P OMONKEY AT PUBLIC SALE.-On the 15th
day of April next, at 12 o'clock, I will expose at public
sale, on the premises, if not sooner disposed of at private sale,
the above described valuable and desirable estate, situated on the
Potomac river, in Charles county, State of Maryland. It is dis-
tant about twenty miles from Washington city, with which it has
daily communication by steamboats. The buildings consist of a
spacious and elegant dwelling house, overseer's bouse, fishing
houses, and all other necessary out-houses for farming purposes.
Pomonkey contains about seven hundred acres, in a good state of
improvement, and adapted to the growth of tobacco, corn, clover,
and other produce, which can be conveniently shipped to the
markets of the District of Columbia and Biltimore. The soil can
be enriched to almost any extent, from its proximity to large marl
banks and marsh mud, and by the use of the fish offal furnished
by the extensive shad and herring fishery attached to the pro-
perty. The fishery, being in the midst of the shad and herring
fisheries, presents a strong inducement to speculators; it is now
under lease until the spring of 1846. Extensive orchards and a
vineyard, with abundance of fruit, render it attractive in summer,
while an abundance of wild fowl (including canvass-back ducks)
supplies the table in winter. This property will be sold a great
bargain, as the subscriber has other pursuits incompatible with
farming, and the sale will be peremptory. On the day of sale
bidders will have an opportunity of seeing the valuable character
of the Potomac fisheries, (which will then be in full operation,)
as well as the beautiful scenery of this ancient family estate, so
attractive in its natural advantages and health of locality. The
terms of sale will be one-third of the purchase money in cash on
the day of sale, and the residue, bearing interest, in one and two
years, to be well secured, and possession given at any time. At
the same time and place I will offer a large and valuable stock of
mules, cows, oxen, sheep, farming utensils, and other personal
property. Persons desirous of seeing the property can go down
and return same day in the steamboat Augusta, Capt. Rogers. A
good title will be made to all the property.

THE TWENTY-FIRST RULE.
In pursuance of notice heretofore given, Mr. GIDDINGS
offered the following amendment to the (old 21st now) 25th
rale of the House:
"Provided nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to
prohibit the reception of any petition, memorial, resolution, or
other paper seeking the repeal of any existing act of Congress
On this amendment Mr. G. demanded the previous ques-
After some conversation on points of order, the question
was taken, and, by ayes 46, noes 77, the House refused to
second the demand for the previous question.
Some further conversation followed on a point of order,
(Mr RAYNER having indicated a motion to lay on the ta-
ble;) after which, the amendment, giving rise to objection or
debate, was laid over.
Mr. MOORE offered the following resolution, and de-
manded the previous question:
Resolved, That the House will proceed to the consideration of
the tariff bill reported by the Committee of Ways and Means on
the 27th day of this month, and that the same be continued from
day to day until finally disposed of.
Mr. WELLER moved that the resolution be laid on the
Mr. CAVE JOHNSON asked the yeas and nays, which
Mr. WELLER withdrew his motion.
Mr. BRODHEAD renewed it.
And the yeas and nays were ordered.
Mr. CAVE JOHNSON desired that the chairman of the
Committee of Ways and Means (Mr. McKAY) would state
whether or not this resolution met with his approbation.
Mr. WINTHROP objected to the inquiry, (other mem-
bers being prohibited from saying any thing.)
Mr. LEWIS hoped the resolution would be so modified as
to read on Monday next.
Strong objections were made, and the resolution was not

So the resolution was not laid on the table.
And the question recurring on the demand for the previous
question, the vote stood, ayes 73, noes 75.
So there was not a second.
Mr. BLACK, of Georgia, offered an amendment, which,
however, he withdrew.
The resolution, being objected to by Mr. HARDIN and
others, was laid over.
And the House adjourned.

TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1844.
THE NEW TARIFF PROJECT.
We insert to-day, as we find it in the columns of
the Globe, the Bill reported in the House of Repre-
sentatives by the Committee of Ways and Means
to reduce and modify the Tariff of Duties on
We have taken occasion more than once since
the beginning of this Session of Congress to express
the opinion that the existing Tariff would undergo
no modification during the present session. The
report of this amendatory bill in the House of Re-
presentatives does not in the least weaken that
opinion. The benefits of the existing Tariff law,
both to the revenue and the country-through all the
arteries and ramifications of its business and indus-
try-are too wide-spread, and too obvious to every
section of the Union, to admit any probability that
it will be seriously disturbed, so long as results so
beneficent continue to flow from it.
The wisdom of repealing or essentially reduc-
ing the Tariff, under present circumstances, would
be about equal to that of the farmer who would set
fire to his well-filled barn to escape the danger of
a surfeit of prosperity. We do not believe, there-
fore, that those who propose this bill expect it to
pass. For our own part, we regard its introduction
as a measure of propitiation of the Southern part of
the "Democracy;" but we very much doubt whether
a majority even of the House of Representatives
will go so far to propitiate their political friends as
to pass this bill.
We learn from the Baltimore American of yes-
terday that a proposition to hold an Extra Session
of the Legislature on the 1st of June was rejected
in the House of Delegates by 46 votes against 23.
So every thing relating to the State's investment in
the canal and railroads remains in its present posi-
tion for an entire year to come.
We learn further that the bill to provide for a
sale of the bank stock owned by the State, and ap-
pointing a time for the State to commence paying
interest on its bonds, and for funding the interest
unpaid, &c., a measure which was looked to with
great interest by all the creditors of the State, fell
through in the House of Delegates.
All this is inexplicable to persons out of the reach
of the excitement at Annapolis.
A bill had passed the House of Delegates for the
sale of the State's interest in all the works of inter-
nal improvement ; all efforts to amend the bill so
as to provide for the completion oilihe Chesapeake
and Ohio Canal, and for the waiver of the State's
liens on that work, having proved ineffectual. The
Senate, however, rejected the bill on account of its
anomalous character and the insufficiency of time
for its consideration.
THE PEOPLE'S RIGHTS.-This is the name of a
new paper just started in New York. The object
of it seems to be to argue the extreme doctrine of
the right of the people to an equal distribution of
the land. The worthy advocates of this doctrine
do not begin at the beginning of.the principle. Why
nuot first conteud for a oeaual distribution of talents,
-- .-r, lorttiuue and persever-w, i, dr een6omy
among all men ? Why not take Heaven to task at
once for making one man a helpless cripple and
another a Hercules; one an idiot and another a
Homer ; one a Herod and another a Howard ? Why
charge society or its institutions with disparities
which exist by the eternal laws of Providence in
the very nature of the human race ? The world is
always afflicted with the vagaries of fools, who, aim-
ing to be philosophers and teachers, manage to lead
greater fools astray.-Philadelphia Gazette.
We learn from the Providence Journal that the
trial of THOMAS W. DoaRR has been fixed for the
26th of April, the earliest day at which the engage-
ments of the Supreme Court of Rhode Island would
allow the trial to come on.
HARMONY.-The Globe takes occasion, and es-
pecially of late, to flatter itself and its party with
the harmony" that now prevails in the Locofoco
ranks. Now, the Spectator, on the other hand, de-
clares that the course of the Democratic party on
the 21st rule has spread deep dissatisfaction," and
further, that there is also on the tariff, unquestion-
ably, deep distrust and dissatisfaction in and out of
Congress." And although," adds the Spectator,
Sin speaking thus frankly of our party, we suppose
we will offend many of them, it is better for them
to hear the truth, if they will profit by it; and if
they will not profit by it, it is still well that it shall
be spoken for the lesson it inculcates."
This is pretty plain speaking. Besides, we ob-
serve that Oliver Oldschool, of the Lgnited States
Gazette, giving an account of the late caucus of the
Locofoco members of Congress, says that after Mr.
ALLEN, of Ohio, had spoken of the popularity of
Mr. Van Buren and of the enthusiasm in his favor,
Mr. COLQUITT, of Georgia, said, in reply, he had
as yet seen no proof of the popularity of Mr. Van
Buren among the people, nor had it happened to him
to witness the enthusiasm of the people for that man
of which the gentleman from Ohio spoke. Of one
thing he was quite sure, namely, that neither his
popularity nor this enthusiasm had reached Geor-
gia yet, and he could tell the gentleman and his
friends that unless they came forward and sustained
Democratic principles better than they had done
this session, so far from there being enthusiasm, there
would be no union of the party-it could not even
be kept together.-Alex. Gaz.
No reader of this paper can have seen with more pain than
its Editors the appearance in its columns of several articles
of a grossly personal character, which have been published in
it, under the proper names of their authors, within the last
week. The appearance of the first of these articles, in the
form of a Memorial from an Officer of the Navy, was acci-
dental to the extent that, presuming the memorial to be purely
defensive, it was inserted without any knowledge of the par-
ticular contents of it until the Editors read it in print on the
day of its publication. The subsequent publications obtain-
ed a place in these columns as matter of course, the insertion
of the first article having given to the respondent the incon-
testable right of reply, &c. All these articles have been pub-
lished as Advertisements; but, neither in that form, nor in
any other, could such articles knowingly obtain admission
into this paper, except in reply to something already published,
which had, as in this case, entitled a party, considering him-
self aggrieved, to reply through the same medium. Upon
this explanation, the Editors trust that they will stand ex-
cused by their readers for what must certainly have appeared
to them to be a wide deviation from the plan of this paper.
It is confidently hoped that this discussion is now at an end.
THE DOCTOR'S RETORT UPON THE WAnIron.-Zimmer-
man, so distinguished both as a physician and author, was
ordered to attend Frederick the Great in his last sickness.
"I presume," said the King. to him, "you have helped
many a man into another world." Not so many," prompt-
ly replied the physician, as your majesty, nor with so much
honor to myself," ..
THE GIRARD WILL CASE.
We had supposed, until induced to believe other-
wise by a casual remark made to us yesterday, that
every reader of ours had understood, from the semi-
official reports in this paper of the daily transac-
tions in the Supreme Court, that the validity of the
will of Stephen Girard has been elaborately argued
in the Supreme Court at the present term, and de-
cided in favor of the City of Philadelphia, the
general legatee of the Testator. That none of our
readers may remain ignorant of the fact, however,
we thus specially draw their attention to it.
We received, some days ago, from a correspon-
dent at Richmond, an earnest request to publish the
Opinion of the Court in this case. Had it been an
easy matter to obtain it, we should have cheerfully
complied with the request. In old times, the Opin-
ions of that Court, in great cases, have been fre-
quently first published, from the original manuscript,
in the columns of this paper. At the present day,
with perfect propriety, these papers are confided to
the custody of the Clerk of the Court, and copies
of them only can be obtained at an expense which
newspaper proprietors have seldom sufficient motive
The Opinion of the Court in the Girard case
will, however, it is understood, be published in pam-
phlet form by the City of Philadelphia. In that
form, it is presumed, it will be for sale, and our cor-
respondent may be able to supply himself with a
copy of it.
DEFINITION OF "FREE TRADE."
The following extract is from a speech of Mr.
CLAY, delivered in the Senate in 1882, in defence
of the American System. It very clearly defines
free trade, according to the theory of certain
"When gentlemen have succeeded in their design of an
immediate or gradual destruction of the American System,
what is their substitute ? Free Trade! Free Trade! The
call for free trade is as unavailing as the cry of a spoiled
child in its nurse's arms for the moon or stars that glitter in
the firmament of heaven. It never has existed, it never will
exist. Trade implies at least two parties. To be free, it
should be fair, equal, and reciprocal. But if we throw our
ports wide open to the admission of foreign productions, free
of all duty, what ports of any foreign nation shall we find
6pen to the free admission of our surplus produce ? We may
break down all barriers to tree trade on our part, but the work
will not be complete until foreign Powers shall remove theirs.
There would be freedom on one side, and restrictions, prohi-
bitions, and exclusions on the other. The bolts, and the bars,
and the chains of all other nations will remain undisturbed.
It is indeed possible that our industry and commerce would
accommodate themselves to the unequal and unjust state of
things; for such is the flexibility of our nature that it bends
itself to all circumstances. The wretched prisoner incarce-
rated in a jail, after a long time becomes reconciled to his
solitude, and regularly notches down the passing days of his
"'Gentlemen deceive themselves; it is not free trade that
they are recommending to your acceptance. It is, in effect,
the British colonial system that we are invited to adopt; and,
if their policy prevail, it will lead substantially to the recolo-
nization of theee States into the commercial dominion of
Mr. CLAY took his departure from Mobile on
Wednesday last, at four o'clock P. M., for Mont-
gomery. He was to spend a short time at that
pleasant and flourishing town, where great prepara-
tions were making for his reception, and then pro-
ceed on his journey to North Carolina, via Colum-
bus, Augusta, Charleston, &c.
The following is an extract of t A -At A0.",4
Tepic," December 10, 1843, from a gentleman,
a native of this city, just received :
This letter will be taken to the United States
by Mr. HASTINGS, who is on his way home Irom
the OREGON Territory. He gives a very bad de-
scription of that country; in fact, he says that it
is a country that can never be settled by an agri-
cultural people. 1 see that a considerable uproar
is constantly made in the United States about that
'country; but I have seen a great many persons
who have been to that section, and they all coin-
cide in opinion with Mr. HASTINGS. This gen-
Stleman, induced to believe that it was a complete
paradise, took out one hundred and forty settlers
from Missouri; but they all found their way to
SCalifornia. Some of the missionaries have given
a very false account of that country."
UNITED STATES FLYING ARTILLERY.
Many of our citizens yesterday availed themselves
of a remarkably pleasant day to witness the inte-
resting military exercises of the fine company of
United States Horse Artillery, under the command
of Major RINGGOLD, which is temporarily quartered
at the Arsenal in this city. It were needless for us to
say that these exercises, both in the morning and
afternoon, exhibited a degree of skill and disci-
pline highly creditable to the commander, as well as
to his officers and men; and that the celerity and
precision with which were executed the various
evolutions, embracing the whole routine of field
exercise suitable to this arm of the service, were such
as clearly to demonstrate its efficiency, and elicit
the admiration of a great concourse of spectators,
including, in the morning especially, a large number
of the Members of both branches of the National

their country with great indifference and neglect.
If a man is employed to do a certain duty for which
he is to be paid, he cannot expect to evade the per-
formance of that duty. How much more binding
and conscientious is the implied contract between
Congress and its constituency ? No session ought
in fact to be longer than three months; we talk too
much and legislate too much, and always, from pro-
crastination, the great bulk of the business has to be
done in a hurried and negligent manner on the heel
of the session.-New York Sun.
ANOTHER SHOCKING ACCIDENT!
NEW One.ENs, MInce 4.
DREADFUrL EXPLOSION AND Loss op LrsE.-We have no
sooner finished our narrative of one terrible calamity than we
are called upon to record another, which, although not in-
volving so great a loss of human life, is yet sufficiently dread-
ful in its consequences. About five o'clock yesterday even-
ing, while the steam towboat Pilot, Captain Alexander Gow,
was lying at a wood yard, at Gretna, on the other side of the
river, a short distance above the city, her starboard boiler
burst with a tremendous explosion, scattering death and de-
struction around. We have been unable to learn the parti-
culars of this unfortunate accident with exactness, but we
hear that Capt. Gow and his son, and also Mr. Nuckerson,
the chief engineer, as well as seven of the hpnds, were dread-
fully scalded, and that two others jumped overboard and were
drowned. The steamboat Helen, which was passing at the
YOUNG MEN'S WHIG NATIONAL CONVENTION
To the Young Whigs of the United States.
FELLOW-cITrIZENS : The Young Whiga of Baltimore, as-
sembled in Convention, have delegated the undersigned to
solicit, in their name, your attendance at the Young Men's
Whig National Convention of Ratification, to be held in this
city on Thursday, the second of May.
The discharge of this grateful duty requires us to enter
upon no elaborate statement of the reasons which prompt us
to desire your presence. The Presidential canvass has al-
ready been opened before the nation. Already the move-
ments of the people have begun to indicate the profound so-
licitude they feel for the proper decision of the great ques-
tions which it involves. Those questions have been the
subjects of your familiar discussion and anxious thought.
You have nothing to learn as to the political faith you pro-
fess, and nothing can strengthen your conviction of the mo-
mentous extent to which the fortunes of your country depend
upon its successful promulgation. Upon these things, there-
fore, we forbear to dwell.
Four years since your enthusiasm burst forth upon this
spot into aflame, whichwent on burning unto victory. We
call upon you again to light your fires among us, at the altar
of the same patriotism. Now, as then, you have high prin-
ciples to animate your counsels-high aims to consecrate your
action. Embracing in itself all that is comprehensive and
statesmanlike in public policy; all that is thoroughly and
warmly American in scope and spirit; blending all that de-
serves the approbation of the good with all that commands
the favorable judgment of the wise, roua CAUSE has a right
to demand that you should give your energies and thoughts
to its triumph. Upon rzTHE MEN by whom that cause is to be
represented before the country the choice of a National Con-
vention has not, it is true, yet fallen. The public feeling,
however, echoed in a unanimity of acclamation, has left no
doubt that the distinguished citizen has been in fact already
chosen, upon whose genius, and wisdom, and virtue the con
fidence of our party will chiefly rest the hopes of the Repub-
lic. Upon his character comment is useless. It combines
and illustrates all the elements of nobleness which belong to
Sthe American people. The source of our highest pride, it
has been not less the centre of our warmest affection. It was
made for a nation's reverence-it has earned a nation's gra-
titude. Place can lend it no dignity higher than its own.
The office to which Washington gave lustre is the sphere to
which its greatness belongs.
Against our principles, sustained by such a champion,
What opposition do we find arrayed? So far as the discord
which results from unsettled principles and conflicting per-
sonal ambition has permitted any thing like certainty to
spring from the action of our opponents, it seems that they
have nothing to offer but another trial of the same men andti
the same measures already so signally overthrown. What
they can promise to themselves from such a policy, it is not
easy for us to imagine, nor is it needful that we should in-
quire. It may be that their estimate of popular intelligence
and consistency suggests to them, that reprobation by the
people, four years since, furnishes the surest guaranty of the
people's admiration now Perhaps they have some hope
that their champions may gain in sympathy, as political mar-
tyrs, what was denied to them in respect as political saints!
Be that, however, as it may, to them-to us, the revival of
the old war-cry but revives, in tenfold force, every element of
our former resistance. We deem their men and measures
now-as we deemed them when they last received sentence
of condemnation-unworthy the confidence of the country ;
hostile to all that can promote her welfare; dangerous to the
purity and the permanency of her excellent institutions. Four
years cannot have made political corruption less corrupt, nor
political imbecility less imbecile. They are now what they
were before. They can be discomfited now, as they were
routed then Let our fellow Whigs, therefore, apply them-
selves to the task. It is easy, but it is of solemn import.
Let the young men of the nation gather themselves together
The country has need of their united deliberations.
We have lately exerted ourselves, not unsuccessfully, here
in Maryland, to make our State a proper rallying ground for
the Great Whig Council. We have shown to our country-
men a Whig victory, thorough and glorious, as the best
0-d.a, ..- .-, d.., to the common cause. We present
ihm a r-a.- C.rrid f-ommonwealth, as our worthiest and
most acceptable offering. It is to the Whig city of Balti-
more-Whig, at last, from centre to circumference-that we
bid them make their pilgrimage of duty. Our banner is but
waiting to be unfurled by their hands. Our homes are as
open to receive them as our hearts will be to give them wel-
Come, then, fellow-citizens, from far and near. Let the
East and the West assemble in fellowship! Let the olden
brotherhood of the North and the South be once more ce-
mented by a common devotion to a righteous cause. That
cause and its success demand your presence. We shall be
prepared to greet you.

AFFAIRS IN FLORIDA.
The Floridian," published at Tallahassee, ad-
verting to Mr. LEvy's Letter of the 12th ultimo to
the Editors of this paper, says :
"sIt may be unnecessary to repeat that we have seen letters
from Mr. Nunes ourself, and know him personally, and have
every confidence in his statements. The "News" has been
misinformed as to the reports. It may possibly be true, as
believed by many, that there is no danger to be apprehended
from the Indians yet remaining within the Territory. We
are not of that opinion ; we never have been, and we think
it the duty of the Government to pursue every measure cal-
culated to effect their speedy removal; and at the same time
to keep a force sufficient in the Territory, particularly on the
peninsula, to give protection to the citizens. From the best
accounts we have been able to obtain, there are a much larger
number of warriors in the country than has been generally
reported to Government. When met by the citizens, or sehen
they come in at the different settlements, their shyness and
insolence give very little evidence of a long-continued friendly
disposition. At all events, it becomes all our citizens exposed
to keep a good watch upon their movements."

HERn DntsBsAciH.-This gentleman, who is well known
here and elsewhere for his wonderful success in taming fero-
cious wild beasts, has fallen into trouble by an untoward ac-
cident. On Friday afternoon (his benefit at the circus being
fixed for that night) he passed through the streets in a ba-
rouche and six, having one of his leopards on his lap. The
circus party, including Driesbach arid his leopard, alighted at
the Fountain Inn, Light street, and, as they came out, Mr.
D. having the leopard in his arms, a small boy was forced by
the crowd against him. The leopard instantly seized the boy
Sby the cheek with one of his claws, and in a twinkling had
the boy's head in his mouth. With great presence of mind,
Driesbach forced his hand and arm into the animal's throat,
and finally, although with great difficulty, and after being
badly bitten, effected the boy's rescue from his fearful and
perilous position. On the same evening the father of the boy
caused Driesbach to be arrested, and on Saturday the case
was heard before one of the city magistrates, who decided
that bail should not be taken until the character of the wound
received by the boy could be more clearly ascertained. We
learn that Driesbach was admitted to bail on Saturday even-
ing, it appearing that his wounds were of a more serious
character than those received by the boy.-American.

GENTLEXMEN : In my card of the 8th instant I omitted the
letters to which I referred because I did not wish to extend
the length of my communication. I will now publish them,

SIR: I am this day duly in receipt of yours of the 19th inst.
In reply I have to state im1i J.rie ih,.- sessionn of the Court Mar-
tial, held on board the Ui,,ii..t -t .,- i h.i. North Carolina in 1842,
you had a running account with this office, and fioun time to time,
in your capacity as Judge Advocate, you gave drafts upon it for
funds required in the prosecution of your public duty. Those
drafts were invariably paid en presentation, aumounting to $1,500
and upwards. Upon inquiry of one of my clerks I learn that at
or about the close of your stay, possibly after your return to
Washington, a person by the name of Jones presented a draft of
yours, drawn payable when your accounts wele settled," for
one hundred dollars. As your accounts were not finally settled
until after your return to Washington the draft was not paid by
me. In reply to your query, whether when Jones presented the
draft I said to him "I had no money of Winder's iu my keeping,
that I never held any of his funds, and that I knew nothing about
him," I have to state in reply that I certainly never made any
such statement to any demand presented in your name by any
person whatever. The whole statement is false.
I am, respectfully, your obedient servant,
R. C. WETMORE, Navy Agent.
The draft referred to in the above letter was after my re-
turn to Washtngton presented to me by Mr. Charles De
Selding, and was promptly paid.
The following is a letter from the office of the Georgetown
Advocate, refuting a charge made by Lieut. McLaughlin that
I had caused to be published in that paper a report that he
was to be tried by a court martial for an alleged balance due
by him on his Florida accounts -

never furnished us with any information respecting Lieutenant
M&Laughlin or his affairs, or any other subject whatever. We
would farther state that yours of 19th instant is the first coomiu-
niostion of any sort, direct or indirect, that we ever had the ho-

Suddenly, at Brown's Hotel, on Friday, the 8th instant,
Mr. LAWSON J. NOELL, formerly of Virginia, but for
the last eight years a resident of Montgomery, Alabama.
The deceased has been in a low state of health some time.
By the advice of friends in Alabama he was prevailed upon
to return to his friends in Virginia, but he altered his mind
after leaving, and came to this city, where he has an only
brother living. The deceased was beloved and respected by
all who knew him.
At his residence, St. Inigoes, in St. Mary's county, Md.
on Friday, 2d February, 1844, PETER GOUGH, Esq. in
the 70th year of his age. He was a man of high moral
character, and was possessed of a sound discriminating judg-
ment. He had few superiors in the circle in which he moved.
His business habits were untiring, and he was always found
a useful neighbor in this particular. Probity, honesty, and
industry marked his character. He was ever ready to assist
the widow and the orphan, and his loss will be deeply felt by
the community in which he lived. He has left an interesting
family and a large circle of friends to deplore his loss.
Departed this life on Sunday, the 3d instant, at his resi-
dence near Port Tobacco, Charles county, Maryland, HEN-
RY A. NEALE, Sen., in the 68th year of his age. Long
of an enfeebled and impaired constitution, the deceased had
ever sought a refuge beyond this vale of tears," and, by
his manly virtues and strict attendance to the duties of his
church, gained that "blessed peace" which marked his last
end. During his illness, which was short but painful, his
comportment was characterized by an unrelenting patience
in his sufferings, a perfect resignation to the will of Divine
Providence, a christian fortitude, and an unshaken confidence
ia the ooduess and mercy of Almighty God.

ASHINTON, FEBa uiA y15, 1843.
Dr. J. Smith Dodge, upon his arrival in Washington to open
an office as a Surgeon Dentist, presented to me letters from seve-
ral friends in New York of the highest respectability and stand-
ing, containing the strongest and most favorable testimonials,
both as to the excellence of his private character and his supe-
rior professional qualifications. These satisfactory evidences of
the man and the Dentist induced me at once to engage the profes-
sional services of Dr. Dodge for my own family; and my wife
and myself are now able, from personal experience, to add our
own equally favorable testimony in his favor as a gentleman and
a skilful Dentist. This testimony is thus given by me, as well in
obedience to the earnest solicitations of respectable and worthy
friends in New York, who have for many years experienced the
skill and fidelity of the Doctor in his profession, as to my own
convictions of his personal and professional merit.

INDESTRUCTIBLE GOtLD *ENS.-W. FISCGHER
has just received a few of Brown's Ever-pointed Premiutn
Gold Pens. The combined qualities of incorrosibility and dura
ability possessed by this new and beautiful article may justly claim
for it the title of Ever-pointed." The body of thie pen is of
gold, an incorrosible metal, highly polished, and will always re-
gain its elasticity and beauty ; and the points are formed of a
metal second in hardness to no substance heretofore discovered
having the indissolubility of diamond and wholly insensible to
corrosion. In addition to these enduring properties, it has the
softness and smoothness of the quill pen, and its irin-rr-.irti6,
allows a free and pleasant flow of ink. The nicest eorktrs.-l
and long application have been necessary to perfect it, and it is
now offered as the "Ne Plus Ultra of pens, having the beauties
of the quill and metallic pen combined, with its own peculiar ex
cellence of always retaining the same elasticity, the same easy
flow, and the same beautiful stroke, unchangeable by time and
use. These pens have been in use five years without the least
perceptible wear. mar 5-2aw3w

The President and Directors of the Bank of Metropolis,
John A. Brackenridge, executor of John Brackenridge, deceas-
ed, and Robert E. Kerr, administrator of Alexander Kerr,
HE bill ii this cause in substance states that the deceased,
John Brackenridge, was in his lifetime, and at the time
of his death, indebted to the complainants upon his certain pro-
missory note, dated September 11, 1840, for $990, payable in
sixty days after date, which was discounted by the complainants.
That, for the purpose of securing the payment of any and every
note which he then had or might thereafter have discounted at
the said Banik, he did, in his lifetime, execute a certain sealed
instrument, which is exhibited with the bill, whereby he auto.
rized Alexander Kerr, since deceased, and whose administrator
is the said Robert E. Kerr, his successor in office, to transfer tIme
said stock to such person and in such manner as the complain-
ants might require.
That the said note is due and unpaid, except so far as credits
have been given thereon for dividends from time to time declared
on said stock, amounting in all to $259 52. The bill prays that
the said John A. Brackenridge, the sole acting executor of the
said John, deceased, may be decreed to pay the said debt by a
short day, and that for default of such payment the said stock
may be sold: and for general relief, &G.
And forasmuch as the said John A. Brackenridge does not re-
side within the District of Column ia, but it parts beyond the juris-
diction of this Court, as appears by the bill, it is, therefore, on
this 19th day of December, 1843, by the Court ordered, that the
complainants make publication of the substance of this bill in the
National Intelligencer, at the city of Washington, once a week
for Lur months, prior to the second Monday in May next, notify-
ing the said defendant, John A. Brackenridge, to be and appear
here before the Court in propria persona, or by solicitor, on or
before the said last mentioned day, to answer the said bill: other-
wise such publication being duly made, that the said bill and the"
several matters and allegations thereof be taken pro confeseo
againsthe said defendant. By order oh the Court. Test:

SPRINCETON BOARDING-SCHOOL FOR
BOYS.-BY E. C. WINES.
THE subscriber, as is known to many, several years ago
succeeded the late Prof. PATTroN as Proprietor and Prin-
cipal of the Edgehill Seminary, an institution founded at Prince-
ton, New Jersey, by that eminent scholar, on a plan analon Oue to
that of the German Gymnasia. He left the institution, after hav-
ing continued five years at its head, for the purpose of visiting
Europe, and studying its institutions.
He now proposes to re-establish himself at the same place, and
toconmminence a new institution, to be called the Princeton Board-
ing School for Boys." The school will be open for the reception
of pupils on the 1st day of May, 1844. It will be conducted on
the same principles which were found to be so efficient, and which
gave such general satisfaction, in his former establishment.
Able assistants will be provided, who will all reside in the family
of the Principal.
The number of pupils will be limited at fifty, and they will ALL
be under the care and control of the principal and his assistants
at all hours-eating with them at the same table, and sleeping
under the same roof, and constituting in fact ONE family. The
plan of the school requires that the pupil. be entirely secluded
from other boys. No day scholars, therefore, will be received ;
and no pupil will be permitted to leave the premises unless ac-
companied by one of the teachers. The discipline will be mild
and affectionate-entirely of the parental kind.
Education, to be rational and effective, must have respect to the
whole man, and must he adapted both to the properties ofthe sub-
ject and his destination in life. It should seek to produce a per-
fect body,a perfect mind, and a perfect heart. In conformity with
these p inciples, sound physical, moral, and intellectual develop.
ment an i culture will be the great objects aimed at. All our fa-
culties acquire their proper maturity and strength in the same
way-by a well directed activity. Hence the plan will be, not so
much to crowd the memory with words, or even to impart frag-
ments of useful knowledge, as to draw forth and train to system-
atic and vigorous action, the observing, reflecting, and active
powers of the learner. The reason and the eonsciene will be
constantly appealed to, and the pupil taught to think and judge for
The institution will prepare youths for college, and also for the
pursuits of commerce, agriculture, manufactures, &c. The in-
struments of this preparation-in other words, the studies em-
braced in the plan of the school-will be, the Greek, Latin,
French, and Spanish languages and literature, the Mathematics
and Exact Sciences, Natural History, Geography, and History,
the English 1-tia, 'a.e and literature, Elocution, Composition, &c.
The school will te provided with an ample and well-selected
miscellaneous library, which will be open to the use of the pu-
pils, who will be guided in their general reading as well as in
The bodily exercise will ble of such a character as to promote
the health, cheerfulness, contentment, and manly deportment of
the pupils. Every unnecessary exposure to present injury or fu-
ture disease will be carefully avoided.
Particular attention will be paid to the manners and personal
neatness of the puoils. Moral and religious instruction will be
sedulously imparted, but sectarian peculiarities will be kept en-
tirely out of view. The pupils will attend such churches on the
Sabbath as their parents may select, under the care of a teacher,
There will be two sessions in each year, commencing on the
first days of May and November, and ending on the first days of
March and September, respectively.
A monthly report of the standing of each pupil will be sent to
the parent or guardian.
All letters of business or inquiry, relating to the school, must
be addressed (post paid) to the subscriber, at Washington, D. C.
till the first of Apri', and after that date at Princeton, New Jersey.
Circulars containing terms and other particulars will be prompt-
ly sent on application as above.
E. C. WINES, Principal.
Princeton, (N. J.) January 1st, 1844.
For the satisfaction of those persons whIo may have noknow-
ledge of him as a teacher, the Principal subjoins the following
letters, which will sufficiently explain themselves :
From the Hon. Henry Clay, of Kentucky.
ASHLAND, NOVEMaia 27, 1843.
DEAR SIR: Although the pressure of my correspondence is
very great, I cannot decline complying with your request for my
testimony respecting your Boarding School, formerly kept in
Princeton. One of my sons and two of my grandsons were un-
der your care, and I visited the establishment whilst they were
there. All the departments of your school, as well those re-
lating to the instruction as those respecting the person .1 comfort
of your pupils, appeared to me to be admirably conducted. And
my son John thinks that he derived more benefit under your aus
pieces than he ever obtained from all the other schools which he
ever attended. Ina your enterprise you have my cordial wishes
for your success. I am, respectfully, your friend and obedient
servant, H. CLAY.
E. C. WINEs, Esq.
From A. D. Bache, !LL.D., of Philadelp,;a. far,,.:,. Pre-
sident of Girard College and now at u.'n ... '._ Uni-
ted States Coast Survey.
DEAR SIR : The just and widely spread reputation which you
have acquired in the education of youth and in unfolding, as an
author, the principles of your science, appears to me to render
any opinion of mine in regard to your capabilities entirely value-
Sless, and 1 believe that in the estimate which you set upon it you
are influenced by feelings of friendship towards me. It gives me
great pleasure to say, however, that in regard to both the princi-
pies of education and the practice of instruction, as far as I have
had an opportunity of observing your methods in the Philadelphia
High School, I consider you as aiong the first of those devoted
to the honorable but arduous profession of a teacher.
Very truly and respectfully yours,
E. C. WINxs, Esq. A. D. BACHE.
From the Hon. J. J. Milligan, of Delaware. -
DEAR SIR : It gives me great pleafumre to bear my testimony to
your entire fitness for the undertaking you are about to com-
mence. Mv viinion is derived i'r n li,. f i[ .af iaiiug had a saon
driver your charge ot a gTesit-ti r t'rce years.
During that period I had every season to be satisfied both with his
intellectual and moral improvement.
In the course of the several visits which I made to your school
I was very much struck, not merely with your admirable mode
of imparting instruction, but also with the system of discipline
employed for the government of your pupils. It was altogether
social-addrassed to their hearts and understandings-treating
them as reasonable creatures, and calculated to win their confi-
dence while it excited their respect. it is the only system that
harmonizes with our free political institutions or can ever succeed
in this country. Very sincerely and truly yours, &c.
E. C. WINEs, Esq. J. J. MILLIGAN.
From the Hon. Samuel L. Southard, of New Jersey.
WASHINGTON, JUNz 17, 1840.
DEAR SIR n: I was well acquainted with your school at Edge-
hill, and very sincerely approved it. My two sons were there
under your care, and I was often at the school. I am, respect-
fully, &c. SAMUEL L. SOUTHARD.
Mr. E. C. WINEs.
From Dr. Dick, of Scotland, a writer well known in this
country by many popular works.
I have read both your volumes,* froun beginning to end, with
a great degree of interest and with a critical eye. 1 do not re-
collect a single sentiment or proposition in which I do not most
cordially acquiesce. Tmhe style in which they are written is both
perspicuous and nervous, and the arguments and reasoning can-
not but commend themselves to the conviction of every unpreju-
diced and enlightened mind. I consider your volumes as con-
taining a mass of valuable instruction and illustrations, which,
were they attended to by all the instructors of youth, the best in-
terests of the rising generation would be greatly promoted. In
truth, on the speedy establishment in every land of such a sys-
tem of education as you recommend, will in a great measure de-
pend our hopes of the near approach of the millennial era."

PtILADoLPHtA, JANUARY 13, 1844.
MY DEAR FRIEND : From ann intnmato acquaintance with you,
and your viows of education, I know no person to whom I would
entrust the instruction of a youth so soon as to yourself, wirether
Iregarded his intellectual or moral advantages, or both. I am
ready to meet with unqualified recommendation any reference
you may make to, dear sir, your very sincere friend,

already sold for taxes. When the sum to be paid is under $21),
ten per cent., will be charged; when over $20, five per cent. To
prevent sales by tax collectors, and the expense and trouble of re-
demption, funds should be in hand by the 1slt of January in each
year. The township, range, and section of each tract of land
must be accurately given. Land sold last year must be redeemed
within two years from the date of sale, otherwise the title will ab-
solutely vest in the State. They ean now be redeemed by the

tending sale. G. R. FALL,

THE LAW LIBRARY.
HE number of this periodical for January, 1844, will con-
tain the commencement of the following very valuable
work, which will be printed in several successive numbers, until
A Selection of Leading Cases on various branches of the Law,
with Notes, 2 vols., by John William Smith, Esq. Second
American from the last London edition, with Notes and Refer-
ences to American Decisions, by H. Binney-Wallace and J. I.
Clark Hare, of the Philadelphia Bar.
[" This work, with so unpretending a title, is an important ad-
dition to legal literature. The idea is excellent: it is to select
some of those leading cases' which involve, and are usually
cited to establish, some point or principle of real practical import-
ance, and append to them notes, in which are collected subse-
quent decisions bearing on the points reported in the text, and in
which doctrines, having some obvious connexion with them, are
occasionally discussed. We cordially recommend this book to
the profession. It is not one of those hasty and crude compila-
tions put forth with such fatal facility and frequency by many of
his competitors at the bar. It affords evident marks of long and
patient thought, and industrious research."-Lonidon Legal
The above work, being part of the Law Library, will be sent
by mail to any part of the United States.
It will form only a part of the year 1844. Subscriptions, there-
fore, commencing with January will secure not only Smith's
Leading Cases entire, but other publications also. The follow-

CE I ICE I-The subscriber having succeeded in filling lis
large house with Potomac Ice, of a very superior quality,is
now prepared to receive orders for the coming season. He wodd
advise all private families, keepers of hotels, boarding houses,
confectionaries, &e., who wish a supply through the entire sea-
son, to make early application, and they will not be disappointed,
as many were last summer by one or two small dealers in the >r-
tidle, who attempted to furnish and failed in the hottest weather
when it was most needed. He has the largest house in the De-
trict, and will feel bound to furnish those who commence with
him until next December if they require it.
Persons wishing ice before the season for delivering from thea
wagons can get it by sending to the store, where it is kept con-
stantly on hand. Z. D. GILMAN,
