y - Legislative Inatinetiona. -
The fact that the American members of the
Tennessee Legislature voted agaiiixt th reso
lution instrncting our Senators and request
ing our Representatives in Congress, to vote
for the admission of Kansas with the Lcomp
ton constitution, is being used by the rham
democratic press, to place those members and
their party ia a false position before the conn
try. It U inferred, and the inference is stated
as a fact, that by their vote the American
party, or at least, the members which it has
placed ia the Legislature, have arrayed them
selves against the admission of Kansas with
the Lecompton constitution, and hence stand
ia opposition to their party friends in Congress.
The facta do not authorize the cone lunion, and
the Inference is simply urwubetantial and un
just. In the House of Representatives on the
23rd of January, the American members of
the committee on Federal relations, presented
minority report on the subject of the admis
sion of Kansas, wherein they took the ground
that they were not prepared to instruct our
Senators to vote either for or against the ad
mission of Kansas under the Lecompton consti
tution,and set forth their reasons. On the 27th
of January, American members of the Senate
entered a protect againHt the action of the
majority in passing instructing resolutions,
under the operation of the previous question,
whereby they were prevented from proposing
amendments, and entering into discussion or
explanations taking sultaiitially the same
ground as the House committee. Th resolu
tion coming up in the House, the views of the
minority were sustained and the resolution
was Voted down, notwithstanding un over
whelming democratic majority. Thus the
matter rested till the 10th inst., when the pro
position was renewed in the House, by way of
an amendment to the ''Bell resolutions." It
was then distinctly stat.-d by many of the
American members, while voting against the
resolutions, that they were iu favor of the
admission of Kansas, yet tbey were not suffi
ciently informed either in their own minds, or
of the sentimentd of the people to vote the !
instructions; but preferred to leave the matter
entirely within the discretion of our Congres
sional delegation. These are the simple tacts,
and while they are incontrovertible in them
selves, they cannot be so distorted by partizan
construction as to sustain the charges for
which they have been made the pretext.
But what is the doctrine of instructions,
and the grounds on which the right to give
t hem can be sustained T They unquestionably
imply an expression of the popular voice and
will. They can never be safely or properly
given, except on great occasions, and when
they are known to embody the opinion and
feeling of the people. Upon this they are
solely and exclusively based, and failing iu
this, the Legislature which assumes to give
them, is guilty of an arrogant usurpation of
power instead of being the vehicle for the
transmission of the wishes of the people, it
takes tbe place of the people, and substitute
its own for the opinions of the people. The
right and power of instructions is a high con
servative power, derivable only from the ulti
mate and superior sovereignty of the people,
a'nd unless it is a clear and unmistakable ex
pression of that sovereignty, it loses its pro
priety, its sanctity and its force. Now, we
put the question to the sham democracy, were
the instructions which have just passed the
Legislature warranted by these principles?
Were tbey necessary 7 Were they the expres
sion of the previously known will of the
people of Tennessee T Were they not rather
the expression of the individual will of the
members voting for them, and instigate by
the mere motive of sustaining a party admfn
IstrationT This is a new question, whirh has
been sprung upon the country since the meet
ing of the Legislature, which has never been
discussed before the people, about which
the people have never h-M any primary
meetings, or in any way ciprofised an au
thoritative opinion, on one sde 'or the
other. Let us grant that the people of Ten
nessee are in favor of the udnih-slon of Kan
sas under the Lecompton constitution, as we
have, no doubt they are, almost unanimously,
is this fact to be taken for grafted by the Le
gislature? How are legislators to know the
fact? and 6hall they assume a fuel and pro
ceed to act as if that fact were already fully
and legitimately ascertained Our position
on the Kansas question is well kaown, we are
fully satisfied with that position; but we ure
free to say that if we had beeu a member of
the Legislature, we should not have voted for
the instructing resolutions. It in a sacred
power, and one which we never could a rest
from its proper depositories, and substitute
our individual opinions in its place. It is a
trust reposed in the Legislature, which we
could not consent to tamper with ourselves,
or see abused by others. And this we under
stand to be the position of the American
members of the Tennessee Legislature, and
In which they are sustained by every consi
deration of propriety and principle.
It has been long a favorite doctrine with the
Democracy, iully inaugurated by Gen. Jack
son when he sent a special message to the
Senate, on the occasion of the vote of censure
on his conduct in the removal of the depos
ites. It has been abused by that party, until
it has dwindled into a contemptible party ma
noeuvre. It has been debauched by making
it a part of partizan intrigue. ' But while it
has been a favorite recourse, when it could be
effectually used against their opponents, they
have uniformly spurned it wheu commended
to their own lips. They are the firxt to give
Instructions,' but the last to obey them. The
Legislatures of Rhode Island, New Jersey,
Iowa, Ohio, and some others, have passed in
structing resolutions on the Kansas question;
but in most of these cases, they will, as they
ought to, be a dead letter. Thne of tbe Ten
nessee Legislature were intended to harass
and perplex the Hon. Jonx Bell, aud are
only a prolongation of the ptTMU'Ut attacks
which have been unceasingly directed agiut

Tbe marriage of the Princess Hoyal
On the 25lh of January, in the Chapel of
St. James's Palace, London, where eighteen
years before,1 Victoria, Queen of England, w as
married to Prince Albert, of Saxe-Coburg,
the marriage of that Queen's eldest daugter,
the Princess Royal of England, with Prince
Frederick William, of Prussia, was celebrated
with royal splendor. All Fngland w as jubil
ant, and all London set out on a holiday.
Nothing was talked of Wit the royal marriage,
and the columns of the morning papers were
filled with the most minute particulars of how
and when and where the ceremonies were to
take' place. It was right that England should
thus take such a deep interest in tbe marriage
of the daughter of its Queen, right that its
-press should tbns marshal its columns in honor
,and record of the occasjon. For twenty
year has Victoria been a model of a Queen, a
wife, "and mother, such as royalty rarely has
been able to boast of, and winning for her the
love of her people; the marriage of her
daughter,' apart from the important political
results it may produce, was universally be
lieved to have' been founded on those londs of
affection 'which invest the ninriiage of the
humblest with the deepest interest, which
have added lustre to the Queen's own charac
ter and been productive to her of the highest
domestic happiness ; and, therefore, it is honor
able and creditable to the English people that
all Eugland should thus, at least in imagina
tion aud talk and reading, have gone to the
weelding of the royal daughter, gloried in it,
and tioasted of its magnificence. Even here, on
this side of the Atlantic, where we marry with
lefs pomp though nil are sovereigns at the
weddings, we take pleasure in presenting a
few of the beautiful pictures of this royal Eng
lish bridal. Here they are. The first is of
the Queen and mother :
The Queen looks, as she always looks, kind
ly amiable, but self-possessed and stately. On
her head is a crown of jewels such as relieves
all apprehensions as to the effect which the
late Hanoverian "rid'' upon the royal ca.-kets
might have had upon Her Majesty's toilette.
Courtesyiug iu acknowledgment of the pro
found homage with which she is welcomed.
Her Majesty passes at once to her chair of
state on the left of the altar, and which is
placed between the five embroidered settees
tiecupied by the youngest royal children.
From this time all remain standing in the
presence of Majesty, even the rrincess of
Prussia, w ho stands on the opposite side of
Lord Palmerston, on the Queen's right
hand, liears the Sword of State, while the
Ihitcbess of Sutherland, herself attirtd in ul
most roval magnificence, stands on the left bv
right of of'.ice as Mistress of the Robes. Again
there is another pause of ititense interest, and
again the drums and trumpets ure heard,
and, ushered iu w ith the same imposing cere
monies, comes the procespion of the briele
groom. Tltc second is the picture of the bridegroom,
and beautiful, stately, and reverential il is:
On his right w alks His Royal Highness, the
Prince of Prussia, his father, and on Lis left
his brother. Prince Albert. All eyes, howev
er, ure fixed upon the royal bridegroom, as
he walks slowly, but w ith the most perfect
ease and elegance of action, up the centre of
tiie chapel. He wears the uniform of a Prus
sian General, with the insignia of the Order
of the Black Eagle of Prussia. The uniform
shows his tall figure to advantage, and sets
off his frank, open countenance and prepos
sessing bearing. Near the altar he steps be
fore Her Majesty's chair of state, aiid slowly
bows with the most profound reverence, and,
turning to his royal mother, lie bows again
with equal respect, but less d.-eply than to
the Queen, and then, kneeling iu the Centre of
the cliap.l, prays w ith earnest devotion for a
few minutes. His prayers ended, he riseses
uud stands at the rilit hand of the altar,
waiting his bride and likewise submitting to
such a scrutiny from hundreds of brilliant
eyes as never a bachelor withstood aloue be
fore. Again a pause ensues a pause of im
pressive solemnity, for expectation seems
wrought to the highest pitch, and no one
ppeaks, and few eveii move to disturb the
stately solemnity that reigns ovir the w hole
interior, while even the most illustrious of the
royal guests seem struck, and gaze w ith open
admiration on the sceue around. It is. in
deed, one which might well rivet the attention
of priuces, one of those gorgous visions sel
dom seen aud never forgotton. The great
officers of State enter the Chapel, but no one
heeds them, for there is a peculiar movement
without, and a soft rustling of silk is clearly
And the rustling of the silk reveals the
third picture of beauty in this royal wedding.
The bride enters, with her father, the Prince
Consort, on her right hand the king of the
Belgians on the left.
All-absorbing is the interest excited by the
appearance of the bride herself. The gorge
ous veil she wears depending from her
head-dress is thrown ofT, and hanging iu mas
sive folds behind, leaves the expression of her
f.iee completely visible us she walks slowly,
her head slightly stooped in bashful mrss, ami
h-T eyi-s cast upon the ground. IL-r Royal
Highness wore a inaguiucent dress of moire
antique. It was coiujsised of a rich rolie of
white moire antique, oruameuted with three
flounces of Iloniiou lace-, in which material
the princesses of the royal family of England
have on these occasions invariably bwndrcscd.
Tbe design of the lace for the Princess Royal's
dress consisted of boquet in open Work, of
the rose, shamrock, and thistle, iu three me
dallions, ulike remarkable for their beauty.
At the top of each flounce, iu front of the
dress, were wreaths of orange and myrtle
blossoms the' latter being the bridal flower of
Germany every wreath terminating with bo
juets of the same flowers.imd the length of each
being so graduated as to give the uppenruuee
of a rolie defined by 11 o '.vers. The apex of
this floral pyramid was formed by a large bo
quet worn on the girdle thus giving color,
variety, and great lightness to the costume.
The train, which was of the unusual length
tf more than three yards, w as of w hite moire
antique, trimmed w ith two rows of Houston
Lice, surmounted by wreaths similar to those
on the flounces of the dress, with boqucts at
short intervals, ller Royal Highness wore
no diamonds a simple wreath of flowers
being I.er only head ornament.
As the bride iass-siip to the altar shestop
and innk"s a deep reverence to her moth r,
though with evident agitation, aud Lur lace
flushes like ciimsem; theu, ugaiu turning, sue
rendered the same homage to the Prince of
Russia. As she does so the brid groom elect
advances, aud, kneeling on one knee, presses
her hand w ith ail expression of fervent admir
ation that moved the august audience. Tak
ing their places then at the altar, and with
their illustrious relatives standing round iu a
group of unequalled brilliancy, the service
commences with the chorale, which peals
through the little buildmg with the most sol
The marriage service over, and we have the
fourth and most touching picture of the whole
a sweet picture of human nature o.-criiug
the mastery over royalty aud pageantry, and
bringing Vie fore the ullur the bride of the pal
ace to the same holy level of domestic aifcciiou
an the bride of the cottage.
Hardly haI the ceremonial as arraugi-d by
chamlieilains and hcruldi ended, when the
bride, giving vent to her evidently lung pent
up feelings, turned and flung herself imui Lit
mother's beisom w ith a suddenness and dtpth
of f. 41 in that thrilled through every heart.
Agaiuaand again her Majesty strained ht-r to her
heart and kissed her, and tried to conceal her
emotion; but it w as lolb. needless and iu vain,
for all perceived it, and there were few wLo
did not share it. We need not m utiou bow

The Charleston Courier, of yesterday, ssys :
The tad. intelligence of the decease-eftbis
widely known and esteemed citizen reached
our city in a private dispatch from the West. J
TTp pmirMl snddenlr on the 10th inst at one !
of his plantations in Louisiana. , , I ',
CoL Wade Hampton was well and w idely
known throughout the South, and beyond, as"
a gentleman and citizen of untiring public
spirit, gallant demeanor, and high-toned cour
tesy and hospitality in all points a noble re
presentative of the best old school and clafcs
of Carolina planters. At the memorable de
fence of New Orleans, in Dec. 1814, and on
the 8th Jan., 1815, he acted as a confidential
and well approved aid-de-camp for General
Jackson, and, with oar esteemed fellow-citizen,
Col. A. P. Hayne, shared largely the con
fidence and closest regards of that sagac
ious chieftain, whose intuitive judgment of
men was one of his most remarkable traits.
Few men above tbe desire of station and office
had been so widely know as Col. Hampton,
and the sad intelligence we now publish will
be received with a widespread sorrow, such as
perhaps could not be created by the death of
any other private citizen. .
The intelligence reached us at too late an
hour to pe-rmit us to give any details or par
ticulars of Col. Hampton's life, which as we
supposed had reached its sixty-fifth year. ' J ; :
' His remains are on the route to Columbia,
S. C, ia charge of his 6on.
The KoMuth Family In America, p
Though now in a certain degree retired from
public notice, we are certain that the Kos
euths in this country still hold a warm interest
in the hearts of thousands among ua.v '.We are
glad therefore to know that after many severe
trials incident to their forced exile and sudden
change of circumstances, land, aud language,
they are now in a great degree sheltered from
the cruel storms that have sw ept over them.- -
The daughters of the admirable Madame
Meslenyi, the Nightingale of the Hungarian
w ar hospitals, have been most generously cared
for by Mrs. Cruger, of our city, and under
superior teachers have grow n up to sensible
and accomplished womanhood, such as would
have rejoiced tbe spirit of their departed
mother, w ho exclaimed on her death-bed that
she could now expire in peace, since her chil

had lived. ' .
Friends of Madam Zulovsky have purchased
for her a little farm iu New Jersey, where she
li ves in comfort with her two youn gest children.
Her second son is quite distinguished asacivil
engineer in the West.
The gentle, discreet, and accomplished Mad
ame: Ruttpay has established a boarding school
for young ladies at Cornwall, near New burg,
which promises to be highly successful. Her
eldest son, a graduate of Uniou College, is in
the engineer department of the navy yard at
Brooklyn; the second is in the navy agency at
New York. They are gentlemanly, unexcep
tionable young men.
Sad as has been their lot in the loss of for
tune, home, country, and the cherished aspira
tions of a devoted patriotism, one f th -se
ladies lias been heard to declare that she looks
w ith resiguatiein upon what they have endured,
since it has brought to her boys the know ledge
of a practical and actual republicanism, in the
enjoyment of which they will live here, and
the spirit and science of which they will carry
to Europe with them, should Hungary ever be
able to call back her martyrs. Journal of Com
merce. ?pS Some may think it is strange (it isn't
though) that, ever since the time when we re
marked in our paper that nine-tenths of all
the hundreds of young women sent by us to
the South as teachers had got married there,
we have been literally overwhelmed with ap
plications from New England, New York,
Pennsylvania and Ohio.
We do not think, that, in justice to such of
our Southern friends as are in want of teach
ers, we can send any girl that will not pledge
herself to us to continue at least six months
in the business. We know that the conditions
may seem hard, but really we shall have to be
About three years ago the trustees of a fine
female academy in one of the Southern States
wrote to us to send them a teacher. We 6cnt
them a very beautiful and accomplished young
lady, and they promptly wrote U3 a letter of
warm thanks for the selection. In about three
months, they w rote us again, telling us that
their teacher Lad got married and re-questing
us to send them another. "We did send them
another quite' as beautiful ami accomplish! d
as the fiit, and they w ere, as well they might
be, very much d lighted with her. In just
aliout three months however, they applied to
us a third time, besrging us to send them still
another, the second having got married like
the first. In their last application, however,
they insisted that the lady next sent to them
should be plain-looking and no h than thirty-five
years old. The conditions were diffi
cult, and we did not succeed in complyiug
with them. Vie prevailed upon our friends,
the trustees, to accept a richly talented lady
who was neither old jior ugly, she giving us
her honor that she. would not marry in less
than half a year. We understand that she
ludd out like a brave good girl to the eud of
the specified time, but uot a d'.y afterwards.
