passed the last session of the Brazilian Legislative
Assembly raising the eiport daty on coffee from
9 to 1 1 per ceot, will be put into execution on tbo
1st of January next." We are also informed that
in consequence of the increasing cost of labor the
shipping houses of Rio de Janeiro find them,
sdres obliged to increase the charge of shipping
expenses, and that it will be probably advanced af
ter the 1st January from about 180 rials per bag to
210 rials.
.... The Baltimore American of the 7th says:
" The mild weather of the past week is rapidly re
moving the effects of the previous severity of the
winter, and already business is beginning to revive,
whilst the bope that it will soon resume its full ae
tivity grows eTery day more bouyant. The soft
weather has to far weakened the ice in our harbor
and bay that the determined effort now making can
scarcely fail to open onr port and enable the com.
mercial transactions delayed by the embargo to be
again prosecuted. From the West we also have
intelligence of the probable resumption of navi
gation upon the Ohio and other great river ohan-
. nels of trade. It is not probable, if the obatrus
tions from these rivers and our harbor are removed,
that a general or permanent freexe will occur again
. at thia late period of the winter, and a revival of
business all over the country will ensue. The
Spring trade will make an early commencement,
our hotel fill up with customers from the South and
West, and the city present a business activity in
strong contrast with the dullness of the present
month. The weather yet continues favorable to
, the possibility of such an agreeable state of affairs
and until it changes we have a right to the pleaa"
ot anticipation."

or sandal wood, in one of the public cemeteries,
the ashes carefully gathered and deposited with
the embalmed heart iu a bronxe urn. Five copies
of tht leading daily city papers, containing an ac
count of the whole proceedings, are likewise di
rected to be deposited ia the urn, which is then to
be hermetically sealed, and taken to the New York
lfuscum. In the midst of the excitement created
by these proceedings, the work is to be published.
.For its circulation $10,000 are appropriated,
'10,000 more for distribution among the city offi
cials and leading politicians of all parties, who arc
to receive from (25 to $100 each for assisting io

SATURDAY, FEB. 14, 1S57.
Ia our previous remarks upon this sab-
juct we hare endeavored to impress upon
the citizens of Nashville the great impor
tance to them individually and to the fu
ture prosperity of our city, of having abun
dant supplies of. cheap coal. We" have
endeavored, also, to direct their attention
to the proper qnartcr xvhence to draw' these
supplies. We hope we have, to a small
extent, at least, succeeded in our aims.
We propose to pursue the subject farther
this morning, with a view to sum np the
facts "which show that the Rowena coal
mines possess advantages over all others in
connection with the Nashville and other
Cumberland River markets:
1st. They are situated below the falls or
shoals, at a point to which steam boats fre
quently ascend, and from which coal can be
sent down on an ordinary boating tide.
2nd. The obstructions to the navigation
of the river from Rowena to this point are
so trifling, that the annual losses by sink
ing and other river casualties, do ' not
amount to more than one per cent upon
the cost of the coal delivered at the wharf.
3d. Timber is plentiful and labor cheap,
making the cost of boats much less than at
the mines above the shoals.
4th. Accessible to steamboats, the or
dinary coal boats can be dispensed with,
and steam tugs and barges substituted.
5th. The cost of mining and of provisions
is less, supplies of the latter being cheap
and abundantly produced in the neighbor
hood. . .
Cth. These advantages conbined place it
in the power of the owner. of the Rowena
mines to deliver coal here, at about five and
a half cents per bushel; and it must be borne
in mind that this coal is of a very superior
quality for burning in grates, for making
gas, and for blacksmithing purposes.
Now, the question for the citizens of
Nashville to decide is "will they secure for
themselves cheap coal by taking stock
in the Compauy which it is proposed to or
ganize, or will they suffer the mines to be
come a monopoly?" It is very evident that
with the ability to laud coal at our wharf
at five and a half cents per bushel, the owner
of these mines can undersell all other deal
ers, drive them out of market, and then
fix his own prices, were he disposed to do
so, which he is not; but, on the contrary,
desires that the community and himself
shall be mutually benefitted. Will our cit
izens take 6teps to share in the blessings
and benefits which can be derived from this
source? We believe they will.".
The basis of organization of the proposed
company is Ycry liberal, and twenty-five
thousand dollars of stock paid in is all that
will be required to connect the mines by
railroad with the river, get out the coal,
construct the boats and have an abundant
supply here next fall. And at 15 cents a
bushel, a dividend of 50 per cent, can be put
into the pockets of the stockholders the
first season. In the course of a day or
two the basis of organization will be sub
mitted to the examination of those who
may wish to inquire into it, and books
opened for the subscription of stock. In
the meantime we trust those whose interests
arc identified with the growth and pros
perity of Nashville will prepare to show by
their works their appreciation of the bless
ings which cheap coal will shower upon us.

- Edilon of the KathvUU Patriot: The friends
of the American Party must not disagree in select
ing their candidates. To avoid thia they should
be frank. Xor should motives be impawned but
each shoulJ allow another to have acted upon
some proper ground, and from a patriotic intent..
A writer under the signature of "a citizen ot
Rjbertsoa" supposes that no person shoal i ba
brought forward as a candidate to succeed Gn.
Z'jllicoffVr in Congress, till the General should de
cline a nomination. Now the principle upon which
the writer proceeds is not admissible. " It Is claim
ing a life estate in the oC3c9. It might be discour
teous to push forward another, the incumbent
having demeaned l imself well, as is with pleasure
conceded to Gen. ZjIlicofTer. Yet should it tarn
out that the Genera'., about the time of his Uat
election, left a distinct impression upon thi mindj
of many of his friends, that he would not desire a
reelection, which impression has not been removed
by bim, and in consequence his friendi have turned
their thoughts opon other men; then to solicit an
other to become a candidate in his place, would
not be discourteous. The General knows of course
how this is.

A Mockery Simonton Cold Weather
"Washington, Jan. 23, 1S57.
Yon have undoubtedly learned of the pro
ceedings in the House yesterday and the day
previous, relative to the investigation now in
progress. The committee have found it im
possible to proceed, because tlu witnesses de
ny the power of the committee to extort from
them confessions of corruption. To remedy
this evil, the House has passed a bill making
it a felony to refuse to answer any question,
perjury to answer falsely, and a crime to re
fuse to produce any paper demanded by the
committee. It is a very arbitrary law, and
but for the exigency of the occasion, the ter
rible necessity, its enactment would be of
questionable propriety. But bo important is
it to purge Congress of the base corruption,
that I feel willing to justify any measure
which will remedy the evil and restore the
purity of the National Legislature. The com
mittee are in earnest and Messrs. Orr and
Davis intimated that important discoveries
had been made.
Simonton, the correspondent of the New
York Timet, has been committed to prison
for contempt, so say the proceedings and the
newspapers; bat it is a mockery. He is at
large, attended by an officer of the House. He
is fed, warmed and watched by Uncle Sim
keeps np his correspondence, ii supplied with
everything he wants and goes wherever he do
sires. If .this is to be the punishment of con
tempt, who wonld not willingly, during these
hard times, oommit contempt for the sake of
the punishment. I have no desire to be a crim
inal, but I should have no objection to being
warmed, fed and paid a per diem by Unole
Sain, and I take it that he will soon have a
dozen or more such criminals, for Washington
is just now full of hangers-on, who wonld
gladly refuse to answer for the sake of being
put in a similar prison. The only inconve
nience consists in always having company,
and, perhaps, not agreeable company. He
should have been sent to j -i.il and led on "pork
and beans," genuine old fashoined jail fare,
such as ordinary criminals are fed upon, such
as a man who had etoleri a stick of wood to
keep his children warm, or a loaf of bread to
feed his starving family, would have been fed
upon; hot this notoriously and admitted cor
rupt loafer dignified as a Congressional pris
oner, (applied with all tht, luxuries the market
will afTord and treated by the Tresideut with
as much favor and tenderness as if he was a
If the House is in earnest in the investiga
tion, it should punish those who are guilty of
contempt, and not honor them. As it is, it is
a mockery and will end in a Gizle, aud ail the
energy of the committee will cotne to noaght.
The "oldest inhabitant" says this is the cold
est winter experienced here for & century or
more. The Tenenable old gentleman is per
fectly reliable and never mistakes any circntn
stance, and, of course, it is true. But, laying
joking aside, it is Intensely cold. We are
blocked up, no mails, no news, no excitement,
no arrivals and no departure. We can't hear
from Bladensburg, only five miles di.-Uut, and
can gel little else to eat but herring and beef
very good fire for modest people.
