We regret to hear of the demiae of James Smith, Circuit Court Clerk of folk county. He died st his residence in Renton few deyt since, lie was an etlicient officer en honest and good man. We are afraid the correspondent who sends us the short soaount of the Cleveland Fair is disposed to indoles in a little irony.

Most of those who nro selling out and forsnking their "old homesteads," are what ore called "good livers" "people well to do In the world." But they go in search of richer lands and more of them. I .el us hope that they may find these, and, ulsn, an nluionphere as pure and healthy as that which pervadei the hills nnd valleys they nro lenving behind them. ATTEMtT AT UlOIIWAT RoilUERT.

We lesrn that this honorable body ie ra pid'y- bringing its labors to a close for tbe present term. A gentleman in alteadanea riles us that several questions of great in terest have been adjudged, and others are yet under their consideration. They have decTJed that any foreigner who has become fully naturalised voder the lawe nf the Uni ted Stales, must remain a resident of the county, after bis naturalization, for the space of six months next preceding Ihe election, before he is.authoiixrd to vote. It is a well known provisioa of law that natural born citizens removing from one county to ano- , j. .1 -..,1.. ther, are required to remain there e.x months before they can vote. When a foreigner has become a citizen he is now required to con. tinue his residence in the county for the same length of time, snd then he can vote, snd not until then. Thus the practice of manufacturing voters in Tennessee on the eve of an lection, ia deemed to be illegal; and an additional and much needed safegusrd is thrown around the ballot box. The opinion of the Court, we learn, was well considered and unanimous. Vote-makers, vote-buyers, and those w ho have fattened upon the cor ruptions of the bllot-box, may object to this decision; but Certainly it wilt be hailed as a just exposition of Ihe rights of the real peo ple by all who love their country more titan mere party. We are also informed that the Court re. fused to issue a scire facias against the Bank of East Tennessee, The charter of that in stitution provides that when the Legislature shall be of opinion that this Dank had vio lated its charter, and shall express that opin. ion by joint resolution, directing proceedings, that the Attorney General may then make application to the Supreme Court, who shall issue scire facias requiring the Rank to ap pear and show cause why the charter should not be declared forfeited. It is further pro vided that the questions of fact shall be tried by a jury. The Court, in construing the Constitution in reference to their organiza tion and powers, declared that the Supreme Court of this Stale has no original jurisdic tion, nnd cannot issue process by which a suit ia to be instituted and conducted before it, either by jury trial or otherwise; that it ouly has power to review, correct, and en force the judgments and decrees of inferior Courts, brought beforo it by appeal and upon writs of error. This provision of the char ier of the Hank wss therefore unconstitu tional. The Dank is, consequently, exempt ed from this statutory mode of proceeding; but it is still liablo to sll the common law remedies, which sre abundant and unembar rassed, and are being prosecuted in the Courts, by parties interested, at tho present time.

They siy two-thirds of every Congress is taken up in discussing the question, "What shall we do with the nig. ger?" and it ia about time "nigger should ax himself dat question" specially as Congress does not seem likely to solve it Duration or Human Lire A writer in "Life Illustrated" is proving that "human beings never did and never could live 1000 por even 900 years," and "that ths longest known human life (supposing the antedilu vian years to have been wasont, or quarter years) did not reach 250 years; and no life since the period of Abraham has sxceeded 206 years," Consequently the alleged ages of Methusslah and those other "old boya" who lived before ths flood, are wrong. f-There is a love lorn youth at Chatta nooga addressing lines to "Lizzie" through the columns of one of the papera of that oity.

The New York Herald has aa artic's opon the attitude of certain Southern prints snd politicians, that is worthy of attention, per haps, sa evidencing that ths "I-itlW Giant," whether successful or defeated in Illinois, is to be taken back into the Regular Fold snd, it may be, mads the candidate of the Party in I860: The Illinois Contest Mr. IhitgUts, the Sinukern Fire-Eaters and the Vresidenhal Succession. There is something very extra ordinary snd very significant in the sympa thy which now prevails so extensively among ths Southern lire-enters in behalf of Mr. Senator Douglas at this important crisis to rnmssii anu ine minoia urniocracv. i ne Rieh d Enquirer, the central org.n r 1! tr , .i : - A . lior.rnor wise, lias irum ine brginomg 01 Ihe Lrcomiiton rupture sustained ths rebel lious Senatr; but has surprised nobody, in asmuch as Governor Wise, from Ihe outket boldly aud without reserve has occupied t!is same position as Senator Douglas. But when we find the late intrncnble and bel ligerent organ of the Snulhern snti-Dong-las lcompton fire-eaters, the Richmond South, and many of Ihe leading uruclea nnd organs of thai faction, from Virginia to Mis sisnippi, among the warmeat iu their expres sion of sympathy for Ihe cauae of'llie Little Giant," there is evidently a new movement afoot looking beyond the exigencies ot tiie preseut day and the existing administra tion. - To the Southern fire-eater, w ho preaches Ihe protection of slavery as the lest question of democracy, and the extension ot slavery as the paramount duty of the government, one would not suppone that tiiere could be anything particularly attractive in the present platform of the Illinois Senator. The fire eater slicks to tle population restriction of the English Kansas bill; Mr. Douglas boldly repudiates it, and holds that when a territory has population enough for a slave State, it has sutlicietil population for a free State. The fire-eater contends that under the Dred Scott decision, the local authorities of a Ter ritory cnniiol interfere to exclude or discour age the institution of slavery, but lire bound to protect it; while Mr. Douglas maintains that the Dred Scott decision is a mere ab straction, and that "the people of a Territory can, by lawful means, exclude slavery before the Territory comes in as s State." How is it then, that we find such fire, eating organs as the Richmond Soulh and New Oileans Delta, and such fire-eating leaders asTooiiilm, Stephens aud Senator Brown, no fer vently desiring the success of Doiiglus, and so earnestly hoping that he " may thrash the abolitionist Bob Lincoln out of his boots!" We answer that the steady conservative general policy of Mr. Buchanan's udiniuistra lion, and particularly the practical settlement of the Kausas imbroglio, has left nol'iing upon the books for sectional agitation noth ing upon which the Southern lire-eatern can rnise a profitable nigger excitement. Their lent experiment was upon the question of the African slave trade; hut here, n single letter from the Secretary of the Treasury, reciting the existing laws of Congress, nnd the duties of the Government in the premises, put an end lo the humbug. These Southern agita tors, therefore, are dropping tin no worn-out searocrowe of accession, disunion, nnd a Southern confederacy in behalf of Southern rights nnd Southern niggera, and lire canting about them in reference to the practical is sues of the next Presidential election. Mr. Buchanan is not, nnd will not be, a candidate (or the succeasion; and, starting from this point Ihe support of his adminis tration becomes s secondary question, and ths control of the Charleston Convention ihe paramount issue with all the aspirants 0 the party for power nnd plunder. In this view, us Ihe Southern fire-eiitem, without re morse, cast overboard DoiiL'his and Pierce in 185fi, nnd brought forward Mr. Buchanan, because he alone was their available man, so we apprehend their present svnipathy lor Douglaahus reference to 11 Northern footing in I Sou, without which the Umrleaton nom inations must fall to the (.'round. The de mocracy, it is presumed, have the Southern States, with one or two exceptions, secure against all contingencies; bill, with the with drawal of Mr. Buchanan from the field, Penn aylvania will almost certainly he reconquered by the opposition, and in this coMiuncncy the South cannot afford to lone the vote of Illinois and the Douglas faction of the other Western and Northern States. Herein, we apprehend, lies tho secret of this newborn sympathy of the Southern ul Iras for Douglas and his cause in Illinois. I he issue between In in and the admnnstfa tion they regnrd as a trilling iillair, and the administration Hsell as but a temporary in stitution whicli must be tolerated, but which it is not necessary to recognise ns tho law of Ihe pnrly when expediency may point in an other direction. Granted that Mr. Douglas " ill bo d"feated in Illinois, the result of the election will doubtless show that the reitora tion of (lie Stale lo the democracy will de pend upon his full restoration to the party camp. Let this be done, and from the pres ent manifestations of Southern leaders and organs, we may conclude that Mr. Douglas will be restored into line na prominent, if not the most conspicuous, democratic candidate for the succession. These views, we apprehend, cover the cal culations of the Southern Douglas tire-eaters in relerence lo I860. 1 hose ultras hare dis covered at length that their disunion nnd se cession hobbies will no longer serve (heir purpose that without a Northern balance of power they can no more elect a rresident in ISfiO than could have done it in 186(1. And thus, findiiii' the key to nil Ihe ramifie iliona of this sympathy for Douglas, open and dis guised, North nnd South, we can only await lor more deliiute developments from Ihe Don- eral results of our October nnd Novembor Northern elections. f-jr Mr. Morsn, President of the Erie Railroad, receives a salary of $25,000 per an num.

HfTha Winchester "Homo Journal" calls babies "pestiferous little things, nnd nearly always making a noise."

With all due respect for the profession to hich Spurgeon belongs, s beg lesve lo remnrk that the msn ho teaches such no tions of hesven as ths above, is not only an ass, but a blasphemer.

This Reverend Spurgeon has uttered more coarse and brutal things in the pulpit than all the declsiuiere of his class thai hsve preceded him. Judging from the ex tracts we see published, he never enters the sacred desk without Indulging remarks thai are but mockery before the throne he as sumes to sddress: and it is he, and such ss he, that render the pulpit so inefficient in in culcating true, Mvint piety, and in sJatnlug the thoughtless from the error of their ways nnd from the piths which lead through briars and thorns down lo the grave. Cou Titus Heard Fro. The State Ar gus, Columbia, Missouri, gives the following: "A friend, writing to the editor nf this ps per, from Fort Chadbournr, Texas, under date of August I, speaking of Col. Titus, among other things, Bays: 'Col. Titus snd his party arrived here yesterday, and are stop ping here today. They are on their way lo Sonora, with the intention of conquering that country and establishing a government of their own there. The Colonel said in my presence, that he vntrhl farm a eorernwent there that it iroulJ he an honor to U long to. He has about twenty men there now, but has n party that will join him in Sonora from San Francisco. Col. Titus is a splen did looking man, quite large and well propor tioned. From hi conversation I should pre sume he whs a man of much more bravery than discretion." One would suppose that Col. Titus or any other filibustering land pirate, "would form n government that it would be an honor lo belong lo." In plain English they are land pirates, and it is time the papers should cease giving their movements notoriety, ex cept lo apeak of them as they would of any other marauding and plundering expedition, Roiidino Till TreasurT.

De Santy says the cable has not parted. Ws suppose- not: hut ns its tenuity increases Ihe power of the sleelrtc current is abttorf. Eighteen hundred rnilea of the cable weigh at least six thousand tons, and tho gradual subsidence of this enormous weight amongst the mites of little shells, on s line of sixteen hundred miles, has produced grent exility, and will finally be the cauae ol rupture.
