The Cnwn American of Saturday last con
tains the following letter from Hon. Andrew
Ewisg, in response to tit letter of the Com
mittee appointed by the Clarksville Conven
tion to inform him of his nomination for Con
gress: Nashville, May, 15tb, 1857.
Gjcxtlihek: Your kind letter apprwing m of
my nomination a a candidate for Congress) in this
District by the Di roocratic Convention lately hM
at C!arkvill, wrs received on yeetrrdty. This
nomination was a tnattT of tarprise to me, and af
fected me ith mingled emotions of pleasure and
fegret. It U always pleasant to receive such hih
evidence of the kindness and partiality of thoe
with whom we are connected by uncial and politi
cat ties, yet it i pin!ul when it is impossible to re
spond to the wishes of oar (riend?.
It it wholly impossible for meat this time to l"ave
home either for a canvas or service in Washing
ton, without a total abrogation of my duties and
obligations to family, client and those connected
with me In busins-s. There may be times and oc
casions when the duty oft mm to his country be
comes paramount and then Li" pathway is clear,
but he cannot on ordinary ccasiors disregard his
social, domestic and conventional responsibilities
without justly incurring the cenmre of those to
"bom he is bound and the disapprobation of his
wn conscience. It has been for some time my
conviction that it was my duty not to be a candi
date fur Congress t this time, and since the ad
journment of the Democratic Convention at Nash
ville this determinaiiun has been decisively and
freely announced to all those who have conversed
with me on the sulject. I trust, then fore, that no
action of mine has nihled the Convention and in
duced them to act upon any supposed state or inde
cision on my part. If so. it would add much to
the regret with which your nomination is declined.
I earnestly hope that some worthier champion of
the !) mocratic pirty will be selected as our can
didate in this district, and that he will lead us on
to a triumph ml conclu.-ion. If so, he shall re
ceive my warm support and best hopes for his sue
eee. With renewed (hanks to the D -mocracy of
this District for their nominatiou and to you for the
flattering terms of your letter.
I remain yours, A,
Messrs. M. E Wilcox, Wm. A. QcaaLrs, W. K.
It is worthy of note, that whilst Mr. Ewing
declares he has since the adjournment of the
Democratic State Convention " dechitely and
fully announced " his determination not to he
a candidate for Congrttt, it was elated in
the Claiknille Convention, on the authori
ty of the Hon. Cave Johnson, that he would,
in hit (JohnKon"i) opinion, accrpt the nom
nation. (Vide a letter from Clttrksville in
thia morniug'a Patriot.) Can it he pos
eible that the lion. Cats Johnson has been
cooperating with Gov. Johnson to f jrce upon
Mr. Ewixo this declension with a view to
weaken the confidence cf the Democracy in
one of their ablest and moat worthy chiefs?

JSC ASHVILLE :
1I0NDAY, KAY 18, 1857.
The Public Lauds. .
In onr issue of Friday we presented to our.
readers a speech delivered by Mr. Caclils, of
Va., on the above subject, in which waa incorpo
rated a table of the areas of the several new
States, the amount of lands which have been
eold, and the amount disposed of in donations
for purposes of education,and other purposes.
It is important in the consideration and dis
cussion of this subject, to keep iu mind the
facts, embodied in that table. In addition to
what is there shown, bringing the grants and
donations op to the 30th of June, 1856, we
will add, that the last Congress made very
large additions to these Heme, especially in the
way of grants to the States of Iowa, Florida,
Alabama, Louisiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and
Mississippi, for Railroad purposes. These last
graDts were uniformly for alternate sections,
for sii miles on each side of the respective
roads, named in the several acts relating to the
subject. We have not the present means of
knowing the precise amounts of these grants,
for the reason that they were made for road9
which were particularly named, eome located
and some not located, and hence we cannot
know precisely how long they will be. The
aggregate amount, however, has been estima
ted at from fifteen to twenty milliont of acres
which must be added to the aggregate of Mr.
Carole's table, to ascertain the present con
dition of the public lands. And we may safe
ly put dewn the amouDt otherwise disposed
of than by sale, at from two hundred and thir
ty, to two hundred and Jorty milliont oj acres.
Forty millions cf this have been disposed of
for the beflefit of the Indians and for military
services, which leaves about two hundred mil
lions as havingbeen donated to States, individ
uals and companies. The amount sold falls
somewhat short of one hundred and f rty mil
lions of acres; giving an eicestof donations
over tales of about tixty millions of acres
which added to the military bounty, in
creases this excess to one hundred millions.
Throughout the discussion we desire that the
people shall bear these fctsconstantly in mind.
There are bnt two objections made by our
opponents, to the disposition which is propos
ed, cf the public lands. The first is that it is
unconstitutional, the other that it is inexpedi
ent. Whatever other objections may be urged
by way of evasion, will fall under the one or
the other of these. We ehall devote this ar
ticle mainly to a discussion of the first objec
tion But before proceeding to this we must draw
a distinction between the tenures by which onr
public domain is held. Our lands were ac
quired in four ways 1. By deeds of session
by some of the original thirteen States which
held title to unoccupied territory from the
British crown ; 2. by purchase (both by war
and treaty); 3, by annexation; and 4, by dis
covery and occupancy. By the first, we have
the cession of Virginia, of the territory desig
nated as Northwest of the Ohio river, out f
which have been formed the States of Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin; the
cession by Georgia and South Carolina, of the
territory south of the Tennessee river, out of
which were formed Alabama and Mississippi ;
and the erection of Teunessee and Kentucky
out of territory belonging to Virginia and
North Carolina. By the second we have all
that vast and magnificent domain stretching
westward from the Mississippi riverto the Pa
cific Ocean, iocluding Florida, and excluding
Tex ts and Oregon. By tho third we have Tex
as, though the resolutions of annexation stipu
lated that Texas should retain the ownership
of her lands, upon her admission into the Un
ion, which she did, and which cannot there-
fr be properly considered in treating of the
public lauds cf the United States. By the
fourth we have Oregon. This, with the ex
ception of Maine, constitutes the whole of our
area. New York, Massachusetts and Connec
ticut also made cessions of certain lands over
which they claimed jurisdiction by virtue of
grants from the King of Great Britain, but no
new State was erected out of these grunts, ex
cept Maine, which was originally Massachu
setts territory. The cessions made by
tha several States occurred under the
old Confederation, with the single txeep
tion of that of Geortia, which occurred
in 1802. The distinction which we have made
will be readily seen. All that acquired simply
by purchase, beginning with the Louisiana Ter
ritory and ending with the Mesilla Valley, is
not subject to the constitutional o! jectin ur;
t'd in the cases of cear-ion bv the States. Tl e
right to purchase and hold at pleasure, nece:
sarily involves the right tostll or otherwise
dispose of at pleasure. If it is constitutional
to purchase, k is certainly no less s, to sell or
give away that which is so obtained. The on
ly obligation resting upon the government, io
such cases, is that it shall administer the ter
ritory so acquired bona fide, so that injustice
will be done to no part of the country. It be
ing acquired b) a common effort and a com
mon fund, it should go to the benefit of the
whole Union alike, and to the general advan
tage. Having premised this incch, as to facts
and irinciples, which we presume no caudid
orfairminded man will deny, we shall under
take to show, that the first objection is un
The Virginia cession was by fr the most
important, and because the others fallowed it
out in their stipulations we will take that as
the basis of onr argument. This took place
by an act of :he Legislature of Virginia, of
20th October, 1783, which was accepted by
Congress March 1st, 1794. After proposing to
44 Convey, transfer, assign and make over nn
' to the U. S. in Congress assembled, for the
"benefit of the in id States, all right, title and
"claim, as well of soil as jurisdiciijp, which
V this Commonwealth hath to the territory or
"tract of country within the limits of the
"Virginia charter, annate, lying and bein, to
'the northwest the river Ohio," the Virginia
act proceeds to stipulate : " That all the land
"within the territory o ceded t the U. S.
44 and not reserved tor, or appropriated to, any
of the befi-rv weutioceJ purposes, or disjoeJ
"of in bounties to the otllcers acd soldiers of

I Jili October, ITS J. Tha Colon wr tLea
engaged ta a revolutionary tru&;'; tha Con
ivderaUua W4s withuut lucils or da power to
raise them, except by the voluntary contribu
tions of the States; it sought by this means to
secure an independent fund and to have at its
command unembarrassed resources. Besides
this motive, many of the States were without
extra lands, they were expected to contribute
their proportion to meet the general expendi
ture,' and had not the power to do so; these,
also, were perhaps moved by jealousy and
fear of the overshadowing power and influence
which those States of laree domain were ca
pable of exercising in the affairs of that new
and untried confederated government. Mary
land had already protested upon the subject;
on the loth December, 1778, she had said that
t was fundamentally wrong and repugr ant to
every principle of equality and justice that
one State ehonld bear the "expenses of sub
duing and guaranteeing immense tracts of
country, if it were not to obtain any of the
monies arising from the sales of those tracts,
or be otherwise benefited thereby." Upon
these grounds Maryland had refused to accede
to the articles of con federation. Thus it became
a matter of the first importance that these
lands should be made a common fund, and
that they should cease to be a subject of con
tention among the States which required the
utmost unanimity and concord. Hereupon
followed these concessions ard grants, New
York taking the lead in 1781, Virginia next,
in 1783-4, and then followed the rest. The
confederation was completed, the war prose
cuted to a successful close, and the States ad
mitted to nn equal enjoyment of the publio or
Tit's statement of the facts and circumstan
ces under which the Federal Union came into
posetaon of, the waste lands, gives a key and
solution to the whole question. It was a trust
fund, and the Congress of the confederation
was thetrhstee, and the States respectively
the eettuit que trust, or beneficiaries. By the
subsequent substitution ot our present consti
tution for the articles of confederation, and a
reorganization of the government into aumore
perfect union," neither the character of this
fund, nor its tenure, nor the purposes, weie, in
the slightest degree, changed. The action of
all the three departments of government, Ex
ecutive, Legislative and Judicial, was uniform
ly based upon this view. As late as 1828, the
question was brought before the Supreme
Court, in the case of Jaclson dec, vs Clnlc el.
al. (reported in 1 Peters R. p. 628), and Chief
Justice Marshall held that: "The govern
ment of the United States then received this
territory in trust, not only for the Virginia
troops on the continental establishment, but
also for the use and benefit of the confedera
tion; and this trust is to be executed 'by a
faithful and bona file disposition for that pur
pose." The trustee, in name, but not in real
ity, was changed by the abrogation of the old
Federation. The obligations, rights and duties
of the government created in 1789, were re
ceived in all thtir original force.
The Union prospered, the Revolutionary
debt was paid, and still there remained a large
surplus of these lands. And the question arose,
what disposition should be made of this sur
plus? Sale and settlement was theonly mode,
except by donation. The system was blended;
land offices were opened, prices fixed upon the
lands, and grants made; so also did Congress,
taking a just and elevated view of the wants
and necessities of the new Statep, make them
liberal grantsfor purposes of internal improve
ment. The steam car was not then a part in
the economy of commerce, and dotations wer;e
made to post roads and canals. Ohio, Indiana,
and Illinois were the first to experience the
vivifying effects of this policy. They soon
sprang iuto an athletic existence, their resour
ces were developed and their prosperity en
henced. Upon the introduction of steam pow
er and locomotives, the same policy has been
pursued (all parties concurring) with a still more
open and unsparing baud; and in process of
time, these States, through these magio appli
ances, have rnen to the first rank in point
of population, wealth and political power.
While these things have been transpiring, Vir
ginia, like the ancient " mother of colonies,"
is said to have been retrograding ; Maryland
has been on a dead standstill; North Caro
lina, aided by her mineral wealth and the fru
gality and industry of her people, has made a
slow and fatiguing progress ; South Carolina,
by her climate and large slave labor, has but
j int past the goal of youth in the race of im
provement ; iennessee and Kentucky, with
their rich and exuberant soil, have by state aid,
and county aid and brave-hearted individuals,
untied into corporations, torn away the hills,
leaped the valleys, bridged the streams, and
rushed headlong iuto the bowels of mountains,
with the fire-breathing charger of the iron
hoof. But at what cost and expense? It is
enough here to say, that we have involved
ourselves in debt. Twenty millions perhaps,
are in store for Tennessee Virginia groans nn
der a public debt equal or nearly equal to that
of the Federal government ; and so of the
other States named, rnenUitis mutandis. Will
this comparison, and the foundation of these
improvements, the question recurs, what has
been done with the trust found, created for
the joint and 44common benefit?' Where ii
the fchare of VirginU, who offered up an em
pire upon the altar of concord and fraternity ?
where, that of Maryland, who made it a con
dition precedent, in her alliance with the other
States, that she should have her equal and j'ist
proK)rtiou in this fund t where, that of Ken-,
tucky, whose 6oil blushed with the blood of
her pioneers? where that tf TiSNEseaa, the
beautiful and chaste danghterof North Caro
lina? where that of all these noble States ( f
the South end the Middle ground? In reply
to these inquiries, we are told that these lands
have been sold, and their proceeds passed into
the common treasury, were paid out iu the
current budget of finance, and the States there
by relieved of Taxes. This is untrue. The sta
tistics show, that but a little more than half of
this fand which has been disposed of has bee n
taken up in that way. When we ask that the
contract le executed, and every State receive
its share, we tre met with the driveling sub
terfuge of partizana, that it is nnoonatitution

The Democratic FWwon
For the Pa riot.
Clarkjvillx, May 13, 1857.
Mxssrs. EDnoas: The Democracy held their
Convention here on Monday the' 11th of this month,
for the purpose of nominating their candidates for
Congress and the State officers. They had truly a
refreshing time. As soon as the Convention was
organized there was a motion made to declare Win.
A. Quarles of this plaee the unanimous nominee of
the Convention for Congress in this district. A
motion waa then made to postpone the convention,
on (he ground that there were no delegates in at
tendance from Davidson county. But it was sug
gested that Davidson had an opportunity to send
delegates, and as'the had not seen fit to do so. the
convention should proceed without ber. Afttr i
some discussion, the inotionto postpone the con
vention was tabled by a onunmious vote. M-jor
Lowe Washington, the melodious here moved
that the motion to deilim "Billy Quailss" the
unanimous nominee, be renewed. Thia motion
was seconded, there was a general cry for the ques
tion. Mr. Quarles hete cima forward and inmlored
the convention not to do the deed he reminded
them of his toils and sacriflces for the pirty, and
now they were about to repay him by nominating
hira for Congress. He really " bgged pitiful"
told them that Mr. Ewing was the man torur. that
the State Convention had said eo, and he thought
so. But it seemed to be no go his doom ap
peared inevitably shd. tiny Washington Lowe
insisted that 44 Billy Quarles could whip 'em "and
spoke for few moments a ith consid r ble unction
in favor cf his proposition. Washington claims to
be an oil Hue Whig, but in his case the line was
very nearly obliterated before old line Whiggeiy
was at a premium with Deraooracv.
Mr. N. II. Allen (flocket) anotherold line Whig,
here trose and said he wasn't for Mr. Ewing as
some other gentlemen were ha was not for giving
Davidson every thing that there was ta'ent out
side of Davidson county that Mr. Ewing's own
county bad foiled to send delegates to the conven
tion that Mr. Ewing was at Nashville imitating
the Enow Nothings letting the office seek the
man be was for Dominating Mr. Qutrles by accla
mation. The office, here seemed to be iu such hot
pursuit alter 11 r. Qjarles that the gentleman was
again forced to take the stand. Seeing that he
would be caught, he said he would not suffer his
name to be brought In conflict with Mr. Ewine's.
lie read a portion of a letter from Lion. Cave John
son, stating that be believed Mr. Ein would ac
cept the nomination. Mr. Allen and Mj. Lowe
both stated that Mr. Ewing told (hem he would not
ccept the nomination. There were evidently
'ropes" in the convention which theso two old
line Wbigs diJu't understand not being fully ini
tiated into the confi lence of the party, they had
not had matters explained to them, and consequent
ly their zal was not according to knowledge. It
struck some of us as strange that two old line
Whigs should of pse the nomination of the only
eauservative democrat of distinction in the State.
But to proceed. Mr. M. E. Wilcox thought Mr.
Ewing ouhtto be nominated that be could not
refme to accept. Wm. tlogers, Esq , here arose like
a volcano sending forth from his lop fire and smoke,
aud said he was opposed to Swing's nomination
he recollected that Mr. Eing came here oucj be
fore and waited till the convention nominated him
and then declined said if tiny nominated him they
were a " chuckling set. " There was a general
"chm kle" at this remark, but fie gentldm la pro
ceeded to rear and pitch finally turned wi.ite
about the mouth and subsiled iato his seat very
much to bis own gratificatiju and that of the con
vention. Mr. T. J. Fort, the Chairman, unable to hold
himself any longer, called 8me body to the Chair
and "pitched into tho ring;" but on reaching the
floor ascertained that he did not feel as much like
speaking as he thought he did, he made a few lime
remarks in favor of Mr. Ewing and went back to
the Chair and sat down and didn't get op any more.
After a good deal of speaking and manoeuvering,
very amusing to witne-s, they finally succ eded in
appointing nominating committ-e. The Com
mittee retired and in a short time returned and re
ported the Hon. Andrew Ewing as the unanimous
choice of the Committee. A motion was made to
ley the nomination on the table; cries all over the
hou'e that it wouldn't do. Amid the cot fusion,
Mr. Qjarles again took the stind. I wg st rry for
Q iarles, he is a clever man; tut he is ratht r fat and
his legs short, and he and the office "did worry one
another dreadful." It waa tie most interesting
race between the man and office that I hive ever
witnessed. I thought be had complet. ly eluded
the search of the keen s ent d oflioe, but it jumped
hira again and the race between them 'wasbeauti-
tiful." He toll them again that he would not per
mit his name to come in conflict with Mr. Ei i-,'s,
and bf ged em it they loved biua to let him alon
but Mr. fearing was evidently at discount in the
convention. Mr. Parry eai I be did uot believe in no
minative committees, any how, arid be moved
that the convention tike things in their own hands,
at d nominate Mr. Q larks. I thought Quarles was
certainly gone no; he was too much exhaut;ed
from the List brush, to take the stand again, hut
told a friend to my that he would not positive
ly fuKer his name to come in conflict with Mr.
ing's. The vote was now takeu, on ratifying the
nomination of tie Committee. It was ratified by
a lean majority ; gooi many voting "no." There
was great confusion hurrying to and fro, and c riea
of "it ought to be made unanimous we must make
it unanimous." There was a motion made by Judge
Overton to make the nomination cf Mr. Ewit.g un
animous. Some democrats suggtsted to the Judge
that he bad better not prets that motion. It was
withdrawn. But, tbey sid, it would never do. it
must be made unanimous, and the motion was re
newed, the vot taken and soma very loud "noetn
were heard. This was awkward. The chair got
fretted and raid it waa the Know Kothins that vot
ed 44 no, " whereupon Mr. Roger got up and toll
him he voted 4' no "and that he wa not a Kno
Nothing. But it was decided that the majority
mad it HHttmoH. Mr. Ewing was most clearly
not the choice ol the convention. The m xt thing
in i-rder was to i O.i.ir.ate a candidate for the Senate,
I thought to a yaeif, aa they din'ul say anylh'ng to
Mr. Afhn about running biru for Cons-ret- thyU

ciently large to bring out all his powers. The
"Tennessean" will again go "abroad." Next came"
the Domination for the countyv Wm. Parry and
R. H. Moody were put ia nomination.-, Mr. Parry
Is a short, f.t, good-natured man, aud feeling that
he would break down if he attempted to run from
the office, resolved to stand his ground like a man
whether he laughed the oflioe out of countenance,
when it made a pass at him, I don't know, but
he foiled to get it. Mr. Moody was nominated. Al
together, it was one of the richest, most harmoni
ous conventions I ever witnessed. It is whispered
about here I don't vouch for its trutli that Mr.
Ewing was nominated with a full knowledge or be
lief that ha would decline if he declines, that puts
biro out of Andy Johnson's way for the Senate.
Tbey empowered a committee to call another Con
vention in case Ewing declined. If theconvention
meets a second time, I predict that Mr. Quarles
ill be nominated for Congress, and some other
gentleman ail be put ou the track for the Stale
Senate. There is one thing very certain. Mr. Ew
ing was nomioated agiinst the express wishes of
the convention they made two attempts to make
bis nomination unanimous and failed. There seem
ed to be a general b lief that he woull decline,
but the knowing ones carried their point and put
him through. 7.
