The l(.w Party" movement In Del
r . wre.
On the 10th of thia month, a mats meeting
r of the opposition to the sham democracy was
held at Dover, in Delaware. The meeting
was large, and each of the several counties in
. the State represented. Ex-Senator Sfbcance
presided, assitted by J. M. Baku, as Secretary.
The following platform was adopted:
That the name of the party be '-The People's
Partt." That Us principles be :
. That the citizens of the Territories be allow
ed to settle tbeir own institutions and their
own forms of government.
I That the constitution of every new State
be submitted to the people for ratification or
rejection before being accepted by Congress.
That a tarin" for revenue be laid with inci
dental protection to home industry.
That when the revenue of the Government
exceeds the expenditure, such excess as may
be derived from the rale of the public lands
'shall be divided among the States, both old as
well as new.
That the importation of foreign criminals
and paupers be prohibited.
One of the principal actors in this meeting
was Saiu-Towxhend, a leading democrat, who
has for years pabt been prominent in the coun
cils of the party. The Memphis Appeal of the
23d insU, says of' the platform:
"There is nothing in it that smacks of 'Re
publicanism.' but, on the contrary, it is pro
vided in tne piaiiorm una. me ciuzeus oi iue
Territories bf allowed to settle their own in
stitutions and their own forms of government,
which is in contradiction to the old theory of
the 'Republicans' that it should be done by
Conzret-s. without regard to tbeir wishes. The
Americans' and such Old Line Whigs as
have never embraced 'Republicanism, are at
the bottom of this 'People's' party movement
although it is evidently favored by a consi
derable section of the 'Republicans' who are
becoming tired of the negro itue, and imagine
that the new organization aObrds a better
Drospect of success. The 'Republican' lead
ers. such as Chase, Seward & Co.. knowing
that tbeir political prestige will be destroyed
it the 'Republican' party is merged in the
People's' organization, w ill desperately op
pose it, and w ill seek to make the former par
ty devour the latter."
The Knoxville Register says the new
branch of the State Bank has not yet gone
into operation there, but it learns that the
officers have been at work recently filling up
and signing notes, and making ready fur
opening at an early day.
A new building near the post-office has been
fitted up in handsome and convenient style
for its accomodation.
The MemphU people are wondering when
their branch will begin to pour out its notes.

The telegraphic synopsis of the Europa's
news bad a brief referance to certain serious
riot iu Belfast, Ireland, but said nothing
about the "cause" of them. Our files make
good the omission. It was the old feud between
Roman Catholics and Orangemen. It broke
out on a Sunday afternoon, on the occasion
of the burial of a woman, the daughter of a
member of the Roman Catholic Gun Club.
The mourners" seemi d to have walked in
procession, and some of them carried green
boughs, an emblem of offense to the Protest

a fight commenced on a grand scale, lasting
nearly an hour. For forty minutes this
battle raged with terrible vigor. Stones fell
as thick as hail in the midist of the rioters:
men fell as if struck by a gun-shot, and wo
men too. for the ".-of ter" sex, if the term is
applicable here, were among the most promi

is described by the Belfast. Xuilhrrn Whig:
'At one time the Roman Catholic lody

Orange party gave way with all the stratagem
and mameuvreiug of a military campaign, for
the purpose of entangling their foe. Once the

that the Romau Catholics might pursue them
over the wall which divided them, taking
care to leave some sharp stone-thrower iu

This contest lasted for about half an hour,

In a moment's time they rushed at the

The follow ing letter from a member of Con

Ka'xuncd Intelligencer, calls the attentiou of to
bajco growers to a sulject of much import
an to their interests :
J j the Editor of the Intelligencer ;
1 locus or lUrKKSLNTinvm,
June LiUi, 1N4S.
Gknti-kmeji : By the terms of the Reci
procity Treaty with Great Britain of June
6th, 1854, the article of "unmanufactured to
bacco." or in other words, tobacco u the leaf is
admitted free of duty into her "British North
American Provinces." The first sectiou of
the treaty defines what is meant ly the words
"British North American Provinces," and
confines this limitation to "CMuuda, New
Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edwards, and
the several islands thereuulo adjacent."
By the third article of this treaty it is pro
Tided "that the articles enunuraud iu the
schedule hereunto auuexed, being the growth
and produce of the aforesaid British colonies,
or of the United Slate, shall be admitted iuto
each country rpixlivvly free of duty."
Without enumerating ttie various articles
of production included in the said schedule,
it is suCcient for my present purp.es to say
that "unmanufactured' or leaf lobavco is in
cluded. As the case now stands, according to
the provisions of this treaty, tobacco grower
and tobacco merchants can export to the
British North American Colonies, couuiuiug
a population of more than three millious of
peopla, unmanufactured or leaf tobacco, frt
of duly. Whal'is to prevent the capitalists of
tlMwe colonies iuvestitig tbeir capital ill tnan
ufacturml tobacco, , the growth ol the United
btaaea, and then converting the saute, by the
applicatiim of tbeir owu labor, into the "man
ufactured form," and exporting the sumo to
Great Britain, the mother country, on the
same terms that all other colonial productions
"of labor" are now eiorted from these colo
nies? Here i a rich harvest for the profitable
investment of capital, if I am right that they
would bave these privileges.
The excessive duties on tobacco now Im
posed by Great Britain, when exported d rect
jyfroin the United States, would thus be
voided, and the tobacco trade uf the U titled
States relieved la a great measure from the
unjust and oppressive restrictions now Im
posed Ly the cupidity of foreign Govrru

si nply to call the attention of the tobacco

The Bltoblie tXeetner on Judicial Des
In the opening of the charge Justice Camp
bell declares: "The Constitution of the Unit
ed States recognizes the people as the source
wbence It derived its origin ana autnortty."
Not many years ago bis Honor would bave
said : "The Constitution of the United States
recognizes the people of the State,' &c., Ac,
But it is the part of a good judge, so the law
books tell us. ampUare ntrudtctionem to ex
tend his jurisdiction and so, we presume
it is the duty of a good federal judge to break
down the sovereignty of the States, centralize
the Government, and finally brine all matters
of civil litigation within the cognizance of
me federal courts.
"In wisdemeanors, all accessories fhare as
principals : and the accesccrv is he who bv
hire, commerce, counsel or conspiracy, and be
wno by snowing an express liking, approbation
or assent to an illegal enterprise, does aid and
abet a party to commit it," Thus the expres
sion of an opinion, the manifestation of sym
pathy, is made criminal. - If wo are to return
to persecution for opinion's sake, and the Fe
deral Judiciary is to be made the instrument
for such inquisitorial proceedings, the sooner
the Federal Government is destroy d the bet
ter. If these be the principles which are to
guide the judgments of Federal Courts, perish
at once and for ever all traces of a govern
ment so odious in its doctrines, so detestable
in its decisions. When such words fall from
lips of the Federal Judiciary, the people of
the United States bave lost their ancient spirit
and ancient valor, if they tamely submit to
doctrines which make slaves of themselves
and their children.
But the Associate Justice of the Siiureme
court oi the L nited fciates io not satisfied with
an interpretation of the act of 1818. wh'ch
makes a large portion of the reoole of the
States criminals, because they hold andexpress
certain opinions, lie is not content with
placing nearly the whole country between the
Potomac and the Rio Grande under the ban of
common criminality. After treating of the
act of 1818, his Honor comments on the sta
tutes against the slave trade, and thus con
"The nature and objects of the laws for the
suppression of the slave trade, are not similar
to those that prohibit illegal military enter
prises on the part of individuals against friend
ly States. Congress has. in either case, legis
lated to protect the exposed, weak and unde
fended from the violence, lust and brutality
or the strong, exerted in opposition to nation
al right. And had Congress denounced both
classes of cases as piratical, they would have
violated no rule of language or of law."
This, taken in connection with the passages
we have before quoted, contains a direct and
palpable insult to the public conscience. When
we consider other facts which have transpired
since the charge to the Grand Jury was deliv
ered, the sentiments and opinions therein
stated tiecome parts of a most wanton inva
sion of public rights of a most dangerous
and destructive violation of individual li
After the charge to the Grand Jury, the
trial of Walker and others was proceeded
with. It was to be expected, from the nature
of the opinions already given out by Judge
Campleil, that the decisions in the case would
be strong against the prisoners. Uut no one
was prepared, even by the extraordinary
charge of the Grand Jury, for the marked and
decided feeling we can use no other word
the Court evinced against the defendants.
The District Attorney sinks into obscurity
before the pertinacious zeal and cunning skill
with which the Court puts questions to the
witnesses for the United States. The dull
and clumsy mind of Mr. Attorney Semuies
disappears before the ingenious suggestions
and the crafty insinuations with winch .Mr.
Justice Campbell admits evidence and strives
to make impressions on thennndsof the jury.

and while General Walker was addressing the
jury, he was interrupted by the court and
told that it was not permissible tor him to

ment, lias t fie Allen and bt dition law lieeu
revived? Is it indeed true that a prisoner,
when pleading for bis lilierty it may be, for
his life and character is not to lie permitted
to derogate frtim the character or to criticise
the conduct of the persons connected with
the Federal Government! Are we iu a mon
archy where the maxim prevails that "the
King can do no wrong?"
As for us, we hold that the acts of the
President may ce commented on in a court
of justice with as much freedom and boldness
as the humblest clerk in a department. The
Prseident ibut the minister and agent of the
people of the sovereign States; and his agency
does not exempt him from criticism or cen
sure. If the Chief Executive Inr a proper per
son, honest in his intentions and honorable in
his acts, be does not need the assistance of
judicial power to maintain his character or to
put down his asailauts. Ills conduct is bis
iiest defense; ror do -we suppose that .Mr.
Buchanan will at all thank Justice Campbell
for interposing the ermine bctweeu him und
any accusations which may be brought against
The jtirv, however, refused f find General
Walker guilty. On the contrary, they stood
ten for acquittal and two for conviction, these
latter openly declaring, as we are assured,
that they were influenced entirely by the
charge of the Court. The District Attorney
moved to enter a nolle prosequi, w hich, although
Judge Campbell evinced his repugnance to
it, was finally done, hut as soon as the nolle
was en tend", without inotien bv the counsel
for the Unit-d States, Judge CampU ll entered
a rule to show cause why the defendants
should not give liotid for good behavior and
not to violate the act of lfclri. Ou te hear
ing of this rule, as well a thrjeut the
previous trial, the Justice of the Supreme
Court took In quent opportunities to detract
from the charactor of the defendants.
In his written opinion on the merits of the
rule, his Honor assumes that Gen. Walker has
been a frt quent violator of the law that be
had enteied Nicaragua iu 1855 against the
laws of the United Slatesthat be had laud d
at Puuta Arenas in lo7 in violation of those
laws miul that be was now, according to
newspaper accounts, meditating a new exix di-
tion against Nicaragua. We netd not stig
matize as they deserve such acts of a hih
judicial functionary. Ve will not say how-

who makes use of his place and power to
blast the good name of atiother, however

judge who pursues such practices, ne will
im rely add that Judge campoeii requireu
Gen. Walker and Col. Anderson to enter iuto
recognizances, ou vague rumor and bare sus
picion, without any accusation brought or
The wrong done to these men is not a wrong
to them alone. It is a w roug done to every
one of us. It is a wrong done by the Federal
Judiciary to all the people of all the Stales.
By assuming, iu the face of the action of the
jury, the guilt of (Jen. Walker, Judge Camp
bell has assumed the guilt of all those thous
ands and tens of thousands who have ex
pressed their approbation of the enterprise in
which that gentleman has been engaged. As
suming, then, the guilt of myriads of bis
countrymen, his Honor has yet further brand
ed them with the epithet of -piratical." Not
satisfied with the moral opprobrium of this
base i pithet, he declares his right, and there
fore duty, to biiug all such eisons U-fore his
tribunal', and r quire of thetu bonds for their
future conduct. Could federal tyranny and
oppression further go?
We call upon the eople of these States to
fix the niaik of their reprobation uihui the
fedei al ottic r w ho has committed this assault,
not only upon their sentiments and opiuions,
tmt upon their rights and lileities. Let them

Lev In Bolivar Count r Bflaalppi.
We learn, from a planter in Bolivar county,
some reliable information concerning the im
mense losses sustained by our planting friends
, on the river. In the previous great deluge, in
April, (we adopt his language,) the river was
nigner at rrentiss than it has been since 1828
-caused by the extreme height of the water
T A. A 1 nvm . -
in me Arkansas aoo White nvers which
banked up to an alarming extent but the
levees stood without a single break, except
one at Shotard's. Wre then thought ourselves
secure rrom the June rise, which we would
have been ad we have had a system of police
io guara tne levees during the high water.
But, in this, our Levee Commissioners have
been calamitously negligent. There is a large
amount of cyprew timber cut in the back
swamps, which has been bung there for four
or five years, awaiting some such opportunity
as the present baa afforded, and there is no
doubt but that the raftsmen Lave taken ad
vantage of our unguarded levees, and for the
sake of benefitting themselves a few thousand
dollars, bave destroyed millions of property,
in the way of cotton, corn and stock. The
crevasse at Miles McGehee's, destroyed at the
least estimate 12.000 bales of cotton. The
break at Gen. Clarke's overflows a vast
amount of country, destroying 10,000 bales,
and the break at Col. Galloway's will do an
immense amount of damage, both in the coun
ties of Bolivar and Washington.
No one who has never been an eye witness
can have any idea of the great distress, be
sides losses, that results from an overflow.
To see the fine crops destroyed in an hour,
which have taken the labor of months to make,
to have your stock floating around on rafts,
dying for the want of forage to have your
negroes cooped up in the lofts of cabins and
gin-houses to see the honest profits of years
destroyed, is enervating to the energy, and
falls heavily upon the shoulders of the Levee
Commissioners, upon whom the responsibility
We want a regular Fystem of police upon
our levees, to protect ourselves from the ras
cally raftsmen who infest our back swamps.
There is not a single planter in Bolivar w ho
would not serve in turns himself, or pay a
tax to support guards during the high water.
We believe it is in the power of the Levee
Commissioners to appoint guards but this
they neglected. Witness the result! Millions
destroyed some families rendered destitute
and an incalculable amount of distress.
Had we guards, if a crevasse occurred in the
night, instead of its running all night, and by
morning getting beyond all hopes of leing
closed, it would be discovered by the guards,
w hen it conKj be stopped. When the couuty
officers attempt again to economise, let them
not attempt to sate one dollar for the county
when millions are at issue. Had our levees
been guarded. Bolivar county would have been
dry to-day. We have the best protected county
in the btate, and the best set of levee men as
Cltarlea Dickens' Domettie Vtffleul-
In yesterday's impression of 77e South, we
gave a circumstantsal narrative of the domes
tic difficulties wherein Mr. Charles Dickkxs
is involved, to the surprise of the public and
the possible ruin of his reputation. The story
was from the pen of an anonymous correspon
dent of the New York Herald, and in these
circumstances, viz: the irresponsibility of the
publication and its appearance in the most
mendacious of journals, we found abundant
warrant for incredulity.
Iue currency of the scandal in London has
provoked a statement from Mr. Dickens,
which we insert in another column of this
J he denial is not at all satisfactory. In
truth, it appears to be framed with a distinct
purpose ot mystilication. Air. Dickens ad
mits the fact of a difficulty with his wife, but
says it had been "amicably composed," and.
brought to "an arrangement which involves
no anger or ill-will of and kind." What do
these words imply? That Mr. and Mrs. Dick
ens are reconciled, or have agreed to a
separation? The phrase is studiously arnbigu-
us, but we understrnd it as an acknowledge
ment of a practical divorce.
Vehemence of protestatiou are little to the
purpose when the specific nature of the charges
leinands an eqtialy specific denial. It will
not do for Mr. Dickens to rest his case on an
appeal to the forbearance of the public when
the public are impatient to know whether
his wife has been constrained to leave Lim by
reason of his conjugal infidelities.
Neither can Mr. Dickens aftect a virtuous
ndignation at the publicity of the scandal.
If tiie aff air were lietw een Mr. and Mrs. Bitowx,
ti would merely provoke a lew days' gossip in a
limited locality. But Mr. Dickens enjovB a
world-wide reputation, and he must submit if
ns domestic difficulties lie made the topic of
world-wide discussion. It is the penalty of
greatness. In proportion as he has neglected
the opportunity ol edifying his admirers by a
signal example ol virtuous demeanor, he must
lie content to sutler the punishment of univer
We never had any fancy for the personal

Three and twenty years have passed since
I entered upon my present relations with the

Through all that time I have tried to be as
faithful to the public as they have been to me.
It was my duty never to trifle with them or
to deceive them, or to presume upon their
favor, or do any thing with it but work hard
and justify it. I have always eadeavored to
aiscuarge that duty.
My conspicuous position has often made
me the subject of fabulous stories and unac
countable statements. Occasionally such
things have chafed me. or even wounded me.
but 1 have always accepted them as tne
shadows inseparable from the light of my
notoriety and success. I have never obtruded
any such personal uneasiness of mine upon
the generous aggregate of my audience.
For the first time in my life, and i llieve
for the last. I now deviate from the principle

in my own journal in my own private charac

calling) to lend tbeir aid to the disemination

iu this frantic incoherence, with one another.
But there is a great multitude who know me
through my writings, and who do not know
me otherwise: and I cannot bear that one of

of circulating the truth.
I most solemnly declare, then and this I
do both in my own name and my wife's that

Our community was shocked at the sudden
death of Mrs. Susan D. Turner, wife of Capt.
Daniel B. Turner, about a quarter after three
o'clock, P. M., on Saturday last. She was a
most estimable woman, aiid, for many years,
a devoted member of the Methodist Episco
pal Church. She had an appointment to at
tend a pic uic w ith a few friends ou Saturday
morning. She arose, breakfasted heartily,
aud was, to all appearance, in as good health
as ever. After breakfast, however, she de
clined going to the pic nic, saying she did uot
feel very well, but urged her husband, who
proposed remaining with her, to go. He did
so. Her only daughter had gone to the coun
try. Her only son was at the University of
Virginia, and that morning, a letter from him
to bis father was received, much of which
was devoted to death and the necessity of
preparation for it. A few minutes before her
decease, she was walking in her garden, then
returned to her room, sat down, calhd for a
Isiwl of water and for camphor, and asked a
servant girl to fan her. Her head suddenly
fell back, and the girl ran tor help. Friend's
came iu immediately, but only to see her
breathe her last. Her needle-work was on
one side of her, her Bible on the other. We
unite with numerous friends in warmest svm-
hpathy for her bereaved family. Uunttville

A very large audience listened with marked
interest to the able Address of this gentleman
on Monday night. Mr. McEweti had already
earned a high reputation for ability and scho
lastic attainments; but high as it was, it was
greatly enhanced on that occasion. The sub
ject, matter of his address, and the splendid
style of its composition, entitle it to a high
place w ith the best literature of the day. Its
noble sentiments and sound and practical
philosophy need only to Is? lMipularized to
exert the happiest influence upon society; and
it will readily award to him the honor of hav
ing done much toward the elevation nnd
refinement of all classes of society. Benevo
lence and charity aud progressive intellectual
development and their relations to every de
partim nt of human iife, were topics thai lent
a varied interest to the address; und iu the
discussion of them be developed and success
fully exhibited the true harmony of all classes.
The style of its composition are chaste and
elegant, and sustained throughout, which im
parted to it a peculiar charm. The young
gentlemen for whose benefit it was delivered
will find iu it a model of genuine good Eng
lish, while every scholar will le gratified to
see in it the characteristics of the b st classic
literature. We are glad to learn that it will
lie published, aud hope, from its great excel
lence, that it may be widely circulated. Jb

The Washington correspondent of the
"The speech on Tuesday, in relation to the
late Democratic Convention in Illinois, is
taken as another step, on his part, back
toward the Democratic fold. The Kansas
embroglio having been settled by a -Bill upon
which loth the Leeompton and Anti-L'coiup-tou
Democrats united, it' was reasonably ex
pected that, if Mr. Douglas really was honest
in his purjMises, he would henceforth let "by
gones," lie bygones and instead of continuing
to oppose the Democratic Administration,
use. his best influence towards healing the
asccrhitics his late action produo'd.
"If Senator Douglas w ill but carry out his
views iu bis contemplated canvass ot Illinois,
I have no doubt alt the disaffecliou now ex
isting amoug the Democracy of that State
may be healed, and a handsome triumph ac
complished next fall.''
This is in a very different style from the
six mouths assaults upon Senator Douglas.
A Splendid Weapon.
Several months ago, as our readers will re
collect, we noticed an application made by
Mr. A. Le Mat, of this citv, for a patent for
an improved revolver of his invention. He
has secured his patent, and yesterday showed
us one of them. It is beyond all comparison
the finest weapon we ever saw. It is a re
volver of nine chambers, charged with coni
cal expanding Italls, which are fir. d in the
same manner as the balls of the Colt's Army
Revolver. But in addition to these there is a
large center barrel, the charge of which con
sists of fifteen or twentv buckshot. This bur-
l is independent of all the others, and is dis
charge bv means of a sliding hammer
attached to the regular Colt's uammer. The
iljustment for the discharge of the central or
grape shot l can lie effected by a single
motion, in two seconds. In weight thisweapou
is altout equal to the regular Army revolver,
b it In efficiency it for surpasses it. Air Or
IV hat It ta doing for the Mck.
