We had the pieasare-cf an Interview jester
daj wilb. Hon. Wh. EHarjtcb, of Missouri,
who Worms as that it Islhe desi;n and desire
of .the Company, who are prosecuting this
work from -St. Louis to Pilot Knob, to extend
the road as rapidly as practicable in the direc
tion of Meaphis, and ultimately to make this
citr the terminus of their road. Anotner com
pany has been organized under the general law
of incorporation of the State of Missouri, to
extend this work conditionally to aiempnis
But the origiflallron Mountain Railroad Com
panv will take the work in hand at a proper
time and make the desired extension, hoping
for f attire aid from the citizens of Memphis.
"We are assred that the Company is com
posed of some of the most solvent, reliable and
energetic men In Missouri, and that they are
animated by a proper spirit and determination
Thev well know that a connection w ith Mem
pblsSrIH immediately connect their road with
n-.th oTnat Sonthern ports, and that an
anowt of traiEc and travel will thereby be
pressed over their line, which will make it one
of the best payig roads in the Union. A con
nection with Memphis, then, is the great point
ultimately aimed at by them. They have men
at the head of their enterprise, who will neither
flag r falter HBtil their work shall be com
plete, aad tha last rail laid to this city.
-"Thls explanation is made now to prevent the
impression, which we fear was made by an ar
ticle In these columns during the past winter,
relative to the enterprise of the gentlemen who
came to Memphis, represeatisg an entirely dif
f erreBtlcompany. We think it probable that the
article "in question left the impression that the
Iran Mountain Railroad Company designed to
' terminate their road at some point on the Mis
slssippi above Memphis. This, we are as
Bared, is not tbe fact.

" Dear Sir : la consequence of the withdraw
al of Garrison, Morgan &. Co., of the steamer
Texas, from the Ne w Orleans trade, it was ren
dered necessary that I should visit New York
and make some arrangements relative to th
transportation of emigrants from Southern ports
I arrived here from New York this morninir,
haviBg succeeded in effecting what I conceived
to be a satisfactory arrangement. I proposed to
tae above named gentlemen to raise in Charles
ton, Sirannab, and adjacent cities from 500 to
1.098 menjjf the means of transportation were
iwrtsaed them from the city of Charleston.
They have agreed to furnish me with a steamer
at that point for the conveyance of reinforce
xrents, and in a few days I shall establish my
headquarters at that place. I design raising
the requisite number of men and accompany
-neta mysetr to tne scene of action. In estab
UshiBg a rendezvous at Charleston, it is essen
Hal that I should be provided with all the means
necessary to the arming, and equipping of a
large body of men. I desire to go in force suf
ficient at one time to strike a decisive blow and
put an end te the war. The recent cowardie
of TitBS.-"-i' thing almost incredible has de
( tennined me to take the matter in had myself,
- aBd I so advised Gen. Walker by the steamer of
the 23d, from New York. I have urged, too,
upon James Walter, Esq., of Nashville, the ne
cesshy of making every exertion possible to
further the prosecution of my parpose. Now
is the critical time of our fortunes, and it must
atal thall result favorably. The funds raised
in NasbviMe Iiave advised him to remit to me
forthwith at Charleston, that I may be enabled
to commence operations in earnest. I desire
also tbat you will do the same. I trust really
,that you have been successful in obtaining
irom tae citizens of Memphis the evidence of a
liberal and just appreciation of the struggle in
WMcb we are engaged, and of the social and
political cosejuences it involves. I look to
TeBneosee for material aid,' as well as Bym-
pathy for its gallant son, and I should blush to
knew and feel that it had proved faithless to
Us mqh and holy obligr.tions.

SECOXD (MISS.) C0SGEEESI0NAL DISTRICT.
For Uie Jlexaphli Appl 3
Buncombe, Pontotoc Co., Miss.,
April 2, 1857.
Messrs Epitobs: Having noticed an ex
tract taken from the Pentotoc Examiner, in
which the relative claims of Judge Bennett
anil Ren. Davis are presented for a seat ia
Congress, pardon me for adding my endorse
tnentto the sentiments therein expressed. Th
position assumed by the Examiner in favor of
the re-nomination of Jude B. will no doubt
meet the concurreLce of the Democratic party
generally throughout the District. Whatever
claims Gen. Da vis may have upon the Democ
racy of the District, and however high they
may esteem him as worthyjof their confidence,
a,WinvWniyW a"fiigtt"of5er7lrntl unjer
a different state of things, the Democratic
party would delight to do him honor. The
nomination of Gen. D., or any. other distin
guished Democrat, at this time, would imply a
disapproval of Judge Bennett's course in
Congress. If a bold and fearless advocacy of
the rights, honor and interests of the South,
coupled with his untiring energy and zeal, as
displayed by him for the last two years in pro
moting the best interests of his constituents
and the whole country, entitle a man to the
confidence of his constituents, then Judge
Bennett certainly deserves it. The writer of
this has had the opportunity of personally!
witnessing rae emciency ot Judge B. as a
Representative and the prompt manner in which
he always exhibited his talents and energy in
oenair ot tne wants of his constituents. Is it
sare or sound precedent unceremoniously to
thrust aside the old war horse of Democracy
wno nas tor thirty years nobly and defiantly
battled for its principles, upheld its banners,
and whether in private or public life, in th
halls of Congress repelling the bitter and un
justifiable assaults of the ranting Abolitionistg
or visionary Black-republicans upon the insti
tutions of the South? Ia every station and
upon every occasion he has exhibited that
firmness of purpose and steadfast devotion for
principles which but few can equal and none
surpass. His great experience, high legal at
Uinments and eminence as a jurist, fitly qualify
him for an able and efficient Representativ
for the Second Congressional District of Mis
sisslppi. During the exciting canvass of 1855,
Judge Uennett received the Democratic nom
mation for Congress, when the dark wave of
Know-Nothingism threatened to engulph th
.ucmocrauc pany or luissirsippi. As our
chosen chief and standard bearer, nobly and
gallantly aid he defend our policy and princi
pies, triumphantly refuting every charge brought
against us, exposing in its true colors the intol
erance, bigotry and erroneous tendencies of th
intense American or Juiow-Nolhimr nartv
Hence it is, Messrs. Editors, without in th
least disparaging the claims of -Gen. Reuben
Davis, or any other whose name is or may b
mentioned in connection with the Congressional
nomination, that sheer and simple justice de
mands that the nomination be again tendered
to Judge Bennett; but on the other hand
should the Convention see proper to dissent
from the views here presented, and Gen. Davi
or any other good Democrat receive the nomi
nation, none would yield more readily or sup-

unanimously adopted) for public Information :
Whereas, the Legislature or the state oi

penalty, for violation or. Hneauuiiujuiouiiiucuk.
id. An act proniumng aDj owucr ui, uic
of slaves from punisning mem wuu muic iUm
thirty-nine lashes for any one offense, with a
penalty for violation, fine and imprisonment.
r..rlr,d. That we. a portion of the citizens
of the State of Mississippi, do regard the first
act as inconvenient, unnecessary and intolera
ble that we reg?.rd the renewal of this law,
and the addition of imprisonment to its penalty,
an an insult, an iniarv, and a direct infraction
of our liberties as a free people.
Resolve I, That we regard the second a gross
abuse of legislative power, an insult to the
tlavtholJer. iniurious to the slave, and emi
nently calculated to injure the South; that it
admits tne raise cnarge oi uie nepuuntau
party, that the slaveholders of the South, as a 1
mass, are cruel to their slaves, and lhat legis

7?frf. That in the mauasfment of our
slaves, we regard the right to correct them as
indispensable to our interests as slaveholders,
and that there are laws sufficiently strict to
protect the slave from cruel treatment.
Resolved, That, generally, our slaves are well
clothed, well fed, and managed humanely, and
that the Legislature is eithei ignorant of this
rff or wilfnllf misrepresents the constituen
cy, and, in either case, our respect and obedi
ence is roneitea.
Rnolved. That we are determined to disre
gard both laws, and if the attempt is made to
punish us, or any one or us, uiai we m icwm
such attempt per force, and that we justly
throw the responsibility of what may follow
resistance upon the Legislature, who are the
Hesolvea, mar. we invite our ieno-cincuD,
irrespective of party, throughout the State, to
unite with us in resisting these laws, which are
melees, insulting and oppressue.
The Poisoning Case. The jury of inquest
into the probable causes of the sudden death
of Mr. and Mrs. Goff, of Attala county, ren

came to their death by being poisoned with
arsenic administered by some pcrsen unknown."

A Russian Grand Duke on Board an
American Frigate. A correspondent of the
New York Journal of Commerce, writing from
Genoa, gives the following account of a visit
of the Russian Grand Duke Constantine to the
frigate Congress :
"The Grand Duke Constantine arrived here
on the 20th nit., two days ago, on his way to
Nice. He is at the head of the Russian Navv.
and a fine squadron of five or six men of war
some or tnein two deckers were lvins- in the
harbor awaiting his arrival. A message was
sei.t by him to our Commodore that he would
be pleased to visit the Conzress. and a irrariH
demonstration was made in receiving him All
tne men of war in the harbor, Russian, Sardin
ian and American, manned yards and nonrpH
forth vollirs of loud welcome as he appeared
in sight with his staff. He visited several of
the Russian ships, and also one of the Sandinian.
ine scene in tue Conzress was auite bril
liant. All tne oUicerawere In full dress, the
frigate in the most perfect condition, and the
men the finest looking crew in the Mediterra
nean, ine urauu uute was accompanied bv
staff, glittering all over with stars, and or-
i i l : . il s .
ders and brilliant plumes, though he was him
self dressed m a plain frock coat, set off with
a blue ribbon over the shoulders, and a few or
ders on his breast, without sword or any other
appendage, except a pairof dark mounted spec
tacles, through which-his bright eyes were ev
idently viewing all that passed around him.
His gentleness, his courtesy, his freedom from
affectation, his manifest enjoyment in seeing an
American ship, and his warn cordiality, won
the hearts of all. 'He is a gentleman,' said
one, 'though he is a Russian,' and I could not
but reel as 1 looted upon mm and neard him
converse, that such a man might do much to
bring Russia up to a point of civilization and
freedom worthy of the age in which we live.
In leaving the ship, he bersed the privilege of
having 'Yankee Doodle' from our band a del
icate compliment to them, as well as to our
country, as they had just been playing the Rus
sian national air."
''pointed General Lewis Cass, of Michigan, to
be Secretary of State tnatis, minister or for
eign Affairs and chief of the Cabinet. There
wa a time when such an act would have been
received in England as a most serious demon
stration. General Cass is as well known to us
hv renutation as one of our own politicians
From the time beyond the memory of most of
us he has been in bngltsh eyes tne representa
tive of the great Western Democracy, with all
its prejudices anu animosities, ine uenerai
is said to be seventy-five years old, and during
the term of his political life, he has been a
Minister at home, a representative in Europe,
and for a number of years Senator from the
State of Michigan. But whether at a bureau
in Washington, at the levee at the Tuileries, or
amid the clearings of Jus Western home, he
has ever been the vrhemenl denouncer of Eng
land, her ambition, her hatred of liberty, her
designs to thwart the development and disturb
the peace of the United States. The life of
General Cassfhas been nearly contemporaneous
with the acknowledged independence of his
countrv : he remembers America thinly popu
late ami a second rate Power: the struggle of
1812 found him a voung. roan; the long war of
abuse between Tory England and the touchy
vounrf Democracy of America is still fresh in
his recollections; and, like many a man of
strong feelings and deeply rooted prejudices, he
boundary, Oregon and Texas, the voice of Ren
Cass was ever violent, and his prophecies of
mcuKiuie war went near to cause tneir tullil
ment. At that time there existed a kind of in
ternational soreness, which seems now to have
passed away. Scarcely a copy of any opposi'
huh )iaici in a-aris was puoiiineu witnouc 1
tirade azainst the "perfidious Albion. ' and th
American press was not behind hand in accu
sations and invectives. Ireland was mad with
misery and sedition; Canada was just becom
iag irauqmiizea alter a long fever of diseon
icnt. consequently ueneral Uass and hi
speeches excited no little curiosity. He was
supposed to express the feelines of the maiori
ty of his coantrymen, and to indicate the like
Iihood or a new alliance of France and Amer
ica against the mother country. But those
days nave passed away. The British Empire
has seen discontent and disorder vanish from
its bounds. AH important points of difference
oeiween England and tbe United States hav
been settled ; the communications between th
two nations have increased so wonderfully a
iu nidKu mem ior an commercial numnaea :
single country ; a better feeling has come into
existence, founded on a clearer understanding
of each other's circumstances and institutions.
uur relations with our nearest European neigh
bor are of the most cordial kind. The sneech
es of Gn. Cass and his school have therefore
lost most of their importance. We feel that
much of such language is mere popular orato
ry, much of it the promptings of a restless and
suspicious temper. The warlike tone is, we
believe, not one fo which any large section of
jjuimuaua m any country now responds, and
iuuoc iiuo s-.iu auopcic run tne cnanceoi bein,
looked upon as crotchettv or antinuateH.
Yet, as Gen. Cass is known throughout the
world for his Anglophobia, and known for lit
tle else, it may be tho 'ght that Mr. Bucinnan,
in selecting him for the highest office next to
ms own, noes not give nopes or an administra
tion inenuiy to tnis country. On this point
c tan utruiy pronounce an opinion, it would
certainly seem that the new President is desi
rous to inaugurate a very national and inde
pendent policy in respect to American affairs,
ui, hi jcaoi, iuuave iiie creuit or tne intention.
But there are, we believe, domestic reasons fm
the President's choice, with which foreign re
lations nave notnmg to do. Mr. Buchanan re
presents the double Democracy of the North
and South, and both these have to be conciliated.
The South, which hasforyears openly preached
the doctrines of nullification and separation,
wished to force on the President a man repre
senting its most extreme v.ews. Mr. Wa ter.
in preference to his own choice, Mr. Howell
Cobb, a politician well spoken of for abilitv
1. . . i .. . .
anu uiuuciduun, uut too conserviuve and too
little disposed to espouse a restless and violent
policy to meet the approval of the Southern
DisunioniBts. The President did not wish to
give up Mr. Cobb, and was determined not to
have Mr. Walker, but he was equally unwill
ing to commence his career by offending a large
part of his supporters. He has, therefore, con-
rerrca tne otnee on ueneral uass, a man popu
lar with the Democracy of both sections, but
too experienced nd too patriotic to give any
eucouragcmeni to exotusiveiy aomnern views.
Mr. Cobb, we are told, ij appointed Secretary
of the Treasury, with the intention that he
shall succeed General Cass as Secretary of
State. Genera! Cass is of an age when the du
ties of office are likely to be felt as a heavy
burden, and it is anticipated that when the
Cabinet has been brought into working order,
and'the demands of party gratified, he will
i'n jur tue retirement or private
life. The internal policy to which the Presi
dent has given his adhesion by this double ap
pointment is that which the late Daniel Web
ster established by the measure of 1850. Both
with a few more fresh men.
Should those who have hitherto been the pre
tended friends of the fillibuster movement in
New York and San Francisco, as w II as
New Orleans, now abandon it, it would eem
the almost certain precursor of Walker's de
struction, and our last advices from all these
nnarters seemed to indicate a strons probabil-
ity or sucn a result, tnougn it- is Bam uere uiai
a steamer from New Orleans was to have
reached Greytown about this time with aid for
tte San Juan river party.
Thus our readers will perceive mat tne
whole matter of the success or failure of Walk
er and his forces i as much in the dark as
ever. We earnestly hope that when our next
semi-monthly mail goes to the United States,
we may be aDle to give our readers the account
of decisive strufreles at all points. Jspinwall
