Our advices seem to indicate beyond
much doubt the 'early recognition of
Tennessee as a State of the Union, fwd
her admission to representation in Con.
gress. For some time we have endeav.
ored to examine thw. Northern political
1it,ld with a view to a proximate onder.
-standing of th- real e.ffect of recent 'e.
velopmuens and.especially of the splen.

and ;entitnents of the NortIr in their

The New York l/crald says Gen:

been presented as follows:
By citizens of Philadelphia, with a
hou,e and futniture, valued at $30,000;

Boston, Q5,000; in cash fron the oiti
zens of New York, $1.00,000 ; total
The total of this sum ts -less than th<
annual income of the estates presented
to the Duke of Wellington by the Brit
ish Government and people. h!w-il
doubtless be romembered that after the
battle of Walterloo and the fall of Na
poleon, the! English Parliament votei
an estato to the Iron Duke to cosi
E200;000, or $1,000,000, (not in green
backs, but gold.) The Duke was to so
lect his estate.- Several were offeret
him, many of them princely. Among
others was one offered by an old noble
mai who had two, and who prided himl
self on the extent and condition of the
oine which lie would be only too proud
to have the Duke accept. The Duke
was invited to examine it, and.promised
to do so. Wh2u he 'camte down .from
London for thab purpose, the old lord
happened to have a severe attack of tho
gout.* He sent'explanations and many
appologies to the Duke, and said that
as he coiuld not come himself,' he had
sent his steward or Lead -mal to show
him the "farm." Very well," said the
Duke, "all right;" and off the pir'start

of him -was his shout to me to tell youi
