Oh, do not look so bright and blest, "
For still there comes a fear,
When brow like thine looks happiest,
That grief is then most near.
There lurks a dread in all delight,
A shadow near each ray,
That warns us then to fear their night,
When most we wish their stay.
Then look not thou so bright and blest,
For ah there comes a fear,
When brow like thine looks happiest,
That grief is then most near.
Why is it thus that fairest things
The soonest fleet and die ?
That when most light is on their wings,
They're then but spread to fly?
And, sadder still, the pain will stay,
The bliss no more appeals;
As rainbows take their light away,
And leave us but their leats
Then look, &c.
MODERN WHIGERY.
The following article was published last November,
in the United States Bank Gazette : ,
The Editor of the St Louis Argus, who is un-
doubtedly one uf the greatest dealers in falsehood in
the West, tells his readers tha: Massachusetts has elect-
ed a Vai Buren Govennor, Senate, and House of Rep-
resentatives He has bgen refreshing himself from
Munchausen lately. Such a man should be sent to the
copper ntriftes."
What does Mr Chandler think now as to a Van Bu-
ren Governor in Massachusetts ? and who does he think
now to be one of the greatest dealers infalsehood ?
What would he think now as to the Senate and
House, had all the members of the latter been present
at the opening of the session, and voted as their con-
sihLutinhi eplcil.,d arid wirhed '-G'e.

PRESENCEOF MIND IN THE HOrII L OF DAN-
GER.
4Several years ago a disaster occurred on Lake
Champlain, similar in many respects to the burning of
the Lexington. One stormy night, as the steamboat,
Pheniit, with full load of passengers and freight was
ploughing her way through the waters of Champlain,
a fire broke out at midnight, and soon raged with trre-
siastible violence The passengers roused by the alarm
front, their slumbers, and waking to a terrible sense of
impending destruction, rushed in crowds ponb the
deck and attempted to seize the boats. Here, how-
ever they were met by the captain, wvho, having ab:n-
doned all hope of saving his boat, now thought, only of
saving his passengers, and stood by the gangway of
his vessel with a pistol in each hand, determined to
prevent any person from jumping into thIe boats before
they were properly lowered into the water and pre-
pared to receive their living freight. With the utmost
coolness and presence of mind he superintended the
necessary preparations, and in a few minutes the boats
were lowered away, and the passengers received safely
on board.
They then shoved off and pulled through the dark-
ness for the distant shore.' As soon as :his was reach-
ed and the passengers landed, the boats returned to
the steamboat and took offthe crew, and as the captain
supposed every living soal exceptihimself. But short-
ly after the boats had left the second time, ho discov-
ered under a settee the chambermaid or thie Phenix,
who in her fright and confusion had lost all conscious-
ness. Lashing her to the plank which hie had prepared
for his own escape, this gallant captain launched her
towards the shore; and was thus left alone with his
vessel, now one burning pile. Ha in-g satisfied him-
selfthat no living thing temuironed urn board his boat,
and with the proud consciousness that he had saved
every life entrusted to his care ho sprung fiomn :lie
wreck as it was about to sink beneath the wai stI, anid
by means of a settee reached the shore in safety.
The above is no exaggerated story. It is the simple
narrative of one cfln heno-f linhe.ic acts on record. We
have only to add :iuLt tIe Captrin who so faithfully and
fearlessly di-chdrg-.l his duty on this tl irng occasion,
is still n111 crnrniand ofa noble bol utn L"ikou Champlain
and is known to every traveller as Captain Shermnn uf
the steuiibuat Burlington.

From the Buffalo Corn. Advertiser.
A vINtLiDEN r AT TJi F. LLS. We learn from a
corieqpnrrient ui the Falls that there was a general turn
out of tihe ntizens of that picdee, day before esierday,
to see a live deer take the awful plurnge 'The deer
was driven to thd shore of the river aboul two and a
half miles above the Falls." Being closely pursued by
sportsmen and hounds, he took to the ice, and ventured
out o 10fir. tha.t Lie diiIn" A- -h;th hs -v"4-- b-.-l. u-R
fioeri thc marin body, and flouated out into the stream.-
He was wafted down the stream very gently until he
reached the rapids, when his frail support soon broke
in pieces, and. he was left to struggle for life in the mad
torrent. He finally succeeded in reaching a small Is-
land, which mauy of our readers may remeriber near
the head of Goat Island, and between that and the Ca-
nada shore. No person thais ever been un tho Island,
except when the ice lodges around its head, and forms
a kind of dam, which admits of a hazardous passage.-
At the present time the river is as open as in midsum-
mer, yet Robinson, who distinguished himself last sum-
mer by his daring in rescuing Chapin, resolved to go
over in a boat and bring the deer off. Htie made thie at-
lempt, but was not able tot gain the Island. Mr Win.
Conklin, accompanied by Mr Munger, then determined
to go. ]'hey rowed out to the rapids below the Island,
thinking to get into the Iddy at its foot, but while con-
tending with the strong current, one oar broke and with
the speed of a race horse they were instantly hurried
toward tile brink of the precipice. As they passed over
a small bar Conklin jumped out, and succeeded in stop-
ping the boat, the water being only about waist deep.
After regaining their presence of mind, they started a-
gain, and by means of their single oar and a pole, lan-
ded on Goat Island just above the Falls.
The deer still remains on his rocky islet.

There is much humanity in the following advice
given by a correspondent of the Pennstylvanian :
"Those who have the care of horses at this cold sea-
son, should be careful before bridling them, to hold
the bit in the hand until it is warm, instead of putting
iron into the animal's mouth, so cold that the skin will
adhere to it and be torn off. A neglect of this caution
will give the animal a sore mouth, much pain, and
causes it to feed badly for several days."

GREAT FIRE IN PENSACOLA.-A great fire
broke out in Pensacola, Jan. 4th, and consumed nearly
the whole front of the square in the best part of the
town.

Tough Weather.-In Franconia, N.H., on Friday,
January 17th, the spirit thermometer fell to thirty-sev-
en degrees below zero. and the mercury to forty de-
grees below zero. In Springfield, Mass., the thermom-
eter, on the same morning, was thirty degrees below
zero.

IMPORTANT DEcisiox.-The Federal Court in
Mississippi, has decided that all contracts for negroes
brought into that State and sold as merchandize,"
are illegal, and as suech null and void. This decision
it is thought will have a bearing on Mississippi debts to
northern negro traders, to the amount of two millions
of dollars.

JUDICIAL ANECDOTE.
The courts of Vermont haveobeen celebrated for many
years for the wit and amusing penculiarities of several
of their justices. Anecdotes are rife ri,-ecmg them,
from the rough and coarse hlanior of Hasengton, to the
more polished scintillations of his successors of modara
times. Nothing can be more racy than ihre following,
which we are confident ii n ew to the majority of oar
readers. .
Judge -- nad effected a settlement of accounts
with one of his neighbors, a very paraimonions mrar,
and it was found impossible to make correct change
within three cents.ivhich the Judge said be would hand
to the other at any subseqent 1; i-d. Some days af-
ter, while the judge was upon iO e beech, and in the
midst of a cause, the avaricious neighbor, whose brains
could not rest while the three cents were absent fror
his pocket, appeared in the courtI room, and with slight
ceremony, beckoned to his debtor to grant him an in-
terview. The judge, who was so unfortunate as lt
stutter somewhat, appreciated instantly ltha purpose
of the applicant, and arrested the progress of the
case, wilb "st-stop, a f-f-fear moments. ent-antil II
speak t-t-t-to my neighbor P-----." He thereupta
decended from the bench, and accompanied neighbor
P. to a private room, and, as he expected, received a
demand from the delinquent three cents. He paid
it, obtained a receipt, and returned to the court room,
convulsing every one present with laughter, by the
following remark; "th-they s-say, th-that at t-t-the
m-m-m-moment any one d-d-dies, another in b-berao,

curitues, and serves, lheuiefore, as a tg.- i T,'I.i
in their purchase of State stocks. It adds :hat if
schemes of internal improvements are to be carried in-
in eltct imn the vast scale aid with rapidity lately pro-
,.id. and by means of foreign capital, a more com-
pi, heri% e guarantee than that of individual States will
be required to raise so large an amount in a short
time.
A national pledge is hinted at, but even with this,
t i thought that-forced sales of loans made by all the in-
dividual slates, in reckless competition, through a num-
ber of channels, renders the terms more and more on-
erous for all, lower the reputation of American credit,
and, as reliance is almost exclusively placed on the
Io.ndon market, produce temporary mischief by absor-
'bing the fluatitg capital, diverting money from regular
business, deranging banking operations, and producing
an unnatmal balance of trade against England. The
States mast therefore either pause in the execution of
their works of improvement, or same general system of
cormbiatlion must be adopted.

of years, been pursued by the Democracy, in the se-

TWENTY-SIXTH CONGRESS.
In the Senate on Wednesday a communication
from the President, showing the extent of the mas-
sacres, and destruction of property by the Indians of
Florida, was submitted-also a message communica-
ting further correspondence relative to the North-
eastern boundary. Of the last communication 5,0VJ
copies were ordered to be printed.'
Seinome debate arose on resolutions offered on the
preceding d ',. .Mr. Wehbster spoke at some length
in support -.I i.:- proposition for a drawback on coal
consumed in outward bound steambiats-and Mr.
Webster on the resoiotion for inquiry relative to
furtherlegislaiion for the security of steam naviga-
tion. Both propositions wero suffered to lie over for
the present. There was somne debate on the subject
of the Cumberland Road appropriation, and respect-
ino navy pensioners.
In ths House of Representatives, Mr. Parmenter
of Massachusetts, asked permission to present a me-
morial for voters in the Sixth Congressional Dis-
trict, contesting the seat of Mr. Baker,which lie con-
sidereduas of a privileged character. The Speaker
decided the motion not to be a ri-,,. 1,,_'..1 one.
After unsuccessful attempts to get up the consid-
eration of one or two euhjects, that of the print-
ing for the House was taken up and the Hlouse was
occupied upon it during the whole of the day's
session. Some of the proceedings were quite disor-
der) ,
I i, Senate, on Thursday, Mr. Grundy, from
the Committee on Mr. Benton's resolutions relative
to debts of the States, made a report, concluding
with propositions .*, ;. i2 nearly with those submit-
ted by Mr. Benton. Mr Benton moved that 30,000
copies of it be printed. An animated debate ensued,
in which many members took a part. The report
was recommitted, without instructions.
In the House of Representatives, the subject of
the public printinZ was resumed, as the unfinished
business of Wednesday, and it occupied the House
during the whole day's session. A ballot was finally
taken, and the votes were for Blair ., Rives l10,
Gales & Seaton 92, T. W. White iof Richmond 2, S.
Jamnbaugh of Philadelphia 2, Duff Green I. The
first named candidates wore accordingly chosen, and
the House adjourned.
In the Senate, on Friday, Mr. Grnndy brought
forward his report (which had been recommitted) up-
on the subject of State debt., considerably amended.
It was again debated wilh considerable animation,
but before taking any question it was laid on the ta-
ble, that the Senate might go into Executive Session
The House was occupied during the whole day by
the election of the committee to decide the rates of
printing, under Mr. Black's resolution. Thie roll
was called, and each member named five gentlemen
to serve upon this committee. But before the votes
were counted thIe House adjourned over till Monday.
SENATE.-Monday, Feb. 3.-Among the memori-
als presented, was one by Mr Clay, from sundry per-
sons, asking for a formation of a new department of
government; to embrace the subjects of Education, A-
gricuhlture, &c. Also, one by Mt Buchanan, fromciti-
zens of Philaaelphia, asking for a moderate duty to be
imposed on foreign silks, signed by every importer of
silks in Philadelphia.
Mr Clay also presented a memorial from the cham-
ber of Commerce, at Louisville, praying that the Gen-
ral Government might ne enabled to purchase stock of
the Louisville and Portland Canal. The memorial states
that the imriposts on boats passing through the canal, by
way of tolls, in five years amounted to one-half the
original cost; Mr Clay had received a letter from a pi-
lot on the river,'stating that thi falls at Louisville might
ie improved for $150,000, so as to supercede the use
of the canal.
The subject of the Assumption of state debts was
again taken up and debated, and then laid aside.
House-Messrs. Black,rof Ga. Davis, find, Prentiss,
of N. Y. Garland, of La. and Evans,of Me. was chosen
a committee on the printing for the House.
There was ono ballot for chaplain, but no choice.
In the Senate, on Tuesday, Feb. 4, Mr Tappan of
Ohio gave his views at length and his reasons for de-
clining to present a number of Abolition petitions sent
to him from his constituents, and he was compliment-
ed for his speech and his determination by Mr Preston
of South Carolina.
The resolution relating to steamboats, &e, submit-
ted hy Mr Webster, was taken up and agreed to.
'1'he resolution ofMr Preston, calling on the President
for the causes of the removal of Gmv. Call, of Florida,
was taken up, and, after being so amended as to strike
out as much as requests the President to "gives his rea-
sons," was adopted.
Debts of the States. The Senate having resumed
the consideration of tie report of the committee on Mr
Benton's resolution in regamd to the debts of the States,
Mr Phelps addressed the Senate in opposition to the
sentiments and printing of the report, bat especially in
vindication of the State of Y'.ermont, who was not in
debt, from the charge that her desire and request that
the proceeds of the public lands should be equally,dis-
tributed among the States, amounted at all to a propo-
sition for assuming the debts of the States.
At the request of Mr Calhoun,i who expressed a de-
sire to speak to-morrow on the subject, it u.as inform-
ally passed over.
And then the Senate adjourned.
In the House on Tuesday, the Committee on Public
Printing obtained leave to employ a clerks and power
to send for persons and papers. ,
Dr Bates was elected chaplain.
The Spanker presented a communication fiom the
President, accompanied by a report from the Secretary
of the Treasury, respecting thi revenue laws, &c.
Mr Wuddy Thompson, fiom theta military committee
introduced, on leave, a bill providing for the raising of
.1600 msen to serve against the Florida Indians: which
was read twice and referred to a committee of the


whole on the state of the Union.

Tl. ELECTION OF PUBLIC PRINTER.
The election of Messrs. Blair and Rives, as
Printers to the House, hy a innjority of 18 votes
over Gales and Seaton, has given a sort oftlenth
Nlow to the hliopes of feilernlism foir the present
Congress. Thle Intelligencer expresses ait belief
that the result would have been different, if ev-
ery recognized- m'nuimber had been present, and
been reduced to the alternative of choosing be-
tween the two candidates," and certain Geor-
gia members hiad voted with the majority of
their colleagues. Alhinom t any thing miay. lie
miade out with an IF. IF the federal party hadil
found the iiunjority in the House which they an-
ticipatetd,andl boasted of so long before the comn-
mencenient of the session, there is no question
hut Gales and Sieaton might have been elected !
But the Globe shows from mruatter of fact, that,
giving them all they could possibly believe or
guess themselves entitled to, with thefive spuri-
ous membersfrom Nets Jersey, to boot, it woull
still have left Gales anil Seaton in a minority of
four ; and on the presumption that the House
shall ultimately exclude all the illegal members,
even allowing to Gales nild "i. 'I1m the vote of
Naylor, notoriously elected liby fraud, the nmajor-
ity for Blair and Rives would still be 17.
The result of this election of public Printer,
has, at all events, proved it greater Democrati'
majority than was anticipated, and is it most
cheering and decisive victory. Ve congratu--
late the democracy of thIe country on the result.
ASSUMPTION OF lTHE STATES' DEBTS.
The report of the committee on Mr Benton'sI
resolutions against the assumption of the debts
of the St:ites by the general government, has
been presented, recommending propositions a-
greeing it) substance with thosesubmnitted in the
original resolutions, and the subject matter is
undergoing an animated discussion. The fedle-
ral papers hardly seem to know how to grt rid
of this subject ; thie Concord Statesman insists
that "the adoption of the State debts by the fed-
eral government is % '"i..--i of Mr Calhoun,"
and that the bill which he has recently introdu-
cel into Congrees f'or ceding the public lands to
the States in which they lie, is the means of its
accomplishment," and inu fine that the assuaip-
lion "is an administration measure, designed
to bhiy the western States into its support.".
The Statesman finds that the assumption, in
any shape, is likely to meet but little favor
in this part of the country, and is therefore
trying t-i -.t i;.l of it by npalmning it off
ins an ah.liii.i-in .iiii measure. But the difficul-
ty is, that itt the report of' the doings of the Sen-
ate foujdt in the same paper, it appears that the
federal member s, of the Senate are pretty uni-
formly arrayed against both Mr Benton's reso-
lutions and the report. It says, Mr Preston
riddled both the report andil its author, with hi'
satirical rapier, and Mr Southnrd gave the doe-
ument a scathing denunciations," and yet the as-
sumption which the document of Mr Grundy
and the resolutions of Mr Benton so strenuons-
ly oppose,is, according to the Statesman, an ad-
ministration measure !
But it is notnt fact that Mr Calhoun's land
bill is intended to accomniplish the assumption of
the State debts. We are neither the advocate
nor the oauposer of Mr Calhoun's bill,-have
not yet determined whether it be right or
wrong; but if we understand it at all, it is very
far fromn having even squinting towards the as-
sumption of the States' debts. It is well known
that the expenses of paying for the public lands
to the States, and theextilrguishmnert of the It-
dian titles, with the expenses of surveys, sales,
&c. have exceeded by something like eight muil-
lions the whole amount of receipts from that
supposed source of revenue. This Mr Benton
has proved by unanswerable evidence in his late
speech,, which we conclnde'rl in our last paper.
Now the proposition of Mr. Calhoun, as wo
understand it, is, to cede these Iulads to the.
States in which they lie, on their paying, or se-
curing to be paid, to the U. Si,1,i, about, we
thiik, (for we have not the bihl before us,) fifty
per cent. or. the gross amount of land sales, they
(the States) paying for all the expenses of the
surveys, sales, and general administration of the
lantls, out of the other moiety of the gross pro-
seeds. Under this view of thie subject, there is
no certainty hut this mode may prove the best
rdisposition of the public donmain. It will, at
least, relieve the U,. States froom the burden anid
expense ofthe administration of the public landl,
wllichh has hithertn proved extremely ouerous,
athd may enable them to realize quite as much


Revenue as might he expected under their own
administration. But this remains to be examin-
ed ; we do not give our approval .r ,I;. ir-Ipr-i-
al of the plan, hut only give this ri.- nIl % I i ,1-,
its object, to show that it has nothing to do with
the assumption o(if the State debts.
But the Statesman professes to object to this
assumption simnply,on the ground that to assumno

to rush into those extravagancies which InI,'V
proved so injurious to the indebted States,4- have
almost involved some of them in ruin, and literal-
ly brought them to the feet offoreign bankers nand
monied institutions. The way to ensure to New
Hampshire her full proportion of the proceeds
of the public domain, is, to devote its proceed
to the expenditures of the general government,
and' save the payment of duties.

THE EAIiE[I)OK REOIULL'I'ONS.
On the outside of our paper will be found the pro-
ceedings and reso!ui;ons .f thii Srrniloriri Coreniion.
We alluded to the -.-..l,.nsia refeicn,'e to the N. H.
Gazette, in an article ir o,'.rlh Ijb6l 11-. ii ag een
them when that aiti I .': ..' iiter,, ue apokooi them
af course only by report. In the Patriot, from which
we have copied the proceedings on the question of the
passage of thu resolutions, there are twenty.five names
recorded in the affirmative and no negatives are given;
- in the Exeter Democrat, two negatives are given-.-
There were, according to the record,thirty members at
the convention, and of course there were five who did
not vote for the resolutions. Three of them, among
whom was Capt. Rowe, who a le.,inr,. opposed their
passage by a few Vppropriate remains, left the conven-
tion, probably in disgust at the course taken. It ap-
pears also from the records of the two conventions, that
there were three present at the ast convention of the
2Sth ult. that were not members of the convention of
the 8th ult., and of course could k9pw nothing of tih
first convention except by hearsay. We do not, how-
ever lay much stress upon these facts, but proceed ti
a candid examination rf the ground en hicik a he reaso-
lutions, in ti.f,,-ri ce. .,ah, IX IL G,zie.ippeai to be
founded.
It is charged in the fiust rl,-'IIuian Ihani, the A./ S,
Gazelle of the 14th inst. contained the proceedings of
this convention at its session of the 8th inst. under the
caption of the Seabrook Fig't, accormpanied'with car-
tain editorial remarks upon an incident," &c. And
the second resolution goes on to say, that, said edi-
torial remarks by their connexion with our proceedings
are Consdered by us as an insult to the convention."
Now if we proceed to show that these editorial remarks
had no connection with the proceedings of that canven-
tion, any more than one advertisement has connexion
with another in the same column,-that said remarks
were an entirely sepai ate article, and appeared as such
inninely-nine hunnlredlhs if not ."'! I,',.,,i.ltlh, of the
impressions, and intended to be si in rill 0 .1fi,,i, ilr,'n
we shall establish the fact that the whole eroind on
which the convention profess to consider oar remarks
aS an insult to the convention," is removed.
In the first place, the paper was made up by ouc
foreman, Mr. Moses, who, by the way, is no political
partisan, without any direction from the publisher or
any one else ; the aiticle was placed in the .inrie col-
uum with lthie proceedings of the Convention, and by
an inadvertency of his, the rule which should have
separated them, was left out. The easily hour at which
the Southern mail now arrives, obliges us to strike off
a few ilipressions before they are iuvised, and some-
times before corrected, and it is possible in the present
instance,lhat Mr I'mli., on 'whom we charge the pater-
nity of the resolutions, may have come into possession
of an ,., ..r..-.d rep. He is not a subhscber to our
paper, and never was and of course has no right'to
complain of the way and manner in which we conduct
it, provided we publish nothing libellous on ilni, in
whih raise the law is open. Once in a while a man
comes into the office to beg or by a paper on the eve-
ning before publication, from a neighboring tavern.
who, %%. -.,pp- comes in Mr E.'s I.ihalf, and sonin-
times a e*..p3 is obtained surreptitiously, as must have
been the case in the present instance, if obtained at aill;
hut if il'is is his play, to take advantage of an uncor-
rected copy,to set a whole convention by the ears,& by
holding up this copy to their view,cause them to believe
themselves insulted, and to pass on us resolutions of
censure, we shall take care to give strict orders that in
future no more copies be delivered to anyone until the
morning of publication.
A mran has as much mt;hl to correct his proof, as to
correct a slip of the tongue, and we ,l,n.nriy aver that
in revising onur' paper, and perceiving lie omission of
the rule between the articles, we inrlimstely or.Ilerd
it to be inserted, and it was done. And we now call
on the members of the convention, ard on our readers
generally, to recur to our papers of the ,14th ult. and
they will see that the same kind 1f r ,e ;- inseri.d be-
tween the two articles in questi-n, as i1 inserted be-
tween other niticles of a totally dil,-r.ima eh'r. .cir.-
Wo have now shown that in point of fact the proceed-
ings ait the convention of th'e Sith in our paper of thie
14lh ult. wete not under the caption of the Seabrookt
fight," as slated in the resolution ; and, as iThe alleged
connexion of the editorial remarks with the proceeding*,
'of the convention, furnish i, 1.r,.ind on which said re-
marks are taken by the convention as an insult, we in-
fer that if this matter had been set in its proper light
the convention could not have passed lthia resolution al-
luded to.
As we have already supposed, Mr Elwyn mightbave
obtained a copy before coirection, and ifsohe must
have known that the editorial remarks and the procee-
di'gs of the convention were not intended to be.con-
nected, and his taking advantage of this inadvetency
to shield himself uuder the wing of the conveuiion,with
the pretence that we intended it as an insult to them, is
a meanness unworthy of a sran who pretends to the
standing Mr Elwyn professes to occupy. Using the
words of Capt. Ro've, "'wos di-j,.e the man who woult
do it."'
Bat the second Resolution says:-" The said edito-
rial remarks, SO FAR AS THEY ];r.L. I [ TO THE
CONVENTION, are a tissue of falselthods. from be-
ginning to end." The wards in capitals, we are in-
formed by a member, wire inserted by way of amend
meat, to make them go down : the Conarniioa could
not swallow it, as it came from the engineerr ; they
were not prepared to say, that no -uch incidents as are
related in the Gazette, occurred :n ha I lanse before lbs
organization of the Ci-,'sn.lion but only, that the On-
ventioniad :].oling to do with it. \\ ell, Ve hove not
pretended that it was done in convention, and lest oat
'remarks should be so construed, w'e declared in oar
very next paper, at the suggestion of a tirsmnber of the
Convention, that it took pLci/.. .,e, and irjl raf:er ihe
or r in; ed by amendnient,-" sofar as t.1'i, relulae o the Cun-
vertion,"-rner,,Jrrl ii whole of the d,:rlarstion a mere

lion with it. Wa\\ intrnded the L,:h simply for the En-
gineer himself, ana Iuchi J.t;tatewrs as went in his train


to interfere in its conc-na I uis ilioUt nolhotny. We
wanted the Cnni'nlion io he left to do its own wolk,
and but for thd m.dil.qir-, l-vho aont to meddle with
what-did nti belong ion them, we never should have
had orcj.-,.n to } u wImd on thi subject.
As I.' lie awuiil, of lihe Convenn-in, we approved of
thein fit hilmuee, and iWe nalbo curdially approve of the
etBcond, and shill do oui be-l o sustain the nomination.
But if lthie gentlemnen of the Cunnention auppose wears
to hush up such improper mInterference, and submit to
such dictatorial measures from a man who had no more
light ihere than we had, they aie under a mistake.-
\Vo will no' courtenance dictation in ciy srhape;& when
atltempied, whether by individuals or spread Eagle

tnot but be sttnsek at the ingratitude of some of the rail

We would call the attention of hue reader to the let-

We would also call attention to Mr Pierce's speechlt
on the first page, in favor of tho -aruned occupation of

S'(\'. POR rER, OF PNNSYI.VANIA, AND THE

It appears that fr'-lndn the passage of the bill in tile
Pennl-'hiari;a Legislature, to enforce lhe resumption of
specie payments, the Executive of that State has enter-
ed into a negotiation with the same banks for a loan of
$800,000, of which, the U. S. Bank has taken 400,-
000. and the Pennsylvania and Girard Banks, 200,000
eachl ; antd on the moment of the expected passage of
the bill, in the Senate, Gov. Porter forestalls it by a
Message recommending the postponing of the time of
resumption to a reasonable time, which is understood
to imply an indefinite period. We were fearful that
the dangerous and ,overpowering influence of the banks
might arrest Ihis salutary enforcing measure in the Le-
gislatuie, but we were unprepared to hear of this de-
fection in the Governor, whom the honest Democrats
of the State have labored; so ardently to elevate to the
chair of state, and supposed by so doing, they had se-
cured the protection of their rights.
It seems the Governor was unwilling to meet the
ci,,ti.tir,,.'t of vetoing the bill and so hastened the
negotiation of the loan and then sent in his message to
anrest by the influence it might have, the passage of
the bill and thus screen huni,,l" fim the responsibility"
that awaited hinm. Thus the Banks who are notoriously
unable to pay Iheir own creditors are lending money to
the State : Poor, devoted-Batink-ridden Pennsylvania.
SGod help theei-for the men in whom thou hadst confi-
ded have abandoned thee and given thee over to Banks
and stock-jobbers, who prey upon the hard earnings of
thy industrious mechanics and yeomnanry. We extract
the following remark on tha above from the N. Y. Eve.
Post:
"It is time that an-end was put to the delusion -hit
no state can conduct its financial operations, without
the intervention of incorporated banks. The idea that
the states can have nosciredit but by their permission,
has lasted long ertough. Governor I ofer is disposed
to carry it further than it was ever carried before. It
is enough to do homage to them when in the height of
their power and prosperity, hut to abase a :l',,mu-Itt.'
state at their feet when they are broken, helpless, ex.
hausted and itnsolvent, is a snlf.1. I 1 ,.,tt for which
there is no possible excuse. I I.- ',, ,l.l-s worshipi-
ped Bel the Dragon, when his image was perfect and
entire, and before the trick of the priests, who con-
stined the banquet prepared fior him was discovered.
But when their frauds were fully disclosed, and the
image was broken, its worship fell into contempt and
was abandoned. Governor Porter, we suppose, if he
had lived in those days, would have patched up the
fragments of the unlucky idol, and offered the sacri-
fices and banquets as u.u it."

Oar friend Slt,.z-, r o5s ,'. in ,-rror in c llii
himn a administer ; we had always heard himt spoken of
as a minister of the gospel. and supposed he had not
left the profession. There is no harm done, we hope.
lIe also says that the word prejudice," to which
ioe look exception, as applied to ourself, was intended
for lthie Jorurnal. We have not lhe article at hand, to
see fior ourself, but are perfectly satisfied with his die-
claimer.

To tie t-i.-r of thlie Gaizette,
SIR,--'lnotice in the last Journal that I have been
honored with lthie address of friended of Rolation,"
who seems to be mightily offended at me because 1 I
"presumed" to do my duty as a member of the Rota-
torial Conommniutee, and probably thought to annihilate
me by brag. But I amn yet among the living, and will
proceed to lake the bull by the horns.
First, as to his complaint that tha columns of the
Gazette are closed against him ; how Itrue this is I
Inow linot, but as for myself, I think if I should write
common sense I shall be umoe fortunate with either
paper..
2d. [Slillty the horns.] His constellation of great
names, viz. "our Elloyns, Potters, Cushmans and
Treadwells." I think he might well have added his
own name to this illustrious set of leaders, for I am
confident so bright a light cannot long remain under a
bushel. T'hse, evidently., together with the honorable
Committee appointed to inform the President of their
wants, will cake a, ia.flcncn ,itr..., rnnd.,., cannot
fail to make the .ilI.i, rum .,]mn" i. riti.., and per-
haps will almost makeo Itmin a rotationist.
3d. [.Aowby the head.] The c(,,.:r,._. at ithe Cau-
cus. I will endeavor to be thete it loavirg the
time and place to be settled by him. As snch a curi-
osily will undoubtedly bring together a great concourse
of people, there will probably be seconds and surgeons
enough in attendance to render all needful assistance ;
and even Hlonarable Couneillors to back as up with
proctlical advice derived from the Lynch code of honor.
4th, and last.-[Slill by the head ]--A word upon
his parting "1 good bye." I shall treat him with all
Possible humanity, and would say to him, as Uncle
Tobv said to the fly, which had been tickling his nose,
-" Get thee gone, poor devil ,why should I hurt
thee ? There is forin enough in this wide world for
both you and me." W. P. IIYl',

INTERESTING LAw CASE.-In the case of the
U. S. vs. Brodhead, lately tried in Boston, Judge
Davis decided that Brodhead, who was Navy Agent,
was not to be held responsible for the alteration of his
checks by a clerk, [who used to alter them from $50
to 500,] while B. used as was believed, due care in
his business, 'but was deceived by the art of the clerk.
B. was sued as a defiaulter, but the jury gave a verdict
allowing him a small balance against the U. S.

"CORN LAMP OiL.-Th'l'ey are'using in Ohio, corn
lamp oil, which is represented as aflfrding it strong and
brilliant light, and free from the unpleasant smell pro-
duced fiomi fish oils. It is said to beat least one third
cheaper.

QUEEN VICTORAA'S 1 %I F,. F s was expected to
take place on Tuesday last, the 4th day of February.
The London Standard tells a storv of a difference be-
tween her Majesty and Lord Melbuturne, on the subject
of lba provision tn be made fur her husband. The sto-
ry runs that her Majesty wished to have an income
of i.OO, a year settled on her husband. and Lord
Melbourne recommended 60,000. Her Majesty was
affronted, and Lord Mehboimne advised her to consult
the Duke of 5\.1ii,,,t..,a. who cut down the suiE to
30,000 (neat'', n.tli ,111, )

The charges made by the whig prints against the
Postniaster General, because of the delays nf the East-
ern Mail, are unjust. All the difficulty is owing to the
snow storms, which have rendered many roads quite
impassable.

A VERY LONe LEASE.-The editor of the Boston
Times picked up the following advertisement the onher
da y in the street:
Wanted to hbie in sonme pleasant: village in the coun-
ty of Middlesex, a convenient house, and other out bull-
dings, with about five acres of ., t land, with a lease
to expire i,n the day that Hemy l-'i,. is made President
of the United States."

A SIIOWER BATH FOR TIE W1HIGS;
The Columbus E ., ,r,-, (whig) says:
'Slttui.l the contest eventually be between Gen6l
Harrison and Mr Van Buren, and we be forced to
'chose, we have no hesitancy insaying that we will
sustain the latter."
The Boston Courier, (whig) says:
"We moreover doubt whether much winiti ho gain-
ed to the community by exchanging Mr i 1an, Btrju for
any other man."
The /Vew York G. -t/.'. .i whig) says:
"The national convention has'closed :i l.il,-.', at
Harrisburg, and the result is the election of William
Henry Harrison as the party candidate for the p., ,den
cy. It becomes us to. be quiet under every u',.p.'i-
satiotA of providence and politics anrid we are ..
The .Augusta Chronicle, (whig) says:
"Desirous as we have been to support,the opposing
candidate toA Mr Van Buren, we cannot go for lHarrison
-and we think it time and labor spent in vain to at-
tetrpt to elect him."
The Boston Daily Advertiser, (whig) says:
"We confess we have some curiosity to learn which
of the members ofthe delegation from this State, can
claim the honor of having given the vote of the State
for a candidate [Gen. Hairison] who we are well as-
sured is fat front being the choice of the State."
The .New Orleans True Amnerican, (whig) says:
"Henry Clay had thousands of devoted friends-Har-
rison has but a few supporters. We wished the whig
cause success, hut cannot hope for it now."
The Philadelphia Sentinel. (whig) sa3s:
ulissatisfactioni was loudly expressed by many of the
leading whigs in this quarter, on receiving the hews of
the nomination of Gen. Hlarrison by the Harrishurgh
convention and threats of resisting it were freely made."
The Hon. John S. Barhour, one oflthe most distin-
guished whigs in Virginia, has comno out, "tooth and
nail," against the Harrisburgh nomination.
The Richmor.d Enquirer says :
"We have seen several members of the general as-
sembly who have just returned to their constituents. We
undrrltand that many 1;.-. have protested against the
r .,,iinto tot, and several ."f ih,)tit have already abandon-
ed the whig banner. Thero will be -no serious contest
in Virginia.

Tennessee.-The Nashville Union in speaking of
the preposition to hold a Democratic National Con-
%ontion at Baltimore, in'May next, for the purpose of
Snomirnting a candidate for the Presidency and Vice
Presidency, says-
"Pennsylvania falis ;n with it, as do several other
States, and we'venture to speak for T''ennessee, that if
Sa National Convenlion be called as above recornmen-
ded this Stale will cheerfully respond by sending a full
number of delegates. We go for the Convention.
l-'ethaps an earlier day than the fifth of Mlay would be
preferable-but nevertheless we consider a Convention
indispensable."

"It takes me to lick lasses," as lbhe Yankee school-
master said A lien he cowhided the girl.

SUB-MAtRINE EXPLORER.-Mr. Taylo'r,wIho may
well sustain the above atppellation, was at Lo'well
last week, andtt descended into the Concord River,
under the lie, opposite Mr. WVhipple's Powder
Mills, and placed a charge of about twelve pounds
ofpowder, throwing a bo iy of ice of a su-face of
three to four trods, andi two feet in thickness, from
300 to 500 feet into the air! The surface of ice
broken or cracked, was, three times greater than
that thrown up front the river. This must be a
most excellent means of clearing canals in the
spring of the year-from 80 to 100 rods, running
measure, is estimated might be (lone in a (lay.

Reflection's chain lihas bound me;
Sad menri'r, o[t ha- th1iirowVr,
S Lile's early scenes around me:
The hopes and fears, of childhood's years,
Which oin life's current bore me ;
Thloe-c friends itinceri, to nient'ry dear,
S In vision it tn.,d hbc.i're me.
S But soon that vision bright,
Of other da's deparli d.
Fled like a dreant of rttltt,
And left me pensive hearted.
Those hopr. alas I too soon,
Like flmw'rs of Sipring had faded ;
Thoae f, ars like clouds at iauol.,
Eacii fairer prospect shaded,
T The grave their habitation;
No more legntile, with friendship's smile,
Sad hours of separation.
Tl'h-i transient iitons brihit,
S Of other days departed,
II.sve fled like dreams of night,
And left ine pemt-ise hearted.
But there are scenes still fair,
By sorrow never shaded,
An Eden world, where care,
And vwoeis have ne'er invaded.
Where fri'iPtd. shall meet, each other greei,
Beyond a separation,
There sing and shine, in bliss divine, -
Perlicled in salvation.
Thus heavenly visions bright,
Unlike to those departed;
Shine in refulgent light,
To cheer the pensive hearted.

Something to think about.
PAIN'cannot exist but from CORRUPT PA RTICIS
being seated in the identical part where the pain is cx-
perienced. These Corrupt Particles when in greti vui.
ume (quantity) are the POSITIVE CAUSE OF DEATHl
It isa solemn truth that corruption terminates tlie ex i-
tence of ell created beings; the importance of its speedy
removal from the body, when by any causes it has accu-
mulated, is therefore self evident ; not only HEALTH,
but existence, being absolutely endangered by its peas-
9aCe.
Let us then acknowledge that the only sure niurns of
preventing and curing disease, is the speedy icliknal ol
CORRUPT HUMORS from the body. DsEa"O l.eing
only another name for Cor'pU tr ioN, and 'COR.VPTIrtoN
or CORRUPT HuMon brLoirg idilfsitiud in all e.asel as
Impurity of Blood.
PURGATIVE M-EICXriNE, when resorted to in wa.
son, that is while there is sufficient vitality remaining int
the system, will certainly remove corruption ; thus ihe
blood is purified ; thus chronic infirmities and prenialurc
death are prevented ; thus those whose lives are of the
utmost consequence to their country, and families are of-
ten saved.
The importance of this discovery of curing diseases af-
ter ages will do justice: Dr Benj. Brandreth v ill not tihun
be styledan' ignorant pretender.' But that tvill neither
pleese nor offend him ; in the rectitude ol his own acts,
in the quiet of his own conscience, is his reward. And
he gives this his SOLEMN PLEDGE that his medicine
shall be always equal to what it ever has been ; and that
no expense shall be spared in its manufaiture-and the
making of it he attends to personally.
Synopsis of Facts.
Brand, eih's Pills are universally used in every section of
this wide extended country where they are made known-
Upwards of fourteen thousand cases of cure have bren
ertfied as having been effected solely from their use
since the introduction of them into the United Statesas-
tablhshing the fact beyond all doubt that the Brandreth
Pills cure (apparently) the most opposite diseases by the
one simple act of continually evacuating the bowels with
them, until the disease gives way ; therefore, whatever
may be said ofthe THEoaR,the UTILITY of thu PaAc.
TICK ib now BEYOD all DOUBTS.
Dr B. allows that the curative effect depends on the
Purgative Qualities of the Brandrelk Pills; xperi-
enc t a continuation of experiment hor upwards of lorty
years have made them the most judiciously balanced purge
known. Therefore, however long it may be necessary
to persevere with them for the removal of any disease, no
other than good can possibly result from their -use -they
are petfeetly innocent.
The healthy as well as thosesuffering from disease,
should use them-the former to keep their iluod paidr
and vigorous, and the latter to remove all anxious accu-
mulations without weakening the system. The only care
that is required is to procure the Genuine Brandreth
Pills, and that the patrons of these PILLs may not-be
imposed upon by a counterfeit article


SI have had a new

Salt Rheum.
Tll'" I ubzci.bebi hlhring, as he has reason to believe
disrcoi .':.'?d a certain cure for the SALT SHEvUM
and which may also be considered as a remedy for vay
tious other humors, or cutaneous diseases, would inform
the public, that hie has applied for, and received the Uni-
red States Letters Patent, from the proper authority at
the city of W asli4ii1n, for said remedy, whichhe de-
noniutes a Cuiupmund for the cure of the Salt Rheum
and other Diseases of tihe Skin.
He is aware that some may doubt, whether there is
any cure for this disease. He has often doubted in h;m-
ielf. Many thIings however, once deemed impossible
sare now accomplished.
Salt Rheum, he knows by sad experience, is a disorder
not easily conquered. IHe was himself ,-ndfliffy afflic-
ted with it, more than twenty years ; and at times, for
months together, was unable to labor, and sometimes
even to walk, or dress himself. Hie applied to many
physicians ; and tried .various things prescribed by them
and others, but found little relief.
In the spring of le33, being very sick with the disease,
he had well nigh given up all hope of recovery. At that
time, he received from a friend a list ofr article, chiefly
indigenous to our own fields and forests, and admitted to
be good for the complaint, which articles he immediate
ly caused to be procured. With these things, and otith-
ers, which he had found in some degree beneficial, he
Formed a compound, and applied it to the diseased and
distressed frame. In three weeks, he can say with truth
and pleasure ; and he ought to do it with much gratitude,
that he was comparatively well ; and shortly aftei was
restored to perfect health, so far as regards Salt Rheum
and continues so to this day ;-a period of five year.
Hundreds of persons, afflicted by this previous malady,
have made use of this medicine ; and, as far as he can
learn, it has rarely failed to give satisfaction. In some
cases its good -ffects have been truly wonderful.
He will not state, as too many do, that his COM-
POUND is a cure for all diseases; but he has reason to
believe that it is not only a cure for Salt Rheum but good
for all rumors, such as Ring Worm, Scald Head, Shin
gles, Lep'osy, &c. &c. It has also been used for the
Piles, with the best effects.
No person need fear any evil from it, however old, or
young, or feeble ; for it is simple, and may be applied
with safety.
The following certificates and recommendations show
how effectual Ibis remedy is, when properly applied,
viE
From the Rev. Joseph T. Hawes, of Edgecomb, Me
To all whom it may concern.
This certifies that my wife, after having been afflicted
with the Salt Rheum, at times, especially in the winter
seasons, for more than twelve years applied, About one
year ago to Mr William B. Trufant, of Bath for a cer-
tain ointment and medicine which hlie had advertised as
a cure for this dreadful disease. She obtained it, and
used it for several weeks agieeably to the prescription of
Mr Tirufant, when to her great joy she rlund hIerself, to
appearance perfectly cured. Sihe hais had some small
symptoms of the disease once since, but a brief applica-
tion oftthe ointment, &c. has removed them. ThIere can
be but little doubt I think, that a more thorough appli-
cation, at first would have effected a radical cure. I'hat
she has received great benefit from the use of this medi-
cine. I have never doubted for a moment ; though at the
time she began using it, 1 was skeptical. Though I wil
yield to no one in my hatred to quackery, I do most cor-
dially recommend ''Mr Trufant's Patent Medicine for the
Salt Rheum," to all who are afflicted with this-dreadful
malady, believing that if it should not in all cases affect
a permanent cure, it would at least greatly mitigate this
dreadful disease, and therefore prove to be a public ben-
efit. J. T. HAWES.
N. Edgecomb, April 15.-1838.
From Mr lHuston Stinson, of Georgetown, Me.
This is to certify, that my wife has been sorely afflic-
ed with Salt Ihturt,. at times, from a child ; and often
for months in succession, so that she was unable to be
about lhoase : and was thus deprived of nearly all the
comforts of life.
During this time, she made use of almost every thing,
which had been recommended to her, as good for the
complaint, but found little relief; and had formed the
conclusion that there was no help for her.
In the year 1837, she and her child, (six months old,)
were so badly afflicted, that they had but little rest, day
or night ; the child being almost covered with sores, and
had been in this state for several months.
A brother of mine, knowing the distress of my family,
advised me, by all means, to make trial of I'rufant's
Compound for Salt Rheum. Agreeably to his advice, I
purchased a quantity of it, and applied it as directed ;
and I cLan salely say, that in two or three days they found
gf real relief; and in four weeks time, the disorder entire-
ly disappeared, and, since that time, they have been free
from all humors whatever, and enjoy good health, and, I
have reason to believe, are perfectly cured. I have lost
two children with the same complaint. Had the same
medicine been applied to them, I have good reason to
believe, they would -now have been living. 1 value the
Compound highly, as a remedy for that awful disease,
and, with pleasure, would recommend it to all, who may
be afflicted with it. HUSTON STINSON.
Georgetown, May 19th, 1838.
Certificate of Mr Joel Howe, of West Prospect, Me.
This is to certify, that. I have a daughter, who was
very much afflicted with Salt Rheum, for five years. I
procured for her Mr William B. ''Trufant's medicine, by
applying which, she obtained relief, and, fdOr six months
past, has enjoyed comfortable health, JOEL HOWE.
West Prospect, April 12. 1838.
Extract of a letter from a gentleman ia Milton, Mass
"MR WILLIAM B TBUF-ANT,
DEAK SI e:-I am happy to state, that your medicine
for the cure of Salt Rheum has been oh essential service,
although I have used but one paper of the barks,and one
box of ointment. I find mysell very much relieved; and
I see not why the second paper, which I am now using,
will not entirely effect a cure. My complaint has been
of long standing; and at times very painful, my hands
being nearly useless.
"I am satisfied that your medicine is highly useful ;
from its effects on myself and on another individual for
whom I po reared some ; and I shall therefore recom-
mrend it to those afflicted, on every occasion, most cheer-
fully. Yours truly, ARIEL WORK.
Milton, Mass. April 281i, 1838."
The undersigned inhabitants, of Bath, certify that wi
have used tile medicine, prepared by William B. Trufant
as a remedy for the Salt Rheum. and have found it the
best we haye ever known ; and having no "doubt that t
in a valuable discovery, take the liberty to recommend
it to all who are afflicted with that inveterate malady.
