Lxik inr at the map, it will Ik- seen that Brownsville is m-arfVas central to the territory of the Jlistrict as Jackson; and, a; the railroads, quite as central to pojiila!ion, a- to which Memphis ini'lit :is well suit the convenience of; litu-ani.. and the bar as ether place.

They insist that the Democracy ol Haywood have done their whole political duty us succcks fully as othe.s, and that, if any politi cal rea-on -Imuld be looked to, the Haywood ooaatjp tax-jiayers desrve as well of the Legislature ils any other citizen-. We think that questions of this Mtrl should not be entertained. But the place of the court should lie determined by the convenience of the bar and the people. As THLltE is no longer any doubt that a Convention will be called, and that every re-ident of the Suite over 21 years of a. - entitled to vote for iiu-mlier- to tin- Convention, it is now time tu select the candidate-, three for Shelby county, and one answering to the Floater of the L gi-lature.

If Dr. White now w ishes and desires to do the upright, honest and honorable thing lor the county, and to have any thing like a good name, let him come out with all he knows. That done, we pledge him forgiveness for acting -ii long as a member of the Hoard of (ountv Commissioners, and that he may go scot free with all he has ever "i.Tin- it ma . i 4 ri,n r,a Special dispatche- to W estern pa- pers say that " the heavy break down in gold it is nowjknown is caused by a i Liu .,.,, swroturv HniT- '111.11 mini . . . ...... ... ....i-o w. i.i.will.inaveryfewwei'ksnakia grand coup and at once return to sjie- ..A..n.Ut,t tlinu f.irefjillinir the de- cision of the United Stetoa Supreme I'ourt, which will undoubtedly declare the legal tender act unconstitutional about the end of the year. This ac tion of the Secretary will undoubtedly cause temporary distress throughout the country, create a panic in produce and general merchandise; but as the rte has to be taken some timefhe pn-ent is considered-the most con venient, politically better indeed than at any other period not so remote from a Presidential election." It is further said that among "the numer- i ous financial measures in contempia- tion by Secretary Hoitwkll, is one I to replace the five-twenty bonds about j due by a large foreign loan. This has often been contradicted, but is never- less now about to be agreed upon with the agents of foreign bankers now in this city." It does not follow that Fathei Hy a i i nth e, the great French pulpit ora- Xot. is no Catholic, because he i- act u- ! ally catholic, magnanimous and lib- n,., a member of the Catholic Church, asserts that right. Whether he w ill continue to be recognized, remains to be -ecu. There is no greater cruelty, nor any more evident crime than that of ostracising and undervaluing men on account of. their opinion. These an. n(t th.' result of volition, but of intellectual and moral forces, not to be overcome. Make it unpopular or injurious to lie known as holding a true opinion or a false one, and men will act from motives growing out of st ilish natures, and cease to follow their convictions. Make it popular and advantageous to belong to a par ticular church, or avow a particular opinion, trueor false, and you will have the land swarming with hypocrites. Freedom of opinion, not merely the oretic, is a safeguard. That public sen Bmrnt. mure feared than the laws, which compel men often to conceal their opinions, or to avow those they . do not at heart believe, is a form of j tyrannous manifestation which is In 1 finitely demoralizing, and often drives ! men into infidelity to all religions and hatha, w hen they are too frank and candid in their natures to resort to the conceal aunts of hyiKx-ritical pre it.j,.r . set the cousequences be what they may to himself (and it would not be strange if he should tie eMommuiiicattsJ from the church nl his choice) we are glad to see this learned and eloquent divine apeakiog ! his convictions outright, and fearless of cousetiuence. It is what would be j.,..,. i,v ,.V(.rv ,..., Df everv faith if sermons, leiiverel at Notre Lame in ieee!u!H r ol last year, he quottsl the words tf the celcliiat.-d Ir. Nkwmax, in w hich he said of himself, that he "had never sinned against the light," and added the following comments: If this highly rifted man, this gen erous heart, this former Preaideat, who waited, if not for the silvery hair 1! ago, yet l;r the maturity of liis aaaal d,to return to the visible unity of the Church if this man "never sinned against the. light," by what right dare you, unju-t and impetuous in. in, atigaflatiaeaa liars and pvopheta of evil, all those who belong to Pro testant congregations ? 1 shall never M-rmit you to do so. I have just re lUI'nd Imaa Kngland, the country of I'rotestitiitism, ( tjfttleniT, and I am biinud to acknowledire. in honor and truth, that i found them not only i great citizens, but likew ise great Chris !

But is it not 1 faith which removes mountains? Is it not duttity which bridges every gap" Nut iniie!noUs discussion nor embittered controversies, can restore i unity, but charity will do it, lienevo- lence and the noble virtues of truly ( 'hristian hearts. You will, then-fort-, let nu- shake their hands, and pres tliesesimvrc, though erring, Christians to my heart, and in this embrace will 1 reieat my song of praise: " How good ami how pleasant it is for breth ren to dwell in unity. If not of the same body, yet of the same soul, in the in (table unity of the Christian Church and of Jesus Christ." This is the language of a large heart- without which it Is nothing. In another sermon he was still more out poken in his charity taking in all mankind, and sees good in the more exalted problems Til Islauiism itself. We wi-h we had more of iiuch men, capabia of looking beyond their noses, and not condemning all the ' world lic.-ules themselves, becaune, i like Lock i '.-, man iu the fog, they see , ever.vll .ng .so clear around them.

TDK sfllElUKE's AVCTIOXEER. The resKftablf class of auctioneers, of whom there are many wealthy and worthy representatives in New York, are generally men of education, and possessed ol a remarkable know ledge of the value of all kinds ol goods and merchandize. The one thing neces sary to the success of an auctioneer is inflexible honesty, that buyers and sellers may both leel perfect con tidence in him. The auctioneer who has once achieved that very enviable reputa tion may reckon upon abundant pro fessional boaiaeaa. It is somewhat amusing to attend a shwitl's auction tale, ami even iustrnc- tive ill a business point of view. Mr. Kichard Walters, the present incum bent of that office, is a keen, sharp man, who has given much general satisiaction, both to the sheriff, whom he is in duty bound to please, to the creditor, w hose tlaim is to be satisfied, and to the people and dealers w ho fre quent his sales. .Merchants and traders eagerly watch the actions of the auctioneer, who amuses them with witty elaborations upon the value, uses and appliances ot the article, and manages to keep his patrons in the best ii humor. There is merit in his jests free from the cant and slung of other branches of the profession. His bid ders are always in good humor, and hence give higiier prices for articles than they would at regular trade a lea. For all his manifold ilaUea, the sheriffs auctioneer must lie a Ban o quick perception, calm temper, and Steady w it. He has to please ail par ties, settle buyer's disputes, and to transact his business so as to legiti mately keep w ilhin the law, and en tail no suits upon the sheriff, who is responsible for all errors or want of judgment on the part of his deputies and auctioneer. Besides all this, the auctioneer must be thoroughly conversant with the value of all kinds of giKuls, wares and merchandise, from the richest Brus sels carpet down to the commonest article iu culinary use. He must know the worth of plate, Baoks. paintings, and furniture oi all kinds, in order to impress their value upon buyers. He must iiave a pretty shrewd knowledge of the law too, in order not to involve tin- sheriff in needless lawsuits, as many- auctioneers have done hei lofore, though Mr. Hit-hard Walters, the present auctioneer, is free from the odium ol any such mistakes. At his saU-s great rtiayatfh and syste matic order an- characteristic of hi business doings. The sheriirs auctioneer is rich in shrewd dodges to invite custom, and a recent episode at a sale of a house in Chatham street exemplifies Mr. Wal ter's admirable H-rceptiou. The property offend was not of the most marketable character, in fact it w as a cry bad lot, BM buyers were slow in bidding. The mictioinjer was at his wit's end to stimulate them. The god of music inspiri-d them, however, in the personages of a couple of Italian minstrels, who dropiKsl in to pick up ' a tew penalea.

The Congressional Committee on elections, through their clerks, are busy preparing the evidence of the many contested cases to be brought ! before them next month. There ure ' nineteen of these contested cases, and ! the labor involved in arranging and j digesting the testimony is very great. In the Louisiana case the evidence ! alone will make a volume of several bandred page; and in the Covode case in Pennsylvania the expense of taking testimony has been already ijuite large. A rich vein of copper has been dis covered on the land of Dr. J. W. Cates. in Blount count v. eitrht miles ea-t of Marysville. A halt has been sunk in the base of Little Pine Moun lain, and the digging indicate rich j se-imens of iron ore as well.
