TUEiSDAY, January 24, 1938.
Mr. Cambreleng, on leave, reported a bill
making a partial appropriate '4bor the sup.
pression of Indian hostilitiefglprie year 1837.
T'ie bill having been read twice, Mr. C.
sent to thie Clerk's table, to be read, a letter
from the Secretaay of War, anid another tihe
acting Quartermaster Geierhd. setting forth
the absolute necessity lfr an imrnediate ap-
The bill having been commritted-; --..
Mr. Cambreleng moved a suspension oftlet
rules to enable him to submit a motion that ,
the House go into Comrnittee of tile Whole
on that, and tIhe bill for lhe protection of the
Northern frontier. de
Mr. Wise inquired if the,motion was a
bateable one. -- ,'
The Chair replied that it was not.
Mr. Wise said if it had, hlie should have of-
ferred some objections to going into commit.
tee on this bill, tfor he sapv no reason for taking
up a partial bill where there was a general
bill already before tie House.
Mr. Camnereleng might be permitted, after
the remark t' the Gentleman from Virginia,
to repeat what he had before said, that, when
the other bill came up, hlie anticipated a gener-
al debate, but thIe necessity of thle present bill
w s shown from the fact that the War Depart-
ment had noting to pay but drafts, and they
were returning protested.
Mr. Wise. If the appropriation is now
made, there will be nothing to debate about.
Mr. Bell had examined, as well as hlie could,
thec ground upon which this partial appropria-
tion was to be made; and hlie believed that
there was a necessity for some amount ; how
much, it would be for the House to ascertain.
Mr. Cambreleng's motion was agreed to,
and the House accordingly went into Commi-
mittec of the whole on the state of thie Un-
ion (Mr. Conner in the Chair) and- proceeded
to the consideration of the above bill.
As soon as it had been read by the Clerk-
Mr. Wise rose to address the committee in
opposition to tmhe measure in the furrm in which
it was presented. This, said hlie, is just such
a bill as I expected. It is just in this way
that all the immense sums of thie public mon-
ey which have already been expended in this
war, have been extracted, like teeth from this
House. They wait to the last moment, whenm
debt ihas aceuinmulated till payment cannot any
longer be deferred, and then, at tIhe pinch of
necessity, we are told we must pay, or the
C-'edit of tlie country will stiffer. In this way,
there hl4vc ecn dragged from us the nine or
ten millions of dollars whichi have already
been lavished upo:r this disgraceful, wicked,
fatal contest. We % bave just been told here,
by the delegate from Florida, that time regular
troops of our Army arc without their pay, and
that the disbanded'militia are in thie same sit-
uation. I ask how much will 'ultimately be
required for this war ui-en this is the stato of
matters uafler all the sums welmehav ie-.
ted? Will any company. any pitar'o0
moneyed combination of men, be.,..ITirg ti>
take d0 millions, anid agree to pay tlie.fTp-
scs which have already been incurrtid \ ll
any gentleman mhere undertake to tell us how
much this war has cost us already ? I here
take the responsibility, and I will set it out, to
declare in my place, that I will not, with my
own knowledge, vote one dollar more for i4,
till we have some details, seine intelligent ac-
count, as to thie expenditure of what hais al-
ready been given. Has thie Committee of
Ways and Means informed us how this money
has been spent ? Will they tell this House how
many steamboats arc at this minoment lying idle
in Florida, at am expense for their hire of ma-
ny thousands of dollars a day ? Viii they let
i.s know hiow many harpies are no feasting on
the spois of Government in that Tecrritory?
Is there, in fact, ai war there at all ? I havn
information from the best sources, sources
which are now within reach, gentlemen re-
centlyv from time spot, anid now in this city, andit
who will come forward and testify, if' you will
grant the investigation I have demanded-which
assure me that there is, at this moment, no war
in Florida, but that which is kept uip by the
Government officers, and by the people who
are battenimng and fattening on the money of
the nation 'doted by this House to prosecute
that war. Those Cherokee mediators, whomt
you employed, whom you have withdrawn and
and whom you have treated with such base
perfidy by seizing anid binding thie Seminole
Chiefs whom they have succeeded in bring-
i-ag in to treat wilh you. while thie Ahite flag
of truce was yet flyiing over their heads.-
These Cherokees tell you That tire Sctiinolcs
desire peace. Sir, it is acts like these, acts of
base and double perfidy, first to the Cberokee
mediators and then the Semniole Chiefs, men
who ought to have been taught morality by
your examples as civilized men, professing to
be Christians,-it is these things which keep
up that disgraceful war which is washing and
desolating your southern frontier. Will not
this House iuquire how the millions we have
given have been made way with? For one,
1, an American citizen, feel sufficiently dis-
graced already by this base, dishonest, and dis-
astrous contest, and I will tot budge one rtep
farther umtil matters arc explained. Iett die
troops wait: if all tie money is wasted which
should have paid them, let them wait. I can-
not help it. I will not give another dollar till
we have the money accounted for.
Mr. Downing, the D1)egate from Florida,
addressed the House ii r"pl-. [Owing to "i.

House, and on the opposite side of the Speak.-

heard.] He said hlie felt himself called upon,
by the remarks of the gentleman from Virginia,
who had declared that he would vote no further
supply till some account was given, to vindi-
cate the course of the Administration in the
conduct of this St'minole war. The gentleman
had stigmatized the advisers and conductors of
it from the beginning, and, had characterized tho...
war itself as base and wicked in its origin,
disastrous in its progress, and almost ridicu.
lods in its conclusion. New, as to the corn
mcncement of this contest, it had beau

and the Seminole tribe of Indian.
which had been entered into

WVe publish, to-day, thie discussion in the
House of Representatives, between Messrs
-.Wise and Downing, on the Seminole war ap-
propriat-:on bill. We would not speak dispar-
agingly of the efforts of our new delegate, but
we muct confees, after hearing it so highly ex-
tolled, we have, on perusing it, been quite disap-
pointed. As we were never among those who
rated Mr. Downing a moan of superior talents, we
wvwre not a little surprised to read in several pa-
ers,.noticeesin which his speech i spoken of
in terms of extravagant praise ; and we were
atiost .e-, ., to hlelhae that we had underrated
his prowess ;.and that the late Mr. Downing of
the Legislative Council, was a Pitt or a Fox in
We are far ftom approving of the position as-
sumed by Mr. Wie ; on the contrary, we think
it uncalled for, at this time, and highly censura-
'ble, but we cannot sanction, by any means, all
.the sentiments advanced by Col. D. Hie makes,
it is true, many just remarks, and evinces his
us-al tact, in advoeatiag his cause, but seems
to forget that he is pleading the cause of a pat-
riotic and suffering people, '-.tal of an ordina-
ry client. In a Court of Justice, there may be
ss-me excuse for perverting facts to obtain a fa-
vorite end ; but when a man assumes the garb
of a statesman, and stands forth the champi-
on of the people-when he asmsumes to represent
their ., nitment--tl.,"r interests-their rights;
lhe dig.,itly of his post, the character of his con-
slituents, require that be should shun a resort
tto any pitiful- ta;, to carry out his favorite
measures. .
Though we did not support Mr. D. for his
-preseunt office, that ciecumnstance shall not pre-
.vent us from deciding mpnart'ally upon.,his pub-
lic acts. We believe e mniay render Florida
same service, if he will, but not by riniS-r.'s r-ien-
tation-nof at the expense of truth. The cause
of our t;:Ilow-c tizens is too holy, toojuat, to re-
quire a resort lo such weapons to g'.ve it suc-
cess. If Mr. D. was ignorant cfthe Ihfact, that
not only Gov. E;iton, but. others, advise,! the

The ftic. ;r,1 remarks on the position of the
Il'ateiiiiiin," we copy. from the Apalachico-

the purpose of showing that there i at least

in the glorious cause in which we have enlist-

POLITICS AND SO ON.---OUr friends of
the Tallahassee Watchman have underta-
ken to bring about a new era in the polit-
ical -affairs of Florida. We wish them
success, for the times are sadly out of joint,
and need ,iv In an article which
we copy from their paper this week, they
have set forth the pr',,, -i I which will
gove i lIl.>ti inutheir future course, and on
.which'they call .' ii'Unit, J action in build-
ing up the destines of the new State. But
little can be found 'in this article, about
which any party can reasonably cavdl, and
if the Watchiian can carry ihem out, he
wi!l deserve '.\ .-i of his country."
The pitiful ebullitions of those whose impor-
tance is -o 1., derived from their association
with others, and whose patriotism is confined
to the narrow limits ofdol!zrs and cents, we re-
gard as the idle wind : but the well-wishes and
co-opreration of tlihe wise and and good, we hail
with gratitude. We are not personally acquain-
tVd w;tii the Editor of the Apalachicola Ga-
zette, but we know him to be a man of superior
talents, and have heard him spoken of as a gen-
tleman of superior worth. As hlie has long been
f'o -r.,l1 ;.-ro.'.- as : an editor, we should re-
joice to fee! that we were alike, enlisted in a
common cause; that we were not leading-him,
but ,,i'.'i ,t,', him, hand and hart, "in build-
ing up the dstinles of the new State." We
litter no idl- words when we declare, that we
are determined at every hazard, to lift our voice,
feeble as it is, in behalfof the PEOPLE. VWhenev-
er, and wiierever necessary, we will sound the
alarm, and whether our voice is regarded or not,
we shall at least have the benefits of a convic-
tion that we have done our duty. In this
cause we, are happy to believe, that we shall
have the co-operation of t-lc wise and good.

Education of Children.--We publish on
thiefirst pzg'. ,,lfto-day's paper, a very inter-
esting article onr the early treatment and disci-
pli. i.;g of children. As the subject is one of
great interest and Iimportance to parents, we
hope they a ;ii gc- it tI atntentive perusal.-
We have long bueenlcnvi.eced of the great
impropriety ofsubjectitg children of a tender
age, to that severe application to study, which
more appropriately belongs to those of more
advanced years, and whose physical powers
are more adequate to sustain the mind in its
arduous toils. A child who possesses a mo-
ther of ordinary industry and intelligence, need
not enter the door of a school-house, until he
has attained the age of eight or ten years ; and
even then, hia literary tasks should, at first, be
iiht. A mpile time should bc aforded him for
play, and exercise ; otherwise, though he may
acquire the appellation of" book-worm," tit-
-'., p'du;.'." <&c.. yet he. wi be at last.
Lomirntr .eiy, bjt a worra, eitlbr in mental
or. physical strength. We are for children
learning all that they can, without disgusting
hem with books, and enfeebling at the very
outlet, the energies of mind and body. Let a
a child erier a school-room as he would a
flower-garden, with glsdiess and delight-let
imrn rove much at his will, gathering in his
progress such, flowers as may please his young
famcy-ilet the beauties of science be gradually
uoifoidd to his view-let strengthening reason
urge its strong arguments in favor of know.
Sedge-a-rouse his ambition ; gradually lift from
Ji;re's stage the curtain, and let him see that
upom his well-directed and continued efforts,
depends his successful and useful career in
tiiis world, and his happiness ia the other,-and
if a chilH' poseses the proper elements, lie will
rise to usefulness and honor, and his pathway
to fipr:i success i ill be one of pleasure.
Children are too generally viewed as more
machines, which must be propelPed per force,
entirely, not drawn by motives. From our
own ohservatien, we are lcd to believe that
every child of ordih.try capacity who has ar-
rived at the age of six years, can comprehend
all the essential reasons, iu favor of earnest ef-
fort in the pursuit of knowledge. Young as he
is, his mind may, if properly and patiently di-
rected, be made to discover tie excellence of
wisdom; the beauties and pleasures that are to
be seen and gathered in her paths: the glory
thatbegirts the r,ames of her votaries-the un-
wasting- fulness of her garners. When a
bright aad useful career is held up to his young
mind, and he is made acquainted with the
means upon which his final success hangs,
he must indeed be unworthy of liberal culture,
who will not seize upon them with eagerness.
We have at present neither time nor space to
enlarge upon tltis sul.j, ,[*

We learn that the cotton remaining at the
Rail Road Depot, was seotfire to, on Wednesday
and Tnursday nights last, and that about 20
bales were nearly consumed.. It is supposed
to be the work of an incendiary. We hope tho
villain or villains will be, brought to justice.

sists of the 9th and 16th Sections of that township,
which lie contiguous for their whole length, and

running through it, in a healthful section of tIhe coun-

The rail-read from Tallahassee to St. Marks, now
near its completion, will afford a cheap and ready

Butler's Vegetable Specific.
For the cure of Coughs, Colds, Ihfluenzas.
and all diseases of the Brieast and Lungs.
T HlS Speafie is obtained by extraction from
herbs, roots, plants, &c. wheion in perfoctin. Is
consequence of a happy combination of the most val-
uable herbs, &c. it becomes a balsamic of superior val.
ue. It heals the injured parts, opens the pores and
composes tihe disturbed nerves after the manner of an
anodyne ; consequently the obstruction of the chest
and the lungs which constitute this disease, particu-
larly need its use. It promotes expectoration which
is constantly called for, and whilst it cleanses and
heals, it also' gives strength to the tender lungs.
It removes the hectic fever, improves digestion,
gives strength to the nerves, repairs thie appetite, and'
improves the spirits. This specific is always given
with safety. It is mild, pleasant to the taste, and
may be safely given to sucking infants and to wo-
men in whatever condition, the most delicate cr-
cumstances not excepted.
For children, it is of inestimable value. It affords
relief in bowel coiimplaints,tocthiiitf, whooping cough!r,
cholic, &c. and is found particularly useful in hypo-
condiacal, nervous, and hysterical diseases.

Among the many certificates in the possession of
the proprietor, the following, obtained recently, is
worthy of notice, viz:
BALTIMORE, December 7, 183.1.
I, W. Price, of the city of Baltimore, do hereby
certify and declare, that I have been for a long li:nor
afftlicted with a severe cold, accompanied with an al.
most incessant cough and pain in my breast and
lungs-also, spilting of blood and purulent matter
from the lungs, with night sweats and fevers, and
was so much emaciated with loss of rest, &e. as to
diminish my weight about one third. I applied to
several emiinent physicians and underwent a courob
of medicine, but could obtain no relief, and found
myself fast verging on to a confirmed consumption.
Having at length heard of the many astonishing
cures affected by Butler's Vegetable Indian Speci.
fie, for coughs, colds, consumption, &c. I was in-
duced to make trial of it, and found almost immedij
ate relief and my rest restored. I continued its use
-improving fast, my appetite better and all the
symptoms of the diseise diminishing daily. Not-
withstanding, I diligently persevered in following
the directions for lioa aflicheted with consumption,
and in a few weeks was completely cured, and hare
remained so for nimany months, and amun now in better
bettor health and flesh than I have been for many
years, to groat astonishment of my friends. I there.
Ibre with confidence recommend the use of the
Vegetable Indian Specific to my fel.
low-citizens as a safe, pleasant, and effectual reim.
edy for coughs, colds, consumption, and all dis.
eases of the breast and lungs.

The Astotlhnatic and Consumnptive.
T HE most prevalent and fatal of all diseases in.
cident to civilized society, the. Consumption,
miy generally be traced to the least alarming of
disorders, a slight bat neglected cold. By estima.
tion it appears that one hundred and filfty thousand
persons die annually of the consumption. Most of
these dreadful results may be attributed to common
cold, and a negligent treatment ef time harrassing
cough that generally ensues, which is usually fol-
lowed by difficult breathing, pain in time side, and at
last ulcerated lungs. Violent and repeated Asthmat-
ic attacks, also bring Consumptive symptoms. One
or two dollars expended in the perhase of
Dr. Reli's Asthmnatic Pills, and a lit.
tie attention to theii timely administration, will usu.
ally insure a mitigation of these disorders, and gen-
erally effect a cure. Thie Pills are also an easy and
effectual remedy for the symptoms preceding and ac-
companying the 'Asthma and Consumption. For
colds, coughs, difficulty ofbreathing, tightness and
stricture across the chest, wheezing, pain in thIe side, .
spitting of blood, &ce. Few cases caii occur of any
of this class of disorders in which tihe purchaser ot
Dr. Relfe's Pillswill not find a rich return for their
trifling expenditure.
