Governor Brownlow Vindicated by Lis
From reading tbe above caption, (without an ex
planation,) the Unionists of Entit Tennanee will be
inclined to denounce the Governor and regard him
as a traitor and villain. One cause of their attach
ment to him is becaute that he is constantly black
guarded and traduced by traitors, and if he were so
unfortunate as to receive tbe commendation of this
class, his old Union friends would at once distrust
him. They have no confidence in any man who is
spoken of in terms cf approbation, or who is de
fended by traitors, and their confidence in and et
teem for any nmn is, to some extent, measured by
tbe ratio in which that man is blackguarded and
'ardered by CVpperbeads. In stating that Gov.
Brownlow is "vindicated by his enemies," we state
what is Jilermlly true; but as a friend to the Cover

principles he advocates, we solemnly protest that

The Traitors, Oatlaws, Vagabonds and
Scoundrels of 3Ic31Inn Connty.
In our last paper we stated that on the night of
the 15th inst , a. so-called Conservative meeting was
held in Athens, McMinn county. The orator of the
occasion was a bcoundrel and villaik by the
name of E, Mitcbei Edwards, of Bradley county.
This meeting was more treasonable and revolution
ary than any ever yet held in East Tennessee. In
our last issue we commented in terms of severity
upon the author of the sentiments uttered at this
meeting, and those who applauded him.
This preliminary statement we make for the in
formation of a large number of persons who have
subscribed for tbe Whig during the past week. Since
the publication of our last paper, we have received
a full report of the proceedings of this meeting from
entirely reliable sources. From the information e
had last week, we felt authorized to denounce this
Athens assemblage as infamous. From the infor
mation we now have, we feel authorized to denounce
it as the most infamous exhibition of treason and
scoundrelism which has ever disgraced East Tennes
see. This is strong language, but it is not written
in passion or without mature deliberation. We
propose, in this article, to give a statement of tbe
doings of this treasonable assemblage, and the char
acter of its thief actors, and we feel confident that
every loyal man, who understands the facts, will
cordially endorse the manner in which we deal with
ibis jaylmwking Athens conclave.
CHARACTER CT THE MEMBERS OF TBS MEETING.
This Athens mob was composed of original tecee
sionists and pretended Union men; tbe latter class
being the majority, and that class of Unionists who
supported McClellan and the Chicago platform,
(which declared the war for the suppression of re
bellion A failure,) and denounced Lincoln and
every measure he adopted for the salvation of the
country. The pretended Unionist of the assem
blage, who composed the major part of it, are in
finitely moaner than tbe other part, and to-day more
malignant in their hostility to loyal men than the
original secessionists. They are more dangerous to

and Const-rvatives of
the peace of the country than the rebels, and should,
therefore, be more despised than any other class.
TBI r-REHIDEKT OT THE MEETING.
The individual who occupied this disgraceful po
sition, was A. Blizzard, a prominent lawyer of East
Tennessee. Blizzard has heretofore been classed as
a decent Conservative ; that is, a decent and law
abiding citizen. Nobody will thus class him here
after. In the last Presidential election, he was
Elector of this Congressional District on the Mc
Clellan ticket. He has been, and now is, on terms
of intimacy with his Accidency, A. Johnson, and
tbe drunken Senator from Tennessee, David T.Pat
terson. With tbe latter individual he has lieen pri
vately corresponding, and through his (Blizzard's)
influence with Patterson, a loyal man (whotie father
bad been murdered by the rebels) was removed from
the office of Post Master at Athens, because he en
dorsed tbe action of Congress. Blizzard's loyalty
(?) oozed out at tbe ends of his fingers when the
emancipation proclamation was issued. To save
trotn emancipation an ashy little negro hs would
start on Blondin's rope across the Niagara.
By High Lord Chancellor Blizzard, R. M. Ed
wards was introduced to the " motley crew " as the
orator of tbe occasion.
Edwards is a lawyer by profession. He has been
n office-holder, having served in the Rebel Legis
lature, lie came to this city in 18C2, and endeav
ored to obtain command of a rebel regiment. Re
garding him na an unreliable, unprincipled sxun
drel, the rebels tabooed him, and refused to make
him Colonol. Failing to get into the rebel army as
Colonel, he went to Nashville, and Andrew John
son gave him authority to recruit a regiment for the
Union army. At this time the loyaliiits were leav
ing .East Tennessee in large numbers, and s.xm Ed
ward's Agents had nearly raised a regiment. In
justico to the brave and noble patriots who enlisted,
we wi.l state they were unacquainted with tie char
acter of the villain who held the authority to re
cruit their regiment. So base and infamous s 6coun
drol did Edward's prove himself to be, that Andrew
Johnson denounced him and refused to pernit him
to be commissioned and mustered. Prtcident John
son frequently publicly donounced him, and nipped
in tbe bud bis military aspirations.
Disappointed, soured, the scoundrel returned to
his home, denouncing Lincoln and the administra
lion of the Government, and formed a law partner
ship with an ex-officer of the rebel army.
Having devoted as much space to giving a biog
raphy of the unmitigated villain as wedeem proper,
we herewith give the material portion of his har
Edwards urged the rebels to ''resist the Militarv
bill, to wrench tbe guns from the hands of the mi
ii us, ana ne wouia jeaa them." To "pay no atten
tion to tbe franchise Jaw" that i, wholly disregard
it. lie denouaced tbe Radical members of the
Legislature as " thiives and vagabonds."
These vile utterances were heartily applauded by
the ' traitors, outlaws, vagabonds and scoundrels "
of the Conservative (?) party who were p esent
Immediately after delivering this speech, the icoun-
arei, iMwaras, left on the ears for his home. But
for this he might have been roughly handled by the
union men. lbere were but a half dozen loyalist
On learning (the morning after the speech was
delivered) the character of the seditious harangue,
the indignation manifested by tbe loyalists wait such
that tbe Copperheads denounced it. No onebeJieves
tbey were honest in their denunciation. The ;aine
men who denounced it on Saturday received it on
Friday night with great applause. None of tb
party denounced it at the time. No resolution wan
introduced condemning Edwards' treasonable utter
anccs, and in denouncing them now, after applaud
ing them, they are insincere THET lie. The loy
alius of McMinn are greatly in the majority, and
because of this, and their manifest indignation, the
Copperheads concluded it safe and prudent to feign
disapprobation of Edwards' treasonable utterances
In conclusion, we have to say, we rejoice that the
Copperheads of McMinn have shown their hands.
u e regret mat their hearts are bent on rebellion
but since such is tbe case, we are glad to know it.
" F orewa i is forearmed." We can now make our
e c-. .uJe with this prediction: "When the
"tug of v ar ,; comes, the outlaws of McMinn will
be annihilated, and they will have some other leader
than their orator of the 15th, who proffered to
- head tbem in rebellion and treason. We sav
mis iecaue Alitch. Edwards is a liar, a vagabond
a coward and a scoundrel.
An Ungrateful Man.
A. Blizzard, of Athens, is President of the Mc
Minn county Club of Jaybawkers and Guerrillas
wb nrnnnu TtALr.v th laws of the State. In his
r - - f
denunciations of the Radical party ho charges,
among other things, that the purpose of this party
is to abolish all distinction on account of color. Now,
if this be true, Blizzard is a most ungrateful wretch,
While there is no African blood in his views he is
the blackest man of the Anglo-Saxon race we have
ever seen. His skin is so dark as to have been
source of great annoyance and inconvenience to
bim through life. By persons unacquainted witn
him he ha always been regarded as of African de
scent. During the war a captain in the Federal ar
my, from one of the Northern States, who was con
ductor on the East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad.
peremptorily and unceremoniously ordered him to
leave the car containing white men, and take posi
tion in the one set apart to his race the negro. nn
difficulty he persuaded the conductor that be was
not a "d d nireer," but a genuine Angie-saxon,
It would be impossible for Mr. Blizzard to ride in
the cabin of any steamer, plying between Louis
ville and Cincinnati unless, by some means, be

VOUiU JFIUTD 1.V W Vww -

ing it should feel grateful to the Tennessee Legis
lature for striking out the word white in our Iran
chise law. A man of his color should desire, for
his own convenience, (if from no other considera
tion) that the word white be stricken from every
statute in the land
Ingratitude among all nations, and in every age
of tbe world has been regarded as one of the great
est crimes. Anciently, among the Greeks, it was
punished with death. Until the colored man was
made a citizen and given the ballot in Tennessee,
Blizzard had been the object of all manner of in
dignities and insults, wherever in the State he has
travelled among strangers. Now, he is only ex
empt from insult when among those who do not
personally (and this number is Bmall) know him be
cause of the enfranchisement of the black mtn
The political power now possessed by the colored
race compels the discreet "Jien of all parties to treat
them with respect.
Strangers see that Blizzard is a man of fair tal
ents and education, and suppose him to be a sort of
Fred Douglass in Tennessee-a sert of " Big Ike m
the African population, "of whom, they think,
Blizzard "is which." He despises the colored race
and is writhing and angered over their enfranchise
ment because alone of which he has been spared
contumely and insult. Ungrateful Blizzard ! Un

Under the above caption, among other things, the
Nashville Press and Times says :
Our talented young friend, Col. John B. Brown
low, is in the field, we learn, to represent Knox
county in tbe Lower House. Here is our right band,
Colonel. Your election is a certainty.
We "tip our beaver" to our friend of the Press
and Times in acknowledgment of the high compli
ment he has paid us, but justice to ourself requires
us to state he has been entirely misinformed.
Several months since we requested Dr. L. C. My-
natt to become a candidate to represent Enox county.
We have never thought cf opposing him, and could
not be induced to do so. The Doctor is "in the field,"
and we believe will be unanimously nominated to
represent this county by the Convention to be holden
in this city on the first Monday in next month, for
the purpose of making a nomination for county
We shall cordially support Dr. Mynatt's nomina
tion, and, in so doing, will vote for as reliable and
fearless a Radical as there is in the county.
By some friends in Sevier and Knox counties, we
have been solicited to become a candidate for joint
Representative of these counties. Out of this orig
inated, we suppose, the statement copied from the
Press and Times.
We are not a candidate for any office, and do not
desire to be. If we were, as the nominee of the
party, a candidate for Representative from the
floaterial district of Sevier and Knox, we believe
that our "election would be a certainty." Under
these circumstances, any gentleman, whose radical
loyalty is confided in by the people of these coun
ties, would "certainly be elected."
Col. George W. Kirk.
The name which appears above is familiar to all
the people of East Ten nessee of all parties. A braver
soldier never enlisted in any cause than Col. Kirk
has proven himself to be. It would require a vol
ume in which to chronicle the deeds of matchless
heroism performed by himself and those under his
command. Col. Kirk has received from every gen
eral officer under whom he has ever served the high
est testimonials of his efficiency and daring as a sol
dier. Thb Colonel has all the time been thoroughly
Radical. In a letter which we have just received
from him, he says if the Governor needs his services
in the militia he can have them at any time. The
Colonel uses this language :
" If nothing else will do the rebels and copper
heads but a fight, I say give it to tbem on all sides."
We shall urge Gov. Brownlow to commission
Kirk as Captain of a Company. Athens, we think,
would be a good place to station him. He would
scrupulously protect the law-abiding, and A. Bliz
zard and party would have a nice time wrenching
arms from the hands of Kirk and his old soldiers
We would like to see a battle between tbe militia
under Col. Kirk, and the Conservatives under Lieu

The advantages of Knoxville, as a central point,
are most striking. "Whether viewed as the center
of a rich agricultural region, or as a region abound
ing in all the great minerals, except gold, and there
fore adapted to manufacturing ; or as being at the
intersection of two lines of railroads, one connect
ing tbe Atlantic coast with the Northern lakes, and
the other connecting New TJprk w;h New Orleans;
or viewed geographically, a3 the precise center of
East Tennessee, or enlarging the circlo, as the cen
ter of a large region, in which it is the largest town,
whose circumference sweeps around from Lexington
to Louisville, Nashville, Atlanta, Chariot? and
Lynchburg, her position is a most commanding one.
There are no large competing towns nearer to it
than from two to three hundred miles. Atlanta is
the nearest, and it is distant two hundred and ten
miles, while Lynchburg is distant three hundred
and thirty. Probably there is no other region East
ot the Missouri river, of such mineral and agricul
tural resources, without one or more large central
towns, serving as markets and as depots of supply
and distribution. The growth of such towns Is not
the result of chance, hazard, or altogether of enter
prise, but the inevitable result of the laws of trade.
Every region, that raises more than it consumes
must have a central market, or large town, where
the farmer can sell or exchange his produce, and
from which to draw his supplies.
In this whole region, to which I have referred,
we have had no such town, and censequently no
home market. "With the development of the new
era in agriculture and manufactures, which lies just
before us, Buch a town will spring up some where in
the central part of this region. Knoxville, being
the center of the railroad system within this region,
and now the largest place, will become such a town.
That it will reach, in a few years, tbe proportions of
forty or fifty thousand inhabitants, need surprise no
one. The necessities of this vast region, full cf or
ganic wealth, demand a large central market, &ud
one will spring up. Without our railroads thiJ re
sult might be far off, but with them it is rigut at
Take Atlanta as an illustration. It is situated in
the center of a region, neither so great in extent as
ours, nor so rich in agricultural or mineral resources.
Augusta, Macon and Columbus, to say nothing of
Montgomery and Savannah, are near by to compete
with her. But situaUSd in the very gate of the trade
which flows Southward, she has become by the laws
of trade a market, as well as a distributing point
for a great part of Georgia, and for parts of Tennes
see and Alabama. The result is that it is fast be
coming the most important town in Georgia
Take Memphis also as an illustration. It is the
center of another large region without any com
peting town near it. Her growth st this time is
scarcely second to that of Chicaga. Why is this ?
Because she is the market for a wide and rich region
of country. The leading business there, as in all
large commercial towns, is to buy, sell and distribute
all that is raised in the country tributary to it, nd
nearly all that is required in it by way of supplies.
The cotton raised within the circle of her trade is
first sent there to a cotton factor, who distributes it,
by sending part of it to New Orleans, part to St.
Louis and Cincinaati, and part to Now York. : In
return the cotton planter purchases from the mer
chants of Memphis his groceries and other supplies.
Thus it serves as a convenient market and distribu
ting point for all that country,
Nashville answers the same purpose for Middle
Tennessee, Louisville for parts of Kentucky and
Indiana, Cincinnati for a wider region, and New
York for a still wider region.
Now, Knoxville lies in the very gate of the trade
which will flow Southward from upper East Ten
nessee, Virginia and Kentucky, and Westward from
North Carolina by way of the French Broad rail
road, as well as Northward by the East Tennessee
and Georgia Railroad. I do not take into the ac
count tbe trade which will fiow by this place, some
of which will lodge here from beyond the circle of
which I am speaking, from Cincinnati and Louis
ville, and beyond them, to Charleston and Savannah,
and backward along said line, and along tbe great
lino from New York to New Orleans. Knoxville
is the first important town this interior or domestic
trade will strike, and here it will be so'4 ar-d dis
tributed. And here the producer or farmer will find
his nearest, and therefore cheapest market in which
to purchase his supplies, and for the fame reason his
best market for the sale of his surplus. If by magic
a city of fifty thousand people could be made to
spring up here in a night, it would increase the
value of farm products from ten to twenty-five per
cent, all over East Tennessee in less than ten days,
and the value of lands in a quarter ratio. A large

applicable thereto for a period of seven days; or has

warrant to confess judgment, or procure or suffer
his property to be taken on legal process, with in
tent to give a preference to one or more of his cred
itors, or to any person or persons who are or may
be liable to him as endorsers, bail, sureties, or other
wise, or with the intent, by such disposition of his
property, to defeat or delay the operations of this
act; or who, being a banker, merchant, or trader,
has fraudulently stopped or suspended and not re
sumed payment of his commercial paper, within a
period of fourteen days, shall be deemed to have
committed an act of bankruptcy, and, subject to the
conditions hereinafter prescribed, shall be adjudged
a bankrupt, on the petition of ene or more of his
creditors, the aggregate of whose debts provable un
der this act amount to at teast two hundred and
fifty dollars; provided such petition is brought
within six months after the act of bankruptcy shail
have been committed. And if such person shall be
adjudged a bankrupt, the assignee may recover back
the money or other property so paid, conveyed, sold,
assigned, or transferred contrary to this act, provid
ed the person receiving such payment or convey
ance had reasonable cause to believe that a fraud on
this act was intended, or that the debtor was insol
vent, and such cr4itor shall not be allowed to prove
his debt in bankruptcy."
The proceedings are similar, and the results sub
stantially the same, as in cases of voluntary bank
ruptcy. The estate is wound up and divided.
The origiial jurisdiction is given to the District
Courts of the United States, with an appeal to the
Circuit Courts when the amount in dispute exceeds
$500, and to the Supreme Court when it excoeds

In all proceedings commenced more than one

to a debtor whose assets fail to pay fifty cents to the

in number and value of his creditors. On a second
voluntary baakruptcy, no debtor thall be discharged
when his estate pays less than seventy-five cents to
the dollar, without the assent in writing of threo
fourths ta value of his creditors.
Very stringent provisions are made against fraud
and dishonesty, not only by avoiding the proceed
ings, but by holding the parties criminally liable.
The law will soon be published in full for the use
of the profession. The object of this sketch is to
give some idea of it to the general reader. What
ever may have been our previous views, we intend,
so far as we are concerned, that the law, now it is
the law, shall have a full and fair trial, without pre
judice, or partisan criticism.
Eastern Tennessee looking Up.
Composed of thirlv-ono counties, this di
vision of our State is an empire"' of valleys,
mountains, and broad fields, affording a
lovely climate. The lands are rich and pro
ductive, while the mountains, ridges and
valleys arc filled with hidden treasures. If
this section is but true to itself encourag
ing learning, industry and emigration, this
empire will soon be one of the richest and
happiest portions of tho lately revolted
South. East Tennessee is richer to-day than
she ever was, in that she is known all over
the continent ; and to be known is to be ap
preciated. There aro in her mountains,
ridges and valleys, millions of dollars in
iron, copper, zinc and coal. All she wants
is energy energy. Her system of railroads
and other internal improvements will soon
be completed, making this favored country
by nalure one of tho roost desirable por
tions of the globe.

Editors of Knoxville Wh'g:
Dear Sirs: In the approaching election for
Senator from Roane and Knox, we have concluded
that Dr. Eaton, of Wood Hill, is the man for the
times, who has stood firm against Rebels.
"VVe hope he will accept the call of numeroua
friends and Ma.ht Votim.

A Knoxville Colored Man on the Veto.
A few days since we real to an intelligent colored
man of this city, that portion of the President's
Veto Message on the Reconstruction Bill, in which
be declares that tbe colored race have not B6ked,
nor do they desire the elective franchise.
At this Sambo laughed heartily, and said it was
tbe "best joke Moses had perpetrated."
Roferring to Andy's getting drunk, on Colonel
Forney's whiskey, at tbe inauguration, we asked
bim if he didn't think Andy had Forney's bottle
ny mm wnen be penned that sentenee.
He replied, "if Mr. Johnson was sincere in writ
ing that he could not have used Forney's whiskey
No amount of such liquor as a gentleman and pa
triot like Forney would keep, could make thePres-
denc commit such a blunder. I have no doubt," he
continued, "that the President was drunk when he
wrote that, if, as I have said, he was sincere, but
the whisky which would cause him to make such a
mistake was very mean whisky, and of such quali
ty as a mean Copperhead alone would drink."

The Result In New HaniDshlre.
The first State election held this year, and the first
since tbe passage of the congressional reconstruction
till, has resulted in the success of tbe Republican
party. General Harrimau, the Radical candidate,
is elected Governor of New Hampshire, together
with three Republican members of Consrrass. and
the majority of the State tictet. General Harri
uxans majority is reported at three thousand, which
about sixteen hundred less than the msjority of
Governor Smyth l..t year. There waa f,

Rehcl Candidate for Governor.
The so-called Conservative members of tbe Leg
islature have published a call for tbe assembling of
a convention in Nashville on tbe 16th day of next
month, to nominate a candidate of the rebel party
Among the signers to this call are five East Ten
nessee members who have all the time voted against
tbe Union party and the interest of their constitu
ents. Their names are Shults of Cocke, Jones of
Greene, Jarvis of Hancock, Simmerly of Carter
ana Jt'arks of Folk. The county of each of these
gentlemen will give large majorities for Governor
Brownlow, and give them such a rebuke for mis-
representing tbem in the Legislature as they will

who ued tlurir education and intelligence

The Bankrupt Law.
No measure ef tbe recent Congress is likely to at
tract more attention than this. Tbe Constitution
confers upon Congress "power to establish uniform
aws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the
United States." Many unsuccessful attempts have
been made to secure for such laws a place on the
statute book. In 1842, at the first Congress assembled
after the great Whig victory of 1840, a bankrupt
bill was actually passed, cut such was the outcry
raised against it by the Democrat of that dav, that
its friends became alarmed, and it was repealed very
soon by the same Congress. Nothing, probably, ex
cept the treachery of John Tyler, contributed so
much to the overthrow of the Whig party and the
defeat of Mr. Clay in 1844.
Early in the last Congress, a bankrupt bill was
introduced by Mr. Jenckes, of Rhode Island. So
serious, however, was the opposition to it, that it did
not become a law until tbe very last day of the last
session, March 3, 1867. Even then it passed by the
close vote, in the House, of 73 to 71. A change of
a single vote would have dofeated it. It was by no
means a party measursj being resisted vigorously
to the last by some of tho staunchest Republicans
while some of their most zealous opponents sup
ported it as constantly. Our own representative, we
observe, opposed it, and voted against it, as did the
most, if not all, the members from Tennessee. Had
the President vetoed it, the bill could not have
passed over tbe veto. Or had he simply failed to
sign it, so late was it in the session, the measure
would have been defeated. As he signed it, and as
it has been his course to sign no bill that he disliked
the fair inference is that he was in favor of it. Hav
ing become a law under these circumstances, it can
not well be made a party controversy, and will be
likely to have a fair trial upon its merits.
Tbe bill is very long, consisting of fifty sections
too long for us to publuh entire. The following sy
nopsis will enable our readers to understand iu
prominent features. Ii provides for two classes of
bankrupts. 1, Voluntary; 2, Involuntary. 1. Any
person residing within the jurisdiction of the Uni
ted States, and owing debts $300 in amount, (not
including debts created by fraud or embezzlement.
or by defalcation as a piblic officer, or while actine
: j: , .
in ny juaiciary cnaracwr, or any liability, as suretv
or otherwise for such deirts,) may go into court by
petition, make a fair surrender of all his effects-, ex
cept such as were exempt by State law in 18C4 from
execution, and receive a clear discharge from all
debts owing by him on the day of filing his petition
excepting those above enumerated. The property
and effects, over and above those exempt from exe
cution which he is allowed to retain, are to be con
verted into money and applied. 1. To foe. rru
&c; 2. To debts, taxes and assessments du ffc
United States; 3. To debts, taxes and assessm
due the State; 4. Wages to as operative, clerk, or
house-servant, not exceeding $50 for services ren.
dered within six months befcre inir ir,t v.w
o n uuk
roptoy; 5. To all debts having legal priority. Aft-r
these are paid in full, the balance is to be divided
ratably among the othor creditors. The effect uDon
the creditors, it will be seen, if much the same s if
the bankrupt had died. If th voluntary bankrupt
be a citizen of the United Stales, he must take and
file with his petition an oath of allegiance and fi.
delity, before any proceedings kre had.

IFAo betrayed his State ?
Johnson when, after organizing under Lincoln,

disloyal friends, creating adherents and parasites by

Union men from office and putting rebels in, and
stirring up strife, treason and rebellion in the' land
so that he may make himself a throne upon- the
ruins of Republican Liberty.
