Via Cacz, September, 21, 1855.
Eds Delta : We appear to have fallen into mel
ancholy days, indeed. The revolution which look,
ed so premising for the regeneration of this unhap
py land, now presents a most complicated and un
The actual condition of Mexico may be thus
summed up. The tyrant at whose feet Liberty was
bleeding, having been deposed and expelled by a
J onerous and spontaneous effort on the part of the
'uros, or the pure republicans ; the first great step
, towards the restoration of the sovereignty to the
people was accomplished. The next object was, ia
accordance with the plan of Ayntla the Magna
Cliartd of the bona fid revolutionists that some of
the chiefs of the movement should assemble at the
capital, and take immediate measures for the es
tablishment of a permanent government upon the
bases put forth iu said plan, the other chiefs to ei
ercioe ia the meanwhile, each in his respective Slate
or district, the powers delegated or conferred on
aim by that plan.
We have seen how this pnrpose was defeated or
postponed ia the usurpation of the supreme power
by General Carrera, under the name of a provision
al Central Government, and upon the pretext o(
supporting the revolutionary plan. The eagerness
and indecent baste with which the European diplo
matic cot pa recognised snd felicitated this spurious
government, was in itself sufficient, had other evi
dence been wanting, to stigmatize it as a mere con
servative reaction. The sequence proved the jus
tice of tbis suspicion. The diplomatic corps dis
covering its egregious error endeavored, rather
awkwardly, it must be admitted, to recede from the '
false position. . i
This withdrawal of their countenance and moral
weight gave the fatal blow to the puny, unsupport
ed, and almost totally ignored government, the for
eign bankers and money-lenders refusing to make
loans to an administration, which, to use an laell
f ant phrase, their respective national represent ives
had dropped like a hot potato." The conse
quents was foreseen, and the eniphemeral govern
ment clotH-d its exUtence some ten days aero by the
abd cdtiou of Carrera, and the Republic of Mexico
reii'Sins mcffiJa, (headless,) without even the name
of a Federal Government, the chief authorities at
the Capital being the military commander of the
garrison, Gciirl La Vega, and the Civil Governor
of the District, Gen. Minon.
Mt snwhiie, Alvarcg remains inactive at Guervs
co, fifty miles from the capital, and Comotifort is
quietly carrying out the plia in GuaDiyuitO.
la the Northern routes, Uarory Tamarithad pro
nouncd ia favor of the "Conservdores," having
pot forth, some time nince, his plan of So Luis,
which profi'Mi'S to be a modification of the plan of
Ayutla, but which is in effect an emasculation of
the sum'. We have no advices front that quarter
since their receipt of the intelligence of Carrera's
renunciation. Titers are rumors, however of has
tihtied betw en the forces of Iraro and those of M
dauri, but as yet no confirmation thereof. - "
The latter General (Vidauri) appears to be per
forming an sltocether independent role, and wa do
tot know whether to regard him as acting in con
cert with the other chiefs of the revolution, or as
determined on carrying out a separata sovereignty
fir himself, and erecting the States of New Leon,
Chihuahua, Sao Luis Pototi, and part of Zacatecas,
into au independent Republic
Thus I have exhibited a rude outline of the very
enfavorabte prospect for a speedy solution of the
difficulties which distract the ountry.
There Is no doubt that four-fifths of the popula
tion sre strongly in favor of ths Plan of Ajutla,
and liberal, constitutional, representative govern,

For the Kaihvins True Whlf.
We are surprised at the apathy cf our citizens
to the cultivation of choice fruits. Niue-teiiths
of the intelligent, industrious, pains-taking and
economical people, who will busy themselves
twelve or fourteen bonrs a day in their ordi
nary pursuits, will entirely neglect providing
themselves and their families with this luxury,
though they ruey have ample grounds fur the
purjMe, every way fitted for producing it in
We call it a luxury, but it is more properly
one of the necessaries of life, and for the want
of it, ersons frequently become diceased, or
continue so, if disease is indnced from other
canscs, wlien the free use of eeasonable, well
ripened fruit would Lave restored Uieiu at one
fiftieth part of the expense incurred by apoth
ecaries' and Doctors' bill. Who ever beard
of an ailing family, whether adults or children,
who indulged freely In wholesome fruits, and
abstained from the made-up dishes of the cooks!
But it is not as a corrective or medicine on
ly, that we deem fruit invaluable as an article
of diet. It Las a direct money value, estima
ble in dollars and cents, for the amount it con
tributes aa food to the human system. This is
conclusively proved, both theoretically and
jract,ca, for accurate analysis Las shown
t! wit cultivated fruit contain large proportions
fnutritive matter, and experience equally
projes that whelj fruil enters largely into the
"diet of the family, a corrcspontlir diminution
cf other food is always paruit. Aa profit,
then, is directly concerned la the cultivation
of good fruit, we Lope we may command the
favorable attention of our readers for a mo
ment, while advocating Us increased cultiva
tion. Many residence in the city, and nearly all
jn tie country, have yards or grounds suffi
ciently extensive to admit of the cultivation
of some choice fruit tree and, when they
are too limited for these, a few we'l selected
prr.pj-vltei csn svldom w aui suitable soil for
rooting or a favorable wall for climbing, with
their prolifio branches. .The yards even of the
city of Nashville, well planted and cultivated
with vines, wonldjield no inconsiderable pro
portion of tBe grapes required by its citizens.
Tet, how few tables in the city, or even in the
country, are supplied with this delicious fruit
from their ample surroundings 1
The Strawberry is one of the most delicious,
as it ia one of the most wholesome of fruits,
end a patch four rod3 square, if judiciously se
lected and cicely cultivated, . would yield an
abundance for a large family," et not ,"one
household out of every hundred in the Union,
is supplied with any, except sacb aa they boy
or gather from on tilled meadows.
The Cherry is a hardy tree, a prolifio bearer,
and a most delicious fruit, If the fine varieties
be selected, yet you can scarcely fird a good
cherry in this section of the Union.
. . i ne Jrear? . ine, reacn, ana . the rium , are
abundant bearers, and the richness of their fla

or without tho tropics. They have, of late,
Wa eubject to thoir respective scourges, dis
ease, blight; yellows, and curculia but a mod
erate share of attention lo their proper treat
ment and remedks. will remove each, and af
ford an ample return to each as will give a
small part of their time to cultivate tuem. -
" If objections ."be etill ' made to the nice and
discriminating attention required by the fore
going fruits, what possible excuse can we frame
lor tue neglect ot.tnat naray, eeii-sustaining,
universally acceptable" fruit, the Applet This,
the King of American fruits will grew every
where, produce abundantly, and of the choicest
flavor, provided only, lhat a suitable position,
fertile soil, and ' the best varieties adapted to
the locality, bo adopted. If objection can be
alleged against the cultivation of any or each
of the other fruits, none can be successfully
maintained against this. It is a fruit suited to
all tastes, as it runs through any conceivable
shade of flavor; it is in full season from , July
to June, and is equally adapted for nse when
plucked from the tree, as when prepared by an
almost infinite variety of forms by the. moat
fckillfut cjok.- ; - V"-.-.:
We would suggest to pur readers, especially
those 'who aie about -to make a plantation of
fruits, to be careful in their selection, also the
standing and notoriety of the' Nprsery men
they purchase of. Another desideratum is the
training of the trees in the nursery suitable for
oar .climate all fruit trees should be trained
low in tLis climate. The protection of the stem
aud main branches, and the shading of the
soil in which the roots find their support, from
the powerful rays of the Bah, are absolutely
necessary to the production Iff frnit. This is
to be effected only by working and training the
trees with a 1 low bead, and encouraging a
thrifty growth. We have this well exemplified
in the native forest trees. When forest growth,
their united beads afford ample shade, but-if
standing alone, every tree protects its own
stem and roots, throwing out low and wide-
spreading branches for the pnrpose. . ,-'-.
. We look with eagerness to the time when
the South, with t.er selected varieties of Eu
ropean and American frnit, brought njon
Southern grown stocks, will not only be able
to compete with tbe Northern States, but ex
cel. vWe have -tbe climate and soil, and all
that devolves upon us is a little diligence and
perseverance. .. . - - ' V, -

'' ., Our ICaas Meeting. . '.-
The Mass Meeting of the American Party In
this place, on Saturday last, fully met the expecta
tions of its most enthusiastic friends. Besides
many from a distance, die Councils of Old Knox,
came thronging in, in their strength, and before
the hour of speaking arrived, our streets were
alive with hundreds of "SaniV boys, eager to re-
attest tneir attachment to tneir patriotic cause, and
to enlist with fresh zeal under tbe banner of 58.
At 10 o'clock, the procession was formed, and the
multitude under tbe lend of Uen. .J. w. Gillespie,
proceeded to Methodist Hill where every prepartion
bad been made for theiraccommodation.
The Ladles the natural ornaments of the occa
sion always loveable, but more especially so when
leading their charms to their country 'a cause. Pre
sented an array sufficient to incite the most ungal
lant of Sams vast army to Mdeeds of nobler daring."
The meeting was organized by the appointment
oi ins iouowing u ill certs
- Trendent i MAJ. F. S. HEISKELL, of Knox.
.Viee-PretidenU: Cot. Jahks Asdkrsosi. Capt.
Josktb Jacksos, of Knox; Col. Man. Maetim, of
ieuiora. . . .
Seeretartee : Jas. O. Lctthill, and Jso. M.
Flimiko, of Euox.
The President of the Meeting then submitted tbe
following synopsis of principles and resolves, which
were adopted by acclaim.
Whereat, It is customary on all such occasion as
tin", where a political party is holding a Mass Meet
ing or Convention, for such party to avow ; in some
explicit lorm tneir creeo. ana wnereas, the American
Prtv have this day assembled in Knoxville, in laree
oumoers, tney maae uia louowing report, which
thev propose for adoption by tbis meeting '
r irsi, AioericauB iw rum America, oy wbicu is
meant that Americans ehall make and execute our
laws, and fill all offices of honor and profit, both at
OUH1T7 HUd HUIUIU,
Second, The maintenance of this Union, and tbe
compromises of this Constitution faithfully carried
out . ..... . ...
Tliird,' The absolute exclusion from the Ameri
can Party, of all sectional doctrines, and the disuse
of the nm influence, or organization of the
American Party, to advance any measure abist
the constitutional rijrhta of tbe- States, the httau
tion or effect of which shall b to endanger the
prosperity of the Uitioa.- '
; fourth, UoUnivjhMhe assamptions of power by
the Pope of RomSturough his Bishops, Prelate,
Priests, or MiristaUiA, Catholic Church, as
Anti-Republican iirptmciple, and dangerous to the
liberties of th people. . ' .
Fifth, Thorough organization in the naturalization
laws of the Federal Governmeat, with such altera
tions aud amendments, as the interest of the coun
try demand. -
Sixth, The enactment of more stringent laws for
the protection of tbe purity of the ballot-boi, by the
State of Tennessee. -
SnemA, Free and reliable Common Schools for
the education of all classes of the people, withHh
Holy Bible as a Text-Book in all our in.-tita'.iom of
learning. , -
- ReeJeed, That the ABasrican rrty, but one year
old in the South, and nofnore than two la- the
North, see nothing In the result of the - late
elections to discourage tbem, but much to stimulate
them in their tfiVu to save the country from
foreign rule. . -. '" '
Retolved, That ocr Na'iocal Admlnletration, by
its general course of official conduct, together with
the Papal power, of tbis aad other countries, de
eerves, and should receive tbe nailed condemnation
of ttte American people.
Reiolvtd, That having every confidence is the
wisdom, integrity, and pa'-riotiara, of the American
Party, we pledge ourselves to the cordial and seal
oos support, of the nominee of the National Co an
cil, for the Presidency an i Vice-Presidency, when
such nominations are made.
Rmolmd, That we tender cur thaoks to Hon. M.
P. Gentry, for the fraak, open, and eloquent defence
he made of our prutes;, in the lata contest for
Governor; and tho he lost kU clertJun by some
2,000 vote, It la a source of consolation to know
that he received a cutjoritj of the Ug'ii acd native
voters of the Suta.
Hon, Andrew J. Davison, was thea intrndaed.
aud aJirecl the aaJ'snce for icora Ihtn lo
hours. It was no ordinary anxiety manifested by
the people to hear him. " They had witnessed tbe
unscrupulous attempts of the AnU-American press
to depreciate his talents, and malign his character.
They had heard Gov. Johnson, in this place, dcri
dingly single him out as a type of the American
Democrats and stigmatize him as a "disappointed,
soured and rejected Democrat," and they had seen,
also, that he bad not even escaped the ungenerous
asaults of the " Government Organ. Tbey were,
therefore, anxious to see and hear him for them
selves. Nor were they disappointed.
Inasmuch as his speech will be published, we
will not attempt to give even a synopsis of it. It
was replete, from beginning to end, with over
-whelming facts and arguments, n resented in a clear.
forcible and convincing manner. His defense of
the American Party, and his exposition of the cor
ruptions and imbecility of the Pierce dynasty, were
made with a masterly band, and we thought .that
tha worshiDoers of the Administration, if anys uch
' were oresent. must have felt Verily ashamed of their
devotion, , His vinaicauon oi nimseu irom me
defamation of his traducers, was thorough and con
vincing. The severity with which he . handled
Nicholson, but more especially. Gov. Johnson, was
sU-ouz. but not more bo than -was merited, and we
cave no aoubt, tour-nuns oi uis nearer jusuueu
himboth in spirit and language, when he denounced
Gov. Johnson, as be cna, as. a "miseaoie calumnia
Mai. "Donelson.' the assertions of his enemies to
the contrary notwithstanding, is an able man, clear
and strong in his reasoning, wen educated in tne
political history of our country, and possessed of an
independence in the promulgation of bis sentiments.
which entitles him to the -confidence of every true
"American." . -. ., 7. ; ... , i
Hon." iL' P. Gentry next appeared upon the
stand, and was saluted with an enthusiastic erect
irjsr bv those who had rallied with pleasure around
, his standard, i He looked not disheartened, nor cast
. down by his recent defeat, but fresh and vigorous,
-as when be bore aloft OOr glorious banner in the
heat of batt'e. " He expressed his gratitude for the
manifestation of confidence East Tennessee had
shown him. 1 His view pf the late .contest and the
prospect of the coming one, was philosophic and
happily expressed. He said that though he was
deteaied, be - was rejoiced to see the evidences
.around him, that the same aoldies who bad rallied
so nobly under bis leadership, were not conquered,
but ready to enlist with renewed zeal under that ol
another. Ou being asked if he was conquered,
"No." he replied,-." Iain not conquered. At Lex
ington and Concord and Bunker's Hill, our fathers
achieved much the same triumphs that we have
achieved lu.v lrcima and Tennessee and Alabama,
yet the fires of Liberty still burned upon the altars
of thrir hearts the recollection of their homes and
fire sides still nerved their arms, till the shouts of
- victory swelled from their hosts at Yoi ktown. - And
though our wings have given way on either hund
though cur column has been pierced in the centre,
yet our camp fires are still burning brightly the
thousands enlisted under 'SamV glorious flag still
feel that tbey are fighting for Truth, for Liberty,
and their God, aud ere long a nation will own their
final victory, " As for me, I am not conquered, but
am just beginning to fight ", . .
His speech throughout was beautifully eloquent,
and was well calculated to inspire the hearts of those
who heard him, with fresh attachment to their prin
ciples. .......,:: -
Hon. John Bell, whose name is a tower of strength
to any cause, next appeared upon the stand, and
entered into a calm, yet bold, masterly and fearless
defense of the American party, but a threatening
"cloud coining up suddenly, he was forced Ho deler
his remarks, and the crowd dispersed.
- At nijrht a brilliant display of transparencies sig
nalised the regathering of Sam's forces in front of
the Court House, "When Col. .Bell resumed his
speech. His entire speech was more than two
hours iu length and we regret that bur space
will not permit a more extended notice. We
are assuied, ' however, that we will yet have the
pleasure of publishing it, and then we hope that every
voter in the State .will ponder well his arguments.
Tbey, who charge John "Bell with lukewarmncss

rpHERE are features connected with this mill worthy of)

those wt-hio to purchase a Feed Mill.
Iu mechanical ooostrnetion and adaptation to the pur
poses designed, to crush and grind ear corn. Iu great ca
pacity, while doing an immense work with extraordinary
ease, its durability is amply provided for. The complete
and entire portableness of the Little Giant, rendering iu
gretter convenience for plantation and farm nee impossi
ble. It requires no mechanical aid or bill of expense to put
it up; anv farm band er servant can put up and set ore
running in half au hours time. The convenience with which
the sweep may be applied to tan horizontal aa Is most
aaiiHl or over bead, and the miU mav be aaailv attached
where steam or'water Is used. The power It takes, requiring I
ene and two horses The quantity and quality of product,
10 to SO bushels of good feed meal per hour, according to the
degree of fineness ground, and tha siae mi!L ' It is the
cheapest mill, all thiugseousidered, there ia before the pub-

Another thing connected with the Little Giant, as a pa-
tent, and worthy of note, ia the f ct that there ha b.-en no
Patent Right specolatingor huckstering about the eonntry,
as U usual wi ih the thousand bungling mke-shift ImjUe- I

that they will supply the ArrieulinrslwU and Stock raisers
