of our correspondent: .
The Prividant and his administration are assailed
by some who olaim to be more "national" than
others, for having appointed to office jn New York,
barnburners and frec-sollers. Those who thus
charge the .President with a violation of the Balti

and admirers of the Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson, lie
is -their leader, and his opinions are their political
gospel Itmay surprise some of th we gentlemen,
and also those southern politicians ivho have be
lieved tliat Mr. Dickinson was the staunchest sup
porter at the Xorthof the constitutional rights of the
Soiitli; to find that, on March 1st, 1847, in the U.
Status, .Senate, tlie three-million bill bein under
diicusskm, Mr. Dickinson not only claimed for Con
gress tlie power to prohibit shverg in the Territories,
but actually advocated'its exercise, (the Wilmot pro
viso,) as the following extracts from his speech will
t-hqw. Mr. D. says:
"So far as I am advised or believe, the great
masses of the people of the North entertain hut
one opinion on the subject. They
regard the institution (slavery) a a great moral and
political evil, and would that it hail no existence.
' They believe that Conffrets
mny prohibit iti introduction into Utt Territories,
while they remain sucli. And further, that its pro
hibition in the Territories will, by giving them a

a more perfect Union, establish justice, injure do

Times, of Baltimore, are natural tinder the circum
stances: Utail While the people in the East are recov
ering from the excitement of office-seeking, and en
gaging in their ordinary pursuits, and news mon
gers stretch their vision far across the Atlantic,
striving to decipher the future fate of Nations of
the old world, the community of Latter day Saints
about the Great Salt Lake, live on increasing and
prospering by themselves, with their peculiar reli
gious, matrimonial, and civilinstitutions, only caring
to be let alone. Tlie organs or Mormonism" in the
capital of Utah, proclaim that all is well, and tho
toast drinkers promnlge tho sentiments of the com
munity, in favor of the non-intervention of the Fed
eral Government in their affairs.
Governor Brigham Young, tho head of the
Church, is the head of the State, and wields the
military power of the community with vigor an ef
ficienc'. The military organization is kept up, the
troops are upon dniy, and the Indians are held in
check by the forces of the territory, without au
thority or consultation of the officials at Washing
Were these things progressing by the action of
l - n i i- v..
peopie uiiuiiiuenceu oy reugiou3 sentiment, orwere
that religious sentiment at all compatible with the
creeds of the mass of the people of the United
States, the growth and strength of such a commu
dity might be a subject .of congratulation. They
would in time, and that too before long, cultivate
and civilize a region, which would be tho stopping
place for travel and transport across the continent.
The country would be the reliance, and furnish the
resources for all military operations against the In
dian tribes of the West, and with proper manage
ment tlie effect might be, in some degree, beneficial
to the Indians themselves.
Butfor the first time since the United States
wure independent, we have in this territory of Utah
a, union of Church and State, tacitly acknowledged
too, by the Federal Government. Brigham Young
and his establishment male and female rule by the
pousent and appointment of the President of the
United States, and thenumbersand strength of the
population are on the increase. JIow long would
the quasi obedience to Federal authority continue,
provided interest or fancy, tipon the part of the
spiritual leaders advise them to throw it off? From
the experience of the communities, near which the
Monnoii3 have been located, previous to their last
swarming to Utah, we doubt whether had they the
strength, they would continue it now, and we think
it highly probable, tliat an attempt upon Uie part of
the President to displace Governor Young would
be met by positive and armed oppositipn. If such
mi event should take place, the Federal authority
would be mocked and disregarded in the heart of
territory, peculiarly its own and from tho distance
of the route, the nature of the country and the char
acter of the people with whom the forces ot the
United States would have to contend, it would bo
exceedingly difficult and expensive to sustain that
authority by military power.
In the meanwhile all Christian emigration over
the plains iiasses L tali, and is spread over Califor
nia and Oretron. The true believers star nml ivnrl-
with all tlie ardor of religious fanaticism for the
community, and we believe that without tho adop
tion of some action, the Mormon State will he ex
ceedingly troublesome and annovimr before tha
space of ten years.
Fortunately the action wliich will afford the
strongest and best safeguard against anything of the
kind, is now under completion and discussion, and
tliat too, with a fair chance of adoption. Religious
communities banked up in the hot bed of their nar
row prejudices, especially when they are based up
on such monstrous creeds as that of Mormonism,
grow and enlarge both in physical strength and
moral superstition; a free and "unrestrained inter
course with the world carries off a portion of their
iiimenai, anu opens me eyes oi many or the delu
ded, and finally, if the last and worst expedient of
ujci.-iuii; luuirgruwui is resoneu to, places them
within the reach of the arm of power.
The Pacific Bailroad if once built would break tho
isolation of Utah, give tho chance of completely
severing the present union of church and govern
ment, and place the community under the eye of
the people of the more thickly settled States, both
Any attempt to break from the Union, or to get
up a religious crusade for the propagation of the
faith of Mormon, would be promptly met, and prop

In the neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina,
(says tlie Charleston Standard,) there lived, until
within tlie last two years, an age J lady, whoso many
recollections of early life were very interesting.
One, we remember, afforded us great amuse
ment. Gates had been defeated; the shatter
ed fragments of his army had been swept like the
debris of a tempest past her secluded home: her
father and brothers were all out undersome partisan

attract tho attention of her relatives, and seeing a
young man riding from that direction, she was told
by her'mother to learn the, news from him.
Sho was a buxom lass of sixteen summers, edu
cated in the freedom of the country, and being
tolerably assured of her ability to cope with any
body, was nothing loath to go, and gave us the fol
lowing story of the meeting: The lad seemed an
honest, well-meaning body, but not much in the
way of looks. He was thin and awkward and bil
ious, and rode a grass-fed colt, that reeled about so
I wondered how in the world it earned him. "Hero
do you do, sir" says I. "How do you do, mam,"
says be, bays I, '-Which way did you comefrom?"
"I come from the Washes." "Did you see orhcrr
anything of our people down there?" "No" savs he
but there are some torus about there, and wo pops
them down sometimes." Think, I, y0 boklikea
funny fellow to pop any body down, but I did not
say so; I just asked turn, "Where are vou goin"?"
"I am going to Uncle McDowalls. I v. ft? i f,'
The old ladv had to the day of her death, tlm m.
pcaranee of this young man so indelibly impressed
upon her mind that she could never realize his im
portance, and It always struck her as excessively
whimsical and ridiculous that such a looking cus
tomer could ever become President of these United
She had the same difficulty with respect to Mr.
Polk. She liad known him when a child: ho irnnJii
stay for montlis at her house and go to school with
her children, and was so easily outdone and so put
upon by other boys of Ms age, that she could never
form a high opinion of his abiIitics;sliealways,from
tho force of habit, called him little Jemmy, and we
think never mentioned him in connection with the
Presidency without feelings of irrepressible amuse
ment. Poor old lady! she stood for eighteen years alone
in the world, her children and grand children all
were dead, and'none could hear her indulging in
reminiscences of her early life without a senso of
3iow great a blessing it was to liave so rich a store
of early memories.
BEXTO.VS KEJIIXISCENCE3-GE.Y. JACKSON.
A considerable portion otfCokBEXTox's Reminis
cences is devoted to Gen. JaclcsdnSand it is, to us,
the most interesting portion of'thebook we have
seen. From a chapter on the events of the last war
with Great Britain we make an extract below.
The truth of the statements, CoL BEXTON.says, will
oe recognized by the oldercitizens of Tennessee.
To most of the people of tlie State, however, the
nistory will be new: t
"He had a load to carry all his life, resulting from
a temper which refused compromises and bargains,
and went for a clean victory, or a clean defeat, in
every case. Hence, every step he took was a con
test, and, it may be added; every contest was a vic
tory. I have already said that he was elected a
jwajor-ueneral in lennessee an election on which
so much afterwards depended by one vole. His
appointmentin the United States regular army wa3
a uwijui-M, iruin iiieauministratton, winch had twice
rciuseu to appoint mm a Ungadier, and once dis
banded him as a volunteer general, and onlvvield-
cd to his militia victories. Ills election as President
was a victory over politicians as was every leading
event of his administration.
'I have said that his appointmentin tlie regular
army was a victory over the administration, and it
belongs to the inside views of history, and. to the il
lustration of government mistakes, and the elucida
tion of individual merit surmounting- obstacles, to
tell how that was. Twice passed by to give prefer
ence to two others in the west, (General Harrison
and General Winchester,) once disbanded, and omit
ted in all tlie lists of military nominations, how did
he get at last to be appointed Major-General? It
was thus: Congress passed an act authorizing the
Pre'idcnt to accept organized corps of volunteers.
I proposed to General Jackson to raise a corps un
der that act, and hold it ready for service. He did
so; and with this corps, and some militia, he defeat
ed the Creek Indians, and gained tho reputation
wliich forced his appointment in tlie regular army.
I drew up tlie address which he made to his division
at the time, and when I carried it to him in the
evening, I found the child and the lamb, between
his knees. I raised a regiment myself, and made
the speeches at the general musters, -winch helped
to raise two others, assisted by a small band of
friends all feeling confident that if we could con-.
quer uie ursi uiincuity master tlie first stepan'd
get him upon the theatre of action, he would do the
rest himself. This is the way he got into the'.regu
lararmy, not only unselected bv thewisdom of gov
ernment, but rejected by it a stone rejected by the.
master-builders and worked in by an unseen hand,
to become the corner-stone of the temnle. Thnwoil 1
men of Tennessee will remember all this, and if is
time that history should learn it. But to return to
the private life and personal characteristics of tliis
ready:" tbough it Is natural for Emneror Nicholas to
.appeat4inconcemed'abontit;atia t6 spTeaIirougir
ms ministers, whercyerthev' are, the notion that lie
hashadevery Qiing in his -own way. If the Em
peror had every thing his own way, he would have
inarched his troops to Constantinople'and re-established
the Byzantinic Empire on a huge scale.
That would have made him the greatest Tartar
chief since Timor, Tamerlane and Gengis Khan.
As it is he must have recourse to negotiation, and
.divide his power and influence in the East with
England and France. He wasalittletoohot-footed
after "manifest desUny," and thusha3. been com
pelled to retrace his steps. Still it must not be for
gotten that it is a coalition that has. thwarted his
designs,and that coalitions are liable to changes and
dissolution 'Kussia ha3 the advantage of unity and
fixity of purpose, and an opportunity will probably
he.offered her within the next decade to renew her
pretensions, under more favorable auspices of suc
cess. There is no coalition of mere princes and states
tliat can eventually check the ambitious designs of
Bussia in the East none that can place, an fillima
ium on her further growth and power. The revo
lutionary ideas of Europe alone can do it, because
those ideas, if carried Into practice, would give a
national existence to Italy, Hungary, Poland aud
Germany, and thus threaten tke integrity of the
Russianjnonarchy. Antfit Is preelsely"the faculty,
possessed by Louis Napoleon, of throwing the
weight of moveable, military, propagandist France
into, the scale ofEnropeart politics, that has alarmed
Emperor Nicholas, and made him halt in tho princi
palities instead of pursiiing liis victorious march to
the ancient capital of tlie Greek Empire.
There was a time fjn 1833) when Mr. Canning
could threaten the1 plenipotentiaries of the Northern
despotic powers, assembled at the Congress of Yer
ona, with ''letting democracy loose upon Europe,"
in case the Congress, decided aught against the inde
pendence of tlie Spanish American colonic?; and
the threat had its effect. But England has since so
completely compromised her position with the lib
erals of Europe, that even now Napoleon III.
could give her large odds in that game and heather.
And yet it is the fear of that democracy, "again let
loose," which has kept the Russian army in Molda
via and Wallachia, and which is sure to make it re
JIow long tho peace of Europe is likely to he
patched up, however, is difficult to say. Suchlarge
standing armies as are now1 in the field must, it
would seom,. furnish themselves the occasion of their
employment. Each State exhausting its resources,
war is the only means of re-establishing some sort
of equilibrium out of the spoils of a suffering part.

TO THE VOTERS OE THE CITY.
I have been astonished to find in circulation a rumor
connected with tie Mayor election, intended to do me the
grossest injury. It b rumored actively that Messrs. Mcin
tosh and Wilson, who hare a feuit against the President of
the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad . Company, for
work done as contractors, and who are friendly to my elec
tion as Major, are tnus desirous of my election because
theycipect me to vote for some man for- PresidenLof ,the
Railroad Company against Mr. Stephenson, who will be
inore favorable to allowing their claim than he has been
'This rumor is doubtless untrue and unjust. I .had' never
conceived a thought of any such thing, until I found
thgeoppo.ej tame.giviog-drculation to it. I utterly re
pel, repudiate, and disavow that I could be actuated by any
such dishonorable purpose in discharging my eQicial duties
as Mayor. I nm but an obscure' mechanic, but I do not con.
ceive that'I am therefore with the more impunity to be thus
attacked and stigmatized. "
I appeal to the public for justice and fair play in this
race. 1 do not know nliat other Talse rumors may be put

TnE Cotto.v Crop. From all parts of Mississippi
and Alabama, there is a general concurrence of ac
counts of the great calamity to the cotton crop, (a
few- weeks ago ro promising,) from boll-worms,
and theunpropitious rainy season. Alettershown
the editorof the Mississippi. from a gentlemanwlio
has just traveled over a large portion of Mississippi
and Alabama, expressed the confident opinion that
the crop cannot exceed 2,500,000 bales.
The Diinuji Crystal 1'alace Exhibition. Twenty-thousand
season tickets to tho"Diiblin Exhibi
tion have been sold. Tlie net proceeds have
reached the sum of $320,000, and it is thought will
reach double that sum. The largest number of vi
sitors in one day was 18.103, and the, .largest, re
ceipts -in' one day were 1:000; It is considered
certain that Mr. Dargan will be re-paid the half
million of dollars which he advanced for the buil
ding and other preliminaries.
JSPThe cotton ciop of tho United States for
the fiscal year, ending tlie 1st instant, is computed
at 3,202,882 bales. Of this there has been used in
tlie State3 north of Virginii 071,000 bale?, and
about 90,000 south of that State. The balanco has
been exported. Only about one fifth of the cotton
crop is consumed in this country.
