- Telegraphic despatches received' la this
city from Chattanooga Monday night, an
nounced the election of CoL W. IL Tibbs to
the Senate by Jive majority. The returns of
the district bad been compared at Harrison,
we learn from a letter received yesterday by
the Central Committee from a gentleman in
Chattanooga, and, with CoL Mtxm'a consent,

Totea. He lelt for home with the understand
ing that he was elected. Col. Mlv.ms re
mained on the ground. A change was made
in the returns, in bis favor, and he was given
the certificate ot election. We don't like the
appearance of this thing. It looks like a petty
trick bad been played npon the Opposition
candidate to secure a majority in the Senate
lor the democracy." We do not desire to-day
to comment further upon it ; but'call for full
information on the subject.
The -Ninth District. We give In our
columns the complete vote of the 9 th District.
It is correct. Etheridge's majority isjjteen,
' enough fur all political purposes.
yf Our democratic friend of the Murfrees
boro News need not give himself any farther
uneasiness about the political status of Gen.
3x3. U. Quables. Every effort was made
during the canvass to bring to bear upon him
the prejudices and hate of both democrats and
whigs, for the purpose of wreaking vengeance
upon him, but without avail. He has been
triumphantly elected, and in the next Con
gress will be a thorn in the side of the Demo
cracy. The Aw can find enough to do, if it
will try ' and administer consolation to the
sick and wounded, and prepare to bury the
dead, of its party. The late contest has left
democracy with lull hospital?, and fields
strewn thick with dead.

- The democracy have carried both branches
of the Legislature. The Louisville Journal,
of Saturday, publishes the returns from a
given number of counties, and says:
The majority of Magoffin iu the above
counties is 4729. The same counties gave
Revill 7081 mnjotity. The counties yet to be
heard from gave Kevil I b'044 majority, not
counting Letcher and McLean, which were
; The contest for Congressmen has resulted
in a drawn battle, as follows:
First District Henry C. Burnett, Dem.
Secand District Samuel O. Peyton, Dem
Third District Frauds M. Uristow, Opi.
Fourth Districts-William C. Anderson, Opp,

Sixth District Green Adam. Ojp.
Seventh District Robert Mallory, Opp.
Eighth District To be contested.
Niuth District Laban T. Moore, Opp.
Tenth District Johu W. Stevenson, Dem.
Each party has five. The Ashland District,
carried by fraud, is to bo contested; and we
trust may be saved to the Opposition. In
regard to the 4ib district, which was report
ed tied, the Journal says
We have Heretofore given tue oincial re
turns from the various counties of the dis
trict except Wayne, which was reported in
different ways. We now have direct infor
mation that the official vote of Wayne was
proclaimed bo majority for Clmsniao, which
elects Anderson by two majority. The other
counties are, we thiuk, correctly reported.

The returns from North Carolina received

Gilmer in the Fiftu by 2,000 majority; Leach,

Kentucky) has au important bearing on the
next Presidential el-.-ctiou in case it goes to
The demand for the enactment of laws,
by Congress, for the protection of slavery in
the Territories, originated with Southern
Democrats. As it is impossible to get enough
votes amongst the members from the free
States, with the aid of Southern delegations,
to carry such laws through Congress, it may
well be asked "Of what use is the demaud ?
What good end is to be subserved by it?" It
would seem that the movement was con
ceived in sheer recklessness; or in a deliber
ate attempt to add another to the many
means of agitating slavery issues with a
view to widen the breach between the North
and the South. We were sorry to sea the
Opposition in Kentucky adopt the doctrine,
and are not surprised that it resulted dis
astrously to their worthy and able candidates
for State officers. To the conservative
anion men of the State, who deprecate
political issues fraught with evil, the intro
duction of the demand for protection must
have been a source of deep and profound re
gret and annoyance. It bus been of serious
injury to the party. We trust, however, that
the injury is not irreparable; and that the
lesaon may not be without profit. We have
been quite as much paiued, too, by the
course which was adopned by the Opposi
tion to the democracy in portions of Alabama,
where they had tickets of their own. It ap
peared to Im tbir desire to '-out Herod
Herod" to render themselves more ultra
upon questiona conuected with Southern
Rights than even the State Rights 'Democra
cy claim to be. We do not see that this
policy baa been of an advantage to them.
On the contrary, it appears to have strength
ened the regular democracy.' Take for in
stance the Montgomery district where the
Opposition ran for Congress Tuw. J. Jiook,
a former old line conservative Whig, but who
wat beaten. Upon this result the Mobile Ad
vertistr comments as follows:
Had Mr. Jadjre conducted the canvass in
accordance with bis own antecedent; had he
boldly and ably maintained Uio coutitulion
al and conservative principled wlikh he had
so long and consistently advocated, we
honestly believe that thu rtult would have
been different. Instead of beio' dt foaled in
almost every county iu the District, be
would have carried the old Whlfj stroug
holds with a rush and been now representa
tive elected to the next Con grot.
But he chose another cuiir?. IU repudi
ated the principles and policy of hi whole
lite, his uewspuper orgau couf.-ea that his
former views were erroueou. profess d re
cantation and repentance, and he and tbey
sped a bowbot beyond the original secestiou
men in ultralsm. The conversion was too
sudden- a good reason for it was not suf
ficiently apparent to satisfy the people, who are
after ail, are more shrewd aud sensible I htm

the late canvass were ro extreme that LIop
ton, a Southern Rights man ot-. the original
panel, seemed conservative in the contrast,
nd we have not a doubt that this change of
front injured tar more than it benefitted him.
We commend the lesson and its moral to the
consideration ot those old Whigs who were
once, or may still be. disposed to make a
similar venture. Better stick to your princi
ples and act consistently even as a matter of
policy, for in the long run such a course pays
much tne best.
i So in both Kentucky and Alabama the Op
position have; learned 1 that nothing is to be
made by a departure from sound conserva
tive principles. l,The Opposition fnGeorg!a,
we see, are fatally bent upon rushing on the
breakers. They are assuming positions which
conflict with the true national conservative
positions heretofore held, and we apprehend
nothing but evil in to grow out of the change.
We commend to them all the platform of the

"The old Atlantic Company is as dead as a
door nail. They cannot procure even one
fourth of the 20,000 required toraise the
shore ends of the cable.' J But ;a pew com
pany has been formed, of which we have al
ready given Eome intimation, under the
name of "The British Transatlantic , Tele
graph Company Limited.! , Viscount Bury
is chairman of the Board of this Company,
and Sir Francis B. Head, formerly Governor
Geperal of Canada, and Coleridge Kennard
(of Haywood &. Kennard, bankers, London,)
are members. We perceive that Mr. Gis
borne, who projected . the cable between
Cape Ann and Nova Scotia, is the chief en
gineer. ' The Company has already closed a
contract with the French Government to con
nect Toulon and Algiers, a distance of 500
miles, by a light cable, manufactured on a
plan which has been tested elsewhere, and
found successful: the depth of water in the
Mediterranean being 1580 fathoms, or nearly
two miles.' This cable is to be laid by Oc
tober 31st, and next season the transatlantic
cable will be undertaken. The feasibility of
that enterprise will thus have ; been fully de
terminedi in the course of the intervening
period, aud the value of the Yarmouth line
will be readily perceived.
The AVioe Letter.
The Richmond Eaqnirer of the 8th says:
AVepee that the iNew ioi k Ueraia is in
great glee aliout a letter alleged to have been
written by Gov. Wise to some unknown cor
respondent, who is said to linve furnished a
copy for private circulation at Albany during
the tatting ot the fatate Coinniitite. Ami the
Herald rubs its hands at the thought that Mr.
Buchanan will chuckle and Mr. Douglas will
'kick up his heels" over it. Well, what is
sport to the boys may be death to the frogs.
We reserve comments for the present upon a
bit of ttxitindrdum about this and a kindred
matter, of which we have the evidence, which
could not uwait development auy where else
better than in New York and Albany, and
' which, if hemp bad its due, ought to make
some heels kick the air. We copy below an
article from the New York Daily Neic, as a
just view of the inattor in any aspect, about
which we are not authorized to speak. We
conceive, with the News, that if this publication
i u not a forgery u ts aomeuutig worse.
How it Came to Light. A telegraph des
patch from Albany (N. Y.) to the Louisville
papers give the following information in
- regard to the publication of the Wise letter :
- Albany, Aug. 8.
It has leaked out here by what means the
famous letter of Gov. V ise came to be pub
Hi-hed. It appears that the -letter was writ
ten to a couiidcntial friend of Gov. Wise, re
siding in New York, that gentleman on a
: recent visit to Albany while in conversation
with some member or the regency, round
those parties hostile to Mr. Wise, on the
crround of bis intimate v relations with
; Fernando Wood and the control the ex-Mayor
. wa supposed to nave over him.
The gi utlemau, who is a highly honorable
man, and perhaps not smart enough for the
intrigues of the regency, incidentally stated
in a spirit friendly to Gov. Wise that he
knew the imputations agains-t him to be uu
. founded, but he would not be credited unless
: he produced the proof, whereupon I am in'
formed he showed the latter to Mr. Cassiday
of the 'Argus, iu strict confidence, who asked
permission to lay it before Dean Kichmond.
This was demurred to, except upon the
solemn assurance that it should not appear
: in print. It is now known that special copies
of it were made. . '
It may seem stranee that the Albany Adas
: and Argus, Mr. Cassiday's paper, should de
cline to publish the letter on the assumption
that it was n forgery, whilu it manifestly was
made public by soihb members or the Albany
regency and probably with the knwledge of
: Mr. Cassiday himself.
The Gi.oiuocs Ninth. We rcjoice.heartily
rejoice, that Mr. Etheridge has has carried the
Ninth district. Every patriot iu Tennessee
will rejoice, for his election puts the seal of
condemnation upon the base slanders of that
pure and noble statesman, John Bill. The
Nation will rejoice, becnusc to her counsels
is restored one of tbe bright particular stars
in tbe galaxy ot brilliant orators, who add
glory and renown to our common country.
The Fall .no n. Itloudlu'a Fourth
Niagara Falls was a swarming Live again
yesterday, tilled and overflowing with the
immense throng of people, collected to wit
ness the fourth repetition of Muns. Blondin'a
daring feat of crossing the chasm upon a
cable stretched between the cliffs. The
crowd gathered was almost, if not quite,
t-qual to tliut assembled on any former occa
sion: and the gathering was warranted, for
the sight which was witnessed surpassed all
the previous exhibitions ot the same charac
ter. From this city we should judge that the
attendance was greater thun at auy time
Ixlore; and from Rochester and other places
in the vicinity, ou both sides of the line, it
could not be much, if any less. All the
seats and stand places within view along
tbe bank in the pleasure grounds upon this
side of the river were crowded, and tbe en
closure upon tbe Canada side was better
filled thau upon any other occasion. -
Mons. Bloudin rode Into the pleasure
grounds on this side about half past 4 o'clock
and started upou his serial journey after a
tew moments of delay in preparation. His
trip across to the Canadian shore was ac
complished quickly, as he proceeded at
a tripping pace most of the distance, aud
only paused a few seconds occasionally to
correct a balance and obtaiu slight rest. All
of his feats he referred fur the return jour
ney. Arrived at tbe Canadian bank, be refreshed
hiinsvifa little, and took a rest ot perhaps fif
teen minutes, when he again su pped upon the
rope sad tripped down tbe sUnt, airy plane;
toward "the land of the free and the aoiut of

performed a number of dariug autica, and
finally stood upright upou bis head, remain

though ludicrous manner that Cau he conceiv
Ilei-uming bis journey, he proceeded but a
little way wheu he agaiu bali.-d aod repeated
his rtornmnci, with the addition of a back

3Iammoth Cave Colossal Cavern A
Pi eve DlacoTery.
Editors Louisville Cockier : In the fall
of 1858, Mr.. L. J. Procter, the proprietor of
the Mammoth Cave, in company with two
assistants, undertook the exploration of a
cave, one entrance to which is situated in
Barren county, a mile and a half from the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad, and ten
miles from the Mammoth Cave. Up to the
time of the explorations made by Mr.l'rocUr,
nothing was known as to the direction, dis
tance or dimensions ot this vast subterranean
region, which I have ventured to name Colos-"
sal Cavern, and which, in extent, grandeur
and sublimity up much exceeds tbe Mammoth
Cave as the latter exceeds any cave hereto
fore discovered. Since the explorations of
Mr. Procter were made, the writer-of this
article has verified that gentleman's observa
tions, and, in order to facilitate tbe descrip
tions of the cave, has' conferred tbe names
mentioned below upon the principal point
of interest. - j i , ' 7 ,
The first mile of the avenue leading from
tbe entrance of Colossal Cavern rans .ia a
north-eastern direction, and varies from twen
ty to sixty feet in widtb, and from ten to
forty in bight. Stalactites and stalagmites of
almost every couceivable form aod great
variety of color are found in this avenue.
This is called Stillo Avenue, from the stalac
titic formations which are foundVjn it.
On leaving Stillo Avenue, an avenue is
entered which is three miles in length, and
which gradually ascends for its entire dis
tance. The walls, floor, and ceiling of this
avenue are lined with alabaster flowers of a
variety of forms and of indescribable beauty,
many of which are over eight inches iu di
ameter. Like the flowers In' Cleveland's
Cabinet in the Mammoth Cave, they are com
posed of the sulphate of lime, and are of a
pure white . color. ' On the floor-of this
avenue, successive crops of stucco flowers
may be observed resting one above another,
which have detached themselves from tbe
walls and ceiling, lrom time to time, by their
own weight. These flowers always form iu
avenues destitute of moisture, and with ex
ceeding slowness. The seasous required fur
the successive growths of subterranean
flowers are not to bejreckoned by months,but
by centuries; for, as can be observed' in the
Mammoth Cave, where gypsum flowers have
beeu detached for a period of fifteen years,
the crystals that compose them are barely
perceptible, emergiug from the parent rock
at the present time. This avenue is styled
the Flora Temple.
Flora Temple communicates with an ave
nue about a half mile in length, which leads
to a cascade and the entrauce of a river.
The river, at the point at which it is
viewed, is seventy-five feet wide, aud gives
an echo louder than that of auy river iu the
Mammoth Cave. There being no boat upon
the river, it has not been explored, although
it bas every appearance of great length. This
body of water is called the Mysteriam.
On the right bank ot the river Mysterium
an avenue arises which contains the most
magnificent collection of stalactites ever dis
covered. This, avenue was explored for a
a distance of three and a half miles without
discovering a terminus. At this point in the
explorations a stalagmite was discovered,
which is a perfect statue of Gen. Washington
in military costume. The stone, ot which
this natural statue is composed, is as white
as statuary marble, and is exceedingly com
pact. Washington avenue is the name con
ferred upon this portion of the Cave.
On returning to the Mysterium, an avenue
may be entered which ruus directly north for
a distance of a quarter of a mile, which
terminates iu a dome, aud which, in size and
general appearance, resembles the mammoth
dome iu the Mammoth Cave. This is called
Proctor's Dome, in honor ot the discoverer,
Mr. L.J. Procter.
From Procter's Dome to the cliffs, on the
banks of Green river, the principal avenue
resembles in size tbe main cave of tbe Mam
mouth Cave. The entrauce to Colossal Cav
ern, on tiie dill's of Greeu river, is one hun
dred and fitly leet above the bed of that
stream, and is eleven miles on a direct liue to
the entrance in Barren county. Tbe Green
river entrance is in Edmoudsou county.. The
avenue which leads from Proctor's Dome to
the Edmoudsou county entrance is named
Green River Avenue. The walls and ceiling
of Green River aveuue, for a distauce of
three miles and a half, are covered with
nodules ot gypsum, which resemble snow
Seven days were occupied in the first ex
plorations of Colossal Cavern by Mr. Procter,
aud the second entrance was discovered ou
the fifth day. which was the first' aud only
time tbe light of the sun was seen during the
Besides the avenues briefly mentioned
seventy-five others, which intersect them,
have been counted, the extent of which is
not kuownj and the aggregate distance
which bus already been explored is not less
than forty miles.
1 hope, at uo distant period, to give a more
detailed aceouut of Colossal Cavern, which
presents such a vast field for eubterreauean
research to those who take an interest in tro

As The Constitution would convey the idea
that Gen. Ca&j's letter, first upon the ex
patriation question asserted no view or opin
ion of the Government, it is proper to state
that thousands of Euch letters have been sent
from the State Department, informing natu
ralized citizens who were coiner abroad f
their liability to perform military duty if
claimed by Governments of countries if
which tbey were natives. No other opinion
was obtained at the Department, nor were
letters of any other description written upon
the subject. Tbe first letter of Geo. Cass
that was published was the slereot rued reulv
of the Department.
