GOVERNOR JOHNSON'S S E E
Governor Andy Johnson made an im
promptu speech from the porch of the capit
tol at Nashville, on tho evening of the 4th.
It contains many good things. We make a
few extracts
FRBSH BAKED BREAD. light of Heaven—gase steadfastly on 4
Ours is the people's government, they re
ceived it as a legacy from Heaven, and they
must defend and preserve it, if it is to be pre
served at all. I am for this government
above all earthly possessions, and if it perish
I do not wish to survive it. I am for itwoman
slavery should be struck frOin exis
tence and Africa be swept from the balance
of the world.
And what has the motive of many of these
men in Nashville for bringing on and aiding
the rebellion Why many of these elegant
gentleman rebelled to get rid of paying thei
northern debts If a miserable, crippled ne
gro, worth $500, was stolen, the govern
ment must be overthrown if the negro
could not be recovered, but your polite fas
tidious and chivalrous merchant can go
among what he calls ''blue-bellied Yankees''
bay their goods on credit, and then, when
pay day comes.tell his creditors in the north
"Oh, I have seceded It is an outrageous
crime to steal a negro, but it is gentlemanly
financiering to defraud a Northern creditor
of $50,000 or a $100,000. Hundreds of in
stances could be related showing how fartion,
the rebellion was impelled and advanced by
this swindling spirit. Yet these very men
who had disgraced themselves by these
frauds would talk gravely about the sin of
slave stealing. Now take the value of all the
negroes that have stolen from the South and
then take the sum of all the Northern debts
that have been repudiated by southern men
and the latter will surpass theformeratthe
least ten to one. Who own many of your
public buildings, railroad stocks, bank stocks
aad other property Northern men. Yet
you who clamor about your southern rights
can coolly defraud your northern friends of
millions of dollars. The rebels of Tennes
see must be coerced. They coerced Ten
nessee or tried to coerce her, out of the
Union, and they must be coerced into
the performance of their duty. You talk
of withholding your cotton and starving
out the North. Just make the
calarm
eolation which will starve out the soonest—
The North, with her breadstuff* and no cot
tea, or the South, with cotton and no bread
stud!

I claim this world as my home, And every
honest man as my brother. I love my
country, her constitution, her laws, and her
free institutions. I love her history and the
memory of her glorious dead. I love the
precepts and teachings of her illustrous foun
ders. I love my State, and pray for herernment,
happiness and prosperity, which must be
found in the laws and under the flag of theI
Union. Looking around mevto-night, I say
to the gallant and patriotic soldiers who
bear this flag, ,Welcome, welcome thrice
welcome, defenders of the Union On with
your glorious work, and in the face of all op
po&ilion, even at the point of the sword and
bayonet, and amid the roar and crash of bat
tie let the government of Washington be de
fended. W have heard these tr Ops called
northern invaders and Hessians, but we have
seen and compared the rebel and patriot ar
mies. The first spread horror and desolation
among us, the latter have been law-abiding
and orderly, and have been a protection to
the people.
We are told that the devil was conquered,
and chained in the infernal pit, but that he
was to be let loose for a season. If ever the
devil was let loose in the world, I believe
that now is the tme, and that he is actuating
this southern rebellion.
The strong arm of the Government must be
bared and justice must do her work. We
may as well understand the fact first as last
and go to work rationally. Without force
and power to coerce we have no government.
How have matters gone on heretofore
Why when the Union army came here the
first to run to it for protection and privileges
were secessionists, who got promises of pro
tection, if they would remain neutral. On
the other hand, the poor Union men were
terrified with threats of vengeance if the
rebel army should return. The secessionists
were protected by the Union army, and was
equally confident of protection should the
rebel army rcturn.so he felt perfectly easy.
The Union men dreaded utter ruin should a
reverse occur, and was filled with perpetual
alarm. So, under this sirange policy the
rebel had two guarantees, and the Union
man but one. It is time this was stopped.
The time has arrived when treason mu*t be
made odious and traitors impoverished.—
These men have used their property to des
troy the government, and fill the land with
bankruptcy and distress they have given
their wealth freely to aid rebellion and tvea
son, and drench the land in fraternal blood,
and crush out the last vestige of liberty, and
their property should be taken from them to
defray the expenses of the war. They are
tho guilty ones. They are the real crimin
als.

me that a band of assassins are on my
track. How or where they mean to strike.
I know not. They are a craven, dastardly

who do theirlwork from behind your back
or in the dark, or by poison. Some wretch
even now may be skulking in this crowd

One of the most remarkable case? of phys

the Michigan Southern and Rock Island
Railroads, met with an accident at the June

be considered a marvel. Tuesday night,
after his labor was closed for the day,
went into a saloon with several friends, and
drank pretty freely of liquor. About 5
o'clock he startedforhome, alone, walking
along on the track as was his custom.—
When about halfway home, however he
was suddenly so overcome by the effects of
liquor he had drank, that he fell to thequently
ground, insensible. He remained in this
sleeping stupor till 5 o.elock the next morn

realization of tho horrible calamity which
had befallen him. Hisrightarm had been
entirely severed from the body, near the
shoulder, and was lying on the ground be
side him. His left arm was crushed to a
jelly, from the elbow down, and also the hand
with the exception of the fore-linger and
thumb. In this condition, tho man rose to
bis feet, managed to pick up the severed right
and actually walked one-fourth of a

E CHARACTER. O
•JCCLELLAN:
GENERA1
The following sketch of the character ol
General McClellan, is by the talented cor
respondent of tho Cincinnati Commercial
whose graphic letters from the Peninsula]
we have often commended. The extract
appears in tht Commercial of the 7th and
was written after the return of the corres
pondent to Cincinnati. The extract may
look like "damning with mint praise," butit
will be remembered that the writer is an ab
olitionist, and before he went to the Penin
suta, was prejudiced against General McClel
lan. He says:
People are anxious to know whether Gen.
McClellan is the manfifethe place he occu
pies. Candidly, therein yet no sufficient
data upon which to issue opinions. There
is no disputing the fact that his retreat from
Fair Oaks to Malvern Hill was skillfully
executed. True, it was only seventeen
miles, but mark the conditions. I am notelevated.
competent to decide whether he is or is not
a military genius. There seems to be nocircle
doubt that the regular army officers rely up
on him implicitly. A few criticise him
sharply, but I donot hesitate to say that
they are officers who have given no proofs of
qualities entitling theiropinions to respectful
consideration. In fact, I think the service
would be benefitted by reducing some of them
to the command' of regiments and brigades
I have been surprised at the confidence placed
in McClellan by his seniors in service. It
may be that this arises from the army habit
of subordination, and from social influence
General McClellan is personally an extreme
ly agreeable, gentleman. I will jtake the
liberty to say, however, that with my com
paratively limited opportunities to form
diagonosis of his character I should say that
in any but a military point of view he is not
by any means an extraordinary man. I
certainly believe that he has no distinct and
decided convictions whatever npon political
questions. I dont mean partizan politics.—
If he had possessed a particle of partizan tact
he never woul, have become involve. with ...._.
Washington politicians. On the question of
slavery, which is inseparable from this war
I am free to say that I do not believe that
General
McClellan has any convictions.—
I think his opinions on that question are
nothing more than social and ad captan dum
principles, pardon me, but I believe that
eight out of every ten who were educated at
West Point have but little clearer percep
tions of the relations of slavery with the
Government than a pagan has of the rela
tions between the science of geology and tho
creation of the human race. While I ad-est
mire the splendid gallantry and military and
social accomplishments of West Pointers, I
am sorry to say that the almost only great po
litical fact established in their minds clearly
and definitely, is that it is their duty to fight
the government and its flag. 1 don't be
lieve many of them reason on the slavery
any other political questions, except in
itsturned
social or army bearings. Nobody will dis
pute, I presume, that the commander of the
with the political philosophy of slavery. I
certainly believe that he would be a more
successful General if ho was.
Rut as I said, General McClellan enjoys
the confidence of thorough military men.—
That the troops have confidence in him is
true. Upon this latter point I lay but little
stress, because commanders are generally
popular with their soldiers. I have seldom
read of a General commanding a large array
who was not cheered enthusiastically, and
praised by his men. But I sincerely be
lieve that McClellan is really popular with
the army. I express these sentiments very
freely, partly because I have no favors to ask
partly because I never worship any man.—
I endeavor to state my convictions. In these
premises I cannot say that I have any defi
nite convictions respecting Gen. McClellan's
military genius. In the midst of his recent
trials, although he was evidently troubled,
he was constantly calm and self-possessed.
I watched him closely, and I could not dis
cover that he lost his presence of mind at
any period. Those roost intimately acquaint
ed with him assured me that his mind was
constantly serene. Of course I cannot de
termine how much he relies upon the opin
ions of others. I only know that he frel
consults those who are regarded as
among the best military minds of the army
No man could devote himself more inces
santly to his duties than he. He is an in*
cessant, sleepless and rapid worker. These
are my opinions frankly.
In the above criticism the writer involun
tarily gives utterance to thefollowingwords
with tho intention that they bo taken a* a
rebuke against theeminent soldier:
While I admire the splendid gallantry and
military aad social accomplishments of West
Pointers, I asa sorry to say that the almost

HOW O STACKGttAIN.
The major part of the wheat and oats
grown in Illinois and Iowa lias to beStacked
for the want of barfis in which to house it.
A good stacker is found in but few neighbor
hoods, and as a consequence the grain is
thrown together in piles but to get thor
ly soaked by the first rain. It needs a
mechanic to build a stack in a safe and effi-and
cient manner. You can't expect grain to
save well when hastily piled topether with
out form or comliness. The best form In
which to put dp stacks is in what are called
ricks, and should contain at least two hun
dred dolen bundles. A bottom made of
poles or rails, ten by twenty, will hold two
hundred and fifty doaen, if rightly put up
Commence in the middle by laying the first
bundle, the second and third, &c, with their
heads on the first, so that when the first
layer is down the middle will be but slightly
The second, and every succeeding
layer, is to be commenced upon the outside
finishing up in the middle. The stack
should be carried up to about six feet in
hight, with the butts even—then to form a
bulge, each succeeding layer should project
from two to three inches, until at least six
feet more is added to the stack in hight.
Then two layers with their ends even, then
begin to draw in gradually, and if you can,
at this stage of the stack building, allow ic
to stand a few hours to settle, it will be ofthe
great advantage to its future good looks, as
it can be topped out much better, makes a
better job, keeps in better order, and will
generally settle straight A good, round
bulge should always be given the stack, as
there will be much less of its contents ex
posed to the weather. The stack should be
kept quite level until you commence draw
ing in.then gradually raise the middle so that
each layer shall lie at an angle downward
sufficient to carry oflf water. Stacking is one
of the hardest jobs done on a farm. To dowhile,
it well the kneess must come to the scratch,
and every bundle receive from them ipuach
that will make them lie ffrw and keep d"v
Many is the time our knees have sorely com
plained from the harsh contact with straw
and thistles to which they were subjected.
We yet pride ourseself that we can build a
better stack than almost "any other man,'*
"and more too." Any one doubting this
can accept the challenge, providing he brings
his sheaves to Chicago to beatacked.—

HOW JOE WON '1 HE PENCIL.
Joe B—is unquestionably the handsom
married man in Cincinnati.
Joe sports a wife, besides several other
creature comforts. Well, he and wife, Harry
—, and Geo—, and their wives, all board at
he same house. A day or two ago, while
they were at the table, luxuriating on de
tatched portions of boiled turkey which had
been stuffed with oysters, the conversation
on Christian names,when Mrs. Harry
contended that she could name more distin
guished men who had borne the name of
Henry, than any gentleman could of hi* own
name and concluded by offering a gold pen
cil as a wager, against a suitable equivalent,
should she win.
The trial commenced. Mrs. Harry—
started off with 'Harry of the West,' adding
a dozen others.
George—now gathered up on George
Washington the four Georges of England,
Lord George of France &c.
"Now, Mr. John—what hare you to say,"
said the charming Mrs. Harry.
"Oh I can give you a hundred—the two
Adams Lord John Russell —John—John
—bring me some water, John."
"Stop, stop, you can't win. Mr. Joseph
—,now your turn comes," continued the
juicy little gamester.
Now, if over a bashful man lived, it is my
friend Joe. He dared not look up. He
had been racking his brain for an answer,
but tone purpose, and in despair, be made
one great effort, and raising his head, re-stroll,
plied:
"My dear Madam, I bare lost. I cannot
now think of any very distinguished man
who ever bore the name of Joseph, except
the gentleman we read about in the Sacred
Scriptures—he who was such a favorite of
Mrs. Potiphar, but I will not offer him,
for Itltinkhe teas the—fool I ever did hear
of."
"Here's the pencil," said Mrs. Harry,tos4
ing it over to him, as she and the other la
dies scud out at the door.

"ILL KEEP 'EM AWAKE."
Near Newark, N. J., lived a very pious
family who had taken an orphan boy to
raise, who by the way was rather under
witted. He had imbibed very strict views
•n religious matters.however, and once asked
his adopted mother if she didn't think it
wrong for the old farmers to come to church
fall asleep, paying no regard to the ser
vice. She replied she did. Accordingly be
fore going to church the next Sunday, he
filled his pockets with apples. One bald
headed old man, who invariably wont to
sleep during the sermon.particularly attract
ed his attention. Seeing him at last nod
ding and giving nasal evidence of being in
the "land of dreams," ho hauled off and
took the astonished sleeper with an apple
square on the top of his bald pate The
minister and aroused congregation at once
turned around and gazed indignantly at the
boy, who merely said to the preacher, as be
took another in his hand with a sober, hon

HARD BUT TRUE AIM THE CHICA
GO TRIBUNE.
If there is any difference in the labors of
•the Chicago Tribune, Times and the Mil
waukee New, we fail to see it. They all
saek in every issue to belittle the offorts of
Government and it.* achievements, and
to insinuate doubts and difficulties, and dis
couragements. The Tribune does it, because
'ts favorite General, whoever he is, it not at
the head of the army, and its favorite policy
is not carried out and the other papers do
it, because, undoubtedly, they desire the
legitimate Government should be conquered
and the Southern democracy again restored
to undisputed sway. The motives are some
what different but the labors and results are
about the same. The public, before a great
will put them all in the same catego
ry, if they have net already done it.—Mil
ica'tkes Sentinel.
The duty of obeying orders is illustrated
by the following incident in'Washington's
campaign
One day Washington, sending a dispatch
directed the bearer to cross the river at a
certain ferry, and go through the Uamapo
Pass to Morristown. The young man know
ing that a nest of traitors infested the Pass
ventured to suggest to the commander-in
chief that another road would be safest,
•'I shall be taken," be said, "if I go through
the Pass." "Young man, your duty is not
ti talk but to obey," said Washington, stern
ly. He went as indicated, and near the
Pass was captured, as he was afraid of being
and,sent to NeW York, then in the hands
of the enemy. The next day the dispatch
es were taken from him, disclosing a plan
