MONDAY, MARCH 2-1, 1850, The llail lload Again! Railroads fire the controling agents of the day. They are the instruments by which nil pecuniary, all physidkl’interests of our country are guided dud controlled; they poscss the power of building up or demolishing cities, just os effectually as did despots possess that power in ancient times. Rivers. Oceans, and Lakes are forced to. yield to their sway. The city of •New Orleans with the father of Rivers for its chhntiel and highway, has been forced to build by it a parallel ’Railroad ‘to secure and retain to herself the tribute of commerce which Rail roads reaching from other cities are stealing from her. New Orleans is reaching the Ohio River by a Railroad for this reason. Boston and New York connected, or .nearly so, with the best inland navigation in the world are, long since, connected by Railroads. New York and Albany the same. Now York, Phil adelphia, Baltimore and Richmond have done the same. Wilmington and Charleston have followed suit, and abandoned their steamboats. Charleston and Savannah arc doing the same, and thus the controlling chain, the controlling .power of the Railroad encircles and intersects the land Ethwart and parallel to Rivers, Lakes and Canals. Not only so wherever the iron band is run and the whistle is heard, there congregate enterprise and wealth. Every oth er influence and every other advantage yield to their control. The sections where they traverse collects the industry, and the recruiting popula tion ; and sections of country without them are left at a stand-still, or in a retrograde condition. Georgia has many Railroads—she numbers her hundreds and almost her thousands of miles of the modern and powerful agents, and the sec tions which are traversed by them have been greatly increased in population and wealth.— But wliat is to he done in regard to this agency by those large and beautiful sections of the State ■-Which arc destitute? Shull they remain destitute and be suffered 'to sink deeper and deeper into comparative insignificance ? ‘(n'thall the people occupying them 'rise up and seize the Iron Horse by his smoking marie ami force him into their service—compel him to labor for thoir wealth and the-elevtitifin ms their section; as well us for others? Cod forbid that any section or r-n-y .people by their supineness or in difference should be deprived of his services and and power. 'Flic project for the Georgia Air Line ftail j road lias at each of its termini and at eve ,- y :niie along its line for twenty miles on either jde, interests deep and incalculable calling for its conJteuciibn. The region through which it 13 to pas', as well aJ its termini, lias, as wc have said and shown an interest which rises up, and is rising still higher from the competing influence of other lines ot Railroads which aside from its direct benefits to indiY’diiais forces its construction as a matter of seif-protection upon the country and the people, and alone, its | a matter of gratification to every lover of his [ entire country, it stands up before everyone as I a measure frouglit with more security and sub- i stantial benefit to his State, if possible, than any measure of the kind yet brought forward. Under such circumstances with the interest of every man and every acre of . land combined, it requires great faith,or infidelity, if you please, | to believe it cannot, and will be speedily under- j taken and speedily constructed. Good CoiiiiciL J The South by a wise m deration, that will sacrifice nothing for which it has a right to contend, whilst it seduously avoids unnecessary antagonism.to the prejudices or wis es ofthc North, has the power at the present session to strengthen immense ly the cause of the Union and sectional j'leaen.— lntl/imorc American. This the Louisville Journal, is pert inent reflection, We heartily endorse it. Upon the only question which threatens to disturb the tranquility of the Union, the South new presents an unbroken front. It is ftiiity. Let it see that the strength which Ahfe iudivisable unity assures is ex erted with tact and patriotic fOtbearance In the sectional controversy so darkly im pending, tlie South plants itself immova bly upon tiie existing legislation, and de | miiuds euly to be left alone. Its position is purely and exclusively a defensive one, ■ and it is quietly yet firmly resolved te | maintain it. Its attitude before the na ! tion and the world is bold, dignified and I manly. Wc would not have it change or i abate this attitude by a hair’s breadth. — I But beyond the most unflinching fidelity | to itself, there lies a wide margin of poli j cv, on which with a just conciliatory spir- I it’, it may hold the excited cohorts of the | North at parley, and chum away aggres sion before our citadel is approached. Wc hope that such a conciliatory spirit will oc?; eupy this margin ellectively. It is mad ness to bluster or exasperate. The times ! are too critical for this. The South rc j quires hut a masterly selfeontrol to convert the exigency into a national blessing. It i needs only a wise discretion to fortify its 1 jew rights impregnabiy, and with them, ! the existence of the Union itself. An an cient poet has said that no other protection ■ is wanting, provided one is under tbeguid | ance of prudence. It becomes the South J iri the present crisis, and in all future crisis, J to realize -the force of this saying. . ; —— V I Andrew J. Donklsox.—The Memphis . Eagle. If Enquirer concludes a long and able review of the political -career of the American nominee for the Vice-Presiden cy with the (oilwing extract from the will :of General Jackson It is suggestive alike of the confidence of the Old Hero in Ma jor Donelson, and of his own eminently American sentiments:: “I bequeath to my well beloved nephew, Andix w Jackson Donelson, -sou of Samuel Donelson, deceased, the elegafit sword presented to me by the State of Tennes i-sce, with the injunction —that he fail uot to use it when necessary for tlm support and protection of our glorious Union, and for the protection of the Constitutional rights of our beloved country, should they lie assailed by foreign enemies or domes tic traitors. This from the great change in ’my wordly affairs of late, is, with blessing, nil I can bequeath him, doing justice to those creditors to whom I am responsible. This bequeath is made as a momenta of the high reguarH, affection and esteem I bear for him as a high-min ded honest and honorable man.” • Lewis f ass on Roma ni-m. • • The Hon. Lewis Cass made a speech in the Senate of the United States in May 1854, and which tan nbw be found in the Congressional Globe, 33d Congress, Ist Session, page 081 to 090, whffrein he takes strong ground against Romanism. General Cuss, after giving the barbarous treatment of Protestants in Many Roman Catholic countries on this and the other side of the Atlantic, concludes as follows: “And does Archbishop Hughes believe that ail these abuses are going to contin ue untouched and unchanged? That they will much longer resist the mighty tide ot public opinion, which has already done so much in these our latter days, and is fa ted to do so much more? And arc the representatives of the American people to lay their hands on their mouths, and their mouths in the dust, to look on and sec the persecutions and oppressions to which their countrymen are exposed abroad, and uot even express their displeasure and their demands? And nil from an affection of national decorum, national squeamish ness, it should be called, which is so ten der to the presumption of others as to sacri fice our own true rights and honor.” Grain’.— ; l ,ooo,ooo bushels ol wheat are stored at Buffalo, 500,900 in Rochester 500,000 in Oswego, on the Illinois River there are 1,004,000 bushels, at other points on the Erie Canal 550,000 bushels; no fears of starvation. Hard Slndl Wit. Rev. Xieodemns, an aged expoun der of the Hard Shell faith, was recent in dicted upon two counts by the brethren of his church. The first was, that he had officiated at a Methodist meeting'; ard the second, that, in speaking of the fleetness of a certain old race horse, lie had said, “ScorcdmMe would fly,” which they thought was, to say tlit Icftst, a flagrant perversion of facts. Nicodcmus was triedgfound gaity, iinfl suspended. He appealed, prayed anew trial, and asked (o bo ♦seal'll in his own defence. This wasgranted, whereupon he said: “I confess to you, my breetlidfing that I did say old Hcoredouble would fly, but my ineunin’, accordin’ to the tex, was, that agreeable to natur, he must soon die in tii t flesh, and then under the wings of vultures tie would fly! And I did, my flock and hrcbthering, attend a Methodis meetnr; for the tex says, ‘feed my sheep.’ The Methodis, so called, invited me into their pulpit. I Went up, m3’ breethering. When thoy were done, they asked me dismiss the kougregaslmn. It being to dismiss and cut off the work of the Devil, my breethering; methonght it would be doing the Master’s service. So 1 dismiss ed them, my breethering. If it had been to continue Xieodemns would not have been thar, ray breethering!” Xieodemns was acquitted joyfully, and lie was bid by the “breethering” to go 1 forth again and “feed the sheep,” * sains Account of Mr The Frankfort ComnuAiwealth makes a brief but authentic reference to the lead ing events in the political life of Major Andrew Jackson Donelson, the American caniiidate for the Viee-I’residcney. Per haps, frail'the single evct , .p ! tic>n of Millard Fillmore, there is not in all the nation a man who has withstood such powerful in fluences in proving his truth and devotion to our glorious Union as Mr. Donelson. — He battled for the Union against the masses of his own party in Tennessee when such a course seemed to involve his politi cal ruin: Air. Donelson was a nephew of Gen. Jackson’s wife. lie was named for the General, and was brought up in his family. When Gen. Jackson became President in March, 1820, he made Mr. Donelson his private secreeary. In 1844-’5 Mr Donelson was minister to the republic of Texas, an I through him the negotiations and communications which resulted in the annexation ot Texas to the United States were carried on. While yet in Texas he was appointed by Presi dent Polk in 1545 mimsteV to Prussia —an office which he held until near the close of Polk’s administration. W hile Minister to Prussia, he was, by President Polk, in 1848, appointed a minister to the Federal Government of Germany, or German Con federation, and for a time he discharged the duties of both offices. In the begin ning of 1849 President Plok transferred him entirely to the mission to Germany.— Upon the incoming of Gen. Taylor’s ad ministration (March, 1849,) Air Lionel-; son, although a Democrat, was not imme diately superseded, but continued as min ister to Germany until the mission itself was abolished. In 1850-’sl, when the secessionists and and suniomsts of the South exhibited their; mad spirit and dangerous desi ns at the Nashville convention, Mr. Donelson head ed the Union and Compromise section of his party ; and by his aid and the aid of many other patriots, this dangerous politi cal horsey was effectually “crushed out in Tennessee. When Mr. Ritchie—the great Nestor of the Democratic party—retired from the editorship of the Washington Union, the party selected Mr. Donelson as his succes or. He discharged the duties of the posi tion ■ o the satisfaction of his party, until the secession and free soil apppoiutments of President Fierce made it impossible for him to render the administration a hearty siqlport. lie then retired to private life. When the American party arose, I e ree- j ognised in ft the ’means of rescuing his ! country from the dangers 0! foreignism and ! sectional broils which threatened it, and J he‘at once gave his heart and soul to the j good cause. He Inis already done frequent i and great service in behalf‘of its noble principles, and well deserves its honors It may be seen from this statement how j m*clflnith 'there is in the assertion, that j Air. Donelson is “distingv.ished c'nt)j from his distant relationship to Gen. Jackson.” [From the FeJernl Union.] Atis Passed by tlie General Assembly and tji- Itroved by Ihe Governor. 372 Ac act to authorize and require the poor school commissioners of the county of Warren to pay Ezra McCrary out oi the poor Yi-huol fund of said county the amount paid by him as j a Justice of the Deuce, out of his individual j funds, fur teaching poor children in said coun ty in the years 1837 and 1838. 373 An act for the relief of Henry Cox es tlie county of Washington. 374 An act for the relief of the representa tives and securities of Tax Collectors in cer tain cases, and for other purposes therein men tioned. 375 An act to make valid certain surveys, warrants mid grants, and to authorize certain grants to be issued. 875 An act to change the lines between cer tain counties therein named. 37-7 An cot to chliiige the residence Os Fred erick Merit, Sr., from thecounty of Cofiee to the county of Irwin, and to change several oth er county lines therein named. 378 An act to,give force and operation to judgment issuing from tlie Mayor’s Court of the city ol Darien, throughout the Ftate of Georgia, 379 An act to repeal an act defining the du ty of tlie Inferior Courts in relation to build ing bridges, so far as relates to Jackson coun- { ty. 380 An act for the relief of Henry.
