A POTBOH GONE UP.
In the face of the dispatches received
yesterday, and the corroborative intelli
gence published this morning, the news
is indeed startling. It would seem that
the accounts of French successes aud
beinir driven into the
Meuse were the reverse of the truth.
McMuhon, having been wounded, did
not command, and the French forces
were directed by Wimpfen, the successor
of Failly. The diBpatch of KingW llliam
leaves no uoubt of the extent of the dis
aster, and it luay be received as almost
flnainp apt of the drama. It cer
tainly shuts off the Napoleon dynasty.
Those who express surprise at and un
belief of the Emperor capture should
remember that lie was ill at Sedan, and
unable to get away. Besides, " whither
should he go ? ' Though the way to Paris
was open, that was no healthy place for
him unless he could return in triumph,
lie would here been regarded as the
cause of all their troubles and misfor
tunes, and Parisian populace have
betn known to have little respect for
powerless crowned heads. We take it,
therefore, that Napoleon preferred to
trust to King William, rather than haz
ard his very life with the Parisians.
With the destruction of JIcMahon's
army there is nothing to intervene be
the victor and the capital. In a
dav or two at farthest the smoke willjhim yet. His thick, white mustache
have cleared off, and there may be room
at least allowed for conjecture as to the
future. Until then all is doubt and
SLANDER ON THE SOUTH.
We find the following paragraph in
the last issue of the Louisville Commer
cial: The World and the Louisville Courier
Journal are dtvoting the principal pnrt
of their time to the earnest appeals that
their Southern brethren will conceal
their rebel impulses. The spirit of
treason must be very rampant when such
persistent efforts are required to lay it,
und especially when even they fail to
accomplish that result.
We have not been so close an observer
of either paper as to have perceived any
such earnestness to procure or produce
a cessation of what has no existence.
There are no "rebel impulses" among
their " Southern brethren," and any such
" earnest , appeals " would be merely
supererogatory. In the latter named
paper there have been some slight and
indifferent controversies, springing up
with a Southern journal or two, but the
main-spring was the arrogance of the
double-headed paper, which has endeav
ored to convert into followers of its pecu
liar tactics, those who have tuctics of
their own uud principles which they are
unwilling to relinquish to adopt any
such bliding scale as a sail-trimming
arunl cuurrier might providevThere is
no such "spirit of treason" in existence
as the Commercial, true to its Radical
instincts, intimates. . The Southern peo
ple are as patriotically true to the Gov
ernment, under the Constitution, as ever
men were, and a thousand times more
so than the most boastful Radical in the
land. They are not willing, however, to
ignore the truth, or remain passive
instruments in the hands of Radicals,
when they can exercise the rights of
man, and defend their common interests
nt the ballot box. They are compelled
to accept the present situation ; but that
does not argue that they should be con
tent to linger out a wasted life, with
prostrated energies and a mean acqui
escence when power, which has been
usurped and exercised by the few, shall
again be restored to by the many. The
no-called amendments to the Federal
Constitution will be submitted to until
Radicalism shall be swept from power,
and the people not only assume the
reins of esvernment, but, from their
patriotic hearts, shall proclaim their fun
damental rule to be in accordance with
that of their fathers, which secured to
State and Federal governments their

EODEEICK EAND0M BUTLER.
Although Jii'lge Trigg dismissed the
uit against this miserable political mer-
ran.rv and thief, it was for want of
jurisdiction, and the guilt or innocence
uf the accused did not enter iuto the
consideration of the case, which will I

Our venerable friend of the West Ten
nessee Whig, whose eccentric course,
seemed to doom Democracy, and sur
prised us not a little, has to some ex
tent fairly caved in. He says, now :
If there was an effort being made at
this time, anywhere in the fitnto, to re
vive the old Whig party, 1 would oppose
the movement, lint there is no such
ell'ort; no such wish by ajiy ex-Whig in
the State and none know it better than
those who make the charge, that such an
object is in view.
The lapse of a few weeks, and the har
mony that would not be disturbed, have
wrought a wonderful change in those
ho started out to have their way, at
though it might endanger the success of
the opposition to Radicalism. w e are
glnd of this, and hope that at no time in
the future those whose efforts aro to be
shoulder to shoulder against a
common enemy, shall be estranged.
With the restoration of good govern
ment, all the arts of peace may be cut
tivated, for industry and integrity and
intelligence will then be sure of their re-
comnense. The bonds of amity will be
strengthened, for honesty and not chi
canery will prevail, and the general weal
be protected at the expense of selfishness
that has run riot through the land under
the protection of ill-gained and worse
exercised power. In the same address
which Mr. Gates delivered at Hunting
don, he said:
With regard to past political parties,
linv no criminations to make; such
would only tend to increase our embar-
rnuompnt. and distress. No, no, let
by-gones be by-goncs." Why .should
there be any more strife between n ?
Are we not brethren ? Let us, there
fore, cultivato kind feelings toward each
other" mine shall be the plans of fair,
delightful peace, to dwell like brothers.
This is much better than to seek to
promote schism, and unsettle the public
mind, either to gratify personal vanity,
or revive a defunct party whose patriot
ism was once unquestionable, but which,
yielding to the blandishments of a most
promising faction, fell a victim to its
enormous appetite and all to destroy
the Democratic party, which, however,
still survives, sustained by the fragments
of the Constitution.
KINO WILLIAM OF PRUSSIA.
Mr. Halstead. of the Cincinnati Com
mercial, who is where he can hear the
clash of arms and behold the carnage
and devastation of war, is writing a
series of interesting letters to his paper.
He thus describes the Prussian monarch,
who is accompanying his army. Writing
from St. Alvord, August 13th, he says:
What advantneewe will gain by push
ing on is not clear, but we saw the King
evening, ana naa a pome recogni-
tion from him. His apartments are in
the second story of th t'ostothee build-
ng; and passing through the square
this evening, the old gentleman was at
the window, and returned onr salute
ith a look of curiosity. He did not
understand, I imagine, what manner of
non-combatants those were staring at
His Majesty. His appearance is that of
a vcrv vigorous man: and, aside from
the casualties of war, the chances are
that he has a eood many years before
runs into side whiskers, white and heavy,
but neatly trimmed. He seemed quite
at his ease, and remained at the window
for some time, longer indeed than it was
polite, or perhaps prudent, for strangers
to loiter in that vicinity.

many other counties, where he would
have had a large vote.
Under the rules of the United States
Treasury, all mutilated bank notes are
redeemed according to the degree of mu
tilation. A note with a certain portion
of its superficial surface torn off is never
redeemed at its full value, but in propor
tion to the quantity of superficial mrtace
presented for redemption. Since green
backs were introduced, the redemption
division of the Treasury has been con
stantly engaged in redeeming this mutil
ated currency, and an account of the
discount has been kept, which shows an
aggregate, up to the present date, of
$ 1 rG,l'j:t. AujiA ri'e Han net.
And of every cent of that the people
have been defrauded in addition to the
vast sums that have been entirely de
stroyed, or that have never been pre
sented for redemption. The rule was
arbitrary; in fact, despotic, and was
based upon the old song:
We will get who have the power
And we will keep who can."

one of the fine emanations of the mind of
the then Secretary of the Treasury, whose
vignette was impressed on the dollar
notes, and he was thus careful lest his
imposing physiognomy should be marred,
and imposed the penalty of a tax upon
mutilated notes, to cover the case, which
had neither justice in it nor precedent.
It was a small way of Radical shaving,

Governor Geary, of Pennsylvania,
having a moment of leisure, and wishi
to propitiate Radicalism, has recen
issued a proclamation exacting tl
strict enforcement of the Fifteon
Amendment in Pennsylvania. In the
language of the Missouri Republican
his proclamation "brings vividly l(
view one unpleasant fact, viss: that thi
enforcement bill conflicts with the clec
tion laws of nearly every State in the
North; so that tho execution of it wil
necessarily involve a violation of thes
laws bv the verv officials sworn to exe
cute them. Of course it will be held
that the lower laws of the State mui
yield to tho hiirher law of the Unite
Suites; but for nil this there will remain
a sense of humiliation on tho pnrt of the
state. The people will bo reminde
that the Federal Government has tako
from them one right which they pos
sessed before: that it has forced them to
do a tliinn they would not do voluntari
ly; and that it has compelled them to
set aside laws of their own enactment,
which still remain on their own statute
books, muto mementoes of a humilia
tion. There has been no disregard
of the Fifteenth Amendment in a
Southern State; it is somewhat insig
nificant that it should be disregarded,
in a Northern State ; for not a few Rad
icals in the North, who thoutht that
duty to their party required them to join
n the hurrah over the adoption of the
Fifteenth Amendment, are sick of it
already j they are not as much in favor
of the enforcement of the Amendment
as they were in favor of its adoption ;
and when they see their own State laws
rudely set aside by its operation, their
admiration for it will certainly not be in
creased." IUttikr Greedt. It seems as though
our good friends in Memphis would like

'Not if the court knows herself and

Bkki.ix, September 3. A sanguinary
battle was fought on Friday along the
line from Morey to Donscy, com
mencing at five o'clock in the morning.
McMahon resisted the Prussian attack
until three o'clock in the afternoon.
The firing was incessant and furious
along the entire line of both armies, and
continued with fearful destructiveness
and slaughter. The fire slackened and
ceased at half-past three o'clock p.m.
At that moment a solid column of the
Prussians, bayonet in hand, advanced to
4he assault. The crisis was now to be
decided by the bayonet. QuicKly did
the Prussians move, and with over-
helming impetus they precipitated
themselves on McMahon's lines at all
points. The French unavailingly strag
gled, but were defeated, routed and
driven in an utter disorderly mass across
the Meuse. The Prussians were victo
rious and held the entire field lately
occupied by the French. The slaughter
was fearful, from the awful fire which
had been incessantly maintained for ten
hours. The rout of the French was

I have this day (as per reference to the
above card) connected myself with James A.
Swain in the General Agency of the Equitable
Life Assurance Society of tbe I nited States
for tho States of Tennessee. Arkansas and
Northern Mississippi, and in such capacity
present myself to the public. The business
thatil have just entered upon is eminently
worthy uf the most serious attention and
thought, and commends itself to the calm re
flection of nil, and the company that I have
the honor hi part to ropresent, is not excejled
by any other similar corporation in the United
Stntes in point of solvency, merit, worth and
extent of business. Emboldened by these
considerations, 1 confidently appeal to my
friends and a generous publie for a fair tdiare
of their patronage. T. N. JOHNSTON.

WE n AVE ALREADY RECEIVED A GREAT MANY ORDERS FOR THESE GINS FOR

consult their own interests by bunding in their urders now, and thereby prevent disap
