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 have terminated. 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 advantages. 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. Brother Strode has entered upon his agency for the endowment of the Literary Depart ment with success. Hail Hoad irou, &c. We are gratified to be able to inform our read ers that the Brunswick and Florida Railroad Com pany has contracted for sufficient Iron to complete their Road to the Alapaha.

The Road is pro gressing satisfactorily, aud in our next issue we ex pect to announce that the locomotive has sent its shrill whistle across that dark Jordan of the enter prise—the Satilla.— Brunswick Herald. 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. clcs. “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 scrutiuy. “I’m positive, Mr. Jordan, that you see something.” “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 it?” The old man laid down the slice upon his plate, and raising the- spectacles to his fore head, replied, with great deliberation, as fol lows: - •‘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. Squatter Sovereignty. NUMBER 1. 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. FUBLIUS The Congressional Flections. Columbia, July 31. Col. Brooks received 1,900 votes, and S6OO were toutribultd towards the payment ot his ex penses in the huinner- affair The vote for Col. Keitt was also large.—The Governor seal the certificates of their re-election to W ashington in advance. 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. Air-Tight, Self-Sealing Cans.

Read the following testi mony from a well known lady and gentleman of our own city : 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 FLEMING BROS. Pills--The Blood.

Obituary 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 Jesus. .

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. Soon with thee I’ll calmly rest Beneath the grassy sod, And meet theeon the loving breast And bosom of our God. Griffin Aug. Ist 1856. ’ C. W. K. Pike September Sales.

WM. H. McLENDON, Dep'ty Sh'ff. August 1, If 56 15 tds. Professor O. J. Wood’s Hair Restorative, for producing hair on Bald Heads, Ond restoring (b ay Hair to its Natural color. upHIS astonishing and unequalled preparation has never X failed to produce a growth on Bald Heads, when used according to the directions, and turn hair back to its orig. iual color, after having become grey, and reinstate it in all its original health, lustre, softness, and beauty. Removes atonceall scurf, and unpleasant itching, scrofula, erup tions and feverish heat from the scalp. It also prevents the hair from becoming unhealthy aud falling oflf, aud hence acts as a perfect Hair invigorator aud Tonic. A gentleman of Boston writes to his frieuds in New Bed ford thus: 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. July l, 1855. Yours&c. Gardiner, Maine, June 22,1854. Dear Sir.- I have used two bottles of Prof. Wood’s Hair Restorative, and can truly say, it is the greatest discovery of the age, for restoring and changing the hair.— Before using it, I wasas gray as a man of seventy.

Prof. Wood: My hair commenced falling off some three or four years since, and continued to do so, untill I became quite bald. 1 tried all the popular medicines of the day, but lo no effect. At last, 1 was induced to try your celebra ted Hair Restorative,aud am happy to say, it is doing won ders. 1 have now a fine growth of young hair, and cheer tully recommend its use to all similarly afflicted. A. C. WILLIAMS, 133 Second street. Rasin Mich., Aug. 2,1855. This is to certify, that one year ago, I was quite gray, and iny hair so thin upon the top of my head, that I feared its entire loss. In this condition, I applied for and obtain ed a bottle oi Prof. WoodVßestorative,’ and before I had used one quart bottle, the gray hairs had entirely disap peared and it had thickened up, so as to he full as usual and it assumed a glossy appearance, appearently more beautiful than everit was before. Ido therefore, cheerfully recom mend it to all those ladies who value a beautiful head of hair. 1 will aiso state that 1 uso it now, occasionally, for its healthy and beautifying effects. SARAH J. BROWN. CniAGO,May 1,1854. I have used Professor Wood’s Hair Restorative to decided advantage. It prevents the hair from coming out, gives it a gloss and softness very desirable. The few gray hairs I had, have entirely disappeared. Others of my family have used it, and concur with me in pronouncing it all it profess es to be. HENRY’ A. CLARK, Michigan Avenue.
