srralios. Fill ore-Citizens: Having had tbe honor
of beiug nominated by the late Democratic
Conservative County Convention a can
didate for the House of Representatives,
and having been preveuted by my business
engagements to appear personally before
you, I adopt this method of informing you
of my views in regard as to what ought to
be done for tlie future prosperity of our
First anl foremost I wish to state that I
am a pea.-e man in every sense of tbe word
and in kvorcf giving full aud equal protec
tion before the law, to all citizens without
regard to. nice or color. Peace Is the foun
dation of all good society, and no commu
nity can prosper unless this great blessing
prevails within her borders. The recent
criminal and moat barbarous acts of law
less marauders must be deplored by every
well-meaning citizen, and we are proud to
see that Gov. Brown is doing Ins whole
duty to bring those law-breakers to justice,
and that they will not escape their just
punishment- Such acts as these cannot but
give our State a bad name abroad, and will
prevent capital from being invested here,
and keep many worthy people from seek
ing a home among us.
The time has come when all good citi
zens who wish to see tlte South prosper
should lay aside all prejudice and forget
whether a man wore a blue or gray coat
during the rebellion, but instead, welcome
all good, industrious newcomers to our
beautiful State without regard to their po
litical or religious opinions. I am in favor
of our public school system, and hope to
see our State rank foremost in the march
for education and intelligence I am of.
opinion that a great saving to the Slate may
be effected by abolishing all sinecure or
unnecessary offices, and by employ
ing none but very able men, pay
ing them a liberal salary, or,
if by fees, to let all above a certain amount
be paid back into the treasury. Tlw em
barrassed condition of our finances renders
it necessary that the utmost economy should
be used in all our expenditures, so as to
enable us to pay our liabilities promptly. I
am against repudiation, as 1 believe that
States and corporations are as much in hon
or bound to pay their just debts as private
citizens. Immigration should be encour
aged as much as possible, and if we cannot
allord just now to scud a commissioner to
Europe, JL think it expedient that a liberal
sum shofid be appropriated towards pub
lishing the resources of our
State in pamphlet form in
some of the most prominent European
languages. When on a visit to mv native
home last year, I was often asked by per
sons wishing to come to this country, as to
its resources, climate aud other particulars,
and I bays no doubt tliat if I had had the
proper ofLCial documents to give to them
for information, that quite a number of
them might have settled iu our own State.
Who have since found homes in the North
west. Being in fa-or of immigration it
follows of couiy that I should set my
face against bringing convict la
bor in competition with our
honest and skillful mechanics. I consider
immigration and manufacturing of tjie ut
most necessity to build up our waste places
and to make us a self-supporting, prosper
ous people, as of old. The first will create
a demand for our waste lands, and make
tbem productive once more; the other will
bring our hidden mineral treasures to light
and produce among ourselves such articles
as we are now procuring from abroad at a
great jsjeuniary loss to the Slate.
I have lived in this city for nearly twenty-four
years, tlie best part of my life, and
have always contributed freely to the full
extent of my means to any enterprise which
promised to benefit the city or State, and I
expect to continue to do so in the future.
I have never been an applicant for any
office, and it is oniy at tbe request of a
great many of my valued friends and fellow-citizens,
both native and nat
uralized, that I have consented
to let my name go before tbe
Convention, knowing full well that mauy
abler men could have been found to repre
sent your interests. Should I be elected I
will promise to serve you faithfully to the
best t my ability. As it would take too
much space to give you ray views more
lully, I have given you this brief abstract
of what I believe to be for the best interest
of my adopted Slate.
I remain your obedient servant,

Whatever opinion may lie entertained
concerning action so extraordinary and so
entirely without jtrecedeikt, it cannot fail
to increase elsewhere the estimate of the
value of policies issued by the withdraw
ing companies. The position which they
assume is one which vindicates conclusive
ly their detentiinai ion to be governed sole

prosecution of their business, aud to five it
from every unusually perilous exposure.
Other companies will undoubtedly follow
when the situation becomes fairly under

GOYEBKOB BBOWS'8 SPEECH.
Iam cot here, fellow-citizens, seeking
your suffrage for any position. I hare ad
dressed the people three or four times since
the canvass opened, but only as to-day, up
on invitation from those whohave hereto
fore elevated me to high plans by tlieir
partis! suffrages. The people are entitled
to a full and frank statement of the condi
tion of public affairs, from those, to wImmh
they have confided tlte delicate and intri
cate duty of administering the government,
and when rt quested by the people, their
public servants cannot, if they would, with
hold an expression of their viei upon
great questions which affect the general
welfare of the country, lias public patri
otism sui'k so low that no citizen or office
holder will discuss political questions when
he is not a candidate for office? Or are
tlte times so much out of joint that a man
cannot accept an invitation to address - his
fellow-cit izens without subjecting himself
to the charge of hunting office? These
charges and imputations may have their
origin in breasts whence never emanates
any higher motive or impulse than selfish
aspiration for place or power.
in what I have Lad to say to the country
I have studiously avoided any individual
criticisms, except as a defense against at
tacks upon me or my administration of the
State government. . .
There are several prominent candidates
for the Unied Scales Senate. Some of
them are my personal and political friends.
I had hoped none were my enemies, and
that none were cajiahle of doing me injus
tice. On all occasions, when I have ad
dressed the people, 1 have avoided any
mention of their names or discussion of
their merits or fitness for that high place.
This course was inspired by these reasons:
1. I was not and am not before the coun
try as a candidate for the place.
2. .It is neitlier my province nor my de
sire to discuss the relative merits of men
claiming to be of the same party with my
self in advance of the election of that body
clothed by the Constitution with tbe power
to make the choice. .
3. I do not believe it either wise or po
litic to distract tbe counsels of the Demo
cratic party with a discussion of individual
claims to that position while there are so
many vital questions of State policy to
which public attention should be directed,
and upon which the peoples' representa
tives should be prepared for intelligent
hk. joiixson's mielbyville speech.
For these and other obvious reasons, I
have abstained from any meniion of the
question, but notwitlistanding this prudent
course on my part, Ex-President Johnson,
in his speech at Shelbyville, last Tuesday,
and again the next day, at Mm frees boro,
deemed it profitable to his canvass, or grat
ifying to his feelings, to assail me both of
ficially and personally. The attack was
wanton, unprovoked, and vindictive. And,
while, if I had had no exisling engagement
to address the people, I might well have
passed this matter by as a harmless thrust,
yet having such an engagement with you,
should I now pass it by sub silentio, my
motives might be misconstrued by those
whose good opinion I would not willingly
forfeit. Or, it might be that such silence
would be construed into a confession on
my part to the truth of the charges.
The controversy, if one shall ensue, has
not been provoked by me. But, I hold to
the doctrine of the right of self-defense.
There is no man in this land so high, or so
pretentious, as to claim with impunity the
right to slander another. In what 1 shall
say, however, let it be understood that I
speak for no party, faction, or individual,
and no one but myself is responsible for
my utterances. Nor do I desire, nor is it
my purpose, to become involved in tbe Sen
Mr. Johnson says: "Why. John C.
Brown never drew a Democratic breath in
his life. Before the war he was a Whig."
I! is true, I was a Whig, as -an humble
follower of the fortunes of that grand and
glorious old party, I battled for its flag
until it was furled. I never deserted it in
the hcur of the gloom. 1 clung to its last
hopes of success, as a child clings with
fond affeciion around the pillow of its dy
ing mother. No dazzling prize offered by
a dominant sectional party, at war with
constitutional liberty, did, or could have
lured me, from my party allegiance or my
political faith, whether planted by the
teachings of a Webster, Clay, or Bell, or
other great lights of the Whig partVj or
grounded upon doctrines enunciated by
Jefferson, Jackson or Polk, and other great
leaders of the Democratic party.
I stood by the Whig party. ttte party of
my fathers until its fortunes went down.
And in the memorable contest of 1800, 1
was an humble champion of .the Bell and
Everett ticket, for the preservation of
the Union of the States and the integrity
of the constitution as it came from the
hands of its makers.
If to have been a Whig is discreditable,
then I am under tlte ban. I cherish none
of tliose old party antagonisms. I have as
much respect for the man who was an ante-Ix-llum
Democrat, as for one who was a
Whig, and would now support the one as
cheerfully as tlie other for office. Mr. John
son's standard of Democracy is not the ac
knowledged measure of party merit among
Democrats of this day.
By his rule perliaps I am not a Democrat,
lie regards no one as ent itled to the. appel
latioirwho was not a Democrat from his
cradle, and it may be that very few even of
that class could place themselves within
tbe pale according to his conception of par

zen aud an Executive in making a State
debt to develop her wealth and promote
her commerce, and then urge its repudia
tion. If as the Chief Magistrate and Exec

of over two billions of bonds, to the pay

and Const it ul ion, was pledged, aud then

f sixteen years and eight months, and com
pletely repudiating the principal. If to
have len friendly to the passage of a State
funding law, taken personal benefits under
it, and then for political effect
denounce it as infamous. If
these and otlier kindred practices and
teachings are neceasary to constitute one a
Democrat, then, indeed. I have yet to learn
the first inspirations of such Democracy.
Tliank Gbd, gentlemen, American na
tional Democracy of the present day and
of the day liefore the war, is not founded
on such rules of faith nor upon such prac
tices. Such doctrines will not be tolerated
in the Democratic fold. Tliey are heresies,
and he who entertains them is without tlie
pale of Democracy. Tlie Democratic party
is made tip of former Whigs and Demo
crats. Union men and secessionists, Federal
and Confederate soldiers, of all classes of
men who are desirous of ridding the coun
try of Radical dominion, and who desire to
save the country from drifting into tbe dan-
Saroos sea of centralized despotism. Mr.
obnton can neither read me out of the
lifeiaccytic party nor cast suspicion upon
my pofAical orthodoxy. While I do not
aspim, as he intimates, to be a leader of
that paotj, nor pretend to be its standard,
yet I do Itold to its faith, abide its nomina
tions and support its platforms. Whether
the platforms are sound, I will not now
pacse to consider. - Whether tliey are
"fixed up by little conventions, ur are
"elastic," Ihey are the expressed political
faith of the people and not the ipse dixit
of any self-constituted public mentor.
Xot content with this, he charges that I
am secretly a candidate for the United
States Senate. - Why should -1 conceal tbe
fact if I were a candidate? But if I chose
to be one, what law or rule of propriety
would I violate? Offices of honor, profit
or trust, In this country are free, and every
citizen has the right to aspire to
them, and whe'ber he publicly avows
his claims and parades his own mer
its before the country, or quietly abides his
time in the course of events, is a mere mat
ter of taste, of which every citizen must be
his own judge. Mr. Johnson has no
authority to state that I am a candidate,
lie has no proof upon which to base his
assertion I am.
SOT A CANDIDATE.
Wlien that body which is clothed with the
sole power to fill the vacancy in that high
office is elected, I will have the privilege of
presenting or withholding my claims for its
consideration. This right I do not propose
to surrender or compromise. I do not
question the right of other gentlemen to
pursue a different course. Mr. Johnson,
however, cannot, by the-jUnwarranted at
tacks already made, or by repetitions of
tbem in the future, induce me to swerve
from a purpose deliberately formed to ab
stain from all participation in tbe canvass
is he making. It does not accord with my
view of propriety. The Senatorship is a
position any Tennesseean may covet, and of
which any citizen may feel proud, if con
ferred upon him as a mark of merit, but if
to receive it I must ride over the reputation
of my fellow-man, the victim of my own
malicious slanders, or the honor of my
State or nation brought to disgrace for my
personal benefit, I shrink from, and must
decline, the revolting terms of purchase.
Another remarkable paragraph in this
most remarkable speech of the ex-President
claims my notice :
"As early as Jan. 19, 1867, John C. Brown
received a direct pardon from my hands,
and wit'i that pardon in his pocket, he
seeks my destruction. If this man is tlie
candidate of the Uxiox and American,
I say let it speak out, that tlie people may
know it. So far as I am concerned, I
would not be Senator It I had to buy tbe
place by intrigue and fraud. Applause.)
Thank God, I have learned that the ditler
ence between a competency and more than
a competency is loo small f'r me to throw
aside my character as an honest man to
What is meant by this strange associa
tion, I am at a loss to determine. Its ob
scurity is, perhaps, studied. If he means
to imply that I have procured, or proposed
to secure my office by improper means, or
that I hate resorted to, or will resort to
unfair devices for bis "destruction," or his
defeat, I have only to say that the charge
is untrue, and the slander is defiantly hurled
in the teeth of him who conceived and gave
HIS FCLASKI SPEECH.
Still he is not happy. lie arraigns me
for advising my own people to elect State
Senators and Representatives with refer
ence alone to their fitness to legislate for
the honor of the State and not because of a
desire to elect any particular man to the
United States Senate.
I deliberately gave that advice to the
people of my own county, and I am anx
ious that not only those people, but every
county in the State may follow it. If you
elect men to the General Assembly to
whom you are willing to confide to a man
the delicate duty of legislating upon ques
tions involving your lives, liberties and
property, the' security and protection of
your wives and little ones, certainly you
can entrust him with the less important
duty of choosing a Senator !' Congress,
without committing him in advance to any

lie charges me with having contributed
to the defeat cf his Senatorial aspirations
in lf)9. Suppose I did.' lias it come to
this, that an American citizen cannot de
cline giving his support to another for of
fice without beiug hunted down and hav
ing his motives impugned? Do offices in
this country belong to men, so they can
have tlie right to demand tbem? Is any
one man,' Saul-like, head and shoulders
above his fellows? Has any man a divine
right to be United States Senator because he
has once held it, and because he has held
every office in the gift of his State? My
offence, however, seems to grow out of the
fact that I had in my pocket, one of the ex
President's pardons, which had been given
grudgingly after eighteen month's delay,
while tliey had been freelyisjtensed to
thousands who had contributed to produc
ing the war, bat who had not encountered its
dangers. My sins, if there were any, did
not consist in conspiring against the gov
ernment, for 1 was not a politician and
held no place. -1 only responded to the call
of my State that had given me birth, when
she was forced from her chosen position
of neutrality, by a requisition upon her for
troops to coerce sister States from their de
clared position of independence.
This aside, I have yet to learn that the
exercise of executive clemency chains its
subject to the chariot wheels of the official
whq, dispenses it, for all time to come. It
is a high constitutional prerogative, lodged
with tlie Chief Magistrate to prevent tbe
punishment of innocent men, and for tbe
protection of such as are only technically,
and not morally, -guilty of crime. If the
President exercised this high prerogative in
accordance with the intent of the Consti
tution, it was only an official duty that
created no alliegance to him, but if it was
prostituted to personal services and as a
personal favor, then the President violated
his duty and sltowcd himself unworthy the
trust and confidence reposed in 1dm. Ap
plause. WHAT'S IS A DREAMT
A private letter printed in tbe Boston
Transcript, relates the following curious
circumstances in connection with the death
of the late Bishop Lee, of Iowa :
"We have been very anxious the last two
weeks over the illness of Bishop Lee, which
terminated in his death on Saturday mor
ning. Tbe whole community ate saddened
by the event. Some two months ago he
got up in the night and took a bath, and on
returuiug to his room he made a mistake
and stepped off a long flight of stairs and
landed at the foot with a tremendous crash,
as he was very heavy, weighing over two
hundred pounds. It aroused the whole
family, aud Mrs. Lee and Carrie sprang
from their beds, and lighting each a candle,
went to see what had happened, and found
the Bishop lying on th'j Moor of the entry.
He got up, however, without aid, and
seemed to have received no injury except a
few slight bruises, though his right hand
was a little lamed.
"Mr. II. and myself called on him two
days after, and while telling us of the cir
cumstance of the fall, lie mentioned this
coincidence: He had a letter in his hand
which lie had just received from his son
Henry, living at Kansas City. His son
wrote: 'Are you well; for last night I had
a dream that troubles me. I heard a crash,
and, standing up, said to my wife: "Did
you bear that crash? I dreamed that fattier
had a fall and was dead." I got up and
looked at my watch, and it was two o,clock.
1 could not sleep again, so vivid was the
dream.' And it made him anxious to hear
"The Bishop said be was not supersti
tious, but he thought it remarkable that
Henry should have had the dream at tlie
very hour of the same night that the acci
dent occurred. The difference in the time
there and here is just fifteen minutes, and
it was quarter past 2 by his watch, making
it at tbe same moment. It was as if he ac
tually heard the falL And the fall finally
caused the Bishop's death. His hand be
came intensely painful, and gangrene set
in, which, after two weeks of suffering, ter
minated his life. We are none of us Spir
itualists, as you know, but surely facts like
this must go far to make us realize that
there is a basis ot truth for their hypothe
sis of spiritual faculties resident in man.
How did Henry Lee become cognizant of
the accident to his father?"

The Bald Eagle of the Mountains, as
Bill Stokes Is called for short, is a famous
mail in Tennessee politics. He was in
Congress from this district before the war,
and for two terms since. He was a candi
date for the Senate against Brownlow, and
came so near defeating him that tbe crusty
old gentleman never quite forgave the Bald
Eagle for his impertinence. . He ran for
Governor against Senter, and was defeated
because Senter was the acting Governorrand
adroitly enfranchised all the ex-rebels in
consideration of their voting for bins.
During the war Stokes was a Colonel in
tbe Federal army. He had a regiment of
native Tennessee cavalry, which be led
tlirough trackless wastes of gore, so to
speak. .Forrest so. the story runs once
had him and his command surrounded in a
Middle Tennessee town. With character
istic humanity, lie sent to the mayor of the
place to "remove the women and children
and Stokes' cavalry, as he should shell the
town!" - .
They tell this yarn on Stokes, and a
great many others; but the truth is, Stokes
was a brave and efficient officer, and com
manded a regiment that did fine service
for tlie Federal cause. Let us do the old
man justice, if he Is au .ndependent candi
date for Congress, and seeking to "hurt the
Stokes n as one of the most popular Re
publicans in Tennessee, until he allowed
himself to be mixed up with tbe Tinker
Dave Beaity swindle, by which Uncle Sam
was swindled out of one hundred and fifty
thousand do! Lais. . Tinker Dave had a
command of independents during tbe war,
w1k fought for each side as occasion might
require, and stole from both. Stokes was
instrumental in getting a bounty and back
pay act through Congress for tbe benefit of
these men, and pocketed a slice of
tbe fat himself. For his part in
tbe transaction, he was fined fifteen
hundred dollars, I believe, by a District
of Columbia oitrt, which fine he paid
up like a little man. Since that be has
been in retirement upon his farm near
Alexandria. Between feeding his hogs
and watching his'hired freedmen follow
the plow, he has meditated profoundly up
on the great questions of tbe day. He has
come to the conclusion that great wrongs
have been inflicted upon tbe Union men
of tbe South by the Government so many
gave their heart's blood to support. Hav
ing pondered these subjects for four years,
lie comes out as an Independent candicate
for Congress upon a platform of his own
I saw him, Saturday, and be told me of
his programme aud platform.
PAYMENT FOB SLAVES.
"When the wr broke out," said Mr.
Stokes, "I liad twenty or twenty-five nig
gers, worth fieen or twenty thousand dol
lars. They were my property as Justly and
fairly and squarely as any man's horse is
his property. Tliey were guaranteed U me
by the laws of my country and the Constl
tion of the United States. They were, in
fact, especially guaranteed to me by a
special provision of the Constitution.
"How did I come by those niggers ? In
1818, when only three years old,my father
started to this country from tbe moun
tains of North Carolina. On the way he
fell out of the wagon and broke his neck.
We moved on to De Kalb county, squat
ted in the wilderness. I grew
up, you may say, at the plow handle. I
had no money to get an education, and con
sequently didn't get much education. But
I worked at tlie plow, and bought me a
piece of land, and raised corn on that land
with my own liands. Then I bought up a
few hogs, fed 'em the corn, drove 'em
South, sold 'em and bought a nigger, and
brought him home. I did that every year
till I had about twenty aud was doing

"Well, the war came up, and I took sides
wilh the Union, aud raised a regiment for
the Federal service. The way the thing
turned out, I was fighting all the time to
free my own niggers, to strip myself of the
hard earnings of a life time. They per
tended that it was a military necessity to
free the slaves. It was no military neces
sity; tlie North was full of men. They
freed the niggers because they wanted to,
and not because it was a necessity. Now, I
say, by the Lord, they must pay ns for our
niggers in the South, or we
WON'T HELP THEM PAY THE BONDS.
"This is my platform in . a . nuUhelL
Ei her tbe North must pay us for our nig
gers, or well go in for repudiating the two
thousand millions of war debt that is hang
ing over us. They say that it was a neces
sity to create the debt and to free the nig
gers. Admit it, if you please. If both
were alike ne-'essary, treat both alike, and
if we have to help pay tbe debt, then you
help us bear the loss of the niggers. Ain't
that fair, just and honest between men and
men, and section and section? Why, just
look at it. During the war the North
ern people were paid big prices for every
thing they furnished the army. . They
put that money in bonds, when gold was
two for one and upward. On these bonds
they have been drawing interest in gold,
and claim that tbe principal shall be paid
in gold. I say if you are not going to pay
us for our niggers, that they have already
collected enough on the bonds, and 1 am
opposed to paying another cent. My prop
osition to Cho Govemmei-t is thisc Either
issue two thousand millions of dollars of
bonds to pay us in the South for our nig
gers, ar else we shall insist on repudiating
all the bonded indebtedness that now ex
ists. The people of the North can't have
all the pay ai.d us none. And that is going
to be the great question of tbe future.
Either the war debt must be repudiated or
we must have pay for our losses."
GO SLOW !
A Slrnlfleaot Warning- to tbo Chatls.
ooff Convemtioai of Carpet-bo,
New York Tribune, Oct. 8.
The eminent patriots who are getting
up the Southern Republican Conven
tion have i eceived a violent set-back by
the Administration. The part of the
programme which favors a third term
for Piesident Grant does not find favor
at the White House. The National
Kepvblican, which speaks only what ia
pumped into by the Administration,
says the Convention ought to be "com
posed of native Republicans so far as
possible," should contain as "few Fed
eral office-holders as possible," taking
care to give no ground for the charge
that "it is a mere bread-and-butter
brigade, whose statements are entitled
to no credit, and whose views should
meet with no consideration." Further
more it should confine itself exclusively
to Southern questions. "If we must
have the gathering," says the Jlepub'
lican, "put the best men forward, and,
above all, let us have no nonsense about
questions of National politics, ' which
are nearly two years in the future, and
which will take care of themselves.
There are some very zealous, superser
viceable gentlemen in the South who
will, in all probability, torn up in the
Convention some of them hailing from
South Carolina, too and who will en
deavor, if we are correctly informed, to
use it as a means of advancing their
own personal interests. They should
be watched, and any attempt on their
part to pursue their characteristic prac
tices should be promptly and effectu
Can it be possible that tbe "super
serviceable gentleman hailing from
South Carolina," who is thus violently
sat upon, is Senator Patterson? He
has been the chief spokesman of the
Convention, and has talked very loudly
about its declaring for a third term.
The best thing he can d will be to ad
journ his Convention before it meets.
Fhom tlie stomach of Capt. OtU Rogers,
of Marshfield, Mass., has been extracted an
animal five indies long, which he thinks he
swallowed while drinking from a pool in
South Carolina during the war.
Silence is the fittest reply to folly.

for sight; the advance in borrowing rates
for cash gold had a depressing e fleet on the
exchange market. The imports of dry
goods for the week amounted to $-',019,347.
Gold opened at 110 and closed 110,, all
tbe sales of tbe day liaving been at these
figures. The borrowing rates were 1-64
per cent, per diem and 1 to 3 per cent, per
annum, loans also were made flat; at tbe
close there was some little fear of "squeeze"
in cash gold in future. The clearings
to-day were $33,0C0,0C0. Government
bonds were quiet. State bonds were dull
and strong except Tennessee which are
lower. Railroad bools were active and iu
some cases higher. The general unsettling
of stock speculation during tbe past few
days consequent upon the actual suspen
sion of mercantile firms, added to unfound
ed rumors tiirculated about well known
houses, has resulted in giving the bear ele
ment a preponderance iu tlie market and a
further decline took place. To-day the
market opened weak at )af per cent, below
the closing prices of yesterday, and later
made a furthei decline of 1 per cent- As
the day advanced tbe market improved JaJ
per cent. Late in tlie afternoon there was
a general falling off iu prices of jal) per
cent, and in tlte last dealings the lowest
quotations of the day were made. Erie
fell off 2 J per cent, at one time, tbe decline
being the result of English Accouutants'
report given the Loudon Stock Excliangn
to-day. The decline at the close was most
marked in NJrthwestern common. Lake
