Sr A letter from Nashvillo says :
"The hardest fight the Union men hero in
Tennessee havo 'u to defend themselves
against the infernal machines sent down
South in the shapa of Abolition speeches
and astion in Congress."
True. The Albauy Argus truly says
that tho man who cannot hold his political
abolitionism iu abeyance, in a time like
the present when ho knows that it can on
ly add to the bitterness of the strife, and
when ho knows that emancipation doctrines
cannot bo pushed further, without infring
ing on Constitutional limits, is neither
Christain nor a patriot.

Chap leth Virsk.
I havo lived solitary and alone long
enough. I havo been shutting myself up
in tho very walls.'and furniture of dUcon-
tcnttncnt and inisory.
A thousand tears
havo I shed in my lonely chamber, a
thousand times havo I made the assertion
"I'll get married" : at morning, at noon,
and at evening for tho last ten years, 1
havo never failed to assert that "Til get
a wife." Little do I know of tho sweet
communion; of tho value of her inter
cessions ; and of tho cxamplo as a chris
tian. I want somebody to talk to to
roason with kiss, and enjoy nuptial felic
ity. Thorcforo I am open to proposals
from young ladies aud lato widows of av
erage respectability and tamo disposition.
This is tho first time I havo mado tho
proposal in a public journal this I Jtnow
will bo called insensibility, or want of am.
bition ; but I care not for it, I am now an
aged and learned pilgrim. As nearly as
I can judge I will now describo for tho
satisfaction of applicants ; more my dis
position, than my looks, at tho same time
giving a brief history of a few years of
ray life ; and also the kind of companion
I desire. I am of middle size and finely
formed my features pleasing but strongly
marked had 1 a military hat and cloak
and appear on a noble ytccd before ba
tallions, my resemblance is such that they
would present arms, and senates would rise
to do homage. I will pass the various scenes
of myboyhood days when I used to go incom
pany to bo complimented for my.benuty,
and Gnd n.yself at college. My noblo and
commanding form, urbanity of manners,
and diligence in study, soon won me the
esteem of faculty and students. During
the first year I hold a high rank in my
class and jjavc promise of eminent useful
ness. Dut you know that collego life
severely tests a young man's principles.
It id a state of exposure and trial during
which no youth is safe without devoted
piety ; a security which I am sorry indeed
to say that I did not then nor do I now
possess. I formed unfortunate connexions
the effects of which were soon apparent.
I was admonished of my danger, but
seemed as if spell-bound by some faeina
tion from which I could not escape.
After repeated admonitions and fruit
less efforts to reclaim mo, I was dishonor
ably expelled from Collego a drunkard !
On this occasion I burst into tears and
started for my home in thecouuty of C .
I ho report of my expulsion from College
and the cause of it, blasted tho high-raised
expectations of all my friends, and soun
ded in their ears like tho death knell of
all my prospects and hope.

For the Columbia Democrat,
Mr. Editor 1 Having somo personal

beforo tho publio, by any inueudo or in-

private citizen ; a slill lower depth is
reached, when the ehargo, however cov

Tho writer is awaro who is tho author
of tho report; and for a man who believes
as littlo in tho Riblo as Dr. John docs, to
put any faith in a man who ttcals tho liv
ery of Heaven to servo tho Devil in ; is
cortainly a curious spectacle. Curious as
it is however, it is porhaps just such a
combination a9 wo ought to expect.
Now the paragraph in tho African Re
publican stating that a citizen of this placo
Ronton, in Philadelphia, entered his nanio
by tho "initials"' only, was written by tho
Dr. and published by him without any
personal knowledge of tho subject and
whatever information ho had 011 tho subject
must have been furnished by another. If it
was not, then Dr. John published a false
hood knowingly ; and if it was, then tho
Informant of tho Dr. is an infamous liar
and can be so proven.
The Rcpub'tcan's assertion is untruo bo
its information derived from whero it may;
and tho mcudacity is only equalled by tho
morbid meanness, which seeks, becauso of
personal enmity, to abuso and slander a
private citizen through tho public press.
If such a thing must bo done however,
Dr. John's newspaper is tho proper vehic
le There tho lowest meanness finds its
evel thcro quacks, and hypocrites, and
abolititiouists mingle in sweet council.

Gami1 Greco, 8th Pa. Cavat.uy,
JIr. Editor : I again wish to say a
few words, as I have seen some fighting
latclv. On the 14th inst., the Ri'gimcnt
to which I belong, was in a fight for tho
first time. Wc made a charge at the en
emy through a iicld. Thcj' opened a voi
le)' of musketry on us and a batter)' of
two howitzers. The shot and shell
poured in on us but did not stop our pro
gress, until they were completely routed.
This force consisted of two regiments
of Infantry, four hundred of Cavalry and
one hattory. Our force was live hun
dred. One scrgent of Company F.,was
was wounded in the arm, slightly. Wo
did not ascertain the loss of the enemy,
but it must have been considerable, for
we gave it to them fast, agjwc have the
Sharp's breech loading rifles. Wo can
fire ten shots a minute.
Shmtly lifter weroutcd the rebels, G'cn.
McClellan's wagon train of one hundred
and fifty were near being captured. If
wc had not been there the whole train
would have been lost. This happened
about four miles from Hanover Court
House, Kent co Ya.
On the lotti. we advanced again, and
overtook the enemy at Baltimore Store,
wc then chased them to tho Cliicahoin
niiy river, and there they opened seven
batteries on us. We fell back and waited
until reinforcements came up, then skir
mishers wero thrown out, and wo skir
mished the woods, and found tho enemy
in force, and our riflo cannon was placed
for action and as soon as the shell burst,
tho .uemy returned the fire. Thoy shot
for three hours when it got too hot for tho
cncniy, and they look to their heels. As
the 8th Pcnn'a. Cavalry was the only
mounted Regiment there, wo wero order
ed to pursue the cneni)', and soon we
were on a full gallop when wc overtook
thorn. Thoy turned on us but all of no

eaten my breakfast on their coat-tails.
There were somo of them that had lost
their coat-tails it looked as if it had
happened by running so fast, for they
havo done their share iu Virginia.
Wc aro now on the llottoin Rridgo
Road, and our pickets arc within five
miles of Richmond. On Saturday, tho
21th iust., wo had a hard light. Tho reb
els mado a'stand near were wo aro now
encamped. Tho fight lasted flvo hours.
Our loss was two killed and 20 woundod,
but wo routed tho eucmy with good success,
wo found 00 rebels in ono pile iu tho
woods, aud I saw a negro woman, who
said "dcy took wagon loads of dar ded
baok." I asked ,hcr if tho rebels run.
sho said ''gess dcy did, mass, an' doy say
dcy will lick do Yankeos too."
Yesterday our compauy was out on
picket duty, aud tho rebel pickets kept up
their picket shooting. Thcro was , ono
' picket kept shooting at our mounted men
, but could not shoot any of them, so ho
u and two othew, thought tlicy would creep
up closo, when ono of our men saw them
coining, so ho dismounted nnd ran into
somo bushes that wero closo by, and as
theso threo men raised up to shoot tho
men that wero still on post mounted, our
man in tho bushes fired too soon for them
and ho shot .the largest man through tho
right breast, ho fell, and hollowed as loud
as ho could. Tho other two run. Tho
poor wounded man got up, and wo told
him to como in, ho came, but in walking a
distance of fifty yards ho fell threo or
four times, Wo then sont for a stretcher
and carried him into our headquarters.
Ho was asked what ho was doing out in
tho bushes, ou his hands and knees. He
said his Colonel had sent him out to re
connoitcr. I asked him what regiment
ho belonged to. Ho said North Carolina.
I then told him their troops woro all call
ed in. He said ho did not know it. Ho
then told mo ho enlisted to fight for his
home and negroes. I asked his name and
ho told mo it was John Murphy,
Ho is the most impudent man I ever
saw. We asked him several questions,
and he would damn us, and say ''you
Yankees cannot whip the South." Tho
contents of his haversack was n small
piece of hoecakc aud a pioco of bacon off
the poorest kind. He also said they wcrcV
evacuating Richmond. John's wounds
arc such that I think he is dead ere this.
He said ho weighed about 170 pounds.
Thcro was an accident happened to Thos.
Welsh, of Compauy I. Ho was cleaning
his pistol and (it bciug loaded) went off,
and tho ball passed through the thiok part
of his leg, below the knee. It is a flesh
wound. Our regiment wa3 out skirmish
ing yesterday, and two of our men were
shot. Ono tho ball entered the sido of tho
nose aud coming out at tho back of his
head. Ho is still living. Tho other was
shot through tho thigh, nis leg will be
amputated. Our regiment is in good
ucaiiu, aim tno men are eager tor tho

"Taking tho Responsibility."
President Lincoln somewhat ostcnta-
tiously addresses Congress a message, to
tako the responsibility of one of Gamer-
on's acts of administration. He is silent
as to the others upon which tho IIouio of ;
Representatives havo passed a virtual son- j
tence of impeachment. Rut ho has, by
appointing tbo condemned Secretary to
one of tho highos missions abroad, virtual-
ly assumed, also, his corruptions.
The Presidont 'took tho responsibility,'
also, of the arrest and imprisonment of
Gen. Stone, and of tho denial of a trial,
iu spite of tho evidence of his innooenco.
He is doubtless, as Chief Executive, re
sponsible for those acts; but wo bclicvo ho
was ignorant of thorn till they wero done.
Why. thou, doe3 he hasten to assmno a
personal as well as official responsibility,
in cases liko those? Ho may think that
thero is a popularity to gain, such as Jacl:-
son won, by boldly assuming tho consc -
quence of the acts of his administrate.
Rut Gen. Jackson 'took tho responsibility' ' as such conduct continues, liko Banquo's
in defense of tho Constitution, and in put- ghost, it will not down at their own bid

e .,,.. i . ,. r, tho Society wo trust this wi 11 bo tho rulo
from which his judgment and feelings alike ; n ..
recoil. Thoy will do acts and foroo him
to "tako tho responsibility," until ho finds
himself no longer the hoad of a Pooplc,
but tho chief of a small but. dangerous and
unprincipled faction ihat has ceased to look
for or desiro a restoration of tho Union, or
a continuance of tho Government.

Tho editor of tho Repnblicati denies
that politics had anything to do with the
election of officers for tho Agricultural
; Society. A reference to tho proceedings,
which wo publish elsewhere, is a sufficient
refutation of this ca?iard. Every man of
them is of tho Republican stripe. Did it
happen so, Doctor, or was not tho wholo
thing understood, before the election camo
' off? Como, now, make a clean breast of
it. Any attempt to whito wash tho action
of tho Society, in this particular ; only
exposes their partizan action, tho moro to
tho publio gaze. e think tho managers
