Mimphis amd Sam Dieoo Wagon Road. Capt.
Leach a Company struck their Unit and took their
departure frera the opposite bank of the Mfssis'ip
Tpi, day before yesterday. The Captain and his Hf
bursicg officer, M. A. McKinnoa, Eq., remained
1c the city yerterday for the purpose of settling up
4b account incurred by the expedition. They
win, Dowever, vtrtake the trains before they reach
White Hirer. . .
Fira weeks ao, in pursuance of the instructions
of Secretary Thompson, Capt. Leach reached our
bluffs and commenced his preparation for this im
portant expedition. Within that period he ha? se
lected and purchased hi teams and provided his
men with eomplete outfit for the twelve mouths
and started them off. . All this has been done in the
most quiet, and it is believed, patufactory manner.
During his sojourn hare we had the pleasure of fre
quent and unreserved interviews with him in regard
to his plans and purposes, and we take pleasure in
ayiuft' that ho has most favorably impressed us,
and all with whom he has dealt, with hia manifest
qualification for the work assigned him by tha In
terior Department. In tae appointment of Capt.
Leach to this service, the Hon Jacob Thompson
has given another and convincing proof that he un
derstands thoroughly what is expected of hi ap
pointees, and knows how to select them.
The Company will pursue the lniioioK route-,
with little or no variation, as far as EI Paao: From
Memphis to Des Arc; thence to Little Rock; thence
to. Preston; thence twelve miles north of Fort Bel
knsp; thene to Clar Creek; thence to Bi? Springs;
thence Little MicklerCreek; thence White Sand
Hills; thence Rio Pecos (emigrant crossing;) thence
by the most direct route to El Pago.
Assured of the deep interest felt for this move
ment to open a connection between the Pacific and
Mississippi, we have engaged the services of one of
Capt. Leach's company, who will furnish us with
regular reports ef the progress and opperations of
the expedition, together with such other incidents
as may be acceptable to our readers. Memphis
BaoEB Jail. Demon A. Moore, who was tried
at the last term of our Circuit Court for the murder
of his eon, and sentenced to the penitentiary for
tea years, and who was awaiting the result of an
appeal to the Supreme Court; Newton Mitchell,
awaiting his trial for selling a horse hired at Mc
Gaw'a livery stable; and Kennedy, charged with
murder in Giles county and sent here for safe keep
ing, broke jail night before last under rather pecu
liar circumstances. Moore and Mitchell were per
mitted, "by particular request," to occupy the fame
cell. Finding by some means that the door of tho
adjoining call was not fastened, they procured an
auger, by the same means no doubt, and cut through
one of the logs (about eighteen inches thick) form
ing the paitition wall. Having thus secured an en
trance into the adjoining cell, and thence into the
passage leading through the center of the prison,
they made their escape through the back door by
boring around the lock, not however, until they
bad broken the lock of Kennedy's cell and set him
Mitchell is a niill-wright by trade, and made an
exceedingly neat job of the hole through which he
left his cell. It must have cost him the labor of
half the night.
It will be seen by reference to our advertising
columns, that the Sheriff offers a reward of $500
for the apprehension of the escaped prisoners.
"Loose Dorse I'V-A rather fust looking horse,
attached to a buggy in which eat Mr. Kibukk, of
Nashville, ran away last Tusslay, and got up a
good deal of astonishment among the lookers-on.
Finding that the animal was about to run through
the market-place regardless of the couatqueucea
that might follow, the driver headed him directly
for tfie Court House, againxt whieh he duehed with
the force of a battering ram. The house; we are
glad to Bay, was not knocked down, but the horse
was. Strange as it may seem, however, he receiv

sumption that he haHn't got any, his head being

with bis feet against the dash-board, had all the

Demaardmcnt of (ref tovn.
In tha British House uf Commons on the
19th nit., the following remarks were made :
Lord Claude Hamilton asked what steps had been
taken by the Government to obtain compensation
for the British subjects residing at Grey town, whose
property was destroyed when that town was bom
barded in 1814. :
Lord Palroernton could not help characterizing
tbe proceeding as violent and cruel, reflecting no
credit upon the Government who ordered it to be
done or ujKn the officer who executed the order.
The question, however, had to be considered a
one of international law, and the law officers of the
Crown deeided that the Inhabitants ot Greytown
bad no claim to compensation.
Lord Lome remarked that the British Consul's
house at Greytown was set on fire while the flag
Was flying from it. He then condemned the cow
ardly policy of England toward the strong power of
the United States.
Mr. Roebuck ridiculed tbe explanation given by
the noble Lord, that it was the duty of the country
not to protect Grey low u from couqueat, aud to
allow bombardment without interference. The
conduct of the American Government was dishon
est, and if the offending Power had been China in
stead of America, they would have heard immedi
ately of tha insult to tbe British flig, aud repara
tion would have been enforced.
Mr. Bentyck observed that there had been for
some time a want of determination to resent out
rages committed by the American Government, and
considered that policy as more likely to promote
hostilities than to avert them.
Tbe Attorney-General denied that in any case
tha right to demand satisfaction for outrages by
America bad betn given up by England, and ex
pressed regret at the course which the Government
bad been compelled to take.
M. Disraeli considered the explanation of the
Government a moat unsatisfactory, contending that
it was a violation of international law to bombard
an unfortified town. The French government bad
sought rcdnsj, though the English Government
bad failed to doao; but be believed that public
opinion being brought to bear upon the matter
would lead to a different course btiug adopted.
Lord Johu Russell approved of tbe course) taken
by tbe Government iu regard to the claim for com
pensation, but thought that explanations should be
demanded as to the insult to the British flig. Tbe
ease of China had been referred to, but our con
duct there bad been most flagitious, aud so totally
opposed to justice that it was a precedent behopod
would never again be followed.
The eutject was then dropped.
Xhe Crapa Crop.
We regret to learn that the "rot" bash jursd tha
grape ia many of the Vineyards around Citu-iu-nati.
In tone vineyards at least one half of the
grapes are destroyed. If, however, the weathir
should be favorable, and the injury extend no fur
ther, tha crop will still be good. The vineyards
this er rinsr, have been weighed down with a super
abundant crop, so much o, that il half of the grape a
are thinned away by the "iot,"a hue crop woulJ

Harris, Walkluj, and Smith.
; Gen. Habuis has openlj avowed the doc
trine of Alien Suffrage, in the territories.
What he hoi da to be right and just and proper
in the territories, :s nrjastand improper in
the States, at least in Tennessee. Oar consti
tution limits the right of suffrage to citizens.
Thia Gen. Uarei, says is perfectly right, and
he does not seek to change it he is satisfied
with it. Bat why bo? It is a matter of prin
ciple. And he is been in the habit of contend
ing that principles are changeless and eternal.
What then constitutes the difference between
the principles applied in the States or in the
territories? Gen Harris knows very well
that an effort to change the settled policy of
Tennessee upon this subject, would consign
him to inevitable political death. He dares
not apply the principle in Tennessee legisla
tion, which he ia earnest in applying in the
territories. In this State, where the nativecit
izens, no matter of what party, are in Sufficient
numbers to counteract and overwhelm the
evil influences of foreignism, and where the
practical assertion of Alien Suffrage would and
could not operate any material injury to the
State, it is highly impolitio that they should
be allowed to vote. But in Kansas and Min
nesota, where the foreign element is already
Btrong and constantly and fearfully increasing,
and where the it threatens to overshad
ow the native, and determine the fu
ture character of tbe States and their institu
tions, it ia entirely politic eminently just and
patriotic. Precisely where the evil is great
est, where the danger ia most imiuent, they
throw the reins of government into the hands
of the foreign born and unnaturalized, and al
low them, without objection, to make laws and
mould States, excluding the South from an
equal and just participation in the rights of
property I The whole argument convicts Gn
U abbis of inexcusable inconsistency, and shows
him to be a time-server, seekiDg to uphold him
self with the people of Tennessee, while at the
Bame time he is striving to occupy the same
ground with the Northern Alien Suffrage,
Squatter Sovereignty, freesoil wing of his par
ty. We trust that the ballot-box will put a
quietus to such arrant shuffling atid double-
While the majority of Southern democrats
in the Senate, and in the House, we believe,
are opposed to this position of Gen. Harris, as
expressed on the Minnesota bill, and at least
one of their candidates for Congress, Aveht
in the Memphis District, has declared against
it upon the stump, there are two worthies in
East Tennessee, Smith and Watki.ns, who
have bestridden the alien suffrage pony, and
upon it are running a Gilpin sweepstakes for
a re-election. On the passage of the Minne
sota bill, which was presented by a freesoil
delegate from that territory, and reported by
a freesoil committee to the House, we find the
names of these two Tennessee gentlemen on
record with the bady of the Fremont and
Banks supporters of the North. Both Sav
A(itt and Jones voted against the bill, while
Wright was absent on accouut of sickness.
It is due to Geo. W. Jones, however, to say
that his opposition to the bill, was not on ac
count of its alien suffrage feature; but was
grounded upon a donation of 5 per cent, of the
proceeds of the public lauds within the terri
tory, to the territory; and hence he may also
be put down as one of the alien suffrage cham
pions. We wish the people to understand the posi
tion of their leaders upon this subject, and to
vote with their eyes open. Let these gentle
men defend and explain these votes to their
constituents, and, if possible, justify thetn. If
the leaders of the democracy are determined
to thrust this infamous doctrine down tbo
throats of independent, patriotic Tennesseaus,
let them know what it is. Let these leaders
answer for their acts, and he held to a strict
accountability fr the deeds done in the name
of their party, but which a majority of their
party in and out of the State 6pit upon ard
Vo i'opeka Speech.
We spread before the readers of the Patbi
ot Jast week, the speech made by the Hon.
lioot. J. alker, at Topeka, Kansas, to the
Blaok Kepuhlicans. It is a significant incident
in the history of the Kansas intrigues. It
ought to be read aud seriously reflected upou
by every voter in tho South. In Tennessee
especially ought it to be pondered well. But
will the democratic presses give their readers
an opportunity to read it. Will the Union, and
American give the speech a place in its ample
columns ? We suggest to our democratic read
ers to watch its columns closely and see. As
for ouiselves we don't expect anything of the
sert to happen.
The Trenton Independent Journal is jnstly
incensed at an incorrect version of a difficulty
the editor hud with Mr. Etheridge, given by
the Jlichnan Times. Whilst characterizing
the statement in what he regarded as proper
language, he ought to have applied similar ep
ithets to the statement of the Independent
Journal" that Harris "kicked" Hatton at Fay
etteville. t3?The contest in the democratic party
for the United States Senatorship is getting in
teresting. Gov. Johnson had Harris nomina
ted for Governor, with a view to forestall the
claims of West Tennessee, but the friends of
the new couvert, Ex-Gov. Jones, are determ
ined that ho shall not be thrust aside without
an tlfort to re-elect him. To keep him before
the people, a letter on the subject of Distribu
tion was drawn from him, and it has gone the
rounds of the democratic press. Immediately
upon its heels, Gov. Johnson is anuoanced to
make a speech in Shelby between the 20th and
30th of this month. Whilst this rivalry is go
ing on between the two Ex-Governors, other
aspirants are not still. Nicholson has entered
the lists and put forth a speech which he fond
ly thinks will take all the wind out of Gen.
Pillow's sails, and lay the author of the intcr
ninable letter completely in the shade.
We wonld admouish these .g-eutletnea that
they are a "little too fitt." The American
party will have something to aay relative to
the vacaut Senatorship. They don't intend
to elect either of you. They have able men
of their own to select from.

agraph in mind. The National American
spoken of are the gallant band that voted for

Editor Nashville Patriot:
Gcmts: Thinking yon would be glad to bear
from Hatton and Harris in this portion of the State,
I propose to write you a few lines in reference to
the discussion at this place, not to attempt any
lengthy account of the questions at issue, but mere- f
iy to give you tbe result. The crowd was large
and attentive. Gen. Harris opened the debate and
made a speech, which if it had not been answered,
would have passed for an able effort, and for true
doctrine. But, unfortunately for him and his
speech, it was answered not replied to merely
but ansirertd, and that mot completely and tri
umphantly. Before the mighty power of truth and
facts as they were brought to bear upon them, his
fine pun sophistries and cobweb abstractions van
ished into thia air. II at ton gained a decisive and
glorious victory. The like has not been seen here
in irany a year. We are agreeably disappointed
in our young standard-bearer. We had heard good
accounts of him, but he is able and elcquent be
yond what we could have hoped to find him. II is
speech here was regarded by many as one of the
ablest efforts ever made in our town. It was re
plete with argument, eloquence, and wit. You
may rest assured that he has made a fine impres
sion upon our people to-day. He is making a no
ble fight throughout East Tennessee, and bis efforts
will be wtll responded to in August by the people

Editors Patriot: Prduming that even an im
perfect bketch of some of the leading objects which
yearly attract so many visitors from all portions of
the Globe to thia section of wild and wondeiful
scenery, may not be entirely devoid of interest to
your many intelligent readers, I take the liberty of
merely mentioning some of those which seem to me
to deserve a passing notice.
' Profile Rock," or, as is more familiarly known,
"the old Man of tbe Mountains" of which tbe
accompanying U a very correct sketch although
far below the summit of the Mountain, is yet tuselvt
hundred feel, almost perpendicular, abn tho pla
cid little baain of water at its base, called " Pro
file Lake." There are only one or two point3 from
wl.Lh this shape can be seen, for in passing up or
down the road, the nose and face seem to flatten,
until all resemblance entirely disappears. Tradi
tion says the Indians never frequented this epot be
cause of the stern image which tbeyjupposed look
ed constantly upan them, and because, also, of the
Great Spirit, which they supposed him to possess.
The whole length of the profile is near eighty feet.
But on account of the distance from which you ob
serve it, seems to be not more than eight or ten.
The Mountain on which it is formed is called Can
non Mountain, because, of the resemblance to a
cannon, of a tremendous stone near its summit.
Another object of marvelous interest is "Echo
Lake," about half a mile distant. From a noise
made near its centre, it is said, you get three dir
tinct echoes; and from a very loud noise, similar to
the firing of a gun, the echo is so great that it seems
to bo the roaring of artillery. The tradition of the
Indians fleeing from the spot in terror, imagining
their own terrific yells to be the war-whoop of the
Gods, can be easily accounted for.
About four miles to the South of this Lke, near
the road leading to Plymouth, N. H., is worn in
the solid rock a hole seemingly thirty feet in diam
eter, and twenty-five feet deep. The water rushes
in with great force, so much so that its great rapid
ity has worn the present astonishing cavity. There
is but one outlet and that so rapid as to have worn
away the rock to a shape somewhat resembling a
human leg and foot. This great natural curiosity is
called the "Basin."
After leaving the road about a mile to the left,
passing on through wild and rugged gorges, you
behold a silvery sheet of water running down a
smooth ledge of granite about twenty feet wide,
over which for more than a hundred feet it mur
murs beautifully onward, leaping off again iu its
Still further up this stream, in sublime grandeur,
you behold a place known as tbe "Flume." Im
mense walls of solid Granite, twenty to fifty feetiu
height, rise up on either side, in fearful wildness,
tor more than three hundred feet, while through
the rugged boulders, iu the awful chasm below,
flows on the impetuous current. An immense stone
weighing many tons has rolled down from the over
hanging precipice and now bangs suspended mid
way above the rapid stream. Near by it is a well
in the solid rock said to be a hundred and fifty feet
deep, from which, by some miraculous ageucy, a
Southern gentleman is said to have been delivered.
Tis said that curiosity led him nearer the edge
than prudence dictated and hence the accident.
lie left for his home in New Orleane, it is said, dis
gusted with White Mountain scenery.
I cannot close without alluding to our trip to
A party of eleven Ladies and Gentlemen the
second of this season rigged out in heaviest Win
ter costume, started from the "Notch" on last Fri
day morning to make each Lis or ht r first ascent
and those of your readers who have made the ascent
from thti side know something of its difficulties.
We set out, each ou horseback, in single file, pre
ceeded by our guide, to see for ourselves the mag
nificent scenery about which so much has been
said and written. Our path led ua up through deep
ravines and mountain gorges, with little to relieve
the monotony of the scene, save now and then a
murmuring rill as it rippled on in limpid purity
down the rugged steeps, or, els the s'.lvery cas
cade as it leaped from crag to crag in wild onfu
eion. Emerging at length from the wooded reces
ses we found ourselves on the top of the first peak,
from which we were enabled to look down on the
Mountains below with pleasing admiration. Rest
ing for a few moments we resumed eur toilsome
and to tho Ladies seemingly perilous journey,
now ascending tome rugged precipice, and anon
worming our way around some craggy peak which
looked down in awful solemnity for many hundreds
of feet below. Obstacles presented themselves
afresh at every step, and so formidable did they
seem that three of our party returned in dismay
leaving eight of us to make the ascent. Pressing
nlowly onward and ttill on, we at length reached
the summit ten miles, making tbe trip in four
and a half hours. The wind blew aith great vio
lence, and so forcible was it that it was only by
holding on to the immense stones that we could re
tain our positions. From here we had the finest
view I ever beheld. The eye commanded the cir
cumference of the entire group of luountaius
Monroe, Jefferson, Tleasant, Keansarge, Webster,
Willey, Adams, Madison, Lafayette, Jackson, and
all the others which are many.
Si an ding here upon the topmost peak you lock
down upou a "multitudinous sea of Peaks and
KidgeH," which extend in lengthening ranges tp
and down the land, enclosing pleasant plains ar.d
fertile valieye; through which, like silver thread,
the rivers run, and among whose silent fouudatiotit
ueatla tome of the most beautiful and lovely lakes
in the world. Being admonished, however, by our
guide that it might bo well for us to return, we pro
ceeded down the Mouolain about one quarter of a
mile where our horses were in wailing aud be
ing mounted out more resumed the on ard march,
cot forgetting to gither, each ot u, a stone, a
nott-bdli, or some memento to be held in remem

Particulars of the Burning: the
TATIMK5T OT MR. BATES, A PASSXKOEK ON BOARD
Mr. Andrew Hayes, commission agent of Moo-
treaJ gtates: The fire occurred at 5 P. M. The
Montreal had left Quebec at P.M. lhe nrenroite
out in the main saloon in midships immediately op-
issue from one of the state rooms. It was very
dense so dense that in less than five minutes it
was impossible to see anything in the saloon, fa
ten minutes the flunes burst out and filled the sj
loon, and burst out on both sides. I was iu the
stern of the vesl when thisoccurred. I lowered
myself down by the side f the vessel, and while I
was doing so I saw one man trying to get a boit
off the upper deck ; he called me to his assistance ;
he loosed the ropes of the boat and held one end
and I the other to let her down; I slid down the
rope. In less than five minutes the boat was under
water with the crowd that rushed oo it. The flame
soon became fo intense that I jumped out of the
boat into the water, and swam towards another
boat I saw comiDg to our rescue, but it shot past
me and made for the boat at the si ie of the Mon
treal. .1 swam back, and got under the boat that
came to our assistance. There were a number of
females in tbe water, and seven or eight of them
clung to me. These were taken up on by one,
and I waa-disentangled. The boat took its load to
the Napoleon, ard immediately aft r I saw a num
ber of small boat! from the Napoleon reach the
Montreal, and I understood that the boat whieh
first reached the Montreal did not belong to the
Napoleon, but to a pats nger ou board; it was only
after a violent altercation, and the passengers in
sisting on its being s nt that it was sent. I heard
the Captain of the Napoleon cursing the owuer of
the boat. In my opiuion the whole affair was veiy
badly managed. I tnink fully a quaiter of an hour
elapsed before assistance came from the Napoleon.
The Napoleon was between 2u0 and 300 yards
off from us when the fire broke out. The Mon
treal was 250 yards from the shore, and she was
headed for the shore in about ten minutes after
the alarm was given, and the flames bad broken
outia the manner I have already stated; I think
she should have been headed for the shore sooner.
She got aground in the attempt to reach the shore,
and stuck fast nearly as far off the snore as she was
when the fire broke out. I saw no one to give di
rections or to take command on board the Mon
treal; everything was in utti r confusion. I think
she might have got nearer tbe ehore than she did,
with proper management, and the destruction of
life have been less. Nobody saved anything what
ever but what wbb oo tbelr persons. There was
no time to look back. The Montreal is burned to
the water's edge. The boiler exploded some time
after the flames broke out. I heard the Montreal
had been on fire twice previously during tbe after
noon of the same day, and that iu consequence they
had a person to watch. I under;tind the furnaces
were badly secured and the wood woik not prop
erly protected by metal sheeting. I heard this
from the captain of the steamer Napoleon.
The scene was appallingly terrific beyond descrip
tion on board the Montreal, aud on board tbe Na
poleon afterwards the scenee of distress were moi I
heart rending. Here and there one saw persons
seeking for their children, and children seeking for
their parents, with terror and dismay on their faces,
anxious to catch tidings of thoe they loved. I
saw a good many bodies badly burned and disfig
ured, add many persons in intense suffering, which
those ou board tried to assuage by means of scraped
potatoes, &c. There were from 450 to 500 per
sons on board ; thirty of these were cabin passen
gers. One hundred and twenty-five bodies,
living and dead, were taken out of the water; there
were sixteen dead bodies. I only noticed one
Montrealer, Mr. Leslie; I cannot tell if he is saved.
A few sivam to the shore and took the road to
Quebec. We were about twelve miles from Que
bec when the fire broke out. The steerage pas
sengeis were principally Scotch emigrants, from
the John McKe-nzie. There were Iio among them
some (Germans, Canadians and Indians. One fam
ily was named Slot kle, of whom there were six
three of them ure gone. The father of the family,
a'ed 87, is gone. I can't tell how many lives are
lost. I think there mum have been a great many
burned. I can't tell how many swam to the shore
and reached Quebec.
STATEMENT OF THE PDR8KR OT THE NAPOLEON.
About h.lf-nast four o'clock the steamer Mon
treal, Kudolph, Master, took hre about half a mile
above Carouse. The fire burst above the boiler
deck. The Captain immediately got out the hse,
and set all hands to work, who did all they could to
extinguish it. After working a few minutes it was
found impossible to stop the flames, which gained
so fast and spread so rapidly that they could not
get then) under or save the boat. Tbe mate then
got out the jolly boat, into which he placed four la
dies, ox bin passengers, their maid and the cabin
girl. It was his intention to get the women out
first, and he had given orders to that effect; but
when the male emigrants saw that, they made a
rush down the side and into the boat, which was
instan'ly swamped. The mate strove to cut the
hawser so as to save those in the boat, but the rush
was so great it was impossible. The Napoleon was
seen at a considerable distance, and kept aloof from
the burning boat, bbe sent out, however, a large
batteau belonging to some raftsmen she had on
board. Before il reached the Montreal the boat
via in flames all over, ana they were o'.J aoie to
pica up tho.se in the wat r or banging to the wreck.
Fouiteeuof the crew were drowned. The captain,
purser, and all the officers were saved. The cip
taiu wasthe last msn to leave the wreck. Mr. Wil
son, Jr., son of the owner, escaped with difficulty
by swimming ashore. Andrew llayes, who was
saved, was in the water for above an hour. Lie
had stripped himself to his drawers, and had to
borrow clothes from the ofheers of the Napoleon
lie rendered assistance to several unfortunates io
the water, and we understand saved several lives
T ie boat was burned to the water's edge), and up
wards of 200 persons must have perished on board
or have been drowned. The number saved is from
175 to 200 passengers, but their baggage and ef
fects are lo.-t, and some ot the poor creatures
brought up by the steamer Napoleon were almost
in a state of nudity, lhe pasengers were priuci
pal'y emigrants Scotch aud Norwegians. Tbe for
mer are the larger proportion; and roost of t'ie
saved have to lament the loss of their nearest and
dearest relations. Many of them are women and
children. Amongst the latter is a beautiful infant
of about a year old who was picked out ol the wa
ter, but whom nobody claims. Several of those
saved are slightly wounded, but none of them dan
gerously. Tbe steamer, on the fire breaking out,
was immediately beaded towards the ehore, but the
water is shallow, and she run on a rock within
about 200 yards of the shore.
We are sorry to record that the people showed
great inhumanity in not attimpting to rescue the
sufferers, but displayed great activity in stealing
their effects. The pssengera were treated with
the utmost kindness, and supplied with food and
every comfort possible, on board tbe Napoleon,
On the arrival of the Napoleon here, hundreds ol
our citizens were congregated on tbe wharf, and
shortly after she was moored the acting Mayor and
several members of the Corporation were on board
aUo several of the officers of the different nation
societies, who all appeared solicitous to render as
sistance and take care of the sufferers. Ills wor
chip ordered those who had sustained injury to be
al once taken to the hospital, and the national so
cieties will take care of the others.
