""": 1 METHODIST CHURCH. / ..
The proposition recently made to ereb a
Church, for the use of this denomination in this
city, has been well received. The subscription
is nearly filled, and the edifice will be erected
during the ensuing season. We are glad to see
this spirit of liberality among the people of Apa-
lachicola, to aid in disseminating principles of
Christianity, so much in accordance with our
republican form of government. There is nothing
exclusive with the Methodists in their forms of
worship, or intercourse with other denomina-
tions-they extend the right hand of fellowship
to all Christians, and are ever on the alert'to
combat vice and wickedness, undeterred by the
sacrifice of either wealth or comfort in their
course of usefulness in reforming and regenerat-
ing the world. It may be truly said of this de-
nomination of Christians, that it forms the ad-.
vance guard in moral reform, in this, and other
countries. ., ....--
BANK OF FLORIDA.-We have seen nothing
with regard to the condition of this Bank, since
the letter of Mr. Graham, explaining the reasons
of the failure of the agent to pay the drafts;
which was,'it appears, to defend the present owners
from loss on account of the issues of the late
President and Directors. Whether the protested
draughts have been paid, or ithe funds provided
therefore, we have not learned. However good
the Bank may be, it will be impossible hereafter
for it to obtain a circulation either in this or any
other part of the Territory, unless its notes are
redeemable in specie at the will of the holder.
IRWINTON BRIDGE BANK.-This institution
which has for several years formed a large part
of the circulation along our river and almost the
entire one at Eufaula, suspended payment a few
days ago and closed its doors. The ," Southern
Shield," a paper published in that town, says,
that an investigation into its affairs is now going
on by a committee of the citizens and directors,
and a suspension of opinion is asked until the re-
sult is made known. It is rumored, that the di-
rectors intend to call in instalments on the stock
to enable them to redeem the circulation. If they
can effect this, it will be more than any one ex-
pects, and quite a new era in the history of mod-
ern banking. Whenever a Bank closes its doors,
it will be in vain to expect entire solvency on the
part of the corporation; stockholders are seldom
willing to take any part of the loss, and where
suspension occurs from losses on cotton specula-
tion, as we presume this one was, it is usually for
too large an amount to be settled up without a
ruinous compromise to the creditors.
Another .Murder in JVew York.-On Monday
the 15th inst., the Coroner held a post mortem
examination on the body of Eliza A. Munson, a
young'female of respectable connexions, who re-
side in New Haven, Conn. The facts are these:
the unfortunate girl was seduced under the pro-
mise of marriage, and finding herselfenreiiete, was
induced, to hide her shame, to apply to Madame
Restell, and submit to her nefarious operation.
Since then she has been gradually sinking and
died on the 14th. The New York.Plebian, in
speaking of this notorious woman, says--
"It is surprising that this female physician
should have been thus long permitted to follow her
inhuman profession in this enlightened city, with-
out having met with that punishment due to the
crime. It is revolting to human nature, when we
reflect that not only those unfortunate females that'
have been seduced from the paths of virtue, but
many living in lawful wedlock, have applied to the
female physicians in this city for the purpose of
procuring an abortion. It is high time that this
system of murdering should be arrested. We hope
for the credit of our city and the credit of the sex
that the law will be rigorously applied in the
case of the unfortunate deceased."
Mr. Editor:-Herewith I hand you a letter,
received by last mail, from the Hon. DAVID LEVY,
in answer to a communication addressed to him
by me, at a request of the County Court, made
at its last session.
Mich praise is due to Mr. L. for his success
in this matter, which is owing to his indefatiga-
ble exertions. The request has often been made
of Congress before Mr. Levy's time, but failed
from some unknown cause.
Respectfully,

WASHINGTON, April 16, 1844.
Sir -I had the pleasure to receive your letter
of 6th April, inclosing the resolutions of the
County Court of Franklin County, respecting the
School Lands. I have the satisfaction to inform
you, that, realizing the importance of obtaining
some provision for your county, by which a
School fund might be raised, I brought the sub-
ject before the last Congress, but failed of suc-
cess. Immediately upon the opening of this
session, I again brought it forward, using for the
purpose an old resolution of the Legislature,
which I found nad been presented long before my
first election. I am happy to be able to say,
that I succeeded in getting a bill reported which
I proposed, which comprehended not only Frank-
lin county, but of the whole Territory, and to
aid in its passage, I extended it to the other two
Territories, although it is in fact important to
them, as there are no grants or conflicting titles
in either Iowa or Wisconsin. This bill had passed
the House before the date of your letter, and has
been reported favorably in the Senate, without
amendment, so that there can be no doubt of its
passage. Under its provisions you will be able to
locate any where in the whole land district, an
equivalent number of sections for all those of
which the townships are deprived, by reason of
,,the Forbes' Grant. With respect,
Your ob't serv't,
D. LEVY.

For the Commercial Advertiser.
ANNEXATION OF TEXAS.
JMr. Editor:-The proposition to annex Texas
to the territory of the United States, is at pre-
sent engrossing much of the public attention, and
if report speaks correct, a treaty to that effect has
already been signed by the high contacting par-
ties of the two 'executive governments, which, in
a few days, will be submitted to the Senate of the
United States. In regard to the probable fate of
that treaty, there are many surmises and conjec-
.tures. The friends of the measure are quite san-
guine of securing the constitutional majority (two
thirds) in its favor, while the opponents are
equally sanguine ot effecting its defeat.
The grounds upon which annexation is urged
so strenously at the present time, have not as yet
been made public; it would therefore, in my
opinion, be premature to enter into a full discus.
sion of the subject at this early period. There
,is one point however, which seems in a measure
to have been overlooked by those who are bent
upon making political capital out of the question,
,to which I wish to invite the attention of your
readers.
From the manner in which the proposition is
announced in certain quarters-the charge of
plots and conspiracies-the threatened dissolution
of the Union, &c., &c., one would be led to sup-
pose that this measure of acquiring the territory
of Texas, was entirely new-conceived by the
defected brain of John Tyler for the purpose of
political aggrandisement. Whatever may be the
object of Mr. Tyler, in pressing the subject just
at this time, the fact that the extension of our
Southern boundary to the Rio del Norte has been
favored by the most illustrious statesmen and
patriots our country has produced, should not be
lost sight of. From the purchase of Louisiana in
1803 to 1819, Texas was claimed as being part
of the territory lprchased of France. This claim
was defended by all parties. Jefferson contended
that we had as much right to it as we had to New
Orleans. Madison and Monroe were equally de-
cided on the subject, and John Quincy Adams, in
his negotiation with the Spanish diplomatist, Mr.
Onis, took the same ground. In 1819, this claim
was ceded to Spain in consideration of Florida,
and the Sabine river by treaty, became the boun-
dary between the United States and the Spanish
possessions. The country however, neverafully
acquiesced in this treaty. Mr. Clay opposed it in
1820, and attempts were soon made to recover by
purchase what had been lost in negotiation. In
1825, when John Q. Adams was president, Mr
Clay, then Secretary of State, made overtures to
Mexico for its' purchase, and in 1827, he renew-
ed those overtures, OFFERING A MILLION
OF DOLLARS FOR TEXAS! In 1829, Gen'l.
Jackson, through Mr. Van Buren, made proposals
to Mexico for a part of Tekas, and in 1835, through
Edward Livingston, repeated them, specifying
the Rio del Norte as the boundary line. Such,
in brief, have been the claims opt up. nd itw.p.y-
forts made to obtain possession of this rich and
important territory. The instructions given by
both Mr. Adams and Gen'l. Jackson, while presi-
dent, express, in the most earnest and unequivo-
cal manner, the desire of our government to ob-
tain possession of this territory.
Thus, it would seem, Mr. Editor, that after all,
this proposition to acquire the territory of Texas,
is not so novel or alarming as political demagogues
E would induce the community to believe. A mea-
sure favored by such men as Jefferson, Madison,
Monroe, Adams and Jackson, certainly ought not
to be looked upon with such horror. X.

ON THE ,
PREVENTION OF MALARIAL DISEASES.

NUMBER IV.

WE have stated that in atmospheric impurity
we have one of the great sources of the diseases
to which the human frame is liable. Nor is this
simplicity of origin peculiar to this class of com-
plaints, for however numerous may be the apparent
causes of ailments, having a different origin, they
are in reality few and equally simple. In addition
to that of our chief theme-atmospheric im-
purity-and excluding those of surgical, criminal
or accidental origin, every disease, mentioned in
nosological nomenclatures, with a few exceptions,
may be distinctly traced either to contagion or
debauchery. These three primary causes, then,
atmospheric impurity, contagion and debauchery,
form the three grand and exclusive sources of the
sufferings, with the exceptions set forth above, to
which the human family is liable from physical
agencies.
The cause of disease most immediately inimical
to the human body, and producing far the greater
number of individual disorders, is that, on a por-
tion of the effects of which, we shall dwell at
length, and constituting the first of the above great
classes. That species of atmospheric impurity,
which is commonly known as malaria, is created
by the effluvia arising from the putrid remains of
.animal and vegetable matters, or the equally
noxious exhalations that are evolved from volcanic
or other soils. The virus, from all these species
of decomposition, always appears as a gas, and is
diffused through and intimately blended with the
respirable atmosphere. Its operation, therefore,
is general, the poison is inhaled at every respira-
tion, none who breathe can escape the liability to
its effects, The gaseous constituents of animal
* and vegetable matters being nearly identical .in
quality, though differing somewhat in relative
quantity, the effluvia arising from either, must be
equally injurious as that of the other, and, con-
sequently, when mixed together must operate with
united virulence. On the febrific nature of ex-
halations from decomposing vegetables, medical
men of the present day generally agree in opinion;
but there is not an equal unanimity in regard to
those emanating from animal substances. But the
subject is not worth controversy, for in addition to
the elements of both being similar, and that in
nature they rarely, or never exist separately, di-
rect evidence has established the fact that the
class of fevers, called putrid, do result from animal
*decomposition.
Heat and moisture of the atmosphere are the
grand agents in the process of natural decomposi-
tion-the prolific source of malaria. The geo-
graphical positions of some countries and situa-
tions render it inevitable that these attain that
degree of exaltation from which malarial results,
must follow. The poisonous exhalations, there-
fore, become correspondingly inevitable, and thus
these extrinsic matters necessarily form elements
of climate. The adventitious matters, then, that
constitute malaria, being considered as elements
of climate, they must be acknowledged as exert-
ing an influence in the causation of disease, and
the absence of them must be equally operative in
its prevention. Many circumstances, particularly
changes in atmospheric heat and moisture, may
modify the virulent character of these matters,
and to these modifications must be attributed the
variety in endemical and epidemical disorders.
The same circumstances may, also, act uponi the
human frame as exciting and predisposing causes,
a.nA ..w9-ww-)-i the di*a*"*.1*"/^ twaintimiii'ify.'.it,
which individuals may be affected during the pre-
valence of the same epidemic. Here we bave the%
source of one great class of diseases, wh ich, though
separated, one from another, by scientific nosolo-
gists, wide as the poles, show such points of es-
sential coincidence that they cannot have any
other than this common origin-atmospheric im-
pFurity.
The second grand source of diseases-contagion
-arises from a secretion peculiar to certain dis-
orders. This matter is either discharged from
the patient in a liquid, or, in a vaporous form
affects the atmosphere with qualities capable of
communicating a similar disease. The peculiar
circumstances producing the diseases that secrete
this contagious matter are but little understood,
nor indeed, though relevant, are they important
to our proposition. Many of the diseases arising
from atmospheric vitiation have been considered
as belonging to this class, but it would seem more
correct to consider this variety of the.causes,
whether of sporadic or epidemic ailments, as de-
pendant upon contagion, in the strict and literal
signification of the term. Although we are in
this, as in the case of malarious infeCtion, ignorant
of the precise nature of the means of communi-
cation, yet, it is evidently analogous to those con-
sequent on atmospheric impurity. It differs in
these respect. The matter of communication may
be either volatile or fixed, and the various diseases
may be propagated by innoculation. But both
conform by being transmissable, in most instances,
through a limited range of atmosphere.
The third and last general division of diseases,
is that class that result from intemperance, or the
perversion of the natural appetites and passions.
Except in a few instances, such as the general use .


of a deleterious article of food, this cause, alone,
never induces an epidemic, or even an acute
sporadic disease, but in co-operation with the
other two great causes, the worst species of both
are often generated. Indeed, irregularities of
diet and drink, are so intimately connected with
those diseases that result from atmospheric, im-
purity, that they may reasonably be classed as
among- the most frequently exciting causes, and
regarded as always aggravating them. As Dr.
Forry, in his valuable work on the climate of the
United States, justly observes: It is a truth that
holdsgood in every clime, that, in proportion to
the healthy state of the digestive organs, is the
constitution enabled to resist the causes of disease,
or to pass through it safely when under its influ-
ence." ...
Considered in reference to their origin, it is
hence apparent, that the great classes of diseases-
the atmospheric, the contagious, and those result-
ing from intemperance-may exist contemporane-
ously, and exert a modifying influence upon each
other. By far the most 'prolific source of individual
cases of disease, is vitiation of the atmosphere,
but a greater variety of human ailments seem to
be dependent upon intemperance. In this view
we can be sustained by an examination of th4
causes of disease, as laid down in any modern
system of the ,, practice of physic." From this
source it may be learned, that, of all diseases, the.
proportion attributed to excesses or privations, in
regard to diet, &c., is forty-four hundredths;
thirty-four hundredths may be traced to atmos-
pheric poison, or supposed vicissitudes of tempe-
rature or moisture; nine-hundredths are depen-
dant on contagion, volatile and fixed; and thir-
teen hundredths remain which cannot with cer-
tainty be assigned to any of the above, causes.
Of the contagious class, nearly one-half, at least,
are as dependent for their diffusion upon a certain
condition of the atmosphere as upon: direct con-


tact; and of the thirteen hundredths not assign-
able to any of the aforenamed three great causes,
several may be traced to errors in the medical
treatment of atmospheric diseases.
An investigation of the origin of our maladies
is of importance, because the only rational system
of preventing diseases, must be founded on as
accurate knowledge of their causes, and this once
attained, we shall have arrived much nearer to
the discovery of the means that will obviate them.
The prevention of those induced by intemperaine
is so obviously within the power of every-reason
ing being, that it is a matter of wonder'the simple
means, by which so much suffering may be avoid-
ed, should ever be disregarded. : Iteems so e"p
to practice dietetic moderation in health, and abe
stinence in sickness, that the advantages arising
therefrom only need be-alluded to, in order to
secure their universal adoption. Yet, experience
teaches that nothing is more difficult than such
restraints-that no mere prospective suffering,
nor-even the desire of a return to health, will in.
duce men to forego the indulgence of their appe.
tites,
One of the first profitable lessons learned' by
the young medical practitioner, if his ownper-
sonal experience have not previously illustratedN
the truth, is that all men have a kind of mental
obliquity that leads them-to prefer a course-ofthe
most nauseating medicines to a rigidly regulated
diet. This propensity to indulge. in excessesis
equally strong in those, whose.natural intellect
or cultivated powers, enables them to know that
it will inevitably be followed by disease and suf-
fering, as in those who seem to have no purpose
in life, other than the gratification of their brute
appetites. Neither the precepts.of reason, the
reflections of philosophy, nor the elevating sense
of moral dignity which they usually inspire, exert
any influence over this degrading impulse. The
very individual, who% from a highly cultivated
knowledge of his social relations, is marked for
the justice of his intercourse with his fellow men
but too frequently, makes himself conspicuous by
his violation, in this regard, of his first duty to
himself. To attempt to restrain human appetites,
or human passions, even in their most obviously
destructive tendencies, is as vain and useless as
would be an effort to stop the march of time,. or
repress the rising of the tide. And, although the
class of diseases generated by sensual indulgence,
is most within the control of mankind, we ven-
ture to predict that the means of preventing mala-
dies originating in 'the other two great sources,,
will be discovered and adopted long before men
will be induced to practice a rigid temperance, or
that degree of it, which is the most favorable for
the enjoyment of sound health.,
Nor perhaps, shall we ever be able so far to
succeed in removing the causes of the other classes
of diseases, as to secure immunity from all the
sufferings they inflict on our race. Although it
is not improbable that the constant respiration of
pure air, the habitual use of pure water, a regular
and moderate degree of labor, and a temperate in.
dulgence in all the appetites and passions, would,
without accident, enable the animal machine to
continue in good health till it must necessarily
stop from having worn itself out with old age,
still the difficulty of insuring purity in the former,
as well as the imperfection of human nature, deny
the possibility of such a result. A pretension to
so general an effect would involve the attempt to
remove nearly all physical evil; and however bene.
ficial to the human race, and attractive to the
enthusiastic and benevolent such assumn options mry
be, they are so impracticable that the experiencZd
observer will class them among the i sionary i dea,,
which, in a former age, amused the fancy o' ir
-Thoas..More, or, in the present ama, tro-t2n
r-pta-athropic reveries of Oweri'or Fourrier.
But if it were practicable to prevent the exist.
ence of both the atmospheric and contagious classes
of diseases, a description of the means would be
out of place in these numbers, because their de-
sign is not to enter into an examination of the-
laws of all epidemical influences, or the means of
counteracting them, but'simply to show how we
may lower the high temperature and diminish the
hygrometric moisture of limited portions of the
atmosphere in tropical and tropicoid climates.
As certain epidemics of warm climates are well
ascertained to be dependant on the excess of these
for their prevalence, therefore, by reducing them,
sublata causa tollitur effects, in that portion of
the atmosphere employed in supplying the re-
spiratory necessities of man, we niust prevent,'or
immediately put a stop. to the diseases of which
they are the cause. ,To a general view of this
subject our remarks will be confined.

CIOMMERCIL ADVERTISER.

AALAOEIOOLA, SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1844.

MR. LEVY-LEGISLATION FOR FLORIDA.
We have ever believed that our Delegate in
Congress is among the most efficient and indus-
trious who have ever represented the Territory.
He is ever at his post, and all times, amidst the
rancor and excitement of party strife, is prepared
and ready to defend the rights of the Territory,
or urge her interests with zeal, promptness and
talent. There is no part of the Territory for
which he has not been obliged to solicit some
Legislative act, and the various interests of the
different sections or districts have, we believe,
been urged with a like energy and attention.-
During the last session, owing to peculiar cir-
cumstances, and the embarrassments of the pub-
lic treasury, his success was by no means so
great as his efforts gave reason to expect; but the
late news from Washington shows that his un-
wearied perseverance this session will produce
more favorable results. Mr. Levy has addressed
a letter to the Editor of the Floridian, in which
he communicates the intelligence of the passage,
by the House of Representatives, of a number
of bills for Florida.
Among them is a bill for the selection of a
section of land any where in the public land dis-
trict, in place of the 16th section, in any of the
counties which may be covered by a grant, which
is the case in Franklin.
Also, an appropriation of $10,000 for the im-
provement of Choctowhatchi River; $5,000 for
Chipola and $2,000 for St. Marks.
Also, an appropriation for surveying a rail road
across the penensula, exploring the Everglades,
and making a canal between Indian River and
Mosquito harbor.
,Several new mail routes are to be established,
and the mail between Macon'and Tallahassee to
be restored to its former route.
A bill to establish a new collection district on
the Gulf.
And a bill appropriating $25,000 for a marine
hospital at Key West.
There are other bills of a local nature, in the
same course of. legislation, all of which Mr. L.
thinks will pass the' Senate. These he says con-
stitute but a part of what he has been engaged in
during the session, and he hopes yet to do much
more.
We hope, however, that our claims will not
be overlooked any longer-certainly our city is
much above any other in the Territory, in a com-
mercial point of view, and the improvement of
our harbor of greater importance than the navi-
gation of Chipola or Holmes Rivers. The marine
hospital, too, which we have been so long asking
for, is needed here, where we have so large an
amount of tonnage, with 2000 seamen every win-
ter, than it can ever be at Key West, unless there
' is a naval depot established there.
CONGRESSIONAL.
In the Senate, the bill authorising a subscrip.
tion by Congress for Greenow's history of Oregon
and Calefonia, was passed to a third reading.
An amendment to the bill, reducing the rate of
postage was adopted 24 to 17; that the rates shall
hereafter be, for a single letter conveyed under 30
miles three cents; Do. over 30 and under 100,
five cents; Do. over 100 and under 400 ten cents;
and all over 400 miles, fifteen cents. For double,
triple or quadruple letters, double, [triple or
quadruple these rates, as formerly, every parcel
which does not exceed an ounce in weight, con-
sidered a single letter, and every additional quar-
ter ounce, the additional postage of a single letter
is charged.
In the House, the bill "making appropriations
for the Western harbours and rivers was discussed
-the question was taken on the engrossment of
the.bill and rejected; a motion was made to re-
consider, but finally postponed to the next day.
Mr. Adams presented to the House, the camp
chest of Gen'l. Washington, used during the re-
volutionary war. It was purchased at Mount
Vernon, by Col. Maynadier, of Annapolis, Md.,
and by him given to Gov. Winder, of Maryland,
and lately bequeathed to Congress by his son, the
late Wm. Sidney Winder. Mr. Adams accom-


panied the presentation by some appropriate re-
marks, and concluded by offering resolutions of
acceptance, and thanks to the widow of the de-
visor.

felsome interest concerning the birth-place of
:;all its joys and its sorrows. When we see Elijah
dropping his mantle, and the muse parting with
her faded raiment, we are led to think how soon
:ithe soul must leave its silent:tenement, unadorned,
,and subject to decay. It may then bewail its
former weakness, and regret its useless toil.-
When a man has been occupied many years in
beautifying and decorating his place of residence,
"when the weeds and wild shrubs have been cut
-' 'have been, trained, when the breaches have been
repaired, and' the empty apartments garnished, if
he shaly turn but a moment away, he looks back
in sad disappointment, and finds the weeds wav-
fl ing in the place of the rose; the caterpillar hang-
S. ing .from the.vines of his portico; and the spider's
"webb covering the entrance of his door. It is
thus, my dear ,, Sacharissa," with those men who
occrtpy the days and the privileges of this life in
useless adornments of their mortal tenement.
The immortal spirit is neglected, and the poison-
t$ weeds of vice flourish luxuriantly where the
unwholsome mould of ignorance covers the soib
Is it then to be regretted that we find some men)
who seek to refine and beautify their thoughts,
iVhen they know that these constitute their robes
of righteousness in the world of spirit These
are toils that are not vain, and although a noble
spirit takes care to preserve its earthly temple
from dishonor and disrespect, it must occasionally
.yield to the impulse of immortality, and be reck-
less of the impressions of sensuousness, and inat-
tenti've to the delusions of wealth. Softly gliding
'Over the most delightful springs of tenderness,
tihe muse has often cherished the glow of virtuous
friendship, and soothed the remembrances of love.
When she was torn from my bosom, methought I
-eard her last notes rolling along the skies thus:--
~ Eeternal God! whose presence moves
The shining spheres above,
N" o mortal trust, too trifling proves,
To claim thy matchless love.
When burning thoughts, like incense rise
Fast from the poet's mind,
Till thou approve his sacrifice,
'Tis smoke blown on the wind.
Then, oh! thou source of all his joy,
Thy living light impart
And all his noblest powers employ,
And purify his heart,
So shall his toil rich blessing gain)
Fresh from the teeming skies,
Arid life's Wlid joys shall chase his pain)
And guard him when he dies.
