A Swirt Witness.
The ."-lalviiioiit cupied from the kttcr on
Kirby, ibat a Mr. Beach, City Marshall of
Chattanooga, had been a "rebel candidate'
Las drawn from that gentleman a letter
published in the Press and HeralJ, hich
copy at the request of the writer.
Chattanooga, June 11th, lfcti?4.
T. B. Kikby, K-q :
Dearir: I have read with surprise
the enclosed extract from the Knoxville
Whkj; I think it due not only to yon but
also to myself to ask you to publish the
following statement.
You never were a candidate for any office
on any ticket in Chattanooga. I have been
acquainted with you for over throe years
and during all that time have known yoa
to bo a straight out Conservative. Yon
never belonged to any Union League in
this city. And I xvill also bear testimony
that no IJadical in this city really believes
that you wero ever anything but a Demo
crat. If tbo expression. "Press ar.d Herald"
men, means to include the manager Mr.
Wm. J. Ramage, I would state that he, to
my knowledge, took Eides with the Johneon
Conservatives when the " Johnson party "
fin-t developed, and ha3 always fought us
Kince, and never belonged to the Union
League in Chattanooga Both yourself and
Mr. Ramage are courteous gentlemen.
The wr;tcr is the " Jiebel Beach " men
tioned. I would ttitte in mj- reply that I
j.m a Badical, Mat, a Union soldier, am by
birth a Pennsylvania!), and never voted the
Democratic ticket in my life. I have been
City Marbhyl of Chattanooga for two j ears
find never way known as a sympathizer
with Conservatism. I am really surprised
that Col. Brownlow would take me to be a
Kcbcl after exchanging opinions personally
with him as I have frequently done. I
would bo pleased to have the Whig correct
its statement M publish this letter.
J. S. BlACH.
We haw: hpciit but two days in Chatta
nooga in three years. If wo ever bad any
conversation with Mr. Beach, wo do not re
member it. Wo do not recall his features
by seeing or hearing Lis name. We have
no doubt we have been introduced to him
and conversed with him as ho states, but
we do not remember all of tho thousands
of fctrangers whom wo have casually met.
The gist and .substance of all we said in
the Wni'; (and it is this which offends
Kirby,) is : that ho has turned a complete
summeraPult in politics. On this point his
friend Beach comes to his rescue as follows :
I will alo bear testimony that no .Rad
ical in this city really believes that you
lit re r,r oiiyt,!iij bt a Democrat." This
is a rich "go.ik." It is far more domning
to Kirby, than anything his otcmks could
. .1.1 1
i say l ii mi. 11 true mat ne was a i ways
a CoiiMcrvativo it shows that for a Major's
s;ilary in a colored regiment he was acting
and professing that which was contrary to
his convictions.
By ''Democracy" be of course means j
Conversation as opposed to Radicalism.
Tho idoa of a Democrat or Conservative
commanding colored soldiers. We'll bet if
he were to express himself, that Col. Wm.
Ileiskell would hay " d n biich. De
It is-notorious that Democracy all over
tho land denounced tho enlistment of col
ored troop:).
We made no reference to Mr. Ramae.
but Mr. Ueacli is a " swia witness" and
Becms anxious to bolster up the whole es
tablishment. If he would create tho im
pression in Knoxville that ho is a Republi
can he would not volunteer to endorse as a
,; courteous gentleman," a follow who is re
garded with contempt by nil parties hero.

"Lying as a Fine Art."
1 0 our Lul issue we stirred up tbo animals of the
dirty little copperhead paper in this place. We gave
special offense to an unprincipled, lying, cowardly
dog, by name T. B. Kirby.
In tin editorial we copied an extract of a loiter
from Chattanooga relative to Kirby. The scoun
drel alleges that no such letter was ever received by
us, but tbat we wrote the objectionable extract. On
this subject ho says :
We have cause to believe thai tun pretended ex
tract of a letter from Chattanooga was composed by
tbe junior editor of tbe Whir;, who knew that he
was guilty of a deliberate falsehood in writing it.
And we are confirmed iit ihi belief by Vie fact that
tee called upon Col. B.'ownlow for tiie author of the
letter and he refused to give it to us.
A moro infamous liar could not be found than be
who would write tbe .'wve. Kirby stopped us or
hailed us on tho stroei- and asked : "Who wrote that
letter from Chattanooga?" We replied, in sub
stance, tbat while tho xx nter did not re juest tbat his
name bo withheld, yet we would do so if he merely
w'uhed u to gratify bis curiosity. He insisted on
being informed of the authorship, whan we told
him emphatically and repeated it, if ha Jeuuuuicd
the name of tbe author with a view to getting any
satisfaction from him, we fell bound to give bis
c ame, and would then do to. He replied Ledid not
thus ask bis name.
He staled to ua lb it tbe statements of tbe writer
of the letter were false, but calling us familiarly
John, was very explicit in saying we had been im
puted upon, that tbe writer of the letter was a liar.
Tbe entire letter from which we extracted the
material portion is as follows :
Chattasooga, May 25, 1868.
Governor lirovrUoio :
Sir: This is to inform you tbat Dr. While read
in my bearing a copy of the Whio about that editor
of the rebel paper in your town, Mr. Kirby. He
was a Major in the 4itb colored regiment, and in
November of 1868 be was a member of our Union
League, and ran for Marshall on tbe Union ticket,
but "old out to Mr. Beach, the rebel candidate.
Your friend, P. W. Bmallzt.
Tbe senior editor novel aaw the above until it ap
pear 4J in print. We mention this lest the little
fellow may imagico that the senior editor bas xin
eidered him worthy of notice.
Tbe truth is, it is not the statements contained in
the letter about Beach or the Union League which
offends Kirby. It is the publication by us of his
having beon an officer of a colored regiment. This
sticks him. He dislikes to have the Conservatives
reminded of this, for he kuowg that it causes his
party to distrust bim and regard him with contempt.
We have not space to do him justice in one paper.
We will soon start a ti i-weekly, and then we will give
some chapters in Eirby's history which will prick
him more effectually than anything we have pub
lished. When h came here he evinced a little
modesty. Influenced by Fleming and others, he
has taken liberties which could not be excused in a
man accustomed to mingle with gentlemen, much
less his degraded self.
liebel Blasphemy and Rejoicings over
the Governor's Supposed Death.
Tbe little copperhead paper of Knoxville, edited
by John Mitchell Fleming and the ex-Major of a
colored regiment, bas repeatedly published blasphe
mous and scurrilous attacks on, and allusions to
the Governor in connection with hi? ill-health and
reported death.
A few weeks since, tbe Knoxville paper malic
iously published that be was dying. This
called forth such blasphemy from a portion of
tho Southern press 3 Brick Pomeroy writes on the
death of Lincoln. Tbe purpose of the Press and
Herald was to evoke just such blasphemy and black
guardism as wo have roferrei to, and then publish
the same. This il has done, with the blasphemous
rejoicings over tha supposed death of the Governor,
written by that corrupt, drunken Catholic priest,
A. J. Ilyan.
Since Fleming, who is, wheu sober, the chief edi
tor of this dirty little paper, and a leader in the
party, wants it known tbat certain people would
regard the death 01 as Brownlow a groat bless
ing, it may not bo amiss to prognosticate tba sensa
tion his demise would produce. We will not say
that any body would now rejoice at it, but there are
soveral hundred men who would not have regretted
his death in infancy had their "fore-sights been as
good .is their hind-sights." Of this numbor wa
might unmet lie poor x-rebul authorities of Emory
and Henry College, Va., to whom he is now indebt
ed for his board and tuition while receiving the ed
ucation which enables him to blackguard and slan
der bis betters. We might mention the names of
numerous rebel merchants to whom he is iudobtej
for the necessaries of life obtained before the war.
We migh give tbe names of almost every whisky
dealer in Knoxville and surrounding counties who
have cbargd "drinks" to him until their stationery
has been exhausted. And, finally, we might give
the names of a ho:-l of rebel client whose money,
placed in bis hands to pay costs against thorn in
treason cases in the Federal Courts, he has expend
ed. Tho receipts for the money in some of these
c tsas have been placed in tho hands of lawyers here
for collection. Money handed hini to save these poor
rebebthe trouble and expense of coming to Knoxville
when the case3 should be disposed of. In every in
stance of whioh wo have any knowledge, where the
cases have gone off the docket, tbe parties have been
compelled to pay tbe costs for which provision was
made with the money placed in Fleming's hands.
But for our aversion to being personal, we might
give tbe uixuies of tbe following ex-rebels of the un
fortunate cla of Fleming's clients referred to
abovo :
Jackson L. Cox, Knox county.
F. M. Gregg, Cocke county.
Royal Stokely, " "
Charles Stckely, "
David V. Stokely, " '
There are other matters to which we may refer in
a future issue of the Whig. Tbe class of persons
whom we bavo named are all of Fleming's party.
We don't know tbat any of them would publish,
were tbey editing a paper, blasphemous rejoicings
over the supposed death of a political opponent, but
we doubt not they feel that society would have been
no lofer had Fleming "shuffled off this mortal coil"
while in his svraddling clothes." Not as with
tboso who rejoice at the jihyslcal prostration of
Brownlow solely because of political animosity, but
because Fleming is a nuisance to society a libel
upon humanity.
We will notice in another column tbe little bench
leg dog connected wilh Fleming.

The conviction of Tbeopbilun C Callicett, the
Brooklyn collector of internal revenuo, for frauds
on the treasury, following so soon after tbe convic
tion of tho distiller, Devlin, in the same court, shews
an unusual aud wmniendable degree of vigilance
and energy in tbe prosecuting authorities of that
district, and one which thoir colleagues in other
parts of tha country yould do well to imitate. Mr.
Callicott is a maa well known in public and politi
cal life in New York, and previous to his revenue
frauds, bis character had been above suspicion. He
wa formerly speaker of the New York Assembly,
and ditpbarjjed the duties of the position in a man
nor which has never beun surpassed. He executed
wveral important commissions from the Treasury
Department in the Southern Stales, just after the
close of the war, and always with fidelity and cred
it. ut Co wbikky temptation was too strong for
him. Of b!s guilt thers, could be 110 doubt. It is

Thin rotten old party brought on the late bboly
and villainous war, and now proposes to re-organ-i;eaid
bring on another war. At tbo time the
rebellion was iuauguraled, every one of the eleven
seceded States had a Democratic Governor and a
Democratic Legislature. These carried their States
out, and wheeled into line under Jeff. Duvis. Now
they ask old Whigs and Union Democrats to go
with tham into another most infernal rebel crusade
against the peace and liberty of the country, under
the lead of such men as Forest and Elheridge. Men
who have been Union Whigs and Democrats all
their lives, are now invited to join this new rebel
Democratio party, to aid in putting such men as
Jeff. Davis, Gen. Forest, and renogade Etharidge in
office I Nay, more, they ask ex-Federal officers
and soldiers to go into this grey-back conspiracy
ngainst the Union I Will they do it? We shall
gee. Senior editor.
BttnK BixwN'i f rvcry description done
at the Winn Oftkv
Party and Principles.
Under this heading the Norwich (Conu.) Co urUrt
ene of our ablest exchangee, says :
We believe in tha republican party, advocate the
republican parly, and strive for the success of tbe
republican party, because we toiieve iu, advocate
and strive for tho iucoos3 of its essential principles.
These principles are radical, inasmuch as they are
thoroughly and truly d3iiiocratic ; aud to give them
influence and efficiency tbey must be tho centre and
life of a political organization. Hence, and hence
only the necessity for a party a republican party.
This party must submit to the difficulties and dan
gers which in the nature of things be3et and plague
all parties. It mut and will, from timo to time,
have men and measures foisted upon it and con
nected with it that are troublesome; but which in
no wise belong to its substantial character, or touch
its genuine vitality. Whilst it is overwhelmingly
dominant, soldiers of fortune, ambitious aspirants
for petty and high offices, speculators and intrigu
ers with i numerable axes to grind, idolatora of pet
and impracticable theories for reformingthe human
race generally, in the twinkling of an eye every
body and everything that hopes to use mighty ma
chinery for special or personal ends will flock to its
banner and insist upon being recognized in its ranks,
and be, very likely, among it nio-t vociferous agi
tators. Here is an evil ; but not an unprecedented evil;
not an evil peculiar to tba ascendancy of the popu
lar majority that has administered public affairs
for the past eight years. It ought not to disturb or
frighten those who road history aright or understand
bow the world gets on progressivaly in the long run.
Yet we have alarmists, ever anxious for the fate of
the republican party ; ever troubled lest it should
meet with some temporary or real discomfiture j
ever nervous ar.d feverish if anything is said or
done that may alienate, on sides issues, a few votes.
Tbtie innocent malcontents and croakers play into
the hands of the "opposition."
It is precious moonshine, the whole of this pro
phecy whether it coino from tbo lips of weak
friends or from those of porsiftent enemios.
F.Ve principles of the republican party are sure to
triumph, for ihey represent the principles of our free
institutions, the ideas of the ago, and the motive
force of advancing civilisation. Tbey are tba an
tagonists of caste systems and monopolies, of tbe
tyranny of the few over the many, t aristocratic
violations of inalienable human rtht3. In this
fact reside their inherent strength c..-i their unas
sailable life. Tbey are tlio rallying cries of a revo
lution the world over, aud revolution cannot go
backward. Why should faith in theaj waver? Wby
should they cease to be chorishad as immovable
convictions ? Especially why should there be any
distrust of their potency in crises that seem like
convulsions? Are we to learn no lessons from tbe
experience of tb9 past? In this country these
principles havo been already subject to tha severest
of ordeals, and tho heads, hearts and strong right
arms of the people rushed to thoir rescue. What
has been, will again be, wheu ever there u noed of
a manifestation of popular devotion to the cause of
equal justice, impartial laws and corjl;la'.iouaf lib
erty. Tbe party consecrated la the maintenance
and defence of thia cause cannot fail, unless human
nature is to prove false to its uobloal instincts and
refuse to accept tbe grandest opportunities.
Hon. S. 31. Arnell.
On the 6th instant tha Congressional Coiixoii.iou
of the Cth District nominated Mr. Arnell for re
election to Congress. This is a merited tribute to
as worthy a gentleman and unflinching Republican
as can be found in the State. Every loyal man in
East Tennessee will bo gratirlod to hear of Mr. Ar
oell's re-nomination. His nomination is equivalent
to an election. The Convention selected Mr. O. F.
Brown as District Elector. From what we know of
Mr. Brown, we consider this a good selection.
Flake's Budetiii, of Galveston, Texas, give an
account of throe men who waylaid and murdered
a maa by the name of Masters. Tbey were subse
quently captured and executed by the citizens. One
of the desperadoes gave his name B3 James F. Leo,
of Bradley county, Tennessee.
The manner in which Le met death is thus de
scribed by the Eidlctin'j
Loo cooly proposed climbing tbo troo and tying
the rope to hang himself. Tho ropo was fixed, he
remarked, "that's not right," and moved the knot
around to tho sid.x of his neck in true hangman's
style sprung from the limb himself, and thus cast
his guilty soul intothepresauceof God. Thetbanks
of the whole country are due the gallant band who
pursued and captured these infamous scoundrels.

Iu loyal old Blount county a man htil to apol

flag in honor of the acquittal of the Preaiderl."
Prcn and Ucr&li.
Yes, but it was the radical rebels tbat required
tbe apology. A man who had been a Union soldier,
but is now a Conservative, did put his Cg out from
up ttairs over the door of a store houe occupied by
original rebels. The rebels Cuajplaiuod about it aud
desired tbe soldier to take ii down. The Conserva
tive insisted ou keeping it to the breeze. At this
the Radicals rejoiced, and feel that there is aouia
hope for a man who thinks in th sober laoocntj
more of the sUrs and stripes than he doo of tba

McSIInn County.
During ibe past week we made & visit to Athens,
tbo capita of the glorious old commonwealth of
McMinn. As we expected, McMinn is O. E. Her
loyal people those who were, with vory few ex
ceptions, loyal during the war aro unanimous and
enthuMa-tic for Grant and Colfax. Whatevor may
be the dispositien ia other quarters of the copper
head element, Ihey " roost low " in McMinn.
We were net a little amused at tho appcamnco of
old David Clcaguo. Ever since '63, he Las been
grieving himself to death becauoO of the' damage
done him by Forrest, in bis raid on Athens. Since
his return from the Nashville Convention, where
Forrest, wilh whip in han d, assigned the poor old
man his place in the harnsss, be has looked discon
solate. Nashville Branch Road
It is gratifying to know that the work upon this
importiint railroad ia satisfactorily progressing. In
a few days track-laying will be resumed and pushed
forward I London, forty-seven mile3 lrom crao
Orchard. Thi3 w ill leave a gap of only forty miles
to the Stale line, where a junction is to bo formed
with the Knoxville and Kentucky road. The Ten
nessee portion of the road is in coarse of construc
tion, and will be Unshed to the State Una before or
simultaneously with tbe completion, of the Knox
ville branch. Thus will Knoxville and East Ten
nessee have direct communication with Cinciar.ati
and Louisville. When this occurs great will bo
East Tennessee, Knoxville and the KnoXVIXLI
Weig. Then will Knoxville be a second New
York, aad the WHia it second New York Tribune.
. s
Hon. E. S. Sutler.
We are gratifled to announce that a bill has pars
ed relieving Hon. R. R.. Butler of the disabilities
under which he has labored. Judge Butler was
elected by the most loyal district in the State, and
there is but one district in the United State3 which
gives a larger Radical majority. He bas made
good fight for the Republican party, and deserves
to bo admitted to his seat.
The Work Goes Bravely on.
On Fridav, tho 12th, the House cf RepresenU-
livA.;- with wonderful unanimity, passed tho -'Om
nibus Eoconttruetion Bill," precisely as il was
passed by the Senate. The bill provides for the ad
misoion of North and 3outh Carolina, Georgia,
Florida, Alabama and Louibiana. An amendment
was offered to exclude Alabama and Florida, but
it was voted down. Thus it is shown that the charge
that tbe Radicals have been opposed to a rccon
structiou of tho Union is a lie. Those in Congress
who voted against restoring those States were Con
Small Material for Party Capital and Mar
tyrdom. The Nashville papers have published what origi
nally appeared in the dirty, lying Press and Her
ald, of this city, that the company of United States
troop? stationed here had ben removed because of
tho politic of tho officer in command, Lieutenant
Payne. This is simply a lio. Col. Hough, of Gen
Thomas' staff, told us, and told Kirby, of the Press
and Herald, that Payne's political opinions had no
thing whatever to do with his removal or his (Col
Hough's) investigation. The facts are that they
wero removed because of the lawlessness and bad
conduct of tho men. No discipline was enforced,
and of this Col. Hough was satisfied by investigation-
If wo were disposed, we could specify.
Roane County Convention.
la our last the proceedings of tha Roane County
Convention were crowded out for want of spaco.
The Convontion appointed delegates to tho Knox
villa itnd Nashvillo Conventions, and ratified the
Chicago nominations.
Isaac A. Clark Chairman, and W. B. Eeed
A fine speech was delivered by that storiicg old
patriot, Judge S. L. Childress, after which tho fol
lowing gentlemen were appointed a Committed on
Resolutions: W. S. Patton, S. L. Childress, John
Blair, Simeon Hassler and Michael Robeson. Tbe
committee retired, and after a short absence return
ed, and reported tbe following resolutions, which
were unanimously and enthusiastically adopted :
We the Union Republican men of Roane County,
having assembled together in convention for ibe
purpose of renewing our vows of fidelity to our
country and our country's cau;c to tbe great and
glorious principles of universal freedom and the
nghu of man embodied in tbe Declaration of In-
depeudonow, tnd wblcQ form llW foundation Upon
which are built tbe onduring doctrines aud tenets
of tbe groat Republican party, do hereby declaro,
lut. Tbat we give our hearty concurrence to tbe
declaration of principles put forth by our party in
convention assembled at Chicago, and accept the
sarao as the truo principles and tbe only cues
upon which the government can be administered
so as to secure a lasting peace, eecurity for the fu
ture and ibe just rights cf all.
2nd. That we hereby tender to the members of
the Republican National Convention our thank,
lor tbe wise and patriotic manner in which tbey
have discharged their dutien.
2d. That we warmly approve cf and ratify the
nominaiion of Gn. Uly3eg S. Grant for President,
and of tbe Hon. Schuyler Colfax for Vice President
of tbe United States, believing the nominations,
every way, ' eminently fit to bo made," in every re
spect worthy ot the party, commanding our admi
ration, our zealous, earnest and enthusiastic sup
port ; and we do heroby pledge ourselves to u:o all j
Honorable means to bring about tho triumphant
success of tha ticket.
4th. That wo express our entire approbation of,
and eomplolo satisfaction witb, tho wise, uniform
and consistent schema of Reconstruction so happily
6ih. That tbe wanton, shamole.-s and glaring
troachery of Joseph S. Fowler, our Senator in Con"
gresi, merits tbe scorn and contempt of every truo
Republican and honest man in the land, and will
most assuredly and effectually consign hira to tbe
shades of that political death, which ho seems so
eager and ambitious to reacn, and for which he is
now so eminently fitted and prepared.
Tbat while by tho treachery and infidelity of bas
tard Republicans we as a nation are inflicted with
the cursa of Andrew Johnson for nino months
longer; yet, relying upon the eternal justice of our
cause and tbe Divine favor with an abiding and
an all abounding faith, we ;'hopo to se tho Curse
removed," tbat after the 4ih of March naxt no
longer as in the past three years, will disloyalty,
treachery, and unblushing, shameless venalitv and
corruption bold high revel in the Executive "Mansion.
Confederate States." Every man, woman and
child knows that tbo war was commenced by the
South, that the South first beat up for troops, first
fired upon tbe Star of the West, and then upon
Fort Sumter, and all because " the people of the
tnited fciales eieelod Lincoln to tbe Presidency.
It is passing slrango that men of sense and char
acter ahould bare laaned their names aud influence
to bolster up such a batch of fal.ehooU. an are set
forth iu this call. T. 2tixon Van Dyke, the writer
of tha libel, was al Camp Chase for soma lime.
It is scarcely noeessary to add that tli a gentle
men who6olemn!y declared thtt the United Stales
began tbe late war, are now loud-mouthed Conser
vatives, and swear that the Radicals are the cause
of all our troubles. Of ourse they are opposed to
Grant and Co! fas :
or M'siiyy county.
Inasmuch as heretofore there has Aeen a differ
ence of opiaioa arr.ongthe citizens of McMinn
county upoi. the subject of the present war, waged
by the Lcil-a Mates uovernaieni. KajUai. buo j,Cj
ple of th; Government of the Confederate States,
superiiilce-i generully, if not universally, by n
difference of opinion as to the causes and cbjacta of
the war, but the undersigned, feeling that now there
should not to, and possibly is not, but one opinion
and determination among us, and that is, tbat the
whelp people of the Confederate butcs should re
sist at all ha-ards and to ihe last extremity, tha at
tempt now niiinifestod by tha United States Gov
ernment to subjugate tbe people of the Confederate
Stales ; and further believing that it is tha duty of
al! nicH, due as well to themselves as to each other
aad to the Goverameut, to make a pablic manifea
taticn of their foolings, so that privaw and public
confidence may be restored and established ia re
gard to the loyalty of all men : therefore, it is re
quested tbat the citizens of McMinn county meet
at tbe C-rt House ia Athens, oa the first Monday
in October, 1862, to consider the present condition
of the country, and to give ft public expression cf
their feeling and intentions in regard to tha same.
