Vhw Claims for tbe su ceaatan will
tbe Tenmeawee Democracy 1
From an aricle in the Union and American
of Sunday, we are inclined to suspect it pref
erences lean towards the present imbecile oc
cupant of the Presidential Chair. So tame and
spiritless had been the conduct of public af
fair nnder the present Administration, so en
tirely inefficient for good, bo utterly powerless
to combat evil had it proven itself that one
year ago it was only here and there over the
country, amot.g even the very presses who had
been instrumental in elevating it into wer,
that one could be found bold iuoogh n lift a
pen in its defence, or sound a note of approval
in it behalf. Within a twelvemonth rtf'rcrits
giddy elevation upon the head-wave of an un
precedented popular majority, the tide had
ebbbd and left it a stranded wreck an eye
sore to its friends, and a mark for the jeers and
mockery of the world.
Its waxen wings were melted, and the pres
tige of popularity and success which surround
ded its incom ug, was soon swallowed up in
the sea of disappointment which its owu egre
gious blunders had created in the public mind.
There wa nothing in the previous history
of Franklin Pierce, an obscure lawyer and
politician of ew Hampshire nothing which
the country knew or his abilities which was
calculated to inspire confidence in him as a
I statesman yet, by a singular combination of
circumstances, 60 overwhelming had been his
mr.jority, that even those who had opMsed
him, were almost ready to believe they had
committed an error in so doing, and were al
most willing to regard his advent into power
as an era of good feeling. The opositin,
conscious ot the error they had made iu placing
before the country a candidate who ha 1 an
odor of sectionalism about him, felt inclined to
regard Mr. Pierce's election as a triumph of
nationalism over sectionalism not that the
gre;it body of that opposition were sectional in
their views, or that tLegre-tt hero-patriot who
was their candidate, was less worthy of the
national confidence than his cometitor but
that the circumstances which surrounded him
r...wi;nA,i i.;- ,
4 .11" a fresh demand on our surplus millions. Thetwen-
that Gen. Pierce had been elected on the ty-uinth parallel would throw into the United States
ground that he was asounder compromise man Jtwo-thiids of the Mtxi.-au Sute of S. mora and two
than Gon. Scott, and would be less likolv tol?,lha of Chihuahua, with population enough to
lead, or permit fanatics and demagogues to
lead the oountry into sectional difficulties.
After the bitter feelings which the contest
had engendered had subsided, and ere General
Pierce had assumed the seals of office, the
whole body of the American people were re
conciled, and all were glad that although a
great chieftain who deserved well of his coun
try for his valor and patriotism exhibited on
the battle fields of half a century had failed to
receive that high mark of the nation's grati
tude which many t hought he merited yet the
compromise measures of 1850 had received the
sanction of the people. All thought that as
the edict which had spoken the new adminis
tration into existence was a voice from the
depths of the great popular heart, demanding
peace and rest from the discussion and distrac
tion of the slavery question, that obedience to
that voice would be the greatj principle of its
actioQ. Alas, how sadly were they disappoint
ed. How short-lived were their hopes. How
quickly were the prospects of peace dissipated.
Had some sagacious seer on the 4th March,
18G3, foretold tho present condition of the
country, brought about by the conduct of the
adminihtration had he pointed out the crimi
nal blunders, startling in their number and
enormity, which has been crowded into the
short space of less than three years, he would
have been declared a madman or a fool.
Elected as the very embodiment and incar
nation of the Compromise feeling, his first act
was the appointment to the most lucrative and
important offices in the government, men who
had been the fiercest opponents of those meas-
ires. From among Northern Ab-Witionists

the progress of the revolution interrupted the pro

which et conj'cture all agng lo ascertain the prrcite

by selling to us the Danish West India Island of
St. Thomas, the price of which, five millions of dol

freeing us of the Sound Dues. St. Thomas is a
small inland to the windward of Porto Rico, with a
population of seven thousand souls. Ri'ht near to
it is another small island called Santa Cruz, also
owned by Denmark, with thirty two thousand in
habitants. For five millions of dallars we ought to
get both of them. But St. Thomas is of much im
portance from its geographical position, which is
such as would render it a formidable position in
the hands of a naval power. It has a fine harbor,
and is always first sought by vessels in distress
coining from seaward. Were it in our possession

difficult oi digestion. Is it not so, tny young friend?'
'tty no means. Elder quite the contrary, and the
reason is obvious. Observe, hIJer, it is cut into
the most minute particle?; hence it naturully follows
that being, as it were, completely calcined before it
enters the system, it leaves, so to speak, no labor
to be performed bv the di estive org ins, and it is

'Nevertheless, I believe it to be exceedingly in
talubrious, and detrimental to the system. Is not
shatits nature, my young friend?'

Lieut John N. MafBit, whoha3 been ao much at
sea that he can hardly claim any other locality aa
bis home, but who also belongs more to thia town
than to any other, has been reatored to his command
ou the Coast Survey and it is gail in the most
complimentary manner of the Han. Secretary. Why
be was removed ia a mystery, unless the suppof
lion tli.it we have seen be true, that there wan a
personal hostility in the Uoani to those olli.-ers,
such as Maury, Maftkt and others, who have dis
tinguished themselves in the collateral or scientiiic
duties of the r profession The members of the
Board are suspected of having envied the excellence
to which they coul l not attain. In Lieut. M.ittitt's
case, it is said that M.ij B it-he, the disiinoui-hed
officer, and head of the Coast Survey, which has
given our country so much reputation all over tbe
the world, interposed nmst earnestly to have Lieut,
ila IS tt restored, as one whose services had not only
been indvaluable heretofore, but were indispensable
Among many other works prepared by Lieut.
MstKtt on the Coant Survey Service, are his Surveys
and Chsrta of Beaufort llirbor, Cttpe ilatteras
Cape Fear Bar and River, Cape Lookout, Charles ,
ton Harbor, Beaufort, S. C , at.d Savannah river,
These are works of undoubted authority, and upon
thone ot Cape Fear and Charleston are entirely
based the important workr notr going on for tiie
improvement of the hurbors of Wilininjiton and
Charleston, liis surveys ol Beaufort Harbor set
tied ail doubts of the great eap icity and value of
that, as one of the very best harbors fu the South
or in the county.
The condemnation of Lieut. Maffut by th Board
is U'id.'rstood to have done him much Service, in-
i asmuch as it has called fort'i tcHi.-oony conclusively
I showing that as an clhVer cud a genii, man he has
i no superior cave in rank
Ir i probable that rmcli outrages as the Bosrd
committed in the cases ot Sie'vurt, Maury, Maflifl,
Rolando and others, will induce the ensuing Con
i;res thoroughly to review its notion.

We present the Srst of this series of excellent tries, to
, be the veritable history of the er!y life of Aucs Gsav,
whose charming Magaiine Tales have so often added to the
, eru.yment of the domestic flr-ide, and alternately provoke
the merry laugh, or hronght th- tear of ympathy to the eye.
Be this as i may, in 'hi tale we have the authentic ao
! to bioirrxphv of a yomg tady, a resident of this9tate so
, sliihtiy conceale-' beneath the gause of Action, a to conceal
the actual personages from the ruri.ieity of the general pub
lic not so sun ciently concealed as to hide them from thoi
! who are acquainted w-th the authoress, er are cognisant of
. tbe scenes amidst hich she has been aa actress. Lav Hrus)
: is a simple, no-retting story if actual life, showing bow
much real romance exryts aniidnt the common place of every

lesi be greatly sought alter by those who admire books ef
tenderness and ferPntf, which appeal directly to the gentler
' emotions of the h- art.
Thie book wil! be a mnai suitable preeent to the ladies for
which it is more particularly written at the same time it

Among the many claims to superiority which thia work
has over all others if the kind are the following :
