Political Strife. 1 '
Political strife, says the AtUola -lid . -

war, in which, the hand of brother was rais
ed against brother, and father against son;
in which were ' marshaled on: the field op
posing armies whose numbers excited. tin?
wonder of all civilized nations, and in which
there were displays of skill and valor com
manding the admiration of mankind; and
in which, and during which also more blood
was shed, mors men were slain, more mis.
erj endured, more widows and orpbaa3
made, than in any four years war of recoru
in modern history. :
Ought not these facta to serre as a great
lesson for the future? Shall tLe political
strife which now agitates the land and ex
cites the people lead to the same wfefc l r.
suit? God forbid!- Turbulent aJ i. .

result of the conflict. ' ' ' ' i(

there are ' some thiols more to be feared

They make no threats, indulge in no pu

had no fears, save for the destruction of the
Constitution and laws under which they
live. They know however that submission
to that Constitution and obedience to those
laws do not involve the annihilation of every

tend that this shall be the case whichever

Mural Tablet. We saw in the Firdt
Cumberland Presbyterian Church a neat
mural tablet to the memory of a former be
loved pastor of this society, the Rev.. Mr.
Reed. The tablet bears the followi in
scription: ...
"Rev. Wiley M. Reed was pastor of this
church from April, -1856. to February,
1662. Died, May, 1864. His praise in
the Gospel was throughout all the church."
These touching memorials are, to our
mind, extremely appropriate, and it Is to be
lamented that the practice of thus placing
memorial tokens of faithful pastors in tbe
places w hers they have toiled so nobly is
not more general. Sash. Dispatch. t

turedSobody Hurt ! ,
Vesterday, 6siys:the Mobile Times, 20th
ult., a portion' of t&e city in the neighbor-1
hood of the jail wa8 thrown into confusion
by the announcement that six veteran Con
federates had been unearthed by the chain
gang while removing the extensive breast
works northwest of the jail.
The attention of Captain Seymore was
suddenly attracted by a loud exclamation
from one of the negroes, and he hastened to
the spot, where he" was astonished to see
the ground falling in.' After a moment's
hesitation men were put to work diggiogas
if for dear life around the spot, and the
Captain was soon satis6ed that he had stum
bled upon a cava of same description.
Further digging developed an opening,
and to the great astonishment of the party,
a head was thrust therefrom aDd rapidly
withdrawn. .
"Thinking something must be wrong, fur
ther assistance was summoned, and, after
additional shoveling to enlarge the entrance,
six individuals were dragged into dayligbV
much against their will.
Everybody was astonished at the circum
stance, especially as the prisoners had every
appearance of Confederates.
On - investigation it ' was discovered the
cave, through the' side of which the chain
gang had broken, bad an outlet at the foot
of the old moat; among some thick and im-
penetrable bushes, and that these Con fed e
rates, having determined never to surren-
der, had taken refuge in this cave, and re
mained concealed ever since the capture of
Mobile, t How 'they subsisted it Is dificult

Brought to Justice.
Conover, the infamous, says the Mem
phis Ledger, has been arrested in New
York and carried to Washington.' He ia the
villain who gave secret testimony before a
Congressional committee in regard to the
assassination imbroglio. . He is the villain
who procured one Roberts to swear to a
false statement with the view of convicting
Mr. Davis of complicity in the assassioa
tion of Mr. Lincoln. He is the villain who
has been used by the wor6t men that ever
disgraced official position. He is the vil
lain wh0 should be tried for his crimes, and.
jf found guilty', be 'compelled to serve the
re8t 0f h8 days in tbe penitentiary.
... we hope that the Johnson government
rfr thi3 fellow. To the cata
J Jogue of crimeswhicb have been charged
to .him, might be added, no doubt, that of
murder. It is time to make an example of
all such' villains.
The public men charged to have been ac
complices of this fiend, are not. if the acca
ealion be true, a whit better than be. If
they cannot be dragged to trial before a ja
dicial tribunal, they should be compelled to
walk through the red hot coals of the pub
lie scorn. " Every virtuous finger, nd every
finger that is not over virtuous, should be
pointed at them when they rise in the
morning,when they rest at noon, and when
they lie down a night. It was a safe pro
ceeding, after the sun e ider, and when Davis
was dragged to a dungeon, to slander and
maltreat him. O, it was very brave, it was
sublimely magnanimous, to chain his feeble
linbs, toblind him with lights never quench
ed, and to employ the Conovers to swear
him away to the gallows. But Time has
passed over tbe situation, lights have
streamed upon it and revealed acts that
cannot stand the scrutiny of justice.
A damnable plot was concocted to drag
the head of the Southern Confederacy to tbe
Davis the talse charge oi muroer, convict
him on that, and execute bim for treason,
Conover, tbe tool selected for the occasion,
becoming alarmed, fled and left the plot
shattered at the feet of villainy. The Ju
diciary Committee, when sifting the evi
dence, opened their eyes in astonishment at
the magnitude of the villain's attempt.
Tby made a public report which was a
practical vindication of Mr. Davis. The
plot was a grand one; but Justice.'awakmg
from -a lone sleep, rose in it might and
overwhelmed the conspirators with confu
sion. ,
; We trust that the trial of Conoer will 5 x
the responsibility on the guilty parties, be
they high or low. Let him prove by whom
be was hired to swear falsely that Davis
miht U banged. -Let him expose all, all;
and bring the real criminals to juic.

Forward Your Reports.
It will be interesting to the members of
his old command to learn that Cen.. Hood
has addressed a circular to all commanders
of batteries, battalions, brigades, divisions
and corps who served under him in the late
war, requesting them to forward tohim,'at
New Orleans, without delay, reports ! of
battles in which they were engaged. As
the greater portion of the troops composing
the army cf tbe West, at tbe time of the
surrender, were Tenaesseans, the General's
request ' will, ws trust, meet a hearty re
sponce in this aud other sections of the
We make the following extract from the
circular, as embodying the poicts most
particularly urged by Gen. Hood:
"I would al30 request the commanders of
each separate organization to send, with hia
report, hia r hotorjrpb, and the photograph
of soy ol.9 ci LU coEsusanders killed is ac
tion, together with such facts relating to;
his career and death as may be interesting.
"All officers who served upon my staff
are requested to furnish me withJLheic pho-'
tographs and reports of their labors and ob
servations. . "
The following is regarded as the best
form to embody the most important facts:
Battle of
Dale of , 1 86-'
Hours of action.
Position cf Field.
Ttoops on right.
Troops on left. .
Troops in front and rear.
Number of officers and men present.
Names of all complimented officers
and men in official reports.
Number kiiled. '' -i
Number - wounded.
Number missing. .
Captures of officers, men, guns and flags.
Losses of officers, men, guns and flags.
The battery, batallion, brigade, and di
vision commanders,, who were under my
directions at the battle of Chickamauga, are
particularly desired to send me reports of
the parts they bore." ' -'
The object which Gen. Hood proposes
must meet with general approbation. If we
understand his circular aright, he does not
propose to write a history even of the arm
ies with which be served with so much
distinction, but desires to collect authentic
information in reference to the troops who
have served under his command, and to
collate these facts in such a form that the
future historian may render justice to bis
gallant comrades.
In the absence of official records, the
plan thus proposed for replacing them is
the best that can be suggested. But in
order that it may be attended with success,
it is necessary that general publicity be
given to the circular. The question is of
such general import, and concerns so deep
ly the history of cur times, that we feel we
are discharging a public duty in urging the
press of .Tennessee to assist Gen. Hood in
accomplishing the work which he has un
dertaken. jYash. Banner.
A Gentleman Should Be Recognized
7heiever Found.
The following is from the pen of Gen. D.
II. Hill, in a late number of "The Land we
Love:" '
"We have been asked by a lady friend
how we ought to treat 'our late enemies.'
As her letter is without a signature, we
suspect that there may be some tenderness
in the inquiry, and will therefore deal ten
derly with the subject.
It is a safe rule to recognize the gentle
man and man of honor wherever found,
of whatever creed, sect or nation. We
cannot understand bow men who fought
each other squarely and bravely, can con
tinue to hate each other after hostilities have
ceased. : But we can understand how good
men of both sides can loathe, with bitter
loathing, house burners, thieves and mar
rauders. We can understand tbe contempt
honest men feel for the cowardly miscreants
who kept out of the manly fight to trample
upon and insult the weaker party, aftetr the
fight is over.
We would remind our lady friend that
if the United State army had in it Sherman,
Turehin and Butler it had also Mr. Mc
Clelland, Buell, Heynolds, Sykes, Gibbon,
Stone, Stoneman, Franklin, eto., who con
ducted war upon civilized principles, and
had no defilement of torches and silver
spoons upon their hands. We have heard
a story of that great statesman and jurist,
Ja Jge Butler of South Carolina, which may
assist the' fair lady iu coming to a decision.
When the Judge, then Mr. B was practic
ing law, son of the Emerald Isle came
into bis office and used some very harsh
language, iu regard to a charge made
agaioftt him by the firm of Butler & Co.
Mr. II. indignantly ordered him oat of he
office. The man instantly obeyed, bet re
turning, he put his head in the office door
and said: '
"Misther Butler, you're a jintleman, and
I will niver hurt the likes ov you, but if
ys'll send yer partnership out here, I'll
break ivry bone in his body."
The Eoutherc people have no ill feelings
toward the soldiers and true gentlemen
among their late foes, but we can never
think of tha partnership' without thinking
f Jude Bst!sra Irahsaa."
