chase your wild pets, and yield to its power ? Old 
maiden, will you leave a moment your pet corner, 
and forget your caia T Old batchelor, will you turn 
from your dog nndgun, lay down your delicts 'Ha- 
vanna,' and bestow one caress upon Our Pet ? I need 
not ask these questions. Keep your pets— keep them 
all; they will not interfere with — the ncespipcr — 
yea, even far paper, i* Our Pet. Can you not sym- 
pathise with us in our love for it f Hast never felt 
more st esse from the coi.fiiousncss of a knowledge 
of the world, gained through its columns T never fol- 
lowed the thread of some pleasant story, and felt 
yourself rewarded in the moral it contained f never 
bowed thy heart to the spell of its poetsyt True, 
there is much in it that ia only foam upon poetry'a 
deep sea. but there are gems— beautiful, heart-touch- 
ing, that would shine in any setting. The first 
trembling effort of every author reaches us through 
the psper; their first fresh thoughts gushing out from 
a heart untouched by th*. world's corr oding finger 
unlearneJ in itsdark paths. O ! it is much sweeter 
to know tljat they who sweep our heart chords wuh 
wild clash, have music in their own. than that those 
heart-strokes are prompted by a cool head and exe- 
cuted by an untrembling hand. 

Is our household alone in its love for the paper ! 
Ga to yonder lone widow, whose little children, 
though they fill her heart, are too young to answer

through summer and winter, providing food for

Look for an answer, upon the scene I point you to. 
'Tis night. Old Eolus reign* supreme, and vainly

ticle is read from the paper. Thus night after night

They speak to my spirit of joy alont, 
While no blight on the rose-hued blossom lies, 
All is song and bloom neath the summer skies;

Where the night-bird sings in th« still-hushed hour;

Yst, e'en as I aing '.hia mournful lay,

Yet I'll come again, in the twilight gloom, 
When the flowers are weeping above my wmb. 
When the bird 'a in the bower, the star on the st 
I'll come :o thee then, like a shadowy dream; 
I'll breathe o'er thy lips in the wind's low sigh,

And when angels seem stirring the whispered air. 
And esch thought and wish, are turned into prayer 
Know then that my spirit is hovering nigh. 
Wooed by thy love trom its home in the sky.

For The Shelby News. 

fflan Worship. 

Scarcely any form of intellectual and J 
moral vice with which we are acquainted ' 
seems, in all ages and in all countries, to J 
have been the cause of more evil to socie- 
ty, than the vice of Man Worship. No pe- ' 
riod of the world's history is without a re- 
■SffJ of its consequences. No people have 
ever been, either so elevated and enlight- 
ened, on the one hand, or so debased and ' 
benighted on the other, as to have escaped j 
its influence. No moral reform has ever \ 
been so urgent ; no change, social, political, ! 
or religious, so important; no system of 
moral, mental, or even of physical truth, 
no clear and convincing, as not to have 
been thwarted, despised, or condemned by 
the blind devotees of this miserable idolatry. 

In the time of Aristotle, and long after- 
ward, it is said that the reverence paid to 
that philosopher was so great, that his mere 
assertion was sufficient to settle in the 
minds of the Athenian people, any ques- 
tion in physical science, even against the 
testimony of their own senses, as was pro- 
ved by the incident, that when two balls, 
the one of a single pounds weight, the oth- 
er ol a weiglit of ten pounds, were let fall 
from the top of a tower, the rabble, stand- 
ing by, refused to believe that tl ey both 
reached the ground at the same time, though 
they saw them both with their own eyes, 
strike into the dust at the same instant, be- 
cause Aristotle had distinctly stated, in one 
of his works, that it would take ten times 
as long for the one to fall as for the other. 

If such is the power of man-worship in 
matters of physical science, where the out- 
ward senses are concerned, what might we 
not expect to see in the moral political 
world, where the matters dealt with are hu 
man opinions. Woful indeed is the spec- 
tacle which the history of the world exhib- 
its. The discoverers of truth silenced and 
disgraced ; the founders of new systems 
condemned and imprisoned ; the defenders 
of human liberty bleeding on the scaffold or 
burning at the stake; civil despotism put- 
ting chains on the bodies and religious tyr- 
anny fastening fetters on the souls of men, 
through endless ages; and all this the re- 
sult, in a great measure, of blind adoration 
for some particular man. or set of men, — 
the worship of priests, statesmen, or war- 
riors. 

In our own age and country the tenden- 
cy to this vice is ai prevalent as it is dis- 
graceful ; and to none is this vice more ev- 
itiendy chargeable than In the members of 
the Roman Catholic Church. Far be it 
from me to censure this, or any other de- 
nomination of Christians, for cherishing a 
faith which differs from my own. They 
certainly have a right to their opinions, 
and as good a right to protest against Pro- 
testants as Protestants have to protest 
against them. But it cann.it be denied that 
Jiey have rendered themselves conspicu- 
ous for a self-abasing man-w rship, not on- 
ly absurd in itself, but eminently disgrace- 
ful to the independent spirit of our times. 
Were this veneration inspired only by 
knowledge and virtue; were ,ihil isophers 
and sages the only recipients of so much 
devotional homage ; were the ancient fi- 
thers and canonized saints of the Holy 
Church" the sole objects of this idolatry, 
such blind and unquestioning reverence 
might not be without its excuse. But so 
is this from being the fact, that that 
Church often bestows its greatest honors 
and emoluments upon the most reckless 
and needy adventurers, with but very little 
apparent regard to their soundness of mind, 
purity of soul, or consistency of conduct. 

This truth cannot, perhaps, be better il- 
lustrated than by a prominent example. A 
few years ago there arose in Eastern Mas- 
sachusetts one of those restless, ambitious, 
and enterprising Yankees, who are more 
noted for a native shrewdness and sagac- 
ity than for elevation of mind or honesty 
of purpose. This adventurer first turned 
his attention to politics, as being the field 
best adapted to his facility of belief and 
elasticity of conscience; but despite his 
greatest exertions, he wag attended by bad 
luck. He was nominated for the Legisla- 
ture, and several minor offices, but was 
bnaten in every race. At length thinking, 
disappointed politicians, that bis 



Social Fabric," till, finding that the theo- 
ries of Fonrier and St. Simon were several 
degrees below zero in the scale of public 
appreciation, and that, instead of '♦banish- 
ing poverty from society." he was only 
concentrating it in his own pockets, he 
concluded to try theology. Accordingly 
he was soon found to be "under convic- 
tion," and in a short time was duly " con- 
vert! d" to the orthodox Congregational 
Church. Here he distinguished himself 
by that fiery r^al which so often character- 
izes new converts;— doing the work of a 
sectarian editor, side by sid» with his fel- 
low-members of the fraternity. But a lim- 
ited experience in this new field of labor 
taught him that he was destined to reap 
the greater portion of his reward in the 
next world; and play" second fiddle" to 
the Puritan Recorder in /At*, so long as he 
should preserve his connection with the 
orthodox church. He therefore left it and 
joined the Unitarians ; but they, fancying 
that the new eoiner entered their aristo- 
cratic ranks with too much of a swagger, 
looked coldly on him, which so offended 
his self-esteem, that he soon stepped out of 
their communion into that of the more lib- 
eral Universalist8, who were then just com- 
ing into power. Afier sounding the » glad 
tidings" through the trumpet of that world 
saving denomination for a few months, he 
found that there were difficulties in his 
way ; for if he granted "universal salva- 
tion," he would be compelled to give a free 
ticket to those graceless Whigs who oppo- 
sed his election to the Legislature when he 
was a politician; and to those mean-spirit- 
ed D. D 's who came near starving him to 
death when he was an orthodox editor; 
and, worst of all, to those infatuated wretch- 
es who persisted in denouncing him and 
his plans of amelioration when he was a 
Socialist. This was a mortification not to 
be borne. There were, besides other rea- 
sons which contributed to render Univer- 
Sal Mm a sorry nag upon which to ride into 
popularity ; and though he had now pretty 
well "boxed the compass" of religious per- 
suasionB, he ventured to take one step more, 
and plant himself on Voltaire' platform of 
spiritual Deism. Here was a good place 
to take an observation, to survey the pro- 
gress he had made, and to view the pros- 
pect before him. He had indeed reached a 
dizzy height. Osa had been piled on Pe- 
lion. and his head was in the clouds. The 
atmosphere, instead of vivifying, seemed to 
choke him. He cast his gaze tipwaid into 
space, but it was a blank which made him 
shiver. Desperation seized him, and then 
it was that Orestks A. Brownson, shut- 
ting his eyes, holding his nose, and stifling 
his breath, plunged— down — down, into the ! 
pudridities of Roman Catholicism. And,! 
"uhat a plunge was there, my country- j 
men !" — worthy of Sam Patch in his pal- j 
miest days. He did not sink to rise no , - 
more, but presently came up to the surface, [ JAMhS 1. BELL, fc,SQ,.:

To the Editor of tht 

I regretted to And in an article on the 
subject of the prospective Branch Bank of 
Ashland, in your last paper, a severe, and I 
think, mistaken view, as to the illiberally 
of the Ixwisvillc banks towards the people 
of Shelby, and a hope expressed, that not 
a dollar of the stock in said Branch should 
be held by citizens of Louisville. Now, I 
think, Mr. Editor, if accurate information 
were obtained, the number of favor* to our 
citizen* from the Louisville banks, would 
be found to be much greater than most 
persons dream of, and I doubt not as large 
as to any county around it. Of this the 
writer has sufficient proofs that the afore- 
mentioned charge is unfounded. The stock 
of the branch bank of Ashland, will, from 
the present indications, be readily taken, 
I have no doubt, by our own citizens ; but 
should any of the citizens of Louisville de- 
sire to hold shares in the Bank, I am satis- 
fied they would be welcomed by the ma- 
jority of our citizens, and I can sec no rea- 
son whatever for the selfish wish express- 
ed in the article alluded to. The stockhol- 
ders in that quarter would naturally feel as 
anxious for the success of the bank as we 
could; and their control, as far as their 
vote went, could in no wise prove injuri- 
ous, as the directory would still be of our 
own citizens : and I cannot believe that 
there would be any selfish or narrow ex- 
hibition of local prejudice, on the part of 
that directory, toward those who furnished 
part of the capital of the Bank. 

I am aware of citizens of Louisville who 
are prepared to take n moderate amount of 
stock in the proposed Bank, who art very 
tar from wishing to take control it: its man- 
agement; and I leel satisfied they will meet 
with no petty jealous spirit in the distribu- 
tion of the slock. 

While you gave a well merited credit to 
the Branch Bank of Kentucky at Frank- 
fort, for the accommodating spirit always 
toward Shelby county, vou might 
very justly included the Farmers' 
at Frankfort, as very many of our 
an testify. ! am rather inclined 
e opinion that the article alluded to 
its way into your editorial columns 
during your absence, and would not. on re- 
flection, have received your sanction. In 
thus removing any wrong impression of 
said article on the minds of our Louisville 
neighbors, I am sure I echo but the general 

Sh ii.rv. 

The Bank of Ashland. 

To the Editor oj tht Shelby Xetcs : 

I noticed, among other things in your 
valuable paper of last week's issue, an able 
article upon the subject of the proposed 
Branch Bank in Shelbyville, and was much 
pleased with the manner in which the sub- 
ject was treated, and the reasons set forth 
why the citizens of this county should take 



tW Geo. Campbell, a New Hampshire 
jour printer, who left his "case," to take a 
seat upon the judicial bench of California, 
died recently in Nicaragua. 



Our citizens now have an opportunity 
of securing the means of stimulating the le- 
gitimate commerce of the county, by time- 
ly exertion on their part, in getting the re- 
quisite amount of stock subscribed to said 
bank. There is no reason why the whole 
amount of stock should not be subscribed 
at once, and by our own citizens. Our 
count v is second to but few counties in the 
State in the amount of her agricultural pro- 
ducts. And why should we remain tribu- 
taries longer to our sister counties, when 
we can with little effort take care of our- 
selves, and control our entire financial in- 
terests. The time was, when a little effort 
would have secured to us the railroad 
which now skirts the northern part of the 
ty, but by a masterly inactivity the 
as lost. Since then, considerable 
has been put forth to build a rail- 
road from Shelbyville to Louisville, with- 
A similar course pursued to- 
the proposed Bank, will no doubt 
with the same result Let us there- 
fore learn lessons of wisdom from the past 
and redeem our reputation as an enterpri- 

The establishment of a bank in Shelby- 
ville, will give an opportunity for the in- 
vestment of a large amount of capital in the 
hands of persons who are conscientious up- 
on the subject of usurious interest, or loan- 
ing money at a higher rate of interest than 
six per cent; and while other stocks legal- 
ly insure a greater amount of interest than 
six per cent., such capital is lost to our 
Community. There is no reason why bank 
slocks in Shelbyville will not yield as large 
a dividend as any bank stock in the State, 
the average of which is from 1*2 to lf» per 
cent, per annum. 

There can be but little doubt that a bank 
in Shelbyville would have an average de- 
posit of from fifty to seventy thousand dol- 
lars during the entire year, which amount 
would necessarily add materially to the 
dividends declared by the banks. Such an 
institution would be of great advantage to 
the community, from the fact that its ten- 
dency would be to correct the pernicious 
credit system which so lamentably exists, 
by doing the larger amount of ihe business 
through the bank, which would be of infi- 
nite importance to the entire community. 
Let our citizens bestir themselves to this 
work, and at once secure the boon so kind- 
ly tendered us by the Legislature of this 
State, and which many of our sister coun- 
ties made such strenuous efforls for and 
failed to procure

. — The documents 
and correspondence sent into the Senate, 
on Thursday last, comprise about 500 pages 
of foolscap. About one-third relates to 
movements to suppress recruiting, the or- 
ders of the Attorney General, the trial of 
Hertz «fc Co., and the first letter from Mr. 
Marcy to Mr. Buchanan, dated June 9th, 
which says the President will be pleased 
to learn that the British Government has 
not directed the enlistment and has con- 
demned the conduct of her officers thus 
engaged, called them to account and taken 
measures to put a stop to their proceedings. 
Mr. Buchanan communicated these views 
of the President to Lord Clarendon, July 
13th. 

Mr. Marcy to Mr. Buchanan, July 15th, 
says, that something more is looked for 
from Great Britain than a disavowal and 
that the latter promptly retrace her steps, 
adding that this gives grave importance to 
this subject. 

The President expects Great Britain to 
take effective measures to discharge from 
her | service such as were enlisted in the 
Fnited States, and who left this country 
under contracts made here to enter as sol- 
diers the British army. Mr. Buchanan to 
Mr. Marcy, July 16th, reports Lord Clar- 
endon as saying that any infringement of 
the laws of the United States was entirely 
contrary to the positive instruction of the 
British Government and as thinking that 
our Government had no just cause of com- 
plaint, as the British Government had de- 
termined that all proceedings for enlistment 
should terminate and that instructions to 
that effect had been sent here before Mr. 
Buchanan's letter was received. 

Mr. Marcy writes to Mr. Crampton, 
Sept. 5. wishing to know how far the scheme 
of recruiting within the United States had 
been authorized or sanctioned by the Brit- 
ish Government. To which Mr. Cramp- 
ton replies, Sept. 7th, "That he will wait 
for directions from his government before 
replying at length." Mr. Buchanan to 
Mr.Marcy, Sept. 28th, says, "Lord Clar- 
endon's note to him renders it improbable 
thai Mr. Crampton will not receive any 
such instructions, and that the propositions 
of his Lordship will not remove the unfa- 
vorable impression." Lord Clarendon to 
Mr. Buchanan. Sept. 27th, complains that 
we have violated our neutrality, saying 
"that arms and military stores in large 
quantities have been sent from the United 
States to Russia." He says, moreover, 
"that plots have been openly ordered and 
compromises entered into to cause insur- 
rection in her Majesty's dominions." Mr. 
Marcy sends Mr. Buchanan, Oct. 18th, a 
report of the trial of Hertz, saying, that the 
disclosures made thereby leave no doubt of 
the facts in the ca«e." Mr. Buchanan to 
Mr. Marcy, Oct. 3d, says, "The enlist- 
ment case presents a serious aspect," and 
remarks, "That the serious plols referred 
to by Lord Clarendon means the move- 
ments of the British Emigration Society, 
of Boston ; the members of which must be 
astonished at the importance their scheme 
has elicited from the British Government 
and Press." Mr. Buchanan (no date) as- 
sures Mr. Marcy that he did not entertain 
the most remote idea that the enlistment 
question has not been satisfactorily adjust- 
ed, until he learned the complicity of Mr. 
Crampton in the affair. Mr. Marcy to 
Mr. Buchanan, October 30th, says, " The 
President demands redress." Mr. Buc- 
hanan to Mr. Marcy, November 9lh, relates 
his connection with Lord Clarendon. Lord 
Clarendon to Mr. Crampton, November 
16th, "That her Majesty did not doubt 
that the frank expression of the regret for 
any violation of the United States law, 
which was contrary to instructions might 
have taken place, and the determination to 
remove all causes for further complaint by 
putting an end to all proceedings for en- 
listment, which ought satisfactorily and 
honorably terminate the difference between 
the two governments. The information 
possessed by her Majesty is imperfect — 
direct changes should be had. No offence 
to the United States was offered or contem- 
plated, and our relation of friendship should 
be maintained uninterrupted. 

Mr. Marcy, December 28th, sends Mr. 
Buchanan a very long letter, recapitulating 
the occurrence respecting enlistments, and 
saying of Mr. Crampton that his connec- 
tion with this affair has rendered him an 
unacceptable representative of her Majes- 
ty's Government near this Government, 
and you are directed by the President to 
ask her Brittannic Majesty's Government 
to recall him. 

Similar instructions were also sent with 
regard to Messrs. Rowcraft, Barcley, and 
Matthews. Consuls at Cincinnati, New 
York, and Philadelphia. Mr. Buchanan 
to Mr.Marcy, February 8th. 1856, says he 
had an interview with Lord Clarendon, and 
after some preliminary conversation on the 
subject of the prospect of peace with Rus- 
sia, he informed Lord Clarendon that he 
had came on purpose to read him Mr. 
Marcy's despatches to him (Mr. B.) of De- 
cember 28lh, in reply to Lord Clarendon's 
of the 16th of November, wishing to cor- 
rect an error, or rather an omission in his 
(Mr. C.'s) report of the remark made by 
Mr. Buchanan in Lord Clarendon's des- 
patches to Mr. Crampton. Mr. Buchanan 
read to his Lordship the following para- 
graph from his despatches to Mr. Cramp- 
ton of the 16th of November: "Before I 
proceed to offer any remarks on this, yours 
of the 13th, it will be proper to state that 
when it was read to me by Mr. Buchanan, 
I had no cognisance of Mr. Marcy's des- 
patches of July 15th, to which it alludes, 
and of which a copy was transmitted you, 
and upon my observing this to Mr. Buc- 
hanan he said he had not thought it neces- 
sary to enclose it to me, as before it reach- 
ed him he had received my note of July 
15ih. which he thought would finally settle 
the question, which had arisen between the 
I two governments." Concerning his state- 
I ment Mr. Buchanan says: "I then observ- 
ed to his Lordship that this omission con- 
sisted in not having added the qualification 
which I made at the time, to his remark; 
that when I received your despatches of 
July 15tb I had not the least idea of Mr. 
Crampton's complicity in the business of 
recruiting. In truth I never had until I re- 
ceived your private letter of September 22. 
His Lordship said that he did not recollect 
that 1 had made this remark at the time, 
though this was quite probable, as he did 
did not recollect that I had prev' 



A Fearful Admission. — The Boston Pi t 
lot, an acknowledged organ of the Roman 
Catholic Church, alludin» to Dr. F Mc- 
Clintock's reply to the lion. Joseph R. 
Chandler's defence of the Catholic Church, 
says: "We cannot but admit that Dr. Me- 
Clintock has the best of the argument." — 
Now, either Mr. ('handler did, or did not, 
know that the Romish head of his church 
exercised temporal power over its worship- 
ers in this country, If he did, he uttered a 
falsehood knowingly. If he did not, he 
manifests an ignorance, to say the least, 
that is scarcely pardonable in a man filling 
his position. But, hear the admission of 
the Pilot in its own language : 

"A friend of ours, and ■ theologian of 
considerable note, observed to us, the other 
day, that this is one of the penalties which 
the church militant has to suffer, in conse- 
quence of having children who in«ist upon 
defending her, not in her own way, but in 
their peculiar fashion, — paring down Ca- 
tholicity, so as to make it suit Prostestant 
tastes. We believe that it is generally ad- 
mitted that the weight of Catho/icitij is de- 
cidedly against the explainers-away of the 
Roman Catholic doctrine with reference to 
the relation between the spiritual and tem- 
poral. Even the explainers-away admit 
this. They cannot help admitting it, since 
every parish priest really exercises, and 
must exercise the authority which they de- 
ny to the Pope. They who deny it to 
him, exert themselves. 

"Our part is the true straight-forward 
one. It is, to state our doctrine boldly and 
fairly, and to try to be thorough Catholics 
in every sense of the word — to prove by 
our daily actions, that Catholicity is the on- 
ly SURE PILLAR A STATE CAN POS- 
SIBLY HAVE IN THESE DAYS." 



sfU ion al ton rent ion 

From the Philadelphia Titn. a, 

FiR6T Day. — Since Friday last the del- 
egates from the various sections have been 
constantly arriving, and the principal hotels 
arc thronged with members of the Nation- 
al Council, and others who are in .'.(tend- 
ance upon its sessions. 

About 11 o'clock yesterday 11 ni deci- 
ded that the meeting should be held at 
Franklin Hall. 

Shortly after 12 o'clock Mr. Smithers, of 
Pennsylvania, moved, that as Mr. Bartlett, 
the President, had not arrived, the Hon. 
William Sheets, of Indiana, be called upon 
to act as Chairman, /no Ion. of the day. 

Mr. Sheets was thereupon conducted to 
the Chair, when he addressed the Council 
in substance as follows: 

Gentlemen: — In thanking you for ihe 
honor you have bestowed on me. let me 
trust that in our counsel and in our action 
we shall be moved by a spirit of concilia- 
tion and union, which are the surest guar- 
antees of success. Let us have a ratty of 
sentiment in all things; or, if not that', at 
least a unity of action for our country's 
good. We have met as Americans, who 
love the country of our birth; let me hope 
that the true American spirit will pervade 
the whole of us in our actions and deliber- 
ations. We have but one foe to fight — let 
us meet that foe with a united front, and as 
one man armed with the right. So shall 
we ensure success by deserving it. 

Mr. Sheets was frequently interrupted 
with rounds of enthusiastic applause, that 
gave evidence of the cordial feeling which 
pervaded the great mass of the Council. 

There were about one hundred delegates 
present at the morning session, and the dis- 
position seemed to be to unite on a com- 
mon basis in opposition to the Democracy. 

Afternoon Session. — Towards 3 o'clock 
the delegates began to gather in the hall, 
and before the meeting had been organized 
the excitement on all sides had attained fe - 
ver heat, The American delegates and the 
National American delegates from Penn- 
sylvania indulged in the most ardent and 
denunciatory conduct and conversation; and 
at times, it was feared that the contest for 
supremacy between the two would end in 
an open and personal conflict. Those from 
other States looked on the wrangle in 
amazement, and without understanding in 
the smallest particular, the exact cause or 
meaning of the belligerency of the Pcnn- 
sylvanians, and some ventured to assuage 
the bitterness of feeling and stay the dis- 
cord between the two. 

In the midst of the noiffl and confusion, 
the President, pro tern., Mr. Sheets asccn- 
eed the platform and called the Convention 
to order. 

Hereupon a scene of the utmost confu- 
sion prevailed. Mr. Charles D. Freem an, 
Vice President of the National Council, 
came forward and claimed to be, in the ab- 
sence of the President, the presiding offi- 
cer of the Council. 

Mr. Sheets said he was willing to retire 
if it was the wish of the Council. [Cries 
of "keep where you arc," "hold on," "don't 
give up," "we'll stand by you," noise, tur- 
bulance, and applause,] 

During the whole of this scene of disor- 
der, excitement, personal and partisan feel- 
ing, and miscellaneous cries, a motion was 
made to adjourn, which prevailed with great 
unanimity, and amid shouts of applause. 

In a short time afterwards the members 
from abroad left the hall in charge of the 
Pennsylvania delegates of both sections, a 
portion of whom indulged in the most dis- 
graceful scenes. 

Last evening the delegates from the sev- 
eral States held caucusses at the different 
hotels in reference to the contested seats in 
each, and other matters of minor import- 
ance. 

Caucus of the Southern Delegation. — 
The members of the National Council from 
the Southern States held a caucus last eve- 
ning. Quite a large number of gentlemen 
were present, and took part in the proceed- 
ings, which were of the most animated and 
resolute character. 

The object of the caucus being to decide 
upon the movements of the Southern mem- 
bers in the National Council, during its 
session, quite a general expression of feel- 
ing look place among those present. Af- 
ter considerable discussion, a resolution to 
stand on the twelfth section of the national 
platform, adopted in June last, at all haz- 
ards, was agreed to with great unanimity . 

While a number of those present have 
expressed their hostility to the introduction 
of that section into the platform, it has been 
urged on all hands, so far as the South is 
concerned, not to relinquish it, be the con- 
sequences what they may. 

Second Day. — The National Council 
assembled yesterday morning. About two 
hundred delegates were present. The coun- 
cil proceeded to perfect its organization, the 
roll being called by the Secretary. All 
who were delegates to the National Coun- 
cil that met in this city last June, wen: ad- 
mitted. 

[We omit the names of delegates, except 
those from Kentucky, who are as follows:] 
John W. Finncll, Thomas H. Clay, G. 
W. Gist, Thomas Todd, A. A. Campbell, 
S. Carpenter, Jr.. W. L. Underwood. B. 
J. Raphael. 

When Louisiana was called, the members 
of the delegation presented their creden 
tials. Several members bbjci 



bjected that the 



! Councils olthat State were not under the 
1 jurisdiction of the National Council. Geo. 
Eastis, Jr.. on behalf of the delegation, ar- 
gued to show that two-thirds of the mem- 
bers of the councils of Louisiana were Cath- 
olics who had taken a solemn pledge to re- 
cognize no temporal authority as superior 
to that of the constitution of the United 
States. The previous question was called 
upon the motion to admit and sustained, 
and the vote being taken, the delegation 
was admitted. 

When Pennsylvania was called, it ap- 
peared that while there were live delegates 
whose claims to seats were not disputed, 
there were two sets of claimants for the re- 
maining seats — one headed by John R. 
Edie, and the other by John W. Ashmcad 
— the latter claiming to have been elected 
under tht; authority of the State Council, 
of which .fos. W. Ilunseker is President. 

Afternoon Srssio>>. — There were about 
one hundred and Hit* members present. 

The chair declared that the first busi- 
ness in order was the subject of the ad- 
'mission of the delegates from Pennsylva- 
nia. A delegate from Ohio offered a pre- 
amble, setting forth that, whereas, there 
were two sets of delegates from Pennsyl- 
vania claiming seats in the Council, under 
the authority of different Slate Councils, 
antl a resolution to the effect that the two 
delegations be permitted to choose persons 
to set forth their respective claims, that 
each delegation be allowed an half hour 
each for this purpose, ami that the Nation- 
al Council then proceed to vote upon the 
admission without further debate. This 
was carried. A long discussion then en- 
sued upon the claims of the two delega- 
tions. Tbi Edie delegation was against 
the 12th *celion of the American platform, 
and the other for it. but the question of ad- 
mission was not discussed in reference to 
the merits of that section. The chairman 
decided that the Council must now proceed 
to the vote upon the question of admission. 
The roll was then called, the members re- 
sponding " Edie" or "Ilunseker," accord- 
ing to the set of delegates which they desi- 
red to be admitted. The excitement was 
increased by various members firing their 
reasons for the vote they cave. The re- 
sult stood : for the Edie delegation 84, 
Ilunseker if). The latter vote was given 
by the delegate* from the States of Dela- 
ware, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, 
Louisiana, California, Arkansas, Tennes- 
see, and Kentucky, together with one del- 
egate from Ohio, two from Pennsylvania, 
and seven delegate* from New York. In 
giving his vote for Mr. Edie, Mr. A. B. 
Ely, of Massachusetts, said that he did sc 
because, if the Edie men had done wrong, 
Massachusetts had followed, and they must 
stand together. Judge Ellis, of the Amer- 
ican Organ, Washington,!). C. said he vo- 
ted for Edie because he considered the 
charter of ihe Slate Council the highest au- 
thority upon the subject, until it was re- 
voked or suspended. The announcement 
of the result was followed by much confu- 
sion and excitement. 

Thikd Day. — The council met this mor- 
ning at ten o'clock. 

The Chairman announced that the Pres- 
ident, Mr. Bartlett, had arrived in the city. 
Mr. Bartlett was then introduced and took 
his s: at. lie was received with great ap- 
plause, and made a few remarks upon ta- 
king the chair. 

Mr. Burr moved that n committee of one 
from each State be appointed as a Business 
Com mittee. 

Mr. A. C. Brewster, of Massachusetts, 
spoke of the 12th section of the platform, 
and of the propriety of disposing of that 
distracting question as soon as possible. 
He was opposed to the appointment of a 
Business Committee, and would offer a 
resolution as a substitute ' to that of Mr. 
Burr. It was as follows: 

ll'Iurcux, The 12th section of the plat- 
form adopted by the American Council in 
June, 1S55, was neither proposed by the 
South nor sanctioned by the North, there- 
fore said section is hereby stricken out. 

A motion that the "Ilunseker delegates" 
of Pennsylvania be admitted lo seats in 
the north end of the hall was adopted. 

Mr. Hardy, of Louisiana, read a memo- 
rial professing to express the views of two 
thirds of the American party in the State. 
It refuses to affiliate with Catholic mem- 
bers of the party, and disclaims them as 
"bogus Americans." Mr. Hardy spoke at 
some length in explanation of the position 
of the Catholic and anti-Catholic wings of 
the party. He contended that there was 
no distinct ion between a Roman antl an 
American Catholic in Louisiana. The an- 
ti-Catholic Americans can carry the State, 
and he, (Mr. Hardy.) would not sit in 
council with Catholics. One or the other 
of the delegations must be excluded. A 
motion was made to admit both sets of 
delegates, as the delegation would even 
then not he full. After some discussion 
the whole matter was laid upon the table. 

Mr. Brewster renewed his resolution re- 
garding the 12th section. An amendment 
was offered and accepted by the mover of 
the original resolution — adding after the 
words "stricken out" as follows: "That as 
regards the subject of slavery, we abide by 
the principles and provisions of the Consti- 
tution of the United States, yielding no 
more, and claiming no less.*' 

Mr. Brewster contended that the ques- 
tion of the repeal of the 12th section was 
the great object of the Council, and the 
sooner it was reached the better. He 
would oppose every effort at an adjourn- 
ment of the Council .until decided action 
was taken upon the great question. He 
spoke the views of the entire North and the 
West, when he said that unless the obnox- 
ious- section was repealed, they could not 
go with, their friends in battling with the 
common enemy. The speaker earnestly 
appealed to the Council to lay aside the 
cause of discord, and to know no South, no 
North, no East, no West, in the great 
question to be decitlcd. He invoked mem- 
bers to come to a vote without delay. 

A proposition was made to pass by the 
proposition of Mr. Brewster informally so 
as to take up a resolution providing for 
taking the vote on the resolution. The 
ayes and noes, were called on the proposi- 
tion to pass by the resolution informally. 
The result was as follows — ayes 94, noes 
72. The result was received with ap- 
plause. 

The resolution provides as the way of ta- 
kingthe vote on Mr. Brewster's resolution, 
each State represented shall be entitled to 
the same number of votes as they arc en- 
titled to representatives in Congress. Af- 
ter some discussion, and without coming to 
a vote, the Council adjourned. 

The hours of meeting were fixed at 10 
A. M. and 4 P. M. 

The following States are not represented 
in Council : Alabama, South Carolina, 
Georgia, Maine, Vermont, and Mississippi.

A motion was made thai the delegates

which was agreed lo with but few dissent- 
ing voices. 

Mr. Erastus Brooks offered a resolution 
to the effect that the vote upon that portion 
of the report of the committee on creden- 
tials, referring to the contested cases in 
Pennsylvania he reconsidered. 

After some debate, a motion was made 
to lay the resolution on the table, which 
prevailed by a large majority. 

The Convention adjourned to meet at 
10 o'clock this morning. • 

The National Convention presented a 
scene of the utmost confusion all the morn- 
ing. Threats of secession were boldly pro- 
claimed by the Southern members. The 
session was occupied in speeches. No 
progress was made in business. 

The meeting then adjourned till Monday. 

Moxpay's PsVtll II OTPS 

[Condensed troni the Inquirer and American.] 

The Convention met Monday morning 
at 10 o'clock, in Sansom Street 1 1 all. 

The Convention was called to order at 
quarter past 10 o'clock, by the President, 
Mr. Marsh. The Rev. Mr. Campbell of- 
fered an appropriate prayer. Several del- 
egates who retired on Saturday were pre- 
sent this morning. The minutes of Sat- 
urday were read ; before any action was 
taken upon their adoption, Sir. Small, of 
Pa., claimed that his resolutions were the 
first business in ortler this morning. Mr. 
Elam, of La., submitted that the Con- 
vention had no right to repudiate a platform 
made by the National Council. The min- 
utes were then adopted after a slight amend- 
ment. 

Mr. Small again insisted that his reso- 
lutions were first in order. Mr. Elam pro- 
tested against this course. The chairman 
said Mr. Elam was not in order. Mr. E- 
lam appealed from the decision of the chair. 
The appeal was, on motion, laid on the ta- 
ble. 

The resolutions ot Mr. Small were then 
read. 

Mr. Killinger, of Pa., moved the fol- 
lowing as a substitute for the resolution of 
Mr. Smith :

[A number of members changed their 
votes, among them E. B. Bartlett, of Ky., 
He "changed his vote from Davis to V 'ill- 
more, because he knew the latter to be ac- 
ceptable to all Kentucky."] 

The Secretary announced the result as 
follows: Number of voles cast. 211. Nec- 
essary to a choice, 122. 

Millard Fillmore 171); Garrett Davis -j:?; 



votes cast, was the nominee of the Con- 
vention for the office of Preside: t of the 
United States. 

Mr. Scraggs, of New York, said as he 
had first nominated George Law for Presi- 
dent, he now moved that Millard Fillmore 
be declared the unanimous choice of the 
Convention. 

The motion being put it was carried by 
a tremendous shout of ayes. 

Six hearty cheers were then given, and 
the greatest joy prevailed amid all present, 
there being at this time six hundred outsid- 
ers in the room, who gave vent to their feel- 
ings of delight in tones of thunder. 

Mr. Reedy, of Tenn., proposed three 
cheers for New York, which were given. 
Three cheers were given for Kentucky. 
Mr. Boiling, of Va., said he came there 
on a platform of "right and victory." We 
had now got Fillmore, and we wanted one 
of the two old Hickorys. He therefore 
nominattd Gen. Call, of Fla., for Vice 
President, and eulogised him as a man of 
truth, courage and ability. 

Kenneth Raynor, of North Carolina, was 
also nominated. 

Gen. Call, of Fla., most respectfully de- 
clined the distinguished honor, and begged 
to be permitted to present one more ac- 
ceptable. He proposed the name of An- 
drew Jackson Donelson. of Tennessee. 

Immense applause followed this an- 
nouncement. 

Mr. Andrews, of Va., nominate.! Peony 
Walker, of Ala., for Vice President. 

The Convention then proceeded to bal- 
lot for Vice President. The ballot for a 
candidate for the Vice Presidency was at- ' 
tended with much excitement, and the fre- j 
_ quent changes of votes created difficulty in 
with, but most of them were of so compli- ma,i >ng a correct record. The candidates 
cated a nature as not to be generally un- 1 at 'irst voted for, were Wm. K. Smith, of 



of slavery into territory north of 36:30 

Mr. Small accepted the substitute. Mr. 
Haven, of New York, moved to lay the 
whole business upon the table, which was 
, carried as follows: ayes 141, nays GO. — 
; The result was received with applause and 
loud cheers. 

Mr. Bro wnlow offered the following res- 
olution : 

Resolved. That this Canvention proceed 
forthwith to nominate candidates for Pres- 
ident and Vice President of the United 
States. 

Mr. Brownlow then called the previous 
question on the resolution. The previous 
question was ordered. The result was an- 
nounced as follows — Ayes 151, nays 51. 

The Convention then proceeded to nom- 
inate persons for candidates for President 
and Vice President of the United States. — 
Mr. A. Stewart, of Pa., nominated Millard 
Fillmore, of New York, for President. — 
Mr. Sly, of Md., nominated W. R. Smith, 
of Alabama, for Vice President- 
Mr. Perkin, of Conn., by leave, took the 
floor, and made a speech in favor of a re- 
peal of the naturalization laws. He then 
referred to Kansas and Nebraska, and 
discussed what was lo be done with them 
in the position in which they had been 
placed by the repeal of the Missouri Com- 
promise. 

Mr. Perkin concluded his remarks at 
quarter past 2 o'clock, by announcing that 
Connecticut now retired, and by inviting 
those States who thought proper to meet 
them at 4 o'clock, at Merchant's Hotel, to 
form a new platform. [All sorts of groans, 
hisses. &c, followed this announcement.] 
A number of propositions were offered 
as to how the election should be proceeded 



river. 1 ne perpe- 
trators of this crime were (ieo. Bennett, 
recently hung, and who is now con- 
fined in the county jail on a charge of felo- 
ny. A few nights before the expiration of 
Bennett, it was rumored that he designed 
taking his own life, and to prevent him from 
making the aUempt, Mr. Thomas, the jai- 
lor, tlctermincd to place another person in 
the cell with him that night. For this pur- 
pose he selected an old man from Shelby 
county, who had been committed on a 
charge of 
believe. 

The next morning, after leaving the cell 
in company with Mr. Thomas, the jailor, 
who had entered to remove him, he asked 
if any person of the name of Slevin had been 
drowned at the wharf within a year or two. 
This at once excited the curiosity of the 
jailor, who demanded to know why he ask- 
the question ? The old man then entered 
I into the details of a conversation that oc- 
curred between him and Bennett during 
the night, ol which the following is the 
substance : He told him that late one Sun- 
day night, at the time of high water in the 
winter two years ago, a man came down in 
Joe. Taylor's cellar, on the warf near 
Fourth street, and called for a cup of cof- 
fee, which he received, and soon after start- 
ed. Bennett and his accomplice, who 
were in the cellar, followed him, knocked 
him down, and then robbed him of on 
hundred and sixty dollars, which 
on his person. His watch was 
out, but Bennett, again replaced it in the 
pocket of their victim, who was then drag- 
ged to the river and thrown in. where he 
remaint 
though 

made for the body 

The details of the murder were not dwelt 
upon by Bennett, who evidently endeavor- 
ed to impress upon the mind of his com- 
panion the folly of taking any article that 
could be identified, as a watch, for instance. 
He alluded to the subsequent discovery 
j of the body with the watch on ii. which at 
i once lulled all suspicion of foul plav. The 
robbery and alleged murder of Mullen was 
| also alluded to. and he blamed himself for 
suffering the watch to be taken from the 
I man, adding, that it was against his wishes, 
and if it had been left he, the accused, would 
now be at large and not a condemned 
criminal. 

All the circumstances of this narrative, 
together with the fact that the prisoner who 
heard it is an entire stranger in the city .and 
had no previous knowledge of the death of 
Mr. Slevin. tend to confirm the truth of the 
statement, and solves 
long hung over the d

un- 
derstood, and the Convention finally after 
much excitement had prevailed, agreed to a 
motion of Mr. Ely, to proceed to an infor- 
mal vote for nomination, each member's 
name being called, and he voting for who 
he may please. 

The vote proceeded with and the follow- 
ing the result of the informal ballot i 

Millard Fillmore, N. Y. 71 ; George 
Law, N. Y., 23: Judge McLean, 0..7; R. 
V. Stockton, N. .1., 8; Garrett Davis, Ky., 
13; John Bell, Tenn., 5: W. F. Johnson. 
Pa , 3; Erastus Brooks, N\ Y., 1; Sam. 
Houston. Texas, (5; Kenneth Raynor, N. 
C, 5: I). F. Campbell, 1: John M. Clay- 
ton, 1. 

Mississippi which is represented by one 
delegate, refused to vote. 

Gov. Johnson, of Pennsylvania, received 
1 1 votes, but befor the vote was closed he 
announced that he was not a candidate, 
whereupon several members changed their 
votes for other parties. 

Afternoon Session. — The Convention 
was called to order by the President, at 5 
o'clock. 

Mr. Brownlow arose and proposed to re- 
ceive into the church, General Call, of 
Florida, Percy Walker, of Alabama, and all 
others who have been going astray. 

Mr. Brownlow, amid great applause, ad- 
vanced toward General Call and embraced 
him. 

The greatest merriment was occasioned 
by this fond embrace, and Mr. Brownlow 
took his seat, with his brow radiant with 
joy, amid the cheers of all present. 

General Call said he had given his hand 
to his brother, and he now gave his heart 
to the Convention. He was truly happy 
to be enabled to return without the least 
inconsistency, and resume his seat, now 
that peace and harmony were restored. — 
We are now a great American party, dedi- 
cated to our country, our whole country, 
and nothing but our whole country. After 
arriving at home, he could say that his 
bretheren of the North had not, perhaps, 
granted all he wished, but it was his fault 
and not theirs. When he withdrew from 
the Convention, it was from a holy devo- 
tion to his conntry, and not through any 
angry feeling. He promised to uphold the 
candidate of the Convention, and if neces- 



Ala.; Percy Walker, of Ala.; Andrew J. 
Donelson, of Tenn.; A. H. H. Stuart, of 
Va.; Henry J. Gardner, of Mass.; and 
Kenneth Raynor, of N. C. But after the 
vote had been called, delegate:, from vari- 
ous States arose, and changed their votes 
in favor of Mr. Donelson. The result was 
announced as follows : Walker, ; Stuart, 
2: Kaynor, «; Donelson, 191 ; (iarlner. 
12. 

Mr. Donelson having received a majority 
of the votes for the Vice Presidency, was 
declared duly nominated for that position. 

On motion aud amid much applause, the 
nomination was made unanimous. 

A motion was made, and agreed to, that 
a committee of five be appointed to wait 
upon the nominees and inform them of their 
selection, and Messrs. A. II. H. Stuart, of 
Va.; Andrew Stewart, of Pcnn.; Erastus 
Brooks, of N. Y:; E. B. Bartlett. of Kv.; 
Wm. J. Eames, of Mass.; and the Presi- 
dent of the Convention were appointed a 
committee to perform the business. 

Speeches were then made by Gen. Call, 
Erastus Brooks, A. H. H. Stuart, Major 
Donelson, Parson Brownlow, Gen. Pick- 
ett, A. R. Boteler, and T. A. K. Nelson, 
which were received with great applause. 

Mr. McCune, of Virginia, said that the 
National Council had adopted a platform 
which was satisfactory neither to the North 
nor to the South. They had now a plat- 
form satisfactory to both, in the shape of 
Fillmore and Donelson. He moved that I 
this Convention repudiate all platforms. — j 
The motion was seconded, and thereupon 
a great scene of confusion took place, in | 
the midst of which the vote was taken on ! 
the motion.but it was impossible for any one ' 
to decide whether it was adopted or re- i 
jected. Tho President was unable to tell, ! 
butjhe thought that it was lost. On the 
other hand, the Virginians contended that 
it was adopted. In the midst of the confu- 
sion, a motion was made to adjourn sine 
die, and it prevailed.

f^We place at our mast-head to-day 
the nominees of the American Party for 
President and Vice President— Millard 
Fillmore, and Andrew J. Donelson. 

It is not necessary to enter into any ex- 
tended comments upon our ticket. The 
name of Millard Fillmore is historic al- 
ready. Before his retirement from the 
arena of active life and usefulness, the 
memory of the man was embalmed in the 
hearts of the people. He was garnered in 
their affections, even while yet laboring in 
thr discharge of the duties of his exalted 
office. He retired from the Presidential 
rhair in the enjoyment of the unbounded 
confidence of the country, the good will of 
al! political parties,andthe respect of all the 
governments of the world. The North, 
the South, the East, the West, were names 
unknown to Mr. Fillmore in the exercise 
of his duties as President. He knew noth- 
ing but the whole country— the Union and 
the Constitution. He stands before the 
American people the acknowledged em- 
bodiment of all those high qualities which 
fit a man for the Chief Magistracy of a 
great nation. 

Adrew Jackson Donelson, is the adopt- 
ed son of Gen. Andrew Jackson, the hero-

Habrod8bvr6H, Fel 
To the Editor of The Shelby Newt: 

Mt. Middleton: I am sorry to see that a war is 
still being waged in the "Commonwealth," against 
the re-enactment of the lottery grant for the benefit 
of " Shelby College," and that the " Cincinnati man" 
has found some, even in Kentucky, who, for a con- 
sideration, are willing to aid and abet him in crush- 
ing one of the best institutions in the State ; — an in- 
stitution which, if freed from the Incubus of debt 
hanging over it, would soon become one of the most 
popular in the West. Kentucky has for many years 
ranked high, — thanks to the energetic and talented 
management of "Science Hill" by Mrs. Tevis, — as a 
foster mother of education ; and while the Legisla- 
ture of Kentucky has, with much liberality, voted for 
raising taxes for educational purposes, the people 
have with great promptness responded by sanction- 
ing all the demands of their law-givers; and it does 
seem strange that any hesitation should be manifes- 
ted by the present Legislature,— an assembly, which 
I am informed, is the ablest that has assembled at the 
capital for years, in passing the Shelby College 
grant. To such a body, appreciating as they must, 
the immense advantages accruing to the State from 
the vigorous and healthy existence of Shelby Col- 
lege, there can be no doubtful or middle policy. I 
cannot force myself, in view of the talent and high 
ability assembled at the capital, (or a moment to think 
the measure will fail. To such men the merit and 
justice of the measure will be too apparent, to permit 
it to be injured by any outside Issues that by the most 
ingenious "pocket Feeler" can possibly be raised. I 
am convinced, stranger as I am, that the machina- 
tions of an unfeeling foreigner, sustained by hire- 
lings, will meet the prompt action of honest and far- 
seeing men. The proudest and most ennobling part 
of a public man's fame, is that which inures to him 
from his efforts in promoting the spread of intelli- 
gence among the people ; and as the present Legisla- 
ture, as a body, have high ability, they should look 
not only to equity in this case, but, by their honest 
decision in the premises, prove themselves worthy of 
far higher political trusts, which they may well as- 
pire to in the future. Shelby county, having just 
mm and statesmen at the helm, should have an abi- 
ding faith in the success of this vital measure. 

I read, with much pleasure, your able, lucid, and 
very just communication, in the Commonwealth, on 
the subject of this re-enactment : and from a friend 
whom I met here. I learn that r hus had strong in- 
fluence upon all right-minded men, who have seen it, 
in and out of the Legislature. This communication 
is only another proof that your j>cn is always wield- 
ed, effectually too, in favor of Truth and Justice, and 
is taken, these high points in 
are telt and acknowledged, and 
must extend your already large circulation to a de- 
gree commensurate with your deserts. May you 
long live to wear the honors you have so 
and wear so gracefully. 

In coming to this place, I passed over 
rugged country ; but in this county, and especially 
on the Cane Run pike, the land is fine, and resem- 
bles that around Lexington very closely ; and from 
the crops, I should suppose the resemblance cquaily 
close in quality. If you should ever penetrate this 
country, (and I hope you will,) let me recommend 
you to the care of Col. Petty, of the Eagle Hotel, 
who is every inch a gentleman, and keeps one of the 
best and most pleasant houses in the interior ol our 
State. This is my first sojourn in Harrodsburgh, and 
I cannot quit it without letting you know how much 
I have been surprised and pleased with its suburban 
beauty. The private residences, dotting the entire 
circle of the town, are exceedingly beautiful, and ex- 
hibit great taste and refinement. Strolling in the 
neighborhood of the celebrated " Graham" establish- 
ment, with your eyes resting upon that and the sur- 
rounding villas and superb residences, while the evc- 
ningftun sheds its soft radiance upon hill and dale, 
one could almost fancy himself gazing upon the vine 
clad hills adjacent to Florence. 

The citizens here are in great hopes about the ac- 
tion of Congress, upon the proposition to sell the 
Military Asylum, and remove the "old soldiers" to 
some other point. They trust that the pride and 
beauty of their town, the world-known establishment 
of Dr. Graham, will again be known as the "Har- 
rodsburgh Springs." Should this be done, and that 
magnificent establishment go into the hands ot pop 



ular parties, they might soon win back its cosmopo-

I have drawn these scribblings out much longer 
than I intended ; but before I close you must allow 
me to mention one other point of interest here. I al- 
lude to the manufactory of that Napoleon of Gun- 
smiths, B. Mills, who is one of the most pleasant and 
agreeable gentlemen I have met in my trip. His 
guns are beyond the reach of competition. He show- 
ed me one that he had sold, by order, to a gentleman 
of "Frankfort on the main," and for beauty of finish 
and perfection in all its parts, the piece cannot bc 
equalled in this country, or on the "other side."

P. S. I have understood that the enemies oj the 
College have endeavored to make capital against it, 
out of the fact that the heavy debt against it, is due 
one man. I would seem, however, to an.mtelligent 
mind, a matter of no consequence to the Legislature 
whether the debt was due one or fifty, and more es- 
pecially as this debt was created upon the faith of th c 
action of their own body a few years since, a faith 
which, "works" of theirs has since shown tobc, vain 
and ill-founded. • O. *

singing to the witching strains of Strauss's Band, 
which seemed to ring out a merrier peal than usual. 
It was a bright vision of youthful happiness rarely to 
be met with; and in youth, beauty, and joyousness, 
far outshone the more brilliant parties assembled 
there so often this winter. Bright little fairies, link- 
ed hand in hand, like rose-buds in a wreath, were 
floating through the giddy mazes of thc dance, in- 
terspersed with soldiers, sailors, generals, cavaliers, 
and jockeys of every size and age. 

Where there were so many to admire, and so much 
to attract the attention, hsw shall I attempt to enu- 
merate the many simple, fanciful, yet beautiful dress- 
es assumed for the occasion. There was Night— 
Sallie Graham — brightening the scene with her 
dreamy, golden-lidded stars, while Morning— Lucy 
T. Taylor— floated through the dance as spotless as 
a buried pearl within a rosy shell. 

Gen. Washington— Charlie Applegate— had laid 
aside his dignity for the occasion, and was joyously 
"tripping it on the light fantastic toe," with a bright 
little Shepherdess,— Emma Batchelor— the gay rib- 
bons of her jaunty hat, saucily floating about the 
hoary locks of the venerable General. 

The gallant and gaily attired Greek sailor— John- 
nie Watson— paid his devoirs to all the grace and 
beauty of thc evening, yet the lovely Maid of Ath- 
ens— Miss Lucy Burnley— with the golden light of 
her flowing hair, seemed the guiding star of the 
youthful sailor's devotions. 

The spirituelle little Flower Gir.l— Judith Cole- 
man,— Even now, methinks I hear her song: 
I've wandered through fair gardens, 

All wet with morning dew; 
And gathered fairy blossoms, 

Of every scent and hue. 
I've rosebuds for the msiden. 

Like her laughing lips they grew, 
£*• wreaths through halls of revelry, 
A crimson blush lo throw. 
But not. bleasom have vou gathered, ma pstUe, aalf 



am have you 
yourself. 



Willi those dove-like eyes of thine. 
And thy bright hair's silken iwine. 
And here is old Mother Hubbard,— Lucy Todd— 
even she has come from her cupboard to view the 
festive scene; perchance to get her dog a bone. And 
Dame Crump. — Eliza Brown — ah! do not let me for- 
get the dear little darling, with her soft, sweet smile, 
and winning ways. 

The spirited Miss Hord personated the United 
States, and seemed fully competent to the task, with 
her flashing eye, and peerless mien Also, even 
William Penn, — T. Lindsey — the sober Quaker, was 
pirouetting and wheeling through a Scotiisch. with a 
saucy Gipscy — Monia Taylor — 

••A re you grave? Thc gipscy sly, 
Turns on you her merry eye, 
And you laugh, despite your will." 
And here go the little Quakeresses— Annie and 
Rotie Watson — with their demure faces, and sober 
colored dresses, the ver) encarnation ol purity, 
"Soft beauty sleeps upon their brow, 

And dreams within ihcir eyes, 
As meek and pure as spotless doves, 
Or beings from the skies " 
The gallant Robin Hood— Harry Churchill— with 
his bold, handsome face, and flashing eye, was vis a 
vis to a sprightly girl— Sis Brcwn — attired in the 
primitive style of a lady twenty-five years ago; whilst 
thc Highland Chieftain, Rob Roy— Lewis Jackson 
— walked thc room as joyously as if upon the bon 
uie braes of Scotland. 

How shall I describe the fascinations of thc beau- 
tiful Helen McGregor?— Helen Talbott,— the winning 
smile of the sparkling Gitana— L. Lindsey,— the 
stately grace of Lady Macbeth— Annie Todd,— or 
the fresh, artless manners of her sister, the Swiss 
Peasant. 

Miss Ellen Wingate, a French Marquisa of thc 
olden time moved through the dance like the spirit 
of joy, 

Her smile was like thc starlight, 

Of summer's softest skies. 
And worlds of joyousness there shone, 
From out her witching eyes. 
And Miss Sallie Harlan, thc darling Fille du Regi- 
ment, "was like a dream of poetry, that may not be 
written or told— exceeding beautiful." 

Jack Todd, fantastically attired as a Persian sailor, 
had chosen for his partner in the dance, La Sylphide. 
—Belle Lindsey— and a bewitching little sylph she 
was, "who moved in beauty through the dance, with 
buoyant feet that seemed to skim the air." 

There were two darling little Red Riding Hoods, 
— Jennie McKce, and Barbara Allen, — "carrying 
Grandma a basket of cake," happily there was no 
wolf to mar their enjoyment. And a demure little 
English housekeeper, — Lina Blanton, — yet the rogu- 
ish sparkle of her bright blue eye, belied the prim- 
ness ot her dress. 

Thc McKinleys, three darling little pets of a tew 
summers, were there, dressed as ladies of the olden 
time ; Annie as Lady Rowena, Mary as a lady ol the 
14th century, and Lizzie as Mary Queen of Scots. 

Mary Churchill, as a Peasant Girl,— and a sweet 
little peasant she was, with her bright eyes, peeping 
from under the silk 'kerchief that bound her brow. 
And Jennie Jackson,— 1 know not what she persona- 
ted, unless a rose-bud, for none other would suit her 
half so well. They were all beautiful,: 
A lovely group of little girls, 
Like rosebuds twined with woven pearls. 
There was a miniature General Washington — T. 
Link— who attracted much attention by his mimic 
attitudinizing. A lilliputian Napoleon (J. Evansj 
and a sporting Jockey of three years— H. Blanton. 
It was not long ere the Petit Corporal concluded he 
would rather wear the whip, and the dashing Jockey 
gladly exchanged it for the sword ; but, sad to tell, 
they both fell early in the action, and were carried 
home in a state o! unconscious happiness. 

There were a number of Highland lassies and 
chieftains, too numerous to mention. Even Brother 
Jonathan— J. Roberts-graced the occasion; but, un- 
like ihs gallant character he represented, he seemed 
very shy of the ladies,-- ensconsed himself in a cor- 
ner, where he was soon surrounded by a merry troop 
of United States soldiers and sailors, a fit representa- 
tiveof "Young America." There were also many 
others ol whom I would be glad to speak, who per- 
sonated none other than their own "sweet inno- 
cence," but time and space force me to desist. There 
were many "lookers on in Venice," who showed a 
very disinterested anxiety about the children's health, 
seeming to feel confident that a later hour than ten 
would make them all sick. But " Young America" 
were not to be so easily deprived of their rights, and 
one o'clock found many of them dancing as joyously 
as in the early part of the evening. The little guests 
with the utmost assiduity, applied themselves to the 
business in hand, and what with dancing, chatting, 
promenading, and pleasure- making, they passed an 
evening of unmingied enjoyment. It is a pleasant 
theme upon which I could write half thc night, but 
the lessening wax of my candle, and the increasing 
wax of the small hours warn me to bed; so good 
night. Minnie May.

5th, 1855. 



Kansas- — On Wednesday, Mr. Grow of 
Pa., reported a bill from the committee on 
Territories, annulling the act of the Kansas 
Legislature which required certain oaths 
(including an oath to support the fugitive 
slave law) to be taken by public officers 
of the Territory. A dispatch from New 
York of the 27th ult., says the President 
directed Governor Shannon to visit the bor- 
der counties of Missouri and inform the 
people that if any invasion of Kansas was 
attempted, it would be resisted by all tha 
power he could command ; and also to in- 
form the people of Kansas that any insur- 
rectionary movement on their part would 
be suppressed by the same power. It is 
stated that if the Topeka (Free-State) Con- 
vention assembled, process would be serv- 
ed upon thc members by the U. S. Officers, 
ordering them to desist from assuming 
functions to which they have not been le- 
gally elected ; but no military force used 
unless the civil authority should be resisted. 
It is also said that the Republican leaders 
have sent out instructions, by express mes- 
sengers, to the Convention merely to meet 
and adjourn. Also that the President had 
received assurances that the border coun- 
ties of Missouri would make no sggres- 
sive movement. And so the wholo matter 
is likely to have a peaceful solution. 



Foreign «V<p#r>\ 

New York, March I. 

The Havte packet Arago has arrived 
with additional and highly interesting par- 
ticulars of the affairs of Europe. 

Count Cavour and the Sardinian Minis- 
ter at Paris, represent Sardinia in the ap- 
proaching Peace Conference. 

Letters from St. Petersburgh represent 
an almost universal desire for peace on the 
part of Russia. The Russian Ministers 
are very anxious that Prussia he admitted 
to the Conference, but nothing definite has 
been decided upon. 

Hostilities are still kept up in the Cri- 
mea, the Russians continually tiring upon 
the Allies from the north forts. 

The mate of an English brig, arrived at 
St. Johns from Shields, reports that on the 
1 9th ult., he saw a steamship two miles 
distant, steering East. Her starboard bul- 
warks were gone, and the foremast carried 
away, and her paddle wheels in slow mo- 
ion. It was very foggy at thc time, and 
the wind blowing almost a gale. It was 
believed almost beyond conjecture ihat the 
crippled vessel was the missing steamer 
Pacific. The Arago, on her voyage, en- 
countered a great number of iceberga, and 
at one time, while running in the fog, nar 
rowly escaped destruction from one of them. 

A passenger by the America reports see- 
ing a steamer supposed to be the Pacific, 
steering East. The Captain of thc Ameri- 
ca, however, makes no mention of it. 

In the British Parliament Roebuck ad- 
vocated the American demand for the recall 
of Mr. Crampton, declaring the pretended 
apology in regard to thc enlistment diffi- 
culty a government delusion. Palmerston 
replied lo the member in a fierce speech. 

The Times says, England will not sur- 
render the smallest of her right, and will to- 
tally disregard the American clamor. 

A great conflagration has taken place at 
Rangoon, in India, attended with heavy loss 
of property. Damages estimated at two 
hundred pounds sterling. 

Notice has been given in Parliament that 
a new loan, supposed to be a hundred 
million dollars, will be required. 

Sardinia has voted a loan of thirty mil- 
lion dollars. 

It is rumored that France and Austria 
have arrived at an understanding in regard 
to the fifth point, in order to vote England 
if she attempts the disarming of the Eas- 
tern coast of the Black Sea a sine qua non. 
Appearances already indicate very serious 
differences in the approaching Peace Con- 
ference. 

The Duch have concluded an important 
treaty with Japan, securing privileges de- 
nied the United States. 

The Russian* attempted to surprise the 
Allies in the Crimea on the 29th inst.. but 
were defeated. 



—Both houses are engaged in 
discussing our affairs with England. The 
latest advices are rather in favor of peace 
with England. We are assured that there is 
nothing in the government's dispatches by 
the last arrival to diminish the hope that our 
difference with great Britain may be pacifi- 
cally arranged. The President's message 
asking §3,000,000 "to increase the military 
efficiency of the country," was under dis- 
cussion in the House of Representatives 
on the 27th, and General Quitman (shair- 
man of the committee on Military Affairs) 
said there was nothing in that message 
looking to war, although there was a pos- 
sibility if not a probability of it. Mr. 
Faulkner, another prominent Democrat, 
made, in substance, the same declaration. 
In the Senate a bill in accordance with the 
President's request, has been reported.

RESULT OF A REVERIE.

of the jrrare Walter El- \

and Grace'* warm kisses still burned ' 
her lip* ; she returned their farewell j 
with her Mniiing dignitv, and motionless,

tree* hid them from her eyes Gradually ,

deep *.ettle\3 sorrow c|otid< d her voting '

reverie, and sketch for our readers her prr : 



miration an 

her office. 

Walter had'beep delirious for several 
days; hut he lay one afternoon in a quiet 
sleep, from which the doctor thought he 
would awaken in his senses. Laura took 
a book and sat by the side of the bed, to 
be near when he wished lor anything, while 
Moma sat sewing at the window. Walter 
at length slowly opened his eyes and fixed 
them on the fair reader, who.absorbed in her 
book, did not see him. He noted all the 
maiden's beauties ; the rich black hair 
banded smoothly off her high forehead, the 
regular features, clear, dark complexion, 
long jetty eyelashes, that now drooped over 
the large, black eyes ; the tall, noble figure, 
tiny hand and beautifully rounded arm — 
all were perfect. He lay watching her for 
ts. but Moma, finding he was 
bustled up to the bed, and Laura 
withdrew. From that day he grew rapid- 
| ly better, and many happy hour" were 
•pent in that sickroom. Laura read to him, 
1 and long conversations there were between 
i these two— conversations during which 
< the young girl's heart was gradually passing 
into the possession of another. 
; What wonder that Walter fancied him- 
t self in love with the voung girl, who thus 
• devoted her time and talents to his comfort 
, and entertainment ? He found her presence 
\ would convert that sick-room from a prison 
_ into a paradise. (I don't *ay it did so, but 
' he thought it did.) 

; At last, one afternoon, when Moma was 
t preparing his evening repast, he won from 
; the happy blushing girl a promise to ac- 
i corupanv bim home in the spring as his 
, bride. 

When Liura nought h« r room that night, 
; hrr clu-ek was flushed, her eyes sparkled, 
| and her heart throbbed quickly with ex- 
of happiness. Fastening the door, she 
knrli ;ind thanked the Giver of all good for 
flat new joy bestowed upou her. Laura's 
an »-«rnest. thoughtful nature, and all 
emotion, left an indellible impression upon 
loving heart; she was not one to part 
her Isn lightlv. but. onc»: given, it 
be recalled.' 



it to her room again, and she was alone; 
still she moved not. There was a fearful 
strugglejn her mind. •• Must I give him 
up?" she murmured, "she is so light-heart- 
ed, she would get over this. He is mine 
— mine! But he loves me not!" 

Time flew by unheeded by her; she was 
so absorbed in her reverie that the hours 
were as minutes. Ai leugth she turned 
and reentered the house; with tottering 
steps she regained the room; once there, 
she collected all her calmness, wrote and 
folded a note, carried it herself lo Walter's 
room, and then again in her own chamber, 
her task over, she fell without conscious- 
ness on the floor. 

When Walter Elliott returned fnm bM 
ride, he found upon his table the following 
note:— 

•'Grace has told mc all; you are free ! 

Laura."

there, with Laura aud their

They had been one year in their new 
home when Mrs. Danvrr- was ukon dan- 
gerously ill. and the physicians soon pro- 
nounced her case ho|tele«*. 

It was a rlarknit i! r.».»m. in which no 



she was again calm, dign 

cheerful. Walter and Grace never knew 
the struggle and anguish this had cost our 
heroine, and Walter said In himself. " "he 
is too cool to love!" 

Grace returned home with Walter; 
ra staying in the West Indies with her un- 
cle; when he died she still kept the house; 
but some time after she went on a visit io 
Grace. Grace's youngest boy was, alter 
much solicitation, permitted to return with 
Lanra, and Laura— still Laura Graham* — 
lives still in the old house with him. If 
you ask her why she was never married,

"Oh. aunty, how can I do without you!" 
sobbed the child, all her long restrained

-Oh. it I were but older," said Laura,

• You are old enough Laura, to exert a 
great influence over her. She loves you 
fondly and you can by example and affec- 
tion, lead her to good or evil. You are 
serious and thoughtful beyond your years, 
while Grace is lighthearted and gay, but af-

Poor Laura ! you are young enough to 
sttll need a mother's care yourself; but I 
trjst her to you. Remembe'r, she h M on!y

Faithfully did Laura keep »;tr promise 



of health 

Liura. eh!" 

"Nonsense. Grace," replied Laura, "you 
are wild with spirits. How did vou leave 
Mrs. Ellis and Fanny?" 

• •Well — everybody' well," said Grace. 
"But here comes Mr Elliot up the avenue, 
you must introduce me." And bounding 
across the room, the gay beauty smoothed 
her curls, arranged her collar more to her 
satisfaction, and announced her readiness 
to be presented to Walter. » 

The young man gave a start of delighted 
surprise when his eyes fell upon Grace.— 
Her pale blue dress, which was cut so as to 
leave her falling shoulders and round white 
arms bare, set off to the utmost advantage 
her exquisite complexion and golden curl. ; 
her drive, and the excitement of coming 
hame, gave an additional tinge of color to 
her cheeks, and her eyes sparkled with ani- 
mation. Walter bowed gracefully.and they 
were soon engaged in a lively conversation. 
Laura left them together, and went to read 
the papers to ber uncle, tier regular eve- 
ning task. 

So it began, and so evening after evening 
it continued. Laura was obliged to devote 
two or three hour, to her uncle, while 
Gr-,c f and Walter took moonlight walk., 
or . -mversed together in the piazza; or her 
cousin*, clear sweet voice ro.c and fell on 
the night air m songs, while a manly tone 
mingled with the .train, and Grace's guitar

!From Latrobe'a Raml>le 9 in North America.} 

First Steamboat in the West. 

Circumstances gave me the opportunity 
of becoming acquainted with the particulars 
of the very first voyage of a steamer in the 
West. The complete success attending the 
experiments in steam navigation made on 
the Hudson and adjoining waters, previous 
to the year 1809, turned the attention of 
the principal projectors to the idea of its 
application on the western rivers : and in 
the month of April of that year Mr. Roose- 
velt, of New York, pursuant to un arrange- 
ment with Chancellor Livingston and Mr. 
Fulton, visited those rivers, with the pur- 
pose of forming an opinion whether they 
admitted of steam navigation or not. At 
this time two boats, the North River, and 
the Clermont were running on the Hudson. 
Mr. U. surveyed the river, from Pittsburgh 
to New Orleans, and as his report was fa- 
vorable, M was decided to build a bo il at 
the former town. This done under 
his directions, and in the course of 1811, 
the first boat was launched on the waters 
of the Ohio. She was called the "New 
Orleans." and intended to ply between 
Natchez, in the State of MsaaUalppt, and 
the city whose name slo hore. lu Octo- 
ber she left Pittsburgh for her experimental 
voyage. On this occasion no lreighl or 
passengers ware taken, the object being 
merely to bring the boat to her station. Mr. 
R., his young wile and family, Mr. IJaker. 
the engineer. Andrew Jack, the pilot, tad 
six hands, with * few domestics, formed 
her whole burden. There were n<» wood- 
yards at that time, and constant dehiys 
were unavoidable. When, :ts related, Mr. 
R. had gone down the river to reconnoitp-, 
he had discovered two beds of coal, abont 
120 miles below the rapids at Louisville, 
and now took tools to work them, intend- 
ing to load the vessei with the coal, ami to 
employ it a. fuel, instead of constantU de- 
taining the boat while wood ur>« pror ml 
from the banks. 

Late at night no the fourth day alter 
quilting Pittsburgh, they arrived in safety 
at Loui.ville, hav ing been but seventy hours 
descending upwirds of seven hundred miles. 
The novel appearance of the vessel, and 
the fearful rapidity with which it made its 
passage over the broad reaches of the river, 
excited a mixture of terror and surprise 
among many of the settlers on the banks, 
whom the rumor of such an intention had 
never reached ; and it is related that on the 
unexpected arrival of the boat before Louis- 
ville, in the couse of a fine, still, moonlight 
night, the extraordinary sound which filled 
the air as the pent-up steam was permit- 
ted to escape from the. valve, on rounding 
to. produced a general alarm, and multitudes 
in the town rose from their beds to ascer- 
tain the cause. I have heard that the gene- 
ral impression among the good Kentnckians 
was that the comet had fallen into the Ohio; 
but this doe. not rest upon the same foun- 
dation a. the other facta, which I lay be- 
fore you, and which I may at once .ay, I 
had directly from the parties themselves.— 
The small depth of water in the rapid, pre- 
vented the boat from pursuing her voyage 
immediately, and the consequent detention 
of three weeks in the upper part of the Ohio, 
several trips were succesfully made between 
Louisville and Cincinnati. In fine, the 
water, rose, and in the course of the last 
week in November the voyage was resum- 
ed, the depth of water barely admitting their 
passage. 

When they arrived about five milts abeve 
the Yellow Banks, they moored the boat 
opposite to the first vein of coal, which was 
on the Indiana side, and had been purchased j ' erg 
in the interim of the State government. — j » 
The found I large quantity already quar- 
ried lo their hand and conveyed to the 
shore by depredators who had not found 
means to carry it off, and with this they 
commenced loading the boat. While thus 
engaged, our voyagers were accosted in 
great alarm by the squatters ot the neigh- 
borhood, who inquired if they had not 
heard strange noi.es on the river and in 
the wood, in the course of the preceding 
day, and perceive the shores shake — insis- 
ting that they had respeatedly felt tbe earth 
tremble. 

Hitherto nothing extraordinary had been 
perceived. The following day they pur- 
sued theit monotonous voyage in these vast 
■oliludes. The weather was observed to 
be oppressively hot; the air misty, still 
and dull; and though the sun was visible, 
like a glowing ball of copper, his rays hard- 
ly shed more than a mournful twilight on 
the surface of the water. Evening drew 
nigh, and with some indication, of what 
was passing around them became evident. 
And as they sat on the deck, they ever and ' 
anon heard a rushing sound and violent ' 
splash, and saw large portions of the shore . 
tearing away from the Imd and falling into 
the river, It was, as my infurinant said : 
••an awful day ; so still that you could have , 
heard a pin drop ou the deck." They 
spoke little, for every one appeared thuu- j 
derstruck. The comet had disappeared 
about thi. time, which circumstance was 
noticed with awe by the crew. 

The aecond day after leaving the Yellow 
Bank., the sun rose over the forests the 
same dim ball of fire, and the air was thick, 
dull, and oppressive, a. before. The por- 
of thi. terrble natural convul- 
:rea.ed. The pilot, 
alarmed and confused, said he was lost, as 
he found the channel every where altered; 
and where he had hitherto known deep 
water, there lay numberless tree, with their 
root, upward. The trees were seen wav 



from her resiles* slumbers by the jar given ; 
to the furniture and loose article, in the 
cabin, as several times in the cour.e of the 
night the shock of the passing earthquake 
was communicated from the island to the 
bow of the vessel. It was a long night, 
but morning dawned and showed them that 1 ]« K K A ( ! H C H I N A 
they were near the mouth of the Ohio.— 
The shores nnd the channel were now 
equally unrecognizable, for everything seem- 
ed changed. About noon that day they 
reached the small town of New Madrid, on 
the right bank of the Mississippi. Here 
they found the inhabitants in the greatest 
distress and consternation ? part of the po- 
pulation had fled in terror to the higher 
grounds, other prayed to be taken on board, \I :e havt on h 
as the earth was opening in fissures on V* of Dry Pit

Oh ! if in thai ptill hearl you have ruth- 
lessly planted a thorn ; if from that plead- 
ing eye y<>u have carelessly turned away ; 
if your lov ing glance, and kindly word, and 
clasping hand, have come 3ll to late, then 
God forgive you! No frown gather, on 
the marble brow a. you gaze — no scorn

God forgive you! for your feet, too, must 
shrink appalled from death's cold river — 
your faltering tongue asks, "Can this be 
death ?" Your fading eye lingering lovingly 
on the sunny earth; your clammy hand 
yields its last feeble flutter. 

Oh, rapacious grave ! yet another victim 
for thy voiceless keeping ! What ! no words 
of greeting from the household sleeper ?— 
No warm welcome from a sister's loving 
lids ! No ihrob of pleasure from the dpar 
maternal bosom • Silent all ! 

Oh ! if these broken lambs were never
