TUESDAY, JUNE T The Telegraph. We learn from the Athens Banner, that there was a meeting of the Augusta, Atlan ta and Nashville Telegraph Company, some time since, at Athens, at which Wm. L. Mitchell, Esq., was elected President, and Geo. Young, W. P. Pbintup, C. E. Norton, A. Clark, E. W. Holland, A. D. Hammet and H. F. Phillips, Directors. At the re quest of the President, an executive board was also appointed consisting of J. II. New ton, H. Hull, jr. and Albon Chase. We sincerely trust that this new administration may succeed in resuscitating the sinking condition of the line. For the lost 12 months it has been of no conceivable service either to the business community or to thecompany, and during much the greater portion of this time it has not been in operation at all.— Let the line be completed between Augusta and Nashville and let skillful and reliable operators be placed at the different stations along the route, and there is little doubt but that the line may be made to yield a fair profit, particularly if the endeavors to remove the relay office of the Washington and N. O. Telegrali Company from Columbia to Augus ta, shall succeed. And we would here take occasion to give our hearty endorsement to the position of the Savannah aud Augusta press in regard to the advisability of the lo cation of the relay office and the "disfcribut- ing agency of the associated press in Au gusta. The latter place has, unquestionably, all the advantages in point of centrality and convenience, over either Charleston or Co lumbia, and if the convenience of the South ern press and the Southern business com munity, generally, is consulted, the location will be made at Augusta. The Virginia Election. The Richmond Enquirer of Friday morn ing publishes returns from 139 counties, which give Wise a majority of 10,159 over Flournoy. There are but six counties j et to hear from, which gave Gen. Pierce a majority of 90. Returns from the Congres sional Districts show the election of the entire Democratic Delegation. They are as fol lows: John S. Caskie, John S. Millson, Thos., II. Bayly, Chas., J. Faulkner, Poulus Powell, Wm. 0. Goode, Thos., S. Boeoch, II. A. Edmonson, John Letcher, Zedekiah Ividwell, Fayette McMullen, Wm. Smith. The Convention. The Democratic State Convention, for the nomination of a candidate for Governor, as sembles in Milledgeville to day. Its action is awaited with much more than the ordina ry interest felt on similar occasions, by all parties and political interests throughout the State, as it isthcsignal for thecommence- ment of what promises to be one of the most interesting and exciting political campaigns that Georgia has seen for many a day. The Democracy will be well represented from all parts of the State, and we have an abi ding confidence that the deliberations of the assembled delegates will be of such a char acter as to bring to the support of the nom inee even more than the wonted strength of the party, and ensure a glorious Democratic and anti- Know Nothing victory in October next. [Correspondence of the Atlanta Daily Intelligencer .J New York Affairs. New York, May 2‘J, 1855. To be sure our agricultural operations here in town arc on n small scale, hut in point of time they are in advance of our country cousins. Our inlying season is over, and the weather being highly propitious the entire crop is under cover. One morning last week, before the dews were ex haled, tho click of a whetstone upon a solitary scythe might have been heard by an early lounger in the Park, and before tho dews of the next eve ning fell diminutive liny ceoks dotted the chain- enclosed plats, and weary John Smith, taking an omnibus from his shop in Front street to his house in 25th, actually caught a smell like to the smell of the meadows of his infancy and wasycmindcil, like Mrs. Slcinton, of “nature and cows.’’ All this brushing up was merely preparatory (o a novelty—the review of some J,000 of the police by tho Mayor on Saturday last—a. thing never be fore done in this city. About 15,000 spectators were on the ground who testified a lively interest in tlie proceedings and lost no chance to exalt Mayor Wood by approving demonstrations of all sorts. He (the Mayor) inspected every man of the whole posse, taking the name and address •*f those who particularly pleased or disploascd him—made a speech sensible and to the point, urging each member to feel he occupied a responsi ble situation and < ( uito plainly intimatod that each man must do his duly, aud hotter than ail the rest, he gave medals to those who, during his adminis tration, have dono deserving acts. The idea of tho medal is his own and it is intended to form a sort of legion of honor by its hestowment. The police made a fine show ; much in contrast, 1 am of opinion, to what it would have been one year ago. Tho stars of tho old and new regime are of very different magnitude. instead of loafing slovens, dozing on the “shady side" in summer and toasting their shins in subterranean groggcr- ics iu winter, we have active vigilant men who, if they want the stimulus of pride, are not insensible to that of fear of the Mayor. I noticed, as the ranks filed past, rather more than a fair propor tion of Irish profiles, but so long as they keep awake on beat and get upon the ground within 15 minutes after a row is over, I will uphold them, and show no K. N. propensities. Apropos of foreigners the K. N’s. might find some strong arguments in the number of aliens who figure in the courts of justice. Of forty “ Cyprians ” who were arrested one evening recently upon the street, 37 were Irish and Eng lish and only 2 Americans, licccnt disclosures also show that the most dangerous of our rogues are from London, who, driven to a new field by the energy of the English police, have selected this as the most promising. But these gentry will find their plans of operation thwarted by a police sys tem which is now fast becoming to tiiis city what the French has been to Paris, an almost certain safeguard to life and property. The anti-prohibitionists arc skillfully perfecting their organizations to oppose the operation of the now law. On the 23d inst. the Liquor Dealers Society passed resolutions for ward organizations, and instructing their officers to employ counsel to defend any member charged with violating the law. Their means arc said to he ample and fight ing ; with the desperation of men whose pockets are in peril they will no doubt die hard. We alluded in a recent letter to the ridiculous practice of paying foreign singers such exhorbi- tant salaries as we are doing. Notwithstanding the tightness of tho times and the alleged want of patronage of the fine arts on this side the water, Madame LaGrange, the present Primn Donna of the Academy troupe, is securing $4,000 per month, equal to $18,000 per year ! The lesser lights get from 2j to 3J. thousand per month, making tho aggregate expenses of the Academy not less than $25,000 per month. And because we do not com placently fork over this “ tribute of acknowledge ment to deserving merit,” we must figure in the court and literary journnls of our trans-ni'. .tic neighbors as a nation of barbarians with no . .dti- vaied taste, no refinement, no love of the beauti ful. Well, bo it so. While wo educate even tho poorest of our citizens, and extend the blessings of our manifold inventions to these same natious whose highest products are sixpenny princes and an occasional artist, we can afford to laugh in our national sleeve at sucli fustian pomposity. Tho “ very nice business,” which our friend Burton calls it iu the Wandering Minstrel, which numerous vagabonds about the city aro in the hnbit of driving “in tho dog way,” consisting in stealing poodles, etc., and when a reward is of fered in tho morning papers, returning them “like an honest man,” being rather unprofitable just now, the same busy citizens, abhorring idleness, have taken to follow tho newspaper carriers at adventurers a profit of full cent per cent, to say nothing of the entire absence of risk in the in vestment, but if the line of business be closely followed wc fear that many a breakfast will prove indigestible from .the egg and coffee lacking the flavor of the morning news. Wc arc to have more markets, up-town markets, perhaps on a grand scale like those of the olden cities of Europe. We cannot boast of any very splendid markets here, although the supply of food is always equal to the demand, nor do the muni cipal relations respecting them keep in view with half care enough the health of the people. We hope soon to sec our city in this respect rival any in the world.

The following is the letter to the London Times, which called forth the bitter remarks of that Journal on American sympatny.— The authorship is ascribed by the Philadel phia Ledger to Mr. Cliilde, an American residend of Paris: To the editor of the London Times. Sir: Since the commencement of the war with Russia there has now and then ap peared in the English papers an expression of surprise, real or affected, that the Amer icans in their sympathies are not on your side. It has been attemped to be shown how by every calculation of self-interest they ought to set their faces against the Czar and pray for blessings on his enemies. They have been repeatedly told how poor and limited is their commerce with the barbarians of the North, and how rich and boundless is their intercourse with those who are fighting the battles of liberty and civilization. On the one hand, motives the most mercenary are presented to a people who if greedy of gain are lavish of expense, and on the other, the most Jesuitical war nings are uttered against the c'ontagion of a despotic Government, when the English themselves are in closest contack with an other Government which is not a whit less despotic either in theory or in practice. Without stopping to decide whether Amer- cans are more benevolently inclined to Rus sia than to those who, in spite of negative protestations, are evidently straining every nerve to humiliate her, it is not difficult to comprehend why such disposition should he not uncommon throughout the States.— Respectfully your obedient servant, Paris A “States” Man.

But leaving this matter aside, it must be admitted by all, who have any knowledge of the meaning of terms, that the individual who has fixed his residence in a country, is an inhabitant of that coun try, and if there be a community extending its influence over him, he is one of the people who composed that commu nity, and if on the other hand ours is a government of the people, as the preamble of our constitution and the very meaning of the term expressly declare, it then follows as an inevitable consequence, that resident foreigners—and naturalization, we contend, is nothing more then the proof of residence—are an integral part of our WEDNESDAY, JUNE 6. try, rests on other foundations, or it rests ! t> mes g reat€r than ouf owu - Probably our not at all: if on none, then arc we usurpers j territories may never be able to sustain a in the land, and any act by which we ex- j population so dense as any of these.

We notice in our Now Orleans exchanges a suggestion made by tho Bulletin, endorsed by the Picayune, and copied approvingly by many Southern papers, recommending a general system of non-intercourse with Massachusetts, in view of the late nullifica tion of the Fugitive Slave Law by the Leg islature of that State. The article alluded to urges Southern merchants, shippers and importers to hold public meetings, pledging themselves not to ship freight in Massachu setts vessels, or to buy any kind of manu factured articles from that State, or in any manner to pay money into the pockets of Massachusetts capitalists. In short, it is the old song of non-intercourse revived, to be effected through the bluster of indigna tion meetings and the voluntary pledges of individuals,— a course of proceeding utter ly powerless to accomplish the object of its design. The remedy is in no wise adapted to the disease. We may hold indignation in it. Any principle in contradiction of this, must, in its influence, be subversive of throwing out red hot stones. On the morn ing of the 7 th, thecrater at the very summit fired, as it were, two heavy cannonades ; and after sending forth lightning, flames and stones, broke up altogether.

S. but it has never attempted to thwart American agents in the performance of their duties. Nor has Russian Minister of For eign Affairs at any time ever formally and deliberately enunciated, as did Lord Claren don, an intention to undertake the super vision of matters on the other side of the At lantic, itwas not Russian, but englisli accred ited agents who, aided by French officials, have within a few years succeeded in baf fling the U. S. Government in disigns which if accomplished, would have benefitted the commerce of all nations. The Sandwich Islands, St. Domingo, and the State of Ecuador on the Pacific, bear witness to their mischievous and clever machinations. England, likewise, through her representative, tried to force upon the Central American Government of Guate mala a Belgian colonization treaty, execrat ed and repudiated by that Government, she herself being under bonds to the United Stales not to settle any of her own subjects in that quarter of tlie world. Then again the English Press, not to be slack in offending those whom it is bound by duty and interest to conciliate, never lets slip an opportunity for abusing and ridicul ing tlie Americans, not even when to do so it is necessary to confound a few outlawed men, aliens for the most part, with the whole nation. Whether it be tlie atrocious seizure of a harmless trading-ship by Cuban underlings or the untoward arrest of a ]y damage sustained, for which to claim The^writer,* after an absence of two days, j such compensation. Not only did no cause revisited, after night the vicinity of the i for dispute exist, between the American natives and the European people, prior to the latter establishing themselves in the country of the former, but the existence of each was almost unknown to the other. At no time have our fathers, or we after them, pretended to a title derived in this eruption, and thus describes what he saw : Where I walked on Sunday night was now a sea of fire.

Why should we not, then, rely on legislative power at home for our defence ?— If our Legislatures are made of the right at such times, men darted forward with : tbat tbe ear t b be longs to the human race in long poles taken trom the neighboring , ,rl - yards, and pulled out great masses of lava, in which they imbedded money for sale.— What struck me at first, and still strikes me as the most majestic feature in the whole scene, is the slow, silent, irresistable motion of that fiery flood. Active almighty power without an effort!^ Sweeping everything be fore it, overcoming every obstaclo, growing up against intervening walls or houses, aud devouring them bodily, and then marching on in the same silent, unrelenting, irresis tible manner as before. There was a spot beneath my feet where a fall of mason work had been built to break the violence uf the winter floods ; to this spot all eyes were di rected. The fiery river would fall over it in an hour: as yet it was distant from it seventy yards, perhaps. Gradually it rose in bight, and swelled out its vast propor tions, and then vast masses fell off and rolled forward; then it swelled again as fresh matter came pressing down behind, and so it broke, and on it rolled again and again, till it had arrived at the very edge. There was a general buz and murmur of voices. The royal family stood opposite to me, look ing on with intense anxiety. At last it j broke, not hurriedly, still with a certain ! show of majesty. At first a few small lumps fell down ; j general, and was designed to furnish it with subsistence ; if each nation had resolved i from the beginning, to appropriate to itself a vast country, that the people might live only by hunting, fishing, and wild fruits, our globe would not be sufficient to main tain one-tenth part of its present inhabi tants.” This principle based as it is upon the inherent rights of man to the occupancy of the earth, can never be effected by any question of civilization or barbarism, govern ment or no government. Our ancestors in beginning, found the North American In dians possessed of a more extensive ter ritory than their wants required; they properly came iu and occupied tbe sur plus, and without interfering with the welfare of others, subjected the earth to its natural design, the sustenance of man; but they in their turn, becoming masters of the soil, found themselves placed in a similar situation, the same causes of the right un der which they gained possession of the land of the New World, still existed with reference to others who might wish to come upon them, i. e., a vast territory with an then poured over a pure liquid of metal, like thick treacle, clinging sometimes mass ■ insufficient population. What better right to mass, from its glutinous character, and j had they, than had the original inhabit- b ^j Is . a ^| ants, to exclusively appropriate the entire i continent to themselves? If savage barba rians were unjustifiable indevotingto them- scorioe. Then on it moved once more in its silent, regular course, swelling up and spreading over the vinyards on either side, and now there was a rush for the road which traverses this lava-bed. Houses and the bridge border the road, the carriages were ordered off, and the bridge was being broken down—we were being cut off com pletely. We had therefore to retrace our steps and make a long circuit through the open country, and over walls, came round selves a needless amount of the earth’s sur face, so also, will an honest judgment an swer, would be civilized Christians; such a policy adopted by either, would result in the same ruinous consequences to the hu man races. In either case, in the words of Vattel, “ Our Globe might not be ^suffi- to the top of the bridge “run,’’said the sen- j c j en t to maintain one tenth part of itspres- tinels, “or you will be too late.” We | . ] ,. crossed the narrow parapet which was still 1 en in ia ^ au s The European colonists Plenipotentiary, the occasion is pounced j remaining, and soon afterwards down went! came i n on a vast an( I almost uninhabited upon with a rapidness which shows how ; the whole fabric.

Some people have fancied that there is another good cause for loving you less and the Russians more. They believe that be fore now had you and the French Emperor bad Russia on your hands Spain, like Tur key, would have become a stalking horse of tlie two first maritime powers of Europe for the prosecution of a Crimean expedition in the Western Hemisphere. Whatever credit may have been due to the surmise matters very little at present, with your impossible task before you, since it is pretty clear that no contrivance and no application of physi cal force can permanently deprive Russia of a predominance in the Black Sea, for which she is indebted to nature and circumslances that aro independent of the durable control of her enemies. Austria, you may be sure, will never draw a sword to destroy it, her own constitution and condition of existence being too dependent on Russian influence to encourage her in an act so bold. From the beginning, not thorough wantonness but weakness, she lias been playing fast and loose with the two Allies of the West, whose diplomatic agents, however, to do them just ice. knowing the ticklish and dangerous na ture of tlie party, adroitly humored her, as one does a nervous horse who may do as he is bid or free himself of the harness at a jump. Whatever may be the cause there is no denying that Austria has never gone heartily with you, and at your utmost need, rely upon it, she will be found wanting. If Russia were not sure of this, do you imag ine that she would dare to reject your con ditions of peace?—that she would be mad enough to resist a world in arms such as would he Austria, England, France and Tur key united in head, hand and heart? Allow me to repeat, in tlie only journal whose universal currency tempts one to ad dress it, that if there he any hostile senti ment in America towards the allies, apart from the justice or injustice of their cause, it is in a great measure owing to the intri- roapectable distance, in tboir rounds through the : gues of foreign agents and to the calumnies more retired streets, and raking after all that is } of a foreign press.

So grand and so destruc tive an eruption has not been known for many years, and even now we cannot tell how it will terminate. The mountain is literally seamed with lava, and many fear a violent explosion as the final scene of the tragedy. Mr. Ericcson, the “caloric” engine in-1 venter, is out in a long letter denying the truth of the report that he has abandoned liis invention as impracticable. He says : “The late British Association in England discussed the matter at length, the inferiori ty of steam as a moter being fully establish ed.” It is a curious commentary on the j coming populated, and this territory, under faith that Mr. Ericcson has in his invention ] thefostering careof the republic, wouldsoon- that his caloric ship has had the air heaters | er become the cultivated honje of man _ a reason ridiculously absurd had we confined into a nation, or receive them into the folds of their own : they did the latter, and the naturalization law was an act not less of wisdom than justice. However lost sight of amid the increasing grandeurs of a great empire, the principle which we have endeav ored to explain lias been tacitly admitted, and acted upon during every stage of our government. In that constant acquisition of territory, which has marked our course through its whole progress, we have given it as a sufficient reason for thus extending our boundaries, that America was fast be- converted into steam boilers.

She was from the town of Mon- son, in this State, where she was probably a pauper. Iler cries were piteous, and her reluctance to be sent away was of the most extreme character. “She went, hut not alone”—a little child a few weeks old, a na tive of Massachusetts, has been sent with her into the horrors of poverty, a doom worse than slavery, and not one interposing native American voice was raised to prevent it. Several other paupers were sent back in the vessel. Literally, yet we hope not irreverently, man we say “the foxes have holes, the birds of the air have nests, but the son of man hath no where to lay his head.” We are aware that it will be objected, to what we have hitherto said on this subject; that the policy of the Know Nothing party is not to prevent emigration, but by a repeal of the naturalization laws, to exclude for eigners from a participation in the govern ment. Their acts disprove such assertions ; for leaving entirely out of view the action of the Massachusetts Legislature, by which, under a specious law against paupers, infe rior magistrates are armed with extraordi nary power to return, from whence they came, emigrants who land upon their shores, the general tone of the press, and the indi vidual action of many who compose the party, display a rancorous and malignant hatred against the entire foreign popula tion, which far from contenting itself with excluding them from the government, would carry the spirit of persecution into ail the social relations of life. The effect of their policy—nor do they scruple to declare such to be their intent—is to discourage and im pede emigration to our shores; and their in fluence has, in a great measure, already ef fected their object; for not only has emigra tion almost entirely ceased, but thousands, who were already here, disgusted an<^ hor rified, have returned, preferring the politi cal oppression of a tyranical government to actual social wrongs, though perpetrated under the standard of a Republic. What can he the difference between two acts, the effects of which are the same, with the only exception that one is declared and the other obvious ? The policy of the Know Nothing party as effectually excludes emigration, as would any act passed with that direct de sign. If foreigners have a right to settle in this country, as we believe, and have en deavored to prove they have, any act which impedes the free exercise of that right, is in violation of it. One other view of this subject—Naturali zation—we contend, is necessary to the per fection of the right of residence in a foreign country. Since the abolition of villanage, a system under which man was regarded rather as a part of the soil upon which he was born, than an intellectual being en dowed with social rights, tbe principle of expatriation has been gradually developing itself; it remained, however, for the Ameri can people to recognize it in its fullest and most beneficial extent. Under the opera tion this law—and a more correct one civi lization never introduced—man becomes a part—not of the government under which he was born—but of that under which he lives. This was but reverting to the prin- ored to establish : the right of the man in the government.

Very Respectfully, &e., Pierre Soule. itated by others who may take part in the discussion, whether for or against the new party. We would express the hope in this con nection, that the American party will wage no war against Mr. Stephens, nor oppose his re election to Congress. Neither Geor gia nor the South can offord to lose the ser vices of such men at this time. It requires no ordinary sagacity to foresee the mani fold dangers now preparing for the Union and the South, or to appreciate the neces sity of bringing into tlie public service all the intellect, and patriotism, and curage, at our command. Tis true Mr. Stephens has dealt the party a heavy blow ; but let that go : if the party is as strong as it is repre sented to be, it would require several such blows to fell it to the ground. Besides, as between himself and the party, there is no reason to believe, liis letter has damaged the writer more than those at whom it was aimed “little niggers.” Barnum’s motto is that of Horace—“Ilic niger est, hunc caveto!” [For the Atlanta Daily Intelligencer.] Tlie Fourth of July!

That the reader may not suspect us of being influenced by old Wihg attachments, we desire to express the hope, at the same time and for the reasons that no opposition will be made to the election of Mr. Cobb.— The welfare, not of Georgia alone, nor of the South, but of the whole Union, impera tively demand the return of these men to Congress. Indeed, we have never known a period when the country was threatened with greater dangers than it is at this time. The wild and rampant fanaticism of tbe North, the civil war in Kansas, and the question of the admission of slave States in the Union, will lead to an agitation at no distant day, the like of which lias never been witnessed in this country.
