Thia letter is a powerful vindication of the
principles and objects of the American party,
. and annihilates, with one majestic swoop, the
petty objections of office-hunting demsgogues,
the absurb misrepresentations of time-&erring,
old-fogy politicians, and the shallow sophistries
of peripatetic stump speakers. The Satannah
Republican, in whose columns the letter first
appeared, justly remarks that the present po
sition of Judge Berrien, his eminent ability and
long services, cannot but impart great weight
to his counsels, and commend them to the res-
pectful consideration of the reader. lie does
not appear as a partisan, nor as an aspirant to

he addresses himself to the People of the State,
and discusses the great questions involved with
the ability of the statesman and in the spirit
of ihe patriot.
Agricultural and Mechanical Fairs.
The season for Agricultural and Mechanical
Fairs having arrived it may be well enough
to remind our readers of the great importance
of these gatherings. One of our agricultural
. exchanges very truly remarks that farmers are
rnot migratory, and therefore lose the advanta
ges gained by the experience of others, unless
they annually devote a portion of their time
. to visiting public fairs. Merchants, mechan
ics and manufacturers are readily informed of
all the current improvements of the day con
nected with their various vocations, but the
farmer Is required daring a large portion of
the year to remain within the boundary of
his own farm, and is, therfore, restricted to
the results of his own experiments, except 60
far as he may find those of others recorded in
the agricultur al journals. These alone seem
to be iiisufiicient.for many of his purposes.
,Ua requires to meet and converse personally
with farmers from different parts of the coun
try, lie also requires to see specimens oi me
products of others, and learn from those
producers who do not write for journals their
modes ot cultivation. lie should see all the
improved tools of the day, and these are not
only to le met with at fairs, but they may be
there seen in operation, so that he can judge
fairly of their effects, value, etc. Indeed, an
agricultural fair is to the farmer what the ex
change is to a merchant, and it is scarcely pos
sible for him to post himself np even with the
day without visiting these exhibitions. The
more protnineut men connected with agricul
ture are here to be met with, and addressess
are often delivered, which fully compensate for
the expense and time spent in travel.

THE AMEEICAS TARTY.
Letter from Hon. John 21. Berrien.
- Rockingham, Sept. 4, 1855.;
To tiib People of Georgia:
FelUntMxtizm I have received sundry com
munications from individuals, and from committees
of citizeus, inviting me to attend public assemblies
of the people, in different parts of the State, for
the purpose of discussing the questions which have
been, and which continue to be agitated during the
present canvass or if that could not be done, re
questing me to express my opinions on the subjects
wtnen excite the popular mind, in a form which
might be given to the public In complying with
this alternative request, since the first is impracti
cable, X hope I shall not be considered pregumptu
ous. While I am desirous of avoiding intrusion.
I am unwilling to shrink from the performance of
a out ; ana, having passed a great portion of ray
life in the service of the State. I do Dot feci at lib
erty to withhold my opinion on any qnestion of
puunc inieresi, concerning which my fellow-citizens
may desire the expression of it.
This is my real feeling that which induces this
address. I do not assume to euide nublie oninions.
but simply to express my own, at the call of those
who have a right to ask it. Tet, in doiugso, I must
speak plainly, and must necessarily come in conflict
wuneoiue ot the opposing opinions, which have
been urged with so much vehemence during the
present canvass. If this shall subject me to the
vituperation which has been so lavishly indulged, I
will rely On the intelligence and honorable feeling
of my countrymen to spare me the humilliation of
replying to 6uch assaults.
As an appropriate introduction to the remarks
which I propose to submit to your consideration, it
becomes necessary to advert for a moment to the
condition of parties in our State. The ancient
issues which divided the Whig and Democratic
parties, Lave either ceased to eiist, or have been
for the time, laid aside. A Dartr has arisen, which.
drawing its 8upport from the ranks of boih of its
predecessors, presents new and important questions
to public consideration. The Whig party, although
not dead, as has been vainly supposed, abstains, as
a party, from entering into this contest As a
conservative body, it nevertheless exists, and must
continue to do so, as long as a genuine spirit of
conservatism is cherished by the people of Georgia.
From the Union party, which was the offspring of
auAccasion, as well as from the Democratic party,
large draughts have been made by this new adven
turer in the political field. Too majority of the
Democratic party, however, remains intact, and is
strengthened by some (in point of numbers) incon
siderable accessions from the ranks of its ancient
opponents and, perhaps, yet more, by the facts,
that the great majority of tbem have hitherto stood
aloof from the contending parties.
The Democratic party, even thus mutilated, ad
vances boldly to the conflict, waging uncompromis
ing hostility against this new aspirant of political
power. The present contest is therefore waged
batween this unbroken remnant of the ancient
Democracy, strengthened, as I have before intimat
ed, and an association of individuals, or orders, who
have assumed to themselves the name of the Amer
ican Party. . In the manoeuvering preparatory to
the actual conflict, the Democratic party, with its
u?ual tact, has secured a position to windward, by
which it has the privilege of becoming the assail
ant, and of selecting iu point of attack, while its
opponents, organized for the purpose of correcting
abuses, have found themselves unexpectedly put on
In this state of the controversy, the questions
we are to consider, relate
1st To the object contemplated by the American
2nd To the means proposed for its accomplish
ment. Wo are first, then, to examine the object of this
party to ascertain its character, and to determine
Its tendency to promote or conflict with the public
welfare. Its first great object that which is ele
mental and primary and to which all others are
considered as ancillary, or anticipated as results, as
it is expressed in their own language, is
Til AT AMERICANS SHALL GOVERN AMER
ICA, that is, that the people of the country those
o whom it belongs, shall govern the country. This
would seem to be a simple, undeniable, and accept
able proposition, recognized by every civilized com
munity, and maintained even among the tribes of
i he forest aud so it would be received here, and
tow, among us, if it could be viewed simply, and
n its own merits, apart from those extraneous
considerations with which it bos been connected,
.ind complicated, and by which it is influenced. It
Is inconceivable .hat any considerable number of
American citizens, whether natives, or those who
have been heretofore naturalized, could be willing
to surrender the government of their country to
foreigners and to that description of foreigners,
who are annually, and in such immense numbers,
migrating to our shores. The naked proposition,
dimply presented at the domestic firesides. of our
citizens, would hardly find an advocate. But it is
Dot considered simply, and on its own merits. The
Aspirations of individuals, and the interests of party,
combine to forbid it. A great party, wielding the
power of the government, has attained, and main
tains its power by the aid of a vote, which is sub
stantially foreign, although the voters may have
passed through the form of a hurried naturalization.
It is natural that they should be unwilling to concur
in any measure which might divest them of this
power, or have a tendency to diminish their present,
or prospective means of securing and increasing it.
They are, therefore, under the promptings of inter
Fkt, the advocates of the foreigner, zealous to main
tain, and willing to extend his privilege of partici
pating in the government of the country. And
then again, the aspirants to political eminence
those in search of official position in the State or in
the Union, who would win the support of this great
party, must worship at the altars which they have
consecrated, and be eloquent in the assertion of the
rights of the foreigner as it he had any rights
here, until we had conferred them. Cull to your
recollcctiou the thrilling speeches to which you
have listened at the various gatherings which you
hive attended the pious horror which has been
expressed at the alleged violation of liberty of con
science the touching pictures which have been
drawn of our country as the asylum of the op
tressed the bold ascertion of the fitness of (he
foreign immigrant to share your most cherished
privileges, in the samo extent in which you your
selves enjoy them, and then consider from whom
this declamation comes say if it proceeds from the
disinterested advocates of the common interest, or
the bold and selusn asserters or their own.
To accomplish the object expressed in their pri
mal elementary maxim, that American shall govern
America, the American Tarty proposes
1. Substantial modifications of the acts regulating
Under the existing laws, five years residence in
the country, and a compliance with the forms pre
scribed by them, entitles a foreigner to citizenship.
and to all the privileges which you enjoy, with two
or throe exceptions, to which it is not necessary to
refer. The American party dt sirt to enlarge this
term to provide for a more accurate scrutiny of
the claims of persons applying lor naturalization
and against the immigration of paupers, and felons
into the United states.
Ia niv judgment these measures would be erai
oently conducive to the public welfare. This is
with me no new opinion aud it is not now for the
first time expressed. Several years ago the subject
encaced the attention of Congress. As Chairman
of the Judiciary Committee, I made a report to the
Senate, contemplating a full and final report at the
then next session, ou the return of certain commis
sions, to ascertain the various frauds which were
alleged to exist in the grant, and subsequent uae of
natualiZAtion papers. Before that time cnanges in
the Senate resulted in placing a Democratic Senator
at the bead of the Committee, and the matter was
I do not think it necessary to enter into an elabo
rate argumet to prove, that the indiictimiuats ad
miaiioa of foreigners, after a residence of five years
to the privileges of citizenship, is n evil. v e ar
making we have thus far succes;-fu!!y made an ex
periment of self government Our free inatitutions
which have hitherto been found efficient for nation
al advancement, and for individual security, have
been indebted for their support, to the loyalty of
our people rather than to their own compulsive
powers. The founders of the Republic, were men
qualified for thdr offiee united la reverence for tb
Uws la resisUnco to oppression in devotion to
the principles of civil liberty ud the spirit wnicn
animated them, waa infused Into the institutions
which they established. It was only tiuh mm,
who eould have founded rurA a Government, ileo
animated by timilar ifrinl, ean don preserve It.
Let the abortive attempts iu revolutionary France,
to eUbtih, and maintain free Institutions, attest
the truth of this assertion.
Now I rronound this enquiry Are the foreigners.

our election, eo rapidly incorporated among us,

to be the uarai4us u our use lusuiuuocsr i
would be very sorry to deny that among these em
igrants, there are Borne worthy men, who when
familiariz3d to our institutions by long residence
among us, may become good citizens, and capable
of participating in our privileges, but no candid
man will deny that a Urge proportion are of a very
different character, consisting for the most part of
Red Republicans, or anarchist", criminals, and pau
pers or will venture when dismounted from the
suirap, calmly to assert, that five,years residence
here, will qualify an ignorant foreigner thoroughly
to understand our institutions, and loyally to conform
to them. Then let it be remembered that each one
of these, who is admitted to the exercise of the
elective franchise, without being thus qualified, and
who is consequently liable to be led astray by the
artifice of the demagogue, or coerced by the threat
ened anathema of his priest, annuls the vote of one
citizen may in fact, expunge your vote, or mine.
Then consider , the number and character of the
people, who are annually cast upon our shores. I
do not mean to trouble you with statistics. I dare
say the"records have been ransacked by opposing
candidates for your favor, and that the results ore
familiar to vou. I take from the papers of the
diiy those to which I refer uncontradicted state
ments, r ' -' " .
Bear in mind then the fact that a foreign immi
gration, which, up to the year eighteen hundred,
did not exceed five thousand persons, has risen
since eighteen hundred and fifty, to half a million,
and which, looking to the state of Europe, will pro
bably, and iu a very short time, mount up to a mil
lion a year. Now give free scope to your bcnevo
lent feelings exercise the most extended charity,
in estimating the probable number of these who are
worthy men capable by a proper probationary
term, of being rendered good citizeES and what a
fearful residuum will remain what a mass of pois
onous ingredients to be infused into the body politic!
The census of 1850 shows that the number of
foreign paupers and criminals exceeded that of na
tive paupers and criminals, although the native pop
ulation as teven tintt greater than the foreign.
What would be your feelings if poverty and crime
existed in this proportion and to this extent among
yourselves? If the quantum of pauperism, and
vice which existed among yon, was the proportion
of a population seven times greater in number than
your own, what security would you have for your
free institutions? what guarantee for your individual
rights? - "
Consider, also, that these emigrants, snunmng
the South, from their unwillingness to compete with
slave labor and flocking to the North, from their
abolition tendencies, in search of kindred spirits,
are thus rapidly mcreasiug the majority against you
in Congress, atevery apportionment, and will, unless
checked, in no very great length ol time, place the
Constitution and the institutions of the South at
the mercy of fanaticism.
And how are these calamities to be avarted, if
this borde of foreigners, rapidly increasing, is to be
annually added to your Bociety ? The plagues of
Egypt were mercies, since they were guided by
Divine benevolence, and stayed by Ilia omnipotence,
when the deliverance ot His chosen people was
effected. But who shall stay this moral pestilence,
if you are insensible to your danger I If persevered
in, in what can it eventuate but inf the ruin of the
Republic ? ; Can the noble system of Government,
established by our fathers, be administered by men
like these? . - . ' ; -. - -
You are told that your numbers so largely ex
ceed that of the foreign population, that all appre
hension of danger is idle. 1 do not mean to give
offence to any man, but to speak in the sincerity of
my heart, when I say that such an argument seems
to me to estimate very humbly the understandings
of those to whom it is addressed, In the open,
manly defence of your rights and liberties of that
glorious constitution bequeathed to you, by your
fathers of your homesteads and your household
in the defence of these against open and manly as
suit, you .are competent to resist not only the
foreigners among us, but a world iu arms. God
fordbid that one American bosom should palpitate
with craven fear in view of such a conflict. But
this is not the danger which menaces. Every man
unworthy ot citizenship, who is admitted to its privi
leges, is an enemy in your camp a moral leper.
spreading contagion far and wide. The morals of
tho community are corrupted its heart is tainted
bj such association; for however stained with
crime, the stamp of citizens makes them po
litically part of yourselves. Can you bear the
Aud why should you bear it? Foreigners aided
us in our revolutionary struggle. Aye, and they
have received their reward. They became incor
porated among us, or have voluntarily gone else
where ia quest of new adventure. But we invited
immigration. Aye, at the close of our revolu
tionary war, when, amid its toils and privations we
bad achieved our independence, we had a sparse
and exhausted population, and an extensive and
uncultivated domain. - We required an increase of
population for the purposes of internal improvement
and external defence, and conforming to this policy,
our system of naturalization was established.
Europe was then calm, at least free from the menace
of intestine commotion. Tarty spirit among our
selves, was comparatively quiescent. We invited
foreigners, and we received them.. They came to us
in small numbers, mingled with our people, and
peacefully pursued the avocations of industry- All
thi t cliangtd. We have a population sufficiently
numerous for every present purpose, and without
the aid of immigration we are increasing in numbers
as rapibly as we could desire. Notwithstanding
this, there is an annual out pouring upon us, of the
restless and unquiet spirits of Europe, its paupers,
and its criminals. Not mingling with us, as when
their numbers were small, they are now sufficiently
numerous to herd together to live apart from us
to constitute distinct foreign societies in the midst
of the native population. In the bitterness of our
party contests, this foreign vote has been eagerly,
and often by unworthy means, sought after and
obtained alternately by both parties; and acting as
a unit, the boast ot Kossuth has been realized it
holds the balance, and may decide our elections.
This is a state of things not to be borne by Ameri
can freemen. This foreign incursion must be regu
luted, or checked, and the American party has its
origin in the conviction of this neccessity.. The
very general existence of this conviction baa
secured to them a support beyond the limits of
their association. I concur with them Iu the be
lief that the laws regulating immigration, and the
naturalization of foreigners ought to be subjected
to a thorough and searching revision, that the term
of probation should be largely extended, that to pro
tect us from the intrusion of paupers and orimuals,
provisions ought to be mado for the ascertain
ment by our consuls abroad, of the character and
condition of persons proposing to emigrato to the
United States, and that every safeguard which the
wisdom of Congress can devise, should be thrown
around tho amendatory statute, to prevent and
punish its evasion.
2. As a further means of attaining their object
the individuals comjtosing the American party,
have bound themselves by mutual pledges, each to
the other, to unite their exertions for its accom
plishment. I suppose such a pledge, either ex
pressed, or implied, ia the tie which connects the
members of every party. As to their organization
their ritual their particular modes of proceeding
and of recognition, and the secrecy which has hith
erto been observed in their proceedings, alt which
have given occasion for so much eloquent and in
genuous disclamation, and denunciation I am not
required to express an opinion, for these it is un
derstood(have been a bandoned by their National
Couucil, and aU that is now required for admission
Into their order ia the approval of their principles.
Ono of tbeae, tha'which announces their determina
tion not to vote for or appoint Romanists to office has
been the subject of much reprehension, and has
been assailed as a violation ol the liberty of con
science, wlikh is secured by the Constitution.
The provides ot that instrument which sre sup
posed to be vioUted, are contained in the conclu
ding clause of the third section of the sixth article
and in the Brat clause of the first article of the
amendments. The first, after providing for admin
istering an oath to different public functionaries,
contains the following provision :
" But no religious test shall ever be required ss a
qualification for any office, or pubuc trust under the
United States." :
The second declares :
That Conrress ahall make no law respecting an
esUblUbmtiot of religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof." j v
By what process of reasoning, these prot isions of
the conatituuoii can be made to conuict witr. vie
right of the citizen, to the unlimited exercise of his
own free and uncontrolled will, in the enjoyment of
his elective franchise, I am utterly at a loss to at
cover, and I have sought it in vain, in such srgu
ments of the objectors, as I have bad an opportu
nity of perusing. The first clause relates to persons
elected to office, and requires that they shall have
lbs oath of office administered to them, without
being subjected to aoy religious test. And this is
the whrle scops and effect of the act It does cot,
even remotely, interfers with the right of an indi
vidual to txercue bis own judgment in dcUruJubg
whether the religion of the candidate, or the want
of it, ought, or ought not to influence him in casting
bis vote for or against him. This seems almost too
plain for argument. If a voter believes the religion
of a candidate to be unsound and dangerous, to an
extent which would induce distrust in the ordinary
transactions of life, it is not only his right,- but his
duty to withhold his confidence and his vote. No
provision of the constitution forbids it, and duty to
the country requires it. It would be wrong in the
Government to make this test, because it is an ex
ercise of discretion, which the people have not
Intrusted to them, but have reserved to themselves.
Thus that which would be wrong in the Government
is the right and the duty of the citizen: How far
this may apply to RomanisU is a matter for the
exercise of individual judgment, and for that alone.
I would not feel that native American Romanists,
trained in the principles of civil liberty, of rever
- ence for the constitution and laws, and devotion to
the Union, would come within its scope. For the
rest, to shew that the view of the American party
is sustained by a man of large intelligence, and of
undoubted piety, I subjoin the letter of Mr. Wesiey
remarking only, that the attempt to restrict his
opinions to the particular state of affairs existing at
the time when bis letter was written, is simply futile,
since it is perfectly obvious that they are of enduring
applicability, at least until Romanists shall abandon
those precepts of their religion, to which Mr. Wes
LETTER OT JOHN WESLEY.
Sir Sometime ago a pamphlet wa9 sent me,
entitled "An Appeal from the Protestant Associa
tion, to the People of Great Britain." A day or
two since a kind of answer to this was put into my
hand, which pronounces iu style contemptible, its
reasoning futile, and its object malicious. On the
contrary, I think the style of it ia clear, easy, and
natural; the reasoning, in general, strong and con
clusive; the object or design, kind and benevolent.
And in pursuance of the same kind and benevolent
'design, namely, to preserve our happy constitution,
I shall endeavor to confirm the substance of that
tract, by a few plain arguments.
" With persecution I have nothing to do I per
secute no man for his religious principles. Let
there be as boundless freedom in religion as any
man can conceive. But this does not touch the
point. I will set religion, true or false, utterly out
of the question. Suppose the Bible, if you please,
to be a fable, and the Koran to be the word of God.
I consider not whether the Romish religion is true
or false ; build nothing on one or the other supposi
tion. . Therefore, away with all your commonplace
declamation about intolerance and persecution for
religion I Suppose every word of Pope Pius' creed
to be true ! Suppose the Council of Trent to have
been infallible ; yet I insist upon it that no govern
ment not Roman Catholic ought to tolerate men of
the RoinaD Catholic persuasion.
V "I prove this by a plain argument ( let him. an
swer it that can ) that no Roman Catholic does or
can give security for his allegiance or peaceable
behavior, I prove it thus : It is a Roman Catholic
maxim, established not by private men, but by pub
lic council, that " No faith is to be kept'with here
tics." This has been openly avowed by the Council
of Constance ; but it has never been openly dis
claimed. Whether private persons avow or disavow
it, it is a fixed maxim of the Church of Rome. But
as long as it is so, nothing can be more plain, than
that the members of that Church can give no rea
sonable security to any government for their allegi
ance and peaceable behavior. Therefore they ought
not to be tolerated by any government, Protestant,
Mohammedan or Pagan. You say, "nay, but they
take an oath of allegiance." True, five hundred
oaths ; but the maxim, "no faith is to be kept with
heretics," sweeps them all away as a spider's web.
So that still no Governors that are not Roman Ca
tholics can have any security of their allegiance.
"Again those who acknowledge the spiritual
power of the Pope can give no security of their al
legiance toany government; but all Roman Cath
olics acknowledge this; therefore they can give no
security for their allegiance. The power of gran
ting pardons for all sins, past, present, and to come
is, and has been for many centuries, one branch
of his spiritual power. But those who acknowledge
him to have this spiritual power can give no secu
rity for their allegiance, since they believe thePope
can pardon rebellion, high treason and all other
sins, whatsoever. The power of dispensing with
any promise, oath or vow, is another branch of the
spiritual power of the Popo ; all who acknowledge
his spiritual power must acknowledge this. But who''
ever acknowledges the dispensing power of the
Pope, can give no security for his allegiance to any
government. Oaths and promises are none; they
are as light as air a dispensation makes them null
and void. Nay, not only tho Pope, but even a
priest, bas power to pardon sinsl This is an essential
doctrine of the Church of Rome. But they- that
acknowledge this, cannot possibly give any security
for their allegiance to any government. Oaths
are no security at all; for the priest can par
don both perjury and high treason. Setting their
religion aside, it is plain that upon principles of rea
son, no government ought to tolerate men who can
not give any security to that government for thier
allegiance and peaceful behaviour.. But this, no
Romanist can do, not only while he holds that "no
faith is to be kept with heretics, but so long as be
acknowledges either priestly absolution, or the
spiritual power of the Pope.
"If any one pleases to answer this, and set his
name, I shall probable reply. But the productions
of anonymous writers I do not promise to take any
"I am sir your humble servant,
"City Road, January 12, 1780."
The whole force of the second provision is spent
in the prohibition to Congress. It forbids Congress
to "make any law respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
It does not forbid individuals to make such estab
lishments. On the contrary we have many of tbem.
It relates to the legislation of Congress, not to the
vote of Vte citizen -and the foreign zeal which would
distort these provisions of the constitution, so as to
divest the citizen of the uncontrolled exercise of
his elective franchise, is, as it seems to me, alike
alien from the constitution and the plainest dictates

has been the subject of much commentary. I state,
without discussing them, my own opinions on the
BubjecU of which it treats.
1 recognize the impracticability, from whatever
cause, of reconciling the conflicting opinions which
exist on the subject of slavery, and the danger of
agitating that question in the National Legislature.
1 am content that the American party shall, in good
faith, hold themselves bound to abide by, and main
tain the existing laws on the subject, and with their
declaration that Congress has no power to interfere
with slavery in the States where it exists, or to re
fuse the admission of any State because iu consti
tution does or does not recognize slavery as a part
ef ka social system. I hold that the territories of
the United States, are the property, not of Con
gress, but of the whole people of the United States,
until such territory becomes a State. I do not be
lieve that Congress has the power to abolish slavery
in the District of Columbia, apart from the contract
Vuh Maryland, or considerations of public faith,
but as Congress bas no constitutional power to vio
late a solemn contract, or to commit a breach of the
national faith, I think they are equally precluded by
These are my opinions on the questions presented
to me. I desire to add a brief remark on another
The several nartiM In this State have all rlanted
themselves n the fourth resolution of the Georgia
Convention of 1850, and the interpretation given to
it by some persons, is that upon the happening of
either of the contingencies specified in it, Georgia
is! to prepare for an imnudiate "d'uruption of tho
Uu'kmu" I do not so undersund it. I think it
could not have been so understood by its framcr.
I am surs that this is iot the fair import of iu
terms, and still more confident that such is not the
feelina- of the people of Georgia.
In the specified contingencies, Gs-rgia pleJgcs
herself to resut "even aa a last resort to the ais
ruption of the Union. The terra last, is a rkla'
tit i term. It necessarily implies some preceeding
action some honest, well meant, patriotic efforts
to secure your . rights, without the necessity ot
caving recourse to this last fearful resort, the (lis
ruptioo of the Union. I implore my countrymen
to give to this subject, tbeir earnest, anxious con
sideration not to be diverted from it by the de
clamation of political aspiranU the agitations of
the canvas or the excitement of the ousting
but calmly, queiily, in the retirement of their own
boeaes, to consider what It is, to which this con
trovercy is tending and humbly supplicating that
Almighty Being, under whoe protecting Providence
our LU hers laid the foundations of this great Re
public, to Imbue us with the same conciliatory
spirit, by which they were animated, to seek under

problem which shall reconcile Southern rilu with

To Ot Senators elect of Tennessee f
Hoh. Sua : I havejavailed myself ot this medium ot the
public press to inform you that I am a candidate before your
Honorable body for Door Keeper at your next session, and
trust in to doing joa will take my name in consideration
with the many others who may aspire to that position. In
thoa publicly announcing myself, I deem that I have acted
rightly, and althoagh it is somewhat deviating from the usu
al course of candida'es for that office, who, generally speak
ing, importune Senators with letters too tedious to read, c
and not wishing to annoy you in that manner, I shall con- .
tent myself with this card, trusting on our meeting at Nash
ville, and a farther acquaintance in October, where we will
have the opportunity of interchanging sentiments. I will
close by only saying if elected I will discharge my duty to
the best of my ability, and to the comfort and convenience
of your body throughout the session.

Greene's Pure White "Wheat.
. Ma. Eotimr : I expect to visit your State about the 20th
of September next for the purpose of engaging to the good
Farrar an article of Vfaw which is very superior in its
character. I have exhibited this Wheat at four different
Fairs, and in every instance a premium has been awarded.
All good judges of fine Wheat on seeing it readily acknowl
edge its superiority. On my visit to Nashville, and other
places, I will bring with me a fair sample whii h can be seen
by any who may desire. I shall al o exhibit handbills giv
ing a more full and sati factory account, with the signature
of gentlemen whi have raided this Wheat and manufac
tured it into flour. Its weight at two different mills is CS3
each per basheL This wheat is of the very earliest kind.
Anyone dejiring to obtain the Wheat for seed will address
the subscriber at I.a Grange, Tronje countv, Georgia. The
Wheat will be put' op in sncks from half bu-hel to any
quantity desired, marked on it the name of the purchaser
and place of delivery, Ac, at five dollars per bushel. It is
expected the cash to accompany all orders.
I al?o have a superior Red or Straw coiored Wheat of the
earliest and most productive kind. I have been cowing this
wheat for about twenty years and I can safely say that
better colored wheat I never have seen. 1 will also bring
with me a fair sample for exhibit on. This wheat will be
worth (bar do'dars per bushel delivered at the La Grange
Depot, in good strong sacks.
