BELIEVE ME.
BY CHARLES SWAIN.
Believe me, or believe me not,
At other shrine I ne'er could b'ow
The world itself might be forgot,-
But never thou-oh, never thou !-
Though absent, I recall thy charms;
And wished-as lovers when they part--
I'd, hike the vine, a thousand arms,
To clasp thee-hold thee-to my heart.
There's not a pulse within my breast
But thrills and trembles to thy touch;
Forget l-oh, no !-tlie fear is lest
My soul may love thee overmuch!
Thy very name each feeling warms!
And oft, thoLIgh vain, the wish will state
That, vine-like, I'd a thousand arms
To clasp thee ever to my heart!
BYE-GONES.
"Let bye-gonesbe bye-gones"-they foolishly say,
And bid me be wise, and forget them ;
But old recollections are active to-day,
And I can do nought but regret them:
Tho' the present be pleasant, all joyous and gay,
And promising well for the morrow,
I love to look back on the years past away,
Embalming my bye-gones in sorrow.
If the morning of life has a mantle of grey,
Its noon will be blither and brighter.
If March has its storm, there is sunshine in May,
And light out of darkness is lighter ;
Thus the present is pleasant, a cheerful to-day,
With a wiser, a soberer sadness,.
Because it is tinged with the mellowing ray
Of a yesterday's sunset of gladness.


1 THE EFFECTS OF INEBRIETY.-A tall
red-haired, one-eyed Scotchman, whose
countenance certainly was not the most pre-
possessing in the world, was ordered to
stand up in the prisoner's dock at Recorder
Baldwin's court yesterday morning. The
request was so extremely reasonable that
the. delinquent could not possibly decline,
and accordingly rose and fixed his gaze from
his remaining orbit upon the- Recorder-
the other was in a total hopeless eclipse.
"You were taken up this morning," said
the Recorder.
Yes sir, 1 wus, I am reghlt sorry to say
it," exclaimed the prisoner in a penitent
voice with a broad Scotch accent.
What do you follow for a living 1'Aen-
quired the Recorder.
I'm a sheep carpenter, share, abo'ord
the and I follow my trade on. the sea
for a luving," replied the prisoner. An
I'm as gude a hand, though Isay it mysel'.
as iver handled an adze or druv a spike. I
wus the wuss for leeker the last night, sir,
,an' that's the truth, an' I didna ken where
I wus nor who I wus, 'and I di'Ina care sa
muckle either, if the truth was told. But
I hope ye'll e'n axcuse it this ane time, an'
I'm sure ye'll never'see me any more [a
pause.] I'm a puir haird working' body,
[another pause] an' I've got nae money, an'
I cannot pay ye ony fine or the like."
Recorder-[ might let you off, but-
Pris.-[Eagerly]-I wus to God ye would.
Recorder.-What do you say?
Pris.-Isay I wus to God ye would, nae
offence to yer honor intended.
Recorder.-If you could only promise
not to drink any more.
Pris.-Me, sir? I'll never put another
drap of the perneecious stoofinto me mouth
again if I should live till the day of joodge-
ment.
Recorder.-You can go then.
Pris:-Ye dinna eil ine truly Go!
mony thanks to yer honor, and I'll never
be able to forget me first appearance in a
court of justice-Exit.
The above scene occurred on Monday,
and was intended for Tuesday's paper, but
was crowded out. Yesterday morning the
saine individual was broughtup again, look-
ing very much shattered and very nervous,
and talking broader Scotch than before.-
The Recorder felt it his duty to send him
to the workhouse to get the rum out of
him.-[N. O. Picayune.

CuTrENESS.-The Nashville Daily Ga-
zette relates a' necdote of a joker who
must have been nearly a match for Simon
Suggs when he played at "old sledge"
with the preacher's black boy Bill. The
Gazette says :
A gentleman in the South has two sons,
Pete and John, neither of whom are of age.
The former is addicted to the habit of gam-
bling, and bids fair to teach his brother his
habit. The father, on a recent occasion,
heard that one of his sons was ina the habit
of playing cards, but he could not ascertain
which; and therefore attempted to get this
information by stratagem.
One evening after supper, he drew forth
a pack of cards from his desk, and invited
the boys to a game of "old sledge." Both
were astonished at this unprecedented pro-
position; but Pete's cunning had been de-
veloped long since, and it began to enquire t
into the motives of his father. In a mo-
ment, he took the hint; and could his fa- s
their have seen him, as he approached the
table behind him, he.would have seen a fin- I
ger pulling down an eyelid, as much as to
say, "Do you see anything green ?" The t
father dealt the cards, the lead fell to Pete, (
and out he led "Jack of Trumps"-slap
went John's "ace" upon it. The old man
looked sorrowfully on his younger son, as ]
h6 asked Pete, why he led his Jack ? "I f
thought it was the best card," said Pete.
John now led, and caught Pete's ten ;"
and as the game progressed to a conclusion, 1
it was evident that John would win; and it i
was evident to the father, too, that John was I
the gambling son. The game finished, the o
old man took John into an adjoining room, r
and thrashed him soundly a
o
ELOQUENT ExTRacT,-"Generation af- r
ter generation," says an eloquent writer, r
" have felt as w.e feel, and their fellows were s
as active as ouir own. They passed away r
like a vapor, while nature wore the same y
aspect of beauty as when her Creator com-
manded her to be. The heavens shall be
as bright over our graves as they are around r
our paths. The world will have the same v
attractions for our offsprings yet unborn, c
that she had once for ourselves, and that she a
has now for our children. Yet a little while a
and all of this will have happened. The t
throbbing heart will be stifled, arid we shall b
be at rest. Our funeral will wind on its way,
and the prayers will be said, and our frietids
will all return, and we shall be left to daek- t
less. And it may be for a short time that 2
we shall be spoken of, but the things of n
ife will creep in, and our names will soon s


be forgotten. Days will continue to move e
on, and laughter and song will be heard in c
he place in which we died: and the eye
hat mourned for us will be dried, and glis-c
en again with joy; and even our children r
will cease-to think of us, and will not re- v
member to lisp our names."
-C

An aspiring genius, a short time since,
undertook to play Richard at Corpus Chris-
i, Texas. He was hooted off, when reti-
ing to his dressing room, and kicking off p
is huff boots, he thus breathed his sensi- 2
ble resolution with regard to the future:
"Apples and eggs,
n a state of preservation questionable, U
Have filled the air like flights of evil birds,
And every one is augury, 5
n good set phrase I am convinced it
That this, the life I lead is not for me, b.
long for quiet-with fame I'm crammed,
And, now, for sweet tranquility I'll seek P
A private station-if I donut, I'm d-d." jo


CARTER THE LIoN KiNG.-Carter, the
celebrated Lion King, possessed perhaps
as much daring and self-possession as has
ever been known. A full grown and pow-
erful Bengal tiger was landed out of an In-
diaman for him, anA was to be trained for
his theatrical exhibitions. Carter express-
ed no concern at the task, nor anticipated
any difficulty ; and when he judged the fit-
ting moment had arrived hlie caused the
door of the cage to be opened, and sudden-
ly stood in the presence of the astonished
beast, armed merely with a slight horse-
whip. Cowed by the effrontery and stern
glance of the man, the tiger couched in
the most distant corner of the cage, terror-
stricken. A blow oftile whip, and an indi-
cation of the finger, sent the now submis-
sive beast to another corner; and thus it
was kept on the move from spot to spot, till
Carter, retiring from the cage, declared its
entire subjugation. The feats of this extra-
ordinary man on the stage are well known,
but he would often amuse himself in pri-
vate by matching his strength against that
of his animals. I-have seen him, for instance,
release a puma from its cage, and seizing
the beast by its tail, attempt to drag it
along; indeed, I do not believe he knew
what fear was. Frequently on the stage
he has been severely bitten and mauled,
without exhibiting the slightest uneasiness,
or even fear of the beast, which had con-
verted its feigned ferocity into an actual at-
tack. Altogether, his command over his
animals was ah astonishing exhibition, and
proved. forcibly how completely the majes-
ty and dauntless daring of man can affect
dominion.-[E. P. Thompson.

BRYANT, THE POET.-Some exchange
paper condenses from a sketch by Poe;,
some of the physical peculiarities of Mr.
Wm. C. Bryant. It appears that the great
poet, now fifty-two years of age, is in,height
5 feet9 inches. His frame is rather robust
-features large, but thin-his countenance
sallow, nearly bloodless. His eyes are
piercing gray, deep set, with large project-
ing eye-brows. His mouth is wide and
massive; the expression of the smile, hard,
cold-even sardonic. His forehead is broad,
with prominent organs of ideality. In bear-
ing he istquite distinguished-full of the
aristocracy of intellect. He dresses plain--
to the extreme of simplicity. His pecn-
liarly melancholy look has caused him to
be accused of harshness, a coldness of heart,
which is not however, the case, for his
soul is charity itself. In manners he is re-
served. Hle is now engaged constantly ii
editing a newspaper, leaving literature to
prosper without his aid. Mr. Bryant has
a wife and two daughters; one of the latter
is married to Parke Godwin. Mr. B. owes
his literary standing in a degree to early pa-
rental teachings. His father was familiar
with the best English literature, and per-
ceiving his son's genius, attended carefully
to his instruction, taught him the art of
composition, and guided his literary taste.

LITTLE KINDNEss.-Srnall acts of kind-
ness!-how pleasant and desirable do they
make life. Every dark object is made light
by them, and every tear of sorrow is brush-
ed away. When the heart is sad and des-
pondency sits at the entrance of the soul, A
trifling kindness drives despair away, and
makes the path of life cheerful and plea-
sant. Who will refuse a kind act? It
costs the giver nothing, but is invaluable to
he sad and sorrowing. It rises from misery
and degradation, and throws around the soul
hose hallowed joys that were lost in Para-
dise.-[Portland Bulletin.

TmHK.-Thought engenders thought.-
Place one idea upon paper, another will
follow it, and still another, until you have
written a page. You cannot fathom your
mind. There is a well of thought which
has no bottom. The more you draw from
t, the more clear and fruitful it will be.
If youf neglect to think yourself, and use
other people's thoughts-giving them utte-
rance only-you will never know what youd
are capable of. At first, your ideas come
ut in lumps-homely and shapeless-but
10 matter-time and perseverance will ar-
ange. and polish them. Learn to think
ind you will soon learn to write; and the
nore you think, ttle better will you express
our ideas.

CURIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE.-Says a Balti-
more paper of late date, while some boys
rere flying a Kite yesterday, in the vicinity
f Howard's Park,- and while the kite was
t a very great altitude, a bird, resembling
swallow, in its serial passage, became en-
angled in the cord or rudder, arid was thus
'fought dowb and secured.

La Reforme, a French publication, says
hat of 33,000,000 of the people in France,
7,000,000 do not drink wine, 31,000,000
ever taste sugar, 20,000,000 never wear
hoes, 31,000,000 never eat me-at, 18,000,000
at no wheaten bread, and 4,000,000 are


clothed in rags.

recently given at the late great Clay Festi-
al in New York, we notice the following :

POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES.--
stimating the increase at three per cent
er annum on the census of 1840, the pop-
lation of the United States will amount t.
0,140,370, on the 1st.June, 1846.

BIRTHS ANDDEATHs.-The births in the
Jaited States yearly, are from 400,000 to
00,000. Of this number of children, one
n fiifteen or more than 25,000 are still
ortn; more than 30,000 inherit from their
parents a diseased constitution, and arn mi
)rity die young.

THE JOYS OF PRAYER.-Even in those
parts of prayer that might seem only pain-
ful, there is a pleasure that will be ill ex-
changed for the world's most boasted bliss.
SIn the bitterness of repentant sorrow for sin,
there is a sweetness in that agony of fervent
supplication for pardon, there is a joy as
much superior in the best the world can
boast, as the heavens are higher than the
earth-
The broadest smile unfeeling folly ivea's,
Less pleasing far than prayer's repentant tears.
O! what a happy, heaven-foretasting life
might the children of God enjoy on earth,
if they would live a life of prayer! How
calm might they be in the midst of storms.
How composed and cheerful while all around
was agitation and alarm; the smile of Hea-
ven sparkling around their path, the peace
of Heaven dwelling within their hearts.
They say that travelers in Alpine regions
are encompassed with a clear atmosphere,
and cloudless sunshine, while traversing the
summit of these lofty mountains, at the
very time that the world below them is
wrapt in mists and darkness, and thunder
clouds are bursting at their feet. Even
thus does prayer lift the believer to a loftier
and 'serener region, far, far above the clouds
and storms that darken and distract the
world below. In that region of purity and
peace, the atmosphere is clear and calm ;
and the light of God's countenance shines
brightly on the believer's soul, while he
sees the thunder-clouds of earthly care and
sorrow rolling beneath his feet; thus reali-
zing the beautiful illustration of the poet-
"As some tall cliff that lifts its awful form,
Swellsfrom the vale, and midway leaves the storm,
Though round its feet the rolling cloudsare spread,
Eternal sunshine settles on its head."
CONSOLATION.-The great philosopher
Citophilus said one day to a lady oppressed
by grief for a heavy misfortune, Madame,
the Queen of England, daughter of Henry
the Great, was as unfortunate as yourself.
She was chased from her kingdom, she
nearly perished in a storm at sea, and she
saw her royal husband expireon a scaffold."
"I am sorry for her," said the lady, who
continued to shed tears over her own mis-
fortunes.
"But," said Citopbilus, "recollect Mary
Stuart; she loved-but in all honor-a very
handsome musician. Her husband slew
him before her eyes, and afterwards her good
friend and relation, Queen Elizabeth, caused
her head to be cut off on a scaffold hung
With black, after having kept her in prison
for eighteen years." That was very cru-
el," answered the lady, relapsing into mel-
ancholy.
You have perhaps heard," said the
comforter, of the beautiful Joanna of Na-
ples, who was taken and strangled?" "I
have a confused recollection of it," answer-
ed the mourner.
"I must relate to you," rejoined he, "the
adventures of ai sovereign who was dethron-
ed iu itty time, after supper, and who died
in a desert island." I know the Whole
story," replied the lady.
Well, then, let me tell you what hap-
pened to another great princess to whom I
have taught philosophy : she speaks of no-
thing but her misfortunes." "Why do you
wish, then, that I should not think of mine?" t
said the lady. Because," answered the
philosopher, "you ought not to reflect on
them ; when so many great ladies have been
so unfortunate, it does not become you to n
despair. Think of Hecuba--hink of Ni- "
obe." "Ah !" replied the, lady, if I had lI
lived in their time, or in that of the beau- b
tiful princesses, and if, to console them, c
you had related my misfortunes, do you t
think they would have listened to you ?" t
The next day the philosopher lost his ,
only son-he d. ready to expire with grief. v
The lady made out a list of all the kings n
who had lost their children, and carried it
to the philosopher. He read it-found it
perfectly correct, but he did not weep the less. u
Three months after, they met again, and t
were mutually astonished at each other's r
cheerfulness. They caused tp be erected h
a beautiful statue to Time, with this in- b
scription--" To him who consoles."

Cp7- The Elder JONATHAN DAVIS will preach
at the Methodist Church to-morrow morning at
11 o'clock.
03 The publication of the "Commer-
cial Advertiser Price Current" has been
suspended for the present, as the business
of the season is rapidly drawing to a close,
and the demand for our letter sheet is not
sufficient to warrant us in publishing it
longer.
We take this occasion to return to Mr.
W\m. T. WooD our sincere thanks for his
valuable assistance in its publication, in fur-
nishing us with an able we( kly review of
the Cotton Market, and for the labor he
bestowed upon the various tabular state-
ments contained in its columns. The mer-
chants of our city. as well as ourselves, are
under many obligations to Mr. Wood for
his efforts in getting up and sustaining the
" Price Current" by his unrewarded labor
and attention. Our thanks are also due to
Messrs. Nourse, Stone & Co., and to Mr.
John A. Mitchel, for courtesies extended to
us, in behalf of the Price Current and paper.
(I^The Steamer Champion, KENNEDY
commanding, left our wharf early on Wed-
nesday morning last, for Pittlburg, Pa., via
New-Orleans, Louisville, and Cincinnati-
She had on board a considerable number of
passengers. May they have a pleasant voy-
age, and the boat meet with no accident on
her passage.
Tile Peylona, Capt. Greer, will leave Co-
lumbus to-morow for this place, and will
leave here on 'Wednesday next for Pitts-
burg. This will be an excellent opportuni-
ty for persons wishing to go North to have
a safe, pleasant, and convenient 'trip.
We hope to see both these excellent boats
again on our waters "in thejyall."
LYNCH LAW AGAIN.
We notice, with shame and mortification,
another case of the infliction of Lynch law
within our State. In the short space of
one year, four citizens have been deprived
of life-hurried into eternity with the horri-
ble haste of an infuriated multitude and in
accordance with the fiat of an irresponsible
crowd: and this, in two of our oldest and
most popular counties, where the tribunals
of justice are regularly established, and the
officers of justice fully installed What
is our Constitution-what our volumes of
statutes worth, if life. liberty and property
are thus placed at, the mercy of a mob?
Under such a state of things, no man's life
is safe-to be" suspected is death; to be un-
popular may be ruin.
We do hope the Florida press will ex-
press uninanimously their condemnation and
abhorrence of these inhuman and sanguina-
ry proceedings.
We trust no calculations of popularity
will muzzle the press any where, while the
laws are thus trampled under foot and the
seat of Justice thus usurped. We care
not how palpable the villainy-how aggra-
vated the crimes of the four men who have
been hung, under Lynch law, within this
State during the last year, the organized
Courts of Justice were certainly to be de-
pended upon for their punishment, and the
amount and clearness of the evidence which
is plead iq mitigation of their execution
without law, must have ensured them pun-
ishment under the law.
We are told too how respectable the
erowd-how dispassionate and orderly ths
proceedings. Such attempts at extenua-
tion, are offensive to good taste and reason
and an. insult to the understandings of the
law-abiding'portion of our citizens.
We do most earnestly invoke the aid of
our brother conductors of the Press-+our
Grand Juries and ,our citizens generally, to
frown down this licentious disposition, too
prevalent among us, of overstepping law and
overturning our only monuments of defence
against violence and turbulence. Lynch
law is only to be tolerated in, new settle-
ments where no Courts of Justice are estab-
lished-then necessity makes law, but, in
counties where Judicial Tribunals ore es-

ressly declared that unless Gen. Taylor
ommenced his retreat beyond the Neuces
within twenty-four hours after his displaying,
is flag upon the Rio Grande, he should con-
'.der WAR as being declared, and should act
accordingly. Gen. Taylor further stated to
!en. Ampudia that he would receive no
ther communication from the Mexican
government unless couched in language
nore respectful towards the Government
nd people of the United States.
At Point Isabel great fears were enter-
slied of a night attack, which, from the
exposed situation of the place, could not be
otherwise than successful, if conducted with
energy.
'The post of Brasses St. Iago was defend-
d by Major Munroe with a detachment of
0 artillerists; 200 armed wagoners, 50 la-
orers, and 100 citizens, furnished with
rms by the U. S. Ordnance officer, organ-
sed under command of Capt. Perkins. A
company of 50 Mexican cavalry, supposed
o be a corps of observation, were seen with-
n 5 miles of Point Isabel on the night of
the 26th. The body of Col. Cross, who
had been missed from Gen. Taylor's camp
several days, and who it was supposed had
been captured by the enemy, was found on
he 21st, about three miles from can,
dreadiully mutilated and entirely divestedF
clothing. The body of Lieut. Porter, w I
was killed by a party of banditti, under the
command of Romer Falcon, had not beea
found. F
A P. S. to the letter of the Tropic's cor-
respondent states, that Gen. Arista had a'q-
rived, and had politely communicated to
Gen. Taylor that lie had assumed command
of the Mexican Army.
Another letter, from St. Joseph's island,
states that Gen'l Taylor was on that day
(23th ulh.) to engage with the enemy. His
whole fighting force did not number 3,000.
but their motto was-"conquer or die!"'
The U. S. Troops were said to be eager for
he fight.
[For the Commercial Advertiser.
MR. EDITOR :-
Allow me to make a few remarks in reply to
your learned correspondent I Taxatus.' If he has
any object in view I think few have the foresight
to see it. He continues the old song of abuses
long practised-the dishonesty of Councilmen,
and their disgraceful moral delinquency, &c. &c.
but seems to forget the adage, that those who live
in glass houses should not throw stones.
I Taxatus' fancies our afflicted and suffering
citizens do not exactly understand the cause of
their misfortunes. He says they continue from
year to year to elect men incapable of judiciously
wielding the powers of Government, and think
all their afflictions, arise from its mal-administra-
tion, but he in his ,wisdom fondly imagines that
he has found out the true source of all our afflic-
tions, and after filling two columns of your paper
with his communications on two different occa-
sions, he has not pointed out a single defect in the
City Charter.
I hope in his next communication 'Taxalus*
will condescend to poipt out the defects in the'
Charter, that we may judge whether he has actu-
ally found a mare's nest or not. "--st of your
readers no doubt are surfeited with his high
sounding nonsense about our political monstrosi-
ty, emblem of despotism not recognized by Demo-
cratic Statesmen, nor even monarchists of the pre-
sent day, latin quotations, &c. Really, this looks
like a tempest in a tea-pot, when he merely ima-
gines the charter is defective. Why not point it
ot t? Owing to the despotism and impolicy of
municipal misrule, says he, real estate the most
favorably situated has depreciated to one fourth
its original value. This is evidently imaginary,
unless he estimates its value from about the time
when some certain gentlemen were playing Peter
Fank at the sale of city lots (for the Apalachico-
la Land Company) to more than ten times their
value, and probably receiving a valuable conside-
ration therefore. To show the fallacy of Taxa-
tus's' over heated imagination, let me quote a few
lines from the Presentment of the late Grand
Jury in this county. They congratulate their
fellow-citizen, by saying :-
When we reflect upon the state of society in
this county, a few years ago (assimilating as it
did with all new and frontier communities,)
when the peaceful and unofiending citizen was.
continually jostled, in the legitimate walks and
avocations of life, by the violent and liceintious-
when our streets were the scenes of continual


outrage and turbulence-laws inoperative, and
justice silenced; and then review our present
condition-sobriety, peacefulness and i dustry
pervading society; the laws quietly exerti g their
power in restraining and controling .the passions
of the multitude, it aflbrds the amplest eidence
of the benificeni spirit of our laws and the ivili-
zing and ameliorating tendencies of our institu-
tions. The survey affords a pure joy to the phi-
lanthropist-cheering hopes to the patriot, and&
renewed confidence to the Republican, in the
capacity of the people for self-government.

At a meeting of the citizensof Apalaehi-

Thursday evening, 7tb inst., Mr. E. C.
ROBERTS was called to the Chair, and WM-

Mr. Wpa. A. KAIN, after a few pertinent

remarks, offered the following resolutions,.
which were unanimously adopted:-
Resolved, That the board of Commnis-
sioners of Roads and Bridges be requested
to mark out and survey a road from this
city to Quincy, in Gadsden county, in' such
direction, and in such manner as to them
may seem most expedient, and most condu-
cive to the public interest.
Resolved, That the overseers of Public
Roads are hereby requested to concentrate
the whole disposable force of the County,
to work on the Road so marked out and
surveyed.
Resolved, That it is the wish. of this

THE-SECRET SERVICE FUND.
The President of the United States com-
municated the following Message to the
House of Representatives on the 20th ult:
To the House of Representatiees:
[ have considered the resolution of the
House of Representatives of the 9th inst,
by'which I am requested to cause to be
furnished to that House an account of all
payments made ou Presidents' certificates
from the fund appropriated by law, through
the agency of the State Department, for
the -contiun.,'nt expenses of foreign inter-
course, from the 4th of March, 1841, until
the retirement of Daniel Webster from the
Department of State, with copies of all
entries, receipts, letters, vouchers, mem-
orandums, or other evidence of such pay-
ments, to whom paid, for what, and par-
ticularly all concerning the north-eastern
boundary dispute with Great Britain."
With an anxious desire to furnish to the
House any information requtested by that
body which may be in tle Executive De-
partments, I have felt bound by a sense, of
public duly to inquire how far I could, with
propriety.'or conzii-ontly with the existing
laws, respond to their call,
The usual annual appropriation for the
-contingent expenses of intercourse between
the United States and Foreign nations" has
been disbursed since the date of the act of
May 1st, 1810, in pursuance of its provi-
sions.
By the third section of th;t act it is pro-
vided-"Thlit when any sums of money
shall be drawn from the treasury, under any
law nudiliT appropriation for the contingent
expenses of intercourse between the United
States and foreign nations, the Pyesident
shall be, and he is hereby authorized to
cause the same to be duly settled annually
with the accounting officers of the treaisury,
in the manner following-that is to say, by
causing the same to be accounted for spe-
cially in all instances wherein the expendi-
ture thereof may, in his judgment, be rmde
public, and by making a certificate of the
amount of such expenditure as lie may
think it advisable'not to specify; and every
such certificate shall be deemed a sufficient
voucher for the sum or sums therein ex-
pressed to have been expended."
Two distinct classes of expenditure are
authorized by this law ; the one of a public,
and the other of a private and confidential
character. The President in /office at the
time of the expenditure is made by the law
the sole j,, 1,-c whether it shall be public or
private. Such sums are to be accounted
for specially in all instances wherein the ex-
penditure thereof may. it his judgment, be
made public." All expenditures "accoun-
ted for specially" are settled at the treasury
upon vouchers, and not on "Presidents'
certificates," 'and, like all other public ac-
counts, are subject to be called for by Con-
gress. and are open to public examination.
Had information as respects trns class of
expenditures been called for by the resolu-
tion of the House, it. would have been
promptly communicated.
Congress forseeing that it might become
necessary and -proper to apply portions of
this fund for objects, the original accounts
and vouchers for which could not be made
Ipublie" without injtry to Athe public inter-
est, authorized the President, instead of
such accounts and vouchers, to make a
-certificate of the amount of such expen-
ditures as he may think it advisable not to
vipecify," and have provided that every such
certificate shall be deemed a sufficient
Toucher for the sum or sums therein ex-
pressed to have been expended."
The law making these provisions is in full
force., It is binding upon all the depart-
ments of the government, and especially,
upon the Executive, whose duty it is to
take care that the laws be faithfully execu-
ted." In the exercise of the discretion
lodged by it in the Executive, several of
tny predecessors have made "certificates"
of the amount "ofsuch expenditures as
they have thought it advisable not to speci-
(y," and upon these certificates, as the only
vouchers, settlements have been .made at
the treasury.
It appears that within the period speci-
'fied in the resolution oftlhe House, certifi-
cates were given by my immediate prede-
cessor, upon which settlements have been
made at the treasury amounting to five
thousand four hundred and sixty dollars.-
He has solemnly determined that the objects
and items of these expenditures slhouhld not
be made public, and has given Iris certifi-
cate to that effect, which are placed upon
the records of the country. Under the di-
rect authority of an existing taw, he has
exercised the power of placing these ex-
penditures under the sea! of confidence,
and the whole matter was terminated hefo~re
Iecame into office. An important question
arises whether a subsequent President,
either voluntarily or at the request of one
branch of Congress, can, without a viola-


tion of the spirit of the law, revise the acts
of his predecessor, and expose to public
view that which, he had determined should
not be "made public." If not a matter of
strict duty, it would certainly be a safe gen
eral rule that this should not be done. In-
deed, it may well happen, and probably
would happen, that the President for the
time being would not be in possession of
the information upon which his predec'es
sor acted, and couhd not therefore have the
means of judging whether he had exercised
his discretion wisely or not.
The law requires no other voucher but
the President's certificate, and there is
nothing in its provisions which requires any
entries, receipts, letters, vouchers, mem-
orandums, or other evidence of such pay-
ments" to be preserved in the Execu-ive
department. The President who makes
the certificate" may, if he chooses, keep
all the information and evidence upon which
he acts in his own possession. If, for the
information of his successors, he shall leave
the evidence on which he acts, and the
items of the expenditures which make np
the sum for which he has given his certi-
ficate," on the confidential files of one of
the executive departments, they do not, in
any proper sense, become thereby public
records. They are never seen or examined

by the accounting officers of the treasury,
when they settle an account on the "Presi-
dent's certificate." The first Congress of
the United States, on the 1st of July, 1790,
passed an act -providing the means of in-
tercourse between the United States and
foreign nations," by which a similar provi-
sion to that which now exists was made for


II~*-~I-~I~LCIBBeYPr?~i?~~l-~uSrauRP~~-


Representatives, and an anxious desire to
conform to their wishes, I am constrained
to come to this conclusion.
I If Congress disapprove the policy of the
law, they may repeal its provisions.
I In reply to that portion of the resolution
of the House which calls for "copies of
whatever communications were made from
the Secretary of State during the last ses-
sion of the 27th Congress, particularly Feb-
ruary, 1843, to Mr. Cushing and Mr. Ad-
ams, members of the Committee of this
House on Foreign Affairs, of -the wish of
the President of the United States to insti-
tute a special mission to Great Britain," I
have to state that no such communications,
or copies of them, are found in the Depart-
ment of State.
"Copies of all letters on the books of
the Department of State, to any officer of
the United States. or any person in New-
York, concerning Alexander McLeod,"
which are also called for by the resolution,
are herewith communicated.

ablished its exercise is certainly inde-
fensible.
The violation of law and order which has
elicited the above reflections, was perpetra-
ed in Jefferson county, near Monticello,
on Tuesday, 28th ult, by hanging one
Jackson Jewel, after having given him an
normal trial.

C72V We have seen a Bill which was re-
ported by Mr. Johnson, of Maryland, from
he Senate Committce on Claims, for the
relief of Edward Bolon, of Florida. The
Bill authorises tle Secretary of the Treas-
ury to pay to Edward Bolon, or his legal
representatives, eleven hundred and seventy
four dollars, as reimbursement of expenses
and compensation for services in keeping.
two prisoners of the United States, named
Passmore, in the jail of Calihoun county,
Florida. The bill was read once, in Senate,
April 21, and passed to a second reading.

Our sage, sapient and sagacious cotem-
pbrary of the 'IFloridian' occasionally deigns
to look down from his pridee of place," as
editor of the Organ of the Florida democra-
cy, and bestow upon the "young men" of
the 'Commercial Advertiser' a passing no-
tice. We are highly flattered by the atten-
tions thus bestowed upon us; our hearts
are filled with gratitude for the good opin-
ion which the editor is pleased to express
of us, and we can assure him in return, that
we entertain for him "the highest possible
respect." As "young men," having but
a poor opinion of our own abilities, we would
willingly receive instruction and advice from
an older heqd, provided, always, that it was
one not notoriously deficient in all that con-
stituted a sound adviser and a moral instruc-
tor. But young and inexperienced as we
are, we hope by the time we attain the
age of our contemporary, we shall have all
his experience without any of his follies and
iniquities. Ile also presumes we are in
search of truth: this is the most laudable
peice of presumption of which we ever knew
him guilty, and it is strictly true; but while
we are searchers after truth, our observation
admonishes us that it would be worse than
fruitless to search the columns of the Flo-
ridian '.for the attainment of our object.
Our contemporary seems to think Whig
members of Congress have no right to ad-
dress letters to editors of Whig journals in
Florida, touching the conduct and charac-
ter of our public men. Did he think so a
year ago, when the Richmond 'Enquirer'
was instructing the people of Florida that
they should elect Mr. Brockenbrough to
the United States Senate? Did he think
so last fall, pending the election of Repre-
sentative to Congress, when the same jour-
nal, in conjunction- with the Government
Organ at Washington, told the people of
this State that they must elect Mr. Brock-
enbrough over Mr. Cabeil? Judging from
the copious extracts which the editor trans-
ferred from these journals to the columns
of the 'IFloridian,',we suppose he was not
then so much opposed to "foreign influ-
ence" as he seems to be now, nor had he,
as the conductor of "a free press," such a
horror for fulsomee flattery" as he would
have the world believe he now entertains.
The editor says that Mr. Cabell is a new
convert to whiggery. This is news to us,
but if it were true, the editor, as the friend
of Mr. Brockenbrough, ought to be the last
to make the charge : for does he not know
thiat Mr. B. comes under the same category,
assa democrat? Does he not know that
Mr. B. acted wilh the whig party of the
Territory up'to 1843 ? Mr. B. was a Har-
rison man in 1840, and soon after was elect-
ed a member of the Territorial Senate from
this District. He was more uneompromi-
sing in his hostility to the Territorial demo-
cracy-Westcott, Baltzell, Levy, and all--
than any other man in the Territory. Who
does not recollect the bitter, acrimoniou.
feeling he indulged towards Mr. Levy and
his political opinions ? But now he is uni-
ted with this same MIr. Levy in admirable
harmony, that he may walk, like th(
Jews in Nebuchadnezzer's furnace, un.


harmed amidst the fires of party. Such z
man, caring for nothing but his own aggran-
dizement, will adopt the means most likely]
to secure it.
But the editor says he has always beer
simple enough to believe that the candidate(
who receives the greatest number of vote!
is elected. We have not been so simple
for it often happens, as in the case of Mr
Brockenbrough, (if indeed he had a major
ty at all,) that his majority was made up o
fraudulent and illegal votes, consequently
he was not lawfully elected.
Our cotemporary thinks the people o
Florida capable of choosing their own re
presentative. So we think, and they gavi
the strongest evidence of it by electing Mr
Cabell. They showed that they could no
be controlled by the editor and his junto
for we are free to admit that the democrati,
party have a majority in the State. Wi
doubt very much whether Mr. Brocken
brought is the choice of a majority of hi
own party, much less of a majority of th,
people of Florida. We doubt if h6 was a
the time of his nomination, the choice o
those who nominated him; but a common
object brought them together--power anm
plunder.' They came before the people
with the maxims of Cato on their lips, bu
with the principles of Cataline in thei


hearts, and the people may learn when it is pt
too late the difference between their con- co
duct and their professions. w
In conclusion, we must beg to decline all hi
advice and admonition from our fatherly si
contemporary of the 'Floridian,' until he ac
furnishes us some evidence that his wisdom G
is somewhat in proportion to his years, fu
The clause he has suggested to us in lieu G
of our remarks in relation to Mr. Cabell, is m
weak, flat and unintelligible. The whole at
article addressed to us is unworthy even
of his devil-it is a battered and squabbled ta
affair, and should have been knocked into e
pi by his typo and consigned to the old shoe. o
FLORIDA TOBACCO CP.oP.-We under- e
stand that owing to the large crop last sea-
son, and the consequent ruinously low
prices, the coming crop is likely to be very
small. Experiment has proved that but a
small portion of the lands in Florida is a
adapted to the growth of tobacco of a su- is
perior quality, such as is sought after for c
wrappers of cipars, of high price. Many t(
who planted last season, by way of experi- ,
meant, have found it unprofitable, owing to
the poor quality produdee, and the small h
remuneration received, and will not plant s
again. It is believed that the coining crop, h
even if the season is favorable, will not be t
more than one-third of the last crop. We
hope our planters will be better paid next c
season, or the business of tobacco culture "
in Florida may be abandoned altogether., c

and within the range of four pieces ofartil-
lery. They saw the Captain leap the fence
enclosing the Mexican camp, and think he
escaped. This information was obtained at
Gen. Taylor's by a wounded man sent in by
the Mexicans, for the benefit of our hospi-
tal. There were 13 or 14 of Capt. T.'s
company killed.
Gen. Tayior's camp is" sajd to be sur-
rounded by a vastly superior 'Mexican force
-and cut off from its supiflies at Point Isa-
bel, where there are but 400 men, liable at
any time to be taken. Arista is in command
of the Mexican forces, which he assumed
on the 22d. He says he wishes to carry on
the war in the European and christian style.
Gen. Taylor has called upon the Govern-
or of Texas for forty companies of volun-
teers-the infantry to leave Galveston by
steam,-mounted to rendezvous at Corpus
Christi. Gen. Taylor is said to have but
ten day's rations in his present position,
which is a strong one and capable of being
defended against a greatly superior force;
Sbut it is feared he will be cut off from his
, .supplies unless reinforced.
t These are all the main facts which are in
our possession as yet.

- war this evening by land and wishes to be

i The extra of llhe Tropic contains the
_ same accounts but in a more minute form.
_ We would be pleased to publish tlhe con-
_ tents of the extra entire, but the late hour
i at which it was placed in our hands renders
s it impracticable. We give the following
| particulars, condensed from the letter of a
. correspondent of the Tropic, writing from
e Brasses St. Jfago, under date of April 27 :
e General Taylor had an excellent position
. in the rear of MVatamoras, which it was sup-
a posed he would be able to maintain against


. the whole force of the Mexican Army, and
Y his batteries could be brought to range the
city in an hour. Malamoras had been near-
n ly abandoned by its citizens, and Gen. Tay-
e lor had said that when the regular soldiers
s of Mexico were seen on the east side of the
; river he would destroy the city. His batte-
ries were to be ready on the 27th'ult., com-
- plete. He had in camp full rations for 15
f days, which it was believed could be made
y to last 30, by which time he hoped to be
largely reinforced from the States of Texas
f and Louisiana, as he had made requisitions
_ upon each of these States for four full regi-
e ments of Militia.
It was thought by the superior officers of
t Gen. Taytor's army that 20,000 men would
), be required, as the Mexican army was daily
e receiving large reinforcements. It was sup-
e posed that Gen. Arista had reached Mata-
_ moras on the 22d ult., with a large Brigade,
s but up to the last accounts from Gen. Tay-
e lofts camp, no information had been received
t by him from Gen. Arista. On the 22d,
)f Gen. Taylor received from Gen. Ampudia,
a by means of a flag of truce, a communica-
d tion in very offensive terms, cotiplaining of
e the blockade of the Rio Grande. To which
t Gen. T. replied, that he (Gen. A.) had been
r the cause of the blockade,'he having ex-


the settlement of such expenditures as, in
the judgment of the President, ought not
1o be made public. This act was limited in
its duration. It was continued for a limited
term in 1793; and between that time and
the date of the'act of May 1, 1810, which
is now in force, the same provision was re-
vived and continued. Expenditures were
made and settled under presidential certifi-
cates, in pursuance of these laws.
If' the President may answer the present
call, fie must answer similar calls for every
such expenditure of' a confidential chatac-
ter, made under every administration, in
war and in peace, from the organization of
the Government to the present period. To
break the seal of confidence imposed by
the law, and heretofore uniformly preserv-
ed, would be subversive of the very purpose
for which the law was enacted, and might
b6 productive of the most disastrous conse-
quences. The expenditures of this confi-
dential character, it is believed, were never
before sought to be made public ; and I
should greatly apprehend the consequences
of establishing a precedent which would
render such disclosures hereafter inevitable.
1 am fully aware of the strong and cor-
rect public feeling which exists throughout
the country against secrecy of any kind in
the administration of the government, and
especially in reference to public expendi-
.ures; yet our foreign negotiations are
wisely and properly confined to the knowl-
edge of the Executive during their penden-
cy. Our laws require the accounts of eve-
ry particular expenditure to be rendered and
publicly settled at the Treasury Depart-
mert. The single exception which exists
is, not that the amount embraced under
Presidents' certificates shall be withheld
from the public, but merely that the items
of which these are composed shall not be
divulged. To this extent, and no further,
is secrecy observed.
The laudable vigilance of the people in
regard to all the expenditures of' the gov-
ernment, as well as a sense of duty on the
part of the President, and a desire to retain
the good opinion of his fellow-citizens, will
prevent any sum expended from being ac-
counted for by the President's certificates,
unless in cases of urgent necessity. Such
certificates have therefore been resorted to
but seldom throughout our past history.
For my own part, I have not caused any
account whatever to he settled on a presi-
dential certificate. 1 have had no occasion
rendering it necessary, in my judgment, to
make such a certificate; and it would be
an extreme case which would ever induce
me to exercise this authority ; yet, if such
a case should arise, it would be my duty to
assume the responsibility devolved on me
by the law.
During my administration, all expendi-
tures for contingent expenses of foreign in-
tercourse, in which the accounts have been
closed, have been settled upon regular
vouchers, as all other public accounts are
settled at the treasury.
It may be alleged that the power of im-
peachment belongs to the House of Repre-
sentatives, and that, with a view to the ex-
ercise of this power, that House has the
right to investigate the conduct of all pub-
lic officers under the government. This is
cheerfully admitted. In such a case, the
safety of the republic would be thesupieme
law ; and the power of the House in the
pursuit of this object, would penetrate into
the most secret recesses of the Executive
departments. It could command the at-
tendance of any and every agent of the
government, and compel them to produce
all papers, public or private, official or un-
official, and to testify on oath to all facts
within their knowledge. But even in a case
of that kind, they would adopt all wise pre-
cautions to prevent the exposure of all such
matters, the publication of which might in-
juriously affect the public interest, except
so' far as this might be necessary to accom-
plish the great ends of public justice. If
the House of' Representatives, as the grand
inquest of the nation, should at any time
have reason to believe that there has beer
malversation in office, by an improper use
or application of the public money by
public officer, and should think proper tc
institute an inquiry into the matter, all th
archives and papers of the Exeeutive De-
partments, public or private, would be sub-
ject to the inspection and control of :
committee of their body, and every, facility
in the power of the Executive be afforded:
to enable them to prosecute the investigation
The experience of every nation on earl[
has demonstrated that emergencies rna3
arise in which it becomes absolutely neees
sary for the public safety or the public good
to make expenditures, the very object o
which would be defeated by publicity.--
Some governments have very large amnouol.'
at their disposal, and have made vastly
greater expenditure than the small amount,
which bare from time to time been aceoun
.ted for on Presidents' certificates. In n(


nation is the application of such sums ever
made public. In time of war, or impend
ing danger, the situation of the country
may make it necessary to employ individu-
als for the purpose of obtaining information
or rendering other important services, who
could never be prevailed upon to act if they
entertained the least apprehension that thei
names or their agency would in any contin
agency be~divulged. So it may often be.
come necessary to incur an expenditure fot
an object highly useful to the country, fot
example, the conclusion of a treaty with a
barbarian power, whose customs require
on such occasions the use of presents ; but
this object might be altogether defeated by
the intrigues of other powers, if our pur-
poses were to be made known by the exhi.
bition of the original papers and vouchers
to the accounting officers of the treasury
It would be easy to specify other cases
which may occur in the history of a greal
nation in its intercourse with other nations
wherein it might become absolutely neces-
sary to incur expenditures for objects which
could never be accomplished, if it were sus-
pected, in advance, the items of expendi-
ture. and the agencies employed, would be
made public.
Actuated, undoubtedly, by considerations
of this kind, Congress provided such a fund
coeval with the'organization of the govern-
ment, and subsequently enacted the law ol
1810, as the permanent law of the land.-
While this law exists in full force, I fee
bound, by a high sense of public policy and
duty, to observe its provisions, and the
uniform practice of my predecessors, under
it. With great respect for the House of

HOUSE OF !REPRESENTATIVES.
The J"ournal having been read,
Mr. C. J. Ingersoll asked for a suspen-
sion of the rules to enable him to make a


personal explanation.-
Mr. Henley, of Indiana, asked what rule
there was tihat prevented a personal expla-
n nation being made at any time?
"\ The Speaker said that the rules provided
[opnly for the transaction of legislative busi-
ness, and these must be suspended before
personal explanations could be allowed.
The question was put, and the Speaker
I was decided, the yeas and nays were called
for and ordered, resulting, yeas 102, nays 25.
A message was received from the Senate
with the House bill to establish a Branch
Mint at Charleston, S. C., with amend-
,ments.
The rules having been suspended by the
-vote as above,
Mr. C. J. Ingersoll rose to make his per-
sonal explanation, of which the following
are the heads. He had made three charges
.against Mr. Webster:
.1st. Mr. Webster had made an unlawful
',mse of the secret service fund.
d. Misapplying part of that fund to the
corruption of the party press.
3d. Leaving the department of State a
defaulter to the above named fund.
With reference to these charges he said
he had access to the Department of State
-as a member for some years of the Com-
mittee on Foreign Affairs, but probably no
more than other members of the House
were entitled to. That he had gone there
when assailed by Mr. Webster, to search
for evidence to sustain his former charges,
in the course of which, he had found the
evidence of the charges he had made; the
first item he found being one for $1000 in
the McLeod case. Up to April. 1841, be

,, It is a common opinion in the United
States,.that when Mr. Walker's tariff bill
shall have reduced ihe import duties of the
Union to an average of 20 per cent, Eng-
and will care very little for the defence of
her claims beyond the Rocky Mountains;
and it has been constantly remarked on this
ide of the Atlantic, that when Mr. Polk
nd his supporters learn the extent of Sir
Robert Peel's plan for the admission of their
taple commodities, they will see the folly
of risking such national advantages for the
chances of a most formidable contest. The
Iternaiive of peace and war is at all times
he most serious question thatl can be en-
ertained by a government ; but the alterna-
ive of peace, accornpAnied by the mutual
benefits of a trade about to be opened to an
unlimited extent, or of war for the posses-
sion of such a territory as that of Oregon,
renders the contest of good and evil, and
he conflict between national interest and
rimtional duty, infinitely more forcible and
mornentous.
Nevertheless, although the people of this
country have entertained strong hopes that
he policy of Mr. Polk might be sensibly
modified by the prospect of free trade with
3reat Britain, and although we rejoice at
he prospect of a simultaneous abatement
i" the protective system in the United States,
no one has ever contended in this country
hat Mr. Walker's tariff is a reason for us
o abandon the banks of the Columbia or to
ower the moderate and just claims to part
of the Oregon territory which have been
constantly upheld by the British govern-
ment. We are happy to pay Mr. Polk in
kind, and to meet him more than half way
n his commercial reforms; but there is not
a man in our most crowded markets or our
busiest ports who would consent to give in
exchange for these advantages one tittle of
British honor or one acre of the rightful
dominion of the British Crown."
Along with the evident reluctance of
England to go to war with this country
there is also a uniform manifestation of a
resolved purpose to fight if it becomes ne-
cessary. We do not know how much the
Administration predicates upon the former-
not much, we hope. A dangerous mistake
may be committed on this point. It may
be seen by the foregoing paragraph that the
banks of the Columbia are to be held as the
boundary of the British pretensions in Or-
egon. If this be the ultimatum which we
are to expect when the notice sliall have
been given, the chances of a pacific settle-
ment will be somewhart of (he smallest.

A PRINTER'S FUNERAL.-A very large
and respectable concourse of our citizens
attended to the grave yesterday the remains
Of WILLIAM H. FLOOD, who died on Tues-
day evening. We knew him well. He was
the man who set up the first stickfall of type
that went into the columns of the PICA-
YuN-E." From that day we have known
him. He possessed a thorough knowledge
of his profession ; was perfectly upright in
all the relations of life, and all his impulses
were kind and generous. His brother prin-
ters attended his funeral en masse, and with
a very large delegation of the Fire Depart-
ment, of which he was a popular member,
united to pay the last sad tribute of respect
to one who was universally beloved for his
good qualities of heart, and respected for
his intelligence and integrity. Mr. Flood
was in his 30th year, a native of Zanesville,
Ohio, where we believe he has a mother
now living. His disease, we learn, was
pleurisy. Poor Flood !-may his spirit rest
in peace.

REMARKS ON THE MARKET.
COTTON.-Since our report of Tuesday, the
Great Western's accounts to the l1th ult. from
Liverpool, have come to hand. These accounts,
although rather favorable rfor cotton, have pro-
duced but little, if any, effect upon our market.
The demand during the last few days has been
quite moderate, and to-day the market has pre-
sented quite a dull appearance. We make no
change in our quotations.

SWILL be paid for the apprehension of

from Pensacola between the 15th and 20th

light color, about 28 or 30 years of age, 5 feet 8
or 9 inches high, rather stout; can read and
write, and is a first rate Steward or Waiter. It
is more than probable that he has forged the
signature of Mrs. A. M. Dade to a pass, with
which he hopes to escape to a free State. The
above reward with all necessary expenses will be
paid for his apprehension and delivery to Mrs.
Dade at Pensacola.

Balsam of Liverwort.
A REMEDY most perfect is said now to be
--discovered in settled Consumption, Liver
Complaint, or any of their incipient symptoms,
on the 'Chrono-Thermal system, by the use of
Doctor TAYLOR'S celebrated medicine, thd
Genuine BALSAM OF LIvERwORT, which he pre-
pares at375 BOWERY. This plan of treatment
now espoused by several eminent physicians, IS,
and has been for a long time, the secret of the
unparalleled success which has attended Doctor
Taylor's medicine in performing its wonderful
cures, which in many, very many cases, have
been almost incredible, but the conclusive proofs
the Doctor can bring forward are irresistible, and
we advise all who may have couighs or simple
colds even, to use this perfect specific without
delay. "Franklin says a small leak will sink a
big ship." Therefore, cure your coughs before
your ltngs are past cure. For sale by
J. C. ALLEN, Sole Agent for
=-- Apalachicola. :
CAUTION---The genuine Doctor TAYLOWS'
BALSAM OF LIVE.WORT, has on the bottle a
splendid steel plate engraving, to prevent coun-
terfeits signed by OWrdon J. Leeds, any other i*
vile and dangerous imitations, and the public are
cautioned not to purchase or deal in it, as it i,
protected by the U. S. Copy Right Laws. j
