and whereas H. L. Kinney pretends, in vir

be owner of the said territories, the people of
this Republic, in the exercise of its facult es,
The rights which the said Kinney pretends
to claim in and upon the said Territory, are
null and void, and of no effect, the same* being
the property of the Republic of Nicaragua;
and consequently every alienation made by
the said Kinney is also void.

American National Council.
We condense from our exchanges a report
of the more important proceedings of the
National American Council last week in ses
sion at Philadelphia. After disposing of the
contested seats from Louisauna by admitting
delegates representing both Catholic and
Protestant lodges as together they did not
outnumber the vote to which that Mate was
entitled, the Council proceeded tomoie impor
tant busines.s I his was on Wednesday.
Mr. Chauncey C. Burr, of New York,
moved lor the appointment of a Committee of
one from each State, to report business for
Mr. Brewster, of Mnsseclmsetts, submitted
the following as a substitute proposition :
Whereas,The Twelfth Section of the platform
adopted by the National Council in June,
1855, was neither proposed by the South nor
sanctioned by the North, therefore said Section
is hereby stricken out.
Mr. Ely, of Massachusetts, proposed to
add, and Mr. Brewster accepted, the words :
“That as regards the subject of Slavery,
we abide by the principles land provisions of
the Constitution of the United States, yielding
no more, and c aiming no less ”
A disorderly discussion followed, but finally
the previous questions was moved by Mr.
Matthews of California, and sustained by the
friends of the Fly and Brewster oroposition
against the I vvelft .section men. The South
howled,(we quote from the Tribune,) and
some of them complained of gagging, but the
vote was.brought on The ultra North wanted
to divide the question, so as to take the strik
ing out part first ; but the President ruled
tills out of order. The North then pressed
the \v ole—some of them only voting for it
in the assurance that they could divide it and
make the last clause stronger on the question
of final adoption. The substitution (striking
out Sect 12) was then carried by 104 yeas
to 65 nays. The New York Delegation di
vided about even. Otherwise it was nearly a
clean sectional vote —all ihe Free States
voting yea and the South nay.
On the announcement of the result, Mr.
Boteler of Virginia made a vigorous speech.
He was constrained to believe that American
ism is being fast raer ed into Abolitionism
Practically, the Americanism of.the North is
Abolition. I say of the American Party, I
watched by its cradle ; 1 now stand by its
grave It no longer exists in the land. The
elements of which it was composed arc dissol
ved. We will go home and take our prici
pies and make them the basis of the union
of the whole South She will presen an
unbroken front in defence of her rights.
The speech was received with great applause
by the South, and created intense feeling
throughout the Council, Ihe greatest confu
sion ensued, but finally Gov- Call of Flordia
was given the floor by common consent. He
spoke in a, simil r though milder strain than
Mr. Boteler. He said if the Twelfth Section
was suricken out, he should consider the
American party dead, dissolved, and should
go home. The Southern men all around
cheered him, and said “Yes, yes ” He closed,
however, invoking pe ice, and moving an
adjournment till to morrow, which was carried
at 9 12 p. m.
After adjourraent the Southern members
held a caucus at which they determined to go
out if the twelfth section was finally repealed,
and appointed a Committee to secure a hall
for their meeting.
The Council re onsidered the Ely and
Brewster proposition, by a vote of 9T to 87.
The Southern men had nomemus additions
from home, and the \ew York men nearly all
voted to reconsider.
The Washington Organ platform (the sub
stance of which we published last Friday/ was
then moved as a substitute for tne platform
adopted in June.

Great rejoicing followed from the Nationals;
and the New Yorkers, to whom the result is
mainly due, Were essentially jubilant, ‘cenes
ofterriable confusion followed. Crimination
and recrimination were rife, and it seemed as
if the assemblage would break up in a row. But
it survived it all, a great deal better than the

Western members pronounced the party dis
solved and dead, and said they could not car

The Germans and Slavery. —The New York
Tribune in answering a Mr. William Beschke, a
correspondent of the Washington National Era,
who contends that the German citizens of the Unit
ed States are not “virtual and practical upholders
of slavery,’’ says:
“That the great majority of the German resi
dents of this country, whether naturalized or not
do practically favor not merely the existence, but
the extension and diffusion of slavery, is a fact
which stands out so prominently and palpably that
we think no oue who possesses a 1 once intelligence
and candor can deny it.”

Miss Murray in tSe United States.
We have already given, says the Savannah Geor
gian, several extracts from the book of Miss Mur
ray, (late one of the Maids of Honor to Queen Vic
toria,) who recently made an extensive tour in the
United States. Wc subjoin the following ones :
“We paid a morning visit to Washington Irving.
He is a much younger looking man than I expect
ed to see ; nothing of the petted or thespoilt favor
ite in his simple, retiring manner ; he was all and
more than I expected, and I felt unalloyed pleasure
in such an introduction.
To-day I dined with the President, by the formal
invitation of a week. The party consisted ot
about thirty-two. I sat between Mr. Brodhead
and Mr. Ashley, two members of the Senate, who
have passed sometime in England. There were a
good manj 7 ladies, but more gentlemen. The Pres
ident and Mrs. Pierce sat opposite, on each side of
the table, and I was near the former. The dinner
was handsome, and well arranged in French fash
ion ; flowrs and fruit only cli the table, and one
dish at a time handed round. In the reception
room there were some splendid white camellias,
covered with flowers which I think are larger here
than any with us: great use is made of the fir, like
Lycopodium and the elegant Steevia, in the forma
tion of ornamental boquets, some of which were
placed at the disposal of the ladies. At 91 oclock
the party broke up, having met a G o’clock.
A MORMON DELEGATE TO CONGRESS.
A gentlemanly, respectable-looking old man with
a bald head. I did not inquire if he had twelve
wives ; but an amusing account has been given me
with regard to the domestic arrangements of that
strange people. It seems that when the first wife
wants help in the household, she petitions her hus
band to take another spouse —a good cook or a
dairy-woman, for instance, or a seamstress ; so one
wife is housekeeper, another has the cooking de
partment, a third manages the nursery, and so
forth ; and as there is small difficulty in getting
good servants in the United State:. this matrimo
nial plan insures a more permanent and better or
dered household than could be attained without it. i
I am informed that the domestic troubles of a wife
in the United States are such that, unless she re
sides in the slave countries, she thinks it far more
convenient to be first wife, with half a dozen sub
ordinate ones, than to be sole darling, with the dis
advantages of saucy servants and the discomforts
of bad dinners ; so that, in fact, Republicanism,
and an unnatural attempt at equality, have caused
a return of the terible evils of poligamy. What a
curious result. I hope this strange custom will not
spread over the Union!
I dined at the Secretary of State's with a large
number of diplomatic gentlemen and only four la
dies besides myself. The French minister Sat by
Mrs. Marcy, and I had Mr. Marey on one side and
the Spanish minister on the other. The dinner
could not be otherwise than agreeable. The Sec
retary is a remarkable frank, agreeable old man,
and I was not afraid to joke with him a little about
his republican aversion to court dresses. I found
out the whole secret afterwards. In his drawing
room there is an interesting picture, painted in the
time of Louts XIV.. of the King and Queen sitting
in their circle, while some gay ladies of the court
crown Benjamin Franklin with a wreath of laurel.
Franklin is uncontaminated by any attire more gay
than his Quaker-looking habiliments, (though it
seems he was occasionally seduced into a court
dress, for a velvet one belonging to him isstill pre
served.) and I guess the ladies around him were
not without a little sly triumph of their own on
the occasion that gave rise to the picture ; but it
is evident to me that the scene was not one of a
public reception, for no gentleman is present ex
cept the King. Secretary Marcy was (I think)
sentimentally led astray in his crusade against Eu
ropean finery by this picture. I don’t the least be
lieve (an accusation I have heard here) that his mo
tive was to curry with the American public,
who may imagine an ugly coat and republicanism
synonymous terms. He is a down-right honest
man, if ever I saw one ; end mith all his talents
and knowledge of the American world, upon the
subject of European dress he was much more like
ly to err from simplicity than design. My neigh
bor on the other side could ouly express himself in
French and Spanish, and as the Secretary confines
himself to plain English as well as plain coats, the
Spanish minister is frequently obliged to have re
course to an interpreter, which, in a delicate diplo
matic conference, lie thinks is incouvsnient.
Legislating under Difficulties.
The present Legislature is said to contain more
talent than is usually found in Georgia Legisla
tures, and before the session commenced, great ex
pectations were formed of the splendid results of
its labors. If these hopes and these expectations
are not realized, let it be remembered that the pre
sent Legislature lias been surrounded by many diffi
culties from the commencement of the session un
til the present time. Many groat and absorbing
local questions have divided the members into
cliques and combinations, so that a man who stood
| aloof from all these combinations and determined
to act only for the general good of the whole State,
presently found himself isolated or in a powerless
minority. For several years back, the legislation
of the State has been principally for the benefit of
the two extremities, whilst central Georgia
(that portion that pays a large proportion of the
taxes) has been almost entirely neglected. In the
conflict between upper and lower Georgia, the in
terests of Middle Georgia have been placed between
the upper and lower millstones, and been ground
to powder. The great interests of the State, such
as a Convention to amend the Constitution, Edu
cation, a revision of the law creating a Supreme
Court, &c.,has had to give way to the more pres
sing claims for new Banks, new Medical Scliools 5
Dew Rail Roads and new Counties. That portion
of the State that has been the principal beneficiary
of former legislation, is now the most urgent for
more favors, and fiom that other portion that has
for many years received comparatively nothing,
they would take away even that which she hath. —
If the citizens of Middle Georgia had been unprro
Stable servants, this conduct would have been
just j but so far from this, they have borne the
burden and heat of the day ;they have contributed
largely towards building up those sections of the
State that now give them the cold shoulder. We
believe we see strong indications that liberal ex
penditures will be made only when the money is
to be expended in favored localities, but the purse
strings of the State will be drawn tight when any
thing is asked for Middle Georgia. We make no
pretensions to prophetic vision, but we predict that
if the State Road is sold, before the last install
ment of the purchase money is paid, every dollar
of it will he appropriated for the benefit of these
localities that have paid little or nothing towards
building the Road, aud that section with whose
money principally the Road was built, will get
nothing. Such legislation is neither liberal nor
just ; but we sec no means of preventing it, unless
the people of Middle Georgia shall arouse them
selves from their lethargy, and demand their just
rights. Whilst other portions of the State have
been legislating for their local or personal benefit,
they have been trying to legislate for the whole
State, and by that means have been divided on dif
ferent measures, and their influence neutralized. —
If it should become necessary for Middle Georgia
to combine for her protection, she has the strength
und can force from other sections of the S*atc that
justice which she in vain asks from their liberali
ty. —Federal Union.
On such, subjects the Testimony of Woman should

would respectfully tender their services to the public. Dr.
E. besides being an experienced operator, is a graduate of
the Philadelphia College of Denial Suiserf, and brings
with him all the improvements in the practice of Dentistry.
The high testimonials and beautiful specimens of Dr. E.
show that he has spared neither time nor expense to arrive
The numerous operations of Dr. Clark, which continue
to give satisfaction,besides the many premiums awarded
him at our State Fairs- should offer some inducements to
those that are in need of his service.
Neither time nor expense shall be spared in performing
all operations in the most beautiful and durable manner.-
At the same time while they consider it better to pay a trifle
more to have teeth saved, than a trifle less to have them
ruined, their charges shall not be higher than the same
kind of operations would command at the North.
