Khootlnjc of Yonng Hall and Hanging
of Young Baker.
We have taken some trouble to learn the leading
iaOs of the cases indicated above, which, upon the
whole, are the most melancholy occurences of the
time;-. Adjutant Will, nail, of the 2d Tennessee
(Federal) Cavalry, acting as a Clerk of the Court,
was in the Court House on Monday, the place of his
luriness, and meeting Abner Baker coming out of
Cerks oflice, an altercation occurred, which result
ed in Baker shooting Hall through the head, from
the c feels of which he died in a few hours. Baker
had served three years in the rebel army: and at
the breaking out of the war, when a difficulty oc
carred between Hall and another rebel, Baker step
pod up and drew a pistol on him. There cems,
therefore; to have beetl an old grudge. The evt
donce is, that Hall had no weapon about him but a
?umll ralan cane. The testimony is, that as they
met. Hall perceived Baker drawing his revolver, and
-roke his cane over him. In the scuffle, the- got
down upon the floor, and while Hall was endeavor
ing to get away. Baker -hot him i" the back of the
Baker was at once arrc-tod by Sheriff Bcarden,
nud lodged in jail. There was considerable excite
ment on the street, and both citizen-f and soldiers
Hore uttering threats again-t Baker. We were on
t he stroets, as it was in the forenoon of Monday, and
together with Judge Jones, Chancellor Kodgersand
Judge Hall, the uncle of the murdered Adjutant,
-.i:d ninny other discrete citizens, we all advised
against any mob viol-.-nc. as wrong in every respect.
We told thosf complaining that th murden r was
in iai;. and would be dealt with according to law.
The fathrr of the murdered man, with commendable
iraUine: Htid devotion V law and ordT, made a
hort talk i?aid want'-d no violence, but wanted
I'ie !nw to tnk its course. Everything quieted down,

which i said to have been executed quietly, and
without interruption. We reside in East Knoxville,

lire at dark, for years. We heard the ringing f
the be'.l and supposed thee whs a fire. It turned
jt, however, that Baker was hung, but by whom, i
ro one -eems to know. Reports say that there
wre one thousand persons, led on by n advpnee
sr .ard f about forty men.
The Sheriff and Jailor are not in the iat to
blame. They could not stand up with a guard tf
j' men against such a force. We have advised the
Sheriff to donble his guard, and we have no doubt
he will do so. There are those in the town, who
are perfectly shocked m these outrages, and are ask
ing why the Governor does not interfere ' The
ernor i- here and regrets thut men who have
-erved in the rebel army for more than three years,
i.ro parading the .-trects loaded down to the guards
with revolvers, swearing they have been everpow
ired, but not convinced '. The Governor regrets
lint Union men are shot down by them, and that
their friends in turn, are hanging them in violation
!" law. The Governor is a powerless as any other
citizen, in all such eaes. The Governor is not so
much horrified m many others. He wa- shocked
four years ago, when innocent Union men were ta
ken from his -ide, out of the same jail, two ctit'.mc,
r.nd Lung by the oilier party, and the she-devils
threw up their white handkerchiefs in approbation!
The Goveriior may have been a Little usrd to scenes
i this kind, and not feel k deeply a- he ought on

Death or Gov. Droagh.
Ho. John Brough, Governor of Ohio, died at the

years. He has long occupied a prominent position
Nifore the people of Ohio, and has rendered valua
b'.e tervioe to the Stale. He had been Auditor of
the S:ate: a Kailroad President, and a leading edi
tor of the Democratic school. In the late struggle
he look the side of the Union, and rendered valu
aMc service in putting down the rebellion. As a
public speaker he had few equals in Ohio. His style
hs clear, forcible and eloquent. We heard him
irirg the late State canvar, in a speech of three
Wars and a half, delivered in Cincinnati to scs eral
thousand anxious listeners, and he was fluent and
logical, showing up the inconsistency and corrup
tions of those claiming to be Democrats, and mis--cpreenting
the principles of that time-honored
-rganiiation. He was the founder of the En t.irer,
!id showed what its Democracy was when he edited

to elevate to office that class of men, and in East :
Tennessee, they will carry out these resolutions.
No McClellan man, finding fault of the civil and !
militarv authorities of the United States, could have j
made any better race than Maj. Heiskell did. One
man is just as strong as another, on his platform. !
The people will not recognize such Unionism. They j
have had enough of this finding fault of the Gov-:
ernment. They have seen it lead to a rebellion,
and four years of war and bloodshed, and they in- ,
tend to frown it down in all time to come. Nay,
they intend to rofe it doiot, and with it all who r p
resent that feeling. Loyal voters in East Tcnncs- '
see, intend in the future, to know only two parties,
loyal men and rebels. Conservative men, and Con
stitutional men, adhering to State Rights, and to
the right to break up the Government at will, the
people have no use for. True, gentlemen have a
right to their opinion, and to their constitutional ;
scruples, but they had better not parade them be-;
fore the country when they run for office.
Let this opposition party, around whoe cand

A New Paper to be Started.
One or two friends have recently informed us that j
the ' conservative partv " have resolved on starting !

anew paper here one that will reflect the true ;
Southern Union sentiment. We think this is well
enough, and feel assured there is room for several
such papers in East Tennessee. Our business is not
to reflect, but to ventilate such sentiment and one
paper of our - faith and order is enough to meet :
the wants of the country. The I'onser-utlvt true

Early did this in an East Tennessee Conference,
whero he turned men out of the ministry for ad

over to the guards such men as claimed, nay, dared
to be for the Union. But hear the address:
The cultivation of the graces of the Spirit will
directly and mightily help forward the best inter
ests of the country, now sore and broken and pros
trate in its resources. Especially would we counsel
mutual forbearance and conciliation in those sec

The following item speaks for itself:
The condition of these Conferences and portions
of our territory which have been the principal the

of the ministry, for the present at least, difficult.
They are threatened with that groat calamity, "not
a famine of bread nor thirst for water, but of hear

sea consolations of our holy religion and the
ordinances ot uoa s nouse, more needed by you and

petitioned the rebel Congress to enact the law of
conscription, so as to force all in the service.
Through the influonce which women had, thousands
were forced into the field, and thence to their graves,
who never would have left home. Playing into the
hands of the devil, by thus filling his ranks, they
had his approval all the time. Wives gave up their
husbands, sisters their brothers, and mothers their
sons willing, nay, anxious to immolate their lives
to the Molock of war. The women were willing to

of table or toilet ready to fling all their jewelry

In all parts of tho South tho demoralization of
women of the " female persuasion is notorious.
They have abandonod their lawful husbands in many
instances, and formed new associations. And it is
a matter of surprise to soo with what brazen impu
dence they will return and face those who are per
fectly aware of their confederate movements. Nor
has this wicked rebellion been without its effects
upon women North. North and South the papers
teem with accounts of "elopements," applications
for '-divorce,' and murders growing out of bad faith.
The devil is unchained, and the women are taking
the advantage of his " loose reign." Women are
passing for married women who never were mar
ried in their lives. With the impudence of the
devil, they thrust themselves into society, less than
one hundred miles from where they started out upon
their career of crime. Respectable ladies would do
well, in all sections, to know certainly who they are
making tho acquaintance of, both among males and
females. Let time develop the incril3 of strangers,
as it will do, and ever has done, unless parties are so
associated as to render their cases clear.
We have no special cases to certify, in view, in
these remarks, but mako them in view of what tho
newspapers teem with, both North and South. Our
remarks ana allusions are general, and are oniv in

Tbe Defalcation Mania
We have for months past been astonished hi the
details of crime which comes up through the press
from tho North and the South. We read daily of a
who murder, or a son who shoots his latter, or
poisons his mother or sister. These crimes, prevail
ing as epedemics, all grow out of money, directly or
indirectly. Defalcations are of daily oeeureneo, and
bank officers and army officers, whose characters
have been above suspicion, have turned thieves forg
ers, and assassins, for the sake of gain.
Some are driven to it by losses at tho gaming
table. Having once commenced embezzling, men
find il impossible to stop without subjecting them
selves to exposure, and hence they pluuge deeper in,
until ruin overtakes them and their motives. De
tectives are all ovor the country, on the track of the
robber and forger. Commercial earthquakes fol
low thece large defalcations accounts and cash
books are overhauled and merchants and clerks
are looked upon with suspicion who never were be
fore suspected. And yet, one-tonth part of the rob
beries, the local villainies, and the private forgeries,
have not yet come to light. There is a fearful
amount of rascality in the country, and it all has
some connection, either directly or indirectly, with

Dear Sir Knowimr vou to bo a jrentleman of

and agricultural interests of our great country gen

the liberty of addressing you this letter, and of stat
in? to you fully these facU. For more than thirty
vears I have-been a traveling Methodist minister in
East Tennessee, and I am now tho traveling Sun
day School and College Agent for the Methodist
Episcopal Church in East Tennessee. At no time
in my life do 1 remember a time when there was
ao littlo rrood wheat in East Tennessee as now. Far
mers throughout this end of the State want seed
wheat, but unfortunately lor the most part, tncy
have not the means to help thetnsclcts. You well
know tho cause. Kebel and Federal armies have

what 1 want to ask and solicit of vou is this : Cant
you help our distressed farmers in getting (at no
distant day) from Cincinnati, say from 10 to 20,000
bushels of .rood clean seed wheat, on such terms as
will not injure you, and at the same time give time
ly relief to our farmers.
If you will give the help wo ask at this time, the
good peoplo of this end of tho State will, in all time
to come, regard you as their friend and benefactor.
I will be glad to near iroui you at once, uur wanm
are zreat and pressing. If it will suit you as well,
I would bo glad that you would answer this letter
through tho Knoxvillo w hig, as tne larmers inrougu

HlADQUABIEKS, KSOXYUXS, Dec. 7, 1861.
General: I wrote you yesterday, giving a de
tailed account of the proceedings of my command
in East Tennessee. Since, nothing of special inter
est has transpired, except a little skirmishing in the
neighborhood of Monsarrat, which resulted in hU
dispersing the traitors and capturing about thirty of
them, among whom are supposed to be several mis
creants who were engaged in burning the bridges.
1 also nave tne satisfaction to report the arrest of tne
notorious Brotcnlcic, which was effected yesterday.
Ho is now in jail. To-day I sent to Tuscaloosa, Ala.,
under an armed escort, (in obedience to instructions
received from the Secretary of War,) about thirty
prisoners, who were taken in arms against the Gov
ernment, to be held as prisoners of war. My brig
ade is very much in need of arms, and it is the ur
gent necessity of the case that impels me to again
annoy you with the subject. I have well formed
suspicions of an effort being on foot for a thorough
organization of the disloyalists in East Tennessee,
and the bordering counties of North Carolina. The
present insufficiency of my command, owing to the
want of arms, renders it impossible for me to meet
the exigencies, which would inevitably arise if such
a State of things as 1 intimate above should develop
itself in this part of the Stato. There are in East
Tennessee, under mv command, some seven thou
sand men, including my original brigade. Of these
only aoout one thousand are efficiently armed, and
on a thorough war footing. You will readily per
ceive the absolute necessity of an energetic effort
being made to supply this deficiency, which, unless
speedily remedied, must entail mischief to our cause
in East Tennessee.
This letter will be delivered to vou bv Mai. J. C.
Holland, of my staff, who will confer with you on
all subjects mentioned above, and will cheerfully
give you any further information connected with
the movements of the forces under my command.
i nave tne honor to be, Oeneral,

Deak Governor Dear Sir:
According to nromiscl have had a tree and frank
conversation with Mr. Fishor, the result of which
was the following explanation. He said that he had
always been in the habit of playing occasionally with
centlemcn as a matter of amusement, never betting
but a lew aonars. Anal at Jiunresooro ne was en-
tited to Col. McNairy's room and commensed play
ing as usual, but soon found out that the party was
disposed to bet higher than he was accustomed to
bet, ana alter loosing a gooa aeai less man nan me
amount represented to you, he quit, and they had
nothing to do with the assets ot tne ianK. l went
on to snow him the impropriety of the least appear
anco of looseness in the management of the Bank
under the existimr circumstances, whereupon he said
he would refrain hereafter from any thing of tho
sort, and that he was very much obliged to you and
mvself for callin; his attention to the subject.
His explanation as to the Tennessee Bank notes
put in circulation, is as follows : He says that Gen.
Forrest had represented to him that his mother was
so situated that she could not U3e Lonieaerate money,
and reauested him to furnish some Tennessee money
for her use; that Mr. Bye, Cashier of the branch at
Columbia, had deposited some Tennessee bank notes
to thoir credit, this being all the Tennessee money
at his disposal ; that ho took the amount, after put
ting other money in its place ; that, upon examina
tion, it was signed Ly rtye as calmer, ana noi Dy
Mr. Dunnington as president. It had been regu
larly registered for circulation, and delivered to the
branch for circulation, and was not signed by him
at all. All of which upon that point is fully satis-
factory. I am pretty well satisfied that there is

of the unsurpassed bravery and courage exhibit-id
by you in that gallant but unfortunate charge, as

of which you have borne an honorable and distin

trom your wortny and ganam commanumg ouicur,
who has shared with you tne dangers wnicn you
have encountered, the toils and hardships which you
have endured, and the victories which you have won
in your country's cause.
Our national flag is dear and precious to every
loyal son and daughter of America, because it is the
emblem of the sacred principles of Union, Liberty
and equal rights, upon which the superstructure of
our Government is based. For the support of this
Union and the maintenance of these rights and prin
ciples, or forefathers, with a firm reliance on tho
protection of Divine Providence, mutually pledged
to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their
sacred honors, and through a seven years' war, and
by great personal sacrifices, nobly redeemed that
pledge, secured and transmitted them, and this ban

their descendants, to protect, defend, and enjoy, and
