GEN. WM. B. BATE,
Of Davvhon Cbunty., -
A self-made mtn; rich in literary attain
ments ; true and tried upon the fields of Mex:
ico and" in the war between the North and
South ; liberal in purse and heart ; modest
and brave; untarnished in eharactcT; the
ante great man under all circumstances,
' whoso- modest ambition has , never rooted
out a single virtue of his great heart; who
never did a deed cr uttered a word we are
ashamed of, and who is the nominee of the
Democratic party in convention assembled
for the purpose of harmony. . .
Triumphant Democracy. ;
TVe arc happy to be able this week to
send to the Home Journal readers most
' glorious news : from the ' Buckeye
State." Just think of Ohio going dem
ocratic by over 30,000, .and a gain, too,
of nine Congressmen, besides a Demo
cratic Legislature I ! Even Democrats
are surprised. .;. Why; sirs, - we
.have come tx once more believe
in signs!! ji Many years since we had to
abandon our happy t belief' that the
beautiful rainbow was an evidence that
the world ' would never be drowned
again. In fact, our reasoning influenced
us to-doubt if the world was ever
drowned and to regard as truth the as
sertion of smart men that such a thing
was impossible. Hence, we lost faith
in all signs, except the beautiful stars
the "poetry of Heaven," which bespoke
to us the majesty of God. - But now our
incredulous heart is drawn to believe
that the brilliant celestial phenomenon
of the East, commonly called a comet
is a sign that the Republican party is
going to ruin that the "bloody shirt"
talk which "has kept it in power so long
is about played out, and that ihq Demo
cratic party, with "Free Trade and a
Tariff for Revenue only" upon its" ban
ner, will hereafter rule. The astrono
mers tell us the comet's nucleus has di
vided into several parts. .We think
one part has struck in Ohio. The other
pieces will strike in Indiana, New York
. and Pennsylvania. There is no mis
' take about the present political drift
the very comet indicates it. The comet
is not. going to fall into the eun and blot
the world from existence.' ' It is a sign
to Radical rule that it can rule no long
erthat the hatred engendered by the
"war must cease and Democracy come in.

R. B. Hoodj of East Tennessee,
a member of the Bolters' Executive
Committee for the State, and one of the
most influential supporters of Fussell,
has v written, a letter to Gen. W. H.
Jackson, the Chairman, in which he
' says : " I am opposed to the Republican
party and its principles and anxious to
use any influence I may have to defeat
the Republican party.. After mature
deliberation I have concluded that my
action in supporting Mr. Fussell ' for
Governor can only aid the Republican
party. , I have, therefore, concluded to
support Gen.- Bate for Governor, and
help in my bumble way to restore the
Democratic party to its - rightful power
in the State." .. . :" -

Discontent and Duty.
A good many people spend all their
life hunting for a place in this world
that they were never intended to fill.
They never settle down to anything
with any sort of. restful or contented
I feeling. What they are doing now is
not by any means the work that is suit
ed to their abilities. They, have a sun
ny ideal of a very noble life which they
would like to reach, in which their pow
ers vould have free scope, and where
they could make a very bright record,
But in their present position they can
not do much of anything; ;and there is
little use to try. ' Their -life is a hum
drum and a prosy outline, and they can
accomplish nothing Teally worthy and
beautiful. So they go on discontented
with their own lot, and sighing for an
other; -' and while they sigh the years
glide away, and soon they will come to
the end, to find that they have lost ev
ery opportunity ofdomg anything wor
thy of a rational - being on the passage
to eternity. The truth is, one's voca
tion is 6orae far-off possibility. - It is al
ways the simjUe round of duties thattlie
passing hour brings. No day is common-place
if we only had eves to see its
splendor. There is n0: d tit y that comes
to our hand but brings us the possibili

English paper and handed to us by Mr.

" Arlington-house, April 5, 1852.
My dear Son : I am just . in -the act of
leaving uome ioriew xnexiuu. xu.y juuc
old resriment has been ordered to that
distant region, and I must hasten on to
see that they are properly cared for. I
have but littlo to add in reply to your
tetters of March 26. 27. and 28. Your
letters breathe a true spirit of frankness;
they have given myself and your moth
er great pleasure. You must study to
be frank with the world ; frankness is
the child of bravery and courage. Say
what vou mean to do on every occasion
If a . friend asks a favour you should
grant it, if it is reasonable ; if not, tell
him plainly why you cannot, xou will
wrong mm and wrong yourselt by
equivocation of any kind. JNever do a
wrong thing to make a mend or keep
one: the man who - requires vou to do

so is dearly purchased at a saenhee
I appear to others what you are not. If
J you have any fault to find with any one
I tell him, not others, ot w hat you com
plain: there is no more dangerous ex
periment than that of undertaking to be
one thing before a man's face and an
other behind his back. We should live,
act, and say nothing; to the injury of
any one. : it is not oniy oesc as a mat
ter of principle, but it is the path to
peace and honour. . In regard to duty,
let me, in conclusion of this hasty letter,
inform you that nearly a hundred years i
ago there was : .a day ot remarkable
gloom and darkness, still known as the
dark day; a day when the light of the
sun was. slowly extinguished-, as it by an
eclipse. The Legislature of Connecticut
was in session, and as its members saw
the unexpected and unaccountable
darkness coming on, they shared in the
general awe and terror. It was sup
posed by many that the last day the
day of judgment had come. Someone,
in the consternation of the hour, moved
an adjournment Then there arose an
old Puritan Legislator, Devenport, of
Stamford, and said that if the last day
had come he desired to be found at his
place doing, his duty, and, therefoie,
moved that candles be hrougnt in so
that the House could proceed with its
duty. ', There was quietness in that
man's mind, the quietness of Heavenly
wisdom and inflexible willingness to
obey present duty. Duty, then, is the
subliniest word ii our language.. . Do
your duty in all things like the old Pu-
ritan. ".. I ou cannot - do more : - you
should never, wish to do less. Never let
me or your mother wear one gray hair
for any lack of duty "on your part.

THE FIFTY t AH D FOUR.
From the Chattanooga Democrat.
It is amusing to witness the wry faces
which those of the bolters are making
who attempt to escape from the predio
anient in which their unwarrantable
course now places them when viewed
under the'electric light of their pastrec
ord on the. estate debt question, lnlo8
after the 50-4 bill had passed the Legis
lature, there is not a man of them but
who urged upon the people the accept
ance of that basis of settlement, notwith
standing the fact that that measure con
templated the forcible adjustment of
more than half the debt granting that
an offer of acceptance had jcome from
the number of creditors who at the time
it was said, had 'signified their willing
ness to-take that figure. . At that time
it was perfectly right ,,to make a propo-
sai, scaling tne aeot xo tne pouanoiaers.
There was nothing wrong about it then
Now, however, the same men are howl
ing themselves hoarse with the baseless
try of. repudiation,, when the party of
fers to settle at figures that will be bet
ter for all concerned. They enter upon
a warfare against their party, alleging
their adherence to a principle as a mo
tive cause, when an investigation dis
closes the fact that the last man of them
stood upon a platform not a whit more
honest than ' that which they have ar
rayed themselves. lhey speak lustily
for State honor, ! and denounce Demo
crats as . repudiators, when they them
selva, are - standing on a platform that
must inevitably, should its provisions be
carried out, result in the repudiation o
iwo-nuus oi ine enure aeot. lhey ar
rogantly rssume to, be the only honest,
progressive men in the party, and for
no other reason than that they failed to
control the Uth ot June convention in
behalf of their favorite leaders.
When they were for 50-4, they were
the State-credit men ; w hen they were
fur the do-nothing policy of John V.
Wright, they were the State-credit men:
when they were the supporters of the
100-3 act,5 they were the State-credit
men ; and now, adopting the trick set
for them by the Kepubhcans, they are
also the btate-credit men.
ueiaci oi tne Dusiuess is, iney are
iropracticables; "they are insurgents
without just cause, and they would not
have submitted to anything that the
party would have proposed.
In answer to these charges they point
to the sky-blue back-ground and the
empty jug, and go on with their vain
glorious assumption or all that is true
and good. They havo stood obdurate
ly upon each of the several platforms
which they have adopted, and with the
same assurance which they now display,
claimed" to be standing on the only hon
est principles. -
The flexibility of their principles is
only exceeded by their "cheek." and
from present indications their strength
in the State will ' be evidenced by the
smallest jvote" for Fussell that was ever
cast in the State at any time for a can
didate for Governor, , , 7.
The city authorities of Nashville have

The House When Alone.
When the house is alone by itself, in
experienced persons may believe that it
behaves exactly as it dees when there
are people in it : but that is a delusion,
as you - will discover, if vou are left
alone in it at midnight, sitting up for
the rest of the family : at this hour its
true disposition will reveal itself.
To catch it at ita-best, pretend to re
tire, put out the gas or the lamp, and
go up stairs. Afterward, come, down
softly, light no more than one lamp, go
into the empty parlor, and seat yourself
at a table, with something to read
No sooner . thin vou have done so
than . you will hear a little chip, chip.
chip, along - the top of the room a
small sound, but persistent. It is evi
dently the wall-paper coming off: and
you decide, after some tribulation, that
if it does come off you can t help it, and
go on with your book.
Ag you eh who your dook in your
hand, you . begin to be quite, sure that
some one is - coming down stairs
Squeak squeak squeak I What fol
ly! lhere is nobody up there to come
down: but there no, it. is on the
kitchen stairs. Somebody is coming
bqueak snap! , . Well, u it is a rob
ber, you might as well face him. : You
get the poker, and stand with your back
against the wall. Nobody comes up.
finally, you decide that you are a
goose, put the poker down, get a maga
zine, and try ta2Sa. .
.There, that's 'the door. You heard
the lock turn! They are coming home.
You run to the door, unlock and unbolt
it, and peep out. . Nobody there 1
.But, as you , linger, the door lock
gives a click that makes you jump.
By daylight neither lock nor stairs
makes any - of these noises unless they
are touched or trodden on.
You go back to the parlor in a hurry,
with a feeling that the next thing you
know something may catch you by the
back hair : and you try to remember
where you left off. -
Nov. it is the table that snaps and
cracks and snaps, as if all spiritualistic
knocks were hidden in its mahogany.
You do not lean on it heavily, without
this result; but it hdgeta you, and you
take an easy chair and put the book on
- Your eyes wander up and down the
page, and you grow dreamy i when, ap
parently, the book-case fires off a pistol.
At least a loud, fierce crack comes
from the heart of that piece of funiture
so loud, so fierce, that you jump to
your feet, trembling. -.
xou cannot stand tne parlor any
more. v You go up stairs.
No sooner do you get there, than it
seems to you that somebody is walking
on the roof. If the house is a detached
one, and the thing is impossible, that
makes it all the more mysterious... "
Nothing ever mourned in the chim
ney before, but something mourns now.
There is a ghostly step in the bath
room. You find out afterwards that it
is the tap dripping, but you do not dare
to look at that time.' ' ' i
And it is evident that there is some
thing up the chimney you . would not
like to ask what;
If you have gas, it bobs up and down
in a .. phantom ...Tdfopa. If youv have a
lamp, it goes out in a blue explosion.
If you have a candle, a shroud plainly
enwraps the wick and falls toward you
- The blinds shake, as if a hand clutch
ed them ; and finally, a doleful cat be
gins to moan in the cellar. You do not
keep a cat, and this finishes you.
You pretend to read no longer ; and
sitting with a towel over your head and
face, and bearing something below go
"shew, shew, shew, like a little saw,
you believe in the old ghost stories.
Ten minutes afterward the bell rings;
the belated ones come home ; the lights
are lit; perhaps something must be got
out to eat. People talk and tell where
they have been, and ask you if you are
And no stairs creek. .No step is
heard on the roof; no click at the front
door. Neither' bookcase .nor table
cracks. The house has on its company
manners only yu have found out how
it behaves when it is alone. f .Lx.
