In r. forencc to tlie Richmond Enquirers charges
agniusi Mr. Dix, tho Louisville Democrat remarks :
''We thought, upon reading the strictures of the
K fjtiirtr, that the editor was entirely mistaken.
It is .i dilfercnt sentiment from any wo have seen
from ex -Senator Dix. It was s tipKwed for a time
in 181-, tint ho would support General Cass for
I're.-ident, owing to his uniform moderation on
this sul j ot. He never indulged, either in tlie Sen
ate or upon the stump, in the fanatical rant of that
ju'rio.'. The Vax Bl'ken parly nominated him for
tlit' f!i -0 of Governor; but their test of orthodoxy
wai imply the proviso which was advocated by
the whole whig- party of the free States. Danikl
i:jst n and Miliaeii Fillmoue oocup'ed at tlio
tiin.'the same position on tho slaver question,
and, in leed, the former said and did more in ,Uie
Irecvoil came than did Mr. Dix."

Tt.i whig papers in different sections are now
regaling their readers with the letter of Mr. Col

committee of arrangements to address the ratifica

Mr. l!i:o."sox is now a sound compromise democrat,
n:n! as such we cordially forgive him for his past

i ut forgiving all others like him who repent and

Li-t These gentlemen have furnished copies of
their letters to the New York Herald, from which
pAirr w e extract them. The fact that both of these
fcentlunen occupy highly responsible positions un
der the present administration, as well as the fact
that they enjoy deservedly high reputations fortal-
1 nts, and devotion to democratic piiueiples, will at
tiael to their letters more than ordinary attention.
It will be seen that they take explicit and decided
positions against the ticket nominated by the union
democrats, and in favor of that put forth by the
InmK In their reasons for preferring the latter to
tho former ticket, we see nothing different from tho
general grounds on which their friends at Syracuse
declined toco operate with their formerpolitical jis-i-oeiate-i.
The only difference that we discover is
that theie is a clearness and straight-forwardness ir.
f taiing their positions, which gives to their letters
au ape.irauce ofeilldor that does not characterize
nil the proceedings of their friends. These gentle
men cannot reconcile it to their consciences to con
tinue longer the political connexion which has
heretofore existed between them and the leadvrs of
tho uivoii democrats.
They are unwilling, by co-operating with them,
to concede that they are honest and Fiueeie in
nbanilouiiig their founer erroneous positions and
adopting the true political creed. It strikes us tliat
there i a severity in tfiis judgement which leaves
no room for repentance or reformation. Hut neith
er of these gentlemen explains the reason why they
l.ave selected this particular time for dissolving n
connexion from which they are now enjoying high
infield honors and benefits. It is not shown that it
would not have been more candid and consistent to
have- lepudiatcd all association with the umoudeiii
K;rats nt the opening of some one of tlie political
contests m which they have been associated for tho
last three years. It is not shown how their con-M-ientiuus

In support of Gen. l'ierce, they did not tl10n an

slderati-n. The announcement c" President
Pierce's cabinet was a distinct announcement of
his policy in regard to the recognition of all as
pood democ ats who stood honestly on the
democratic creea promulgated at .Baltimore.,
t'liic rvilinv was franklv and tlieir WlnrivJ i.n.1 , !
tdupon by the President, and it wa3 known t 1
ncn better than to Collector Brnnon nn l District
Attorney O'Cono.-; It was ktiwn to theinj-also,
that there was no Statu in tho Union in which the
carrying out of this policy would be more cmbar-
rassing than iu .New York. They knew more: they j
knew that the oiTuvs of collector and districtaUor-
uey were tendered to them in puixinnee and in
furtherance of tliat distinctive policy which sought j
"to obtain harmony by a really recognition of an ob--literatiiJn
of all past"sclum and divisions in the
part'. Knowing these things, and seeing now
scrupulously conscientious these gentlemen now are,
jne.are at a loss to comprehend iiow they brought
their minds to an endorsement of the well-understood
policy of the administration by accepting the
responsible positions tendered to them. We re
sneetfnllv submit. In their enlightened winds and
consciences, that in accepting these places, with
tlieir knowledge ot, tlie views ana une oi poucy oi
the President, the- virtually sanctioned that policy, 1
and impressed ujon him tlie pleasing conviction that
he would have tlieir influence and co-operation in
giving success to his administration. The-c distin
guished gentlemen will never put in the plea of ig
norance as to the views and purjioses of tlie Exe
cutive, and in tlieir letters they do not intimate that
he has iu the least degree sv. crved from his original .
purposes. The President is not likely to yield his
opinions at to what duty to the great democratic
party of the country and obvious considerations of
manhood and commou honesty requireathishand.
Ho will wot disregard the clear and explicit expres
sion of the united democracy assembled at .Balti
more in June, 1852, at the suggestion of any poli
tician or combination of politicians in New York
city or out of it. He will not overlook what took
place in the glorious canvass that followed that con
vention. He cannot forget, if he would, tliat tlio
lion. Charles O'Coiior and (Jen. John A. Dix stood
upon the same platform wiih their respective friends,
and addressed the same audience at tlie great rati
fication meeting nt Tammany Hall soon after tho
nomination, and the rejoicing on the part of our
true friends consequent upon seeing those distin
guished gentlemen together, and the indications of
harmony upon principle that burst upon us from all
parts of the Union, and gave nnmistakeable prestige
of the signal victory subsequently achieved, and the
uuprecedented.majority of 28,000 democratic votes
in the Umpire State. Whilst the President does
not arrogato to himself the province of omniscience,
and claim to bQ tho judge of men's hearts, he has
imperatively demanded, as the condition of a bond
of union, a trunk declaration of fidelity to the Bal
timore platform aud the great principles of his In
augural Address. What more as an honest man
and a true patriot could he have done? In this en
v tire policy lie has yielded only to the united wis
dom and united patriotism of the masses who called
him to the head of the government, no never will
desert them or tlieir principles, and we warn fac
tious men that those masses will never desert mm.
But as we have uniformly taken the grouud that it
was not lor us to look into the hearts ot the barn
burners or free-soilers who came forward with
cheei fulness and distinctness ujwn the Baltimore
nlatfoim. so we will not now assume to look into
the hearts of the collector and district attorney, but
present them, as they have presented themselves in
their letters, without liirther comment.
THi: ENSUING LEGISLATURE.
The coming session of the Legislature of this
btate wnljlie an iinpoitant one. Unestions ol In
tenia! Improvement by the State, by issuing hir
bonds payable at a distant period to enable the dif
fercut Itailroad companies to purchase iron and
equipments alter tho roads shall Have been graded
to the amount of eight thousand dollars per mile, is
one question which will engage the attention of our
Kepresentatives to n considurable extent, m dis
criminating between roads that will prove profita
ble, and those tliat will not, as the ultimate pav
meut 10 the State will depend on the profits derived
from the road-". The question of fixing a definite
period lor tlie election of Judges and Attorney Gen
erals by the people, bids fair to become a ltone of
contention; some contcna that the Legilatnre has
no constitutional power orright to disturb the pres
ent encumbents, but that they should hold, and
have a clear right to hold tlieir respective offices
until the' expiration of the term for which they
were elected by the Legislature previous to tlie late
change of the Constitution, while others contend
that they have not this right. Again it is contend
ed by some, that by the wording of the act submit
ting the question of clianging the constitution to
the people, the present Legis'aturc will liave no
power or right to designate - the lime for electing
these judicial functionaries by die people, but that
the next Legislature will, while others entertain
opinions quite the reverse. Some change of poli
cy or modification iu the management of the Bank
ot'Tenuessee is also a question of great importance
to tlie people, aud is necessarily compelled to be
brought up and acted upon.
A thorough revision of the statute Laws of the
State is another question of great importance that
should be caretully heeded by tlie representatives
of the people. The propriety and pokey of estab
lishing probate Courts throughout the State is a
questiou which will nq doubt lie agitated. The en
largement of the present School fuud of the Slate
either by direct taxation or some other means of
raising a revenue for that purpose, is a question pf
very great importance to the people, and will no
doubt enter largely into their deliberations. The
election of U.S. Senitor, to succeed the Hon. John
Bell, whose term expires on lhe4thof March next,
is another question which will probably be a mat
terof absorbing interest. The claims "of two dis
tiu"iibhid members of the Whig I'a:ty, the Hon.
John Bell and Col. Henry, are already beinr can
vassed by the whig press. While the Democratic
partv, although, prefcring a democrat, to which we
think we should, in view of the late popular vote of
the i?tate, be entitled, yet Air. uentry as a whig
would tie more acceptable than either of the gen
tlemen mentioned. There are other questions ol'no
little importance which will probably be introduced,
in reference to which we will speak hereafter.

TRI l OF THE YOUNG J2KONAUT.
The young Aeronaut, Joseph Gates, was the ob
ject of much attention yesterday, as he traversed
the streets yelling tlie papers containing an account
ofhis wonderfuladrentures. The interest excited
iu his behalf enabled him to dispose of his
papers very rapidly, and thereb' collect quite a
rnug little sum. He called at our office, and des
cribed his voyage substantially as related by 113 yes
terday, except as to the cause of tho balloon's de
scending. It appiars the body of the balloon, al
though rounded at the top-and sides, tapered down
to auapertuic about one foot iu diameter, through
which the gas had been admitted. This aperture
was left unclosed, as tlie gas, being so man' times
lighter than the air, could not escape downward
through it. The valve by which the gas is let off
at the top is opened at pleasure by pulling the cord
attached. As before stated, this cord broke when
tlie boy attempted to jerk it. He was by no means
despondent at this, but gave up all hope of getting
down for the present. He settled himself in his
neat, leaned back against the netting, made himself
as contented as possible, and amused himself by
gazing upon the scene beneath him. At the dis
tanto of twenty miles he could seo San Francisco
very distinctly, while the ocean alar off looked like
burnished gold, from tho reflection oi tlie setting
sum In passing over the Loulra L-osta range, he
heard some one sing out, "Ho, Balloon I" He pulled
out some cigaritos he had with him, and threw
them down to the fellow, but "didn't wait to see if
he got 'em' He passed immediately over Marti
nez, where he saw distinctly tho people in the
street! and the steamboats at the wharf, but thinks
he was not himself seen. He then passed over
Siiisun Bay, a little to tlie IcftofBenicia, and passed
on up the river some thirty miles further. The mode
by which he finally reached the earth was very sin
gular: He was speeding comfortably along, unconscious
of his progress except by comparison with objects j
beneath, when the balloon got into a kind or eddy,
or whirlwind, caused by the meeting of two op
posing currents of air. This caused him to spin
round for a short space like a top, and made him
slightly dizzy. He recoverod from this, and found
himself lapidly descending. This he thinka wan oc
casioned by tho balloon's being intnpicssed between
the two currents of air, by which tho gas wa forced
out of the aperture below, of which mention has
been before made. As ho approached the earth,
instead of jumping, he swung off, still holding to
the baloon to keep it from darting up again. This
he was unable to do; he held on by his hands, his
feet dangling in the air, until the baloon had risen
about eight feet, when, finding that the was about
to be earned up again in a still more tmcomlort-
able position than before, he let go. It was the
shock from this fall tliat sprained his ankles. He

Pacific Railway Meeting. According to pre
vious notice an immense concourse of the citizens
of San Francisco assembled on the 23rd ultimo to
take into consideration the grand project of a rail
way across the. plains to some favorable point on
the Father of Waters. Activity was .urged upon
all Californians who desired rapid and cheap com
munication with the 'States.' In time of war, it
would protect us in'a great degree. Prompt ac
tion was the watchword of the agitators. The
Southern Routt, via Fort Smith, Santa Fe- and the
GUa, was received with most favor. Iu six years
there could be a continuous railway in ninning
order by this route. There cannot be a doubt of
that fact. Memphis alone, on account of its count
less advantages of position, should be the great
Eastern terminus. St. Louis will not suit Califor
nians at alL They are opposed to it almost in toto.

JIH. MACAULF.V O.N "JUNIUS."
The following letter, written by Mr. Macauley,
is just publi-hed, for the first time, in a new edition
of Lord Maiios's History of "England :
Albany, Jan. 3, 1S52.
Sir: I am obliged to you for the new number
of the Quarterly Ueview. I cannot say that it lias
shaken my opinion. 1 wonder, indeed, that so in
genious a peison as the reviewer should think that
his objections have made any impression on the
vast mass of e rcumstnntial evidence which proves
Francis to have beeu "Junius." That evidence, I
think, differs not only in degree, but in k'ud, from
any evidence which can be adduced for any other
It seems to me, too, that one-half of the argu
ment of the reviewer is answered by the other half.
First, we are told that Fiancis did not write the let
ters because it would have been singularly iufi
mous in him to write thcin. Then weare told ihat
he did not write them because he did not own them.
Surely this reason does nothang well together. It
is strange that a very proud man should not con
ftss wl.al would ditgrace him ? I lave always be
lieved that Francis kept silence becausehc was well
known to hate received great benefits fronVptTsons
whom he had, as "Junius" or as 'Veteran," abused
with great malignity.
It i-i odd that the reviewer should infer, from the
mistake about Draper's half-pay, that "Junius"
could not have been in the war-oflice. I talked
that matter over more than ten years ago, when I
vasSecrebiry-at-War, w.th two of the ablest and
best informed gi ntlemen in the department, and we
all three came to a eonclii.-ion the very" opposite of
that at which the reviewer has arrived. Francis
was chief clerk in the English Wnr-oflir e. Every
body wio drew half-pay through that office made
the declaration which "Junius" mentions. But Dra
per's half-pay was 011 the Irish establishment, and
of him this declaration was not reipiiied. Now. to
me and thoo whom 1 cpjisulted, it sei mi d the
most natural thing in the world that Francis, re
lying on his official knowledge, and not consider
ing that there might be a dill'erence betwetn the
practice at Dublin and the nn.clice at AVesI mil lis
ter, should put that unlucky question which gave
Drnj er so great hi advantage. I have rejieatcdly
Iintrdout this circumstance to men who aro ex
cellent judges of evidence, and I never found one
who did not agree with me.
It is not necessary for me to say anything about
ihe new theory which the reviewer has consiniet
ed. Lord Lyttleton's claims are belter than these
ofBmke or Barre, and quite as pood as those of
Lord George Saikville or Single Speech Hamilton.
But the case against Fiancis, or if you please, in fa
vor of Francis, rests on grounds of a very different
kind, and on coincidences such as would be suffi
cient to convict a murd Ter.
There is, however, one stronir oliWtion to the
theory of the reviewer which strikes meat the first
glance. "Junius, whoever he was, wrote a lopg
letter to George Grenville, which was preserved at
Stowe many years, and of whirh 1 have seen a co
py in Lord Million's possession. The letter eon
l.vns no decisive indications of the writer's situa
tion; but, op the whole, it sicins to be written by a
man not viry hudi in the rank of fortune. The
tone, though by any nip.ms abject, is that of an ii -feiior.
The author declares himself to be the wri
ter of a squib, then famous; called "The Grand
Council." He says that Grenville must soon be
Prime Minister. ' Till then I ish to remain con
cealed even from you; then I will make myself
known, and explain what I wish you to do for me."
I quote from niempry; hut this is the substance.
The original I have notfocn; but I am told that it
is the handwrifng of "Junius"' let'ers.
Now, this circumstance seems to me decisive
against Lord Lyttclton. He was George Gren
ville's cousin. The connection between the Stowe
family and the Hagly family had, during the two
generations, been extremely close. Is it probable
that George Grenville would not have known Lyt
telton'shand? lsitpossiblolh.it a letler written
by Lyttclton should have lain at Stowe eighty years,
and that none of the cousinhood should have" been
struck by the writing?
4)ut, 111 trnfli, the strongest argument against the
reviewci's theory are the arguments whipli, in my
opinion, prove that Francis was the author of the
