TENNESSEE ELECTIONS: On next Thursday week the election for Governor, Congressmen, and members of the Legislature comes on in Tennessee.—The eyes of the whole Union are turned upon the contest now going on in that State, the result of which is looked to, by all as calculated to have great weight in determining the prospects of the two great political parties of the Union. It affords us pleasure to assure our readers, that from every portion of that patriotic State, the prospect is gratifying and cheering. Tennessee is still free from the shackles of executive influence. The deputed Government candidate has failed to revolutionize the State. And Freemen will not be dictated to by an emisary of the Government.–A party zeal, a sycophantic subserviency which stops at nothing beyond which, the executive of the nation may desire it to proceed, will receive its reward in the condemnation of an insulted people.

In the event of this election, the whigs of Mississippi feel a deep interest, and it will be a source of proud gratification to our State to witness the defeat of that man who for party sake, insulted and disregarded her expressed will, depriving her of a voice in the councils of the nation, by her selected representatives. Every nerve was strained and is still straining, every exertion resorted to, and all will not do. Under the sacred name of democracy, “means most foul and unnatural” have been used to insure success.

“Black spirits and white
“Red spirits and grey
“Mingle mingle mingle.”

An abolition Editor from the North imported to teach Southern people Southern interests. Candidates with small prospects of success, appointed to office, under the General Government for the purpose of making room for others more likely to succeed. The Hungry expectant, the hireling office, all, all have been resorted to, and all will not do. The intelligence, the patriotism, the virtue of the people of Tennessee.

We extract from the Natchez Daily Courier the following account of the murder of Mr. John W. Moore , editor of Red River Whig.

AN EDITOR MURDERED: By our file of red river papers, we learn that on the morning of the 2d inst. John W. Moore, Esq. The polite and talented editor of the Red river Whig, was murdered near the bank of the Red river, opposite Alexandria, by an individual named Holstein. The latter had connected himself with some political difficulty in which Mr. Moore had happened to be engaged with the Red river Republican and had drawn upon himself a very severe notice from Mr. Moore of his conduct in the affair. The parties had afterwards met in the street, and no attack was made; but Holstein preferred not to give his opponent a chance for his life, and on the morning aforesaid, with one or two chosen friends, secreted himself in a place called the “Ferry house” opposite Alexandria, past which Mr. Moore came every morning, on his way from his residence to the town, and after telling him that “he must beg for his life,” &c. which Mr. Moore refused, he deliberately shot him with a large dueling pistol which he had in his belt, and which he used after his double barreled shot gun had snapped. Mr. Moore died of the wound, which was inflicted in the abdomen, same evening. Holstein, the murderer, has fled.


Our Townsman, Mr. George D. Young, has just completed a painting of the Destruction of Jerusalem by Titus, in the year 70, of the Christian era. The painting is taken from an engraving by Saunders and is tastefully and correctly executed upon canvass nine feet wide and fifteen feet long. Independent of the pleasure we experienced in looking upon the work as the production of one of our own citizens, it is well worthy of examination on account of the siege which it represents, at which, we are informed by Josephus, one million one hundred thousand souls perished, and ninety thousand were taken prisoners; and ...
