Only about Ave thoii-.and people turn out to tlie funeral of an Kx-l'resi dent, liut the Hilifvluir snectacle of h ronvieted murderer swinging from the gallon- attracts ten thousand per sons to the spot. Mr. H. T.

The Memplris Appeal suggests as a proper man to take charge of the nlale .Normal school, jlaj. Anderson, late Principal of the High School for boys in that city. It says lie has all me requirements or scholarly ability and experience. As the canvass in Ohio nro- cresses and the Democrats with their double dealing policy are driven to the wan lu tlie discussions incident there to, they are becoming restless and tie sire to raise new issues. Not being able to go before the people on the issues as made up between the parties, they are raising occasionally a faiut cry about "Third term.'- We note no new developments on the .Senatorial question. Our Nash ville cotemporaries seem to be as liruor ant of what is going on as the rest of us.

A negro man, charged witli the murder of Mrs. Jarrett iu Rutherford county some time ago, the particulars of which are freh in the minds of our reader, wag taken from the jail at Murfreesboro' Thursday night, by more than one hundred men, and hanged. The enforcement of mob law is becoming fearfully frequent in our State. Something must be done to prevent it and harsh measures may be required. "STATE SOVEREIGNTY." Mr. Henry W. Ililliard, of Atlanta, Gan has written a review of the life ot Andrew Johnson, which we find published in the New York Tribune, in which he takes occasion to avow his attachment to the hateful heresy of "State Rights." He finds fault with ilr. Johnson for his course at the commencement of the war, when he favored " coercion," and says : "No man is more attached to the Union of the States than I am ; I rejoice that the whole country rests under the sanctity of the Constitution, and is protected by the flag of the Republic, but that a Federal Government composed of coequal States may be maintained by military force, is a proposition in such direct conflict with the nature of our free system that I trust no exigency will ever again arise to make it necessary to assert it." Here we have the germ of secession in the same form as we found it pre vious to 18 (JO. In 18C1, when South Carolina and other rebellious States, under the leadership of Jeff. Davis, Toombs, Rhett, Yancey and others, were going oir in their mad Bchenie of secession, we were gravely told that the Government had no power to coerce a " sovereign State." We said that the Government did have such power, and subsequent events proved the truth of our asser tion. It cost a great many lives and a good deal of money to do it. hut it was done, and the Southern Confed eracy is a thing of the past. We had Loped that we would hear no more about States Rights, as it was then understood, but we fear we were mis taken. There are hot-headed politi cians in the country who would be willing to go to war again on their pet theory of State sovereignty, if they could see any hope of success. They are looking to the success of the Dem. ocratic party, which event they think will restore the question of States Eights to our politics, in all its former vitality. Toombs and Jeff Davis are not the only men who are groping amid the ruins or the Southern Confederal -'. lor a firebrand with which to "fire tl Southern heart," and revive issues which the war ought to have settled. THE NORTH CAROLINA ELEC TION. The following from a prominent and reliable citizen of North Carolina whom we have known for forty years, will show something of the significance of the election in that State, where the Republicans have madesuch iiu mense gains : Governor Ilrownlow : Dear Sir The late contest in North Car olina, fought upon the Convention question Democrats favoring and republicans op posing hus resulted gloriously in fnvur of the Utter party, aficr tho severest battle that I have over witnessed and taken part in, since 18-10, although, so to speak, I have taken part on many blooly fields with se cession democracy. It is conceded bv all thut this victory will decide the position of the State in 1870, and, 1 think, it will. In deed, llepublicans here consider tho late contest the beginning of that canvass, and the first skirmish with tho enemy, in which he was badly defeated. Demoralized as he is, leaders confounded, ranks scattered, and deserters flocking to our side. The cause of Democracy is hopeless in this State for many years to come: while llepublicans are jubilant, confident, determined, and full of courage. The first State to vole in 1ST0 is North Carolina, and therefore, success here is most important, and may turn the scale and secure tho election of a Republican candidate to fill the Presidential chair. This should not be lost sight of by our friends in other States, and by the leaders at Washington. If nothing occurs to dis tract our party, we will certainly ngain elect a Republican President, and so pro foundly engraft the party principles and policy in the administration of the Govern ment, that tbo people thereafter will not desire them changed. Poor old D. H. Hill seems to have subsi ded into the nothingness, for which nature designed him. The Chronicle hus laid him low. Trulv Vours. 1 ArtE WE A NATION? ' Under this caption the New York Tribune, of August 13th, discusses the lucstion of State Sovereignty taking for its text certain remarks attributed to Hon. Jas. B. Beck, of Kentucky. That gentleman is reported as saying : "Yes, gentlemen, there is that contempti ble word nation a word which no good Democrat uses when he can find any other, and, when forced to use it, utters in disgust. This is no nation. We are free and inde pendent States." Now if "good Democrats" all regard the word "nation" as con temptible if that is the test of "good" Democracy, we would like to know it, We have too much confidence in the good sense and patriotism of Demo- cratic masses, in East Tennessee es pecially, to believe that they look up on this qustion as Gen. Beck evident ly does. If the principles of Mr. Beck are to prevail, then the late war was a failure. If this is " no nation," then the four years of terrible war were all to no purpose. Any State may with draw from the Union nt will, and our government is really not worth pre serving. We regret exceedingly to see this luestion coming up again in our pol itics. It augurs no good for the fu ture. It is a dangerous heresy nnd will at some time in the future give us trouble. In discussing it, we do not feel that we are speaking of a thing upon which all who were Union men during the war shall be on one side and all who were rebels on the other. We believe that thousands of men in the South, who were Seces sionists, arc not in sympathy with Mr. Beck's views as above expressed. They believe that the Federal author ity is powerful enough and extensive enough to protect the Government from disintegration, such as might happen at any time if Mr. Beck's views are correct. We may as well prepare to meet this question as lead ing Democrats are determined to force it upon the country. Is connection with the vacant scat in tho United States Senate we have heard the name of S. D. Morgan, of Nashville, mentioned. Ho is one of the most successful, clear headed bus iness men of the State, and his long experience in business matters, it is claimed, peculiarly fits him for a posi tion in the highest legislative body in our country. These claims are by no means unreasonable. It is a well known fact that the number of first class business men in our legislative assemblies, is altogether too small. When questions of finance are to be discussed and acted uion. sound udgincnt would say that men who have had experience in financial mat ters bhould bo selected. Mr. Morgan s that kind of a man, ami his friends believe lie would fill a seat in tho Senate with credit to himself and his constituents, TUBLIC EXECUTION. If our opinion had been the oppo site of that wo have heretoforo ex pressed, the scenes which disgraced our town on Firday would have con vinced us that public executions arc demoralizing and disgraceful to civi ligation. Every thoughtful nn i w -rit'i,.a. ed the spectacle of John ' i..-i;it; nauieci to tncgaiiows, ue i . . an easier multitude of men, women and children of all ages, sexes, colors and condi tions, animated by no other motive than an unaccountable morbid curios- it-, must agree with us that the infill once of the day was evil and only evil, Tho idea that that spectacle will inspire the low nnd vicious with a wholesome fear of punishment that will in the future restrain them from committing murder and other kindred crimes, is, to our mind, absolutely pre posterous. In fact it was a gala day, with drums beating, colors flying, accom panied with general demonstrations more like, a 4th of July celebration than an execution under tho solemn forms of the law. Men were present with their wives and children, who live more than a day's journey from Knoxville. They will lose three days in coming and going, and their families are and have been and will continue to live almost destitute of the necessities of life. They will complain of their hard lot in life, and yet they find time to spend three days to witness a miserable wretch swing into eternity from the gallows. We trust we may never again have occasion to witness such a spectacle as that of yesterday. We trust that men will obey the laws, and that there will be no occasion again to enforce the extreme penalty provided for the commission of murder. If the law is violated, let it be vigorously enforced as it was in the case of John Webb, but in the name of civilization we protest against public executions. Though in some respects the weath er has been unfavorable it is safe now assume that the harvests in the South, already gathered or to be gathered, are bountiful. Cotton, sugar, corn, and wheat will bo abundant and witli economy and industry our people can start the Centennial -ear under most favorable auspices. Tho present is a favorable opportunity to urge upon our agricultural interests the impor tance of economy and industry. The whole South is dependent upon the farms for its wealth. We have com paratively no manufacturing indus tries to add to our wealth. We haye but few mines opened to swell the sum of our yearly products. What we dig from tho soil is all we produce all that adds to our riches. For years our crops have been inferior and our agricultural interests crippled. One good harvest can do but little more than pay ofTold scores and start us with better pros pects on a new year. Those who look to printed paper money to add to our wealth or lessen the burdens of the producer are far oil tho track. What wo need in the South is greater indus try, fewer idle, able bodied loafers about towns, railway stations and groceries. Work, work and more cotton, com and wheat to sell will make us rich and nothing else can. The time to begin for tho Centennial harvests is near at hand. Tho boun tiful yields of this year should en courage our people to cultivate more thoroughly their land, and then tho way to prosperity is open. HOW TO PREVENT CRIME. Tho idea that crime can be prevent ed by the punishment of criminals is a mistaken one. This is necessary, but this alone will not keep men from the commission of crime. He who supposes that tho hanging of John Webb, or Berry, or Iloneycutt, will prevent murder in our country during the present generation, will, we fear, find thcmsclves'mistakcn. There is something of far. greater importance in the prevention of crime than the hangman's gallows, or a cell in tho penitentiary, or tho county jails. If wo would prevent crime, wo must prevent the boy from becoming a felon. John Webb was not born a murderer. It lie had been surrounded in his boyhood with proper Influences, instead of filling a felon's grave, he might bo living to-day, a useful citu zen of tho country. It was his asso ciations and surroundings thut devel oped tho worst traits of character and led hiui to tho commission, of a ter rible crimo for which ho suffered the cxtremo penalty of the law. The chances are ten to one, if ho had had the benefits of a liberal common school education in his early youth his history would have been entirely dillcrent from what it is. 1 ho executions of tho past week wan tneir attending circumstances mortifying in the highest- degreo to thoughtful men, who are proud of ou State, are strong arguments in behal of a liberal free school system. They not only appeal to our humanity, but they appeal to us as good citizens interested in tho future prosperity of the State. The cost direct and indirect, of ar resting, convicting and exceutin tiuim ueoo, was suineient to main tain free schools in Knox county for a whole year. This may on first im prcssion appear extravagant, but it is true, and if called upon we will demon strate the correctness of our assertion by giving facts and figures. This being true, is it better to spend the money in keeping up schools and pro venting boys from becoming murder ers and thieves, or on the other hand allow them to grow up in vice and ;norance, and when they nrnvo at the ago of manhood, to hang or con fine them in the penetentiary, to rid society of their evil influence ? We need not ask such a question. Every one will agree that it is cheaper and more humane to prevent crime by cd ucating the boy than hanging the man, yet we do not show to the world that such arc our views. IS IT COPELAND OR WARREN? I lie ( arrrr of H Younir Mini III Knox- tllle W Imls I J. si .Mht Willi h Mini of Tiir nnd feathers. Fora Daily Chronicle August 17 J About the last Of May of this year, when the (lowers were blooming, the birds singing, and nature was assum ing her loveliest attire, a handsome young man handsomely dressed dropped into Knoxville, tioone hardly knew from where. He was a good looking fellow and but for his inordi nate egotism, would we think have made a favorable impression generally. tins trait in his character caused him to assume airs of superiority, and whatever else tuny bo mid of him, we have never heard it charged that he failed to give himseir full credit for all he knew. He said Ids name was LUCIUS F. COPELAND. He presented credentials as a local minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church signed by lie v. Dr. Hul.hard, of New Yor, and exhibited letters racommeuding him as a gentleman of good morals signed by a number of well known gentlemen, among whom was Oeneral Clinton B. Fisk, of St. Louis. He also produced his CHURCH LETTER, Or certificate of removal, of which the following Is a copy : CERTIFICATE OF REMOVAL. Centbal New York Conference, ) Geneva District, L East Marion, March 10th, lbTo. J This certifies that the bearer, Itev. Lucius F. Copelaud, has been an ac ceptable member of the Methodist Episcopal Church iu thin place. Signed W. A. Ely, Pastor. This he showed to Kev. J. F. Gold mau, Pastorof the First M. K. Church iu this place, who, however, never en rolled his name as a member of his charge. By his energy, activity, and we may say ability.he soon Ingratiated himself luto the good graces of a large proportion of that congregation and was invited and did preach in the chuieh. He also preached once in the Second M. E. Church, in Northwest Knoxville. A LAWYER. He soon displayed bis versatility of laicm, uy claiming to ue a lawyer, ami applied for license to practice law, uud upon examination was found "duly qualified," and received license to practice in our courts. He made sev eral attempts to form a partnership with a number of ourresidsnt lawyers, but failing to do this, he went into the olHce of Attorney General Williams and " hung out his shingle." NEWSPAPER REPORTER. He next turned up as a regular re porter for the Chicago Timet, and oth er napers, and in this capacity he visi ted Greeueviile and was quite active in reporting the death and funeral ofEx Presideut Johnson. In thin cnniw.it.r Lhe assumed great superiority again and cviueuuy regarded ordinary newspa per men as mere pigmies when com pared with himself. " JACK OK ALL TRADES." In addition to all his other accom plishments he was a Bunday Kchool man, a Temperance Lecturer, a " beau tiful " singer. His dress was in style and faultless, and he no doubt took some pride in his personal make up. Things went on swimmingly for awhile, butsoon suspicious circumstan ces began to present themselves. CHARLES W. WARREN. He called at the Postofflce and re quested the officials that if any mail came addressed to " Charles W. War ren" to put the same in his box, as he had a client of that name. This re quest was compiled with, and numbers of Charles W. Warren's letters were delivered to Rev. Lucius F. Copeland, Esq., Attorney at Law and Holieitor iu Chancery. In the meantime, he had rented. box i!74 iu the Post office, and his mail was placed in that. About this time, J udge Andrews, U.S. District Attorney received the follow' lug mysterious letter !

When this came to L,opelund's ears he manifested some uneasiness, but tried a trameof hliill'on me vonsarution, anil demanded a cor rection or retraction. The Atlanta pa per did neither, and thing9 began to grow interesting. A THUNDER CLAI On Sunday morniinr the Prcxx rinil JJcratduf this city reproduced from the nanimore uazclte tlie above alluded to, but without iu any way connecting it with our Mr. Copeland. Some people Wondered whv Ihn 1'rrna nnrl ltrr,.l,l gave so niueii space to an apparently unimportant matter to our dpohIm. Hut soon it became noised about that tlie Kev. Mr. Copeland, Esq., of Knox ville, bore a remarkable resemblance to the man alluded to in the Baltimore Oazctte. It spread and gathered vol ume as it, weut, so that hv 12 o'clock everyoouy was lallciug about it. INTERVIEWED. Soon Mr. CVmeland was intervieweil uuu uaiieu upon 10 explain, lie nian- nesieu a griet tliat was painful to lie. hold, and with tears in his eves said that the scaudal referred to was too true, but that his brother was the guilty man. This appeared well enough, and if his brother had been such a Lad man it was wronir to hnlil uiui responsible lor deeds be bad never been guilty or. But when called upon to explain the Charles W. War reu matter, he failed to do it satisfac torily. He said that he had onlv re. ceived the letters and forwarded them to his brother. Hut unfortunately for his story, he bad stated some days pre vious to this that his bad brother had committed suicide a year or two ago. jib inane several attempts at explana tion yesterday and ou Hundav, but none of them were satisfactory. Ou the contrary, EVIDENCE OF HIS CiUILT Seemed to accumulate. He had hud conversations with a number of our citizens, and it was gathered from one and another that he had been at nil me points mentioned in the Baltimore (iazcttc's article. The more he tried to explain the worse he got matters mixed. Whether he was thn who bad been W. E. Copeland, of Massachusetts, Itev. C. W. Warren, of Wilmington. N. C. Itev. WW iw. ton, of Canton, Mississippi, or C. W. Copelaud, the forger at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, or the Kev. Epuphroditus W. Simmons, of Memphis, or the Kev. Lucius F. Horton, of Pennsyl vania, he soon convinced some of our people that he was an adent. in tollimr different stories about the same thing. He did it apparently without auy prospect of making anything by it. Several things leaked out during yes terday Which onlv Continued i.nhlin opinion against him. DESTROYING PAPERS. Upon inquiry at his boardimr house we learned that when lie first came to Knoxville he had destroyed quite a number of letters, and perhaps other papers. He also destroyed a num- er of papers in his room nn Sunday night. However, he makes a statement about this matter wnieu we give below: CARD FROM MR. COPELAND. A good deal of excitement concern- ng certain statements iu an nriinio which annears in the Prrux nnrl aid of 15th inst., and which an active coierte or enemies have tl iireniiu sought to fasten upon me, calls for a card from me in relation to the mat ter. And first, I will say that the article U question most umiuestionahlv Hiy uot refer to a siuirle individnul hurt ul i, uowever, uoes rerer to a talented but erratic brotiier of mine, .who did in Milwaukee, New England, North' ,.f 1. 1 i " . . ' f i.arouna, and Mississippi, do the things charged upon him. I have striven in the spirit of a true brother- iioou, in connection with my other uiwiueiH, io cover up bis evu conduct. The article does not contain a single aN lusiou to any act of mine. Mrs. Marshall wife of a minister here, who knew my brother and of hit. i,..i conduct, yesterday in the presence of uer uusoauu, mr. v. m. Thomson, and myself, declared positively that I was not the man though resembling tln. This would be true of any others, if llinn ..nl.A t I.. I . " . ' nir.jr miunc iruiy, wno anew bis ruce. Mr. Morton, who is referred to iu an a'tlcle iu the Age of last evening, as having recognized me as being In Bal timore during the Sunday School Con vention, I understand, nays distinctly that he does not recognize as stated, but if he did so state, he was mistaken. I was not in Baltimore at that time and cau prove it. The Aye says I " burned private letter-." That is not true, and is the offspring of malicious surmise. I see the Aye states that I came too late with my card to their office. The Age could have published my card had they chosen, but they did not choose. They say I pretended to act fortheNew York Jlcruld and Chicago Timet at Greeueviile. I am an accredited cor respondent of both papers aud have the proof. I have never pretended to be other thau I am. A word ad to the outrageous treatment I have received in this matter, aud I close. I believed the people ot Knoxville fair-minded and Just, some have been but too many the reverse. I have been deuounced as a sharper, a fraud, etc., etc., without a hearing. In the name of fair piny I protest. I most certainly shall clear this matter up, and have o nly toask a suspension or Judgment until my side is heard before I am outlawed. Two points are intimated to me at this moment by a friend, as to be no ticed in this Issue. First, some man here says I am the mau who preached in Canton, Mississippi, and that he heard me. If anyone so states it is a mistake; though likeness of brothers, I am not the man. Second, that a collar was fouuil with Warren marked on It lu my room. The Warrens of New York are my cousins and friends. A collar and one or two other pieces of D. (uot C.) Warren's was changed for mine when at David Warren's house last March. They were not my size, and I threw , them away. My relationship to this family constitute much of the trouble In t..U matter. C. W. Warren is a cousin, and my brother took his name. The matter of correspondence directed to my care under that name, related exclusively to my poor brother's fol liesyand was done as it was to try and recover money, which lie carried away unlawfully, from the vile woman who leeched it from hiru. One word aud I am done. My brother was not the Baltimore man ; who he was I know not. My brother died bv his own band: and all this confession, wrunir from a brother's heart broken with grief for his errors, I charge upon the malice which has not cared for private griefs nor been just in extortinir them. I came to Knoxville as a gentleman, and nave been a gentleman among you, as I believe. I ask for fair rdav. L. F. Copeland. There was a Rood deal of excitement on the streets yesterday, growing out of this matter, aud it was feared at one time that violence would grow of it. Much of this grew out of the fact, that he was engaged to be married to an es timable young lady of this city. tarred and feathered. Since writing the above Coneland was passing down Gay street last night to the Atkin House, aud when passing in front of Holdren's erocerv. he was set upon by about twenty-iive young men when one of them knocked hiru down and he was treated to a coat of tar and feathers. Excent a slie-ht cut on the head he escaped unhurt, but was iu a sad plight. He went down to the Atkin House where he was refused admission to tlie rooms. and was allowed to go into the depot wueie no wasueu uimseii anu we sup pose left on the Eastern bound train this morning. We regret that any violence should have been shown him, for, as we have said often before, we are opposed to mob law under auy cir cumstauces. We publish his card above because we are willing he shall be heard, and not becausewe have auv evidence that what he states is true. The Northwestern Crops. The harvest in Wisconsin. Minneso ta, Michigan, Nebraska. Dakota. North ern Iowa aud Northern Illinois has been rapidly advancing during the last two weeks, and it can be said without exaggeration that the weather has been unexpectedly favorable. There have been some rain and hailstorms, some small tornadoes, but the general result nas been uecidediy good. The weath er has generally been very cool, and no small portion of the time cloudy ; that is considered very -favorable to the farmers, because, as an experienced person said to us, at least one-third more labor can be obtained out of the harvesters iu cool than in very hot weather. Those who have moved wv hay in a close barn, or beeu under a burning sua in a harvest field, when the mercury marked flo or 100 in th shade, can readily understand how mucu more worK can be accomplished In the country in a eiven number nf days when the weather is cool and bracing. We therefore think that the last two weeks in the harvest field have beeu as good as ordinarily two wopI and a half. Give the farmers of the Northwest ten days more of favorable weather, and the bulk of the wheat will have beeu secured in excellent condi tion, and in such quantities as were never known before in the history of thiscountry. Of course everything de- jeuds upon tlie weather for the uext wo weens.

The wheat crops of Canada has suf fered from the severity of the winter but on thp whole the quality is said to be good, and the total yield, although below the average, will be much larg er than was expected. Spring wheat will be above the average to a quite heavy per cent. Corn lias a most promising appearance, and the return per acre will be fully up to, if not above the yield of the last ten years.
