drec.sing the h1air, jut introduced into the
market by Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co.
It combines all the properties which have
long been desired in an article of the kind,
and is the result of a careful research, and
reiterated experiment. It contains a very
large proportion of the famous Cocoa-nut
Oil, the use of which is so universal anong
the inhabitants of the Eastern A rchipelago
The luxuriance and abundance of hair.
which adorn the natives of those remote
regions, are attested by all travellers, and
are mainly to be attributed to the use of
this Oil. The aimof Messrs. Burnett & Co.
has been to free it from the peculiar odor
which it has in this condition, and to unite
with it some approved tonics which stimu-
late the hair to a healthy and vigorous
growth. It will be found on trial to be the
blandest, and cleanest, and most disirable
preparation ever offered to the public.-Bos-

A New Perfume for the JIatndkerchicf.
This exquisite bouquet is so highly con-

A NEW PERFUME.
Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co., have
produced a new and most delightful per-
fume for the handkerchief, for which they
have chosen the very appropriate name of
"Florimel." Its odor is that of an ex-
quisite bouquet of choice and delicate
flowers, without too much of that peculiar
sweetness so common in French Extracts,
which- satiates And sickens the sonse It
is very neatly put up ii bottles, whiah sell
at fifty cuts each, and may be had of the
principal Druggists and Perfumers.-

FOR THE COMPLEXION.
Of all the compounds we have yet seen
prepared as a cosinetic for the skin, there
is none that has a higher reputation, or
one that is so popular with the ladies as the
far-fiamed "Kalliston." It is scientifically
pre[ ared, and is a perfume as well as toilet
wash. It imparts to the skin a peculiar
softness of texture, so desirable during the
prevalence of harsh drying winds or a hot
sun. It will, with a few applications, re-
move tan, freckles, sunburn, and all cuta-
neous eruptions. It is extensively used for
these purposes, and ladies who apply it can
exercise in the open air as freely as they
please, and experience no inconvenience
from raggh or irritated skin. This article
can be had of all druggists and perfumers
of any reputation. Joseph Burnett & Co.
are the Proprietors.-Boston Trianscript.
THE TE.ETH.
1ow few people consider the import-
ance of preserving the teeth! and how ma-
ny would give thousands of dollars could
they regain them after the loss has be-
come irreparable.
Among the many preparations for pre-
serving the health and beauty of the Teeth
an4 G &ms, we believe Burnett's Oriental
Tooth l ash deserves the highest rank.
The position which Mr. Burnett occu-
pies, as a chemist, his untiring energy and
rare skill, are sufficient gqariaut.ge of the
excellence of each and all the preparations
bearing hi. name..
The Oriental Tooth Wash has, we know,
received the sanction and patronage of the
leading Dentista and Physicians in this
country. It is not only a powerful deter-
gent and cleanser of the teeth, but, by its
vegetable astringent properties, acts direct-
ly upon the caries, thereby most effectually.
arresting decay, and forming a protective
and almost impervious coating in the cavi-
ty, even where the nerve is exposed. Its
action is alS beneficial to the gums, keep-
ing them firmly attached to the teeth, and
preventing the bleeding and softness which
is now-a.days so common. The Oriental
Tooth Wlas. is. moreover ono. of the pleas-
antest remedies in the world; searching,
pungent, and. aromatic, i imparts, to the
breath a peculiarly clean atd delightful
fragrance. We advise our readers to try
it.-Dental News.
SMOKING-
Gentlemen who areaddictedto the habit
of smoking will find Burnett's Oriental
Tooth Wash an excellent detergent. It
also imparts to the breath a fragrance,
peculiarly aromatic and pleasant.
ALL of the above Articles direct from
those Celebrated Chemists Messrs. Burnett
& Co., of Boston, are for sale in St. Aug-
ustine-only at

ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA,
SATURDAY, DEC. 17, 1859.-

Death's Do*.r ; 2
The great and the good! how are they
passing awgA! A few months ago, fell
Prescott with all his armor on. The sound
of the knell announcing that Mason and
Hamilton and Choate were no more of
earth, is hardly silent, before the whole
country is thrilled with the intelligence
that Washington Irving is gone to join
the innumerable caravan in the pale realm
of shade.
Mr. Irving is identified forever with the
graceful, the versatile, the tender, in our
general literature, and with candor, truth
and power, in our historic literature. His
literary industry and research have been
wonderful and successful to a remarkable
degree. He began his career of letters at
the age of twenty, by contributions to a
newspaper. He closed that career with
the life of Washington, which he comple-
ted only a short time before his death.
There isscarcely a man in this country
whose death would produce a profounder
impression.
We leave his eulogy to abler hands.

Synod of Georgia.
Our sister city, Jacksonville, was enliv-
ened last week and the latter part of the
week before, by the presence of this body
of ministers and office-bearers in the Pres-
byterian Church. The bounds of this
body include the States of Georgia and
Floridai tuiltchis is the first time that' .he
annual meeting has been held within the
limits of our State.
The occasion brought together a good
number of ministers and ruling elders,
thirty two of the former and about twenty
of the latter. We notice as in attendance
the Rev. Drs., Schenck of the Board of
Publication at Philadelphia, Ilowe of the
Columbia Theological Seminary and Myers,
late of Plainfield N. J., more remotely and
now again, we are happy to state, of our
City. The latter gentleman reconnected
himself with the Presbytcry of Florida,
one of the constituents of the Synod, and
is now fully identified with the interests of
the State of his adoption. Our Citizens
are too fully and favorably acquainted with
him to need an introduction from us, and
he is too well aware of the respect with
which he ia regarded here to want any as-
surance that we can give him of a true
Augustinian welcome.
Business of some importance was dis-
posed of. The most interesting item we
notice is the election of the Rev. -Jos. C.
Stiles and W. M. Cunningham as Evange-
list or Itinerants within the territory under
the jurisdiction of Synod.
Besides the transaction of business, ma-
ny preaching services were held by Synod
in which a deep, interest was manifested by
the citizens of Jacksonville.
The next meeting is to be held at Col-
umbus Ga., on the Wednesday next before
the 3rd Sabbath in November 1860.
We take special pleasure in noticing the
meeting of such belies within our State,
knowing that our chief want is that its re-
sources and attractions should come under
the notice of men of observation and intelli-
gence, and such preeminently were there
composing this body.

Spain and Morocco.
The Spanish army, under orders for Af-
rica, was estimated at 40,000, with eighty
pieces of rifled cannon.
Marshal O'Donnel had returned to Ca-
diz, after having effected a survey of the
coast of Africa. Military operations are to
commence immediately.
A landing on, the. Atlantic. coast of Mo-
rocco was expected early in December.

ES A lady of New York in writing for
a photograph of Old Brown, says, "I want
the im~.age cf this modern Moses imprinted
on my very soul."
B The news from Europe contains lit-
tle of interest. The affairs, of Italy are yet
in a complicated state.


S, Excitement.
The sentiments'of the Charleston Mer-
cury, which we publish below, engage our
assent and endorsement. We have no
question that the miserable abetters of ag-
itation issuing from the ranks of Abolition-
ism, risk themselves in the South, where
public opinions is so justly exasperated to-
ward them. But all Northern people are
not emissaries of fanaticism. We have
reason to be suspicions, but shall we there-
fore be n'ust? We have need to be vigi-
lant, buti ;8,i la nec is compatible with dis-
crimination and magnaminity. Many of
the Northern men and women within our
borders, both as regards business and ed-
ucational matters, are very important to us.
They are out active, vigorous, staunch,
working minds; let us not be guiltyoaf
wronging the innocent, because we our-
selves have been the sufferers of wrong.
It is with sincere regret we learn from
the papers that there is great excitement
relative to two school teachers from the
North in Williamsburgh. The greater
portion of the citizens of that District seem
determined to drive them outof the District
on suspicion, whilst their employers and
others, believing them to be innocent of
any designs hostile to our institutions, seem
determined to retain and defend them.
This is a sad state of things. In our
indignation at the aggressions of the North,
we are in danger of dealing with men as if
they were guilty, without proof. Whilst
we, as a people, are wronged by our Northern
associates in the Union, we may perpetrate
equal wrong on others, whose only fault is
that they come amongst us under the
guarantees of a common government and
common union with them, which we allow
to endure. Many of our citizens in our
midst, who came originally from the North,
are as sternly Southern as any of our native
people. We are still in the tnionu and it
is ina our opinion, both unjuti and highly
injudicious to make war on men because
Northerners, and without plain ground of
proceeding against them. It must result,
as in this case, in dividing our people and
frittering away the strength of Southern
sentiment in insignificant and mischievous
efforts, productive of no extensive or perma-
nent good results. The people of the South
should ascertain the necessities of their
position and the source of their dangers.
They should place themselves beyond the
reach of Abolition emissaries. This is the
only remedy adequate to the evil they seek
to reach. Spasmodic action, not based upon
ground that can stand, must produce reaction
and division. We should attack the source
of danger, and not spend our energies in
weak or blind efforts upon the solitary__and
doubtful instances of its evil results.
Moreover, measures necessary to security
are one thing; illegal violence on mere
suspicion, is a different and a dangerous
thing,. that will not stand the test of reason
and justice."

The Northern Press.
The Tribune canonises Brown as a martyr
and denies that he was actuated by the im-
pulses of a felon. It considers the whole
affair as a war between Freedom and Slave-
ry, and adds:
We have not seen how Slavery could
spare the life of John Brown without virt-
ually confessing the iniquity of its own ex-
istence." It also says: "Of course, we re-
gard Brown's aid as utterly mistaken and,
in its direct consequences, pernicious."
The Courier & Enquirer says:
"At a quarter-past eleven yesterday
morning, the spirit of John Brown passed
into another world. His memory will be
cherished by some whose hatred, of Slavery
is such as to justify his recent attempt to
incite a servile insurrection. By all others
it will be conceded that he has met a fate
which he justly incurred. * Many
may admire the firmness of John Brown
and his utter fearlessness of death, but all
right-minded persons will say that he de-
served to be hung."

CONSISTENT, VERY.-Some of the
freesoil papers north, are denouncing what
they are pleased to, term, the ridiculous
military display at the execution of Brown,
and in the aame issue publishing the
declaration of Brown that an attempt would
have been made at his rescue had it not
been for these very precautions..

STRANGER.
[FROs AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.]
PIEDMONT, Va., Nov. 30, 1859.
MY DEAR SiR :-Lest you should sup-
pose me unmindful of my promise, to send
you a few hasty notes of travel, and finding
myself, as the name of the place would im-
ply, just at the foot of the Virginia moun-
tain ranges, pardon me if I, as I pass, give
you a hasty sketch of the topography of
this region, so different from that which on
the seaboard, you have the pleasure of see-
ing every day.
No doubt, to-morrow or "any day next
week," you will be impelled by the invit-
ing and invigorating sea air, to sally forth
from your comfortable office, and throwing
off the Editor, for a short walk, consider
yourself in your character of citizen, en-
titled to your morning stroll and put on
an air of determination as though you
meant to have it. To the right, to the left,
or wherever you go, your vision is scarcely
anywhere obstructed. This is not, how-
ever, the privilege enjoyed by Piedmontese.
Issuing forth for his morning stroll, he can-
not say, "No pent up Utica," &c., for here
lbe t+h cenre; v4--t. "i.t f _L4 -
which intirsdet at this point, and no where
that his eye can turn but his vision, is in-
tercepted by mountains which rise until
they shut out the rays, though happily not
the light of the sun. At his feet rushes,
and gushes and plashes, and prances and
dances, (that's Southey's) the rapid stream
of the upper Potomac, hurrying on its
course to meet the sea. To the Westward
the valley rises rapidly, seeming to hasten
to overtake the mountain in its more rapid
and declivitous rising. It is along this val-
ley tracing the same course as the water
courses, that the stupendous system of rail-
roads connect Baltimore and Washington,
with the far West, choose their routes.-
At a very considerable rate of speed the
powerful engines on these roads surmount
a grade of one hundred and fifty feet to the
mile, and this for many miles, but having
once gained the summit, the engines seem
to enjoy their rest, as they run through the
Glades not, like the Everglades, below, or
even with the general level of the land sur-
face, but at an altitude of half a mile above
it.
This place, being on the Virginia and
Maryland line, and very accessible on
both the Northern and Western sides;
through the valleys which meet at right
angles here, is occupied by the Vir-
ginia troops, for the protection of the bor-
ders. On every side you hear the "note of
preparation," and the men seem really fine
fellows and quite able to meet a more tan-
gible foe than any that is likely in the
present condition of affairs, to make an on-
set upon them. The sentiment through-
out the State with reference to the late foray
at Harpers Ferry, seems, to be that the law
has been violated, and that its majesty
should be vindicated.
I have met muchof a feeling of something
like commiseration for the perpetrators of
that outrage; (commiseration that they
should have permitted themselves to become
the victims of an infatuation that has blind-
ed them to the true state of things as they
exist,) but very little of anything like sym-
pathy.
Yours truly.

Execution of. Old Brown.
CHARLESTOWN, December 2, p. m.-The
prisoner was brought out of jail at eleven.
o'clock. Before leaving he bid adieu to
his fellow-prisoners, and was very affection-
ate to all except Cook. He charged Cook
with having deceived an'd4misled him in
relation to the support he was to receive
from the slaves. He said he was led by
him to believe that they were rife for in-
surrection, but he .found ttiat his represen-
tations were false. :Cook, deied t0ce hrJ
made but little reply to -Brows. he"'1
prisoner then told the Sheriff he was ready,
when his arms were pinioned, and he i
walked to the ddor apparently calm and
cheerful. As he came out he was taken
under guard of the military. Six compan-
ies of infantry and one troop of horse.
At the door of the jail an open wagon,
with a coffin was waiting for him. No
minister of the gospel accompanied Brown,
he desiring no religious ceremonies either
in jail or on the scaffold.
He looked with interest on the fine mili-
tary display, but made no remark. The
wagon moved off as soon as he had taken
his seat, flanked with two files of riflemen
in close order.
On reaching the field the military had
already full possession, and pickets were
stationed at various points. The citizens
were kept back at the point of the bayonet
from taking any position except that as-
signed them-nearly a quarter of a mile
from the scaffold.
The prisoner walked up the steps firmly,
and was the first man on the gallows. Jailor
Avis and Sheriff Campbell stood by his side,
and after shaking hands and bidding an
affectionate adieu, thanked them for their-
kindness. He then put the cap over hisr-
face and the rope around his neck. Mr.
Avis then asked him to step forward on the
trap. He replied, "You must.lead me for
ST-eamantse.15" BE" Ar inquwi Pc,,
was tired. Brown replied, "No: but don't
keep me waiting longer than necessary."
At fifteen minutes past eleven the trap
fell. A slight grasping of the hands and
twitching of the muscles was visible, and
then all was quiet.
The body was then cut down and placed
in the coffin and conveyed under military
escort to the depot, and there put in a car to
be conveyed to Harper's Ferry.
The whole arrangements were carried out
with precision and military strictness.
The general conviction is everywhere
entertained that the rumors of intended
rescue were altogether an egregious hoax.

FLORIDA TAKES THE LEAD.-The Rev.
James Peeler, of this place, has returned,
having sold the Patent Right of his Plow
and Manure Distributor, for twelve States,
for the sum of two hundred and fifty one
thousand dollars, in notes and cash, has
given away about two hundred thousand
dollars for Church purposes, thirty-six
thousand of which are for taking scholar-
ships in Colleges, under the care of the M.
E Church South, hoping ween he will
cease to work and live, young men will be
educated for the ministry to bless the Church
and his country. We have seen the most
flattering notices of his Plow from the
highest source. Surely his Plew will be
the only one used, say the most intelligent
and enterprising, wherever it has been
properly introduced. In fact, he says the
Plow should be entered in a County or
State Fair for twenty-two, premiums.-Tal-

The Aspect of the Times.
Our exchanges this week come freighted
with details concerning the hanging of
John Brown. His leave-taking of his fel-
low criminals and the officers of the prison,
his dress, his journey to the scaffold, his
ascending the platform, the shocking ab-
'nee of all perturbation as he submitted to
e hible ceremonials that pertain to th
horrible 'fi,.. of executioner, the spasmodic
action that attended his awful plunge into
the unknown, are all duly expanded, and
that strange curiosity which relishes such
details is gratified. John Brown has paid
to Virginia the terrible debt he contracted,
when he'madly set treasonable foot upon
her soil, and laid the bold hand of the in-
vader upon her institutions; and he has
gone ingloriously up to the "last assizes"
to render an account and stand a trial un-
der "higher law," and upon more indict-
ments than Virginia found against him.-
An awful close to an atrocious career, and
the just desert of crime.
Virginia has magnified and made honor-
able her laws, which either hold crimes
against the State sternly in abeyance, or
visit the offender with the extreme penalty
for his misdeeds; and- she has sustained
with unflinching majesty and firmness her
sense of justice, and its righteous demands.
Yirginia has had abundant cause both on
her own account and in behalf of -the
i.uthern sisterhood of States for the very
aten'ity of indignation. She has been
in.-ulted, sneered at, ridiculed, bullied and
defed. In the midst of all, she has curbed
her private exasperation, held under tri-
umphant mastery her resentment for her
wrons, and balanced the scales with un-
trembling hands. The whole South will re-
egrd~_~fratermally than ever, for the
course she has taken in this deploraDle ex*-
igency, and the Patriot, and rightminded
in all sections of the country, will honor
her that she has honored law, and inflexi-
bly rewarded infamous guilt with its legi-
timate infamy of punishment. The break-
ers of a foiled fanaticism, and corrupt po-
litical intent, will dash, and roar, and howl,
and waste themselves, we earnestly hope.
God grant their angry violence may abate,
before they hollow out a Malstrom wherein
the noble ship of American Union, at
whose helm once stood a Washington, shall
be engulphed and shattered into fragments,
for nations to point the finger at, and hoar
old tyrannies and despotisms to banquet on.
What will be the end of these tempes-
tuous beginnings, a "Samuel must be
brought up" to foretell. The South is
roused throughout her whole territory; and
she is justified in providing for her own
safety and peace, at any hazard, and at any
price. We have held with a firm grasp,
fast to the constitution and the Union.-
Our patriotism has made us cling to the
republic-the one inviolable confederacy
of States. We have deplored the wild folly,
which has led the restless and the over-
bearing among our northern brethren, to
stir into such malarious commotion the
waters of civil strife. We have deplored
their unprovoked aggression, both open
and stealthy, upon our institutions-we
have bewailed the spirit of denunciation
which has prostituted the pulpit and the
forum.. God grant this abolition insanity
may have reached its maximum, and this
very abortion of a miscalled philanthropy,
may die a natixral death, or by the "mar-
tyrdom" of its late conspicuous apostle.-
God grant that men may be raised up in
this emergency whose statesmanship and
patriotism, calm and clear sighted, shall
pilot the American Republic through the
hurricane, that threatens her, and moor her
once more in the waters of peace and fra-
ternity.
But if the animosity has become irrecon-
cilable, if the interchanges between North
and South, are to be but an emulation of
rancor and hatred, if they are to be pitted
against each other in eternal antagonism,
the admission is wrung from us, that IT is
BETTER THE SHIP OF STATE SHOULD GO
ASUNDER. It is better she should be riven
spar from spar, and timber from timber,
rather than buffet an everlasting tempest,
or draggle herself in her own heart's blood.


Our opinions on the matters at issue be-
tween the slaveholding and non-slavehold-
ing States are firm and uniform. We stand
by the RIGHTS or TIHE SOUTH as guaran-


din IConstitution of the United
States, and we repudiate any one sided in-
terpretation of those rights. Sternly will
we resist their invasion, and never will we
see them overborne or trampled in the dust,
and holdour peace. But in all cases of
national or sectional excitement, there is
danger of hasty, imprudent, and. ill-advised
legislation, and action. Let us hope how-
ever that candor, and wisdom, and dignity,
may distinguish the deliberations of the
national assembly now in session-that
convincing logic, may take the place of
stormy declamation, and that the convul-
sions which threaten the existence of our
government, may be calmed into a spirit of
unity and brotherhood.

Revolutionists and Traitors
Rebuked.
The Rev. Dr. HAWKS, of Calvary
Church, New York, preached on Thanks-
giving morning an excellent and eloquent
address on American Patriotism. We
make the following extract.
"Are there none )bvho openly ndoinn
the Constitution of their country-none
who, by the exercise of corruption that
scarcely has shame enough to keep itself
out of sight, pervert it from its plain de-
clarations and legitimate interpretations?
Are there none who have been willing and
ready to convert executive power into judi-
cial, and legislative into executive? And
how speak some men now of that Union of
which our fathers (taught by Revolutionary
experience) thought so much? They had
purchased it for their children with their
blood, and that blood had flowed froni
Northern and Southern hearts alike; it
made one common pool upon the battle
field; they knew that upon union alone
depended a strong, proud, national exis-
tence. Do all their sons adhere to this
opinion of their fathers, or do they trample
on their memories and despise their wisdom?
Let the facts answer. What means the
angry and insulting language of portions of
the press both North and South toward
each other? Why do flippant sneers, and
taunting insinuations, and insidious affec-
tations of candor, and false assertions, and
vulgar vituperation from so much of the
editorial staple of certain prints? Is it
thought to show skill of fence in intellectu-
al gladiatorship?
Whether it be quite as clever writing as
its authors suppose may perhaps admit of
doubt; but grant thatitis, the sober Ameri-
can who has no personal Vanity of author-
ship involved may well ask whether it is
either patriotic or wise thus to furnish fuel
to the flame of mutual exasperation already
burning, alas! too brightly ; or to sacrifice
the interests and happiness of our country
-totie grt fcatiou-ofome mC t ihor.'-0 w6-1 to
obtain celebrity as the writer of insulting
sneers and trenchant irony. Our country
is surely worth more to us than the
gratification of the personal vanity of any
man, and, while it is cheerfully conceded
that the press should be free, and may often
furnish information and instruction to the
public mind, yet it would be hard to show
any lawful power it possesses to assume over
it dictation and control. The mode of
saying may be often more offensive than
that which is said; and there is a mode
which does not conduce to union, because
its tendency is to destroy fraternal feeling.
If any American citizen wishes to be
without a country that can command the
respect of the civilized world, let him contri-
bute his aid to dissolve the Union of these
United States. In the fulfilment of his
unpatriotic purpose he will find his punish-
ment, for he will have ruined himself.
He will be crushed and bruised under the
edifice he has assisted to undermine. Our
country is exempted (at least for the
present) from the intestine convulsions of
revolution; how long it may be before op-
posing hosts may be marshalled on the field
of carnage depends, under God, on the
calmness, the courage the prudence, and
the patriotism of the wise, the thoughtful,
and the good men of all parties of the Union,
who love their country better than they do
any party, and who have the sense to ap-
preciate its value to the world and to them-
selves."
A&, HON. F. C. BARRETT member of
the Legislature for Duval County has favor-
ed -us with Governor Perry's message,
and sundry important financial Reports ac-
companying it. The passages of most in-
terest we have selected and they will ap-
pear next week.

B, We hope our readers will pardon
us for again recurring to an old subject-
one we have repeatedly urged, and one
which is still favorite with us-the reviving
the names of our streets, and indicating
those names by suitable sign boards. It
would certainly add to the respectability of
the appearance of our City, and be very
convenient and agreeable. We commend
it to the favorable notice of the "city
fathers," and solicit their action upon it,
in the name of citizens and strangers.

B. The U. S. Revenue Cutter Har-
riett Lane made her appearance off our bar
on Tuesday last, and sent her boat in to con-
sult with the Collector. From one of the


Party who returned with Lt. Duncan to
make her a visit we learn that they were
most kindly received by Capt. Faunce,
who treated them with his usual hospitable
manner, i. e. with the right kind of spirit.
We also learn that there is a prospect of her
coming in to make a visit next week.

Congress.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5th.-Both Houses
convened to-day at 12 o'clock. In the
Senate Mr. Mason, of Virginia, offered a
resolution providing for the appointment of
a select committee to enquire into the na-
ture and consequences to the general gov-
ernment of the recent outbreak in the U.
S. Armory at Harper's Ferry.
Mr. Trumbull gave notice that he would
offer an amendment providing also for an
inquisition to ascertain the nature of the
recent capture of the Frankfort Arsenal?
The usual resolution was passed notify-
ing the House that the Senate was in readi-
ness to proceed to business. The Senate
then adjourned.
HOUSE.-Nearly all the members were
present at the call. The House proceeded
to vote for Speaker. On the first ballot
the vote stood:
For Sherman, (Republican,) 66.
For Grow, 43.
For Bocock, (Democrat,) 86.
For Bokclar, (American,) 14.,
Twelve others received each from five votes.
Mr. Grow withdrew from the contest.
Mr. Clark, of Missouri, offered the fol-
lowing: Whereas certain members of the
House, now in nomination for Speaker,
have endorsed and recommended Helper's
book, entitled "Impending Crisie," there-
fore, be it resolved, that the doctrines and
sentiments therein contained are insurrec-
tionary and hostile to the domestic peace
and tranquility of the country, and no
member who endorsed and recommended it
is fit to be Speaker of this House.
Some Republican member rose to a point
of order, but was not successful in stopping
Mr. Clark, who poured hot shot into their
ranks with raking effect.
Several Republicans disclaimed for their
party insurrectionary or dissolution senti-
ments. A. lively time ensued, the debate
being conducted in tolerably good humor.
After which the House adjourned.
Dec. 6.-Senate.- Senator Mason's
resolution, calling for an investigation of
the Harper's Ferry affair, was brought up
to-day, anda long discussion ensuedon it.
Senator Trumbull was in favor of an in-
vestigation. He wanted similar occurrences
investigated-one of which had occurred in
1855, at Liberty, Missouri.
Senator Mas6n Wanted official informa-
tion, on which the case could be brought
up for Congressional action. He called John
Brown a thief, vagabond, ruffian and rob-
ber.
Senator Hale made a humorous speech,
for which Senator Hunter rebuked him-
saying it was like the laugh of an inebriate
at the bed of death.
Senators Green, Pugh and Ivcrson favor-
ed the resolutions, but opposed Trumbull's
amendments.
Senators Wilson and Clark advocated
the amendment and resolution- Before
the question was called the Senate ad-
journed. /
HOUSE.-The discussion was resumed on
Clark's resolution declaring that no mem-
ber who had endorsed or recommended
Helper's book, "The Impending Crisis,"
was fit to preside over the House of Rep-
resentatives.
Mr. Leake, of Va., was in favor of making
the Republicans "face the musio."
Mr. Millson, of Va., said that those who
endorsed Helper's Book were not fit to live,
much less be elected Speaker of the House.
Mr. Keitt, of S. C., declared that the
present state of feeling was the legitimate
fruit of the seed sown by Seward.
Messrs. Sherman, of New York, and
Curtis, of Iowa, said, as Republicans, they
did not desire any interference with the
relations of master and slave.


Mr. Gilier, of N C., offered a resolu-
tion reiterating the declaration that it was
the duty of the Whig and Democratic par-
ties, as heretofore, to frown down all at-
tempts to agitate slavery in or out of Con-
gress.
There was an exciting time generally.
Other speakers followed, but there was no
vote for Speaker, and the House adjourned.


[COMMUNICATED.
NO. 3.
Review of Doctor Forbes' Let-
ter continued.
In this article it will be found that Doc-
tor Forbes loft the Catholic Church for
reasons quite different from -those alleged
by him.
To the most Rev. Archbishop etc.,
"It is now nearly ten years since * *
each day had its duty and responsibility,
and with these have come experience,
observation, and the knowledge of -many
things not so well understood-before, etc."
Doctor Forbes seems to hint that for
nearly ten years he has been discovering
gradually, and as it were, day by day, some-
thing of a very suspicious character which
he did not so well understand before. This
discovery was not the fruit of his reading,
he does not say that, no sooner he was a
Catholic Priest that he had a free'access to
all the secrets of the Catholic Church, and
that they put in his hands some awful book
fontauiing all the mysteries of eniquity; or
that he found it ih~sometark'corderN of a;
library, in an iron chest with three locks
and as many outside bolts. No this kind
of revelation had its own time, then men
believed readily any lie habitted in dark-
weeds, but, to-day they have become more
refined in their taste and more sympathising
with actual sufferings, entailed by religion
upon good people, hence, a light groan, a
half whispered complaint from the supposed
oppressed Catholics will surely find favor;
therefore, the Doctor, knowing well the
people whom he intends to please, tells
them that his daily duties and responsi-
bility; some sparks too of charity, we hope,
have enabled him to collect, for nearly ten
years, all the almost smothered groans, half-
born sighs, and even, the wind has brought
to his attentive ears, the lightest word of
disaffection; so that he has filled his mem-
ory with these little things; but they are
so small that it has required nearly ten
years to make a decent collection of them.
This is the meaning of the letter of the
Doctor; he gives no tangible fact, he cites
no circumstance under which he has been
compelled to sacrifice his liberty, or violate
his conscience; neither can he say that he
was informed that he would be required to
give up his natural rights. We must con-
fess that this way of impudently accusing
others and screening oneself from a disa-
greeable perquisition, is very ingenious;
tfid book of Maria Monk was tefuted by
protestants, afterhaving visited the places
where it was supposed that the pretended
crimes had been committed, but where to
find a protestant gentleman who, for the
sake of knowing the truth or the falsity of
Doctor Forbes' letter, will publicly renounce
protestantism, become a priest, sit in the
confessional for hours in succession, visit the
sick, day and night, etc., for ten years and
after all his troubles, if he does not come to
the mark, the Doctor may tell him that,
either, he had not the confidence of the
people, or he did not pay attention enough
to the little words that they dropped now
and then We are of opinion that all the
protestants who may feel some interest in
the cause of the Doctor and are anxious for
his reputation, would tell him that it would
have been much better for all, if after hav-
ing spouted all these little grains, he had
counted his mustard seed in presence of
his superior, instead of running away from
his authority as a guilty slave from his
master. We must then give up this mode of
confronting our accuser since we find no
person disposed to tread after him in this
annoyous track. But, the Doctor is a man,
and like other men, he feels probably some
interest in the wollfare of his brethren; now,
if he saw himself deceived in his expecta-
tion, concerning the moral and the dogma
ofthc Catholic Church, if his misgiving
took the form of doubts, and after a time,
of a sad reality, why, for seven or eight
years has he induced so many persons to
join that Church? Some were his perso-
nal friends, others were his penitents who
came from St. Luke's Church, others were
mere strangers directed to him; why did he
take, indiscriminately, all these too confi-
dent people, and hurl them in that sup-
posed horrible vortex where men are so
miserable during this life and, have so
mournful chance for the other? Yet, the
Doctor rejoiced after having increased the
number of Catholics; and in order to
strengthen the new comers in their faith
he was telling them, in 1851, that if they
should reject the Church they would, by
the same fact; reject Christ; and in 1855,
that there is no need to fear of being de-
ceived, the Church being infallible, could
neither deceive nor be deceived; at last
toward the end of 1857, he sot out for
Rome, in order to visit, said he, with a


Catholic spirit, the sites and persons he had
formerly visited with protestant disposi-
tions.
There is duplicity some where, either in
the letter, or in the conduct of the Doctor;


moreover, the late pastor of St. Anne's
Church has confidence enough in our simn-
plicity to tell us that his doubts, and finely,
the knowledge of many things not so well
understood before, are derived from his
being continually with his parishioners;
and according to his own words,- he was
obliged to give the iftain part of his time to
simple and innocent souls, but more partic-
ularly, to poor old women; a work, said he,
that an Irish boy would do as well as him-
self. Now, is it not a little strange that a
gentleman like the Doctor should have been
made to understand by this people what
years of study and the help of so many
Icarned men could not make him under-
stand? What business had these persons,
whose knowledge was so limited that an
Irish boy might have directed them, to re-
veal all these sounding things to the Doctor;
even that, in the earliest ages of the
Church, the foundation of the Papal power
was very slender! Really, we did, not sus-
pect before this unpleasant discovery, that
poor old women were so dangerous? But
we will see that the fatal blow comes,
more probably from some nice young wo-
man so, at least, it is rumoured in New
York. Whosoever has read our first and
second articles, must know that Doctor
Forbes was a distinguished man as a prot-
estant minister, the leader, in, this coun-
try, of the movement of the Episcopal
Church toward the Catholic Doctrines; yet
very cautious not to profess Catholic faith
till he was fully convinced of its soundness
and purity; Secondly, that as a priest he
explained and defended that faith with so
much zeal and learning that he received
from his opponents, the title of Catholic
apologist; and in this articlwewe see, accor-
ding to his own statement, that some poor
old women have revealed to him things
that he did not so well understand before,
and that in consequence of this new light,
he has leftthe Catholic Church! Is there
any man of good sense who can believe the
Doctors reason? The true reason why the
Doctor has left the Church is from his
own statement; not published in the News
papers, but well known by his friends. The
Doctor, apparently strong, complained
frequently of being very weak and incapa-
ble of bearing the exertion required by the
constant occupations brought on him by
his duty as pastor of St. Ann's church;
therefore he desired to leave etc., when it
was question of establishing an American
college at Rome, he was informed that, in
all probability, he would be appointed
President of this new Institution; that two
Archbishops of the United States, had ex-
pressed their desire upon this subject. It
appeared to be so positive that the Doctor
and his friends relied on this appointment;
when he returned from Rome, he was asked
if any thing, concerning this appointment
had been done or said he answered; not yet,
but evidently relying upon it. He was
then quite disappointed when hlie heard
that his name was not even on the list of
the candidates for the Ptoeideuoy-of-tb
American College we do not say that this
was tmhe only disappointment that his as-
pirations met with, for something beyond
the pastorship of St. Anne's Church; but
this was the main and the last. His ambi-
tion, wounded to the quick, sacrificed his
faith which failed to flatter his pride.'
Hence, that faith was falsely accused by the
Doctor, of not being so sound as he thought
at first, and the moral, not so pure as he an-
ticipated; but he know that hlie was writing
a false accusation, and therefore, he blind-
ly framed this letter which is so much in
contradiction with his words and conduct.
He wrote without conviction and without
sense, in order to testify to the truth of that
sublime sentence of Christ-" Whosoever
exalts himself shall be humbled"-He has
been humbled enough in telling the world
that, after twenty years, at least, of study
and nearly ten of teaching, he has learned
from his flock that he was deceived and was
leading others astray. It would have been
more manly to say clearly- the 1ope gives
me no invitation to go to Rome, the Arch-
bishops do not send me there and my little
church of St. Anne can no more satisfy
my ambition therefore I leave you all!-I
give up spiritual for temporal concerns; I
plighted my faith to God, I took an oath
before the altar, in presence of a numerous
congregation, that I would never have
any thing to do with any woman, but after
ten years of perseverance in an honorable
celibacy, being disappointed in my hopes, I
will look out for a wife.
In fact, it is reported that he is about to
marry his wife's sister! once he is de-
spised by all, and his joining tho Episcopal
church is looked upon by ,the people of
that denomination, rather as a shame than
an honour for them. So, he has sunk so
low that every honorable gentleman oi
lady shuns his company.

No Speaker elected up to the close ol

S6 We have received a specimen ot
Florida Sugar made by our townsman
Mr. W. J. Rayes. It is clear and of a
very light color. What is the reason the
sugar crop in this region should not sup-
ply at least the home demand? We think
it might be so. This specimen of Mr. Ray-
es, manufacture compares very favorably
with any of the brown sugar procured
from the foreign market.
Orn BtOWN HUNG OVER AGAIN.-As a


sort of set-off to the general abolition howl
that went up on the execution of Old Brown,
we observe that lie was hung in efligy, tIhe
same day, at Concord, New Hampshire.
The college boys at Princeton had a grand
torch-light procession over the event, and
closed by burning Seward acd Boecher in

To the Phbjsicians of the Southfern States.
Wolfe's Genuine Cognac Brandy,
Wolfe's Genuine Port Wine,
Wolfe's Genuine Madeira wine,
Wolfe's Genuine Sherry Wine.
I am now supplying the trade with pure Cog-
nac Brandy, in bottles, both for medical and
private use. The immense success that has
crowned my efforts to place a pure Gin within
the reach of all, under the name of Aromatic
Schiedam Schnapps, and to drive out of the
market the pernicious compound sold as Gin
throughout the country, led many leading drug-
gists, apothecaries and medical men, for some
years past, to solicit me to pursue the same
course in regard to the article of Brandy. I
should have complied with these requests from
all quarters long ago, but was deterred from it
by the fact, that owing to the exorbitant prices
of Brandy in France, consequent upon the short-
ness of the grape crop for some years, there
was no chance of my being able to import the
choicest Brandy. bottle. it and sell it at mode-
rate price. Fortunately for me, the grape crop
for the last and previous year (and the prospect
for this) was abundant, and prices of Brandy
have fallen to the standard of ten years ago.-
The duty on Brandy is also seventy per cent
lower, and I have now made arrangements
with four Brandy exporters in France, of the
highest repute, and am regularly receiving con-
signments of the best Cognac Brandy, which I
am bottling and selling as Wolfe's Genuine Co-
gnac Brandy. I guarantee with my seal, labels
and certificates, the Brandy so bottled by me,
as the pure, unadulterated article, and it will
be found, when used as a medicine, a beverage,
or a cordial, healthful and invigorating. It has
been a matter of universal complaint, that a
bottle of pure, unmixed French Brandy, was
very difficult to obtain, and the purchaser, nine
times in ten, was deceived with a vile manufac-
tured imitation. Of all descriptions of ardent
spirits, Brandy, from its high price, has been
the one article that mixers and sellers have
turned their attention to, and millions of gal-
lons of the so-called French Brandy have been
scattered annually through the land, and have
been the primary cause of murders, suicides,
cruelties and crimes, and have sent thousands
to an early grave, self-destroyers, from delirum
tremens, mania-a-potu and horrors, names un-
known, until unprincipled men began to make
maddening compounds and sell it as the pure
French Brandy.
The virtues of pure French Brandy need not
be told by me. They are known throughout
the world as a medicine or mild stimulant. It
is, as the French nation poetically call it "Eau
de vie," the water of life. But this applies
to it only when pure and unadulterated. Man-
ufactured with the fearful ingredients that make
a good imitation, it becomes a death drink to
innocent tens of thousands of our race. To
remedy a fearful evil, I have commenced im-
porting Brandy, bottling it, and selling it as
"Wolfe's Genuine Cognac Brandy." I am
daily receiving orders from the druggists and
apothecaries in all parts of the Union, to sell it
for medical purposes.

We have always considered the real Fari-

proper luxury for our toilet table, but the
other day we were tempted by a stray bot-
tle of Burnett's Kalliston, prepared by
Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co. We yield
it the palm; the effect is salutary and the
perfume is exquisite; after the application
we fell as bland and balmy as a May morn-

to make it less irresistible if they expect to
supply the demand.-Boston Gazette.

A NEW PLEASURE.
We have always considered the real Fari-
na Cologne Water as the most modest and
proper luxury for our toilet table, but the
other day we were tempted by a stray bot-
tle of Burnett's Kalliston, prepared by
Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co. We yield
it the palm; the effect is salutary and the
perfume is exquisite; after the application
we fell as bland and bulmny as a May morn-
ing. We beg to suggest to the proprietors
to make it less irresistible if they expect to
supply tlh demand.-Boston Gazette.
