The Woner Qnioo. .
We rcpubliHhed yesterday the Bank propo
sitions, submitted and adopted at a meeting
of leading democrat beld In this city on
Wednesday, the 22nd inst.; and nove propose
very briefly tr review those propositions.
The first "assumes that it would be unwise
policy to recharter any of the existing Banks.
This unquestionably commits the meeting
against continuing any banks now In exist
ence after their present charters expire. But
does it commit the meeting, the committee,
or anybody else against incorporating new
banks? It may hare been so intended, but
we submit that it does not so express. In
this respect it is equivocal, but characteristic.
The second recommends such reforms in
our currency during the existence of the
present banks as will insure a sound circulat
ing medium, convertible at all times into gold
and silver. But bow is this desirable olject
to be accomplished? Is it proposed to charter
new banks with additional restrictions and
guards, or to remodel the charters of our
present banks? There is no man in the State,
it is reasonable to suppose, who is not for a
-sound circulating medium" and would who
not favor measures to "insure'' that admirable
state of things. But the wish is wholly idle
and futile unless there is a way pointed out
for its accomplishment, and that way pursued
with enccess. The dubious outgivings of the
''democratic meeting" which "assembled at
the Capitol" presents no measure, offers no
suggestion, by which we can ascertain how
the desire is to be gratified. To our mind, the
proposition is simply the expression of a
wish that is universal. We are utterly at a
loss to conceive how such practical statesmen
a . the meeting was composed of, and espe-
c'ally such a committee, comprising the two
United States Senators, actual and elect, a
Congressman, and two lawyers of distinguish
ed political information, should have passed
over a subject of such grave importance,
with. ut saying anything to the point. If the
Committee intended to assert a proposition to
which every sane mind instinctively assents,
they have succeeded; but if they meant to
present an issue to anybody, they made a
miserable failure.
The third proposition reiterates the first,
and adds that "such steps should be taken,
consistently with the public interest, as will
.cure the liquidation of the Bank of Tennes
see at tho expiration of its charter." Not
withstanding all that has been said against
the Rank of Tennessee by Governors, ex
Governors. Legislators and newspapers, this
seems to commit the meeting to continue this
institution until its charter expires. We can
readily comprehend how a refusal to rechar
ter the Uuion and Planters' Banks might
render a continuance of the State Bank quite
necessary. The sudden withdrawal ot the
circulation of the" Union and Planters' Banks,
would doubtless have the effect of embarrass
ing the financial operations of the people;
hut if we also withdraw the circulation of the
State Bank, we should have "bard times" in
deed. Such a course, doubtless, the commit
tee thought, would be precipitating the "grad
ual process" theory with too much rapidity.
We are inclined to think so ourselves. But
really does the proposition assume that the
-State Bank shall continue till its charter ex
pires, that is, till the 1st January, 18G8? It
Suva such steps ought to be taken as will
seoui C tlS liquidation at the evptlallon iff Ita
charter; but it does not say in express terms
that it ought not to be done before that time.
Are the people to understand the meeting as
saying that it was opposed to the recharter of
the Union and Planters' Banks, as well as all
others, and that it would sustain the State
Bank till 18U8? Or, are they to understand
that having sustained the first proposition,
they are at liberty to proceed at once to place
the Bank of Tennessee in liquidation, without
regard to the duration of the charter? It is
important that the people should be fully in
formed on this point. If it is understood
that the State Bank is to be continued nine
years longer, a majority of the people might
be opposed to rechartering the Union and
Planters' Banks. But without this condition,
a majoritv might be in favor of the recharter.
Will our neighbors of the Union and American
add another to the many obligations we are
already under to them, by clearing up the
doubts above suggested?
A co-respondent ai-k us if we don't
"think it a little imp'tdent in Andy Johnson
and his Capitol caucus to dictate to the dem
ocratic party a policy relative to our State
currency." We answer, it does smack some
what of "iuipudeuce;" but then is not the
democratic warty a poor old horse, made to
be ridden by the leaders? And, as Andy has
the whip handle, why should he not ride the
"animuZe" as he pleases?
fr This thing of Democracy has Income
a very curious compound. The only uniform
ity of f i ling in the party is ia repaid to the
perpetuation of its power. All particles of
the party contend that it must and shall, now
and forever, rule tbi. country. Concerning
all other things of which men can have div
ersity of opiuiou, the parly is divided aud
discordant. The great principle of Demo
cracy is to rule the country tor the benefit of
the party iu power. The lKniocrats of this
day do not know whether thev ure for a High
Proactive Tariff, a National Bank and Bank

Decision, of the doctrine of Popular or Squat
ter Sovereignty, of Internal improvements,
or of any question, past, present, or looming
in the future, of material importance. They
are doc tr in ally In utter confusion. Their
sole common cement is in a blind aud un
scrupulous devotion to the party, for iu owu

spite of reasou, with all iu infamies on iu

Clarksville Xobacto Market.
from the Jtfftnmia. :.,..
The editor oT the Louisville Journal is
evidently laboring under a serious misappre-
nension ill iexwi fc" iuc oui'jv. up wm.wm
he writes. He speaks of Clarksville, as a
shipping point merely, and concludes that
the Tobacco receivea at our warenousea ia
placed in those warehouses for the purpose
of shipment only. We wish to 'correct this
idea, as it does great injustice to our market.
In the first place, the 13.575 hhds received
at the warehouses here, taking into considera
tion the relative weight of Clarksville and
Louisville hhds. is, in point of quantity,
largely in excess of the whole amount sold
at Louisville. Second The receipts at the
warehouses are not for immediate . shipment,
but for tale at Intpection here, not one hhd. in
five hundred leaves our warehouses until
after it has been sold at Inspection sales. It
is purchased at these sales of the Planter, by
the regular operators and speculators, and
shipped on their own account, and none it ever
re-iold in tlii market.
The 5.000 hhds. consumed at the varions
stemmeries, which is in addition to the 13.575
hhds. received at the warehouses, is of course, ,
purcbaw-d loose by the (stemmers of the
Planters. stemmed and packed in the hhds.
by the sternmer, and shipped to England and
other foreign markets. The "fact that so much
Tobaco is received" here, does "make
Clarksville the big Tobacco mtrktl contended
To simpify the facts we state thcra thus:
About double the numlsT of pounds of To
bacco received at Louisville in the season are
received here, and the value of the Tobacco
told in this rnarkat is more than double the
value of the Tobacco sold in Louisville. By
the season we mean, a year lrom September
first to September first.
The Journal is very tender footed about
coming down to weights and prices. The
editor seems to be aware that an approxima
tion to actual results would be damaging to
Louisville pretentions in a contrast with
Clarksville, as a market, and he very pru
dently nviods particulars.
As we bae remarked, a hogHhead once
sold here is never re"-soll, never goes upon
the Inspection a 6econd time. In Louisville,
as we are informed, hogshead will travel
from hand to band, each man making his fifty
cents or a dollar upon the speculation, until
some man who has the ability to wait for
returns, ships it and it reaches a foreign
market. Aud all tf these re-sales are set
down in the annual statement, as so many
different hhds. sold. The pretentions of
Louisville in this connection, are supremely
ridiculous and absurd.
Xlie .Atlantic Plateau.
Jfi!S.SKrt. Editoks. I cannot agree with
Professor Maury that there is a plateau in
the Northern Atlantic Ocean. Admitting,
however, the fact and that the bottom of the
ocean is composed of "mites of little shells,"
as shown by the microscopic investigations
of that charming man of science, Professor
Bay ley, we sliail find that the plateau Las no
firmness; and that, though there are no
currents, and these little shells lie "in cold
obstruction," o cannon ball, an iron cable or
anything specifically heavier than the shells,
has a constantly descending motion amongst
tliepe immovable mites of little shells which
are floated by the water filling their inter
stices. Now, the Atlantic Cable, lying along
this plateau, is gradually eiuking into the
mass, and will continue to sii.k, unless
previously broken by its own immense weight
until it assumes the catenarian curve th-j
curve of greatest tension of a chain or cord
suspended between two points. This tension
hits not yet probably taken place. But a
very great tenuity of the copper wire has
resulted from the strvtching of the twisted
iron wire, and, (inally. the cable ninst part,
unless, happily, it finds something more solid
below to rest upon bet-ides the mites of little
Do Santy says the cable has not parted.
We suppose not; but as its tenuity increases
the power of the electric current is abated.
Eighteen hundred miles of the cable weigh
at least six thousand tons, and the gradual
subsidence of this enormous weight amongst
the mites of little shells, on a line of sixteen
hundred miles, has produced great exility,
and will finally le the cause of rupture.
Springfield, ( vfass.) Sept. 12, 1858.
P. S. It is stated in the English papers,
I, think that communications through the
cable are more distinct and frequent going
east than they are going west. If this be
true, may not the cause be found in the
magnetic variation, which is eastwardly?

Tbe Epidemic.
We are again disappointed in the weekly
mortuary returns, having anticipated a decid
ed decrease in the number of deaths by yellow
fever last week. It will be seen from our re
port that the mortality is very nearly equal
to that of the week before. Nevertheless,
there is a decrease, not very marked, it is
true, but still enough to show that the disease
has at last attained its in;wimuin, and suffi
ciently encouraging in view of the fact that
it is the first week which has e.vhibited any
decline in yellow fever mortality since the
appearance of the epidemic. We are, there
fore, led to entertain sanguiue hopes that the
slight improvement now manifested will soon
lieconie decided and progressive, and that a
few weeks, at farthest, will relieve us of the
presence of the yellow fiend, whose uuwel
come visit has brought disease, and death, and
grief to so many hearthstones.

But I am wandering sadlv. Who cares
what an elderly man feels or don't feel 7 How
my neighbor Patton would langh and shake '
bis jolly sides if he guessed that old Fred Lei
cester was growing sentimental ! I must tell
my story without these digressions.
Did not Frederics see at once that I was
madly in love with her? She said not, after
ward. She was not vain; she underrated her
own attractions ; she only thought me kind
and sympathizing.
- She did not speak any more of herself
at that moment. It was late. We returned
to the house. To-morrow," she said, "I will
tell you something about your friend about
this forlorn creature whom you have so ge
nerously borne with. I am not " "Mrs.
Ashton met us at this moment, and chided me
for keeping Miss Rawdon so long in the even
ing dew.
I thought Frederica looked brighter during
this evening. I supposed others would no
tice it, but they did not. She seated herself
with a book, near the sofa table, read till ten
o'clokcand then slipped off to her own room.
What dreams I had that night ! How little
they foretold what the morrow would reveal I
Well the moment came. We were 6'itting
alone, as we frequently did, in the bay-wind
ow of the drawing-room. The Venetian
blinds were closed, the light was soft and sub
dued, the perfume from each flower which
grew in the garden beneath stole gently in
upon us. The air was languid and yet cool.
A distant voice every now and then reached
us; the billiord room was the attraction to
dav, and we were safe from interruption.
Each circumstance is impressed distinctly on
my memory. I see her now as she sat in the
ereat chair, with her old, yet perfectly neat
dress, her hands folded above her head, her
eves cast down. I had long ceased to tnmK
her plain: I w ondered how I had ever done
so. How could any one be plain over whose
face every emotion traced itself in light or
shadow ? But, after all, I contuse my impres
sions then with my impressions later; in iact,
I w rite verv badiv. I have half a mind to
pause here shall" I ? No; as well go on.
I fpoke first. I reminded her of her pro
mise the night before. She sighed, and told
me her story with little prelude and in the
fewest words. I can tell it I can never tell
how icily, how heavily it fell on my heart.
She was not Miss Rawdon, she was not nam
ed Frederica. She bad invented tbe name.
She was a widow. Florence Raymond. The
only daughter, only child, of a rich and tyr
aniiieal father, the largest nlanter in the
Southern country (I had often heard of him,)
and the most violent and obstinate of men.
She married for love at sixteen, married most
uuhani.ilv. led a dreadful life: liaymoud died
and left her once more dependent upon her
father, at the acre of twenty-two. Since then
three years had passed. Eigbteeu months
back she met with one whom it was plain to
see that she adored. I would have needed
only to hear her toue, without catching her
words, to know that he was her earthly wot
Very casually she mentioned him; w ith a ris
ing blush arid vailed lids. "My father at first
approved,'' she said, "ot our acquaintance;
we were betrothed with lus consent; out
have a a couslu, my father's nephew, who is a
wretch, a miserable creature, whom 1 nave
destested since I was in my cradle. He hates
me too; but he lcves my fortune. Disappoint
ed by my first marriage, he counted upon
making his way now. Again baffled, he crept
to my father with lies, only too well calculat
ed to inflame aud ang'T a person easily pre
judiced. You can guess the rest. I was to
have been married on that very evening, ten
dans ago, which you asked me last night if I
remembered, instead of w hich. I was flying
like a culprit from my home, owing to the
kindness of a stranger my escape from perse
cution or a marriage with a man my very
soul abhors. Yes, my father required that I
shouid give my hand to his nephew; he ac
tually thought desired that I should ex
change a husband as quietly as one does a
chair or a servant, w ho happens not to 6uit
you or your friends !"
'And where was ?'' I asked, forcing my
parched tongue to speak, when she paused,
iudignaut and overcome.
"What fie f Alfred ?" and she colored crim
son as she spoke his name for the first time.
"What could he do? He is as poor as I am,
in reality, lie can not . Would it be right
for him to put an eternal barrier between my
father and myself?"'
My lip curled, perhaps involuntarily.
"Dou't blame him !" she cried; "I convey
a wrong impression if you consider him mer
cenary. Would I not. probably, in future
years, think him selfishly imprudent to have
deprived me of my inheritance for his sake?"
These words were not hers; she had heard
them before, aud repeated them like a lesson.
"My father is as stern aud inflexible as be is
hasty. His favorite sister, whose life he hail
saved, whom be worshiped, displeased him by
her marriage, and he allowed her to die in
poverty and unforgiven. Mr. Ashton advis
ed too that we should wait, that we. should
hope; he rescued me from my father's anger
and his fierce determination, and sent me
quietly here. I w as going mad among them
"At least, you had the comfort of knowing
yourself beloved; of feeling that, although
apart, he would be faithful and true to you.
There is consolation in that," I said slowly.
She turned upon me, tears in her eyes.
"Yes," she said, simply, but with effort, and
sigheil as if she felt great comfort indeed.
"He will come with Mr. Ashton to visit
you perhaps?" I pursued. "There will be no
great danger or trouble in such a step."
"You tease me," Florence said; for now I
shall call her by her true name.
"I don't like your tone you mean more
and some thing besides what you express. You
are unkind. -What a child I ami" she inter
rupted herself "A widow, twenty-five years
old. and as full of sickly sentiment as a girl
of fifteen! You must forgive me. I cannot
tell why I have taken the liberty of confiding
in you; forget, if you can, all that I have
said. I am lehaviug like a heroine of ro
mance. Look upon me as a prosaic reality,
and pardon my forwardness and want of del
icacy. I am amaz d at myself as much as
you must be at me."
She rose and bowed. I caught her hand.
"Sit down pray sit down again," I plead
ed. "Indeed you w rong me, you misunder
stand me. Can you suppose me insensible
to the trust, the honor you have shown
I spoke with warmth and sincerity. I re
assured her. We talked on for long hours. I
wanted to Ik? convinced of what I susected.
Not from idle curiosity, but from the strong,
the intense desire to know if her lover was
really truu to her, or if, in this time of trial
and dismay, he had abandoned her because
the fortune was insecure.
She defended him aud herself bravely;
pride and love were both in arms; woman's
vanity and passionate devotion helped her
long to keep her secret, but I held it at last.
This bad been the crowning drop in her cup
of bitterness. Her father's unfounded wrath
against her lover, his anger with herself, his
threaU of forcing her to marry, bis violence,
her cousin's hateful attentions all, all had
Urn borne, uot meekly for one could easily
see Florence was no creature of angelic tem
perament but these could le borne aud they
were, till he, the loved one, the adored of her
heart, SH)ke to her of a necessity for separa
tion. He loved her lie would never, could
never love again but fate divided them, lie
was poor, had no profession, lazy (she ac
knowledged), a spoiled child, used to luxury
w hat could they do, if they did marry?
'And then," she sighed, "my temper is so
uueven. 1 am naturally so rebellious.
He has bad such trouble with me, poor fel
low 1"
"Ah! be is very amiable?" I suggested.
She laughed merrily. It was the first laugb
I ever heard from her lips a lingering,
musical, merry laugh. She stopped, as if
shocked at herself, but also as if she could
Uot have helped it. "Amiable! I dou't
think he could spell the word! He could not,
I verily believe, get as near to the thiug as
I shook my bead doul t'ugly.
"I don't care lo Lave him amiable: be suits
me an he is."
She would say no more. I prudently stop

- Her eyes fixed themselves gravely, sadly.
inquiringly, upon my eager ,. flushed, excited
face. I was cold and hot all at once. :
"Are you in earnest?" she asked, at last.
Heaven knows what I answered what I
She was not angry, but she grew very pale,
and her words were cold yet kind. She told
me how much she had trusted me, how much
she had relied upon my friendship. "This
must end now. I must give up an intercourse

"Yes," she continued, answering my eyes,
for my tongue said nothing. "Yes. To

men often resists the passion she feels; seldom
the passion she inspires.' There is something
very sweet, very powerful, in the conviction
that one is seriously loved. Spoken or un
spoken it carries its way. I wll uot expose
myself to any such formidable enemy. As usual,
I am candid. I do not love you, but I do be
lieve that you love me. 1 am very, very
much grieved that it should be so. Is it my
fault? is it yours? lou wer warned, you
were armed against such a folly. I have one

"Never. You are my first love you shall
be my last."
She smiled.
"You do uot believe me?"
"All men say thi to every woman. Nearly
every woman says it to any man whom she
loves. It is considered a necessary fiction."
I buried my head in my btuids; I did not
care to argue the point.
She withdrew my hands gently from my
face. .
'Pray don't, I said; "for I did not choose
that even she should see the tears thatdimmed

reason told me that I was destined to disap
pointment; happy, because hope never quite
dies so long as there is life and lite for me
was in her presence, the silence of her lover,
the faintest gesture of her white hand, our
separation from every one about ns, the curve
of her red lip, the gleam of her dark eye, the
low, sweet, mournful cadence of her expres
sive voice. I slumbered and floated along.
Time enough to awaken w hen some change
or accident should arouse me. I just held
on to the passing momenta and never looked
How kind she was how noble how true!
After urging me to go, to leave Ashton, and
finding me determined to stay, she seemed to
adopt my own ideas, aud to let things take
their natural course.
"You are olstinate," she said, "and I am
weak. Listen to wisdom you will not; pru
dence you scorn. I can not go, and I have
not the courage, the energy to avoid you. On
your own head le the consequences;" and she
began to talk of literature, music, any thing.
Well, the end was near at hand; it came.
I had noticed a growing impatience iu my
idol, a restlessness of manner, a petulance,
which she instantly repented and repeated.
She would look earnestly at me. and then
impatieutly withdraw her gaze. She did not
speak crossly to me, but her thoughts were
hard, sneering, bitter, and so expressed them
selves of her own self and of others. At
length one eveniug, aain we sat upon that
rustic bench overlooking the lazily flowing
river, and Florence's dark eyes watched the
setting sun. as like a ball of fiercely heated
iron, he dropped behind the trees.
The dewy shades of night softly crept down
and spread around us: what possessed me I
do not know; but I felt that a crisis was nt
hand, and something forced me to speak once
more of the love which was, I saw, filling my
very existence. I poured out burning words
of passionate affection I called her cold,
cruel; I accused her of trifling with me. I
sneered at her callousness. Heaven knows
what follies I uttered. I was fierce and
bitter. Through it all she never moved nor
spoke. At length I paused, and then her
low, sweet voice broke upon the silence
which followed, like a strain of angelic
melody after a crash of noise and confusion.
"I thank you," she said, "for arousing me
jnst as I was about to place my feet upon the
verge of a precipice. I am still stinnd by
the sense of the danger I have escaped, and
am equally divided between gratitude to you
for doing me this service and terror at my
own imprudence. Do you understand me?
I can express myself very freely now, for I
am safe. Have you been so blind as not to
have perceived that during the past day or
two a change had come over me? Do you
remember what I said to you when first yon
declared your love? -1 feared for us both:
however vaguely for myself, still an instinct
bade me be wise and avoid you. I neglected
the warning and you, insensibly, grew upon
me each moment." I would have seized her
band she resolutely withdrew it: my blood
danced and bubbled in my veins she went
on, calmly, and each word she uttered fell in
measured uccents, without a shade of emo
tion. "I began to draw comparisons letweenyon
and same one. He lost by the contrast, and
you gained. Your unselfish, unexacting,
eager, and respectful devotion, the sympathy
you felt, the evident determination which you
showed to convince me ot your love, by re
specting my position and leaving to time to
work a change in my feelings, if change
there ever would le, gave me so much
pleasure, toucln-d me so fatally, that my
mind has been a chaos of remorse, happines,
doubt, determination. I could no more
unravel it this tangled skein of fifty oppo
site feelings thau I could make that sun
pause in its dow nward course. Your hand
has saved me the trouble. What ! yon accuse
me of a want of faith in you. because I do
not lielieve your love eternal after a three
weeks' acquaintance! You call me callous,
because I did not, at yom first word, throw
myself into your arms! You consider me
heartless, because I cling to a love which
does not date from yesterday! I am calculat
ing, because I have been deceived, and fear
to be so again; and, last of all worst of all
I have trifled with your affection-coquetted
with you ! I" and now ber words came
fast and indignantly "I, who bared my
inmost feelings to you, a stranger; who
accepted you as my friend on the faith of
your honest eyes, aud your own wishes

Caroline Ashton. who. In pur few conversa

and your inordinate love or conquest: Airs.

specks upou your excellence. Regardless f
them, I cose to judge for myst-lf, and this is
my rewaij. Hush ! not a word."
But I would speak. I would uot be silent I
implored her forgiveness.
"I forgive you," she said; "I freely forgive

Am I disengaged from ties that, but for ac

"Do I know myself? Do yon know your

Should one trust to such basty passion as now
actuates us? Had we not better test our
selves by a better knowledge of each other,
: "Time!" I repeated, scornfully. "Is time
the only test of love?"
"In our case it would be very well to try
it" - - .
"And bow long will this test endure?"
"Can I tell? It ia uo Ught thing, Fred"
and her voice seemed to caress my name as
she uttered it; "it is no light thing to love as
I have loved. My love has cost me too much
to be lightly given up or lightly considered.
It has been to m the source of more tears
than smiles; and perhaps that is why it has
been, and is, so mighty. Your tenderness
has refreshed me like a spring in the desert;
your very look of admiration when I Fpeak,
or when your eye catches mine; the consci
ousness that, do w hat I will, you find me
charming, is very delightful to one accustom
to meet with reproof oftener than praise
averted looks more than lingering glances.
Yet, can I forget that time when his gaze
dwelt as fondly upon my face, and his voice
spoke the devotion he felt? You do not yet
see my faults he does. Perhaps that is the
only difference between you."
"You can not expect me to listen to this."
"Hear me to the end. He has so long
ruled my thoughts, my actions, my hearts
what if his dominion be as strong as ever?
Suppose what I feel for you is a mere ephem
eral fancy suppose I mistake gratitude
for your sympathy, pleasure in your society,
r.st after much weariness, for love, and,
twice perjured, awake to a morbid regret, to
an undying remorse? I am pledged I am
bound. He may make me unhappy; but till
he releases me I am his, and can not with
honor break my bonds."
Silently I dropped her hand from my
clasp; but she took mine and pressed it
warmly, and then hesitatingly carried it to
h.;r lips, and a tear fell upon it as it rested
there. I wish she or I bad died just then!
An approaching step startled us. It was a
servant breathlessly arriving, and the bearer
of a request from his mi.-tress that Miss
Rawdon would come in as quickly as pos
sible. Any thing the matter?" I asked, while a
vague foreboding of evil instinctively pos
sessed ra,
-His master would bo here presently," the
man said; aud "a woman had come with
trunks for Miss Rawdon."
