Dyspepsia yields without a struggle to its mild
yet powerful action on the stomach. In Catarrh,
or cough, Rheumatism, Fistula, Gonorrhea, and
Syphilis, it never, fails to cure, as we have fully
proved. It is also efficacious in Paralysis, Dropsy,
Asthma, Complaints of the Breast, Piles, Worms,
Lumbago, Stricture, Diarthoea, and Flux; usually
effecting a cure-always giving relief.
This tincture tends directly to excite a healthy
action in the stomach, liver, lungs, spine and kid-
neys-to purify the blood and other fluids, by ex-
pelling every particle of morbid matter from the
system, and therefore never fails (with its accom-
paniments) to prove a valuable remedy for dis-
eases for which calomel has been invariably used.

R I intend to op-n an evenining school for the
tuttion of the French language, in the school room
over the Washington Library, on 11th street. As
to qualifications to teach that language, I refer ap-
plicants to the subjoined certificates, procured in
Alexandria, where I taught for many years.
Those wishing to become pupils, will please
leave their names with me or my son, at our Eng
lish and Classical school, kept in Ihe room above
WM. LANPHIER having requested me to state
what I know in regard to his qualifications as a
teacher of the French Language, it gives me plea-
sure to say, that he gave instruction in that lan-
guage in th.s place, some years ago, to the satisfac-
tion of those who took lessons from him; and that,
so far as I am capable of judging, he understands
and speaks the language well.

DAILY STATE CAPITOL GAZETTE.-
The editors of the Slate Capitol Gazette, at
tie urgent solicitation of numerous Democratic
friends in almost every county of the Common-
wealth, have come to the conclusion to publish,
during the sittings of the approaching session of
the Legislature, the
STATE CAPITOL GAZETTE, DAILY.
The DAILY GAZETTE will be printed on a royal
sheet of fine paper, which will be sufficiently large
to contain full reports of proceedings of both
branches of the Legislature. In carrying out our
intention of publishing a daily paper at the seat of
Government, we will of course subject ourselves to
heavy expenditures, and will consequently expect
the Democracy of Pennsylvania to rally around us,
and sustain us in our undertaking. To enable us
to give full reports of the proceedings of the Le-
gislature, we have made arrangements for placing
in each House a competent stenographer, the abili-
ty and professional experience of one of whom, at
least, is universally admitted both here and else-
where. In addition to this, we have engaged, at a
considerable expense, the valuable services of our
late Washington Correspondent, whose style of
writing, the forcible, energetic, and fearless man-
ner in which he laid bare the doings of Federalism,
and the faithful predictions which he gave, during
the extraordinary session of Congress, are familiar
to our numerous reader, many of whom have
cheerfully admitted to us, in person, that "Cleon"
is one of the Best political writers of the day, and
have urged us again to procure his aid as our cor-
respondent at ihe seat of the General Governmrnt.
As regards the future course of the Gazette, we
deem it unnecessary to say more than that it will
always be found, as teretofore, a warm supporter
of the great principles ot Democracy, and battling
faithfully for the welfare, promotion, and happiness
of the people at large. The banking system, as it
is at pre-ent conducted, believing, as we do, that it
is calculated to spread distress, misery, and ruin in
every community where its polluting influence is
felt, shall continue to meett from the Gazette th-
same determined opposition that it always has mel,
until the hired coalitions and combinations (f
bankers, speculators, and s'ockjobbers, shall be
made tofeel that the will of the people is supreme
Having been the ardent and zealous supporters ot
the re-election of our prcse.t worthy Executive,
DAVID R. PORTER, it shall be our pride and plea-
sure to give to his Administration a firm, decided,
and honest support.
In publishing a daily paper, we are well aware
of the heavy responsibility that will rest upon us
as its editors and conductors. We arc firmly con-
vinced, however, that a Demccratic daily paper at
the seat .f Government is much needed, iand at the
suggestion of our Democratic Iriends, we have
been induced to commence the undertaking, pro
vided a reasonable encouragement Is given to war-
rant it. The very moderate terms at which we
offer our daily paper ti sub cribers, must convince
every one that the object is not to realize therefrom
an extravagant compensation for our labors. On
the olier hand, we shall Ibe perfectly satitisfied it
our expenses do not fall behind our income.
The terms of the DAILY GAZE.TTE, are such as
will compel us to adopt the casH .Y sSTM, whieh
rule will be strictly adhered to.
The semi-weekly STATE CAPITOL GAZETTE (dou-
ble royal .ize) will be published a s heretofore, dur-
ing the sitting of ihe Legislature.
Any person ir .-e us five subscribers accom-
panied by :en dollars, shall receive a copy for their
Persons subscribing for either of the above pa-
pers, are requested ito send their orders on or before

",ROSPECTUS OF THE DAILY KEY-
I STONE.-TERMS: Two DOLLARS OR THE
t.,sio.-The undersigned being folly aware of
the importance of having a daily Democratic paper
published at the seat of Government of Pennsyl-
vania during the sessions of the Legislature, in
compliance with the request of a number of their
Democratic friends, propose to publish the KEY-
STONE daily during the approaching session, on
a royal sheet, at the low price of two dollars for the
session, or two cents per single copy.
The great object to be attained by the publication
of a daily paper at Harrisburg during the session
of the Legislature, is to give reports of the
debates in the two Houses, on all impor-
tant public questions, more at length than has
heretofore been customary, and to get those re-
ports out before the public, more expeditiously
than by the slow process of a semi-weekly
paper. These is an anxiety in the minds of the
reading public to obtain the earliest information in
regard to all public movements; and as the mea.
sures to be brought forward and discussed, at the
approaching session of our Legislature, will be of
the very first importance to the people at large, we
conceive that there can be no more suitable time
than the present for the commencement of an enter-
prise of this kind.
As one of the proprietors of the Keystene is a
professional stenographer, and has long been en-
gaged as a Reporter in Congress, in the Conven-
tion to amend the Constitution, and in the State
Legislature, he confidently hopes that he will
be enabled to conduct the Legislative Depart-
ment of the paper in a manner entirely satis-
factory to those members whose remarks he
may report, and the public at large. He will be
assisted by competent reporters, and will at all
times attend in one House himself to ensure faith-
ful and accurate reports of debates in the Legisla-
ture. The other proprietor will take charge of the
Editorial Department of the paper, and he has
heretofore had considerable experience in conduct-
ing a Democratic Journal, in another part of the
State, he hopes to be able to make the Keystone
acceptable not only to his political friends, but to
the reading public.
We shall also have a correspondent at Wash-
ington, who will give a daily synopsis of the busi-
ness tran'acted in the National Legislature; and an
account of all the political movements which may
be made at the seat of the General Government.
As we shall incur a very heavy expenditure,
over and above our own labors, in geiinig up our
Daily, and in employing Reporters, Coirespond-
ents, &c. we trust our friends throughout the
State will exert themselves to give our paper as
wide a circulation as possible.
The very low rate at which we have placed our
daily, will make it necessary for us to adopt the
CASH SYSTEM, so far, at least, as it is concerned],
and require payments to be made to it during the
first month of the session.
The semi-weekly Keystone (double royal siz?)
will be published as usual, during the session at two
Postmasters and others, sending us five subscri-
bers, accompanied by ten dollars, will be entitled
to a copy for their trouble.
Persons subscribing will please designate which
paper it is they desire.

operating on the ear, about four cases out of five
of deafness. He has restored to hearing a number

forty years; and this individual now hears well.

he invites all those who are deaf to come and be

THE UNITED STATES AND ENGLAND, OR FREE
TRADE AND MONOPOLY.
At a late public meeting in Liverpool, one of
the speakers, just then returned from the United
States, presented a graphic description of the states
of society in the two countries, so far as he had
observed them. He told his hearers that in the
West, a man who could do nothing but dig, could
earn a dollar and a half a day, and obtain board
and lodging for two dollars and a half per
week. The weekly profit, six dollars and a half,
must have appeared quite liberal to some of his
suffering hearers, who are compelled to maintain
families upon twenty-five cents daily. After con-
trasting the price of flour in New Orleans, 16 shil-
lings, or $4, with the price in Liverpool, 39 shil-
lings, or $9 75, he introduces his hearers to the
manufactories of Lowell. Here he found a
city of 25,000 inhabitants, not in existence fifteen
years since. Here he saw capital invested in
mills, amounting to $10,000,000. Here he saw
the female "operatives" turn out, and could not
distinguish them from "young ladies" in England;
for, among their other personal arrangements,
"they carried parasols." He found their wages
to be from $2 50 to $4 50 per week, clear of board
and lodging. He arrived in Liverpool on the twelfth
day after leaving Boston; and the first sight which
he saw in Liverpool "was a woman picking up
dung in the streets."
Here is matter for consideration; and to those
disposed to investigate, and to trace effects to
causes, it speaks volumes. American women who
labor with their hands for subsistence, "dress like
young ladies;" and English women who labor with
their hands for subsistence, "pick up dung in the
streets." Had this traveller talked with any of
these American "'operatives," or laboresses, he would
have found that they not only dressed like "young
ladies," but had the opinions, principles, senti-
ments, feelings, and accomplishments of "young
ladies." He would have found that, in the virtues
which dignify the human character, and the delica-
cies and refinements which adorn the female cha-
racter, they were superior to the wives and daugh-
ters of half the "nobility and gentry" of his own
country. And did he find an American woman, a
native American, "picking up dung in the streets"
in any part of the United States? No! Such a
sight has never been seen. He may travel over
the whole country for years, without finding a sin-
gle American white woman engaged in any em-
ployment, which, for its severity or other unplea-
sant characteristic, is more appropriate to the rough-
er sex. We admit that, in the slave States, he will
find African women engaged in field labors; and in
the free States, he will sometimes find foreign women
engaged in labors which American women would re
pudiate. But, while thoroughly opposed to slavery in
principle and detail, we may say, in mere justice to
slaveholders, that justice which we will deny to none,
that these very field working female slaves are
better fed, better clothed, and better lodged, than
multitudes of "free operatives" in English manu-
factories, or "free cultivators" on Irish estates.
And of the foreign women occasionally seen among
us in the employment of men, we may say that
they have not yet relinquished the habits of their
naative countries, and that their foreign husbands
and fathers have not yet learned that respect for
woman which is a distinguishing, a noble, a beauti-
ful trait of American character, and which is dis-
played, among other modes, in shielding them from
labors inappropriate to their sex. But while one
English traveller found no woman in our country
engaged in "picking up dung in the streets," we
are equally confident that he found no female
"operatives" in the English mills or on the Irish
estates, "dressed like young ladies." There he
could find nothing but toil and privation and suf-
fuing in the "operative," and overgrown wealth
and Asiatic luxury in the employer.
Such is the difference. What are its causes?
High tariffs for protection, paper money, and
enormous taxation; the very evils which English
brokers and their American agents would impose
upon this country. The wealthy proprietors of
manufacturing corporations insist that high tariffs
protect labor. Then why is labor so badly re-
warded in England, where tariffs are higher than
in any other country, and where the object of Go-
vernment, for centuries, has been to force manu-
facturing? If the assertion be true, protection ought
to produce ithe greatest degree of such result where
it is most extensively furnished. But these politi-
cal economists are wrong. High tariffs protect em-
ployers, but ultimately injure laborers. They give
great profits to manufacturing, tempt capitalists
into it, found corporations or associations of wealth,
and make the business of manufacturing the mono-
Spoly of the few. At the commencement of the
system, labor is well paid, because it is scarce.
But as the system advances, an overgrown popula-
tion of "mere operatives" is created, which is en-
tirely at the mercy of the employers. If the latter
combine to reduce wages, the only remedy of the
former is a combination to strike. And who can
hold out longest in this contest? The wealthy
owners, who can live upon their resources while
their mills are stopped, or the poor "ope-
ratives," who depend on daily toil for daily
bread? Besides, if the laws are made by the
wealthy employers, as they at vays have been in
England, and sometimes in this country, they can
punish the combinations of the poor, but authorize
those of the rich If any one of these suggestions
be denied, we refer for plenary proof to England,
where the system is in lull operation, and where it
has created a population of nabobs and slaves.
But we shall be told that our manufactures cannot
flourish without high protection. Then let them
perish, sooner than reduce us to the condition of
England, where the extremes of luxury and priva-
tion are in continual contact. But we deny the
position. Have onr manufactures declined since
the compromise? They are now more extensive
than ever, and our merchants can send them to fo-
reign markets in successful competition against
those of England, which are furnished with coun-
terfeit American marks as a measure of protection.
Besides, we can refer to some of the oldest manun
facturers of Massachusetts, who always protested
against higher tariffs than that of 1815. They
foresaw the mi-chiefs of high tariffs. They saw
thathigh tariff* would create companies without
capital, who would establish banks to procure ca-
pital, which would enhance all prices, and produce
overtrading. They knew that without protection
and paper expansion, they could conduct a profita-
ble business in manufacturing. Were theyfright?
Let the history of the last twenty-five years an-
swer the question !
But besides high tariffs as a fertile cause of
English misery, we may mention paper money.
In no country, excepting our own, has the paper
system endured longer and been pushed farther
than in Errian.t. It has occasionally wrought its
mischiefs in Russia and Austria; but in England,
where individual enterprise is less restrained by
law than in these two despotisms, it has produced a
practical despotism of gigantic and withering
power. All banking promotes monopolies; and in
no part of the world so much as in England, has
the associated capital, real or fictitious, of the few,
so thoroughly monopolized the labor of the many.
Gr'at employers, really not worth a dollar, can
command millions by bank credit, and profit by
the labor of thousands, while the poor laborer can
get no credit, but must buy for cash; and what is
the credit system to him but a curse, if it enhances
the prices of all that the laborer wants, and ena-
bles the employer to reduce his wages at pleasure?
Such is the effect of the paper credit system .in all
countries. It makes the rich richer, the poor
poorer; it furnishes capital to the employer, and
imposes burdens upon the laborer. The miSchiefs
of high taxation are too obvious to need any ex-

SUNDAY, Nov. 14, 6 p. m.
We recently alluded to the attempts that have
been made since the failure of the United States
Bank, by the parties indebted to it, to depreciate
the liabilities of the institution, in order that they
may profit by the fall in the discharge of their ob.
ligations to the Bank. For this purpose a power-
ful combination was got up by the former condac-
tors of the Bank and their friends, having in view
the sole object of discharging their debts to the
Bank, at the expense of the deluded holders of its
liabilities. This has been backed by other parties
for purposes of speculation. In illustration of this
position, we will give the recent movement in Uni-
ted States Bank notes. It is well known that du-
ring the past week the circulating bills of the
Bank rose from 47 cents discount to 65 a 70 cents
on the do lar in two days-a rise of 25 or 30 per
cent. This fact was sufficient to show that a
corner had beam got up in it. At the time of the
suspension of the United States Bank it is well
known that the Girard Bank was the only institu-
tion in Philadelphia that held none of its bills. Its
Cashier, Mr. Lewis, plumed himself for his saga-
city a good deal upon the occasion, and used
strong efforts to raise his own institution at the ex-
pense of the fallen monster. A clique was then
formed with certain parties in this city; Mr. Biddle,
Reuben M. Whitney, and others, in Philadelphia,
with the National Gazette, remodelled for their
organ, to decry the liabilities, heavy sales of the
notes at 60 a 90 days were made in both places.
It then appeared that the Girard Bank was in
possession of 3 to $400,000 of the notes of the Uni-
ted States Bank. As the Girard had none of these
notes at the date of suspension, she must either
have acquired them by purchase, or by special de-
posite, from individuals having obligations matu.
ring at the United States Bank. These notes were
lent out to brokers, who, by throwing them upon
the market, caused, in connection with the recent
efforts making by the clique, a fall to fifty
cents on the dollar in the value of the
notes. At this rate, Mr. Biddle purchased and
paid into the Bank over $100,000 and others, mak-
ing $600,000, paid in on the last assignment within
a short time. Notwithstanding their payments,
the bills continued at a low rate until one day this
week, when the Girard Bank called in the notes
lent. The result was that the notes were not to be
had, and the price rose 20 per cent. in a day, and
would have gone up to par, but the borrowers of
the notes became panic struck, and two brokers
went to Philadelphia to ask for time to buy them
up. This was granted, and the matter being kept
quiet, the bills have remained firm. The object
now is to buy up the notes quietly as fast as possi-
ble, but the probability is that the notes are not to
be had. This operation in the notes has had a
powerful effect upon the stock of the Bank, both
here and in Europe, as, when its value is discussed,
the great depreciation in the notes is appealed to
as conclusive evidence that nothing remains to the
stockholder. The terrible destruction of property
that has taken place, through the means of that insti-
tntien, is without parallel in the history ofcommer-
cmial transactions, and not the least singular of the
features of the case is the fact that the very men who
caused this widespread ruin should be allowed,
now that the instkution has ceased to exist as a
bank, to make such wanton' havoc with the
property of holders of the liabilities and the stock
of the bank. The capital of the bank was $35,-
000 000; of this $20,000,000 are held abroad. The
corner in the notes, assisted by the movements of
a well known house in Wall street, to whom we
have frequently alluded, and who, being agents for
a large number of foreign stockholders, have sold
the stock under trust in the market, in o:der both
to use the money and to make a profit by buying
in at less rates, have combined to depress the stock
within the last ninety days full $20 per share,
and hereby annihilated $7,000,000 of property,
in order to put a paltry sum in their own pockets.
According to the return of the bank last year,
there were 52,076 shares, valued at $5,207,600,
h-ld by females and orphans. Therefore, by the
operation alluded to, $1 041.520 has been taken
out of the pockets of these helpless individuals.
Who can contemplate without horror, the terrible
tass of human wrelchedness growing out of these
h artless acts? By the last accounts from England
if ere was a strong movement tin-f,., to bring the
1 ink agents there to an account i in oe manner in
Shich .the property has been managed.
"EVIL UPON ITSELF SHALL BACK ECOIL."-The
o rerwhelming prostration of the Whig party in
MNichigan it appears is owing to its own dishonora-
ble conduct. It possessed a majority in the last
L-gislature, and with a view to secure its continu-
a ice even against the will of a majority of the peo-
)'e, it districted the State for the choice of Sena-
t,.rs and Repre.entatives, in such manner as it
was calculated would give Wh g majority ia a

tocratic, and every one of the 46 members of As-
:o sbly heard frorn is of the same party. The
It use consists of fifty members, and the chance of
.t y Whigs is very doubtful.-Pennsylvanian.
There is such a thing as popular opinion, and if
oir public banks choose to dig a pit for themselves,
that arbiter of human conduct will not be slow in
precipitating them into it, should they deserve it.
fhe Governor of the State, we learn from unques-
tionable authority, is strongly in favor of early re-
sumption, not the sort of resumption facetiously
explained by our friends of the Picayune-re-
sumption after the day of judgment, and, if a time
be not fixed by the board of presidents within the
i.ext ninety days, the gubernatorial message will
be apt to contain some wholesome and salutary
truths. And the Legislature will not be slow to
act, for the question is no longer a party one, and
no earthly power can make it so again. Whigs and
Democrats promiscuously go for resumption, and
we hope, for the interest of all concerned, for the
sake of the high character which our bank mana-
gers have hitherto borne, that they will avoid all
legislative interference with the money medium
of the State, by promptly proclaiming the time
when heir institutions will bring their toes up to
the specie standard of honesty and good morals.

DR. BouCeattI's PaoanRss.-The following ar.
ticle from a French writer "on the preservation,
&c. of wood," was translated for the Savannah Re-
Since the Academy of Sciences and the Cham-
ber of Deputies approved and recommended to
public attention the ingenious process, discovered
by Dr. Boucherie, of Bordeaux, for the preserva-
tion, elasticity, hardness, and coloration of the va-
rious kinds ot wood, the learned and commercial
world await, with impatience, the results of the
experiments which are going to be instituted on a
The learned Doctor has received from Govern-
ment a mission to experiment on the fine forests of
the south of France, and every facility has been
afforded to him for the successful application of his
discovery. The process employed by him is very
simple, and he has made no secret of it. It con-
sists in using, together, vital force and pressure,
in order to propel into the whole texture of the lar-
gest bodies of a vegetable nature certain liquids,
conveniently prepared. These liquids, insinuating
themselves quickly through the whole organization
of the fibre, from the trunk to the most delicate
fibres of the leaves, drive before them the aqueous
parts of the sap, which either evaporate or flow
down, whilst the salts that they hold in solution,
combining with the mucilaginous or solid particles,
destroy forever, if they are of an antiseptic nature,
all tendency to fermentation, and consequently to
Numerous experiments have shown to Dr. Bou-
cherie that deliquescent salts, and the primitive
waters of salt pits, communicate to wood a very
great flexibility; and this is such that a wooden
ruler, although exposed for many months to the
changes of the atmosphere, preserves its elasticity,
without undergoing any sensible alteration. He
has also found that pyrolignite of iron hardens a
thin plank, so as to render it impenetrable to a
musket ball, and at the same time that it saves it
from decay; and that fluids imparting color and
smell can communicate to wood their valuable pro-
perties, so that they make it fit for the heaviest
works, as well as for the construction of the rich-
est and most delicate furniture.
But of all the public departments, the one which
is likewise to derive the greatest advantages from
the beautiful discovery of Dr. Boucherie is no doubt
the Navy. Everyone knows with what rapidly
the body and the masts of slips of warare destroyed.
By means of the new process the durability of ships
can be prolonged, if not indefinitely, at least in
a very high proportion; and also the wood used
for railroads becoming incorruptible, much ex-
pense may be saved, and great benefits obtained.
Moreover, a new fact seems to show that it
might be possible henceforth to dispense with the
very heavy expense of coppering ships. Timber
prepared by Dr. Boucherie, and placed in contact
with sea water, during a long voyage from Bor-
deaux to Bourbon, has been preserved from all
kinds of alteration.
The results of the experiments now in progress
will soon be known; and, indeed, we cannot doubt
of the success when we consider those already ob-
tained and attested by the report of the learned
Dumas, in the name of a commission composed of
Messrs. Mirbel, Arago, Poucelet, Audouin, Gain-
bey, and Boussingault, members of the Academy
of Sciences. The authority attached to such names
at too great for requiring any commentary on our
part. We shall merely extract from that remarka-
ble report the following passage:
"The aim of Dr. Boucherie is to render woo.d
much more lasting, to preserve its elasticity, to
protret it against those variations of volume, re-
sulting from the influence of wet and dry weather;
to diminish its combustibility, increase its tenacity
and hardness; and lastly, to impart to it colors, and
even odors, various and lasting.
"To affirm that all these conditions have been
fulfilled, by means of common and cheap sub-
stances, is to fix the serious attention of the Aca-
demy on the very important subject which we have
LEGAL DEcitONS.-We are indebted to the Buf-
falo Cammercial Advertiser for the subjoined ab-
stract of several decisions of general importance,
made by Judge McLean at the recent session of
the United States District Court sitting at Detr it:
In the case o( a demurrer set up against a cre-
ditor's bill, insisting that the United States Court
had no tight to sequestrate choses in action or
equitable property to satisfy a more legal debt,
when there was no fraud or other circumstance af-
fording specific ground for the interference of a
court of chancery-the court decided in favor of
The grounds of the decision were-that, by the
statute, the right was given to every judgment cre-
ditor to file his, bill in chancery, after exhausting
his remedy at'law, to procure satisfaction of his
debt out of the credits or other equitable property
ol the deferndant; that this right was at incident to
the contract, and in ine nature ot th rulee of pro
perty; that as such the Federal court would recog-
nise and enforce it in cases where, from the cha-
racter of the parties or other circumstances, the
court have jurisdiction of the case; and that this
view rendered it unnecessary to inquire what was
the rule of the English chancery on this subject.
Another case of general interest was that of
Root vs. Wallace, as an endorser of several post
notes of the Bank of Saline, amounting to about
$23,000. In this case the court decided that the
issue of post notes by banks subject to the safety
fund act of Michigan was illegal; that the notes
were void; that they could not furnish the foun-
dation for a recovery, nor be used as dividend of
a loan. Whether money actually advanced on the
notes could be recovered of the person receiving it
was not decided. This decision affects all the
paper of the safety fund banks in that State paya-
ble on time. Under circumstances, the plaintiff
submitted to a non-suit.
Another decision relates to notices of protest,
and is to the effect that such notice, sent to a post
office in a town adjoining the town of the en-
dorser's residence, where letters to him were occa-
sionally directed and received by him, was sufficient
to fix his liability. In this case h non-suit was
claimed on the ground that the cause of action
was of such trifling amount (being a note of only
three dollars) that it did not come within the juris-
diction of the court. This was refused, as the
amount of damages claimed in the declaration was
five hundred dollars, which decided the question of
jurisdiction, but judgment for costs was given
against the plaintiff.
Another decision is of importance to those hav-
ing business relations with the people of M ,cawea'.
The Legislature of that State, at its last session,
passed an act forbidding the sale of real or per-
sonal estate on process from courts of law or
equity, unless it brought two-thirds of its cash va-
lue, as fixed by appraisal. The court adopted this
principle so far as relates to the sale of real estate
declaring the necessity of the adoption, by the
Federal court, of the rules of property of the
State, and the propriety of conforming its practice
to that of the States within which it held its ses-

ExTAnORDIWARtV .AtiR.-Within the last few
days a person of the name of Pardue, upwards of
seventy years of age, has become an inmate of St.
Giles's workhouse, and the following is a tale as
related by him respecting a matrimonial affair in
which he had engaged: It appears that he is a
widower, by trade a shoemaker, and formerly re-
sided at Potter's Bar, Enfieli. Some months ago
a friend called upon him, aid told him that he
knew of something which, if he liked to undertake
the part required of him, world be to hisipecuniary
advantage. He then said hat a lady, between
forty and fifty years of age, vho lived in London,
had a large sum of money milled to her, but she
could not enjoy it unless she married; that she had
an aversion to a married life, lut he had mentioned
Pardoe's name to the lady's solicitor, who wished
to have an interview with him, and to make a pro-
position. Pardoe replied tha, he was willing to beI
engaged in any way, and having disposed of what
little property he possessed, he came up to town
and waited upon the solicitor, with whose name
and address he had been mtde acquainted, and
who told him that the lady vould marry such a
person as himself, but would not see him before
the marriage took place; that she would not
live with h i'm after the ceremony had been per-
formed, and that he must immediately afterwards
be ready to sign with her a deed of separation,
and concluded by asking him if be was willing,
on those terms, to be the bridegroom? For
doing so he should receive the sum of 140.
and he should subsequently be assisted with money
should he require it. Pardoe acquiesced to the
proposition, and by appointment went, accompa-
nied by an attorney, to whom he had made known
the circumstances, to the hou.-e of a register of
births, deaths, and marriages, where he fund the
lady and her solicitor anxiously waiting his arri-
val, his intended bride being closely veiled, which
prevented him from baying more than an imper-
fect vie-a of her features. A license ,rin re pro-
vided, the form of marriage was gone 1'i ...u',i by
the registrar, and at its conclusion, as he had been
informed would be the case, the Ieed of separation
was produced, to which both he and the lady affixed
their signatures, after which, the lady, 'I t:un1--noiL
good morning, retired. The attorney (Pardoe) had
then engaged, handed him aver 440, which he had
received, on the part of the bride, from her solici-
tor, and he has not since received any communi-
cation from the parties. The above named sum,
his marriage portion, being all expended, and be-
ing too infirm to follow his trade, he was obliged to
make application to the parish of St. Giles, to
which he belongs, and the result has been his ad-
mission into the work-house.-English paper.
CATALINI AND GOETrE.-Catalini was almost
entirely uneducated, even in music. Her want of
literary attainments, joined to her vivacity in con-
versation, sometimes produced ludicrous scenes.
When at the court at Weimar, she was placed, at
a dinner party, by the side of Goethe, as a mark
of respect to her from bet royal host.- The lady
knew nothing of Goethe; but, being struck by his
majestic appearance, and the great attention of
which he was the object, she inquired of the gen-
tleman on the other side what was his name. "The
celebrated Goethe, Madame," was the. answer.
"Pray on what instrument does he play?" was the
next question. "He is no performer, Madame; he
is the author of 'Werler.'" "Oh, yes, yes, I re-
member," said Cathlini, and turning to the vene-
rable poet, she addressed him, "Ah, sir, what an
admirer I am of 'Wertet!' A low bow was the
acknowledgment for so flattering a compliment.
"I never," continued the lively lady, "I never read
any thing so laughable inmy life. What a capital
farce it is, sir!" "Madame," said the poet, look-
ing aghast, "the 'Sorrows of Werter' a farce!"
"0, yes, never was anything so exquisitely ridicu-
lous!" rejoined Catalini, laughing heartily as she
enjoined the remembrance. And it turned out
that she had been talking all the while of a ridicu-
airs parody of "Werter," wh'ch had been per-
formed at one of the minor theatres of Paris, and
in which the ,*riin irti.th of Goethe's tale had
been unmercifully ridiculed. The poet did not get
over his mortification the whole evening; and the
fair singer's credit at the court of Weimar was
sadly impaired by the display of her ignorance of
the "Sorrows of Wetter.'"

boys from different schools met one fnloe day.upon
the ice. They eyed each other with rather indig-
nant looks, and with defiance on each brow.
"What are you glowrin at, Billy?" "What's that
to you? I'll look where 1 have a mind, an' hinder
me if you daur." A hearty blow was the return to
this, and then such a battle began! It being Sa-
"nr. iv. at the boys of both schools were on the ice,
and the fight instantly became general and drepe-
rate. I asked one of the party whit they were pelt-
ing the other for? what they had done to them?
"0 naething at a', man; we just want to gie
thean a good thrashin." After fighting until they
were exhausted, one of the principal heroes
stepped for h between, covered with blood, and hi.
clothes torn to tatters, and addressed the belligerent
parties thus: "Weel; I'll tell you what we'll do wi'
ye; if ye let us alane, we'll let ye alane." There
was no more of it; the war was at an end, and the
boys scattered away to their play. I thought at
the time, ard have often thought since, that that
trivial affray was the best epitome of war ia gene-
ral that I have ever seen. Kings and ministers of
state are junt a set of grown up children, exactly
like the children I speak of, with only this material
difference: that, instead of 'ghting out the needless
quarrels they 'lave raised, they sit in safety and
look on; hound on their innocent but servile sub-
jects to bat le;and then, after a waste of blood and
treasure, are gia'l io make the boys' conditions:
"If yc''ll lt us alane, we'll let ye alane."-The El-
trick Shepherd's Lay Sermons.

AMERICAN CROWN WINDOW GLASS,
manufacture- 1 in the village of Redford,
county of Clinton, ani State ol Nkw York.
To the Redford Crown GIa.- ha; been awarded
the first premium at the American Institute in the
city of New York lor five successive years, and has
received a gold medal, in commendation of its su-
This Glass is made from white flint sand, ob-
tained in the vicinity of the works, and is the only
Crown Glass made from that species of sand. It
is capable of standing every change of climate, ner
will it lose its lustre by age.
The Redford and Saranac Crown Window Class
are distinguished from ordinary Glass by the un-
common evenness and beauty of surface, the supe-
rior transparency and lighmtness of color, the great
thickness, and the general excellence of the mate
rials which eompo-e them. The surface not being
polished after being blown, retains the enamel, bril-
liancy, and hardness, and is not subject to the objec-
tion so often applied to Plate Glass, of being easily
defaced and permanently bedimmed by dust; being
made of extra thickness, will, without injury,
withstand violent winds, hail storms, jars of can.
non, &c. Its use, in the end, will prove more eco-
nomical, independent of its adding so much to the
beautiful appearance of buildings.
Specimens of this deservedly popular Glass may
be seen in the New York Exchange and Custom-
House, Howard's Hotel, Bronson's Buildings,
Broadway, Centre Market, and a great number of
private residences and stores in various parts of
the city; also, in the Exchange and Custom-House,
Boston; Girard College, Pniladelphia; Exchange
Hotel, Baltimore; in the public buildings at Wash-
ington city; the Capitol at Raleigh, North Carolina,
and in many both public and private edifices
throughout the United States. It has been uned in
a great number of steamboats and railroad cars,
and given entire satisfaction. It is believed that
the above will suffice to prove that this Glass
stands pre-eminent, and that it deservedly merits
the approbation of builders and consumers of Glass.
The Saranac Crown Glass is most used in stores
and buildings of the second order, green houses,
&c. where strength and clearne's are particularly
desired, and will range about 331 per cent. cheaper
than Redford. The double thickness is always
used for light-houses, and is taken by the true eco-
nomist for sky lights, steamboats, ships' cabin win-
Ground Glass for sky lights, churches, and ar-
tists' windows, furnished to any pattern or size. The
Glass is carefully packed in stout boxes, nailed, and
secured so as to be transported with safety to any
part of the United States.
For the more complete satisfaction of persons at
a distance, who may not have an opportunity to
examine this beautiful article, the following testi-
monials are respectfully offered for consideration.
Extract from the report ot the committee of the
American Institute, October, 1837:
"For richness of lustre and brilliancy of surface,
as well as thickness and strength, the Redford Glass
is the most beautiful article of the kind that has
ever fallen under our notice, either of domestic or
foreign production; and it affords a proud specimen
of the skill and enterprise of American manufac-

mitted us to use their names in commendation of
the above Glass:

The heifer is nearly all red, a very handsome ani-

their way to the chain bridge perhaps, as the cow
came from Loudoun county, Virginia. I will

or some other of the West India Islands. If the
fervent aspiration of thousands could secure his
recovery, then might we be sure that the service of
this peerless statesman would not soon be lost to
Mr. CLAY, during the extra session, gave the
Democratic members, who complained of the in-
tolerable fatigue of sitting from tan in the morning
until the sultry night brought up the dog star, a re-
cipe against the diseases they apprehended. "Rise
as I do, (said Mr. CLAY) before the sun in the morn-
ing-spend an howr or two in exercise en horseback
or on foot-then make a toilette (with the aid of a
man CHARLEY, we suppose) and be ready at tenfor
business in the Capitol, and I will ensure against the
maladies threatened by the tide water swamps of
the rivers that surround the Capitol even in
the dog days, and the exhaustion of our
long sessions. At all events, I will pasy
the doctor's bills." To these remarks, which
we well remember, Dr. Lrxr replied with a
warning; and it would seem, from the Tribune, that
fate has taken Mr. CLAY at his word, and that he
will have the doctor's bills to pay. We wish most
sincerely, however, that he may be only sick of
politics-sick of the work of the extra session, and
that he is not really suffering in his "health, im-
Spaired by his intense labors and anxieties at the extra
sessionn" We trust that, like old NORTHuMBEaR-
LAms, he is only "crafty sick;" but if it be other.
wise, and he should visit Cuba for his health, we
cannot give a better proof that we do not beat him
malice than by recommending him to consult the
distinguished Cuban physician to whom we feel
that we are indebted for the fortunate result of our
last year's visit to Cuba. He will find Dr. MEIKLE-
xAM of Havana, a man of genius and profound
skill in his profession, and adorned with many of
the noble traits of character which belonged to his
near kinsman, Sir WALTER ScoTT. And, what
we know will be a still greater motive with Mr.
CLAY to make his acquaintance, he will find him the
husband of Mr. JzpFFERSON'S youngest granddaugh-
ter, one of the most amiable and excellent of her fa-
mily race, who, by some strange fatality, are all, for
the most part, banished from the country-the in-
dependence of which Mr. J aEFFERSON declared and
ably contributed to maintain-to seek their for-
tunes in lands lying under the most despotic rule.
MR. NICHOLSON, OF TENNESSEE.
The brief speech of Mr. NICHOLWON at the
festival given to Mr. POLK, condenses very
strongly some parts of the political conduct of the
late Cabinet, and their Whig friends, to whom
they owed their stations. We think it would do
good if the Democratic press would spread his tes-
timony of the doings under his eye at Washington
before their readers.
Ing Mr. Granger that he had a considerable sum
of public money, and requesting him to relieve him
of it. It was not strange, said Mr. N. with such
a Postmaster General,the Department should be in
debt, and that it should be quartered upon the
Mr. N. said, he should not pursue the subject
of proscription through the other Departments-he
regarded it now as fully settled by the practice of
the party in power, that the officers of the country
are regarded by them as spoils to be fought for
Mr. N. next referred to the clamor which was
raised in the Presidential election on the subject
of extravagance in the expenditures. He said, no
one present could have forgotten how economical
the Whig orators promised to be when they got
into power. They denounced the wastefulness of
Mr. Van Buren, and promised great retrenchment;
all would remember how industriously the misre-
presentations of Mr. Ogle as to the White House
had been circulated; he would not speak harshly
of Mr. Ogle as he was dead-but his inventory of
the royal splendor of the palace was fresh in the
minds of all. Well, said Mr. N. he had been in
the While House and his Whig friends might be
surprised to be told that all the splendid furniture
was still there-there were the looking glasses "as
big as a poor man's plantation," there were the
gorgeous curtains, the candelabras, the chande-
liers, and, above all, there were those famous "gold
spoons," all, all were still there in the use of the
Whig President-but that was not all; he said that
six thousand dollars had been expended since the
Whigs came into power to add to the furniture of
the White House. Who, said Mr. N. did not
suppose, during the canvass, that those evidences
of royal extravagance and splendor would be "pro-
scribed" by the economical Whigs; but not so;
they were still in the White House, and there they
Mr. N. said, it would be remembered that the
Whig orators had relied upon the gross amount of
the annual expenditures to sustain the charge of
extravagance against Mr. Van Buren. They had
promised to bring down the-e amounts by vast re-
trenchments to the standard of the "economical"
administration of John Q. Adams. They con-
tended that fifteen millions of dollars, annually,
would be enough for them when they got into
power. Well, said Mr. N. we can now bring
these promises to the test of experience. Provi-
sious for the expenses of ;se year have been made,
and instead of fifteen, we find them very near
thirty millions for the first year of Whig economy.
This, said he, is an increase of nearly eight mil-
lions over the expenditures of the last year of Mr.
Van Buren's administration, aad nearly double the
amount which we -were promised would be suffi-
cient. The Whigs had professed to be much in
favor of low taxes and high wages"-we had al-
ready the proof of their love of "low taxes" in the
new Tariff bill, which has been so ably dissected
to-day, and we had no doubt, that we should find
their professions in favor of "high wages" equally
fallacious. He should be greatly disappointed if
the taxes were not raised still higher, and the ex-
penditures swelled still further in the future policy
of the party, if Capt. Tyler did not head them.
Mr. N. said, that he would not pursue the suab-
ject of broken promises further, as he knew he was
violating an arrangement of the Committee. He
would be glad, however, to say something in de-
fence of Captain Tyler.
(The cries of "go on," "go on" were again re-
newed with great warmth.)
Well then, said Mr. N. I will "go on" a few
moments longer, and trust the committee will par-
don me. He said, that it was clear that Captain
Tyler was not "headed," but he was greatly mis-
taken if another celebrated Captain was not. If
the Whigs were correct in attributing their late
disastrous defeats to Captain Tyler's vetoes, then
we must admit that he is an exceeding great Cap-
tain. Bat the Whigs who entertain such opinions,
do Mr. Tyler too much credit. As much as Mr.
N. approved and applauded the two vetoes, he
could not admit that they were the main cause of
our late astounding victories. He attributed these
victories to the effect produced upon the public
mind by the system of measures adopted at the ex-
Mr. N. said, he had heard some surprise ex-
pressed at the fact, that in the late elections there
was a great falling oat in Whig votes, whilst there
was but a small increase of the Democratic votes
over those of last November. The Whigs seemed
to be surprised that so very many of their friends
were absent from the polls at the late elections.
He said, it was true, that great numbers of them
did come up missing at the late election, and he
should be as much surprised, if very many of

FATAL AccIDENT.-Yesterday morning a young
girl, about twenty years old, named Jane Noble,
who resided at the corner of Eighty-sixth street and
Seventh avenue, was accidently shot by her lather,
William Noble, a master mason, who wa- a con-
tractor for some of the public works. In conse-
quence of having some time back received an inti-
mation that the house would be attacked by some
dissolute characters, residing in his neighborhood,
he kept fire-arms ready loaded in order to resist
them. Yesterday morning hlie was showing one of
his pistols to a neighbor who came into his house,
and as there wai no cap upon the touchhole, he
cocked it and pulled the trigger, when it immedi-
ately exploded, and the charge entered his daugh-
ter's head, who was standing within a few feet of
him, and killed her on the spot. It was subse-
quently ascertained that there was a '-i..... ..: ca.

in the Superior C '11. Irt ihr yeatir 1836, Messrs.
Samuel L. Gouverneur, William Gibbons, of Eli-
zabeth, N. J. Mr. Robert L. Stevens, and Mr.
John C. Stevens, became subscrihbe6s to a produce

races are based on the prospective progeny of cer-
tain horses named by the parties, so that the com-
petitors for the prizes are generally blood horse,

hope the simile wiil be excused,) are born fur the
particular duty assigned them. There is a
la.w of New York niii-i..', such over the
Union Course, Wuieh was made, doubtless,
with a view to the encouragement of good
stock. Mr. Gouverneur appeared with his
filly, and her dam, on the Union Course, in
1833, but was given to understand by Mr.
Botts that his colt could have no chance against
the others, it being weak and inferior, and adis'd
him to pay forfeit. Mr. Gouverneur dii not appear
on the course, as agreed apon, in the spring meet-
ing of 1839, nor did he pay forfeit. The contest
was between the colts of Mr. Robert L. Stevens
and Mr. Gibbons, and was won by the latter, who
demanded his $250 from Mr. Gouverneur. It was
not paid, and the present suit is b-ought. Mr.
Gouverneur pleaded his own cause, but the jury,
under direction of the court, brought in a verdict
in favor of the plaintiff for $294, principal and in-
terest, subject to the decision of the bench upon
certain points of law involved.-Mew Era.
STABLINGO MILCH Cows -We have been much
surprised at the increased quantity of milk cows
afford from being stabled in winter, which some
recent experiments have proved. A near neighbor
suffered his cows from necessity, to run in the open
air, during the early part of the winter, and, as
usual, their milk greatly diminished in quantity,
although they were well ftd on hay and mangel
wurtzelo He then stabled them, without changing
their food, and taking care, of course, tqgive them
plenty of clean litter. He lately informed us as to
the result, that his cows now gave him just double
the milk they did when exposed. A similar expe-
riment by the writer, has proved nearly equally
successful.-JVew Genesee Farmer.
TnE Pa. rn-- r of MAINE.--A Portland paper
states that the quantities of lime'annually exported

cost of the raw material being about fifteen cents
per cask. Four towns in the neighborhood pro.

built in the district in which this material is found
was, during the past year, 18 ships, 11 brigs, and
16 choosers. Another resource on Maine, now
almost dormant, is the immense quantities of slate

PUBLIC MEETING AT COLUMBUS, GEO.
The melancholy intelligence of the death of the
Hon. JOHN FOSvTTH, late Secretary of State of the
United States, having reached this city, a public
meeting was forthwith called, when, on motion of
he Hon. Thomas F. Foster, Gen. James C.
Watson was called to the chair, and Dr. William
S. Chepley requested to act as secretary.
On motion of Colonel Foster, a committee of
seven was appointed to report suitable resolutions
on the sad occasion which convened the meeting.
The committee appointed were the Hon. Tho-
mas F. Foster, Dr. Thomas Hoxey, Hon. Mans-
field Torrance, Hon. Grigsby E. Thomas, Dr. John
J. Boswell, Kenneth McKenzee, esq. and Philip
T. Schley, esq.
TIhe committee retired, and, after a short ab-
sence, returned and reported the following pream-
ble and resolutions, which, after a most eloquent
eulogium on the deceased by the Hon. T. F. Fos-
ter, and some exceedingly interesting remarks by
the Hon. G. E. Thomas, were unanimously
The occasion which convenes us is one of sad
and solemn interest, and of deepest affliction to the
people of Georgia; the knell of death is again
sounded in our ears; our State has lost one of its
brightest ornaments, one of iis favorite and most
distinguished sons. JOHN FORSYTH, the public
servant of thirty years, the gifted and accom-
plished orator, the statesman of liberal and elevated
views, of high intellectual endowments, is no
longer among the 'v;r, ., He died on Friday, the
22d of Ocober, in '-. 1'. of Washington; and, in
contemplating this melancholy dispensation of
Divine Providence, there is a mournful consola-
tion in the reflection that he breathed his last on the
theatre of his most useful labors, and of his greatest
intellectual achievements. He fell, it may be said,
on the field of his fame. The hall and domes of
the Capitol still reverberate with the thrilling tones
of his attractive and masterly eloquence. The
files of the State Department abound with enduring
monuments of his successful diplomacy. In his
hands the interests of his country were never sacri-
ficed; its dignity never compromitted; its honor
never betrayed. He was the sentinel that never
slept, the champion that never cowered or quailed.
lBut it is not our purpose to speak his eulogy.
"We come to bury, not to praise him." We come
to mingle our griefs and sympathies with a be-
reaved and afflicted family who have been over-
whelmed by this awful dispen-ation of an all wise
and ovoteruling Providence. We come to console
with our fellow countrymen upon the great public
iuss which we have sustained, and to gather with
them around ihe tomb, and render the last sad tri-
bute of01 respect to the deceased Patriot.

The physicians of St. .\u.ii-i;ne contradict the
report that has appeared in some papers of the
prevalence of a malignant epidemic in that city.
In thi,ir publication they say: "That a few cases
of violent congestive fever made their appearance
in a certain limnitedportion of our city, produced by
obvious l;cal causes, is not denied. But when we
assert, on our own positive knowledge, that but eight
deaths, from fever of every description, originating
in the city, have occurred in the last twelve
months, it is plain that no epidemic fever could
have prevailed. Oar population, by the late cen-
sus, amounts to 2,800, and we doubt whether there
is a town of half our population in the whole South
in which mortality from fever has been so small
during the same period.
"The flctt death took place in August. Two
more occurred in S-plember, and five in the month

to those requiring them. When it is considered
that a large number of bids at every letting are

will find t:eir account in procuring the blanks
from him. A statement of the old pay and ser-

FOR THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE AND APPUNDIX.
These works have now been published by us for
tIn consecutive sessions of Congress, commencing
with the session of 1832-3. They have had such
wide circulation, and have been so universally ap-
proved and sought after by the public, that we
deem it necessary only in this prospectus to say
that they will be continued at the next session of
Congress, and to state, succinctly, their contents,
the form in which they will be printed, and the
prices for them.
The Congressional Globe is made up of the daily
proceedings of the two Houses of Congress. The
speeches of the members are abridged, or condensed,
to bring them into a reasonable, or readable length.
All the resolutions offered, or motions made, are
given at length, in the mover's own words; and the
yeas and nays on all the important questions. It
is printed with small type-brevier and nonpareil
-on a double royal sheet, in quarto form, each
number containing 16 royal quarto pages. It is
printed as fast as the business done in Congress
furnishes matter enough for a number-usually one
number, but sometimes two numbers, a week. We
have invariably printed more numbers than there
were weeks in a session. The approaching session
of Congress, it is expected, will continue 7 months;
if so, subscribers may expect between 30 and 40
numbers, which, together, will make between 500
and 600 royal quarto pages.
The Appendix is made up of the PEtSIDENT'S
annual message, the reports of the principal offi-
cers of the Government that accompany it, and
all the long speeches of members of Congress,
written out or revised by themselves. It is printed
in the same form as the Congressional Globe, and
usually makes about the same number of pages.
Heretofore, on account of the set speeches being
so numerous and so long, we have not completed
the Appendix until one or two months after the
close of the session; but, in future, we intend to
print the speeches as fast as they shall be prepared,
and of course shall complete the work within a
few days after the adjournment. *
Each of these works is complete in itself;
but it is necessary for every subscriber who
desires a full knowledge of the proceedings
of Congress, to have both; because, then, if
here should be any ambiguity in the synopsis
of the speech, or any denial of its correctness,
as published in the Congressional Globe, the reader
may turn to the Appendix to see the speech at
length, corrected by the member himself.
Now, there is no source but the Congressional
Globe and Appendix, from which a person can ob-
tain a full history of the proceedings of Congress.
GALES and SEATON'S Register of Debates, which
contained a history, has been suspended for
three or four years. It cost about five times as
much for a session as the Congressional Globe
and Appendix, and did not contain an equal
amount of matter, a great portion of the current
proceedings being omitted. The speeches of both
parties are, published in the Daily Globe, and in
the Congressional Globe and Appendix: other pa-
pers publish their otown side only. We are enabled
to print the Congressional Globe and Appendix at
the low rate now proposed, by having a large
quantity of type, and keeping the Congressional
matter that we set up for the daily and semi.
weekly Globes, standing for the Congressional
Globe and Appendix. If we had to set up the
matter purposely for these works, we could not
afford to print them for double the price now
Complete indexes to both the Congressional
Globe and the Appendix are printed at the close of
each session, and sent to all subscribers for them.
We have on hand 3,000 or 4,000 surplus copies
of the Congressional Globe and Appendix for the ex-
tra session, which make together near one thousand
royal quarto pages. They give the fullest history
of Congress that has ever been published. We
now sell them for $1 each; that is, $1 for the Con-
gressional Globe, and $1 for the Appendix. We pro-
pose to let subscribers for the Congressional Globe
and Appendix for the next session, have them for 60
cents each. They will be necessary to understand
fully the proceedings of the next session. The
important matters discussed at the last, will be
brought up at the next session, in consequence of
the universal dissatisfaction evinced in the late
elections with the vast and novel system of policy
which the new powers have introduced, and which
was forced through Congress without consulting
public opinion, or even allowing the full discussion
usual in regard to subjects of ordinary interest.
The reports of the Congressional Globe and A ppea-
dix are not in the least degree affected by the party
bias of the Editor. They are given precisely as
written out by the Reporters and the members
themselves. And the whole are subject to the re-
vision and correction of the speakers, as they pass
in review in our daily sheet, in case any misun-
derstanding or misrepresentation of their remarks
We make a daily analysis of the doings in Con-
gress, and give our opinions in it freely, but this is
published only in the Daily, Semi-weekly, and
Weekly Globes. The Daily Globe is $10, the
Semi-weekly Globe $5, and the Weekly Globe $2
per annum, in advance. The Weekly Globe is
printed in the same form as the Congressional
Glob, and Appendix, 3nd a complete index made
to it at the end of each year.
For the Congressional Globe and Appendix for
the last Extra Session, $1.
For the Congressional Globe for ths next session,
$1 per copy.
For the Appendix for the next session, $1 per
Six copies of either of the above works will be
sent for $5; twelve copies for $10, and so on in
proportion for a greater number.
Payments may be transmitted by mail, postage
paid, at our risk. By a rule of the Post Office De-
partment, postmasters are permitted to frank letters
containing money for subscriptions.
The notes of any bank, current where a sub-
scriber resides, will be received by us at par.
To insure all the numbers, the subscriptions
shouldd be in Washington by the 15th December
next, at farthest, though it is probable that we
,hall print enough surplus espies to fill every sub-
,cription that may be paid before the 1st day of
D ,No attention will be paid to any order unless
the money accompanies it.
The Democratic papers with which we exchange
will please give this Prospectus a few insertions.

p PROSPECTUS FOR THE YEOMAN.-
SThe extraordinary success which attended
the "MAGICIAN" during the recent Presidential
campaign, has influenced thesubscribers to propose
a similar publication during the approaching Gu-
bernatorial contest, to be entitled THE YEOMAN.
The 1st No. will be issued on the FOURTH OF
MARCH next-giving the proceedings of the De-
mocratic State Convention, and will appear every
Thur-.lay morning thereafter, to the close of the
The approaching struggle for the Chief Magis-
tracy of Pennsylvania will unquestionably once
more fiercely arouse the conflicting elements of the
two great rival parties-Democratic and Federal.
The former, seeing nothing in recent results to in-
duce doubt of the intrinsic propriety of its mea-
sures, will leave not a stone unturned to regain
power, where it has been lost, and preserve it,
where it remains. The latter, emboldened by suc-
cess in the National Government, will extend its
Argus eyes into other quarters for objects of con-
quest; and endeavor to wrest from the Democracy
the ascendancy, which it yet fortunately retains in
many of the States. Having, by the unscrupulous
use of the "pipe laying" system, unexpectedly suc-
ceeded in storming the CITADEL of freedom,
their next object will be to secure the OUT-POSTS
of power, and thus perpetuate Federal dominion
in the country, and all its parts. Insatiate as the
horse-leech in their thirst for emolument and pow-
er, they will not rest satisfied with the "loaves and
fishe,," distributed from the bounteous table of the
"White House," but are already seen seizing with
the avidity of half-famished vultures upon the
"spoils" in the respective States. Not content with
the power of consummating their anti-republican
schemes in the council-chambers at Washington,
the different members of the Confederacy are each
to be subjugated in turn, and made, nolens volens, to
"bend the knee to Baal." The Executive chair o1
Pennsylvania will constitute a prize of paramoun,
importance; and already is the enemy marshalling
itb; force' to displace the present faithful and en
lightened incumbent. However eminent his ser
vices-however irreproachable his life-however
sagacious and patriotic his policy-he must bf
marked for ostracism, because he is a Democrat!
"CJESAR OR NOTHING" is inscribed upon the
These hostile demonstrations must be met by a
corresponding energy and activity on our part
The Sampson of Democracy must not lie down in
supineness, antd permit the Delilah of Federalism
to shear him of his strength, without an effort to
preserve it! the flag of Pennsylvania must not
be struck! No, NEVER! The 4th of March
convention, it is well ascertained, will nominate by
an UNANIMOUS vote DAVID R. PORTER for
re-election. Eminenily does he deserve it at tho
hands of the people! Gloriously has he realize'
the ardent expectations of his friends! It was he,
emphatically he, who in the darkest hour of perl
SAVED THE REPUBLIC! His talismanic
touch restored the decayed remnant of publ c credit,
to life and animation! His prudent counsels-hiu
dignified and statesmanlike policy, saved the ship
of State from being sunk into the vortex which at
one time threatened to engulf her! He bade the

P ROSPECTUS FOR EXTENDING TH&e
CIRCULATION OF THE KENTUCKY
YEOMAN. That it is essentially important to the
interests of the Democracy of Kentucky to have
a newspaper devoted to the advancement of their
principles at the capital of the S-ate, we presume
will not admit of doubt. This postulation being
admitted, we will proceed to state, that to keep a
paper heie andti support it as it ought to be sup-
ported to make it useful, requires thai should
have an extensive circulation. The nui: ail source.
of profit te a newspaper establishmenit--idecrtisiting

and ravnr.t 1e-,- I- a Dmocratic paper. atha,.,'t,
for th r,:a .-n iiii tl:e business part of the com-
munity are not with it politically. Hence the ne-
cessity for a large circulation, and prompt pay-
ments on the part of its subscribers.
For several years, no effort adequate to the im-
portance of the enterprise was made to sustain a
paper here, and not until the winter of last year
did the Democrats of the State do themselves
justice in this respect Thb result of their delermi
nation then, was the establishment of this paper,
and they rallied around it, until it boasted a Pub-
scription list hardly second to the first Democratic
paperinthe State. If this hi....r'! had lasted,
the fate of the paper would have been placed be-
yond the reach of casualties. But it did not last,
and at the end of nine months the publiction of
the paper was suspended and the original proprie-
tors gave it up. Ia this emergency, time under-
signed again put it in operation, and has materially
aided to keep it in operation for nearly six months,
during which tinse, more than eight hundred tut.
scribers who had paid in advance were turnihedi
with the paper lor three months, and some of ihem
more, solely at his expense, many of whom,imme
diately thereafter, discontinued their subscriptions
He now takes charge i-f the paper, relying with
the utmost confidence that the Democracy of Ken-
ucky (with such support as he may get from
other States) will not only renumerate him for past
expendituress but that they will bestow upon hurt
a liberal support for the future. The undersigned
has recently been visited with the rengeanee ot
'he Federal national Administration, because of his
Democracy, by being dismissed from an impor-
tant official employmnent-he has the benefit of the
'criplin Pr.-iu--Ilv bestowed on all Democratic
n,-'mnr-'rii .). ,.- by the political inquisition at
Washington. Thus, being forced into olher pur-
suits, he takes up wilh pleasure, one to which
many years of his life have b-en devoted. And
he appeals with that hope and confidence which is
charac'eristic of the profession, to his political and
personal friends, into whose hinds soever this pro-
spectus may fall, to come to the aid of'his paper,
ay subscribing to it themselves, and procuring the
-ubscripiions of t eir neighbors; and on his part he
.ledges all the energies of his mind and body to
make the paper useful and in eresimnu.
In regard to the leading f features ofhis papar, he
will briefly state, that it will be itlhoroughly Demo-
cratic, as he andersiands lthe political creed of his
part,; that it will advocate the rest, ration of a
Democratic national Administration as the only
suie means of securing tie perpetuation of our
liberal system of Government; a2id for the same
reasons he will oppose toe present Administration;
and because also, it has al-o developed its determi-
nation to establish certain gm-at measures of policy,
which he believes, if carried into operation, will be
dangerous to the permanency of our political con-
ederation. Discussions and investigations will
grow out ef the positions here assumed, which
will occupy much time and space in our paper,
but will not be allowed to interfere with the proper
space devoted to news, literature, notices of the
arts and sciences, and of passing events, which
constitute so important a feature in forming good

those who comimtiled them. In connection with
his subject, we shall endeavor to find out where
justice has been done to contractors and work-
inen, and will advocate a literal lulfilment of all
contracts, at whatever expense to the State. It is
as important to the credit of the State that she
should fulfil to the strictest letter, her domestic
contracts, as it is to pay the intere t on her foreign
debts, and we insist on both being done, if the taxes
have to be raised for that purpose, two-hundred per
Another subject which will claim the attention
of this paper, is that of the general school system.
In the course of time we sha l (ndeavor to trace
the various resources which ought now to be sub-
ject to the control of the board of education, and
show to what purposes they have been applied,
and whether or not they have been prudently
As a general proposition, we are opposed to in-
corporations of every description, as constituting
monopolies, inconsistent with the spirit and gotins
of our institutions. Where they have a'ras!y
been so firmly interwoven into our domestic rela-
lions as to make it impolitic to iepeal their chatters,
we shall contend for a rigid enforceml.nt of the
provisions of such charters, and halll strenuously
oppose their multiplicalint, believing ihem to be a
gangrene upon the body politic-a ready means
ofconcentratiig wealth into masses, dangerous to
civil liberty and social happiness. The exclusive
privileges bestowed by these acts of incorporation,
are brought about by the devices of cunning capita-
lists to increase thm ir wealth at the exp-nre of the
great mass of community; aul are welt calculated
to make the powerful more potent and the weak
asd poverl)-;'tricktn movie feeble.
The legislation of thit country for years past has
had a tendency to ass-it the rich to reap all the re-
wards of the labor of the poor. Commerce and
speculation have enjoyed almost exclusvelv the
fostering care of our be'.islauve clunctcs, while the
weaker but more u eful pursui,. of agireuhlure
and the mechanic arts have been left to take care
of themselves. Without seeming to be apprised
of the consequences or tendency of their pohliey, the
Legislatures of the country have been acting upon
Mr. Webster's celebrated sentiment: "let ihe law
take care of the rich, and the rimc will take care of
the poor." Thi. is all essentially wrong. All
honorable and needful pursuits should be fostered
andprotected alike. It is time that commerce and
trade should cease to be the exclusive objects of
Legislative protection, and that they should be al-
lowed henceforth to take their chances with the
other great interests of the country.
Having thus briefly given some of the leading
features which will govern the future course of
ihis paper, we shall leave to time the further
development of its principles and policy.

There is a demand for a paper of tLi descrip-
tion, at the point indicated. The call is creditable
to the vigilance which dictates it, and shows a pro.
per appreciation of the exigency of the times. The
critical condition in which we find the great and
and permanent interests of the country, rculiing
from an extraordinary combination of men and
circumstances, all antagonist to the just and abid-
ing principles of the Democratic party, antd ihe in-
jury likely to ensue from a system of measures
which there is every reason to believe that combi-
nation is about to establish, will, we doubt nit,
insure the co-operation of the true friends of the
Constitution, in all well directed efforts to resist it.
So tar as the abilities of gentlemen high in public
confidence can be employed to effect this object,
we have an assurance of their aid, and rely upon
the Republicans of the surrounding country t'er a
c responding evidence of ther approbation and
We look upon the present as the most impor-
tant juncture for the re-establishment or final over-
throw of the Republican party, which has occur-
red since the termination of the last century. The
celebrated report of Mr. Madison of that day as-
-eried the true creed, and sustained it by an ar-
aument which has never been answered, and is
'tihe external prrly badges of finomer times need
not now be recapitulated. The intrinsic grounds
of seeparation at the first still exist; and the princi-
ples which animated and separated the Federal
irom the Republican party have not remrtted in
their operation. A fundamental difference of
,pinion in the interpretation of the Constitution,
andi as to the powers of the General Government,
severs now, as in earlier times, the latitudinaran
from his opponent. Parties in their ascendency
have fluctuated alternately; it is a fallacy, there-
fore, to say that certain points of difference being
removed, the Federal party, as such, is extinct.
I'he opposing prineip!es of construction, above re-
ferred to, are destined to remain in permanent
conflict ai long as our Government exists.
A crisis is at hand. The shadows that hang
over the face of the future must soon pass away,
and then we shall know whether JOHNTYLER of
Virginia is politically a friend or foe-whether he
will, in the hour of extremity and danger, staud up
for the Constitution and his oft-repeated and lone-
cherished principles, or yield to the influence ot
tho e who desire to use, but will never sustain
him. "He is our foe, who does his country
wrong." If he prove a friend, we must defend
him; if a foe, condemn him-as we go for mea-
,ures, not men; and we estimate and measure by
the Democatic standard of Thomas Jfferson.
In conclusion, we would direct attention to the
facilities and advantages attending this location.
Our eontiguity to the Capital of the Union, and the
residence of Mr. JEssE E. Dow (one of the Edi-
tors) being there, will enable us to give the political
news and proceedings of Congress as early as the pa-
pers printed in Washington. We are situated in the
midst of several Congressional districts of Virginia
anti Maryland, whose commerce flows hither, and
whose people are at present overwhelmed by pa-
pers of an opposite character.

MATO PILLS1-The vegetable remedy
for diseases arising from Impurities of the, Blood,
Dyspepsia, Scrofula, and all Chronic Diseases: al-
so a suhb.tute for Calome as a Cathartic n F".
ver,. and til Bilious Affections.
These Pills are no longer, if they ever were,
among those of doubtful utility. They havepassed
away from those that are daily launched upon the
tide of experiment, and now stand before the pub-
lic as high in reputation, and extensively employed
in all parts of the United States, the Canadas, and
Texa., as any medicine ever prepared for the relief
of uff,.ir i, man. They have been extensively
t rn-.ie- .l t. the Medical Faculty wherever they
have been introduced; and there are but few towns
that enrnot produce some remarkable cases of
their curative effects. The numerous certificates
which have been presented to the proprietor from
professional men and others, evince in an extraor-
dinary manner the extensive applicability of this
remedy to diseases generally. Professional men,
and those of sedentary habits, loudly applaud their
hygiene properties in obviating those evils incident
to their occupation, and the want of exercise.
Often have the cures performed by this medicine
been the subject of editorial comment in various
newspapers and journals, and it may with truth be
asserted that no medicine of the kind has ever re-
ceived testimonials of greater commendation than
are attached to this.
They are in general use as a family medicine,
and there are thousands of families who declare
they are never satisfied unless they have a supply
always on hand. They have no rival in curing
bilious diseases, dyspepsia, liver complaints, sick
headache, aundice, rheumatism, heartburn, acid
stomach, palpitation, loss of appetite, costive-
Taken either a short time before or after expo-
sure, they render the system less liable to contract,
contagious or epidemic diseases, and should be re-
sorted to by persons residing in low and marshy
situations, or when travelling or exposed to conta-
gion; also, persons attending the sick, who, by long
watching and fatigue, or exposure to the effiluvia
of the sick room, become debilitated and lose their
appetite, will find great assistance from these pills,
in renovating and purifying the system, and restor-
ing the functions to a healthy s'ate. Persona
debilitated by intense and long application to busi-
ness and study, and those also ot sedentary habits,
will derive great benefit from an occasional use of
Those who, from idiosycrancy of the constitution,
or from a previous injudicious use of Calomel, are
prevented from using that remedy, will find in these
Pills a vegetable substitute, which in most cases
will produce the desirable effects of that mineral,
without its deleterious consequences.
For that congested and deranged state of the sys-
tem which occurs in the winter and commence-
mentof spring, these Pills are particularly appli-
cable in preventing rheumatism, coughs, congestion
of the lungs, &c. and have prolonged many a life
that otherwise would have been a sacrifice to the
changes of the season.
Those persons liable to sore throat, swelling of
the glands, coughs, and other symptoms indicating
scrofula, or consumption, should tke warning in
season, and embrace a remedy which, while it is
searching out and eradicating disease, makes no
deductions from the vital powers of the system.
Recommendations from physicians in every va-
riety of climate in the United States, Texas, and
the Canadas, bear witoms to the peculiar and po-
tent effects of this medicine; in fact they are pre-
scribed by physicians generally,in preference to any
other cathartic and alterative medicine-a-nd hay-
ing acquired an unprecedented celebrity as an
INTI-DYSPEPTIC and ANTI-BILIOUS RE-
MEDY; and this reputation being folly sustained
by the high ch'racier of its testimonials, and the
increasing demand for the medicine-it is only ne-
cessary for the Proprietor to continued the caution,
that the public may not mistake other medicines
which are introduced as tomato preparations for the
true CO .110LI ND TOl1ArO PILLS.
