, vfrt(iortt -In bur last number we expressed
ou apptobolion of (he 'I'ennessce' prup'osi
tion thai lllo Democratic .Naiimial Conven
tion for nominating candidates' for the
letldrinoy ami Vice PrcsidenSy. be held
in Novcmber, 1843; and wo also suggested
the, policy ,anil propriety of holding a Slato
C'6iiven))ort itt this slate on U 4th of' July
next, Jbf the purpose of appointing dele
gate flo Ite National Convention Wo
etili'' incline o adhere lo the views then
expressed, niiwiihstandinr several of Our
Editorial brelhern whom we highly respect
JiavVadvance'd a difleronl opinion.
As regards the time for holding our Na
tional Convention, there is not, as has
been intimated in some papers, any estab
hshed 'Democratic usage;' for the Conven
tion which, nominated our Presidential
Candidate for 1836 was. held
.in May 183o, while that which,
nominated the cannidale for 1840, was held
in May of that year. The latter Conven
tion was Ui fact but a mere formality, for
it was-universally conceded Mr. Van Bur
en would and ought to be nominated; the
former Convention, however, was not of
audi a characteristic character; claims
und qualifications were 16 be subjected lo
the oldeal of public scrutiny; and, therefore
wep"r'es"urae, wis held at a time sufficiently
.preceding the election, .or that purpose.
Hence tho ussee of the party, so far as
there .can be said to be usage of the subject,
:.. u.o ia'AA ' i ' i
'But, a National Convention In Novem
ber,, is more desirable on many accounts,
than. in May; and princpally because the
delegates to it will be more likely to come
direct from the ranks of the people, and bo
the true representatives of tho popular
Voice- whereas a convention in May, and
especially jn , the May immediately prece
ding the Presidential election, would be.
mora or lesr-affected by the influence of
Congress politicians, and the Delegates to
it, Being chosen, in many, of the states; at
tho places where, and whilst the legisla
tures ire in session.would be selected more
or less, under the influenco of the politicians
in.lhoie. the, several sets
of Government!
For these reasons., toeether with those
Bucceated' last week, add ohers which
sntuht be urffed if we had space, we' shall
continue te advocate a Democratic National
Convention in November, 1823, and a
Democial'ic Stale Convention on the 4th
of July next, at being calculated to promote
the harmony .anu success ot tne pany,uowi
jn the Union and in this Slate.
Most Horrible. We find the following
Birratiye in the Cincinnati Sun of Tuesday
last. ' Can it be true! ' We can scarcely
regard-it any other light'tban as a horrible
fiction, Baltimore aim.
It has been a matter of considerable
inauirv with the priests of die day, whether
the spirit of.God, or tho devij, was .upper
most in the world; but generally conrteetieu
that the latter took the lead. In the follow
ine instance, wq shudder at the depravity
of. the human. heart wonder at its hard
ness, and sigh over its obduracy. Some
three-yeats since a family of the first
standing, in onr city was called to mourn
the loss of a father, who had toiled to
amass a fortune for his wife and children.
Scarcely had he been laid in the grave,
'vhen'a plan was fixed upon by the children
two sons and a daughter, too horrible to
thinY of, yet too true to slumber, to abduct
the mother who stood between them and
the property of the dead father. Accor
dfngly.the mother was prevailed upon to go
"to tho country; where some relation resided.
The-journey was comenced; but on, the
same evening, the old lady was teturned to
this city, aecretly taken to the garret of
their family, mansion, and confined in
room where no ere could reacfr her .hut
tl.aiofthe daughter, the usurper of her
mother's rights. Here in solitude, the old
woman lay, with just food sufficient lo
keep her live, beyond the reach of friends.a
muzzle otr htr mouth to keep her from
crying aloud for help.
'A story was raised some few weeks
nfte,rthaiithe old lady had died io the
country mourning was put on by the sis
ter and two brothers, as well as the rela
lions, who actually supposed that the old
lady ad'lawful. owner of the property was
ceau ana in ner grave.
,i 'Two years rolled awav and the dauvh
ier and sons are in quiet possession of their
ill gotten wealth, when a circumstance
Uansp.ired shocking to relate,, A, person
employed about the premises', who had of
ten heard or surmised he heard, away in
,lhB,.fartherest part of th,e upper garret.moan
n,o,fow, indeed,as to be scarcely thought
earthly' about two months ago heard the
groans more distinctly than ever, and be
came convinced that foul play had been Used
upon some body. He watched till well as
eujed that in the dar,k and ghostly rooms of
-this gsrret, a human form was sufferine the
pains of, confinement and villainy. He a
roused the household, the guilty daughter
being absent.rushed to the spot with a lihl
burst open the door, and there beheld the
miserable form of the poor pld woman in
thp last agony of death! Whata sight! No
pen can describe 'the scene. Language fails
,to give an adequate view of such a spertaelel
'On the return of the daughter her hus
band and friends, by bribery and threats,
succeeded in quelling the noise just bursting
' forth. and Jiad the body secretly buried, snd
fhm utylh jpparnate now sund up. in tb
fifti ftdblety la lift very clly' as. pure., and
healthy, patterns brail thai is good and vir
tuous. Steps are sniJn lo be taken we learn
to Investigate this foul afialr.antl bring those
concerned in i( to justice.'
