product of sixteen year? of asceudency of the Ke

reformers are voted down iu convention and dis
placed from the Cabinet. The party's mans of hon

THE JUDICIAL ELECTION.
The contest for Judge in this Cir

James G. Rose bya very respectable
majority. That the people have
chosen a good, honest, upright, ca
pable man, none, even his bitterest
opponents, can den'. Judge Rose
is a lawyer of high attainments.
Though comparatively a young man,
he already stands in the front rank
of the profession, and the reputa
which he has won at the bar he will
maintain upon the bench. Possess

accurate reasoning, clear perception
and close study, lie will make a

Two of Judge Rose's competitors
are citizens of tlm county, well
known among our people. Against
either of these gentlemen or their
friends we had no unking word to
utter during the canvass, and we cer
tainly have none now. Mr. Rogan
h a lawyer of no mean abilities, and
had he been elected would have
made a good Judge. He is a high
toned, honorable gentleman, admired
ami respected by ail who know him.
Of the earnest, zealous support he
received from his friends throughout
the Circuit he may well be proud;
and it can but but be to him a grati

Our readers are familiar with the
efforts of Hon. William McFarland
to relieve those of our people who
have been so unmercifully and un
justly persecuted and prosecuted for
technical, and in many cases imagin
ary, violations of the Revenue laws.
These prosecutions were gotten up,
not to vindicate the majesty of the
law, but for the pitiful purpose of
putting fat fee3in the pocket3 of the
officials. These violations were tech
nical, and in most caes committed
through utter ignorance on the part
of the persons so persecuted. The
whole country was searched and ran
sacked for these alleged violators of
the law, and when found, were
marched off to the Federal Court at
Knoxville and the parties subjected
to heavy expense in procuring law
yers to defend them, and this incon
venience of having to give bond or
go to jail, and then be fined and im
prisoned for absolutely no real of
fense. Judge McFarland seeing
these outrages, committed upon our
people, appealed to the President
and Secretary of the Treasury for
relief for our people. In this appeal
Senator Key and Representative
Dibbrcll joined, but Mr. Thoruburg
who represents the Knoxville dis
trict opposed them. Judge McFar

OUR KNOXVILLE LETTER.
Knoxville, August 4th, 1876.
To the Editor of tiie Morrietowa Gazette :
Our election passed off rather quietly
yesterday, resulting in the election of
Reeder, (Republican) Sheriff, and W. A.
Anderson, (Democrat), -Trustee. The
Rads are crowing considerably, this
morning, over their great (?) victory.
Can't see it in that light. If there is any
victory to be claimed we are certainly
entitled to at least half at the victory, as
We elected our Democratic Trustee by a
much larger majority, than they did
their Republican Sheriff. The Rads say
Anderson's majority was owing to hfs
universal popularity receiving many
Republican votes. He, no doubt, did
receive some Republican votes on that
account, for no Tionezt man could com
plain of his past official record.
Taking all things together,, good and
bad, there is nothing to discourage us
in the forthcoming Presidential contest.
The Democrats will go to .work now
with a "vim," and, mark the prediction,
Knox county will roll up a majority,
not to be ashamed of, for Tilden and
Hendricks. Respectfully, Mot.
