The Judge proceeds to slate that an examination
of the returns from eight election divisions showed
the following facts:
In the isixtb division of the Fourth Ward, the
number upon tho list of taxables was 20U; the uum
ber of voters returned 835 an excess of 1S5
In the seventh division of the Fourth Ward, the
numbi r ou the lit of taxable waa 234; the number

In tlia eighth divu-ien of the Fourth Ward, num

ters returned 456 an exefss of 185 votes.
In the 9th division of the Second vVard, the
number on list of taxables was 288; the number of
voters returned 611 an excess of 223 votes.
In the eleventh di vt sion of the the Second Ward,
the number on Iitof taxables was 136 voters; the
number of voters returned 323 an excess of 187
In the fifth division of the Seventeenth Ward,
the uumbeou list of taxables was 240; the number
of voters returned 480 and excess of 240.
! In the seventh division of the Seventeenth Ward,
the number on list of taxLbles was 184; the num
ber returned 294 an ezcesa of 110 votes.
In the eightii division of the Twentieth Ward,
the number on list of taxables was 164, the number
of voters retned 299 au excess of 135 votes.

It was proved that Mr. Mann received 288 of
these illegal votes, and Mr. Cissidy 1168. Deduct
ing these from the aggregate vote on each side, it
is found that Mr. Mann received a majority of the
legal votes cast of 518.
Judge Thompson then proceeds to tell us how
the elections were conducted:
In the eighth division of the Fourth, Ward, the
list of tanbles was not kept up by the Inspectors
Mr. Matthieu, an Inspector, was examined and tes
tified that the Judge, John McGonigal, took the
book at the opening of the poll aud kept it, by Mr.
McMullin's directions, w hile he, the Inspector, re
ceived tho votes. Of course no legal evidence can
be derived therefrom.
Votes were here also received from persons not
on the list, without their being sworn as to resi
dence; and, says the witness, Matthieu, the Judge
in some instances said the name was on the list,
aud when I looked, I could not find it. Not more
than ti-t or nine proved their residence during the
At this poll also occurred a transaction which, if
truly stated, ought to cover all parties concerned
with enduring shame. A more outrageous attack
on the purity of the ballot-box could not be con
ceived. D. M. Matthieu, the same Inspector, tes
tifies that upon a difliculty having ariseu within the
room, as to the reception of the vote of a man who
gave the name of Patrick McQuaid, an individual
who was at the window outside, called to Doruau,
the other Inspector, to put the ticket in the box.
lie said to the witness, "If you don't put that
ticket iu the box I'll knock your head off." After
which be ran into the house aud jumped over the
partition which enclosed tho election officers, aud
on to the table among the books and papers, oim
foot being ou the Assessor's list, lie threatened
Matthiou several times, fchook his fist at him, aud
eaid he would fix him before he left the polls. Af
ter he had beeu in a few minutes, one of the clerks
walked up and pushed the ticket into the box. The
intruder then got down from the table and walked
out of the door. Among honest men such a trans
action could not have been permitted to pass un
noticed, aud Inspectors who thus guard the ballot
boxes cannotexpect that their "sworu returns" will
receive any consideration from a judicial tribunal.
In the Niuth Division, of the Second Ward, Mr.
Costello, one of the Inspectors, says : The votes
on this list (a pupcr iu pencil) were taken without
examining the list of taxables, and as a reason, he
ays that the other iuapector put the ballots iu the
box so fast that he had no time to examine iu He
further said that the kind of ticket could be dis
tinguished from the heading, aud upon being asked
whether the particular heading ou ceruiu tickets
waa the cause of their being received so readily,
& dined to respond to the question. Alt t ie wit
nesses coincide iu stating, that in this division num
bers of voters, not upou the list of taxables, were
received without giving any residence or auy proof
whatever. Indeed Che whole testimony shows tint
the election was here carried ou in the moat reck

get votes into the bullut-box regaruloss of their
A number (amounting to 15,) of foreigners, Ital
ians, chiefly "ora grinders," or termed so, were
at this puli admitted to vote, under circumstances
that give the strongest ground for the suspicion that
these vot s, by a combination between the Inspec
tor and one or mora persons ontside, were receiv
ed, though known to te illegal several witnesses
tettibed that these men were brought up by ileury
llonaghan, a police oflicer, several at a time, and
upon their being challenged, alonaghau would pull
their pper (naturalization) out of At pocket; that
there appeared to be no more tbau two or three
papers lor all; and that, as fast as the papers were
given back, he put them iu hit pocktl, aud agaiu
produced them aa the nest came up. The atten
tion of Mr. Costello, the lucpector, waa called to
this at th time, aud upou his eiauiiualioti he Sys,

Americans! "Your Attention if you
It is possible that some of yon may be dis
couraged by the large majority cast against
Mr. Fillmore last year, and regard it as almost
hopeless to continue the struggle against sham
Democracy. Such feeliDgs as this may have
the effect of inducing yoa to stay at home on
the day of the election; neither giving the
cause the advantage of your vote, nor your
exertions in gett'iDg the votes of others. We
entreat all, if there be any such in our ranks,
who are thus discouraged, not to abandon
themselves to hopelessness, and decline to vote
or to work. Now is the time to labor with un
remitting diligence, and to use all honorable
efforts to redeem the State. This can be done,
if every American will only go to the polls.
Of this there can be no doubt. The masses
are every where satisfied with our standard
bearer, and are supporting hirn with alacrity.
In every neighborhood, all over the State, are
to be found men warmly advocating his elec
; tion, who voted ltst year for Buchanan. This

if we lut will it, and do our duty. But, there
is another thing which we desire to impress
upon your minds the varying character of the
political content in Tennessee Look at the
result of elections during the past eighteen
In 1839 the sham Democracy elected their
candidate for Governor.
In 1810 the Whigs carried the State in the
Presidential election by twelve thousand
In 1841 the opposition nearly cut down
the twelve thousand votes against them.
In 1844 Clay carried the State.
In 1845 the sham Democracy elected their
In 1847 the result was reversed, and the
Whigs carried the State.
In 1848 Gen. Taylor obtained a majority of
over six thousand.
In 1849 the sham Democracy, in the face of
the six thousand majority against them, made
a successful rally and won.
In 1851 the previous decision was reversed
and the Whig candidate for Governor elected.
In 1852 Scott carried the State.
In 1853 Johnson was elected over Major
In 185G Buchanan, aided by the cry of "no
chance," and the fraudulent use of the slavery
question, obtained a majority of over seven
These results show that there is no reason
why any party should be discouraged. By
proper exertions the State can be carried by
either party. All depends upon industry, and
activity. They exhibit another fact that,
except in one instance, the election immediate
ly following the Presidential contest, has leen
carried ly the party which was defeated in the
Presidential contest! It is our tues to sco

nothing is wanting but a full vote. Let us
Lave it. We ask you, Americans, to be sure
and vote. It is your duty, on all occasions,
to do this, but doubly is it your duty now.
Success will be the inauguration of a new era
it will give encouragement to our friends
every where, and 6ecure for the party through
out the Union, strength enough to overcome
all its enemies in future, whether sham Dem
ocrats or Black Kepublicans. We corjure
you, therefore, once more, to rally in all your
numbers, and the day will be oursl
Xlte 8tU C'ougretklouul District.
It behooves every American in this District
to be awake and active. The termination of
the canvass between the candidates for Con
gress, and the withdrawal of the Gubernato
rial appointments in the greater part of tho
District, has deprived many of the people of
an opportunity of hearing a full discussion of
the important issues of the canvass. This
is as unfortunate for the Americans as it is
fortunate for the democracy. Wherever the
issues have been fully aud fairly discussed, we
feel sure that mostdecidedly favorable impres
sions have been made in our behalf. Our
candidates for the Legislature in this District,
however, have made an able and faithful can
vas, aud we hope they have succeeded iu
arousing7 the public mind from an apathetic
6tate, and that we may have a full expression
of popular sentiment at the ballot-box. if
this can be had, we have no apprehension but
that the old Eighth, will come up with a large
ly increased majority over . the vote for Fill
more. A consummation so devoutly to be
wished for, should engage the devoted atten
tion and energy of every American in the Dis
trict. Only a few days more intervene be
tween this aud tho election. Let us, one and
all, devote these to rallying and bringing "out
our strength. Let all our little disputes and
personal preferences, if we have any, bo laid
aside f r the time, and one cordial and united
effort be made for the thorough vindication of
a glorious name, and the success ot equally
glorious principles. Let each American see
his neighbor, and urge the necessity of going
to the polls, and if there is any impediment in
the way let it. if possible, be removed. And
when at the polls, let your voice be for Amer
icans ..and Americanism, through un unmixed
and uumntillated ticket.
Why akalt the Adiulnlatradou be Sua
lainedl The Democracy have been in the habit of
urging that Mr. Buchanan and his administra
tion must be sustained at all hazards, else the
Black lltepublicaus would predominate, and
the Union possibly b dissolved. This Las
been a pominent reason to induce the people
of Tennessee to support the democracy iu tue
present coutest. But in what do they wish
Buchauan to be sustained? The most promi
nent and decidedly tbo.tuost important act of
hif administration, the olo in which the peo
ple of the whole country are most deeply in
terested, is his management of the afftirs of
Kansas. In this management be has developed
his hostility to the institution t f the South,
by putting in practice the uio&t odious princi
ples of juatter sovereignty and alien suffrage;
doctrit.es which the South, with one accord.
have coudeinueJ. They have denounced it aa
uivel odiou, as violative f every j riuople of
good policy and good government. And yet
Mr. Buchanan has not only avowed them ia
his Inaugural, it is true, iu equivocal term,
but etill he haa avowed the.j but through
his agents, is subjecting Ivans&s to their ora
tion, in open defiance of Southern iolt rests and
Southern opinion. At.d now the democrats
of Tennessee, whodespUe and havedetiounced
these dorlrtuc, whoaupported lr. Buchanan
under the mistaken belief that ha opposed
t'neui, are called ujon to fcopport and sustain
the AdmicU'ratlou ! We warned them of
their niiatake at the time and constantly, yet
they chose to disregard the waraing', aud are
now the witneetaa of tltir own e rrr and their
ba.e betrayal. We have co wiah aod tevtr
have Lad, to ctT.r a factious and unreasonable
opposition to tho Adminietration; but we Lave
opposed aud wl'.l cotUcua U oppo, these
dangerous and mischievous heresies, which
are fastening themselves upon the vitals of the
country through his and the instrumentality
of his missions, and threatening to overthrow
the most precious rights of American freemen.
Popular sovereignty, in its legitimate sense
and integrity, we have not opposed and will
not oppose; and in this we feel that we stand
with the conservatives of the country, both
North and South. But this doctrine has been
most shamefully perverted, and violated, by
Mr. Buchanan, and this fact is palpable to the
But it is still insisted that the black republi
cans will gain the ascendant if Tennessee ex
presses her disapprobation of her betrayer.
How this can be true, we must confess our
atter inability to see. The American party
of Tennessee, are as far from the black repub
licans, in principle and sentiment, as the de
mocracy can possibly be; and much further
than the squat ter sovereignty and alien suf
frage supporters of Mr. Buchanan. They
could meet with no more determined opposi
tion from the democracy than from the Amer
icans. This then is the merest clamor, used
only for the purpose, of misleading the people,
and to win them into the support of principles
which they utterly loathe and despise. Bat
what is the difference between the national
democracy and the black republicans in Kan
sas? The fact is not attempted to be concealed
that a majority of the sham Nationals of Kan
sas are as bitterly opposed to slavery, and
slavery extension, as Robinson orLane, or any
of their followers. A correspondent of the
Philadelphia Ledger, puts down the pro-slave
ry Nationals at 5,000, and the free-State Na
tionals at 7,000. The Washington Union
quotes approvingly from the Providence Post,
that: "TJiey the- free-state democrats) areral-
lying now, side by side, and shoulder to shoul
der, with pro-slavery democrats in support of
" their Governor, and even the Topeka party
' itself finds it impossible to make headway
" against tUrn." The only contest in Kansas
now is for power and plunder. The national
democracy is as thoroughly freesoiiized as the
Topeka free-soilers. There is no further dis-
ute anion? them on principle. Ibese are
stubborn facts which will not and cannot be
ii - .
denied. And these are the reasons, if there are
any, why Mr. Buchanan should be sustained
by the people of the South, and especially by
the people of Tennessee at this time! A pro
position so insulting to common sense, and so
derogatory to every impulse of personal inde
pendence is rarely to be met with, even from
the leaders of the democracy, for whom, it
would seem, that nothing ia too monstrous or
absurd to be urged upon popular credulity.
All we ask i, that honest democrats will look
to the facts, and vote their honest sentiments.
regardless of such party dictation.
Tlie Kanai Policy of tlie Admluis
The Charleston Mercury, the Richmond
South, and the New Orleans Bella, continue
to sound the alarm, in regard to the treason to
the South, which they detect in the Buchan
an-Walker policy in Kansas. The Mercury
of the 20th, says the following ia the policy
and programme to be carried out:
"At thi juncture it id thought expedient to ap
pease the North about Kaosas. The national Dem
ocratic administration have thought proper through
Gov. Walker, to purchase a temporary truce with
the Black llevubHc m pitrtu bu taking every step in
their poicer to make Kansas a Northern anti-slave
Stute. It N tliouff it i-xpedieut for tbe accomplish
ment of this great party move to incur tlie rifck of
driving off the Southern rights members ot the par
ty, trusting that the present indignation at the
treacherv may vent itaell and die out in the South,
having only served to strengthen mem in me vr ,
aud that the bouth. ultimately CHjulea ana Drow-
beat, will again be dragged along in I860 a willing
and enthuaiuruie victim ia praise of the great and
Doweiiul nutioual Democracy, who have again
aaved the Union albeit at the expense of tue
power aud safety of the poor South.
And this is the "policy and programme" of
Mr. Buchanan, whose election was invoked to
"save Kansas to the South" to make her a
slave State I What think you of it, honest
Democratic voters ot Tennessee, who, when
told last year of the coneiatent, anti-slavery,
fieesoil opinions of Mr. Buchanan, enunciated
in 1S19, reiterated npou the admission of Tex
as into the Union, and exhibited ou the ban
ners of the Democracy in Pennsylvania during
the Presidential canvass, in the significant line
"Buchanan, Breokenridgk and free Kan
sas!" chose rather to pin your faith to tlie
sleeves of those who were laboring to dective
yon into his support. Kansac, through tbe in
strumentality of Mr. Buchanan, is to be made
an ''anti-slace State.'''' What more could hate
leen done, if Fremont had le-en elected? Are
you prepared now to give a renewed manifes
tation of your confidence in those who have
deceived you? Are you ready to endorse the
Administration's efforts to make Kansas an
auti slave State? Are you willing to bring
upon yourselves the reproaches to incur the
scorn and contempt of the Southern Kights
Democracy of tbe South, who pride them
selves upon the independent epirit which gov
erns them, and who dare to confront their en
emy even though be be fortified in tbe White
House? Have you no pride of opinioD, no re
gard or the rights of your section of the
Union, no independence of slavish party dis
cipline, to prompt yoa to bold the administra
tion of your choice responsible, for the "trea
son to the South" charged upou them by your
own confederates in the election t
Tns IiK.NTBK'o Fkiknd. In the Legislature
of 1853 -4, tbe county of Hamilton waa repre
sented bj Mr. John Cowart. This gentleman
is now a candidate for the same position, be
ing the nominee of the sham democracy. There
are many persons in Tennessee who own no
lands themselves, but rent land from others
who are better off in that respect, expecting
to support their families and pay their rents
out of tho proceeds of the sales of their crops.
Mr. Cowart, exhibited bis affection f.r this
class cf persons, by introducing into the Lrg-
Mature i f which be was a member, a bill to
prevent them from selling their croj-t until titty
had Tirti paul tuir rents. The tiecs.-itie of
their families were not to be taken into ac
count. The interests of tbe landlord were to
be eupretne. Until they were satiafleJ, the
corn of the renter waa to remain in the crib,
the wheat in the barn, the bay and oata stack
ed in the field, th potato piled away in the
cellar. After he bad paid bis rent acd the
satisfied the landlord, then the " poor devil'
might sell his prodo.ee and buy hi wife and
little folks clothing, a little scgr, eotfve, and
halt, and other luxuries to them. What will
the democracy of Hamilton county aay to this
chapter in the legislative history of Mr. Cow

The Mechanics Lien. ,
We regretted exceedingly to see Gen. Harris the
other day descending from his position and attempt
ing to make capital by appealing to the prejudices
lue mecnanics. We understand it was tue first
time he has raade the noict in the canvass, and he
selected an audience iu Nasbviilf, where be suppas
ed many of that class were presenU His complaint
wag, that Col. Hatton, at the last session of the leg
islature, Voted aeainst. a certain hi!l nnnn th sub
ject of mechanics' lien. Now this bill provides that
in a. I cases where a mechanic boilds a nous?, he
shall have a lien on the land or lot on which the
bouse is erected for hi pay and this against all
the world. This is right, where the individual for
wuoui me nouse is built is the owner of the land,
and that is the law now, and was for years before.
But the effect and object of the bill was to provide
for cases when the land or lot was unpaid for, and
the original owner still hell a lien on it for his mon
ey. I he question was whether the first iidn should
eive way to the second? To illustrate it, suppose
fjm U.trTa u .7 rr
Uen. Uarns to be the owner of one hundred acres

of purchase. Ua agrees to eive him one thousand
doiUrs for it, and executes bis notes on time, and
Geti. Harris executes to him a title-bondL CoL
Hattou goes into nossession- and every one knows.
that iu such a trade a lien eVists on the land in fx-
vor of Gen. Iiartis for the Durchase money. Now.
in this state of things a mechanic comes along and
buildo for Col. Iiatton a house on the land with the
consent or concurrence of Gen. Harris, and after
no has done so, the bill ia question proposed to
give the mechanic a lien on the land for his pay.
ana enable him to Bell it, although Gen. Hams nev
er received a dollar for it. Now we leave it to any
man who has three ounces of brains, if such a law
would be right. It would be an outrage on the
rights of the settler. In such case let the mechau.
ic make his contract with the original owner, or
get bis assent and then all will be right. Such ap
peals are unworthy of a candidate lor Governor.
The bill spoken of above was defeated in
the House by a vote of fifty to fifteen. Thirty
of the thirty-seven democrats in that branch
of the Legislature voted with Mr. Iiatton,
Amongst them were Doxelson, of Somntr,
Fielder, of Dyer and Lauderdale, Harris, of
Washington, and Stovall, of Obion, who are
now democratic candidates for re-election. If
Gen. Harris really believed the vote of Mr.
Uatton detrimental to the interests of mechan
ics, so much so that they ought to oppose his
election, what has he to say to the vote of
these democrats? Reasoning by the inle
adopted by Gen. Harris, opposition to this
mechanic's lien bill wras a democratic measure,
and mechanics ought to condemn and oppose
the whole democratic party for its rejection,

Another act in the grand drama of Southern dis
