Nashvuxs, Tim., July 23, 13.
John Minor Botts.
Those who, like ourselres, have Wn
eager believers in the loyalty of John
Minor Bott, and swift to honor the
most trivial exhibition of hi hostility
to tho rebellion, hare sometimea felt
puzled and saddened by inconsisten
cies as little reconcilable to loynlty as
to common senso. When he published
a three column letter in the Richmond
Enquirer defining his position, alter tho
appearance of certain letters in the
Northern papers, illustrating and eulo
gizing his loyalty, had drawn the atten
tion of the rebel press to him, ho never
uttered a word that indicated any more
regard for our Government than JetF.
Da via might have felt . lie held him
self, as the Enquirer in commenting on
the letter said, on a sort of elevated
ridge between the contending parties,
associating and sympathizing with
neither, but looking from hU fancied
elevation on the conllict liko one of
Homer's gods from his cloud on the
fights before Troy. When one of tho
correspondents ol this paper stated that
in the course of a skirmish near Jlr.
Botts' resitlence last summer, one of
our officers met him and inquired tho
direction taken by a rebel squadron en
gaged in the fight, and received the re
ply, "I am John Minor BotU, under
parol to tho rtjbel government and cn
tell nothing of military matters, but a
Union man without an if or 'but,' Mr.
Botts deemed it too oloso an implica
tion of sympathy with our government,
and contradicted it If he had been
loyal as Maynard or Brownlow are loy
al he would at least have said nothing,
lor the correspondent's anecdote in
volved no act or word that could pos
sibly be construed into aViolation of his
parole. It was as a Cnioa man, and au
enemy of the rebel government, he was
paroled, and to avow it was nothing.
But to deny the avowel is something
that we can't easily reconcile with 'the
sturdy loyalty with which Mr. Botts
has so long boon credited. When he
was offered the iSenatorship of Eastern
Virginia he declined it, not because he
modeotly avoided publio life, but that
ho "might stand as a mediator between
the North and South." A loyal man
knows thero can be no mediation be
tween a government justly provoked
and rebels causelessly in arms. Media
tion implies mutual errors and mutual
concessions, and if Mr. BotU be'ioves
the government ha3 anything to bo for
given for but its leniency to tho villains
who have assailed it, his loyalty is not
worth tho breath that declares it.
These and other expressions have led
more than one to wondor what sort ol
allegiance he considers himself as hold
ing to a government which he stands so
far above that he proposes himself for
its mentor and "mediator." An officer
of one of our Indiana regiments which
was encamped nearly all winter on Mr.
Botts' farm, near Culpepper, has given
us a few facts which enable us. if not to
solve at least to see into this puzzle
somewhat He savs that every farm
for milea around is held in Mr. Botts'
name, and is thus protected from in
jury by our troops. The reL&ls who
own the property pay him handsomely
for his guardinship. In his cattle pens
and pastures are the stock of dozens ot
rebc4 neighbors, who pay for its preser
vation from the frying pans of soldiers.
One man let! by curiosity to find out
just how many people really did go to
the composition of that gigantic land
and stock mouopoly, John Minor BotU,
counted thirty different marks on the
sheep in his pens. And while pocket
ing a handsome sum for protecting rel
el property, he stuffs breeches, coat and
shirt bosom full of "greenbacks" for
property sold to the government at
outrageous prices. He charged .54 a
cord lor wood in the tee, the cutting
splitting and hauling t be done by the
soldiers. - He charged 2,500 damages
for the encampment cf one of our
regiments on his property. He present
ed a bill for $6,000 for injuries to other
property. And ho got it all General
Birney, who considered the charge ex
orbitant, refused to endorse the ac
count, but General Meade allowed it,
and so Mr. Botts' loyalty was made
profitable. With these facts in view, it
is Dot impossible to understand why
Mr. Botts does not desire to be on such
intimate terms with our govern
ment as to make the rebel concern con
fiscate ki property, and yet wants to be
friendly enough to ssve that of his rebel
neighbors "lor a consideration." Proba
bly he et out in his hostility to the reb
el government as sinceroiy an i reso
lutely as he was believed to do through
out the North, but like Etheridge,
couldnt understand any sort of loyalty
that didn't assert th right of any man
with a white skin to sii and whip a
man with a black one, and when the
North began to see that it was just pos
sible for loyalty to bo synonymous w;tn
humanity as wrll as slavery, he con
cluded to stop where he ou If 90, there
lot him stay". iWianajviu JouraL
A curious trick of ri3e shooting was
performed at Paris, on Tuowiay. A
bwiss gentleman baoked him If to take
aim with his carbina, then support it

"It is the peculiarity of the rebellion
to be embodied, as It were, in one or
more" representative men. For this
Southern rebellion, Jeff. Davis is such a
man; nor is there any one in the whole
South who could hold that position were
L taken from it"
We cordially agree with one of the
ablest of our Richmond cen temporaries
that it is to to regretted that Southern
papers are thoughtless enough to copy
the above nonsense from a Northern
The idiocy of supposing that "JelE
Davis created a nat;cu" began with a
London cockney, whoso utter ignorance
of our governmental agency for the dis
charge of duties imposed and strictly
prescribed by allied, long organized and
independent i.ations. led him ea.sily in
to au error which no Southern ma ., not
an arrant fool, is for a moment ex
cusable even ia repeating. The hivel
was repeated, though, by lickspittles
who know better, and prevaricated
willfully when they did so. Such crea
tures are ever ready to beslaver the feet
of power, and their loathsome man
worship is no mora likely to cease from
the earth than any other pure and self
It is tho duty of men of principle not
to ridicule the.se to;idi-s, for they fatten
on scorn and castigation, but to dis
abuse that portion of tho public who
are likely to be misled by the sup
porters, of a fallacy so utterly at war
with tho wholes theory of. our govern
ment. We will not charge that it is
balderdash to say that Mr. Davis Is a
representative of the Southern people ;
wo will go so far as to admit that ho i.-
all that discerning and impartial men
claim him to b. for. hf is not a low
and obscene buffoon, and ho does writo
clever English but, rating him at his
full value, we still deny that tho cause
depends on him or on any man or set
of men iu the Confederacy.
If Mr. Davis were to die to-morrow it
is more than probablo that those who
are best acquainted with his disjosition
and his acts would declare that the
cause had not lost by his demise. For
the first busine.-s of his successor would
bo to pack off tho cabinet of needle,
to whom ho clings so frantically; to re
move tho Ilindmans, Holmes, Heaths,
and other officers of evil luck, and to
put in their places tho foremost civil
and military intellects of tho land
And who does not know that tho coun
try would breatho tho more freely from
the instant it became known that the
diseased passion for small men had
giyen place to clear reason and sound
common sense, and that henceforth
whatever ability of any sort thero is in
the land was to be put at once where it
could be of the mo?t service to the great
cause now panting in the agony of fail
ure upon failure, caused, and caused
alone by the perverse, reckless, selfish
and wholly inexcusable and unpardon
able madness for civil capacity only
where it is abjectly subservient, as in
tho '"co-intelligence olliee" of the State
Department, and for military imbecili
ty, only because it enables ono man to
thwart and daunt generals of the first
order, aud permits him, without a mur
mur or inteilcironce, to carry on a war
of proportions so gigantic tfiat tho in
comparable mind ot the first Napoleon
would have shrunk f rom the labor of
guiding it single handed ? Who can
estimate the relief that would be af
forded by one of three dismissals that
of Memininger,or Mallory.or Northrop.
And yet we are told that tho cause
hangs ou this man, who will retain his
coteriw of ninny-hammers, though it
cost tho Confederacy tho whole, a-s it
has already the half of its life, and
Southern newspapers have tho hardi
hood to repeat this prepobterous fool
ishness, and to disseminate it among
the people, under tho sanction of their
In a republic, whore every man is a
king, in feeling if not in fact, it is folly
to say that the people's cause rests upon
any individual. Still less is their cause
dependent on a single person, where, as
in our ca.se, a number of republics are
combined, and the government is but
tho creature and agent of many sove
reign States. A monarch urging war
against another monarch for Lis own
behoof and his own will may claim what
is falsely claimed for Mr. Davis, who is
simply a servant of tlie Southern peo
ple, whoso war this is most emphatically;
lor they drove tho politicians sorely
against their will into it, and many there
be who believo that our o-called "rep
resentative man," freoh from tho quaai
squatter sovereignty bpoeciiein wlaine,
was not th leut 16th of his lclluws to
abandon the flesh-pot of Washington
and visions of future glory in the L'niou.
No, Mr. Davis is not the only man iu
the South who is capable of holding the
jtositiou to which Jie has been railed
The people who have borne the loes ol
Stonowaii Jackson, could b-ar his lose
better perhaps than the los of Rob
ert E. Lee, aud far better than the
peoplw of the Netherlands bore the loss
of William the S.knt Our cae is not
that of Prussia, under the great Fred
erick, whoso single Lie did not contain
the destinies ot a people never free and
never accu.-toniet to act for theutaelves.

Sycophants are l jud in their praises
of what the chief public servant ha
accomplished in waging hucetafully

Ia accordance with public announce
ment, there was held a meetinz of LL
unconditional Union citizeru of LTim
ilton county, ia the Methodist Church
of this city, oa yesterday aftemooa
Ey request of the President, the ob
ject of the meeting was explained ly
James R. Hood, Esq., in a brief and
stirring apnea! He stated the business
to be to taka steps on the part of tha
people cf this county to elect State offi
cers by calling a State Convention to
amend the Constitution. As the Consti
tution cow reads, no lection cati take
place for a year or mom If so, ha
hoped to see the O restitution so amend
ed as to admit of the speedy wiping out
of slavery a system which has ener
vated and bound down the people of
the South, while at tho North all has
been prosperity and progress. This
meeting, though small, will tell here
after. Men who desire public favcr
must now speak out Our home troubles,
said Mr. Hood, are by no means yet end
ed, for the rebel enemy, when defeated
with the bayonet, will resort to the Lal-lot-box
that such men as Harris and
Ewing will band together, to still en
chain Tennessee through the ballot-box.
The loyal Unionists of East Tennesson
must stand together, shoulder to shoul
der, and they will triumph. We must
triumph, or bo annihilated. We must
reconstruct society, socially and politi
cally, or we must let the rebels succeed
in banishing us from the State. There
is not room enough ia this country for
us. and the men who have led off in
this rebellion. Slavery is at the bottom
of this troublo, and slavery must be
annihilated, Leforo peac can ever be
restored in Tennessee, Thxnk God t
the old political rulers will bo put down,
who have forced this calamity upon ns,
and new and good men will rise up to
their own rescue, and establish an order
of things under which wo shall grow
Upon motion, the President appoint
ed a committee of five citizens of the
county to draft resolutions expressive
of the sense of this meeting, as follows:
Capt A. M. Cate, and James R Hood,
James R Allison, John Boone and C
W. Vinson, Esq.

brief absence, reported the following

The Latest Peace Proposal.
We are earnest advocates of pea
with all its blesiiigs of prosperity, pro
gress, and happiness of the people.
War, in general, is a blow struck nt th'
welfuro of a nation, and the indej-en-df-uce
and social well-being of the
masses. Tho rebellion against the gov
ernment by the traitors of South Caro
lina, is especially an atu mpt to deotroy
the independence and proejer:ty of tL
people, to overthrow lJx-rty, and erect
an usurpation in their place.
There are seme who are in favor of
peace," by offering terms to the imn
who boldly and d-f.antly declare that
they will Lear of "110 compromieo." and
"do peaoe," except by a dentruction of
1 he Union. To aid these peace-makers,
we offer the following w Lt-ms:
1. S-11 all our powder to Jeff Davis,
and furnish our own trocj s with black
2. Furnish the Confederate with all
our cannon ball, and use putty or dough,
warranted by "Northern dou? Li &-,"
instead. They would make excellent
