r<sy Morning, July I#, 1853.
While nothing U more common with person*
in oenrch of pleasure than to croea the Atlantic
for the purpose of indulging their taste for the
Itenatifuland the picturesque, among the high
lands of Scotland, on tbe shores of the Rhine.
«r amidst tbe mciuntsins of Switxerland, they
freqnently leave behind, unhonored, without
even a passing inspection, scenes which only
want the mellow tinge which history and ro
mance always cast around localities, to be re
garded as equal in interest to any that the
world can afford. Without going further for
examples than our present design may seem to
warrant, we will simply allude to the magnifi
cent scenery scattered with the wildest profu
sion, along that whole extent of country which
lie* between Long Island Sound and the river
St. Lawrence and the Lakes, including the
whole of Western New York, and the larger
portion of the New England States. Lofry
mountains, fertile vallies, superb bays, majestic
rivers, secondary streams of surpassing beau
ty, Erie, Niagai a, Ontario and the St. Law
rence—these are the natural features of the
land. To the man who takes an interest in
haman progress, are presented in the same
space, immense cities, thriving towns, flourish
ing villages, public works of the most gigantic
proportions, numberless railroads, vast canals,
huge aqueducts, fields teeming with the pro
ducts of husbandry, the whole owned or con
ducted by the most energetic, the most intelli
gent, and, because the most energetic and in
telligent, the most prosperous population un
der the sun. Every year is adding to the
ities for visiting these regions, portions o
which have heietofore been comparatively in
accessible to travellers. Railroads are traver
sing them in all directions, not marring the
beauties of Nature, but bringing the traveller
from a dis'ance to admire them. In future, it
will be a disgrace to the tourist from this coun
try to know more of the localities of France
and Switzerland, than he knows of his own
We make these remarks preparatory to in
troducing to the notice of our readers, many of
whom we should suppose, will profit by the
advantages which it offers, the "Great Northern
Railroad Route" from the city of New York to
the White Mountains. It will be interesting
to such persons to know that the New York
and New Haven Railroad Company have
formed a connection with the railways through
the valley of the Connecticut river, and the
main railways in Vermont, so as to secure to
travellers a thorough and unbroken transit,
from the city of New York to St. Johnsbury,
Ogdensburg and Montreal.
The White Mountains and Willoughhy
Lake are the objects of greatest interest to
travellers upon this route. Visitors to these
points, leave New York, by the Express train,
at 8 o'clock in the morning, and arriving the
same evening at Wells river or St. Johnsbury,
go by stage to the Lake or Mountains the next
morning ; or if they prefer it, they can take
the Express train at half past three in the eve
ning, and staying all night at Springfield or
Northampton, can go through the next day.—
Taking the Harlem Railroad, they pass the
Harlem river, and, at the distance of 15 miles
from the city, cross the Bronx, whose banks
have been rendered classical by the geuius of
Washington Irving. Here commences the
New York and New Haven Railroad, sixty
one miles in length, and one of the most impor
tant in the whole United States, being, in fact,
as it seems likely to remain, the only direct
land route between the city of New York and
the great valley of the Connecticut. It runs
nearly the whole way within a few miles of
Long Island Sound, frequently crossing arms
of it, at the mouths of its rivers. This railroad
passes through many scenes of romantic, and
some of classical interest. One of its stations
ia at New Rochelle, where Thomas Paine
lived several years, where he died, where
he was buried, and where his bones lay in
terred, until they were taken up (if we re
collect rightly) by Cobbett, and carried to Eng
land. A monument, erected to his memory,
bears the simple inscription, "Thomas Paine*
author of' Common Sense,' died June 8,1809."
At Greenwich the cars pass through Putnam's
Hill, or Put's Ridge,'so called from a daring
feat of the old revolutionary General, who
finding himself surrounded by the British
troops, escaped by riding headlong down a
long flight of stone steps which couaected (he
top of a very precipitous hill with the ground
at its base. At Souihport, another station,
and somewhat in rear of the town, is the fa
mous Pequot S#amp, where that once power
ful band of savages made their last stand
against the English in 1637. A tew miles fur
ther on is Fairfield, which our readers will re
collect, was burnt by the British Governor
Tryon, during the revolutionary war. Four
miles beyond Fairfield, and near Bridgeport, is
lranistun, iha oriental residence of the re
nowned Phineas T. Burnum. the exhibitor of
, Tom Thumb and Jenny Lind,himself a greater
curiosity than either. If the reader is fond of
inspecting colleges, which we confess we are
njt, he may gratify his taste at New Haven by
a thorough examination of Yale. The whole
of the country traversed by this railroad, is va
riegated by landscapes of surpassing beauty.
The traveller now enters upon the New Ha
ven, and .Springfield Railroad, and
begins his 'new route by passing under nine
bridges which carry the streets of the city over
*the track. There are many objects of interest
along tbki line, as there are also along the line
of the Connecticut river, the Vermont and Mas
sachusetts, the Sullivan, the Vermont Central,
and the Connecticut and Passumpsic, the last
of which brings us to St. Johnsburv, three hun
dred and twenty two miles from New York.
From St. Jobnsbury to Wilioughby Lake,
the distance is only twenty miles. This is
■aid to be one of the most attractive localities
in New Euglaiid. The Lake, scarcely less
lovely than Geneva or Como, is situated be
tween two mountains, which rise abruptly, one
lo the height of 2000, and the other to the

Northwest, Lake Merophremsgog;Oi»r» H«nd
and the pliin of Stanttead, r*achi»f Ur into
Canada, on the Bant the entire range of the
White Mountains, and on the South and Weat
the valley of the Psssumpsic, and the Green
Mountain range. The lake abounda with fi«h,
particularly the musciluog, a species of largo
trout, while the numerous streams snd ponds
in the vicinity are filled with the common
mountain trout. Upon the lake, midway the
mountains, the reverfeeiation of sound is magi
cal ; as many as six distinct echoes being re
turned from a bugle played at the same point."
The White Mountains are themselves the
traveller's "ultima Thule." They are the lof
tiest in the United States except the Rocky
Mountains. Mount Washington, the highest,
is 6243 feet above the level of the sea, and it is
surrounded by Mounts Adams, Jefferson, Mad
ison, Monroe, Franklin an.) Pleasant, severally

But we have already extended these remarks
further than we intended. We will, therefore,
conclude for (lie present, by saying that this
line presents temptations to the tourist, which
cannot be surpassed on the continent.
The reader will find a sketch of a speech de
livered a short time ago by the ex-senator
from Missouri, who is now a candidate for Con
gress. It is characteristic—highly so—aa all
his speeches are, and, of course, amusing. It
was during the Presidency of John Quincy
Adams, we think, that he brought forward the
plan for amending the Constitution, of which
he speaks. Like all others,ol a similar charac
ter, it failed; for our legislators have always
evinced a laudable caution in making any in
novation upon the erganic law. Yet it has
struck us that the proposition of Benton was
founded in reason, for we see no reason why
the awkward and troublesome machinery ol
electors should be interposed between the peo
ple and the man of their choice. If the Presi
dent and Vice President were voted for direct
ly by the people, we see not how it would ren
der liberty less secure, nor can we discover
why any difference should have been made
between the method of electing them, and that
of choosing Representatives in Congress.—
Perhaps the motives which induced the friends
of the Constitution to establish the present
system, may be explained in the Madison pa
pers ; but we have them not at hand, and
cannot, therefore, undertake to say whether or
not such he the fact. In the meantime, we can
very readiiy imagine inconveniences which
might arise under the present system, while
we can conceive of none likely to result from a
direct vote of the people.
There seems to us to be a great deul of souud
sense in the ex-Senator's opinion of the present
mode of selecting candidates fur the highest of
fices in the country. It has struck us, for a
long time, as highly improper, and well caN
culated to impair the vigor of the Constitution,
in one of its material points. It little else,
indeed, but an attempt to get around a difficul
ty presented by that instrument, without di
rectly violating it, in letter or spirit. If there
be no election by the people, the Constitution
carries the contest before Congress, and that
body is bound to decide it. The object of
these National Conventions seems to be, not
only to dragoon every man of a particular par
ty into voting for the candidates who may be
set up by the majority of such Convention, but
to obviate the possibiiity of the election's ever
coming into the House. There can be no
question that the freedom of opinion and ac
tion, so essential to a Republican form of Gov
ernment, is seriously impaired by this method
of proceeding. Of the hundreds of thousands,
for instance, who are expected to cast their
votes for one or the other of the two candi
dates now before the nation, how large is the
proportion of persons who would greatly pre
fer some other person ?
Give us, we say, back again ; the old-fash
ioned mode of election. If the people cannot
settle the matter, take it to the House, where
the Constitution has settled that it shall be ta-
I ken.
We hear very cheering accounts from the
Huguenot. The company is quite as large
as the proprietor expected it would be. and
promises to be still larger. Our informant says
that everything is most agreeable there; fresh
country air and agreeable company render a
sojourn delicious. Our friend McEvoy, is in
full blast, teaching the rising generation the
mysteries of Polkas, waltzes, and a whole
broadside full of new pax, fresh from Paris
whence he has, himself, just returned. The
Saturday evening balls, afford great enjoyment
to the worshippers of Terpsichore. U e ad
vise all our friends who can escape for a day,
to betake themselves forthwith to the Hugue
not, and wash down some of the city dust with
its health-imparting waters.
A great Railroad meeting was held at
Anderson C. H., S. C., oa Thursday week.—
Among the resolutions adopted, one provided
for a committee to memorialize the legislature
for a charter incorporating the Blue Ridge
Railroad, from Anderson C. 11., and by the
Rabun Gap, another for a committee to prepare
an address to the States interested.
IdP* On Monday week, a gentleman named
Bourne, of Grayson county, while passing
from the Grayson Springs to nis home, was
way laid by three men in disguise, and twice
fired upon. The first ball passed through his
coat and the second through his vest, in front,
without doing further damage. The ruffians
then made off. It is supposed that robbery
was their ol.ject, and that they mistook their
tS* During the national salute on the sth,
tt Castle Pinekney, near Charleston, one ol
the men, James Murphy, was immediately
killed by the premature discharge of a 24 poun
der, and Michael Shanaghy so seriously in
jured that he is not expected to recover.

the 2d Presbyterian church in Lynchburg, has

rous warmth which prompts to worthy deeds—one
towards whom, especially, our hearts are drawn in
grateful praiie.
CoL Ellis responded to this sentiment in the most
feeling and eloquent manner. In concluding his
remarks, the Colonel asked pardon for carrying his
audito'S out of the military and taking them upon
the water line, and gave the following toast:

his country calls, "The field of combat is the ephere

To this toast Col. Talbot very gracefully respond
ed. He gave:
The Richmond Fayette Artillery, in connection
with the Artillery service at large: The truest, mo«t
formidable and most reliable arm of the service.
Shelton C. Davis, Esq , then answered the pres
sing toast of Captain Nitnrno in a few pertinent re
marks and gave:
The Richmond Fayette Artillery: With alacrity
they respond to tiie calls of duty and patriotism.—
They deserve the praise of every patriotic tongue.
By Capt Nitomo: Our friend, Walker ilaxall—
A guest who never approached our lestive board
without bringing pleasure to every heart at it.
Mr. Haxall answered the call in a few earnest re
marks and propfsed :
The States: Revolving in their appropriate
spheres, nuy they continue united to the last sylla
ble of recorded time.
After some pertinent remarks from Mr. John
Nimmo, which he closed by toasting General Scott,
letters were read f om several invited guests, en
closing some excellent sentiments. We cull from
the numerous volunteer toasts that closed the fes
tive celebration of the Artillery, the following:
By Lieut Hawlings : Col John Ruthsrfood—A
hospitable;, upright, useful citizen—enjoying. as he
deserves, "the purest treasure mortal times afford—
a spotless reputation "

Compsny receive him gladly on bis return from
the south. They know him to partake of that
spirit wnich is better than wall, or parspet, or
ditch, in the defence ot honor and rigi.t.
Assistant Engineer Tally, after briefly returning
thanks for the welcome extended to him, said it
was his business' to work in the hardest, most com
mon, and most useful of all articles—iron ; but he
did not know that he could find, even in the beet
"works," whether lor military or civil purposes,
sterner stuff thau was to be found among the mem
bers of that corps. He had discovered, also, that
that they possessed another property of iron—that
of magnetism: they were not only capable of being
attiacted by, but of imparting the attraction of, pa
triotism and public spirit; and the quaiity thus
communicated, like that to the true needle, was
suie to take the true direction between the North
ana the Sovth. He gave ;
The 4th Regiment of Artillery—They submit on
ly to the command of duty.
By Lieu'. Shine: Assistant Surgeon Carter—A
worthy member of a profession whose privilege it
is. to realize in a greater degree than perhaps any
other, that gratitude which the deaf and dumb girl
defined to be "Memory of the heart."
Asst. Surgeon Carter said he had visited, in his
time, a good many patients—but he did not re
member ever to have ie!t the pulse of any whose
patriotic system was in a more wholesome condi
tion than those before him. He therefore took
particular pleasure in proposing, as h toast:
Our Country—Shame ! Shame! that such a
country—-he praise and glory of the whole earth —

enthusiastic meeting of the Democratic Association
of the city of Richmond waa held in the African
Church, last evening. At in If pa.t 8 o'clock Dr.
Wm. A. Patterson. President, and John A. Lynch,
Secretary of tbe Association, took the platform.—
After a few appropriate remark, from the Presi
dent, Mr. R. G Scott, Jr., presented resolutions per
taining to a thorough organization of the Associa
tion, which were adopted unanimously. We have
been obliged tc omit them to-day. A large number
of iadie. here arrived and took possession of the
iront seats, irradiating the entire meeting with the
refulgent light of their beauty.
R. G. Scott, Esq., then moved the appointment of
a committee of three to wait upon Senator Doug
las, then in Richmond, and invite him to address
the meeting. The committee, composed of Messrs.
Scott, Butler and Haskins, then retired and soon
returned with tbe Hon Mr. Douglas, whose appear
ance was greeted with loud cheera. Mr. D. after
being appropriately introduced to the Association,
addressed the members at length in behalf of the
Democratic nominees and principles. Our report
er was compelled to leave ere the conclusion of
hie address.

the custody of the civil authorities of Boston, after
due examination, on Saturday last.
Handsomely Done—The Richmond Light Dra
goons, came in from, Manchester on the 4th, in a
cloud "f dust, the "effect of which marred all the
refreshment derived from the good cheer they
had been enjoying with their Chestsrfield brethren

was struck with compassion, when he saw their
plight. He invited them to dismount, and carrying
them in, bade them call for every thing they wish
ed. They were not slow in "obeying orders," so we
hear. Very neat; wasn't it?

Johrson, of Manchester, has been charging a gen
tleman named Wm. H. Cook, formerly in his em
ploy, with stealing a pistol, some money, a watch
and book 6 and papers, from him (Johnson) and has

|y Our Plan Is This:— Not to resort to
humoug, and advertise improvements in the Da*
guerreotype Art ttat do not exist, for the
purpose of attracting persons to our rooms, but to
make known our location, and invite citizens and
strangers to an examination of our specimens and
a trial of our skill, and then if we do not render
satisfaction, we in no case expect :hem to take a
picture. Our own opinion, and the opinion ot
thousands who have patronized us for the last four
years in Petersburg and this i ity, is that the Da
guerreotypes taken by us are surpass* d by noae
and equalled by few this sidf the Potomac.

[jlp We continue the insertion of the testimo
nials of the fine Daguerreotypes issued from Pratt'
Gallery, at No 145 Main street, under the Goihic
windows. The Magnolia says of it:—"We were
quite astonished at the beautiful manner in which
it is fitted up, the richness of all its appointments,
and the elegant appliances of comfort and luxury
with which it abounds. We looked over a large
number ol the distinguished men of Virginia, and
well known private citizens, and did not see one
inferior likeness amongst them. Mr P. is a master
of his profession, and such seems to be the general
opinion, if we judge from the army of witnesses of
his skill which look down from the walls." "The
best fineness I have ever had taken," says Dr
R R Welllord, of Fredericksburg, Va, President
of Medical Convention je 23
How many expressions of commendation
I ever hear in my saloon. " Why, he takes them
every time.'' "How beautiful that is.'' "That's
you, Kate." " I never saw any thing more per
fect." "Oh I why, how he does take them.'' '• I
like his style, his positions." " Oh, the dear little
thing ; why, he took it laughing, at the first time."
And many more of the same sort. Those who
want a beautiful, durable and lifelike Portrait at
