J Je Capitol. '
Tlte Patriot is embellished this morning
with a superb engraving of the State Cap
itol, for the nse of which we are indebted
to S. D. Morgan-, Esq. Jt is accompanied
by a description of the building furnished
us ly a correspondent, whose good taste in
such matters is beyo.nl question.
rur f u ii 1 1 I Aff.rir.
Under tlx apprehension that quite n
n itnber of our citizens are unacquainted
with the operations of our lrn'iiicipal gotr
-rnmetit, and that they, perhaps, totally
fail to acquaint themselves with the opera
tions of the machinery which woiks the
body corporate of this city, it is thought
that a series of short papers in relation to
our internal affairs may not prove uninter
I'stinir to them, nor unacceptable even to
tiie general reader.
Every man in the government should
make himself acquainted with the opera
tion and policy of the government under
which he lives General, State and Muni
cipal. Every form of government is simply
a system of agencies, and officers of govern
ment merely act as trustees for the commu
nity at large. Therefore, the people com
posing the community or government should
keep a watchful eye on their agents and
servants. Money collected by taxation,
for purposes of general good, should be
properly expended, and it is the duty, as
well as tlie privilege, of the payor to keep
himself informed as to the disposition made
of his means. And whilst it is the citizen's
duty to watch over the manner in which
the public money is expended, it is no less
his bounden duty to "contribute cheerfully
and liberally for every purpose required by
the public good." These truths are the
simplest ideas of political economy.
Tlie points proposed to be discussed will
be in the following order, to wit:
1. The Water Works, embracing the
whole subject, past, present and prospec
tive. 2. Our Public School System.
3. The Public Debt of the Corporation
5. The means of the City its solvency,
0. Conclusion Nashville in the future.
These questions will be presented in as
brief a manner as possible, and it is to be
hoped that they may gain the attention of
the people of this city. It is highly prob
able that some of our old citizens those
who ruled tlie destinies of the city ten,
twenty and thirty years go possess even
more information than it is possible for us
to obtain. Uut such information is con
fined to a limited number of persons, while
a large portion of our citizens do not even
pretend to be "'posted tip" in municipal af
fairs. Hence the apology for making, as
far as practicable, an exhibit of these af
fairs. Tlie absence of statistics and detail
ed reports is seriously felt, and prevents
that clear and comprehensive collection of
facts so desirable. Nevertheless, a tolera
bly correct general idea of the past man
agement of affairs can be given from sour
ces of information at hand. And if errors
and mistakes should unavoidably occur, we
will cheerfully correct them, when pointed

In answer to the sneers and slanders of
the Democratic press upon the Ametiean
candidate for the Vice Presidency, we let
the Patriot of the Hermitage speak. In
his last will and testament, he says :
"I bequeath to my w 1! beloved aon, Andrew
J. Doneison, the Hon of Samuel Ionelson, de
ceased, the elegant swonl presented to me by the
State of Teuuesee, with this injunction, that
he fail not to Use it when necessary in support
and protection of our glorious Union, and for
he protection of the constitutional rights ot
our beloved country, should they be assailed
by foreign enemies or domestic traitors. 'I hi,
from the great change in my worldly ff.iir
of lute, is, with my blessing, all I can bequeath
him, doing justice to those creditors to whom
1 a.u responsible. This bequest is made as a
memento ot the high regard, affection and es
teem I bear for him a a high-minded, honest
and honorable man."
Maj. Donelson was reared beneath (ien.
Jackson's roof, was his uid-de camp during
his glorious military career, and his bosom
confidant during the trying scenes of his
eight years Presidency. The great hero
knew him, and dying has left on record,
his attestation of his virtues and servi
ces. He thought Maj. Donelson worthy to
be the depository of a cherished tribute of
which, his beloved Tennessee, in the full
ness of her gratitude, had made him the re
cipient. The men who once professed to
venerate Jackson's memory and esteemed
his opinions the essence of wisdom, now
for the promotion of party purposes, revile
and traduce a man whom he considered
"high-minded, honest utid honorable."

During the delay occasioned by the ina
bility of the House of Representatives to
i organize itself, it was feared by some that
the delay would be protracted to such great
length that the fiscal affairs of the nation
would begin to stiff T for want of legislative
action. The Finance Committee of the
Senate, it seem, participated in this fear.
Oa the 4th of February, Mr. Hunter, of
Virginia, Chairman of that Committee, re

reference a few days since. The GaielU is

last Monday. Dr. J. W. RicnanDsos presided,
assisted by R. S. XokthooTT as Secretary.
Mn.j. R. G. Ellis, Robt. Jonks ,id R. S Nortb.

resolutions. They prepared and offered the
following which were unanimously adopted:
Jies'dreJ, That we regard the nomination of
Mtllard Fillmore for the Presidency and An

tiicir well kuown conservatism and devotion
to the welfare of the country, we fe-.l our con

county who desire a truly conservative admin

requested to give their support to men, who
have proven themselves so worthy of public

Dr. Richardson, the Chairman, being londly
called upon for a seech, arose and addressed
the meeting in his peculiarly able and convinc

hold of o plain, tli4 nothing but strong preju
dice could prevent conviction.
Dr. Richardson was followed bp Msj. J. II.

happy style, inspiring those who heard him
with euthusiiism. Mj. Palmer is an able

Col. E. R. Osborne next came to the stand
and spoke at some ietigth upon the political
topics of the day, and showed himself not on
l conversant with them, but eminently quali
tied to di-coss them. At the close of Ins ad
dress Col. 0-borne offered the following reso
lot ion which was unanimously adopted:
lUmdced, That this meeting heartily approve
the course of ihe Iluthtrj'vrd Ttltgrujth, and
that we recommend it to tlie public as a faith
ful and able advocate and exponent, of the prin
ciples of the American Party.
It was then ascertained that Col. Jno. A
McEwen, of Nashville, had just arrived on ihe
ears and was present, upon which he was loud
ly called for, and came to the stand greeted
with deafening app'ause. He led off in hap
piest style, and spoke tor one hour and a half,
being frequently interrupted by theloydc eer
mg of the audience. After he had concluded,
Ir Richardson proposed three cheers for J. dm
A. McEwen, which were given iu the hearl'est
manner. The assemblage dispersed am dlong,
loud, and deep cheering aud huzzaing fur Fill
more and Donelson.
We look upon the nthtisiasm displayed at
this meeting as showing that, the feelings ot
the people are deeply enlisted for Fillmore and
Donetson. The political skies are brightening,
and the Lright star of hope has already arisen.

follows in regard to the action of the t iuciu

Although 'Ruck" will go into Convention
hacked by all the power Pennsylvania can
wield, he will stand iu need of much addition
al stretith to cnattle him to succeed. It be has
advantage through friends and tlie advantage
of Ktsition, he will also encounter the draw
back of determined enemies. Pierce aud
Douglas will both be in the field, and if they
can do no more they can prevent the nomina

will be a feature in the struggle. Failing to

The two Powers which hjld the coast engage thciiu
selves to maintain only the number of light vessel

This convention, concluded seperately between
these two Powers, shall form part as an ann i ot

As deliberations are taking place between Aus
tria, France, Great Britain and the Sublime Porte,
to assure to the Christian subjects of the Sultan
their religious and political rights, Russia shall be
invited, wheu peace is made, to as-oiate herself

A .railroad to the Pacific Will It Puy.
Mr. Samuel 11. Curtis, an accomp'ished en
gineer, has furnished h long article to the Na
tional Intelligencer, in favor of '"the Platte
Valley Poute" for a Railroad to the Pacific.
He says that this route passesthrough, or easi
ly connects with Nebraska, Utah, Washing
ton and Oregon Territories, and is sasceptible
of settlement iu all the entire distance. Iu
rela'iou to the probability of remuneration, he
gives the following estimate:
Transportation of 220,000 passengers,
at $108 each, 23,700,000
Transtortation of 84C,4C0 tons of freight,
at $73, 61,71M,5S0
Sixty millions gold dust, extra fi ieght,
at" 3 percent, 1,800,000
Government service, mails, military.
st res, men, it 5, 7,000,000
Way busiuess, 20 iter cent, 18,b7o,."ll6
dross income, 113,221,8'J6
Deduct 50 er cent, for cost of run
Net proceed per annum, $53,6H,948
About fort- percent, on the estimated cott.
If objections are made to the items of this es
tim.itethen is a vast snm to be added, as the
trade U-tween Europe aud Asia, the trade
of twt hundred millions worth eight hundred
millions of people, and the vast increase in
that trade created by a direct and speedy
mode of communication.
I have thus presented some of the arguments
favoring these points.
1. The lower route, latitude 32 3 , J. the
inoMt desirable route for a Pacific railroad.
2. A railroad will roiiiet0 with ocean steam
3. A railroad citing $140,000,000 will pay
a large dividend to stockholders.
Tliere are other Httnt arguments in fvor
of such a railrood, which I will not elaborate.
It would be a military poer, a political con
servator, a social Umil a commercial channel
for the world, and a national triumph. The-e
are national arguments, superior to dollars and
cents, which ought to accelerate Ihe progress
of the work and establish its utility.

The United States District Court, at J.ffer
