Itn object is to advise your reader, and v hat little else remains of the '.vo: id, of the cause wMch led to the erection of our Gov ernment its purposes past nrfl present eon ditiou,' and probable destiny. Regarding brevity ns the excellence of newspaper com munications, and elaboration us Indecent and insuUiin; to the intelligence of the reading public. I shall confiuo myself strictly to con dense statomeuls. After enduring' with the .'most catholic for bearanco " a long train of abuses and inju ries," systematically practiced upon us our dearcstVights ruthlessly trampled down by tyrannic legislation, taking the action of Ten nessee, in her complicated ditfiVUy with the United States Government, as oW precedent, wc relieved' ourselves of this baneful state of afluirs in founding ft government 'of Justice and impartiality, , to sectional interests. In thus proceeding, wo .found wc had certain " reserved rights," of which wc had hitherto been ignorant, which perfectly justified our course. Republican Government depends upon tho consent of the governed, and should be destroyed when it becomes subversivo of tho ends for which it was created; so our people thought, so they dono. Umianimity of senti ment, purpose and action prevailed unparal leled In tho history of political innovations. Our press " foremost in every good word and work," readily ftoccpted the fact of our hide pendence, ' publishing "item," from other countries, under the head of foreign intelli gence. To Vc hrlef, the purposo of onr gov ernment may be statad as two fold ; 1st, to defend, maintain, and rigidly enforce those laws which secure to every mnn, tranquil and undisturbed enjoyment of his inalienable rights and 'immunities ; 2nd, to demonstrate the problem from time immemorial in process of solution, of 'every' man's capn'fy to gov cm 'himself. ' After thrco yen: s of successful operation, can there bo found i singlo man iu tho universe, so briircn-facei and reckless in nsscrtioiv'as to say, our Government Is ft failure, if so, wc point him with exultation to our past and present 'condition ft sweep ing rufutation of his column)'. Our declara tion of Independence, evincing bold designs, nnd,.invincible determination, struck the sur rounding nations dumb, with terror. The convulsions which preceded and followed the Inception of our Government, were universal ly felt nnd acknowledged. A powerful an tagonist nfoso ns by magic, in n finglo day, curving its domaio out of the richest portion of the Western continent, panoplcd In Invul nerable nrnionr, nnd impatient to enter the struggle for nntionol superiority. ' Every nation from tho United States nd tha mighty Russians, down to the Gerii.nnic provinces,' terrified by our rapidly Increasing power, prepared for their own safety. They Imagined our wordy enthusiasm, tho e mmls slon of smoke, preceding ft general Volcanic eruption, whose on-sweeping wav9 of molten InVft, woubi subincrgo tho world, leaving only our Republic the reality of . an ' oriental dream, to note tho conilnst centuries In the book of, time. .It was rumored here, that your own city did not deem Itself snfo from our encursinns., Foreign Conrts,,fawned with disgusting sycophancy, pon our cmbassa. dors, especially England nnd France, see ing' they could no longer devastate us, with the tornado) of tidlr limHlesss, rapacity, con ciliated our frUndjhlp by Immediate re cogni tion.

Our system of Finance, is the wonder of the monetary world, exhibiting a currency, npon a paper basis, maintaining a par value, through nil the vicissitudes of war. We our selves are amazed. : The Military Department Is not behind In tho ezhilit of our greatness, our armies, "full of lusty life," laurel-wreathed nnd battle- scarred, are ft wall of fire around their much loved homes. Our Fortresses, with their bas tions of gloomy strength, frowning with or dinance of the largest Calibre, are impregna ble. Our armed fleets, consisting chiefly of Monitors, built upon the grandest scale of Naval Architecture, have proven their invul nerablility in many furious engagements. But, notwithstanding our present national greatness and renown, and the guaranties of still grander attainments, we are perfectly willing to re-conitruct with your Government, if for no other purpose, than to teach Na polean and his people, that obi Monroe was not given to Quixotic schemes of conquest. Our President, His Excellency, Jacob Hill, is now at Washington, negotiating with this in view. His instructions to enter into no alliance, making us the victims of unscrupu lous and despotic legislation, arc explicit. Uiieomcioui of having done anything to merit the dinplcasurt and haired of a single human be ing, u e are heartily opposed to Dhfranthitmtnt, Emancipation, Confiscation, Expatriation and the punishment of our leaders. So if your Government desires a "pacific policy of re construction," profitable to itself, nud honor able to us both, it will insist on no such de griding terms as these. Ttie mob spirit must bo kept down, nnd Judge Lynch, banijhed from his court of Gum-brush and peach tree limbs. This is our basis of reconstruction. Do you approve it? Consult your interest, and do so. Reunited, wc will create an up roar in the Tuelleries, in lc;s than a fortnight; if you reject it, it will be no wonder to this Government, if the French Eagle's, nt no distant day, make ft roosting pluco of your magnificent Capitol. As you generously donated ft part of your office n slioit timo since, for a public deposi tary of loose plunder, wc shall ask the fuvor of storing in your care, our archives, army equipage, medical supplies, artillery, con demned wngons, &c. We hear you Are a candidate for the Ten nessee Legislature ; this Is Just to our hand. Give us tho use of your Ofllco, nnd asiirt ns to re-construct, and if we get into the Union before the election, we will roll up an over whelming vote for you, that will make your opponents believe Brickcrs Republic is a po litical Colopaxi, just burstcd for their special destruction. When the President announces the result of his mission to the Cabinet, I will write you Again.

This caso presents facts for your serious consideration for your own Interest Individ ually, nnd not only for your Interest, but nl. so, your country, nnd more especially, for tho credit of Washington County gencrnl'y, which I nm proud to say, stands first In tho history of tho Stato; that you con sider well tlio matters Plated In tho foregoing nrliclo, together with tho statement of tlio facta heroin after mudo, before casting your votes in tho coming election for Representative. 1st, Uol. 1'alton was found guilty of tho 1st, Spociflciition under tho chiirtro of "Conduct unbecoming an Ofliccr andagcnlleman, "and though notguil ty of tlio Chargo, tho Court snys that ho Is " quilty of conduct prejudicial to aood order and military discipline. " It !.. .i:ni..li i.. .1 - i: . ..r .!.. In UllllUUIl IU UIUW II III1U Ul uiFuinciion between tho two cliargos. and in this CB80 both hraHPB aro correct and ox press tho same thing. Tho only differ encois In thin, by tho 83rd, Ariicle of War,"anv Uommismoncd Ufiitcr, con victed before ft General Court-Martial of conduct unbecoming an Officer and a gentleman, hall bo dimmed the ser vice." The difTorcnco, if there is any, is n technical ono, by which ho is scrconod from the punishment of tho Law. As to whether tho lunarunffo which Col. Tntton iu charged with hav ing used about Lieut, Col. Urown wns unbecoming an olllecr and a gentlo man, or not, I leave you to decide. and it will bo borno U in I ml Hint thin language was umxl In tho prosonco of enlisted men of his Regiment. Iho Court iuunU him guilty of tho first ftnd socond Opacifications under chnrgo "nd, cxcorH tlio words, know 'Jl L ttf- ingly and willfully," lloro I will only stato that it was proven beforo tho Court by two witnesses, viz : Capt., Kindriclr and Lieut.. Munson, that there was a copy of Gonoral Orders of the war Department, containing an urder prescribing tho manner in which Veterinary hunieons should bo np pointed, on fllo in his Office at tho timo that tho appointment and muster wero made, and that thn question as to tho mannor of appointment was a sutijectot discussion in tho itegimcnt. So he must havo known that tho mus ter was false at tho timo ho mado it. Further, I believe it is not customnry for Courts of Justice to accept the plea ot ignoranco ot the law as an exeuso for its violation. It was his business and his duty to know what tho law was, and tho proof in tho record shows that he had it in his possossion, and could havo known by looking at it. But it appears from tho plea set up in this case that ho was too indolent to inform himself. Perhaps, ho found it more pleasant to play cards with pri vate soldiers and others, than toperuso such dry articles as General Orders usu ally arc. Ho spurned the advice of others, and refused lo bo instructed by oflicors who were more experienced in military affairs than himself. Ho was found guilty of tho 1st, and 2nd, Specifications under chargo 5lh. Theso Specifications, certainly, cover tho charge, and I nm not ablo to see how ho can be guilt' of them, and r?of guilty of ftc-chargo. Hut no criminali ty attaches. How is that i' Who can explain it? "All llie allegations in the Specifications under tho charge of Perjury arc sustained by the Court. Ho commit ed the net that constituted tho crime of Perjury, and for which tho penalties proscribed by the Act of Congress referred to in the chargo are, that, " in addition to the penalties now prescribed for that offence, shall le de prived of his ofiicc, and rendered inca pable forever after of holding any oljice or place under the United States." It also appears iro m the hr.-t Speci fication that, whilein tho Rebel Lenis- ttire, in 1902, ho voted for tho removal of the assets of the Stato Rank with out tho limit of tho Stato to keep them from fnllinr into tho hands of tho United States authorities; nnd it will bo remembered that the School fund which ho 'speaks of in his cir- cuh.r composed tart of tho nsets ol I'uo Rank, and now ho has the im pudence to ask you to vote fur him aga.n, nnd tells you thai t-ou must bo taxed to replace this fund, which ho by a public act as your represen tative, consented to bo removed from the State, and tiio greater part of which b' tho removal, which he sanc tioned, has been' lost to yon and your children iorevcr, and in those tunes that he refers to in his circular, which tried men's sohls tho prosperous lays of the rebellion, days when the fate of tho nation trembled in tho bnl lancc, and appearances indicated that tho overthrow of tho United States was inevitable, ho did not forsake his real friends, nnd even when they were forced by tho movements of the Federal army, to abandon their seats in thn capital nt Nashville, followed them to Memphis, in order as I onco heard him say, to form a quorum, so that they could transact business. Tho truth is, ho was then making a record which might have been useful to him had tho rebellion been a sue cos. Rut circumstances niter cases. Tho question of Loyalty was not beforo tho court martial which tried him nt (irccncvillo, as ho intimates in his circular. Tho principal ques tion was, Did he tab; the oath of office when mustered into the If. S. service, as Colonel of 8fi Tenn. Cav.Jalsch.; Thn crime charged was not committed by his acts iu tho rebel Legislature, but by afterwards swearing that ho had never committed said acts or been in said Legislature, at least such is the real meaning of tho outh: When Col. Pntton took command of tho 8lh Tenn. Cavalry, I was com manding tho post of Franklin, Tenn., tho greater part of tho regiment was at that timo stationed at Columbia, Tennessee, and along tho railroad bo tweon Franklin and Columbia. Soon after ho took command ho was reliev ed at Columbia, and took command of tho post of Franklin, relieving mo. I hnd received from tho former post jommandant under ft telogrnm from tho commander of tho District of Nashville, Major Ocn. Rousseau, a largo amount of ordinanco stores, which I at tho timo of turning tho post over to Col. Pntton, requested him to receive ns post property, but ho sworo "by God" ho would havo nothing to do with thorn, as ho considered him self only temporarily tliero nnd did not know what hour ho would bo ordered away, nnd nt tho same timo ho ordered mo to move my company twenty miles south of Franklin. I very politely requested him ns ho would not receive tho ordinnnc'o stores, to nllow mo to romain at tho post un til I could turn them over to anfolher ofJlcor, to do which I hnd to gut nn order from District llcudquiirteru for that purpose, but ho refused to grant mo the request. I howovcr Bbnt4 tho company tinder tho lot Lloutunant and ro m aine'd myself .ttil 1 turned over 18G5. the 6tores. Colonel Patton was much vexed bv mv courao. and- during tho timo prcforred chargos against mo for UisoDBdionco ot orders, una oruercu mo in arrest, but I disregarded tho ordw. n.rwi ho knowini.? that ho was playing a game of bluif, in which I held tho trumps, did not briug nm to trial. Major General Rousseau not onlr sustained me in tho course I pur sued, but complimented mo for it since that timo Col. l'atton nas oeen mv enemv. and has used bis position to ir.juro me, and sinco I have bpcomo acquainted with the man's true traits of character, 1 do not regret mai no is nnd has been mv enemy. Ho has cast a blot upon the reputation of his regiment tho men who unliko him, in times that tried men's souls, left their homes their families and friends, and scaled tho Cumberland Mountains to rally around tho flag of freedom and libcrty-7a blot that will only grow darker1 By timo. Shall I tell the sad story of Mason I. Gray and his son, of Robertson county, Tenn. Shall I tell how tho gia' haired man of sixty winters, and his son of 18 Summers wero taken from tho jnil in Gal latin, Tennessee, on the samo day in which they wero put in and butchered in tho most brutal manner, by order of Col. Patton ! Suffice it to say that tho old man and his son, on or about the evening of tho 10th day of 'August, 1801, wero taken out of the jaii'at Gallatin, Tenn., taken two miles from tho to-vn, and shot by non commissioned officers and privato sol diers; that the young mnn was shot first in the presence ot Ins lather, and then the father was shot; that their bodies wero left lying by tho wood- side, and citizens came in tho next day and asked permission of Col. Pat ton, who was commanding tho post, to bury them. I he men had no op portunity to assert their innocence, and in fact at the time they were ta ken from the jail did not know their fate, until they reached the place of execution, where they entered their protest and declared their innocence ...:.!. ,i, K.....,ib WUilw.i.

Quito a number of tlm oificers of the 8th Tennessee Cavalry tendered their resignations on account of this and other equally brutal ads. They wero men who had served tneir country h'onorablo and honestly, and preferred to quit the scrvico rather than to bo branded as outlaws. Nearly all tho officers of the regiment published their disapproval of tl.M monstrous crime in tho Nash ville papers, charging it directly upon Col. Patton, nnd bo nover denied it publicly, wo far as I know. These aro facts for the consideration of an hon est and law-abiding people, and I fcol it lo bo my duty, as acitizon of Wash ington county, to lay ihcm before you at'this time, that vo'i mav savo your selves and tho country tho dishonor of being represented by an outlaw. I might tell yon of the disgraceful conduct of Col. Patton, whilo in com mand of the post of Franklin, Tenn., that ho won tho disgust and contempt of all citizens who camo in contact with him; and, that ho attached moro weight to the verbal statement of Mr. Samuel llouso, whoso acquaintance, I Mipposo, ho made whilo in tho Rebel Legislature of 1SG1--, than ho did to Mr. Campbell, tho agent of tho Hoard of Trade at Franklin, and one of tho most utatinch and uncompromising Unionists 1 ever met. Tho circum stance I hero refer to, camo under my own personal observation. Mr. llouso was the Representative in tho Legis lature of 1801-2, from Williamson county, elected by almost a unanimous Rebel vote, nnd of course, must havo boon a genuino Rebel at tho time. Hut hero, I will state by wny.iof pa rcnthsis, that Mr. Jfsuso is n gcntlo man too high mindod nnd too honor able to purjuro himself as Col. Ration has dono for tho sako of nn ofllco. I might also tell you of tho general abusive and disgraceful conduct of Col. Patton towards the officers and men tinder his command, on account of which, tho energies of bin Regi ment were paralized, and tho noble patriots who, unluckly had fallen un der his command, felt that Ihoy wero disgraced by being commanded by such a hearlless brtito; vet to their credit bo it said, they did their duty fuifhlii'iy. I might also tell you of his profani ty his 1 1 1 1 c i contempt for morality and religion.
