foreigners emigrating South would be passed over
these roads at half-price." On Thursday, a scoun
drel, not a foreigner, but a native of American soil,
passed over the E. T. & Va. R. R. with an emigrant
ticket, on his way to bis tome in New Orleans via
Memphis. The ticket be procured in New York
from the agent there for the purpose of furnishing
emigrants tickets. The agent was doubtless im
posed upon by some foreigner, who procured the
ticket for this fellow.
The thief was handsomely dressed, wearing con
siderable jewelry, and having two large trunks.
President Branner ought to have held his baggage

him off with anexpreftion of his opinion that he

We caution all railroad men to beware of such
swindlers. It is not interred to give transportation
to emigrants travelling alone. To do so it would be
impossible to guard against fraud. Tbedesire of the
oCcers ef the different roads is to encourage emigra

Hi half fare is a most generous one, in view of the
pecuniary embarrassment of all Southern linos. To
guard againrt fraud, emigrants should be passed in
small squads or by families. It is the interest of all
persons desiring to come South, whether emigrants
ur not, to travel over the great Southern route,
through East Tennessee, as they will find close con
nections, comfortable cars and accommodating con
ductors. The roads of Calloway and Branner, in
East Tennessee, arc in as good condition as any in
Kecokueks Cockt. Tne only case before this
court for several days was that of Capt. D. M. Kelson,
of Bradley county. rCapt- N. was arrested by a po
liceman and taken before Etcorder White on the
charge of runniug his horse through the principal
busi ncss street of our city. We happened to be near
the policeman when the arrest was made, and can
lestify he was not running or loping his horse. The
arrest would have been justifiable on the charge of
racing too rapidly. The time he was making might
have resulted in serious consequences by causing a
runaway of buggy or carriage horses. That our
readers may not number Captain Kelson among the
disordorly and lawless persons who are usually ta
i;en before the Recorder, we will state be is the re
verse of this. lie is a gentleman of strictly tem
perate habits, and was distinguished for gallantry
and efficiency during the late war. For a long time

Remarkable Case or Trance A

A lady, residinz within sixteen miles of Raleieh,

since she lost her husband in 185S, died last Friday

and laid out, and all needful preparations consum
mated for the funeral ceremonies last Sabbath.

weeks from the Capitol of the State. He is in bet

The atmosphere of East Tennessee is redolent with

We visited the Insane Asylum of the State a few
days since, and, through the kindness of Dr. W. P.

On entering each ward, we could see, by the smiles
upon the faces of the poor unfortunate creatures,
how delighted they were to see the Doctor, for all
of whom he had a pleasant word. He has complete
and perfect control over the inmates, and this he
has secured by his kindness. " He is the right man
in the right place. We can unhesitatingly pro
nounce the Doctor one of the best house-keepers we
ever saw. Order and cleanliness are observable in
every department of the Institution. The floors, the
table ware and table linen are spotless. In fact,
everything is in order a place for everything, and
everything in its place.
The people of Tennessee have reason to be proud
of their Asylum, and every man, woman and child
owes their thanks to Dr. W. P. Jones and his able
assistants for their untiring energy in behalf of Ten

Wc have not space this week to reply to this
grave charge of the ex-opponent of the Union can
didates for Congress. If our readears don't agree
that we do .s ice to the subject in our next issue,
we pledge them to retire lrom the editorial chair of
;he oldest paper in Tennessee, to the shades of pri
Election or the Rebel Williams.
This unprincipled miscreant has been elected by a
lew votes to represent Carter county in the Legis
lature, On the subject of this election much is be
ing said in the rebel papers of the State, and they,
are claiming that it is evidence that the people of
this county have gone over to the reconstruction of
the rebel-Democratic party. While we denounce
Williams as a shallow-brained, unprincipled traitor,
ne protest again st his success being taken as evi
dence that those ho voted for him are unpatriotic.
He secured his election by a system of lying unpar
alleled for a fellow of his calibre. He made the peo
ple believe that be was in favor of a Franchise,
law, while there is not a greater enemy to that law in
ihe rotate. He to declared explicitly. This is only
ue of the innumerable lies he told. The fact is :
bis tongue would be blistered if he told the truth. !
In two public speeches in his county we told the j

excited the rest of the party, and the whole crew,
shrieking and trembling, deserted the house for a
season. An elderly negress, more courageous than
the others, went into the dwelling and ascertained
the state of affairs, and, with Christian heroism, ad
ministered to the necessities of the dead-alive one.
Search was then made for the retreaters, who, be
ing found at a neighbors, returned to the domicil
they had so shamefully abandoned.
Dr.'Bell, formerly of Greenville, South Carolina,
who has attended the lady during the past six
months, assures us that these are unvarnished facts,
and present no new truths to the medical profession.
It is simply a case of trance or suspended animation.
The only remarkable circumstance, perhaps, is the
duration of the spell, though after her presumed de
cease the absence of that perfect icyness which is
peculiar .to the dead was remarked by the physician
as well as her friends.
The lady is now able to sit up, and being in the
last stage of consumption, is as well as she ever will
be. She remembers very little of the hours of her
trance, but experienced an almost painful thirst in
the first moments of returning conscience.
eminent, but the slavery question is the one to bo
dreaded. While I shall advocate the owning of
" men, women and children," as you say our discip
line styles slaves, I shall, if am living when ihe bat
tle comes, stand by my Government and ihe' Union
formed by our fathers, as Mr. Wesley stood by the
British Government, of ichich he was a loyal subject"
Thus it will be seen that from the first Governor
Brownlow has been a thorough national man, and
even when a pro-slavery man never had the slightest
sympathy with secessionists. He has been a life
long foe to bolting, disorganization and disunion.

I will be found the first chapter the Governor ever

I is well worthy of consideration, and shows him up
! a consistent record. He there says :
" When I drove my competitor to the wall, in
our controversy, and convicted him of retailing his
slanders of me upon the authority of a negro slave
of bad character, (Bachus,) the servant of his co
laborer in his dirty work, Dr. Barns, he came out
and taunted with the false charge that Methodist
preachers were the friends of negroes, and opposed
to slavery, and that Mr. Weiley, their great idol,
wrote and preached against the War of the Revolu
tion, and 6laT;ry. Many of the Methodist preach
ers arc opposed to slavery ; but as many more of
them own slaves and advocate the institution. So
far as Mr. Wesley is involved, he wrote and preached
against the .African kidnapping business. I denounce
that, and so do all honest men, whether they live in
New England or these Southern and Western States.

ministered in almost all cases of disease of their horses, either
alone or in conjunction with other remedies. The surprising
success that attended its administration led him to investigate
the principles upon which its great remedial virtues were
founded, and was the means of revolutionizing his whole ideas
with regard to the treatment of disanes in horses. Previous
