Our excellent schools will commence their respective sessions in a few weeks, an.! we confidently look for an increase or pupils. Tho character of the last war rants'it, ami is a strong appeal to parents lo give their children, of both fcxcs, an opportunity ofdeveloping those qualities of mind which, if properly cultivated, will enable them to rise to high position and usefulness. Our schools are conduc ted upon excellent principles by able teachers, and a more desirable und pleas ant place than Winchester could not be found for attending school. Tho locution is hinh and healthy, the society is good, and nothing is lacking to make it a place eminently fitted for acquiring an educa tion equal to the best institutions, of like grade, in any portion of the houtu. ov. Jonc of TeniK'ssec. Tills man borrowing the language of the lamented and unrivalled Webster asked in tho Senate on Saturday last, "WThcrc he should go?"' and answered his own question by declaring his purpose to fall into lino with the Van J'.urcns, Uoc ranes, and Rontons; or, in other words, to support "Old Squatter Sovereign." Having made this declaration, it seems to us there is one place to which he should not co, and that place is Tennessee! If lift 1:1 1 cm !,1 fa iherf?. however reirnrdless of ibis suggestion, and of the well known Americanism of tho Tennesseenns, it may be at least conjectured that the people of that State will consingn him to n politi cal retiracy for which he is so admirably qualified. We are most happy to observe that Senator Dell took the occasion of. Senator Jones' announcing his prospective dec.lin ation of further public service, to state emphatically his intention, as at present advised, to sustain Mr. Fillmore not that anv doubt has existed that Senator Lei wai,1,I ilm! ilirow his influence, into tho conservative, onti- filibustering, nnli 'snuattcr sovereignty" scale, but that it was a fit and proper occasion for a pub lie declaration on his part, to prevent th possiblo beleifin the minds of those who know the two Senators, that the ilelecuon of Governor Jones ivould work tho least change in the rotes of Tennessee. The prompt declaration on the spot, by Sentor Bell, that he bhould pursue the di rectly opposite course to that indicated by Governor Jones, sinks tho announcement of the latter into perfect insignificance.- The opinions and influence tho politi cal weight of statesmen of tho high emi nence of Senator Dull, presented to the peoplo ofTennessec, or of any other State in opposition to tho determination ol cx Jones, will produco precisely the same comparative effect, ns the appearance of tho morning Bun in banishing n twinkling star from human sight! If we could have any consideration for on "old-lino lug who joins the uncicnl, immovable, and vindictive enemy of his faith, and goes over body and soul, to Foreignism am Forneyisrn, we would bo inclined to pity the ex-Governor but we huve no pity for such n politician. American Organ. Y. N. Bilbo, Esq., of the Nashville Gazette, has presented W. G. Brownlow, En.., of the Knoxvillo Whig, with o fine ' Sliarpe's Rifle ns a small token of admi ration for the patrioiie services rendered his country "in supporting tlioso great fundamental principles of American Con stitutional liberty, in which nlono con sists the glory anJ prosperity of our He public. Hon. Thomas W. Thomas, a democrat ic electoral candidate in Georgia deHincs because he had said that if Buchanan ta Can Mr. Fillmore bo Elected! Wo hear this question asked hourly, and by those who would gladly soo him elected. Tho Savannah Kcpuulican mokes the following sensible remarks up on this interrogation: "This question has been asked by some of Mr. Fillmore's doubting friends, who acknowledge his superior claims, "and follow ufar off," but would vote for him cheerfully if they believed there was any chanro of his election. We say there is. Rut that is not tho question. Is Mr. Fillmore a truo man? Does the country need his services in the perils tbut sur round her? If these questions be unswer ed in tho affirmative, answer all others by putting your shoulder to tho wheel, and thus aiding by your personal exer tion in the attainment of a consumation you so anxiously desire. The true ques tion is, what arc you doing, not what oth r.r neonlo eoms io do." Tit s. Monitor, j - i - - o o At a recent American meeting in Phil adelphia, Mr. J. J. Fuller, a merchant of New Orleans, the following statement: When 1 left New Orleans, 1 bad my passago engaged in the steamer Persia, which loft yesterday for Liverpool, but It.. when I beard, and was convince l uy ac tual observation, that tho present politi- contest is one of the utmost impor tance, probably the most important in the brief history of the United States, I said to myself, because 1 Jove my coun try from East to West, and from .North to South, this is no tirno for any one with atriotic feelings swelling his breast, to eavo his post of duly.

The following very accurato and inter esting article on the nubjoct ofwheot pro duction is taken from tho Cincinnati Price Current. Wo commend it to tho careful perusal of every ono: "Tho Harvest being now pretty well over, arid tho Wheat crop of the country mostly secured in good order, and being in possession of very full and satisfactory information from all parts of the country we are cuablod to give a pretty accurato estimate of tho extent of tlio crop of tho present 'year. It is truo that, generally speaking, -tho yield per aero will not bo u largo one not quite an average but a greater breadth of land was sown with Wheat last full than ever before, owing to the prevailing high prices current for Wheat, together with the favorable woath cr, both offering strong inducements to tho fanner to cultivate this grain, and the result is that the, quantity of Wheat gath ered the prcent sllarvest is greater by ful ly ten per cent, than has been gathered any previous season; and, not only this, but it has been secured in the Jest possi ble condition. Last year the crop was u very good one.but fully tho one-half of that in tho Northern States was damag ed by wet, and the one-fourth cf that thus damaged was so badly injured that it was unmerchantable; but, notwitiistanding this, we exported mora Wheat and Wheat Flour to foreign countries than ever be fore in any ono season, except perhaps 1853, and had a surplus left, as tho re ceipts this summer prove; and there is no doubt that should tho crops fa'l in Eu rooe even partially, we shall be able to send to England and the Continent, more j Flour and Wheat by twenty-five por cent, than we did last or any previous year, should prices bo sufficiently high to in duce shipments.

The Mississippi Free Trader says: YPhero ivns Fremont Bcruf A Vermont correspondent of tho New York Express states that John C, Fro-, mont was born in Lower Canada. Ifso, of course ho is ineligible to tho Presi dency, Fremont's biographers do not agree as to his birth-place. By one it is stated to be Savannah, by another Charleston, by another Virginia. One of these writers informs us that Fremont's father led a wandering life among tho aborgines of the South. But tho Vermont correspond ent ofthe Express states that his wan derings were in the Fronch settlements of Lower Canada. This is probable, as the' elder Fremont was a Frenchman and a fidler, and moro likely to find support among Frenchmen than among the Creeks or Chorokecs. This doubt os to the birth place of Fremont must seriously impair his strength. If he cannot prove that he was born in the United States, thousands and hundreds of thousands will refuse to vote for him, who might otherwise have been inclined to do so; It is worthy of remark that John C. Fremont is the first candidate for the Presidency concerning whoso origin and religious faith the least doubt existed.
