Tho .'jouibiana fiquabblu, it appears, waa a uptare, atand-up fight between ti e War moth and Grant Republican fnctioni.aud the latter, if not knock ad out of time, is eortamly badly crippled, batttrod and bmiced. The Cuitom-house iuve.sta. Uona in New York have developed Hucb nwindline and speculation as to almost put Tummany to the blus-h. No wonder ihe Administration Senators iu Conjjrcas exhibited such a fierce opposition to having this nest of corruption disturb ed. The beauty of it is, that the most damning disclosures come from influen tial Republicans like Groelny, who aru stripped for the fight against Grant Tllttn wn Iiava the uetinn ftf vjmmm . T . . . ... , . , Stato Lepislatures puttinK the seal of reprobation on the one-term principlotis bearing on the Presidency. Of courso this is aimed directly at Grant, and it is to bo hoped he will make a note of it. All th one things, in connection with tho damaging blows delivered by such men as Trumbull and Schiliz in the Senate, and the hostile tone of some of the most influential Republican journals in tho country, are significant of the drift of political ovoiits. The overthrow of the Grant Admin istration, it is quite apparunt, rests with the liberal or opposition KupuhlicauR. It remains to be seen whether the policy which demolished Kadiculisiu in Tt-ii- ueiiuo, Missouri nnd Virginia will bo al- j lowed fall play in putting a quietus on a dynasty that is disgusting the couutry - Sick. The New York World says that tho Seuntn Investigating Coniiuittccare sick of remaining at New Yoik, where ex posures accumulate, and wihh to get back to Washington. It says that the wishes of tho President havo been consulted as to the courso they sluill purwio.

Tim W.nld adds: If Loot I'hould be callud before tho commitleo, wo dare pay tho Democratic ! members are prepared to give him a dif ferent sort of probing from that admin istered by Senator Patterson's commit tee last winter. That cominitteo was not well enough informed to touch tho ten dor spots; Senators Casserly and Bayard are. They can put questions which will confound the witness, and tho answers to which, if truthful, will curry conster nation into the ranks of Grunt's suppor ters. And Loot's examination is con cluded, if tho committee will stay, there will be put upon tho stand men who, if questioned on the same points to which Lect ti'htitics, will disclose things at which tho Administration will stand Bghast. General Grant and his military King cau easily conjecture who these witnesses are, and to what they will tes tify. Their trepidation and alarm are easily understood by those who know the facts, and wo cannot doubt that damaging as a retreat of the committee to Washington would be, it is safer for Grant's friends to incur tho odium of choking off the investigation than to permit the forthcoming revelations. -- The Right Man iti the Right Place. Mil. Eiuroit: I was much ph ased to see and read tho excellent communica tion ot Col. II. IJ. Yearwood in your last issue concerning tho iimiguration of a County Fair in Monroo County. Of all the men of your county I know of none more suited to till tho important position of President of such an organi zation as Col. Yearwood. llu is emi nently qualified for tho trust contidod to him. In the first place he is a gentle man of commanding intelligence, nnd has a lavge share of that riro commodi ty called common sense. His views about everything are broad nnd comprehensive, and ho has a force of will to carry out and exocnto his purposos. This strong administrative ability will enable him to press forward his enterprise to a success ful issue. Ha wields a wonderful influ ence over iiinu in consequence of this very fact. I feel assured that if your oitizous will only do half their duty in the promises, you ueod have no cars about having a Fair in Monroe county tho comiug fall. But there is anothor consideration with regard to Col. Yearwood. Ha is passionately fond of stock and of the wholo system of farming. He knows what constitutes good stock, and lins tho good sense te raise no other sort. It will be remembered, at our last Fair, at Knoxville, that ho exhibited some very superior stock, and carried off a number of premiums. If ho lives to see the next one, I predict that he will eclipse, by far, his former self. And now I want to write one word more. Slonroe county is considered ono of the bost Counties of East Teuucssco, if not in the State. There are no liner lands, on this continent, in my judge ment, thou those in the vicinity of Sw eet water. Elsowhero, in your county, you have valuablo lauds. Jlany of your far mers are devoting themselves to rearing of thorough-bred animnl.i, among whom I might make honorablo mention of Col. Yearwood, Robt Hneud, the Lenoira and othors. This being so, do you not per ceive the necessity and importance of having a Fair f A county composed of as many good farmors as yours, ought, by all means, to take in tores t enough in this matter to have on extensive exhibi tion, not only of its stock, but of all tho product of the fann ami Knrili-n.

I have soen men brought to tho bar aud beg for tiial offering in order to secure it promptly, to introduce no witnesses, and uot even to cross cxamiue thoso introduced by the government. Alt this however was of no avail, for th? yovimmi'iit (?) in every instance declined to try tho canes. Now come tho query. Why were not such causes immediately disposed of? Tho only answer that a thinking and iutelligeut man can make is, that in caso of n failure to convict, tho District Attorney will only r;ot a feo of " 'r nw.ry raw com a . .. c"sts- ho 'v1h Uvouly costs, ho gets twenty dollars. This shows that it is merely a business opera tion, and that justicu not oiilv has her eyes baudaged, but also her osrs stop ped. Tho present District Attorney I Judgo Audrews, is said to bo a grout im provement over his predecessor, Camp, under whose administration those in dictments were brought. The grand jury at this term are not so busy as al previous terms, and thero is some senso of relief felt by the whole country. 1 notice ono of your fellow-citizens right constantly iu attendance. From all that 1 can huar I am led to believe, however, that indictmonts havo been found against him in order to cover up tho rascalities of somo who are in favor with the powers that be. If this is true a speedy trial will not bo gr.mred him in any of his cases or at least such a thing is quite improbnblu. Our Kuoxville Tammany continues to develop. On a former occ asion I wrote you that our former county Trustee, Mr. Mynatt, had boon found to bo a defaul ter, and suit had been brought against him nnd his bondsman for tho rocoverv of about eight thousand dollars. I now inform you that our former Tax Collec tor, Mr. Tarwator, (also alladical Re publican) has boon discovered to be slightly behind in hin accounts and now the Attorney Gonoral wants ton thou sand dollars from him and his bonds men. This propensity "for taking all you can get and keeping all you tuko" is pre eminently a Radical characteristic. The only trouble in the matter is that the party is getting to be so full of disap pointed aspirants rogues who joined in the hope of getting into public places of trust that it is beginning to fall to pieces. Honest mon will soon got their dues, I think, if the machine is still to be run by thoso now in power. Did you ever see Buch weather? The ground li'is been covered with snow now for eight days and it is still snowing. The farmers say this will bo worth a great deal to their wheat.

This was the incarceration nud execution of tho lameutod Hayssc. The prison is a small excavation beneath tho surface, with im mensely thick walls, and lighted by nar row windows Htryii!;ly grated, and bare ly sufficient to admit air enough to pro- vont death from suffocation. I saw tho iron ring and steeplo oncrustod with rust of nearly a century, still pendant from tho low, racking roof of tho prison, whuro tho groat Patriot hail boon chain ed liko a wild beast, for daring to do battle in freedom's cause. Just in front of this dismal cell, was erected tho scaf fold, upon which ho mot a felon's death- Who does uot remember all the scenes of this bloody drama, as delineated iu tho graphic and vivid stylo of the gifted biographer of Geu'l. Francia Marion ? Alas ! that history should bo ropeatin itsell in the sulleriiig and persecutions of tho hundreds of unoffending victims at this present hour, who languish in prison by tho cdieU of an unprincipled, tyranical executive. At that day this devoted littlo commonwealth was over run by a foreign soldiery now 3000 glittoring bayonets in the hands of so called countrymen, tramplo upon tho rights of a defenceless people. Which of tho two masters was the least odious: Ask the overburdened people of this city whose dwellings aro still torn and dis mantled by the shot of thoso brethren ? whoso streets are patrolled by their own ..i i . . slaves, wuoso aucieni scat oi learning is no more, whose legislators are thieves aud assassins, whoso treasury is bank rupt aud credit ruined, whose wives aud daughters are degraded, whoso best citi zous ' are disfranchised, and many of them iu fetters.

Tho late yellow-fever was far more malignant nnd fatal in its ravag03 than it was believed to be abroad as late as 22nd of November, eight foil victims to it; two hundred and twenty deaths are officially reported, and those figures are probable not strictly correct; the pesti lence has loft a deep seated gloom upon the community, and has acted like a night-mare ou tho trade and enterprise of the city.

EARLY'S EULOGY ON LEE. The True Story ot tho Eastern Cam paign. Despite a storm of rain and sloet the spacious chapel of Washington and Lee University was crowded this moring by a most attentive audience to hear the ad dress of General Jubal A. Early on the military career of General Robert E. Lee. After a brief and handsome in troduction, General Early said that he would deal only in facts and figures, which alone would couvinco tho judg ment. He alluded to the monorable scene when General Leo recoivod his commis sion from the Virginia Convention; to his self-abnegation, insessant labor, and assorted that, without General Leo's service in the reorganization of the Vir ginia forces at first, the battle of Manas sas could not have been fought Gener al Lee was first in command in West Virginia, and then on the sea coast de fenses. After the battle of the Seven Pines he came to the command of the army of Northorn Virginia, and con ceived that splendid campaign of which a great mind was alone capable. In the the seveu days' battle around Richmond Lee had 75,000 infantry and 2,000 cavalry and artillery, and this was the largest army he ever commandod. In swinging around the attack Mc- Clellan's rear and flank he loft but 25,- 000 mon between the enemy and Rich mond. This was the perfection of wise doing, and had General Lee's orders been carried out by his subordinates Mc- Clellan s army could have been annihila ted. General Pope came next. Jack son's movement to the rear of Pope with 10,000 men was one of the most brilliant strategical movements on record. Gen eral Leo now undertook THE DOLD PLAH of crossing the Potomac at Sharpsburjr. Jackson had but 4,000 men, and Oenoral Lee's whole forceengrged did not exceed 18,000 men. This was one of tho most remarkable battles of the war. The offi. cul reports show that during the whole of tho 15th and part of the lGth General Lee confronted McClellan with only 7,- C00 infantry, and his whole force of all arms from tint to last was less than 30,- IMIO men. McClellan had 97,000 meu aud i'M guns. MeCltillan did not claim a victory un til tho l!)th. after ho found Leo had re crossod the Potomac, and he began to crow, nt first feebly, and then more loudly. Applause. With anything liko equal means Lee would, in Septem ber, lr)G2, have dictated terras of peace in Washington City. At the battle of Fredericksburg it was impossible to at tack in tha evening, because of the furi ous artillery fire. Jackson ordered the speaker to attack, and then counter manded tho ord sr. At Cnancellorsvills Leo's success was a triumph. Jackson fell, and General Lee might well say that he had lost his right arm. At Gettysburg, on the first day, we gained a decided victory; ou tho second and third days wo failed to dislodge the enemy, Our ammunition was short. General Lee consulted me a wholo day, and deter mined to fall back. Till! MAGNANIMITY OP OFNEIt M, I.F.E. kept back the truo secret of ill success at Gettysburg. Tho attack was to have boon made at daylight, but Lonstreet's corps was not ready until 1 o'clock p. m. By thut timo Meade's wholo array was up. In the morning an attack by our right on the euemy's left must have resulted in a brilliant success. The at tack on our left was only made to sup port Longstreet. If what Swinton sayp in his book as to what Longstreet has said be true, then ono at leas t of Lee's Lieutenants did not go into tho fight with tho confideuce and good faith iipc essary to success. General Lee in this battle had less than 00,000 men of all arms. The defensive line of the rapi dan was then chosen as the only ono that could not be flanked by monitors and gunboats. In May, 18ot, Grant came with 110,000 mon. Then came tho doath grapplo. At Spottsylvania our lines wcro for a time broken. Grant had rc aoived 40,000 men more, Lee not ono, Grant finally landed on the south sido of the James River, where ho could have gone at first without tho loss of a man, but to reach which coht him inoro than tho ontiro number in Lee's array. All things considered, this campaign of Leo's army is tho most rtmarkablo of ancient or modern times. TIIK WSPAK1TY OP NUVI1KI18 so:inds liko a romaueo. General Leo wroto to me, in lH(i(! that it would be hard to make tho world understand and boliovo tho fact, but Leo was always nnx. ions to take tho offensive. IIo said to mo, if Grant goes to James River it would becoiuo a siego, aud then it would only be a question of timo. Tor nine long months constant attention and lingering starvation wore doing their work when Sherman reached Goldsboro, Tho end came at Appomatox. Eight thousand men, the equals of any iu all the tidn of time, laid down their arms before 100,000. General Leo hnd not been conquered in battle, but surrender ed because ho had uo longer an army with which to givo battle. This is but an imperfect sketch cf General Lee's military career. Whcu I returned from Canada I submitted my estimnto of his f lives to hint. ITo said they fuly covor- ed the amount and sometimes exceeded them. They aro those I havo given to- day. A Western editor called Alexis tho no ble "Russ." Tho printer made it "Kuss." Buncombe county, North Carolina, raised 500,000 pounds of tobacco, last year. The plan of tho late Georgia Teabody has been carried out, and 500 houses, with planted grounds attached, have boon leased to small families at Brigh ton, Eugland. The editors of the Memphis Tablet (women's rights journal)say that were it po.ssiblo for a woman to have any pol itics whatovor they would be radical, because radical means root. Such a thing, howevor, thoy say ie impossible. The prosont condition of Louisiana exhibits the fact that she has had an overdose reconstruction; yet thero is talk at Washington of "more reconstruc tion" for her benefit. Grant will have the thumb-screws, and applied tho Stato will go to the Devil by "lighten ing express."
