We had hardly limn in last week's issue to notice briefly the death of Hon. J s. W. Cartcr before our paper went to press, but being intimately acquain ted wilh him for several venrs, we feel flic loss of a friend still pressing sadly upon in, and which calls for something more than the brief an nouncement that "ho is gone." Mem ory still brings before our mind the bright review ff past and fond rela tions of friendship, and admiration for his various virtues find merits, such as fall to the lot of but few, Rcing a young man of brilliant talents and fine legal attainments, he was elected by the Legislature, in the year IR15, to the office of Attorney General for this Judicial District, and he discharged the duties incident thereto with much ability and success. After thcevpira tion of his term of office, he has been engaged in the practice of his profes sion, with eminent success, and won, by his talents and attainments, a rep utation second to none in the sphere of his professional association. Mr. Car 'i dh'h mind was characterized by that quickness of intuition which .apprehen ded rind digested facts almost as soon as they were presented to him; hence, lie. was seldom or never surprised by an ad versary in the management of a lawsuit. Hr had served two terms in the Senatorial branch of the Tennes see Legislature. During the last .ses-t-ion he was an active member, and perhaps taxed his energies too far, re Hultingin the derangement of his bow els, and causing him to confine himself to his room a good portion of his time Hiice his return from the Legislature. Having no natural fondness for poli ties, he had determined to abandon it .and return actively to the pursuit of his profession. A refinement of taste was mantivst in all the relations of life, but in none more so than the beauty of his oratory and polished style both in political and forensic debate, lie pos cscd a sensitive disposition, a quality :ominon to well cultivated minds, and Anew how to appreciate similar pecu liarities in others. He was, therefore, in his noeial relations always courte ous and respectful. Since his health has been impaired, his intimate friends discovered an apparent melancholy louding his spirits at t imes, but it was soon perceived to be the result of se rious reflection upon a future state a Mibjeet upon which his mind had been n:;;d for some lime with intense inter 'St. Mr. Cahit.r was always a (inn believer in the doctrine of Christianity and had determined to practice the precepts of inspiration in Lis retire ment from political life. His numer ous friends arc rejoiced to believe from satisfactory evidences that he had ex perienced that regeneration which sets his winged spirit free to pass into the paradise of its Creator. In the death of Mr. Cab mi, the com munity has lost a worthy citizen, the legal profession un ornarnmf, and his family a kind husband and indulgent parent. l:i lib domes! io relations he was alfrclionate and liberal, and his bereaved widow ha!,o sincere sym pathies of u'l who can appreciate a l',?m mi irn parable. She can have the i insurance that the l.enrt of ttinny Jiii-cds an mo imii .' v. i.h her. j It appears that Martin Van JJurcti has gone over to iho support of Rucu anan, endorsing the Cincinnati nomin ation, as the only hope of carrying out his cherished principles. And it is not a little strange that the democrats in the South arc boasting of the acquis! f ion of such men ns Van Huron, Hen- ton &c. to their parly, when they know that these men are and have been free- soilers for a longtime. These old po litical sinners now return to the dem ocratic party as the best chance of heating Fillmore. They know that From.11; has no chance to succeed. It is certainthat Tom Henton would sup port his son-in-law in preferences to Buchanan or Fillmore Vc'rn's paribuf,' but he does not wish to hazard his prin ciplesby his devotion to a family rela 1 ion, when he is Bitre that his relation must be defeated. He therefore sup ports his political principles by aiding Mr. Huchnnan. We all know Mr. Henton to he a frecsoiler, and also Fremont, his relative, is too. Tom Henton has a great partiality for Col. Fremont, "the Humboldt of the West," r-.s he has proudly called him. Now, under these circumstances, why is it that Col. Henton prefers to vote for Mr. Uuchanan? There is but one an swer to the question, and that gives Mr. Huchanan the freesoil strength that ho has. Mr. Huchanan is looked upon by these men as a friend to these. principles, and can we believe for a moment that they arc mistaken in their man it cannot be. The only differ ence between Huchanan and Fremont is that one is run (if a sectional can didate, and the other is not, and frce- soilcrs will support the one or the oth er as motives of policy dictates hence they are divided not upon principles, but upon policy. These men profess to have experi enced no change in their views upon the slavery question, but come in to the support of Mr. Huchanan as the true exponent of their principles. They must of course be ;:Uislied in their conclusions, for abolitionists arc not going to encourage a policy at war with their fanatical sentiments. This would be a base abandonment of all that thev have contended for. Fanat icism docs not thus suddenly give way and abdicate its throne in favor of rea son. It is "made of sterner stuff." All this is shown in the fact that their course is becoming more and more ag gressive every day, and it is a wide mistake to snpjosc that tjiesc old hacks arc improving in their political illibcrality. It is said somewhere in Scripture that "where the carrion is then! will be the. buzzards also." Then we may fairly suppose that the corruption of tho Cincinnati Conven tion was scented by these ravens from every part of the country, and the Cin cinnati platform is the entertainment to which tliey are invited. And what do we sec? James Huchanan at the head and Hreckcnridge at the foot of the table, feasting with the worst abo litionists of the country. Truly we are to be judged by the company we keep. One of two things is certain: either the frcesoilers or pro-slavery men arc deceived. Now, the way to to test witnesses' credit sometimes, is to see who has the best opportunity of knowing what he deposes. Apply this principle here, and let us see how it works. Mr. Huchanan lives at the North among these abolitionists. They hear his private conversation, while the South is far from him and only de pends upon hear-say evidence (espe cially since Mr. H. says he w ill answer no questions from the South.) WeJ must then give more credit to the opin-' ions of his Northern acquaintances, such as the Van Huron, &tc, and de termine the case by their evidence, and they say Mr. B. suits their views. Then the South must be dissatisfied. Why did not these men support the administration of Ccn. Fierce? The chief cause of complaint made by them was that Gen. 1. was a friend to slave ry. We ask, on what question did they long ago leave the democratic party? Everybody knows that it was owing to their anti-slavery views. Such beiug the truth, let the Southern Democracy tell us why they have re united with their old party, and open ly declare that the Cincinnati plat form, with Huchanan upon it. is good enough for them, and gives expression to their yentimcnt. It must be borne in iniml that there is n freefoil caudi dafe nnnini.'. too, ,u? they hope fo elect a man with freesoil sentiments, but run by a parly which, although di vided upon tho question, still adheres together for party purposes, and there fore they vote for Mr. Huchanan. It is well known that Martin Van Hurcn is fully up to all such political leger demain, and his course can easily be explained in this way and no other. He is just the man to encourage such duplicity, and it is perfectly natural tohim to take the position assumed by him. Let Southern Democrats remem ber that while they are voting for Mr. Huchanan, that they are co-opera! ing with the most prominent frcesoilers in the Union. Till ute of Itcspcct. At a special meeting of Cumberland Lodge, No. 158, Ancient York Masons, held in Masonic Hall in the town of Winchester, Tenn., on the 11th inst., to take into consideration the death of Brother Jos.

Resolved, That while we have but little of this world's consolat ion to of fer, we do most sincerely and affec tionately render 1o the family of our deceased brother our heartfelt sympa thy on this their sad bereavement. Resolved, That we wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days in to ken of our sorrow for our departed brother. Resolved, That a copy of these res olutions be furnished to the family of our deceased brother, and that the same be published in the Winchester Appeal and the Nashville papers.

Fellow-Citizens: If anything could add to the deep pleasure I experienced upon Again, returning to my native land and State.it would bo tho most cordial and enthusiastic welcome 1 have received all along the river, since wo left the city this morning. Can you then wonder that my heart is al most too full for utterance? Can it surprise you that I am pleased to again behold the banks of the noble Hud son, the pride of the State? (Ap plause.) 1 am indeed rejoiced to re turn to America, 'the land of the free,' and the asylum of the oppressed of all nations. I can assure you that I ap preciate the kindness of the citizens of Poughkeepsie, which is one of the most advantageous and prosperous places on the river. You can hardly sufficiently appreciate the advantages of your location. It is of double im portance both to you and the State, situated as it is in so central a position between New York and Albany. I assure yor, you cannot appreciate the beauty of your city and our free and rcdublican institutions more than I do. These institutions were the gifts of our forefathers, who fought and bled in the battles ol the Revolu tion for the boon, and it cannot be that the sons of those fathers, who, for upwards of seven t-yfive years, have held those gifts inviolate, can now prove false to the Union and our Con stitution. I say it cannot be possible that the sons of our sires, who shed their blood for our liberties, would think seriously for one moment of at tempting to form themselves into a sec tional organization that has for its object the dissolution of this free re public. It behooves us to hold well to the councils of the Father of our coun try; to distrust all persons who by their acts, cause dissension and bickering, or who advise any dividing line in our common country. Following the in structions of Washington, we cannot but distrust alll who would, by their acts, attempt to array the North against the South, or the South against the North, to create Seconal parties and thus be the means of inciting civil dissensions among us themselves. (Applause.) HIS SPKKCIl AT NRWlll'RGIt. Fellow-citizens of Newlmrgh: Ac cept, my thanks for this unexpected but heartv greeting. My friend has introduced nie as the standard-bearer of the American party and a friend of the Union. For the. former posi tion, 1 am indebted to my friends who have, without my solicitation, made me t heir standard-bearer in the coming campaign. Hut 1 confess to you that I am proud of the distinction. I con fess also, that I am a devoted and un alterable friend of the Union. 1 have no hostility to foreigners; I have wit nessed their deplorable, condition in the old country, and Cod forbid that I should add to their suffering by refu sing them an asylum in this. I would throw the gates wide open, and invite the oppressed of every land to partake of the blessings of our laws and coun try; I would only exclude from this emigration the pauper and the crim inal. I would give free toleration to every creed; but whilst 1 did this, I would, for their sake as well a s ours, declare that Americans should rule America. (Cheers.) They should have the benefit of equal laws but neither their education nor knowledge of our institutions qualify them to govern America. (Applause.) The failure of every attempt to establish a free Government in Europe is demonstra tive of this fact. Hut if we value the blessings which Providence ha3 so hounti fitly showered upon us, it be comes every American to stand by the Constitution of this country, and to re solve, that independent of all foreign influence Americans shall and will rule America. (Long and loud ap plause.) I feel, fellow citizens, that I need hardlv allude to the importance of maintaining this Union. I see the National flag floating from yonder heights, which marked the consecra cratcd spot where Washington had his headquarters. There was performed an act of moral heroism, before which the greatest deeds of Alexander pale, and with which the greatest achieve ments of Bonaparte are not to be com pared. (Immense cheering.) It was there, on that sacred spot, now shaded by the (lag of a free republic, that Washington refused a crown. (Great Applause.) It was there, that the officers of the army, after our independence had been achieved, made him the offer of a crown, which ho indignantly repelled. I am sure that I need not urge upon you who live in sight of that flag, the importance or dutvof following the Farewell Advice of the Father of His Country, to maintain the Union of the States, as the safeguard of our liber ties at home and the bulwarks of our defense against attacks from abroad. (Cheers.) Again I thank you most sincerely for this cordial welcome to my native soil. (Cheers.) Mr. F. then retired, the most deaf ening ccheers for Millard Fillmore, the nrxt President ofthe United States, filling the air. , A I.cuUy Mii Settling to Sink. A few weeks since taking nd van- tage of a political calm, tho Democra cy towed out nn old hulk which had been doing dock service twenty odd years, nnd made her their flag ship. She is called the James Buchanan and was originally built for tho Federal trade; but was bought for a trifle, by the present owners who thought that there might bo money in her. After full trial and sufficient proof that she was a dull sailor that steered like a raft besides being accounted by all sea-faring men an unlucky craft sho was employed about the harbor as a sort of store ship, in which capacity she attracted no particular attention. Hut as we have intimated, being in need of a flag-ship, her owners, the other day put tho carpenters, painters and riggers to work upon her, and in a short time, she came out as gaudy as you please, with any quantity of fresh paint above her water line, a set of masts that raked like a fore-and-aft Baltimore schooner's, and a figure head that folks at first thought was intended to represent a classical per sonage the god Janus but which turned out to be only the dual-phiz-zed coddess. Nebraska-Kansas. In spite of paint and new rig, hosvevcr, every old salt recognized the well knosvn lines of the old lubber, which had been the bye-word of a couple of generations of tars and he shook his head and declared that it was no use to clipper-rig a Chinese junk or try to paint out bad luck and rotten timbers! So they provisioned the old craft for the cruise, and the stores were not all on board before she commenced to make water, a little. This, though, was little noticed, and she stood out of tho harbor, before a gentle breeze, with all sails set and amid the hurras of thousands of spectators. For a very short space the sea was perfectly calm, and the old ship sailed smothly on un til she came in hail of a new, dashing; saucy, piratical craft, called the Frt monl. At this juncture, a large por tion of the crew a body of Germans who had been shipped for the voy age at high wages and with special privileges, suddenly betook them selves to the boats, swearing that the Buchanan was neither sound uorlucky, and immediately joined the pirate. Short handed, now, and the breeze stiffening, the sea beginning to roll heavily, the old ship began to pitch an;! roll s:ul!y, when the officers com-' mencfid talking about shifting some of the ballast to trim her better. Hut at this moment, it was discovered that an old leak had sprung anew, (from a fraud practised in the caulking by cer tain contractors known as squatter sovereigns.) Of course, all hands were ordered to duty at the pumps . and when last seen, the unlorlunalc vessel was supposed to have at least six leet water in the hold, while sig nals of distress were flying. She was evidently settling to sink. The Fre mont was standing off and on, within short hail, but, it was supposed, only with the intention of rescuing such of the passengers and crew sis might at tach themselves to the spars, barrels, etc., and attempt to make for her. The commander of the Huchanan wished to borrosv a few hands to man his pumps and rest his own crew, but Capt Grecly refused the favor. The officers andowners of the Buch anan will deserve their fate, for going to sea themselves, and taking with them a large number of innocent per sons, in an old, worm-eaten hulk con demned as unscaworthy more than twenty years ago!--Montgomery Mail. We insist on it, that, the Union and American answer our questions: First, did not ex-Governor A. V. Brown, "de clare in the Baltimore Democratic Convention, four years ago, that Buchanan's nomination would disband the Democratic party?" Second. Did he not say "that it 'was too much to ask the party to pack old Buck's federalism against such a man as Scott?" Come gentlemen call on Mr. Hrown, and see how these things stand. You may as well do it at once, as we shall harrass you, if you decline, as Cvc did on the Romish question. Nash. Ga elic. v. i?i.
