n. :. mkim i:iiitir. SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 2, 1S02 Down Willi the toot! Months and months ngo lifts il liem a twelve monlhV the Fresiilcnt told liis country men that lip intrtirlrd as the l!x- eeutive of tlio RcpuMic "to yut his foot rfmni firmly." It was not to be the deli rate pat of the dancer's foot as lie glides along with cthcrial and noiseless motion bat rather the solid and pondrous stroke of the elephant's foot, which, would make the very ground tremble under its weight. Months have glided by the rr bellion still rages the deadly smell o battle is in the air, and blood and gun powder taint every breeze and thous ands of true hearts have become Htrango ly still and cold on the field of earmige Never, oh tievrr more shall wo look upon -ilic far.es of Baker and Lyon and Win throp, whose eyes darkened with the (ilm of death while they fought for the glori oiih old flap:. They offered up their lives to save the lives and li. erties of others many of whom, we fear, nro uot worth the precious sacrifice. And treason raes nnd traitors are insolent, and loyal men are insulted, plundered and exiled, one tho land groans in auguixh. It is the darkest niirht of time. Never was such a nation racked with such agony. Mr President, do you utill hesitato to strike our enemius? Do you blill dream of the possibility of conciliating men who tell you with sneers and furious imprecations that they will not be conciliated ? Han ish tho idle dream, and gird your loins for action. The rebels are making vigor ous, determined, earnest war, and we are hesitating and undecided. If we trille thus much longer the nation is lost be yond redemption, the stars and liars will lloat indeed " from the dome of the l'ede ral Capital," as Secretary Walker boasted and Toouihs will call the roll of his slaves in tho shadow of Hunker Hill Monumeut. If wo fuller now, at what point of degra dation and dishonor may wo hopo to stop? Why may not tho Nort west, the great Middles States and New England bow to tho unresisted guerrilla of Jell' Davis, who will ride over the whole conn try as triumphantly as tho army of Ma hornet? Tho Eastern papers aiu.uuiiee that (hero will be no complaint hence forward of a lack of vigor in proBecnling the war; the President has so, declared. We hope tho declaration may be verified I.et the "President put his foot down firmly." It is ungraceful as well as fatiguing to stand for montliB at a time, with one leg poised in mid air, like a shivering .rooster on a cold day. It would be a bad attitude for a historical portrait, for the President to be sketched with his legs forming a figure four, or the outl'iiu'iif a little A, with tho fore leg truncated. It would bo a bad atti tude, wo say, and we hope the President won't adopt il himself, nor allow any of his subordinate s to do so. We would rather see tho Cabinet, and all tho Ma jor and P.rigadit r Cicncrals, and soldiers in the army, represented as moveable staluaiywtukii.g their i'eet up anddoHu vigorously to tho music of tho Union. St. Vitus dance, would bo preferable to tho stand still policy. Timid men who at tho beginning of the rebellion, said that it would never do to coerce, and that wo must expostulalo with the traitors who were seeking to slay us, are now remonstrating against the adoption of a more vigorous policy. They insist that things are going on exactly right, that this is a constitutional war and that the President must still continue to balance himself on one leg ; then if all this fail, that wc must acknowledge the Southern Confederacy. Disregard all such coun sellors Mr.' President' Never in the his tory of any great revolution did jou read of the success of a VasciUating, ci.iiit promising policy. Compromises and Revolutions are incompatible; they will uot mix ; j uii can no more combine tin in than you can combine oil and water. Down with your foot Mr. Lincoln! We wait anxiously to see it descend like a gigantic trip-hammer upon the head of that treason which is robbing us of peace safety, freedom, property and life.

To bring all thla ' about, they contributed money freely; and as they emptied their pocktla onco to destroy the Government, let them empty them'agaln to help In its restoration. Hut how shall the lax be levied? There are various modes of as sessment, but perhaps something like the following conld be easily adopted : Let twenty-five of tho richest secessionists in the city pay 200 each; this would yield if 5,000 ; ono hundred of tho next richest pay $100 each ; this would yield 10,000 more: two hundred ol the next richest, $."0 each; this would yield If 10,000 more : and two hundred of the next richest, if 25 each : this would yield $.r,000 more. This would give an aggre gate of S'!0,000, and would prove highly agreeable to all parties. 'I ho Secession is; s would probably acrpiisco in it wil lingly. The County Court or tho Gov ernor might extend this scheme, to the County and in this way $200,000 might be raised for tho preservation of the Government and the comfort of the families of our gallant soldiers. We must wako up or our sister chics will outstrip us, and this would be disagrec ublo to the Secessionists themselves. Nashville and Davidson County can and ought to do nobly in the great battle for the Union and free government, and it would be highly reprehensible in our authorities not to allow them the oppor tunity to retrieve their former glorious reputation in tho holy cause of loyalty.

You have' no idea of Ihc sullcring the men of this regiment have undergone ; tho formation of it has been a hard one. Many of our men were laborers in the city, renting their homes of secessionists, aud no tocn cr would the man whosi loyal and patri otic feelings would induce him to enlist, Item his family and c hatties were turned out of doors ami all help cut ell'; but liy heavy exertions and his Excellency, the (iyveinor, mailers were made to turn more favorable to us.

The ncck and myself were authorized to raise the regiment, wo were (lallcrud by a com mittee of citizens that a snug little sum of money would be raised for the benefit of tho families of the 1st Tennessee, and under these inducements ve encour igcd men to enlist.

That Mould be unconstitutional, and radical. What strange ideas of con- stitutionality some editors have! Com mon sense and a regard for the constitu tion would seem to teach ns that if S.Mn js seeking lo kill us, and we can rtb hinj of his strength by cutting off his hair, cut it ofT. Don't make him blind with rage, and let his bids grow, so lhat be will have the power to destroy us whenever the whim may posses him. Why allow your fl. adly foe to use nn "lenient of immense strength" wl.i;u il is the easiest, thing in the world to rob him. of that strength? Will any one maintain the absurdity that it Is rigid to .' your enemy, but tfn,t,j to atiz. his treapma? Yet this is virtually Ihc po sition of the Timet. The 7Vadds: We have no! heard of any reat exodus of slaves, except of such of (h, ui as the rebels did not want. Some halt and blind and aged negroes have c inu into our lines, and are suppni ted at tho public, ex pense, but not many otheis. Our contemporary certainly docs not read the newspapers, or he would know that great numbers of stout, healthy slaves have run off tiom rebel master in Missouri and in Virginia. In many1 counties of the latter Slate the crops are perishing in consequence of the stampede of (he slaves, and in other counties planters aro compelled to pay high wages to their negroes to ketj) them from leav ing. Every rebel paper that wo get from the South reveals the fact that they are in dread of the general exodus of their slaves. Here in Middle Tennessee thou sandwof able-bodied negroes belonging to rebel masters could be got without the least dilliculty by the Federal authorities if they wanted them. Of course loyal masters would not bu interfered with, for We strike al the resources of the rebels. AS to thu "halt, blind and aged negroes" that the Hmet speaks of, the editor has been hoaxed, as that class of negroes don't run away. The fugitives we have seen aro hale, lusty fcllowv, who are anxious" to get employment on fortifica tions for (he Federal aimy, and wo hope ourollicers will find employment for them. It is asking too much of human credulity to believe that hundreds of thousands of slaves would not gladly leave their rebel masters if they could find udmitlauce within our lines. The rebels all know this and look forward with apprehension aud tenor to the day when the new policy shall be inaugurated. Talk to a robe! five minutes about the war and he will betray his fears on this point. Common sense as well as pal riot ism would dictate lo us thcmploymciit of that cle ment of strength which is so important to the rebels, and which, if wcdoimt use, I he rebels will soon employ with far more startling effect than they yet have done. Whal if the Co'ifederatu Gov ernment should olfcr every slave his free dom w ho should shoot a Federal ollii er eir bring in a Federal sca'p ? It is a singular fact, buf one worthy the ictlectioii of ecery patriot, that Andy Johnson and Dr. Rrownlow, and, in fact, every eilhcr Soul hern man w ho has made himself peculiarly elislastcfiil to the rcbtls.is equally despised by those Democrats in the free States who pin politicalfaith lo Law, Voorhees & Co.

They wre fe il eral aims and were taken by a party o? young men (rebels) in broad dav time. Older heads, I I hink, counselled nnd ad vised the movement. The taking of (he guns, in connection with the universal belief aiming loya' fnen, th(t tciTcl . met tings were liting brld by the ribils in different parts of the country, formed the impression that a guerrilla party, or parlies, was, or were, be ing formed in our midst. A meeting' was e slh d of all peace-loving citizens, ef all opposed to guerrilla warfare, to meet near the Tennessee rielge, on the 23d, that the moral sentitnrnt of the country might be expresse d in condctnnajion of the hell ish warfare a warfare practiced only by savage and semi-civilized nations. A day' or two before Ihr meeting, the secestieui ists slarted thu report that fifly armed gucnillas were in the edge of Humphreys and had dispersed iif sepiaels, and were doubtless in the neighborhood. The im pression bei amc general that an ambus cade would be laid feir tho Union men. I did not believe ono word of the report, but I found alni isl every man al the meet ing armed. The re w ere about one hundred and seve'iily-five Union citizens present. Many more would have been present, had ilot the story obtained credence. Very few sece'scioni'st attended. To sco a public meeting of Union men in old Stew art was a painful spectacle to them. They regarded it as tho hand-writing on tho wall, prophetic of theirpolitic.il damna tion forever. They had assurance that not one of them would be molested' it they attended, and yet not more than seven or eight attended. ' I have no doubt but a majority of them would like to see the Union men shot or driven out of the country. Woe bo unto them, if they com mence 1 he work in old Stew art. I have regareleel this rebellion, from the first, as the most causeless and infamous in the annals of tho world, gotten up to gratify (he hellish ambition of a selfish, heartless aristocracy, who, seeing they could no longer occupy tho high place's in, and control, the Federal Government, were determined to have a government of their own. , . .. For sonio years 1 have been of the opin ion that the leading men of the South, of the Calhoun school, designed overturning p 'polar represe ntative Government. Since the rebellion commenced, I see in dications of sue'h a design all over the South. "A Stato has a right to secede with or without cause, and establish a Monarchy, if she chooses," says Senator Wigfall, of Texas. A writer in De How's Review says "the truo ex pression of .Southern Civilizaliou ia an hereditary executive, and Senate for life.'' Several Georgia and Alabama paper have expressed themselves in favor of monarehy. Mr. Ilcssuii writing from Charleston to tho Loudon Timet, says the leading men of South Carolina re gareleel self-government a failure, and were willing io come under her Hrifanic Majesty's government. I think it is likely that sumo of Ihem may re ach her governi ie t, but 1 am wry certain that they w ill all ultimately live under her .Sr.'iiiijV Majesty's government. I am a Southern man a pro-slavery mau--born, and have liveel a half century uneler her sunny skies. I conscientiously bidievc that tho establishment of the Southern Confederacy woulel ho tho greatest ca lamity that could befall the South. I love the South, her people, her institu tions, my sympathies aro all with them, but I have none nore w hatever for the infamous bogus, "free love government." Based as it is upem a principle of anarchy, it is a Pandora's box of evil, an illiad of woes lo mankind. The establishment of the Confederacy Woulel be the beginning of the night of civilization, with no hope ed returning day. I pray God it may never taku place.

Fri'.-mci.ii of Virginia says, "the man who holds the plough handle is entitled to no more eonsiiieialiou than the horse, or as thai draw it." A contributor to the Review from Louisiana, says, in an article lauding Aristocracy, claiming for it all virluc, intelligence anil decency, "that the mechanics and labelling men of 111,) country, light thu baltht of the country, and do the labor of the coun try, and for this we, the aristocracy, give tin m liberty."

' The whole preipcrty of tho country hould be tid to educate the children of the country. No one can niaku me believe that if the laboring men of this Stale had Lceu educaled they would have gone for Secession. The ignorance of the masses in this Slate surpasses anything I dreamed of; whole families la my county cau neither read nor wiite. ..Enclosed I pend yon an article from the St. Louis ErjmhKaui. , The writer ex presses my view s fully on the great ques tion that now shakes the continent and agitale tho world. Old Stewart county will be all right ere long. Col. Andrew, commanding at Fort Ponelson, and hi olficcrs, have maele most favorabjo impressions upem the- cit izens, anil we have no doubt but that thry will be able to preserve tho pence of the county until (he re-organization of the Slate government, when the eivil jovver will be able to do it. Gov. Johnson's course merits the ap probation of all loyal men. His unfal tering devotion to the Union, and to tho true principles of government, are known of all men. "Faithful amongst the faith less; unse duced, uuterrified, ho ha kept hi zeal and loyalty pure." May the people reward him with the highest olliee in their gift. J. M. Shai ki.efohd.

Mr. Editor: Having just left-our army in East Tennessee, your reaeler would demhlless be glael to hear of the doings in that direction. Although our troop9 were, for a short time, on half ratious, owing to the de struction of the railroad at Mm freesboro, all is now well and progressing linely. .Tho barbarity of tho lbishwaelicrs is unexampled. About ten elays ago our scouts found the bodies of four Union soldier hanging to one tree. They ap peared to have been hanging for two or three days. A few days since, while I was out with a scouting party, we foonel the boely of a well-dressed young lady, sbd through the brtutf ! Wc eliscovered that she beleinged to a respectable family, two miles distant, every member of which had been mur elered. Sho had evidently bicn shot while trying to escape. I had partaken of the hospitality of her father's table but three day before; aud as I kneeled by her side, aud fell no pulse, no breath, no sign, I could but think of my sister, of my mother, of my friend. OhGol! that flesh anil Mood should bu cheap. We buried her there, among; the rock and pines of the mountain, aud seven of Ohio's sons vowed by her grave that her eletath should be avenged. In tho treatment of these fiends, who thus show their chivalry their Southern bloeid I know of no means too decisive. When we ileal with savages, with bar barians, with being inaelo after God's image, yet bereft ef humanity, of every Characteristic whieh should distinguish nieu from devils, we must use extreme means. May Goel nervo my arm to ez terminato sue h a race from the earth! The most summary, as well a the most just manner of treating Hushwack ers, was show u in the act of ono of our soldier As the train was running from Iluntsville-to Stevenson a few days since', an innocent-looking man wa aecu sit ting by tho roadsido on the fence. As the train passed, one of tlie- guard drew up Ids rifle and sheit tho man through the body. Groat indignation w a expressed by all; tho soldier put under arrest ; tho train slopped, aud several ollfcrrs went eiver to pick u fV the " poor innocent man." The man was just dying, and iu his last Strugglvs w a tryinj to hide hit tlui-gnn under ih Jeme! The soldier wa iu slanlly ltleaReel. It appeared that the soldier reeoguized the man as eine who had shot at hiui whilo on picket duty, and thu executed summary vengeane e. Tut: Ceit'sinv is Avvakk. From an observing getilleman who has just re turned freiin Southern and Central Illi nois wo learn that those sections are coni ple lely amused lo the importance of the President's new call for troops.
