The True Whig has coinuienceil preacliing up
the beauties of "uuion" and ''harmony" to its-party
friends. It offers the olive branch to those southern
whigs who have opposed the Nebraska bill, and in
vites them to join the whig friends of that measure
UDon the "let alone" nlatforni. It desires that the
Nebraska discussion shall cease among the w higs of
the south, and hope3 that by casting out this apple
of discord southern whiggery may again be made
whole. We protest that we would not maliciously
throw any obstacle in the way of our neighbors
wishes in this matter. f he can unite the whig
party of Tennessee upon the "let alone" platform,,
wo are content. Wt would much rather see the
whips of Tennes3ce standing upon tliat platform,
than co operating, as many of them now undoubt
edly are, with the abolitionists and free-soilera who
havo sworn eternal hostility to the sou k and 1 er
But the True Whig, before it attempts to gather
up and cement together tho fragments into which
Tennessee whiggery is now broken, would do well
to ask itself the pertinent question, Cui bono.
What good will be accomplished by such a hollow
union as it proposes? What is the use of uniting
the whigs of Tennessee, or the whigs of the south,
for the purpose of fighting against tbo democracy
of the south, when tho northern branch of the whig
party openly, spurns all fellowship with southern-
whigs, except upon terms the bare mention of
which is sufficient to make every southern man's
blood boil witlj indignation ? Would the True Whig
unite its southern friend3 that they might give aid
and comfort to those whigs of the north who have
raised the standard of undisguised hostility to the
south? If not, why labor to bring about a hoi
low truce between the two sections into which
the whig party of the south is now divided? What
can southern whiggery hope to accomplish hy itself?
Nothing literally nothing! Without the aid of its
northern branch, the whig party of tho south is ut
terly powerless. If that aid cannot be obtained
save upon terms as dishonorable to southern men
as they are unpatriotic, why strive to keep up a
- whig-orgauization at the south? Is the hope of be
ing able to ha: rass and embarrass the democratic
party in its patriotic efforts to maintain the consti
tulion, and the equal rights of the south under it;
a suflicent inducement ? It may be such to a few
southern whig leaders who care more for party
than far countrj', but it caunot be such to the hon
est masses of the southern whig party. They will
ask for better reasons before the breach which now
separates the whigs of the south can be closed.
The True Whig cannot deny our statement that
the northern whigs have openly declared the disso
lution of the whig party. The leading whig jour
nals of the north have, in the m09t scornful and
bitter terms, renounced the fellowship of every
southern whig who supported the Nebraska bill.
They have unblushingly called for a union of the
whigs aud abolitionists " that freedom may have
her phalanx as well as slavery." The only leading
whig paper at the north, so far as we have observ
ed, which opposes an immediate separation from
the wtiigs of the south, is the Boston Atlas. That
paper is still willing to fellowship with the whigs
of the south upon certain conditions. These corv
ditions arc the only ones which the whigs of the
north will vouchsafe to their southern brethren.
What they are, our whig neighbor can learn from
the following article, which we find in the Atlas of
the 2d inst. If the True Whig can stomach these
conditions, thoie may be some reason for the continu
ation ofits efforts to unite the whig party of the south.
But in that event it must discard its "let alone'
platform, and raise the standard of " Bqieal and
Restoration." It must advocate the policy of re
warding fcuch men as Bell, and Cctlom, and HrxT,
and such newspapers as the Nashville Banner, Lou
isville Journal and N. O. Bulletin. If the True
Whig cau undertake) this pleasant and patriotic
task, tho sentiments of the aiticlo below will not
be so offensive to it as we liopo they may be to
southern whigs generally :
Fiotn the Boston Atlas, June 2.
. Leaving our neighbor to recover as best he may,
from his terrible vi:ion, which his disordered fan
cies have conjured up, let us con? ider, for a moment,
the po-ition ol our part ', and what h our best pol-
. . r i... .
icy ana our uuty ior uiu iiiiuru. e nave just pass
eil through the consummation of critical events.
which have left a lasting impress upon those in
store. The national whig party has received a dead
ly blow, in the house of its friends. Whig Senat
ors of Maryland, North Carolina, Louisiana, Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida; and whig
Representatives of Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee,
and other States at the South, have deliberately,
with full warning of the fatal consequences of the
step, dcertcd the whig party, and plotted, con
spired, caucusscd and voted with its direst foes.
They nave leii. us aim 5U"K "vu mi- tuemy.
They have not only betrayed us by voting against
us, but their votes in both Hoimjn of Congress
have been decisive of a result inconsistent with
honor or good faith. Henceforth we can have no
action or fellowship with them. 1 hey are not only
not of u, but they are against us. They have shown
that the mo3t binding obligations of compacts and
compromises have no weight with them. We can
no longer repose any confidence in their honor or
good faith. We can no longer hold any political
fellowship with them. Their party is that of slave
ry propagandist baied on btoken pledges, violat
ed compacts and dishonored covenants. With that
faction the laitniui wing party oi uie nation nave
no sympathy, and ran only wage determined war
fare, Uencelortll. Uie Jiesiorauvit or me .msfouri
Compromise and the RKl'KAL of the Nebraska
bill, are among the great and paramount questions
of Uie day. We can hope for nothing but opposi
tion from those who have already octroyed us.
Thev have chosoii to an ay themselves as our eno-
mies. They have left us no alternative. But is it
therefore neccsary that we suouui uescri the hon
ored name under which the whig party has so long
acted together, through good report and through
vil report? And why should we abandon it?
This is a question that demands our gravest consid
eration. Unon this new issue, the whole whirr
party at the North have stood as firm as a rock of
adamant. Not a single member cf Congress, not a
single whig press, not a member ol the party any
where in any free Slate wavered a moment. On
the coutrarj', all previous disagreements were for
gotten, all jarring strifes hushed; uuion whigs and
nnti-cornpromiso whigs forgot their differences, and
tied with each other in their fealty to honor and
good faith. Nor were they quite alone. There
was still a small but most noble band of Southern
:luvalry who dared to be true to the promptings of
honor. The gallant veteran of Tennessee, John
Bell, will, Culioni, Etheiidge, Taylor, and Bugg.of
the Howe, Hum, ol Louisiana, Rogers and l'ur
tear, of North Carolina, and Franklin, of Alary land,
were proof attains all the seductions of power or
. the promptings ol sectional prejudices. What shall
we do with these noble spirits? Are we to take
such a course as shall drive them back to die wall,
and leave them alternative which they can suc
cessfully meet These, are considerations well
nuiuij. uui iuioi, mature ueiiuerations.
Again, ill tho Southern States we are proud to
say there ure very many tug presses, and we are
fain also to believe, a respectable portion or the
Whig voters, who have stood true to the. Compro
mise of 1S20, and have not followed the treaehe
lous and fatal course of those who have betrayed
us. Such journals as the New Orleans Bulletin,
Bee and Crescent, tho Nashville Banner, the .St!
Louis Intelligencer, the Louisville Journal and Cou
rier, and many more wo might name, have been
loyal and have nobly stood true to principle. Can
we part company with these? It may be that the
faithless and dishonored Whig Senatoisaud Repre
sentatives who have betrayed their party may find
their meet reward from their constituencies. It
may be that the Badgers, the Pearces, and the Jem
my Joneses will be replaced by menlikc Bell and
Hunt, and Cullum, good and loyal men and faithful
Whigs. It may be that theyjvho havo lood true
will be rewarded withfliie renewed copGdeuce of

party lines and seeking to reorganize another upon.
Its ruins? This is a subject, to say the least, worthy
of very gravo and sober consideration, and for only,
the most mature and deliberated action. It may
be found to be the only alternative with the com
plete ascendancy in the nation of that false democ
racy which leagues with slavery propagandists, to
trample upon compacts and compromises, and wara
upon the best interest of the country. When that
shall have been demonstrated, it will be time enough
to decide upon what should be done to avert that
lalamity. isut that this must necessarily be so,
does not yet appear. If the Whig party of the
North shall but plant itself at once and in good
season, upon the solid and impregnable ground of
KErEAL and Restoration, they cannot fail to sweep
every Northern State, to retain a large aud respecta
ble minority in the South, and to legain their as
cendency in the nation. Let us take this ground
every inhere. Let us raise aloft the banner of vindi
cation of compacts of war with propagandist, and
the people will rally to our standard, and a glorious
triumph will reward our euorts.
APPEARANCES ARE OFTEN DECEPTIVE.'
The Washington correspondent of Uie I'ennsyl
vnian illustrates the truth of this remark by givng
a "charcoal sketch" of tho Hon. A. II. Stephen?,
of Georgia, who is admitted be one of the ablest
members of the present Congress. lie thus de
scribes the honorable member :
"And yet this ungainly looking individual with
head and face constructed contrary to the rules of
nhvsiognomy and phrenology, is considered by
many the ablest member of the House, and of a
House too, that can ooast 01 tne pest, minus 01 tne
country. Air. Stephens is slightly aDove tne meu
mm height, and jmnfutly thin in appearance.
His head is small and Hat; his forehead low and par
tially covered with straight, black, lustre-lacking
hair; and his cheeks thin, wnnKied, and ot parch
ment texture. His walk, his features, bis lijiure,
bespeak trreat physical emaciation. You look
vain for some outward manifestation of that tow
ering, commanding intellect which ha3 held tho
congregated talent of the whole country spell bound
for hours. It is not in the eye, for it is dull and
heavy. It is not in tho face, for it is meaningless.
It is not in the voice for it is shrill and sharp; but
still you feel convinced that theleeble, tottering be
ing before you is all brain brain in the head, brain
in the arms, brain in the legs, brain in the body
that the whole man is charged and surcharged with
the electricity of intellect that a touch would
bring forth the divine spark!"
IS?" Tho Frankfort Commonwealth gives the
following statement of the case of Southard vs.
Russell, which was recently decided in the U. S.
Supreme Court, in favor of Russell:
Gilbert C. Russell was the owner of 11G acres of
land adjoining the city of Louisville, which he had
purchased Irom JohnJbloyd, ol lrginia.lorSlJlluO.
On the 24th of September, 1827, Russell being
pressed for money, conveyed the land to bouthard
lor $z,UUU in cash, and two claims in suit, amount
ing to $2,929 81, making altogether 4,829 81, by
deed absolute on its face. An agreement was sign
ed by the parties at the. same time by which South
ard agreed to resell and convey to the said Russell
the farm, upon the payment of $4929 81, within
four months, with interest from date. On the 20th
of September, 1847, Russell filed his bill in the Cir
cuit Court of the United States for Kentucky dis
trict, to redeem the land upon the ground that the
transaction was a mortgage. Southard contended
that it was a conditional sale. The court, on final
hearing, dismissed Russell's bill, and he appealed
to the bupreme Court ot the United btates.
That Court at its December term, 1851, (12 How
ard, 139,) reversed the decree and decided that Rus
sell had the right to" redeem. Upon the return of
the mandate to the Circuit Court, Southard filed a
bill ot review alleging that the principal witness
for Russell was suborned. The allegations of the
bill were denied, and Southard's review was dis
missed : and on appeal the Supreme Court, at its
present term ha3 affirmed the decree dismissing it.
Nothing now remains to be done except to settle
the account of rents, profits, and improvements.
The land is estimated variously from $120,000 to
$150,000, after settling the accounts of rents, im
provements, interest, aud original sum advanced by
We take it that this is destined to be a leading

New Yokk, June 5.
The cause of the riot yesterday was the appear
ance of a procession of New York Native Ameri
cans, against whom the Irish located m the imme.
diate neighborhood had a grudge in consequence of
the previous faunday s proceedings.
Ihe procession trom JNew lork arrived some
time before the sermon commenced. They nuin
bered probably about a hundred or more, and coun.
termarched up and down Atlantic street, waiting
the arrival ot the preacher.
Upon the preacher's arrival, they came up and
stood until the sermon was over, when they pro
ceeded down Smith street toward the Cattiarine
street ferry in the same order that they came.
About noon, a crowd began to assemble, and at
5 o'clock it numbered over G,000. The Mayor,
Chief of Police, and the whole disposable force
under their commaud, were present.
During tho afternoon there was a slight distur
bance on the corner of Smith and Atlantic streets,
in which a number of white hats were knocked off.
The offenders were promptly arrested
The New York procession, while proceeding
down to the Jerry, were followed by a large
crowd. Tney walked in an orderly and peaceabli
manner, and occasionally cheers and hoots greeted
That was all until they reached Main, Water, and
the streets leading thereto, where an immense
number were congregated, and about half of the
procession had passed Water street, when a gen
eral cry came from the Irish, "Hip, hip! Now, go
in! Come on, boi'sl"' and with that came showers
of stones and brickbats, which were leveled at the
A grand rush was now made, but tho line of the
procession remained unbroken.
They marched to the ferry-house gate, and en
tered with military precision. As they were as
saulted, they fired pistols at those who assaulted
them. It is probable that about thirty shots were
fned. Pistols were also fired from htmse-tops, and
stones fell like hail in every direction.
One of the ferry-boats took off a load of the
New Yorkers, but the pilots of the two remaining
boats, seeing what was going on, would not enter
the docks. They finally entered the slip, and all
those wot arrested were permitted to take their de
parture. Ihe police had hard work, hen one would
attempt to take a man into custody, he was sure
to be beaten with clubs. Several were badly hurt.
Their clubs were used freelj', and they knocked
don n all who resisted them.
The military came upon the ground, after the
listurbance. They had been stationed at the arm
ory all the afternoon, awaiting orders.
'ihe mayor came down Mam street, reading the
riot act. The sheriff was also on the ground. The
military were stationed so as to prevent any further

Scrcical Operation. A most skillful surgical
operation was performed yesterday by Dr. C. S.
Fenner, of this city, the subject being a lady from
the country, over the pupil of whose eye a large
cataract had grown, entirely obscuring the sight.
The cataract was one of the largest we had ever
seen. Dr. Fenner succeeded in removing it in a
very few minutes, to the admiration of every one
present tho medical gentlemen present pronounc
ing the operation "beautiful. After the remova
of the cataract, the pupil of the eye became clear
and brilliant, and the power of vision strong.
We understand that Mr. John H. More-
head, residing some ten miles south of thi3 place,
died on. Friday morning last, under very singular
circumstances. He arose in the morning, appa

tor a short time and partaking ot his breaktast, he
ordered his negro man to bring a long bench into
the house, saying that he expected to die soon and
wished to be laid out upon the same; he then or
dered him to firo off a gun, as he wanted to see
whether he could hear the report. Alter this, his
wife asked him if she should send the negro to
work in the field; he replied no; that ho was go
ing to die, and wished the negro to slay and help
to lay him out He then laid down, aud expired
soon after. Paris (ATo.) Mercury.

And shall we dwell, like turtle doves,
In Cupid's fairy bowers?
"Yet does thy proud papa look stern,
And call me brainless fool !
Ue dreams not that a ladder, love,
Suspended from the room above
Could brave parental rule,
Then grant me, Angelina, dear,
The bliss, for which I sigh,
Nor leave thy trembling victim here
To pine, to sink, to die."
"0. George Augustus Fitz Green Brown,
Your title I admire,
For this I brave the daily frown,
And seek the bitter hate to" drown,
Of my indignant' sire;
For this I mope, refuse to eat,
And faint full twice a day.
That pa may hear the neighbors cry,
'Poor Angelina May.'
"Yet all I do isdonein vain,
The baits are wasted quite,
And thus in dread suspense I sit,
And rack my brain, and tax my wit,
From early morn till night;
But now I'm all your own my love,
My George Augustus Bronn
Yet be a little careful when
You take the ladder down."

to the astonishment of every one, louder than ever

I have used Dr. M'Lane'a Worm SpcciHc in my private
practice, and am prepared to say that the unparalleled suc

and adults, induces me to say the most in its favor of any
specific or patent medicine ever before brought to my no
tice. The mode of administration, tho smallness- of the
dose, and the certainty of its efficacious effects, give.it in
my opinion, a decided advantage over any other medicine
of the the kind before the public.

Snrc Hope for the Sick I Dr.Moass's Invigorating
Elixir, or Cordial, forces its way into popularity by its
marvelous cures. It needs no bolstering with fine writing
or elaborate praise. All that its proprietor has to say to
the world is, try it. He defies any one who Ka tried it to
question its value, or deny its all-powerful properties. The
preservation of countless lives, the health and vigor of
thousands, depends upon the extent or its use. It is fear
lessly pronounced an unerring remedy for every disease
not organic of the stomach, the liver, the nerves, and the
other organs which make up the machinery of life. Asa
preventive, a restorative, a permanent stay and support to
all who are weak by nature, or debilitated by sickness, it
stands alone and unapproached. There are at this mo
ment multitudes languishing on sick beds, or moving
listlessly about our streets scarcely half olive, that would
be rendered new creatures, that might awake to a new ex.
istence, corporeal and mental, by the aid of this mighty
renovator of body and mind. Let the dyspeptic, the ner
vous, the relaxed, the broken down, the hopeless tut it.
Tbe first bottle will give them an inkling itT its virtues.
The Cordial is put up, highly concentrated, in pint bot
tles. Price three dollars per bottle, two for five dollars,

From Harper's Magazine.
"Mrs. Partington" is an original caeation: and the tm
one can be detected from her numerous imitators in a mo
ment. The Rev. Sydney Smith first introduced thiscotabfa
lady to the public, but the Boston I'ost is the only journal
which records her original sayings and doings, which ar
only excelled if indeed they are excelled at all by Mrs.
Lavinia Ramsbottom, the illustrious protegs of tbe witt r
Theodore Hook. Here are two of her late "utterances
which are quite as good in their way as anj thing m Madan.d
Rams bottom's letters from Rome cr Paris:
