Jack Cotherstbne is a good fellow enough,
b4ut he will set up, not exactly for a million-
aire, but for the possession of-" no mat-
ter; something handsome, comiin;'tble,
quite enough, my boy, to keep the pot boil-
ing, and a little over."
I called on Jack the other Sunday after-
noon. He had just dined, and was in the
act of mixing a comfortable glass of bumble
gin-and-water. He had heard my foot on
the stairs, and I caught him in the very act
of smuggling the lowly eomponnd into the
"Just in time, my boy, for a glass of witie
-some port. I got it by mere accident ;
but I rather flatter myself you will find it
slightly the thing-vintage of eighteen"--
And in spite of my declared preference for
the liquid vulgarly and familiarly denomin-
ated. Old Tom, Jack bolted out of the
room to order the girl to bring up a special
red-sealed beaker.
I heard the outer door shut and open be-
fore she returned, bnt attributed it to some
peculiarity inthe construction of the house,
which placed the entrance to the cellerage
next door, or possibly over the way; At
length the damsel re-appeared, empty hand-
Please; sir, it's after 3 o'clock, and the
vault is shut."
The work is carefully and neatly got up,
well printed, and illustrated with excellent
Beautiful Tear! whether lingering upon
thle brink of the e "elid[ -nr -I- L-I--,,, t..
furo-wsg T me-care-worn-cheek-thou art
beautiful in thy simplicity--great because
of thy modesty-strang from thy very weak-
ness. Offsprings of sorrow! Who *ill not-
own thy claim to sympathy Who can resist
thy eloquence ? who can deny mercy when
thou pleadest? Beautiful Tear!
-- Let us trace a tear to its source. The
eye is the most attractive organ of animal
bodies. It is placed in a bony socket, by
which it is protected, and wherein it finds
room to perform the motion requisite to its
uses, The rays of'light which transmit the
images of external objects enter the pupil
through the chrystalline lens, and fall upon
the retina,'upon which, within the space re-
presented by a sixpence, is formed in all
beauty and perfection, an exact image of
many miles of landscape, every object dis-
playing its proper color and true proportions
-trees ind lakes, hills and valleys, insects
and flowers, all in true keeping, are there
shown it once, and the impression produced
thereby upon the filaments of the optic
nerve causes a sensation which communi-
cates to the mind the apparent qualities.of
the varied objects we behold.
That this wonderful faculty of vision may
be uninterrupted, it is necessary that the
transparent membrane which forms the ex-
ternal covering ofthe eye shall be kept moist
and free from the contact of opaque sub-
stances. To supply the fluid which shall
moisten and cleanse the eye, there is placed
at the outer and upper part of the ball a
small gland, which secretes the lachrymal
fluid, and pults it out at the corner of the
eye, whence by the motion of the lids, it is
equally spread over the suiface, and thus
moisture and clearness are at once secured.
When we incline to sleep, the eye be-
comes comparatively bloodless and dull.-
The eyelids drop to shut out everything
which might tend to arouse the slumbering
senses. 'The secrelion of the lachrymal
glands is probably all but suspended, and the
organs ofsight participate in the general rest.
When, after a long night's sleep, the eye-
lids first open, there is, therefore; a dullness
of vision, arising probably from the dryness
of the cornea ; then occur the rapid motions
of the lids, familiarly termed "winking"-
sometimes instinctively aided by rubbing
with the hands-and afier a few moments
the "windows" of the body have been pro-
perly cleansed and set in order, the eye ad-
justed to the quantity of light it must re-
ceive, and we are awake" for the day, and
may go forth to renew our acquaintance with
the beauties of nature.
It isfrom the glands which supply this
'moisture that tearsflow. Among physiolo-
gists it is well known that emotions--impres-
stuns upon the nervous system--exercise a'
powerful and immediate influence upon the
secretions. As, for instance, tlhe mnere
thought of soee Saorury dish, or delicious
fruit, or something acid--of the juice (if the
lemon--will excite an instant flow of the
salivaiy fluid into the mouth- An emotion of
the mind influences the lachrymal glands,
which copiously secrete and pour forth the
chrysiaI drops, and these, as they appear
upon the surface of the eye t, we detibiminate
A similar action; called forth by. another
kind of excitement, occurs wherl diust or
other iirritaiing substance comes in contact
with the eye ; the glands instantly secrete
abundantly, and pouring the chystal fluid
out upon the surf;ice, the eye is protected
frorn injury, and the offending substithte is
washed away. The feelings which excite
excessive laughter or joy also stimulate this

secret ion-tihe eyes are said to "water."-
It is only wheu the hfirysial drop comes
forth under the ifip'ulse of sorrow-thus
speaking the anguish of the mind-that it
can properly be called a tear. Hence its
sacred character, and the sympathy which
it seldom fails to cteate.
Every tear represents some indwelling
sorrow preying upon the mind and eating
out iis peace. The tear comes forth to de-.
clare the inward struggle, and to plead'a
truce against further strife. How meet

Tfis is unquestionably a very striking
work.-a humorous little volume of the
highest class; written with great power, and
apparently with equal ease, so fluent is the
diction and unlabored the style. Anus 3B.
Reach is unexceptionable in his description
of Humbugs, and depiciures characters and
scenes with great fun and talent. Witness
the following account by him of the humbug
There is not an axiom, from the first page
of Euclid to the last, more overwhelmingly
true than the assertion that people who give
general invitations are, in that respect, at all
events, Humbugs.
Why don't you ever come down to
Honey-moon Villa? Mrs. Jones and my-
self would be so delighted to seeyou, Any
timp, you know-just suit yourself: we're
at home-oh dear, every evening. Doi"t
forget, now : we shall expect you one of
these days."
The Joneses are in the habit of giving
these vague invitations. Of course, they
arejever meaut, to. be acted _upono and. in-
deed, very seldom come to anything.-
Once, however-Jones will never forget the
fatal day--a deep plot which had been long
laid against his peace, was put into execu-
tion. The lady and gentleman were in the
act of sitting down to a quiet little dinner,
when rat-tat wentitheknocker, and in walked
"Alia! at dinner. Well, never mind;
I've just taken you at your word, you see.
Don't be on any ceremony. You see I can
make myself quite at home,"
And the next moment Smith was install-
ed with his legs under the mahogany, just
as another peal was rattled upon the knock-
er, and rung on the visitor's bell. Brown
was the new comer. A bow, such as Smith
had made, a speech, such as Smith had
spoken, and he was installed by the side of
that worthy gentleman, the Joneses, hus-
band and wife, putting the best possible face
upon the matter. But worse remained be-
hind. Another alarum at the gate, another
visitor, and, as the stage directions of the
French Drama have it, le memejeu. From
that moment the knocker never lay still-a
continuous train of guest poured in upon
the stupified Joneses. From every part f',
the town-north, south, east, and west, they
came flocking-every one hungry,, every
one expecting dinner, and, extraordinary to
state, eVery one having dropped in by the
merest chance. In fine, by five o'clock
Jones had near torty of his acquaintanc s
assembled in the hospitable halls of Honey-
moon Villa> Mrs. Jones looked as if shw
were walking about in her sleep: the girl
who opened the door was in one continuous
giggle; but the cook below was reported as
verging on blue convulsions; and poor
Jones himself was actually obliged to sally
forth and scour every tavern in the neighl-
borhood in search of cold meat, chops, and
oiher exiernpote dishes.
I don't know whether the host malgre
lui everfdistinctly found out the trick which
had been played on him: but it was a de-
served one. and what is more, it cured him
of the Humbug of general invitation.
Not less humorous is he when describing
t h e ... ... "
S Effft- A 1, NUMBUG.
After all., Humbug is universal, just he-
cause it is' necessary. Some people have
too much of it for their neighbor's comfort,
and others have~loo little of it for their
own. "
There shall-be two men, doctors, for ex-

the passive system. He starts a brougham

hires people to alarm all'the, neighborhood

To ihe members of the Legislatur;e.
GENTLEMEN:-I have; at the soliciiation
of a number ofyour honorable body; con-
sented that, my name flight be used as a
candidate far Door-keeper idt he iowet
branch, viz;. the House of Representatives,
confident of mny capacity to discharge the
duties of the post, equally Well if not better,
than any other man you could select, I
deem it not -presumption in me to ask the
favot at your hands; nor will you so consi-
der it when 1 present some of" thy claims to
your consideration. I have no objection to
those worthy gentlemen who are candidates
for the same office, but whilst I can s;ay
nothing against their must confess I can
say but little for them. It is true, Mr,
Branham's claims are urgent, and next to
my own in point of importahne. He is a
soldier, a gentleman and a Sicholar, no doubt
of it in the world. Brt I have all these
qualifications myself besides I am well
qualified for the post. As ito my friend
Allnut, he may make 'good Door-keeper,
but he has been in the Legislature and haw
fed from the public cr'b long enouigh ; be-
sides I doubt if he ever smelled guhpowder,
as I have. As to Bill Camphell. I know not
that he ever spilled blood for his country,
or served her very much in any other way.
Whbist I was in Mexico undergoing the
hardShips of camp life, lie was at homeplay-
ing thefiddle. Whilst I was tireading the
sentinel's walk, exposed to the storm and
the rain, the sun and the devil; at mid-night
and mid-day, in obedience io the call of
my country-he was dancing and frolickitg
about with the women. Whilst I was wad-
ing up to. my knees in blood and dirt, fight-
ing killing and slaying tle enemies of our
common country, at Buena Vista, he was
screwing around ihroughthe country-; elec-
tioneering for office, and living onf Ihe best
of the country. Gendlemen-I have fought
for my country. I was of the first who sw-aled
the dizzy heights of Black Fort at Monte-
rey, I was before the foremost in Gen.
Butler's desperate charge at that town, .and
at one time changed the fortunes of thea0'ay
by my acts of gallantry and ihtrepidity.-
At that desperate; awifuil h itl'ob!Buena
Vista, whten 'every so.ul was 'require( toract
the part of a host, and where we all lived'on
powder and. lead for three days, and- only
for drink, the blood of the foe, it was there
that I rose above myself in courage and- gal-
lant daring.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I hive nnlv to
ask that you will vote for whorm i bu please;
and that you will please to vort for -me.

Election of Speaker of the House of Representa-
tives-Mr. Winthrop-Mr. John W. Davis-The
Wilmot Proviso-Southern Democ-ra-ts and Sou-
JANUARY 13, 1848.
ESSRS. EDITORS : Since the election of
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
the Southern Democratic papers have been
filled-with denuntiations of Southern Whigs
who cast their votes for the Hon. Robert C.
:Winthro-p. The last mail brought me a
btidget of these papers, from my own State,
containing the most illiberal and abusive
,Aarticles of myself, with such choice expres-
sions as "6Traitor to the South," "False to
his own Country," &c. for voting for THE
The editorial corps in other States have,
; probably, had more regard for propriety, de-
-cency, and truth, than in Florida; but there
are certain facts connected with the election
of Speaker of (he House of Representatives,
which are of sufficient general interest to
justify me in asking a place for this comtnu-
nication in the columns of your paper.
I1 yield to, no man in devotion to the rights
and interests of the South. As a Southern
man, I most cheerfully gave my vote for Mr.
Winthrop, and mean to make no -apology
for it. All admit his fitness for the office of
:Speaker. No member of the House is per-
haps better qualified to discharge its duties.
I By far the greater number of the Speak-
ers of the House of Representatives have
been Southern inen. At the commence-
meat of the present session the Northern
Whigs presented a candidate peculiarly qua-
lified, from his' talents, high character, gen-
tlemanly department, and parliamentary ex-
perience. He was elected-not one South-
ern Whig voting against him. To have
opposed his election because he represented
a constituency whose institutions do not
tolerate slavery, would have been an act of
madness and criminal folly. It would have
been suicidal, fatal to the' South. By so
doing, Southern Representatives would, in-
deed, have shown themselves "TRAITORS
It is well known that the South is in a
minority in the Congressional and Electoral
representation. What would be our condi-
tion if we take the position that we will not
support a man for even a secondary office,
who does not come from our own section of
country ? Will not the North retaliate?
Can it be expected that the people of the
free States will give to us the monopoly of
all the offices of Govwrnnient ? They can
control all bur important elections, and will
not submit to such unreasonable exactions
on the part of the South. Is it wise in us
to forget the admonitions of the Father of
his country, who counselled us to beware of
sectional issues? Shall we wantonly seek
to involve ourselves in angry strife and bit-
terness of feeling with our Northern breth-
ren, and court a geographical contest, in
which every advantage will be on the side of
those we would make our enemies ? The
t- v -rsal \ry -(f h -s. \v'*1^ ^ ^w ts
maintenance of Zts rights, but to be JUST.
The Whig party, North and South, is
characterized by a spirit of conservatism.
It embraces in its comprehensive view the
whole country. It is not influenced by a
narrow, contracted, selfish, sectional policy.
At this moment, it is well known that most
of the Northern W/higs are willing to cast
their vote for a Southlern man for President
of the-United States. And shall it be said
that we of the South should -force upon
them a geographical issue, and compel our
Northern friends to vote for a Northern man,
and thus elect a Northern President, North-
ern Speaker, Northern Clerk, Northern offi-
cers of all kinds, and establish a Northern
Government ?
The accomplished Speaker of the House
of Representatives, in his own State, resist-
ed successfully the adoption of the principle
upon which Southern Democrats insist that
Southern Whigs should have acted. At the
Springfield (Mass.) Convention, held in
September last, a resolution was offered
"that the Whigstof Massachusetts will sup-
port no man for the office of President and
Vice President, but such as are known by
,* their acts or declared opinions to be opposed
to the extension of slavery." Mr. Winthrop
opposed and prevented tlhe passage of this
resolution--avowing his determination to
support "a slaveholder for the Presidency,
.should, he be tlhecandidate of the Whig
It was the duty of Southern Whigs to
USstian such a man. 1 could not reconcile
it to myself ta adopt a'false principle of ac-
tion which this gentleman had repudiated,
Sand make him the first victim to Southern
*selfishness, by refusing in vote for him as
*presiding officer' of the House of Represen-
..tatives, after lhe had pledged himself to vote
(for the Whig candidate as presiding officer
,of" the nation, shuhld he come from the
, .-section of the country I represent.
The unpardonable sin which Mr. WVin-
,4hrop has committed was in offering a pro-
.viso to the Oregon bill at the 2dl session of
,the 28th Congress to the effi ct that there

' ,shall be neither slavery nor involuntary ser-
Nitude id the said territory, otherwise than
ja the. punishment of crimes whereof the
4)-arty shall haie been duly convicted." For
ahis any language fails to furnish words
,strong enough to express the indignant feel-
ings of the Richmond Enquirer and other
Democratic papers in my own and other
Southern States. What will the country
,think of the affected indignation and pre-
tended devotion of these journals to South-
ern rights, when i-tis told that Mr. John W.
Davis, the late Democratic Speaker of the
House of Representatives, voted for this
-same ,,iniquitous proviso," and that the
.name o'f Mr. Davis is found recorded with
,that of Mr. Winthrop thro-ughout the whole
of the proceedings of the House on the said
,Oregon bill ? And what can exceed the
impudence of these exclusitve friends of the
.South in their present "hypocritical profes-
'.sions ? Every Democratic Representative c
*of the last Congress voted for Mr. Davis.
f these Democratic editors really believe
,that the Southern Whigs who voted for Mr.
Winthrop have, by so doing, proved them- t
-selves traitors to the South," what term, d
according to their own confessions, should i
be applied to them for their support of a ]
man for the identical office whose votes are r
identical with those of Mr. Winthrop? B
The Richmond Enquirer, speaking of t
this subject, says: ,'But this did not satisfy 1
:Nr. W.inthrop. Qn the 1st of February, [

'59 r-~ 5C3 tl~ ."Lt~

1845, when the bill was under consideration,
he moved, as a section to the bill, the iden-
ticalproviso which is at this time called the
Wilmot Proviso." This assertion has been
made and repeated in most of the Southern
papers. I hold them to it, and out of
their own mouths will I condemn them."
Mr. John W. Davis voted for this proviso.
The Democrats of the last Congress stand
self-convicted of having elected to the
Speakership an advocate of the indentical
proviso" introduced by Mr. Wilnot. I do
not regard Mr. Winthrop's proviso "identi-
cal" with Mr. Wilmot's. The Democrats
say they do, and, so believing, voted for its
The offence which the Southern Whigs
of the present Congress have committed is,
not that they have voted fora gentleman who
sustained the anti-slavery proviso to the Ore-
gon bill, but that they have elected a Whig
Speaker of a Whig House of Representa-
tives. Had Mr. Winthrop been a Democrat,
he would have been enlogized by his present
revilers as a Northern man with Southern
After this "infamous proviso" had been
appended to the Oregon bill, every South-
ern Democrat but THREE voted for it ; Mr.
Winthrop voting against the bill with the
proviso, and Mr. Davis voting./or it. (See
House Journal, 2d Session, 28th Congress,
pages 318 to 322 inclusive.)
I make no apology for Mr. Winthorp for
having introduced this proviso, though he
voted against the bill; much less can I
justify Mr. Davis, who voted both for the
proviso a-nd the bill. Southern Democrats
who voted with him can doubtless make an
excuse for him.
The charge of want of fealty to the South
comes with a bad grace from gentlemen
whosupported Mr. Davis, and most of whom
contributed to the election of Mr. Van Bu-
ren, who acknowledged the "right of Con-
gress to abolish slavery in the District of
Columbia," and who, in the New York
Convention, voted to placefi'ee negroes on a
fooling with whites.
It is charged that this proviso to the Ore-
gon bill was the origin of the famous "Wil-
mot proviso." But it will be found, by re-
ference to ihe same Journal, page 260, that
another bill had been previously passed
which may justly claim the paternity of this
distinguished offspring. I allude to the
joint resolution for the annexation of
Texas." The third condition" on which
the consent of Congress" was given to the
annexation of Texas concludes thus :
And such States as may be formed out
of that portion of said territory lying south
of thirty-six degrees thirty minutes north
latitude, commonly known as the Missouri
compromise line, shall be admitted into the
Union with or without slavery, as the peo-
ple of each State asking admission may de-
sire ; and in such State or States as shall be
formed out of said territory north of said
Missouri compromise line SLAVERY OR IN-
VOLUNTARY SERVITUDE (except for crintes)
This is the true, bona fide Wilmot proviso.
_1. _- W inthrop's proviso applied to territ.,rv
aE*efady-leto7g-cn'-E~^ a tjd
which properly came within the principle of
the Missouri compromise ; but here we see
the principle for the first time extended to
foreign territory. And we find every South-
ern Democrl, our special and peculiar
friends, with Mr. John W. Davis, voting for
it Mr. Wilmot proposes that his proviso
shall extend to all territory -Orr..Sf/dr to be
annexed; this "condition" was applied to
territory thereafter to be annexed.
The ,entire Democratic party, except Mr.
Holmes, of South Carolina, voted for Mr.
B. B. French for the office of Clerk, at the
very time they were condemning the South-
ern Whigs for having voted for Mr. Win-
throp. And I have not heard a suspicion
expressed that Mr. French was opposed to
the Wilmot proviso."
The war against Mr. Winthrop and those
who voted for him has been renewed at the
South because of his late vote to refer cer-
tain abolition petitions to one of the stand-
ing committees of the'House.
A W/hig House of Representatives (the
27th Congress) refused to repeal a rule for-
bidding the reception of abolition petitions.
The 28lh Congress, having, as I am inform-
ed, about seventy Democratic majority, did
repeal this rule. On the 10th December,
1844, (see House Journal, 2d Session, 28th
Congress, page 58,) Mr. Adams offered a
petition praying ,the abolition of slavery in
the Distriet of Columbia. On the question,
"shall the petition be received," the vote
stood, yeas 107, nays81. (Page 50.) Among
the yeas were Messrs. John W. Davis and
R. C. Winthiop. A motion to lay on the
table was lost, (page 51.) The petition was
referred to the Comtnittee for the District
of Columbia. (Page 52.) These petitions
continued to be referred to the committees
after that time. In the present House of
Representatives, Which has a small Whig
e:fijoi-iy, the vote on one occasion was
equally divided, and made the vote of the
.Speaker necessary; a circumstance which
never occurred with the 28th Democratic

Congress, in which these petitions were re-
ferred without the aid of the Speaker'svote.
It is now pretended that Mr. Winthrop's
vote has let in a -flood of abolition petitions"
to disturb the peace of the country. This
" flood was let in by the vote on the peti-
tion presented by Mr. Adams in December,
1844, for the reception of which Mr. Davis
voted, as well as Mr. Winthrop. What
Democrat refused to vote for Mr. Davis
after this vote? None. And why this de-
nunciation of Mr. Winthrop? There is
but one answer-Mr. Davis is a Democrat,
and Mr. Winthrop a Whig! Their acts A
are the same, but their offence widely dif-
ferent. r
It is well known to those who are engaged t
in this nnholy purpose to stir the blood and a
exasperate the feelings of the South on this a
delicate subject of slavery, that the object t
of the Abolitionists can be obtained, so far s
as the reference of their petitions is con- f
cerned, without a vote of the House-sim- r
ply by presenting them at the Clerk's table. r
They have been repeatedly so referred.- v
The committee have in all cases reported
them back to the House, and asked to be
discharged from their consideration. This p
is the course approved by Mr. Winthrop. p
1, in common with most of the Southern IN
members, have opposed their reference.- 0
But the idea that the reference of one of t]
these petitions to a committee by a Whig o
House of Kepresentatives renders our slave w
property Jes secure than the samp reference N

which had frequently been made by a Dem-
ocratic House, is too palpably absurd to de-
serve a moment's consideration.
The newborn zeal of the Democratic
journals, add their hypocritical cant about
the invasion of the rights of the South,"
- the South in danger," and such stuff, pro-
ceeds from no peculiar devotion to the
South, but from blind partisan feeling, which
makes them applaud or overlook in one of
their own party what they condemn in a po-
litical opponent.
It is further charged that the Whigs of
the South, in voting for Mr. Winthrop,
"voted for an abolitionist." 1 am not char-
itable enough to believe that this is not a
wilful misstatement. These journalists know
such not to be the fact.
Mr. Winthrop is opposed to the further
extension of slavery. But what Southern
heart does not beat in unison with the fol-
lowing patriotic sentiment proposed by him
at a festival in Faneuil Hall on the 4th of
July, 1845:
Oar Country: Bounded by the St.
John's and the Sabine, or however bounded
or described, and be the measurements more
or less, still our country-to be cherished in
all our hearts, to be defended by all our
I shall not stop to defend Mr. Winthrop
against this malicious accusation. Every
man who reads knows the bitterness of the
abolition opposition to him in his own dis-
trict. The abolitionists in the House of
Representatives refused to vote for him be-
cause, in their opinion, he was not sound
on the question of slavery." You have
only to reler to any abolition paper of late
date to find it filled with abusive articles of
Mr. Winthrop. Northern Abolitionists and
Southern Democrats are equally viol-ent in
their denunciation of him and those who
voted for him.
The object of this communication, I re-
peat, is not to make an apology for my vote
for Mr. Winthrop-I cannot apologize for
doing what is right-but to expose the hy-
pocrisy and misrepresentations of Southern
Democratic editors, who are either wilfully
or ignorantly misleading the honest people
of the South.
Very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,

[From the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.]
The aspect of political affairs at Wash-
ington is amusing to the last degree. Ne-
ver, perhaps, were the time-servers of party
more at fault. So many Presidential can-
didates are in the field, and so various ap-
pear to be the opinions of men, that truck-
sters know not which way to double, nor
turn-coats when to take their next somerset.
To-day Buchanan stock is up, and to-mor-
row down. Now Cass has the plaudits of
the hour, now he loses them. One week
Scott is talked of by the whigs, and the next
hurriedly repudiated. The presence of Mr.
Clay, who comes like the ghost of Banquo,
does not increase the harmony of the scene.
We gaze with secret pleasure on these
omens of the breaking up of old parties.-
They have had their day ; they have an-
swered their purpose; and, with a hopeful
trust in the future, we look for better ones
to come! Every age is more democratic
than the preceding. The doctrines that
su-ite,! ourr f,-.r,_-'f_'th, pte n,,i liberaleaQugh
for us: and the principles which t ,y
died for, would have horrified the P iri-
tan's. True wisdom consists in keeping up
with ihe'spirit of the hour, John Newton
was one of the best nen of his day, yet he
went to the Guinea coast for slaves. Cot-
Ion Mather was the light of his generation,
but he believed in witchcraft. Yet if New-
ton or Mather lived now, and still retained
the principles on which they then acted,
what tyrants and bigots they would be con-
sidered Men die, but parties survive, and
surviving perpetuate doctrines which ought
to be exploded. Hence every generation
should have a new parry. We see, to-day,
the dominant party still adhering to for-
mulas, which, however good they were half"
a century ago, are now behind the wants of
the age, while the whigs, with even more
veneration for the past, mumble over many
dogmas which went out of fashion, with all
sensible men, when toupees and tuckers
were buried with our grandfathers.
But, there is another reason why we re-
joice to see old parties breaking up. It is
t~he tendency of parties, as of dynasties and
religions, to grow tyrannical, as they in-
crease in age and power. At first a party
professes tire utmost liberality, bul, in the
course of years, it becomes prescriptive; so
that the sane leaders who began by profess-
ing "freedom of opinion to all," end by
disowning every man who refuses blindly to
obey them. A party man, in our genera-
tion, is a slav~e. Jefferson went-into power
as the apostle of toleration : Polk has grown
as bigottedl and relentless as any inquisitor.
Yet the one claims to sit in the seat and ex-
pound the doctrines of the other. Fatal
delusion to himself and followers! Jefferson

was a man ahead of his age; Polk is a man
thirty years behind it. By this assertion we
do not mean to be personal to the President;
we speak of him only as the representative
of his party:-and we say, without fear of
contradiction, that it is time that his party,
as at present organized, was broken up. It
is no longer the party of freemen, but of
drilled Janissarie's-no longer the exponent
of the untrammelled will of the people, but of
the wire-pullers who call ,themselves the par-
ty, and who, likefales priests of Isis, profane
the holy mysteries of democracy with their jug-
gling tricks.
Here, then, are two good reasons why we
rejoice over the breaking, up of' the old par-
ties. Yet the leader of neither seem
aware of their coming doom. Oh! miser-
able blindness. The Assyrian, we are
told, feasted when the enemy was in his
streets. The inhabitants of the wodld be-
fore the flood were dancing and giving in

U. S. FINANCES.-In the House of Re-
presentatives, on Wednesday, a bill was re-
ported from the Committee of Ways and s
Means authorizing a new Loan of $18,500,- v
)00, at, six per cent. It was announced
hat a bill would be reported from the Min- v

adoption, is not believed by any man ol
sense and correct judgment. It is a weali
invention of the pliant tools of the Execu-
tive, to prop a falling cause.
Such being the opinions of the WhigsE
as to Gen. Taylor's advice to the President
the argument sought to be built up by th(
Savannah Georgian, as a conclusion to theii
false premises, falls to the ground. The
allegation of inconsistency is not maintaiti-
ed-and the feelings falsely attributed to
Gen. Taylor. of distrust for his Whig fellow-
citizens, is totally without foundation ir
fact, not to be deduced from his acts or ex.
pressions, the existence of which rests ot
no other basis than the idle and envious in-
ventions of such papers as the Savannal
Georgian, whose course towards its polio.
tical opponents seems to be governed by the
sentiment common to a bigotted People e1
old, that "No good can come out of Naza.
What end the Georgian and other demo.
cratic papers hope to subserve by constantly
harpjg on the impropriety of the Whigs
supporting Gen. Taylor for the Presidency,
we are at a loss to imagine. If the design
is to turn the Whigs from such a course
such advice, coming from such a quarter, wil
be received with the slight consideration
it is entitled to. If' the object be tc
inflame the resentment of General Tayloi
against his W-hig fellow-citizens, there agait
will they be at fault, both because the oil
Hero has reason to know who are his friends
-and so far as the war is concerned, has
had occular demonstration on the plains ol
Mexico, and in the Halls of Congress, thai
the Whigs are true to their country in timc
of peril, and ready to support him on the
field of battle, against the fire of the enem
in front, and to protect him athome from the
" fire in the rear"-and the effort will fail,
because he recognizes in the authors of ii
the Organs of that Remnant of Hunkerisw
who sought to asperse his fair fame by their
Monterey capitulation censure.

The citizens of Apalachicola will be call.
ed on to vote, next Monday, on the question
of abolishing the charter of the City. Al-
though our intended removal from the City,
removes much of the interest which we
should else feel in the matter, yet we are
not altogether without some feeling of the
kind, and we are led thereby to make some
remarks on the subject.
In the first place, we will premise, that in
our opinion-and we believe that other gen-
tlemen of the legal profession agree with t1,
-the act abolishing the City Charter will
be declared null and void, because the no-
(ice which the Constitution requires, before
legislating on corporations, either in crea-
ting them or altering their charters, was noi
given. If we are right, the vote on Monda)
will be of little importance.
When a People do away with the form o
Government under which they live, therf
should'be some great and weighty conside-
ration for so doing-and they should bE
prepared with a substitute calculated to sup.
ply the defects and remedy the evils com.
plained of in the old system. What ma3
be the evils complained of, which led to thE
passage of the act of the Legislature, we
are not informed-but presume that th(
principal causes which led thereto, were the
heavy laxes levied by the former Councils.
and the profuse expenditure of the funds o!
the City. Now, inasmuch as any evils o1
such nature aie clearly to be referred to the
manner in which the powers granted by the
charter were exercised, and not to the char-
ter itself, it would seem that the reform de-
sired is best attained by means of a change
of rulers, er a change of conduct on the
part of the existing authorities. Good gov-
ernment does not always flow, as a conse-
quence, from wise systems,-we must elect
proper Legislators, and instruct them as to
our wishes, when elected, to obtain wise
legislation,-without this, the best systems
will fail.
Now, inasmuch as the present Council
hes set to work in earnest to retrench the
city expenditures, and have adopted means
to reduce the expenses down to about

$2,400, for the current year, against about
$5,500 last year, which reduction of ex-
penses will occasion a corresponding abate-
ment of taxation, we deem itzmore advisable
to await the termination of their term of
office, in order to ascertain whether or not
it is practicable to obtain the reform desired
without an alteration of our present charter.
So much for the propriety of an altera-
tion of our system. But we have to add
the following reasons, why we could not
vote for the abolition of the charter under
the act in question :
1st. No substitute is provided, so that
when the charter is abolished, there will be
no existing system of municipal govern;-
2d. The property held by, and debts due
to, the old corporation, will be entirely lost
to the citizens-no succeeding act of incor-
poration can invest them with the rights of
the old municipality. The lots, squares,
&c., given by the Land Company to the
city, will revert to the owners. The debts
due the city cannot be recovered.
3d. Under the general incorporation act,
taxes can only be levied on real estate.-
Draymen and retailers of liquors can be
made to pay taxes in the shape of licenses;

but bank agencies, insurance companies,
and persons doing business, who do not re-
side here, cannot be taxed.
4th. None but Freeholders can be Trus-
tees or Councilmen, a provision which par-
takes too much of an aristocracy, and the
operation of which would debar many wor-
thy men the privilege of serving as Trustees,
who might not be able or willing to own
land in the City.
For these reasons, we deem the adoption
of the act in question not advisable, and we
trust the citizens will refuse their assent to it.
A large aud enthusiastic meeting of the
friends of Gen. Taylor, took place at New
Orleans on the 22d ult., at which the fol-"
lowing resolutions were adopted, and Dele-
gates appointed to represent New Orleans
in the People's Convention, to be holden in
that city on the 22d February, to nominate
Taylor Electors. The Delta says that in-
fluential men of both parties joined in the
call :
Whereas, Union, concert and co-operation
are essential to the success of all great en-
terprises, especially those of a political char-
acter, and to produceesuch co-operation it
has been proposed to hold a Contention of
Delegate;/ from the several parishes of this
State on/the 22d day of February next, to
nominate Electors who are favorablejto.,th
election of Gen. ZACHARY TAYLOR
to the Presidency, it is therefore
1. Resolved, That we cordially 'approve
of the said Convention proposed to be holL
den in the city of New Orleans, at the time-
aforesaid, and that One Hundred Delegates;
be appointed by the Chair to represent this
city and parish in the said Convention.
2. Resolved, That, confiding as we do, in"
the wisdom, justice, moderation, and Re-
publican simplicity of Gen. Tayl'or, as illus-
trated by his whole lifeand in his- patriotic
devotion to his country as displayed in so
many battle fields, we will not approach him
to ask for pledges, given on most occasions
by politicians, but are content to look upon
the past as a sufficient guarantee for his fu-
ture conduct ; we wish to present him to the
country the Candidate, as he will be the
President, of the People,-and nat of a party.
3. Resolved, That we take pleasure in an-
nouncing to the friends of Gen. Taylor all
over the Republic, that we have the best
reasons for assuring them that, come what
may come, Gen. Taylor will not retire from
the position in relation to the Presidency in
which the people have placed him.
4. Resolved, That it is the sense of this
meeting, that the refusal of Gen. Taylor to
become the candidate of any particular par-
ty, so f'r from constituting a just ground of
complaint, should be considered as evidence
of his superior qualifications for the dis-
charge of the duties of President.
5. Resolved, That, in electing Gen. Tay-
lor, to the Presidential chair, we secure,
in the administration of public affairs, a
strict observance of the Constitution, and
ihe general principles of policy maintained
by Wasbin.ton, Jeffersion and Madison.
6. Resolved, That the loify patriotism,
the sound judgment, the sterling integrity,
of Gen. Taylor, and more especially, the
eminent services he has rendered the coun-
iay during the present war with Mexico.
constitute the surest guarantee that the
future conduct of this war will be safe iii
his hands, and that no treaty of peace can
receive his sanction that will compromit the
honor and interests of our country.
7. Resolved, That our hearts are filled
with joy and ride, at the hope of" seeing
in the elevated place 0nce filled by our il-
lustrious Washington, a man who, like him,
can know no party but'his conntry, and be
ruled by no motives but duty aud patriot-

The Savannah Georgian has an article
under the above head, the object of which
appears to be to demonstrate that Gen.
Taylor will not allow himself to be made the
candidate of the Whig Party, and that Mr.
Clay wishes to be, and the Georgian con-
cludes by saying, that the counsels of the
Whigs are troubled, and the object of their
ultimate selection uncertain.
We entirely agree with the Georgian that
Gen. Taylor will not accept the nomination
of any party. He has announced such to
be his resolution. Mr. Clay's friends will
no doubt press his claims, and he may be
nominated ; but we very much doubt, whe
other he will run, especially if the Southern
States are not represented in the Conven-
tion, and we do not believe that any one of
them, save Kentucky, will be so represented.
When the Georgian speaks of the incon-
sistency of the Whig party, (and of course
it means to include the members of that
party individually and generally,) in sup-
porting General Taylor and opposing the
maintenance of the war-the Georgian as-
sumes premises, not sustained by the course
of any respectable portion of the Whig
party in the Union. The Whigs, as a body,
as private citizens, either by volunteering
their services to fight the battles in Mexico,
as well as by giving it every encouragement
in their power, have aided to carry on the
war to a successful completion. Any ex-
amples to the contrary, and that there are
such, we do not deny, are but few and sad
exceptions. So in the State Legislatures,
and in Congress, a very large majority of the
Whigs have ever been found ready, and
willing, to aid the Executive with their
votes, in measures calculated to bring the
war to a successful issue. But, when the
origin of the war comes in question, the
Whigs dare say, what John C. Calhoun
and a host of other great men, and pure
patriots, have said: that THE WAR WAS


The assertion that because Gen. Taylor
advised the movement to the Rio Grande,
ordered by the President-and that there-
fore if the President acted unconstitution-
- ally. Gen. Taylor is also to blame for the
advice-is a subterfuge, the resort to which
as a defence, by the President and his sup-
porters, is strong evidence of his and their
consciousness of his guilt. A-dmit that Gen.
Taylor did undert,.4-t:'io give advice to the
President as to a political movement, if it
turns out that the adoption of the advice led
the country into an unnecessary war, and
that the act adviseI was unconstitutional-
inasmuch as Gen. Taylor was not invested
by the People with the power to advise -the
President in the management of the Foreign
Relations of the country, Mr. Polk cannot
take refuge from condemnation behind such
advice. That another individual agreed
with him in the propriety of the course he
pursued, should no more be permitted to be
plead by Mr. Polk in exculpation of his
fault, than the same defence would be al-
lowed to avail in a Court of Justice, when
offered by a man charged with a criminal
offence. More especially is such defence
untenable, when the act charged, is the vio-
lation of the sworn duty of the President to
support the Constitution, with the nature
of which obligation he is presumed to be
fully acquainted, whilst the party advising,
is, because of his profession, to be deemed
comparatively ignorant of the restrictions
which are imposed by the Constitution on
the Chief Magistrate of the Union, and
certainly, he should not be deemed, when
advising a military movement, 'to have
weighed and determined the political con-
sequences which might result from its adop-
tion, or the right of the President to order
it to be made.
The light in which Gen. Taylor's letter,
advising the movement to the Rio Grande,
is viewed by the Whigs, and we dare say
that Gen. T. will so explain it-is that it
was intended to give the President the ben-
efit of his military knowledge and skill, as
a General in command of an army, destined
to carry out certain views of State, of which
he had been apprized. He left the deter-
mination of the constitutionality of the act to
civilians-'the President and his Cabinet-
the parties vested by the Constitution with
the power and supposed to possess the
ability, to determine such questions. That
a tnan like Gen. Taylor, proverbially modest,
and deferential in the highest degree to his I
superior officers, -a man, who had made J
war, and not grave affairs of State, his 4
study, would, when a Colonel, undertake to 4
weigh the constitutionality of a measure (
which might involve the serious conse-
quence of a bloody war, and after having
satisfactorily settled the propriety of it in
hii own mind, advise the President to its

pondent of the New, York Evening Mirror
thus refers to this excellent officer under

"Major Bliss arrived in the city yester-
day, and receives on all sides the warmest
welcome. He wears no military toggery,
nat even a "button;" and passes quietly
through the crowd without exciting atten-
tion. Not a corporal has returniA from
the camp, but has made more display in
,Washington than this brave and accom-
plished companion of' the greatest of" having

him for a very modest clergyman, and from
his voluntary conversation, no one would
learn that he had ever faced a foe o'r fought
a battle. He is just such a mah-as,:one
might suppose Gen. Taylor would- select for
his counsel on the field, and for comliamiou-

i'tngirons of their avarice. It is time the
.. oice of the people was heaid in ihe coun-,
ci'lsof the 'ntibn, and the vices of dem-.i
.gogues superceded by the virtues of patriots.
Weary of party intriues-sick of cab'als-
I disgusted with the chicanery of leaders-the
whole country sighs for the honest ruler of
a great mind, combined with a good heart,
such as distinguishes the immortal con-
quvror of Buena Vista-whose soul is am-
ple enough to feel for the whole people, as
it they were his own sons and daughterg-
and to cleave to the Unioi, as the only bul-
wark of our national safely a;nd greatness-
and to the Constitution as the sheet anchor
.of the Union.
,L What a noble condition has Gen. Taylor
u)iIt forward, as the basis of his being a can-
didate for the Presidency. Think and feel,
he says as Americans-nominate me as a
candidate of the American people, and I will
set'rve you-but never as the candidate of'a
action. Here, then, is his appeal to your
feeling as patriots. On. a large and lofty
scale--he begs you to render homage and
reverence to the Cornstitation, and forego
the paltry bickerings of party jealousy, for
,he sordid traffic now carried on for the
Spoils of office. And what is the response
to his appeal Why, that a true American
feelings has been wakened throughout the
whole conniry. Hearts bound and leap to
uneet him in his glorious devotion to our
iiaihn'il fame. Enthusiasm has been kind-
led in every bosom, open to generous emo-
iiops towards the man who would despise
even the Presidency, on terms derogatory to
h'is own country.
!Here then is a man worthy of power. A
man who would not accept it on any terms,
inconsistent with honor, purity and inde-
pendence. Who would scorn to bring down
tlhe glorious fiibric ofa aoreat Republic, to be
,niade the torturing bed of a cabal of poliri-
,cal butchers-a mnere engine to gratify am-
bition on- one hand, and wreak vengeance on
the other-to make the ballot box the leper
house of perjured voters, and the chair of
State the idle pageant of a club room, devoid
of all moral power--all volition-all con-
science-all genius-all learning and all
judgement! Here we behold a man of the
same mould and metal as George Washinig-
,ton, who holds that his duly to his country
is absolute and imperious, and admits ot no
mean and huckstering compromises with
,..factions, clubs', vices, or unholy combino-
(ions, fatal to the naticavil honor and chasti-
ty-. Cne who recoils from glory, even if it
is to be won at the s:crifice of honor, sel(-
esteem or patriotic devotion. Who wants
i not the Presidency as a tool of party, but
Who would accept as the" place consecrated
lo national good. This is the glorious dis-
iinction of an honest heart; who has no idea,
of power, but as identical witha the fame,
and lustre, anid-magnificence of his country.
How such a man towers above and over-
.,tlops all competitors' [tow they shrink
into pigmies round the base of his greatness.
He is such a man as Hamlet describes--one
whom he could have
"' Wore in his heart of hearts,
Aye in bis heart's core." *'
Do not believe that the American people
re' insensible to such exalted virtues.-

.Generaus and enthusiastic, they love Zach-
Sry Taylor as a father, cherish him as a
friend, and will reward-him as a benefactor.
They will trust him to the most unbounded
..xtent, because he makes no efforts to suc-
ceed by specious professions, false promises,
or deceptive arts. Six hundred public jour-
.tinals have raised his flag-and ere long the
whole country will 0,,- ;, e spln. o(

1his success to that station, which cannot be
better filled than by an honest man devoted
to his country-the Union that binds States
into one, and the Constitution which guides
pto the-temple of patriotism.
: Who, then, can be superior as a candi-
date or as a President to Zachary Taylor?
Some advocate what they call a whole-
.:pgled whig"--others." a whole-souled de-
mocrat." One paper says on the side of the
whigs.--1 He is the best candidate, who be-
ing altogether whig, and wholly worthy of
the office, can secure a whig victory. He
must be of" our ilk."
This does not describe Zachary Taylor-
for he is not altogether Whig, nor is he al-
o together democrat. He is superior to
., either of the candidates embraced in the
two definitions-for the definitions will ap-
ply equally to any party who only want au-
tomaton of party in the Presidental chair.
Now we deny that any man wholly devoted
to either party can be wholly worthy of the
office, unless whiggery or democracy are
superior to patriotism. Washington was

wholly worthy of the office, and yet he is
neither a democrat nor a whig. Zachary
Taaylor will be triumphantly elected-and
yet-hiis election would not prove a whig
victory--but a victory of popularity and vir-
tue over faction-a victory of the American
people over parties--a victory of the consti-
tution over the elements of discord-and of
the Union over the incantations of sedition.
And yet we hear the organs of factions cry-
ing out for an immacnlaie President. What
an infatuation, kindled by the spirit of selfish-
ness to bind the eyes of patriotism to the
virtues of a public benefactor. The best
candidate !" exclaims a party organ, is a
candidate of our clique! Why? Oh! be-
cause he would sacrifice the interests of the
country-aye, even the rights of the people
-to gratifyz the selfishiess of the party to
whom he iwas indebted for his office Herd
is the point. A party makes a bargain, tacit
and implied of course, with their candidate,
that if elected-we, the party, shall be the
elect, and the country a secondary consi-
deration! Can any state of political senti-
ment or morals be more degrading, more
infamous--for a republican people, who
are endowed with. violation and free suffrages,
to make their government the perfection of
reason, justice and right? The people are
sick of these trading candidates of trading
parties; and have resolved to have better
candidates and better Presidents than parties
can make-and for this reason they have
nominated and will elect the Hero of Buena
Vista-the immortal Zachary Taylor, as
President of the United States.
"'People reproach me with having
stolen pictures in Spain, but I bought them,
sir-bought them !' "
,frdeed !' said the listener, with an in-
credulous elevation of the eyebrows,.
',yes, I bought them, sir!' returned
Soult. 'There, for instance,-is Murillo,
the famous paralytic--it cost me two
mnks-' Two monks," ejaculated the lis-
tener'. 'Yes, two monks-two as fine, fat,
sleek, oily men ofGod as you ever laid eyes
But two rtyonks for a picture ?' exclaim-
ed the astonished listener.
'Yes, I gave two monks for lhat picture,
sir!' said Soult and it was in this way that
the bargain was made:--ttake some more of
the Burguudy.) One even;og, after having
been pushed rather hard by W0llington and
his red-coated rascals, I and a gi'eat num-
ber of my men took up our quarters in a
convent. We made the lazy monks give us
a good supper and plenty of good wine, ana
then we went off to bed.
" Next morning when the men were mus-
tered, it was reported lo me that some twen-
ty or thirty of my grenadiers had been
found with their throats cut--he good
mouks had just severed their wind pipes as
they slept, and sure enough, the poor fel-
lows were as dead as slaughtered sheep.-
Well, I immediately had all the monks
up, and said to them; "you infernal vaga-
bonds, I can't afford to lose my grenadiers
in this way, and to convince of the fact, I
intend hanging every one of you!"-Such
a wail of despair I never heard, followed by
piteous supplications for pardon. After
frightening them well, I consented so far to
pardon themn as only to hang the same num-
ber of them as they had killed of our men-
it was twenty odd, and they were to draw
lors. The doomed lot were soon set one
side, the ropes knotted around their necks,
and my men were just about stringing them
up, when two of the victims declared them-
selves to be the Abbot and his assistant.-
'Sorry 1 can't oblige you, gentlemen, but
really (fill your glasses) I must hang you."
Mercy, oh, save u's !"
('an't do it, gentlemen, you really must
swing with Ihe rest!"
Listen," said thle Abbot, we have hid
away Miurillo's Paralytic-take it as a rea-
sou), and let us go."
I thought this was a fair enough bargain,
let off the two dignitaries, and up went the
rest-thus giving (he two monks for the
Murillo. And yet people will say that I

has been proved by the borings for artesian
wellshrn the suburbs of Paris, namely, thiat
as we go towards the centre of the earth.
the temperature increases at the rate of
about one degree for every fifty feet. That
the whole interior portion of the earth, or ait
east a great part of it, is an igneous portion
of" melted rock, agitated by violent winds,
though I dare not affirm it, is still rendered
highly probable by the phenomena of volca-
noes. The facts connected with their erup-
tions have been ascertained and placed be-
yond dispute. Htow, then, are they to be
accounted for? The theory prevalent some
years since, that they are caused by tire
combustion of imrnense coal b~eds, is per-
fectly puerile, and is entirely abandoned.-
All the coal in the world would never afford

fuel enough for a single capital exhibition
of Vesuvius. We must look. higher than
this; I have little doubt that the whole
rests on the action of electric and galvanic
principles, which are constantly'in the earth.
fiWe know that when certain metals are
brought together, powerful electric action is
evolved, and a light is p)roduee], superior
even in effulgence tOn the plevdor of the
gun. Now if a small arrangement produces
such results, what may we not expect from
the combinations of these immense beds of
metal to be found in the earth? Here we
have the key to all the grand phenomena of
volcanic action. An illustration on a small
scale may be seen in the thermolectric bat-
iery made of zinc, bismuth, and antimony,
packed in a-box and varnished. In this,
heat is evolved below, while the top is cold ;
and here we have the very case of the vol-
cano, in the interior a fiery ocean is heaving
" its surges, while its peak is capped with
everlasting snows,

T HE proprietor of the Athenaum Bowling
Saloon" has used every endeavor to make
the establishment, an agreeable place of resort,
and is thankful that an ever discriminating pub-
lic prove by liberal patronage their appreciation
of his desire to- please. He- will always keep a
choice assortment of Liquors, and refreshing
beverages, of a sort to tickle the palates of Old
Bacchus' most fastidious sons; and Oysters,
cool and delicious, fresh from their native banks.
For a pleasant commingling of exercise and
amuvsement-utile cum dulee-there"-is nothing
within the circle of gymnastics to compare with
a gime of ten-pins; but those preferring less
active amusements, can always take a-hand.
Come one-come all."
