Corn Wanted.
We wish to purchase 75 or 100 bushels
Corn, new crop, and, as all the fools are
not dead yet, will pay for it in either
Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, or
Confederate money, just as the party may
desire. "
N. B. If our friend in the Knob l)ls
trict who owes us something less than two
hundred bushels, o'n acoount of subscrip
tion and other valuable considerations,
don't send it in at an early day, we shall
always think he ought to. We are a man
of patience -and long-suffering, but we
don't like to see a fellow act gunner too

In consequence of the sickness of one
of our workmen, we are compelled to dis
appoint two of three friends about some
Job Work that has been in the office se
veral weeks. " Very sorry; but can't help

Horrible Murder.
Mr. Jacod Womack, an old citizen of
Meigs county, near thoMcMinn line, was
murdered by two of his slaves on Tues
day of last week. There was no other
White person on the farm at the tituej
.but it appears. from the statements pft
... . ... f
some ot the slaves, ttiet on Tuesday af
ternoon Mr. Womack attempted to cor
rect one of the negroea for some misde
meanorthe negro resisted, knocked his
master down, and jumped upon him. He
called to another boy, who was within
hearing, to come and take his assailant
off. The boy ran up, but, instead of as
sisting his master, handed a knife to the
other negro, with which he immediately
- -cut the struggling man's throat from ear
to ear, and mangled him in a horrible
manner. The body was taken by the ne
groes to the creek, sunk and covered with
drift and logs where it was found on
t Re day following, through the disclosures
of a third negro who was privy to the
concealment. One of the negroes engag
ed in the killing, we learn made his es
cape and is still at large; the other was
arrested by the neighbors, and, as soon as
tho facts were macle sufficiently clear(
was hung by them on a troe near where
the crime was committed.
Mr. Womack was some sixty years of
ago, and owned considerable property.
The Revenue.
A bill has been reported from the Com
mittee of Ways and Means, in the Con
federate Congress, which proposes a tax
of one-fifth of the income of every person in
the Confederate States during the year
18G2. '
The Knoxville Register says it is a good
measure We say it is not only not good,
but that tho member ' from Tennessee
who votes for it will get liberty to stay at
home the balance of his life, unburthen
ed by public cares.
tF Lincoln's Proclamation changes
tlie whole character of the contest, and
renders the war on the part of the North
solely and avowedly for the Abolition of
Slavery and the Establishment of Negro
Equality. We don't care if a man owns
a hundred niggers, if he continues to
cling to the Lincoln government and
hopes and desires its success, be is just as
good an Aboltionist, and practically as
much in favor of Negro Equality, as Wen
dell Philips, Garrison, Greeley, or any of
the run-mad fanatics of the ultra school.
We now want to see how many of the
East Tennessee sympathisers will gulp
Honest Abe's Free Nigger Proclamation.

There is great demand for leather, and
very little to be had, which will bring al

A Call for a Publio Meeting of the
. Cittaens of McMinn County.
Inasranoh si heretofore there has been it dif
ference of opinion among the eitUens of McMlon
county apon the subjeot of the present war, waged
by the United Btstes Government against the
people of the Government of the Confederate
States, supcrlnduoed generally, If not universal
ly, by a difference of opinion as to the ostites and
objects of the war, but the undersigned feeling
that now there should not be, and possibly is not,
but one opinion and determination among ns, and
that Is', that the whole people of the Confederate
States should resist at all hassrds and to the last
extremity the attempt now manifested by the
United States Govern raout to subjugate the peo
ple of the Confederate Stateii and furthor bcl lov
ing that it Is the duty of all men, due as well to
themselves as to each other and to the Govern
ment, to make a public manifestation of their
footings, so that private and publio confidence
may be restored and established in regard to the
loyalty of all men) therefore, it Is requested that
the otlliens of McMinn county meet at the Court

- - From the Potomac
From the Richmond Enquirer, of the 25th.
The lute events on the Potomac, since
We capture of Harper's Ferry, may be
stated thus:
' On Thursday, the 16th, Lee whose
ferces were concentrating at Sharpsburg,
was confronted by McClellan who had
CSllowed him thither from Boonsboro' the
tmm tjifoaa On Tiiaarlnit nweninq jk. light
nd harmless cannonade occured lasting
a few hours. Un the next clay the great
Rattle of Sharpsburg, was fought, lasting
until nieht. Som'e of General Lee's forces
arrived during the action, 1 portion of
them at an advanced hour. The close
of the battle left us in possession of the
field; and on the next morning it was
discovered that McClellan had retreated.
: Gen. Lee held the field all day Thurs
day, caring for the wounded and the
dead. He then crossed the Potomac,
which was only about two miles distant,
and took position at or near Shepards
town. We think he thus moved nearly
or quite his whole army.
Tbe general ot the enemy ascertaining
his withdrawal to the south side, began
what they call their pursuit. Perhaps
ap--Ueceived to some extent by the . stories
with which they deceive their people,
they even ventured to throw over a force
of ten thousand men to press the flight of
the "disorganize' uonteaerates. now
this expedition fared, on Saturday last,
let the telegram in another column tell!
Another chastisement, swift and sudden
and severe has fallen upon the enemy
from tbe band of Jackson.
General Lee'a present position we do
not know whether he is still on the
.South side or whether he has crossed his
army to the other. But he has his plans,
and himself and his army, crowned with
fame of new exploits, are in tbe highest
spirits. We will not even guess at his pains
lest it might suggest the right idea to the
But surely Gen. Lee can be cheerfully
trusted to mange the operations confided
to him. That he will do this to the best
advantage, may well be inferred from his
brilliant career, from the campaign on
the Chickahominy to this hour. His
plans have been admirably conceived
admirably conoealed from the enemy,
and admirably executed. To the enemy
he must seem like a cross-eyed man, nev
er striking where he seems to be looking.

Jiou' the Kapidan to Manassas he lias
disgraced McClellan again, by tbe cap
ture of Harper's Ferry with nearly twelve
thousand prisoners, right before his eyes,
while McClellan thought he was about to
jftike at Harrisburg or Washington.
'While he has managed well, his officers
end soldiers have .executed like heroes,
and continued success has gladdened the
theart of the country.

There is reason to hope that the Gov

question of appointing a successor to Gen.
Buell, if not also to that of assigning one
General to Ihe command of all the West.
Gen. White and Cols. Ford, Trimble
and D'Utassey, w&o were acting Briga

ried to Washington under arrest, to await
investigation of all circumstances attend

The Tribune says:
The indignation among small army offi
cers of a certain class on account of the
-President's proclamation, is very great.
Instead of finding vent in resignation, as
was threatened, it takes the direction of
abuse ot tho colored people. Many,
