"Whereas the action ot the Grand Council of the
State of New York at their late sessiou in October

HOS.ASDBEW JOHNSON AND THE OUBEBNATO-
Most of the Djmo.-rati.- pap?rs in the State have
unhesitating!? epieed a ile-iro that Gov. John
son, the present incumbent, shall airain be the dem
ocratic candidate for Governor. We are pleased
loseesuch-unanimitv and lisimony in our party
ranks in regard to Iiis candidacy, as we know of
no oilier man in our party we would prefer as our
standard bearer in the comiug contest. We there
lore tak t!;i occasion to expie?s our unqualified
approbation of the movement. We are proud to
ay that Gov. Jonssos df ejrvrs, aud has the con
fidence ofliis party. He is one of those politicians
that we see only now and then, untarnished by
vice and unswayed by personal prejudice: his
whole political life has been dt-voted to the inter
est of those whom he had the honor to represent,
and the whole object of his untiring industry and
exertions seems to be for the accomplishment of
the great democratic maxim, the greatest good of
the greatest number. His life fron his early
manhoott to the present time, has been one of un
ommon toil lnrdsLipaiiil usefulness. Those who
have been cast upon the world in their youth, like
many of ua, to shape their future fortunes for them
selves by their own unaided industry, feel a thrill
of shnpathy as they contemplate the history of As
iip.eiv Jons-sox. 1'Voiu the poor apprentice boy he
has gradually risen step by "tep to the pioud emi-
nencs he now occupies, not vuiy m joaiuuu ui

It is tni" the enemies of Governor Johnson have
charged htm with being a demagogue, of pandering
to tho popular prejudice of the diy, of chicanery

ible charges have fallen harmless at his feet But
what matter is it to us what the imputed private
intentions, motive?, wis'ies or desires of men may
be. if the words tliev utter and actions they per
form, aro valu-ible to the country and advance the
interests, prosperity and happiness of the people.
Iftherecan bo any be ter method of measuring the
intentions of a man t!ian by the practical and val
uable services which he has performed for the
State, the wisdom t man has thus far fmled to
Iiseem it Such is the hi'tory of Gov. Johnson,
his merits stand o it in bold relief as a diead con
demnation to all the charges ot'demsgoguery which
may be brought ajraio-'t Jiirn from now till dooms

THE NEW ALLIANCE.
The aecesfkm of Au-tr'u to the AngUi French
alliance in favor of Turkey and against Itmsia has
rendered jvill moro derided thf feeling of the peo
ple of tuo United States in favor of the latter power.
The despotism of Austria is far more intolerable
tin that of IltlSfh. The firnier"power keeps up
an immense army to crush the Republican spirit
ila latter to iirotert iK van frontiers from invasion
or subjugate tho wilJ tribes of Asia. For our own
part, we would rather pee tho House of Romanoff
reigning in Vienna than ihe House of Hapsburg
For, wc Itelievp humanity would be the gainer by
the change. Aud so in Tuikey the energy and
enterprise of a christian Emperor's rule would re
dound far inorc to lit ; benefitof mankind and the
promotion of rivilization, thau the lukewarm, ?en
suaL insipid sway of a Alihommcdan Sultan.
Tho gi3t barrier between the colossal power of
the Czar, (supiwsing Turkey a part of his domin
ions,) and tl.e west of Jj'iiope, would, or shoull,

and Central (Jermany. 1 hese Republics conld check

Tho power of then whole people would beaioused
in case of danger, and the sympathies of the hu
man race be on tlieir side. Occupying the interior
and central line of Kmope, they could prevent tbe
spread ofal-s-Jnti'in and, by exhibiting to the peo-
'flfa 'of despotic government the blessings of lib
erty, would gradually prepare them to obtain their
own natural ''inalienable rights."
The true position of the the United States Gov
ernment, in the preent European struggle, is no
donbt, one of neutrality.
Isitrot currently rumored and belived that
France and England have some matter to settle
vith us, when they shall be at leisure to do so?
Cuba, Nicaragua, theSnndwich Islands are subject i
of suflicicnt importance to attract their tttontion.
Not content with dictatorial power in the Old
World, they aspire to be the arbiters of- the new.
As to this Weatern hemisphere, or rather its North

Distressing Affair. One of the moit painful
and distressing incidents that we have ever been
called on to record, occurred near this city about
hair mile west of the llaleioh road and I miles
from 0wn. on Tuesday afternoon tho 9thinst. Mr.
David V. Crockett, a young man of high respecta
bility and of worthy family, wandered out to a for
est a few hundred yards from tlih residence of
E-quiie Chace, and deliberately put an end to his
existence by lianiring Inmseil with Ins tiiac-K snu
cravat and silk handkerchief, to the limb of a sap-
hnir. When accidental'y fojnd on the succeeding
evejing (Wednesday) by a boy who went out to
chop wood in the forest, he was slill hanging on
the limb, his clothes saturated with water from the
rains of the night previous, and all the evidences
about him of a deliberate design to terminate Itis
existence. Mr. C. had been confined to his room
for several days by a violent attack ofsickness, and
appeared to be convalescing. He had determined
to leave on the cars the next morning for his homo
at Aliddieburg, Hardeman county, and left his room
auotit 4 o cioi-ic on l ueauay evening, announcing
Uiat lie had iuioitant business in uvvu leqmrini

seen after this uutil found on Wednesday evening
as before staled There is no doubt but he was
laboring under aberration of intellect at the time
he committed the suicidal act.

hearted, impulsive honoiablo aud generous to a
fault. He had been engaged in the mercantile
business for several years at Middlebun'. and had
won a large circle of attached friends during his
res'dence in that part of the country. Many a tear
wt'I flow unbidden at the recital of his melancholy
end. His funeral took place yesterday morning ut
Morris Cemetery, to which his remains were at

A Temperance Storv. One evening last week
we took our place at the supper tible of a Cincin
nati and Lomsvile packet, bupper and conversa
tion had progressed some before we were seated
An animated discourse was going on 'twixt an old
gentleman and au exceedingly sober faced lady, no
less than 50 years old, on the sill ject of temper
''Oh!" exclaimed she, with horror depicted on
her thin hps, ''1 do despise the whisky drinker.
The gentleman dropped his knife and foik, seized
her hand, nnd giving it a hearty shake, we thought
tears were going to drop from his twinkling eye-
"Madam," said he, ' I respect your seutimen-s
and the heart that dictated them. I permit no
person to go leond me in despising the whisky
drinker. 1 have been disgusted ou tin- iery boat,

their youth was illuminated, may bring forth pre

tjntT.'e"4ih oY'sKrcii, lS'Jl, Gre.n uuiried his
wife in Mon'rea'. Cuiada. The mairiape was an '
U ifortnnatecnt lor Mrs. G. From the time of his j
merr'u ge the cruelty of Green to his wi'e was man- i
ifested From her marriage to her death she was
more orles3 icalirrated by him. He hid from t"m ;
to ti.neexpreed lumsell most cruelly towaids her;
that she was the wroug person for him; that Le
should bare maniedherslster. In the bun Cs of the-
defendant she wis'ih' absolute poverty, loosing
end toiling as a slave.
0.i the d.iy before her death she was engaged in
scrubbing the floor, uo servant to help her. Alter
showing his conduct to his wife from her marriage
to her death, wo will snow you now ua suioi iu
her sister t at he wsihed she was dead; that at the
table his wife charged him with attempting to Hi II
her. We will also show that on the morning oi
tl.e 10th of September last she was in gool health;
that there was no one in the house with her. The
next morning he (Green) sent for a laboring mail
and a woman.
When they came she was dead. Ureen was asK-
ed what she died of. He answered Ciiolera. He
was asked if she had a physician. He answered
yes, Dr. Spanglerand a Mrs.-Hal'. Now wo will
prove that neither ot mose persons were mum.
The prisoner said he could not send any person for
help, although he had a boy, his son, in the houre
lie was asKeU U stio uau got any iiieuieiue. up
answered no. While at the same time uo s'gns cf
cholera were round the room.
If the man had eveu been a good husband, thrse
circumstances tell powerfully against him. Grem
commenced dig ing a grave in tho garuen. tie re
fused to have any ceremonies over his wife's body;
said they would do after as well a3 befoic burial.
The coroner's inquest is held. Tin prisoner is ad-
milted to bail. Another examination is nau at uie
request of the woman's friends; the physicians ex
amit ed the body; find no evidence of cholera upon
the body, cither trom exterior or interior examina
tions, but come to the conclusion the person died of
poison or somo other violent means.
Tho StOinacn IS exaiuiueu uy ci'ciicu.tu jp-.i-
?nn. anu it is iouuu mat u uuuuiiua uuc vi mo
most deadly poisons. After this the drawers ot
Hi house were examined, in a Bureau urawer
which was locked, and the key in Green's pocket,
and another in a lower drawer, in this drawer a
paper of strychnine was found, such strychnine as
was found m the siomacn oi uie ueceasuu.
Theu we will show you that contradictory state
tnents were made by the prisoner, nc feeling no
nlrm that he would be suspected. We will show
yon that for years and years he bad been studying
the drcadlul crime that ne nau oeeu irymg m un
cover for some time the most deadly poison. We
will exhibit a case, gentlemen, which has not had
its parallel in the history of circumstantial evidence.
All these facts were substantiated to the satislac-
toa of Uie jury in a trial which, after two week's
duration, tenninated last Saturday night in a verdict
of guilty. The Chicago Democrat of Monday says :
Whatever may have been the opinion ot the puD
lic in regard to his position and the influence of his
wealth, uo one with whom we have conversed, or
who can have read our extended and accurate re
port, can have failed to have made up their minds
as to the guilt of the prisoner. The verdict, so far
as we have been able to learn, is regarded by all
classes as a proper one, and as a necessary vindica
tion of public justice. ...
During the trial, the toiiowing inciuen-. otcui icu.
Green's son, a little boy aged six years, sat upon
his father's knee." At some allusion of the prose
cntin" counsel to the dismemberment of his family,
that stern old man pressed his little boy tohi3 heart,
and bowing his head over him, wept in bitter ago
ny. The lad, unable to realize tne position oi ma
parent, yet with the sympathy which distinguishes
childhood, burst into tears, and with infantile won
der, looked from hi3 father to the multitude and the
sneaker. It was a sad and touching sight.

As we anticipated, we had a tip-toe race yester
day. There were three entries, all good and true
