GEH. HABEIS' COMPETITOR.
The Eagle and Enquirer think that Gen.
Haskxll could beat Gen. Hahris at least three
t boa sand votes for Governor. The count is
quite asodest for our neighbor. Why not say
five &T seven thousand?
The Nashville Patriot, however, will not ad
alt that Gen. Haskell ii eligible, because he
has not resided within the State seven years
immediately preceding the election, according
to the requirement of the Constitution. We
are glad of It for the sake of Haskell, be
came he can now enjoy the consolation of be
lining that he eotM hare been elected by at
least three thousand votes, whereas if he had
the opportunity of making the race, he would
soon learn how far behind it is possible for a
man of geaius to run.
The Eagle will have to start another candi
date. We hope it will be merciful and fall
upon a man wio koews how to bear disappoint
ment with philosopfey and composure.

Col. Murray, Buncombe, North Carolina, in
1802, is rapidly extending over the whole South
Submarine Telegraph Cable Across the
Susquehanna. The Magnetic Telegraph
Company on Wednesday last put down two
English triple wire cables across the Susque
hanna, opposite Harre de Grace, for the pur
pose of securing a permanent and uninterrupt
ed connection of the wires at that point. Mr.
Kendall, the general Superintendent of the
Company, iurnisnes the following particulars
" They were shipped on the company's reel
from the Atlantic dock, Brooklyn, aboard the
schooner "Empire" bound for Baltimore. Af
ter discharging freight, she proceeded in tow of
tne Ericsson steamer "atry yaeen," ror Ha
vre de Grace, leaving Baltimore at six o'clock
on Wednesday morning, and arriving at her
destination about noon.
"As soon as one end of the cable was secure
ly fastened to the shore the boats started the
reel working admirably. Buoys were dropped
at proper intervals, -with the first cable to in J
cueate us locality mat tne two might be laid at
a proper distance apart at the bottom of the
river when sinking the second. The whole was
laid in about one hour and a half after leaving
this side. About eight thousand feet were
employed, and laid as near as possible in the
route of the railroad ferry. The wires were
tested with two cups of battery and found in
Southern Credit. Aletterfrom New York,
in the Philadelphia Inquirer, speaking of the

From the Ssufh, on the other hand, prompt re
turns lire aide, and the credit of ocr friends

probably on account of the large yield of cottrn
daring the last two seasons and the unusually
high prices realized therefor."
For the Memphis Appeiy
, Oxford, Miss., April 1, 1857.
Messrs. Editors: As the sure perusal
which your paper commands from almost every
Democrat in North Mississippi makes it a con
venient and desirable medium of communica
tion, indulgence is asked through your col
umns to bring to their notice some principles,
which justice and the highest interest or me
party seem to demand; should pnsvail in mak
ing a nomination for Congress in the First Dis
trict, A discussion ot some or meBe princi
ples has already been inaugurated through your
columns, and each correspondent, while he dis-
cusses'sorae principle, generally makes his de
ductions apply favorably or unfavorably to
some particular man. An entire departure
from this course is not promised in this article,
but an emphatic disclaimer is made of any in
tention to allow a feeling of personal malevo
lence to cause any harsh or unjust reflections
on the character or claims of any man whose
name has been spoken of in connexion with
the position. All the privilege claimed is to
give a reason for the peculiar fitness of a par
ticular man; to canvass the claims of this
man and to remove any supposed objection to
his right or fitness for promotion. When a po
litical party has been triumphantly successful
in one contest, and at the time of selecting
leaders for another which does not promise to
be fierce or vindictive, or even to require any
unusual talent in those who are to direct its
movements, they are too apt to be unduly in
fluenced in making the selection by the sup
posed service, (oftimes wonderfully magnified
by partial friends,) which some man has ren
dered in a past conflict. Nothing has so strong
a tendency to awaken sympathy, and secure a
remuneration for services, as for him wfio
wishes to awaken the one, or secure the other, to
produce on the minds of those from whom they
are to come, the impression that he has suc
cessfully performed some arduous and impor
tant work. This is as it should be so long as
no other consideration enters to modify the
operation of the principle. But when a con
vention is called to make a selection of party
leaders there is an important consideration,
which no amount of past volunteered or need
less or fruitless labor, however assiduously
performed, ought to betray us into a forgetful
ness of. This consideration is, who is the man
when placed in the position, that has the char
acter and ability to be equal to the demand on
him? If past service alene is to be the
ground upon which the honor is to be awarded,
then mediocrity or even inferiority of talent,
coupled with that plodding disposition which is
its almost Inseparable concomitant, is as high
a recommendation as the most brilliant talent
or scholarly and statesmanlike attainment.
We would not be understood as claiming any
lordly magnificence forthesehigh qualifications
when presented, but only suggest that where
the character of a constituency is represented
bv a single man It is important that he should
combine them with the necessary exertion to
reflect credit on these whoa he represents. At
a time when great Constitutional questions are
discussed in the halls of CoHgress, and when
Southern men know that an extensive and en
lightened discussion has always and will al
ways result in benefit to their section, is thers
not enough State pride to make us send there a
representative from Mississippi who will be
able to sustain himself and make a character
for his State ? Whilst we are speakirg of the
principles which should govern in selecting
who has done signal service for his party in a
neighboring State removes to Mississippi; if
he be a man of ability and zeal, whose nice
uc ut a. j ,
and unobtrusive sense of propriety has pre
vented him from thrusting himself or his ser
vices on his party, shall his claim be entirely
discarded because be has not served to Ion; as
some other man of inferior qualification? Let
the voice of that party which has always had
an eagle's eye to descry, and a lion's courage
to suppress the incipient demonstration of a
prescriptive spirit, answer an emphatic no.
The full and entire success of the Democratic
party seems to require that one other principle
should be observed in conferring nominations.
The frequency with which Mr. Pierce was
called upon by the use of the veto power to
check a dangerous tendency in the last Con
gress to appropriate money for schemes of in
ternal improvement, is well known to the coun
try, and even elicited from the eccentric Thos.
H. Benton the remark that "the President
should keep blank vetoes by him to veto the
acts of this d d Congress." We think it de
sirable to select a man who belongs to that
strict construction school which is in favor of
using every power delegated by a State to the
Federal Government in subjection to the limit
ation, and in faithful furtherance of the ends
for which it was delegated. We think that a
man should be chosen who, when the lavish
and apparentlT inconsiderate expenditures
which always mark the executionof any work
undertaken by Government for its citizena, are
proposed when roads are proposed to be built
at-a cost sufficient to pave them with silver
dollars and stock them with locomotives of
gold will demand the explicit written author
ity to do these acts. In short, we think a man
should be chosen whose action on the questions
of constantly-recurring federal legislation
internal improvement and tariff will be in ac
cordance with the ancient doctrine of the Dem
ocratic party. There is a man in North Mis
sissippi who has all these qualificatons, and
combines with them an acknowledged ability
which eminently fits him for a Congressional
Representative. Nor has this gentleman been
wanting in zeal or disposition to do service for
bis party. No one who heard him in the last
Presidential campaign was not struck with the
candid and statesmanlike manner in which
every question wasdiscussed. He is known to
be a man possessing a mind well trained to
analytical, systematic reasoning, and a man
who will be thoroughly impressed with the dig
nity which ought ever to attach to such a po
sition. Despising many of those means to which re
sort is bad to gain a reputation for political
digladiation, his object will be to vindicata
truth, secure the ascedency of sound principles
and add character and, weight to Mississippi in
the halls of Congress. That this gentlemen lives
in the same county with a distinguished ex
member of Congress, whose well earned merit
and vigilant integrity have recently arrested
Mr. Buchanan's attentionand caused him to be
called to Washington is a fact which will cer
tainly not be used to his disadvantage by liber
al minded men. When political parties are
nearly equally divided and contests are acri
monious and vindictive public discrimination is
sharpened, and men of real merit are much more
apt to secure an appreciation and reward of
such merit. The Democratic party in Missis
sippi not having an opposition sufficiently for-
midable to keep its zeal aroused, is likely to fall
into a stale of indifference as to the ability of I
men who represent It. A danger is sometime.
to be apprehended from such a difference and
inactivity, of greater magnitude than that re
sulting from a threateningpposition. The
course of the gentleman to whom we have re
fered as a suitable man for the Congressional
arena, has been that of consistent devotion to
the Democratic party, and it is because he is
known to be a man of ability and merit, which
is always modest and unobtusive, that we haver
thought proper to present his claim. If we
have been successful in carrying the statue, for
those acquainted with the original we need not
write (he name en the pedestal ; for those who
are not we have only to say that his character
eagerly invites inquiry, and to arouse this in
quiry, the name Lamar is inscribed.

Carrollton, April 13, 1857.
Messrs. Editors: Before I had formed

notices of that gentleman while a candidate
for the Legislature. Since bis election to the
office he now holds, I have known him well;
and it affords me a' pleasure to say that his
merits were not over-rated in jour columns.
Our Circuit Court is now sitting, and many im
portant cases have been tried, and are still
pending on the State docket ; and he has proved
himself to be equal to every emergency. He
is, unquestionably, a man of the very first or
der of intellect, and what is better, professes
incorruptible integrity. He enjojs the unqual
ified confidence of the community as an able
and efficient officer, and I hazard nothing in the
prediction that if he lives a few short years,
he will stand at the head of the bar.

Fit the llcmj-his Appeal.
Brownsville, April 13th, 1857,
I notice an article in the Eagle and Enquirer,
dated the lO.h inst., from this county, over th
signature of ( Wash." He says it has been
surmised that the object was to secure the nom
ination of Bradford to Congress, and if Currin
is nominated it will not be because he is avail
able, &c Now, I wonder if this is not the same
"Wash" that is always very busy every time
a convention is held, hoping be will be noticed
Was it he who refused to support Smith and
Thomas, for the simple reason that the party-
did not nominate him? Is it the same " Wash "
who is always making threats because they
don't nominate somebody close about him? If
this is the same " Wash," it has been surmised,
that he is so anxious about it that he would be
willing to bold office under an Abolitionist, and
as usual he will be overlooked ; and we may
expect to bear some more threats and big talk
soon atter me nominating conventions are over.

Washington, April 8, 1857.
Jll iB"a mistaken idea that the decision pf
the S'ipreme Court in the Dred Scott case at
all affects the question of suffrage in the States.
The right of the States to regulate suffrage is
unquestioned and cannot be assailed. The
right to confer citizenship and the privilege , of
exercisirg the elective franchise are two dif
ferent and distinct things. The former rests
with the Federal Government, the latter with
the States. Thus a man may be a citizen of
the United States, and yet, if the State imposed
a property quaiincanon as me condition or a
vote, he lackit z that, could not vote. On the
other band, the States confer the privilege of
voting upon aliens wno ere not citizens ot me
United States, and upon negroes, who can
never be. The only difference is that one is
competent to become, bv com Divine- with cer
tain conditions, a citizen ot me united states,
wliile the other can by no possible means reach
ir mere isanvm ncrin mis amerence. men
the Dred Scott decision does not affect the right
or a btats to give a negro me power of voting.
But l apprenend mat mis uinerence is imma
terial. 1 be question is not wnat a man may
be, but what he is. In this light, the alien and
negro bom stand ante, as no citizens. The
Federal Government, if it can interfere with
the right of a State to confer suffrage upon
one, it can also wim rererence to me omer.
I am of opinion that it can do neither. It is,
however, an offense against the spirit of our
Government, if not against me letter of its
Uonstltutlon, lor me states to use tne power
reserved to them to such an extent as to confer
the right of suffrage upon other than citizens
of the United States. At all events, let the
polls not be offended by the odor of a negro,
with a ballot in his hand to be placed by him
in the box, there to have as much weight as he
wno possesses me maiesty oi a citizen and

MORE POISOXIXG ATTEMPTED.
from the K. T. Journal of Comueice, April 8.
Macao, January 29, 1857. All foreign bus
iness is not only suspended, but entirely at an
end, both here, at Hong Kong and at Canton.
Since my last letter, the greater .part of the
Western suburbs of the latter city, in which
were situated nearly all the warehouses, shops,
&c, concerned in the foreign trade, have been
consumed. Of the total destruction of foreign
factories, you will have heard by my last let
ter. The Chinese compute their losses in
houses, go-downs, thops, i:c, at over 4,000
buildings up to the present time; and in mer
chandise, and the value of the above property,
they state their losses at 10,000,000 of dollars
which is probably not far from the truth.
We cannot of course know very accurately
the damage sustained by the city of Canton,
since the bombardment began, 28th October
last; but as the latter has been kept up with
more or less pertinacity, to within a few days
ago, when the English Admiral retired with
bis forces from before the city, it is fair to
suppose that the Chinese do not over estimate
the loss in life, when they state it at 70,000
of all ages and sexes. Everything favors this
calculation, as it is well known that the streets
are exceedingly Larrow, the population of
great density, the means or the power to move,
within the reach of comparatively few ; while
the custom of closing the gates of every street,
during a period of public danger, creates im
mense loss of life by any sudden movement
of the populace.
To say nothing of all the other distresses
which have been riveted upon them and which
are Inseparable from such a condition of things,
the total destruction of the trade of the place,
the interruption to all the daily avocations of
the people, &.c, are very oppressive in their ef
fects. Still, up to the present moment, the
Chinese do not make the slightest concession.
The Vice Roy, Yeh, in all his official documents,
is ag firm at this moment as he was when the
" Arrow " lorcha was seized by his officers on
the 8th October last. The people, too, are even
more bitter and exasperated against the Eng

At Hong Kong, a most comprehensive scheme
to poison the foreign community was planned
by a China baker named Esing, who mixed a
large quantity of arsenic In the bread baked for
the consumption of the 15th inst. Upwards of
400 persons were poisoned ; many had most nar
row escapes from death, the sufferings of all
were dreadful but providentially, it is not as
certained that a single person died. The quan
tity of arsenic was too large, so that immedi
ately after eating the bread, sickness and nau
sea followed, and the poison was thus ejected
from the stomach. The effects, however, are
many, and up to the present time may still be
Since then another attempt has been made,
but on a much more moderate scale, through poi
soned oranges, a quantity of which (about 5,000
in number) was introduced into the colony.
It failed, however in this instance, as too little
of the poison bad been absorbed by the fruit,
although two deaths took place, and they Chi
nese. The Chinese have a methodof poisoning
oranges, by piercing them in the first instauce
with minute holes, and then placing them' over
the vapor of the poisonous substance which
they then caused them to inbaie.
Attempts have also been made to fire the set

The consequence is, that the whole community
is living in a Btate of complete and most painful
anxiety and alarm. There is a large force
there, afloat and ashore. Still the mode of
circumventing their enemy, by the Chinese, in
always hidden and secret; and while every
street anu every pass is guarueu, eimer poison,
sudden Kidnapping, or assassination, strikes
terror throughout. In the latter sin the Chi

The Connecticut Election,
The Washington Union, in commenting upon
the result of the election in Connecticut, says:
Such a change in Connecticut was to be
expected. The" New England people, on the
whole, are a law-abiding people, and, unless
aroused and heated by fanaticism in some of
us protean rorms, and goaded in us excitea
moments to positions and deeds that they will
repudiate in its more calm and better moods, a
majority of me citizens in mat section or me
la&d are loyal to the Constitution and to the
laws. For the first time, the decisions of the
supreme judicial tribunal have decided that the
great principles of the Democratic party are
the principles of the Constitution. The mo
ment this decision was judicially made and
known, the loyalty of the people displayed it
self. Agitators, Btock-jobbing politicians,
men who get their bread and coals by abolition
harrangues, do not relish the settlement of
those questions. But the people of New Eng
land at once indicate their desire to submit to
the decision of the tribunal they aided to es
tablish, and to which decree they promised to
The vote in New Haven is peculiarly signifi
cant. It was here that the clergymen of New
Englant inaugurated their active participation
in the late Presidential campaign. The North
Church, Rev. Mr. Dutton's, was opened to the
effort of providing Sharpe's rifles for Kansas,
and amid great excitement, with Henry Ward
Beecher for auctioneer, some hundred Or two
of rifles were subscribed for; beie the bells
were tolled on the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska
bill ; here one of the old clergymen of
the city expressed his readiness to put on his
epaulets and march to the scene of war and
fight itout; and here all the Wilsons, Wen
dell Phillipses, Garrisons, and Burllngames
wasted their oratory for weeks and months
past. But the law-abiding people have chosen
to roiiow me steady andate. iigbts of the Con
stitution, and leave the new-fangled wreck
lanterns to those who choose to follow their
So real is this change in the New Englaid
mind, and so observable is it, mat we mink mere
are few clergymen who now think it worth
while to beat themselves against the granite
rock of constitutional truth. Rev. Dr. Chee
ver, of New York, has the unenviable notoriety
of standing almost alone in his attacks on the
Supreme Court. He has employed the last four
sabbams in me most indecent assaults upon
the court, and has indulged in the most intem
perate and abusive epithets that could be em
ployed in relation to a decision lie has not read
nor seen or facts be has not taken in consid
eration and does not know, and upon reason-
ings of which he is yet profoundly ignorant.
And yet his conduct has presented a striking
illustration of the change that has taken place
in the public mind ; for so outraged has the re
ligious mind become by the tirade from Chee
ver's pulpit on the Lord's Day, that the reli
gious friends of Dr. Cheever have felt called
upon to make an apology to the public for his
conduct, and to this end, the New York Ohter
rer, the great Presbyterian paper of the coun
try, has published an opinion that Dr. Cheever
is not in his right mind; that he has dwelt so
long on the subject of slavery that he has be
come a monomania, and is at this moment in
need of medical care and attention.
Greater reactions are to be expected as the
public mind cools, and the falsehoods of the
enemies of the Democracy are exposed.
Not one of these predictions have so far
been verified, and the people know it. The
election of Mr. Buchanan has given repose to
the country. We will only add that the vote
of Connecticut indicates her appreciation of
her Democratic sons who have done so much to
honor her in pubic positions. The home of the
honored Secretary of the Navy cannot long be
recreant to the great political doctrines he has
so ably advocated and upheld in the high pla
ces of the nation. Governor Toucey furnishes
a new proof that stability and firmness in the
defense of truth are sure in the end to be ap
preciated. Cormpondcnce cf tbe Baltimore San.
Washington, April 10. The work of rota
tion goes on very slowly, but very surely.
The appointments of territorial officers have
been made to a partial extent. Kansas ap
pointments are disposed of. Next come up the
appointments of ftew Mexico. I learn that
Mr. Reniker, of N. C, has been appointed
Governor of New Mexico. Several other
officers in 'hat Territory are to be selected.
Nebraska appointments are not yet made,
nor have they been considered. No charges
against the present Incumbent have yet been
filed. Among the candidates for tbe office of
Governor is Mr. Augustus Hall, member of the
late Congress from Iowa, General Orville
Clark, of New York; Col. Black, of Pitts
burgh, two others from Pennsylvania, two from
Illinois, and four from Indiana.
To find a suitable person for Governor for
Utah is a difficult matter. It is understood
that Brigham Young is to be superseded as
soon as a proper person aa bis successor should
be selected. Major Ben McCulloch was, in the
opinion of many, tbe best man in the country
for the situation. But he has been appointed
to the Texas marshalship, and besides, his pre
sence there was desired in case of any trouble
on the borders. Mr. Mc&Iullin, for some time
past a member or me House or Kepresenta
tives from Virginia, is mentioned as a promi
nent candidate for the place.

The Connecticut Election. The New
York Journal of Commerce says :
"The great achievement of the day consists
in the election of two Democratic Congress
men where there had been none berore thus
dividing the delegation with the Opposition.
The result is the more gratifying, as Congress
men are the only officers elected who have any
power over the Kansas-Nebraska -Law. either
in supporting or opposing' it. It is also the
more significant, as the most piteous appeals
were made to the people by the Republican
press to prevent such an endorsement by New
England men of a Law against which had been
levelled all the bard names to be found in the
Dictionary, and against which three thousand
New England clergymen bad hurled their
anathemas. And still more is it remarkable,
when we consider what immense gains the
Democrats had to make in order to elect their
candidates. At tbe last Congressional elec
tion, two years ago, the Opposition majorities
in tht different .Congressional districts were as
follows, viz :

"That will do. Seven months more, at the
same rate of progress, will use up what re
mains or the fusion majority. Takinsr the
case as it now stands, tbe four Western coun
ties of Connecticut have fairly breasted and
turned the tide of fanaticism which had swept
over New England, just as New York citv and
the adjacent counties met and successfully re
sisted the same tide within their own borders."

A Victim or Unrequited Love Strange
FANcr. George B. Smith, a man about twen
ty-eight years of age, and a native of Massa
cnusetts, died yesterday at the iNew Tork Hos
pital, from Epilepsy, brought about by intern
perance. Coroner Gamble held an Inquest
upon me Dody, when tacts were revealed which
gave the case a tone 01 the most marked ro
mance, and made the listeners to the tale in
voluntarily exclaim "truth Is stranger than
tictlon." The history ot deceased's life was
found to be full of interesting and exciting
events, i-pnnging irom a nighly reipectabli
family in New England, Smith was well edu
cated, and fitted for the bar.
When he had attained his majority ho be
came enamored with a lovely young lady,
(whose name, perhaps, it would not be proper
to mention,) and after an ardent suit his love
was returned, and the young man was full of
bright hopes for the future. But his dream of
bliss and happiness did not last long. The lady
was coquettish, and loved dearly to flirt with
omer gentlemen, tier conduct made Smith
desperate. Jealousy took possession of hi
soul, and the green eyed monster " promote
him to'pursue a revengeful course towards th
most favored rival He challenged him to
mortal combat, but the request was coldly de
clined. Soon afterwards the rivals met. an al
tercation sprang up, when Smith drew a pistol
and fired it at his antagonist, but happily
without any serious effect.
Well knowing that he had set the laws of
his State at defiance, Smith fled from Massa
chusetts, and escaped to New York. Whil
here, the fugitive pursued a most intemnerate
course lof life. :He drank incessantly, and

A Wedding jx Quaker Umer-Tendom.
At 10J o'clock yesterday morning, fourth
month, eighth day, the Friends' Meeting Housi
in Orchard street contained a fair and expect
ant congregation, assembled to witness a aa
cred and glorious consummation the occasion
being nothing more nor leBs than the marriag
of a Quaker lover and a Quakeress beloved. It
was not a " Quaker Meeting" in silence, how
ever, cut we win leave gossip, and come to
the sublime and more sacred realities:
On the lowest bench at the most reverential
end nf the church sat the parents of the parties
to be married, and when the house was so full
It could hold no more, the two bridal parties
appeared in quick succession, and sat down on
the lowest benches between the old folks. The
first bride had six bridesmaids, dressed in
white silk and tarleton, very plain but very
elegant all with good-siz?d hoops. The
groomsmen were in full dress. The bride her
self was robed in white satin, edged with er
mine, and wore an elegant little hat. with roae
colored ruche. The second bride had only two
maias in wmte. one wore white sillc with a
mantle and hood, and a white lace veil rich
and simple at the same time. The bridegrooms
were uoiu uresseu in oiacK.
After a short time Friend Dickerson, th
minister, Knelt down immediately behind tb
first bride, all the conzregatlou standint? whil
he offered a prayer to the Throne of Grace, all
were again seated, when the first counle acain
arose and clasping hands, addressed each other
a few words, which could be heard only by
uiose iinmeuiaieiy near mem, oeyondme words
" good husbind," " loving and faithful wife,"
ana go on.
Two Friends, in black, next broueht a table
whereon was a roll of parchment, an inkstand
and pens, and the newly married pair signed
tue parcument, me contents 01 which we did
not see ; but the clerk of the church soon
mounted the highest seat and read the parch
ment aloud, something which informed the tin
iniated in brief that Henry Laurence and Car
oline White, of the city cf New York, having
giceu 10 marry togeiner, ana no impediment
appearing, had risen in open meeting, promised
and signed their names to the contract.
The parchment of the second couple, whose
ceremonies were the same as the first, showed
that Richard L. Nicholson, ot Philadelphia,
and Elizabeth Van Hoosen, of ibis city, had
uiarriea logeiuer, in me same-manner as the
nrst couple. Alter a few moments, a very be
nevolent looking Quaker gentleman, in the
highest bench, rose and requested the audience
to oe seated wniie me parties went out. Th
newly married retired with their trait.s, and
the buzz of voices that followed was all th
more striking from the previous silence.
This was a Quaker wedding of tbe most ap
proved pattern ; and the ceremony may be pro
nounced a beautiful one. God bless those who
