A. S. CAMP & CO.
The Constitutional Union men of Nashville
are setting their brethren throughout the
country a glorious example. They have or
ganized a club in each Ward, with the inten
tion of holding meetings weekly, and enroll
ing the names of all who desire, through
their example and influence, to contribute
something towards the success of the cause,
and the perpetuation of the institutions un
der which tbey live and which have been the
source of untold blessings. What has been
done in the city, onght also to tie doue in the
coanty. Every civil district therein should
be organized as speedily as possible. But the
work should not be confined to Nashville and
Davidson county. Not one county or civil
district in the State should be permitted to
languish for want of effective organization.
There is no telling how much can be achiev
ed by thorough organization how much en
thusiasm ftnrl nr.tivitv run rw arnu.fHl hv mr-
eistent systematic effort. There never was a
time when this sort of effort promised more
benefits. The disruption of the democratic
party, the imminent danger of the election
of a Republican to the Presidency, an event
the happening of which has been declared by
several Soathern States in solemn resolves of
their Legislatures to be sufficient cause for
resistance and secession, the impossibility of
preventing this result by the support of
either of the sectional candidates re
presenting the democratic factions, are
having the effect of causing the people to
reflect seriously upon the proper means of
averting the dangers which are impending
over the country. The popular mind and
the popular heart, are open to approach.
Party ties no longer close the avenues to
reason. In this state of things there is much
to encourage the true patriot, and to stimu
late him io untiring efforts to advance the
public weal. Not a moment's time should
be lost in taking advantage of the propitious
season which is opening. Second only in
importance to efficient, organized, personal
efforts is the dissemination of printed docu
ments. The two instrumentalities happily
harmonize. Whilst the one opens the mind,
the other rivets conviction upon it. The
more prominent men everywhere read the
party organs regularly ; bat there are thous
ands who never see them, and are only to be
reached by the campaign paper or the pam
phlet. These should be freely distributed
wherever any good result can be attained.
Bat every one who is able to take the reg
ular newspaper party organs, and who has
not subscribed for them, in an emergency like
the present, ought not to neglect that duty,
if he intends to keep posted upon the issues
of the day, so as to strike intelligently and
effectually whenever be would strike a blow
for the cause he has espoused. Now is the
time, when the issues are being made up, to
enroll yoor names ia the "grand army' of
newspaper subscribers, and to prepare tor
the day of battle. On our part we offer
you the Patriot. We shall be delighted to
entend our acquaintance, and to hold famil
iar intercourse with thousands of others in
addition to those already en our lists. We
have drawn the sword and thrown away the
scabbard; and shall do our whole duty in
any event. Until the battle is fought and
won we shall know no test. No effort shall
be spared to contribute to the achievement
of a glorious victory.
A Nrw Union Paper. Messrs. Henrt and
Tatlob have issued a propectus for a new
paper to be published at Lexington, Tenn.,
under the name of the Lexington Dispatch.
They say : In the present political contest
we will be the zealous supporters and enthu
siastic advocates of the claims of the Hon.
John Bell, of Tennessee, and Edward Ever
ett, of MassacbaseUs. to the positions of
President and Vice President of the United
1 We expect to oppose to the bitter end, dis
union, fanaticism and Yauceyism at the
South, and abolitionism, Helperism and Se
wardism at the North."
We wish tbem as well as the cause which
they so heartily espouse the amplest success.
If industry and ability will secure that suc
cess on their part they will certainly achieve
Twenty years ago, when Southern ultras
were making use of the slavery question to
break up the whig party, Mr. Bell told
tbem that they would attain a point where
they would be compelled to tubmit dishonorably
or to dissolve the Union. The question of pro
tection is leading them now, ia a direct line,
to that point. Let Congress reject the de
mand, as it will, as constituted now, and
what then Gentlemen, yon must submit to
your everlasting disgrace, or dissolve the
Union. Upon which horn of the dilemma
will joa bang ? Better be making a choice.
Hon. A. IT. Stephens.
The Aururta (Ga.) Cbnstitutionalitt of the
17th inst, says
This eminent statesman and pure patriot
reached our city on Sunday afternoon, to at
t-nd the session of the Superior court yester
day; but whicb, however, was adjourned.
OTer until the fifth Monday in October.
Mr. Stephens has much improved in health
and onr citizens generally were clad to
know it. and to take by the hand one who
commands so large a share of their esteem
Mr. Stephens is decidedly in favor of the
election of Donglas and Johnson, but ex
presses toe tear that our Government is on
the verse of a revolution. He sees evil and
only evil, to result from the present anomal
ous condition ol the country, and expresses
surprise mat tne people appear to be so in
different to the rapid progress they are mat
ing to a dissolution of the Union, and the
countless evils which will follow.
This is the time for patriots to speak and
act, and lor the people to be told of the lm
minent dangers to which they are exposed
e feel satisfied, at least hopeful, that the
times will bring forth eloquence, genius and
talent, o instruct, and that the country will
be aroused to a full appreciation of their
dangers, which environ the best form of
Government, ever devbed and formed, by
the wisdom of man.
The preservation of our glorious Union
shouid be the theme of conversation around
our hearth-scenes, and in all places, and at
all times, it should eneaze our warmest
sympathies and most devoted efforts.
Mr. Stephens has had abundant oppor
tunity to learn, from association, the feel
ings and intentions of the Southern Seces
sion wins of the democratic party: and we
are sure lie does not over-estimate the
dangers which threaten lue stability of our
institutions. Mr. Breckinridge recognized
these dangers when he expressed his
fears in his Frankfort sneech last De
cember. The secession wing of the
party have succeeded in committing
several States to the policy of with
drawing from the Union iu the event ol
the election of a Republican to the Presi
dency, and the probability of that event is
not less imminent now than when he spoke.
It is, indeed, more imminent. Ihe demo
cratic parly has since been cusrnptcu, ana
has two sets of candidates in the field, with
a prospect of so dividing the North as to give
every State in that section of the Union to
Lincoln. Unless the masses discard both fac
tions, and rally around the National Union
ticket, as we hope and trust they will the
Republican ticket can scarcely be beaten.
And if it succeed, will not the fears of Mr.
Stephens and Mr. Breckinridge be realized?
Will South Carolina, will Alabama, will Mis
sissippi, submit to the inauguration of a re
publican after in the most solemn manner
pledging themselves to resistance? He who
believes they will, does not appreciate the
spirit and determination of the leaders in
those States who have controlled and given
voice to public sentiment. They arc high
toned, chivalrous, courageous, and ambitious.
They religiously believe that tne boutn
would be more prosperous, and her people
happier out of the Uuion than in it. And
this belief has for many years past, especially
since the agitations of 1850, which resulted In
the compromise, been gradually spreading
until it has been embraced by thousands who
at one time regarded the Union as the ark of
the Soutli's safety. It is weak and foolish to
assume that with so much to back them, the
secession leaders will dishonorably submit
and make no attempt to carry into effect
their pledges. Tlity will make tlie attempt ! We
feel well assured of this. And what if they
succeed in inducing one or more of the States
to assume an attitude of hostility to the gen
eral government, and to secede? What will
be the effect? Could the general government,
in the possession of a republican administra
tion, coerce them into retracing their steps .
Would not the first hostile movement, looking
to coercion, by force of arms, be the signal for
such a demonstration of sympathy in other
Southen States, as would lead the seceding
States to firm and determined resistance at
all hazards. Is there a Southern heart
which could, without emotion, witness such
a conflict? When Gen. Jackson, desiring to
prevent a compromise in 1832, sent a mes
senger to Judge White, intimating his with
that Mr. Clatton should not be placed on
the committee to consider the matters in
controversy between South Carolina and the
General Government, it is reported that the
Judge replied, "You are to late Mr. Ci-ay-ton
has already been appointed, and if he
were not, he should be. I voted for the
force bill, but I do not intend to see my
brethren driven into submission." No one
could accuse Judge Wuite of disunionism, or
of connivance with secessionism, but his re
ply evinced the spirit of the Southron, and
thaCis the spirit which would, after the act,
make secession formidable, if not uncon
querable. Let the conflict but once begin,
and, sooner or later the whole South would
become involved and revolutionized.
This is the danger which the sagacious mind
of Mr. Stephens perceives aud fears. It is the
duty of all who love the South, and the
Uuion, who prefer the pleasures of peace to
the troubles of war, to endeavor to avert
the danger, and to restore the sections to
harmony. Thi3 cannot be done by pander
ing to sectional feelings, by drawing the
South into the support of & candidate for
the Presidency upon a platform which drives
the North from him. It must be done by
other means by a union of all the elements
of conservatism upon a ticket which can be
supported North and South, and defeat the
enemies of our institutions.
jE2T The Louisville Democrat says that
Mr. Breckinridge "denouueed the Seceders
at Charleston, and pledged himself to can
vaes the State for Douglas if he was nomi
na'ed." Mr. Breckinridge is just about as
lidely to redeem that pledge, as he is to be
elected President of the United States.

The New York World, which advocate?,
we believe, the election of Messrs. Lincoln
and Hamlin, institutes in a recent number a
brief comparison between the avowed prin
ciples of the Republican and Democratic par
ties, for the purpose of showing that there is
no such broad difference between their
" platforms " as a stranger might suppose.
To this effect that journal observes as fol
lows : " ' " - -
" The only real patent issues' set forth in
these party fabrics, directly affirmed in the
one and as directly denied in the other, is the
power of Congress to exclude slavery from
the Territories; and, in fact, that issue, as pre
sented, amounts to nothing more than an abstraction.
inasmuch as the Republican platform, though
holding forth the power, does not present
any claim for the actual practical exercise of
that power, contenting itself with the gener
ality that the power shall be used wherever
such legislation is necessary. It never was used
nor even attempted to be used in the case of
Kansas, and it ts not pretended that any other
case ts ukely to arise requiring it."
If the issue presented by the Republican
parly under this head is confessed to be noth
ing more than an " abstraction," it is only
just to say that the antagonist issue joined
with it by the " Breckinridge Democracy" is
equally speculative in the estimation of their
chosen standard-bearer. We know of noth
ing which has occurred to change the atti
tude of the "Territorial question" within the
last five or six months, considered as one of
practical concern and not of partisan debate,
Tbejiews entertained npon the subject by
Mr. iiRECKiNRiDGE previous to nis nomina
tion, and as announced in bis well-known
speech delivered at Frankfort, Kentucky,
before the members of the Legislature of
that State, may therefore be justly deemed
the same now as tbey were when first uttered
on the Zlst of December last. e quote
from that speech as follows:
"In common with many public men, I hold
that the existing machinery of our Govern
ment is adequate to execute the decisions of
toe judicial tribunals; but, sbonld the time
ever arrive when a decision of a competent
court on a question of private right is likely
to tail tor want ot adequate remedies to ex
ecute it. those remedies, executive and legis
Iative, if need be, shall be afforded, or Gov
ernment is a failure; and from this conclu
sion I see no escape for any just mind that
would uphold tbe authorities of the country.
"In this connexion I do not hesitate to say
that tbe aim of every good citizen should be
to keep the question of slavery oat of Con
gress, its agitation there nas been produc
tive only of evil to us, and that continually.
In the present condition ot public affairs 1
can see no motive to thrust the Territorial
question on the Congressional arena that has
us origin in a leenng oi loyalty to me union.
At present the slavery question, in this as
pect of it, is not before Congress. No South
ern Senator or Representative proposes legis
lation upon it. No complaint of violated
rights comes from any Territory. No evi
dence is offered that tbe Conttitution, the
laws, and the courts are not competent to
protect personal and private property.
Hence, while I would never abandon a con
stitutional right, especially after it had beea
judicially determined, I never would prema
turely raise any question to distract the
country, when no voice demands it, North,
South, East or West.
"It should be cause of congratulation to
every patriot that tbe Territorial question is
nearly fought out. It is nearly fought out.
No man ot sense and observation ever sup
posed that the institution would ever pene
trate into Minnesota, Nebraska, and other
Northern Territories. As to the territory
south of a certain parallel of latitude, where
slave property is really profitable, and wiiere
the interests of both races seem to harmonize
in this relation, I do not doubt that ctim ite
and interest, and the proximity of slave
States, and the Constitution and tbe courts
will sustain us there in all our rights, and
that we will have Southern States out of
And thus it is that we have the curious
spectacle of two parties arrayed against each
other in releniless antagonism on a mere ab
straction, while they both join in denouncing
tbe Constitutional Union party, which pro
poses to act before tbe election on precisely
the same principles as the Democracy and
Republicans expect to act alter that event,
for the want, on tbe part of the latter two,
of any thing else which in the nature of
things it will be possible for them to do !

Indiana. A telegraphic dispatch from
Washington annonnced, a few days ago, that
no Bell and Everett electoral ticket would
be run in Indiana. This dispatch originated
with some one who had a purpose to sub
serve and who had little regard for the truth.
The Louisville Journal of Tuesday states the
facts as follows:
At a meetiog of the Executive committee
of the Constitutional Union party of Indiana
on the 4th inst., it was resolved that the
friends of Bell and Everett hold a Stale Con
vention at Indianapolis for the nomination
of an electoral ticket, and tbe 15th of August
has been regularly designated by the com
mittee as tbe day lor tbe meeting of the Con
vention. There will be a Bell and Fverett
ticket in the field in our sister State, and we
have no doubt that the many national Union
men there will work for it with the most pat
riotic zeal. -

No Compromise The Breckinridge Men

proposing to tbe Douglas men of Indiana a

that tbey could not sit in the same Conven

ready to vote for Douglas for tbsake ot win

are determined that no such comprumi.se

sacrificing the principles they professed to

it their principle is so important that tbey
must break up tbe Democratic party on ac
count of it, and break up the Union if they

From the Brownsville Independent American.
; Mr. Editor: I have been waiting, anx
iously hoping that some able pen would pay
a fitting tribute to tbe examination of tbe
Brownsville Female College. All praise is
due to President Sbelton lor his courteous,
impartial and thorough examinations. The pu
pils evinced judicious training, by their
prompt and correct answers, for which they
deserve the more credit, as they had made no
special preparation; hardly knowing in what
studies tbey would be examined. The Senior
Class appeared quite familiar with "Moral
Science," Butler's Analogy, etc. Commence

and impressive prayer by Rev. Mr. Draue, of
Memphis. Music by the band. "A Saluta
tory" Miss Huliburton. Replete with warm
welcome and the sunlight of poetic beauty.

imagination, and a cultivated heart and in

A codv of the British order in council ro-
lative to the war against China, thounh dated
early in March last, has just been officially
communicated to the Slate D. parim- ut. A
nonce to tne same enect uas also b-en re
ceived from the French Government, from
which it appears that Victoria and Napoleon
intend and desire to act during the hostilities
in strict conformity with tbe declaration of
the European Congiess at Paris in April,
1856, respecting maritime rights. They
undertake to extend the declaration that
the flag of a neutral power shall cover the
enemies' goods, wttb tbe exception of coutrsv-
band ot war, to all powers which may be
neutral in the hostilities.

The Only Instance of American
Those familiar with the history of the ad
ministration of General Jackson, have doubt
less heard of the attempt of1 the President to
control the social relations of the Secretaries
of the Cabinet department-. The recent
demise of one of the members of that
Cabinet, has revived the almost forgotten
history. The following version of the affair
has just been given to tbe world, by Hon.
Amos Kendall : -. . -. .
Washington, Juno 7, I860.
To the Editor of the Baltimore Sun :
Your notice of the death of the Hon. S. D.
Ingham, contained in your issue of this morn
ing, does incidentally great injustice both to
Gen. Jackson and Mr. Van Buren. In rela
tion to the causes which broke up Gen. Jack
son's first Cabinet, your article says : " In
1831 occurred the famous rupture between
Jotin C. Calhoun, Vice President, and Martin
Van Buren, Secretary of State. This quar
rel doubtless origiuated. in a larg measure,
from the couflictiug political aspirations of
those two celebrated leaders. Much of it,
however, though it was then, and is yet, im
possible to say bow much, was caused by the
relusal ot the wives of some mi mbers of tb e
Cabinet, and of other Washington diguitaries,
to recognize and viait Mrs. Eaton."
Your article then proceeds to say : " Gen
eral Jackson wa- a warm friend both of that
lady aud her husband, who was then Secre
tary of War. ExerciMug his iron will on
this, as tn all occasions, he determined that
she should be recogniz-.-d. Tb se two causes,
tbe rivalry of Caluouu and Van Buren, and
the quarrel about Mrs. Eatou, in whatever
proportions they may have been combined,
did, together, result in breaking up the Cubi
The rupture of 1831 was not between Mr,
Calhoun and Mr. Van Buren, as here repre
sented, but was between Mr. Calhoun and
General Jackson. It is true that Mr. Cal
uouu and hia friends attempted unsuccessfully
to bold Mr. Van Bureu responsible for the
rupture iu face ot hi& deuial and of conclu
sive lestirnouy that it was brought about by
facts and ageucies over which he bad no con
trol. As to the Mrs. Eaton affair, it is not true
that General Jackson "determined that she
shou.d be recognized." She was not recog
nized by tbe ludy of his own household, nor
did he require that the wives of his Cabinet
should recoguize her. It is true tbat be be
lieved the talcs circulated about her to be
false, aud, deprecatiug tb discord generated
between members ot his Cabinet by this af
fair, he was extremely anxious to couviuce
them all that Mrs. Eaton was not unworthy .
of tbe society of their families.
His object was harmony and unity in hia
Cabinet. To produce that he resorted to uo
iron will," but to tne chivalry and sense of
justice of the members of the Cabiuet aud
their families. Toe retusal of the ladies to
recoguize Mrs. Eaton would never ot itself
have broken up the Cabiuet; but it was the
personal hostility of the members towards
each other, generated, no douot, in part, by
tbe private quarrels .aruuliy fostered by de
signing politicians which piodaced that re
sult. In short, it was the quarrel of tbe men
and not of tbe women, which produced tne
catastrophe, though tbe former was in a de
gree tbe consequence of lue latter.
Mr. Ingham was an upright end honest
man, wiio strong prejudices and a will as
"iron" as General Jackson's. . He introduced
some important reforms into the Treasury
Department, for which he never received due

tion or otherwise, to correct the error allud
ed to, and to do justice to two eminent pub
lic men. : AMOS KENDALL.
Commenting on this letter, the New Or
leans Delta says : , ' . i- .
The death of Mr. Ingham leaves bat two
survivors of the actors in this only chapter
of court scaudal, in the history ot tbe Re
public. One is tbe venerable ex-Prcsident
Martin Van Buren, wno still maintains bis
mental vigor at his famous couu.ry scat, near
Kiuderbook, on the Hudson river. He is
said to be engaged in the preparation of a
history of tbe political events in which he
acted a part, to be published after bis death,
which will embrace the history ot onr politics
lor the whole period ot his active agency
therein. This will be, indeed, a history of
our politics almost from tbe foundation of
tbe Republic, or at least from the beginning
ot tbe Republican aud Democratic parties.

The other survivor of the great drama of
tbe Cabinet Rupture has beea mukiui; a bet

tbe lovely and graceful and piquant widow

quertly the towering and m jte Mrs. Gen"
eral Eaton, whose flashlug beauty waa.doubt
les?, the provoca'ive of much of the scandal
which General J.icks-on so gallantly sought
to arrest and suppress, is now the happy and
adoring Madame. "Antonio Buchaninl. the
wifo ot tn Lallan d.mcing master, aged
twenty-oae. The happy couple reside in
ashmgton City, and the story of their mar
riage is quite equal in romance to the other
incidents in the lady's history and far more
authentic than a great deal that ha3 been
said and writen. -Wo can not, in tbe brief
pacc allowed us, give all the act3 of this,
her most recent vn tare in the connubial
line, which, in the hands of the nccompli-hed
novelist, might be worked up into a charm
ing notelette, bat must content our readers
with the mere skeleton sketch.
The late Mrs. General E. ha3 a grandson,
of whose education she assumed special
cha-ge. This young gentlemann was sent to
a dancing school in Washington City which
bad just been opened by an Italian. Desiring
to Sc-e how her hopeinl was getting on in his
Terpsichorean stniies, grandma dropped in
to Senor Antonio's saloon one day? There
she was met and greeted by a good-looking,
gracetut-beariug Italian, with the most be
wttchiug moustaches, aud the most, insinua
ting smile. It did not. in the estimation of
tbe sui-ceptible widow, detract from the im
prcssivenes of his beanty tliat he held an
ancient violin in his hands, wore pumps and
tights, and that in front of him stood a row
of ungainly boys, who were just resting
themselves in thi third position. The wid
ow came, saw, and was conquered by the lit
tle Italian. From the moment her own fine
eyes, which used to be the terror of the anti
Jacksonites thirty years ago, fell npou the
sweet moustaches aud gentle smile ot the ir
resistible Italian, her long pent-up afl -ctions
burst tbeir bounds and overflowtd into a
gushing current that swept all obstacles be
tore iu There was nj use in the Italian re
sisting a will which had produced the rup
ture of cabinets, set our wisest politicians
by the ears, and kept the Federal capital in
a turmoil for a whole decade. We have no
information that he ever sGught to oppose
tbo determination of the enamored widow,
but doubtless in view of a comfortable resi
dence and a luxurious life, was not loath to
abandon the ungrateful employment ol seek
ing to commujicate grace and agility to
young American legs. Aud so, after several
interesting little chapters of a brief but im
passioned cimrti-hip, the buxom widow Tim
