Havingflieara it frequently asked by the numer oua.triends of this distipgujsbed. gen tlenlen why -ho was not put iniomination for. the Speakership of the Uouse-or Eeprreentatives, we take tlna occasion to state that Mr. Joses declined permitting his name - trf be used in'that connection. He had many ar dent friends among the members of the House who would have ' evinced their attachment to him as man and admiration of liim as a statesman by sup porting him for the Speakership; but the state of lm health has been, for months past, too feeble to admit of his undertaking the arduous duties of .that position. ,' We are happy to say, however, that he is gradually recuperating, is constantly at his post in Congress, and gives his wonted energy and attention to public buanesj, - , , li 1 ' V THE LATE ERIE MOB. We regret to see it stated in the telegraphic col- ' umtis of jsomeof our.cotemporaries that Gov. Bio ler, of "Pennsylvania, has sent a message to the people of .Erie, declaring that his sympathies are with them, and that he will make them a visit if Uiry desire his company. We sincerely hope that this report is slanderous, for the sake of Gov. Bioler': character as a man and an officer. Wo can hardly conceive a more flagrant outrage than that of which the people of Erie liave been guilty, and t they receive the countenanceand 'Sympathy of" the State Executive wij cannot Jook upon it otherwise than as a most disgraceful and lamentable sign of the times, That thepeopleof En e should 'w,sh to lleece the unfortunate travelers who are compelled to pass through their town, by selling them at ex orbitant prices hot cofTeo and doughnuts, is perhaps not to be wondered at, as the world goes. The .traveller is considered legitimate prey by such" folka as composed the mob at Erie, and it is absolutely es sential to the commerce ofsuch towns that he should bs Tried freely. Jf he has the least drop of patriot ism in his body, and more especially if he has a doe regard for the soundness of said body, he. will submit to tho operation as -a lamb goes to J.he -laughter. m JJutit is a little too bad when the pub lic peace and private rights are molested in order to entorce this implied right to rob the traveller. And it is still worse when the chief officer of a State openly countenances such infamous proceedings. v e theretore repeat that we sincerely- hope Gov: jjioleb nas not disgraced himself and Ins station by sympathising -with the rioters of Erie. If he has, ho is unworthy of his position, and deserves the execrations of the gallant democracy of Pennsylvania. We entirely concur with the Louisville Journal in Uie opinion that "it is a disgrace to the State Pen ii9ylvania that the citizens of Erie have been permitted, without opposition, to destroy the rail road and tho railroad bridge near that place. The State should have protected by force the property of the company and compelled submission to the law, even if it had been necessary to charge 'upon the mob as npon a gang of invading Indians. The majesty of the law now demands that eome huri-' dreds of the Erie ruffians shall be sent'to the peni tentiary, aad hope that it will be done. It would be well to have a big penitentiary erected expressly for their accommodation. And we could wish thero might be two or three forges in it, so that the rascals," with shaved heads, and tow breeches, un der the crack of the whips of overseers, might be compelled to make iron rails to supply tho place at those they have destroyed. THE MESSAGE. In contradistinction to the comments of the Whig press of this meridian, we give below the opinions of three papers which hold quite as high a rank in Whig estimation as any in the Union : The Alexandria Gazette bestows the following cautious commendation on the President's mes sage: "The message of the President will be read this year with universal interest. Jt is written well, and uivesa very gratifyintr account of our foreiim lelations, as well as our domestic prosperity. There are lewer poinun open u criticism tnan we expect edand, we are pleased to see, a public document oi mis cnaracter wiui so little 01 the partizan and politician, and so much of the statesman in its com position. The di?cussion of some portions of its contents we shall reserve to a future occasion For the present we should prefer that it should be impartially judged, withont-comments, prejudice or n.-Hiiioii iu cuuiroveri lis positions. With views to which we may object, it carried out to their le- flilmiiteconclusiona, wesee much to applaud, and many patriotic sentiments which we heartily com- .....n.l 'PI. :.. . f i -. , iii-uu. iuuc 13 n nauLuj tixpucuness, on the fa cific llailroad question but enough is said to show thatir. is not an administration question. Upon the whole, we trust that the performances may bo as pood as the promise, and that hereafter we may be as able to speak as well of the President's acts as we do of his words." The Ldiimore American is more explicit. It siy3: 'We cannot, of course, discuss the topics treated of by the message at this time, but wc take pleas ure in saying that whilst its style'and temper are worthy of approbation, the nationality of its doc- tniiea in maintaining the rights of our citizens in restraining depredations against other nations in protecting and developing our infant and distant acquisitions in the general supervision of our do mestic interests; and above all, in pledging himself to maintain the compromise measures, and to see that the repose which he assumes has succeeded the adoption of these measures shall "suffer no cheek during' his 'official term, if he shall have power to avert it' is worthy of all commendation imd support Indeed, in studying the State papers of an Administration whose chief has written so little that his political opponents condemn, the fu ture historian will be at a loss so imagine why such an Administration should have experienced so great a loss of party confidence or Such a diminution of legislative strength. The Xational Int&tgcncer is quito as emphatic : "Without attempting at present anything like a review of tins important exposition of the state of the .Nation, and of the views entertained by tho j'resiueut upon particular questions ot national nol icy, we may bo allowed to say that, as a "whole, the jHtrusai ot it lias atiordeu us gratih cation in ma ny uungs anu even agrccaoie aisappomtment in some leaving us little to regret hut its opinions, (iiucnng irom our own, on certain points upon which we naa no reason to expect them to agree. SALARIES OF THE JUDGES. There is now pending in tho General Assembly, a bjll which proposes to increase the salaries offaur Judges andChancellors. We'aro very clear inUhe belief that its passage would advance th'o'pubUc in terest, and meet -with thetgeneral applause of tha people. There "arc three' separate and dwtiilct branches of.-tho 'GovernmentOF these-three Ihe Judiciaryjs jl. the firat importance, -because tts officers are every day called upon to decide ques tions affecting the life, liberty, property and honor aofthe.dtizen He .then who is clothed-withthis. immense power should have- profound learning, commanding" talents' and incorruptible virtue. He should be equal if not superior to the ablest advocate who appears before him. Wijl the .salaries now paid our Judges always attract such men to lhobech7 ' We think ii oC He who. has tlie learning" and ability absolutely neces sary for,tk 'proper discharge -of the duties of a Jjidgec&n always in this State at the Bar make at least three times as much as he would receive if on the Bench. The honors of tho station, it 'is truei Irequently tempt rich lawyers of eminence to give up lucrative-business at the Bar to go on theHeuch. Butitis not always so. Besides the principleis wrong. The honors of the Judiciary should be open to the poor as well as the rich. , ' . The people are about to elect their Judges.,' In our view the office is about to bo invested with a newer and liigher-dignity. The 'elect of the people, who is by them clothed with power, to whose judg ment and skill they every day submit questions of the gravest importance,, should he so paid as to en able Inm to devote his ontire time to the discharge of the duties of his high .office. The law fixing the salaries of the Judges was passed many years since, "when money was scarce and property low. "The times have changed, most happily for the better. Our State has increased to an amazing exte wealth and population. The vast influx of gold from California, the establishment of unnumbered Banks, and the general prosperty of the country ha3 depre ciated the value of money and increased that of property. -With our wealth and population so has litigation increased. The number of causes now heard and decided in the Supreme Court is three times greater than in 1835. That court is now in session about seven months in the year. While in session tho Judges are engaged night and day in earnest toil They are absent from their families and homes, and of course unable to pay any atten- tention to their private affairs. - Is a salary of 1800, commensurate with the labor and dignity of the office? We think not. It so happens thai the three eminent citizens now on the Supreme Bench, have each of them handsome pri vate fortunes made at the Bar. It is no great dif ference to them, but hereafter it may happen that Uie-people will have some favorite who is eminently qualified to grace the bench,, but who is compelled to decline on account of poverty. Let this be changed. The people are willing, most willing to pay in a liberal manner those who serve them faith fully. We are quite sure the subject is worthy the careful consideration of the members of the General Assembly, and we are equally sure such consider ation will satisfy them that our Judges are but illy paid. OUR INDIAN AFFAIRS. From the report of Commissioner Manypenny we make the following abstract The whole number of Indians within our limits is estimated at 400,000. About 18.000 vet linirer m some oi uie oiates east oi tne Mississippi river puuupauy iu Aiew iurs, jucuigan ana Wisconsin; the remainder, consisting of Cherokees. C hocktaws and Seminoles, being in North Carolina, Mississippi auu xiunua. The number-in Minnesota and alons the frontiers of the western States to. Texas. comDrisino' mainlv emigrated tribes, is estimated at 110,000, those of me jriains ana xiocKy iionntams. and not within any of the organized territories, at 63,000; those fin n1 , on nni. ,i .- -vr ir : Lcjiaa w,uuu, uiuae ill new jlieXICO at 48,000' must; i u auiomia ai ijv,vwr, tnose in Utah at 12,000: and those in the territories of Oregon and Washington at 23,000. ine untortunate and distracting controversy ssmetime existing among the Seneca Indians of JNew lork m regard to their form of government, seems happily to have terminated, the republican system, adopted by the majority in 184S. beinrr ap parently now acquiesced in by the remainder, by whom it was long and strenuously opposed. 1 iiie commissioner reports ins visit to the Indians within the boundaries of the proposed territory of j.'teuiiisits, auu mat ne neia councils with everv muc nuuiu no visiieu, anu oisciosea to them the object ot ins journey to their country. He found the Indians' mind in an unfavorable condition to receive and calmly consider his messaee. For some time previous to his arrival in the Indian country, indviduala from the States had been exDlorini nnr- tionsof it with the intention, as we understand of . . i -1 . t ... uiiuiiipuug iu juuku locations anu settlements. The discussion ot the subject, and the exploration of the country by citizens of the States, alarmed and ex cited tho Indians. Some of them were preparing a Kiaim tuuuun, ai. which ic was designed to light up the old Indian fires aud confederate for defence against the white people, who they believed were coming in force to drive them from their country, and to occupy it, without their consent, and with out consideration. Under these ciicumstances it was very difficult to quiet the Indians, or divest their minds of an impression that the Commission er's visit was not in some way or other intended to aid the whites in a forcible occupation of tho coun try. As he progressed in his iournev and rnnfor. red with the tribes, the difficulty was oradualfi-re moved.

"How Stands the case ? Our mines of coal, iron, copper, lead, marble, gypsum, -slate, &c, are as un approachable for all practical purposes as though they were in the" moon, vfbch, T. ithout the ordin ary difficulties attending . the building of railroads in a mountainous country, they might be made easy of access.

We depend chiefly "upon Pennsylvania and Ken tucky for supplies, and occasionally (when by rea son oi tow water or ice, these uncertain sources fail) shipments of English Coal have been made from Kew Orleans; thus, paying out every year several hundred thousand dollars, to foreign inter- eats fox that which we have'at our own doors ; and it is. now gravely said, that "as soon as the Ken tucky roads are .finished, Tennessee will le placed in the way to secure an unlimited sujtply 'of coal" u ould it not be just as wise to let our forests stand and depend upon the same source for supplies of- wood ? the cases are precisely analogous, and one is just as preposterous as .the other. - , It is not the object of the writer to disparage any railroad improvement projected.jn tha State. They all tend (lead where they may) to the general improvement of the country: yet he cannot hut think, that policy ruinous to the best interest of Tennessee, which does not regard, as paramount to all other considerations, that system, in the con struction of railroads, which will tend most to tle- velopo her own resources, and as far as our1 own products are concerned, make her citizens inde pendent of foreign supplies. To a great extent the proposed Central road from the Mississippi Rivpr to Knoxville (particularly that portion of it be tween Nashville and Knoxville)" will effect this ob ject as to the mineral resources, as it would pass, nol tn the neighborhood' of, but over the mineral region, striking the coal field within eighty miles of Nashville,(about four hours- railroad time,) and.it b believed, upon a down grade the whole distance, It is plain that until something is done to supply an abundance of coal for manufacturing purposes at reasonable prices, capital will not seek invest ment in Tennessee, and tho simple question is, whether it is better to' get that supply from our own mines (thereby giving employment and profit to our people) or "sit idly by" and let our moro cnterprizing neighbors furnish ft ? These circumstances may appear of very little consequence to those who have given the subject only superficial consideration, and look only to ob taining what our necessitiesrequire, without regard to the manner ; yet on examination they will find that the consequences of the ,two methods are of vast importance, -and - extend themselves far and wide, both on their immediate objects, and on' a thousand blhers, as well in the present as the future.

With but few exceptions the Indiana posed to selling any part of their lands, as an nounced in their replies to the speeches of the Commissioner, finally, however, many tribes ex pressed their willimrness to sell. hut. on tJ, . dition that they could retain tribal reservations on their present tracts of lands. This policy was deemed objectionable, and not to be adopted if it could be avoided; and with such tribes the time of treatiucr was deferred till hope that the Indians by that time might see that their permanent interests required an entire trans fer of all their lands and their removal to a new home. Some tribes declined to dispose of any portion, and with the excentiou nftlm WW!.. and Ottawa.-", who expressed an opinion on the sub- i . organization ot a civil government in that territory were opposed to the measure. They have with but few exceptions, a very crude and unintel ligible idea of the "white man's laws," deemin" inera engines ot tyranny and oppression, and they dread them as well as fear them.

An accident which befel him in a fall from his horse, has deprived a lovely wife of an affectionate husband, a dear little son of a fond and dotins father, and the whole community in which he lived of a most useful, ef fective and public-spirited citizen. We knew him not only as an accomplished gen tleman, but a3 a laborious and valuable public of ficer; and ve speak of Jnmnotmerely to pay a de served tribute to his worth as a man, but becouse we know of no man whom we would sooner pro pound as an example to young men seeking to make themselves useful and honorable in life. The office of Clerk and Master of the Chancery Court under its present separate and independent organization, 13 tine of great labor and difficulty, andresponsibility. This office Gen'l li. has held for the past eighteen years, discharging- its duties with promptitude with distinguished ability and acceptability to Chancellors, lawyers and litigants mhi3 county; and, if distinctions were not invidi ous, it might be said with remarkable truth, that he was tho best Clerk and Master in die State of Ten nessee. In adjusting the complex details of a mercantile partnership, and of executorial accounts, wu have often admired the industry, laborious research and ability with which he would work out the abstruse problems presented to lu'm in the discharge of the duties of his office aiding the Chancellor in the dis charge of his arduous duties, and leading the minds ot lawyers engaged in the causes of the court, to satislactory results and conclusions. uen. u. was emphatically a good man. Those who knew him best, valued arid loved him most He was. a faithful friend. The .closer the scrutiny the more his fidelity was exhibited, and the more beautiful seemed his character. He had few defects for friendship to conceal Not perfect, for perfection is not nllowed to mortal manjbut In none did the alJoy oi numanity ever bear a smaller proportion to the pure ore. There was in him a singularly exact ad justment of passions and faculties. Gen. B. loved his country was a .brave soldier, and in the Mexican war covered himself all over with glory. He is gone, and we shall see him no more on earth, except in the memory of his virtues. The chasm which he has left at Gallatin, in tho social I circle, in tho Chancery Court Clerkship, in the lov ana atlections of that community, it is fearful contemplate. That manly form, warm with all the atlections of life, is now cold in death. The brave soldier, the faithful friend, the affec tionate husband and father, has ascended to his Father in Heaven.
