Thh Bank of Tennessee. The
Nashville Banner says: We have ex
amined its late report with care. It
has made and paid over to the Treas
urer within the last two years a nett
prontoi 4iB,7UU 18 on an actual
capital of 82.389,052 54. This is
very large profit much larger than
is usually exhibited by banking insti
tutions in Tennessee, the exports r.nd
imports of which are not so favorable
to large banking profits as in the
commercial and manufacturing States
of the Union.
The suspended debt of the Bank or
debt in suit has been reduced, within
the two years, $94,628 75. The cash
on hnnd is $945,750 90 circulation
$1,757,103 00 not two to one to the
actual cash in the vaults. That is a
very favorable condition.
The Bank has furnished the very
large amount of $4,290,639 50 in ex
change to citizens within that time.
Explosion, attended with Loss
of Life. An accident occurred on
our Rail Road, on Friday night last,
which, we are sorry to say, caused
the death of three individuals in the
service of the Company. The new
locomotive James L. Petigru, to
which was attached the night train of
I reighl and I'assenger (Jars, in which
were several Passengers, left Ham
burg for this city on their way down.
When in the vicinity of While Ponds,
about 17 miles this side of Aiken, the
boiler of the locomotive exploded,
which caused the instantaneous death
of Mr. Philip Scholle, the Engineer,
and the two Firemen in attendance,
viz: Frederick Krusc and B. Brother.
The bodies of these unfortunate men
were thrown some distance from the
track, and were dreadfully mutilaled.
The (toiler head was found about 400
yards distant from the scene of dis
aster. San Francisco, Oct. 1, 1851.

Glass Facings fob Buildings. A
correspondent of the London Bu;lder
suggests the substitution of glass for
the stone facings of buildings; not
translucent or crystal glass, but glass
ground, of the requisite thickness and
strength. Such a material, he adds,
would not absorb the dust and smoke
constantly floating in the air; but
every shower would wash them oft,
and buildings would look as fresh and
new as ever. And as glass, from
recent improvements, can be moulded
to any shape, almost as perfectly as if
cut, the most exquisite Gothic and
other ornaments could be produced.

The principle of vitality is a most mys
terious thing, and often excites wonder by
the tenacity it evinces the obstinate hold it
has upon some bodies. A hen will hop
round for some lime after her head is cut
otT, and a turtle or a worm seldom dies in
a hurry. Eels are, perhaps, the most re
markable instances of this tenacity of the
vital principle, and we suppose all people
have heard of their squirming round in the

their great coats, cut up and boiled in veal.
The most surprising instance of eel-vitality
we have ever heard, was the case uf one

with lile was Ihe eel-skin, that it worked
the flail alone for several weeks, and the

temptations to which another may be ex

against ihe sin, and still kept the secret
locked in his bosom. At last he was over

give worlds to recall the act. He has
mourned over it in secret and repented in
dust and ashes. Shall we forsake him?
Earth and Heaven Justice, Humanity,
Philanthropy and Religion, cry out 'For
give him!' He who will not forgive must
possess Ihe heart of a demon. Surely the
love of God is not ia him.
