It ia expected that the delegates from several southern States wilt desire to pass through Nash villo on their waj to the National Convention at tCincinBati. At the suggestion of several Tennea 'see delegates, we have therefore made au arrange ment by which an elegant light-draught passenger steamboat will leave Nashville on Tuesday, the 27th, May, for Cincinnati; arriving there on Satur--s day morning, Slay 31; remaining there during the jwssion of the convention; and leaving on her re turn to Nashville immediately on the adjournment i The petmgo each way will be ten dollars. The en tire arrangements will he superintended by Capt H. H. Harrison, steamboat agent at this place, to whom all applications for passage must be made. In tha event of Uw river being too low for cer- tain navigation, Messrs. Cartes & Thomas's lines of Btages to Louisville will put passengers through - to that city in thirty-five hours, over the best roads .and through the most charming scenery in the ..-country. Tha resources of Carter & Thomas for the conveyance of passengers are almost unlimit ?. edi.'&nd they will be prepared for any number. The route through Bowling Green passes by tha Mammoth Cave, and with one day to spare' our southern friends can stop over and. visit this great natural curiosity. . , .

(fifty thousand dollars,) for printing a communica tion from Smith county, the Knoxville Register - rsaya it has "no idea that the whole of the amount claimed will bo obtained, precisely." That's a reasonable conclusion ! We printed a paper in u-KnoxvUle six years! Ifthe editor don't now know all that this statement involves, he'll find out by ' ' the time he has been six years at the trade. Even v a tenth partof the sum will look to him like those incredible amounts talked of in connexion with the - British National debt. ' The Louisville Democrat says: . Ohly a TRiFLEjpodest fellow, by tne name of Williams, whojflMgsto the Hindoo tribe and Jives down lrFTsliiith county, iennessee, nan - brought a libel suit against the editor of the Nash ville Uhioij akb American, claiming damages amounting to the triflmc sum oi fifty thousand dol lars. The editor not having "the change past him" when the writ was served, told the Sheriff he would"come to court." The libel consists in a castigction which a correspondent of the Uhioh asd American had administered to the aforesaid Williams, for indecent publications concerning tbe officers of a democratic meeting held in Smith county some months ago. The castigation was administered to an anon ymous writer, signing himself "Agiicola," The name of Williams was nofmentioned in it, and it was some days after its publication before we knew that Williams waB the writer referred to in it by the name of Agrkola. Indeed, as wc have belora said, we gave out the article supposing it to be proceedings of a public meeting, and read it for the first lime after it vs in print. THE GAZETTE. The Gazette rejoices that we do not deny sun dry of its charges against the "anti-American par ty." Why what does that paper suppose we care about its charges against that party 1 We belong to the democratic parly. When that party is as sailed, we feel called upon to defend it, unless the charges arc so gross and absurd as to carry their own refutation on their face. And that is the ch&ractcr of nrettv nearly all the Qautlc's charges " If that paper isn't as crazy as a bed bug with spirits of turpentine in its eyes, then we ore no judges of insanity. MORE INFLUENTIAL "OLD LINE WHIGS" COM 1NG TO THE RESCUE. B. A. UnoN, Esq., not long since the Whig standard-bearer in the 3rd Congressional District ofLouisiana, and Roukkt Woldbidot, Esq., the Secretary of the last Whig National Convention of the United States, have' come out publicly In sup port of the great National Democratic party of the Union, for the following patriotic reasons, clearly and powerfully set forth, in a letter of Mr. Upton, addressed to Sir. Wooldbidqe: " The results f the recent elections throughout the country, particularly in the South, the present organization of the National House of Representa tives, tbe entire absence ot any feature of nation ality fn the American party, its coalition wfthBlack Repubiicaoiam in the North and West, its want of unity in its onn National Council, its want of per manency in its promulgated platforms, but above all, its coalition with Abolitionism in the non Elaveholding States, all combine to lead ue to the belief that tbe South can place no reliance upon this party in the hour of danger. You eay truly, that tbe ifsus presented to the American people at the next Presidential election, is no less a one ''than the preservation and perpetuatiou of the American Union;" and upon this issue, it seems to me, every true friend of the South and the Union, will be lound in the ranks, and advocating the "principles of that party, that possesses a nationality large enough to defend the great principles of tho Amer ican Constitution, and to peipecuate the existence of tho American Union that will concede to every portion of the country, the guarantied rights of all, without diminution. Entertaining these views, and with all old issues either settled or forgotten, believing by such a course the interests and rights of the South, and the whole country, will be best conserved, I shall be found heartily co-operating with the Democratic purty in the election of any national candidate whom they may present to the American people for the Presidency at the approaching Cincinnati Convention. Confined by no narrow views, but looking be yond our own State, and beyond the South, to the whole Union, I think the interests of the country will be best protected, and the Union more surely preserved, by the elevation to the Presidency of a sound, conservative national Democrat; and so be lieving, x snail ao whatever 1 may to attain this end. Nominees of the Florida Dimocbatic Con vintiox. From the Tallahassee Floridian we learn that the Democratic Convention which as sembled at Madison, in that State, on Wednesday last, nominated the Hon. M. S.Perry, of Alachua, (ot Governor, the Hon. Geo. S. Hawkins, of Jack son, for Congress, the Hon. M. A. Long, the Hon Phillip Dell and It. L. Campbell, for Presidential Electors. Political Papers in Kentucky. The change ot jpublic sentiment in Kentucky towards the dange rous doctrines of Know Nothingism is aptly illus trated by the relative strength ot the party presses. Just prior to the Gubernatorial election last Au gust, the Know Nothing papers outnumbered the Democratic and Anti-K. if. by a majority of eleven. 2fow the list stands Democratic 19, Know Noth ing 19, and independent, or Whig, 3. Within the fast twelve months a number ot &now Nothing papers have died for the want of support, and sev eral Democratic presses have been established.

" thus reviews the bombas tic elairstof inteBSeacd excTosiyaAmericaaferxuset up for the know-nothing party by one of its.orguns, the afhand'J,nqUHr: : , - Partwan Folly. Wo have rarely read any thing more intensely uttra, than an article in yes terday's Eagle, heaJed "The American Party." It U evidently designed to whip in tbe wavering and irresolute, sad to deter them from bolting lion the "American" party. The writer of the article in question says that this organization of which that journal is a .recognised organ, 'wi.l, in the end. nunioer in iia ranics au uiito are unpurchaseable, or untainted with Jiomanism" The article further loose who have abandoned the American or know- nothing organization, "are: willful traitors to rturt principles, either frinn interested motives of moral cewaraice. Now, the editor of the Hialem&v be rill v enough to lelieve all this; but thinking and reflecting men will be apt to regard it a3 partisan folly. Such coarse and sweeping denunciation never did any good to any cause. Men capable of comprehend ing and appreciating principles, are not apt to in dulge in it; tor all such know, very well, that men may and do honestly differ in opinion, and that diflerence of opinion, merely, tarnishes no just ground for impeachment of motives Whenever it is indulged in, it is evidence either of the weakness of the cause it is intended to serve, or of the foolish luuiscreuon oi its advocates; ana our contemporary does both himself and his party, or "order," as the case may De, an injustice, when he seek by such means to influence or control the popular judg menu That party has set itself up as the champion, par excellence, of the right of individual judgment, ana as the peculiar loe of "popery. Ana yer, the article in question, denies to every one whose judg ment may disapprove of the means employed by it of conserving true "Americanism," any integri ty of motive in that disapproval; whilo its author virtually assumes the papal prerogative of anathe matizing all who will not obey his behests. That the .Eiik may not tnfeneZ'any such ridiculous pre sumption, is possible, for it has often a way of soaring up into saying what it does not precisely mean to say; bnt that such is the import of this article is indubitable by any one who will read it. Pur ."American" friends are beginning to see some of tbe evil effects of their abandonment of the good old Whig party for an organization which bears such fruit as this tho ravings of a monoma nia for one single Idea. Under the old Whig rule, intelligence, and the philosophy of politics in oth er words, Statesmanship bore sway. Argument, reason, appeals to the judgment in regard to oppo sing systems of administering the Government, were the weapons of political warfare. Now, it is prejudice, coarse and bitter denunciation. To have "seen Sam,'' to revile "Romanism," and to denounce a'l who are impudently assumed to be anfi-Americans because they have not "seen Sam' takes the place of argument, reason, and sober judgment. Fifth and tenth-rate men, who once reverently followed, are now leadere forsooth I and deal as glibly with the political destinies of aspi rants to public honors, as if invested with the "keys" of admittance into public trust. Theyh&ve "seen Sam," and are his high priests. Our "American' friends may rely upon it, there is a recuperation in the popular intelligence and the popular patriotism, which will scatter all such denunciatory stuff, like chaff before the wind which will contemn, despise and defy it. The real American people are not to be long humbugged, dictated to, nor led by the nose, by demagogues. You may reason with them, and by convincing, persuade them; but they cannot.be driven by de nunciation, nor intimidated in their opinions by the bluster of partisan bigotry. PRESIDENT PIERCE. We copy the following article from an ultra Southern Rights journal in Alabama, with no ob ject of influencing, by its publication, the vote of a single delegate to the National Convention. But we believe that it does Gen. Pierce no more than simple justice in its statements of facts; and it is inexpedient, as well a3 urju3t, for the South to.re fuse a grateful recognition of the firmne3 with which he has upheld her constitutional rights: The Next Presidential Election. The time approaches when the whole country will be con vulsed bv politcal excitement. The contest for the honors and spoils pf office will soon begin to wcx warm, and the brain and muscle of all classes be called into powerful exercise. The most active afrentBin this business will be the politicians the place hunters.. Their vigilance and ability secure to tbem the controlling power in candidate making, and, unfortunatly for the country, the paramount consideration with them, is availability. Party success is the beginning and end of all their labors. Hence the danger of the convention. It had its origin with this class to answer this purpose. It is particularly hazardous at this time, when, upon all the issues affecting the vital interests of the South, there is awell ascertained hostile majority sentiment at the North. This sentiment must be conciliated it has too much power to ruje or ruin that man who has defied it and incurred its displeature can never secure its support, and his nomination amounts to defeat. Give us a candid ate who has made tracks on both sides of Mason and Dixon's line, and who cannot be traced to any jesting place on cither side of this line who, Janus-like, has a face for both sections whose political record when arranged for tbe canvas will satisfy all sections and classes that he is the friend of each to the exclusion of all others a shifty nolitician. who has always managed to keep his place, aud was never syspActcd of the folly of pursuing principle neyonu ujereacnoi me largest crowd. Such a man is usually the fay.orjte of conventions. Under these circumstances, what are General Pierce's chances in the Ciqcinnati Convention? His administration meets with almost universal endorsemnet at the South, and no Chief Magistrate has ever established higher claims to the confi dence and approbation of the whole country. During his term of office no section has been de prived by legislation of a single right to which it was entitled under the contitution. No set of his administration works ic justice to spy section under the forms cf tbe constitution, and no act of (Jon cresj has become a law, by bis sanction, that is not in perfect harmony with the purest doctrines of Istates lights. Liise a true man, ne nas aiscnargea his duty faithfully, and left the results to God and his country, Tbe South may remain in this confederacy this union of States must stand (if it stand at all) upon the principles recognized and enforced in the mes sages of President Pierce. We repeat that no chief magistrate has ever given to tnese great principles such prominence, such popularity such clearness and power and the true theory of our Govern ment, tho permanence of sound principles, and the safety of the South and the Union, have never re ceived a more dangerous blow than would be given by tho overthrow of Gen. Pierce by the Cincinnati Convention. Ths moral effect of turning aside a well tried public servant because he had mode his availability questionable by bis fidelity to um con stitution, would be truly disastrous and Buch an act of treachery, by the South, when ha had peril led all his hopes ot re-election for her protection, would be loathed and depised by every right-minded man. General Pierce has re-established and re-organised the great principles of free government as ex pounded and sanctioned by Jefferson and Calhoun; he has indoctrinated the great mass of the nation al Democratic party with these principles has gi ven that party a character for soundness which it never had belore, and nothing is wanting to entitle it to the confidence and support of every true man but the re-nomination of General Pierce, and a firm adhesion to the principles of bis messages. While ajrepudiation of him will bring Conventions into utter disrepute, and the Democratic party to the position of an organization that can be held together only by the cohesive power ol public plun dv Spirit af the South. The War. The Richmond Enquirer thu3 sums up the results of the European war: To sum up results: Sardinia, after exhausting its credit, is dismissed with a reprimand for its' imper tinent interference; the Ottoman Empire in Eu rope is overthrown, and Tuikey has' become the prey of its protectors ; Great Britain has been out witted in the cabinet, dishonored in tho field, and degraded from its proud position among the na tions of Europe ; Franco has monopolized all the material advantages and military glory of the war, and is now indisputably the foremost power of the earth; Russia is just what it was before, not di minished in its resources, nor disparaged in the character, nor curbed in its ambition, but full of young Ijfe, irrepressible energy, and confidence in its own great aeatiny.

" 1 This is a subject df much interest to our citizens, and the expression- cf opinion, by pne indiviiual, may be rrcaived by the aforesaid 'Commissioners favorably; capable as 'they are to ioves'tigatelL'e' requirements of tbo community. . As I have been informed,' lands are offered by Hardin P. Bostick, and also by G, CvToebctt. j Both tracts are well situated convenient to the city, and on the line of the Nashville and North Western Railroad, which has its terminus at a point near the court house, and from wbtn:e cars could run every ten minutes, carrying all who might de sire to be present at the exhibition, and a'so afford ing an easy and safe transit for til the articles of manufacture, agriculture, etc. etc, which would compete for the prizes Both aro, easily accessible by turnpike roads for those coming from th?i"Hja cent country; and for the citizens, at a pleasaa iis tance from the buiiaeas localities, facility affoided by the Railroad for all, no matter how arduous their engagements, to enjoy the profitable recreation, and having in this respect a great advantage over other lands located three or four miles from the city; for the more you increase the distance to be travelled, the greater becomes the length of time required to arrive at the tcene of enjoyment. However, my ownsentiments aro in favor of the grounds of Hardin P. Bostick, and I am supported by a large number of citizens in this opinion. The only objection to this locality which can be offered is slight inconvenience in obtaining a full supply of water for the stock, but this may easily be remedied kby the establishment of cisterns, which, on the failure cf other resources can be. filled from the tanks of tbe Railroad locomotives; for tbe railroad forms the south loandary of tho groundsi leaving them in one solid body.' These grounds are well embellished by fine forest trees, affording a shade which could not be obtain ed for many years with trees yet to be set out, also located adjacent to tbe grounds offered by Samuel Watkins for a public park, where those oppressed with the bustle and confusion of the busy scene of State progress, would find a pleasant re treat. A view of tbe improvements erected on the Fair ground;, in the public pirk, and along the line of railroad, combined with a splendid prospect of the city, crowned by tho majestio.capitol, would of themselves be welt worthy a -lay spent in their contemplation. Bono Publico. A Tribute to tbe Pdbiit and Nationality of thb Democratio Party. We copy from the Pcnn sylvvaian a letter from William Sergeant, Esq. Mr. Sergeant is a sob of the late Hon. JonN Ser geant, of Philadelphia, and has always been an ardent and efficient supporter of the Constitution. PniLADKLPniA, April 9, 185C. Dear Sir: I wish to present, through you, my resignation as a "member of the Committee of Su perintendence, to which position you were pleased to appoint me at the last meeting of the Whig City Convention. To prevent misunderstanding, I will, in as few words as possible, state the cause which impels me to this course. At the first meeting of tho Con vention, throughout its deliberation, to the best of my leemepower, i opposed the nomination of a separate Whig ticket, thinking, that unless a fusion were enected with the democrats, it would only be playing into the hands of the know-nothings, and so contribute to tbe continuance of the misrule which now disgraces this city. When the Con ventisn, however, by a large majority insisted upon the lormation of a ticket, 1 remained in it, and cast my vote for different persons, in the hope that a portion of those nominated might be incorporated with the Democratic ticket. Desirable as such a fusion was, it bos not been effected. The contest now is essentially between the Democratic and know-nothing parties. The former, whatever may be its faults, 13 an open "ponptitutional party tho tatter wna its grips ami pass wora3 its oaths ana secret meetings, opposed to the constitution, and the whole spirit of our institutions. This be'iDg the issue, ifhas not cost me a moment's reflection which side to espouse I intend to devote myself as energetically as possioie to tho euccess of the Democracy at the approaching Municipal election and lest my position upon the Committee of Sni perintendsnce might appear inconsistent with such a course, 1 respectiully resign it. Very truly, yours, Wm. Sergeant. Abraham W. Juvenal, Esq. PUBLIC MEETING.

At the election yesterday for county and town officers the whole democratic ticket was elected by over three hundred majority.'' The American Question. What hidden motive is producing the exasperating and uncalled-for ar tides upon American affairs in the Times? It can not be the profits of the journalist that impels these insulting and mischievous diatribes, lor everybody is indignant at the recklessness of tbo writer. Just at tbe time when every statesman is disposed to show the greatest reserve and forbearance in alluding tc OurUiU4;iJlllca Willi ujo uuucu oiawja, tuc is hurling insults across the Atlantic with as little ,:m w: m:u TT-:.l ct.M 1. - rr: . : . thought as a scnooi-ooy bestows on his squib3 and cracKers. 1 esteraay, in an article upon the cj J3e of the Russian war, we are told that having dispo sed of one pretender to universal dominion in the East, we must uow prepare to meet another in the West. America, we are gravely told, is aiming at tho dictatorship of tho world. If so, she ia aiming at it through some means totally different from those of the great military powers of Europe. America, with an army of twelve thousand pjen, with a navy numbering but one lino of battle-ship, unci with her whole coait entirely without defences. seeking to place herself "above all the world," is a supposition so monstrous that it will be viewed in America as a mere pretence for covering designs cn the part of Europo against America.

Delta of April 1 5.J The Raoei Union Course. Great Three mite RaceLccomple again deeated.-iThe three-mile race' which wa3 announced to come eff yesterday batween the celebrated nags, Lecompte, Pryorand Minnow, attracted an immense crowd of gentlemen and ladies to the Union Course. We have seldom seen mere curiosity and interest manifested on a raca-track. For a long time before the hour an nounced for the race, carriages, omnibusses and ve hicles of every description were to be seen wending their way with all available speed to the trial ground of strength. The track, we wore sorry to see, was not at all in good condition; being very heavy. Betting was pretty high before the start among tho respective backers of Lecompte and Pryor, white not a few seemed disposed to risk their fortunes on Minnow. When the signal to Btart was given, all three went off in pretty good order, Lecompte taking the in side track and Pryor having the lead. On enter ing the second mile Lecompto showed in front, but only by a short distance, and maintained his posi tion until the end of the third mile, making the heat easily in 5 minute3 and 58 J seconds, followed by Prycr, who ran a good second, and Minnow, who seemed determined tm keeping company with them. This gave additional encouragement to the friends of Lecompte to back up their favorite horse. Ac cordingly bets of fifty ti twenty were freely offer ed, and we did not obaervo any eagerness, even among the knowing one?, to take them up. The friend3'of Pryorand Minnow, however did not lose all confidence." They were anxious to see the re sult of the Second Heat Pryor took the lead at the start closely followed by Lecompte, Minnow occupying her old position as third. At the first quarter Le compte, not liking his position, brushed up to his adversary and passed him, Minnow still remaining close at their heels. At the homo stretch of the second mile'Lecompte was still ahead, but at the half mile post of tbe third mile, Pryor locked with himt and they remained together for a time. Turn ing into the home stretch, however, Pryor seemed determined on shaking ctl his stubborn adversary, and came in winning tbe heat by about a length in five minutes and 59 seconds, Lecompte running a good second and Minnow still third. 80 ended tbe third heat. But we now have to do with tbe betting men. Pryor who was the favorite origi nally, now became so par excellence. His friends offered to back him up at almost incredible odds. Hopes were still entertained by tbe admirers of Minnow that thero were still some chances in her ikvor, and it must bo confessed that their hopes were not altogether without foundation, as she ac quitted herself right well during the two previous heats and did not seem at all fatigued by the exer tions she had made. The expectancy of tha crowd had now crown into quite an excitement, and every person on the track awaited eagerly tbe tapping 01 the drum. At tho appointed time tbe three horse3 were again brought to the Hue, and looked in remarkable good condition. The filiy sesmed, however, to have suffered least from the fatigue ofthe two heats she had run. She took the lead at tho start, and kept it at a dashing pace for the two first miles, Prvor occupying the Becond place, with Lecompte not very far behind. As they entered on the thiid mile Pryor's rider thought it about timo to make him exert .himself, and urged him to bnuh up little. He was not unsuccessful. As they closed the hrst quarter-stretch he came up to the hlly, shot ahead, and nuintameu his place until he pa& ed the staud, winning the race and neat by abou! a half a length in C 12. The struggle between him and the filly along the home stretch of tho last mile was one of tbe most exciting wo ever witnessed. The whip was used freely on the mare, but to no purpose. Pryor had too much metal for her. It was generally be lieved by parties who are posted up in these mat ters that, bad the track been somewhat lighter, sLe would have won the heat, and perhaps tbe race. Tho race was, on tho whole, one of the most in teresting we have ever seen, and although the time wa3 not the fastest on record, it was. we think, very good, considering the heovy state of the track Gen.
