correct, vrefeel that it is but just to exoncraleAlr.

Wo 'venture to express the hope that our friends
in Bradley will never again permit their county to
be represented by a whig, through the contentions
of rival democratic candidates. Where such rival
candidates will not settle tlyir pretensions so ato
fiecure harmony and insure success, the party should
step forward and do it for them. A nomination
should always be inaJe-.nhil tlie nominee be sustained
by die undivided vote of the party. Unless wc pur

ANECDOTE OF HEX. JACKSON".
A correspondent has sent the following anec
dote of Gen. Jackson-. "Wc have never seen it in

"Early in the Creek campaign Gen. Jackson",
with ooly a subordinate to accompany him, had
ridden forward in advance of his army, when he ar
rived at the Tennessee river somewhere about
the Muscle Shoals, perhaps at the identicle spot
where the brave Tnorsw.u: was forced, Lcander
like, to make his passage soon r.fter over which
he was to pass in haste. But finding the ferry
man on the opposite shore, and somewhat tardy in
his movements, his little stock of patience was
quite exhausted before the knight of the paddle
presented himself at his service. The ferryman
was no sooner in speaking distance than tho fiery
young commander was down on him with a show
er of abuse, which was returned in good measure
by die provoking ferryman. Beg3rdless of the pru
dent admonition1 of his subordinate, no sooner had
the boat touched the shore than the General pitch
ed into his wifling antagonist for a regular set to
at muster ground exercise. But, fortunately for
the General, in the very commencement of the ac
tion they were both tumbled into the stream, Irom
which the utmost efforts of the subordinate was re
quired to rvlicy tlirrf. Tired and wet, the ferry
man doggedly look hi? place at the ores, and in
due course of time made the landing. Without a
word or apology given or required, the General
know mounted his horse and slowly went his way,

this way the accompanying officer, who was not
only an intimate friend but relation, ventured to re
mark that the ferryman was pretty tight 'picters.'
tYes said the General, straightening himself up in
i siirrm? to his full height, and his countenance
beaming with animation, 'by the Eternal, if I had a
thousand such m?n I could whip all the it -u in-

The sixth college year of this institution com

cinity of Nashville, in an exceedingly healthy por

Principal, i? a highly intellectual and accomplished
lady, and her assistant in the various departments
are well qualified for the business of teaching. We
know of no institution in the country possessing
superior claim'' upon the attention of parents and
guardians. The system of instruction taught in

REMOVING A KING FROM AYOl'NO LADY'S
Dr. Cack, of Chatleston, gives to the Boston
Medical and Surgical Journal the following account
of the manner in which he extricated a young la
dy's finger from a ring. We have done the same
thing often without half the trouble to which this
divip'e of Esculapius was put:
'An interesting young ladj', about seventeen
years of age, had presented to her a gold ring, which
she forced over the joints of her midddlo finger.
After a few minutes the finger commenced swell
ing, and the ring could not be removed. The fam
ily physician. IJr. , was sent for, but could
d nothing. The family, and Uie young lady espe
cially, were now in the greatest consternation. A
jeweller was sent for. After many futile attempts
to cut the ring widi cutting-nippers, and to saw it
apart with a line saw, and after bruising and lacer
ating the lles.li, warm fomentations and leeches were
applied, but all widiout affording the slightest ben
efit. Dr. requested my presence, with the
compliment that 'perhaps my mechanical ingenuity
might suggest something.' I at once proceeded to
the house of the patient, and found the young lady
in a most deplorable state of mental agony, the doc
tor embarrassed, and the family in a high state of
excitement. 1 procured some prepared chalk, and
applied it between the ridges of swollen flesh, and
all round the finger, and succeeded in drying the
-oozing and abraded flesh: dien with a narrow piece
of solt linen I succeeded in polishing the ring, by
di awing it gentlj' round the ling between the swol
len pans. I then applied quicksilver to the whole
surfiicj of the ring. lu less than three minutes the
ling was broken (by pressing it together) in four
pieces, to the great relief of a'l parties.
In a similar manner (without the chalk) I some
time since extracted a small brass ring from the ear
ofa child, who, child-like, had inserted it into the
cavity of its ear. The operation was more painful
and tedious, but was equally successful.
'The modus operandi. The quicksilver at once
permeates the metals, if clean, (with die exception
of iron, steel, platina. and one or two others.) and
amalgamates with them. It immediately cry.-tali-r.es
and renders the metal as hard and a brittle as
jjla. Hence the eae with which metals amalga

Tdg03 Of one of the most fearful and desperate rjotw
tliat has laid waste and devastated our quiet city in
up wards or a good while! The iWt instigated by
Xl wanl Buntline atthe Astor Place Theatre, New
York, when Macrcady appeared upon die Ameri
can boards a few years ago, wasainflmgauait com-
iiared to this. ,
On SatuiVbrmoniiiigjlt,';jt.va3. announced m
town that the celebrated-Madam. Buqueliannanne,
who for some time past lias delighted tli5 citizens of
the principal cities of die adjoining counties byMier
wondeiful performances on the violin and tit, tight
rope, would give One of her unique exhibitions at
Masonic Hall that evening. AccordinglvfaUhe
appointtHlhour, die crowd-wngregated at the Dall
a ill theperfonnancesconi .uencc.lL Thehonsefrom
gallery to pit was breathless with-intense interest
and a-nticpation. A supcrbnd br. hant prelude
was dashed off by Madame- with charming case
.,',i .mnfihahmcc. The house was in ecstacies at
iih divine enchanting ravishment. Then came
another overwhelming burst of magic melody,"and
"Chicken-foot in the pepper row"
was achieved in a style of transcendent power and
lcautyaltogedier unapproachable,-andthe enraptur
ed audience went into convulsions of delight;
Next followed dieTeipsichorcan performances on
die tight-rope, when the fearful disasters or the eve?
ning commenced. Would tliat we could draw a
veil overtheshuddcringsightand shutout thedread
ful scene forever, but alas, it clings to tho shrinking
"The nympliolcpsy of some fond despair." .
A rope was extended across thestage, at an altitude
of about three feet, and the husband of Madame 13.
was directed to balaucc liimsclf upon it to test its
capabilities of sustaining the dainty tread of the
airy-lightandaecomplished danseuse; thisheaccord
iudy bid; but as the envious fates would have it,
tho experiment was attended with the most disas
trous consequences. It seems diat die gentleman
had "been round" extensively during die day, and
as a natural result, found himself at this interesting
;nii.irr. rvmsldembl v "over die bay.' No sooner
had hp mounted the ropo than die treacherous !
strands gave way beneath him, and die unfortunate
gentleman was "landed iijwn die boards heels up
wards in the vicinity of the foot-lights. This achieve
ment the assemblage thought was rather more dian
the ptogranime called for, and their delight was
changed to exasperation. They tore the drowsy
car of night with groans and hisses, and made a
break for the stage with a yell of fury that would
.have done honor to a baud of Camanches. At the
the same time tlie fascinating violinist and her ill
starred husband, seeing the tumultuous throng ad
"A horrid majesty upon its fierce front,"
made-a clean pull for the street-door, through which
they shot like a brace of bomb-shells from an over
charged mortar. After them thundered the mob,
"And then (here rose as wild a yell,
As ir the iiends from heaven ImU fell
Had rung the banner cry of h I."
The affair began to grow interesting. The lady be
ing robed only in the rigamagees or.t stage costume,
was therefore unincumbered by a retarding super
fluity of calico, and hal her heels been gifted with
the "talaria of Mercury, she could not liave ''put
herself through" with more fantasticcelerity. Away,
away! through the silvery moon-light they sped,
widi the roaring, rantaiikcrous crowd following
swiftly after. Into an open door they dashed, over
barrels, bags mid Iioxes thm'lhe back door they
.Kp,Hl into another establishment, and again reach
ing the street, they made a beautiful fling for the
hotel, where they finally pulled up, considerably
worse scared than hnrt. "Here the pursuers "closed
their fierce career' and made themselycs scarce.
The pursued having resolved "themselves into a com
mittee of two to suggest some pare course or proce
dure, thought fit to advise an immediate stampede.
Thev accordingly transported themselves by a back
wav to a distaulstreet, and having vented upon the
town a few choice curses, "not loud, but deep,"
"Some natural tears they drnpf, lint wip'd lliem soon;
The woild was all before them Where to choose
Their plaeeof re-t,and llebebub their guide."

EnrroR3 orrnn Union & American:
Gents: In a communication from Col. S. C
Tavatt to the Menqfiii Dtibj Express, written on
theOth hist, explanatory or the causes or his de
feat in this Congressional district, he uses the fol
lowing language: "I believe with one or two honor
able exceptions, ever-aspirant for Congress desired
my defeat." In another communication to the
XasJiville Union tb American, from the same gen
tleman, on the same subject, dated Aug. ISth, he
says: "At the May convention last, when I was
nominated for Congress, it is plain the nomination
diil not give satisfaction to the aspirants." In the
last mentioned letter, Col. Pavatt mentions the
names of Gen. Meeks of McNairy, T. M. .Tones and
N.Adams, Esq., id Giles, as gentlemen in whom
he found fast friends. In odier portions of the two
communications, the Col. mainly attributes his de
feat to the issue of the Maine Liquor Law, which
was forced into the canvass by his opponent,
Mr. Bngg. My object in troubling you with this
matter, is not to join issue with Col. Pavatt as to
the cause of his defeat, but to correct an unfounded
impression which appears to have been made upon
the mind of Col. Pavatt, and which, through his
communications, may find its way into the minds
or others. I will, however, be permitted to say,
that so far as the count' of McNairy is concerned,
the Maine Liquor Law was not an issue between
Col. Pavatt and Mr. Pugg. The election here
turned solely on the political sentiments of the two
gentlemen, the Democrats supporting CoL Pavatt,
and the Whigs voting for Mr. Uugg. The vote of
the county will most clearly show that to have been
the case. Mr. Pugg's majority in the county was
only 21 votes, 23 less than the majority of General
Scott over Gen. Pierce, and 11 votes less than the
majority of Maj. Henry over Col. Johnson. It is
plain, then, that the county of McNairy did her duty,
her whole duty, and that the epithet of "ungrateful
whisky-drinking party," cannot be applied to the
Democracy of McNairy. Put, I am digressing
from the correction which I desired to make. Col.
Pavatt partly attributes his defeat to the disaffection
among aspirants for Congress. The gentlemen
who were before the Waynesboro' convention that
nominated Col. Pavatt were, Maj. Polling Gordon
of Hickman, Maj. T. M. Jones of Giles, and myself
Col. Pavatt has himseir said that in Maj. Jones he
found a fast friend. The consequence is, that Maj.
Gordon and myself are the guilty ones. As for
Maj. G., I can only say that soon after the nomina
tion of Col. Pavatt, 1 was informed that Maj. Gor
don expressed himself well-satisfied, and pledged
himself to a warm support of Col. Pavatt.
My political friends here know tliat it was not
through my seeking that my name was placed lie
fer.1 the Waynesboro' convention. I constantly
told my friends that there were other gentlemen in
die district of larger political experience, whose
claims were far superior to mine, and that I did not
desire to go before the convention at alL Thev,
however, did place my name before that body, and
it is well known here, that 1 expressed on all oc
casions, my complete satisfaction with the result of
their deliberations. I not only supported CoL Pa
vatt myself, hut on all suitable occasions I advised
others to do so. His unexpected defeat was to me
a subject of regret. I have always admired him
for his unflinching and unswerving efforts in behair
of democratic principles, and I feel truly mortified
that he has been impressed widi the belief that I
desired his defeat. 1 am not an aspirarit for any
political position; I reluctantly suffered my name .
to be placed before the Waynesboro convention, i
and when its result was known, I labored to sus
tain the nominee. I hope CoL Pavatt will make
the necessary corrections, and thus relieve me from
any unjust imputations which might be cast upon
me b those who may see his letters.
I am truly yours,
Jno. V. Wnicnr.

with which it lias been, conducted, ,and the princi

with all parties, and are hardly, assailed in any
quarter. It is evident that the most strict econo
mVj.consistent with o due regard for the publicjn
terests, will characterize all die expenditures of the
government, and strict accountability will be re
quired from all the subordinate officials of the Ad
rmnistrntinn which will be very likely to prevent
a repetition of the disgraceful frauds and pecuLition3

and of' the distinguished gentlemen who compose .
his Cabinet, arc'or such a character a3 to give eve-
ry assurance that the pledge which was contained
in the former's inaugural address in this particular f
will be faithfully redeemed. The indications are 1
equally marked in reference to its foreign policy,
Which will be bold and vigorous, maintaining Amer

mental influence felt upon the side orfi-eedom, and
strengthening by its moral support those who are
engaged in forwarding that glorious cause in any
part of the globe.
This system of diplomacy, to which the Adrain
istialion will undoubtedly strictly adhere, oommends
itself to every patriotic American, and is so popu
lar with tho masses that its enemies, in a great
measure, have been oblijredto acquiesce in its wis

planting hiraseirfair and square upon the Baltimore

committed to abide by and adhere to those acts
how, although it has been fiercely attacked by a
few violent partisan Whigs who had rather fan
the smouldering embers of sectional and bitter an

liave them fulfill the object for which they were
designed, that of giving peace to both sections of
the country, if any political capital can be made by

If the future of tho Administration continues to ex

have characterized its commencement, we imagine
it will he a somewhat difficult matter for the Whig
oppositiou to make an organization against it that
will be any wise formidable in its nature, for thus
far we have noticed that nearly all its charges and
complaints have had reference to the distribution

is quite too small a matter to make an issue upon

TAX OX RETAIL MERCHANTS.
Xot wishing to meddle with politics, and having
set and scratched our head for hours to think up a
subject, and found none until we picked up tho
''Union and American" and saw a few thoughts in it
in refeience to taxing merchants. Thissubp ctwe
claim as our legitimate propeity tliat we have a
perfect right to use it none will deny. It is a well
known fact to all persons who buy, sell or use goods
that tLo porsoa otlering them for sale is compelled
to lay on a per cent sufficient to cover all expenses,
isow, if the retail merchant, in Teh" defence is com
pelled to put on this per cent., we ask in all candor
who has it to pay? Does not the consumer pay it?
We answer emphatically he does, or else the seller
losses, which in many cases he does. How is this
to be remedied? Let the Legislature pass an act
to exempt goods from a second taxation which have
once been invoiced and the State tax paid by whole
sale jobbers, either in Nashville or any other mar
ket in the State. Such an exemption from a sec
ond taxation would tend to reduce the price or
goods at a retail counter, and can but commend it
seir to every right-thinking mind who has the in
terest or the whole State at heart ir the retail
merchants throughout Tennessee could be idemni
fied against this practice or having to pay a second
tax, they would then have something to act as a
stiinulous to induce them to buy all their goods,
&a, at home, there would be lew if any of small
capital that would spend a month of time and per
haps two jer cent, on nmount of purchase in ex-
iciises of going to the Kast to lay in their suppplics.
ut knowing that the wholesale merchant has to
pay a Slate lax, and therefore is compelled to sell
for a profit sufficient to cover that expense, and
knowing that if they buy the;r goods from him
that they have again to pay the State tax, and that
not upon the original cost, but upon the invoice
cost, many are induced to forego the toils ofa
i trip East to buy, hoping by thia to be able to sell
I goods to their customers at a living price, and make
, something for themselves.
i Let the ensuing Legislature exempt all goods on
! which the Stnte tax has been paid from furthertax
I at ion, and th effect will be to double the amount
, of wholesale trade at home, which will lessen the
price, for all will admit that ten per cent on two
j hundred thousand dollars i better than fifteen per
cenr., on nan mat amount. Jy such aD arrange
ment, say some, the revenue of the State would be
diminished. We think differently; it would rather
be increased; country merchants would at once turn
their attention to a home trade, and all their sup
plies would be bought at the different points where
they are kept on sale, and thus the increase in the
amount sold would very soon reach a sum sufficient
to make up for all deficiency caused by die loss of
THE ELECTION OF SENATOR.
The Legislature of this State which will convene
in Nashville one month hence, will have a delicate
and difficult tak to perform, in tho election of a
Senator, to fill tho vacancy occasioned by the expi
ration of the term of the Hon. Jons Hell.
To say nothing about the constitutional scruples
by which the Governor elect of the State professes ;
to lie controlled, m regard to the old and universal
custom of the State the election of Senators by
joint vote of (he two houses of the Legislature
we see, or think we do. that diflkultip.s of a very
delicate and embarrassing nature are likely to
arise between members of the whig party and their
peculiar friends of (he Legislature.
We set out. with the remark, that during die
pendency of the late election the name of the Hon.
.fonx Pkll was the only one used in connection with
that distinguished position, and that he may, with
out disparagement to others bo said to -be the
oldest, the ablest, one of the best, and certainly the
most distinguished man of the whig party in Ten
nessee; and inferior in talents and just distinction
to no mr.n now living, as a statesman.
While, therefore, we are willing to recognize the
just claims of others, wo think we do but speak the
voice of public opinion throughout die Stute, when
we proclaim our unhesitating preference for that
position to be the Hon. Jons Bkll.
We are aware diat we may be, and are already
met in some respectable quarters, with the claims
of Jhij. Hexp.v. Wc do not wish to combat those
claim?: fiir no man has labored widi more zeal and
fidelity in the whig ranks, than he has; we would
wnnngiy soo tlie gallant anu trnc-liearted "J-agie :
orator" wearing the Senatorial robes. But we do
not at present see how his friends can urge his
claims against (hose of Mr. Bell, without seriously
endangering the permanent prosperity of the whig
party, not only in Tennessee but throughout the
