THURSDAY MORNING, DEC. 4, 1662. To the Young Hen of East Tennessee. NAsnviLi.E, Tehn., Dec. 2, 1802, The reasons that prompt me to address you, will appear in the readiag of this card. , Our section of the State has assumed a position in tho progress of the present civil war that mnkes it the pride and boast of true patriots everywhere; and especially do the loyal of our own ualive mountains feel proud that they w ere horn and raised, and can of right, claim to be citizens of patriotic, Union-loving East Tennesson The most momentous issue ever pre sented to the world, save one, is now before the American people! They are acting upon it in the course of this ter rible civil struggle! Section is arrayed against section ; in many instances house holds are divided! Tho nature of the struggle is such that no one can be in different. All have a preference. The choice made by tho great body of the neon eof our nartof the State was a wise m. . . .. , . one. They chose to adhere to tho Uov- ernment eiven them bv the Divine cuid- ernmeni given mem oy ine divine gum anco of their fathers. For their devotion to this Government, they havo been forced to submit to wrongs ana outrages, the extent of which may be imagined, but neither tongue, pen nor pencil can por tray. Once they roamed as free as tho God of Liberty created them ! But now they are attempted to be made slaves by a military despotism, to a little circuin scribed, joint-snake, cotton Confederacy, I presided over by the evil genius of Jekk. Davis, the chief of modern thieves! The treatment our people have received at the hands of tin's counterfeit Govern mcnt need not be dwelt upon. You have experienced something of ila cruelties The world knows its excessive wicked ness, aud thousands have treasured up its wrongs. Heaven has scarce reserved in store a shaft of punishment sufficient to avenge the wrongs inflicted upon our people. All this being fact, and not fan cy, it is but just to suppose that, after this state of things shall have passed away, and the military power of the great Southern mob that now rules over our friends with bloody hands, shall be crushed and destroyed, as it certainly will, the people, with one accord, will hold US all responsible for (ln nirt we t ..- . . .... . . took in accomplishing this most desirable result, the consequence of which was their emancipation from the most infer n al bondage ever known since civiliza tion first dawned ! It is our duty ; it is the duty of every East Tennesseean, to contribute all his energies to tho redemption of his home, and friends there. If lie is a young man, able-bodied, lie should not hesitate a moment, but join the army at once. F.s pecially should ho enter the service, wlu n lie has been driven from home by that infernal despotism that has usurped au thority in tho South! Young man: you who havo fled through thd delilcs of the mountains, and stole your way over craggy bluffs, to avoid the hellish grasp of usurpers and tyrants, it is your duty to join tho Federal army ! If you would bo respected hereafter, hasten to enrol your name, and bucklo on tho armor of tho patriot soldier! What! a refugee? driven from home! exiled! 'and not willing to help fight vour way back .' ihink. ot ill ami lor y your own and your country's sake, enter the army without further delay. If you aro young, aud able to stand tho service, it is certainly your iirst duty, and future generations will tell you so! Don't come into the Federal lines, and keep up an eternal cry about "forward moves," un less you first take upon yourselves tho duty and obligation of soldiers! There are a great number of young men, from different portions of the South, now iu the Federal lines, idling aw ay their time, meditating, I presume, when they will return homo and boast how " H cruieti the reUllion !'' Now, gentle reader, I have not written a single word to offend any one, aud God forbid that I should! I desire, after this war shall have ended, that every man who has remained loyal to the Union may receive the homage due a patriot, and particlarly do I desire the loyal men Urtgadier Genera!

A prominent Kentucky Unionists has arrived here from New York, where lie had an interview with Dean Kiehmond and other leading Democrats. The Ken tucky Unionists was much amused with Dean Iuchmond s comments upon the re cent election in that State. Said he "The South need not run away with the idea that tho war is going to slot) be cause we have elected our candidate for Governor. Whatever individuals have said during tho canvass, we democrats do not mean peace and seperation. We know well enough that the Stale of New York is for the prosecution of ihe war by an immense majority, and if tho rebels think otherwise, they aro terribly mis taken." "I'uthow about the election of such men as the Woods?" asked the Kentuck ian, "Heallythey aro for stopping the war?" "Oh, we had to use this small clans of men the Woods anil uieir sympathisers to succeed. We could not have dec - lea Meymotir wiinnui mem, anil as we needed tiieir Help, we nan lo pay 1 hern for it. lint the Woods do not represent the Democrats of New York Stale, and cannot speak for the in in the councils of the nation." The Kentucky gentlemen was much relieved by this explanation of a New Democrat, for bo had seriously feared that the result of the recent election in mm cnaio wouin do mat tne jnnpire Slate would rango herself against the w ar.

T. . . . , ,. . , It is stated that one of the victim ' ordered to be executed at Palmyra, Mis amnion thelHth inst., was a nan who had a wife and several children depend ent altogether upon this daily labor for their support. A young man, knotting the condition of the family, offered him self as a fctibstituto fir the husband and father, was accepted, and was one of I lie ten who were thot. Ho probably lives to tell the story. From the St. Louis Pemocrat Justice to Slaveholder!. The impression prevails to some el tent, moro particularly abroad, that the late emancipation triumph in Missouri was a victory over tho slaveholders, ami that the contest was one partaking large ly of the character of a war of classes or interests one side being represented en tirely by slaveowners and their adher ents, and the other entirely by non-slaveholders. Such is not the fact, and jus tice to a largo number of earnest, hard working Emancipationists in Missouri, who are owners of slaves, requires that it should bo stated. Trcvious to the election, and since, wo have been in confidenfal communication with slave-holders, as well as others, in all SMoiiv.ua ot (ha flute, nd navo in consequence ,the means of judging of their real sentiments upon the subject of emancipation. A disclosure of our en tire correspondence would exhibit somo singular things among others the fact that many of the most liberal minded men in the State upon the question of freo soil, are largely interested in slave pro perty. Many of theso men were however, not simply favorable to emancipitalion at heart, but have been the most zealous and successful workers in its behalf in the late canvass. It is ono of tho sin gular, and by no means unnistructivo fea Jtires of the election, that several of tho heaviest slaveholding counties in tho State havo given decided emancipation majorities, while counties, on tho other hand, having scarcely a slavo in them, havo elected pro-slavery representative to tho Legislature. The great fact established is, that (ho result of the election is not tho product of a prejudice of ono class of our pboplo working against another class. It is tho result of a general conviction, entertain ed ny men oi property nr,d imclligcncn throughout the Slate, without reference to the character of their possessions, that slavery in Missouri is a doomed institu tion, a cuniDen r of the ground, a dry and worthless trunk, the sooner cut down and cast into the fire the better for tho true interests of the State. The triumph or emancipation, although to somo extent aided, undoubtedly, by the peculiar con dition of public matters in our midst. was not the w ork of the bayonet, of pop lar excitement, or anything of B tempo rary nature, but ot the sober, second thought oT the people, a deliberately exectiicd as it was formed. Outside, of St. Louis, where the contest was between two parties of professed Fiuancipaf ion ists, there never was a more quiet and orderly election held in the Slate, nor one ai wnicn loyal citizens had a better op portunity to vote their real sentiments, nor ono succeeding a less exciting and acrimonious canvass. It was the delib crate verdict of a people, who had calmly weighed all tho fads in tho ease. Tho result is revolution which is in no dan ger of going backward. We feel a greater anxiety to have the real facts, as wo havo stated them, cor rectly understood iu the Northern States, on account of the conditions upon which coiistituiional and legal cruancipalion in itiissoiiri must lake place.
