TUESDAY XORKIHG, AP.RIL 29, 1856.
The know-ncthing'ConTastioa of the Fifth Con
gressional district, which recently met at Lebanon,
nominated Robset Hattox, Esq., ns their Elector.
Mr. H. is a Eprightly and efficient popular declaimer,
and is likelj to be tha next member to Congress
from that district, unless the peoplo should conclude
to elect a good National democrat, which they cer
tainly ought to do.
The know-nothing Convention for this district,
which recently met at CIark3ville, nominated Jas.
31. QcAfttra, Esq., as their Elector. Mr. Quarlis
is the Attorney General for that Judicial circuit,
which he will of course resign, as his presoat posi
tion.will not admit of his remaining in office con
sistent with the new platform of his party. He is
a good speaker and as clever a fellow as it is possi
ble for a man;to be, who has deserted his old party
end joined the know-nothings. This gentleman
also hopes to get to Congress, we understand, if
Gen. ZoLuoorFEit should be run for Qorernor or
otherwise displaced from his present position. But
Gen. Zoixicorrsn will hardly be willing to give up
u certainty for an uncertainty, or yield a good
thing to accommodate others.
The most amusing circumstance of this Conven
tion was tho selection of our old friend Ament as
one of its Vice-Presidents. We would liko to have
been thoro to have Been him sitting up by Hokk
bsrqkr, the President. We know his heart was
fulL We can see him now, with his cleanly shaved
(ace and his largo shirt collar bristling under his
ears, as he throws himself back upon his official
dignity, a model for a statue ! Yo Gods, how he
But wt aro not altogether satisfied with the posi
tion which they gave our friend. We see no rea
son why be should play second fiddler to Mr. Hoes
bikoer. When did Horneircib ever floor the
Governor? When did he ever paint a picture of
"Jacob's ladder" and cerry it around to amuse
the b'hoye with ? When did he ev er make a speech
to a State Convention that called down such continu
ed applauee that nothing was heard that the speak
er said? We are sorry he didn't refuse I but being
''intensely" American, and believing in the doc
trine that "office is neither to be sought or declin-
bd'' he accepted.
We insist that our friend is not appreciated. But
there is a chance yet in store for him a position
precisely suited to his merit. Fillmore may re
fuse to run with iioxojoK for the Presidency. In
that event, whatis Donel9oh to do ? We know of
no one more likely to accept than Amskt.
"ABDii andDoxELjost!" That's the ticket. Wo
can gee it on the transparencies now. We can
hear the little boys shouting it through the streets.
We can see it in poetry, after the new-fashioned
Hiawathan style. Blow it jingles! And then
there would be another biography for the Banner,
embodying all the Penitentiary correspondence, his
lecture upon the present system of prison labor,
ic, &c. What an age we live in! Who can tell
what a day or an hour may bring forth!
Our neighbors of the OazttU arc exceedingly
anxious to get up a controversy with some one on
the doctrines of the Catholic Church. Inasmuch
as the Uxiox aud Ameticah is a political and not
a sectarian journal, and as we shrewdly suspect
there is a good deal of the parson about the edi
tors of that paper, we cannot accept the glovo so
We find, however, in glancing over the Banner
for 1862, that two members of that paper were al
most entirely occupied with a defence of the
Catholic Church, written by AiicHBisHor Huchis.
The article is headed "The Catiiolic Chapter.
JH THE HlSTOET OF THE UhITED STATES,'' and
is highly laudatory of the patriotism of that
Church. Gen. Zolucoffeb published this ar
ticle with the following emphatic endorsement of
the patriotism of that Church. We suggest to
our neighbors to try Zollicoffer perhaps he
would disputo with them upon their grave theolog

exceedinnly fntermtinit and valuable historical

by BISHOP HUGHES. It will be concluded
"The detailed and comprehensive information
imparted, gives to this paper great value for the
general reader. Its spirit is unexceptionable,
breathing A HIGH AND PURE MORALITY,
in which PATRIOTISM and brotherly neighbor
ship are conspicuously inculcated. THE GE

SPECT TO RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, is lumi
nously pictured to the mind. The incidents of
this "Catholic Chapter" are so HALLOWED

DEAR TO PROTESTANTS, that a perusal
of the paper must promote charity, allay unreason

The Patriot of Saturday discloses the not very
astonishing fact that Messrs Nelsoh and Brieic,
were but the second choice for State electoral ticket,
of the Know Nothing Convention.
In a complimentary notice of Ex-Gov. Neil S.

on him by the State Convention, he felt constrain

Hoaxed. The purported prcqgodinga of a lata
democratic meeting in Van Buren county, publish
ed in our paper, were fictitious: in brief, some
graceless scamp hoaxed us. A friend at Spencer
informs us of the fact, and asks us to send him the
manuscript, that the authors may be exposed.
There seems to be an epidemic disposition to
play off such tricks by the Know Nothing. We
have foiled many attempts recently. Bat proceed
ings of public mertings are published so entirely as
matters of course, that we hardly look at them,
and never read them until in type. To prevent
such things hereafter, we must ask our friends to
get some one with whose hand-writing we are
familiar to enclose such documents to us.

an accident occurred in,' the Hiwassce Copper

of one man and severe injury to another. It ap

Tuscumbia, has received an appointment on the
same route. Salary $800..
Wheat. The Athens Post savs: As far as wc
have had an opportunity of observing, the grow
ing wheat looks very well; and we think the'ap
prehension that it had been seriously injured by
the severe winter was premature.
Tho same paper gives a table showing the num
ber of bushels of wheat shipped over the Hast
Tennessee and Georgia Railroad of the last year's
haviest, up to the last of February.. The total foots
up at four hundred and twenty-four thousand five
hundred and sixteen bushels. A portion of this
was sold at $1 50 per bushel, while none waa sold
at less that 81 amounting to more than half a
million of dollars in the aggregate. In addition
to the wheat shipped, it is estimated that between
one and two hundred thousand bushels have been
manufactured' into flour and exported. In 1850
one hundred thousand bushels, in grain and flour,
would have covered the amount exported from the
same counties. The increase in this single item
will serve to show what effect the railroad is hav
ing upon the agricultural interest of that section.
Firtm the KnoxciUi JiegitUr.
Ageicultubal. By the annexed official report,
it will be seen that the East Tennessee Agricul
tural Society, has united permanently with the
County Societies of East Tennessee in holding
the "Eastern Division Fair," and further that the
annual Fair has been permanently located at
Knoxvilie. We think, and there is no selfishness
in the thought, that the selection is the best that
could have been made. A more accessible point,
and at the same time, one affording better facili
ties for holding lhe Fairs, making preparation for
the accommodation of stock, &c, could not have
been found. The amalgamation of the Fairs, one
of which was already located at this place, will
have the effect of giving additional importance and
adding greater interest to the annual exhibitions,
inasmuch it will enable the Commissioners to ex-
tend and enlarge the Premium List, and prepare
better accommodations than they have heretofore
been able to provide. Uur people, of all nvocn
tions, should bear the Fair in mind, during the
summer, and prepare for a grand demonstration
next fall. We nave been requested to call tne at
tontion of our brethren of the press, in East Ten
nessee, to the proceedings found below:
In pursuance to previous notice, a number of
the delegates of the County Agricultural Societies
of East Tennessee, the Commissioners of the
EaBt Tennessee Agricultural Society, and the
Commissioners of the Eastern Division Fair, met
at the Agricultural omce in Knoxvilie, on Mon
day, April 21st, 1856, for the purpose of taking
into consiuernuon ine propriety 01 locating the
Ea3t Tennessee Division Fair and for other pur
W. G. Swan, Esq., in behalf of the East Ten
nessee oociety, proposed a union of the two organ
izations, which was agreed to by the delegates of
me county societies present, ana, thereupon, by
vote of the meeting, the amalgamation was effect
ed in accordance with the provisions of the
amended Agricultural act.
On motion of Dr. R. H. Hodsden, it was re
solved that the annual Fair of the societies thus
amalgamated, be held at or near Knoxvilie upon
such grounds as may hereafter be purchased for
CoL John Williams having tendered his resig
nation as President of the Fair, which was ac
cepted,Dr. R. H. Hodsden, of Sevier, was unani
mously elected to supply the vacancy. Col. Wil
liams was then elected Treasurer of the organi
zation, with power to receive and disburse the
funds of the same, upon tho order of the Commis
sioners. On motion, the President appointed Jno. Wil
liams, G.M. Hazen, and Maj. vVill. Swan, a com
mittee to purchase suitable Fair grounds.
On motion, it was ordered that the 1,000 ap
propriated by the 6th section of the amended act,
for the purchase of "movable fixtures" be us:d, in
accordance with said act, for the purchase of per
manent fixtures for tho Fair grounds.
It was further ordered that a roport of the pro
ceedings of this meetin? officially signed, be pub
lished in the Knoxvilie Register, with a request
that the papers of East Tennessee give publicity
to the same.

THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER CROSSED BV THE IRON
Davenport, Iowa, April 22 9, A. M.
When Gusar with his legions crossed the Rubi
con, which divides Cisalpine Gaul from Italy, be
was well aware of the greatness of the work ho
was engaged in; and although many attempted to
d.ssuade him from such an undertaking, yet noth
ing daunted he landed his army on the plains of
, . - 1 1 . 1 .3 1 i.j.j 1 - 1 1.1.
Italy, astonuuea me worm uy u ueoua uiu icii.
mankind an instance of bravery and enterprise
worthy of record.
We, too, however, have crossed the "Rubicon"
tha great "Father of Waters" which lor centu
ries has rolled on into tho bosom of the mighty
ocean without a pier to mar its progress. To-day
has the mighty deed been accomplished at which
the world ha3 so often smiled in derision. Yes,
the Mississippi is practically no more. It is span
ned by the mighty artery of commerce and enter
prisethe railroad. Science has stretched its arm
across the ever-flowing Mississippi and along its
finely-knit muscles has the "irou horse" bouuded
with a heavy snort as it scents from afar the slug
glish waters ot the Missouri. The' mission of C:e
sar of old was to conquer; so is that of C3ar of
the nineteenth century: but the litter is ono of
peace and plenty. The ''war horse" of civilization
may have fiery nostrils, but it has also an olive
branch, the seeds from which it scatters as it flies.
That such an event should have occurred with
out an assemblage of spectators from all quarters
ot the globe to witness it, is only another instance
of the mighty progress which has been made with
in the last titty years in the science of bridge build
ing. As we approached Rock Island, there were
rumors afloat that we would cross to Iowa on the
new bridge. "Cross the Mississippi on a bridge 1"
cried an intelligent looking gentleman. "On, a
bridge?" simpered a feminine voice from a young
lady to her parents, bound for Council Bluffi;"why,
Pa,"I thought the Mississippi was a great river
larger than the Hudson?"
ao silently had this work progressed, that while
half the world has been asleep, genius has been
spanning the mightest river on the globe, and con
necting two as magnificent sections of territory as
the sun ever shone on.
Swiftly we sped along" the iron track Rock Is
land appeared in sight the whistle sounded, and
the conductor cried out, "Passengers for Iowa keep
their seals." There was a pause a hush as it
wore, preparatory to the fierceness of a tornado.
The cars moved on the bridge was reached
"We're on the bridge see the mighty Missis iippi
rolling on beneath" and all eyes were fastened on
the' mighty parapets of the magnificent bridge,
over which we glided in solemn silence. A few
minutes nnd the suspended breath was let loose.
"We're over!" wasthecry, "we have crossed the
Mississippi m a railroad car.
The National Intelligencer rejoices over the
lite action of the old line whigs of Kentucky, eulo
gizes the whig party, and urges its resuscitation,
"We repeat, then, that we heartily approve ths
spirit and object of the movement commenced by
the whigs of Kentucky, and indulge the hope that
it will meet with a response from all who cherish
kindred sentiments. Meanwhile, for ourselves, we
can only say to the 'old line whiga' whom it may be
our honor to address, that it still seems expedieat
to us that the whig party should preserve its dis
tinct organization, and, as we have heretofore had
occesion to suggest, abide its proper time tor mak
ing the weight of its influence felt in that decision
which dutv and patriotism shall call upon it to take
in the present conjuncture of political events."
