populous State. Tho army and n-tvy
ot the United States, by a-hearty co
operation with tlio "loyalists" of that
day, soon overthrew tho insurgents.
Tlruir provisional governor Ttiotnaa
W. Dorr w&s captured, -denied tho
riht of a "belligerent,'' -anti Bent to
ih Penitentiary.
Tho Democratic party, the cause.
was alolislied, aud all snbsequcnt
olcctions have shown tbroughtout the
UniUd States, since when no speck
rebellion has been known within the
vust limits of that loyal State. The
rebellion in Utah, which occurred
during tho reign of Old Public Func
tionary, is too iccent to bo forgotton.
The cuuso is no doubt fresh in the
memory of -every maiden lady in the
.'oynl-Sttttcs. The republican instincts
of" our people would uot tolerate a
mouo'poly in heaven's ''last gift to
man." General Albert Sidney John
son was eont to Utah with i.istruc
tlona to conquer tho coningal spirit of
Biigham. the Morinou war ended
gloriously to our arms, lho cause
'.vas removed. Harems are now un
known among tho latter day saints,
and Briirhain. like some lone bird
without a mate, "refuses to be com
furteJ." In Europe, protracted aud
sanguinary civil wars have oiten ro
suited from differences of opinion m
regard to tho true mode of construing
thoUible, and especially concerning
the operations oV 1io Holy Ghost.--
They have tailed to abolish tho ono or
deoy tho other ; the result is that a
few countries in Europe maintain the
quiet which usually "prevails" alon
tho Rappahannock.
It should not be overlooked that ou
people wera very ignorant or they
would uevej have been deceived by
the treasonable enemies, North aud
South, of our noblo Prufident.
It was falsely charged that he and
h8 party mends did not desire to sup
press tho rebellion without first eub
verting the rights of the States; free
ing all the slaves and elovating thorn
to political equality with the whites
Cnr people, of course, being very
ienoraut, believed all theso fulso,
scandalous, and malicious atatements
and among the resolution! )0u will
adopt at your mooting, there should
be oao thanking his excellency, onr
most approved .President, for the
effectual meant ho has adopted to
give strength and moral (powor to the
Union men and women of tho South,
while at tho same time lie has shown
how wickedly laleo and liboluiis were
tho allocations of southern traitors
and northern Copperheads that lie
intended to use the armv and navv to
ribolish -slavery. The union men of
the South will ever gratefully cherish
the carao and memory of one who, by
a Bcrnpnlous regard ol his official and
other pledges, and bis manly adher
ence to tho Chicago platform, has
vindicated tho truth of all tho pledges
which from time to time are made on
bis behalf ; and the traitors and Cop
porheada who thus falsely charged our
great and good President with design
ing to subvert the institutions of the
Southern States, must henceforth bide
their faces in shame.
You should by no means fail to
adopt with wild acclamation, mingled
with a lew "bully halleluiahs," a reso
hition wverely denunciatory of those
who criticise our military operations,
or Bhow impatienco at the tardy
movements of our armies in South
Carolina and 'Virginia. Such criti
cism gives tho rebel?, "aid and com
fort," and, though it may not bo fel
ony without benefit of clergy, is,
nevertheless what Mr. Polk stigma
tizes as "moral treason," a crime
which our noble President and other
Whigs of that day were compelled to
"dry up," during the war with
Our present military discord is but
'harmony when understood." We are
abundantly able to beat tho rebels
whenever we try. At present we
Lave them completely surrounded
crowded into a small circumference
of not more than six thousand miles.
Our armies are guarding tho oatposts
of this cod traded line and every where
daring the pnsillanimous butternuts
to "pierce the center," and the ragged
wretches "take the dare." We have
forces at Galveston, New Orleans,
Pensacola, Hilton Head, Newbcrn.
Suffolk, all is quiet on the Black
water, tortress Monroo, on the Rap-
fiahanuock, at Baltimore, along the
ine of tho Baltimore and Ohio Hail
road, iu Western Virginia, in Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Fort Smith, and at
Vicksburg, in the very heart of the
. How long can the rebellion exist
when thus circumscribed? In addition
to all this, Adjutant General Thomas
a native of "my Maiyland, and who
last year was charged by tho malig
nant tonguo of slander with being a
secessionist aud traitor following
where such noble mon as Butler,
Brady, Dickinson, and other old
friends of Breckinridge dare to lead
is now in tho Southwest organizing
the loyal blacks, who, it is uuderstood,
are impatient to bo led against tho
barbarous hordes of Lee aud Beaure
gard. Northern philosophers, women
and divines, who regard the African
iis tho best normal representative of
the human race, end those who have
seen the sturdy mastiff quail before
the perfume oi a skunk, do not believe
tho dclicato nerves of tho rebels will
be able to withstand tho bayonet
charge from the Aoiericau soldiers of
African descent, if mado when the
stato of tho thermometer indicates
kutaoeous activity and corresponding
prespiration. Inno, howover, will
soon settle tho disputed quostiou.
You should further denounce nil
wh complain of the Array of the
Potomac. It has been in no sense a
failure. It has achicvod inoro than
any army in amiuiit or modem times
lins accomplished, under similar or
equal difficulties, lta bravory is un
questioned, and injustice is done to
itsUonerals. Ituo, jVlclloIlan,undor
tho influence of the fsorthern Copper
leads aided by BUeli llcouohcan fogies
as I uunow Weea and backed up by
the stupid graduates of West Poiut,
was Uit becoming a luvorite with the
army and the people; and it was
gravely hinted by some ot his bolder
adherents that he might bo used by
the Copperhead rratermty to Sup
plant our illustrious 1 resident in
1SC4. Besides, General McClellan
had commanded the Army of the
Potomac Ions: enough, "liotatiou in
oflieu" is a sound iolitical axiom. Ho
was therefore retired, although still a
favorite with the hravo men ho so
long commanded. General Burnside's
career lias beeu an eminently brilliant
one, and tho samo may bo said ol
General Hooker, who, I presume, will
soon retiro upon thu laurels he has so
nobly won. But in all this there is
strategy ; 'tis the result of that supo
rior genius and wisdom of our Presi
dcnt.who was "Commander-iu Chief,'
umes inferiors on the military chess
board with a skill which excites the
admiration of all who are truly loya
to tho administration. No harm can
tesult from all this. We have an
abundauco of leaden ready aud will
ing at t moments notice to lead the
Army ot tho Potomac to the reuc
capital. We have iu reserve, Butler
Phelps, Busted, and Lane; to eav
aothingof d Utassy, who, like tuiuio
met 'a coffin, ia still suspended betwoeu
the heavens and the earth.
I look in vain anions: the names
attached to your letter for oue which
recalls a familiar face. 1 do uot re
member that I liavo ever bad the
honor of a personal acquaintance
with any one of you, although in lor
mer times, 1 knetv many ot the lead
ing citizens of Memphis. among whom
are out a low who are still ardently in
favor of a restoration of the Constitu
tion. I regret to find none of thorn
associated with you ia the proposed
demonstration. But I will indulge
complaints. Whenovor our armies
have socurcd a permanent lodgement
in the South- as at Hilton Uead.New
Orleans, JNewbem, Nashville and
Memphis - tho Northern friends ol
our most excellent President have
supplied us abundantly with ranBt
disinterested meu and women, whose
loyal tongues are heard iu melodious
tones wherever we "hold, occupy and
possess ' a cotton or contraband settle
mcnt ih the Confederate wilderness
Look at Hilton Head, where the
North minglo upon sisterly terms with
the Palmeto-Atncan ladies of South
Carolina. A bountiful issue'of tracts
and catechisms will no doubt soon be
followed by an improved iasuo of
contraband -not so white as tho uoor
Anglo, not so black as the normal
African. In a few years they will
"Walk In tho bonuty like tho night
Of cloudlet climos and starry skies;
And all that's belt of dark and bright
Meut in their aspect and their (yea."
In North Carolina, Charles Henry
Foster. Esq., originally from Maino,
and a warm political friend ot Breck
inridge, has organized a rreo Labor
Association, and Governor Stanley
has gone back to California in disgust.
In Nashville we have a regular org
anized Abolition Society ; its organ is
tho same as that of tho State and
FederarGovernment, and the editor,
tho' imported from abroad,, is doing
more to sustain the glorious adimnis
tiation of President Lincoln than any
native born citizen of the State can do.
This abolition society, and this aboli
tion newspaper, although conducted
within the fortifications of the city, :e
doing no doubt very much to induce
the people of middlo Tennesaeo to
cease all further opposition to the wise
gentle, and constitutional rule of our
distinguished duel magistrate.
Ia Memphis the harvest is a tempt
ing one. vv un cotton at a dollar per
pound, and likely contrabands ''lying
around loose, our enterprising north
em friends who love the Union and
with it preserved under tho guarantees
of the Constitution may make a "good
thing of it." Already I hear of severa,!
who have farms in Kansas, Iowa, I!
nois, Indiana, and other "free States,"
which are now well tilled with negroes
who once belonged to the Union men
of the South. Facts like thc30 will
tend greatly to tho restoration of peace
and harmony, and materially aid in
removing tho prejudices which the
people ot the imurrectiouary States
have entertained the against thoir
northern kindred. They now know
that the war is not to be so conducted
as wantonly to deprive thorn of any
portion of their pioperty ; aud they
IMS' -
now have positive proof that southern
secessionists and ponuern copper-
eads. who charsod tnat the war was
to bo finally waned against the South
as a section instead of tho rebols and
their allies, lire guilty of falsehood.
Furthermore, there is a largo party
at tho North who havo porsistontly
refused to regard tho Atrican as tho
best representative of the humau raco.
This iuflux of negroes will do much
to change their opinions, aud by the
same means southern manners ana
costunis will become gradually intro
duced north of the Ohio and Potomac,
rendering tho people much, more
lomocneous than in former times.
Thus we will asaiu becomo a united
and lovinir people. The lion and tho
amb. the contractor ana tue contra
band, will lie down toother, and
then the millennium will have come.

RALLY FOR VALL AND PUGH. I. O. O. F. Demonstration on the 14th.
The Militia Elections, &c.,
On Saturday a large number of
our citizens were in town to celebrato
tho 4th. The I. 0. 0- Ps., of which
we believe there is a flourishing Lodge
hero, were out in respectable nnmbers.
Tho militia elections aUo h el pod to
swell the crowd. The day dawned
beautiful!, and in tho forenoon we seen
nothing but hearty congratulations of
friends and neighbors of ladies and
gentlemen, and Young America was
out in force with Crackers and inno
cent amusement. The juvenile fun
was hugely enjoyed by the boys. Tho
Brethren of the 1. 0. O. F., headed by
Siiockey'b Cornet Band, formed in
procession at about 11 o'clock and
presented a fino appearance. They
moved np Main and across to Mill
street, to the M. E. Church, where,
after an appropriate Prayer by Rev.
IIatuaway, and music, a man by
the uame of Blaib, said to be a Pro
fessor in Athens College, was intro
ducod as speaker on the occasion. We
had received an invitation from the
I. 0. 0. F. Lodge to be present and
dino with them, for which we return
thanks, beleiving that it was intended
in kindness; and beleiving as we do,
that the Order did not expect they
were to bo so basely imposed npon by
this Professor. We say up to this
time all was sociability, and the ut
most harmony and good fellowship.
But what a chango soon was to come
over oar dreams of good neighborly
filing, and social intercourse.
The Prolessor commenced his speech,
and such low billingsgate, and degra
ding epithets we never seen or heard.
It surpassed in its denunciations of
Democrats, and fulsome approvals of
every act of Lincoln right or wrong.
It was the lowest degraded political
speech we ever heard, and could
not have been surpassed by (he lowest
Pot house politicians. Republicans
wero astonished at it. Democrats
were denounced as Traitors, Sympa
thizers, Dwarf politicians and Cotton
Scavengers. It ;s perhaps not ont of
place hero to stato that we have been
told this Professor Las an interest at
stake in a certain cotton speculation.
We would bore say, in the langua
ge of a lady writer,on just such men as
Blaib, "Of all things low and un
principled) f all things abomniabi'e
and detestable of all things despi
cable and unworthy of a place in this
sinful world-Kf all things deserving
utter contempt, even from the Devil
Lying is the worst" We could
not beleive that this' Professor wonld
even so disgrace bis own meanness,
sa far turn himself into a spiritual
deformed monster,-as to take npon
himself the obligation of aa honorable
crd.-r.ut whose very lure

and religious cilkrence,,v.j..io tafx-
ged in.the exorcises of the order, and
whose exercises were not to mtenero
with any members politics or Jiis re
gion. Little did the Order here
think that this Professor would add
to his lying speech the guilt of moral
perjury. , But, reader, here is the
points of the speech.
tie commenced by saying mat -tne
awful crisis we wero in required all
men. at all timeB. to lay aside all
partizan fuelmgs, and labor for the
mainteuauce of the cause of our coun
try," that was, as he plainly showed,
tor the Abolition party. Lie cuarac
terized the Democrats, who are office
seekers, I rovo Marshals, &c,
"thoso who went round making
mouths at tho President until lie give3
them au office, thoso were tho Leech
es," evidently showing a feeling on
the part of the speaker .hat too many
Democrats wero gottingashareoftbe
spoils, and stealing or tue aaminis
tration. He "was opposed to party,
it was tho bano of this nation," we
agreed with him, when such partizan
fanatics as this Blair and his party
gets into power. He said "if tue
noblo, honest. Colonel Stanley had
justice done Lira, ho ffould be wear-
ins the badge ot a General." it seems
old Ace don't even please this wolly-
headed Professor, ot Athens. In order
to get the confidence of his bearers
ho said he "had not unfrequently
voted with tho Democrats that he
was onco called a Butternut." He
stated that the "real issue now between
the North aud the South was slavery."
wo agree with him, and when we
have eaid that this has been po verted,
from a war to maintain the Constitu
tion and Union, and that it is now a
war for the freeing of the slaves, we
have been called a Traitor, and a
southern sympathizer. This Profes
Bor Blair admits it, and called upon
the people of V inton county to meet
it as such, in this languago : "Then
as slavery is the real germ of our
difficulties, yon men of Vinton Co.
want to know it, and meet it as truo
patriots." This woolly-hea'l did not
know that the most of onr Republi
cans are ail denying that they aro in
favor of Emancipation. lie said the
rebellion was not owing to Abolition
discussion, it had been discussed from
the days ot Fbanklin and Wither-
spoon, it had been the theme of Clay
and Webster.'' But tho Professor
did not tell his audience that when it
was discussed, that those men always
catue together and compromised cm
the question. ''Slavery was feeble
in the early history of this country,
and prohibited in the territories."
Indeed 1 was it feeble when it was
established by the acts of tho British
Parliament, and the clergy of that
cny I and scarcely a cesentor in the
Colonies. Was it prohibited in the
territories, when we had no territories?
Was this superlative ignorance on
the part of the Professor, or was he
merely playing the knave ? to thus
lie to the people. "The Democrats by
an an awful conspiring with slavehol
ders brought on the war for Texas, the
Fugitive Slave law, &c., attempting
to dedicate all the territories toslavery,
hence the breach between the Demo
crats North and South : hence the
Fugitive Slave Law aud tho Dred
Scott decision, was affirmed at the
North, tho teason, in answer to this
hell born us ien, we sayi slavers was
the cause."
Reader, the Fugitive Slave Law is
only carrying out a provision of the
Constitution. One was signed by
Washington, now we find this im-
maculato Professor appealing to a
higher law ; the Uunstitution don t
suit him. At this effort of the Pro
fessor, some of the audience clapped
hands and stamped their feet , winch
was freely mingled with hisses. "The
South rebelled in 1812 on the tariff
question." In this, history says the
Professor lies, as it was 1832. By
his figuring up-, he had Jackson
President in 1812. Another import
ant discovery this Professor makes
among his fossils, is the fact that
California was admitted as a free State
on condition that the North except
the Fugitive Slave Law." lie had
before told us, it was adopted as a
law because tho Sonth wanted slavery
in the territories. "Under a Demo
crat President, tho Kansas bill was
passed, and the fight began ; the
officials of the President orgauized a
Pro-slavery government for Kansas."
Stop right there, l rolcssor, aud let
us hear if the Abolition Aid Socie
ties of New England, armed with
Sharp's Rifles, had cot set np a gov
ernment over the people of Kansas I
Judge Welsh, of Athens, saild in a
speech on our Court-house steps, that
he subscribed $25 to send Sharp's
rifles out to Kansas ; and said that he
would Bhoot the Government officers
down, if they attempted to interfere
with those who were defending the
free territories of the United States
from the curse of slavery. "After
failure by slave . power ia Kansas,
Leagues and oath-bouud secret socie
ties, were formed all over, the South
to carry on slave trade. &c. Then

Dr.i iicott Djcisiou. Iww, wa d;a
uot think thero was any ProteBSor in
tho United States, so ignorant, as not
to know that all State and national
Courts have uniformed held the
right of property In slaves ; even the
present Supreme uourt oi unio uas
so decided. Whon Cbasb, as Gover
nor, pottyfogged the caso with Alt'y
uen. molcutt, uy uauuiug uuu au
thorities and items of argument, for
two whole days. See Judge Peck,
mid bis associates decisious in tho
Clevoland kidnappers case Ohio
reports. The Professor says, "It is
this ruthless and inhuman oligarchy,
that is tho cause of all our troubles."
It was caused by such mon as this
Profeseor, attempting by higher law,
revolutions, and disregard of moral
and official obligation, setting the
Constitution and laws at defiance, by
attempting, contrary to Constitution
and law, to force tho people of tho
South to free their slaves, and in sus
taining Lincoln in this mad fanatical
scheme of Emancipation, which is
nothiug but abolishiog slavery ; and
hence is abolition.
"Tho South oro opposed to Free
speech, Free press, Common schools
ami- Religion the pistol and Bowio
knife regulate their law and order."
This is the same old revamped aboli-'
tion story that we have been heating
for tho past twenty-five years from
these fuuatics. This man then eays,
that the Richmond Examiner actu
ally claims the negroes a subordinate
race, that tLo Sounthern Confederacy
holds to the distinction between the
whites and blacks inferior raco, &e."
Here tho Professor's feelings over
came him, and ho exclaims, "God
bless Lincoln 1 what a noble, honest,
glorious President. Lincoln stands
on the integrity of the Union, with
Jackson, Jefferson, Clay, and Web
ster." Why this nigger-head should
thus attempt to disgrace the illustrious
dead, by comparing a man to them,
who has on so many occasions, disre
garded his oath and trampled tho
Constitution of his country under foot,
is more than we could tell, unless it
was to provoko a breach of the paaco
on the part ot all honest men who
were present.
This fanatic concluded by saying,
'any man thatwas a true patriot wou'd
hold up the hand of the men in autho
rity. I f the Democracy get into pow
er it will bring on our State contempt
aud 6cnrn, aud be a lasting disgrace
upon the people. If Lincoln fails the
Nation fails. Think of tho manner of

uents aud rentiles Oath bonnJ leas-era
and secret sworn assassins, and bow

the circumstances, Oh God bleiB him.
How like the Son of Mary (so he is
Christ Lincoln as well as Washington
and J&ckaon) he bore the cross aud
will arise like him after ho had laid
In the grave three days. lie will
arise in glory and such men as Val
landigham and Olds, will pass away
with the contompt and scorn of tho
people, and he will finally raise in tho
honer and glory of the Nation sus
tained by the noble Brough and Stan
ton, who will do thoir duty. Look
around over your hills and Valleys,
Streets and Allys, and when you see
little mean men crying Peace and
giving evidence of other sympathy,
with Traitors mere Dwarf patriots
aud Cotton scavengers, say to them,
as one of old, depart yon cursed, I
know you not ; and be norved to so
say, by the death groans of your dy
ing sons on the battle fields. The
Bouth bccU at your peace convention,
as the rosult of Cowards, &c, merce
nory knaves, who cry Peace to cover
np their sympathy for rebols."
The Professor then concluded
with Broughs application in his Cleve -land
speech,of a quotation from Othel
lo. He would say with Othello when
stabing his wifo to the heart in a fit of
madnebS caused by jealousy. "She
must die or she will die troy more
men." We thought the application ,
in Borne respects a good inn, though
not quoted correctly, Othello was mad
crazy, so was this Professor. Othello
was jealous of Desdomonia, so was
this deciole of Lincoln of the Demo
cratic Pary. Poor souls they die
hard. The object of Othellos revenge
was innocent, so are the Democracy.
Othello stabed the wife of his bossom
his true friend, so wonld this Professor
every Democrat, trne friends of the
Union, if ho bad the power. Thus
ended the speech, many of the order
was apposed to such a speech, and
many who are supporters of Lincoln
condemed it aa out of place. It was a
gross fraud upon the people lor the
reason it was ' not gave ont that we
n n 4nt.nnA am A t 1 1 . Hflfi null 1f,a
a demonstration of the order. ; Hence '
it was a crowd obtained, .under false
pretence for the purpose of insulting
a great portion ofthem. Not t the
Odd Fellows as we believe, but by
some of the Republican wire workers.
