Tennessee and Alabama Railroad. We
' liare received the sixth annual Report ot tbe
President and Directors of this Road. The
running distance on the road for the Ja?tyear
has been 28.4-10 miles, and the total earnings
amount to $55,098 99, and the expenses $23,
083 73 leaving $32,015 26, as the profits.
The Company have been engaged in extend
ing the road, and have expended $222,309 28,
la . the" work of construction, towards Mount
. Pleasant, which when completed, will can y
the road 57 miles from this city. Tbe En
gineer reports thai the road will probably le
cpeued fdr balnea, to Duck River in Decem
ber next; to Colombia in March 1859; and
to Moont Pli-aoant In June 1859. The Super
intendent nays he Is "permitted to repeat the
gratifying fact that no train Itas ever been off Vie
track tince Oct road was put in operation, a period
of more than Utrte years, and that no passenger or
train hand has ever been injured." We doubt
whether there is another road in the Union
that can make so favorable a statement. The
road is a most excellent one, but much of its
success in this reppect is due to the extraor
dinary care, attention and laithtulness of the
conductor, Mr. D. W. C. Rowland.
The President 6tates : 4-The action of the
rWiimnv'' fin obtaining an amendment of
their charter by the last Legislature) "termi
nates their Railroad at Mt. Pleasant, instead
of the Alabama or Mississippi line, as author
ized originally by the charter and by subse
quent amendments, thus reducing iU length
from 145 miles, had it been run to tbe Missis
sippi line, to 57 J miles." This, we are bound
to consider, a great error in the true policy
of the Company. We took occasion to com
ment upon this subject several months ago;
and we were then assured, by a large stock
holder and then and now a Director, that it
was not the design to stop the road perma
nently at Mt. Pleasant, but to carry it foward
to the Mississippi line, as originally projected.
This however was a mistake, and tbe road
will be stopped at Mt. Pleasant. This cut off
Nashville as an important poitit in the great
thoroughfare of travel between tbe North and
South. We thought and still think that this
this road should be a connecting link between
the Louisville and Nashville, and the New
Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Roads.
Such a union would make the shortest and
hence the quickest and cheapest route between
New Orleans and Cincinnati and best for all
three of the roads. The failure will c r
taiuly operate greatly to the detriment to
Nashville, and we believe it would be to the
interest of tbe business men of this city as
well as the capitalists, to take immediate steps
towards tbe formation of a new Company,
' for the purpose of carrying out the original
design of connecting New Orleans and Cin
cinnati directly by a railroad traversing the
richest part of the Mississippi valley the

Affray Uetween an Editor aud fllank
An affray occurred at the Gayoso House
about three o'clock yesterday afternoou le
tween L. D. Stickiney, Esq., editor of the
Eagle and Enquirer, and Joseph Lenow, Esq.,
the newly elected President of the Memphis
branch of the Rank of Tennessee. A cane
was used by Mr. Lenow, while Mr. Stickney
had recourse to the weapons which nature
gave him. Fortunately neither party was
seriously injured. The cause of the attack
was tbe following paragraph, which ajs
peared in the Eagle and Eiquirer of Tuesday
"At a late meeting of the Roard of Mayor
and Aldermen it was stated that Jo-epli
Lenow. while acting as Secretary and Trea
surer of the Memphis and Little Rock Rail
road Company, pasted tbe leaves of the Com
pany's cash book together, thus hilling his
official transactions from scrutiny, lie has
since been elected President of the Memphis
branch of the Rank of Tennessee. We recom
mend the Captain to Cave Johnson Xo paste
vp the short comings of his suspended iustitu
tion." During the afternoon Mr. Lenow was ar
raigned before the Recorder anil fined $10 for
assault upon Mr. Stickney, and $10 for carry
ing concealed weapons.
In reply to the above extract from the
Eagle and Enquiter, which gave rise to the col
lision between Messrs. Stickney and Lenow,
the Directors of the Memphis and Little Rock
Railroad Company make the following ex
culpatory statement :

At an informal meeting of the visitors at
Lookont Mountain, in the State of Tennessee,
assembled from various States in the Union,
held on the 19th of Ane.ut, 1858, it was de
termined to celebrate, in a suitable manner,
the laying of the Atlantic Telegraph Cable,
by addresses from distinguished guests, and
by the erection of a magnificent bonfire on
tbe extreme point of Lookout mountatn
overlooking the city of .Chattanooga, and the

Col. Lemoyne, chairman of committee on Re
solutions, submitted the following:
Whereas , The great problem biis l-en solv
ed tbe great experiment successfully pre
formed of connecting Great Britain and
America by a chain of communication, un
derlying, in safety tbe waves of tbe stormy
Atlantic; through which the tamed lightning,
enlisted in the benign service of science, com
merce, diplomacy, and social and domestic
life, may pass with the speed of thought and
the precision of written language:
1. Therefore Resolved, That we hail the suc
cessful laying of the Atlantic Cable with
proud satisfaction, and a heart-felt dePght;
and fully contribute our share of the admira
tion due to energy, science and skill of the
two great nations which have accomplished
this sublime undertaking.
2. Resolved, That iu our opinion this achiev
ement, as it is the most signal of modern
times, and perhaps of all past time, in bring
ing the two continents into distant contact,
inaugurated a new era in the relations of all
civelized countries with each other, and is
calculated to exert a leneficial effect njxm
the future fortunes of the human race. We
therefore respond cordially to the Prayer of
our President, in his reply to her Majesty
Queen Victoria, that it may prove to be "a
lKMid of perpetual peace and friendship be
tween the kindred nations, and an instrument
designed by Divine Providence to diffuse re
ligion, civilization, liberty and law through
out tbe world."
3. Resolved, That we concur in the sugges

4. Resolved, That ve feel a national pride
in the success of this great enterprise, b--cause
we Is lieve that it was projected by
American Mechanical skill.
- 5. Reovel, That while we consider the
Ocean Telegraph to le the crowning develt p

two great natiorm.we do not forget the honors
due to the American Philosopher who first
snatched the lightning from tbe heavens, nor
those due to his illustrious successor who har

Tbe rj -ctioti of tbe English Compromise
Bill by tbo people of Kansas, his obviously
placed the bogus national iXmocrrcy in a fad
andjK'ipUxing predicament. Rut they sr . just
where we would have them be they are in
a fix. and no mi.-take. If the Democracy
ret use udmission to Kansas under her new
constitution, on account of not having a
population of U3.0!)0, their party in all the
Northern States will le shattered into a thou
sand fragments. This we consider inevita
ble. On the other hand, if the Democracy
violate the terms and conditions of the boast
ted English bill, and actually admit Kansas
with a population of only thirty, or forty, or
fifty thousand, the party in all the Southern
States will be knocked iuto a cocked hat.
This we think inevitable, also for it is not
to tie crediti-d tbut tbe people of the South
will submit quietly t so gross and outrage
ous a swindle. It is altogether incredible
that Southern Democrat would assent to the
slm nu ful and ignominious surrender of the
only eousidrraiion contained in the English bill,
that is worth a sliver to ths South, and in
duced them to ucquiosve in its passage.
Repeul that provision of the English bill,
which prohibit Ue; admission ot Kan
until site has a population of 93.000, aud the
whol South will rise up, almost as one man
that Is, the Democratic South to pull
down 'be AduiinUlraliou under whose aus
pices the foul work was consummated. Es
pecially will there be a mighty roar of iu
digatiou from the Gulf States such an oue
a will shake the Democratic organization at
the South t-i ita very fouud.it ons.VVea!rvdy,
all through the South, observe nunicruu aud
unmistakable indication of what will be the
coupeqiutice, uhiu the happening of tbe
event alluded to. The AU'uiiiiatration and
the Democracy will go douu together, Uiev
iUbly. .Some of our Democratic contemporaries,
herealiouU, already clearly ptrcfive what
would follow ki abandonment of the Condi
tions of the English bill, in regard to the ad
mission, of Kansas. Hence, the .SumA .sVir
iMimvral zealously urge iu party to -platit"'

Our contemporary U right. Uulee the Dem

Tlie Philosophy of Pala.,,.. ,.-,
SirTlumphrey Davy, when a boy, with the
defianTronstancy of youth which had as yet
suffered nothing, held tbe opinion that pain
was no evil. He was refuted by a crab which
bit bis toe while bathing, and made him roar
loud enough to be heard a mile off. If he had
maintained, instead, that pain was a good,
bis doctrine would have been unimpeachable.
Unless the whole constitution of the world
were altered, our existence depends on our
scnsioility to suffering. An anecdote, re
lated by Dr. Carpenter in his ''Principles of
Human Physiology," from the journal of a
naturalist, shows the fatal effects of a tem
porary suspension of this law of our nature :
A drover went to sleep on a winter's eve
ning npon the platform of a lime-kiln, with
one leg resting upon the stones which had
teen piled up to burn through tbe night.
That which was gentle warmth when he lay
down became a consuming fire before he rose
up. His foot was burned off above the ankle,
and when roused in the morning by tbe man
who superintended the lime-kiln, he put his
stump, unconscious of his misfortune, to the
ground, the extremity crumbled into frag
ments. Whether he had been lulled into tor
por by the carbonic acid driven off from the
limestone, or whatever else may have been the
cause of his insensibility, he f. It no pain, and
through his very exemption from this lot of
humanity, expired in a fortnight afterwards
in linstol Hospital.
Without the warning voice of pain, life
would be a series of similar disasters. The
crab, to the lasting detriment of chemistry,
might have eaten off Sir Humphrey's foot
while ho was swimming, without his enter
taining the slightest suspicion of the ravages
which were going on. Had he survived the
injuries from the crab, he would yet have
been cut off ia the morning of his famous
career, if, when experimenting upon the
gases, tbe terrible oppression at his chest
had not warned him to cease inhaling the
carburated hydrogen, nor, after a long strug
gle lor lite, would he Lave recovered to say
to his alarmed assistant, "I do not think I
Without physical pain, infancy would lie
manned, or perish before experience could
inform it of its dangers. Lord Kaims advised
parents to cut the fingers of their children
I'cunningly" with a knife, that the little
innocents might associate suffering with the
glittering blade before they could do them
selves a worse injury; but if no smert ac
companied the wound, they would cut up
their own fingers with the same glee that
bey cut a. stick, and burn them in a candle
with the same delight that they burn a piece
of paper in the fire.
Without pain we could not proportion our
actions to the strength of our frame, or our
exert ions to its power of endurance.
In the impetuousity of youth we should
strike blows that would crnsh our hands, aud
break our arms; we should take leaps that
would dislocate our limljs; aud, uo longer
taught by fatigue that the muscles needed
repose, we suould continue our sport and our
walking tours till we had worn out the living
tissue with the game unconsciousness that we
now wear out our coats and our shoes. The
very nutriment, which is the support of life,
would frequently prove our death. Mirabeau
said of a man who was as idle as he was
corpulent, that his only use was to show how
far the skin would stretch without bursting.
Without pain this limit would ts; constantly
exceeded, and epicures, experiencing no
uneasy sensations, would continue their
festivities until they met with the fate of the
fro? in the fable, winch was ambitious of
emulatiug the size of the ox.
Sir Charles Bell mentions the rasp of a pa
tient who bad lost tbe sense of heat in bis
right hand, aud who, unconscious that the
cover of a pan which had fallen into the fire
was burning hot, took it out and delils-rately
returned it to its proper place, to tbe destruc
tion of the skin of the palm and fingers. This,
of itself, would be an accident of incessant
occurrence if the monitor were wanting, which
makes us drop such materials more hasty
thau we pick them up. Pain is the grand
preserver of existence, the sleepless sentinel
that watches over our safety, and makes us
both start away from the injury that is
present and guard against it carefully in the
time to come. London Quarterly Review.
The Doon of the Heart.
Every person's feelings have a front door
and a side door by which they may be enter
ed. The front door is on the street. Some
keep it always open; some keep it latched,
some locked, some bolted, with a chain that
will let you peep in; and some nail it up. m
that nothing can pass its threshold. This
front door leads iuto a passage which opens
an ante-room, and this into the interior apart
ments. The side door opens at once into the
There is always at least one key to this side
door. This is curried for years hidden in a
mother's bosom. Fathers, brothers, sisters
and friends, often, but by no means univer
sally, have duplicates of it. The wedding
ring conveys a right to one; alas! if none is
given with it.
It nature or accident has put one of these
keys into the bands of a person who has tbe
torturing instinct. I can only solemnly pro
nounce the words that Justice titters over its
doomed victim: "Lord have mercy on your
soul!"' You will probably go mad within a
reasonable tune, or it you are a man, run off
and die with your bead on a curbstone in
Melbourne or Sau Francisco; or if you are a
woman, quarrel aud break your heart, or turn
into a pale, jointed petrifaction that moves
about as if it were alive or play some real
life tragedy or other.
Be- very careful to whom you trust one of
these keys to the side door. The fact of pos
sessing oue renders even those who are dear
to you very terrible at times. You can keep
the world out from your front door, or receive
visitors only when yon are ready for them;
but those of your own flesh and blood, or
Certain grades of intimncy,can come in at the
side door if they will, at any hour and in any
mood. Some of them have a scale of your
whole nervous system, aud can play at the
gamut of your sensibilities in semitones
touching the naked nerve pulps as a pianist
p: likes tlie keys of his instrument. I am sat
isfied that there are as great masters of this
nerve playing as Vieuxtemps or Tbalberg in
their line of p-rtormance.
Married life is the school In which the most
accomplished artistes in this department are
found. A delicate woman is the best instru
ment, she has such a magniliccnt compass of
sensibilities! From the decD inward moan
which follows pressure on the great nerves
of right to the sharp cry as the tilameuts of
taste arc struck with a crashing sweep, in a
range which uo other instrument possesses.
A few exercises daily oil it at home fit a man
wonderfully for his habitual labors, and re
fresh him immensely as he returns from them'.
No stranger can get a great many notes of
torture out of a human soul; it tnkes one that
known it well parent, child, brother, sister,
Inmate. Be very careful to ahum you give a
side door key; too many have them already.

How to Teach the Alphabet.
At a recent school meeting in Boston Pro
fessor Eukilsox (not Raihi Waijkj Arava)
has something to say of that which he had
seen of teachings in Europe during his
tie spoke or what he Faw in Dresden. He
spoke of teaching the alphalet of its usually
being regarded as a drudgery, which he
called a sad mistake. He cited an example
of forty boys, seven years old, coming to
learn meir aipuaoei. it was taught bv a man
competent for a College President. He com
menced by drawing a fish on the blackboard,
and inquiring of the lsvs. '-What is tLat?''
One answer was "A fish;" another, '-It is the
picture of a fish;" and another. "It is the
drawing of a fish. 7 "Right," said the teacher
to the last. They were then required to
make a nice sentence alout the fish. This
being done, he then placed before them the
letters that make the word. They were then re
quired to put the letters together so as to
spell the word. This was done: also the
making of the letters on their slates, forming
tne wont, they wens next required to draw
the picture of the fish. This was the method
of teaching the alphabet, by no norioe, but
by a most learned German scholar. This
method of thoroughness was everywhere
practiced in teaching a little at a time, and
constant repetition. "The effect of this
method," said he, "was surprising." How
uulike is this method to that pursued in our
primary schools. The teachers use no books
iu teaching. Consequently their minds were
w holly on the matter of teaching watching
the effect of their teaching upon the children.
When their interest tired, their attention was
directed to a new subject, aud thus the hap
piest results are produced.
"Whitk Folks Gktti.vo Sassy. A few
days ago. while Conductor Woodall's train
was stopping at Xeuia. three "cullard gem
men" got aboard, aud attempted to enter the
ladies' car. The conductor Btopjx-d them,
and told them that if they wished passage
ibey must go further forwanl. Rather than
do this, they stepped off. The conductor
spoke to the brakeman. a stout Goliah sort of
a fellow, who never objects to a muss, and
told him to see that tbe trio of colored tren-
tility did not enter the ladies' car liefore or
after starting. The brakeman eyed the trio,
who evidently intended to ride in that car
and no other. They did not like the looks of
the sentinel however, and after growling
awntie. one oi tuem sairt:
"Come on, gents; let's go take dat for'iird
car. White folks gittin so sasm. now-a-days, dat
gemmen nave no respect suncn an.
They took the forward car, much to the
regret ot the brakeman, whose hutre fists iust
then began to itch for a few fancy strokes.
