Truth From the South.
• Hon. James L. SeWard, of Georgia,'
was' for Mk years a member of Congress,
from 18.53 to 1850, and was ono 4f the
ablest and most reasonable of the 11'.2ou
them RePresent.atives. He is still, liv
ing in ,southern Georgia where he
holds a high social position• andi pos
sesses great personal influence. He re-.
eently made a speech at Atlanta to a
large audience, in which he stated' the
trtithabout the South and furnished a
complete answer to the clamor. - of the
Copperheads against Reconstruction.—
Here is a report of his remarks :
FELLOW-CUIZENS.-.1 appear before
you as a Georgian to speak to Georgi
ans; to address you on the great ques
:tions before the country. I desire to
wound the feelings of no one. I wish
I to address your reason, and not your
passions. Do you know that you are
upon the eve of a revolution ? I tell
you it is so.' I' was in the Charleston
Convention when the late revolution
was inauguf,ated. opposed secession
then, and was denounced for it.—What
is the result ? To-day we are the poor
est people in the world. If (lens.
Toombs and Cobb made so sad a mis
take then, I warn you not to follow
them now. You followed them through
'four"years of bloody war, which has
l'eft, the eountry filled with widows and
orphans, deprived of means of support,
and .ou r people a conquered and oppress
ed race. But I forgive them, and will
not say that they were not patriotic ;
but 'they made a mistake. While at
Washington, in 1861, they were contin
ually sending telegraphic dispatches ad
vising Georgia, •to secede. I don't
charge them with crime, but I do say
they made a mistake then, and are un
safe leaders now. Public liberty is lost,
and how shall we regain it ? We arc a
conquered people / and must accept
such terms as the conqueror dictates.—
I assert that Andrew Johnson put
Worse terms on us than the Radical par
ty has ever imposed. He appointed a
Provisional Governor ; a convention
was called'; the ordinance of secession
annulled a Legislature an d State
..$11111....347 bat
tually required, , at the point of the bay
, onet, that we should abolish slavery af
ter it had been abolished by military
power and the proclathation of the
,The reconstruction acts of Congress
were not the first terms submitted to
the people of the South. We rejected
the-first and most liberal terms sub
mitted to us, thus still showing a spirit
of opposition to the Government. The
reason why these reconstruction laws
were imposed upon us was • that the
Northern people believed the Southern
leaders were opposed to reconstruction. ,
All of this has been the result of the
teachings of such men as Toombs,
Cobb and Ben Hill.
If y, o u accept the constitutional
amendment, known as Article Four
teen, you will, by that means, put the
suffrage question in the hands of the
people of the State.
Ido not look upon the enfranchise
ment of the uegroes in the same light
as Toombs, Cobb, and other 'leaders of
the Democratic party do. They take
the'Position that the enfranchisement
of the negro degrades the white man.
The elevation of the negro does not
degrade the white man. , And I tell
you, colored people, if the North says
you Pave the right to vote in the South,
and a lmit you to the rights of citizens,
you live the right to demand that they
admi you to the same rights and priv
iley,in the North. 1 don't admit
that the Southern people are inferior to
any, race on the earth. We are conquer
ed, aad the North has put harsh meas
ures upon us, but let us accept them,
and get the State under the control of
the people of the State. The fourteenth
article will become a part - of the Con
stitution whether Georgia adopts it or
not. North and South Carolina and
Florida will soon adopt it, and whether
Georgia adopts it or not, if she returns
to the Union she will have to accept it,'
But the dentobracy think if Seymour
is elected these reconstruction measures
will be set aside. Well, let , us see.—
Suppose they elect, Seymour, together
with a majority in the House of Repre=
sentatives ; they can't change' the Sen
ate for four, years to conic. Then what
will they do ? Will they inaugurate a
revolution with Seymour at the head
and take possession of the government,
anti turn the Senate out? If so, why
Las not Andy Johnson, as Commander
iniChief of the Army and Navy, done
This heretofore ? I tell you the people
Of North will stand by the government,
and no matter what they tell you about
'lighting for your rights, in opposition
to the government, they will not do it
when the test comes. We aredeceived
by that cry in, 1861. .I tell you if they
can't get 7 . nybody else to fight you,
they will ight you with the panners.of
Europe and the negroes. - , ,
•IThemegre is a dangerous politicateler
rfient, in this con utry, because they ,are
abused, driven to it. All of this is the
result of the teachings og such' men as
Bilk ToOmbs and cofib. , Let them
Stop their abusive,harangues and my

and the State again to peace and pros

Grant at thetilittle of l
the Wilderness.
To the . Editor of the lyashington Chronicle:
Sir,; The bright sun .of the 3d of May,
1864, saw the Army ,of the Potomac.
wifiding its ' way across the Rapidan
into "the Wildernesa." • The subse
quoit clash of the two armies came On
Thursday the 4th of, May, with what
result is well knewn.' The'morning of
thealfth came, and thus far we could
only say, "we have met tbeenem; we
have measured swords; , the los has
been fearful on either side, but W have
not yet crushed the Army of Virginia."
Before us, battered and sore, lay Lee's
veterans beaten back from most of their
former positions, but strongly fortified
behind breastworks, and lacking not a
whit of that terrible desperation which
they had exhibited for three long years
of blood, and full of confidence in their
ability to re Peal any' attack; a dense
forest surrounded us on all sides, and
behind us rolled the Rapidan; au at
tempt to eross.whieh, in case of adefeat;
would have been equivalent to annihi
lation. Repulsed again and again,
with'bad roads, with the dark pine
woods literally. blue with our dead and
wounded, it was positively necessary to
do one or two things—to retreat, or to
endeavor, by a flank movement, to
turn'Lee's right. To think of fighting
further, after it had been clearly de
monstrated that an Army of twice our
number could not dislodge the enemy,
would have been olly. Pleaded with
to retreat across the Rapidan by a n um
ber of prominent eneral officers Gen
eral Grant.refused to listen to the prop
osition and said : entlemen t I cannot
consider your recomniendation ;• my
course doesn't lie An that direction ' it
lies toward Richmond." I
The forenoon of the (lay referred to
pass away with no battle, although a
brisk insilade from the sharpshooters
wits kept up. Meade's headquarters
'vere on a beautiful pine-capped hill or
mound toward the right of our line, and
overlooked the dense woods where the
2nd Corps boys lay, along the Block
road, with their skirmish line well
thrown out.
General Grant was aL Meade's hen:d
elimiters on the hill referred to during
the afternoon, arranging his plans for
future action. A score of civilians
among them, I think, Mr. Dana, of the
New York ,Sire, then Assistant Secre
tary of War, and Mr. Washburne,
member of Congress from Illinois,
were present, including hungry news
paper correspondents, who would have t
given their horses for the slightest inti
mation of Gen. Grant's i tetAtions or
'the means ofgetting through theguerilla
country behind us to their respective
papers the little information they .did
possess. Suddenly, at about three
o'clock in the afternoon, a brisker fusi
lade of sharpshooters was heard in the
direction of the intersection of the two
roads where a portion of the 211 Corps
lay. •
The firing increased in rapidity ; shells
from rebel batteries began to burst over
the tree-tops ; the quick gleaming if
rebel bayonets vas seen in the dark
woods, and a moment more and long
lines of gray passed rapidly across and
open space in front of the coveted - cross
roads, and disappeared in the jungle.
Their object wits evident at a; glance,
and the necessities of the case required
immediate attention. They were char
ging the 2d Corps line and having, by
mits - ut. arrtna cTltVeit' lAMB g uii
ward to what they thought was certain
At the time when the enemy was
forming his divisions for the charge,
General Grant was standing on the
skirts of the pine grove referred to,
leaning with one hand on a sapling,
smoking a cigar and surveying the sur
rounding country. The movement of
the rebel commander did not escape his
attention, and on observing it lie re
moved his cigar, and, gazing for a mo
merit towards the woods on his right,
turned and beckoned a staff officer to
his side. In a low ,tone, and without
showing by his demeanor the •slightest
discomposure, he gave the aid instruc
tions to forward by the telegraph line,
which connected every division of his
army with ' head quarters, orders to
commanders of Corps to dispose their
troops in such a manner as to check
mate the pending movement of the
enemy, and again turned his eyes
towards the woods on his right, still
smoking quietly; and speaking to no
one. The' writer of this was sitting
within a few feet of the General at the
time, and was intently watching him,
wondering whether under the leader
ship of that plain, unassuming little
man,dhe Army 'of the Potatnac was
destined to better luck than under its
former unfortunate commanders. I
revert to the circumstances of my dis
trusting that same unassuming little
man with a smile when I remember
how soon afterward he convinced the
world of his superior generalship.
The hurried manner of the aid as he
left the Gener i es side attracted the at
tention of tl large of officers
near by, andNin Th. moment a score of
ii i
glasses were le elect in the direction
their chief was • zing. Simultaneously
several spran& f . , up, and, approaching
the General, Called his attention to the
suspiCious movements of the enemy.
Without removing his eyes he replied,
calmly : "I have been watching them
for some time; they are preparing fur a
charge on the 2d Corps'' line". By this
time Meade was at his side, pale, ner
vous, and apparently be in
the saddle at once; but a few words
from Grant in a low tone, a smile lit up
the grim warrior's face, and all signs of
anxiety vanished. Together they stood,
observing the enemy's movements, un
til the rebel lines crossed.the open space
referred to, Grant smiled with a kind
of exuberant satisfaction as they disap
peared in the woods. In thirty seconds
after the jungle rang with the rebel yell
(the same as. that heard at the New
York Convention), and a continuous
peal of musketry, and then commenc
ed one of the fiercest hand-to-hand en
counters during the war, lasting for
nearly half an hour. The result history
has told.' Hanceek's men, weary from
hard fighting on the day previous, were
scarcely prepared for such a desperate
assault, . and after a terrible struggle
gave way, leaving the - enemy in .full
possession of the cross-roads. They
wore taken nt a dear price, however, as
the enemy lost five' to one in eharghie
across the open space directly in front of
our works.
Meanwhile, by General Grant's order
troops had been rapidly transferred from
our right and left toward the centre, be
hind and at right angles with the rebel
line holding the Block road. But shall
the enemy be left in quiet possession of
that all important position? By no
means. Where is Stun. Carroll, the
dashing dare-devil of the Second corps?,
Ready for work as usual, but with on-1
ly-a part of his brigade, resting behind
Hancoek's headquarters. " Send in
your best officer," was Grant's order Id
Hancock ; "dislodge the enemy, but
don't pursue - too far." In a moment.
General Carroll, with one arm in a
sling from a terrible wound received the
day previous,, was at the bead of his
veterans charging down upon the en
emy with a.cheer. The works were re
captured ard the enemy driVen back
into the flicket—for what? Only to
meet deathlor capture, for what with
tho are In ont, on their right, and on
their left, hardly a'greyback escaped
to tell the tale of the terrible encounter
in the thicket and theArap into which
they •had unconsciously been led by
their own officers.
' . When the smoke rose thickest over •
the woods, and when the rebel yell
rang joudest, General Grant was as cool
and Confident as when at his headquar
ters in Washington, and never once dur
ing that struggle did he show by his
Manner that he doubted in the least the
final result. i ' . ,
_Tt is in such moments'as theSe that
cool intrepidity is required of a com
mander. A moment's hesitation, the
exhibition of unseemly haste and ner
vousness, has lost many a battle; for
the soldier, eagerly looking into the
face of his commander to ascertain "the
situation," is either buoyed up with
hope or cast down with fear. Had the
whole of headquarters gone dashing up
and down the line at the critical mo
ment when the enemy held the cross
roads, betraying their apprehension by
their general demeanor the contagion
(for fear is contagious) would have
spread throughout the army, and Might
have resulted MAO ignominious rout.
But, as it was, Grant remained placid;
his plans had been thoroughly laid,and
lie waited the result with a quiet email
deuce which told on all around him.
At the commencement of the attack
an aid from Hancock's headquarters,
dust covered and pale with excitement,
bearing the message from Hancock that
his line had been vigorously attacked
by the enemy, and requesting immedi
ate reinforcements. These, it is un
necessary to say, were already moving
to Hancock's support, and, as stated,
arrives in time to aid in cutting off the
retreat of Gen. Lee's charging column.
A late messenger froth, Second Corps
headquarters gave the intelligence that
our line had been broken, and that the
enemy was •in full .possession of the
cross roads. Still the same stoical calm
ness was exhibited by Gen. Grant as he
gave the order fo their dislodgthent,
which, as we have stated, was ettected
by Gen. Carroll's brigade. A third
message from Ha icock detailed the
hurling back and . unihilation of the
charging party; ii id Grant remained
as cool and undistu 'bed as before, his
.general manner indicating that he was
not at all surpried at,' but had expected
the result. 1
The value of Perfect coolness in . bat- ,
tlic, especially in, a commander, cannot
be over-estimated for many a struggle
would have resulted in defeat on the
inareh to Appomattox Court house had
not our "boys in blue" seen their lit
tle General with his headquarters well
up to the front, and noticed his bearing
as that of one perfeetly confident of the
1:(2:,.,:-3 of his p1an5.„,,....
At Spottsylvania Coll ft HIMISO, white
tidilg along our line when an engage
ment was in progress, a ramrod arum
the rebel lines came whistling through
the battle smoke, and barely missed the
General. Turning to an officer, he re
ma\rked, with a smile, "The enemy
must be hard-up tbr ammunition.” No
dodging, no turning back for Grant.,
but on he rode at a leisurely pace until
he had reconnoitered our whole line in
person, and knew the disposition of
every brigade in the Army of the Po
tomac. And this is the same little iiittii
who afterward received the s words of
Robert E. Lee—" an honor," remarks

New York World to ,belittle the success,
ses of General Grant are. beneath tlie
contempt of any sensible man, espec
ially of soldiers. It is the attempt Of a
leading Democratic organ. to glorify
their friends, the rebels, and to villify
the soldiers of the Union army by in
sinuations of cowardice. Its arguments
are passed as falsehoods which are too
transparent to obtain credence, and t
is astonishing after this bow any soldier
who fought that the Union might live
can support a party of which that vil
lainous sheet is the' mouthpiece, The
force under Grant at the first battle of
the Wilderness was but 98,019, as shown
by official reports instead of 200,000, as
represented by this shameless . rebel
sheet, while Lee's army numbered 72,-
278. When it is remembered that twice
or thrice the number is required by an
an attacking army to that - acting on the
defensive in a fortified position, it must
be admitted by friend and foe that
Grant's Virginia campaign was one of
the most brilliant and successful in mil
itary annah4. Let this fact be remem
bered, that the enemy's lines of ' supply
were short and in a friendly country;
that he in variably fought from he'll lid ,

NO. 37.
Yesterday , a strange and terrible spec-.
facie was witnessed in Cheatham Conn
ty,nbout 19 miles from this city, on the
line of the Nashville and, the North
\Western Railroad. About 1 o'clock,
while the, mew 'employed on the Planta
tion.of- Joshuiautham"Were going in
to a field to pluck fodder, the sun being
hidden behind clouds at the time, and
a genelid'' gloom prevading the 'sky,
they were much frightened and con
fused by the apparent opening of the
clouds, judging from the description of
the henomenon; not more than five or
or six degrees north of the zenith. They
judge the cloud 'to be about three-quar
ters of a mile high. The strange sight
attracted their notice. A brilliant whit
ish red glare oversPread an immense
mass of ;black clouds, on the center of
which appeared a funnel-like aperture
about four or five feet in diameter, the
sides of which presented the -appear
ance of ragged flames darting like fiery
tongues, and licking' and - lapping at a
large white object passing with incon
ceiveable rapidity down through the
aperture. When it left the mass of cloud _
it did not appear to fall in a perpendic
ular direction, but sloped at an inclina-;
tion of some 10 or 15 degrees • from a
plumb line, and grew mere- intensely
bright as it approached the earth. It,
swept down like a bright angel of death
and destruction. It struck the earth
with a sound like a sudden, terriffeclap
of thunder, and seemed to make the .
surrounding hills quiver to their founda
tions. Great numbers of trees on their
rocky sides fell, and continued falling
for several minutes afterward, making
noises like the prolonged verberations
of the thunder among picky cliffs. The
men were about 4.00 yards from the
place where the fiery missive from the
sky struck, were afraid to go and
examine te place for several hours af
terward. They took courage, howeyer,
and, being joined by numbers - of
the people living in the surrounding,
neighborhood, they proceeded to the
place, and found that it had struck
upon a fiat ledge of rocks in a wagon
way leading from a -farm house to the
public road.. The fragments of stone
-were. thrown arodnd for several rods in
all directions; the ledge, said
to be three feet thick, without any
seams, was disturbed for a distance of
about 50 feet, split and torn up in frag
ments ; the soil,' which was spread in
thin layers all over it, looked as if it had
passed through a sieve. At the point
where the strange body came in con
tact with the rock there appeared to be
no storm at all, hut ai very fine, white,
floury sort of paste, which was quite
bor!and a steam ascended out of the
hole ill which it had buried itself, which
was too hot to approach.
The place where it struck remained
hot three clays, but a copious shoWer of
rain having fallen, which temporarily
swelled the streams and water i'courses,
a largelllood poured down on the 'place
from tlie'neighboring hills, sending up
a constant and immense column of
steam. The earth around the place' for
several yards was quite hot. This gave
us the ilea that the rerolite which. had
struck must be of great size. The col
umn of steam continued to- ascend all
night and presented a - wierd spectacle
amid the gloom and in the silent depths
• of the woods. It could be seen from
the surrounding hills like a tall ghost,
changing its position betimes, and its
t tit fir s ntzti Es witalrlyj U.S morning ap
proached, inciting away in the light of
the rising sun. At ten or eleven o'clock
that day we organized a squad of about
ten ' with ,drills and other quarrying
tools, and commenced the work of ex
cavation. • We found great nemhere of
rents and cracks in the rocks as we de
scended: Not much poWder was lived
ed after the first blast. We did
. inot
propose to work all,round the Imre; but
began live or six yards. away frbm the
lips of the orifice, and continued to
work on that side alone; when -we
reached a depth of about 20 feet we came
to the terolite, s ormass of metal; still
hot, and covered outside with a slight
film or coating of oxide. -It ig wedge

the Supposition that It was globular as
