distance being four hundred miles.
In Asia the line (via the river Amoor) will
lie taken up by the Russian officers, and con

A late California newspaper mentions the
departure of fhe bark Golden Gate, bound
for the shores of Behring’s straits, with Col.
Bulkely on board, as superintendent of the
American portion of the enterprise.
It will thus be seen that by means of this
overland route, all the cities of tho Union
will be placed in telegraphic communication
with Asia and Europe. It is presumed that

EPISCOPAL RE-UNION NORTH AND
Our renders will remember the model epis
tle penned a week or two ago, by that “old
man eloquent” and Christian Bislioya Elliott
of Georgia, on the subject of re-union be
tween the Northern ant] Southern branches of
episcopacy, severed as they were at tho be
ginning of the war.
Tin- episcopalian bishops North, have just
been sitting in convention on that question,
and seem to have adopted for guidance, the
suggestions thrown out. by the bishop of qur
State. Bishop Pcn-rER of New York, tvaase-
leotcd as spokesman on the occasion, and de
livered an address breathing throughout the
essential spirit and meaning of Christianity,
that of peace and good will among men.-—
Bishop Potter declared he was uttering the
sense of the assembly, when he gave the as
surance that all Southern delegates should be
treated with every possible kindness and af
tentidn, and that the elections of the bishop ‘
of Alabama, '.afld.Ajkayisas, were to he pro
nounced valid, and in due form.
The newly elected bishop of Tennesse, Dr.
Quintaun (well known to our people, as act
ing Chaplain in the Confederate service) was
ushered in and received with the most dis
tinguished consideration. This feeling of
harmony, and conciliation characterized the
meeting throughout and will go far towards
healing those theological dissensions, which
three years ago were believed tn have erected
an impassible barrier, between Northern and
England and Canada.
All the schemes recently proposed by Can
adian ministers, 1 with the design of extricat
ing the province from its fiscal embarrass
ments, are the subject of discussion in Eng
land, but meet with little favor, unless we
except the plan of confederation. The pro
ject of an inter-colonint railway meets with a
frigid shoulder from the London Timet,
which sees no reason why England should
burden itself to. the extent of $46,000,000 for
the benefit of a remote dependency which
contributes “not a shilling to our revenue nor
a man to our army.” The propesed line is
regarded as nothing more than a gigantic
exaggeration in every respect of that stupen
dous folly, the Gmnd Trunk railway, by
which England Imught its experience so dear
ly and to so little purpose. The London
The truth Is that we have our choice of two
courses of policy with regard, to Canada—a
warlike and a pacific, a retrograde and pro
gressive policy. \Ye may set ourselves to
raise np a rival power to the United States,
and in order to defend that power trom their
attack, may plunge it into such inextricable
financial difficulties as to deprive it of all at
traction for the intending emigrant, nnd even
to drive out of it much of the ]H>pulntion
which has already chosen it ns a home. We
may look on our colony ns n military position
to lie defended—as a Roman ro/onia planted
ns a menace or a curb to a people,
must lie drilled and fortified, and kept open an d never did Nashville before give promise
during the hjclemencies of a Siberinu winter, of a brisker fall trade.

Brown, Esq., a stiring live man of the old
whig school of politics, and our former United
States district marshal for Tennessee, under
Taylor’s administration; All passed off
smoothly and the mayor elect handsomely en
tertained a large party of friends at his resi
dence last night.
The Tennessee legislature meets to-morrow;
and its deliberations will lie watched with
intense interest, not only from allparts of the
State, but front the' Whole country, or' at least
that portion of it where exists a* genuine
spirit of conservation and sincere desire to rfep
a restored Union and a peaceful country. * jl
have had interviews with several of the mem
bers who talk rationally, and promise prom
isingly. The disfranchise act of the last ses
sion, was an odious feature, and strong and
earnest hopes are entertained that it will bb
repealed. The eopiplexion of things have
materially changed since that was born, and
there is belief that it will yet tie strangled in
its infancy, Nevertheless the parties exclud-i
ed from franchise privileges affect the suhlS-
mest indifference as to the result. The ma
jority of “refuggys” are busy witli the more
important consideration's of bread and meat
and do not care to vote, and like the man
old Noah is said to have refused passage on
his ark, they “don’t believe it’s going to lie
much of a shower anyhow.” Governor
Browulow is here, and to judge from the tone
ofliis closet converse,!!; emphatically down
on negro suffrage. YOu mar look' for n little
characteristic strong Saxon, and a few philip
pics against things generally in Iris message
to-niorrow. On dit—that Iris son General
James B. Brownlow will, lead to the alter a
lovely arid accomplished daughter of “old
Williamson,” next Tuesday evening. The
fair bride is Miss Belle Cliffe, daughter of Dr.
Diih Cliffe, one of fhe most celebrated sur
geons in the west.
Among the lately returned old residents
here, I noticed yesterday on the streets Gen
erals Frarik Cheatham and Wm. B. Bate, and
Governor Foote of Canada memory. The
latter is somewhat “rg-grous” over the late
Jew-dah P. Benjamin letter from London,
and declares lie will write a reply thereto,
which will doubtless appear in the Dispatch
There are now five daily papers in Nash
ville, so you may see there is still nerve left in
our old Banner to bravely breast the tide of
sueli a competition. They are all. pretty
clever journals, too, considering their circum
scribed political limits,and one of them, which
is a German paper, is like our own bantling, a
new Richmond in the field.
The theaters are doing a living business,
with the Mitchells, (sisters of the little Pro
tean “Maggie”) at the old theatre, and a fe
male Ravel, who is starring at the new tem
ple of Thespis. In addition, we have Pol
lard’s Varieties in South Nashville, with the
Lamarrox sisters^ and a “free-and-easy” bal
let, now and then on Cherry street; and then,
again, ye gods; and little fishes, we. are to
have a “cir-ourions” next week.
Nashville is nlreadv beginning to recover
her wholesale trade and her,former commer
cial prestige. The grocery market here. is
said to be better than it ever was before, arid
interested parties declare, and we have,; ,rba-<
son to credit the assertion, that goods eanilte
purchased here at rates ‘absolutely under the
•New York and Cincinnati quotations. We

. .John Bull is really in ; frquble about the
Fenians. ( Ireland is surrpunded .by British
ships-of-war, title busiuesg of wlricfi' is to de-
prive Irish soldiers from the United States Of
the privilege, of sett frig foot upon their native
$nil. There is talk, about the dissatisfaction
of Irishmen in the ranks, of t|ie British arpiv.
Three-fifths of the private soldiers in tlifc
British army art Irishmen^ arid it is suW[iec-
ted that iriany of them may lie Fenians., If
British bayonets fail the government,, then
■what ( And if the present disturb,-(ppe
should go on, and become another Irish re
bellion, and there should' lie an Irish Presi
dent of Dictator, and-life should issue cotn-
missiops t-o adventurous Americans, ns Mr.
Davis did four years ago to the bold Britons,
Ireland would not long want a navy. , Under
British precedent* a score ofShenamloahs arid
Alabama* might ])rit r out''from American
port*, and sweep tho connnerce of England
from the ocean., ... , ... j _
As soon as England gets into serious difficulty
she will be able to appreciate the value of an
honest obedience of the neutrality laws. The
Fenian movement is not likely, however, to
become very formidable.The' Irish popu
lace, though excitable and bniyc, have hard
ly the capacity of organization and of wield
ing disciplincil masses. ’ The Irishriiiui in the
British army will, vrlth few'exceptions^ light
for tho queen: and those who. at.a.safodis
tance, are inciting the ppqr i ,mgn.,pf Ireland
into a desperate revolt, writ sec the mischief
they have done wlien it is too late for' tqe
remedy; and if they have the Ordinary feed
ings 'of manhood; they will repent .bitterly
the course of conduct that has ruined their
!!i','!,t <>])))ortunity, which, if well li-cl, "ill
do more to make lier independent of all fear
of invasion from America .than ten times the
fleets nml armies of which we can dispose.—
The fortifications of Quebec and Montreal
have, at any rate, this advantage—that they
may for a while protect our troops, and possi
bly facilitate their embarkation. The Inter
colonial railway can d<f nothing but mock
them with' the prospect of a communication

The Hebrew new year is, one, o£ the'
most solemn feasts of the Jewish Church,, cx-'
ccptiiig the day of atonement. For more
tlian forty cerituries—what a link in'llie roc-
ord of time! have them sold mu feasts iieyn
observed among the descendantsof Alirnhnm.
In every clime, wherever the feet of men
have trod, have these people gathered to do
honor to the Lord their Grid. ' The reason
why two days are celebrated is Iieeause it
seems that among the ancient Jews there was
a dispute with regard to the time, one; party
contending that it, was on one day, and the
other that it was the next following. Not lie-'
ingiible to fix upon tile dai*[ J thev agreed to
celebrate both. Christians would perhaps
have fought river such a point orntany rate,
would have established different churches.—
How distant through the vista of buried
age* seems the time since the date of the
Jewish esri ? lYHrit changes have Occrtrfcd ?
What empires have arisen, florirished, amd
Five thousand years have rolled away, and
the Hebrew* are now the only people Who
will still preserve the memorials of the first
ages of i the world. On- the Egyptian plains,
amid the Arabian wilderness, among'the
mountains of Palestine, long before q,, single
stone was placed in* Rome; aye, even before
the Parthenon win oonceivfctl'iof'Greece
known, did, these people celebrate 'their Rosh
Hashuna; and on down through the (gisty
ages that crowned the glory-trine of Tyre
and Sidoii, rif Sardia :'oid Plm‘riCci:l. The
age of Oyriisafiilthe age of. Mahomet have
alike beheld the celebration, of the “Head of
the Year.” While Xenophon was retreating
with the immortal ten thousand; when Ca'shu
ivas conquering Gaul; while Peter tii'c Ilertnit
was “maddenirig mankidj'’ while Ttiitibrlane
was building his pyramid of a hundred thou
sand skulls, these people had their “sqlemn
feasts." And on dpivn—while revolutions
have swept a way all traces of once tloiirish-
ing empires; while tlie Jewish' natlrinality
has long since- perished, yet in the forms ql'
their religion.'they stilb exist. Though per
secuted; though tlieir race has been driven
from cnuutrv to country, tlieir goods and:
wealth made spoils for tlieif taiemies, yet
tlieir distinctive national characteristics have
lieen preserved. ! - . i'j

Another Bloody Tragedy.
A irlx KILLED Ills 'wife FOR PROVE;* «K-
But a few days has elapsed since we an
nounced one of the most horrible wife
murders ever recorded, and yet in that
short space, we are again called upon to
chronicle another of those thrilling trage
dies that make humanity shudder. In
order to state the facts plainly to our
readers, it is necessary to advert to tbe
early’ history and marriage of the parties to
this terrible affair. A young man named
James Garrett, of prepossessing appearance,
and about twenty-eight years of age was em
ployed by the government in the corels at
this place, and labored in this capacity dur
ing the last ‘winter. In hia association*,
he became acquainted with a young and
beautiful courtezan named Myra Severe,
and becoming enamored of her, married the
idol of his affections in due form of law,being
wholly cognizant of her previous career of
Jewdness. Tlie young man, no doubt, hoped
to reform the young girl; and to this end re
moved to Gallatin. After living unhappily,
as might be expected, for some months, the
young wife manifested a strong desire to re
visit tlie city, and prevailed upon her hus
band to bring her here, promising faithfully
to return with him at an appointed time.—
They came, and after a reasonable visit, Myra
had agreed to, meet her husband at the
bridge, crossing the river, and accompa
ny him home. Tlie fond, but foolish
hvrihand was on the spot at the hour desig
nated, but his unfaithful wife failed to ar
rive. Time passed, and still she lingered,
until the husband gave her up in despair.—
The fair but frail young woman had fallen in
to tlie embraces of her old friends, and vr»*
reveling in crime, until she became intoxicat
ed in her wild passion and excitement, and
entering, forgot the duties she owed to
her lawful husband. On the following
day, Garrett set out in search of hit wife,
Myra, anil found her in a house situ
ated in an alley to the reai'of the corner of
Summer and Jetlerson streets, near Ger
mantown. no had' learned all, and was
driven to desperation and' madness. De
begged her to go home with bun, but she re
fused. saying that il was her fixed purpose to
remain in the city with one x)f her former
friends. The infuriated husband tlr.'.t made
search for the object of his wife's affections,
iiu'endlng to kill him on first sight. Tn this he
failed, and tlien re* irted to thedi-sperawact of
murdering his wife. He went to thehoujeabout
1 o’clock yesterday afternoon, and drawing
liispislril, sbnt the frail young Wife six times.
The 11 rat shot grazed her chin, the second
inflicted a flesh wound in the abdoiniual re
i gioits,* ,1 ttie third'' enn-nst her right hand,
paaaingrtrpward through the. arm. the fonrtli
penetrated her right breast, the iil'ih pssaed
through her right lung, and. the sixth
through the left arm, entering her left
side arid penetrating the heart, producing in
stant'death; ‘ The Wounds were examined by
Dr. W. G. Scott. Garrett., attempted tn es
cape. but wasptmmed anil captured by two
, government employees, who brought him to
tlie city and delivered him do the authorities.
This ease is of such a character as will admit
of no comments' and we leave our readers to
form: their own conclusions. Garret' stated
to tho recorder after his arrest that he had no
objections tq being hung onthespot, and was
driven to that point, of desperation that
ttnowB 'no' consequences. He begged, how
ever, that the aflair would never come to hi*
mother's ears. The ease will be fully.inves
tigated. arid we will give the entire detail* of
the tragedy in St'iew days.—LovisvilU Jtrur-
