Arrest of the Brownlows --A telegraphic dispatch, published on the Gazette a few days since, stated that W. G. Brownlow and his son had been arrested at Knoxville by order of Gen. Zollicoffer. On the same day one of our citizens telegraphed to Knoxville, making inquiry: "For what was Brownlow and son arrested" We saw the answer as sent by telegraphic and it was "For circulating Helper's Book." This is the extend of our knowledge in regard to the matter.--Nashville Gazette.
as a prominent leader among them, and who has been regarded by Southern men as one of the most violent and ultra of the opponents of Southern Rights in the State. During the day John Brownlow and W. A. G. Reed, who were in the custody of the military, were surrendered to the Marshal, when the former, the District Attorney having no charge of a criminal nature against him, was fully discharged; the latter was, as we understand, informally charged with some criminal conduct in circulating Helper's infamous book; but upon his voluntarily making a statement in regard to his conduct and offering to take the oath of allegiance to the Confederate States, he was discharged from custody upon his own recognizance for his good behavior, after taking the following oath: "I, W. A. G. Reed, solemnly and sincerely swear that I will truly and faithfully demean myself as a good and true citizen of the State of Tennessee and of the Confederate States of America, and that I will be subject to
tion concerning the true state of Southern affairs. The South was a tabooed subject, except as a butt for abuse. Her slave-drivers, and slave institutions, were standing themes of execration; we were the bete noir, the pet abomination of the popular mind, a subject of conventional obloquy and execration. They knew us only through Uncle Tom's Cabin, through reviews of Sumner's speeches in the Edinburgh Quarterly, and through extracts and choice quotations from such infamous publications as Helper's Crisis. But for this deep-rooted prejudice, which had been planted long and firmly in the European mind, the cause of the South would have been more popular in Europe than any that has elicited the popular sympathies for half a century. As the case stands, bitterly as they hate, and profoundly as they loathe the Yankees, yet their long-standing prejudices against the South compel them to look upon the contest going on here as a struggle between bear and dog, between loathsome Yankees
an unimportant one--is not the last that will be achieved by the heroic band who have so long and gallantly defended that post, barring the door of East Tennessee and Southwestern Virginia against the hosts of Lincoln Invaders. Look out for Helper. The Edgefield Advertiser says: A correspondent addressing us from Williamston, N. C., says that the notorious Helper, of the Impending Crisis, is ascertained to have passed through that place recently from the direction of Roanoke Isla Island. A wounded soldier assures our informant that he saw Helper exchange gold for Confederate notes to the extent of two hundred dollars while on the island, doubtless for the purpose of facilitating his transit through the Confederacy. The people would do well to keep a look out for this man. We are beset with spies and traitors, and the watchfulness of individuals and of corporations should never sleep. No stranger should be allowed to pass upon our highways and byways unchallenged.
