Regarding certain rem.irks in the Banner of Sat unlay.l49 under the caption, "A Case of Suppres sio Vcri," as designed personally to in3ult the edi tors of this paper, we felt it due to ourselves to rc- auest an explanation as to the spirit in which they were used, before making any special reference to them in these columns. It affords us satisfaction to state that, in the correspondence which took placetto editor of the Banner frankly assured us that the objectionable language was not tDded as personal to tho editors of this paf. . . r,-tW leferenco to tee tuese circumsiancini, nuy matter on our part would be improper. 03- Our Charleston paper of Saturday failed to . l, bv Monday night's mail, and we -nuMitlv without the proceedings in the r.

The Jonesboro' Democrat pays: llldll.Y 1UP0UTAST TO OUR RAILROADS. ClU'RCIl- wkix's Bill Passed. We learn from a letter lately received at this place from Washington city,that Con gress has passed an Act by which the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad and the E. T. and Georgia Rail road will bo allowed to pay the duty on the iron they may need, at Knoxville, and as the iron may bo wanted for the roads. Thi3 is an amendment to thegeneral warehousing system, which requires tho payment of duties at the seaboard, and all at one tiiuo. Under the amended warehouse bill our road rati order iron from Europe, and have it imported by way of Savannah, Ga., where the duties will be computed and settled, and tho iron be put under transportation bond to be delivered at Knoxville. Tho iron can then bo warehousod for the period of threo years, and can be withdiawn as needed, or wanted for use, and tho duties will be payable when so withdrawn. This is an important measure for the benefit of the East Tennessee roads, and too much credit cannot be awarded to Hon. W. M. Churchwell.of Knoxville, and tho other gentlemen who acted with him, for the able advocacy of the bill, and for effecting its pasiage into a law. Tho bill ts too lengthy for this paper and wo give all the leaditig points of interest to tho public Thus one by one we see the obsta cles to the completion of our road gradually disap pear by the aid and enlightened on.-igy of our pub lic men both in our State and national Legislatures. "SAVE ME FROM MV FIUEXDS!" Tho Rogersville 77m w, a whig paper, thus ad monishes the JUnner that there " somt "anxiety" about tho repeal of the Missouri compromise: ".The Republican Banner seems disposed to jest and'make light or the idoa that there is any osnite ment or oven interest felt by the people on the subject of tho Missouri compromise repeal, and tho natoage of the Nebraska bill. The editor says the peoplo in his quiet part of the country "know that the thunder that reaches them from Washington" is harralesi and meroly Manufactured for temporary ffect. Wo do not know how the matter is viewed bvtho people about Nasdivillo, or how they may bo affected bv thii thundering from tho "political me tropolis;" "but wo can speak of the effect it seems to have' in this section of tho country. Our people do think about it talk about it feel about it and doubtless would act about it if called on. The principles involved in tlio passage or rejection of this bill, is poraething which seriously affects iho interest of all southern people. Wo think tho "Banner" greatly mistakes or overlooks the inter ests of tlto South, in regard to this matter, and we think tho Knoxvillo Correspondent is worse mis taken when he slates that the great masses of tho people are opposed to the bill. Our observation has been just tho reverse."' . Rksiqnatiok oy Smcator Smith. The Hon. Truman Smith, through the columns of the Na tion Intelligencer, announces to the people of Con necticut that ho has resigned his seatas their repre sentative in the Senate of tho United States, the resignation to take effect from and after Monday, tho 24th proximo. Mr. Smith says he is impelled to tako this step by the urgency of his private af fair., which have been too long neglected on ac count of his public engagments. Moits Diplomatic Revelations. As an offset to tho publication in England of tho secret corres pondence the announcement is mado that tho Rus sian government will publish a batch of secret Eng lish letters on the Oriental question, and among them several from Trinco Ai.iiert. If these letters should establish tho Russian proclivities charged against tlio Princo consort, and to which was charged tlio halting iudecision of the Ministry in early stagoi of the quarrels, we may expect to see a great tumult of popular indignction in England which will add to the complication of tho Eastern question.

Senator Gwis has exhibited broad views of the subject, and accu mulated a great amount of interesting historical facts bearing upon it The Gadsden Treaty has been greatly and, in my opinion, injudiciously moauieu oy uio senate; dui I would prefer to take it in tho form which they have brought it, rather than not hare it at all. The Union of this morning, in an article on our Mexican relations, has again argued most conclu sively and eloquentlyiu favor of tho Treaty. For somo timo past there has been discussion on the question of tho employment of military men as superintendents of our armories. In a speech not long since, Mr. Stanton, of Keatucky, threw out insinuations against the War Department for its conduct in the employment of military men in these and somo other positions. It was proved, in the discussion which has been consequent, that the practice has been ouo of many years standing, and that the general results have been beneficial. The Union of tho Cth of April, in a leading article, dis cussed tho subject with great candor and ability, and showed that the charges made were ground less. Consequently, the clamor against CoL Jkf- fersok Davib is proven to be destitute of any solid foundation. The tenor of die foreign news continues of tho. most warlike description. Already the prospect of a certain and sanguinary war has unfavorably af fected stocks; and when the war shall have lasted sir months, we shall find them falling in a mannor that will bring ruin on speculators, and impair pn- vate fortunes to a considerable degree. While I earneitly hope and expect this war to result in tho advancement of tho republican cause in Europe, it is plainly our duty to use our utmost endeavors to maintain peaco and preserve a strict neutrality, And we may rest assurod that such aro the pur poses and views of President Pibroh and his Cabi net- In my letter to you of tho 10th of March, a typo graphical error occurred, which I intended to cor rect in mv last, but forirot it. I seldom correct such errors, as they aro usually such as tho intelli eent reader will detect without much difficulty But as the one to which I refer might subject me to cavil, I state that the date of the Baltimore Sun from which tho extract of the Pope s manifesto was made, was eighteen hundred and forty-nine, not eighteen hundred and forty-six. A compost tor setting up thi3.late in figures, may easily mako this error, as in your type an inverted nine (9) will mak a six (G); and, indeed, this is the case with much type in common use. I knew it to bo nine, and I believe I po wrote it. It was copied from the S'm of April 0th 184D (eighteen hundred and fmty-nine.) A steamer is now duo from Liverpool, or nearly so which will probably bring news of great inter est. Sulpicius. PSf All accounts from California confirm the statements made by our San Francisco correspond ent some time ago, viz: that El Dorado is so flood ed with merchandise of all descriptions that goods cau not only be bought cheaper there than in East ern markeU, but thero is no demand at all corres ponding to the supply. Wo seo tho clipper ship, Bald Eagle, is on her way back from California, with a large consignmeut of articles which were originally shipped from tho Atlantic States, and failed to find a market at San Francisco. Among the items on her manifest are 2,000 bbls. flour, a quantity of brandy, cigars, iron, shovels, paper, a largo amount of merchandise, &c, &c These arti cles will have traveled, including the trip both ways, some twenty or thirty thousand miles, before finding a final market. Exchange. Sleepinq Accommodations on Railroads. The patent reclining seats introduced by the Baltimore and Philadelphia railroad, into their night cars, are attracting the deserved encomiums of travellers. The patent seats have also been introduced upon the Wilmington and Raleigh, and the Wilmington and Manchester Railroads, and aro all that is claim ed for them. There can be no question of their general adoption in cars running at night. "It is generally supposed," says Mr. R. E. Pell, "that fish are not possessed of the sense of smell; from the following experiment, I am convinced they are: I placed a hook, well baited with a angle worm, enticingly before a perch weighing one and a half pound; ho did not take tho least notice of it. It was withdrawn, and a drop of the oil of rho dium brought in contact with it, when it was dropped very carefully several feet behind him; he immediately turned and seized the bait. This ex periment was several times repeated with like suc cess. It has been denied that fish have tlie sense of hearing. I find many varieties very sensitive to noise, and by numerous experiments am convinced that their scn?e of hearing is acute. The Washington Union, of Sunday last, hays: "It is expected that on Monday next the great Duke of Allegron case will be argued before the Supremo Court Tho Duke received from the Crown ol Spain a grant of millions of acres of land in Florida; but it was annulled in the treaty made during the administration of President Mor.roo. by John Quincy Adam?, Secretary of State, and Don Luis De Onis, envoy extraordinary and minister jJenipotentiary from the Court of Spain. Itiscon tended that tho parties negotiating could not legally annul the grant, and the heirs of tho Duke claim that, of right, the title is vested in them." A Tall Splcclation. We aro informed, says tho Cincinnati Columbian, that a certain houso in this city has in serious contemplation a speculation, which in vaslnes's of conception is fara-headof any thing that has preceded it oven in this ago of gigan tic ideas. The plan is un investment in bulk pork of one million thousand'pounds, which at the pres ent value of tho article would amount to $.17,fi00, 000, three times tho value of all tho pork packed in the regular way, in tho Western States for export Visiting Cards Extraordinary. A gentleman had stepped into a carriage to mako his New Year's vitits, when he perceived that he had forgotten hi.s visiting cards. He immediately oulerod his new groom to go and get them from tho mantle pieco in the dining room. The servant did as ho was ordered, and the gentleman commenced his visits, the footman leaving his cards. After some time had passed, ho asked the groom if there were still many cards loft. Sir, answered tho latter, I have still the king of spades, the king of hearts, and tho knavo of clubs. The gentleman extinguished. Cheap Postage. A letter from Washington in forms us, that it is tho intention of Mr. Olds, tho Chairman of tho House Committee on Postal Affairs, to introduce a bill fixing the rate of letter postage at one cent, in all cases to bo pro paid, and no letter to be sent from au office unless the postage shall be so paid. The son of Coramodoro Vanderbilt, a young man about 22 years old, wa3 recently arrested in Wash ington for obtaining money, to tho amount of? 1G0, under a false pretence. He was committed to jail. When it is considered that his fattier is a million aire, the circumstance is strango enough. iRrsnviEN in TnE British Army.

Wo learn from passengers whocamo down the river yesterday, on the Pittsburg packet, that as the boat neared the town of Dover. Ky., about 12 miles below Mays ville, a tremendous conflagration was seen to be in progress. The boat was landed, when it was dis covered that two of tho principal business squares of tho town had been consumed, and the devour ing element was still making terrific progress. There were no fire engines in the place, and water being scarce, tbo'citizohs despaired of saving any portion of the town. Several tobacco warehouses were consumed with their contents, besides stores, groceries and private residences, tho occupants of which had lost nearly all their goods, furniture, The boat left when two-thirds of tho town was burnt down, and the llro was still raging. The loss Is ostlmated at being ovor one hundred thousand dollars. The particulars of this conflagration will probably reaeh u to-morrow. 1. S. Since writinsr the above, we learn bv tho arrival of the Maysvillo packet, that the Dover Hotel, four largo tobacco warehouse, filled with "to bacco, seven stores, and hvo groceries were de stroyed. The fire was arrested about four o'clock ye?terday morning. Only a few dwellings were saved. Dover had a population of about seven huudred. Cincinnati Gazette, CM. CoconiNO in Consumpiioh. A gentleman called upon us recently, who actually escaped from tho faugs of consumption some years ago, and wo aro induced to present the circumstances: i . ,, "iou Bpeas: oi couginug continually:. L,et mo suggest to you the query, whether this i3 not unne cessary and injurious, l nave long been satislied. from experience and observation, that much of the coughing which precedes and attends consumption is voluntary. Several years ago, I boanled with a man who was in the incipient stages of consump tion. I slept in a chamber over his bed-room, and was obliged to hear mm cough continually and dis tressingly. I endured the annoyance, night after night, till it led me to reflect whether something could not be done to stop it 1 watched the sound which the man made, and observed that he evi dently made a voluntary ellort to cough. Aftei this 1 made several experiments on myself, and fouud tfiat 1 could prevent tnyselt trom coughing, sneezing, gaping, &c, in case of the strongest pro pensity to theso acts, by a strenuous efforts of the will. Then I reflected that coughing must be very irritating and injurious to the delicate organs that are concerned in it especially when they are m diseased siate. hat cau be worse for ulcered bronchia, or lungs, than tho violent wrenching of a cough. It must bo worse than speaking. A sore on any part of the body, if it is constant ly kept open by violent usage, or made raw again by a contusion just when it is healing (and of course begins to itch,) will grow worse and end m death. Certainly then a sore on the lungs may be expected to terminate fatally, if it is constantly irritated, and never sullered to heal; and this, it seems to me, is just what coughing does for it On the strength of such considerations as these, 1 mado bold to ask tho man if he could not stop coughing. He an swered no. I told him what I thought about it, as above. Ho agreed to mako a trial; and on doing so ha found to his surprise that he could suppress his cough almost entirely. The power of the will over it increased as lie exorcised it, and in a lew days he was mostly rid ot the disposition to cough. His health at the same time, evidently improved, and when I last saw him, he was in strong hopes of getting out ol deatli s hands. This occurred eighteen years ago, and the man comes round now, au active business man. averring that he has not had a sick da' since. Provincial 11 esleyan. Spiritualism in Jjoston. Un iriday evening, in East Boston, the harmony of a meeting of spirit ualists was disturbed by a husband insisting that his wife, who formed one of a circle, should accom pany him up stairs to their own chamber. He not only expressed his disbelief in the new faith, but denounced those who wasted their time in what ho considered foolish experiments. His wife obeyed reluctantly. After their departure, the circle was re-formed, and several communications wero re ceived from the spirits. Tho spirit of tho lady's farther wrote, by one of the mediums, that her husband had a dagger in tho chamber, and at a certain hour would take her life, if not prevented, and advised that three watchmen should be sent for without delay. The advice was acted on, and three watchmen wero placed outside of the chamber, one of them armed with an axe, ready to burst the door open at the slightest cry for help. Auother com munication commanded that two more watchmen should bo sent for, or the lady would surely be murdered, as her husband had a pistol in the room as well as a dagger. The watchmen came, and ranged themselves with tho others, ready for a rush lo the rescue. Hearing voices outside, the husband opened the door and inquired the causo of such an assemblage. Explanations wero given. To allay their fears, ho invited tho watchmen to enter the chamber and search overy part of it, which they did, but found neither pistol nor dag ger. The spirits, however, insisted that murderous weapons were concealed, and urged the watchmen to remain. Unable to reason with the spiritulists, and unwilling to create more excitement, the hus band permitted his wife to rejoin the mediums in another room, while he retired lo rest But, not withstanding this concession, the watchmen were not permitted to depart for several hours. These facta were communicated to us by a person who saw them; and we state, from personal knowledge, that the family in which they occurred is ono of the mo3l respectable in East Boston. Having paid some attention to spiritualism, wo at'se those whose nerves are not strong enough to enablo them to take a cold shower-bath in tho dead of winter without wincing lo avoid spiritual circles. Boston Atlas. Tns LorrY and the Lowly. The Washington Union indulges in tho following sensible remarks: "Who is he, no matter how exalted hi.s position, who has no relatives in the humblest? The writer has himself seen members of the immediate famil ies of two Presidents of this Republic toiling for their support in the severest of employment"; and it is probable that no man has occupied the White IIouso who has not been aware that many of his kindred, unless relieved by himself, wero reckoned among tho poor if uot tho honest of the land? Tho only brother of Clay was a cabinet-maker; Web stor the giant of statesmen, and the ornament of his country, had a brother-in-law who never learn ed to read until after completing the period of three score and ten, and a majority of the first statesmen of the present timo are the energetic and ambitious sons of "poor but honest parents.

A huge anchor lying high and dry on a hill three hundred feet high and one thousand feet from the sea, at Sinope, fearfully records the terrific explo sion of one unfortunate ship, while the half finished framework of a new Turkish corvette on tho stocks which escaped all damago during and after the action, forms a strange contrast with all this havoc and ruin.

The work is beautifully printed, and we think may chal lenge competition in execution with any work ever printed in the Stite. It does equal credit to the skill, "the laste and the enterprise of Messrs. J. L.

The credit is due to our friends of the Union and American of having proven themselves successful pieneers in bringing out in an enduring form the productions of one of our most distinguished and eloquent statesmen and orators.

Most of the speechesof Gov. Brown made a pro found impression upon the public mind at the per iod of their delivery, and many had an electrifying influence upon popular opinion, and achieved for their author, the highest reputation as a public de bater and political controversialist. Yet they were consigned to the oblivion of those fugitive contem poraneous records the public journals which are preserved by but tew, and then tor a short period only. From this transitory and precarious condi tion, they- have been rescued by the enterprising publishers of the Union and American, who have at the same time exhibited their State pride, their admiration for the finished productions of an ora tor and statesman, ol lar moro than medium abili ty. and their disposition to do justice to one whoso power has been felt by friends and foes in many a hard fought contest. Tho admirers of Gov. Brown have reason to bo thankful for the example thus set o trust that tho enterprise may prove suc cessful enough to induce them to produce the works ot other eminent men of Tennessee who liave fig ured conspicuously in our political history.
