Y. Herald, Aug. 21.
"Hostile i.etlmllou or the ort li."
The Union and American, of yesterday and
tbe day before, devotes considerable of its
ample space to a recitation of tbe acts of va
rious Northern States, through their Legisla
tures, unfriendly to tbe due and faithful exe
cution of the Fugitive Slave Law. For our
part we heartily wish that all tbe people ol
the country everywhere could be fully ad
vised of tbe true force and effect of enact
ments by CoDgresa on this subject, under tbe
express sanctions of the Federal Coustitatioo ;
and that the masses of tbe people of the
North could be fully apprised of the treason
able nature of tbe acts of those to w hom they
delegate legislative powers in their respective
. States. And we would willingly contribute
to that end in every effective way within our
reach. Unfortunately our circulation is
comparatively small amongst those who tol
erate the error and the wrong. We hope the
facilities of our neighbor are better than
ours in this res-pect, and that he will to modi
fy his tone as to be effective in his efforts.
There has never been a day since tbe organi
zation of the Republican party that the Nash
ville Patriot did not regret ito existence,
and would not have rejoiced to see it swept
from the catalogue of parties, and from tbe
country as a party. We have regarded its
origin as mischievous, and iu continuation
a no-i:ional and unpatriotic. We have
InveigLw-u against its objects, deprecated its
being, aad exeruu whatever of ability we
popeept-cd to inspire a nationality and con
servatism of feeling in all sections of tbe
country, in opposition to it Our position,
to-day, as everybody who reads us knows, Li
opposed to that party and to all other eec
ti.nil parties. Our support of Mr. Bell is,
Kit it.- If, a conclusive fact that w e are opposed
alike to all sectionalism, of every iinuf.
wherev cr it may be found.
But the Uui". and American, we fear, has a
differt object ia view. It says that about
this hostile legislation, "we hear no word of
denunciation in tLis exciting canvass from
the press and speakers of the Bell and Doug
las parties. All the efiemies of the Union in
their estimation are natives of the South."
Again it eays : "Notwithstanding this, how
little denunciation of Black Republican ten
dencies and how much denunciation of the
Southern Democracy do we find in the Bell
and Doculas journals." Its object seems to
be to inspire the enemies of the Fugitive
Slave Law with tbe belief that there are large
numoers at the South who sympathize with
them, and to nerve them to still greater ex
eitions to carry out their purposes men
who, if they do not openly approve these
enumerated acta of '-hostile legislation,7' wink
at them, and hold them as no great wrong to
the South or the Constitutional rights of the
Southern people. We do not, by any means,
eay that such is the impelling motive of the
Union and American, bat such is the result
such is tbe inference that the Northern peo
ple must draw from tbe tone and tenor of
these articles. Aside from the grossly erro
neous impression which these misguided peo
ple must obtain from tbem, what object does
our neighbor hope to attain by this course?
Does he expect to convince any supporter of
Mr. Bell or of Mr. Docglas that they are, in
any shape or form, responsible for such legis
lation ? Doea he hope by this means to in
veigle any reflecting man into the support
of Mr. Breckinridge, who is not already his
friend? If so, be is egregiou&ly mistaken.
Tbe friends of Mr. Bell, (aad we suppose tbe
same is the case with those of Mr. Docglas,)
know too well their own mind and heart
know that every action and impulse of both
are against such a conclusion to be swerved
from the line of what they honestly believe
to be patriotic duty to their whole country,
by any such "weak invention of the enemy."
What effect does our neighbor suppose would
be produced on the Legislatures of the North
ern States by a speech from a Bell or Doco
ixs orator ia Tennessee, which is never re
ported ? and if reported, never reaches, ex
cept by accident, those to whom it is direct
ed? We think, for the very strongest of
reasons, that there are enemies of tbe Union
in tbe South, and because we direct our ef
fort to put tbem down, where our influence
ia felt, leaving to our co-laborere in the
North to do their part of the work against
the enemies ol equality and right in that sec
tion where their Influence is felt, are we to be
that indirectly and insidiously branded as
tbe taleo sympathizers, the willing abettors
of "this Lottiie legislation," this "northern
acgr-eeiou ?' If such is to be the case, let it
be done openly. If the "Bell and Douglas
preM and speakers' in tbe South are to be
I laced ia this category, let it be made known
i -era not to be mistaken.
Iia to get at tbe root of the matter, we
a ' 1 "ve to inquire of our contemporary
o,- :;is the Republicans of the North are
&b;e ty proeecute this hostile legislation and
to carry it out raccesefully against the pro
perty of tie Southern people? It is a tradi
tion among the common people that the con
stitutional law of Congress are superior to
those of the States ; and also that the Presi
dent la worn to execute the laws of Congress.
It. ihi.- troet Whose fault la It, then, that
these "higher laws" are set vp against those
ofCongrewt If they haTe proven effective,
mere is .va- - -
.hoi, oower of the Federal government,
sworn to execute tbe laws If tbepe State
laws hare been carried into effect, it was in
violation of the laws of Congress, and in spite
of the sworn duty of the President. But
when did Mr. Buchanan ever seek to enforce
the Fugitive Slave Law by the force at his
command? If any one is reeponsible for the
non-execution of that Federal law, thePresi
jn ).icp all others, is that man. We di
rect our contemporary to that functionary
for a judicious expenditure of its censure and
its thunder. The patriotic conservative peo
ple of the Union have witnessed the very
evils to which the Union and American directs
public attention, and consequently they
pent representatives to the Union Convention
at Baltimore in May last, to nominate a man
who would pledge himself to enforce the
laws. They succeeded, and presented a can
didate to the country, who will redeem that
pledge, at all hazards. The loose enforce
ment of the laws, under democratic rule is
one of the crying evils of the times, and we
are engaged in an earnest effort to correct it.
That is our object and our motto, and we
trust tbe people will unite with n in its
happy and thorough accomplishment.
We make the following proposition to the
Union and American :
We will prepare an article; not to exceed
in length two columns in the Patriot, made
np ol extracts from the record of w m. L,
Yaxckt, proving Lis didunioni&m. If the
Unton mud American will republish the said ar
tiele, we will republish one of the same
length, prepared by tbe Union and American,
and composed of extracts from the record of
Johx BeLL. or awry leading man tvpporting him
for the Presidency, showing their disunionism.
Here is a chance, neighbor, to show your
faith in the charge of disunion on Mr. Bell.
an the Unionism of Mr. Yaxcet.
Lane axd Bell ! When old Joe Lane was
fighting in Mexico, as well as he could with
his led baud, his right arm having been disa
bled bv a Mexicau bullet, Mr. Bell was in
Congress denouncing tbe war and advising
that we cbould give it np. Montgomery Mail.
The editor of tbe Mail often expresses a de-
tire tor jnfctice and fair-dealing in political
di-cussioiis ; but iu the above paragraph he
does Mr. Bell injustice. Gen. Lane never
fought or participated iu a battle iu Mexico,
while Mr. Bell was in Congress. Mr. Bell
never ''denounced the Mexicau War" in Con
grc?f. He made but ono important speech
on tbe subject, and that was delivered in tbe
Senate on tbe very day that the treaty of
peace w as concluded Feb. 2, 181S and op
posed tbe unnecesrary continuance of tbe
war by raiiug additional forces when our
strength was sufficient for our justice and
safety, and opposing tbe ecbtme of the con"
quest and annexation of tbe whole f Mexico,
which he believed tben to be on foot. He
voted to confirm that treaty in company with
Joux C. Cu.hocx and twenty -five otber demo.
cratic Senators. Will the Mail do itself and
Mr. Bell the justice to publish these fact
Old Rutherford Wide Awake.
A Bell and Everett Mass Meeting was held
in Rutherford countv, last Tuesday, near
Murfreesboro'. The people turned out in
large numbers, and the greatest enthusiasm
prevailed. A gentleman, who was one of the
delegation from this city, estimates tbe crowd
at about four thousand, an unusual propor
tion being ladies. Three tables, each a hun
dred yards long, were uot sufficient to accom
modate all tbe ladies at one time, at dinner,
so many were there to give the cause of the
Union and tbe Constitution the advantage of
their influence. Speeches were made by lion.
Jxo. S. Bril-x, E. I. Golladat, Eq Ex-Gov.
N. S. Bnowx, and Robt. Hattox. With 6uch
a corps of speakers as this, the intellectual
feast could uot have been otber than of the
highest order. All of these gentlemen ac
quitted themselves well, and the influence of
their speeches was seen and felt, and will be
still more plainly seen in November.
Capt. Crensuaw, of this city, with his gal
lant MghlanJert, was present, attended by the
Bell Guard of Murfreesboro. Tbe Highland
ers are delighted with their trip, and speak
in glowing terms of the hospitality of their
brethren in Rutherford.
Bell Clubs. We are much gratified to
witness the formation of Bell and Everett
Clubs in the country. The town Clubs are
doing a great work, and now we hear of
them extending their patriotic influences into
tbe country, amongst the "bone and sinew"
of the land. There were three Clubs organ
ized in the adjoining county of Wilsoa, last
week one at Cedar Grove on Tuesday, and
another at Statesville on Friday, and still an
other at Cainsville on Saturday. "Now, by
St. Paul, the work goes bravely on."
JzS The friends of Bell and Everett at
Mount Pleasant and vicinity, inManry coun
ty, will have a grand rally at that place on
Saturday cexL They intend to raise a Union
Pole on the occasion, on which they will run
np tbe stars and stripes, as a fit emblem of
the cause in which they are engaged. Dis
tinguished speakers will be present, and they
will have a regular jubilee. Let tbe good
work go on
JT" The gallant and enthusiastic friends
of Bell and Everett at Lebanon, will erect
a Union Liberty Pole, on tbe Publie Square
in that town on the evening of the 5 th Sep
tember. The Pole will be 150 feet high, and
from its pinnacle will stream the flag of tbe
Union aud nothing but the Union. Mav we
be there to see.
Grand Mass Meetixg at Lebavox. The
Constitutional Union Party of Wilson coun

the Tenerabie patriot, Joen J. CRrrrEXDEX.
Ample provision will be made for the ac
commodation of ten thousand persons,
Everybody is invited. It will be a glorious
revival of the patriotic spirit of our fathers.
Xew York Comlns into the Field
The proposed national Conserva
, Tbe uprising of the national conservative
men to put down Lincoln, and the fanatic
followers of tbe treasonable Massachusetts
school, goes bravely on, and from every side
we receive cheering evidences that the great
masses of tbe people are opposed to all sec
tional doctrine ia whatever shape or from
whatever quarter it may come.
On Friday a meeting of conservative men,
without reference to party affiliations, was
held at tbe Metropolitan Hotel in this city,
for the purpose of taking into consideration
the best manner of arranging for a meeting
of the conservative national men - of all par
ties, and giving expression to the national
impulses of the commercial, industrial, finan
cial and intellectual metropolis of the Union.
There were present Bell men, Breckinridge
men, Douglas men, Houston men, and men
who refuse to affiliate with any purely polit
ical party, and who may be called tbe repre
sentatives of the million of eclectio voters
who rarely go to the polls, but who, in No
vember next, are determined to vote for the
ticket that will beat Lincoln. The proposi
tion for united action was received with uni
versal favor, and a committee of live gentle
men was appointed for the purpose of making
preliminary arrangements. Tbe political
cliques and factions were also represented in
the meeting, and efforts were made to bias
iu action, but the attempts were all put
down at ooce JV. T. Herald, 260. .

copies of the Southern Tj-ucmo fVir.t;t.
that those constitutions did contain the motto

After the organization of which League,
l ancey made one of his two hours' speeches,
relating the wrongs of the South under tbe
Federal government, and declaring it to be
dishonorable for any true friend to tbe South
longer to affiliate with any national party.
v e nave referred to tbe tales of our paper
of that month, and find the above to be an
accurate account of uot only Yancey's move
ments, but tbe constitution of tbe League at
Bethel Cnurcb, as published in all tbe pa
pers. Yet Yancey now, when bis SEDITION
is held before him, wants to explain, deny,
and back out of it.
We have never seen a convict in a Peni
tentiary, who did not declare bis innocence
to the last. If there was such crime as trea
son Yancey has made such a record for him
Belf as would convict him before any twelve
impartial men. It is natural for him to de
ny his crime, wben be finds himself held to
isy comparing them, the reader will see
that tbe constitution of the Southern League
embraced in the above article from the Senti
nel, is identical with that republished in the
Patriot of July 12, as having been adopted
at Bethel Church, and which Mr. Yaxcet had
tbe hardihood in bis Memphis speech to de
nounce as a " political forgery." As Mr,
Yaxcet was present and made a speech at
Bethel Church when it was adopted, of course
he knew it was no forgery. Tbis is another
indication of his reliability.
The following extract from a sketch of his
speech at Bethel Church, copied from the
Montgomery Mail, will show the character of
"What tben? Mr. Yancey said, for himself,
he had little hope of justice for tbe South ix
the Uxiox; but he should be willing to wait
and try all expedients, until a ma
jority of his fellow-citizens entertained like
convictions. He was opposed to overthrow
ing tbe National Democratic party, because,
although from causes he bad mentioned, that
party had been unable to give to tbe South a
full recognition of its rights, yet. In his opin
ion, it entertained better views of the consti
tutional rights of the South than any other
party and on all other questions it was a
great, wise and safe trustee of nonnlar nnwr.
I No new party can be got up that will act
better he believed, none that will do as well.
. Sympathizing greatly with the canse of tbe
boutn, it had made great efforts to save us,
and only paused when its own destruction
would have been the result of persistence. But
it had failed to act np to the full measure of
our rights, and was a proof that no national
party can protect ua. The people are devoted
to parties, and will be party men. He bided
his time when they would throw off thesluicJdet
both of parties and of the government, and assert
their ixdepexdexce in a Southern Confede
racy." Terily, the more this matter is investigated
the more seriously does Mr. Yancet become
Mr. Breckinridge for Union. The New
York Journal of Commerce says : "A letter
from Mr. Breckinridge himself has been re
ceived iu tbis city, urging conciliation and
co-operation. We have not yet seen the let
ter, but a friend of our has. It urges the
importance of carrying the State for some
body anybody besides Lincoln. Agreed."
The "Eclectic," for September, is a noble
number. The illustrations are a portrait of
Mt Makepeace Thaceert, and a groupe con
taining the venerable forms of those members
of the "noble army of martyrs" of olden
time, Cbanmkr, Ridley and Latimer. Tbe
latter picture is a most admirable one, as to
tbe former, we don't like Thackeray, (though
it isn't "orthodox" to acknowledge it,) and
neither do we like his phisiognomy. Mr.
Sartaix, however, has done his best to make
his subject agreeable, and has almost succeed,
ed, a thing which tbe subject himself will
never be able to do -at least to us. No
doubt if Mr. Makepeace knew tbis be would
feel inexpressibly "cut down," so in all kind
ness we trust he will never find it out.
As regards tbe literary contents of the
"Eclectic," we believe honestly that every
mother's son of us would be not only pleased,
but profited by a consideration of such arti
cles as ''Curiosities of Compromise," "lx
rors in Female Training," "Rivers and their
Associations," "RIenzl, the Last of the Tri
bunes," and the "Life of Henry Havelock."
We are happy to learn that the circulation of
our excellent "Eclectic" Is increasing rap-
idlj it is a "consummation aevouiiy to oe-
worked far. In the next number we are pro
mised a portrait of Garibaldi, the hero of
Sicily, who is, just now, before "all the
world's admiring eyes." Let ns have it Mr.
Bidwill, "at your earliest convenience."
The Chicago Times gives the follow
ing account of a recent Republican mass
meeting in Illinois :
Sventv-four millions of veoole assembled
at Springfield last week, to look at Abe Lin
coln. A procession was formed, which reach
ed from Chicago to Cairo, and was twenty
day's in passing 'Old Abe's" house. Speeches
were made by uemosuenes. Cicero, .Aaron
Burr and Hanks, Lincoln's cousin, who
learned Abe bow to split rails, over seventy
years ago, before he came from New Jersey.

Out Political Correspondence! ILhd
the progress of the Counter Ue'vln
In another part of this day's papef will be
found a mass of correspondence, from every
point of the compass, bearing on tbe Presi
dential election, and indicating tbe direction
and ttrength of the popular breeze in the
various localities, or the change of the po
litical current, or the upper current and the
under current flowing in opposite directions
ot tbe same time. On tbe whole, tbe tenden
cy is to unite the conservative elements,
both at the North and at the Sourb, against
tbe anti-slavery disunionists on one side and
the fire-eating disnnionists on tbe otber.-
It will be seen that while here in the State
of New York the conservatives are combin
ing against republicanism, the republicans
are divided among themselves, the Weed
faction and tbe Greeley faction entertaining
the most bitter feelings of mutual animosity
against each otber. Tbe effect of the Union
ticket on tbe party is demoralizing. The
leading republican journals feel its effect,
and they are out of temper. There is crimi
nation and recrimination, as always bappem
in disasters en shipboard and elsewhere.
Charges of corruption are flung at each
otber, and hardly denied by tbe individuals
accused. As for tbe parly in the last Legis
lature, the evidence of its corruption is so
overwhelming that there is no at
tempt at denial, but a clumsy attempt
to throw an equal share of tbe
responsibility on tbe shoulders of the
democrats, which is too absurd for serious
reply, seeing that in the Assembly the repub
licans were ninety.-one to tbii ty-seven demo
crats, and in tbe benate twenty-three repub
licans to nine democrats. Tbey had the game
of plunder entirely in their own hands, and
those republican leaders who were not per
mitted to share in the spoils are fierce in their
attacks upon those wbo led the lobby, alleg
ing that this profligacy is highly prejudicial
to the party in tbe appron-hing irrepressible
conflict; and that if republicanism should be
defeated it is not because its cause is bad, but
its champions unworthy. These bickerings
ana misgivings argue "the foregone conclu
son." if tbe leaders felt that tbev were on
tbe road to victory, they would be in such
good humor that they would forget all past
differences in tbe contemplation ot :ae bright
prospect Deiore uem.
Scared by the onward m i.ch of conserva
tism, some try to parry tbe effect of tbe com
bination ticket by pretending, like Chevalier
Webb, that republicanism is highly conserva
tive and even pro-slavery. Others bring
their batteries to Dear upon tbe combination
ot the allies with such fury that tbey disclose
tbe secret that their hopes have grown des
perate, and the conviction that the State of
New York is lost to them. Iu Pennsylvania
and New Jersey tbe republican cause Is also
doomed; and there is every probability that
in some of the New England States the coun
ter revolution setting iu so strongly against
it will result in its overthrow. JV. V. Herald,

A correspondent of tbe Augusta (Ga.)
Constitutionalist gives the following account of
a speech made by Mr. Stephens at Crawfords-
ville last Monday:
The court then adjourned, as it was ex
pected that Judge Linton Stephens would
address the people on the political issues of
tne aay. uut as tbe J udge was indisposed,
the Hon. A. H. Stephens supplied his place.
ana ior more man one hour enchained the
audience by his matchless eloquence in de
fense or the blessings we now enjoy under
tne best government on earth, and showing
the evils which he seriously apprehended
irom sectionalism and tbe disorganizing ten
dency of tbe seceders at Charleston.
He said that Judge Douglas was not his
first choice, vet he believed that Douglas bad
shown more moral courage in defending his
convictions of right against prejudice and
fanaticism at home, than any statesman now
living North or South, and the war now
waged against him by officeholders and seek
ers, from envy and malice, reminded him of
wolves bounding to death a lordly buffalo;
and knowing that Stephen A. Douglas has
stood side by side and voted with the South
in ber perils and trials, be believed him true,
honorable, and the most powerful friend tbe
South ever had.
He would not stand by silently and see him
denounced, without attempting to defend
him. He would feel as guilty as was the man
of old, wbo held the martyr's clothes while
the mob stoned bim to death and for one,
though he should stand alone, he would raise
his voice to cheer on tbe good men of the
North who were striving to defeat Lincoln
and save tbe Union. But if sectionalism
should prevail, and all should be lost if tbe
Union, and peace, and all should go down
together yet be would raise aloft with all
his strength tbe banner on which is Inscribed
non-intervention, and a firm adherence 3
our plighted faith." He closed with a most
eloquent appeal to the conservative feelings
of his audience to stand by the Union and tbe
Constitution of our fathers.
From the best information I can get, there
are not ten Breckinridge men in the county,
and it is 6tated that tbe vote is nearly equallv
divided between Bell and Douglas.
Oca Commerce with Japax. Tbe news
which we published yesterday from Japan
shows that tbe opening of tbat country by
American enterprise has already resulted in a
wonderful amount or commerce between tbe
United States and tbe once "hermetic em
pire." Americans are In high favor there,
because the Japanese know from our history
and our antecedents tbat we will not plun
der them of their property and despoil them
of their territory and independence, as fili
bustering European Powers have done with
the other nations of the East. They have
found out that it is to their interest to make
treaties of commerce and amity with the
United States a security to them against
the designs of the invaders of India and China.
let tbe American government has not
opened the commerce of Japan for its own
citizens alone, but for all the world. This
great republic bas no petty jealousy of tbe
commercial rivalry of any other nation. All
it wants is a free stage and no favor, and it
is willing to depend for its success on fair
competition with all other nations. There is
one advantage nature has cdnferred on us in
relation to the Japanese empire; it is our ge
ographical position our proximity to those
islands which, with the principle and prac
tice ot our government, not to found colo
nies or conquer distant countries, will always
give our commerce sufficient preeminence in
Japan over tbat of nations whose wealth and
greatness are founded in tbe colonial system.
When writing on the subject of tbe negro

Thb Texas Troubles. The Texas papers
are still filled with alarming accounts of tbe
disturbances in various., portions - of ' tbat I
State. We have carefully examined and
compared tbe various reports, (says tbe Mo
bile Register') and althongh in the excitement
and alarm which such occurrences necessari
ly create, some allowance must be made for
exaggeration and vivid coloring, sufficient is
known to show that the troubles are even
more serious than at first supposed. Property
to a very large amount has been destroyed,
and a painful sense of insecurity naturally
prevails in the infested regions. Nothing
has as yet been developed to prove an organ
ganized conspiracy or a regular plan at over
throwing the institution of slavery. So far
as we can judge, tbe disturbances are due to
gangs of desperadoes from the prairies, per
baps also from South of the Rio Grande,
whose object is plunder, and who use tbe ne
groes as tools for their nefarious purposes.
We trust tbe summary and efficient meas
ures adopted by the citizens will soon clear
the country ot these villains who have not
even tbe excuse of fanaticism for their atroc
ities. The Electors far this District closed

to their passions ana prejudices, inienaea to Kindle
dissensions between the sections, and toeaken tk
bonds wave btnd them together. While the aboli.
(touted denounce the Constitution and the Union, "as
an unholy compact," the tniihart and advocates of the

dissolution desirable, and tbey rival each other in their
hostility to th it caun conservative policy which would
counsel mutual forbearance between tbe different
portions of our Confederacy.
The object contemplated in the organization of the
southern Leagne, u one which no patrwt can approve.
It is a combiuation for the purpose of strengthening
sectional Jealousy and hatred, and weakening the tie
which bind tbe South to the Union. It assumes an
attitude of resistance to the general government and is
an avowed preparation jar open rebellion. It ia not a
combination of men uniting together for tbe redress
of their common wrongs, or for the establishment of
a great principle. .o such sacred object sanctifies
the movement, or extenuates the recklessness of
those who participate in it. Jt it bated upon consider
ations of pecuniary advantage alone. Cotton ia the
bond which unites them together. Cottoa is the King
that wields iu gotdes sceptre over their heads, and
tbey bend submissively to its demmioo. It is humil-
tattag to oonless that the noble spirited freemen or

country, sot because as government was nojast, or

cians who. failing to eaiu distinction Im UAr ii,.
and ability, seek to obtain notoriety by the advocacy of
The characteristics ot tne document are prolixity,
egotism, and imbecility. It will do no barm.
Cul. Yancey defends his former position, that the in
terests of the South must be committed entirely to
the Cotton States. Xow we do not doubt that the true
v - a-wM-vsar ursa uHunfuni.uiu ! rfi irni rtw a as as
interests of tbe South mixht be safelv entrusted tn
the people of any of the Southern States. We believe
that Col. Yancey's own State Alabama is as fuith-
ful to the South and as loyal to tbe Union as anv nth.
er, and among the evidence of her fidelity we point
to the fact, that the large body of her citizens have
reiueea to unite in this factious and disoreanizino-
movement, or to elevate its author to a rxaution in
wbich he could propagate his opinions. Ve believe
that all tbe Cotton Slates will vigilantly guard the
houor aud interest of our section, and that belief ia
strengthened by the fact, that they discountenance ikr
sche.ne which OA. Yancey has set on foot to "precipitate
than into a revolution." -
But while we acknowledge this, we rivl mt .
sinuation wbich implies a suspicion that Tennessee is
less sensitive to the honor of tbe South, or that she
would be less prompt in reaistioeanv invasion ofnnr
common rights than any otber member of the con
federacy. We deny tbe justice of Col. Yanr'
charges, and the correctness of the facts by wbich -ho
We are not astonished that Col. Yaucev ulacea lint
tittle trust Id Tennessee. The home of Jackson and
Polk is not propitlons to the growth and nurture of
disunion doctrines, nor do the people of tbis Stata re
gard with much favor men who entertain the views
which vol. r ancey expresses. The State of Tennessee
fully reciprocates Col. Yancey's feehugs towards her.
We don't think that any of the States have a great
deal of confluence in him.
The allegation tbat the delegates from Tcnneiwee in
the Methodist Conference voted against striking out
the anti-slavery clause in tbe discipline, is totally
false. Every delegate from Tennessee voted ia favor
of striking out that clause. It ia equally untrue tbat
we maintain upon our Supreme ueucli a man who
openly declares tbat slavery is a moral, social or po
litical evil. These statements of Col. Yancey's, dis
play the most disgraceful umorance or a most mlnahlr
disregard for the truth of his assertions. And such i s
tne material ol wuich this tissue of absurdities con
sists. Such is the man who assumes to proscribe Ave
of the Southern States of the confederacy as unwor
thy of the confidence of the Southern people. We
shall pause long before we abandon the principles we
nave learnea irom jacKson ana rone, and the great
fathers of our Democratic faith , to 1 isten to the teach
ings of Wm. 1- Yancey.
From the Union and American .October 28,1838.
William I.. Yancey.
We must apologize to our readers for again obtrn.
ding this gentleman's name upon their notice. Tcer
ia nothing in either his position or talents to euliue
bim to tbe aUention he has received, but the malia.
nity of his assault upon our State and the injustice of
his charges against a respectable denomination or
chrisuaus in our midst demanded from us a public
exposure. It is tbe P-irt of little minds to oeraiat in
error, when conscious of having committed a wrong,
and we are not astonished that Mr. Yancey repeat his
misrepresentations. Fearing the impudence of his as
sertions may be received as evidence of their truth,
we will present the facts which Mr. Yancey has per
verted, and leave tbe reader to determine whether we
have done mm any injustice in our denial of the alle
gations contained in his letter to ilr. Pry or. In !'"t
letter he expresses the opinion that tbe state of 2en
nessee is unworthy of confidence where the interests of the
South are involved.
Tbe subsequent action of that body fthe Method iat
Conference) with reference to the subject is Mtudiousln
suppressed by Mr. Yancey, and we are justified in the
the oeuei, inasmucn as he had the proceed Lnca of the
Conference before him, thathe has perpetrated an
intentional injustice against its members, in order to
sustain himself in the false position which he had as
sumed. If he had pubhsned the following statement
from the Advocate it would have disclosed the 'aui-
jiaasor aUsscATKaesi tbat "the Delegates from Ten
nessee voted against striking out tbe anti-ilavery
clause of the discipline." "We do not expect either
Tana oa JCgrics from a man who will assail the pa
triotism of an entire State on such pretenses as these.
We can oispose oi Air. x ancey without resorting to
Latin. The obtuaeness of intellect which this rare
specimen of logic displays can scarcely be described
iu any language, but plain English will serve welt
enough to characterise the Basxsws or sis cosdcct.
We have devoted more time and space to Mr. Yan
eey than he deserves. We shall leave hisn now to en
joy (he notoriety he has earned, or to sneak back from
infamy -to insignificance.

FT justice to the Academy, I take this mode of con
tradicting the following reports, in which there ex
ists not the shadow of truth:
1st. That the prices of tuition are raised, and the
time of payments changed.
2d. That all the old pupils of the Academy are to be
examined and classified without any regard to their
previous position or gradation tn the school.
In this connection I will add, that unless these, or
some other prejudicial reports should affect the patron
age, it will fully , if not more than equal that of any
previous year. The indications by letter and personal
application are of the most Haltering kind.
