Our Memphis contemporaries, in their controversy
on this subject, liave labored under the belief that
Ci)L Staxtox's majority is but two votes. This is a
mistake, as they have since learned The'"ofliciar
vote obtained from the office of-the Secretary of
State, and which wo published several days ago,
gives CoL Staxtox a majority of six. This definite
ly settles the practical question in the matter, and
leaves our Memphis-friend to settle the legal ques

' LETTER FROJI COL. S. C. PAVATT.
C.u dex, August 18, 1S53.
Gextlhmex: It is due to the party friends who
I have served diligently to the extent of every
dollar I could spare from 1S35 np to the 4th of this
hist, at which time I was defeated for' Congress by
these party friends, that I-shpuld give to the public
; .through your paper, (if you will publish it, for I
"injure yon that it is the last favor I will-ever-ask
f'3" or :m ungrateful party,) something of its
liistbrv. The action of the Baltimore Convention
I will iass over now without going into particulars,
for the reason that it does not legitimately come
within the scope of this letter; yet it is a known,
fact to the Tennessee delegation that several mem
bers of that convention from Tennessee changed
position after arriving at. Washington. I stood firm
and voted for Gen. Cass every ballot, easting me -electoral
vote for him until the last one, when Gen.
Pierce was nominated.
'siylll one day be worth enquiry, who of the
delegation heii'tatel to cast their votes for Gen.
Pierce, and I do not wish it forgotten by those who
were there, that I threatened to make this thhg-J
known In Tennessee if on the last ballot wo-did not
unite. It wa3 too plain that the influence of Young
; America had""plpughci our lieifer." The State
.Convention over these party friends put me upou the
.Eiectaral ticket last fall, and I canvassed one of the
' worst districts in the State. The result of the elec-4
tion was gratifying to the democracy for the rea
son Uiat it appeared to heal all dissensions and pro-
' duce harmony. To no one was it more acceptable
.. than myself. I hope it will prove a blessing to the
In Ma3 last, when the convention met in this
district to nominate a candidate for Congress all

liOwjithe democracy knew that I was one of the
oldest democrats in the -State; that I took ground
upon the stump for the Expunging Resolutions in
.the election of 1835; no. men did so but Col. Jo. C.
Guild and myself and a few others. I voted
against Judge "White's nomination for the Presi
dency inj the; Legislature of that year. In 1839, at
the request of Judge Win. Fitzgerald, James R.
McMeans,, JofmIoKernan, lion. Wm. R. Harris,
and a score of old line democrats, I run for Coit

he had been elected in 1837 by a majority cfjvc

ber the contest of 1S39; it was the most animated
State election we ever had James K. Polk against
Newton Cannon. We all recollect Hie dis'parage-
v,Jiiont attempted to bo thrown oiv Col. Polk, result
ing from his difficulty with Mr. U.Tyc and the same
odium was cast against- Hon. C. Johnson, a leader of
the party, in. consequence of Bailey Peyton's attack
on Uhubefbrc Uic Najhvillc Inn." I was present
snd saw Uiataffiur. I that single olitical con
lestI spent more Uian one thousand dollars. I
paid one hundred dollars for a single barbacue for
ColPolk's benefit, and up to 1S4A Is wus actively
engaged in every political stttiggle.- A'r ttte XTuv

a Son of Temperance. On my arrival in Giles
county, I found Uiat, with an opponent, it would
endanger my success. On a consultation with Alaj.
Biiford, on Uie 9Ui of June, he told me that lie had
confered with Esq. Bugg, who was then spoken of
-as an opponent, and he gave it as his opinion ha

and wrote a.drcukir which I sent yoa from Elkton,
though I, never saw it noticed by you afterwards,
-for vhat psason-r do not know. There he took-tlie
ridiculous ground as a candidate for Congress that
he was opposed to the.'Maine liquor Law; Uiat if
its friend? persisted in its passage, the principles .
tliat lav,' inculcates would in the end deprivo us. of
every tiling but the light of the son and moon. As
ridiculous as his position was on tlrat subject; he
went further and denounced every' Minister af tlie
Gospel as prowling wolves in, priestly garments, Wlw
made temperaileo- speeches. He avowed lid. would
or could dtp under Uie Maine Liquor. Law,bnt would
not live under it. He read from Uie praeeedjngs of
Uie Temperance Convention of Uie 22d of Febru
ary, and charged that the members of that conven
tion were my friends and brothers; he charged the
clergy with an attempt to connect Church and
State, and that they were attempting to set up a
morality higher Uian Uie Bible. In. vain I stowed
tliat Uiis temperaneotrcformation ivas advocated by
srood men. not bad ones. . I' cited Uie names of
Messrs. McFerrin, Henkle, Xapsley, Pitts, and a
host Of olhers, and .maintained Uiat such nien did
not want to do evil I ofteostated I was proud of
such men and I could not and would not condemn
them for all the seats in Congress.
This isometliing of tlie history of the canvass,
and the manner of man that thousands of demo
crats supported against me. . I will state oixe oUier
fact, and close this .letter.- On my second visit to
Giles county, on the 4th of July, I found great ex
citement between Maj. Biiford- and Mr. Osborne.
I' became alarmed upon this whisk' question. I
went lo the house of -Maj. TJuford and told, him he
knew all, abont this matter; and Uiat I wanted liim
to tell me frankly whether I was to" be sustained
by the democrats or not, for if I was not (and he
kuewhqw the facts were) that-1 would go to Pu
laski and decline. I told him that I would not en
danger my party for one mou'ient, ne dissuaded
me-from it. I am sorry now that I. did not know
what was going on, for if I liad I would baveboeh
saved this disgrace and mortification. Thorcsult of
the whole is, that u'o man need raise liis head, that
li:ts ever belonged to Uie temperance "reformation;
each democrat is to. be prescribed, it is immaterial
wliatis the debt of gratitude to him. It is"one-.of
the moderajmprovemcnts, and their improved econ
omy is, when obligations become burthensome, wiUi
one ungrateful act they jcancel all obligations, and
each one makes a little. This is intended as a les
son iir modern Unicg, I will not repeat Cardinal
Woolscy's speech, for it has b jcomoquitc common,
but a slubTxini reality btaresr mo in Uie lace. . I have
to sell the lat vestago of properly I have in the -
world to pay the money I liave spent for a wliisky

Important from Yexezdela. The Earthquake at
Cumana Awful Destruction of Life and Property.
This' calamity, so terrific at all times in Southern
countries, has proved far more disastrous in the
present instance Uian the reports gave reason to
suppose. Private letters to July 22, from Puerto
Cabello, .received by the last convej-ance, give us
unwelcome particulars, as they prove that the
earthquake of the 15th or July at Cumana was one
of Uie most disastrous that ever occurred in South
America. The present unhappy state, of civil war
in Yenezula is the cause of delays hi communica
tions, as the province of Cumana is the only one
now holding but against the government, the re
billion having been elsewhere suppressed. The
news was brought to Puerto Cabelio by the crew
of a national vessel, the Bolivar, who had. deserted
and joined the rebels.
Tlie first shock of the earthquake" was so violent,
Uiat, although it conUnued its vibrations only two
minutes, it destroyed, in that short space -of time,
every house but one in that principal part of the ci
tv.called Puente Arriba. Many of the inhabitants
of the portion which contained the dwellings of the
more opulent were buried in the rums. There can
tnj no doubt that some of the succeeding details are
liable to be quesUoned on account of the-channel by
which the news was brought to Puerto Cabelio;
but they generally received credit among respecta
ble men at that place, from several of whom the
story has been received here.
This shocking catastrophe seems to have put a
sudden and complete end to the wait for COO sol
diers in the barracks were anions the victims, to
gether with almost all of the officers of the revolu
tion. The utmost consternation naturally prevailed
among the survivors, and it was said thai a respec
table ecclesiastic was sent to General J. F. Mona
giis, who was preparing his troops to march against
Uumaua, ottering to submit and asumg assistance
for Uie sufferers. It is added that these' requests
were assented to, and that he immediately sent
o.nc.of his brothers with a supply of provisions and
men. The earthquake was felt in Barcelona, and
destroyed three large buildings, including the bar
racks, just after-700 soldiers had left them. All
along the coast of Venezuela, shocks were felt, but
no mischief was known.
It is said that the superstitions of the people led
many of them to look upon the earthquake as an
evidence of the Divine disapprobation of the revo
lution. Cumana is a city of almost 8,000 inhabitants, ly
ing on the gulf of Cariaco, at the mouth of the
Maranares. It is the oldest European city on the
American continent, having been founded ill 1523.

Tlie precise position of the affair at JFjis moment
is believed to be that all the leadingEnropcan pow

certain conditions, which havebecu'put into the

whom the '"good offices" of that power had been

liave joined any alliance to dictate such as would
On the other hand, all the movements of the
Russian troops in the Danubian provinces are 6f Uie
most ponderous character, as well as in daring vio
lation of every principle of international lawj and
the alarmists set these before the public .as .more
than enough to counteract all the favorable impres-
Lsions which the Czar may cause to bo .created jh
other quarters. The latter, according to their
vieWs, are merely so many tricks to gain time; and
they contend that everyUiing he has done shows
an amount of deliberate preparation that renders
the idea of his marching back without having ac
complished anything, altogether improbable. They
admit tliat the course tii'us anticipated from him
would pat him out of the pale even of the ordinary .
morality of his brother monarchs on Uie continent,
but at the same time maintain that this considera
tion is likely to have little weightsince whatever
raa'y now be his measures, the falsehood already
shown and the designs which have been unmasked
have utterly -destroyed all the absurd prestige that
had gathered around his name, during .the past 'four
years, a3 Uie champion of order.
J)ut supposing all reasonable weight to be attach
ed to these arguments, they are, nevertheless, in
.the lniud of those who look for a pacific termina
tion, rendered utterly nugatory by the actual. posi
tion'of Russia. whose gigantic proportions arc mere
ly terrible on maps, and whose real weakness, it is
believed, would be discovered within a week from
the day in whiph she ventured on an aggressive
contest with any other first-rato power. To sup
pose, therefore, Uiat sho will, when It comes to Uie
last, throw down a challenge to combined Europe,
is regarded by some persons as oue of the most pre?
posterotis conceptions that could be cntertaineX
Still there can be no doubt that there might bo
great delay in withdrawing, and no'pne would ex
pect her to adopt that course until it became the
final alternative between peace or immediate war.
This alternative, however, is considered to be in
volved in the ultimatum now forwarded to her, and
thcrelore cvasiou must now prove useless. Indeed
it is the confident-belief that the terms submittted
by the fourpowers are.couched in this catagorieal
form that creates much of the new uneasiness- that
prevails for the moment in the money market. Ev
ery otic approves of what has been done, and it is
also the common, iraprersion that it will lead to- an
immediate aud satislaetory termination of the diffi
culties, but there is just thep'ossibilily of disappoint
ment, and hence the answer now -waited for is' one
of Uie most momentous ever anticipated. Even al
though the probabilities may be as a hundred to
one that it will be for peace, the bare contingency
that an announcement of war may suddenly appea'r
in the daily papers to-morrow week, causes a de
gree of anxiety which dispirits all men of business,
and preventsthe slightest manisfestations of specu
Nevertheless the regular course of trade increases
in activity every da-, and Uie demand for labor of
all kinds is. excessive, i lie work nouses, as far 'as
able-bodied persons are concerned, are empty
throughout Uie kingdom, and at the same time all
the resources of machinery are being taxed to their
utmost. In both cases, however, the supply is in
adequate to the general requirements, and the woik
ing classes conscious of their prosperity continue to
demand increased wages. In many places tins de
mand has been wisely met, but in others it has
! been resisted sometimes wisely and sometimes in
discreetly. Strikes consequently are increasing in
frequency; and more will take place unless the
question is well managed. The laborers at the Lon
don docks abandoned work yesterday morning,
without notice, and are still holding out. The me
tropolitan police are among those who are request
ing an increase of pay, and, as noUiing is more con
tagious than such a movement, a wide augmenta
tion in the ordinary scale of remuneration for labor
must evidently hcncefortll.be conceded.

There ha3 been no decisive action between-the

on the water side. The chiefs and followers pro

stroy all ulols and temples. Their chief mover calls
himself the ."younger brother of Jesus Christ," and

IJis Excellency, Sir George Boiihanyrcturned to
the colony from Shanghai on the 2GtlmIt, in her
Majesty's steamer Hermes. His Excellency dis
patched the Hermes again for Shanghia on the 30th

war there, the French steamer and American
squadron being on the eve of departing.
With' reference to tlie rebellion, we liave little to
add to our .report of the 24th ul.t Naukin remained
hi possession of the rebels, and no movement of im
portance had taken place between' them and thelm-.
perial troops; the hitter were still in force around the

some of "our opponents we conchrde that tlicy see
already the Constitution of the United States torn
into tatje.rs, and the white basis mashed into a poul

fice of Governor. 'We assure our friends their fears
are unnecessary. The constitution is in no more
danger now" than it was on Uie 2nd day of February
1S42, 'when Mr. Johnson offered in Congress his
proposed' amendments. "With regard to the "white
basis," which appears forgive the mot alarm, we
suppose there will be nothing more said about it for
the next eight yeai-s, unless you begin it again your
selves, and in that event saying will be all, for
nothing can be done before that time The cause
of your heedless fear is only a'creation of .Mr. Hen

of Mr. Groom,, in this count-, about ten miles
distant from Paulding, on the Enterprise road, was
blown to lragments by an explosion or gnnpowder,
and Mr. Groom, the only occupant, was projected
through the roof, and fell some distance from the
scene of the disaster. He is horribly and probably
fatally burned. Mr. Groom is air unmarried man.
and the proprietor of some negroes, one of which is
Uie suspected author of the fiendish deed. The ex
plosion occurred by a keg of powder belonging to
Mr. Groom, being placed under the'house (luring
his absence in the day, and which was fired during
the night One of Mr. Groom's neg'foes was very
averse to removing from Mobile, and begged to go
back, which was refused. He then threatened to
leave, to prevent which, his master deprived him of
his crutch, he being lame. This exasperated rliene-.

terrible vengeance. The negroe has been arrested
and is now confined in the Paulding jail. Paulding
