GEORGE W..J0JJE3 AND
SHIP. AH AT
The Lincoln Journal fpr.biisb"lvat tho " homo of
Hon. George W. Jones, rnafces the following sensi
ble and well-timed commenta upon the article
which we copied the, other day from the Washing-'
ton H'jr. We girvs them in plaeef sorad'.further
comments we ll? 3 inrselyes designed oa this sub-,
Tho Jouraal says :
We cppy tlia above from the Washington Even
ing Star, ' a lienlnfl paper published in Washington
Oily, as a well deserved compliment to Mr. Jones;
and also for the jiiirnoso of correcting some inaccu
racies, supplying some omis?ion3 and to directthe
ultention of "the country particuUrly to the reasons
utile 1 by the writer, why Mr. Jones will probably
not be elected Speaker ot the approaching Cou-
1st. Tha writer is incorrect in Uie statement, that
Mr. J. has been in Congress eight years lie has
already served ten years in 1 now elected for the
enduing two years; an J has omitted to state that
his course has" been so well appreciated and so fully
approved by his constituent., that except his first
canvass he lias had no opposition ; but lus been re
turned at each succeeding election, with an increas
ed vote in every county of his district Such b
Mr. J.'s standing at home, where he has been known
longest and best; and such is the hold, his able
and untiring services have jutly won for him, upon
i he confidence and esteem ofliU countrymen that
we felt called iioii two years ago, Th compliance
with the a'most universal wish of his constituents
as well as our own, to urge his claims before the
country for Speaker of Congress. The -writer for
lhe Star, says, Mr. Juuesisa strong competitor for
the Speakership that no other gentleman would
discharge the dutic3 -with more devoted concern for
the well being of the country but expressos the
ojtiuion-tliat 'lie can hardly be elected.' The reas
o.is given lor this opinion is the point to which we
wish to call the particular attention of the country.
''lit ii unpiptthtr .in Wishing fan because he never
wafers, from the pmpo.e of economising the puUic
vnuey, ami keeping Vie government in wiat necon-
ieia'jTtsb:f belieres t h, its legitimate sjihere.' Our
readers who are not familiar with the outside in
lljcnces which opera to upon the action of legisla
tive bodies, will be surprUed lo see 'such a reason
stated for the defeat of any man. The writer continue--:
''Those who seek special favors from Con
gress hate and fear him," and again ' his incapacity
to yield an inch on any point, will iirake seriously
agaiiwt his election to presidj over the Ilou'e,
while there cannot fail to be ? tronger outside in
lliienees agiin-t him than any other maii." And
these are the reasons given by a respectable journal
pub'i-hed at Washington, where these outside iu
tlueneesare seen, and known, and felt, for the opin
ion that George W. .Tone 'can hardly be elected.'
What a commentary have we here, upon the con
dition of the country an 1 the integrity of the peo
ple's representative. When devotion to the pub
lic welf.ue ; and a i unwavering and incorruptible
fidelity t j the puVic interest beco.ne obstacles to
public advancement, the people should be alarmed
for the safety Of their institutions and exert them
selves more arduously to p'ace the government in
lhe hands of lioneH and incorruptible men. Ue
rause George W. Jones has labored for long years
with unwearied fidelity to preserve the people's
money from beiu squandered by extravagant ex
pedituret and being robbed by appropriations to
groundless elaim; and because he has stood as a
sentinel at the treasury dojr, refusing to let men
have the public treasury to make fortunes upon
these men, these outsiders ha'e him aud will bring
all their julliience to bear against his election, and
therefore the Stttr comes to the conclusion UiatMr.
J. can hardlv be elected.
The people will inquire, can it be true, that mem
bers of Congress the sworn representatives of the
people are so corrupt as to be influenced by these
outsiders? Itis tv.-n too true and is understood
and acknowledged by those familiar with tlieirpro
ucedings at Washingto:i. We observe in a late
number of the New Yoik Herald, an article on the
subject of Speaker, the editor says, he cannot tell
who will be Speaker until he lea in who Corcoran
i.ud Higgs are for. Corcoran and Itiggs are bank
ers aud large money dealers m Washington, and
want the tisv of the public funds the Speaker has
money at his disposal, for the payment of the mem
bers and by cu?t .m, without authority bylaw, the
money ha3 been placed in the hands of bankers who
operate upon it until checked out by the Speaker.
These men make fair weather with unfortuuate
members who loose their ni'irals with their money,
by advancing them money in the time of their need,
and in this way they secure their support for.the
men and measures favorable to their interest and
plans. Tliecorrective is m ine nanus oi me peopie
who should waich with the closest scrutiny every
act of their representatives and hold them to a rigid
accountability and whenever they find them for
getting or neglecting their duly to the country by
becoming pliant tools in the hands of u principled
men, they should be hurled from the places they
occupy, by an indienaut constituency. Mr. Jones
may not be elected Speaker, he may be defeated for
the reason stated by the Star, but it will only ren
der his fame his appreciation by thebonest masses
of the couutry the more enviable and enduring.
He will be marked as ilie man too honest to be
bribed by wine or money, too devoted to the pub
lic welfare to be turned Lide by other influences
too incorruptible to be bought with a price. Truth
is mighty and will prevail,' and the honest upright
jnan shall have 1ms leward.
THK UNITED STATES SURPLUS REVENUE.
The London limes has an article on the surplus
revenue of our National Tieasury, in whicli, after
.saying that of all the pacificators winch the pre3
: ent warlike crisis has called into action, the difficul
tly, of (hiding money i3 undoubtedly the most po
tent, and that the Chancellor of the Exchequer is
always cx-ojji-io a man of peace, adds :
That which cut off the ways and mean, while it
''enormously increases the expenditure which dams
up the sources of taxation at tnc very moment wiiem
- Jt is draining them dry that which can convert a
jiuqdusinto a deficit, and a deficit, into a bankrupt
cy is a legitimate object of financial abhorrence.
Austria cannot keep tho expend turnover heriucome
within the monstrous amount of fifty millions of
llorins." In France imperial omnipotence cannot
cOerce the budget within reasonable dimensions;
and even we show loo much pride at our surplus for
"persons who regard it as a durable awl iennanent
possession. But there is one man in the world, and
that man a finance nimbler, who is troubled with
none of these difficulties nay, is just now suffer

It is refreshing to turn from-thc contemplation of

pelled by the farce of circumstances to remit. With
us, when a little surplus gives us the opportunity of

difficulty of selection is extreme, aud every teitiis- 1

i- TENNESSEE RAILROADS,
ft - .
The Legislature of the State, at its last session,
1851-52, adopted a system of railway improvements
then thought to be expedient and equitable to the
different sections; arid promised 'aid, in the loan of
'bonds, "to the amount of eight thousand dollars per
mile, to certain companies, upon the condition of
their complying, within a given time, with the re
quirements of-tbe act, tliat they-should have the
whole amount of their'stock subscribed, sufficient
to grade the road, &c., and have thirty miles, or
more, prepared for the reception of the iron rails.
, For the purpose of encouraging and securing a
continuous line of railway throughout the State,
charters were granted for the formation of a com
pany to build a railroad from Nashville to Memphis
and another from Nashville to Madrid Bend, ofi tho
Mississippi river. To these, .with a common Trunk,
.from Nashville to tho Tennessee river, crossing
' between Boss' Ferry and one mile below Whitcoak
Island, the aid of the Stato was pledged. But, in
case of the failure of either of these to comply with
the requirements of the act above specified, in four
years from lis passage, then the same aid was prom
ised to the Tennessee Central Railroad Company,
with all of the powers and privileges pledged toth'
Either of these lines would give a tolerably di
rect connection between Nashville and the Missis-
sippi river, as contemplated by the Legislature,- but
the Central Railroad would be the most direct, and
m the line for the 'nearest communication with the
system of railways in contemplation beyond the
Mississippi, in Arkansas, Texas, and towards the
Pacific ocean. In adopting a system of improve
ments, Tennessee should look to these connections,
by the most direct route, if she wouKF invite them
to her borders.
Nashville being tlie first great radiating point of
railways, ea3t of the Mississippi river, would natur
ally attract these connections, if she were wise, in
building a direct line to meet them; avoiding all
devious routes. These will necessarily be superced
ed, in time, as every where else, if they should be
constructed. Such a Railroad would, moreover,
bring a very large amount of trade and travel to
Nashville and along the Tennessee works, which
are now turned away and seek other marts and
channels, for want of it. In all time to come, this
deprivation will not only continue, but be increased;
should certain enterprises be carried out, the object
and effect of which is to turn every thing away
from the Metropolis. It will not only be felt in the
commercial aud other business relations of Nash
ville, but in the colleges and other literary institu
tions, in all Middle Tennessee, and in the profits of
all Railroads throughout the State.
Under the provisions of the charter for a Railroad
from Nashville to Memphis, some thousands of
dollars Jiave been subscribed in Carroll county, with
a Tiew to constructing a road to connect with the
Mississippi Central Railroad when extended at
Jackson. But the citizens in the counties more
immediately interested in the Tennessee Central
Railroad, seeing no movement for constructing a
railway from Nashville to Memphis or from Mem
phis to Nashville, have subscribed 225,000 to the
stock of that road, organized their Company, accord'
ing to the charter, expended some $5,000 or 0,000,
in surveys, to, and are now ready to make large
additional subscriptions and proceed immediately
with the work of construction; provided the Legis
lature will now give them tho aid of 'the State,
heretofore promised contingent!', whenever they
shall comply with the requirements of the law. This
Company holds the State bound to the fulfilment of
the compact, which has been formed and from which
it cannot be released.
It Is true that certain parties have seized upon
the charter granted for the purpose of constructing
a Railroad from Nashville to Memphis, organized a
Company under it, with the avowed object of build
ing a road from tho latter city to Louisville, in Ken
tucky; and claimed the aid of the State for this
purpose; a design never intended, but positively re
fused by the Legislature granting it. Having formed
combinations very injurious to other portions of the
State, they now come forward and ask the present
General Assembly to sanction their usurpation, by
passing other enactments, to enable them to con
summate itl Nothing could be more-detrimental
to other sections of the State.
Will not the members of the Legislature be dis
posed to carry out, in good faith, as heretofore man
ifested, the purposes of the people of Tennessee ?
The "New York Revielle" accused T. Detjn Reil
lev, Esq., of being the author of certain articles at
tacking the American Correspondent of the London
Times. Mr. R. repels the accusation in a long and
very amusing letter a perfect model of lively,
epistolary style. We copy the concluding para
graplis, to show his attachment for Uncle Sam and
his thorough Young Americanism:
I go forCapt. Ingraham I go for Cuba, for the
''hull of Mexico," as far down South as we can
get with the heat, and as far North as it will not
freeze a hot-blooded Yankee. I believe in our Com
mon Father in Heaven, and in our common Uncle
on the earth, and that is my religion. If Sam wants
a hacienda in Brazil, and a pagoda in India, and a
bathing box, with real black-fin oysters, and Irish
girls to rub down the dear old soul's cheeks, at any
spot of Irish soil, from Commerara to I'oldooda
light, and a snobby cottage by the Rhine, and a
seraglio in Turkey, all at the same time, I go in for
every bit of it; for I know nobody deserves it bet
ter, or abuses anything begets less. If he wants to
lick the Chinese Tartars, or the Spaniards, or the
Mexicans, I go in for that too. If he wants a gen
eral fight all round "withthera darned old monarchy
varmints," I will help him with all my soul and
body. And if he goes in to whip the British Gov
ernment, the owners of your correspondent of the
London limes, at all tixes, or any time, at matin,
meal, mass, or B.'pcr time, or night time, or all the
year round, on any subject, I want to be "fust in
thar." In short, if he likes to stretch himself out
ou the world, stick his feet up on tho Vesuvius, light
his cigar at Monotombo, and throw his arms, at the
Fame time, about the beauties of Cashmere, and the
vestals of Circassia, I will help him to stretch him
self out, and do "as he dam pleases." And though
it may be a century before the creature fully unfolds
himself, I will give heart and hand to whomsoever
tries to begin. And I believe Gen. Pierce has be
gun, and I would not advise you to try and stop
him. He is a roarei!

A "C'erk in the Interior."
A Sad Sight. One of yesterday's trains of cars
brought to the depot a sad result of life, which is
always tie result of existence, but not always so
peculiarly striking as this. Mr. Robert A. Saunders,
of Henderson county, Ketuuckj-, left his home with
a beloved and lovely wife, and one beautiful child,
but a short time ago, and proceeded to the West,
on a visit lo Uwt region. At Cincinnati, the wife
and child died, amidst strangers, but with the people
of that city alive to the distress of the survivor, as
his condition was peculiarly distressing. From
bearing the bloom and liveliness of a happy man, he
changed to '-the sear and yellow leaf" of the parting
year, and when he arrived at the Depot here, with
his sacred charge to carry home to "Old Kentucky"
for burial, he looked himself the picture of death.
The messenger of the beloved dead he wa, to take
them to their last repose, and he appeared as though
this would be his last. We met him at tho Nation
al Hotel, where the information of his bereavement,
and hi3 look of deep sorrow, had impressed the
whole house with a sympathy as true to human na
ture as it was just to their kind feelings and the
gentleman so afflicted. Last night, the bodies of
the wife and child were borne to Richmond, by the
husband and father, on their way home; a sad re
turn of a party who left home in buoyant spirits,
ai.dare to meet again with the coronet of death, at
the fire-side they left so happily. Washington

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP.
The Setasiship Interest versos TiiE-AiiixisTiii-tio.v.
The open warfare now being made by a
portion of the .steamship close "contract interest
against the Administration, has been confidently
anucipaieu nere oy weii-imornicu men; it uerag wen
known Ibfmontlis past that much of the violence
against the President and his Cabinet, manifested by
their Democratic opponents in New York, arises
from the fact that those of their agents fof tho
steamship interest) "who have "sounded" the new
txoverument on tins suqject, nave mvanaoiy come
oil with fleas in their tars. 'Ine. managing council
of the New York party above mentioned, are also
well know to be the managing men for all steam
ship schemes on tho Treasury which either trrab
-very much from it for a small consideration, or pro
pose to do that same through Shanghai aud African
steamer fines yet m embrvo. Some of thpm
also more or less interested not long since in various
naval steamer (proper) special contracts, against
which itis now well understood that the President
ana becretary of the Navv firmlv set their faces.
Among the stories which they have started, is
one saying that the message will recommend that
all .existing mail steamer contracts be annulled by
Congress forthwith; aud thereupon they howl in all
directions over the determination of the President to
destroy the efficiency of the navy of the United
States; as though (with the exception ofj possibly,
.the Washington and Hermann,) there is a single
steamship built by an American mail steamship
company actually lit for war purposes. However,
they are probably barking up the wrong tree, in the
matter ot what the iixecutive is likely to recom'
mend. From what we hear, we shall by no mean3
be surprised to hna m tfie message the delects in
this system pointed out in strong language; and also
a recommendation that Uongress shall carry out the
clause giving them authority to purchase the ships
at a valuation, where that can be done beneficially
for the Treasury and for the naval service combined.
If. the current investigation which the Tostmaster
tieneral is makin"-, shall show that an important sa
ving can be made, the transportation of the mails to
and from California be greatly expedited, and a heavy
increase ot postage secured by executing the clause
ot the contracts ot Lalilornia steam mail companies
authorizing the government to purchase certain of
meir siijps, anu tuus enu tue existing arrangements,
ten to one the President will tell Congress so: leav
ing with that body the responsibility of doing their
uuty in tue matter.
f UWII VVVL4 & VA AA Liu Ul If Ailvll
we have knowledge to justify the allegation that
there is the slightest disposition on the part of the
Administration to recommend the abrogation of the
present contract with tho Collins line before its ter
mination according to its letter; however certain
it may be that when that time arrives, the Govern
ment of the United States will be as much opposed
to all the moon schemes of steam line3 at the cost
of the U. S. Treasury, which half a dozen different
squads of needy speculators are preparing to urge
on Congress. Whatever they may think of the
impropriety of the principle on which the Collins,
and French and Belgian lines contracts are based,
as they stand they are probably regarded as neces
sary adjuncts of American transatlantic commerce,
not to be dispensed with, when nothing is at hand
to supply their places. In the case of the Califor
nia lines on the other hand; private enterprise of
the same sort beats them on every trip lrom three
to ten days, and offers to perform the same service
in less time at one third its. present cost to the
Treasury; and that too without asking a stipulation
which is not granted to every domestic mail con
tractor in the United States.
In fact, a portion of the mail steamer speculating
interest lias gone very deeply into politics, setting
up to De llietieau aniUront ot the Democratic op- kets, and one cloak; there were in the saddle-bags some pa
position to the Administratfen, because the latter pers, two letter from the Hon. B. F. Perry, of South Caro-
cannot be coaxed to regard the existing surplus as
lairly plunder lor those disposed to speculate alter
this fashion. They are showing fight through the
JJeraUi, the Albany Argus, the National Democrat,
and various other papers, while Mr. Cooley is
struggling ior mem on the stump. Just now, they
are squealing terribly, because they shrewdly sus
pect that it will take loud hallooing to get popular
sympathy enough to serve them.
THE -K.FFECT OF THE A1ARYLAXD JLECTIOX IX
"Washinotox. The Whig politicians stationed here,
are by no means surprised with the result of the
Alary land, efecf ion. Indeed, they counted upon
carrying nothing there no serious ellort to organ
ize their party for the contest having been made.
In view of the fact that they have secured the Leg
islature, in the face of a coniderable majority for
the Democratic candidate for Governor, they are
perfectfy satislied. inasmuch as they thus secure
the United fetatcs bcmitor, who is to succeed sena
tor Pearce. In retaining him in the Senate, in the
face of a heavy majority of the popular vote, they
(the lugs in ashington; realize, practically, the
victory is at least half theirs. On the other hand,
the Washington Democrats are huzzaing at the
top of their bent over the success of ilesirs. May
aud Vansant, They believe that Mr. May is des
tined greatly to increase the oratorical strength of
their cause in the House; wlucu is probable. The
Administration's immediate circle regard the
grand result as a stinging rebuke to the disappointed
ollice-seckers' part' or clique, whose policy for
months past has been to endeavor to create the im
pression that they (the Administration) are sold
stock and lluko, to the Jree boil interest, ihev
see in this Maryland election a vindication of the
propriety of their policy of forgetting, or rather
overlooking past uillerences in all who now stand
on the .Baltimore Democratic platform, not second
in its emphasis to that whicli they drew from the
Georgia election. Those here who claim to be more
national in their Democracy than the Administra
tion, are sadlv chop-fallen; as they had been pro
phecying that "in this election, Maryland would
teach the Cabinet that they could not be traitors
to the Union with impunity" and all that sort of
thing. On the whole, it lias certainly served to put
(o-called) ''National Democracy" at quite a low
discount here; as it shows that very little Demo
cratic capital is to be made by "cutting up" against
Bexxett axdthe Trexch Missiox. Mr. Bennett,
in a Washington letter by telegraph, xvriiten in the
JleraloTs sanctum in Xew Yorlc, and published in
that paper of 3'esterday morning, admits, at length,
that there is on the files of the State Department, a
formal application for the French mission for him
self. We notice this fact, only because it proves
the invariable correctness of all we vouch for in our
AVashington news columns.
i he r all or 1'ekix. e have now reason to
believe that the Government no Ioncrer discredit the
accounts of the fall of Pekin, (China) which reached
here a lew days since, as we announced. They
probably have further corroborative advices of the
fact coming by the same steamer, which have at
tracted their attention since we obtained the infor
mation on which our recent ParaGraph on the sub
ject was cased.

He had paid his Doctor's Bill, without any calculatiou of
making another, thnking it was of no use; and no one ex
pressed any hope of his recovery except a stranger, who
happened to pass that way, and advised him to a different
course of treatment, which has this recommendation, that
in fee ictets tints it has made him feel like engaging in
business. Rut why does he come out of this spell of sick
ness astrong advocate of Dr. Arnold's Union Pillsf
Becuse, they are Wva principal remedy used in the treat
