NASHVILLE UNION.
Thk Nasiiviu e I'.vion was commenced a few weeks
siuce, for the puriOHe ol opposing the Rebel Southern
Confederacy, and of advocating tho restoration of
rcuor il authority, without any abatement, over all
the Slates winch have attempted to secede. It lioliln
as friends all who support, ami as foes all who oppose
tlie l nion or the htates. It has no watchword but
Fkkkixim and Natioimutt.
With rebels and truilo has no compromipo to
make. It contends for tho Federal Constitution and
the Laws made In purnuanco thereof as tho Pi-i-kkvi
Liworrus Land, anything iu tho Constitution and
Ijiwsofany of tho States to tho contrary notwith
standing. It contends for tho I nlon of the States, because
without it the preservation of our liberties ami Inptl
tutions and the nrguiizntinn of society itself uro
wholly Impossible. Therefore, whatever stands In
.ho way ol crushing out tho rebellion and restoring
o Kiiiou munv periKn, no matter liy what tiamo it bo

anarchy, wo opieal for support. I Ait tho names of

is or may bo suspended or disturbed; that
it isniy purpose upon the next mcetine;
of Congress to again recommend the
adoption of a practical measure tender
ing pecuniary aid to tho free acceptance

and which States may then have volun
tarily adopted, or thereafter may volun

shall on that day be in good faith repre
sented in the Congress of tho United
States by members chosen thereto at

fied voters of such States shall have par
ticipated, shall, in the absence of strong
corroborative testimony, bo deemed con
elusive evidence that such State and the

slaves.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set

The Maryland Secessionist Farmer.
An army correspondent of the J'.uffalo
Kr press has made the following graphic
sketch of the Maryland farmer, which
is said to square with the experience of
our ollicers :
HIS I.MERAMTY.
"When your camp is in the nejighbor-
hood of his house he sends you presents
of peaches, pies, aud worm-eaten apples
lie cultivates your acquaintance and al
lows his slaves to sell yon milk, and then
in a little while he puts iu his bill for all
his presents, and asks you a monstrous
price; and when he charges you with
gallons of milk where you had quarts, he
coolly assumes that you shall pay for all
ho sends by his negro, and not for the
moiety which you receive. And then
when you tell him to go where he is not
due until he departs ibis life, ho comes
down several pegs aud calls it a misun
derstauding.
HIS IIOSriTAI.ITV.
"You ride up, hungry as a wolf, to his
gate. 1 here is no tavern for miles. II
informs vou with a princely and baroni
al air, that ho has entertainod thousands
and never took a picayune lrm any
man; that no one was ever turned from
his door, and says, '(ientlemen, won t
you alight?' You go in, he gives you
good coffee, greasy ham and water logged
potatoes, (he is usually just out of but
ter,) and when, like a northern mudsill
you offer him pay, he says: "No sir; I
can always givo a eiiilcinau a meal
without pay; that s lor the women or
niggers; 1 never take no pay myselt.
Aud so you pay the women or niggers
double price for a poor meal, and he takes
the money away from tluni as quick as
your back is turned.
HOW UK I'KALS I.V KoltAiiK.
"You pitch your camp in his neighbor
hood, lie has a straw stack, half this
tles and the rest weeds. You are in a
hurry, and the quar'erniastcr is busy ;
he wont sell anything, and you tako
what you want, he suggesting that as
the easiest course, and talking good na
turedly while your men go oil' with the
straw. The next day ho goes to I'alti
inore, tills his own etory to (itncral
Wool, and you get a reprimand for pi li
ning. CoiiM-qiienee is, our Maryland
farmer pels twenty dollars a ton for lour
times as much straw as he ever had.
This he thinks bitter for hiin th.iu hou
est weight."
Some atio!oer predicts that Dec.
2,'ith is the only Im.kv day for uiiir
ryiiig this year. Mauiagcabht young
pel sons h ill please make a botu of it.

Large Deposit of Honey.
A somewhat singular discovery was
made in a house in St. Louis. The Argus
gave the following account of tho story:
Tho inmates of one of our largest up
town mansion houses, a few days sirce,
were surprised to lind a large number of
bees flying about in two of the upper
rooms. As tho liltlo fellows continued
to occupy tho places, a beo naturalist was
sent to investigate. On uttering the
rooms, he exclaimed : "You have honey
somewhere here," and proceeded to search
for it. On removing the fire-boaid, he
discovered that onu lluo of tho chimney
was full of honey-comb, which was
hanging down into I he fire-place, and tho
honey dropping from it ; proceeding to
the top of tho house to sound the chim
ney, ho found it the same; one Hue of (ho
chimney was full, and tin bees were in
dustriously at work there also.
These Hues of the chimney had never
been used; they were plastered smooth
inside, and v re. pi i lectly dark, a stono
having been placed on the top of each
Hue. The bees had descended the ad
joining llin s, ami found small holes about
ten inches from tho top of the chimney,
h ading into the closed flues, and through
these holes they had made their way in
and out. They have, as is supposed,
occupied theso places for three years,
having been kept warm in winter by tho
heat from the adjoining Hues. On re
moving the fire-board, the bees, Seeing
the great light which had broken in upon
them, descended to tho room and gather
ed on the windows, until they were cov
ered to the tii kticis of tin. c inches. It
j estimated that there ate iu the two
Hues from lO.OOU to bees, and from
'JMiO to IJ.OOO pounds of honry.
