The Louisville Journal says the aide and patriotic speeches of Mr. Clay nnd Gen. Houston have produced terrible consterna tion among the two Utile squads nf d is. unionisis. The traitors were plotting their foul schemes nnd fancying what prodi giously large men each one of them would be when the Union was shattered into three or lour confederacies. They were beginning to feel extremely happy, when Mr. Clay's speech knocked tlietn right and left, thrusting the ground (Vom under their feet, very desperately, hut, after Ceneral Houston turned his battery on them, their choeks were suflusnl with shame, and ince then they have not known where to turn for hope or consolation.

A Ql'F.STION FOR THE SCHOOL BoYS. There is a larmer who owns one hundred acres of land, divided into four unequal portions, the largest of which is planted in pple trees; under each tree there are ten sows Willi Inters of 12 pigs each. Now how many little boar pigs are there in the whole lot, and what will they weigh when pork is worth 811 per barrel? A colored boy in the oflice of the Louis ville Journal recently fell out of Ihe win dow, about twenty feel, striking on roof of a small out house.

Public expectation was excited to the highest point of interest nnd anxiety ns to the course of Mr. Webster. The galleries of the Senate, the chamber itself, nnd every avenue leading to it, were thronged before twelve o'clock. Ladies and many distin guished persons were on the floor of the Senate. Anions; the persons within the bar, I noticed General Hamilton, of Souih Cnrolina, Governor Marcy, R. J. Walker, and fir Henry liu liver. Defore twelve i o clock, it w as found expedient to close Hie doors against further ingress. Hundreds of persons among whom were many had come from Boston. New York, Richmond, and the country around, expressly to hear Mr. Webster did not get admission. Mr. Webster spoke about three lirurs nnd a half, and, n he said, with no purpose of ambitious display. He came here, he said, to speak fir the Union. His exordium was simple nnd impressive, and his peroiation grand. I confine myself merely to a statement of his own views and purposes ns to the ques tions before the Senate. To render ihem distinct and plain, I limy stale them as follows : 1st. That the chniacter ofthe whole ter ri'ory bplonging to the United Slates, as respects the existence of slavery in it, is alrendv fixed hy unalterable laws. 21. Thai the faith of the United Stales is . pledged to tin' execution of the contract between llie United Slales and Texas, to ' admit new States, not ninre than lour in ' ininiber. from hpr territory, when they shall have sufficient population; nnd thai, ns slavery existed in Texas si the time of an nexation, those were to be slaveholding Slales. 3.1. That California and New-Mexico should be subject to no law respeciins slavery except the law of nature ami physi cal geography, &c, which utterly excluded African slavery. 4ih. fie was conirnt with the law of nature, ami would put ho U'ilmot in it. He denied ihe right of the Legislature of Massachusetts to instruct bun to vote1 againsi i ne mciaies oi common sense, anu he would not vote lor the Proviso, it offered. otii. New olexico, ir ever settled, would years afterward you will find bin) sirug-neces'-nrily he free from African slav ry, gling on under a double load of debts nnd or any tiling of the sort, except peonage or predial service, C h. He dwelt upon and strongly enfor ced the mural and constitutional obligations of the North to enrry into t-flect the stipula tion lor the surrender of fugitive slaves On this poiiii he was very strong, as indeed, upon every other. He argued that the j Constitution was addressed lo Stales, nnd bnui.d them ns well ns individuals, and Ihe States were bound to carry this clause ol the Constitution into effect. He would cheerfully support the Rill on this subject now before ihe Senate. 7ih. lie dep'ecaied all the agitation of abolitionists, m whatever lorm it was kept up, and especially that of legislative resolu tions nnd instructions. Slh . He wns willing thnt the South should be aided in removing free neg'oes from their territories by the General Gov eminent, nnd in sending Ihem to Liberia or elsewhere. He would vole for an ap propriation for this object lo the extent o! the whole sum which the Treasury had received from the public lands, if the South desired it. Dili. He would discuss the question of the boundaries of California, territorial gov ernments, &c, when the subject came properly belore the Senate. These are the general views ol Mr. Web ster bearing on the vexed question. The majority of ihe Senate and the auditors were highly gratified at iheir character. They are considered as bringing us nearer than we ever were before lo an adjustment. In regard to ihe Wilmo! Proviso, Mr. Webster treated it with utter cr.ntempl and disdain. There is nothing in satire and irony that he does not employ against it. He had lo fight a battle against Northern prejudices, and every instrument which logic and the whole armory of sarcasm could furnish he employed. When he brought up his heavy artillery, and enlorced the moral obligations of compacts, he was mighty. He was overpowering in reflec tions on the conduct of Northern democra cy, in regard to some of these things. It is a question how far the North will immediately suppart Mr. Webster's posi tions; but it is believed he will prevail. The conservatives in the North will rally in his support. The South and West will back him. Washington, March 9. Mr. Webster's speech has poured oil on the troubled waters. His speech has given us a conGdence in ihe speedy restoration of harmony lo Congress and ihe country, which was unfelt before. It is remarfca able that not one conservative and concili atory speech has yet been made on Ihe northern side ofthe veied question in the ATHENS, T15NN., FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 1850. House ol Representatives; nnd there are those who still confidently assert that a ma jority ofthe House will reject any scheme of compromise founded on the propositions of Messrs. Clay nnd Dell and the views of Mr. Webster, But in regard to the Sen ate, there can he no doubt that some bill will before long he manned nnd passed. Mr. Foote was authorized hy a majority of the Senators in move, I his morning, a reference of the whole subject to a select committee of thirteen six from the North nnd six from the South and one to he hy them selected. Mr. Clay approves of this course nnd will vote for it. Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Baldwin, and probably Messrs. Hale and Seward, will oppose it. The plan has been adopt'ed on previous occa sions. Mr. Clay, at (he crisis of the Mis souri question, first proposed a committee of thirteen. We may expect lh.it the fires of bigotry '- nnd persecution will be kindled in the Kast, for Mr. Webster's giand auto defe. Tiie anti slavery men will never forgive his he- resv-that any public faith is to be kept with slaveholders. Thev alreadv represent him here as self sacrificed. The speech will become the subject of controversy in New F.ngland, am! I have little doubt my self, that it will lead men lo think who have never thought before, on this subject, and that Mr. Webster will be triumphantly sustained by Ihe gieai conservative mass of the eastern people.

Cm (Unit Pntn illus' ftSrThe world is full of peopls who ; can't imagine why they don't prosper like j their neighbors, when the real obstacles is ! not in banks nor LirifTs, in bad public poli- ' cv nor hard limes. but in their own exirav-l agance and heedless ostenta'ion. The young mechanic or clerk marries and lakes a house, which he proceeds to furnish twice as expensively ns he can afford, and then his wife, instead of taking hold lo help him enin a livelihood by doing her own work, must have a hired servant to help her spend his limited earnings.

I Had they from the first b en frank nnd i honest, he need not l ave been so unlucky. Through every crade of society this vice of inordinate expenditure insinuates itself.

The Fcwsr Side. How much more pleasant ii is to the pure heait to do good' to kindle (he more gentle nnd noble feel ings of our nature, than by misrepresenta tions, hints, or dark inuendoes, lo break in upon long established friendship, and dis turb the good feelin; of years of intimacy. In all our associations, commend us to bim who ever presents the sunny side of life's picture lo the gaze he who has always a "pleasant word lo speak," and H ever dis posed lo ding the mantle of oblivion over ihe foibles of erring mai, such a man we could wear in our heart's core aye, in our heart of heart's. But from the mischief maker, whose bosom is filled with a canker-worm which knows no pleasure except that which torments others, "good Lord deliver us!"

It wns the abode of poverty and wretch edness. On his death bed lay a man ol about thirty-five yenr. Around him stood a group of ragged children weeping over n dying father! nnd the pale and wasted form of his injured wife was bending over bim. With a patient nnd tireless love she watched his ghastly features, once so full of life and gladness! But nil hope was gont! Death was hovering over him; nnd lie would start back wnh horror!

Neill Campbell, Esq., living close by, was on the spot, shortly nfier it fell, and pronounced it as above. One of his children was about ;"U yards fruin the slmwer, and came running to the rest, saying he smell something like blood. During the time it was falling, there was a cloud over head, having a red appear ance like a wind cloud. Ttieie w,is no rain.

To the Kditnrt of the Journal: The sieam boat Orline St. John, Capt. T. Mea lier, left Mobile on Monday evening, (or Momgomery, and when about four miles above this place, was discovered lo be on fire on the larboard side, near the boilers. I was silling directly above it when it first made its appearance. We hnd just taken on hoard about fifty cords of pine Wool, and my opinion is thai in less than three minules Irom the time it was first' discov ered, Ihe cabin was an entire sheet of flame. There were about 120 souls on the boat nt the time, and I have not seen more than 50 persons since I came ashore. As soon as ihe fire was discovered, the pilot s:ecred her to the shore, which she reached before her wheel ropes burnt off. She ran ashore in a very dense cane break, bet bows on and her stern standing out in the river. Those who were on the front part of the boat pot ashore, who were but few the greater part of the passengers ran to the stern to get into the yawl, but the deck hands nnd firemen hnd taken possession of for help can never be erased fiom my me mory. If the yawl had been brought back they might all have been saved; but the deck hands who had taken it ran ashore in Ihe cane biake, and before the Captain and his brother, the first Mate, could return with ii to the burning wreck, they were all burned or drowned without an exception. The Captain did all he could lo rescue the passengers, and ha did succeed in taking those ofTwho were on the rudder. Those who were fortunate enough lo get ashore, were taken to the house of Mr. Mark Ii. Petti way, where every thing was done fur ihem that lay in his power. Several were sadly burned, but Dr. Caldwell, of Cam den, was among the passengers, and he did all in his power to alleviate their con dition, although he was severely injuredjby the fiie. The Captain had been pushing ilia bnal in order lo meet the cars at Montgomery on Wednesday. There were two Californa merchants who hnd just returned, having wild ihem nearly $50,000 in gold, which I think will be lost, as Jhe boat has this morning floated oil" in deep waternnd sunk. There was also iG.000 in California dusi in the sale, and I think ihe, actual loss is not far from 000,000. The Captain did all in his power, but no earthly power could have done anything under ihe circum stances. Had ihe cane brake taken fire, nil who had got ashore and in the brake would have been burned. I got considerably bruised internally, nnd one of my bands is slightly burned, but I am thankful that its nut worse. The safety valve ropes burnt oir, or in all probability the boilers would have hursted, ihe fire having melted the joints of the tleain pipes, and a gieat many persons supposing ihe boilers were burst ing, jumped into the river and were drowned. It never will be correctly ao ceriained bow many lives were lost, ns none of her honks were saved. But one thing is sur-', neither lady or child remains to tell the lale. There was a passenger on board who had a life preserver and could swim, hut refused to give it to a lady who asked it for her child. All Ihe ladies were willing lo sncriliee their own lives for ihe preservation of their children. c. w. s. ' Ton FaHni; r.v IIai.k.

Solidification (hat is, the f:onver sion of blood into the solid pnrts of the body jroes on during sleep. The chief end. indeed, and object, nnd in tenlion nf sleep would seem to be this finnl nssimufation of our foodthis solidification of thcr Mood into the several solid parts of the body. The accomplishment of this mirac ulous change seems to have required, that every thing, both within and without the body, should be hushed into profound repose during the no complishmcnt of the mighty wonder, in order tiiat nothing rnijiht disturb or intcrefcra with the exquisite nnd miraculous processes employed to effect it. To this end the portals of sensation arc closed the eye sees not the ear hears not the skin feefs not the very breathing is scarcely audible the pulsations of the heart are scarcely perceptible; all the living energies are now consecrated into the greatest possible intensity, like rays of light into a focus; and directed, with almost complete exclusivenoss, towards this simple object. In the day, therefore we make blood : in the night that blood is converted into solid matter. In tho day we garner up the building mate rials in tho night we repair up tho building. The hour of risinz there fore, ought to bo the time nt which our physical strength is nt the great est ami with perfectly healthy per sons this is the case. The langour which sickly persons feel in the morn' ing, arises from the process of repair not having been fully accomplished ; the building has not been repaired, and therefore its strength has not been restored. The apparent addit tional strength which is lei t during; the day, after ealing, is only apparent it is merely excitement derived from the slimulous of food; in the first instance in the stomach; and after that food has been assimilated, of new blood in the svstcm. FAItMKttS SIIOII.1) TAKE NeWSPA runs. A friend of ours, whose busi ness has occasioned him to trnvel a good deal recently in the counties west of this, expresses much nslonish tnent nt the fact that many, even rich farmers, do not take a newspaper. He told us of one or two instances of lh(? sale of hogs, of the finest and fat lost kind, at one nnd half cents per hundred null, when two cents might have been got just as readily, hud not the farmers been entirely ignorant of the slate of (he markets, lie said ha bail no doubt, and we have ns little, (hat hundreds of farmers will this season lose enough in this way to pay for a good newspaper as long as they live. Wc cant help feeling sorry that men arc so short-sighted, even in re gard to their pockets, as well as tho improvement of their minds; but wo ili n't know but it is wrong to be nor ry. for it is their own fault, and they hardly deserve pity for losses which they make noeli'ort to avert. News papers have done more fur the people f this country than can be estimated; and yet there arc thousands of full grown men who do not see them at all, except by chance. If a largo majority wore as indillt;rotit and stolid as these, wc should not be above the level of Mexicans and become sub ject to political and other rogues, who prey upon ignorance and credulity. .1 Ckrpymtn finind Guilty of the Miml'i f his Wif.
