Can the States matte Citixensl ..
The -Union and American of Thursday,
concedes that it is not- politic that the
States should confer upon aliens and others
the rights of citizenship independently of
congressional legislation; that it is FatrsSed
with the provisions of the Constitution of
Tennessee npon this subject, which restricts
the right of voting to citizens of the United
States, i We are glad to chronicle this un
usual manifestation of trne conservatism
and genuine Americanism, on the part of
our contemporary. " That paper still asserts,
however, that the States have the power
to make citizens of aliens, and indeed,' vo
ters cf free negroes-, but declines an argu
ment with us npon that question. We are
not inclined, at this time to press a discus
sion, as there are other issues which are of
much more immediate interest.
- But while our neighbors assume this po
sition, they continue to place U3 in opposi
tion to the Supreme Court, and make this
a matter of fad. We think our neighbors
are themselves, laboring under a mistake
in point of fact. ' The Chief Justice, him
self on a former occasion held the identical
opinions, which we now advocate. There
have been some occasional exceptional ad
judications, but we think, npon a proper
analysis of -all the cases, the decisions of
the Supreme Court will be found, substan
tially uniform. That great light of Araeri
can Jurisprudence, James Kent, is full and
explicit in the denial of this right to the
States; We subjoin an extract from the
opinion delivered by Judge Taxet in the
cases of Smith vs Turner, and Norris vs
Boston wherein he holds a doctrine, diame
trically opposite to the recent dictum thrown
out in the Dred Scott case:
'Itcannot be necessary to say anything upon
the article of tbe Constitution which gives to
Congress the power to establish a uniform role
of natnralization. The motive and object of
this provision are too plain to be misunder
stood. Under the Constitution of the United
States, citizens of each State are entitled to
the privileges aod immnnities of citizens in the
several States, and no State wonld be willing
that another State Fhoold determine for it
what foreigner should become one of its citi
zens, and be entitled to hold lands and to vote
at its elections. For without this provision
anv one State conld have given tbe right of
citizenship in every other Stale; and at aery
citizen of a State it also a citizen of the United
States a single State, without this provision,
might have given to any number of foreigners
it pleased, the right to all the privileges of citi
zenship in commerce, trade, and navigation al
though they did not even reoiue among us.
The nature of our institutions nnder the
Federal Government made it a matter of abso
lute necessity that this power should be confi
ded to the government of the Union, where
al the States were represented, and where all
had a voice; a neoessity so obvious, that no
Statesman could have overlooked it .The artio'e
has Dothing to do with the admission or rejec
tioo of aliens, nor with immigration, bat with
the rights of citizenship. Its sole ol ject was
to prevent one State from forcing upon all the
others, and opon the Oeneral Government, per
sons as citizens whom they were unwilling to
admit as such.
Thus it will be seen that, instead of be
ing in opposition to the Supreme Court, we
are in perfect acc6Td with what was the
deliberate judgment of the Chief Justice
himself. With this, we submit the qnes
Justice te the Old States.
We are gratified to learn from the Rich
mond Whig that the people of Virginia
whigs and democrats, are beginning to
move in earnest on the subject of the allot
ment to the old States of their share in
the oublic lands. The Whiz is of the
opinion that fully two thirds of the demo
cracy of the Old Dominion are heartily in
favor of it. Democratic candidates for the
Legislature are coming out and supporting
the proposition. It is not proposed to
make the question a party test, but a nu
cleus around which all can gather who de
sire justice to be done the State, and to see
the burthens of taxation lightened.
The Whig gives the following extract
from the proceedings of a democratic con
vention of delegates fro'.n James City,
Charles City, and New Kent to show how
the question is beginning to take amongst
the siraon pure democracy:
"The object of the Convention having been ex
plained : .
"Mr. Wm. R. Douglas proposed that a commit
tee of three be selected for the transaction of busi
ness. ' Dr. Thos. Garnet of New Cent moved that the
committee be Increased to five.
"The amendment having been accepted.
"The Chair appointed Dr. Tyler, B. F. Lester,
Dr. Gsroet, B. F. Biggottand R. L. ilenley commit

minated by CoL Rutcliffe.
" Col. Bramley declined.
M. Roane's opinion on the distribution bill was
"Mr. Douglas spoke at some length on tbe sub
ject, advocating distribution, but insisting on tte
couveotiou not making that the teat question, lie
would aupport Mr. Roane, irrespective of bia opin

not force the question; if tbey ahould, be was pre

adherence to tbe Democratic parte, "through thick
and ttin," and said he waa willing, even now, lo

"Dr. Garnet then explained the report of tbe

"Mr. 8. Replied, oue who would refuse this last

"Mr. Douglas cited the names of leading Demo,

were cnwiil:og to accept it.

We bare before mentioned the organi
zation of a live 6tock company in this city,
composed of maay of the leading farmers
and stock-breeders of Middle Tennessee, for
the purpose of importing aud breeding the
superior domestic animals of. the country
In furtherance of the designs of the com-
rany, two Agents started North, in Febru
ary last, furnished with ample means, and
delegated to purchase the best animals that
could be found, suitable to the wants of this
country.- The Agents. report that they
have succeeded in procuring a number of
superior animals,, amongst whicb. are two
Messenger and two Morgan Horses; four,
mares-and seven colts of. these breeds; six
D?von Cattle; a number of Merino and
South-down Sheep ; Essex, Suffolk and Burk
shire Pisrs. ., ' -
These animals will arrive in this city
early in this month,' and it is the intention
of tne Company to have them on the State
Fair grounds, near this city, during the
Spring Fair, which commences on the 7th
of May next. ' 5 1 ' " ' '
' The Company have shown commendable
zeal, for the prompt and energetic manner
in which they have 'taken hold of this en
terprise, and we expect that a beneficial
improvement npon the Stock of the State
will soon result from this importation.
. ISrThe following appeal to the Ameri
can party of Kentucky is taken from the
Louisville Journal. ,It is equally applica
ble to our party in Tennessee, and we ask
oar friend3 in this State to read and con
sider it, as if it had been addressed direct
ly to tbem ';. "'. T;
On Thursday next the American State Coun
cil of Eentncky will re-assemble in onr city.
It will be an adjoorned session of the January
meeting, and we hope to see present earnest,
active, zealous, and wide awake Americans
from every valley and hillaide, from every
county and precinct in the Commonwealth.
There is business of importance to be transact
ed, which requires tbe oooceutrated action aod
untiring industry of the party throughout the
btate. e are confident that a large majority
of legal voters of Kentucky are in favor of
American principles and anxious for the elec
tion of the candidates and the establishment of
the policy of the American party, but we have
been taught by the disastrous result of the
Presidential election no longer to rely wholly
upon the justice of our cause and the numbers
of onr party.
Our friends then were enthusiastic, our pres
ses and ocr speakers were industrious, zealous,
and indefuigable in the discharge of their du
ties, but we depended too much upon tbe ac
knowledged majority of oar party in the 8tate
and tailed to neriect an orgauization by wnicli
the frauds aud electioneering devices of oar
opponents might have been foiled and rendered
ineffectual. They had their vigilance commit
tees at work sedulously in every precinct,
Every doubtful voter, every change, every op
portunity to augment their strength waaregu
larly reported. While we were spending our
time in indiscriminate enrts to rally our
f riends, they were silently working only where
worlc waa needed, aud, as has since been as
certained, the result was sutficienily kuown to
their leaders before the day of the election to
make them confident of 6uccess in the face of
an American majority.
Noihiog is required on tbe partof the Araer
icans of Kentucky to insure them the victory
in the approaching State election and to ren
der their success permanent but a perfect or
ffanization of the party. Personal preferences
6hould every where be laid aside and the best
men in the party placed in the field ss candi
dates. Our friends must be rallied in solid
phalanx in every neighborhood, aud harmony
and concert of action must prevail throughout
our r inks. The Americans of Kentucky are
actuated by high and noble purpose?. They
are devoted to patriotic principles worth fight
ing for or even dying for, and the time is come
for them to show their faith by their works.
It will be the duty of this Council to organ
ize the party throughout the State and to in
fuse into it a spirit which shall render it irre
sistible and overwhelming in every contest
with its opponents. Ibere never was a tune
when tbe condition of the country so greatly
needed, so imperatively demanded the estab
Hhhment of American principles. Tbe clouds
of error with which onr opponents sought to
bide theee great truths from the masses of the
people have passed away. The principles
themselves have . become better known and
understood. They shine like bright beacons
of hope to light a bewildered nation to the
heaven of rest and safety. The majesty of
their truth has compelled the reluctant admi
ration of the bitter opponents of the party, and
an earnest and judicious effort on the part of
their advocates will now insure their perma
The experiences of the recent contest have
taoght our friends to love still more fervently
the troths for which they are contending and
havo taught our foes the imminent dangers of
the foul practices to which they were f rced
to resort. The American party, purged of all
dross and useless particles, now stands firmer,
fairer, and more promising before the people
than atany other period of its existence. JNow
ia the time for action, earnest, ceaseless, inde
fatigable action, until a glorious victory is won
and the policy of the American party perma
nently established in oor State government.
The Candidate for Floater
EniToas or tbi Patriot:
' Gikts: I observed in your paper a short time
since an article transferred from the Clarkaville
Chronxclt urging the fimeea of Usual Maaar, Eaq.,
of Naabvitle, as a suitable candidate for Floater, for
the diatrict composed of Davidson, Robertson and
No nomination, that roulJ be made, woulJ give
more general eatisfaction than thL, especially in this
portion of the district, and from the fact that the
suggestion came from Montgomery county, it is
presumable that ll would meet with a simular fav
orah reception there.
Since the iucepiion of the American party, Mr.
Maney has labored assiduously for its interests, aod
won a well deserved reputation. If entrusted with
the candidacy by bis party, be wool J make a vigor
ous and able canvass throughout tbe entire district,
lie posteaaes m an unusuil degree every qualifica
tion for a successful candidate snd efficient aod trust
worthy representative. A popular address thor
ough information on the topics of the day a high
orJer of speaking ability and a legion of devoted
personal friends will carry him through triumph
The people are for Mr. Maney, and we hope the
Convention will ratify tbeir selection.

" FIGHT. OH THE TRAKSIT.
' ' Saa Jcaic Bit Sua, Msrch , l85? '
News has just been brought ia of a fight on the
Transit. CoL Cajcee came down last nigni wito
forty-five rangers, and eiartedvback this mornm.
Be had reached the jocote roan, wmuu ..wu
from the Transit about half a mile from tne half
way house, aod when about half a mile up tne roao
was fired npon by a hrz boy of the enemy io
ambuoh not less than 400. He was compelled to
retreat, which be did o good order towards this
pUca. After reaching tbe top of the mounuin,
about a mile ana" a half from the plaee of attack,
destroying first a bridge at the loot of tbe moun
tain, he took bis stand and waited for the enemy;
but they did not follow bim beyond the hslf-way
bouse, at which place they stopped, and fired sev
eral volleys into the house. Whether thy killed
any one or not I cannot say. , CoL Caycee finally
reli back to this puce, where be sti.i remainc. uis
loss was two killed, two wounded and seven mis
sing. Of the killed was Lieut. Jno. Franklin. Itia
impossible to tell how many of the enemy were
killed. . . - '
STILL ANOTHER ENGAGEMENT.
Maacn 6. CoL Cavcee report that he, as well
as his picket guard, heard heavy firing list night
about teu o clock, towards Kivas; ne say ne count
ed nineteen cannon shots. Tbe probability is thit
the enemy stUcked Rives list night Four of the
missing men returned to-day. I regret that I have
nothing but bad new to write. Five men came in
to-day and report another fight on the Jacote road.
Capt. Dart, who came in, makes the following re
port: News having been received in Rivas that tbe
enemy were at the Jocote ranch, about 11 o'clock
yesterday morning, the First and Second Rifles, and
a detachment of Rangers, numbering in all about
150 men. uoder command of Gen. Sanders, marched
out of Rivas to give the enemy battle; they marched
very rrpidly, and came within half a mile of the
ranch, which is ten miles from Rivas, about 2
o'clock. The Riflts were halted, while Oen. San
ders advanced with the Rangers to reconnoitre.
After advancing a short distance, they were fired
upon by the enemy; they immediately retreated to
wards the main body, which was immediately iorroea
The enerav advanced very rapidly, and io large
numbers, between 400 and 500; the firing soon be
came general and very rapid, tbe enemy continuing
to advance and trying to surround them; finally
tbe enemy charged tbem with the bayonet. The
Rifles having no bayonents, and most of their guns
beins emDiv. thev cave way and broke in great
disorder. The officers were enable to rally their
men and make them stand. lie mado bis e?cpe
through the bushes while tbe enemy were in full
cbase of our men and attempting to flank them on
each side. Manv. no doubt, being fuigued by
f thir mnid march, were overtaken and killed. Lie
savs that after runnine about six hundred yaras, ne
... .. .,
heard heavy firine for a few momenta, as if they
had made a stand; but tbe firing soon ceased, and
he heard no more.
The enemy advanced in open prairie ground,
and were loosing ten to one until they made the
charge, which they did with extraodinary coolness
He reports Cspt. Thos. Conway killed, and Capt.
Chaa. U Hisrby badly wounded and taken pri.-oner.
He was out all night in the mountain?, and arrived
this afternoon. This is certainly a serious defeat,
and convinces me that without large reinforcements
Gen. Walker can do nothing. The fact is the men
will not fight any more, and these successes but
embolden the enemy and give them greater conn
dence. The idea of theirchargitig bayonets on our
men and routing then? seems almost improbable,
still it is not the less true, and cannot be denied,
now many succeeded in reaching Rivas I do not
know, but as the steamer has not yet arrived, I
may be able to send you further news. What, with
these defeats and desertions, the army will soon be
reduced to a very small number.
ATTACK ON RIVAS.
March 1. Col. Caycee informs me that he re
ceived a letter from Gen. Walker this morning, in
forming hi n that the enemy attacked Rivaaon the
night of the 6th, and that after three unsuccessful
assvults the latter made by their whole fore, they
were repulsed with very great Ijss, Thjy were al
lowed to advance very close to the barricades be
fore a shot was fired, and in the last charge they
were able to fire at least ten guns ainoo them be
fore tbey were able to retire, so that tbeir loss mut-t
have been very great. Gen. Wslker met with no
loss. Also, that Gen. Sanders had returned to Ri

him. One of them says, ''be has made full confes
sion of his sins, and has again been received into
the bosom of his former political mother." There is
not one word of truth in the assertion. We have a
direct assurance from one of Mr. Eusii-'s most inti
mate personal and political friends, that he woul 1
not for any consideration dexrrt tbe party or the
principles for which he so manfully fought. For so
young a memoerof Congress, he has already achiev
ed a great national reputation. Uis cons'ituents
ill send I im berk to Washington almost by accla
mation. Zo. Jour.
A Good Osb. Dr. Magoon, recently in a
lecture on "Mind yoor Business," tells tbe
fullowiog good one :
A yoiiog man went from New York city to
the West, where he commenced business on
hia own account, and married. Uis friends in
the city were interested in his welfare, and
when a merchant was about to journey to the
place where the young roan bad located, be
was requested to visit the emigrant, and as
certain how he lived, what sort of a wife he
bad chosen, his prospects, Sec. Accardingly,
the New Yorker ascertained the residence of
bis young friend, and called npon bim qniie
early in the morning. lie fmnd bim in a
small, neat cottage, just taking his breakfast.
The introduction of the New Yorker to bis
wife was quite off-hand and unceremonious
and he was requested to be seated and partake
of the morning meal. The young wife had
prepared the steak, liscnit anil coffee with her
own bands, and for a table had used her knead
ing board, over which a napkin was spread,
and the board was placed on her lap. The
New Yorker declined a seat at table and took
his leave. On making his report to I.U New
York friends, as to how he found Lis young
frieud living, he described the stjle as " mag
nificent I" and for the explanation of the su
perlative lie eaid, that were he the owner of
the young man's firiJtnre, he would cot take
tea thousand dollars for the legs of his table!
