Uf" It would afford us a grent deal of pleasure to be able to answer the interrogn. torie of our friend in BledsoJ county, but we are not able to do so nt this lime. All we citn say i, that we think it too early to commence agitating the subject, by two or three months. The Democratic State Con- venlion to nominate a candidate lor Governor,- will meet nt Nashville on the 8th of next month. In our opinion, three months there after will be sufficiently soon.for.Jliu Ameri can party to bring their candidate into the Geld. Sf" Some of the West Tennessee papers and our Knoxviile cotcTnpornrics have men tioned the name of Judge Alexander, of Knoxviile, in connection with the nomina tion for Governor, "i'liliti Judge Alexander no man in the State is more deservedly popu . Inr, and no one stands higher for iiitt-grty and all that goes to mako it bun; but we doubt whether he would . resign the position he nt present so ably ttnd satisfactorily fills, and to which he was elected without opposi. Hon, to taken race for Governor, even were the contest involved in less doubt than the next one in Tennessee is likely to bo. Wo regard the Judge as. on ornament to the Ju diciary and as entitled to higher honors than he now enjoys, and we should regroto see him loaving the Bench to mingle in po litical strife, where it too often happens that wortlij Integrity and eminent ability are over come and defeated by the mere demagogue and'superior party tactics. At the same time we will remark, that thero is no office in the State for which we would not cheerfully support Judge Alexander, in the event of his becoming a candidate. HP" If we did not know the magnanimity of our coti'tnporary of iho Atlanta Intelli gencer, wo should feel a little- nervous about that proposition tendered last week in regard y to the Bank of- East Tennessee. The last advices from Knoxviile are not very flatter ing, and indicate that the institution is about to "go under" sure enough nt least for the , present. We learn that the banks ami busi ness men generally, and the railroad, all re fuse itn issues sinco Monday, and that the Bank, like the Georgia Wild t Vis, will be compelled to suspend until it can "rally its resources." Of course, its promises to "pay the bearer on demand lit Knoxviile, Jones born,' or Chattanooga," are no b nger current at our counter at leant until further, advised- Piano Fortes.

During the Presidential can vass Mr. Buchanan wrote a letter to the De mocratic Slate Central Committee of Cali fornia, in which ha signified' his approval of Ihtr proposition to bsairf the Pacific Railroad by aid of the General Government. It was, of course, a bid for the vote of California, and did not, as was designed, find its wny into the prints East of the Rocky Mountains until after Un! election. Its appearance, since that event, has been received by a majority of the democratic press South with ominous silence, while a few of them have spoken of it iu marked terms of condemnation. Among the last is the Republican, a leading democratic paper of Wtsteru Virginia, published at Wyth'evfile. That sheet, .after alluding to the general silence with which the extraordi nary document had been received by its dem ocratic cutemporaiies, sas: "But w hilst w e are thm far from question, ing the propriety .f tin- policy, which, in this mailer, our cotompnraries have so generally observed, we do not feel at liberty, however, to participate in their conrs.-. The motives to which we have credited it, do not, we con fess, address themselves to our minds with the same, or, at any rate, with sufficient force. We choose rather to follow the ex ample, he it belter or not, of the Alexandria Sentinel. Obeying the dictates of no other policy than thai of impulse, we avail oursel ves of the earliest opportunity to condemn this remnant of Federalism, canonized though it be to whatever other eyes in the person of the distinguished statesman w hom the Democracy has elected President of the United States. Tim teller Hi wiik-ii iWae, we will not say revealed for the fact, we take it, was nowhere upp' sed . to be other- wise but so prematurely avowei., ought never to have been written. In the name of the Southern Democracy, to which mainly he owes his election and must look ltr his support, we Imsitale not to 'take issue with Mr. Buchanan and with his administration, so far as it mav be expected to t ke its tone from this letter, upon every position assumed in it, miH in so doing, doubt not that we but speak the sentiments universally animating the Democracy ot tins, Ilia banner district ot tho banner State of the Union." Irish Catholics is Diiovks. The New York Express gives us the following upon C.tholic movements on election days: "In one of onrcitv journals an attempt is made by some Roman .Catholic to apologise for the Catholic liish going to the polls in droves, alul voting in droves. The reason is not veiy cl.-ar, hill llie substance Isjllial Irish Catholic sympathies are democratic; and that tho democracy in lluir hearts carries away their heads and votes 'gl'his would do, perhaps, ns an explana tion, if thero were no other democrats in the country than Irish Cathol cs, wlio don't go in droves. The American democrats occa sionally split and divide, and change points; and we see now in this State, this election, the heaviest democratic counties iroing the strongest for Fremont in lieu of Buchanan. In this city, on the Mayoralily, "tho Demo cracy" split up the largest portion of the 'American born democracy politically going for Lihby, or against Wood, but the Irish Catholic Drove, in mass, under somebody's direction, went for Wood, though sod took 'all the horrid Know Nothing ontlu'ip the American Council to which ho belonged, and from which he only deserted because the Americans would not nominate him for May or in 1854. "Now. there are Germans, and French, and Italians among us, as well as liish (Vtholics, but they are not moved in droves.

If 90 flash Catholics are on one side, and 10 would be on nnolher, somebody causes the 10 to be pommelled or thiltelahed, till, in af fright, they become subject and obey. The terrorism over the drove is frightful, nnd Irishmen are often actually beaten to the polls to vote against their w ills. "It is'u great public calamity, then, when n whole nation, or that portion of them which is under the Romish Hierarchy, can be driven thus in masses, by thousands and tens of thousands. Who is the drover? We cannot sav; but who or what the druies are, everybody can see on election day. CosonEss.

THE REASON WHY. The Lynchburg Virgiuian says, Mr. Bu chanan's late Pacific Railroad manifesto lias cast a spell upon the Democracy more potent than any of the supernatural agencies em ployed in Arabian fable. The unterrified are horror stricken und duuib before llie monster prnjet "evoked from the inky casket of the magician of Wheatland. Self constituted teachers of the federal prerogative, they stand aghast amid the ruins of their most dearly cherished principles. One after ano ther of these principles have crumbled into dust. Souatter sovereignty, onenlv avowed . - - o - - by Cass and endorsed by Buchanan, goes un reproved; the non-extenaion of Slavery, pro mulgated by Ml. Breckenridge, is received with meek submission; internal improve ments, passed by a Democratic Congress over the veto of the heroic Pierce, excites scarce a murmur; and now the gigantic swindle of the Pacific Railroad, ns Democratic moralists have denounced it, is swullutfed in ili nee. How is this? Where are the thunderbolts that annihilated Jefferson Davis when he first proposed this scheme? WJicro are the "gal lont few" in Virginia, who put tl e administra tion to ignouiiiiuus route in "53? Where is the Codes of the Examiner, the Spurius Lartius of the Enquirer, the Herminius of the Sauthside Democrat, who stood forth so nobly to defend "strict construction" in the brave days of old? Where are these heroes, now that the citadel of Democracy is so griovously assailed? Echo answers "Where?" Alas! the enemy is no longer without but within the gates, und neither Ramsician nor Titian blood avails tb circumvent him. Fili busters of South Carolina' and Free Kansas Democrats of Pennsylvania aro equally mute witnesses of his paricidal act. Must we, therefore, conclude of railroads, ns of murders, that the crime is in inverse proportion to their magnitude? Yet ...the Pa cific Railroad of Mr. Buchanan contemplates an outlay quite ns enormous as did that of Secretary Davis,nnd the opening forpecu lation is the same. Are Democratic ptinciples self adjusting, and do they adapt themselves to the wildest vagaries of the Presidential in cumbent? Is the theory of '56 radically dif ferent from the theory of '53, nnd are we to have new democratic theory with every new alumnae? In fine, what are wo to make of the silence of our democratic brethren in Virginia, und how account for it? The task is by no' means difficult, 'i'ie .. i .i ! -i i mi I tpous nave not oeen aiviaea. l lie Hungry ex pectants dare not open their mouths until the division has taken place.

Then we shall have patriotism.boldness, independence, pure democracy, in the largest abundance. Such a howl will b raised ns never has been heard sinco Satan encountered the hell hounds nt the infernal mite. Such a howl! Meantime where , will pure democ racy have drifted? Mail Bag Missinq Sospicioi-s Circumstances We find the following in the Atlanta In telligencer of the 8d': "We learn that Borne two or three weeks ago a brass lock mail bag started from Knoxviile to . Naehvillo, Tenn., failed to reach its destination. It was either last or stolen, but no clue as to its fate could be found until a few days ago. A man named William Smilh, formerly "drummer" nt Loyd's Hotel, in this city, but who has for some time past been employed ns Mail Guard ,on the Western it Atlantic Rail Road, was known to have a good deal of money was handling and spending much larger sums of cash than appeared consistent for one in his station of life. The circumstance was brought to the attention of the officers of the Road, and one night last week, Col. R. J. Cowart called up on the young man at his lodgings, and suc ceeded in obtaining from him J 9 50 in bills on Tennessee banks, which ho Bnid he had found in a purse or pocket book on the cars about a month ago, and was keeping it to see if any one claimed it. As the mails between Knox viile and Nashville pass from Pal Ion to Chat tanooga over the State Road, it is reasonable to suppose that this Smith knows the fate of the missing brass lock bag. "Col. Barclay Martin, from Tennessee, Spe cial Agent of the Post Office Department, nr rived here on Sunday morning last, for tho purpose of investigating the mnttcr, but we understand Smith is missing.

POLITICAL FLUNKEY ISM DIARY OF AN OFFICE SEEKER. From ll.e Baltimore Patriot, Sot. 18. A President elect, w ith u hundred thousand offices in his gilt, is a geiuleiiiuii crow ned with every good quality; but a President de faclo, with llie offices distributed, suddenly loses Ins attractiveness in the eyes of neglected aspi rants, who brgijgfor the first lime, to discov c r that the knot of the , IWidcntiul w fiite neckcloth will twist around ominously under his left ear; that there is something peculiarly sinister in the east of his cyo of which they were previously unconscious; and that tho political idol whose praises they hare chanted asjl whose battles they have fought is so vifry ill put together ns to be easily shivered into fragments under the blows of inimical Iconoclasts. But the diary of nn admiring office-seeker, in the first flush of ambitious expectation, presents a very dilrent picture from what is subsequently drawn by the same person when he finds his claims upon the government aro not likely to be recognised. 1a1 us open a leaf or to, and reproduce what wc find written there: EN IIOUTK.

TaRJBTaaua.Bajcyr-afcjg-it.i-Ji i ia American Principles. Although the fiiends of Filhuore and Donelson, says the Louisville Journal, hare been unsuccessful in the recent campaign, they have no reason to I.e discouraged. Their candidates have re ceived the votes of 9 JJ.OJO of tiioir fellow citizens, and their defeat is not a condemna tion of their principles, but a triumph of chi canery ami fraud, aided by the needless ag itation of the slavery question. Tho princi ples of the American party are as true und as patriotic now as ever, mid their establish mentis as essential to the maintenance of the Union and the preservation of American institutions at the present mofnent as they were laot year, or the year before last. The result of the recent Presidential election, the means- by which it was accomplished, the alarming condition of public uffiiirs, tho fierce assaults upon the Union nnd the Fed eral Constitution from the South find from the Nort, and the great doubt that exists as lo the policy which may be adopted by the incoming Administration, whether for good or i'or evil to the country, should impress the people with still stronger conviction than be fore of the necessity for tho establishment of the principles advocated by tho American patty. "'rtio Washington correspondent of" the N. Y. Herald, under dato of Nov.. 21st, writes: Gov. Wise left hero to day for Richmond. Ho arrived last evening from Lancaster, where he had been staying a few days. It upppears he is not altogether pleased with his interview' with Mr. Buchanan; for a fiiend informed mu that he came back with a fl:j in his ear. A gentleman who called upon him says ho was Very cross, nnd manifested n good deal of uneasiness. Ho (Wise) says that Mr. Buchanan will not arrange his Cab inet for two mouths yet, and that Mr. Buch hanaitold him he had not even thought about it. Our Position. Thu position of the Fill more parly is easily defined and as easily defended. The conservative American par. ly saw, that, Ly running Mr. Fillmore, they might elect him, nnd, that they would nt the very last secure the defeat of. Mr. Fremont, tho Northern sectional candidate. They nobly labored for the highest good, the election of Fillmore, knowing that, even though they should unfortunately fail in-this, they would accomplish an important good, the overthrow of the mischievous free soil p.'.riy. They deserve a largo share of the gratitude of the country fur what they have effected, and they would haA'e had n right to demand a far greater share of it if they had effected all for which they honestly strug gled. "The Foreign Vote. The result of tho election in those places which we havo heard from show one gratifying fact, and that is that thj great body of adopted citizens were true to the groat principles of freedom. In this country Erie Mihvaukie Chicago, etc., the great body of the intelligent adopt ed citizens voted for Fremont und Freedom; and we have no doubt now that the great warfare has commenced between tho exten sion of slavery nnd its limitation, that those foreigners who left Europe to escape tyran ny and come to make a homo where they nnd their children can enjoy the blessings of liberty, will hereafter always be found as they have been nt this election, on the sido of Liberty nnd Freedom." Wo clip the above from tho "Crawford Journal," n Fremont paper published lit Meadville, Penn. Iu that county we think the Democracy must have been out of funds and credit, or the Free Boilers could not have out-bid them. Tho extract needs no com ment; it will bo sufficiently intelligible to the Southern reader. New Orleans, Nov. 'J9. Tho Empire City has arrived nt New Orleans, from Puna ma, w ith dates from California to the 5lh of November. Tho election returns for President, in Cali fornia, are very incomplete. At San Francisco it was believed that the Slate had gone for Buchanan. In tho city and county of San Francisco tho vote was, foi Buchanan, 10,900 Fillmore, 7,000 Fremont, COO Reports from the interior, or upland conn. lie-, are, that Buchanan leads Fillmore. It is regarded premature to predict, with iinyH thing approaching certainty, what tho result will be, with such meagre reports. Good order prevailed in San Francisco at the election. jyyTho southern part of fliinoia, says tho Louisville Journal, whero Democracy thrives best, seems to have been completely inundated w ith "black carpet bag men." The returns show tnnjorilies for Buchanan in several instances, greater than tho entire Voting population. In the ninth district it appears that gross frauds have been perpetrii" ted upon the ballot boxes. In counties which in 1854 gave each an entire vote of not more than 400; there aro Buchanan majorities of double that number. r 1 "Do von Own Tint PatNTKR."

Adams, of South Carolina, in favor of the increase of thu salary of the Cover- nor ot the btate, arguments bich apply ns well to some otiier States us to South Caro lina. For our own part we have alwavs con sidered that the salaries of the Chief Execu tive Officer of most of the States are inade quate nnd disproportion to the require ments and responsibilities of the statiou. Gov. Adam says: "As-my term of office is about to expire, I feel no delicacy in making certain recom mendations in relation-to iho department. Tho salary ot the Governor is w hoily inade quate to iho maintenance of the' proper re spectability and dignity of llio station. I have avoided ail unnecessary expense; I made no display whatever, and from mv rxperi rien.ee, I have no hesitation in saying, that no man can dispense the old nary hospitalities expected ot him, nor maintain that sty'e w hich our people' very properly associate with the station, without drawing largely on his private income. The lirst office in tho gift of the people should Hot be one w hieh the wealthy can only nt.'oril lo accept. It is no answer to say, there is no want of aspirants for the position'. WidiiiL' public servants aro not generally the most efficient. The repub lican standard of compensation for all public service, is that which wiH'command talent that is to serve the commonwealth.
