Ve published to-day the eulogy pronounced, in the House of Representatives, by Col Smith, on . the. death of Hon. Brookins Camteelt It is an . eloquent production, and will be read with pride a'ike by the friends of the author and the lamented dead. Mr. Smith is a new man in Congress, but his career .there is destined to be a brilliant and use , . ful one. Possessed ,of a high degree of natural ability, and a cultivated and well-stored mind, he ' cannot fail to win a lasting reputation among the J4 d'lscriminating and intelligent men wilh whom he La brought in daily contact. THE MAILS. It is impossible to exaggerate the sad condition of the eastern and western mail arrangements. We have ceased to expect eastern papers in the regular time. On Monday night last, we received three papers only, one from Louisville, one from Cincin nati, and one from Cleveland. These papers came through in the regular time, but they came alone. We exchange with several other papers in Louis ville and Cincinnati, which we should have received at the same time, had contractors and postmasters done their duty. On the other hand, we receive our southern mail with almost perfect regularity. New Orleans and Charleston papers, which used to be from six days to six weeks on the road, now come through regu larly, the former in five and a half and the latter in three days. The railroad connection between this place and Chattanooga will, it is said, be completed within the next week. We live in hope that the eastern mail from Washington, New York, &c, will then be sent'by that route, and that we may then luxuriate in the regular receipt of our exchanges. That hope sustains us in our present mail afflictions. And this reminds u3 that the Post Office depart ment has now, in the persons of .T. W. Ford, L. J. Foim, and J. C. McCartt, three excellent mail agents on the railroad to Chattanooga. The Messrs. Ford have printed newspapers themselves, and have thus studied in the best of all schools for the edu cation of such officers. Mr. McCarty i3 an ac:ivc and intelligent gentleman, who will do his part to give regularity to the southern mail arrangement THE LOUISVILLE AND NASHVILLE RAILROAD. We find in the Louisville Courier of the 2d, a communication from the President of this road, giving the history of the sale of the compauy's first mortgage bonds in London, in April last As every thing connected with this road must be of interest to a large portion of our readers, we copy the Presi dent's statement in lull. In a few da3's, we are promised, from the same source, an exposition of the present position and future prospects of the road : In the month of January, 1So3, L. L Robinson, Chief Engineer of the company, was, by order of the Hoard, sent to London, with authority to ask proposals from a firm of wealthy contractors resi ding in London, who had taken some interest in the scheme of this company, had sent a confidential agent over the line, and on whose reports encoura giug letters were written, inducing the mission. Ou the arrival of Mr. Robinson in London, on his first interview with this London Company, he was in formed that the extent of engagements made by the different partners of the company, not known or understood by the party in America, had placed it out of their power to take further contracts. The mission of Mr. Robinson having thus failed, he, whilst in London, thought it advisable to look into the Bond Market, and finding an opportunity to place the first mortgage bonds of this company, entered into an agreement with a London House, on the 18th day of March, for the purchase of said bonds, subject to fhe ratification of this company; returning home about the middle of April, repor ted t- the Board his proceedings in reference to his mission, and the sale of the bonds. Having failed to make a contract for the construction of the road, it became necessary for this company to make such contract, before the sale of the bonds could be rati fied, for the reason that this company could not is sue the amount of first mortgage bonds coutracted for, except iu payment for the construction of the road. The proposal of Messrs. Morton, Seymour i Co.. for the construction of this road, had been sub mitted to await the result of the London mission, which having failed, was taken up on the 13th day of April, (immediately alter the return of Mr. Rob inson from London,) and accepted of, in payment; this compau- agreed to issue to said Morton, Sey mour ifc Co , their first mortgage bond?, thus pla cing this company in a condition to ratify the sale made by Mr. Robinson. Immediate attention was then given to the preparation of the bonds for the engraver; also in preparing the mortgage; to do which, a confidential adviser of the London house, residing in New York, had to be consulted; alo, the sanction of James Guthrie, Esq., as Trustee for the bond-holders, who was then in Washington City, to be obtained. The acceptance of the propo sal of Morton, Seymour & Co., to build the road, was made on the 13th of April, 1S53. On the 10th, a contract was made with Mers s. Rawdon. Wright Hatch & Edson, bank note engravers and printers Cincinnati, Ohio, undor a penalty of five hundred dollars, to have completed, acd to deliver five hun dred and fifty copies of said mortgage bonds, on or before the first day of June. Tins company were, however, soon advised by the engravers, that, on further examination of the work to be executed, notwithstanding the aid they expected to receive from the East, it was impossible to meet their en gagement before the 12th of June; and that, if the forfeiture was to be exacted, they would abandon the work at once. The company at once saw it would not do to go elsewhere; that a greater delay must be the consequence; the work was, therefore, permitted to progress, and the bonds were accor dingly delivered ou the 12ih day of June. It must be borne in mind that these were 30 year bonds, with 00 coupons to each bond; and all the precau tion of engraving the name of the Secretary of the eompany on the coupons, was taken; yet these bonds and coupons had to be dated and numbered, and the bonds Mgneil and eountei signed Ly the Presi dent and Secretary of the company; and, by in structions from the purchasers in London, received as late as June 21, had to be endorsed, w ith a con vertible clau.-e, and signed by the PreMdeut and Secretary of the comoany. The mortgage to be valid, had to be recorded in every county on the 'line of the roa 1, in Kentucky ard Tennessee, and the certificate of the Governor in each State ob tained. These bonds were all prepared and executed, ex- ' pressed to London on the 2tfth day of June, 1853 a period of 10 days after the deliver- from the engraver they were received in London on the 28th day of July following. Having shown that this company could not ratify the sab of the bonds until a contract was made for the construction of the road, and that the contract was made at the earliest day after the return of Mr. Robinson say on the 13th of April, and that the bonds were con tracted for and in the hands of the engravers on the lClh day of April, three days after; and that they wore received from the hands of the engravers onthe 12th day of June; Iask-our correspondent "From Haulm Comity," andl appeal to all concern ed, here and elsewhere, could these bonds 500 in number have passed through the necessary labor of execution in a shorter period, and be prepared with the necessary records and certificates m Ken tucky and iennesspe, m a less period than 1G days say from the 12th day of June, the day they were received from the hands ! the engravers to I the 2Sth or the same month, the day th.-y were 'ex pressed to London? It may be asked why a longer ' day was not taken for the delivery of these bonds' I In the absence of the Agent, I am nfiable to reply but think it probable the day may have been re garded sufficient for the delivery; or it may have ' been the longest day that could be obtained: it is ' only for me to show that no neglect nor denlection of the duty is fairly chargeable to me. I will only add an extract from a letter of the House in London, 1 Octobsr 1st, ISo.'J, on tins subject: ' "We are perfectly aware of the diligence and at- , tention which you have given to the fulfilment of I the contract in the manner proposed, and we dis- ' charge you from all imputation of any neglect in ' the matter, and of any delay which could have been I avoided by you." I I hope with this explanation the charge of deri hciion will no more be heard. In a few days I will reply to the inquiry of the condition and future prosoects of the road. L. L. SnrtEVE, President of L. &. N. R. R. Co. PROCEEDINGS IN CONGRESS'ON THE DEATH OF HON. BROOKINS CAMPBELL. "Wo find in the Washington' Union, of the 28th, the full proceedings in Congress on the death' of the Hon. Buookixs OuirBEU, or this State. We copy at length the eulogies or Hon. JTavls C. Jones, in the Senate, and Hons. Sasiu A. Smith, and Samuel Caeutuers, iu the House: Senate, Tuesday, Dec. 27 A message was re ceived from. the House or Representatives, by Mr. W. Y. McKean, chief cleik, communicating to the Senate information of the death of the Hon. Brook ins Campbell, a member of the House of Represen tatives from the State of Tennesseo, and the pro rppilinfra nf the House of Representatives thereon. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee. Mr. President, thnce within the last few days have we been called to do homage to the dead. This hall, draped in the insig nia of mourning, announces to us nnd the country that some distinguished personage ha3 been called from the walks of men, and that the nation honors his memory. I need not remind you, sir, that the object of this honored reminiscence was the Vice President of the nation. A few days after paying this mournful tribute of respect to this departed patriot, we were summoned to perform a like sad office in doing honor to the memory of one of our colleagues,- Mr. Atherton, a Senator from New Hampshire. To-day wo are called to mourn the loss of one of the people's Representatives inthe other branch of the national council. How strikingly, Mr. President, should theoft-te-peated bereavements admonish us of the uncertain tenure of everything that is human; how forcibly should it teach us -'what 'shadows we are, what shadows we pursue!" The message from the. House of Representatives inform? us that Broocins Camp bell is no more. He departed this life in this city on Sunday last, about one o'clock. He is number ed with the dead, havingpassed to that bourne from which there is no return. Mr. Campbell, the representative of the first Congressional District of Tennessee, reached this city iu feeble health, about the cpeniugof the pres ent session of Congress. His health continued to decline until nature,. wearied with the unequal con test, yielded to the stern fiat of Heaven, and the spirit, released from its fetters, winged its flight to the invisible world. The casket remains, but the jewel is gone. The honored subject of this humble tribute was a native of" Tennessee; born in the county of Wash ington, iu the year 1S08. For many years he was a member of the Legislature of the State, and in 1845 was chosen to preside over the deliberations of its house of representatives. Inthe commence ment of the war with Mexico he was appointed as sistant quartermaster, and in the discharge of the duties of this arduous service he doubtless contract ed the disease that has thus prematurely closed a life full of hope and promise. Thus, again, Mr. President, is the nation called to mourn the loss of another of its sons, whose life was given to vindicate its honor and defend its flag What multitudes of that patriot array have been erathered to their fathers, and now sleep the long sleep of death 1 Many fell in the fierce conflict of arms, and many more by the slow but no less latal progress of disease. Though many sleep beneath a foreign soil, iu a stranger land, and others were permitted to be buried with their fathers; yet, sir, scattered as arc their remains, varied as were their fortunes and their deaths, they are not forgotten. Their deeds and their memories are graven on a nation's heart, where they will live, and freshen, and bloom, as long as liberty shall have a name, or freedom a home. 1 know. Mr. President, that eulogies are often as unmeaning as they are unmerited. I can never deal in mere panecryric I shall sav no more than is due to truth and justice. Brookins Campbell was an honest man; and in all the varied relations of life vindicated his title to this high distinction. As husband, father, and friend, he was affectionate, kind, just, and true. But all thesa virtues cluster ing around him, and sheding their lustre on his pathway of life, were not sufficient to shield him from the shafts of death. Thedevoted fondness of a wife, a child, and friends, afforded no immunity from the dread fiat If a life of usefulness to his family, his friends, and his country could have avail ed anything, then he had not died. But alas ! how impotent is all human effort ; how unheeded the entreaties of friendship; how unavailing the tears of love and affection. Who but the Omnipotent can arrest the demands of insatiate Death, or stay its fearful desolations ! The decree is irrevocable dust thou art, and to dust shalt thou return. He has iuet the demand, and sleeps quietly. Whilst we, his colleagues, who knew him, and knew him only to love and admire, mourn his loss; whilst his State, and a large, large circle of friends will join us in our sad regrets, yet there is a heart on which this painful event will fall with crushing force the companion of his bosom, the object of his devoted affection. If the sincerest sympathy, or aught of human effort or human kindness, could avail anything to lighten this blow, or soothe the anguished spirit, it would be freely offered. But here all earthly ef forts fail, all human consolation are mere mockeries. We are left to commend her to Him who tenipercth the wind to the shorn lamb, and hath promised to be a father to the fatherless, and husband to the widow. As a last tribute of respect and affection to the memory of the dead, I offer, Mr. President, the following resolutions: Resolved, That the Senate has received with deep sensibility the message from the House of. Repre sentatives announcing the death of the Hon. Brook ins Campbell, a representative from the State of Tennessee. Resolved, That in token of respect for the mem ory of the deceased, the Senate will attend his fun eral at the hour appointed by the House of Repre sentatives, and will wear the usual badge of mourn ing for thirty days. Resolved, That, as a further remark of respect for the memory of the deceased, the Senate do now adjourn. The resolution were unanimously agreed to ; and The Senate adjourned. House of Representatives. The House met at the usual hour. The number of members in atten dance was small. Prayer having been offered by the Rev. Mr. Mil burn, chaplain of the House, the journal of Friday was read and approved. HEATH OK THE HON. BROOKINS CAMPBELL. OF TENNESSEE. Mr. Smith, of Tennessee, in announcing to the House the tfie death of his colleague, Mr. Camp bell, spoke as follows: Mr. Speaker, twice have we been called upon to mourn the loss of distinguished public servants since the mepting of the present Congress. And to-day I am instructed to ask the indulgence of the House to pause in its 'nbors while 1 perform the melancholy duty of announcing the death of my worthy colleague and friend, the Hon. Bbooki.ns Campbell, of the first congressional district of the Stated Tennessee. He died in this city on Sun d ty last, at one o'clock, p. in., leaving a fond wife and infant daughter, to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father. It is hard, sir, to die under any circumstances, but peculiarly so when away from home, and deprived of the kind and delicate attentions ol that ministering angel a wife whose tears soften the pillow of the dying husband, and whose presence blunts even the sting of death it self. Such, however, was the misfortune of Mr. Campbell He left home about the 20th of No vember, in feeble health, and came here to enter upon the discharge of the duties of the important trust confided to him by a generous constituency. Soon after his arrival in this city he was confined ; to a sick bed by a lingering disease, which baffled i the best skill of the medical profession, and pre vented him from ever taking his seat in this hall as I a member of this body. Conscious of his situation and impending dissolution, it will be gratifying to his beieaved family and friends to know that he met the dread summons with calmness and Chris tian resignation with a firm belief of his qualifi cation and complete preparation to pass fiom a world of sorrow to one of eternal rest Mr. Campbell we3 born in Washington county. in the State of Tennessee, in the 3-ear 1S03, and continued to reside iu his native county up to the day of his death. The many public trusts confer red upon him by his immediate neighbors and friends attest more strongly than I can by lan guage his many private virtues, and his sincere and unwavering devotiou to the public interest. In 1S35 he was elected a representative to the State Legislature from his native county, and wa3 re-elected in 1837. In IS 11 he was again returned to the popular branch of the legislature of his State, and continued a member of that body, at each successive session, until 1S1G. In 1845 he was, by the unanimous vote of the democratic members of the house of representatives of his State, cho sen as the presiding officer of that body. It was in this respectable position that Mr. Campbell ex hibited, in a high degree, those excellent qualitiesof head and heart which so endeared him to his friends. and won for him the admiration of his political op ponents. His urbanity of manner, amenity of dis position, honesty of purpose, and impartiality of decision, gained for him that respect and confidence of every member of the house so necessary to the preservation of decorum and good order in a legis lative assembly. In 1S40 Mr. Camabell was appointed, by Presi- flpnt Tslt rtn neniot.Mt . ...... i .. . . .1 v.u, ijjwui ijuui:iiiin5i iu me army I of the United States, then in active service on the plains of Mexico. He repaired promptly to the ! post assigned him by bis government, auu aisenar ! ged the duties of his office with an ability aud fidel t ity which gained for him, not only the good opm ! ion and universal respect of the division of the army with which he was associated, but the hearty ! approval of the President of the United States. It i was in that foreign clime, arid while in' the military i sirvicc of his country, he contracted the fatal dis ease which has cut him ott in the meridian 01 Hie and "in the midst of his usefulness." In 1850 ho was again elected a representative to the State Legislature, and by his wise, zealous, andsucccssfnl advocacy of those public measures of that session which looked to the devclopement of the resources and the promotion of the prosperity of the whole State Mr. Campbell acquired an in fluence and power possessed by butfewother mem bers of either branch of the general assembly. In gratitude for his distinguished services, as well as on account of his ability and purity of character, he was chosen by his district in August last to rep resent it in this branch of the national legislature. In politics Mr. Campbell wa3 a democrat, and radical, too, in his political faith. He engaged ac tively in most of the political struggles in hi3 na tive State since 1834. But no prejudice, no politi cal excitement, could make him swerve from the path of religious duty. J; or some time past no nan. acsireu to represent his district in the Congress of the United States. He reached the goal of his ambition; and arrived here in time only for his soul to take its departure from the capital of the nation to that city above "not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens." He ' So lived, that when the summons cametojoiu The innumerable carxvan that moves To that mysterious realm, where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death. He went, not like the quarry slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon; but sustained and soothed Hv an unfaltering trust, upproacbed the grave like one that draws the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams." Mr. S. concluded by offering thefollowing reso lutions : Resolved, That this House deeply laments the death of the Hon. Bbookins Campbell, who, at the time of his decease, was a member of this House from the 1st district of Tennessee, and tend er to his widow a sincere sympathy in this most afflicting bereavement. Resolved, That the Clerk communicate a copy of the foregoing resolutions to the widow of the de ceased; and lurther, that he communicate these pro ceedings to the Senate. Resolved, That the members and officers of this House will attend the funeral of the deceased to morrow at 12 o'clock, in. Resolved, (as a further mark of respect for the memory of the deceased,) That the members and officers of this House will wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days, and that this House do now adjourn. Mr. Oarctiiers, of Missouri, in seconding the resolution, said: A residence of many years in the State of Ten nessee, where I learned to admire the character of Brookins Campbell intimacy ripened into the warmest friendship between him and my relations there having often seen him in his place in the councils of his State, and knowing much of the deep love Tennessee bore the man and will bear his memory, makes it, perhaps, peculiarly proper that I should mingle my voice with his colleagues in mournful expression of their State's and country's bereavement How sadly frequent have become these occa sions in this hall 1 The mourning in which it is shrouded speaks gloomily yet eloquently of the memory of the late high-souled and chivalrous Vice President of the United States. The voice of eulogy of the lamented Atherton, and of sorrow for his death, still lingers here. To-day, for the third time during this session, (of yet but a few weeks,) we are mourners mourning the loss of the gifted and pure. The death of Mr. Campbell has fallen upon this House, upon the country, upon his family, with all the crushing and stunning lorce -of an unexpected bereavement His district, the country, had scarce heard the sto ry of his illness his wife, the wife of his love, had not heard the story of his danger; but his death is to fall upon her heart as the lightning of Heaven falls, shivering to ruin all its cherished hopes. It may carry with it a balm of some soothihg to that crushed and bleeding heart, to know that a nation appreciates highly his lofty talents, his extensive usefulness, his unwavering firmness, his unbending integrity, his pure patriotism, his charming social qualities; that his last hours were tended with all the kind ministrations of friendship, and his death grieved by all who knew him for they all loved him with all the agony of a personal bereave ment Beloved in his life, mourned in his death he has gone to that shadowy land from which there is no returning. He was cut down in the bloom of his manhood in the pride of his intellect in the ser vice of his country. How expressively sad this warning, teaching of the mutability of human life of how powerless are the earthly bands of love and of friendship to gave and teaching, too, how sincerely the good, and the wise, and the kind are deplored. When the sad tidings shall go through the land, with its wail of anguish, that Brookins Campbell is dead, Tennessee, his own beloved Ten nessee, will feel that she has lost one of the noblest and best of her noble and good sons. Tennessee, Alabama, New Hampshire, a bereaved trio, weep over their honored dead. -Missouri would mingle her voice and her tears with their voices and their tears. I second the resolutions of my honorable friend from Tennessee. The question was then Liken upon the resolu tions, and they were agreed to; and the House, thereupon, adjourned until to-morrowat 12 o'clock, The proceedings on the occasion of the funeral of Mr. Campbell are thus given by die Washington Sentinel, of Thursday, the 29th ult: Funeral of Hon. Brookins Campbell. There was no business of a legislative character transacted in Congress yesterday: the members of the branch es being engaged in payirg the last sad friendly of fices to the late Brookins Campbell, elected to the House of Representatives from the State of Tennes see.

Milburn, the chaplain of the House of Representative, then addressed the assem bly, forbearing to pronounce a panegyric on the de ceased, whose dust lay hefoie them, but delivering an eloquentand pointed addresson thedutics of the living.

Delay not; harbor not in your mind that sentence ot fools' philosophy, that a d'ueate will get well of itself, or that you can cure it with certain medicines for a few dollars. Beware how you tamper with your general welfare.

He had paid his Doctor's Bill, without any calculation of making another, thnking it was of no use; and no one ex pressed any hope of his recovery except a stranger, who happened to pass that way, and advised him to a different course of treatment, which has this recommendation, that in Jirewttit time it has made him feel like engaging in business.
