The Lceoinpton Conatllutlon. in Con- ' "--'--' greaa. The constitution which waa formed by the 'people of Kansas, in' convention at Lecomp ton, has been duly submitted to Con grew; and application ia formally made for admission in to the Union on an equal footing with the other States. The iteme in fairly and squarely propounded, ah all the be admitted? and there upon "comes the tug of war." We have very little doubt that the Senate will act affirma tively by a large majority and the great and heated work will be left to the House of Rep resentatives. In that body we may expect an arduous, if not a prolonged struggle. For the quiet, repose ad eu!tantial good of the coun try, we could have wished that this contest might have been avoids. But it is already clear that there is a strong, a powerful party in the North, determined at every hazard to oppose the admission of any more States into the Union, tolerating the institution of do mestic slavery a party indeed blind to the demands of justice and equality, that has made unto itself a law higher than the consti tution, and that is prepared to let the Union slide rather than permit another Slave Sute to enter the confederacy. The object is, un questionably, to reduce the slave-holding States to a hopeless minority in Congress, and so bring them to absolute dependence up on the capricious will of a hostile majority- to make one portion of an equal and co-sove reign federation of Stag's, a mere province, to be held in subjection to the other portion. Who denies these facts, has read the history of the slavery agitation to little purpose, and hat of the black republican party to much less. It then becomes a question with sin cere and patriotic men everywhere, whether such a state of affuirs should lie permitted, whether the great fundamental principle of liberty and equality, upon which the Repub lic rests, shall be so undermined and broken; and especially does it become a grave question whether the South will submit to it The re jection of Kansas, although it would not con summate the aim, would be such a step in that direction as would make others easy, and next to inevitable. Whatever may be said to the contrary, the gravamen of the objection to the admission of Kansas is, that the black re publicans did not have the formation of its constitution, and that the one now -presented tolerates and protects slavery. There is not a voice in all the opposition, which would be raised against the constitution, if it had pro hibited slavery, and the black republicans could have glided into undisputed power un der its operation. This is apparent from the case of Oregon. This territory stands on precisely the same principle, asking admission, that Kansas does; and yet nobody objects to the admission of Oregon. The present struggle, therefore, on the ad mission of Kansas, could .only have lieen avoided by the absolute and unconditional surrender and submission of the slaveholding States. And inasmuch as this issue is appa rent and inevitable, it is as well now as ever. In matters of expediency, we may all or d to yield and compromise; but on questions af fecting the principles of justice, equality and right, the substratum of liberty and indepen dence, and in themselves vital, there can lie no alternatives but dishonorable submis sion, and manlv rniuu.!tikn Tha nu can never command the respect of oth ers, until . she preserves and maintains her own self-respect We lay down, neither for ourselves nor for the South, any spe cific ultimatum, at the present We can consider, hereafter, whether the benefits of the Union counterbalance the evils which may spring out of the rejection of Kansas. An is sue is presented, and it is with that, we have to deal. It is the imperative duty of the men of the South, as well as all others who value the glorious principles of true republicanism, to meet it with all the calm lirinn -ss "that its weight and gravity demaud-. It is not an is sue for fiery declamation, and individual po lemic triumph. These but fan names that were better sraothercvl. It is an occasion for the full play of 'wisdom and statesmanship, for deliberate, but resolute advocacy of right, and a devotional defence of the Constitution and the Republic. It is not a time for timid men, or temporizing counsels, or ignoble con cessions. Right must vindicate itself. The South, if the North shall not, must stand fist upon the Constitution, and in so doing defend herself. If disruption ensue, 1 t others lw re sponsible to history and posterity. We anticipate a stormy time in the House of Representatives at Washington stormy, not ia the flippant signification of the term, as qualifying a temp-ft in a ten-pot, butdee ly and solemuly tcnqtesttiou. We trust there is no man from the South, who will seek shel ter from its vioL-nce, by a trjuelpTuiM sur render. The darkly rolling Rubicon- dashes at our feet Hesitation is doubt, doubt weak ness, weakness defeat, defeat mortification and shame. Let the black tlood be defied, and crossed where we have como to it The sold ier who bears the constitution will not seek up and down for more convenient crossings. But while so, we trust there will lie neither confusion nor trepidation, but such determi nation and self-possession, as will make it easy and graceful. At present the indications are that the friends of admission may fail in the Houst, but this is no reason for refusing tn defend the right It will only nerve the "courageous heart to worthier doeds ami nobler exertions. So let it be. The Hell Keaolutloiia. The discussion of these resolutio im will be resumed in the House of Representative, to night. The friends of Mr. Bku. iu the House, as those in the Senate did, are making a vigorous and powerful ppitinii to the ferocious pursuit with which the sham-democracy are persecuting tiio Hon. Jous Bklu The speech of Mr. Goixaj.at, the able Representative from Wilson county, was an elaborate and brilliant effort It oc cupied more than two hours in its delivery, and was justly considered, on all sid.-s, as one of the most able sp-eche of the scsnion. We congratulate his constituency on the ability of a Representative, of whom they may be justly proud. . - The speech of Mr. Kcnpkiok, on Friday night, was a lengthy and masterly argument of the questions involved in the delutte. Iiy this effort he added much to his already high reputation as a rigid thinker-mid close reason er. . Whatever may be the fate of the resolu tions, there can lie nothing more certain than that their support -rs are vanquished in every part of the field to which their discussluna ex tend. Who Didn't!

These companies, like most other employers were, and many of them still are, payiug salaries graduated in accordance with the value of money, prosperity of busi ness, inflated condition of things generally, and high prices of produce ruling prior to the hard times.

How 8am KeCrarr Won th RIttle. BT TOOTER. In the summer of "57, Sam McCrary had oc casion to visit Ducktown. Upon his way he found it necessary to seek entertainment for a night with a dozen or more teamsters, who were encamped near CoL" Park's residence in'Polk county, and immediately on the bank of the Ocoee, where it bursts through the Chilhowie mountain. As has been usual with Sam since his late visit to Nashville, on which occasion he came so near making a "big rize?' at cards, he did not leave home without being provided with an old deck of '-plaid backs.! the ten spots of which bore numerous signs that would serve for a keen eye to determine them from cards of a lees value. Soon after his arrival at the en campment, to his great delight, he found a teamster who was willing to back his judg ment at a game of "old sledge" the latter putting op, as aT stake, an old bag of bones done up in a mule's hide against Judge, a little heavy set, fourteen hand pony that the former had got into his possession somehow in the Presidential canvass of '56, and was now ri ding. The preliminaries being settled, and a fresh supply of light wood thrown into the fire, the game commenced, each player seated upon the ground with a half bushel measure inverted between them, upon the bottom of which they played. "A fair game," said Sam, "no crimpin, nor bendin, nor fiirtin jacks from the South." "Nor stock in, nor palm in." cooly remark ed his adversary. While tbiB conversation was going on, one of the teamster's associates crept to a large tree that stood near by, and, by the aid of a fence rail, which he leaned against its trunk, managed to ascend to a limb that, some fif teen feet from the ground, projected almost immediately over those engaged in the game. Creeping along upon this limb, he selected a position from which he could distinctly see the cards in Sam's hands, and, from certain signs understood between the parties, give his ad versary such information as would enable him to play to the best advantage. Matters thus arranged, it could not be expected that Sam would lie successful. I le, however, mistrusted nothing, and consequently could not account for his losing almost every game. Nine games had alreany been scored against him, and it was six to five in the tenth which if he lost would make Juihje the property of anoth er. About this time Sam felt gloomy enough indeed. And, his mind reverting back to the circumstances under which he had come into possession of Jiuhje, he could not help feeling that his present lad run was altogether owing to the interference of a just providence. Yet, being the non-dealer, with a steady nerve he raised the cards that had been dealt to him, looking over them and finding no trumps, he said. "I beg." His adversary finding nothing but the eight of trumps, had to await the proper " item " from the fellow upon the limb Itefore he could determine what to do. A sudden inclination of the head indicated to run the cards. This lieing done, Sam was fortunate enough to raise the ace and deuce, mid took down a marker. The game now took a change in his favor. Every time he would leg, the cards were run. The fact was. that the man that had Isn-n placed upon the limb, to give item, had fallen asleep, and consequently was nodding all the while, trump or no trumps, by which means the advantage was iu Sam's favor. Now the market's as rapidly disapjienred as tbeyhnd been piled up, until they had not only all been removed, but the number scored in his favor that was necessary to make the mnle his prop erty. Just at this time the man ujioii the limb became so sound asleep, and kept such a sway ing to and fro as to lose his balance, and but for a knot that caught in the seat of his pan taloons, would have fallen to the ground. As it was. be swnn.T ih. i-.""11""- u - der side of the limb like an opossum support ed by its tail. His struggles at once attract ed the attention of the whole party. And, though his situation was certainly anything but agreeable, no one seemed at ull disposed to render him the least asistanes. Instead, they taunted him with his faithb ssness, de claring he might hang there 'til doom's day for all they cared. "Why don't you onkwilu your tail and drap," said one. A second, "You stick as tite as death to a dyin' calf." A th'rd, "You're a nice feller to be placed upon watch: you let the iuimy in without firin' a gun." A fourth, "Well, I never did hare any con fidence in the feller since lie stole the tar outen the huls of his own wagon and sold it for tanil-foot.' " All this time Sam looked on in amazement, not knowing what to make of it. The true state of the case, however, soon flashed into his mind: and looking up at the poor fright ened, helpless wretch, he remarked : "I guess old fell from the way you keep dodliu that little cimlin head of your'n. there must lie an awful hand of trump out" Jiift at this time, the little fi How having kept such a wrigiing, and twisting, and kick ing, some of the front fastuinp of his punta loons gave way, letting the lower extremity of his shirt fall out, so as to 1-c quite at the mercy of the night-wind, which scorned to take a peculiar delight in playing with the tattered garment At this new phase, there were no tounds to the merriment of those looking on. With their hand upon their sides, as though to keep fioin bursting, some rolled upon the ground, others shouted at the top of their voices: "It's time to gear up, Itoy's, the nioruin' star's riz." "D n the inoruin'star,"saida dry looking chap. "That's no mornin' star, nor evenin' star nother; its a comit see what a long tail its got." In the nrdst of all this confusion, the main a-aist-lnd button gave way, letting the un fortunate w retch assume a perpendicular in stead of a horizontal position owing to the fact that his pantaloons were too tight alxmt the ankles to permit his f.et, notwithstanding they were unincumbered with leather, to pass through. This of course did not lessen his peril in the h ast And here he hung, head downwards, vibrating like the pendulum of a large clock uutil one of his comrades, taking piece of tallow, went up and relieved him by thoroughly greasing the part to which the narrow srtion of the pantaloon bad clung so tenaciously, letting the ioor wntch Ull to the earth. Happeniug to alight on his feet, he at once struck off at a "two forty" lick. Taking the direction of Col. Park's mill pond, which was near by, a few stride In ought him to iU immediate verge. The liauk not being very high, m the hurry, he mistook the sur face of the water for good runuiug ground, and with a desperate lunge, he ran far into the stream before he could check his headway. Disappearing for a moment, he arose about the middle of the stream, and with a bold stroke struck out for the opposite shore, a hich having reached, be ascended aud at ouce dis appeared in the surrounding darkness.

In the Raccoon mountain, immediately upon the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad, and thirteen miles from thiscity. is found the -ttna coal mines. Having but little idea of min ing operations, we sought the first opportuni ty to gratify our curiosity by a visit to the iitna precincts. We were amply paid for our visit; ess-cially, wheu we recolhct the atten tions shown us on the occasion by the accom modating, urbane, and polished agent for this city, Mr. G. F. Switr. These mines are situa ted in a sort of cove or gulf of the Raccoon mountain, that seems to have Is-en formed by some terrible freak of nature, which has sev ered the mountain uunder( leaving upon its rugged and shattered sides, coal, this emblem of comfort a mine of wi ulth, the like of which is soon to revolutionize the South. On reaching the mines, the visitor is struck with au aspect of incomparable neatness, freshness and order, and the business-like p-p'-arance that characterises this little KngliAli village npou American foil. The major ior tion of the miners are, or have beeu the sub-ji-cts of John Hull. These mines have only ben in operation a short time, aud are own ed by Messrs. Wuitemke and Ckavkns of Chattanooga, and Ker Hoy-e. of S. C; and are leased for a half century by a company of New York gentlemen. This company have already expended between ninety and a hun dred thousand dollars, in equipiug the -t-tal-lisbment for permanent operations, w hich will undoiilitedly make them the first mines in the whole South. The ctial is of the Bituminous quality; in strata from two to five feet thick, overlaid with gigantic layers of staiid-etoue, which af fords s:-cure protection to the operatives, and is underlaid with a strata of the very best quality of tire clay. This coal, w hen used emits great heat, burn ing with a trilliunt light, leaving no dust and Isit little ashes. I'pou the whole we think this coal is more cleanly and comfortable in every respect than any we have ever seen used. The amount mined per month is about twelve hundred tons, liesid s. a large quautity of enl-e manuf.ictun-d ou the s;ot out of the fine or dust coal. We examined the parol list, and found .the number of bauds employed, oue hundred and four. We ditre say, there is nothing bat will have a greater effect iu r. tiding to the comfort ami convenience of the Southern people than the opening of these mines. This section of coantry is already reaping the benefits, and all intermediate places ujmhi the railroads be tween this point and the seaboard. The Gas companies of Knoxville and Atlanta are using this ceKtl In preference to any other, from the principal fact that the tarry nature of the coal furnishes a brilliancy to the gas that is unsurpasm-d for lieauty and neatness. The .Etna mines are supplying at thia time, Chattanooga, Louelem. Kueixville, Ifctlton, At lanta, Augusta, Macon, Columbus, Huntsville, and to some extent Nashville. Lieut. TIaury In the JVavjr. "Lieutenant Maury, who has been physical ly incajMicilated for naval service by a broken leg having beru r-s tored to rank by the Naval Courts, other officer uow demand that he either sent to m-a, or got out of the way of tbeir promotion by resignation." , We copy thcat-ove paragraph from an ex change aud we ho ie, fur the be Mior of I be eoun- try.lhat the lat statement U not true. Lieu ten ant Maury is an ornament to the country, and we rejoice that be baa been restored u rauk by the Naval Cuurta, and hope that he will neither resign nor get out of the way, to make room, perchance, for some lazy, wofthk-M fal low, who m''ht disgrace the American Navy. Lieutenant Maury has done store to promote nautical acieuce, than any man now living, and hence we urge that he thould be retained just so long a he livew. If he is incapacitated to do phyateal art-vice because of a lame leg hie head ia uot broken, aud by the aid of iu workinga, be can do quite a much aa can those w ho a ould supplant him by the combined power of tntdr kg and- ail other - qaaliA cauooa.
