The next day, and the day following saw him taking the same walk, which subsided to a very slow step as he approached the building, and looked earnestly at every door and window. May Day was at hand, ar.d was to be celebrated as usual, in the school, by some simple festivities, and the choice of a Queen I from among the number, and this year the floral j royalty happened to fall cu Miss Harriet AVsl liams the very girl who had so instantly en throned herself in the admiration of theforeigner. i "Just before May Day, the Principal was surprised to receive a note from the Russian Envoy at Washington, expressing a great in terest in education, and begiring permission to be prcssent at the festival May Day, which it would give him particular pleasure, as a stranger to the customs of the country, to witness. Con sent, of course, was very graciously granted and the occasion was as charming as youth and flowers always make it. At the end of the term, Miss Harriet announced that she would not attend school any more. "What, not graduate? oh, why not' Are you going away?" But she shook her head, laughed, and in a few weeks was the wife of the Russian Minister. She has accompanied her husband once or twice to Russia, where she was very much admired, and known as the "American rose." Her face had regularity of feature, but was particularly distinguislied for exquisite coloring. Nothing could surpass the chestnut brown of her hair, the bright gray blue of her eyes, nor the hue of the lily and the rose so delicately blended in her complexion. Perhaps her figure had too much cm Ion point for perfect symmetry, but she moved with grace and dignity. Although there was a great disparity of years, and great difference in apiiearance and character, between herself and husband, it seems to have been a very happy union." Our Railroads. Letters were received this iAfii'Jiajrom ..General Wallace and Mr Hub- bart at a'suviller" bringing the gratifying in telligence that the House of Representatives had concurred in the amendment of the Senate, to the omnibus bill, which provides one A and red fwusand dollars for each railroad bridge neces sary to be built over the Tennessee, Holston and Clinch rivers. This together with the $10,000 per mile provided for the iron and equipments will give to the Kno.xville and Charleston road state bonds to the amount of $050,000 and in'one event $200,000 more; to the Knoxvillo and Kentucky road $700,000. This amount of bonds together with the premium thereon which the companies may realize, places the construction of the two roads beyond all con tingency uliatcrci.

J. F. TO-MPKINS, Sec'y. 1 Colonization hi Tennessee. A select committee of the Tenniesee Legisla ture to Whom Was referred the subject of the removal of free persons of color from that State, reported strongly in favor of a system of colo nization, and a bill designed to carry out their view? was subseoueutlv adopted bv the Legis lature. After noticing the great" increase of j tree blacks that has taken place in Teunessce within a few years, the committee says : The idea is entertained by many, that the negro race, owing to its natural inferiority, cau never become cajmble of governing themselves. Th question we .fe hall not undertake to decide, and It must uid its solution in the result of the iBjMWhlic of, Liberia. That rffOVcrtinieirf repesenietd tone now in aliig-b Fy flourishing and prosperous condition, consid-! ering the circumstances by which it has been surrounded, and the difficulties it has encoun tered. It has aided greatly in t lie suppession of that infamous traffic M hich our own govern ment was the first to declare piracy, and has also been the means of extending into the in terior of Africa some of the arts of civilized life. There is no other means of civilizing that vast continent, which contains one hundred and fif ty millions of human beings, and whose growing trade is attracting the attention of the commer cial world, than through the instrumentality of the Liberia n government. We doubt not the free negroes of this country will, in a few years, be so mueh dissatisfied with their condition in this country, and so well persuaded of the ad vantages resulting from their removal to Libe ria, that many, if not all of them will volunta rily seek homes iu that country so admirably adapted to their necessities and their condition, and where they may enjoy privileges which they can never hope to possess in the presence of a superior race. The wicked efforts of the abo litionists to induce them to remain in this coun try will, we douht not, prove unavailing when they become more acquainted with their own true interests, and better satisfied as to the ad vantages which Liberia holds out as inducements for their emigration thither. Maryland and Virginia ha ve made liberal appropriations from their State Treasurers, to provide the means for the transportation of such of their free blacks as might wish to remove, but as there are so many applications for appropriations from our State Treasury for more immediate and pressing wants, we do not think it advisable to recom mend any appropriation for any such purpose, at this time, though we are decidedly of the opinion that no more slaves ought to be eman cipated in this State, unless the means are pro vided by their owners for their transportation to Liberia. We believe it would be much bet ter for them, and much more conducive to the best iuterests of society lor them to remain iu slavery than to be liberated and permitted to remain iu this State ha viu(? the name of freedom without anv of its advantages. The report concludes as follows :" The committee do not wish to recommend an" harsh means for the removal of free negroes, nor do they think that anything ought to be done in the slightest degree inconsistent with humanity. A Ciritiors Placard. The following placard was at one time during the recent troubles in Rome, aetuallv posted about the streets of the Eternal Citv. Several dnvs elapsed ere its hidden meaning was penetrated by our whilsotne icquniutauce, (J luseppe .N avonc, chiet detective of the Roman police. The reader who is not quick at guessing riddles, will find the solution of t lie following, bv reading across from one inscription to the other : Death to I'ius Xinth Mazzini forever The Republic is the best government the vilest government is that of the Pope!

This was the great fault of Canning, in the eyes even of his party though Canning, 1)3" marriage, was comparatively well set off- and this is the reason wlnithe country gentlemen, the men of acres, so unwillingly submit to the leadership of Disraeli, whose principal income is his wife's jointure, (settled ou her by Mr AVyndham Lewis, her first husbaiui. which will die with her. Some property of his own there certainly is; for iu June, 1850, his wife purchased llughendcn Manor, in Buckinghamshire, (a lauded estate worth G00 a year,) aud made him a present of it.

The Apprehended Effect of lite War ircon i:niuJ-i Supplies of Corn .from the JS". V. Journal of Commerce. Some of the English papers are complaining of the mischievous effects which they allege to have been produced, as respects the supplies of corn in their granaries, by the delusive prospects of peace which the Government and its organs ot the press nave all along been encouraging, while it must have been known that there could be no reasonable expect atiou of any thing but war. Not only, it is cpntended, has the Gov ernment failed to take any precautions itself, na to securing a necessary provision of grain, but it has, by its fallacious representations, prc-veutcd private enterprise afttl commercial speculation tt'h5cl, the. exigencies of the country, may be i mo uuai uuiuiiuigc io itie ixoi'ie. Hie I French Government," it is observed, "saw dear th", from the beginning, tire difficulties of the case, and gave every possible encouragement to the importation of corn. Helgium did the same." The English Government, it is true, docs not usually interfere in these matters, in that way. Its general rule is that of non-interference with commercial operations even where the question of the nation's food is concerned upon the principle, and we deem it an incontro vertible one, that a Government may do most for commerce by leaving it alone; rememhering that, like a river, it never flows to .smoothly, and therefore never proceeds so prosperously, as when it follows its own course, without either aid or cheek. But it nevertheless did interfere; the com plainants insist to this extent : "it instructed its press to discountenance all apprehension of hostilities wishing it to be believed that I he peace of Europe would not be disturbed that commerce would continue to flow in its ordina ry channels and that what appeared to be im impending storm was nothing more than a pac ing cloud, that would soon disperse." So that the consequence has been an ttlter neglect, they go on to say, of any available provisions for the wants of the country, and that some of its most important sources of supply are being complete ly cut off. ""While France and the Nether lands," they say "have taken care to obtain it large supply of corn, England lias procured a most inadequate one; not more than one half of what she requires, and of what she would have possessed at the moment, if Ministers hud revealed all that they know about the Fusion dispute. -.We are inclined to think thtit then; is reason in this. A little more candor, a little more explicitness, not to say a little more dealing, would doubtless have eneourngt d ope rations iu the coru trade, which could not I tit have been beneficial to all parties. Hut now thev are suffering the evils of something 1 1 Jv e I'.tiiiino prices. Bread riots have already occuncd in England ; and Ireland is distressed beyond e;:- durance, by scarcity aud want. -We do wot. fogct thai,, this a-eaiiOu. of the year when oue great source of supply of coi n ( Great Britain is always closed, wc menu Baltic. But the apprehension, that, vcti when spring arrives, and that great outlet for tic Northern granaries is again open to British requirements, the operations of inevitable war will effectually shut it up from them, is cuttum an injurious influence. The other great .-oi:iccr the Bleak Sea, may be regarded as closed id ready b" such operations, (destn, its prim ; pal port, and the most important entrepot T the great bulk of the cereal produce of the iVi tile fields ot' Chirson and the Crimea, is too near the mouth of the Pruth aud the Danube to;.i low of exports being made to an enemy's coun try, and for the supply of the enenn's food, ev -u if the Black Sea were otherwise situated t!;:i;i it is. The most desperate and deadliest purt n the conflict may not improbably take plaee there. The first rencounter which England wiii have with Russia, is destined, most likeiv, to occur in that very sea, from which, be it re membered there is no way of escape but one. and that within range of probably an enemv's cannon. .But "it is an ill wind that blows nobody good." America is already deriving advantage from this state of things, while, at the mui'.o time, she is conferring substantial benefit upo;i England. But for American supplies, indeed, we know not how Euglaud could get her most pressing wants relieved. We have now before us a list of the imports of foreign grain, &c. into Liverpool during the two first weeks of the present year, just when England is beginning to feel nervous, if uot actually alarmed, upon the subject -of her scanty stores of food, and it is unusually large in fact, unprecedented arid chiefly, if not wholly, from the United States neither the Baltic nor the Mediterranean hav ing contributed a particle of it. The list com prises upwards of a million of bushels of corn, and more than a quarter of a million of bane's of flour, with large quantities of oats, peas ai.d beans in addition. Still the English market.-: for breadstuffs, we find, kept rising, and the Liv erpool papers of the day when the Arabia sail ed, report a further advance in wheat of fully four pence (English) a bushel there being "u strong attendance of country miller?, and the business done was very active, both for consump tion aud speculation." Thus while England may thank God that she has America to look to in her time of neeti that here we have it iu our power to siq p!v her people with food, and that we are able ami willing too, to take off, in return for much of it, the produce of that .people's industry let us' on our part, also be glad, that iu so "doing we' are also at the same time promoting our own iuterests, commercial and agricultural. Our present position is iu many respects an enviable oue. Far removed from the scene of conflitt, and without cause for interfering in it, wc have the opportunity, as we have the means of deriv ing advantages from a state of things which lo Europe may be a source of incalculable evils.
