vilhi wife of the postmaster at that place.
We made inquiry, were inlortued on good
authority that the statements were bune
les, and refrained from any alluvion
thereto in our columns. Bat the gossips
would not desist; all mauner of reports
concerning the lady and gentleman men
tioned were pendetently kept in circula
tion and we finally telegraphed to n pro
minent citizen of Greenville, who an
swered several days since, as tallows :
There is uot an atom of truth in the
alleged scandal. Lying tongues have
driven a virtuon, Christian ladr to
insane suicide. This is a candid state
ment of the facts."
Convinced of the foul injustice that
had been done, we still foreloie, out of
respect for the parties involwd, to gire it
undue publicity, but the following dis
patch from Brooklyn, New York, to the
indianapolis "Journal" shows, that the
slanderers were determined not to be
defeated of their purpose:
"A few days since it was announced
that Mrs. Emily Harold, wife pf the post
niaster at Greenville, East Tennesse, had
committed suicide by shooting herself
through the head with a revolver. A let
ter just received by a resident of Green
ville, now in Brooklyn attending the
!Mcthodit General Conference, conveys
the intelligence that Mrs. Harold had been
Fcduced by ex-President Johnson, and
that discovery and exposure led her to
the commission of the rash act. Great
indignation s expressed among the
citizens of Greenville against the ex
President, and many of the best citizens
refuse to speak to hirn on the street."
We have had every opportunity to
learn oil the circumstances so grossly
misstated in the dispatch above qnoted,
and have no hesitation in saying that, for
heartless cruelty on the part ot the insti
gators and perpetrators, this affair stands
unparalleled in the annals of social mur
der. It was frequently referred to by
prominent East Tennessee Republicans
dining the State Convention of their par
ty recently held here, and they were
unanimous in declaring tli.it the reports
' which remind Mrs. ll.utold insane and
