purchases and sales at the lowest rates for cash, I shall be cornm-

public, under the fullest confidence that nothing will be wanting
but a test of its virtues to convince the most incnidulous of its in-
trinsic v orth over every other now in use for the above complaints.
The necessity for a prompt and early attention to these com-
plaints cannot be too strongly urged upon the mintsd of every per-
son, from'the well-known fact that thousands dlie annually of
Diarrhea and Bowel Complaint, and in most cases for waut of
proper treatment in the first stage of the complaint. This is
plainly to be seen in the case of the tender infant; veryfew, if
any, are to be found in passing through a course of getting their
teeth without being more or less troubled with a dliarrbheaa, which
frequently remains for months, and if the child survives tre shock,
it is left with an impaired constitution. We have the nostsirtling
facts presented to our view, in the bills of mortality during the
summer and fall months, when it is to he seen that hundreds every
season fall victims to this very alarming complaint It is confi-

FROM OUR PARIS CORRESPONDENT.
VERSAILLES, JULY 22, 1842.
The Prince DE POLIONAC, hero of the Ordi-
nances that precipitated CHARLES X. from his
throne, and the man whom the people would have
torn in pieces if they could have laid hands on
Jhim, was in Paris last month without the least
idea of concealment; held affectionate intercourse
and "sweet counsel" with his old royalist friends ;
and has, since this visit, traversed all France, re-
ceiving the homage or welcome of the Legitimists,
unmolested from what quarter soever. Here is a
remarkable example of the subsidence of popu-
lar animosity in political matters, and of the pla-
cableness of French spirit. The Legitimist writers
construe it into proof of a change in public
opinion concerning the value of the revolution of
July and the comparative merits of the Bourbon
and Orleans dynasties. We might oppose to the
mupposition of any change, the manifestations of
regret and sympathy throughout the realm in re-
gard to the death of the Duke DE ORLEANS. But
the Legitimists might plausibly rejoin by a refer-
ence to the similar excitement at the assassina-
tion of the Duke DE BERRY, (in February, 1820,)
presumptive heir to the throne. Viscount de
CHATEAUBRIAND'S eloquent volume of Memoirs of
the Life and Death of the Duke DE BERRY fur-
*nishes some curious analogies. The Viscount's
own lamentations over the fate of his Prince, and
the consequent dangers to his country, have a
sort of echo in the Ministerial pages of this day
respecting the Orleans catastrophe. His eighth
chapter is thus introduced: "Consternation of
France and Europe ;" and it contains details of
the grief and dismay of the Parisians; the affec-
tionate gatherings and plaintive chorus near the
royal palace; the concourse of condolers and ga-
zers about the coffin exposed in state ; the loyal
visits of Deputies and public functionaries of every
description; the numberless impassioned address-
es from every district of the Provinces-precise-
ly what we now see and hear. The chapter con-
cludes with this phrase: "There was nothing
foreseen, nothing prepared, nothing concerted in
the universal mourning; it was all France that
bewailed." It would be difficult to count the
biographical sketches of the Duke of ORLEANS
that are already hawked. Yesterday, in Paris, 1
was attracted to the windows of the print shops
by graphic engravings of the death-bed scene in
the grocer's back room. Some sentences of the
final chapter of the volume which I have just ci-
ted possess, also, interest for the present period,
if not all the applicableness for his juncture, which
the author really imagined. They are these:
"Let us educe a salutary lesson from the common
calamity. There grows behind us a generation
impatient of all yokes or restraints, and inimical
to Kings; it dreams of a republic, and is, never-
Stheless, utterly incapable, from its habits and
training, of republican virtue. It pushes for-
ward; it presses hard upon us; it closes about
'us; it will soon take our place. BONAPARTE
'could have subdued by crushing it; by sending
'it to perish on fields of battle; by setting it in
delusive chase of the phantom of glory, in order
to prevent it from pursuing that of liberty. But
we Bourbon royalists, we have only two barriers
to oppose to the follies of young France; one, legi-
'timacy escorted by all the remembrances envi-
'roned by the majesty of ages; the other, repre-
'sentative monarchy founded on large land-pro-
'prietorship, defended by a vigorous aristocracy,
'fortified by all moral and religious influences.
'Whoever does not perceive this truth, sees no-
'thing, and runs towalds the abyss. Legitimacy
'is the life of France; no other kind of govern-
ment is permanently possible ; no other would
Shave the semblance of duration ; no other could
have a tolerable existence of a few years, or even
a few months." This, with much more admoni-
tion and prediction of the kind, was penned
thirteen years ago, when the gifted Viscount was
not only haunted', as he has been ever since, by the spectre
of universal democracy, but apprehended such extremes or
plunges in the Bourbon rule as must beget a revolution like
that of July. With regard to the present aspect of the poli-
tical horizon, the organs of the opposition called dynastic
warn the people that all is abyss except the constitutional
smonarchy. TheLondon editors and their Paris correspondents,
Tory, Whig, and Radical, concur in representing the state
of things produced by the death of the Duke of ORLEANS as
pregnant with danger to the French monarchy, and to the
institutions of the country ;" and one London oracle croaks
in these accents of panic:
"The unhappy death which has just plunged the Royal
Family of France in grief is no common death. The des
troyer has selected a choice victim, and stricken through his
aide a heavy blow at the peace of Europe. That the greater
continental Powers may possibly control the troubles ot
France is probable, but it will be at the expense of no small
heart-burning, and no trifling efforts. French passion and
French pride will take the field at once against all open in-
terference. Yet, without some such interference, the deatt
of the present monarch of the French nation will be 'ne sig-
nal, not for a new revolution, but a new series o1hevolutions,
and another continental war."
As the British and French nations and Governments ar-
pear to me to be circumstanced at this time, the former are
more exposed to revolutionary troubles than the latter. I
will add, that republicanism has rather lost than gained
ground in Francesince CHATEAUBRIAND predicted the earliest
downfall to any other polity than the Legitimate; but these
are points which, to be properly treated, would exact more
expansion than I now intend. Loums PaItaPPE is not dead :
he may live and retain his faculties a lustre or two more:
although since the 17th inst. the regency question has been
agitated in the journals without reserve and from the impulses
of party spirit, and both Legitimists and revolutionary Radi-
cals are animated with fresh hopes and hardihood, yet the
Chambers will probably repress or counteract the whole evil by
the adoption of such a regency bill and concomitant measures
as saall in fact prove secondd election of the family of Louis
PEIIIPPE," and a consolidation of the monarchy of July. 1
cannot discover, in the mass of the nation, or in the parties
that form the largest and strongest sections of the Opposition,
the least proneness to subversion or convulsion. A leading
jonrnal of the Left observes: "We may and will now con-
'vince Europe that we are determined to keep our institu-
'tios. and dynasty." Another: France is not on the eve
'of a catastrophe, but remains mistress of her own destiny.
SWe have to fill up a vacuum already foreseen in the insti-
stution of the monarchy. Thiu necessity has become imper-
'ative by the lamented death of the Duke of ORLEANS ; but
'neither the dynasty nor the monarchy is in danger. France
'still wishes to maintain what she established in 1830, and
'she is sufficiently strong to enforce her will."
At the death of LouTs PHILIPPE, near or distant, 1 should
dread more from the excitability of the French temperament
by a shock, by the occurrence of an event generally treated
as portentous or perilous, than from any diffusive readiness
.for disorder and Mhange, or any material difficulty in settling
the Orleans throne and baffling the revolutionary factions.
Much would depend on the character of the Ministry at the
crisis. A national soreness, not yet healed, was inflicted by
the arrogant and sneering paragraphs of the London press
and its Paris correspondents, and the overweening, sarcastic
phrases of Lord PALMzBsToN, in relation to the exclusion of
France from the treaty of July, 1840. Now, the old wound
is aggravated by the London sinister predictions and injuri-
oust n peesentatione of the French people. The journals of
Paris and the provinces bring whatever is most offenasive from
that source to the knowledge of bthe whole body of the French
leaders, who chiefly determine the opinions and feelings of
their countrynen. Yesterday in every Paris journal we had,
with an invidious comment, the remark of the London Morn-
ing Chronicle that the question of a Regency for France is
one in which not merely England but all Europe is too deep-
ly interested to allow it to be confined to France alone. In
like msanner a translation is given of the following sentences
of the same paper, (ef the 18th inst.) which I quote for you
asa specimen of the selfish injustice of the British press:

interest to communicate the same.

REPORTS FROM COMMITTEES.
By Mr. EVANS, from the Committee on Finance : The
bill to carry into effect the treaty with the Wyandott Indians.
Also, from the same Committee; An adverse report on the
bill to authorize the erection of certain public buildings in
By Mr. BERRIEN, from the Committee on the Judiciary:
A bill to authorze the establishment of a United States dis-
trict court in the city of Wheeling, in Virginia.
Mr. MERRICK submitted the following resolution:
Resolved, That the President of the United States be request-
ed to commmni'.ate any detailed statement he may have caused to
be prepared at the Treasury Department since the passage by
Congress of the bill to provide revenue from imports, showing
the amount of revenue which would have been produced by said
act if it had become a law, together with a brief explanation ol
the data.and reasons on which the estimate was founded which
may have accompanied the same.
Mr. EVANS thought the whole call improper; and if the
President sought to influence legislation by having recourse
to the estimates furnished by subordinates of his Department,
he (Mr. E.) would not lend his sanction to any such pro-
c ending. Whether the estimates in question had been made
either by the desire of the President or by Executive dicta-
lion, was the same to him. It was well known that these
same estimates had said the bill in question would not yield
$12,000,000 of revenue, when the proper officer, the Secre-
tary of the Treasury, had said it would yield $27,000,000.
If any information of the kind was to be furnished, let it
emanate from the law officer of the Treasury, and not from
the President's subordinates. Thire President was not to fur-
nish his estimates to influence the action of Congress, and
he should object to the consideration of the resolution.
Mr. MERRICK did not desire to be understood as inti-
mating that the estimates alluded to showed any authority or
binding force. It had been intimated that such estimates had
been made, and if so, he thought it very desirable for the Se-
nate to be possessed of them. These estimates had been care-
fully and diligently prepared by the orderordesiieofthe Exec-
utive. If, as suggested by the Senator, the gall should be made
on the Secretary of the Treasury, its very object would be
defeated. The Secretary of the Treasury was not here, and
if he were, he was physically incapacitated for attending to the
business. The estimates were important at the present time ;
and if they afforded any information, he thought there was
no Senator but would be glad to receive it,
The reception having been objected to, the resolution was
laid over one day under the rule.
The Senate then took up the bill to regulate the taking of
testimony in certain cases, and fur other purposes.
The question pending being on the amendment of Mr.
BERmuEN, to come in at the first section of the bill:
1 Provided further, That nothing in the first section of this act,
and the second section of 'he act therein referred to, shall be held
to extend to the election of any person who shall he chosen a Rep-
resentative to the 28th Congress in any State in which, by the
laws of such State, the election of Representatives to Congress is
required to be made by general ticket, and where the election has
been held, or may be held, before the regular session of the Le-
gislature, according to the act entitled an act providing for the ap-
po-tionm ent of Representatives among the several States according
to the sixth census."
Mr. ARCHER moved to amend the amendment, by insert-
ing at the close of the amendment the following :
Unless the Governor of any State shall, before the time ap-
pointed by law for holding such elections therein, by his proclama-
tion postpone the same until after the next meeting of the Legisla-
This bill led to ant animated discussion, in which Messrs.
ARCHER, BERRIEN, KING, WRIGHT, and others
participated, when the question was taken on the amendment
to the amendment, and decided in the affirmative, as follows:
YEAS-Messrs. Archer, Bates, Berrien, Clayton, Conrad,
Crals, Crittenden, Dayton, Evans, Graham, Mangum, Miller,

Mr. ALLEN then moved to amend the amendment by
striking out all after the words twenty-eighth Congress,"
en which he demanded the yeas and nays.
The question having been put, it was decided in the nega-
tive, as follows:

Mr. K ING then moved to amend the amendment, by strik
ing out the words required to be elected by general ticket," and
inserting according to the existing laws ofsuch State." The
question having been put on the amendment to the amend-
ment, it was decided in the negative by precisely the same
vote as above, and hence the yeas and nays are not repeated.
The question was then taken on the amendment as amend-
ed, and decided in the affirmative, as follows :

The debate was further continued on this bill; and while
Mr. WALKER was speaking the joint resolution from the
House, fixing the day of adjournment on Monday, the 29th
instant, was announced; when-
Mr. ALLEN asked Mr.W. to give way, with a view to take
up and adopt the joint resolution fixing the day of adjourn-
ment on Mon'ay next.
Mr. WALKER gave way for that purpose.

and decided in the negative, as follows:

The debate on the bill was further continued, and various
other amendments proposed, some of which were adopted and
others rejected, and the bill was then reported to the Senate
and ordered to a third reading.
Mr. EVANS, from the Committee of Conference, on the
part of the Senate, to whom was referred the disputed points
between the two Houses in relation to the contingent appro-

Mr; TALLMADGE was not prepared to vote on the re-
solution. The revenue bill yet remained to be disposed of,
and it was possible it might be prepared within that time,
(the 29th instant,) but it would be the wiser and better course

control, and after they had got through the revenue bill, which
might take them some four or five days to perfect, they could
then take it up. He would, therefore, move to lay it on the

they might go home.
Mr. TALLMADGE did not despair of being able to pass
the revenue bill within a short period.
The question was then taken on laying the resolution on
the table, and decided in the affirmative as follows:

The Senate, on motion of Mr. BENTON, proceeded to
the consideration of Executive business, and, after some time
spent therein, adjourned.
The revenue bill was reported last evening, with amend-
ments, just as the Senate came out of Executive session, but
no action was had thereon.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The Journal of yesterday was read and approved.
Mr. GWIN moved that the House resolveitself into Com-
mittee of the Whole on the state of the Union with a view
to take up the bill for the relief of Gun. Andrew Jackson.
And, in order 10to test the question whether the bill was to be
acted on or not, he would call the yeas and nays.
The SPEAKER said that a majority could go into Com-
mittee, but a vote of two-thirds would be required to take up
a particular bill.
Mr. COWEN desired to offer a resolution authorizing the
Committee of Claims to employ a clerk during the recess of
Mr. TALIAFERRO asked that, by general consent, cer-
tain Senate bills on the Speaker's table might be taken up
and referred, as otherwise they could not be acted on.
Mr. BARNARD moved that the House resolve itself in-
to Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, with
a view to take up the remedial justice bill.
Some conversation followed, and the House did not seem
to know what it would do, and what it would not do.
Mr. BOTTS asked leave to offer the following resolution:
Resolved, That the Committee of Ways and Means be instruct-
ed to report a bill limiting the rate of discount at which the loan
shall be taken authorized by the act of 15th April last, and an
explanatory provision denying the construction put on the loan
bill at the Treasury Department relative to the issue of stock to
perform the functions of Treasury notes. Also, that they be in-
structed to bring in a bill repealing the proviso to the 24th section
of the distribution bill passed on the day of September last.
Mr. BARNARD objected.
Mr. BOTTS moved that the rules of the House be sus-
pended for the purpose of receiving and considering the reso-

So, two-thirds not voting in the affirmative, the rules were
not suspended, and the resolution was not received.
Mr. CAVE JOHNSON asked leave to offer the follow-
ing resolution, which was read for information:
Resolved, That it shall be the duty of the Secretary of the
Navy to report to Congress the first week in January of each
year, or as early thereafter as practicable, the amount of expen-
ditura of each vessel for the preceding year, including all ex-
penses in repair thereof, and for the armament or equipment there-
of, and all expenses in keeping her afloat, ifafloat, or in dock if lying
up. Also, the number of days during the year that each ship was
actually at sea; and that a similar report of each ship hereafter
built or purchased be made, so as to exhibit an annual and aggre-
gate account of the cost and expenses of each ship and the ser-
vice rendered by it to the country; and also specifying the
amount for materials as well as the amount for labor in the build-
ing or repairing of each ship.
Mr. MALLORY objected on the ground that it was eno
tirely impracticable, as the Department was at present organ-
ized, to answer it.
Mr. CAVE JOHNSON, remarking that it was impossi-
ble to legislate unlerstandingly without the information con-
templated in the resolution, moved that the rules be suspend-
ed for the purpose of receiving and considering it.
Which motion, by ayes 88, noes 36, was agreed to.
And the question being on the adoption of the resolution-
Mr. C. JOHNSON demanded the previous question.
Mr. STANLY suggested to Mr. J. so to modify his re-
solution as to authorize the Secretary of the Navy to employ
additional force, if necessary, to the accomplishment of the
Mr. J. declined so to modify the resolution.
Mr. KING was understood to suggest a similar modifica-
tion, on the ground that, unless the bill fur the reorganiza-
tion of the Naiy Department should pass, additional force
would be necessary.
Mr. J. still declined to modify.
Mr. CHARLES BROWN suggested a substitute or modi-
fication which Mr. J. also declined to accept.
The demand for the previous question was seconded.
And the main question (on the resolution) was ordered to
be now taken.
Mr. GUSHING asked to be excused from voting, on the
ground that the House had not the power to pass, by a sole
resolution, a permanent regulation of the navv.
Whether Mr. C. was excused or not, the Reporter cannot

Mr. PROFFIT moved a reconsideration of the vote.
Mr. P. opposed the resolution on the ground of the time,
expense, and labor which the preparation of the details would
Mr. CALHOUN also opposed the resolution in its present
form, on the score of the time it would take, and because its
adoption was unnecessary. And he suggested to Mr. CAVE
JOHNSON so to modify the resolution as to call for the sub
stance of it-i. e. for the amount of the annual expenditure of
each ship, and for what purposes.
Mr. C. BROWN insisted that the information could be
obtained without difficulty, and that it was such as ought to
be furnished to this House.
Mr. HOLMES opposed the resolution, and Mr. SPRIGG
Mr. CAVE JOHNSON desired to modify the resolution
(which, however, could only be done by general consent;
and, objection being made, the modification was not made.)
Mr. FESSENDEN suggested to Mr. CAVE JoHNsoN two
modifications which, if made, Mr. F. thought, would obviate
all objection to the resolution, and to which he hoped there
would be no objection. The first was to modify the resolu-
tion so as to make it read a statement of the amount of ex-
penditure of each vessel, &c."-and the second to insert the
words so far as practicable."
Mr. CAVE JOHNSON, by general consent, modified the
resolution so as to embrace the first modification; but decli-
ned the second,
Mr. ADAMS, in reply to the objection of Mr. CUSHINGo
pointed to a sole resolution adopted by the House in 1791,
calling on the Treasury Department for certain statements
and information, which had regularly been furnished under
that resolution, and expressed himself in favor of the adoption
of the present.
On motion of Mr. LINN, the motion to reconsider was
laid on the table.
THE STATE OF THE UNION.
Mr. W. COST JOHNSON, of Marylandl, laid on the
table a memorial signed by sundry citizens of Pennsylvania,
praying Congress to raise more money by imposts-to issue
two hundred millions of Government stock upon the faith of
the nation, and to divide the same among all the States, and
to pledge the proceeds of the sales of the public lands for the
redemption of said stock.
ADJOURNMENT OF CONGRESS.
Mr. BOTTS asked leave to offer the following resolution,
which was read for information :
Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate
concurring, That the Speaker of the House and the Presi-
dent of the Senate adjourn the two Houses of Coigresa sine die

Mr. PROFFIT objected.
Mr. BOTTS moved that the rules be suspended for the
purpose of receiving and considering the resolution; and with
a view, he said, to know who would take the responsibility of
protracting the session, demanded the yeas and nays, which
were ordered; and, being taken, resulted as follows:

THE TARIFF BILL, No. III.
Knowing the anxiety of our readers to learn what
is likely to be the fate of the Tariff Bill, which has
passed the House of Representatives and is now
before the Senate, we have made such inquiries as
we hoped might enable us with some certainty to
foretel it. In this hope, however, we are baffled.
No man can tell what its fate will be. So far from
its passage in the Senate being beyond doubt, as
stated in some of the papers in the cities east of us,
it is, we are sorry to say, a matter of exceeding
doubt. And, should it pass the Senate with amend-
ments, (which some suppose may be the case,) the
state of the vote in the House of Representatives
yesterday on the proposition to end the session on
Monday next (Tariff or no Tariff) augurs rather
unfavorably for the fate of the bill when returned
with the amendments for reconsideration by the
House of Representatives.
It is prophesied by some, that, should the Senate
non-concur in the proposition by the other House to
adjourn on Monday, so many Members will depart
from Washington on that day as to leave one or the
other House without a quorum to do business. We
trust not. Let things be done in order and with
dignity. There is much yet to do. Let all be
done that can.
Major General SCOTT has thought it proper to
reply, by the subjoined Letter, to a calumny which
the official paper has directed against him ; and
although, in our opinion, he has condescended too
far, yel, hlie having done so, it seems lo be due to
him to place his reply before our readers:
WAR OFFICE, AuGusT 23,1842.
To the Editor of the Madisonian:
Sta : I perceive in the Madisonian of this morning that I
am charged with being opposed to the treaty between the
United States and Great Britain, to which the Senate is un-
derstood to have given its advice and consent a few days ago,
Of the terms of that treaty I am entirely ignorant except
through contradictory rumors, and have had neither the in-
fluence nor the desire to interfere with the action of the Sen-
ate upon it, always contenting myself with saying that I pre-
ferred an honorable peace even to a successful war.
Hoping that you will take pleasure in correcting the injus-
tice you have done me,

A small but interesting volume, with the above title, has
just appeared from the New York press, and is for sale at the
bookstores in this city. The subjects treated of possess at
this time a more than usual interest from our own relations
with the Mexican Republic and our sympathy f~r the rising
States of Texas and Yucatan. From a hasty examination
we are satisfied that the work is from the pen of a gentleman
intimately acquainted with the subjects of which he treats,
and who has access to the most authentic sources of infor-
mation. The narrative is drawn up in a clear and vigorous
style, and is accompanied by a new and accurate colored map
of Mexico and Texas, which, although small, is believed to
present a more correct view of the country than any one
The Boston Transcript says the passage money of the
steamer Britannia on her recent voyage to that city from Li-
verpool will exceed $15 000, which, with $8,000, the proper
tion applicable to this voyage of the 80,000 per annum paid
to this line by the British Government, will amount t,
$23,000, exclusive of receipts for freight and specie. The
nelt earnings of the voyage must amount to $11,000, over
and above all expenses.
The last Russian papers announce officially the recognition
of the present Government of Portugal by the Emperor of
Russia, and the appointment of Count STROANOFFr as Rus

A Washington correspondent of the New York Union
gives an account of the doings at Washington, which wt
beg leave to discredit. The writer says that members are
daily leaving in disgust, that "knives are drawn," "fist.
doubled with threatening gestures," and the most ungentle
manly language is made use of. This we cannot have faith
in, and if incorrect, the statement must be regarded as infa-
mously libellous. Whether true or false, it should not be
permitted to pass in silence. If correct, which we do not
believe, the guilty members should be held up to the indignao-
tion of the country; and if incorrect, the national character
should be vindicated from so foul a stigma. We call the at-
tention of our Washington contemporaries tothe statement,
which will be found in the New York Union of Friday last,
and ask them either to affirm or refute it.-Phila. Inquirer.
We rather think that the correspondent of the Union
must have seen double when be saw "fists doubled," and
that the knives" that he saw drawn" must have been
of the same spectral character as the weapon which met
the vision of Macbeth when he clutched at the air-drawn
dagger. For our part, we have not been in the way of hear-
ing or seeing any such doings, though we have frequently
been present at the sittings of both Houses of Congress.
Some members may, perhaps, be said, when greatly excited,
to speak daggers;" but they have never, within our know-
ledge, gone so far as to "use them."-Nat. Intelligencer.
Captain JaMEs RAYNOiD, an officer of the Revolation, died
in Westchester, (N. Y.) on the 9th instant, aged 88 years.
But five days previous to his death he was actively engaged
in his meadow securing his hay, on which occasion, it is said,
he performed as much at mowing as any of his ablest laborers.
Another soldier of the Revolution, JOHN CL'IFFORD, died

Gen. JOHN K. SMITH, another patriot of the Revolution

HOARDIO MoGNtv.-- n exchange paper says a deposit was
lately made in the United States Mint of $2,513 47 in old
United States gold coins, all dated forty or more years back.
The impressions on the various coins was as distinct as when
first issued from the mint-showing that they had been kept
out of circulation all that time. At simple interest this sum,
in forty years, would have amounted to $8,546. At com-
pound interest to $25,8521 Every eagle might have been
worth to the owner one hundred and three dollars now, in-
steading of ten. And yet, notwithstanding the folbly of
hoarding specie, as thus shown, there is no doubt but that an
immense amount in this country is locked up in this way-of
no use to the owner or the community.

' CREDIT OF THE UNITED STATES ABROAD.
FROM THE BALTIMORE AMERICAN OF YESTERDAY.
The obligations of the General Government to
sustain the credit of the States, as essential to the
preservation of its own, are strongly demonstrated
by every day's experience. The arrival of Mr.
ROBINSON in England, charged by the Government with the
duty of negotiating a loan if he can, has called forth from the
London press a series of comments, animadversions, and sar-
casms which are any thing but complimentary to our coun-
try. With the facts before their eyes of repudiation perpe-
trated in some of the States, and of failures to pay instalments
of interest due on their debts in others, the English journal-
ists throw taunts and reproaches in the face of the Federal
Government, and call it unprecedented impudence that an
agent should be officially sent among the ill-treated creditors
themselves to borrow money. They know that the same
people support the General Government and the State Gov-
ernments-minor distinctions they care nothing for. If con-
tracts are not met by the people of the States, how can it be
expected that they will be met by the people of the Union
composed of those States I
Another cause of the bad credit of the Government is no
doubt to be found in the fact that no provision has been made
to secure the repayment of a loan, or the payment even of the
annual interest. The Government has nut the means of de-
fraying its own expenses. It is living beyond its income;
there is some grave doubt whether it has any income. At all
events, every day sinks the Treasury more and more deeply
in debt. The efforts of Congress to provide revenue have
been rendered abortive by the President's veto; and there is
no telling when the inconsistent and wavering mind of the
Executive will permit any thing like an efficient system to be
As a specimen of the style of the English journals we give
the following remarks of a London print on the occasion of
Mr. ROBINMsoN's mission to that country:
For unmitigable, irredeemable, bold-faced impudence, it
is considered to out-Herod all Jonathan's previous acts, cou-
pled as it is with an account, by the self-same ship that
conveyed the agent to our shores, of the defalcation of six or
seven of the federal States in the payment of the dividends
on the money they have borrowed, due on the 1st instant.
To make a proposition to borrow in England, upon any
terms under such circumstances, would appear to be a pre-
ssmption on a degree of gullibility calculated to outrage all
common sense; but there is a wheel within a wheel upon
this matter into which a little daylight must be thrown. Be
it known, then, that the greater portion of the bonds of the
bankrupt American States are in the hands of English capi-
talists. It is further perfectly understood that the only
chance of their getting out of the difficulty is to endeavor to
prop up the credit of the American Government, which will
give a tone and stimulus to the State bonds, under the in-
fluence of which stimulus they will be enabled to cut and
run by saddling them on smaller and credulous capitalists
anxious to find out means to increase their incomes. By
this class of holders of American bonds the Government of
that country have been encouraged to make the present
experiment, and with the promise of the indirect and casual
support of the said capitalists, if it is not convenient or suit-
able for them to appear in the matter openly. Feelers will
be immediately thrown out to see how the pulse of the Pub-
lic beats; and, if a favorable impression can be made, the
connexion will be avowed, and contracts entered into. The
great difficulty of finding secure channels of investment in
this country at presbnt, except at a very low rate of remu-
neration, for capital, is believed to afford a chance of, to a
certain extent, overcoming the objections that may be made
on the score of American integrity and want of stability in
the Government, waiving the other point, and giving her
statesmen credit for honesty of intention. If the ice can
once be broken under any thing like favorable circumstances,
we shall have abundance of specious plausibilities put forth
on the vast extent of American resources, backed by asseve-
rations that the tribulations they have lately gone through
have fully convinced them that honesty is the beet policy,
and that they will in future faithfully discharge all their
pecuniary obligations, It will, however, be the duty of the
public press to lay the case naked and bare, as the facts jus-
tify, without exaggeration or embellishment; and, if dupes
can be found to plunge into new difficulties with their eyes
open, they have only themselves to blame."
OFFICIAL TERMINATION OP TH'E WAR.
HEAD QUARTERS. MtIttAaY DEPARTMENT No. 9.
[Order No. 28.] Cedar Keys, August 14, 1842.
I. It is hereby announced that hostilities with the Indians
within this Territory have ceased. Measures are taken to
pass the few remaining within certain limits-those in the far
south immediately, those west of the Suwannee in a few days,
who, meantime there is every reasonable assurance, will con-
duct inoffensively if unmolested in their haunts. The lands
thus temporarily assigned as their planting and hunting
grounds are within the following boundaries, to wit: From
the mouth of Talakchopco, or Pease Creek, up the left bank
of that stream to the fork of the southern branch, and follow-
ing that branch to the head or northern edge of Lake Istok-
poga; thence down the eastern margin of that lake to the
stream which empties from it into the Kissimmee river, fol-
lowing the left bank of said stream and river to where the
latter empties into Lake Okee-cho-hee; thence due south
through said Lake and the Everglades to Shark river, follow-
ing the right bank of that river to the Gulf; thence along the
Gulf shore (excluding all islands between Punta Rossa and
the head of Charlotte Harbor) to the place of beginning.
The foregoinig arrangements are in accordance with the in-
structions of the President of the United States.
II. With a view to economy and convenience of supply,

In both schools of languages are also taught the literature of the
respective i, ages, and ancient and modern history; in the
school of mto ematica is included mixed mathematics ; in that
of engineering, mineralogy, and geology i in that of moral philo-
sophy, belles letters, logic, and political economy; and in that of
law, besides municipal law in all its branches, the law of nature
and nations, the scene of government, and constitutional law.
To be admitted into this Institution, the applicant must be six-
teen years of age ; but the faculty may dispense with this requi-
sition in favor of one whose brother is a student.
Every student is free to attend the schools of his choice ; but
if he be under twenty-one years of age, he shall attend at least
three, unless authorized by his parent or guardian in writing, or
by the faculty for good cause, to attend a less number.
All students under the age of twenty-one years are required to
board Within the precincts.
By a resoluttion of the faculty ministers ofthe gospel and young
men preparing ftr the ministry may attend any of the schools of
the University without the payment of fees to the professors.
'he enactments which lately required students to wear a pre-
scribed uniform have been suspended.
Every sludeni resident within the precincts must, on matricu-
laihn, deposue with the patron all the money, bills, drafts, &c.
undfr his control, intended to defray his expenses while at the
University, or on his return thence to his home ; and the amount
so deposited must be sufficient to pay his fees to professors, dor-
mitory rent, for use of the public rooms, three months' board, a
contingent fee to cover fines and assessments, and to purchase the
text-books, &c. he may want at the commencement. All funds
subsequently received by him must be deposited with the patron
who has charge of his disbursements; and, upon all deposits, a
charge of 2 per cent. commission is authorized.
The act of the Legislature, prohibiting merchants and others
under severe penalties from crediting students, will be strictly
enforced. The license to contract debt, which the chairman of
the faculty is authorized to grant, is confined (except where the
parent or guardian shall otherwise, in writing, request) to cases
of urgent necessity ; and these, it is hoped, that parents and
guardians will, as far as possible, prevent from arising, by the
timely supply of the requisite funds.
Religious services are performed at the University every Sun-
day by the chaplain, who is appointed in turn from the four princi-
pal denominations of. the State.
The expenses of the session of nine months are as follows:
Board, washing, lodging, and attendance $110
Rent of dormitory $16 ; for half, if occupied by two 8
'Use of public rooms and matriculation fee 16
Puel and candles, estimated at 20
Fees, if only one professor be attended, $60; if two, to
each professor $30; if more than two, to each 625, say 75
Total, exclusive of clothes, books, and pocket-money 228
In the school of law there is an extra fee of $20, payable by
students attending the senior class.
The allowance for clothes is limited by the enactment to $100,
and for pocket-money to $45.

1 EDICAL DEPARTMENT.-The planof instruction
l in thia department of the University presents peculiarities
to be found in no other School of Medicine in the Union. The
Lectures commence on the first of October, and terminate on
the 4ih ,.f July ensuing.
Owins ia the length of the session, which embraces a period
of ntint months, three Professors are enabled to perform all the
duties which iu other medical institutions are usually assigned to
six; and the students are seldom required to attend more than
two lectures on the same day. By this arrangement, the s u-
dlents have an opportunity of being well grounded in Anatomy,
Physiology, and other elementary branches of medici science,
before they investigate their applications in connexion with the
study of the Practice of Medicine and Surgery.
Immediately before each lecture, the students are subjected to
a lull and rigid examination on the preceding lecture, or on por-
ti,.ns of approved text-books. It is apparent that the plan, of
which the outlines have been briefly stated, is one which allows
the student to commence, as well as to complete, his medical
stuJiS in this institution ; and presents a happy combination of
the advantages of the sys em of instruction by private pupilap e
and that of public lectures.
Any person of approved moral conduct may offer as a candi-
date, and receive the degree of M. D. without reference to the
time he has been engaged in the study of medicine, or of joining
the school, provided he undergoes, in a satisfactory manner, the
various examinations prescribed by the enactments. The Pro-
S John P. Emmet, M. D., Professor of Chemistry, Pharmacy,
and Ma'erii Medics.

part of which time I acted as President of the Board of Trustees,

rection by railways or other improved roads. Its healthfulness
is proverbial, and the moral and religious character of Its popula-
tion will compare well with that ofauy other community. Nothing
is wanting, it is confidently believed, to ensure at all times a,, ex-
tensive and productive patronage to the school butan energetic and
competent teacher. One of this character, to be associated on
equal terms with the present incumbent, will receive a fair salary
the first year, with every prospect of increase. The next ses-
sion will commence on the first Monday in September, and appli-
cants ought to present themselves before that day. Letters di-
rected to me will receive attention, but the candidate had better
visit the place and confer personally with the Board of Trustees.
While Congress continues in session reference for further infor-
mation may be had to Mr. Barton, the Representative of this dis.
trict, and to the Virginia Delegation generally.

'|0 THE CITIZENS OF THE DISTRICT.-
I The deservedly high reputation of his Vegetable Anti-Bil-
ious Pills has induced Dr. PETERS to offer to the citizens of this
District his celebrated MEDICATED LOZENGES, with the ut-
at confidence that they will be found in all respects the most
desirable medicines now in use. They are cheap, convenient,
pleasant to the taste, and more efficacious than any other prepa-
rations. You have here the prescription of an eminent graduate
of Yale College and the medicine besides for 25 cents.
Try them when you are ailing, and you will say the praise be-
stowed by all who have used them is well merited.
PETERS'S COUGH LOZENGES
Are now rapidly superseding all other preparations for the re-
lief of coughs, colds, asthma, hooping cough, catarrh, tightness
of the ehest, bronchitis, and similar pulmonary affections. Taken
in season they infallibly prevent consumption, the most fatal dis-
ease of the age. No other medicine makes such astonishiingcures.
PETERS'S WORM LOZENGES
Are acknowledged by the faculty to be the mostscientific and
successful preparation for the destruction of worms ever offered
to the public.
Worms cannot exist in contact with these lozenges. We say to
parents, do not be gulled into the use of specifics prepared by ig-
norant quacks, when you have a pleasant anl sure medicine pre-
pared by one who has made his profession the study of his whole
PETERS'S CORDIAL OR CAMPHOR LOZENGES
A e a specific for the relief of nervous or sick headache, low-
ness of spirits or melancholy, languor and debility, either from
previous disease or too free living; tremors, spasm of the sto-
mach, irritability of the nerves, hysterical affections, drowsiness
cholera morbus, sense of fatigue, and palpitation of the heart.
From their efficacy in the relief of headache, they are called by
man the headache lozenge.
DR. PETERS'S VEGETABLE PILLS.
Only six years have now elapsed since the introduction of this
valuable medicine, and in that short time they have become the fa-
vorite of all classes, from the highest functionary to the humblest
citizen. To the medical faculty, as well as to all who have used
them, we refer for proof of their extraordinary virtues.

SFOR SALE OR RENT.-That commodious
h brick dwelli;ng-house, with store-house, of like material,
JIinice-house, carriage-houses, extensive stables, and gar-
den attached, centrally situated in the manufacturing village ol
Oceoquan, Virginia. Also, near the village, a compact fitrmu of%
100 acres, well enclosed, in good cultivation-a portion of which
is in very lucrative meadow.
The town of Occoquan is proverbial for its salubrity and ro-
mantic location-is at the head of tide water, on a beautiful and
navigable stream bearing the same name, and is distant from the
Potomac five miles-is twenty-two miles south of this city on the
Great Southern Mail route. In the Winter teaseon, the Mail
stages and all other travelling conveyances are obliged to pass
directly through the town, rendering it a very eligible situation
for a hotel.
In a mercantile point of view, there are certainly very few,
if any, country places where a more profitable and satisfactory
business can be done, as the extensive purchases of wheat and
sales of wood circulate large sums of money.
To a gentleman desirous of blending the vocations of farmer
and merchant, this property presents quite a temptation, and
would be sold on pleasing terms, or leased for a term of years,
or would bo exchanged for property in this city. Apply to Mrs,
Maty Cleary, living on the premises, or to

NE HUNDRED DOLLARS REWARD.-Ran-
away on the night of the sixth of this month, my slave man,
by name ISAAC DORSEY, aged about twenty eightyears. The
said slave has an indelible mark on the left side of the head,
on or about the temple, caused by a burn ; his ears are pierced for
earrings. He is about five feet nine or ten inches high ; his
clothing cannot be described ; he is civil when spoken to. The
above slave has a father living in Montgomery county. lie is also
well acquainted in Fredericktown and county.
At the same time, a slave named JOSEPH LEE, the property
of Mr. Griffith Coombe, about 22 years of age, 5 feet 8 or 10
inches high, neither stout nor thin. He was dressed in a blue
cloth frock coat and linen pantaloons, is accustomed to the care
of horses, is ci\il when spoken to. The last named slave has
probably accompanied the first. And the above reward will be
given if they are brought to ashington city and lodged in jail,
that is, if they are taken out of the District of Columbia or Mont-
gomery county ; if taken in Frederick all of the above reward,
and if nearer in proportion.

A WATURAL REMEDY, suited to 'our constitutions,
and competent to the cure of every curable disease, will be
found in the INDIAN VEGETABLE PILLS of the North Ame-
rican College of Health.
These extraordinary Pills are composed of plants whicn grow
spontaneously on our own soil; and are therefore better adapted
to our constitutions than medicines concocted from foreign drugs,
however well they may be compounded; and as the Indian Vege-
table Pills are founded upon the principle that the human body is
in truth subject to but one disease, viz. coirupt humors, and that
said medicine cures this disease on natural principles-by clean-
sing and purifying the body-it will be manifest, that if the con
stitution be not entirely exhausted, a perseverance in their use
according to directions, is absolutely certain to drive disease ot
every name from the body.
When we wish to restore a swamp or morass to fertility, we
drain it of the superabundant waters : in like manner, if we wish to
restore the body to health, we must cleanse it of impurity.
The Indian Vegetable Pills will be found one ol the best, if noi
the very test medicine in the world for carrying out this grand
purifying principle, because they expel from the body all morbid
and corrupt humors, the cause of disease, in an easy and natural
manner; and while they every day give ease and pleasure, dis-
ease of every name is rapidly driven from the body.
The above named Indian Vegetable Pills have been three years
before the American Public; and we can now say, without fear of
contradiction, that of all the various medicines which have here-
tofore been popular, not one has given such universal satisfaction
or obtained such a permanent hold upon the affections of the peo-
ple. Not only do all who use it, invariable experience relief, and
recommend it in the strongest terms, but it has effected some ol
the mast astonishing cures ever performed by medicine.
Hitherto, very few of the numerous testimonials which have
been received in favor of this extraordinary medicine have been
published, as the medicine obtained its present great celebrity
more by its own intrinsic goodness than from extensive advertising.
It has been deemed proper, however, to offer the following opinion
of the public press, together with a few extracts trom letters of
agents, merely to show that the fame of the Indian Vegetable Pill,
is not confined to any one section, but is rapidly extending itself
to every part of the Union.
From the Philadelphia Saturday Evening Post.
THE INDIAN VEGETABLE PILLs.-Wright's Indian Vegetable
Pills are attaining great celebrity in New England as well as other
parts of the United States. The attempt of persons to defraud the
public by the sale of spurious articles meets with general repro
bation. Mr. Wright is an indefatigable business man, and shows
an array of cures by the medicine which warrant confidence in
the virtues of his Indian Vegetable Pills.

mineral preparations of the shops, are better adapted, as a genera
rule, to kill rather than cure the patient; as a matter of course
vegetable medicines are therefore in great request. There art
very many hunmbugs, however, among the latter, and we woulb
advise all those who have the least regard for their health to try
the Indian Vegetable Pills of the North American College o'
Health, sold at 169 Race -treet, Philadelphia, as they are the pre-

INDIAN VEGETABLE PILLE.-Of all the publicly advertised medi-
cines of the day, we know of none that we can more safely recom-
mend for the "ills that flesh is heir to" than the Pills that are sole
at the depot of the North American College of Health, No. 196
Tremont street, Boston.. Several instances we know of where
they are used in families with thie highest satisfaction; and no
longer ago than yesterday we heard an eminent physician ofthe city
recommend them in high terms. There used to be in the commu-
nity a great repugnancme to the use of quack medicines, as they are
all indiscriminately termed, but it was mainly owing to the regu-
lar M. D.'s constantly denouncing them. They ate, however, be-
coming more liberal in this respect, and the consequence is that
good vegetable medicines are now more extensively used than
Extract of a letter from Peter Christ, iUniontotwn, Carroll
county, Maryland, November 17, 1838.
Dear Sir: About two months ago I had business in Baltimore,
and called at your office and bought a few boxes of the Indiau Ve-
getable Pills ; and upon trying them I found them to be far supe-
rior to Pills, or any other medicine I had ever used. I
hail been subject to a cough for five years past, and during the
time have taken a variety of medicines without any relief until I
got the Indian Vegetable Pills, and by taking four doses the cough
began to leave me ; and I now enjoy better health than I have
done for five years past. After I found them to be a valuable me
divine, I immediately sent to Baltimore fora large supply. I have
received so much benefit in using the Indian Vegetable Pills that
I cannot help but recommend them to every invalid I see, and
think so well of the medicine that I have sent two dozen boxes to
mtoy invalid friends in the State of Indiana.
From 0. C. Black, Newt York.
Mr. Win. Wright: Dear Sir: You will please to forward as
soon as possible some of your Indian Vegetable Pills, as we are
al.nost out of the article, and they appear to be getting into gene-
ral use here. We have a great call for the medicine at present,
and those that have used them speak veiy highly of them. One
gentleman attributes his being cured of dropsy to the use of them;
and another has been cued ofdyspepsia solely by the use ofyoua
Indian Vegetable Pills, and is willing you should publish his case
if you think proper. G. C. BLACK,

Extract of a letter from Mr A. Larrimore, Indiana.
Dr. Wright: Dear Sir: Having some knowledge of your most
excellent compound, the Indian Vegetable Pills, and not knowing
how to get a fresh supply, my stock being nearly exhausted, and
wishing always to have them in my family, I take this method
to open a correspondence with you. The pills alluded to are well
thought of here and very much wanted. I wish to make arrange-
ments with you for a constant supply, as I think a very great quan.
tity could be sold in this section of the country.

Mr. W. Wright: Dear Sir: I1 am selling the Indian Vegetable
Pills by the dollar's worth, and at that rate the stock of Pills, left
by your travelling agent, will soon be out.
I am pleased to find they are such readysale. Those who have
used them speak in the highest terms of them. Many have al-
ready found great relief from their use, and when the cures are
finally effected, 1 shall do you the justice to inform you of the
Extract of a letterfrom Washington city.
Mr. Wmin. Wright: Dear Sir: You will have the kindness tc
forward me, as soon as possible, two or three gross of the Indiar
Vegetable Pills. The sales have for the last two months increase
rapidly ; those who buy generally remarking "that they are th'
best pills they have ever used," and my opinion is that they wil-
in a short time supersede all others In this city.
Extract of a letter from Lycoming county, Pa.
Mr. Win. Wright: Dear Sir: On being appointed agents foi
the sale of the Indian Vegetable Pills in this place, we only tool
one gross on trial; but it would have been better if we had taker
halfa dozen gross : for, on a fair trial, they have far exceeded out
most sanguine expectations. In fact so much so that we have beer,
obliged to send to Mr. Zimmerman, at Lancaster, more than t
hundred miles from here, for ten dozen ; but these will last but a
very short time the way we are selling them since they have beer
fairly tested. In the first place, I gave some to our physicians t(
make trial of, since which they have purchased a numberof boxes
and highly approve of them. A few days ago, there was a lady
sent 30 miles to get a box of the pills ; she at the time was very
low and unable to turn herself in bed ; but in two days, as my in
formant says, she was able to help herself.
We could mention many other oases, but deem it unnecessary)
at this time; but would merely say, that as the reason is fast ap-
proaching when there will be a great demand for the Indian Vege-
table Pills, if we could only get a supply of thie medicine, we could
establish other agents, which would be of immense advantage
not only to the North Americanh College of Health, but to the pub-
lic generally. Please let us know your views on the subject, and
any directions relative to the same will be promptly attendedto by,
