THE ELECTORAL .TICKET.
The publication of the following letter,
in reply to that of the Hon.Geo. W. Em
ery, Chairman Republican State Commit
tee, published on Tuesday morning has
been delayed because of the pressure upon
mirrnlnmns. It is siven now to answer
repeated inquiries as to whether the ap
tinintmrn t tendered in that letter has
been accepted: -
Knoxville Tenn. Oct. 15, 1S72.
Sib : Your esteemed favor of the 12th
inst. notifying me of my appointment as
onp. of the Electors for the State at Large
nnon the ReDublican ticket, to fill the va
cancy caused by the resignation of Judge
HouK, has been received. I thank you and
your associates lor tnc nonor mus conierr
ed and accept the nomination.
T do not know that I can address the
DeoDle of Tennessee at many points in the
few weeks left of.the canvass, hence I take
this opportunity of presenting to them
same considerations which I think should
influence them in voting for Grant and
The present canvass is unlike any wre
have had in this country, for in so far as
the policy and acts of the Republican par
ty for the past twelve eventful years are
concerned, we have the confession of our
opponents plainly made in their Cincinnati-Baltimore
conventions, that we were
right and they were wrong. We may
question the sincerity of this confession,
we may doubt that if successful their
promises would be fulfilled, but for all the
purposes of a canvass we have them upon
record as endorsing the wisdom and policy
of our party through the trying period to
which I have referred. We are not there
fore challenged to defend the past. We
can look to it for the record of the Democ
racy to judge by it what will probably be
their future, but they can not look to it for
such a purpose, for in confessing that our
acts have been wise and just, they offer an
assurance that it is a good guarantee for the
future. As to the past then, we need have
What is to divide us now? Purely a
choice of persons for President, and of the
policy they may be expected to pursue
for the future As between Gen. Grant
and Mr. Greeley, no sensible southern man
should hesitate to choose in favor of the
former. He has been more honorable,
fairer, and more conciliatory in his policy
towards the South than Greeley. There
is not a statute upon our books to-day, of
which the South complains, that has not
been fully indorsed or advocated
by Horace Greeley, I challenge
any man to point to a single unkind, un
charitable word Gen. Grant has ever ut
tered of the Southern people, or a single
act either private or official, dishonorable to
them or inimical to Southern interests.
As President, it was his duty to suppress
the violence that bands of lawless men in
flicted upon sections of the South, but if
in doing this, arbitrary measures were ne
cessary and some innocent men suffered,
as is always probable under such circum
stances, who should be held responsible for
it the turbulent spirits of the South who
incited the violence, or the President who
simply did his duty in protecting innocent
citizens in their persons and property ? If
the treneral policy of Gen. Grant has been
of the character claimed, is it not far better
policy for the South to show by its votes
that it appreciates such acts and thereby
establish some claim upon the President
personally for the coming four years, than
to vote for Horace Greeley, who was ear
liest and most importunate after the war in
his demands for a proscnptive, sweeping
reconstruction policy ? If the South pas
sionately turns its back upon President
urant ana his fair, nonorauie policy
and takes in preference Horace Orreeley
whose zeal for reconciliation, etc., is suspr
cious, because of its intensity and death
bed character, will it not be calculated to
repel the President and his Administra
tion from the South ? Let the people of
the Southern States accept Grant's record
and acts as in good faith and as conciliato
ry, and show him by their votes that they
have confidence in his patriotism and
justice, and they will have tar better guar
antees for that " reconciliation " they
profess to seek and for the tranouilitv and
recuperation of the South, than by blindly,
IOllO Wing alter weeiejr, who is not HOW
and is never likely to be in position to do
them any great good.
One word as to the present attitude of
Tennessee. No sensible man can recon
cile the acts of the Tennessee Greeley De
mocracy with its 2)rofcssions. With one
hand it tenders the olive branch to Horace
Greeley and his liberal allies, professing a
sincere desire for reconciliation and a more
fraternal union with the Northern people,
while with the other it aggressively and in
sultingly repels from its ranks every man
who was in sympathy with the Govern
ment during the war. While loudlv com
plaining of oppression from the North,
it 'Is. "to-day proscribing every man
In- the i State -who was loyal to his
country in the time of its peril. While
obsequious and zealous to an unmanly de
gree to swallow Horace Greeley with all
his obnoxious record for the professed ob
ject of cementing the Union, it puts for
ward as its candidates for every prominent
office in the State, ex-confederate officers
who did all they could to disrupt that
Union puts them forward became of their
rebel record, aye, chooses them in prefer
ence to better men of their own party
whom they reject because they were
Union men. Look over the list
riidatps from Governor down to K?
those for the Legislature-and what a long
array of Generals, Colonels, -Majors, Cap
tains, &c. , do we find ? Is such proscrip
tion in Tennessee on the part or tne con
federate wing of the Democracy consistent
with their professions to the North for "re
conciliation ?" It seems to me the Democ
racy of Tennessee should see this false
Eosition in which their over-zealous leaders
ave placed them and the ruinous .effect
with which such facts can be used against
Is it not time intelligent people cut
themselves loose from such leaders?
Is it not time; that they ,r were
were votincr to promote their interests, ag
ricultural, industrial, and educational,
rather than giving.their influence to a few
hot headed partisan leaders to be used to
the detriment of their State and section?
For these reasons alone, losing sight entire
ly of many others they have often had pre
sented to them, I think the people of Ten
nessee should cast their electoral vote tor
Grant and Wilson, and wheel into the line
of States that are to shape and mould the
policy -ef the Republic for the next four

To Hon. Geo. W.Emery, Chairman
Rep. Com., Nashville, Tenn.
Kino Isiiam G. Harris is coming to
East Tennessee to rally the "organization"
to the "regular nominee." The drill ser
geants are at work in Middle and West
Tennessee and have whipped the old guard
into line, but here in EastiTennessee the
Union Democracy do not seem to bow the
knee. Will Harris and House and Burch
and the unterrified unbought local leaders
of East Tennessee be able to rally the vo
While this bitter factious quarrel goes
on the friends of Maynard are quiet ob
servers hugely enjoying the confusion
curses and threats that are heard on every
side. It is not our funeral. Horace May
nard has been relentlesslyjpursued by the
Tennessee Democracy. , He has been bit
terly assailed without cause. He was ger
rymandered out of his seat in Congress
W n most shameful disre2ard of
the interests and - wishes of the
people of East Tennessee, and now that a
splendid opportunity is afforded them, the
respectable people of his old district will
rebuke the Legislature and party that were
guilty of this proscription. The Andy
Johnson men are boasting that they win
cetlRerublican! votes dissatisfied with
Maynard. We think they will find out
their mistake on election day. YY e do not
believe Republicans will throw away their
votes onJohnson or lose an opportunity of
showinc tbeir contempt for partisans
afraid to meet one of their leaders in fair
contest. Not a man opposed to the out
rageous gerrymandering of the "Battering
Ram District" will fail to vote for May
nard and Thornburgh.
Now that the Pennsylvania, Ohio and
Indiana electious have made certain the
re-election of Gen. Grant, the Prcs3 ar4
Herald is gradually trying to make itself a
"radical" paper. It pretends that the
Cheatham men are driving the Johnson
men away from Democracy by their pro
scription, but the real secret of its weak
ness as a Democratic organ is, that it wants
to get over to the strong side. Its issue of
yesterday reads very much like a "radi
cal" sheet. The way it talks about Isham
G. Harris, Gen. Forrest, Dunington, . the
Memphis Apxcal, &c, is frrightful. It is
evidently getting desperate. T Now, ordi
narialy we like to have converts come
over, but in this case we protest. Men who
come over from principle we can welcome
cordially, but these vultures who come for
spoils we detest. The fact is, we don't need
votes bad enough to take any of that kind.
We are willing the "big organ" shall make
all it can out of Andy ;in hisdesperation,
but we hope it will save the "Radical par
ty" from the mortification of any such re
The election of LThornburgh would do
more to insure betterj legislation in Ten
nesse in the future than any one vote the
people could cast. We have never heard
an honest;democrat defend the Legislature
for mapping out this District 250 miles
long, st retching from North Carolina to
Kentucky. The.East Tennessee counties
of the district are mining andmanufactur
ing counties. They are attached to Middle
Tennessee, that has no such interests to
encourage. Their votes will, therefore, be
directly opposed to ours. Now, let all men
who oppose bitter partisan, spiteful legisla
tion vote for Thornburgh, and thereby
give a stinging rebuke to the nanow-
mindedjsouls, who enacted that law. If
they, do we will have no more such
gerrymandering in Tennessee.
