Southern Pacific Ifailroad. ,
The Southern Pacific Railroad Company are pros
ecuting; their enterprise with an indefatigable ener
gy which promises auspicious result'.
We hare already mentioned the arrival atShreve
part of the locomotive shipped (rora tbia port. It
baa sinc-j been transported to the road, is no safe
and iound, in running order.
Th contract for the fir, twenty-eiht rtvles, that
is from Like Caddo, in this State, to Marshall, in
T- xas, was takn, as our readers know, by the firm
of Juo. T Grant & Co., with the engagement to com
plot it by the let day of April nt it.
Dr. Grsiit, of that firm, is now on the pround,
act'vtlj at work, and he exprcU, 88 we l- arn, to
bave this section completed by th lut of January
Dezr; thus anticipating the time of contract three
Tue chairs, spikes, and platform ears have al
ready readied this city from New York, and will
soon be ou the road. When they reach there the
luying of the track commence immediately, and
there is no doubt of the completion of the road by
the period J.ihi named. During the next business
seneon, we shall h ire aniiroadiu full operation be
tween Like Caddo and Hirsliall, and it will briug
fi'.y tl.iMi-Mnd bales of cotton to this market.
This will be the first practical benefit growing
oi.t of the new auspices nndrr which the Southern
Pacific iiiilroad is cow placed. It is a most en
trjcoursgi.ig omco for the future. The same ener
gy continued, and supported by the same cot, fi
at oce, whk-h enables the directors to do their work
eo well, will carry the road onward, within the next
year, a etiil lot gcr stretch, and add new confirma
tions to the idia that it wilti.ot l e stopped until it
rescues the far coasts of the Pacific and new sec
tions adding to the visible growth of the prosperi
ty of this city. We have the mct inspiriting ac
conntr' of tiie progress of the surveys Westward.
Tti. sa 8ioe contractors have agreed to grade and
pr- pate for the iron forty-two miles furthrr by the
1st of January, 1869; and if they are supported by
early provision of the superstructure, there Is no
reason to doubt that this eettioa loo will bo com
pleted, in anticipation of thecontract time, and that
there will be sktentt mil' s of the Pacific Railroad
Completed and in use by the Ml of next year.
TbeeLip Lebanon, which I. ft Sew York on the
17ih ulL, will bring another first class locomotive
and oib r materials, and these shipments will be
diligently fo lowed ly others.
These results and this activity are inspiriting.
The road is evidently in fathful band', and the
confidence which wa. vidded thera in this city is
fully vindicated. The general route by the way of
Ti xas and El Paso has lately received such a vulu
able testimony In its favor, by the s l.ction of the
overland mail route ou that line, as the best line of
access to the Pacific, and every development giv. s
to this enterprise such evident advantages, physi
cal M.d financial, in the local superiority of the line,
and the great inducements afforded by the wise
liberality of Texas, that few years will elapse b -it
is recognixed as the national ioute to which all
otheia will be ot.ly branches and feeders. N. O.

C5F The correspondent of the New Orleans
Picayune, writing from Liverpool, says :
I learn on uuthoritv.that cannot be denied, that
the Persia, on her last trip to this port, was con
demned having thirteen feet of water in her hold,
and two of her compartments filled with wattrl
The remaining ccnij artmenta were all that saved

were kept in Messed ignorance of any such fact.
On the anival of the steamer she was immediately
placed upon the dry dock lenced entirely in from
the public gaze, and completely encased hi a new
auit of iron; iron plutes of au ii ch iu thickness,
together with knei a of enormous six--, were also
used in strengthening the vessel on the inside'and
tn .ny other repairs uudergoue before ehe was fit
This sad state of affairs is the result of forcing
and straining the ship in the hope of gaining a few
Lours In the ruu, and the lives of hundreds of in
nocent travilers are jeopardix.d to t fleet. This is
a n laticholy admission, but the fact of the 6teanit-r
(almost a new vessel) being knot ked to pieces eo
eoon is an an. pie confirmation of its truth.
The n ports current for a year past iu the Ui ited
States wiib refererc" to the Scotia, (a vesf-el in
tended to beut the Persia, aud said to have be- n
Dear y completed), are wholly defctitute of lourdi
tion, as I understand the keel of the vessel bus not
even beeu laid.
The activity cont'n.ues, and holders. In view of
tho large imports, are pressing their stock at less
prcfiis, in most cases, than they anticipated. Our
tables of receipts show that tbe goods are pouring
in at an unprecedented rate. The imporleis say
that tbe stock is coming early to take advantnge of
the reduction of duty m competition with fabrics
already on the maiket, add we thii k it very likely
that after S ptenibt r opens there m:iy be a compar
ative decrease. The receipt u-ust be liree, how
ever, for tbe.next four or five weeks, and this flve
tUdlly shuts out the cry of a short supply, proving
tbe trutb of our representations upon ibis su ject.
Ihere have beeu during (be week large sales ol oil
wool pt. Mb aud fancy stuff goods at 40 to $1 25,
but mostly at 45a8(K-. The supply has been abuu
f'ant, ana these who sold early will have done the
best. In si ks there is no change. Rich, heavy,
pure silks are comparatively scarce and high, and
alt kirds of silk goods consuming much raw mate
rial u.v.bt come iuvoiced at a higher rate. Ribbons
are plenty is medium and low grades, but rich
wide goods are in moderate surply and firmly held.
B.iiisU goods are soiling slowly, and for the uiot
pail are paying poorly, although the high price of
cotton has helped the consumption of low-priced
liuen fabrics. New York Commercial Advertiser.

Horace ITIn j nard.
The Knoxville Register and Whig of the
14th iDst., come3 to us with the cheertDg
intelligence that Horace Mavnard, Esq.,
is certainly elected, by a majority of not
less than two hundred. The list of mem
bers as we gave it last week, is, therefore,
correct. The delegation stands three
Americans, and seven sham democrats.
The three American?, Ready, Zollicoffer
and Matnard are men of whom any party
may be proud. Air. Matnard is a new
member; and we venture to predict that
be will take high rauk in the House of
Representatives. We doubt whether he
has a superior in that branch of the Nation
al Legislature. His election will give great
satisiaction to the American Party through
out the btate, as his defeat would have
rendered their regrets for the general dis
aster still more poignant.
The IVetr York Cuatcm House.
There appears to be considerable delay
in the delivery of goods through the New
York Custom House, and importing mer
chants in that city are consequently in a
"peck of trouble." They went so far as
to suggest a plan of improvement, but it
appears that apon trial it failed to afford a
remedy. Their plan was that the Custom
House cartmen should be charged with the
delivery to the importers of all goods ex
amined. "Ever since that day," says a
writer in the Herald
H has "r ot received one pirg'e examined cae
by Custom House employees; but only by his own
cartmen, who, by dint of perseverance, and after a
delay ol from three to fourteen dayp, succeed. -d in
extricating his cases from the warehouse libvrinth.
The investigating committee, in thus limiting
their labors to the proposal of a measure for dtliver
ing goods worse thau the evil i'eelf, and pro
noui ced eo by nil in port- rs who have hlready tried
it have los"t tijjht of sll th- minor ui s wide', be

A fe examples from his own experience during
the new rrgime aillgivean idea of the many griev
ances that ar- actually xistirr, and wliirh the in
vestigating committee have not even touched upon
in their report:-
1. An ord r for di livery being made out with
the marks of the cases all wrong. Dlay in pro
curirg a new order, two days.
2. Several orders for delivery being lost on
their pBg from office to office. Delay in hunt
irg for the lost ones, and procuring new orders,
3 Orders made out in the name of soother
firm, and the accidental discovery of the mistake
aft'r a week's delay.
These instances might be multiplied ad infini
tum, but they are already more than sufficient
causes of complaint."
A number of expedients are recommend
ed to remedy the evils complained of. Some
of the merchants have commenced import
ing through Boston, preferring to pay the
additional cost, than to submit to vexatious
The imports into New York of foreign
goods, &c, are much larger this season
than usual. This may account in n great
degree for the difficulties at the Custom
House. These difficulties may not occur
again. Nevertheless, they afford addition
al reasons why there should be lines of
packets between Southern ports and the
principal ports of Europe. The wholesale
merchants of the South, importing goods
through the New York Custom House, are
subject to vexations and losses by the fail
ures to make prompt delivery. There is
even less remedy for them than for the
New York importer who is on the spot to
look after his interests. These things wou'd
not occur if the South were not in commer
cial vassalage to the North. Put Balti
more, Norfolk and Charleston in direct
communication with Liverpool and Havre,
and a new era will dawn upon our section
of the Union.
Gen. Win. Walker.
We learn from the Savannah Georgian
that Gen. Walker made a speech in Savan
nah in the 12th, giving a history of his
struggles iu Nicaragua aud in vindication
of his cause. The Georgian says " The
rapturous applause and the eager attention
with which his speech was received, was an
ovation of which he mi;ht well be proud,
and at the same time, furnished the highest
evidence of the faithfulness with which he
related the one aud the force and ability
with which he vindicated the other."
The Georgian adds .
We regret that the epac of a new-piper artirle
prevents us from doing full jt.atice to this the most
important, fi rcibl and iuu resting portioa of On.
Walker's spe.ch, but fie cogency of his argument
upon this point, the fircit 1j arrny of facts brought
locustaiu it, fully warranted the appeals he made
to Southern uwn to sustain him, and were sufficient
to convince all thinking and ur prejudiced ininda
that the destiny of the South is inseparably licked
wi'h that of Nicaragua.
Hi.b as was the opinion we bad farmed of the
ab'liihs of Gen. Walker, it was greatly heightened
by his effort on Tuesday night.
He exhibited a clearness of intellect, a el rength
of argument, and a knowledge of political historv,
which are declined to win for bim laurels as a states
man which will not fide by the side of those bis
valor and t-kill have won for him as a Soldier.
We were tur prised to Gnd iu tbe chn, quiet, and
unpretending looking man, such a rare combination
of excellent qnslili. s us an orator. It is a matter ot
no uncer ainiy now, that ho will shortly return to
Nicaragua, aud that Le will be succeful iu firmly
eMtblishing himself and a republican government
in that distracted country.
ErifcUnd hcrse f siauds ready to aid bim, if he
will but consent to lend himself to her policy and
tohul out his native country from the tutu.-e ben-
tit to be derived from the development of the
rich resources of Outr.l America. It would be un
iie nd impolidcjn us to despise tue commercial
nd ot ur aivictng.a which must accrue lo us iu
event of hi j success.
We may tafelv then predict that when he returns
again he will carry with Lim the D.cesaaiy

Manchester, Alderman Mason stated some inter
esting facts in reUtion to the value of cotton, not
only as an article of manufacture, but as a boud of
Irieudtdiip between Great Britain and tbe United
Ho said that the first bale of cotton was imported
into England from America in 1782. At that time
the ntir consumption in England amounted to
20,000,000 pounds, nearly all of which came from
ihe Britirh est Iudies, the French and Dutch
possessions, and from Turkey. The consumption
at the present time amounts to 900,000,000 pounds;
no less than 700,000 workmen ar engaged m the
trade, and a population ot from 8,000,000 to 4.000,
000 is incirectiy dependent upon it. At thia mo

looms al work, or there would be that nuuiWr but

ports of England a stock of cotton equal to ihi ty

it had dwindled down to about twelve weeks' con

?Ir. Calhoun on Alien SnCrajre.
A few days ago we spread hefore our readers
ropoit of the spepch recently delivered by the Ron.
John Bell, et Nashville, Tennessee, in which,
araonz other tonics discussed by tbe distinguished
epenker on that occasion, the question of alien
suff ae was briefly considered. In another part of
to-day's Intelligencer the reader will fi?.d an un
punished speech of Mr. Caxhocs, delivered in the
S-'rtof the Unitod Stiles on the 21 of April.
1836, in which the same subject is treated at lpnc'h
with a cogency and condensation of argument which
mark sll that proceeded from the logicof mind of
th great South Carolina statesman. TI i sn-ch,
it appears, was rot, at the time of its delivery, in
clod(l in the Congressional Dehatog, bnt, being
reti ined for revision by Mr. Cali). ca, first became
accessi- le to th public in his Works, as edited by
Mr. Orallk. The speech, therefore, msy be con
sidered, in ita present shape, otdy the more authen
tic and authrr'ttivp as an exposition of Mr Cal
houn's views upon tbe quPS'ion whether a Stte, a
Territory, or Congress itself has the power to m ike
an alien a citizen to the extent of endowing bim
with the riht of suffrage. Mr. Calhoun denies
the existence of such a power on the purt of any
of these authority s, and enters info an elaborate
firzument for the purpog of showing the anoma
lies which would result from the admission of ruch
a principle. "To suppose,' be remark, "that a
"State can maVe an alien a citizen of the State
"or, to present the question more speci-illy, ein
' confer on him the rig lit of vnlivg would involve
" th absurdity of giving him a direct and irrme
"diate control over the action of the Gener.il Gov
ernment, from which he has no risht to claim
" protrcion. and to which he has no risiht lo pre
sent a petition." Tbati,Mr Calhoun considers
the right of suffrage as not onlv an incident, but a
t'st of citizenship; and if it is not competent for
a Stste to confer this right opon tbe alien, still less,
he Rrgues, can a Territory endow bim with a fran
chise which is characteristic of the citizen, since a
Territory can possess "no power except such as is
conferred bv Congress, " and Congress "has no au
thority over the subject, under the Constitution,
exc- pt to p.'s nnif. rm laws of natural'zion."
We think it wi'l b- denied ny none that the be
stowal of the right of suffrage npou aliens, whether
by authority of State, Ter itory, or Congress is an
exercise of power not contemplated by the framers
of the Constitution, and one which cannot be re
conciled with the genius and spi'it of that instru
ment. It mav be remarked, however, that the Con
sti'urion nowhere undertakes to d fine in express
and uniform terms the qualifications of voters in
the several States; but in the ouly clause which
alludes to this subj -ct that relating to the elec
tion of members of the House of Representatives
it provides that "the electors in eaob State shall
have the qunliScations requisite for electors of th
mo-t numerous branch of the State Leg'slatur
thus leaving each State to dttern ine those qul fi
cations according to its own discretion. But as, at
the time of the formation of the Constitution, tbe
right of suffrage was deemed an incident ot citizen
ship only, and as the Constitution, in express terms
reserves to Congress the power of establishing
"an uniform rub-i of naturalization," and thereby
removing the disabilities of alienage with regard
to eligibility to certain offices, ii is clear that the
spiiit, if not ihe letter of thit insirtiment is violat
ed by extrt'iing the elective franchise to other than
citiz us of the United States, either natural born
or adopted. And if it would seem improper for a
State to assume the exercise of euch a power, still
more anomalous is the action of Congress in its le
gislation for the Territories of the country, when,
in contraveniiou of the prerogatives reserved to it
by the CoriSiitctiun with respect to the removal of
alienage, it proceeds to invest unnaturalized aliens
with one ol the most distinctive features of a citi
zen of the Ui ited States, by conferting upon them
in 8'ich Terutories tbe rijjht ol suffrage. When
tbe framers of tbe Constitution provided for tbe en
actment of a uniform rule of naturalization through
out tbe United states, they evidently supposed mat
Cougrebs, as well as the respective Slates, would
ab-uin Irom endowing unnatural zed aliens with
this right of citizenship, though it must ba admit
ted that the Coustitutution, in express terms, ap
plies no rtstrictious whatever to alien suffrage, and
contuius, we believe, no other provi-ions with re
sp-'C! to foreigners than that which relates to thi'ir
ut iralizjtiou, and those which define the periods
within which naturalised citiz-ms shall be eligible
to certain offices. Nut. Jnteliigetietr, llth Aiy.

lo Ike I'ublic.
For the first time in my life do I place my name
be'bre the public iu a newspaper, not th t 1 think 1
am qualified to come btfore the tcrutinizing eye of
th learned world, jet il is the privilege of every
American citiz in to express his sentiments with re
grd to the political topics dividing the public n.ind,
and the public acts of public men. These are priv
ileges handed down from our ancestry and a glo
rious privilege it is.
One of those public acts I wish to say a little
about, at the present (or I might have said public
errors) is that c Jinmitted by the democratic conven
tion which nominated Tbos. Avebt, at Somerville,
for Congress, wben Mr. avebt. last fall, in inakiug
speeches in this Congressional district opeuly de
clared tnit he was a Whig, aud still added, to more
forcibly illustrate his position, thit he was a "Henry
Cly Whig." Well, we ll know what the po.i icl
opinions o' Cliy were. If he was a Chy Whig, he
was a pretty man to receive the nomination of the
D mocraiic party to be run by tbe Democrats of
this Cnnressional District, when he was urged by
Jlr. St- pit ksh, upon every occasion, during tbe late
csnvai-s, to dclare wh.t prty he belonged to, and
what w. re bis answeis? Di'i he say that he was a
Democrat? No ; be said he was the nominee ol the
Democratic party. And after eulogizing the Dem
ocratic pirty, there closed, ihii king he had given
satisfaction to that ptrty. If m re eulogy of the
Democratic party is the standard by which we are
to know a Democrat, and not eudoising the princi
ples that party adheres to, I think it is time we
s'-oul I receive no more into our r.mkd of that stripe.
What assurance have we that Mr. Avicar willc-rry
out the priucif l.-s of the Demo -ratic pirty, when he
ays he it a "Clay Whi-?" Wnat were the opiu
iotis of Mr. Clat io regard to ths distribution poli
cy? We all know that he wasan unswerving advo
cate of Distribution. Tet Mr. Avekt prefers to be
neutral on that question, and treat it with silent
contempt; and aajs there is no vitality iu the ques
tion. The Democrats endorse thai. Now, gentle
men, tell me wby Ur. Harsis labored mute than
h .If the time allotted him in the Court House in
J .ckon, to prove ttiat that policy was unconstitu
tional? It whs because the public miud was divi
de d on that question, and were anxiously enquiring
after truth, tnd b cause it was bia duty, as a pub
lic in u to declare bis views upon that question.
Yet Mr. AvaaTsaid it was a humbug a bobby to
ride into oflico upon, and yet both of these men
w ere presented to us upon the same party ticket.
Mr. ErucKioGK, at Miilio, in my hearing, said be
was a "Clay Whig," and lookup all tbe political
ti pics that divide ihe "Clay WLis"atid the Demo
crude prty- ti scusseJ them, one by one, in the
preseLce of an au iieuce of about one thousand per
rons, fie fir-t look up tbe bank and di-cussed it;
rn it the tariff; then the Distri mlion, and so on,
and said he was a "Clay Wh g,n an J be is ihe must
odious man now in the Uuited S'.ales to the Demo
cratic party. I cannot for my 'tie discriminate be
tween ihe positions ot Avekt and ETakBtnat, it
bare assertion gives position.
Mr. CcaRiN was my choice, and he was the choice
of every good Democrat. A man that bus endeav
ored to "uphold the Democratic party through thick
and thin done more, yes, far more to promote lbs
pirty in this Congressional District than any forty
democrats in it, and be hd to be eacrified jastat
the lime when we could have rtmuuerated him lor
hi many hard fought battles. But ibey must pro
mote a man who cared nothing for the party or its
principles a man that baa done all iu I i power lo
demolish the Democratic party for the last several
years a man that said be wan 01d Ctay Whig,"
and hs m ver taken il hack. The Clay party is tin
same that the Democratic parly he warred against
for more than thirty years paat, and yet the Demo
cratic party can meet in convention, and select a
man bound to the principles ot this out Clay party
to ao bim honor ia Lrwf.-ret ca to such a man as
Cuatus, our noble suudard-bearer ia limea when
succer was doubtful.
Well, I have ever professed to be a Democrat,
and have closely adhered to the principles of thai
puty, but such proceedings don't suit me. lam
