XOBTH AIABAHA AKD "WEST TEHNESBEE.
One of thoie magic influences which inpor-
taat lines of railway exert upon the relations
of contiguous communities, we are now daily
experiencing here, since the completion of the
.Memphis &k1 Charleston Railroad.
North Alabama and West Tennessee infringe
upon each other almost at the Southeastern on
gle of the latter, and the Northwestern portion
of the former. Yet the mass of our people
have been accustomed to view the Northern
counties of Alabama as a distant district, with
which intercourse and intercommunication have
almost heretofore been forbidden on account of
the rugged nature of the roads to be traversed,
the hills to be climbed, and the swamps to be
waded through, on the way thither. The conr
mercial business of North Alabama has hither
to been carried on principally with New Or
leans, the circuitous Tennessee river being the
channel of coBBunication.
SaeWcsly an ire rail is iaid dawn to connect
the two districts, so as to bring die extremes of
each within one day's travel. The metamor
phosis is complete. In one week, nay one day,
the entire relations between the people of each
are revdJutioaized. Huntcville and Memphis
break up their distant civility tad shake hands
as neighbors. An anxiety is manifested on the
part of the citizeas of both to learn the good
and bad pointi of their new neighbors. A
brotherly feeHeg is enge&derod as though a
cemsioB interest aiii destiny belonged to them.
Crowds of citizens of each are daily seen in
the streets of the ether. In short, all the es
tablished relations between near and influential
neighbors bein to be recognized. Mutual
smetiities, reciprieal trafEkin;and an endur
ing friendship begin just at this point, and all
who lire in the two sections unite in blessing
the san who invented railroads, and especially
the men who first set on foot this great and in

Sir: By an act pas;U on the 3d of March,
1S57, Congress has confirmed the selections of
swamp and overflowed lands granted to tne
several States bv the act of Concrcss, approved
September as. Ib50, heretofore made and re
ported" to this eoe, and "so far as the same
shall remain vacant ami unappropriated, and
not interfered with by ?.ny actual eettlement
under any existing law of the United States,"
it is required that the same shall be appioved
and patented as soon as practicable.
The same law continues in force, the act of
2d of March, 185, and extends its provisions
to all entries and locations or lands claimed as
swamp lands made since its passage.
Bv this law all of the contested cases re
maining unadjusted are at an end, and we are
precluded from entertaining further objections
against the approval of aty lands heretofore
selected and reported under the law; the States
are entitled to all of their selections remaining
vacant and unappropriated, and not interfered
with by any actual settlement; also to tne pur
chase money in case of cash entry made since
the passage of the act of 1850, and an equiva
lent in lanus for the tracts located with milita
ry bounty land warrants or scrip.
livery enort win oe maue to promote iue
sneedv adjustment of the swamp grant in con
formity with this recent legislation,, and the
selections in eacn btate win DC acteu upon in
the order ot their receipt at this office. The
lis'.s necessary to enable the States to derive
the benefits of the acts of 2d March, 1855, and
3d March, 1857, will be prepared and transmit
ted without delay.
As tne act ot lSSi continues in torce, tne
nrior law of 2d March. 1855, the provisions of
the latter regirding the issue of patents to the
purchasers, etc, will be considered as ninoing,
and the same will be withheld in case of prior
sale by the State untilihe execution of the re
lease therein mentioneuT It will be necessary,
therefore, that we should be advised ot all
sales of swamp lands made by the State since
the passage of said act of 1855, which report
should be made within ninety days from the
date of the law of 1857, in order that we may
be enabled properly to discriminate.
The necessary lhtoKnation relative to tne
form of the report, etc, will be found in the
letter from this office of March 9tb, 1855, and
it is respectfully suggested that you give the
earliest possible attention to the matter.
With great respect,

An Unsafe Levee. The Napoleon Plan
ter, of the 27th inst, says: "The leveebelow
town is reported to us as being in a very un
safe condition. The late high water under
mined the banks in the vicinity of the cross
levee to such an extent as to cause several hun
dred yards to cave in. The city authorities

"' Ohio proper' need have nothing to say
about affairs in 'the Reserve.' We are pecu
liar people, running altogether to priests, puri
tans and pumpkin vines. Oberlin is to be the
capital of our new State, and Giddings is to be
the Brigham Young of the concern. Women
are going to vote and men are going to vote,
and men are going to part their hair in the mid
dle. Pantaloons will give place to pantlets,
and white men will not be allowed to run at
large without their papers. Our railroads will
run under ground, and will make connections
only with Canada and Kentucky. The Consti
tution will be construed strictly, and all men
will be considered equal and some more so
depending on their color."

Another reason why I recommend this policy
to the Opposition is the possibility of drawing
to the support of such a candidate a goodly

that it would be a shallow tricK throngh which

need be no fear that the " intense Americans "
would revolt at being transferred by their lead

to the Bupport of a professed Old-Line
Whig; for they coukl easily bo made to under
stand that the object of the little trick was not
to reinstate the old Whig party into power, but
only to put down the Democracy. There could
also be an understanding that the Old-Line
Whig chosen as leader was to throw all his
weight and influence into the scale of the
Know-Nothing balance. The victory, tbo, if
by possibility a victory should be gained, can

by their obtaining several small notes or drafts

former can be much more readily inad.e availa

collisions in narrow cnanneis, are so common
above Memphis, and particularly above Cairo,
as to cause all travelers tofeel that locomotion
by steam is becoming seriously dangerous.
Wrecks are encountered almost every twentv-
flve miles ; and a passenger, when stepping on
a boat, as often anticipates a sand-bar, or a
snag, or a collision, or a log, as a sale arrival
at his journey's end. But a day or two since,

a skiff, got on board with his wife and daugh

risk being picked up by some lucky boat, to

Twenty-four hours since, many of our citi
zens were rendered extremely anxious as to the
fate of friends on the Nashville packet Clint
which rumor said had blown up.
We ask, Is tritre no remedy Jor all this?

river alone would build a railroad from Mem
phis to Louisville. This may seem startling
but to one who has noticed the records of dis
asters to steamers, flat-boats, keel-boats, &c,
it is not so.
The larger portion of the commerce between
the Ohio Valley and New Orleans, would pass
over the Memiihisaud Ohio Railroad. It would
he transported from Louisville to Memphis, and
thence take water to rew Orleans, or it would
be shipped by steamer from New Orleans, and
take the road at Memphis. Our merchants
would thus do the receiving and forwarding of
an immensely valuable business that now passes
bv them; sucu a commerce as would soon be
come more valuable than any other, because
s very large. The arrivals at our hotels, too,
would be by thousands instead of hundreds
weeky . for every train that would come down
from Louisville, and every packet that would
come up from iew Urleans, would nave tnei
hundreds on board, who would take a meal, and
spend an hour, a day or a week at Memphis.
The truth is, we regard this Memphis and
Ohio Railroad as a sort of pet of ours.
We did some of the first work years ago
when the press had to throw itself into the fight.
It is now, a une qua non with our citizens, be
cause they all see its vast importance to Mem
phis, and its magnitude grows upon us, as we
contemplate its Influence upon our prosperity.
We see it stated, by reliable authority, that
four-Jifths of all the railroad travel in the union,
is on me various roads leading out west, from
the Atlantic seaboard towards the Ohio valley,
tne upper Mississippi and me lates; and it is
certainly of great moment to us to make such
connection in me suortest possible time.

the Nashville and North Western Road near
the corner pf Carroll, Weakley and Henry,
exactly one hundred and twelve miles from

The late decision, or, rather, the series of de

States in the Dred Scott case, is of more vital
importance in reference to the settlement of
the slavery question than any or all the other
acts and proceedings upon this subject legisla
tive and judicial, State or Federal since the
organization of the General Government.
This supreme and final tribunal in the inter
pretation of the constitution and the laws, has
decreed that negroes or men of the African
race, whether bond or free, are not citizens of
the United States by the Federal Constitution;
that the;ordinanee of 1787 was susperceded by
the Constitution; that the Missouri Compro
mise of 1820 was an unconstitutional act; that
slaveholders have the right to carry their
slaves into the Territories ; that the legal con
dition of a slave in a slave State is not aiTected
by his temporary sojourn in a free State; and
that Congress has no power over the question
of slavery in a Territory, and cannot delegate
any power over the subject to the Territorial

of these decisions cannot be over-estimated

FirBt, the supreme judicial tribunal of the
Union decides that, according to the Constitu
tion, negroes arc not citizens, whether free men
or slaves. In other words, ours is the white
man's Constitution, and tbe negro, as a citizen,
is absolutely ignored. Tbe consequence is, that
all the Constitutions and laws of the free States
elevating negroes to the rights and privileges of
citizenship, are null and void; for,in this author
itatively declared meaning of the Constitution,
tojbe a citizen of a State is to be a citizen of the
United States, inasmuch as the Constitution
expressly ordains (Art. '4, Sec. 2,) that "the
citizens of the each State shall be entitled to all
me privileges and immunities of citizens in the
several States." This decision, therefore, set
tics tbe old difficulty between Massachusetts
and South Carolina concerning the free colored !
citizen cooks'and seamen of the forinr, treated
only as dangerous free negroes upon entering
ports of the latter State. The decisionis against
Massachusetts and her free colored citizens,
and in favor of South Carolina.
The decisions concerning the Federal ordi
nance of 1787 and the Missouri Compromise of
1820, establish the full validity of the Kansas
Nebraska bill, as the true constitutional policy
in regard to slavery in the Territories. TJie
decision concerning slaves in iramifu through
a free State, or the temporary sojourn of a
Southern slave in a free State, settles the Lem
mon case, and all cases like that ot Mr. Wheel
er, of North Carolina, whose slaves, at Phila
delphia, were so unceremoniously spirited
away ; and in all such cases the supreme decree
is decisive of the slaveholder's constitutional
richts to his slave property.
But tbe most important of the supreme deci
sions, in a political party view, is the judgment
that Congress has no power, and can delegate
no power over the question of slavery In the
Territories. This decision, at a single blow,
shivers the anti-slavery platform of the late
great Nortnern itepubiican part' into atoms.
The policy of legislating slavery out of Kan
sas and the other Territories of the Union by
C6ngress will no longer avail theni. Congress
has no power in the premises. That is settled.
What was in donbt is in doubt no longer. The
supreme law is expounded by the supreme au
thority, and disobedience is rebellion, treason
and revolution. The Republican party hence
forth must choose between submission and rev
olution loyality or treason tfflhe government.

would be the judgment of a maioritv of those

avail nothing. The only alternative to the

factions, is loyality or treason, submission or

affecting scene that took place on the parting
of the daughter from her father, mother and
sister. It was a painful one Indeed, and would
have drawn tears even from Dean himself.
Mrs. Dean bore herself with remarkable for
titude, and under the peculiarly distressing cir
cumstances which surrounded the case showed
herself to be a woman of no uncommon mould.
Dressed in a black satin dress, gray mantilla
and black sick bonnet, with a reticule in her
hand, she emerged from the house of her

his wife arrived, and when he heard her foot

excitement atd nervousness strongly depicted
in his countenance However,he did not make
any outward manifestations of either joy or

ed a mechanical " very well," and remained
silent and thoughtful.
After an absence of half an hour the bride
signified that she was readv to receive her hus
band, and Dean was conducted up stairs where
an affecting scene occurred between the pair.
The meeting seemed to affect the young lady
deeply, for it required half an hour's repose ere
she was able to take her place in the carriage,
and proceed'to the lodgings engaged for her
husband. But the time passed quickly away,
and at 9 o'clock a carriage containing a lady
and gentleman, might be seen emerging from
Little Jonei; street, and, wending its way

VI buuu lUlib III we uisiance.
We undenitand that the newly married couple
will spend a few days in this civ. until the
necessary preparations can be made for pro-
good advice and assistance in his new career in
life. The bridegroom had an interview with
hia lawyer, Mr. Spencer, before he started for
his lodgings, and received instructions how to
act should any further effort be made to sepa
rate him from his wife. In reply to a para
graph which appeared in one of the morning
papers, Der.n desired our reporter to say that
he did not tell the Rev. Mr. Hartfield that Miss
Boker was a domestic when he came to be
married, but on the contrary he told him noth
ing concerning her situation in life, for the very
reason that no questions were asked him in re
lation to that point by the clergyman.
Misstatements Corrected. We are au
thorized to say that the reports in some of the
morning papers of yesterday, stating that Dean
and his wife were left together for some hours,
is totally false. Mr. Harry Bertholf, on leav
ing the Supreme Court, aa the authorized cus
todian of the young lady, proceeded to her pa
rents' residence, and informed the father (Mr.
Boker) of the order of the Court. The scene
there was very painful: the father, mother,
and the eldest daughter, (Mrs. Funk,) became
greatly affected and shed tears. Mr. Boker
told Mr. Bertholf that from the kindness and
courtesy he and his family had received from
him, he had no hesitation in placing his daugh
ter in his charge, and he bowed to the mandate
of the Court. Mr. Bertholf said he would re
turn at 8 o'clock, and convey her to his own
residence. At 8 o'clock, Harry returned to Bo
ker's, where the parting scene was such as Is
seldom witnessed. The mother begged the
young wife to come home to her again that
evening, and she pledged her solemn word that
she would not do so, and Mr. Bertholf, in an
swer to the entreaties of the father, promised
that he would not permit Mrs. Dean to leave
his presence or the presence of Mrs. Bertholf
during her stay at his house. This promise, as
every one who knows Harry Bertholf will be
lieve, was most implicitly fulfilled, and Dean
and his wife were not for one moment left to
gether alone. Dean anJ bis Desdemona both
thanked Mr. and Mrs. Bertholf for their at
tentions, and the lady was returned home to
her father's residence in West Twenty-second
street, about 11 o'clock.
