THE DEBATE. ONTHE LIQUOR QUESTION.
An r.We and interesting debate lias been progres
sing in -the Senate for the last two or three days, on
a bill introduced by the Senctor from Davidson,
(Mr. Heid,) "to ascertain the '.vill of th. people of
Tennessee in regard to the restraint of the sale of
tpiritnus liquors.'!- "We should have been glad to
have reported ot length the debate on tbis bill, had
we the room to spare for its publication. 2fot hav
ing the. spacey however, we must make a brief ab
str.ictanswer. The bUl makes provision for submitting the ques
tion of "prohibition" or "no prohibition" to the
people in January, 1854; and seem to be intended
simply to ascertain the will of the people on the
subject, as no act of legislation is made to depend
upon the result.
Messrs. Jokes, Rodertson and Reid have ad
dressed the Senate in lengthy and able speeches in
favor of ' the bill. These gentlemen have each de
clared' lliat, if the billpassed, they might themselves
vole against prohibition, and Uiat they advocated
the measure as one demanded by a respectable por
tion of the people .of tho State, and as the best
means of allaying excitement, and of removing the
question from the arena of party politics.
Miv Nixps made a ppeech in opposition to the
hill, which was characterized by great ability.
Mr. UAVE-atob spofofcn tho same side, and made an
argumn clwaetcrired by that sound, strong sense
for which hc4s so much distinguished.
H- FAnqrmAKSON spoke briefly on the same side,
fthowtng tltat ."prohibition" wa3 very differently
tM ed by different advocates of the bill, and
moveo to recommit it, with instructions to the
tup- ttee to report in detail the provisions of the
bill to be submitted to the people. Mr. FAitQonAP.
sos spoke at some length in support of this motion,
and was replied to by Mr. Reid. ;
REPORT OF THE POSTMASTER OENERAE.
The whole number of Post Offices in the United
States at the close of the last official terra ending
June 30, '1852, was 21,320. Of this number 255
areof.the.highest ctass, the Postmasters.of which
arc appointed by the President.
At the present date, Dec 1, 1853, the total num
ber of Post Offices is 22.GSS. During the pastyear
commencing July, 1, 1802, 1,"893 Post Offices were
established; -119 were discontinued; and there were
appointed to office during said year, besides the
1.S9S Postmasters to the newly established offices
aforesaid, 3.S50 upon resignation, 225 on death, 182
ly change of site, 91 where the Postmasters had
moved awayy and 2,321 on the removal of prior
neumbent, being 8.5C7 Postmasters appointed
uring the 3'ear ending Juno 30, 1853.
At the close of the fiscal year, ending on the 30th
June last, there wero in operation within the United
States- 0,092 mail routes. Their aggregate length
wsb 217,743 miles, and 0,5S3 contractors were em
The annual transportation of the mails on those
routes, was 01,891,542 miles, and the annual cost
thereof, $4,495,9GS, being about seven cents two
mills per mile. Of these 01,892,542 miles ol annual
transportation, 12,9SG,705 miles are required to be
performed on railroad?, at a cost of $1,001,321, be
ing about twelve cents three mills per mile; 0,085,
005 miles in steamboats, at a cost of $032,308, be
ing about nine cents four mills per mi'e, 20,330,320
miles in coaches, at a cost of $1,200,908, being
.about five cents six mills per mile; and 29,S90,44C
- miles in modes not specified, at a cost of $1,055,313,
hoing about five cents per mile.
The expenditures of the Department during the
last fiscal year were $7,9S2,758. The gross reven
ue from all sources was $5,940,724.
It appears from the foregoing statement that the
gros3 revenue of the year, ending June 30, 1853,
falls short of the expenditures by the sum of $2,
052,031. $1,571,000 of this deficiency is supplied by the
balance on the Auditor's books on July 1, 1852,
and by , the appropriations to supply deficiencies,
nmounting to upwards of $1,000,000, leaving
$510,000 to ba provided by Congress for the service
of the year ending June 30, 1853.

UnlikenanyoUier-city-Hn-Enropethe capital of
Austria is divided into two distinct parts, called the
old and new city. The old is strongly fortified with
awall nnd'fo!setbat forms almost a completecircle,
and separated from the new by. a- broad' street, and
the Glasis, which is beautifully ornamented with
shade trees, and constitutes one of the most de
lightful promenades about the city. J propose in
thi3 communication to confine myself exclusively
to Vienna within the walls, and leave the outside
objects for another letter.
The firat.place of interest to the stranger is the k
Cathedral of-St Stephen, from thesummit of which'
is furnished an excellent' .view of the snberb's,
(which are far.moro extensive than the city itself,),
the windings of' the Danube,the Prater, and the
four battle-fields of Napoleon, vie Lobau, Wagram;
Aspern and Essling. Thi3 Cathedral is rega'rdedby
architects as the most perfectspedmenof theGothic
order in Europe. The tower is particularly beau
tiful and exquisite in its proportions, diminishing
gradually from its base to its summit in regularly
retreating arche3 and butresses. Hall-way up the
tower is the station of tho Fire Watch for tho city.
"Each window-sill in tills apartment has a provis
ion for fastening a telescope, whose movements are
marked by a stand on which it is placed, upon grad
uated circles placed horizcntally and vertically.
Registers have been constructed for each window,
so that the telescope, having been pointed to any
object, and the corresponding, horizontal and ver
tical numbers upon the graduated scale read off, tho
name of tho object whether building or street, is as
certained by reference to them. Thus the exact
spot where a fire may break out is ascertained, and
the intelligence is instantly conveyed to those be
low by enclosing a ticket inscribed with the par
ticulars in a hollow brass ball, which is dropped
down a pipe leading to the botton of the tower.
Thence it is transmitted to the fire-offices." The
largest bell in the tower was made of one hundred
and thirty pieces of cannon taken from the Turks
after their repulse from tho walls. It weighs 380
cwU The roof is very steep, and covered with
colored tiles, forming a collossal mosaic of the Aus
trian Eagle. The interior presents many beautiful
specimens of Gothic architecture, but looks dusky
"and gloomy. At the time we made our visit,
great number of people from the country occupied
the seats (most of them asleep) waitiDg to be con
firmed. They entered the city in processions, with
a man in front of each body bearing a large cross
with a figure of our Saviour nailed upon it, and
blood trickling from the wounds to represent his

I counted about seventy metal coffins, some of
which are very magnificent- Those of Maria

II, are the finest. Those placed there recently are
The church of the Augustincs was next in order.
The chief ornament of this church is the beautiful
monument of the Archduchess Christina of Saxc
Teschen, by Canova, one of his most successful works.
In the Todtcn-Kapelle, on one side of tho aisle, are
the tombs of the Emperor Leopold IL; of the great
Austrian General Daun, erected by Maria Theresa;
and of Tan Suietens, her physician, the person to
whom Austria is indebted for the present system of
universal education. In the Laretto Chapel we saw
through a class in the iron door the hearts of the
Imperial family, preserved in silver urns.
From tills gloomy vault we repaired to the abode
of the living, where all the mirth, pomp and parade
of poor frail humanity finds willing votaries. The
Imperial Roval Palace is an ancient building of
various dates and irregular structure, and is not im
posing from its architecture, but considerable ex
tent. It consists of three courts, or quadrangles.
The oldest part dates from tho year 1210. In front
of the palace is a large lawn, and extensive gardens.
In the court called Josephplatz formed by the new
part of the palace is a large and well executed
equestrian statue of the Emperor Joseph II. It
was erected to his memory by the late Emperor
Francis, and i3 a creditable performance of the
sculptor Zauner. In an adjoining court called
Franzenplatz there is a collossal bronze statue of
the Emperor Francis, erected by his son. The ex
pression of the venerable soverign in the act of
blessing his people with the motto "Amorvm
mtum populis rom," is fine, but the drapery Ls clum
sy and the limbs are awkward. It is the work of
Marchesi of Milan. In the buildings connected
with the palace are to be seen tho most valuable
cabinets of Vienna, a brief notice of which may not
The Cabinet of Antiquities contains a very cxten-'
sive collection of valuable curiosities, among which
are several cameos of great size. One "Theipe

and cost 12,000 ducats. Others of Alexander the
Great, Rozana and the head of Tiberius are also re
markable. Here also is an Agate dish 28J inches
in diameter, which is so valuable as to have formed
part of the dowery of Mary orBurgundy, wife of
the Emperor Mazimihian. Another very curious
thing is the celebrated Salt Cellar made for Francis
1st by Benvenuto Cellini. Twelve thousand Greek
vases, and one hundred and thirty-four thousand
ancient coins and medals add to the value of this
Tho Cabinet of minerals surpasses in many de
partments, every other cabinet in Europe, and is well
arranged. Amongst the objects that attracted my
attention particularly was a precious opal, the
largest known, from Czerwem'tza, near Kaschau,
weight 17 oz. Choice specimens of chrysolite,
from Greenland; wavellite, from Brazil; Styrian ar
ragonite, and other rare minerals; also, a fine col
lection of diamond crystals, some splendid speci
mens of emerald, and the most extensiveand com
plete assem blage existing of rorolites, or stones
which Uave fallen from the sky in different parts of
the world. One of the largest, a mas3 seventy-one
lbs. in weight, fell Tf 51, near Agrara. Near it I
observed, much to my surprise, pieces from David
son and Cocke counties, Tennessee, besides various
specimens of coal and other valuable minerals from
our State, contributed by my old Professor Gerard
Troost, late of the Nashville University. We have
a larger showing in this cabinet than any of our
sister States, and if our citizens would only turn
their attention to the exhaustless wealth of our
mountains, Tennessee in a few years would be
more desirable than the gold regions of the new
El Dorado on the shores of the Pacific. In this
collection may be mentioned the large boquet of
precious stones, set in a manner to resemble va
rious flowers, and made for Maria Theresa. It is
The Museum of Natural History, founded by
Francis I, and at his private expense, is one of tho
most extensive and interesting collections of the
kind in Europe. The ornithological department is
-very complete, containing in some instance six or
eight specimens of thesamo bird, in order to show
the change of plumage from youth to old age, and
the difference between male and female feathers.
The Imperial Library contains one of the most
valuable collections in the world. It owes its or
igin to the private collection of books formed by
the Emperor Frederick III, and increased by suc
cessive contributions of later sovereigns. It con
tains nearly 300,000 volumes, and upwards of 16,
000 MSS.; also 300,000 prints, embracing some of
thejjw3tijpecimens of the art. Amongst the cu
riosities ayjte mentioned a tablet of bronze, on
jwliich is engraved a P.otnan Act of Parliament, for-
jbidding Bacchanalian ceiemonies, dated in the ycarjJ

The Imperial Jewel Office is inferior to several
others inEurope, yet contains many precious stones,'
and valuable antique belonging to .royalty. The
regalia of Charlemagne, said to Jiave been taken
from his grave at Aix-Ia-Chapelle, and used at the
coronation of the German emperors for many cen-
; turies, consists of a crown ornamented with uncut
.stones, a sceptre, orb, Dalmatic, sword, gloves and
shoes. The crown and sceptre of Rudolph II. The
crown, sceptre, and robes, worn by Napoleon at his
coronation in Milan as King of Lombardy, consti
tute the chief attractions of this collection. Among
the sacred relics I observed the holy spear and nails
of the cross; a tooth of John the Baptist; a piece of
the coat of St. John the Evangelist; several links of
.the chains of Saints Peter, Paul and John; a piece
of the true cross; a piece of the table-cloth used at
the Last Supper, tfce. Pre-eminent amongst the
precious stones I noticed the Florentine diamond,
worn and lost by Charles the Bold, at the battle of
Granson, and found by a Swiss, who sold it for five
florins. It weighs 133 carats, and an emeral brought
from the Holy Land by the Duke of Austria, weigh
ing 29S0 carats.
Connected with the Royal Palace, are the rooms
containing the State carriages, royal stables, and
riding school. We counted more than one hundred
carriages, many of which are very ancient. The
State . carriages look very grand and costly, but
heavy and uncomfortable. The sleigh in which
Maria Theresa used to drive in alone is exhibited,
and a light buggy made in the United States for tho
London Exhibition. The horses kept at the palace
are of the Spanish breed, and used exclusively in
the riding school, which is a large room with galle-
lenes, and the floor covered with loose sand. The
riding-master was present when we entered, dress
ed in full uniform, teaching fouryoung princes how
to sit in the saddle, and hold the reins. To a man
from Tennesseo it looked rather ridiculous, and I
venture the assertion that many of our cotton
headed boys would mount the most firey steed in
the stable without saddle or bridle, and ride him to
death. The grand stable opposite the palace con
tains more than COO of the best looking horses that
I ever saw, not excepting the Sultan's at Constan
tinople, or the Royal Muse in England. The build
ing is a perfect palace, finer even than the White
House at Washington. The troughs are made of
varigated marble, the rack3 of iron, and the floor
covered with plaited straw. This stable is guard
ed day and night by soldiers, and if a horse is ta
ken sick he .3 immediately attended.
The Opero House of this c.ty is a very hand
some building, and the company well sustained by
government patronage. We frequently saw the
young Emperor, his mother, father and brother oc
cupying the box appropriated for the royal family.
They seem devoted to amusements, and applaud
the performances with as much earnestness as those
who occupy the pit.
Yours, &c, Tekkessean.

Mr. Vicker, Yankee Mac, "Comedian to the born

Cleveland about two years ago, in search for a fu

House, and during his stay there had a "difficulty"
with a person who roomed with him one evening,
in which McG. shot three times at his antagonist,
slightly wounding him the third time, lie was im

A friend of the Marshal entered his cell, and
found him seated, his head resting on his hands, and
looking like one who had entirely given up in

without ever changing his position.
"Ruined! bah!" returned his friend, "don't be a

an aggravated case, and had you killed him you
would not have been ruined!"
"I know it," said the Marshal. suddenly starting
up, "but three times! oniy tmnic oi iu to snoot
three times at a man and not kill him! I am polit

"Brandy and water," was tho reply.
"Why don't you drink mint juleps?"
"Mint juleps?" queried the old man, "why, what
in the name of drinks is that?"
"A most delicious drink, was the answer, "and
I'll show j'ou how to make it, as I seo you have

The young fellow soon produced the julep, and
the old man was delighted with it.
About a month after, on his return home, the
Virginian thought he would stop at his old friend's
and ''indulge," but judge of his surprise when his
enquiries at the door for his friend was answered
by an aged female darkey, with
