as this issue is expected to icach them all, they will

fteteal. Klrat, the "Wheeler raid breaking up ihcJ
railroad between Knoxvillo andXIiiftttwM fi"d
wgir'--t3Wimflgol stopped the
mails Tor ' weeks; and' next, our supply of paper
slopped, all of which has to come from Cincinnati
or Louisville. The roada liaving been repaired, and
we having obtained a military order to let our pa
per come through regularly, subscribers can expect
.their paper in the future. We assuro those who
have faildd to get their paper, that we will continue
sending to them until they got the number dua them.
Tho timo' of advertising customers shall also be
filled out. Having been honest in all our dealings,
through a somewhat eventful life, we shall not cn-

In a leading editorial last week upon the subject
of the supporters of tho two Presidential tickets in
tho field in tho old Government, some of ourTcaders
understood us to convoy tho idea that all slaveholders
in these border Stated were for 3fc01eilan and op
posed to Lincoln. If we conveyed such an idea it
waa not our intention, for we did not believe it. Wo
'knew full well that half of nil tho slave owners in
Tennessee wero for Lincoln over McClcllan, not be
cause they approve all his acts and doings, but bo
cause they regard him as the man to put down tho
rebellion. Nor did we intend to say that all slave
OHrwrayare traitors at heart, and in sympathy with
the rebellion, for we know to the contrary.
What we did intend te say, and what we now re- !
peat, is this--All the remnants of the several kinds
of ikfttncl risiocrttcics2Lll tho insolent debtors,
made eo by the war tho owners of negroes, cither
Etolen in Kentucky or gambled for in Tennessee
and all who are traitors at heart, and in sympathy
with the rebellion, &i on the side of this infamous
Northern Peace Party, put in motion first at Rich
mond, Rd organised since-at Chkage and they arc
ireooH:ikbly opposed to the nominees of th Bal
tiutore Union Convention. Wo further intended to !

The regiment, ndec its gallant ""Majors, resumed.

drove them in every direction, leaving in their flight

Colonel of the First Tennijsaee Cavalry, emphatical
ly a jighiing regiment, but that regiment hai the(sat
isfaction to know that in the same fight they killed
their General Hejy, one of his Captains, jnd some
of his men, ng burled them en the Tyttla couun
after the cowardly tHIevcs"had ingToriously fled.
The rebel who wounded the Colonel was seen to
shoot four times, deliberately, and was withinfifty
steps when his- shot took effect. A private in the
First raised his gun and shot him dead in Ms tracks.
The;gallant First had five men killed in this days
fight, and about seven wounded none captured as
at first reported. We are not able, from memory,
to give names,:but will do eo at some future time.
The regiment is-restiugyit Franklin. The ColoneFs;
wounds are dping,welland he suffers most, "at our
latest dates, from his men crowding his room to see
him evidenqo of their strong attachments. Few

the -war to'draw blood, hi, a hand to hand chargej
We don't know how this is, but certain it is, triey
have done akgreat deal of hard fighting, and lost
many brave and gallant men in battle.
No set of men under Sherman, in his brilliantbut
bloody campaign, over fought with more bravery
and desperation than theast Tennessee regiments,
both cavalry and infantry, without a single excep
tion. The result has been thafiiundreds of the p"opr
.fellows have gone to their long homes. Wo had

Gen. McClellan is a very respectable gentleman,
an educated man, and' an able we repeat able
military man ;, and until ho accepted, the" Chicago
nomination stood very fair with us; We now think
lees, of him than we do of John G. Breckinridge, and
vvoiild vote ibr-onc as Eoon as the oilier.
Breckinridge accepted of the Baltimore nomina
tion when he kncio the plot of his party to, be the
overthrow o the Government, nay its utter ruin.
He wag in the scheme, allowed himself to be used
for that purpose, and is therefore an infamoxis iraiior.
The corrupt men and abandoned traitors, whb, for
the most part, composed the Chicago Convention,
and are identified with the . party urging ,tho elec
tion, of UilcClcllan, have long imioemcrratntvA

wicked and most damnable purposes, as they cer
tainly will, they aim at a revolution 'in the loyal
States, and arc collecting arms and funds for the
object. McClcllan foiow this to be so, he is too well
informed not to know it and yet ho lends himself
to theeo men for such objects. He has accepted the
nomination from a set of traitors written out a let
ter in favor of tho war and tho Union, when the
party and Convention nominating him dtclaro for
"an irnmediai&cessation of hostilities," and say noth
ing in favor of tho Union. Jid every any man oc- j
cupyucli an absurd position ? Can- the men .who
nominated him, and arc using him, have any conr-1
fidence in him, or any respect for him ? Certainly
This is plain, out-spoken talk, but they are just
tho facts, in the case, and are apparent to every read
ing -man; Thousands of clever and1 patriotic .men
will voto for McClcllan, but they-will be in the dark
as to his position, ignoront of the bad influences that
will control him, or they will be secretly inclined. to
favor the rebellion. One consolation, however, to
the friends of the country is, that ho does-not stand
a ghost of a chance tcbe olocted.
