t ontrreavional Convention.
The Convention called to nominate an
American candidate for Congress in this
District, meets on tbe 14th of April next.
Cat one county (Montgomery) has yet se:
lected delegates. "We would urge npoft the
remaining connties the importance of act
ing in this matter 'promptly." " The people
should take it up, and see that their voice
is expressed in the selection of delegates,
and not that of a few active men bent up
on carrying ont their own private views
regardless of the wishes of the masses.
This is the proper plan to pnrsnc, if jus
tice is to be done the several aspirants for
the distinguished position.
'The Wild Hunt."
Accounts from every Eonrce in and about
Washington concur in representing the
press of office-seekers as unparalleled. At
no time in the previous history of the gov
ernment, has the crowd of applicants for fe
deral patronage been so great, so persistent
and resolute, so stubborn and inexorable.
Not alone the President, bnt the heads of
the Departments, are besieged from early
dawn to late hours of the uight, by the
hungry crowds that swarm around them,
and attend all their movements. Mr. Bu
chanan bears np under it with a fortitude
and resignation worthy of a much better
cause; but he is sadly in want of rest and
repose. He stands in the midst of the
trumult, as long as he is physically able,
showering npon the shameless and ignoble
multitude, the blessings of office; and then
worn down, retires, but return again, still
nnrefreshed to his labors. He cannot find
a tranquil hour to commune with his dear
est and most valued friends they cannot
gain access to his presence. Already ap
prehensions for his health have gone forth;
and these, it U likely, are not unfounded.
General Cass exclaims in tones of entreaty,
for some of the "firmness of Jackson "; and
Mr. Cobb doe3 not disguise his feelings up
on the subject, having said that, if this
6tate of things.wcre likely to continue three
months longer, he would not hesitate to re
sign at once, and go home. The delega
tion from New York, finding it utterly and
hopelessly impracticable, to gain the Pres
ident's ear, recently held a public meeting,
at Willard's Hotel, for the purpose of ex
pressing their feelings upon the subject of
the Xew York appointments. At this
meeting, a list of its preferences was duly
made, and the Secretary required to pre
sent a copy of the proceedings to the Pres
ident; after which Capt. Uyndcrs addressed
Mr. Buchanan, by adopting the princi
ple of rotation, has not only plunged Lim
Eelf into a vast sea of perplexity, but has
placed in bold relief, the modesty and deli
cacy of feeling which pervade the demo
cratic ranks, upon the subject of seeking
and holding offices.
DUpositlon of I lie Public Lands J uuice
of tbe Old Statu,
Towards the close of the last regular
Session of Congress, our venerable Sena
tor, Johx Bell, introduced a bill in the
Senate, to give to each of the Old States
of the Union, and such as have never bad
grants of land or money from the Federal
government, an amount, iu money, equal
to the value of the lands so granted to
other States. In another column of this
morning's Patriot, our readers will find a
copy of the Bill. We commend it to their
consideration, believing that it will, as it
ought to, secure the general approbation of
the people of Tennessee, irrespective of
party. It will bo 6cen, upon inspection",
that the bill does cot seek to bring about
a general distribution of .the public lands,
uor of the proceeds thereof; but simply to
place the States of the Union, North and
South, East and West, upon a footing of
perfect equality, ia receiving the gratuitows
assistance of the government in their works
of internal improvement. Tbe national Leg
islature has been in the habit, for several
years of making rauuiGccnt donations of land
iu alternate sections, to aid the Western and
Northwestern States in the construction of
their railroads and canals. It is now pro
posed by Senator Bell, to take an account
of tbe lauds so grauted, estimating their
value at one dollar and a quarter per acre,
the usual government price; and having as
certained that amount iu money, to pay to
those States which have never received any
such grants, a similar sum ascertaining
the amount coming to each State, accord
ing to the relative proportion of popula
tion. This is a measure of justice to the
old States, which no one, it is presumed,
will have the hardihood to gainsay. It i3
a justice, which if promptly carried out
would, so far as this State is concerned, be
most opportune and sen icable. Since Ten
nessee has adopted the policy of aiding in
building the railroads projected within her
own borders, and of advaucing means to
the amount of ten thousand dollars per
mile, the proposition of Mr. Bell, would
certainly afford very great assistance to
the State, and by so much, enhance the
general wealth and prosperity of the State.
But we did not purpose an argument upon
this subject ia this place, but desire simply
to call the attention of our readers to this
subject, and to the Bill. !

f Tbe author of this work spent some eight
years amongst the Indian?, doriDg which time
he amused Litnself in taking Portraits of the
principal Chiei, and others of less note, cf nu
merous tribes. The gallery, of Portraits thus
obtained has become somewhat celebrated in
the Eastern cities5, and in Europe, where he
exhibited it. Mr. Catlia appears to have been
qoit as fuccesffal io the use of the pen as of
the brush ; in this forming no exception to the
rule, that a good painter generally possesses
the attributes of a gorrd writer.' Both acqaire
menta in a great degree depend upon a lively
imagination; and-strong perceptive faculties.
In the volumes bffre us, illustrated wi:h one
hundred atid fifty engravings', we have ample
evidences whertby to test the merits of Mr.
Catlin in loth characters. Wo are sure he
will stand the last creditably. " - -
Many of the Indian tribes of North America
are passing away ; most of thera will soon have
lost the distinctive characteristics of their race
from f he abrasion of contact with the Anglo
Saxon. A work of tbe character which Mr.
Catlin has famished the pnblic, must prove
n invaluable contribution to th history of
these tribtP, placing on record as it does, Man
ners and Customs which, otherwise, woald be
traditional only to po-teritj. It is in two

This volume is from the pen of Mis Leslie,

It is an excellent manual for those whose ex
perience has not given them practical knowl
edge of the matters of which she treats.

This is a new Cook, upon an old subject, and
is designed as an assistant to the duties of the

Wc are gratified toobserve that active preparations
are i t progr ss among tbe Americans in Tennessee
for the canvass during the coming summer. We
bid them God speed in the good cause. All around
us we find cheering sins of encouragement, and
reason to believe that, though defeated, t'.ie Amer
ican party of Kentucky and Tennessee is not dis
couraged, but is r. a ly and anxious, are, am de
termined to battle on for the promotion of Ameri
can principles until successhall crown all it j effort?.
These wbo were lately our opponents, even in the
vety hour of their victory, are crushed in spirit and
humiliated at the discovery of the base artifices by
allien they were enahled to triumph over Ameri
canism. 'I hey are already weakened and dispirited,
and feel conscious that another such victory would
bring degradation upou them and utter ruin upon
tlie country. But the American may walk proud
lr among their fellow-men, conscious of having per
formed a pHtiiu'io duty, and gratified to witness
even their opponents forced to acknowledge, be
fore a deceived aud betrayed people, the justice
aud propiielv aud eminent patriotism of the princi
ples and policy of the Ameiicnn party.
We believe that the AmeiL-ans of Kentucky,
than whom a truer or firmer or more devoted band
of patr iots cannot be found, are beginning to arouse
themselves to the importance of the approaching
canvas in this State and to prepare for it. Our
State Council, which will hold i s sersion in this
city on the second day of April next, will bring to
gether a full representation of theputy throughout
the State, and the cauvas here wdl commence im
Wherever elections are to be held it should be
remembered by the American party, that, to win
success aud to make our success permanent, it is
uctuly necessary to bring out as the American can
didates tbe very best men in tbe party for all olli
ces to be filled Let us present to the people suc'i
men for candidates as will convince the natiou of
the superior fitness of Americans to rule our coun
try, and let harmony and concert of action prevail
throughout our ranks.
The American party has never occupied a proud
er position, nor one more full of promise of brilii tnt
suiC'-ss than at present. It Americans now will be
true to th' tuselves, true to their principles, and
true to their country, they will surely b succef s
ful. The skies are brighi with promise, and ii cow
needs but one more earnest, active, united, and de

Btandard and our Union will be tafe. Zot. ,owr.

fcjf The Xew York correpondent of the Char
leston Courier gives a long account of a most strange
story which be alleges to be strictly true. A belov
ed and elderly pastor of oue of the New Yoik city
churches was called upon one nl.'hl by a man who
requested him to goaud cbri.-ten two ot his ch.Uren.
He promptly C miplied. As he was returning hom
be was accosted ly a person who called him by
nm and accused him of i-uing from a houje ol
ll'-laine! Money was demanded of him and in de
fault of pay ing u be was threatened with exposure.
The clergymen took no notice of it for ahile,but
hi step were dogged perpetually till finally it t -can
to wear upon him. Lie told no one, but left
and went to Kurope, thinking thereby to escupe from
bis tormentors. But he was mistaken. On hi re
turn they still puis ed Li n. He r signed his charge
to the aatonisaraeut of bia parishioners, who could
not comprehend the reisoo. He weal to a coun
try village, was slid pursued, sod it is brlievid that
dreading tbe effects of such rrpor is, false theutsh
they were, he actua lr pi I hush money. )'in ly
the rca!s were arrested for some ether villain,
when this whole affair leaked ou', and tbe rlerg)
man Cjiae back to hi church. 'It i iocre lit 1 1 that
