FRIDAY, APEH 24, 1857.'
Kicking: (lie Dead.
The ridiculous inconsistency and insin
cerity of tbe democratic press in sneering
at the alleged weakness of the American
party, is well illustrated by their own
course. They liave all announced over and
over, both before and since November, that
the party was dead and buried, that its
obseqnie8 had been performed by a mere
handfulf of mourners, that its memory
would scarcely survive "beyond a' Wed
nesday," and that the rery few who still
claim for it a vitality, were either lunatics
or mischief-makers. This indeed, has taken
the place of all argument (if we may haz
ard an admission that the fustian and soph
istry and denunciation which has been used
ia worthy of being called argument) against
its support by the American people. This
was the great and ceaseless cry against
Fillmore, and we doubt not, it will hold a
conspicuous place in the approaching can
vass in Tennessee. If it can be successful
ly and thoroughly impressed upon the peo
ple that the black republicans hare deter
mined to sweep down upon us with all the
fury and destructiveness of a Vandal storm,
and that the American party is powerless
that our homes will be pillaged, and our
country made desolate; and that in the
democracy alone rests the power to resist
the barbarian legions of the North, their
highest ambition will be more than satis
fied. The "no chance" humbug has proved
itself powerful it is the beginning, middle
and end of their logic for their rhetoric
they resort to abuse and the slavery ex
citement. In this department their minds
are richly stored with images of bloodshed
and negro supremacy. Still they insist
that we are dead, and that we arc buried
so deep that "the hand of resurection
shall never reach us." The awkward exe
cutioner of the Union and American, prom
ised sometime since, that, inasmuch as
we still claimed tome life for the par
ty, he would "cut its hesid off again."
We presume he thitiks he has per
formed that work, though we are free to
confess we have had no experince of the
blow which wrought the deed. But in the
name of all charity, magnanimity, respect,
and common decency, why kick and spurn
and maltreat a dead carcass ? How often,
pray, is it necessary, according to your
ideas of mortality, to kill the object of your
hate? How many lives are necessary to
appease you? Do you famish, and are un
able to quench your thirst? Luckless Tan
talus 1 Have you no Iolaus to sear, with
burnincr iron, the wounds as the heads of
this Hydra are taken off? Most unfortu
nate Hercules !
Away with all this cant about weakness.
Under the most discouraging circumstances,
under every disadvantage, under the con
stant fires of two foes, equally bent upon
our destruction during the last Presiden
tial contest, we polled nearly a milium of
stout-hearted, full grown, national, native
American citizens. With the proud motto,
" God and our Country " erablazened upon
our banners, what is there honorable and
patriotic, we cannot perform 1 We are
6trong, and never stronger than tolay
strong in principle, strong in purpose.
Nothing save false issues or a national de
generacy can prevent the final triumph and
recognition of our principles. The cry of
weakness and no chance was raised about
the ears our Revolutionary heroes. We
reply as they replied : " Sir, I repeat, tee

Palmrnton on American Promptness.
The British Premier, in a speech made
after the recent elections in England, in
which he triumphed, took an opportunity of
complimenting the conduct of our naval of
ficers for their conduct in the collision with
the Chinese, and of holding it up to national
emulation as a spirited example. The follow
ing is an extract from his remarks. We
wish it could be said, with truth, that our
government is always as prompt, as were
our naval officers in the Chinese waters, to
protect the rights of American citizens:
We are often told to look to onr cousins in
the United States as models of conduct, and
there are some thinirs in which they might just
as well look to ns (a laogh); but if we beg .f

The Proposed Southern University
We republish below from the Union and
American an appropriate and wejl-consider-ed
article, touching the location of the pro
posed Southern University. The point sug
gested by oar contemporary possesses all
the advantages claimed for it, and more.
As a location for an Educational Institu
tion of the character proposed, too much
cannot be said in favor of it. We do not
know of any place which can begin to com
pare with it; and we are sure that, should
those who are charged with the authority
to make a selection dertermine upon "Ben
Lomovd," neither they nor any friend of
the Institution will have canse to complain
of either the excellence of the choice, or
the enlarged and liberal spirit of the peo
ple of McMinnville and Warren county:
The Proposed Southern tTnlTerkltf Its
Some weeks ago we laid before oar readers a gen
eral view of this great educational scheme, accom
panied by a few remarks of dearly approval. Si o
that time the sutject of the "Southern University"
has been attracting increased attention throughout
.the South and South West. It is a subject which
grow opon hp. the pun upon which it is proposed
to t e founded, is on a scale of such magnificence,
that all the liberal and .enlightened portion of our
Southern commonwealth, is waking up to a dm
sense of its v-ist importance. Tbe people know
that its stabliBhmrot somewhere in our region is
lookrd upon as a fixed fact are beginning to cast
about them, and consult upon the be.t location.
This is as it should be. As il ia intended to become
one of the permanent institutions of the South, one
whose great and good influences are to be acknowl
edged and f.lt long after the noble hearts of its
presi-ot projectors shall have crumbled ii.to dust, it
ia of the utmost importance that its location be
made according to the oi -taus of discretion and
sound judgment. No secliooal pre judices, no narrow-minded
views, should be al owed in tbe least
degree to actuate those who have been entrusted
with this important part of the work. They thoulJ
c6t fieir eyes over tne whole Sourbern section of
our Uuion, and taking a broad view of the entire
firll from whence' tbey are to draw the material
which is to establish and perpetuate this woik,
make their selection at a point which ill evince
no partiality to any one portion, but which will
show to the world their regard for the interrsts and
convenience of all. It ebould manifestly be placed '
at a point easy of access, and one ahio that is cen
tral, in order that the distance may be equalized
among the various Sutes. Tbe attention of our
community at present is especially turned to a point
in the vicinity of McVliiiuville, Tenn., as piobat.ly
combining in itself more real advantages than any
other place in (be State. Many and drcidt d es
cellenties are claimed for it, and from all the most
reliable souices ol information to which we have
bail access, we cannot doubt but that "11 that is
claimed is justly its due. McMiunville being ex
actly ct-ntrl to'iha Southern and Southweel rn
Sutes, bas the father advantage of bcimr, by r.i!
road, the m st easy of access 10 all. There, too,
any decree of tlcvation that m iy bedisir. d can ie
obtained; from the g ntle eminence to the lofty
Ban Lomond," a spot upon which Nature has be
stowed ber richeot and rarrat charm". We peak
by tbe card," when we assert thai this pjiut is un
surptesed. It is situated ia the midst of a tine ag
ricultural country, where tbe proiucts of the eartu
are both good aud cheap, and it is brought into ui
rect connection with Nashville, by radio , from
whence any desired supplies may be obtained in a
few hour-. Lis famed for its beautiful bceiurv,
its pure, invigorating sir, and us abundant supply
of the bed frvenloue wttr. In point of bealiu it
h s no suptiiur uo epidemic ev- r reaches it, and
parents tuay r st ateured that up u this score, al
lead, there is nothing to fear tor their children.
1 ne immense uble-tractot the niom.t.i i is covered

supply of firt-wood wuich appeals lo ne ptit'cctly
inexuausiible, with every tmng to recommend it, we
Uo not know o one solitary disadvantage connected
with this place.
Let ii not be supposed that in thus advooating
this location, we are actuated iu the slightest de
gree by any seifi.-h, or interested motive. Far be
it from us to stoop to such considerations, iu a
matter of such i.nportaut moment to the eutire
South. Il is true that we cannot but see, and it is
as well to candidly acknowledge, that it would be
greatly lo the interest of Nashville to hve t .is
University local, d on this side of the moui.tiin,
but we can freely say thai we are entirely uninflu
enced by aiiy motive exc.pt au earnest desire lor
the sliders and prosperity ol this Institution its. If,

"The States" is the title of a newspa
per just started at Washington, by Maj.
J. P. Heiss, formerly of this place. It is
an independent journal with democratic
sympathies. An honest journal of this
character, one which will dare to speak
the truth boldly and not become a mere
instrument of partisan recklessness, not to
say corruption, ought to be sustained at
the Capital. Democrats and all others
who admire a fearless and free spoken spirit,
ought to at least test the temper of "The
States." The first number, which is be
fore us, exhibits practiced ability. Its ed
itorials are to the poiut, open, candid, its
selections in gbod taste.
On Saturlay afternoon last, about four o'clock, we
were visited by one of the moat violent sioru s of

13 TEE PEOPLE OF THE 8TH COXGEESSIOSAL
FatLow-Cmziss : Iain sgtio before yon a a
candidate for Congress. Having bat a few days
sgo withdrawn from that position, to the hope of
contributing to the harmonious nomination of s
candidate by the Americin party, I bg to offer a
word in exphnstion of my present position. Learn
ing, on my return from Washington, that the name."
of two of my mot esteemed and talected political
friends would be presented, with mine, before
the nominating Convention, which had already
been called st Clirksville, I resolved cheerfully
to sbide (be d cisioa of that body, and warmly
to support its nominee, whoever he might be.
When the delegates assembled on the 14th inst,
unfortunately it was discovered that an honest but
radical difference of opinion existed as to the proper
bases of representation in tbe Convention. Appre
hensive that an attempt to press a decision of tbe
questions which had arisen, might seriously jeopard
the harmony and nnity of the American party, we,
whose name- had been cmvased mutually agreed
to avert the possibility of such a rreult, by st once
wi hdrswing our names from before the nominating
Convention. We trusted that some other name,
commanding the hearty and united support of all
our political friend", would, by general concurrence,
be presented to the public, under such favorable
circumstances as to ensure undoubted success.
Accordingly, after our nimes had been formally
withdrawn, we bad the pleasure to witness the
bestowal of the nomination, as with one voice,
and accompanied with the mot heart-stirring en
thusiasm, upon that distinguished citizen of Mont
gomery, county Mj. Gcstivcs A. IIiNBT.of whose
honor as a man, brilliancy as an orator, and patriot
ism and sagacity as a statesman, Tennessee has had
so much reason to be justly proud. I am sure that
this nomination would have commanded the united
and enthusiastic support of our political frienis
and of none more heartily thin mys 'If and the
worthy and talented gentemen with whom I had
stood io honorable rivalry bi fore the Convention.
But, unfortunately, Maj. Henry, for satisfactory
reasons, which he hai aceined to the public, has
declined the nomination; and the American party
has again been left without a eandidate for Con
In asking for re-elect'on, I have not been un
mindful of the honor which has been don me of
rtpresentirg a district embricing many gentlemen
ho possess as much cluhn, to say the least, as I
do to the suffriges of the people. Proper respect
or the just sentiment of rotation in office, has caused
me to bet-hate to place my name agin before my
friends. But I have as cftm been reminded of'that
other j' St sentiment, thatoffifes are created for the
public good, and not for individual advantage, and
I have felt earnestly that there are meisures of leg
islation, both of a gneril charucter, and of great
local inter.-st to this ais'rict, wl.ich the experience
already acquired wiil enable me, more readily than
a new men ber, to secure the pissnge of at the
next Congress. I have at all times, in respe et to
nominations for office, d-f.rred i'nplii ity to the will
of a majority of my poliihal friends I i thi9 in
stance, a second appeal to a Convention would
inevitaUy be attended with the same dillkultieii, in
determining the prop r bi?U of representation, that
prevented on the 14th inst., a selection between the
then rival candidates for the nomination. It has
been a usage, general throushout the country,
when a representative in Congress has not forf ited
the confi fence or good opinion of his constituent,
for his ptrty to give him, if he desires it, the field
for at least one re-election, without content with
his own political fiends before a nominating Con
vention. That compliment never having been ac
corded to me, I do not complain I have no
right to complain but I confess it would be
gratifying to realize, that a district, and a party
which I have served with so much fil.lity,
bad determined not to withholl a compliment so
generally accorded elsewhere. It is not for me to
dwell upon memories of long and ardent services
with and for those who now compose the great body
of the American pirtjin this district; nor upon the
part I took two years ago in unfurling the Ameri
can standard in the South, and since, in defending
it at the Nilionl Cpifil. I know that bat a small
share of credit is due to my efforts, in carrying this
district at the last ehciion bv the largest Americin
majority given by any district in the State, when,
at the time the disWcts were laid off, it had a smal
ler Whig rnsjonty tlian any Whig district in the
State. Each of many powerful men contributed
largely to give me the honor of that majority ; to
whom I render lie-trt hit acknowledgment, and
hope to mike a more substantial return. I no
take position as a candidate for Congress, and uuder
the difficulties which beset a Convection notnira
tion, I do not see that I cm pursue any more pro-
per couse than frankly to announce it; trusting that
my political friends will, for this term, ynU me the
track as tbe sole American candidate.
