In this city, at 1 o'clock a. m., yesterday,
Mr. William Mtkatt, for nine yearB an at
taekt of the Appeal Office, with an intermis
sion of a few mostliB.
Mr. Mtkatt was born in Knoxville oa the
29th of Septaaber, 1S4 and was consequently
in the thirty-third year of his ae. He was
the bob of the late Mr. C. a ad of Mrs. Harbi-
ette Mtjtatt, of this city, and leaves behind
him an affectionate mother and brother and a
large circle of warmly attached friends to
mourn his premature loss.
In all the relations of life the deceased was
a most exemplary young man. As a business'
man he was always at bis pest, and discharged
the complicated duties of Cashier and Book-!
Keeper in this establishment with scrupulous
fidelity, integrity and accuracy.
As a son and a brother he was all that the
most enlarged definition of these terms can
comprehead; datiful, affectionate, toiling and
As a friend there are hosts, who claim him'
as such, that will bear witness to his disinter-
ested 'kindness, his uniform affability, his un
shrinking deration and his unaffected sim
In parity of motive and genuine unselfish
bsb, in all that makes up the true man, and in
unbleaisAed integrity, the deceased was a
model for all who wish to walk the rugged:
paths of Hfe with a soul unrontaminated byg
its corrupting currents.

from our immediate circle of friends and ac
quaintances, is suddenly summoned to meet the
inevitable doom of all, that we fully realize
the dread uncertainty of life's tenure. We
daily see the hears and its attendant train
moving in mournful measure to the grave, and
think but for a moment of the melancholy spec
tacle, because the funeral car bears a stranger
to the tomb. Bat that stranger corpse is not
to all a stranger. Heart-ties, as strong and
tenacious as eternity itself, have been rudely
snapped asunder. Tears, as true and melting
as ever be4w the good man's bier have fallen
here. It is this truth which should bind all
thiswhich everteaches us tor.snect Jr
affliction as sacred and holy, whenever we wit
ness .ts sincere outpouringg. It is this which

struction of innocence and peace. It is this
which sbeuM point us the way to be Christians'
in all otir thoughts, words and deeds.
The deceased was of a peculiarly child-like
and gentle nature. In his affections and inter
course he possessed the delicacy of woman
combined with the frankness and fearlessness
of man. Sch , ooe must necessarily haveH lrul tne a"n" conclusions
endeared to him all who were thrown into fa Jof ar&ument UadB f" fxP,ode e
miliar iuUrconree with him. It is believed
there is not a human being who cherishes to
wards him the saalleet malice. These quali
ties constitute the good and true man. Mourn
ed he must be and is.
Peace and honor to his memory.
His funeral will take place this morning at
J 3 c'clock, from the residence of his brother.

rDIETBIBUIION OF THK PEOCEEDS OF THE
9 PUBLIC 1AKD3.
a In discussing the question of the propriety
: of distributing the revenue arising from the
sale of the public lands, the South Side Demo
;j In the first place, it is admitted by all Clay
iand Webster admitted it that there is no
j constitutional right vested in Congress to dis
tribute among the States the revenue arising
-from customs. Now, it is a fact of history
liioli nnna rnn frain4tr. that 3 larfr nronrr-
fjtion of the public lands has been purchased by
the Federal Government with money accruing
to the treasury from this source. We put it to
every honest mind every mind which is capa
le of appreciating the force of an argument,
by what process of reasoning, by what politi
cal alchemy does it come to pass, that money
which could not constitutionally be distributed
among the States anterior to its investment in
lands, can be relieved of its shackles by being
converted into lands, and. subsequently, again
turned into silver and gold ? Can the simple
fact of its going through the landi, and coming
back in its original shape, destroy the consti
tutional barrier to, its distribution ? If so, our
faculties are not acute enough to discover the
distinction. We submit it to the advocates 01
nthe scheme, as a question which it will require
g more than sophistry to surmount.
Arain: When the door is once opened, wnen
the Legislatures of the different States (for it
should be borne ilistlnctly in mind mat me leg
islatures, and not the people, would have the
management and control or me quota; com
mence to receive these federal donations, there
would be a constantly increasing reliance on
this fund for schemes of internal improvements,
for purposes of corruption, &.c, and the Tesult
would be that they would continue to increase
their demands until the odious system of raisirg
revenue for distribution would be inaugurated.
It would end inevitably in antagonism between
the Federal and State Governments, upon every
'question except that of ' collecting and disburs
ing revenue. It would reduce the i ederal Uov
rnment to a mere tax collector for the States.
This state of things would be subversive of the
Union itself, and therefore, the Constitution, to
which the Union is indebted for its existence.
But we take higher ground. The public lands
either belong to the States individually and
separately, or in their collective and federated
rapacity. If the former is true, that is, they
belong to the States separately, then the Gen
eral Government has no constitutional control
over them, and cannot distribute them. Each
State has Its own laws for the maintenance of
ts individual rights, aod for the protection of
P!?' For th Federal Gov
rnment, apart from its appropriate functions,
to assume the right to rule the States in relation
ty their separate atd exclusive property, would
be to centralize all power, and reduce our beau
tiful but complex system to a consolidated Gov
ernment. And, farther, if these lands or which
is the same thing, the proceeds arisitg from
their sale, are the individual property of the
States, what right has Congress to appropriate
i dollar of this fund in times of war? But we
know that euch has been the practice of Con
gress from the foundation of the Government.
. .. i . a i.iuu;i:
fallacy mat me puuiic lauus uciuug iu iuc
States as separate communities.
If not individually, then the public lands be
long to the States collectively, or in their fede
rated capacity. Now, the question is, whether
Congress, as trustees for the States, would be
warranted by the Constitution, which is the
instrument containing its powers its chart to
uide it in the execution of its trust in dis
tributing among the joint owners their propor
tions te part of the proceeds of the sales of the
oublic lands. The Constitution expressly de
:lares that " the powern not delegated to the
United States, nor prohibited by it to them,are
reserved to the States respectively or to the
people." Now, wo challenge the opposition
press to point out in the Constitution a single
lelega ted "power, authorizing Congress to dis
tribute amone the States the proceeds of the
public lands. There is no such grant no such
luthonty vested, and, therefore, me power
claimed for Congress is, in the language of the
Constitution, "reserved to the States respec
tively, or to the people." Here, it would seem
fcj-.o us, is an end to toe wnoie controversy.
rhere being no power vested in Congress by
the Constitution, which is the suprema lex of
the land, the whole scheme of distribution,
consequently, falls to the ground.
Before concluding this article, already too
long, we must dispose of a favorite illustration
to which Know-Nothing prints have recourse
n urging the propriety and justice of diBtribu
lion. The illustration is mis : "bunpose A., Ji
tnu v. una a laiui w ua nuiuu am iuiuiuuu,
md D. is appointed trustee ; would it not be
1 n - i- t. - 1-. .1 :
ompetent for D., as trustee, to divide out to
;adt one of the proprietors -his proportionate
part of the land and proceeds arising there-
Hfrom?" We answer, under ordinary circum
stances, it would ; but the cases are not anal
ogous, as we win proceed to snow, in me
case of the public lands, there is a joint con-
ern for specific objects, with a common agent
to carry it into effect, for the joint interest of
the concern, without any authority to distri
bute for individual use what is intended for the
Rbenefit of the joint concern. Hence, this plau
sible and favorite illustration, which serves no
ither purpose than to deceive and mislead the
mwary, falls where it ought to fall, irretrieva
ily to the ground.

James McCarthy, of this State, has been
appointed corresponding clerk of the Navy
Legislative Districts. The following
statement from the returns in the Presidential
election last year, says the Trenton Journal, of
last Saturday, may be serviceable at this time,
as it will show the Democracy throughout the
State what is required of them this year to
have a majority in the Legislature. Although
the Democratic party has a majority in the
State of nearly 7,000, it will be seen that we
only carry a majority of one in the Senatorial
Districts and three in the House. This is ow
ing to the unjust and unfair legislation by which
the State was Htnry-mandered- several years
since. By judicious management on -the part
of the Democrat, not only these Senatorial
and Representative Districts can be carried
again, but there are several others that can
also be carried, in which the majorities f or our
opponents are very small, and consequently
should be classed among the doubtful. At
such a time and under such circumstances, it
behooves the strong Democratic counties to be
mindful of their strength and not suffer it to be
frittered away upon rival aspirants. It is in
the power of the Democracy to have not only
a Democratic Governor, but Democratic Con
gressmen and a Democratic Legislature.

' "Washington, March 2S, 1857.
Since my laBt, the crowd in Washington has
perceptibly thinned off about three-fourths.
This is owing to the fact that the heavy places
in the large cities have all been dispensed, and
the disappointed hangers-on after' them have
transferred their operations to the locations cf
the Custom Houses, ic, in the high stations
of which, when they were in Washington, they
were wont to place their lazy proportions j but
alas, tbey are found suing for subordinate posi
tions, such as tide waiters, ami if they can't
get them, why a pair of old boots or anything
of that sort will be taken as a favor.
Such is the philosophy of American office

neart but temporarily, and lie but lets a peg
down, and grows less and less extensive in his
demands, until anything Bhort of nothing
The Hon. Robert J. Walker has accepted
the position of Governor of Kansas. He will
not go out before the middle of May, if be
goes then. If be does go out, the prospect is
not very great that he will remain in the post
tion long. He accepted it with the idea of
giving it up when he became satisfied that
things in Kansas had assumed so agreeable a
Bbape as to offer no further exigency for bis
services. The Administration desiring to have
a Governor there at once, and it being the ur
gent desire of Mr. Walker that the Hon. Fred
erick P. Stanton, of your city, should accom
pany him to aid him in restoring quiet to Kan
sas, the latter gentleman, after a great deal of
persuasion from the highest sources, has con
sented to leave for Kansas on Monday week.
He accepts nominally the position of Secreta
ry of the Territory, in order that he may, tin
der the organic law, discharge the Executive
duties until Mr. Walker arrives. If Mr,
Walker should conclude not to go, it is under
stood that Mr. SUnton is to be the permanent
Governor, which position the Administration
desire him to be on hand to fill, in the happen
ing of one or the other contingency, that Mr.
Walker does not go out, or that going out, he
gives up his place after a short incumbency.
Mr. Stanton at first pre-emptorily declined the
offer and rather regarded it aa a singular one ;
but the persuasion which induced him to ac
cept it convinced him that it involved a high
compliment to him and a demand upon him for
his services which he was not at liberty to dis
regard. The Hon. Reverdy Johnson consented
to attend to his large practice before the Court
of Claims if he accepted the appointment,
This secures to Mr. Stanton's clients efficient
attention to their interests.
The war which has been waged on Mr. Fof-
syth, our Minister at Mexico, has had no effect
upon the Administration. It regards Mr. For
syth as enc of our ablest representatives abroad.
The treaties submitted by him, have been re
turned with suggestions which will rrmave the
objections to them. When these suggestions
are carried out, they will, no doubt, meet the
concurrence of this Government.

What a humbug this thing of letters of recom
mendation is I Little does the place-hunter
think as he gets letter after letter, and weighs
in his own mind, the particular influence of each
letter, each in itself, thinks he, sufficient to get
me the place, and as he gazes at the chirogra
pby of the autographs and reflects upon the
services of the distinguished writers, that they
are put away In a pigeon hole and not one time

that the same overruling Providence which has
carried my beloved country through so many
perns, win now attend and direct my numDie
efforts for her welfare, and that mv course will
not be prejudged by any portion of my fellow
citizens, in or out of Kansas.
1 understand toat you, and all your U-.binet,
cordially concur in the opinion expressed by
me. that the actual, bona tide residents of the
Territory of Kansas, by a fair and regular
vote, unaffected by fraud or violence, must be
permitted, in adopting their State Constitution,
to decide for themselves what shall be their so
cial institutions. This is the great fundamen
tal principle of the act of Congress organiz
ing that Territory, affirmed by the Supreme
Court ot tbe Unite! states, and iB in accor
dance with' the views uniformly expressed by
me throughout my public career. I contem
plate a peaceful settlement of this question by
an anneal to the intelligence and patriotism of
the whole people of Kansas, who should all
participate, freely and fully, in this decision,
and by a majority of whose totes the deter
mination must be made, as the only proper and
constitutional mode of adjustment.
I contemplate no appeal to military power,
in the hope that my countrymen of Kansas,
from every section, will submit to a decision of
tnis matter by a full and fair vote oi a maiori
ty of the people of that Territory. If this de
cision cannot thus be made, I see nothing in
the future for Kansas but civil war, extending
its baleful influence throughout the country,
and subjecting the Union itself to imminent
I will go, then, and endeavor thus to adjust
tnese umiculties, in tne -full confidence so
strongly expressed by you, that I will be sus
tained by all your own high authority, with the
cordial co-operation of all your Cabinet.
As it will he impossible for me to leave for
Kansas before the second Monday of May'next,
I would desire my appointment to take effect
from that date.
Very respectfully, your friend,
R. J. WALKER.
President of the United States.
New York:, April 3. Washington corres

Washington-, April 3. The Union pub
lishes the correspondence between Lord Napier,
tbe Earl of Clarendon, and Mr. Cass, relative
to the rescue of a great part of tbe British
bark, Tasso, wrecked at Barnegate, by the
crew of an American life-boat. Mr. Fowler,
the acting vice-Consul, at New York, has been
instructed to convey to the widow of Jno. Jones,
one of tbe boatmen .vho periahettin the rescue,
a donation of fifty dollars as a mark of sym
pathy from the British Government.
A subscription had also resulted in the col
lection of a sum sufficient for the purchase of
a small house and farm. Mr. Fowler has also
been making inquiries respecting the relatives
of John Parker, another tioatman who lost his
life, and the rest of the boatmen who shared
in the same danger.
Earl Clarendon instructs Lord Napier to
express in the warmest terms, the thanks of
the British Government, for the timely aid
rendered, and expresses his admiration of the
courage and devotion of the American boat
men. Mr. Cass's letter to Lord Napier says, it is
always a source of gratification to this govern
ment, when citizens cf the United States aie
instrumental in rescuing individuals, especially
citizens or subjects of foreign countries, from
the perils of the sea, and that tbe manifesta
tion of sympathy and gratitude on the part of
her Majesty's government, in this instance is
justly appreciated by the President.
There can be no doubt of the report received
by the Trim, that Canasbad made overtures
to Gen. Walker, as such action had before been
indicated by a let er from Minister Hacinrfa, at
Nicaragua, though tne nature ot the overtures
is not known. Chill eon was always friendly
to Walker, and only awaited a proper oppor
tunity to take sides with him. The reinforce

The removal of Kenaun, Consul at Hong

instructed to carry it into effect, If be Bhall as
certain the truth of the charge, that Kenaun

The Administration have no intention of

As reported before, ex-Governor Bigler, of
California, was appointed to Chili. He was

From the records of the Pension Bureau it
appears that the land warrants issued since the

ed Generalissimo of the allied forces against
Walker, is a native of Honduras. He boasts
of sixty years of age, and is principally re
markable for small size, gray hair, and for
being uniformly unlucky in all bis attempts in
public life. He commenced his political career
as a protege of General Francisco Morazan,
President of the Central American Confedera
tion, who was subsequently assassinated in
Costa Rica. Cabana s was President of Hon
duras in 1854 and 1855, but before completing
his term of office Guatemala fomented a revo
lution in his State, and put a Senator in his
place. .He set out for Nicaragua and arrived
in Granada in December, 1855, when the
Walker-Rivas government was established,
for the purpose of obtaining the assistance of
General Walker and his Americans in re-establishing
what he called "the legitimate govern
ment of Honduras" that is to say, of h'im
self j but Walker refused to interfere in the in
ternal affairs of any other State. Don Fer
min Ferrer, the Minister of Hacienda in Nic
aragua, and other influential persons in Gran a.
da, strongly opposed the leaving of any Ameri
cans on such amission. A night or two before
his departure, Cabanas was in conversation
with Walker, Rivas, and a member of the
Cabinet, when Walker said to him : " We
Americans did not come here aa mercenary
soldiers : we will fight while the country needs
defense, but after that we hope to be still more
useful to Nicaragua as cultivators cf the soil."
This remark made a profound and favorable
impression on the land owners of the country.

From Mr. C. F. Bradley, of Bradlev ii Co.,

tained some particulars of the s windling opera

they had a book of drafts sigaed in blank bv

to the extent of $300,000, bnt many of them
being filled in small amounts the sum obtained
did not go beyond $213,000. Thefollowingare
a few of the transactions effected by the gang.

it of ferreting out the fraud and arresting the

of New York. There are two requisitions for

the other from this State, but tbe present cus
todians refuse to give him up, Mr. Bradley,
however, assured us yesterday he intended to

more to say of this matter. Sf. Xonw Leader,
Death or Ma. Harris, or Alabama. The
Augusta CotMfiitittonatiit, of Saturday, thos
speaks of the death of Mr. Habsis :
" The telegraph announces the death of the
Hon. Sampson W. Harris, of Alabama, at
Washington City, on Wednesday morning the
1st inst. He was prostrated by an attack of
pneumonia, about the time of the adjournment
of Congress, and had been seriously ill from the
time he was first confined to his bed, although
at different times, favorable changes bad occur
red in bis condition, which induced his friends
to entertain hopes of his recovery.
" Mr. Harris was the son of Hon. Stephen W.
Harris, formerly a Judge of the Superior Courts
of the Ocmulgee Circuit, of this State, and was
born in Putnam countv, Ga. After the death
of his father his family removed to Athens,
where he was graduated from our State Univer
sity. About fifteen years ago he emigrated to
Wetumpka, Alabama, and was sooe afterwards
i eiectea i congress jromuie aevemn District
j of tbat State, where he has been retained ever
since, in uongregs ue aas won an nenerabie
reputation, and whilst bis .death is mourned by
a large circle of friends ami relatives in this

plored by the constituency he has served so
faithfully for so loag a time."

SHOT, AKD OTHKKS BANISHiW.
The steiiabost HI. Maty, Capt. Ca obeli, ar
rival yesterday from Council Bluff the first
arrival of the season, from tbat far dtaant
point on the Upper Missouri. Site- was also the
first boat to arrive at Council Biuff City, hav
ing reached that point on March 28th, after 1
forcing iier way tbrougn heavy ice for three
days. We learn from hrr officers', that when
she left tbe Bluffs, on Sunday, the 29th, the
river was rising and still very full of floating
ice. The people of the various towns on the
river aove St. Joseph were destitute of many
of tbe luxuries, and even the necessaries of
civilized life, and eager crowds battened on
board at every landing, for the purpose of pur
chasing portions of her eargo that might be for
sale. Several persons who want up whh her,
had provided themselves for such demand-, and
realized large profits on their ventures. Other
boats have ere this followed in tbe wake of the
5. Mary, and the people along-shore, have
probably prorided themselves with almost eve
rything tbey wanted.
We learn further, that four men were shot at
Plattsmouth, N. T., on Saturday evening,
March 10th, br the orders, or hands of a Vigi
lance Committee, and that five others were
banished by the same party, from Nebraska,
across tbe river, and forbidden to return to the
tetritory, under pain cf death if caught. Their
offense is said to have been claim-jumping.
Tbe officers of the St. Mary inform us also,
that in a private quarrel on the 30th of March,
in the town of Atchison, K. T., one man was
shot. We did not learn his name. St. Louis

Important from Washington.
From the New Yoik Herald
Washington, March 30, 1857. The intelli
gence received by the last two steamers from
Europe is very Interesting as a8eeting our re
lations with France and Eagland.but especial
ly with the latter, and also as affecting the re
lations between the three great maritime Pow
ers and China, it seems that tbe war whieh
has just broken out betwcea the Chinese and
Eitslrgh and in which tte Americans have
taken a small part, is thought to be the brgin
nirg of a very serious struggle in the East,
very different from tbat of 1840, because Rus
sia stand in tbe back ground in support of
China against the pretensions of the maritime
I understand that Lord Napier,the new Brit
ish Minister, has already had two interviews
with General Cass on this subject, and that
cngianu expresses me greatest solicitude Tor
tbe United States to take part in the struggle,
which is considered tbe great contest for com
merce and civilization in that quarter ot the
world, it is understood tbat England and
France being united on the China question are
willing that the United States should have their
belly full of the Monroe doctrine down oven to
Cape Horn, provhletl we appreciated our proper
position on the Ctfi'na question.
In connection witn this matter, I learn a very
curious fact. Lord Palmerston'a administra
tion, after tho late vote in the British Com
mons condemnatory of their conduct in relation
to China, have, you are aware, resolved to ap
peal to the country, and the present Parliament
is to be dissolved and a new election to be had
in the course of a few months. Dispatches
have been received here by Lord Naoier.urrrinff
him to obtain, if possible, the concurrence and
aid of this government in effecting a peace in
uama oy a commercial treaty, abrogating tne
restrictions the Chinese have hereto so rigor
ously enforced against other nations. Lord
Elgin has been sent out as British Plenipoten
tiary, and a French ambassador is to be sent
forthwith to act with him. Lord Napier has
earnestly urged upon the Presidentand his Cab
inet tba selection of Walker as a plenipotentia
ry of the United States, and that he be des
patched forthwith, and has besought Mr. W.,
as a friend to peace, free trade, civilization,
&.c, to consent to go. You will recollect that
Gen. Pierce appointed Mr. Walker Minister to
China shortly lter his inauguration. Unon
being notified of the appointment, Mr. W. pre
parer! a programme oi wuat, in nis judgment,
should be the policy of the United States in re
spect to China, which he submitted to Pierce,
maicy ii uo. uy some means a copy of tne
programme was obtained by Lord Palmerston,
(how it might get me into a scrape to hint,) and
it has been the map by which the British minis
ters have since traveled in reference to China.
The selection of Mr. Walker by the United
States would, it is Bupposed by Lord Palmer
ston, lend to inspire confidence with the Eng
lish free traders of Manchester, Birniingham
acd Liverpool, and weaken the opposition in
the coming election to him and his friends.
l5 We find the following dispatch In the
