Tn-lNsw York, only, the split in the democratic ranks ba? enabled the Seward men to succeed. This Result was foreseen by everybody. Pull re turns will show that the wiiigs are as weak in New York" as any wliere else, and that they succeeded only through the division of the democratic party. The democratic candidates for Judges of the Court or Appeal, who were on both ticket?, are elected. The whigs elect the remainder or the State ticket. The result secures the re-election of William H, SEwiuo lo the United States Senate. - a. i . i. i - - UE.W J. W. WHITFIELD. The Mi'sonti Democrat, published at St. Louis, r -iifctices a speech made by Gen. WiirrriELii,.fornicr . ly of this State, at a democratic meeting in Missou ri. Gen.

By particular request we invite the attcntioii of ' our readers to. the subjoined extract from a well written article in the Kuoxvillef(te,on thenib jecl of "OUR STATE J'OLICY." "Tennessee, five hundred miles long, over a hun- dred miles wide, lying nearly midway between the " bread-growing regions of the north and the cotton growing regions of the south, the fertile plains of the .west and the commercial cities of the east, and hav ing some of the best p.isses of the great Appalachian range, roust be crossed by various lines of both sys tems. Ohio seeks the south through East Tennes see, Indiana through Middle Tennessee, and Illinois through West Tennessee, giving rise to the Cincin nati and Charleston, the Louisville, Nashville and - New Orleans, and the Mobile and Ohio railroads, in addit'on to the noblf rivers running lo the Gulf and to the Atlantic. These routes across the three di visions of the state are marked by nature as grand 'thoroughfares of trade and travel, and are without iivals in Iheir respective directions. The leading thoroughfare east and west, has not yet been established. At the extra session of 133G, the Legislature ms.de an appropriation for the sur vey of a 'Central Itoad" leading from the Missis sippi river to the Virginia line, -as near the centre of the state as practicable." A competent Engineer made a careful examination and partial survey of the whole route, and madti an elaborate report to the Legislature in 1S37. But the commercial revul sions of tliat period having intervened, nothing more -was done with that report than to print it. The policy then indicated by the Legislature of a "Cen tral railroad," to connect the three divisions of the state together, by a grand trunk road near the cen- . - .tre of thn state, with which every count' in the whole state might easily connect itself with stone, plank, or iron tracks, wrs wise and judicious, and ought undoubtedly now to be carried out, the route being so modified as t. pass through Nashville, the capitolof the state. The sea board states have near lv all their "central railroads." leadiiiir from their I principal seaorts by their capitals toward the val ley of the Mississippi. Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Mary laud, Pennsylvania, "New York and Massachusetts, all have their roads reaching towards the granary of the west, which is traversed by many like roads in the western states. State pride, as well as sound economy, properly in duces each state to seek the development of its own resources, and the relations of wealth withinitsown limits. A central road draws wealth toward it from neighboring borders, r.nd thus practically enlarges the area of the state, and this is especially true of a state so narrow as ours. But theie is a higher con sideration, pecuniarially siieakiutr. for the construc tion -'of the central railroad of Tennessee," than any yet named. The commerce of the Pacific will seek its way across the continent by railways to the At lantic, as that of the Mississippi now crosses the Al- l.n-liuna T1 1 1 .'nciiul n . 1 . . . , I' ..11 : . . i . roads within our own territory, is undoubtedly that from San Diego through New Mexico and Texas; and wherever that work may strike the Gulf of Mexico or the Mississippi liver, a branch of it will undoubtedly strike our own state at Memphis or above, and connect with our linmosed central road. through which it will find practically the shortest route to Washington and the eastern cities. A glance at the geography of the country is sufficient to show tfcis fact Those four thoroughfares, then, are the works to which we think the energies of the state should be first and mainly directed, until their prompt con struction and complete equipment shall le fully se cured. It is folly for the state to be exhausting her self and sinking her credit by dabbling in every neighborhood road that may be suggested, and it is madness to be favoring projects that will tend to drawolffrom her "Central railroad" that (rave) mid traffic which it ought naturally to commauriL Let .us not be understood as opposing the construction of any road which individuals are williu? to pay for the more the better.

Prom the slave market, wc visited the Palace of the Grand Vizier, situated near the great Fire Tower of Stambouh The building is quite exten sive, on the European plan, but presents nothing extraordinary either iirits external or internal ap pearance. Near the Palace in Adrianople street still stands the celebrated Burnt Column. It is about fifty feet iu height, but so much sliattered and blackened by the frequent fires in the neigh borhood that it is impossible to make much out of iL Upon close inspection I discovered that it was made ofpovphyry stones, the jointures hid with copper nugs. It is thought that Constantine's Statue stood on it By its inscription it appears that it was erected by the Emperor Manuel Com mcnes. Not far from this column are the Cisterns of.Constantine, now called Dindtrick, or the thous and and one columns, and Yerebatan Serai, the sub terranean palace, in which a number or half-naked pallid wretches are employed in twisting silk by the light of torches. Returning to Pera, we stop ped to examine the Caiques on the Golden Horn. They are the wherries of Constantinople, and the number that ply on the waters is said to be about ninety thousand, and are hiredlike hackny coaches in other cities. They are formed of thin plauk of bcechwood, neatly finished and elaborately sculptur ed. The .elegance of their construction, the extreme lightness of the material out of which they are made, and the dexterity of the oarsmen, cause them to skim over the smooth surface or the Horn with great swiftness. They have uo seats, the passen gers sit on rugs in the bottom and are required to remain perfectly steady to preveut being turned over. They are always to be found waiting for hire during the day at the points oflanding. While crossing the Horn I examined the bridges that connect Stainboul with Pera. They are made of boats placed certain distances apart with' locks for vessels to pass through, and are precisely the same form in structure to those on the Rhine, which I descrilied minutely in a previous letter. Just above the bridges are the ship-yards, and the strength of the Turkish navy, wliere a number of enormous vessels may be seen waking for war. They are too large for service, badly equipped, and fit only to be looked at and ridiculed by foreigners. In an aciion with such powers as France, England, or the United States, the Turkish navy would be as nothing, but to the nations in the region of this city it appears to be something grand, magnificent and terrible. Some of the Turkish vessels would reflect credit upon any country, if their people un derstood how to manage them. These vessels were constructed by American ship-builders, and it is to be regretted that they are so poorly manned. From the Horn we ascended the high hill upon which Pera is situated to the College of the Dancing Der vishes. The room in which they dance is circular, and the floor quite smooth. Before entering we were required to take off our shoes. The chief man, or Priest, was seated in the Turkish fashion, in a plase apart from the rest, who were arranged in a circle around the room. The head dress of the Priest was of green, the color of the Prophet, and the dancers wore a tall brown hat, shaped like a cone, and without any brim. Their dress was ! sometluag like the ladies wear in our country, hav ing very full skirts, and made of a dark brown ma terial. The dance is nothing more than a monoto nous turning on the heels with their arms extend ed like children playing: They go at it with great earnestness, and continue turning until the' fall on the floor perfectly exhausted and drunk. Leaving the College we walked through the principal street of Pera (which is entirely Euro pean) to the Barracks, near the Sultan's new pal ace. Here wo saw several thousand soldiers re viewed by the principal officer, and I was some what surprised to see how well they handled the musket. The Sultan has a great many English and French officers in his service, who teach his soldiers the tactics of modern improvement nearly as well as can be seen among the nations of Europe. One thing you may le sure of, and that is, the courage of the Turks. Fear is not in the Koran, and if they do not come out victorious it must be attributed to some other cause. The Sultan's new palace is not yet completed. It is constructed of white marble, and promises to be the moat magnificent palace of modern construc tion. It. is situated on the European shore of the Bosphonis, anil I will describe it to yon more min utely in my next number. Yours, &c, Tesn'E3eax. A VIEW OF TUK RATTLE FIELD.

Dr. Schramm, the German ora'torat the late meeting in Tammany Hall (see the Union of yesterday) asks, "shall we not, gentlemen, see' once more a terrible, a resistless arm uplifted the arm of universal revolution? " It is the dread of that tide of revolution wfiich will set in if the wai 13 prolonged between Russia and-Turkey, which has produced the vacillating conduct of England and France ou that question. Very recently I remarked in ono bf my letters to you, referring to the highly interesting letters in your columns from Palestine, that "Jerusalem is the most remarkable city in the world;" a remark echo ing that of your Syrian correspondent, and I prom ised some observations on this head. "The events in the East now occurring, I consid er as intimately connected with the ultimate for tunes of Jerusalem; in fact, as leading to that great turn in her affairs promised in the last verse of the 23d ch. of Matthew, as well as in the last verse of the 13 th ch. of Luke. To an' attentive reader of his Bible I need not say that the three last verses of the 23d ch. of Mat thew, and the two last of the 13th of Luke, which are identical in meaning, and nearly so in words, constitute one of the most impressive and import ant passages of Scripture. They do so, as develop ment or the character or Christ, and as development for more than eighteen hundred years of a train of events which isthero predicted. The design of this letter does not lead one to consider the 37th verse in the 23d of Matthew, nor the 34th verse of 13th ch. of Luke, but only the extraordinary predictions in the 38th and-39th of .i .i . . i i Matthew, and the 35th of the 13th ch. of Luke: "Behold your house is left unto you desolate." How this is fulfilled even to this hour your cor respondent "Tennessean" has very recently told briefly, but graphically in his account of the present situation of JerusalcuL A city once containing 500,000 inhabitants beautiful for situations as is noticed bv vour correspondent now contains not. more tlian 10,000. Although the most venerated city of the Globe venerated by Mahomedans as next in sanctity to Mecca venerated by Christians of almost "every sect beyond any other city or the world. Yer( since its destruction by Titus, it has never risen to great splendor, and lias been subjected to more thorough desolation than any other city of the world, that once possessed such grandeur, and beyond any other city endowed in the feelings of so vast a pop ulation with a character of such sanctity. Endow ed with great sanctity in the eyes of the combined Mahomedan and Christian populations, numbering for centuries about two hundred millions, yet, it .it has been subjected to desolation for nearly eigh teen hundred years; and it will probably be more than eighteen hundred years from its destruction by Titus, before it shall be to any considerable extent resuscitated. Uehold, your house is left unto you desolate;" has been fulfilled iu all the periods from the Roman vengeance until now. When for a brief period it has been restored to some degree of apparent prosperity, its prosperity has been as unreal- as that of the Antediluvian race, when the windows of Heaven were opened aud the fathoms of the great deep broken up, and the rain or ftrty days and forty nights began to de scend upon an unbelieving and astonished world. When the Safacens had possession of it at the commencement of the crusade3 it had a popula tion of more than seventy thousand. When taken by Godfrey De Bouillon and the first crusades, they massacred 70,000 people within its walls, includ ing the Saracenic garrison. At an earlier period, when rebuilt by jElius Advican, and called Elia Capitolins, (because dedicated to Jupiter Copitolinus) the Jews beintr permitted to return it soon became considerably populous; whereupon this miserable race revolted to throw off the Roman yoke, and the city was destroyed once more and not rebuilt to any extent for many years. The reign of the Latin Kings in it did not restore it to any consider able degree of splendor "Behold your house is left unto you desolate." But there i3 hope for the desolate city in the next verse, "ye shall not see man henceforth, until j ye shall say, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord." The seeing here referred to is not corporeal sight, but spiritual, and denotes undoubt edly the condition of the Jews. It is such sight as the Bible means in the 27th verse of the 11th ch. or Hebrews; "By faith lie forsook Egypt, not rearing the wrath or the Kinc; for he endured as seeing him who is invisible;" or as John means in his first Epistle, 20 ch. v. C: "Whosoever abidethin him sinneth not; whosoever sinneth, hath not seen him, nor known him." The sight here referred to is spiritual, manifestly and means that impressive belief which is equivalent to sight in its effects inducing an individual as fully to realize the subject matter of belief as sight does. Moses' faith in the 27th of Hebs. was "as seeing." The faith referred to by John, is seeing; its absence, not seeing. The Jews hitherto have been blind to the momentous reality of Christ's coming and character. Hence the awful sentence: ''Behold, your house is left unto you desolate." What a history must be compiled to express the forces of those few words. A few word3 of Omnipotence aud Infinite truth are suffi cient to blast or save. JJut there are many signs that this desolation is drawing to a close; and, prob ably, by the lapse of forty years more, the Jews will be generally converted, and Jerusalem begin again "to bud aud blossom as the rose." St'Lricii's. Hoc, PmcF.s, kc The market here, as well as elsewhere, is unsettled, and the buyer and seller cannot come to terms. The nominal rates have been 5 cents net, but buyers are now refiising to make engagements at over A cents. The only transac tion that we have heard of this week has beeu made by a packer, who sold 0,000 hogs at 5 cents, to be taken off the hooks by the purchaser. We hear al so of 5,000 green hams at 7 cents. It is estimated that 75,000 hogs will be slaughtered at Jefferson ville and New Albany this season, and 275,000 in this city, making a total of 350,000 round the Falls. The receipts of hogs arc quite heavy from all points, and wc notice that Teeter, Maxey fi Co., have received several thousand head, and will com mence killing as soon as the weather turns cold. The Shelby News reports a sale of 200 head at $-!, and that holders are firm at that figure, refusing offers of $3 87 J. The Bardstown Herald hears of sales in Mercer at $4 gross, and quotes S3 SO as the highest offer in Nelson. A decline is anticipated in that section. J. Man?ur& Sons have purchased, for $10,000, B.I. RIythe's pork-packing establishment in In dianapolis, and have made arraugemenLs to kill and pack this season 35,000 hogs. They have killed none yet, though they have been buying for .some time.

By letters received at New York it appears that Koszta has been- released, and embarked for this country under tlie restrictions im plied in Baron Brink's letter. The embarkation was accomplished in opposition to Consul Oflley by Mr. Dragoman Brown, who appears to have used force to compel Koszta to embark. The following is the letter Sjiyuna, Monday, Sept. 20, 1853. The attention ,f ourcircle ha3 been very much attracted these days by the misunderstanding which happened to take place between Mr. Oflley, the American Consul, and ilr. Brown, the Dragoman of the Legation at Constantinople, in relation to the affair of the refugee, Martin Koszta. Mr. Brown prepared with Baron Bruck a sort of arrangement by which Koszta would be released, but the right of Ahstria to exercise its powers over him, in the event of his return to Turkey, was fully recognised and agreed to by the American Lega tion. This arrangement was fully approved by Mr. Marsh, and the contracting parties proceeded to its execution. But as. Koszta was within the district or this Consulate, and Oflley, upon learning the con ditions of the arransement, protested against them as incondstent with the dijmitv of the American Government, and said that he should await the or ders of the D. partment of State, before he would submit to such disgrace. The legation, it seem3, felt wounded at this opposition of the Consul, and ifr. lirown came here from Constantinople to en force, through the means of the control that the le gation has over the Consul, the arrangement above mentioned. ilr. Brown went at once to the hotel, and sum moned the Consul. The latter denied Brown's pow er over him, and a series of letters were exchanged, which werecertainlv not of the most cordial nature. The Consul warmly defended the grounds or his ac tion, and Brown spoke about his full powers in the matter; and it appears that ilr. Brown had recourse, for the sike of carrying out his plan, to the same meaus that he resorted to two years ago when he broke'into the Antericarr Consulate at Constantino ple, and used Austrian forces against an American officer for Koszta was embarked, not, however, without opposition on his part, and his refusal to sign the convention relating to his uon-return. As the queatioii stainls. everybody here approves ilE Ofiley's conduct, and censures Messrs. Brown and Marsh for subscribing to a condition which dis honors the American name, and gives full victory to Austria. Indignation meetings are preparing, and Marsh and Brown will havo as many groans as Ingraham and ORley had praises. ADKLPIII TIIEATHE. A GRAND COairLMEXTAUY FAREWELL lJENEl'XT TO .Ult. J. If.

Sin I design this (my fourth article) as a reply to your reportto the Directora published in the Nash ville papers 31st October, 1S53; for although you (of course) do not mention my namoin it yet iti evident from several allusions therein made, and the efforts manifested to clear yourself from the many discrepancies brought to light by me in all your other reports tliat you felt the "sting of my first and second articles, and therefore sought the endow ment of the Directory. You likewise parade, as introductory to your report, a statement made by j a committee, to the Mayor and Alderman of Nash ville. This you tonaiy nope, win also be taken as an endorsement; but is it so ? Far from it. The Committee merely report your report stating that the business is too voluminous for them to investi gate. If you call this an approval of your admin istration, you are tnamciui lor sniau lavors; anu 1 ,l.;it-rPnt..r..tna.s.serLthatthereisnomanofcom- mon sense, who will bo gulled by it. It will not bo expected, that I can fully (at the present time) analyze your report This would re- ouireavammmotuiiivestigatiouiudeed; yctiW,as it has proved with all your others, will soon dispel its illusions, aud expose its errors, -uut sun, oeiure. T m done T think I shall be able to expose some larintr inconsistencies, and a fearful torebodmg ot ruin, to all the honest aud unsuspecting body of stockholders both corporate and single. I now assume that task, and first remark, tliat there are some Railroad Presidents, as well as some politicians, who presuming on the ignorance, want of informatiou, and credulity of the people, make to them, from time to time, such statements aud assertions, as the exigency of" the case at the mo ment appears to demand without regard to the correctness or the matter laid before them. This, Sir, has been yourhabitfrom the beginning of your administration, until now. You knew that immedi ate detection and exposure could notfully follow any of your estimates, statements and reports because it was (for the time) entirely a one-sided business. You therefore appear to riot in security, aad fan into the ears of stockholders, such tales of pros perity, and such saving of expense by their great financiering President, as will make them exclaim and wonder "how one small head can carry all you know." But, alas I time roll on it steady round, aud one after another of your various reports prove ridiculously false and delusive. This I liave already fully proved to be the case, up to, and in cluding your report of December, 1852, therefore it is unncessary to repeat the evidence; as I hope the stockholders have kept that exposure in their minds. You stated in your report of December, 1352, that 5341,000, would finish the road and stock it leaving a balance of $93,000, of a surplus. Did you not then know tliat a large amount of iuteiest was accruing on bonds? Yes, you at least had some faint knowledge of this, for you say in the same report, and as part of the sum total of all expenses above set down "balance to complete freight houses, water tanks, wood sheds and interest on bonds amounting in all to $130,000." Remember, this money to topay interest on bonds, was then on hand, and reported by you, as being so. Wml then are we to understand by the folio whig itein3 in your last report, just published? "From the same cause and delay in finishing the road we have been com pelled to pay interest 011 bonds; not earned by the roail. and for repairs. $103,000." Just above this item in your report you say: "From the delay in finishing the road from the above causes, we have failed to make profits to the amount specified in the estimate oriS52, which should bededucted from it.' Then cooly proceeds to credit himself with $00,000, for this failure! Verily, this is a beggerly amount of the earnings of the road and yet our President says, he has made contracts to the amount or $210, 000, over Mr. Thompson's estimate of $320,000, for stocking the road. How inconsistent and hetrogen ious are these items! Yet reader be not alarmed at the poverty of business on the road our Presideut was hard pressed for reasons to explain his exposed report of December, 1852, and adopted this poverty of earnings for the nonce. It is all moonshine, as you will soon see. Did you not also know when you made that re port, that you would have to pay, as you now state, $218,000 interest to stockholders, 1st of January, 1854? Surely these are not new discoveries, found out after you made your report? Why did you not state these facts to that meeting? And why did you not afterwards state them to the called meet ing of stockholders, in May, 1S53 when you asked to be authorized to borrow $050,000? Are not these unaccountable circumstances in the history or your administration? Why Sir, every stockholder then present knows, that the great burden or your speech at that called meeting was to provide large ly f r the increase or Locomotives, passenger and other cars on the road. This was the great and ob sorbintj theme or your oratory together with the slides in the Ricoon mountain, and the draw in the Tennessee bridge. Not one word was then said about a debt accumulating in Bank against the Com panv. What do you mean in your report by '"The closed debt or $309,548,70?" Does this include vour bills payable in Bank, exclusive or the $45,000 now under contract lor i.ocomoiives, o;cr x pre sume so, for you cannot yet call tiat a "closed debt." Your next acknowledgement of indebted ness is made up of various items amounting in all to $241,618,24 making together $011,107. To pay this you have the bonds of the Company for $030,000, and other contingencies in all $GS2,403. But Sir, where is the provision for the payment of interest to stockholders, 1st ot January, ls-ti which you say is $218,000? Where is the provis ion to pay the contract for Locomotives, &c, 45, 000? Wliere is the provision for unsettled claims and suits against the Company, amounting to largely over one hundred thousand dollars but say $100, 000. Now Sir, all this you knew, or ought to have known yea and did know, as well in December, 1852. and in May, 1853, as vou do now except the increased amouut for stocking the road. With this view of the matter how stands the account now? R. R. Co., Dr. to 'closed debt,' $309,548 70 " " For Machinery, &a, 211,018 24 " " Interest to stockholders, 218,000 " "Contract for Locomotives, ic 45,000 " To pay claims 111 suit, 100,000 In all $974,100 00 To pay this, bv your shaving the Company hs in all SGS2.493. " I again rejeat why did you not tell us this be fore? Why did you keep it back, until you were goaded to the quick, and compelled to come out? Especially, why did you not candidly and openly come out and make it known to the meeting of stockholders in May, 1853? Tliat meeting as you know, was very large, and 83 you found very lib eral and could, no doubt, ir apprized or an em barrassed situation have authorized you to hold back the interest to stockholders, until the road was in a more prosperous situation. But will tliat time ever come under you;- administration? No, never because you have lost the confidence or so many, and have deceived them so often, and so egregious ly in your reports, tliat they cannot trust you any longer. To show your continued aptitude or disposition to misrepresent and deceive I need only to reca- i nitmata the following statements from vour three pitulate the following statements from your three last reports: lii December, lboJ, you said the Shelbyville branch had only cost $32,812. You now say it has cost 100,000. AH the work done on it since December, 1852, at Roman's hill, and other rejiairs, cannot possibly exceed $5,000. So tliat in tins one item, you have made a mistake of 4 1,000. What more of your blundering of a recent date? Why, in December, 13o2, you stated the whole cost of the road and fixtures, when finished, at $2,011, 000 leaving a surplus on hand of about $32,000, besides the $00,000 profits of the road for the first half of this year. In vour Grst answer to me, pub lished 19lh October, "l85.'J, you saj-, "if the full amount of bonds authorized by the Company to be issued, and the whole amount used, the whole amount or expenditure would not exceed $3,"0O, 000." In your last report you state it at $3,71-1,-000. Seeing all this, how can you suppose that we should believe any or you statements? Stockholders: Are you aware tliat our road is vow governed by, and at the mercy of, one or the 1 most fearful monied aristocracies, ever known in . Tennessee? Look at it, and examine well the fol- lowing tripartite combination of wealth against us then say, if we should not tlee irom it, as speedily as possible? " . K.

Our President also uakes contracts for locomotives ami other raacliinerv with himself aud Company. In this condition . r things is it likety, that our imniasculate Prestlert, would make a close bargain with himself? Srery movement of this man shows a der.ermmatiot t make a huge fortune of this road if all the rtst c us sink. Look again : He receives $4 XK), .1 year to preside over the affairs of the road but r.oi content with that, he makes his office the stefp n -stone to speculate, not only in makinif looomotn es. and in lots about the Depot of NashviHe but cvn tinucs to speculate in land and Depots, all along the line of the road even to ChatUnnoga, where be has one of gigantic magnitude. Perhaps it may be said by some, that in thus re posing the President. I shaft do injury to the pros pects and cliaractcr of the road. If so, I j-hatt tleery. iy regret it, as my whole soul has hoen emisteJ .1 its welfare. But as a surgeon.
