THE DAILY UNION.
JOHN It. MARLING, EDITOR.
A PRECIOUS SCOUNDREL,
the facts in regard to a most extraordinary series
'pf-viilantes bove just came to our knowledge. A
man calling himself II P. Painter, having a little
Sirl with him about six years of age, came into this"TfeelinS how P'ailing among, some.of our.whig co- J
t r ttei"hborhooil. about the last of August, oflastvear.
nd oommenced tlie business of chair-making, a
yffiovy-miles from this place. About ChrisUnas he left
""'auddonly, with a mare he had stolen, leaving sundry
debts unpaid, and sundry contracts unfulfilled. He
- contracted dobts wherever he could obtain credit,
and was advertised as a scoundrel in one of the
town papers, by one of Ms, creditors. Since his
t; departure revelations have been made by negroes
: here, and in Robertson county, which prove that
lie had been tampering with the slave population.
He promiged a number of slaves safe passage to the
- free States, upon the payment to him of twenty
dollars, and authorized the same proposition to be
made to the entire slare population. He induced
the negroes to steal the mare for him upon which
he left, promising them that as soon as he could go
t5 Oharlotte and sell the animal he would return,
and the negroes were to be ready to leave with him
Ut as soon as they got back. Quite a gang of the ne
groes assembled in Robertson county during the
holidays awaiting hi3 return. One of the negroes
.vho had been tampered with, persuaded his wife
to murder her mistress, in order to get possession
of 250 known to be in the house, so thatshe might
go with him to the free States. The negro woman
is now in jail at Springfield. It is thought that
Painter had no idea of running the negroes off, but
" " that he was merely levying contributions upon them
for his own benefit. There is no question that he
. aroused sanguine hopes of freedom in their minds,
and produced a very high degree of dissatisfaction
among them. Whatever his purpose, the result has
been the same.
A vile attempt has been made upon the life of a
respectable lady, masters have been robbed, and a
- rebellious spirit aroused in the hearts of the negroes
; by his villiany, and it behooves all good citizens to
exert themselves to bring him to justice.
When last heard of Painter was in the city of
Nashville. He is about o feet G inches high, spare
made, very black hair, and blue eyes, and has an
upper front tooth out. The little girl is undoubted
ly his daughter, and his attachment to her, which
will probably induce him to keep her with him,
may possibly aid in his detection. Clarksville Jef
fersonian. Siiaiip max, that PiF.ncE. Two sets of delegates
from New York lately repaired to Concord, N. IT.,
to instruct the President as to avIio he should ap
point in his Cabinet from that State. Either would
prefer Old Nick to the favorite of the other. Pierce
declined to see the delegations separately; and to
obtain an interview at all, they had to unite, but
neither would say Cabinet once, in the presence of
the other. Seeing themselves outdone, they re
turned to the tavern, played a game of whist for
. the drinks and oysters, discussed the savory things,
which were pronounced good, and returned home.
Of course neither party can make mouths at the
. other, or report private pledges from the President;
' looking the while, wise and mysterious. Pierce

the Captain of the Spring Garden watch encounter
ed in the street, a man apparently, very nicely
dressed in a black coat, vest and pantaloons, who
desired to accompany the officer to th? Station
House, as he was homeless. The stranger remain

covered him to be a woman a lovely young girl,
of 10 years of age. She disclosed her history to the
officer. In a few words, it is as follows : She is a
native of Syracuse, N. Y. Last summer a young
man won her affections, seduced and deserted her.

TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 1.
7AR IN THE CAMP.
We made some extracts, the other day, from the
Franklin Jlomc Press, indicative of the state of
temporaries. The following article from the Anox-
'viUc Whig shows that the -anti- Jones whigs are not
cowed, but stand in a defiant attitude. We copy
it, at the risk of provoking from one of our whig
neighbors a windy- article upbraiding its friends for
giving '?aid and comfort to the enemy :"
The Next Governor. The next Gubernatorial
canvass is aboul. to open upon us, and with more
than ordinary interest. Gov. Campbell has pub
lished a card in Arhich he positively and most une
nuivocallv declines another race. The truth is,'
j Gov. Campbell Li not acceptable to the Jones Tead
I ers, and in proof of this, their deity organ here,
came out some vrecks' ago, in the very face of all
his claims, forCdlom! They intend to have a man
who was more airdial in his support of the' Scott,
Greely and Seward ticket, and hence Campbell and
all the Gentry, Williams and Foster men, are at a
discount with thsm. Nay, they are determined to
breake the rule of the anti-Scott whigs, or ruin the
party in Tennessee. Let the anti-Scott whigs, who
are the true whigs of Tennessee, treat with scorn
and contempt, the attempt of this Jones faction, to
force upon them, for Governor, and for Congress,
and the Legislature, a set of insulting and shallow
demagogues. They intend, by force, to represent
every whig Congressional, Senatorial, and Repre
sentative district in the State. They do not intend
to ask the support of the masses of the party on
principle, but as in the late Presidential canvass,
they claim to be the whig party, and deny the hand
of fellowship to such as did not endorse the fraud
of the late Baltimore Convention.
The tone and temper of the KnoxvUle Register,
whose several editors get their cue from Washing
ton, is insulting, and calculated to drive honest men
from their fellowship, if not to make Tennessee a.
Democratic State beyond all doubt The true whigs
of the State, the Fillmore men, owe it to themselves
not to creap after these arrogant Jones and Seward
leaders, and force their votes upon such men as they .
bring out, even when they are notifying us that our
help is desired. For our own part, we shall have
nothing to do with any such leaders.
Without some man can be agreed upon, for Gov
ernor, who will be acceptable to the whole whig
party, we are to be beaten in Tennessee. This
honor has been about equally divided, since the
division of parties, and this is the year for the dem
ocrats to succeed. In 1839, Polk, democrat, was
elected over Cannon. In 184o, A. V. Brown,
democrat was elected over Foster. In 1847, JN,
S. Brown, whie was elected over old Aaron. Iu
1849. Gen. Trousdale, democrat, was elected over
NeilS. Brown. In 1851, Gen. Campbell, with the
aid of T. A. Ii. JVelson, was elected over Trousdale.
Who will be the next whig candidate, we know
not, and to be candid, care but little. I here are
prominent whigs in East Tennessee, and beyond the
the mountains, who even voted lor bcott, fceward
& Co., for whom we would vote with a great deal
of pleasure. These are not likely to get the nomi
nation. There are others, however, aspiring to the
nomination, who cannot get our humble support
against the vilest locofoco who breaths the vital air.
We have nothing to disguise our position all

THE DEBATE IN THE SENATE THEMONROE DOC
TRINE. Yfe published last week extracLs'of "the speeches
of Messrs. Cass and Mason, in the 'Senate, on the
; subject of the Monroe doctrine. We publish to-day
I Gen. Cass' rejoinder to Mr. Mason, and to-morrow
shall offer some remarks of our own upon the sub
iject,: . t
MrfCASS.' T shall detain the Senate but a very
short time. I shall hardly say a Pickwickian word;
and if the senator from California will keep his ey
upon the clock, he may stop me in ten minutes.
As Mr. Polk said, for a quarter of a century down
lohis day, and that is now'some years since, the
doctrine of Mr. Monroe had been distinctly under
stood by the American people as a historical fact.
I never heard it doubted until yesterday, as far as
I recollect, that Mr. Monroe protested against the
rccolonization of any portion of the American con
tinents by England or any of the European pow
ers. He expressly excluded the idea of interfering
with existing right but he protested forever after
wards against the recolonization of any portion of
the North or South American continents. Every
man, so far as I recollect, has understood it so. Mr.
Polk distinctly understood it o. So did Mr. Can
ning and Mr. Rush, as the paragraph which I read
yesterday from Mr. Rush's book shows.
I have not a word to say with respect to the his
tory of the time given by the honorable senator
from Virginia. I agree to it all. I have no doubt
whatever that the existing condition of South
America directed the eyes of our country to it.
His whole narrative of' the matter is correct I
give Mr. Rush great credit for the whole course of
his negotiations, and the administration of- Mr.
Monroe greater credit; because notwithstanding
the boast of Mr. Canning made before the world
that it was he that called these States into exist
ence we recognized their independence before
But allow me to say that that portion of the mes
sage of Mr. Monroe which the.honorable gentleman
read applies to all time hereafter. Its reasonings
are capable of general and universal application.
The doctrine laid down is that the American con
tinents have interests of their own distinct from
Europe; and Mr. Monroe's object was, in that ex
isting state of things, to sweep the allied powers
of this continent,- to prevent them, for all time
thereafter, from taking possession of any of the
American States. Everybody knows that if Ave
were to allow recolonization, we would prefer that
these colonies should be held by Spain rather than
by England. What, then, would Mr. Monroe have
gained by his declaration, it was to be restricted to
what some gentlemen seem to think it was restrict
ed ? What would he have gained by symply say
ing: "We protest against these colonies being re
colonized by Spain ?"
It will be recollected that it ran through Eng
land, and it was announced on this floor, that the
extent of Mr. Monroe's declaration was to sweep
all the colonies on this continent out of existence.
But it was not so. Mr. Monroe expressly reserved
the rights of the existing colonies. In his message
ho merely referred to South America to the pre
cise state of tilings existing, and to no other. There
was no object in putting in a reservation.
I agree with the honorable senator from Vir
ginia in his estimate of Mr. Monroe. I consider
him one of the best and wisest statesmen we ever
had. He was exceedingly guarded and cautious
in his language and in his acts. I had the honor
of knowing him personally, and the panegyric of
the senator from Virginia is one that he well de
serves. His character ought to stand, as it does
stind, high in the estimation of his countrymen.
He was not only guarded and cautious, but, when
the interests of his country required it, he took a
firm and decided stand.
The declaration which the senator has just read
is this in substance : We owe it to those powers to
declare that they shall not extend their system to
this continent, because we have peculiar interests
of our own, distinct from European interests. We
had then, we have now, and we shall have through
aH time ; and every reason applying to that state V
things applies with as much force to any future
state of things in which there may be attempts
made to recolonize any portion of America. In the
same message, as the honorable gentlemen has said
the doctrine for which I contend was laid down stili
more distinctly. To be sure, the occasion for it
was different; it was in reference to some contro
versy with the Russians, who wanted to extend
their donations on the western coast of America
down as far as California, and even including a por
tion of that Referring to that, President Monroe
made a broad general declaration, which went out
to the world in his annual message to the Ameri
can Congress, stating distinctly what was the po
sition of this government. He said :
"In the discussions to which this interest has
given rise, and in tho arrangements by which they
may terminate, the occasion has been judged proper
for asserting, as a principle in which the rights and
interests of the United States are involved, that the
American continents, by the free and independent
condition which they have assumed and maintain,
are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for
future colonization by any European power."
It is utterly impossible for words to make the
proposition plainer than it is here announced; md
the whole world, from that day to this, has under
stood thatlanguage precisely as I have explained it.
That was the distinct understanding both of Mr.
Rush and of the English government; and, in fact"
the whole world understood it so. Let me, upon
this point, read again the extract which I read yes
terday, from Mr. Rush's book. Mr. Rush, in hi?
account of his conversation with Mr. Canning says:
"But although no joint movement tooknlam mv
despatches had distinctly put before our govern
ment the intentions of England; with which, in the
main, our policy harmonized; and President Mon
roe, in his opening message to Congress, which
followed almost immediately afterwards. inDpppm-
ber, 1823, putforth the two following declarations:
1. Tnat it was impossible for the allied nowers
to extend their political system to anv nnrfc of
America without endangering our peace and hap
piness; and 'equally impossible, therefore, that we
should behold such interposition with I'mliflW.
That is the first proposition. And here let me
say that the honorable senator is perfectly right in
his whole history of the controversy, the difficulties
that led to it, and the ground taken by the Ameri
can government But what else does Mr. Rush
say? What is the second proposition to which he
alluded? It is:
"2. Whilst alluding to discussions between the
United States and Russia, then commenced with a
view to arranging the respective claims of the two
nations on the northwest coast of Amerind flip
President also declared that the occasion had been
judged proper for asserting, as a principle in which
the rights and interests of the United States were
involved, that the American continents, by the
free and independent condition which they had as
sumed and maintained, were henceforth not to be
considered as subjects for future colonization by any
What said Mr. Canning and the British govern
ment to that? "The first of these declarations," as
to the intervention of the allied powers of thp
American Stales, "was," says Mr. Rash, "probably
expected by England, and was well received
Everybody saw at once that it referred to the hos
tile plans of the allied powers against the late Span
ish provinces;" which it undoubtedly did, although
its general reasoning applied to all time to come,
and to all similar circumstances. But with respect
to the second declaration, in which the general
doctrine of anti-colonization was laid down, Mr.
Rush says, it "was unexpect6d, and not acquiesced
in, as accounts lam yet to give of negotiations with
the British government will make known." This
is precisely Avhat I said yesterday. I had no idea
of renewing the subject. My only intention was
to put myself rightj and having done that, I cheer
fully yield the floor.

"SPIRIT OF THE PRESS! :
The True Whig contains an'articleon "Parties in
Tennessee a lesson for the times." Our protege
attributes the defeat of the democratic party, in 1851
and 1852, to the dissensions existing in its ranks,
and warns the whigs against similar consequences.
We hope our neighbor will continue his-revelations.
This warning of our neighbor is equivalent to the
admission of the well known fact, that there do
exist causes of dissension in the whig party, and is
important in that respect Our neighbor may warn
until doomsday, but his warnings, like those of Cas
sandra, will be scoffed at and unheeded. The whig
party is thoroughly disorganized, and there i3 tut
little probability that the wire-workers at Ifash
ville will succeed in preserving order.
The Banner has an article on "Partisan Justice
our neighbor is better authority than this. O r
neighbor proceeds to charge various things upon
the "Polk administration." The whigs have a very
peculiar faculty of disproving a charge against them,
by charging the same thing upon their opponents.
They are, in this respect, really amusing.
The Gazelle has an article upon Our Firemen.
Our neighbor pays an eloquent and deserved com
pliment to these companies. There is no associa
tion more worthy of praise, and it does us good to
see them complimented.
