SJLMLTEL P. ALLISON, of Davidson..
THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 21, 1853.
, We inform the True Whig that, the federal pop
ulation of Tennessee being 90G.840, and the State
MbriiS entitled to ten representatives in Congress,
the ratio here is 90,084. If wc call the basis 93,
'i20!then'only nine districts could have that -ium-
"4 J berwhile one would have only C5,060t Is this
the True Whig's idea of the basis !
SWA ' r , i t i
. .We said, in our previous article, that the present
Congressional apportionment in this State prac-
tically discards the federal basis givingsome dis
tricts much more than the ratio according to that
- basis and some much less. Wc said that in one
district the .slave population was entirely disregard-'
ed, and in four others nearly so, by this apporiion
' ment. We stated thesa facts to illustrate the
insinceriiy of the whigs in attacking the white
basis resolution of Col. Joiikso.v. Their argument
being that it savors of abolitionism, and is uncoil
, Btitutiotial, net to provide for the ihree-Sftlis slave
representation in the districts where the slaves
are held, we repeat our previous illustration, . so
far as it relates to the first district. That district
is composed as follows :
Here there are two thousand more free persons
.than the ratio. The basis here is the white basit
the slaves being entirely unrepresented. We
charge, then, that, in this instance, 3Jaj. Hekev ac
tually perpetrated the act which Col. Johssoji only
attempted to perpetrate. Will the True Whig con
tend that, because Maj. Henry made this district
for the purpose of giving whiggery power, while
Johkjos made his proposition for the purpose of
giving white men power, Henry's proposition is
less an abolition move than Johnson's 1 Let us hear
from it !
The True Whig says that
"In some districts, tho apportionment will of
course overgo thp ratio, and in others, will not
come up o it. This is unavoidable, in any np-p-irtionmeni
that may be mide for counties can
not hediv ded, and the local wishes of members of
thf Ljrisliiture must be regarded, in the forma
tion ot ecli district, in order to sscure the enact
ment "f the law."
This ex use will not answer for the first district.
Sevier coun'y may be taken from the first district
und atlr.ched to the second, and still the first dis
trict would have more, and the second less, than
the federal ratio.
The Trui Whig also says :
'The Federal population, so far from being 'dis
carded,' was made the basis of calculation for this
as well as for every former Congressional apportion
ment ever enacted for the State."
Oh! no! It could not have been made "the basis
of calculation." A totally different "basis'" was ad
opted. Tho sum, to solve which quires of paper
were figured over by the whig committee, did not
involve tho basis white, black, or mixed at all.
The question to be resolved was, how to get the most
,. . . . ' . , 1T ,
whig districts! No man can tell, from the United
States census, and die census of the voters,-whether
the federal basis or the white basis was adopted
by Maj. Henri". The present apportionment hap
pens to be quite as near tho white basis once pro
posed by CoL JonxsoN as the federal basis. Tt is not
ry near either. It is a basis ofjnxibable whig too
jorities, in making up which Maj. Henry threw out
the slave population or counted it as his great object
could best be accomplished.
Our argument is, that the man wbohas disregard
ed the slave population when his partisan purposes
were to be served, has no right to criticise a propo
sition to disregard it by another.
teT In the lUnnrr of yesterday we find the fol-
lowing statement :
'We are farther requested and authorized to say,
tliat this thing of marking a check 'good,' or au
thorizing the payment of the proceeds of undoubted
Lills before they are actually discounted by the bill
committee, has been frequently douo by Banks,
and that if our neighbor will enquire of the imme
diate predecessor of die present Cashier of tho
Bank of Tennessee, he will be satisfied that, in more
cases than one, the same thing wai done while he
was in the Bank; and nobody, diat we are aware,
ever thought of censuring Aim."
chare inquired of "the immediato predecessor
- of die present Cashier of the Bank of Tennessee,"
and have been informed by him that he never, du
ring his whole connection with llie Hank, endorsed
"good" vpon any man's died;. When he was before
die investigating committee he was asked the ques
tion if ho had ever done this thing during his con
nection with the Bank, and he answered positively
that he never had. Whoever, then, has authorized
the Banna- to make the statement for such it is
intended to be that "this diing of marking a check
'good' " was frequently done, or even in a single in
stance, by the late Cashier of the Bank, has misin
formed that paper, and led it into error. He never
DID BUSINESS IN THAT WAY.
The Banner's attempts to defend the President
and Cashier of the Bank only make their conduct
more glaring and inexcusable. We would advise
' it to drop the subject; or else to get its information
from better sources than it appears to have derived
it from in tliis matter.
We arc curious to see how the Banner will quib
ble out of the asserdon contained in die above par
agraph. We hope, too, that it will find time to re
fer to the matter in something less than two weeks.
Remember, neighbor, the ides of August are close
at hand, and "delays arc dangerous."
The Union and American's specilicadon. that
Major Henry threw into five of the largest slave
holding districts "nearly enough white inhabitants
to be entitled to Representatives without coundng
the slaves at all" doe. not come up to die charge that
thatheViad "discarded the principle" of Federal rep
resentation, kc. To hare discarded the principle, he

True Whig. J
On the contrary, if Maj. Henry threw into one
district free inhabitants enough to be entided to a
representative without counting the slaves, ho dis
carded the principle that the slaves ought to be rep
resentee1 in the districts where diey are he'd. As
there aro but 7C3.1G4 free inhabitants in the Swie,
it would have been an arduous undertaking to have
made ten districts of 90,000 free inhabitants each!

renders this complainton the part of the Trui Whig
more noticeable is the fact that Adams and Gid

Dings represented one of the strongest whig dis

the House of which they were members, Col.
Johksos is abused by another True Whig ! If
ruch is to be the course of our opponents, they
ought to publish a Catalogue of thoso truewhigs
who shall be allowed to speak, so that democrats
may not make mistakes. If the whigs don't want
such men to speak, they should stop sending them
to Congress. It is too bad to expect democrats
to silence them by voting to deprive them of the
liberty of speech after the whigs have elected
But if it was -on error in Col. Johnson to vote
to permit "John Q.uikcy Adans to speak in Con

AMENDMENTS TO T1IESTATE CONSTITUTION.
Columbia, July 18, 1853.
Gentlemen It is very evident that unless the friends
of the proposed amendment to the Constitution "to
elect Judges and Attorney Generals by the people"
awaken from their lethargy and go to work from
this ont, the proposition will fail to carry. The whigs
of. this State, while tacitly assenting, are at heart as
bitterly opposed to those reforms as they are to all
others that bring the government nearer to the peo
ple, and are silently at work every day to defeat its
adoption at the cominpr election. Let the result m
August next sustain or falsify my prediction.
I charge it boldly that the whigs of Maury coun'
ty are working to defeat this reform, as evidenced
by this simple fact The Sheriff of thi3 county
thinking that it would be the most convenient way
of distributing the tickets for these constitutional
amendments and of bringing the matter to the at
tention of the people, proposed to both parties here,
to have his tickets for these amendments, so that
they could be cither used or torn off as the individ
ual might select. To this proposition the democrats
readily assented, but our whig friends refused,
assigning two reasons first that the democrats
would use it as argument to sustain Andrew John
son in his proposed amendments (an excuse with
out sense as you will see;) and, secondly, because
some of the whigs were opposed to the amendments
and unwilling to do any tiling that would seem to
favor the proposition. Gentlemen, you can draw
your own conclusions. The leading men of the
whig party are silently and effectively opposing the
proposition to amend the constitution so as to elect
Judge3 and Attorney uenerals by the people, and
unless the friends of the proposition work efficient
ly in bringing the question to the attention of the
people, they will be caught napping at the polls.
MATTERS ABOUT WASHINGTON.
"Ion" writes the Baltimore Sun that the Wash'
ington Sentinel is to be the title of tho political jour
nal which is to be established there by Mr. Bever
ly Tucker, and the paper is to appear, as we learn,
early in the ensuing autumn.
Mr. Isaac Siieppard, an individual heretofore
unknown to fame, has out-bid the Government and
all private associations, for the purchase of Mount
Vernon. Ue proposes to purchase it, and keep it
for hi own amusement
From another source we learn that the Attor
ney General of tho United States has determined
to take an appeal to the U. 5. Supreme Court from
the decision of the Board of California Land Com
missioners, in the cases of Col. Fremont, of Crux
Cervantes, and of Mr. Redding. These three are
therefore selected for revision. It will make little
difference to die United States, or to individual
claimants which way the decision will go; for the
whole country of California is claimed by the squat
ters. Every foot of land is subject to the claims of
squatters. Upon Col. Fremont's estate there are
only eight thousand squatters' claims. Upon all the

generally, who come here, are of the opinion that
their people will sustain the squatters' rights.

which is sharp pointed. It says Mr. Marshall has
taken the responsibility of interfering in the revo
lution going on in that country. How he could ex
pect to be justified in any interference, wc are at
some loss to comprehend; but that he should have
interfered "on the side of die priest ridden and aris
tocratic party and against the liberals," is wholly
unaccountable, and, as we think, inexcusable. If
the revolutionists are successful, as is altogether
probable, the blunder of Mr. Marshall will neces

tending the examination of some of the classes of
Union University this week, and were much pleas
ed with the manner in which it was conducted.
It was as thorough and searching as the time allot

dence of the proficiency of the students, and die
capacity of the Faculty. We are sadsfied that no
institution in the West is more worthy of the pat
ronage of the community.
Thirteen j'oung gentlemen were admitted to the

speaking of the crops generally, says :
The wheat crop harvest in thit country has been '
brought pretty much to a close, and the result is
as stated last week a full average yield: With
regard to other grains, our latest advices strength
en the opinion previously expressed. Early oats
are unquestionably short in this section, but late
crop3 will yield better. For two weeks past we
have had favorable growing weather, and the
corn is doing well in all sections. With favora
ble weather for maturing, there will undoubtedly
be a large crop. The crop of hay in this section
is not over one-half nn average yield, and the con
sequence is prices are fully one hundred per cent
higher in our market than they were a month ago.
The reports of the tobacco crops are decidedly un
favorable, and they would indicate that the yield
cannot possibly be over one-third of an average ;
but great allowance must be made for "croakers" (

This assemblage, after witnessing tho scene and re

Doubdess many attended, for the purpose of being
enlightened on the various subjects discussed by
the whig candidates for public favor. But die gen

The candidates, it must be borne in mind, are nov

scarcely up to mediocrity for legislators. Yet,
notwithstanding, they made an effort, which effort
for Nashville, the metropolis of Tennessee, must
have been mortifying to those who boast so loudly
of our politicians as debalors. However, lest, we
should be accused of undue severity in our com
ments, we will give the reader the outlines of tho
discussion, in order tliat they may judge.
Mr. Haix first occupied the stind, and professed

to become tedious and acknowledges the right of
Our former Sheriff, Barnes, va3 next in turn,
and although a sensible, practical business man, and
not without the elements of popularity or die ac
complishment of discoursing most excellent music
from the fiddle, togedierwith faculties for dancing
nearly equal to his competitor Clements, we are
constrained to say, what he will admit, diat speak
ing is not his forte. Barnes was defeated before the
whig convention from some unknown cause, yet
ho boldly avows that notwithstanding such rejec
tion he claims and holds the right as a free citizen
to respond as a whig to tho repeated calls of his
fellow-citizens a3 an advocate of the and railroad
tax party; at the same time he avows himself as an
ont and out whig, ready and willing to sustain dieir
principles when not iu conflict with his anti-railroad
notions; also to obey instructions as regards
the liquor law. He is pledged to attend particular
ly to his own individual interest, and in his leisure
moments to those of the "rest of mankind."
Our worthy Mayor, Smith, next held forth. From
the drift of his openiug speech we learned that he
had rather been imposed on when iu tho country.
His competitors had maliciously set afloat the in
sinuation that he was to blame for holding such a
"disreputable office as mayor." This gentleman,
unlike die rest of his competitors, is no novice in
speaking, tact and management, and if he was call
ed haughty in the country, he has informed the
town people of the fact; and not diat alone, but he
is decidedly on Hall's temperance platform
Barnes" anti-tax platform as independent as
Clements, and by far a better whig than the two
combined; and to cap all, is on every inch of the
good old whig platform; consequently there can
not rest a doubt but that being bran fire new and
fresh from the whig convention, Jio is technical!'
speaking the only legal and lawful candidate now
on die track, (Mr. Baker having wididrawn). He
never sought the nomination. It was tendered
to him and under the circumstances he appreciated
it more. Now, we verily believe, that had not
Clements been so large and Barnes so determined,
that tho scathing gi ven them by Smith would have
driven them not only off the track, but through an
augur hole. Barnes, he said, had turned nn apos
tate, recreant to die interests ot the whig party,
which he now saw dist racted, Heeding as it. were
from every pore, covered widi wounds, and j-et af
ter all the bounties die party had bestowed on him
for eight long years, he wa now the heartless one
who wa3 standing over the mangled remains of the
whig party inflicting dee per and deadlier wounds I
(Alas 1 poor Barnes!) Clements, too, he who has
heretofore been a model whig, a delegate to every
whig convention for the county of Davidson since
1840, except the last one the man who was most
bitter in his anathemas against Nance and Cox, the
independent wliig candidates who firmly avowed
that no true whig would so act was desirous of hav
ing them whipped in, (with an article delicacy here
forbids U3 to mention,) now to disregard the whig
convention and become an independent candidate
wa3 outrageous ! (Just here we looked for Clem
ents to faint, but, warrior-like, he stood with his
front to the enemy.) Such, reader, was the bur
then of the regular's song, save in the finish on the
U. S. Constitution and his intentions to keep the
election of Senators from die people and with the
legislature by entering his protest On die constitu
tion he was not only sublime but convincing, es
pecially to thoso who have heretofore heard him ad
vocate a change ol that instrument, in order to rid
it of the veto, "tho one man power," and now
witness his efforts to keep it unchanged, for fear
the people will have too much power.
Clements next mounted the rostrum, and really
looked about as well as though naught had been
said to cut or mar his feelings. Warrior like, he
want to work, thrusting right and left, and by
chance made some telling wounds. Admitting
that he was a member of the conventions as charg
ed, he yet wished it distinctly understood that
he never submitted his claims as Barnes before
them. Had he so done, he would have acquiesced.
He never, like Barnes, wrote letters, as letters and
papers were dangerous things. As for himself,
such was his antipathy to papers, that he would
not even take notes to reply from to his competi
tors. The last papers he had were two execu
tions which he kept in his hat, and in order to get
rid of them he threw off the costs on the principal
being paid. He was a true blue whig an inde
pendent whig, he came before the people in Feb
ruary, the convention met in May. He was out
first, would be out until August, when it was ad
mitted by all ho would be one of litem. He said that
when in convention he never was known to nomin
ate any candidate who took water ! More than
that, he was a genuine whig, was himself a war
rior ! One of the leading principles of whiggery
was to patronize the soldier ; for example, look at
Harrison in '40, Taylor in '48, Scott in '52, and
then at him Bee, in '53 ! None of his comneti-
tors, like him, were warriors. He went to Mexico
in early days for bounties offered him, left his own
native soil, and, true to his birthplace, sustained a
name for Tennessee ! He, with Sam. Houston,
who was once President and twice a Senator, with
800 others, fought and conquered 1500 Mexicans,
killed and captured all save five, three of whom
were wounded ; and best of all, secured Santa
Anna bodiaciously, good leg, stump and all ; when
Polk, Taylor, Scott, Worth, Wool, Quit
mam, and a host of others only captured Santa
j Anna's wooden leg. " Fellow-citizens: if this is
not principles enough to make mc one of them, I
pity the chances of the rest, particularly as I am
i for all the measures the rest claim to be."
Singleton ! the veritable Mose,next apologized
for not entering into a lengthy discussion on ac
count of Reid, his competitor, being sick,- and
observed, if sick now, by August next he would
be worse sick, if not dead. He was against fur
ther railroad taxation, and although the present
crowd appeared to be rather a hard one, he would
do the best he could for the temperance cause ;
would like just a lick at the Judges, &c. by the peo
ple, if it could bo done without altering the con
stitution ; said our Slate debt for railroads was

every cent of oi circulating nledium except our
State Bank that the people were responsible for,
and stood security for : that she was mismanaged,
that her outlays'were greater than her incomes
and wind up she must. That the Bank of Mem
phis once broke and never paid the note holder,
the poor laborer in whose hands it was left. That
now they were again about to establish it, and a
branch in this city ; gain it would go into cotton
speculations ; a nice calculation would be made
by the gentlemen who sat in their parloro and
dressed in fine linens. Again, the poor laborers
would be swindled, when they conclude to shut
down their dead fall. He wanted to and would
protect the laborer as he was one himself. He
was for a division of profits with insurance com
panies in order to give it to tho fire companies.
If losses occurred let the insurance stand it; the
fire companies must not as they labor by day and
by night. Here he refrained for fear he said that
Reid's vote would not be even respectable.
Here the candidates ended, wheu the assembly
called out Messrs. Betts and Pratt. Bktts res
ponded as a national man, as strong as the rock
of " Gibraltar" with much other important matter.
Pratt respdnded, not as one who like the rest did
so for the mighty dollar or dime. But, as he said,
for fan, as he neither sought or asked office. Yet
he had opinions, and as an Americanhis country
men had aright to them. The farmers and me
chanic he believed to be the bone and sinew of
sny country. He believed inn big debt by nation,
State, county, or individually if you could make it,
as it served to bind countries, States, counties and
people together. Circulate the change and all
had a chance. He respectfully differed with the
U. S. Supreme Judges on the liquor law in part.
So far as they went on imported liquors he coin
cided, but on home manufactured articles he was
somewhat whiggish. He believed in protecting
home manufactures of this sort. Let the best be
made that could and then retail at the best advan
tage, so as to insure not only comfort but profit;
this he was sure was constitutional and was our
privilege as freemen. .
ROdSIA AND TURKEY.
The brief dispatches by telegraph give our read
ers but a poor idea of the question likely to involve
Russia and Turkey, and incidentally England and
France, in a war. Russia, as the head of the
Greek Church, claims the right to protect the
communicants of that church within the duminions
of the Sultan of Turkey. This claim involves the
right of the Emperor of Russia to maintain an army
within the Sultan's dominions. The claims is re
sisted by Turkey, backed by England and France.
The following explanation of the state of the
case from the New York Herald, will enable our
readers better to understand the telegraphic dis
patches in our paper yesterday, and may explain
similar dispatches hereafter. The article was
written before the receipt of the Franklin's news:
Latest on the Turkish Question Warlike
Aspect of Affairs. There can he noduubt now
that the Turkish question has come to a crisis
the crisis of peace or war. Count Nessclrode, in
his dictatorial letter to Reschid Pacha, says that
the decisive moment has arrived, and thai the Turk
must sign the Czar's ultimatum, which is his orig
inal demand, or abide the consequences. Ths
Turk had refused, and the Czar, on being informed
of it, is reported as having acted in the true spirit
of a man accustomed to absolute power and re
garding himself as the arbiterof Europe.
The Paris Presse says diet the Emperor had
made a personal declaration to the 'English and
French ambassadors, to the effect "that the de
struction of his fleets should not prevent him from
invading Turkey and obtaining the reparation
which he believed to be his due." This reparation
simply amounts to this: that Nicholas is resolved
to be the sovereign of die communicants of the
Greek Church in the Turkish Empire, at the haz
ard of a war with England, France and Turkey
combined. Tho concession demanded of the Sul
tan he has unquestionably, for sufficient cause.ie
fused, in the teeth of an army scattered along his
northern frontier, of half a million of Russians,
though they may be as fanatical as the ancient
crusaders in support of the sacred Church of which I
theirEmperor is the annointed head. We say the

under the protection ot the bultnn. And this is
tho ground of the refusal of Abdul Sledjid to pur-
cnasea peace on the terms dictated Jrom at. Pe
tersburp. The Emperor Is reputed to be in a condition ot
extraordinary excitement for such a man as Nich
olas, who ordinarily directs the movements of his
ambassadors and his armies with the coolness of
invincible power. And well he may be unduly
agitated; for while his fanatical barbarians expect
a war, and will he disappointed if they are not let
loose upon the march to Stamboul, the Sultan's al
lies of France and England maysug-gest, notonly
the destruction ofthe Russian llceis of the 15 lack
Sea and the adjoinim; waters, hut the possibility
ofthe movement of Louis Napoleon with a French
army across the Rhine, the rising of the Italians,
the Hungarians and the Poles, and the bombard
ment ot St. Petersburg itself by the combined
French and English naval forces. The terrible
work at Navarino, when England was on the ether
side, on the one hand, and the revolutionary move
ments of 1848 on the other, are strongly ougges- j
tive of a combination of movements which might
well perplex the great Napoleon himself were

The representative ofthe Empire and the glorious

clearly impressed with the same ideas of "manifest

in his plans of action, and the same decision and
energy in carrying them out, as the Little Corpo

French fleet ofthe Mediterranean for failing to be
up attheBosphorus in time with ihs British squad
ron plainly foreshadows something of intrepidity
on the part of the French Emperor in case the
Russians cross the Turkish Rubicon.
The latest intelligence, that this had not yet
been done, had given, as it appears, a temporary
advance to the French funds-and, taking the Bourse
as the interpreter of this Turkish question, there
is yet a loophole for a compromise between the
Czar and the Sultan. Renewed efforts on all
sides will doubtless be made to effect it; but, in
the meantime, the quarrel has been pushed to that
extremity in which it is easier to plunge forward
than to recede. The Turks and the Russians are
mutually inflamed to the fighting point, and at
such a crisis, while a single spark may light up all
Europe in a srcneral blaze of war, the arguments
of prudenco and sound discretion are too apt to be j
thrown away on both sides. There may yet be a
pacific settlement or truce on this politico-relig- (
ious issue between the Turk and the Russian; but
it would scarcely be surprising if the next steamer
should bring us tne intelligence ot a general move
ment of the Russian forces across
boundaries. The issues involved comprehend tbe
ultimatum of peace or war for the whole continent
The Declaration of Independence was written
in the parlor on the second floor of the brick house
at the northwest corner of Market and Seventh
streets, Philadelphia. So says Mr. Jefferson, its
immortal author, in a letter ot his lately publis
The house, once occupied by V.'m. Penn, is
standing in Philadelphia.
The Scientific American Btates, that "a thick
iron or copper rod extending above the highest
part of a house, continuous in its connexion, per
fectly insulated, kept separate and distant from
any large metalic body, and terminating in a moist
part of the earth, such as a pool or well, is a per
fect lightning conductor."
