The noted ex-Con federate General Long
street has concluded to put a quietus on a
ttorj- which has been given rido circula
tion about his treatment of Unionists in
East Tennessee during the war, especially
with reference to ex-President Johnson's
family. To that end General Longstreet
writes a complete denial of the story.

Ddeium, X. C, September a Not long
since there appeared in the "Washington
correspondence of the Sew York Evening
Telegram a story conoerning the distin
guished Southerner and valiant cx-Confed-erate
soldier, General Longstreet The
narrative opens by declaring that General
Longstreet is "bitterly remembered" for
Ills treatment of the lamily of ex-President
Johnson during the war. The story then
proceeds to relate how General Longstreet,
when in command of the Confederate forces
in Tennessee, "drove the ladies of the fntnilv
from their homo." Mr. Johnson and his
sons had crossed the mountains into North
Carolina, and the family were practically
without male protection, when General
Longstreet is alleged to have effected their
removal, as stated, and then, according to
the storr, he turned the elepaut residence of
the ex-President into a smallpox hospital,
broke into his library, a small frame house
which set out from the dwelling in a beauti
THE SPELLING BOOK GONE.
In ttiis little building Mr. Johnson had
formerly worked at his trade, and afterward
had turned it into a library. From this
house General Longstreet is alleged to have
taken the ex-President's books and papers
and "distributed them among the soldiers."
Alter the war many of these books and
documents were returned to Mr. Johnson,
but the one he prized most, the little worn
blue-back spelling book, from which he had
learned to spell alter reaching manhood, he
never recovered. The narrative concludes
with the statement that when, in the changes
ot war, Jlr. Johnson became President, that
Longstreet gave the White House a very
The statements have, since their original
appearance in the New York papers, been
quite generally published in many parts of
the country, and as the report has been re
iterated, it has become clothed with ad
ditional inaccuracies, until the account as
now published is full ot errors.
General Longstreet, deeming the matter
worthy of correction, has written a letter to
Mr. Edward A. Oldham, editor of the
Globe, in which he says:

duct of the Confederates in East Tennessee
during the winter of 1863 and '64. Had there
been, it is hardly possible that snch facts coald
escape notice for so many years. Union people
within oui lines were under the same orders
and treatment as were the Confederates.
Unionists who wished to go North were given

the Confederate inspection surgeon reported
to me that the army was healthier than

after the surrender. I called to see General
Grant, Secretary Stanton and President John

roe to make another call the next day. The
following day I had another sitting of proba

conversation did he allude to the conduct of

Ex Concrcssman Norwood Sajm Iho
Colored Ballot Is a Failure
rsrrcxiL TELrcitAM to tux msPATcn.i
"Washington, September 3. Ex-Bep-resentative
Norwood, who has made some
reputation as a novelist, has the following
to say of the negro question in an interview
Congress, under Republican rule, may pass
new Federal election laws, but they will be a
dead letter. It is too late to interfere with the
aJTairs of the South in that way, now. Our
pcopie will not regard any legislation intended
to place the negro over them. And tho senti
ment in the North is against it The negro has
advanced among us as rapidly as ho Is capable
nf, and the best thing is to let him alone.
Thinking people all over the country see this.
It is only a few politicians that are trying to
keep up the agitation. We are not a savage
and brutal people; we are kind and humane to
the negro. And. more than that, we know
lnm. He Is not capable of government, and
the intelligent people of the South will not
permit tnemseivcs to he dominated by him.
Any attempt to force him forward by Fed
eral legislation will result to his own disadvan
tangeandto the injury of the person that at
tempts it. Let us alone and we will take care
of him. He is the laborer of the South, as
necessary tr the welfare of the section as such
as is the labor in the factories in theNotth.
"We have no inclination to, and cannot afford
to, oppress or ill treat him. What men of rea
son ants ignorance or superstition put above
SntelligcjceT As a voter the negro is a failure.
After 25 years of fostering and education you
have, for an example, those negroes in Georgia
leavinz their wort and their homes to follow
and worship a crank who says he is the Savior,
and when he is put in the insane asylum they
fall down and worship one of their number who
jumps up and proclaims himself as God.
The ballot with the negro, take him as a
whole, is a toy he has got tired of. Ho has no
idea nf the purpose of the ballot or how to use
it. He has used it in a blind sort of way until
he is tired of it, and he does not go to the polls
now unless there is some special reason for it.
If he is working for a man who wants him to
vole he will goup and cast his ballot because
his employer wants him to. Otherwise ou
must i;ive him a drink or a quarter to induce
him to vote. Some snch a reason as that must
influence him. Ho would rather stay at his
work than loso the time.
Some Republican politicians accuse us of sup
pressing the negro votes because they are not
cast. The fact is merely that the great mass of
the negroes, not knowing the use of the ballot,
have got tired now that the novelty is orn off,
and they do not want to vote. They stay at

Master Horse Sheers Determined Not to

Waynesbdeg, September 3. James
Neff, one of the quartet convicted of the
murder of 'William JlcCausland, was grant
ed n new trial by the court to-day. The
grounds upon which a new trial was granted
were owing to the statements of oneof thejnry
men who convicted 24eff, it being proven that
ho said in the presence of two witnesses on the
evening before be was chosen upon tho jury,
"that he believed they (meaning the men 1b
dietcd'for the murder) were all guilty, and they
should hang, and if he had anything to do with
it they would be hanged."
It has leaked out, however, that on tho first
ballot After the jurv went out, nine stood tor
conviction and three for acquittal. The jury
man showing prejndcment upon which a new
trial has been granted, was amonc the three
and ho was the last one to chance his mind to
a verdict of guilty. Neff s second trial will
probably come up in October.
