ISHAM G. EAEEIS,
PECEKDC FIRE COHPAHY OF CHARLESTON,
The arrival of a committee of the Phccnlx
Hre Company of Charleston, S. C., in our city,
-with their beautiful engine, in advance of their
t eMenr-members, with the view of partaking in
the celebration of the completion of the Mem
phis and Charleston Railroad, is suggestive of
interestisg thoughts. We are thus made to
feel how intimate is the connection with our
sister city on the Atlantic seaboard, how much
stronger are the ties which subsist between our
own virgin city and thjcbtraTrous and enter
prising sons ofCbSxIeston. "We are made to
i"eel likeneihbors and friends whom not only
terest aad destiny, but also art and enter
prise have combined together to unite in sym
pathy, affection and attachment, which no ru
ture circumstances can sunder or divide. As
the atssien of the Phcenbc and its gallant men
In to single in one common stream the waters
of the Atlantic and the Mississipppi, so may
the higher mission be evolved from this of com
xsiBgliBg and riveting together the warm affec
tions and the chivalrous feelings of the sons of
South Carolina and Tennessee, and especially
of the citizens of the two cities which stand
upon the shores of -the one and upon the bants
of the other!

Hakkis, in 1850, on the compromise measures,
in which he expresses the opinion that the
Missouri Compromise was "void for the want
of Constitutional sanction," and inasmuch as
it had been " acqalesced in for thirty years by
the people," he should therefore " regret to tte

tween the violation and repeal of the Missouri
Compromise, or any other measure. Gen.
Hakms might very well, as the respecter of a
compromise which had been "acquiesced in for
thirty years," deprecate its violation, and yet
might consistently be willing to see the same
ttneojuHufional measure repealed, whenever a
practical issue should arise, demanding that it
should be erased from the statute book. Hence
Gen. Harris was consistent both in his sup
port of the Utah and New Mexico bills and of
the Kansas-Nebraska bill.

quinine is extracted, which, at $30 per quintal
for 36,614, quintals, produces $1,098,130. Cof

For the Utopias Appeal 1
"Who shall be our next Coneiessman?"
Without pretending to canvass the claims of
any one, we simplyask the question, having
seen frequent paragraphsand sometimes long
strictures on that topic, " who is best and who
shall be?" The effort of some of those com
municants is made to fix tkt man within them
selves, and by uninstructed proxy, to bring him
forward by a conventional form, and then to
hurl him before the masses, crying, " take him,
he is good, we know what suits you better than
you do." It reminds me of a scrap of English
history "when the tailors of a certain street
in London, in a remonstrance, styled themselves
" the English people ; " or, again, an old Pro
fessor of medicine used to tell an anecdote of
an amusing specimen of humanity, whom, upon
one occasion, he met with at a watering place.
He was a spindle-legged, cadaverous specimen,
with enormous feet and hands, while bis dome
of thought contained less dimensions than the
contents of the hull of a cocoanut. This per
verted anatomy approached the learned doctor
and with gravity said, "I learn you belong to
'the profession,' and I feel kindly towards 'the
profession,' being, indeed, myself of 'the pro
fession.'" "Of what profeseion?" mildlv
inquired the Doctor. "Well," replied he. "I
might say the miscellaneous medical profession,
that is," he continued, " I am agent for the sale
of Dr. Beckwith's pills."
Now our memory has & mischievous habit of
reproducing this miscellaneous medical gentle
man whenever we hear it dogmatically pro
claimed that this or that one mutt be nomina
ted, without consulting the proper sources, or
that fundamental principle, " vox popxili vox
Dei." And shall it always be succumbed to by
the healthy masses permitting this miscellany
of odds and ends, and through their multitudi
nous exponents newspaper advertisements
to dispose of high political distinctions with
that cool nonchalance that characterized the
devil when disposing cf the .kingdoms of the
earth. If I understand the sense of a Demo
cratic Convention especially such an one as
should convene at Somerville, Monday, the 4th
of Mav next it is to select a suitable person
age to unite the party and its well wishers at a
coming election, thereby choosing their lepre
sentative to act and speak for their wants and
wishes, &.C. The counties representing this
District are Madison, Haywood, Hardeman,
Fayette and Shelby. All must send in their
respective delegations and then confer, taking
into consideration the man and his ability and
availability, without fear of brow-beating in
fact, really divesting themselves of any obliga
tion to Mr. Anybody, for the Democracy exacts
no preferences but such as are invested in each
and every voter,vhether he be from Madison,
Haywood, Hardeman, Fayette or Shelby. It is
to our country we owe all preferment, not to
men. If any aspirant should deem that the
party owes him preferment, to the neglect of
their own success, then he is not a true Dem
ocrat, but one who loves his own success bet
ter than his parties. Instead of the political
patriot you have in him the professed politi
cian, and which class of public men the exi
gencies of the present times ignore. The time
is upon us, when we must sacrifice all personal
prejudices for the country's good. The Dem
ocratic majority of this District is small, and
should party lines be strictly drawn, it might
favor the opposition. Consequently thii is no
time to gamble with our consciences, or to be
swerved from our duteous path. Let us choose a
man who shall be chosen our nominee by a cool
and dispassionate conference. For a hasty a nd
dogmatical conclusion will only insure defeat.
So sure as delegates go therefrom any locality,
crying "ours is the man," he and he alone we
go for, irrespective of any other choice which
a different delegation might desira, it will beget
confusion, and confusion is not at this time
, . .
We cannot be too firm and unwa
vering. It is to this which we owe our extra
ordinary prosperity a prosperity, under the
circumstances, which may be quoted as in
disputable evidence of the true dignity and
honor of our present Administration, and to
which we are indebted for a progress in the
march to greatness without precedent, or ex
ample, and on which we rely for a'radiant fu
ture. Wc must stake our hopes and fortunes upon
right without robbery and moral purity without
venal prostitution of the masses, and then we
can feel that our reliancetis upon a support which
quivers not in the gale, and is fixed firmer in
its foundation by the storm. Circumvallated
thus by an impregnable wall, the braying of
asses is not to be imposed upon us for the horn
cf Joshua, and they may howl on without in
the slightest degree disturbing our equanimity.
And let us get our faces like a flint against the
.machinations of all opposition, though they
may frequently change their mode of warfare.
We snail never be found wanting in exposing
their bypocricy. BRUTUS.

tTo the President of the Smote and Specter of the
lloute ef Jlepretentatiret:
The undersigned, petitioner, desires most
respectfully to call the serious attention of the
respective bodies, over which you preside, to a I
practice prevailing to a considerable extent
with the practicing attorneys at law, of this
State, by which, in many instances, great in
justice is done to parties litigant, and a deep
wound is inflicted upon the honor and bearing
of the members of the legal profession. The
evil complained of Is that attorneys become.
by agreement with their clients, interested In
the result of the suit in which they are en
gaged, contracting with them to receive as
compensation for their services one-half or
some other reliable proportion of the amount
recovered. Taj effect is, that vexatious and,
often, malicious -suits are instituted and indus
triously prosecuted, the attorneys throw their
personal influence into the scale, and, in doing
so, they enlist in their behalf such associations
as they may' be connected with, social, reli
gious, masonic or political; they arouse preju
dice, excite strife and ill blood in the commu
nity, and direct them in the channel of wrong
-and injustice. Goaded on by the promptings
of self-interest, they condescend to do many
things unworthy of their profession and dis
creditable to them as gentlemen, hunt up and
procure improper and corrupt testimony and
thus pervert the ends of justice.
Your petitioner has been made, in one in
stance, the victim of this system, and in an
action sounding alone in damages where the
parties desired peace and were readily satis
fied with what was reasonable, the attorneys
took advantage of this disposition for adjust
ment to practice and effectuate a most shame
ful extorsion. Your petitioner is now no more
interested in this miserable game than any
other citizen, but for the good of society, to
remove temptation out of the way of honora
ble men, to suppress, as far as practicable, all
unnecessary and vexatious litigation, and to
discountenance contemptable petty-fogging;
your petitioner would most respectfully urge
upon your honorable bodies the passage of a
law, making it penal to receive such fees in
future. And your petitioner will ever pray, &.c,
WELDON JONES. .
V-e, the undersigned, concur most heartily in
urging upon the Legislature the passage of a
law suppressing the practice complained of in
the foregoing petition.

Failure of the Americas Paris Banker, Green,
From Pari Cor. of Com. Advertiser
A painful sensation was produced among the
American population of Paris last Friday, by
the announcement that tbe American Banking
house of Green & Co., had failed. This house,
which for many years has done an immense
business, and enjoyed the entire confidence of
the public, was established by Mr. Wells, of

Frrm the Washing too Union
We learn that the Secretary of the Interior,
Hon. Jacob Thompson, has nearly completed
the arrangements with reference to a vigorious
prosecution of the Pecific wagon roads recently
provided lor by congress, ine country is loot
ing forward with eagerness to the completion
of these great highways across our continent,
anu toe prompt ana energetic measures auopteu
by tne interior Department wilt secure melr
early construction and aid in a rapid develop
ment of our boundless Western domain, with
its rich pastures and its fertile valleys.
in connexion witn tbese roads, tne great
overland mail, which is soon to be "put
through " under the auspices of the able Post
master ueuerai, win serve to bind more nrmiy
tbe bonds of union with California, Oregon,
and wasnington, and put forever at rest all
reara or tneir estrangement irom our great
family or states, ine successful issue or tnese
two great national projects win retlect tne
ntgnest credit upon tne present Administration,
Tbesn projects are to be placed in the hands of
able, practical, and energetic men, wbo are
peculiarly well qualified for the arduous and
even dangerous duties assigned tnem.
ine gentlemen wno nave been selected for
superintendents are W. E. Nobles, of Minne
sota, wbo will construct the road from Fort
Ridgely to the South Pass, and return over the
Platte road to Fort Kearney. Mr. Nobles was
already the superintendent of the former
road, appointed under tbe late Administration.
Air. JM. t . JMagraw, of Missouri, wbo will
construct the Fort Kearney and Honey Lake
road as far as tne Uitv Jtocks
JoOn ii.irlc, of California, who will complete
mis road from uity kocks to Honey Lake vai
ley, working from tbe California side.
The road from El Paso to Fort Yuma has
been placed under the supervision of Mr. James
a. Leacn, or lexas.
The appointment of superintendent of the
road from Fort Defiance to the Colorado by a
clause in the bill was left to the President, and
it is understood that the Secretary of War, to
whom it was assigned, has tendered it to Mr.
Beale, and that the service of the camels will
be employed by him on his division.
For facilitating the business which these
roads will necessarily create, the Secretary of
tbe Interior some time since established a new
bureau for the more immediate charge of the
same, and we are gratined to learn mat Mr. A
II. Campbell, civil engineer, has been placed
at its head. This is a highly important and
responsible position to be conferred upon so
young a man, and is only accounted for by his
admirable fitness for the place. Mr. Campbell
combines the highest scientific attainments
with a personal knowledge of the topography
or me country tnrougn wntcn tnese roads are
to be opened. He has been connected with two
of the Pacific railroad surveys across the con
linent the central or Albuquerque route, and
me route near tne iZA parallel from Sa.it Diego

The estimation i:i which Mr. Campbell's ser

may be understood by the fact that he had lust
been selected by Lieut. Parks, designated to
run the Is orth west boundary, as engineer of the
expedition, which appointment, under other

North Carolina History Gen. Ambrose Etiniey.
We clip the following article from an ex
change, which may be of interest to the nu
merous descendants of Gen. Ramsey, who re
sides in this country:
Among other distinguished heroes and pa
triots that figured conspicuously in the war of
the Revolution, in North Carolina, whose ex
ploits have been either forgotten or barely
mentioned in any history that we have seen,
wis Gen. Ambrose Ramsey, of Chatham coun
ty. He, in company with two brothers, named
Matthew and John, emigrated to America an
terior to the war, and were of the noble band
of Scotch-Irish who, despising tyranny, be
came so efficient in harrassing and destroying
the foes of their adopted country.
On his arrival into the State, he, purchased
possessions at the "Falls of Deep River,"
erected extensive improvements, and nuilt what
for a great length of time waB known as " Ram
sey's Mills." Having married the widow of
Matthew Drake, of Nash county, he was here
quietly living in the enjoyment of wealth and
the bosom of an interesting family, when the
tocsin of war against Great Britain was rang
turouguout tue colonies, nnng every patriot
bosom with revenge against their foreign op-
pressors. Ramsey, in consequence of his stern
republican principles and position in society,
when the danger became apparent, was made
a General of militia, and most worthily did he
wreak vengeance on the Tories that so exten-
gively infested his section of the country, and
was more feared by the cut-throat Fanning,
probably than any other man in that region of
