Interesting from tbe Ecsso-Chisesi Fron
tier. The Union publishes an interesting letter
from Mr. McCollins, written at Irkoutsk, in Russia
Tartary, on the 4tb of March last. This gentle
man was appointed last year Consul of tbe United
States at tte Anioor liver, and is now on his way
to l is post. He went by the way of Moscow,
where be was present at tbe coronation of th.j
Emperor lo August last, and there met the Gov
ernor of the province irj which his consulate lies.
The Governor offered him a conveyance to the
shores of tbe Pacific in hi suite, as he was about
returning Lome. Mr. McCollins accepted the of
and was posted across Siberia to Irkonuk, on
shore of Lake Baikul. where thev were
obliged to winter. He took advantage of this de-
lay to vwit the Rus-ian trading town, KUchta,
through which the vast over.and trade of Russia
with China is conducted. - v-
lied, scribes this ciiy as being in fact two towns,
one Russian and one Ci.inese, separated by a broad
open apse-' between them. The trade is carried on
by barter, and here the Chinese dutv is collected,
A large quantity of teas and silks are. however.
smuggled across tbe frontuV f.rtber west. At
Kiuchta the trade is conducted with treat secrecy,
as to details, each m. r, bant keeping the secrets
of bis busioes to himself, th y being family heir-
looms, and as such descend from fatber to son.
Mr. alcto.lins adds that the couniry in that vicim-
ty very quiet and peacefully disposed, and the
Chinese merchants gave virv little importance to
tbe stories about intestine difficulties in the central
the South. At Tekiu everything was reported to
be exceedingly quiet.
At Kiat bta a larpe dinner was given to the Con
sul, at which the officials ar d a 'r number of
the Russians and Chinese merchants asri-iU-d. Mr.
McCo'lioa mude a speech, in which be explained
to them the advantages of the new route of tnde
through the Amoor river which he hoped to open
to them, by which they would pet their western
goods much cheaper than by the present laborious
a nd costly proce of Lind carriages across Siberia,
which took from four to twi Ive montl s according
to th season. 1 hU supteMion was well received
by botli partits. The Emperor of Russia, the
Emperor of China, and the President of the United
Siates wire 4'ch toa-ted and loudly cheered.
Mr. McCoifira will proceed to the batiks of tbe
Amoor by land, aud then take water conveyance

THTJESDAY, MAY 28, 1857.
Tte Democracy panderinff Freeaoll
lni, In tbe disposition of tbe Public
In another column of onr paper to-day,
may be fonnd an article from the Richmond
(Va.) Whig, to which we invite the atten
tion of our readers. The charge i3 there
distinctly made, that it is the intention and
policy of tbe democratic party to conciliate
the new States, bo rapidly springing up in
onr ICorth-western territories in other
words, to purchase, bay rjp these States
by liberal grants of public lands, and thus
secure them to the democracy. As pro
foundly sensible as we are in our belief, of
the trickery and knavery of many of the
leaders of that party, to compass their per
sonal aggrandizement, at any cost to the
general welfare, we 6hould hesitate long
to believe that any respectable portion of
that party, or of the leaders of it, had so
far lost every sense of honesty and good
faith, as to lend themselves to a scheme, so
abhorrent to erery idea of integrity and
justice, as that here charged. But that
there are men and papers belonging to
that party, who and which would gladly
avail themselves of such means, the facts
now being developed most clearly indicate.
Tbe Richmond Enquirer, whose democracy,
we believe, has never been questioned, has
gone so far in this direction as to say, that
sooner than see the public domain justly
and equitably disposed of among all the
States, it would go for giving the lands to
the States in which they lie! Rather than
see the Whig and American doctrines of
an equal distribution, triumphant, it would
give up the whole public domain to the ab
olitionists and freesoilers of the North-west.
Such a proposition as this, is enough to
startle the South, and to cause it to rise tip
as one man, in condemnation of so gross
an outrage. It is outright treason, oi the
deepest dye. It reduces the South to the
position of a dependent province, which
has no rights in common with the other
States she must pay her taxes she must
bear her share in the common defence but
when it comes to the advantages derived
from the union, she is scornfully and ar
rogantly denied a participation, and yet
6he is expected to submit and shout the
loudest hosannahs over her own shame and
The views expressed by the IWig have
confirmation in other facts than the brazen
declaration of the Enquirer. The propo
sal of the democracy to restrict the grants
of lands to the new States, and mainly to
those where frccsoil and abolition senti
ments are predominant, unjustified as it is,
by anv other principle of right either of

than " liberal grants " ot the public lands,
and making sovereigns of every foreign
pauper and native interloper, who might be
shipped to the territory. But these grants
would fail of their object, if other States
of -the South Ehould be treated with the
same liberality. There must le the element
of favoritism before thi loon is appreciated.
There must be a decided and palpable ad
vautage gained before the bargain receives
the character of being a good oue. If the
land grants are made to all alike, it would
then come as the air, or. water, or sunlight,
as a common blessing, and there would be
nobody to thank. This is a new develop
ment, and is worthy of the closest scrutiny.
If true, it would justify an instant change
of the policy of the Southern people in re
spect to the public lands, and require them
to demand that not another additional
acre of the public soil should be given
away, until we of the old States, and es
pecially of the South, fchail have obtained
the full measure of our just and equal
rights. If this has been the secret policy
of the democracy, now for the first time
openly avowed, let us, in the name of every
thing we hold dear, know it. If it has not
been, and if these charges are untrue, let
them deuy them in the most complete man
ner possible, by boldly proclaiming and
voting for equality, in the distribution of
this fund. This we call upon the people to
do; to forsake and repudiate those false
leaders, who are thus leading them into the
pitfall; and to assert their honor as men,
understanding their rights in this govern
ment " and knowing, dare maintain them."
We reiterate the questions propounded
by our contemporary of the IVhig, and ask
the presses and Kpeakers of Tennessee if
a bill is introduced in the next Congress
to make the disposition of the public lands
equal among ell the States, and another
bill to cede these lands to the States iu
which they lie, which will they support?

We lay before the readers of the Pat-

between the candidates for Governor,
The letters are from intelligent, reliable

Both of them are ia the finest spirits in
a most jubilant hnmor. They are well
atisfied, as were their party friends, with
ine day's work they witnessed, and regard
it as auspicious of the success of our gal
lant champion. We are not surprised.
We have felt that Bob Hattok was a
tnorough match for Gen. Harris, and
that, immediately upon the opening of the
discussions between them the fact would
be made manifest to the gratification of
our .nends to whom he was a 6tranger,
Furthermore, they will discover that the
young " Cedar Snag" will not permit his
competitor to choose either the ground on
which the battle is to be fought, or the
weapons to be used. He is determined to go
before the people upon the proper issues,
and will have a verdict upon them. He will
discharge his whole duty to the opposition
to the tham Democracy, and discharge it
well. Let the Americans and WBTgs the
great-hearted and honest-hearted masses
arouse themselves, and sustain him as he
deserves to be sustained, and they need
have no fear of the result.

Camdkn, May 25, 1857.
Editohs of tdk Patkiot : The Gubernato
rial Candidates opened tbe contest at this place
to-day, and I know that Co), llatton's friends
in jour portion of the State will be rejoiced to
hear that Le achieved a perfect "Roagb. and
Ready" victory. I do not say this I assure
you in the usual spirit of political boasting and
bragadocio, bat I am able to give you my word
of honor upon the assertion. So complete an '
overthrow and demolition, I never saw in all
the history of political discussion, as that
which befel Gen. Iiarris lo-day; and to make it
doubly mortifying, it was at home among his
friends and old acquaintances. The victory
wa plain, decisive, overwhelming. Ilatton'a
friends were delighted, exultant, jubilant.
They were phrenzied with delight, and shout
ed and roared until the house shook as if it
would full ; and the democracy had nearly all
left the room, in order, perhaps, to escape the
crash of the fall, but more probably to hide
their mortificatiou and chagrin ; for these feel
ings were plainly depicted upon the counte
nances of all of them; many of thetnacknow-
edged that Gen. Harris was badly matched in
the fight. I am certain that not one of them
claimed a victory or even a drawn battle for
the General. As for him, the defeat nearly
crashed him. He was the most dejected man
I ever saw. You may rely vpon this, and tell
our friends to go to work in earnest. Vie have
a leader now who is worthy of our 6upporf,
and while he is out at the wars enduring hard
ships and making sacrifices for us, we must do
our duty, rally around and sustain him, and
we can carry him in triumph through the
fight. lie looks in fine spirits, and his hearing
on this occasion was the very personification
of gallantry aud nobleness. Yours truly,
A Ha ppt Fellow.
ToEditokb Patriot: I was at the opening
of the Ball, no not ball, it was too blissful and
glorious to the Americans present fr a ball;
and to the Democrat?, it was as sad and mourn
ful an occaiion as the funeral Jof a mother.
Oh I such a victory, eo decisive and over
whelming in its character, I never witnessed
before. Hatton positively annihilated Harris.
This may seem an exaggeration, but it is only
sober, earnest truth. I know that such a glo
rious triumph as Hatton achieved over Har
ris at Camden, in their first conflict, was not
anticipated by our American friends. But, it
was certainly an uuparalleled victory by the
admission of Democrats, and even virtually
acknowledged by Gen. Harris himself. Not a
partial victory, not a mere triumph of wit
but a wholesale victory of wit, eloquence, and
logic on every topic of debate from first to
last. 1 have not time at present to go into the
detai!s of the speeches, but assure you, that
you may rdy with the most implicit confi
dence on the general impression and result as
stated, and let oar friends throughout the State
be assured that Hob Hatton is a man of the
noblest stamp, and worthy of the noblest
cause that ever enlisted the attention f the
people of Tennessee, and abundantly able to
triumph over bis opponent anywhere.
For the Patriot.
Frakelin, Mat 25, 1657.
Eoitori or tni TATaior : Believing the follow
ing information micbt be interesting to many of
the readers of the Patriot, I have thought proper
to writs to you on the subject, to wit : The sut ject
of Western Emigration. There is now in this
place and vicinity an ffort beiDg made to organize
a compiny for the promotion of Western Emigra
tion, upon a plan something like this: Some fifty
or seventy-five persons, (heads of families princi
pally, wi l be required to take stock, in sums not
less than one hundred dollirt each, and as much
more ss they may desire making ia the aggregate
some fifteen or twenty thousand dollars which
stock will be placed in tbe bands, or under the con
trol ol ao agent, to be selected by those who take
stock, for tbe purpose of purchasing a suitable
site for a town or business point, on or near some
oavigabls stream, surrounded with rich and cheap
lands; lay on lots and prepare them for sale;
build a print and saw-mill; procure, at the most
convenient point, a sufficient amount of provisions
to supply those who may first emigrate to the
place ; and to make any and a'l Improvements ne
cessary to promote the rapid settlement of the
town; and remove, as tar as possible, all tbe pri
vations and inconveniences of settling lo a new
country. Tbe joint interest will be ou1 the
amount of stock taken any other means belong
ing to the party to be under tbeir own control, to
be used la the purchase of lands, agriculture, stock
rising, or otherwise.
By lb la plan, property ciriled out, it ia believed
that all the advantages of rich and cheap lands
can be bad, with but lew of the privations and in
convenlenc s of a new country. Fifty or seventy
flte famihts settling at tbe same point will at once
Insure the building of church- s, opening of good
schools, and every thirg else cetresnary to promote
the successful and speedy su!rjneot of the town
and vicinity ; sod lands procured at a mere nominal
price woold, Iu a3 probability, la five years advance
to ten times their cost. Ttiis would cetUiidy be

and infamous bargain had been entered into be

we too to consent to surrender the interests of V lr-
Riuia and the other Southern old States in the pub
lie land to the North-western new Slates. UDon con'
dition that the latter should adhere to tbe national
() Democratic organization and support for Pres
ident and Vice President, the candidates of thena

cusation we make against those Democratic politi
cians nere in Virginia and throughout tbe Sou.b,
who are now no utterly and violently opposing the
proposition for a jut and equitable distribution ot
the ommon domain; and daily transpiring devel
opments conspire to substantiate the truth of that
But ss thorouehlv as we believe in the existence
of the ''coalitiou" alluded to, we had no thought
mat we thould so soon have proof of the fact 10 tbe
columns ot a leading Democratic journal published
here in tbe Metropolis ol Virginia. But such, we
are sorry to sav. appears to u to be tl.e case. A
b-twetn tbe proportion to d s tribute the public
anas tairlv and tqually among all the States, anJ
the proposition ti cede tbe whole of tbem to the

Enquirer upon this frave sutjecL And does it not
strike tbe minds ol Southern men with utter aston
ishment? Unlets a "coalition," like that referred to, does
exist between the Democratic politicians of Vir
ginia and tbe South, aud tbe democratic politicians
of tbe Northwest, why is it that a Virginia Demo
cratic journal should favor tbe cession of tbe public
lands to tbe new btates in preterence to favoring
an equal distribution of the same among all the
States, Virginia iuclusivef Wherefore, and how,
ould the ceding of these Imda to tbe new States
be a le.-s "dangerous disposition" of tbem, than
distribution f How is it that the policy thus pre
ferred by the Enquirer would oe "more in accord
ance with a sound national sentiment?" It is
uuiversitlij admitted that these l.mds were ceded
by Virginia and other States to the General Gov
ernment for the common une and benefit of
all the States. And would not a fair and equal
distribution of them or their proceeds among all
tbe States tbe scheme advocated by us accom
plish tbe object intended ? But it that would not,
pray tell us how the Enquirer t policy could come
in gun shot of accomplishing it, when by that
policy the public l.mds every acre nd every rod
would enure to tbe exclusive benefit of three or
four Slates only ? Lias it coma to this complexion
at last that the Democratic opponents of distribu
tion in Virginu prefer that all the benefits and
advantages of the 'coiuuiou inheritance' " should
flow to tbe new States, to the utter and it revocable
exclusion of Virginia and tbe other old States?
V hy do these Virginia Democrats insist that these
ands shall be civeu to the new States, instead cf
to Virginia ? There must be a reason tor so str tnee
and unpatriotx a preterence on thtir pir;. What
is it? What can it be? For oue, we know not,
unless it be tbe result of that corrupt bargain and
coalition, which we have slready adverted to, aud
which, iu our consciences, we believe eiNts be
tween the Democratic politicians of the South and
the Democratic politicians of the Northwest.
That is tbe ouly explanation wc can otTer for tbeir
course in taking sides with the Abolitionized
Northwestern States against Virginia and tbe Sjutn.
f they have other excuse, let it be stated lo tbe
public. As for justification, thev have none, and
can have none. '
O-ir readers will recollect that we have all alone
contended that the people of Virg'ria and tbe
other old States must either go in for di-tribution.
and go in for it note, or they must submit to tbe
outrageous alternative pref.-rtd by the Enquirer
an alternative which invol es tbe complete and
eternal surrender of the rights of the old States in
tbe public lands to the new Free-soil States of the
Northwest. These we repeat, are the two slterr.a-
tives between which the intelligent and patriotic
massisof the Virginia pet pie must choose and
they n ust chouse quickly, tleuce the overwhelm
ing importance ol electing some staunch and able
distribution members of Congress from Virginia,
on Thursday next men wbo will oppose to the
bitter end the flagitious and infamous scheme,
which would rob Virginia of all her rights in the
public lauds, without a tent's consideration, to the
Slates in which they lie to the Abolitionized
Slates of the North-west to tne Slates that voted
for Fremont, and tint are warring with all their
might upon the institutions of tbe South.
We dt sire to put this question to the Democratic
candidates for Con ress do they cr do they not
agree with the Enquirer iu preferring to see the
whole of the public lands ceded to the bt ites in
which th y lie, to seeing distribution succeed. In
the event of a bill being introduced in the next
.Congress to distribute the public lands or their pro
ceeds among all the Stales, aud another bill tocedo
these lands to the States in wbich tbey lie, which
will tbey suppon? Will tbey go for dilributior,
or will they go for wholesale ceesion, whertby Vir
ginia will be ousted of be: right utttriy and irre
IricVabl)? We demand of tbe Democratic candi
dates for Congress to answer these questions. And
we exhort tbe people to make them answer. We
appeal to Democratic voter: ttumst lvesto sij, if
they would not rather Virgii.i should have her
share of the public lands, than for the new States to
appropriate tue whole of tbem; as proposed by tbe
Yesterday, by Esq. Ftrrli, Mr. Hssav Tmoscii to Mri.
