The Length or the Session.
The Union and American manifest coniiider
ble tendernese on the matW of the length of
the present session of the Legislature, as re
f ferred to by as a few days iuc It takes
sue with us that the session will be unusually
' nd nnnecessarily long, and puts forth a flim
sy argument to show that we are wrong. It
" refers to the fact that the sewiou of 1853-4
" was 144 days, that of 1855-6, 155 days, and
that deducting the time (12 days) during
which the Legislature was adjourned by joint
resolution, the present session will le 149
days and adds that the Utter will be shorter
than the two former. Accordingly 144 is a
' greater number than 149. The statement of
7 the Union and American shows only one session
of the Legislatures of Tenneeeef to have
been longer than the present. Now, we did
not say that it was the longest session that has
erer been held; but that it was "longer than
vtuaL" According to the Union and American
" the length of one session is the standard of
' what is usual; and although the present session
is longer than every other sew-ion except one,
' it is, nevertheless, shorter than usual I This
, i simply absurd. The Union and American,
and every one of it readers, know that
what is customary or usual is not de
termined by a single act or event. But
to make it appear that the present session
is not longer in fact than any of its predeces
sors, the Union and American resort to the
quibble of deducting 12 days for the adjourn
ment during the Christmas holidays. Why did
it not examine the Journals, and daluct all the
days in which there was no session ? it would
have been equally legitimate and reasonable.
It must be well known to our neighbor that
the reason and argument used to bring about
that adjournment,were that it was and had been
impossible to do business during the holidays,
because a quorum could not be had. And
" the Senate Journal (we have not that f the
House before us at this moment) for 1855-6,
shows that the Senate met ten days during the
holidays, when there was no quorum present.
If you wish to make a fair computation, why
not deduct these ten days from that s'wion,
as well as the twelve from this T That would
make that session only 115 days, and this
the longest session that ever occurtd in Trnntte f
We leave it to the candor of the Unum anil
American to say, whether he, and not ourstel ves,
is really in error.
Our neighbor further takes issue with us
that the length of the prenent semion was un
necessary, and quotes only what we e-aid of the
Revised Code, and not all of that. Now we
will make the Union and American the jadge of
its own case again, by asking it whether all
the time spent in points of order, discuwion,
explanations, Ac., was really nflid for the
public good, or for judicious legislation? We
said that the delay could not be saddled upon
Code, because the public time had leii other
wise squandered. We further stated that the
Code, could have been adopted in a much
shorter mode than that pursued. It was not
indispensable that the Code should have been
read three times over. As we stated, the Code
was Intended to be a difrc.t of thetttatutes al
ready in existence, and the fact as to whether it
is such is confided to the Committee of able and
honorable gentlemen who ha ve it in charge, and
the reading of it before the asw uibly is a matter
of form, which might lie disieusMl with. Cut
our neighbor insiuts that the Committee could
not have examined the Coelj ia a shor
ter time than they have doao ; and there
fore the session will not be unnecessarily long.
Now granting that the code could not have
been dinposed of in any other way th iu the
manner in which it has been done, yet it is a
fact which ought to be well kuown to the
Union and American, that about one-half that
committee has not labored upon it at all.
That labor has been devolved upon a sub
committee. There were appoints! two revi
sors, who divided the work betweu them,
and why should not there have b en two ub
committees, as well as one, having, each, one
of the revivors to aid thora, and thus shared
the onerous and thankless labor, a id short
ened the time by half? This might have h-m
done greatly to the public iutret, and with
out great inconvenience to the L-gi-dature,
and so it was " unnecessary " (as necttty im
plies an atmence of alternatives) that so much
time should have been consumed by the code,
and both the hypothesis and conclusion of the
Union and American fall to the ground.,
(jif The Union and American bay it knows
nothing about the facts stated by us in refer
ence to the absence of Mr. Ilkkius, of Mary
land, from his seat, at the time of the t ote on
referring the Kansas questions to the Commit
tee on Territories. We thought as much,
from its previous articles ou the mbji-e-t. It
needed no other confession to satisfy us of
that " fact" Our neighbor aks our authority
for the statement that Mr. Harris, if present,
would have voted differently from his col
league. We cheerfully state that his position
was made kuown to us through a private
source, in Washington, which wedeem unques
tionable. We have not seen any public ex
pression from Mr. IUbkis ; but the L'i.u.n ami
American may rest assured that we were care
ful to have evidence of the fact before we
made the statement.
The Union and Amerii-an coutinti": "But
we o know that it was no more m-cewary for
Mr. IUkkis to be abneut thaa for Mr. Davis."
If you will take the trouble to look into the
"facts" you will tiud that in the co of Mr.
IUrkis testimony was taken before a com
mission, and that on tbo 15th of January Mr.
IlkJUtUi obtaiued leave of absence from the
House from time to time, to attend to ta'aiug
that testimony, lie was, therefore, abscut on
business of importance to himself, and that
brought about by his democratic oppoticut.

'' : J ; c CkrroBEB, 1857.
Editor Arte York Weekly Derpatch :
" There are epochs in everr medical man's
history, each of which comprises a lift-time of
horror. Only tliree snort weeks ago I was one
of the gayest students of medicine and sur
gery in the United States. To-day well, let
me not anticipate.
Two years have elapsed since I was sent
from Mobile, bv mv father, to study mi dicine
at the North. I lit-tened to my first course of
lecluri-s in J uilad lpuia, and there made the
acquaintance or I roiessor , who is, pro
bably the best demonstrator, in physiology,
that ever taugnt the young idea bow to shoot,
aliopathically, on this side of the Atlantic. 1
was fortunate enough to become a particular
favorite of his, and was introduced bv him,
with an especial flourish, to oue of tha clever-
eft surgeons, I think, in the world. His name
is . I will call him the Professor, how
ever. He is one of those individuals for whom
you at once conceive a great dislike, or a .won
derful partiality, and it was the latter I, at the
first time we met, felt for him.
He Has a strange being; at least be seemed
so to me upon our first meeting, aud forever
afterwards. Oftentimes he drank deeply, and.
while under the influence of drink, he would
let tall curious hints coocerukig " blighted
hopes," " the rascality of kindred,", aud " the
folly of supposing any anection sprang from
the ties of consanguinity." On one of these
communicative occasions he told me a heart
rending historv of family exiKiriences. I
gathered by piecemeal, from his conversations,
the fact that one ot his own blood bad treated
him most heartlessly, aud driven him by fraud
of the grossest character, from bis native place
to this country, peuniless and friendless.
I ought to say, ci jaont, that his drinking
bouts were conducted strictly upon the gen
tlemanly plan, and were seldom or never
made knowu to the public, or even to the ma
jority of those who ranked anion?: his imme
diate friends; and furthermore, I should re
mark that he is well advanced in years, al
though no doubt 3ou know that already.
" My evil spirit is upon ni i," he would
sorn-times say to me, and then, he would illus
trate, iu bis conduct and manner, the most
hiugular phases of hypochondria I ever wit
nessed. It appears that he was bom in the town of
C , ( I muni be guarded, for I am now
violating confidence.) and was unfortunate
enough, considering the laws, which give the
elder brother evtry thing, to ! ushered into
the world after b;s brother John. For this
frrrt he felt the in tensest affection. To him
he confided a history of his hopes, to him he
looked, more than to his infirm father, for ad
vice; to him he communicated a narrative of
his love, and of his successful' wooing. The
maiden of his choice, was hentiuli biui in wealth
and station, but his brother approved of that
choice, and he was content. It is necessary
to my object, penning this narrative, only to
fctate that the elder brother seduced the girl;
robbed, by a fraud of the basest character,
her honorable lover of all his iivaiis. (also
reducing the old father to penury by forger
ics.t and then dccampeel, takiug the girl along,
" Did vou never take veng-nnce upon He
seducer?'' I inquired, when be related these'
facts to me.
"I did not regard either of them as being
worthy of my anger," he replied, '-aud I nev
er followed them an inch."
" Did you ever hear from them?" I queried.
" Yes several times. The lat news I got
was to the .rftcct tl:it she hud lieceime suame
leos and besotted, aud was living iu a condi
tion of public infamy in l'aris. Of course iu
had left hi r."
" And he?"
" Had become a gambler some wrote to
me, a thief. Here he shuddered. Certain
it was that he had squandered all his ill-gotten
This was all 1 could gather of his early aud
domestic history. But to the point of my
Three weeks ago. the Professor was to ex
plain to us all (a cltue of tud :lit) a certain
condition of the human stomach, and he was
to do tbis practically iu the dissecting room.
There was a dispute as to th'! propriety ot
some of the late Doctor Marshall Hall's teach
ings, with reference to the division of the ner
vous sv stein, and tlie Protestor was to settle
the dispute, scalpel in hand. The division of
Doctor Hall, permit me to say, arranges the
nervous system into tliree sections the cere
bral, or seutiiueut voluntary: the true spinal,
or excito-motor, and the gauglioaic, or nutri
ent, or secretory.
The Professor is one of the most skilful of
lecturers, aud a precise aud haud.-ome demon
strator. His devotion to the anatomical
brant-he's of medical science itmounts almost
to a monomania. The patience with which he
will work around aud elaborate the smallest
preparation for his cabinet, is spider-like.
Connected with the mooted questions con
cerning the stomach, were olh-rs which it is
unnecessary for me to descrilte; but they
made it imperative that the body, to be dis
sected, xhould le that of a male adult some
The uight arrived. We were all in our dissecting-room
apparel. Th-; body eutirely
nude, and completely covered with a cloth, as
is the custom, lay upou the table, and we im
patieutly awaited tli Profesnor's arrival.
The conduct f students in the dissecting
room is not, as I presume the iiiort of your
readers know from the many able sketches
you have published, particularly digaitied. In
fact, it is (iu view of the sad proofs of our
wretched helplessness and mortality spread
around) frivolous, disgusting, ami utterly at
Vufiuiiee with the so-ue. and the b-ilimiite
purpose of the assemblage. Hade jests, pro
fanity, the iat"tnperate use f ardent spirits.
piH'-siiioking, t!U'., are practiced aud iudulge-d
iu by all, or nearly tilL On this uight we
were in the wildest spirits, and when, soon af
ter the hour appointed, the Professor entered,
he found us engaged in a most animated series
of laughs ut the spectuclc of a lighted cigar
stuck between the lips of a half-dissected ue
gro. The Professor appeared to le at joyful as
the studeut. He regaled us with seve,-al an
ecdote more pointed than polite, but calcula
ted to inspire the heartiest mirth. I is'rceiv-e-d
that he was in his lsst mood. There he was.
a perfect picture of the mau of science, bend
ing, for the moment, from the dignities of his
station, so as to insure a fceliug of ease to
those who bail cou;rcgatcd to receive his in
structions. And case, in the presence of the
preceptor, let uw tell you, is very serviceable
to a pupil.
"It astonislilntr." he said, as he prepared
hiuMulf for tlm tHisiuevfl of the liitit, "how
soou we get to be fauiitiai with the r lies ot

and thcttj as If tha UttoruincBt had been a

ountenauce most horribly contorted, sprang
p and seized the Professor by the gown, and
luen fell back quiescent. A glance of horror
end recognition seemed to pass between the
fsubject" and the Professor. He. as if struck
by lightning, staggered back, with a loud ery,
or rather shriek, and stood, in an attitude of
despair and wild terror, gazing vacantly into
BefoKJ we could recover from our terror and
despair, he had fainb d.
We looked at the body; the muscles of the
face were working those of the limta were
twitching convulsively, and yet, as after in
vestigation proved, it "was dead. Why it should
have made this strange manifestation is not
to be resolved into a matter of certainty. One
of the physicians connected with the institu
tion says that he has witnessed the same phe
nomena among the bodie-s of those who died
suddenly in fits, as well as of those who were
slain by cholera. Heaven only knows the
reason of the terrific and curicTus demonstra
tion! But the strangest part of my story re
mains to be told.
We naturally supposed that the Professor
swoone d from fright. We applii d restorati vets,
and finally be exhibited indications of a con
sciousness We explained to him that the show
of life given by the poor, faded form upon the
table was purely spasmodic, and fallacious;
but he incredulously shook his heud, mutter
ed, "it was the hand of Ood.': and relapsed
into insensibility. A second time we restor
ed him to his senses; and his first words were:
"K move the subject! Hide it from my
sight !" and then, as if agnin horror-stricken,
he fell into violeut couvulsious.
We remained near him until he seemed to
have recovered from the ellects of the scene
enough to be left in cbnrgtr of one watcher.
Before we retired, however, the explanation
of theProfessor's extreme aftright at the :ene
of horrorwas made. The revelation (for such
it was) given under pbdge of secrecy a
pledge extorted from me by the surrounding
circumstances. The corpse into which the
Professor was alnuit to plunge the scalpe,
was that of tin liriAher !
How or when he had reached this country
is not known. But it is known, that after
earning an unenviable notoriety among horse
jockeys, gamblers, and the victims or profliga

den of thieves well knowu to the police. Here
he was seized with desease, and deprived of

imputation of a want of courtesy, yet I have
an excuse to eitter for it, which your generous

It gives ns great pleasure to lay the follow.
Ing letter from Philip S. White, Ea., before
our reader : -
rauaDELnrii, Dec. 4tb, 1M7. ,
Dr AmJermm Your letter of yetrrdy,
enquiring whether 1 axa engaged la lh Uqnur
traffic, came duly to band. My reply is, that
I never sold a glass of liquor in my life,' and
would not do so, before God, for the wealth of
the country. The story is an invention of the
enemy : : and the surprise about it to me is.
that one of your knowledge of me could have I
believed it. - .
During the long and painful watchings, of
both night and day, over the decline of health
and final death of my wife, I liecame so pros
strate and out of health myself that, by medi
cal advice,! resorted to the use of ale as a re
medial agent for my physical affliction. I was,
perhaps, too public in my use of this remedy,
in my position in the reform ; and on account
of. which my Division thought proper to strike,
my name from the list of its members. For
this I cared but little, for, with a-mind con
scious of its own rectitude, and with habits
Uk well established to fear a vice which I have
so long and so successfully resisted and de
nounce d, I disregard alike the suspicions of
friends and the calumny of foes. . I do not
know-whether I will again connect myself
with the Order of the Sons of Temperance,
but you may rest assured that I shall continue,
as I have been for near twenty years, covered
all over with a thick blanket of uncompromis
ing, unmistakable, ete-rual hatnd to the whole
machinery of the infernal traffic in intoxicat
ing liquors. - Y'ours. Ac. . -

A Hetuarkable Aurora Ilorealls.
An officer of the steamer Powbattan gives
the follow ing description of an Aurora Bore

cy ol the coloring of w hicli beggared descrip
tion": "The btmr whs S A. M., and the Aurora was
in the shape of a mammoth low. The string
ot this bow was a dense oblong blutf of cum
ulons clouds that extended from N. E. by E.
to S. V. Its highest elevation was atulined
immediately uuder the North Star, about -5
deg.. and the space between the boWand the
string was of a rich piuk bile. The shades of
this piuk near the string were inconceivable,
fain I and soft, but as the eye raided itself to
ward the bow, they U gau to d m u in rich-ue-ss,
uutil where they abruptly terminated at
the sharp almost black outlines of iu lower
edge, the intense richness of coloring, cotu
biued with the suddenness of the contrast, re
sulted in a couiltiuatiori of marvellous beauty
and rare grandeur. 1 thought this was ail
ve-ry tine, but when a do?, -o or more columns
of a bright white and piiosporcsc.-ut light shot
dow u, fau-ltke. from the dark ui Toco of the
bow, apparently ctrnvergiug to that part of
the string where the arrow would tit as a cen
tre, aud when the ce ntre of lb- larobient
and palpitatiiic; coIucium of Northern light
grew and expanded uutil it apparently absorb
ed th-se nearest it o;i cither aide, and when,
in addition to this, a beau KM grtt-uadi blue
vo. md lculy observed to spring into xit

the delicate piuk, aud phosphorescent white
