Raleigh to "diseovor and beenpy vuch remote heathen and barbarous lande, not possessed 0/ Ohti* Haa people, aa to him should m?o good." Wast is sow Km Mat* of Taaaoatoo wee within that obartsr ; bat though I may not exactly say that Tenacseee has moved, M haa certainly seen a great many May daya since that ttoae. Here, for instance, is Memphis, a elty of 30,000 Inhabitants, publishing to or daily papers, containing eight banks, one theatre, ten ohnreher, ene prison, and at He fear thousand booses only oae market "to let," and being financially, as a corporate body, two hundred dollars ahead ef independence at the last pay day, omit ? ?tog, beweeer, the Interact on some railroad bands vhtoh, being a species of speculation, cannot yot be eahed debt?safflelently far from heathendom or bar barism. This city is rsry prosperous in every way, ant eery healthy?the mortality being so slight that the per ?is a fraction. It is to a groat exteat the resting i of thoeo who leave New Orleans during the ho Business goes along smoothly, and though its ynrT bs not the slashing one of Eastern cities, it is oss that will last longer. I say prosperous in every way, as tedesd it is at prsssnt, though tbtrw are some who bs I? to look forward to financial embarrassments, and -who say that, tranquil as things bars been bltnerto, there difficulties after which New Yor* is jnet begin ?tog to breathe freely, are just developing themsilve* have, and that if the preeent crop bo not a good one. a grand "smash" must be the consequence. The present oxeeedisg drought makes tbiB hope almost a forlorn oae. as a contrast to this view, the report of ths Mem Canti Charleston Hal)road, just sent to, congratulates cuechon npon'Daving patted through these dlffioul ths sataly, and looks forward to good times When this road Is finished Memphis will be within three days Of New York. The newspapers are baring a war with the Aldermen about ihe Navy Yard, wbleh they wish to liars re cedei to the general government, it having been ceded to ths elty in the absence of an appropriation The Alderman have refused to make the cession. The two gubernato rial sand da*es ars at present canvassing the dtate, and the papers are with them Of the four an irninr papers pobtmcso here? 77<e Eagle and Enquirer, The Whig Tke .American and The Appeal?thr-e are in the interest of that ubiquitous Gam the schoolboy's rhyme used to say ''Mammy, mammy look at Sam," bat it would seem that to these days "Minima, mammy," would have to have moactrfnl eyes to obey that filial lojunction. The ag grsguto cirou nt;on of these four da'lies is 16,000. whmie yen may Inter that the dwellers in and about Memphis awe a reading people. T ie American and Whig, as their names import are devoted to progress and a majority. Iks Enquirer, which has six or the fi'teen thousand subscribers, believes that the United States is destined to ' absorb" Cuba, and that Mr. Gentry ought to be the next Governor ef Tennessee in preference to "Mr. An drew Sack coat Theocratic White-Basis Johnson," Mr Sentry being, in the Enquirer's epioion, "aa naturally oppessd to Johnson as light to darkness as true pitr.ot kn to false demagognry, high principles to low soall dwggsry." Mr Gentry is ths American candidate, and is in fsvor of a prohibitory law; Johnson behngs to the "Old Omarfl," (so old that it soums to be ro'ten,) and aa for too prohibitory law, "is not sure that be understands toe qmsstion " These three papers will support "the candidate," and Mamphis may he looked upon as a Know Nothing strong hold. The Daily Appeal is devote 1 to Johnson and ths news. Ths river is at present in a good state, bat is said to ha failing. Accounts from all around the country com plain ef the drought. Business in eotton is dull. A small paragraph in one of this mwaing's papers seams te indicate that the Wood-en head of your city government is appreciated here:?"A flUe de joie was arretted last night We are glad to aee that our officers awe detei mined to stop this street walking." G. H. Uranus, May 6,1815. A Mirer View of Memphis?The Streets of the City?Fire Alarms?Railroads in Prospect. iMD( like Mississippi boatmen, a look at tho " Bluff Oty " in a traditionally beautiful night. "Than the ohlM impose* on the manthe belief ie evidently the salto ef a former tune. Viewed from above "the Island," ? long way np the river, where the eity, lying in an amphitheatre, is only to be seen by proxy in the shape at half a dczen steeples, it looks well enough?yon see sa Utile ef it. Bat getting sufficiently near to era them clearly, I can't say that I think 1m landed "bluffs" cat onlated to have any other effect than to blnff off the pre viensly well inclined traveller. Any one who will observe the current pictures ef the battle-ground at Buena Vista aad imagine n few steeples and roofs over where the mountains stand, may form a tolerably clear idea of ho v Memphis looks from the river. The same alternation o! games and ridges appesrs in the streets and blafft as the ?bests ran down to the river, with the exception that the bluffs are something more squarely cat. Bat the hew houses that he by the river, and the hill through whitk the streets are eat, being once passed, a very ddhnst view is presented: aal whoever judged of tho ckty from tho river, seeing it here will own be the tint street is Mala street, which raws parallel wbth the river, and Is about three miles in length. FOf Pwo moles it la lined with stores on both moor, all of them goad looking ones, aad some of them very splen gig. On this stTeet, and between it and the river, is the Imaiaess of the eity, with the exception of some mini factoring establishments?car houses, mostly. Thta street crossed, the stranger begins to wonder where am the 20,000 inhabit ante?for appearances inli ?ate that he is in the suburbs. But he will wander on ?ad on, taking a very long walk, and still bs in the su burbs; aid if he measures it, as I did. he will oomc to -the eon Jusion that it is a suburban city, aad Is spread ?vera larger area than any other of equal populatirn in fhe Onion. This effect is producsd by the cirlumitsnce ghat every house has a garden around it. and no "peat ap Utiea" of a garden, either; bat a wile, free space, with room not only tor roses ana runners, that are there ~ i abundance, bat for plenty of trees, In wnieh Carolina king birds are whistling all day long. Tne perfume i these gardens ia delicious, and maxes mere breath j a luxury. A fine feature of tbe city attendant oa the gardens is the gatherings that take place on i in the evening. White dreaees show through t^e leaves, and sweet voices come out on the per air, and very pleasant is the sight and sound I For a custom ot fashion not much eissimiar nee an ancient history ot Mew York, by oas D. Kaick cifcoeker. ? The luxury of breathing spoken ot has, however, one drawback; the streets are not paved, aad in dry wea ther theie is a continual oloud of dust. It is quite as had the other way ia wet weather, for the mud fa knee deep, There is no stone dt for paving nearer than Cumberland river, and the city doss not choose to incur a debt, which loots like a mistaken economy. Owing to the dust, moustaches are in good repute. In this city mules are used almost entirely for draw tag. They are very email onas generally, oat seem to nrk well and to be kept In admirable condition. They isent aiemarkeble contrast to the bone rack* that _l the streets of New York. Tilt re was a Are here yesterday; lots between Ave and nix thousand dollars. Giving the alarm for a fire is a peeuhar institution. A half do sen beds ring off all at ?aee, and indiscriminately, commencing at thsir highest acta, and in a rapid succe?iion of aboat twenty strokes tapering down to nothing. It's more worthy of Chnv naen than anybody aiae; but it Is wood in so far as it is taspossibla to mistake the ringing or a Are alarm fo? any thing else. There is no system of ringing by district. ??ny m fore yesterday tbe engines were run around town tor an hoar, looking for a fire, when the belle stopped staging, ami the firiNaca went home. Strawberries are an every day reality. Croat honors are claimed prospectively for this city. When all the projected railroads are added to those al ready finished it is to he the eentral pot si of ttie soath western system. "There was a boy," who, when he ha? caught two more flah, besides the one that was nibbling, would have throe; however, Memphis is some ahisg better off than that, fho Memphis and Louisville. Memphis and La Orange, Memphis and Liitie Rock, and Wsetsatppi Central railroads, with thair various oon aeetioes, make already a tolerably eimplete system. The Memphis and Charleston road, now in operation mod finished exoept seventy miles, makes a straight con nection between the Atlantic aad the Mississippi, Use a continuation of this runs the road from hero to little Beck?and a westward continuation of that will look more like a Pacific railroad than anything elsa named. Then one is to ran through Virginia aad Pennsylvania diieetto Nsw Yore. More important, probably than nay ef the numerous roads projected from this State to and through Virginia, Kentucky, he , is one from bore Jo Bt. Leuis.

Browshviilk, Haywood Co., Tenn., May 14,1855. The Town of Brownsville?J's Situation anl Society? Pub'ic Bui'Ungt an l Churches?A Western Graveyard ?A Law Oj/ice and Politicianst? All the towns in Tennessee are county towns. As* natural consequence, thoy or* somewhat few and ra'-lier far between. Ttey art not like angelo visits. They are almoat all alike, and this,?though having a population of 1,300, it larger than the majority?it a fair sample of them all, a* I have teen them. A court home, built of trick, with a '? green" about it, and encircled by a white railing, ie the ee tral and principal point. About thin the town ia built, in a square, each of whose four sides face the eourt honse. Sot having ranch necessity to cramp themselves, the space between the different parts of this square and the court house, ia a respectably wide one, and has a plea ?ant, free appearance. On this square is generally al moat all the business of the town, and on busy days, or times when there is anything extra golag on, this space presents qnlte an anntwuted scene?for here every oae who enter* town ties his horse, and comes as to a rialto, where he is sure to find who or whatever he waits. Sunburned farmers, common place lawyers shabby shopmen, idle hotel keepers, ragged boys, and busy duties, here " mingle mingle," and go dodging about before horses, and between wheels, now lost, now seen, till they become ahnoit ao bo vildcriag to the eye as those wheels that toy shop keepers post in their windows at holiday times, that present a ooatinusl suc cession of scnte angles runnirg into ont another, alwaya appearing, and always going. Not such an appearance, however, do these square* preseat on three hundred of the three hundred and sixty five days Toe dwelling houses and churches are generally down the few stxee'-s that run off from this central point; tte former, exoept in very tare instances, ue of wood?general! - neat, pleasant little places, with nice gardens, aid si mo it evtrjthirg that Mr. Ktt Cosy "would call comfortable"? exeept their locality and the morning papers; with the latter, wood and brick have a division, although not alwaya a ''ravishing division." to me of the churches ue moat unblessed looking edifices Bet I have seen two. not far from here, that I think tooled more lite churches taan anything I ever saw before; net so much for the edifice-., waich ware simple and primitive, but for their positions. They ware both tar out in tbe woods, where toe wools were wild, ball a doztn miles from uny town and tbree or four from a bouse, alone with tbe ?unah.ne and the shade? the moonlight and the morn?with nothing near bet the solemn old oars about and the high clouds above, and the very ab around aeemad still and holy. They were churches. Men may go into those churches in the city that are built in the aam* row with nigh brick houses, from which you can scarcely tell thsm, and hardly note tbe difference between going into the dwelling or tie church?go into tither with the same thoughts or feel ings; but nothing abort of a cast iron specimen could are apt to consider the church, lemehew, aa something rrlat ug to ceatb, and the graveyard always comes with It ia one's thoughts. I saw two of the ordinary grave yards one morning, with prettily tOnlpturad monuments, affectionate inacrtp tiona, plenty of (lowers, and all that, and the sum even ing 1 saw a singular contract to them both?a graveyard la the wrode, though not near to either of the cuurehse It seemed to he a private one; and a mora desolate and melancholy looting spot I do not wish ?o ss*. It was in the woods, though not far from the road, aad about a dozen yards square, enclosed by a rough piece of snake fence, three or lour rati* high. Within It were eight graves, omy distinguished from the common surface of dead leaves, trom the rain, owing to their slight eleva tion. having washed them clear, and by there being, at tbe head end foot of each, a Utilepieoe of etooa? in some pieces scarcely diseernable?like the fragment of a flag ?tone driven into the ground. And the cypress trews that grew around and on the spot, mat bo closely at the top that no ray of sunshine could possibly touch the earth. It was a melancholy spot?do inscriptions, no sunshine, ao flowers?nothing at ail but death?nothing except those aad cypress trees, more like death than life. I couldn't help thinking of Allan Ramsay's wish to lie "wliare tbe dais is would grow over his head." Teere waa no one by who knew aught of the place. 1 think thoy must have been ths gravis of strangers, tor no man who had the choice 01 another spot, would bury hfs re lative there. But I am leaving the town. 1 have given yon its general appearance ordinarily, and to some degree extraordinarily. Io day is one ol tue three hundred days, aad the town is mot alive with visit ers, businsta, or aught else that I can discover. It is hot midday. A few lazy looking horses, with scarcely animation enough to brush away th* flies, are atanding tied out in the " space." Hare and there a storekeeper leans listlessly ia hi* doorway; at intervals some eerson will cress the space aad disappear aa tbe window lsdgs rises between him and the llus of my viaion? and this is all, except the group gathered yonder, where a shingle of very modest cimenslona announces a law otBso. There, ia the shade of a tew locust trees, seated on the stoop, leaning agalost the wall, and on cha rs, in every variety of position, sideways, straight, with their legs thrown over the backs, and a oaiifaurchon, are about a dcxen men. The guffaw that sounds out, " the loud laugh that shows tbe vacant mind," Indicates that their diacassicns are not very weighty. A word that oomsa up tety that thoy are talcing about the Know Nothings, and a aeavy mao, with hia hat off, ia declaim eg against secresy. How many persons there are who dou't like mystery 1- o Dome by which they call everything that thev don't understand. These or* all the eight# here; oad those occasionally heard voices, with a few notes of a flate run up anl down, an accord eon now and then drawn ones or tsrioo, and th* rich laugh of a little darkey, are all 'tffl sounds. It becomes mora lively as sight conies oo: the houses are thrown open, p?ople walk ont, and everytoiog seems different; hut it is still very dull. Life h?r* 1* a vsry alow thing; and aomo of the people themselves are wil ling to acknowledge that thoy eaa scarcely " keep soul sad body together"?a circumstance that, in many in stances, seems to b* sufficiently evident.

Jts Location and Pint Gradua'es ?Northern and Southern Interest?Commencement Ex ercises?The Sermon, Dedimationt, and Dialectic Ad dress. Tba University of North Carolina, located in tba smalt yet beautiful viHa|e of Chapel Hill, ia tha institu tion of the State, nod perhaps I should do other eol leges no injustice by saying it ia tlia institution af tba South. Organised in tba year 1706, the aid poplar traa ia atjil atancing in the Campus under which the trus tees held their first deliberations. Tha aollego grounds comprice about twelve aeraa of high Wads, filled with ?hade tiers, lative to tha soil The regularity of an artificial grove ia thus lost, but the fall beauty of bath ia retained. The first graduates were ia 1708. Tiking the tabk of matriculants as tba basis of an opinion, tba college seemtd to move steadily on, increasing in strength ant influence, from Its organization up to 1824. For thena?l. .twenty-four years it teems ta bars passed through a variety of adverse fortunes, and the year 1848 gave it kaB matriculants than lb24. But the fostering ear# of tha State, wle* councils, and a full and a highly compe tent corps of professors and tutors, with a vary full ani rigid course of studies, placed the University in a position to command the patronage of those who would have their eons educated in an inatititatkn of tha highest order. Since 1548 tha number sf matri culants has mora than doubled, and laat yaar tha cata logue give a as?Seniora 65, juniors 66, sophomores 02, frtsbman, 06; partial courts, 13; law students, 12. Total, 324. But there ia another reason why this col lege, and moat of those in the South, are now prospering wall?a mason which ahonld make tha fanatical aboli tionist of the Noilta pause in hia mad ravings against an institution of which he knowa little or nothing. A few yaars tinea a large proporticn of those who received a collegiate education obtained it at some Northern in attention; now, tbo number ia very small. Stlf-respect, self-preservation, have driven them ta patronise home edit gee. If those who prato so much about slavery, and deal ontauch anathemas upon every slaveholder who comes within the hearing of their voices, would have half the aelf-respect, or wonld ascertain what slavery is, not from abolition books made to prejudice the pub lic statement, hut by actual observation and mingling with the (lavtholders and tbe slaves, they would oease to he hostile against tbo South on account of a domes'.ic institution recognized and protested by onr common con stitution. Northern interest also demands a eessstion ef these hostilities. But more on this point at some future time. He commencement exercises were opened on Monday night, Jnne 4, by a lermon be ore the graduating clue, bj tbe Rev Benjamin M. Palmer, D. D , of Columbia, S C. Text, Jobn 8; 68, 89. *? Then Simon Peter answered bim, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hut the words of eternal life. And we believe, and are euro that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God." This sermon was one of the very best, in every reap'ct, that it has been my good fortune to listen to, (and I have listened to msny of those who rank among tbe first theologians of our country ) I bad taken vsry full notes, but flnd ne it tmmaokis <>u tne sermon or its author Justice, the retde.- must be content with this passing notice. Tuesday night, declamations from the freshman compe titors. On Wednesday at 10 o'clock, A. VI, the Dialectic aad Philanthropic Societies met to listen to an address from George Davie, Esq., of Wilmington, N. C. llr. Davie is a man of rather email stature, modest and retiring in manners, and at tirat is not likely to favorably impress the mind of the stranger. But these defects, if ?uoh they are, are more than mode up by a well stored and disciplined mind. Be is yet quite a young man; hut be ha* mate hie mark, and well may his State feel proud o.' such a good and noble son His theme upon this occasion was, "The Early Times and Men of the Lower Cape Pear," After a brief apology that one so young? one needing instruction?should he called upon to teach, ho proceeded to say, that the historian of the United States (Bancroft) has complained of the carelessness with which the history of North Carolina baa been writ ten. The reproach ia hut too just. As colony and State not ysttwo centuries old, the story of hsr infancy ant early progress is o sealed book to the many, aad to the curious few is more Imperfectly knowa than that of nations which flourished and decayed thousands of years ago And If this is true of the State at largo, it ia emi nently so of that faction in which I l.ve The Capo Fear oonntry never has had a historian. Its pubi c ro coris wore always meagre and barren; its private rvccrds, once rich and fruitful sources of klstory, have become much mutilated and impaired by the lapse of time. Its traditions are perishing, and are burled daily with our dead, as the old are passing away. I have thought, therefore, that Instead of ssrmonlsiug upon themes which were long ago threadbare, I would give you a sketch, imperfect as It may bo, ot too os.rly tunes and men of the lower Caps Fear. I shall not aspire to the dignity of history. I assume the humble, but still pious duty, of connecting recorded facts?of perpetuat ing traditions, and of plueklog away the mosses which have gathered on the tombe of some of our illustrious dead. (Cheers ) He then went on to speak ef tbe early settlement of Old Town Creek, nine miles beiow Wilming ton, by the young mother of cclonies, Massachusetts. Disasters and distress soon came upon them, but the mother heard the cries of her children and mtnutered to their wanta. One hundnd and ten year* afterwards, when the Boeton port bill had spread a pall of gloom and diatrees over that city, the people of Cape Fear re membered the generous succor of Ma<sact usotts. With one voice they deelaroi "the cause of Boston was the cause of all.1' Their safety committees determined that all goods imported contrary to the resolve of tbe Conti nental Congress should bo tailed and sold, and the pro coeds, after deducting the first coat, should be sent to ths poor of Boston. Tbey did more. They chartered a vss>el, loaded her with provisions at a cost of ?800, aad sent her to the relief of the suiterers by the Boston port bill. It were well if the people of New England would pauFO in their fanaticism to ponder aad remember th ugs like three. Ibis Massachusetts colony, after suffering many re verses ano hardships, returned to their native soil. Other attempts were sends to settle ths Capo Fear country, and mat a similar fate. Tfce efforts woio des cribed by the speaker in full, and ho stated as a singular faet that historians had detailed with great preeisl >n the uniuc^sstal efforts, yet not one record where, bow, or by whom its permsnsnt settlement was e(Tested Bo vsgne has tradition become in tbe lapse of years, that, though wo know tbe maener aad the men, we cannot now fix the time with any precision Toe speaker then pro seeded to prove that the saocossful effort* to settle the Caps Fear were put forth by Colonel M .urire Moors and his brother, Roger Moore-soot of ths fl t Governor Moore, of Soutb GnroMsa; then foils wed a vsry inters sting history of these efforts, ao 1 many a nobis tribute to the memory of tho early p'oaeers of toe Cape Ftar.

As hia theme?Oliver Cromwell?wag announced, the audience seemed a little disappointed; so much baring be?n recently written upon tho Uto and character of that men, moat felt thit the selection was an unfortu nate eg e for the occasion. Two centuries had elapsed since Cromwell's death; still very little was known to regard to him, though all he did was open to tbe study and scrutiny of all He belonged to an Illiterate family, and it waa his misfortune that his historian waa hie greatest enemy. If eome dead men kn?w in what eati matlon they are held, it is difficult to conceive how they can he to Pnradlae. fiat Ckrlyle has done him jus tice, and resentd his name from oblivion. Even hia enemies now acknowledge him to have boon a great man, and tbe scene# of phrenology proves it by kto portrait. Though grMt, what enduring monument baa he left to perpetaate hie memory? While alive he made all obsy by force, bnt at hie death there wee no greater regard for law than at the beginning of bis reign. The arts and sciences were not advaaoed; he destroyed, hut could not rebuild. A mere warrior, yet bis letters and spseches show him to have bean a* gentle as a woman. The basis of his character was profound mtlaacholy. This rendered him highly susceptible to intense religious impressions. The speaker compared him to Luther, Mahomet and Joe Smith, considering that the melancholic temperament predominated in all of these personages, and their strong and eccentrie re II gicns notions ware the result of that melancholy. He justified Cromwell's eppoaition to the Church of Borland hi* massacre of the Wild Irishmen was to s wo the flow f?B8bt for his religion and hie country Napoleon, and other warriors, to advance their owa into' rests. Born in a hothouse ot religious seal, be did what he thought to bo rght. He iinasd; jet now fow are fcvmptte as wee Cromwell! The weakness of human na ture, which so alHiete n* all, is quite sufficient to *e ?ount for all the defects of hi* life. Tbe close of his life iocicatva his pnzlty end sincerity.

Behoving that a few lines from thli poet, the outside crust of civilization, might prove of some Interest to J oat many thousand leaders who wish to nuke their lortunes, I take the liberty of dropping ysu a few lines by way of informing yon of a new discovery ef gold mines, distovered about four hundred miles northwest of this place, a partial description of which you have doubtless seen before th's time in the St. Louis papers. Mr. Jesse Chiaholm is here now, and I have just hai a conversation with him; he is sn old trapper, we?) acquainted with the region of country where the goid is said to have been dlscoveied, and onterta ns no doubt but that the gold mines on the Red Fork of the Arkansas ere as rich as the richest mines of California. Essays that the country abounds with the blaek sand and all other indications of a rich gold region, and parti si es of goid have frequently been picked up in the bed of the nrkinsaa many miles below the mouth of toe Red Fork and at that place, but the Iadiana have hitherto be?? so boetUe as to present the working or exploring of tbe mines. There are sow several companies fitting out at this place to start under the guidance of Chieholoi to tbe newly discovered gold diggings, armed and equipped t > pioteet themselves from tbe savages, as well as Qtted out for digging the precious dust, so that we shall very soon hear all about tho richness of the Red Fork tn'nes. That there is gold there, and In considerable quantities, those acquainted with tbo country do not doubt fir a moment; hut whether it is found in such abundance as to enable a single band to wash out $1C0 per day with nothing to work with but a common wash basin, as some returned Mlasourians, now hire laying in supplies for tbe m nee, report, is somewhat disbelieved: but tbose who have been tbeie and have ths best right know, have ell ecnflcenee of tbe richness of the mines. You shall hsar from mo again as soon as 1 hoar from the mhiee, ray in ten day* or two woska, shou'd this communication receive favor. Raid ABLE.
