I' reached Oaklani in safetyatid from thence, I proceeded ca foot to Oalllpolis. My feet becoming qulfce sore trgm "traTa-JlIiijf, I succeeded in getting transportation on board of a Government Wagon. At Oallipolis I found my command which I rejoined without delay. My old comrades expressed great joy to Bee me, and many were the expression of surprise uttered when ttiey heard tho story of my capture and escape. I reported to Col. Cook, and related all that had occurcd to me while a prisoner, at which he seemed greatly elated. After resting several days, I was detailed to go on a special scout by Goueral Geo. W. Morgan. The preliminary arrangements were made aud the march commenced. ; Three days' hard riding brought us to the " Red House " in Caney Valley, Virginia. Here we stopped twelve hours, for the purpose of rest ing our horses, whichwere wcllnigh exhaust ed. This delay was very unfortunate, as I bnd predicted. I even suggested the danger of such a course to the Captain commanding the scout, but he followed his own counsel. On the following day, about ten o'clock, a. it., while passing through a narrow defilo be tween two lofty hills, wo were suddenly fired upon from ambush. Our situation was ex tremely precarious. To attempt to fight a largely superior force under such disadvan tages, would have been the height of fully as the firing seemed to come from every point of the compass. To retreat, was the only al ternative, and that was found to be a failure as we found nearly regiment of infantry had closed in our rear, ready for our recap ture. Tho Captain ordered us to charge the line, but they stood as firm as tho etsrnal rocks that reared their lofty peaks on either side, of us. Iu the outset, several of our brave boys fell to rise no more, and many were wounded, among others, myself. I received a mus Let ball In the backof the neck, which, though ft'flesh-wound,and but slight, gave mo a great deal of pain. Finding the rebol line Impregnable, our Captain ordered us to full back, just in time to escape the next volley poured into us by lie enemy. But thero was no retreating in tiint diriTtiou ns we perceived the other par ty forming ft line acrpss our narrow way, and making ready for our reception. A halt was made, and some of tho ofliccrs proposed to demount and try them on foot but tho superior numbers of the euemy forbid such a hasurilous proceeding, A spirit of gloom seemed to take possession of every one of our bruvo boys reluctant to yield, seeing no chauce of fiapc, , , . A hasty consultation was had among the officers, when it was agreed to make an un conditional surrender. Whereupon, the Cap tain commanding threw up a grain sactt In token rf surrender., We were fired into ev ernl times after having surrendered.. A rebel officer was then seen to approach from the western rnd of t our corporation, and after giving orders to bis men to cease firing, re ceived cuf surrender. We were then march ed back to the " Red Ilouse" where we were placed under guard, and kept thero fur two days. On Uinonornlug of the third day, the rebels all left tut two who had bt'h placed iu immediate charae of us as euards. We knew not what course they intended to pur. sue io regard to one disposition. The coun try was net held pAet.culft.rly by either side tt that time, and we expected to start on the march tq Richmond every moment, and were surprised t the delay. , Jt ws about tea o'clock that wo beard in cessant fil ing to the North of the place of our isBprisonment. The guards became restless, and tjnally went to one side and consulted. Some of our boys seemed to apprehend mis chief fearing ther would-bo- slaughtered to prevent .being re-captured i but, I told them they ttjfed tot fear any such result that wc would soon be relieved by our, triends, and for them ttf maintain their fortitude and cour i.ttifeiifcjoujjongflr, .and time would uifoW4 nets; t&jtfim&7:?T" It was not more tun an jiour aner. tot in cident acenrred above related when the guards took np their arms and left us to nur fate I - We immediately consulted among ourselves to learn what would be the best course to pur sue, and all resolved to strike out, in all pos sible haste, for the nearest Federate amp. Be ing entirely uuarmed, we were compelled to take the forest paths ns our safest route, and thus avoid being re-captured b the prowl ing bands of, rebels, who were ever on the alert Onr wonderful deliverance from a long and tiresome march to the Confederate Capi tol, and a terrible prospect of long" Imprison ment, produced the moBt happy effect upon us nil re-invigorating and reanimating each to such a degree that not a word of complaint escaped the lips of a single member of our little band, and we made excelleut headway In our march. Fortunately, nothing serious befel uj on our route, und we succeeded In reaching onr com mand In four davs from the time of our rebel lease ; and felt extremely grateful to our rb- guards for the part they had takeu iu our de liverance. ' When we reached camp, we found the East Tennesseo boys in great distress. They were setting about In little squads, looking very gloomy indeed. We, of course, felt a great dcaire to know the cause of this state of af fairs, when we were informed that the EaBt Tennesseeang were not to be recognised or countenanced., Old men, as well as young, were seen with teats streaming down, their care-worn faces, and the sad, sad exclama tion could ba heard from their quivering tips my family in Eatt Ttnncuee u ttarving! nd we are here treated as enemies, while we have acTifid evary thing for our country's On the following evening the East Tennes see soldiers assembled together and stacking their arms on tho banks of the Ohio river, passed rsolutions to tho effect that they would fight no more, uuless they were regarded by thoso in authority with more respect and at. tention. Our uniforms were in tattert, and we undoubtedly presented u most humilia ting aspect. The next day a superabundance of quar mastcr stores were furnished us, and in the evening orders were received to prepare ra tions for a five days' march. On tho follew lowing morning we were ordered aboard a steamer, aad proceeded to Cincinnati, where our 'sick were disposed of, after which we proceeded down the river to Nashville, Ten nessee. When we landed on Tennessee soil, our East Tennessee boys were scarcely able to contain themselves they were Informed that they would soon have an opportunity to en ter the contest which was to dc'crinine wheth er the Union or the Rebel forces were to hold end occupy the land of their nativity. AU seemed eager for the fray. Our stay iu Nashville was prolonged only forty-eight hours, when we were ordered to the front, at Stone River, to take part in the great impending battle, '.hen about to take place. Our march from Nashville was attend ed with much suffering, especially among the infantry tho weather being intensely cold and severe. But every soldier seemed to be elated by the hopo of success and an early prospect of re-union with their families and friends from whom they had been separated so long nud although falut nnd exhausted, they would rully their courage with renewed efforts. After reaching the mttln body of our forces stretching across the Murfrecsboro' pike, we were ordered to preparo for meeting "l0 C0, cmy. A general cngrtgemout was hourly ex pected, and all the paraphernalia necessary to such anevent such as erecting hospital tents, and In front of which were to be seen long lines of ambulances, and wagons filled with hospital stores, 4c, were being pushed , for ward with the greatest alacrity. The enemy were then strongly entrenched In the town of Mu'rfrnboro', extending their lines as far as Stone River. On the 31st of December, lecjjtlu greut battle of Stone River took place, In which the Regiment to which I belonged took a promi nent part. Wo were thrown upon the ex treme right wing of the army, end appeared to be where the hardest Of the fighting took place. Upon that day our regiment made eleven charges, and carried our points seven times. ' At the close of the first day'i battle, we eon out of tht contest with seventr. three men killed and tne hundred and tlRuty wounded from this en Idea may be formed of the severity of the struggle. Of the various Incidents of this sanguina ry ind bard-fought battle, which occurred to myself aid friends, I will tnke occasion to speak in a fatnre chapter. ' T9 tt COFTIFfJiD ' : : : ' WP i . l - ' " . ' v.-.t 1-' , ' L. I 1 ij Tennesseo . Loyalists. I To the Eai the East - - :cn ; 1 Ffjaow-Citizess : la my message to the LegislatorOitbo first weeki;in Ootober, JL-urged tho im porta hce of eonfeririff pon tbcltHEX PEori-E or color the privilege of.-testifying; in courts of justice. J stated thjs Juct; that as our laws now ;Httnd, a freo col orott'man mrty btf deprived of his. life in the presence of hn hundred colored witnesses, whoso lips are scaled in the court.. I urged that onr juries and judges would be intelligent men, the exclusive judges of tho weiglit of tes timony, nnd n such, they would tnko into consideration the character of the witness, both for honor-and- intelli gence. I had three reasons' for re lliM.s.itAuro, tvij. theflo still BRilsry my.wivrd tS&i I M4-iUT 1. The thing i right in itself, nnd the dictates of virtue, patriotism, hu manity and religion, say givo the col ored man this showing. 2. It would do away in Tennessee, tho necessity for a " Freed man's" Bu roan," a tribunal foreign to "Our Con stitution and domestic laws; necessari ly arbitrary, and which' must bo pre sided over, in ninny instances,1" by in experienced military men, who have ho law knowledge, and but little if any judicial experience ,1 know then, a4 1 know now, that the Government having emancipated the slavos, it would protect them by Congressional leginlation, and that tho ' Bureau" must become n permanent institution. l. I felt confident that the passage of such a law would satisfy tho color ed peoplo nnd tho country, and that tho indiscriminate right of suffrage would not be exacted of us; whereas, if we should fail to concedo to tho ne gro the .right to testify, Congress would grar.t it for us, aud with it the right of suffrage. . . A law to lhis effect hrs pr.Hed tho Senate, but tho chances two that it will bo defeated in tho House. If lost, it will bo killed by tho loyal votes of East Tennessee the members cor rectly representing the sentiments of their constituents. This I knew when I pressed tho moasuro in my message; hut I believe the honest, patriotic peo ple wero mistaken as to their own best interests I think 60 still, but time will show.. The rebels clamor for tho right of testifying and voting, and Union men are ready lo'cotie'efloThB rlgTil, ot) the uccoutitof the color of their skin. Ono fuct alone should settlo tho question ns to the rebels that is, for four years they did nil they could to destroy the Government. For this they should not be allowed a voice in its nffuirs. Ono fact alone should settle tho ques tion as to tho blacks for four years they did nil they could, by giving in formation and fighting, to ,savo tho Governmont. Arid, but for their eohr, tho part they took in tho rebellion would give thorn the right to testify tind "vote. The voice of prejudice says, hold them back. The voico of reason and justice says, tiAv? suffrage from the . enemies of the Government, and give it to its friends. If the .States will not do this,i Congress LaH tho power, undor the amended Constitution, to do it, and will and ought to curry it out. As to tho powers of tho National Government, what Bhall be tho rela tions between itself and those who hnvo been in rebellion against it, and between itself and thoso it has made frco in order to put down tho rebellion, und save its own cxistnnc, no much is conceded by all who advocate reorgan ization on unj plan, from tho Presi dents experiment down to tho fireside suggestion, that thero is no necessity for claiming moro than is conceded. If, in restoring the governments of tho revolted States, tho National Gov ernment may say that rebels who take a prescribed oath may vote; that oth ers moro guilty of treason shall not take this outh, and shall not vote; then it enacts a law regulating suff rage. And if it can enact such a low, thero can bo no limitation on its pow or, under tho 'uifionded Constitution. It can say that somo whito men may veto and others may not; it can also say that somo black men may certify and vote, and others shall do noithcr. Dvpn rebels will acknowledge tho cor rccinoHH of tho doctrino of Alexander Hamilton, in that he has affirmed "EVKRY GOVERNMENT OUGHT TO CON TAIN IN ITSELF THE MEANS OF ITS OWN I'REservation." The samo Federal theory stated above, was enunciated by Abruham Lincoln, when he do tlured that" Tup' paramount idea OF THE CONSTITUTION. IS TO PRESERVE the Union."' t , This theory is sound, nnd I hold Ihut our nation contains initsulflho means of its own preservation, and those means should be put forth by tho men in authority'. I, for one, dony that eleven Statos of this Union, and hiillions of its people, may ' fonounco the authority of tho ".Oovornmcnt; and, by an iippual to arms, defy . its power; and, on the failure in the trial Of arms, rosuino tho power they had o violently renounced, unci hold and xorciso it in defiance of tho nation.r The Stales, wholher in rebellion or otherwise, do not possess absolute, nn tontrnllable sovereignty. ' The No tional Government tlocc, aivl it ran, "'NUMBER.1 32. o jwar, and make peace... -Tut. btates are-political bodies," existing; under the Constitution, and subordin ate tp the sovereign power of the na tion; pormitted by it to exercise such, functions as are pointed out say such' ns the punishment of crime, the ad-' mmistrution of justice, and to regu-! lato municipal affuirs, and for other purpqsos, having tho . power of tola-, tioh." V ', V, .i .' '"The .National Govornmetmay gov-' orti tho seceded States with' or with.' out the forms of State eloctioni. . If it chooso to havo elections,.) it has the right to prescribe the qualifications of electors; and it may make "suffrage limited or1 universal. " Tho sooeded States have no such rights until tbey .ctmio uu.JClhjeoHjTViuents of the States havo destroyjuwleir, separate' governments:- . As "communities pf peoplo, as States bounded by geo-, graphical lines, nnd having' certain.' limits, tho rebeL Statos are in .the) Union, and havo never been rut; but as governing powers", they are not in tho Union, for us such, in their efforts to' overthrow 'the Union, they have them selves been destroyed. ) And tLe l?a- t.ional Government is.bqund by every? tie, political and sacred, toxoid, und, control the rebel Slates in a manner that will secure the safety of the loyal peoplo in thoso States,' and of tho whole nation. The Governmont can. not. allow itself to bo destroyed, by hostile votes any moro than by hostile) armies, and if an abuso of the electivo francliiso under tho Constitution be-' comes the means of endangering the Union, wifely must bo sought in tho adoption of the maxim enunciated by Hamilton and Lincoln, already quo-, tod. In tho Southern States the recent elections have shown that men who had damaged tho Union loost reoeiv--ed the moBt votes. The repudiation of the Federal debt and the pnymont' of tho rebel debt, nro alike popular with the men now engaged vn re-organizing tho trovernmentof the South ern States. The restoration of slave-, ry is hoped for, and it is looked to in tho votirg uid caavewatton of the original rebels. This National Government will hold, tho South by military powr, as iu ought to do, until the people) have bo far come to. themselves as to heartily repent of the guilt and rJ"itoflhe re hellion, and afford proof of their re pentonco. Every consideration affect the interest of the country, and the happiness of generations yet unborn, requires that the rebels shall not bo rotoi't'd to power. And if wo nr hasty in anything, let it bo in doing justice bo tho friends of tho National Governmont. If wo delay in any thing, let it bo in giving pardons to leading guilty rebels, and power to tho organized enemies of the Nation al Government. 1 have deemed it my duty to say this much by way of explanation to tho loyalists of East Tennessee, and by way of letting thorn know what is to come upon tho country, by what I boliovo to bo the necessary legislation of Congress. And iu order to reach thetn, 1 will publish this brief address in tho Union papers of East Tennes see. I have no selfish objects in viow. I have no purpose to run for any office after my term of servico expires ; and, until then, if my life is spared, I shall do my duty, without looking to tho effect of my nets upon my popularity. W.
