A regularly licensed anctionecr can

is subject to a licence tax, at his (the
dealer's) placoot business, w ithout being

An auctioneer can sell such goods as
are not usually included in the stocks of
dealers, wherever such goods may be
situated, without taking special liecnBC
therefor.
o. 28 htamp tax os express receipts.
The item marked "Express," on page
89 of the Excise Law, was not intended
to embrace t ho freight business on rail
roads and ordinary wagoners, but is lim
ited to persons who are express carriers
and not merely common carriers, under
the law. Tho distinction is very well
known in practical business. Tho ex
press carrier is usually expected to tako
parcel, box or bundle, from tho house or
place of business of tho consignor to the
house or place of business of the con
signee, while a railway company receives
and delivers goods only at its own sta
tions. In the absence of tqiecilic language in
the statutes, authorizing the broader con
struction, 1 must hold, that that persons
and companies engaged in transporting
goods over the country, as such business
is usually perfoimed by railway corpora
tions, nio not liable to the payment of a
stamp lax, upon the receipt given for such
goods. 1 am also of opinion, that the
first ik in in schedule. B, does not include
such receipts for freight as are usually
given by railway companies.
A receipt is no doubt, in a technical
sense, an agreement or contract, but in
the ordinary use of language, Ibis close
construction dots not hold. Had Con
gress intend to include receipts it would
have been easy to have so provided in
plain language.

Bragg's Plantation.
Tho New Orleans correspondent of the
N. Y. Timet, gives tho following accouut
of the plantation of tho brag rebel Gen
eral :
In the vicinity of Thibodeaux is situa
ted tho plantation of Major-General
Hraxton llragg. If, of course, attracted
the attention of our soldiers, and his
negroes seemed to have a very intelli
gent idea of tho relation their master
stood to the National troops. As our
soldiers advanced, Lieutenant-Colonel
Warner, of the Thirteenth Connecticut,
received a word from Mrs. 1'iagg, that
she would like to have a guard to pro
tect her property. This request was
promptly complied with; and when Col
onel Warner came up, two men of his
regiment were pacing quietly before the
door of the mansion. They had, how
ever, arrived too late to save the property
entire. Tho negroes had taken advan
tage of tho opportunity to break open
the closets, invade the bureaus, rip open
the feather and moss beds in search of
treasure, and otherwise destroy tho val
uables in the different rooms. Upon
Colonel Warner's appearance, Mrs. Bragg,
with some excitement, commenced ex
pressing " her mind." 1 knew this lady,
many years ago, long before she was
married, and few women were hansomer
or more eloquent with tho tongue. I
can therefore readily imagine that Col
onel Warner got the worst of it, so far as
words were concerned ; at any rate, I
venture to remark that she had the "last
say." Colonel Warner suggested that it
was a sad timo ; the lady said, "No one
asked the National troops to come in this
vicinity, and why wero they there?"
" Because," said tho Colonel, "our duty,
and my duty, which I learned from
your onte honored husband, taught me to
follow my Hag, and defend every por
tion of my country." Mrs. Bragg insist
ed "that tho "Yankees were intruders and
invaders of tho South." The Colonel re
plied in courteous language, that he
could not understand his position in that
light, and incidently remarked that, as
au old friend of General Bragg's he
would have been pleased to see him. At
this allusion the lady's dark and spark
ling eyes flashed, and she said, "If you
would seo General Bragg, you should
meet him in the West and not here on
his plantation." Tho Colonel, with a
little malice, replied, "that our Western
troops had been trying to meet General
Bragg, but that their efforts had not been
altogether successful." Hereupon the
lady demanded protection, and getting
in a carriage, rode beyond tho immediate
lines of our troops sad, no doubt, to feel
that her husband, and the trusted friend
of General Taylor, and the hero of one of
the best fought battles on our continent,
was now fleeing out of Kentucky a de
feated rebel. She could find no comfort
in her ruined home, no consolation in the
fact that her estate was gone forever if,
indeed, she thought at all daeply or se
riously, she would admit that she adored
her husband for the very qualities which
ho sacrificed forever, when he turned
against his country and its Hag.
Cairo, Nov. 21. A member of General
Grant's stall', direct from Lagrange, says
that Bragg is not in that vicinity, and
that tho report in the Memphis Bulletin
of the 13th is untrue.
A letler from Abbey villa to tho Mobile
New, says Holly Springs was evacuated
by tho consent of all the rebut Geuerals,
ttiey not considering it a tenable point.
At Abbeyville they are preparing winter
quarters, and consider it highly impro
bable that the Federals will attack them
there. This correspondent affirms that
one-ihini of the rebel army is without
blankets he also savs the army is half
naked. The Grenada Ajeil has a des
patch from Richmond, tuo loth instant,

WEDNESDAY MOUSING, NOV. 2G, 1802
Irobable Rerolution in England.
While tho rebels are hoping that the
distress in the English cotton-manufacturing
districts will force Great Britain
to interfere in our civil war, the Phila
delphia Pre thinks it much more likely
that the laboring classes in that oppressed
country will rebel against their tyrants.
It is astonishing to see what enormous
taxes are paid by the English people to
support their aristocracy in splendor
The Press says that "including the rev
enues of the Duchy of Lancaster, and
not reckoning her various rent-free fur
nished castles and palaces, Queen Vic
toria's salary is $2,025,000 a year.
Pretty well for one person, all of whose
children have been, or are to be, provided
for out of the taxes squeezed out of poor
John Bull. Tho Dukes of Sutherland
and Devonshire, and tho Marquis of
Westminster, respectively, have incomes
twice as large as tho Queen's. Set
against this tho amount doled out, in
law-exacted charity, to tho starving serfs
of tho Lancashire cotton-lords. The
measure of England's justico and libe
rality to her operatives, when they are
driven from the mills, and compelled to
ask help from the State, is from twenty
two to thirty-six cents a week. This is
the average supplied to men, women, and
children, to keep them in food, rent,
clothes, fuel, and medicine in tho most
inclement season."
This is tho monstrous iniquity prac
tised under a government which Southern
cotton lords tell us is much stronger than
ours!
News, Etc.
Our budget of local news is exceed
ingly meagre this morning. A gentle
man who left McMinnville on last Friday
says that Harris was there, looking ex
ceeding downcast and careworn. It is
the general impression of the rebel citi
zens that their army will fall back, and
many of them aro collecting their ne
groes and other property and preparing
to fly from the approaching Union army.
It is reported, also, that some four hun
dred of Morgan's horse-thieves left their
rendezvous at Beard's Mills, some seven
miles from Lebanon, on tho Mur
freesboro' road, last Friday morning, and
started to attack a small party of Gen.
Thomas's division, who were on this side
of the river, at Wood's Ferry. Our sol
diers got word of their approach, and
crossed tho river, leaving their tents on
this side, and prepared to welcome the
gang with cannon. When the guerrillas
dashed up, a few rounds of shell were
thrown among them, which scattered
them in all direction, killing ten of the
party. Morgan left his camp with his
whole force that night, and started in
the direction of Cumberland river, with
the intention, it is thought, of inju
ring the railroad. If ho tries that game
he will find himself not in a bed of
roses. Tho fact is, Mono an is now at
an age when he ought to go home,
sober down, join tho church, marry,
and spend the rest of his days in
penitence and prayer.
California is not only the " Golden
State," but eho is a Golden-hearted
State. Her noble people have contribu
ted $500,000 to the United States Sani
tary Committee. California, which the
rebels hoped to have as an ally, is one of
the best working loyal States in the
Union.
Southern Kentucky is pretty well
cleaned of guerrillas. Col. Bklck and
Shacklekord hold Hopkiusvi'lle with a
large force, and the Federal troops havo
broken up all tho gangs along Green
Uiver.
Tho Evansville Journal says, that " in
many cases one hundred and twenty offu-ert
are drawing pay for commanding tu'!
hundred privatrs." Let tho Government
put a stop forthwith to this gross wrong.

Sketch of the Remarks of Hon.
Horace Haynard, in the Method
ist Church, on Friday Night
At tho conclusion of Mr. Brownlow's
address, the audience called loudly for
Mr. Maynard, who responded in sub
stance as follows. We regret that indis
position prevents us from writing out
our notes as fully as we would wish.
Mr. Maynard remarked that if there
were any secessionists presont, they were
doubtless painfully exercised in their
minds, lest the speech just delivered
would injure the Union cause I The
welfare of the Union cause appeared to
be an object of deep solicitude with men
whoso hearts overflowed with bitterness
towards the Federal Government. These
revilers of the Union and the national
flag were continually admonishing loyal
men to be prudent and cautious. Well,
we intend to be prudent and cautions.
Twice before have I been in Nashville
since the Presidential election. In tho
spring of 1801, before any State action
had been taken to authorise secession, I
came to wurircesooro, on my way to
Nashville. On the way I saw soldiers
passing and repassing. Armed troops
were on the march everywhere. At Slur
freesboro I met a regiment hastening on
to fight for tho South. Old friends, who
had hitherto professed the most ardent
loyalty, and united with me in my fore
bodings, and in deprecating the awful
calamities of disunion, .met me on the
street, and turned coldly aside, with
averted looks, and somo even .counselled
violence to me. Arriving at Nashville, I
found soldiers marching, and tho people
intensely excited. The big rebel organ,
the Union and American, in whose tracks
the other papers of the city servilely fol
lowed, advised the people to look after
me. Tho man with whom I had can
vassed the State during tho preceding
fall, as Elector, came to mo by night and
admonished me ot my peril; and those
who had spoken loudly with me for tho
Union, passed me by, in public, as a
leper as onu smitten with the plague,
whose touch would bo contamination
and death. Even then they had raised
the flag of treason, and branded with
dark suspicion all who protested against
the deed. . They who, in coming years,
shall read the history of those days, will
be apt to conclude that there is somo
truth in tho old doctrine of tho transmi
gration of souls; so exactly 'do the
events of one period reproduce those of
another, iou have read in the history
of the French Revolution, how Murat,
Robespierre, and Danton, under pretence
of asserting public rights and liberty,
enacted the darkest series of enormities
of all kinds, that the world ever witness
ed. So the leaders of this rebellion,
made the plea of Southern Rights, tho
justification of the blackest villainies;
all who opposed their wicked usurpations
they called abolitionists and Yankees.
Whoever dared question the conduct of
Isiiam G. Harris and his Military Board
was denounced as a traitor to the South,
and forced to lly. Many men who dis
approved their acts as long as they dar
ed, now joined in the hue and cry of
their minions for fear of suspicion. All
this you know, by sad experience. I
speak of facts with which you are fa
miliar. These rebels went on from ty
ranny to tyranny. You dared not hold
back, lest you should be scourged and
banished. This city was filled with men
of Northern birth, who had carried on
business successfully here, and amassed
fortunes, and these men either had to lly,
or by excessive zeal in the Southern
cause, and in the work of persecution,
obtained tho privilege of remaining and
leading a dog's life. Too many alas!
chose the latter course, and forfeited
their claim to manhood. Such was the
Capital of Tennessee in the Spring of
18C1. It was an awnu period. Look
over an old file of tho Union and Ameri
can, and be astonished at the despotism
and thrall then established over you.
I came again to Nashvillo last Spring,
when the Federal army was here liko a
guardian angel to succor and protect.
The boastful rebel army had vanished.
Harris had deserted you, and fled like a
miserable coward, and many lied with
him, chased by the angry spectres of their
own guilty consciences. Atlarge concourse
of citizens, I was called on to speak.
I appeal to tho published report of my
remarks, in confirmation of my declara
tion that I then advised the Federal,
civil and military authorities to practice
moderation, and conciliation; that I urged
our soldiers not to molest private proper
ty, or turn sside to crush a (lower,
upon their march, that I exhorted my
Union friends to be forbearing and for
giving in their hour of triumph, and al
though they had been insulted and trod
den down, to be magnanimous and mer
ciful. And these eonsels were heartily re
sponded to, for such were the feelings of
tho Union myi; they had no disposition
to punish their oppressors in kind. Con
scious of the overwhelming pwer of the
Federal Government, and knowing that it
could crush its puny enemies to powder,
they pardoned, like generous victors
,rhe President then gave ns a Military
Governor. You all remember who he
was. Had I received that apxintnient I
might have been charged with a feeling
ot political vindictive ncs, and the same
charge might have lieen preferred against
.Governor Campi. ell. Mr. Bell hiul tied
rum tho city is Hying now though
Tvhy, no mnii can

soul, within or n itlmut the Uni

rvhn would think of railing a hand

no lias cuangea since mat tuner iiiuiai you were correct in your estimate

side, after a life of party opposition, and
laboring with him in the work of pre-J through the darkest and apparently hope
serving the Union. The charge of in-ylless hours; and, let mo tell you, he will
consistency nas atreauy dcru luiiy weutUie w ill! you lo the cud
by Mr. Brownlow. What was Governor
Johnson's first act? He issued an ear-fl
nes ana aiiectionato address to the1
people of Tennessee, in which he oflered
amnesty to all who had wandered from
the path of duty, and let by-pones bo
by-goncs, if they would return to their
loyalty. Has not th Governor faithfully
kept his promise? If any man thinks
he has broken it, let him come forward
and show it. You rebels know that your
wives and children were protected. You
and your families traveled bs.ck and forth
unmolested by Federal power. You
came to tho city and traded freely, and
transacted your business unmolested.
In the meantime, what wero you doing?
ere jou imij ignoring 10 res'ore peace
and prosperily to the Stale? No; on the
contrary you were assembling secretly,
in back-rooms, and plotting to destroy
the very power which was protecting
you ; sending letters out by negroes, con
veying information to the leaders of guer
rilla parties, and telling them where to
intercept wagon-trains, railroad-trains,
how and when to surpriso and capture
unguarded pnrties of convalescent sol
diers, trains of ambulances, and tho like.
By your instigation tho guerrillas do
stroyed great numbers of railroad bridges,
burned cars, aod ruined other property
belonging to the State. You aided these
outlaws in capturing mails, and invited
I ho rebel army lo come in and re-take
the city. You rebels who feared ".loa.v-j
son's appointment would injure the Union'
cause," and who will stand on the
street-corners to-morrow, . and bewail
the wickedness of Brownlow; a few
days ago you were trying lo make lair
weather with tho guerrillas were un
certain whether lo prepare breakfast or
supper for Bragu's army, and passed by
your Union neighbors without recog
nition, hoping that in a few hours the
rebel army would enter the city, and
tho loyalists bo forced lo lly you
who have talked and acted wiHi
such treachery, know in your hearts tha'
you have acted rascality of the meanest
and vilest sort. Once you would have
struck the man in the mouth who bad
dared to say you wero capable of such
deceit and baseness. How are yuu re
garded by all honest men? What does
an impartial world think of your con
duct? It is a familiar principle of law,
that when several men combine for an
unlawful object, they all become respon
sible for every act, resulting from that
combination, which may be committed by
any one of their number, whether they
be participators in I hat act or not, or even
if it met their disapproval. Now apply
this principle to the case of these rebels in
Nashville. You Merchants who have
given thousands to destroy the Govern
meBt. You women who have made Hags
for rebel regiments, and helped to equip
their armies who have conspired and
acted with traitors over tho South, with
desperate villains, with savages, educa
ted it may be, but still with barbarous
instincts and purposes tell me, what did
these fellow traitors of yours do in East
Tennessee? While I was counselling
moderation, in Nashville, my wife and
children were at home in Kitoxville. I
was charged with nothing save loyalty ;
as for my wife and children nothing
was alleged against them, except that
she was my wife, and I was their father?
But your rebel authorities issued an
edict for them to leave in thirty-six
hours. Scarcely was timo allowed for
them to gather up their little household
gods. My wife had two favorite house
servants. She took them with her to the
cars, and paid their fare, when the mil
itary authorities ordered them to bo
dragged away. Men who complain ot
Lincoln's proclamation, will be very
angry at this, and say that a Lincllnitk
has no business to owu negroes. You
will judge that I owe the rebels little
thanks. Not one week ago I saw Ihc
children of my friend, Air. Brownlow,
longing and weeping to return homo.
Hundreds of liko barbarities have been
perK-lrated in Fust Tennessee by these
rebol miscreants. Men havo. been ahot
in many instances, in their own houses,
have been tied up to trees ami inhumanly
whipped, while their wives and daugh
ters wero outraged in their presence. An
instance was related to me, a few days
ago, in Cincinnati, by an olliccr of one of
tlio Last 'iViwiehaee regiments, .f an aed
Union man who was dragged from his
house by rebel aoldiers, and tied to a
tree, and bru'ally murdered, while his
daiighlirs Here wola'ed before Ins eve.
Who are responsible for thesti villainies?

State groans with your own villainies
There is no hope you your fato is sealed
hide yourselves fly from tho country.
You who have brought Iheso curses upon
Ihe country hnvo no hope of pardon
Your deluded followers, impulsive youths
and giddy girls, will bo lorgiven and re-"
reived back into society, but 'as for you,
conspirators in the rebellion, lakoyoui
liiglit make it long and make it pre
cipitately. There is no use in mincit g
words at an hour like the present. Out
side or Ihc other has to go tinder the
Nation must survive or perish. To ex
terminate traitors is lo destroy treason;
to punish the criminal is to protect honest
men. The punishment of malignant and
leading rebels is tho salvation of our ,
country and her freo institutions. I ut
ter theso words in no spiritof idlo men
ace, I only admonish you of facts, and
what will soon bo facts, unless this re
bellion ceases. We can parley no longer
with treason; its fato must bo mado it
terrible warning for all time to come
It required a long strugg'e to bring these
convictions to me, but they are the de
liberate and solemn admonitions of my
duty to my couutrymen,and the cause ot
freedom.
We arc disgusted at seeing nominations
for tho Presidency. , Let us make sure oi
having a country before we undertake to
decide who shall be its Magistrate.
