The inventor of gaslights was a Frenchman, Philippe Le Bon, an egineer of roads and bridges who in 1785 adopted the idea of using, for the purpose of illumination, the gases dis . tilled daring the combustion of wood. lie .labored for a Ion time in the attempt to per ' feet his crude invention, and it was not until 1799 that be confided his discovery to the Institute. In September, 1800, be took out a patent, and in 1801 be published a ruemior containing the result of bis researches. Le 'Bon commenced by distilling wood, in order to obtain from it gas, oil, pitch, and pyroligne oub acid, bnt bis work indica ed the possibility of obtaining gas by distillation from fatty or oily ubstauces. From 1799 to 1803, Le Bon made numerous experiments. lie established at Havre his first thermo-lamps, but the ga which he obtained being a mixture of carba retted hydrogen and -oxide of carbon, and but Imperfectly freed from its iuipuritien, gaveonlj a feeble light and evolved an insopportabh odor, and the result was that but little favor was shown to the new discovery; the inventor eventually died, ruined by bis experiments. The Eoglish soon put in practice the crudt ideas of Le Bn. In 1801 Windsor patented and claimed the credit of inventing the pro cess of lighting by gas; in 1805 several shops in Birmingham weie illuminated by gas manu factured by the process of Windsor and Mur- ' dock; among those who used this new light, : was. Watt, the inventor of the steam engine. In 1816 the first use of gas was mudeiu Lon don, and it was not nntil 1818 that this inven-' tion really of French origin, was applied in France. The following carious titles of works is ta ken from "Kotes and Queries."" In 1688, a pamphlet was pbblished in Lon don, entitled "A most Delectable Sweet Per fumed Nosegay for God's Saints to p-mell at." About the year 1 049, there was published a work entitled A Pair of Bellows to blow off the Dust cast npon John Fry," nnd another called "The Snuffers of Divine Love." Crom well's time was particularly famous for title pages. The author of a work on charity en titled his book "Hooks and Eyes for Believers1 Breeches." Another, who profesed a wish to exalt human nature, calls his labor "High heeled Shoes for Dwarfs in Holiness." And another "Crumbs of Comfort for the Chick- ns of the Covenant." A Quaker whose outward man the power that were thought proper to imprison, published "A Sigh of Sorrow for the Sinners of Zion, breathed out of Bole in the Wall of an earthly Vessel, known among Men by the name of Samuel FUh." About the ame time there was also published 'The Spiritual Mmtard-pot, to make the Soul enoeze with Devotion; Salvation's Vantage Ground, or a Looping Sand for Heavy Be lievers." Another. "A Shot aimed at the Devil's Head-quarters through the Tube of the Cannon of the Covenant."

The Frenoh newspapers publish a compari son between the principal results of the Lon don Exhibition of 1851, and that of Paris of tbe present year, which is not without inter est. The principal feature in it is, that whilst the former was open only 165 days, and the latur 198, the number of visitors to the for- taer was 6,039,195, and to the latter only 4,533,401; and that the receipts at London were 12,625,509 and at Paris only 2.9J I, CC8.

The Importance of Harmoay The American party has taken stromr hold npon the confidence and affection of the people of Tennessee. No where in the State has it been more successful than in Davidson county. This may truly be call ed the banner county. Our majority of fif teen hundred places ns proudly in the van of the new party. This unexampled tri umph over our opponents can be prolonged and preserved only by harmony in our own ranks. Our phalanx can be assailed with no hope of success by any opposition from without. But its integrity may be greatly endangered by internal dissensions. The American party was formed out of both the old parties for the preservation of the country, and should not now allow itself to be seduced from this high purpose, for the sake of advancing the hopes and interests of individuals. It belongs to the country, and should forever preserve its high nation al aim. We mistake its origin and dispo sition if it will now suffer itself to be swerv ed from this lofty pathway, to become the instrument of personal ambition or aggran dizement. Selfish assaults have been and may continue to be made npon its integrity in various portions of the State, but it will best maintain its purity by keeping steadi ly in view the service it has to perforin for the entire country, and by remembering that the advancement of private interests, however stoutly they may be pressed upon its attention, is infinitely below its true ob ject and destiny. We regret to record that it is not utterly free from the corrupt ing and disorganizing importunities of per sonal ambition, and that its members arc not universally more regardful of the public welfare than of private interest. But in this respect, it has but fallen into the occa sional commission of a fault inseparable from all political parties. If it has some times felt the force of family jars, rivalries and contentions, the regret is rather deep ened by their rare occurrence, and because they are so totally at variance with the true 6pirit and unselfish purpose of the party. When the discontents, to which we al lude, have occurred, they have generally sprung out of an undue rivalry for office. The party has committed an error, which we have opposed from the beginning, when ever it has undertaken to make nominations for such county offices, as cannot properly be called political. This is a fault of tac tics, and not of principle. We have uni formly opposed in scutiaient such nomina tions. We have felt their disorganizing tendency in Davidson county. Whenever such nominations have been fairly and hon estly made, however, it becomes the duty of every true American to submit to the action and to support the nominee. We say it is at once the duty and the only safe policy of the party to sustain its own ac tion. As already remarked, we are a new party, and our strength is to be preserved only by acting with unity and concert. Every dissension but exposes our wcukness. The common enemy will foment and rejoice at every exhibition of discontent. There fore, every true American will regard the interests of his party and of his country as infinitely superior to his own. The Ameri can party mast " take n step backward." Its course lies straight forward, ami private ambition must not be allowed to 6tand in the way of its progress. We have uttered these sentiments in the spirit of conciliation, and to throw oil on the waters, wherever they may be troubled. We strike at no man. We love the princi ciples of the American party. We believe that the Union of these States rests npon them, and their success is of incalculable importance to the country. The duty to maintain them' is as much more imperative than the claim of jcrsonal friendship, as the love of country should be stronger than affection for friends. Attn ipt to Convict upon tho Teatli of a Monomaniac. ion y We republish, from the Huntsville (Ala.) Democrat, an account of a singular trial re cently bad there, from which it appears that an effort has beta made to convict, tjjh;2 the testimony of a monomaniac, Ab- kerTate, of Madison county, Ala., nnd ?ohx uoK!oy, or Cannon couuiy, leuu., both of whom are hisrhlr respectable men A, t eigiltcen months ego, Mr. Tate . . . , . ... ni-Dir in his jtorcb. A negro man was arrested, convicted and executed for the offence. It is aid, that after conviction, he confess ed hU guilt, and stated that he was bribed by his mistress, who was inimical to Tate, to ierpetrate the deed. Mr. Tate rccov- cred from his wou founds, but with the loss of the use of one arm. It appear that many years before this occurrence, an old woman, who had been a midwife Ia TvU neighborhood, and had received many art of Undnesj rom him! and otherstf that neighborhood, moved to Mississippi, in pursuit of her husband who had abandoned her that after her re-, moral, she became partially deranged, and told 6orae wild stories about those of the neighbors who had been her best friends j and, amongst other things,' said that Tate and Gordon, who then lived with Tate, had committed murders at Tate's house. These stories reached the ears of her old neigh bors in Alabama, bnt were treated as the delusions of a deranged woman. But it seems that Mr. TateV enemies, having failed in the effort to have him assassina ted, have been endeavoring to take his life according to law, by using this old woman as a witness, and endeavoring to connect the subjects of her delusions with two men who disappeared many years ago, but who were unknown to Tate or Gordon. . We are informed that the prosecutor, Bingham, after procuring the ex parte depo sition of this old woman, in which she im plicated Gordon, went last summer to Can non County in this State, and swore out a warrant of arrest for Gordon, who is a poor but honest man, and a good citizen, and used every means to prevail upon him to make such admissions as would corrobo rate the story of the old woman ; telling him that he did not wish to harm him, that he wanted to make a State's witness of him, and instructed the Sheriff to tell him that Mrs. Tate had left her husband and that unless he (Gordon) would confess and become a witness for the State, that Mrs. Tate would do so, and convict Gor don. There is scarcely any punishment too severe for such villainy. Bingham and his accomplice deserve to be driven from the community which they disgrace by their presence. Important Judicial Decision The Supreme Court of Tennessee decided on yesterday in the case of William T. Batton vs. the Xashville and Chattanooga Railroad Company, that the act of 1853-4, ch. 33, sec. 1 and 2, making railroad com panies liable for stock killed by them, their agents or servants, by being run over by their locomotives or cars, is constitutional and valid, and embraces as a police regu lation all companies chartered anterior to the passage of said act, who may commit such, as well as those chartered subsequent ly thereto. This act effects an important change in the common law rule upon the subject, and makes railroad companies liable for inevi table accidents in killing stock, subject to the single exception provided for in the second section of said act, which is, that in such cases no damages shall be recover able by the owners of stock "who may place their stock or procure the same to be placed upon said road to be killed or dam aged." We understand the counsel for the railroad companies intend taking the case by writ of error before the Supreme Court of the United States. For the Daily Patriot. Nashville. IU Manufacture lit SucctaaItt Future Its Post and iU Present Troperity Consid ered in Etlation to iU Supply of Fuel. I desire to say a few things through your paper to tbe citizens of Nashville, in very plain language and with facts and figures, which will strike with a home thrust, at a truth all must feel and with this single remark I close my preface: whatever tend to iU prosperity contributes to my success to the welfare of iU most exalted and humllest citizen. It is a trite Baying and a household axiom, Nashville ought and must become a manufac turing city. Vast sums of money have been spent in the effort to make it so, and it is pain ful to remember the many noble spirits who have buried their all beneath a heap of brick aud mortar in tbe self-sacrificing effort. The failure was not for the want of skill and ener gy, for we never lacked that; but from a cause so remote that the best minds overlook ed or forgot it. It could not have been want of labor, that has been abundant and cheap enough, at least as cheap as it could be had elsewhere, or scarc ity of raw material, nor the lack of supplies necessary to sustain life, for until within a few year?, and even now, provisions are shipped from here in great abundance; much less could the failure in the endeavor to make this a manufacturing city, have arisen from a want of demand for tbe manufactured goods ; the very next rise in tbe Cumberland will present an argument at onoe convincing to the contra ry, in the rapid arrival of boat after boat stag gering beneath mighty loads of wood and iron wares, machinery, Ac. Go to the wharf npon tbe arrival of the next packet from tbe Ohio river and take a seat on a cotton bale, and take a good look at the l igh piles of candlea, soap, wash-boards, chain, bed steads, stoves, castings, wrought iron work, and the bales of cotton domestics, take care they don't slip the bale of cotton from under yon and speed it away to be spua op to make yoor next summer's shirt, and slip a light, soft cushioned rocking chair under you 1 Do you ever see these things go back to Cin cinnati ? No, instead, they are worn out, and all oonsumed here. Some one replies, M by Nahviil is young yvt give her a chance wait till she gets old er" and with such a patient spirit she will always remain youog. But you forget that Nashville is almost old enough to be the grand father of Cincinnati, we have a right to ex. pect more from her on that account the day baspsfrsed wben youth and brains were at a discount, and old age and imbecility stood sponsors to every enterprise of merit. They who onoe thought Nashville ougkt to be a city of manufactories, now know that the must either become so, or else our railroad will rot down beneath the rank bramble, and the green gras rankle in luxanance on many a wvll selected site, where the busy footfall echoed to the tnoie of thrift aud enermr. It la cow at the a-rx the taming oint on I tilts with one step ia the Future, one oa the ' Pt, If It halts,' even, thousands smTer and are pinched with tbe pressure its mighty weight carrries; if it takes one backward step a9 many thousand are crushed to atoms. - Figures aside; the demand for and the price of labor have kept an even pace in Nash ville with the rapid increase in the price of property, till now ; now, tbe value cf property threatens to outstrip the value of labor, and in that event, what does it'avail the poor son of toil to be the landlord of his stately man sion wben bis own labor is so much below par that it can barely yield thin broth and lean cakes u for two." . If the eame cause which operated to slack en the speed of our progress in the past, and to break down our manufactures, still exists then it becomes ns to become scholars to the Past and learn to avoid similar dangers in the future. Now, Luge iron factories will bardly spring up here to-morrow and march right on to success will they f If so, why have they not done so ere now. Look on College hill at the rnin and rubbish, and tell me when nails will be made there again, or why it ever grew tired and stopped f It bad energy and capital, and Ihbor and raw material, and a good demand. And it can have all these again, and let me inquire when will it 6tart? With the same earnest desire, may I ask for your dry-docks and boat yards? your heavy machine works and mam moth wood works to make and work np the walnuts you send abroad and bny back ? All this suggestion is only by way of hint and inuendo, finally inducing the answer to tbe enigma so portentions to the future pros perity of Nashville. There ia but one solution to my mind, and that may be told briefly : I believe Naxhwille has been retarded twenty years behind her growth by the high price oj coal, and this one argument is sufficient to con vince me of this truth, the value of real es tate, of rents and labor, have suddenly began and continued to increase as soon as the first fair prospect opened of cheapening coal to the city, and in proportion as this prospect has grown into a reality, in tbe same proportion has property advanced and trade increased. I am further assured that every man in Nashville recognizes this proportion as being trne, from the fact that they even now look to the day in the future when coal will be cheaper; but whether that confidence is wl founded remains to be seen. Cheap coal is the essential basis of the growth and prosperity of all large cities; it is the indispensable element almost the sole re qninite to success. We can better afford to pny high prices for food temporarily, than for coal. It is as much to the interest of the day labor er as the rich manufacturer, not because it af fords him comfort and lessens bis individual ex penses, but because it builds up other interests which gives a demand for his labor at remu nerating rates. The landed proprietor must have cheap coal to sustain the value of his real estate, for it furnishes the new coiner meaus of employment by which he can afford to own and pay for at home. Nashville must have coal at 10, 12 1-2 and 15 cents per bushel, and she must have it 60on To get it at these rates is to the interest of all, and to effect that object every man in the com munity might well afford to contribute largely of his annual income for the next five years, npon a reasonable guarantee of its final con summation. How this can be accomplished I shall en" deavor to explain. B. Hon. Miarlee Beady.

From the Hontsrillt (A'a ) Democrat, Jan. 10th. - We have rtrely witnessed a trial that more deeply enlisted the attention of our citizens than one which occurred at the Conrt. Hou-e lat week and which lasted for nearly five days. We refer to the trial of Abner Tate and his old man servant George, who were charged with having murdered in November or De cember, 1842, a man whose name was snp $ed to be J. K. Bice; and that of Abner Tate, bis man George, mid John Gordon, who were charged with the murderof a man in the Spring of 1845, whose name was snpposed to . have been Charles B. Sawyers. Mr. Tate is an old and highly respectable citizen of this county, having reMded here for about forty years and alwsj-s borne the character of an iudustrinii, peaceable man, and a good neigh bor. Mr. Gordon ia a citizen of Cannon County, Tennessee, where he has been resi dirg fwr nine years for about ten or eleven years prior to that time he lived with Mr. Tate in this county and was engaged in dri ving a wagon. 11 is character both here nnd in Tennessee was that of an honest, upright, quiet, peaceable, industrious man. Having heard tliat a prosecution was commenced against Mr. Tate, and that he was involved in the charge, he voluntarily came down to the trial. After his arrival a warrant of arrest wa9 issued for him and he was arrested whi n on his way to the Court House, lie went in and asked to be tried withTate,aRd all the par ties were tried at the same time upon both charges. Green B. Strother, Morris K.Taylor, and our Mayor Z. P. Davis, were the presiding Magis trates. D. C. Humphreys, Esq. and R. M. Vannoy, Esq., apeared in behalf of the prose cution. L. P. Walker, Esq., Nich. Davis, Jr., and Iiubinson ds Jones, appeared for the de fendants. We have rarely seen a Justices' Conrt of equal ability. The canse was ably conducted by the counsel on both side9. There was proof that a man named Bice, who was a coach maker and resided in Tuska loosa about the year 1840 or 1841, a member of the firm of Bripgs & Rice, disappeared from Tnskaloosa in 1841 that he was supposed to be deranged when he left, and was traced eight miles South of Tnskaloosa, and was not afterwards heard of. " " It was also proved that one Charles B. Saw yers, of Coffee County, Tennessee left his home in December, 1839 for South Alabama, with a loud of apples, leaving behind a wife and child. That after disposing of his apples he started borne and sold his wagon and team and broughtadroveof horses and again returned to Perry and Marengo Counties, and after selling his horses, started home and reached Tuska loosaon the 26th of June, 1840, on his mute home, aud where he spoke to some of his friends of bis great desire to get home. He did not however reach home h'i9 wife went in search of him, but was unable to trace Kim beyond Tnskaloosa, where he was on the 27th of June, 1840 and not hearing any further account of him, and believing him to be dead she intermarried in January, 1844, with a Mr. Willis. The prosecution was commenced upon the complaint of one D. II. Bingham, who, it seems, now claims to bo a resident citizen of Lauderdale County but who, as the testimo ny disclosed, lived many years ago about Tns kaloosa, has been sometimes travelling with and exhibiting an astronomical panorama, and who according to his own account, as proved has at one time been engsged in building a bridge across the Arkansas River at Little Rock. The warrant of arrest was issued npon the affidavit of a Mrs. Barbara Hazel now of Tisha mingo County, Miss., where she has resided since July ,1845 but who was recentlybrought to this County, by the prosecutor. For many year9 prior to her removal to Tishamingo County she resided in this county iu the im mediate neighborhood of Abner Tate. About the year 185 she was abandonedby her hus band, John Hazel, who settled in Tishamingo county, Miss. After being abandoned by ber husband, she became a midwife and a nurse for the sick, and was employed in that capaci ty by Abner Tate and hi neighbors. After her removal to Miss., and about the latter part of the year 1845, she stems to have coi jured np singular delusions about those who had been her most generous patrons in this county, and fr whom she had previously manifested a strong attachment. She imagined that some of them had accused her of stealing various things that some had pursued her to cowhide her for stealing, and amougst other things that a young gentlemen was claiming to have been her partner in her professional business of mid wifi? arid it wa9 about the same time that sh seems to have ascertained that her friends Tale and Gordon were murderers, and that George had been trying to to murder ber with an axe. Slre than ten years had elapsed sinco the old wo man was in this county, and it whs said th-tt a, number of persons who had seen her thought! her to be sane, and the court bouse was thronged dnring her examination. Sheisalout sixty-live years of age, and though nnedncated, seems to have had a vigorous intellect and a very strong will of Iter own. Her account of he supposed murders very marvelous and well calculated to staggi r the credulity of the most credulous, even if told of a company of highwaymen but it wai narrated with a particularity and minuteness of detail that seemed to arrest attention and to impress persons unacquainted with the parties ac cused, or with the trne state of her miud, with the idea that it might bk ti:tk. The cross exiimiuatinn however of the wit ness, and the clear proof of the other delusions of the witness, soon satisfied the court and intelligent bystanders who listened to the examination, tli.it she was a monomaniac and still laboring under the in-ane delusions wnieh took possesoii-n of her mind ten years ago. It was not shown that Rice, who was alleged by the prosecutor to have been one of the mur dered men, had ever been seen North of Tuk--ftloosa, nor was any account given of Stwyers between the 27th of June, 180, when he waa seen at Tuskaloos ou bis way home, and the Spring of 1845, abont five jears after, when he was alleged to have been murderd in this county, or that either of the men supposed to have been murdered, was ever kuowa to either Ta'e or Gordon. The case was submitted without argument, and the Court, ater a few moments' consulta tion, discharge! the accused and annonned that no one of them had even the !mdow of a doisbt as to ti e entire innoceuce of the parties charged. It was a matter of surprise to many that a man who was astrnrgt-r iq our midst, should have undertaken this prosecution, at so lale a period. The testimony disclosed that be bad assert ed to severul -ersorr in Teiines" that Rice was bis tiewhew, to another that Rice wu hi cousin, aiid to another that he and Rice hud betu particular friends at d at one time mem bers of the same corj-a, and to others that he was prompted by a sense of moral duty to bis country. Bat, there was other testimony, be ing proof of hiit own decUrstions, tending strongly to show, that he was instigated by the miftress of a fclave named Jacob, executed ia this connty lat spring for an attempt to asatsi nste Tate, and that his reward wm to be, ia the event of;ccei, the high disUuciiun of be ing ber seventh husband.
