I AIR TONIC.-For producing a fine growth
Sof Hair, many testimonials accompany each
bottle. The following is from a, disinterested
source, is worthy of attention.
JAYNE's HAiRa ToNic.-We havr, heretofore
numbered ourselves among these who believed that
"Alibert's Hair Tonic," sold by Dr. Jayne, was
one of the many quack nostrums whose virtues
are never seen beyond the fulsome puffs of their
authors. We are willing, at lengithl, to make pub-
lic acknowledgment of the error of cur 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 jesting
and ridicule of the tlea of attempting !o 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 genit-man can be pointed out. What
is more in favor of this "Tonic," the case here
cited was not one of temporary baldness-no -sud-
den loss of the hair-but was one of years' stand-
ing, though the -rl.ii.inma is but forty-live years of
age.-Philadelphia Spirit oftlhe Times o"f Oct. 21,1839.

THE ABOLITION RESOLUTIONS.
We give tc-day an extended sketch of the doing'
in the As-e-.b'y on Wednesday, to which we al-
luded yes erday. We have dent so under the be-
lief that a report of the pro'eedines, as they actu-
ally took place, wou'd present an iu-tructive, if no'
amusintg .spect, o' the true character and designs
of Fe-eralism, under the exhilaration of a tem-
porary amc,',.!!t, .. We should have been willing
to have .uli e I t v whole to ga to the public with-
out a word of corm'nn', but for the attempts of
the "S aee Barber," through a garbled and one-
siled report of the affair, to place the minority of
the House in a false po-ition.
The movement was altogether a party move-
ment. It was so in every sen-e and in the worst
s nse c-f the word. It wat, at best, a contemptible
pirty device-to diive the Democratic. members to
a vo e against thi abstract "right of petitiiiun." or
to votef:b the mi-s'atements of fact with which a
pretended assertion of the "right" was coupled.
We believe, with the Dem-cratic member front
Delaware. that tie ,rtifice wall b,, perfectly under-
s'o d, and thoroughly despised, by the people; and
ihat where it gains or retains one Abolitionist to
,he proligr.te faction now in the ascendency in this
State, it will disgust tan persons who lcok beyond
such c, naidera i-ns to the airrqimit'o% of the coun-
ry and the preservation of the Union.
The Evening Journal says we were in "the lobby"
against the resolution". No doubt the worthy
-.....I r 'cipient for services in that department, is
vi r.- to drag others into an arena uhaere he has
acquirett, if not rewards, certainly disgrace; hut
we disclaim the imputation. We have had no
conversation with niembers on the subject; nor
have we interfered with the course of the resolu-
tions in any manner. All that we have said and
done in relation to the matter, has been as open
and public as the columns of a newspaper could
make it. C.-.n the busy, intriguing Sate Barber"
say as much? But we have no concealments on
the stiiaj-ct. We de piae Ihe hypocri-y and pre-
tence of the party charlatans by whom the resclu-
t ons were thrown upon the Leg'slature for no g od
er public purpose; and in the form in which they
chose to irge them thrutign, for a mere party ob
jeer, by the aid of the GAGu, and the previous Ques-
tion, we should have voted against them. But we
occord full justice to the course and moDives of the
Democratic members who preferred to vote for
them, rather than suffer themnnelves to be place in
a false position in relation to ih2 right of petition.

As a proof of what is going on in Ohio, we will
-tate that the Abolition papers, the Elyria Atlas,
the Ntw L -bon Aurcra, the Xenia Free Press,
hrivea nil, w thin a lfea days. hoisted lie Harrison
fli,, but o-nit the name of any Vice Pme;ident.
They date nit put up Tyler, but go the electoral
ticket .hat will vo'e for him.
In add-tion to this, the Philanthropist of Cincin-
nati, of the 411 inst. has more than three columns
fior the ptnrp ise of making G,:n. Harris -n what he
should be for the support of the Abahlitions's, and
rrovieg, by Harriton's own showing, that he wa.
an Abohiioi t many years aga, an I belonged to a
ioci-ty as early as bhe eighteenth year of nis age.
The object of these things cannot be mistaken, Le;
the fiend' of the Uni n, therefore, be up and doing
in time. This que-aion mit be met openly, firmly

account of the ill health of the editor, Mr. Brown-

nuii,br of the continuation, that for January, was
reeive4 from the agents in thi city, Messrs. Kay

but was accidentally mi lrid. It is not too late, how-
ever, now to mtentfon that it presents all thrse claim-s
to the attet on of thinking readers which distinguish
the previ-us numbers, and gave its editor a high
rank among the ab!e t men Of the day, both for ite-
rry ability and a thorough acqutaintance with poli-
tical econony.

Tr, HIGR WATER has done much damage
aiong the course of the Juniata. The Lewistown
Republican and the Mifflintown Times both de-
scribe the scene as terrific. At the former place,
the river rose fourteen feet in twelve hours, and
the persons living in the "long narrows" had
scaice time to remove their families up the side of
the mountain. It is supposed the canal has beon
munrch injured. It is completely overflowed. The
bridge at Miffln'own has lost two of its arches,
aumi the remainder, it is feared, will fail.
On the Susquot'anna very li'tle damage has
bhe-.n dore. On ihe North Branch we hear of no
material i.juries, amid the West Bianch the same.
The dam ani canal from Clart's Ferry to Colum-
bia have escaie t damage, as has also the bridge at
Duncan's Iland.
From ho country on ilhe Juniata, above Lewis-
town, we have information that leads iv I to believe
serious damage has been done alone t-at river.

HARRaISO WHIG CONVENTION-OFiCI sHOLDERs
AND OFFICE SEEK&K as.-Our Federal Whig neigh-
bors affect an entire disregard Of the honors and
emoluments of office, and prifess to be governed
by but one principle, the public good. They are
constantly declaiming against office holders and
office seekers, but the following simple sta'emtnt
will show how far their professions are sincere.
From the single town of Cleveland, thea late Harri-
son County convention appoiLtcd as delega'ei to
the State convention seven bank director-, fi-e

Tle Wheelirg Times says, that "the charge
that the Wh;gs are Abolitionists, is a slander."
That is the Ty!er game the other sile of the river,
we suppo e. Such tricks might do if started six
weeks before an election, but the lamb's c vering
wi:l be stripped off of the deceivers before nexi
fall. Here the Abolition papers hoist the Harrison
flg, DICmand umit the name of Tyler! Do sensi-
ble men suppo-se that such a shallow game can de-
ceive an intelligent people?-Ohio S:atesman.
The last Wabash (Ia.) Enquirer states that the
Olive Branch, a Whig paper published at Rock-
vil!e, in Parke county, has, since the nomination of
Gen. Harrison, csme out boldly for Mr. Van Bu-
ren and an Independent Trea'ury. Had the Con-
vention nominated Mr. C ay, or, in fact, any other
-han Harrison, the Olive Branch would, in all pro-
bability, have teen Federal still; but the editor
could not act in concert with the Abolitionists, and
support a man who was in favor of i.iiint hi- '. tie
fellow men into bondage, because thiy were poor
and in debt. This is but a"beginning of the end."
[A.Lton Commercial Gazette.
We learn by the repo t of the Secretary of the
Treasury, that the losses sustained by the failures en
the part of impoertcs to pay their duty bonds
amount to about seven millions and a half of do'-
lars. A larger sum has not be n abstracted by the

ment to the present day; but mote has been lost by
usiny banks as agents, than in any oilier way.

ing over the election of this ind-lividual tV- Ihe Uni-

Such sort of "skill," it may agree with Federal

practise. The past history of the country affords

RIGHT OF PETITION.

REMARKS OF MR. HENDERSON,
OF MISSISSIPPI.
In Senate, Thursday, Feb. 13, 1840.-On the r'ght
of petition, in Ieply to Messrs. CLAY, WCBSTER,
and TALLMADGE.
Mr. PRESIDENT: I rise to participate in this de-
ba'e, so far only as the question is supposed to in-
volve the right of petition, and the policy of our
action here, in reference to that view of the subject.
The honorable Senators, from Massachusets,
[Mr. WEBSTER,] and fiom New York, [Mr. TALL-
MAnDGE,] seem to regard a refusal by Congress to
the presentment of petitions for the abolition of
slavery, as an infraction of that right, whilst the
honorable Sernator from Kentucky [Mr. CLAY] has,
witk his accutttm,,d eloquence, and much plausi-
bility, expressed his apprehension that the people
of the South, in claiming even their rights-i here
with too fastidious exaction, may diminish their
friends in the North, by permitting the Abolition-
iqts the advantage of involving, with their primary
question, the more popular one of the right of peti.
tion, and that many will probably make common
cause on the right of petition, and persist in assert-
ing that principle he-re, who would not concur in
the particular proposition on which this right is so
frequently debated.
I propose a brief discussion of these two ques-
tions; and first, as to the right of petition.
The following is the amendatory article of th-
Constitution of the United States, in which the
right is said to be secured:
"ART. i. Congress shall make no law respecting
an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of
speech, or of the press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble and to petition the tovein-
ment for a redress of grievances."
In respect to the right of petition, what does this
article propose? It does not attempt to specify the
measure, or the extent of the right, or to what sub-
jects it shall appertain. It does not attempt to spe-
cify what are the duties and obligation of Congress
in the reception of petitions, or the measure of re-
dress which Congress may, can, or shall afford.
The right secured by this article is simply an iat-
miunity on the part of the people from any law ema-
nating from Congress abridging the popular rights
"peaceably to assemble and petition Government for
redress of grievances." Whilst Congress abstains
from making any such prohibitory law, are not
all the obligations which this article imposes upon
Congress duly resp-cted? It must be observed that
this article contains no grant ofpmower to Congress; it
does not enlarge the sphere of its duties-it brings no-
thing within the jurisdiction of Congress not other-
wise conferred by the Constitution; it doesn't multi-
ply the subject's on whtch it is permitted to give audi-
ence, indulge debate, or grant relief. No such
thing. It is prohibitory and restrictive on Congress,
so far as power and jurisdiction are concerned. It
observes entire silence as to the several subjects on
which the people may rightfully and appropriately
petition the "Government" of the United States for
relief. These unque-tionably must remain pre.
cisely as if thii prohibitory article on the powers of
Congress had never been inserted in the Constitu-
tion. What criterion, then, is furnished to the
people for the appropriate exercise of their right of
petition? Is not the answer obviously found in
the inquiry as to what Government has the power
to grant redress?
Suppose the grievance complained of be the
statute of Massachusetts recently known as the
fifteenn gallon law Will any constitutional law-
yer contend, or does the most ignorant citizen be-
lieve, that the article of the United Stat's Constrtu-
tioni above quoted has conferred a right on the citi-
zen to come here by petition to have that law abo-
lished? The answer to such a proposition would
seem to me so manifest as to leave no room for
doubt on the subject. If such petition were pre-
sented, what should be not only the right of Con-
gress, but its respectful duty toward a sovereign
State? Should we permit ourselves to receive, re-
fer, report, and debate the propriety of our assum-
ing to correct the legislation of Massachusetts on
this subject? May some half dozen citizens of
Massachusetts come here and claim, as of right, t,
hold the sovereignty of that State in abeyance be-
fore Congress for weeks, and months, and years toge
other, on such a subject, which every citizen feels and
knows we hinve no jurisdiction of? But if the pro-
position arp ars unreasonable in this aspect, how
f, much greater is enormity, when the measure, in-
stead of b-in;, proposed by citizens of Ma.-saichu-
stts, protesting against the grievances of their own
8iale laws, it should turn out that this mal-adminis-
treatioan of affairs there was sought to be corrected
in Congress, on the petition of some score of bac-
chanalians from the shore of the Mississippi?
As I weou'd act, and as I believe ihl Senate
would act in such a case, so, in my judgment, they
ought to act in this.
This, Mr. President, is emphatically a question
of jurisdiction, and the rejection of such petition as
now presented does not a-sail or invade the right of
petition. The whole Fcoppa and extent of the poli-
tical RIsHT of petition, is the rieht to ask redress
from that Government or tribunal having the power
to grant relief.
Common sense, as well as legal and constitu-
tional rules, prescribe this as an essential principle,
and necessary limitation to the right of petition. If
A citizen of thie United States was desirous to ob-
tain a patent r:ght of protection to a mechanic
invention, to be used in the kingdom of Gr'at Bri-
tain, would he, as a matter of common sense and
propriety, retltion that Government or this for the
protection? If a citizen of the United States, of
the Catholic faith, desired some spirilaal iodul-
gence from the church, would he petition the pa-
pal power of Rome, or this Federal Government?
If it were desired by the citizens of New York to
have some new regulation in respect to their public
markets-or on the subject of lamp-'ighting the
streets of that city-is there any among them who,
through ignorance, or in pretending to assert the
right of petition, would come here for redress nt
such grievances? Do any citizens of our country,
reeking to recover debts owing to them by other
citizens, ever assert their right of petition sa un-
advisedly as to ask the judgment of Congress to
award them redres-? All must accord a negative
response to these propositions, and the reason must
as obviously occur to all: namely, in seeking either
favor or redress, the petitioner perceives and acts
upon the necessity to present his solicitations where
the power is vested to grant what is asked for.
I readily admit, that in a complex system of Go-
vernment, there may be evils, for the redress of
which intelligent citizens might mistake the tribu-
nal or auth rity to which they should apply. Nay,
further, that the departments or tribunals themselves
might honrs'ly mistake their own power, and
wrongfully granl or withhold relief. But the diffi-
culty of distinguishing ti-e appropriate tribunal,
having power to grant relief, does not change the
principles of the question. And this rule is par-
ticularly true of the Government of the United
States, which is of limited jurisdiction. It is not
for the Goverment to palter with pretensions to ju-
risdiction, when it is ascertained aot to be within
its granted powers. '[here should be no affected
courtesy to those who would besirge this Senate
into the assertion of unauthorized power, at the
expense of prostrating the sovereiguties who send
us here-and particularly on a question, the right
to legislate on which has been so ofien disclaimed


on all sides, and in which opinion all here concur.
But further, to illustrate this question of juris-
diction in contradistinction to the tight of petition,
it may be observed that all our citizens practically
understand the duplicate form of their Govern-
ment, and readily distinguish the general and ex-
clusive powers that app'rtain to their State Go-
v-rnment fre.m those which belong to the United
States Government. Every citizen knows that the
great body of the laws that prescribe his rights and
duties as a member of society, and the rules and
regulations that control his right and title to pro
perty, emanate from hit own Slate Legislature;
and it seldom occurs (and perhaps has never oc-
curred) that a petition is presented here which so
mistakes its proper direction as to ask reli-f of this
Government in matters respecting which the peti.
tVoner's State Covernment alone possessed the
power to grant relief. And itis perhaps still more
remarkable that neither ignorance or impertinence
has ever perpetrated a petition by citizens of a
State to their own State Legislature, asking the
abolition of any law or institution in another State.
Every citizen of the slaveholding States, if in-
quired of why slavery does not exist in Massa-
chusetts, will answer, because it is proscribed or
abolished by the Government and laws of that
State. And every citizen of the non-slaveholding
States, if inquired of why slavery does exist in
Mississippi, will as readily answer, the institution
is established and permitted by the Government of
Mississippi. Up to this point, and to this extent
all must understand the matter alike. Now, sup-
pie the citizens of the South should commence,


by petition, to importune Congress to establish
slavery throughout the States or New England.
Has New England a Senator here whose cqnsti-
tuents could be induced to believe Congress had
the power to grant such petitions? And has New
England a Senator here, or e t zen at home, who
would not feel himself insulted, and the rights and
sovereignty of his State wantonly outraged, by
incessant opportunities here of this character?
Would they defend the monstrous prerumffption of
such impor unities, and demand your respectful
deference to their claims, on the ground that such
was the right of petition? If such be the right,-let
us note its bearings in a case which might aptly
arise on the same article of the ConAtilutiion, from
which, it is said, this extent of the right of petition
is deduced.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an esta-
blishment of religion," &e. A petition is presented
by the Baptist association of North Carolina, pray-
ing Congress to establish their creed and laith as
the national religion, and abolish all others. A
Senator having such petition in charge, states its
import, and proposes its prssntment. Its reception
is objected to, because it seeks of Congress that
which the Constitution forbi's Cong.ess to grant or
to legislate upon. But the a4ve cares of this ex-
tended right of petition, rise an I answer: "We ad-
mit Congress has no power to grant the prayer of
tLe petitioner, or to make any law respecting it.
But the same article of the Cons ititution pre-
scribes also that Congress shall make no law *
abridging the * right of the people peaceably to
assemble, and to petition the Government for a
redress of grievances;' and we consider, first, the
petitioners have a right to regard the provisions
of the Constitution, interdicting Congress the
power to establishnational religion, as a 'grievance;'
Secondly, we are bound to listen to it, as a griev-
ance rightfully complained of, though we are
sworn to maintain it, as not a grievance; thirdly,
we are bound to proceed with the p'1l 1ui1,irv
former of legislation, as if to grant redres, th,.ilUh
we all k.iow and acknowledge our oaths to sup-
port the Constitution as no 'grievance' in this be-
half, compels us to deny redress. We therefore
cannot constitutionally reject this petition, till all
this solemn mockery is gone through with, in order
to preserve the right of petition. Tne right to
have these ceremonial preliminaries of legislation
dispensed to the peliioners is secured to them as
the vital principle of the right of petition.
The petitioners knew, before coming here, the
Constitution denied us the power to grant the
'redress' sought. It is presumed, therefore, they
Petitioned with no expectation of redress. And
we are bound to conclude, that knowing their
rights, and our power in this respect, they are
merely asserting the right of petition, by way of a
t healthful political exercise. Thus we tegard this
sacred right. A right in this case, secured by the
Constitution, to seek its destruction. A right
which binds us as priests to minister at the. sacri-
ficial alter, though pre-oblig, d to save the victim.
Finally, a right in this, and like cases without
remedy, but yet a profound and sacred right."
Now, I ask of those who reason thus here, if
they have heard the like logic at home from any
of their constituents? I apprehend not. If their
constituents fully understand this point in differ-
ence, if they will comprehend this essential nothing
so far as their object is concerned in the particular
case, and the right of petition is vindicated for
hem by their representatives here, will they im-
portune us longer to gain this certain negative, this
affirmative nothing? I state the que-tion, and I state
it for fie common sense of the people to decide,
and believe those that are honest will decide with
us. It is this:
A petition is presented here to abolish slavery in
theSouthern S'ates. Such petition, all parties, or a
great majority, in Congress, agree, would seek that
which Congress has no power to grant. It is no
question of expediency or propriety; but it is a
question of power-of jurisdiction-and the majori-
ty so believe and regard it. The question is then
made, "Shall the petition be received ?" Now if
Congress be already agreed that they have no consti-
tutional power to grant the petition, in what respect
ae the petitioners benefited in having it received ?
Suppose it be received and referred to a committee,
who report thereon, "that Congress have no power
over the subject-matter of the petition," and which
report is adopted by the Senate, can the most san-
guine petitioner imagine that he has asserted his
rights with any more success than if his petition
had been rejected without such reference and re-
port? Has he obtained any more of what he
'ought in this latter result than the substantial re-
jection of his petition? Those who advocate the
extended right of petition, say this mode of rejec-
tion is what the petitioners are entitled to. It is
what they mainly desire-what they deem all im-
portant to the preservation of their liberties. As
one, Mr. President. I d It not believe the Abolition-
ists who understand the question as thus presented.
are contending for any such phantom. Nor can
they believe lie essential right of petition consists
in having their petition peremp'orily denied by
Congress for want of jurisdiction after report by a
committee, rather than denied on presentment for
the same reason. I have debated a case, Mr. Pre-
sident,in which all concur that Congress has no pow-
er to grant the petitioner's prayer, because the ad-
vocates of this extended interpretation of the rgiht
of petition assume that such peculiarity of the
case makes no difference in their view of the ques-
tion.
But in m7 judgment the whole class of petitions
on this subjitct, whether to abolish slavery in this
District, the Territories, or the States, are equally
objectionable on constitutional grounds, though,
perhaps, for somewhat different reasons.
Property, wih the rights and incidents pertaining
to it, originates in the arbitrary institutions of so-
ciety. Land is generally a subject of property;
watec is seldom made so, and air never. Domestic
animals are piorerty; wild beasts an-I birds are not
so regarded. Government- are instituted for the
protection andl regulation of life, liberty, and pro-
perty. How far life or liberty shall be protected, is
a stipulation in the compact of Government, indi-
cated by consideration of the benefits and necessi-
ties of the social system. No society ever esta-
blished a Government protecting life or liberty in
their utmost possible extent. Nor was a Govern-
ment ever established extending equality of rights,
social or political, to all its members. The whole
system of the drmestic relations, of bond service by
indenture or other means; the political disfrau-
chusement of women, generally better, and oft-n
usore capacitated, than the master man, who con-
trol them, are abiding illustrations of this latter
position.
In the regulation of property, all Governments
resting in compact have some limits prescribed to
them. There is not, and probably there never was,
a Government beneath the sun, possessed of the
rn-ght, as a conceded and acknowledged preroga-
tive, to take or abolish the property of the citizen
or subject at pleasure, and without recompense.
Such a compact would be a political absurdity, in-
arimuch as it implies a principle destructive of a
primary end and object for which Government is
institu ted.
In our General Government, and in many of our
State Governments, of written and fundamental
constitutions of political power, such an idea is
expressly repudiated. I do not, of course, gainsay
the operation of the penal and taxing powers of
the Government, by which rights to property
aru s-ized up, lost, or forfeited, though thece also
are restrained. But I speak of the assertion,
by Government, of a distinct, independent power,
which, from considerations of general o: particular
benefit to the social system, it should as-
same to take from the citizen, without recom-
pense, that which his form of Government had


entitled him to possess as property; or to abolish, by
legislation,any species of property held by the citiz n,
and so to cancel all right and title o0 the proprie-
tor. I believe there is not a single Slate Govern-
ment in the Union inve ted with the power to pass
such a law. The people, in organizing their form
of Government, may undoubtedly invest their Le-
gislature with such a power. But I repeat my be-I
lief, there is no evidence extant that they ever have
yet committed so gross a folly. If, by mare legis-
lation, any of our Governments, from motives (f
municipal policy, can destroy and abolish the proper-
ty of the citizen, then can they also legislate away
the lives or liberties of the citizen. Life, liberty, and
property, as regarded in onr Government, consti-
tire the political trinity in the faith of the Ameri-
cam citizen. In their conservative destiny, they
are one and indivisible.
To regulate the use of properly, great and ample
powers are conferred upon the Legislature. For
such conservative purposes it is but little restricted.
A man's house may be demolished to save a city
from conflagration. His private property may be
destroyed to prevent it- giving succor to a hostile
army. He may be forbidden to wear concealed
weapons, or to permit Ahis ox or dog to roam at
large on the public highway. But suppose the
Legislature pasi a law that all the cattle and horses
owned by the citizens shall cease to be property,
the right of ownership therein abolished, and the
animals turned, out to (e enjoyme-mt of brute free-


d6m would such ajaw be valid I l answer, with-
out hesitation, it would not.
Now the rule in regard to the power of the Legis-
lature will be the same, whether it attempts to abo-
lish the citizen's right of property in lands, houses,
furniture, or slaves. There is no power in the Le-
gislature to abolish either. Were such a law en-
acted, the people, by common consent, mnght de-
fer to its provisions, and forbear to contest its va-
lidity. But I advance the opinion, with much con-
fidence, that if such a law be ever passel under
existing powers of Government, and its validity
shall be contested by the citizen, the Judiciary wi t
pronounce it void.
Then, how stands the case with this D's'ricit?
The Constitution has invested Congress with the
power of "exclusive legislation in alt cases whatsoever
over such District."
Now what may Congress do? Thy may "legis-
late in all cases," but can they do what they please
in all cases, without restraint? Can Congreus, for
the capricious reasons of social propriety, take away
by law the lands or goods of the citizen, or abolish
his right of property in either? Can Congress, from
considerations of promo ing public or retributive
justice, require by law that the owners of slaves
shall exchange their relative condition, and the ser-
vant, in turn, become the master? I conclude all
will admit Congrees possesses no such powers as
the questions contemplate.
It is readily perceived, then, that the power
given to Congress, to "legislate in all cases whatso-
ever over such District," will not authorize it to do all
things by its legislation, There are, perhaps, few
Abolitionists so perfectly frantic on this subject, as
to contend that the exclusive legislative powers of
Congress here would authorize the passage of a
law to sell the District out at auction. All will
perceive the genius and spirit of our Government
impose some limitation to its powers. We then
arrive at the important question, can Congres;
abolish slavery in this D strict, and deprive the ci-
tizen of his right andiproperly therein, without com-
pensation.
To solve this question, I consider the Constitu-
tion itself a sufficient and affirmative exposition.
Art:c!e five of the amendments prescribes that
"no per on shall be * deprived of life, li-
berty, or property, without due process of law; nor
shall private property be taken for public use,
without just compensation."
By the first part of this article life, liberty, and
property, are secured to the citizen on the same
terms; and, by the same .means appointed to de-
prive him of either, he may be deprived of all. The
second part is equally explicit and easy of compre-
hension; and both remarkable for the prompt mo-
rality they inculcate.
The Government, as representing the public in
its authority of eminent domain, may take private
property for public use, by rendering jest coimpensa-
tion. But the Congress of the United States, in all
its omnipotence of power, cannot, by the enact-
ment of a direct law for that purpose, and without
Spretence of its being for the public use, as autho-
rized by the Constitution, deprive the citizen of
Either State or District of his property, or right of
property, to the value of a shilling; and I will add,
also, it would be the highest prerogative of despo-
tism, were it otherwise.
As to the powers of the General Government to
regulate the use of property in this District, I readily
acknowledge it is possessed in the most ample ex-
tent. But its exercise would be an irresponsible
and odious tyranny, if instigated and prescribe I by
foreign influence, and enforc-d by mere power on
the people of the District, again-t their will.
With these views, I mainain that the want of
jurisdiction, the absence of adequate power to grant
a petition to abolish slavery in this D*strict, exhib ts
our rights and duties to be'no more or less than per-
tains to us on petitions to abolish slavery in the
States.
I have no object or intention to derogate from
the right of petition, and would not, here or else-
where, abridge that right in a single hair's breadth,
in its legiimate exercise. It furnishes a conve-
nient means to the minority, essentially useful and
proper, by which to urge their complaints, and ask
redress of such grievances as the measures of the
majority may inflict upon them. But I contend
the right of petition can never confer upon us any
dominion whatever over subjects not delegated in
the Constitution. It cannot require of us, whose
powers and duties are circumscribed and appointed
by the Constitution, that we shill be invoked, or
rather goaded to action, and required to attempt,
and partially prcgrese, to do that which we are for-
bidden to doi, in order to vindicate an exaggerated
extension of a right, perverted into wrong, insult,
and aggression.
It is not to be questioned but sthe right of petition
is convenient in its appropriate functions, and va-
luable in its degree; and, in my apprehension, it is
no depreciation of that right to say, that so far as
indicated in the Copstitntion of the United States, it
does not challenge the extravagant eulogies be.
stowed upon it here. The right, as there incorpo-
rarel, breathes a distrust which might not be im-
properly entertained against a despotism, but cer-
tainly does not evince the highest pretensions of a
free people, who claim the right to make and un-
make their formn of government at pleasure.
Few, I presume, would distinguish it as the most
favorite feature in the Constitution of a free, wise,
and just Government of the people's choice. It
might be regarded as a trophy of some pride andi
boast where an oppressed people had wrested it
from the stronegrasp of the tyrant. It was well spo
k mn by the htrnorable Senator from South Caro ins,
[Mr.CaLrroUN,] that the ballot box,which, in our De-
mocratic system of Government, commands the
will of; the majority to be executed in all our le-
gislation, (within the rules prescribed by the or-
ganic law,) is a main substitute for the right of pe-
tition in arbitrary Governments; and I will add,
of much higher and prouder pretensions. In our
system the right of petition is the most limited of
popular and political rights.
The specification of such a right, in our power
of Government, implies in one view an apprehen
siGn of wrong to the citizen, superinducing ane-
cessity to sue for as a favor, that which the people
in this Government may demand as a rinh'. In
the other aspect it implies the still humbler privi-
lege'of soliciting that which it may be generous to
bestow, and yet not unjust to ', idhi-l.
It our Government was that ,i the few, which
oppressed the many, and when the people assem-
bled to petition for redre-s of grievances, tIre
minions of power, backed by the military, read the
riot act, or the tyrant's proclamation, and then
dispersed the multitude, under such circumstances
it might be highly prized as a great and gracious
privilege to approach the throne of a mister
through the obsequious medium of petition. But I
trust it shall prove a vain effort of the Abolitionists
to magnify the right of petition here, into riuch con-
secrated importance as to profit them much in aid
of their seditious cause. They cannot dignify this
right by claiming for it such profound considera-
tion, but a. the correspondent expense of debasing
the American people to a more servile condition
than every principle of their Government entitles
them to occupy. To hold it up here as a test of
the people's freedom, the conservative principle of
their liberties, the deep foundation on which their
Government rests, andthat all is at stake in the rejec-
tion of their petitions, is truly working up an ocean
tempest
* 'to drown a fly."
The condition of the American people is happily
more elevated, their means of political preserva-
tion more enlarg-d, than this portentous clamor
would report them. It is a false alarm, and will
not take, that the liberties of the people are held by
so frail a tenure as the right of petition.
But I am not tenacious that such petitions as


now presented should be refused admission, rather
than nailed to your table, so soon as received upon
it. As a question of right, I would certainly prefer
that such petitions should not be received into this
chamber at all. I would prefer it, also, from a
sense of due and becoming respect to those States
whose sovereignties and res-rved rights these peti-
tions most wrongfully an I rudely a.sail.
With respect to the propriety and policy of re-
ferring these petitions, and reporting on their me-
rits, with the view of conciliating the petitioners, I
shall say but little more than io declare my uncom-
promising aversion to such a course. Not that I
should apprehend, from the present organization of
the Senate, a report tending, in any material degree,
to excite apprehensions, or endanger our rights in
the South. I am well assured no such report would
at this time be made. But it is sufficient for me to
repeat, that as I verily believe Congress has no
rightful jurisdiction of the subject, I should regard
any report that could be made as a triumph yielded
to the officious importunities of the petitioners, and
hence a criminal usurpation of power against the
sovereignty of the Stales interested. Nor do I be-
lieve that any report which would be made here,
would allay that obtrusive spirit of the petitioners.
It is the Moloch spirit of religious and political fa-
naticism; and when has sober reason and simple
justice ever met such adversaries with succeals?
To the honest and misguided of o'ir Northern
brethren who may have conceived thgr right of


petition at hazard in this contest, we will say to
them, in hope and confidence, that their full and
,impartial investigation of this question must result
in our justification. 'Ihe question of jurisJiction,
in evry tribunal on earth, is a previous question,
rightfully made at the threshold; and no court, that
maintains a decent respect for its own character
and the rights of suitors, will betray itself by a
judgment on the merits of the controversy, when
not pos-ezsed of competent juri-diction over the
subject and the paries. Now the light of legal
redress for injuries to person and property, and the
pledge of power that the courts shall be kept open
for the admnnistraticn of such redress to all, is a
familiar and emphatic pledge in most of the Con-
stitutions of the State Governments. Suppose the
citizen mistakes his forum, and sieks redress in
one court, that can only be awarded to him in ano-
ther: the court object to adjulge the merits of his
case, because impotent to grant redress. But the
suitor persists that his right of suit is guarantied to
him by the Consitu:ion, and that this right is aibi-
trarily nullified and rendered valueless, unless he
can obtain a hearing and ju Igment on the merits of
his cause. The answer which the court must ne-
cessarily give to such importunity is: "Your r ght
of suit, as abstract from our duties to adjudge, we
do not contest; but such right on your part does
not confer on ns a jurisdiction to decide your cae.
We take no cognizance of the matter, m t from
disrespect to the suitor, but for want 'it proper au-
thority to retain and adjudge the su't. Go hence,
to that tribunal which has the power to grant what
you petition for."
So wosld reason,.necessity, and the philosophy
of its principles, dispose of such a question.
Those who seek only in sincerity to vindicate
the right of petition in this controversy, I permit
myself to indulge ihe belief, will concur in these
common tense views of the subject. But to those
who have determined to busy them-elves with that
which concerns them not, and who discard the
dictates of common sense, the evidence of truth,
and the lights of reason, to grasp at conclusions in a
sheer spirit of wilfulness; those who reject facts
to theorize in abstractions, who substitute the
bitot's morality for municipal law, who trample,
without show of decency or remorse, upon all the
plighted faiih and sacred compacts of our Union,
and shout in justification thehypocritieal pretext
of the right of petition, to such we know our
rights and reasoning are urged alike in vain. No
conciliation can be hoped for with them, but on
terms of concession that can never be submitted
to, till that despotic usupation which has un-
furled is banner here in these petitions, shall ex-
ttt them at Philippi.

TWENTY-SIXTH CONGRESS
FIRST SESSION.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
TtURSDAY, February 2.1, 1840.
Aftir t'e reading of the journal,
Mr. FILLMORE raised a question as to the cor-
reciness of the journal, in that part which related to
the case fior which he was arrested in h s remarks
onye..t-irday; and
Aft: a few remarks from Me srs. PETRIKIN,
FILLMORE, and HOLLEMAN, as to the matter
of factat issue,
Mr. FILLMORE moved to amend the journal
by substituting for the record, as a reason why he
was called to order, in substance, the following:
"That while he was reading a resolution adopted
by the Committee of Elections, in relation to the
New Jersfy contest, the reading was objected to,
and he was called to order;" and
After some further dliocusion between Messrs.
PETRIKIN, HAND, FILLMORE, and ADAMS,
the amendment was agreed to.
The SPEAKER announced that the first busi-
ness il order was the resolution reported from the
Comruitiee of Elections by Mr. CAMtPBELL, chair-
man, -sking the House to geant that committee the
privilege to have all printing done which is deemed
necessary to facilitate the investigation of the New
Jersey disputed election.
Tire question pending when the resolution was
last under consideration, was the motion of Mr.
CAVE J tNsoN to amend the proposition with the
following, as a substitute:
Resolved, Than' ll the procreftinq, and papers before the
Cormrilttee of EI-... ,. .. ir.,. *r- the New Jersey election,
be reported to the liouse by the committee, with a statement
of the names of the individuals who received a majorityof all

pending before their, printed by the public Printer ofCongress.
The que-tion immediately before the Ilouse was
the appeal of the gentleman from Massachusett%,
[Mr. ADAMS,] from the decision of the SFEAKER,
that it was not in order for the gentleman from
New York [Mr. FILLMORE] to read to the House
the resolution or proceedings of the Committee of
E'ections, not then in possession of the House, and
which it was proposed to print.
Mr. RUSSELL here rose and said it was known
that the committees had not been aftlorded ar oppor-
tunity to report this session; and asked the general
consent of there Houe to move the following resolu-
tion ;
Resolved, 'That the several committees of the House which
have not b-en regularly called for reports of the present session
of Congress, be called to-morrow, immediately after the reading
,,i. i .,, ,I ..hi-. .-1.-.i i t.-.. .i .rcr,-eto all other business
Fi r. [ 1 1 ..... rii..'- ,il ii .' been called.
Mr. PROFFIT objected.
Mr. RUSSELL moved to suspend the rules to
enable him to offer the resolution.
The SPEAKER said the motion could not be
admitted except by general consent, the gentleman
from New York [Mr. FILLMORE] being entitled to
the floor on another subject.
The appeal was debate.] at great length by
Mr. ADAMS, who had taken the appeal, Ie
said, from absolute necessity, and contended that
the gentleman from New York had the tight to
read the papers; and, furthermore, any member ol
the House had the right to (tall for the reading of
all the papers which it was proposed to print; and
read the rule in support of this position. He sai,
if the decision of the CrAtiR should be sus a'ned
the freedom of specch would be denied that gentle-
man, and it would be difficult for him to resign a
reason why it would be impossible for that com-
mittee to report. He thought he was entitled to
the right to read; and legs oppose I to vote to give
him permission to do that which he was entitled to
do under the rule. Mr. A. believed, i5 the princi-
ples involved in the decision should obtain, tlhy
rights of a member, in this particular, would en-
tirely depend hereafler upon the will of a majo-
rity. His experience on that l mor taught him that
privileges would be granted to a member with re-
regard to whether he belonged to a majority or a
minority party. The tulcs were a most detestable
means in the hands of a majority. Every ralt
was, and could be, made the instrument in the
hands pf an arbitrary majority to reattict the rights
of members, and he hoped there would be such a
revolution, in this respect, as would restore the
rules to their legitimate purposes. It was for the
reason above that he wish-d to settle the pr'n-
ciple that any member had the right to read, in
illustration of, or to enforce his argument, any mat-
ter which he thought pertinent, and not leave it
subject to the arbitrary will of a majority to say
what his rights were. His matnlained that the e'-
ter of the rules gives thle right to call for the read-
ir.g of any paper to elucidate an argument. The
rights of members were already sufficiently pinched
by means of ,he previous question, motions to lay on
the table, and punctilious and captious questions
of order.


Mr. PETRIKIN maintained that a commit'#g
was a distinct body of individuals, and that it was
entirely out of order to read papers, and to arraign
its proceedings, tefure the House, whilst they were
exclusively under the control of the committee. 'I he
privileges Gf the committee could not be violated
by a single member of it making uie of matter
which was alone under its control. He contended
the latter clause of the original propotion to print
was itself out of order, and tie proposition to read
was doubly so.
Mr. POPE agreed with ths gentleman from
Pennsylvania, [Mr. PEVRimt ,] that they could
not discuss any papers and proceedings of a com-
mittee until they were reported to the House, or
the committee was discharged. The proposition
wan what he considered an indirect way to dis-
charge it; and he thought it would be more manly
to move a formal order for a discharge. It was
an attempt to decide the New Jersey contest with-
out that thorough investigation which was contem-
plated wh-n-the matter was referred to the com-
mittee. The committee have sent for persons and
papers to carry out the views of the House; and it
would be improper to arrest the committee in the
execution of its order. For one, he was not wil-
ling to vote blindfolded. If the question to report
and to print could be entertained, the members
should have the privilege of knowing what it was
that was proposed to be printed. He suggested to
the gentleman front Tennessee, [Mr. JoHNsON,] that
it would be better to discharge the committee than
to press the question in its present form. If the
appeal was withdrawn, he would raile the ques-


lion whether it was c6peteni tp entemtain the quarter of our 6ontiry. the necessity der.,lwes ,iran ineo nofrt-

the possession of every civilized Goernitment in the
world? Surely the instructions to obtain this infor-
mation cou'd be prepared and forwarded before
June. The information he wished to obtain was
highly important, and he hoped the Hou-e would
adopt the amendment.
Mr. PEFRIKIN thought the adoption of the
amendment would be carrying legislation too far.
It would, in his opinion, be interfering with the le-
gislation of the Stales. Every State Government
had this information, and that was all that was ne-
cessary. The subject, said he, does not belong to
us, and I hope the House will not adopt it,
Mr. GARLAND of Louisiana thought the
amendment unnecessary, inasmuch as ample power
was given to the President, by the bill of the last
session, to obtain all the statistical information that
was required. As allusion had been made to the
defects of the bill of the last session, he thought it
due to himself, by whom it was reportedly, to ex-
plain how tiey originated. The bil, as it passed
the House, was unobjectionable, but amendments
had been made to it in the Senate which created all
the difficulties that had been spoken of. It passed.
the House on the third day preceding the adjourn--
ment, snd was made as per feet as the limited time
al!owedl would permit;buton bin 'mr,.ni to the Seca'e,
some ot the gentlemen there, who were so serupu-
Ions about State rights, discovered that the mar-
shals could not ctnmence making the census till the
entire expiration of the len years after the last.
The alteration in the bill was then made, and the
effect of it was to create all the difficulties wh'ch
had since arisen.
The question was then taken on Mr. HUaBARD'S
amendment, and it was rejected without a division.
Mr. PETRIKIN then moved to amend the bill
by reducing the salary of the principal clerk em-
ployed on the business of the census, in the State
Department, from $-000 per annum to $1200.
Mr. ADAMS opposed the amendment on the
ground that the compensation of this officer was
fixed by the Secretary of State, with a full know.
ledge of the duties to be performed, and the respon-
sibilities incurred.
Mr. P.TRIKIN said he bad no objection to pay-
ing men a fair compensation for the services they
performed; but he had no idea of .ahcti-.r.iig such
inequalities as this bill proposed. Here thit 4super-
intendent was to receive $2000, while the recording
clerk and packer, etp'oved on the same business,
were to receive, the roe but $800 and the other but
$6')0. He wanted the men who did the work to
get compensations tearing a more just proportion
to that of the gentleman who was to superintend
their labors than the bill allowed, and for this pur-
pose he would move to increase them from $800
and $600 to $1000 and $800.
Mr. SERGEANT referred his colleague to t-e
report of the Secretary of State, in which that offi-
cer spoke of the importance of having a gentleman
qualified to superintend this bu-iness, and that he
had employed such a one at a salary of $2000 per
annum. The superintendent would not, as his
colleague supposed, be idle; he would have other
and arduous duties to perform besides overlooking
the labors of his subordinates. He was to take
charge of all the details of the business, under the
direction of the Department, until it was com-
pleted.
Mr. PETRIKIN made some add-tional observa-
tions in support of his amendment. He thought a
salary of $1200 ample for the superintendent. He
knew many worthy and well qualified individuals,
who would be glad to take the employment at
that compensation. As to the responsibility and
arduous duties the superintendent, it was all
imaginary. He did not believe that his duties
would require a much greater deg ee of talent, or
involve heavier responsibilities, than those of the
recording clerk; at all events, not to such an extent
as to authorize so ereat a disproportion in the sa-
laries as $2,000 and $800. His colleague spoke of
the Department having employed a gentleman
competent to discharge these important dulies.
Now what constituted a ynr.ileniani Was it a
ruffled shirt, fine coat, and n ite hant? For h4
part hlie judged of men by their qualifications andL
theirmoral wonth, and not by the clothes they wo-e.
Mr. WICK said if the gentleman frm Pennsyl-
vania would agree to fix the salary of this officer
at $1 ,500, he would gp for it; and Mr. W. moved
accordin-ly to insert $1,500 instead of $,00%, as
in the bill.
The question was then taken on Mr. Wicit's
motion, (it being the larg-st sum,) and it was
carried in the affirmative.
Mr. PETRIKIN then moved to increase the
salary of the recording clerk to $1,000, and the
packer to $900; which motion was rejected,
Mr. DAWSON next moved to amend the bill
by adding 331 per cent. to the compensation of the
assisant marshals, for the additional labor im-
posed on them by the bill, of procuring the statisti-
cal information it required. The duties required
of these asishanls were (Mr. p. said) very impor-
tant, and required men of activity and intelligence.
In addition to taking the mere enumr ration of the
inhalritsnts of their dis rict, they had to obtain a
great deal of valuable important information; and
to show the inadequacy of the cpmpensa',ion al-
lowed them, he would call the at mention of the House
to one fact. An assistant mayrshal?'or taking thecensus
of five thousand inhabitants, and collecting the
various items of statistical information required,
was to receive but $100. The time it would take
him to disclhaige these duties would exceed six
months, provide d he did it fairly and honestly for
the benefit of the country. It was out of the
question to suppose that thip marshals corill obtain
the services of competent assis'an's for thisi tall
sum. Mr. D. said he had received a number of
letters calling his attention to this subject, and
stating that the business could not be performed
without a more adequate compensation.
Mr. SMITH of Maine thought the gentleman
from Gerrgia was mju.talfen. There was a provi-
sion in the law of last session allowing ,y &0 fpF
every fifty persons whsre the district was sparsely
settled, if, in the opinion of the district judge, such
additional compensation was necessary.
Mr. DAWSON said that this provIsion would
not apply in nory parts of his State, where the .
marshal could not get the services perf rmed for
the compensation ai ,wei. The labor was fqgr
greater ihan that required in taking the last cen-
sus, and greater intelligence in the assistants was
a so necssriry. If Congress did not allow such a
compensahion as wou'd secure the services of com-
petent peisons, the statistics of the States would be
gutessly misrepresented, and confusion and disorder
would be introduce I in consequence of one after.,

came to know the extent of ilte duties imposed o01
Them. 0te gentlerman had inf. rmed hitg that hl
had received a letter'from the marshal of his State,
(Vermont,) saying that it would be impo.-itilhi for
him to procure the #rrvices of assistants for the
c'impen.lii. rr a iw, -',.d jy he bill.
Mr..'EI'.tFANT observed that the object of
this bill was not to review the bill of the last
seaion, but only to supp'y some omissions in it.
That bi!l ha4 been so har carried into effect as to
employ s me of the assistants. When the bill of
last session was passed, it did not enter into the
head o1 any man that the compensation provided
for the assistants was too small. Mr. S. thought
the cdispensatiop eutirieten, and hoped the amend-
ment would not prenai'l. .
After some additional remarks from Mr. DAw-


SON,
Mr. CARTER of ,Tennessee observed that-from
his knowledge of the numerous applications for
employment under this law, he was s tisfied that
an abundance qf eomptfpnt persons could bg en -
ployed for the compensation it a ,'ivred. -Ie lknew,
further, that tl e offer of these employment had been
made an engine in his State for political purposes;
and tha hopres of employment had been held out napt
only to one individual, bit to many other-, to in-
du e them to support the party of the Admi4nistra-
tion. The marshal, in his part of the coon ry, not
only endeavotel to effect important results in the
last elections, by ho'dng out inducements to pro-
minent and influential individuals, but to attain
thie objci he had in view, kept back the appoint-
ments till after the election was over. He fur-
ther understrood that it was the custom with this
marshal to inquire as to the political opponents of
those who applied to him for employmeil., end io
in variably refuse them if they happened to he Whig@

heard of one cise in which a Whig, who was pro-
mised an appointment if he would turn Demnocal,
changed his po!jics, and Ixbecame a supporter of

Mr. SMI rH of Vermont observed, that as 4llu,
sion had been made to informatiqi obtained from
him by the gentleman from Ge, rg a, he would take
this occasion to start that he had received a letter
form the mar-hal of Vermont, itating tibat comr
peienit assistants could not be engaged for the
compensation allowed by the act of Ipt session.

IMPORTANT TO THOSE AFPLICTEr
WITH DISEASES OF THE LUNGS ANE
WINDPIPE.-REV. I. COVERTS BALM OF
LIFE: A new and valcable r m.i v for the cure of
COUGHS,COLDS, CONSUil ,Tl ON, ASTH MA
BRONCHITIS, CROUP, WHOOPING COUGH
and all diseases of the LUNGS and WINDPIPE
extensively used and recommended by lhn Medical
Faculty, to whom the Recipe has been freely
made known.
HOADLEY, PHELPS & Co. wholesale Drug.
gists, 142 Water street, N. Y. General Agents
I. COVERT & Co. Proprietors, Auburn, N. Y.
The proprietor of this medicine, having witness
ed, with much pain, the great and increasing de-
strnetion of tie lile and health of so many of hit
fellow beings by Consumption, Bronchitis, and the
S various and numerous other diseases of the Lungi
and Windpipe, was induced to direct his attention
and inquiries to the discovery of a more efficacious
remedy than has heretofore been presented to thi
public.
With much care, consultation, and study, he hat
prepared a medicine, which he now presents to at
1'1 .I ,-i and discerning public, with the utmos
o3liadence in its virtues and success in the cure o
te diseases for which it is recommended-an(
which he is willing to submit to the most scruti
utizing test of the Medical Faculty, and to rest itt
reputation upon their decision.
It contains no ingredients that can impair thi
constitution under any circumstances. -It will bi
found greatly serviceable in Colds, Coughs, and al
diseases of the Lungs and Bionchia, such as
Pithisic, Asthma, Whooping Cough, Croup
Acute and Chronic inflammationsof the Lungs ate
Windpipe.
By the DYSPEPTIC it has been used with de
cided advantage, and is serviceable to persons Ia
boring under debility of any kind,if used according
to the directions. To tha CONSUMPTIVE, it hat
invariably afforded almost immediate relief, and in
several instances has wrought a permanent cure
It is not, however, expected to effect a cure upor
such as are in the last stages of the disease; bu
even to such, it will be found to give much relief
and greatly prolong that remnant of life which hat
become so nearly extinguished by the dread de
stroyer.
The proprietor is now receiving, almost daily
testimonials of the highest respectability from phy.
sicians, erlreymen, and others, who have become
acquainte.I with its nature and effect, among
S which are the following:
"I have examined a recipefor a compound called
the Balm of Life, in the hands of Rev. Isaac Co.
vert, and have to state that I consider it a safe and
useful combination of medicines, calculated to bx
very beneficial iu chronic diseases of the lunes and
air passages. AVERY J. SKILTON,
Troy, June 27, 1839. Physician and Surgeon,
I fully concur in the above recommendation.
T. S. BaaRBE-r,

This certifies that having examined the.Rev. I.
Covert's Balm of Life in all its component parts,
we do believe it to be one of the best compounds
for coughs, consumption, chronic inflammations,
etc. of which we have any knowledge, and do
most cordially recommend its use to all afflicted
with the above named diseases.

The nature of the composition of the R ;v. I.
Covert's Balm of Life, having been fully explained
to the following medical gentlemen, they have con-
sented that they may be referred to as authority for
its utility as an expectorant in those chronic cases
of pulmonary disease, in which that class of reme-
dies is indicated.

L VI STOVE-For producing an equal distribu
Slion of heat in Room., Halls,Academies, Churches,
f Sleanb.ati, Railroad Cars, &c. Also, for warm-
1c e ,veral apartments by one stove.-Combining
SalUlihe av.ntatsof fithe Stove and Furnace.
S A lCi of the bhove invaluable Stoves has been
I received, and for sale at Francis Naylor's Tin
- and Sheet Iron Factory, Pennsylvania avenue,
.outh side, near Third street, west. Comfort,
- economy, and neatness, combined; all who have
an eye to those three essentials, would do well to
Palt and examine before purchasing other Stoves.
ADVANTAGES.
I. Durability.-The case can never burn out.
is The interior Stove is rendered stronger and more
e durable by the patent flange conductors.
6 2. Comfort.-It distributes a mild, summer-like
D temperature equally in every part, so that it is not
s uncomfortable near the Stove, from the heat, nor
a uncomfortable at a distance, from the cold.
3. Eeonomy.-A considerable amount of fuel is
s saved by securing the radiated heat usually lost.
a 4. Security.-No injury is done to furniture or
Goods by radiation.
f 5. Convenience.-Several apartments may be
d heated agreeably by one Stove. Though intended
- for the Parlor and Hall, it may, if preferred, be
s used to heat them from below, in the manner of a
furnace.
e 6. Cleanness.-No dust from the coal is thrown
e out, nor does the exterior of the Stove lose its color
1 rom heat.
s 7. Ease of management.-The management is
, simple and similar to that of a common Stove.
d 8. Ventilation.-I has an arrangement tor ad-
mitting the air to be heated, in any way desired.
TESTIMONIALS.
- From J. B. Burleigh, esi. No. 29, Fayette street,
g Baltimore.
s "Mr. Miller put up his Patent Air-heating Stove
a in my office about two months ago. It keeps up a
lively circulation of heated air, and has decided
n advantages over any that I have ever seen in use
t in regard to health, comfort, and economy.-March
, 1839.
s From Rev. E. Hutchinson, Principal of Academy,
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
e that I have seen. It is so constructed that it may
g be made to heat several rooms with very httle extra
expense. I cordially recommend it to the public."
I From Mr. D. Barnum, Proprietor of the City Hotel,
Baltimore.
S "I put up two of Mr. Miller's Air-heating
e Stoves in my City Hotel, and have found them
A admirably adapted both to large and small rooms,
in, preserving an equallity of temperature, and in my
Opinion more conducive to health and comfort than
the ordinary Stoves. I think them also much more
economical in respect to saving of fuel."
From .Messrs. McLauglin and Stannard.
"We have used Mr. Miller's Air-heating S'oves,
and our opinion coincides with that expressed
Sabox 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 ordinary Stoves for one."
Baltimore Transcript and Corn. Gazette.
We attended the examination of an Air-heat-
ing Stove placed in the Reading room of Mr. Bar-
gum's City Hotel. It has a decided superiority
over every other Stove which we have seen.
[February, 1839.-Balt. Republican.
From Rev. A. C. Thomas, Philadelphia.
"I have had opportunities of witnessing the ope-
ratien 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
worship, and 2d, the fuel consumed is considerably
less than was required to produce an equal degree
of heat, by the Stove removed 4o make room for
Mr. Miller's improvement.-March, 1839.
Extract from a letter of Rev. S. WI. Fuller, Phila-
delphia.
"DEAR SaIR: The model of Air-Heating Stove,
submitted to my examination last winter, led me
to believe that in several essential provisions it
was decidedly superior to any Stove I had ever
seen, and I am happy to add, that my belief in its
superior properties was soon after fully confirmed
by seeing one of the Stoves in operation. Your ef-
forts and success in providing a Stove so well cal-
culated to promote the comfort of your fellow-citi-
zeus, deserve, and I doubt not will receive the pa-
tronage of a discerning public."--.May, 1839.
From the Proprietors of the Globe.
We are now using Miller's Stoves in our office,
and consider them superior to any we have ever
seen.

PILLS hars the enviable distinction of a univer-
sal approbation. They are perhaps the only medi-
cine pubhlcly advertised that has the full and
unreserved testimony t"f medical men in its favor.
if not the only one which gives full satisfaction to
its pupebhasers. DR. WV, IEVANS has the satis-
faction of lknowing that hi?
CAMOMILE OR TONIC PILLS
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 those
discuses in which they weell know them to be effi-
cacious. lie knows this to be generally the case
in Nr-w York, Philadelphia, Albany, BIston, and
oilier large cities, in whtch they have an extensive
sale. That they should thes conquer professional
prejudice and interested opposition, and secure
the agency of the most eminent and best informed
physicians in the country to render them useful to
all classes, can only be fairly ,scribed to their
undeniable and pre-eminent virtue,,.

Letter from the Hon. Abraham M'Clellan, Sullivan
county, East Tennessee, Member of Congress.
WVa-h.rgitn.ri, July 1d, 1838.
Sir-Since I have been in this city, I have used
some of your Dyspeptic medicine with infinite bene-
fit and satisfaction, and believe it to be a most
valui'-.l-k remedy. One of my constituents, Dr. A.
Cardei, of aampbell county, Tennessee, wrote me
to send him some, which i did, and he has em-
ployed it very successfully in hi practice, and says
it is invaluable. Mr. Johnson, your agent at this
place, thinks you would probably like an agent in
rTn.-r. ide. If so, I would recommend Dr. A
Carden as a propgr person to officiate for the sale
of your celebrated medicine. hold you commis-
sion him, lie is willing to act for you. You can
send the medicine by water to the care of Robert
King & 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 of
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 for you, as I live near there.
Yours respecfully,
ABRAHAM M'CLELLAN, of Tennessee.
To Dr. Win. Evans, 100 Chatham st. N. York.
The following certificate was handed to us by
Mr, Van fchaiok, of Albany, a highly respectable


member of the community, and whose nverity
cannot be doubted:
Mr. Septemius YE--dall, of the town of Wes-
terloo, county u Albany, was for about 27 years
troubled with a nervous and bilious affection,
which for 7 years rendered him unable to attend to
his business, and durhr. tihe last 3 years of his illR
press was confined to the house, His symptoms
were dizziness,% pains in the bead and side/,palpita-
tion of the heart, want of appetite, After
expending during his confinement, nearly three
hundred dollars without obtaining any permanent
relief, he by accident noticed an advertisement of
Dr. Win. Evans's Camomile and Aperient Pills,
and was c.,n.-cquenily induced to make atrial of
ihem. After using them about a fortnight, he was
able to walk .ut; in fcur months he could attend to
iuvinese, and considered his disease enutirety re-
moved. The above information was given to the
'ubseriber by Mr. Kendall himself; there can
therefore, be no deception.

TO PARENTS.
It is stated by eminent medical writers that at
east one-third of the Children in the United States
die from teething, and diseases caused thereby.-
Read the following:
A REAL BLE3ING TO MOTHERS.
Dr W. Evens's, celebrated Soothing Syrup, fir
Children cmit l,, their teeth.
This infallible remedy has preserved hundreds
of children when thought past recovery, from con-
vulsions. As soon as the syrup is rubbed on the
gums, the child will recover. This preparation is
so innocent, so efficacious, and so pleasant, that
no child will refuse to let its gums be rubbed with
it. When infants are at the ace of four months,
though there is no appearance of teeth, one bottle
of Syrup should be used on the gums to open the
pores. Parents never should he without theSyrup
in the nursery where there are young children;
for if a child wakes in the night with a pain in the
gumas, the syrup immediately gives ease by open-
ing the pores and healing the gums, thereby pre-
venting Convulsions, Fevers, &e.
The passage of the teeth through the gums
produces troublesome and dangerous symptoms.
It is known by mothers that there is great
irritation in the mouth and gums during tkis
process. The gums swell, the secretion and saliva
is increased, the child is seized with frequent and
sudden fits of crying, watching, starting in the
sleep, and spasms of peculiar parts; the child
shrieks with extreme violence, and thrusts its fin-
gets into its mouth. If these precursory symptoms
are not speedily alleviated, spasmodic convulsions
universally supervene, and soon cause the dissolu-
tion of the infant. Mothers who have their little
babes afflicted with .these distressing symptoms
should apply Dr. William Evans's celebrated
Soothing Syrup, which has preserved hundreds of
infants when thought past recovery, from being
suddenly attacked with that fatal malady, convul-
sions.
To the agent of Dr. Evans's Soothing Syrup: Sir:
The great benefit afforded to my suffering infant
by your Soothing Syrup, in a case of protracted
and painful dentition, must convince every feeling
parent how essential an early application of such
an invaluable medicine is to relieve infant misery
and torture. My infant, while teething, expe-
rienced such acute sufferings, that it was attacked
with convulsions, and my wife and family supposed
that death wo-sld soonl release the babe from an-
guish, till we procured a bottle of your Syrup;
which, as soim as applied to the gums, a wonderful
change was produced, and after a few applications,
the child displayed obvious relief; and by continu-
ing in its use, I am glad to inform you the child has
complete./ recovered, and no recurrence of that
awful compla nt has since occurred. The teeth are
emanating daily, and the child enjoys perfee
health. I give you my cheerful permission to
make this acknowledgment public, and will gladly
give any information on this circumstance.
WM. JOHNSON.
A gentleman who has made trial of Dr. Evans's
Soothing Syrup, in his family, (in case of a teeth-
ing child,) wishes us to state that he found it en-
tirely effectual in relieving pain in the gums, and
preventing theconsequences which sometimes lftL
low. We cheerfully comply with his request.
[,New York Sun.
We believe it is generally acknowledged by
those who have tried it, that the Soothing Syrup
for Children Cutting Teeth, advertised in another
column, is a highly useful article for the purposes
for which it is intended. Highly respectable per-
sons, at any rate, who have made use of it, do nopt
hesitate to give its virtues the sanction of their
names.-Buston Traveller.
