Subdivided into seventy counties, this new Territory embraces within its limits the exclusive of that in store hv our Road. From Chattanooga down to Etowah, the de pots are all full to bursting. On the 9th, there were received at Calhoun 2,000 bushels, and the hands could not knock off their loading till 11 o’clock at night. Maj. Young, the Agent, of Calhoun, thinks that from his depot alone, he will ship 100,000 bushels during the season. To-day, firr full traius will be doivn, and we suppose each car will contain 130 sacks. The rush of this description of freight has been unprecedented, caused, as we learn, by the offers of New York Millers to give $1.25 for all wheat delivered at Depot by ;he 10th, and at Charleston and Savannah by the 15th of this month. We fear, in view of this stAto of things, that much liti one moiety of the very people for whose in terest they were battling would rejoice at their fall. The result of a struggle main tained for years under such disheartening circumstances is now liefore the world.— Another and another and another faithful Northern Dem >crat has been smitten down, never to rise again.

A Sample •t that “ Strang American Feeling.” We were told, a few days ago, that a pa per was circulating among our city subscri bers for the signatures of those who desired to cripple the Intelligencer by a withdrawal of their support. From what we heard of this portentious display of “Americanism," and the formidable length of that bit of pa per, we had prepared our minds for the worst and had made arrangements to re trench our expenses and thereby be better prepared for the shock. The suspense in which we were kept was cruel, for we were not allowed to know what the verdict in our case was to he, for three whole days, and besides we were debarred the American privilege of being present at our own trial, as well as a sight of the bill of indictment. Yesterday the “lifted thunder" fell and to-day we mourn the loss of three whole subscriptions to our “ valuable ” Daily and three more to that crack sheet, the Weekly Intelligencer. We make the erasures more in sorrow than in anger, for we judge our departed friends read mighty little of any thing that is safe for them to see but what they gathered from our labors. They lose more than we do by the operation, we are sure, for while their six subscriptions were were wi e and patriotic men, but they had ; in t | )e p r |, ic ipi e pact and resistiess: there might still he ' a great deal to them, we have, through the •vliat c mfessedly-d .es nor now exist, a par- . . & ty strong enough to maintain the Union, ' S e,,eros,t y of a g oud f«end m our need, the Constitution and the rights of all the I wade arrangements to go on with the pub- States. j lication of the Intelligencer.

The State is not bound for all time bv an act of the necessity of answering his speech by answering it himself; and when he at length sat down, it rested a matter of doubt in our minds what xvere his opinions on the subject of immigration, or whether he wag in favor of religious iibercy or intolerance. We haxe but one fault to find with Mr. Stone’s speech, and that is to ho attributed to a long and successful practice at the bar, and but a limited acquaintance with politi cal discussions. His speech was essentially that of a lawyer's—to ignore one portion J the testimony while ho elucidated the oth er—xvas the main effort of a discussion of forty-five minutes. The resolution oi the Philadelphia Platform in favor u religious liberty was heralded forth with ample com ments, whiie a resolution of the same Plat form, proscribing Catholics was suffered to lie uunotieed. Perhaps had the gentleman been allo.xed to finish his argument we xvould have heard something of it. The speech of Col. Howard xve honestly think completely established the unconsti- tutiunality, on the Catholic test, of the Know Nothing platform, and dissipated in to thin air the spocious pretext so often set up, that upon the same principle that a par- tizan in politics opposes our holding differ ent opinions on governmental policy, a Protestant may legally withold his vote from a Catholic. The speaker’s treatment, of this question did not rest here, but embraced a thorough pu ^jj ( . and complete vindication of the Catholics j ! against the imputed charge of owing civil agement and training of the young ladies in their collegiate course. The Commencement Exercises began on Thursday forenoon, and Wednesday tho young ladies finished reading their compo sitions, after which, the Degrees wore con ferred by Rev. Mr. Myers, and a very ap propriate address, delivered on “ Female Education.” by L. Q. C. Lamar, Esq., of his city. The address was decidedly a lite rary treat, eloquent and argumentative, strong, stirring and persuasive, and well worthy of the man. and of the occasion. We would here take occasion to speak more of his address, but as xve learn it xvill be placed before Mie public in pamphlet form, we will leave for others a more extended comment. It is due to the graduates to say, they ac quitted theuiselx’es with decided ability, and ! ped uu iku folks below as xve listened attentively at the reading of | over-ripe fruit.)

In short, a veteran citizen could scarcely distinguish “the. 1th" o! : 55 from “ the -4th of '54, except that he might have ft twinge or two more of rheumatism, while , the people had uniformed policemen and no c works in tho Park.

Neither the numbers of the French nor English who took part in the assault on the Redan and the Malakoff are given, hut the front of the whole _ attack was less than half a mile, and it is not at all probable that inore than 8,000 English could have taken part in it, out of which 3,700 is the smallest number given in any English paper as their loss alone, one paper estimating it from 4 to 5,000 * columns, to enforce his peculiar political opinions—neither usage nor justice make.- this demand proper.

Whatever he may have overstated or exag gerated in his notice of our unambitious effort the other night, we are sure his in tentions were of the purest. That refined and exquisitely cultured mind has not one drop of gall in it, and we think we know him well enough to say, if he is convinced tbat he has done Suiac injustice, he will feel more pain than he has occasioned. Bating the praise he awarded to us, we now do not remember anything in Caius’ article that the cause of truth demands should be blotted. preserved by the co-operation of a Northern party, any one who listened to the speech of Capt. Nelson must believe that the Dem ocratic party are alone capable of doing it. This is the must impregnable argument which has yet arrested the course of the Know Nothing party South, and in a nee- essarily short speech it was ably handled on this occasion. Mith Capt. Nelson's speech ended the discussion, and a more pleasant one xve have never listened to. CAIUS.
