--We give place with great pleasure to the following card from Gen. Tochman
To the Editors of the public Press disposed to give circulation to the subjoined communication:
Richmond, Va. Oct. 14, 1861.
--I have been daily asked — verbally and by letters, by friends and by strangers to me — for whom I will cast my vote for the Presidency and Vice Presidency?
As only the difficulty or misunderstanding which led me to withdraw from the public service after I had raised and organized two regiments of troops under the name of the Polish Brigade
has given place to these questions, I therefore declare publicly that, in casting my vote, no other considerations but the good of the Confederacy
and its exigency will be my guide; and I will therefore vote for Jefferson Davis
for the Presidency and Alexander M. Stephens
for the Vice Presidency
, because I earnestly believe that their removal, at this crisis of the country, would lead to the most disastrous consequences.
