The delegates from the several
counties at the State Convention
thought it proper to suggest the ap
pointment of county electors, and
the name of Col. O. C. King was re
commended for Hamblen county.
Mr. King is an able lawyer, a fine
orator, and a Democrat who has yet
to shirk work upon the stump when
the interests of his party demands
it. The following names were sug
gested for the other counties f the
district: Cocke, W. J. McSween ;

The selection by the State Con
vention of Col. Charles R. Vance, of
Sullivan county.as Presidential Elec
tor for the First Congressional Dis
trict, Is a choice that will give gen
eral satisfaction to the Democratic
voters of the District. He is well
known to the people, i3 in the vigor
of manhood, and is a gentleman of
fine ability, unquestioned morals and
integrity. In honoring him the Con.
vention honored the people of the
district and the Democracy of the
State. We congratulate our friends
that Col. Vance heads the list, be
lieving that he has the ability to bear
with credit the banner of his party
through the canvass, no matter who
hi9 competitor may be nor how heat
ed the contest.
Gen. James A. Garfield, of Men
tor, was born in Orange, Cuyahoga
county, Ohio, November 19, 1831;
graduated at William College, Mas
sachuetts, in 1856; was President of
a literary institution fr several
years; studied and practiced law ;
was a member of the State Senate
of Ohio in 1859-60; entered the
Union Army in 1861 as Colonel of
the Forty-second Ohio Volunteers;
was promoted to the rank of Briga
dier General January 19, 1862; was
appointed Chief of Staff of the Army
of the Cumberland, and was promot
ed to the rank of Major General
September 20th, 1863; was elected
to the Thirty.eighth, Thirty-ninth,
Fortieth, Forty first, Forty-second,
Forty-third and Forty-fourth Con

Forty-fifth Congress as a Republi-

There is, in the action of the .Re
publican party by their convention
at Chicago, much food for reflection.
much upon which the country may
congratulate itself. There is in it a
strange result. If we look critical
ly to the history of parties in this
country, during recent years, we find
between them not more than two
well defined issues. One of those
may be defined thus : The Republi
can party has seemed determined to
brce upon the country a strong gov
ernment determined to practically,
if not actually, obliterate State
ines to make the military an effi
cient integral part of civil govern
ment. : This idea had its impersona
tion in Grantism Grantism rather
than third termism. Gen. Grant was
the favorite of a very large wing of
the Republican party not because of
his statesmanship, for he is no states
man not because of his availabilty
and popularity, because his availa
bility for a third term has never been
less Lhau doubtful -but because of
his arbitrary disposition and the ca
pacity he ha9 shown to utterly dis
regard all restr&int and limitation
To this feature of Republicanism
the Democratic Dartv has stood
V - k w
through all the years diametrically
oDDOsed. This ha9 been one issue
The other is of kin to this one
The Republican party has shown
dogged determination to place the
elections of the country under Fed
eral suoervision. Out of this deter
mination on the part of that party
and the opposition to it on the part
of the Democracy, has grown the
long bitter contest between the ma
jority in Congress, on the one band,
and the stalwart minority and Mr.
Haves on the other band. It was an
effort to keep party ascendency by
the use of party machinery wrought
by executive power, on the one hand
an effort to enable the people to ex-
ill at. the hallot box

without restraint on the other.
At Chicago, after the fiercest
strule ever waged iu the Republi-
can party, Grantism has sunk into a
in lei. na hone eternal niarht. It
o - tr
went down showing in the very "ago-
nies of. its . death the same dogged
persistence and insolent self will
which has alw&ys phjjracterized it,
and which is a distinguishing char-
acteristic of tyrants everywhere,
But shall there be hereafter Federal
supervision of elections in a way to
enable the executive to control
them? This i9 the only remaining
issue. In regard to Ibis the action
at Chicago is most significant. Upon
this issue party lines have been very
sharply drawn. Democrats in Con-
gress all, without exception, said no!
by their votes. Republicans in Con-
gress, with a single remarkable epcep-
tion have said yes! by their votes,
That single remarkable exception is
Gen- James A. Garfield, the nomi-
nee of the Chicago convention ! It
was bis band that wrote the vetoed
bill, which if enacted into a law
would render Federal supervision

Thus one issue has been crushed
out by the action of the majority ot
the covention in '"defeating Grant,
And the other has been distinctly

ating Gen. Garfield. Upon what,
therefore, is the campaign to be

Ma rpnffttlftn fta ftn nr.fttor. Th
Since1 it has teen understood that 1
the Hon.R. R.Butler has withdrawn
from the canvass for the Republican
nomination for Congress in the First
District, public opinion seems ; to
have settled down upon the idea that
Maj. Pettibone will receive the nom
ination beyond the possibility of a
doubt. Judge Randolph it is true
has been busy canvassing the dis
trict and has perhaps visited every
county in it, but he has so far as is
known met with very little encour
agement. The truth is the leaders
of the Republican party are not for
Randolph and he knows it. His
strength is with the masses of the
people, the yeomanry of the country.
and this class the Judge cannot
reach in a preliminary caovasa for
the nomination. The Judge failed
in the outset to organise the proper
kind of a machine;' he failed to
employ active agents in the differ
ent counties and in all the civil dis
tricts. whose business it was to work
up a Randolph boom and to get an
expression ot the opiniou of the
common people as to their prefer
ence between himself and Maj. Pet
tibone ; and the consequence is just
upon the eve of holding the noini
naling convention the Judge finds
himself without any powerful organ
ization in his favor. Maj. Petti
bone's friends and supporters are
thoroughly organized throughou
the district ready at any time to
move forward in a compact body
and to confer the nomination upon
him without a struggle.
Judge Randolph has some ele
ments ot strength not possessed
by any other gentleman of hi9 party
in this district. Once fairly before
the people he would be hard to de
feat. But of late the "machine'
manages all the preliminaries; the
delegates to nominating conventions
are invariably named by the town
cliques and district bosses. The
Judge has little or no strength with
these gentlemen and consequently
his chances of receiving the nomina
tion are exceedingly slim, if indeed
he has any chance at all. As an
old-fashioned East Tennessee pol
tician he would be a formidable man
in the Greeneville conyention, be
cause in those old days the dele
gates were in the habit of enquiiing
around amog the voters, finding
out their preferences and then when
the convention met making an hon
est effort to confer the nomination
upon that candicjalp whp was found
to be the choice of the greatest nura
ber of the common people. Modern
"ring masters" have changed thi
plan of proceeding in both politica
parties money is not unfrequently
used to procure the attendanee of
delegates and so it happens that
nominating conventions are now,
four times out of five, packed bodies
of partial partisans gathered up for
the express purpose of putting for-
ward the favorite of the ring9,
whether that favorite is the choice
of the people or not.
It is barely possible that the
Judge has in the last few weeks sue
'ceeded in organizing a Randolph
party in the upper counties. If he
has done so he will go into the con
vention with some strength after all.
He will get some votes from Clai
borne county, some from Grainger
and will in all probability carry his
own county solid. But from pres
ent appearances we are inclined to
think Maj, Pettibone has a dead
sure thing of the Greeneville nomi-
nation. Randolph has kept his Mex-
ican dollars too closely confined in
his eel-skin pouch. If he wanted
the nomination bad he ought to have

some cream tartar, but after looking
over the house for it thty found, what
they supposed was the article needed,
but which was arsenic, and used it with
the other ingredients, and after baking,
they all, (six in .number) ate of it,
whicn produced almost instant death.
They were all buried on the following

To Uie Editor of the Morristown Gaiette :
The examination of cluwt at the Morrtetown
Female High School wu begun on Wednmdey
morning, Jnne 9. We did not have the pleasure of
hearing any of the examinations until Wednesday
afternoon; but Judging from what we heard, they
mast hare been good.
Classes were examined in Grammar, Arithmetic,
Algebra, Philosophy, Familiar Science, Astronomy,
ie. The examinations were very thorough, and
the young ladies answered with a promptness and
firmness which showed that they fully understood
their books which they bad gone over . We were
specially interested in the contest for the prise of
fered by the assistant teacher. Miss Cornelia Car
riger, to the most successful one in a small spU
and very clearly evinced the fact that they had aU
been working for that prize; but Miss Lillie Boss
was the successful one . She certainly did exceed
ingly well. The prize was presented to her, with
the usual compliments, by O . McHenderson.
the Methodist church was full to overflowing.
This was the place where the exercises were to be
conducted. The first thing on the programme wss
devotional exercises afterwards, quite a number
of recitations by the little girls, intersperced with
most excellent n. nsic. The little girls did well, so
reciting their pieces as to show great care on the
part of their teacher in drilling them. Half-dozen
or more essay were read by some of the larger
girls, which were very good.
the examination was resumed. We have heard a
great many examinations, both In academies and
colleges, but we do not think that we ever heard
one that equaled this one, taking it all in all. It
was perfectly delightful to see the young ladies
and little girls answer with such promptness.
There was but very few questions missed during
the whole of the examination . This is the place to
test a school, and thi is the place to find out the
worth of a teacher.
very large audience assembled in the M. E.
Church to witness the last of the exercises.
The yonng ladies read their essavs, which w
thought were exceedingly good. Among the best
were Miss Jennie Rose, Miss Lillie D . Richardson,
Miss Gammon, Miss Florence Mnrphey, Miss
Hughes, Mis Margraves, and Miss Hicks. Then
came the annual address by Rev. B. G. Mauard.
Mr. Manard' subject was "Our Country, its Re
sources, and it Future." He treated bis subject
with singular ability, confining himself pridcipal
lj to our own East Tennessee, at times rising to
ucb a point of eloquence and enthusiasm as to
suggest to.a spell-bound listener the sweet-tuned
orator of which Homer, the Grecian poet, sung.
He referred with a marked degree of pride to the
great men who have gone out from our own be
loved section, to the vast resources of our country,
to the flattering prospects for the future, and
when he had finished his able address, he took hi
seat 'mid rounds Of long continued applause.
The whole of the exercises has been a grand suc
cess. .The school is certainly accomplishing
pinch,. WU? not the people of East Tennessee
more than double the attendance next year by
ending their daughters to te Morrltown Female
Mr. Summers, the principal of this school, is
well known throughout all thi section of country.
His assistant, Miss Cornelia Carriger, is a bright
young lady, well educated, highly refined, and in
very way wU vualined. and suitable for the posi
tiofl wkjck fib now holds. May such success as
they have had this year ever crown their labors.
Very respectfully, Tut Tit.

Bean's Station, Tenn , June lf0,
To the Editor of the MorrtV,va Gette ;
At the tge&t request of my many friends, I wil
announce through your paper my safe arrival to
this beautiful, and picturesque valley, widely
kmown a Bean Station. Being so very , feeble
when I left home, my relatives aad fiends feared
the trip would be o,a ftigulng, but throuKh the
Uan attention of our noble-hearted conductor,
Capt. Taylor, and the very cordial reception re
ceived at the cozy little home of my god friend
and relative, Jimmie Rice, I ws euuLkd next
morning to redouble my eieriea, aud, with n;y
iri )uojt,u y.n cy me wmsperings or that soul
cheering liitle bird, Hope, to go on my way re
joicing. Early next morning, (Saturday, 6th,)
Hon. Wm. McFarland (the preMeut proprietor of
the Bean Station property,) learned we wr in
town and called around to ana through his
kind, iae',.-',c,Kli I, iu company with my daughter,
was soon pleasantly seated in Mr. Frank Cain's
hack. We found Mr. Cain very accommodating,
jovial and pleasant the hack in fine running or
der, and "uncle Sam," the model driver, iu a good
frame of mind to do his best work, thus rendering
the ride as pleasant and comfortable a could lie
to an invalid. Nothing transpire o mar our hap
piness in the IcmI, tve a little argument on the
subject of marriage between, federal soldiers and
Southern girls, etc., etc.; some for and otherj
against it the majority opposed . Cu arriving at
the StaUon we fond this beautiful, ye lovely
Placo, ail nicely fitted up, and everything in readi
ness to receive us . We were ushered into a spa
cious parlor, clean, cool and well ventilated, and
after resting a coupl of hours and enjoying a
good social chat with our estimable relative, (the
landlady,) dinner was announced, which call was
responded to without any relifntajice on, our purt.
We found the ta,ljle. yell furnished with everything
the toijntry affords, and, prepared in a style to sat
isfy the tante of the. most fastidious. I hare thor
oughly examined this large, commodious and well
arranged building from cellar to garret, and i-au
safely say that it is the c!ea.npst public building in
the Stt,, .. at least it is by far the pure I air I
ever breathed In one. I would attempt a duM-rip-tion
of the various departments of this large ro
mantic building, and the different methods that
have been adapted to reuder the air pure and
healthy, but fear I would U the patienee of the
edjitor. The lnny varieties of water are fine, es
pecially the black water. It is about a quarter of
a mile to the springs, but we are well supplied with
fresh water suited to the wants of different ones,
and when we choose ran ride out and use it fresh
from tte spring. We ,re. perfectly delighted with
the surroundings, and happily situaUd in every
respect, and hope to be greatly benefitted by the
ose of the water. M. 8. Mc.
