Somebody has started Andy for tbe Democratic nomination for Governor of Tennessee. Ua certainly is entitled to that distinguished honor and ought to have the nomination, we mean. But he will never succeed to tbe office now so ably filled by brave old Parson Brownlow. Andy has bad his say and his day. The political knaves and swindlers whose purpose he has songht to serve and who have lost do opportu nity to fl-.tter him into the notion that he is a second Jackson and " My Poli cy " is something superior, as a politi cal conception, to the Declaration cf Independence, are as indifferent re frarding bis fate as they are powerless So avert it.

It is unuecessary that the arguuieut in favor of the transfer hould be re-stated. 1 he necessity font be come stronger and more evident every day. Tbis recommendation ought to, and w boue wiil, have urccb. weight in de termining tbe action of the Seoate.

I need not refer to this wicked and maliei-.ics libel, now that the election is over, were it not that, having been so extensively p.fo lishcd, frson Maine to Nebraska, and voucbeJ for as authentic by edit. 'is who were sup posed to value their character for varscity, some earnest persons of on- ptrty or tl.e other, who-e g'.'d opinions I value, miht supp-'Se it possibly tri.e. Allow me. therefore, to say, as I did pub licly in this Sta'e lt month, when this cilumny au-iinst nie first appeared, that it in every wor.i and svil-.t.'.p, a f.-reerv ; that I never uttered such sentiments in 18-51, nor any t thor year, and that the vulvar :.nrl curilous languaiie embodied in it never fell from mv lips, nor were written bv toy piu. in that or any other connection, oa that or anv other theme. Precisely this same speech was printed bv the D. m err!ic pipers m th:s State number of years ago, ami then attribut. d to Air. u uson, who was a i.epub.ieari cndi date for Congress ; but, having been thus used with elf.ct in one campaign, it was re vamped in the recent canvass with my name attached to it. by the same editors, every one of whom knew that it was impossible foT me to use such vile language iu a speech on anv stlhject. It will doubtless be used against some other Republican c.ndidate hereafter ; and I have felt it, therefore, a dutv to expose its history and its falsity. Yours, truly. SCIlrTLKK COLFAX.
