The administration of Franklin Pierce stands
' condemned by a Tennessee witness, of requir
ing an applicant for a petty mail ageDcy to
FBOMI8B TO DEFEND THE CaTHOI.IO ChCKCH.
And yet, of eucli is tbe party which u crying
oat against Americans upon the false charge
that they are in favor of religions proscription.
Bead the fallowing statement which has been
published in three or four papers in East Ten
That in a discussion at Loudon, between Messrs.
Blackwell, Anderson and Lillard, candidates for
Congress, a few weeks ago, Mr. Liliard stated that
be visited Washington city iu 1853, and made ap
plication for tbe appointment of mail agent on tbe
East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad, and that tbe
Post Office Department required of him before it
would give Lira tbe appointment, that he MCST
promise to defend the Calliolie Church"
The Atbeu9 Post says in re-publi6bing this
statement, with a correction we have inserted
What Lieut Lillard has said on the subject, be
stands ready to make good at any time. It will
hardly be necesary, however, to recur to the sub
ject again, as it has always b.-en the practice of tbe
Catholic party to qoection tbe veracity and try to
blackeu the character of all who refuse to yield a
blind and slavish obedience to iu behests, or pre
sume to doubt the infallibility of its teachiog. Its
assaults are barnilc&a, aa the Protectant public know
precisely how much importance to attach to them.
Americans, is it not time to pause and pon
der! Why was Mr. Postmaster General Camp
bell appo:s:d to that responsible and influen
tial poeitioLf It has been charged that the
place was secured to him by a bargain, and
as the price of the Carbolic vote for Pierce.
We do not assert that this charge is true, but
we do most unhesitatingly say we believe it to
be true. Why? We will give one single rea
son, which is enough to satisfy the mo&t incred
ulous. Hon. Kenneth Raynkr of North Carolina,
in a public speech at Washington City on the
21st of June, made the following statement:
Our late Miniitter to Spain, Mr. IUrringer, stated
to me. in Baltimore, that the Pope's Nuncio at the
Court of Spain, said to him, before tbe news of the
formation of Pierce'a Cabinet reached there, "I can
tll van nnm man that will be in the Cabinet. That
will be Mr. Campbell of Pennsylvania, as a member
of the Catholic Church."
"Mr. Campbell of Pennsylvania, AS a mem
ber of the 0 ttholic Church P Not as en
American citizen and freeman, independent of
all religious influence, but "a a member of the
Catholic Church" at a servant cf the rope of
Rome! How well Mr. Campbell is fulfilling
his part of the obligation may be inferred from
the disclosures of Lieut. Lillard. He is cer
tainly assiduous in his attempt to spread Ro
manism, and promote the power of the Pope, i
when he presumes to approach a free born J
Tennesseean with a proposit ion to sell bimsell
to a defence of Catholicism for a miserable
Mail Agency !
Amebioans! we say again pause and re
flect. An important issue awaits your action

Oar readers will be rejoiced to learn that
the controversy between Col. S.NEEnand Capt.
Pakbons, candidates for Congress in the Knox
ville District, has boen adjusted by the proper
partioa. Col. Sueed is now the nominee of
the American party in that District, for Con
gress. We extract the subjoined article from
Jie Knoxville Register of the 5th in addition
lit which tbe Knoxvillo Standard (anti-American)
of tbe same date says: "Cunt. Jo. Parsons
is olf the) track." With harmony and concert
a victory in the 2d District will be easy aud
from the Kuoxvill Register, July th.
"United we Bund."
With pleasure we run up our complete ticket

ashamed. And now, forgetting what is past, let

common cause. The victory ia ours, if we will euly

- Public Speaking at Carthage.
On the 1st Monday in this month, the can
didates for Senate, Floater, and county Repre
sentative addressed tbe people at Carthage.
- A correspondent writes as follows of the speech
of Col. De jutte, candidate for Floater :
"Col. Dewitte of Macon, candidate for floater, led
off in a speech of some length, though quite on
welL I can say with truth, a more powerful argu-
- ment eloquent and convincing on the great Am eh-,
ica doctrine I have never heard. Do U a young
man a lawyer of eminence self made commenc
ed his career in life poor and almost without educa
tion, fie promises to be useful With practice he
will make one of the most accompHahed orators of
tbe day. Ilia dignified deportment, urbane man
ners, and hia store of nseful knowledge, and bis
superior gift of oratory, will rank him in the next
Legisktare of Tennessee pne of the first young
men of the age. He is winning a tame and repu
tation which any man of hU age might feel proud
of. Our political horizon is bright Sam la proud,
and winnis bis laurels every day."
"; ISTTrotn the Rochester (N. Y.) American,
a conservative paper of very high respectabili
ty, we clip the following: '
An Oath as is an Oath.
A recent number of the Drogheda Argut, an
Irish Roman Catholic paper, contains the following
statement in reference to iu countrymen in the
United States :
" Tbe conduct of too many of our countrymen
wro have emigrated ia anything but what it ought
to have been, and as a necessary consequence, the
well-disposed are often confounded with tbe turbu
lent. Bigots find arguments in the foolish and
irreligious associations into which many Irishmen
allow themselves to be entrapped."
That journal proceeds to give the following oath
which it is asserted that the Irish Catholics take
when joining a Secret Society, existing here aa well
as in Ireland :
"I, Tatrick M'Kennan, swear by Saints Peter and
Paul, and by the Blessed Virgin Mary to be always
faithful to tbe society (Ribbon) to keep and conceal
all its secrets ; and its words of order ; to be always
ready to execute the commands of my superior
officers ; and as far as it shall lie in my power to
extirpate all the Protestants, and walk in their blood
to the knees. May the Virpin Mary and all the
saints help me. To-day, the 2d June, 1853. Pat.
M. Kennan, from Tydavcnete, county Monaghan."
The Drogheda paper gives publicity to this beau
tiful little obligation in order to complain that such
oaths "render nugatory all the efforts of our
(Catholic) Clergymen to comvat Know Nothingism."
The American CJt, a Roman Catholic organ
published in New Tork, says iu reference to the
We would respectfully caution the Irish editors
against giving credence to statements damaging to
tbeir countrymen in America; we have enough to
contend against, without having them quoted in
testimony against us.
Sensible! Why will "Irish editors" let such
cats out of the bag to scratch and bite the innocent
" Ribbon men" in America, who have so much "to
contend against ?"
The Way to Make Voters,
Preparatory for the approaching election in
South Carolina, the foreigners are crowding
the City Court, demanding their naturalization
papers. The Charleston Courier contains the
following table of results for three days of last
On Tuesday, 1
On Thursday, . . . . . .
Total in three davs 124
Here are one hundred and twenty-four for
eignors most likely nine out of every ten ig
norant and bigoted, and the ready-made tools
' of any designing demagogue that may come
along, invested with the responsible trust of
intelligent freemen placed upon a level with
the children of those venerated heroes who
spent their lives and fortunes to secure onr
present institutions, and without having the
faintest conception of the valuable privilege
with which they are entrusted, ready to go to
the polls and vote according to the tuggestion
of others. How else can they vote? They
are incapable of holding political opinions
while they are ignorant of the science of re
publican government. Fresh from the tram
mels of despotism, they have hardly had time
to surfeit upon the physical comforts with
which they are surrounded comforts which
are to them really as luxuries compared with
their condition in Fatherland and they are
called npon to rule in America.
Can any intelligent foreigner, who has
j w i
lived long enough here to understand and
appreciate the value of our institution, and
to become attached to them, be willing to
see bis destiny entrusted to the control of
6tich men? We believe there is not one bnt
will answer in the negative. Let the oppressed
from other climes flee to our shores, and amid
our flourishing cities, npon onr great works,
and from our futile plains draw a generous
support, sitting nnder their own vine and fig
tree, with none to molest or make afraid. Rut
while we would grant them all these privile
gesvaluable to tbetn in the highest degree,
and well worth the seeking we must iuskt,
for their own as well as for our safety, that
they shall leave to Americans the privilege of
making laws, at least until such time as they
are better prepared to assist in the responsible
Rut look to tbe fact with which we started
' out The aaiue system ia at work in Tennes
see. Voters are being mannfactnred daily to
boat the American ticket. Therefore, let every
true American be ready to kill such votes with
two for "Sam" and his principles.
Let the Democrat remember that It has already
been anuounced by the Know Nothings, that if,
they have tbe Legislature they will elect a Senator
in place of Gov. Joues. Union and American of
Ullto are "the Know Nothings" that have
made such announcement? We have seen no
announcement by any body that the Know
Nothings "will ekect a Senator in place of
Gov. Jones." TFAo said It, and when and
where? An iodidvidual, here and( there, may
have expressed an opinion that no matter
vhu-h party shall have the power, a Senator
will be olected and this, or something like it,
is, we presume, all the foundation our Leigh
bom will find upon iveatigation, for their very
positive and formal aswrtion. The election
of a Senator d es not neceasat ily follow from
such an exprwsion of opinion., or a thousand
such. The Know Nothings, -we preanme, will
be quite too shrewd to raise the question thus
prematurely f electing or defeating any par
ticular man for Senator. They w ill not, we
take for granted, be lured into stich folly, even
by thia nice little mm of the Union and Anunr
wan. Tins attempt to diive the entering
wedge of dissension In our ranks, like all Its
predecessors, ia di-tined to prove a signal fail
t ve a proti Jess speculation. Try somo other
key note, neighbor. ' ' ''-.
The True Whig thinks that Got. Johnson "slan
ders and villifiea a large portion of bis constituents.'"
If the True Wliig could answer a fair question, we
should like to hear it candidly say, if, in all its ex
perience it has ever known or heard of a pubUc
man who has been as rhamelessly and as unceas
ingly slandered and villified by his opponents as has
beea Gov. Johnsor during this canvass? With an
experience running back over many year of party
conflicts, we have never witnessed anything to
compare with the groseness and reclessness of the
assaults to which Governor Johnson has been sub
jected since the canvass opened Union atui
We beg the Union and American to specify
just a few of the slanders and reckless assaults
to which Gov. Johnson has been subjected in
this canvass. tVe have been and still are of
the opinion, that in proportion to bis deserts,
Gov. Johnson has been the most kindly treated
candidate we have ever seen in the field.
Many men of his own party cen be found to
endorse (he sentiment of his opponent, Col.
Geutry, that in proportion to his talents, lie ia
the most mischievous man of the age. And
were it not for the fact that the defeat of a
party will be involved in the defeat of Andrew
Johnson, and that for the sake of sustaining
party, devoted partizans do not hesitate to
swallow him head and ears, with all hia agra
rian, demagognical isms, hisdescentto merited
obscurity would be even more signal than it is
destined to be in- August , next. It is useless
for the Union and American to attempt to
palm off Andrew Johnson a second time upon
the people of Tennessee. . Even though sugar
coated with all the strong ties of party at
tachment, he never will stay upon their
stomachs again. They bavp sickened of him
severely. Even those leaders or the anti-
American party who feel constrained to strike
occasionally a blow for the success of their
party, say very Tittle or nothing of Andrew
Johnson. Even the editor of the Union and
American himself cannot support him with
that zeal and enthusiasm so necessary for suc
cess in such a cause.
But again, we ask the Union and American
to specify some of the slanders and villifications
which have been uttered against the candidate
of the anti-American party, and the author of
the politico-religious theory of Jacob's Ladder
convergence? We have a curiosity to hear
A Poor Excuse.
We caught the Union and American dealing
in small potatoes the other day, and we give
below its defense. We charged it with pub
lishing an extract from a speech of Mr. Barker
of New York on the 10th of June, crediting it
to the New York Timet of May 2-ith. and then
re publishing the same extract on last Friday
morning, stating that it was delivered 6ince
the disruption of the Philadelphia Convention.
The tone of the extract suited very well the
purpose of the Union and American, which
was to produce the impression that the Amer
ican party in New York did not approve the
Philadelphia platform. Unfortunately, how
ever, it was delivered in May, and long before
that convention met, and the fact had been
stated editorially, in the Union and Ameri
can of Juno 10th. But a desperate course re
quires a desperate defense. The extract was
re-published with a bran new preface, Btating
that the speech from which it was taken was
made iltince the disruption" of tbe Philadel
phia Convention. Hear how our neighbor gets
out of this dilemma:
"As to the extract from Barker's speech, we cop
ied it as wb found it in the Charleston Mercury, a
paper usually very accurate. We did not doubt
tbe genuineness of tbe extract"
Nobody has disputed the "gonuiness of the
extract." It is the accurateness of the edito
rial comments which we dispute. In one paper
it is stated that the speech was delivered at
one time, and in another, that it was deliv
ered at another time. The fact is pinned down
upon our neighbor, and he gets out of it by
talking about the "genuineness of the extract,"
trying to throw the responsibility npon some
one else. A most lame and impotent dodire.
For the Nashville True Whig.
The New Cemetery.
The recent announcement that a new Cemetery
was about to be opened in the neighborhood of the
city, was received by the public with great satisfac
tion. Feeling a deep solicitude in the matter, I have
taken the paius to make some enquiries in relation t
it, which I propose to make public.
As to the immediate importance of tbe proposed
measnre, there can be but one opinion. The City
Cemetery is too much surrounded by Railroads and
commercial operations to retain that air of quiet and
sanctity so much desired. Besides it is too nearly
filled up with graves to be much loDger used as a
burial place. It contains only about twenty -one
acres of ground, while the new Cemetery will have
about one hundred and twenty-five acres : or, it
will be six times as large aa the old Cemetery. This
is a material difference. The old Cemetery cannot
be extended, whilst the now one can be, to any
extent Aside from the advantage of being out of
tbe city, tbe new Cemetery is situated on a com
mandiug eminence, from which the city is iu full
view. It is to be called "Mount Olivet Cemetery,"
a name as handsome as it is appropriate.
I understand it is proposed to let our citizens take
stock to the amount of 10,000, the whole of which
is to be expended in beautifying and ornamenting
the grounds, after which a portion of the lots will
be offered fur lala. . The management of the Ceme
tery will be under tbe control of those who take
the stock. Such, in brief, ia tbe plan for com
mencing a magnifieent and extensive burial place,
commensurate with the wants of this and future
generations. SEXOL A.

To Messrs. W. B. Ewing, Hugh Carroll, S. S. Hall,
J. B. McFerrin, and J. II. Curry.
Gentlemen: Yours of the 29th of March came
to hand yesterday. You inform me that you 'were
appointed by the State Temperance Convention a
Committee to propound the following interrogatories
to the candidates for Governor of the State of Ten
nessee in the approaching canvass, viz :
"1. "Are you in favor of a law prohibiting the
Sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage ?"
2. " Will you, if elected, recommend, in your
message to the Legislature, tbe passage of such a
law at an early period in the session ?" And you
request me "to answer the above questions at an
early day." I proceed promptly to comply with
your request, by stating unequivocally what will be
my recommendation to the Legislature, on the sub
ject of your letter, in the event of my election to
the office of Governor of Tennessee.
I will recommend tbe enactment of a law pro
hibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors, in t-mall
quantities, except license shall have been obtained
tor that privilege which license shall be issued by
the Clerk of the County Court, only in cases where
application shall be made for tbe same in writing,
signed by tbe person applying, and by a majority of
the qualified voters of tbe civil district within which
he proposes to retail spiritous liquors. A law
founded upon this general principle, embracing in
its details provisions for its efficient execuiion,
would, in my opinion, speedily put an end to tip
pling in most of the civil districts of the State
and, at no distant day, iu all of tbem ; and would
be more effective in repressing tbe evils resulting
from the immoderate use of intoxicating liquors,
than any other that has been suggested theoreti
cally, or experimentally tested iu this State. Moral
reform, by this process, being accomplished .y the
people, acting for themselves in every civil district,
would be in harmony with the spirit of our free
institutions, and a beautiful illustration of the re
publican doctrine that man is capable of self gov
ernment; and would, therefore, be durable.
If all those who are aiming at a common object
with respect to a remedy for the evils resulting
flora the immoderate use of intoxicating liquors,
would concentrate their exertions during the ap
proaching canvass in favor of this policy, I believe
their efforts would be crowned with success, by the
enactment, at tbe next session of the Legislature,
of such a 1 w as I have indicated ; and great good
would be accomplished. By aiming at more, it is
highly probable that nothing will be achieved.
But, gentlemen, you know full well that the Con
stitution of Tennessee does not confer upon the
Governor of the State the power to veto acts of the
Legislature ; nor invest him with patronage to in
fluence tbe deliberations of that body. I thiuk,
therefore, that the interrogatories propounded to i
me, by you, would be more appropriately addressed j
to candidates for the Legislature. I have respou-1
ded, ouly to exhibit my respect for you, and that!
numerous and highly respectable body of citizens (
whom you represent.
Respectfully, your obedient servant,
M. T. GENTRY, j
Ilere, also, is Gov. Johnson's letter to the
same committee. Read it also, and preervo it
for reference if occasion should call for it. j
GOVERNOR J0n;.J0's ANSWER. j
Nashville, April 20, 1855.
Gentlemen: Your letter of the 29th ultimo, '
propounding two interrogatories to tue, in reference ,
to the passage of a law, by the next Legislature,
prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors as a bev
erage, has been received.
Tbe first of which is as follows:
" Are you in favor of a law prohibiting the sale ;
of intoxicating liquors as a beverage?"
The second "Will you if elected, recommend j
to the Legislature the passage of such a law at an :
early period in tbe session?" j
I am not sure that I understand the precise im- j
port of the first interrogatory; but if a resolution :
adopted by the Convention of tho freinds of Tern- j
peranee in Davidson County on the 14th of Febru
ary last, and by which Convention all of you were ap- i
pointed delegates to the State Temperance Conven- j
tiou which was to sit on the 22J of Fenru .ry, is to b-j !
taken as a correct interpretation of the first inter- i
rogatory which you have propounded to uic, and
ia as follows: j
" Resoloed, That as friends of temperance reform
and of the community in which we rcwide, we
pledge ourselves to vote for no man, for either ;
branch of the Legislature, who do?s not advocate !
and support the principles of the Maine Xuir, in
other word, a law prohibiting the manufacture of, 1
and traffic iu alcoholic liquors, with the nercessary
provisions and penalties lor the enforcement of the
same, and the euactmcut of such a law at an early j
day of the next Legislature of Tennessee":
I understand you as asking me directly wheth-l
er I am for or against a law commonly denon i ale I
the "Main Liq'mor Zaw." If thia ia the interrog- !
atory which you have propounded to rue, I ai swer
directly and explicitly that I am not In favor of the
"Main LiquorLavn aa the mode by which the ex-,
cessiveuse and saleofiutoxicatingliquoraare to pro-
hibited as a beverage, believing aa I do, that some j
of the leading provisions of that law are inconipati-
tht with the rights and privileges of freeman, and ,
as coming in conflict with t'e spirit, if not the very 1
letter of the Constitution tf the State, and if elected
Governor of the State cannot reccommend the
passage of such a law to the next Legislature.
I Lope that I have succeeded in making myself
understood, and that my answer may be eutirely ;
I will add, that vour letter would have been an
swered before thisl but for the prea of official and

FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A
There has long rxixtcd a publie demand for an
effective purgative pill whii h could be relied on oa
sure and perfectly safe in its operation. This has
been prepared to meet that demand, and nn exten
aive trial of it virtues has conclusively shown with
what success it accomplishes the purpose designed.
It is easy to make, a physical pill, but not easy to
make the best of all nils one which should have
none of the objections, but all the advantxiies, of
every other. This has been attempted here, and
with what success we would respectfully submit to
the public decision. It lias been unfortunate for
the patient hitheito that almost every purgative
medicine is acrimonious ami irritating to tbe bow
els. This is not. Many of them produce so much
griping pain ami revulsion in the system as to more
titan counterbalance the good to be derived from
tbrm. These jiill produce no irritation or pain,
unless it arise from a previously existing obstruc
tion or derangement in the bowels, lieing purely
vegetable, no harm can arise from their use in any
quantity ; but it is better that any medicine should
be taken judiciously. Minute directions for their
use in the sevpral diseases to which they ure ap
plicable are given on the hoi. Among the com
plaints which have been speedily cured by them, we
may mention Liver Complaint, in its vurious forms
of Jaundice, Indigestion, I'insuor and Loss of Ap
petite, Listleisiess, Irritability, Bilious Headache,
lions Fever, tever and Afjue, 1 ain in the JNile
and Loins ; f r, in truth, nil these are hut the con
sequence of diseased action in the liver. A an
aperient tltev alford prompt and sure relief in Cos
tiveness, 1'ihs, Colic, Dvsentery, Humors, Scrof
ula and Scurvy, Colds with soreness of the body.
View and impurity of the blood; in short, any
and everv case where a purgative is required.
Thev have als produced some sinv-nlarlv suc
cessful cures in Kheuniatism, Gout, l)ropy, (iravel,
Krvsipclas, Palpitation of the Heart, Pains iu the
Rack, Stomach, and Side. They should be freely
taken ill the spring of the year, to purify the blood
and prepare the system for the change of seasons.
An occasional dose stimulates the stomach nnd
bowels into healthy action, and restores the appe
tite and igor. Tliey purify the blood, and, by theii
stimulant action on the circulatory system, reno
vate the strength of the body, and restore the
ws'.sted or diseased energies of the whole organism.
Ilenee an occasional dose is advantageous, even
though no serious derangement exists; but un
necessary dosing should never be carried too far,
as every pumative medicine reduces the strength,
when Liken to excess. The thousand cases in which
a physic is required cannot le enumerated here, but
they sugt-est themselves to the reason of everv
body ; and it is confidently believed this pill will
answer a better purpose than any thing which has
hitheito been aailable to mankind. When their
virtues are once known, the public will no longer
doubt what remedy to employ when in need of a
cathartic medicine. Heing sugar-wmpped they are
pleasant to take, and being purely vegetable, n
harm can arise from their use m any, quantity.
For minute directions see wrapper on the liox.

This remedy haa won for itself snch notoriety
from ita cures of every variety of pulmonary disease,
that it is entirely unnecessary to roewnnt the evi
dences of its virtues in any community where it
has been employed. So wido is the field of its use
fulness, and so numerous the cases of its cures,
that almost everv aection of the country abounds
in persona publicly known, who have been restored
from alarming and even dewpcrate diseases of the
lungi by its use. When once tried its superiority
over every other medicine of ita kind is too appa
rent to escape obacrvation, and where its virtue are
known, the public no longer hesitate what antidote
to employ for the distressing and dangerous affec
tions of the pulmonary organs which are incident
to tmr climate. And not only in formidable at
tacks npon the lungs, but for the milder varieties
of Colis. CoroHs, Hoarsbxess, Ac; and for
Chiidrbx it is the pleasantest and safest medicine
that can be obtained.
As it has long been ia constant use throughout
this section, we need not do more than assure the
people iU quality ia kept up to the best that it eve
haa been, and that the genuine article ia sold by
