Nashville and Bowtui Coal Compa
ny.' - This company organized in this city on the
17th of last month, under a charter granted
by the Legislatures of Tennessee . and Ken
tacky. The mines which it in the object of
the company to Work, are in Clinton county,
Ky., six miles 'from the town 'of Rowena, on
the Cumberland river; and underlie some 405
acres of . land. ' The strata are. on an average,
three and a half feet in thkknesc "in many
parts nearly fire feet. The quantity is suffi
cient to give the Company employment, and
to supply the amplest demand of the markets
on the Cumberland, for a century to come,
whilst the quality is of a very superior char
acter, for all the purposes for which coal is
used. Supplies of this coal have been sold
in this market, and consumed in the grate, in
the forge, and in the furnace for making steam,
as well as experimented with to tet its use
fulness for making gas. For all these purpo
ses, it was found to answer admirably. In
fact, no better coal need be debirid for any
use. Running through Short and Poplar
mountains, the coal is susceptible of being
mined with more ease and to greater advan
tage than usuaL One of the viens has al
ready abeen pierced ICO yards at one pointf
s and 100 yards at another, with the necessary
crws connections for ventillation, and is ready
for the reception of a strong force of miners.
A railroad has been projected to connect the
mines with the river, and three miles of it are
already graded and ready for the cross ties.
The remaining three miles will be graded as
fust as possible. To do this, and to iron the
road with a substantial rail, such as will an
swer for locomotives to run on, and also to
make other improvements necessary to facili
tate the economical shipment of the coal, the
Directory have authorized the President of the
company Mr. B. D. Hicks to sell one hund
red thousand dollars worth of stock, or so
much thereof as may be nectMtry. This
stock is now ready and Mr. Hicks will
proceed to offer it for sale. We trust he
will meet .with immediate succem; believ-
iai. as we do. that the invet-tnient is one
that will yield remunerating returns. We will
give a few of the principal reasons upon which
this opiniou is founded.
1st The coal is of excellent quality and
2d. The navigation of the Cumberland river
from Rowena to this place, the principal mar
ket, is ordinarily good, there being no st-rious
obstructions, and coal boats cuu come down
safely upon a six feet rise.
3d. The coin puny have a large body of
timber lands, have already constructed a
steam saw mill, and can build their bouts at
half the expense usually incurred. Labor
and provisions at the miues are alf o low, there
being no competition.
4th. The upper mines, whence the bulk of
our supplies of coal are brought, are above
Smith's shoals, and can only send down coul
upon a "flood tide," and at heavy expense for
mininir. makiuz boats, &.C.. and hubject to
severe losses by the sinking of bout. The
other sources, present and prospective, on the
railroads, are also subject, or will Ite, to such
heavy expenses that they cannot alford to sell
coal below certain prices, without loss, whilst
the Nashville and Roweua Coal Company can,
and grow rich at it.
We will not extend this article by multi-
tlyinir rnmuuL Thoau u ill snflioe, at lout to
iuduce those who may wish to embark in an
enterprise of this nature, to investigate the
subject, which is all that is necessary to con
viuce them of the advantages of this one.
The subject of tittup fuel is one of great la
tmst to i he citizens of Nashville. They
have not forgotten the exorbitant prices which
in times of searcity, iu midwinter, they have
been forced to pay. Last winter, owing to a
combination of fitvoruLlt circuiustuucei
such as occur not more tbau once in a decade,
they escaped. Let them contribute their
means to at-sure the sjKidy success of the
Nashville and Rowena Company, and they
will never strain see in the blaze or their
cheerful hearths, the graspiug band of sordid
Avarice; but a brighter picture to augment
But there is another feature of the advan
tages of this Company to which wc desire to
invite attention. The mining of coal is not
their exclusive object. Their lands are stud
ded with an abundance of the linest timber of
the temperate zone, poplar, pine, white oak,
cedar, walnut, ic. They propose also to
furnish the Cumberland river markets, and
their dependencies, with supplies of IuuiIkt,
the demand for which, though already great,
is wideninir and deepening every year. This
is a feature of much interest to builders, aud
indeed to all who have use for luuiUr. It
should command their attention, their good
will, and such aid as they cau render. The
benefits, in that case, would be mutual.
Ia conclusion we will add that Mr. IIicxs
can be found at the oflice of Mr. W. L. Port),
on Cherry street, and when not in any order
that may be left for him will be attended

Col. Kinney In "Vlcarneun.
The correspondence of the 'Washington
States, of which mention has been made by tel
egraph, is as follows, under date of the 16th
ult., at Panama:
It may be important to you, or some of your
numerous friends, to know that Col. Kinnpy
has been for some time treating with the Mor
mons, with a view of settling them on the
Musqnito coast. Some month since he des
patched from this place an English Mormon,
empowered to sell them on--half of what is
known as the ' Shepherd and Haley Grant."
I learn from a gentleman here, who is partial
ly in the secret for everything respecting
the negotiation lias yet been kept from the
public that by the lust California steamer the
Colonel received intelligence that his proposi
tion had been favorably received by the Mor
mons, and tbnt this intelligence has enabled
him to raise this friends say) thirty thousand
dollars in cash, and some eighty thousand more
in merchandise aud supplies, with which, and
accompanied by about twenty followers, he
has sailed for Grey town.
The goods, and perhaps the money, fJr a
few weeks ago he had not the means to pay
his board, and was comp iled to borrow from
friends,) were furnished him by some English
merchants. I understand be expects to obtain
through the influence Of Gen. Lamar, (the
General of course knows nothing of the ne
gotiation with the English Mormons,) permis
sion to colonize the country under the Nicara
guan flag, obligating the colonists to help
defend Nicaragua against the fillibusters.
He expects that the raising of the Nicara
guan flag, where for years the government
of Nicaragua has not lieen able to sustain
it, will induce the Martinez Government
to grant him the privilege of colonizing.
Failing to obtain that privilege, he will
raise the Mnsquito flag. As this is under
Pritish protection, he expects no serious
opposition from any quarter. In fact, it is
diflicult to see how any opposition can be
raised, except, perhaps, at the port of San
Juan del Norte, which, by the Vrisarri treaty,
is declared a free port, and considered as le
longiug to Nicaragua. Put then the abroga
tion of the Clavtou-Pnlwer treatv will (ac
cording to the interpretation of the United
States) restore the Mosquito protectorate.
England has never abandoned it Those now
residing at San Juan del Norte hold the place
under the Mnsquito flag. What is there to
prevent the Mormons from doing tie same ?
England is anxious, determined, if possihlo,
to keep the Yankees out of Central America.
The English Mormons would lie an effectual
barrier against them, and doubtless would re
ceive not only the sympathy and moral support
of the English, French and your own Free
sowers but, as citizens of the Mnsquito king
dom, the m-cessary Pritish protection.
The United States Government will find
out, when it is loo late, that it is overreached
by Great Pntain lit its Central American p-d
icv. Enirland can well afford to sanction the
Yrissari treaty: to counsel a peueeful policy
now. by peaceable emigration to Nicaragua
after she has driven by force the Nicaragnan
authorities from the entire eastern coast, and
replaced thereby her own, under the flimsy
guise of the Mosquito Protectorate1. Her
plan is to build up an empire on the coast,
that must eventually absorb the crumbling
community of the interior. The plan is a
practical one; the foundation of the empire is
already laid, aim us completion is oiuy
question of time.
A correspondent of a New York paper,
in a letter dated the 18th ult., at Panama,

LITTLE KUTirs SCCllHT;
Artist's Love and Ambition.
I never had a home like other children
when 1 was a child. I w as enrlv left without
father or mother, and almost without kith or
kin. I was left poor, too, without enough,
baby as I was, even to ket p uie iroru being a
burden on those who were forced to take

strangely sorrowful stern, too. and pitiless,

ering memorial of the vanished centuries
only chilled me.
I had not seen my grandmother for eleven
years. v ben we last met she was an active,
bright-looking woman, of five and thirty.
When she greeted me at her threshold now 1
did not recognise her; she had grown faded,
anu paie, ana old.
"i w& stronger and vounzer when I saw
you last Ruth," 6he said gently, w hen I spoke
of the change in her; but there was a real and
anxious look in her face that I thought must
be set there by other causes than advancing
years or railing strength.
"And my cousin Noel??'
- He was her only son a man ten years or so
older than I was. I had seen him once elev
en years ago and bad one day lmen carried
in his strong arms through a hazel copse, when
long wandering amidst fallen leaves hud wet
my feet a small kindness that I had remem
She answered: "You will scarcely remem
bcr Noel;" and I presently found that she said
rifrht. As we sat together a little while after
talking by the fire, a man entered the room,
and coming up to me, put out his hand with a
single cold plu-ase of welcome. I looked up
into his lace as 1 answei ed bis salute, and with
that look, something that had been a kind of
hope in me, sank down with a quick short
pang. No; I had no recognition for this Noel
Eriekson. This cold repellent face was all
strange to me. It was a small thing to speak
of a slight disappointment : and yet out of
my child s prose lite, it was something to lose
the sunshine of one pleasant memory.
We fell calmly, and at once, into a quiet,
regular life. I bad little education and few-
tastes. I had been accustomed to spend hours
every day passively laying stitch to stitch up
on some long monotonous work. 1 Bet
square yard of canvas now in a frame, and
with my pattern and my colored wools, J
quickly set to work. The thing, when finish-
ed, I said, should be a cushion for my god
mother. At which she thanked me, and took
up some humbler work herself. They were
not rich, aud she had other sewing to do than
to make cushions.
We passed our days alone, for Noel Eriek
son, though lie did not olten leave the house,
had his own work, and his own room to work
in. He was an artist, and he labored in his
studio early and late. What came of his la
boring I did not often see. Sometimes his
mother took me to his work-room, and made
me look at some completed drawing during
these first months they were generally slight
water-color sketches In-fore it left the house;
but these were all I saw, and, amongst them,
few impressed me much. I used to tell Mrs.
Eriekson (for it was necessary when I looked
at them to say something) that I was no judge
of painting aud that w as true; but it was al
so true that in my heart I did not like my
cousin oel s pictures. Even in his slightest
drawings there w as at. all times something fe
verish and restless. They might have power
iu them I did not know but they had no
repose. I say I did not like nor understand
him. He was a shadow in the house an un
sociable, care-worn, silent man. His presence
made a gloom iii the place of sunshine: his as
pect chilled me w ltu w inter s cold. lie was
unhappy himself, and be brought discomfort
as his companion. I was afraid of him a little;
I pitied him much; I liked him not at all.
Vet I did not regret my coming to iny god
mother's house. If Noel chilled me, his moth
er did not. I had known so little affection in
my life, that the quiet love she presently be
gun to bestow on me, stole into my heart like
very sunshine. I returned her what she gave
to me; and iu spite of Noel Eriekson, aud the
gloominess of the ancieut town, my new home
became very pleasant to me. She said that I
made it brighter to her, too; perhaps I did. I
can still remember the sound of my merry
laughter, as through the months of that first
winter it used to ring, wakening smiles at
least to joiu with it, through the low-roofed
rooms of the old house.
It was an afternoon of early Spring. The
days were long, and the birds had legun to
build their nest under the gables of the old
church. There were blossoms, too, npon the
trees and pale spring flowers iu the old garden
sheltered by tho church wall. I sat by the
window sewing and singing. It was a pleas
ant season to in this bright spring time. I
was not thoughtful perhaps 1 understood
only one fraction of its meaning and its love
liness. ; but it hud spoken to me all my life of
youth and hope, and I was young and hopeful.
The sun shone warm upou the old church
towers, far away there was a sound of joy
bells. 1 stopped my singing at times to listen
to them it was a right glad sound for this
"ltuth, will you come? It is ready," Mrs.
I turned quickly from the outer sunshine
with a momentary feeling of compunction :
something was hapeiiihg in the house to-day,
and I had forgotteu it. My godmother thought
it a great thing ; it was not great to me, it
was only this that Noel had completed the
picture that had Ix-en his chief winter's work,
and it was to liescnt to "the Academy" to-day.
It had never seen it yet. I rose at Mrs.
Erickson's invitation, and Mlowtd her up
stairs. She was excited and glad, and her pale
face was even biightened by a (lush of color.
I was not glad, nor almost even curious. Au
entrance into my cousin's studio had long
censed to le looked upou by me as even a pos
He was in the room when we came in, but
not at bis easel. The space alxnit that was
vacant, and upon it stood his framed picture.
We went up together and stood U-tore it.
It was a large picture, divided into two
compartments. Isitli representing the same
scene the sea-shore, girt to the ri;ht by a
line of rocks; but iu oue the water was lying
calmly under an azure sky, und the spam of
the rocks glittered iu sunshine ; in the other
the sea was lashed into high crests of foam,
and oue red cleft in the heavy thunder clouds
illumined the whole canvass with a lurid light.
1 looked at 1sth pictures, but 1 turned from
the second quickly. The w arm, soft sunshine
the calm, blue water these things I liked;
that picture had rest and Ix-auty aud quiet

creation 1 had ever seen of Noel's4 I w as glad
to le able to rpcuk w hat I felL I exclaimed,
"This Is Wautiful."
"Which is beautiful, Ruth!" Noel suddenly
I looked at him as he came towards us ;
there was a slight contemptuous scorn in his :
face that for a moment irritated me. I knew
the answer that he cxjR-ctcd, aud I gave it to
him half defiantly.
"The first 1 "
" You do not like th other, then J
"1 um no judge of pictures."
"Perhaps not. Put you think what !'
There was an ungentle smile ujxm his lis;
another look would have mad me humble,
but that angered me.
"I think,'' 1 answer d quickly, "that pic
ture were meant to make us happy wheu we
look at them aud that one dcs not"
"Put pictures cannot only lie painted when
men are happy, Ruth," my godmother said;
"and if they are unhappy, their pictures will
show sins of their sorrow."
"Why ue d they!" I answered, boldly. "If
they feel sorrow can they not leurn to repress
it? Can th y uot struggle agaiast, iut ad of

perhaps, in the strength of sorrow?
I had heard tales f persecutions suffered in
this city loug ago. With a strange interest I
sat and pondered upon the men who might
have reared those blackened stones-upon the
hands that might have cut those old devices.
They were all solemn and stern they were
not joyous. There was no luxury in tbem of
waving leaves there were no birds fluttering
amidst twisted branches. There was neither
joy nor laughter in the sculptured forms that,
from the grisly heads and outstretched griffin
claws down-to the solemn angels leaning to
wards the doors, stood in their broken might
and their stern silence.
The yellow light was fading back behind the
starry trefoils of the windows, and God's Biars
were coming out in heaven. But these were
familiar mysteries; I did not think of them to
night. With an earnestness I scarcely under
stood. I sat till it was dark, thinking of the
mysteries of the dead hearts of those w ho once
witli living bands and living thoughts, cut out
the t tarry traceries npon those windows.

Noel's picture went. When the excitement
attendant on its completion and dispatch were
over, my god-mother's brief look of gladness
vanished. After a week or two she began to
get more than ever pale and anxious.
'They may reject it Ruth," she said to me
one day. "They reject manp pictures."
1 bad not known that; to me till now that un
known "Academy," whither it was gone had
been a boundless repertory. Receiving this
new idea I drew towards my godmother with
a strange sympathy. Of late I bad begun
dimly to guess what Noel's success or Noel's
failure were to her. From that day forward
we looked and waited for news together. It
w as hard for her, I think, but in her anxiety
she had no other companionship than mine.
After three weeks the decision came. It
came in a letter which had to lie with us a
whole afternoon unopened, for when it arrived
Noel was from home. It was evening almost
night when he returned. As he came in, he
took it from his mother's- hand. unl vaiitcd it,
standing with his back to us, to the window;
elsewhere in the room there was no light to read
it. There he opened it, and, having read it,
stood utterly silent. -
She had not sat down. After a few mo
ments she went up to him and laid her hand
upon his arm. He turned round at the
touch and looked at her; they each looked at
the other. She never asked to see the letter.
He only said:
" We cannot help it, mother." "
Then she tried to answer bim, and broke
down. He took her in bis arms, and kissed
her again and again. But he said no more to
her: he left the room without another word.
She had sunk down into a seat beside the
window. After a little I went up close to her.
I had nothing to say, but I knelt down at her
feet, and took her hand and put it to my lips.
In the darkness she cried a little, we both
cried. 1 was eorry from the bottom of my
For many days after this night, throughout
the house there was an undefined anxiety and
restlessness. My godmother had leen deeply
grieved, but Noel was unhappy with a bitter
sorrow to which her's bore no parallel. He
never spoke of his disappointment; it would
have Ikm-u better if he had: but he brooded
over it until he wore his strength away. Slow

ly, oui sureiy. ne became bodily ill: he grew
so gaunt and thin, that, with his flushed hollow
checks and burning eyes, he used to make my
neari sao to see bun. it was iu vain that my
poor godmother would urge him to take rest.
I do not think he could help it: he could not
rest, lie worked until he could work no
more. Oue night, when Mrs. Eriekson and I
wre sitting alone toge h -r, in the silence
there came a sound above u the powerless
fall of something on the ground. It was Noel
w ho had fainted nt his work. Thev raised
bim up and conveyed bim to his bed. and he
did not rise from it.

It appears she was racing with the Eclinse

time to make fast to the wharf-boat.
Mr. Anderson, who was in a verv sickly
condition, was carried on at some hazard ;
to prevent being left behind, Miss Edmondson
had to jump aboard at the risk of her life.
The mate was earnestly requested to delay a
moment for the rest of the passengers and the
luggage. He stated "he would do so," but
almost in the next breath halloo d to ibe capt

under way, with the stage plank still extend

Mr. Edmondson, who was standing on the
wharf-ltoat superintending the shipment of bis
baggage, was tripped up by it. knocked be

Pn. Scott Among Us. Among the ajrivals
by the Philadel phia yesterday evening, we are
pleased to notice the name of the Rev. Dr.
Scott, of San Francisco w ho comes out to
attend the Presbyterian (Jem-nil Assembly,
which is to meet in this city shortly. Dr?
Scott will no doubt 1h warmly welcomed by
the hosts ot JrieuUs w ho know him so well
and so long as pastor o the First Presbyte
rian Church of c Orleans. It is under
stood, we lielieve, that the Doctor designs set
tling again in this city, and it is supposed that
he will resume his clerical labors as the pastor
of a new church to be erected for him. A. O.

the Bavarian manufacturer cannot sue the Ba

. This is by far the moet ABSORBING and THRILLING
TALE OF LiFE AMONG THE INDIANS ever published.
The Heart-rending Trials, Suffering!) and Privations of
the lovely heroine, BLANCHE BERTRAND, whose life
was in constant peril, and who sufierel more than pen
can relate, during her captivity, will enlist the sym
pathies of every reader.
The popular and distinguished author has executed
his task in a masterly manner. In this class of Tales
it is universally admitted that he has no equal at the
present day. In speaking of this new Tale the Ledger
says: "It is a narrative of wild and perilous adven
ture among the savages of our western border, and
is full of stirring incidcut3, intensified by poetic fire
and mellowed by subduing pathos. At the outset it
takes hold of the heart with a vigorous grasp, and leads
the imagination captive."
The New York Ledger also contains contributions
from the pens of the following distinguished writers :
GEORGE I). PRENTICE,
MRS. L. H. SIGOURNEY,
- T. S. ARTHCR,
PYLVAXC5 COBB, JR.,
WILLIAM ROMS WALLACE,
And a host of other populartiuthors, w hose names con
stantly apix-ar in its columns.
As an iiKlicatinu of the jMipularity of the LEDGER we
Deed only meiitinn the simple fact that its circulation
is larger than that of any TEN literary paers in the
couutry. Its great success is owing lo the fact that it
s'-cr.res the best writers in the country, and spares no
expense iu" getting up the best family Paper a paper
of high moral tuie.
The exalted reputation of its well knowu contribu
tors, the practical and unmisteakably pure and healthy
character of all its articles, aud the care which is tak
en that not even one offensive word sh ill appear iu its
columns, have gained for the NEW YORK LEDGER a
position that no literary paper has ever before occu
pied. We feel, ninl always have felt, since theLEDUER
attained its immense circulation, that a tremendous
responsibility rested on us, and have endeavored to
discharge that responsibility conscientiously, feeling
confident that ultimately we should receive the thanks
of thousands and tens of thousauds of families.
The LEDGER is for sale every week at all the jieri
odical stores throughout the I'nited States.
The subscription price is $'- per annum when sent
by mail, but no subscriptions are wanted from towns
where there are news offices established.
