melancholy diseases that arise from wet feet, numbering thirty-

having undergone an ordeal of the severest scrutiny and criti-

500 ber's plantation, on Saturday morning, the 16th of

his wife, at the farm of Nicholas Brewer, jun. Esq. near Anna-
polis, and limiting the time of his absence till Monday evening,
the 18th, since which time he has not been heard of. Michael
is about 35 years old, black; 6 feet 1 or inches high, and slen-
derly built; he generally speaks slowly, and in a mild tone,
and has a slight distortion of the mouth, showing his teeth much
in talking. If he has any marks, they are not recollected. His
clothing was of osnaburg, and he had on a pair of fisherman's
boots. These he may, however, change. Michael was pur-
chased by me, in February last, of Richard M. Chase, Esq. of
Annapolis, in and around which city he has many acquaintan-
ces, and also some relatives in the neighborhood of the former
estate of the Darnells, on West river, Anne Arundel county, and
a brother, purchased, I think, by a Mr. Edelen, of Calvert
county, at the time of my getting him. In the vicinity of some
of these lie may likely remain until an opportunity offers of
making his escape, which he no doubt intends, having gone off
.without provocation. He has, I am told, followed the water,
and may probably endeavor to get employment on board some
vessel. Captains of vessels are warned against receiving him.
I will give $250 for him if taken any where in the State of
Maryland or District of Columbia, and the above reward of $500
for his apprehension out of the State. In either case he must be
delivered to me, or secured in jail so that I gethim again.

County of Washington.--In Equity.
George Law, vs. Charles Brngiere, James L. Duval et al.
Fs HE bill of complaint in this case alleges an agreement
between the complainant and the said Charles Brugiere,
one of the defendants, by which it was stipulated that the com-
plainant, in consideration of his services in and about the pro-
secution of a certain claim before the Board of Commissioners
appointed under the treaty with France, providing for remune-
ration to tite citizens of the United States for spoliations by
French subjects, &c. and in consideration of his having inform-
ed the said Brugiere of the existence of said claim, and of his
furnishing the evidence to.establish the validity of the same,
should have and retain out of th? sum which should be awarded
in liquidation of the said claim, a certain proportion thereof, to
wit, one-third of the whole amount. The bill further shows
that the complainant did prosecute the said claim, and that an
award in liquidation thereof was made, for $1,879, to the said
James L. Duval, another of the defendants, in trust for the said
Charles Brugiere : by reason whereof the said complainant
could not receive orecureany portion of the same, under the
power of attorney made to him by the said Brugiere.
The complainant asserts in his bill that he ought to be per-
mitted to receive from the Treasury Department a certificate
for one-third of the amount awarded, to wit, 8626 331; and the
bill seeks to compel the said Duval to execute his duty as trus-
tee of the said award,'and to assign and transfer to the com-
plainant his one-third part thereof; and, further, to obtain a
full discovery and disclosure, upon the oath of the said parties,
of all connexion between them in relation to the premises, &c.
,&c. ; and to prevent the said parties, or either of them, from
obtaining possession of lie said fund, without securing to the
complainant what is justly due to him, the bill prays an injunc-
And forasmuch as the said Charles Brugiere and:ihe said
James L. Duval do not reside within the jurisdiction of this
Court, but beyond and without the District of Columbia, it is
therefore ordered, this ninth day of March, in the year of our
Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty-seven, that the

DEBATE IN THE SENATE.
SPEECH OF MR. CALHOUN, (or SOOTH CAROLINA,)
On the Expunging Eesolution.
FRIDAY, JAN. -13, 1837.
Mr. PRESTON, Mr. RIvES, Mr. MOORE, and Mr. NILES,
having respectively delivered their opinions at length, and
it being now late in the afternoon, Mr. SOUTHARn expres-
sed an intention tospeak, and thereupon moved an adjourn-
ment, that he might have an opportunity of addressing the
Senate on the following day, but the motion was lost-
Ayes 20, noes 21.
Mr. SOUOTARD then declined speaking.
Mr. MooREs then renewed the motion for an adjourn-
ment, but it was again rejected-Ayes 20, noes 22. When
Mr. CALHOUN addressed the Senate nearly as follows:
The gentleman from Virginia (Mr. RivEs) says that the
argument in favor of this expunging resolution has not
been answered. Sir-, there are some questions so plain that
they cannot be argued. Nothing can make them more
plain; and this is one. No one, not blinded by party zeal,
can possibly be insensible that the measure proposed is a
violation of- the Constitution. The Constitution requires
the Senate to keep a journal; this resolution goes to ex-
punge the journal. If you may expunge a part, you may
expunge the whole'; and if it is expunged, how is it kept "
The Constitution says the journal shall be kept; this reso-
lution says it shall be destroyed. It does the very thing
which the Constitution declares shall not be done. That
is the argument, the whole argument. There is none oth-
er. Talk of precedence? and precedence drawn from a
foreign country o They don't apply. No, sir. This is to
be done, not in consequence of argument, but in spite of
argument. I understand the case. I know perfectly well
the gentlemen have no liberty to vote otherwise. They
are coerced by an exterior power. They try, indeed, to
comfort their conscience by saying that it is the will of the
People, and the voice of the People. It is no such thing.
We all know how these legislative returns have been ob-
tained. It is by dictation fiom- the White House. The
President himself, with that vast-mass of patronage which
he wields, and the thousand expectations he is able to hold
up, has obtained these votes of the State Legislatures, and
this forsooth is said to be the voice of the People. The
voice of the People! Sir, can we forget the scene which
was exhibited in this chamber when that expunging reso-
lution was first introduced here Have we forgotten the
universal giving way of conscience, so that the Senator
from Missouri was left alone 1 I see before me Senators-
who could not swallow that resolution ; and has its nature
changed since then Is it any more constitutional now
than it was then 1 Not at all." But Executive power has
interposed. Talk to me of the voice of the People No,
sir. It is the combination of patronage and power to co-
erce'this body into a gross and palpable violation of the
Constitution. Some individuals, I perceive,; think to es-
cape through the particular form in which this act is to be
perpetrated. They tell us that the resolution on your re-
cords is not to be expunged, but 'is only to be endorsed
Expunged." Really, sir, I do "not know how to argue
against such contemptible sophistry. The occasion is too
solemn for ani argument of thi sort. You are going to
violate the Constitution, and you get rid of the infamy by
a falsehood. You yourselves say that the resolution is ex-
punged by your order. Yet you say it is not expunged.
You put-your act in express words. You record it, and
then turn round and deny it.
But what is the motive 1 What is the pretext for this
enormity I Why, gentlemen tell us the Senate has two
distinct consciences--a legislative conscience, and a judi-
cial consciences. As a legislative body, we have decided
that the President has violated the Constitution. But gen-
tlemen tell us that this is an impeachable offence, and, as
we may be called to try it in our judicial capacity, we have
no right to express the opinion. I need not show how in-
consistent such a position is, with the eternal, imprescripti-
ble right of freedom of speech, and how utterly inconsistent
it is with precedence drawn from the history of our British
ancestors, where the same liberty of speech has for centu-
ries been enjoyed. There is a shorter and more direct ar-
gument in reply. Gentlemen who take that position can--
not, according to their own showing, vote for this resolu-
tion ; for, if it is unconstitutional for us to record a resolu-
tion ofcondemnation, because we may afterwards be called
to try the case in a judicial capacity, then it is equally un-
. constitutional for us to record a resolution of acquittal. If
it is unconstitutional for the Senate to declare before a trial
that the President has violated the Constitution, it is equal-
ly unconstitutional to declare before a trial that he has not
violated the Constitution.. Thu.sama principle is involved
in both. Yet, in the very face of this principle, gentlemean-
are here going to condemn their own act.
But why do I waste my breath ? I know it is all utterly
vain. The day is gone; night approaches, and night is
suitable to the dark deed we meditate There is a sort of
destiny in this thing. The act must be performed ; and it
is an act which will tell on the political history of this
country forever. Other preceding violations of theConsti-
tution (and they have been many and great) filled my bo-
som with indignation, but this fills it only with grief. Oth-
ers were done in the heat of party. Power was, as it were,
compelled to support itself by seizing upon new instruments
of influence and patronage; and there were ambitious and
able men to direct the process. Such was the removal of the
deposits, which the President seized upon by a new and
unprecedented act of arbitrary power; an act which gave
him ample means of rewarding friends and punishing ene-
mies. Something may, perhaps, be pardoned to him in this
matter, on the old apology of tyrants-the plea of necessity.
But here there can be no such apology. Here no necessi-
ty can so much as be pretended. This act originates in
pure, unmixed, personal idolatry. It is the melancholy
evidence of a broken spirit ready to bow at the feet of pow-
er. The former act was such an one as might have been
perpetrated in the days of Pompey or Ctesar; but an act
like this could never have been consummated by a Roman
Senate until the times of Caligula and Nere.
A FARM FOR SALE-Situated in Prince George's
county, Maryland, containing 270 or 280 acres. It lies in
a very pleasant and healthy neighborhood, and is distant ten
miles from Washington city. The improvements are a two-
story frame dwelling house, a two-story barn, the lower of stone;
the stable joins the barn, to as to form a right angle, and the
corn-house is connected with the stable, making it a very de-
sirable place for cattle. It lies on the main road leading from
Bladensburg to Good Luck post office, and can easily be recog-
nised by two rows of locust trees leading from the road to the
house. Clover, plaster, and lime have been used with great
success. It certainly yields, in a great degree, to the growth of
clover, timothy, and red-top. There are two meadows, one at
the head of a spring of very pure water, adjoining the barn,
distant sixty yards from the dwelling; :the other in one of the
fields, headed by four first-rate springs. The place is divided
into six fields, and the barn being so centered as to receive the
stock from either direction. This farm would suit a town gentle-
man, for its local situation partakes of some variety. It has a
large supply of wood land, and a very handsome young apple
orchard of select fruit. It possesses a large and desirable out-
leIt'for cattle and hogs, and the farm is well adapted to grazing,
which would render it acceptable to those who would prefer
farming altogether. Possession can be had at any time, and
payments to suit the purchaser. Mo- ~ -se.-Gsonan-W.-.Pn.-
SLIPS and WIcrx 'BayE R, both of Waslinigton city, can de-
Sscribe this farm to the satisfaction of inquiry.

DEBATE IN THE
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
REMARKS OF MR. ROBERTSON, (or VIRGINIA,)
On Mr. BELL'S proposition to distribute the sur-
plus in the Treasury on the 1st.January, 1838.
DELIVERED FEBRUARY 24, 1837.
Mr. ROBERTSON said he was, in general, much op-
posed to the addition of new clauses to an appropriation
bill after it had been matured by the proper committee,
particularly such as introduced matters unconnected with
the main objects of the bill. This mode of legislation of-
ten left no alternative but to adopt a questionable or im-
proper principle, or reject appropriations essential to the
public service. But, in the present instance, he should
overcome his repugnance, and vote for the amendment pro-
posed by the gentleman from Tennessee, (Mr. BELL.)
That amendment, it was true, involved a very important
principle; but it had undergone a full discussion.: indeed,
it had occupied the attention of the country for years past,
and had received the deliberate consideration and sanction
of Congress at the last session. He presumed, therefore,
that every gentleman was prepared to vote upon it.
Having formerly expressed my views (said Mr. R.) on
the propriety of distributing the surplus revenue, I should
not now have risen to say a word on the subject, but for
the remarks ofthe gentleman from Michigan, (Mr. CRARY.)
That gentleman opposes a distribution, if I understand him
correctly, upon the ground that his State has contributed
more than her just proportion towards the revenue, and
that any distribution, therefore, by the ratio of representa-
tion, or of actual population, would do her great injustice.
How is this, sir Upon what principle is it assumed that
Michigan has paid so much more than her due proportion
into the public Treasury, as to be unwilling to receive her
proportional part of the surplus ? Are we to understand
that the gentleman considers the price paid by the People'
of Michigan for-the public lands they have purchased as'
.money levied in the way of a tix 1tSeni-sr'ry-to
justice of the pretension. The People of the new States
'have, by no means, been exclusively the purchasers of the
public-domain lying within their respective limits. It has
been purchased, and is still owned, to a considerable ex-
tent, by the citizens of the old. States, New York, Virgi-
nia, and the rest. But suppose this were not so. Is the
ground to be taken that the price of the public lands is to
be regarded as a forced contribution to the revenue Have
not the purchasers obtained a full equivalent for what they
have paid, as much as if they had purchased from private
proprietors ? Nay, sir, as is suggested near me, have they
not, on an average, realized double and treble the amount
of their investments 1 Will they surrender their purchases?
Or will they set up a title both to the land and the money?
No, sir, I am well persuaded no gentleman here will advo-
cate so monstrous an injustice. The old States freely gave
up, for the sake of harmony, a princely territory, upon the
condition simply of participating, according to a stipulated
ratio, in the benefits to arise from it. They have shown
in this that they were capable of a generous sacrifice for
the public good. .But they can never acquiesce in an open
and flagrant.violation of their rights. Nor can their rep-
resentatives, should such an attempt be made, sit here with
their arms folded, ari4 see those rights wrested from them
by force or fraud. It would really seem as if this Govern-
ment had forgotten the nature of their tenure, and meant
to dispute the title under which alone they acquired and
hold possession of that portion at least of the public do-
main surrounded by the States. We constantly hear of
schemes to reduce the price below the.fair market value;
to yield them up to those who have lawlessly entered upon
them ; to make even an unconditional surrender of them
to the States within which they lie. There is not one of
these schemes that does not violate the compact under
which they are held by the United States. Let me, sir, at
least remind you of the terms of the grant -made by the
State I have the honor to represent.
After dedicating certain portions for specific objects,
among others for compensating her revolutionary soldiers,
whose valor had defended them, it explicitly declares, that
the whole residue shall constitute a'common fund, for the
benefit of all the States, Virginia inclusive, in proportion
to their contributions to the public expenditure. Upon
these terms alone was the surrender made and accepted;
and so long as the proceeds have been required to meet
the public exigencies, all the States have enjoyed the be-
nefits contemplated by the deeds of cession. But for some
years past the increased demand for lands, arising from the
rapid settlement of the new States, and aninordinate spiritof
speculation, irr connexion with the operation of the tariff,
have poured into the-Treasury a redureltnt -r-veRue,-which
the most extra-v-agant-appropriasloflyttVe osuiai- cedn to
consume. It was in this state of things that Congress,-
during the last session, felt itself imperiously called on to
make some disposition of the immense and accumulating
surplus in the Treasury among the several States.' The
ratio adopted may not have done exact justice to each;
Ihe new States particularly, owing to the rapid increase of
their population since.the last census, have not received
the proportion to which the ratio of federal numbers, as
prescribed by the Constitution, would perhaps entitle
them. But still it was a beneficent measure, checking, as
it did, the wasteful extravagance of this Government, and
restoring to the People what justly belonged to them; and
so long as from the same sources-the proceeds of sales of
the public property, or the extortions of an unjust tariff-a
revenue shall be collected, more than adequate to the rea-
sonable waists of the Government, so long will I continue
to vote for restoring the surplus to its lawful owners. ,I
heed not the outcry raised about the corrupting effects of
such-a measure. The Government of the United States
is a mere trustee, and thee States, so far at least as re-
spects the proceeds of the lands they ceded, are no more
liable to be corrupted from receiving what is due to them
from the United States, than if it were dud from France
or England. They solicit no favor; they demand only
what belongs to them. They insist only upon the perform- .
ance of the trust this Government has assumed, and which
it would he coerced to perform, could the question be
brought before any impartial judicial tribunal. It would
not be endured for a moment that this trustee should with-
hold property from its rightful owners, upon the plea that
it would corrupt them to receive it. There is vastly more
danger in leaving the funds here, than in distributing them
among the States. There it may, and I trust will be ap-
plied to the most beneficial purposes instead of being ex-
pended in a partial system of internal improvement, or cor-
ruptly wasted, used through the banks or otherwisein politi-
cal jobs. To my own State, especially, which has paid so
much towards the public revenue, and except in this mode
of distribution has received so little from it, I should hope
for important benefits. Drained as she is of her popula-
tion and wealth by a constant emiigration to the West, and
suffering under the infliction of a protecting tariff, the pub-
lic lands present resources which, judiciously managed,
may, for many years, reinvigorate her industry, enable her
to carry on the local improvements in which she is now
extensively embarked, and provide yet more liberally for
the education of her youth. So far from looking with ap-
prehension at the two or three millions poured into her
treasury under the act of the last session, I should rejoice
-iffroniitl iales uofthe public domairi; of wlioh- h e ceded
so large a portion, she could for a century to come annu-
ally receive an equal amount. Whatever may be thought
of distributing the general revenue, the old States which
surrendered their lands, none can doubt, have a perfect
right to participate in all the advantages resulting from
them. They were ceded by them on the express condi-
tion of such participation. The new States, at least, the
recipients of their bounty, who have been admitted by
them to partake ot this common stock without contributing
to-it, will be among the last, I should hope, who will ever
deny their claim. It is one of sheer justice. Did I not
think it so, I would not urge it; for it is my pride to re-
present a State which would disdain to ask or to accept
more than her due.
REMARKS OF MR. ROBERTSON,
ON THE SAME PROPOSITION.
Saturday, February 25, 1837.
MR. ROBERTSON .said hlie would not be so unrea-
sonable as to detain the House at that late hour. He rose
merely to make his acknowledgments to the gentlemann
from New York, (Mr. VANnERPOE.,) who had so kindly
undertaken to represent the State of Virginia. The gen-
tleman had only followed the example of the State from
whence he came, in taking the old commonwealth under
his especial protection 4 and as one of her representatives,
(said Mr. R.) I feel myself bound, with all due humility,
to acknowledge the favor. Those whom she has confided
in to represent her, it seems, have mistaken her interest,
and their own duty. We have been outwitted, the gen-
tlenman tells us: gulled by a yankee trick into the support

wonderful acuteness, which enablesliim so clearly tog
through the 'designs of these very sagacious politician
and it is kind in him to apprize us of our danger. I should
like to have heard him assign the reasons why New Yor
some years past, so much in favor of distributing the s~
plus, is now so decidedly opposed to it. The true reas'o
might perhaps be found to be that, having always a ve
large share of the public funds, she gains more by keeping"
what she has than by coming into a fair division. fi
without attempting to account for the motives Iic, m.

reasons that induce meto vote for a distribuim.n. .-'ir i,
with no view, as .he would insinuate, of k, epinr. u i[,

endured, that the gentleman from New York, who belong

to this tariff-should taunt Southern gentlemen of thenra

ing it up ? If he and his party are sincere in their profe.
sions, why have they, who wield the whole power oflegi8.
nation, permitted the South so long to be plundered by this
unjust system of taxation? Why suffer it to.oppress at: Ijr
a day, when they have the power at any moment to repeal,
it Why has the scheme of reduction proposed during
the presentsession, been permitted, until this late day, to
slumber upon the table .
Sir, it is because we have no confidence in their profess.
sions that we are compelled to take the only means left us
for redress, by restoring to th, People of the South what
this democratic majority continues to exact from them. It
is this consideration, the conviction that the surplus reve-.
nue, whether derived from the sales of the public property
or from the operation of an oppressive and unconstitution-.
al tariff, belongs to the People, and would be worse than
wasted by being left to the disposal of this Government,j
that induced me to support the proposition last year fbrj
distributing it.- Upon the same principles, until the ruling
party shall reduce the tariff, or take some effectual rtE[th,.
for limiting the revenues to the just wants of the Govern- I
ment, I will vote for a distribution; I call it a distribution-
because in truth no one expects a dollar will ever be:called
--for-by this Government. Only consider, sir, what w,.,ul]
have been outr present condition-had the act of .he last,
session not been passed. We found in the Treasury, onj
the first day of January last, an unexpenil balance ofl
about fourteen millions remaining of the sums" propria-
"ted for the service of the last ydkr; about six million snmore,
it is thought, remained unexpended in the safe-keephig of
the disbursing officers. We distributed among the States
about thirty-seven millions, making, together, about fifty-
seven millions ; add to this the estimated amount of re-
ceipts into the Treasury during the current year, and you
would llave had an aggregate sum of ninety or one hun-
dred millions of dollars, perhaps even more, to be disposed
ofat'the present session. What, sir, should we have done
with it We appropriated last year about twenty millions
more than could be expended. Should we have been call-
ed upon still to increase our extravagant and enormous ap-
propriations to accumulate still larger balances Yes, sir,
and then we should have applied all that could not be wast-
ed in useless fortifications, splendid custom-houses, high]
salaries, and corrupt jobs of every sort to carry on an un-
just system of internal improvements in the Northern andt
Western States, from which the Southern People would, a
usual, have derived little or no benefit. Sir, it is true, as
the gentleman from New York says, the People of the
South have been gulled ; they have been gulled with pro,
mises of retrenchment long enough while suffering froI
the oppressive exactions of this Government, and have at
length, I trust, awakened to a proper sense of their right
andof their interest.I
A word, sir, in conclusion, on the amendment of the
gentleman from New York (Mr. MANN) before me, pro-
posingla distribution among the States.0on the ratio of their
representation on this floor. I 'had intended to vote foi.
that endment, but further reflection has brought me to
a different determination. It does not adopt, any more
than the provisions of the deposit act which the gentle-
man from Tennessee (Mr. BELL) has preferred, -the ratio
prescribed by the ,'nni]-i',i:.n. That ratio, the ratio of
federal numbers, as it is called, it is impracticable at this
time to apply; and though some of the States, particularly
the smaller ones,get under the deposit act more than their
just proportion, and some consequently less, the standard
proposed by the gentleman from New York would, I am
inclined to think, rather increase than lessen the inequali-
ty. The new States at least would be seriously injured by
the change; and as exact justice cannot be administered to
all by either plan, I am willing to adopt. that which most
nearly approaches it, and which is likely to give the5s!

MONDAY, MARCH 20, 1837. *
NEW YORK, MARCH 17, 1837.
I have never witnessed a more gloomy day in
.the money market than this day. Wall street
Presented a silent, sombre appearance ; not so
niuch on account of what had occurred, as what
was apprehended. The failures in New Or-
leans operate most severely upon several com-
mercial- houses in this city; but upon none so
ruinously as upon the Messrs. JOSEPH, who
have been among the largest bill (foreign and
domestic) dealers in New York ; perhaps few
more extensively in the United States.
An intimate and personal knowledge of these
gentlemen enables me to say that they are high-
ly meritorious. They are but just entering
upon the meridian of life. They have acquired,
and I believe richly merit, the character of en-
terprising, courteous, prompt, and honorable
business men. By their talents and industry
they had arrived at a state of opulence that
seemed to place them beyond the caprice of
fortune, and yet they are now suddenly threat-
ened to be overwhelmed incomplete bankrupt-
cy. It is but a few days since their splendid
banking house tumbled-jinto -ruins; and before
they have recovered from the shock, a failure is
announced to them, by which it is said more than
one million of dollars is placed in jeopardy.
With great judgment andtgood sense, as soon
as they heard of their New Orleans disaster,
they determined to suspend their business until
the result should be accurately known.
This morning a number of the largest capi-
talists in the business community held a meeting
at the office of Messrs. JOSEPH, for the purpose
of consulting with them as to the proper mea-
sures they ought to adopt under the exigencies
of their case. It was stated at the meeting that
Mr. BIDDLE would advance the house one million
of dollars, on proper security, to enable them to
proceed. After some consultation, it was re-
solved, as I understand, that Messrs. JOSEPH
should suspend their payments until Monday
next, by which time it was hoped something more
satisfactory than any thing they now possessed
would be received from New Orleans, and that
the meeting should again convene on that day,
and decide whether the proffered aid should be
accepted, on the -guaranty of their friends, or
whether they should stop payment; and meet
the -result of their New Orleans transactions.
Many think they will be enabled to proceed. I
most sincerely hope they may, but greatly fear
they will not, as it does not depend so much
upon their own means, and their own contracts,
as upon those with whom they have had large
business operations in the South. If these gen-
tlemen are indeed ruined, the consequences no
man caiTrorotalLor foresee. They will be incal-
And now a word as -ohose-who have thua
brought desolation and ruin upon the country
through ignorance and corruption. .This is no
I longer a party question. The pressure of the
times is beginning to operate alike upon the
just and the unjust. Political empirics have
had the presumption to pretend that they under-
stood how to regulate the currency of the coun-
try, and have accordingly attempted -it. What
has been the consequence? Need I pursue the
The specie order of the 11th of July was an
outrageous usurpation of power on the part of the
Executive. It was a violation ofthe Constitution.
Congress so considered it. Will Mr. VAN Bu-
REN assume the responsibility of continuing that
order ? Will he thus make himself a party to the
usurpation ? As the friend of our common
country, I hope he may listen to the voice of
discontent which will reach his ear respecting
this order. As a politician, I hope the counsels
of Benton and Kendall may prevail, and the or-
der be continued.

evening editions of the same date as the above

FROM THE MARYLAND LEGISLATURE.
HOUSE OF DELEGATES,
ANNAPOLIS, MARCH 17, 1837.
Mr. ALEXANDER, of Annapolis city, this morn-
ing called up his far famed preamble and reso-
lution submitted by him some time since, con-
demning the president and directors of the Che-
sapeake and Ohio Cans) Company, and imput-
ing connivance to the Legislature of last year,
with the alleged frauds and misapplication of
the State's loan to said company, by the said
president and directors. His preamble and re-
solution having been read through,
Mr. BUCHANAN, of Alleghany county, offered
the following as a substitute :
WHEREAS, a majority of the joint committee appointed s
by the General Assembly of this State, at December ses-
sion, 1835, to inquire into the manner in which the
loan of two millions of dollars to the Chesapeake and Ohio
Canal Company has been expended, and thecauses which
led to the erroneous estimates furnished the Legislature
for the completion of the canal to Cumberland ; also, ge-
nerally into the manner in which the public moneys ap-
propriated for the construction of works of internal im-
provement, in this State, have been expended," did by their
report made to the Legislature in 1835, fully exonerate the
president and directors of that company from all censure,
as well with regard to the errors in said estimates, as with
reference to the alleged misapplication of a part of said
loan to the payment of the pre-existing debts of said com-
pany, and to the costs of soine necessary repairs of its work:
And whereas, the said 'General Assembly, notwithstand-
ing the dissenting report made by-the minority of that
committee on this subject, at May session, 1836, did, byr
their act, granting further aid by a subscription of three
millions of dolla-e to the capital stock of said company,
virtually approve ofnd and adopt the afore report of the
majority of that committee, and thus overrule or waive
whatsoever objections had been made to said expenditures:
And whereas, it is expressly provided by the second sec-
tion of chapter 241, passed at December session 1834-5,
that the certificates of stock or bonds of this State should
be issued as the same should be required for the purposes
of said company, and for such amount in the aggregate as
shall be necessary to complete said canal to Cumberland,
not exceeding two millions of dollars;" and by the 17th
section of said act, the said president and directors of said
company are required and authorized to apply said loan
to any use or purpose within- the proper "scope, iean-
ing, or authority of said act, or of the charter of its incor-
pornation," and it has not at any time been alleged by any
person, that any portion of said loan has been applied to"
any purpose not "within the proper scope, meaning or au-
thority of-said act of incorporation:" Therefore,
Be it resolved by the Legislature of Maryland, That it
is unwise, unnecessary, and wholly inexpedient to institute
any suit or action against the president and directors of
the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company.
In support of his preamble and resolution,
Mr. ALEXANDER made a most labored speech of
great length, in which he took occasioil to abuse
the president and directors of the canal com-
pany, and the editors of the National Intelli-
Colonel ELY argued at some length on the
Mr. BRENGLE moved to lay both the pream-
ble and resolution, and the substitute, on the table,
on the ground that the session of the Legislature
was too near a close to-investigate this sub-
ject. He utterly denied that the officers of the
canal company had made an improper use of
the two million loan, and vindicated their cha-
racter in all of their transactions.
Mr. McLANE, of Baltimore city, made one of
the most sensible, able, conclusive, and eloquent
speeches I have heard the present session in op-
position to Mr. Alexander's proposition, and
in support of Mr. Buchanan's substitute,
The motion of Mr. BRENGLE, to refer the
whole matter. -to th-f n c.to-Ia -. -.,aamlye
was carried by a vote of 37 to 24. Had the
isolated question been put to the House, whether
to adopt or reject Mr. Alexander's proposition,
I am sure it would, in the language of that ho-

FROM THE NEW YORK AMERICAN, MARCH 16.
The beautiful sun which shone down yester-
day, looked nowhere in its earth-wide course
upon a sublimer moral spectacle than that pre-
sented in the reception given by thousands and
tons of thousands of intelligent, uncorrupted and t
incorruptible freemen, to one of themselves-to
a man without power, patronage or place-but a
to a man who has steadily, consistently, with f
consummate ability, and a true American heart,
vindicated, once and again, the laws aud Consti-
tution of his country-and resisted, with un-
flinching spirit, the usurpations of Executive
Lpng before the steamboat from Amboy was
in sight, dense masses covered the wharves and
streets contiguous to the landing-and when,
finally, gaily decked with streamers, the boat ap- i
preached, the air was rent by cheers which were,
again and again, repeated, when Mr. WBnSTER, accompa-
nied by Mr. D. B. OGDENF, Mr. P. HONE, Mr. J. W. LEA-
VITT, Mr. HeGH MAXWELL, and others, proceeded to the
carriage furnished for him.
- When seated therein, the procession was marshalled by
some two hundred horsemen, who led the van ; then the
barouche in which was Mr. W., followed by other carriages
and a multitudinous assemblage of pedestrians.
The progress up Broadway was triumphal. Every door,
every window, every pile of building materials along the t
street, was alive with human beings, cheering, as the car-
riage passed them, the Senator, the Orator, the Patriot.
Mr.WEBSTER was uncovered, and during much ofthe time
stood up in the carriage. When finally he reached the Ame- ,
rican Hotel,the mass opposite became so dense as to render e
all passing to and fin in that wide thoroughfare impossible.
Mr. W. therefore went to the window, and addressed the
multitude for a few minutes, expressing his deep tr i.
tion and gratitude at the reception .,:.n 1.-- h-i,, and his
ardent wishes for the continued prosperity and happiness
of themselves and the noble city to which they belonged.
This short address was received with enthusiastic acclama-
tions, and the mighty mass melted quietly and. instantly
In the' evening, at half past 6, Mr WEaBSTER, accompa-
nied by the committee charged with his reception, proceed-
ed to Niblo's Saloon-which was full to overflowing, and
contained in its galleries and on the floor not less than
thirty-five hundred persons, to say nothing of the multitude
unable to get in.
The meeting was called to. order by Alderman CLARK,
who proposed for President DAVID B. OGDEN, which, upon
being put to vote, was unanimously adopted.
The following gentlemen were then elected Vice Presi-
dents, viz. ROBERT C. CORNELL, JONATHAN GOODHiuE, JO-
SEPH TUCKER, NATHANIEL WEED; JOSEPvH HOXIE, G. S.
After a brief address from Mr. OGDEN, Mr. IV. present -
eLhimselfto the meeting, and was received, as in the morn-
ing, with overwhelming cheers. He was sensibly and mani-
festly affected by-such cordiality on the part of such a meet-
ing. A stranger comparatively to the city-and having
only, in common with those before him, the ties of country,
and of past exertions and future hopes in a common cause-
that of rescuing the Constitution alike fromU open violation
and insidious undermining-he was greeted as a brother,
as a faithful public servant should be, by those whom,
though not his immediate constituents, he has faithfully
As soon as silence could be obtained, Mr. VWEBSTER
commenced his address, and when we say that for two
hours and a half he held the untiring attention of that au-
dience, all standing the while, by a speech addressed to the
understanding and patriotism, not to the imagination or
passions of those before him, we convey the strongest im-
pression of the surpassing excellence and power of the
We busily for an hour attempted a report of his remarks,-
but were finally-too much carried away alike by the mat-
ter and the manner of the speaker, and broke off.
We do not, therefore, offer any sketch of this remarka-
ble address, which, we must hope, Mr. WEBSTER will be
able to recall and write out, so that other thousands, and
hundreds of thousands may be profited and instructed by
reading, as were those who heard it.
Suffice it for the present to add, that as a review of the
past measures of the Administration, particularly in refer-
o..da to-tho-nhu e of-the pow-o f--o removal and appoint-
ment, and the regulation of the currency, by Executive
edicts, in contradiction of the expressed will of Congress,
and the well-settled interests of the nation, it was unan-
swerable. Its statements'were all arguments-or rather
demonstrations. With great decorum as to the mefi whose
acts he commented on, and without impeaching their mo-
tives, Mr. WV showed, as clearly as the noonday sun, that
the tendency of such acts on the part of rulers, and such
acquiescence on the part of the People, was to elective
Mr. WEBSTER declared his purpose at the outset to speak
out-without reservation, to lay his whole soul before the
meeting; to give a true, frank, and full expression of his
opinionsand views. That's what we want," was a cry
loudly uttered and'repeated. And that you shall have,"
said Mr. W. without ifs or buts-without non-committal
or evasion. .
At the close of the speech, it was announced by Mr.
Hone, that, through the politeness of the city authorities,
the Governor's Room idnthe City Hall had been put at the
disposition of Mr. W. and that he would accordingly re-
ceive his friends there to-day between 12 and 2 o'clock.
While these lines are passing through the press, the Hall
is crowded with citizens anxious to do honor to a man who
does honor to the country.

livered his credentials, addressing her Majesty as follows :
Madam: In presenting myself before your Majesty, I
have much satisfabtibn in saying, by the authority and in-
structions of the President of thie United States, that he
views, with the greatest pleasure, the amicable relations
which subsist between the Government of the United
States and that of Spain, and desires, with the liveliest

desirous to preserve and draw still closer the relations of

THE ARMY IN FLORIDA.
FROM THE NATIONAL GAZETTE, MARCH 15.
We have given insertion below, with great
pleasure, to a letter from an officer of the Ar-
my in Florida, of experience and distinction. th
We think, however, that although the People of in
the United States have exhibited some itrpa- p
tience to see the termination of the Indian war, w
and although that impatience may have been re- di
flected from the press, they have, in the main,
been disposed to do justice to those actually ed
employed in the service. This disposition iu- a
creases, too, with a knowledge of the obstacles p
which have been encountered and which still s
present themselves. Our own impressions with b,
regard to the conduct of the war have been too
often stated to require repetition'. The Army
has done its-duty with bravery and fidelity, and e
it deserved a better reward at the hands of the a
Government than unfounded imputations, cold I
neglect, grave charges, or such Capriciousness h-
of system that the service of the country, instead m
of being subject to a system of rules, came to
be regulated upon'an uncertain and partial ty- mr
ranny. We now expect better things. d
Extract of a letter dated Florida, February 25, 1837. i
After twenty-five years' service in the Army, I can claim 0t
the. honor of some personal experience of the hardships, t,
perils, and discomfort to which a soldier is exposed. All d
that I have previously seen is mere child's play, compared
to the vexatious and thankless toils we are now obliged to
endure. On the Niagara frontier, twenty-three years ago,
we had severe fighting, it is true, but we had less exposure,
less ft.''.:. and, above all, we had less denunciations. n
Thdre, we had a bold and fearless enemy to fight, and after s
an-engagement our Government applauded'us; and so far b
as we could'judge from the Gazettes of the day, we were a
told that our conduct deserved the thanks of the country. e
What is now our condition ? During the last year we S
have been marching hither and thither-now in swamps d
nearly to our waists, again in dense hammocks which you t
can only penetrate at the risk of having your eyes pulled
out, and your skin torn from your body. From the impos-
sibility of carrying any quantity of provisions with us on i
our.descents into the swamps, we are at times half-starveil, '
while the putrid water which we are obliged to drink is
sufficient to nauseate a hog. .
All this, and more, could be cheerfully endured, pro-
vided we were spared the maledictions with which we are
daily assailed by the press of the country. Can you ex-
plain why we are thus incessantly abused ? Has there I
been any instance in which we have failed of our duty ?
Have we on any occasion met the enemy's forces without
repelling them Have there not been exhibited by ouroffi-
cers many brilliantinstances of gallantry and enterprise? t
But in answer to all this you will say, the Army has not
expelled the enemy from Florida. -That is true; but is it
our fault? If the Indians will subdivide into detachments,
conceal themselves in long grass and impenetrable ham-
mocks, ve us a fire, and-then scatter like a flock of par-
tridges,how is it possible that they can be subdued, except-
by time and-by continually harassing them
The savages are now playing the part of Guerillas-they
fire and retreat. Did not the famous Guerilla chief, Mi-
na, in the mountains of Navarre, keep a French army of
40,000 men at bay during two years ? Do we not know
that the brigands of Calabria and Abruzzo have defied the-
Government of Naples for the last fifty .yeais, and are still I
unsubdued l Was there not a larger army than we ever
had in Florida, during the reign of the accomplished and
gallant king Murat, engaged for fifteen months in pursuing
the brigands in Calabria, and without complete success
Why, then, I ask, are we so much to be blamed for not
accomplishing what others have failed in? Can the fleet
and eagle-eyed Indian be more readily caught than the
brigand of Calabria or guerilla of Navarre? No one, cer-
tainly, can pretend to say that the swamps and hammocks
of Florida are more easily penetrated than the fastnesses of
the brigand and guerilla.
We were told a year ago by a self-complacent member
of Congress, that lie would contract to terminate the war
in three months by Kentucky and Tennessee volunteers.
We have had these volunteers; and what have they achiev-
ed? I am not disposed to detract from their merit, but cer-
tainly they accomplished but little.
The regular army now, as on all, previous occasions,
have shown themselves to be brave and efficient. In con-
nexion with the regular army, we have the corps of marines
under the command of Colonel Henderson, who' is an ami-
able gentleman and gallant and persevering officer. The
regiment hd commands he may well be proud of, for a
more enterprising class of officers or better disciplined men
I have never seen in any country.
A very handsome affair recently took place under the
command of Colonel Henderson, on the Hatchee Lustee.
Learning that a large body of Indians and negroes had con-
centrated in the Great Cypress Swamp, a detachment, con-
sisting of Captain Harris's mounted marines, Major Mor-
ris's brigade of Indians, and Colonel Caulfield's volunteers,
penetrated the swamp until they arrived at theriver Hatch-
ee Lustee, where the enemy was advantageously posted on
the opposite side of the river. This was a choice position ;
for feeling themselves secure from our bayonets, they could
fire their deadly rifle while protected by trees.
'Our troops, I am told, (for Was not in the action myself,)
displayed to the right and left, and in a sharp fire of twen-
ty minutes the Indians slowly receded, when an'brder was
given to cross the river. Five officers, namely, Major
Morris, Captain Hairis, of the marines, Lieutenants Cham-
bers, Searl, and Lee, gallantly crossed over a fallen tree,
and then led their men in face of a galling fire from the
savages. They were pursued for many miles into the
Swamp, knee deep in mud, until the darkness of night ar-
rested the pursuit. On a small scale, this was quite a
spirited affair; and I should feel as much honored in being
one of the fine officers who led the troops across the river,
as I was in being in. the battle of Chippewa. Though I
have mentioned this particular affair, there are twenty oth-
ers, that have occurred, during the campaign, equally cred-
itable. t ,
We will not demand credit for thus doing our duty; we
are under the ban, and are content to abide the issue ; but
we hope it. is not too much to ask of you the exercise of
little charity and forbearance towards us..
'SPErcI CURRENCY.-The Portland Advertiser states
that counterfeit Mexican dollars are in circulation there to
a considerable extent, and so well executed that their true
character can be discovered only by persons who are in a
habit of handling silver money. Counterfeit half dollars
ate also in circulation there. So it appears that the dan-
ger. of counterfeits is by no means avoided by resorting to,
specie as a circulating medium. The proper place for spe-

THE FAILURES AT NEW ORLEANS.
[CORRESPOHNDNCE OF THE COURIER AND ENQUIRER.]
NEw ORLEANS, MARCH 6, 1837.
When I wroteyou yesterday on the money market, and ir
ie difficulties that were encountered in meeting the pay- a'
ents of tthe nonth, I was afraid tomention the panic which la
prevails here, in consequence of the scarcity of money and s(
ant of confidence. Yesterday it was confidently reported d
at the two houses ofl ermann 4i- Briggs, and Lee, Mad- 0
iox, 4- Wood, could not meet their engagements, in con-
;quence of which they asked a delay, which was grant- It
d;. to-day, it is rumored they have stopped, and serious
apprehensions are entertained of other heavy failures. '
reduce is pouring down from the West. TheWestern C
)eculators will be sadly disappointed, for they will not 0
a able to realize the prices they have paid to the farmers. St
NEW ORLEANS, MARCH 7, 1837. a
As I feel very reluctant to increase the panic and want tI
f confidence prevailing at this moment at New Orleans u
among the commercial community, I will give you in pri- A
ate the result of my inquiries respecting the state of affairs n
ere, and the failures that have taken place, and you can p
.ake the use you please of my information. b
Great were the difficulties encountered by many of our C
merchantss oeall classes to effect their payments on Satur- wa
ay last, the 4th-some in consequence of their operations
n cotton, Western produce, Ihnds, lots, &c.&c. and others TV
wing to unexpected and unavoidable disappointment from
heir customers, and the planters who have not sent in time ti
ie produce pledged for advances, and a want ofaccommo- ti
action from the banks. It
It was reported on Saturday that the house of Hermann a
Briggs & Co., that of Lee, Maddox, & Wood, and others, d
were struggling against great difficulties to effect their c,
payments, which spread a general alarm in the market,
among the cotton men in particular. Early in the after- tl
non, Saturday, it was reported that' both houses had j,
topped payment, and in the evening it was said that the S
,anks-which, by the by, according'to general opinion, &
re deeply concerned in this panic--and thehouseof Lizar-- l
i, had agreed to come to the assistance of the two mention- a
d houses which were the most exposed to breaking, c
Sunday elapsed in an uncertainty, and yesterday, Meon- t!
lay, it was, asit appears, found impracticable to afford them th
he requisite relief, which compelled them to stop payment. 1
To the failure of Hermann, Briggsi & Co. and Lee, t.
Maddox, & Wood, whose liabilities, according to report, n
amount to three millions of dollars, was added that of Tho- q
nas Barett and two or three other first-rate houses; but a
upon inquiring I.1 found that the report was utterly false, v
specially as regards the house of Barett, which I was told n
was perfectly sound,-whilst, at the same time, I was-assur- V
:d that there was a great, exaggeration in the reports in b
circulation, though there was sufficient cause for a general
anic in the eventof th the banks refusing to come to the as- s
distance of the merchants, owing to the immense quantity t
of bills on hand; but veryfew transactions for cash having t
been effected within the last three months. Another re- a
port is, that bills to the amount of one million of dollars 1i
Irawn by the house of of New York, upon the a
houses of Hermann & Briggs, Lee, Maddox, & Wood
and others, already accepted here by the latter and dis-
counted, couldunot be taken up, and must be sent back to
The effect of these failures acd reports upon the bank,
you may .imagine yesterday there was no possibility of ob- I
gaining any discounts for first-rate bills, which increases
the embarrassments of the merchants- and traders, and
throws a complete damp upon the market in general, with-
out excepting cotton, in which nothing Was done yester-
day. A fall in the prices of all description's of Western
produce is expected, as likewise in cotton. Finally,the as-
pect of affairs is as gloomy as the weather,.the rain having
been pouring down upon us for the last 48 hours, without
any appearance of clearing up.

That is to say, that the three houses of Hermann, who
were closely connected, have definitively stopped; that of
T. Barett & Co. to-day, when Mr. Barettt resigned his
situation as Director of the Gas Company. Great exer-
tions have been made to support this-house, ljut their con-
nexion with the other two rendered useless and insufficient
the means placed attheir disposal. The liabilities of the
three establishments are variously stated at from nine to
ten millions of dollars; but it is expected that T. Barett &
Co. will be enabled to resume their payments next month.
The house of Lee, Maddox, & Wood, after a short sus-
pension of one day, have resumed their payments and ope-
rations, as it was found that they- had ample means to

The amount of bills drawn by upon the houses of
Hermann, and which will be returned protested to New
York, is variously estimated at from $1,200,000 to one mil-
lion and a half; but it is generally supposed that they must
be secured by the amount of shipments of cotton effected
by the Hermanns, and consignedto to the agent of the New
York house at Liverpool. I hope that this is the case.

S" NEw Y oRK,'MARCH 18. '
New York, for the week past, has been thrown
ito an unusual fever of excitement. Almost
ll classes of men, from the merchant to the day -
aborer, have suffered in consequence of the
severe pressure upon the money market. Thurs0
ay evening brought to our city the worst news
f the week, reporting to us the failure for a
mrge sum of one of the first houses in New Or-
oans. It was also reported that Messrs. Her-
nann & Son, and Messrs. Hermann, Briggs &
,o. with others, had failed for several' nilii.:.ns
f dollars. It was known that tlhe i, i siL Jo-
ephs, of this city, were responsible for them to
large amount, say eleven or twelve hundred
thousand dollars. The Messrs. Joseph were
n prepared for such news, and the consequence
'as that, early yesterday morning, it was an-
ounced that they would be compelled to stop
payment. The Express Mail last evening:
brought better news. The Messrs. Joseph re-
eived the following letter from one of the firms
-ho were compelled to stop payment:
NEW ORLEANS, MARCH 9, 1837.
hIesrs. J. L. & S. JOSEPH & Co.
Dear Sirs: We addressed you on the 7th inst. in rela-
on to the affairs of Hermann, Briggs, & Co. Since then
heir matters have taken several different turns, and at
st, by the proposition of yesterday, promise an early and
sati-factory adjustment, of which there -is scarcely a
oubt, as the points of the arrangement, in a measure,
ome from the banks themselves.
Our time being all taken up in endeavoring to effect
hose arrangements, leave us no leisure for any-other ob-
act, and as a consequence, our advices must be short.
-uffice it, however, now to say, that Reynolds, Marshall,
SByrne make a new house both here and in Natehez, for
tie liquidation of the affairs of Hermann, Briggs, & Co.,
nd to the which their whole fortunes will be carried-
ertainly not less than three millions of dollars-and in
he course of to-day or to-morrow all the banks will cer-.
tainly come into the measure, giving the parties 9, 12, 15,
8, 21, and 2-1 months for the payment of their debts-
heir Northern liabilities to he arranged for first, but the
manner is not yet'fixed. Our position with the house in
ucstion has so much impaired our credit as seriously to
Effect ournegotiations, which were our only reliance for a
while to place you in funds for our maturities; but the very
moment their business is settled, we will remit to you the
whole amount of our debt in some shape or other, accepta-
ble, we trust, to all the parties concerned.
In the mean time, do not, if you can possibly avoid it,
spend your payments, as you will neither lose by the par-
ies, nor be placed under cash advances many days after
his reaches you. Yesterday morning six of the banlksliad
agreed to the proposed measure, and we have this moment
rarnt that two more, whose boards have just met, have
lso come in. Yours, truly,
THOMAS BARETT & CO,,
Upon the reception of this letter, Messrs. Jo-
seph announced their intention of immediately
resuming payment, but, by advice oftheirfriends,
they have'concluded to await further news from
Now Orleans. Since two o'clock to-dayI have
ieard it rumored that the Messrs. Joseph will
not be able to resutn8 payment.
Three P. M.-I have just been informed of
t!p failure of four among our best houses-two
in Wall street, and two more in the vicinity of
Wall street. I forbear to mention names, as it
can do no good, and may 'do evil., We are see-
ing our worst days, and look upon the Govern-
ment as the chief author of our troubles.
The money market to-day in the city has
been no easier than during the earlier part of
the week. I have been told of an instance
where five per cent. a month was paid' for ready
cash upon good bank stock. Stocks have gone
up to-day: United States Bank 3 a 3J per ct. ;
other kinds of stock have risen a shade. ....
The mails from the North failed entirely yes-
terday, and have not yet arrived to-day.
The North river has opened as -far as New-
burg, and it is expected will be -Open as far as
Hudson by Monday.
The weather in the city to-day has been dull,
and the rain is now falling. Members of Con-
gress and ex-members are here in great num-
bers. Mr. WEBSTER still continues in the city,
and is receiving the attention of all classes of
men, and I believe of all parties.

I 1pHE INDIAN'S PANACEA-For the cure oftthue
T.1 matism, Scrofula, or King's Evil, Gout, Sciatica or Hip
Gout, Incipient Cancers, Salt Rheum, Syphilitic and Mercurial
diseases, particularly Ulcers and painful affection of the bones,
ulcerated throat and nostrils; Ulcers of every description,
Fever Sores, and Internal Abscesses; Fistulas, Scald Head,
Scurvy, Biles, Chronic Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Blotches, and
every variety of Cutaneous Affection ; Chronic Catarrh, Head-
ache from particular causes ; pain in the Stomach and Dyspep-
sia, proceeding from vitiation; Affections of the Liver, Chronic
Inflammation of the Kidneys, and general debility, caused by a
torpid action of the vessels of the skin. It is singularly efficacious
in renovating those constitutions which have been broken down
by injudicious treatments or juvenile irregularities. In general
terms, it is recommended in all those diseases which arise from
impurities in the blood, or vitiation of the humors, of whatever
name or kind.
Some of the above complaints may require some trifling assist-
ant applications, which the circumstances of the case will dic-
tate; but, for a general remedy or purificator, to remove the
cause, the Indian's Panacea will generally be found sufficient.
TO THE PUBLIC.
How true it is that modern physicians, in their ambition to
excel in their profession, explore the vast fields of science by
the aid of Chemistry and seek out new remedial agents to ar-
rive at perfection in tbeir practice by means of art alone, and
entirely overlook and neglect, as beneath their notice, the rich
and bounteous stores of medicine which the Almightyhas caused
to spring out of the earth in every clime. And how much more
true it is that whilst the American lhvsician looks to foreign
countries or many of his most common and necessary articles,
perpetually changing, as they are, at the dictate of fashion and
folly, he is surrounded in his own country with an endless pro-
fusion of medical plants sufficient to answer any indication in
disease, and yet he is ignorant of their virtues, and they are suf-
fered to "waste their healing on the desert air."
The effects of vegetable medicines upon the system are tern
porary-those of minerals lasting. The former exert their ef-
fects aild pass off-the latter, mercury in particular, act chemi-
cally upon the solids, decomposing the bones, and undermining
the constitution by a slow and sure destruction.
The greater congeniality, efficiency, and safety of vegetable
tremedies, compared with mineral, may be estimated by con-
trasting the ancient practice 'with tihe modern ; or, to bring it
more immediately under our own observation, the Indian prac-
tice with that of the white man. WVho, in America,- has not
known or-heard of repeated instances wherein some decrepit,
unpretending female Indian, by means of her simple remedies
alone, has effected the most rapid and astonishing cures, after
the whole Materia Medica of the common practice, directed in
the most skilful manner, has failed And who has not been
surprised at beholding the comparative ease and facility with
which the Indian frees himself from any disease, and at the al-
nmost total absence ofclhronic dishes among them 'i Who has
ever heard of an Indian with. a constitution broken and ruined
by ill treatments r And can a doubt exist that th is happy exemp-
tion of tie savages fom most of the ills which the flesh of civil-
ized man is heir to is chiefly owing to the more genial and safe
remedies which lie employs? This astonishing difference in
success is a fair exemplification of the infinite superiority of the
simple and safe means of cure which God has created for the
benefit of his children over those which the pride and the art of
man have invented.
From a long residence among a portion of the aboriginal in-
habitants of his country, and intimate acquaintance with the moe-
thods of cure of some of thdir most successful practitioners, the
proprietor of" The Indian's Panacea" acquired a knowledge of'
some of their most powerful ind favorite remedies. From these
liee elected such a erem ost efficacious and appropriate, and,
after various experiments to testltheir principles and strength,
lie has combined them in the form here presented, as the most
perfect and beneficial for thl purpose for" which it is recom-
The proprietor offers this preparation to the Public with the
consciousness that he is placing within its reach a remedy capa-
ble of relieving many of hIis afflicted fellow-beings who are suf-
fering under the various chronic and obstinate complaints to
which it is applicable. To such it will prove of incalculable
value, as the means, and, in many cases, the only means of re-
lieving their sufferings, and restoring them once more to health
and happiness. Thiisis not offered as a common remedy that
may, perchance, be equally good with many others now in use,
tnt as one which is capable of saving life in many extreme cases
when all the usual remedies fail. This it has done repeatedly;.
and this is the reputation it has obtained wherever it has been
It is only a fewsyears since this preparation was first present-
ed to thIe Public, but in that time some thousands of persons
might be found who would solemnly declare that they believed
their lives were saved by it, and in many cases after they had
tried meost and perhaps all thIe common remedies in vain.
Wherever it is known it is rapidly coming into use, and tliis af-
fords thie most substantial and convincing proof of its merits.
The value of this Panacea is mast conspicuous in those long
standing and obstinate syphilitic and scrofulous affections whisk h
have defied all other remedies, and particularly in those cases
where mercury has been so lavishly used as to cause distressing
pains in the bones, nodes, mercurial ulcers, derangement pf the
digestive organs, &c. These it completely removes, and in all
cases it entirely eradicates the disease and thie effects of mer-
cury, renovates tile constitution, and leaves the patient sound

Equity-February Term, 18387.
Mary Ann Mitchell and others.
T HE object of this suit is to obtain a decree for the convey-
Sance of part of a tract of land called Mitchell's Adven-
ture.1" The original bill states that a certain Tilghman Mit-
chell, being seized in fee of- tract of land called Mitchell's
Adventure, conveyed the same unto a certain Thomas L. Mit-
choll, with power to dispose of it for his benefit; that said land
was patented to Tilghman, and held by him individually ; that
Singleton Mitchell having defrayed one-half of the expensesof
said patent, a deed for his part was executed by thesaid Thomas
to the said Singleton, with the consent of the said Tilghman ; and
that Singleton hath since conveyed thesaanme to a certain Hen-
ry Mitchell; that Tilgliman and Thomas have sold the balance
of said land to a certain Mary Ann Prather, formerly Butler,
andd executed a bond of conveyance to the same ; that
Prather and wife have assigned the said bond to a certain Lib-
burn Mitchell, who hath since transferred the same to the said
Henry Mitchell; that that whole of the purchase money for the
same has been paid by the said Henry, excepting $100, with
same interest for which the said Tilghman holds his single bill,
and which he is ready to pay when he can obtain title to tihe
said land. Thie supplemental bill states the substance of the
original bill, and also that a decree was passed by Prince
George's county Court, at November term, 1836, against the
said Tilghmian, for the conveyance of said land ; that, before
the said decree was rendered, the said Tilghman died, leaving
the following heirs, to wit: Mary Ann, wife of the said Tilgh-
man Mitchell, and Sarah Mitchell, Rebecca Mitchell, Johu Al-
exander Mitchell, Maria Ellen Mitchell, and Thomas Morti-
more Mitchell, minors under twenty-one years of' age, mand who
reside in.the State of Ohio. It is thereupon ordered by Prince
George's county Court, sitting as a Court of Equity, this 14th
day of February, 1837, that the complainant, by causing a copy
of this order to be.inserted in some newspaper published in
Washington city once a week for four successive weeks before
the- first Monday of April next, give notice to the said absent
defendants, Mary Awnn Mitchell, Sarah Mitchell, Rebecca Mit-
chell, John Alexander Mitchell, Maria Ellen Mitchell, and
Thomas Mortimore Mitchell, of the object and substance of the
original and supplemental bill, and warn them to be and appear
in this Court, in person or by guardian, on or before the second
Monday in July next, to answer the premises, and show cause,
if any they have, why a decree should'not pass as prayed.

On the other hand, when the affliction is owing to other causes
-other means of help must be sought for-but-and it may be
repeated-that, in eases where deafness is caused by nervous
weakness, tle remedy will restore hearing, as hath been expe-

many of Iis neighbors also.
Now--according to the Doctor's practice and principles, that

The restoration of hearing is brought about without giving any
physic !-without giving any medicine-as hath been ascertain-
ed in numbers and numbers of instances. Therefore, and in
part return for such great benefits received, we make the above-
known for the good of our fellow-citizens in similar distress.
Assistance is sent-free of postage, for as many as are afflict-

fee of five dollars.
For a fee of ten dollars assistance is sent-free of postage al-

may be in want of some.
And in case other sickness besides deafness and loss of eye-
sight happening, help is sent for such sickness without any

This is considered a praiseworthy plan. And in conclusion,
it will, no doubt, be very satisfactory for people to know that the

The following is an extract ofa letter from Mr. Baker, to the
My friend-The method of using Dr. Green's remedy is ine
nocent, .is easy, and performs the cure by strengthening the
nerves. My neighbor Jones's wife thought she would try it
too, being a long time troubled with weak and sore eyes, a long
time troubled with dimness and failing of sight, and over one
eye a film (a skin) was beginning to grow and spread itself.
This offllction, together with liher deafness, caused by nervous
weakness, very much alarmed the faneily, insomiuchl that help
was sent for, and which arrived per mail free of postage ; and
which hellp in little more than a week made them as good and
