ity ana tue wonderous eternity ; aud is errn

The Offspring of ft Prescriptive Enle,
The Nashville Banner, of the 17th, says :
If the ortraiileatioa which goes by tbe name
of the Euklua Ktan has any tangible exis
tence t ftll, It is extremely limited, and Is
certainly of very recant origin' Not being
member of It, nor having any other means
or ascertaining lie mysteries than sucn ae
are to tbe pubUo, we are nnabis to discourse
very learnedly of its strength or its purposes.
As far as we know it has no political aigaia-
cance. As far as It has appeared it has acted
on the defensive. But whatever may be iu
extent, It is la no sense of tbe word partisan.
It seem to be tbe inevitable result of. perse
cution, of prescriptive Jaw nnjilstly execu
ted, ot raring bodies or mercenaries and
banditti legalised aud describtd as "loyal
militia," of stuffed ballot boxes, packed ju
ries and petty official tyranny. , If it wanted
a juaiflcation; patent enough in Its itself, It
might point to the secret leagues la erery
neighborhood where a tew irresponsible white
men gather together a great many ignorant
negroes and equip tbein for ft tegular, com
pact, line assault upon the properties and lib
erties of their fellow-citizens; where the rio
tous are made more vengeful by tho coarse-
est stimulants; where the half-witted receive
additions to the load of prejudice and slander
tney already carry about loom pillar to posr,
where Uie timid art threatened with death
and kindly seduced with promises of con fie
cation; where iutrigue for office, regardless
of the eomnteti good or any higher motive
tnaa mat wtucu inspires lojr ambition, sports
with the most onerous, tbe most undiscip
lined, tbe most passionate, the moat combus
tible, the most corrupting instinct of tbe
ftuman Heart. It might point to tbe friebu
fill increase of negro license. It might point
to tbe partwaa obaraoter of tbe judicory. 1 1
might point to the wholesale pardons tsssued
in ins name and by tbe authority of polit
cal committee. It might point to tbousaod
and on acts of partisan atrocity which bare
poisoned the very elements, rendering the
homes and hearthstones, the wires) and chil
dren of tbe people lees and less secure.
These it might urge in behalf of a secrecy,
which nothing but desperate peril, and the
impossibility of obtaiuing legal protection
and redress, could palliate. For self preser
vation u a law ot nature aud. lies at tne
foundation of all law.
Radicalism, la Teueeesre has been from
first lo but one steady, one unyielding, one
perpetual despotism. Its only consistency
ha been its prescriptive nature. W hare
combalted t openly and fairly with tbe ftea
Weapons common to political usage, and it
has plead our opposition as excuse for its
violence. We hare withdrawn that opposi
tion and sufl'ered it lo go oa without any ag.
grurating cause to prick it into anger, asking
of it only good government, and it ha net
abated its rigor by one shade lea of malice.
Tbe Legislature, which has just adjourned,
dia no act to mitigate the horrors of the
party rale which its predecessors established.
It did no act to lighten the hardens of t xa-
Uons wbiuh press down on an impoverished
people. It did no act of lenity or tolerance
desingned to propitiate the on traced temper
of the community, or contribute toft state of
real peace. It presented throughout tne
same hostile countenance which has glared
upon us for the last three years, lnoreaaing
tbe taxes, making the law more ptoscrip
tlre, and using the intemperate argument
and language of revenge. ,. ...
If this train of1 circumstance, with tbe
almost hopeless ennditlaa of affair it has set
up, beget in insolated neighborhoods where
tne evus or wmcb we complain are felt more
keenly and personal safety is more ei posed, 1
the existence of secret, organized bodies op
erating for self-defense, who can wonder J
we may regret the fact, we may deplore the
cause, but we cannot be surprised. Nor can
we close our ere either to tbe fact or tbe
cause; and, though this Kuklux Klaa is yet,
in our opinion, a shadow rather than a sub
stance, though it is limited in it circle of ex
istence, it i the product of the nature of
things, and will Inevitable strengthen and
expaud if Uie producing cause I not removed
of softened. It is of no as for us to writ
article against if, and urge moderation when
there is uo moderation exhibited on tbe other,
side. For six months w hare-lent our sole
influence in bobalf of peace. We ore aa
much disinclined for war now as ever.. We
are a ready now to unite with Ihe Stale
Government io an effort to avert strife as w
were last fall, when we. invoked a "popular
armistice." But We say frankly, what any
sober-minded man of either party can see
plainly enough, that unless some effort is
ruilaa by the dominat parly in the direction
of better understanding, we can not escape
trouble. Suppose you Cull oat your militia,
suppose you get General Tuomas to send
federal troops here, one this sweeten the
temper of the times T It may enable yon
lo carry the State in the Presidential elec
tion, but you are bound to do tbut anyhow,
for you won't let anybody rote except Radi
cals, and even then you const your votes
yourselves. It I not certain that tbe Demo
crat will run any ticket at all against your
machine. Therefore, since you are safe so
far, why not make an effort to keep the
peace T The militia wool doll, tederal
Hoops won't do it. Tbey will ouly enlarge
and inspire the Kuklux Klaa. Ibey will
ouly make it more deeiierate. The effects of
oppressios are neverfailing, and the people of
Tennessee bare all the atrength and a.l the
weakness of people sought to be degraded
but not yet ul)jugaled. While there is still
time somethiug yet may be done, and we
make this appeal with all candor, and not
unkindly, to such of the Radical leaders
among us at are within the reach of reason
and coin iu on sense.

To the Editor of the Times!
Under this caption w fad the frro pa1
Grant for Presldident V Cou'd thl ne. ' graph aubjolned In the Memphis ATalaacbor
Bos. Caaaea, W.-Momak, member ot
Congress front Ohio, delirered aa excellent
speech on impeachment, on the 19t!i ultimo.
We quote the following pithy and Incisive
paragraph. Every sentence is a center shot:
Prefer article of impeachment against the
Chief Magistrate of the Republic, and for
what 7 lias he arrested and imprisoned cltl
tens without trial and without defense T
be has, tbea I will vote for the articles of
Impeachment. Has be strnrh dewn tbe lib-1
erty of tbe press? If lie baa, then I will
vote for the article of Impeachment '' Has
he denied to ten States of the Union their
rightful representation in CougressT If be
has, than he is guilty of ft flagrant violation
of the Constitution, and should be arraigned
and published, and I will rule for tbe articles
of impeachment Has be established abso
lute military despotisms over the State of
the South on the pretext of conferring upon
them republican form of government T For
if he has, then bo is not ouly a ruthless vio
lator ot the Constitution, but tyrant, and
be deserves to be Impeached, and I will vote
for bis Impeachment. Has he disfranchised
a majority of the white race In the South lu
order to establish negro despotis-n over white
men, women and children, loyal and disloyal
alike 7 For if he bus, then be bas not only
trampled upon the Constitution, bat commit
ted a crime against nature fay reducing the
highest race In the world to the servitude of
the lowest and thereby sought to bar ba rise
and utterly destroy nearly one-third ot Uie
enUre Union; for, if guilty of so great a
c.-lme, he deserves to be imjieacbed, and 1
will vote for tbe articles or tuipsacuuienl.
Stagnation la New England.
There I much more (uttering among the
laboring classes of New England, especially
the factory operatives, than 1 generally sup
posed at the South. A laboring man wri
ting from Worcester, Mass., recently , says:
"Hundreds of persons are out oi work in
this city, and w are no exception to the gen.
era! rule through the country. 'Our large
factories aud wills in Ibis section, fur we are
strongly devoted t manufactures, are either
still or runulng on fractional tiui. If this
slate of thing eonlinuae much longer, the
result will beteartul. J ue working eiemeui
enters largely iuto Ihe population of New
Kuglaud swale, and tbey axe, a ft class,
dapeudrpl oa their weekly wage a a moans

It has been my privilege to know General
Grant Intimately since be first assented

Valley, when he mad hi headquarters in
Carlo; and what I am about to tat of bint,
his neons, cbaractevand conduct, I shall sub
stantiate by tlie statement of gentlemen
well known In thrt city, and whose word
will not be disputed, if they may be asked
whtther my statements may be true or false.
Not only will all I write be corroborated by
the person I (hall name, Radical though
they may be, but (cores of the rnost respecta
ble citizens of Cairo will respond most un
equivocally to the accuracy of my allega
tio. That sobriety was the exception and not
the rule of General Grant's conduct while lo
cated at Cairo, I fact too well known to
need confirmation; bnt Individual Instnnc s
of beastly drunkenness nte nut of rare oc
currence. I wilt mention two or three
which fell under my personal knowledge,
and which I am reedy to verify on call.
On the 8th day of November, 1861, the
steamer Alec Scott started from Cairo on a
trip to Columbus, Ky. earring a flag of trace.
and General Grant, bis staff, and a few other
army oRtcer, ibe newspaper corresiwndcnts,
and some Invited gneet; When the boat
ranched ber destination, a bevy of rebel
otu:trs cam oa board, among whom were
General CheathaaV General Pillow. Oclenel
Kusk, and ft Uereral from Arkansas, whose
nam l do not remember when a general
drunk commenced, which was kept up until
law in the night after tbe Has: of truce
officers bad separated and - tbe Scott had rex
turned to Cairo, tv hen the boot reached the
wharf at Cairo, General Grant was In stfch a
beastly elate of intoxication that it was
deemed imprudent to take him to his head
quarter, over th City Bank, where his wife
was awaiting him, and b was escorted and
assisted to tbe St Cbwrle Hotel, where he
remained during the night '
When he arrived r the, hotel it was fottnd
that he was to drunk that considerable as
sistance was needed to enable bim to reach a
room on th second floor, and Captain R. B.
na ten, rest tjuarterinaeteii and Ilobert For
syth, general freight agent of tbe Illinois
Central Railroad one npon either side, and
each with (boulder under tbe General' arm
pit hoisted hiin up the stall to Captain
Hatch room. A hundred persons wit
nesses! Uiis scene, and loud andf many were
tbe expression uttered of censure and of
disgutt at the spectacle. About twelve
o clock that night Urant got musical, and an :
orderly was dispatched for the brigade hand
to come and serenade bim. The band soon
put in an appearance? and were about to com
mence playing, when Mr. Bedard and Mr.
Lanedeo, the proprietors of tbe hotel, at
tempted to itop thorn; but, on word being
taken to General Grant of the obstruction to
'the music, be, with drnnken and profane in.
decency, eeclared that he was commander of
that post, and be would have lb band play
when and where be desired. So Uie band pro
ceeded to the ball, outside the room where tbe
General waa rollicking in hi drunkenness,
and for a half hour played to drown the up
roar of the bell within.
A month later to a day, the same steamer
wa the rcenue of another gorgeous drank,
upon another occasion of a "flag of truce
visit to Columbus, when Grant became so
wretcnedly drunk that bis mends put nim
to bed, and kept tbe boat is tbe river until
he became sober enough tc be taken horn. .
But of hi most disastrous tpree that at
Fort lloneUon I shall not speak until an.
other time. If possible to Induce the Chica
go Tnbunt to tell the truth, I woula be glad
to bare Governor Broes relate what he saw
and what h said of the scene when General
Grant landed from his flag of true visit to
Columbus, just after tbe battle of Belmont,
wren be (Urant) was so drunk that he fell s

THE PB0F01NDEST SPEECH OF
At ft recent meeting, lo New Grenada,
South America, gentleman, sometime rcsl
deut lo lb United Stole, expressed the hope
that the adoption of American Institutions
would glace Columbia on lerel with the
great Republic of North America. lie was
himself summarily levelled by th following
speech from fully reconstructed Columbian.
W quoi from th Panama Star :
Mr. I' resident i la proposing that we
should adopt North American institutions in
order that we may rank amongst the most
civilized nations of tbe world, our friend is
merely repeating a vulgarism against which
1 do most solemnly protest. W e are repre
sented as an uncivilized people; but, sir, if to
do what tbs Americans have done, to lo be
rlrliillzed, then, w are civllzed; If to hare
doue It before tbein I to be ahead of them,
then we are at tbe head of civilization. For
what dthe Americans boast of. Tbey have
but recently abolished slavery; we hare
eoolished slavery long ago. They have Just
proclaimed the equality of races, and are try
ing to hold up the negro; we have piaelaimed
that equality aod DomI up lite negro long ago.
Tber have only fluished their first civil war,
rendered money scare, and made ft paper

The Spread of Tyranny.
W hare often remarked that ted Statel
cannot be held in military subjection, aud
tbe remaining tweuty-eeveo Stales under the
same government, at the same tin, preserve -their
liberties. -The thougel Is fusteuiag it
self on the Northern nrlud to its great alarm.
Senator Doollttle, in bis admirable letter to
tbe lata New York meeting lo protest asainsl -
tbe assault or Congteas upon .Uie Constitu
tion of th United States, illustrates lb peril
of Uie North. Th New York Htrald, re-
ferring to th bill of Mr. Stevens, fur enlorc
ing negro equality everywhere, make appus
iu us of a wou-known fable, and ssrys t '
"It is one more the old story of the tree
