J03IN L. MARLING jk CO. EDITGBS AND VKOPRIET0B3. THURSDAY MORNING, SEPT. 1, 1853. THE NATIVE AMERICANS. AGAINST PRESIDENT . Ve have already noticed (saya the "Washington union) tue recent attack or the native-American faction upon the President; and tracing the jiatu- ' ral affinities, of principle and feeling between the na tive and the abolitionist organisations, we have re garded it as altogether natural that they should find in the President the object of their common hostility. The following remarks of the Boston Post on this subject are well deserving of attention: "There are two element",-' aiys that journal, "in the politico of this country from which Franklin Pierce expected unyielding and unpausing antago nism the elements of modern abolitionism and modern native Americanism. With the liberal and courageous instinct of his nature he had thrown himself into the breach as their foe at an early day. Ke had met these polities! desperadoes, the friends of evil whose mission it is to"foment domesticdis oord, as the surest method of rapid and irremedia ble political overthrow. When natireum, aroused to demoniac fury, 'cried havoc and let slip the dogs of war' in 1844, firing the churches and dwellings of unoffend-'ng Catholics, Fiuxkms Pikrcf, with his accustomed promptitude, and at a public meet iug called at his s igjostioti, at Concord, N. II., proclaimed his liatred of (he baleful and impious heresies from which these accumulated horrors sprung. He was among the foremost to unmask and to denounce abolition, grappling with it at a time when it threatened to overwhelm New Eng land, and finally protecting his own State from the torrent which swept the North like a tempest or pestilence. He struck both in time, and struck home. He entitled himself to their animositv, and he obtained it. At his own home they followed, butfailed to cruslu "When translated to the highest office in the world (heir virulence increased" and although their power, like that of all 'who hate the excellence they cannot reach,' falls far short of their designs, they rail with as much vigor aud. violence as if their words could kill. "The native Americans of Philadelphia, who have been the most violent if not the first worshippers of u.eurceuo! excision .md of proscription, in recent conventions proclaim unalterable hostility to Gene- x imili. e navo read their indictment with some care. Ji is a hkilfiil compound of poisons. It appeals to the prit-Hs and resentments of every faction, and of every cabal. It accepts and en dorses every falsehood .-.gainst the President, every calumny against his nJvisers. every slander against his appointment.". It is especially denunciatory of abolition. It is espially severe upon free soil, and it disposes of the UminNtration with a gravity and assumption of dignity that would be overpowering if it were not ridiculous. "Now, considering that the native Americans are those whom mon honest men would pray Jfor their abuse, and whose creed has always been op posed by the democratic party, the assault of the Philadelphia fanatics is compliment enough. Pray did they vote for Oeneral Pimtcc under a mistake? They could hardly believe him a native American Doubtless many who had been native Americans voted for Gen. Pierce as the best escape they could make from pernicious company. Doubtless many voted for liim because Gen. Scott had grown tired ofhis profitless proffers of fealty to them. But they took Gen. Pinner: with his sentiments proclaimed; and those who voted for him did so while he stood upon a platform which distinctly and positively re pudiated alike themselves and their creed. "It is better, however, that native Americanism should be the mouth-piece of disaffection to the na tional administration; for such an offspring deserves such a paternity. The cause of calumny andshame could becommitted to no better hands. The wea pons in the army of native Anricans, like those wielded by alulition, are defamation, hypocrisy, fraud, and falsehood. Wisely and well was it theny fore to commit to nativeism this work of slander And long may Fkaxkli.v Pierce be worthy of the antagonism of those whose hands are against all other men. and whose cause is the cause of insult and ingratitude to the past, and of proscription and anarchy in the future' PA l-SEf.Y PACKED COTTON. Our attention ha been calied to the following from the Neiv Orleans Commercial BuUttin. We reprint it with the hope that it will cause in creased attention to be paid to the packing of Cot ton this year. The Bulletin very justly remarks, that our planters, as a mass, "will compare favor ably, Tor hciiesi y and intelligence, with any other similar body of people on the face of the earth. but a few inconsiderate or unprincipled individuals have cat suspicion upon the whole class. This should not be, ai.d we hop that tho increased at tention paid to this matter now will have the effect of preventing fraudulent packing in future: Falsely Packed Cotto.v. The fradulent packing of cotton, in Tennessee, ha caused much complaint and considerable loss and inconvenience, besides bunging into disrepute all of the nl.intnr nftW State, who, as a mass, will compare favorably, for honesty and intelligence, with any other similar body of people upon the f.tceoftlie. earth. It is too iJfed'tliat a wholeclass should suffer fo.- the ras cality ol a few unprincipled individuals. They suf fer in two ways; first, in character, and second, in pocket, for the practices to which we have alluded throw discredit upon the whole crop, rendering factors auspicious of Tennessee cotton, for no one doubts that those who have been "burned" once, dread the ' fire" ever afterwards. This should not be. Honest planters owe it to themselves to com bine together to ferret out the dishonest persons who are bringing reproach upon their State and clfiniagiiig the ulue of their property. IAjbaferring lo this important matter, the Memphis TMfysjys: "Of late years, considerable loss has fallen upon ration factors herv, in damages aceni iSg upon bales of cotton sold by them, which in the tiatuls of the manufacturer, were ascertained to be fclsely packed that is to contain cotton of differ ut and inferior qualities, totally unlike the outside f rom which samples for selling are taken. This is a :reioin wrong, ami should not be peqietrated. It t only operates injuriously upon the interest of he fin-tor, but also seriously reflects upon the hon pty of the planter or his ginuer, besides causing femphis cottons of all qualities to be suspected. To hope that all who are interested will see that tjie remedy is applied. The planter owes it to his 'putatioii to correct the evil and hereafter the factor ought to hold the guilty to public scorn." ThepiopIe about Nashville have also suffered from the same reprehensible practices, as will be neeii by the following extract from a letter received by a firm in that city from a neighboring manufac tory: "Enclosed I send you an account made out for the damages sustained on two bales of falsely pack ed cotton, a'jout which I wrote 3-011 some days a jo: ' ' was in the cotton room yesterday when they 1 :V ,5i ir.x rP o 'i.. I mi-vi ui iii.iMjr iiuu me uuii's I'peutii. come oi me t samples I will send down to you so that you can preserve them for future reference. We have ! opened a number of jut such cases, and now have j a cart load of large cotton Hakes like stone, lying noont our premises, taken out or the bales we have opened. It has become an every day business; we loose hundreds of dollars even- year by such and have got rather tired of it.' " OF" The iremphis Eagle and Enquirer of the 27th, says: the man mentioned yesterday as sick with the fever, died yesterday. "The city is per fectly healthy, and there is no apprehensions that wc shall have fever originating here DEcnn.isE or tub Epidemic. We have been in formal that the number of admissions and deaths. in the hopitals, are diminishing daily, n e hope the official reports may prove the correctness of the information. X. O.

We continue our extracts from th'e whig ppers on thi3 subject. The Jjynckburg Pairiot'ln a recent issue, rays: "The destinies of nations depend on the councils nf her rulers, and historv'reeorda rio instance ofa nation's greatness under inexperienced and imbecile- I governors. We want men of ag, experience ana' rnaturejudgment in onr National .Legislature, anu thefhivalric State of Tennessee ought to be ably represented in. Congress. In casting abotlt us to find a personage in whom Tennessee can confide her interests we involuntarily pen the name of Jonit Belt,, as a man suitable in every respect, and as deserving as any statesman we can name. There norf.r Imq hepn a time wuen me unci caw ui whig party so imperiously demanded the re-election of John Bell as now." The Koscrsvillo (East Tennessee) Times says: Pm "N"ncnw. We sincerely hope Col. Thos. A. Nelson will become a candidate before the opprtfach;' iug Legislature tor a seat lathe United btates sen ate made vacant by the expiratfan of tho term of Hod. John Bell. The honor is due the gentleman and ought by all means be conferred on nun. JI he should become a candidate wo believe his elec tion . pure, and we have no doubt but he will he a candidate! because the East Tennessee whigs are for him and he has never yet refused to obey their call, jicreaiiou. We also find a communication, in the Knoxville Register pressing the claims of Horace Mayxarp, Esq., the defeated candidate in the 2d Congression al District, for the vacant seat in the Senate. De feat seems to be a strong qualification, as our whig friends view matters just now. . Chiliiowee, Blount count', ? " East Teiin., August 23, 1853. Messrs. Editors: The inhabitants of Cliilhowee and its vicinity, having felt for some time the ne cessity of a Reading Room and Library being formed at the above place, and the advantage it would confer npon them, solicited Mr. R. Shepherd to-call a public meeting for that object He accor dingly summoned a general meeting, which was held on the 22d inst. After a few preliminary re marks were passed over, and Rob't Jaws, Esq., being called upon to take the Chair, the meeting came to the unanimous opinion that a Reading Room and Library should be rganized at once. A building being kindlylent, b3'Mr. James, for that purpose, it was then proposed and seconded that Rob't James, Esq., be President of the Institution. It was proposed aud seconded, 2d. That the following gentlemen act as officers during the vear: Committee Dr. Ghormelev, Mr. Wright, Jo's Hodgson, Mr. Barker, D. Ghprrneley, Mr. Hopper, Mr. Gardner anil J. Hodgson. Treasurer Mr. Sanderson. Secretary Rob't Shepherd. Librarian Tho's James. 3d. That the committee meet once ill every three months to transact business, and five shall eousti tutc a quorum. 4th. That a public meeting of the ' subscribers shall be held once ever' year to elect officers, and to hear the Secretary and Treasurer's report. 5tlu That two dollars shall be the annual subscrip tion, to be paid in advance. 6th. That the Reading Room and Librarj- shall be closed every evening precisely at 10 o'clock. 7tlu That no paper or periodi.ral shall be taken out of the room. The committee then proceeded to- business, and it was 1. Resolved, Tliat the following papers be taken in during the next yean The' Knoxville Register, Nashville Union fc American, The American States man, Augusta Chronicle, Washington Union, Balti more and Weekly Sun, The Church Journal, N. Y. Illustrated News, and N. Y. Commercial 2d. Resolved, That any member who takes in any of the above papers, shall be received into the Rea ding Room in lieu of subscription, until the time expires to which they have it taken. After thanks were returned to the Ghairnian, the meeting was dissolved. I am, sirs, yours respectfully, Roe't Shepherd, Secretiry. P. S. Any gentleman who has at heart the in terest and welfare of the State of Tennessee, would confer a great favor by sending a donation, how ever small, of Books Arc. to the Secretarv, for the Institution. . " R. S. THE COMING WHIG ISSUES. The Baltimore American of Monday last, as we noted yesterday, told us that by and by the whig party would have some srriaut issues. The New York Tribune of the same day thus intimates what those issue are to be: "The old political platforms having been spit on and kicked to pieces, as they generally deserved, we may now look for the erection of new ones with fresli timber. The following, from an address to the electors of Cuyahoga coimty, Ohio, is a speci men of a sort which seems to be getting fashiona ble: " 'Men of all parties, who desire so to shape their political action as to promote the best interests of the country who are opposed to the extension of slaver)- to the fugitive act of 1S50 who are in fa vor of divorcing the general government from all connexion with slavery, where it can be done con stitutional!)' of the freedom of the national do main to actual settlers in limited quantities, and in State matters all who desire a more upright and economical administration of government the tax ing alike of the property of individuals and corpo rations according lo its real value and who seek the suppression of the evils of intemperance by she enactment of the essential principles of the 'Maine law.' " "There are one or two planks here such as the Maine law which are rather unpleasant to politi cians of the ancient schools, but it looks as though the)' would have to oome to it." By this it would ;ippear that the substance of the platform which tin- whigs are getting ready is to be the renewal of the slavery agitation and the Maine liquor law the remainder of the issues set fbith in the above programme being merely make weights, aud not intended to attract any particular attention. To these may probably be added, as an other whigissue, thatscheme of Internal Improve ments by the federal goeernmcnt which shall be found upon examination to involve the largest de parture from a strict and rightful construction of the constitution, and which shall promise the larg est harvest of financial waste and abuse. Such, wc submit, so far as it has yet been devel oped by the leading whig organs in different sec tions of the couutry, is the show of purposes and principles which the 'whig party is now likely to present, whenever, in the lauguago of the Ameri can, it shall take the field for "serious action" and "extra exertions" against the administrat'on. We ' shall hardly be suspected of judging too favorably the aucient aud obsolete principles and measures of the whig party, as maintained by that party at a time wheu it really claimed that it hail a party creed to maintain. Yet wc are fieo to say, that if any worse platform than the old one of bank, high i tariff, land distribution, A'c., could be devised any 1 upon which the people will surely pronounce more ,' summary aud sweeping condemnation it would ' be this new abolitionist and Iatitudinarian amalgam I which the whig organs seem to be mixing up as a new experiment upon the popular forbearance. t Iltwt. Union, The St. Louis Pot Ornce. We find the fol lowing in the gossip of the Washington Republic of the 23d: Dr. McDowell, a nephew of the wife of Colonel llcuton, has been put upon the track as a fresh teuton candidate for the fct. Louie post oflice. This movement is looked upon as an indication of intention to withdraw Watson, who has heretofore been the Benton favorite. Judge Bowlin supports F, M. Colburn, who. he alleges, is the choice of al most the entire mercantile interest of St Louis. It is thought the Trcsident will decide this bitter con test soon. FfBob Braden, sherifl' of McMinn county, started to Nashville yesterday with a couple of "barnburners," who were elected to the public ser vice at the recent term of our Circuit Court. Bob is au "old hunker" himself, yet a very clever man ; and as it is tho first time that he, or any of his posse-come-and-take-us have been very far from home, we hope our friends at Nashville will look after them aud see that they don't get run over or lost while ranging about the citj. Athens Post. We are proud to learn, sa3's the Macon Tilejraph of Wednesday, that the report circulated some days ago of the death of Gen. Lamar, of Tex as, i not correct. A letter from him has been re ceived in this city, dated on the 3d of August, which is subsequent to the date of the report of his death. OBITUARY KOTICE.. - Departed this life, at Roquefort in France,, on the Cth day of August, 1853, Gjwkce W. Campbell of this pl&e, son of the lata Judge Campbell, after an .illness of several montlis duration. s The deceased" left his home in Nashville for EiiJ rope in the month of Juneof last' 3ear, 'with tho' view of spending a short period in foreign travel. , After visiting London and travelling overEngland, he spent several weeks in Scotland, remaining with, and receiving the hospitalities of some of his family 'relations in the Western Isles, during the greater part of the time. Early in the winter he went to Taris, and remained there nntil the month of Feb ruary of this year. Finding that the climate was actm" unfavorably upon ms general neaitii, anu un expectedly irritating his lungs, he left the French capital in' that month for Italy, travelling by dili gence to Marseilles. The weather was intensely cold, for wore so ilian he expected or was prepared to meet In consequence of its severity and other exposures incident to the journey at that inclement season, he was seized with a violent inflammation of the lungs, terminating in the permanent disease of these organs. After remaining a month or six weeks at Rome under the care of an Italian physi cian, he recovered sufficiently to make a short ex cursion to Naples, and then, at the instance of his medical adviser, he sought some celebrated springs in the Pyrenees with the hope of acquiring strength enough during the summer to enable him to return home. For a time the waters proved beneficial, and it was thought he might cross the ocean with safety. Accordingly, he started for Bordeaux, but died at Roquefort while on his way. He was for tunate in meeting at Rome a young relation, Wil liam Stoddart, also travelling on the continent, who, willi unremitting care and kindness, remained with him to the last. No aid which professional skill could afford, and no sen-ice which watchful affec tion could render, were wanting to assist the efforts of nature; but tho disease baffled the skill of the physician and proved too strong for a naturally vi gorous constitution. It is a source of consolation to his friends, that his bodily sufferings during his illness Avere not great, and that ho retained his wonted composure to the last He was not con fined to his bed nor even to his room up to the day of his death, but dined at the common table, and was able to take moderate exercise. The disease was, however, progressing at his vitals, and his life was at every moment in danger. Death came rather suddenly, but his last moments were peaceful and quiet. The deceased was born at St Petersburglt while his father was Minister of the United States at the Russian court, in the year 1818 or '19, and was, con sequently, in his thirty-fifth year at the time of his death. His father, whose public life forms a part of the history of our State, took great interest in the education and early training of his son, and carefully cultivated the faculties of his mind. He commenced his collegiate course at the University of Nashville, but finished his education at Yale College. He studied the profession of tho law at St Louis, and could he have carried out his original design of practising at the bar, his strong intellect and indefatigable application would doubtless have insured him eminent success. The failing health of his father compelled him, however, to devote his time to the business of a large and complicated es tate and prevented him ever afterwards from pur suing his profession with that exclusive devotion so necessary to success. Patient industry was a part of his nature, a,nd incessant employment was cssen tial to his liappiness. Circumstances prevented the exercise of Ids faculties in tho mode he would have chosen, and deprived him of the regular avocation required by his temperament His last years were spent in fruitless efforts to- satisfy his. restless in tellect and untiring energies by die business of his estate too much to allow him to devote his atten tion to any settled avocation, and yot not enough to supply him with necessary employment, His intellect was of a very high order. The more manly faculties of the mind were early cultivated and brought into play. At a time when most schoolboys seek only amusement, or devote them selves to the literature of the imagination, he had made himself familiar with the philosophy of mind and the science of political economy. He had a taste for metaphysics, and delighted in those wri ters which required the exercise of tho reasoning powers and the nicest discrimination to appreciate. His apprehension was not quick but it- was sure, His thought was not rapid but it was profound. He looked below the surface always. He lmd one characteristic, which, as it is the rarest, so it is the highest attribute of mind originality. He never looked at any thing in a common place ordinary way. This was the great merit and charm of his conversation. He was not a ready talker, but what he said had a point which made it impressive, and a weight that caused it to be remembered His conversation was rendered doubly attractive by a vein of quiet humor, equally remarkable for its raci ness am originality. He was eminently social in his disposition Jiked his friends and liked to have them with him. Jfr) man ever had a better heart. Naturally diffident and reserved in the exhibition of feeling, he had all the attractive power of gen uine kindliness. Under a soiuowli.it rough exte rior he possessed the tenderness of a wonjan. Sin cere in all his dealings, hU word was inviolable. To j his immediate family, his loss is truly irreparable. His numerous friends will long remember his ster ling good qualities and high attainments. The Practical Preacher. A number of years ago, Parson B preached in ti town in the inte- rior of this Suite. A sound theologian wa3 Parson I , as & published volume ofhis sermons evin ces, but like many clergymen of the past generation, he was too much giveu to preaching, "doctrinal ser mons," to the exclusion of ''practical themes," at least m thought oneol Ins parisblonars, Air. C . "Mr. 1J ," said he, ouo day, to the clergy man, "we know nil abont the dqctriups by this time. Why don't you sometimes preach us a real practical discourse ?" "Oh, very well. If you wish it, I will do so. Next Sunday I will preach a practical sirjnaa." Sunday morning came, and an unusually large audience, attracted by tho report of the promised novelty, were in attendance. The preliminary ser vices were performed, and the pars jn announced his text. After -'opening the sublect," he said lio should make a practical application to his hearers, lie then commemed at tho head ofthe aisle, calling each member of the congregation by name, and pointing out his special faulis. One was a litfln in. I cliued to indulge in creature-comforts, another was a terrible man at a bargain, and to m. While in mid volley, tlio door of the church opened, nnd Dr. S entered. "There," went on tho parson, "there is Doctor S . coining in the middle of the service.just as usual, and disturbiug the congregation, lie does it just to make people believe that he has so largj a practica that he can't get time to come to church in season, out it is not so lie hasn't been called to visit a patient on Sunday morning for three months." Thus went on the worthy clergyman. At last ho come to Mr. C , who had requested a prac tical sermon. "And now," said he, there's Mr. C ; he's a merchant, and what does he do? Why, he stays at home on Sunday afternoon, and writes business letters. Jf he gets a lot of goods from New York on Saturday night, he goes to his store, and marks mem on ouuuay, so au 10 nave mem lor sale on Monday morning. That's how he keeps the Sab bath; and he isn't satisfied with doctrinal sermons. i. . .-.I . ' ne wants practical ones. At the conclusion of the service, the pareon walked up to Mr. C , and asked him how he liked tho -'practical sermon ?" "Mr. B ," was the reply, "preach just what you please after this.

In several of the agricultural district1? the agra rians arc still supreme. In many instances the old rancheros have been completely stripped ot all ttieir possessions, the squattcra not leaving them even their gardens, orchards, or yards. The herds are sometimes driven from the ranches, sometimes seized upon and slaughtered or sold by the squatters, and sometimes the owners are compelled to pay for the grazing of their cattle upon their own lands lands of which they have held quiet and peaceable posses sion ever since the Spanish settlement of the terri tory. For all these wrongs and outrages there ap pears to be no remedy in the State, and the suffer ers have little or no hope of relief except from the General Government. The wheat crops, in - nearly all parts of the State arc suffering with rust, which it is said will make the yield twenty or twenty-five per cent. Ies3 than it would have been otherwise. This, with the pre sent rates of flour, has advanced the price of wheat considerably, and the farmers will realize large prof its from their crops, notwitlistanding the tusL The present season is highly favorable to mining operations in the gold districts; the miners seem to be generally fortunate in possessing valuable claims, which are yielding abundantly by the use of improv ed means for extracting the metal From present appearances, the total production of gold for the six months commencing with the 1st of June will be larger than during any similar period since the open ing of the mines. The result will be effected, too, at larger profits to the miners engaged than hereto fore. We have to record the hanging of two more men by the populace in Culavera3 county, one on the charge of horse-stealing, and- the other for murder. A decision was rendered in the-Supreme Court a few days since that will attract attention and create some surprise in the Atlantic States. The Court decided that the mincj of gold and other precious metals of California arc the exclusive property of this State, that the United States have no interestin them, and cannot exercise any jurisdiction over them. The decision does not include the lands con taining the niineralSj but only the minerals them selves. If this opinion of the Court becomes es tablished as law, which wc think it will not, it will prove of immense advantage to the Slato by making the mines a source of State revenue, which they nev er can be so long as they are recognized as the prop erty of the General Government: Hktokted Captciie of Joaquin-. The Alta Cal ifornia of tho 1st inst publishes the following report of the capture of Joaquin, the noted robber. Quaiitzcuro, July27, 1853. It has just been i-eported here that a company of Rangers, commanded by Capt. Harry Love, met with the notorious murderer and robber, Joaquin, six of his equally infamous baud, at Panocha Pass, and, after a desperate running fight, Joaquin anil one of his gang were killed and two taken prison oners; three managed to make their escape, but one of their horses was killed and several captured. Capt. Love is now on his way down with his pris oners aud the head of Joaquin preserved in spirits. One of the killed was Three-fingered Jack. In haste yours, t. c. a. On this the Alii California remarks: Three-fingered Jack is an old offender a consum mate villian, with whose early exploits in California wc arc quite familiar. He is a native, we believe, of the country. lie was the principal actor in a terrible, tragedy which occurcd in the spring of 1340 not far from Sonoma. Two of Fremont's party were captured by a band of native Californians, headed by this "Three-fingered Jack," and their persons horribly mutilated before death was granted them. One was literally flayed alive. Jack (who derives his sobri quet from the mutilation of one of hi3 hands, caus ed by its having been caught under a lariat against tlid jHmnifil of lila cvl1i1Ic -vrlulc l.tuiiij n biilltiek) was once a prisoner in this city, four years since.

Raynaud, the Frenchman arrested in London for sending letters to tho Prince de Joinville, offering to assassinate Louis Napoleon, has had a hearing and been held to baiL The prisoner wa3 probably under some derangement of mind. He said hehad been for a long time suffering from ill-health, which occasionally affected his intellect. He had been an inmate of the hospital at Southampton, where his hair was partly shaved off. Under these circum stances, and for the sake of his wife, he- implored the mercy and consideration ofthe court The let ters he wrote were read. In the first letter, after dwelling upon the inter est which he took in the welfare and happiness of the Princes family, and thcleenngsot hatred Which he entertained, in common with his oppressed coun trymen, towards "iNapoleon the Little, wfio IiaU deprived the Prince and his family of their just right to the throne of i ranee, the writer proceeded to say ''I leave for Talis. My journey is for you, and for3'ou alone. I swear it on the grave of my moth er and father. My life is a burden to me. 1 cannot sulfer it, my I'rinco. My wife, who is seventeen years of age, I wish to place under your protection. 1 have found an excuse for my voyage, and she con sents. But the poor child will be the only victim of r.:y project.

May yon read in my heart the sentiments I have for you and your dear family. Adieu, my Prince. All I desiro that you may soon be t p m the throne making the people hap pier and ad France loving you." In the secoud letter there is the following pas sage: "I again take the liberty of writing to you these few lines, previous to my departure. I have col lected the little money due to me, but it will not suffice in carrying out my views. I alone under take to blow up the tyrant and his accomplices, and all those around him. I will give my best guaran tees for the advances you might make me. I leave my furniture I leave my wife, who is possessed of tho value of 12,000 francs, besides her venue in a business. I employ several workmen. Ybur Roy al Highness, it is money I require, but not a heavy sum. - I must have 20, and I give the right to any one to stab me anywhere, wherever I may be, if I do not change the French Government."

VALUABLElKONPaOPEHrY AND FARM FOR SALE. rpIIE snbscriber would call the attention of those who I wish to embark in the Iron business, also those who wish to own a handsome and fertile firm, to the following property which he otTers for sale. 1st. Jackson Furnace ami lands, say about 2"00 acre!. This furnace is on Beaver Dam Creek, Dickson county, Tennessee, and the stack is the largest in tho Slate, being 47 feet high. The lurnace, except the stack, is now being rebuilt, and will be ready to put in blast by the Ut of No vember. The rouleof the North Western ltailroad, as sur veyed, posses immediately by the Furnace. The ore is un surpassed, and the timber and grounu admirably adapted for coaling. Also, Belleriew Furnace, and about 3600 acres of land, including the Dickson ore bank. This Furnace is on Jones' Creek, about three miles South tf Charlotte. There is a good water power, aud also good fanning lauds attached to this propel ry. Also, the Valley Forgeon Jones Creek, and about 37,- 00 acres of laud. The tail is .23 feet, and the head oi water immense. There are some Tery tine farming lands in this tract, and it is altogether a most desirable location. Alo, the Mill Creek property and Duck River ote bank in Hickman county, Tennes:e. The Mill Creek sites, of which there are lire or sir, present the best water powers for the sizeof the stream that can be found in any country. The Duck River ore bank is the heariest deposite of ore in the State, and the ore can be procured with less labor than at any bauk in the country. It is within half a mile of Duck River, and the lands around are covered with the best coaling timber. Also, the Lower Tunnel, at the Narrows of Harpeth, in Davidson county, Tennessee, with ten acres of land fur buildings and machinery. It isiinnecestary to speak of the water power at the Narrows of llarpeth. It is known to erery one, and twenlj-five years of experience enable lh subscriber to speak with certainty of its great benefits and uefulness. It is, indeed, only to be seen lo be appreciated. Lastly, my Williamson Farm, on which 1 now reside, and which tor beauty and fertility is second to none The hou.e is large and airy, and the out-buildings of the best descrip tion. It is intersected by the Southern Railroad, and also by the Nashville and i ranklin Turnpike. It is 1 1 miles from Nashville and 7 from Franklin. It is a "meadow farm, watered by Little Harpeth, and the best evidence of its quality is the bay produced on it this year, which all who have seen it, pronounce it the best they hare ever seen. 1 tis altogether one of the most desirable toruu for beauty and protitthatis in the South-west. It contains about fieo acres. The above propertr is offered f w sale, not for tho purpose of profit or speculation, but simplr from the fas that the I subscriber's heallh, makes it necessary to rtliete himeir of the care, necessarily incident to so much leal properly lo cated at different points, and renders him unable to git e it mat personal alienlion vrlucn it requires. Any one wUhing to purchase any of the above property will plea.se call on the subscriber at his residence, or ad dress him at Good Spring J. O., Williairoou county. Ten peeeB. ati'31 Jin M.
