The Fremout Journal of last w ek con tained an article front tho Chattanooga Daily Gazette of May 24th. iHi;.'), which is of great interest in the dispute now going on over Gen. Sherman's charges against the arch-traitor, is showing the estimation in which he was held by Ten nessee zz year ago. me following u the Gazette' article, as re-printed in tho Journal: "PROrilECT FULFILLED. "In the times of great national excite ment, when revolutions are impending and the very air seems filled with com ing political storms, men have occasion ally boen gifted with what has seemed to be a spirit of prophecy, and in afur years tlieir words haye been recalled to the memory of those who heard them spoken as predictions which only wailed fer events to prove that they were utter ed wiiti a foresight inspired by heaven. "On the evening of the 22d of January, 1801, Jefferson Davis, of Mississippi, on his way from Washington, where he had just delivered his last speech in the Uni ted States Senate, and in company with many other southern Senators and Con gressmen, resigned his seat in the Con gress, stopped at Chattanooga on his way home. It had been rumored during the day that he was coming, and in expeeta tion of seeing hi in a Urge crowd of peo pie had assembled at the Crutchfirld House. At that time, great excitement prevailed throughout the southern s;ate. Secession was being talked' of every where throngheut the Cotton States, as the only remedy left them by the elec tion of Abraham Lincoln to the Treti- dency of the United States, Tennessee had refused to adopt any such remedy and as the fire-eaters retired from tho Congress and pased through the city, they stopped over and made speeches to the people, urging upon them to go with the south and take part in the move ment. promising Tennessee that the state should never see a Federal soldier or ever be called upon to pay a dollar of the debt contracted by war. it was un der such circumstances that Davis ar rived in the eitv, as above stated. After supper on the evening named he came out of the dluing room at the hotel, ac companUd by his wife and several well known leaders ia the secession move meat. Calls were made for him to speak and a chair being placed in the center of the room, where the news stand now s, he stood upon it, and spoke substan ally as follows: GENTLEMEN The south has had great wrong imposed upon it by th election of Abraham Lincoln, au Illinois rail-splitter, to the Presidency of th United States. Our only resource is to secede from the Uuion and establish government fr ourselves. Calling on the people of Tennessee to go with th south, he pledged them that he only wanted their strength and influence that the cotton states would pay the debt of the war, and that lennessee would not haye a dollar to pay. Telling us that Mr. Buchanan was powerless and could not protect us; that v.e must unite .the south in a solid body, march on their elties and lay them in" ashes, for in that consisted their wealth and strength, and the way to touch a Yankee s soul was to strike his purse. The south had the mi terial cotton was king. France and old England, he said, could not do with out it. and would be forced to side with the south to keep their factories in oper ation and their people from starving That the spindles of New England would rust for want of cotton that the south had the wealth, strength and the power m reality the lire of tne government, Calling on the Tennesseeans to go with the south in this straggle, bo eulogized them for their courage, boasted of their deeds of daring on the Gelds of Mexico, saying that he knew full well the mean ing of the cliek of their trusty rifle. In ties, associations, interest and institu tions. Tennessee was directly interested and onght to Join the south. I. For that I love and respect him, but ow he is growing old aud gray, and, uusaMike, ambitious I Uphnlil nntir futura xlihtnrn Tiiiannt! 1 Iio gentleman tells that we are pow erless, that wo most appeal to arms for onr rights, that Mr. Buchanan cannot lp us, we must secede and appeal to the sword. 1 deny it. 1 deuonnce him as a renegaeo and a traitor, if be was contending for the rights, of the south nd the Interests of Tennessee he wonld lu the senate chamber, and with our Tennessee Senators and Congressmen defending our rights. On Joint ballot wh hud a majority of fourteen. No odds what tho north desired, they were pow rless.. Mr. CrutchOeld said that four years was a short time, that an appeal to the ballot box was tho place to settle the trouble, not secession. Teunesoe never stooped so low as to dictate to otb or states tho course that they should pur sue. I deny you the right to tell us what we shall do, we are freemen, and as such laim the right to think, speak and cc for ourselves.- We are uot to be hoodwinked, bam boozled and dragged into yonr southern eod osh aristorratir, tory-blooded South Carolina moborracy. Well you may boast of tho Tennessee an and the click of his rifle, for with our trusty rifle and onr motintalu boys we can whip out your Southern Confederacy and the balance of the world combined. We fight for the 'Union, tho eonstitution and the enforcement of the laws,', with onr trusty rifles and our banner aloft, and the gentleman will live to seethe day when the keen crack of the Tennes-. see rifle will not eouud so pleasant in his ears! During tho delivery of this bold speech tho crowd present listened with breath less attention, and at its conclusion the silence that ensued was unbroken except Uv the sound of the click of pistols, as those present prepared themselves for what every one expected to be a bloody frav. After a few moments Davis ad vanced into the center of the room, and in an agitated voice denounced the charges made against him by Crutch' field as false and asked if any gentleman present Indorsed what had been said. vvith one voice the crowd replied, ' we an do.' Anoihor scene of confusion and ex citement ensued, and for some minutes it was feared that bleod wonld be shed, but Davis made his way oat of the room and retired up stairs, and the assembly dispersed. "When Mr. crutehSeld uttered the words, 'Behold your future military des pot,' Davis was standing in thedoofVay, about six feet from him. Mr. crutch field's voice whs lowered, and in slow. measured tones, shakiug his finger at him, the prophetic language was used. Doubtless Davis has often since then re called the exciting scenes of that event ful night, and in looking back to tho.-e days it seems evident that nothing less than inspiration dictated the utterance of these words."

The election of Abraham Lin coln and the party sustaining him was equivalent to a direct war upon the south, lier pecnuar institutions were no longer safe, and there was now nothing left but to fight.

For a few minutes no one attempted any reply to Davis, when, suddenly.

This vear they meet at San Francisco, and, being a body of men who, wben ou a vacation, wish to make the moat of it in the way of recreation and comfort, they naturally choose the route to their, meeting place, which guarantees them eraatest immunity from danger and the juost facilities for slgnt-seelng and enjoyment en voyage. They have an open credit with the rail roads, for all lines transport them free of charge, hence their choice is a volun tary act upon their part. This year, the great balk of the fraternity chose the Great Rock Island Route, and were car ried toward the Occident In half a dozen of the magnificent new Pullman cars, for which this great route is noted They chose wisely and well, since they passed oyer a road with the smoothest of track, through a country of surprising fertility and loveliness, and while jour neying ate the best viands the market afforded, cooked and served in the yery best manner, and at night slept in the most luxurions sleeping ears to be fonnd ia the United States. A trne Engineer is observant aud quick to discern danger. There is nothing heedless or reckless in the composition of tho Kuights of tne Foot-board, hence their choice of the Rock Island ronre, was a compliment and a testimonial from men best qualified to judge, that the believed that the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway combines it its road bed, equipment and manage ment all the qualities that makes a railway worthy the patronage of the public. w.
