We call attention to the letter of Gen.
Clinginau below. From it will he eeeu
that the bills through which (Jeoige W.
Swepson obtained the money from the
State was drawn up by .Judge Merrimon
and Gen. Clinginau, but were
by Gov. Caldwell and Hon. Sam
Phillips, and gotten through mainly by
the influence of Gov. Caldwell, then L.
Governor and President of the Senate.
What will the Radicals say to this expo
sure ? Their candidate for Governor aud
atfi candidate for Attorney General re
sponsible for the legislation which ena
bled Swepson to ruin the State's credit !
So confidential were Swenson's relations
with the Governor, that he wrote to him
rather than to any of hi other counsel.
Abbeville, May 17, 1S72.
To tht Editor of the Citizen :
SlR : As I, iu common with other del
egates from Buncombe county, voted in
the Greensboro Convention to make the
lion. A. S. Merrimon the candidate tor
Governor, I think it but fair to defend
him, from attacks unjustly made against
him, Iu connection with myrelf, for acting
as the counsel of George W. Swepson.
As to the false charge iu the Eiu of yeB-
terday, the Kadical organ published at
ltau-iiili, that 1 bad sworn that 1 bad re-
ceived fifteen thousand dollars from
Swepson, it is hardly necessary forme
to contradict it, because that very paper
itself last winter referred to it as false,
aud assailed tho Sentinel nfiice for giviug
currency to if, through a typographical
-! - m
error. 1 ne circurnstaucc is wormy oi
notice; ouly as showing the little regard
for truth cutertaiued by that paper.
As. however, Judge .Merrimon is a can
didate for the highest office in the State,
he merits defence at the hands of his po
When the Legislature met in Novem

standing in the State as a business man
and a captalist was very 1. inland Judge
Merrimon and 1, as well as other eminent
lawyers at Raleigh, did business for him
exactly as we should have done it for
any other respectable gentleman iu the
State. What he wished us to do was
important to our section, and in itself
praiseworthy. Judire Merrimon aud I
had been residents cf the western part of
low-citizens, anxious, to obtain railroad
facilities, and the bills we prepared were
Dioner in themselves to carry out meas
urea f public importance. I am coufi-
dent that Judge Merrimon had no more
eround than mveclf to enspect that the
money to be appropriated was to be mia
applied. 1 never did anything as conn

Tbe Act of the Legislature ratified 29th
day of Jannary. A: D.. 1869. wa r.
f,ared t by Jr J- Caldwell, then Lieni.
Ooyeruor and President of the Stua:c.
and carried through the Legislature main
ly by bis influence. This Act contain
alinotst all the important legiltion of the
eessiou for the Western N. C. Road, nnd
makes, the: large appropriation of seven
millions of dollars for the construction of
both divisions of the road. Ihu circum
stances attending its passage were these:
J udge Merriuioa and I bad prepared a
bill which met with Gov. Caldwell' op.
position Hia objection to it wag that it
allowed the private stockholders to elect
all the directors of both divisions of the
road, because it provided that in the
election the State proxy ahould vote only
one-third of her stock, so ns to allow the
private stockholders the control. Gov.
Caldwell objected to this, and said bis
party was entitled to have the control of
the corporations. After tht struggle iu
the legislature had continued some weeks,
MrSwepson told Judge Merrimon and
myself that be could not get the bill
through against Caldwell's inilueoce, be
and bad agreed to make a compromise
with him, and that Caldwell bad himself
prepared a bill wb'ch he was willing to ac
cept. iBotb Mi rrimoii and 1 objected to
the compromise, though afterwards, on
finding that this bill niL.rdcd the only
chance for any appropriation to the road,
1 eventually withdrew my opposition, aud
thf hill in tli i t f. inn in-iii,
Caldwell's iuauence, became h law. Du
ring the contest I hud a conversation with
Gov. Caldwell uirself, and he stated that
he was quite willing thtt the Western
Division thuuld be arranged as Mr. Strep
I " 1 . . 1 i m
eon ULEiren it io ue, out tnat bo was not
willing that the K-tstcrn Divijion should
be in like condition because ol his oppo
sition to Col. Tate, its president. Iience
it will be seen that the 10ih section pro
iuvb iii.ii in me Jasirrn division tne
State shall vote pro rata on all her stock,
while section 11 provides that she shall
vote only one-third her etock iu the Wes
tern Division. The tflect of these pro
visions enabled Gov. llolden, through
the proxy appointed Ly him, to choose
all the diiectors on the Eastern Division,
and thus displace Col. S. McD. Tate,
while a the proxy would vote only one
third of tho stock in the Western Division
Mr. Swt pson and his fiicuds would elect
all the dii .etors in that Division, and thus
have control of the operations of the road.
On examining this entire Act, it will he
found that il ratifies" all the previous
legislation for . and transactions of the
IS x M m . .1
W estcrn Division of Mr. bwepson s road.
X OUIS"1' Y1 in,S co,,M,"-on. un',er w
etate that after my return from tho North,
in March of that year I met Gov. Cald
well on the street, and he itivited me to
his room to see a letter he had just receiv
ed from Mr. Swepson, then in Florida,
requesting some additional Legislation.
On hia explaining to me what Mr. Swep
son wished to have done, I, in accord
ance with Gov. Caldwell's wi-hes, weut
to the Hon. S. F. Phillips' office and told
him that Mr. Swepson drsired him to
prepare a bill to carry out hi view, and
Mr. Phillips, in compliance with my sug
grsiions, li .uned a hill which became a
law, having been ratified the 1st day of
April, A. i), 1SG9, to be f uud on page
218, of the Vol. of Laws for 1SGS aud
I refer to these transactions with uo
wish to prejudice either Gov. Caldwell or
Mr. Phillips, but merely that Justice may
be done to everybody. Having in all
public transactions myself in variably don
exactly what I thought right, 1 wish my
actions known to every oue, and presume
that these gentlemen have elujil.tr feelings
and arc quite as willing as I am that the
part they have taken in public business
I should be uodei stood.
In fact, as at that time none of us, 1
suppose, had any reason to believe that
the appropriations wiH- be misapplied,
there is no just ground for assailing us.
In any view that may be tckeu of the
matter. Judire Merritnou's poeitiou is
quite as defensible as that of his oppo
nent, and I think it is time that Gov.
Caldwell' organ should understand this.
Very Respectfully, Sec,

he served with Utinguished zeal and
ability, until the surrender at Appomat

erring under thejiMajor'a command da
ring the entire period of the war, and it
affords him pleasure to add that a braver
soldier ia the hour of storm aud battle
never drew sword in behalf of any cause

seemed to be endowed with tbe gift of
biquity, especially when tbe balls were
ainging their furneral dirges in discordaut

Robbins struck hii spots into bis horns'
ribs aud lifted hiar through space by the
mere lorte and impetuosity ot bis own
daring spirit ; aud that no muic so fully
developed the M4in,and the ldier in the
MHjor, as that which sprung, canopied iu
clouds of smoke, from the brazen throats
of the laukee cannon. On the Gib of

standing he was iu'all ihe battles fought
by the Army of Northern Virginia, and
and was ulwajrs, by choice, iu the very
forefront of dangrr. ihia was the ouly
scratch he received during the eutiic four
yeai. At the battle of Darbytown, ou
13th day of October, 1 SO 1 , a charge was
about to be inaugurated, but when the
Mjor attempted to draw his "battle
blade" lie found it o firmly elued to its
ecaLbard with rust tlhat it defied his mo.l
spasmodic aud pe-rsifteut endcaois. Not
to bt outdone, howei er, he matched from
hi belt a trusty frying pan, and brau-

follow him to victory". The men respond
