Tine Theological Chair.
At the Annual Meeting of the Board of
Trustees of Union University, Ua., learning
that tiie acceptance of the Chair of Theology
by N. M. Crawford, of Ga., previously ap
pointed, was contingent upon the endowment
of the Chair with the sum of $25,000, indi
vidually bound themselves for the payment of
his salary, until the endowment was secured ;
so confident were the Trustees of the favorable
response of the Churches.
Upon being informed of thi*, bro. Crawford
accepted the Chair, and will enter upon the
discharge of his duties at the earliest day pos
sible—so soon as the unexpired term of his
Presidency at ths Mercer University shall
We regard this as one of the most valuable
acquisitions ever made to the talent of our
Mate, and we feel confident that the Churches
in Tennessee will duly appreciate it, since thro’
their future Ministry they are to reap all the
Brother Craw ford* will, in connection with
the other Professors, fill the Chair of Greek,
made vacant by the resignation of Professor
Shelton, who has accepted the charge of the
West Tennessee Institute, at Brownsville.
At the earnest solicitation of the Board of
Trustees, we accepted the agency to raise the
sum of $25,000, for the endowment of the
Chair of Theology ; and we now, and shall
until the sum is properly secured, appear be
fore you as the agent for the Theological en
dowment. We have no fear as to the result
—we would not fear to enter into a bond and
security for the sum, in behalf of the Baptists
of Tennessee. We think we know them—
know their ardent love and zeal for the honor
of their Masters cause in the Empire of the
West—know th.tt they feel, in some good de
gree, their responsibilities. We do not expect
to reckon the time we spend in raising this en
dowment, by months, uor weeks, nor even days,
but hours. We have already given to it loss
than two hour’s time, aud have secured more
than one quarter of it 1 We are confident
our brethren will not take us long from our
work, for we charge no wages fur our services;
it is a labor of love and pleasure for us. In
an early issue we will publish the names aud
amounts received, that cur brethren abroad
may see the spirit aud liberality of the Bap
tists of Murfreesboro and Huthcaford county.

A Ladlady’s Generosity.
One day, when butter was scarce and high,
Mrs. Wiggins hit upon an economical plan,
which was to spread with her own hands the
economical slices of bread for her borders—
merely to save trouble.
Air. Jordan came home late to tea the first
evening of this new dodge, and sitting down
in the presence of all other boatders, recieved
a nice slice from Mrs. Wiggins, who went
through the ceremonies of buttering it nicely
before his eyes.
Mr. Jordan recieved the bread, and, eyeing
it inquisitively, began to turn it from side to
side, and scrutinize it through his specta.
“What’s the matter with jour bread and
butter?” demanded Mrs. Wiggins.
‘'Nothing, nothing,” said Mr. Jordan, still
turning the piece over, and persisting in his
“I’m positive, Mr. Jordan, that you see
“No, no, no,” said Mr. Jordan.
‘‘Now,” said Mrs. Wiggins, her face be
coming flushed with excitement, “I waut my
boarders to fell me right out when their vit
tles doesn’t suit them. Mr. Jurdan what is
The old man laid down the slice upon his
plate, and raising the- spectacles to his fore
head, replied, with great deliberation, as fol
•‘Mrs. Wiggins, there’s nothing the matter
with the bread, I assure you, but Mrs. Wig
gins”—and here he glanced mischievously down
the long vista of attentive faces. “I have lived
in this world eight and forty years, and I find
myself this evening such a simpleton that 1
can’t tell which side of my bread i buttered!”
From the Georgia Telegraph.
Mr. Editor : We see and hear much objec
tion urged against Mr. Buchanan, because he
believes in the doctrine of “Squatter Sover
eignty,” or in other words, the right of the
people in the Territories, before forming their
Constitution preparatory to admission as a
State into the Union, to establish or .inhibit
slavery. Admitting that Mr. Buchanan holds
to the doctrine, as is alleged by the Know
Nothing press and and “they cannot
deny that Mr. Fillmore holds to the same, let
us see whether it is really so objectionable as
many would have us believe.
When the Colonies first took up arms against
the mother country, it was not, as many sup
pose, to establish her entire independence of
Great Britain, but to have an independent
Legislature to regulate in the main her domes
tic and internal concerns. This was the car
dinal principle of the Revolution in its incep
tion. How the revolution resulted all know ;
now deny to American citizens the right in the
Territories to pass laws regulating the various
private relations of husband and wife, parent
and child, and master and servant, aud you
deny to them the very principle for which our
fathers expended so much blood and treasure
To govern one’s self is the essence of freedom.
Deny him this great privilege, and what is he
but a degraded slave ? What has he to dis
tinguish him from the surfs of Russia ? It is
on this principle that all power emanates from
the people, that we have a right to govern
ourselves, that distinguishes us from all other
nations of the earth, that has made our nation
the purest., as it is the greatest on earth. But
say some, this right, we concede, they may ex
ercise m forming their Constitution preparato
ry to admission into the Union. Now by what
process is this right sanctioned at this stage of
their existence, and refused at all times before ?
Being the same people, owing the same alle
giance, if they can exercise this right at one
stage of their Territorial existence, why, in the
name of justice and common sense, can they
not exercise it at all times ? The rights which
the people of a Territory enjoy, and the bur
thens with which they are encumbered, remain
the same throughout their whole territorial or
infant State, subject only to be controlled by
themselves. I allude more particularly to all
those rights enjoyed and burthens imposed by
the passage of laws relating to ail the private
relations. It is uot denied but that the people
of Georgia, or of any other State, have the
power over the subject of master and servant,
ilow then does a citizen of Georgia, by going
to Kansas if you please, alienate this right ?
This right docs not cease merely because of
his removal. To say so, would be to set at
nought one of the fundamental principles of
our Government. The doctrine of Mr. Cal
houn is, that the Territories belong to the
States in common, the General Government
being merely their agent. Concede this, and
it does not conflict wiih the principle for which
I contend. The citizens of each and every
State may remove and settle in any Territory.
When they do this, when they leave friends aud
relatives aud settle in the wilderness, and com
mence felling the forest, rearing School Hou
ses and Churches, and thereby advancing civ
ilization, what authority on earth can justly
say to them, although we are a great way
from you, although you had a right to remove
and settle where you are, and although wc do
not know the institutions to which your nutur
al and artificial siiuatiou adapt you, still you
shall not pass such and such laws ? This
would be grossly unjust and arrant, presump
tion. If u Georgian or a Massachusetts man
has the power in his State to regulate the do
mestic relat.ons, the same power attaches to
his person in the Territories —no one will suf
fer by the recognition of this great principle.
Deny it, and you deny to the people the right
to govern themselves—you deny a principle
that has contributed more than any other to
making us the most powerful aud prosperous
people under heaven.
1 know the doctrine for which I contend is
unpopular in the South ; but it should not be
so. I fear that one reason of its unpopulari
ty is, that it is uot thoroughly understood It
is contended that if this power be conceded,
that those averse to slavery will settle in great
numbers in the Territories and pass a law in
hibiting slavery. This argument applies with
as much force to the doctrine tiiat the people
in forming their Constitution before admission
into the Union, have a right to say wnether or
uot they will have slavery, as to the doctrine
tor w hich I contend. The truth is,however,that
the extension of slavery will not depend upon
men’s notions of its humanity or inhumanity—
it depends upon causes over which we have no
control. Men are selfish beings’ and they will
own slaves wherever they can make them pro
fitable. i here is no man whose heart’ beats
with more devotion for southern Rights than
mine, aud no one who feels more sensibly the
wrongs that have been heaped upon us by
Freesoilism and Abolitionism ; but I caufne
ver believe that the extension of slavery de
pends either on the desire of men to extend,
or their desire to restrict it within its present
limits, but solely upon natural causes.

Instinct of Horses.— lt is asseited as a
fact, says the Cincinnati Times , that some of
the tiorses, in the Fire Department become
entirely reckless, and seem anxious to “be off,”
.the moment the fire bells commence ringing,
and though gentle at other times, are no sooner
in the traces cf an engine, than they dart off
at*the top of their speed. I hey seem to par
take of all the excitement of the firemen on
such occasions. An incident, resulting- rather
seriously to Mr. John VVilsun, a member of fire
company No. 10, exhibiting this instinct, oc
cuired yesterday afternoon. Mr. Wilson had
one of the horses of the company hitched in a
cart, and was driving leisurely along the street,
when the fire bells commenced ringing, The
horse immediately became excited, and whirl
ing around started for the engin house at full
speed. Mr. Wilson found it almost impossible
to manage him. The horse ran on until he
came to the engine, when in turning the corner
he upset the cart. Mr Wilson was tbrow-n
out, and-the wheel of the ourt passed over him
crushing his ribs.

M’Lam’s Celebrated Liver FllU
Are ranked among the most popular remedies of the day;
That it will cure liver complaint, sick headache, and dys
pepsia, is now beyond a doubt. Read the following testi
mony from a well known lady and gentleman of our own
New York, August 3, 1852.
Mr. and Mrs. Williams, No. 248, 7th Street, testify that
they have both been suffering with the liver complaint for
about five years, during which time they have spenta large
amount of maney, and tried many remedies, but to no pur
pose. Finally hearing of Dr. M’Lane’s Fills, they purchas
ed four boxes, which they took according to the directions
accompanying each box, and now pronounce themselves
perfectly cured of that distressing disease.
Persons will be careful to ask for DR. McLANE’S
CELEBRATED VERMlFUGE,manufactured by FLEMING
BRO., of Pittsburg, Pa. All other Vermifuges in compari.
son, are worthless. Dr. McLane’s genuine Vermifuge, also
his celebrated Liver Pills, can now be had at all respectable
Drug Stores. None genuine without the Signature of
Pills--The Blood. None can be
healthy unless this vital fluid be kept pure. This wonderful
medicine eradicates all noxious particles of matter, acting
directly on the liver, kidneys and bowels. None need be
sick if they use this remedy.

Died at his father’s residence, near Jackson, Butts county,
Ga., on the 24th of July, William Ball, after a painful
illness of twelve days, of typhoid pneumonia, in the 15th
year of his age. The deceased brings not only deep and
abiding sorrow upon a fond father and devoted sisters aud
brothers, but involves too, a heart-felt loss on all his li tie
friends. One who has heen familiar with his early life
takes mournful pleasure in recording this tribute of respect
Though born to ample fortune, and all those gifts which
too olten minister to self-interest and pride, he was puie in
morals, modest in manners, industrious in habit, and kind
and unselfish in spirit. A short time prior to his death, he
manifested a great desire that his friends should walk in
the path of virtue, peace and happiness. He called bis re.
latives, friends and servants to his bed-side, bidding them
farewell, and imploring them to meet him in heaven, and
then exclaiming, “my dear father, reach me up to heaven.”
Never was a more effecting scene witnessed in consequence
of his experience, than that of Willy Ball. Having fully
assured his friends of his future happiness, and their af
flicting loss his everlasting gain, little Willy fell asleep in

Sleep on sweet boy, and take your rest,
’Till Gabriel’s trump shall sound,
And then awake among the blest,
With life immortal crowned.
Sleep on dear boy, ’till earth sliull shake,
A t the arch angel’s Voice,
And then to bliss eternal wake,
And in thy God rejoice.
Sleep on dear boy, the hour draws nigh
When we shall meet once more,
To see our Saviour in the sky,
On Canaan’s happy shore.
Sleep on dear boy, I would not break
The chain which binds thee now,
Nor would my love one larrel take,
From thy resplendent brow.

Beneath the grassy sod,
And meet theeon the loving breast

hence acts as a perfect Hair invigorator aud Tonic.
A gentleman of Boston writes to his frieuds in New Bed
To your inquires I would reply, that I first commenced
using Prof. Wood’s Hair Restorative, my hair was almost
white and had been so for the last ten years, and it was
very thin on the top of my head, and very loose, and pulled
out freely; but I found before I had used all of the second
bottle, (which was eight weeks,) my hair was entirely
changed to its original color, (light brown) and is now free
from dandruff, and quite moist. I have bad my hair cut 5
or 6 times since the change, and have never seen anything
like white hair starting from the roots: aud it is now as
thick as it ever was, and does not come out at all. It has
prevailed in my case all that I could wish to ask.

THIS valuable machine, second only Io tiie invention of

change in the method of gathering cotton from the field
It will do the work of from three to five hands in picking
cotton from tlic stalk, and is evidently a labor-saving ina
cliine. Its benefit to the Planter is, Incalculable. It picks
the cotton clean arid fitee from trash, leaves it in excellent
condition for ginning—obviates the necessity of exposing
the hands to heaVy dews, rains and cold, and from the ra :
pidily of its Work, Will enable the Planter to prepare his
crop for market at ah early day, leaving hitn time for tbtj
improvement of bis land,’ houses, enclosures and general

It is light, weighing about 8 pounds, is suspended by r
