by them, and either of them was authorized to
act in ease of inability to consult with the other.
On tho same occasion I ttuthoiue and di
rected ihe secretary of th treasury to advance,
without requiring security, two millions of dol
lar, of public money to John A. Dix, Gcorire
Opdjku and Richard M. Jllatchfoul of New j
Yoik, to be used by them in meeting such I
uisition, n, should bo directly consequent upon
:io military and naval measures for tlio defense
and support of the t-overnment, l cnu'iiriK them
only to net without compensation, and to report
their transactions when duly called upon. The
seveial department, of the government at lh-.it
time contained so large a number of disloial
poisons, that it wuult1 have been impossible to
piovido infely, through official agent, only, for
the performance of the duties thus confided to
citizens favorably known for their ability, loyal-
and patriotism, llio several orders i,,ued
upon these occurrence, were transmitted by
pritate messenger, who pursued a circuitous
way to tho seaboard cities, inland ucross tho
states of l'ennsilvania and Ohio and the north-
u lakes, antl I believe that by these and other
similar measures taken in that ciisi,, some of
which were without any authority of I tw, the
government was saved from overthrow. I am
not aware that a dollar ol the puoiic lund, thus
confided without authority of law to unoflkial
icrsons. wa, either lost or wasted, although
apprehension, of such misdiiectious occurred
to mo as objection, to those extraordinary pro
ct cdings and were necessarily overruled. I re
call these transactions now' hi causa my atten

passed bv the House of Representatives on the

PARSON1 BTtOWNLOW'S "LAST DYING
SPEECH AND CONFESSION."
Parson llrownlow, in his recent speech in
this city, alluded to n speech which he had pre
pared for delivery on the scaffold when ho fully
expected to be hung by his persecutors iu Kuox-
ville. Tho daner was imminent. Several
Union men had already been executed, and the
infuriated troop, in camp nnd in the liquor
shops about the town wcro clamorous for the
blood of the Parson. Under these encumstan -ccs
ho picpared ihe following speech, in pencil,
in prison. He thinks they would have granted
his request to address the crowd, frotn an in-
tenso curiosity to hear what ho hail to say at
such n trving moment, and they would certain
ly have been edified, Tho Parson handles lhc
leading traitors without gloves. The speech,
with other incidents of Parson llrovvnlovv's
eventful career, will soon be published by Geo.
W. Chllds, of Philadelphia, in n work from the
pen of Parson Drowulaw,cntitltd, "Sketches of
tho Rise, Progrcs, and Decline of Secession i
w ith n Narrative of Personal Adventures anion
Fellow Countrymen : I have often addressed
many of you, upon different topics, but Dover
under circumstances like those which now sur
round me, as I feci that I am speaking for tho
last time. I suppose ! liavo beeu sentenced to
hang by a court-martial sitting in this city i I
say I tuppose 60 for I have never had any trial,
or even n noliioofn trial being in procrcis.
So it has been with those who have been exe
cuted before me. It is aliko a matter of indif-
feienco whether I was tried by that court-mar
llnl in my absenco and in the nbsenco of wit
nesses and counsel, or whether I had been pie
sent , tho result would have been death. Tho
judge advocate, Thomas J. Campbell, is a per
fidious man, n, destitute of real honor and
mirilv of puiposo ns he is of truo courneo nnd
manly virtue. Associated wilh him Is James
D. Thomas, n man who was expelled from tho
Methodist ministry for whipping his wife and
slandering his veneiablo old father-in-law 1
This man '1 homas has advocated on the bench
in open eourt-mnrliul, the sending of the Union
masses of East Tennessee to Alabama nnd Mis.
slssippl, nnd walking them In the field, under
negro overseers, nnd the hnnging of tlio Union
leaders here I Justice at the hands of such n
set ot men u the last thing 1 would expect. In
deed, thcie is more glory in being put to death
by such men than in being acquitted, after
going through tho forms of a ( rial.
It is known to many of you that I had left
homo to avoid personal violence, nnd was nut
of Iho reach of the mob, who could not find
mc, after repealed efforts by squad, sent out,
nrmed, by that nich-hj pocritu nnd would-be
murderer, W. D. Wood of Alabama. In my
concealment 1 wns informed by it letter from
Mnjor Geneinl Ciittcndcn, in command nt thi,
place, that he wa, instructed by tho Secretary
ofWnr nt Richmond, Mr. Ilenjamin, to give
me passports nnd n military escort to conduct
mu out of this bogus Government into tho Fed
eral Government nnd I wa, invited to nppi-ar
at hi, headquartcis in twenti-four hours, where
he nromiscd tne that I should be furnished wilh
said passpoits. I was there within the lime
specified, accompanied by Colonel llaxl.-r: the
arrangement was made, nnd tho company of
Captain Gillespie designated as my escort.
Hut that evening, just before sundown, I was
arrested upon n warrant issued by that dis
graceful specimen nf our nature, Commissioner
Reynolds, upon the false oath of Attorney
Ramsey, a corrupt man t fo,- whom no tlecent
Secessionist entertain, any respect. Tho t.hargu
against mi- was treason, founded upon editorials,
ouo of which has been published, in part, by
Ramsey, in the Knoxville Hcgistcr ; end nl
Ihough tho mNcrablo man swoic that the edi
torial wa, published since thc lOA of June, nt
which time tho State voted out, my files will
show that it wns published on the '2Mi of May.
Thus I was ta en out of tho hand, of a maj
or general and of hi, Secretary of War hy it
worthies, little Confederate lawjer, and throan
into the common jail of thi, county -, refused
bail, when the best the county nfl'ord, was of
fered and, up to thi, eventful hour, I have
been denied a trial, and nn opportunity to de
fend myself before the court condeining me to
nn ignominious death. The proof of all that is
hero charged will be found in Ihe correspond
ence cited, which I have placed in the hand, of
n Iriend for pulilicuti,in. It will show that these
parties one and it 1. have- acted a treacherous
part toward me and have violated their pledges
and faith. Their perfidy nnd treachery are ab-
mhuh'i) iiisgiiicciiu io iiioir nogus government,
if indeed such a government can bo disgraced.
Some hostile reminiscence, of the past, a,
between other cowaidlv, mean nml murderous
men of thi, city an I rnvself, will appear in the
documents I leave behind ; and I request my
sons to nublish th.-m, eve. i at tho cost of their
hves. 1 desire to bear my testimony, oven in
n dying hour, to the perfidy, double-dealing,
nnd cowardly course toward 'me of that nrinee
of hypocrites and great embodiment of human
deceit, Campbell Wallace, the president of tho
railroad, and one of the great lights of secession.
X warn all men present, and all w ho may hear
of this statement, never to confide in that man.
Ho is supremely selfish, notoriously insincere,
and would self hi, interest in his (jod which
I fear is not a very large one for money !
I must nlso bear witness to tho treachery and
insincerity of William G. MacAdoo, who, while
meeting me with n smile nnd professing friend
ship, slated to John Dlack that I ought lo be
kept iu prison during this war. Thi, man was
on tho verge of starvation, nnd without credit,
when I took it upon myself to nttend the sit
ting of our Legislature, some years ago, nnd
heh) make him District Attorney. lie since
lost one wife and married it second owning n
gang of negroes nnd a rice plantation in Geor
gia, and lias turned over to secession. I warn
my family nnd friends never to confide in him.
Fellow countrymen, I am shortly to be exe
cuted not for any crime punishable with death,
but for my duvotion to my country, her laws
and constitution. I die for'refusin " to espouse

tify myself and family by such an oath, I agree
to die ! I never could sanction this trovcrnnient.
and I trust that no chihj of mine will ever do
it. Look at tho past history of the leaders nnd
originators of this rebellion. There is not a
man ot unstained character to bo found among
them. Yancey is a convicted murderer, who
killed his uncle, (Dr. Earl of South Carolina),
and, instead of going to England to intrigue
against this government, he would have been
in prison had he not been pardoned by the Gov
ernor of that State, Wigfal, a Confederate
Senator and a general, fled from his native
Slate of South Carolina to Texas to escape the
horrors of assassination, becamo a collecting
nttorncy for largo amount,, nnd then swindled
his employers out of their duo,, murdering a,
many ns two men in Texas. Floyd, while
Governor of my native State, was guilty of

sand dollars of thc W ashington Monument
