THE ETOXVJILE I WHIG.
Knoxville, Tenn., September 6, 1865.
To the Voters of liic Second Congress
ional District or the State or Ten
nessee. Although tho hile elc tiou for Conresa resulted
1:1 my dvletit, I was neither greatly disappointed,
nor am I now discouraged. I am yet well satisfied
that a majority of con&t'.tutloaal voters of the dis
trict, preferred my election, and favored the policy
and principles 1 advocated! A full, fair and un
trammelled expression of popular sentiment would
have tent me to Congress bv a largo majority. Uul
that kind of an expression, as I foresaw wauld to
tho case, was not, and under the circumstances, could
not be had. Tho returns, compared with those of
previous elections, exhibit a great falling off in the
vote of the counties, and I may safely say that
more than half of those entitled to the elective fran
chise either did not exercise it, or cast their suffra
ges for men whoso election they did not desire. I
have information of numerous instances where my
warm personal and political friends were in a man
ner forctd to vote against mo. Persons exposed to
dangers,- or threatened with or apprehensive of
personal violence, will sometimes purchase poaco at
the cost of personal and political independence.
It is true the bayonets were not at the polls, but a
worse than military influence was there a mub
terrorism find fear of violence. Hundreds and
thousands, 1 am satisfied, were in this manner de
terred from going to the election at all. and many
constrained to vote against their predilections. It
is all a mistake to 6uppuse that a majority of the
loyal people of East Tennessee are in laror of the
policy of personal outrage and violence, or of ne
gro Euffrago and negro ctuality. The great majori
ty lovo law and order, and prefer that personal
wrongs thall be redressed through the regular and
legitimate channels of tho courts of tho country. A
very bargo majority are utterly opposed to taking
the right of suffrage from the whito man and con
ferring it upon the negro, and believe that this coun
try and government its Constitution, Laws, and
Kepublican institutions were made and intended for
the white race. A largo majority, now that the re
bellion is suppressed and tho idea of a Southern
Confederacy exploded, are desirous of restoring the
original orcior of things tho institution of slavery
cf course excepted, and of starting again the old
hip of State upoa calm and prosperous seas. 1
am notia favor with certain powers that be' in Ten
nessee, and the effort has been made to place me
under political ban, because I do not favor a con
tinual and unnecessary disturbance of the social and
political elements, the natural tendency of which io
only to keep us forever in social and political storms.
In this, however, I havo tho satisfaction to know
that I stand in company with a largo majority of
the people of the State and my own immediate dis
trict. v j
"We wont to war to preserve the political partner- i
ohip existing between all the States comprising tho
American Lnion, and which tho Southern States,
in their madnecs and folly attempted to dissolve.
"We won ; and the South, with commendable philos-i-pby,
has submitted to the logic of events. Thev
consider the issue of secession as forever settled, and
are willing, and to considerable extent, anxious to
como again under tho government ef the Union.
ew, what moro can, or ought we to ask or desire,
except that tho South shall continue faithfully to
observe the compact of Union? "Can thk be most
fuccesfully and satisfactorily accomplished by ma
king tho Southern people hate the Union and feel
that they have no part or lot, no rights and liberties
in it? If it ho desirable to keep alive the fires of
secession and disunion, and to retard our national
prosperity and prepress, it is only necessary to de
stroy the connection between Union and liberty,
and make tho former a symbol of oppression to any
one section of the country.
Our President, in consonanco with the usage of
civilized nations and the wise and well recognized
maxims of humanity, moderation and honor, gov
erning all high-toned and christian rulers, has pro
claimed amnesty upon liberal terms to thoso cn
gaeed in the late rebellion. When an amnesty is
published and accepted," we are told by internation
al lav,- writers, ' All the past must bo huried in ob
livion." I am therefore opposed to tearing open
the old national wounds and cau'iin tho bodv poli
tic to bleed again at every pore. To heal" those
wounds from which during tho la-:t four years, riv- 1
ers of precious biood have poured out to redden our
land, it is necessary onJy to withhold all undue irri-'
i&nti, every came of disturbance and dissatisfaction, j
except such as may be absolutely requisito to main- !
tain tho national dignity and secure the national
integrity. Phcing the negro on a level with, or in- j
deed, ia superiority to the white man ; rcdros3 of !
personol grievances; all undue and unusual severity j

I am unwilling to bo placed in a faUo position be
fore a people with whom I have lived 50 long and
lor whom 1 entertain such high regard. Xo honest
man ia this community will insinuate anything
against my loyalty to the government of the United
fct&tes. As a Union m.m 1 have been constant from
the beginning devoted to the Union from princi
ple and for tbe sake of the Union. Every candid
man with horn I have exchanged opinions in re
gard to the stale of the country and the government
.f the nation, knowing my cordial agreement with
Treiideat Johnson so far as his policy has been de
veloped; and that I have invariably e pressed the
opinion that President Johnson would scttio the
dificulty between the 2s orth and the South as spee
dily and satisfactorily as anv man in the nation
could do. That I believed in "Lis ability to conceive
the measures adequate to tha end and Lis nerve to
cniorce every necessary means. "When Mr. Lincoln
rvas first elected to tho Presidency, 1 voted for a
ciu-ea cl lcnnos-ec, whom I had known from his
lint entrance into public life, with whom 1 had al
ways maintained intimate and uninterrupted friend

But Mr. LuiLoln v as elected legally and couttitu

du-.y cf Tcnnes:ce, and all the Southern States
to acquiesce in that election and submit to his gov
ernment aU of which no man knows better than
those who now find it convenient to denounco me
as a eppcrhead. Nothing has since transpired to

At the last Presidential election. I would have
voted for Gen. McClellan, had there been an electo
ral ticket in Ids favor, in the State, because, in my
opinion, he was not only equal to Mr. Lincoln in
administrative ability, but 1 believed he comman
ded the confidence of the army in a high decree
and from his experience as a warrior, would prose
cute the war with more vigor and energy than Mr.
Lincoln could do. But I still had full conlidencj
in ilr. Lincoln's patriotism, and no man viewed his
death as a great calamity to the whole country more
sincerely than I did.
I have no wish to diuise the fact for it is a fact,
that my Etretgth rested in the conservative and con
ftitutional voters, whom, both before and sinca the
election, I believe compose the majority of the dis
trict. How, then, did it happen that I was defeated ?

Why did the conservative candid&ta not receive the
votes of the conservatives In the district ? Tho an
swers to these questions have already been given in
the first part of this letter ; and I am sure that every
candid man will express the same opinion, and that
is, they were deterred entirely from going to the polls,
or from voting freely when there. They were, in fact
coerced to vot for men whom they aid not desire
to support. They were denied the right altogether
by a system of annoyance and intimidation at once
subversive of all law and destructive to liberty.
In 1859, the aggregate vote of the counties now
comprising this Ustrict was 17,767
In tho election which has iu.-;t taken place.
Less now than in 5,419
rolk and Union counties, not organized inJ1853,
then voted with the counties from which they were
taken. I allow 12,00 for those two counties and
535 is the ratio of Claiborne county, according to
the falling off in the other counties.
-nr. jiaynard became a candidate but a few days
i before the election and received an
majority of the votes polled. Does any man sup
pose that this was tho result of Mr. Maj nard's per
sonal popularity ? Did he advocate any peculiar
measures or policy which commended him to tho
hearts of tho people? lias he ever been regarded
as a man in sympathy with the people ? Strip Mr.
Maynard of the advantitious iniluenco of " Brown
low's Knoxvillo Whig," and what would bo his
strength in this Congressional District? Sot love
for Jlr. Alavnard, but fear of Mr. Brownlow, elected
the man who the people, in their hearts, would have
If left to tho free, unconstrained, constitutional
vote of tho district, he would never be elected to
any position of honor ho never has been.
In his speeches Isforo the people, he professed to
be the most con street ice of all candidates. Now,
will the people here, at Mr. Maynard's home, please
make a note of this. Then, in locating the Hono
rable gentleman as a'reprcsenlative in Congress, Mr.
Maynard inuil be set down on the conservative side
cf the house. F. S. IIeipkell.
