WHAT THE NORTHERN WHIGS PROPOSE.
Southern whigs are studiously kept in the dar
by their own papers as to the measures P'2!!!h
by the northern branch of the party. "
, . when forced to notice
cm whiff papers argue only, WIK:"
the subect at all, tfat the northern deo
as unsound on the subject of slavery as the north-
,;TMs is untrue, and they know it
There is not a whig organization which is not anti
slavery and which does not propose active agita-
- ronp.il of the " Nebraska iniquity, as
tliev call it. There is not a northern democratic or
ganization which does propose this repeal, and
scarcely one which does not defend and support
the act as just and proper. It is this very ques
tion which is enabling the whigs of the northern
States to carry most of those States in the elec
tions this fall. The whig papers of the South are
not so ignorant asjiot lo know this. Yet the fact
is concealed from their readers, and they chuckle
over these abolition triumphs, and rejoice at whig
successes, achieved solely by an alliance with the
worst species of abolitionism. It cannot oe possi
ble that the Southern whig people will always re.
main blind to these facts. VTe ask these whig peo
ple to read the following extracts from a late arti
cle in the Boston Atlas, the leading whig paper of
Massachusetts. And we tell Southern whigs that
the sentiments of thi3 article are the universal
the unanimous sentiments of the whig party of
the northern States. We leave it to their own
self-respect to answer if they can continue to work
kindly in the whig harness with leaders who hold
these views :
" The Whig3 do not allow, like the Democrats, a
central master at the White House to "crush out"
the independence of the States. They do not feel
willing to surrender their manhood to any one am
bitious leader, or to advocate the extension of sla
very at the bidding of any tool of the South. The
Whigs are in favor of the right of private judg
ment, and disdain to follow the lead of any one
man or set of men.
"The Whig3 throughout the North are opposed
to the spread of that institution in view of which
Jefferson said, that he trembled for his country
when he considered thatGod was just Andbeing
thus ormosed. thev will use the most efficient mea
sures to resist the'grasping spirit of those who are
striving to unhold it But the efficiency of the
means to be employed must depend upon circum
stances. The most efficient means in one State
may not be the most efficient in another. In Mas
sachusctts the Whifrs are the dominant party, num.
berinc twice as many as the Fresoil party, and
tlicre seems to be no good reason why they should
give up their organization, and Jorm a new party,
when that new party could take no other ground
with any hope of success in opposing the encroach
ments of slavery, than that already adopted by the
Whigs. We, like our brethren in other States, are
resolved to assert our manhood, and strive to place
a delegation in Congress which will be proof against
temptation, and which will stand firm in freedom's
cause. This is our object, and those who seek the
same end can co-operate with us.
"We complain of the South, but have more rea
son to complain of the traitors among us, who be
tray Northern interests. We want such action at
tho North as will enable us to sustain men who are
faithful, and to consign to infamy those who have
been fonnd willing to barter freedom for some
paltry office. The Whigs are ready, we trust, to
take thw ground ; and when they have filled Con
gress with good men and true, they will demand at
their hands the repeal of the Nebraska bill Such
are our objects, and all who seek the same end can
become co-workers together with us, and will find
us intent upon that great nnd good object. "
The. advice of this article is, that, in those north
ern States where the whigs are in the majority, the
freesoilers should unite with them, while in those
States, where the democrats are in the majority
tie whigs should join the freesoilers. It is urged
that the object of the whigs and the abolitionists,
in regard to slavery, is identical; and, being iJenti
cal, the only question is, which party shall give up
its organization for the sake of cousolidating the
anti-slavery elements.
How like Tennessee whigs the arguments of
their northern-tretirei. ?
To ouit AoBicoLTur.AL Friends.--We are anx
ious to obtain, at as early a day as possible, all the
statistical information we can in regard to the pre
sent corn crop. Our well-informed agricultural
friends in each county are, therefore, requested to
make out a statement of the probable yield of the
crop in their county as compared with la3t year
and send it to us by the time of the meeting of
bur Agricultural Fair in October. They will place
us under obligations by complying with this re
quest. Western Democratic Review. The September
. number of the "Western Democratic Review,"
(published at Indianapolis, la., by Geo. P. Buell,.
price $3 00 a year,) lias been received. It con
tains ten excellent articles, and is illustrated with
a very faithful and elegant portrait of Gov. J. A
Alat.eson, of Illinois. The literary character of tho
"Review" is aof very high order, and will, we think,
compare favorably with "Putnam's Magazine,"
and is withal, radically Democratic. Since Mr.
Putnam has seen fit to serve up to his readers poli
tical articles furniihed by a Fourerito and Aboli
tionist, democrats had better subscribe to a period
ical that is les3 given to isms. With the encour
agement of a few thousand subscribers, the "West
cm Democratic Review" would be enabled to fur
nish its readers the very best literary and political
articles in the country.
Is the Whig Party Dead? The Chicago Times,
speaking of a meeting in that city on Friday
night, says:
-Mr. Blackwell addressed the meeting, and
though lie disclaimed all authority to speak for the
Whig party or the district, still, in stating what
course he would recommend them to pursue, he
indiiated clearly to our mind what tho Whig con
vention will j.. This course was to abandon the
naino and organization of the Whig party now
and forever mon, and take up any name which
could unit.- in one party all men who are opposed
to the principle", of the Domoc-ratic party; who
are opposed to popular sovereignty; who are in fa
vor ol the Wilmut pioviso; in tavor of the repeal
of tho fugitive Slav act, who are in iavor of the
Wilton of slavery; in favor of the prohibition of
the uaiulor ot slaves from one slave State to ano
ther, and in tavor of tho exclusion from office and
fromUienghtof suUra-e of all persons n Cn

If State pride, and a sympamy - -
section of the country, arc not strong enough to
prompt th-eSouthern people to patronize their own
Colleges, the attitude of hostility assumed by .tie
prominent Colleges of the Northern States slionld
certainly forbid any.. Southern gentleman from
sending his s6n to beieducated in the midst ofuch
abolition fanaticism. We commend to our readers
the following sensible article frith a late number of
tho Richmond Enquirer, reminding. $em,; that wo
are about to have re-opened in Nashville a Univer
sity which will afford to the young men. of the
State all the advantages to be obtained anywhere
in the country: and which a becoming State pride
and proper sectional feeling may at once placeQj
the list of the most flourishing institutions of the
Union. The Enquirer says:
"It is difficult to understand why Southern gen
tlemen will persist in sending their sons to Yaukee
colleges, since they are in no respect superior to our
mm institutions. There is much vanity, but neither
nronrietv in the custom, Ihe time was.;
when a young gentleman with a diploma from
Cambridge, Yale, or Princeton was regarded with
something of the respect due to an intelligence
from a higher sphere, but this absurd feeling is al
together out of place in the present more enlight
ened day. The colleges of the South are quite as
well supplied with means and appliances of in
struction, and are equally renowned as the more
ancient institutions of the North. The standard of
scholaiship is higher in our schools. Better insti
tutions of learning than the College of South Caro
lima and our own University do not exist in the
country. Yet young gentlemen go from Virginia
and South Carolina to be instructed in the myste
ries of the higher law at Cambridge, and to be edi
fied by the treasonable discourses of tho puritan
divines of New Haven. There is something at
tractive to young and suswptible minds, in the
classic declamation with which the orators of New
England drape their hideous doctrines of African
equality and fraternity. Besides, the theory of gov
ernment and politics taught in the schools of the
North is radically wrong, and essentially antagon
istic 10 Southern institutions. Wha wonder, then,
if a vain flippant boy return from Cambridge with
an unauestioninr reverence of Hildreth and an
intense admiration of Sumner? If Southern gen
tlemen would not be instrumental in the political
prostitution of their sons, thev should not senl
them to Harvard for law nor to Yale for science."
THE KNOW NOTHINGS Fb THE CONSTITUTION
The Constitution of the United States says: "No
religious te3t shall ever be required as a qualification
to any office or public trust under tho United
States."
Again: "Congress shall make no law respecting
an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof."
The Know-nothings are understood f o be oppos
ed to these constitutional provisions. They make
a "religious test." They ostracise from the public
service all who profes3 the Catholic religion.
They are also understand to be in favor of making
a law "respecting an establishment of religion."
The Constitution also provides that any person.
who has attained the age of twenty-five years,
"and been seven years a citizen of the United
States," may be elected a representative in Con
gress. It provides that nine years citizenship shall
render a foreigner eligible to the United States
Senate. Under the constitution a foreigner, who
was a citizen of the United States at the time of
the adoption of the Constitution, may be elected
President The Know-nothings are understood to
be in favor of nullifying all these provisions.
It thus appears that the only two principles pro
fessed by th'13 new organization, are opposed to the
Constitution.
A Wnia Cirr. The Boston Times states that
number of constables who assisted in maintaining
the supremacy of the laws at the time of the ar
rest of Sims, the fugitive slave, in 1852, have just
been turned out of office by the Board of Aldermen
f that city.
Tub Es'GLisn Crops. The London Times, com
menting on the English crops, states that "the dif
ference in the price of wheat, compared with that
of the previous twelve months, will be at least
twenty shillings a quarter in favor of the public,
which, on the whole consumption, will amount lo
a boon of 25,000,000 to the publicon wheat alone,
besides corresponding relief on other grain."
TnE Putnam Pcblisuers. The Putuams are the
large publishers inN. York who were reported in
solvent a few days ago. Their liabilities are stated
to be $80,000. The partisanship, and the meau
partisanship at that of their Magazine, did not
flourish very well, it would seem.
Perpetual Motion. The discovery of a new
perpetual motion is announced at New York. It
is on the plan of arms and balls attached to a cyl
inder, so as to keep the extra weight always on the
descending side. It requires no starting, only
needs letting loose and off it it goes. The difficul
ty is to stop it The Journal of Commerce says :
"After a careful examination we can safely say,
in all seriousness, that the propelling power is self
contained and self-adjusting, and gives a sufficient
ly active force to carry ordinary clock-work, and
all without any winding up or replenishing."
t2f The shipments of copper last year from the
Lake Superior country, according to the Lake, Su
perior Journal, were little short of 3,000 of mineral,
producing 2,000 of refined copper. On this the in
creased value of last year over the prerious one
was not far from $200,000.
From Odessa the letters repeat that the
grain crops throughout southern Russia are very
large and that owing to state of affairs purchases
of wheat may be made at unprecedentedly low
rates. Including warehouse rent for a year, the
cost would not be moro than 14s to losper quarter
free on board.
New York ahd Boston Railroad. It gives u?
pleasure (says tho Middletown Jfews) to learn that
the subscription to the stock of the New York and
Boston railroad ("Air line") is coming in much
faster than could have been expected under the un
favorable state of money affairs.
The Chicago Journal gives an account of
the murder of the oldest policeman in that city,
Casper Lower, who was stabbed to the heart on
Monday by a man named Cunningham, whom
Lower was endeavoring to arrest

kh- Thp Tlnqtnn Courier .learns from a (rentier
man who has iust been throvirji,' .Illinois, and has
letters and advices of latest dates Irom all parts of
Illinois, Missouri, and Wisconsin,Uliat there will be
a lull average in the North, and a little less in the
South; out tun crop3 in an parts where hogs are
grown. The corn on the prairies daks remarkably
wen. The reports mat have oeen m the papers
about half crops of corn in tho States .referred to
originated mostly with those who have -bogs and
corn to sell. He is satisfied that there will bo 25
per cent, more hogs packed in the three. States
above nameu tnau an arorage, ana a large increase
over last year.
On the other hand, the St Louis Democrat says :
Stock of all kinds is coming down in price. In
Illinois, or in portions of it hogs are given away,
and in some places hundreds have been shot to
keep them from starving. The price to be paid by
packers has not been mentioned, but we presume
S3 50 toS4 will be tho openinc rate. Wo aro of
opinion that corn-fatted hog3 will not be plenty
this season. Mast, however, is said to bo abundant
which will in some measure make up for the de
ficiency in corn.
The Springfield (111.) Journal has tho following:
It is an extraordinary fact, that, though the dry
character of the season has cut off the late crops,
there is a most astonishing mast The oak trees
are loaded with acoms, and some of them, we are
told, will yield ten bushels. These acorns, we are
informed by those who oujrht to know, for the pur
pose of fattening hogs, are nearly equal to corn;
particularly is this the case with tho acorns from
the white oak. Where our farmers live in the
neighborhood of forests they will be able to make
nearly their usual quantity of pork, especially if
tney nave suiucieni corn 10 leeu meir nogs a ie
weeks.
Mast fed pork is not. however, in as hich esteem
as that which is corn fed; but a good deal of the
former will be brought to market the coming tall.
Horse Breaking tor Harness. Before the horse
is attached to any vehicle, the harness should be
allowed to remain on him in the stable several hours
during two or three consecutive days; he should be
led out so that he may become thoroughly accus
tomed to the trappings, and a cord six or seven feet
m length should be fastened to each trace. With
this the horse is quietly led about, one man per-
iorming that duty, while another follow?, holding
the aforesaid cords, which, as the animal moves
forward, are to be strained so that he feels a slight
pressure of the collar upon his shoulders. The in
tention of this treatment must be obvious; if the
horse is alarmed by the effect of the collar, the man
holding the cords which are affixed to the traces can
instantly relax them; and agaiD, when he finds Hi
pupil is reconciled, 110 may renew a moderate
strain, and finally as much resistance as he has pow
er to create, xsy this means, the most timid horse
will gain confidence, and by perseverance the most
refractory may be overcome. A horse when first
encumbered with harness, if immediately attached
to a vehicle, is astonished, when required to re
move, at finding a pressure on his shoulder which
he has never before experienced. He discovers
another novel apparatus for confinement; he is, in
fact, trammeled, and endeavors to escape; probably
he plunges, kicks, or rears and becomes dithcult to
manage; but by the simple process just recommend
ed all this is obviated. J Unix on Iraimng.

A dispute arose as to an article which appeared

drew a revolver, and was in the act of raising it,
when one barrel was prematurely discharged. Maj.
AVeightman then drew a bowie-knife, and stabbed
Aubrey in the abdomen, causing his death in 10
minutes. Major W. j'esterday surrendered himself
and was held to bail in j-,000. It 13 said that no
one regrets the event more than Maj. Weightman.
TnE Forrest Divorce Case. In this case, being
an action for divorce, it will be remembered Mrs,
Forrest obtained a verdict in her favor, and an
award, we believe by the jury, of about $3000 per
year, during life for her maintenance.
Mr. Forrest entered an appeal, giving security to
abide the event, Mr. Bryast and another gentle
man being his sureties, and the matter has there
stood, no payments having been made.
In the meantime, Mrs. Forrest, after playing here
and elsewhere, went off to San Francisco, where
it is said, she is making money as the proprietor
and menageress of a theatre. Mr. Forrest, it is
known, ha3 also been playing with much success.
The bill of exceptions on the appeal is to be en

of the court, but will not probably, from what we
can ascertain, be ready for argument, probably, for
some time afterwards. It will make, we aro told.

Population or Memphis. The city Census Taker
ha3 made a report to the Connci', from which we
gather that the total population of the city is 12.

the population last year, lie also estimates the
population in the immediate suburbs of the city
at.uuu. 11 nun 11 13 remeraoereu mai me census
was taken in the middle of the summer, when
the population is thinntr than at any other sea

our increase. Ihe total number of free wh.to
persons is 0,C70, of slaves 2,85S, and of free
o ilored persons 159. The number of white

The total number of masculine slaves is 1,279; fem-

as follows, viz: First Ward, 2,410; Second, 1.CS0;
Third, 1J09; Fouith; 4,522; Fifth, 2,094, Sixth,

At the same ratio of increase as has taken place
during the last year, in five years Memphis will

the Cholera in this City, commenced its ravages
wtst of Gay street, and'all the cases of mortality
in the City, have been among persons who either
resided or labored west of Gay street, covering
about half the territory in the city. Those who
j have escaped the ravages of this frightful disease
nere, mostly use the water of what is known as
"Havely's Spring," evidently the best water in tho
city, and said to be a mixture of free and lime
stone. On the other hand, those who have suffer
ed most from the ravages of the disease, have used
the water of the Springs near the fork of Main and
Cumberland streets, at the foot of College Hill
springs which were filled with a red anU singular
