TEE STATE BASK.
We furnish elsewhere an abstract of the bill
introduced by Mr. Speaker Boicit, of the Sen
ate, "foyroride for the lijatdafioa oftkt Bank
of Tanutee, an! Ue Frtt Jaalrr ef tit Statt,
and for other pvrpotts."
Oar readers need hardly be told that we ap
prove of Iht ttral purpose of this bill at indi
cated bitt title. It would be too much to say
of almost any bill that could be introduced in
reference to a subject of so much delicacy,
that It is perfect In all Us details. We learn,
in fact, that the author himself may propose
some alterations, but .not so as materially to
effect tbe general objects of the bilL
It is, for instance, still a question of doubt
among the friends of the bill, as to whether In
lieu of that section which provides that no new
note -or bill shall be discounted, hut that old
ones may be renewed every six months on pay-
meat of ten per cent en the original capital, It
might not be best, simply to require that after
a certain time, the discoun's of the bank should
be dimiriabed at a given rate.
We leara, in fact, that the author and friends
of the bill are not wedded to the plan or length
of time in which the bill contemplates winding
up the bank, the object belngrather to provide

States, will meet with but little opposition
from the friends of reform.
We commend the bill, as a whole, to the
careful consideration of our readers. It is,
perhaps, the most important that has been in

friends of the measure, to hear what the peo

A Pacha's Wire Mme. Pacha has arrived
at Paris, and we learn from the Poiru, of Nov.
14:b, some facts in regard to ber history. She
was born at Reps, In Tratisvrvania, and was
sent to a h'st clasjs school at Bucharest when
eleven years old. She there showed great
musical capacity, and at fifteen years was a fine
pianist Oaier Par ht, then military commandant
in Wallacbia, met ber at a soiree, and as be,
loved music as well as Intelligent conversation,
and bad none of the Turkish ideas in regard to
the proper shape of woman.be Jfll in lore with
her, courted and married her. She adopted
Mutsalman habits, never went out except veiled
and attended by eunachs,-but still accompanied
her husband on all bis warlike expeditions,
s she was much interested in military glory,
the wrote triumphal marches, which were
played by the Turkish bands In going to battle.
The only child of this marriage died, and Omer
Pacha thought that a new marriage would give
biman heir. Perhaps, voo, be wanted to in
gratiate himself with the old Turkish party.
At all events, he demanded in marriage the
daughter of Hafiz Pacha, the leader of this
party. " Remain in my barem," slid be to bis
wire, nut sne was too proud for this, and de
manded adivorce, having obtained which, she
has come to France to obtain an honorable
asylum. Mme. la Marecbale Omer is only 23
years old, has the innocent grace of a young
girl, a complexion cf dazzling whiteness, and
splendid auburn hair. It has be-n erroneously
stated that she Is seeking diversion In the gay
world; on the contrary, she remains in absolute
retirement The Patrie do-?a not state it, but
it is understood that Mme. Omer Pacha designs
givirg concerts in Paris.

THE KAKSAS COSStlTXTTIOI.
We have received, through the Lecompton

The following Is the debate upon the propo
sition to give relief to the MeiSphis and Ohio
Railroad, changing its location by Trenton.
The debate was bad in the House of Repre
sentatives on the 4th inet, the Sena'e Bill be
ing under consideration :
MEXrHIS AND OHIO RAILROAD COHPAXT.
On motion by Mr. King, (the rule being sus
pended the House now tooc up the Senate bill
for the relief of the Memphis and Ohio railroad
repealing the location by TreBton.
Mr. King stated the circumstances requiring
tne cnarter provision tor making irenton a
point in the location to be repealed. The air
line thortened the distance six mites so sav
ing $60,000 to the State. He asked no addi
Uonal State aid and would ask none.
Mr. Taylor proposed to amend by adding:
" Provided nothing in this act shall be so con
strued aa to extend to said itauro-ia uompany,
any State aid they are not entitled to render
Mr. Tarlorhad been informed, that the word
ing of tbat act would entitle tbem to draw
State aid to Ihe amount of $100,000.
Mr. King had no objection to the amendment
if it were clear in its terms. He wishid to
modify by inserting words prohibiting "addi
tional State aid."
Mr. Johnson submitted these words in lien of
Mr. Taylor's amendment: "Provided no addi
tional State aid shall be granted."
Air. Taylor was afraid of the word 'adJi
Uonal," and preferred his amendment He
wanted them cut off from aid.
Mr. King. If the object was to cut off the
aid entirely, he was opposed to it The Direc
tors on the part of the State, had decaded to
shorten the route and save the money of the
State to the extent of $60,000. They might
still eo by Trenton and draw this additional
amount We only ask tbat aid which the Com
pany would have been entitled to going by
Trenton, lees the $60,000.
Mr. Richardson suggested to restrict the aid
to $10,000 since it was proposed to save
$60,000 of the original appropriation of $100,
000. Mr. Wilson showed how this bill might be
construed into a new appropriation of $100,000
toward thit road. They had fotreited their
former aid of $103,000. They had already re
ceived a larger sum for the bridge aid, than any
Other rod in West Tennessee.

less in the East, as the facts showed.. If the
bill pass not the Company will go .by 'Trenton
and draw the $60,000 additional.
Mr. Kowles. Are the company at woik on
the straight line.
Mr. Dunlan. 1 es ; but tbey hare not got so
far but they can turn. Mr. XT. read the act of
last session to show mat me Dill contemplated
no new appropriation. He also explained the
eireumntances which had brought them info
the difficulty requiring trie adoption or the
amendment of that act proposed in this
bill. Ha also alleged, that If the bill were not
passed, they would probably still go by Tren
ton and receive the adlitional bridge aid
$60,000 more than they could receive under this
bill. He also reviewed the printed letter of
Judge Brown, criticising the interested motives
which evidently prompted it the claiming an
appropriation of aid to a worthless, impracti
cable road, with the object to. defeat the con
struction of the Memphis and Ohio, for the
prospective advantage of the Mobile and Ohio
Railroad making reference to ' certain "Ly po-
thecated Tennessee bonus, wntcu nad paid for
ironing the latter road in Ihe State of Missis
sippi Mr. Wilson. Had they not completely for
feited their $100,000. They had locateJ the
air line, and would not change to go by Tren
ton. There couldhe made no otber question
bere, than this: Will this Leslilature make the
additional appropriation of $100,000?
Mr. Bolloch vindicated Judge Brown from
the charge of hiving hypothecated State bonds.
Whilst be would vote for this bill, it would be
well for the House to understand the case, with
reepct 'to aid proposed to the Mobile and Ohio,
and the Mississippi Central railroads, and be
proceeded to make statements at length, with
reference to undry proceedings' connected with
all these Interests.
Mr. Griffith. If the $100,000 bridge aid by
Trenton waa forfeited, would not the road "bv
the new route have to cross the same streams

Mr. Bulloch. Yes.
Mr. Dml?p bad not Intended to implicate

that we would now be ready to adjourn this
legislature, bad there not been so much unne
cessary talking. But, sir, beiiig the representa
tive or tuywooa county, in wctch this bridge
is to be built, it devolves on me to explain, at
least the vote I shall give. As to our svstem
of internal Improveiceats, I think it ts wild and
reckless. And 1 say, here la my place to day
that the time will come ( and that not verv dit.

so. there is actually a caving of $30,000, ht
shortening the route six miles. Now, sir, the
question arises, will the great- tatats VL Ten
nessee ta.le advantage of a legal technicality,
and thereby cripple the road, or rather should
she net In accordance with her enlarged etnse
of patriotism, allow tbat aldtoan enterprise
she has been endeavoring to foster. The gene
ral happiness, prosperity and Interest bf the
whole Htate "was the object contemplated io

op a mere town, oi jiaiucuiMt iiuu .ui wu
mlttee on Internal Improvement has adopted
and presented a bill granting an extension of !
time to some halt dozen roads, In wnicn to
complete their first thirty miles. What was
tne ODjeci r was it not sir, to remove a re
striction, so aa to allow the application of
State aid?" Yes! Now, sir, bere is a proviso
removed to allow application of State aid, which
would be forfeited if not removed ; Iherefcre
s ill pledging the State to four or five million
dollars, which Blie might throw off' if she de
aired. On the otber band, here Is a road not
aeking fpr additional aid, but to be allowed
what has been promised on the bridge while it
reduces State aid $60,000.
Mr. Richardson desired to know the reason
why this bridge aid was made to depend upon
the condition that the road should go by Tren
ton? Mr. Bradford. He knew not It might have
been done to propitiate the Representative from
Gibson counly at the last session.
Mr. Richardson continued Intimating bis
Intention to offer an amendment, according to
his forwr sofgestioc to limit the aid of this
road to $10,000.
.Mr. Williams gave his view of the ease ob
jecting to gentlemen whose counties bad shared
most largely in the State's bounty, being for
ward for more aid. lie objected also to tbat
aspect of the case, which ma le the Legislature
subject to the dictation of a railroad company,
and contended that this waa nothing less than
an original appropriation.
Mr. Rowles should not be influenced by the
wish of the town of Trenton, or the wish of the
railroad company, but should vote with refer
ence to the interests of the State at large, as
eenueeted with the interests of the company.
If we were to go on with the road. It would be
wise of course to get along ul'ti It with the
least expense. With the view be took, he was
in favor of the bill, because the State was al
ready too deeply involved in this Improvement
to recede from the work.
Mr. Polk waa opposed to additional State aid,
but concurred with others In the fact tbat the
bill was to save $60,000.
Mr. Newman should certainly vote against
the bill. A majority of the Internal Improve
ment Committee considered Unit there was no
additional aid in this bill. He differed and
dissented from tbat opinion, and gave his rea
sons for it He found in the Report of the
Road Commissioner, page 17, that this Mem.
phis and Ohio Railroad had already received
f 1 00,000 bridge aid; and that officer in sum
ming up, does not notice the $100,000 In this
Mr. Davidson asked which route would best
serve the Interests of the public.
Mr. Newman. The air line.
Mr. Davidson. Which would be cheapest to
the State? He should vote for the bill for
these two reasons, and for the further reason,
that if they have forfeited the aid of the State,
it would be unworthy to take advantage of it
under the circumstances.
Mr. Newman. The bill will give to this road
Mr Stovall explained why be should vote
for the bill. He relied upon the judgment of
the State Director; and then the State would
save $60,000. He would not vote additional
aid to the extent of $100,000 to complete every
road in the State.
Mr. Newbern concurred in his colleague's vin
dication of the honorable, Milton Brown, one
of the first political economists In the State,
and by his efforts two years ago, much improv
ident legislation for Internal Improvement was
doubtles prevented. There were restrictions
besides the Trenton route, which this bill would
remove. Oae was tbey were required to grade
the road to the Carroll county line before they
could get the aid. His position In the canvass
was, that he would not vote aid, except it was
to save an important road from failure. Ibis
road did not stand in tbat class. Looking at it
l'SHy he regarded this aid forfeited, and this
bill as an original appropriation. He made
question whether the road would yet go by
Trenton If this appropriation should be with
held. Mr. King bad no positive information.
Mr. Newbern felt specially called upon to
oppose the removal of the restriction to carry
the road to the Carroll county line.
Mr. Lamb was for the bill, because he re
garded it as subserving the interests of both
the State and the Railroad Company. The bill
bad passed the Senate by an overwhelming ma
jority. He also argued the proposed reducing
the Stated liabilities to the amount of $60,
000. Mr. John's amendment was then read, having
oern mooiuea aB ioiiows :
provided nomiag in ID Is act shall be sn
construed as to allow said Company State aid
to a larger amount than $10,000 per mile," etc.

off in' hot haste pictures whose vivid freshness
no distant rbrooicler can hope to rival. The
correspondence wa published yesterday, how
ever, supplies one or two racts respectlrg the
proceeding of the relieving force which it may
be well to recapitulate. The Ganges were
crossed by the troops on the 18th. by the heavy
gun on the 20th. The passage took place al
most without resistance, and the enemy fell
back on a sfroog position at no great distance
from the river. On the 21st this position was
attacked and carried. Ihe rebels lost four
guns, and suffered severely, especially from
our small force of volunteer caralry (under
two uunareu men,) led oy bir James Uutram,
who are stated in Havelock's dispatch to have
sabred 120 of the enemy. No time was lost in
pressing the advantage thus gained. On the
21st, the day o'f the' engagement, the British
force advanced 20 miles, the next day 14. The
retreat or the enemy thus hotly pursued, was
too precipitate to allow of tbe-r breaking down
the Bunnee bridge On the 23J and 21th, the
advance appeared to have been continued with
out interruption ; on the latter day the reliev
ing army distinctly heard the firing at Luck
now, and the general in command Immediately
ordered ,'a royal" salute from the 24-pouoders
to announce our approach to our friends;" that
was the first announcement to the heroic little

Full details of the splendid achievements at
Delhi and Lucknow have now cems to hand.
If anything ciuld raise our estimate of valor,
tne seiii ana uentacDisg constancy to wbicb
the very fact of victory under surh adverse
circumstances bore witness, it would be the
narrative we this day lay before onr readers.
Here will be seen what was dared and suffered
ny the brave men to wbom we awe deliverance
from one of tbe greatest perils which bave ever
threatened the empire. Here we can jadge
what may be accomplished br a small bodv of
resolute men when they have confidence in their
commanders, and when tbat confidence Is jus
tified. The capture of Delhi and the relief of
tuexnow are deeds of arms tbat mi v well serve
asnWels to future eorimanders. Every detail cf
such exploit Is Interesting, since it shows what
ascendency may be acquired by one race over
another, and how the disproportion of nnmhers
may be balanced by tbe vigor and heroism
which only civilization can impart
Delhi was, as we have already learnt, taken
between tbe 14;b and 2lst of September. Tbe
little British force was establisbedalongaridge
facing the north side, at a distance of from
1200 to 1500 yards. Ibis position was render-
ed necessary since the base of our operations
was the Punjab. Sii gutarly enongh, the ancient
city or tue moguls was notattacked by a force
supported and supplied by the capital of tbe
British India, but by the most recent conquest
of our arms in the northwest The enemy
were in possession of a city which, though
certainly not a' first class fortress, was vet
strongly fortified by art ; while Ita natural po
sition made it well capable of holding out if

Such were the chances against a successful
assault o' the place that tbe British generals
whose subsequent experience proves not to have
been wanting in boldness chose rather to rest
on tbe defensive for months, though ttie resis
tance of Delhi was a most powerful encourage
ment to revolt, than risk their army and the
national nonor in an attact which mtrbt be
unsuccessful. At last the siege train arrived,
it was known that no further re-enforcements
were to be expected, and preparations were ac
cordingly made for the assault I be British
force seems to have been even less than was
previuslv supposed. It amounted to 6.500 in
fantry, 1000 cavalry, and six hundred artillery,
Europeans and natives. Of this force, little
over 8000 men, probably less than half were
Europeans, still it was necessary to attack
the city and its 25,000 defenders with this
handful of men. How this was done Is recount
ed in another place. Oj the 7th of September
operations commenced. During the next three
days batteries were traced, completed, and
armed, In spite of a vharp fire of musketry and
a storm of sbot ami shell. The Sepoys opposed
our progress with a skill which shows how
much tbey have profited by oar military in
struction during their long term of service.
ror instance, we are told that "the enemy
went to work to night, aod made an advanced
trench parallel to our left attack and about
three hundred and fifty yards from it from
wbicb, at day-break, they opened a very hot
fire of musketry, which was maintained during
the rest of tbe seise ; tbey bad previously got
some light gans aad oae heavy gun out into the
open on our right, which caused considerable
annoyance by their enfilade fire." We seem to
be reading of Todtleben and tbe Russians when
we enme to such details of military science ;
and the narrative serves to show bow wily and
how dangerous are these Asiatic tigers who
have been so long fawning on us.
Oa the 11th our batteries opened, and by the
next day 50 guns and mortars were pouring a
continuous bail of shot and shell into the city.
For three days tbe fire continued night and day;
but even then the stubborn spirit of tie mitln-
eers did not give way. Though usable to trti
trom uieir oastlan, they sent onK gaas into the
open "got a gun to bear from a bole broken
in tbe long curtain wall, seat rockets from one
of beir Martello towers, and maintained a
storei of musketry from their advanced trench
and from the city walls." Bat when things
came to close quarters, then the difference be
tween European and Asiatic made itse.f
known. On the 14th the assault was made.
We need not recapitulate tbe incidents of this
eventful day, but we miy call attention Io the
devoted courage of Lieut SlkeM,and his com
rades, who formed the party which blew open
the Cashmere gate. Never was the Victoria
cross better merited than by this most gallant
officer and his companion in heroism. Gen.
iilcboNon then formed bis troops aBd led on
tbe first column. In advance toward tbe La
hore-gate he met the wound which has termi
nated his noble crreerat the earlv age of 35.
Three of tbe colemns were saceessful ; the
fourth, unfortunntelv. miscatrled On the 14th
tbe British tost 61 officers aad 1178 men killed
and wounded, l et the city was not to be won
in a aay. or six days more the enemy fought
rrom street io street, and trout ueuse to house.
On tbe 17th our batteries commanded th
bridge, the seliinghnr, and the pa lice, which
were Kept unaer an luceesant Pre or saells.
Tbe mutineers, with a coolness worthy of
uorucnaKon, came to tne conclusion tbat the
town could not be held, aad accordingly sent
ou meir oaggage, wna a deteraslaation to fol
low when it had gained a fair start. The
townspeople took refuse in the palace, or be
gan to Uy tbe city. Great numbers of the peo
ple came into the districts occupied by our
troops, and were passed out of the town un-
tturt Mr earns ol people and animals also
poured out from the Aimere g te. This strange
exodus is one of the most striking things in the
history of warfare. A fewdavs later tbe citr
is described as absolutely void of inhabitants.
Houses, bazzars, morques, were tenantless.
and everything left ae at the moment of de
parture. The capital of Mussulman India.
with its 150.000 inhabitants, were changed to
the aspect of Pompeii, or those doomed cities!
ot Iranian rabie wherelbe Uodef Mohammed
turned a whole race of Idolaters to stone.
By the I9ih great bodies of mutineers had
effected their escape. A remnant however.
stood their ground, and on this day. tbe fifth
atter tne great assault, they actually got a
iiciu piece oeuina a oreastworx ana opened lire
upon os, of course without much effect Tbe
act, however, shows the obstinacy of the re
sistance, since, two days belore tbe great bedy

and there was not tbe slightest chance of hold
ing the place. Oa the 20th by five o'clock in
tne evening, the struggle was over. Tbe whole
citr, the palace, the jummimtniid'. -or great
mosque, the selimgbuT, and the bridge were in
our possession. The mutineers seem then to
have been struck with a panic, for they deserted
taeir camp outside -tne .Aimere gate, leaving
their clothing, bedding, cooking utensils and
other necessaries behind tbem So ended this
momentous contest The number of men br
whom the city was assaulted was, indeed, dis
proportionately small, and on the principle
tbat " tbe fewer men tbe greater share of hon
or," they deserve all that can be said In their
From Delhi we must now turn to Lucknow.
Tbe operatloas coincided in time with tbe cap
ture or Delhi. Oa the 19 Ji, Sir Henry Hare
lock crossed the Ganges on a bridge of boats.
The movement was not an hour too soon, for it
was known at Lucknow all supplies would be
exhausted on the 21 tb Moreover, as our read
ers are aware, the works were found to have
-been mined, and in a few days more the garri
son wouiu uave neen at tne sepoys mercy.
We will not here describe the skill and cour
age and opportunities of the advance, bnt we
would call attention to an Incident which seems
to belong rather tn tbe age of Frolssart tbaao
mat ot xuinie rines and acienlihs war. Sir
James Outran was superior In rank to Gen,
Havelock, but, far from superceding him, Sir
James publishes an order appointing tbat gal
lant officer to tbe command ot the force for the
relief of Lucknow; and accompanying tbe
army In his civil capacity, tenders his services
to Gen. Havelock as a volunteer. Nor was
this an empty compliment or an unmeaning
profession for Sir James Outram charging at
the head of the volunteer cavalry, captured
two of the four guns which were the trophies
of the first day's success. Such proofs of high
and courteous feeling among brother officers
give the soldier' character ita highest charms.
Lueknnw was eventually relieved, although we
learn that, owing to the number of the sick and
neipiess, tne garrison could not be brough
away. It must, therefore, still remain under
the command of lis gallant chief, Col. Inglis,
of the 32d This officer, whose wife, (the
daughter of SIrF. Tbesiger) and three cbil
ilreii are shut up with the litjje force in the
Residency, has, we believe, had tbe chief com
mand during the greater part or the sleere. We
trust he mty be spared with the rest of his gal-
ant associates ror soitaoie rewards in their
sucn is jne .outline or ise military news
brought by tbe last mail. One character Is im
pressed on all we hear of this desperate -con
test. It is the noble conduct of the officers In
command and tbe devoted courage ot the men,
the country has,. we all feel, repaired its
renown, wbicb was for a while wounded by tbe
episode or tne t nmea. VVe have shown the
world tbat we bave generals who can com
mand, as welt as soldiers who can go boldly to
oanger ana viciorj. , me men wnooecatne no
torious two or three years snee may no .be
