R. J. Warier and the Admihistrati©.I*.— 1 *. I tie
Louisville Journal says that when K n
Walker was in the United States Senate, lie was
the leader of the Democracy ol that body, from
the Senate Mr. Walker went into Mr l oiks
Cabinet as Secretary ol the 1 aeasury, and, in that
capacity, made himsell the idol ot the Democracy
everywhere When the Buchanan Adminwtra
tion appointed him Governor of Kansas.the whole
Democratic party hailed his selection aa the best
that could possibly have been made from the on
tire Union, and he was greeted with ten thousand
enthusiastic expressions of Democratic gratitude
for the devotion manifested by him to the inter
estsof the Democratic party in condescending jo
accept an office that might not be deemed fuliy
worthy of his transcendaut ability.
And now the Washington “Union,” the mouth- j
piece of the Administration, denounces Robert J.
Walker as “a traitor and swindler. We.l, asks
the “Journal” if tra'tors and swindlers are thus
honored and trusted and lauded and idolized by
the Democracy of the Union, what is Demoratic
honor or trust or idolatiy wortli .
The editor of the Louisville Journal has the
reputation of a very shrewd and sagacious indi
vidual—a reputation which was never won and
can not be sustained by the perpetration of such
paragraphs as the foregoing. He employs the fact
of antagonism between the past and present conduct
of the Democracy towards Mr. Walker a= a mat
ter of reproach to that party, and assumes thereby
that the inconsistency is due to it. This position
involves a petitio principii, so manifestly that
any school boy may detect it. When Ilobt. J.
Walker was a member ol the United States Sen
ate, and subsequently, of Mr. Polk’s Cabinet, he
was considered a true friend to the Constitution
andthe South. His eminent services in behalf of
the annexation of Texas, especially endeared him
to the Southern Democracy. The statement made
by the Journal, then, is true, that his appointment
as Governor of Kansas w>as hailed with satisfaction
by Ins whole parly. But what has this todo with
his political “treason” or the question of the pro*
prietyofthe sentence pronounced against him.
Does the Journal intend to say, that having once
approved, weean never condemn. Such,indeed,
would not'be a far-fetched inference from the ar
ticle we have quoted. Under the administration
of that rule, by what penance can history ever
atone for the injustice she has done to Arnold and
his compeers in every age, whose names have been
inscribed upon the roll of'infamy 1 We will not
insult the intelligence of our readers with an at
tempt to prove Walkei’s desertion of the South
duiing his administration in Kansas. That i9 one
point on which all parties hoie are united. The
motive of his defection, also, is too plain to re
quire comment. Our cotemporary is doubtless
impelled toliis oblique commendation of this
quondam Kansas functionary by the considera
tion that his partv has gained w hat the Democracy
has discarded. It is quite natural thus to magnify
the importance of our own acquisitions; but it is |
not, under all circumstance, praise-worthy. The
viruous sentiment of the world has applauded the j
people of Great Britain for the contempt and ah
horrenee with which they regarded Arnold—ihe
We have received the Cuthbert Reporter con
taining au account of the Democratic Judicial
Convention, which assembled at Culhbert. We
have given our readers the proceedings of the Con
vention, and it is unnecessary to re-print them.—
Col. David B. Harrell of Webster, was the per
manent Chairman, and Messrs. T. L. Guerry and
L. B. Standifer, Secretaries.
in addition to what we have given in a previ
ous issue, we find ihe following resolution adop- \
ted, to wit:
Resolved, That the members of the Legislature
from the counties composing the Patanla Circuit
he requested to oppose the annexation of Chatta
hoochee county to the Chattahoochee Circuit.
We promise our friend, Col. Raiford ot Chatta
chee, the mover of this resolution, that we will no
force Chattrdtoochee county (old Muscogee) into
this Circuit against the will of the citizens. We
have great respect for our old friends and would j
be pleased to form an alliance with thorn were it
not eo unpleasant. Truth compels us fo say, how- |
ever, as one of the Representatives of this Circuitt
in the Legislature, that we have never heard of the
Interesting to Newspaper Proprietors J
One of the courts of the State of Indiana recently
made a decision which is of interest to all news
paper proprietors throughout the Union. Aeon- i
troversy existed relative to a charge tor advertis
ing between the Commissioners of Hamilton ceun
ty and the Patriot newspaper. It wa9 held by ihe
Judge that “the published terms of newspapers
constitute a contract. If work is given to news
paper publishers, without a special contract con
travening the published terms, the publisher can
charge and receive according to the terms so pub
lished. It is not necessary to prove what the
work cost or was worth ; the publishers have a
right to fix the estimate value ot their columns,
and if so fixed, no other question need be asked* ‘
but the price thus charged can be recovered ”
Cable Signals Ceased!
As will be seen from our telegraphic dispatch
es, the signals through the great Atlantic Cable
have ceased The ominous silence of the opera
tors as to the cause of the interception of mes
sages have prepared the public mind tor this rev
elation. The men of science may now exhaust j
the rosources of'their prolific minds to solve the
mystery, if it is not soon ascertained that the fail- I
ure arises from a parting of the cable. The exper
iment, however, is tried sufficiently to test the
practicability ot so great an enterprise and thecel
ebrar'on in New York and the bonfires and illu- i
jminatlons in honor of the achievement will only
serve as a stimulus to nobler exertions in the fu- |
;ure. The end will yet be attained and another j
;able will yet be laid, which will unite together
hese two mighty nations of the earth.

the summary manner of his removal and the secta- .

Indians Adopting Civilization. —The
Minnesota Statesman is informed by Dr.
Daniels, of the Sioux agency, that about
75 of the Sioux Indians have signified their
intention of adopting thedress of their pale
faced brethren and pursuing an agricultural
life on their farms or lands near the agency
where many ot them have now from five
to ten acres under cultivation. But the
greatest step towards civilization is in their
requesting Superintendent Cullen to bring a
pair of shears to their settlement in order
to cut off their hair 1 This all uncivilized
or half civilized Indians look upon with
perfect abho:rence v Unclipped hair, with
the Indian, is jusi as indispensable as the
blanket, and a violation of this usage is a
forfeiture of Indian character.
The^Weather—Health of the City.
The storm of Wednesday and Wednes
day night'closed the bad spell of rainy wea
ther which had prevailed for several days
previous, tu.d the wind having dispersed
the clouds, came out from the north-west
on Thursday morning. The sky was bright,
and Ihe atmosphere cool and bracing
Yesterday was a clear, delightful day, with
a brisk \. N. W. wind. This state of
things could not but be favorable, and we
were gratified to learn yesterday that there
was a most decided improvement in the
health ot the city. We made diligent en
quiry, but heard of very few new cases of j
sickness of any kind—none of yellow fever. j
The physicians with whom we have con- j
versed assure us that the sickness is not I
only diminishing, but continues of a very I
mild character, and that, if the present fa- j
vorable weather should continue for a few I
days longer, we will have good grounds to .
hope that the wonted general good health
of the city will soon be re-established.
We have never had a healthier season
than the present up to about the commence- j
ment of the second week in this month, i
but the weather for some eight or ten days I
previous to Wednesday last—during the ■
brewing of the equinoctial storm which we i
have just experienced—was very unfavor
able to health, and during that time we
have had some fever and some few deaths
by yellow fever. But the favorable change
in the weather, with the very decided di
minution of the sickness, induces us to hope
that the worst is over, and without some
unfavorable change, hardly to be expected
at this season of the year, we shall soon
have the pleasure of announcing to our
friends abroad that the fever has disappear
ed from Savannah. Of one thing they may
rest assured, the Board of Health and the
press will keep the public correctly inform
ed in regard to the health of the city.
It is p.-oper that we should say that no
extraordinary alarm is felt by our citizens.
On the contrary, the opinion is very gener
al that, though we have had a few cases j
of yellow fever, we have not nor ate we
likely to have it as an epidemic.

been continuous, sometimes fluctuating
from day to day, but the weekly reports
showing a gradual increase. The returns
for the week ending last Sunday morning
at six o’clock summed up four hundred and
seventy two, an increase of twenty three
over the preceding week.
The yellow fever interments for the cor-?*

they were 243; in 1854 they were 284; in
