Johnson. On Thursday, in accordance with a previous ap pointment, Gov. Johnson addressed the citixonsof Fulton countj at the City Hall in thisjplace. The speech, of an hour's length in the morning, was continued at night in the Athcnteuin. It is im possible for us, within the ordinary limits of a newspaper article, to do any thing like justice to tho very able address of our candidate on this oc casion. It was unquestionably tho speech of the canvass, so thought we, so thought everybody who heard it. It was not mere eloquence in which consisted the principle attraction of Gov. Johnson’s speech. This he might well disdain; but the solid continuous chain of argument, the stern ition. no cts. one tuontn, $5 00 incontrovertible facts, shaped and linked by the aid of reason, it was this which marked .the character of the addross of Thursday evening.— Stooping for a moment to notice with withering scorn the base attacks, and foul calumnies of the : made for yearly advor- Know-Nothing press, the speaker explained how ipy.ng a quarter, half or whole noivliit was that he had loft Millcdgcville to vindicate his character against the malignant .■landers of his adversaries. Charge after charge had they brought against him, which had been refuted as fast as made, yet thoy had failed to publish any one of those refutations, but continued to make other and more virulent attacks. Under such condition of affairs, justice demands that he should be heard in bis own defence, and right nobly he vindicated himself. Tho reduction of freights from the Etowah depot, he said, was his own act —it was right—and if tho Know-Nothing press had'dared publish Mark A. Coopers letter the peo ple would all have known it was right. The speaker then adverted to tho sale of the State Road cars, exculpated himsolf and tho Superin tendent from all blnmo in the transaction, and satisfied his hearers that the Stato had lost noth ing by it. The depot at Chattanooga, he begged to assure tho vigilant guardians of tho public weal, would not be sold. Upon tho suhjoct of the Stato Road Attorney, We beliove no one who hoard Gov. Johnson will doubt tho propriety or tho legality of the appoint ment. Tho precedent had been established by Gov. Cobb. Not one word was said in opposition thereto by tho same press who are now so merci lessly villifying him. The Legislature, when the affairs of tho State Road had come under their in spection, had tacitly approved the appointment. Passing by these things, the speaker next con sidered of tho two parties. Know-Nothingism, which claimed to be Americanism, was in antago nism to the cardinal principles of Americanism, a free press, free speech, religious toleration, and representation without taxation. The slavery as pect of the parties next claimed his attention, llaving first ably reviewed the Compromise meas ures of 1850, tho Kansas-Ncbraska act, and tho present position of tho people of Georgia, ho proved that tho Philadelphia platform had failed to meet the demands of the South, and that its principles wero antagonistic to tho Geor gia platform. In forcible and energetic language tho speaker depicted the history and progress of Know-Nothingism. It had sprung from Abolition motives, and at every step it had trampled upon tho interests of tho South. Its hostility to for eigner* was hostility to our institutions. The firmest friends that the South had, wero these same foreign born citizens, whorno the Northern Know-Nothings were attempting to disfranchise. Tho South would gain nothing by the disfran chisement of the foreigners North—representation was apportioned by tho population; the North would bo entitled to as many representatives then as now; tho only difference would bo that native born Abolitionists would have tho exclusive selec tion of them. Tho speaker treated the religious feature of tho Philadelphia platform with well de served ridiculo. Wc aro sure that there was not a Know-Nothing present who was not ashamed of that portion of his creed. We have not time to follow this speoch further; we will leave it by addiDg that it did honor to Gov. Johnson, and service for his cause.

Relief for tile CJironlcle A Sentinel. Our cotemporary, with that t’other guardian of our Stato Road interests, the Chattannooga Gil lette, shall bo cased of their distress at tho sale of tho Stato Road cars. First, wo feel very cortain from tho proofs that we have in our possession, that these levies were instigated for the express purpose of making K. N. capital just like the at tempt to sot fire to one of our most costly eugines the other night nt Dalton, with a valuable train attached to hor. These people stop at nothing. It is cortain that the parties making these levies on tho cars and tho Dopot buildings at Chattanoo ga, knew that thoir money was ready upon appli cation for them at the Ocoee Bank, and every body knows that lcvios upon the property belong ing to the Stato of Georgia, amounting to at least forty thousand dollars, were not called for to sat isfy a paltry sum of two or three thousands. But this is tho point. An attempt is being made by tho Chronicle, and its desperate coadjutors to make tho impression that the payment of the debts justly duo from the road wore withheld—that State Road cars were loved on, sold for one-fourth their value, and after salo, taken away by the pur chasers of the property, and to tho great detriment of the State’s interests. Besides, the Chronicle is at least responsible for the impression, if such an one obtains, that note, tho State Depot nt the Northern terminus of the Road, is levied on, and will he sold by tho Sheriff next October. Wc ex plicitly state for the information of the public in general, and for tho particular “aid and comfort’ of the Chronicle & Sentinel, that tho State of Georgia did not loose “ono-fourth" of one cant on tho sale of “these carsthat they never were for tho speace of “one fourth” ot one moment of time out of our possession, and that they wore nover removed from our custody, having been bought iu for us by a special agent, duly empow ered so to do. Then as to the Depot building. Thero is no lovy on the Depot—it will not be sold for debt in October next, or any October there after, unless by some devilish mischance, Garnett Andrews, or some noddle head like him, should get control of the Road. Again for the perfect repose of tho Chronicle, wo state further, that there is not an outstanding debt now duo the State Road, that cannot and will not be taken up on presenta tion. Wc hove been called on by peremptory chal lenge from the Chronicle to give it “light" about the things here spoken of. We have lurnished, wo will engage more than was asked for or needed either, if you come to that. Now don’t go, we beg tho Chronicle, and stick it under a Know-Nothing bushel. Respect the truth, we most urgently ask of our coteinporary, even though it should aggra vate Garnett Andrew’s bronchitis. A K N. Meeting. TheKnow-N otliings, we understand, re port 5,000 persons in attendance at the mass meeting in Dalton on the 20th inst. A friend who was present and who counted the crowd while at the dinner-table assures us that there were 1800 of both sexes, 1000 of whom were citizens of the place, of which latter one-half wore Democcats. There was not one ticket sold at this depot, although the rates were reduced One-half. There is but one question of this canvass undeter mined, and that is, whether the Know- Nothings will be beaten worse in Northern or in Southern Georgia. CJincber. We beg the special attention of our rea ders to Maj. J. F. Cooper’s letter exposing tho base trick of she opponents of the Dem ocratic party fot making capital against Goy. Johnson. J[en who ar# capable of lending themselvei to such villiany are not above any crime hat is within the compass pf corrupt and repobate natures. VFlfll flic What Gov* Johnson has don State Rond* Under bis administration the earnings of the Western & Atlantic R. R. have increas ed, for ten months business, from $488,718 01 To 527,207 02 Under Johnson, the gross earnings of the Road for 1855 will reach $700,000 In July last, besides a world of other freights, we passed through more than 10,- 000 bushels of wheat for every working day in that month. And in August 326,255 bushels! But to do this Johnson’s boys were obliged to run much of the time seventeen trains a day T , and depot hands worked often till midnight. Under Johnson the Road has paid for construction incurred previous to 1854. the sum of $249,208 06 Since then including 1,600 tons of new heavy rail $200,411 61 UndeFJohnson, the State Road has been worked with such admirable systemjund per- severence, with a rolling stock more dispro- portioned to her business than that of any other road in Georgia, we have nevertheless blocked up all the Roads in the State fed by ours. Under Johnson we have had paid into the State Treasury by the Road $100,000 In one month more we will get another installment of $50,000 Under Johnson we have replaced the old rotten bridge at Etowah with a superb structure and embankment 1900 feet long, and made tlie Road from Dalton to Atlanta the pride and admiration of all in Georgia —of course excepting Know-Nothings. And we may go further and say, that un der Johnson, before the close of 1857, the earnings of the State Road will reach the enormous sum of $1,000,000 What tlie State Road has NOT done un der Gov- Johnson It has not lost one dollar from a defaulter, as the rule is that all hands once a week must come up to the “cap’n’s office and settle.” It has not caused the loss of a single life in two years from a collision or “ run off.” It has hardly lost it single mail in the same lengLli of time. It has not oppressed or proscribed, as has been falsely stated, but has retained a large proportion of active, working and bitter po litical opposition in service on the Road. It has never delayed payment to the poor, as Garnett Andrews falsely states, but “the Friday after the lath of each month” tlie pay roll is cleared off and every man who will have his pay gets it. And lastly, there has not been a judgment rendered against the State Road to the amount of one dollar for any cause of action arising under Governor Johnson’s adminis tration. Letter from Gov. Johnson on the Remo val Question. After all the misrepresentations thai have been circulated in this vicinity and in South ern Georgia in legard to Gov. Johnson’s position on the Removal Question, in order to prejndice his cause among the friends and the opponents of Removal, we take pleasure in being able to lay before our rea ders the following letter from his Excellen cy, by which these contemptible rumors are effectually nailed to the counter as Know-Nothing “Roorbacks.” It will be noticed with pleasure by those having the interests of Atlanta at heart, that Governor Johnson takes the correct position on the subject—that if the Legislature, in accor dance with the will of the people expressed at the ballot-box, passes a bill for the re moval of the Capitol to Atlanta, he will sanction the bill. Executive Chamber, I Milledgcville, Sept. 3, 1855. j Bear Sir: You say, that my opponents arc busily circulating reports about Atlan ta and the surrounding country, to the effect, that if elected Governor, I will, in case the next Legislature pass a bill locat ing the seat of Government at Atlanta, veto the bill. There is no foundation for such rumor. I have carefully abstained from any interference with the question. The last Legislature passed an act referring it to the people at the approaching election. I am perfectly contented to abide their will, as may be indicated by the majority of the voters of Georgia. If in observance of their will, so expressed at the ballot-box, the next Legislature should pass a law locating the seat of Government at Atlanta or at any other point, I shall feel it my duty, if elec ted, to sautiou such a bill. Respectfully, your obt. servant, HERSCI1EL V. JOHNSON. Col. John Collier, Atlanta, Ga. The Late Gex. Arista, of Mexico.—Gen. Arista, ex-President of Mexico, who la.ely died in Europe, was aged 62. He was one of the ablest and most upright public men of Mexico. He was banished to the United States in 1834, through a failure of a rising headed by himself. He returned and held office under Bustamente, and defended Year Cruz against the French in 183S, where he became a prisoner of war. He commanded at Mat amoves during the late war of Mexi co with the United States. When Santa Anna came in power, Arista went to Europe, where ho was received with distinction, and honored up to the time of his sudden death. Tiie Democratic People are National. —The great result in Maine is expressive of the soundness and the patriotism of the masses of the Democratic party in the free States. Leaders may sometimes hesitate in the midst of the violence and noise of fa- naticism, because the people seem to acqui esce by their silence. But when the peril is made manifest—when the tlag of disunion is unfurled—the first movement of the Dem- cratie masses is to the platform of the con stitution. It will thus happen that on the very fields which have been won by Know- Nothingism, aided by Abolitionism, the reign of fanaticism will be as brief as its overthrow will be terrible. [For tie Atlanta Daily Intelligencer.] The Abolition question—A New Rival to Rome. Messrs. Editors: We see it published in some of our city papers with manifest ap probation that tlie Council of the American party in Fulton county have passed an or der, decree, resolution or rule, to’ the effe-'t that members of the order in said Council shall be allowed to vote for Overby for Gov ernor, in opposition to the nominee of tho State Convention, without subjecting themselves to censure, or incurring the odi um of treason or disloyalty to their secret obligations to the party to carry out in all cases the nominations thereof, or in any wise impairing their standing as good Aiu- erierns. Wo do not pretend to quote the exact words, as wc have not the paper be fore us, nor have we ever seen the original, but we understand the object to be to ab solve determined Prohibitionists from the binding force and effect of their oath to sup port the nominations of the party, without withdrawing from their connection with the order. Now, Messrs. Editors, there is something about this question of absolution. that looks strange to one unaccustomed t-f such things. It may all be pleasant and easy to the initiated, but to one who has never seen the elephant, there seems to be a thick mist hanging over the whole mat ter. The immense numbers claimed to have been initiated by their street-criers, would long since have included the entire voting population of the county, and have al lowed several weeks past for working over the refused stock a second time. Hence it does seem that they might have allowed the few Overby men among them to have re tired in quiet, end pursued an independent course, without any troubles ol' conscience about those oaths, ‘ 1 pretermiitiny’’ any ef fort to retain them in the order, under cir cumstances, which to an outsider, looks like an effort to oust the jurisdiction of the Romish Church in the matter of absolving their members from the guilt and sir. of do ing what they are understood to have sworn not to do. Now, Messrs. Editors, don’t this out-Herod Herod himself? Who would have thought it ? Does it not look queer in deed for indulgences to be ^granted by the great informers themselves, the expurgators of the Romish heresy ? In all seriousness, what is the difference between tho granting indulgences by the Pope in the Dark Ages, or in the yet dark portions of the earth, and the granting of indulgences by the Ameri can party iu the State of Georgia in the Nineteenth Century ? 1 do not desire any controversy with our K. N. neighbors, but have made these suggestions for the benefit of.those who in tend to vote for Overby, and to open the eyes of others who may be in danger of be ing retained iu the order against their con victions of duty, when to our mind it is clear they ought at once to withdraw from the Council, and place themselves in a position free from doubt as to the obligations of du ty to their country, and their oath-bound secret obligations to the party. AN OUTSIDER. [From the Georgia Telegraph, lflth inst.] Gov. Johnson Vindicated—-The State Road, We call particular attention to the follow- ] ing correspondence. It is a full and per- ! feet vindication of Governor Johnson, against the petty calumnies, which have come swarming into existence at the close of the campaign. Read and circulate! Read and circulate! Let the people see the truth, and the slanderers be confounded. Macon, Sept. 18th, 1855. Dear Sir: As various reports are circula ted through the newspapers and elsewhere, in regard to the sale of- Iron of the Western & Atlantic Road, and also as to the levy and sale of the cars of the Road recently at Chattanooga, and as these reports reflect in juriously not only upon Governor Johnson, but also upon yourself as the Superintend ent of the Road. Will you do me the favor to state the facts of each case that the truth may be known and published in regard to both. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, W. K. DeGraffenreid. Bax a«a Slanderous Charge. It has been left for the Rome Courier to perpetrate the foulest of all slanders that have yet been heaped upon the head of Gov- Johnson. Let any man read the following editorial fron the Rome Courier of the 11th inst, and say if the party is not desperate •indeed, that resorts to such infamous slan ders. _ WHAT A GOVERNOR. Jno T. Boyd, under sentence of death as principal in the second degree for the murder of A. M. Robinson, in Columbus, Ga., has been respited by H. Y. Johnson.— This man Boyd, after his trial, broke jail in Columbus and when he was retaken in Florida did liis best to kill the officer and his posse who went out to arrest him. He fired 6 or 8 shots and wounded one or two ofthem. Now this man whohas beenguilty of two murders, (one in Macon a few years since,) and who has deliberately attempted five or six more, is respited by Governor Johnson—under what pretence it. is, that this act of clemency is done by his. Excel lency, we are not informed, but it is to b» presumed that the Governor is buying Boyd’s TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25. Hon. David Irwin. The Know-Nothing friend* of this gontleman are making great efforts to extricate him from tho difficulties into which he has plunged himsolf by attempting to practice duplicity in reference to his political position. If ho had taken the open, candid and independent course pursued by Col. Brown, his opponent, and avowed his senti ments without disguise or double dealing, he would not now stand in tho unenviable position which he occupies before the community. Tho proof is conclusive that he was nominated by a Know- Nothing convention, six mouths since, at IV] ariet ta. This has been kept a profound secret till the recent certificates of Dr. Pennington and Messrs. McMeekin, Harmon and Craton, have established the fact. We see in the last Georgian (which de votes nearly the whole of its columns this week to the defence of Judge Irwin’s caso) a certificate of Messrs. Chisolm, Edge, Elliott, Robinson, Waddle and Lanier, which apologizes for the Judge. They admit that tho convention met; that they were members, that it “ took into con sideration the propriety of nominating a candidate meeting out justice Macon, Sept. 18, 1855. j come so serupulou My Dear Sir : I have seen the allegations 1 to Mark A.

He seemed to attach no importance to it, and I supposed that their project for a Railroad had been abandoned—Governor Johnson knew nothing of my promise to the Thomas- ten Company.

The wheat crop in this section is large, the average yield being es timated by some at 30 bushels per acre, but this I tmpk too high a figure—20 to 25 being nearer the mark. In ‘the Southern and Eastern part of the State, on the prairi es, it will probably be from 25 to 30 bush els per acre. Wages for laborers to harvest the crops have been very high in that sec tion—from $2 to $2.50 per day having been paid, and they were hard4o get at that. The Fever at Norfolk and Ports mouth.—John Wise, the aeronaut, writing to the New York Tribune, suggests a means of dispelling tlie miasmatic atmosphere at Norfolk and Portsmouth. He says : “A few tons of gunpowder exploded in cannons of the largest calibres with their muzzles elevated as much as practicable, even to a perpendicular if possible, would produce atmospheric waves that would travel hundreds of miles. This should be aided by large fires, on open lots and commons, made of tar barrels or any other highly combustible material. This would put the atmosphere in motion, driving the infected off and receiving the pure from abroad.” He also recommends the fumigation of infected houses and chlorine gas, or chlo ride of lime. He also states that over $1,000 has been raised for the sufferers at Lan caster, Pa., from whence he writes. C-lov. Shannon. The following is an extract from a report of a speech delivered by Gov. Shannon, de fining his position with reference to the Kansas Legislature and the institution of slavery : As to the Legislature that recently ad journed at the Shawnee Mission, he regar ded it as a legal assembly, and thought that the objection to its power, grounded on ils removal from Pawnee was puerile, as every Legislature enjqyed the right of removing the seat of government at pleasure. The Executive and Judiciary of the Territory had acknowledged the Legislature as a Le gal body, and so would he. He regarded their laws as binding on every citizen of the Territory, and would use all his Executive power aud authority to carry them into ef fect. He said lie did not intend to address ibem on the various questions that divided the parties of the Territory: perhaps he did not understand them ; and lie had not ex pected to speak on this occasion.

Know-Nothings vs The Nebraska Bill- During a late speech in Texas, Senator Houston stated that the passage of the Ne- braska-Kansas -Act was one of the principal reasons why “ the Know-Nothing or Ameri can party had been formed, and the great heart, of America excited that said bill was concocted by a little caucus of seven or eight senators in Congress, and that Mr. j Pierce had fallen into their measures, and so the bill was brought forward and passed; that it was a very bad bill, and he alone, of all the southern senators, had voted against it. - (He did not seem to know that Mr. Bell had voted the same way.) lie told senators, he said, that it was a bad bill, and that the North would not like it; and referred to his speech on the subject in the Senate in proof ol what he asserted, and to the Know-No thing victories at the North in proof of its truth, and the fulfillment of all his prophe cies. Senator Houston also spoke in high com mendation of the Philadelphia Know-No thing Platform ; said it was sound, national and conservative, and that he stood firmly on it particularly, we suppose, because it styled the Nebraska-Kansas Bill “ an ob noxious act and violated pledge.” Senator Houston is one of the great pillars of Know-Nothingism. His speeches have been published abroad, his life written, and it is said that he is to be the candidate of the order in the next Presidential campaign.

But be this as it may, 1 only am to blame, the Governor knew nothing of the previous correspondence with the Thomaston Company, and I had forgotten it until I saw Mr. Wells, their Engineer, in company with Maj. Howard at Atlanta. Now. as to the sale of cars. Several judg ments were obtained against the Road in Tecnnessce, on account of claims institu ted iu 18-52, aud I made arrangements which I thought would prevent the issuance of executions. Nevertheless one of the credi tors did issue, and levy was made upon fif teen stock cars standing on the track out of use, at Chattanooga. They went to sale, and were bid in for our Road, by a gentle man who was requested to act for us. We paid the money in two or three days after wards—the cars never left our tracks—nev er went out of our possession one moment, and the Road lost nothing by the transac tion but the SherrifPs Commission on $1,- 600.

The sworn obliga tions hi tlie initiated is to support for office, only all candidates that shall be lawfully nominated by the parly. This obligation is by no means to be construed as extend ing to all the nominees of ilie party, wlieth- Ilence the Fulton county lodge might very easily persuade themselves that it would not do t>> loose members from the organization, inst because they intended to vote for Over by against Andrews, as none of the well-in- formed members undertake to establish that his nomination was either regular or lawful. Indeed it is generally considered by the candid among themsehes even, that his nomination was effected by a snap-judge ment, a mere pettifogging trick upon the simple-hearted members of the party. Hence no, to “ recommend Judge Irwin to the support <ff their friends.” But notice the consistency of the certificate and tho probability of the story.— They say that “Judge Irwin was never informed of the action of the meeting.'' Again they say he was not informed of its action, authoritatively or othcncise. Col.

Judge fr- win lias been Mr. AY addle’s guardian and is now j the guardian of some of liis brothers aud sisters, it wo aro correctly informed, and VIr. Waddle is the Judge’s political friend, and yet tile Judge never was informed, authoritatively or otherwise, of his nomination ! We of course do not reflect upon these gentlemen, but we must submit that these aro strong features in Know-Nothingism. Who did the convention intend to benefit by this recomcndation of Judge Irwin ? Certainly Judge Irwiu. Tho effect of this recomcndation has been that tho Know-Nothings have taken up the Judge as their candidate, and the Know-Nothing presses are supporting "him with all their power. The last Georyianhas a long editorial, two long com munications, and four certificates, in reference to thejudicial election, and all designed to help Judge Irwin, and part of them full of slander on Col. Brown: and yet the Judge is not the Know- Nothing candidate!
