asked he, but his friend could not inform him
The door opened and in she went to her slate
and books, all uuconscious of the daguerreotype
that glimpse had left on the leeart of the grave
Russian Minister. 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. Surely v.e have reason to
rejoice that our delegation in the Legislature
have acliieved so much for East Tennessee, and
in the bright prospects so rapidly opening before
us. Knoxcille liegistcr.

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

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

there is no greater crime, in the eyes of the

actually wealthy, to aim at taking a leading
part in the government of the country. This

of his party though Canning, 1)3" marriage, was

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

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
.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.
