August 3, 1839. Tennessee Legislature.—The two i.... „r t1.,.,. assembled at Nashville op the 4th inst., and completed their organization by the election of the following officers: In the Senate, Tazewell IV. Newman, of Franklin, was elected Speaker; John McClearan, of Smith, Principal Clerk; Franc. M. Paul, of Shelby, Engrossing Clerk, and M1'. Bennett, of Bedford, Door keeper. Incite House, W. C. WittTTiionNE, of Maury, was chosen Speaker; T. E. S. Russworm.of Rutherford, Principal desk; Mr. Dewolf, of Haywood, First Assistant Clerk; John A. Campbell, of Bradley, Engrossing Clerk; James Carter, of Hardin, Principal Door-Keeper, and E. P. Wade, of Marshall, Assistant Door Keeper. Gov. Conway has offered a re ward of $200 for the arrest of Jacob Crissman, who killed John Riggs, on Up per Surrounded Hill, in Jackson county, on the 18th tilt. Crissman was wounded on the right shoulder by ft gun-shot, sind cut himself severely in the ielt wrist, in killing Riggs. Geokuia Election.—The returns from this State show that Gov. Brown is re elected by a large majority. The Third Congressional District is conceded to the Opposition. The balance of the Districts nre regardnd as Democratic, though the vote in the Seventh and Eighth is close. —- -»• — Dusty Cotton . - The j\tw Orleans Price Current of the 21th ult., says? “ We notice much complaint of the quali ty of the new receipts, as they are found to embrace an unusually large proportion of leafy and dusty cotton for so early a period of the season. The dusty parcels, as we have already repeatedly stated, are PYrepdlnfrlv difficult nf snip ns mnsf nr. ders received are imperative for their re jection. Under these circumstances they must accumulate, and if sold at all it must he at a much wider difference in price than lias hitherto prevailed. The remainder of the old crop, of a similar character (some 7000 bales) still weighs upon the market without demand, und with prices entirely nominal.” The Arkansas Conference of the M. JO. Church, South, will be held at Searcy, White county, beginning on the 9th of November next. R^P The democracy of Weakley coun ty, Tennessee, give a grand barbecue to the Hon. J. D. C. Atkins, at Dresden, on the 19th inst. Douglas in California.—The Little Giant is loathed and despised by the De mocracy of the South, and the recent elec tion in California shows that he has no strength in that young and prosperous State. Tne friends of the Administration have abundant cause to congratulate them selves on the result, for it is evidently an endorsement of Mr. Buchanan and a swing ing rebuke to Mr. Douglas. McKibben, Douglas’ confederate in treason, has been repudiated by the Democracy of Califor nia. Mr. Latham, the Democratic can didate for Governor, who has been elected by an overwhelming majority, sustained Mr. Buchanan and defended his Admin istration on every stump. Senator Gwin, who has stood by the President in his l,c compton war, and who has opposed Doug las. has been sustained by the Democracy of California. Wo repeat that the result of the recent election in that State is most gratifying to the friends of the Adminis tration and the Democratic party through out the Union. Douglas will soon take his place with Van Buren and the little gang of traitors who, for vile, selfish pur poses, have betrayed the party that wanned them into life.— [Mem. Ava. The firm a tv' decided stand taken and adhered to by the opponents of Douglas and his vagaries. i» beginning to tell throughout the Union, and wc doubt whether his name wilt be heard in the Democratic National Convention. ‘‘The way of the transgressor is hard.” -The question of the future annexation of West Florida to Alabama, id exciting con siderable interest among the citizens of both State?. During the approaching election in Florida, it will form o:n of the brintipal top ic»o£ consideration. | Little Rock True Dpmocrat.— i This worried and spiteful sheet makes a j “ splutter nnd splurge ” in its issue of the 5th inst., in reference to a reply of ours i to its editor on the 21st ult. We are led I to exclaim, 1 “ O hateful error, melancholy’s child ! ; Why dost thou show to the apt thoughts of men I The things that are not ?” If a statement of facts, well known as sucli hy even Dick Johnson, can be con j stated into blackgardism, then we plead guilty to the charge. We were attacked by the True Democrat and the manner ol our retort seems to have stirred up the bile or the ‘‘would-be Dictator” whe writes for that paper either in person oi by deputy. Speaking of us he says : “The truth Is that this same roan could have been had to abuse Hindman, as he now i abuses us, but we concluded long ago that it I did not mak" a bit of difference who or what I ho was for or against.’• Let any one examine the files of the ; True Democrat nnd they will find that j Dick lias often spoken in praise of our course politically and otherwise; but now a change has come over his mind. We happened once upon a time to handle him in our humble way for his opposition to agricultural societies, nnd even during the late session of lire legislature a number o( sturdy farmers, who were members of that body, remembered Dick's course, and re fused to listen to honeyed words, when he attempted to influence them. Those who know us best, know how to appreciate the assertion that we “could have been had to abuse Hindman,” or any other man. Our notions of right or wrong have never yet been influenced by “ filthy lucre,” or offers of public printing, or government pap, and vve presume no one knows that fact better than Dick Johnson. We have never sold our "birthright for a mess of pottage,” or inherited lands and negroes that fell to our lot from the scat tered fragments of a broken Bank. What vve possess, vve dare to say vve have ob tained honestly—by labor, toil and indus try. As to decency, that is an article that must have been blotted from Dick’s vocab ulary long since, in his intercourse with his brethren of the press—for it is univer sally conceded that to differ with him, is a crime in his estimation not to be forgiven. Finally he who claims for himself "all the decency, all the respectability and all the honor” had better look within for lie may find that he will compare only with the whitened sepulchre. RKS“ We clip the following articles from the " Old-Line Democrat" of the 29th ult. Mail facilities from Little Hock to Des Arc. arc “getting no better fast.” The " Old-Lint Democrat" of the above date was just seven hays three hours and twenty-two minutes in coming to hand from Little Hock, a distance of fifty miles. The route via. Batesville seems to he preferred, but vve don't know why ? The Bank Questions.—We lmvc not been prepared to give our readers such information in regard to the various ques tions connected with the old Banks ol Ar kansas. as their importance demanded. Nor have vve been prepared to fully re view the late articles of the True Democrat in relation thereto; hut we are happy to say that vve have succeeded in obtaining «ll 11 ii i nohussnrv /Inr-ii nrpnf.v thnt will »-> n n ) 11 n its to become thoroughly acquainted with their intricate details, and promise that in due season, we will make such state ments as will present the Bank affairs of the Slate in a plain and intelligahle man ner to the people. Of all the publicaflairs of the State, those connected with the Banks are most important and least understood. Cot.. II. L. BisCoe.—We are fully pre pared to vindicate this gentleman as well as the other four Trustees of the Real Estate Bank, against the charges and in sinuations of the True Democrat, and will do so—not because he happens to be the father-in-law of Col. Hindman, but be cause he is a citizen of Arkansas, and en titled to the protection of the press when ever unjustly assailed in his character of public officer, unless he thinks proper to vindicate himself though the columns of the papers published in his own city. Political Item.—Col. Carroll, the True Democrat's candidate for Congress, sprung the “slave trade" question on Col. Hindman in the discussion at Clarksville the other day. Col. Carroll says he is opposed to repealing the laws that now affix the stigma of piracy on the foreign trade in negro slaves. Will the Col. or the True Democrat, his buckcr, give some intelligent reason for a trade, which is all j right morally, socially and politically in the Southern States, becoming piracy, the highest grade of highway robbery, when extended beyond the borders of the United States ? The question is not, whether or not we shall adopt the policy of introducing more negroes among us, but, whether or not we will longer submit to have an act of Congress quietly slumber upon the statute book that unnecessarily and unconstitution ally degrades the South by stigmatizing a traffi.' in her recognized property as piracy. We are for brushing it out, and so wc un derstand Col. Hindman to be, although he is opposed to making this question a test of Democracy. An Inquiry.—Mr. Editor:—I have I been a close reader of the True Democrat for seveial years, aud of late have been jgiatiiiod at their bold denunciation of the per diem tukeu by the members of the Mouse during the recess. The Senate has been held up as an example for all future legislatures, for refusing to take tins money. It has leaked out lately that the grave and reverend scignors who composed that body appropriated three hundred dollars to pay the doorkeeper for the liquors and i cigars purchased by him for them during ' the session. It is said that this is an un questionable fact, and if so, should receive a scathing rebuke j if it be true it is as , |tonishiog that the True Democrat had not| denounced it. To lake; the peoples mone] to pay for liquors and cigars in anoutragi so flagrant as will not be justified. I hopi you will publish the proceedings on thii subject with the voles in both houses, ir ' order that we may know the men \vh< were so recreant to their duty as to nmk< ' the State pay for their indulgence in tha i worst of vices—drunkenness. A FARMER.

From the St. Louis Republican 6th inst. ARRIVAL OF THE OVERLAND MAIL Interesting from Jlrizona—Californio Election News—Broderick and Terri — Rejiorted Duel with Fatal Conse■ —quences—Painful Rumor from Lowet California, <S'c. The California Overland Mail arrived last night, with San Francisco dates tc the 12th. FROM ARIZONA. R. W. H. Jarvis, Esq., Treasurer of the Sonora Exploring and Mining Company Edward Woodman and Edward E. Cross late editor of the Arizonian, arrived it this city last evening,direct from Arizona. Capt. Henry Smith, Superintendent ol Division No. 3 of the Overland Maii line, nlso arrived in the same stage from El Paso, en route for New York. He has in charge two hundred pounds of silvei bullion from Arizona, consigned to the United States Mint, at Philadelphia.— There is over a ton of silver bullion at El Paso, awaiting shipment to the States. 1 he Arizona silver mines are doing well, although greatly annoyed by Indian depredations — the Apaches continually plundering the mines and ranches. Col. Reeve, the commanding officer at Fort Buchanan, being unable to chastise or even pursue the Indians. The news that Col. Fauntleroy had su perseded Col. Bonneville, as commander of the Department of New Mexico, caused great satisfaction throughout Arizona. Colonel Johnson, Inspector General United States Army, was on his way tc Fort Buchanan. It is understood that he will recommend the abandonment of at least four military posts in New Mexico, and that an adequate force of mounted men be sent to Western Arizona. Capt. Stone’s surveying party was still in camp near the Patigonia mine, anxious ly awaiting intelligence as to future move ments. Mr. Mowry had distributed the pres ents and farming tools to the Pimos and Maricopas and would soon leave for the States. Col. A. B. Gray was engaged in laying off the reservation for the same tribes. Col. Walker, Indian Agent, had left Tucson to distribute agricultural im plements to the Papagos. Some rich veins of gold quartz had been discovered on the Santa Cruz river about twenty-five miles from Fort Buch annn. Mr. Cross brings fine specimens of the silver and silver or?s of Arizona. Hi will remain at the Planter’ House severa days. FROM CALIFORNIA. Thj: Election.—There can be nc doubt of the election of the entire Demo cratic ticket, by decided majorities. The Broderick and Terry Duel— Conflicting Reports.—From what fol lows, it will be seen that a duel took place on the 12th. between Senator Broderick and Judge Terry, in which the latter was wounded—supposed fatally. The following dispatch, which was tele graphed to Gilroy, (Cal.) from San Fran cisco, reports that an interference of the police prevented a duel between these parties. San Francisco, Sept 12., 12m.—There has been intense excitement for the last three days, on account of a contemplated j_it. . . o . ..... r>.. . j • i j t_i .. IIUU UCIUCCU k.’LU'UUt AU l out I ll/ll Li 11 Vi U Terry, of the Supreme Court, the latter being the challenging perty. The fight was to take place at six o’clock this morn ing, in San Mateo county, and the parties proceeded to the field, but were arrested by the police, before doing any damage. This arrests the matter for the present, but it is believed that there are still one or two affairs of honor contemplated, involv ing the same parties or their friends, the cause being the violent personalities of the past political campaign. But as an offset to this report, we give the following contents of a way-bill re ceived through the Post Office last night by the mail from California: Santa Clara, (Cal.) Sept. 12, ’59.— Duel this morning between Hon. D. C. Broderick and Judge Terry of the Su preme Bench. Broderick shot Terry in the throat— wound supposed fatal. H. D. COBB, P. M. We may nientiun«tbat Judge Terry emigrated to California from Kentucky, of which State he was a native, having been born in Christian county. It will be recollected that his course in California drew down upon him the denunciations of the San Francisco Vigilance Committee ; and that he made a narrow escape with his life out of their hands. [ Siuce the above was in type we learn from the Fort Smith Times that Broder ick was killed in a duel by Terry—he died on the morning of the 16th of Sep tember.] From the San Francisco Times. Lower California—Painful Ru mor.—Judge Ames, of the San Diego Herald, has received letters from the South, he informs us, which contain a painful rumor. ' It was reported or ru mored ip San Diego that several Ameri cans had been seized and thrown into prison in Lower California, among whom was Rufus K. Porter, Esq., well known in this city. He was for several years connected with the post-office here. For some two years he has been a resident of San Rosario, Lower California, from which place he has written us several let ters during the past few months. The reason given for the seizure is that they had, in common with the adherents of the Liberal party, given offence to the Government faction. What gives more appearance of truth to this painful rumor is the fact that Mrs. Porter, who had some important legal matters to attend to in San Diego, and had been expected : there for some time, had not arrived, not t withstanding her presence was required i several days previous to the sailing of the steamer. Rumors always grow as they i travel, and so the report of the imprison • ment of Mr. Porter and others had changed to another, that they hod already been executed. We hope the first rumor may exceed the truth.although the savage character of the new Cotmnandante, Men doza, who supersedes General Castro, gives room for the most fatal anticipations. | Marysville, Sept. 10.—Death of Dr. Cowan.—The news of the death of | Dr. Wm. D. Cowan—of his body having been found in the mountains—is terrible I to his many friends and relatives. The i details of his unfortunate death we copy : from the Mariposa Star of Tuesday, 6th instant: Dr. Wm. Cowan left Mariposa on Fri day afternoon, August 26, for the South Fork of the Merced, in company with Charles Smithers, intending to spend a few days at Clark's ranch. About four miles from Clark’s he was met by a party who were returning from Walker s river. He was then on foot and said his horse ! had given out. Shortly after they found his horse on the trail, and a short distance from the place they found his coat, and some papers scattered about the trail. They also re marked that there was something strange in his appearance, but not being person ally acquainted with him, thought no more of it till they arrived in town on Monday evening, when their report caused some uneasiness, and Matthew Harris was dis patched in search of him on Wednesday. Accompanied by Mr. Clark, the search was carried on until Saturday jasi, wuen the body was discovered about thirty feet from the trail, a mile and a half from Clark's. From appearances it was sup posed that he had been dead several days. Dr. C. was an old resident of California, having come to this State in 1849. —*---— Withdrawn.—Col. Carroll who re cently took the field against Col. Hind man, we regret to learn, has withdrawn from the canvass on account of sickness in his family. Col. C. had won quite an enviable reputation as an orator during his short campaign, and was assisting very much in presenting to the Democ racy of Arkansas the issues upon which they are at present divided. We, there fore, very much regret the necessity that has called him from the field. All we ask is that the people mfty have the issues that now agitate the public mind fairly and squarely presented to their considera tion—We have unlimited faith in the wisdom and justice of their judgment. —[Old Line Democrat. ggg“The Washington Star denies that there is any truth in the report that the Massachusetts delegation to the Charles ton Convention are for Douglas. It says : The story that the delegation for the State at large to the Charleston Conven tion, recently chosen by the Massachusetts State convention, are for Douglas, is neith er more nor less than an effort to deceive the public for Mr. D.’s benefit. It is ut terly untrue. Messrs. Cushing and Davis are both men of too much sagacity, politi cal experience and well tried devotion to the principles of the Democratic party to run after any pro-abolition platform or candidates. R. M. T. Hunter and Jeffer son Davis might as well be calculated on to become Douglas leaders in the Charles ton Convention ns the two gentlemen we name above. When the meeting occurs at Charleston, it will be found that even from the States in which the contest with the Republican party is utterly hopeless, the delegates almost to a man will “ let” Mr. Douglas and his platform “ slide” as being belter suited for the support of Abo lition Opposition than of the Democracy. -- A Good One.—We accidentally heard of a good reply made by Gov. Willard to Judge Douglas, a few days ago, at Wash ington. The idea of being President has taken full possession of the Judge. Turn ing to Gov. Willard, while dining in com pany with other gentlemen, he asked the Governor about his prospects in Indiana. Willard promptly replied “that the De mocracy of Indiana had been so much in terested in the Sickles case that they had not yet made up their mind about the Pres idency.”— [Indianapolis Atlas. The Episcopalians and the Slave Trade.—At the late Episcopal Conven tion in New York, a Mr. Jay offered a petition “to lake steps to stay the growing evil of the African slave trade, which hath been reopened, and is now being prosecuted from the port of New York, within the limits and jurisdiction of this diocese,” with a resolution to submit the same to a commitee to report at the next Convention. The resolution was prompt ly, and almost unanimously voted down, thus showing that the Episcopal Church is determined to adhere to its well establish ed policy of non-interference with the slavery question in every shape. -- Exile of the Pope.—It is stated by a correspondent of the New York Courier des Hints Unis that Pius IX. has aban doned the project of interfering by force of arms in the affairs of the Legation, but. iti revenge, he has manifested afresh and more energetically than ever, the inten tion of abandoning Home and accepting the asylum offered to him in the Balearic Isles by Spain. France is exerting all her influence to change the Pope's pur pose; but without, it is said, the slightest hope of success. If the astuteness of Na poelon III. should be insufficient to get rid of this last and most decisive complication, we are. on the eve of the most solemn crisis in the history of Europe. -«- • - The St. Louis Evening News on Douglas and the Republican.—The St. Louis Evening News, of the 5th inst., contains an article in which it expresses the belief that the election in California drove the last nail in the political coffin of Douglas, and remarks that the evident betrayal of his interests by the .Missouri j Republican which has heretofore been a ! staunch supporter of Douglas, and its ex ultation over the triumph of the Adminis tration, is but what he deserves.—[ Mem phis Avalanche. 1 I 1VxARIIH3D : In Jacksonpoi t, Arkansas, on the 13th ult., at the residence of Mrs. Mary Hudson, by Rev.
