l&edtem Andrew Johnson, Prmidbit of the '
.United Stalet: In applying to your Excel

any disclosure concerning the plotting" of
your enemies against you, which coulu be
regarded as an inducement for granting my
application. I instructed my wife, in pre
senting the petition, to refer to the conspi -Jracy
of As.hley & Cq so far only as might

within you toward me by the newspaper
reports; that I had engaged to assist your
oneniles in their nefarious designs, I adopt

tified by Judge Holt, the non. Mr. Kiddle,
and Mr. Ashley, would in vour view and
judgement, render me deseiying Executive.

should come to expose the atrocious plot of
Ashley Co., the Radicals would not be in
a position or'dile to charge; mewith doing
so in consideration of apard8n; brlhlf the
.President had pardoned me on condition
of my implicating his enemies in an infa
mous conspiracy.
i Prom the moment I was forced into as
sociation with these traitors and conspira
tors, I determined, as soon as I ehould be
released, to place in the hands of your Ex
cellency, orjlay before the public a com"
plete-exposure ot their diabolical designs
and most astoundinc proceedings. This. 1

how Ashley, first through his man Fri
day, Matchett, and afterward in person,
managed to make known to me his wishes,
aims, nnd purposes, and enlist me as far
as a forced nromise would go in his en
terprise. 1 shall, therefore, only advert
here to some things which have been said
and done by the conspirators, which are
susceptible of hoing proved against them
by the most irreiragabie evidence.
After obtaining ray promise to render
all the assistance in my power, Mr. Ashley
explained to me the kind of evidence he
thought it most advisable to present against
you. (I must bo very brief. I He thought
it would be very plausible to prove:

were revised and corrected by Mr. Ashley,
and tbey were assured by him that in case it
should be determined to examine them be-.
fore the committee, they should be "splen-
ididly rewarded."
As,!le alB,. discoursed to them on the
proposed to pursue -to make certain of the
impeachment of the President. He de-
clarel that you were a traitor to your party
and country, etc, etc ; that there was no
doubt of your complicity in the assassina
tion conspiracy ; but that the evidence was
in the hands of your friends, and could not
all be got at ; Tthat enough, however, had
been secured to satisfy most reasonable
men of his guilt, but that, in order to sat
isfy the most exacting, the statements of
these persons before the committee would
be requisite; that the cud fully justified
the means, and that every man ivho con?
trfbuted in this way to the impeachment of
the President would deserve well of the
country, and that he (Ashley; would see
them rewarded ten-lold when your succes
sor should come into power.
i&nbsequently, the parties were presented
to, Butler, and, after being inspected and
passed by him, were introduced by him
add Ashley to several Radical members of
the House, who, it was understood, had
hitherto doubted the existence ot evidence
implicating yon in tiie assassination con
spiracy, and who informally interrogated
them as to the matters upon which they
had been instructed, A.J
iJutler desired to have taken the deposi
tions of these men at the time, but I would
not consent to its being done until I should
be released, as at first agreed.
'lhese facw can be proved by these three
persons, and also by my wife, whose char
acter for truth aiid veracity is not inferior
to'Mr. Ashley's: and I shall take pleasure,
if at liberty, in producing them before any
committee or tribunal tor the impeachment
of the impeachers.
15 ut the evidence of this conspiracy does
not depend entirely upon oral proof. The
letters from Ashley, herewith enclosed, in
themselves speak volumes. What state
ment B from me could he have wanted,
and for' what purpose? Anything it was
in my power to state to him could have
been stated to him orally a dozen times
during his previous visits to me.
Uhe statement he wanted was this, anu
for this purpose: There were many prom
inent Radicals, and especially among his
own consumems, .wno'were lukewarm on
the subject of impeachment; who were not
prepared to believe thatjyou were privy to
the murder of Lincoln, arid whose co-oper
ation was greatly needed. Ashley, there

There is another note from Ashley en
closed, worthy of Attention. It is in pencil,
and was written at theofhee of Judge Car
ter, E. F. After the failure, through the
blundering of Matchott, to secure my re
lease at the time promised, I became angry,
anu used pretty severe language to .Mat-
chett. He went to Ashley and Butler in
alarm, and reported that I was going to
texpose the entire scheme to you.
After the "persons' I had sent .for to New
Ydrkas witnesses had' returned, Matchett
entl eavored, without my knowledge, to per-
suaue them to come nere again, ana in uis
letters to two of them he thoughtlessly
suggested some additions that it was de
sired they should make to their statements.
He made these suggestions by letter, as
his letters explained, because it was not
certain that he would be here when they
should arrive, or they might meet Judge
Bingham or some of the persons they had
been introduced to when previously here,

Shortly before the inauguration of Lin-
colp a'nd" Johnson, the lattr, through or in
connection with Booth, sent several letters
to the Confederacy, one of which was in
tended for Jefferson Davis. These letters
were borne by a messenger named Allen,
who had been acting as a scout or spy for
mm nf the Union Generals. Allen was
I -picket lines, and was supposed to have been
sent on scCTtduty, in connection-with his
command. Ho was also provided with
papers from a Rebel emissary at the North,
to ensure him proper treatment when he
should enter the Confederate lines. After
delivering his mail in Richmond, he re
turned, bearing several letters which he
received from J. P. Benjamin. These let
ters were enclosed to Booth. On returning
to Washington, Allen called on Booth and

Booth, on the first or second day before
his death, fell in with them near, Garrett's,
and asked their advice, and assistance in his
efforts to escape. He informed them that
he had killed Lincoln, and thereby made a.
good Southern man President. One of the
partic, whose name is uawson, said to mm
that if he meant that he liad made Andy
Johnson President he had done the worst
possible thing for the South, as he was
more extreme in his views', and a greater
enemy to the South than Lincoln. Booth
replied that it was a mistake that John
son, as a candidate and office-seeker, had
to say a great many things, but that as
President he could do what he pleased;
that he was bound to be a friend of the
South, and that if he went back on him
(Booth) he would have him hung higher
than Haman. These men belong to good
families and bear excellent characters, and
can be produced as witnesses.
Here the paper ends; but the iollowing,
which was originally the final clause, and
is now concluded, is still legible :

This note is not written in ink, but in
nencil. and. though dated "House Reps."
is upon a half-sheet of plain riote paper, I '
apparently torn from some note which nadir'
lipcn Carried in the Docket. It comes here
in an envelope, superscribed, in pencil, u.
A. Dunham, isa.. Prison." 'Ihis envel'
ope shows, also, some apparently idle scrib.
Ai'Rrz. 2C, 1867. Dunham: It Is all
right. The matter will rest for the present, j
or till the thing is argued in Alay.
You will not leave the city ad interim,
Mr. A will return next week, when: any
other matters will be adjusted.

This is written on a small scrap, in ink,
Superscribed. "C. A. Dunham, present."
On a still smaller, and much soiled scrap,
in pencil, but evidently by the same hand,
is this memorandum, or explanation
1. The " court'' cannot act without being a
"particeps criminis."
2. Congress will, at the proper time,' exer
cise its power.
3. Witnesses will be first called before
the committee.
For this despicable service Conover,
alias Dunham was to be pardoned out of the
penitentiary. The following recommenda
tions shows that Holt, the Chief of the
Bureau of Military Justice, and Riddle as
well as Ashley, the impeacher, were alike
interested in procuring the pardon
Fortieth Congress, United States
House op Representatives, Washing
ton, D. C, July 22, lSC7.-;QENTi.E3r2 :
I suggest that a petition, something like
the enclosed, be prepared and signed by yoa
fofr the pardon of Mr. Dunham. I think
he is clearly entitled to it, and hope you
will aid him all you can.
. Respectfully, J. M. Ashley.
Hon. J. Holt, Hon. A. G. Riddle.
The next paper is the following, from a
a late Representative in Congress Irom
Ohio, now a- member of the Washington
Washington, July 23, 1867. lb the
President of the United Statef SiRt 1 was,
early in Anril last, retained to aid thegov.
crnmcnt in the prosecution of John H,
Surratt, and took the general management
of . the preparation ot the case.
Tbfflabor and difficulties of the case were
great, and the government is under great
obligations to Charles A. Dunham for ranch
r.alnahle information, both as to theiacts,
and witnesses for the United States, and for
the history of and facts concerning the wit
neaies called for the defense. Although in
iail. he managed to keep informed, of the
progress of the case, and from time to time
mmmiin!fttl Jmnortant faclS'And sugges
tions, and seemingly for the sole purpose of
a fair investigation ol the case, wnemcr iv
feould work for hU benefit or not. It seems
to me that for hia services in thia behalf the
government should mark iU appreciation
of them in a way not to be mistaken.
Respectfully, A.G.Kiddxe.
Nothing is among the papers from the
office of the District Attorney, or from any
tot the' counsel in.the'Surraktriale'xcept-

of thc'valu'dand Importance' of lhe services

A new hog disease, it is reported, has
broken out among the hogs of South Mis
souri, which, is killing off nearly all at
tacked by it. At first the disease wa3 sup
posed to be hog cholera, but close observa-
tion shows that the symptoms and actions
are' quite different from that disease. The
animal has mucli the appearance of having
what is known among farmers as " blind
staggers." As long as warmth and circu
lation are kept up, the animal shows no
signs of disease, but as soon as it is quiet
and inactive the suffering appears intense.
Ih many instances the eyeballs are turned
completely around, and frequently burnt.
The hog attacked generally lives from two
to three days. All remedies yet tried have
proved ineffective, and many farmers, are
in dismay at the ravages of the disease.
Judge FisnER, who materially assisted
the prosecution in the recent trial of John
H. Surratt. inliis speech to the jury, gave
vent to the following Pharisaical exclama
"In a cause involving the life of the pri
soner upon the one hand, and the vindica
tipn of the outraged justice of a nation in
mourning upon the other, l aeemea ii my
duty to cast not an atom in the one scale
o the other which might by any possibili
ty) tend to prejudice either side of the issue."
,Any one wno waicneu me iriai, anu saw
the extraordinary manner in which Judge
Fisher ruled against the prisoner, will be
surely tempted to place the Judge in the
same category with the witnesses whose
character for truth and veracity was so se
verely questioned by their neighbor's testi
mony. Philadelphia Age.

DISPATCH, and by the generous and united
support of tho Uxiox xsd Distatoh by the
patrons of both the former papers, the Proprie
tors are enabled to present a Newspapcrhlthe.
tq unsurpassed in thw eity or State.
(EWS, our paper will compare favorably Rli
tiie best in the entire country; and in saytnc
this, we only repeat the expressions of many
our patrons, who ara moat capable of judging; In
uch matters.
In the Political Interests of
the People,
fore, will take the Constitution and laws fijr its
guide: and in the discussion of all the new and
intricate questions and issues arising out of the
extraordinary condition in which tho country i
placed, it will adhere to the prineiples aa
teachings of the founders and expositors of our
government and institutions. It will endeavor
toiguard with vigilance and defend with unwa
vering earnestness and faith the rights and Inte-
sts of all tha States, and the essential princi
Iss which constitute the basis of the Republic.
We shall oppose all invasions of these, and
uphold, to the utmost of our ability, the anten
of the States under them. Feeling that they
are endangered by the revolutionary sehemea ot
the Radical politicians who now hold thejLegls-
lajivo power of the Government, wo shall abate-
siaing or our past opposition iu uijir uim
jr With these views, whieh are no lees than.
ryiound convictions, we ennnet'and will ft
hesitate to defend the unfortunate Ssuth.frB
the aspersion! and impiMltiens heaped upinlte
people, and urge that JuaTlci and RlQH? sEall.
be meted out to them.
Our Manufacturing and
mestio Interests.
We shall constantly admonish fh&
neonle to be self-reliant, and shall ttwBfW'
may bo ablo te induce the oMabrUhEaent M
manufactories in our midst fer our heme pro
duct. Terthis end wewill pay speekl atfenltla
to the cost and statistics of manufacturings
and exert ourselves to encourage the diversifi
cation of Southern industries and the devolep-
-nent of Southern resources.
Our Financial and Commer
cial Column.
Every department of business has an imme
diate interest in the markets of the country, add
in its financial fluctuations and condition. The
man who fails to keep himself properly ad
vised aa to the rise and fall of the markets, as
controlled by the laws of demand and supply. .
and the relative condition of tho currency, if
exposed to constant toss, and must neeeasarMy
fall behind his more intelligent and enterpristag
neighbors. In ordw to mako our paper valu&Wo
as well as interesting, we shall continue to
make this a si-ioial fkatobk. Our Dally
Market Reports, domestie and foreign, by tele
graph, and our City Reports, gotten up at heavy
expense, have challenged the eommendatUa ot
out-best business men; while ourenrrent Finan
cial Reports from all the leading. mener centre
of )the country are fuller than hare ever e
published by any other journal in Tennessee..
Upon the Subject of Agrioulirire
And kindred toples, we shall also give an ex
tensive variety of valuable and Interesting rat
ter the best adapted td the farming ases Oi
our State, which will, in a great measure, sup
ply the place of a family agrieultural paper.
