Nashville, April 3. Last Wed
nesday an ex-Federal soldier named
Graham, well known in Nashville, war,
driven out of Mouct Pleasant County,
Tenn. by a Kuk-KIux mob. He had
gone to the place with a view of secur
ing employment as a teach?r. While
at the Post Office he was surrounded
by a mob of 15 or 20 rebels, who de
manded to know where he was from
and what wis bis business. He polite
ly and frankly answered the question,
when he was told that no d d Yan
kee who bad fought against the South
during the war should lire in Mount
Pleasant, and he must, on pain of death,
leave the place within five minutes.
He was followed three miles from the
town, and cursed, tantalized and re
peatedly threatened with infant death.
The mob was headed by Nixon, the
town constable, who claimed to have CO
men under his command who would
swear that no Radical Yankees should
settle within' bis lines. Mr. Graham
returned to this city yesterday.

there will; but the better opinirn is that

these men. They lay shoulder lo
