Mr. Gregory, in his circular, says thai "Mudaiu Rumor" reports that Dr. Boyd, Lis competitor, has given as "his reason lor not marrying, that he doubted wheth er there was a virtuous woman in the world," etc., etc. In his circular, Dr. Boyd denounces this "rumor" as false, in every particular. He never had such a thought, and never uttered such a senti ment, it is f;tlse and malicious, in its very conception. He says a man who W(i;!.l t.tter such a sentiment is unwor thy live.

Gregory, in his address, nses se words: '1 am charged by the Her tl ald and Mail with helping to hang a ne ;ro, in lxil, by mob law.'' What is the tact? Six days before the Herald first poke of Mr. Gregory's connection with the negro hanging, he made a speech in the court house, before negroes and a few w hite men, in which he stated that he had helped to hang a negro in 1861. He aiteinp'ed to go into the particulars of his catching the negro with blood-hounds, :uul the other circumstances preceding the haii.ixiii. but the negroes spoke out stud said they Jul not care anything silioiit that matter. The week following, we Muted, upon the authority of Mr. Gregory hiin:.elf, that he had helped to Jiang a negro in 1 s l 1 . by mob law. And now he .eeks to make capital by saying, "I am charged by the Herald and Mail with helping to hang a negro, in 1861, by mob law." How anxious these Republi cans are to make it appear that they are persecuted ! About a month ago Mr. Gregory, in a -peec'i to the negroes, confessed that before the war lie used to whip his ne- roes severely, and bought and sold ne groes. In his recent circular address, printed by 1". H. Smith, Mr. Gregory ays, "As an individual, I wish lo con tiil.ute my imie to the elevation and christian civilization of man, no matter wlieie found, nor under what circum Manceshe may be placed." It is a little t-ingular with what unanimity all Repub lican leaders in the South agree on one point the manner in which the negro .vhail V "elevated ;" they all insist that the negro shall be "elevated" by the negro iir.-t "elevating'' them into some fat otiiie, as a condition precedent to the Y!ev:itifii" of the negro. In other words, in order to get "elevated,'' the ne ro mutt let their white leaders be "ele vated on their shoulders. r. -A. Hojl. Dr. A. T.

The time is so near at hand tor the election which is to be held on Tuesday, the 3d day of November, it will be im possible for me to see all of the voters in this Senatorial District. I deem it a duty that I shall present for your considera tion, some of the views I entertain, and will support if I shall be elected your Senator, in your next General Assembly. Leaving out ot discussion all questions which are settled, and which no legisla tion will probably touch, I shall men tion some of the leading measures, the consideration of which, will necessarily come before that body; and also some other measures, that ate probably my own peculiar views. Ine public debt, the current expenses of the State, the assess ment of taxes, the amount and manner of levying taxes, are all vital questions, and must receive a large share ot atten tion from your General Assembly. The constitution of the State ot lennessee Drovides that all DrooertT. real, personal or mixed, shall be taxed, but the Legisla ture may except such as are held by the State, churches, schools, &c, and one thousand dollars worth of property in the hands of each tax payer, and that all property shall be taxed according to its value, and "shall be uniform throughout the State." "No one species of property from which a tax may be collected, shall be taxed higher than any other proper ty, of the same value." The Legislature also has the power to tax mercnanis, peddlers, and privileges,'' and upon in comes denvea irom stocus anu uonus, not taxed ad colorem. You herein see the whole field in which the assessments are to be limited, and beyond which no legislation can reach in raising revenue for the State. The rights of property in relation to taxes are protected b that there shall be no discriminations against any, but all must be taxed, with certain specific exceptions which are mentioned in the organic law, and may be released. To pay the interest on the public debt of the State, the amount must be levied upon the whole taxaole value of the property of the people subject to tax, and to that per cent which will cover its demands. And also, any further sum of money not realized on privileges, &c, as provided for in the constitution, to pay the current ex penses of the State, which can only be approximately estimated. The State of Tennessee having in good faith renewed the obligations to pay interest on her bonds is bound in houor to provide the means whereby it can be done. It will be the painful and inexorable duty of the next General Assembly to enact a revenue law to meet the demands ot of justice to all of the creditors of the State, at a time the least propitious to the people, that we have experienced in any time of peace. I have no personal interest' to subserve in these views. I own no bonds or stocks, The assessment laws of this State will be revised, and when it is done I hope the forms will be clearly intelligible to all of the tax payers of the State, and less objectionable than the present law. I believe the taxes upon the people may be greatly lessened by apply ing as it were, the pruning knife, to very many superfluous expenditures that have grown upon the body politic, and which ought to be abated. Our courts ate burthened by many petty cases of litiga tion that cost the tax payers out of all proportion to the amounts involved to the litigauts, delays justice in important cases and lessens the good repute, and destroys the dignity of our courts. Witnesses who ought to be in the fields are taken away from home at times when they are greatly needed i their crops, becomes onerous to general prosperity as well as the tax which sustains the courts. Inferior courts ought to be instituted to dispose of nearly, if not quite halt, of the cases which crowd our court dockets. The people of Tennessee are now greatly .innrensed hv dbt. at a time when the rrniu with few exceptions, have failed to pay the cost of production, and the mount ot currency in circulation ia insufficient for the most ordinary wants of the people, and it is now the time to abate every bjtirthjan that can be removed without crippling the puLlio service, or driving out of ofiice our most competent men. I hope the views herein indicated will lead the public mind to the conclu sion that I intend to do the people good service, if I stall be honored by their suffrages, and elected their Senator in the next General Assembly. I will say further, that I endorse the platform of principles adopted by the Democratic and Conservative Convention in Nashville on lha 10th August last and in conclusion that, I am uct indiffer ent ai to the result of the election about to take place, nor of the good opinion of my ft -How-citizens. If I shall be elected I will endeavor to represent the opinions and wants of my constituents on all ques tions and measures, so far as I may be informed of them, if not in conflict with the organic law. A. I. lOYD. JAMES H. G RESORT'S ASS&ES5, During the latter part of last and the first Dart of this week, the news got abroad that Mr. J. II- Gregory, Republi can candidate for State Senator, had in nreas an address to the people of Maury nd Williamson counties, in which he would proclaim some strange doctrines. Tuesday evening last a number of copies were circulated, lhe address contains a few insinuations against the moral char acter of his competitor, and many thread bare platitudes, which may mean some thine or nothing. The personal insinua tion against the private character of our candidate is a personal maiier Detween the two MEN, which they may settle be tween themselves, at their leisure. He says not a word against the platform up ou which his competitor stands, but seeks to lower the canvass to a mere dirt and slime throwing contest Dr. Boyd was nominated by probably the most thor oughly representative convention of the white people that ever assembled in Mau ry county. They nominated him and placed him on the platform adopted by the Democratic State Convention. lie accepted the nomination, and agreed to stand upon the platform- We support him because he supports political princi ples which we endorse. Mr. Gregory says in his recent address that he is not in favor of amalgamation, but adds, ' 1 am in favor of protecting, by law, every man and woman, white or colored, in the voluntary social relations they enter in to." In a letter addressed to the editor of this paper, several mounths since, and which we published at the tinjc, Mr. Greg ory said, in answering- questions as to whether he was in favor of amalgamation, "I propose to let each individual solve this matter for themselves by a law of conscience and fancy; he who tancies a HKfXKTTE, let him enjoy the society of his brunette, and -worship God under his vine and tig tree, according to the dic tates of his own conscience, without being molested by him that selects a blonde. Let the rights ot each be respected let them live together after God's holy ordi nance." What does Mr. Gregory mean by this, if he does not mean that he is in favor, by law and social countenance, of letting uegro men marry white girls, and white men marry negro women? Is there left for doubt? None whatever! He meaus amalgamation, and says what he means. We do not attempt to sustain our assertion by quot ing what the dirty tongue of "Madame Rumor" may have beea circulating but out of his own mouth we condemn him ! This obnoxious opinion of Mr. Gregory is a very important matter to the people in the fact that be is a candidate for the State Senate, where, if elected, he would be called upon to aid in making laws tor the people. Like all Tennessee Republicans, lir. Gregory makes light of the Civil Rights Bill He has the manliness, however, to support it, in erlect. ue says nis party is ' attempting to appij "overnraent.'' It is well he used the sav-ui"- clause, "attempting." And such .an atfempt! Witness it in the acts ot such "Christian Statesmen" as Smiling Sciwy ler Colfax, Old Subsidy Pomeroj, Sena tor Harlan, Sunday School Dodge, and other leading Republican lights who stand before the nation guilty of lying, perjury, stealing, and corruption.

" applying nnstianiiy to government, but we are not surprised at this, when we ate informed in Holy Writ that even the Devil quotes the Scriptures when it suits bis purposes, and especially when be wishes to deceive. Mr. Gregory evident ly favors the principles advocated in the Civil Hights Bill, that "sum of villainies," as Browntow calls it. Mr. Gregory says be is in favor of the repeal of the conventional 10 per cent, interest law. So are the Democratic can didates tor Senator and Representative, as they endorse the resolutions adopted by the conventions which nominated them- Qn the financial question Mr. Gregory aova I X H1U 1 am in tavor ot preserving ine dit of the State and Nation by paying off the entire indebtedness of both, if it c&n be done in conformity to strict-rules .of economy." This may mean one thing, and it may mean anoth er. It may mean repudiation, or it may not. He makes it depend on a very frail IF. We may be over-suspecting, but to us there seems to be lurking repudiation in that sentiment; or at least a desire to create such an impression on the mind of the reader. Mr. Gregory cites Hayti and Liberia as evidence that negroes can have good republican governments, unaided by white men. We are told by travelers and white men that these two nations are rap idly relapsing into African barbarism. In reply to the strictures of one of our Spring Hill correspondents, Mr. Gregory denies the allegation that he was descend ed from "the best blood in the State," and says his father was a "Virginia overseer, then a slave-owner, and finally a negro- trader. He repudiates, with evident pride and scorn, that his ancesters were of the "best blood" The Main Plank In J. H. Gregory's Plat form. r Extract from his July Letter. It is frequently sneeringly asked, if I am in favor of the amalgamation of the two races. To such, I will answer once for all, that I am a Bible reader; I try as far as I can, to adopt moral precepts as the rule of my life, and believe that every thing that is absolutely necessary for man's happiness in time or eternity is there taught; do not believe that God in manifesting his will to man would have neglected to inform us upon any question of vital importance to an inquirer after truth. The Bible is silent upon this sub ject. As 1 think, therefore, we have nothing but the law of conscience to con trol our actions in this matter, as such, I propose to let each individual solve this matter for themselves by a law of con science and fancy; HE WHO FANCIES A BRUNETTE, let him enjoy the society of his brunette, and worship God under his own vine and fig tree, according to the dictates of his own conscience, without be ing molested by him that selects a blonde. Let the rights of each be respected let them live together ajler Gods holy ordi nance. Remember. Two years ago Conservatives and DetnJt ocrats staid away from the polls, and thus lost six Congressmen in the State, and at one time it was feared that Whit- thorne was also defeated. Let the misfortunes of that year be a warning to us, and induce everybody to go to the polls, next Tuesday, Nov. 3d- Don't for get the day, or fail to tell every person you meet, as there ;s some misapprehen sion in regard to the day.

Memphis Appeal.l In the following extract, which we copy from a circular issued in East Tennessee in 1866, Mr. Maynard appears in hii true colors as an original abolitionist and miscegenationist, willing to sink his race irthat ot the negro tor the sake ot per petuating himself nnd his party in office. It is an extract from a speech made by the Radical candidate for governor at Athens, on the twenty-first of August, lebb, when he conlessed: "I am an abolitionist, and have always been one. I was accused of being one when I first immigrated -to the State The charge was just; I was full and run ning over with abolitionism, but I denied it for policy's sake. I am proud to-day that 1 have been classed among the per &ecut"d set, and deem it the highest com pliment to be denounced as such. Ana 1 tell you, gentlemen, that in a snort time all this complaint about negro equal ity will be done away with. Soaie month since, and it was said that the negro would not be suffered to testify in your courts that his oath would not be granted him. But how stand matters to day? He is not only permitted to testily in yoiiF courts with impunity, but there is every evidence that he" will be on a social -Quality with the white man in your State. Yes. aenllemen, in a short time he will marry and intermarry in your families. It is a little objectionable to day, but you will saon get over this, and the persecuted negro will be welcome to your parlors. This will be the result of the political and social changes of the next few months." We call particular attention to the italicised lines in the above, wherein this gentlemen, who now says he is opposed to the cjvf I rights bill, predicts joyfully the mixture ot tpa races which every right-minded man is anxious to prevent. White men, no matter what their poli tics, have only to think of the intermar riage of the races, and of the negro being made welcome to our parlors, to know how to vote for governor, and where to consign Mr. Maynard. Not even the im pudent negro of Somerville who expressed himself willing to ride to his bridle-bits in blood to accomplish ujiscecenation was more pronounced for it than is Maynard in this extract, nor any more insulting in the words he employed to express it. we ask the particular attention of all white women to this extract, and beg that they will make the'r fathers, brothers, sweet hearts and husbands say whether or not they are in favor of subjecting them to the embraces of the lustful and brutal ne gro, whose ideas of sex never rise above the most brutal plane. MttWitrd, by this extract, is committed incontrovertibly to miscegenation and civil rights. !Vliiy(tUF(t si si Fnailrr. In his speech at Knoxville, Saturday night. Governor Brown hit Maynard the following terrible one, straight from the shoulder: "There had been, up to the meeting of the 38th General Assembly, no opposition to the fuuding of the State debt. That Assembly passed the funding bill. Now we are told that bill is iniquitous. The Republicans in the Chattanooga conven tion, and its party leader, Horace May nard, denounce it as "iniquitous," They denounce the administration of John C. Brown, and especially mention the fund ing bill, the assessment law and the Pen itentiary lease. I do not believe there was any "ring" connected with the pas sage of that bill. But if there was, let us look at some of the men who were "lobby ing" for it in the capitol. The Governor mentioned a number of leading Republi cans who were among the lobbyists for the funding bill, including William Rule, of the Knoxville Chronicle. There was another Republican, one in Washington, who wished to put the bill through- Ue was very anxious about its being passed, so anxious that he wrote a letter to Judge Ilouk urging him to vote for it. Judge Houk was undertermined, and Maynard wished to convince him- fco very anx ious was Maynard about it, so afraid that the crisis in the bill might arrive be fore his letter reached Judge Houk, that he sent him a telegram from Wash ington urging your Representative to vote for the funding bill. -That Republican leader who wrote the letter and sent the elpsrram to Judge Houk was Horace Maynard." (Sensation.) Tennessee's Annual Ailment. J Cincinnati Commercial. They are having the usual Andy John son row in Tennessee. It comes on regularly in the fall, and is a sort of breakbone fever. Facts and Figures. Gov- John C. Brown made an able speech at Chattanooga last Friday night. In reply to some queries propounded by the editors of the Commercial, a Radical paper of that place, he denied the assertion that the convicts had been leased at ten cents a day and the part of them hired back again to work on the capitol grounds- There was nothing whatever paid tor the convict labor done on the capitol grounds. The penitentiary had been leased for 3.5,000 per annum, and part consideration was the work ot so many convicts upon ine capuoi grounds. As for the second supposition, that the penitentiary had been leased at $30,000, when the Inspectors in charge had made a profit of $94,000 per year, he asserted that it was misconceived. The State instead of making $94,000 under the Inspectors had lost $36,000. Under1 Radical rule, the penitentiary had cost over and above receipts, $114,000, That is, that amount had been paid out by Republican officials, and charged as deficit on the penitentiary. He did not pretend to say whether the money had . actually been expended on the peniten tiary. These figures he could substantia ate by official papers. ' He would not make an assertion that he was not pre pared to prove. These reports had been made in the open Senate, and not a Rer publican raised his voice against them- Under Radical rule, the penitentiary had, in five years, cost the State over $8,000, 000 while we are now making, under Democratic rule, a clear profit of $33,000 per annum, and not ?dO,000, as wrong fully stated by the Commercial. lhe sale ot the Memphis and Llarks- ville Railroad had been made before he came into office, but, though not person ally interested, he would say that by decree rendered, it was sold to bona jide purchasers. It the editor had examined the proper records, he would find all the information he might desire. The Re publican party, with a recklessness un exampled in history, had loaned over $5,000,000 to railroads that wernot rail- roaas; roads that had no termini what ever, and that were never meant to have. 1 he sale of the railroads had been advised in the report of a Republican Comptroller, Bl.ickbnrn; which set forth that they entailed a yearly expense of $2,5000,000. He could say of the Dem ocratic Administration, more than could be said ot any other, that not a road, with but one or tw" exceptions, had been sold that could not be repurchased for the same amount, and many for half the amount. I'lie Mules of Tennessee Rail ICouUs. Maynard is in the habit of stating, from day to day, that the debt of the State was increased, from 1871 to 1873, five millions of dollars, and refers to Comptroller Pennebaker's reports as proof. These documents, which are now before us, show that there is not a word of truth in Maynard's assertion. In his report, dated Oct. 1, 1870. Mr. Penuebaker puts the debt of the State at $38,531),802, and in that dated Jan. 1, 1873, the whole debt, without, giving any credits for moneys paid in, is placed at $43,868,118. He, however, gives on the same page the amount of money that had been paid in, which, taken fiom the gross amount, with out these credits, shows the debt lo nave been, at that date, $31,585,323, which was a reduction, from the 1st of October, 1870, of $6,954,49!). Mr. Pennebaker says, in his same re port, page 42: "The successful sale of these railroads has changed for the better the phase of our monetary condition, and the debt, heretofore o unwieldy, can now be easily handled. It is true that Mr. Pennebaker, in his report of 1870, estimated the insolvent railroads as worth over $10,946,000, but subsequent developments proved that they could not be sold for that much by moie than $3,000,000. Alter they were disposed of, he pronounced the sales "successful," and that they clearly were so, will iully appear when we state that they were costing the State, exclusive of waar and tear, $2,500 per day, or $906,500 per annum, So much for Maynard's misrepresenta tions on this score. Union and Ameri can. Maj. W. J. Sykes recently made one of the ablest speeches of the canvass at Brownsville, on the political issues of the day. His defense cf Gov. brown, who has everywhere been unjustly assailed, is so true and just that wo publish it: In reg-iru the to the Jiotbs matter, about which you have heard so much, have only to say 1 know nothing in refer ence to it. It Houbs was guilty, let him receive the public condemnation which such conduct richly deserves. If he is innocent, let the slander blister the tongues oi mose wno utter it. so tar as John C Brown is concerned, I shall speak with confidence. I have known him well tor more than a quarter of a century. I knew him as a school-boy, as a young lawyer. 1 practised law at the same bar with him for many years. I knew him in tne walks of civil life and as an officer in me ionieueraie army, and it affords me pleasure to say that in all the walks of life, in all the stations he has occupied, whether as a boy at school, as a lawyer at the bar, as an officer in the army, in times of peace and ot war in the pursuits of civil life, in the hour of danger and in the shock of battle, he has always pre served a proud and stainless reputation, and now the envenomed shafts ot Radical malice fall harmless at his feet. He says; In the varied relations I have sustain ed to the country, I have endeavored to do my duty. Before God and ' the coun try 1 have been faithful to my trust. .My oll.cial acs are before the country, and an investigation of them is challenged by men of all parties. I have never known of any rings or cliques- I have never traded in nor specu:ated upon your securities. 1 never owned a boud or coupon ot the State, I have not made one dollar out ot the State, or anything connected with the State government, or apy of its institutions, and he who makes the charge, directly or by innuendo, is a liar anu a slanderer.' Uoid and strong language, but such as the occasion justifies. I am uuder no obligations, personal or political, to John C. Brown. 1 dillered with him in poll- t cs before the war. I have not agreed with him in some of his views since the war. 1 may not have approved of every act ot ins auunuistraticu, but 1 can do justice to a noble, true and gallant man who is traduced and vilnhed by men because "there is a daily beauty in his life which makes them ugly.'' I defend him, as I would defend any other Demo crat or Republican who was unjustly assailed. 1 can do him justice and de fend him, as I would defend any other member of my party who is unjustly assailed and maliciously traduced. We must not permit the senatorial question to distract and divide our party- The success of our principles is of more im portance than the election of any man. Wo must not lose the fruits of our victory by dissension among ourselves about local issues, whilst presenting such en couraging prospects of political redemp tion. Whatever man the majority ol Democrats in the State express a prefer ence for, let him be elected. A Colored Mini Opposes the Civil Kiglits Hill. A colored man named W. T. Franklin, of Franklin, Tcnn., has written a sensible letter to the tranklin Review, in which he takes strong ground against the Civil Rights Bill. He says its passage would be'particularly detrimental to the interest of the colored people. We quote a paragraph: "First, if the bill becomes a law, from every appearance, the entire public school system here in Tennessee, i .i riK. t.-.;-.a j aud otner oiaies, imu f,v:':i ui strife, malice, hatred, and what is foolish- Iv eal ed neirro equality, win unite an the devils of that type." This is as true as preaching. These are not the words of a white man, but of a colored man, who has sense enough to sec the truth and manliness enough to speak it. Hear him: "I say. I dou t believe that the very men who offer the bill are willing to come on equal terms with me, but all thev care for me is to get my vote, so they cau get into office, but we want men into ofiice that will make such laws as we can live under. I wish that every colored mar. thought about this civil rights ques- tion as 1 do, 1 he nay iubl inai oui ue enmes a Kw. we poor colored men are ruined, and I ask Congress in the nam B of high Heaven do not degrade us any lower than we are. Congress had as well put us into a yellow jacket's nest." Nashville Banner "John Helms, of the Morfistown Gazette, predicts that East Tennessee will give a larger pro. portional gain over the last election, for Porter, than either of the other divisions of the State. What say Middle and West Tennessee to that? Hadn't we better all turn out, bringing the halt and the blind, the aged and infirm in wagons to the polls, and show East Tennessee what we can do when we bend our backs to it? Let us roll uo a maioritv next Tuesday week that will thrill the telegraphic wires and be felt in the nation to the end that the nation may be redeemed and recon structed by its centennial anniversary." The J. J. Noah mentioned by Wash ington dispatches as disputing Ex-Gov ernor I'arsons claims to the Federal Judgeship in Alabama, made vacant by tsusteed s resignation, was stationed at Columbia for some time after the war as an agent of the Internal Revenue de partment, and is a son of Maj. Mordocai Moah, who figured very prominently as a leader of the -New York Democracy twenty-five years ago. He is just the sort of a man Senator Spencer wants tor the place. He Leaves it lo the People. New York San. Grant wants to be re-elected, and whether by the Republican party or some new party makes little dinerence to him. At Chanute, Kansas, the other day. General T. K.Oone asked him bluntii; "Are you a candidate for the third term?'' The President did not seem inclined to reply, when General Cone turned" to those in attendance and said: coys, silence gives consent. lhe .President then quickly remarked: "I'll leave this to the people." After this he is not likely to say at present that he will not be a can didate. He is not easily scared, and his faith in his own luck is one of his strong est moral qualities. Besides, it would be too late. ILiA.TSTI SALE ! FIRST.
