The good humored countenance of a member of
tlie “peculiar institution" which caused so much
excitement through the land during the last can
vass for President, ami since, appeared in our
sanctum yesterday, on a mission, which is ever
welcome, from Dr. N. B. Tucker ami his accom
plished lady. A basket was placed upon our
table which contained some of the “firstlings of
the marriage fea-t." and whose destruction occa
sioned immense delight. Be return thanks for
the kindly remembrance, and wish the young
couple a journey through life unclouded by
Jack Mathews Again.
Were we asked, as our opinion, (bared on the
sense of taste) where one could get the finest fla
vored cigar and a cock-tail made u hi St. Charles,
together with the oldest amt best brands of wine,
we should without hesitation say, go to Jack
Mathk vs’. Jack has always on hand a supply
of the best, and, though we have travel' I “ some,"
we must say that for good-nature, attention to his
patrons, and a knowledge of all tbeliule miuuthc
of his profession. Jack has the palm.
The Gold Mine Again.
In the ‘wo previous issues of our paper we
stated the reported dlscovi ry of Hold by the
workmen ei. -tg< 1 at the Arte .dan Well. Since
then we learn that the in -rcdulous have pro
nounced it a lc ax, and the pa} rs abroad that it
was the intention of those here to speculate on
the credulous. Now all we, have to say about this
matter is this—As » ufsi rs . it • n it been in
jured in anyway by the report, they can have
m> reason toeomjd ft : and as for our townsmen,
)V. 1
\Vi merely .“ra!“-l that several of our must relia
ble citizens had found gold there, an l as we have
no rea-gin to doubt their word, ::- the existence
of Gold there has not been proved a myth, we arc
yet in doubt.

It is not p'dole, in our judgment that the
Smith Carolina hanks should hold out more
than eight or tea days. By their own show
ing. made oil the first of November, tine h
but ten cents on the dollar in specie with
which to rede'-m tludr issues. Tlie millions
circulation now being returned upon them will
i soon exhaust the vaults*of Smith Carolina
hanks. They will not only be driven to sus
p.-iiftion, but perhaps to absolute bankruptcy.
(ieorgia bunks will somi follov in the wake
of those of South Carolina, Her bunks have
been more prudently managed than those of
the adjacent Stale, and of emir.- are better
able to withstand the pro-sure n w afiecting
them. Still the (ieorg.a ban!, must go down
with those of Virginia and the Carol nuts.
We cannot conceive the present financial
condition of (he country half so favorable as
in 1S17, or in i ^ >J. an ! ii is a thousand-fold
worse than in 1S *»7. since the cau-es now ope

and arise from political and not ephemeral
commercial facts and circumstances.
W e are not alarmists, but would advise our
readers that such precautionary measures
should now be adopted as are adapted to the

John Mitchell, the Irish patriot, who is
said to have permanently fixed his residence
in Baris, writes from that city to his friends
in this country: ,
We found a miserably cold and wot sum
mer and autumn here, which made all my
household sick, as we were just coining out
of the balmy climate of America. Either the
seasons here are all altered for the worse
these twelve year, past, or else I am spoiled
for an European climate. I only wish l had
that Alabama plantation, and I would live on
i it all the year round.

Senator Trumbull made an address at
Springfield. Illinois, a few days since, an
extract from which we find in the Cincinnati
Commercial, which says the speech was in
spired by 31 r. Lincoln, and expresses his
views in full. If this be so—and we see no
reason to doubt it—the speech is an import
ant one, as being the first authoritative indi
cation of the policy of the new administra
tion respecting slavery and recession.
Mr. Lincoln, although the candidate of the
Republican party , as Chief Magistrate, "ill
neither belong to that inr any other partv.
When inaugurated, he will he the President
of the country, and the whole countrv; and
l doubt not will be as ready to defend and
protect the In ate in which he has not received
a solitary vote, against f ai r" i; — n*
upon its con.-:itutioi^l rights, as the one in
which he has received the larges! major 'v.
While they, by whose vut be has been des
ignated as ( bief Magistr.i o of this Repul be.
v.ill expect him to maintain and cany for
ward the principles on \vhi< h he was elected,
they know that in doing m. no encroachment*
will be made on the reserved rights of any of
the States. They know that the Fedora!
Coveminent is one of the defi-gatt'd power
that it can do nothing except the authorilv
for the act can he found in the instrument
which created it and that all powers, not con
i', rial are rc-iT'.ed title Mates or the people
of the State*. When their political oppo
nents have charged the Kcpuulicans wit It
Abolitionism or attributed to them a desire
to interfere with slavery in the States, or
I 1 t ought t
do , i. the reply has invariably been, that the
p' opn who made the b i icral (.iuvcl’Uim.nt
did not think proper t.» conhr t,u it ,-n<h

The New York Journal of Commerce, nneol

"The llepublican Administration now in pros

Harper's Ferry ought certainly to be sen
sitive on the subject of slavery, but it gave its
, vote J7H for Bougies, 275 for Bell, and 17
for Breckinridge. From this it appear- that
the Henioevaey of Harper's Ferry do not
regard secession as a remedy against John
Brown raids.

learned from one of the pupils of McNair’s
Academy, (says The New Orleans Crescent
ubtho lilitli ult..) who came down from Sum
mit yesr.erday. that about one o’clock in the
morning me of th teachers who happened to
he up, discovered the Academy to be on fire.
He immediately gave the alarm, but so rap
i lly did tin- flai.u s spread, that the inmates
were only able to su'e their lives with what
clothing they stood in. The loss is a heavy
one on Mr. McNair, as lie was unable to save
a book or piece of furniture, and the.students
lose all their clothing. A wry strong suspi
cion exists in the minds of the people of .Sum
ndi, that the fire was the work of an incen
diary. i
