--Lieutenant-General U. S. Grant
, with several members of his staff, passed through this place on last Sunday morning, en route
for Washington city
He was returning from a tour through several of the Southern States
, Doctor Sevier
introduced him to a large crowd.
Among the crowd was one who had fought pretty hard on t'other side, who, while hobbling up to the General
, remarked: "I fought that man pretty hard, but I would like to see him." The General answered: "That does not keep you from being a good citizen; I had as soon see you as anybody." If those in authority in this State would recognize this fact, and act accordingly, we would soon have quite a different state of affairs.--Bristol (Tennessee) News.
