From the Paris, Tenn., Intelligencer, 27th.
Already the Memphis Avalanche and
other Conservative journals in the State
have given well-written sketches of the'
public services and political antecedents
of fitter gentleman.' His record is, far may
be familiar to all, and in the leading acts
and events of his life, as with most states
men, may he found the true interpretation
of his character and principles.
I! ii I there ia an unwritten .history, made
up of minuter and more personal eventa
which do not appear in Legislative
journals and published speeches, and with
which of course the public oannot be pre
Minted (o 1m familiar, that tu Ovrllier. if
Mvx-niUIe, to d,evef..f- hr real char;.. er ml
to present the actual man.
The writer, who is familiar with Wli
the written anil unwritten history of Mr.
Etheridge, otrera to the reader this brief
sketch, fithout the coloring of personal
euloginm or partisan panegyric.
He first entered public life as Clerk of
theTennesjiee House of Representatives in
1843. The next session he represented
Weakley ootinty in the lower house. Al
though a Whig, he defeated his Democratic
opponent, where the usual majority was
From that time until 1853 he was exten
sively engaged in the practice of the law,
in which he won fair distinction and gen
eral success, although competing with a bar
among whom numbered some of the ablest
and most learned of that honorablo
profession. Tn 1853 he was elected with
out opposition to the House of Representa
tives ,in the United States Congress. 'Twas
during that term that the celebrated Kansas-Nebraska
hill wa3 introduced and
Mr. Etheridge was the chief of tho eight
Southern Representatives who recorded
their votes in opposition to that measure,
which tho great mass of the Southern peo
ple were taught to regard as so just and
beneficial, and upon which they looked
with so much favor.
In 1855 he was opposed by Mr. Freeman,
a gentleman of no ordinary talents and
acquirements, who severely arraigned him
before the people of the district, but he
was triumphantly returned. Of the eight
Southern Representatives who opposed this
measure, so immensely popular at that time
in the South, Mr. Etheridge was the only
pone re-elected all the rest were eitiier de
feated or voluntarily retited before the in
dignant frowns of their Southern conslitft-
Ihi t Mr. Etheridge believed this hill to
be a Pandora's box for the South, and he
braved the fierce tide of popular resent
ment, and with a moral courage that knew
no fear a matchless eloquence, and with
ceaseless energy and untiring iudimtry he
succeeded where all others failed. Very
inat-y supported him for re-eleclion who
differed with him, bill they believed him to
bo controlled by the deepest convictions of
right, and gave him credit for sincerity and
hi 1S"7, the Congressional district had
been changed under the new apportion
ment, and there was a Democratic majority
of a few hundred, After an animated can
vassj ho was defeated by Colonel J. I), i(J.
Atkins obtaining a small majority.
In 1859, Mr. Ktheridge, defeated hh for
mer successful opponent in a'contest unsur
passed in Tennessee for warmth and
During .nil these campaigns, Mr. Ether
idge did not retreat from his record, but
Inildly and eloquently defended it, and hail
the proud satisfaction to receive the rein
dorsement by the constituency of his course
as their Representative.
It was itnring the thirty-fourth Con
gress that he offered a resolution strongly
condemnatory of Ihe revival of the Afri
can slave trade, and which passed the
House of Representatives by a large ma
jority, ror that he was greatly compli
mented by the Kepublican party, just, then
organizing. That resolution was held up
by his opponents North and South, in Con
gress and on the hustings, and by the press,
as conclusive proof of his opposition to the
institution of slavery as nn abstract propo
sition. Everywhere he answered his pro-slavery
assailants with defiance, fearlessly defend
ing the resolution, and denouncing the bar
barities of the " middle passage,'' nml the
immorality and criminal cupidity of the
Ymlttf, which prompted the original al
duction and enslavement of the unfortunate
and oppressed African.
This position, taken in connection with
his opposition to the Kansas-Nebraska bill,
in which he avowed himself in his can
vass as the determined enemy of the exten
sion of slavery to any more territories,
rendered him a great favorite with the anti
slavery party everywhere. Mr: Etheridge
was the first freesoilcr in Tennessee.
His Tjhole course before the war tended
to the restriction and extinction of slavery.
He ma' be said to laVc been the first
great breakwater which rose up in the
South to stay the surging tide of pro-slavery
extension. In that light lie is the pioneer
anti-slavery man in the State, nnd that too
at a time when there was no one to help,
not even Rrownlow, for he was then de
nouncing Ethciidgcas a Black Republican,
and debating with Pryne, and writing
books to prove African slavery on the
American continent to be a "divine insti
tution," and a perpetual one.
We have often heard Mr. Etheridge
pssert on the etump that there were' only
three hundred and fifty thousand people
out of eight millions in the Southern States,
who were personally interested in slavery,
and that their interests should not be
allowed to stand in the way of all other
Times without number have we heard
him declare that he would surrender the
institution of Matrry to sat the Union.
The drift and animus of his speeches
and positions on the stump tended to
Weaken the bonds of slavery.
This wan at a time it must be home in
mind when it required loth moral and
physical courage in a high degree to as
sume mtch ositions and defend them, as
he always did, unflinchingly. It was at a
time, too, when no one expected soon tho
emancipation of the race, and certainly itW
not suppose that there was any room for
selMi xpcc!thvrts of aggranditemenl.
Mr. Etheridge always comhatted Ihe
dogma of transplanting lavary .by hot-bell'
experiment, and for political pfupows.
He argued that slavery ia Virginia,
Kentnck, Missouri, Maryland and Ten
tiitwM, would not long continue, hut would
ield to inevitable causes, and finally sink
in libera! ami gradual aruandrmtion He
did not believe, with Brownlow, that it was
to last fttrft! .
He ridiculed with mrrcile merity the
idea f oxteu.ieti and i1misw(.
He .wtemlisl that there was not enough

that while slave lalor was not profitable in
the ltorder Slates ah jret labor, it would

Mr. EtherluVe was 'a member of Congress
from this district at the breaking out of
the late war. lietng an unconditional
Union man, of course he did everything in
his power to prevent secession and disunion.
Tennessee having elected no Representa--

of hi devotion lo the Union and the con
stitution. In lore of the one and thiabated
support of the ether he had never fajtered.
When manj' who are now vociferous in
their denunciations of his manly magnanim
ily to a fallen foe, and his respect for con
stitutional liberty, were bending before the
storm of secession which swept the State
in 1801 like a hurricane, he stood unmoved
by the flag of the Union.
When Sfokcs was writing Duncan letters,
applauding the patriot Davis and menacing
the tyrant Lincoln ; when Brownlow hira
.sclf averred that it was useless for one man
jto oppoiv. tlia Confederacy ; and hut for the
.difMirtn 'f lho"e polificLins, whose
patriotism was Mihordiuate to the selfish
love of place, in taunting him with his
eleventh hour conversion, and hut for which
we don't doubt he would have given in his
adherence to the Confederate movement ;
Etheridge, unseduced by flattery and nn
awed by- fear, took his stand by Ihe aide of
Andrew Johnson, and braved everything
for the cause of the Union. No man in
Tennessee has a belter Union record few
of the public men can boast 'so good a one.

We subjoin extracts from lhe "speech of
A. J. Fletcher, Secretary of State, and
acting Governor of Tennessee, in the absence
of Brownlow, delivered to the Radical
meeting at the capHol on, Saturday last,
and as reported in the Press and Times of
yesterday, 29th. It i3 an authoritative ex
position of the purposes of the autoqratic
leaders of Radicalism in-this State, in the
present campaign :
But I have, a far more important matter
to speak of. Addfessing'myself ' lo white
as well as black. I advise you to so act as
to secure harmony in the Union ranks
guard against discord and division keep
your ranks closed up and move in serried
column. Not so much for the sake of the
party, but because we are on the eve of
troubles of a far more r.erioua character
than mere political j strife.. The accident of
ipsition hasWyen fo me a standpoint from
winch I am better able to anticipate events
than most of yon are. I say this, not boast
jngly, but because my dailv duties are such
as to enable me to oompreliend the situa
tion with greater facility than others differ
ently situated. 1 say then with sorrow,
hut not with diemay, that we are on the
eve of serious trouble probably of asocial
and financial disaster possibly of bloody
collisions. The Conservatives have selected
a candidate for Governor for the purpose of
bringing on this state of things. And like
all othertTcontemplating crime, they Jiave
chosen the instrument riest adapted to a
sure execution of their purposes. They
have selected a candidate who proclaims
that you have no State government, hnt
av6id and'hogus concern which' no- niarv
ifc l&mnd to obey. ' He holds and
proclaims that .the present Legislature is
an imposition, and that no man 'is bound
to obey tho laws of its authority. He holds'
that the present'judiciary has no authority,
and that its decisions are all nullities. lie
declares that the constitution of Tennessee
has never been amended, and that conse
quently the slaves are not free. Such were
his declarations in his la-d reported
speech a speech which he lias never re
canted, and which he will scorn to recant,
unless it be to cheat the colored man out of
his vote. In that speech, made at Trenton
after the people at the ballot-box had
amended tho constitution so as to abolish
slavery ; after your Legislature had met and
so declared ; after they had passed their
laws and adjourned, and gone to their
homes in that speech, nearly two years
after Mr. Lincoln's proclamation abolishing
slavery, he declared that the slaveholders
whom he was addressing had aa good a
title to their slaves as they had before the
war. He advised them to reduce their ne
groes hack to slavery by force, and toshoot
down any white man who might inform the
negroes they were free. For, thati ho was
arrested, and before a court-martial haugh
tily pleaded guilty. Besides, it is well'
known at Washington, and at his home,
that he constantly inculcated the right arid
tho duty of the people to overthrow the
present State government by force. Only
last August, Etheridge and Baxter, and
others, projected and advocated a Slate rev
olution, and actually broke ground on the
stump in favor of the scheme. Etheridge
left Washington in August last, declaring
his purpose to take the stump and urge the
overthrow of the State government by
force. In short, Etheridge hasdonenothing
but advocate violence from the first dawn
of the "present State government down
to the present time. By his nomination
his party have thrown down the gage of
revolution. I have said that he was nom
inated for this purpose. I am authorized
to say so from the fact that tho leaders of
the convention declared, in an honr after
convention adjourned, that they did not
expect to elect and had not selected him
for that purpose. I have said this instru
ment of f edition and violence was well chosen,
and so 1 repeat.
Few men in America have greater power
to influence the bad passions of bad men
than Emerson Etheridge. Reason Is not
his forte. To prudence and discretion he
is a stranger. Malignant denunciation,
bitter reproaches, inflammatory harangues,
these are his favorite and only weapons.1
Now, this is the sort of man the-ConservajJ
lives have chosen to canvass the State.
Wherever ho goes he will address his ap
peals to the disfranchised class. The un
subjugated will be out to hear him the
ox-guerrilla will be out to hear that class '
of men whq are hardly restrained now
from violence will listen to his frantic dis
conrecs. Wherever he goes ha will be fol
lowed and attended by violence. This is
indeed to be his buine.ss, his mission.
These outbreaks, which arc inevitable, trill
fare foT met and put Jotm, and 'Vy will be
met and put doun. Does any man suppose
that Brownlow will stand idle and see tne
of violence and sedition burning and
s'priadrng? j No slr,1twilljbeihis dnty td
illltllllil nil .iiir n in ii i vi
Hint Ac hi? ttntbe Jott U do it. Now this is
the trouble I hare-' alluded tons only a few
weeks ahead of u. I am no ahrmist, for
I am not in the least alarmed. Sedition
will meet its fate, and Governor Brownlow
will be elected by 30,000 or 10.000 ma

CabthaoevTexx,, April 2Gfb, 1867. A
day has been suggested for the assemblage of
the Conservative .convention in this, the
third Congressional district; of the State.
(Upon that contention will devolve the
duty of nominating la.candidate for the
fortieth CongresR' lly name has been
kihdly .mentioned in connection- with the.
nomiuation through the public press -and
otherwise. My silence longer worild be
construed as a desire on my part do secure
said nomination. I regard it as my duty
to my political friends, to other aspirants
for the position named, as well as to the
Conservative party of the district, at once,
and publiclv, to decline the candidacy for
Congress.' "' " ' "
My declension is based alone upon pri
vate considerations. My pecuniary Inter
ests, much injured during the late war, I am
seeking assiduously to restore. To abandon
them now, fo engage (in politics, would be
ruinous to me. To do so now is a sacrifice
I cannot consistently make in justice lo
my family and an aged mother dependent
upon my individual exertion. .
My interest and r.eal in tho success of
the great nd .fund.uaenttl iwinciple nf
American liberty for which the Conserva
tive party of the country is struggling, are
not, and will not be, abated, under any
circumstances. For the triumph of those
principles I shall zealously labor in the
future as I have done in the past. What
my efforts have been, my acts, votes and
speeches sufficiently attest".
The dominancy of the few over the
many the minority over the majority
I will labor to resist with all the influ
ence I may possess or be able to
wield, when such domination is
sought to be enforced, in times of profound
peace, through military force, and for the.
purpose alone of subserving selfish and
corrupt partizan objects. Such objects, as
well as the means which have been devised
for their achievement, are incompatible
with the plainest dictates of an elevated
statesmanship, aside from all considerations
of justice, patriotism and constitutional
The negro is a free man-made so by the
war: He should be clothed with the rights
and privileges of an American citizen just
as rapidly as he demonstrates his capacity
to the exercise of them for the welfare of
the repnblic. This should be done, not as
a party expedient, but as an investment
consequent on his new status, as a means of
self-protection, and as a correlative of the
obligations of alfegiance, and as a fundamen
tal and eternal right.
And to the white man I would accord the
same measure of justice. I would at once
clothe him anew with the robes of citizen
ship, whatever may (have been his errors of
thought and action in the past. Dis
franchisement, except for crimes of" which
the accused has been duly convicted, in ac
cordance with the constitution and laws, is
the very soul of despotism, and of despotism
Of the most nefarious character. That an
American, in the broad sunlight, of the
nineteenth century, should advocate a, doc
trine so monstrous, is calculated to sliako
confidence in the foundation principle of
all free governments that 'man is capable. of
self -government. But the years of intellec
tual and moral advancement in store for
us as a republic, will consign, the
monstrosity as well as the idemo
ries of ils advocates to the shades
of a loathed oblivion. It and they will
be assigned in the temple of history to that
region where slumber the horrors of the
French revolution and the Spanish in

Correspondence Union and Dispatch).
Swung Hill, .April 29th. The' 27th
was the day appointed for Joe WilliatnB to
"address his colored friends at this place.
The colored people came in from all parts,
of tho country by crowds. They seemed '
evidently tired pf the calumnies and mis
representations of loyal leacues. and mani
fested. some eagerness to hea&eome whole
some Conservative doctrine. For good
reasons assigned Williams did not' speak.
At'the request of the citizens Dr. A. &
White consented to address the crowd,
nis speech was sensible and to the point.
He showed the Conservative whites were
better friends to the colored race than the
Radicals possibly could be. The Radical
idea of confiscating lands in this State he
declared was a fallacy. He hoped his
colored friends would not be deluded that
it was a bait held out by designing men for
the retention of power and thesnoils of office.
The Doctor epokatsome length, and was j
Mr3oIih Bond was then balled for, He
replied that he had not expected to speak,
and only did so in answer to their icalls.
He was not, and never expected to be, a
politician ; yet he did look with feel
ings of the deepest interest on the agita
tion of the issues now before the country
an agitation, important alike to' the
friends of liberty and the fawning parasites
of power issues whose settlement must
decide whether the heritage of our fathers
will be squandered and the fair form
of, liberty be banished from the land
forever. Mr. Bond said there were but
two parties in Tennessee, Radical and Con
servative. The only question for the
colored voter to decide is that of . interest.
iThelr interest, ho thought, is identified
'with the Conservative party. He then read
tne piatiorm adopted by the convention at
Nashville, commenting at some length on
each one of its provisions. Are not these
principles, he asked, brnadfenough to cover
all the blacks desired. Here Mr. Bond
drew a graphic comparison between the
Conservative and Radical organization,
giving the latter the full benefit of the
present system of taxation, and" the selfish
motives that induced the enfranchisement,
of the negro. He declared, in conclusion,
that the two races must live together unlike
the patriarchs of old, whoe great posses
sions forced t hum to part. Our sulqtance
.will not- pay the expense of a separation.
Since we must lire together, for (he peace
and harmony of the country let us nnite
upon a platform of principles that will
best secure "equal and exact justice to all."
The tone and candor of these remarkn had
their weight and inrlnence. A more order
ly; crowd I have, neyer seen. R-idicalism

New Yokk, Ajril 29. The Times' spe
cial says : The workings of the Treasury
ior wie iuuiiiu jusi closing win snowanotlier
large reduction of the national debt.. In
the next statement Secretary McCulloch
hopes to reduce the total debt to about
twenly-five hundred millions, at which
point he believes it must remain stationary
so long as the present rate of government
income and expenses is maintained. The
Indian war will draw very largely on the
national resources this summer, and' while
the course of the Treasurer ia clear and easy,
the reduction of the national debt must
Foon be suspended, for a time at least.
There has been a very strong impression
prevailing in this city, for the past few
days, that Gen. Rousseau, who is here
awaiting orders, would be sent to New Or
leans to serpereedc General Sheridan. -.
The report has been telegraphed Soul h,
but 1 am able to state, on the be-jt authority,
that no officer in the South holds his com
mand by so certain a tenure as General
Sheridan, and General Rousseau does not
desire a command in the South, but hopes
to be assigned to the Department of the Co
lumbia, which will give him a very desira
ble position on the Pacific coast.
The following is General Sheridan's or
der relieving one of the aids of the New
Orleans chief of police, for improper inter
ference with the registration : J. W. Boy
Ian, aid to the chief of police, having on the
loth inst., intimidated freedmen by taking
'false representations, thereby obstructing
the law by causing them to leave the vicini
ty of t,he registration officer of this city, is
hereby discharged from the police force of
the city of New1 Orleans, from 12 o'clock
Governor Halm's effort to induce Gen.
Grant to authorize General Sheridan to set
aside the recent election of the Mississippi
railroad directiors, has not been successful.
General Grant declines to interfere, and
refers the applicanUo the President, bo
Beauregard and his associates still hold
control of the road.
The Herald's special says the parties
who are urging an injunction against the
reconstruction law express great confidence
in their success.
The Times' special says a circular, signed
by fifty of the leading" manufacturers of
New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburg and
Boston, among whom are Peter Cooper,
John Jewett & Sons, and others, of New
York ; Wm. Sellers & Co., Ben. Bullock
& Sons, and others, of Philadelphia ; Cun
ninghau & Isom, and others, of Pitlsburg,
and E. B. Ward, of Detroit, with others,
has been issued calling a conference of the
manufacturing interests of the country, to
meet at the Astor House, New York, on
the Sth of May, to deliberate upon thsjpres
cnt condition aud prospects of the material
interests of American industry, and to de
cide upon a method of arousing public at
tention to this subject. The success which
has. .attended the cflurt t;L thtufree trade
league in effecting public sentiment by the
wide spread distribution of popular docu
ments through the' coun'fry, is cited by the
call, as, demonstrating the necessity of
adopting some means equally efficient td
contract the evil it is alleged to be working.
This is the first note bf ihe' coming great
struggle for yet higher duties.
The Herald's Richmond special saya:

Thft Herald's special .says:. , A petition
has been gotten up in Huntsville, Alabama
for the 'rein Aval bt 'the Judge of Probate and
the Sheriff of Madison county, and the
Mayor of Huntsville, and fuipplant them
with men of Radical stripe. Tt is said,
however, that the post commandant, Major
O. C. C. Lester, disapproved the object of
the petitioners, because be knew of nothing
to justify the action asked for, and that
General Sprague declined to act unless the
charges of official malfeasance or misfeas-
