ADJOURNMENT OF CONGREss.-There can be
no doubt whatever of the passage, by the Senate,
of Mr. EvANs',joint resolution fixing May 20th
as the day for the adjournment of Congress.-
When it reaches the House, the sincerity of past
demonstrations in that body, in favor of an early"
adjournment, will be fairly tested. The result, I
am confident, will prove that no adjournment of
Congress takes place until late in June, or early
in July.
Value of Circumstantial Evidence.-A proof
of the very great uncertainty of circumstantial
testimony is shown in the case of Michael Fitz-
gerald and wife, found guilty some months since,
at Troy, N. York, of burglary, and sent to prison.
They have since been proved innocent, and have
obtained their pardon from the Governor.

each and every case tried before him. The Court
to sit as often as the Judge may deem necessary
fbr the transaction of business. The Marshal of
the city is. to be the ministerial officer, and the
City Clerk the Clerk of the said Court; both
giving security in the sum of $500 for the faith-
ful performance of their duties. They are to
continue in office until their successors are
elected, and receive the same fees for their ser-
vices as the.sheriff and clerk of the county courts
are allowed.
The utility of such a tribunal is universally
acknowledged, and we therefore hope that it will
be speedily organized, fof the better government
and security of our city.

(c- The following appointments in this district
were made a few days before the adjournment of
the Legislative Council:
PORT WARDENS for the Port of Apalachicola--
Benjamin Ellison, B. F. Nourse, H. B. Stone,
James F. Farrior, E. J. Wood.
INSPECTORS Or LUMBER for Franklin county--
Peter Hobart, John Lucas.
JUSTICES OF THE PEACE foi Franklin county--
Jos. W. Hammctd, Jas. Ruan, James P. Roan.

SETTLEMENT OF TEXAs.-We learn from the
Mobile Herald that Gen. Charles Fenton Mercer,
formerly of Virginia, and more recently of Flor-
ida, has entered into contracts with the govern-
ment of Texas, by which he obtains from that
Republic a grant of two tracts of land; one em-
bracing 16,400, and the other 8,000 square miles.
The grants are made on condition that the lands
be settled.
DEATH OF GEN. LEWIs.-The New York papers
mention the death of Gen. Morgan Lewis, aged
ninety years. He was the Grand Master of Ma-
sons in the State of New York, He was, also,
President General of the General Society of the
Cincinnati. His funeral took place on the 10th
inst., attended by a large military escort, and an
immense concourse of citizens.
SMUGGLED GoODS.-The cloths seized on board
the Oxford and Montezuma, packet ships, were
sold at auction, by order of the United States
Marshal, and between $17,000 and $18,000 were
realized from them. This will pay portion of the
expense of the trials. The Collector's share will
be about $4000.
*... COMMERCE OF BOSTON.-The number of foreign
arrivals at this port from January 1st to March 31st,
1A44, was 222. The number of foreign arrivals from
January 1st to March 31st, 1843, was 138. Increase
of foreign arrivals, 84. The revenue from January
1st to March 31st, 1844, is estimated at $1,310,000.
The revenue for the corresponding time of the
last year was $589,740 12. Increase of revenue,
$720,259 88.

FOREIGN NEws.-The packet ship Queen of
the West, Capt. Woodhouse, arriived at NewYork
on the 10th, from Liverpool, with advices to the
6th ult. inclusive. No news of importance.
Cotton remained without change, but firm. On
the 6th, previous to the sailing of the Queen of
the West, two thousand bales had been sold at
the previously quoted rates.
The revolution in Portugal had not been put
down.
Nothing new from Ireland. The 'Dublin Na-
tion; one of the convicted papers, had, since the


State Trials, published the most violent articles.
It declared that Ireland must be a nation,'

NEW ORLEANS, April 7.-Removal of Judge
Elliott.-The annexed result of the impeach-
ment of this individual, we copy from the Picay-
une. It is a case which, however flagrant, is
not altogether a novel one, if we bear in mind
the accusations against many New York Judges,
pending almost every election since 1834. The
cases are parallel in enormity, though in the lat-
ter, conviction was not so earnestly sought.
The Court found Judge Elliott guilty of the
four articles of impeachment preferred against
him-the majority being on two of the articles
10 yeas and 4 nays, and on the other two, 11 yeas
and 3 nays. They then unanimously resolved
that Judge Elliott be forthwith removed from his
office, and that it be considered vacant from this
the 6th day of April.
We may add that they also unanimously re-
solved that this verdict should not, nor was it
meant to affect the legality or validity of the cer-
tificates of naturalization issued by Judge Elliott;
and further, that six days time be given for those
who dissented from the majority to enter their
protest in writing.
"About this case we have avoided saying a
word since its commencement. It is now over,
and what we say cannot, of course, affect the
issue. We have watched 'the trial with some
degree of interest, and our opinion is, that the
verdict of the High Court of Imnpeachment is a
most righteous judgment, and the Senate of Lou-
isiana in rendering it, showed, as we said of them
on a former occasion, that they are fearless of
power, and beyond corruption.'"

S ARRIVAL OF GEN. THOMPSON.
GEN. WADDY THOMPSON, late Minister of the
, United States to Mexico, arrived in this city yes-
teiday, on his return. He came in the U. S. brig
s Bainbridge, Commander Mattison which sailed
From Vera Cruz on the 1st inst.
S Gen. Thompson, previous to departure, visited
Santa Anna at his country seat, and obtained, by
his earnest solicitation in their behalf, the libera-
f tion of the remainder of the Texan prisoners taken
in September 1842, at San Antonio de Bexar.--
Gen. T. speaks very highly of the handsome con-
duct of the Mexican Chief in granting him this
r request, which was not official, Gen. T. having
resigned his place as Minister and already taken
) leave of the Government.. This was not the first
request of the kind which Gen. T. had occasion
to prefer. He had already been instrumental in
procuring the liberation of a number of the prison-
ers who were taken at San Antonio, as well as of
Several of those who capitulated at Mier.
Gen. Thompson, we understand, will remain but
a day or two in the city.
The number of the prisoners whom our late
Minister had the pleasure on his departure to
procure the liberation of, is thirty-five; of these,
thirty-one came on the bainbridge, the remainder
preferring to continue for the present in Mexico.
These prisoners had been confined about eighteen
months, mostly at the Castle of Perote. They
express their gratitude and estimation of Gen. T.
in the strongest terms. The Texan prisoners still
remaining in Mexico are the survivors of the un-
fortunate Mier capitulation, about one hundred,
as we are told, in number.,
The following list comprises the names of those
who were released on the occasion of General
Thompson's farewell, viz.:
Wm. Bugg, Jas. H. Brown, Edw. Brown, T.

nies, by their erroneous and wicked system of in-
suring vessels according to THEIR AGE, instead of
the faithfulness of their construction, hesitate not
readily to insure, and thus encourage the building
of ships in a very slight manner, to last only for a
short period of time, and of course very unsafe for
those who peril their lives on the stormy ocean."

FRENCH SPOLIATIONS.--The first decisive ac-
tion, on the part of the House Committee, on For-
eign Relations, towards a public demonstration of
.its views upon this subject, so important to a large
number of the citizens of New England and New
York, was made in Committee on Monday last.-
It was then decided that a report should be sub-
mitted; and, on Monday next, the subject will
again come up in Committee, to which time its
further consideration has been postponed. The
chairman will introduce at that meeting a report
on the subject, which meets the approval of the
gentleman at present in the city, representing the
interests of the numerous claimants, and therefore
cannot be otherwise than a favorable report.--
Should it meet the approval of a majority of the
Committee, of which there can be no doubt, the
same will then be reported to the House without


delay. As to any final disposition of this subject,
whether favorable or unfavorable, during the pre-
sent session, or the present Congress, I have no
sort of expectation. My observations lead me to
believe that if subjected to the test the whole sub-
ject will be thrown overboard by the House.-
However, other and new influences may have a,
favorable effect hereafter, and better councils may
prevail.
80- We learn that last week the whole coun-
try above here was inundated with water. The
Black Water river, at Col. Morton's, rose twenty
or thirty feet above its usual level, although the
rise and fall of the tide is sensibly observed there.
The flood swept away every thing; it is said there
is scarcely one of the numerous saw mills on the
Black Water and Escambia, buit has been ruined,
and the destruction of cattle and hogs is thought
to be immense.--Pensacola Gaz.
PIRATE BRIG.-A brig-of-war belonging to
Com. Brown's blockading squadron before Monte-
video, was sent to assist a French ship in distress,
and after having plundered her, set out on a
piratical cruise on her own account The admi-
ral has declared her a pirate.--JV Y Sun.

XJ Hopeful Prospect.-The Macon Messenger,
of the 4th inst., has the following:
"It will be observed, from an advertisement in
another column, that a meeting of our citizens is
called by the Mayor, at the Court House, this af-
ternoon at 4 o'clock. The subject that will be
submitted to the Meeting is of primary importance,
being the financial condition of the City. We ave
now incumbered with a heavy debt, amounting in
all to some two hundred and seventy thousand
dollars. The interest is daily accumulating with-
ont any prospect of our being able to pay it, and
if sonrrarrangement be not speedily made to re-
lieve us, we shall be hopelessly bankrupt. We
learn that the City Authoritieshave some conside-
rations upon the subject to submit to the meeting.
We hope there will be a general attendance."

s DEATH OF A MUbSE.
BY SACHARISSA.
As I was taking my usual evening walk upon
the beach, I fell into a train of romantic thought;
s and upon seeing the gentle surf rolling upon the
sandy shore; the glittering fish playing in the
undulating&tide; and the white sea gulls losing
themselves in the distant clouds; I involuntarily
. wished, that the muse of William Sydney could
be there, to describe the whole scene in liquid
and pathetic verse. No sooner had the wish
passed my mind, than I heard a deep groan close
by to where I stood. I -trned round rather saud
denly, and to my great surprise, saw a young fe-
i male sitting upon the trunk of a fallen pine. I
saluted her in the oriental manner, and. begging
her to excuse my impolite curiosity, I desired to
know why she appeared, so care-worn and deject-
ed. She sighed, yet with a smile, informed me,
t that she had been driven frdm lher home, but that
she would soon become accustomed to the horror
of' the wild woods, and to the fury of the skies.
f I could not suppress the tear that I felt trembling
in my eye, when I saw how patiently she bore
her afflictions, and how little she seemed to think
of her poverty. She had a mild blue eye and a
sweet tender lip, and while her undulating ringlets
shaded a thoughtful, melancholy countenance,
her thin and faded garments convinced me of her
innocent simplicity. I told her that my feelings
were excited, and hoped that she would not be
offended if I asked her name. "-I am ithe muse
of William Sydney," said she, but this evening,
while I was singing my verses tob Esculapius,
I saw his cheeks begin to glow, and his eyes to
melt with love, and being overpowered with
passion, he was about to fold me in his arms,
when Mammon came blustering up to where we
stood, and giving Esculapius a kick, with a charge
to attend to his business, he turned to me and
calling me a worthless huzzy, bid me never to
show my face in his presence again. I thought
my heart would break to be treated so roughly,
and while the tears were rolling down my burn-
ing cheeks, I heard Esculapius lamenting the loss
of my society. O0 Mammon,' said he, How
can you be so cruel to so fair a maiden! whoi1 now
will cheer me after the toils of the day, add pour
consolation into my sorrowful heart ? When Cupid
marked me as his prey, that sweet creature whom
you have driven from me, has smiled my pains
away, and with her fingers embalmed with spices
and myrrh, she has closed and healed the tortur-
ing wounds. If friends proved unfaithful, and
fortune fickle, the melody of her voice and the
smiles of her love would soon cause me .to lose
my pain in the excess of my pleasure. If all the
world appeared a desolate waste, she would cull
the freshest and most fragrant flowers, and scat-
tering them in profusion around me, would beg
me to consider that there were many sweets even
in the paths of sorrow; and when you had de-
serted me, she would point to a radiant pathway
through the skies, where she said no worshipper
of Mammon ever entered, but that those who
"-ursued it turthe end, found treasurdk-of irinihite
riches." While the Muse was thus speaking, I
heard a fearful roaring of the sea, and rush of
waters behind me, and turning round, I saw
images of piratical vessels darkening the tide;
grains of gold glittering in the surf; and image's
of ghosts, with flowing silk and costly apparel
bedecked with dazzling pearls and diamonds. I
knew instantly that Mammon was not far off. As
the vision faded, I turned again to speak to the
Muse; but saw, nothing but the pine tops bend-
ing to a whirlwind in the distance, as a sweet voice
fell to the earth saying, ,,I am gone to my hope
in the skies." Her thin garments were left u on
the pine where she sat, and with a sad heart I pur-
sued my walk, I thought immediately of Elijah's
mantle; but as fashions are so fickle, I found that
none of the garments would fit Ime. Do times
change men, or do men change the times? It
may be possible, Mr. Editor, that women change
both.

ON THE
PREVENTION OF MALARIAL DISEASES.
NUMBER III.
The atmosphere is observed, from its sensible
effects, to have a powerful and permanent influ.
ence over the terrestrial creation. It is recog-
nized as an agent in producing, and as the grand
recipient of the gaseous products of nature's ope-
rations. It is the perpetually-working laboratory,
in which the manifold processes of volatility are
performed, and in which the works of spontaneous
distillation, sublimation, composition and decom-
position, pursue their eternally recurring revolu-
tions. In addition to the well known chemical
elements of its composition, its contents are the
mineral vapours from the earth, the products ol
combustion and respiration, and of the volatile
exuvie--whether gaseous or fluid-of animal and
vegetable decomposition. Although acting with
great energy upon the inanimate materials of our
planet, its influence is more important to man,
and is more conspicuously discerned, in the two
great classes of animal and vegetable life. To
animal life it is indispensable; without it, respi-
ration is impossible; all its other functions must
cease, and death be inevitable. But this fluid,
so indispensable to the enjoyment of vitality-
this most excellent canopy-this brave, over-
hanging firmament-this majestic roof fretted
with golden fire "-is the direct source of the
greater portion of the ills that flesh is heir to."
Observation, in every part of the earth, shows
'that human health can only be maintained, in a
sound state, by a certain degree of chemical pu-
rity in the elements of the atmosphere. The
proportion of its constituents essential to this
purity rarely exists; and, although we do not
well understand in' what the impurities consist,
or the principles on which they act, yet their in-
fluence in inducing, at least, those general dis-
eases termed epidemical, which-though varied
in every climate, are common to mankind-is
generally acknowledged.
Notwithstanding the morbid changes and states
of the respirable medium which induce epidem-
ical diseases appear, hitherto, to have eluded the
researches of philosophers, yet they have been
always supposed to arise from one of two causes:
"either some temporary peculiarity in the con-
stitution of the atmosphere itself, or a mixture of
adventitious deleterious matters with it." The
difference between these causes is of the highest
importance, and involves the dearest interests of
the human family. If epidemical diseases are
dependantt on the former, it is scarcely possible
to conceive that they admit of control, while, if
they are generated by the latter; they may be pre-
vented by a simple application of human agency.
But the subject, in all its bearings, is one of the
most difficult to elucidate that can be presented
by any science, not only on account of the appa-
rent variety and impalpable nature of the causes
themselves, but also because of the mysterious
action which they exert on the living system.
In the early ages of medicine, the general suf-
frage of physicians seemed to be in favor of the
opinion that a change of the properties of the
air, independent of the mixture of any accidental
impurities, gave rise to all epidemical diseases.
And it is an opinion existing at this day, that
certain states or vicissitudes of the atmosphere,
particularly in its temperature, hygrometric, or
electrical condition, may produce sporadic ail-
ments, if not some of general prevalence. But
it is more probable that atmospheric heat, or
moisture, acting alone or together, and even
though alternating with cold, is not capable of
producing an epidemic, and, perhaps, not one of
those forms of disease which are commonly as-
cribed to these causes. To effect such a result,
it isaecessa th-ati -aw t -er- rYt-e-wdr ter-
of the atmosphere 'itself, independent of either
mere temperature or moisture. That alterna-
tions or fluctuations in these phenomena exercise
a great influence in the production of diseases,
admits of no doubt; but alone, they can only act
as predisposing and exciting causes. Besides,
both observation and research, as well as reason-
ing, assure us that, during the prevalence of epi-
demics, the atmosphere always receives some
extraneous accessions, other than either heat or
moisture. This view of the subject is more in
harmony with the true system of philosophizing,
inasmuch as it shows a distinct relation between
the effect and a cause, and brings us nearer to the
discovery of the nature of atmospheric accessions.
Chemical analyses of the atmosphere rarely
present it to our senses as formed, simply, of
those gaseous elements considered essential to its
composition. Acting upon every species of min-
eral-upon every kind and state of animal and
vegetable bodies-the air we breathe generally
comes to us loaded with various heterogeneous
matters, which may be supposed to include every
form and species of gaseous combination known
to us, and others which have as yet eluded the
researches of the most patient investigators.--
Some specific combination of these gaseous pro-
ducts, possessing peculiar qualities, and imparting
a peculiar vitiation to the air, is undoubtedly the
cause of malarial-endemical and epidemical dis-
eases. The evidence of this appears in the an-
alogy, or identity, all over the earth, of the sev-
eral forms of disease referred to malaria for their


origin. And it is also probable, that modified
assemblages of extraneous exhalations are the
true causes of the various epidemics that are not
commonly assigned to malaria, and of all diseases
supposed to originate in vicissitudes of tempera-
ture and redundant aerial moisture. But as these
combinations undergo constant decomposition,
and form new compounds as soon as dissolved,
even under the process of analization, it may al-
ways be impossible to define the kinds or quan-
tities of matters necessary to produce different
epidemics, or the variety of other ailments de-
pendent upon vitiation of the atmosphere. How-
ever, unsatisfactory as have been antecedent dis-
coveries, it is still useful to be able to establish
the position, that, from the contemporaneous ex-
istence of epidemics with peculiar conditions of
the atmosphere, they are undoubtedly connected
with extraneous aerial absorptions.


APALACHIOOLA, SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1844.,


0(O-We are compelled, for a few weeks, to de.
vote the space on our 'first page hitherto allotted
to miscellaneous articles, poetry, &c., to the laws
'of the Territory passed at the last session of the
Legislative Council. Our readers, however, for
the most part, will be as well pleased with this
arrangement as the other; for the local laws, as
well as those of a general nature, have never yet
been sufficiently kept before the people" of this
territory.-We also publish in another part of the
paper th6 important and salutary law, relative to
our own city-establishing and organizing the
Mayor's Court.

CoNGRESs.-This body continues-like other
great bodies-to move slow. The Tariff still
appears to be the engrossing topic, and is likely
to remain so to the close of the session.
In the Senate, on the .9th, the' nomination of
the Hon. WM. R. KING, of Alabama, as Minister
to France, and that of Gov. SHANNON, of Ohio,
as Minister to Mexico, were confirmed. Mr. K.
has been longer in the Senate than any other
member of that body. He was Secretary of Le-
gation at St. Petersburg, when Mr. Pinckney, of
Maryland, was our Minister there.
The Texas annexation treaty, as revised by Mr.
Calhoun, it is said, will be laid before the Senate
in a few days.
The correspondent of the Charleston Courier
says: Mr. BERRIEN'S speech on the subject of
the Tariff has been looked for with much inte-
rest. He spoke to-day on the subject of the re-
port from the Committee of Finance, adverse to
'Mr. McDuFFIE's bill. His argument in the first
place, was to show that the Senate did not pos-
sess the constitutional power to originate such a
bill as this, inasmuch as it was a bill for raising
revenue. The discussion would be profitless,
and the measure inexpedient, he said, if it could
pass. I In the course of his remarks, he discarded
the doctrines of free trade, and shewed their ab-
surdity in regard to this country. His principle
was this, ,'Reciprocal commerce with all nations;
perfectly free trade at home.' This was not the
time'to meddle with the Tariff, when the country
was embarrassed with political questions at home,
and in a critical condition in regard to its foreign
relations. The benefits of the present Tariff, he
contended, were largely shared by the South. It
had been followed by an increase in the price of
our staples, by a reduction of the prices of neces-
sary articles for the planter, by an adequate rev-
einue, and a revival of public credit, of commerce
and navigation, and of general confidence among
men. Throughout his speech he was listened to
with profound attention."
Mr. MODUFFIE took exception to the statement
.made by Mr. Berrien, of the free trade doctrine
held in this country. He asked Mr. B. whether
Saany one here had advocated free trade in the
sense represented by him, viz. an abolition of du-
ties. Mr. B., in reply, contended that the free
trade doctrines, as contended for here and in the
country, led to that result. Mr. McDuffie denied
that any one here had advocated such a doctrine.
Another member has gone to his long home;
Mr. Moore, of Ohio, died at his lodgings on the
7th ult. The usual proceedings were enacted,
and the House adjourned.
A memorial from Syracuse, N.-Y., was pre-
sented in the Senate in favor of the annexation
of Texas.
The Secretary of the Treasury has sent in his
report on commerce and navigation, with a num-
ber of items of information. The exports for the
last nine months ending June, 1843, amounted to
$84,346,480, of which 77,000,000 were domestic,
and 7,000,000 of foreign articles; of thedomestic,
60,000,000 were exported in American vessels,
and nearly 18,000,000 in foreign vessels; of the
foreign articles, $4,945,817 were exported in
American vessels, and $1,606,880 in foreign ves-
selg. The imports in the same time amounted
to $64,500,000; of this $50,000,000 were im-
ported in American, and 14,000,000 in Foreign
Vessels. The tonnage entered during the nine
months, was 1,443,523, & that cleared, 1,523,949.
The total tonnage built in the U. ,in 9 months,
is 27,275,31; the enrolled, 36,342,5.
Hon. J. M. N'ILES has arrived in Washington;
some of the papers say that his health is still bad,


and his mind impaired, and that he will not
probably take his seat in the Senate.
"The bill to establish a Naval Depot at Mem-
phis was taken up and discussed; the substitute
ofered by Mr. Breese, to appropriate $5000 to-
wards making a survey and determine on the fit-
-neaof the site was rejected, and the original as
reported passed to a third reading..
Toie President has sent in a messe, in answer
to a solution of the house, explanatory of his
acti in regard to the Rhode Island troubles.

N)w YTOR CHARTERELECTIONS.-The complete
returns of the election beld in the city of New
