The Tennessee Election.
Tho election in TcnncBSco, contrary
t6 general expectation, passed off in
fho quietest possible mnuner. Tho ro
suit is n decided Union victory. Gov
ernor Brownlow's majority will not bo
far from twenty thousand. Trimble,
.Stokes, Arncll, Maynard, Hawkins,
Mullins, Munn and Butler, all llepub
Jicans, aro elected to Congress by
handsomo majorities. Both branches
of tho Legislature will bo strong Union,
which makes tho election of Horaco
Mnynard to tho United States Sonato
a foregono conclusion. Wo givo tho
voto of some of tho principal towns
for Governor: Nashville Brownlow
31G3, Ethoridgo 701. Murfrecsboro
gives Brownlow a majority of G19.
Columbia gives Brownlow 1449 votes,
and Ethoridgo 148. Tullahoma gives
Brownlow ten majority. Humboldt,
in Carroll county, Ethoridgo 61 and
Brownlow 24. Brownlowvillo, in Hay
wood county, gives Brownlow 7G4 and
Ethoridgo 133. Gallatin gives Brown
low 309 and Ethoridgo 122.
Many of tho negroes voted tho Con
servative ticket. Somo of tho froed
mcn who voted the Radical tickot have
locn discharged by their employers.
Employment will most likely bo found
for them by Gen. Groesbeck. Tho
frecdmen evinced great pleasure at tho
.idea of voting, and in somo instances
marched in solid column to tho polls.
Jxow that tho election is over, it is to
bo hoped that the troubles in Tennessee
will ceaso. Tho election has boon
conducted fairly, tho negroes being al
lowed to voto as thoy in their judg
ment thought best. They have been
addressed by Conservative and Union
speakers; but it is not nt all etrango
that tho groat bulk of them should
think t for their interest to vote tho
Union ticket, as thoy did. Thoy ovi
dcntly know who aro their friends.

Enosuukou, Aug. Gth, 18G7.
Mn. Editor: I havo been a soldier,
and can apprcciato their feolings when
thoy aro unjustly attacked. 1 am par
ticu'arly grieved when I boo that it is
done for political purposes, as in tho
case of Myron W. Bailoy, Esq., tho
present nominee for Judgo of Probato
in this County. While in St. Albans
tho other day, I heard a man of influ
ence, olectioneorin g against Mr. Bailoy,
because ho said ho was not compotont
to dischargo tho duties of tho Office.
I made further inquiries, and found
that tho story had its origin with somo
of tho friends of Judgo Samson. I
will not say that tho Judgo himsolf,
originated any thing of tho kind, be
cause I havo always supposed him to
bo abovo any such imputation.
I havo known Mr. Bailoy sinco boy
hood, and I am proud to say that ho
6 a man of more than ordinary tal
ents, and is in every respect qualified
and competent to dischargo tho duties
of tho offico of Judgo of Probato. As
s lawyer, ho has won a respectable
position among his brothron at tho
bar, in all tho branches of law. As a
ponman, ho may not quito equal tho
present incumbent, but ho is ahead of
three-fourths of tho Judges and Reg
isters in tho State.
Then why this tirado against him? Is
it because ho flow to the rcscuo of his
Country, in tho first hours of its dan
ger, nnd contributed all but his life in
hor defence, whilo tho present incum
bont enjoyed tho cmolumonta of offico
with his family at homo, and contrib
uted nothing ? This is tho question
tho people of this County aro to an
swer in September next I am anxi
ously wailing with a nurubor of other
follow soldiers, to see how tho question
will bo answered at tho polls. I nm
of tho number who was told that whon
tho war was over, tho scarred veterans
would bo remembered, but I carl not
bolievo that au intelligent pooplo will
forget an intolligont 6oldicr so soon.
Jt so, I will thank somo ono or more
m each town in this County to pre
serve the names of those who aro now
opposing Mr. Bailoy, (who was nomi
nated in Convention by a largo majori
ty,) and tho people will then know to
what party or sect they belong. Will
ray fellow soldierB look to this matter.

of a Spring which seems to bo in all

oxtremcly pnro and clear. It has a
slight sulphuric tasto nnd smell, and
in this respect is somowbat liko tho

Spring is daily visited by n largo num
ber of pooplo who aro testing its med

properties, and in time cannot fail to
bo widely sought for by invalid.-.. Tho
water is soon to bo analyzed, when tho
public will bo mndo acquainted with
ita ingredients. Tho location of tho
