The Victory of Mrs. Gaines
In view of the celebrated case which
was recently decided in favor of Mrs.
Gaines, by a full bench of the Supreme
Court of the United States, the New
York Times furnishes a brief review of
its material facts, which will no doubt in
terest our readers at this time. Daniel
Clark, who was one of the early settlers
in the colony of Louisiana, was a very
remarkable person. His sagacity, pru
dence and business tact soon placed him
at the head of its monetary world, while
his beauty of person, popular character,
and agreeable manners afforded him a
similar position in the social circle. In .
1802 lie became acquainted in Philadel
phia with a lady of extraordinary person
al beauty, named Zulime Carriere. She
was born' in the old French colony of
Biloxi, and her parents were emigrants.
from Prdvidence. When Clark first met
her, she had been living in wedlock with
a swindler named Jerome De Grange,
who, having dazzled her with a glittering
coronet, married her, and then disclosed
the astoigtding facts that he was a confec
tianei and, a bigamist. Zalime appealed
for protection to Clark, who, being warm
hearted and chivalrous, at once espoused
her cause, and after becoming convinced
that De Grange had another wife living,
The marriage was kept secret, and in
1806, Myra, now Mrs. Gaines, was born.
Being naturally desirous of having her
connection with Clark a publicly acknow
ledged one, Zulime went to New Orleans
to obtain legal proofs of her first husband's
rascality. While she was gone, Clark,
who had grown into an influential politi
cian became enamored of Miss Caton,
a grand daughter of Charles Carroll, with
whom he had contracted an engagement,
though when reports were brought to
Miss Caton, alleging her lover's marriage
with Zulime, she at once insisted upon a
release from the engagement, and she sub
sequently became the Marchioness of
Wellesley. In the meantime Zulime had
returned to Philadelphia and sought to
obtain proofs of her marriage with Clark
who had, with singular treachery, destroy
ed all that he could discover. Finding
herself helplesi, in a strange country,
and with a child dependant upon her,
oho was wholly at a loss what to do, and
in her destitution, driven almost to de- 1
apair, she accepted the hand of Dr. Gar
dette who, with kindness and generosity,
united his fortune with hers. Clark, in
the meantime, had become penitent, but
on hastening to find his former love; as
certained that she was the wife of another.
He took the child, Myra, and placed her
under the care of a friend, and had her
most liberally educated. Zulime lived
for a long time after that, attained the age
of seventy-eight years, and died at New
Orleans but a few years since. Clark,
whose business talent was proverbial,
amassed an immense fortune in Louisana,
Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland, which
he bequeathed by will, in 1813, to his
mother, Mary Clark, naming Beverly
Chew and Richard Relf, bankers of New
Orleans ) as executors. Charges have
been preferred against the executors of
bad faith and mismanagement : but how
ever that may be, Myra—then Mrs.
Whitney—having discovered at maturity
that her mother had been the wife of the
deceased millionaire, with an impulao of
honorable affection for which she cannot
be too highly praised, determined to as
sert her right as the legitimate child and
consequent heiress to the entire property.
That site met with opposition and with
obstacles of all sorts may well be imagin
ed, bat she battled for her mother't hon
or, and evinced the most commendable
spirit and perseverence in spite of most
fearful odds. Her husband died, but she
remarried, and in so doing enlisted a
a powerful auxiliary in the person of Gen,
Gaines, who believed in her legitimacy,
and aided her with all his might. It would
be wearisome merely to index the various
legal struggles, the attempted social os
tracism, the treaoheries, the sorrows,
the hopes and fears, experioncd by Mrs.
Gaines, in this work of her lifetime.
She sued in numerous courts, and with
varied success, until her fortune was gone,.
her friends convinced of the uselessness
of further trial, and all but her indomita
ble spirit fled. She still struggled on,
and, as a last resort, brought the case in
its amplitude and its labyrinths of legal
technicalities to the Supreme Court of the
land. There after a long and patient
hearing, she has obtained her victory.
The Court has unanimously decided that
Myra Clark Gaines is the only legitimate
child of Daniel Clark, and that, as such,
she is entitled to all the property left by
him. Nor are the years and energies of
the courageous woman too far spent to
prevent her enjoyment of her vast wealth.
Mrs. Gaines, though now in her fifty
fifth year, is represented as being an
agreeable specimen of what old people de
light in calling ladies of the old school.
She is in good health, and possesses an
abundant flow of animal spirits, which
have buoyed her up for over thirty years
under circumstances of an unusually try
A. J. DONELSON ON THE EXISTING
CRlSlS.—Andrew Jackson Donelson, can
didate for Vice-President on the American
ticket for 1856, was addressed a few days
since by Gen. Foote in a letter inquiring
as to his political views. In his reply
Mr. Donelson says :
My plan of action for the border States is to
meet in council at Frankfort, or any other cen
tral point, by the instrumentality of delegates,
who will represent the wishes of the I people,
whose duty it will be, after due consultation,
to unite upon some measure which will secure
their rights, and that this measure shall be
submitted in kindness and good feeling to our
brethren of the other States, including those
that have seceded ; and that it shall be made
a part of the constitution, as an amendment,
if it be accepted by them. If this effort should
fail, and not be accepted by our Northern
friends, after they have had a reasonable time
to:examine its provisions, then there is no other
alternative for the border States but to call a
general convention of all the Southern States,
for the purpose of forming such a federal gov
ernment as may be - deemed necessary to pro
mote their happiness, prosperity and independ
ence, as a separate confederacy.
TROUB I,E IN THE SOUTHERN CONFEDER
AOY.—The Jackson Mississippian, the
leading Secession paper in Mississippi, de
nounces the Convention at Montgomery
for transacting its business in secret ses
sion. It insists that the Constitution
must be submitted to the people. The
following, considering the source from
which it emanates, is a very significant
There is no way of evading the premises
we b aye assumed ; hence, the conclusion at
which we have arrived is unavoidable, viz :
That the Constitution for the permanent Govern
ment, before Mississippi becomes a party to the
compact, must be submitted directly to a vote
of the people of the State. If it is not done,
the question of the right of the people to form
their own Government may require practical
solution before the new order is fully establish
ed. They will not hold themselves bound by
a Government which they had no hand in ere
hag. It is evident there will be trouble, if the
Montgomery Constitution should not be sub
mitted to the people.
CONGRESSMEN YET TO BE ELECTED.-
The States which are yet to choose Repre
sentatives, and their times for election,
are as follows :
Connectiout ...April 1 North Carolina . Aug. 8
Rhode Island.. April 3 California Sept. 2
Virginia May 23 Maryland Nov. 6
Tennessee Aug. 1 Kansas
Kentucky..... Aug. 5
Only two of the seceded States have
chosen their Representatives to the next
House—South Carolina and Florida.—
The others would have chosen in August,
September and October—possibly may do
so yet. The members already elected
stand thus :
Republicans 102 I Democrats 64
Of those to be elected, the Republicans
will probably have seven.
GEORGIA PAYS ITS OWN PENSIONS AND
INDORSES Twiaas.—The Georgia State
Convention has passed a 'resolution pro
viding for the annual payment to pension
ers resident in the State of a sum equal
to that paid to them by the United States
Goverriment prior to the secession of the
State, The. Convention has also endorsed
and approved of the conduct of Gen.
Twiggs in Texas, recognizing him as "a
brave and honorable soldier, and a wor
thy and patriotic son of Georgia."
FLOUR FOR THE PASSOVER.—The
Buldwinsville (N. Y.) Gazette notices
that 2,100 barrels of flour are being
ground at a mill in that place for the He
brews of New York, who will use it for
making unleavened bread for the Pass-
over. An agent of those who ordered
this flour is at the mill constantly, during
the process of grinding, and seals each
barrel with his private mark in wax.—

THE MISSOURI PLOT. —After the ex•
amination of the witnesses by the Com
mittee of the Missouri Convention, to as

State into secession, - it was reported by
Judge Birch, that as the Secessionists
had been baffled by the" power of public
opinion, there was no necessity for further
action by the Committee to expose the
THE PEACH CROP OF NEW JERSEY.
It is feared that the peach crop in some
parts of New Jersey is again nearly de
stroyed. The pleasant weather has caused
the peach buds to swell and almost burst;
but the cold has since blackened the buds
and in some orchards not a tree has been
?pared. The trees whioh bud a little
later than the earlier blossomers will
stand a better chance.

FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL,
Correspondence of the Daily Telegraph,
We are on the eve of a great experiment, a
peaceful proposition now that is involved with
the most dreadful uncertainty for the future.
The position of certain of the American States
has already affected the national character of
the American Union. That position, at once
defiant and belligerent, has nullified all law,
abrogated all allegiance to a superior power,
and repudiated those common reciprocities
which hetetofore made the American Union
great, glorious and prosperous. In juxta posi
tion with these States, is what remains of the
Federal Government; ready, we are informed,
to compromise with this conspiracy. We are
asked to concede to a dissatisfied member or
members of this Union, not the privelege of
appeal to our courts or a resort to legislation,
but the right of rev elution. We are cooly
informed that'a State has the power to re
assert and re-invest itself with the sover
eignty it had reposed in a compact entered into
for mutual benefits, and that, at any moment.
for such reason as it may see proper to advance.
A State can violently secede from its obligations,
and by force of arms refuse to fulfil its part of
a solemn and eternal compact. This is the doc
trine of modern statesmanship, that is willing
to sacrifice every hope of future glory and
greatness to present apprehensions of pe
cuniary loss of suffering. Peace now is pro
claimed to be in accordance with humani
ty and religion—but the peace which we may
enjoy for a false and cowardly compromise of our
national difficulties, will last only during/the
brief years of our declining greatness, at' the
consummation of which we will be forced to be
queath to our posterity not only the evils of
riot and revolution, but the burden of irretriev
able bankruptcy. If this is sound policy, a
gloomy future is indeed lowering in the dis
tance. If we are to pause for time to correct
our evils, error will have ample opportunity to
increase, until neither time, reason or truth
will be asked to overcome and crush it :effect
If the laws we have are not sufficiently strin
gent to preserve the power we assume, then
the Government has been for years nothing
more than a series of false legislative pretences,
out of which has grown the corruption so bit
terly complained of as being the source of all
our difficulties. We have made treaties with
foreign nations under the implied and asserted
assurance that we were a great and powerful
Government, capable of discharging every ob
ligation and fulfilling all our contracts. But
the implication and assertion were both false—
st least the inference is new fair that they
would have proven false if tested, because the
State which lacks the power to maintain its
authority at home, certainly does not possess
theability to vindicate its arrangements abroad.
We can Nine to no other conclusion under ex
isting circumstances, and until the American
Government learns properly to wield the power
with which it was invested by its founders for
irs own protection and preservation, we must
expect revolution and resistance, as well as
submit to every description of violence and out
rage. If this Government is to be divided to
satisfy the cupidity and ambition of a few
political agitators, it ie time that the people
were informed of the fact. If there is no power
to stay and prevent this dismemberment, it is
time also that the people were informed of the
dreadful truth, that they could forever hereaf
ter mourn the inability of man to govern him
self. But if there is power, (and that there is,
is plainly implied in the Constitution,) let it
at once be proclaimed that the Federal Govern
ment is determined to maintain the American
Union, peaceably if it can, but if absolutely
necessary, forcibly and at all hazard.
