's nose pulled, and he Nea being hung.--We once heard of a wag that seized hold of an elephant's snout on every occasion, and he always excused himself upon the pretext that he could not resist the temptation to pull a nose that he could get hold of with both hands.
It seems that Andy Johnson
is such a miserable traitor, that an editor at Lynchburg
could not resist the temptation
to pull his proboscis.
Our citizens heard yesterday, with every demonstration of delight, the indignity offered Gov. Johnson
on his way from Washington
His presence in Virginia
was regarded as exceedingly offensive to Virginians
He was insulted at almost every depot.
his nose was most handsomely pulled, while he was hooted and groaned at by the large crowd.
The traitor is meeting his reward.
We have heard since, from good authority, that at Liberty
, in Bedford county, Va.
was taken from the cars, and a rope placed around his neck preliminary to a proposed hanging.
Some old citizens of the county begged for him, saying that Tennessee
would do for him what they proposed to do, and he was let off.--Memphis Avalanche, April 25
