e declined a renomination. Another curious fact is this, that every Northern President had associated with him a Southern man as Vice-President. Thus John Adams had Thomas Jefferson; John Quincy Adams had J. C. Calhoun; Martin Van Buren had R. M. Johnson; Pierce had Wm. R. King; Buchanan had J. C. Breckinridge. On the other hand, Jackson served one term with J. C. Calhoun. Harrison and Tyler, his associates, were both from Virginia, and Lincoln and Johnson were both from the South. Of thesJohnson were both from the South. Of these same eighty years, the South had a Chief Justice on the Supreme Court Bench for sixty-three years, or more than three-fourths of the time. The purity and wisdom of these Southern Justices made them the pride of the nation. All the wars, foreign and domestic, have been under the conduct and control of Southern-born Presidents; the war of 1812; the Algerine war; the Black Hawk war; the Seminole war; the Mexican war; the war of the second rebellion. All the acquisitions of territory have

n for the administration of affairs. Another curious fact is, that every Northern President had associated with him as Vice-President a man from the Old South. Thus, the first Adams had Jefferson, the second Adams had Calhoun, Van Buren had R. M. Johnson, Pierce had W. R. King, and Buchanan had Breckenridge. On the other hand, Jackson served one term as President with a Southern man, Calhoun, as Vice-President Harrison and his associate were both born in Virginia; Lincoln and Johnson were boJohnson were both born in the South. This period of eighty years has been called by the North: The Era of the Domination of the Slave-power. Without raising an objection to the discourteous phraseology, I would simply say that it is an admission that the South had marvelous success in its desire for political supremacy—one of the two objects of its ambition.

ith and Rucker. All the rebel prisoners are corraled in the stone quarry, from which the material for building the capitol was excavated, some few hundred yards from the capitol, which is called Andersonville. The penitentiary and all the public buildings are full. Half the prisoners are barefooted, and all are sleeping on beds of rocks. Governor Andrew Johnson was present on the field in the vicinity of the last bloody charge, which he watched with intense interest. General R. M. Johnson, instead of being killed, as reported, had turned the rebel flank and crossed the Harpeth river, eleven miles hence. In the first charge made by the colored troops on the rebel ranks, the Thirteenth regiment lost two hundred and fifty-six men, and the Twelfth, one hundred and nineteen men. About one hundred deserters came into our lines yesterday. The army to-day is undoubtedly attacking the rear of the rebels, as heavy firing has been heard in the direction of their retrea
