Opinions of Eminent Men in England on i he
Comparative Merits of the English and Amer
ican Systems.— ln a speech before the Radnor
shire Agricultural Association, in Wales, by Sir
John Walsh, a member of the English House of
Commons, and whose opinions carry with them
great weight, utterance was given to thefollowiug
comparison. ... ,
I believe that there is no greater mistake in pol
itics than to identify those very different words
nml nriueinles —to suppose that democracy and
[Cheer.] Pure <iemoe
racy is not liberty ; we have only to cross the At
lantic and we see a state of society far more demo
-rrtic than our own, but far less free. [Cheers]
Any man who has really had a practica acquain
tance with the working of that model republic
which is so lauded by theoretical democrats, must
arrivejat the conclusion that it its not only a less
perfect state of society, but a less tree community
than England— [cheers]— that is action is less free
and all, that its thought is less tree, for on every
side the natives of that republic are enchained by
the despotism of public opinion itsell—-the despo
tism of the inferior intellect dictating to the supe
rior. [Hear,hear, and cheers.]
The principle asserted in the above extract is
generally considered, in this country, to be a po
litical heresy. TW is a great disposition to re
gard whatever the majority may do as right, and
hence,as rational liberty does not involve the priv
ilege to do what is wrong, the popular idea exists
that liberty and democracy are convertible terms.
A more erroneous and dangerous doctrine never
took root in a republican government. It is based
upon an essentially erroneous assumption that
what a majority of a certain number of people
think upon a given question is right. Upon this
theory it would not he difficult to demonstrate the
orthodoxy of the most monstrous and diabolical
dogmas that ever cursed the earth with their per
nicious sway. There is no great principle, in
science, politics or religion upon which the iaith
of the world has not contained, and its practice
developed, more of error than of truth. Strike
the record of governmental crime and folly from the
page of history and the chief memoranda of the
world’s existence would be destroyed. Across the
dim ages, truth would occasionally send her stellar
beam, but, only, to illustrate widely separated

ror and chango that Constitutions are framed. 11
is to make durablo certain principles which are
recognized at the foundations of Governments that
limitations upon the action of majorities arc in
corporated in the fundamental laws of every free
people. While we will not admit the inference of
the speaker, from acomparison of the two govern
ments, to be just, wo do concede that there is such
a thing as the despotism of a majority, and that
this despotism is even more terrible and grinding
than any other, because it is wholly irresponsible.
Reward the Faithful.
That Mr. Peterson Thweatt has made the best
Comptroller General we have ever had, says the
Macon Telegraph, is the just award which both
parties ill Georgia have pronounced in favor ol
this meritorious, industrious and faithful officer,
and we hope the present Legislature will endorse
the verdict of tlio public by a substantial evidence
of its good opinion of Mr. Thwcatt’s zeal in the
service of the State. Will not some member in
troduce a bill to increase the salary of the Comp
troller General at least niue hundred dollars?
Sixteen hundred is the present pay, and is alto
gether inadequate to the amount and character of
the labor required to he performed. Mr. ‘I hweatt s
reports have brought before the Legislature in
formation of great importance, and wo think the
Legislature will be doing an act of justice to give
him twenty-five hundred dollars —if he had a
wife we would double the sum.
Report of President Church. —W r e
have recieved from a friend at Milledgeville,
the report of the venerable President of Frank
lin College, made to the Senatus Academicus du
ring tlicir recent session. It is written in a plain,
straightforward stylo, and places its author
among thc*advocates for the establishment ot a
magnificent State University and a general sys
tem of common school instruction.

The Opening of Congress. —Congress will
meet on Monday, the 6th of December next, and
already a number of members of Congress are
here. The new hall of the House of Representa
tives, as well as the old Senate chamber, is the
scene of busy preparation, and no little confusion,
on all the doors a placard has been placed warn
ing visitors of paint, and insido you see workmen
actively employed in tacking down the carpet, ar
ranging the chairs and desks, and making every
thing ready for the transaction of the nation's
business. The appearance of the hall has been
much improved since the adjournment of the last
session. It is true that the carpet appears to be
somewhat worn and faded, but still that does not
mar the general effect.— lUctsS. Inion.

Milledgeville, Not. 15th 1858.
The proceedings in the Senate to-day were j
principally confined to the passing of bills, some ‘
of a general and interesting nature, but the mail
arrangements are such as preclude the possibility of j
sending you a report of their proceedings until to- j
morrow, there were no debates at all, and very few j
remarks even were made, there being so many of |
the Senators in the House as left scarcely a quo- j
rum in their chamber. A bill in relation to the !
manumission of slaves, which bad been made the i
special order for this day, was postponed, so were j
some other bills of interest. The bill providing
for annual elections was defeated by one vote.
There was unusual interest excited early in the
morning, it having been understood that the
Macon and Brunswick Railroad bill passed yes
terday, would to-day be re-considered, and long ;
before the Lour for calling the House to order ar- j
rived, the galleries as well as the floor were crowd
ed ; “ladies fair” lent their smiles to counteract
the influence created by the murky atmosphere,
and the members by their attendance evinced the
general feeling of excitement in regard to State
aid. The Hon. Speaker, Mr. Underwood being
absent on leave, Mr. Milledge took the Chair, and
presided over the House with dignity, and to this
gentleman may bo in part attributed the order
which was observed during the whole morning.
Mr. Irwin of Wilkes, rose. I gave notice to the
House that I would move a re-consideration of the
bill passed yesterday lending the credit of the
State to the Macon & Brunswick Railroad. If I
can gain the attention of the House, I propose to
show that this bill is based upon nothing so far as
we know, but the credit of irresponsible stock
holders. The gentleman portrayed so beautifully
the bay and country surrounding Brunswick, that
I can almost imagine myself looking out upon its
broad expanse of waters. The gentleman said
that his section was true and loyal to the South,
and I believe, sir, as ho stated, all his constituents
would take up arms against a common enemy. I
have yet to learn, sir, that although the sun still
lends its benificent rays to gladden the waters of
Brunswick Bay, and though they sparkle in the
placid beams of the moon, that this, the best Bay
on the Southern Atlantic claims the aid of the
State to the Macon & Brunswick Roilroad. I
come now to the discussion of this question : If I
am correctly informed, it takes $15,000 or $20,000
a mile to build a road; at this rate it would take
three millions of dollars to build the road. Now,
sir,deduct then SBOO,OOO, and the State would have
to endorse bonds to the amount 0f51,100,000, and
the company borrow the same amount. Under
the most favorable circumstances, and considering
it the most profitable enterprise that has ever been
started, it would tako the company fifty years, at
a liberal calculation, to pay up this amount. But,
sir, they propose to pay their bonds in twenty
years, it cannot be done. What then would be
the consequences ? The State would have to step
forward and pay these bonds. Is there any pro
vision made for this ? They say that if the bonds
are not paid, why the road and equipments shall
be sold at public outcry, how much would the
road bring under the hammer of the Sheriff? —
Not 10 cents on the dollar. What would be the
consequence ? why, sir, the State would have to
step forward and pay for the road, and she would
then own another Road. One section of this Bill
says that the individual property of the stock hold
ers would be mortgaged to the State. The Su
premo Court has decided that when a charter ex
pires, the debts due to and form the corporation ex
pire with it, then when the road becomes bankrupt
tkeckarter is at an end. Now who are the stock
holders ? Who will they be 20 or 50 years hence ?
The men who originally subscribe, or may they
not be men of straw —besides only SBOO,OOO will
bo owned by private individuals. Will gentlemen
run this risk of prostrating the credit of the State ?
They say that the State will be secured. Twenty
years will make great changes, sir, and there is a
difference between States and individuals. I call
the attention of the House to tho motto of our
State •• Wisdom, Justice and Moderation” let
gentlemen bear this in mind. Look at the Geor
gia and Central Railroads. Did they have State
aid? and look at them now ! To lend aid to this
railway, sir, would be injustice. Suppose a pri
vate individual to have built a mill or factory on
a stream in his own county, would it be just and
right for the State to ruin his enterprise by build
ing another ? Would it be just or wise to lend
aid to an enterprise, which will ruin another, one
gotten by individual energy and industry? Look
at your beautiful Savannah, the empire city of
your empire State. Look at the millions she has
contributed to the developement of our resour
ces in building the Central Railroad. Look, sir,
at the Georgia Road, an individual enterprise. —
Shall the State be so unjust as to lend aid and
build roads to injure the industrious citizens of
Savannah and Augusta, who never asked State
aid, sir. Let every tub stand on its own bottom;
let this road be built, sir, by individual industry
Our State has progressed rapidly. Let us move
onas we have done, by sure and steady means,
and difficulties may arise. Commercial crises
may spread over the country, and our State will
be enabled, like the sturdy oak"of the forest, whose
roots have expanded and which have grown with
its growth, and strengthened with its strength, to
defy the whirlwi id and the storm. But if we
taae a backward .step, retrace our steps and em
bark in these enterprises, Georgia will be placed
in a condition where her faith and credit will be
liable at any moment to prostration. Let us
stand as we are, and move forward by regular and
uniform steps by that wise and well founded pro
gress which alone can make us prosperous and
Mr. Walker of Henry : There is nothing flowery
about me. I know nothing but what I have learn
ed from observation, and I am in favor of giving
aid to those poor boys of Southern Georgia. 1
have no doubt if you will give them aid, open a
market for their produce they will work, Sir. The
gentleman don't want to give State aid. I have
been in Savannah & Augusta, but they never work
more than two hours a day Sir, that’s not the
way I was raised Sir. I say help cm Sir, and it
will be like a grain of mustard seed Sir, it will
take root in the 27-foot waters of Brunswick bay,
and grow and wax strong sir. I shall vote against
reconsidering the Bill.
Mr. Howard of Muscogee. If I had knoivn on
Saturday that there would have been no opposi
tion, I should have attempted to give some rea
sons in opposition to the bill. 1 do not feel
that I should do my duty were I to keep quiet,
when the State is on the eve of inaugurating so
dangerous a principle. The gentleman from Glynn
Mr. Speaker, in his eloquent speech of Saturday
showed a good knowledge of human nature. I
honor those who used their influence for the devel
! opment of Cherokee Georgia, why ? because there
was uo hope that, that country would ever be de
veloped by individual enterprise. The gentleman
from Glynn said that the 12 counties through
which the road will pass, pay l-10th of the taxes of
tho State, if they do this they have the means, and
only want the energy to build the road and devel
ope their resources: but the gentleman from
Glynn stopped by the way side to cull flowers of
rhetoric to adorn and beautify his eloquent ad
dress. It is the same with individuals as with
States. If you wish to tie their hands, all you have
t do Sir is to involve them in debt. I know not
! whether my bones will repose in the soil of this my
| native State, but I shall carry with me wherever I
go nothing but the love of Georgia enshrined in
| my “heart of hearts” and a desire ot her good.
! I have been told that the building of this road
will benefit my native city Columbus, but I can
j not allow a love of section to influence my love for
j the whole State, and should we aid this enterprise
we would have to aid in others and there would
be no end to State aid. I am opposed to the Bill
upou these grounds.
Mr. Kenan, I have the highest regard for the
city of Macon, for the Section and for this enter
prise ; but I am opposed to lending State aid to
j any private enterprise.
The learned gentlemen from Glynn mistook the
i views of Ex-Gov. Johnson. It is true that both
. Governors Johnson and Brown have vaguely
i kiatfd at the idea of Stat* aid, but that was to
aid the State and not a section. I voted for State
aid to the State Road, hut then we had a redun
dant Treasury and I only voted for the excess in
the treasury, but I am told that in doing this, I
allied myself to that side of the question. I deny
this fact. Am I by that vote bound to tax my
people for every enterprise asking State aid—l
voke the spirits of Jackson, of Jefferson and Wash
ton. Let inc read their opinions on the subject of
nationaldebt. (Mr. K., read several articles.) —
| They held that the highest good of the State ex
i isted in a freedom from debt.
If a gentleman living in Macon or on the line
| of this road says he will not subscribe, where have
j you the right to tax him, thus making him aid in
! it whether he wishes it or not, I tell you, Repre
j sentatives if you pass this Bill you must pass the
Elijay and Air Line Bills, but Macon alone is able
to build this road if she needs it, the others are
not similarly situated, and I should vote to aid
them, before I should to aid this one. Because I
voted that the State should become a joint owner
to the amount of $120,000 in the Milledgeville &
Gordon Road I am bound to vote in aid of this,
j Look at the difference, the State owns property
; here, and individuals had subscribed $175,000.
The power of the Representative to tax his peo
ple for a general purpose, is different from taxing
them to aid iu a private enterprise. Are they sy
nonymous? Did voting the surplus funds in the
Treasury of Georgia to aid tho development of
Cherokee Georgia, commit me to vote for the en
terprize now? This bill Is inaugurating anew
and great principle. Brunswick has had two
Railroad charters. What has been the conse
quence? Has she built her roads? They have
languished and died. Still, a few years ago when
Brunswick appealed for aid, we said let us do the
same for that as for the other portions of Georgia,
and we voted the State a joint owner in the Main
Trunk Road as a feeder. What did Brunswick
promise? She promised to build approaching
roads; but, sir, having done no such thing, she is
hack here in two years, asking the State to build
her a road which will net aid the State in general
but only Brunswick. Now if they get this char
ter with State aid, what will they do? Why com
mence at Brunswick, and build up a gap of forty
miles, which will cor uoct them with the Maiu
Trunk, and that i- L neir object. The prudence of
our Executives !..as so far restrained the expendi
tures. Why I? t submit the question to the peo
ple, and see if they are in favor of taxing them
selves to bulid the Road, and lend State aid to
Mr. Hardeman: I have not time to cull flowers
by the wayside; but I wish to present the true
features of the bill. I would ask the gentleman
from Wilkes, if the State is not secured why he
did not secure it. But sir, the State is secured.—
First by the road and secondly by the property
of the Stockholders. Gentlemen say this road
is to break down the State road, to break down
Savannah. Two years ago gentlemen from Chat
ham opposed a State aid till the Main Trunk
was turned towards Savannah, and how different
ly they acted. We want money, we don’t care
what name you give it—State aid or not. The
State will be benefitted by the road; it will devel
op this portion of the State. Let the State give
ussßoo,ooo or $1,900000 and become a copartner.
The road will induce competition, and by lower
ing freights enhance the return of products to the
producer. The history of Railroads is that capi
tal and population follow in their line. I would
not pluck ono laurel from the brow of Savannah.
One seaport is not enough. Cotton is piled up
all over her streets, and she can’t accommodate
the growing business. Mr. Hardeman alluded to
tho fall in the price of Cotton when yellow fever
broke out in 1854. !(Did cotton remain at the
same figure during that season, when other South
ern cities were similarly afflicted?) Mr. Harde
man thought cotton enough went to Savannah
from the way stations on the Contra] Railroad,
and that building this road would lower the rate
of freight on the Central R. R., and so benefit
Cherokee Georgia by opening another market for
her wheat and mineral ores. He was evidently- in
favor of having an opposition to the Central Rail
Mr. Gordon followed Mr. Hardeman. To-mor
row we will send a continuation of the debate.
After Mr. Gordon and the gentleman from
Gwinnett, a question arose in regard to who should
have tho concluding speech. Mr* Milledge made
the decision which was confirmed by the House.
The afternoon session has been long and stormy
—they are still at it. We will try to do justice to
all concerned in to-morrow’s letter of this after
noon’s proceedings. R. G.
Mr. Seward's European Analogy.
Mr. Seward is one of the most specious and lu
bricious, but one of the very loosest of reasoners.
His historical citations are seldom accurate, and
his analogies are often fanciful, and for purposes
of illustration or corroboration no analogies at all.
In his late Rochester speech—about which some
of our Southern cotemporaries have been unduly
exercised in our opinion—Mr. Seward, wishing to
bring up some crushing modern instances against
American slavery, remarked that “free labor had
already supplanted slave labor in every State of
Europe, except Russia and Turkey : and even
those States, despotic as they were, are found en
gaged in the abolition of slavery.”
Now, slave labor in Europe, such as the speaker
means,was quite a different thing from slave labor
iu this country. Passing by the question whether
free labor in Europe enjoys every advantage that a
philanthropist could wish or a statesman con
ceive ; passing by the disassociation of capital and
labor there, a great chasm ever widening between
the millionaire and the starving operative ; and
granting, for the argument’s sake, that Europe is,
in that respect especially, a model for America, we
would suggest, as a fatal derogation from the force
of the example, that African slavery never exist
ed in Europe, except, possibly, to a limited extent
in Turkey, that African slaves were never emanci
pated therefore by the wholesale in Europe, and
that consequently there is nothing in the history
of white emancipation in Europe to show what
should be done with black slavery in the United
States. The truth is, instruction sets just the oth
er way. The black slavery of this country, that
is, the subordination of an inferior race, and that
only and exclusively, opposed as it is to monopoly
privileges and the oppressions of capital, and re
cognizing as it does the true dignity and freedom
of white men, can teach the free labor of Europe
many a wholsome lesson. But Mr. Seward, be
lieving the negro as capable of enjoying liberty as
the white man, or the white man as lit to be a
slave as the negro, is not the man to interpret the
instruction.—A 7 . 0. Delta.
The American Union can exist, and will exist,
without the National Democracy, whenever that
party is displaced from power, and the Govern
ment controlled by honest national men, who look
to the good of the country, instead of the pros
perity of their party. If the Democracy is dis
placed nationally, it does not follow by any means,
that the Republicans would be placed in power,
and if they were, what would be the difference ?
What would be the difference? Just the dif
ference between Buchanan, who says that so long
as he is in power, the laws shall be administered
with equal justice to both sections of the Union,
according to the Constitution, and Seward, who
appeals to a higher laic than the Constitution,
says that the black man has equal rights with the
white man, and that the “Supreme Court shall be
remodeled ,” so that this higher law may be car
ried out. Just the difference between the Cincin
nati platform, which gives to the South equal
privileges witb the North in the territory of the
United States, and the Republican platform whose
cardinal doetrine is “no more slave state*.” Just
the difference between the Democrat who says that
we have a right to hold slaves as we hold horses,
and the abolitionist, who hopes and r-vpects to live
until not the foot of a single slave shall press
American soil. That’s all the difference. Enough
for those who believe in resistance to Abolition
domination, but scarcely enough for those who
believe a Southern Confederacy a “H ,” and
Toombs and Hunter and Clay so many separate
Satans. —(Montgomery Advertiser.)

WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE.
Almost every body has heard of Wood’s Hair
Restorative. That the word Restorative in thi*
case is no misnomer, we have the testimony of
individuals whose elevated position in the country
as well as their acknowledged and honorablo cha
racter as gentlemen, render whatever they publiely
asssertin the last degree reliable. Several of
these have tested, personally, the hair preparation
we are now speaking of, and certify to its amazing
efficacy in the most public manner possible. Their
certificates can be seen at the proprietor’s depot,
312 Broadway, New York, and once seen and
properly appreciated, we have no hesitation in
saying they will impress conviction on the most
skeptical mind. Wood's Hair Restorative is,
doubtless, the beet article of its kind ever yet pro
does not dye, but gives life, health and
beauty to the decaying, falling and dead, restoring
as if by magic, that which was supposed to be ir
recoverably lost. Heads nearly bald, and others
nearly white, are daily being changed to their
pristine beauty, and facc3 covered with pimples are
rendered as smooth as an infant’s, and blushing
as a rose, all by the use of Prof. Wood’s Hair Re

THE GORDY GRAPE.’
nPIIIS delicious and valuable table Grape was first
I brought to notice two years ago by Mr. L. Uordy
of this county. Those who have seen tiiis Grape are
willing to testify in its favor. To those who are unac
quainted with it we refer the following testimonial:
Columbus, Ga., October 1858.
MR. L. GORDY—Deak Sir:
We the undersigned have seen and eaten of your
delicious native Grape, and it affords us much pleasure
to state, that we think we have never seen a Grape
that would compare with it in excellence as a prolific
bearer, lhe size of its fruit and bunches, and their une
We hope that you may have a stock of growing vine*
of this valuable Grape sufficient to supply the large de
mand you will have lor them.
We recommend those of our friends who wish to
raise the Grape, by all means to purchase vines ol you,
as your Grape is, in our opinion, less liable to rot, and
ripens more uniformly than any other variety that we
have seen. [Signed by j

Startling Intelligence for Vox Populi f
P CTURE ALLERY IN FULL BLAST,
T HE undersigned announces to the citizens of Co
s lunibus, and in fact to air Georgia, that he is now
taking Pictures in as good style as they can be taken
in the • Empire State,” either by a foreign or natnt ar
tist. His prices range from that much despised sum—
fifty cents to ten dollars. And although he does not
pretend to say that he is the best artist in the United
States, yet lie fears not the result of a comparison with
those whose reputation is bolstered up by long adver
tisements and null's of their own manufacture. He
prefers that ladies and gentlemen should judge for
themselves. And if those in want of a good Picture
will tail and give him a trial, he will convince them
that he fully understands the modus o/erandi of picture
taking. All he wants is a fair and impartial trial, and
he fears no competition from any quarter.
His Gallery’ is over Barnard’s’ Store, Broad Street,
where he will be happy to receive visitors and show
them his specimens at all tim6.
