Our readers will perceive from the cor-
respondence in our present paper that E. A
Palmer has accepted the invitation tendered
him to become a candidate for the vacancy on
the bench of the 7th Judicial District oc-
casioned by the resignation or P. W. Gray.
We feel truly gratified that a gentleman every
way so entirely unexceptionable has consented
to ran for that highly responsible office and
we doubt not but in saying this we but express
the feelings of a large majority of the citizens
of the District
j3JHany of our citizens will be pained to
see the announcement of the sudden death of
Mr. Joscrn Acte of the firm of Ante & Eng-
lish. Mr. A. had been sick but a few days
but a hemorrhage that could not be stopped
soon terminated fatallv. Mr. Auze came to
our city from Mobile some two jears since" 1
and has been engaged in tne cotton factorage
business. He has been suddenly taken from
the midst of many friends in the prime of
lire. His funeral takes place at 4J o'clock r.
X3g We understand that our city is -probably
soon to be favored with a visit from onr
friend Dr. Sha5j of SewOriians who has
established tb&the only 6rtcoojdic Institu-
tional! the So jtlfcrt-and bki Sow verr .kic-

There are doubtless persons in our own
Slate who need the services of a surgeon in af-
flictions of the land alluded to ; end we can
truthfully say that should Dr. Shnppcrt come
over to Galveston they cannot consult one
more capable or benefitting them.
E3J In the late Charleston convention or
the Sorthern States which insisted that the
South -should adopt a "Squatter Sovereign-
ty" -platform there were ten that voted for
Fremont at the last Presidential election viz :
Maine Ser Hamshirc Vermont l'assahsetts
Rhode Island Connecticut Sew York Ohio
Michigan and Wisconsin.
These States cannot give a Democratic elec-
toral vote for President; yet they wanted the
Southern States that could and without whose
aid no Democratic candidate can be elected to
adopt a platform diametrically opposed through
ambiguous interpretation to the South' most
Z3? We stated sometime- since that the dif-
ficulty of making proof of the violation of onr
City Ordinances and State Laws forbidding the
sale of liquors to slaves is such as to render
those laws often nearly nugatory. But it some-
times happens that what we would consider
ample proof it sot so considered by those who
administer the laws. Per instance we have
learnedlhat proof was lately made as follows:
The witness testified that he aaw the negro en-
ter one of those suspicious negro tradingcstob-
luhments having an empty flask in his pocket
He stood by outside of the door beard some
money fall on the counter and soon after the
same negro came out and on examination he
found "he had the very same flask .filled with
whiskey. It was decided by bis Honor that
tbis proof was not sufficient
-. . a
fC D. E. Bishop Jfc Co. or Wilmington
Delaware are sending circulars to this post
office and we presume also to thousands or
other -post offices in the South enclosing a
scheme of Wood Eddy 4 Co.'s Latteries to-
gether with an envelop in which tho parly ad
dressed is directed to enclose the sum or $20
or any other sumproportioned to bis gullibili-
ty. The circular states that it is to be a
"Gmsn All Fuze Lottebt" to be draws on
the 23d of June with the assurance that $29
returned in the envelop will entitle the party
to twenty-six tickets. In order to make more
sure of getting the $20 assurance is given that
if a prize of $1000 is cot drawn another pack-
age of tickets shall be sent for nothing. Upon
a careful estimate or the chances wcbelie?e
it would take about fifty packages like that
named to give the party to be gulled anything
like a fair chance to get bisTnoney back.
DAniKti BcBatuir. A very daring robbery
was perpetrated in our city on the night of
Sunday (May 20) and from tne style in which
the affair was executed It would seem to be the
act of most accomplished burglars. Tho fol-
lowing is a statement of the facts as received
by onr reporter from Mrs. Leonard the lady at
whose house the occurrence took place : Mr.
W. W. Reynolds a gentleman from Mississippi
who had been a few days boarding at the
house was it seemB in the habit of placing bis
money which amounted to about $1500 be
tween tbc mattrasses of his bed for security at
night; which must have become known to the
robbers by some means or other. The bed was
so placed that the bead of the occupant lay
nearthe window; and the presumption is that
a stick with a sponge soaked in chloroform at-
tached was thrust through and held to the
nostras of tho sleeper until he was sufficiently
stupefied to render bis snddden awaking im-
probable. The window was then raised and
the burglar or burglars entered the room and
in order we presume to render assurance or
bis insensibility donblysure proceeded to gar-
TUtt the inmate in most approved fashion after
which the room WSJ .ransacked trunks opened
the bedoverhaaled and the money found and
Mrs. Xeonard'a temporary apartment was
then entered and the thieves were rewarded
by the further spoil of that lady's gold watch
and $40 in cash.
Mr. Reynolds has but a very indistinct recol-
lection of what ooourred in consequence ol the
treatment be received. He certainly recovered
sufficiently to struggle with bis assailants and
fired two shots whieh brought the inmates of
the bouse to the scene; but the birds had flown.
The appartment presents indisputable evidence
of a ntruggle. The affair is hidden in mystery
at present but we hope to be enabled to throw
sese light on it before many days.
Latest advices from Havana
HICHAEDSON & CO.
HoHtoB TrlBlty & Tyler Kallroad.
The Crockett Arena enters into an elaborate
1 practical statement as to the basis for an esti
mate of probable profits on the aoovc enter
prise when consummated.
The editor estimates that the road will run
110 miles from Houston to Crockett via Hunts-
ville. Be estimates the cost at $25000 per
mile or an entire cost to Crockett of $2750-
O00. This estimate is entirely too high ; on
the cash principle tho road cannot cost at the
utmost over $15000 per mile. However tak-
ing the estimate of the Argus be endeavors to
jshow that the Toad will pay eight per cent on
W30000..or a profit amounting lo $220000.
He argues that the road win lata at depots
twenty-five thirty-seven and fifty miles from
Houston the 'SO.OOO bales of cotton raised in
Montgomery county in Polk county west of
the Trinity and in the lower part of Walker
county. In twoyesrs this section will produce
30000 bales whith at 60c. freight per bale
would amount to $18000.
The planters in the Western pari or Folk
county now haul to Lynchburg 60 to 80 miles
distant at $3 H and $5 per bale. They would
iave to haul only fifteen or twenty miles to tho
depot of this railroad.
At Hnntsville will be shipped on this road
the 25000 bales or cotton raised in Walker atid
Mad.son counties eastern part or Grimes mid
dle and western part or Leon and southern
par of Houston County. In two years these
sections will produce 40000 bales of cotton
which at $1 freight per bale will be $10000.
The planters in Madison and in western
and middle Leon county wilt ship at Hunts-
Title because it is nearer than Savisota
and the freights will be 75c. less per bale. "To
go to tho Central road at a depot above Savi-
sola would be to shorten the distance but lit-
tle; while the freights would be from $1 50 to
$2 00 per bale high r than from Huntsville.
Tho half-way pronnd between Xarisota and
Hnntsville is five miles within the Grimes
county line and if the quality of the roads be
considered ten miles. Tbis consideration and
thetSc; per bale saved on the freight would at-
tract all the freights from the northern and
western parts of Grimes."
The cotton raised in Houston Anderson
Henderson Smith Cherokee Nacogdoches
the northern half of Angelina and Trinity and
the eastern part of Leon and Freestone counties
which sections now raise 60000 baits and in
three years will raise 100000 bales will ship
at Crockett and intermediate stations. This
at 1 65 per bale will produce 165000.
The planters in western Leon and Freestone
will ship at Crockett because it is nearer to
tbem than is any point on the Central Road.
"Pairfield in the centre or Frees tone county ;
equidistant from Alta Springs and C" "
while the freight from the latter plac i
be$l 75 per bale less than from th i0"
which will -pay for hauling forly miles.
"The estimated increase in the prodi
cotton within the two or three years
to construct the road may be thougu
great" says the Argus "but the examples
along the route and direction or the Central
Road will sustain it Facilities for transporta-
tion from tWs section would increase the pro-
duction or cotton to an almost incredible ex-
tent So also of wheat in the counties imme-
diately to the north.
"The Central Road will not reduce its rates
or freight to compete with this road because
the entire custom of the counties they would
gain by such reduction wonld not remunerate
the loss on the freight it would obtain at pres-
ent prices.. Besides because or the crooked
course of the first seventy miles of that road
it could not fairly compete with a straight
The total down freights on this road on the
single article of cotton wonld thus amount to
f 223000 which is more than a return of eight
per cent on the capital invested. "But." says
the Argus "the experience of every Southern
railroad will sustain ns in asserting that the
freights on cotton do not exceed one third the
total receipts of any road in the State Then

Tjuuxo thevessbs. On the first of June
prox. soma thousands of Assistant Marshals
will- commence the work of taking the census
throughout all the Stales and territories of this
Union nnd the law requires the work-lo be
completed by the 1st of August Tho Assist-
.ant Marshals are appointed by the U. S. Mar
shals in each Federal Judicial District from
whom they receive their instructions and to
wbom they must each mako two returns by the
15th of September depositing the original with
he County Clerk. "The subdivisionor country
given to each Assistant is prescribed by tbc
Marshal and may embrace one or more coun-
ties or even a portion or a county according
to circumstances. These Assistant Marshals
arc required lo visit every family or domicil in
the country proceeding in regular order from
one to another. They are required to obtain
from the heads of families or in their absence
some members thcroof that large variety or
statistical information which is the object of
taking the census and for this purpose they
are compelled lo ask many questions the ans-
wers to which will often be attended with some
trouble to our citizens and may sometimes re-
fer to matters of a private character whieh
tbey will be unwilling to communicate. Rnt
it is made the duty or tho census takers to ob-
tain the information for general purposes and
not to allow it to be used in connection with
tbc names of individuals for the gratification
or mere idle curiosity or of personal prejudice
or rival interest It is therefore made the duty
or all to answer as correctly as possible all the
inquiries made or them by the Assistant Mar-
shals in the discharge of their duties and any
refusal to do so is on pain of a fine of thirty dol-
lars which may at once be recovered by an ac-
tion or debt
The utmost dispatch is enjoined upon all
assistant Marshals' ns delay by any 0c
in making bis first return to the M .n
the District must necessarily delay t ji
or the whole District to the Dcp
or the Interior in Washington; and
the sooner tbey make the first retun..
sooner will they receive their compensation
one-half of -which is to be paid by the Mar-
shal on the recipt of the first return. Any de-
lay of both returns beyon4 the 15th of Septem-
ber subjects tho Assistants to certain fines and
The necessity for the utmost dispatch is ap-
parent when it is remembered that upon the
completion of this census depends the appor-
tionment of representation to each State by the
next Congress and many other matters of
great importance to the welfare of the coun-
try. The neglect or delay of a single Assistant
Marshal mnst involve a delay in the census of
the whole State from which the State itself
will be the chief snfferer. We therefore hopo
our citizens will expedite the labors of tho cen-
sus takers all they can as in fact tho law
makeaittheir dqly lo do soby answering their
inquiries without delay.
Look out for Tkikves. It may not be amiss
to warn the community that there are in onr
midst strangers whoso sojourn among us is
likely o prove anything rather than beneficial
to the moral health of onr city. Our candid
opinion is that we have at this moment in Gal-
veston a band of desperate and needy adven-
turers from different parts of the world who
will hesitate at no crime however outrageous.
in order to supply their wants and replenish
their exhausted purses; as witness the burg-
laries and street robberies lately reported in
our local colnmns. Within the past eight days
there have been more instances or crime devel-
oped in this city than foryears previous and
if we are not more explicit in our warnings it
is because there is a watch set for the suspect-
ed characters and more pointed allusions
would only servo to-put them on their guard
and enable them lo evads the detection which
we trust awaits tbem. We can say with pride
that there is not in the whole Union a city or
equal size and population where the statistics
or crime present such small proportion as in
our beautiTuI Island City. And as in tho pres-
ent instance it is always found that when
startling crimes hare been committed there

ing seconds" while a little further on ho says
Ucenan ran after the fight was over some dis-
tance "like a decr.Jcanini: two hedges." on
bis wayTolhc cars lo show how fresh he still
was: That a man who could not bee should
afterwards run like a deer and leap orcr two
hedges is a physical phenomenon not easily
explained or understood.
By he rules of the Prize Ring where a con-
test of tbis kind being interrupted is not re-
newed and completed within thp following
week the contestant who is not ready or able
to appear no matter on what groundi loses.
Sayers could not appear ; his surgeons certified
that bis right arm which had suffered so se-
verely from Heenan's sledge hammer blows
could not be used for two months; yet Mr.
Dowling refused to follow out the rule and
award Hecnan the prize. The question fairly
rises as Hcenan himself suggests whether tho
refereo would have been so indulgent bad he
and not Sayers been so disabled.
The fact is all the other accounts Enclish
American of this exhibition of combined
in brutality endurance skill and conr-
lite in the opinion that Sayers wasovor-

other strong men wonld have undoubtedly
done. He was contending with a mrji ten years
joungcr than himself a giant in size and form
or prodigious power and endurance trained
up to bis own height of pugilistic skill by thor-
ough masters of the art inspired by every
feeling of pride hope and nationality to take
him through this severe trial. Sayers was
knocked down twenty-seven times tbo tre-
mendous force or the blows several times send-
ing him clear oil his feet He was thrown thir-
teen times. He received sixty-eight terrible
blows one rendering his right arm completely
useless. Hccnan was not knocked down once;
be was thrown but once; he received but nine-
teen blows several of lhei very severe and
sufficient to have terminated the contest speed-
ily with a man of less giant size weight and
determination. lie would undoubtedly have

Oregon Gold Mine and TeiarjH.
Tbo latest news from Jacksonville Oregon
arc lo the effect that the newly discovered gold
mines Ihere continue to produce very rich and
abundant retains for the miners' labors.
Amang'thosejvho had settled for farming pur-
posed in the neighborhood beforo tbo gold was
discovered aro icveral Tcxans who appear
from what we can learn fom private letters
from tho spot to be working together nnd like-
ly to make a handsome thing of it
One ofthe claims on Ro"guo?River and sup-
posed to be very rich is worked by Capt. Theo-
dore D. Mallby a gallant Texan and Mier pris-
oner and experienced California miner Col.
Kinney MajorBruce Mr. Fisher Mr. ArtzMr.
Joseph Bledsoe (a worthy gentleman who emi-
grated from Texas for Oregon by the overland
route over a year ago with his family) Relf
Bledsoe Matt Bledsoe and Howard Blcdjoc.
They proposed turning the river from its bed
for a distance or a mile and a half. Alcttcr
before ns says :
" The estimated cost o f Inrnlns l rir l $8000.
Portions of the river bed arc known to be rich In the
golden fleece. At a low stage of water last summer
miners waded Into the river where there were three
feet of water and tbey made six and eight dollars a
day. Mr. Fisher built a small trios dam last Jura-
mer; and In two weeks with three men to help him1
took out $1500. Our claim Is opposite to Cold 11111'
and about Ihreofourtlt) of vL.mD from the " lead"
wheie tbey are tutting ont gold by vie bushel. Think
of quartz rock paying 130000 to the ton. I have teen
this myself. You are aware that in California $10 to
$200 a ton Is considered a satisfactory yield for

not been foend at any point north of t as yet I
have prospected on the line for about twelve mile.
" I am now encamped on oar claim in a tent. To-
morrow March 19th wo commence work putting up
a bouse. We think we'll be able to have the lircr
tamed by the 1st July next and we will then bare
five months' steady work In the river bed. We have
put in a crop on It 'i place which Is about Ave
miles from here and have planted a garden; so
we'll not suffer for vegetables at any rate. Two of
our party hate gone to Jacksonville for their fami-
lies ; and we whose families are far away will work
all the more diligently to be enabled either to join
our dear ones or bring them to this beautiful fertile
country and temperate clime."
Xd3 Tho S. O. Crescent a paper thai has
advocated the claims of Mr. Douglas for the
Presidency has tho candor to admit somt
truths in regard to his objectionable opinion
on slavery. We copy the following extract
Irom that paper :
In his canvass with Douglas Lincoln look some
extremely radical positions while In other reipectf
he repudiated the accepted doctrines of the Dlacl
Republican party. As instances of the latter he de-
clared that a slaveholder was fully entitled under thr
Constitution to the recovery of Ms f ngltlFe alare
and tbat. If a member of Congress he ou!d vott
for the admission or a slave State lata he Union II
sallsSed that slavery was fairly Introduced and war
acceptable to the people. On the other hand how-
ever he went fully as far as Seward in propoundlnc
the doctrine of the "Irrepressible conflict" and din
not hesitate to declare that In his opinion the rela-
tions of slavery and "freedom" were Incompatible Ir
the cane government and one or the other mus
eventually dlstppear and he did not leave ui ii
doubt as to which one he thought It would be oi
ought to be.
So it seems Mr. Douglas goes "fully as far a
Mr. Seward" in propounding the doctrinejof the
"irrepressible conflict" It is easily demon
stratcd as we have often said that Douglas'
doctrine is by far more effectual practically
in excluding slavery from the territories thanf
Congressional intervention. Already slavery
has been excluded from California and ivapj '
by Douglas' doctrine of making the po-
vote completely sovereign over the quest r -We
believe there is not an instance to I" '-.;
wherein Congressional intervention

rapport at the) North. And yet strange- ""
he hasjdsoeomc zealous supporters' evenTn"
EST" Gen. T. 3ST. Waul arrived in our city
yesterday morning being on his way to the
North where he will probably spend most of the
summer. Wo are glad to learn from him tbat
tho course pursued by our delegates to the
Charleston convention met not only with the
hearty approval of the Democratic parly ol
Gonzales but also of those wbouhaenot here
tofore acted with tbat party: who aro in a fen
days to hold a public meeting in JBonzales ex-
pressly for the purpose of declaring their en
dorsement of our delegates. Indeed we be-
lieve there are many throughout the State who
IJicrugh 'heretofore belonging to tho opposition
will.tako tbe'same course. Tbo truths is one
of the strongest objections heretofore urged
against tho Democracy and Democratic con-
vention has been their readiness at all times to
surrenderor ignore the rights ofthe South
whenever the great contest for the Presidency
arrives for tho purpose of securing a party
triumph and dividing the spoils of victory
among the party leaders. Gen. Houston him-
self has urged this as among thc strong objee
tions to conventions. This is we believe the
first time for many years when Southern dele-
gates to ourNational conventions have adhered
firmly and uncompromisingly to principle re-
gardless of consequences and insisted upon a
distinct recognition of the rights of the South.
Tbc objection to platforms urged by General
Houston namely their covert and designed
ambiguity and convenient susceptibility of
contradictory constructions to all men of all
political complexions was tho very objection
made by our delegates to the minority platform
adopted by tbo convention.
JS Tbo N. O. Crescent notices the preva-
lence of official frauds at the present day.
Within tho past week or two remarks that
paper it has been difficult to keep the run of
peculations committed by members of Con-
gress or so alleged to be ; also by postmasters
secretaries of public companies and fiduciaries
generally. It Is suggested that there are two
modes by which this evil may be checked so
far as public officers are concerned one is to
reduce the income of the treasury and tho ex
penditures in proportion so that there may be
no margin to peculate upon; and the other is to
put honest men in office. We think the former
will be the most effectual means of securing tbc
latter; for if there is nothing left to tempt to
frauds upon the treasury without encroachine
upon the necessary means for the support ol
Government then it will become the interest of
all salaried officers contractors ta to detect
and expose the frauds by which the treasury
may be so depleted that they themselves can-
not receive their pay. A surplus in the treasu-
ry is almost a direct invitation to dishonest
men to seek lo hare a hand in it. We think
the Crescent remarks very justly that but a
few years ago the Government was admin isterd
by Mr. Fillmore without complainton forty mil-
lions and now twice that amount seems scarce-
ly sufficient and it js but a feff months since
many of our mails were suspended in conse-
quence of there being no money in the treasu-
ry to pay mail contractors. We believe there
can be found no better criterion" for indicating
the increasing corruption at ihe Federal bead
than this rapidly increasing expenditure of

some account of tho proceedings of the Charles-
ton Conyention and tho causer that led to tho
secession or tho delegates from eight cotton
States arose and in a speech or near an hour
gave a.clear and satisfactory review of all the
important matters under discussion in that
convention a very brier outline or wnicn nas
been kindly furnished us by Mr. Weeks who
however had no means of making a fall re-
port Mr. Bryan said:
Mr. chairman and fellow citliens 1 came here to
night In response to the call upon the clUsens of Gal-
veston Irrespective of party to meet this evening to
approve the course pursued by the Democratic Dele-
gates of Texas at Charleston. It would have been
exceedingly gratifying lo do this evening to have
net all the Democracy of the county of Ualrestoo
and given an account as one of the delegates from
the State of Texas of the action ofthe delegation
at that convention. A voles: It Is not too late
I shall briefly state to thls"meetlng what was done
tbero and upon what reasons the delegates from
Teias withdrew from that convention I will be par
doned for saylgg so far as I am personally concerned
Ik Is (o me a matter or little moment Individually
whether the acts of those delegates are sustained or
not for.1 neither seek office nor have I acted In re-
gard to selt But when I have tatlsded myself la a
representative capacity what my duty Is I discharge
that duty and I am wining to meet the emergency.
(Applause). There Is a grel principle Jnvjlred In
this Issue fellow citizens whMiij ijruUrepirty; a
Srlcciplewhlch lit at the featStojiorf stfiixtfm
le Southern States. Tcrels a principle Involved
too that affects you as citizens of Galveston most
vitally. Let your sympathies go out to this vast re-
gion behind you cultivated as It Is now and must be
In all future time by slaveholders and those who feel
and set with tbem. Your past your present and
your future prosperity depends upon the tillers of the
solL Whit would be the fate of Galveston If the
cotton bale and the sugar hogshead were to cease to
seek your wharves t You have a deep ample and
safe roadstead where the Ureal Eastern ana a won-
sand inch vessels can float In security I Iilud tbem
by the ties or affection to you by your lympalblcs
going oat to those who lire without the towns whose
alt Is Involved In the preservation of society as It ex-
ists In this State as It exists In the Southern States
and they will swarm your wharfs and streets with
these great staples. Then your city In the future
may have no limits. But If you turn a cold ear to
the cries of those whose Interests are your interest)
the time Is not far distant when Iron bauds may con-
nect them with a sister city which has Just spoken
upon this subject with enthusiasm which has has come
up to the position and the cilsls; and Instead of oar
cotton bales coming here they may be carried past
you by the iron horse and finds lodgment elsewhere.
The question fcllow-cltixenj which comes before you
and the people of Texas to consider Is whether the
slaveholder shall have protection In this government?
Wtlh these prefatory remarks I will speak of tho
convention and briefly state to you what your dele-
gates did saw and beard at Charleston. When
ther arrlrcd there they found that nearly all the
Vorthern States were acting and stood as a unit.
They came there for the accomplishment of one ob-
ject. They were drilled and disciplined as thoronfch-
ly as a body of regular soldiers. They were led by
Stewart of Michigan formerly a Senator and an
tble tactician ; by Richardson of Illinois for many
years a member of Congress ; by Fugh of Ohio (a
nau for whom I entertain a high personal respect)
ho Is now in the'Senate; lo say nothing of ether
eaders of as much experience and ability. Tbey
ere disciplined: they met for one object for the
purpose of nominating Mr. Douglas and adopting
their squatter sovereignty piatrorm. ine ueiegates
of the South met there for the assertion of jtttnc'pla ;
-hey bad no choice of men. Any man who was
sound lu principle whether he came from the North
or whether ha came from the South they said they
would accept If a proper platform was r'dopted.
They wanted a platform In accordance with the prin-
ciples of the party. They said to the Northern dele-
gatesthe Democratic party fas born with the Con-
UuUoa and can only Ure with the Conslltu'lon :
ire to us a platform In conformity with the princi-
ples of the Constitution and we are with you ; but If
vou divide upon principle the Democratic party will
oe as other parties a party of the day on'y. Other
parties have lived and died died because they were
iot la conformity with constitutional principles the
tame Zl -fean-1 at the South. We want- a

.lorf ' i ; a platform such that the

man to run as a candidate come from what section
he may. Thev said : "i e can't do It : we shall not
do It. We will give you the candidate and you must
take our platform. " inetr arrogance exaction ana
dictation there whole conduct was such as to fill the
mind of those who represented tbe Southern States
with gloom and sorrowful Indignation. But for tbe
sake of the party for the sake ofnn.oD. they labored
jver a week to bring about harmony. A Committee
on Platform was appointed one from each State:
resolutions were referred to that committee; the com
mittee labored toree days and tureo nigotj.anainaua
a majority and a minority report. Themajorlty re-
port was presented by every Southern State with the
noble States of California and Oregon ; and with the
other States opposed. A majority of the States
they were all Democratic Slates. And If the platform
recommended by them had been adopted every one
of the seventeen States that recommended it would
have voted fcr the candidate of the party. Thoso
that opposed It every one of them. In a Presidential
contest were at least doubtful and some of them
Black Republican. Most or them there was no hope
for; and some of them never did cast a Democratic
vote and never would. Then this anomaly was
presented this spectacle ot the Democratic States
united in favbv of it platform opposed by those States
which were doubtful and the majority of which it
was known conld not cast a Democratic rote and the
latter insisting upon dictating the piatrorm and put-
ting upon it a candidate. Where was the justice
where the right In this proceeding? Sappose your
delegates had consented to this thing. You have
blamed Southern men time and again for not advo-
cating correct principles and not maintaining them
when presented. You have complained of Southern
representatives time and again that they have
yielded toquestlons when prsssed upon them.
Here was a plain course marked oat for your dele-
gates to pursue. They were to conciliate; they did
conciliate ; they were to propose ; they did propose
modification of their platform without yielding vital
principles. The subject was recommitted by the
South by a vote of one majority. The committee
again divided and reported back a minority plat-
form and seventeen States reported the platform
which you have just heard read by your chairman.
The same course was then taken again. They sub-
stituted the minority for the majority report and
simply recognized the Cincinnati platform.
In this position of affairs as one of the delegates
from Texas Iwentto Senator Fugh of Ohio one of
the leaders of thc opposition and begged of him to
pause for a moment and see if something s:ould not
be done to save the party. His reply was I am
powerless ; I can do nothing. When we round tbat
tney were uetermmea to force upon us a platform
upon wmcb we could not stand with sauatter sover
eignty a doctrine thai the opposition In qur State
had denounced as well as the Democratic party: a
platlorm that we knew would causa our destruction
at home If we accepted It then and then only (exer-
cising a right which belonged to us as delegates re-
presenting an Intelligent thinking and free constitu-
ency) we respectfully retired fri-m the convention
ricr Alabama Mississippi South Carolina and
Florida bad retired. (Applause.) Texas was then
followed by Arkansas Georgia and part of Dela-
ware. We did not retire la a threatcnlcg or bluster-
ing manner. We withdrew with the hope that upon
a sober second thought on their part they would do
osiustlce. In order to keen toicether. we formed a
temporary organization and adopted tbe platform of
tne majority oitne states wttn a view or a waiting
be action of the party In another cqnrcntlon. We
hope they will adopt a platfqrmol principle which
rill enable us to hiracinUe. ihe Southern States
hat remained In the convention after those ofthe
cotton States had retired did so In the expectation
that the delegates from the North would be convinced
of their injustice and give us a platform whtchwonld
enable us to act with them. Tbey said tneyre ..taed
for that object and for that alone to brlng'aboat
ualon In tbe party. They consulted In order to in-
troduce their ultimatum which they said was op-
posed to squatter sovereignty and the convention
adjourned to Baltimore upon that ultimatum; what
will be their action at Baltimore we cannot now tell.
It la understood that if that uttiqatum is rejected
when they meet at Baltimore all the Southern States
wllLretlre. and we hone will raret-iriy -sl Rich
mond. (Applause) What will he the result we can-
not at this point of Tien yet determine:. but what-
ever it may be I trust and believe that the conven-
tion which wIU meet in Richmond (fit 4 placed la a
position to require action ttU plate before the coun-

that the party true to principle will rally the people

ocracy and In tbe end be victorious lathe Hoase or

To our friends from foreign lands here to-night I
will say a word or two In regard to this doctrine or
squatter sovereignty. The Democralie party has
aid to you -when you are naturalised .you become
citizens; your tights are the rights of Americans;
you are entitled to protection; aad whether It be In
tbe Medlterscean sea or at home on the soli or Am-
erica the flag or tbe Union bears protection to yon
wbereveryou are. We have said that this Is a right;
that every citizen Is entitled to protection. Now
then let me ask you itypu come to a Southern State
and you settle thgre it is your interest and your
pleasure to purchase negroes ; you haye a ramlly ;
you wish to emigrate to a new territory to better
your condition by obtaining-lands for your children:
you go there as Americans have gono to the wilds
and made States of 'a vast wilderness; von settle
there with your negro property and yOn are told
you are not entitled to frotectlori for your property.
Sunnose a native la vonr nlace. Is ho not entitled tn
protection for his. property In a territory belonging
i to you all bereft It Is admitted at a State 1 Most
unqucsuuuauij i uuifo to toe native; itisuueto
you j and there honId b no distinction whether it
be frou; the North qr South East or West ror the
territory Is common property. (Applause.)
In this trying moment for the Democracy nothing
can save us but union. And nothing can zava the
Statei ot tbe South but Union on the part of the
South. The aggressions upon slavery have been
continued for years. And ye find those who profess
to be acting In union with us and fl.gh.tlng our battles
at the North now saying that nnless we concede to
them not as much as the Black ReDublieani demand.
but concede that the Territorial Legislatures may
legislate slavery out of the Territories they cannot
as a party live before the people ofthe North That
this principle must be recognized that it must be
conceded to tbem or they are defeated. Now If
this bo their doctrine what is the difference between
them and the Black Republicans J The difference Is
thai the Btack Republican Is open In Ids declara-
tions and advances upon ycu with a bold front;
while the oilier li Insidiously undermining you and
sapping your foundations In the dark. Now If the
party must fall at the North let It fall on principle.
The Democratic party can live and meet defeat. -r
Yon can all remember tbe "log cabin and bard el-
der" campaign when the Democratic party was de-
feated. But It stuck to principle. The glorious eld
party remained where It was before 1840 and It rose
triumphant over that defeat and was again In her
glory and Strength and the country has prospered
ercrtmce ABune;cu we are true to pnccipiti
the same results may follow the Constitution and
the Union mayjje preserved.
Bat It Is said that the delegates should have re-
mained la the Convention. It has been said by some
that tbey should have remained and got a good man
upon that squatter sovereignty platform.
reuow-ciuzenj meWh!gs took twice "good men"
and they died. Suppose we were to abandon prin-
ciples and depend merely upon the election of the
Fresldent and he should die the Democratic party
wonld be dead loov Whenever we resort to such sub-
terfuges for success merely we are worthy of defeat
and should receive It. No. onr mission nn a. narlv it
higher and holler It Is for the malntalnsnce of the
Constitution and this Union as formedbyourfathers
a Constitution of Truth and Justice a Union of
Sovereign and Equal States.
Fellow-citizens I have no fears as to what will be
the wourse of the people of Texas. I know that you
and they will approve the acts of your delegates at
Charleston and the future will establish tho truth
and the right of their position.

Showing how favorably ihe Wheeler c WiUon
Sewing Machine hat been receiced in
the Female Seminaries
Alter a thorough examination of all the different
ainus in use tne wneeler Wilson machines were
adopted into the principle female- seminaries of the
Northern States about one year since as being the
beat family sewicg machine in use and the one most
likely to remain tbe standard for years to come.
The experience cf one year shows the success of
this new brsneh of female education and confirms
the good judgment of tbe selecting committee of
public schools In adopting Wheeler Wilson's sew-
ing machlaes as the standard for utility and for In-
struction f? all female seminaries. The fallowing let-
ters speak jr themselves. They are from the princi-
pals or rour schools all conducted upon entirely dif-
ferent systems; The Domestic and Literary Oollere.
the Normal School the Literary and Scientific Insti-
tute and the Public School. We might multiply ex-
tracts but these Illustrate nearly our entire system
of schools and in them all a high degree of success
in the Instruction of the sewing machine Is indicated.
It has been Introduced alio with gratifying success
Into several Industrial schools where the pupils are
educated to earn a livelihood or perform tbe various
duties of life.
The President of the Elmlra Female College says :
Tbis Institution has introduced this Important
improvement which seems destined to commence a
ne-v era In relieving the burden or women's work
into Its course or domestic Industry which Is one of
the distinguishing features or the college. No young
lady Is expected to graduate who has not learned
practically the use or the sewing machine. The la-
dy matron bas It In charge and gives Instruction In
its use so that It occupies as honorable and nsefnl
a place in the course of education as the electrical
machine the air pump or any portion of the philo-
sophical chemical or mechanical apparatus. By
a thorough trial Wheeler & Wilson's machine has
proved Itself abundantly successful and has shown
that It is especially adapted to the Instruction of be
ginners as well as being unrivaled for the superi-
ority and variety of its work.
Professor W. P. Phelps Principal of the New Jer-
sey Btate Normal School sara :

would say that la many respects tne plan was highly
successful ltbas awakened a deep interest on tbe
parr of our young ladles in the application -pf scles
liuVprhiclpTes to the arts of life. It has opened np
to them a new field for the exercise of their activity
la a most pleasant and most profitable way. It has
tended to popularise labor by making it pleasant
and attractive- Only a very small minority of those
who have received instruction and practice in the use
of tbe machine had ever before worked with one
and th3 exercise has been a great novelty as well as
a great pleasure. One hour dally Is devoted to the
work. Each member of our graduating class Is re-
quired to devote this amount or time to It under the
guidance or a teacher. B-sldes being a greatsource
of Improvement in an educational sense! think it
has popnlarized those labor and life-saving devices
with a class of persona who would otberwlso have
been slow to comprehend and appreciate their
Alan annual public examination or this scbool
held In Trenton a young lady explained the me-
chanical principles of the sewing machine its mode
of operation and Illustrated by diagrams upon tbe
blackboard the various stitches made by searing
macntnes ana expiainea tneir merits ana dements.
Tbo exercise was received with great favor by a large
and intelligent audlen;e.
Professor it M. Pierce the Principal ot the Bul-
gers Female Institute says:
The Wheeler A Wilson sewing machine bas been
introduced into onr institute and the trustees teach-
ers and myself consider it the most valuable and
necessary piece of apparatus In the Institute. I be-
lieve the time is very near when a familiarity with the
principles ana operation or the sewing machine will
be required by parents and teachers In the education
of young ladles.
Professor W. H. Wood Principal of Ward School
No 49 New York city says f
None of the teachers ef the female department be-
ing qualified tq operate successfully I deemed itmy
duty tq laTes'.'gate the mechanism of the Instrument
and render myself able to operate successfully. This
task on account at the remarkable simplicity ot the
machine was soon accomplished while Itsmeehan.
leal operation afforded a pleasure approaching to
fascination. Both teachers and children were so
much interested In i's performance that by the time
appointed forthe examination I was enabled to ex-
hibit the machine upon the stage. Several young
ladles operated with success In presence of the au
dlence the work being passed to tbe company for
inspection -mis perjormance oeing in presence or
the Board of Education the School Officers of the
Ward and a large audience was entirely satisfact-
ory. It gives me pleasure to state another fact connect-
ed with Its use In this school. In consequence of the
facilities afforded by this greatlabor-savtngmachlne
an association was forrqed composed of teachers
and pupils for the purpose of clothing the ragged
and destitute children of the school. While many
willing hands were cutting and "Sting" the Iron
seamstress nromnt and tndefiiif'a.ble. performed Its
task with such rapidity and success that a very con
siderable amount or clothing was made and distrib-
uted. The method adopted for teaching Its use has been
as follows: A few of the most apt and intelligent pu-
pils have received particular attention and tbey In
turn have Instructed others. This plan has op-rated
with tolerable success. As to tbe ultimate success
of tbe plan and the wisdom or Its policy I hare not
the slightest doubt.
Tijb PaasinsrxT aj.d his iioiTons. Several
hundred editors have been making an excursion
over tho Baltimore. & Ohio Kailroad. They
must have had a fine time and no doubt put
in Coventry whoever of their number dared to
talk politics or write specialjcorrespondence.
They took occasion to visit President Buchan-
an in a body. Ho received tbem most affably ;
and in his reply q their congratulatory ad-
dress Bafd :
The duties of the President are severe and inces-
sant. I shall soon retire from them ; and If my suc-
cessor shall be as happy on coming la as I will be tn
going out he will be one of the happiest men in the
world. (Laaghttr.J It is temarkabe. however that
notwithstanding (he tolls qq troubles cr the Presi-
dential oftcc there are plenty or distinguished gen-
tlemen ready enough to come in and representing
all tbe different Urns known to the country. Never
theless I am confident that the prevailing ism will
be the wish or the American people to preserve and
cherish the ConstltoUou at it is and the Union. My
lire in the course or nature cannot be long; but i
should not desire to draw a single breath beyond
the existence or this our beloved Union 1 (Deep
sensation and silence.)
I ana much pleased to ;ej this meeting or so many
or the editorial fraternity. It can scarcely fall to be
salutary1 to yourselves la many respects ; and among
Its beneficial effects It will doubtless tend to relieve
your mutual relations and discussions of that need-
less asperity which has sometimes characterized the
press. While you are free bold and firm In ex-
presstngyour convictions and maintaining your prin-
ciples there is surely no necessity ror acrimonious
assaults upon those tq whom you are opposed. In
connection with this point I am reminded of an anec
dote which perhaps I ought not to relate. Cries of
"Tell It sir 1" "Go oo 1" While I was Minister to
England a distinguished nobleman once said to me :
"Mr. Buchanan If I were to judge frcm your news-
papers I should Infer that tbo different candidates
for the Presidency were the greatest rascals in
America 1" I replied that "it did look so but In re-
ality Itwa onU'aKauwehadot talking about each
other a( election times I" (Laughter and cheers.)
OonPiuiBiBlxurDa. Tho Houston Commer-
cial Express .oi ho 17th inst. says:
To persons who have not gono through our coun-
try for the last three years the change which has ta-
ken place would certainly surprize them. The prai-
rie lands which seven or eight years ago were left
neglected are being cultivated with the greatest suc-
cess and in point or producing excel tbe lands ef
many places la the up-coaqtry which hare hereto-
fore had a better reputation. These same prairie
lands are producing excellent cotton and one hand
can cttltlyato more than he can gather a rare cir-
cumstance In many planting countries. Cultivating
these prairie lands was an experiment five or six
years since but they have proved themselves and
we hope they will be more considered than heretofore
and not be now as then entirely overlooked.

SpEAiu.va Oct. At the Illinois Bepnblican
State Convention John Wentworth a strong
member of tho party and Mayoi or Chicago
mado tho following frank statement as to the
views of the Republicans tonching tho United
States Supreme Court :
In all probability one-half the members ot that
Court will die within the next four years. They are
now too old tube alireand too corrupt lobe Judges
and it we only had a Republican President he would
fill the vacancies with Young Republicans whose
principles would be right on tbe slavery question and
they alone could control that Court and the question
of slavery In the United States tor the nex t onatter
of A century.
Political. The Washington correspondent
of the Sew Orleans Cresent says :
Gov Wise has returned to Virginia. I learn pos-
itively that he Is In favor of the late secession
movement at Charleston and will contrlbute.evcry
euort ne can to sustain it ana to urge tne jticnmosu
Convention to take decided measures In the present
emergency. His influence In this connection Is like
ly to be very considerable.
Politicians bere are calculating the effect of Mr.
Bell's nomination upon the vote of some of the
more doubtful of the Northern States. Looking to
the probable effect of Mr. Bell's Domination In this
quarter they are disposed to think tbat It will much
more seriously affect the chances of the Republicans
than those of the Democrats and that It will b: like-
ly to draw off at least caoagn votes to avert the pos-
sibility or a Black Republican victory in New Jer-
sey Pennsylvania and Indiana. Its effect .upon the
vote of Southern States Is problematical and Is
thought to depend la a great measure upon conse-
quences which may transpire Jiereafter at Richmond
uu at uaiumore. at is generally agreeu nowever
that a much stronger bid might have been made for
the Southern vote by the nomination of some other
Independent" ticket than that 41 Bell and Everett
which Is already very much prejudiced by belngrep-
resented as a partisan nomination the old Wh'gs
themselves as the resurrection of their party refer-
ring to the convention as a Whig Convention and
the candidate as a Whig candidate. K these repre-
sentations sfaoulis prevail the nomination Is lively
to lost much or Its force In the Sooth.
