CALL IN BTlfSBY. "If so be as how the ship am gone down, then the boy won't come back. If so be as how the ship am not gone dvwn, the boy will come back." It is scarcely necessary to say that the words we have quoted above fell from the lips of Capt, Jack Bunsby, on&,jol the ornaments of the British merchant service. " There is wisdom for you," is an expression that fell from the lips of another ornament of the same service. It is hardly neces sary to advise the learned reader that we allude to in short Captain Cuttle. Bunsby and Cuttle were fast friends. The former, whether from the circum stance of always keeping one eye fixed on the coast of Greenland,, or other wise, was almost worshiped by the good but simple-minded Cuttle, . Mr. Doraby had sent a young man to Demerera on business. In course of time intelligence came that the ship on which he em barked had foundered. " Bunsby who, ia the estimation of his frienj was half a dozen Websters rolled into one coloa- cai whole, was consulted as an oracle. Spreading on the floor a map of the seas the ship must have traversed, and keep ing one eye on the coast of Greenland, he delivered the opinion we have quoted at the bee'iDnine of this article. We ex press no opinion of our own as to the merits of the opinion, though it extorted the most extravagant praise from the man with a great honest, tender heart in his bosom, and a bright pair of sugar tongs in his pocket. And so, if we have any Cuttles in this country, let them summon all the Jack Bunsbys they can bear of and set them to calculating the chances of the safety of the pleasure party that went out from onr shores on board the Tennessee, bound for the shores of San Domingo. We should perpetrate a Terbal inconsistency to adopt the language of Bunsby, in char acterization of the possible fate of Ben Wade and party. We should unsay what we have said on a former occasion when referring to this identical subject We ecorn to be inconsistent. But let others do that which we cannot do. Perhaps we are wrong and Bunsby right Other Bunsbys may console the Administra tion. If the Tennessee went down, the party will not come back. If the Ten jieiee has not gone down, the party may come back.' People generally may be more difficult to satisfy than Cattle was. Meantime, as the vessel should have reached her destination within the space of eight or ten days, and has been out twenty-odd days and has never been heard from, we cannot perceive any hope for its safety, except that founded on the Bunsby philosophy. " SOUTHERJf PACIFIC aAlLBOAD. If we may repose our faith in the truth of ieleirraDhie reports from Wash ington, the' bill to, appropriate public lands in aid of the construction of the SnutWn Pacific, railroad will pass tri umphantly through Congress. We hove been slow to believe man is ,nuu u.ij chance at all of going through, and are glad enough to find that we have been mistaken. It seems that a test vote one hundred and twenty-nine to sixty-two h. settled its fate. After the nfteentn of this month it will be taken up by the Wnne. and. it is said, will Bass. Mean time it remains in the bands of the Pa cific Railroad Committee. But the as sent of both' Houses does not dispose of it. In his message to Congress, the President notifies it that bills granting any more lands to eorporations would encounter his veto. ,.- W have no doubt he will veto it should it pass. His hatred of the South i i so intense that he' is totally disqualified from treating it with that justice which is common among civilised com munities, and especially that justice which is due from the first ofheer of the Government to the people, whose repre sentative (theoretically at least) he is. Another President will sign the bill, or one similar, and the road will be built. Grant can obstruct it two years, and possibly six, but the work is a fixed fact, if anything that has not transpired may be styled a fact. The work will proceed, veto or no veto, and will go through hether its- ereatest enemy live to ob struct it or die hating it. LATEST TELEGRAMS. l stpell th Ledger.

The British Government desired the commission should consist of only three members, but the Government at Washington in sisted on ten, and England yielded. - Hon.

Thb New York Express, of the 4th inst, says: "The price ot breaasiuns since the fall of Paris does not satisfy the speculators, and we are glad of it These persons ought to have known that the fall of Paris, which , was to come about the time it did, was long ago dis counted in both the' money and grain markets of the country. Besides, No. 2 spring wheat is more than 40c higher than it was a year since, and with stock January 1. 1871, 122,000 barrels larger than the previous year, and with receipts for January, "1871, 52,000 barrels larger than January. 180. the exports have only increased 6500 barrels, leaving an apparent discrepancy in Btocks on hand February 1st, of 167,500 barrels against us. compared with last year. In wheat there is a falling off in the January ex ports of 162,000 bushels. ' Th New York Journal of Commerce, in an article on the course of Gambetta, says if peace is not made by the Bor deaux Assembly, the renewal of the war can have but one ending, and that the complete ruin of all that is left to France.

The at tendance of preminent merchants and business men was very large. , The sub scription amounts to $6675. The entries for the July and August meeting at the Monmouth Park Course Long Branch, closed on the 1st of Feb ruary, but the secretary waited for en tries by mail lne lists were not com pleted nntil yesterday. In seven stakes of the July meeting one hundred and forty-two of the finest horses in the coun try are entered; and for the Augnst meeting the number is even greater, Nearly all ' of the old favorites will ap pear, and several new and good ones are entered The American Skating Congress held their annual meeting yesterday at the right to govern a country which was un- Hoffman House.

The Senate of Mississippi has run a close race with, overtaken and throttled one of a class of measures precipitated on the South by the race of carpet-baggers. It has defeated a bill (by a ma jority of two votes) making it a misde meanor for any inn-keeper to make dis tinction on account of race or color. The animus of the measure is this: There is an excellent hotel in Jackson kept by a gentleman who has made his money by industry. He embarks in the hotel business, as men embark in any other business, to make money. He in vests his money in it. He provides everything suited to the business. Hi parlors are richly carpeted and gorgeously furnished. His rooms con tain clean beds and furniture suited to the comfort of clean people. His table is luxurious, and patronized by the highest people of the land. A negro from a cotton-field, or from a night of debauch, carrying fifty pounds of dirt on his clothes and body, and a gallon of the meanest whisky that the genius of the still can invent, in his stomach, demands one of the best rooms in the hotel de mands to sit at the table with the guests demands to spread himself out in the parlors, and to make himself at home generally. Many negroes demand the aame privilege, and enforce it by the law. To deny it to them is a misdemeanor and punishable. What can the inn-keeper do to protect himself? Why, quit the business or keep a negro hotel, as the whites will de?ert his house. If the vil lainous act had passed, it would have closed op every hotel in Mississippi. The result would have been this: A white man, possessing the pride and instincts of his race, could not keep a hotel in the State. This is Radi calism. It hates, it despises, it damns the white race of the Sonth. In attempting to force the negro into the circles and companionship of whites, it is not actuated so much by a de-aire to benefit the negro as it is to wound, hu miliate and ruin th whites. tection of German bayonets, and with the aid of those Imperial civilians and soldiers, including many of the prison ers from Sedan and Metz, whom Gam- be tt a' s rash order has exasperated. Sincs Postmaster General Creswell's disgraceful connection with the Cborpen ning fraud has been exposed, other trans actions not creditable to him are coming to light. A correspondent of the Wash ington Patriot writes: There is a small item I have a desire to let you know, which will assist yon in developing the very honest manner in which the Postmaster General adminis ters the duties of his office, namely: A party from New York offered to convey the mails to Galveston for twenty-four thousand dollars once a week.1 Another party from Baltimore offered to do the same once a fortnight for thirty-six thou sand dollars. The Baltimore party got the contract. Why? Let it be investi gated. - s : ; i The, World saysj The Hon. B.,R. Butler is about to bring his acquittal to pecuniary account by suing for libel all the papers that have expressed an unfa vorable opinion of him, the damages to his fair fame being estimated at 130,000 in each instance. As there are about 8000 papers published in America, his prospective profit will be $240,000,000. j Evclasd is excited over an article in the London Saturday Review, broadly asserting that female tippling prevails to an alarming extent in British upper tendom. A few years ago a Sew York literary journal mad charges of a similar kiud in respect to American " society," but they were perhnps not refuted, but indignantly denied. , Yoi ko Grant has been expelled from West Point for a variety of rascalities, among which is said to be that of lying. If the President's own son can't cultivate at West Point the qualities necessary to secure an appointment under the present Administration, he, institution had bet ter be abolished. So says the Courier- Journal. Governor Bullock, of Georgia, has appointed several prominent gentlemen of that State a committee to wait upon the Kentucky Legislature, and urge upon that body the importance to Georgia of granting a charter to the Cincinnati Southern railway. The delegation is now en route for Frankfort. Gambetta is reported to have resigned and thrown up the sponge in disgust. He is supposed to have been the only stumbling-block in the way of the resto ration of the Empire. A New York paper hoists the name of Allen G. Thurman and John Quincy Adams as candidates for President and Vic President in 1872. An old man, who went to the depot in Wilmington, Del., to meet his daughter, who had com from Maryland to visit him, joyfully greeted her in the waiting room, but had scarcely uttered his words cf welcome when h tottered: fell, and died. The physician said the cause of death was enlargement of the heart. They tell of a young lady at Rondout, New York, who has a passion lor walk ing barefoot in the mow. , the advancement of the art ot skating and the forming of rules to go ern con tests. No business or importance was transacted. .The police of Brooklyn have been nnable to arrest the boy who has fright ened the ladies of Brooklyn for some time past, notwithstanding the large reward offered for his arrest. John H.' Deven, the accomplice of William Kelly, both alleged murderers of Garrett W. Costran, at Syacott, Long Island, on January 21st, has, it is said, confessed the commission of the crime, at the request of his father and mother, who visited him in jail. Kelly denies the crime. PorcHKECPHis, February 10. Work men are now engaged in raising the en gine, and will probably find more bodies to-day. Th impression from evidence given is, that the accident was the result of carelessness on the part of the freight conductor in not having a signal cord on his train and brakemen in proper po sition and the company not enforcing the rules for carrying signal cards through the train. The examination continues to-day. WASHINGTON. Caaareaelaaal Praecedlasra. Washisctox, February 10. Mr. Hoar's bill provides a national system of education, and is not likely to pass. The chief value of the debate upon it is to direct public attention to the deplorable state of ignorance prevailing at the South, and the possible necessity for the General Government to give some tem porary aid toward starting common school education in the Southern States. The strongest objection against the bill is that instead of stimulating the States to greater exertion, it takes the matter really away from such as have not pro vided free schools and places it nnder control of the Government. The fear of amendments plunging the House into an endless debate on tariff reduption and (he abolition of the inter nal tax, was the cause of the defeat of the first step taken in the Honse yester day morning toward the abolition of the odious income tax. Very much interest was shown as to the result of the vote on the main question after going into Com mittee of the Whole on the bill, and when it was announced there was im mense clapping of hands by fhe major ity, who evidently thought it a great victory. Mr. Hooper, who has charge (if the bill, will make another trial some day next week, when it is hoped be will succeed ir. getting the matter before the House. In the Senate a memorial was pre sented from the New York Reform League asking that a commission be sent South to inquire into the condition of the freedmen, and suggest a mode for improving their condition. The House bill regulating rank in the nary was reported from the Committee on Naval Affairs with an amendment. The Senate at 12 40 went into execu tive iemion to resume consideration of the nomination of the commissioner to settle the Alabama claim and other fuestion with Great Britain. Caaatltntlonal Convention An other Trunk , Line to the Mortis went. St. Louis, February 10. In the Mis souri House ot .representatives a reso- ution for calling a Constitutional Con vention was passed by a vote of 71 to 43, The result in the Senate ia doubtful. Important negotiations have just been concluded in this city, whereby St. Loui to have another, trunk line to th Northwest. Mr. Joy, representing Han ibal, and other railroads, after a full conference with the committee represent ing the corporation known as the St. Louis and Keokuk Railroad Company, has agreed to build the road last named on the chartered route from St. Charles to Hannibal via Louisiana, and the Han nibal and St. Joseph railroad is to con nect with it at or near New London by a branch from Monroe City the whole track to be finished and in running order within the present year. ' It will leave a gap from St. Charles to this city, which it is proposed to 11 up by build ing an independent line. It is under stood the object of this movement is to run a continuous line from St. Louis to Omaha nnder one management. CHICAGO. Arrival of Bret Hcrte. Chicago, February 10. Mr. F.

' This evening he will be the hero of a select reception at the resi dence of Wirt Dexter, Esq. IMPORTANT CHASCERY SUITS. The ronntr Court Held Liable for SZl.OOO in Kontia lunrd in for the Benefit of the Widows of Tennessee volunteers. Two suits were commenced yesterday in the second Chancery court, ot con siderable importance. The stvles of the suits are: Demsey Weaver, trustee, et al vs. the County Court and twenty-one Justices and ex-Justices of the county, and Sam. Watson, Receiver of the Bank of Tennessee, and stockholders against the same parties. The bonds were issued under an act qf the Legislature of 1861. The bonds explain the object for which they were issued, and we append a copy qf one of them for this purpose: Bonn On Thousavd Dollars. I Stats or Tixkihsix, Bhxlst County : I Six months after date the County of Shelby will pay to George K. rowel, Revenue Collector, O.ve Thousand Doi.- rs.

J. W. A. Pettit, Judge. Countersigned and scaled by John Trezevant, Clerk. These bonds were discounted in 161 at the different banks' of this city, and the Receivers and Trustees now seek to recover the amount of these bonds from the County Court, or from the respective magistrates, whom the plaintiffs claim ate individually liable. Several other "bills will be filed to-day on bonds issued for the same purpose. A short time since a motion was mede in the County Court to appropriate money for the payment of these bonds, which ap plication was refused. The plaintiffs now seek their remedy by filing an orig inal bill in the Second Chancery Court. Blver Disasters. The following it from one of our very best citizens, on a subject of very greet importance: X th Editor or tb Ledger : The public miad, seems thoroughly aroused' to the importance of adopting ome measure for the greater security of human life upon railwavs and steam boats. Tbe frequent and! appalling dis aster upon our Western water Uave created a general and well grounded di( trust of the security of that mode of traveling. Ingemou theories as to the cause of these disasters have been ad vanced. My observation lead me to believe that, in many instances, one cause is apparent to every careful ob server, and yet I have not seen it men tioned by any of those who have ex pended so mach learning in devising ingenious theories. ! I verily believe that tbe ban inside of our steamboats are officers of the boats worshiuiuit at me iima ahrine. Now. while lam no tem perance lecturer, I do say that mon who habitually and frequently indulgo in the use of wliisay, while on duty on steam boats and railroads, are hot fit to bo trusted with the lives and the property of their lellow-men.;' Ann i verily ncueve if the sale of spirituous liquors were rig idly prohibited ita steamboats that tbe number of river catastrophes would be greatly diminished. I am aware this Will IO ln'uou hau aa an insult to the liberal ideas of il.o ni-Bunnt dav uDon the subieot oil drunkenness and the responsibility of the respectable' drunkard lor hi acts when under the influence of whiBkyYyet I venture to exoress my convictions..- I trust one of the "despotio powers" of the comina InRDector, of whom you sneak, will be exercised In the bamsb' nient of ban from steamboats. r-: Ho w a Whole Family Became Blind From the Cambridge (Mass.)

' During one of her journeys she visited the neighborhood in which resided the ancestors of those who are now sightless. Instead of her helpless condition exciting, as it should have done, a feeling of sympathy, she was treated with ridicule by some of the younger members of the house her evil star had led her into, two ot tne hoys, as a matter of mere deviltry, took her out, promising to conduct hnr in n iilmB where nlentv awaited Instead of giving her a safe conduct, V I'S I T T IX 12 GHEAT FEflEr.'?TGnY CLEARING SALE I OF THE- RETAIL DRY GOODS STOCK to V WALKEH BROS. & CO.'S, NO. 231 MAIN STREET.
