my name before the public. When
our Stale Convention assembled, to
appoint delegates to Baltimore and
nominate a candidate lor Governor,
a bill was pending in Congress,
which, if it became a law, would
give to Tennessee a Congressman,
to be elected by the State at large.
: I was not present at that convert
I tion. Some persons thought, while
' the conventicn was assembled it
! would be better to nominate for our
: party than to go to t he trouble of
calling another convention. S- me
j too partial friend put my name
forward. A friend of Andrew
1 Johnson, (but without mentioning
his name,) opposed a nomination
at th;it time as premature. There
upon tbe convention passed a resol
ution providing that, in the event
I tho bill pass d Congref a, the I'cm

o-ed of gentlemen from each grand
' division of the State, should

I Col. John C. Hiir-ii was made

The bill spoken of did pass Con

friends, I become a candidate. A
number of gentlemen, better qoal-ifi-
1 than myeelf, were ca'ied on
in different poi tions of the State,

so much interested as the much

Johnson theory, have been made
