that oity to demand a right to reply to
him. Nothing could be more agreeable
to Mr. Ktberidge. He made his spoecb
Stokes replied without limit of time and
Etheridgc rejoined. Tlio ropert of this

agreed upon as tlio time. Ethoridge was
ill, and reached tlio place sometime after
Stokes opened. The result of this bout
we give this morning. If, on Friday,
Etheridge gave him a defeat, on Saturday
lie utterly crushed the Eadical champion.
During Ethoridge's speech, Stokes him
nelf got sick and retired, but liko the

to become the voluntary vritnoss of bis

On this occasion Cut. Stokes opened. Mr.

col. stokes' speech.
Mr. Stokes was pleased to see such a
lari'e assemblage: lie asked patient atten
tioti and he promised not to speak long.
Air. Jlheri(ige was doubtless exhausted
and he himself was not in a very eood fix,
He asked the right of speech due to an
American citizen. He referred to side re
marks (?) made during the day (Saturday,)
but said he considered it his right to sneak.
He said lie did not expect Mr. Etheridge
lo.maKe a second speecn on F riday, and
as there was no opportunity then to reply
he asked it now. tie was not learned lost
hts father when three years old and had
made himself. Mr. E. had made some
sarcastic remarks about his ignorance, but
Mr. E. well knew that he (the speaker) was
not a lawyer, was only a farmer, who had
been elevated to office by his people. He
would do no wrong to Mr. E. in his
aWnce. If lie did so, he would take it back
cheerfully. He wanted to get himself right.
Mr. E. had alluded to the Duncan letter.
I wrote it on the 10th of May, and on the
8th of June, 1SC1, the vote affecting the
future of the Stale was taken. I said the
letter was false. I was not allowed to ex
plain. I heard able lawyers say it was un
constitutional tor Air. .Lincoln to oall out
seventy-five thousand men. I thought so,
Mr. E. and able lawyers say it is not so. and
I was perhaps wrong. I never continue in a
wrong if I know it. I wrote the letter on
May 8th, and then on the 11th the news
came of the linal action, and I said, in
presence of forty persons, that I took my
stand with the bederal government.
Mr. S. detailed the numerous persons
who had co-operated with him on the Union
side. He detailed his services on the
stump, when surrounded by Rebel soldiers,
his repudiation ofthe Duncan letter, which
was used in the canvass then when the vote
was taken for separation, and when Eth
eridge was chased inside the lines.
East Tennessee was the great breakwater
between the North and South. The troops
urni raiseii were niaie troops, and after
wards turned over to the Confederate. I
never advised any to go to Virginia.
When Lincoln had issued his proclama
tion, Mr. Etheridge turned his back on the
Union and it went to the country that
Lincoln was wrong. This was giving aid
and comfort, I think, and a great deal of it.
Mr. E. was elected Secretary of the
House by the Republican party; and after

Mr. Etheridge would have said it was a

was no man who did not get votes. I
voted for them all. My friends, twenty
thousand of them, voted for Hall, McNair,
and the rest of them. He may eay that in
some counties no votes were given. In
those counties no election could be held.
He read the decision ofthe big Generals
who decided his case at the court martial.
I hope the papers will publish the names
of the officers of that court when I get
them in a few days. I expect to sustain

I did support Johnon after he vetoed the
amendments to the freedmen's bill. I
thought that not needed. I came to Nash
ville when Johnson was orgsniiing the
S resent State government. The committee
idn't ask me to sneak. The President
vetoed the freedinen s bill on the 22d of
February, and at night I made what was
called by Union men a good speech. I
went to Connecticut and spoke, and the
people elected Hawley. The President
had said it was a lie that tie had switched
off from the Republican party. When I
found he had done so 1 let linn go, and my
friend Etheridge took him up. He indor
ses him in his platform. He wrote a letter;
1 wish I had it, to ask him if he wrote the
truth about Johnson and Lincoln in it.
There are letters bcnide the Duncan letter.
Mr. Etheridge denounced the Freedmen's
Bureau as worthless. It didn't feed the
poor whites. When established, was it not
to feed the whites and blacks 7 According
to Howard's report, two-thirds whites and
one-third blacks were fed by it. It fed
the poor whose husbands or other relations
were in one or the other army. This was
magnanimous in Congress to feed poor wo
men and children. If elected, will he ad
vise in his message that Congress blot out
the Freedmen's Burean and civil rights

Laughter. He says we will take away
the ballot if the blacks don't vote right;
but I say to every one, go to the poll and
vote independently. We only wisli to pre

instincts of a horse and know their friends.
I say if they want to vole the Conservative
ticket, let them do it.
He says the Conservatives in the Legis
lature voted for equal rights and universal
suffrage. When they could get all why not
vote for half. Why not vote for suffrage
to the blacks.
I have sold negroes to pay my honest
debts. I waanot a negro trader. Laughter.
Mr. E. says he never sold any. He liked

siVs pointing to Stokes.
The points of the Duncan letter urging
aid to the rebellion were fully stated. Mr.
Stokes says Hall and McNair got votes.
He voted for them. I told yon most of
theiellows in the Legislature who have de
spoiled the State of its liberties were Reb
els, and voted for them, but I did not know
he voted for them. I said they didn't get
votes in the counties in which ihey lived,
and some of them didn't live in the State.
That was exactly true. He says he saw the
official record of my military trial. Didn't
you see it?
Air. Stokes I read it yesterday.
Mr. Etheridge: I'll bet von five hun
dred dollars you didn't hear it.
Mr. Etheridge then detailed the facts.
The record is in the official archives in
Washington. I have here the next best
evidence. The court did take jurisdiction
and try the case for many days. Every
thing I said about the case was the exact
truth. I read the plea. Mr. Stokes didn't
understand it. A man who has been study
ing military tactics, on both sides, hasn't
time to do much else. I plead not guilty
to all the charges but that of writing the
letter, and the court said I did right. Mr.'
Stokes says he is not educated. He need
not have told it. lie is, however, the Ju
nius who writes ably on both sides of a
great war. There are others of the same
sort men who marched under Logwood
ana now under Logwood. ahow me an
apostate Rebel, the refuse of the Rebel
camp, and I will show you a Radical.
llo says Andrew Johnson is the author
of this State government. Now, Andrew
Johnson asks the State to give equal rights
to all men. I would feel myself unfit for re
spectable society if I should propose as the
xiauicai leauers uo 10 join wiin tne mack
to put down and degrade such an assembly
as this. He says if equal rights were given
to all, I would be beaten by General For
rest. Well, I would not be the only mar,
Union or Confederate, whom he has beaten.
If he did it would be the voice of the peo
ple. This is what these Radical leaders
r. They know that the scum of civil
war would sink into oblivion. General
Forrest would not wish to deprive the
meanest Radical of the right to Tote.
Air. Lthendge went on, and said Mr.
Stokes complained that he conldn't speak
at rtashviHe. Ihey couldn't trust him
Eerhaps. That Duncan letter might have
een read. He says when he let Johnson
go I took him up. I wrote a letter elabor
ately urging his (Stokes') admission to
Congrre. 1 would take Stokes up if he
would repent, and not seek to degrade his
own race. M r. Etheridge went on remark
ing that every Radical leader went up
North pleading poverty, and begging and
telling that a Union man couldn't live in
Tennessee, and then running back to Ten
nessee with the money to their wives to
count it. They ain't afraid then. I heard
my friend did this. I have never written
a Duncan letter. I have made a hundred
speeches for the Unian cause. He says I
had to leave. I could have stayed if had
written a Duncan letter.
He says I denounced the Freedmen's
Bureau becau-e it didn't take care of the
poor. I said it didn't take care of the
poor Irish and German emigrants. I said,
and say now, it is a political machine. The
case of Lawrence and Trimble shows this.
It is a political machine. Johnson said so,
and vetoed it, because it had support for a
year in advance, after which the blacks
might take care of themselves.
He asks will 1, if elected, in my message,
recommend the abolition of the Ireedmen's
Bureau and the civil rights bill. Don't
he know that that is the business of the
President, not of the Governor, who has
nothing to do with it. As to the giving the
rights of citizenship to the colored people,
I stand on the platform framed by men a
thousand times superior to the author of
tbt Duncan letter. I stand with Campbell,
who snatched him as a brand frqm th
burning out of rebellion, and now he
(Stokes) turns his poisonous breath on his
benefactor and friend. Stokes says he don't
know my position. I said yesterday that
the colored people were free by law and in
fact, and I have no friend who could or
would enslave them, and I am for giving
them all the rights that are logically
corrolaries of freedom.
Slavery was at one time universal. Rome
had in the Augustan age more than ten
million white slaves. My ancestors (Sax
ons) were serfs and Blaves. Slavery wilted
away before the printing press, that has
been the motive power in all moral and re
ligious enterprises. The speaker made an
eloquent eulogium on education and human
progress. He showed how slavery had
gradually faded out No country made
free has ever again been made a slave State.
We want white men as good as blacks. If
a black man don't want whites to have the
same rights he has, then he has the heart
ot a spaniel and the soul of a slave.
He asks, why not hire jurors to work on
juries? We don't hire jurors. You may
hire them to vote; not an honest one, how
ever. The speaker adverted in severe
terms to the habit of taking oaths and not
valuing them more than the Duncan letter.
He says the Tennessee Legislature is in
advance. Advance of what? In grosser
and meaner tyranny than has existed for
three hundred years when the rights of
all men are in the hands of imbecile ma
lignity? When men have to go to rene
gade Rebels and ask theprivilegeof voting
against the master tyrants? When Ten
nessee advances it will be against you, and
it would make the heart of your master
tremble. Tremendous applause.
He showed that in England the Liberals
were extending the franchise: but Wm.
Stokes was more advanced than John
Bright. Here, advance is to deprive old
and noble, honored men, distinguished ju
rists, of the elective franchise. The speak
er, in beautiful language, sketched the de
privation ot a Union man of his rights,
and the shameful progress made by the
Brownlow faction. Thi3 day of tyranny,
as remorseless as ever existed, is called
He asks why the Conservatives didn't
enfranchise the colored man. Every Con
servative voted to give the franchise to
every man. Is there a black man so mean
as to ask the ballot for himself and not give
it to him
Mr. Etheridge said he had not been
elected to office by the Republicans. Some
respectable ones voted for him, but it was
Kentucky members who nominated him.
He was not a slave on the account of Re
publicans voting for him. He was inde
pendent. He poured shot on those who
were liebels and now prostituted their
dupes, and who would vote against him
now. The Rebels were never so mean as
the little sneaking despotism that has sto
len away the liberties of their people. Hon
orable Kebels and honorable discharged
Federal soldiers were for him.
Mr. Stokes explained how it came that
Mr. Wallace was not allowed to reply to
him at Bartlett. He wanted to know if
Mr. Etheridge would divide the time
with him throughout the canvass,
two hours each, and thirty minutes to
reply. Mr. Etheridge said he would ac
cept and would give Stokes SI00 if he
would go all through with him. Stokes
accepted, and the shook hands amid tre
mendous applause. Mr. Etheridge made
announcements, then resuming his course
said he was in fellowship with Federal Gen
erals, whom he named ; more than thi", he
was in fellowship with the great principles
ot constitutional liberty. He was tor equal
rights to all, and exclusive privileges to
none. Stokes could not say thip. It was
Brownlow whosaid that theRebelsabolished
slavery. Stokes saysit. I say it was the
war. Ho calls people eeditionists becansc
they won't make him king. At this mo
ment it was announced that it was twelve
o'clock, and Mr. Etheridge declined to
speak longer, though preased by the shouts
Our meagre sketch cannot do justice to
the eloquence and logic, the patriotic ap
peals and cogent reasoning that resulted in
the overwhelming defeat of-the Brownlow
orator. Longer visages than the Brownlow
Radicals had as they came out of the meet
ing, have not been seen at a funeral lately.
THE DUTY Or REGISTKKLNG.
We have before urged upon Conserva
tive voters the importance of obtaining
certificates of registration. The duty is
imperative upon every one, of whatever
age or condition, who falls within the
provisions ofthe law. The neglect or re
fusal to qualify and vote is wholly inex
cusable nay in its far-reaching conse
quences it is more, it is a crime against
the race, it is a repudiation of the just
claim which posterity has on every good
man, it is infidelity to the obligations of
citizenship. We'can well apprecinte the
repugnance felt to the ordeal of the
partisan inquisition which they are made
to undergo. It is humiliating and offen
sive to the manly instincts of freemen to
submit to such exactions, accompanied,
as it doubtless will be, at many points,
with the " insolence of office ;" but
the State must be delivered, and
it is better to endure for a time
these things, than to fold our hands
in passive submission, and permit
the ferocious tyranny of Brownlowism to
fasten itself upon us for another two
years, and forge the fetters of an indefi-
nits bondage. The chivalric nnd invinci
ble leader of the Conservative party is in
the field dealing titanic blows. All over
the State, for every position to be filled in
the August election, good and true men
are being named as candidates, and en
tering upon the canvass with zeal and
ardor. No matter with what efficiency
they may work, their labor will be fruit
less, if by the indifference of prominent
men in each community the mass of Con
servative voters should fail to bo stimu
lated to qualify themselves for voting.
It should be done promptly; and every
man should see that his friends do like
wise, and assist them by every legiti
mate means in asserting their rights before
the commissioners. The men of educa
tion, property and influence, whether they
be enfranchised or not, should spare
either time nor expense in extending
every proper facility to their poorer neigh- ,
bors. The interests involved in this
struggle transcend in importance any
mero political contest that any of us huTe
ever seen. All that is attractive in civil
or political liberty, all that is valuable in
government designed to give protection to
life, liberty and tlio pursuit of happiness,
is bound up in it To suffer the presett
misrule to continue through apathy, de
spondency, or an aversion to contact with
the odious system by which it seeks to
sustain itself, will inflict not only an in
delible stigma upon the State, bat com
plete the rain of its material interests,
and leave its native people ns bankrupt
in honest fame as they will be in nbiliry to
meet the mountain of debt whioh i.s bei'sg
piled on them.
