&im ts mtir ! COLUMBUS, GEORGIA. 1 SATURDAY JSVENING, JULY 9, 1853. s ! FOR GOVERNOR: HERSCHEL V. JOHNSON. ! FOR CONGRESS: A. H. COLQUITT. . - Congressional. Mr. David Clopton has consented to take the field against Capt. Abercrombie in the 2d District in Ala bama. Mr. Clopton is a gentleman of high character, superior attainments, and a good and true Southern Rights Democrat. He is one of the most popular men where he is known, we ever knew, and if he shall find time to make the acquaintance of the people of his Dis tri.-t hi tore the election, he will lun a fast, race. We thii khe never made an enemy in his life. Let not his oj poner.ts, however, mistake their man. He is a man ol firm purpose, of decided convictions, and of un tiring pi-rseverance. His popularity is the result of bland manners, unaffected modesty, and a disposition as gentle as a woman’s. W e venture that during his whole life he nevei turned want and poverty i way from his door w ithout relief— or looked upon suffering without cordial sympathy. His intellect is also worthy of his i heart. He to< k the first honor in College without an , effort, and found no difficulty in mastering the severest tusks. Indeed, his power of acquiring know ledge is as* ! top tailing. With such endowments, the early friends of Mr Clop ton predicted for him a brilliant tuture, in which we participated. While we doubted the policy of his run ning for Congress at this time, and were disposed to compliment Capt. Abercrombie with the votes of our party for his manly opposition to the Whig party in the j last Presidential election, we cannot refrain from giving i our old friend and class mate a hearty support. He is ; eminently worthy of our support, and if elected to tfle : high position to which he aspires, he will prove an abie and true representative, not only of his party, but of the South, and never flinch from his duty, no matter how great the peril which may be involved in a patriotic dis charge of it. A sign ol ihe Times. Straws show which way the wind blows. The j Columbus Enquirer failed to notice Mr. Toombs’ speech : in this city. It could not praise it.— it was sectional; | it dared not condemn it. From recent observation we have ascertained that it is no small job to repair an organ. It may be that this will account for the silence of the Enquirer. Its old pipes could not reach the ! gamut of the new tune it was required to play. For : two years past it has croaked of disunion until its pipes j have forgotten every other air, and no matter what | piece may be selected, they always run into “that same ; old tune.” The organ,Therefore, has lobe repaired, j new pipes inserted, new pieces practiced, and then we ! shall probably hear variations upon the favorite airs of ! the Southern Rights party, to wit: Northern aggres-| sion, corruptions of national parties, the imminent peril j of the South, resistance, secession, disunion. Our Military Guest*. The Georgia Citizen of the 9th inst.,says : “Our citizen J soldiers returned home on Wednesday delighted with! their trip, delighted with the generous hospitality of the j people of Columbus, and deeply impressed with the ne cessity imposed upon th*m of returning the compliment j paid them, at no distant day. What say you, gentle- | men, to one Grand Encampment, of all the volunteers of Georgia at our Fair Ground, next October or November ? I We believe our eitizenfe generally will respond, in alibe- j ral manner, to such a proposition.” BJ A Washington dispatch to tlie N. Y. Tribune says: “Atthe public reception, on Saturday, as the President was conversing with George S. Glazier, a New York Hunker, (Marshal in the Mayor’s office.) ; George W. Pomeroy, Appraiser at large, was spoken of as a Buffalo Platform man in IS4B, and as still on ‘ the planks ; whereupon the President remarked, with | unmistakeable emphasis : ‘No friend of my administra tion can stand, at the same time, on the Buffalo and the National Platforms;’ and pointing his linger toward the ! crowd, he added, in a stentorian voice: T will mark any appointee who attempts to stand on two platforms. Buffalo and Baltimore are antipodes .’ ” Alabama Bank Dividends. —During the week most of <>ur monied institutions have declared dividends as follows : Southern Bank of Alabama semi-annual dividend of five per cent, and extra dividend of five per cent. Alabama Life and Trust Company, eight per cent. Firemen's Insurance Company, fifteen per cent. City Insurance Company, ten dollars per share of SSO. Merchants’ Insurance Company, twelve per cent. Marine Dock and Mutuai Insurance Company, twen ty per cent. Fulton lusuranee Company, twenty-two pc-r cent. These dividends will be paid out during the coming wtek,by which means some 8350,000 will be thrown into eirculsition. —Mobile Tribune. Monroe County. —The Democrats of Monroe have nominated Col. Z. Harman for the Senate, and Messrs. Pinckard & Redding for the House. The Maine Liquor Law in Aew Hampshire. —The Legislature ot New Hampshire adjourned last Saturday. All tlie laws to regulate the sate of liquor were post poned. Cotton is being cultivated with success in Greece, and will probably be introduced in to Algeria. U“ The Rev. I)r. Wm. T. Hamilton arrived in Phil adelphia on the 26th ult., in the steamer City of Glas gow. Fatal Affray. —We learn that a man was killed about fifteen miles above .Teffersou, on Friday last, in a rencontre with some of the members of Robinson A Eldred’s Cireus company. We have not heard the name of the man killed, or any of the circumstances. [Southern Banner. WarrenUm and Macon Railroad. —A private letter from an intelligent gentleman of Augusta 6a\s—- The Charleston and Augusta people have decided to build a railroad from Warren on to Macon at once, and complete it in two h^ ; _la C oh A^° ad W ° U!<l b ” very l’°P ular Mr. Chappell’s Letter* Mr. A. H. Chafpell, a Union Democrat, has ad dressed a letter to the Journal <s• Messenger , in which he announces his purpose to adhere to the Democrat ic party. He had been suggested by a correspondent of that paper, over the signature of “Bibb,” as a candi date of the Conservative party for Congress, under the ; 1 assumption that the Union party had been reorganised, j | and that he as a Union man would “resume his proper position in it.” In aliusion to this supposed state of ; facts, Mr. Chappell very forcibly and truly remarks: j “The party now in the field (the Conservative) and to j which ‘Bibb’ evidently adheres, and with which he would i have me to act, does not even announce itself to the world : as the Union party. The omission to do so in the pro- j j ceedings of the late Gubernatorial Convention at Mill- j edgeville, is certainly a very significant circumstance. It ,■ plainly argues that the opinion of that Convention in re- ; gard to the fad of the re-organ ization of the Union par- i tv, is quite different from the opinion entertained by : ! ‘Bibb.’ i “But it is not the name, or the want of a name, of the 1 partv to which ‘Bibb’ alludes, that creates the insuper® able obstacle to my acting with it. I am a friend aim supporter of the present Democratic Administration of the General Government. I contributed by my vote to the bringing of that Administration into power. I have confidence in the great national party by which that Ad ministration was brought into power. Os course, I can- not consistently with rny views and convictions on nation® al politics, take position in the ranks of a party in Georgia, which is inevitably destined, as I think, to be an Oppo * sit ion party —a party antagonistic to Gen. Pierce’s Ad \ ministration, and to the National Democracy. The Nor* I them I >emocratie party has, in my opinion, from the days of Jefferson down to the present hour, been characterized in the main, by friendliness and justice to the South. They have stood by us in a thousand trials: they have fought, and either conquered or fallen for us in athusand hard political battles. Yes ! and they were,as a body, with us in that last and greatest battle of a!!, the battle upon the Com promise questions growing out of the acquisition of New Mexico and California. I cannot bring myself to turn rny i back on such a Northern party, and on an Administration which I concurred with it in electing, until it shall mani fest a spirit and a conduct signally discordant with the genera! tone of its past history and character. My devo tion to the South led me in 1844, when representing the State in Congress, to cast off all political connection with the Northern Whigs, because i saw and knew for my self, that as a mass, they were intensely leavened, thor oughly p-netrated with hostility to the South. From that period I have been led by the same devotion to the South, to advocate the policy of acting with and sustain ing the Northern Democratic party, because I saw and knew for snyse:?, that that party was as a body, thorough ly imbued with just feelings and a friendly bias towards the South, and acted habitually under the influence of such feelings. “Under these circumstances, and entertaining these convictions, it is of course impossible lor me to identify myself with any party in Georgia, under whose banner I woul 1 inevitably, as I believe, soon find myself in a posi | tion of alliance with the National Whig Party, and of It os- ! tility to that National Democratic Party, to which I have ! long been attached, which I have just helped to carry in- j to power, and in which I still have confidence, although j some things have transpired in appointments to office by j the President, which I could have wished had been other- j wise. “Nevertheless, being an optimist in politics, (if I may : borrow a phrase from that great statesman, Mr. Buchan- : an,) 1 shall continue to support Gen. Pierce’s Adminis- ! tration,and to act with the party by which it is supported, j until something shall occur, (which Heaven forbid) mak- i ing such a course no longer the best which a Southern mau can pursue. Your obedient servaut, A. U. CHAPPELL.” j [From the Atlanta Intelligencer.] A Trick of the Enemy. Ttu: crin Uiitcle tj- Scntincly jßvjju Bllcuu czudi j some other whig papers in the State, are adopting a rath- ; er contemptible trick to convict the Democratic party of ! a want of harmony in the support of J udge Johnson. The, ■ first tell their readers there is rank rebellion in the Demo- j cratic camp,against the Democratic nominee, and then, j with the most perfect coolness and assurance, by way of sub- ! stantiating their groundless assertions, bring forward copious j extracts from the editorial columns of the Rome Courier and : Constitutional Union. of Marietta, which papers, of course, j support Mr. Jenkins. Extracts from these papers arc I paraded before the people as “Democratic authority,” ! the whig editors republishing them, ingeniously n pre- ; sentitig the papers from which they are taken to he genu j i ine Democratic newspapers. Nothing is farther from the truth. The Constitutional. Union was but a short i time since the Marietta Helicon , a staunch whig paper, j j supported by Whig patronage. During the compromise j agitation it changed its name, without, as we have ever ‘ ’ learned, materially changing its principles. After the | Atlanta Convention of the ißth September, it approxi- j ! mated so near to Democracy as to support the ticket got | up in opposition to the decision of that convention and in j 1 opposition to the Fierce and King ticket which carried j ! the State in the Presidential Election. It may be answer ! ed that the present editor has at some time claimed to be a democrat, but coining as he did into the editorial eon , trol of a thorough-going whig paper, his teachings have ! been of a nature peculiarly acceptable to whigs, so much so that it would be exceedingly difficult to point out any i difference whatever between the teachings and political i alliances of the paper as it was, under the name of “Hel | icon,” and as it is and has been under the name of Con ! stitutional Union.” As to the other “Democratic authority ,” cited and relied upon by the croakers, it is just about as competent j a witness as the Marietta paper. The Rome paper also took occasion, during the compromise agitation, to change its name without changing its principles. It was former ! ly edited by no less orthodox a whig than Mr. Jesse Re neau, the present editor of the Atlanta Republican , and up to two or three weeks ago was under the editorial control of Mr. Knowles, a whig, at present one of the edi* I tors of the Mi lied Seville Recorder. The paper, al hough union whig, and bolting from the support of Gen. Scott, was too much whig, nevertheless, to go along with A. J. Miller and other whig worthies, into the support ol the Wofford ticket, and therefore stood aloof entirely during the presidential canvass, except eo far as it could give aid ! and comfort to the whigs, without declaring openly for ! either of the candidates. Both the Rome Courier and Marietta Union have standing at the head of their editorial columns the name ot I Charles J. Jenkins, the whig candidate, for Governor, ! and are about as reliable “democratic authority” as the Chronicle & Sentinel or Savannah Republican. These editors must be hard pushed for material to work upon, when they are obliged to stoop to su*'it paltry and disreputable deceptions to subserve their purposes.

Mr. Editors :—lt is understood that the Col ambus Gas Company will be ready to let on Gas from their superb woiks next week. These works have been erected at groat expense and constitute an advance step in the improved civilization of this city, which eve ry well-wisher of it, should rejoice at. Gas light is one of the admirable inventions that along with railways, electric telegraphs, ste3in navigation, and sun-paintings mark the genius and progressive civilization of the nineteenth century. Its cheapness, its extreme conven j ience, the total absence of trouble in the use, its safety I and ha brilliancy, have caused it to be regarded by phil ! osophy and utilitarianism, as one of the greatest and ! most wonderful discoveries of modern times. This in- | ; vention is how about to be made available to this city j and people.. A convenience and a luxury, which eight j j months agi, no one dreamed of enjoying in Coinuibus ; for many years to come, is now on the point of realiza ■ tion. The city of Columbus is a stockholder in this j I company, h vving very wisely subscribed its bonds at j I 25 years to the amount of SIO,OOO in aid of one of the j \ most useful and beautifying improvements that could be made in a city. But i regret to say, Mr. Editor, ; that the City Council has not followed up thissubserip | tion with tt c necessary action to mako the improvement i available to the city public. Within one week of a ! flew of gas through the principal streets of the city, it is ! almost incredible that the authorities have not taken \ ! measures to erect a. single lamp post, in ihe streets. I ! venture to affirm that the country may bo looked over 1 ! for a parallel ease—and that wherever gas works have j : been erected, the city authorities have always been the j ; first to seine upon their use for the public enlightenment. ! i Now, lam sure, there is not a man, woman or child, ; who has the misfortune to have to walk over <>uv streets at night, who will not cry out in the agony caused by the bruised toes, jarred frames and hard tumbles of the most uneven and abominable pavements in the world, “give us light,” “give us light!” The arguments are all for it, and none against it. The city is a large stockholder, that is one reason. Gas lamps are the best of Police protection ; and are absolutely necessary to t lie safe locomotion of pedestrians on a dark night. There is not a darker hole on this earth, or under it, than you will find from Mygatt’s corner to that of Gijnbt, Daniel & Cos., on Broad street, on a moonless and starless night. The shadows of the trees and awnings fall upon the pavement there, with n thickness and blackness that one can almost feel. Without doubt, j Mb. Editor, the city has been remiss in this matter —the ! ; public so regards it, and rightiy thinks that in return j for the many thousands of dollars it pays for the sup- ‘ j port of a city government, it is entitled at the very first ! | moment it c:m be obtained, to streets sc* lighted as to | render them safe for civilized men to walk ia, and not j dark holes only fitting as lurking places for Indians, j f midnight prowlers and thieves, “Givens light,” CITIZEN. | | The Whig Party. —ls the Whig party dead I ! or not ?— Boston Post.

Augusta, 29th June, 1853. Gentlemen : —I have received your communica tion of the 22d inst., informing me that a “Conven- j tion of the Conservative men of Georgia astern- ; hied in Mifiedgeville on that day, hcd selected me ; as their candidate for Governor, in the approaching canvass,* 5 and requesting mv acceptance of the nom ination. However reluctant I may have been to occupy that position, the unanimity of their selection anil my own entire sympathy with the spirit of iheir further deliberations, forbid even momentary hesita tion to acquiesce in their wishes I have read, with deep interest, the published pro cedings of that body, tnd am gratified to perceive 1 that their p .sition has been taken with direct refer ence to present rather than to past issues, and that ; they have spoken in a spirit of realty to country rather than to party. rights of the States and the Union of the States,” are paramount interests, and their preservation re quires perpetual vigilance. Our forefathers, in- j habiting distinct colonies, by a united struggle ! achieved their independence ; but the glorious con summation was, the investiture of each colony with : the nttribu'es es separate State Sovereignty.— Commensurate with their valor was the wisdon j which promptly and scorned that the best safe-guard, the surest guaranty, to each Suite of her newly ac quired freedom and sovereignty, was the Union of all the States. This union, to be effectual, must be invested with certain governmental functions.— Hence the delegation, by the States, of some of their political powers, with the express reservation of those not delegated, fidelity to the distribution thus male, is one of the highest duties of all Ame rican patriots. 8o far from being inconsistent with or antagonistic to each other, the sovereignty of the States and the Union of the States are mutual supports, and component parts of a structure which time is fast consecrating as the realization of man’s grandest political conception. In theory, their har mony is perfect ; in practice, their seeming conflict is the result of corrupt or desperate statesmanship. Fanatics, to promote particular ends, and Consolida tionists, to subvert a Constitution they never ap proved, will often seek to steal away from the States their reserved rights, and gradually build up an all eontrqliing central power. Their political anti podes, more ardent than discreet, more jealous of State sovereignty than careful of Federal Union, exasperated by such perfidious intrigues, are al ways too ready to proclaim Disunion and adventure, madly on untried experiments. It is the noble and responsible mission of conservative citizens, calm ly, yet vigilantly watching the progress of events, to thwart the insidious machinations of the former, j and crush the precipitate uprisings ot ihe latter.— In fulfillment of this mission, Georgia laid befo-e the country the exposition and resolutions adopted by the Convention of December, 1850: and surely all who gave them a sincere and hearty appro val then, will rejoice in their reaffirmance notv. The sympathy expressed by the convention for the oppressed of other climes is but a pulsation of the great American heart. It is a generous and eievated sentiment, the simple expression of which cheers the heart, and nerves the arm of freedom’s struggling votary every where. But, for the reason that it is generous and impulsive, severe restraint is requisite to confine it within the well defined limits of our international policy. Prominent among thy ancient land marks, which indicate those limits, is the interdiction of entangling alliances, and inter vention in foreign controversies. No close obs erver ofpaiisiuur even** can have overlooked recent efforts to stigmatize this truly American principle, as adap ted only to the weakness of our infancy, and unbe ‘ coming the vigor of our maturity. Innovat ion ; (misnamed progress) is doing much o lure us from the paths of peace, wherein the good and the wise 1 of othei days led the young Republic on to pros perity and to fume ; but no one of her many de ; parti!res is fraught with more unmitigated evil : : than this abominable heresy <u propagating by the sword, truths, we have heretofore been content to i teach by example. lam highly gratified, therefore, to find that upon these two cardinal points—the one j of domestic, the other of foreign policy—both re ! qu : ring ceaseless watchfulness, both of vast interest I at the present moment, the convention adhere to to the lessons taught by the founders of our gov ernment, and recognize aheir oracle, ‘The Fa ther of liis Country.” Every administration should be held to strict ac countability in the expenditure of public money, for t.wo sufficient reasons: Economy tends to lighten the burthens of government, always cheerfully borne by our patriotic people when reasonable, and it fosters republican simplicity and purity. Cheap ness and simplicity in every department are out ward, visible tokens, distinguishing republican from tegai sway. Their disappearance is an infalli ble symptom of degeneracy. The Federal Domain is a source of vast national wealth, stimulating cupidity,and inciting to inequii ; able sectional demands*. The disposition of the j public lands is therefore a subject of great magni tude, and present urgency. The Dew .States, born, reared and established in maturity upon them, as suming that propinquity gives preference, and con necting with their disposition “wild, reckless, and gigantic schemes of internal improvemei t,” are manifestly seeking to devote them to “the promo tion of particular interests, rather th -n the general benefit of those who bear the burthen of taxation.” It may not be doubted ihatthe elder .Slates, uniting in kind, but firm resistance to this pp.nt of mono poly. will succeed in awakening hi their younger sisters, a sense of justice, slumbering, but not ex tinct. The effort to adjust fairly, aad ithout com motion, tins growing controversy, would well be come their greater age, and more matronly charac teristics. But there are in ;t elements of strife, dangerous in the hands of demagogues—harmless under the control of conservative statesmen. Whilst the appointing power (involving the pa tronage of the Government) shuold not be unrea sonably inuiimciied, its exercise cannot, more than that of any r other pol iical power, be treed from re sponsibility, It removals tiom office fail upon op ponents of the ruling Administration, surely appoint me fils may serve to indicate ihe friends ot its adop ‘■ • ion. Let not those who boidiy avow 'removes to opinion’s sake, hope to escape :nie;euces drawn from ihe known opinions and principles < f * heir ap pointees to vacancies thus created. The prominence given by ihe Convention to the advancement of the “social, moral and intellectual interests” o( ;ne people of Georgia, commands my heayv approval. Here is opened before us afield of action in which a well regulated ambition may find ample incentive, and the* most towering intellect, abundant employment. If is with me, no new opin . ion, that we have all greatiy etred so chaining State interests to the ear of national politics, though per haps any attempt to break a connection, to which the public mind has become habituated, may appear Utopian. It ihey be absolutely inseparable, whilst, ns patriots, we may not be indifferent to the latter, wo may,at least,find in the iuii o‘ the tempest that j has recently swept over the fond, a fit interval ibrin c'eascd devoiiou to the former In accepting the nomination tendered me. 1 ran-j notlefraiathe expression of unfeigned regiet, that S au abler representative of the principles with v. hich we go before the people, had not been selected, I take courage, however, in the consciousness that ; they command my heart’s warm devotion, and in he reflection, ‘hat their devotee, wrestles with a strength not hi 9 own, With those of mv Fellow- Citizens, by whatever party designation heretofore known, or however, heretofore, differing upon ques. tions that were, who acknowledge these, principles 1 and are ready to do battle for their maintenance, I i cheerfully mingle, for weal, or for wo, my political’ | fortunes. 1 tender you personally, Gentlemen, my Scknowl ; edgments, for the kind and flattering terms in which you have communicated wiih me.

Gov. Lane has been nominated for Congress by the Mexicans of the Rio Abajo. Mr. Wright-man lias not been nominated, but was understood to be a candidate. It was possible that a Mexican might be nominated. Should there be no such nom ination it was believed that Gov. Lane would be elected. Business in the Territory continued dull. To tle Teachers of Alabama. The advantage to be derived lro/n mutual intercourse, counsel and discussion on the part of those engaged in the same pursuit, is obvious to every one. Hence such associations have been very generally organised and sus tained for religious, agricultural, mechanical, literary and scientific purposes, and have been the source of intelligent progress in all these departments. Nor have the advantages been less from such associa* tions for educational purposes, in increasing the zeal and efficiency of teachers, in elevating their professional standing, and in awakening a deeper and more general interest in the cause of education. Believing, therefore, that a Teachers’ Association for the State of Alabama, would be attended with signal benefit to our profession generally, and to the cause in which we arc* engaged, the undersigned teachers respect fully invite their fellow teachers of every grade through out the {State to meet at Auburn, on Monday , the 27 th day of July inst., lor the purpose of considering this question, and of organising such an association.
