Mr. R. THOMPSON : Dear Sir : About the 15th of last month I
took a severe cold, which so affected my entire system as to dis-
qualify me for business. In this condition I began taking your Life
Preserver, one half bottle of which has entirely restored me to
my usual health ; and, in my opinion, theme is not a doubt of its
efficacy in such cases. EDWARD SIMMS,
FEB. 15th, 1841. Wine Merchant.
Mr. R. THOMPSON: Dear Sir: About the 24th of last month I
was again lafd up with an alarming cold, which seated itself in
my head, and although I had realized, on a former occasion, the
power and efficacy of your Life Preserver, I became, on account
of the au-ate pain 1 felt, seriously alarmed ; 1 however began tak-
ing itas I did on the former occasion, and I lhad not taken three
table spoonfuls, before the same general perspiralion came on.
and, at the same time, a collection of matter which had formed in
my head bursted, and ran freely out at my ears. It has-been
three days since this took place, and 1 am now entirely restored
to my health. Thus have I twice, in a few months, been restored
to health, in very critical cases of culd,by yoir invaluable medicine.

Mr. R. THOMPSON : Dear Sir : I was ah eyewitness to the
case of Abel D. Warfield, and know it to have been a very
acute affliction, but it yielded to your Life Preserver in an aston-
ishingly short time, and I do consider it a valuable medicine for
the cure of the most obstinate colds, and also a saver'of sa poor
man's time and of his health, and 1 make use of nothing else

RANDJEAN'S COMPOSITIONS FOR THE
G HAIR .-Not unfrequentlyhave we had reason rtocommend
to public notice the talents and skill of M. Auguste Grandjean, of
No. 1, Barclay street. His treatise on the Hair is a production
both learned and eloquent; it shows that lie has studied deeply,
and that he has full ability satisfactorily to make known the result
of his investigations. It is an ohld adage, the proof of the pud-
ding is in the eating ;" on this principle, the best mode of testing
the truth of M. Grandjean's theories is to make trial of the pre-
paration which he so ably recommends. Experiment, it can be
averred, has already, in many instances, proved the virtues ofthe
Compositions to which wo refer, and we feel confident that all
future experimentwill butserveto -. -ti "r ;r .ir .. 1 r- .1-..n.
The preparation known as "( ,i I "I1. ." 1' .,
been so long a favorite, that it is almost useless to praise it; but
the "Eau Lustrale" is a recent invention, and deman-s that faith-
ful notice to which its merits aspire. It cleanses, and at the same
time beautifies the hair, giving it a rich curl and an exquisite gloss.
One of its chiefproperties (and this will recommend it especially
to the ladies) is, that it keeps the hair safely in whatever style it
may be dressed, resisting both motion and moisture. Thus much
have we thought proper to say, but if we were to ge on writing for
a month, we could not present such.convincing arguments in favor
of the Compositions as the use of them would speedily furnish.-

L 1 "Evermay," the residence of the late Lewis Grant
Davidson, situated on the extreme right of the Heights of George-
town, and now tenanted by Captain John Ma-on, jr. The dwel-
ling-house comprises every advantage of structure and position
most desirable in a private residence. It is substantially built of
brick, is two stories high, with neatly finished garrets, and has
four large rooms on eactih floor, separated by a central and spa-
cious passage, running north and south, the whole length of the
house, ,ogether with wing for kitchen, servants' rooms, pantry,
&c.; stables, carriage-house, cow-shed, dairy, gardener's house,
and other offices, all of brick, are attached. The lht covers an
area of twenty acres and more, which is now utinder fine cultiva-
tion, as garden, orchard, grass fields, and woodland. The house
faces the south, and is located on a lofty eminence, commanding
a panorama of the extensive and beautiful prospect in front, while
it embraces in the rear a delightful northern view, of which the
entire range of the Heights west is, perhaps, deprived. That
portionof the grounds which lies immediately before the dwel-
ling forms a slope of a natural terrace not only very agreeable to
the eye and susceptible of the highest embellishment, but, on ac-
count of the fertility of the soil and the excellent exposure, ad-
mi ably adapted to horticultural purposes, to which it has for a
series of years been very profitably applied under the manage-
ment of professional gardeners. The proximity of this situation
to the metropolis, and its ample accommodations, combining all the
comf')rts of a rural seat, with the facilities of a town residence,
(the churches, schools, markets, and other resorts of business be-
,ne at a convenient distance,) present a rare opportunity to For-
eign Ministers, Members of the Cabinet or of Congress to secure
ain elegant and commodious abode upon satisfactory teims.
To strangers, with whom economy may be an inducement, and
who may not be aware of the fact, it is respectfully suggested
that the comparative cheapness of rents in Georgetown is very
important and well worthy of their attention.
Possession will be given on the first day of April next ensuing.
For further information inquire of the proprietor, at the western
corner of Gay and Montgomery streets, Georgetown, D. C.

TO THE EDITORS.
I send you what in England, where they pay a
poet laureate for doing these things, would be call-
ed a Coronation Ode ; it therefore may probably be
ailed an Inauguration Ode. Perhaps a critical
reader may discover some resemblances in this pro-
duction to Dryden's Alexander's Feast, and a
comparison of the two may probably strengthen
the opinion. This, however, only tends to prove
that great wits will occasionally jump at the same
'Twas at the nation's fete for Victory won
By gallant HARRISON:
Aloft in simple state
The patriot hero sate
On his more than regal throne:
His fellow-citizens were plae'd around,
Their hearts with joy andi pleasure bound:
S(So should success in Freedom's cause be crown'd.)
Wisdom and valor by his side,
In front, in many a rank extended wide,
The flower of youth and beauty's pride.
Happy, happy, happy day !
None but the brave, none but the brave,
None but the brave the free obey.
*Columbia's Genius from on high
Lean'd forward to inquire:
She saw, and struck the sounding lyre-
The loud huzzas ascend the skies,
And heart-felt joys inspire.
The song began with WASHINOTON,
Columbia's ever-honor'd son,
(Who finished well all he begun i)
Heaven's choicest virtues were on him bestow'd.
Sublime in Victory's ranks he rode;
When on his country's foes he press'd,
And all her flagrant wrongs redress'd;
Defiance to the oppressors hurl'd,
And made his country free-the wonderofthe world!
The listening crowd admire the lofty sound ;
GEORGOE WASHINGTON they shout around-
GEORUIE WASHINGTON! the echoing hills rebound:
With ravigh'd ears
Each t Loco hears;
Appears quite big,
Affects the Whig !
And seems to cry out-shares.
The praise of ADAMS then the Genius sweetly sung;
Of ADAMS ever ready, ever strong
In freedom's cause. He comes, he comes!
Sound the trumpets, beat the drums.
With quiet manly grace
He shows his honest face.
Now give the clarion's breath-he comes, he comes! I
To JEFFERSON a strain,
The muse did next ordain;
The $ Declaration is a treasure,
Its doctrines are the patriot's pleasure.
Rich the treasure,
Great the pleasure;
Long may its influence remain.
Pleas'd with the sound, the WH:os grew vain,
Fought all their battles o'er again,
And thrice they routed all their foes from Georgia to
The Genius saw th' emotion rise,
The glowing cheeks, the ardent eyes;
And while the WHIGS their foes defied,
A varied soothing strain she tried.
She called on History's muss
Composure to infuse.
S She sung of MADISON, the good,
Called to the chair of State,
His country's foes all fallen, fallen
'Twas his to regulate
The laws, which since have stood,
And serv'd us in the hour of need ;
To MADISON Fame has decreed
A deathless name, (though cold he lies,)
And ranks him 'mongst the good and wise.
With downcast look each joyless Loco sate,
Revolving in his alter'd soul
The various turns of chance below ;
Wondering how far the ball would roll,
Which laid his prospects low.
The mirthful Genius smil'd to see
The Locus' sad perplexity ;
She strove a kindred sound to move,
Which even Locos should approve.
And softly sweet in varied measure,
In MoNROE's praise she sung with pleasure.
War he had known, its toil and trouble;
Henor he'd found an empty bubble ;
Never ending, still beginning,
All lasting hopes and joys destroying,
But a good name was worth his winning,
His country's praise was worth enjoying.

From his chair he looks around.

See Intolerance arise:

See the mandates they bear,
And the passions that flash from their eyes!
Behold a numerous band,

Who unreveng'd remain
Yet in grief to complain :

MASSACHUSETTS SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24.
The following case was decided on Monday:
BETSEY LEE, administratrix, vs. EDWARD THORNDIKE, ad-
ministrator. This was an action brought to recover a part of
certain money alleged to have been received by the defend-
ant under an award of the Commissioners appointed pursu-
ant to the act of Congress to carry into effect the treaty be-
tween the United States and France, of July 4,1831. The
plaintiff alleged that the Commissioners,in making their award
in the case of the schooner Two Friends, Lee, master, had,
by mistake, awarded the entire alaount allowed for the said
schooner and the freight thereof to the defendant, as admin-
istrator of the estate of Henry Thorndike, whereas one-third
of the said amount should have been awarded to the plaintiff,
as administratrix of Larkin T. Lee; and it was to recover
this one-third of the sum allowed for thesaid vessel and freight
that this action was brought.
The principal point in the defence was, that evidence could
not be introduced to contradict the award of the Commission-
era, or to show that a mistake was made In the same, on the
ground that they were a judicial tribunal, and their award a
judicial act, and on matters within their jurisdiction, and that
it was conclusive upon all interested.
There were also several objections tocertain depositions of-
fered by the plaintiff.
Judge PUTNAM delivered the opinion of the Court to theef-
fect that the plaintiff must recover. The proceedings of 'the
Commissioners were, in some respects, conclusive. But it
was not their province to decide between the conflicting rights
of parties as between themselves. They vere simply toward
such amounts as seemed to them to be due on each claim ;
and this must be distributed by the claimants themse-lves. If
any wrong was done in this distribution, the parties aggriev-
ed could call in the aid of the tribunals of justice. Io this
case the defendant's intestate had received more than his
share of the indemnity of the Two Friends. There was no
possible reason why he should not refund it to the rightful
The other objections were also overruled, and judgment
rendered on the verdict for the plaintiff.-Daily Advertiser.

TO THE HONORABLE JOHN BELL
Secretary of War.
WASHINGTON, MARCH 24, 1841.
Sit: Two opinions are before you as to the best means of
settling the war in Florida: the one advocating continuous,
unceasing, unmitigated, and exterminating war; the other,
the employment of messengers of peace, at least as a first
movement. I proceed now, as promised in my last, to discuss
the abstract merits of those two opinions.
I am aware, sir, that the same means are not suited to the
accomplishment of the same ends in all things. Water is
understood to be, as a common agent, the extinguisher of
fire, and yet water is a chief agent in producing volcanic and
fiery eruptions. Our business is not, however, with matter
as matter, or with the affinities of matter, or with its proper-
ties. Itis with thinking beings-intelligent beings-with men,
sir, who are like ourselves. For, whatever may be the opin-
ion of some that Indians are not men, (and from the treat-
ment they have received, we are borne out in the conclusion
that they are considered by some, at least, as not within the
pale of human beings, and, therefore, not entitled to human
treatment, or human sympathies,) I shall so consider them,
and I believe the great mass of mankind will agree that they
should be so considered. Well, then, Indians being men, we
have but to appeal to our own consciousness, and ask, what
means are those which operate most effectually to allay our
excitements, and subdue our rage 1 Will power, moulded
into the form of oppression, thus operate I Let the spirits of
the illustrious dead, who in 1776 resisted power thus fashion-
ed, and resisted still, onward through a bloody war of seven
years, answer. Will affronts and insults'l Never. Will
force-overwhelming force Ah, yes, sir, that may con-
quer, but even that cannot subdue. It may enslave, but
ca ever make a friend. It may exterminate-annihilate.
I admit this. But I say it can do this only when it can com-
mand a field for its action, aud a place for a tomb for its vic-
tims. Can that place be found in Florida? or in those re-
treats where the Seminole ambuscades himself'? Is thereany
place there forforce, overwhelming fore to stand upen 1Any
fulcrum upon which to rest the engines of its power' ?No,
sir, there is not; or, if there is, the science, and skill, and
research of SCOTT, and GAtiNFs, and CLINCH, have not, with
the aid of others who have succeeded or preceded them, found
it out, even to this hour, though so many years have been con-
sumed in looking for it. But, sir, 1 will suppose these Semi-
noles to be accessible to our arms. Which of the two modes
of restoring peace between them and us would be most likely
to prevail I Even in this view of the subject, the peaceful
method which I advocate would be the most certain to sub-
due; or, if it were easier tI shoot them down till the last man
was made to bite the dust, in what age of the world would
the murderous resort-be adopted, and the peaceful, as a first
step, rejected' Humanity, Christianity, sir, with a voice
that may be heard over the length and breadth of the lant,
answers "NOT IN TitS-NOT IN THIS," No, thank God!
The age of barbarism is gone by with us, and the language
" Blessed are the peacemakers," &c. falls like heavenly ac-
cents, as they are, upon our years. And, sir, if peaceful re-
medies are not the most certain to accomplish the ends of
peace, why have they been made the themes of fable '1 Why
mtoade to enrich the sacred oracles'? Why have they been
impressed upon the constitution and temperaments of beasts,
as well as men 'I Of fable, did I say Yes, sir, fable. Your
correspondent will find in /Esop, a book fraught wilh wisdom,
that a contest once arose between two of the natural elements,
and the question was, which could soonest dispossess the tra-
veller of his cloak. Force, in the form of storm, and hurri-
cane, and tempest, opened the contest: but it only served to
make the traveller wrap his cloak more closely and securely
about him. Gentleness-mildness-in the form of a calm
and genial influence, followed, when the cloak was thrown
off, and the contest was ended. The moral is, that peaceful
and gentle, and the milder influences are more operative
in overcoming resistance among human beings, than are
those which are harsher and rougher. Wherefore do we
read in the Book indited by the God who made us, and
who knows best what elements we are made of, and what
means to employ for their regulation and control-" If
thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him
drink; for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his
head;" or, in other words, thou shalt subdue him. I say,
wherefore was this beautiful instruction given to us by our
Maker, if an opposite course would be better?7 But, sir, this
lovely and harmonizing law of kindness is impressed even upon
beasts. It isa seen and felt every where. We see it in its ef-
fects upon the elephant, who cannot be altogether uncon-
scious of his power. Is he lured or driven into the pitfall,
we learn that, in capturing him there, two parties are present,
as two are now before you, sir. The one employs force, and
spears and tortures the animal; the other interferes, and
drives these torturers off. The enraged monster resists, and
aims his blows for the destruction of his oppressors, but
throws himself as a little child into the possession and keep-
ing and guidance of his merciful protectors and peace-loving
friends. Nothing, sir, is insensible to this law of kindness;
and wherefore should the Indian be'? Sir, I assert it, and I
speak from many years of personal intercourse with this peo-
ple-I assert it in the name of the history of all the past,
from the landing at Plymouth and Jamestoi n to this hour,
(and, did time an', space authorize it, I would produce tihe in-
stances, which are as numerous as are the points of inter-
course between the white and the red man,) that the law of
kindness, and the presence and action to a peaceful influence,
aremore operative upon the red man than the white. I could
assign reasons for this peculiar susceptibility to this influence
upon the Indian, if I had time. Andi, sir, for the same rea-
sons they are more revengeful. The main element of this
marked difference (difference in degree, I mean) is to be found
in the afflictions which these people have been made to en-
dure, and in their isolated and almost unbefriended state. How
soothing to persons thus circumstanced is the voice of a friend!
How welcome is kindness, and how overpowering to the
storm-beaten and buffeted, the exile and the long-deserted,
are the accents of a sustaining friendship! And how fierce,
upon the other hand, and how deadly, is the hate of the
pursued and persecuted, who feel that in their own might only
can they secure right!
It were easy, sir, to write a volume upon this subject. But
I must conclude (being cramped within the limits of a news-
paper column) this part of my duty-for I feel it to be my
duty to you, sir, and to my country, to its humanity, to its
Christian spirit, to Florida and its sufferings, to the Indians
and their.wrongs, to have taken up this subject. I wish it
had fallen into abler hands!
In conclusion, if you follow the counsels of your adviser,
"Florida," and continue the war, you will not only disap-
point the awakened hopes and just expectations of the peo-
ple; for, sir, they expect the entire system of our Indian rela-
tions will be changed, and changed speedily ; but you shut,
and forever, (at least against this Administration,) the door-
way to pacific overtures; whereas, if you commence with
peaceful overtures, you have the war-bolt in your hand after-
wards, and the way wide open for its use.
In my next I shall vindicate the Cherokee Indians and their
mission to thie Seminoles from the odium which your corre-
spondlent would seent to have meant to cast tpoin them. I
will unmask that whole business. The portion of your cor-
respondent's remarks to you to which I allqde are these: I
have yet to learn wherein the Cherokee diplomatists rentlered
any, the least service, thusso vauntingly claimed," &c. &c. 1
will tell him; and I will tell him also "wherein' they failed
to secure a peace.
It is time the public mind was enlightened upon this more
than Roman offering of the noele and generous-hearted Che-
rokee Chief and his enlightened confederates in that work of
mercy. WILLIAM PENN.
Messrs. GALES & SEATON : In the papers of this city are
advertised fur sale the works of our fellow-citizen, DAVID
HOFFMAN, LL. D. Although I know that your columns
are greatly crowded with political matters, yet tho pleasuie
and information I have derived from the reading of those
works induce me to request corner in your paper in which
to notice them.
I am not a LaWYER, and therefore can have but little
weight with those of that profession. Such, however, know,
if they have ever read, the value and excellence of those
learned works-" Hoffman's Course of Legal Study," and
"Hoffman's Legal Outlines;" the high estimation in which
they are held by the first jurists in this country and Europe,
their high commendation by Judge STORY and others; and
that their fame abroad caused the University of Gottingen
spontaneously to present Mr. Hoflman with the highest honors
of that Institution as a token of their great respect for his li-
Some years since I procured and read the Course of Le-
gal Study." I was astonished to find such an immense fund
of information on mental and moral science, religion, political
economy, history, the eloquence of the bar and pulpit, and
all the obligations devolving on man, when viewed in his re-
lations. The first volume is peculiarly adapted to the condi-
tion and profession of every man. Several ministers have
read it, as they have informed me, with much pleasure and
profit. It contains a synopsis of many important works, and
is a most valuable assistant to gentlemen of every profession.
To those especially who read from the love of literature only,
I must say, this volume affords a rich repast indeed. The
second volume is one of the most concise and beautiful expo-
sitions of the Common Law, the Laws of Equity, Admiralty
Laws, the Law of Nations, Medical Juprisprudence, and Po-
litical Economy that I have ever perused. Throughout the
work, the reader is furnished with the authorities and the
parts thereof which hea" on each specific point.
Hoffman's Legal Outlines" is a work, I believe, without
a parallel, and although I shall never be professionally bene-
fited by such a work, I have too mush anxiety for the literary
prosperity of my country not to hope that Mr. Hoffman will
pursue and complete it, according to his original plan. This
would bring into a small compass, comparatively, more legal
and other information than was ever contained in so many
volumespr could well be expected from any one source. As far
as publiaed, the work is in itself complete; but if finished as
first designed, as an entire body of law, it would doubtless be
pre-emirnt. The beauty and chastity of the style win upon the
reader irsuch a manner as to constrain him to forget that he
is readiii something connected with law, the driest study, it
is said, a which mai was ever engaged.
Lately Mr. HOFFMAN has written several works, designed
for _, -nc l readers of every class, entitled The Grumbler,"
and .I- Viator, or, A Peep into my Note Book." I have
casuallyheard of a projected work of his to be Called the
" Chroncles of Cartaphilus, or the Wandering Jew." Some
of the rast interesting pieces I ever perused are to be found
in Thb Grumbler" and Viator." Who can read in the
former The power of Beauty," Rude children and foolish
mothers" Marriage often the grave of love," The Con-
noisseurin Wines," Holding fast until you die," "A Man
of Hon'r," Love of Money," Servants at the ball door,
and their mendicity," and especially "The true Idea cOf Pray-
er," ant the delicate and facetious reproof of Swearing,"
that is mlot forcibly struck with the purity and beauty of the
hangualp, that happy combination of the grave and the face-
tious, aid especially that flow of strong moral and Christian
sentimet which they contain '?
I har known the thoughtless vanity of several girls, the
fashionable neglect of truth in many families, and the ungen-
teel profanity of many a youth cured by The Grumbler."
The pines are short, but truly appropriate.
In thi Viator" are combined morality, religion, and sci-
ence, wih a literary criticism for which Mr. Hoffman is pecu-
liarly will qualified. Who can read without a tear the Lon-
don Crosings" and The Young Inebriate!" Who is not
struck with that vein of moral, if not religious, feeling which
runs through the whole Who does not see in these works
indubitable evidence that if our fellow-citizen, Mr. Hoffman,
had lived is the days of Addison, Steele, and Johnson, on the
other side of the water, the voice of an entire ration would
have proclaimed him their equal, if not superior '
I know of no book, Messrs. Editors, better adapted for a
centre table and for family use than "' T'he Grumbler" and the
"Peep into my Note Book." Could I believe I,-l i.''r',. my
humble name would add to the circulation ot ib....- i..' all
his works, I would append it to these remarks in capitals.

FROM BRITISH JOURNALS,

IMAINiATION, A POEM, BSY LouisA FRANCES POULTER.-We
welcome good poetry as much as we eschew it when indif-
ferent, and are happy to notice this volume, because it is
creditable to the authoress. Miss Poulter's poetry is of
genuine quality ; it is literally imaginative, and there is con-
siderable spirit, originality, and force about it. We believe
we Cannot give. a better specimen than the following picture

To gaze upon the paths which onward lie,

To that when we shall lay our heads on Earth,
And, careless of the bitter, searching blast,
That chills her frozen bosom, sleep as fast,
As peaceably, as if no grief had priest

AN INDIAN'S LETTER.-Captain Basil Hall, in his amus-
ing Patchwork," gives the : *- .1 as a literal copy of the
letter of an Indian to his master, who held an official station
at Madras. It is as clear and intelligible as one of -lume's
speeches: My ever reputable Sir: Withall respectfully begs

ture of best lucidity auspicious adorned generousful presence
of protection the poor native writer's as equal qualification

SYNCRETIC AssnoCIATION.-Last evening, a lecture was de-
livered at the Suffolk street Gallery by Mr. Barham, one of
the members of this Association, on the principles of Syncre-
tism. The term Syncretism" was used by Plutarch in his
essay on "Brotherly Love," to express the sentiment of affec-
tionate fraternity by which men were moved to desire the re-
conciliation of differences, in order to unite for the prosecu-
tion of any mutual undertaking. The term was adopted by
the foundmlets of the Society to imply the abstract principle of
association in connexion with an institution, the chief aim of
which was to aid in the application of it, as a law, relative to
such improvements in the state of general and individual in-
terests as were required by the capabilities of mankind, and
not in any exclusive sense. It would seek to allay the dis-
cord that prevailed in the world of opinion by the healing in-
fluences of philosophy, and to bring together the man of ge-
nius and the possessor of weaLh-the one to propose some
eligible plan, and the other to provide the means for itsexecu-
tion. Men of rank, philanthropists, authors, artists, actors,
professional persons, and capitalists, were therefore invited to
join the Syncretic Association, that by the unionof talent and
wealth the most desirable ot jects might be prosecuted with
the greatest facility. The Association had already been dili-
gent in endeavoring to effect oneof the great desiderata of the
present day-the regeneration of the Drama-in respect to
which its members had proceeded, with some success, in
uniting in one body those engaged or interested in the Drama,
in order to promote the trueinterests of that important branch
of our national literature. Other objects of importance con-
nected with mental anid natural philosophy, the fine arts, sci-
ence, and social economy, would receive attention so soon as
arrangements could be made for their consideration.
LADY BLESSINGTON'S ACCOUNT OF VENICE.-The silence
of Venice constitutes, in my opinion, one ofits greatest charms.
This absence of noise is peculiarly soothing to the mind, and
disposes it to contemplation. I looked out from my balcony
last night, when the grand canal reflected a thousand brilliant
stars on its water, turbid though it be; and the lights stream-
ing from the windowson each side showed like golden columns
on its bosom Gondola after gondola glided along, from some
of which soft music stoleonth ear, and sometimes their 3pen
windows revealed some youthful couple with their guitars, or
some mote matured ones, partaking their light repast of fruit
and cakes; while not unfrequently a solitary male figure was
seen reclined on the seat absorbed in the perusal of some
book. The scene realized some of the descriptions of Venice
read years ago; and except that the gondolas were small in
number, and the lights from the houses few and far between,
I could have fancied that no change had occurred since the
descriptions I referred to were written. The morning light
reveals the melancholy alteration; and as I stood on the same
balcony to-day, and saw the muddy canal with a few strag-
gling gondolas gliding over it, the defaced and mutilated pa-
laces, and the reduced population, all brought out into dis-
tinctness by the bright beams of the sun, I could hardly be-
lieve it was the same scene that looked so well last night.
Moonlight is a great beautifier, and especially of all that has
been touched by the finger of decay, from a palace to-a wo-
man. It softens what is harsh, renders fairer what is fair,
and disposes the mind to a tender melancholy in harmony with
all around.- The Idler in Italy.
UNSATISFACTORY STATE OF THE LOWER ORDERis.-There
are many thoughtful persons who regard with fear and trem-
bling the present state of society in this country. The
marked separation between great masses of the laboring
population and the superior ranks, and the avowed deter-
rination of these masses to contend for the principle of
mastery, according to the preponderance of numbers, are
considered very alarming symptoms, and indicative of some
great social convulsion. We acknowledge that in certain
parts of the United Kingdom these symptoms are sufficiently
serious to demand the attention of statesmen, and, indeed,
of all men who interest themes Ives in the peace and well-
being uf the kingdom ; but we do not apprehend any gene-
ral convulsion of the existing order and classification of so-
ciety from the circumstances to which we have alluded, nor
from their further li-ti.'r.-. We expect that natural feeling
and common sense wilt [.rj el iiithe end, and without much
disturbance. This we expect, because truth, and justice,
antI reasonableness, point to such a conclusion, andi they ge-
nerally prevail in England, notwithstanding the efforts which
selfish derrngogues, and exaggerating fools, are in the habit
of making in order to counteract them. But that the pre-
sent elements of disorder and the threatening symptoms may
subside, without any violent crisis, or frightful explosion, of
the existing structure of society, it is undoubtedly very ex-
pedient that men of power and influence should be upon
their guard, both to resist the machinations of those who
hope to profit by disturbance, and to testify, by precept and
by example, that liberty and happiness are more likely to arise
from order, obedience, and self-command, than from riotous
discontent and rebellious enterprise. We think that some
new plan of more immediate superintendence among the la-
boring population of manufacturing districts is required.
We Jo not think that either police or poor-law commission-
ers will suffice. The people want friendly superintendence,
and something of this kind, we think, the legislature ought
to try to provide.-Post.
THE TRIUMPH OF MtNISTERS.-Great and astounding is
the news from China. The Chronicle is fainting through ex-
cess of joy, whilst Globy's tenderer frame is thrown into con-
vulsions. Talk of incapables now, ye wretched Conserva-
tives! if ye dare. Never was England flushed with brighter
conquests. The days of Chatham are renewed. Lord Pal-
merston has but to wink, anti it is done; actum est with France,
Russia, Egypt, India, andi the Celestial Empire. The news
from China is news indeed. And when we add to this glori-
ous intelligence that a British war steamer has actually, incredi-
ble as the feat may appear, sailed two miles up the river which
leads to the capital of China, and then sailed back again;
that the natives just caughtt" looked at its evolutions with
astonishment; that our gallant sailors have enjoyed the high
and inestimable privilege of seeing one end of the great wall;
that the Red Button conversed with the Admiral with a
charming affability ; that provisions, including some remark-
ably fine apples and pears, were ordered for the squadron;
that the Emperor took only ten days to consider whether he
would take any notice of Admiral Elliot; that the "Ten
thousand Years" then benignantly dismissed him, with a pro-
mise that something should he arranged with him either at
Ning-po, or Canton, or the Scilly Isles, or No-man's Land;
that this most satisfactory promise was extorted by the pre-
sence of a squadron, consisting of a man-of-war and four
frigates, besides smaller vessels, -.nd having a lody of troops
on board; and that this success al demonstration having been
made, the Admiral, and tk, Commissioner, and the troops,
and the sailors returned to Chusan pretty much as they left
it; when, we say, these startling facts are added to the cheer-
ing intelligence imparted in oar first paragraph, the country
will assuredly rise as one man, and hail Cupid, god of soft
persuasion," the pink of diplomatists, and rosy-posy of states-

MONDAY, MARCH 29, 1841.
We regret to learn that the SECRETARY OF
STATE left this city yesterday morning, for New
York, in consequence of having heard of the dan-
gerous illness of Mrs. WEBSTER'S Father, HER-
MAN LE Roy, Esq. a gentleman of advanced age,
long known as an eminent merchant in that city.
Mr. WEBSTER will, we understand, return to the
S seat of Government at the earliest moment in his
L, COL. TODD.-In reference to a rumor that Col.
'IARLES S. TODD, of Kentucky, has been desig-
tBated by the PRESIDENT for a foreign mission,
some of the newspapers have asked who Colonel
TODD is. Those whose recollection of public
affairs extends back to the war of IS12, and even
to the later period of Mr. MONROE'S Administra.
tion, would need no one to tell them who this
gentleman is; but, for the information of younger
politicians, lessap familiar with the men and things
of the periods to which we refer, we copy from
the National Intelligencer of April 13, 1824, the
"Colonel C. S. TODD, late Charg# d'Affaires
of the United States to tihe Government of Co-
lombia, arrived in this city yesterday, on his way
to rejoin his family, having been detained at
Charleston for several weeks by illness, from
which he has almost entirely recovered. Mr. T.
was appointed Secretary of Legation to the Mis-
Ssion to that Republic, but declined accepting the
appointment. It is but just to say that Colonel
TODD has acquired great respect in the eyes of
those who have had an opportunity of observing
it, by the manner in which he has discharged his
duties whilst abroad."
We have thought it due to a gentleman who is
at this moment spoken of fr a distinguished post
abroad to revive the above notice of him, which
shows what was thought of him at an era when
public trust implied something more in the incum-
bent than mere party subserviency. In regard to
Col. TODD, it may interest those unacquainted with
his history to add that he was born in Kentucky ;
was a son of Judge TODD, of the Supreme Court
of the United Stales; was a graduate of William
and Mary College; was educated for the law at
Litchfield, Connecticut ; entered the late war as a
volunteer subaltern from Kentucky, in IS12; in
1813 was made a captain in the regular army, and
aid-de-camp to Gen. HARRISON at the battle of the
Thames; in 1814, he was assistant inspector gen-
eral and acting adjutant general to HARRISON and
MCARTHUR; in 1815 he was inspector general of
the eighth military district. Gen. HAnRISON said,
in his report, that he had rendered the most im-
portant services from the opening of the campaign,
and was particularly distinguished in the pursuit of
Proctor." He and Col. WOOD pressed Proctor
so closely that he& abandoned his carriage and
sword, which became their prize. No more beau-
tiful eulogium could have been pronounced upon
an officer than Gen. HARRISON'sa declaration to a
distinguished member of the Government, that
he (Colonel TODD) was equal in bravery and su-
S perior in intelligence to any officer of his rank in
MARYLAND CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION.
The Governor of the State of MARYLAND has
issued his proclamation appointing Monday, the
17th day of May, as the d(lay for holding the elec-
tion in that State for Representatives to Congress.
The Frederick Citizen of Thursday contains a
communication from the Hon. FRANCIS THOMAS,
in which he gives notice to his fellow-citizens of
the district that he declines being a candidate for
re-election to Congress.
The Whigs of the Baltimore Congressional Dis-
trict are proposing persons as fit candidates to re-
present that district in Congress. Among the
names proposed we observe that of Z. COLLINS
LEE, Esq. formerly an esteemed resident of our
It appears from a Memorial of the citizens of
Hancock and Washington Congressional District
to the Governor and Council of the State of Maine,
that J. A. LOWELL, who has received the certifi-
cate as member of Congress from the late Execu-
tive of that State, is not entitled to his seat-va-
rious irregularities having occurred in the returns.
The Legislature of this State ended its annual
session on the 8th of this month.
On the 9th instant, a Whig State Convention was
held at New Orleans, at which HENRY JOHNiSON
was nominated as the Whig candidate for Gov-
ernor at the ensuing election.
We are authorized, from an official source, to
announce Get. HAMILTON'S success in negotiat-
ing in France the loan for Texas.
The following paragraph from the Kennebec
Journal contains a fact which it would be well for
all agitators to bear in mind :
"We should not lose sight of the fact that the territory
belonging to us on the other side of the St. John has never
been under the civil or military jurisdiction of the States of
Maine or Massachusetts. British laws are the only laws
which have ever been enforced there. The Aroostook, on
the contrary, was occupied by Americans when Sir JoeN
HARVEY threatened to drive us from thence, but did not at-
tempt to do it. The river St. John is now commonly under-
stood to be the temporary dividing line contemplated in the
arrangement of General SCOTT on the part of President VAN
BuIEN, Governor FAIRFIELD on the part of Maine, and Sir
JOHN HARVEY on the part of Q.ueen VrCTrORIA."
DIvoRCE.-The Virginia House of Delegates, moved by
the extraordinary number of applications for divorce brought
before it, have passed a bill on the subject, giving to the Cir-
cuit Superior Court the decision in the case, under the provi-
sions of the bill of which the following is a part:
And be it further enacted, That, after the lapse of seven
years from the rendition of any decree of divorce a mensa et
thoro, the same shall operate for the party applying for and
obtaining it as a decree of divorce a vinculo matrimonii, and
it shall be lawful for such party to marry again."
MYsTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE.-We learn from Kensing-
ton, New Hampshire, that great excitement exists in that
State in consequence of the sudden and unaccountable ab-
sence of a wealthy, respectable citizen, and a State Senator,
from his home-he having been absent upwards of five weeks,
and no intelligence been obtained from him whatever, although
the most unremitting exertions to that effect have been made
by his friends.
MissoURi BANK.-We learn (says the St. Louis Gazette)
the Bank to-day rescinded its resolution of the 12th Novem-
ber, 1839, and wilt hereafter receive on deposit Ihe notes of
the State Bank of Illinois, the Bank of Illinois, the State
Bank of Indikna, and the banks of Kentucky. This is an
important measure at this time, and will contribute to the re-
lief of our trading community.

DEPARTMENT OF STATE, MARCH 27,1841.
To M. ST. CLAIR CLARKE, WILLIAM S. MURPHY,
and HUDSON M. GARLAND, Esqs.
GENTLEMEN : It is the desire of the President
to be fully acquainted with the state of progress
in which the public works in this city now are,
and with the degree of skill, fidelity, and economy
with which those works are carried on.
For this purpose he has appointed you a Com-
mission of Exanmination anid Inquiry, and he
wishes you to direct your attention to the follow-
1. What is the number of persons employed on
the public buildings now in progress in the city,
exclusive of laborers? This is the more necessary
as many of these persons hold offices not created
by specific provisions of law.
2. What is the respective duty of each of these
3. What prices are paid to them for their ser-
vices ; and whether, in any case, the compensa-
tion is unreasonably lalge ?
4. Whether there has been,or is, any just ground
of complaint against those persons, or any of
them, either in regard to their own diligence and
skill, or in regard to their treatment of laborers
employed by them ?
If you have any reason to suppose that any
one has been guilty of misconduct, you will state
the charge to him and give him an opportunity to
answer it; and will report no evidence of which
the party shall not have had notice.
You will inquire into no man's political opi-
nions or preferences; but, if it be alleged that any
person, having the power of employingand dismis-
sing laborers, has used that power, either in employ-
ing ordismissing, with any reference to the political
opinions of those who may have been employed
or dismissed, or for any political or party object
whatever, or in any other way violated his duly
for party or election purposes, you will inquire
into the truth of such .uj'u-ii.n ; and if yoa find
reason to think it well-founded, in any case, you
will state the particular facts and circumstances
on which your opinion is formed.
It is not intended that this Commission shall
be of long continuance, nor be attended with any
considerable expense. You will use as much
despatch, therefore, as the nature of the case may
allow, and make report to this Department. A
reasonable sum will be allowed to you for your
time and service out of the appropriate fund.
BY THE PRESIDENT'S ORDER :
D. WEBSTER, Secretary of Slate.
In pursuance of instructions from the SECRETA-
- RY OF TEE ItEASURY, the following Circular has

as soon after its close as practicable, and in so

accrued prior to the 4th instant, the other to those
subsequent thereto, unless'your disbursements since

may be rendered as heretofore.
You will, however, in all cases, report the

ILLINOIS, FEB. 12, 1841.
After surveying the field again and again, politically, mo-
rally, religiously, and, in every form and attitude the subject
can be contemplated, I can arrive at but one conclusion, that
political parties, organized as such, with all the wheels and
springs of political machinery in operation, are, necessarily,
inherently, and wholly, corrupt. They cannot be made other-
wise. They furnish the fullest evidence of entire, total-
yea, TE-TOTAL DEPRAVITY. It cannot be otherwise. I care
not what principles they avow, Democrat, Whig, Republi-
can, Federal, State Rights, Union, or what not, they are
necessarily, inherently, and perrse corrupt, destructive to li-
berty, human rights, democracy, equity, justice, and every
thing that is dear to man. The only case where an or-
ganized political party, with its party machinery, is in the
Last degree justifiable, is on the same principle that our
farmers set hack-fires around their fields when the prairie is
on fire, to destroy an existing evil. But what farmer is fool
enough to spend his time and strength, after a prairie fire has
been destroyed, in Le !iI-r. i,. brush-wood, and especially the
rails of his crnfirli-, i..r i. purpose of keeping up a back-
fire If OLD Tip, with his leaders," and led," will
now turn to and annihilate tho political parties, and make his
Administration work exclusively and solely for the interests
of the country-and the whole country-and truly and really
restore the Jcferson democratic qualificatiott for office, Is
he capable? Is he HONEST Is he friend to the Consti-
lutian and country ?" though I did not vole for himn, I will
then vote that hie be enrolled a second Washington-a real
Saviour of his country-especially if (as hle has promised) he
will stay quit" at the end of four years, and use no influ-
ence about a "successor." Of course it is expected he will
" upset" the present Cabinet, and turn out all those who
have been turned in" against the voice of thie People. or
who have proved themselves incompetent or dishonest. But
if ihe and his adherents act out the New York policy, as hor
thirty years lias pertained to all parties, "to the victors belong
the spoils," for the mere stating of which Gov. MARCY was
much abused, then, Weo be to tie c,-nr.irv- .'. our liberties-
and tiour Republican institutions .'ii. Tr i: Co. now have
the opportunity of breaking down party, and destroying party
machinery, and if they do it, the PEOPt.LE will rejoice. Ifthey
do it riot, then we are gone as a nation! My grandchildren
will live under a military, or some worse despotism. Talk
about MONOPOLIES !!! Of all the monopolies created
or devised, none are so much to be watched and dreaded as
that sort of machinery which, under cloak of democracy and
the People, MONOPOLIZES the offices of the country. Of all
unprincii led combinations, POLITICAL COMBINATIONS are the
climax of evil. And what im, u r ; -I. politicalil party but
a combination of lthe very v. -ti t .m It a man was as pure
as an angel of H-leaven, in his political principles and motives,
if he will suffer himself to be yoked up in a political cormbi-
nation, throw himself into the vortex of its influence, think,
act, and vote by the dictation of his leaders, or, if you please,
become one of the leaders, he will inevitably become as cor-
rupt as Auld Sam" himself. He cannot help becoming
both dishonest and corrupt. It is the law of Divine Provi-
dence, and the declaration of divine truth, that Evil conm-
mumications corrupt good mrianners."
I am rejoiced that my old friend CASEY views this matter as
Truth is truth, and will remain so.
By the way, when I was in Springfield, I found no small
trouble in the party," for fear he would tbe a candidate.
The leaders" were striving to produce the impression that
he had declined being a candidate. They are terribly afraid
of his popularity in his district, and have resolved on his des-
truction. But my candid opinion is, they cannot bring out a
man by a Convention" that can run him down.
Our pecuniary affairs are really becoming alarming. I
can hardly expect otherwise but our State credit will be sa-
crificed. The reckless course towards the State Bank, by an ad-
journment sine die, after t wo weeks' session, with the avowed
object of compelling the Bank to resume, on purpose to crip-
ple its means and break it up, so as to create another on its
ruins, with the other operating causes, is about to leave us
with a deficient circulating medium. Much of the stock of
the banks, from former over issues in the years of extrava-
gance and speculation in 1836-'37, is locked up, it being in
debts that the People cannot now pay. The Legislature
ought to levy a tax (additional) on property equal to an in-
crease of 20 per cent., then raise a special loan for additional
bank stock on pledge of that tax, and thus furnish the means
of circulation anid exchange, so as our produce could bie pur-
chased anml taken to market, and by this means the People
could easily pay their taxes and their debts.
The Directors of the State Batik have recently made re-
port to the Legislature that, without relief, (what sort of re-
lief I do not learn,) it must and will wind up. Compelling
our bank to resume specie payments before the other West-
ern banks, was like a man cutting his throat to save thetrou-
ble of an ague. A man is a knave or a foot who thinks we
can get along without banks and bank bills. Instead of fos-
tering, protecting, and sustaining existing institutions that
are solvent, and furnish a circulating medium, the "party,"
forsooth, must hypocritically preten'j to oppose all banks. I
say hypocritically, and the PEOPLE know it is downright sheer
hypocrisy-unprinciplsmd PARTY recklessness.
NEW YORK, MARCH 26.
Chief Justice HORNBLOWER pronounced the sentence of
death upon P4TnEt R oBINsor, convicted of the murder of Mr.
SUYDAM yesterday morning at 11 o'clock. It was a brief but
feeling address, says the Courier. 'The miserable wretch was
reminded of the awful crime of which he stood convicted-
exhorted him to prepare himself to meet that God whose pre-
cepts he had violated, but whose mercy might vyet be purchas-
ed by a sincere repentance, and finally proceeded to pass the
sentence, which was, that the prisoner be executed in thejail
of the county, according to the laws of the State, between the
hours of 10 ,o'clock in the morning and 2 o'clock in the after-
noon, on Friday, the 16.h day of April next.
The prisoner manifested the same stoical complacency dur-
ing the sentence which he had hitherto shown. The Chief
Justice seemed to be deeply affected, and kept his face con-
cealed for some moments after he had concluded his solemn
and painful duties.
After the prisoner had been remanded to his cell, an order
was made by the coLrt for the delivery of the watch, papers,
&e. belonging to the deceased, found in the possession of Ro-
binson, to the representatives of Mr. Suydam, unless suffi-
cient cause should be shown for a different disposition of
STEAM FtIGATE MIsItsstPPrpi.-We find in the Philadelphia

sion 181 feet, andt her tonnage about 2,000 tons. The cylin-
ders of her engines are each 75 inches diameter and 7 feet
stroke. Her paddle wheels 30 feet diameter. She will have
4 copper boilers, with stowage for 800 tons of coal. The
paddle wheels will be the divided split paddles generally used
in American vessels. The hollers ate tested to a pressure of
30 lbs. per square inch above the atmospthere, and intended to
be worked to a pressure not exceeding 15 lbs. The vessel
will be rigged and fitted as a frigate, and artied with 10 guns-
two 10-inch long guns, and eight 42 pounders.
TmE HOMER LosT.-The steamboat Homer sunk on the
16'h i the Mississippi, about 10 milea below Cape Girardeau,
in 30 feet water; no lives lost. She was from New Orleans
for St. Louis, and had a .luJ ,i.'e' l .'.-, among which were 500
tons of railroad iron. Thi t., i, I, I-ast, will be a total loss.
She was one of the largest boats on the Western waters, had
two cabins, one over the other, and might well be called a
"three-decker." She has done much business in her day,
but was about woru out, having been built at New Albany
nine years since, at an expense of $45,000.-Cineinnati Re-

RoBERaY.-The store of Davis, Palmer & Co., No. 87,
Wtlal,im," street, Boston, was entered tby false keys o0 Tues-
day evening, and a large quantity of watches, rich jewelry,
and silver plate stolen. The amount taken is estimated at
$tO,000. The store was entered in the mi ,in.g in the ab-
sence of the young men who always slept ',h. r,, and who on
their return at atuout 9 o'clock discovered the robbery.
DELtRIUM TEMEsNS NO ExCusE.-In an action brought in
the Common Pleas, New York, by James Butterly vs. Ro-
bert Darling, for an outrageous assault and battery by which
thl plaintiff was wounded and permanently injured, the de-
fence set up was insanity; which, upon investigation, proved
to be deliriums tremens. Judge 1NGLIS held that that species
of insainity did not exonerate the trespasser, and the jury
rendered a verdict for 5i500 damages.

ers, says: They a0. no sun -flowers,

THE WEATHER has been most delightful for the last three
or four daN'6-,1,.ii vernal and refreshing. Spring already
advances; ant d % ry thing around us in the fields and gar-
dens bears evidence of its approach. The peach trees begin
to unfold their beautiful blossoms.
PUBLIC LECTURES.-We understand that the lecture de-
livered last Tuesday evening by the Hon. JOHN t.UoNCY
ADaMs in Dr. Laurie's Church was attended by a very
crowded and attentive audience, who were highly gratified
by the eloquent and excellent remarks which fell from the
lips of the venerable and distinguished speaker. The subject
of the lecture was that of Faith-a subject which was treat-
ed of with great originality and profundity of thought, such
as might naturally be expected from the gigantic mind of the
LECTURES ON Eo-v'TsAN ANTItQUITIEs.-The Rev. LEvw R.
REESE, of Georgetown, has already delivered two interesting
lectures in the Methodist Protestant Church of this city, on
Egyptian Antiquities. Of the remaining two lectures of this
course, which are to hbe delivered this and to-morrow evening
at the same time and place, we deem it but just to say that,
should they prove as instructive and entertaining as those
which have preceded them (one of which we hiad the plea-
sure of hearing last Friday evening) they will not fail to
afford much gratification to those ladies anid gentlemen who
may be disposed to attend them. The illustrations, by means of
a large magic lantern, of the pyramids, ruins, idols, and other
antiquities of Egypt, while they gratify the eye of the be-
holder, serve, in no ordinary degree, to render the subjects
under discussion more striking and familiar to the audi-
ence. Arid the reverend speaker is very happy, not only in
his manner of lecturing on these interesting topics, but also
in his remarks as the illustrations are presented to the eye of
the spectator through tile magic lantern. It is gratifyi'tg to
learn that these lectures were very numerously attended and
liberally patronized in Georgetown, and we hope that they
will be well attended in our city during thie remainder of
HEALTH OF THE CITY.-From the representations made to
us by medical gentlemen and other citizens who are most
likely to speak advisedly in the matter, we learn that the
general health of Ihe city continues good. It is true that a
few cases of small-pox have occurred, which have created
some alarm in particular sections of our city ; but these cases
are now under proper medical treatment, and will, as we
have reason to believe, yield to the power and skill of medi-
cine. For the information of our citizens generally who ap-
pear to be unacquainted with the city ordinance relating to
this contagious and dreadful disease, we place before them
ACT preventing the introduction or propagation of the small-pox.
Be it enacted by the Fi'rst and Second Chambers of the City
Council qf 11 .'....--...,, That it shall not be lawful for any
person, voluntarily, to introduce or propagate the small-pox
within this Corporation in any way whatever.
Sec. 2. And be it enacted, That any person offending
against the provisions of this act shall forfeit and pay, for
every offence, one hundred dollars-oone-half to the informer,
and the residue lo the Corporation.
Sec. 3. And be itenacttd, That if any case of the small-
pox shall be accidentally introduced in any part of the city,
it shall be the duty of the person in whose family such case
shall exist, to report the same forthwith to the Mayor, under
the penalty of twenty dollars for neglecting the same, which
penalty shall be recovered in like manner as other penalties
for infractions of the laws of this Corporation-one-half to
the informer, and the other half for the use of the Corporation.
Since writing the above paragraph, we have been request-
ed by a respectable citizen, who lives in the neighborhood of
the stagnant pool of water to which the annexed advertise-
ment has reference, to copy or notice it in the National Intel-
ligencer. In doing so, we would remark that it has just been
stated to us, by one who knows, that an order was issued last
Friday by the President of the Board of Health to the Ward
Commissioner, requiring him to cause the removal of the
stagnant water, which we presume to be the "Fish Wharf"
or nuisance complained of in the following advertisement
which appeared in the Baltimore Sun of the `27th instant:
AND YET ANOTHER FISH WHARF FOR RENT.-Will be
rented at public auction, on the 1st day of April next, to the
highest bidder, that well known stand for a Fish WVharf, at
the corner of H and 8th streets, in the Northern Liberties,
Washington. Terms made known at the time of renting.
By order of the Board of Control and the Mayor of the
Northern Liberties. G. L. Auct.
P. S. Excellent DUCKiNG at all hours of the day.
NEw MILITARY COMPANrES.-It is gratifying to learn from
gentlemen connected with the National Blues and the Colum-
bia Artillerists, that, since the Inauguration of the President,
when these two companies, though small in numbers, formed
no inconsiderable portion of the escort of Gen. HaRRISON,
they have been regularly increasing in number, so as to
amount at this time to about fifty members to each company.
A new company called the MARION RIFLE CORPS," has
alio been recently organized in the eastern portion of the city,
which is said to consist of the bone and sinew of the Navy
Yard. We understand that at a meeting of the memberre of
this corps, held on last Tuesday evening, the following officers
were duly elected:
Jacob Bright, Captain; John McCauley, let Lieutenant
Win. M. Ellis, 2d do.; Thomas Kelly, 3d do.; Win. Burnes-
ton, 1st Sergeant; Thos. Altemus, 2d do.; Thos. Fugitt, 3d
do.; John D. Bland, 4th do.; Robert Clarke, 1st Corporal;
Jas. Barry, 2d do. Wim. Langley, 3d do i Israel Wayson,
We hope that all these companies may become permanent,
efficient, and well-disciplined bodies of citizen soldiers, alike
creditable to their respective commanders and to the city of
TuHE LATE CITY ORDINANCES RESPECTING FISH WHARVES
By reference to the proceedings of the two Boards of the
City Council, published in another part of this day's paper,
it will be seen that the Circuit Court having decided last
Tuesday that the twoordinances of the Corporawion relating
to fish wharves, passed on the 8th and 18th inst. wereinvalid,
the Mayor had convened an extra meetingof the two Boards,
which was h(Il lost Thursday evening, when a new ordi-
nance was passed, which was published in the National In-
t-ll,.m.m .-r of the 27th instant. We understand that this
ordinance was also brought unler the consideration of the
Circuit Court last Saturday by Mr. F. S. KEY, counsel for
Mr. Lambell, complainant, who argued against the validity
of the law ; but the Court, after hearing the Corporation At-
torney in reply, decided in favor of the validity of that ordi-
nance, Judge '1 maua'ronTO dissenting from the decision.
In behalf of Mr. Lambell, the complainant agaimast the va-
lidity of the two former ordinances, which were the subject
of investigation last Tuesday htefore the Circuit Court,
Messrs. WALTER JONEs and F. S. KEY acted as counsel for
the coml.lainant, and Mr. R. S. CoxE as counsel for the re-
As the opinion of the Circuit Court in these interesting
cases is matter of considerable interest to our city readers, we
shall endeavor to obtain a copy of it for publication on Wed-
POLICE INTELLtGENCE.-NO commitments have been made,
as we learn from the police books of this city, during the past
week, for serious offences, such as felonies, burglaries, &c.
but a number of convictions have been had within that period
for violations of the corporation laws: and several commit-
ments to the workhouse of male and female offenders charged
with groerly outrageous and indecent behavior in the public
streets of this city have, as we are informed, taken place
within the last two or three days.
CENTRE MARKET.-There was an abundant supply of
every,kind of butcher's meat, fresh fish, vegetables, and coun-
try produce now in season brought to our principal market
last Saturday. We quote the prices as below:

I RHi MoNEY.--everal respectable citizens engaged in d1m-
ness as storekeepers or mechanics have suggested to us the
expediency and propriety of again cautioning the trading
part of our community against taking as currency notes of a
less denomination than one dollar, Having within a few
days past seen several half dollar notes in circulation, we are
satisfied that our former caution in the premises may have
been overlooked or disregarded. We therefore repeat the
caution, as we most sincerely and heartily deprecate the nui-
sance (we had almost said curse) of a rag money currency.
LATE ALARMS OF FIRa.-The engine companies of this
city were twice called out last Friday by alarms of fire, once
in the morning, and once in the evening. We understand
that, in both cases, no serious danger was impending; and
we regret, in common with every considerate and reflecting
citizen, that the time and services of the fire companies should
be so often unnecessarily brought under requisition.
At a meeting of the physicians of the city of Waslfngton
held at the Medical College on the 27th inst., Dr. McWiL-
LIAMS was appointed chairman, and Dr. BORROWS secretary.
Dr. PARXER, from China, being called upon, presented a very
interesting statement of the condition of medical science
among the Chinese, and of the successful establishment, by
European and American surgeons, of hospitals at Macao and
Canton, and of the extensive benefits which have thus been
conferred on that populous empire. Whereupon, on motion
of Dr. MILLER, seconded by Dr. SEWALL, it was unanimously
Resolved, That this meeting are highly gratified at the
very successful efforts which have been made by the Medical
Missionary Society in China to diffuse the light of correct
medical science through that immense empire; thus opening
a way more effectually than in any other mode for the diffu-
sion of the blessings of civilization and Christianity among
that interesting people.
Resolved, That in view of the good already accomplished,
and the still greater prospective benefits which may reasonably
be anticipated from the vigorous prosecution of this benevo-
lent enterprise, we cordially recommend it as in our opinion
deserving Ihe liberal support of all Christian communities.
Hesolred, That we take much pleasure in bespeaking for
the Rev. Dr. PARKER, who has labored so faithfully and suc-
cessfully in the cause, the kind offices and hearty co-opera-
lion of the benevolent and Chrislian public, and of the med-
ical profession both in this country and in Europe.
Ordered, That the proceedings of this meeting be publish-
ed in the papers of the District.
ALEX. McWILLIAMS, Chairman.
JOSEPU BORROWS, Secretary.
A STRONG CITADEL WITHOUT FIRE-ARMS.
At a time when society is becoming truly catholic in the
cause of morality, temperance, and virtue, and when the
mighty names of Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin are
incorporated into associations, and their opinions promul-
gated in behalf'of temperance particularly, it is enjoined as
a duty J. .Il.ini upon the people of a city bearing the name
of the -'.,,t..r of his Country" to maishai themselves
under the pure and spotless banner until it waves triumph-
antly over the hosts of the demono of our land. The people
of the great cities are erectir. halls and dedicating them to
the use of males and females embarked in a cause which
comes home to every family in our country. In a few years
the efforts of temperance societies will be successful, by sim-
ply securing the enforcement of this grave admonition, Let
the temperate continue temperate, and the land will certainly
be cleared. If brands" cannot "be plucked from the burn-
ing," we can, at least, by a united effort, prevent fuel from
being added to the flame. Children can be taught to abhor
the sice while they pity the victim. What, then, are the
prominent means to be adopted Concentrate and commu-
nicate. In this city we are too poor to erect a hall, but we
can make contributions to purchase a suitable building ; and,
instead of permitting the members of the Ninth street church
to sell their frame building andt lecture-room to be converted
into private residences, (that the proceeds thereof may con-
tribuite to the completion of their spacious and beautiful brick
edifice erecting near the same site,) cannot the temper-
ance societies of the city and Georgetown call a union meet
ing of all their members and friends to the cause of Temper-
ance, aimd appoint ward committees to receive signatures pro-
mising small contributions in the event of an adequate sum
being subscribed'7 The advantage of each subscriber poea-
-r._' an actual interest in the building, and himself and
l.,,.l. being thus identified with the cause, is too obvious to
need further remark. From the known sentiments of our
Chief Judge, and the Mayor of the city in behalf of every
laudable effort in this cause, will they not take this suggest
lion into consideration 'I Such would be a fair response to

NEW YORK, MARCH 27.
The British Queen is behind her time again,
and there are no signs of her coming as I write,
at 3 P. M. The New York steam ships, sail
when they may, continue to reach here on Sun-
day, to the great annoyance of all good Chris-
tiang, and to the greater annoyance of all persons
connected with the daily press.
The rates of domestic exchange have hardly
varied the fraction of a cent during the week. I
send you, however, the table of rates upon important points,
for information. They are no worse, and, if there has been
any change, it is for the better.
Philadelphia, 4 a 41 New Orleans, 7 a 7k
Baltimore, "4 a 4k Mobile, 11 a 12
Richmond, 41 Kentucky, Ohio, and
North Carolina, 5j St. Louis, 10
Savannah, 3 a 34 Michigan, 12 a 15
Charleston, 2 a 21 Mississippi, no rates.
Foreign exchange presents a novel feature in the money
market, all things considered. The last sales of sterling
bills have been made at 107 to 1071. Not only are the rates
decidedly in our favor, but, if they were to remain so, specie
would pay a premium for importation. On France and on
England the terms are equally advantageous to us. Specie,
therefore, commands no premium, and large deposits of it
are made in bank.
The panic which prevailed here two weeks since in reference
to the bills of the free banks has happily subsided. They are
generally in confidence again, and pass about as freely as the
notes of the safety fund banks. Our city banks are firm and
strong, having the confidence of the community and moving
cautiously in all their business relations,
Our packet and freighting ships, with moderate terms for
shipping, are doing a lair business. Cotton and flour go to
Liverpool, and flour alone to Havre. The news by the Cale-
donia was regarded as favorable to the cotton market.
Importations for the week past have been quite heavy-ra-
ther, however, from the fact that a fleet of vessels due some
time since have come in upon us, than from the fact that
much is done in the importing line. So much for the de-
tails of business, and they, I must tell you, look much bet-
ter upon paper than in the street with business men. ltvery
thing now is the result of comparison, and the man who
makes both ends meet of a Saturday night, or loses bat a
small per centage upon his risks and investments, regards
himself as fortunate, and nothing like a good business is done
by the mass of the community. Before we can have prosperity
we must have a currency ; and before we can have that, the
sub-Treasury abomination must be done away with, and a
currency established by Congress, in which the People of
the centre and the extremes of the Union shall have mu-
The mails from the North and East bring but little of interest.
John Bull shows himself to be as turbulent as Brother Jon-
athan. The election excitement is not over yet in Canada.
The return members to the Provincial Legislature, so far, are
27; 20 Unionists and 7 Anti-Unionists. The Legislature of
New Brunswick has been "kicking up" a sort of Virginia
row over the Pension Bills. Our neighbors, you see, with
all their loyalty and love of Old England, act their part in
rowdyism as well as we who live in that so-considered Babtl
and Bedlam, called "a Republican Democracy."

The boats, it is thought, will get through to-night. ,

D R. G. R. PHELPS'S COMPOUND TOMATO
PILLS, the vegetable remedy for diseases arising from
Impurities of the Blood, Dyspepsia, Scrofula, andail Chronic Dis-
eases ; also a substitute for calomel as a cathartic in feversand all
Those pills are no longer, if they ever were, among those of
doubtful utility. They have passed away from those that are daily
launched upon the tide of experiment, and now stand before the
Public as high in reputation, aud extensively employed in all part#
of the United States, the Canadas, and Texas, as any medicine ever
prepared for the relief of suffering man. They have been ex
tensively prescribed by the Medical Faculty wherever they hav
been introduced ; and there are but few towns that cannot produce
some remarkable cases of their curative effects. The numerous
certificates which have been presented to the proprietor from pro-
fessional men and others evince, in an extraordinary manner, the
extensive applicability of this remedy in diseases generally. Pro-
fessional men, and those of sedentary habits, loudly applaud their
hygiene properties in obviating those evils incident to their occu-
pation, and the want of exercise.
They are in general use as a family medicine, and there are
thousands of families who declare they are never satisfied unless
they have a supply always on hand. Ti'hfy have no rival in curing
bilious diseases, dyspepsia, liver complaints, sick-headach, jaun-
dice, rheumatism, heartburn, acid stomach, palpitation, loss of ap-
petite, costiveness, &c.
Those persons liable to sore throat, swelling of the glands,
coughs, and other symptoms indicating scrofula, or consumption,
should take warning in season, and embrace a remedy which,
while it is searching out and eradicating disease, makes no deduc-
tions from the vital powers of the system.
Recommendations from physicians in every variety of climate
in the United States, Texas, and the Canadas, bear witness to the
peculiar and potent effects of this medicine ; in fact, they are pre-
scribed by physicians generally in preference to any other cathar-
tic and alterative medicine i and, having acquired an unprecedent-
ed celebrity as an ANTI-DYSPEPTIC and ANTI-BILIOUS
REMEDY-and this reputation being fully sustained by the high
character of its testimonials, and the increasing demand for the
medicine--it is only necessary for the Proprietor to continue ;.he
caution, that the Public may not mistake other medicines which
are introduced as tomato preparations for the true COMPOUND

TO THE FRIENDS OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IN
St. Mary's Hall is just completing its fourth year. The under-
signed, having originated the enterprise, and taken a constant
share in its prosecution, has thus far borne no public testimony to
the working of the plan, which, in 1837, he announced in his
Appeal to Parents for Female Education on Ciristien Princi-
ples." It was then his expectation that at least four years would
he required for the developmentof the principles of the Institu-
tion, and maturing and settling its plans. He considers that this
is now fully done ; and he therefore feels that it is hie duty to de-
clare to all whom it may concern his entire satisfaction with the
principles, plan, and administration of Sr. Mary's Hall, and his
conviction that itdeserves the full confidence and the liberal pat-
ronage of the friends of Christian Education in the Church.
It is to suceh that the appeal has always been made, and is now;
St. Mary's Hall having been founded and uniformly conducted as
a Church institution. No pupils indeed are rejected on account
of their religimoi profession. All are welcome. And a large
number of its inmates hove always been of such as did not profess
and call themselves churchmen. But its training and its tenden-
cies have always been and will always be in accordance with the
doctrine, discipline, and worship of the Protestant Episcopal
Church. And it is matter of devout tihanlifulness to Almighty
God that from within its walls many have gone out, to carry with
them the principles which wera here imbibed or confirmed ; and,
"adorning in all things the doctrines uf God our Saviour," to pro-
mote, we trust, in the stations in which Providence shall place
them, the same sacred influences in others.
In conclusion, the undersigned, with the very best possible op-
portunities of knowledge, earnestly, and witlot arty qualifications
recommends St. Mary's Hall toall who desire a place for the edu-
cation of their daughters.
I. As a healthy and delightful residence, and a safe asylum.
2. As a domestic institution, another home in which pupils and
teachers live together as one family.
3. As a seminary of sound and thorough instruction in all the
usual branches of useful and elegant learning.
4. As a Christian hnstitution, under pastoral and episcopal su-
pervision, in which there are daily worship and instruction in sa-
cred things; and in which the knowledge of salvation, through
faith which is in Chrit Jesus, is ield and taught to be the most
desirable knowledge, and growth in grace, through sanctification
of the spirit, the great end of human life.

.U ing the last year, fitted up new and comumodious Training
Stables, and having engaged the'services of Alfred Battle as
trainer, are prepared to take in such horses as their friends and
the Public may be disposed to trumt to their care.
JOHN TYLER is a beautiful red sorrel, with a few white hairs
interspersed over him. He is seven years old this spring, five
feet three inches high, and in form and appearance the prototype
of his illustrious progenitor, American Eclipse. His daimi the ce-
lebrated mace isare Creeping Kate, by Sir Archie, grand dam by
the celebrated race horse old Potomac, his g. grand dam by im-
ported Saltram, his g. g. grand dam by old Wildair, his g. g. g.
grand daun by imported Driver, liis g. g. g. g. grand dam by im-
ported Fallow, his g. g. g. i" a. grand dam by imported Vampire.
Performances.-Jolhn Iti r ian in all his races under the
management of Wit. McCargo, Esq. to whom gentlemen are re-
fenmed for any information they may desire relative to the horse as
a racer. His first race was a sweepstake over the Tree Hill
Course, 8300 entrance, mile heats, seven entries, which race he
won. The next fall he started in the great sweepstake at Tree
Hill, 81,000 entrance, seven entries, but was beaten in conse-
quence of being halter east a few days before the race; same fali
he won the proprietor's purse at Churistiansville, Va. beating his
half brother Tuskeno, by Tonson, Col. Johnsen's Virginia Tay-
lor, Jinito, and two others. Next week he won the proprietor's
purse over the Piney Grove Course, distumcing the field the first
heat. Next spring, when four years old, he started for the Jockey
Club purse at Lawrenceville, three mile heats, but was beaten on
account of bad order ; the week after this race, he won the Jockey
Club purse of $500 at Belfield, three mile heats. From Belfield
lie went to Tree Hill, and won the proprietor's purse, two rnile
heats, beating Mr. Heath's Somerville, Mr. Goodwin's Catherine
Davis, Eliza Ann, Reuben Glenroy, Malvern, and V\:n:'.;, Tim-
berlake. Time: first heat 3 m. 5 5 sec.; second ... i.' sec.;
third 3m. 50 sec ; beating the strongest field in the best time ever
made at Tree Hill. Same spring he started for the club at Not-
toway, and won the first heat, but broke down in the second.
Thus ends the short but brilliant career of this fine horse upon the
turf. John Tyler has stood only two seasons; the get of only
one season has yet appeared; they are proverbially fine colts, and
must sustain the family character upon the turf, if any thing can
be told from fine size and high form.
The subscribers having farmed this splendid horse for the en-
suing spring, he will stand at the above named stables, and will
be let to mares at fifty dollars the season, payable by 1st day of
August. In each instance fifty cents tothe groom. Good pastur-
age and stables are provided for mares, and every care and atten-

escapes. Mates grain fed for 33J crnts per (lay.

W EBSTER'S CTAVO DICTIONARY.-Recom-
From oc-rv of Yaile and Middleburg Colleges.-" The
merits of I-r. *A .. it u- American Dictionary of the English lan-
guage are very extensively acknowledged. We regard it as a
great improvement on all the works which have preceded it: their
definitions have a character of discrimination, copiousness, per-
spicuity, and accuracy not found, we believe, in any other diction-
ary of the English language."
From Dr. Fisk and t,-', .,ui.....," of the Wesleyan Univer-
sity, Middleton, Conn. - % .e seen and examined your

From the London Examiner.--" The veteran Webster's
work is new to this country ; but, as far as we can judge, it seems
to justify the highly favorable character it has long maintained in
America, and our view is corroborated by that of a learned friend
and critic, who does not hesitate to say thatit is the best and most
useful dictionary of the English language lie has ever seen."
Many more testimonials might be added from highly distin-
guished men and institutions in England and America.

MPORTED JOHN BULL will stand the ensuing sea-
son at the stables of his owner, in Upper Marlborough, Prince
George's county, Md. at his usual price of $40 the season, and
$60 to ensure-and one dollar to the groom in each case, (to be
paid when the mare is served.) The season price will be payable
on the 1st of July next, when the season will expire.
It is deemed unnecessary to give at length the pedigree of John
Bull, at thb, time, as it has been so often published that all breed-
ere who pay attention to such subjects must be familiar with it.
Suffice it to say, however, that he has been considered by good
judges, and knowing ones in turf history, to be a Horse of the
best blood ever imported, n..,' ,-.t i. ti., .reat Priam himself;
being a greatgrandson of O.'11 IL c'hr.. ..-. his dam side; and
also, a great grandson of the Duke of Grafton's famous mare
ProMella, who realized to her owner, as a breeder, little short of
,100,000 sterling, and produced more race horses than any other
mare that ever lived." If the well-authenticated "History of
the Turf of English Race Horses" has not recorded "lies," then
the above statement is undoubtedly true.
His owner thinks it due to the Public and to breeders to state
with candor, that, owing entirely to accidental circumstances,
arising from an attack of the disease usually known as "wolf's
teeth," and from the improper use of lime-water, and other excit-
ing stimuli, unscientifically applied as a reminedy, John Bull has
unfortunately been made a blind horse, not beingable now to see
from either of his eyes. But as itis well known that blindness,
as a constitutional disease, is not known to any of his family,
breeders may safely trust ta him ia this respect; more especially
as it is known in the present instance to have proceeded from ac-
cident and mismanagement. In all other respects he is in fine
health, and in more than his usual good condition. His eldest
colts are two years old this spring, and, far size, beauty, and good
racing points, will compare with those of any other horse, native
Thie reason will commence on the first of April, and end on the
first of July. Mares, with orwithout colts, sent from a distance,
shall be well fed and taken care of at thirty cents a day.
Apply to Mr. FIELDER a SUIT, at Upper Marlborough, who will
take good care of all mirepsent from g distance.

tracts of land in FauquiercoMunty, Vp., viz.

a few miles from the Fauquier White Sulphur Springs. The land
is of good quality, well watered, is in a productive state ofcultiva-
tion, and highly susceptible of further improvement, by the use of
clover and plaster, which acts finely on it. The improvements,
located near the centre of the farm, are a comfortable frame dwel-
ling-house, containing ten rooms, well finished, and conveniently
arranged t stone kitchen, brick meat-house, dairy, ice-house, corn-
house, carriage-htouse ; a large and convenient barn, 70 by 35 feet,

for stock; a good garden, a pump in the yard, with never failing
springs of pure water convenient. There is also a large and va-
luahble orchard ; aboutthree hundred of the trees, planted by my-
self, selected with great care from the nurseries of New Jer-

tains about 350 acres, adjoins the above ; is bounded on its western
line by the Turnpike; bhas a good dwelling. The land is good,
and that portion of it in cultivation has been under rapid improve-
nmenrit by the clover and plaster system. Mill Run passes through
it, thIe low grounds on which afford extensive and inexhaustible
meadows. There is a site on it fora country Mill, which, from its
pu sition, would command a good custom, and give handsome re-
turns upon a small investment. This Farm, in the hands ofa prac-
tical and industrious man, could be made very valuable. These

JAMES BETTS, Principal.-The Principal of this school, who
has had an experience of five years in teaching, devotes his en-
tire attention to a number of pupils, not exceeding twenty, who
are expected to be under twelve years of age when they are com-
mitted to his care. The location is pleasant and healthful; being
about seven miles from Norwalk, and fifty from the city of New
York, with which places it has daily communication by stages and
steamers. The pupils are all members of the family of the Prin-
cipal ; they board, lodge, and are instructed under the same roof
with himself, and are at all times under his immediate supervi-
sion. Thie discipline of the school is mild and parental, such as its
peculiar character and the age of its pupils naturally suggest.
While the Principal exacts implicit obedience, he at the same time
encourages Ihis pupils to consider him as their friend as well as
their guide, and all his requirements as having reference only to
their own ultimate good. Particular attention is paid to their ex-
ternal habits and depormrnent, as well as to their moral, mental,
social, and physical culture. It is the great object of the school,
by patient, thorough, and effective instruction, to develop, strength-
en, and polish, in just proportion, the entire nature of the pupil.
All the various branches pertaining to a complete English and
mathematical education are taught. A teacher of vocal music is
engaged, at the expense of the Principal, to give instruction in
singing one evening every week during the winter term. The ^U
scholastic year is divided into two sessions of 22 weeks each, com-
mencing on the first Mondays of November and May.
