an idea that I might by worth some

So 1 - said yes, an'd ,;Gran by proposed

I'd alWays been a temperate man. I
actually did not know what effect wine
would have upon me ; but coming to
drink more of it than I ever had before
at the club table, I found it put steam
on. After'so many glasses I wanted to
talk ; after so many more I did.
It seemed like . .somebody else, the
words were so ready. My little ideas
came out and were listened to. I made
sharp hits ; I indulged in repartee ;
told stories ; even came to puns. I
heard somebody say to Granby : "By
George, that's a man worth knowing.—
I thought him dull at first." Yet I
knew it was better. to be quiet Ned

like a bar room."

in:the middle-of the room like a signal
flag, at a station, and seeing two Jo's.

She went'and . locked herself and the
baby in the spare•bed-room.
One c,ald night, as I dressed to go, Jo
:stood bilfore me.

And If meant it ; but at twelve that
night I felt that I had forgotten the
promise and my resolution.
I couldn't go home to Jo. I made up
tiny mind to sleep on the club sofa and
leave the place for good next day. Al

It was morning. A waiter_ stood
ready to brush my coat. I saw a grin
on his black face. My head seemed
about to burst ; my hand trembled ;

Jo's words came to my mind. Was I

Was:just in time.
The San Francisco glittered in the
morning sun. The cars were,filling
rapidly. From my post I coul hear
the people talking—bidding each other
good-bye, promising to write and come

laughed. I heard him say, respectful

Then I was alone and wondering
whetherl should run faster or slower.
I did something, the cars rushed on at
a fearful rate.

heard some questions.

what I should do. Was it this, or that!

shrieks of pain ; the unwounded be

NO- (2 CARTER SPEECH OF UEN
BEAL FORREST OF FORT
The Memphis Avalanche publishes
the, following report of a speech made
in Brownsville, Tennessee, last week,
by,,Ueneral Forrest, who massacred the
negroes of Fort Pillow. The numerous
assassinations by the Kiiklux Klan has
rendered the calling out of the militia
necessary for the protection of all loyal
citizens, black and white. In ease
these amusements should be interfered
with by the Governor and Legislature,
"General Forrest and his associate gen
erals thrlaten war and "no quarter:"
Mr. President and Fellow-Citizens—l
did not think that I would be called
upon to address you at this time, as it
was intended, and, I believe, expected
that I would speak 'to you to-night.. I
have been laboring under sickness for a
few days, and have besuffering from
a sore throat, so-that at the present time
I will be only able to s y a few-words
to you. Last week 1 received a dis
patch from Generals CI eatham, BreWn,
gnarls and others to the effect that I
was wanted in Nashville in regard to
sonic important business in connection
with the calling out of the militia, and
when I received that dispatch, 'started
at once. When I arrived in Nashville,
I found fifteen Confederate generals
engaged in. a conference with about
thirty leading citizens. Great fears had
been expressed about the calling out of
the militia, as many were of the opin
ion that it. would lead to bloodsheiVf a
Very serious character. Governor
Brownlow had stated in his message to
the Legislature that all who belonged
to the Kuklux Klan were to be declared
outlaws, and he gave out, and declared
that these Klaus were composed of sol
diers who had been in the Confederate
army. I believe that Governor Brown
low thinks that all Confederatesoldicrs,
and, in fact the wholeDemocratie party
in the South belong to the guklux .
Clan—[Cheers Auld laughter.] All are
declared outlaws; for the governor says
that he has no doubt they belong to the
klan, if there is such a clan. TheLegis-,
lature has passed some laws, I believ,
on this subject, in which the militia
are called on to shoot down all the Ku
kluxes they may find, and they need
fear no prosecution for doing so. That
is, simply, that they may call a Con
federate soldier a Kuklux, shoot him
down, and no harm should befal any of
the militia who may commit such an
outrageous net ; for Governor Brow i i low
has proclaimed that they were all out
laws. [Applause.] When this is done.
I tell you, fellow-citizens,‘ that there
will be civil war. If the Radical Leg
islature, with Governor Brownlow,
arms the negroes, and tells them to shoot
down all Confederate soldiers, -on the
ground that they arc members of the
Kuklux Klan, as they call it, and out
laws, then, in my opinion, there will
be a civil war in Tennessee [Applause.]
It is not otrr policy to get intoanother
civil war, or i war of any kind at the
present time, as it would housed against
us and Weaken our cause in the North,
and I halve• advised every Confederate
soldier whom I have met lately to do
all in his power to prevent war of any
kind taking place in Tennessee.
[As there was a very large crowd in
the court house square, Gen. Forrest
was requested.to go outside and contin
ue his speech, as all were very 'anxious
taillelLAM.,,,#?,,,neST9//MIY did so,
Gen. Forrest .continued his remarks
by saying : I received a letter from Gen.
S. R. Anderson, of Nashville, a few
days ago, and he stated to me in that
letter that ho considered the
Gov. Browniow, in relation to the
Militia, a declaration of war if the
militia. were called out under liis proc
lamation. This is also my opinion. l
can assure you, fellow-citizens, that I,
for one, do not want any more war. I
have seen it in all its phases, and be
lieve'me when I say so, that I don't
want to she any more bloodshed, nor
do I want to see negroes armed to shoot
down white men. If they bring this
war upon us, there is one thing 1 will
tell you—that I shall not shoot any
negroes so long as I can see a white
Radical to shoot, for it is the Radicals
who will be to blame for bringing on
1 can assure you, fellow-citizens, that
I shall at all times be ready to go for
ward and assist the sheriffor any other
officer in carrying out the laws of the
State, and in order to 'assist him tho
roughly, I will get as many of my oil!
soldiers as possible to go with I Ile.
But if they send the black men to hunt
those Confederate soldiers whom they
'call Kuklux, then 1 will say to you,
"Go out and shoot the Radicals." If
they do want to inaugurate a civil war,
the sooner it comes the better, that we
may know what to do. [Applause.] I
do not wish it understood that I um
inciting you to war, for, as I told you
before, I have seen all the war ainl all
the bloodshed'l want. I wish yCu to
exhaust all honorable means l efore
you do anything, and I would laefer
that you should suffer before I should
see civil war inaugurated in this coun
try. We have already lost, all but out
honor by the last war, and I must say
that, in order to he men, we inust pro
tect our honor at all hazards, and we
must also protect our wives, our homes
and our families. [Cheers.]
I wish distinctly to state that I am
not ifg, , ainst the colored man, neither
have fever been against the colored
man. II carried forty-five of them into
the war with me, and alt but one re
mained with medurit g the war. The
next time I saw the o e who deserted,
he was in the hands o 'the metropolitan
police forstealing. [ heers and laugh
ter.] I wish you to do nothing that
will give the Radica party any pre
tense to bring on a war. I warn you
particularly against this. They woald
like nothing better than a war, for
through i tthey might carry the election,
and by this means keep office and con
tinue to rob and bleed us. If however,
the war should come, and I hope it
never will, I want no drones in my
drum of bees. [Applause] If lam
forced into a collision, I can tell you
that every man shall be compelled to
do his duty. They have got to take
sides with us or the other party. We
will have no neutrals; all must show
what they are. If they are not for ti 4
then they will be'against us.
he a unit on this tery grave quest ion.
The militia will be a unit, and we nmst
be in the same position. My fellow
citizens, I assert it is a soletnn thing to
think of, for I have no doubt that you
-have all had enough of war. You have
seen war and you know what it is, and
therefore we ought, as I said before
exhaust 41 honorable means to prevent
It coming among us. But if it does
come, I will do all in power to meet it,
let the consequences be whatthey may.
,[Loud and prolonged cheering]
I - now want to say a few Words to the
black men who are hero before me, and
what I wish is to ask them to stand by
the men who raised you, who,nursed you
when you were sick, and who took care
of you when you were little children. I
say, stand byhem who ,are your real
friends, and 1 a your Loyal youoyal Leagues,
where you, Ire taught, to refuse the
franchise to those whO have always
proved your friends: I tell you that if
you will only, stand by us that we :will
always stand byjyou, and do as mgch
for you as any white men can do for
you. Yo can have no interestwitli any
scalawags and carpetcbaggers, [Loud
cheers and laughter.' All they want
from you is the little money you have
got. The Northern people -.say that
these scalawags and carpet-baggers were
ithieves;and robbers in their own section
of the country. [Applause.] Then what
can you expect from them ? [Applause.]
voice. General, there are a few
Southern carpet-baggers and scalawags
General Forrest. Yes, there are, and
lam ashamed to own it, that they
were nurtured on this soil. They are
too lo* for me to speak about, and I
have no words to Fxpress'my contempt
for such persons. I feel to-day that
Governor 13rownlow:is one of thatclass.
[Hisses.] He has escaped to this time
because he has been shaking with sick
ness and weakness, and is considered
crazy, but if he inaugurates civil war in
this ,Mute, then 1 tell hint he must stif
fer the consequences. [Cheers.]
When.the war closed i surreidered
honorably and desire to do my d ity to
my country, but I love the soldiers and
those who fought with me during the
war. i love them as I love my own
life; and I never intendythat they shall

to raise in their defence. Nireat cheer
Fellow soldiers, we haVe stood by
each other before, and now I want to
know if you will stand by hie and by
the other Confederate generals in what
we did a few day ago at Nashville.
[Cries of "We will we will," and great
cheering.] (lent 'men, 1 feel I am
getting hoarse, an I have lately suffered
roan 0 severe cold! and I fear I will
not be able to spea to you much lon
ger. [Cries 01" G )on,General,goon."]
Well, I now wish to speak to you a
few minutes about Ike Democratic Con
vention lately held in New :York.
While I was present at that convention!
I learned that some of those who called
us their friends were not in favor of
enfranchising the soldiers of the South
who fought in the late war. Now, I
want to know how that is. I was taken
cheerfully by the hand by the leading
Democrats of the North, while I was in
New York, and they showed me the
greatest friendship and displayed the
greatest kindness towards me. !That is
the reason I want to know whether it
is true about the remarks that! certain
parties that are against enfranchit..infr,
the :,okliers. One of that patty k Mr.
Leftwich,) has been nominated here
to-day, and I want him to come form, and
and state whether he has ever said that
the Southern soldiers Should not be en
franchised, or whether lie is opposed to
giving us all our rights. When I hear
him deny this rumor I stand ready to
support him, but not till then ; but
without it I cannot do it,, and neither
can you. [Great che'erint.] 1 have - la
letter in my pocket from Washington,
and I am sorry to learn from it that Mil.
Johnson is said to, have pone' against
the Democratic pally and against the
South, on the ground that we of the
South who Were delegates of the eon
ventibn did not press luS nomination.
I did press it, and used all my influence
with the Sou Bern delegates—General.
Hampton an . others—and procured
him fifty votes. 'We saw, however,
that lid could not be nominated, and
we had, therefore, to change,, after sev
eral ballots had taken Pace. The oth
ers would not contimervoting for Mr.
Alinsorr, and I di , of think there

several ballots hat been cast. Since
that time he has se it me my pardon,
for which I am tro y thankful.
Now, fellow-cif ens, I think it is
right for Mr. Leftwich to declare this
evehing whether' he is in favor of en
franchising the Southern soldiers or not.
r feel it is important that the Southern
soldier& should know whether you have
nominated a man vliose sympathies
are wit those who fought for the "Lost
Cause," and is prepared to give us all
our rights, [Cheers.] If he tells you
frankly and freely he is,' which I he
liev,e be will, then I for one am willing
to And him to Congress. [Cheers, athid
which General Forrest retired.]

brok .11 for a Roupd House, and Hotel,
both of which are now near completed.
On the7lst of May the track layers ' ar
rived within five miles of this post; it
was on a Friday, and the contractors
were anxious to stop at this post over
Sunday. So they made the laborers of
double wages for the day, to show their
skill in handling rails ; bright and ear
ly they were at work, and before . sun
down they were passing the post amid
a salvo of Artillery from the Battery
stationed here, at sundown they stopp
ed work, having completed kib miles of
track ; a feat f believe unprecedented
in the history of Rail road construct
ing. Then the city of Laramie sprung
into existence, and in six weeks time
had a population of 3000, composed of
Rail-road employes, dealers iu dry
gOodS; groceries, liquors, &c., with mi
ners, speculators, .gamblers, horse
thieves, and a goodly number of Cyp
rians. My first visit to the city was
the evening of the sth of July, a Sun;
day evening ; all the stores and drink
saloons were open, and appeared to
be doing a thriving business ; hearlog
a Bend playing in the street, I walked
that way, and found myself infront of
what was called the big tent, occupied
as a gambling house ; looking in I saw
a Bar at which were standing a num
ee.--„, -- ,,, .....1.-.aedelesethe-i-trialz neooes
sary to fit them for the hands .of the
:amblers who were plying their voca
tions on all sides ; monti, faro, rem),
sweat, vingt-et-un, each had ts Vaariee,
who were fast losing their money, and
their senses, Turning away, I I saw the
four or five dined houses, well patron
ized, plenty I ding found who were fool
ish enough to spend their dollar for a
dance of ten minutes concluding with
the call of promenade to the Bar. One ,
dollar being the fee for a dance and
drink. Disgusted with what I had
seen, I turnd homeward having a
walk of a mil and a half across thel
Prairie,. which by, the way is not always
safe ;if l a melees known - to carry much
money about with him. There are to
be found in this country, Men, who, do
not scruple to take life, in their attempts
to rob the unwary. A few Weeks ago
there was in Laramie a saloonnd
dance house known as the Diana; ept
by a . couple of young men, whose
characters were not above suspicion,;,,
men went to the Mayor with complaint -
that they had been robbed in-the place,
hut le the absence of proof they were_
al ways acquitted, finally two or three
men were missing, and the mutilated
body of one being found on the banks
of - the Laramie river, and traced to the
Diana saloon, the p'roprietors wore ar
rested, and confined at this post ; One
was released in a fewi days ; the •other
whose mune was Kidd, was held until
the 91 I) of- the present month wherajhe"
e as set at liberty, on account of the — db-;
settee o f proof directly implicating
him ; the ( same night he-attempted to
kill - a soldio at this post, and fired at
the Deputy , U. S. Marshal at -Laramie;
he Was arrested on the 12th :,again, and
the same right was taken from the oil
eers, by a Party of Vigilanters, and the
next morning was found hanging by
the neck in, an unoccupied building
just out of town. A few weeks ago,
four horse thieves were hung near the
North Platte about 40 miles west of
Isere, the Vigilanters only acted a little
more promptly, they would be doing
the country a great service.
Last night, a party attacked the mail
carsick s from this post ; but they- pre
sented their revolvers •at the wrong
man the one who was carrying the mail
being unmolested, put spurs to his
horse, and reached the post in safetY,
the other thinking discretion the better
part of valor, surrendered his horse to
the highwaymen, and footed it into the
Fort. A squad of Cavalry was at once
scut out, but did not succeed in finding
the man or!horse. But I fear I am in
truding onf•your space, so I will close
with the promise of another soon.
