From Tennessee. Bristol, Tenn, May 7. --Johnson and Nelson, on approaching Blountville, were met by a deputation of citizens, who presented them the note of the Committee of Forty-Two.--They responded that if a majority of the meeting did not wish to hear them, they would not inflict a speech upon them. Whereupon, the vote was again taken upon the question of permitting them to speak. The meeting was composed of fifteen hundred persons. Five persons voted to hear them, three of them came up on the train with Johnson and Nelson, and were citizens of Carter county. Finding such an overwhelming majority against them, they concluded not to speak. Sullivan county is now a unit for the South.
