The Sonthern Independence Committee having
been urged by numerous citizens to name a candi
date to fill the vacancy in tho representation from
Davidson county in the popular branch of the Leg
islature occasioned by the resignation of E n
Hist, Esq , respectfully recommend IbaP. Joxes,

Kamon In East Tennessee.
We learn from letters from East Tennessee that
rumors are rife thero that a great reaction has
taken place in this portion of the State in favor of
submission to the acts of Abraham LttCoLX, subver
sive of Constitutional liberty, with the view to ut
terly subjugate the South and carry forward the
doctrines of Black Republicanism. We
can but believe that those who originate such re
ports know well that they are totally unfounded,
and on tho contrary, that the small remnant of
Unionism which either ignorance, prejudice or lacir.
of patriotism yet keeps alive, is fast melting away
before the overpowering convictions of an aroused
and determined people. Of tho miserably small
squad of Unionists that yet adhere to their untena
ble position in the county of Davidson, all of them
belong tp one of the classes above described. Those
who still vaunt their devotion to the once glorious
but now perverted and disgraced Union, through
mere prejudico, and some of whom are clever men
in all the relations of private life, arc regarded as
monomaniacs who cannot in political matters see
... bevond the cant and clap trap of old party watch
words, and are incapablo of forgetting the fancied
injuries to their pride and feelings which party dis
cussions have engendered. Such men justly have no
influence in any great movement, and arc generally
set down, by their friends, as entitled to charity and
pity from tho imbecility of prejudice that smothes
their better leelings and makes them tho prey to
wrong headedness, obstinacy and passion. It is hoped
and believed that these men will pause in their career,
and at least when the voice of the people ofTennessee
shall be proclaimed for separation from the tyranny
at Washington and union with our Southern breth
ren to secure our common rights, that they will not
then add criminality to their misguided zeal for an
odious cause.
That class of the tmall squad of Unionists, who
from ignorance of the facts or iucapaciiy to appre
ciate and estimate their bearing, are drift
ing into an odious position similar to that
of the Tories of 1776, ought to be treated
kindly, reasoned with and enlightened by their
friends, so that they may see that tho tendency
of their acts is towards encouraging an internecine
war upon our homes and firesides, the butchery of
our families,, and the enthronement in our midst of
a reign of terror, destructive of the constitutional
guarantees of freedom and the sanctity of home.
Every means ought to be used to teach such erring
j ersons the error of their ways; and they ought
morevpr to be taught that when the people shall de
cree "separation and representation" in June.it is
due to their safety and the self preservation of the
State, that their raven notes should cease, and no
longer be heard to "give aid Rnd comfort to the com
mon enemy.1'
The third claw of Unionists are those whose
hearts aro far away from their homes. They are
Black Republicans in fact, and enemies to our peo
ple. The indignation of the people against such men
h justly hot. fierce and unrelenting. That such a
class should be permitted to di'grace our soil, is
only ascribable to the spirit of tolerance Hnd cou
servatijtn which reigns throughout the South. Af
ter the Sth of June, they will no longer be known
among us Until then the sacredness of the ballot-
box will screen them from injury, but not from
scorn. But when Tennessee shall take her position,
with the one great and patriotic object of protect
ing her soil against invaders who hold precisely a
similar position with these men. they must hide
their heads from public view, and woe to them, il
they shall be fuund practicing their peculiar and
damnable doctrines in cur midst.
Work for the Arxur in itio Penitentiary
We made a visit to the Penitentiary yesterday in
company with Capt. Rcws of the Artillery, and
were highly gratified at the forwardness of the
work for supplying the army vrith the equipments
of the soldier. Cob Jonxsos. the polite and ener
getic agent, accompanied us into all the departments
and we found everything prosresaing satisfactorily,
and with extraordinary rnergy, under his 'supcrin-
tendencc. There are C." men emp'oyed alone in
making cartridges, in the proportion of 20,000 a
day, and in a few days the proportion will greatly
increase, from the skill derived by experience.
We also visited Uie room m vrmcn muskets are
being repaired and cleaned. There are 30 men em

Some of the old muskets arc very much out of
order, but they are made as bright and perfect, as
when new, under the hands of the men,
Various hands are employed in making cap boxes

If it wore possible for our State, by lier vote on

The people would groan under a burden of taxa

Tlic War Tax.
Much stress is laid unon the fact, that the Bill re
cently passed by the Legislature, "for the defence of
Vie State," authorizes the levy of a tax ol eigid cents
oa the one hundred dollars, which will make the
State taxes more than double what they are at
present.
this tact is Kept oetore me people, 10 excite iueir
fears and force them into submission. Let the peo
ple examine the question, and the argument will be
robbed of all terror. It is true that the State tax
the nasfvear was seri cents on the hundted dol
lars, and that under this bill the tax will be ffletn
cents. There is an additional fact the honest tax
payer ahould bear in mind, to w:t: Prior to the last
regular session of the Legislature, tho tax in Ten
nessee was fAtrffcn ai2 one-sixteenth cents upon the
S100 of taxable property. Owing to tho rapid in
crease in the value of property and economical ad
ministration of tho State Gevernment, said Legisla
tors rpdnned the tax to seven centt on the S100 " a
lighter tax than the people of Tennessee had paid
lor 17 years, and perhans the lightest tax of any
other State in the Union.''
Tho nresent tax bill does not mereage the t3xe
ftro cents on the S100 more than was paid two years
since. This bill which is the subject of so much
bitter animadversion, only requires the man worth
ten thousand dollar to pay the pitiful sum of ei'jhi
doitais, to protect that property from eonfiscali-n
and destruction. Ihe poor man worm one mousauu
dollars has to pay Jie eiionnoiis sitm of eighty cents
to preserve las hnusencio gods, protect nis asvuicu
wile and rosy cheektu children from brutal vio
lence or destruction. Knoxville Register.
This war tax crv i3 one of tie most arrant hum
bugs with which designing men ever -attempted tj
deceive an intelligent people, and we wonder that
the people of Tennessee have tho patience to
treat with any sort of respect, tho man who
places so low an estimate upon their intelli
gence, as to fcalieve luu ney can uc
swerved from the performance of a high and pa
triotic duty by such appeals to their cupidity. Our
taxes, even in these war times, aro not near so
hiah as they wuie in the States North of us before
the war commenced. For instance, in New Hamp
shire and Maine the tax was 20 cents on the S100
of taxaMe property. Ia Pennsylvania it was 25
cents ; in Minnesota, 2G cents ; in Ohio 31 cents,
and in Illinois. 77 cents. The latter State, in which
the tax before tho commencement of the war was
jii-e times greater than ours will be t-ince the war,
is one of the most prosperous States in the Wc3t ;
equally so with ours in all the elements of wealth.
yet wo hear of men going about deploring the utter
xuiu that has been brought upon tho people ot mis
State by the war tax! Could an exposure of their
hypocrisy be more withering than thi3 simple state

Nobfolk, May -20. Wo stop tho press to announce
that a skirmish took place, Saturday, below.
- We learn tho steamer J. M. Smith was -below at
about 12 or I o'clock, attending to some errands at
Boush's Bluff, when she was fired at by the steamer
Monticello of tbc blockading squidron.
The Monticello fired a blank cartridge across the
bow of the Smith to warn her to lav to. but as the
Smith disregarded the warning tho Monticello tLen
fired a shot which missed its mark. ' Capt. louog.at
Boush'a Bluff Dattcry, then fired one or two shots at
the Monticello, one of which it 13 believed, struck
her. Sho thitt backed out and opened her fire on the
earth works now erecting at So wall's Point, which,
it ia believed, she destroyed. So far, -nobody hurt"
Repeated firing Has been heard from below since
the above took place.
XATSU ADDinoSAL FARTTUtAES.
Wo gave in our, Saturday afternoon's second edi-'
tion, the abovo outline of the Urst uattie in tni3 sec
tion, which wo find, in tho mam, correct; since
which time wo have gathered the following partic
ulars from aa eye-witness.
The steam tug Kahukee, Captain Baylor, (not the
J M Smith, as reported,) started down on Saturday
about half past 12 o'clock, to carry ono hundred
negro laborers to the battery now in tho course of
erection at Se wall's' Point. When she arrived in
that vicinity she saw the steamer Monticello lay
ing well over in the month of James river. The
Kahukee took her position as near the earth works
as prudent, lowered her yawl and sent it ashore
with as many of the laborers as it would carry;
these were landed, and the boat was about return
ing for another load, when the steamer aionuceiio,
which had steamed away.from.the mouth of James
river, and crono in the direction of Old Point, as
those on board tho tug thought, came round the
point of woods at the extrfme end of Sewall's
Point, in chaws of the Kahukee, The latter was
now about three miles below Boush's Bluff, the
rmltr tilsro whcrB thprff urn anv " sruns mounted in
that immediate vicinity, and seeins the Monticello
about coming after her, steamed up the river to es
cape. Tho Monticello then fired a shot after her, which
not answering the purpose of stopping her, she re
neate.l bv firing a shell, which wo understood ex
ploded about fifty yards in advance of her. In the
meantime, the chase had become so exciting to
those in command of tho Monticello that she was
about getting into a good position to be cracked at
bj- Captain Young's battery at Baush'a Bluff. Cap
tain Yminfr havintr now ono cun to bear on
her, though at long range, let fi at her with that,
which was eraDe shot, and scattered about her like
hail stones. The Montlecllo immediately backed her
engine, and without turning round got out of harm's
way. She then dropped down opposite the place
where we are erectine a battery at Sewall's Point.
She here opened her fire on tho unfinished breast-
woria wivninemtentiou 01 aemonaning uieui.ui.atui;
continued until, as It was supposed, ber aramuni
tion was exhausted, and in the meantime the little
steamer Yankee came un to her nid. They two
togethor kept up the bombardment for about three
hours, say lrom 1 to 4 o docs.
Thev were still firine when another "lttle steamer,
supposed to be the Young America, came over from
Old Point when thev ceased. The two small steam
ers, the Yankee and Young America, then left for
Old Point, and Monticello kept her position in the
nciirhborhood until our informant left.
These steamers were about a quarter of a mile
from the unfinished works, during the time they
were hammering away at them eo, but we learn
have scarcely soiled the works, the only damage
being the starting of a log of one of the embra
sures. Out of about thirty shot and shell only one
took effect as above.
The women and children livinst in the neighbor
hood were very much alarmed, and left their houses
and sought safety by flight.
Thrro wai no one on the nlace armed. A white
man had a Sharp's rifle loaded, with which he stocKf
upon the worlc, toon aim anu nrea; inouga 11 is
not known with what effect. Another man had one
of Allen's old stylo pocket pistols which he had left
near the beach in the crotch ot a tree, ite men
tioned the circumstance to a negro who volunteered
to co after it for him: he told him not to do so,
The necro. however, watched his chance between
fires, and darted to the tree and got it; thus evinc
ing a remarkable degree ot leariessness,
' The Kahnkee's boat, then at the shore, put off for
the steamer, and the battery at th9 Bluff, mistaking
her for one of the enemy's boats, fired a shot after
her, which caused her to put back. This shot we
understand was a line shot, but the distance was
ton 17T-p.1t to do anv damase
The hands at the works were strongly tempted to
scamper off, till the first two or three shots from
the Monticello wero fired, but finding their ability
to dodae them bo finely, they held their places in or
der to sec the fun. Many of the shots took effect in
the trees, limbs from which were cut off, which was
the most dangerous leature 01 we wnoie auAir.
Thev. however, kent clear of the trees, and avoided
the danger from that source. The ball and shell

mud from which some of them would scatter like

neighborhood, who rose en masse, and ascertain

ANOT1IKS ENGAGEMENT TUB MONTICELLO CRUTLCD AND
WITHDRAWS.
As will anDear from the above, the steamer Hon
ticel'o kent the position near the breastworks.
where she hitched on to a buoy Saturday .after the
firine-. She remained thero until yesterday, watch
ing the operations ashore, and in oi der to keep them
from going on witn me worss. 111c oaitery m on 1
sand bank and verv much higher than the steamer,
she consequently did not see everything that was
going on, notwithstanding the strict watch, for the
boys were at work like moles, some of them, we
understand, having to lay flat on their stomachs to
perform some part of their labor,
On Saturday evening when the firing ceased, there
was not a gun on the Sawall's Point battery, but by
men fighting for their rights, herculean feats can be
performed. Three short 32-pounders were carried
down from the city, and got in tolerable condition
for temnorarv use. Besides these, two six-inch field
rilles pieces, the guns of the United States were
drawn un in nosilion. me wnoie uonceaica irom
view of the enerav.
Yesterday (Sunday) evening, about four or five
o'clock, a small schooner from below passed up
and when near the Monticello she fired a gun which
passed over the battery. It i3 not known positively
whether she fired al the schooner or at the battery
though it is asserted by some that the schooner was
acting in the capacity ot a iook out tor 1110 sieamti
and had sent a boat alonuside of her before she fir
ed the gun. The idea is that the schooner got as
near the fort as possible and sent a man up on her
mast head to spy into tne ion, uiosc inaiuu oeini; un
. - . 1 1 ; 1
concious Ot wnat was goins; on. auu umumi; iier
tripml. Ilowever. that first aun was taken as
banter, and the battery answered it. with as much
spirit and rapidity as convenience would allow; tne
second ball, we understand, taking tho effect in her
rigging, much of which was cut away. The firing
ormiimipd for some considerable time, by both the
btcamer and the battery.
The two rifle cannon, it is said, did the most exe
cution, a shell from ono of which, it is reported,
burst on striking the steamer's rigging, though it is
not known whether it proved fatal. The steampr
was struck in her hull several times nearly amid
phips, and one hole, we understand, was knocked
intoJier side large enough for a flour barrel to en
ter. The steamer's battery was finally silenced; and
about that time tho two little steamers, the Yankee
and Young America, came up. both of which, we
understood, fired a few balls at the fort. They all
three then started off down the river towaids Old
Point.
It is the general impression that the Monticello is
seriously crippled, from the manner in which she
was creened over when she left, and probably from
her having ceased her fii so quick.
The shot and shell from the steamers flew over
the batteay, manv of them striking a mile in the
rear. One shell bursted near the battery without
injurv. A piece Of it weighing four or five pounds
we saw last night.-The tops of the pine trees in the
neighborhood were pretty well cut down by the
shot and shell from the Yankees, and the boughs
and splinters were scattered about with a good deal
of activity, though with no bad results, except the
scratching ot the hand of one of the staff officers
who was present.
It gives us pleasure to hear so glowing a report
of the spirit of bravery which was brought out in
this engagement. We feci satisfied that our cause
is in the hands of the right kind of men.
During the cannonading, we understood, some of
the infantry sallied out on the beach and discharged
their small arms, (Minnie rifles, wc presume.) at
the Monticello, she being, what was considered at
the time, within range. It is said that every man
engaged on shore acted the part of a hero; the only
regret being that they were not more thoroughly
prepared for the occasion, by having their heavy

enemy. , . ,
The only injury, we understand, with tho excep
tion of tho staff officer, was that received by Mr.
Wm. tiorrie, of tho Woodis Rifle corps, who got his
ankle bruised bv tho rebound of one of the big
guns. We understand the irjury is very sliaht.
Not a shot of the enemy struck the works to injure
them, most of them passing far overhead. "No
body hurt" on our side, though we don't believe
we can sav the same thing for tho enemy, as the
apparent confusion on board seemed to indicate
otherwi-e.
It is thought by some that this attempt on our
battery is a ruse to draw our attention from some
point of more importance to the enemy. Ilowever
this may be, they will find it unavailing as our peo
ple now begin to realize that they are at war, and
have got fighting to do; which, judging from the
eagerness displayed by "the boys," they will do to
perfection if the Yankees will only givo them a
chance.
By others it is surmised that the nttask on that
unfinished battery was intended merely to demolish
it; that they did not know it was there till they dis
covered it on Saturday, whilst in pursuit of the
steamer Kahukee, and finding it unprepared to re
turn their fire, they anchored near by to deter our
folks from working on it We rathir suspect the

Aereatdealof wonderment shows itself, hero
and there, ia tho txking of Fort Sumter, nobody
was slain. There is really no occasion for won
derment at all. In Fort Sumter, the garrison was
so small, that every man could cover himself, and
the early abandonment of the bin-belle enabled them
to save their bacon belore it was burnt. In re
card to the Carolina troops the engineering work
was admir ibly done, and studiously designed, the
better to cover all parties engaged from every cas
ualty. Wc had ample time for precautions, and
our Engineers made the most of it.
First, it was known that only so many men wero
in garrison at bumter. They could, accordingly,
man only so many guns.
Jxext, it was known that only so many guns couia
be brought to bear upon our batteries ; and these
batteries were so placed, accordingly, as to auow
ol their exposure only to the smallest possible num
ber of guns. Sand bags, and iron, and traverses,
did the rest

and other points were calculated to'bear almost sole

philosopher ot tne ruritan scuooi, seems to nave,
made a blunder at the beginning, in not opening fire
for full two hours after the Carolina batteries had
been at work. By this time the ranee had been gain
ed, and his barbette had become quite too hot. lor

see to shoot at half-past four in tho morning. But
thia difficulty could only ajply to his casemates. On
his barbette he had lust aa much light as ins assail

had something more. Could he have Kept up me
work at his barbette guns, he woull nave done mucn

He said that he. in common with a great majority
of the people of Tennessee, had been devo'ed to the

had done all in their power to secure peace and
reconstruct the Government. But that usurpation
had followed usurpation on the part of tha Admin

that the day and the hour had arrived n hen the

We take the following extract from a letter re
cently written by Judge Nathan Green, well known
throughout the South as being connected with the
Lebauon Law School, in reply to an invitation to
address the people at Knoxville. He has been an
ardent lover of the old Union, and is now in the
seventieth year of his age. He says :
I think our self-respect, our honor, and our sa
cred rights, all demand that we sevtr our connec
tion with the United States forever. Surely, no
son of the South would turn his arms agaitst the
Confederate States in this emergency, anJ assist
lae oppressor to suojugute uie wruiigeu uiiu wjureu
nartv. What if they did spurn tne oppressor, ana
defy tho tyrant a little earlier thac all thought was
prudent and necessarj? AU must admit that their
wrongs were grievous and hard to be borne, and
that they had cause for revolt. Wo had like cause,
but we had more faith in the wrongdoer, and were
willing to remonstrate, and wait for tho "sober
second thought" of the North, when we hoped for
instieo. But our faith was ill-founded, and our
hone delusive. We have been flattered and cajoled
until like Maryland and Missouri, wc are almost in
the toils of the enemy. A little more delay and
hesitation, and a military despotism will be estab
lished -over us. I say then to arms, and resist to
the last erinmiiy. The united South cannot be vub
daed. Every motive of self-preservation invokes us
to union in the Koutn.
Tub Removal or the Capital. The Capital, we
learn. Is to be removed. On yesterday a large ma
jority of the Provisional Congress voted to no so.
und from what wo can learn n win not ue iuhi; ue
tore the Canital of the Confederate States is re
moved to Richmond. Public necessity a desire to
do everything looking towaids the expansion and
progression of a young but great Confederacy, has
prompted the distinguished and patriotic mea who
f-nmnnse our Congress to take this Btep. While we
-rooTet it. we certainly ha?c no fault to find with
those who we know have been actuated by the
purest, the most patriotic, and the most disinterested
motives. Zfonigomtry Confidetaiion, May 21.

British vessel has already moved off from, the port
of Charleston, while another run tho blockade. The

it did not prevent the exportation of cotton from the

not probably relax tho blocade. it remains to bo

await the result of the struggle, or interpose in sorao
form, amicably or otherwise, for an adjustment be

One of tbo consequences ot the war 13 that the
carrying trade between Europe and America will be
transferred from American to neutral bottoms, to
the great prejudice of northern navigating inter
ests.
It is a grave question whether we shall be able to
keep this war, as a little private matter ,at home. The
commercial and industrial interests of some of tho
principal European nations will bo much prejudiced
by it, and, besides, ma rights ot merchants either
on the seas or in belligerent ports are likely to be
miured in war. It is extremely difficult for belliger
erents to ascertain, with certainty, what ships and
cargea on the ocean or found in belligerent ports,
belonir to enemies and what to merchants. Wrongs
are committed and abuses occur which produce
national irritation, and frequently merchants be
come thus involved in the conflict This was the
case of the United States in 1812. We went to war
in behalf xt "free trade and sailors' rights." which
the belligerent parties had grossly outraged.
Possibly the lederal government may reopen tbo
