Knows not the Assassin.
Eirlv Sundav mornins, Sept. 1, a boy in
house No. 34 Commerce.street, entered the
room of a man named Frank Fitzgerald to
summon him to breakfast. Knocking at
the door and rr caiving no response the boy
opened, and as he looked into tne room,
A FRIGHTFUL B1UUT
met his now startled gaze. There on the
blood-stained bed was Fitzgerald, lying in
sensible and horribly wounded. X lie alarm
was given and medical aid summoned
in t.!m bed was a nool of blood, and Irom a
wound iu the head the life blood was still
oozing, the sheets being malted witli it and
the hair of the unfortunate man actually
made red. An examination showed that
was made by a pistol shot which, striking
about two inches from the outward angle
of the oyo-brow, circled around the base of
the skull taking off the eyfi-Jid like it had
been done bv a surcical instrument. Vhen
stillhanging by tho outer canthus, was cut
off. Another slight wound was an incision
in the forehead.
Fitzserald died the Monday following
declared he knew nothing of the occurrence
and was uuable to account for . it. It is
not known whether the fatal wounds were
or bv his own hands. Fitz
gerald " had been drinking the
day previous and about six o'clock that
evening had a difficulty with an unknown
man who shaking his fist was heard to cay
to the deceased, "I will kill you before
morning." To this Fitzgerald replied,
"Well I am ready." In the locked closet of
his room Fitzgerald's own pistol was found
besmeared with blood which induce many
to believe that be committed suicide while
crazed with whfc&y. He was about thirty
years of age and wa3 a uiarricd man, his
wife being iu Virginia at the Urna. Many
gathered around his death bed and every
means used to render his few earthly hours
as easy and painless as was posslbl. To
all questions he replied in monosyllables
declaring he knew nothing of tho fearful
deed which is wrapped in mystery that
may never be solved.

Not by this caption do we mean a pick-
picket, a loafing thief nor one who robs the
unsuspecting. Few would imagine its
.meaning, and not a few are averse to apply
Its propriety to tnemselves as subjects. We
mean those gentlemen who are In the habit
of hugging lamp-nosts, staring at strangers
and accompanying ladies when shop
ping. Did it ever occur to these gentlemen
that the presence of their sex is exceeding
ly annoying to a lady when she is making
a purchaser mere are numerous articles
never intended in their original raw staW
as dry goods to meet tha eye of
any male except tne cierK wnose oros
of perception ny a necessary privilege is
allowed this. Often young ladies because
of gentlemen being present are compelled
to leave a store without buying anthlng.
A store is no place to court in. If it is,
then the clerk only has the right and for a
gentleman who meeting a lady on too
street accompanies her there to talk love,
to engage in a flirtation, is an infringement
of that prerogative which a merciful cupid
has granted as one of the many pleasures
and assigned a delightful duty to the clerk.
Only a few days ago we heard a lady say to
her female friend. "Isn't he annoying? Ho
almost worries my very life out. I went
to purchase , (a delicate article,) from
Mrs. , the milliner, but that dreaduil
man was there; what could
I do etc?" Young men,
take warning t by this. You may be
convenient as a .practical valet to carry her
parasol, provided it is not sunshiny weath
er, or desirable as a pleasant coinpinion
(mo lem.. we mean when the young lady
has made her purchases and returning home
is in a five minutes' walk of her residence.
Under these circumstances you may carry
her fan if ic Isn't warm weather.or some trin
ket or toy doll which is destined for a
little sister, liut n tnpre are two young

hence It Is necessary to uon an appropri
ate dress, and as every young lady nowa
days is expected to have so many dresses
that the proper selection being often at
tended with difficulty, it is necessary or as
pleasant to consult tho taste oi anotner.
If sha expected to go commence a series
of vehicuiary engagements or auoiupausu
much carriage driving, naturally she would
have to visit the milliner's seven times and
have as many conversations with her (more
probably with "papa" who holds the reins
of Mm money nurse) as to whether she
would have a skirt of striped and plum
colored silk with eathcrcd bottom, sur
mounted, bv a wide straight lengthwise
hand of narrowly pleated nulling. This
rpnnires time, and her spare moments are
spent in consulting with her friend par ex-
epllencjp. in taste as to me pruuneiy ui a
bask waist and redingote white or buff
rashmpxe sleeves trimmed with dark ereen
or black, and passenmcnlcrie; and especial
ly about tne wuite straw Bonnet
with aigreua anu seareu auiumu ieae3
with enough brilliancy of departed 3ummer
left to make a contrast. Young man when
you carry her purple-edged parasol, thereby
ant. tov. do vou once minis your prusuuuo
may cause her to forget any of the above
detailed indispenfables? Well, you may,
who knows? Suppo3oshe is thinking about
anew party dress, you can t amuse ner,
and everv word vou utter is a stupendous
nonentity of attractive significance. She
mav, it is true, decide to have, as a matter
nf course, a train dress of white silk, pos-
sresin? the natural double ruffies
nf silk eauzj beneath garlands of
crimson roses and heavy spangled
foliitzc. Then, however, it taes
much time to decide that the tunic must be
draped and upon the full buffiiant vest largo
inntis of tho rose silk ceinture. It might
hp nn trouble to adopt tlus dress, but then
there is another equally a3 becoming; for
instance, a straw, colored white silk and
colorless grenadine, with a deep flounce of
this material located.well, somewhere above
the edge of the long train skirt. She is
thinking about these dresses, and when she
goes shopping your "critical eye aud prac
tical taste" she ma? c?.ll you all this does
not assist her preference or improve her
perturbed feelings. True, that milliner
would say this flounce is to be divided near
the top and gathered under a band
like the dress, thence extending through a
miffing of erenadine upon which at cquidis
tant points loop3 and Jloating curls like a
schooner's streamers or those of fair Belliu
da's locks. Were this all, she might have
time to enjoy your talk in her walk. But
then it takes some lime to discover that the
ribbon loops drape it in the lateral localities
ami falls onen iu broad folds at the rear
which is open. Much cogitation with self,
consultation with friends and information
aliunde arc necessary prccondiiions to the
belief that there must be a low sleeveless
corset of silk with small square
basque; JLIiet .this must be
trimmed with creuad'me (your presence
may make it green-eyed,) ruffies, and, (is
names are to be given cf the "'stylish
present") with coose-quill puttings. This
isonlv a small part of annoyance iubabitin:

Opposition to tne nomination or a
Congressman lonue ouate as Xiarge.
Speeches by Judge Houk, Hon. Hor
ace MayHard una iiua. a. a. free
man. At. nhnut 11 o'clock yesterday morning
the delegates to the Republican State Con
vention began to make their appearance at
the capitol, and i was not long before the
Fifth Congressional District delegation had
all arrived. When their chairman said to
them, "Are you all here ( tney answered:
"Werare," when ho replied in a stentorian
tone of voice, "'Tis well," and they were
immediately marched into the committee
room where they were consulted as to what
they bad better uo aoout tne matters iu
hand, whereupon Enos Hopkins, of David
son, arose and said:
1 have no personal ieeungs as to tne re
sults of this convention, either one way or
the other, but I think it would not be
advisable for us to think of putting
any candidates in the field at present.
Andrew Jonnsqn anu uen. uneatnam
are the candidates for the office of Congress
man from the State at large, and since
both have declared for Greeley, nothing re
mains for us to do but to stand one side
and see them secure this State for Grant
and Wilson by a large majority. Now is
our time to split and scatter to tho winds
the Democratic party. The question in
this State is not, are you going to vote for
Grantor Greeley, but, are you going to 1
vote for Johnson or uneatnam we need
and must have the State Legislature in or
der to succeed; our necessities demand it.
If we have a nominee for Governor, we
might succeed in electing him, but to nomi
nate a Congressman in opposition to John
son or Cheatham will do us no good.
Mr. Peacock, of Sumner It is impossi
ble to unite the two candidates for Con
gress who are now in the field, for the ani
mosity mat now exists Detween mem wm
continue up to the time of the election, and
they may succeed in killing each otber,
which is just what wo all would like to see.
Mr. Woodcock, ot Wilson l care not
what arguments you may bring to bear,
gentlemen, I am in favor of making a nom
ination oi ine wuoie estate ucsei, wu
gressman at large included. Prolonged
cries of hear, hear, and clapping of hands
by the colored delegates.
It was then unanimously adopted by
them, that a full nomination be made by
the convention, and tnat uoi. uayiis, oi
Robertson, Col. Peacock, of Sumner, and
Mr. Prosser, of Davidson, be appointed to
confer with the several delegates in tha
other districts relative to the feeling that
existed among them. After a little small
talk in regard to the probable candidates,
the delegates issued forth from the com
mittee room, a knowing smile resting plac
idly on the faces of the darker portion.
The convention was then called to order,
not however until the colored band had"
given them a practical demonstration of the
fact that music nam a magic power, l nc s,
A. Kercheval, the chairman of the Repub
lican State Executive Committee, then satu
that the convention had met persuaut to a
call issued by the State Executive Com
mittee, and as tho chairmau ot said com
mittee he called them to order, and would
surest that tho Hon. Th03. LI. Caldwell,
of Bedford, be appointed temporary chair
man. After Mr. Caldwell took his seatthe
convention opened with prayer by the Rev.
Dr. Patlon. When he had finished, the
band played "Rally round the J? lag uoys."

G.W.Phillips, of Bsdford, moved tint

during the absence from the room of the

Ex-Gov. Sam Bard, chairman of the
Committee on Permanent Organization,
stated that the committee had recommended
Judge H. H. Harrison as President, and in

Judge Harrison then assunied the cbau:
and made a short speech in substance as
Gentlemen of the Convention: I am
deeply grateful to you for the honor you
have bestowed upon me, and trust I shall
be able to preside with deliberation over
the sentimcnt3 you have cinie here to dis

For the State at large, Thos. H.
well, of Shelby ville, Bedford county.
Gov. Bard made this report: The com
mittee appointed to ascertain whether the
convention should make a full nomination
voted twenty-one for full ticket 3nd six
Judge li. u. uouck oudrea in ueu a res
olution: Resolved: That in view of the
present situation of parties and politics in
T enneseee, this convention proceed to fill
up and complete the electoral ticket of the
Republican party of the State, and make
no other nominations, leaving the contest
for Governor and Congressman at large to
settled by the voica of the people at the ballot-box
Anira3cible intcrghange of fiery words
here ensued between Judge Houck and
Dr. Padgett, of Athens. Tho former
thought a full nomination would be th9
death blow of the Republican party. He
was not to be gagged, but wanted a full ex
pression of views. He was a Republican
yet and did not care to be kicked out in any
such manner. Dr. Padgett assured the
gentleman that he .did not intend to gag
any member or the views of any.
The Chairman ruled the question to bo
in order for discussion, whereupon Judge
Houck spoke as fo.lows:
I will now proceed i n a brief manner and
give you in a few minutes time the reasons
why I oppose any nomination. I assure
all sf you that I came here to do what I
believe to be my duty. To my friends, who
seem to be something in the majority, I
will say that there is no way to heal this
breach. I am satisfied that the great body of
the Republican party in .ast I ennessee are
of tho game opinion that J am. The gen
tleman reprcaentlng the first district has re
ported that the delegation from that portion
of the country are solid in favor of a nom
ination. Now, my friends, I am sure, Irom
what I know, that this is not true. Now,
is this fur? I can speak for that portion of
the battering ram that I came here to rep
resent. I know that they are opposed to
making any nominations.
Tiie soldiers of the Confederate army
have heretofore been led to believe that
they were expected to vote for the Rebel
officers who nave been put in nomination
as candidates for the various offices. The
old leaders of the Rebel armies will soon
receive the abuse they justly deserve; for
the soldiers who have been voting to put
tk6ni in office, are beginning to see that
they haye peen ioo;ed, and they wul now
vindicate their manhood py standing up
like heroes and declaring themselves in fa
vor or the principles 01 tne itepuDiican
party, which they would have long ago ea-
poosed, had t not been for tbe machina
tions ot those whom they oeueved to he
I have not made up my mind to vote for
Johnson or Cheatham. I want to stand by
and see the salvation worked out by the
Lord. Do you remember when we all
came here last year and got drunk, (cries
of yes ! yes ! yes !) and broke up the con
vention in a row ? We stood on line a
packof fools and saw Senter and Stokes
scratch each others eyes out and nue over
our heads into power.
What are we going to accomplish by
makihg a nomination? You know we
tried it last year, and ycu all probably re
member tha result. Whv, we might as
well jump ffof tlio paoitol and break our
necks at once as to undertake such a fool
hardy operation. 1 implore you not to
mato a nomination, 11 you nave auy regaru
for the fut'ire prosperity of Republicanism
When Judge Houk had got at this stage
of his remarks, the chairman read a dis
patch which ho had just received from the
Louisville convention, stating that Unas.
O'Conor had bseu nominated a candidate
for the Presidency.
Judge Houk then resumed: Gentlemen,
do you wish a nomination? (Cries of yes,
yes.) Then I must answer those that do,
in the language of the Saviour of the world,
".Lord forgive them, they know not wnat
they do." (Laughter.) This is tho fir3t
time since the war that theie Has been a
breach in the Democratic party. If we put
a ticket in the held, you heal the breach,
If we let this opportunity for letting the
Democrats die pnss us, it cuts off all our
hopes for the next five years. If you do
what you propose, you will secure the de
feat of every opportunity to elect our'Iegls-
1 itors. If you" put a ticket jn the field, yon
will 103C at least B.ulX) votes in iiast Ten
nessee. In vindication of his remarks he
read tho following dispatch:J
Washington, D. C, Sept. 1872. Re-
coked at 9:26 A. m. To L C. Houck The
policy of your dispatch is undoubtedly the
true one, and my letter in hand3 of Gov.
Bard covers the whole ground.
J, M. Edmunds,
Secretary of tha National Republican Con
All we have dono for the last two years
the only thing we have done is to come
down to Nashville, hold a convention and
pass a beautttul re?Qlutiqt declaring that
tha whole earth is "ours and we are entitled
to the possession thereof. But wo never
come into the possession; we get to the
promised land and we never cross tho Jor
dan. The papar3 up North print these res
olutions, and people who read them say,
"Well, ain't them Radicals down in Ten
nessee brave?" They are tickled by it, but
we do not feel as largo after the election as
we did before.

as follows :
Union Republican Executive Com
mittee, Washington City, '72. Gov.
Sam Bard: In view of the several conver
sations with younelf and others, I desire to
say tnat our menus nere concur in ine opin
ion that if a Grant Democrat of high char
acter and qualifications should be brought
out for Governor, it would be wiso on the
part of Republicans to accept him, unless
there are reasons to the contrary not known
to us. J. M. Edmonds.
Tardley, (colored) of Knoxville, made a
speech opposing a fjill nomination.
Mose3 R. Johnson, (colored) of David
son county, spoke in favor of a full nomi
tion. Col. Tom Waters stated that he arose to
make a motion as a measure of reconcilia
tion. He thought if the Republican party
acted prudently in the convention, it would
to thft credit of tha Republican
party at the November election. He showed
what oeneuis were gainea oy maiangno
nnm inatinn. Two candidates, one a John
son and tbe other a Cheatham roan would
run in every county lor pne state .Legisla
ture, which had to redistrict the State into
ton nnntrrpjw'nnal districts. The Republi
can party would gain a majority in the Le
gislature, ana inereoy gam nve uongreas
mnn. This was to be gained by electing
Johnson or Cheatham.
He moved in lieu or the resolution, wnicn
was the report of the Committee of Con
ference, that only a candidate for Governor
and a candidate for Elector for the State at
large be made.
Mr. Tillman, of the Fourth Congressional
District, made a few remarks, urging a
friendly and conciliatory course. He
wanted to nominate candidates for Gover
nor and Elector. He thought tbe colored
men should establish friendly relations
with the white men among whom thoy had
to live. All Democrats should be received
into the party, and hands clasped across
the bloody chasm. Thb was being done
in New York, where the Republicans were
running a.former Democrat, Gen. Dix, who
was an honest man. From a letter he re
ceived from Simon Cameron yesterday, he
thought the Republicans would carry New
Hardly had Mr. Tillman taken his seat
when several cried out, "I am opposed to
that," and Jacob Brown (white), of Frank
lin county, made a fiery onslaught, referred
passionately to that part of Mr. Tillman's
remarks which said that if no nomination
was made by the Republican party the col
ored ineri would have an opportunity of
voting for Grant at the polls in November,
the white men would be glad to get them
there, whereas under other circurastances
(a nomination being made) they -would en?
deavor to keep as many of tha colored
members of the party as no 33ible from the
ballot-box. This he denounced passionate
ly as unworthy the Republican party and of
being mentioned at this late date and in a
Mr. jTrimble moved to lay both motions
on the table.
A. G. Suarp made a motion to take the
vote by counties on Mr. Trimble's motions.
Some discussion ensued and a gentleman
called for order.
The chair ruled that tha house was
highly disorderly, because of its members
standing thickly on the floor.
Some one said the motion to vote by
calling counties was withdrawn.
'Mr; Trimble said it was getting late and
this mode of voting would require much
Judge Houk said the motpn vva3 with

called if the vote was close or if they de
sired it. The vote was called and response
A. G. Sharp, of Chattanooga, said they
bad come here to oppose gubernatorial and
congressional nominations. Tbe party
would be imperilled if the nomination was
made, and they being in a minority wanted
to go by the record to see who brouzht
about the ruin.
Judge Houck said the question of nomi
nation involved ;be life and dpath of the
Republican party, and bo wanted the coun
ties called so as to see who has caused the
death of the party.
Mr. Trimble said: "Tho keeping ot the
Republican party is not in your hands
(meaning Judge Houck) nor in mine.'?
Somo diicussion arose as td the' right of
voting by counties when tbo"qu63tion had
been voted on viva voce.
The chair ruled that it was in order to
take the vote by counties, as this wa3
agreed to when the gentlemen agreed to let
the question go before tbe house.
Col. Waters move that the vote be taken
separately on each of tho resolutions being
laid on the table.
It was asked that the basis of representa

Judge Houk moved that the convention
adjourn until "nine o!clock to-day, so as to
give the members time to consult and

A member moved that tho resolutions be
adopted. No second.
Judge Houk moved that tbe adoption of

Judge Trimble and another member re
quested Mr. Houk to withdraw his motion.
Judge Houk said he didn't hear the res
olutions distinctly and did not know but
what there was a provision in some of them
favoring a nomination.
Mr. Wisener the chairman of the Com
mittee o'n Resolutions asjufgd. the gentle
man there was no such clause in the reso

The Convention bein ready to vote, the
Secretary was instructed to call the names
of the counties.
Tle Davidson county delegation were re
quested to meet in room 5fo. 6 to consult.
Judge Houk wanted to know how the
chair could tell who had a right to vote.
Che chair stated that be presumed there
was 'some common honesty among the
members in the Convention.
Judge Houk said he did not have much
faith in the honesty of conventions.

call of the counties.
Col. Wm. Spence said, in the coarse of
the proceedings, tnat be wanted tbe name

The Secretary then proceeded to call the
names of the coun'.ies, and while adding up
the result, Coi. Spence wanted to read a leu
ter from Col. Wm. G. Brownlow, on the

A colored member opposed its reading,
because it would not cha 'ge the result or
the voting cf the counties.
The gentleman was not allowed to read
Tha result was 564 against and 129 for

The Secretary was instructed to take tbe
yqte by counties. Galls were raade to
learn who were the oandidates and how
many there were.
It appearing that there was only one
candidate, Hon. A. A. Freeman, before tbe
convention, on motion, this gentleman was
unanimously declared to be the nominee
Judge Trimble then nominated Hon.
Horace Maynard for Congressman for the
Slate at large. Carried, and the nomina

had time to interpose an objection. The
convention became very enthusiastic,
and amid long and intense cheeis for May

Mr. Trimble said tnere was 'business be

At this juncture, Cel. Spence appeared
again, and offered these resolutions :
Resolved, That it is the sense of this

organization of the Republican party should
be secured, and to this end that a State
Executive Committee should be appointed,
five from each one of the three grand di
visions of the State, which committee of
fifteen shall meet and elect a chairman and

phis respectfully, who shall bo in communi

Resolved, That the Chair appoint said
The Chair will announce the committee
in a few days.
Mr. Maynard being called upon made a
short speech, a synopsis of which is as fol
lows: Gentlemen of the convention, I now
clearly understand the result of your pro
ceedings and give freely my opinion. And
I may be permitted to say that, what you
have done in this convention, will stand as
a shining record on tbe annals of tho Re
publican party of this State. I never antic
ipated that my name would be used in con
nec.ion with the Governorship of this State.
When subsequently my friends mentioned
my name as the nominee for Congressman
for tho State at large, I' tried to catch 'the
eye of the chairman, aud was about to pro
pose in place of myself the name of the dis
tinguished citizen of Tennessee I had in
mind. But the action of the convention
was so simultaneous that I was nominated
before I could do so.
I have ever been obedient to the behests
of the Republicans of Tennessee, and have
held many elevated and honorable positions.
I had reasons for not serving in a public
capacity any longer,
I have been more or leas in tho
political field all my life, and
have for sixteen years served in the great
body of our nation at Washington.
I feel bound, n the mannerln which the
nomination- was made,!td cast my personal,
interest aside, and by the aid of the Re
publican voters of my State ofTennesseei
to represent your interests in. Congress once,
more. -L '... r
' I differ in opinion with lUjosab gentlemen
who think that the nomination for Govern
or, which was made in 1870, was a failure.
iuaigauans nero, Uon. M-. Wisener, who
was the nominee, fought his battles bravely,
and was sustained by a large number of the
Those of our friends who wish to join the
Greeley movement, must do so with a full
view of the step3 they are about toicaka,
I shall canvass theSjate thoroughly in tha
coming contest. I shall ask no other favor
than yon give me your hearty support.
Ithankyoa for this great compliment,
and here will close. Prolonged applause.
At the conclusion of Mr. Maynard's
speech the band played "Hail Columbia,"
and loud calls were made for Hon. A. A.
Freeman, the nominee for Governor, who,
appeared mid prolonged cheers. His re?
marks were substantially these;
Fellow citizens of Tennessee: When I
see I am chosen by so largo and respectable
a body of Republicans, I feel sensible of the
compliment. It is not meet that I should
detain you by any statements of the issues
that have already been brought before this
convention. I would, however, admonish
you that we go into this canvass prop
erly aware of the great interests at stake.
While our memories may stand of thAj day,
as well as of the past, they will serve 113 to
keep in mind thosa true I&publican princi
ples that we, as devotees of hberty, have
always advocated. I am not here, to tell
you what you ought to do, but only to
thank you for this unexpected honor, and
tender yon ray warmest thanks.
The speaker having takeo his seat, Cel.
Wm. Spence moved that a couimittee of
three be appointed to Inform the Hon. Alvin
Hawkins or his nomination as tho Grant
Elector for the State at large. Carried, and
Col. Wm. Spence, of Rutherford, Hon.
James Trimble, of Davidson, and John
Norman appointed on the com r.ittee.
A motion was made and adopted that the
Executive Committee be authorized to fill
all vacancie s throughout the party organi

Mr. Maynard moved th.at tha Cominillee
in each Congressional district of the State
be empowered to make the appointmenCof
such, and such sub-committees as may be
considered necrssary. Carried.
The Convention then adjourned sine die.
Physicians and others of tne city have
"been asked why they got Dr. Clopton to

Buffalo, N. Y., Dec. 13, 1870. Dr. R.
T. Pierce: For the past six months I have
-used -your Golden Medical Discovery in my
practice, and in that time I have tested its
merits in severe coughs; both acute and
chronic, in chronia diseases of the throat,
severe, cases of bronchitis, general derange
ment of the system, constipated condition
of the bowds, and wherever a thorough al
terative, or blood purifier, has been indi
cated. In all cases I have found it to act
gently, yet thoroughly and effectually in re
moving the various' diseased conditions,
and bringing about a healthy action
throughout the system. Yours, fraternally,
H. L. Hall, M. D.
