FRIDAY, MARCH 1. 1001.
Elsewhere appears tin
nrocram of the Hardeman
County Farmer's Institute.
to he held at Bolivar, Satur-
, at i mi
day, Maich l()th. 1 he gen-
tlemen on tut program are
familiar with the subjects as
signed them, and we feel
sure that all who attend will
he profited by the discussions.
The Institute was oiganizd
onl" a few months ago, and
the attendance increases with
each meeting. Its sole ob
ject is to advance agricultu
ral interests in Hardeman
County, and every farmer in
the County is considered a
member, most cordially invit
ed to he present at the meet
ings and to take part in the
proceedings, whether their
names appear upon the pro
gram or not.
If Hardeman County is
detached from the Tenth"
Congressional District and
attached to the Eighth, it
will not he because the rank
and file of the democracy of
this County desires the
change, for they are content
to remain in the Tenth; nor
because the Eighth is anx
ious for the addition, as the
following1 editorial from the
Jackson Whig of February
22nd states:
The proposition to detach Harde
man County from the Tenth Con
gressional District and add it to the
Eighth, is not a popular scheme as
might be supposed. It is true that
Hardeman has a good democratic
majority, which might, at come
time, have been worth something to
the Eighth, but this district can be
regarded as safely democratic under
most all conditions likely to arise.
And then, in so far as population
is concerned, the district has all
that is needed and there is no reason
for making the change except for
political reasons. We do not be
lieve that Hardeman is particularly
anxious for a change, and taking the
several counties of the Eighth as a
whole, there is no .healthy sentiment
favoring the matter. The redisrict
ing committee should handle such
business as this gingerly, and not
listen too much to the dornands of
interested politicians.
Municipal Money Matters.
The following is the report of
the committee appointed by the

"J. L. K." in Nashville American
In speaking of the grand;
ovation given Jefferson T)a-j
vis on his appearance at the!
unveiling of the Confederate
.Monument at Montgomery,
Ala., in 1886, Gov. Thomas
Watts said of the memorahle
1 1
nistonc incident, in wmcn
Secretin ' Dana and Gen.
T., r , "
Miles figured so unenviahly,
, ,
and for which they have Lite
ly heen subjected to merited
"At the tahlc some one ask
ed Mr. Davis to unbosom
himself in the privacy of that
inner circle, and tell them of
his feelings and experience
during his incarceration at
Fortress Monroe. As Mr.
Davis told the story of his
imprisonment and the out
rage perpetrated on him when
they put him in irons, his
eyes Hashed, and, drawing
himself to his full height,
he said, his voice quiv
ering with emotion:
" 'Gentlemen, when I saw
them bringing the shackles,
knowing how helpless I was,
I resolved to submit quietly
to my fate. But as the ac
cursed things touched my
hands, realized that they
were not meant for me, hut
for the South, for my people;
and God help me! I struck
the villian who bore them to
the earth! And it was on ly
when brute force had over
come me that they wrought
their will upon nie.' "
The doughty Dana made
true report that Mr. Davis
was imperious in demeanor
when put in duress, and that
he resisted violently the tin
warranted and cruel mana
cling of his limbs. No other
conduct was possible to the
high-born gentleman that he
was, the dauntless Chieftain
of a devoted and chivalric
Mr. Davis . was captured
May 10, 1805, and after two
weary years of militaryT pris
on life doubtless the unhap
piest period of his entire ex
istence he was liberated on
bond May 13, 18G7; the great
souled Horace Greelv becom
ing his bondsman. He was
brought to trial, a nolle pros
equi having been entered by
the Government in December,
18G8. He was also included
in the general amnesty of that
month; but his political disa
bilities were never removed,
and it is said he died without
a country Dec G, 1880. I
hold, as do man' thousands,
that Jefferson Davis ha a
country this beautiful, and
glorious and heaven-favored
Southland, to which he no
bly consecrated his all. He
is enthroned high in the
hearts of the people as one of
their most beloved fellow
citizens, as a mighty prince
in their Israel; and with sa

Andrew Johnson.
'Savoyard" in Nashville Banner. ' j
When Tenuessee makes her con
tribution to our national valhalla,
no doubt, the Ktatues of Andrew
Jackson and Andrew Johnson will
be added to those that now grace
"Statuary Hall" in the United
Slates capitol. They were no ordi-!
nary men anil they illustrated the
exalted possibilities of American
citizenship. They sprang from the
ranks and attained to the highest
station in the gift of the freest,
most enlightened and most progress
ive people in the history of man
kind, now become the mightiest
and most opulent nation of the
earth. - !
There is about the capitol an el
derly gentleman, a cultivated man,
from East Tennessee, who is full of
reminiscence of the political strug
gle of the ante bellum period. In
those days he was a Whig, a follow
er of John Bell and James C. Jones,
a co-worker with William G. Brown
low, Thomas A. R. Nelson and
Horace Maynard. And though op
posed to Johnson, he is fully con
vinced that, save in the person of
Abraham Lincoln, no slate in the
Union has yet produced Lis full
match as a tribune of the common
people. Every impulse, every con
clusion of the man was for the mass
es. He was one of the people, and
he acted the part because it was his
nature to act it and the people saw
in him their own. He was the fa
ther of the American homestead sys
tem and every pulsation of his heart,
every aspiration of his soul, was for
the ennobling of American citizen
ship. He honored toil, for he was
a laborer; he respected the burden,
for he had borne it. He had eaten
the honest bread of poverty and
been the honored guest in many a
lowly cabin.
From scenes like these old Scotia's
grandeur springs;
That makes her loved at home, re
vered abroad."
Johnson's race for Governor
against Gustavas A. Henry in 1853
was one of the most excitiug con
tests in our political annals, not sur
passed iu thrilling interest by that
between Wise and Flournoy in Vir
ginia in 1855, or the canvass of Illi
nois by Lincoln and Douglas in
1858. Johnson had been in Con
gress ten years and the Whigs de
termined to get riil of him. They
gerrymandered him into a Whig
district and the Democrats nominat
ed him for Governor. The author
of the gerrymander was Henry, then
a member of the State Senate. The
Whigs nominated Henry for Gov
ernor anil the two held joint discus
sions '"from Bristol to Memphis."
Henry was a fervent orator one of
the most captivating stump-speakers
of his day, the golden age of stump
oratory. Few men bad greater sway
over an audience, but that influence
did not last. The effect of his most
successful effort was dispelled al
most before its echo died away.
The following day the Whigs would
boast of the skinning Henry gave
Johnson; but no Whig, not the
most cultivated, could tell a point
his champion had made. On the
other baud the most lowly cottager
of the Eastern mountains, when he
returned to his humlile cottage,
could, and did, tell his wife and
children what Johnson said and all
the eloquence and all the logic of
all the Whigs of all Tennessee
could not extirpate the plantings of
Andy Johnson in the confidence and
esteem of the plain people of the
State. Two years later he defeated
Meredith Gentry, and the superb
orator, for Governor.
It was by slow degree that John
son rose to eminence. lie Tought
his way to the front. One of the
men he defeated for Congress was
William G. Brownlow and every
body knows that was a fight worth
going miles to hear. There was in
East Tennessee in those days a
mountain orator of the Cicero ilk.
In his speech were gorgeous sun
beams, babbling brooks, dulcet mu
sic and so on. He was the uncle of
Bob and Alf Taylor, and when Bob
was iu Congress he used to enter
aiu his committee by the hour de
claiming passages from the orations
of his maternel uncle, Laudou C.
Ilavne. lie, too, was a Democrat!
and anxious to be returned to Con
gress. Johnson was in his way and
Hayne ran an independent race
against him. The tradition is that
Hayne charged that Johnson had
agreed to give way to him if Hayne
would not enter the race two years
before. Johnson answered that it
was true Hayne had given way, but
he had been paid 800 for it. Hayne
further charged that ,4Deist" was
written on Johnson's brow and
quoted some skeptical remarks he
thought he had discovered in one of
Johnson's speeches in the State Leg
islature years before. Johnson an
swered that if it were lruc that he
were a Deist, which he denied, he
had never been expelled from the'
Methodist Church on motion of
William G. Brownlow and asked;
Hayne if he could say as much.'
Though the Whigs endorsed Ilaynej
it availed nothing. Johnson had
too firm a hold on that mountain j
constituency for personalities such j
as those to endanger his seat in the
national councils, lie was trium
phantly elected,, and became the
pride and the hope of the Tennessee
No man ever loved the Union of
the American stales more devotedly,
or more unselfishly, than did An
drew Johnson. The impeachment
proceedings against him in 1SG8 was
one of the outrages of American
politics. It was the good genius of
the American people that prevailed
in that greatest of American state
trials. The country will ever be
graleful to those Republican sena
tors who sank the pariisan in the
judge. Of all the accusers, Benja
min F. Butler was the only one
who got any glory out of it. The
trial left Bingham, Boutelle and Lo
gan in worse condition than before,
in that it revealed " to the country
how infinitely below Butler the
greatest of them was as a lawyer, as
a statesman and as a party leader.
Stevens may not be considered. He
was on the verge of the grave during
the whole of the trial. His speech,
or the greater portion of it, was
read by another, and there were on
ly few passages of it that were re
minders of the virile old giant who
had led the House through the
stormiest epoch of our history. But
the future historian who shall deal
with the impeachment of Andrew
Johns'm owes Stevens a great debt
in that it was he who forced Butler
on the others as one of the managers
on the part of the House of Repre
sentatives. Old Ben was both hat
ed and feared and not considered as
altogether respectable; but Stevens
knew that Butler had more brains,
more impudence, more audacity,
than all the other Republican man
agers together, himself excluded,
and he further knew that it requir
ed a combination of brains, audaci
ty and impudence to impeach the
President of the United States on a
charge of bad manners, for that is
what they impeached Andy for. It
was well for the country that it fail
ed. American history, when it is
written, as it will be. revealing the
truth as it was. and giving every
man his proper station, will disclose
Andrew Johnson among the front
rank of our very great men.
