MR. STANTON AMONO THE " HARDS. "
.....--Mr. Stanton, our representative from the 11cm
jliisjCcpgressioBal district, lately vacated his scat
flu poiigrcia to pay a short visit to New York city,
rinh while there made a speech to tho worthies -who
I cotiiposo the "Young Men's Democratrc National
.Committee" of that dty ot disinterested .patriots
-'nmJ omee-hating .politicians. This speech was pdb-
lis-lu-d, the other day, with much gusto, byour
,'jtlighbor .or tie Banner, who very reasonably
'doubted "whether it will be reproduced ja a, single
w! mociatic -journal of Tennessee.' For one; 'wo
J should be veiy loth to bore our reader with po
much twaddle in a single dose. Tho.readers of the
7Aiflr, it may bo, are used to such doses, but our
Yonder?, we are vain enough to think, would hardly.
!.forj;ivo us ior the infliction.
' "Mr. Stastos has immeasurably lowered himself
-irronr estimation by this pilgrimage to tbo politi
teal Sodom to villify and misrepresenthisformerpo-
'litlcal "associates. "We had hoped that the fate of
Mr. S.'s first attempt at disorganization which fell
stui-uoni amiu tiio in-smothered ridicule and con
tempt of men who knew or supected tho author's
motivea and incentives would teach him a salu-
' tary lesson, But in this hope wo were deceived. ,
fThe fate of his first attcmpthas taught him nothing,
. or if anything, only enough to initiate him to still far-'
- thcr attempts at mischief. lib last act in tLe unwise'
career which he seems to have marked out for him-'
.8 :lf is more disreputable than tho first Mr. Stan
ton knowa enough about tho politics and politicians
.of New York city to laugh in bis sleevo at 'the
awkward patriotic airs which a few broken-down
hacks and disappointed office-seekers there are now
putting on unblushingly assuming to themselves
tho name, tho renown, and tho virtues of tho old na
tional democrats men tho latchets of whoso shoes
'thpae latter-day patriots are unworthy to loosen. .
He knows that, Instead of receiving our syrapa-1
thiea and encouragement, these agitators merit our
severest condemnation, and would, for a much less
offence, cogn-zablo by the laws of tho land, than
appropriating the good name and deeds of others,
bo convict! of felony before any jury of twelve
honest men. Air. Stanton knows tnat he is pan
dering to a monstrous deception when "he .recog
nizes smcli men as the impersonation of tho patriotic
and national sentiment of tho Stat of .New York.
Ho-knows them to be the veriest' spoilsmen, and
that the cause of their presentcourse is not national
and patriotic, but personal and unadultcratedly sel
fish. We haveno doubt that Vecould havo recog
nized in tho most violent and uncompromising of
the men whom he. addressed patriots whose solo
eruieof opposition to tho administration is to bo
found in the melancholy fact that the country is
not now enjoying thjo benefit of their invaluable
services in some fat office. .But it occurs to us that
this might havo been exactly the predicament of the
speaker himself. It has been freely asserted, and
not contradicted, to our knowledge, that Mr. Stas
ton wa an applicant for a foreign mission, in the
eaily part of the administration; and there are peo
iilo blunt and uncharitable enough to attribute to
his defeat thcahis present anomalous position. Mr.
S.'s fraternization with the disappointed spoilsmen
of Now York certainly gives somo countenance to
this suspicion. It is a. romarkabio coincidence, too,
that Mr. Stanton's brother, who is a representative
from Kentucky, and is said to havo been an appli
cant for office, occupies a similar position of antag
inmm to tho administration. Ono thing is certain,
tho opposition of both these gentlemen to tho ad
ministration is based upon its appointments to of
Now, wo aro ready to admit that tho admiuis
tration inijiht have made, and indeed has made,
much worse appointments than that of Mr.- Stan
tok or Ins Drotlicr wouia navo Been; out we aro
not willing to admit tho right of any good demo
crat to separate lrom his party, and sow the seeds
of discord and nischief, upon a motivo so trivial
and purely selfish. Offices are not principles, and
wc hoM that a man of firm principles w7l ioi ho-
come a uisorganizer because tie cannot Oecomo an
office-holder. Among tho unselfish and patriotic
masses of tho party, who care littlo or nothing
nbout tho distribution of tho spoils, Mr. Staxt'ox's
courje will find no apologists; and lie d6es well,
perhaps,-to seek 'oid and comfort" among tho dis
appointed spoilsmen of New York. If their fel
lowship can compensate him for the losa of the good
opinion of men who admirad and supported him
in times past, so bo it Wo venture to say that in

The Gadsden Treaty .does not seem in a.fair way

The news from Europe abates nothing of its
warlike character. The latest despatch from .Lon-
don announces that the Czar has violently rejected
tho proposition of the Four Powers. One of those
powers (Austria) is in my opinion, secretly in league
with Russia Those who know tho history of
the Czars, will scarcely expect the present
ruler of Russia to negotiate ina state of things
in which, upon the whole, he can claim no consider
able advantage as yet The entry of the allied
fleets into the Black Sea, indicates that Russia as to
naval operations there must remain inert and
blockaded, or run the risk of an encounter with a
superior force. As I have before remarked, the
great reluctance of England and France to take an
active part against Russia has arisen from'the dan
ger which they both descry Of giving strength to the
republican party in Europe. The progressive ideas
of this party aro moving European society to its
deen foundations, and a general war in Europe
t - I w, . t .
cannot fail to give it a degree of vitality, consisten
cy and vigor, such as it has never belore possessed.
For these ideas arc not now confined to rrancoas
in the French revolution of 1789, but pervade every
country of continental Europe possessing consider
able wealth and population, Russia excepted.
Revolutionary ideas havo not reached the masses of
Russian population either in Asia oc Europe.
Hence the peculiar position of things. It is safe
for Russia to do, as regards her own population.
what the other European Governments are reluct
ant to do from dread of internal commotions. Tho
ideas pervading Russia generally, (Poland alone
excepted,) arc to throw off the old despotisms of
tho Ivans, and of tho Tartars, who overrun Rus'
sia, and of tho.Maugols, who obtained a temporary
footing within her dominion. Thus we see causes
in cxislenco which favor tha continuance of the

THE STATE SENTINEL, & CO.
Messrs. Editors of Union and American :
Having this day learned that tho editor of the
Stat Sentinel, peisists in the, assertion made-some"
timo sinco, in reference to the character of Doctor
Sappixotox, in that paper, and refuses to bo cor
rected, or to make any restitution; I have deter
mined to show to the public the character in which
that gentleman now stands, as touching two points
contained in his issue of 4th Deconiber last:
I protest against; and deny the truth and sinceri
ty of the entire paragraph, but as brevity is impos
ed upon me, shall only for the present notice two
sentiments therein, and in accordance with their
true spirit shall designate them as follows, first and
And First -'That Doctor Sappikgtom sold a
a dime's worth of quinine for a dollar." This state
ment has not' the shadow of truth for its founda-
tion, I can see how a man ignorant of tho price,
quality, etc., of an article could make such an as
sertion, and should this be the case in reference to
this gentleman, the veil of charity would render
him an object of "commissoration, and give him an
immunity from all censure. But it would not ba
charitable to allow such a presumption in tho case
before us, since tho absence of ignoranco is implied
from the prominent position occupied, and the ef
frontery contained in- tho assertion. Then, as it
cannot be ignorance, it is a wilful and delibcralo
misrepresentation, and fabricated to subserve tho
interest of an inscrupuloiis individual. Now if
this be not the fact, may I enquire of thi3 gcntlo
man so learned in all minuto computations, and so
deeply sWKed in the component parts of "secret
medicines" to designate the time and place when
these pills did not moro than double the estimation
thus asserted. He has made the statement and I
pronounce it false; now como up and show your
beconuiy "That uoctou fcSArn.vGTOx agreed to
divulge his secret to every body for $20,00 a piece."
Although the author of this sentiment occupies a
position so eminent as almost to preclude the idea,
yet I canuot disclaim the belief that ho has a natur
al inclination and an inherent proclivity to falsify
and misrepresant Moloch in all his intercourse
with the family of man, never uttered a sentiment
more destituto of truth than tho one expressed
above. The contemptible idea of divulging the in
gredients of his pills lor$U UU apiece never en
tered his mind, and tho mind that originated the
idea is "fit only for stratagems, treason, and spoils."
As I am therefore fully acquainted with all the cir
cumstances I plainly and emphatically declare these
two assertions to be false. And m conclusion,
view them in what light you will, they arc but the
subterfuge of a little mindt and weak cause; and
now tho author shall stand before tho world, as a
baso villifier. and wilful defamer of one the latchct
of whoso shoes he is .not mortliy to unloose.

Mr. Wisener (Mr. Cook in the chair) offered an
amendment, having in view tho distribution of the
proceeds of the public lands among the States for
purposes ot .Education and internal improvements.
Mr. W. advocated his views at some length. Ho
was in favor of tho Homestead provision; he also
approved of the principle laid down in tho resolu
tion that the publio domain belonged to all th
States; but ho did not approve of dividing out tho
lands themselves among the otates; the only way
to secure to every citizen his fair share of his inter
ests in the domain wa3 to distribute tho proceeds
of the sales of tbo public lands. Had such a law
been passed twenty years ago, when thequestion
was first mooted wo would -now have an adequate
school fund, and an internal improvement lund.-
Thc principle embodied in his amendment was now"
looked upon with lavor by both whigs and uemo
crats; it was not now a party question; it had as
sumed a new phase.
Mr. "Wisener then proceeded to discuss the rela-
tivo merits of tho diilerent methods proposed as to
the management of the public domain: giving the
lands away to Railroad Companies, or only to ac
tual settlers: the operation of this method deprived
every citizen not an actual settler ot his fair pro
portion of the benefit and also deprived the State
ot her share of aid tor nor own internal improve
mcnts. He reviewed tho history of this question
for the past twenty years. Gen. Jackson had long
since proclaimed that the public lands ought to cease
t be a source ot revenue a3 speedily as possible.
When Air. W lsener concluded
Mr. Lamb offered an amendment and Mr. Clem
ons moved to lay it on the tablo. This gave rise to
considerable contusion and excitement about points
of order; altera good deal of discussion Mr. Lamb
obtained leave to explain hi3 resolution his amend

roads embraced in the "Omnibu3 Bill," and he urg
ed it on the calm and deliberato consideration of
tho House. West Tennessee had received but a
very modest sharo of the favors so liberally dis-
'tributed by tho General Assembly. He thought
sho was entitlcUto much more than she had got;
and it-'wotild be but simple justice, to grant her tho
aid she'now asks in favor of this road.
Mr. Hawkins wished to offer a few remarks on
the merits of the bill. It would be remembered
that during the d'scussion of the "Omnibus'' he
had offered an amendment to embrace the Tennes
see. Central Railroad, which had been voted to
Mr. Hawkirl3 went on to discuss the claims of
this road to tho attention of the House, and toils
proper Miare of State aid. He sustained the views
of Mr, Riehardson, and ho appealed to the friends ol
internal improvement and to the supportera of the
Omnibus bill to ootrm forward now and act on the
princip!es.whichh'ad governed their action in other
cases, and pass this bill.
Mr. Smith, of Hay wood, wished to call tho at
tention of the House to some facts in this conec
tion. He thought that we had done enough in
passing the "Omnibus," and here we aro called on
to do more, and it was asked as a boon to We3t
Tennsisee; ho did not believe "West Tennessee
wanted, it; -and he thought the vote3 of western
members would prove the fact; ho thought this was
a moonshine project the road had been chartered
ever since 1847, and howmuchhad been subscribed?
Only S225,000 1 He" had every respect for the en
orgy and activity of the President of the Road; but
he still thought the whole scheme a visionary one;
and in support of his views, Mr. Smith read an ex
tract from a report mado some time ago in refer
ence to the prospects of the road.
Mr. Hawkins rejoined with some warmth to the
remarks of the gentleman from Haywood. Tho
gentlemen who were opposed to this bill, were al
ready provided for with roads in their counties.
and now that they were surfeited, they did not want
any body else tQ have anything.
Mr. Richardson in some additional rematks,
showed what was the ground of opposition made
to this bill. Gentlemen were afraid that this road
would injure some of their own projects. But
that result had been rendered impossibible by the
amendment offered to tho second section. The
gentleman from Haywood had stated very honest
ly ,that he knew nothing about the road, a fact
which was plain enough fiom the gentleman's
speech. He had been astonished to hear that gen-
tleman attempt to cast ridicule and contempt on
the road and its able President by reading parts of
tho reports, (and Air. It pronounced a warm and
eloquent eulogium on the talents, foresight, energy
