; BY M'CLURE & STONER.
HON. ANWIZEW JOIINOON.,
Andrew Johnson was born in Raleigh, North
Chrolina,..DeceMber 29, 1808: When 'he was
four years of age lie lost his father, who died
from the effects of exertions to save a friend
'Cram drowning. At the age of ten he was ap
'Prenticed to a tailor in his native city, With
whom he served seven years. His mother Was
unable to afford hint any educational advantages,
aed he never attended school a day in his life.
While learning his trade, however, he-resolved
4.0 make an effort to educate himself. His arix
lety to be able to read was particularly excited
by an incident which is worthy of mention. A
gentleman of Raleigh was in the habit o 4 going
into the tailor's sliop-..iand reading while the ap-.
pfentiee and journeymen were at work. He
was an excellent reader, and his favorite book
was a volume of speeche4, principally of British
statesmen. Johnson became ,interested ; and
Ins first ; ambition was to equal him as a reader
,and become familial with those speeches. 'lle
took up the alphabet without an instructor, but
by applying to the ijourneymen with wheal he
worked he obtained a little assistance. Having
acquired a knowledge erne letters;-he applied
for the loan of the book which lie had se often
beard read.. The (Avner, made him a present of
it, and gave him smite instruction on the use of
letters in the . forniation of words. Thus his
first exercises: in spelling were in that book:
By perseveranCe he soon learned to read, and
the hours which he devoted to his education
Were at night when he was. through his daily
labor on the: lap board He now applied him
self to his books from two to thrt4 hours every
night after working froth ten to twelve hours at
his trade. Having completed his apprentice
stilp in the autumn of 1824, be went'to Laurens
Court House, S. C., where he worked as a jour
neyman for nearly two years. , While there he
became engaged t& be 'married, but the - match
was broken off by the violent opposition, of the
mother and friends, the ground of objec
tion being Mr. Johnson's youth and *ant of pe
ouniary, metilns. In May, 1326, he returned to
74aleigh, where he procured journey,work, and
remained until September. He then set out to
seek his fortune in the West, carrying with him
his mother,' who .was s dependent upon him for
support. He stopped nit Greenville, Tennessee,
and commenced work as a journeyman. ,He
remained there about twelve months, married,
aiui soon afterward went still further westward;
but failing to find a suitable place to settle. he,
returned to Greenville and commenced business.
T;p to this time his education was limited to
rending, as he had never had au. opportunity of ,
learning,to write Or cipher, but under the in
strictions of his wife he learned these and other
'branches. --The only time, however, he could
devote to theta was in the dead of night. The
;first office which he ever held was that of Al
'rderman of the village, to which he was elected
in 1828. , re-elected to the same posi
tion hi' 1829 ; and again in 1830. In that year
he was chosen Mayor, which position he held
for three years. In 1835 he was elected to the
b;gislature. In the sesriun of that year he took
&Tided ground against. a scheme of internal
improvements, which lie contended would not
,ouly prove a failure, but 'entail upon the Static
a burdensome debt. The measure was pop
-14-r, however, and the next election (1837)
lie was defeated. Ile became' a candidate again
in 1839. . By this time, many of the evils he had
prodieted from the internal improvement pol
icy which he had eppoSed four years previous
were fully demonstrated,. and' be was elected
'Jr large majority. In 1810 he served /is
Presidential elector fw 'the State at large on
- th - e lteniocratie ticket. He canvassed a large
portion of the State, meeting upon the stomp
atteral of the leading Whig orators. In In 184 P
he was elected to the State Senate. In 1843
- - he was elected to Congreas, where by sums
.live-elections, he served until 1853. During
this period of service he was conspicuous and
active . in advocating, respectively, the bill for
refunditethe fine imposed upon Gen. Jacksno
at Now Orleans in 1815, the annexation of
Texas, the tariff of 1846; the war measures of
me Polk's administration, and a Homestead
bill. rn 1853 he was elected Governor Of Ten
'neasee, after an exciting canvass, in which he
was opposed by Gustavus A. Henry. He -was
re-elected in 1855; after another active contest,
his competitor being, Meredith P. Gentry. At
the expiration of his second period as Gover.,
_ not, in 1857, he wits elected U. S. Senator for
a full term,.ending Mareh . 3, 1863. Late in the'
year 1661, he was'appointed Military Governor
of Tcnnesseec. which position he has held tip to
the present time. He was .nominated by the
Baltimore Convention'as ,the Union candidate
for Vice President, ou the first ballot, with
boundless enthusiasm.' -
' Gen. Johnston's last great struggle in thejf.
S. Senate in February,lB6l, was worthy of the
noblest of Roman Senators. He denounced
Davis and other conspirators in unmeasured
terms, and declared that this government never
should be destroied. His last great speech in
reply to the traitors was delivered da the 3d of
'Starch—the day befoie the adjournment. lye
_Quote the following patriotic and pungent ex
tract from it:
But there are men who talk about cowardice,
cowards. courage, and all that kind of thing ;
end in this connection, I will say, once for all,
not boneingly, with no danger in my bosoin,
that these two eyes never looked upon any
being in the shape of mortal man that this
iseart of mine feared.
Sir, have we reached a point of time at
which -we dare not speak of treason? Our
foreWhers talked about it ; they spoke of, it in
the-Constitution of the country ; they have de
fined what treason is. Is it an offence, is it a
crime, is it an insult to recite the Constitution

At this point the traitors Jemmied flat the
galleries be elettred because of the hearty ap
plause of Gor.Nuisotirs- patriotic sentiments.
When order was 'restored lie rAutneq, :
Mr. Johnsoli -Or Tennessee. Mr. Presidont.
when I was ihttrupted by a ifilition to clear
the galleries, I was making a general allusion
to treason as detiniql in the Constitution Of the
United States, and-to those who Were traitors
and guilty of treason within • fin. simpe,,and
meaning of theAay'inill the Constituijimi :My
proposition *us, that if they would;show me
who wore guilty ',of the offences I have ennui: -
crated, I would show - them who were the trait
ors. That being' done, were 1 the President
;of the United. Sates, I would do as Thomas
Jefferson did in 2.1A/6 with Aaron Burr,' who
was charged with treason. ' I would hare !them,
arrested and tried far treason, and, if convicted;
by the Eternal God they should safer the penalty
of the law at the,-hands of the executioner. Sir,
treason must be punished. Its enormity and the
extent and deattk of the offence must be made
known. Tne *tie is not distant, if this Gov
ernment is pr,Fseirved, its Constitution obeyed,
and its law;s ; executed in every department,
when somethibg of this kind must be done.
But, sir, I alluded to the fact that Secession
has been brought about by usurpation. During
the last forty days, six States of this Cotifeder
;my hale been taken out of the Union ; how T
By the voice of •the people? No; it is dema
gogism to'talk of the people. By the voice of
the freemen of the Country'? No. By whom
has it been done? Have the people of South
Carolina passed upon the ordinance ,adopted by
their convention't No ; but a system of usurpa
tion was instituted, and a reign of terror Mau
pirated.' How was it in Georgia ? Have the
people there poised upon the ordinance ofSe
cession ? No. We know that there , was a
powerful party there, of passive, conservative
men, who have been oyerslaughed, borne down
and tyranny and usurpation have triumphed. A
convention passed an ordinance to take the
State out of tit% Confederacy ; and the very
'same convention tippointed delegates to go ton
congress to male a, cdristitution, without. con
nutting peahle.• So -with laattisianal—so
with Mississippi;, so with - all the six States
which-have, undertaken to form a new confed
eruey. Have the people been consulted ? Not
in a single instance. We are in the habit:of
saying that man is capable of self-government ;
that he has the right, the unquestioned right,
to govern himself; 'hut here, a government has
been assumed' over him ; it has been taken out
of his hands, and at Montgomery a set Of usur
pers are enthroned, legislating; and making con
stitutions and adopting them, without consult
ing the freethen of the country. Do we not
know it to be so?" Havethe people ofAlabama,
of Georgia, oCany of those States. passedupon
it T No ; but a constitution is adopted by those
men, with a provision that it may be changed
by a vote of two-thirds, Four votes-in a con
vention of six can change the whole7-organie
law of a people constituting six States. Is not
this a coup d'etat equal to any of Napoleon ?
Is it not u usurpation of the people's rights 7
In some of those States, even the flag of our
country has been - Changed. One State has the
palmetto, another has a pelican, and another
has the rattlesnake run up instead of the stars
and stripes. On a former Occasion, I spoke of
the origin of Secession: and "I traced its early
history to the garden of Eden ti the serpent's
wile and the serpent's wickedness beguiled, and
betrayed our first mother. After that oceurred.
and they knew light and knowledge, when their
Lord and Master appeared, they seceded, and
hid themselves from his presence. The ser
pent's wile and the serpent's wickedness first
started Secession, and now Secession brings
about a return of the serpent. Yes, sir; the wily
serpent, the rattlesnake, has peeff , substituted
as the emblem on the flag ,of one "of the seced
ing States; and that old flat, the 'stars and the
stripes, tinder which our fathers fought and bled
and conquered, and achieved our rights and our
liberties, ii pulled down and trailed in the dust: ,
Will the American people tolerate it! They
'will be indulgent; time, I- think is wanted; but
they' will not submit to it.
I have already suggested that the idea may
have entered into some minds, "if we cannot
get to he President and Vice President .of the
whole United • States, we may divide the.
Government, set up a new establishment., have
new offices, and monopolize them ourselves,
when we take our States out." Here we see a
President made, a Vice President made, Cabinet
officers appointed, and yet the great mass of
the people not consulted nor their assent ob
tained in any manner whatever. The people of
the country ought to he aroused to this condi
tion of things: they ought to buckle on their ar
mor; and, as 'eunnessee has done, (God_ bless
her!):by the exercise of the elective franchise,
by going to the ballot-box. under a new set of
leaders, repudiate and put down those men who
have carried these States out and unsurped a.
Government over their heads. I trust in God
that - the old flag of the Union will never be
struck. I hope it may long wave, and that we
may long hear the national air sung.
"The star:a )angled banner, long may wave, •
O'er the land' of the free and the home of the brave."
Long may we hear "Hail Columbia," that
good old national air; long may we hear, and,
never repudiate, the old tune of ;'Yankee Doo
dle !" Long may wave that gallant old flag
which went through the Revolution, and which
was borne by Tennessee and Kentucky at the
battle of New Orleans. And in the language of
another, while it was thus proudly and gallantly
unfurled as the emblem of the Union, the God
dess of Liberty hovered around, when "the
rockets, red glare" went. forth through the
heavens, indicating that the battle was raging,
and the voice of the old chief could be heard
rising above the din of the storm, urging his
gallant men on to the stern encounter, and
watched thei sue 'as the_ conflict grew &live,
and the result was doubtful; but when at length,
vietoryperehed uponyour standard, it was then;.

CAMP 'TWO \O ?1i ?CIA NA.. I:
June 2*, 1864.
More than 3 month has passed since I last
wrote to you froth nenr Kingston, Georgia. I
would liked to have written again before this,
but time would not allow. Since then we had
quite a stirring time. We left our camp near
Kingston on the, 23d of May, and crossed the
Etowaw river some six miles to the right of
Kiugsten. We crossed on a splendid bridge,
which the enemy in his hurry bad not time to
destroy. A few Miles south of the river we
found ourselves on the direct Atlanta road
again. On the 21th of May we marched hard
all day, and on the 25th until noon, when we
were halted on the north bank of the Pumpkin
Vine Creek: Now we could hear heavy volleys
of musketry several miles in our front, which
plainly to!d us "fighting Joe" was into them
again. Our infantry as they came up all cross
e'd the bridge over Pumpkin Vine Creek, and
battery after battery came up and pulled into
park. The ground the rebels chose to fight us
on this time whs so densely wooded that iirtil
lery could not be Used with any advantage.
Before night all the .batteries, with the excep
tion of one or two, of the sth and 20th Corps,
had pulled into park. Fortunately Generals
Hooker and Howard soon succeeded in driving
the enemy so that we could get some artillery
into position. On the morning of the 27th all
the batteriesfound themselves in position along
the with heavy works in front, and Battery
B got into a very hot place, -which has invari
ably been its luck since we started out on this
campaign. We had our Battery strongly for
tified within one hundred yards of .the enemy's
main line of works. During the afternoon of
the 27th we were in a desperately hot place,
and had it not been for our strong works half
of our men would have been killed. We had
only fife wounded, who were all shot through
the port holes. Three of these were "No. I"
at their pieces. If I were to give the details of
one day's fight after the other, it would fill one
side of your paper, so I will just give you de
tails of some of our warmest engagements.
Captain S. M.• McDowell is now Chief of Artil
lery in the Ist Division, 4th Corps, and is on
Maj. Gen 'Stanley's staff. His command was
very sorry to lose him, but he richly deserves
the honorable position he now fills. Captain
Simonson, who was Chief of Artillery of the lit
Division, was killed in one of the late engage.
' meats while getting; a position for one of his
batteries. He was a heroic and daring officer,
and was beloved by !all who knew him. We
have now but two commissioned officers pres
ent 'With-our Battery, and are entitled to five.
Lieut. Ziegler is in command. He is a brave
'man and good soldier, and I know will take the
Battery through any fight with credit. Since
Capt. McDowell is on Gen. Stanley's staff, he
had a musket ball put through his cap. Lieut.
E. F. Shatzer, commanding the third section,
had it in the hottest place any part of our Bat
tery has been yet. The whole Battery was or
dered to the left to support the 2nd Division,
(Newton's) 9th Corps, and there was only pc,:
sition for . two. pieces., Lieut. Shatzer advanced
within one hundred and fifty yards of the ede
ni's strong fortifications, ;Odd- were Filly
thirty feet thick. lie had no cover Whatever
for hisrnen, but open he would, and fired thirty
•six roundi with the two pieces before retiring.
At onepiece he lost one man killed; and at the
other, our. badly wounded.... These were all
the ca*nalties, buttbere was scarcely a man
but hail his garments cut with ballets. The
Lieutenant had a bole threugh `his overcoat.
Gen. Gee. IT. Thomas personally;. complimented
our Battery for its accurate shooting. and the
good Mmduct of the men in the fate of the en
emy. We-have frequently gone out on thpskir

The Death of Capt. M'Dowell.
Correepandonao of t:,ho Franklin Repository,

In the Field, Georgia, Juno 30, 186 C - -
Only a few dayd have elapsed sinee I wrote
to you and little did I then think that so . soon
-I would be called, upon State the painful in
telligence of the, death our dear Captain.
Capt. S. M. M'Dowell was - ,stantly killed on
the morning of the -29 June while along
the front line of works. The ball that did the
fatal work entered under his left arm near the
heart and eame.out on his right shoulder, car
rying away his right p'assant. Nothing is more
calculated to depress a command than to loose
a Teommander who is beloied by all. You can
scarcely imagine the gloom that was spread
over Buttery B, on the Morning our noble
leader fell! Thero was scarcely an officer or
soldier in the Ist Division that was not familiar
with his pleasant face and serene countenance,
and they all most sincerely mourn,histoss. llis
loss will nerve our men and stimulate them to
the performance of more severe and nobler
deeds to crush the foe that so wickedly brought
abmit this accursed rebellion which has already
cost us so much treasure and so unich blood.
Capt. M'Dowell was relieved from staff duty at
his own request on the morning he was kill e d.
He made this request because of the few offi
cers in his command. The boys of the Battery
were much rejoiced , that would again be
with us, but -oh -how brief was his stay' .He
bad scarcely returned until we lost him for
ever! • • - - '' '.l
Capt. 3l'Dowell entered' the service out of
Pure and patrintie motives and through an un
selfish devotion to his country. While he lived
he never left his 'post and when ho died his
country lost one of its bravest and noblest de
fenders. Shortly after the Captain was killed
iitirmen made a' charge - in 'front and on the
right of our Battery, but did not succeed in tak
iiig the rebel works. A great many of ourmen
fell while endeavoring to climb the rebel works.
Jeff. Davis's Division of the 4th Corps lead the
Charge and his loss was very severe. General
Harker's.and Gen. Whitaker's Brigades took
part in the charge. I shall never forget, Gen.
Harker's pleasaet smiles as' he crossed: the
works at our Battery and raised his hat cheer
ing his men on to victory or death. Gen. Har
ker fell in the midst of the charge mortally
wounded and has since died. , • '
Col. M'Cook commanding a Brigade was also
wounded. Our loss here in wounded officers
ands men was terrible. 'A :great many were
- I never saw more deSperately wounded
men in my life. , On the night. of the:29th the
enemy made several unsuccessful charges. We
