- For some years past, the Southern branch of
tho Democratic Party hare held Mr. Sbwaed
op aa s sort of scare-crow, to frighten timid
Southern men.' Of all the enemies of Sotrthem
Institutions iu the North, he wa9 by them pro
nounced the most dangerous, -because he had a
jKJwerfnl influence over the niin9of the mass
es of anti-slavery men ontsiJe of the Abolition
organization. So frequently did they "play
upon this harp of a thousand strings," and so
loud and apparently earnest were the anathe
mas heaped upon the territle agitator, and all
who did not make war npon him, the im
pression became general in the touth that lie
was a man to be feared, and whosoever ac'ed
with him, a man to be suspected. Hut the
recent t-lection in New York proved all this to
have Wen a delusion, that Southern men had
been dreading a mere ehadow. Iu the canvass
preceding that election, Ifr. Seward was most
industriously engaged; his voice was heard on
every part of the field, urging on the forces of
the Mack Republicans, and if ho had been the
great leader, the agitator of wonderful ii.lla
ence and prowess that he had been thought to
bo, the time had come for him to prove it.

sectional party, as at present organized, bus not the
strength to elect a President of avowed Higher

most practical results.
The best he can do, under present circumFtinccs,
is to bring his forces to bear against the candidate
of the party that is most strongly pledged, by pro
fession and practice, to a strict constructioa of the
Constitution, and in support of the candidate of the
party that ridici les the doctrine of State Rights, as
an absurd and impracticable theory. Hence we may
reasonably conclude, that Seward will co operate
with the so called Americans in the coming election;
for we do not believe they could select a candidate

To speak of Seward as a dangerous man now,
is, as we have said, p reposterous ; but to say
that he will, in the coining election "of Presi

by all odds, the most ridiculous assertion that
the opposition to Americanism bus given birth
to. Seward haa been the most determined
enemy of Americanism, lie has never exhibi
ted the least disposition to tolerate it. He, and
Air. Pierce, and the Cabinet, have been loving
allies in the attempt to etitle the patriotio res
piration of the American Party, and to crush
the Party, as an unholy thing; and it is far
more probable that they will be still found in
active co-operation in the canvass for the Chief

Irg-cnd of tlic Infernal Pa.
BT L. V I 1 6 I H I A FIIICB,
At at sixty miles south of 9ar.ta Fe, in the mighty ranire
of he Nerra Blanca, there is a famous grrge, tomt fif een
mile through, called 'H Cinone Inferno,' or the Infernal
Pass, where rice stupendous mnjes of rock piled upon rock,
until t-.e traveler aee at the tp but a narrow strij of sky,
while around him all is involved in chu tic gloom." The
white ateed alluded to in the tradition, is still said to be seen
nesa that, notiihtanding the darir.g effort of thoae moat
teen brought within range of the lariat.
In the white man's tent, on the far frontier,
At the fall of the faded leaf,
Mid the pale-faced followers of the Seer,
Sat an eld Camanche chief ;
And the siffh of the wailing wind swept by,
Through the troubled Autumn sky.
They had pas-ed thro' the " Canone " wild that day,
And they noUd a solemn spdl.
As they entered the toilsome, darkling way,
O'er the red man's features fell,
for a sound came up through the ravines gray,
Like a wild steed's shrilly neigh.
The men leaped up at the thrilling sound,
For their toilin.' mules mjved slow;
But the chief cast a wary glance around,
And his guarded tone was low,
As he bade ttem haste, while the kindly sun,
Looked down in the gnges dun.
And then, when the evening camp was set.
And the hunters rest had found
When all in the deer-skin lodge bad met,
They asked of this mystic sound ;
And the chi-f, while bis bronied cheek grew pale.
Thus told them the fearful tale :
" Pale sons of the eaatei n ocean's foam,
'Twaa before your fathers came,
To take for th-ir own the red man's horns.
And to Rive his hills their name,
That the bol l Camanche held thii land
With a high and might) hand.
My nation dwelt on the prtirie-plain
Thfir wigwam fires shone bright ;
Their children played in the waving cane,
And the mothers hearts were 1'ght,
And the father's soul like the bended bow
On the hills of long ago.
In those old days bJ snake-like pass
That down through the mountain creeps,
Where grows the spotted and sunless grass,
Thut a dew of pobon weeps,
In a huge cave cleft of the rifted stone,
A stranger dwelt alone.
None knew the name of his father's race.
Or from what f..r larvl he came;
lie went not forth ou the hunter's chaae,
Or the warrior's path of fame.
But often the cavern ro keJ and rang
To a hammer's sounding clang.
lie roamed through the ravage glens that lie,
'.Mid the gitnt rocks up-piled,
AVhere a shining ore from the sun-god's eye,
Lies hid In the ravines wild;
An 1 the towering, misty shidowi form
The midnight's bellowing storm.
Like some tall tree do the waate alone,
Was hi stern and lofiy mien ;
It told of a power not yet o'erthrown.
And it tuited that desert-scene.
And his voice like a trumpet, seemed to roll.
From fathomless gulls of soaL
Ha loved a maid of my kinuly race.
And he sought her for his bride.
But the Red bird shrank from bis dark embrace,
And his den on tbe mountain side.
From his offered love she turned and fled.
For her heart grew sick with dread.
Her sire looked on with a knitted brow.
Full scornfully he smiled,
And said, 'ghall the cawing, carrion crow.
Be mate for the eagle's child'
In our eyrie fallen, we know not whence
Let the children drive him hence ! '
But a vengeance-vow on the wind had pacsed
A flame on the night had shone,
And the hoofs of a snow white steed struck fast
On the mountain pathway lone,
And they any that tteed from the cavern won
Was the MacniMTo's son 1
His neigh to the wind rose wild aud high,
( Thou rider bold, take heed.)
With the stag's fleet foot he bounded by,
That beautiful demon-steed !
But the gl.-ire of his eye the soul had shook,
Wi.h its terrible hunum look !
The camp was roued at the break of day,
F.y a frantic shriek upVirne
On the passing wings of the dawning gray,
Thro'igh the silent hush of morn.
And the warriors armed them for the tight
By the morning star's pale light.
Away ! away ! 'til the demon steed.
And his trampling shakos the grove
Afar ! af.ir I at a fearful speed
The night hawk bears the dove '
But the rag'.e brood are on his route.
With a fierce, triumphant St. out.
O'er hill, o'er vale, for many a mile,
By a hundred braves punned.
The steed and rider fled Uie while.
With a courage unsubdued,
The maiden's friends may toil and strain.
But the dark-mouthed pas they gain.
The rider here at his utmost need,
When the go1 was almoal won,
11 alf -cheeked in mid earrer, bis (teed
BtiU steadily bounding on ;
And shook his sp ar at his gathering foes.
That over the summit rose.
An arrowy flight on the darkened air !
A ahriek, and a fearfal bound,
Th dart thrilled deep la her bosom fair.
And the Ked-bird fell ! Around
Her lover the fire-darts full like rain.
The priac he may nut regain.
For the steed Hashed on aa that flin'y floor
Dad been hcil strewn with flower, "

Around In burning shower;
Away t away ! from hi s ifllng breath.

From his neighing wild, and loud.

And softly her maiden gracw.

Where bright o'er her boaoa the wild rose springs,
And the wood-dove nta and sings.

where tbe facts would not warrant such. It would
be very different where an intelligent mad was ap
pointed by the Governor to perform this duty. In
a few years the State would have 1 25,000,000 in

Sir. Tipton said he had not supposed there would
be any opposition to the bill. Tbe commissioner
had to go to (be Presidents and other officers of
railroad companies for the information which he
reported to the Governor, ' and if they hitcflded to
deft aud the State, they could more easily mislead
the commissioner thn ; they could bribe an engi
neer, w ho had not only a moral but a professional
reputation at stake. He was willing to trut the
Presidents and other officers of railroad companies,
because he bclived they were honest men, and
would not, on oath, represent the works on their
roads unfairly. He though no man would deny
that engineers were belter qualified to jude of and

ought to be the duty of the commissioner to look

that the interest of the Slate would be protected.
The sharpers in Wall Street (New Yoik) were
watchitiir us closely, aud were ready to take any
j advantage that would injure the credit of the
State; and not having an officer to watch these in
terest might cause the State to lose much more
Mr. Hat ton said he had the arguments of Mr.
Brown and Mr. Wood, and they gave no reason
why the bill should not pass. Tho argument of
Mr. Brown was in favor of creating an office
not yet known in the legislation of this State, and
be was in favor of creating such an office. There
were potent reasons why the State should an officer
to look after the sale of her bonds, in order to see
that her credit did not suffer thereby. But the
question before the the House is: Are the services
of a Railroad Commissioner necessary? If so, then
the law creating that office ought not to be disturb
ed, but if the Si ne did not need his services, then
the bill before the house oubt to pass. He stated
j that he beeu informed that that officer was not en-
; gaiied in the discharged the dutiesof bis office more
; than one-twentieth part of bis time, aud if he had
j been misinformed, he desired te be corrected. He
. hud no objection to urge against the manner in
which the commissioner had discharged his du'.ies
! he had heard of no complaints on that score but
the olhce was a sinecure it wss giving the large
salary of 2,000 and requiring the performance of
but little service. He said if these facts a e cor
rect, there is scarely any neccesity for a Railroad
Commissioner. Tbe duty, as he understood it
w is perlormed by simply passing over ami looked
at the road no carelul inspection is made, such us
a practical engineer would make and the com
missioner then reports to the Governor, and upon
that report the Bonds are issued,
It had been urged a,' tinst the passege this bill
that under the law previous to the creation of the
oHio of Commissioner, the Governor would appoint
a large number of engineers to inspect work on
roads. Suppose the Governor shonld appoint ten
or more, they would all be selected because they
were competent and honest sensible and ilUeriiuU
nnting men would bo selected, anv thus instead
cf having one all the year at a largo salary,
w.i wim. Id have a man when bis service were
needed, and the State woud bo the gainer by
it. Before the creation of tho commissioner, we
got along very well the State lost nothing, and
ber interests were equally as well guided as at
present, and he bud no doubt that law would meet
the present wants and requirement of the Slate
fully iu every pariicalar.
Pending the farther consideration of the bill. Tho
House ailjourned to 2 o'clock, P. M.

tesolution in addition to, and explanatory of Senate
resolution appointing Commissioners to examine in

Brauches. The rule was suspended aud the resolu
Railroad Cotnmitnoner. The IIou9e then re
sumed the consideration of the bill to repeai all
laws creating tbe office of Railroad Commissioner.
Mr. Dutiuington said tbe duties devolving upon
the commissioner were much greater than the gen
tleman from Wilson (Mr. Uatton) had been led to
believe. He could state from his own knowledge
that the commissioner had devoted at least one
fourth of tbe year in tbe actual discharge of the
duties of bis office, and perhaps as mucli as one
third. He said members should recollect that our
s stem of internal improvements was jti"t going
Into operation when the commissioner was first ap
pointed, and hence it has not required more of his
time than stated; but the system is growing with
great rapidity and will soon require the whole of
He said he ws opposed to the passage of the
bill before the House. The law nude it the duty
of the commissioner to report upon all the require
ments imposed by law upon the various companies
availing themselves of the aid of the State, much
of which it was not the duty of engineers to report
upon. The State has no other officer whose duty
it is to watch over her railroad interests, and to rer
quire companies to comply with the requisition of
the law. The commissioner studies the laws bear
ing upon railroad companies, and i, therefore, bet-
ter qualified to decide upon points involved, than
;au engineer or any other man whoso duties do not
rtei'i:- bun to thus qualify himself. He thought
the itiierer's of the State would be subserved by
coiiti'ui'ig the commissioner.

We present the first of this series of excellent tones, to
be the veritai.le hiatory of the early life of Auci Guar,
whose charm in Matiaxine Tale have so often added to the .
enjoymentt of the domestic fireside, and alternately provoke
the merry laugh, or r ro'ight the tear of ympathy to the eye.
Be this as it may, in th s tale we have the authentic au
to biography of a jo :ng lady, a resident of this State so
slinhtly concealed beneath the xauae of fiction, a to conceal
the actual person, a from the curiosity of the general pub
lic not so sutfeient'y concealed a to hide them from those
who are acquainted w th the authored, or are cognizant of
the scene amidst which she has been an actress. Lav Hcsoa
is a imjle, nt. retirg story tf actual life, showing bow
much real romance cuts amidst the common place of ev ry
day afTiirs. It is a beautifully written book, and will doubt
less be greatly sought alter by those who admire books ef
tenderness and lee 1 in, wbich appeal directly to the gentler
emotions of the heart.
This book will be a most suitable present to the ladies for
which it Is more particularly written at the same time it
but be read with profit by persons of all age aad both
