The mean length of East Tennessee is about one hundred sod eighty-five miles. Its mean width shout eighty miles. It contains about ten millions of acres. CIVIL DIVISION. It is divided iuto thirty-three countios Anderson, Benton, JJledioe, Ursdley, Blouut, Campbell, Carter, Cocko, Clai borne, Granger, Grecue, Ilauiblin, Hamil ton, Hancock, Hawkins, James, Jefferson, Johnson, Knox, Loudon, Marion, Meigs, MoMinn, Muuroc; Morgan, rollt, Koane, Rhea, Scott, Sequatchie Sevier, Uuiou aud Wasbiogton. These counties are subdivided into civil and cotuuiou school districts; each district baviug una or more Justices of tha Peace, according to population ; a constable, three common , school commis sioners snd one or more schools. VfiTIR COURSE!. There ia no pert of tha United States, or probably of the world, as well watered as East Tennessee. Withiu its area there are between, twenty and twenty-five rivers and navigable streams. Of these, the Tenneaiee and Holston rivers, as far up as Kuoxville, are navigable fur steamboats at all seasons ef the year. The Clinch, lliwassee, Little Tennessee, Ilolston above Knoxville, Freuch Broad and Nolaehueky rivers are navigable for steamboats from four to six mouths in the year, Watauga, Doe, North and South Fork of Holatoo, Chucky, Big and Little Pig eon, Tellico, Littlo Powell's, Big and Lit tle Emory, Ocoee and Sequatchie rivers and several creeks sre navigable for keel aud flat boats for from four to six months iu the year, Every county in East Tennessee has a navigable stream runuing through it. To supply these navigable streams we have innumerable creeks and rivulets, while our springs are so sbundant that the trav eler ou foot or horseback, journeying on any of our roads, can regale himself st pleasure with the purest and most limpid water that ever gushed from hill or mouu- tuin. Wo have water power in bast leo neasee cuftiuicnt to turn all the mnchirery in Great Britain snd the United States. And niuuli of it lies immediately on or contiguous to our lines of railroad already completed. The water course of East Tennessee cannot be exccllod for beauty. Tbty are not sluggish, turbid streams, but their clear, pellucid waters either bound over the rocks and shoals, or ripple over the pebbles, a bright and exhilcrating sight to the spectator. SCENERY AND CLIMATE. East Tennessee has a very diversified landscape of great grandeur and beauty. The scenery through the Cumberland mountains, on the banks of tbo Tennessee river, rivals in beauty that of the liud.ion. This scenery toriuinutcs with tho Lookout mountain, at Cliattnnongu one of the most interesting elevations on tlio West em Continent. The scenery up the Ocoee river through tho Smoky inouiitiiins is of surprising grandeur. That up the French Broad river is both grand and beautiful. No one has ever traveled through East Tennessee without unaffected admiration of the scenery. The climate is very salubrious. Situ ated betweeu thirty-five and tbirty-six and a half degrees North latitude, wc have not the enervating heat of the South or the rigorous oold of tho North. We have uo chills and fever, and but very little consumption or rheumatism. Indeed, by many physicians East Teunos seo is pronounced the best climate fur consumptives in the United States. For health, strength and louguvity our climate is not equalled by any ou tho American coutiucut, MINERAL SPRINGS. Nearly every county in East Tennessee bus sulphur, chalybeate, frecstcue and limestone springs in great ubundance; and besides these, some of them huvo springs composed of epsotn salts aud magnesia. Considerable improvements for tho enter tainment of invulids and othors have been made at somo of them. But as there are but fow health seekers in East Tennessee, these rely for support principally upou persons residing out of the State. Vast numbers of excellent sulphur aud chaly beate springs have no improvements. The principal improvements are at Mont vale, Blount county; Sulphur Springs, Rhea county; While Cliffn, Monroe coun ty; Lea's Springs, lower part of Grainger county ; Tate's Springs, upper part ol (1 ranger county; and Alum Springs, iu Hawkins county. RAILROADS. The East Tennessee and Virginia, and East Tennessee and Goorgia liuilroads, now under one administration, run through the center of the Valley of East, Teunes see from Northeast to Southwest, Begit.ning at Bristol, on the Virginia line, aud passing Knoxville; at Cleveland two branches diverse one going to Chat tanooga, Tennessee, aud the other to Dal ton, Georgia. The length of these roads, with their branches, is two hundred aud seventy miles. -At Bristol, connecting with tho line of the Virginia Railroads, we have access to the markets of Ricbmoud, Norfolk, Bal timore, Pbiladelpeia aud New York. By the connections at Dalton aud Chuttanoo ga, we ean send our produce to every por tion of the States of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina and Florida, inoluding the seaports of Savannah, Mo bile, Brunswick, Charleston and Pensnco la. It will thus be seen that the citiiens of East Tennessee have the choice of ci ther Northern or Southern markets. Besides the important railroad connec tions mentioned, tbo Knoxville and Ken tucky railroad is now in operation from Knoxville to the eoal mines of Cumber land mountains, a distance of about forty miles. This road will be completed to the Kentucky line, and give us a direct communication with Louisville, Cincin nati and all the Northwest. It now taps a country exceedingly rich in iron ore and coal of tho finest quality. The Kuoxvilli aud Charleston railroad ruus from Kuoxville to Mary ville, a dis tance of sixteen miles. This road is in tended to connect with the Bluo Bilge aud Macon railroads, and will give us a nearer and cheaper route tc the center of Georgia, South C-.roliua nnd all of the Southern cities. From Morristown, forty wilca abovo Knoxville, on the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad, forty milos of the Cin cinnati, Cumberland Gap and Charleston, have been completed in the direction of North Carolina, and of course will give oa commercial connection with all the towns and cities of that State. It will thus be seen that East Tennessee will soon have all the important connec tions she can possibly desire. Tbero is a branch railroad completed from the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad, eighteen miles, to Rogersville, the couuty seat of Hawkins comity. MINERALS. East Tennessee abouuda in minerals. We have iron, coal, copper, line, lead, marble aud brown sandstone. Large quantities of iron ore are fottntf in almost every county iu East Tennessee, and pig metal is manufactured iu all of thorn. Our iron ore is inexhaustible iu quantity and of the finest quality. Tho copper mines of Polk county have yielded largely for many years, and the owners have roalizcd very large fortunes from them. Rich deposits of tioo have been found in Jefferson, Knox, Claiborne, Campbell, and other counties of East Tennessee. A vein of red and white marble, inex haustible in quantity, runs from the North eastern to the .Southwestern portion of East Tennessee. This has been admitted to be tho finest marble iu the United States. The inside of the magnificent ad dition of the Capitol of tho United States, at Washington City, is finished with mar ble from East Tonuossee. So is the Cap itol of our own and those of several other States. At the time of tha commence ment of the building of tho Washington Monument, each of tbo Scales of the Uuion sent a block of marble to repre sent them in its erectiou. That from East Tennessee, wo believe, was unani mously pronounced tbo finest of them ull. Besides this, wo have a comparatively white marble that is a most excellent ma terial fur building. It is as sound aud puro as marble can be, without a siuglo seam. The custom house and postothee at Knoxville arc being built of this. Quarries of beautiful bruwu sandstone have been found iu several counties. When first taken from the quarry, it is soft and easily worked, but on exposure to the utiiH'Sphero becomes as hard us granite. Bituminous and canuel coul of a very superior quality is fouud in Cum berland mountain nnd Waldcu's ridge, from Cumberland Gap to Chattanooga, a distance of about two huudred miles. It is.inexlinustiblo in quantity and lies in close proximity to iron ore of the very finest quality. The veins of coal are from four to six feet thick aud are work ed with great facility. Lead has been found nt Leadvale, iu Jefferson county, and experiments aro now being uiado to usuortaiu. its- richness and quantity. 0.UAL1TY AND PRICE Or LAND. In a country as diversified as East Ten nessee in its physical geography must nec essarily be a great variety of soil. Our islands, river bottoms or lowlands and valleys aro a dark loam and nio exceed ingly tortile. Much of our uppcrliiiids, called a mulatto clay, arc also very fer tile and very easily worked. Even iu our mountains there ure coves or valleys that produce well. The soil of most of our lands is inex haustible, because tho basis is clay. We have sceu laud so much exhausted as scarcely to produce anything, improved by clover auu a little manure until it was made as rich as when it was first cultiva ted. And this is tho regenerative qual ity of nearly all of our luuds iu East Tea uussee. All our lands are very favorable to the growth of wheat, rye, Indian corn, oats, grapes, grass, barley, sweet ami Irish po tatoes, turnips, apples, peaches, pears, plums and all kiuds of fruits. Our great number of creeks and rivulets that pene trate every part of our country give us u considerable scope of country for meadows; and hay is made in large quantities aud ex ported lo tbo South. The prioe of land in East Tennessee is varied uccordiug to quality and locatiou. Our islands lute from fifty to a hun dred dollars an acre ; improved uplands from tcu to thirty dollurs' Other lands from one dollar to ten. There is a great deal of land in almost every county iu East Tennessee that is fa vorable to the growth of rye and the grape, that can be bought for one dollar or less per acre. Much of this land is not fur from our railroads already completed and the lines of others ulready begun. The average taxable value of the laud of East Tennessee, according to the reports niado by our Comptroller to tho Legislature, is five dollars. HLKNUFACTURE3. Notwithstanding our great resources and facilities for manufacturing, wo have but very few establishments for that pur pose. A mild climate mid a fertile soil has furnished our citizens with an abun dance of provisions for themselves and to export to other countries to exchange for whatever they may have need of. Ou account of the abundance of coal ond iron ore, we have had for years man ufactories of pig nietal and iron iu almost every county iu East Tennesseo. Thcso were, however, on a small scale. Latterly, some twoor three large mills havo been put in operation for ruanufuc turing and rolling iron and making nails. But these aro by no means sufficient to supply even for homo consumption. Our r6sourcos and facilities to sustain manufactories of every kind, consist in immense water power, an abuudanoe of coal lumber of almost every variety aud inexhaustible quantities -of the richest iron ore and zinc, lying in immediate proximity to our railroads. Coal can bo laid down at Chattanooga and Knoxville for manufacturing purposes, at two dol lars ond fifty cents per ton, and for a lit tle more all along tho line of railioad from Bristol to Chattanooga, two hundred and fifty miles. We groutly need additional manufacto ries of iron und cotton, also woolen facto ries und establishment? for the manufac ture of agricultural implements, wagons, carriages and bugges. Our agricultural implements, buggios, ourriiigos and even many of our wagons are brought from the North or Northwest, a distunoe of between seven huudred und fifty aud a thousand miles. lADO A..N SOCItTt. Common laborer get a dollar tad a dollar and a qaarttr a day. Mechanics get from two dollars to four dvilsrs a day, according to their skill. Cast T.iine-we not beisg a cotton tohateo raisin); const ry, we have so few colored laborers that theft h eonpethivs) ketweea ths white tad colored races. Wt bavt quite a namber of German) snd Irish in our cities and towns, and ws have German colonies in the country. There iino more peacefsl snd orderly society than exists in East Tennessee. Life, liberty and properly sr. sedulously protected in our administration- of jus tice, aud there arc fewer cases for the in terposition ef law iu East Tennessee than any equal portion of the United States. TOWnS A.1D VILLAUES. We have only space to notice few of these. The towns and villages along the line of the railroad from Bristol to Chat taueegs, exhibit marked evidences of in crease of population, progress and pros perity. Chattanooga and Knoxville now eaeb have a population of between tea and fif teen thousand inhabitants. With the country they have to sustain them, and their great facilities and resource for manufacturing, we have uo doubt they will steadily and rapidly progress until in a few years they will attain a population of between thirty and forty thousand inhabi tants. Bristol may probably arrive at like proportions. Morristown and Cleveland are rising and flourishing towns and ex hibiting considerable enterprise. Joncsboro,Grecneville,RusselvilIe, New Market, Loudon, Sweetwater, Athens and Charleston arc all situated in fine ag ricultural counties and show considerable improvement. Their progress hereafter will be much more rapid than it ha beeu heretofore. GEOGRAPHICAL rOSITIOR Of TENNESSEE. The geographical position of Tennes see is a very commanding one. Bounded on the South by the Stales of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia aud a part of North Carolina ; West, by the Mississippi river and tho coterminous States of Arkansas and Missouri ; aud North, by Kentucky her powerful political and social position betweeu the cotton States aud the grain growing aud meat producing States may bo readily perceived. Tennessee has given to the United States three Presidents : Andrew Jack son, James K. Polk, and Andrew John sou. Their administrations have been marked with more important events than any that have occurred in tl.e United States since the colonics rebelled against Great Britain. Hasty Words. The evil that is iu our world, that rush eB down our street, devastating tiomo, ruining happiness, and laying waste tha pleasant places, has ninny fountains. Sin does its deadly work iu many ways, aud sorrow comes from a variety of . sources. Hasty words havo much to answer fur among the rest. Ws are apt to think that a word or two does not mutter; that we need not trouble ourselves to be over particular about what we say. But thi is only oue of our many mistakes. Wards live. There is to much vitality in them they take rout even upon very unlikely soil. Hasty words are always sure to have little sense and lers kinduess in them. They at 3 not the offspring of meek and quiet spirits, but of hot, passionate tem pers. "All men are liars!" Who but s man in a passion would have said that ? The assertion is so sweeping and unjust, that if David had not prefaced it by his confession, "I said in my haste," we should not have noticed it. Perhaps the reason why such words are spoken is, that the speaker feels himself aggrieved. We often do this in this world of ours; we cannot have all we wish from our friends, and so grow fretful and angry. We are unrea sonable enough to suppose that all things should be ours, and when we find only a few things coming to our share, (hen we become discontented and peevialt and speak foolish, hasty word. Crime in Dreams. Two esteemed friends assured mo that their consciences are occasionally awake in sleep; on tho other hand s great many more tell ine that their experience entire ly corroborate my own observations.
