A Go >sl Letter.
To James Campbell,—
j Suit the order, dismissing me from the
! office of Deputy Postmaster at this phie ,
| was not unexpected. Being yourself .
| member of that intolerant sect, who have
j never been known to forgive opposition,
ior hesitate at any inquiry to punish those
j who might differ w t-h them, 1 should have
! been infatuated ind ed if I had expected
j you to retain me in office after I had voted
as my cousiciice dictated. My dismissal
j is only a proof of what I believed you ca-l
i jiable, and may serve to show the Ameri
i cun people what they have to expect if cv
j er your church should obia n the power
i for whit h it is strugliug.
I The office was indeed worth something l
to me, and so long as it could be retained
by an Honest and faithful discharge of its
j duties, 1 desired to retain it; but no office,
j however, lucrative would have charms for
me if it was to be held on condition oi
| truckling to a thing so mean as James
i Campbell, Postmaster General of the U. S
j An humble individual like me might suffer
no disgrace by surrenditig-his own opinions
in deference to a great man, such as AVasli
! iugtou or Jackson, because in such a case
! he might well plead that it was the part
jof patriotism to trust to the judgmen of
| one whom lie knew to be better and wiser
! than himself. But he must be low indeed
i who could plead such an excuse for follow
ing your leaders, or that ot the pretty ty
rant to whose corrupt bargain with the
| Cop , your master, you owe your present
| official position.
Tnauk God, that w th the office of which
you have deprived me your power over me
| has departed if it were otherwise, Ido
not doubt that you would apply the torch
as n addy as you now resort to the politi
| cal guillotine.
The mean and cowardly ar, always vin
; dictive amt merciless. Mr. Pierce came
' into powor under pledge to apply only the
Jefferson test, and never yet has that test
timl that alone been more earnestly insis
ted upon than by the Anti-Americans in
J the recent elections throughout the tSonth
! ern States. From every stump we heard
their orators declare that they never as-!
j ked whether aman was a Foreigner ora;
j Catholic, that all they wanted to know j
was, “Is he hone.-. 1. he faithful to the
• constitution.” XT it maybe true that
they have made very few inquires about:
, foreigners or catholics, but it is very cer
tain that you ave often asked, is lie an
American? and whenever the answ-er has I
! been in the affirmative, if lie had an ap- j
poiutmeut or was seeking one, his doom i
j To love our own blood—to profess an
attachment to the religion of Milton, of!
Knox,or of AVesley is a sin for which the
Catholic church lias no absolution.
From you no one expects, anything bet
ter—there never has been an hour when i
you possessed the humblest share of the
confidence of the country. •
But from your chief (Gen. Pierce)
somnlhiiig was hoped for, chiefly I suppose!
because no one knew anything about him.!
It is the nature of the human heart to
hope while hope is possible and although ;
there was little upon which to base it, we j
did tru t that Mr. Pierce would prove an !
honest man and a patriot.
The disappointment has been bitter,!
bat the lesson will not be lost.
It has put an end, I think, to the reign
o! small men, and hereafter the American !
people will be careful how they confer
nominations upon those whose only mer- l
it is tueir own obscurity.
For one sir, I was prepared to vote ]
any ticket a democratic convention might
I give, and if tl<e infamous system of pro
jscribing Native Americans An favor ol
Foreigners had not been adopted by the
present, Administration, l should, most
probably, have continued of that mind.
But when I saw them turning out even
watchmen al out the Capitol grounds for
Americanism, and made their tools, at tlffi
same time on every street corner declare
that the American party ought to be
damned for its intolerance and proscrip*
tion, indignation got the better of con
empt, and 1 determined to act no longer
with those w ho sought to cover their trea
sonable practices by such barefaced hy
pocrisy. I voted sir, the American tick
et, and as I tim u young man 1 hope to
live to cast many more such votes.
For that vote y on have turned me 'out
of office. Be it so. Ido not pretend that
is perquisites were ind fferent to me, for
1 am poor and needed them, i am hon
est and have discharged my duties faith
fully. An lamest man in your position
would have made no further inquiry* —yon
acted differently—but I have the consola
tion of knowing that in a short time your
The office has given you n momentary
consequence; the next election strips that
from around you and then yon will sink
again to the insignificance from which you
never ought to have been dragged.
1 am sir.

The Harmonious.”-— The New York

| “The Federal Union is a Pierce paper,

stump speaker, C. Sentce, the denouncer
of the Fugitive Slave Law, and advocate
of the nullilying “Personal Liberty bill,”

! New York Soft delegation. Os course,
j the Federal Union don,t like its vocation
jin attacking us and in giving fresh proofs
of tin t gratitude of which the Hard Deiu
jocraey of New York have already experi
enced no small amount from that quart r
jof the compass. It takes particular pains
To inform us that tlie recognition by the

when we saw the President, elected by

Tuesday night, lie is said to be very fend of

during their visit. It affords u< much pleasure |
to be able to entertain the Gov. so well whilst |
in the stronghold of Kjiow-Noilungism, and
the city he has so jnucli favored by his Execu'j
j tire prerogative.
The Sag-Nichts tell us the South should !
bo united—tliat her rights are about to he j
wrested from her and we should'stand up as one |
man. This is all right ; but to ask us to unite
upon the man and the party that have ste. red
us on to these breakers, is decidedly cool. AA'e
propose to unite, and to unite upon a man that
stepped in just time enough to save the Union
once, and is the only man, in our judgment,
who can do it now. The rights of the South
would be safe in his hands. All who are real
ly in earnest about the unity of the South had
better settle on Fillmore at once.
Some of our cotemporaries are favorable to
calling a Convention to ratify the Philadelphia
Nominations and select an Klectorial 'Ticket.
With the lights uow before us. we are of opin
ion that it would be better to defer sucli meet
ing until Mr. Fillmore returns and accepts the
nomination. 'That would be a most propitious
time to hold the Convention, and would, uo
doubt, afford ample time for our Electors to
“ wear themselves out ” in their country’s cause

REASOXABLE.-Last year when the Americans
carried New Hampshire by an overwhelming
majority, the Southern Sag Nicht Journals
said the • Granite State.” had been completely
abolitionized. Now that the Democracy have
gained 8,000 votes in that State they conclude
that there never was much freesoilism in New
Hampshire. It must be pleasant to have con
sciences sufficiently supple to relieve such base
i hypocracy and shameful duplicity.
! These 8 000 votes were oniy gained to the
Democracy by the effective efforts of tbe spoils
men to convince the people there that the Kun
[sas-Nebraska act was what Mr. Pierce said it
I was, the best froesoil measure that was ever
passed. This is just what wo think, and we'
venture the assertion now, that not one inch of
Slavery Territory will ever come into the Union

The Editorial fraternity in Montgomery have
been in quite a “breeze” lately, and from a
correspondence which Ims been published in the
papers, we infer that the “ smell of gun pow
der ” was in comtemplation. 'The difficulty
arose from a notice in the Mad that sundry
peculations had been comniittted By Uncle
Sam’s agents to the sad discomfiture of the
proprietors of the said paper. It is had enough
for Post-Office officials to stop the passage of
money under any circumstances, but to detain
the small amounts usually sent to newspaper
men, and then not even allow them to vent
their griefs by complaint through their col
umns, is adding insult to injury. By the way,
we had thought “our sufferings was becoming
intolerable,” and that we should “ cry out,” but.
we shall desist, and “bear the ills we have,”
rather than risk “ pitching into ” others “we
know not of.”
AAV presume the oldest inhabitant in our
country has never witnessed such a general de
struction of this valuable vegetable. The loss
to the country in the aggrevate is very heavy.

One day last week the Intelligencer announc
ed the arrival of 120 freight cars in this city
from the State Road, and pronounced it a
“ big ” day’s work. It certainly was, hut when
we consider the circumstances and understand
I the facts, it was not entitled to be called a
“bi gg ’’ day by no means. For several days
ipi :ms there had been “accidents” up the
Road which had disabled some of the Loco
motives. and the cars had accumulated to a
fearful number, and on that day all the "patch
work ” in the Shop that would hold steam at
all was brought into requisition to bring the
detained ears along the line down. AVe imagine
that while this was a big day’s work, those
immediately piece ling were rather slim. •* Si

more tact in turning misfortunes to account,
than the present managers of the State Road,

land seem to twit the Americans for supporting
: a man who once entertained such views. Now
!it is said to be a “ poor rule that wont work
both ways,” and we are equally surprised to
see the Sag Nichts opposing with such unspar
ing fury, a man who once spoke so favorably
of the pet object of patriortic Democracy.—
However, the same thing that has satisfied its
with Mr. Douelson, on this point, has dissatis
fied them. Hu does not now, nor do we object
to immigration to this country, of useful men,
but we do? object to their overweening de
sire to govern the country after they arrive.—
Hence, the only point of difference between Mr.
Douelson and the Sag nichts, is that he likes to
see them come, but objects to their rule; wheras,
they invite them to come over and take charge
of the government.
But while upon this subject, we beg leave to
call the attention of our Sag niclit brethern to
the views of Mr. Buchanan in 1815, oil for
eign influence. And we will go farther and
pledge ourselves now. that if old “Buck” wil
stick to his doctrine, and should be a condidute
for the Presidency, we will rejoice at his elec
tion. ’The paramount “object of patriartic de
sire” with us, is the relief of our country from

The Rail ttCatk
AVi give to the community the following
lett r respecting our great Railroad project,
fiom Mr. SaAutSl McAliley, Senator of the
South GtHrolinu Legislature from Chester Dis
trict. to a gentleman in this city. It will be
seen the sain project or the same ends, in part,
contemplated by the friends of' the Georgia
Air Line Railroad, were contemplated four
years ago, in South Carolina, but to strike a
line of Roads through to Washington, in
Wilkes County, instead of coming to this city.
That project was a great one. and so far as the
through travel, and the Great Southern Mail
was concerned, would have secured them. But
the difference to Georgia would have been, that
Northeastern Georgia, that beautiful section of
the State, now so destitute of Rail Road ac
commodations, and suffering shipwreck for the
want of such, would have still remained desti
tute. We cannot say whether this charter,
spoken of by Mr. McAliley, can be used to
connect with our Air Line Road or not, but be
this as it may. Mr. Me Adeev, and circumstan
ces assure us that there will he no difficulty in
getting such« charter in South Carolina as
will suit. That State has always shown great
liberality, in all Southern and mutual enterpri
ses of the South. The interested opposition,
in that State, if any. could come only from
the South Carolina Rail Road Company, but
even there the Company have a large interest,
in the construction of this line of Roads as
calculated to secure to them some additional
interests ; and they further see and know if the
Georgia Air Line Road should not be comple
ted. they are compelled to loose the Great
Southwestern and Northeastern through travel
by the Tennessee and Virginia Route, now pro
gressing to completion, or if not by that Route,
by the Columbia Charlotte and Virginia route,
which will at some day, not distant, have a di
rect connection with Augusta, so that there
will, in reality, be no opposition from the South
Carolina Rail Road Company, if indeed that
Company w t-e disposed to be governed by il
liberal motives. The truth is. it is becoming
more and more apparent, to all parties that
this Air Line Route is to become the main
trunk, and all important Railroad Route to
Georgia and South Carolina, which although
it must claim the great through mail, and
through travel to which we have referred, it is
to be the route to awaken the energies and en
terprise of the country, and give in other ways,
un equal amount of business that it may take
from any other roads. It is emphatically the
Route and the great enterprise of the day, for
Georgia and South Carolina, and even other
states, cities, and the country at large. AA’e
again ask all to look to the map of the country
to see the whole bearing and importance of this
line of Roads :
