I'OMTHIAI. THICKS W1TU U'OKUS.
Many years ago, a distinguished crimi
nal lawyer of thisi State, whose reputation
was national, secured a verdict of acquittal
for a client, by air artiGce..' The stpry is
extant in choice Southwestern, how Felix
tlrundy procured the printing of an alma
nac altered in ita' weather notes, which he
adroitly substituted for the courlhonso
copy at tho clerk's desk, and how the
melerological testimony of tho new alma
nac completely overthrew the main fe.T
turo in the evidence for the prosecution,
and brought a felon oil' in triumph over
the law; In the rough primitive time
fifty years ago or more iwhen this Btrata
gem was carried through, it was consu
ered a clever performance, and is told t
the credit of the ingenuity of that eminen
advocate. It was, however, nothing but
a fetch a tricl.exciwablej jfcrhaps, in the,'
state of society as it then existed, but nolh
ing more could be claimed for it, or said it
It has a modern imitation which is not
entitled to .the same jiraise. fur its clcVer
ness, and has no palliation. Readers of,
'the celebrated debate between Calhoun
jand Daniel Webster in 1833, upon the,
.philosophy of Ilia -Anierican'ByBtenvof'goV'
ernment, will remember the important
part played. by th 'words, CanslUution,'c(Bi

editions down to that issued in 1SGS, con
'taincd deGnitions of Ihoae words which met
,tho acceptance of philologists and Iexicog'
.raphers generally, and in their politic;!
signification were consonant with the re
ceived ideas of our peculiar system of gov
ernment. Neither Calhoun, Daniel Webste
or John Marshall would have altered them
That standard work and moi.ument
American eriiditicn, however, has received
a Kadical overhauling, and for some pnr-
loso probibly to adapt it to the doa
trincfi of tho dominant party Noah Web
stor's definitions have been cooked and
modified. Wo arc indebted to a conlempo
rarv for the following extracts from the
editions of 1857 and 18G3, contrasting the
old definitions with tho new-fangled, iiioU
crn-light interprets.liona :
" Constitution. L The establishex
form of covcrnment in a State, kingdom
or country; a system of fundamental rules,
principles and ordinances, lor the govern
ment of a Slate or nation. In free States
the Constitution is paramount lo the slat
ules or laws enacted by the Legislature,
limiting and controlling ita power; and in
in the United btat the legislature is ere
ated and its powers designated by the Can
Btitntion." (Kdition of lSbl.)
"uonsitution. o. lne principles or
fundamental laws which govern a State or
other organized body of men, and are em
bodied in written documents, or implied in
the institutions and usages of the country
or pocioty, organic law." (iulition of 18GS.
"CoNanESri. 1. Tho Assembly of Sena
tors and Ileprescntativea of the United
States of America, according so the present
Constitution orivolitical compact, by which
they arc united in a Federal republic; the
legislature of the United States consisting
of two houses, a Senate and a House of
Kepresentatives." (trillion or 1807.)
"Congress. 5. The Assemblv of Sena
tors and Representatives of tho people of a
nation, especially oia republic, for the pur
poso of cnaclintr laws, and considering mat
tern of national interest, and conslituling
tbo chief legislative body of the nation."
(Edition of 1808.)
"COMPACT An agreement; a contract
between parties ; a word that may be ap
plied, in a general sense, to any contract or
covenant between individuals, but is more
generally applied ta agreements, between
nations and States, as treaties and confed
erations. So the Constitution of the
United Slates is a political contract be
tween the Mates; a national compart.
( Edition of 1857.)
ComtAct An agreement between par
lies: a covenant or contract, either ol in
dividuals or nations." (hdilion ol loos.)
Tho alterations hero presented are essen
tial and readily perceived. The dGuilion, of
Gmxtitution in 18GS is as loose and latitudi
narian as thepracticecf tliolastlbreo or four
last Congresses in its application. It is not
now an "established form," a " system,"
paramount" in its operation, and " lini
fling ahd controling" power. It is con
verged into " the principles or fundamen
tal laws," writton "or implictl.in uulitu-
linn and tiuigct of the country." In lSii7.
it was an instrument every .word of which
waa weighed, and conveyed exact and ex-
irerts meanings, and whoe sense was not
to ha deviated from in cotntrtiction. In
18GS, it may be made to mean anything
but "the mages of tho country" as con
trolled by a majorily of Congresi, may
mply a schedule of inforrcd powers "as
iroad and casing as the yncraLair." Like
ibertii-s have been taken in the other
instances cited. Goim" hit undergone
mKrtnnl modifications. Indeed, of-old
Noah's precise description of what the
Congress is a Senate and House of Uej
rwentatives composing the JegbU.ilivede-
larlmcnt of a "ftderat' republic, it has
grown into" the chief .legislativu body of
tho ruilion" which may not only make
aws, but "considVr matters 'of
ntttianal interest," and do all and
general, whatever scometh to itself
good, "or implied in the institution
and usages, etc.," and so, also, Willi cuwpa.
Mr. Calhoun's definition as given In the
former cditio rs of the dictionary, vii: that,.
signified "a treaty between Stales," is
carefully omitted, and the term "confeder
ation" Is cast out as .if it iiinclt of treason, or
carried the plague. It m now restricted to
"a covenant between nations."
Tho hand that has assumed to amend
Webster's text, was doubtless trained in
tho tenets of the Radical school of politics,
and has soughf to give dictionary authority
for the wild license of his teacners, arm ino

From tbo Dal ti more Sun, Aug. 20.
We gave yesterday an account of the
eminently paciuc aim luruuanng apirn
. i - I r
manifested by the recent largo- Conserva
tive convention in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In iialnful contrast to this spirit Ts that. ex
hibited by the .North Carolina Legislature
in tbo passage of a menacing and despotic
military system under the mild and decep
tive name of a ''police bill," which author
izes the raising of nn unlimited militia at
any time that the Governor thinks proper.
During the consideration of the hill vari
ous amendments were offered to ameliorate
its objectionable features, but werc all voted
down. It was sought by one amendment
to authorize the Governor lo call out the
force at the reauest of tho Sheriff and five
Justices of the l'eace in a county, nut tins
was lost. An amendment lo elect company
officers by the rank and file and field offi
cers by the company officers, an amendment
forbidding any organized body of militia
to approach within a quarter of a mile of
the polls alter tlie election, unless in
case of actual riot' and an amendment to
limit the operation of tho bill to nix
months, were all lost. The Governor bas
thus the appointment of all tneothcers and
be absolute control of the intiitia, who are
disposable lo overawe electors at the ballot-
box. Tho fuil significance of this leglsla- I
lion can only be judged of by .the time and
circumstances under which it is adopted,
uio antagonistic aiuiuuu ui races wuicn
Radicalism in the South Is endeavoring to
create, and the use which can be made of
una Hiiuiia w iiiiiiiuu.Hc vuiera uy uio
presonce of an armed force at the places of
1 ..r TI.. titr.r .r,L. . I
election. The chief peril of the measure
arises from theso circumstance?, and from
the animus of the party which will have
iri its hands this potent enginery of lyranny
aud bloodshed. That animus may be in
ferred Irom me loiiowing specimen para
graph published in tho leading organ of
tho JN or Hi Carolina itadicals, the Kaleigh
Stiituuml, of lastiaturUay :
"Wo tellyoii decrepid, back-broken old
Rebels lhat your days are numbered. We
aro willing that you should gasp a little,
and therefore look on your feeble efforts to
rise from your backs with pity and compas
sion, imi attempt to rise nignerinan your
kneesr or to-ascuine- any.otlier attitude than
that of prayer, and you will be thrust back
to the earth, never to rise again."
In Tennessee the same demoniac spirit
seems lo continue in tho ascendant. On
tho 1 -1 tli inst., notwithstanding the pacific
overture of tlie ex-Confederate Generals
in Ten n esse, a bill was introduced in the
ower house of the Legislature giving the
Governor of lhat State fpowcr to declare
martial law, to send the militia to .any
county at his .pleasure, and lo levy on
counties where troops' are stationed for
their support. Thus it seems that under
the watchword "Let us have peace," ex-
iremo war measeres are resorted to at a
time when only moderation is needed, the
object in both cases seeming to be either to
control lhe Presidential election hy direct
interference at the ballot-box, or to stir up
strife and tumult, so as to make political
capital for their party friends in the

There is no sadder picture in he blood
written history of Tennessee than that pro-
sented at this lime. Willi all lhe .natural
strength and wealth of a nation in itself,
and an almost tropical beauty and richness
of scenery, thero is no snot on earth more

its growth in prosperous days; who have
built up all that is great and good within
it, and who ask fur no better heritage than
a quiet grave beneath its peaceful skies
are forced to flee lo other lands for the pro
tection they cannot receive at home, there
is little hope for liberty there.
This is "lhe situation in lenneee, and
we are assured the picture is notoverdrawn.

and the vultures and buzzards are holding

where they will probably remain. They
had been a little more than three weeks on

Achievement Expected of Htm l&
From tho New York Sun, August 2i
Mr. Robert Bonner seems destined not
merely td enjoy the satisfaction of owning
the most notable stable in the world, bat,
in his declining years, which are yet a long
way off will be ihle proudly to examine
that, without the taint of gambling, or the
excitement of racing, he has brought that
noble anjpialj the horse, to a higher slate b
perfection, and has produced lrom lum
greater achievements than the most con
firmed devotee of lhe race track had' ever
previously dreamed of.
A few days ago, that most remarkable
horse, Dexter, of Mr. Bonner's stable, at
lhe Fashion Course, on Long- Island, in the
presence of credible witnesses, trotted a
tnile in the unprecedented, lime of two
kiinutes aud fourteen istjconds, and on yes
terday trotted ono-quarter of a mile in
thirty ;econdsj or at the rate of one mile in
two minutes, equal to fast railway time.
. It Ts well-known that Mr. Bonner Is not
h racing man, and although he owns several
p the fastest trotters in the. world, and. buys
every really fast horse he hears ofj he, never
auows any oi ins animais to trot ior money,
'or in any race. He buys and' kebps them
for his own amusement and satisfaction.
, Jn June last he sent Dexter over to the
Fashion Course, to the-stables of Mr. Wm,
II. Doble, with instructions to Mr. Dobie
d ascertain what the borso was capable 'of
performing. -Mr. uouie at once put lue
animal in easy raining, designing to work
him down to a Irinr ror speed some lime in
the fall. No special pains- were taken, as
thero was ample time to accomplish the
training gradually, thus avoiding any pos
sible charge of cruel treatment. Twice
each week be was put on the track and
jogged around five or Bir times, only occa
sionally being "speeded," and then merely
for a short distance, with no record of time.
On Tit her days all his- work has been done
jon thb road, he being driven' daily at a jog
trot, from six to eight miles. His feed, baa
consisted of from ten to twelve- quarts of
gram daily, and as much hay as he would
;eat. His trainer remarked to riurreporler
that ho waa a good feeder on grain, but did
not care much for hay. This exerqiso and
feed, with the usual rubbing and care, in
covering, bedding', etc., has constituted his
training, tho design being lq Work him
'down a little more vigorously as the season
advanced and tho weather hecamo more
Suitable for earnest exercise.
On Monday morning of last week Dexter
was taken out for his morning exercise on
the track. Tho previous day and
jevening had been stormy, and the track
was in anything but a good condition. In
deed, it wa3 quito heavy, and in places bq
wet along the pole as to compel driving on
the offor outside. The horse, under these
disadvantages, after being jogged around
'once or twice, w.n put to his speed, and
made tho heat in 51-20, with his. hood on
Several gentlemeu being present, expressed
a desire to see hint pressed a little, and Mr.
Doble finally consented. Tlie horse was
taken of to a stable, scraped, rubbed oil',
and in twenty-five minutes was again on
the track, with Build Doble as driver. A
running horse was also provided, with a
rider, .and stationed at the three-quarter
pole to make the round with the trotter.
Mr. Turubull, tho wdll-known turfman
of this city, owner of the celebrated horso
Vanderbilt, and Mr. Conway, of Philadel
phia, took tho judges' stand to watch tho
performance and keep the time. Every
thing being ready, Dexter was slowly trot
ted around the track once. The
second time about he was gradually worked
up and pressed, until, on approaching tho
three-quarter pole, he was fairly flying. A
this point the running horse joined in at
an incitement to the trotter. With thW
impetus added to his natural ambition,and
the steady careful driving of Budd the
wonderful animal came down to his work
in a manner that surprised even those that
knew him best aud had reason to expect
great things from him. Coming down the
home stretch his speed waa like a locomo
tive with steam crowded. The running
horse was urged to his utmost to keep up
with him. As he passed the judge's stand
the time of the first quarter was noted at
thirty-three and a half seconds, which h.od
been performed without a particle of urg
ing. Away he Hew again on the first quar
ter, a simple word of encouragement from
Ins driver Only urging him forward, whilcr
the rider or the other horse was shouting
and plying tlio whip yigoroudy tot keep up
with this most astonishing pace. At this
rale the quarter pole was passed in thirty
three and a half seconds. The next quar
ter, on the back stretch, wa-r made in thirty
three seconds, this part of the track being
in better condition than the rest. At tins
tremendous pace tho animal showed not
tlie slightest inclination to break ; indeed,
throughout ho kepthis-feet as steadily as
if he knew of no other jjait than an ordi
nary trot. From the half-mile pole to the
starting point at lhe fhrec-qnarter pole he
accomplished in thirty-four Seconds, the
track being very heavy, on the curve
driving him la tlie far side, making a dif.
ference of more than a hundred feet in the
diitance lo be traveled. He, thus made
the mile in two minutes and fourteen sec
pnds a rate nf speed' altogether unap
proached hi the annals of trotting.
After Viassihg the' three-quarter pole,
which completed Ida heat of one mile,
'Dexter" continued on to the jo'tlges' stand
without any apparent abatement of speed,
and was not brought down until he had
nearly reached the quarter pole. He witf
then taken to the stable, exhibiting not the
slightest symptom? of distress. He ha?
ever since appeared in bis usual health,'
and with spirits only heightened by the
exciting and wonderful performance.
But even this most surprising achieve
ment is not the best of this remarkable
horse. Yesterday he was on the track
taking hisnsnal exercise, being leisurely
driven around, and occasionally pnt Ui
speed for a short spirit, when lie made a
quarter mile down the hack stretch in lhe
almost incredible time of thirty seconds, at
,lt the rate o f One mile m two mmwto r
Mr. Doble says DSxter is now in no trim
for extraordinary speed. Nor is be in a
lurry to get Inm In such trim, tiat lie
says the animal has abilities that have
never lmon suspected, and this fall he will
make time that will as much eclipse his
rate performance, as that eclipsed his" per
formance at lluflalo la.it snramer, when lie
in 2.17, lieating Ffora
Temple's 2:15 at Kalamazoo. Mich., which
had previously been the best time- ever
made by a trotting horse.
llesides this wonderful animal, Mr.
Doble has some very excellent stock in his
stables. Ainone them a fine stallion, Mem-
