The Southern Recorder r*. The Seeders.
it lias never been our fortune to meet astrong
er display of the arrogance and assumptions of
Whigery than is exhibited in the Southern Re
corder of the 19th ult., in its attempt to justify
the course of those Members of the Legislature
who left the Hall, for the purpose of stopping
the business of legislation.
From the manner in which that paper dis
courses upon the subject, one might be led to the
conclusion, that those gentlemen represented a
particular portion of the people of Georgia, who
hive rights and interests totally different from
those of the people at largo; and that the rights
of those whom they represented have been gross
ly outrage 1 and destroyed, by a most unrighteous
and unheard of act of injustice, tyranny and op
pression. We do not so read the Constitution,
nor do we so understand the genius and spirit of
our institutions. The people of Georgia, as we
understand it, are entitled to a given number of
representatives in Congress.—we nowhere find
it written, that any particular number of them
shall entertain this, or that opinion,—or in other
words, that the holding of a particular set of
opinions, shall entitle a man to a seat in Con
gress. On the contrary, it is left free to all
opinions, the people having the right to select
those whose opinions shall suit them best.
Their rights taken away from them ! One
half of the people of Georgia disfranchised for
sooth !! Pray Mr. Recorder where did you get
this idea ? Are any of them deprived of the
right of voting.' or of a representation in Con.
gress? —Why,suppose, that instead of the dis
trict system, wc elected our Representatives to
Congress, by general ticket, as we did formerly,
and one party should elect all of them, would
you call the other half disfranchised? or would
you, if your party happened tobe in the majori
ty, by a few huudred votes, appeal not to the
liberality, hut to the justice of your friends and
insist that they should not trample upon the
rights—“the civil rights of the minority and
disfranchise one half of t lie people of the State’’
by electing all the members of your own party ?
Perhaps you might—hut we have, heretofore,
had no intimation, that such have been your
ideas of liberality and justice.
Two years ago, your friends had a very mea
gre majority in the Legislature,—there were too
Senators in Congress to elect—the vote in the
election for Governor, had just shown that the
majority of the people of the Stale were against
you. We heard nothing then of your liberality,
yon said nothing about the rights of your oppo
nents— nothing about the disfranchisement of
ene half of the people of Georgia; hut you
brought all your influence to bear to have both
Senators elected of your own party.
But to return to the “rights” of which the
Southern Recorder speaks. What arc they ?
Wo desire him ;o define them and point to the
source whence they are derived. So far as we
iiave seen or heard there is nothing in any law
passed, or attempted to he passed by the Legisla
ture, which deprives any man, either Whig or
Democrat of the privilege of voting, or of being
a candidate for Congress or any- other office.
Docs a man's calling himself a Whig, or in
deed., nny otticr ntimo bo mnny ol.oncu to give
himself, confer upon him rights, separate and
distinct from, and above those enjoyed by other
men? If by this process we can increase and
enlarge our rights, we had all better adopt it-
Has a Whig any more rights than a Baptist,
Methodist, Episcopalian, Presbyterian or any
other set of men who choose to adopt for them
selves some particular name ? Wc think not,
hut if he has, let us at once settle the matter and
provide by the Constitution, that there shall be
so many Whigs certain in Congress, and the
Legislature, and as many more as they can any
how manage to get. This they arc fairly enti
tled to upon the Recorder’s principle, as we
know no other class, sect, or denomination of
people in this country who set up such a claim.
“It only remained” says the Recorder, “ for
the Whig representatives to decide whether they
should sanction by their presence and legalize
such an outrage on the civil rights of their con
stituents, or to retire and throw the whole re
sponsibility of their disfranchisement upon those
determined to voteaway their rights.”
Just hear him !! ! “ The civil rights of their
constituents!!” Who are their constituents ?
Are they not the people? Well, what civil
rights of the people has been outraged and voted
away? Will the Recorder inform us? Ah,
hut the Whig rights, that is the thing. We have
heard of the rights of the people—but this thing
of Whig rights is rather anew tiling in this
country. In England, the constitution, if they
can be said to have one, recognises the rights of
the King, the rights of the aristocracy, and tho
rights of the common people—in this country,
we have heretofore been all considered com
mon people—but we suppose now, we are to
have Whig rights and rights of the common
people. But did those gentlemen who left the
Hall represent nobody but Whigs? If they
were there to represent only a particular portion
of the people of Georgia, or rather to take charge
of tile rights and interests of a particular sect,
then it were well that they left, and it were
better that they never return. How was it with
the member from Jackson and ono from Bibb ?
Bid they represent none but Whigs?
The Recorder continues, “For this intermis
sion of the business of the House, and conso
quont useless expenditure of the public treasure,
we hold the Democrats alone responsible.”
Perhaps you do, but we think that the people of
Georgia will hold responsible those by whoso
act tiie intermission and the expenditure occur
red—and wo shall, according to our humble
ability, do our full part, to enable them to sec in
its proper light, this monstrous course the Recor
der seems so anxious to justify.

1 he Coast Survey. —The Charleston Mercu
ry, speaking of the operations of this Survey,
says : “The base line on Edisto Island extends
from North to South Edisto Rivers, in South
westerly direction, and is about a mile distant
from the ocean. Its site was determined bv
Assistant Jns. S. Williams, of the Coast Survey,
in 1838. Great difficulty was cxpeienced in se
lecting it. The requisites were, that it should
cross no creek or salt marsh, and that it should
strike no building, nor any considerable body of
wood, and that it should be so situated, that a
third point might be found, nearly equi-distant
from each of them. Those acquainted with the
topography of the sea islands, will be surprised
that a line could be found upon any of them,
six miles and two-thirds long, fulfilling the above
A CONTROVERSY TO BE SETTLED —lt IS Well
known, says the New York Express, that an
empty bottle hermetically scaled, when lowered
to a groat depth at sea, will come up full of wa
ter. The why and the wherefore of this result
has long been a matter of controversy among
scientific men. A gentleman who entertains an
opinion that a bottle can be mado that cannot be
filled with water, has taken some pains to estab
lish his position, by having two bottles of the
form of globes, made of the thickness of three
quarters of an inch, which are without boles in
any part. The bottles are to be intrusted to the
care of Cap*. E. E. Morgan, who sails on the
Bth of February, in the packet ship “Southamp.
ton” for London, —one is plain, and the other
ground with the name on it of “ Southampton.”
The subject is one that lias occupied the spec
ulation of so many, that this trial has occasion
ed a good deal of remark. The bottles are made
with the belief that formor experiments of the
kind will be controveited by this trial. The
result will be highly important and interesting.
This experiment has been fully tested already.
See a letter, page 269, vol. 4, Scientific Ameri
can. A glass tube hermetically sealed was sunk
89 fathoms on board the ship Tarolinta bound
for California. It came up without the least
particle of salt water in it.
Surveys Routes between the Mississippi Val
ley and the Pacific. —Among the papors laid be
fore Congress recently by the President, wc find
a letter from Mr. Crawford, Secretary of War,
dated July 11, 1849, to Col. Abf.rt, of the
Topographical Engineer Corps, instructing him
relative to tlie appropriation ofSSO,COO for sur
veys of the best course for a wagon road or
railway to the Pacific. Somewhere on the
Mississippi, between St. Louis and Natchez, is
suggested as being a fit starting point, and “ it
iias occurred to the War Deparment that a
practicable route would be found, commencing
at or near Vicksburg, and running a westerly
course—and, after crossing the Red Itiver, fol
lowing on the plains, as nearly as the nature of
the country will admit, the south or right bank
of the river up to its sources, through the pass
at Mount Guadalupe; thenco following the
valley of the Puerco in a southerly direction,
and crossing that river. The Rio Grande can
be reached at or near El Paso, through a pass in
the Uuaditlupe Mountains," or •• through passes
North or South of Mount de Cuballos.” Ano
ther route is suggested, beginning the survey op
posite Memphis or Cairo,or at St. Louis, procee
ding towards the valley of the Arkansas River,
tltonce up to the confluence of the Canadian Riv
ers, and to the Rio Grande. The surveys west
of the Rio Gande are to be confined to a space
between that valley and the Sierra de los
Mimbros, with a view of finding a pass through
it. Mr. Crawford is ofopinion that the survey

which is finally to be complcted from St. Joseph

The Winter in Europe. —While we have
been enjoying a remarkable mild winter on this
side of the Atlantic, in Europe, both at the
North and South, the season appears to have
been one of unusual severity. A letter from
Florence, of Jan. sth rays : —For the last forty
years, the cold lias not been felt so severely hero
as it is now. All the hills near the city are
covered with snow, and the thermometer has
been as low as 12 degrees of Reaumer, (10 2-5
degrees of Fahrenheit.)” Letters from the
frontier of Italy state that the Convent of St.
Bernard is entirely blocked up with snow; the
monks have been obliged to cut a subterranean
passage, in order to extricate thomscli e*.
Brick Machine. —The Tallahassee Sentinel
ofthe 26th ult. states that Mr. E. B. Ci.akk, of
that place, has invented and applied to patent a
machine for pressing bricks from the clay, in its
natural state, which, for the economy, simplici
ty and efficiency of the thing, is well worthy of
attention. The pressure is applied by two up
right elbow levers, alternately straightened by
a crank attached to a perpendicular shaft, turned
with all ease by a single horse. The lower arm
of these levers plays in a cast iron box, the bot
tom of which by an ingenious and simple con
trivance is forced tip as the arm is raised, and
delivers the pressed brick to the hand of the ten
der. All the labor necessary is to push in the
clay, take away the brick, and now and then oil
the press. The machine, with the labor of one
man to tend it, one to dig, one to wheel the clay,
and one to wheel away the bricks, turns out
3,000 per day. About five tons pressure is ap
plied to the brick, and it comes out exceedingly
compact. He has pressed some 50,000, and they
are a good deal harder unburnt, than most of our
Florida “slop bricks” are when they come from
the kiln. One horse can drive two of these ma
chines with ease, for the pressure is brought only
upon one brick at a time, and Mr. Clarke thinks
that S3OO will he a fair price for constructing and
putting up one of these processes. The com
mon, contrivance for bund brick costs nearly as
much, and requires greater horse power.
In these easy times, when people are or per
haps should be thinking of building substantial
houses, our friends will, if wc mistake not, find
in this simple machine a valuable desideratum.
Patent Rifle. —The, New York Post says :
A modest Prussian mechanic, by the name of
Charles Hartung, now in this city, has invented
anew style of rifle, known by the name ofLunt
Nadei, (darting needle,) which is attracting
much attention. It is impossible to present a
scientific description of it without engravings,
but wo can give our readers a general notion of
its peculiarities. In the first place, it loads at
the breech. In thesccond place, it is discharg
ed by a “darting needle/’ which pierces the
bottom of the cartridge and ignites the powder
by friction. This is done inside, without any
priming, and as well in wet as in dry weather.
Behind thecartridgc is an air chamber, in which
expanded air is used in propelling the ball. The
breech-pin slides in and out, and all together
operates with curious simplicity. It is said to
carry a ball eight hundred yards effectively.
The Scientific American states that the guns
were used by tho Prussians in their late war
with Denmark, with terrible effect, and that all
the Prussian light cavalry are to be equipped
with them. A competent board of commis.
sioners will soon determine whether the inven
tion has all the merit which its simplicity and
ingenuity give promise of.
Telegraph to Knoxville. — Mr. Solis, of
the firm of Wm. F. Kent & Cos., of Zanesville,
Ohio, is now in Knoxville fur the purpose of
endeavoring to secure a sufficiency of stock to
construct a line of telegraph from Knoxville to
Chattanooga, there to intersect a line to he put
up from Atlanta, Ga., to Huntsville, Ala. A
line us toicgrnpli is now in operation between
Louisville,Ky., and Tuscutnbia, Ala., which is
to be extended to Huntsville. The proposed
line to Chattanooga would, therefore, place us in
instant communication with every portion of the
country. This to business men is a great and
important advantage, and vve trust our citizens
will give the subject that consideration it de
serves. A telegraph would greatly add to the
business and importance of tho place, and we
think tho stock in such an enterprise would be
profitable. Telegraph lines in sparsely and
newly settled portions of the west, yield hand
some dividends to the stockholders, and we can
not see why a line may not be made equally
profitable here, with our steady increasing bu
siness, while it would be such an advantage to
the business men of the commercial metropolis
of East Tennessee as should induce them to
subscribe liberally to its stock. Success to the

cogee Railroad Company has completed a coni
tract with Mr. Gray, by which the cars are to
be moving on about thirty miles of the Road,on

Now comes the other great link that is to con- 1

more than once remarked, of the entire people
along its whole contemplated route. Every

means and good will, have pledged their efforts,
and joined their labor and capital to carry it
through. We are informed that stock suffici-.
ent has been taken to grade and build the entire i
superstructure from Girard to Mobile, without |
the promised assistance from New Oi leans, and
strong capitalists in that city have given assur
ances that stock enough will be taken thereto
lay down and furnish the cars. A me
morial from the Legislature of Alabama has been
forwarded to Washington, asking for a portion
of the public lands along the route to aid in the
construction of the work.”
Crawford’s Statue.— The Boston Journal
states that the model offered by Mr. Crawford
for the Virginia Monument to Washington is as
original in conception ns it is graceful and beau
tiful in execution. The pediment or base of
the whole is in the form of a star, each ray of
which is adorned by a statue. One ofthese is an
ideal impersonation of the State of Virginia, who,
with a torch in her hand, and a broken crown at
her feet, appears a9 the champion of freedom and
of progress. The other statues will represent
some of the most distinguished men of Virginia,
contemporaneous with tho great chief himself.
From the centre rises an oblong pedestal, sur
mounted by an equestrian statue of Washington,
which is to be of bronze. Mr. Crawford lias not
modelled the Father of bis Country oitlieriu the
voluminous cloak which he never wore, or in
that classic but uncomfortable costume ofi:ature>
in whic it is still less probable that lie ever ex
hibited himself to the public gaze. He appears
jo us as be naturally would, dressed in iiisown
regimentals, with the sword and cocked hat his
torically appropriate to him. The statues in the
model arc necessarily of every small dimensions,
but this does not deprive them of a certain grace
ful and grand effect—one of them especially, a
figure draped in a military mantle, the brows
shaded by a helmet, has in it a world of tender
and touching expression. These statues are to
be modelled ofa size considernhley beyond that
of life. They require and deserve to be seen
in colossal propotions. And when this noble
germ ofthe sculptor’s thought shall have expan
ded like a flower to its gigantic fruition—when
bronze and marble shall liavo responded as wil
ling instruments to bis creative touch, then we
believe that Virginia may challenge the whole
domain of modern art to produce a monument
which shall surpass this in appropriateness, in
beauty, and in grandeur.
