Dir. Buchanan no longer a Plat-
... - form, loosens hi Tongue.
' Oa the 23th ult., the pnpils of Frank.
Jiu and Marshal College, Ta., we learn
from the Lancaster Exyress, paid Mr. Bu
chanan a visit at Wheatland." There were
about two hundred of them. The young
sters were presented to the President elect
by Rev. E. V. Gerhart, President of the
College, and one of them delivered an ad
dress congratulating him upon his election.
Mr. Buchanan replied we must say in a
neat and very appropriate manner. He
giro the boys some wholesome advice,
which, if taken advantage of, will prove of
rood service to them. For instance he
The r was not a voting among Iherp, however
tumble tut position, who might not aspire, with an
honorable ambition to fill the highest office within
the L'ift of the people, but, in order to attain to po
aitiooi of honor and uofcluine) and distinction, they'
must remeiiibvr that everything depends upon
themselves. They must carve out their future
from tiie opportunities of the present. Kind par.
ents and friends have afforded them rare oppor
tuuiiits of acquiring that knowledge which costi
tutu? power. If they neglect or abase these op
portunities K toe; idle away the golden hours al
lottad for the improvement of mind if they are
not obedient to their professors, in all that relates
to the good interest and success of the institutiona-
then, they might be assured, they would have
canse to repent of their folly through long hours of
sartow in alter life; for they couM never retrieve
the pact. Mr. Buchanan said ha bad been a college
boy himself, and none of the best of boys, either.
being fond of fun, like thomselvee. There were
many little eccentricities in the life of a college
tudent that might be pardoned or overlooked; but
there was one habit which if formed at college or
in early youth, would cling to them through after
life and Might the fairest procpects. He referred to
ta-o use of intoxicating liquors, and declared it
would be better for that youth who contracted an
appetite for strong drink, that he were dead or had
never been born; for when he saw a young man en
tering upon such a career, a fondness of liqaor bes
coming with him a governing passion, be could see
nottiug be'nre him but a lite of sorrow and a dis
honored piiT I i his old age. Many lads, he was
aware, considered this practice a mark of smart
cess, but he regarded it as an offence that cannot
be pardoned, especially in a student at college; and
he concluded this earnest appeal by expressing the
hope and belief that none of the young men of
l-raukiia and Marshall were addicted to this danger
oos practice. The speaker then alluded to the
coarse and habits of study necessary to enaare sue
cess in a Etudcut'a life. Uanv young men prided
themselves in running over a great many books
and gaining a luperbcml knowledge of many branch
es of science. Thin was of no practical use. lie
would ure them to lm thoroughly all they on
dertook to learn to acquire knowledge distinctly
and then they would be able to use it to some
practical advantage in after life. They should p
ply themselves with diligence to their allotted stiu
die by day, reflect at night upon what they bad
thus acquired, and appropriate it as their best capi-
tal with which to engage in the straggles of life, lie
lad met with many men of prominence who had
looked at the indexes of a great many books, and
had a general smattering of knowledge, but it was
all surface work, and of no practical use. lie hop
ed his young friends here present would avoid fall
ing into tins error.
This is advice which the pupils of Frank
lin and Marshal college, and of all other
colleges and schools would do well to lay
to heart. We hope they will endeavor to
proGt by it. It is a pity that one so capa
ble of giving good advice, and understand
ing so thoroughly what sort of training is
necessary to the attainment of knowledge,
should have no little boys of his own to
"lick into shape," and start out in the path
to usefulness and eminence !
But Mr. Buchanan did more than give
the boys counsel. Turning gracefully to
the subject of his election, which had been
referred to, he concluded his remarks as
lie had been elected to the high and re-
sponsible olhce ot I resident, and he thanked
thein most fcincerelj for their congratulations;
out w tietber tne event wonld prove to be a
matter of congratulation time alone can de
termine. Without saying which party was
right or which was wrong, the fears of the
"lather of his cotiDtry" had at last been rea
liavd, and we now behold a sectional party
one portion of our Union arrayed in political
hostility agninst the other. The oljeet of his
administration would le to destroy any section
al party North or South and ha imonizt all
teotionsof the Union under a national and con
servative government, as it vasfj'ly years ago.
Unless this be done the time may ooine when
these aection&l animosities which now nnliap
pily exist may break up the fairest and most
perfect form of government the eun ever shone
opon. lint he trusted that the same Power
which had watched over and preserved us in
the past, will continue to smile npon us and
make us a prosperous, united and happy peo
ple. In conclusion, he said, that if he could
in any degree be the honored inetrntoeot tf
allayiug this sectional excitement and restor
ing the government to the principles and poli
cy of the fathers, he would then feel that he
had not assumed the arduous dutiwtt of the of
fice in vain.
It gives us pleasure to put these remarks
on record. They are evidence that not
withstanding Mr. Buchanan may have
sympathized with the secessionists and nul
liGers of the South ia 1850 that, notwith
standing the disunion sentiments of many
of his warmest supporters in the recent
canvass having been elected to preside
over the nation for four years, ho feels the
importance and responsibility of the great
trusts confided to him, and in his self-cora-rnunings
has determined to exert his influ
ence for the good of his country, and to
put down sectionalism. This is worthy of
any man's ambition. If, in the discharge
of his ofJQcIal duties, he shall exhibit a firm
adherence to this determination resisting
alike the importunities of friends and the
denunciations of euemics satisfying the
country that he is not the "facile" instru
ment he is believed to be by thousands of his
countrymen, he will merit and receive the
' approbation and support of roea of all par
ties who truly desire the perpetuation of
onr free institutions. But, if on the other
hand, he shall forget hi determination, and
follow iu the footsteps of Fraulliu Pierce, h
will deserve and receive the "contempt and
execratiou which will follow his immediate
predecessor into private life. We hope the
former, but apprehend the latter will be his
iiMtiiCAa Extsatagahci. A wedJiug in "one

On the 13th of Jnne, 1856, there were 25,
665 post offices, being an increase of 4,661 in
On the 13th of June there were in operation
nearly 8,000 mail routes, the total length of
whioli was estimated at 233,641: mile?, costing
6,035,474. These mail routes were divided
as follows: 22,323 miles of railroad; 14,951 of
steamboat; 50,453 coach, and nearly 154,000
inferior grades. The increase during the last
fiscal year was nearly 20,000 miles of rail
road; 832 of steamboat, 1,250 coBch, and 82,
000 inferior grades. In Nebraska and Kansas
10,288 miles were added to the length of the
routes. Between the 1st of July, 1852, and
1st of July, 1866, the railroad service waa in
creased 10,177 miles, exhibiting the fact that
within that time this description of service
was more than double. On the 1st of Decem
ber, 1856, the length of the railroad routes had
increased to 21,310 miles. The total cost for
this eervico at that date amounted to $2,403,
747. The whole cost of the inland service on
the 1st of July was $5,526,028.
Tbe Postmaster General alludes to the Pan
ama Railroad Company seizing on the occasion
of the withdrawal of the Steamers via Nica
ragua to force the Department to pay what
he consider! an exorbitant price across the
Isthmu, recommends regular contraota with
them not exceeding $50,000 per annum, and
a contract not exceeding $200,000 per annum
via the Nicaragua or iehuautcpeo route, so as
to give a weekly mail.
The California expenditures for the year
j 1856 were $10,500,287, and the gross revenue,
including annual appropriations for free mat
ter, $7,620,821. The deficiency is $3,787,000.
He recommends the abolition of the frank
ling privilege, and compulsory prepayment on
all trancieut printing matter; also the repeal
of the act of 1845, which gives the Postmas
ter General discretionary power to make new
contracts for ocean steamship service. He al
ludes to the faot embracing the branch from
New Orleans to Havana that there are now
four ocean steamship lines running out of N.
York, at an expense to government ot $1,498,
000 per annum, and says that there is no rea
son why one part of the country ahould be '
preferred to the exclusion of the others.
Among other points it is stated that nego
tiations are in progress with a view to the
reduction of the British transit charge on
United States alosed mails, and the rate of
iotage between the United States and Great
Jritain to twelve cenU a single letter.

Tbe run upon the Bank ot East Tennessee, has
been kept np unremittingly since the outbreak of
tbe panic, until now w regret to say, Its bills cling
to the bolder "closer than a brother." Until Sat
urday evening most of oar merchants continued to
take Jhe money at their counters, but on.Uonday,
there seemed to be a general letting down of "cotu
fidenc," -. aaiil, at noon, there was not a bneiness
bouse, in the place, we believe, that did not reject
it. The brokers would not buy it at any price
Oa Tuesday, the Branches at Jouesboro' and Chat
tanooga were cloved, and the specie remaining in
their vaults transferred to the office fn Enoxville:
Tbe bills ea these branches will not be redeemed
at the counter hi Kooxville, not, though the Bank
contemplates taking up the paper due at tbe
Branches, o soon as it can. Whether it will ever
be able to do this, we have no means of knowing
further than the verbal statement of the Bank ofO
ciala. The Enoxville office is redeeming its issues.
It is to be regretted that the Board of Directors,
if satisfied that the Bank is secure, did not, imme
diately upon tbe origin of the panic, overhaul their
assets and submit an authentic statement of the
condition of the Bank to the public. Such a pro
cedure would have stopped all further distrust of
the Bauk's soundness. But this has not been
done, and the consequence is, tbe bill-holders, ig-
norant of the Bank's condition and fearful of a low,
have poured in its paper upon it, until it has been
forced to a suspension at both the Branches. We
understand (and we woul J not S3y so without good
authority) that the circulation of tbe Bank, at the
time the panic brok out, was about f 600,000, of
this, Li!l to the amount of about 1225.000, have
been taken np, leaving over $350,000 yet unre
deemed. What basis the Bank has, upon which
to meet this circulation, we do not know. We will
say, however, that the Officers of the Bank state
that a sufficient amount of its assets will be due,
within the time allowed by the Charter, to ena
ble thera to meet all out standing bills. Assuming
that the Bank hus done a stiictly legitimate busi
ness, we see no reason why the money may not
all finally become good. Of the etandirg of the
Bank ia Kooxville at present, we will state that,
as currency, its money is worthless. Our mer
chants are "hands off" and the Brokers refuse it
at any price. The highest sale we heard of on
Monday, was at 75 cents, while on Tuesday (we
write Tuesday night) it was selling on the streets
at fifty cents, and as we learn, do one was pur -chafing,
except those who had a "way" of using it
We pive the foregoing as an impartial statement
of the facts as they exist. We certainly have no
disposition te do the Bank injustice, while at tbe
same time we will give no version in its behalf cal
culated to deceive our readers. Our individual
opinion,unsopported, would be comparatively worth
less, and we, therefore, give no advice make no
predictions. If the Bank has done only a legiti
mate business, its meuey must eventually be good;
if not, we can only trust that the money "sharp
ers" rather than the people, will have to bear the
brunt of the disaster. Knox. Register.
naavr Roebery $40,000 in Silis Sto
len. The New York Tribune gives the fol
On Saturday evening, a gang of five burglars
managed to secrete themselves in the store of
Messrs. J. W. Schulter & Hurd, No. 34 Broad
street, before llie premises were closed for the
oight, and after the store had been locked up
commenced their "depredations. They took
from the shelves about $40,000 worth of dress
silks and stowed them into twelve bags which
they had brought with them for the purpose.
They thenscended to the roof and entered,
throcgh the scuttles, six other stores in the
same block, all of which they searched for
mouey, hut found none. Their next care was
to make a safe retreat with their plunder, and
this they hoped to accomplish by leuving the
New street side of the building. They took
off their boots, in order that as little noise as
possible should be made, and commenced drag
ging their bags of plunder down stairs to the
grouLd floor. This process made considerable
noise, and disturbed two servAtit girls employ
ed in the sloon of Thomas Abbott, next door
to the building where the thieves were at
work. The girls, on being awakened from
sleep by the noise, fnpposed burglars were at
work iu the adjoiuing building, and gave the
alarm to Officers Unms, Murpby and Croft of
the First Ward Police. These ofiicers imme
diately burst open the door leading from the
restaurant to the hall adjoining, and there dis
covered six sacks of silks. Information was
then sent to the Station House, and Lient.
Dalton and tlie reserve force were soon on the
spot, and the whole block was surrounded. In
New street a piece of silk twisted into a rope
was found suspended from one of the upper
windows, reaching almost to the side walk.
On this account it was thought that the bur
glars were in that building, and the door of it
was forced in. wheu all the thieves were found
secreted up utairs in closets, covered np with
, paper, tc. They were soon secured and taken
to the Station House. They gave their names
as Joseph Perry, Richard Greenwood, John
Van Patton and Richard Harris.
High Trice for Negroes.

the Editor, shows that nogroes are in demand in
Oglethorpe county. These are the higest prices

About $100, 00 worth of property was sold here
to.day Und and negroes 6orua of tbe sales were
ahead of aoything we have ever heard. A negro
girl 15 years old, sol i for $1230; another girl 14

for f 1305; another girl 18 years old, (in family wav)
for tl5'Ki;a boy 13 years oldfor 1290; a fellow 22
years old, for 1500. These negroes belonged to
the estate of John Wynn, deceased, and were sold
on a credit of 12 months. There were 57 of
Wynn's negroes sold tody, and brought $11,026. J
Of these a great number (more tban ordinary) were 1
women and children, and afewkliseasedaodold sold
low. It is also proper to state, that, but few ol
these ti roes were bought by the Legatees, and
not one of thoof which we have mentioned spe
cific priees. They were common negroes field
But the most extraordinary sales were of three
negroes, belonging to the estate of Mrs. Mary Wat.
sou. Lah, a negro girl 16 years old, sold for
$1525; Harriet, about 20 years old and child in her
arms, sold for $1840 terms 12 months. Them
prices appear incrodible, but all who are disposed
to doubt can be satisfied by referring to the Record
of the Court of Ordinary of Oglethorpe county.
Errors about tui Uonct Bsc. The following
remarks from the Albany Cultivator, may corrtet
ome erroneous notions about the modus operandi of
the industrious bee :
Many suppose that the bee colls.honey from the
nectar of flower, aud simply carries it to iu cell in
the Live. This is not correct. Tbe nectar be col
lecta from the flowers ia simply a portion of its food
or drink; the honey it deposits in its cell ia a secre
tion from its melitic, or honey secreting glands;
analogous to the milk teeming glands of the cow
and other animals. If they were the mere culler
tors aad transporters of honey from the flowers to
the honeycob, then we should have the comb
frequently filled with molasses, wheosver the bees
have fed at a molasses hogshead. The honey bag
a the bes performs the same functions as the cow's
bag or udder merely rwceivea tbe honey from the
secre'iag glands, and retains it till a proper oppor'
tunity presents for its being deposited in its appro
priata storehouses the houeycomb.
Auotbrr error is that the bee collects pollen from
the flowers accidentally whtU it is iu search ot hon
ey. Qiite the contrary is the fart. Che bee when
in anarch of nectar, or honey as it is improperly cah
led, dues not collect poll-n. It goes in search of
pollen especially, and also for nectar. When the ,'
pollen ot the a jer is ripe and tt (or the ue of the
bee there It no nertar in the fljwer. It s general

Dsn, Thnt. F. Marshall on Henry Clay.
' ' ' from tha Frankfort Commonwealth.
At tbe earnest solicitation of many personal
friends, the lion. Thomas F. Marshall has at list
consented to tbe publication of his beautiful eulo
gy ea Mr. Clay in bis great speech at Covington,
delivered during the recent canvass. - We are grat
ified beyond measure that he has done so for even
hie wide spread reputation for omtory and classic
diction will receive a new lustre from this sample ot
bis peerless genius and unsurpassed powers of the
toric. It is bold, yet chaste sublime and lofty,
yet soft and touching. Tbe sculptor has done j-.g-tice
to his glorious subject.'" But it is not our nl
tention to pass any criticism upon the work which
tbe artist presents to our intellectual view'. It is
enough that Mr. Marshall was the speaker, aud
Kentucky's idol the subject:
"Every one knos that the various objects of
the Texas boundary, the admission of Cjhfon.in,
the territorial organization of Utah and New Mx
ieo, the recovery of fugitive slaves wro bad ecp
from their owners into the territory of States whose
constitutions did not allow slavery, and the aboli
tion of the slave trade in the District of Columbia,
were sought by Mr Clay to be united in a single
bill, and passed as one measure. In this form the
"omnibus" bill, as it was termed, failed. But in
the shape of several acts on each separate subject,
the principles conteuded for by Mr. Clay, were a
dopted and became a part of the leg:s!ation of that
year. Why the bill reported by himself was
defeated and dismembered, yet ia the shape ot
separate acts, adopted in almost exact accordance
with his wishes, it is not for roe to inquire. If it
were designed, on the part of some Senators, to
deprive the dying leader of the honors of his list
battle, it was a vain hope. In the public mind,
and in common 00 parlance, they are still asso
ciated. In history they will be known as Mr.
Clay's Compromise. They are grouped and termed
the Compromise of 1 850 iu the Democratic plat
form; even the Kansas and Nebraska acts adopt
the common nomenclature, and, instead of reciting
the several acts dy their titles, call them tbe Com
promise. The friends of Hr. Cliy meditate th construc
tion of a monument to mark the spot where repose
the remains of that frail tenement which once held
in his fiery soul. It will be honorable to them,
and will form a graceful ornament to the green
woods which surround the city of which he had
himself been so long the living ornament, but it
will be useless to bim or to his fame. He trusted
neither himself nor his fame to mechanical bunds
or perishable miteriaU. "Elegit tnuimmentum
pereiinius are." They may lay their pedestals of
granite they may rear their polished columns till
they pierce and flout the ski-s they may cover
their marble pillars all'over with the blazonry of his
deed, and trophies of his triumphant g-nius, and
surmount them with images of bis form wrought
by the cunningest hands it matters not he is
not there. The prisoned eagle has bur.-t the bars
and soared away from strife, and conflict, and ci
luinny. He is not dead he lives. I mean not the life
eternal in yon other world of which religion teach 1
es, but here on earth he lives the life which men
call fame, that life the hope of which forms the
solace of high ambition, which cheers and sustains
tbe brave and wise and good, the ctiampion of
truth and human kind, through all their labors
that life is his beyond all chance or change, grow
ing, expanive, quenchless as time and human
memory. He needs no statue be deeired none.
It was the image of his soul he wi-hed to perpet
uate, and he ha stamped it himself iu lines of flame
npon the souls of his countrymen.
Not all the marbles of Carrara, fashioned by
the chisel of Angelo into the mimicry of breathing
life, could convey to the senses a likeness so per
feet of himself as that which he has left upon the
minds of men. He carved his own etiituo, he
built his own monument. In youth he laid the
base broad aa his whole country, that it miht
well sustain the mighty structure he had designed.
He labored heroically through lift) on the colossal
In 1850, the last year of the first half of the
19th century, he prepared the healing measures
which bear his name, as the capittl, well propor
tioned and in perfect keeping with the now finish
ed column, crowned his work, saw thit it was good
and durable, Fpranz to its lofty and commanding
rummit, and gazing from that lone height upon a
horizon which embraced all coming time, wiiii eter
nity for his back-ground, and the eves of the
whole world ri vetted upon his solidary figure, con
sented there and thus to die.
We have already mentioned the arrival in
this city of the contractors for stocking ami
running the 6tage route across the Isthmus of
Tehuantepeo. I hey start this morning for
Minatitlan, accompanying a large detachment
of laborers, Bent by the company to complete
the road. There is no doubt that it ivill be
ready to receive the stock, which is in prepa
ration, and will he out there during the month
of January. We look forward, therefore, with
certainty to the opening of the road for travel
by the 1st of February.
This grand enterprise will thus be put into a
position, which ensures its future success.
The first and only critical stage of iin pro
gress will have been passed through triumph
antly. All the conditions of the grant will have
been pnnctaully fulfilled, and the most fastidi
ous requisition of the Mexican Government
complied with to the letter. This remove?

Bource, if nny could exNt, after tho many mani
festations of the cordial good will of the Mexi
can people and authorities, towards the enter
The road enjoys the benefit of a treaty stip
ulation for its protection, contained in the
Gadsden treaty, and is thus placed under the
guarantee of two Governments.
With title perfect, protection sfenred, and
the preliminary toad completed and stocked,
there is an absolute faith that it will so demon
strate its own superiority over all other means
of communication as to give it preference eve
rywhere, with business men, travelers, capi
talists and governments.
Its advantages are great and manifest.
It brings San Francisco and our Pacific pos
sessions two thousand miles nearer to the Uni
ted States, at New Orleans, than it is by the
Panama route to New York a saving of nearly
ten day's travel.
Its eastern terminus is within the Gnlf nf
Mexico, near to, and of easy access from the
Gulf port, the navy and tho defences of the
United States, and therefore emphatically tho
American route above all others, which are ac
cessible only by an intricate and perilous navi
gation through the Caribbean Sea.
Of the effect of this quick arid consequently
cheap communication upon the profpedty of
the Southwest particularly, it is impossible to
speak without using terms which seem exa
gerated. To ns here it is of immense value; to
the whole system of our railroads and the cen
tral aod northern roads connecting with them,
it will be the continuing link which extends
them to the Pacific Ocean. It will concentrate
the commerce ot the West and South west in
their natural channels, from which Northern
capital has been wresting them into the direc
tion of the Eastern ports, and it will build up
here a commercial city worthy of the prodigious
amount of trade that must centre here, to he
distributed through the vast regions of the Woet
and to distant continents.
To all the commercial and political interests,
the progress and the defences of the whole
country, it will prove a great blessing; and to
this region in particular, a source of great aud
immediate increase. V. O. Picayune.
