IAIR TONIC.-For producing a fine growth
of Hair, many testimonials accompany each
bottle. The following is from a disinterested
source, is worthy of attention.
JAYN'S HAiaR ToNic.-We have, heretofore
numbered ourselves among those who believed that
"Alibert's Hair Tonic," sold by Dr. Jayne, was
one of the many quack npstrums whose virtues
are never seen beyond the fulsome puffs of their
authors. We are willing, at length, to make pub-
lic acknowledgment of the error of our belief. An
intimate friend, some two or three months since,
all the top of whose cranium was as bald as a
piece of polished marble, maugre all our jsting
and ridicule of the idea of attempting to cultivate
so barren a spot, purchased a bottle or two of the
Hair Tonic from Dr. Jayne, and according to his
directions applied it. During the present week
the same friend ushered himself into our presence,
and uncovering his hitherto naked head, astonished
us with a thin, though luxuriant growth of hair,
from one to two inches in length-upon the very
premises we had believed as unyielding to cultiva-
tion as the trackless sand that skirts the Atlantic.
This is no puff, but is religiously true, and, to those
who doubt, the gentleman can be pointed out. What
is more in favor of this "Tonic," the case here
e'ite.t was not one of temporary baldness-no sud-
den loss of the hair-but was one of years' stand-
ing, though the gentleman is but years of
age.-Philadelphia Spirit ofthe Timtes of Oc. 21,1839.

Falie and calumnious statements against th's
lottery, calculated to create a want of confidence
witti persons residing at a distance from this city,
baring been published in one or two newspapers
in the United States, and from them copied into
others, andt which ri her originated from ignorance
or malice, the subscriber, in order to satisfy the
most sceptical as to the good faith with which ih s
undertaking is conducted, has entered into the fol-
lowing arrangement with three of the first banking
institutions in this city, namely: the Union Bank
of Louisiana, the Citizens Bank of Louiiana, and
the New Orlean.: Canal and Banking Compan,.
These banks will receive special deposits for avvy

ITTAl "I? A -i

TtuamuAy, February 6,1840.
The SPEAKER begged leave to make # short
explanation this morning, in relation to the subject
wh'ch was under discussion yesterday evening. It
had been suggested yesterday by several gentle-
men, that it was probably due to himself, and to
the relations he bore to the Hou-e, that he should
explain the reasons which induced him to decline
presenting the communication he received from the
Governor and Council of New Jersey. If it should
be the pleasure, therefore, of the House, he would
desire to lay the correspondence referred to before
it. This course would, perhaps, tend to put an end
to unnecessary debate, and do away with the ne-
cessity of suspending the rules, as moved by the
gentleman from Virginia, [Mr. Wisa]
The 'correspondence was then read, as follows:
Trenton, Jai 24, 1840.
SIR: I herewith transmit a copy of a preamble
and resolutions passed by the Legislature of the
State of New Jersey at their present session, and
request that you will lay the same before the Re-
presentatives of the Twenty-sixth Congress from
the several States, now assembled at Washington.
I have the honor to be, with great rejpeci, your
obedient servant,
Governor of New Jersey.

Washington, January 30, 1840.
To his Excellency Gov. PENNINGTON:
Sia: I have received, through you, the resolutions
of the Council and General Assembly of New
Jersey, a copy of which was ordered to be trans-
nine-i to "the Hon. R. M. T. HUNTER, a Repre-
sentative from the State of Virgin'a, with the re-
quest that he w.ll lay the same before the other
RepreeniahiVes from the several States now as-
sembled at Washington." As an individual, or
as a member from the State of Virginia, I should
always esteem it a distinguished h'nr to be
selected as the organ through whom the sove-
reign State of New Jersey might be pleased
to express its wishes and opinions. But, as
I have no right to suppose that the Coun-
cil and General Assembly of New Jersey have de-
signed thus to distinguish me individually, and to
the exclusion of the honorable member from that
State, who, with others, constitute the present
House of Representatives, I feel bound to con-
clude, upon this consideration and from the general
tenor of the resolutions themselves, that they were
sent to me on account of the station which I at
present occupy. Under these circumstances, I beg
leave most respectfully to decline to lay these reso-
lutions before the House over which I have the
honor to preside, as, virtually, they seem to deny
my title to the office of Speaker, and the right of
those who have invested me with that trust.
The House of Representatives of the United
States of America having elected a Speaker, has a
right to expect that all communications made to it
through its organ, should be addressed to him in
his official capacity. Under this view of the case,
it would seem that I cannot comply with the re-
quest of the Council and General Assembly of New
Jersey, wilh a due regard to the dignity of the
House, or without admitting by reference that it
had conferred upon me authority which it had no
right to give, and that I myself am discharging the
functions of an office to which I have no title.
These are admissions which I am not prepared to
In thus statne my views in reference to the re-
quest made of me, I raise no question as to the
propriety of the resolutions themselves, or as to the
right of the Council and General Ass-mbly of New
Jersey to adopt them. I only refer to them as
they relate to my official station, to show that I am
influenced by no want of respect for the constitu-
ted authorities of the State of New Jersey, but
governed entirely by a sense of duty to the House
of which I am the organ, and which may expect
that I shall not lay before them communications
which refuse to accredit me as such. I am not
disposed to cavil about mere matters of form, nor
do I imagine that a personal disrespect was intended
to be offered to me by those, whose station and dig-
nity alike forbid such a supposition. But when an
omission of form seems designed as a mode of de-
Dying the r ghts and privileges of .the House of
Representatives, of which I am the organ, it be.
comes my duty to do nothing which may recog-
nise the propriety of such an omission.
I have retained the copy of the resolutions trans-
mitted to me, until I shall be further advised by
your Excellency of any other disposition which it
may be proposed to make of them.
In conclu-ion, I beg leave to express my request
that I should be unable to comply with any regret
made of me by the Council and General Assembly
of New Jersey.
I have the honor to be, with great respect, your
obedient servant, R. M. T. HUNTER.
Mr. RANDOLPH observed that he did not hear
the objections made yesterday by the gentleman
from Pennsylvania. If he had heard the gentle-
man, he would have replied to them. The fifty-
fourth rule, Mr. R. said, was applicable to petitions
and memorials only, and not to resolutions coming
from a sovereign State. He did not think, there-
fore, that they should be laid over, by the opera-
tions of this ru'e.
The SPEAKER suggested to the gentleman
from Virginia, [Mr. WrsE,] that he had better
withdraw his motion to suspend the rules, the ob.
ject having been accomplished by laying the cor-
respondence before the House.
Mr. WISE said his only object, on yesterday, in
pressing the motion that the SPEAKER be permitted
to give his reasons, was to enable that gentleman
to place hinsetf right before the country. His ob-
ject was attained by the reading of the correspon-
dence, which would be placed on the journal.
That correspondence gave satisfactory reasons for
the course the SPEAKER had pursued; and he
deemed his motion now unnecessary, and with-
drew it.
The SPEAKER then informed the gentleman
from New Jersey, that the resolutions were before
the House on the motion to print them.
Mr. LEADBETTER rose to a question affect-
ing the journal, and stated that, after what had
transpired on yesterday it relation to the presenta-
tion of the joint resolutions of the Legislature of
the State of New Jersey, he should move to strike
out the entry made in that case, and to insert the
following as an amendment:
"Mr. RANDOLPH inquired of the SPEAKER if he hal received
certain joint resolutions from the Governor and Council of the
State of New Jersey; and if so, did the SPBAKER intend to pre.
sent them And if the SPEAKER did not intend to present them,
did the CHAIR wish to state his reasons for refusing to present
"TheSjEAKXE replied that he had received certain resolu-
tions from the Governor and Council, addressed to him as a
member of the House, and not as SPiA'KR; that he should not
present them, and had so informed the Governor and Council.
"Mr. RANDOLPH. Then I will present them, and move to
have them spread upon the journal.
"Mr. LEADnsTTER objected, as being out of order.
"The CHAIR stated, that by the practice of the Hoase, the're-
solutions were in order.
"Mr. HAND rose to the same question of order; and, during a
desultory debate, when Mr. RANDOLPH was called upon to
either state the contents of the resolution, or to have them read.
"Mr. RANDOLPH replied, let them be read.
"Mr. DROMuOOor rose, and objected to the reception, and
should continue to do so, until the SPUAKBR should state his
reasons for not presenting those resolutions."
Mr. L. stated that this amendment had been
hastily drawn up, and would of course be subject
to corrections wherein it might differ from the facts.
But, said Mr. L. permit me here to state, that if
those resolutions had found their way upon the
journals of this House, in accordance with its

rules, an amendment of the journal would not
have been called for by me; but justice to myself,
to the House, and to the country, seem to requireU
that the journal should be its own expositor of the
way and manner in which those resolutions found
their way upon them. Let those resolutions be
couched in language ever so respectful-let them
have emanated from a sovereign State or elsewhere,
I insist that, inasmuch as they came not in under
the prescribed rules of the House, "but climbed
up some other way," it is but just, right, and pro-
per, that the journals should present the facts of the
case. I will here inquire how thoue resolutions
came there, and if I am wrong, I hope that some
gentleman will correct me.
After the honorable member from'New Jersey,
[Mr. RANDOLPH,] had imparted with the SPEAKER,
he presented the joint resolutions of the Legisla- I
ture of his State, and moved that they be spread
upon the journal; to which I objected, being in-
formed by the SPEAKER that resolutions and memo-
rials from the Legislatures of the States had, by R
the former practice of the House, been always con- I
sidered as in order upon petition days. The hono- P
rable member from New Jersey was then called
upon, either to state the contents of the resolutions,
or to have them read; to which he replied, "Let
them be read.", During this call, an honorable
member from New York, [Mr. HAN*S,] rose to the
same point of order, and received the mame infor-

This motion to reject was not withdrawn; yet
I understand that the CHAIR decided that the reso
lutions were received, in which, with all due re-
spect for the CHAIR, I then thought, and still think,
that the CHAIR erred; but this decision beina made,
I felt myself constrained to put myself and the
matter right before the country; and before a peti-
tion, memorial, or resolution, can be received by
this House, it must either be read for the informa-
tion of the House, or its contents briefly stated.
Now, sir, I ask was this done? Who heard them
either read or their contents stated? Who among
us even now knows what those resolutions
contained? How do we know but what they are
in direct violation of the ru'e adopted by this
House, a few days ago, in relation to the subject
of Abolition? How do we know, sir, but they
contain direct propositions for the immediate abo-
lishment of slavery in the District of Columbia?
Did you hear them read? Did you hear a brief
statement of their contents? No, sir. No. Then, sir,
before the power of the ru'e requiring that they
should be either read, or a statement of their con-
tents briefly made, had exhausted itself, the
objection to the reception was made by the
gentleman from Virginia, and not withdrawn.
Then, sir, how stand the facts of the case? Sim-
ply thus: that we have spread upon our journals
preambles, resolutions, &c. &c. of which we know
nothing, except from dame rumor, and that at a
time when the House were resting, insecurely, un-
der the apprehension that the quesiton of reception
was still before us.
Although these resolutions are upon the journal,
(the reading of that part of which is dispensed
with,) yet, sir, suppose that it shall appear hereaf-
ter that those resolutions are intended as a direct
insult to this body, and we shall be compelled to
hear the record of our own disgrace heralded forth
to the world, how much more does the justice and
propriety of this amendment to the journal present
itself to our cnsideraiicn? Nor this alone-let the
same journal, which bears the record of our dis-
grace, also transmit to posterity the way and man-
ner in which this disgrace came upon the record.
Mr. REED hoped that part of the gentleman's
motion would not be adopted. The gentleman
was for putting on the journal a desultory debate,
verifying the old adage, that there might be "too
much of a good thing." This reminded him of an
anecdote he had heard relating to a circumstance
that took place in the old Plymouth colony. A
man there was punished by whipping for some
trifling crime; and, when putting on his jacket to
go away, was told by the judge to come back and
pay a shilling for recording. The culprit an-
swered, that he did not care whether they recorded
it or not. Mr. R. concluded by moving to lay the
motion of Mr. LEADBETTER on the table.
Mr. JONES of New York demanded the yeas
and nays.
Mr. TILLINGHAST inquired of the CHAIR
whether it had not been the invariable practice, in
making up the journal, to insert thereon the joint
resolutions passed by S'ate Legislatures.
The SPEAKER said the journal, as it now
stood, was in the usual form.
Mr. BEATTY inquired if it had been usual to
insert on the journal resolutions of the Slates
couched in improper language, and denying the
organization of the House. Mr. B. denied that
such was the practice, and was proceeding to de-
bate that point, but was called to order by
The SPEAKER, who said the motion to lay on
the table was not debatable.
Mr. BEATTY. I am sorry, that the gag had
been applied in this case. He wished it could be
The yeas and nays were then ordered on the
motion to lay on the table; and were-yeas 87,
nays 86.
So it was laid on the table.
The question then recurring on the motion to
Mr. STEENROD demanded the yeas and nays,
which were ordered, and were-yeas 94, nays 92
Petitions and memorials were then further pre-
By Mr. RANDOLPH, of New Jersey.
The SPEAKER presented the report of the
minority of the Joint Committee of the Legislature
of New Jersey, approving of the course of the
House of Representatives in excluding from seaLts
the spurious members returned from that State.
Mr. RANDOLPH moved that it be laid on the
table and be printed.
Mr. BEATY called for the reading of the report;
which was proceeded in'for a short time, when
Mr. DANA moved that the reading be dis-
pensed with.
Mr. BEATTY persisted in having it read. It
was a courtesydue to the House that, after the ma-
jority 'report had been read, the minority also
should be read.
Mr. DAVIES of Pennsylvania objected to the
reading; when
Mr. BEATTY demanded the yeas and nays on
the motion to suspend the reading, but subse-
quently withdrew it.
The question was then taken on the motion to
suspend, and decided in the affirmative, without a
Mr. CRARY said the CHAIR had decided that
it had been usual to place on the journal resolu-
tions of State Legislatures, but he believed that
rule had been departed from in some instances;
therefore, for fear that the resolutions might or
might not be placed there, he moved to amend the
motion to lay on the table, and print, by add-
ing, and that the same be spread on the journal.
Mr. R. GARLAND inquired if it was in order
to amend a motion to lay on the table.
Mr.PETRIKIN inquired of the CHAIR wheiher,if
the yeas and nays be ordered on the motion to lay
on the table and print, the resolutions would not
be also inserted on the journal.
The SPEAKER. According to the usual prac-
tice. they would.
Mr. CRARY withdrew his motion to amend, as
the object he had in view to get it spread on the
journal could be accomplished in another way.
Mr.TURNEY then demanded the yeas and nays,
which were ordered, and were-yeas 155, nays 1.
So the motion to print and lie on the table pre-
Petitions and memorials were then presented by
and COOPER, of Pennsylvania, and also by the
SPEAKER, from citizens of that State.

The resolution submitted some days since by
Mr. PRESTON, in relation to the Cumberland road,
was taken up, and after a long debate, in which it
was supported by Messrs. PRESTON, WEB-
STER, SMITH of Indiana, and MERRICK, and
opposed by Messrs. BENTON, ALLEN, TAP-
PAN, KING, HUBBARD, and CLAY of Alaba-
ma, and after being modified, on the question of
its adoption, the vote was-ayes 4, noes 39.
So it was not adopted.
The Senate then adjourned until Monday next.

FIDAtv, J'nuary 7, 1840.
Mr. J. W. JONES, chairman of the Commit!ee
of Ways and Means, asked that the House would
resolv. itself Committee of the Whole to consider
the bill making appropriations for Revolutionary
and other pensioners. The pensions are payable
1alf-yearly, on 4th of March and September, and
unless the House would take some immediate ac-
tion on this bill, it would be impossible for the Se-
cretary of the Treasury to place the funds in the
hands of disbursing agents at the various sections
of the country where payment is mad- to the pen-
sioners. The House would see the troubles and
difficulties in which these old pensioners would be
placed if the necessary funds were not in the hands
of the agents to pay them, after they had made long
journeys, wi1h the expectation of receiving payment
at the time specified by law. He hoped there
would be no objection.
Mr. PICKENS suggested to the chairman of
the Committee of Ways and Means the propriety
of receiving reports till the hour of one o'clock;
Sand, at that time, go into Icommittee on this bill.
SThere were very many important reports to be
made from committees, which he hoped would be
Mr. EVANS objected to any departure from
the rules. Such departures, experience taught
him, had always embarrassed rather than facili-
tated the business of the House. He would, for
That reason vote against all motions to suspend the
rules. He hoped they would be adhered to, and
that the States would be called for petitions.
Mr. PICKENS said petitions had been called
from the Stales for two days past; and if they go
on to receive them again to-day, he feared discus-
sion might arise which would prevent the commit-
tees from having any opportunity to make re-
ports. He hoped the House would agree tore-
ceive reports; and that the chairman off the Com-
mittee of Ways and Means would yield to this
suggestion, to go into committee at 1 o'clock.
Mr. JONES said the bill required the speedy ac-
tion of the House; but he was willing t9 yield to
the suggestion of the gentleman from South Caro-
lina, [Mr. PICKE S.] Mr. J. was proceeding in his
remarks, when
Mr. R. GARLAND called him to order.
Mr. JONES modified his motion, so that the
Houze at 1 o'clock proceed to the consideration of
the bill in committee.
Mr. DAWSON inquired of the chairman of the
Committee ofWays and Means whether the funds to
meet these pensioners were not appropriated one
year in advance, and whether there was not a suffi-
cient sum of the old appropriations in the hands of
disbursing agents, to meet the payments necessary
to be made in March.
-..-&lr. PETIlKIN object to hi, anw'," ing the
question, or any debate, as it was entirely out of
Mr. JONES said he would answer the gentle-
nart's question; when he was again called to order.
He then moved a suspension of the rules, and de-
manded the yeas and nays on that motion.
Mr. BELL hoped the gentleman from Virginia
[Mr. JoNrs] would be permitted to answer the in-
terrogatory put to him by the r-ral-m.n from
Georgia [Mr. DAWSON.] It had .iin I,.- invaria-
ble practice of the House for such questions to be
put and answered; and in fact the public business
could not be transacted without it.
The SPEAKER said such had been the usual
practice of the House, and was no doubt a conve-
nient one; strictly speaking, however, debate was
not in order.
Mr. PETRIKIN said his only objection arose
from the fact of debates being permitted in one
case, and not in another. If one gentleman was
permitted to speak out of order, the same liberty
might be claimed by all,:and thus entirely obstruct
the regular business of the House.
Mr. JONES, in answer to the question of the
gentleman from Georgia, said he believed that it
was the usual practice of the Department to for-
ward these funds in advance, but how far, as to
time, he was not advised. From looking, how-
ever, at the amount of unexpended balances, as
shown by the report of the Secretary of the Trea-
tury, he inferred that it was not possible that funds
to provide for all the accruing pensions could be at
the points where they are to be paid; for, if every
dollar of these unexpended balances were there,
there would still not be more than half what was
necessary. There were unexpended balances at
some of the points, but to meet the payments at all
of them in time, it was necessary that this appro-
priation should be speedily passed.
The yeas and nays having been ordered on the
question of suspension, were-yeas 119, nays 40.
Mr. JONES then moved that the House go into
the Committee of the Whole at one o'clock, for
the purpose of taking up the bill making ap.tro-
priations for the payment of the Revolutioinry
and ether pensioners of the United S'ates.
Mr. GARLAND of Louisiana called for the
reading of the statement made by the Commissioner
of Pensiens,in order tohshow the amount of the un-
expended balances
-Mr. JONES said he stated to the House that
there was a large amount of unexpended balances
under one head of appropriations, but that the
amount would not payr much more than one-half
of the pensions aecrJing.
Mr. GARLAND said, if the gentl man would
look at the documents, he would find that the pen-
sion agents were most generally banking inst ti-
tions and favorites of th- Government; and that
they had in their hands about one mi I'on four
hundred thousand dollars to appty to the payment
of these pensions.
Mr. TURNEY called for uhe previous question,
but the call was not seconded.

Mr. GARLAND of Louisiana then read a report
of the Commissioner of Pensions, and said that from
this report, it appeared that there was now one mil.
lion four hundred thousand dollars in the hands of
S the agents, while one million only was wanted for
each quarter's payment. Now the effort was made
to set aside the regular business of the House, for
the purpose of placing money in the hands of these
agents in advance. It was notorious that these
agents were banks and political favorites who had
the use of the public money for months before it
was wanted.
Mr. JONES of Virginia rose to correct the errors
into which the gentleman fiom Louisiana had fal-
len. The gentleman supposed that these pensions
were payable quarterly, whicn was not the fact.
They were payable half yearly, one payment be-
c.ming due in March, and the other in September.
Further, tlI e amount of one million four hundred
thousand dollars, now in the hands of the pension
agent, wit not enough io pay the pensions becoming
due in March. wie there was the payment
coming due in Selp omhPr, that was necessary now
to be provided for. Mr. J. then went into an esti-
mate of the different heads under which pensions
are to be paid, and the sums that will be required
for them. But thegentleman's principal .tl-j it.r.
was, that this money would go into the hntt- f h.
banks and political favorites of the Government.
This was the first time he had ever heard thai
the banks were the peculiar favorites of this
Government, and an assertion like this, coming from
a entllemnan standing in the political relation the

gentleman from Louisiana did to the AdminiItra-t
tion, was a little extraordinary. He did not know
how the gentleman made out that the individuals
who acted as pension agents were the favorites of
the Administration, but if the gentleman would
look at the list of agencies, he would find that the
banks were a large proportion of them, and there-
fore it was the favorites of the gentleman and hIis
party, and not of the Administration, that derived
any benefits from these agencies.
Mr. SMITH of Maine wished to make one sin-
gle statement in reply to the gentleman from Loui-
siana. The gentleman said that those who disbursed
these pensions were either banks or the especial
favorites of the Administration. Now he begged
leave to inform him that the pension agent in the
State of Maine was a thoroughgoing Hartford Con-
vention Federalist.
Mr. PETRIKIN here called for the previous
question; and the call being seconded by the House,
the main question was put, and carried without a
Mr. PICKENS, from the.Committee en Foreign
Affairs, reported the following resolutions, which
were agreed to:
Resolved, That the President of the United States
be requested, if in his opinion it be not incompati-
ble with the public interests so to do, to communi-
cate to this House any information in his possession
respecting the condition of the citizens of the United
States doing business during the past year in China,
the state of the American trade in that country, and
the interests of the people and commerce of the
United States, as affected by the recent measures of
the Chinese Government for the suppression of the
contraband or forcible introduction of opium into
China. Also, whether the British Government has
given notice to that of the United States of a pur-
pose to blockade the ports of China, or of other
hostile intentions towards that Government, and
any other information possessed by the Executive
in relation to the above matters.
Resolved, That the Secre,arv of the Treasury be
directed to transmit to this House a statement of
the commerce and navigation between the United
State and China, from 1821 to 1839 inclusive,
e(hibLitir.g for each year the amount of specie, the
value and description of manufactured articles, the
value and description of other merchandise, and
the total amount exported; the quantity and value
of teas, the value of silk goods, the value of other
merchandise, and the total amount imported; the
number of ships, the amount of tonnage, and the
Lumber of seamen employed.
On motion of Mr. CURTIS, Senate bill, entitled
"An act to cancel the bond given to secure duties
upon vessels and their cargoes employed in the
whale fisheries, and to make registers lawful papers
for such vessels," was referred to the Committee
on Commerce.
The hour of one o'clock having arrived, the
House then resolved itself into Committee of the
Whole, (Mr. LINCOLN in the chair,) and took up
for consideration the bill making appropriation for
the payment of Revolutionary and other pensions
for the year 1840.
Mr. R. GARLAND then went on to reply to
some remarks made by Mr. SMITH of Maine, in
which that gentleman had contradicted the asser-
tion he made, that the pension sgen's were presi-
dents of banks, or friends and partisans of the pre-
sent Administration. In proof that h's assertions
were correct, he referred to the names of many
agents, among the rest, that of Mr. Van Ness,
president of the Bank of the Melropolis, and of
Dr. Brockenbrough, president:of the Bank of Vir-
ginia, and Philemon Diclkerson, one of the claim-
ants for a seat from the State of New Jersey.
Mr. RANDOLPH said the gentleman from Lou-
isiana was mistaken. The pension aer.t was a
different individual, and not the gentleman claim-
ing a seat from that State.
Mr. GARLAND, after referring to the names of
other agents, inquired of the chairman of the Com-
mittee of Ways and Means whether it was pro-
posed to place the whole amount in the bill into
the hands of the aeenis immediately.
Mr. J. W. JONES said he had supposed that
the explanations he had already made would have
satisfied all gentlemen. He was not very conver-
sant as to the usage of the Department in that re-
spect, nor did he know to what amount the agents
were entitled for disbursing these funds. He had
information to enable him to state positively at
what time this money was transmitted to the
agents; but he presumed when appropriations were
made by Congress, it was sent to them in time to
meet the obligations of the Government
It might be s x months or less. The amount
of balances on hand, according to the gentleman's
au 1li..virE,'. was not sufficient by several hunt
Hired. ilu-an t dollars, even if tIhe appropriations
under the different heads should be aggregated, to
pay the amount becoming due on the 4th of March.
These balances are from appropriations under the
several pension laws, to be specifically applied to
the different classes, and he did not see, by exist-
ing laws, how the appropriations under one head
could be applied to other objects. The estimates
had been furnished and laid before the House,
showing what was necessary to be done to meet
the obligations of the Government. Mr. J. then
went on to examine those estimates, and show that
the balances on hand were net sufficient for that
Mr. BANKS rose 1o trouble ihe committee with
a very few remarks. He understood that when a
bill was referred to the Committee of the Whole
House, the object was to render it open for such
amendments as might be necessary. He did not
suppose, however, that any amendments would be
offered, but that the committee would at once rise,
and report the bill to the House. But before this
was done, he wished to reply to an allusion that
had been made by the gentleman from Louisiana,
[Mr. GARLAND,] to a distinguished citizen of his
State, who is the president of one of its banks.
The gentleman said that Dr. Brockenbrough was the
pgent for paying pensions in Virginia, and derived
certain advantages from the agency. Now the fact
was, Dr. B. as an individual, had no more to do
with it than the gentleman himself. The money was
deposited in the bank of which he is president, and
as president of the bank only has he any agency.
When the agent appointed for that purpose cerli-
fled a claim for a pension, Dr. Brockenbrough gave
the claimant a check for the amount due him,
which check boing paid at the counter of the bank,
ended all the agency of Dr. B. in the matter.
The debate was further continued by Messrs.
KIN, when
Mr. GARLAND of Louisiana submitted the
following amendment:
"Be it further enacted, That no money appropri-
ated by this act shall be placed in the hands of
pension agents more than one month before the day
for the semi-annual payment of pensions."
Af er a further debate, in which Messrs. CRAIG,
BEATTY, and SERGEANT, took part,
Mr. UNDERWOOD, after some remarks, sub-
mitted the following amendment to the amend-
ment of Mr. GARLAND: to strike out and insert:
Each pension agent shall be allowed as compen-
sation for h's services per c'nt on the amount
of money disbursed by him: Provided, That ro
pension agent shall receive as compensation more
than 1,500 dollar:: per annum.
Be it further enacted, That it shall be unlawful
for any pension agent to use or apply to his own
purposes, or to lend to any person or persons, or to
suffer any person or persons to ure, any part of the
public moneys placed in his hands or subject to h's
control; and, if any pension agent shall violate the
foregoing provisions of this section, he shall, upon
conviction thereof before any court of competent
jurisdiction, undergo and suffer imprisonment for a
period of time not less than one nor more than five

years, at the discretion of the jury convicting the
Afier a further debate, in which Messrs. LEET,
THOMPSON of South Carolina, JONES of Virgi-
CURTIS, and WHITE, took part,
The committee, without having taken any ques-
tion, rose and reported progress; when,

DICKENS, who draws from nature, has given us,
in his lowest characters, the principles which lurk
in the same species in higher places, and which,
while they make a pickpocket in one grade,
constitute a man who will cheat a nation in ano-
ther. Ther'Editor of the National Intelligencer,
who is so dexterous in shortening pages and work-
ing with false type, to take fhom the public coffers
illicit gains, displays the Artful Dodger's instincts
even in his higher vocation of instructing
the country. Certainly no one but DICKENS'S
Jrtful Dodger could ever turn a corner, and get
out of sight of the hue-and-cry raised after him,
with more adroitness than the artful Editor, who
labors to shun for himself and his Southern advo-
cates the responsibility of aiding and abetting the
Northern faction-made up of bankers, joint stock
companies, political speculators, and their fanatical
dupes-in the attempt to despoil the South of its
rights under the Constitution-of its property-of
the earnings of its industry-of even the blessings of
its soil and climate.
The National In'elligencer stood accused by us
of being the instrument of all the classes and of the
great political party which have so long warred
against the principles and interests of the South;
and we asked, how could Southern men unite with
the inveterate enemies of the South, in support of
the organ which has always concentrated all their
power at the seat of Government to overthrow
its principles and interests? And how does the
National Intelligencer answer the charge? It turns
a corner, and says that the Globe opposed Nullifi-
cation! It did so; and so' did Georgia, Alabama,
North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Mis-
sissippi, and Louisiana. The South opposed
Nullification, and in this the Globe sup-
ported the South. But did not the Editor of
the Globe direct the whole power of his press
to break down the iniquitous tariff which provoked
the remedy proposed by South Carolina?-a wrong
which would have justified the most extreme reme-
dy, if there had been no other redress.
Before the Editor of the Globe left Kentuc-
ky, he helped to organize an opposition to Mr.
CLAY'S sordid scheme of electioneering, couched on
his American system, and by a preamble and reso-
lutions, in which the Tariff was denounced, writ-
ten and presented by himself to a public meeting
held at the seat of Government, contributed some-
thing to arouse the opposition of the Democracy of
the State to a measure,for which Mr.CLAv''s influence
had there commanded a sort of universal acquies-
cence. On establishing the Globe at Washington, its
Editor anticipated the Telegraph in a settled oppo-
sition to the Tariff. But he advocated reduction
and repeal, not Nullification. Upon this point, in
regard to this subject, he split from Mr. CALHOUN
and his friends. It led to a family quarrel among
State Rights men; and, like all family feuds, it was
the bitterest while it endured, and was accompa-
nied with the most intemperate expression of ex-
cited feelings. Happily, however, the heat passed
off in a war of epithets, of which we had our full
share, and something more. Nay, worse: the
stealthy Intelligencer, which was instrumental in
producing the cause of the feud between the two
sections of the Democratic party, came in like the
cunning fox, between the exhausted lion and his
lordly antagonist, and converted the subject of
strife to his own and his party's advantage.
The Nullifiers, we are glad to find, however, are
not unwilling to forgive one who concurred with
them heartily in condemnation of the odious cause
of the dissension, and the effort to throw it off; and
we, on our part, are too conscious of vehemence in
urging our own views, honestly entertained, to
harbor ill will towards any who may have been too
ultra in enforcing them. We can join the Nullifi-
fiers cordially in bringing up for public judgment
the cold-blooded and selfish authors of the criminal
measure which rubbed the South, and endanger.-d
the peace and prosperity of the whole Union; and
do not regret that they have chosen, am( ng the
first, to make an example of the Editor of the Na-
tional Intelligencer, who has been, from the begin-
ning, a prominent agent in every plot to make the
weaker section of the Union a prey to the stronger.
The party of the National Intelligencer, it will
be remembered, would not have been content with
merely driving South Carolina into nullification.
They looked to subjugation as a result. The procla-
mation was not, in its undistorted shape, strong
enough for their purposes, and, by construction, they
sought to make it amount in its doctrines to consoli-
dation. Against this interpretation, the Globe, under
the authority of the author of that State paper, pro-
tested; and if we may trust the good opinions of the
Editorof the Richmond Enquirer, it was the de-
liverance of the proclamatiou from the strained
forest which Mr. WxnsTvE and his organs endea-
vored to impart, that prevented the catastrophe
which the authors of the tariff were willing should
fall upon the country rather than that their favorite
system should sink silently under the stroke of

The card of Mr. PETTRiCe invites to his studio
the lovers of the fine arts, to see his Fisherman's
Daughter, which he has just finished. It is a fine
piece of statuary-simple, chaste, and beautiful in

of those among us, whose means will allow it, di-
rected to give the most durable form to the concep-
tions in which ihe genius of an artist can embody it-
self, and which, surviving from age to ge, outliving
governments and nations, will remain as exem-
plars of the civilization that gave them birth, to
awaken, after a night of barbarism, a renovated
feeliegin new races of men for the elegant tastes
which embellish our nature.


Messrs. BLAIR and RivEs: Plea'e oblige a friend
to Florida by inserting in your wide spread paper
the following brief extract from Senator Beuton's
lastsptech on the Florda Oclcupation bill, and
which forcibly depicts the three gieat characteris-
tics of the bill, namely, CHEAPNESS, EFFI-
CIENCY, and HUMANITY. In th,9e ihr points of view I recommend this brief extract to
every friend of Florida.
"The plan is efficient, cheap, humane, and
framed on a principle to insure success, and to
cost nothing if it does not succeed. It is efficient,
because the ten thousand men will go. It i<
cheap, for the men are to be paid out of the land
wh ch they conquer, and will take but four mil-
lions oat of twenty-six millions which they will
conquer. It will insure its own success, for the
settlers are to get no land until the country is
pacified. It is to cost nothing, if it does not suc-
ceed, for unless the men go, they get no rations;
unless they remain until the country is pacified,
they get no land. It is thi most humane, for it
relies upon the plough and the axe to come in aid
of Ihe sword and the gun. It is a good plan, and
only asks for a fair trial, accomplishing every
thing if it succeeds, and costing nothing it it does

The writer of the letters, (addressed to a gentle-
man in this city,) from which the following passa-
ges are extracted, was but a few weeks since an
ardent Clay Whig. The reader will perceive
what a decided tone he takes towards Gen. Harri-
son. He complains that he has no press to publish
his disquisitions. We tell him at once that this pa-
per is open to him, and we expect much from his
experienced mind and able pen.
EXTRACT.-"I was always opposed to Harrison.
My vote in the doubtful ticket in 1836 was ex-
pressly endorsed to. be for "Judge White, and no
other." My principles differ on every possible
ground, and light and tint and shade, from General
Harrison. I was present in the Senate of the Uni-
ted Slates when Mr. John Randolph and General
Harrison had that sparring about their poli-
tics in '99 and 1800, and in which Harrison admit-
ted, (in March 1826,) that he approved old John
Adams's administration, with the exception of the
sedition law, &c. Mr. Randolph charged home
upon him on the petition of the "free blacks;" in
which he recounted his (Harrison's) conversations
with Mr. Nicholas of Virginia, and Virginia poli-
tics, and her negroes, which Mr. Harrison said
was irue-that he was "joking!" I change no po-
litics, but I will not vote for Harrison nor for Ty-
ler. If I felt interest in this contest, I could give
you ammunition enough, and I would not supply
blank cartridges either. I have entertained such
abhorrence of the men in power, that I did not sup-
pose'it would be possible for me to regret their sub-
stitution by the devil, with his horns upon him, and
all his imps in the bargain. But I should regard
the election of Gen. Harrison as that heaviest of all
calamities that can now befall the country. I may
take up my pen to show and PROVE it, if I had any
means of communicating fully and fairly my

RESUMPTIOe MEETINo.-One of the largest and
most enthusiastic meetings of the Democratic citi-
zens of the city and county of Philadelphia, ever
convened at so short a notice, was held at the De-
mocratic Head Quarters, Holahan's, last evening.
At a very early hour the meeting was organized
by calling on the Hon. George M. Dallas to pre-
side. The meeting was addressed by the Hon. C.
J. Ingersoll, Mr. Miller, Mr. Kelly, Mr. Farrell,
Mr. Dallas, and by Col. Page.
Resolutions were adopted in favor, of an imme-
diate resumption of specie payments by the banks;
also approving of the conduct of the sixty-nine
members of the House of Representatives of Penn-
sylvania who voted for the resumption bill, and
particularly of the course of the eight Democratic
members from the county of Philadelphia, and th.
three Senators from the county; and the most de-
cided approval of the bold and fearless stand taken
by Mr. Charles Brown of the Senate, and by Mr.
Pennimnan of the House.
The house was filled to overflowing; great num-
beers were entirely unable to get in the crowded
rooms, and we are convinced, Irom the enthusiasm
and unanimity displayed last evening, that there
is no matter on which the Democratic party are
more united than an immediate and entire resump-
tion by the banks.
From the New York Evening Post.
A man in East Boston, in the month of January,
when the roads were blockaded with snow, and the
waters of the sound obstructed with ice, and the
regular communication with this city was inter-
rupted, wrote letters to one of our morning and one
our evening papers, in which he complained of the
irregularity of the mails. Both prints happening
to be of the Whig party, took occasion to assail
Mr. Kendall in very abusive terms for not paying
better attention to the transmission of newspapers.
We have no sort of objection to hear the Post
Office Department censored when there is any good
reason for it, any want of punctuality, or any cause
of irregularity or tardiness, which proper attention
can remedy. But to make the Postmaster General
responsible for snow storms, and for the caprices of
the thermometer, is a little two much. Take what
precautions we will, the roads will be sometimes
obstructed with snow, and the mails will be stopped
or delayed because they cannot be carried, or can
be carried but slowly. If the mercury in the ther-
mometer will descend below zero, and freeze the

From (the Lstangtn (ra.) Star.
The condition of this Territory inow becoming
a subject of great political interest,and will lead to
a struggle, in which the South expects all her sons
to doltheir duty, and in which it is already seen that
the Northern Democracy will give her a steady
support. The discussion, and the newspaper ar-
ticles which the bill for the "ARMED OCCUPA-
TION" of that Terrritory has called forth, show,
that there is an organized political opposition to
the settlement, and its erection into State Govern-
ments. The Abolitionists and Whigs are united
in this opposition; and for proof of this, we refer
among-other things, to the speeches of Col. Ben-
ton, and others, in the Senate-their votes-and the
language of their newspapers. We say that a great
struggle is preparing, for which the Whigs and
Abolitionists are already organized, on the sub-
ject of Florida, while the South is compara-
tively asleep. The two Floridas contain about
70,000 square miles, of which about 45,000 are
now overrun by the Indians. These 70,000 square
miles, are divided into two portions-geographi-
cally and politically requiring different Govern.
ments. One part is a peninsula running five de-
grees down to tihe south, the other is a strip of ter-
ritory on the Gulf coast, running far west. To
unite two such portions is to unite extremes, which
are six hundred miles apart, and to subject the
weaker to the dominion and oppression of the
From the time that new States began to be ad-
mitted in addition to the "old Thirteen," from that
time it has been the fixed policy of the UNION to
admit a slave and a free State at the same time.
Thus Kentucky and Vermont came in together;
Ohio and Tennessee followed; Alabama and Illi-
nois, Louisiana and Indiana, Missouri and Maine,
Arkansas and Michigan. Thus the Union kept its
parts even, and to do so, twice have the New Eng-
land States divided their small States and made them
less. Vermont and Maine were both divided from
other States to make new ones, to balance, in the
Senate at least, the new large slaveholding States.
Now for the application of these historical facts:
Florida divided will make two States, each larger
than six of the Northeastern States; each of them
larger than Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ver-
mont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Delaware.
Each of the two States into which the Floridas
would be divided, would be large and respectable
States, and every earthly consideration requires
them to be divided. Behold the Northwest! Two
non-slaveholding States almost ready for admis-
sion into the Union! Iowa and Wisconsin are al-
ready knocking at the gates of the Union for ad-
mission; and shall not the two Florida States be
ready to enter wi.h them? That question must
now be tried. The timid cannot avoid it-the com-
promisers cannot get rid of it. The struggle is
now going on, on one side-the other side sleeps.
The enemy are upon us-we must wake up and
face the contest, which no art, no timidity, no
over cautions, no pusillanimous councils, on our
part, can keep off. The Abolitionists and Whigs
are united, and work together incessantly to keep
Florida, unsettled, and to prevent one, much le's
two States, from beihg organized there. Hence
the opposition to settling the country with armed
settlers, and giving them land for maintaining pos-
session of it.
Of all the measures of the South, the SETTLE-
MENT and DIVISION of Florida into two States
is the most important; settlement is the first stop
in the great measure, and this the Senator's bill
provides for. The Opposition oppose it to a man-
let the South improve upon this example. The
battle is now actually going on, while the South is
not waked up to the contest. How long will she
sleep? How long permit Florida to remain depo-
pulated-the inhabitants of five counties to be
exiled from their homes? How long permit 45,000
square miles to remain unsettled, while Iowa and
Wisconsin are daily receiving masses of emigration
-encouraged by the pre-emption laws? To settle
Florida is the first object of the South-to settle it,
arid to divide it, is necessary to the equilibrium
and safety of the Union. Abolition ii in arms-it
is now strong in its alliance with Whigery-and
to prevent the settlement and division of Florida,
is now its ruling and supreme object. Never did
the equilibrium, and safety of this Union demand a
measure so strongly as it now demands the settle-
ment and division of this Territory; and blind is
any'Southern man that does not see it-and dead
to imminent danger, if he do not rouse up to
For his exertions on this subject the South owes
to Colonel Benton a debt of gratitude, which we
feel sure she Will richly repay at a future time.

Washington, Feb. 7, 1840.
I NFORMATION has been received that, in con-
formity to an adjustment which has been ef-
fected with the British Government of the amount
to be paid to the owners of the slaves in the cases
of the Comet and Encomium, payment has been
made to the bankers of the United States at
To enable those concerned to bring forward their
claims, the basis upon which the adjustment was
made is here stated.
1. The whole number of slaves shippedon board
the Comet, in the District of Columbia, was 164,
and a child was born on the passage, making in all
165. From this number 19 were deducted for
whom no compensation was allowed, v'z: 11 that
escaped from the vessel as fugitives, while in cus-
tody of their owners, and before seizure by the co-
lonial authorities; 5 that returned to servitude in
the United States, and did not remain at Nassau,
and 3 that died, (including the infant boin on the
passage,) leaving 146 of the Comet's cargo to be
paid for. Insurance having been made on that
number, valued at $70,000, that amount was taken
as the value of the 146 slaves for whom compensa-
tion was to be made of the Comet's cargo.
2. The number of slaves on boaid the Enco-
mium was 45. For 33 of these onily ci mpensalion
was made, on the ground that 12 had returned with
their owners to the Unitod States. Of ihe whole
number 13 only had been injured, at the value of
*6,200. Assuming the same rate of valuation for
the residue, the amount allowed for the cargo of the
Encomium was *15,739. To these snms interest at 4

per centum, from the time of seizure until the pro-
bable time of payment, estimated at 27,360, was
added, and for expenses at Nassau $1,900.
Those interested in the cargoes of the above
named vessels, will transmit to the Department of
State the evidence necessary to establish their right
to indemnity, and to enable the Department to
make an apportionment of the money to be paid;
which will be taken into consideration as soon as
the claimants for each vessel, respectively, have
field their applications at the Department. The
parties interested are earnestly requested to attend
to this notice without delay. Feb ll-eol0t

"- I jespectfully calls the atiren io of the cotton
planters to a repeating cotton clean, r or thrasher,
r separating the leaves, sand, trash and dirty par
t Miles iom seed L :J.iI, before it passes to the gin,
newly invented by Jacob Idler, of Philadelphia, fuor
which he has received a patent.
It is well known that the price of cotton is in
ywportion to its cleanliness and quality; if the early
oa first picking has many broken, dead leaves and
sm=ll trashy particles in it, it is worth, according to
lhb greater or less quantity it contains, from 1 to
4 cents less than that which is clean and free of it.
It is also well known to the skilful planter, that
saws will carry the principal- part of the dead
leaves, dirt and small trashy particles through with
the cotton, and according to the greater or less
quantity in it fixes the price ofthe cotton. The first
piekinrg clear of leaves and trashy particles is term-
ed tlerst quality; that pat tly leaves and trash, second
qu"i'ty; and that which contains still more leaves
a iI rash, third and fourth. To pick the leaves
tnd trash out of it by hand is an endless task, and
answers only a small purpose, and no planter can
spare that time. After cotton is hand picked it is
thrown on the floor i. the gin-house and all the
trashy particles will adhere to it. This difficulty
and losses in quality are now overcome by this. cot-
ton cleaner.
The repeating cotton cleaner is a strong, com-
pact, iron framed machine, as long as the gin
itinod. It is set on the floor in the cotton loftabove
tae em, so placed as to throw the leaned cotton
own into the hopper of the gin. It runs very
mght, wmih a black band of 4 or 5 inches, drove by
the same drum which drives ihe gin, and the same
peed; but it preferred, by a separate drum.
This machine makes the cotton so loose and live.
ly that ihe gin runs much lighter, and gins about
one-third faster than it will with cotton in its raw
unprepared state, as it comes from the field; and
owning to the looseness of the cotton after it has
been cleaned of the trash, it was fully ascertained
tiat it required rather less power to drive the clean-
er and the gin than it did to gin the cotton inits raw
uncleaned state; the cotton being so loose and lively
the roll seldom breaks, and gives less trouble to
feed the gin.
The beneficial effect on cotton by this repeating
cleaner has been amply tested on the plantations of
P. M. Lapice, esq. in Concordia, opposite Natchez,
one of the ablest and most skilful planters. He
gave it the first trial, arid had reserved above 7000
pounds of partially trashy seed cotton, and to prove
the effect of this machine he weighed off two equal
parcels; one he ginned on one of his seventy-saw
gins, in its raw state by itself, and the other was
passed through the cleaning machine and ginned
on the same gin; and to prove its effect still further,
he had some of the late cotton remaining in the
fie d in February last, and that which was thrown
about on the ground by the wind and rains, gath-
ered in the dirty state it was. He had also some
of that ginned in the raw state and kept separate,
and the rest was pas-ed through the cleaner. The
difference between the two was great, and proved
that the cotton which was passed through the clean-
er was so well cleaned of the dead leaves, dirt and
small trashy particles, and made it a clet., 'r
cotton compared to that which was ginned in the
usual raw state.
In consequence 'of these trials he ordered two
more to be made for his use, and orders from others.
On the strength of these trials, J. E. Davis, esq.
near Warrenton, Mi. a very eminent planter, got
Stwo of said machines, as he had a part of his
clean and early picked seed cotton unginned,
about 100,000 pounds, aiid to convince him-
self of the difference it would make in the early and
clean picked cotton he had some ginned separate
in the state it was, and the same quantity
passed through the cleaning machine and ginned
on the same gin; the difference of the cleanness of
that which had been passed through the clearing
machine, was much greater than was expected in the
early clean picked cotton. The inventor was pre-
sent to see 24 bales ginned; by showing the sam-
ples to some of the best judges at New Orleans,
they made a difference of two cents in favor of
that which had passed through said cleaner; and
with the late picking or inferior trashy cotton, and
that which has been beaten on the ground by
rains and storms, the difference will be proportion-
ably greater, and all that class can now be made a
fair merehaniat-le article with this machine. An-
other advantage to planters is in picking the cotton,
particularly the latter part of the crop; they need
not to be so particular of picking it clean of the
*rashy particles, as this machine will clean it out;
They can therefore pick much faster, and get it out
of the field three or four weeks sooner.
There has been various kinds of thrashing ma-
chines, but all twist the cotton and clean but little
per day, and that only partially; but this repeating
cleaner cannot twist or hurt the cotton the least,
as it gives only a tossing up and forward and back-
ward motion.
This machine will also answer a good purpose for
those who re-press cotton, as all the outside of the
bales which get muddy and wet;, when taken off
and dried, this machine will clean it and put it in
a loose state, and make it a useful article.
They are made of different sizes, some right and
some left hand, to suit a right or left hand gin; they
are very strong, and not liable to get out of order
when managed by the most awkward negro; they are
simply set plumb and straight on the floor in the
cotton loft over the gin, or on two short pieces of
4 or 6 inch scantling laid on the loor,soplaced as to
receive the band, and that the cotton can drop or
slide down to the gin. To feed the clean-r is light
work for a weak steady hand; the operations is
simple; he fills along trough ormeasure moderate-
ly full with seed cotton, and throws it into the hop-
per of the cleaner, and after thecottonhas revolved
for about two seconds, according to the trashiness of
the cotton, he then draws a string by a ring to
catch into a hook, which opens the front door,
and lhe cleaned cotton passes out said door, and
the d'-ad leaves, dirt, and trashy particles has pass-
ed through open grates and selves down under the
cleaner; boxes may be put there to receive it, and
during the time the cleaned cotton passes out, he
fills his trough again, and as soon asit has passed
out, he unhooks the ring which shuts again the
front door; at the same time he throws in the next
trough full, but not before the previous one has
passed out, because if two troughs full are in at
one time, the cotton 'has in that case not room
enough to be cleaned well of leaves, trash, &c. and
so le continues regularly, by putting in a'trough full
at a time. The cleaners are cased in so close that
the person who feeds them has less dust than by gin-
ning raw cotton; the dust is drove down into the
magazine, under the cleaner into boxes; by ap-
plying a flue all will pass down through it.
The cotton ought to be well dried; the drier it is
the better it will clean off the leaves and trashy par-
ticles from it; it takes out all the dead leaves, ex-
'cept some small flakes, where the cotton has
wrapped itself completely around it, or enveloped
it. These few pass out with the cotton; their num-
ber being so small, and having been crumbled by the
motion, the most of them pass off with the seeds in
When the seed cotton is put into the feeding
trough, nails, or any hard substance to injure the
gin saws is discovered. And after the cotton has
passed through said cleaner, itis loose and lively, in
separate small locks; in this state, the saws can
take off the cotton faster and better thIan when it is
in its raw state in lumps, and matted together by
laying in a mass in the ginhouse. By the many
trials, by good judges, it proves to be the best way
to improve the cotton, to get it cleaner, and to gin
fast; and it is the opinion cotton carefully passed
through this machine, by ginning on a good gin 70
to 100 bales, the difference in the quality will pay
for said cleaner.

It is also well worth the attention of the Sea
Island cotton planters to pass the cotton through
this cleaner; it will save them 5-6 part of hand
picklnz. and the rollers will clean it much faster
and better, as the operation of the machine cannot
hurt or injure the staple the least. It simply sepa-
rates each quarter section of a pod in smaller parts
of one or two seeds, together with its cotton on it;
and, being a passing motion, it lays the staple in
a straight direction; and when it passes through
the rollers, there being n i cotton wrapped round
the heel of the seed, t therefore can break no part
of staple, as it does by ginning it in the old way,
as it comes from the field, where the whole quarter
section of a pod comes before the rollers in clusters,
the seed being forced back through all the cotton
wrapped round them, breaks the staple, as the
seeds have to force their way through it, which is
not the case when the sections or clusters of cotton
are divided. The inventor has been for many
years employed by the manufacturers in Europe to
: select and purchase Sea Island cotton for them,
The machines of twb cylinders are sufficient for
Sea Island cotton, and can be driven by a boy
where there is no horse power.
These machines are made with 2 and some with
SE cylinders-; both kinds answer the purpose; as the
diameter of those with 2 are larger than those with
c Cylinders, the latter is preferable for very trashy
cotton, but cot proportionably more,

"( C. 1TON i N.-Meiat CylinderConionGns,
With the latest improvements, manufactured
by Win. Idler, cof Philadelphia, in Willow street, first
door beow Sixth street. It is well known that the
cylinder oa which the saws are fastened and fixture
of gin ribs are the most essential parts of a gin.
The saws have heretofore been fastened in wood,
in different ways, but the shrinking and giving of
the wood in dry weather, and expanding in damp,
cause the saws to deviate more or less. Fot, this
reason many do not pass in the centre of the space
between the gin ribs, and pass too near on one or
the other side of the gin ribs, which naps the cot-
ton in passing, and forces it into the teeth of the
saws, and causes the many little knots, which soon
ruins the gin and hurts the cotton. Thisdifficul'y,
which injures the cotton and the gin, is now over-
come by the metal cylinder. The whole fixture of
the saw cylinder is metal, with strong shafts, best
polished cast steel saws of entire circles, fastened
by a newly constructed metal segment, with bear-
ings of a particular construction, and a shaft which
causes the saws to keep always araight, and pre-
vents them from buckling by mtwains, invented by
Jacob Idler, for which he rtseved a patent. The
saws cannot vary the least, ,,ai must pass directly
in the centre of the spce between the gin ribs;
every saw must do its don, and cannot nap of
hurt the cotton; and, xvwrefore gin faster and
make good cotton, ai4 last for a long time, as
every part is strong ati 4f the best materials, with
movable boxes to ,." it to any ono's taste. As
soon as the gin lins begin to be worn, the cylinder
can easily be raised one-fourth of an inch, and set
as before, in order to change the passage for the
cotton between the ribs a little above or below the
former worn place, and the ribs will last three
times longer than the old way. The brush shaft is
made to traverse a little, and does not strike the
saws always at one fixed point, and lasts much
longer. When the brushes are much worn they
can be clipped with a straight edge, and the brushes
moved forwards; and, as they have moveable boxes,
will then answer the same as new ones. The
boxes have oil caps, which prevent the danger of
fire by friction.
Also, Hand Gins, from eighteen to twenty saws,
to suit the South American market.
Also, improved Iron Portable Horse Power to
drive gins, so constructed that it can be placed in
or outside the gin house, as the weather has no
effect on it; it takes a lever from nine to fourteen
feet, can be set up or taken down in a few hours;
no part weighs more than two hundred and thirty
pounds, and can be carried by mules over a moun-
tainous country.
Also, Portable Iron and Wooden Presses, to
pack cotton into small bales, to suit the South
American and West India markets. No part
weighs more than a mule can carry. Also, large

The proprietor of this medicine, having witness-
ed, with much pain, the great and increasing de-
struction of the life and health of so many of his
fellow beings by Consumption, Bronchitis, and the
various and numerous other diseases of the Lungs
and Windpipe, was inrndueed to direct his attention
and inquiries to the discovery of a more efficacious
remedy than has heretofore been presented to th
With much care, consultation, and study, he has
prepared a medicine, which he now presents to an
intelligent and discerning public, with the utmost
confidence in its virtues and success in the cure of
the diseases for which it is recommended-and
which he is willing to submit to the most scruti-
nizing test of the Medical Faculty, and to rest its
reputation upon their decision. ... .
It contains no ingredients that can impair :he
constitution under any circumstances. It will bie
found greatly serviceable in Colds, Coughs, and all
diseases of the Lungs and Bionchia, such as
Phthisic, Asthma, Whooping Cough, Croup,
Acute and Chronic inflammationsof the Lungs antd
By the DYSPEPTIC it has been used with de-
cided advantage, and is serviceable to persons la-
boring under debility of any kind, if tsfd according
to the directions. To the CONSUMPTIVE, it has
invariably afforded almost immediate relief, and in
several instances has wrought a permanent cure
It is not, however, expected to effect a cure upon
such as are in the last stages of the disease; but
even to such, it will be found to give much relief,
and greatly prolong that remnant of life which has
become so nearly extinguished by the dread de-

STOVE-For producing an equal distribu
tion of heat in Rooms, Halls,Academies, Churches,
Steamboats, Railroad Cars, &c. Also, for warm-
inr several apartments by one stove.-Combining
allthe advantages of the Stove and Furnace.
A lot of the above invaluable Stoves has been
received, and for sale at Francis Naylor's Tin
and Sheet Iron Factory, Pennsylvania avenue,
South side, near Tnird street, west. Comfort,
economy, and neatness, combined; all who have
an eye to those three essentials, would do well to
call and examine before purchasing other Stoves.
1. Durability.-The case can never burn out.
The interior Stove is rendered stronger and more
durable by the patent flange conductors.
2. Comfort.-It distributes a mild, summer-like
temperature equally in every part, so that it is not
uncomfortable near the Stove, from the heat, nor
uncomfortable at a distance, from the cold.
3. Economy.-A considerable amount of fuel is
saved by securing the radiated heat usually lost.
4. Security.-No injury is done to furniture or
goods by radiation.
5. Convenicnce.-Several apartments may be
heated agreeably by one Stove. Though intended
for the Parlor and Hall, it may, if preferred, be
used to heat them from below, in the manner of a
6. Cleanness.-No dust from the coal is thrown
out, nor does the exterior of the Stove lose its color
rom heat.
7. Ease of management.-The management is
simple and similar to that of a common Stove.
8. Ventilation.-I has an arrangement lor ad-
mitting the air to be heated, in any way desired.
From J. B. Burleigh, esq. No. 29, Fayette street,
"Mr. Miller put up his Patent Air-heating Stove
in my office about two months ago. It keeps up a
lively circulation of heated air, and has decided
advantages over any that I have ever seen in use
in regard to health, comfort, and economy.-March
From Rev. E. Hutchinson, Principal of JAcademy,
Fayette street, Baltimore.
"I have used Mr. Miller's newly invented Air-
heating Stove for several months, and am con-
vinced that it is much superior to every other Stove
that I have seen. It is so constructed that it may
be made to heat several rooms with very little extra
expense. I cordially recommend it to the public"
From AMr. D. Barnumn, Proprietor of the City Hotel,
"I put up two of Mr. Miller's Air-heating
Stoves in my City Hotel, and have found them
admirably adapted both to large and small rooms,
in preserving an equallity if temperature, and in my
opinion more conducive to health and comfort than
tne ordinary Stoves. I think them also much more
economical in respect to saving of fuel."
From A lessrs. McLauglin and Stannard.
"We have used Mr. Miller'; Air-heating S'oves,
and our opinion coincides with that expressed
atox e by Mr. Barnum.-Baltimore, Feb. 1839.
Extracts from Public .Notices.
"The invention of' Mr. James Miller of this
city strikes us as being unsurpassed by any of the
modern apparatus for warming apartments. It
diffuses a mild and uniform heat throughout the room,
and is so constructed that two apartment may be
heated with it at about the same expense of fuel as
is required in odmnarv Stoves for one."
Baltimore Transcript and Comn. Gazette.
"We attended the examination of an Air heat-
ing Stove placed in the Reading room of Mr. Bar-
num's City Hotel. It has a decided superiority
over every other Stove which we have seen.

From Rev. A. C. Thomas, Philadelphia.
"I have had opportunities of witnessing the ope-
ration of Mr, Miller's Air-Heating Stove, and have
no hesitation in recommending it for several desira-
ble qualities: 1st, The inconvenience and discom-
fort of radiation is nearly avoided, thus adapting
the stove to school rooms and meetings for public
wors-hip, and 2d, the fuel con-umed is considerably
less than was required to produce an equal degree
of heat, by the Stove removed to make room fur
Mr. Miller's improvement.-AMarch, 139.
Extract from a letter of Rev. S. W. Fuller, Phila-
"DEAR SIR: The model of Air-Heating Stove,
submitted to my examination last winter, led me
to believe that in several essential provisions it

superior properties was suon after fully confirmed
by seeing one of theStoves in operation. Yunr f-
forts and success in providing a Stove so well cal-
culated to promote the comfort ot your fellow-citi-
zeus, deserve, and I doubt not will receive the pa-
tronage of a discerning public."-I-May, 1839.

IN the midst of a general and, in many instances

are not only regularly recommended and prescribed
by the most experienced physicians in their daily
practice, but also taken by those gentlemen them-
selves, whenever they feel the symptoms of ihose
diseases in which they well know them to be effi-
cacious. He knows this to be generally the case
in New York, Philadelphia, Albany, Bo-ton, and
other large cities, in which they have an extensive
sale. That they should thus conquer professional
prejudice and interested opposition, aid secure
the agency of the most eminent and test informed

undeniable and pre-eminent virtues.
Letter from the Hon. Abraham M'Clellan, Sullivan
county, East Tennessre, Member of Congress.
Wa,-hn,:m. r,, July 3d, 1838.
Sir-Since I have been in this city, I have used
some ofyour Dyspeptic medicine with infinite bene-
fit anti satisfaction, and believe it to be a most
valuable remedy. One of my constituents, Dr. A.
Caider, of Campbell county, Tennessee, wrote me
to send him some, which I did, and he has em-
ployed it very tuitc ,-iut, in liut practice, and says
it is invaluable. iMr. Jui-t n, your agent at this
place, thinks you would probably like an agent in
Tennessee. If so, I would recommend Dr. A.
Carden as a proper person to officiate lor the sale
of your celebrated medicine. Should you commis-
sion him, he is willing to act lor you. You can
send the medicine by water to the care of Robert
King 8" Sons, Knoxville county, Tennessee, or by
land to Graham & Houston, Tazewell, East Tenn.
I have n-# doubt but if you had agents in several
counties in East Tennessee, a great deal of your
medicine would be sold. I am going to take some
of it home with me for my own use, and that oi
my friends, and should like to hear from you
whether you would like an agent at Bluntville,
Sullivan county, East Tenn. I can get some of the
merchants to act ftor you, as I live near there.
Yours respecfully,
