the appearance of being soaked in warm water; he has a
scar on one of his arms, occasioned by a burn, and a scar on
the top of his right foot, produced by a wagon wheel pass-
ing over it; he has also knots on the first joint of the foot.
His clothing, when he left home, was a white kersey rounda-
bout and pantaloons, Osnaburgh shirt, and an old straw hat.

least provocation, and it is likely made his escape by the assist-

October, 1837. I will give the above reward for his delivery
in Winchester jail, or one hundred dollars, and pay all reason-
able expenses. W. J. JONES,

A RKANSAS COTTON LANDS.-35,354 IAcres
of Land, situated in the southern portion of the State of
Arkansas, in the Washington district, are offered for sale on
most reasonable and liberal terms, by the subscriber, as Attorney
for the Proprietors, with authority to convey title.
These lands are represented, upon authentic and most res-
pectaLle authority, to be among the most valuable lands in Ar-
kansas, owing to the southern location adapting them to the
cultivation ot Cotton; and none in the United States possess
greater advantages of soil, climate, and location.
They were selected by a first-rate judge of lands-a citizen
of Arkansas, a gentleman of high standing and unblemished
honor and veracity-who had the choice of the whole country
from which to make his selection. Vast tracts in the same re-
gion, which he rejected, have since been entered and sold at
five dollars per acre to actual settlers, who have moved or are
now moving upon them.
The great advantage of this portion of the Cotton region of the
South over others is its entire adaptation to the cultivation of
Cotton, together with the healthfulness of the country, which is
represented to exceed that of any other Cotton country. The
lands are located upon small streams, convenient to navigation,
afford an abundance of fine spring water, and are in all respects
admirably situated for settlement and cultivation. The country
round about them is now rapidly filling up, with an intelligent
and wealthy population.
The subscriber is furnished with exact maps and descriptions
of the several tracts, and the townships in which they are
situate ; and has no doubt of being able to satisfy those who may
wish to purchase that the lands are what they are described to
be, and also that the price is lower than that of other lands in
the State, of equal quality, and as well located: one of the pro-
prietors being well known in this city as a gentleman of the
highest respectability, whose representations can be entirely
relied upon.
The lands would be sold in separate tracts, of whole, half and
quarter sections; one-third of the purchase money to be paid
down, the balance in one and two years, without interest; or a
special inducement would be presented to a company of indivi-
duals, who might be disposed to take the whole tract, by a con-
siderable reduction of the price.
Citizens of Maryland, intending to remove to the Cotton
countries, would do well to examine these lands.
Further particulars would promptly be communicated in per-
son, or in writing to persons at a distance, upon application to
the subscriber. JOHN G. PROUD,
Office opposite the Custom House, Water st., Baltimore.

I EACHER WANTED.-The subscriber wishes to
employ an assistant male teacher, to aid in conducting a
Female Seminary. Liberal compensation will be given to one
who is well qualified to teach the higher branches of an English
education, and who will produce satisfactory testimonials of
moral character. None other need apply.
Any communication addressed to the subscriber at Warren-
ton, Fauquier county, Virginia, will be attended to.
mar 13-6tcp ANN JENKINS.


N N OTICE.-I offer at private sale two lots ofground situate
T in the northern part of Georgetown, Nos. 280 and 281.
They formerly belonged to William Duvall, who purchased
them of the late John Threlkeld. No. 280 contains twenty-four
) thousand square feet; the other, it is believed, is larger ;contents
- not recollected ; it extends to the top of the hill, northwardly.
s They are in a healthy part of the city "d 'r" al, 'a3rWr Oiml

S-rTerms-iiSnte-third of the purchase money to be paid at the
time of sale, and the remaining two-thirds in two equal annual
1 payments, with interest. Approved security to be given.
All persons are cautioned against meddling with the mate-
rials of the old building, or with the soil, without authority
r from me.
Letters, post paid, directed to me, near Good Luck post office,
, will be promptly attended to.

M ILL PROPERTY FOR SALE.-The subscriber
will sell at private sale his valuable Mill, situated near
the mouth of the Monocacy, in Montgomery county, immedi-
ately on the public road leading from the mouth of the Monocacy
to Georgetown. The improvements are a large Stone Mill
House, good Saw Mill, comfortable Stone Dwelling, with a suf-
ficient number of out-buildings. The mill runs two pairs of
stones, and the flqgr from said mill has always held a high char-
acter. There are about thirteen Acres of Land attached to the
seat. The neighborhood is remarkable for health, and good
society. The property is only two miles from the Potomac
Canal, and eight miles from the Point of Rocks; and the sur-
rounding country well adapted to the growth of wheat.
Terms, which will be liberal, will be made known by appli-
cation to the subscriber, living on the premises.

A BEAUTIFUL HEAD OF HAIR is the grand-
est ornament belonging to the human frame. How
strangely the loss of it changes the countenance, and prema-
turely brings on the appearance of old age, which causes many
to recoil at being uncovered, and sometimes even to shun so-
ciety to avoid the jests and sneers of their acquaintance; the re-
mainder of their lives is consequently spent in retirement. In
short, not even the loss of property fills the generous, thinking
youth with that heavy, sinking gloom as does the loss of his
hair. To avert all these unpleasant circumstances, OLDRIDGE'S
BALM OF COLUMBIA stops the hair from falling off, on the first
application, and a few bottles restore it again. It likewise pro-
duces eyebrows and whiskers, prevents the hair from turning
gray, makes it curl beautifully, and frees it from scurf. 'Nume-
rous certificates of the first respectability, in support of the vir-
tues of Oldridge's Balm, are shown by the proprietors.

gj: Read the following:
Robert Wharton, Esq. late Mayor of Philadelphia, has certi-
fied, as may be seen below, to the high character of the follow-
ing gentlemen:
The undersigned do hereby certify that we have used the
Balm of Columbia discovered by J. Oldridge, and have found it
highly serviceable, not only as a preventive against the falling
off of hair, but also a certain restorative.

JOHN D. THOMAS, M. D. 163 Race st.
JOHN S. FUREY, 101 Spruce street.
HUGH McCURDY, 243 South 7th street.
JOHN GARD, Jr. 123 Arch street.
The aged, and those who persist in wearing wigs, may not
always experience its restorative qualities, yet it will certainly
raise its virtues in the estimation of the Public when it is known
that three of the above signers are more than 50 years of age,
and the others notless than 30.,

[From the Mayor.]
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
CITY OF PHILADELPHIA.
I, Robdrt Wharton, Mayor of said city of Philadelphia, do
hereby certify that I am well acquainted with Messrs. J. P. In-
glis, John S. Furey, and Hugh McCurdy, whose names are
signed to the above certificate, that they are gentlemen of cha-
racter and respectability, and, as such, full credit should be
given to the said certificate.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand, and
[L. s.j caused the seal of the city to be affixed, this sixth day
of December, &c.

CATALOGUE OF REASONS for using Dr*

A CHART of the Organization of the Governments
of the Aorth American Republics, presenting a
comparative Synopsis of the Constitutions of the several States
and that of the United States; projected, compiled, and arrang-
ed to accompany "Political Sketches of Eight Years in Wash-
ington," by Robert Mayo, M. D. Just published, and fir sale
(price 50 cents) by GARRET ANDERSON.
This Chart is published in advance ofthe "Political Sketches"
it was intended to accompany, as the latter necessarily awaits a
more full return of subscription papers before it can be put to
press. The Chart will be delivered to subse'ribers without de-
lay, at 50 cents each, for which amount they will be entitled to
a deduction from the price of the book when published. It is
sanguinely hoped that the great pains manifest in the compila-
tion and workmanship of the Chait will give an impetus to the
subscription for the entire work.
Also, on hand, a few remaining copies of Sketches on Fi-
nance," with an Appendix giving an account of the late conspi-
racy against the Bank of the United States, and an authentic
statement of the original scheme of General Houston and his
confederates for the invasion of Texas, with a fac simile of the
"Cipher Alphlabet of Secret Correspondence" for prosecuting

disease returned again, and I was obtiged totlake iedjic n

the recommendation of Major John Beard, I began to try Beck-

since have taken no other medicine whatever. Whenever I
find my stomach or bowels becoming deranged, I resort to these
pills, and invariably find relief. I have heard a number of
persons speak of the benefits they have received from these
pills, in the most decided terms. I am well acquainted with
Dr. Beckwith; he for a time resided in this place, and was my

E DGEHILL SCHOOL.--Princeton, N. J.--
This institution has now been nine years in successful
operation, during which time it has received the approbation
and patronage of Mr. CLAY, Mr. SOUTHARD, Mr. BIDDLE, and
many other most distinguished gentlemen, who have selected
it as a place for the education of their sons. !t is believed, from
its plan, to combine the essential advantages of private and
public education, and to afford an opportunity of no ordinary
character to those desirous of giving their sons a thorough edu-
cation.
The system of instruction pursued in this Seminary claims no
affinity to the so called easy methods which propose to remove
all labor and drudgery from the acquisition of knowledge.
The subscriber cannot promise any truly valuable mental ac-
quisiton, which is not the result of a slow, patient, pains-taking
process on the part of the pupil himself. What he does pro-
mise, is, by every means in his power, to stimulate the pupil to
this invigorating process. His object is to lay deep and broad
the foundation of a good education-not to make mere learned
boys, but to subject boys to a discipline by which they may be-
come learned and able men. While, therefore, the studies pur-
sued, and the time devoted to each, vary somewhat according to
the destination of the pupils for commercial or professional life,
it is his constant aim to make the instructions in each department
of the most rigid and thorough-going kind. Boys studying
Greek and Latin are constantly exercised in making double
translations from the English into these languages, and the re-
verse, and, as soon as sufficiently advanced, are required to
compose in these languages, and to write Latin and Greek
verses after the manner of the celebrated English and European
schools. Boys who are intended for commercial life, and whose
parents on this account do not wish them instructed in the An-
cient Languages, are trained to accuracy and promptness in the
practical applications of mathematics, and receive more ample
opportunities for a practical acquaintance with the Modern Lan-
guages. The French is studied with a view to its being a spo-
ken, and not a written language merely; and to this end it is the
only medium of communication allowed at table, as well as at
the recitations in that department, and the more advanced class-
es are required to employ this language in reciting in other de-
partments.
The school consists entirely of boarders, no day scholars be-
ing received. The teachers and pupils live with the principal,
eating at the same table, sleeping under the same roof, and con-
stituting in all respects one family. The discipline is entirely
of the parental kind. Religious instruction is sedulously attend-
ed to, chiefly from the Scriptures themselves, and without insist-
ing upon the peculiarities of any one sect. The grounds are
ample, affording abundant opportunity for healthful sports in the
open air, as well as for the exercise of ingenuity and taste in
gardening and various mechanical arts to those who are disposed
to amuse themselves in this manner. No boy is allowed to leave
the premises except by permission of the principal, and then
usually in company with a teacher. The strictest attention is
paid to keeping the dormitories well ventilated, dry, and clean.
The teachers sleep in the dormitories with the boys, and the lat-
ter are not permitted to speak, nor to hold any communication
with each other, from the time of entering the dormitory till that
of leaving it. Opportunities for vice Wreentirely excluded, the
toary to receive bos over twelve years of ag. Tome aeirt
IyuflQfmtip eing never without th"
supervision of the prince pal"o norrre-w-syassistants. Pocket
money is distributed weekly by the principal, the amount de-
'pending upon the conduct of the pupil during the week, though
never exceeding twenty-five cents. It is not desirable nor cus-
tomary to receive boys over twelve years of age. Those eight
or nine years old are preferred. The school year is divided
into two sessions and two vacations, the winter session commenc-
ing the first day of November, and the summer session the first
day of May, and the vacations being the months of April and
October.
The studies embraced in the plan of this Seminary are the
Greek, Latin, French, and Spanish languages; Greek and
Roman Antiquities; Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Sur-
veying; Spelling, Reading, English Grammar, English Com- '
position and Elocution; Geography, Ancient and Modern;
History, Ancient and Modern; Evidences of Christianity;
Penmanship, Book-keeping, Sacred Music, the ute of the
Globes, and the Elements of Astronomy and Natural History. i
The charge for each pupil is three hundred dollars per annum,
payable semi-annually in advance. This sum is in full for all
the tuition, of whatever character, which the plan of the school
embraces; for boarding, lodging, washing, mending, fuel, light,
including also the use of bedding, books, stationery, maps, globes,
libraries, and other privileges. The parent or guardian will E
have no extra charges, except for moneys advanced or articles of I
clothing procured at his direction by the principal, for board in
bhe vacations, or for medical attendance, if at any time it should
becomrne necessary.

ROOKEVILLE ACADEMY.-This Institution,
situated in Brookeville, Md. is now in successful operation
and-extensively patronized from abroad. The health and morality
of the neighborhood and its celebrity preclude the necessity of
a detailed account of its advantages at this time. In addition to
apparatus to explain the most important parts of Natural Philo-
sophy and Chemistry, an extensive cabinet of Minerals has
been recently procured, by reference to which the important
science of Mineralogy is studieJ to great advantage by the
student.
Pupils from a distance board with the Principal, who in con-
nexion with his Assistants superintend at all times their studies
and general deportment. Boarders are required to attend bible
recitation and public worship on the Sabbath.
In accordance with the philosophy of the mind, great care is
taken to accommodate studies to the capacity of the learner, and,
in order to prevent pupils from passing over any study without
understanding it, examinations are held every week on the
studies of the same.
The next session will commence on the 16th inst. Terms per

BECKWITH'S ANTIDYSPEPTIC PILLS.-
For the most part, those who are already dyspeptic, or by
their habits and pursuits in a fair way to become so, are com-
roonly not much in doubt of the fact, and sufficiently disposed to
employ a remedy entitled to their confidence. The object of
this advertisement is, to offer to those who may require a medi-
cine of this kind, such weight of testimony as will satisfy any
reasonable mind that, under all circumstances, these pills may
be tried with safety, at least. It is presumed such evidence
as the following would be thought sufficient to establish much
more important matters:
From the Rt. Rev. Levi S. Ives, D. D. Bishop of North
Carolina.
""RALEIGH, MARCH 2, 1835.
"Having for the last three years been intimately acquainted
with Dr. John Beckwith, of this city, and enjoyed his profes-
sional services, 1 take pleasure in stating that his character as
a Christian gentleman and experienced physician, entitles his
testimony, in regard to the use of his Antidyspeptic Pills, to the
entire confidence of the Public. My experience of the good ef-
fects of these Pills, for two years past, satisfies me of their emi-
nent value, particularly in aiding in impaired digestion, and
warding off bilious attacks. Having been for a long time sub-
ject to the annual recurrence of such attacks, I was in the habit
of resorting for security against them, and with very partial
success, to a liberal use of calomel or blue pill. But since my
acquaintance with the Antidyspeptic Pil ofDr. Beckwith, which
he prescribed in the first instance himself, I have not been un-
derthe necessity of using mercury in any form, besides being
wholly exempt from bilious attacks. Several members of my
family are experiencing the same beneficial effects.
"L. S. IVES."

From the Rev. F. L. Hawks, D. D.
"Nzw YoaK, FEB. 3, 1836.
I have no knowledge, derived from experience, of the effi-
cacy of Dr. Beckwith's Pills; but I know that several of my
personal friends in North Carolina, whom I left some years ago
suffering severely under dyspepsia, were in good health when
I saw them, on a visit made a few months since, and all ascrib-
ed their recovery to the use of Beckwith's Pills.
"I know that the certificates obtained by the Doctor in North
Carolina are from gentlemen of the highest respectability, and
several of them stated to me verbally that which is contained
in their published certificates. I have the most entire confi-
dence in them.
"I also know Dr. Beckwith, and have known him from my
boyhood; and I cheerfully state, with Bishop Ives, 'that his
character as a Christian gentleman and experienced physician,
entitles his testimony, in regard to the use of his Arntidyspeptic
Pills, to the entire confidence of the Public.'
"F. L. HAWKS."

From Governor Iredell.
"'AueGBT 21, 1834,
"Dr. Beekwith's Antidyspeptic Pills have beei used inmy
family, which is a large one, with the most beneficial effect. A

"JAS. IREDEJ.L."
From the Hon. George E. Badger. LL.D.
"RALEIiH, NOV. 7, 1834.
"For several years past, Dr. Beckwith's Antidyspeptic Pills
have been used as a domestic medicine in my family. I have
myself frequently used them for the relief of headache, acid,
and otherwise disordered stomach, resulting from imprudence
or excessin diet, and I have had many opportunities of learning
from others their effects, when used by them for like purposes.
My experience and observation justify me in saying that the re-
lief afforded by'the Pills is- generally speedy, and almost al-
ways certain ; that they may be taken at any t ime without dan-
ger or inconvenience, and that their operations attended by no
nausea or other disagreeable effects whatever; and though I
have known many persons use them, I have known none whodid
not approve them; none who sustained any injury, and none who
failed to derive benefit from their use. And, upon the whole, I
do not hesitate to recommend them as an agreeable, safe, and
efficacious remedy in dyspeptic affections, and believe them my-
self to be the best antidyspeptic medicine ever offered to the
Public. "G. E. BADGER."
From the Hon. Richard Hines, late member of Congress
from the Tarboro' district.
HERMITAGE, near Sparta, Edgecombe co. Nov. 10, 1834.
"I was severely afflicted for several years with dyspepsia,
jaundice, and general ill health. I called in the aid of eminent
physicians, and visited most of the mineral springs of celebrity
n the United States, without any material benefit, until my case
was thought to be hopeless. Being compelled in the winter of
1824 to spend some weeks in Raleigh, I consulted Dr. Beck-
with, when he prescribed what is now known as Beckwith's
Antidyspeptic Pills,' by the use of which I soon became much
better. I continued to take them for some months, until my
health was entirely restored, to which they mainly contributed.
Another member of my family subsequently used them with
ike benefit and success.
" Having been many years well acquainted with Dr. Beck-


I












Messrs. EDITORS: I have lately seen the new table
showing the number of persons for the war complement of
the different classes of vessels of the Navy. Although
there are objections to other parts, I shall confine myself in
the following remarks to the Marines.
In noticing the number of Marines, there has been giv-
en, it must appear evident to any one who will reflect on
the subject, that they who thus decided could not have
given it that strict consideration which it deserves.
In the first place, let us consider as to the efficiency of
the number allowed. A line of battle ship requires, at the
lowest calculation, the following sentinels, viz. Spar deck,
one at each of the gangways, one on the forecastle, one or-
derly at the cabin door, making four for that deck. Upper
gun deck, one at the cabin door, one at the water tank,
one at the galley, making three for that deck. Lower gun
deck, one for prisoners. Orlop deck, one at the fore-maga-
zine, and one at the main-hatch, making a total often sen-
tinels. Others might be placed to advantage in other parts
of the ship. Ten sentinels require a guard of thirty men,
which gives three relieves. In order to meet this number,
the whole guard consists of forty-eight privates ; now,divid-
ing these into four messes, and add that of the non-commis-
uioned officers, it requires five for cooks, and allowing five
as the average number of sick and prisoners, there is left
thirty-eight privates to perform the duty which in the Ar-
my requires ninety men, that is, allowing one day on and
two-off. It is true, when at sea, three of these sentinels
would be dispensed with, but it must be recollected that at
sea the same duty is required of the marines as the seamen,
that is, they constitute a part of the after-guard."
In order to show the perfect folly of such a course, I
would ask any officer of the Army what he would think
were he required to give a daily guard of ten sentinels, and
have but thirty-eight men to meet the order ? Would he
not come to the conclusion that those who gave the order
were either ignorant of the nature of the service, or that it
was their intention to oppress the men ?
In the other class of vessels, the objections to this ar-
rangement exist in a greater degree; for instance, to a sec-
ond-rate frigate there are but twenty-one privates allowed,
while to one of first-rate there are thirty-one. Now, it is
well known that the former requires the same number of
sentinels as the latter, and they both require at least seven
sentinels each, which, in the case of the second-rate, has
just the number of Marines (21) to furnish that number,
and leaves none for cooks, &c. In sloops of war, there are
not enough to give one guard, as they require four senti-
nels, and there are but ten privates allowed. To brigs and
other small vessels there are none allowed. It is a question
whether these vessels do not require guards as well as the
others, and in one point of view more so. The smaller
the vessel, the more important is the use of musketry in
action, and yet they are without a Marine.
In the English service, the guard of a gun brig is larger
than that of one of our second-rate frigates. That of their
frigates exceeds by twelve that of our line of battle ships,
and that of their three-deckers exceeds by 102 more than
our Pennsylvania" would have.
I am well aware that it is argued that our service is not
subject to the mutinies and other disturbances that the
English Navy is. Perhaps it is so as a general rule; but it
is to the knowledge of the writer of this article, that two
years have not elapsed since the guard of one of our fri-
gates was called to protect the quarter deck against a rush
made by the sailors, demanding some privilege, and for
some time the Marines werekept ready at a moment's warn-
ing, in case any disturbance should arise from the above
circumstance.
The fact cannot be denied that there is with some of the
naval officers a great animosity against the Marine Corps ;
Many expedients have been tried to rid the Navy of it, but
it has been decided to retain it. But how retain it ?
Why, under circumstances truly mortifying to the corps.
It is high time this question was settled. Is there any
'necessity for the corps ? If not, disband it, and throw those
officers, who have served from fifteen to thirty years, on
their own resources in these prosperous times. If there is,
let them be placed on a footing that the officers of the corps
(with their brothers of the Navy and Army) can look for-
ward to the tine when they may have an independent com-
mand. Midshipmen and cadets, when they enter the ser-
vice, have the satisfaction to know the time may arrive
when they will have the highest command; but it is reser-
ved for the marine officer to know, were he to live to the
age of Methusaleh, he can never realize that pleasure. Nor
is it necessary for the good of the service that such a state
of things should exist; for where can be the objection to
have the marine depots in the immediate vicinity of the
navy yards, and those depots to be under thecommafdd of the
-. cers, and uards detailed daiv wU'e, k faonth-
those guard s ubjecLto the orders of the command "
he yards
There is one more view I wish to take of the subject,
and I am done. It is this: One of the strongest reasons
that has been assigned for creating the rank of Admiral in
our service is the mortification that our commanders of
squadrons experience in coming in' contact with foreign
squadrons, consisting of a less force than their own, com-
manded by an Admiral, while they hold but the rank of
Captain, with the nominal one of Commodore. That this
is a strong reason in their behalf, I will not deny ; but is it
not surprising that those whp are so tenacious of their own
feelings should be willing to bring the same mortification
on members of their own service ? And, in order to show
such is the fact, I will suppose a case. I will take the
Pennsylvania" in a port with an English frigate; the
guard of the former consists of 48 privates, (commanded by
a Major or Lieut. Colonel, as provision is made to send
these officers to sea;) the latter consists of 60 privates, com-
manded by a First Lieutenant; it becomes necessary to
send these guards'on shore; now, let me ask, where is
there a case where an officer would feel more mortified than
the commanding Marine officer of the Pennsylvania 2?
We have on the one hand a Marine guard from an Ame-
rican three-decker of 48 privates, commanded by a Lieut.
-Colonel, and, on the other, a guard of a frigate of 60 pri-
vates, commanded by a First Lieutenant. And does it not
seem singular that, if it is necessary to have only 48 pri-
vates, it should be so to have a field officer on board 1
If the above remarks should be the cause of bringing
the subject before those who have the power to remedy


the evil, and should effect it, it will fully satisfy the hum-
ble efforts of a

STEAM SHIP COLUMBUS.

Messrs. GALES & SEATON: In the Philadelphia Satur-
day News of the 21st instant I have read the following de-
scription of the Steam Ship Columbus, which is supposed
to be on her way from England to this country :
A Liverpool paper gives the following account of the Colum-
bus steam ship which is now on her way to this country: "She
is propelled by Mr. Howard's paten(vapour engines, of about
120 horses' power, and can carry fifty days' fuel at the same
immersion as a steam vessel of the common plan, of equal pow-
er and tonnage, can carry twelve days' fuel. She will make
about 11 miles per hour. We have received the following de-
scription of the machinery of this vessel from a correspondent:
L Tht, sleamur otillers from ail others in having literally no boil-
er; she has steam generators, in which water in small quanti-
ties is made to drop from an orifice on a heated plate, which
rests upon a stratum of mercury about three inches and a half
thick, which is heated up to the temperature of three or four
hundred degrees by means of a fire underneath. The rest of
the engine is similarto the common low pressure engines, except
that the cold water cistern is kept cool bymeans of pipes of cold
salt water running through it. It is originally filled with fresh
water, so that the evil of using salt water in condensation is
avoided. The fuel burnt is coke and stone coal, and the vessel
will carry sufficient for 50 days' consumption. The vessel steam-
ed the whole of the way from London, and frequently attained
a speed of 11 knots per hour. Such is the construction of this
vessel; and it must be acknowledged that great advantages,
even for short voyages, are obtained by the use of machinery oc-
eupying so little room as this does. lam told, however, that it is
found extremely difficult to keep the joints of the vessel contain-
ing the mercury perfectly tight, and that the effect has been se-
riously to affect the health of the men employed. It appears to
me, however, that some substitute for this volatile and danger-
ous metal might be employed, say Newton's fusible metal, which
melts at 200 degrees, and which is not at all volatile.' "

WASHINGTON, APRIL 23. A. B. Q.

4OM A FLORIDIAN.

ST. AUGUSTINE, APRIL 4, 1838.
In my last I observed that the citizens of East Florida
had been much excited by reports that Gen. JEsUP had en-
tertained a proposition from the hostile Seminoles to close
the war, and permit them to atain the southern portion of
the peninsula. The last maiTbrought us the Intelligencer
of the 15th ult. containing Gen. JESUP'S communication to
the War Department, not only proposing to permit the In-
dians to remain in the country, but condemning the policy
of the Government in attempting to remove them. His
opinions, and his reasons for their adoption, are altogether
so extraordinary that it is not surprising they should cre-
ate excitement, it not indignation, in this country. His
political and moral code of Indian policy, which he has main-
taincd under so many Administrations, I will not notice,
but proceed to his statement of facts. He says: "We have
committed the error of attempting to remove them (the In-
dians,) when they were not in the way of the white inhabi-
tants, and when their lands were not required for agricul-
tural purposes." This statement is wholly gratuitous.
Every resident of East Florida can testify that the Ala-
chua, one of the most populous and best established settle-
ments in Florida, adjoins the Indian line, and that the In-
dians were not only in the way, but continually annoying
their white neighbors by stealing their cattle and other pro-
perty. To assist the military stationed at Fbrt King to
arrest this evil, and protect the whites, OCEOLA was em-
ployed, by consent of the chiefs, to reside at Fort King as
a kind of police constable to flog the marauding Indians
brought in by our soldiers; and even as late as 1835, when
Col. FANNING took command at Fort King, he was forced
to make detachments daily to arrest plundering parties and
protect the whites. These plundering parties often pene-
trated into the country fifty miles north of the line to com-
mit their depredations. That the country was not re-
quired for agricultural purposes." How strange that Gen.
JESUP should hazard such a statement! It was required,
and would have been extensively improved but for the fact
that large claims, which had been confirmed to Arredondo
and others, were within the limits allowed to the Indians,
and the owners placed in the peculiar predicament of see-
ing the Indians occupy the very lands adjudged to them by
Government. Others attempted to improve their lands si-
inilarly situated; but, on complaint of the Indians, the
agent promptly removed them as intruders. Such was the
case of Mr. LAWRENCE, of New York, and others, in 1833.
So much for the premises on which the General's plan is
based. Not the least extraordinary part of his communi-
cation is his proposition to confide once more in the pro-
mises of these Seminoles, whose history is not only distin-
guished by a disregard for all treaty stipulations with our
Government, but for cruelty and perfidy to each other.
When a difference of opinion prevailed among the chiefs
in relation to emigrating in 1835, a council was held, and
a solemn decision made, that any chief or warrior who
chose might emigrate in accordance with the treaty. In
pursuance of this decision, Charley Omartla, and about
one-third of the nation, determined to emigrate, commenced
their preparations, and, while unsuspectingly pursuing
them, he was murdered, and his friends, with few excep-
tions, compelled to remain. And have not these Seminoles
nost fully maintained their character for faithlessness and
treachery ever since Let Gen. JESUP himself be witness.
The campaign closed a year ago; the war was ended; In-
dians would emigrate; came in by hundreds; fed and
clothed at the public expense; a squadron of transport ves-
sels, hired to carry them to their new home, delayed, at an
enormous expense, until all the Indians could be ready to,
sail together; the most frivolous excuses offered for delay,
until the season for campaigning had passed; having re-
tained their arms, recruited, and well clothed, they return
in mass to their hammocks. These are the men who have
endured another campaign, saved their women and chil-
dren, and avoided a general battle, although pursued by an
army over eight thousand strong; five thousand of whom
were mounted when the campaign commenced. Irritated,
but unconquered, what regard would they have for lines,
express conditions," &c. ? If they show game in the face
of eight thousand men, what will they care for a few hun-
dred And if eight thousand could not now force them
to emigrate, when and by what means can Gen. JEsUP's
conditions and penalties be enforced ? Again : if the Ge-
neral's opinion of the country be correct, how are these
Indians to live in such a desert waste, supposing them to
become the most conscientious observers of treaties ? He
says, that will satisfy them," (designating a certain por-
tion of country.) Now, here is something new under the
sun. The Indians were found by our pilgrim fathers oc-
c eu.nvirt. valley and nna taoajtiom after.
iaacirn fL~heir cou ttir. 11.r a^^ }
of the nrcest aic. Thi' s a tact of nalona no-
toriety; and the Seminoles have not been less sagacious
than other aboriginal tribes. When they sold Middle Flo
rida, they reserved the better lands of East Florida; and,
if they now propose to relinquish a part of them, is it not
because they esteem the country called by Gen. JESUP a
wilderness, (not worth the calomel and jalap it will cost to
take possession of it,) better than the lands relinquished ?
They know the country; Gen. JESUP does not. Many
gentlemen who have explored the country pronounce it the
best portion of Florida; some of them, "the garden of
America;" and many are anxious for the termination of
the war, that they may settle there. I am pained to say
that Gen. JESUP's communication abounds in errors of fact
and inference. I do not charge him with want of integrity.
I do believe him pure in his motives. My opinion is un.-
changed as to his honor and bravery. His service in Flo-
rida has been painfully severe-vexed, harassed, disap-
pointed, and mortified, by occurrences to which I will not
here allude: (using an Indian phrase, he has been exceed-
ingly unfortunate in selecting his sense bearers.") The
letter-writing part of his officers (and they are not a few,)
have been filling the country with the most frightful stories


of Florida-deserts, swamps, alligators, musquitoes, Semi-
noles, sickness, and death, so that FLORIDA has indeed
become synonymous with every thing horrible. One of
these letter-writers says he would not give a township in
Illinois or Michigan for all Florida. This same writer
might have known that, even during the present war, the
exports of Florida in one year have been greater by ten-
fold than those of Michigan during the same period. It is
not altogether a rich soil that gives value to Southern lands;
it is their adaptation to cotton and sugar. The Sea island
cotton thrives in light, sandy soil: all Florida will produce
it. Why denounce the country as a barren waste which
is capable of contributing so much to enrich the nation 1
But for the products of the sandy lands of the South, the
commerce of the nation would have languished for years
under its late embarrassment. If Gen. JESUP and his offi-
cers can induce theV ar Department to withdraw the army
from Florida under any temporary arrangement with the
Indians, the People, including the hundreds of unfortunate
families driven from their plantations pennyless, merely es-
caping with their lives, must submit. They have no Gen.
JESUP to importune Government for them.; they are not
letter-writers. Could they be heard, they would ask the
War Department how they know that a campaign cannot
be carried on in Floiida during the summer ? They would
appeal to Gen. JESUP himself, whether he was not continu-
ally moving through the country last summer, in good
health; and whether there was any thing to prevent the
operations of an army? They would tell Mr. POINSETT
that the surveyors of Government lands have been in the
practice of continuing their operations through the sum-
mer; and that they would engage to continue the war this
summer, provided he would direct the enlistment of ten or
fifteen hundred Floridians to serve during the continuance
of the war, (who could be immediately engaged, provided
they were permitted tp nominate their own officers.) Add
to this force the regiment of dragoons now in service, leave
a few regulars to keep up the posts and preserve the pub-
lic property, and with this force they would be answerable
for confining the Indians to their hammocks, where they
could neither raise corn nor gather arrow root to replenish
their stores of provisions, indispensable to the support of
their families next winter. Two thousand good men,
mounted on the horses of the country, which can live on
grass, would be sufficient for this service ; and ten thou-
sand, in such a country, and with such an enemy, could do
no more. Yours, &c. ERIE.

THE RHODE ISLAND ELECTION.


FROM THE PROVIDENCE JOURNAL, APRIL 20.
THE LEGISLATURE.-In the contest of 1836 the Loco-
focos had a majority offorty-one in joint ballot in our Le-
gislature. In 1837 they went over the course without op-
position. In 1838 the Whigs take the field, and have a
-majority of TWENTY-FIVE, at least, in joint ballot. Strength
enough, we opine, to sweep out the stable.
THE WHIG GAIN.-Our opponents cautioned us that
we must not rely upon the August election as any index
of a trial for Governor and Senate. They said they were
not united then, and as Governor Francis was in the field,
and our party was divided, now we must be aware of the
result. All this we very well knew. They were divided
in August.
The only proper comparison is the gubernatorial can-
vass. In 1836, the last trial the Whigs had with Gov.
Francis, Mr. Burges was defeated by a majority of 889
votes. Compare the present with that, and it exhibits a
gain offiteen hundred votes, at least, for our Governor.
Compare the Senatorial ticket, and it exhibits a gain of
eighteen hundred. But we are told even that this is not a
fair comparison, because the Whigs were inactive, and
Mr. Burges was unpopular. Well, then, take the con-
test of 1835, when Governor Knight was the Whig can-
didate. At that time every nerve was strained on both
sides. Governor Knight was the strongest man the Whigs
could bring into the field. He was defeated by a majority
of 102 votes. The majority of Mr. Sprague will not vary
much from 400 over all others, and this shows a gain of
500 votes. Look at the result in any point of view, and
we have accomplished a splendid victory.

TWENTY-FIFTH CONGRESS.
SECOND SESSION.

MONDAY, APRIL 23, 1838.

IN SENATE.
Mr. CLAY, of Kentucky, rose and said, he had for
some time held in his possession, and he would now pre-
sent, certain proceedings and resolutions of a large and
respectable meeting of the citizens of Cleaveland, Ohio,,
opposed to the sub-Treasury bill. They attributed (Mr..
C. said) the present deranged state of the currency and
business of the country to the action of this Government,
and they deprecated in strong but respectful language the
passage of the bill to which he had alluded. They re-
garded the proposed separation of the Government from
the currency and business of the country as wholly un-
justifiable, and utterly repugnant to the nature and genius
of our institutions; and they were desirous that the Gov-
ernment should do something to bring back the state of
prosperity which the Government had lost for itself and
the country.
These proceedings emanated (Mr. C. believed) from the
second town in importance in the State of Ohio, situated
at the outlet of the great canal of that State into Lake
Erie. They.were great friends of the credit system, and
well they might be, because by that system the great work
had been achieved, which was so beneficial and important
to them, and so creditable to the enterprise and energy of
that State.
The bill which they deprecated was now in the other
House, and Mr. C. hoped and believed that it was dead,
dead, dead, and he could not even add that supplication
which usually closed the sentence of our tribunals of jus-
tice on a condemned prisoner, [May the Lord have mercy
upon your soul.] Yet, though he believed it was dead, it
was possible that the President and -the other friends of
the measure might revive it; and it was to meet it, if it
should come up in any shape, that Mr. C. now presented
these resolutions, and asked that they might be printed, and
lie on the table.
The proceedings were accordingly laid on the table, and
ordered to be printed.
The VICE PRESIDENT presented a message from
the President of the United States, with papers relating to
Indian depredations on the property of an individual, inot
heard.)
On motion of Mr. WHITE, referred, and ordered to le
printed.
Mr..CLAY and Mr. KING presented petitions from ci-
tizens of Alabama, having some reference (unheard) to In-
dian reservations. Referred.
Mr. WRIGHT, from the Committee on Finance, report-
ed two several bills to remit to a Philadelphia Railroad
Company certain duties on railroad iron, and to authorize
certain individuals to import, duty free, two iron steam-
boats. Severally read, and ordered to a second reading.
Mr. KING made an unfavorable report, which was
agreed to, on the remonstrance against the separation of
Delaware into two collection districts.
The petition of George Thompson, of Louisiana, was
rejected.
Mr. NORVELL, on leave, introduced a bill making
appropriations for the completion of certain roads in Mi-
chigan;
And Mr. KING, a bill for the benefit of the Selma and
Tennessee Railroad Company : severally read twice and
referred.
Several bills from the House were read twice, and re-
ferred.
NOTES OF THE U. S. BANK.
The Senate took up, on its third reading, the bill to pro-
hibit the issuing and circulation of the notes of the late
Bank of the U. S.
Mr. BUCHANAN and Mr. CLAY, of Kentucky, oc-
cupied the rest of the day in an earnest debate on this sub-
ject, (to be published hereafter.)
The bill was passed by the following vote:
YEAS-Messrs. Allen, Benton, Brown, Buchanan,
Calhoun, Clay, of Alabama, Cuthbert, Fulton, Grundy,
Hubbard, Linn, Lumpkin, Lyon, Morris, Niles, Norvell,
Pierce, Rives, Roane, Robinson, Ruggles, Smith, of Con.,

den, Davis, King, Merrick, Nicholas, Prentiss, Preston,

TREASURY NOTES.
On motion of Mr. CAMBRELENG, from the Commit-
tee of Ways and Means, the Committee of the Whole
were discharged from the bill heretofore reported to author-
ize the issue of $10,000,000 in Treasury notes; as also
from the bill reported, supplementary to the act of October
last, authorizing the issue of $10,000,000 in Treasury
notes; and these bills were recommitted to the Committee
of Ways and Means. And thereupon,
Mr. CAMBRELENG, from the Committee of Ways
and Means, reported a new bill in the following words:
A BILL to carry into effect an act approved the 12th day
of October, 1837, to authorize the issuing of Treasury
notes."
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives


of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
That the Secretary of the Treasury, with the approbation
of the President of the United States, is hereby authorized
to cause Treasury notes to be issued, according to the pro-
visions of an act entitled "An act to authorize the issuing
of Treasury notes," approved the twelfth day of October
last, in place of such notes as have been, or may be, issued
under the authority of the act aforesaid, and which have
been, or may hereafter be, paid into the Treasury and can-
celled.
This bill was twice read, and committed to the Commit-
tee of the Whole House on the state of the Union.
MEXICAN RELATIONS.
The CHAIR laid before the House the following:
To the House of Representatives of the United States:
In compliance with the resolution of the House of Rep-
resentatives of the 16th instant, relative to an attack on
the steamboat Columbia, in the Gulf of Mexico, by a Mex-
ican armed vessel, I transmit a report from the Secretary of
State, to whom the resolution was referred.
M. VAN BUREN.
WASHINGTON, APRIL 23, 1838.
Tolhe President of the United States :
The Secretary of State, to whom was referred a resolu-
tion of the House of Representatives of the 16th instant,
requesting the President to communicate to that House, if
not incompatible with the public interest, any information
he may have received, officially or otherwise, relating to an_
attack by a Mexican armed vessel upon the steamboat Co-
lumbia, bearing the flag of the United States, in the Gulf
of Mexico, has the honor to report that no information on
this subject (except through the newspapers) has been re-
ceived at this Department.
Respectfully submitted. JOHN FORSYTH.
DEPARTMENT OF STATE, WASHINGTON, APRIL 23, 1838.
Mr. ADAMS moved to refer it to the Committee on
Foreign Affairs, with instructions to report upon the sub-
ject forthwith. It was now five months since the Presi-
dent of the United States recommended war against Mex-
ico, and nothing had yet been heard from the committee
on the subject.
:Mr. HOWARD explained that the reason of this de-
lay was, -that negotiations were pending on this very sub-
ject: and the longer the committee~delayed reporting, the
stronger was the probability of an amicable arrangement
of the affairs between the two nations.
Mr. ADAMS said he had thought that all negotiations

OUR RELATIONS WITH MEXICO.

We had occasion, a few days ago, to allude
to the undue -importance given to a late inci-
dent occurring in the Gulf of Mexico, in which
a steam-vessel, coming out of a Texian port,
was attempted to be detained for examination
by a Mexican blockading squadron, which inci-
dent had been represented in debate in the Se-
nate of the United States as a good cause of
war against Mexico; and we had reference,
NIWl, to the language held upon the subject in
some of the New Orleans newspapers that had
then just reached us. The report of the debate
in the Senate was before our readers, and sub-
ject, as well as our comment, to their judgment.
But the comments of the New Orleans press on
the affair, to which, in our remarks, we more
particularly referred, were not before them. It
has become necessary, in justification of our
having treated so grave a topic for a moment with
something like levity, to present to our readers a
sample of those comments; for which purpose
we select the following article from the Bee, a
New Orleans journal referred to'in the Senate
debate :
FROM THE NEW ORLEANS BEE, MARCH 29.
OUTRAGE UPON THE AMERICAN FLAG.-If any fact were
wanting to demonstrate conclusively the imbecility, cow..
ardice, and ferocity of the Mexican character, the ren-
counter related in yesterday's paper, between the steam-
ship Columbia and the Mexican ship and brig, would
serve to stamp it with all the most ignoble and degrading
features. These miscreants, not less savage than dastard,
and wholly regardless of the rights of nations, dare to at-
tack, in the most unprovoked and wanton manner, a-ves-
sel in the peaceful pursuit of her voyage from one port to
another; chase her with fury, fire into her repeatedly, in
contempt of the national colors, which they were bound
to respect; and, finally, when upon the point of boarding
her, these gallant fellows became so inordinately terrified
at the sudden escape of steam, and the loud noise it occa-
sions, that they fell flat upon their faces, and retired with
most ludicrous celerity. Truly, there is something so
supremely ludicrous in the conduct of these bullying pol-
troons, who are frightened at smoke, that if it were not
for the gratuitous outrage offered to the American flag, we
would be tempted to laugh at the silly braggarts and their
stupid bravado. But this gross and glaring violation of
the rights of neutrality, however contemptible in practice,
is far too serious in principle to be lightly disregarded, and
ample expiation should be required for an act which must
be considered as an atrocious insult to the national honor.
The fact is, that for some time past the rascally Mexi-
cans have been perpetrating a series of petty injuries, for
which atonement should have been demanded. The re-
fusal of their Government to liquidate the many claims
possessed by this country against them-its neglect even
to examine the greater part of these claims-the Gorostiza
pamphlet, with all its vile calumnies against the Adminis-
tration and the national character, and the contumely, op-
pression, and insult, suffered by American ministers and
residents in different towns in Mexico, constitute a mass
of grievances which render reparation the imperative duty
of the American Government. Mexico, all impotent and
despicable as she is, has not been able to forgive the
United States for the sympathy so strikingly manifested
in favor of Texian independence; and has attempted,
with her usual spirit of dastard vindictiveness, to avenge
herself for the victory-at San Jacinto, which she knows
was in a great measure attributable to American bravery.
But we certainly did not imagine that her ignorance or
audacity would ever have led her in the open assault of an
unarmed American vessel. We did not sufficiently calcu-
late upon the reckless presumption -of a Government,
which,. j~istxking ca 1 s dignity and a ioe o-f peace fo
^- n.wnT~ ...i., d nthat such an outrage would be permitted
Switch impunityy" We fancy, liowever, that Mexico wil
have reason to repent her temerity, and that the armed
vessels of Uncle Sam will ring such a knell into the ear:
of her astounded myrmidons, and so lash them into obe
dience, that, like a mutinous slave, whose rebellion has
been promptly checked and remorselessly punished, shi
will learn to return, amid cringing and supplication, to thb
observance of her duties.
Upon this burst of passion, having so little o
the character of deliberation and judgment, ap
pearing to receive countenance on the floor o
so dignified a body as the Senate, we threw ou
at the moment our few and hasty remarks, re
serving a more grave consideration for another
opportunity, which we now avail ourselves of.
These remarks of ours have been made the
subject of some strictures by "an occasion
correspondent" of the Globe, whom, from the
company he is found in, we shall take the liber.


ty to consider as representing the views of the
Executive, or at least of the Secretary of State,
on this occasion, and as being therefore entitled
to notice. The following passage contains the
gist of his article:
"Comment can scarcely be necessary upon the above
'precious morceau; its anti-American feeling is portrayed
Sin every line, and in every word. It is no party question,
where, according to the code of some politicians, false-
hoods may be invented, and.frauds perpetrated; all be-
'ing fair with them in politics; but the deliberate purpose
Sof thwarting the Government of the United States in its
'just determination of obtaining redress for its insulted and
injured citizens, for the manifold wrongs perpetrated up-
on them by a viper which this country had taken to its
bosom, and warmed into existence. The obligations of
treaties for the protection of the persons and property of
American citizens upon the high seas, we may say in our
own seas, are treated with equal contempt by the Mexican
S* Navy and their friends in Washington. The one party
' can play the pirate under color of a commission, the other
Stands ready to justify the act in a playful and jesting
Smood."
There is one grain of sense at least in this ti-
rade, viz. the statement that this is no party
'question; added to which, if the writer had
borne in mind that it is no question for mere
rant and bombast, he would perhaps have substi-
tuted argument for his vituperation, and, instead
of indulging in empty declamation against those
who are wickedly bent upon thwarting the
Government of the United States in its just pur-
pose," &c. would have shown that this attempt
to detain on her way one of our merchant ves-
sels by a Mexican cruizer was cause of war
against that country-which is the question at
issue between him and us.

they desire to see quieted by the interposition,
in any way, of the power of this Government.
The motives of this class no one will be dispos-
ed to thir.k very unkindly of. A third class con-
sists of tliose who have embarked in specula-
tions in tle unseated lands in Texas, and have
a deep concern in realizing for them that value
which they are expected to bear in the event of
the annexation of that territory to the United
States, or the acknowledgment of its independ-
ence by MIexico. The desire of these persons to
bring thei( lands to a profitable market is as na-
tural as the very obvious interest they have in
doing so. But neither of these classes, nor all
of them put together, must be allowed to influ-
ence the counsels of this Government so as to
counteract the general interest which the whole
People of .he United States undoubtedly has in
the abstinence from foreign wars, with their vi-
ces, expers,es, and miseries, and in the preser-
vation of a!n open and profitable commercial in-
tercourse 'ith all the world.
If these interests were interests within the
United States, their purely personal character
would notl prevent their being entitled to the
care of tht Government, and to an influence
over the conduct of its relations with Mexico.
But, such as they are, they constitute no ground
of action fir Congress or the Executive, and
ought to halve no influence whatever in the de-
liberations o.f either upon the course which the
public intc'est and the national character en-
joirts upon this Government in regard to Mexico.
There is, however, a class of individuals in
the United States, we readily admit, who have
a right to expect that their personal interests
shall be regarded, in the consideration of our
relations wi-h Mexico. We refer to those per-
sons who hAve well-founded claims, arising out
of their chaLracter of citizens of the United
States, to indemnity for spoliations on the high
seas or with n the Territories of Mexico. Their
claims have, been made the subject of corres-
pondence between the two Governments, which
is not yet wholly interrupted. These claimants,
the only citizens whose personal interest is en-
titled to be considered, must, of all others, most
deprecate a quarrel with Mexico; for, in those
national qua'rels which end in a resort to arms,
it seldom ha )pens but, before war ends, the ori-
ginal cause of the quarrel is lost sight of, and,
without muc 1 regard to it, a peace is gladly
patched up, after the war has impoverished both
countries, aid benefited only a host of con-
traqtors and ffice-holders in each who have had
nothing to i with fighting the battle.
The par lar interests of our citizens, there-
fore, as wei as the national interests of com-
merce, agricIlture, and manufactures universal-
ly, in the pr sent juncture of our affairs with
Mexico, dem nd peace, and negotiation for the
adjustment of existing differences. This is the

It is excellent
To have giant's strength, but it is tyrannous
To use it lke a giant."

By way of showing what is thought of the
subject of thetbove article in other disinterested
quarters, we iopy the following notices of it, to
which, if we -ad room, we might add several
others:
FROX THE NEW JERSEY FREDONIAN.
In the Senate,on the 11th instant, there was some con-
versation in relaton to our affairs with Mexico; and there
appeared to be a ery prevalent disposition on the part of
the Administratin Senators to proceed, at once, to some
decisive steps w~th that Government. The favorers of
the scheme to quite Texas to the United States will, of
course, prompt a quarrel with Mexico. But the country
will not bear a wrr for such causes as we have of complaint
against that Government. It is at most but a question of
dollars and cents, whether or not Mexico shall be made

fired into, and finally runs out of reach, and gets clear.
And now, forsooth, the country is ringing with the outcry
of the Mexican enormity," shameful violation of the
American flag," &c. Was there ever any thing more ut-
terly sen-eless The Mexicans have done nothing in the
case worthy even of notice-much less of complaint. If
the boat had been boarded, and, having nothing but Ame-
rican property on board, had been detained or otherwise
maltreated, we would have been among the foremost to de-
mand punishment for the offenders; for we know the
Mexicans to be great miscreants; but, under such circum-
stances as those about which all the noise is made, we will
not join in the outcry. We think it much more likely
that this same boat was loaded with Texian property, that
the Mexicans had the right to capture, by the law of na-
tions; but whether that was so or not, there can be no
doubt of their right to examine a vessel coming out of a
blockaded port-certainly a right to see her papers. How
were they otherwise to know but she is a Texian vessel ?
Her flag was hardly primafacie evidence of nationality,
for flags are used as is most convenient in such cases. The
steamboat, however, luckily got off without a visit from
the squadron, and her owners and master ought to think
themselves well off that she did so. They have no right
to call for any clamor from the country on the subject.

ISAAC H. BRONSON, now Representative in
Congress from Jefferson county, was appointed
Judge of the 5th Circuit on the last day of the
late session of the Legislature of the State of
NEW YORK.

HORTICULTURAL.-Having lately noticed, in
our principal market, very fine PARSNIPS, the
produce of this vicinage, we invite the attention
of the growers thereof, and that of our horticul-
tural friends generally, to the following para-
graph, copied from a late English paper:
Parsnip Wine.-Wine made of Parsnip-root approaches
nearer to the Malmsey of Madeira and the Canaries than
any other wine: it is made with little expense or trouble,
and only requires to be kept a few years to be made as
agreeable to the palate as it is wholesome to the body. To
every 4 lbs. of parsnips, clear and quartered, put one gal-
lon of water; boil them till they are quite tender; drain
them through a sieve, but do not bruise them, as no reme-
dy would clear them afterwards. Pour the liquor into a
tub, and to each gallon add 3 lbs. of loaf sugar, and half
an ounce of crude tartar. When cooled to the tempera-
ture of 75 degrees, put in a little new yeast; let it stand
four days in a warm room; then turn it. The mixture
should, if possible, be fermented in a temperature of 60
degrees. September and March are the proper seasons
for making the wine. When the fermentation has sub-
sided, bung down the cask, and let the wine stand at least
twelve months before bottling.

New York Legislature.-The Legislature of
New York closed its session of one hundred
and seven days, at 12 o'clock on Wednesday
night. The Albany Evening Journal gives the
following summary view of the results of this
important session :
This has been a laborious and eventful session. On no
former occasion have we witnessed, on the part of mem-
bers, so much of diligence and industry. No former
House of Assembly has been so many hours in session.
For the last four weeks, the House has held two, and for
the last week three daily sessions.
Nor has the session been less fruitful in the results of
its deliberations On no former occasion has more been
done to advance the interests of the People, or so much to
develop the resources of the State. A new impulse has
been given to the cause of internal improvement-an im-
pulse quickened and invigorated by the triumphant rcp rt
of Mr. Ruggles. The speedy enlargement of the Erie
canal is authorized, for which purpose $4,000,000 is ap-
propriated. The construction of the New York and Erie
rail-road is insured, a loan of $3,000,000 having been
made to the company. The State, by liberal loans to the
Catskill and Canajoharie, the Atburn and Syracuse, and
the Ithaca and Owego rail-roads, has also insured the
completion of those works. These appropriations and
loans, for works of improvement, amount in the aggregate
to $7,750,00Q0. The Legislature has also authorized the
survey of several canal and rail-road routes.

POSTSCRIPT.
NEW YORK, APRIL 22.
The George Washington packet-ship from
Liverpool 26th ult. is in. She has 194,000
sterling in specie on board. We learn now
that the Bank of England is seriously'concern-
ed in making the exportation of specie, so as to
right the rates of exchange between New York
and London, and to restore credit and confi-
dence, and, of course, business again, to this
country, in order that the Americans may once
more begin the importation of British manufac-
tures. In all nearly $10,000,000 are coming,
five millions consigned to-Prime, Ward & King,
part of it for the Canadas, but more for us, and
of the five millions nearly a million and a half
are froin the Rothschilds, the rest from Liver-
pool merchants, &c. much of which, I suppose,
is to go to the United States Bank in Phila-
delphia.
The policy of the Bank of England creates
much discussion in the British papers, the Lon-
don Times being almost raving about it. The
measure, however, is in general considered a
salutary measure, and, what is very important to
us, creates no alarm in England. The rates of
Exchange at Hamburg and at Paris on London
continued to be decidedly favorable to London,
while the rate of Exchange at London on New
York was nearly 6 per cent. against England.
In the face of these exportations of specie, it is
very gratifying to see the general firmness of the
Cotton market, which, at Liverpool, Saturday,
the 24th, though the sales during the week had
been great, declined but id in the lower quali-
ties, the better being without change.
I find in the English papers no,political news
of importance. Excitement respecting the Ca-
nadas was quite over. Speculation, however,
was active upon the merit and expenses of
Lord Durham's mission. From the Continent
there is nothing later.
No steam packet yet! The Great Western
ship (not the Sirius due now) is advertised to
sail from Bristol 7th April, which stows with
ease, says the advertisement, sufficient toal for
25 days' steaming. These steam-ships, I see,
intend to make something as mail-boats, by
charging one shilling sterling on each letter, &c.
Holland and Belgium, it is said, are about to
be reconciled, the King of Holland having con-
sented to accept the 24 articles agreed to in
1831.

and Roanoke cars to Halifax, N. C. At Halifax, they will take
the Wilmington and Raleigh railroad line of post-coaches, at 4
o'clock same day, and proceed to Wilmington, N. C.; or, by
taking the Merchants' Accommodation Line, they may proceed
to Raleigh and Greensborough, when they will meet the South-
western or Piedmont Line, as well as the Line, via Salem,
Wythe court-house, &c., to Nashville, Tennessee. The steam-
boat Fox runs to and from Plymouth and' Edenton, N. C., in
connexion with the line.
1 GOING NORTH.
Leave Charleston on Sundays and Tuesdays, at 5 P. M.;
breakfast the next morning at Wilmington. Leave Wilmington
on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and, by railroad and
coaches, arrive at Halifax on the evenings of the next days.
Sleep at Halifax, and the next morning proceed, by the Ports-
mouth and Roanoke railroad, to Portsmouth, where they will be
taken, on Sundays and Wednesdays, by the ALABAMA, for Bal-
timore, at half past 3 P. M., and on Fridays by the COLUMBIA
for Washington, at 3 P. M.
This line being now complete, offers to the traveller a route
which, for speed, safety, comfort, and economy, is not equalled;
for, while it avoids the dangers of the ocean, it is unattended
with the fatigue consequent upon an altogether inland route,
where there is necessarily much night travelling.
The Chesapeake Bay boats, and the one from Wilmington to
Charleston, are unsurpassed for elegance and speed. The post-
coaches, horses, and drivers, are of the best, and the Poxtsmouth
and Roanoke-Railroad Company assure the Public that every
means are exerted, regardless of expense, to keep their road
in good order; and, if well-chosen and experienced agents and
engineers, acting under the most rigid written instructions, can
be a guaranty to safety, then it may be confidently relied on.

He was met near Germantown with all the preparations for a
long trip-when questioned said he was on his way to the
neighborhood of Mr. David James', near Ariss Bockner's, Esq.,
of Loudoun county. He had been hired one year to Mr. H.
Barren, at Greenwich; he was also hired one year to Mr.
Austin Green, late of Culpeper county, where he has made many
acquaintances; but it is apprehended that he was making for
the District of Columbia, and probably on to the North. The
above reward will be given if taken out of the State and deli-
vered to the Subscriber near Morgansburg, Fauquier county,

j AYS' LINIMENT.-No Fictleo .-This extraor-
dinary chemical composition, the resuIt of science and
the invention of a celebrated medical man, tlie introduction of
which to the Public was invested with the sol mnity of a death-
bed bequest, has since gained a reputation unparalleled, fully
sustaining the correctness of the lamented h )r. Gridley's last
confession, that he dared not die without giving to posterity
the benefit of his knowledge on this subject, and he therefore
bequeathed to his friend and attendant, Solon oi Hays, the se-
cret of his discovery.
It is now used in the principal hospitals, and the private prac-
tice in our country, first and most certainly fdr the cure of the
Piles, and also so extensively and effectually'as to baffle credu-
lity, unless where its effects are witnessed. zExternally in the
following complaints :
For Dropsy.-Creating extraordinary absoption at once.
All Swellings.-Reducing them in a few hours.
Rheumatism.-Acute or Chronic, giving q ick ease.
Sore Throat.-By cancers, ulcers or colds.,
Croup, and Whooping Cough.-Externa ly, and over the
chest.
All bruises, Sprains, and Burns, curing I" i w hours.*
Sores and Ulcers.--Whether fresh or lord ending, and fever
sores.
Its operations upon adults and. children i '- cing rheumatic
swellings, and loosening coughs and tightly f the chest by
relaxation of the parts, has been surprising Isyond conception.
The common remark of those who have used it in the Piles is,
It acts like a charm."
THE PILES.-The price $1 is refunded to any person who
will use a bottle of Hays' Liniment for the Piles,and return the
empty bottle without being cured. These ar*e the positive orders
of the proprietor to the Agents; and out of many thousands
sold, not one has been unsuccessful.

rf O CLAIlMANT '.-FIRANCIS A. DICKINS, of the
city of Washington, having resigned the appointment
held by him for several years in the Treasury and War Depart-
ments, has undertaken the agency of claims before Congress,
and other branches of the Government, including commission-
ers under treaties, and the various public offices; also, the pro-
curing of patents for public lands, prosecuting claims for servi-
ces in the Revolution, and for Navy pensions, and generally
such other business as may require the aid of an agent at Wash-
ington. He will likewise attend to the prosecution of bounty
land claims upon the State of Virginia, and the recovery of
lands in Ohio which have been sold for taxes.
Persons having, or supposing themselves to have claims, will,
on transmitting a statement of the facts, be advised of the pro-
per course of proceeding. His charge will be moderate, de-
pending upon the amount of the claim and the extent of the
service.
He is also agent for the American Life Insurance and Trust
Company, which has a capital of two millions of dollars paid in,

TlNIFTY DOLLARS REWARD.-Eloped from my
J. residence ELOIZA, a young negress of ordinary stature
and size, but strongly made, about 22 years old, color of a chest-
nut or brown, long thick woolly hair, which is commonly neat-
ly combed, parted before, and tucked with combs. Her cloth-
ing consists of several calico frocks, white cotton aprons and
collars, &c. and a black bombasin dress. She has had from
her birth a very singular mark, resembling the dashing on the
skin of coffee grounds or some black substance. This mark,
to the best of my recollection, commences on the neck or collar
bone, and covers part of her breasts, body, and limbs, and when
her neck anAl arms are uncovered is very perceptible. I un-
derstand that she calls herself Louisa, and has been frequently
seen east and south of the Capitol square, and harbored by ill-
disposed persons of every complexion for her services, where
by diligent search she may be found, unless she has hired her-
self elsewhere as a cook or house servant. I will give the
above reward if caught in the District of Columbia and deliver-
ed to me, or if out of the District I will give an additional sum
of ten dollars for every ten miles beyond the District line in any
direction, provided the distance does not exceed fifty miles, and
if beyond that distance one hundred dollars, and secured so
that I get her again, in case it should not be convenient to deo
f liver her as aforesaid. WM. ROBINSON,
