DEATH OF CHAELES M. DENIE.
A telegraphic dispatch to a brother in this
city craveys the melancholy intelligence that
Charles M. Dekie died is New Orleans on
Saturday last, of an affection of the brain.
Mr. Dixie had only been residing in New Or
leans about three months, and was, we believe,
a reporter for one of the morning journals
His fugitive productions, given to the public
tkrwgh the medium of the newspapers of thic
oty, prove him to have been a poet of no incon
sideraMe merit Intense feeling was the pre-
doainant feature of his compositions. His
actiss was pare, and rythm harmonious. The
ebservation and talent he possessed, if employ
ed span a rsore remunerative profession, would
bave ifesured him competency and position far
saperler to that which he attained by writing
peees for the journals. Mr. Denie waB at

eternal calm to his soal!

The founders have intended to establish
Southern College for females, affording all ne
cessary advantages and facilities for a thorough
and extensive education, both in the solid and
ornaaental branches. The Memphis Female

their success. To the agents of this noble en

As a continuation of our remarks, in a for

Memphis," we point to this College as an im'

ethervrije be sent to some distant part of the
country. And every one who is sent here to b

to our city a like amount of money. Put all
these sums together, which are accumulating

the Meaphis Female College is doing a nobl
work, and directly or indirectly benefiting all
other branches of business.

With regard to health it is enough to
say, that there has not been a death or a sin

at the College during the past five sessions.
The known experience and scholarship, the
punctuality, business babits and energy of the
President, and what he has already done, con
constitute the best guaranty that he will do
everything that can be done to promote the
prosperity of the College.
We would not be understood as indifferent to

heartily wish them all abundant success.
The Washington TJaloa.
New Editor or the Washington Union.
The rumor is current, although we think no de
finite arrangement to that effect has been con
sufismated, that Hon. John Appleton, of Maine,
is to succeed Judge Nicholson as editor of the
Washington Union. We are quite certain that
we are not mistaken when we say that Mr. Ap
pletoa't accession to the post named will be
received with satisfaction by the entire Demo
cratic party of the Union. He is a gentleman
of fine talents, familiar with public life bar
ing been in Congress, and served as Secretary
of Legation at Loudon, while Mr. Buchanan
was Minister accustomed to editorial service
as the conductor of the Eastern Argtis, a paper
of decided ability and discretion ; and, above
all, as a qualification for the position which
ruraer assigns him, possesses sagacity and pru
dence. He is welt understood to enjoy, in a
high degree, the esteem and confidence of the
incoming President. Jib any Arus.
The rumor referred to above is well founded.
After the 4th of March the editor of this paper
will retire, when the Hon. John Appleton will
become sole editor and proprietor. The ar
rangements which have resulted in this change
have been consummated without the slightest
difficulty; and we sincerely congratulate our
readers upon a result which secures the ser
vices of a gentleman whose eminent qualifies
tions are so truthfully set forth in the above
remarks of the Albany Argus. We may be
excused for adding that our retirement is vol
untary, and in pursuance of a resolution long
tince made. At present we deem any further
remarks unnecessary. Washington Union,

as to its ultimate success, and then its editorials
would not have been so inexcusable. But now,
when hope is reviving and prospects brighten
ing, it ill becomes a citizen of Arkansas, whose
State pride extends beyond his county, to at
tempt to destroy conftJence in a work of so
much moment to no small portion of Arkansas.

sufferers : is it not further true, that if it sue

holders are benefited, in a three-fold proportion
will Arkansas be gainer. Their profits will be

hnMii aloud iti lanction of the extension of
time granted by the late Legislature of Arkan

the unfortunate difficulty which occurred be
tween the President and contractors was a
scheme to carry out fraudulent designs. But
this charge of trickery and a want of interest
in the road, which it makes against the Com
pany, is but a cloak under which an unpatriotic
spirit is at work. How can it hope to sustain
such a charge? Does not every one know that
the energy and means that have thus far ad
vanced the road originated in Memphis; does it
not know that had it not been for the Memphis
bonds the road, instead of being partly erected

vn. i,.,t that it is iealousv. and that
spirit which prompts one to weep at the success
of his neighbor. The better judgment must
trh that all railways of any importance have
their delays atone hand or another.
Why should the State Rights Democrat oppose
the Memphis and Little Rock Railroad? Will
it prevent the favorite city of that sheet from
building their roads and carrying out their pro
jects? Will it Injure the State of Arkansas ?
fZnt it all on the contrary it will build ud our
State in those regions through which it runs,
add millions of wealth, and convert her wilds
into beautiful fields and orchards. That sheet
says the Memphis and Little Rock Railroad,
when built, will be a mere bridge to carry off
the wealth of our State to a "foreign city."
We little expected to hear this from a news
paper which has battled against Know-Noth-
ism through a memorable campaign, and now
daily proclaims that the Southern States are
united in destiny and interest. Are. all the
labored articles, written in defence of foreign
ers, and all its admonitions to the Southern
StateB to be united in interest, from the teeth
out ? Is that democrat desirous of protecting
the favorite city with a tariff? Would he have
us lose thousands rather than Memphis (a for
eign city as he sees proper to call it) should
have the benefits of our trade ? Would it have
us spend millions to make the favorite city a
commercial mart, when Memphis and the gen
eral government proposes to bring Memphis to
our doors, by railway? Such is the inevitable
conclusion of some editorials which have lately
appeared in the Stale Rights Democrat. It takes
occasion to say it would not have been partial
legislation to have passed the act relating to
the Cairo and Fulton Road, and then rejected
the memorial of the Directory of the Memphis
and Little Rock Railroad. The former, it
says, was a great national highway the latter
was not. I cauiot believe it is sincere in this
remark; for it is a notorious fact, that from
Memphis there are railways, fast being com
pleted, extending into almost every Eastern
State. It Is evident to all that the Memphis
and Little Rock Railroad is bound to be a very
important link in the chain of railways that are
to connect Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia,
Alabama, North and South Carolina, to the
great Pacific road.
We would not trouble ourselves to answer
the articles in the State Rights Democrat were
it not that we wish the people of Memphis and
the Directory of the Memphis and Little Rock
Railroad to know that it does not speak the
sentiments of Eastern Arkansas, but for the
favorite city alone. We are sorry to see that
there is a willingness in some persons to blast
the hopes of St. Francis, Crittenden and Poin
sett counties, and in fact the whole scope of
country through which the Memphis and Little
Rock Railroad will traverse, just because a
certain city will not be profited by that road.
We are desirous of seeing the favorite city
grow and become great, but are not willing that
we should be deprived of the benefits of
speedy transit for our produce to market.
Hoping such editorials, which do nothing more
than show the contracted and selfish views of
their authors, will not be received by the Board
of Directors and the city of Memphis as the
sentiments of Eastern Arkansas, but only a few
in our sister county, we forbear saying mare.

to labor to show you that the piosperity and

This is a field in which all can labor, and if
we will but come together in solid phalanx, as
it were, it will result in an amonnt of interest
and general good to our profession that will
very far surpass the expectations of the most
sanguine, and which could not be equalled by
an- olher direction to which we could give our
efforts for a similar length of time. Then we
say to our colaborers, meet us in the city of
Memphis, Tennessee, on the 2d day of March
next. I can assure you, upon the authority of
many able and eminent medical men, that the
meet'ig will be as interesting and profitable as
they may be capable of making it.

In a word we will just say, that it will, be

convened in the United States of America. We
sincerely hope that none, no not one of our pro

Watrous is guilty of any one of tne accusa

at once from the bench. If innocent, he Bhould

Inaugural Address cf Gov. Willard, cf Indians.
The Inangural Address of Gov. Willard, of
Indians. it a most admirable public document.
We make from it the following noble extracts,
.vhir'u do credit to the heart and head of its
author. The Governor says :
There has been during the last few years an
earnest efTort made, not only in Indiana, but in
other States, to create jealousy and strife be
tween those who had hitherto been friends and
equals. Until 1854, during most of the time
since the adoption of the Constitution of the
United States, the policy has been to encour
age emigration from all civilized countries, by
the establishment of liberal laws for naturali
zation. Many of the States including Indiana,
in support of this wise policy, conferred, at an
early day, the right of suffrage upon those who
were willing to abjure their allegiance to all
foreign govei iments,and swear fidelity to ours.
Allured by these promises of protection and
liberty, the tide of emigration swelled rapidly;
multitudes were hastening from the overtaxed
and unpaid labor of Europe to make their homes
in a country which offered such a prospect of
improvement in their condition. Two years
ago, designing men, well knowing the pride of
the American born in his native land, and the
prejudice many entertained for the prevailing
religion of a large majority of adopted citizens,
endeavored to deprive them of their riphta,
guarantied by the Constitution and laws of the
United States, and the Constitution of the State
of Indiana, by malting new, illegal and anti
American tests for office. For the first time
since the establishment of our present form of
Government, the effort has beeu made to down
tbe standard of toleration erected by our fath
ers, and plant in its stead the one which repre
sents the narrow bigotry and superstition of
Europe ; to transplant upon American sod those
persecutions and religious wars which so long
retarded the advancement of civilization. They
proclaimed that ability, integrity and fidelity to
the Constitution were no longer qualifications
for office, which should entitle their possessor
to the confidence and support of his fellow
citizens. But on the contrary, so long as he
worshipped God in a form contrary to their
wishes, or was born upon other than American
soil, he must take no part in the administration
of the Government. They demanded such a
chance in the laws as should deny to them the
benefits of naturalization until after a residence
of twenty-one years.
Why shall we not adopt as an American
citizen the voluntary exile from his native land,
within the time now prescribed by law? By
so doing, we confer upon him no right of suf
frage, no right, to purchase, hold, or alienate
property. We simply throw around him the
protecting arm or. uie united states, aua auvise
all other nations that he is sacred as a Son of
Liberty aB though born under the Constitution.
When and upon what conditions persons,
either foreign or native born, shall acquire and
dispose of property, or exercise the right of
suffrage in any State, depends upon no act of
Congress, but upon the laws of the State.
These designing men, whose love for office so
exceeded their desire for the peace and pros
perity of their country, knew that their hopes
of success depended upon appealing to the pre
judices and passions of men, where no opportu
nity was onerea to counteract tneir eiiorts by
the soothing influence of reason. Accordingly,
iney esiaousneaaecret political organizations,
studiously excluding therefrom all who would
not sustain their unchristian and illiberal doc
trines. Reflecting men were persuaded that, in
a short time, thinking; and patriotic citizens
would abandon these associations; and they
have not been disappointed.
Gentlemen, you have all been more onless
"engaged in tbe canvass which has just closed
in Indiana, and you cannot but have observed
how few of our fellow-citizeu determined
their action by any benefit they expected to de-
ri7e,-or any Injury they feared to suffer, from
the laws of their own State. Indeed, they were
seldom called upon to consider those subjects
which more nearly affected their local inter
ests, but had their attention rather directed to
the laws and institutions of other States and
Territories ; and I think I am warranted in ex
pressing the opinion, that the neonle of no
State ever more thoroughly investigated their
outy. After tne most careful consideration,
tney nave decided tnat, as for Indiana, she will
recognize and execute the Constitution of the
United States as the highest law for the gov
ernment of her people, as that Constitution is
interpreted by the tribunal established and au-
tnorlzed by the instrument itself, to decide be
tween the separate and United States.
That as for those who regulate the laws and
institutions of other States, we will concede to
them the same sovereignty and independence
which we claim for ourselves. Nor do we
stop here. If our fellow-citizens desire to go
beyond the limits of the States and make their
homes within the territories (purchased by the
blood and treasures of all) we say they go
shorn of their sovereign rights whicn they pos
sessed as citizens of the State, but fully au
thorized to regulate their domestic affairs in
their own way, subject only to the Constitu
tion of the United States. At the time the Fed
eral Union was formed, all thought as we now
no. iney oeneved tnat it was sare to permit
the people of each State to regulate their lo
cal institutions in their own way ; and that
patriotism and Christian duty demand that
they should protect them in their rights as they
were guarantied by the letter and spirit of the
Constitution which made that Union.
But during the last canvass, from the press,
the rostrum and the pulpit, the proclamation
was made that the citizens of some of the
States were violating the laws of God and in
juring the cause of human freedom by holding
a kind of property, which, when the war of
the Revolution began, had a legal existence in
ever7 Dortion of the vast empire which now
recognizes aa supreme law tne uonsutuuon or
the United States that it was our duty to dis-
- . .1 r. ,, -
regard the plighted faith of our fathers, and
trample under our feet the agreement they had
made, rather than see the constitutional rights
of property maintained ; and moreover, that it
was our duty to elect a President of the United
States, with a Congress to sustain him, who
maintained that when an American citizen
crossed the boundary of the State and entered
the territory, he should be no longer a freeman,
possessed of the inalienable rights of life, lib
erty, and the pursuit of happiness, but reduced
to the condition of colonial vassalage that n
new State should be added to this confede
racy unless her citizens made her laws, not in
accordance with their own will, but in obedi
ence to the tyrannical dictation of the citizens
of the old.
Indiana rejected these anti-Democratic, un-
constitutional doctrines, exhibitinga patriotism
and a fidelity to liberty worthy of the best i
days ot the Kepubiic. ane instructed ner
representatives in the Federal Government to
protect each citizen in all hi6 rights of proper
ty, according to the guaranties of the Consti
tution, and that they should admit new States
into the Union, demanding only that they pre
sent a republican form of government.
