SALE OF THE STATE’S
The sale of the State’s Cars and the
levying upon the extensive and valuable
Depot at Chattanooga, (says the Chroni
cle & Sentinel) which cost the State
thousand upon thousaud of dollars, are
exciting the indignation of the people
on all hands. This is as it should be.
We speak of course of those who are not
ti:2 servile instruments of party—whose
forily patriotism consists in voting far the
nominees of their party, without refer
ence to their corrupt administration of
gross neglect of the affairs of the State.
The Atlanta Republican, like every
good citizen, feels indignant and speaks
out in the following strain :
Sheriff Sale of the State Road
Cars—The Chattanooga Depot
levied upon—We are informed that on
Friday the 4th instant, fifteen of the
State Road Cars were sold, at Chatta
nooga, under the Sheriff’s hammer, and
brought the following prices:
4 Box Car, $185,00
14 do do each, 130,00
We are further informed that the State
Road Depot at that place, is also adver
tised to be sold by the Sheriff on the
first Tuesday in October. We do not
know who was the real purchaser, or
what Georgia has gained by a transaction
so disgraceful to the State, but to cause
shame to mantle the cheek of every
Georgian. The idea of having the pro
perty of the State of Georgia and ma
chinery of her great work sold under
the Sheriff’s hammer, in the State of
Tennessee, is infamy enough for one
• day. It would have been far better for
»that one hundred thousand dollars kept
from honest creditors and piled up in
the State Treasury to brag about and
make capital for Ilerschei V. Johnson,
i to have been used to pay the Cowart,
- Johnson, Tennessee claim*, much bet
ter than the degradation of having the
machinery of the State Road sold to
. pay those debts. Verily the wild hunt
after office, of Johnson and his precious
crew has brought and is bringing the
' State of Georgia to bankruptcy of char
acter and credit before the time.
our return home, the conversation
which I reported to you sometime ago
occurred. Kilgore commenced it by
calling me a “d—d Know Nothing.*’
He did say that “ old Louis. Napoleon
Bonaparte came to this country with
forty thousand men, and fought the bat
tles of the Revolution,'* and that the
Siate of Louisiana was named after him
in consequence of it
So far from it being true that he
meant Lafayette, as he claims in his ly
ing statement in the Banner, I most dis
tinctly remember that I reminded him
three several times that it was Lafayette !
He finally said it was a lie—whereupon
I called him a d—d liar and a d—d
fool into the bargain. He then jumped
out of the rockaway—unhitched his
horse, and left me and my little boy to
get home the best way we could. My
younger brother coming up at this time
on horseback, unsaddled his horse and
hitched him to my carriage, when this
unmitigated liar had the unblushing ef
frontery to send back to borrow his sad
As to bis stating that Louisiana was
named in honor of Louis XV., it is an
unmitigated falsehood, nor did he know
it was the fact until informed by his lit
tle amanuensis, whom I congratulate
upon his elevation to the important pos*
of scribe to Jim Kilgore.

Mr. Editor My attention has been
called to a statement over the signature
of “ James Kilgore,” published in the
Southern Banner of the 30th of August.
It purports to be a correction of the
statement with which I furnished you
sometime since, every word of which,
and much more than it contained; I am
prepared to prove by unimpeachable
testimony, and force the lie down the
throat of this new correspondent of the

DON LOPEZ HOWELL,
Beilini of the Sixth District.
gressional District, it is proper that I
should declare the principle* which shall
govern nie, if the will of the People
should advance me to that position.
This I shall do in a few words. Before
proceed, however, to discharge this
duty, l will say. that in taking this step,
I have violated no known rule of party
organization; nor hare I offended
against the usages of the Democratic
party—the party with which I have al
ways acted. The distinguished gentle
man whose opponent I have become, is
understood to be in the field without the
usual party nomination; and I of
course, do not deny his right thus to
place hitnself before the people.
I have now to say, that elected or not
the Constitution of the United States
shall be my platform ; and its principles
as illustrated in the adminintrations of
republican Presidents, shall be main
tained and supported to the extent of
1 hold that the Constitution was the
work of the people of the several States
and expresses their will; and that their
representative, whatever may be his no
tions of expediency and propriety, has
no right to depart from it. The Con
stitution and the will of his constituents
not violative of the Conslitutio i, are his
laws. I will say further, that I hare no
fault to find with the Constitution
believe it to be the greatest political
work of the human mind; and if re
spected and adhered to, the several
States will be peaceful; religious and
civil rights will never be disturbed; and
the whole people moving on harmo
niously together, will be prosperous and
happy, and the UNION perpetual
For who can doubt but that the discords
which have occasionally disturbed the
equanimity of the people, and which
now convulse the country from one ex
tremity to the other, have arisen from
threatened or attempted infractions of
the Constitution. As an instance, see
the movements of the abolitionists.
I believe that the representative has
no power to compromise away the rights
or a particle thereof, of his most humble
constituent; aud that he is intrusted
with power by the people to maintain
and defend, but on no consideration, to
surrender their rights.
I believe that Congress has no power
to adopt a system of Internal Improve
ments ; for that policy raises tribute in
one section of the country, to be ex
pended in another; and independent of
tbe absence of any constitutional author
ity for that purpose, it is unjust to tax
the people over the entire Union to raise
money to be expended on the Mississip
pi and its great tributaries; nor should
money be raised in that section to be
expended in the North-eas*.
I believe that Congress has no right to
tax the people to an extent beyond what
and to place both on terms of equality-
in all the relations of society.
I believe that as our Government is
based on the principles of right, justice,
and liberty, no modification or change
therein, or its laws, should be proposed
or effec.ed but in a manner to admit of
the free action oi the public mind and
ibtelligence upon it
I believe that there can be no popu
lar liberty where the freedom of con
science is restricted.
I believe that the Constitution of the
United States should be strictly con
strued, and that such a construction is
the only safety of the people.
I believe that what is usually termed
a latitudinarian construction of the Con
stitution, is dangerous to the public
liberty, and enables men to substitute
their opinions for special constitutional
To conclude, I believe in the Repub
lican exposition of the ConstitutioB, as
to be found in the Virginia and Ken
tucky Resolutions, ’98 & ’99, as ex
pounded by Mr. Madison.

will prevent me from canvassing tbe

I believe that people inhabiting ten i
tory belonging to the United States,

United States, have no right or power
by territorial legislation, to prevent the
citizens of any State of this Union from
migrating to said territory, and carrying

I believe that when the people of a
territory form a State Government for
admission into this Union, they must
form a Republican Government; and
that their Constitution must contain no
provishn which comes in conflict with
the Federal Constitution ; and that they
may establish or prohibit slavery by
their Constitution; and that Congress
has no power to interpose to prevent
the exercise of this unquestionable right.
I believe that opposition to the princi

lation to the subject of slavery, is unmis
takable evidence of hostility to the peo
ple of the South; and that all persons
who partake in such opposition, are un
fit to be recognized as component parts
of any party or organization not hostile
to the South; aud that the Southern
people should have no party connection
with any matt who does not concur fully
in this sentiment.
I believe that a strict adherence to

is essential to the safety of the South,
and that every mad of the South, slave
