Self-praise is said to be half scandal,
yet we cannot refrain from a few words
in our own behalf. e teel a lust pride '
r. the appearance of the Journal this
morning. We can't help it. We have
-pent days and nights of wearing toil and
everish anxiety to build up an estab

lence. No one, at least, can justly ac
euse us of not making the best possible
ise of our facilities and resources to
wards accomplishing that object. But
vhile we are not unmindful of our own
exertions, we do not forget the liberality
of our kind friends, through whose pa
ironage and neighborly assistance we
have been enabled to weather many
stormy capes, and to steer through not a
ew ''close places." We shall endeavor
:o prove ourselves worthy the continua"

To our advertisers, who have been un

we tender our thanks. We promise them

have never advertised, we suggest they

H. H. Schutz, a steady and reliable
workman, to take charge of the paper as
oreman, and he will devote especial at
tention to classifying and displaying Ad
vertisements to the nest advantage.
To our readers ye will say, we shall

Still the reports roll in of rebel hosts
marching and concentrating upon Gen.
Roseerans. From all parts of the
outh wherever a refugee or deserter
finds patient listeners and voracious re-
porters we hear of rebel armies march-

that, witnin a very few days, the whole

Take care f the Artillery,
Col. Frybarger, who has charge of all
the artillery in the State connected with
the Indiana Legion, is riow visiting onr
city tor the pncpofee'oi-inspecting our
artilh-i y compaxnjes and placing them on
a more orh.;ient 'boting. He has visited,

and established the
artillerv branch of
the service, scatten 1 along the river,
upon a war footing, so far. at least, as
the furnishing of cannon and equip
ments can accomplish that end. It is
his intention, we learn, to organize two
four-gun batteries in our city and equip
them throughout. One of these batte.
, ries, we presume, will be assigned to the
Union Artillery Company, ami the other
to Capt. Rimroth's comaany. The bat
teries will be
furnished with everything '
to make them complete and effective,
except horses. These, it is supposed,
will be furnished by patriotic citizens
should any sudden change call the bat
teries to the Held.
But it is folly to scatter cannon and
! equipments along the border of the State
j unless they are properly taken care of.
To simdly stow them away in some rick
ety old shed where the rats and dirt and '
rust can prey upon them at will, and !
! where now and then some hard-pushed
horseman can borrow a saddle or such
pieces of harness as his pressing neces
sities may demand, never remembering,
wuuc, io return the same is to
throw the money of the State away. If
Governor Morton kindly provides cities
and towns along the border with the
means of defense, it is due to him it is
due to their safety that those means be
properly taken care of.
The equipments for artillery are very
costly and easily ruined. Harness, un
less properly taken care of, is soon de
stroyed. In the first place, therefore, a
good house ought to be provided in which
to keep the artillery and equipments;
and, in the next place, a good reliable
man should be employed to look after
them and keep them in order. Hitherto,
in our city, these things have been some
what neglected, and the consequence is,
our artillery is not always in that state of
readiness for service, our exposed situa
tion demands. The citizens of Law
rence had little warning for preparation.
The citizens of our own State were as
saulted by Morgan before they had ac
knowledge that an enemy was near.
The vicissitudes of war are sudden, and
should any misfortune befall the Army
of the Cumberland, we might have the
rebels upon us before we could get things
in readiness to give them a suitable re
ception. We urge upon the Council, therefore,
as the Representative of the citizens, the
necessity of" providing some good, dry
place in which to keep the batteries sent
here by the Government. We would
keep it in order, and to prevent its being
used for other than its legitimate pur
pose. This, of course, would not take all
of even one man's time, and should be
paid for in proportion to the amount of
work done. If this matter is left solely
in the the hands of the companies, the
artillery will not be preserved as it ought
to be, for the companies are composed
almost entirely of poor laboring men,
who haven't the time to spare, necessarv
to keep everything in proper order. Be
sides, when there is no excitement, and
but few company drills, men and officers
naturally become careless, and do not
take that interest in the '' drudgery" of
! artillerymen, absolutely essential to keep
' a battery in good trim,
' These are but suggestions of our own,
' and W'H go for no more than thev are
worth; but we do think thev should be
: acted upon. v e understand that nthpr
cities have made arrangements of the
kind suggested, and expect to take care
of the State property sent for thir nrn-
j tection. Evansvilie, we are confident,
Wl11 not be behind in this particular.

i Wejl Tennessee ha v received
followin report ot the iiroceediiiirs
ot a meet in" ot I uion men held in tin
17th Civil District Hardemah county, on
the 29th ult. We would earnestly reeotii-
mtMiainoiracuonioinepc-i.pie everywncre
in our uivision oi me suue, aim respect
fully urre them to emulate the example.
Through the instrumentality of such
meetings as this, Tennessee may le j
speedily brought to enjoy the blessings of
peace, and material prosperity, by being
placed again under the action of consti
tutional law, uutramnieled by military ;
necessities. The rebellion having been !
entirely overthrown in our State, and
even far south of our borders, it only re
mains for the loyal men of Tennessee to
take the necessary measures to restore
her local government, when she will
again resume her position in the Union,
and recover from the blighting effects of :
anarchy and all its comcomitant evils.
The following resolutions were adopted
by the meeting;
Resolved, That we this day petition
and pray in good earnest to get home
again, by passing our once prosperous
and happy State into the great family of
the United States.
Resolved, That we ask Gov. Andrew
-Johnson to "'issue writs of election for
members of the Legislature," pledging
ourselves to support no man for any
office whatever, unless he be loyal.
Resolved, That we recommend to our
sister civil districts, in this county, to
hold public meetings, expressing like
' crto,-ana that we will atany
time meet them in county convention at
Bolivar, by sending representatives to
the same.
Resolved, That Moore Ray, Charles
McCommons and David Thompson be
appointed by us as delegates to attend a
county meeting at Bolivar, whenever
such a meeting is called.
From the United Irishman (Dublin) Aug. '29.
Irish Advice to Irishmen in America.
From the tone of the British journals
we are induced to believe that England
is at the bottom of the resistance to the
draft for the Federal army. It is quite
natural that men should be opposed to
conscriptions of the kind, and that, such a
measure would be more especially up
popular in a free country like America.
It is, therefore, the more easy to stir up
opposition to it. English gold is at work
in New York. Her emissaries are there
taking advantage of the popular preju
dices, and doing more damage to the
cause of the Union than if she had actu
ally recognized the independence of the
SnntViprn Srotp
The London Times has an article,
gloating over the anticipated resistance
of Gov. Seymour to the draft. It would
certainly be playing the game of the en
emy to perfection. England would give
the Governor am;,! i r-.ds sterling if
lie could be indue : . ke such a step.
It might tend to tie pu nidation of the
war, or the destruction oi the Union, but
most unquestionably to the complete an
nihilation of Irish influence in America,
and an end of all hope for the freedom
of fatherland in our generation. Let
tbeui stand, till the last, by the flag that
has been borne alongside their own in
battle, and under whose fold3 alone they
can find freedom and protection.
