Of course, Mr. Bilbo doea not fall within thia category.

Wa regret to see the press of Esst Tennessee falling Into a hnbif fcf " puffing" the. Honorable Judgea of oar Courts. Wa presume It grows oat of the proverbial diapoaition of edltore to be complimentary, but the practice ia nna aeatingly ridicaleua, and must appear so to the complimented parties. It is legitimate to notice a big ox or a mammoth Jack; to ac knowledge the receipt of large vegetables cabbage-heads, for Instance lo herald, in extravagant terms, the wonderful efficacy of a patent aeelrum, and to write a glowing eu logy on the blood and pcrformancea of a ata-ble-horae all these are legitimate, and pro per aubjecta for the pen of journalista who have a talent and a taste for that branch of the vrraatile vocation. But for the prcaa in each Circuit, or Division, to announce, term after term, that "Judge So-and-So haa been holding Conrt here thia week, and discharg. ing his duty with dignity and despatch," (n though it was aomething rare for a Judge to do that aame) and that "he'e a fust rata Judge and a d d good feller.' we respect fully aubmit that thia ia crowding the busi ness a little too close into the neighborhood of the ludicrous, and ia below the quintea aence of doable distilled nonaenae. There are occaaionaand emergencies when It ia right and proper for the press lo speak in com mendatory, and even grateful term of the men to whom is confided the high end ancrrd duly of administering the laws. But there is a wide difference between that snd the practice we are speaking of. If the latter is continued, after a while the "puff will be expected and looked for, and if by accident, or aome other cause, it should fail to appear at the arcuatomid time, the outside public will begin to think there is aomething wrong and that "Hia Honor" I falling below the estimate previously fixed by the greasy echo of popular caprice. The Judgea of our Courts are alj high-toned gentlemen, and we are certain they have no taste for being "puff ed" after the manner. Indicated, any more than they would have for a aatira upon a just and eonaoieotious diacharee of their duties.

While tha big American heartthrobs with pity snd companion over the want and dea- Utaliaw or the "hunger mob" in New York, ws cannot but state the fact, that that mob is composed; of the foreign hordes Invited hers by ths Democratic policy of onr coun try. The New York Journal of Commerce, In speaking of the "broad or blood" demon stration, eaye: , It la a fact, alreadv sufficiently Droved. that not one out of ten of thoae which hsve called loudest for work would accept It, when offered, at reaa than the usual com penlion of flush time; while many able bodied American mechanic hove eagerly embraced such opportunities to relieve their pressing neceoeitiee.

We think this Is strong Democratic testi mony In favor of the American party, to which we add the testimony of another Dem ocratic paper, the Waehlngton Star, in favor of the law-abiding disposition, tha energy and independence of the native-born citixen, and agalnat the Red Republican "role or ruin" radicalism of the foreign population. It says: "The unemployed are holding open-air meetings, demsndinir what they eall their right.

THEY TALK IN THEIR FIERCE APPEALS OK "GOVERNING CLASSES" IN THIS COUNTRY, WHICH PROVES THAT THEY ARB PERSONS WHOLLY INCA PAULE OF APPRECIATING THE THE ORY AND PRACTICE OF OUR GOV ERNMENT THAT THEY ARE AMONG US BUT NOT OF US." ' The Louisville Journal truthfully remarks: "Notwithstanding all the disguating lauda tions of foreigniam and the fool denuncia tions of Americanism with which the eolumna of the Democratic newapapere throughout the country have been filled for the laat three years, tha fact is forcing itself upon the attention of the people everywhere that the mosses of our foreign population are "wholly incapable of appreciating the theory and prac tice of oar Government" and totally unfit to be entrusted with its direction and control. This is ths origin, the prime cause of the organization of the American party, and the Star haa unwittingly admitted the propriety and the necessity for its organization. It ia a aingular declaration to come from an or gan of a party that systematically exalts for eigniam above Americanism, aud ia battling la favor of alien suffrage. Lxoislativb.

Here they eaw a targe quantity of provision stored, a venetderable number of Indian ensamped all around the fort, and heard the people generally speaking of making prepa ration to go out and meet General Harney. At Fort Brldcer, he waa told by a merchant inaiai roit BudpIV over 400 Indiana were Ind encamped, awaiting orders to attack the United Slates troops. About thirty miles from Fort Bridgsr he mat three eompanie of men, generally monnted and all well armed, having abundance of baggage, their wagons being numbered in messes. Mr. Homes says hs slso here had a conversation with one of the Mormon otdiers, an Englishman, who ramping with the company, grew very com municative over the camp fire. The sub stance of this conversation, Mr. Homes re ports as follow: lie relered in bitter term to the treatment the Mormons had received In Illinois and Miaaourl, reflected on the unjustneaa and tyranny of the peopl of the United State, ana saia inni in nine was come 10 gei even. He said they war on their way to meet Gen eral Harney, to ses whnthe wa coming for; 11 he was coming peaceably, we will lot him come, but if not, we will drive him back," were the words need. Another Mormon, amed Killion who lives about seven miles from Bnlt Laks t'lly. spoke. bitterly ngainst the United States, denounced Judge Drum mnml and all th federal officers and re j "iced that the time' had come when ths Sainta would bo avenged, on their enemies that men were fauna Cnn could fare the enrmv. and that Harney', with his ?,S00 men, never wnuin enit-r Ban mk i-ny. tie niso ataieo that Governor Brigham Young had ordered the people to prepare for war, that thvy should not aril emigranta anything, that they muat lay np ptnvisiona; that the men and wo men muat not dress up in atore cloth anv more, but that all muat be saved to forwaid the cause of the Church against the common enemy that the men must be content with buckskin instead of broadcloth, and have plenty of guns and ammunition. Un the I7tn Auguai. Mr. Homes passed through the City of Suit Lake. Remained only three or four hours. Had a conversn tion with a merchant a Gentile, who staled that on the previous Sunday Brigham Young had declared, in the temple that henceforth Utah was a separate and independent Terri tory, and owed no obedience to any form of laws but those of their own enactment and called upon the people to eland together and support him In maintaining the cause or uod and the Church. Waa told that the house of Gilbert & Garrison had orders from Brig ham to pack up and leave before the 1st of November. During all the residue of his journev the trsin of Mr. Homes was harassed bv the Indiana. Thev hired aeveral Mormon guide or "interpreter" aa protection againat the snv. ages, and for this purpose expended 81,815 bnt round thst the wretches were acting the truitor's part snd seemed inclined rather to setting the Indians on to attack, than to protecting them.

While near ths Muddy, the Indians made another attack upon Mr. Hornea's train, and run off 375 head of cattle. Goverhor Walker ard Senator Doua- las. It ia said that Gov. Walker had an in terview with Senator Douglas while on his way from Knnsss to Washington. Previous to that Interview he had not fully made np hia mind what course to take in regard to the Icompton Constitution. Hi decided course now, and hi hostile attitude toward the Ad ministration, are supposed to be ths fruits of Ihe putting of their two heads together. Senator Douglas has gone on to Washing. ton to assist in carrying out their plans for Ihe annoyance of Mr. Buchanan. The Chica go Journal says he left there on Wednesday night, "full of wrath nnd fury at the course of the Administration, nnd with nn openly avowed purpose Co oppose the doctrines enunciated by the Washington Union to the bitter end." t3T A San Francisco paper says that for the lost four years a secret agent of the Fed. ernl government haa reaided there, whose duty it haa been to look into the subordinate appointments in the different United States public departments on the coast. He could reduce the number of appointments, examine into the character of the appointed, and pre vent the aipecurca; lie had a controlling power over all the public officea of all the United Slntee employees on the Pacific coast. He had the right at all limes, without previ ous notice, to demand an examination of the booke nnd treasure of the Branch Mint; could count the funds in the hnnds of the United States Sub-Treasurer, and Treasurer of the Branch Mint, and Collector of the Port. Merchant! of Greenflon' and Foreign and Suspended Bank Billt'l'he Montgomery Advertiser, of 1st Inst., say: "At a meeting of the merchants of Greensboro, (Ala.) ths Iherday, a resolution was adopted, declaring that after the-first of December the bills of banks of othe State, nnd of the auaponded bunks of Alubams, will be taken by them in payment of debts only at the ratet of discount current tn Mobile.

The editor of the Yszoo (Miss.) Banner gives that oity a bad eharaoter. In his "leader of Friday week, he ys ; Th river is low here, and the state of Grace in the Churches is still lower. Like Benin- mln F. Butler, of Handy Hill, th Christian in Yazoo City is compelled to mourn the low slate of Grace. A pious divine of the M. K.

There have been a good many caving in since then, and we think it is a little nearer now. In deed, a nervous man ean smell brimstone on a clear day, if he bas not a oad cold.

The New York Express says the "Workingmen's movement," which la the hap of fvwe asaieaairaliane threat ened to be to formidable not long ainoe, now that there ia no more "backing up the Mayor" to be done, ha subsided into an old fashioned Communist project, confined to sixty or aev enty discontented individuals, who organised themselves into a Club on Wednesday after noon. They call themselves tha General Workingmen's Association, and have adopted a "platform" demanding all sorts ef impos sible things, free houses, fres law, rres breed, snd eauslitv of master and man. It it the old Jseobin story of "down with ths rioh " The masses have deserted the leaden, who ia due time will desert tbeir "platform" for som other equally preposterous.

In closing Its noties ot ths Lecture and ths Subject, ths Virginian remarks that "Mr. Prentics Is not ths first to discover that ths tendency of men and things In American politics Is decidedly downward. There are few who can aay now aa Pericles of Aid- biadea, that 'his eountry was first and self fterwarda,' but, as Mr. P. has It, 'teU first, and after that nothing.' Without con troversy, much of. the evil of the times aa In dicated in the prevalence of aectionallsm, anarchy and aocial disorder ia attributable to tha degeneracy of modern politician, and th rampant apirit of demagogoeiem by whlen they are Influenced. An unchecked Demo cracy, under the epeciou gull of devotion to liberty, and the righta of the people, haa been more effective in promoting that impa tience of lawful and aalutary restraints which mark the character of onr countrymen, than any and all other causes combined. When, and where it will end, th Supreme Ruler of the universe alone csn tell, but It becomes na tn look the danger In the face, and seek by some means to get back to( the hluh ground once occupied by onr fathers.

' Thb Nicaragua Treaty ard Gerf.ral Walker. According to the Washington correspondent of the Richmoi d Enquirer, the late Nicaragua treaty, will enure to the benefit of General Walker, eliould he rgain hia former power in that country. By it, our government obligates itaelf to keep the transit route open, and consequently they are bound to prevent Walker's enemiea from closing it, should they attempt their former tactics againat him. - The treaty doea not provide for the arrest of Walker and his re turn to the United States, ss some of Ihe pa pers hsve stated, nor does it seem at all to prejudice hia movements, aa have been etated. In fact, we do not see that the Admininlra lion hu taken any step, really Inconsistent with the best wishes for Ihe success of the fillibusters. The Richmond Enquirer says: "We need not expect to extend the institution of slavery where nature does not direct it. Self-interest ever has been, ia now, and will aiwaya be the great motor of mankind, at leaat in all such enterprises as the establish ment of socinl institution. And unlets ne gro labor is better adapted to Ihe culture of certain soil than white labor, it is idle to expect that slavery will be adopted in con sideration of its advantages morally and po litically. Even the enlightened people of this country are not educated to that point of the philosophy of government yet. The South must look southward for the expan sion of her institutions." 1 he Terressee Railroads Patino or Prohttlt. The Memphis Appeal learr.s from As Railroad Commissioner of this State, R. G.

Some of them nre now ready to meet thia obligation, and he entertains, no doubt, from recent information, that th others will also be in a state of readiness to pay up when the interest falls due.

A Vigilance Com mittee is being formed throughout the Ter ritory. A letter to the Democrat, dated Lawrence, Nov. 17, states that Governor Walker said he would cull a special session of the Legisla ture, provided the meinbera would atgn a pledge guaranteeing that they would Dot go into general legislation. A Prediction. Forney's Press, nor an; other press, aay the Chicago Times, ever uttered words more pointed, truthful and emphatic, than the fallowing: "The public mnn who falters in this Issue. seals his doom.

Patiro Orr in Silver. Yesterdav the employeea of the Government were paid their month s wages and aalarles in half dollars This is the first time, we apprehend, when such a thing has been done. The result was, that ths brokers immediately nut on a con siderable rale of premium when called on to exchange gold lor silver. The effect of thus paying off the public employees must be greatly to increase the quantity of specie cir culating in business here, for silver to-day on the street Is not worth snything more than the currency of ths banks of Ihe District of Columbia.
