I. A. GRA FRIDAY, OCTOBER S3, 1857. Office; OTf r Wm II. Bryarly's Store. ' ITAIl communications milt be addressed to th Editor. Business letter to the publishers. tTAdvertleemcnts matt bo handed la the day before publication, or they will Wo lei over. t6T Gmmunuationt mutt be handed in by on Tkmmluy, or Ary wK be left over. U5y Read the correspondence between Buchanan and Douglas and learn, if you don't already know It, that flie Govern ment of the U. States Lai become a mere amortioner of the spoils - sewarder of partisans. It used te be- disgraceful in an individual to mate office th considera tion for his sup-pert of measures; but sovreign State sow bow at the foot stool of federal power and Jitimbly petition for a share of toe plunder 'as the reward cf their devotion to party. Consolidation must follow this fawning of tbje States npoa the federal Executive. . . K5T Tho conMaaajity was justly surpris ed at the stupoasie of the Bank of Ten ncssee, las week, because that institution took occasion to apprise the public that, having the means to redeem its issues, it woold not be forced to suspend. Not only did it make this boast, but, by implication, would have cast discredit upon banks that aro entirely solvent, and have held out after the suspension of that boasting in stitution which volunteered the dectara tion that it would never do that which it was the first to do. 1 he boast was ex cessively foolish, and the covert stroke at other banks, was as ungenerous as it was unjust t&'tn commending the bill of Mr. Maney, last week, we thought as we ia tended -that our commendation embraced the amendment to the bill, providing that State aid should be extended to all the companies that have gone earnestly to work under the Internal Improvement law. "Without this proviso, the bill would work great injustice to companies that have ex pended much money in the effort to make such progress as would make clear their claim to State aid. But where no work baa been done, the ease is different; and a due regard to the credit of the State, de mands that its credit shall be no further pressed than it is already, by the actual and proximate compliance with the con ditions of the Internal Improvement Bill. The people of Tennessee have voted against the distribution of the proceeds of the publio lands, and having no hope cf aid from this sourco an aid extended to new free States, Tennessee must be prudent in the management of its resources; and we fear that much which ought to be done, must be loft undone. Sfy It seems that the Americans, of Ohio, aro helping the democrats to beat Chase, and some are disposed to commend them for it. For our own part, we con sider the democrats a more dangerous par ty to the South than the Black Republi cans. The latter show their hand, and proclaim thoir object ; but tho former do tho work of freesoilors under the false guise of friends to the South. A pretended friend is more to be feared than an avow ed enemy. This is the difference between those two parties, and, as an American, we would not cast tho bnllanoe in favor of either. If the Union is to te sundered, it had better be done before the strength of the South is frittered away by tho spoils loving democracy. Every year, some additional right is surrendered, or com promised. t3J Some of the Eastern papors give gloomy accounts of tho prospects of tho laboring classes, thousands upon thousands of whom are out of employment. Yet these same victims of loeofoco policy still cry out "reduco tho tariff, and encourago tho importation of more foreign laborers" to reduco tho wages, and take the bread out of tho mouths of native citizons. If thoy suffer, thoy deserve thoir fate. The pliant tools of demagogues, they spurn those who would protect their interests, and elevate to power tho greedy spoils seekers, who pay for their ulevution with unmeaning compliments, to tho dear peo ple whom, in truth, they contemn as empty headed fools. The roduetion of tho tariff closes our work-shops, and the advent of every foreign laborer swells competition and reduces wages; yet the dear people advocate both, and reap poverty as their reward. vT Tho Supremo Court of the N. Y. City District, has decided that suspension is no proof of insolvency, and that, so far, the proceedings of the city Ranks are not within the inhibitions of the Constitution. 'J'liw dc" i.,inu has bad a cluviiii'.; effect up on liu incs aud inspired coiitideiRO in an t'.n'v tIki" iVfin t'larrasMiK'Ut. the currency: Ther is something wrong In any' sys tem which makes the interests of the gov eminent distinct from those of the people, and in a government claiming to be demo cratic, such distinction is peculiarly odious. The subtreasury is a case in point, being a financial system which establishes a cur rency for the government purely motalic, whilst the people - are compelled to use a paper currency liable to continual fluctu ations and possessing a value more local than general, and often subjecting the whole commerce of the country to heavy losses. Not only does the system work injuriously, by requiring the government debtor to pay in a currency not demanded in the business transactions between man and man, but by -withdrawing from com; merce an immense amount of specie that ought to go to giving value to the paper currency of the States. . Under the operation of the U. S. Bank, the government had no use for specie no distinction was made between the govern ment and the people all the dues to the former were paid in the currency used by the latter, and the specie, instead of being hoarded, was diffused through the country, giving security to, and equalizing the val ue of, the paper currency, without which the commerce of the country can not flourish. At this moment when the banks are suspending, the government is buying up its own paper at an enormous premi um, in order to throw back' its hoarded specie into the channel of trade to relieve the monetary pressue it has helped to bring about. This fact itself proves the error of the subtreasury policy, and conveys an idea of its tendency to centralise power in the federal government. It is a U. Bank with all. the objectionable features of its predecessor, but without one of its redeeming traits. ' ' ' Gen. Jackson, in bis intense American ism, discovered tnat tno U. . Uanfc was dangerous institution, because foreigner held stock in the same, and through the agency of that stock might subvert the liberties of the people. "That can no Ion gcr be an objection, with the democrats, to its re-establishment, and we do hope they will seriously take the subject into eonsid eration, and give to the country an insti tution that ean regulate the currency and equalize exchange. Tho experience of 1837, and the present crisis prove the ne cessity for such an institution; and if Congress have power to establish a govern ment Bank under the title of Subtreasu ry, it ean establish a Bank with a different name and with widoly different influences upon the commercial prosperity of the Union. . JQT Why is it that we hear no loeofoco boasting, at this time, of the unrivalled prosperity of the country, under the domination of that party? Are they be coming modest, or are they ashamed of a policy that has induced the present state of things? It will not do for them to try to shirk the responsibility of our troubles. They have long ruled the federal and State governments, and have been warned, unceasingly, of the consequences of their misrule. But the only answer has been "look at the glorious prosperity of the country, and infer from it the wisdom of loeofoco policy." Well, that polioy has not been changed, then whence the mone tary wreck of to-day ? We ask the people, who arm the demagogue with power to strike down their prosperity, to look at this question, and, if they dare, to answer it as honest freemen. We ask them to look back upon all the periods of distress that have come upon the country, since the organization of the spoils-party, and say whether they have not all been the legitimate result of its misdeeds. That policy must be wrong which leads to evil, and that party is a curse, which adheres to suoh a policy. Let the people look the question in tho face. They are the source of power; if that power work mis chiof, they are the guilty parties. If they are too corrupt to do right, or too ignorant to know the right, they had better resign their power and fall back upon a monarchy, which is preferable to anarchy. And that they are too corrupt, or too ignorant to take care of themselves, is but too mani fest. ftST We are authorised to state that the Stockholders of Linwood Landing have been duly incorporated regularly char tered by the Legislature; and at a meet ing iu Garrettsburg, Ky., on the the 15th, inst., tho following were elected a Board of Directors: D. W. Quarlcs, Wm. L. Moore, J. D. Kendrick, A. D. Flotchcf and II. G. Green. We are further requested to say that an energetic and efficient busiuess man will take charge of tho Warehouse, and that planters may rest assured their business will be promptly and faithfully attendod to. IiV Godcy's Lady's Rook, for Novem ber, abounds in beauty aud taste. Its Front ice piece "Tho Governess," is a liighfy finished engraving, and all the em bellishments are in keeping with it. Take it ull in u'l, it is hard to beat. , t6V There bat been another election riot in Baltimore, and much bloodshed. The names of the arrested parties have a foreign sound, but, of course, Americans are to blame, xne poor aaaves must learn to submit to insult from the pam pered and petted foreigner, and not even dare to raise his arm in self-defence, when assailed by those who may woll boast of 'a foreign birth. To be born upon American soil i getting to be grave misfortune. ISTThe work of dismissing laborers and reducing wages is progressing at a fearful rate, and it may be that Buchanan will see the accomplishment of his wish, that the price of labor shall be reduced to the European standard. If so, the silly laborers who ' voted for him, should not grumbfs at ten cents a day. " Masonic Grand Lodgi. The forty fifth annual session of Grand Lodge of Tennessee. F. and A.

We copy the follow ing from the Cincinnati Price Current: Tha feeling in the market for bogs for November delivery continues very unset tled, there being lew buyers at any price, and several sellers. Some contracts have been made within the last two weeks at $6 cwt net, November delivery, but we be lieve there are no buyers at this price now. The unsettled state and great uncertainty aa regards the futureof financial matters, deters the packers from making any eon- tracts, and leada to a disposition on their part to hold off for the purpose of being able to witness nnembarrassed the result of this financial crisis. The corn crop is now matured and may be considered the best in quality, and the largest in quantity ever raised in the country, by, say twenty five per cent., and the indications are quite conclusive that it will rule at extraordina ry low prices, thus rendering the feeding of it to hogs, even though they should rule at f t 50$ cwt. net, the most profitable dis position which can be made of it, and this must lead to a large supply of pork. IIioh Frici fob Negroes. We have often hoard, says the Enlaw (Ala.) Whig that a thing waa worth its weight in silver, but did not think we would ever sea a ne gro sell for such a price. A few days sinee a gentleman of this place paid f 1,200 apiece for five negro girls, from twelve to fifteen years of age. Reckoning silver at twelve ounces to the pound, which is Troy weight, the negroes, allowinc them one hundred pounda weight eaon, cost joat their weight in silver. UNDERGROUND RAILROADS RE- ; TURN TRAINS.. , ... - It seems that the return trains of the Underground Railroad are doing quite a heavy business at the present time. .The Cleveland plindcaler states that every steamboat arriving at that place brings! back from Canada families of negroes, who heretofore fled to the Provinces from the States, ' They are, It is said, principally from Canada West ; and they describe the life and condition of the blacks in Canada as miserable In the extreme. Upon these facts, the Journal of Commerce has the following remarks : . H . The West is therefore likely to have large accessions to its colored population, and It is not at all improbable that Black Republicanism and Abolitionism will di minish, in consequence, in proportion as the negroes increase. The Canada folks do not want them, and have shown a dis position ia their Parliament, and other wise, .to discourage their coming to or re maining in the Provinces. Ia some in stances the question of ejecting those new resident there has been discussed. Oar Western States will be likely to experience a similar attack of the llack vomito, whoa they shall hare become satisfied with this peculiar 8outhera luxury. In some lo calities the superabundant free negro pop ulation has already beoome a burden, while in others they are under severe restrictions which amount almost to an exclusion from the limits of the 8tate. - - ' Should this exodus from Canada con tinue to any great extent, it would throw such a burden upon those States which hare adopted the most liberal polioy to ward the negro, that it would occasion a reaction in the publio sentiment which would compel them to abandon their abo lition doctrine and practice, for their own self-protection, We should then hear of fewer attempts to abduot slaves from the slaveholding States; stock In the under ground railroad woald become .worthless, and Abolitionists would be content to al low slaves to remain ander tho care and protection of their masters. Even though at heart sympathising with the oppressed and task-worn negro,' and yearning to wards him with all the love of the pro fessed philanthropist, he would still be permitted to toil and bleed ; for now that the route to Canada has been closed, there is no alternative bat to take them to their own bosoms ; and this they will not do for love no, not for money I Thus, in one way at least, the country may, and possibly will, bo rid of the po litical plague-spot which has disgraced it, and preyed upon its vitals for so long a timo. The disease- is one of that kind which, in time, will cure itself." New Orleans, Oct. 21. The Cahawba has arrived with Havbna dates of the 18th, and over half a million iu specie. Health (rood; business more oetive; Sugar declined; Stock 180,000. A slaver was captured off the Coast with 540 negroes. We call the attention of our readers in general and of the aJHited in particular, to the advertisement of Bragg & Bu'rrowes, in another eolumn. The Arctic Liniment, prepared by Da. Bragg, is recommended as the best article of the kind in the world, and we believe is destined to supersede all similar preparations. It has but recently been introduced to the public, but has long been successfully used in private practice, and was throughly tested and approved by the late Dr. Kane, on the Grinnell Arctic Expedition. Dr. Bracki has for years enjoyed a well earned and widely extended reputation for his medical preparations, which is a sufficient guaranty of the value of the article now advertised. ARRIVAL OF TnE NORTHERN LIGHT New York, Oct 16. The Northern Light has arrived with (1,660,000 in gold. The specie list of the Central America shows a much larger a mount than was anticipated. The official result of the State election has been de clared in most of the counties. The total vote polled is some 15.000 less than at the preceding election. The returns show a majority for Weller, the Democratic can didate for Governor, over both Bowie, the Amerloan, and Stanley, the Republican oandidate, of 11, 000. The Republican vote leads the Ameri can by a bout 1,000. .The Legislature is overwhelmingly Dem ocratic. The people have resolved to pay the Bute debt ty a majority oi XD,UUU, against repudiation. The proposition for calling a convention for revising the constitution did not pre vail. A majority of the votes cast at tho election required to carry it, but so great was the indifference upon the subject that only a minority voted upon the question. The mining operations are earried on throughout the fcuto as vigorously as ev. er. Various Burning companies on the riv ers are getting fairly to work, and many of these enterprises were resulting suc cessfully. Tha crops throughout the State have crenerally arrived in excellent eondition. Emigrants by the overland route are pour ing into the State in great numbers. The majority of the trains bad more or less dif ficulty with the Indians. The trade of San Francisco was general ly dull. to The Northern Light brings a full list of the pMsengera aboard of the lost steamer Central America. : The whole number of faarengers was 45V known to be saved 00, total number of passengers lost 343. The crew numbered . 101, number saved 29, total number lost 72. Total number of lives lost 426. . .. - CHcTaoo, Oct. 17. The returns from Minnesota indicate the election of Ramsey, Republican, for Governor. 8even counties have been heard from. and the indications are that the Republi cans will elect their ticket by 3,000 majori ty, a-Democratic gain since the Presi dential election of 5,000. t .
