THE NEW TOWN OF LOUDOX. Tho lots at this new business point are to be so'd, according to the advertisement lo he found in another column. We nro pleased with the name of LnrnoN. A fort by this name wns built in 107 by Governor DoMis, of North Carolina, about one mile above the mouth of Tellieo river, on the North side of the Tennessee, designrd as a place of refuge for tho Cherokee squaw and children when the warriors should be absent nrainst the French, ond hostile tribes of Indians. A garrison was placed there, and soon the number of persons ot thai point was increased lo two or three hun dred, by emigrants. The Cherokee proved faithless, and in ITfiO lliey besieged the fort for mnny days, and finally the garrison ca pitulated. The terms were an abandonment of the country and a stile retreat to the Illue Rii.'ie or beyond. The artillery and much of the store9, were thrown into the river, and llipy proceeded unmolested lo Koly Harlin's reservation, about 20 miles liiatnnt, when the savages surrounded and insscred the whole company, except three ir four, who were saved upon ihe interces inn of the chief. This event struck terror in'n the frontier, and ccrlainlj had a great effect in delaying the settlement of the country immediately north of Tennessee. It has almost faded from the minds of the present generation, and we deem it highly appropriate lo nsber this new town into ex istence under a name so noted in the early history of the country.

Editor: intended latt week lo drop you a few lines on ihe subject of elec ling United States Senators, but unavoida ble circumstances prevented. Our Memo cratis Iriends intended lo elect two Sena tors, in ihe event that they carried the Legislature, consequently, I hope they will not complain if we eieriise the same pri vilege. Thomas A. R. Nelson seems, by almost universal consent, lo be the F.at Tennes see candidate lor Senator. Fur mv own part, I care not a straw whether the Sena tor lives in the East or West, so he is "hon est, capable and faith'ol to the Constitu tion " If it is conceded that East Tennes see shall have a Senator, Nelson is the man. Prominent amongst all othpr candidates thai have been mentioned for Senator. lands thp name of one of Tennessee's silted and favoiite sons ont thai she has ever delighted lo honor one that never faltered in the discharge of any duty as signed him and one that" never surren dert" and "never lost a battle!" Who could not guess 'hat I reler to the great champion and defender of Whiggery in Tcnnessee-saiiat pure patriot, distinguish ed statesman, and unrivalled cralor James C. Jones, of Memphis? His political career has been B short hut brilliant one. He was elecied to ihe Le gislature in '39. He was plnced on the Hsrrisnn Electoral Ticket in MO. In Ml and M3, he was elected Governor by large and triumphant majorities signally de feating the boasted champion of Democra ey James K. Polk! In MS, he took Hip field, almost at a moment's warning, as State Elector for Gen. Taylor meeting, defeating and putting to flight that slippe ry and artful demagogue A. V. Brown! Gov. Jones is well and favorably known throughout the United Slates, he having spoken in all the principal cities of the U- nion. And in all his eforis, both al home and abroad, his warmest and most partial Iriends have been agreeably disappointed, he having far surpassed their most san guine anticipations! Bell and Foster have been amply paid for all their services to the Whig party. Jones and Nelson are the men that have "worked for nothing and found thtmtelvet!" If two Senators are elected, I am confident that Jones and Nelson will give satisfac tion to a large majority of the whigs of the State. If but one ia elected, Nelson can well afford to wnit, as his serviefs have been mostly confined to Esst Tennessee, whilst Jones has three limes canvassed ihe State from Johnson to Shelby. Hence, I conclude by declaring myself ror"eH Jimmy," ' first, last, and all the time." A Whig op Polk. Oct. 20th, 1851. Charleston, S. C. Oct. 18. Returns from most of the State show that the Disunionists have met with a niosi siganl discomfiture. The co-operaitonists have carried the State probably by six or seven thousand majority. Rhett and Dun can are the only secessionists elecied. I Will. We like that strong robust ei- prpssion. No one having uttered il in sin eerily, was ever a mean crying man. The pigmies ol the world did not trouble him, although they rose in masses lo pull him down. He speaks and ihe indomitable will prevails. His enemies fall belore him. He rides forth a conqueror. Would you be great? Would you he distinguished for your scentific or literary attainments? Look not mournfully at your lot, but with I will' breathing Irom vour Itps.ane burst- ins from a ureal heart vou cannot but pre. vail.

The total amount of property invested in Ihe whaling business in the United States, is said lo be between twenty and thirty millions of dollars. The first seven months of this vear there has been landed about 82,800,000 worth of sperm oil. 84.500,000 worth of whale oil, and 81.200.000 worth of hone making a total of 88,500,000 for the first seven months, giving for this year nearly $15,000,000. The Memphis Enquirer, noticing the dismissal of theAtneiican Consul at Ha vana, by the President, says, "that is just what we expected Millard Fillmoie to do, if one half thai Owen was charged with should prove true. He has done it in tht right time and in the right way. There has been no demagoguisin about it no hasty action in order to jump with Ihe po pular leeling of the hour; but a calm, so her. infi"xible discharge of duty. Since Washington there has been no man in ihe Presidential chair whose official career as Chief Magistrate ought to have command ed more of the respect and confidence of every patriot than has been that of Mr. Fillmore. With high courage, a pure in telligence, and a firmness almost unequal led he has discharged his official duties strictly and literally like an honest man. The people will not discard so good a Pre sident to trv any new man. Tennessee is for him, heart and soul. Daniel Wedster The New York Cou rier and Enquirer ha published a lengthy article in favor of nominating Daniel Web sterfor Presjdpnt. The feoling Among the masppa.

So true it is, lhat "extremes meet," and ihe end and aim of all uttraism is disunion. A Rhett lie in Mississippi, and a Sewardite in Cal ifornia, Mr. Tomkins is a signal illustra tion of the charge, that if the extremists of the South sod those of the Nonh were lo succeed in their designs, they could hear tily strike haode over a lorn and trampled Constitution and about 'Victory!' together. over the very ruins ol the Republic.

The In dianapolis Journal says, the Whigs did not mskn any provision for calling the next, nor do we km whose province it is to fix upon the lime and place of holding it. We suppose, however, that the wishes of the Whig party, a exprpspd through the ac tion "of Conventions ' ond by the Press, ought to have some influpnp in determin ing il. The Whig of Ohio and Indiana, through Stale Conven'inns. have recom mended Cincinnati as the proper place, and next June as the proper lime. We think the recomnipndation a judicious and proper one, and hope that it may be enneu'red in by the Whigs throughout the whole coun try. Cincinnati can be a easily rea-rhpd from all pari of the Union, as any othpr point in i'j and it is time that our Eastern brethren should come and see and bt come acquainted with the West. France.

Defalcation Having heard in the street some rumor of a defalcation by the Tellpr in Ihe Back of Tennessee, says the Nashville Banner, we have made enquiry into the matter, and learn Ihe facts to be, that in ihe quarterly examination at Ihe Bank on the 1st of October, the cash ac count of Mr. Reid, the Teller was found lo be short between teven and eigM thou sand dollars, and that upon further investi gation, sundry errors or omissions of entry were discovered, by winch Ihe amount will be run up toome tweWe or fifteen thou sand dollars. The Bank will sustain no loss his seem rities being amply able to repay large'y more than the amount. He has conveyed to his securities his whole properly, indem nifying them as far as it will go. We have learned these facts with deep regrel. Though Mr. Reid differs with us in politics, we have felt for him much per sonal respect; we sympathize with his large aid helpless faintly, and he having been Teller of the Bnk from its com mencement, and enjoyed high reputation as a business man, we cannot but regrel that he should, at an advanced period ol life, become so seriously involved.

I al lude lo Ihe co finemenl nf thai most stmngeand unhappy man, Dr. Hawk, in our common jail.

In admitting this, as we all must, we as plainly admit lhat our cotrKe, up to this lime, has been improper, inasmuch as its direct and inevitable tendency is towards results just the opposite of these.
