Andy Johnson saluted in Lynchburg.
his narrow escape.

Lynchburg,Va., April 21
--Andy Johnson, late U. S. Senator from Tennessee, passed through here to-day on his way from Washington to Tennessee. A large crowd assembled and groaned him and offered every indignity he deserved, including pulling his nose. Every effort was made to take him off the cars.

The demonstrations were first suggested by Tennesseeans. Great difficulty was experienced in restraining the populace. Johnson was protected by the Conductor and others, who begged that he might be permitted to proceed home and let his own people deal with him.

He denied sending a message asserting that Tennessee should furnish her quota of men.
