A GOSPEi EPISTLE.
"Wat. H. SricrHEXs, Esq., the present Kow
NitirfiMr-Whic- candidate for Coheres 3 in this
District, Wrote an epistle, last summer, on'the
then freadJag contest, which found'.itj way into
the &MjxriJle Whig, altboach ft was originally
writtea for tke private eye of a friend. It is
generally known is Mr. Stephens' own bail!
wick as the " Willow Banks letter," and is
certs Wy the most thorough coispound of pre
Jaiiee, sp!eea and nshaoagers' phrases that we
have eve&seen frn the pen of a man of Mr.
S.'s acteowedged character, talents andds
cation. Tfce reader will see that the choicest
epithets of Grabb street are freely and unstint
ingly saaliad to the Democratic party ad to
Mr. BtrcHANAK. And the writer, as thoagh
not setis6ed at his evasion of gall, coeludea
with the reaark that be " csM fill a fuire at
Tbe whok tenor of this letter is in strict ac
coolaace ith the spirit of that " broad and
coiaarsbeasive platform " ef the Shelby county
" AaMficaws and Whigs" and also with the
Bob. nation piatforia, in that its cardinal point
is hatred to "the party in power7' and a de
teraiatia to fight against it, " if no other
loan ia the Union goes with " its revilers. The
hoarded veaotn of 3-ears of defeat is poared
forth ia aae maoay stream, in order if possible
to bedraggle the garments of the Democracy
with ks owa stain, and interrogatory after in
d err rogatory k launched forth, like the tbander
of Oct Boiia he innocent victim of the
spa rial's veageaace to. annihilate the object
of Mr. 'Stephens' concentrated wrath. After
all Hie kaow-Kothing candidate's "tsJio'i"
at.d an his iaterjctHrea. adjectives andepi
thets, he ooaatless thoaght Uie qaestion would
occur to the reader " who KBled the Democra
cy," aaA that the answer could readily be
made, that Wm. IL Stephens committed the
Itloodydeed. Hot K'is true, lie verthelees, that
the Democracy survived the dread blow the
" poor, silly south," sustaining it with but one
dissatiag State, aad that the " trickster,
voathofcocV, trtamrr'iaoral coward, parasite,
the Sattorer of Jackson and the slanderer of
Clay," so rose above the the ebullitions ef the
Willow Banks writer as to occupy the seat
of Washi.mton, Jackson, Sec., and to ra!ly
the confidence of a nation of freemen.
The Democracy, too, can well afford to look
with laiitereoce upon the chaste expressions
as applied to them, and eves to smile with pity
upoa the blind malice which applies to themJ
soch epithets as "the rascals," "wicked
wrenches," &c, inasmuch as their coarse and
policy were triumphantly sustained and vindi
cated by the people of the Uatoa, and by foar
teea, oat of the Sfteeii slave-holding States.
Down," says the Whig-Know-Nothing can
didate, " with this moaster." " Down with
thisioai, false tcockery ! this veiled prophet of
KhoraesaB." "Down with this stupenious
iapostare." Mr. Stephens was not so wise, in
Ms wrath," as the Welch, wizard, who foresaw
that he migbt call up spirits from the vasty
deep, hat they would not come at bis bidding."
He cried oat, with wizard-like enchantment,
"Dawn with the monster, the false mockery,
the stapeadoas imposture, Democracy;" but
Democracy weald not " down at his bidding,"
bat rather rose to its zenith of power and prti-
tigt, while his execrations were reverberating
along the isoaatains of East Tennessee. From
this example, ear Know-Nothing friends wilt
see that their caadidate is no enchanter, nor
magiciaa ia politics, although he evidently sap-
posed that bis .enigmatic denunciations pos
sessed peoaliar power.
An old saw says that " curses, like chickens,
statimes come home to roost." Here is evi
dently a case in poiat. About the first Thurs
day ia Angust next, when the dog-star shall
i-trsge highest, down! down! down! will sim
'xaerisp from the masses and strike in Mr. Ste
pheai' ears like an asrolite or a comet, and he
will 'conclude that the end of the world, in a
Hticai sense, has surely arrived. The " poor,
silly Soath". has a quiet way of chopping off
hercntemners which is more pleasant to be
hW thaa to experience.
The following is the celebrated Willow
Banks -epistle, which we commend to the pal
ates oftocr frieads :

The Democratic State Convention of Virginia,

assembled at Richmond on Wednesday lasU J.
RABDOLrii Tucker, Esq., was nominated
on the first ballot The Richmond Enquirer
"Tbe Democratic Convention which assem
bled yesterday was most respectable in number
and character. Tbe finest spirit of harmony
universally prevailed. We have merely time
to say that, on the first ballot, J. R. Tucker
Esq., of Frederick, was nominated as the can
didate for Attorney General, and his nomination
was immediately made unanimous. While
much diversity of sentiment:was manifested in
a choice between so many eminent members of
the bar, so soon as a choice was made every
one cheerfully yielded his hearty assent to the
action of the convention. Of 'Mr. Tucker's
election we have not tbe least doubt. He is
too well known throughout Virginia for to pass
a word of eulogy upon bis talents, virtues, and
genuine political integrity. Although very
young, he has made his mark upon public his

discharge of Uie duties of his new and honora

an article of utility and value to commere, now

" It is a email and handsome piece of furni
tur, bearing a stror-g resemblance to a mantel

the captains of vessels of the exact condition
of their ships so far as tbe leak of their crafts
is concerned. The nautical world will under
stand the importance of such an instrument
without further remark, From the depth of
the holds of many of our vessels, and especial
ly where their cargoes are properly stowed,
there is no means of knowing the extent or
leakage except by trying' the pumps, and as
thr se are liable to get out of order, the water
frequently rises in the hull to a dangerous
depth before it is known, so that the cargo is
'damaged, If the vessel ia not endangered. By

Duties, .EeiponjQMities and Labors -.of the
Office of Attorney General er tne ucuea
From lbe Wnsblnjtoa Union
Having recently seen a bill reported curing
the last Congress by Mr. Adams, Senator from
Mississippi, for re-organizing the Attorney
General's Office and changing it into a law de
partment, we have been led to make Borne
examination into its present duties, responsi
bilities, and labors. The office was created by
the judiciary act of 1789, and specific duties
devolved upon it, relating to arguing causes in
the Supreme Court' and giving legal opinions
when required by the President .or requested by
the bead of a department. These were increas
ed by the act of 1830, creating the office of
Solicitor of the Treasury, for which he was
made the counsellor and leeat adviser. His
dnttea were lereelv augmented bv the law of
1841,- requiring him to examine and certify upon
the validity ot tue title to janas purcnasea Dy
the gevernnent for public purposes. They
ere further increased by an executive order
of 1853, making hlm the organ of the depart
ments in giving instructions for the institution
and defense of suits where the United States
are interested. When reauired by the Presi
dent or a statute, he takes charge of other
legal matters as especially directed, as in uie
enlistment suits and California land cases. All
these duties arc performed, under high respon
sibilities, with only tne assistance or clerics
recelvinc the ordinary salaries, without the aid
of a sinele bureau officer. This simple state
ment muse besumcient to sausty an mat a nw
department should be created, and the Attorney
General provided with these aids common to
all departments. The public convenience re
quires that there should be one central head for
the management of all the legal business of the
government. This can best be done by uniting
the Solicitor's office to the Attorney General's,
thus forming a department, and clothing it witn
all the powers necessary to supervise and con
trol, through the District Attorneys, the civil
and criminal law business arising under the
laws of the federal Government.
un a recent occasion a gentleman iamiuar
with the affairs of the government and tne op
erations of the various departments and offices
made the following remarss, wmcn we are per

"Wheii aided py thj Industry, learning", ana

are properly usteetUetf most laborious andat

"Buthis greatest labors are in bis quasi-judi

seldom alJe.d.n'by the labors' of counsel, ana

by law to examine the title to every purchase

er 'for "sites for light-houses, custom-houses,
poat-officts, marine hospitals, or navy-yards,
forts, or other public purpose. No money can
do expended upon either until he. certifies th'e
title to be valid. A still greatur subject of ju
dicial'Jabor is found in tbe calls by tbe Presi
dent and beads of department for opinions upon
questions of law, to aiJ"in tbe discharge of
their official duties. His opinions give direc

Washington, May 15. Ad vices have been
received here in regard to the recent expedition
of Dr. Caldwell, of the U. S. ship Independence,
to the Isthmus of Darien. The statement of
Dr. Caldwell is highly interesting and impor
tant. It verifies the views and facts heretofore
presented by the English civil engineer, Mr.
Gisborne, in regard to the practicability of a
canal between the waters of the two oceans
across the Isthmus of Darien. Lt. Strain, on
the part of this government, was sent to the
isthmus in 1S53 to act in conjunction with Eng
lish engineers in a survey of this Interoceanie
Tbe .expedition failed. Lieutenant Strain
and bis parly barely escaped with their lives
from the perils of the expedition. The report
made ot the result, by Lieut, Strain, will be
found in the navy report for 134 He pro
nounced tbe route to be impracticable by reason
of the immense grades to be overcome. But
Dr. Caldwell proceeded far enough from the
Pacific side to obtain a view of the Atlantic,
and states thattbe route is perf ectly well adapt
ed to canalization. The report of Dr. Cald
well will give a fresh impulse to an investiga
tion of this important question.

reason that, at that timeit was believed to be
necessary to obtain the guaranty of England

to invest their money in them. The canal then
contemplated, through the Niearaguan tstbraas,
