- Tidaal persecuted with more litterne8 and
vehemence, than that exhibited by the frbarn
democratic prew of Tennessee and elsewhere
towards Hon. John Bell. From a war of po
litical opinions, it haa descended into a sys
tem of vindictive attacks upon his character
and motives as a statesman and a sterling patriot-
lie is assailed with almost every epi
thet calculated to render him odious in the
public estimation, and to deprive him of ev
ery vestige of popular confidence. Efforts
are also openly made to alienate his par
ty friends and to prodnce a spirit of ani
mosity and strife between him and those of
his party who differed with him as to the good
policy and expediency of allowing Kansas to
enter the Union as a State, with the Lecomp
ton constitution. We feel assured that the
public intelligence wTll never permit vituper
ation to sway the popular judgment, when
th time arrives to uass uoon the career of
' Mr. Bell as a comprehensive statesman and
a, true national patriot. However few or
many may be the political friends of John
Bell who thought the shortest way of getting
rid of the slavery question was to admit Kan
sas at once with her Lecompton constitution.
there are none of them, we beiieve, who dis
trust his Integrity of purpose or purity of pa-
t riotism for the different view be took of that
question. And we are greatly mistaken, if any
of them will suffer themselves to be placed in
a hostile attitude towards him by these in

A Gold and Silver Currency.
Several days ago, we okeel the Union and
American the following questions :
1. Is it in furor of recbartering the Union
and Planters' Banks!
2. U it in favor of placing the Bank in
liquidation at the earliest moment that that
t-tep can le taken?
3. Is it in favor of restricting the payment
of State and county taxes in Fpccie-, or any
other mode of at once ba.iiii-.uiDg paper money
from the State!
Our cont. iniHrary thinks it hardly respect
ful f. r us, who ought to know what h'm views
are upon these subjects, to put such questions,
but obligingly waives all exceptions, and an
swers. It is quite true, oiiMdering the ex
traordinary amount of time and talent our
n vghbor haa expended in the diacushion of
Hanks and Banking," we ought to have
known precisely how he stood on these ques
tions; but we really feared that between our
dullness and the equivocal character of many
of his oracles, we might possibly mi.-interpret
him. It was therefore, and with a very sin
cere desire to lie, as well an appear, respect
. ful, that we Hiked for an "explicit" definition
' of our neighbor's views in relation to the cur
rency policy he desired to see pursued in
Tennessee. Our neighbor thinks that we pro
fessed to have been wearied with the frequency
or his articles on this very subject during the
last session of the Legislature. That is pro-
bablv true but our weariness was not in
duced, simply, by the length and frequency
of the articles, however fatiguing they might
be, as they came but once a day; but our im
pression then was that the time was more
peculiarly suited to action. We could very
w.-ll afford the labor of reading our neigh-
b TB llirnbratione, fur we think. w ho-, m
r ght to boast of our powers of endurance,
when we affirm that we read them all even
when they were but differeut forms of ex
pression, for the same idea, and threatened to
be interminable. The time was most oppor
tune for the democratic party to engraft its
currency policy on the State, and we repeat
edly urged it upon them. The party had an
overwhelming majority the bauks had sus
pended specie payments it was asserted that
in so doing, they had forfeited their charters,
and we implored the party to show its faith
by its works. Our neighbor was exceedingly
busy with "words, woreLj, words;" but not a
. step was taken in that "slow and gradual
process," which was to bring about that happy
era of a gold and silver currency, so much
' desired by our neighbor. At the termination
' of the session, we found that neither the
; frequency of our neighbor's articles nor our
' own exhortations had' been of any practical
benefit. The recommendations of Governor
Johnson to two successive Legislatures, and
Gov. Harris, and the belief of "every gentle
man who bad been President of this institu
tion, (the State Bank) from Mr. Nichol
down," was disregarded, and instead of plac
. ing the State Bank in liquidation, it was
favored, and if anything, put on a surer foot
. Ing than ever. We were "wearied" with the
' bitter and unrelenting warfare upon Banks
and especially the State Back, when a bill of
'a half a dozen sections or less, iu the hands of
a Legislature largely democratic iu both
K branches, could have put out its life, and all
the questions growing out of it, to rest for
ever. . But to the Union and American's answers.
The answer to the first question is an un
equivocal negative. Our contemporary is
opposed, under any circumstances, to rechar
teriag the Union and Planters' Bauks, and of
.chartering any new one. The charters of
'both these banks expire ou the first day of
- The answer to our sccoud laterrogatory is
far lea explicit. The I and American
concurs with Gov. Johnson -that the best in
terests of the citato required that the Bank
-of Tennessee should be put in liquidation,
and its concerns closed at a? early a period
as the convenience of the citizens will allow."
But, "as to the particular time at which thU
institution should cease to exist, or the par
ticular mode by which its affair should be
gradually liquidated whether it should con
template the length of time granted by its
charter, cr a shorter period for its fiial ex
tinction, are natters comparatively Imma
terial." The Union and. American is certainly
unfortunat j. It says that the bauk ought to
bu wound up as toon as the convenience of
the people will allow; and then that the
period for its final extinction. Is immaterial.
The period for iu final extinction is the very
essence of tl thing! But who is to be the
jndga of when this can or shall be din t If
successive Legislatures are to postpone the
matter from time to time, how long is it
likely to continue. In our estimation the
convenience of a highly prosperous commer
cial people will always require bank facilities
of some sort When and how and before
whom do you propose to test that question ?
This answer of our neighbor is not explicit,
and therefore not such an one as we desired.
The Union and American further says, "The
most we desire for the present I" that the lan
guage of Col. Johnson in his report to the
last session of the Legislature, shall be greed
upon as the general sentiment and 'settled
policy of the people, 'that the true Interest
of the State hereafter will be best promote d
by a dissolution of all connection with Banks
t. as early period as the finances of the
S ute will admit It.' . If it is then thought
Wet, as ft means of extreme prudence, to cou-
template the final close of the State Bank
only .with the expiration of. its charter,- the
friends of reform will be satisfied; contenting
themselves. with such, legislation, as will, dur
ing the residue of its charter, make its notes
at all times convertible into specie, and look
ing to a reliance on an exclusive fpeeie cur
rency at the termination of its charter." This
is quite as indefinite as the previous part or
the answer. If the State Bank U really the
monster it is represented, it would peem that
"the finances of the State" would not only
"admit'' but demand its immediate liquida
tion.' But if they do not admit of it now,
when are they likely , to! When does the
charter 'expire? From a hasty examination
of the charter, we can find no limitation to
it, in which, if we are correct, the Union and
Americitis answer amounts to just nothing at
all. Will our neighbor give us a categorical
answer to our second question ! ,'
The answer to the third interrogatory has
reference to the second, and is affirmative,
when all the banks are wound up, and the
golden sun of ppecie shall look down in full
meridiau upon us. Our "inference" now is
that the Union and American is in favor of a
good sound currency, which is gold and silver
alone; but will feel satisfied if it cau be at
tained at the expiration of the State Bank
charter, that is to say, at some indefinite
period ranging from ten to fifty years hence.

or the finances of the State will admit 1 1

SrVbilea large poruon of the South-
ern sham democracy affect to look upon the
breaking up of the black republican party ,
and the formation of a national organization
in opposition to the democracy, as supremely
ridiculous, Mr. Boyce, of South Curolina.
seems to think that such a' state of affair
would follow, what is claimed as a settlement
of the Kansas question, according to the laws
of parties. That gentleman made a speech
at Yorkville, sometime since, aud in the
course of his speculations on the condition
and prospects of parties, uttered the follow
ing: "The three great occasions, as already in
dicated, on which the North and South camt
near a collision, were in regard to Missouri,
California aud Kansas. After the two first
were di;-posed of, the antagonism tietween the
two sections was for a while much mitigated.
Political parlies were immediately formed ou
a National basis. It would seem, therefore,
accordingly to the laws of parties, the same
result should follow now, and the Black Re
publican party, as a distinct political organ
ization, should die out; aud instead of one
general party extending over both sections,
and one sectional party limited to only oue
section, there should be two general parties.
If this dors not take place, if the effort to
form a National sectional party is continued,
it will indicate a more direct and embittered
state of the put, lie mind North," than has
hitherto been imagined. It would seem that
thi North, having gained Kansas, should be
satisfied. If not. and the Black Republican
organization is continued, then we must un
derstand that a large portion of the Northern
people, are determined to wage a perpetual
war against us." fc
Mr. Boyce, who is a South Caroliua dem
ocrat of the Calhoun school, cau see nothing
so monstrous in the disruption of the black
republicans, and their union with the Ameri
cans north and south, on a comprehensive
national basis, iu opposition to the democracy.
On the contrary he would regard it aa but
the natural law of parties, consequent upon
what the democracy claims to be a settlement
of the Kansas question; and if it does not
lake place, "it will indicate a more direct
and embitterred state of the public mind
North, thnn has hitherto been imagiued." To
those of our democratic friends who are so
ready to denounce every effort of their south
ern opponents to bring back the republicans
from their wild crusade, as a bargain and sale
to abolitionism, we commend these sugges
tions of Mr. Boyce. If their fears are real,
it may alleviate them, and if they are pre
tended it ought to silence them.
From the CharlrMon Cnurier.
The Itevlval or the Slave Trade.
We have hitherto foreborne to incumber
our columns, editorially, with elaborate dis
cussions on this question, because we have
never regarded it as having attained sufficient
magnitude or dignity to warrant such a
course. This opinion is still unchanged, and
we mean not to depart from our course farther
than te make the position of the Courier fully
understood, especially as, in deference to the
freedom of discussion, we have admitted sev
eral articles on the subject, iu conflict with
our own views. The course of one of our
associates iu the legislature ami otherwise, iu
opposition to the revival of the slave traffic,
has been sufficiently marked aud decideel to
place his position iu the premises beyond all
question, and his position is that of the pro
prietors of the Courier.
In order to leave uo further room for dis
satisfaction or doubt, (some indications of
which have reached us,) as to our course or
views, we propose now to put on record the
grounds of our uncompromising opposition
to the revival of a trafllc, which the undivided
sentiment of the civilized world, (our own
country, and especially the bouthein section
taking the lead,) has long since stamped and
stigmatized with utter reprobation aud ab
Were the revival of the slave trade practic
able, (which we hold it not to be under our
existing Constitution and legislation, and
in the present state of public sentiment
throughout the Union, and esjiecially at the
North, likily to be perpetual,) we set our
faces against it for the following reasons :
1. 1 be slave trade is inhuman and brutaliz
ing, and we would not stain our national flag,
r our Southe-ru escutcheon by re-opening iu
llie recent arrival of a captured slaver in our
port is full of evidence and speaks volumes to
tnis point. Cupidity ana avarice stow away
and pack their human victims, by hundreds,
rpoon fashwn, in a single vessel, without le
gard to decency, morality, cleanliness, health
or lift, aud numbers, in the iuiUnt of uteucu
and tilth, frequently, il not necessarily, perish
from disease. The poor Africans are not as
well care-el for as are dogs, Lorses or other
brute freight; acertuiu per centageof mortal
ity among them u counted ou as matter of
mercantile calculation; aud, in case of storm,
or danger of shipwreck, or shortness of pro
visions or water, luev are mercilessly thrown
overUmrd, and with h-ss scruple than mile
geods and chattels woulel, iu like case, be
committed to the deep. It is vain to say that
were the traffic licensed and re-gulateeU theso
et its and utiouities would cease to character
ize it; they arc it.heient in its Very nature,
and, for priof of this melancholy und revolt
ing truth, we cite the historical and conclu-
uve tact that all "the horrors of the middle
passage" occurred, in the-ir worst form, when
the slave trade uus licensed by every civiliz
ed tutiem. The re-cut disclosures of op
pressions and atrecitie"s, practised iu tmigraut
ships, illustrate the subject; and we have late
ly published the tcstimouy of Gen. Gads
den that he hits beeuau eye-wituerssof fcein a,
on board of tne Mississippi slavers, in the
couduct of the inUr-Siate slave trad, (Con
gressional lutcrtercDce with which, however
objectionable the practice, iu tuauy of iu
feulure-s. should lie the kue-ll of the Union.)
scarcely iufe-rior to the horrors of the middle
passage. We have accidentally met with an
ill iimtive passage, on the sm ject, in the an
nual message of Gov. David R. Wtlliaius, to
the Legislature of this Stale, in Noveiuter,
lei 6, nich may be appropriately cited here :
"It is nut possible that your. delibera,tieos
on tnt.se subjects can be concluded before
that n-monM.let aud merciless trafhc, a hich
brings among ua slave eif all detcriptious
from other hiatea, aud which U a rprocu to
our morals aud an outrage to our fet l.ngs,
shall pre-s ou you for com-ction. It U time
the course of ce-Bf U-sm cupidity, alike re-gard-le-as
of couutry and consequence, should le
arresUnl; hi;h time that our streets and high
ways ohould be freed from the ciowds of suf
fering vicUuia, that are constantly dragged
tnrough them to minister to iusaliaCle avarice.
The lights of humanity a wise policy
th prayers of the just, all rcquirs that the
dellgtillul aveicutieMi of doiueiic life should
ue no lougrr deiilrd by the presence of con
victs and malefactor."
The fact Is that the slave traffic, la in Itself,
brutalizlug and debasing. As a general rule,
the master and crew of a slaver, aa U shown
by those now iu our port, are nt to become
CUV-lbroal or pirate. m have DO t'ckly
sensibilities on the subject of slavery. We
hold slavery, as an exlstinr infthutiou In our
Und.to be defensille,econouiically ntoially and

Qiristiancounirv to le infinitely better than
that in his native land; but still we say. God
forbid "that the slave trade should ever again
le prosecuted under the flag of the Union or
the flag of the South. ' y
2. The revival of the slave trade would
deteriorate, barbarize and heathenize, or
supersede, our now civilized and Chrlstain
slaves, by an unceasing and ever increasing
infusion of native Africans, and introduce
the insurrectionary clement among our now
orderly and contented lave domestics' and
3. The revival of the slave trade, would
brutalize ourselves. Were it cheaper to import
than to cure or rear slaves, instead of mul
tiplying and replenishing the earth, as our
happy slaves now do, they would be annually
decimated, as they were formerly in Jamaica
and Brazil and still are in Cuba, and the
places of the dead supplied by new importa
tions of the raw material, and Uncle Toms and
Legrees would be no longer fabulous person
ages in the South. For proof of this, see
the obsolete colonial legislation against
cruelty to slaves, too revolting and disgus
ting to bespecically mentioned.yet unrepealed
on our statute book. As a corollary, too,
would cease the patriachal character of the
slave institution, compensated for its admitted
evils, by the wide-spread relation of humane
and attached masters and subordinate and
4. The revival of the slave trade would
speedily abolitionize the border Southern
Stat- s, by rendering slaves of no value, and
the institutions an iucubusamong them.
5. The revival of the slave trade would
ruinously impair the value of slaves, and
....,, of ,hort stijmie cotUm
in the Atlantic Cotton States, and build up
at their expense the prosperity of the South-
western States. The new and fertile lands of
Ulat regioIlt caltivat(ld bv imported AtricaniI,
bought for a song, would render short cotton
so cheap as to be of impossible production on
the Atlantic border.
6. The revival of the slave trade would fill
Northern pockets at the expense of Southern
interests. Let the slave trade be re-opened,
nd Northern cupidity and Northern capital
would at once seize on it forNortbern en
richment, and certainly not forSouthern good
New York and Boston, in spite of Northern
fanaticism and hypocritical freesoilism, are
the great centres, from whence now issue
covertly flotillas of slavers, in defiance of
the laws of the Union and the cruisers of
England and France; and, were the trade
legalized, fleets of the like character would
openly blacken the ocean.
7. The very agitation of the question is
calculated to distinct and divide the South,
the harmony and unity of which is especially
I ne-cessary in thr se disjointed and diste-mpered
tunes, when a large portion of the Northern
people, faithless alike to the couutry, the
Constitution and their oatlis, are waging
internecine war against the rights, interests
and domestic peace of the conservative and the
Constitution-loving South. Its tendency, too,
is to alienate friends and strangthen enemies,
and to precipitate the downfall of the
Republic, em the perpetuation of whieh, in
its whole constitutional integrity, rest ut once
our own happiness, greatness und glory, aud
the hopes ot our race.

"Itebellioii of the Iteapers."
The foivigu advices published a few days
ago briefly mentioned that se-rious riots have
ocenred in Kilkenny against the agricultural
machines, and that the military had to b
called out before peace could be restored.
ThetmcMfe is ilescribed by a local paper as a
"re-bell ion 'f the reapers." ceunposed of
agricultural labeirers of the district, aided by a
contingent of Connaughtmcut aud large
bodies of peasantry from Tippcrary and the
King's and Queen's counties, who, it app -ur.
had entered into au organized combination
for the destructiem of reaping machines and
the prevention of the practice of mowing corn
with the scythe. The Kilkenny Journal ceni
tains the subjoined condensed report of the
We regret to announce that the peace of
the city has not only been seriously endanger
ed for some days past.but that nets of violence
have been perpetrated iu several parts of the
county, by a large boely of laborers from this
aud the surrounding counties, who have leen
thrown out of employment by the introduc
tion of machinery for agricultural purposes.
On last Sunday upwards ot 4,000 persons
assembled in our srteets, most of them armeel
with reaping-hooks, yelling in a most fright
ful manner, to the great dismay of s
citizens, who were hourly expecting nothing
less man the sack of the city.
Fortunately ,the rioters were allowed to have
their own way as long as there was no overt
act of violence in the streets, and we think
the mayor and the authorities acted -with
great prudence on the occasion, as a single
arrest might havele-d to most lamentable con
sequences. The mob, we believe, consisted
principally of disbandeel millitia meu from
Tippe-rary, Qum-n's county, and Kiug's coun
ty, with an auxiliary force front this neighbor
hood, and it would seem as if there was a
certain amount of preconcert and organiza
tion in the movement. On Sunday the city
may he said to have been absolutely in their
possession, but no violence took place beyond
the shouting and yelling we have already
mentioned. Ou Monday morning at day
break, the streets rang with the rioters, who
held a sort of council of war, in which it was
decidd that all the machinery in the couuty
should be forthwith destroyed, as the only
chance of cmpleiymeut lor the labort-r.
After parading the streets for some time,
they proceeded at six o'clex-k to Oldtown.
about two miles from the city, to the residence
of a farmer named Walsh, and commenced
breaking his reaping machine, which they
soon smashod into fragments. Walsh offered
no resistance, as he considered it useless, but
locked on quietly, and the mob proceeded on
their work of de'struction without offering
iiiin any personal violence.
At 9 o'clock they reacheel Pigeon Turk
(near Datiesfort.) the residence of Mr. How
son, a Scotchman, and prepared to attack his
machine also. Mr. Howson and his family,
ou the other band, prepared to defend it; but
at the very outset his gun was knoe-keel out
of his hand by a blow of a large stone w ith
which he was struck on the arm. One of his
sons seizeel the gun and ran off with it. but
while in the act of doing so he was closely
pursued, when he turned rouud and find, but
without efleet, upon his pursuers. He wus
instantly seized and the gun taken from him
and broken; but he so fl'e re-el no pe rsonal vio
lence at the bunds of the rio'ers. We re'gret
to say that his father was not so fortunate,
for, while striving to de-fcnel the machine, he
wus knocked down aud received several in
juries in the head und jaw. but though severe
ly hurt we aie happy to say his life h uot in
danger. While Mr. Ilowson was lying on
the ground, his daughter, with the courage of
a heroine, seize-d a pitchfork and held it atove
him, threatening instant death to whomsoever
Ehould touch a hair of his head; but she also,
alter some vain resistance, was speedily dis
armed, add re-ce-ived some slight injuries iu
The machiue was then broken to pieces,
and, more disgraceful still, Mr. How sou's gold
watch was carried off by the rioters. The
work of destruction was not pretcee-de-d with
further on that d.ty; and though several ru
mors were utioat inthe city yesterday as to the
oilier interned attacks on liiavLiiiery, nothing
occurred to justify those rumors.
Ye-sterday morning the crowds again as
semhle-d in the streets, and paraded up ami
ilown in thousands, as on the previous day,
cheering aud shouting and yelling, till about
nine o'clock, when th.t city a-sutued its usual
orderly appearunce. Nono of the rioters bave
been apprehended, or even identified, and the
wuly sups that have been taken to prevent
the recurrence of these lawh-ss proceedings is

WeatJier, Health, Ac.
Wo am having tin: most remarkable ppe-ll
of weather, just uow, that has ever been ex
perienced in this latitude, iu the mouth ef Au
gust. After tin unprecedented long term of
intense heat, with the thermometer ranging
generally at ninety degrees, we hud a very
Midden change ou Friday night lat. Alxmt
5 o'clock we were visited by a very nev re
thunder storm, high winds, ami considerable
ruin. The mercury commenced falling rap
idly, anel from a steady range ef 9!) deg., it
yctitirday morning dropped to 68 deg., a"d
remained at that point during the gr"at.r
portiou ef the d.iy. Notwithstanding th
suelden and severe change, the health of the
city continue'8 good. There are fewer cas. a
of disease, of any description, than usual at
this season of the year, and not a solitary
case of yellow fever has been even reported,
since last Thursday!
The Sjxtou's report for the past week
shows three interments, one only of yellow
fever, anel that the only case originating here,
that has terminated fatally. There have now
leen three deaths from yellow fever during
the season. One at the Marine Hospital,
landed (sick from a New Orleans boat; one
at the City Hospital, just from that city, and
who sickened the day after his arrival, and
ihe tlilra case was that of Mr. Jno. H. Walker,
ot B. J." Butler efc Co.'s Wharf-boat. We
donbt it any city on the continent can show
a cleaner bill of health, and yet, upon so
flimsy a pretext, our town has been de-serted.
is now avoided by strangers, and business of
every kind brought to a stand still.
If there be any germ of fever in our midst,
il will be developed iu the next sixty hour.

Catliolie-inm Opposed to the Ired
The following is the language of Prof. O.
A. Brouson, oue of the ablest expounders of
Catholicism in the United States. It is taken
from an article in Bronson's Review coude mu
ing the Dred Scott decision: .'
'We regret, that in giving the opinion of
ttie Cenirt, the learned J uclge . 1 aney elid not
recollect what he ia taught by his religion,
namely, the unity of the race, that all men
by the natnral law are equal, that ne-groes
are men: and therefore as to their rights must
be regarded as standing on the same footing
wun wuite men, where there is no positive or
municipal law that degrades them." In his
last (July) number, it is also said: "The re
viewer did not complain of the Chief Justice
that he did not follow the Council of Tr-nt
aguinrt the Constitution, but that he did rt
re-member, in interpreting the language, er
more properly the silence of the Contititutii:.i
touching negro citizenship, what his relig:ii
teaches him, and what as a Catholic he fc !J
and must hold, namely, that negroes ore r.- a,
and that all men are t-eiual Itefore th..- laws of
nature; and therefore as men, negroes and
whites stand on the same fooling .f e quality.
The l.'gal presumption, then, must 1-? in favov
of negro citizenship. If negroes are nie.i.
nnei aw men are equal as men. then tree
groes and whites are equal u citizt r s.
the contrary is expressly ordaiueei l,v th
