NEW ARRANGEMENT.
"We to-day issue the "Nashville Union and Amer
can" in a consolidated form and on an enlarged
sheet This arrangement has been made for the
purpose of presenting to the democracy of the State
'but one central organ, as well as with the view- of
furnishing the business community generally with
an advertising medium unequalled in the South
west, and which will justify them in advertising
largely and paying fair prices. In this latter view,
we think the union will .meet with the warmest ap
proval'of the advertising friends of both papers. It
will give to them the benefit of a circulation em
bracing till classes of the community, both in tho
city aad State, and will cause their capital so invest
ed to yield doubla the profit it has hitherto yielded.
It is not necessary, however, that we should dwell
upon this feature in the new arrangement. Every
business man will be able to judge correctly of its
advantages.
In this new arrangement, the editors of the new
paper will be Messrs. Marling and Eastman. The
"business department of the office will receive "the
united services of Messrs. Tobbett and Chukch. It is
hoped and believed that this arrangement will prove
satisfactory to theriends of both papers. It affords
...superior advantages for furnishing the public with a
good newspaper, and the democracy of the State
with a vigilant organ. To combine these two ob
jects is the chief object of the union. The style of
the new firm will be Jotix L. Marling Co., Edi
tors and Proprietors.
REMOVAL.
The consolidation of the Union and American.
and the great increase of press work consequent
thereon, make it necessary that we should employ
steam for the purpose of running our large power '
presses. In a short time, therefore, we expect to
have in operation an engine, when the columns of
our paper can be kept open until a late hour for all
news matters. This addiUoST to our office materi
al, renders it necessary that the building at present
occupied by the American office should be selected
for the publication of the new paper. This build-
ing affords facilities for the employment of steam
jwhich" the Union building i3 deficient in. Our
friends will, therefore, in a short time, find the
"Xashville Union and 'American" office on Deader
ick street. For the present, all business with the
old firm of Church fc Marling, will be transacted
at the counting room of the Union, where. business
with the new firm can also be transacted.
TO ADVERTISERS IN THE AMERICA".
The change in the columns of the American to
adapt them to the more sightly columns of the Un
ion compels us to reset all its advertisements.
This is a labor which it will require two or three
days to complete. Within that time we shall have
all our advertisements brought forward in this pa
per. Our advertising customers will please re
ceive this exp'mation. They will be greatly ben
efitted by the union of th" papers, and will no
doubt be willing to givi' r a few days time to per
fect our arrangements.
A GREETING.
The union of the two democratic papers in Nash
ville introduces a former editor again to the readers
of the Union, in whose company he passed through
the stormy political period from early in 1847 to
the summer of 1850. After a separation of near-
5iJthreyeani,-he-i-enabledagainto associate..
with them, and to enjoy all tnosc pleasant feelings
incident to a meeting between old friends after a
Jong Bounce. He trusts that, whatever lapt; r.f
ability he may have shown during his former con
nexion with the Union, he yet exhibited a hearty
zeal for the success of the democratic caubc, which
may render his return to its columns as one of its
editors not unwelcome to its old subscribers.
It is believed that the Union and American,
both in its editorial and financial departments, is
so organized as to secure efficiency in its advocacy
of the Democratic cause and success in its busi
ness affairs. The publishers are determined to
fend out a democratic neicspuper of which the par
ty may bo proud. And they confidently rely upon
receiving that degree of support which they are
determined to deserve.
12CCELLE.NTI
From an explanatory article in the Banner, we
ascertain that that paper does not find fault with
Gen. Pierce for appointing frce-soilers, but with
its for not assailing such appointments ! Now we
regard this as ingenious excellently so worthy
the distinguished tactician of the Banner. Sure
ly, if he finds us in the position he imagines, he
should compassionate us. Does the Republic tell
truly the history of that epoch in Taylor's admin
istration when an editor was wanted to defend
the bringinginto power of'that class of politicians
knmcn as free-soilers?'" And, if the Republic does
tell the truth, does the veteran editor of the Ban
ner expect to como home here to Tennessee and
summarily put us to the work of undoing all his
brilliant labors! Docs he ask us to aasail in one
what he defended in another! To be sure he docs!
But is the request a modest one! Hadn't he better
blaze awny a few weeks on the free-soilers him
self long enough to induce people to believe
him in earnest before he dictates a course for us!
We very respectfully bring the matter to his con
sideration. FIFTH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
Chap.lis Rcabv, Esq., has been nominated by
the whigs of the 5th Congressional district as their
candidate for Congress.
OiT" In no way do the whigs more clearly show
that they regard the Henrymandcr of this State
indefensible than when they attempt to off-set it
by a reference to the manner in which Virginia
has been districted. They denounce the act of
the Virginia Legislature as unjust and wicked,
and yet excuse their own act by a reference to it.
Now, two wrongs don't make one right. If both
are iniquitous, both should be condemned. But
Tennessee whiggery led the iray in the path of
iniquity. Virginia may say that she followed the
lead of Tennessee. But Tennessee whiggery
can't excuse itself by pleading the subsequent
course of Virginia. It won't do, gentlemen.
You must hit upon some better excuse than this.
, fgj- II is GuvC Seymour, of Connecticut, and
not New York, who is talked of for tho Russian
mission. This will relieve the fears of our neigh
bors. A lettei from Washington to the Baltimore Sun,
states that GovNTrousdale, of Tennessee, has
been designated for!the Brazilian or Chilian
mission.
COL. JOHNSONLANl) INZSSNAL IiUTiOVEMgSlB.
We have no apprehensions iant Use assaults of
the whig papers upon Col. Joltngwa relative to his
course on internal improvements will do him any
injury with the people of the State. In the le
gislature he occupied almost precisely the same j
ground on tins subject as was occupied by Gar.
Neil S. Jlrown, Gov. Trousdale, and Gov. Camp
bell, "e jt-iif those politicians who are as
scrupulous in -dealingVitli. the people's raoaey as
with their own, who as carefully vpfese a reckless
waste in the one case ns in tho other. There are
few such politicians, it is true; but when the
pcoplo find one, they are not apt to reject him
rtfeecSuse of their rarity? They have more sympa
thy for the public man who watches their treas
ury even too closely, than for Galphins and Gar
diners. That Col. Johnson was opposed to the internal
improvement scheme of. 1835-6, may bo true.
Indeed, we hope it is true. That he opposed
what be regarded as wasteful appropriations from
-ihe treasury, is also, we nope and believe, true.
But he has favored such improvements as he be
lieved "judicious," and has contributed largely
from his private means for their aid. No vote of
his in the Legislature can be found which is not
sustained by the votes of men as high in the con
fidence of the whig party as Gov. N. S. Brown and
Gov. Campbell. And it must be regarded a's hypo
critical for papers which approved the course of
those whig leaders to object to the same course
in Col. Johnson.
Wc care very little about this assault. We be
lieve the sympathies and judgment of the people
are with Col. Johnson on this subject; and that the
more whig papers prove him opposed to running
the State recklessly in debt, the more they will
endear him to the people. Tho friends and ad
vocates of internal improvements ourselves, as we
have often proved by our course as journalists,
and having, during our connexion with the press,
written quite as much to aid a well-organized sys
tem as any of our eotemporaries.we are ready to
defend the general course of Col. Johnson on the
subject as having been dictated by a wise foresight
and a prudent economy.
THE KNOXVILLE DISTRICT.
Horace Mavnard, Esq., has been nominated by
the whigs of the Ktioxville .district fur Congress.
Mr. Mavnard was UieAvhig elector in the late can
vass. The vote in convention stood 30 for Mat
xard, arid 18 for Temple.
Mr. Mavnard is not so popular as some other
prominent whigs in the Knoxville district, and
we think his nomination greatly increases Mr.
CnuRcnwELL's chances of re-election. Mr. C. with
ability and energy unites great personal popularity.
He is a gentleman in crery sense of the word, and
is so prized by his neighbors and friends. Since he
has represented the Knoxville district in Congress,
he ha3 labored with zeal and ability for it3 local in
terests, and his Services in many instances have
been crowned with great success. His constitu
ents owe it to him to increase his majority in this
contest, and thereby greet him, as he deserves to be
greeted, with the approval of "Well done, thou
good and faithful public servant,"
It is rather singular that Mr. Johnson, who is
held up by some of his Democratic brethren as a
friend of internal improvements by the state, never,
during his legislative career, did find an internal
improvement bill that he could support, nor did he
ever introduce a bill to aid any work of internal
improvement. Kiioxville Jiegislcr.
The ignorance of whig editors is about equal to
their recklessness. We do not know whether to
attribute the above misstatements to the first or
last of these qualities, but we do know that they
are gross specimens of one or the other. The Leg
islative journals of 1839 will show that CoL Jons
fc; then favored propositions tr aid in works of in
jnzJ i.'uprovpmes.s. In 1842 he proposed to set
apart 5650,000 for the purpose of internal improve
ments in East Tennessee, a portion ot the State
whern the above paper is printed, and which, more
than any other portion of the State, was in need of
such improvements. He also assisted in the pas
sage of a bill appropriating $100,000 for the same
purpofe. While a member of Congress, Col. Joiik
sox favored prepositions to aid in works of internal
improvements, and in 1S50 introduced a bill setting
apart 3,000,000-acres ofjthe puUC-landsfor.fhe
'Bencfit orthTHolston river and its tributaries, and
of the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad. In
184C, he offered an amendment to the river aud
luiibor bill giving STuO.OOtj to 1:-.essc third
for the improvement of the Cumberland river in
Middle Tennevee, and the balance for the improve
ment of the Tennessee river in West Tennessee.
CoL JonNSox is emphatically, on the same side of
the internal improvement question. He neither
goes with the reckless who would plunge the State
into bankruptcy, nor does he stand with those who
would withhold all aid from works of internal im
provements. He is bold, but not rash liberal, but
not cxtraraant.
DEATH OF J. J. 11. SOUTHALL, ESQ.
We are truly pained to becompelled to announce
this morning the death of J. J. B. Soutiiall, Esq.,
a prominent and highly esteemed citizen of this
county. Mr. Soutiiall has been lingering in the
embraces of disease for along period, during which
time he has travelled much for the beucfit of his
health, but without any improvement. He died on
Sunday, the 15th is3t, at the Red Boiling Sgringa,
in Macon county, about seventy-five miles from
Nashville, where he had been since the 24th of
April.
The Nashville Union says that Mr. Dix has sup
ported the compromise and advocated the fugitive
slave law as constitutional. If the Union does not
make the remark at mere random, without having
the slightest knowledge as to what it is talkingabout,
let it say when and where and how Mr. Dix sup
ported the compromise, and advocated the con
stitutionality of the fugitive slave law. We say
that Mr. Dix never did any such thing that he
has never, so far as the public are informed, said
one word for the compromise or for the fugitive
slave law.
We find the above in the Louisville Journal
The Journal quotes tho New York Democrat, the
compromise organ of the party in that State, to
prove that the Dix wing of the party there is as
much tainted with free-soilism now as ever. Now,
wc shall ourselves quote this samo New York
Democrat, and out of the mouth of the Journals
own witness prove all we have said. Immediately
after Mr. Dix's appointment as Sub-Treasurer of
New York, the Democrat made the following state
ments, in reply the Providence Journal:
"Our whig co temporary is in heathen blindness
in relation to the ground on which Gen. Dix is ap
pointed. He not only accepts the fugitive slave
law, BUT HE HAS PUBLICLY ADVOCATED IT AS A 'r.UB
and necessary cOMrnoMiSE. The political senti
ments of Gen. Dix are heartily with ffte present
platform,an& no doubt is entertained, in any quitter,
of his fidelity to the principles of the administration.
Had there been he wouU neither have cxi ap
pointed by the Prcsideut or confirmed by the Son
ate." We suppose the Democrat will be considered
good authority, as it is published where Mr. Dix
lives and in the midst of his friends.
To hide the treachery of the President to the
South, says the Clarksville Chronick.ns tsnifest
ed in his appointment of secession.si? and f:v
soilers to high positions, we are told.- f,rs;i
borough Telegraph.
The whig papers forget that they charged Gen.
Pierce with free-soilism all last summer. If they
told the truth then, there would be no "treachery
to the South" in the appointment of free-soilers.
But if their charges of free-soilism were untrue,
they will be quite as likely to make false charges
against the men appointed ' to office, as against
the man who makes the appointments..

WmsESDAr, January 13.
Between the hours of li and 12 at night a gen
tleman was sent lor to the house of one Parsous,
officiating parish clerk of St. Sepulchre's, in Cock
lane, near West Smithficld, to be witness of the
noises and other extraordinary circumstances at
tending the supposed presence of a spirit, that for
these two years past has been heard in tho night,
to the great terror of the family. To throw some
light upon this very mysterious affair, we shall be
gin with the narrative of Mr. Brown, of Amen cor
ner, published January 23, the substance of which
is as follows:
That in 1759 one Mr. K. employed an agent to
carry a letter to a young gentlewoman of a reputa
ble family in Norfolk, and to bring her up to Lon
don in a post-chaise it she would be willing to come;
that she did come, but Mr. King beiug at Green
wich, she followed him there directly, and was re
ceived by him, after a journey of 100 miles, per
formed in one day, with much tenderness. Alter
some short stay at Greunwich, where it was thought
necessary that she should make a will in his favor,
she was removed to a lodging near the Mansion
House; from thence to lodgings behind St. Sepul
chre's church, aud lastly, to a house in Bartlet. court,
in the parish of ClerkenwelL Here, in 17G0, she
was taken ill of the small-pox, and on or about the
31st of January, her sister, who lived reputably in
Pall Mall, was first made acquainted with her illness
and place of residence, and being overjoyed to hear
of her, went.immediately to see her, and found her
in a fair way of doing well Next day she sent to
her and received a favorable account other; but on
the moruiug following word was brought that her
sister was dead. She died February 'J, 1700, and
was buried two or three days alter at the church, of
SL John, Clerkenwell, her sister attending the fune
ral, who was surprised at not seeing a plate on the
colfin, and expressed that surprise to Mr. Brown af
ter the funeral was over, lamenting, at the same
time, that she had not been permitted to see her
sister's corpse, the coffin beingscrewed down before
she came. She added that K. had married one of
her sisters aud had ruined the other, who was
buried by the name of , as appears by the
parish register. By the will already mentioned, K.
had availed himselt of her fortune, to the prejudice
of her brother and sisters, who all lived iu perfect
harmony until this unhappy afiiiir happened. Such
is the account given by Mr. Drown, of Amen corner.
A worthy clergyman, however, who attended her
several times, and who administered to her the last
comforts of his function, declares that the small-pox
with which she was seized was of the confluent sort,
and that the gentlemen of the laculty who attended
her had pronounced her irrecoverable some days
before her death.
It is, however, the ghost of this person that Par
sous declares has taken possession of his girl, a child
about 12 years old, who lay with the deceased in
the absence of her supposed husband, when he was
in the country at a wedding about two years ago,
and then it was that the knocking was first heard,
to the great terror of this child; she frequently cry
ing out that she might not be taken away. Soon
after this woman died, whose apparition is now sup
posed to appear to the same child, and in answer
to the question put to her on Tuesday night, What
was the occasion of the first knocking, &&, before
she died? answered, That it was the spirit of her
sister, the tirjt wife of Mr. K., who was husband to
them both.
Having now sufficiently prepared the reader, we
shall proceed in our narrative. The gentleman al
ready aid to have been sent for, attended, and
fouud the child in bed, and the spirit being at baud,
several questions were put to it by the father, which
to avoid repetition, we shall relate hereafter. The
gentleman not caring to pronouuee too hastily upon
what appeared to him extraordinary, got some
friends together, among whom were two or three
clergymau, about twenty other persons and two ne
groes, and sat up another night.
They first thoroughly examined the bed. bed
clothes, and being satisfied that there was no
visible appearance of a deceit, the child, with its sis
ter, was put into bed, which was fouud to shake
extremely by the gentleman who had placed him
self at the foot of it.
( Among others, the following questions were
'asked: Whetherher distdrbanca' was '"occasioned
by any ill treatment from K.? Yes. Whether she
was brougnt to an untimely end by poison? Yes.
In what was the poison administered, beer or purl?
Prl How lonpr before her death? Three hours.
Is the person called Carrots able to give information
about the poison? Yes. Whether she was JL's
wile's sister? Yes. Whether she was married to
K.? No. Whether any other person than K. was
concerned in the poisoning? No. Whether she
could visibly appear to any one? Yes. Whether
she would do so? Yes. Whether she could go out
of that house? Yes. Whether she would tbllow
the child everywhere? Yes. Whether she was
pleased in being asked questions? Yes. Whether
it eased her mind? Yes. Here a mysterious noise,
compared to the fluttering of wings round the room,
was heard.J How long before her death did she
tell Carrots (her servant) that she was poisoned?
One hour. Here Carrots, who was admitted to be
one of the company on Tuesday night, asserted that
the deceased had not told her so, she being at that
time speechless. How long did Carrots live with
her? Three or four days. Carrots attested the
truth of this. Whether if tne accused should be
taken up he would confess? Yes. Whether she
should be atcase in her mind if the man washanged?
Yei. How long it would be before he would be
executed? Three years. How many clergymen
were in tlie room? Three. How many negroes?
Two. Whetlr she could distinguish the person of
aoy one in th room? Ye. Whether the color of
a "cratch litli op by oa 61 the clergy was white,
yellow, blue c black? Answered black. The
watch was in a black shaggrecn case. At what
time she would depart in the morning? At four
o'clock. Accordingly, at this hour the noise re
moved to the Wheatsh'eaf, a public house, at a dis
tance of a few doors, in the bed-chamber of my
landlord and landlady, to the great affright and ter
ror of them both.)
Such is the manner of interrogating the spirit;
the answer is given by knocking or scrathing. An
affirmative is one knock; a negative two. Displeas
ure is expressed by scratching.
As the impostor willpiobably soon be discov
ered, let this short detail suffice to show the tenden
cy of it; the whole of the nonsense would fill a mag
azine. OCT" We learn from the Knoxville Register
that the whig convention which met at Clinton on
the 12th inst. nominated Horace Matxakd, Esq.,
for Congress in the 2d district. So Chcrchwell
will he elected in that district.
ANOTHER RAILROAD DISASTER.
Collision on the Palerson Itailroad Two Men Fa
tally Injured and Several Others Dangerously
Wounded, 6t, d-c
Between eight and nine o'clock, last evening, a
collision took place on the Paterson Railroad, about
n mile from Bargen Hill, between the Paterson em
igrant rain going west, and the Erie express train
coming cast, by which two men were fatally in
jured, and si-veral others wounded.
It appears thai on the Paterson train leaving Jer
sey City, it was some three minutes behind time,
and ihe conductor slopped the train in Bergen Cut,
and remained there a short time, awaiting tiie ap
proach of the Erie train. The conductor then
fnnkiHl at his watch, and remarked that the con
ductor on tho down train had iorleiteu the right of

forward passenger car o;rcained a aumber of

After the collision the conductors rebuked each
other for running out of time, each one claiming
the right to the road. The injured were left on the
road until assistance could be procured to convey
them awav. Some of the passengers uninjured
walked back to Bergen Hill and returned to Jer

opportunity of serving his country that ihe position might
well attract tne mesi amoiuoua.
Becidea the foreign appointments, it is believed the Xew
Mexico questions were also before the cabinet this morning,,
and Governor Meriwether's instructions fully discussed.
There is little doubt but that the United States will insist
upon the boundary as claimed by Gov. Lane, the disappro
val of the government not extending to the merits ot that
question, but limply his interference in it. The initial point
of Mr. Bartlett has few admirei s here. Nearly all the dif
ficulties with the Indians, ac d many of our Indian wars, can
be traced to the conduct or the government agents, who, as
a general rule, "seem to value their places in proportion to
the "sterling" which they have been ablelo pocket The
disclosures which are daily being made of these practices
are trulv deplorable and disgracctul. lr'roin the manner in
which the Indian agents have been appointed the governors
of the territories have had little or no control orer them.
This is to be remedied as for as possible, it being the inten
tion of the government to gire the selection of the agents
to the Governors, and hold the latter to s strict accountabil
ity for their conduct. In this way it is believed a proper
and efficient organization can he brought about, which will
do much towants putting a stop to the extortions and outra
ges the Indians have teen subieeted to, and, as a necessaiy
consequence, create a feeling ot friendship andtiust iu the
gowrjssent, instead of the present gencralfecliug of hostil
ity which prevails with nearly all tiie Indian tribes.
The question of the New X ork assay office is before the
cabinet, and will doubtless receive early attention- A prop
osition has h-;eii suggested to convert the bonded warehouse
building into an assay office ; but, independent of its being
too large for the purpose, it is probable the terms-8f the
lease would interfere with such an arrangement. The prop
osition to use a portion of the Exchange meets with favor.
The determination of the Secretary of the Treasury to
carry out faithfully Ihe sub-Treasury laws creates quite an

WASiiiNOTO.v,May9, 1853. The liufialo Post Office ap
pointment is being re-considered the President refusing,
tor the present, to sign Mr. Dickie's commission. This, if
true, is considered another instance of the President's de

located.

pi?" The following, from the pen ofMiKE Walsh,
is a beautiful and truly classic simile :
"When a man is placed in a false position, the
very traits in his character that would be virtuous
in a true one, are looked upon as faults by those
who attempt to form an estimate of his character
without possessing instruments to take the altitude
of his mind. When the temple of Minerva was
finished, at Athens, two rival sculptors of" that city
were employed to decorate its summit with a statue
of the goddess Each labored in secret, and fol
lowed the conceptions in his own mind, with a
view to the production of a masterpiece of art On
the day that the merits of the statues were to be
decided unon. and tne hour for so doing had arrived,
"a-fevtrof-the-boU" constituted judges gathered in
f . 1 .1 3" t 1 V 1J
iron i, wnue mousanus remaineu ueuina-ivno couiu
see nothing. Those in front passed judgment upon
the productions, like the leaders of our parties, and
the tliousanus, who could see nothing, nurraiiea
the siJoflife, finely sculptured and of the most
excellent workmanship, the features beautifully
chiseled, until life seemed staring from marble.
The other was of collossal size, with huge and ap-
1 1 J ,T-,.--I.t.. . AnAtlnliia iti o rC I
parently unshapen limbs, and features that looked
to tne linineaiate ooserver more iiku unmeaning
proturberances than anything else.
When the judges gave a decision in favor of the !
small, but beautiful statue, it was gradually raised
amid the shouts of the multitude, and became dim
mer and fainter as it receded from their view; and
when it finally reached the pedestal, it resembled
nothing human or divine, but seemed to have dwin
dled to a mere point. The applause gave way to j
murmurs and disapprobation, and it was then low
ered to make room for its rejected rival, which was
very reluctantly hoisted in its stead. A3 it receded
from the earth its deformities lessened, and gave
way to an appearance of symmetry and beauty,
which increased with its distance from the earth;
and when it finally reached the pinnacle, from
which the sculptor, from his knowledge of per
spective and proportion, designed it should be
viewed, tlien it looked as if the Divinity herself, so
beautiful was its aspect, had descended to receive
the homage of her worshippers. So it is with
men. God Almighty moulded the character of
men according to the station which lis intended
they should ultimately fill, and when a man is
placed by circumstances in a position lower than
that in which he was created to move, hi3 virtues
become vices in the eyes of those whose vision is
too short to view him as a whole, and who, there
fore, riject him a3 unfit for elevation."
A QtJASDARr. The Republic has the follow
ing: "Certain gentlemen in office arc suffering well
nigh the torments of the from the flattering
attentions of ladies, sent to them on the one hand
by parties who dread lest they may bo put out, and
on the other by parties who dread that, lest they try
that dodge they will not be put in office. Ladies'
tears arc powerful arguments the world over, the
man incapable of listening to them, to some extent,
being more than an infidel. But when a gentleman
with office in his gift, as I saw one to-day, finds
himself between two most interesting specimens of
the better half of creation, each in tears one be
seeching for the retention of the support of the fam
ily, aud the other pleading in quite as melting a
mood for the appointment of the best Democrat in
the world, also the support of a large, helpless, and
highly interesting family what can he be reason
ably expected to do? Verily, the ass of old, be
tween the two bundles of hay, was in a much more
agreeable quandary than that in which I left this
gentleman, high in office.
A grizzly bear, belonging to Mr. Oakes, of Cov
ington, broke his fastenings Sunday, and got into
the street, causing a terrible consternation among
the citizens. In his flight, the bear got among a
number of children, and terribly lacerated one of
them, iho daughter of Jlr. Saoe, a tobacconist. The
bear wis followed by a number of gentleman, and
finally killed.
