To-day we throw our banner to the

Harris, inscribed thereon. It is un
necessary now to speak of tho quali
ties of our candidate, or Lis p culiar
fitness for the station. ' Suffice it to
say that he is the present iucumb'?nt,
-and so faithfully has he fulfilled the
duties of his trust,' that even the
know-nothings have fuled to find
fault with him. Below may be found,
P.fX(t from ihn TTri5rn & A mi nMn

ties in this State, and exposed in a

izing, in concert with the Black Re

possession of the State and Federal
Governments. ; " ' -

.. Before the retirement of the com

ced in a few eloquent and impressive
remarks, the death of Hon. Aaron V
Brown, Postmaster General, and pro
posed the. following resolutions:
The Democratic party in Tennes
see have beard with deep regret of
tbe. decease of the Hon. Aaron V.
Brown, late Postmaster General of
the United States. Connected with
us for more than thirty years as an
able, efficient and indefatigable Dem
ocrat, performing bis whole duty : in
every station to which he was assign
ed, and truff and reliable in all tbe
vicissitudes of our fortune, bis death
is to us an irreparable loss. Possess
ed of. a strong intellect, firm person,
easy address, much experience, great
good nature and.libeial feelings, he
uatu rally exercised over us all much
influence, and it was always exerted
to calm angry passions, to heal
dissensions, and preserve intact nil
our energies for use against our. op
ponents. He was ambitious, " and
sought his own elevation, but not at
.he expense of the interests of his
party; he was always ready to yield
bis own desires, whenever the sacrifice
was necessary, and to bear bis full
share of the misfortune entailed by
defeat. He never shrank from his
share of the trouble, sufferings and
expense of a political campaign, or
felt tbe petty rivalry caused by the
applause heaped ou a political friend.
Whilst in official station, he was lib
eral, generous and true to his friends, '
granting all that could properly be
asked of him, urging promptly thir .strite to make as near an approach
claims upon his superior, and ever; to a Constitutional currency as ua
stOJiing to feel that his pleasure was
greater in bestowing than receiving
office. His bouse was the hostelrey ;the welfare of the State, that in all
of his friends, his door always open,' charters of incorporation, granted by
and his table always spread for them '
with the plenty of the land.
, lie is gone 1 We shall hear no
mora his words of wisdom in our
councils, or his arguments, persua
sions, and eloquence on the hustings;
he has left us only bis memory and
example, as a feeble tribute to bisjotism of tbe Presideut of the United
R'.solved, That m the death of
Aaron. V. Brown, the Democntic
party of Tennessee feel that they
have suflared . a great misfortune;
they have lost au able counsellor and
efficient champion in all their future
contests; he was one of tho last and
bst of the gallant soldieis in our State
who led the contest of the past age,
and his name will bo inscribed with
thost of Jackson,. Grundy, Polk and
Resolved, That we now adjourn our
deliberations for a short period, as a
further testimony of our respect, and
that these proceedings be published
in all the Democratic newspapers
throughout the State.
. Hon.' A. 0. P. Nicholson pronounc
ed a touching eulogy on the charac
ter of the deceased and seconded the
. Hon, Cave Johnson, the life-long
friend and associate; of Gov. Brown,
being invited to the stand testified
with great feeling his high apprecia
tion of tbe character of his departed
friend. ' ' ' .. ,

The Convention mt according to
adjournment, when after a short de
lay tne Committee on Resolutions
submitted through Hon. Andrew Ew

port: N .
Resolxed, ' That . the Democratic
party adhere with ' unchanging faith
to the principles heretofore adopted
in their conventions in regard to a
strict constri ction of the language
of the Constitution, giving powers , to
the different departments of our Fed-I
eral Government,' and that they be
lieve most of the evils developed - in
our system of Administration have
arisen from a failure in the practice
of this fundamental rule in its inter
pretation;; v - " ': : "j;
V Resolved. ' That a tariff for r eve
nut alone is the true policy : of the
country and a correct exposition of
the power of Congress on the subject
of indirect taxation.' 'The amount
necessary for revenue will rary Vith
the necessities of the Government,
A but the principle itself is immutable.
Resolved, That roe. acquisition, of

eminently desirable for tbe safety.

ure any measure consistent with jus
tice, that would accomplish this ob
ject We can never' consent to'its
appropriation by any of the powerful
State3 of Europe, and would incur all
the danger of war, rather than acqui
esce in such a result.', y ' '-
Resolved, That we are satisfied
with the views annonoced by tbe So
preme Court of tbe United States in
the celebrated case of "Dred Scott,"
ou tbe rights of slaveholders and the
statu of slavery in' the Territories,
nndaro willing to abide by theprinci.
pies . announced in that decision
Slavery and the rights of slavehol
ders are protected by tbe Constitution
of -the United States, and by an ap
peal to, the action of the judicial tri
bunals of the Union, until the forma
tion of a constitution by the people of
a Territory, and then the State must
decide for itself on . that, as well as
other legitimate subjects of govern
ment. . Resolved, That it was intended by
the framers o the Constitution that
gold and silvershould be the legitimate
currency of our people, and we deeply 4
regret that Banking institutions and
paper circulation should ever have
been so deeply engrafted into our pe
cuniary relations; but being so engraf
ted we are compelled to legislate
under the circumstances by which we
are surrounded. In view , of which,
as a remedy fur existing evils, we
will insist that our present banking
system shall be so reformed as to
enforce invariable redemption at their
counters of their circulation by every
Bank in the State,and a limitation on
their issues to notes of a large denomi
nation,! ncresd protection to the note
holder, the right of supervision upon
tbe part of the State.and a forfeiture ( f
their charters lor abuses T then
privileges and by these and such
other steps as experience may dmon-
i be found wise and proper.
Resolved, That it is essential to
the Legislature, that the power
should be reserved in nil cases , to
change, modify, or abolish these pri
vate and privileged incorporations as

BANKS AND BANKING.
Me.N. 0, Wallace: There is ft
universal opinion among the people,
that there are numerous evils exist
ing in the Banking System of the
present day. Yet, whilst all admit
this, there are those who contend that
these evils may be remied, and the
system so modified as to be produc-!
tive of great good to the country. .
It is true, no doubt, that some of
these evils might be remedied; but
most of them are ndical defects in
herent in the system and cannot,
therefore, bo cured. -
The principal among these inhe
rent evils are the following:
1st. It drives out of circulation,
. . 1
fonflir in anantitiA
2d. It, at one time, stimulates the
business of the country to an unnat
ural degree of activity, and corrcs
pondiitgly depresses it, at another.
3d. It expels the specie from the
4th. It subjects the people to in
calculable losses, by Ireqaeat suspen
sions of specie payment, and the con
stant breaking of banks.
5th.. It cannot be relied upon, by
the business community.
Gib. It counteracts the influence of;
protedire duties, a ml retards tne nat
ural growth of domestic manufactures.
I shall examine tliese propositions j
in the order in which th?y stand.
1st. It drives out of circulation, a
stead' and uniform currencri, and
substitutes in its stead, one which is
'constantly fluctuating iu quantity
I , 77,
. , , .
Gold and silver, on account oftheir
uniformity in quantity and quality,
ate admiiably adapted for a circula
ting medium. It is this quality which
has caused them to be adopted, uni
versally, as the . circulating medium
of the world.
The only chaDge to which they are
subject, is that they are constantly
an( gradually increasing with the
growth of population and the expan
sion of commerce. . '
' From the best estimates, the gold
and silver coin in the United States
at the present time, amounts to about
,.'io4ff m:llions 0f doU.-.rs.' " A very
small fraction "of that amount is used
as a circulating medium. . Whit has
become of it? ' The banks have about
74 millions locked up inlbeir vaults;
an'J .the gicaler portion of the re
mainder, they have driven into the
hands - of the brokers, there to be
bought and iold as an article of commerce.-
Now how much of tbeir "own cur
rency have they given us; for this
O millions. V.-.'-
According to the reporc oi me
SocQary of the. Treasury of the U
nited States, in 1858, thtre was in
1857 a paper circulation of 214 mil
lions of dollars; the ; largest amount
which has ever .been m - circulation
since the organization of the govern
ment Thus- it appears that ; our
bank-note circulation has never
reached an amount equal to the gold
and silver in the country; but in many
instances it has fallen below half that
amount One would naturally sup
pose, that iq exchanging such a large
amount of specie, for a smaller one of
paper, that the latter ought to be su
perior to the former as a circulating
medium. .But we shall see mar sucn
ia.&r from heinir the case One of
the most essential requisites of a good
circulating medium is that it should
be uniform in amount - But paper
money, on the contrary, is constantly
fluctuating. At one time the coun
try is flooded with more money than
the legitimate wants, of commerce'de
mand, a't another there js' not; suffi
cient to. movethe produce of the
'' ' ' k rt9 . 1 1
country to market. , . ims resuiis
from the very nature of the banking
system. .Those who engage in the
business oi Donning-, - ao bo iur. iu
purpose of making money.. It is to
tbeir interest. to put into circulation
ks great'an amount of their paper as
possible. The greater , that amount
is over the specie in their vaults, tne
a Heady ana vmj or m currency, uXQ ft sy5,em tthith allowg the
substitutes in ita-sUnd, one which I3)b;inks to issoemore than one . dollar
greater will be tbeir profits.-- Hence, 'at -last accounts had not been arres
in times of prosperity, they aflbrd theted. .V;;; X;
people every ' inducement to borrow
largely. The country soon becomes
flooded with their paper; and business
of .every, description exciteit to an
nnnsual degree of activity; ' which, in
turn,creates a still greater demand for
money- .But in a few years the!
banks have, gone to tbe extent of'. wwe ;ior ai,uuy ; commission
.t. in rru i ' a in getting a husbauu-for the wonnn,
theirabihty. They have issued from, n , A - A r , . P '
three to four dollars of p:per to one of
specie in tbeir vaults; and so soon as
any considerable demand i3tnade up
on them.for goldund diver, self-preservation
compels them to cease loan
ing, and to call in their circulation.
Thus a process of contraction is com-
menced until, perhaps, tbe circulating
medium is reduced to one-half its
former amount. Now so loner as wel
of paper for one of specie in their
vaults, the currency of the country
will be iu a constant state of expan
sions . and contractions. This has
been the condition of tho currency,
ever since tho introduction of the
bankiug eysUm into this country.

Subject to the action of a district con
vention: D. M: Currin, a prominent
Democrat, Assumes that he is the
choice of tbe purty in tie district,

He thus acts as a disorganize. and
seeks to rule or ruin the party. The
district is closely contested, and the
Know Nothings, encouraged by Cur

The Washington correspondent of
the Bnltimore Sun writes: "It is
said, oa apparently good authority,
that the Frceident- has determined
to call the next Congress to meet on
the first of October. Sbouhl this be
done, it is probable that a continuous
session will be held till tie following
January, allowing for a fortnight's
recess during the Christmas and rsew
Years holidays. Still it is -possible
that events may render the presence
of the legislative body at an earlier
day,- As Congress has refused" to
confer powr upon the President
even for the protection of- American
interests abroad,. they may probably
be called vtogether to act themselves
upon the subject when it shall be
come necessary, as it certainly will."
