"Washington, May 8, 9 P.M. The foreign appointments
are to be taken up seriously to-morrow it is understood, and
as many of them disposed of as possible. Mr. Marcy de
clared yesterday that unless they were soou made he would
resign, as his time had been so occupied with applications
for office that he had not time or opportunity of reading s
single despatch, much less writing one, since he had enter
ed the State Department, whilst newspaper literature and
special correspondence was to him a scaled book. This is
not the entertainment ho was invited to, and he won't
stand it any longer. There is much truth in tho complaint.
The selection persons to fill tho offices, except in few in
stances, is r. matter of little importance comparatively, and
us the New York offices are nearly all filled the Premier
desires to turn to his real vocation as Secretary of State.
Humors of all kinds are plenty as to who will get mis

Dix, Seymour, and Gadsden have been selected. Other-
may have been, but the fact has not yet leaked out in any
authentic shape. Meantime, many of the expectants are on
the ground, ready to hear their fate.

TUESDAY MOXNING, MAYIT, 185.
We are gratified this morning to ba, able to an
nounce the fact that the Americansuii Union news
papers 3ve been united, and that henceforth they
will be issued in one fornxunderthe name of "TJis
Nashville Union and American" In this arrange
ment the editorial department of the nevr paper
will be under the control of Messrs., Marlikg
andEASTMAir, and the business of the office, will be
managed by Messrs. Toiibett and Church. The
style of the new firm will be Johk, Jx Marli'xgs
It is hoped and believed that this new arrange
ment will meet with the entire approbation of the
democratic party of the State. It is desirable for
the harmony and welfare of the party that there
should be but one central organ, and5 'it ha?r long
been the ardent desire pfllioee who have the mter
esta of the party at heart that a union between the
two jaspers of this city should, ;be effected upon sat-
I isfactory terms.
This union has now been cbrisum-
mated, and it will be the constant aim cf the con
solidated journal to preserve tha.deraocratic party
of Tennessee a unit for all the ere&nurDOses of its

ricari' will be issued upon an enlarged, sheet Q'o
the advertisingriendsof the two papers, this con
solidation will be highly advantageous. Both
journals have hitherto enjoyed a large and. steadily
increasing circulation. This union of the two sub
scription lists gives to the consolidate journal a cir
culation doubtless superior to that of any journal m

time it has attained a circulation not surpassed, if
equaled, by that of any paper in Tennessee or the
adjoining States. The Nashville American has been
established since and in that time has attained
a wid and substantial circulation. The consolida
tion of the twtfpapers thus furnishes the best pos
sible guarranty that the new arrangement will be of
inestimable advantage to the advertising friends of
The new paper will be sent to all the subscribers
of the Union, and all advertising and subscription
contracts existing will be completed by the new
firm. Those who are indebted to the Union for
advertising and subscriptions to the 15th of May,
1853, will settle with Church & Marling, it being
a part of the new arrangement that each office shall
collect all its due3 and pay all its liabilities. All
dues-to the office from tho 15th of May will accrue
to the new firm. The new firm will open an en
tire new set of books, dating each subscription from
the loth of May, 1853.
The subscribers of the Union will pardon us for
urging upon them the absolute necessity of settling
up their due3. "We must close up our old" business.
All those indebted to us should at once remit the
money by mail, at our risk. All overpayments will
be properly credited on the new books. Those
who remit by mail will be charged the advance
rate, $2 50 per annum for the Weekly, and $5 00
per annum for the Tri-Wcekly. All accounts not
settled in this way by the latter part of 'June will
be made out and placed in the hands of agents for
collection, cliarging, in all cases, $3 per annum for the
Weekly. Wo shall have to pay these agents 20 per
cent for collecting, and if our subscribers, by neg
lecting to forward their dues by mail, make it ne
cessary for us to employ agents, they must, there
fore, pay the commission. We give our friends due
notice that thi3 rule will bo inflexibly adhered to.

opposition will organize on other ideas promising
a high tariff where protection is popular a low
tariffin, free-trade communities vast expenditures
for internal improvements by means of river and
harbor bills or land distributions or strict con-
struction and economy, as the occasion
sxk'uggie. This was the course which
pursued after its overthrow by General Jackson,
and it is the natural course for it to pursue, no mat
ter what name it assumes. As long as there are
men who distrust the people, who fear equality,
and wish to be made rich by legislative enactments,
so long will there be a feeling of bitter and relent
less hostility to democratic principles, which will
scruple at no artifice to make itself felt This mat
ter should be understood, for the time has not come
for the lion and the lamb to lie down together.

THE MICHICAN RAILROAD CASE..
Since tlie late terrible collision Ucur Chicago, the
following regulation h&a been adopted for the gov
ernment of conductors and engineers on the Mich
igan Southern and Northern Indiana Rrailroad:
Office of the M. S. & N. I. R. R. )
Chicago, April 28, 1853. j
Every engine, with or without a train, must be
brought to a full stop at every railroad crossing on
jj the line; and the conductor of the train, or the fire-
man employed on the engine, must go forward to
$, the crossing, and give notice that the way is dear be-
lore the tram or engine is allowed to pass over it.
Jos. H. Moore, Sup'fc
This is an excellect regulation, and if adpotedand
enforced on the railways generally of the United
States, would entirely do away with the class of
accidents to which .it refers. But collisions of that
particular character are very few, and this regula
tion would do but little towards preventing the aw
ful scenes that are now so common on tho railroads
of this country.
The States generally, or the Congress for them,
must pas3 stringent laws upon the subject of rail
way movements, and enact severe penalties for the
violation or tne ruie3 prescnoeu in tnese laws, or
there will be no security for life while travelling.
t. !! . . . . .. , ..9
Jt will not answer to trust this matter to the jus
tice and mercy of railroad companies. Nor will
. fines suffice. Such a reckless trifling wiith life must
be declared a crime of the highest kind, arid bepun
ished as such.
Then, but not tjll then, will accidents like those
which have so recently occurred on the Michigan,
New Tork and New Haven, and Erie Railroads,
cease. Louisville Courier.
