The .reaent Epeech.es of Senator Seward in
CDgreM on Kanras affairs, have placed lira
a head and shoulders above any other man in
tbe Llack republican ranks. That a great
majority of that party are looking to him an
their candidate for the Presidency in 1860,
admits of my little doubt. The Near York
Courier and Enquirer, paper , which holds a
very high position in that party, and which
averts its face with contempt from the pro
posed reconstruction of parties, in the course
of an article eulogistic of Mr. Seward and
his last speech, says : . , ' (
"The' following extract of a letter from
Huwouri, fhows how it is appreciated there :
What think you of Seward's last? We
look upon it a ihe great speech of the day;
the ablcf-t of all bis fpeeches, and one which
'places him immeasurably in tbe van of all
the Statesmen of the country. We are get
ting it up as a Campaign Document for Kan
pas, where it will do everything for our cause.
If Sewabd live?, bis election to the Presidency
in 1860, is a settled affair.'
"We opine that there are scarcely two opin
ions upon the latter question. Tbe Republi
can Party cannot fail to nominate a RrprerenUi
twt man for their candidate in I860; and, of
course, Seward is tbe man. And what i
more, if our party should again, look chiefly
to expediency in selecting their nominee, the
selection could not fail to fall upon one who
by general consent, ia admitted to be our
ablest Statesman, and who is discovered to be
as conservative as be is fearless and able.
Even the South, have confidence in bisron
tervatitm, little as they like his indomitable
energy in exposing Slavery-extension."
We see no reason why the black republi
cans, if they determine to preserve their or
ganization, may not unite to a man on Mr,
Seward. Inasmuch as their faith rests upon
the doctrines of the Higher Law, it seems
that the father of that doctrine would be its
most proper exponent and champion. We
may, therefore, expect Mr. Seward to be the
black republican standard bearer two years
hence. Now, if the Southern democracy
shall at the same time place on the truck an
out and out Southern man, as such, as is not
at all unlikely, what will prevent the contest
from dwindling Into one of pure and unre
lieved sectionalism! This is a view which
we commend to our reconstructionists. if a
new organization is formed on the basis of
either of these, the country would be left
precisely in the same condition. If a new
party is constructed, it must eteer clear of
black republicanism and radical democracy
alike, else it will lose its nationality, and be
come at once an ally in the work of disrup
tion of the Union. In thus steering clear, it
will by necessity occupy the present and past
truly national and conservative position of
the American party. To our mind it is clear
that the ultimate return of concord to this
government on these sectional questions, de
pends upon the triumph of American princi
ples. And we commend this view also to our
friends of the reconstruction school.

of Memphis, offered resolutions, 1st, calling
a meeting of the Directors, requiring them to

soliciting the assent of the bcncGciuries there

resolutions were proposed. Ultimately a res
olution was adopted for the appointment of a
Committee to confer with the creditors, and
sec what arrangement can be made with
them, for the preservation of the rights of the
present stockholders in the road, in connec
tion with which Mr. Uptom intimated that a
proposition .that the amount due the creditors
should be entered as cash in the stock, and
that the amount subscribed by stockholders
here should be entered as cash to the same
amount, and the undertaking continued as by
a new Company, was far advanced towards
consummation, and would very probably be

The Cincinnati Commercial has the following
in regard to the reelection of ''Little Dug' :
The fight in Illinois the question being

to private life waxes warm. So soon as
Congress adjourns. Little Dug will muke his
appearance among the Suckers, and the fur
will fly on all sides. There is a strong proba
bility that he will sweep the Slate. The Re
publican aspirants for his seat are Arram Lin
coln and Loso Joutf Wextwoktu. That
which is likely to defeat the Republican parti
sans is the coalition' between them and the
Lecompton office holders. The people will
have none of that. The game of the Admin
istration is to strike down Douglas at any
cost. As there is no hope of electing a liueh
aneer to the Senate, tbe patronage of the
Administration is being made operative in the
assistance of Lincoln or Wentworth. This
will not win."
9" Southern Americans who, instead of
eo labelling ai'h -rt nee to the priLCiples cf their
party, are trying to get up a new party on the
Lecompton issue, most sorely feel the con
tempt with which they are treated by some of
the black republican Journals. We must give
the readers of the Patriot an lustanee of the
way they do It. A few days ago, the Cincio

of a State Convention, by the Republican

might he injudiciaus, and advised "co-tf pcra-

To Vie Editor qf Vie Union Se American: '
v I notice an editorial in your Sunday morn
ing's issue an account of the condition
bf the Exchange Bank, and quoting two
sections of tbe act of 1856. - You then
say "the spirit and intent of these laws have
not been observed by the bank of Tennessee
or the recent Comptroller.' -I desire to stale
that the charter of the Bank only authorizes
the deposit of money In the Bank, which is
always used by tbe Bank and for which it is
liable on demand. Tbe Directors very early
after Its organization adopted, however, the
following resolution : ihe Bank shall "recent
fecial depooit of Bank note, uncoined gold, bar
of tilver, wrought plate and oilier valuable article of
mall bulk for ofe keeping at Vie ruk of Vie de
pofitar,,t . , . .
Under this regulation the Bank has been in
the habit of receiving xreand trunk and
packaged of various kinds, generally under
seal or lock and key and keeping them in tbe
vaults of the Bank'for the accommodation of
the owner, and without compensation the
Bank officers generally Ignorant of the con
tents, and baring no control over them, ex
cept to return them as delivered to the owner.
Before the passage of the act of 1856, the
former Comptroller, believing the vault of the
Bank safer than his office, deposited in the
vault the Bonds of the State belonging to the
Free Banks and constantly came to the Bank,
took possession of the bonds, cut off Coupons
and delivered them to the parties entitled;
this practice has ?ecn continued ever since.
The Bonds have been deposited by the Comp
troller in tin boxes under lock and key and
kept in the vault, and when the Comptroller
came or his deputy with the keys they were
permitted to open tbe boxes, take out Bonds
or Coupons, and no account was ever taken
by the Bank. I regarded them as rpecial de
part over which the officers of the Bank had
no control whatever, except to redeliver the
boxes when called for.
Upon tbe passage of the act of 1856 di
recting that "-the Bond required to be deposited
uith the Comptroller" should be "placed on
deposit in tbe Bank of Tennessee subject to
the order of the Comptroller only, for the
purpose of carrying into effect this act and
the one this is intended to amend." I regard
ed in no other light than compelling by law
the then Comptroller to do what his prede
cessor bad done voluntarily. I did not regard
the law as giving the Bank officers any au
thority to supervise the conduct of the Comp
troller, in putting tbe Bonds in bis box, or
taking, them out or cutting off the Coupons,
or in any way deciding for what object or
purpose they were taken by him, or indeed
any authority whatever to prevent him from
doing so. He was a high officer under bond
and security, and it was bis dnty to keep an
account of the Bond.i and Coupons put into
or taken out of the box. In other words, I
regarded the deposit as special, and believed
that the Legislature only intended to author
ize the Comptroller to have the use of the
Bank vault us a. more safe place to keep the
Bonds than in his own vault, which was au
thorized by the 12th section of the same act.
I so expressed myself to the officers of the
Bank at tbe time, and I still entertain the
I may further add that no Bond or Coupon
has ever len taken from any one of the
box-s except by the Comptroller or his deputy

General Smith was a worthy son of Penn

NovemlxT, 1798, so that he was in the 60th

Smith, former cashier of the Bank of Pennsyl

lantly during two campaigns under General
Gaiues. It was here that his military talent
wa brought to the knowledge, of General
T"yl'r, and it was upon his recommendation
that the Governor ot Louisiana gave to him
the command of the Louisiana volunteers for
service in the war with Mexico. He served
under General Taylor in the campaign of the

skill as follows: 7 "

Iandlnl839. He says:
"While in Pleasant Garden we obtained some
money, so that with tbe five dollars we previ
ously bad. amounted to $13 60. When we
got into the stage we did not expect to be able
to ride but a short distance. We rode as far
as Indianapolia, paid our passages, found we
had sufficient means to take our passages for
When we arrived at this place, we found
we had means to take ns to Dayton, to which
place we proceeded and tarried over night,
waited for another line of stages. We expec
ted to stop here and preach nntil-we got
means to pursue our journey. I went to my
trunk to get money to pay my bill, and found
that we had sufficient to pay our passages to
Columbus, to which place we took passage in
the stage and tarried overnight i -
When I paid my bill I found I had sufficient
to pay our passages to Wooster. We tarried
till tbe after part of the day, and then took
passage for Wooster; when we arrived there
I went to my trunk again to get money to
pay the bill, and found sufficient to pay our
passages to Cleveland.
On arriving at Kirtland I had a Tork Phil
ling left, and on looking over our expenses I
found we had paid over $87 out of the $13 50
we had at Pleasant Garden, which is all the
money we had to pay our passages, to my
certain knowledge, to start on. We had
traveled over 400 miles by stage, for which
we paid from 8 to 10 cents per mile, and had
eaten three meals a day, for each of which we
were charged fifty cents, also fifty cents for

of the .Academy f Arts Their
, First meeting;.
The inauguration of the aunual exhibition
of pictures and sculpture, at the Royal Aca
demy of England, was celebrated on the first
of May by the usual anniversary festival.
Sir Charles Eastlake, the President, gave as
the last toast, the health ot Messrs. Dickens
and Thackery, who responded as follows:
Mr. Dickex8 ''Following the - order of
your toast, I have to take the first part in
the. duet to be performed in acknowledg
ment of the compliment you have paid to
literature. In this home of art I feel it to be
too much an interchange of compliments, as
it were, between near relations to enter into
any e.xpressious of our thanks for the honor
you have done us. I feel that it would be
changing the splendid assembly into a sort of
a family party. A laugh. I may, however,
take leave to say that your sister whom I
represent, is strong and healthy a laugh;
she has a very great affection for, an undying
interest in you; and it is always a very great
gratification to her to see herself so well re
membered within these walls, and to know
that she is an honored guest at your hospita
ble board. Cheers and laughter.
Mk. Thackekt. "My Lords, Mr. Chair
man, and Gnilemen, permit me to say that
if it had not been for the direct act of my
friend who has just sat down, I should most
likely never have been included in tbe toast
which you have Ix'en pleased to drink; and I
should bate tried to , not a writ r, but a
painter, or designer of pictures. That was
the object of my early ambition, and I can re-
memoer wnen air. jJicKeus was a very young
man. and had commenced delighting the
world with some charming humorous works
of which I cannot mention the name, 'laugh

came out once a month, a laugh that this
young man wanted an artist to illustrate his
writings, and I recollect walking up to bis
chamber with two or three drawings in my
hand, which, stranjre to say, be did not find
suitable. Laughter. But for that tin fort u
nate blight which came over my artistical
existence, it would have been my pride and
my pleasure to have endeavored one day to
find a place on these Malls for one of my
performances. This disappointment caused
me to direct my attention to a different walk
of art, aud now I can only hope to be 'trans

to my talented friend, Mr. Egg. Hear,

The chairman then left the chair and the
company dispersed themselves through the
ditlerent saloons, lingering till a late hour to
gratny their curiosity in inspecting the col
Singula it Case. A case of crent leeal in
terest was decidi-d by the Imperial Court of
Kouen. In 1816 a married woman, named
r arm, of that city, was persuaded bv a retired
military officer, named Merle, to leave her
husband, a butcher, and live with him at
Ximes. In May, 1819, she gave birth to
boy, and he was registered in tbe name of
Leplanqnois, which was the woman's maiden
name; but though she declared herself the
mother, she did not name the father. Tbe
child, however, having been baptized in the
Protestant church of Nimes, was inscribed on
its registers as the son of Merle and Anne
Leplanqnois. In August, 1828, the woman
died, and Merle, iu announcing, in affecting
terms, Her tientn to nor mother, said he felt
some consolation for her loss in the handsome
child she had borne him. Farin.the woman's
hu-band, on hearing of her death, made in
quiries as to how she bad lived since she had
quitted hirn. and especially as to whether she
had any children by Merle. He was Informed
that she had a son, of whom Merle was the
father, but w ho had been inscribed io the civil
rejrisier without any father's name. Farin
did not think it ncessary to take legal pro-
ceenings ior uixnvowing me paternity or the
ciuiu, ana wius coaiinuea in in ;t -state until
1856, w hen he died. Then his brothers and
sisters, nephews and nieces put in a claim to
his property, he having left no child by bis
w ire; but tue son or .Merle and Madame Farin.
who had gone by the name of Leplanquois,
claimed the whole as rarin s sou aud beir.-
On this tbe nlatives brought an action before
the Civil Tribunal of Rouen to have Leplan
qnois declared an adulterine child, aud they
contended that the preceding facts, which
could not be disputed, demonstrated clearly
that he w as so. Leplanqnois, on his part, re
sponded lv a counter action to have bis legit
imacy declared, and. the legitder of his tiirth
amend.-d. The tribunal, after hearing coun-
for both parti.-, ruled that it i an invariable
Crinciple of law that a hnsband is always to
e presumed to be the father of the children
of his wife; that the. registration without a
father's name of a child borne by a wife does
not do away with the presumption of paterni
ty, and, IaUv, that though t arin knew so far
back as 1823 tht his wife had given birth to
a child he bad not taken in due time the mea
sures prescribed by the Ctnle Napoleon for
having his paternity disavowed, w hich course
of conduct was another presumption that he
was the father. Th- tribunal accordingly re
jected the action or r arm relati vea, declared
that Leplanqnois must be considered Fa tin's
son, ordered the registry of his birth to be
altered to that effect, and declared that he
was entitled to all that person's property. An
appeal having been presented to the Imperial
Court of Rouen by Farin's relative, It was
argued at great length, but the judgment of
the tribunal was couttrmM.

Some years ago their lived in a neighbor
ing county, a family named W . They
were poor, and lived in an humble cottage,
but enjoyed all tbe blessings which naturally
arose from the toil of their hands, never envy
ing or dreaming of the treasures of tbe rich,
until fortune favored them in tbe death of a
relation in Old Virginia, which bronght them
in possession of six or eight negroes. The
question naturally arose, how should they
get them. Oa the strength of the darkies
they were going to get, they bought a wapon
and team, and Btarted the boy's for Old Vir
ginia, to haul "them ar niggers" borne.
They soon returned, and the family gave
the darkies a very hearty reception so much
so that they surrendered their beds and
chairs to them.
The good old lady of the house, whom they
called Miss Betsey, was so delighted with her
good fortune, she remained awake during the
tirst night after the arrival of "them ar nig
gers." At short intervals she would call out
to one of the negroes .
"H-a-n-n-a-h! O, n-a-n-n-a-h!' .
"What you want, Miss Betsey!"
"N-o-t-h-i-n-g, Hannah! I just wanted to
hear you call me Mi Better!''
' A few days after; Hannah was washing at
the spring, when Miss Betsey would go to the
door and call out .

"What you want Miss Betsey?''

cealed behind a tree, on the road over which
Dr. P. had to pass, and sprang out upon him
suddenly and knocked him down. The first
blow rendered him entirely senseless, and be
