John Ulilchel The Irials Poltroon.
For the first lime, I believe, eiDce I announced
myself as Ed-tor of thU piper, I address raj self to
its readers this week, in the first person, singular.
My text is the name that bends this article, and my
purpose i9 to make the article so clearly aDd da
signedly personal, that there can be no mistaking
. its application. I hare essayed the unpleasant
task of unmasking a white-livered wretch, and if
my readers will follow me to the end, I will exhibit
him, in the light of truth, as knave, coward, scoun
On Tuesday roornfn?, while returning from the
Postoffice witu my mail, I bad stopped at the cor
ner of Gay and Cumberland etreeto, (the Lamar
House corner) and entered into conversation with
a small company of friends who were ihere. While
Standing there, with my newspaper mail in 'my arm,
and an open paper in my hand John Mitehel (the
toi-disant "Irish Patriot," but whom I choose to
call, the ' Irish Poltroon ") wiihout having attract
ed the notice either of myself, or any member of
the company, approached and addressed himself to
rae. I turned immediately toward him, and not
anticipating an attack from him, and recognizing
what I conceived to be his wonted smile, when sa
luting me, my first impulse was to extend to him
the usual courteous salution. lie remarked to me
immediately that during his absence a scurrilous ar
ticle bad appeared in the Register in relation to
himself, Ilia manner impressed me, as it did those
standing with me, that he had called upon me like
a gentleman to call my attention to some injustice
that had been done him, and, still Btanding with
my bundle of papers in my hands, I replied to him
very courteously that I was not aware that any
scurrilous article had appeared in my paper con
cerning him. lie pimply remarked that he design
ed answering 'hat article, and instantly proceeded
to make an assault upon me with his cane, which,
had it proceeded from one of the intimate friends
with whom I had been conversing, would not have
taken me by more complete surprise. Instinctive
ly, I threw up my left arm, dropping my papers,
and received bis blow upon the fleshy pait of the
fore-arm. Ilia slick having easily broken, without
inflicting any perceptible injury upon me, the con
test was continued as a "fist and ekull fight" in
which no one, I presume, who saw it, will dispute
that I would have thrashed him most soundly, but
for the intervention of the police; for I repelled his
assault so piomptly and in such a way, that be
found it impossible to use h ar ns with which he
was evidently provided. About the time we were
separated, I believe, Mitehel made a thrust at my
face with the broken end of his stick which pene
trated the flesh, near the inner corner of my left
eye, inflicting an inconsiderable wound, constitu
ting the amount of injury sustained. For the truth
of this statement of facts, I refer to Messrs. Clip's.
S. Williams, Stiphkn L. Cobbt and J no. F. Gil
lis, who were standing with me at the time Miteh
el approached, and who need no corroborative tea
timouy. in this community, to establish their credi
bility. This encounter took place at about II o'clock.
I was totally unarmed, having not so much as a
pen-knife in my pocket, and this the dastard, from
my appearance, had every reason to know, for had
I had with me even the walking-cane which I usu
ally carry, he would not dared to attempt an assault
upon me. I have several times written severely of
Mitehel his writings and lectures. II is lecture in
this place last winter, I criticised with unusual se
verity, and, then, when I had reason to look for a
hostile approach from him, be was harmless as a
lamb, met me with friendly salutations and manifes
ted no disposition, whatever, to take offense at my
comments. It was by approaching me in the same
manner, on Tuesday, that he blinded mt to his
purposes, and attempted, though unsuccessfully, to
take such advantage of me, as would render mean
cany victim to his assassin-like designs; for the
character of the article, to which he took, excep
tions, had, for the time, escaped my mind.
After we had been separated by the police offi
cers, I proceeded at once to arm myself, and again
made my appearance on Gay street. About half
past twelve o'clock, while I was standing a few
steps down Cumberland street, Mitehel walked
down Gay street, in company with a friend. At
King's corner, just in front of the Lamar House, I
accosted him, advanced to within six or eight pa
ces of him, and then and there, in the presence,
and in 'the hearing of a hundred or more citizens
and strangers, addressed and denounced him, sub
stantially, an follows :
"John Mitehel, you made a most cowardly,
though impotent, assault upon mc, this morning.
You approached me with the smile of friendship
upon your lips, but with the purpose of a murder
er in your heart. You approached me armed, pre
suming correctly upon my being unarmed. Your
purposes failed you, and I have stopped you to in.

Such, and much more, were the denunciations I
pronounced, while he stood at the distance of six
or eight paces, with his hand upon the cock of a
partially revealed pistol. Yet he inglorious

forth spontaneously from the crowd, upon bis das

In all the terms of denunciation I could device
having basely submitted to all and skulked away
amid the jeers and hisses and shouts of the bystand
ers, I hesitate not to repeat my denunciation and
brand him as a miserable scoundrel and uhite-liver-ed
covard; add in doing so, I fer only that he may
shoot me through a window at night, or stab me,
covertly, in the dark.
In shaping my course, I have been guided by my
own sense of honor and the counsels of friends, and
have but to regret, first, that I was unarmed at the
outset, and secondly, that I was not permitted to
conclude the first engagement, which I sliould inoft
certainly have done to my entire satisfaction. I
can but bu gratified at the general approval with
which my position and course have received iu this
community, and at the equally general feeling of
mingled indignation aud contempt, which the con
duct of the Irixh dastard has excited. To the judg
ment of an unprejudiced public, I cheerfully submit
the case. JOUN M. FLEMING,

We have refrained as much as possible from ap
pearing iu priut couceruiug the loss of the Central
America, since the whole subject is to undergo a
judicial investigation ; but we cannot refrain from
stating truth, as it appears to us, in regard to the
statement of Capt. Stone, of the schooner EldoraJo.
Capt Stone was down under the loo of the steam
er, distant about fifty yard, just as it was growing
ing dark. Capt. lierndou hailed him from the quarter-deck,
told him that we were in a siuking condi
tion, (which he could eacily see from the ship bc
Ing so low in the water, the wheel-guards being
considerably under,) and that he wauted him to
lay by os. Capt. Stone answered that ho would
lay by us till morning, and requested Capt. II ens
don to set his lights. The ecboouer was under
balance-reef mainsail, storm foresail, aud reefed j b.
After hailing us he stood along under our lee, and
ranged out ahead of us, apparently runuing off,
not close-hauled. At the lime of the ship's sinkiu
he was still on the starboard (the same) tick, dis

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1857.
Xlie Lecture of Mr. Prentice. .
Geo. D. Prentice, Esq- reached this city
on Saturday morning. Owing to some
oversight or neglect on the part of those,
with whom he had entrusted the arrange
ment of the time and place for the delivery
of his "Lecture on t)u Present Aspect of
American Politics," which was the prime ob
ject of his visit these facts were not
generally known to onr citizens. Such no
tice, however, as conld be given during the
evening of that day, brought together a
fine audience at Odd Fellows' Hall.
For a quarter of a century Mr. Prentice
has held a prominent place before the
country as a partizan politician, it may be
said a fierce and bitter one. In this re
spect the character of his mind and writings
are well known throughout the Union.
On, this occasion, however, he laid aside
his partizan character, and, rising above
all were party names and aims, viewed the
aspects of American politics in the light of
an. elevated philosophy. The most sensi
tive or the most prejudiced of his political
opponents, could have discovered nothing
which could have been construed into the
remotest party bias; and from this lecture
it may be known that he is a statesman as
well as a partizan. Ills analysis of the
times, and his exposition of the nature of
man, his relations to social institutions and
their application to the existing order of
things in our own country, exhibited a
power and comprehensiveness of thought,
an extent and accuracy of investigation
that marked not only the statesman, but
the learned and accomplished political
philosopher. Ilis tributes to the illustrious
dead, were no less beautiful and touching,
than his excoriations of the living re
gardless of parties were just and severe
While he traced the evils that now afflict
the country with the keen and searching eye
of a passionless philosopher, he deplored
the causes with the heart of the passionate
patriot, and rebuked the immediate authors
with all the fierce vehemence of his ardent
nature. The Lecture may have contained
sentiments or propositions, that we might
consider debatable ; but as a whole it was
eminently just, able and instructive.
As a literary production, we consider it
one of the most finished and elegant we
have ever listened to. Its rhetoric and
grammar were faultless. Its illustrations
and imagery were chaste and classical. Its
periods were richly decorated and splendid
ly rounded with the finest forms of speech;
yet unencumbered, clear and powerful. No
sentence was broken by the weight of its
ornament; no sentiment weakened by the
splender of its utterance, yet it was highly
ornamented and splendid throughout.
To the reputation of a poet, scholar, and
partizan controversialist, which Mr. Pren
tice has already achieved, he now adds
that of the philosophic politician. He is
lacking in many of the qualities of a popu
lar orator, and the careless auditor will lose
something of the beauty and power of the
lecture in the delivery; but the attentive
listener will not fail to be deeply impressed
with both. He goes from here to his home
in Louisville, filling a number of appoint
ments on the way; and those who may
have the opportunity to sit down to such
an intellectual feast will assuredly not fail
to embrace it.

Pacific Ilavilroad iu IHcxice
The Pre-idency of Comonfort is marked by a t.
gor and enterprise which promises to open a new
era for Mexico. He has a good fund of true Ameri
can energy, and a patriotic regard for the welfare of
the nation, which shows itself on every occasion
that offers for elevating and strengthening Mexican
nationality. Bis course is in strong contrast with
that of Lis predecessors, and as he is manifestly
becoming very popular at home, we have reason to
expect from bis continuance iu power, the begin
niug of a greater stability of government, and the
protBotiou of a fuller development of the immense
resources of tuat country.
As an evidence of the new life infused into bu
siaess there, wenotice a recent movement for the
construction of a Railroad between the two princi
pal Mexican ports on the Atlantic and the Pacific,
Vera Cruz and Acapulco. A liberal grant for this
purpose has been obtained from the President, by
an individual named Don Antonio Esoandom- As
in the cae of the grant of the Tehuantepec road,
of which we have before given an account, the
terms are such as to show the disposition of the
government to encourage, by all the means in its
power, all important public works within its juris
diction. Whether iu either case the practical re
Eults will meet the expectations of the projectors of
those works, we hive oo sufficient means of judg
ing. Both have a plausible appearance.
E cando.n's grant includes the right to construct
branch roads within a radius of twenty leagues, and
a'83 to select some other po- th n Acap ilco, within
certain limits, for its Pacific terminus, if found ex
pedient. Such of the land required for the road,
and for buildings for its accommodation, as belong
to the government, are given to the grantee with
out compensation; all materials of construction, as
well as cattle, &c, employed on the work are to be
free from all tax or impost of any kind, for thirty
years; aud the road is to be free from all taxation
fer fifty years. All employees and laborers on the
road are to be exempt from civil or military service.
Minep, coal or salt be Js, mineral waters, fossils, and
other subterranean materials discovered in con
structing the road or its branches, are to be the
propei ty of the grantee. In addition to this,
President Comonfort pledges government aid, by
creating a consolidated fund, with an annual inter
est of five per cent; the capital to be redeemed in
fifty years by an annual redemption of two per
cent; the bonds of this fund to be delivered to the
owner of the grant. The road already built from
Vera Cruz to San.Juan is to be delivered to Escan
kox by the governmen, for which he is to pay. The
grantee is bound under heavy penalties to com
mence the work at an early day.
The whole distance of this route by an air line is
not far from four hundred miles. Much of the
country through which it passes, however, is rough
and the road cannot be constructed short of a much
greater distance. It will be very expensive part
of the way, but the nature of the grant is such as
to promise anj ample remuneration, if the difficul
ties can be surmounted. As a species of compro
mise between the Panama route and our projected
Pucific Railway, it promises important advantages,
it it can only be seasonably built. It is chiefly im
portant, however, as showing the awakening of
Mexican enterprise, and as tending to develop the
resources of that country. Cin. (Jaz.
Thb Mount Vebnon Association, to purchase
Mount Vernon, is receiving io the West vigorous
pupport. We have before us a brilliant appeal to
the sons and daughters of Tennessee, from the pen
of a lady, Mrs. Fogg, who was a Mifs Rutledge, of
S C, granddaughter of Rutledge, one of the sign
ers of the Declaration of Independence. This lady
hasnot only undertaken to conduct the Mount Ver
non affairs of Tennesee entirely, but is extending
the cause into surrounding States by her zeal and
influence. She devotes all of her time to the work,
and intei ds to do so in future until Mount Vernou
is secured. N. Y. Express.
A Significant Movement. We mentioned a
few days ago that the Cincinnati Commercial charg
ed the Democracy in that city with having become
Americanized. We find that a large Dumber who
have heretofore acted with the Democratic party in
Hamilton county, Ohio, have abandoned it and uni
ted with the Americans upon a full ticket for coun
ty and city officers. Several of the members of the
Democratic Executive Committee paiticipated ac
tively in this movement. This split in the Demo
cratic party is attributed to disgust at the Irich Cath
olic influence by which the Democratic Convention
ws controlled. The union of Americans and con
servative Democrats was effected at a meeting of
the American party held in Cincinnati on Saturday,
at which a paper, numerously signed ry Democrats,
was presented, proposing a union between the Amer
icans and the disaffected Democrats. The signers
guaranteed a vote of thirty-five hundred on the part
of the Democracy who were dissatisfied with the
xctiou of the party in its late convention. The pro
position was accepted, aud the candidates previous
ly nominated by the American party having with
drawn, a uuion ticket was presented. Zoui Jour.
Railroad Suspension. We understand that, on
yesterJay, by a vote of the Directory, it was resol
ved to make a total suspension of tbe work of all
kinds on the Knoxville and Kentucky Railroad.
We have only time to announce the fact without
comment. We deeply regret that such a step has
been deemed necessary. We think the suspension
can only be temporary. The Company have an
ample supply of county bonds, but so stringent has
been the money market, that it was found impossi
ble to negotiate them, except at most ruinous rates.
South Carolina Flkxible Sand Stons. The
Cincinnati Gazette states that there is a piece of
flexible sand-stone in the cabinet of Farmer's Col
lege, College Hill, which was carried from South
Carolina by General Carey. It does not state where
he obtained it, but, as in his late tour hero he visi
ted all parts of the State, there was abundant op
portunity for him to obtain in our sand-toue re
gion the specimen iu question. The attention of
the Gazette seems to have been directed to this
specimen by the following extract and description
from an English paper, vis:
"A local correspondent of an English paper
writes: 'There is in possession oi air. jenicoe, a
'There is in possession of Mr. Jellicoe, a
gentleman of Southampton, a piece of flexible sand-
stone Irom Delhi, the seat oi tne great inuian re-

Schroeder, says tbe Louisville Courier, the wine
and liquor dealer, men tiou of whose probable good
fortune we made yesterday, is one of the heirs to
a fortune of fifty-two millions of guilders ia the city
of Amsterdam. This sum has been accumulating
ever siuce 17S0, at compound interest, and lias, of
course, nearly twice doubled its. If. Tbe heirs at

Mr. Donelson was then escorted to the chair, and
delivered the following Inaugural:
Gentlem'-n of the House of Representatives :
Permit me to return my heartfelt thauks for the
honor you have conferred in selecting me as your
presiding officer. You know full well my want of
experience in the busiuees of legislation; you also
know that my pursuits io life have not been such
as to pi ice me in the best circles for acquiring a
knowledge in pirliamentary rule, and rules govern
ing deliberative booi. s. You will therefore aid me
in my inexperience, ami I shall expect from you
your wisdom in accomplishing that object.
Gentlemen of the House of Representatives;
we meet uuder circumstances of unexampled pros
perity of the nation and of our own State. We are
at peac-i with the world. No sickness or epidem
ic of local or general character has oppressed the
laud. The appreciation of the value of real and
personal estate has been wholly unprecedented.
It is true that, of late, tbe pressure in the mone
tary system at the North, has caused some anxiety
as to the currency of the State; hut our banks
have generally stood firm, and I believe have ac
complished faithfully their duty; and I trust the
violeuco of the pressure has passed away.
It is under circumstances like the present, that
we meet together, so favorable for legislation when
the public mind is quiet, and when the great mass
Of the people are in the enjoyment of prosperity,
we can enter fully upon the investigation of alleged
evils, and inquire and investigate into such meas
ures of reform as may be proposed. We have no
outside issues to harass us in our deliberations, nor
to prejudice our judgments. I, therefore, most
earnestly call upon you for your undivided atten
tion to the improvement of our legal system; to tbe
careful management of the finances of the State;
to the care and protection of our charitable institu
tions; and to the general protection and economy
of all the great interests of the State.
It is unquestioti.il y true, that it is desirable we
should have a short session of tbe Legislature, and
return as speedily to our homes as the nature of
the public interest will permit; but we ought to
reinem'jer, that it is our duty to cive all necessary
time, patience and forbe;irjuce to those questions
which shall be brought up tor investigatioi a-without
which iio permmanent good can be t fleeted. I
shall expect, therefore, that we will, though in con
flict with our individual wishes, be detaiued bere,
until these desirable objects be occompllshed even
though it might not comport with certain views of
I, g ntlemen, shall endeavor to give you all the
aid in your deliberations which I may have the abi
lity to do; and I make no question but that you
will, in return, give me all the assistance in your
iruning mat our joint uoors may oe oiesseu io
the fuitherance of the best interests of the Stale,
l accept mo appointment you nave coniereu, anu
enter upon the discharge of my duties.
The election ot principal clerk being next in or
der, Mr. Rowles, ol Bradley, nominated Rob rt W.
Haywood, of Davidson. Mr. Kendrick, of Wayne,
nomiuiited Wm. Ily. Smith, of Davidson. The roll

Fanny Fern's New Dook.
ET FASNT 7ERN.
In one volume. Blue and Gold.
From Vis Sne Yort Courier,
Fanny's leaves are always fre-h. lively and piquant, and
they hsve the aroma of nature abont them. There are a
gcod many professed cri i-is who say that Fannv is rode
vnh'sr and flippant. But this class of critic, think that
anything b coarse and vulgar, and fiippsnt, that is not
common-place and rnll, and stupid. 5i-akespesre. and
Bvrcn, and Fterne, and Addison, and Fish ing, are dread
fully coarse, and tiey are dreadful! popular. A French
critic hss compared Fhakspeare to a dung hill, but what
of it? Critics will have their sav, nd they have a right to
say what they think; and the pahllc has a right to think
too; and it always exerci.es tHs riaht withoot any more
regard to the opinion of cri ics than the weather shows
for the vane on a church steeple. The public have given
unquestionable evidercesof likipg Fanny Fern's sketches,
and the publi; never a-.'rroves of what is coarse and vul
gar. Fanny's style has the vfvarl-y, terseness, and epi
grammatical liveliness of the Fren h school, while ber
fancy is so full of geniil tenderness, and as teeming with
simple dramatic scenes and feeling as the most hearty and
iiliomstij of EnglUh writ-rs There are some who com
plain that she is a n-ere parsgrapt i t, and so she is. and
so were Solomon, and Frank in, and Tope, and Montaigne,
and La Rochefoucauld and Bncon. Hat it would be an
odd objection to tnai-e to any auibor that he compressed
into a paragraph the wit which another in vain attempted
to diffuse through an essay or a volume. Fanny Fern
climbed into a reputatien through the grea'e?t difficulties.
She wrote fer obscure journals, and compelled the world
to recogrji her genius in pi;e cf the unfortunate chan
cels through which stie addressed it
The present volume is a very pretty little one with gilt
edgs, and aqusi'.t binding wl ich l as an antiquated look,
making a very agreeable contract to the common blue and
go;d now the rae am ng book manufacturer.
From the Xir Yurler.
Fanny Fern may appear a thousand Vmes with Fern
Leaves, Palm Leaves, snd any leaves but final leaves tak
ing, snd she will te as ag-eeable as ever Although she
calls her last book, iueJ ia superb style bv Messrs. Ma
son, "Fresh Leavts," whatever she writes has on iu face
the common lock and vigor of an intel eel in its priice.
The eye is fixed as keen, the voice just as decisive as ever.
Let her faults be what they may, whenever Ftnny Fern
writes on a subject it is concluded ou feel the cortf rt
there is in being in the hands of a n aster, or mistress
rather. This is one of her richest put.l c:i ms. bum full
of lire, varied and abundant. Tbe cail for the book will,
no doubt, be lond and long.
