himself "Mwiy Democrats." The subject is un

should say that our Washington correspondent is a

jioliiieal opinions are generally ours also. We do
not always agree with his opinions outside of poli

Wasiiixotox Cirr, Feb. 21, 1S54,
Elitori Union and American:
Yesterday began early in the morning a snow,
.which continued through the night of the same day
and i? the deepest I have ever known in ashing
ton. It is, upon an average, about eighteen inches
di-ep. We might almost say with Horace in the
Olh ode of his first book "Sec jam suslineant onus
stlea lutoninUs." "Nor do the laboring woods now
suitain their oppressive load."
The debate still proceeds in the Senate on the
NMiraka and Kansas bill. As I have stated in a
former letter, Mr. Wixlek made a most able speech
in its 'support; and Mr. lUncEn (whig) followed on
the ame side in a speech of distinguished ability.
,ThR"Snn!h is a unit upon this question. ' The
of the North insisted in ISoO that 3G
deg. 30m., the line of the Missouri compromise,
should bo set aiida in favor of the admission of
.Caliiornia with all her boundaries as defined in her
Tonstitution down to the 23d degree of North lat-
'ilmle. We who de?ired that 30 deg. 30m. should
le adopted, despairing in the case of California, to
Vri any ihing better, were utterly discomfited.
llutwheii as good christians and good patriots we
ai-nuiesoed in tho decision ol the Ueneral uovern
meiit. ami in the Compromise, we had a right to
rxpert that they who had used a temporary advan
tage to thwart ns in part of our wishes, would ob
s.-rve the rule of non-intervention which they had
n cognized in the compromise measures as a whole.
Hut with manj- of these men the evident rule has
been "Heads I win. Tales you lose."
" The Union of yesterday makas among others the

l'n lines such logic as tin? among the staple's of its op

Meiieit to civilization lies between totates ot tlie
Sea-board and the Mississippi, and our vast posses-
ions extending to the Pacific Ocean. Who can
behold the continuous and unbroken wave of emi
gration setting hitherward from the Old World,
with that steadv resistless course which knows no
relit ing ebb, and fail to realize the sublime necessi
ty which commands us to open all our doors to the
enlerprizt of our people, as well as to tlie hunted
and proscribed populations of other lands. Our
own march is westward and in a comparatively
short space of time, teeming Asia, India, and all
the regions for the trade of which a world contend,
will begin to pay kick with its enduring commerce,
the exertions now making by the American people
to redone them from the weight of barbarism which
for unwritten ages has brooded over them. It i3
not only a law of trade, however, that impels us to
reach the Pacific nations by the shortest routes by-
land, and the swiftest routes by sea. It may almost
be called a divine law; for in the track of our flag
and under the shelter oT our constitution, freedom
will follow and relipion will flourish."
.The Gadsden Treaty ha3 been referred in the
"Senate to tlie appropriate committees. By sorau
means unknown it Ins been published. It is ex
pected that the committee will report favorably to
'its latifactioni with the amendments proposed by
tho President, it certainly ought to be ratified. Ic
has. that property of reciprocal advantage which
' makes it fair for both parties. I have no doubt, a1?
I stated in a former letter, that there are various
firtile valleys in the country ceded by the Treat'.
There is no reasonable doubt that the Nebraska
ijtll will pass. "
The foreign news loses none of its interest Tho
battle of Citato appears to have been highly ad
vantageous to the Turks. If England and France
had stepped in with an efficient force and brought it
a-tively into tlie field, it seems to me that by this
time Russia might have been driven out ot tho
Principalities; and her lLet blockaded up in the
ports of the Black Sea. But the foar of revolution
m Western Eurone is the incubus which has
paralized so far tho exertions of Franco and Eng

Mr. Wood, or Fentress, offered an amendment,
providing for a survey of tlie Big South lurk ot
Cumberland river to determine how lar it was nav
igable. Mr. Richardson opposed the amendment, and ex
plained why: this very same amendment had
killed his bill for the Obion river in the other House;
he hoped the House would not adopt the amend
ment, and moved to lay it on the table, which was
not agreed to.
Mr. Wood, of Fentress, replied to ,Mr. Richard
son, and referred to the fact of tlie case at some
Mr. Richardson rejoined; he had no objection to
what the gentleman wanted, but he (Mr. W.) was
in error in his statement of the facts of the case
He (Mr. R.) had in hand a petition from hundreds
of citizens asking for the repeal of the declaration
that Rutherford's fork wa3 navigable. After some

The bill to amend tho Revenue Laws, (taxes
dealers in slaves five mills on the dollar, Arc.)
Mr. Smith, of Davidson, offered au amendment,
to allow uorporated towns to exclude traders from
such parts ot the town as they tlunic proper.
Mr. Brown, of Monroe, moved to lay it on the
table, and
Mr. Hart moved to indefinite postpone the bill
and amendments, and
Mr. Smith, of Haywood, made some remarks in
favor of the bill. He thought the sale of negroes
ought to be a taxable privilege, as well as the sale
of goods, &a, by merchants. Jle thought the bill
ou?ht to pass.
Mr. Tibbes opposed the bill entirely. Ho thought
it as reasonable to tax the buyer as the seller of a
nesro. He thought the bill bad.
Mr. Sykes combated the objections of Mr. Tibbs,
he (Mr. .) could not see the justness ol that gen
tleman s conclusions: sellin!; nesroes is as much a
privilege. a3 scHiiier coods.
Jilr. Lamb said that if this bill would repeal the
laws proliibitina: the importation of slaves into the
State, he would certainly oppose it It would be
a disgrace to this LeKislature and to the State to
' revive this odious traffic. (Mr. Lamb's remarks on
this part of the subject, were very earnest and
eloquent, and produced a marked effect on the
Mr. House also opposed the bill with equal force.
It was disgraceful to tax what were acknowledged
to be moral evils, such as tippling and slave dealing,
m order to raise revenue. He would support no
such measurers. After some further remarla by
Mr. Tibbs, Mr. llebb called lor the previous ques
tion which was refused, and
Mr. Sykes took the floor in reply to Mr. Lamb.
That centleman seemed to have a holy horror of
the traffic in slaves, but he (Mr. S.) thought that
gentleman was needlessly honihcd. JNegroes were
boutrht and sold every day in this fatate.
(Mr. Lamb rose to explain his remarks referred
to tlie importation ol slaves.)
Mr. Sykes resumed. He contended that this
thing was done week after week, and if tradere
would do it he wa3 in favor of taxing them for the
privilege. He did not consider this legalizing
crime; whether it was crime or not, it was permit
ted m Tennessee.
Mr. House replied to Mr. Sykes. His (Mr. S.'s)
argument was not sound suppose the case of
houses ot lil-lame without saying whether the
practice is criminal or not, the thing is done contin
ually, and why not levy a tax for the privilege? was
the gentleman prepared to bring in a bill to license
these houses for the sake of Revenue? the State
would grow rich upon it. Yet such was the princi
ple of the gentleman s arguments; it they were sound
iu one case, they were equally tound in another, and
murder, adultery, aud seduction inisrht be made a
source of Revenue.
Mr. Smith, of Haywood, and Mr. Smith, of Da
vidson, followed in support ot the bill.

nothing of the controversy between Mr. R. and

some opposition, that gentleman took the floor in
its defence, in one of his characteristic speeches,
which created much amusement, but failed to save

Mrs. Harris the wife of Dr. Hams, formerly

with attacks ot Erystpelat. Tbis circumstance is well known
to many of her friends and acquaintance, in Nashville and
vicinity. In one of these attacks. Dr. Harris, and one or
two other Doctors, were attending on her, and doing thoir
best, we suppose, but could not afford relief, when an old
acquaintance of hers, who is a physician, happened to call
to see her, and she said tohim, well, nnclo Nat, can't you do
something forme? Yes, said be, I think so. I have a dose
of DR. ARNOLD'S PILLS, and they will help you. She

highest character, in a superior sty le, greatly in advance of
any other series, and at a much cheaper rat. The facts
which they now present show that this pledge has been ful
ly redeemed
Tbis series hus been established three years, and now
amounts to eighteen volumes. It contains two thousand
sir hundred and seventy cases. One thousand, four hun
dred and twenty-seven of these are from the Hjuse of
Lords, Privy Council, Courts of Chancery, and the Admi
rably and Ecclesiastical Courts; and none cX these casos
have yet been published in any other series in this coun.
Of the remaining one thousand two hundred and forty
three cases in the Queen's Bench, Common Pleas, Exche
quer, and Court of Criminal Appeal, only fire hundred and
six have yet been published eUowhere in this country.
More than four-tiflhs of the cases published in this scries
areyet inaccessible to the profession in any other publica
tion. Tbe cheapness ot these Reports will be best seen by a
comparison with others. Tlie Reports cf the Courts l.st
nainb.1, for the three years preceding tbe commencement of
Ibis series, amount to fifteen volumes of tho Philadelphia
reprints, and are sold for about thirty-seven dollars and a
half. Theeighteen volumes of iheLawand Equity Report
embracing the same length of tiniej are sold for thirty-six
dollars, and contain all the cases, not only in the same
Court, but in allthe English Courts. For the last ten
years, thePiiiladrfphia reprints haveaveraged nearly five
volnmei per annum, making tbe price about twelredoltars
a year. For the price, the I air and Equity reports furnish
mure than double the nuaiber of cases; while, for s X da.
larsa year, ihe alternate law volumes can be purchaied,
containing, not only all the matter of the Philadelphia re
prints, but all the cases repot ted from the House of Lord',
Privr Council, Admiralty and Ecclesiastical Courts, togeth
er with many cases from the Common Law Courts not con
tained in the othrrreprints. For it should be remembered
in this co'nncclif.n, thai those publications do not contain
all the cases, even in tbe courts which they profess to report,
while this scries is complete. For example, tlie rlrstvoluine
ofEHis A Blackeurn's Queen's Bench Reports embraces
the period fioruNuv. 1;52, to .April 25, liw3, and
contains only eighty-tieo canes deiidcd within that
. time; while the loiw aud Equity Reports contain i,w hund
red and eight cases fmn the same Court, in the same po
riod. Only three-fourths of Ihe cases contained in !le fat
ter are reported in the former. It thus appears that tbe
Law and Equity ReporU are fuinishild at less than half the
price of any others.
As to the character of these Reports, tbe Publishers invite
tlie most critical comparison between the cases in this ser
ies which may be found in any other.
They also ossnre the profession, that the statement indns
triotfely circulated that these Reports wpl be soon discon
tinued is nnlrue. In the face of a most determined opposi
tion, and against the most unscrupulous detraction and mis
representation, they have gained a circulation which places
tbe enterprise beyond the possibility of failure.
