The Discussion at Ilnneinjrdon-natton
;Crrle the Day;
IJpktikcdou, May 26, 1857
Editors or the Fatuot " Gentlemen V?
bad the pleasure to day, to hear the American and
Democratic candidate! for Governor, at this place.
There was a large and attentive audience. So
large, Indeed, that the (peaking had to tike place
ont of doora ia the Court House yard, to accom
modate the crowd. Mr. Hatton, the " Cedar
Snag. " lead off io an able an & effective speech of
one hoar end a-half, in which he demonstrated the
importance to Tennessee of the distribution of the
public lands among the States for internal improve
ment an4 common school purposes ; and drew a
contrast between the policy of distribution, and the
present Democratic policy of giving away the pub
lic lands to Railroad monopolies in the new States,
and as a bonus to the teeming millions of the pau
pers of Europe- to settle opon ; and, by their rotes
to exclude the people of thi South, with their pro
perty, from settling in, and partaking of the bene
fit of our territorial domain. These questions were
discussed by Mr. Flatton at a considerable length,
and with a force and power that will be sure to tell
ia the August elections. Ia connection with the
latter portion of this subject, Mr. Ilatton called
upon Gen. Harris to say whether or not be sustain
ed the position of Case, Douglas, and the entire
wing of the Northern Democracy in their views in
regard to alien enffrage in the Territori':. To this
enquiry respectfully put, we have no answer from
Gen. Harris, and I ahould think, from his artful
dodging, on other questions put to him by Mr. Hat
too, we will probably never hear from -bira
on the subject. He avoided the issue, as he did
most of those made by Mr Hitton, by reading an
extract from a speech made many years ago by
Mr. Webster at Buff-Io, in which Mr. Webster is
reported to have sail that the foreigners (Irish and
German) were pretty clever fellows and would pro
bably do; but Mr. Hitton in reply, said, as the
General had introduced Mr. Webster's testimony,
Dtbematter, he(Mr. Ilatton,) was willing to put the
whole question at issue upon the last and most ma
tured opinions of Mr. Webster on the subject. But
the General was '.satisfied with use the he had made
of Mr. Webster's speech, that ia to say he bad rais
ed a dust under the cover of which he had dodged
the issue. I have not tho time nor the opportuni
ty, (having taken no notes of the speech at the time)
to enter into a full detail of the different positions
assumed, enough to say: Hatton won, in the opin.
ion of all disinterested minds a most glorious vic
tory. Gen. Harris spoke the same length of time Mr.
Hatton did, and each half an hour In reply. I will
touch one other incident in the debate before
I close. Geo. Harris, objected to the distri
bution of the public land.', for the reason that
Coogresi bad no constitutional power to do so,
Io Mr. Button's rep'y be cited the fact, that Gen.
Harris, when in Congress, voted to give to Arkan
sas, Missouri Ac, crrtaia swsmp-'ands therein situ
ate, snd wanted Gen. Harrii to show how that
could be done for those States under the constitu
tion, and hen Tennessee wanted her portion of
the lands, her sons had so nobly bled and died to
win for our common country, the constitution strait
way steps between and denies us the boon. Mr.
Hatton desired to know if Gen. Harris carried asorl
of mather gauge to determine how wet land must be
before the constitution, would gracious!? permit
Cong res i to dispose of it to the State. Tbis you
may be sure called forth long and loud bursts of ap
plause, the General and his friends felt the ewk
ward position he was in, and their looks but too
plainly showed it. Upon the whole it was a good
day's work for the Whigs and Americans of CarroIL
Ao intelligent ai.d reliable gentleman who heard
the candidates on the 85th inst., at Camden, says:
that Hattou's victory there was still more decided
sod complete. We will give a good account of our
selves In August next
Befpectfully yours,
"CARROLL."
Heart-Rchdiko AccidiwtI Three Childrih
DrowsipI About the hour of three o'clock, yes
terday afternoon, four children of a Mrs. Smitb, a
widow residing near the Bayou, on the Ralei&h
road, and in the vicinity of the Memphis and Ohio
Railroad depot, got into an old skiff which was moor
ed to the bank of tin Bayou, and pushed out into
the water, which at this point was over ten feet Jeep
from the backing up of lb Mi'sUsippi. When near
the middle of toe stream, the ol lest, a girl of some
fifteen years, became so much frightened that she
attempted to trap into the water, and. In doing so,
upset the skiff and threw all the children into the
stream. Three of the party were drowned the
eldest girl, a boy about ten years old, and a girl
some eight years of age. Toe fourth, a little boy,
by a miarcle escaped from the stream and saved
Llmself. The bodies floated some fifty yards from
the point where they met with their untimely fate,
and were taken from the water by persona who
pawed the road and discovered them. 2emphit

Tb Kansas Poller Ue AdmiDietrs
' - Man.
"We have heretofore shown, by extracts
from the speech of Jlr. Stanton made on
his "arrival in Kansas, and the speech of
Gov. Walker made in ew York jast be
fore he departed from that city for the
Territory to assume the duties of bis of
fice, that it is their policy to make . Kan
sas a free State. An election is to take
place next month for delegates to a Con
vention to frame a State Constitution. At
that election none bat citizens of the Uni
ted States who reside in the Territory, and
have, within a certain period, registered
their names, are allowed to vote. After
the Convention shall have framed a Con
stitution it is the purpose of Gov. Walker
to submit it to the ratification of the peo
ple, at another election, when every resi
dent inhabitant, whether citizens, aliens,
or free negroes, will be permitted to vote.
The great body of Northern emigrants and
foreigners who have been rushing into the
Territory, will thus be given the power to
vote down the Constitution made by the
delegates elected by the citizens. If a
slave State Constitution is framed they
will, of course, refuse to ratify it; and
one of a different character be framed.
This is the policy of the administration as
developed by its agents in the Territory.
It is unmistakably hostile to the rights of
Southern people in the Territory. Yet, the
sham democracy of Tennessee the hum
bugging party represented by the Nash
ville Union and American have ottered
not one word of remonstrance. The lead
ers talk of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and
attempt to get up false issues to cover up
their shameless disregard of Southern in
terest and Southern rights, but they have
not the manliness to condemn the policy of
Mr. Buchanan which leads to the driving
of the institution of slavery from Kansas,
and endangering its existence in Missouri.
We call the attention of the people to
these facts; which should be pondered
long and well.
We have already republished an article
from "The South," an able democratic
journal, the organ of the Southern Rights
men of Virginia, coinciding in our view of
the policy inaugurated by Messrs. Stanton
and Walker, and we hereunto add a para
graph from the Charleston Mercury, an
other Southern Rights journal. The Mer
cury says:
Now, we bold that the submitting of the Con
stitution soon to be framed by the people of Kan
sis in Convention assembled, back again to tbe
people individually, for ratification, is a work of
supererogation a matter to be done or not, en
tirely at the discretion of the Convention, as a
thing of contingent expediency only, and not by
any means a thing of necettity. And we cannot
but look upon the suggeation of Mr. Stanton,
however coupled with declarations of Southern
feeling, and determination expressed by Governor
Walker, as pm-taking of the nature of official dic
tation, and being, in fact, a violation of the prom
ised neutralitv an intiliout and high handed
breach of faith toward the South and Southern
men in Kantat. W e, therefore, desire io the out
set to stump this game as it deserves, and protest
scainst all attempts to iufluenee the action of the
Convention from without, whether coming from
the Territorial officers appointed by the President.
or the Freeoil schemers of New York and Boston.
The real ohject and end it, under the guiee of fair
wordt to the South, to make a Fkie State or
Kansas.
The Mercury is a vigilant and honest
sentinel. It ppeaks boldly and independ
ently. It sees that the plot is to "make a
free State of Kansas," and it says so.
We beg the people of Tennessee, whom
the sham democracy are now endeavoring
to deceive by specious appeals to their
patriotism and prejudices, and by the re
agitation of questions settled, to be warn
ed before it is too late. ' If Kansas is ta
ken from us, it will be by the intrigue and
management of men who profess to be the
friends of the South, but who are really
almost as much her enemies as the aboli
tionist and black republicans men, who,
ia the name of democracy, are ready to
perpetrate any sort of crime which may
tend to keep them in possession of power
and place.
?P Who can account for the strange ideas and
still stranger expressions of little children? A little
blue-eyed girl of about six summers, a daughter of
one of our worthy citixens, the other day, weary,
and tired of play, came running into the house, and
throwing herself into tbe arms of ber mother, ex
cla'med: "Hold me, roa, I feel so bad!"
"Wnat's the matter, rcasT" tenderly Inquired
the anxious parent
'I don't know, only I feel mighty bad," replied
the little cherub.
"Does your head achif esgerly inquired the
mother, geutly stroking tbe flowingsuburn tresses
of the child. "JIo does my little daughter feel
bad?"
"Oh I I feel bad all over I feel just like a Drem
jtrat!" waa the curious reply
Not as yet satisfied with tbe result of bet investi
gations, tbe mother again inquired
"And bow does a Democrat feel, my child?"
"Just like be wanted to ateal something!" whim
pered the weary child, and nestling still closer to
the maternal bosom, she fell asleep. SotnerrilU

I lave spekeo of the first Educator, tbe Mother,
of her influence, ita effects, and its deficiencies.
Like her, the second, Nsture, has powerful forces,
and lasting impressions, but onliketbe mortal moth
er, she has no deficieneies. Like God, ber sire, she
is perfection, she comes fresh from his hand, snd
her teachings like Bis, glow with inspiration. Her
lessons like His mercies, sre "new to ns every
morning." Man is a trinity.be has a physical, 'a
mora!, and an intellectual nature, and to each of
these she ministers alike. She does not, like man,
who bss "sought out many inventions," leave one
portion of this trinity to desden and decsy, and
stimulate snother into a forced and fleeting life.
Her system of development too, U gTaduaL As the
gray dawn and rosy tints of twilight, gently trsin
the delicate retina of the eye to behold the full glo
ries of sunrise, and tbe broad blare of meridian
brightness, so she unfolds one after another ber
myt!c tablets, each revealing the increasing radi
ance of the Great Source of all moral snd intellect
ual light. In every minnte atom we see a definite
purpose, and thus we learn that we ourselves, mere
atoms of divinity, bave each our definite duty to
perform. From every mountain top our thoughts
are pointed to the psth to Heaven. In every brook
that murmurs at our feet Is taught a lesson of the
mighty law of Progression. The crystal spring
bursting from the rock a like pore, good actions from
stern end ragged hearts, will teach us that the bright
est snd most beautiful thoughts spring often from
the roughest exteriors. Then every tree that waves
to the breeze, has each its distinctive lesson. The
willow bending low its flexile branches wailetb,
"dust to dust" tbe poplar, shooting upward its
green spire, cries like hope, "Look aloft the
great oik, breasting sturdily the wind and storm,
shouts "Be strong,"- snd the plane-tree, stretching
abroad her white arms over the stream, calls softly
saying, "behold bow God's goodness overshadows
all the river of Time !n Nature, iu herself so love
ly teaches os to love the beautiful. She says
"Ay I lore It ; like a mothr it will b'ess.
And teach ihe patlenc when thy h-art ia lonely ;
Theanpeli love it, for they weir ita dreas,
And tluni art made a 'little lower only,'
Then love tbe beautiful."
To make our minds beautiful, we must throng
them with images of lovelines?; to make them per
feet, we must contemplate perfection. "Ou'thouck's
are tbe chisels which carve the statuary of our
souls." If they dwell habitually upon lovely ob
jects, sweet sounds, pleasant words, and good ac
tions, the forms they create will be harmonious and
beautiful ; but thoughts of wrong will as surely pro
duce distortion end deformity. Says Dr. Chan
ninp, "Tbe perfection of the mind is to haves pro
pensity to seek agreeable and interesting objects ;
to have th attention turn spontaneously to the
beauties of Nature, to excellencies of human char
acter, and to God's perfections." Where the influ
ences of the mother, and those of Nature coincide,
and elucidate each other, there can be no happier
system of education for the youthful mind. By
combining her forces with those of Nature, the
mother may render her influence a thousand times
more lasting and profound. She may lead her bey
whose impetuous and passionate nature, threatens
daily to plunge him in some recklers course which
shall "make shipwreck of bis soul," to expend his
ardor in climbing the mountain, threading the for
est, and breasting tbe rapid river. She may keep
her daughter's heart ' pure and ontpotted from the
world," in the midst of incitements to vanity and
frivolity, by occupying ber mind with lessons of the
li lies of the field, and tbe shells upon the shore.
She will often then turn aside from their more ab
struse studies to point them to that brilliantly illu
minated book which the Great Teacher is unfold
ing npon the bills, instructing them to
"Soar with the bird, and flutter with the leaf,
Ttsnee with the Feeded grata In wavy play,
Pail with the cloud rock with the dreaming pine,
And learn of nat. re all the live long day."
And when they question her as to the great First
Cause, the source of all these things, she will net
refuse to explain, ss well ss in ber power, the char
sctcr and designs of the mighty Author. There it
no more hardening procefs than that which remain
Indifferent to the inquiries of childhood, or refer
them to chance. It comes like the northern bhst,
chilling snd congealing the gushing spring, and
worsa than this, it forms an ice about the soul's
fresh fountains, which not sll the rays of Summer's
suns can melt It makes the young child a little
atheist, with no poetry in his soul, all is bard, icy
materialism. To him, Nature is comparatively a
"sealed book," her wonders and her beauties giv
no play to his slumbering fancies, no rich snd glow
ing tints to bis sleeping faculties. When such
one sriives at maturity, if he possess an ordiner .
mind, be will become only a dull and dreary p'air,
should he be a gifted spirit, his nature will take the
semblance of a "mountain soul, that throws its hag
gard cliffs In mockery to Heaven." Neither will b.
what they might, and ought to have been. Th '
good mother's lessons in tbis respect, will be full,
and acknowledged throughout life. We read thai
Sir Walter Scott, when ' almost sn infkut, was one
evening found missing at tbe approach of arising
thunder-storm. Search being instituted, the little
fellow was st last found, seated opon a grassy bank,
and aa the lightning gleamed and flashed above
him, he clapped bis tiny bands, exclaiming with
shouts of innocent infantine glee, Oh I bonnie,
bonuiel" This juvenile admiration for the great
anl exalted displays of Nature, became with bira
when grown to manhood, a very passion, and it in
spired most of tbe grand and sublime portions of
his works. Ills early training bad been such as to
brir g forth the good io bim, his love of Nature
deepened bis love to God, aud his works and ac
tions attest the predominance of these principles in
after years. With B;ron, unfortunately, tbe Case
was different He possessed, if possible, a mora
profound appreciation of the sublime and beautiful,
than Scott, but he bad no gentle, guiding hand to
lead him to the true appreciation. Whatever of
sublimity and grandeur is found upon bis pages, wa
may trace to his linc,erings among tbe Alps, and bia
favorite retreat, the summit of "dark Lochuagar."
To such a spirit, well might "Jura answer from ber
misty shroud," for his character, jagged and abrupt,
ploughed by the lightoing of his powerful passions,
and wrapt in the cloud-rack of gloomy misanthropy,
answered well to ber terrible shadow aa it rose
a mi J the tempest, or bsred its cliffs to th trans
ient sunshine. Ia many of bia productions there is
tbtt wild and savage loneliness which woulJ seem
to be the genuine offspring of such scenery. He
pasee before us aa eo eUibodiuaeut of the scene, ia
tbe fierce wail of his wayward spirit, w bear the
wind-shriek through the gorges, and we behold the
sunlight of bis genius sporting lice fragmentary riu
bows over the dark precipices snd seething cata
racts of bis pis4ons. Much Indeed does bis eh tr
ader resemble a slumbering volcano, "projecting
its cliffs like quenched batteries against earth and
Heaven," with the smouldering fire in its heart,
and the drifting suows upon Its icy bosom.
Tbe Mother should see to it that ber children
have the advantages of a communion with Nature.
It is not enough that she talks, snd reads, and
sings to them of three things, they must be brousht
Into actol and dally contact wiJi Natare, and be
taught to eontempUte ber wonders and her glories.
Io this respect ws cannot bfi jence the mind of a
chill at second-hand. We cannot make bio fret
the sublimity of a stem solitude, or realise tbe
graodeer aod beauty ot aa rxteaded prospect un
lets b sirs them. Description, however vivid, wiH
f.ll comparatively powerless, for the Teaoa that
the impraloos mad by NaUre sre "purely emo
tional, aod emotion la so evanesoeut that the tffjrt
to condense it Into language destroys the sn.i
mett, as breath destroys the prisms of the saow
flike,"
It is the datj of Mothers also, to u their IcaV
ence U having oar lostitatioos of learuieg loeted
amid the beautiful dipla;s of God's handiwork. We
are told by some that all sorb Instils tiocs Mtuo
coed best, and tarn out the greatest a a to ber of

is argued, (and with ooos train, though cot the
"whole truth,") that sucU a location affords the stu
dent as opportunity fur the atady of human nature,
aaj (Iams bia la a stuuikta to am bis k&42J..
ss. be acquires it ; in short it renders bim practical.
This is a view very likely to be taken by the mass
of the men of this eminently practical and utilitari
an day ; it maT be tbe
opinion of the fathers, but
I question if it be that of the thinking, reasoning
mothers of ur time. If in reference to the loca
tion of the "proposed Southern University," about
which so much baa been said, tbe vote of all parents
could be uken, I would not undertake to answer
for the majority of men, but I have no hesitation in
ajing that I believe all mothers who" are capable
of forming an opinion on the subject, would deci
dedly object to its being placed either "in, or near
large and populous city." -fhe mother who val
ues the physical or moral health of ber son, would
bave no hesitation in determining where she would
have him placed during the "transition state" which
characterises life at school. The opinion of some,
above-mentioned, is a following np of that system,
already too prevalent, and which is so much to be
deplored, the "sharpening" of the intellect, to tbe
neglect of the soul and tbe heart. That "knowl
edge of human nature," which the young student
gains by a city education, is generally too dearly
purchased by the sacrifice of all that is pure and
noble, and good in bis own nature. Such a course
may, ia themodern acceptance of the term, "turn
out the greatest number of great "sharp? men;"
will it create, or develcpe the greatest number of
good ones ? We-have now, if we may believe the
eulogistic press, any quantity of "great men," f
naotiers and physicians, enters snd orscles patri
ots, pill-makers, snd politicians, all "great men."
We have already a surplus of such on hand, the
supply U more than equal to the demond, and what
we want now is to "train and educate some plain,
honest, good ones. A city education conducted ss
it ordinarily is at the present day, is not the one
best calculated to give to our nation tbe men she
needs. Its temptatiors before which the unguard
ed and undisciplined heart is almost sure to fall, is
surely a counterpoise to that want of "polish"
which some deplore as the effect of a "mountain re
tirement." I have, however, yet to be convinced,
that a want of "polish" it a necessary consequence
of a "mountain retirement." I could name at this
moment, persons who now dispense the hospitali
ties of a mountain retreat with the elegance and
''polish" that would do credit to a court, and I
CDnld al?o mention perrons living within tbe circle
of all the luxuries and refinements of city life, who
are r.ot only deficient io "polish," but their rude
ness is rendered the more disgusting, in that it is
the result not so much of ignorance as of selfishness.
But I desire not to institute comparisons; the ave
rage number being taken into consideration, the
average amouut of refinement is probably equal.
True "polish" can only embellish true politeness,
and true politeness is not the child of ceremony,
but is born of the kindly snd sympathetic heart.
It is true that tolitude, (not retirement) has its dis
advantages; it is apt to render men s.-lf conscious,
if not somewhat self-sufficient. A free snd open in
tercourse with society, on the contrary, has a ten
dency to render one more liberal io bis views; it
earbes us to accommodate ourselves to ethers, and
reconciles us to the peculiarities of our fellow men.
But wheo that fear of opinion which awes the weak
aod inexperienced has been succeeded by firmness,
and a noble scorn of the falsities by which it was
once dismayed; when the soul bas been elavatcd
with lofty purposes, and the spirit acquired that
bravery and cool discernment which enable it cor
rectly to study aod analyse human character, and
bol lly to contend with the world, then it is time
to send tbe young intelligence forth to gain its
"knowledge of human nature." When in com
munion with his teacher Nature he has enriched
his mind, developed his heart, formed his physical
habits, and cultivated all his powers, to some ex
tent, then will he be strong to go forth "conquer
ing and to conquer." Institutions of learning should
be lecated smid the healthful influences of Nature,
as it Is there alone that physical education on be
properly carried forward, and it is in physicial ed
ucation that the basis of a true usefulness must be
laid. The foundation laid in a sound body, the
superstructure of a sound mind is much more pro
bable, snd then the "polishing," which so many
seem to coi siler of such paramount importance,
comes in, the last snd finishing work of the artist.
It is easy to put on that " polish" afterward when
all the building is staunch and strong; but let us
not polieh ignorance, let us not varnish over the
nature where the germs of vice lie sleeping, let us
not make our children "like nnto whited sepul
chres." No greater difference in educational sys
tems could exist than that which trained the youth
of our forefathers, the rigid Puritans, and that
which characterizes os at present. The mental
and moral training of that early day, stands out
before ns like tbe strong, but dark and rugged
pillar of stonehenge, ours is too much tbe modern
brick and mortar structure, covered with stucco,
and garnished with paint. Io the education of girls
especially we deal too much in tinsel, the orna
ments' like those of the Sabine maiden have nearly
crushed all life out of the system. That system Is
such that we all bave "a need," men, women and
children of us, to go back to Nature. We are de
veloped too much opon fale models, aud with
false views of life. We have need to be "born
again" of the spirit of Nature, we must in our
threefold character be matured at ber bosom, if
we would become models of health and beauty.
We must bsve our voices tuned like the harmony
of birds, snd our looks kindled st tbe stars. We
must revel Iu ber light and beat, drink of ber
fountains, and be tossed by her winds.
Whorer thinks, nuM re that nan was ma4
To face the storm, oot lang uih Io the shade,
Action's his aphere, "
and by tbis course of trsining will he be best
prepared for It, "The clearbrain, tbe sound
heart, the active nerve, are his who sUkes his
thirst st Nature's stream, who prefers God's mer
ciful thought ss expressed In water, to man s
perverted thought ss exhibited ia wine." And
this is just tbe-conlrsst between a retired edu
cation, and a city training. The one is a cop of
pure, sparkling, invigorating tauter, the other a
goblet ot (educing, exhilarating but too often fatal
wine. Retirement gives a jast, solid, firm, and for
cible tone to our thought. Intercourse with the
world imparts to them point, and brilliancy. It
may be Slid that by being guarded, and by teach
ing sound morality io city schools, we may make
men as upright as they could possibly be made un
der any circumstances. Io all school, generally,
tome S3 stem of moral philosophy is tiught, but the
young mind cons over a volume, fur tbe most part
dry, metaphyseal, or it may be m rely speculative,
and where is the oa f Can the feelings thus
awakened compare with the warmth, the rapture
that thrilled bis child heart, wheo at his mother's
knee, with the Bible for bis text-book, and all Na
ture before bim as aa illustration, aha impressed
opon bis spirit a sense of the love and duty which bo
owed to that great and good B'iug, "who bath
measured the waters In the bollow of His Laud,
and meted out the heavens with a span ; who bath
comprehended tbe dust of the earth in a measure,
aod weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills
ia a balax.ee ?" Oh! then when the youth passes
from bis mother's guardianship, do not separate bim
from Nature also, we etonot of course expect all of
our sons to become philosophers, and poets, ora
tors, and atatesmee, but wo mast bope that they
will ail become good men. To this end mothers of
oar Soothers Wad Wt sll your traloing-tead. If
yo would bve your ebilJ become a Noma, deny
him Dot the counsels aod companion-hip of the
beautiful Egeria, if yoo wouli bave him become
a follower cf the c'lvtne Master, theu Uch aa Us
taught, anJ jours sha3 be that glorious "recom
pense of reward."
