The Post, from first to last, so far ns its influence extended, threw cold wafer upon the nomination of Oeni.ry, nnd has treated in n spirit, of ridicule, the American organization. We can snv to ihe iiinn of tho Post, that bis "moro or less Vhie," who refused to vote for the American candidates heeause of the ' for iiiula and tliiiti'uery" of the Order, enn now vote for who they ph'.'ise, nnd join whatever party they please. The American pnrLy wants no man or set of men in its ranks, who oh jeet. to the Philadelphia Platform. Kwjjnille Whig. The above paragraph is wrong- at lenst in its purport, if not in the spirit which dictat ed it, ns our readers all know. Pr.'or to the time Mr. Gentry was said to have been iiomi tinted the "Post" opposed his running, nnd in doing so, the paper truly and faithfully re flected tho feelings of its political friends in this nnd neighboring counties, insisting that he was not the most available man. Our ar ticles, however, were not dictatorial nor defi cient in thnt eouitesy due lo an honest differ cnec of opinion, although we were accused of being refractory and our motives questioned. Hut ns soon as wo were satisliid there was lo be no regular nomination, and that the contevt must be between tier try and Johnson, we not only ceased to oppose the former, but. went, into the tight wild all ,he ability and energy we possessed with whal effect it is not of course for us to sny. We claim no credit for our course, as we done just what we conceived was our duty under the circumstances, and not because we had X changed our opinion as to the policr of the step that placed Mr. '..'entry in tho field. It is li ce, we have nt times spukeii lightly of the imheeiliiy and want of judgment di.-plav-ed by meiabus of the order, l-ccuu-e these were the worst things v.e had to contend nfl.n-t in Ms strung democratic section. But so far flora ridiculing the priucipUt of the American party, we think our paper dur ing the canvass would not lose a great deal in comparison with most of its cntcmpornt-ics in its advocacy of those principles as enunciate and set forth in the Philadelphia plalform. It is certainly very kind nud considerate in the Whig to give notice, every week, of the immense fact that those who do not wMi lo net with the American parly have the l-iht to connect tlicniselves w iih any other. Tho permission so graciously e.tended will, no doubt, relievo a great many who felt cramp ed and at a loss to know what lo do; but wo put it to the good sense of the editor of thut paper whether Iho party is so strong, or is likely to be, that it can ufford to push otf cu tiiely the "more or less whigs" fordoing iu the lute contest precisely what ill. (Jciitry did in the last Presidential canvass refusing to rilo olf under what they considered an ob jectionable nud inauspicious lead; and whe thcr u less assuming nnd more concilintorv policy might not be productive of happier results. if Tlte local editor of tho Clarksvillo Chioniclu complains that we published one of his paragraphs without thu proper credit. We beg his pardon, although we believe the paragraph iu question appeared oil the out side of our paper, nud of eoursn was not in tended to bo approprialnl ns our own. We will endeavor to bo more careful iu future.

Soma one of our exchange papers very appositely remarks: There n one clns of mon In cvory coin niuniiy who do not take a homo paper, bo. causo they gut somo eastern paper n little ehenpor. Such nro always foreign In their thoughts nnd knowledge, lie in Inct in nn Intellectual point of view does not Mvu in the community where his body walks nlnond ilui'v, but over the columns of the E isiuin paper, lie lives ill the scenes tr.mviclions of Iho viiy nnd Suite, nnd is slailled onco in a while by nn item of news, which his nclgh. bora who Inko a home piper, knew two weeks before, and ho na ho meets them bores them lo death with whntisnews lo him bill old nud stalo to his neighbors. And yet, poor man, be is perfectly unconscious that he is ft bore. and is laughed ut behind his back, for being behind the intelligence of Iho limes. We have been not ft little annoyed oil. selves with some oflhoso men who do not taken homo paper. Men who feel the greatest In tcrcsl iu Iho election have como lo our ollieo tho day alter we published the news, nnd put us to the trouble uflelling itiOl over to them, by tho word of mouth. Wo think if they cannot afford to take a hoinu paper they ought tu Wail two Weeks until (hey can gel it through the eastern papers. It seems to us if these men w ho do not lake ft homo paper, were nwaro that every b..a do meets nnd ticsrs Iheni converse, know lliein lo bo nt least fwo weeks behind the limes nnd wondered ut tho man's igno. ranee, they would not sleep until they had subscribed for some of Iheir home papers. Surh n man is always behind the Intelli. gonco of the age in every respccl. if lie is n farmer, produce goes up and down before he is uwnreofit. Banks fail nnd ho takes the money before hu is aware of it. Insu rance Companies fail, nnd his house is unin sured before lie is aware of it; nnd pcihaps his house dining that time bums down; and when he exults that hu is 'insured,' he is tohl by tho mau who takes a home paper, that tho company failed u week before. Jlis wild l:ili(l is sold for taxes, while he i.s pour, iug over the eolums of his cheap Eastern pa per; his entile stray, and involve him inn long bill of keeping, when if he had taken u home paper, ho w:uhl have seen them ndvei Used as taken up weeks before. Ho wants to sell ii farm, bul his neighbor, who takes a home paper, sees nn advertisement for one and sells bis nt a good price. And these and a thousand other ways, tho man who don't take a homo paper, is loo late for sup. per. Had he not much better subscribe! Jist as WK Said. Whenever our neighbor of tho Cleveland llnnner visits Knoxville, Chattanooga, or Athens, and compares the life, activity and enterprise manifest in these really prosperous towns with llic dullness and sterility from which he has temporarily escaped, he at oner gets huli'y, goes home iu a bad humor, nnd after a consultation with that facetious old gentleman, "tho Major," drops dow n in his chnir, nnd iu ft spirit of sheer envy, writes a whole column, in which his own little village is magnified into the commercial importance of n Xew York, v. line the places nbovc-nnii'-.-L! .cin.lle mio the insii-niilcatieo of mere road-sidu villages. To the former we certainly have no sort of objection if our neighbor thinks Cleveland needs, or can bo benefitted by, that sort of pvfimj, but we do protest against the al tempt lo depreciate tho business interests and im portance of more prominent places. Instead of uiaiiifesling a disposition to drag evei v other pUee down to nil inferior condi tion, how much more comuieiiJable would it be for the Banner to infuse into its home rend ers a spirit of enterprise and go-aheadative-ness that would enable them, in the course of time, to compete successfully w ith th Indus, try and thrift of their more pro-perous neigh bors! We have a very kindly filing toward the Banner man, nnd we know ho will par don us the Bllggw-tioli lhat his ronfmmm tliugs nt neighboring towns arc in rather bad taste for a man having such large and com prehensive interests under his special protec tion; and that while a little silly humor may be endured now and then from (hose juvenile editors who nrc presumed lo receivo occasion- al visits from the ghost of some departed w it, such extended linksns ho threw olf lust week ore calculated to breu.l contempt in the mind of the distnnt render for Iho puiee, the business interests of which, from Iheir oon slant repetition, may bo presumed by persons unacquainted with Hie foots to require such oxlrnurdiuury appliances to keep tlieiu up. From thu lnsl consideration, if no oilier, wo hope our neighbor will cease bis puerilities, and by way of varying the monotony of his editorial columns, favor us occasionally with piecoson Iho essentialities of foreign influence, tho doctrino of tho harmonies as exemplified iu the parallels between the Jetfersoniun and Johnsonian deinoeraey, and the patriotic pro. prietics of Sag Niehtism as contrasted with the heiuousiiess and disloyal purposes of the Kuow Nothings. Or, if ho has no appetite for theso, ft few practical essajs on Truth iiiiht do by the way of novolty. The lust might bo incomprehensible lo us, hut would bo intelligible, if-uot really refreshing, to his dciuocrulic renders.
