lIuiQ ii. a n d H e s t o r a t i o u i n T e n ­ nessee. A SPEECH BY PAISOH B E 0 ¥ I L 0 ¥ . THE KEBELS ANHIHIIiATED. Ho remarked that lie had been accnstomud for so many years to speak from a text that ie would adhere to his old habit to-day. He ■'*K)uld-take for his text on this occiiHon- a sllOft editorial which he published in reference to secession in the Knoxville Whig. [The Speaker then read the celebrated editori.al of Ibe Knoxville Whig written immediately af­ ter the secession of North Garoliua, predict­ ing the horrible consequences of that deed. Everybody is familiar with it, as it has been published frequently.] This shall be my text. The dreadful con sequences which I foretold, then derided .as idle predictions, have more than been fulfiiU- ed. To employ the lan^rnajie of a distin­ guished statesman, now dead, I say : ‘‘ \We are in the midst of a mishty revolution,” a mighty revolution. When and where it will end, God only knows. J trnst. however, that I am beginning to-see some glimpses of day­ light on the Southern border. Bloody and terrible as the revolution may be, I hope it may never end until the Stars and Stripes again wave over every foot of territory in the South. [Loud applause.] To attain this end, I am for coercion; for subjugation,—^yes for the annihilation, if you choose,, of every man and woman who dares resist the glorious authority, of the flag of my country, under which we have lived for eighty years so hap­ pily and prosperously. During this period we have had nineteen Presidential elections, in which we of the South, with half the peo­ ple of the North, and half the territory, elect­ ed our choice thirteen times, and generously, magnanimously, suffered the North to elect their choice six times. Not content with our own Presidents, we even proceeded to kidnap three of these six Northern Presidents making them Northern men with Southern principles!” Now let me say, I am a South­ ern man. born and bred, and intend to live and die in the South, where I can fight rebels and secessionists ; but yet, of all vile crea­ tures on the earth, these Northern doughface? with Southern principles were the meanest. “Why, the worst rebels T know of to-day are Northern men who came South, married widows with twenty or thirty ncgr(>es, and suddenly grew chivalrous and noisy about Southern Eights. I never voted for Jackson or any of hi.? party friends, but if my earnest prayers and bitter tears could have recalled Old ITickory to life, I would have poured them forth, that he might have sat in the “ Old Public Fune- tionary’s” chair, and collaring the unmilaga- ted scamps Floyd. Jake Thompson, and that anointed thief Judah Benjamin, told them, \ By the Eternal, this damnable plot has got to stop ?” And it would have stopped and the people wonld have shouted Amen ! We of the South ruled the nation absolutely.— \We never allowed the North to re-elect a President. We re-elected nearly all of ours, but put the North off with one term. Yet, alter the mighty North saw fit to elect Lin­ coln, we got furiously patriotic and voted “ separation and representation.” And I guess that I see a goodly number here to-day who A’oted for separation and representation. Gentlemen, I think you have gotten what you voted for to your heart’s content. You have been represented with a vengeance for over two years, out of nearly all you ever possessed. Represented out. of your Legis- Mure, and of Congress 1 You have got rep- aesentation! You have got sepaiatam, too! Separation frcm your hay stacks, corn-cribs, and fence-rails! Separation from your horses, mules, and cattle ! Separation from your be­ loved niggers, and I have heard it hinted that some of you have been separated from your daughters! You will have a good deal more of this separation before the war is over. We got more than our shar> of appropria­ tions in the old Union. The North contrib­ uted a quarter of a million of dollars to help Garry our mails, which was a dead loss to the federal government. The Nrrth gave us what we asked. It helped ns to the fugitive slave law ; it helped us to Texas, and threw in Polk and Dallas to boot. The south wanted to-repeal the Missouri Com} romise, and the North helped her; a fatal .step, which was the beginning of much of the pres­ ent trouble. And yet, in the face of all these historic facts, we rebelled to s-we our niggers! We are in the midst of a fearful, cruel, bloody revolution, without the sem­ blance or shadw of justification for our wick­ ed conduct. We are the last people on earth who had cause to complain, for we had enjoyed the favors of a benignant Government over and above the North. And now 1 think some of you are beginning to see your stupendous foliy. Your eyes, like those ol young kittens, are gradually opening to the light. The marching and counterm.arching of armies through your towns and villages, is teaching many of you a dear but valuable lesson. But some of you are yet not satisfied and are wishing for the return of the rebel army. Let me tell you if it does return they are plenty of those blue-coated fellow.s to set them afloat again, southward ; and by the time the federal troops have taken possession of your Htate again they will wipe you up so clean that there will be nothing left (>f you but the tip end of your tails. Btop your folly, and come back and join us. ’I he Uni­ ted States 18 able and determined to put down Ibe rebellion. It must shall and will be put down. [Appla-nse.J I talk to the rebels. Who inaugurated this rebebion ? South Carolina had been plottinsr it for thirty years and\ it the letter and spiiit of the Federal Gonstitation had Been carried cut, she never could have been a member of the Federal Union, for she never hid a republican govern­ ment which is guaranteed to all states. A man must own ten negroes before he can be elected to the Legislature. She ought to be let out to contract to a Yankee company, to be sawed out, floated out and sunk into the ocean. This aebelHon is an old plot.— As fur back as LS.oG, Governor Wise sent a J d 1860 I visited Montgomery, Alabama, and was invited by the Legislature to deliver an address in thoir hall, on public affairs. I did so. I declared myself a southern pro- slavery man, and that I desired the prosperity of the south. They applauded the sentimeni s. But I added that I had seen with pain their act to- arm the state in case a Republican president should be elected. 1 said it meant treason, and that I was an unconditianal Un­ ion man, and would stand by the Uuiion, al­ though slavery should perish. Some of the men hissed, and some elegantly dressed la­ dies bounced up and left the Ivdi ; the devil was in them, then, before it got into the men. My ticket in 1800 was the Bell-Everett ticket, a sort of Kangaroo alFair, with all its virtues in its bind legs. John Bell is now poking about Rome and Atlanta with an old cotton umbrella under his arm, hunting for hisiiglita. Tie’ll get tliera, his iron-works have got them already. Ifouglas headed the next ticket—ft gallant patriot, who, if alive to day, wonld be in the field with a star or two on bis shoulder. Breckinridge headed the third ticket, 'i’he fourth and last ticket was beaded by Mr. Lincoln, and if none of yon have beard the refult before, I have the pleasure of informing yon, that ticket was elected ! There would have been no war if Breckinride had Vieen elected. He would have gone into office, sworn before God ami kissed the Bible on it, to defend the Consti­ tution and the Union, spent four years in filling every southern fort and City with arms removed all the public money south, manned the whole navy with traitors, and at the end of his term, walked out of the Union, leaving the North without a gun. ship, pistol or sa bre. I thank my God to-day that neither Bell Douglas nor Breckinridge were elected and that a more honest, brave, wise and patriotic man was elected than ever Breckinridge was or ever con’d be, unless he was made ovt-r again, and I think I know enough of the di­ vine character to say the Almighty would never undertake that job. 'I'hese southern leaders are the worst men that ever lived.— There are better men in the Penitentiary, and if I were not afraid of getting up a theologi­ cal controver-sy, I would say there were bet­ ter men in hell! d’hey took a solemn oath of office, they devoutly kissed the Bible upon it. and then after legi.slating in Congress all day, and drawing their salaries, met ini a se­ cure room, by night, to plot the overthrow of the Government. Honorable A. 0. P. X. Y. Z. N^icholson ! Honorable'I oom’os 1 I will not in.sult Judas Iscariot by comparing him with the.-ie wretches. Why, after all their cry against abolitionists, these rebels are a gang of negro thif-ves. Scott’s Alabama cavalry composed of the Southern eliivalry kidnapped ray negro boy Charles, one Sun­ day, and run him south. lie came back to me the other day, having given tlietn the slip, after getting hia •• rights” abundantly.— Now 1 had expected that the “ blue coats” might take a negro occasionally, but not the flower t f secession aristocracy 1 These rebels have stolen more negroes since the rebellion began from Union men and ran them South than the abolitionists ever did.— N'orthern aboIitioni.-;ts are not fit to bol l a candle to these southern negro thieves. I hope the devil may seize them and drown them in the sea, as he did the swine in the N^ew 1'estament. J5eat3a o f l i o n . l i c o i i a r d Gilhljs. It is with feelings of deep regret that we notice the death of Hon- L eonard G ibbs , who died at Union Village on the 12th inst. His life has been one of usefulness in his profession. He was at one time District Attorney, the duties of which he discharged to the satisfac­ tion of the public. Since that time he has served in the Legislature of this State. The last twenty years he has spent in private life at Union Village, where he was much respec­ ted. He leaves many friends to mourn his loss. I ^ C a p t . D uncan C ameron was arrested, charged with enticing Yer- mont conscripts to desert, and enlist­ ing them in his company of cavalry now encamped at Saratoga Springs. He went down one day this week in charge of a Provost Marshall. Capt. 0. has served tw’o years in the old 22d Keg’t, during which time he lost an arm, and since has been raising a comjiany of cavalry with prospects of being Major. We ho[ie the charges are unfound­ ed and that the Captain will come out with unstained lauiels. I it^ ^ T h e Telegraph line between j this place and Glen’s Falls is nearly I completed.

The siege of Charleston progresses favorably. The advance made hy the Union forces is slow, but sure. Forts Wagner and Gregg have been captured. This gives to our army the possession of Morris Island and brings our batteries witliin easy shell­ ing distance of the city. Since the capture of this Island the Federals have been paying their re.spects to Moultrie, and if the latest informa­ tion proves correct the Fort is no doubt, ere this, in our posse.ssion.— Unless the rebel general yields the contest the public may expect cer­ tain distrnctionof the city of Charles­ ton, as it is in the reach of our guns. At this present writing it appears that Lee’s army is making its way suthward, but for what purpose con­ jecture is on tip-toe. Time however, will develope this. If he is really falling hack upon and beyond Eieh- mond, that settles the que.stiun that the rebels do not contemjilate anoth­ er raid in Maryland. The succe.ss which has attended Rosecrans and Burnside of late,, in the ^south west has virtually ended tho rebellion in Tennessee. The army of the frontier, under Gen. Blunt, is doing up its work rap­ idly, and the rebel cause in Arkansas is about as thoroughly prostrated as it is in Tennes.see, On Monday as Col- of Saudv Hill, was ; ■ I handling some benzine near a light it ex[il>)ded, setting everything on lire.
