but 100. These facts demonstrate at or.ce the dif
ference between the Irish and all other class of im
migrants. Thus, while the Irish immigration is

The Next Canvass.
The Marjville East Tenncssean of last
week, contains the following article : '
'In onr last issue two of our fellow citizens
were solicited to permit their names to be used
as candidates for representing Blount County
in the next Legislature, and we expect to hear
of many other invitations and announcements;
but while we admit this to be an undisputed
nrivilfffa. we bpcr tava te ttntrfrixt thf fhir

aipearance seven months in advance of the
election eeems rather premature. It will be
the policy of democracy to get as many Amer
ican candidates in the field as possible, magni
fying their individual claims for 6nppor, and
thus creating jealousies and divisions in the
partv.
"Gur policy should be to defeat this strata
gem, by ascertaining not who can obtain
many totet but who would be most likely to
obtain the united totei, or at least a sufficient
number to insure an election. A proper or
ganization of our party is essential to success;
if we play our cards with judgment, the game
is in our hands to lose it, after the recent
victory, would be as unpardonable as mortify
ing, and nothing but carelessuess can produce
such a result,"
There is a great deal of good sense in
this short article. It is obviously the poli
cy of the democratic party to pnt off the
selection of candidates as long as possible.
As our contemporary of the Union and
American expresses itself, itis "bad policy to
"commence manufacturing them too early
" there is danger of an over supply and
" they will be none the belter from having
" been brought so early in the field it
might also have added, such a policy may
prevent the democracy from reaping the
advantages of a multiplicity of caudiJates
on the opposition side. Tlio "Americans
aud Whigs who are determined, if possi
ble, to save the State from the clutches
of the Democracy next summer, can effect
their object only by the exercise of the
greatest prudence in the choice of candid
ates, and the utmost watchfulness and ener
gy in the prosecution of the canvass. They
have no surplus strength to squauder in
disputes amongst themselves, and hence it
is necessary that all who have any aspira
tions for office should be ready patrioti
cally to sacrifice them, when deemed neces
sary for the good of the cause. Unless
this spirit governs, we shall be beaten
badly beaten and the State probably
" firmly fixed in the democratic family."
Tlie Slavery Agitation.
The Buchanan Democracy contended
whilst the Presidential contest was pend
ing, that the election of Mr. Buchanan
would put a stop to the agitation of the
slavery question. But this has not been
the result. The agitation of the question,
in and out of Congress, is still kept up
with vigor, President Pierce having, in his
last animal message, reopened it before
that body, the Democracy and Black Re
publicans gladly availing themselves of his
impolitic course to keep the fires burning.
We do not believe these combatants intend
that the agitation shall ever cease. It is
advantageous to them in a party sense, and
what care they if the people of the one
section are arrayed against the people of
the other in bitter hostility, so party pros
pers ? There is but one way to escape the
dangers which this state of things threatens,
and that is for all the conservative and
peace-loving to unite and take the affairs
of the nation iuto their own keeping.
lyThe Union and American of Wednes
day last, gives place to an ably written
communication proposing the Hon. An
drew Ewixo for the democratic nomination
for Governor. If it be true, as rumored,
that Gen. I. G. Harris is disinclined to
accept the nomination, we presume there
will be no terious opposition to the nomi
nation of Mr. Ewing; and our friends may
as well make their arrangements with this
probability in view. They have heretofore
found Mr. Ewing a " foeman worthy of
their Bteel," and so skilled in the use of the
lauce and battle-axe as to be almost in
vincible. Illinois Uanlte Their dumber and tbeir

Tew persons are fully aware of the means that
wsre emplojsd by Democracy to carry the late
Presidential olection. ' It ia certain that such an
effort was oevsr made in any previous canvass. In
Tennessee, the organization was so complete, and
the efforts so extraordinary, that it is sot likely
that a single vote was lost io the Stats that could,
under any circumstances, have been secured. And
nowhere were the members of the party more un
tiring in their exertions, than in the county of M ,
lying in the eastern division of this State. It is cot
raj purpose, however, to po into a full invsstiga
tion of this matter, but merely to relate an incident
as illustrative of what I have said.
It is known that, in each civil district of the
State, there was a 'committee of three,' whose duty
it was to superintend the interests of the party in
their respective loealities. One of the most active
and vigilant members of these committees, was
Bill Eeddy, who served in the seventh district of
the county already indicated.
Reddy had several men in his employ, all of
j whom, save one, was safe for Buck and Breck.
This one was was Sam Macrary. Sam had always
"fit agin" Democracy, and be could see no rea
son now why he should support bis ancient
enemy. Yet Reddy had set bis heart upon his con
verson, and it must be accomplished at any cost.
Sam was a poor man, and had a large family to
support there was his hope. According to Red
dy's Democratic notions, the almighty dollar woald
accomplish acy thing. lie well knew, however,
that Sam JIacrary'a vote could not be purchased
by a direct offer, yet be imagined that he might
indirectly, with money, assail the Malakoff of Sam's
patriotism.
The first demonstration, therefore, that Reddy
made against Sam, was to employ him in getting
up a barbecue at a democratic mass meeting. For
his services on this occasion, he was rewarded with
six dollars per day. Sam knew very well that he
had not earned the money; yet, being a poor maD,
he thought there could be no harm in receiving it.
Nor can there be any great harm, he thought, in
courting the favor of a party that seems to be so
liberal. Therefore, after be had been paid off, a3
stated, Sam remarked to Reddy, that he felt under
obligations to him for his kindnew, and that he
would be pleased to serve him or his party at any
time. -
"Ton kuow vary wall, Mr. Reddy," sai 1 Sam,
"that I have always fit agin' Democracy that I
was always faithful to the reglar old llu. Lawaon
White Whig party while it bad an exisUn ;e; but
as to my beiu' a no uothiu' the tbiug's o-pof Bi
ble. As a man, Mr. Fillmore will do, but what's
the use of votein' for a feller, when he has no
chauce ?"
This was enough. Reddy at once took Sam by
tke bund, and expressed himself as never having
doubted the course that he would take wheu the
interest of his couutry demanded bis servie es. Yet
the more fully to bind him, Sam was immediately
dispatched with a note to bo less a persons ge than
the High Priest of Democracy for all the ' digena'
lyiug round about the locality alluded to in the
commencement of this article; and though the d;s
tance that Sam had to bear this note was loss than
a mile, he was mounted upon one of Redd y's best
horses aud furnished with sundry pieces of small
change, which be would, occasionally, as fce rode
along, take from his pocket, seemingly for no oth
er reason than simply to hear them jingle.
" I wonder," meutally he would say, if theso
can all be the rale grit I They must be I reckon;
the're mighty yaller and heavy. Weill w'tisn the
fit of liberality id on, one thould not sat with his
hands closed."
Before delivering the note, Sam rode several
times around the square of the village in w bich the
High Priest resided, and as he would pas certain
localities, (supposed to be democratic,) he would
about at the top of his voiee fcr Old Buck. He
was particularly vociferous as be passed the Post
(Jfflce, intending, thereby, doubtless to produce a
favorable impression on the High Piieft, who kept
a More at the corner but a few doors off. Yet, as
ha would past) the Hotel where the know nothings
generally assembled to talk over their prospects, a
close observer might have discovered a peculiar
twitching of the eye that indicated something inex
plicable iu bis manoeuvres.
Finally, after having made the tour of the square
some half dozen times, Sam alighted from his pant
ing steed, and, after giviug him in charge of the
worthy postmaster, proceeded to deliver the nott)
intrufted to his care.
After reading it, (which simply contained the
information that the bearer's vote might, by proper
care, be secured,) the Uiyh Priest invited Sara into
a back room, where were assembled several of the
lesser lights of democracy. And as seou as the
post-master could be relieved of the duty of hold'
ing Sam's horse, be was added to the number. They
had all been attracted hiiher by Sam's maaoeuvre
ing sround the square; aud were now closeted a itl
him for the laudable purpose of converting him to
the trus faith.
Though tedious, it would be interesting, to re
late ail taat passed while these democratic patriots
were closeted with the seemiagly penitent know
nothing. Yet we niut forego the pleasure. Let
it suCice, that when Sara hit, he bore about his
person, and otherwise, uumUukuable evidence of
democratic favor. Amongst these indications were,
as Sam would call it, a nice fur'd hat, a pair of
lined and bound sbofs, and something made last to
a line, one end of which Sam held in his band, very
much resembling a borse. In fact, it was a good
chui k of a pony. And in his pockets were vaii
ous papers, bearing the signature, of Uervey So
Ion, Esq-, acting justice of the peace in aud tor the
county and Suu aforesaid. Some of these were
old judgments for debts that had never before been
satisfied.
Those of Sam's old political associates who had,
from the long piaxz4 in front of the Hotel alluded
to, been noticing the proceedings over at High
Priest's coriur, whan tbey saw him laden with so
many evidences of domocraiic favor, exhibited ev
ident signs cf uneasiness. For it must be remem
bered, that the Americans were no less zealous
and eucrgetie in their efforts to sarry the election
than were ths democrats. Consequently, eon
saltation was Immadiately held for the purpose cf
devising means hew best to counteract the iufla
ence that they supposed Lad been brought to bear
against Sam. A plan of action was agreed upon,
yet day after day passed away, and not so much as
a sight of bira could be obtained. Reddy, divining
the course that would be pursued, kt pi Snm em
ployed on btisioeas thai lay quite out of the neigh
borhood, up to the day immediately preceding the
election. Ia fact, it was late in the afternoon of
that day ere be did retura.
&aui bad scarcely time to shaks Lands with the
' old womau' and children, and to enquire iiilo the
condition cf jade, ( in honor to tt.e donor, he
called the pony that bad been presented to Lira, as
we Lavs showu,) before a wesasuger arrived bear
ing the iatctneuce that ths infaut child of bis
friend IUddy was vry uueell, and that Mrs. Red
4j desired that sirs. Macrary should come over
ImojediaUly. Tkis message was sent by Reddy,
kuoeiiug thatif lira. Macrary did roue, Sam would
as certainly come wita ber; and, Laving Lite at bis
ewe bouse, Kaddy thehl no one could reach hiin
not before morning, si least, which would be on
the day ol lis election. And, lo Lis eea mind, Le
Lad arranged aha! further di.'f oiaon should thro
be made of him. -
According to RedJj's expectation, about diuk
Sam and Lis good Udj , mounted epoo Jiidge,wre
sen cooing. I'pcn their arrival ths child was
aid to be soaietUiif vajinr, jci f. ara were ex press
ed la regard to Its aiueiiua. After btiag e-stired

ConvraU'a turned on Loasohold a?ira, childrt n,

right to ibstract the touu mother of th sirk l
fait present, lis ran. Csr the whole catalogue cf
yerbs " that have healin' properties, and told the
compiaints to which each was best adapted. In
the present case she suggested ground ivy tea with
aweetnin' in it. Stating very philosophically, that
'twould certainly do no harm, if it done no good.
Sam lowed, "a few draps of old rye would make it
more active in its operations."
The usual hour having arrived for retiring to
rest, Sam found a bed in an adjoining room, and
being fatigued, was soon asleep. Leaviag the wo
men to take care of the sick, Reddy was about re
tiring also, when, apparently, a stranger drove op
and requested accommodations for the night. As
Reddy was in the habit of entertaining those who
called upon him, the traveller was invited to alight
and come in. Supper was soon prepared, the
horse properly cared for, aud the guest, in due
time, deposited in th room with Sara for the
night.
But what has all this to do with Sam?3 voting ?
Well, it has a great deal to do with it, reader. If
you remember righly, I told you that Reddy kept
Sam out of the way of bis old political friends, up
to this time, fearing that he might be won back to
his first love; aud you must not think that they
would ait quietly down and fold their hands under
such circumstances. Not they. Hence the ap
pearance of the seeming stranger at Reddy's. I
say $ming stranger, for it was, in faet, only a
young man who resided in the aeighborhood, and
who bad volunteered to redeem Sam at nil hazards;
and it was in the way stated that he sought ad'
mittanoe to him.
When Power George, the youth allud:d to, was
left alone with the object of his search, he imme
diately awoke him, and laying off the disguise that
be hadused to deeeive Reddy, made himself known.
He told Sam, at once, the great fears that were felt
on his account, and that he had come to ascertain
whether tbey were groundless or not.
' I am sorry to say, George,' said Sam, 'that it is
even worse, I fear, -than my friends anticipate.
Yes, I am in a scrape. But what is doc e can't be
endid. Bill Reddy tells me that I have act'ly sold
myself to the d d Dimocrats says I wa reg'larly
bought and signed over the day I carrietl t'nat note
down to the old High Priest; and that th.jre'a no
chance for my redemption.'
Perhaps,' said George, 'it's net so bad a 3 Reddy
represents it
'Reekon 'tis,' said Sara; I brought off tco many
presents for't to be otherwise. Dimocrats never
give so much for nuthiu'. Besides, as well as I
kin recollect, I was sorty typsy; and whe n old Sam
hat a leetlc too much on board, there's no tellin'
what he'll do.'
'But said George, 'if you really we re drunk,
Sam, you ought not to be held accountable for
what you did.
'I know it's as you say, George; but then a feller
ortent to make a d d fool of himself. However,
I'm in for it now, and when Sam Macrary once re
ceives the bounty, he never deserts he don't.'
George saw that nothing wa3 to be made ny talking,
so he thought it best to drop the subject. Before
retiring, however, he produced a flas-k Oif 'Cleaves
best," which immediately disappeared the way that
all really good tpirilt should go. The result of
which was that Sam was soon gloriously tight
finally sinking into a profound sleep, from which he
did not awake until about nine o'clock tho follow
ing day, when, to his great astonishment, 2e fouud
himself at the house of his particular friiind, Col.
Calloway Sanders, about eight miles from where he
had retired the early part of the previous i.ight
llow be had been spirited away was more than
Sam tould at first divine; yet, when he came to
reflect on the circumstances connected with Power
George's visit, he had a slight impressiou that his
transposition was iu some way connected with that
event.
'However, soliloquised Sara, 'the wholo affair
seems rather onaccountable; and as a sort of atone
ment for the part that I have played in it, I shall,
tf I'm able to get up to Riceville, ca.-t my vote for
Fillmore and Donelson. The fact is, I've been on
restless ever since I sold myself to that old High
Triest, and I'll not be satisfied ontil I return the
plunder tho old suss givo me. It's true I sorty
Late to see Judge go back, but Sou Macrary could
never die in peace ef he telt himself under any
obligations to a Dimocrat."
Thk Indiaxa and Illinois Fkes Baxks.
The Cincinnati Gazette of tho 19tli says:
The failure of tlie Gramercy and Shawnee
IJanks of Indiana have caused a preat deal of
confusion among our money !eilers, with ref
erence to the Free H.-inks of Indiana, Illinois
and Wisconsin, all of which, just now are look
ed upon with suspicion.
The notes of the following Indiana Banks
were thrown out to-lav: Central a d Farmer
and Mechanics' I5:ink of Indht.apoli-; Tippa
canoe Bnuk, Logans-port; and Krookville Hank,
Brookville. The latter bank, however, wan
by some considered good, and some of th
houses continued to receive notes at par. It
is own?d and managed, we are informed, by
good and re-ponsible- men.
Of the Illinois Bank, the notes of the fol
lowing were thrown out: State Stock Security
Bank at Danvillt; People's Bank at Carmi;
Prairie State Bank at Washington; Kushville
Bank at Rushvilh; Agricultural Hank at Ma
rion; Central Bank at Peoria. The Bank of
the Capitol at Indianapolis, the Exchange
Bank at Greencastle, InJ., and the runners'
and Traders' Bauk at Charleston, 111., are re
ceived with disTust.
What this excitement will lead to it diCi
cuit to say. Ail the Free Banks will scsiaiu a
heavy run, but those that intend to comply
with tho new law and coutinue business will
probably be able to sustain their credit. The
chief cause of ail this trouble lies in the fact
that the owners of the Gramercy and Shaw-
I nee Banks withdrew their bonds from the
Auditor of Stale prior to their failure, leaving
no'hin in the hand of the State otScer to
redeem their circulation.
f,27" II. Clay Trumbull, E-q , has presentod
to St. John' Lodge of Free Masons, nt Hart
ford, Conu., a key stone made from a fragment
of a rock taken from the roins of Kin,; Solo
mon's Temple, at Jerusalem. Tlie Time says :
'The stone is suspended by a link of polJ, re
presenting an arch, attached to a wedge of
the time material, made in imitation of thoso
used by operative masons iu raising ponderous
pieces of stone. Mr. T. made some very hap
py remark oq presenting this stone, and pave
an interesting account of the manner in which
the ruins from which it is taken were disco
vered, lie gave many other facts connected
with the history of the Temple, all interesting
to 'the craft.'
Hf" The eomrnmittee on territories have
agreed to report a bill to authorize the jxople
of Minnesota, to form a constitution and State
government. It will provide for a new censes
of the territory, and give the State one Iie
