Dr. A. M. Watson.
We had tho p'wsuro, yesterday, of a con
versation with thir, fientieman, and learned a
sood deal about affairs in our capital. Dr.
Watson is known by character, at least, to
many of our citizens. lie was a member, if
we mistake not, of the Medical Faculty in tho
N'nrhvill? College, and ono of the most intelli
gent and able Doctors of that city. He was
looked upon as one of tho most prominent
rebels in Nashville, and we believe the Doctor
pleads guilty to being a rebel in the fullest
: en3e of the term. The oulh which Lincoln is
:mr.o.sir.g upon the people of Nashville requires
more than the eminent Doctor could consci
entiously swallow, lie could not answer "yes"
to their first interrogatory, which is, "are you
ljy.il'.'" lining disloyal to the Lincoln Gov-
rr.ment, oppn.-isl (o the Yankees in general,
determined not to take the oath, ar.d tired of
.wing blue coats any way, and having already
:. i much property rather than save it by af
tccting to be loyal, the Doctor i:i sent to our
lines bv order of Rosecrans. "We welcome him.
llta,. The oath which Kosecrans the dog
fc:ci upon our citizens in Nashville, requires
.be a; to' : wear most solemnly, "without men-
il reservation or equivocation," to defend and
u:,:i.n the Federal Government in its cfforU to
.-rush the rebellion. Never, in tho history of
: civili7ed world, have the people of ft con
quered country b on forced to submit to such
j.!: outrn? ur;on conscience, and hell itself
''eicuie us) could not furnish a set of dastards
who have less regard for conscience than the
Lincoln Government and its officials. The
people of Nashville are citizens of the Con
!'.'d';rate Government, but are prisouors in the
Yankee lines. They should be treated as such.
I'.'it to Sake th'ir private eti'ecU, rob them,
and i'lMilt and injure their person:;, and then
force upon them an oath averse to their con-
s.-ienc' s - is it possible for such a people to
prosper'.' "Will not their iniquity overwhelm
them in ruin '!
When Nashville surrendered to the in
I'ernul Yankees, the people surrendered as
prisoner ; of war, and w do not believe his
tory aflVrdi an example whero prisoners of war
are forced to t-.ke an or.th of allegiance to the
raptor's "oi.r.'ry. ' t Rosecrans is forcing an
ath of our Mopleti----- an oath which thou
sands must Uko, al-liO'ijjh repugnant to thorn
' c every sees.

2&T Wo have roceivud, through the
kindness of a friend a copy' of the
Nashville Union ot thu 2'2d, hut it con
tfilnti nothing mrre than a lot of news
extracted f om Southern papers, avl
boiitionedi'oria's. We shall, perhaps,
to-morrow nouoo .it.
l?u If Mr. Vallandigham cornea
South of his otrn accord ; declarea
rfmself a Southern man and lor the
Southern causo ; and also desirous of
tho perpetual .seperation of tho South
from the North then, we are for
making him a General of a Division to
lead the first advance across tho Ohio.
If he is not so. in sentiment, what in
tho name of Liberty does ho here in
Dixjo, and of what use is ho to us ? i
Chattanooga Rebel.' J
Mr. Yallandighara does not como ot
his own accord, but as an exile in obe
dienco to the mandate of the vile auto
crat who rules at Washington. That's
what he does here " in the name of
Liberty." lie will not go about making
any such declarations as tho Eebel
wishes him to make in order to qualify
him (in tho Rebel's opinion) for a
Major Goneralship. To do bj, would
be to give the Northern war party a
chance to say, " we told you bo see
how VallandigUam tail's. Wo told
you ho was a traitor," Ac. We hope
Vallandigham will remain quiet. "Wo
don't desire him to give up his allcgi.
auco to Ohio, as a loyal citizen, of that
soveroign commonwealth. Let him
cling to that citiz-enship, and his frionds
then will work until public sentiment!
is so changed, and freedom so vindica
ted that Vallandigham can return to
his homo and battlo for tho rights of
his State, and the cause of liberty.
As to what use he is to us we stop
not to ask that question of a man who
is an exile. How a heart not made of
stone can propound such a question,
under such circumstances, we aro at a
loss to understand. Yet, with all our
admiration of Vallandigham, and our
sympathy for him, were he to do all
the llebel wishes, we would be opposed
to giving him a Generalship or a com
mand in our army. We have other
men of our own better entitled to such
honors. But we would give him a
house, and a bonny welcomo.
fi A cotemporary justly remarks:
In time of peace tho best men are
generally selected for positions of trust
and emolument, but in timo of war any
fool can get an office. In time of
peace tho highest places seek tho best
men, but in timo ot war the worst men
Beek the highest places. War is a great
scourge, and in nothing is this more
apparent than tho fact that it places
so many depraved, corrupt men in au
thority. 8T In our next will bo a letter
from a gentleman just banished from
Nashville. He gives a view of the
sufferings of our people there, and
mentions who havo turned traitors.
The Exiles from Lvicohdom.-Tho
Richmond Sentinol says :
Our Government must necessaiily
exercise caution in receiving those
whom Lincoln may chooso 'to "send
South." He must not bo allowed, un
dr pretenoo of banishment from his
own country, to introduce spies here,
lie must not be allowed to weaken us
in any way. Oar sympathies would
naturally load us to afford a shelter to
such as Lincoln hates for our sake; but
while the fight lasts we cannot afford
to let his barbarities win an advantage.
Our first duty is to protect ourselves.
Lincoln has, of course, colore right
to send any ons here than to send him
to England or Franco. Not bo much;
because we aro at war, when no liber
ties are allowable. Wo should .refuse
to receive any one thus offered io us,
who does not personally solicit it, and
unless interest or humanity dictates
it. Wo, must , refuse all who would
make cs weaker. We must requiro of
all who are received that they join
their efforts with ours against the com
mon enemy. 'They must assume our
allegiance and its duties, ijnd must
contribute, in some way, their skill,
and industry, and valor, to tho common

elusive of final disaster at that impor
tant point. At most, tbat stronghold
h invested, aud has' to undergo a siege.
Unless wo havo beeu strangely misin
formed as to the strnngth ot tho place,
it cannot bo parried bv storm, lno
town is well jrarriaoaod'and provision
ed, and the reduction of such a place
by siege is a slow operation. .Mean
time. Gen. Johnston has vvt to play
his part in the drama. Ho is behind
the enemy with a pretty large force,
and tnat daily accumulating. From
all accounts, troops are still pouring to
wards Jackson from tho East. Grant
will havo to .encourUer Pemherton in
his works in front, and defend himself
against Johnston in his roar.
It will probably require weeks or
months to roduca Vicksburg, and in
tho meanwhile the chances of war
open abundant hopes of raising the
siege by cutting oir Grant from his
supplies, or by assaulting hitn in his
lined. The (situation is interesting,
perhaps critical, but by no means de
Hpa;ring. Tho genius of Johnston,
esteemed tho bust strategist among our
Genorals, and tho valor of our troops
may yet convert this dark hour into
that which proceeds the dawn. Thoro
aro many evidences to show that the
Yankees'are short of supplies. Many
of their regiments soon go out of ser
vice, tho hot term approaches to weak

country is. noted; nd a great General,
with a strong army, hangs upon their
rear. We are hopeful of better and

been too proud or too lazy to savo

to procure paper even at fabulous

save rags for the p iper maker. What
