JOIIX W.O'fcRIEX Editor. LOUDON: SATURDAY, MARCII 26. 1353. nM ti THE BANK OF EAST TENNESSEE. The rumors that this Bank had failed or like ly to do so, created some excitement in our town for two or three days past. It seems that the greater portion of the steck of this Bank is at present owned by E. Chittenden, a New j York Broker, who is also the principal owner of two Connecticut Banks the Woodbury Bank, with a circulation of $180,000; the Eastern j Bank of Killingly $120,000 both of which are o . announced in Thompson's Bank Note Reporter, of the 15th inst as having failed, together with the Bank of East Tennessee, and the Notes of all these Banks are "considered very near worthless.' The cause of these failures we un derstand to be extensive .peculations in Pork at St Louis, and other points out West, on the part of Mr. Chittenden. The Knoxville Register, of yesterday, in an article on this subject, says: "So far the bank has redeemed her issues promptly in gold and silver, but...

I For the Loudon Free Press. To M.E.W. of M. Fair lady thou Last won my heart, The ideal of my soul thou art, Thou gleamest in my dreams by day, And night subject to thy sway. I love thee and my words were weak The power of this deep love to speak Obi read it in my languid eye My pallied cheek, my ceaseless sigh. Yet think ne'er that some other fair, Has caused my deep, distracting care; It was thyself; and none but those Who won'st my heart, and pain'st it now. Yea, lady of the brow of snow, The eyes that like a seraph's glow; The beauty so divine that none May sure feign a fairer one. Oh! if thouls't sweetly smile on me, A dream of joy my life will be; Kut if away thou coldly turn, How deeply shall I ever mourn. LEO. Loudon, Teun., March 20, 185.1. For the "Loudon Free Press."

JOIIX O'BRIEN Editor. LOUDON: SATURDAY, APRIL 9, ISM. Hon. JOHN BELL. One of the best speeches delivered during the late session of Congress, was delivered by Sen ator Bell, the substance in part, of which we copy from the Nashville Whig, into- oar paper of this week- "We need not request our readers to give it an attentive perusal; occupying the posi tion in National Politics he does, anything from him will be read with interest. Mr. Bell occupies an enviable position not only as a Politician, but as a Statesman. He is looked upon by conservatives of all parties, as one of the most enlightened and reliable States men in the Union. His opinions are received by the Senate, with veneration and respect, on account of his personal integrity and the thor ough investigation he givc3 to every subject upon which he attempts to speak. It is known that Mr. Bell's Senatorial term will soon expire, and that the seat at present occupied by him, will have to be filled by the choice of the next Le...

1 fflutum fro JOII N W. O'BRI E BT Rditor. LOUDON: FRIDAY, APRIL 15 IS53. Jgy We hare changed our publication day to Friday, to meet various cross mails. Mrwrais Commercial Coxvextiox. Our readers will remember that the Commercial Convention held in Baltimore sometime since, adjourned to meet at Memphis on the first Mon day in June. As the time is now approaching, the people of East Tennessee, so deeply im mersed in- projects of Improvement, should not forget to have a strong delegation present on that interesting occasion. The true interests of the South and South west have long been neglected under tlie falla cious idea that our existence depended upon the maintainance of certain political abstractions. But those evil days, we fondly hope, are passed by, and the people are beginning to turn atten tion to the true source of political power and in fluence, and of individual prosperity and hap piness. With superior natural advantages, we have remained idle spectators of the mighty gr...

As there stated, toe Com pany had received from the Bank of New York, evidence fthe reception of $15,420, being more than tlie -amount due on State and Company "bonds. An account from the Bank at N.

It ia a grand mistake into which many American youth fall, that manual labor is not houorable. To be a merchant, a lawyer, a doctor, an engin eer, a military or naval officer, or a ship-master, is in their esteem much more honorable than it is to be a mechanic or a farmer. It cannot be denied that all these other occupations require exertion. The doctor is oftentimes weary when his day's work is done, as the farmer and black smith can be, but he is not half so sure of a quiet night's sleep as they are, and we all know to what hardships engineers are exposed, a...
