The birds flew frightened from the sky.
It hailed anrd snowed most srlocking.
.'Twas then a barir from Albino came,
With godly folk well freighted,

Aye, there was many a holy man,
From land of Tain O'Slaigter,
Bothrfighting Whig and, Puritan,
And crop-eared Covenanter.
They sang old hundred on tihe sea,
The fishes heard the racket,
And wondered what the noise could be,
And who was in tiliepaciket.
They sang old huhnlred on the wave;,

Because the Lord their bark did save,
And none of them got drowndred. .,..

"THE AUTOMATON CHESS FLAYER.
'The following Narrative of the life and adventures
ofthe Automaton Chess .Player, is translated from
the French Journal Le Gaarde JVationel. As a con-
nected history, of the remarkable success of this cel-
.et.rated invention, it will be read with a good deal of
Never perhaps has tr e appearance of the most
ibriliant phenomenon attracted more attention in the
learned world, than that of the Automaton Chess
TPlayer, invented by Baron Kempelen.
This automaton was first known at Presburg in
1770. .It challenged the best players tto combatfrom
'which it was always sure to come off victorious. We
,can hardly form an idea of the delight 'wish which
rthe foreign journals related the won-erec perfirmed
by this marvellous machine, nor the o -meteillraLion .'
'the flattery lavished on the inventor-I h ec.nd Pr..b -
'Imetheus, he bhad stolen ire from heaven to animate
Every possible combination of chess playing ap-
,peared to have been foreseen by his genius, so admi-
rably did the movements of the automaton accord
wit th ose of his adversary.
Public curiosity excited by such repeated descrip-
"tions, soon tn'assembled at Presburg a numerous con-
.course of amateurs, mechanics, and artists.
The reception. rpom of the Baron Kempele e was

-In this ibi..t. Ilie mvii ': lwbi; ej I dtricts aria let
ers neceawarn l'..r r il- uts"5 ..i t1h1- machine are placed.
Before the automaton commenced playing, the in-
'ventor carefully opened the.doors one after the oth-
*er, and, remarked upon the multiplicity of wheel-
work "with whidci it-was filled, showing it to be imi.
possible to place any one within.
As soon as a player .exhibited h himself, the exhibi-
tor, furnished with an iron key, wound up the ma-.
.chine with studied, gravity, when the noise of the
wheels coMd be dicnricrlev heard catching in a cog-
t hoel' hise that oi' a clock
The eyes of the automaton were then cast down on
'the chess board, and after some moments of apparent
meditation, he slowly raised his arm, directed it to'
*the piece which he iwi.rele d.( take, seized it firmly
Mbstween his fingers, rr' dt it, auad moved it to the
square-where it shouldF be placed. It was in vain to
'endeavor to disconcert him by a'wrong movement;
the slightest departure from the rules, seemed to
make Lois row darken, he shoki e his head as a sign
,of discontent, and.replacea the piece ill played to the
!square from which it came.
When it was about to announce a checked the lips
if the automaton were agitated, and there escaped a
'ioarseuosaa'd like the pronunciation of the word sbhet
'or che,which, though feebly articulated, was suffi-
cientito warn the adversary.
Thus nothing which 'could complete the illusion
;$lad been neglected; it was not long:however before
i1 he surprise of the spectator began to diminish; the
more the movementsiof t Fe automaton were execu-
ited with promptness anod facility, the more it became
-evident that they were -subjected to a directing force.
Tire inventor himself -acknoWiedged it; but what
Swas this invention so skilful, and in a game too in
'which one can.excelonly after close study and long
;practice ? Everyeye intently fixed upon Mr Kemp-
'elen, sought in vain to discover in hris looks, in his
manner, it his slightest gesture, some indication of
,the means which he employed ; sometimes he turn-
red his back to the table, and again walked away sev-
eral steps, leaving the automaton to move once or
twice -in succession without approaching it. He mo'
wed the table to any situation the spectator vi ,ibed,
thus rendering all cammsunication with the, floor or
the next room imdpossille.
The examination to which the machine had been
-submitted, removed all supposition that a child or
dwarf could be concealed : besides, how at the bot,-
'torn of this cabinet, almost hermetically closet, could
'they see and direct the play of a chess-board upon
the table abovee' *.
The mystery .remained a long time impenetrable.
Master of its secrets 'the automaton visited the capi-
tals of Germany and France; every where it was re-
'ceived with extreme curiosity, and often exited trans-
ports of surprise and admiration. Arriving in Paris
in 17'85, hlis star became dim before the celebrated
players of the Reirent 'Coffee House. But one can
without shame acknowledge themselves conquered
by the Phiilidors, and the Legals, and have yet a bril-
liant career to run. On iUs return to Berlin, the au-
tomaton challenged all the Lords of the court of the
.great Frederick, and was even admitted to the honor
'of playing with this prince, a great amateur of chsess.
In a moment of enthusiasm, Frederick, at a great ox-
pensei, became ma-ster of the machines and its secret;
'a minute account 'developed to him all the utysteries
*of this innocent magic. From that time the delusion
'vanished; the automaton dethroned, disdained, coy-
.hidden and forgotten.
It owes its resurrection, in part, to the presence of
.N'apoleon at Berlin. It was taken from its obscurity,
.recovered its former splendor, and proud of having
triumphed over the conqueror of Austerlitxr it again
roommenced its travels. London and Paris received
it with'.renewed .pleasure.
We 'will pass rapidly over some years of the ad-
wenturoess life of our hero. Accompanied by an ex-
hibitor, educated in the school of Mr Kempelen, and
always wonderfully aided by his directing power,
'without which it conid not move a step, the automa-
ton sought eagerly every occasion to distinguish
.itself, and never quitted the battle field without be-
ing able to say with Cresar: Veni, vidi, vici. At
length, preceded by an unprecedented reputation, it
,arrived at the court of Bavaria. There thIe astonish-
ment and enthusiasm which its play never failed to
'excite, were renewed. So great was the impression
it made., that prince Eugene could not resist the
temptation of becoming possessor of this chef d'meu-
vre, and 'to be initiated in thd occult science which
performed so many wonders. This wish was grati-
,ied; and the price of his initiation was fixed at
The time was now at hand when the veil was to be
.raised, 'when hie was to know this 'invisible genius,
this superior intelligence which ruled thie chless-board.
He was left alone with the exhibitor, who, for tihe.
whole explanation opened both doors of the machine
i. at onre ; the wheels had disappeared; a man, a true
chess player occupied their place. He was seated
upon a low cricket with rollers, and seemed very ill
at ease. We can judge what at this eight was the
disenchantment of the new purchaser. The solution
of the principal problem was reduced to a mere jug-
gler's trick. These levers, these cog wheels, this ey-
linder were but thin paper cuttings, placed on parti-
tions and removed at will.
Whilst the examination of the interior mechanism
took place, as the doors only opened one after, ano-
ther, the player wa s concealed in the the back of tie
automaton, his limbs folded under himnr, sometimes
leaning to the oppose deite side with his head down and
his hands before himr; ie thus by turns hid himself
as the doors opened alternately. One or two repeti-
tions were sufficient to habituate him to this exsrcise,
and to teach him first to turn tIre crank,for directing
the arm of the automaton, then to put in motion the
elastic spring which was to move the fingers; and last,
to pull the cord that the automaton might give utter-
ance to the word check.
The player is lighted in his box by a taper, and has
before himn a chess-board on which all the squares are
numbered: another chess-board likewise numbered,
is placed in the ceiling above his head, and forms tIhe
reverse of that upon which the automaton plays. The
piece, strongly magnetised -it r lir L-.r by theirgat-
traction open some little traps-adapted to each square
of this back board. The player attentive' to the rise
and fall of these traps, knows precisely the move
played by his adversary; he immnedately repeats this
move 'upon his own chess-board ; plays isi own move
and causes it afterwards to be done by the automa-
The ingenious me ins invented to establish a con-
nection between the exteriaor and interior of tie ma-s
chine alone, fixed the attention of the prince; perhaps
he found he had paid too dear for the secret. ,He said
nothing, and even amused himself awhile in the pre.
sence ofsoume of his intimate friends in playing the
part of exhibitor. But that he might enjoy his know-
ledge for a length of time, it was necdssary that a.
skillful player should be employed which would have
soon opened all eyes and given a key to the enigma.
The prince found himself reduced to this alteirna-
tive; either to employ this skillful player or again to
condemn thie automaton to obscurity. He was un-
certain what part to take, when Mr M-e-1, that
skillful mechanist, who separated himself with regret
from his beloved pupil, asked the favor, to continue
the exhibition of its brilliant talents, engaging to pay
pthe interest'of the sum disbursed. This proposition
was accepted : and Mr M-e-l left Bavaria and exhi-
bited then automaton with great success. He was re-
ceived inFrance and England like an old acquain-
tance of whom awe just retain a recollection; it seem-
ed to have renewed its youth; although the reign of
sorcerers had passed away, it still possessed the pow-
er to fascinate every eye ; in nore simple language,
it always astonished by thea ingenuity of its machine-
ry, and the skill of its concealed player. To one or
two celebrated players was confided the internal di-
Srection of the automaton; MrA B-t in Paris, and Mr
L-w-s in London, made it triumph without diffi-
culty over all who presented themselves for comn bat;
when MrM-e-1 formed the pran dternaie w'n on the
curiosity ofseveral cities in Ln ,i '-, Scatlin-id and
Holland,wahere th'automaton had never been. To
accomplish that design, it was necessary to have the
assistance of a travelling companion pwho had a su-
perior knowledge of chess ; he proposed this plan to a
AMr M. a very amiable ando lively m'an, whoe consent-
ed to accompany him, and become his associate in the
benefits of the enterprise.
The most complete success signalized the course of'
ourtravelers. Wherever they pitched their tents,
spectators gathered in crowds to witness the combat.
The automaton, like a chevalier in a tournament,
offered to his antagonist the advantages of arms arnd
ground, that is to say, in the language of chess, the
paw'n oand firstmove, notwithstanding .which hel woa'

a while however, Mr M-e-1 owed the player a
large sum of which under different pretexts, he delay-
ed the payment from week to week and month to
month. A year thus passed avay, and Mr M-ee-1.
refused to settle the account, when M-t found an
infallible means to decide it.
The automaton was then at Amsterdam; the King
-of 'Holland had early in the morning engaged a
fourths part of the hall and paid for it a sum in
florinr! equivalent to 3.000 francs; Mr M-e-l ran to
.announce this news to his associate.. They break-
ifasted gaily together; Mr M-e-1 hastened to make
-the necessary preparations to receive the King; the
assembly were to meet at half past twelve; twelve
struck, and the player who should liar. lcri in the
ndachine is not yet i t his post; -Mr b -A--i, out of
patience,,'went to' inquire the-cause of this delay.
What is his astonishment to find Mr M-t in bed,
and trembling as with ant ague fit. What do I see?
What, is the matter? I have a fever. What do you
say? you were well enough an hour since. Yes, it
is a thunder stroke. The King will come. He will
go a-way again. What shall,.1 say to him'? That the
automaton hev's a fever. A truce to, your jokes. It is
no laughing matter. The, receipts were .never bet-
ter. Return the money. I pray you get up. Impose
sitnle. I will go call a physician. Useless. Is there
then no meaois of preventing this fever? Yes; one
on!ss-it is to pay moe tre' 1,500 francs you owe me.
Well be it so this evening. JVo-no-this moment.
Mr M-e-l seeing no other alternative went for thae
money. The cure was wonderful; the automaton
never played better. The King did not play, only
he advised his minister of war, whion played for him.
The coalition were completely beaten; but the, defeat
was laid entirely to the account of the responsible
iThe expedition of our travelers had scarcely ter-
minated, when Mr 86I-e-l engaged a player to go
with himn to A.meri.ca. A young man, a native of

Coffee House, was this timecosen fo co irconfidant.

ing anecdote, it is said, ,determined Mr M-e-l to
give this advice to 1. hose he initiated. .
In some of his 00 rly travels, he was at a German
city, where was a c celebrated juggler, a pupil of the
Coinus, and Pinotta, giving exhibitions.
The automatoin soon eclipsed thie juggler, who
piqued, and. jealetus, went to see his rival; guessed
the secret, and aidedi by a confederate, all of a send;
den cried "fire." VWe can judge the alarm of thest
spectators; the atutni nation in his fright pushed his

could be ascertained, 'was. supposed .to be 340,000,.

three rules, for avoiding those distempers which usu-

adhered. The first was, to study always standing;
the second, never to study in a window; the third,
never to go'to bed i.vith his feet cold.
THURSDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 16, 1837.
MR. WISE'S COMMITTEE OF INVESTIGA-
It will be recollected thatearly in the present session
of Congress, Mr Wise introduced a resolution to re-
fer to a Select Committee that portion of the Presi-
dent's Message relating to the condition of the Exec-
utive Departments, the ability and integrity with
which they have been conducted, the causes of com-
plaint from any quarter at the manner in which they
have fulfilled the objects of their creation, &r. &c.
After dallying with this resolution in such a way,
and deferring acting upon it for such a length of time,
as indicated upon the side of the administration par-
ty, any thing rather than a willingness to have an in-
vestigation instituted to ascertain whether or not
abuses existed or had been practised, finding thatthe
mover was no longer particularly desirous that a
'committee should be appointed, (knowing full well
that the accumulation of other business, and the
shortness of the period that could be devoted to the
rheimsle, rwoil not alldpr of s'., iset 'in : i'ra an investi-
gation being made as was iJ':iinWt-, inl.' pattry find-
ing this, at length assented tothe resolution ; and Mr
Wise, voting' against it, the administration presses
from one end of the land to the other opened the
flood gates of wrath against him.
He was: charged with makTing foul aspersions
against the Government,-being afraid to meet his
own proposition,-the purity, correctness and up-
rightness of the Administration were trumpeted forth
ane'-ar terrible blast was blown against the corrup-
tion, the barefaced assumptions, the dishonest and
cowardly attacks of the movers, &c. &c.
But cail" ihisiundmii'.g i- obstacles thrown in Mr.
Wise's way, he has manifested a determination to
do all in his power, under the existing circumstances,
to ferret out and 'expose to the country, some of the
many gross abuses that have been going on under
the present administration. And in what way has
he been met by those in power, all of whom profess
to be,and are proclaimed as, real Sinons PUres, anx-
ious that an investigation should be had, in order
that their incorruptibility and orrp-tinr' might be
manifested to the world? The Presidenat, when ad-
dressed by the Committee, denies their right to make
there investigation; declares their proceedings' incon-
stitutional ; and in reference to the several Depart-
ments, he says:
The heeeads of Departments may answer such a re-
quest hs they please, PROVIDED they do not withdraw
their own time and that i of the officers inder their
direction from the public business, to the injury there-
qf. To tihate business I shall direct them to devote
themselves, in preference to any illegal and uncon-
stitutional calls for information, np matter from whate
source they may come, or however anxious they may
be to- meet it." And then the General asserts that
ie, for himself, shall, repel all such atrerpts, as he
"would the establishment of a Spanish Inquisition."
"Like master, like man. The immaculate eu-
ben M. Whitney, when Asummoned before the Com-
mittee, periemptorilyrIrefusees to attend.
Even when individuals, who are summoned, do
appear, they are so hedged in by the party majority
of the Committee, that they are not allowed to tell.
"the whole truth;" and any question propounded by
thie iMsis ,nhp matter, what may be its importance.
is suppressed it it do not suit ie vieis and feelings-
of the administration members.
Still.notfvithstanding the powerful influence in op-
eration, to prevent any exposure being made, we
think sufficient has already transpired to convince
every impartial observer, that corruption must have
gained a firm footing, when individuals connected
directly or indirectly with the ruling power, Atrc
resist and spurne the summons of those officially au-
thorised, to issue .nt.
It appears by the subjoined article in the Baltimore
Patriot, that the conductors of that paper keep them-
selves informed upon the subject ;of the boundary
line between this State and Massachusetts. We can-
ot however acknowledge the correctness of what is
termed p the evident intention" of our citizens in
prosecuting our claims to the disputed land. We do
not believe that party views or feelings have had, at
least in times past, anything to do 'with the matter;
although should a decision be given in favor of Rhlode
Island, unquestionably, the party at the time in pow-
er, will be advantaged by it. From the beginning we
contended for what was deemed our rights, arid it is
hoped that we-may persevere unto the end-
"The Boston Daily Advertiser, speaking of the case
of Rhode Island vs Mlassachnusetts, in the Supreme
Court oftdie United States, says it relates to a. ques-
tion of boundary, involving a smalsel strip of territo-
ry on the northern border of Rhode Island.'
The Massachusetts editor, who has some reputa-
tioun for map-making, should beh better informed.-
Theo small strip' contains about 80 square miles,
with a population of five thousand souls and half
million of taxable property-and a claim is prosecuted
by Rhode Island with the evident intention of mpain-
taiing by this annexation to her territory, of one
member to Congress, after the ensuing census of
It has been rumored, within a few day past that
the Hon., George Poindexter, contrary to the fond
anticipations of his friends, lias sunk underi'the af-
fects of the accidental injury received some months
since. This however 'needs confirmation, inasmruch
as the latest authentic intelligence from Natcbez, not
only announces that, re was rapidly convalescing, but
tijrat he cotstemplate'd leaving soon for Lourisuille.
LATE FROM FLORIDA.
A slip from the Savannah Georgian of Feb. 2, con-
tains information from Jacksonville, Florida, to Jan.
There has, as usual, nothing of moment occurred
except impotent attenipts of Gel's, Jesup and his
forces to follow up the Indian trails ; while the Sem-
inoles on the 'other hand, are murdering and depre-
dating in scattered parties that fall suddenly upon
the unsuspecting planters,and tisen are off with their
booty and scalps, evading entirely the vigilanse of
the large regular anid militia force in constant and
active operations in tilat peninsula.
Col. Warren arrived at Jacicsonville, brings infor-
mation from Fort Drano that Gen. Jesup was follow-
ing up a-supposed trail of Indians, towards the Wa-
cassassa country. The Indians are again, as we have
so often been told before, dispersed in small portions
through tile country.
On Jan. 13th, Gen. Jesup, with the Alabamians,
captured a straggling Seminole on the west side of
tile Witialacoochee, while the Indian was in the act
of sitinning a beef. He stated tisat he belonged to a
town on that side of the river, containing about 1.00
Indians, warriors, "women and children, who are do-
sirous of surrendering, but were afraid of being kill-
ed. Major Graham with 200 men, was sent under
guidance of the Indian to search for the town. The
Indian further stated that all Osceola's warriors but
about fifty, have left him.
A partly of about 110 men arrived at Fort Drane,
Jan. 18th, to proceed against Alligator's tribe on the
Ochlawalia, thence around Orange Lake, scouring
the country between the Lake and St. Johns river to
Black Creek.. I
The body of Mr S. Rocks who has been missing
since the 18th,while returning to Black Creek from
an escort of a train of wagons, was found dead, scal-
ped and plundered alongside the body of his horse,
near where Dell's negroes were shot.
On the 24th January, Lieut. J. M. Smiley, of Capt
Reed's Company, stationed at the Mineral Springs,
was shot near 'the house of his father-in-law, Mr
Sykes, with whom he lived. The house is five miles
from the springs, on the road to Livingston's ferry
on the Suwannee river. He was 150 yards from the
house cutting wood while ise was shot. Three balls
penetrated him, one in the head, one in the body, and
the third in the arm, which instantly 'killed'him.-
The Indians thenscalped him, and began to fire on
Mr Sykces' house, where Mr J. hearing their yells
and shots, had barred himself in, and wi.h7 guns he
had with him made a chivalrous defence against25 to
50 Indians, from 3 P. M, to dark. He believes from
traces of blood on the bush2s several of the Indians
were killed-one was found shot through the heart.
The house wasriddled w ith bullets. Mr Sykes is
sure he saw a white mania blue clothes, with a white
hat, among the Indian party !
In Gen. Jesup's despatches to the War Depart-
ment, dated' Camp Izard, Jan 17, and Fort Armstrong,
Jan. 21, re says he had thoroughly swept the swamps
on tie north side of then Withilacoochee from Fbrt
Armstror.. ai Dad;-'s bitil, ground, to Camp Izard.
Lt. Col. u'-.,ter. %ith, 0 xderi'-hmentliad moved down
the soith ild- I't' Fr.,'i Clinch He says :
The result iof ptuhr operations has been the capture
of hisv .,'t, n:, tir"aes'q e in three Indians, and the posi-
tive lhn'.l,dri;e thal here are no Indians on this ri-
ver, esx.\eplt iiill p s tw vho are flying through Land
hiding in ihe swaemps, with no other mean aof sub-
sistence than roots, palmetto cabbage, and occasuon-
ally indifferent beef."
Lt. Col. Foster had subsequently gone with 400 re-
gulars and the Georgia volunteers and IrM Indian'
warriors, to a svamp 30 mile south of Fort Clinch,
in pursuit of the Tallahassee and Ogeechee Indians.
Major McClintock garrisons Fort Drane with 80
troops. Expeditions were to be sent to Volusia, and
Gen. J. was going himself against Micanopy, princi-
pal chief of the Seminoles, on the head of the Ockla-
wahia. There are nosw two forts and-tw o bridges fin-
ished on the Withlacoochee.
All accounts niconrcur be says in the opinion that
the IndJians have retired to the swamps of tihe St.
John's and Ocklawaha Rivers. On the 22d Jan. Gen.
J. was to march for Hapapka, near the' head of Ocirk-
lawahpI, where Micanopy, JumpR r, A1itr, and
other chiefs are supposed to trna'o, b. r.r.niy.nd, their,
forces. The General fears tihey 1'r na-s -t Mci toacne
tion, but disperse; Mbut he is quite moderate now in
the measure ofthe results which he har s acconmplish-
ed or expects to% achieve.
"The troops have been actively employed, but we
have accomplished little, except obtaining a knowl-

creased or diminished secretion of tie BILE.
So well'is.this understood, that it is common for persons to
say when they feel unwell, that they are bilious, meaning that
they have too much .bile in the stomach. Ou the other hand,
when the flow of bile is diminished, thie process of digestion is'
imperfectly performed, tie patient becomes weak and emacia-
'ted, because 'nourishment contained in the food taken into the
stomach is not properly extracted, and the food is ejected in a
crude state. Dr. Kingley is confident that the famous Hygean
Theory, so called, that imtpurity of the blood is thie cause of all
diseases,' is a great'absurdity. Every onewho reflects upon the
subject a moment, -ill perceive that impurity of tIe blood is a
secondary,not a primary complaint-the effect and not the cause
of disease. When thie functions of the liver are deranged,and
the flow of bile increased, it is often taken up by the absorbent
vessels and carried into the circulation, and becomes mingled
with the blood as in Jaundice, when the patient shows it in his
countenance. Now this impurity of the blood is caused by an
increase flow of bile, and to remedy it you must correct the se-
cretion of the liver, and-restore it to a healthy state.
Dr. Kingley has spent much time in experimenting with dif-
ferent vegetable medicines, for diseases of the liver; and now
offers.his Universal Family Pills, asthe best, most convenient,
and cheapest medicine that can be prepared for general use,and
in offering them to the public lie is actuated more by tencvuolent
than ))amr7niasi motives,as the price of the medicine will show.
Dr. Kingley flatters himselfthat his long experimenting with
vegetable medicines lias enabled him to discover the true and
only substitute answering all the purpose of mercurials with-
out any of their attendant evils. One great quality of his Fa-
mily Pills is that they have the alternative principle combined
with their cathartic, or operative quality, so that they not only
cleanse the stomach and bowels by purging, but they regulate
ihe liver, change the morbid secretions,, strengthen the "diges-
tive organs, purify the blood, invigorate the circulation, and
give tone afid energy to the nervous system. ,
They are mild a'nd pleasant in their operation, and convey
almost immediate conviction of their utility from tIhe first dose.
They can be taken with safety by persons of any age ; and the
feeble, the infirm, the nervous, and delicate, are strengthened
by their operation, because they clear the system of bad hu-
mors, quiet nervous irritabilities and restlessness from whatever
source, and invariably produce sound'sleep. '
The Family Pilis are a sure remedy for Jaundice, Sick and
Nervous Headache, Dyspepsia, Costiveness, Sickness of the
Stomach, Heartburn, all Billious Coomplaints, Fevers of all
kinds, and if' taken at the commencement will invariably check
their progress,and save thie patient from a protracted and dan
gerous sickness. They are invaluable in Nervous and Hypo-
chondriscal Affections, Loss 'of Appetite, and all complaints to
which Females alone are subject. They operate as'a mild and
speedy puurge, arid tire a sate and certain remedy for Worms in
Since I have introduced my Univwrsal Family Pills to the
public, I have received numerous certificates of their superior
efficacy i curing diseases ; also, many letters from respectable
Physicians, whlohave used thieni'in their practice with the best
I niight publish a small volume of certificates, but consider it

.A long time noticed the base impositions that are practiced
upon the public by multitudes in the manufacture of an article
under the head of BULLARD'S GENUINE OIL SOAP, and

deem it my duty tormake the follow igstatomrnts: Thie artile
manufactured by me is genuine, and ever mas been. I gave it
tihe name of Oil Sap, and wrote hbe label which was soon after

might often resort for solace, and refreshment, and

domestic pursuits,which sternly forbids an approach.
We have, it is true, no titled aristocracy ; and pro-
perty does not, as in the land of our forefathers, ac-

there is Scarcely a city, a town, or a village in this
land, where some could not be found, blessed with
every requisite but the disposition', to acquire a gen-
uine relish for the Fine Arts. Nay, more--in our lar-
ger cities, all of which boast their commercial prospe-
rity, and' some their Athenian refinement, why
should not the masters of the pencil and the chisel
be employed to furnish for the private mansion ith:.-
precious decorations; which alone are secure I..:,,",
the capricious despotism of fashion ? By thus ex-
pending some portion of their suberabundant wealth,
the opulent would drink deeply of those finer joys
which are perversely left unapproached by the indo-
lent, the voluptuous, and the profligate. Thus, too,
would they gather around themselves 'almost inex-
ihaustable means'of winning others fro.m'sordid pur-
suits,+to a contemplation of the 'imperishable glories
of Genius and'Art.
RIOT is NEW YoR..i-We copy to-day an account
of a serious and disgraceful riot which took place in
New York on Monday afternoon and. evening, and
must say that we are'asbonished that the nimab was

We are, full apt, in such cases, t9 deprecate What,
perhaps, through want of proper ii,..rir..t'r, we
consider the supineness of those in power; or rather
"'of those who should be in power. But after making
all reasonable allowances, it does appear to us that
there must be some defect in the police.

New York, Feb. 10, 1837.
As might be expected, 'language so well calculate(
to arouse the worst passions of the worst part of tin
populace of a large city, occasioned the asseinblag(
in tihe Park yesterday afternoon of a great number o
people, estimated at from 5000 --. imi ,n number.-
A self constituted Cummitted liern risr. their ap
pearance in front of the City Hall, among whom ALEX
MIGo, ir. appeared most conspicuous. 'He made
speech, the chief topics of which, as. far as could' bi
heard, were the Currency, Banking, and finally higl
Rents and high Prices. Another orator followed
whose name we could not learn. Arsong other lan
miuage lie used the following: "Fellow-citizens,'El
Hart has now in his store fifty-three thousand bam-eli
of' flour. Let usgo down peaceably and ask him te
let us have it at' $10, it lie don't we'll (after 'a long
pause) go peaceably away." This speech- was tre.
mendously cheered, and several orators followed, It
one of the intervals, Alexander Min', Jr. offered
set of resolutions, of Which we could only gather' thi
sense of one, which was to the effect,'that a memori.
al should be sent to thfe Legislature to prohibit thu is.
sue of all notes under 'one hundred dollars. At the
close of the speechifying, some of the most zea-lotin
in attendance, lifted Mr .Ming on their shoulders ant
carried him to Tammany Hall. The meeting con-
sisted chiefly of foreigners, many of whom could not
speak English. Certainly not one third were Ame-
rican citizens, and those chiefly apparently attractec
there by curiosity.
" Having left Mr Ming at Tammany Hall; large
numbers poured down Bruuadway, and after making
one or two dceurs reached the store of Mr Eli Hart
in Washington street near Vesey street. This buil
ding has three large doors for the passage of goods tb
the warehouse, and a counting lsouse with anotlhem
door, adjoining.: The mob had forced open the mid-
dle store door before our reporter reached the spot
On perceiving their proceedings, the clerks in the
eountin"s house closed the iron shutters ofthe
windows. About twenty-five barrels of flour were
then rolled out of the store, their heads knock-
ed in, and the contents scattered about the street.-
At this time a number of the-friends of Mr Hart and
a posse of police officers arrived on the spot, but they
had encountered on their way in Dey street a part ol
the mob, who assailed them, and took away the offi-
cers"' staffs,'breakling them over their persons. The
officers, notwithstanding, succeeded in clearing the
store of the rioters, and appeared sufficiently strong
to prevent the entrance of any more through thIe only
The mob were thus keptat bay for about twenty
minutes, during which time the Mayor arrived atnd
addressed them, remonstrating 'with them on the folly
of their conduct. He was struck several times and
pelted with flour'and finally compelled to desist and
retire. The rioters hiavinu received a large addition
to their numbers, now seized thestore door which had
been torn off'its hinges and with'it battered down
the remaining doors and forced open the window
shutters, the persons inside being only able to guard
one door. A scenic of havoc and confusion ensued.
The people scattered themselves about the lower
floor and counting- house, and continued for one hour
rolling out barrels offlour and :, 11 .bI hags of
wheat-the contents of which H in. ** iiato the
street. The desks, papers, and every thing in the

,'h'! ,_" Ali halfhuur v.i '- n- d.- '"I in dhis'.way..
I r ..' r., dark' and about .:...l., .. lr-i a strong
body of police officers arrived, and in a few minutes
dispersed the whole. Having procured lights, the
police then searched the second story, but only.found
two rioters there, who jumped out of the window
and were caught by the officers below.
The mob then crossed over to the East River, and
commenced an attack on the store of A. B. Meech &
Co. where they destroyed about! I I, 'li. barrels
offlour. They then-marched off, 'cri r. n,.-. of the
ringleaders on their shoulders to the store of Messrs.
Herrick's, in Coenties slip; but here they were en-
countered by the police-to whose aid the citizens
were turning out from all' quarters-driven off, and
Between thirty and forty persons were arrested
and brought up. in the course of the evening to the
police office, by the officers and marshals. Among
them were James Champan. who was fully identified
as being one of the ringleaders, and a boy named
James Roach, who had been on the sill of the win-
dow of Mr Hart's store, crying out, "Here goes flour
at $8 a barrel," throwing some in the street at the
same time. They will all be brought up for exami-
nation to-morrow. Soon after 8 o'clock, a large
number of the military, portions of the 27th Regi-
ment, were assembled in the Hall, and were march-
ed down to the scene.of action, and by nine o'clock,
nothing of the mob remained.
The street in front of Mr Hart's store was literal-
ly strewed with flour and wheat to the depth of one
foot and his loss will probably exceed $10,000.-
Swiss beggar women were seen in numbers running
away with their aprons filled with flour, and the men.
in the n-eighborhood seemed almostall to have their
coats covered with it.
Our remarks will be short on this disgraceful oc-
currence. It is not the actors in it-poor ignorant
deluded wretches-that are to blame, so much as the
instigators, who. knowing better-knowing that the
r meeting could nt answer the purposes for which it
was ostensibly called, still devised it solely to give
themselves political consequences.
We are astonished that the civil authorities with
the call of this nieeting before them, had not a'suffi-
Scient police force or the military, ready to prevent
the consequences which it was probable would fol-
7 low it. Twenty-five armed..men could at any mo-
ment have dispersed the whole'mob.
Though mobs of this kind may for. a short time
commit outrages, yet with the feeling we yesterday
saw evinced by our citizens we are satisfied they
Swill never be allowed to perpetrate 4ernm long. It
was gratifying to observe the large number who
spontaneously hastened to the scene of action armed,
determined to put down quickly the disturbers of the
public peace. .

SENATE-SATURDAY, Feb. 11.
Mr Grundy, from the Joint Committee.appointed
to wait on Richard M. Johnson to notify him of his
election to be Vice President of the .United States,
reported a letter from Richard M. Johnson, in which
he expressed his gratitude, heightened by the fact
that the decision of the Senate 7had been in confor-
mity with the votes of a majority of the States, and
a moiety of the electoral college. He then apologis-
es for his inexperience as a presiding officer, having
never even temporarily presided over a legislative
body, solicits indulgence, and promises impartiality.
Mr Davis, from the Committee on Commerce re-
ported a bill to authorize the President of the' United
States to cause a public vessel to cruise on the coast
in tle winter season, for the relief of distressed navi-
gators, which was read and ordered to a second read-
ing, and the report was ordered to be printed. -
The bill to cede to the new states the'public lands
within their limits, on certain conditions, being ta-
ken up on the question of its second reading.
Mr Hubbard expressed a hope that the second read-
ing would not be pressed at this time, and asked for-
the yeas and nays, which were ordered. '
Nfr Buchanan rose and referred. to the near ap-
proach of the close of the session, and the impossibil-
ity of getting through the important legislative busi-
ness already before Congress. He considered this
bill to be an,apple of discord thrown into the Senate
at this time, the effect of which had already been
to prevent the action of the Senate on the Army Bill
to-day, as was intended. He did not i ie.w this bill a;
an equitable one. a_'d he would as soon put his h-mnds
into the pockets of his constituents, as vote to givee
away the lands in the manner proposed by ile Bill.

purposes, being taken up and read.a third time, and
the question being on its passage, at the request .of
Mr Crittenden, some brief explanations were made
by Mr Benton.
SMr Southard then made some remarks, signifying
that he should vote against the bill, because, howev-
,er proper the system of national defence which re-
quired these works was in 1819, now that the im-
provement of the age had rendered the defence of
the country so much more easy than it ever was be-
fore. At any rate .he would vote no appropriation
unless he had proper information to convince him of
its necessity. He moved to lay the bill on the table,

Mr Thomas, from the Joint Committee appointed

consent of the House to offer the following preamble
Whereas, the vote of the House taken, the 9th

Mr Ingersoll, of Penn., asked that the following
resolution might be read, it being his wish to offer it
as a modification of Mr Taylor's resolution :
The Hon. John Q. Adams having inquired of the
Speaker whether it would be in order for him to pre-
senta petition purporting to be from certain slaves,

the said petition without disregarding its own digni-
ty, the rights of a large ('.lass of citiZens of the South

Mr Taylor accepted this as a modification:
Mr Potts of Penn., objected to the reception of the
resolution at this time.'
Mr Cambreleng moved to suspend the rule, on
which motion Mr A. Mann called for the yeas and
After some desultory con versation, Mr Taylor con-

made last e, enin_ by Mi" Boon, pf Ind. to reconsider
the vote by which the first of the two resolutions of-
fered in the case ofMr Adams, had been adopted; and
which resolution is as follows:-
"Resolved, That any member who shall hereafter
present any petition from thie slaves of this Union,
ought to be considered as regardless of the feelings of
this House, the rights of the Southern States, and
unfriendly to the Union."
And the House suspended the rule.
Mr Laile called for the yeas and nays on the mo-
tion to reconsider, which were ordered.
Mr Ashley of Missouri,' and Mr Underwood of
Ken., addressed the House at some length in favor
of reconsideration, and assigned reasons why they
had voted against the adoption of the resolution, be-
cause it was one of denunciation, and not because
they differed with those who voted in favor of its
passage, and who affirmed that slaves had no right
to petition Congress. Both gentlemen repudiated
such a doctrine and Mr Underwood gave notice of
his intention, if the vote was reconsidered, to. offer
the following resolution for the consideration of the

Mr Taylor then moved to strike out all after the

the members of the House on the right of the slave
to petition. The House was now to be drawn off
from the original proposition to a separate and inde-

such a measure; nor, so long as that negative vote

Mr Ingersoll said he had offered this amendment
in a pure spirit of peace and' tranquillity, and in the
hope that it might be instrumental in restoring tran-
quillity to the country.'
Mr Vanderpool denied that the negative vote on
the resolution was a fair exposition of the opinions of
the majority of the .members of the House on the&
right of slaves to petition Congress. Many gentle-
men had voted against it, because they supposed it
implied censure:on the gentleman from Massachu-
setts. He felt sure that if the question was properly'
presented there were few men in this House whob
would, vote in favor of the proposition that slaves hada
a right to petition. He condemned the course
which had been adopted by the member from the
south, as calculated at least not to thin the ranks of
the abolitionists. The most bold and denunciatory
measures were not always the wisest or the most
Mr Johnson of. Louisiana,. said lie could not be-

Mr Johnson then asked Mr Ingersoll to accept the
amendment as a modification to the end of his amend-
Mr Anthony, of Penn. hoped his colleague would
not accept the modification. The House had heard
too much about endangering the union. -
Mr Ingersoll refused to accept it; but Mr I. again
modified his resolution [as will appear hereafter.]
Mr Patton, of Virginia, denied that the resolution

the q,-nrleirian from Masi H h. pi-d the- resolution
w.:.uii b- adhered to, but if'it co.-Id not he was wil-
ling to vote for the strongest substitute which the
House would give. He intimated his intention.to of-
fer at a proper time, as a distinct and independent-
proposition, a resolution (to precede the one now
pending)" that the right of petition does not belong
to the slaves of this union, and that no petition from
them can be received by this House without deroga-
tion from the righrs f'i the slia'e holding states, and
endangering the intlgr.ly ot the union."
Mr Sutherland said, he had vcte-d a2inst the res.:.-
lution, because it contained a ccnsure on ir.- Hon.
mndmber from Mass. for having simply asked direc-
tionfrom the Chair in relation to the petition; and he
(Mr S.) would vote against such a resolution to the
last day of his life. Whenever the question onf the
:right of the slave to petition came properly' up, he
would meet it face to face. He believed that when-
-ever that question was put, only a very few membeisI
would be.found to vote for it. He would prefer that'
the question should be taken directly on the reception
-of the petition, because he believed it would be re-
jected by a vote nearly if not altogether unanimous.
He deprecated the strong and irrecorneiliiatln co..ursem
taken by gentlemen from the South, and believed it
-tended only to increase thd numbers of the Abolition-
ists. I I
.11r By-n.:.m, of N. C. hoped the House would pro-
'ceed to action on the subject, because he understood
'that the individual ordered to be brought to the Bar
-of the House was now in custody, and either directly
-or indirectly in prison. He hoped, the House would
-come to a declaration of their opinion promptly. :
After some further debate, Mr Howard of. Mary-
land moved (the question being one of privilege) that
-the, vote of yesterday, by which the resolution.direct-
ing Reuben M. Whitney to be brought to the bar of
"the house had been adopted, should be reconsidered.
The Speaker said the motion would be entered on
the journal, and Mr H. said he would give his rea-
sons for the motion when the question before the
House should be disposed of. '
After some remarks from Messrs. Bouldin, W.
Thompson and Lane;
Mr Wise said, he was not about to discuss the qpes-
tion of slavery in this House, 'he had done with the
question here, but he' contended that the Preamble to
the resolution ought to set forth the true state of the
case which would be, that the inquiry had been made
of the Spiaker, and the Speaker hiadd tr'eerrd tli-
question to the decision of the House.
[A modification to this effect was subsequently
Mr Taylor then accepted Mr Ingersoll's resolution,
as a modification of his own.. I '
Mr Adams offered two amendments, one of which
was the following: "Resolved, That the said paper
[alluding to the petition] as stated by the member
from Massachusetts is not within the order of the
House," [that is, within the meaning of the resolu-
tion laying on the'table all papers.relating to slave-
Mr A. then addressed the House for an hour and a
half, in relation to the various propositions which had
been submitted, and none of which, he contended,
had met the question which he originally propound-
ed to the Speaker., He'denied that any responsibili-
ty lay on him, by reason of the five days mist valu-
able time which had been consumed in this matir,
was the abstract proposition that a slave, as a human
being, might ask for favor, protection or mercy as
matter of favor, if it were in the power of the House
to grant the prayer; and of this the House must be
the judge. '
Ie said he should not now offer to present the pe-
tition, nor ask that the question hlie had raised might
be decided upon it ; because he had reason to believe
that the petition was the forgery of a slave-holder, or
a master. The gentleman from S. C. said it was a
hoax; if it were so, let the hoax and its results be
on the head of him who got it up.
Mr Taylor then modified his resolution by adding

,Mr W. Thompson accepted the modified resolu-
tions of Mr Taylor and Mr Ingersoll, as a substitute

lor was ordered now to be put.

within the order of the House on the 18th of Janua- t
ry, and the said paper not having been received by,
the Speaker, he stated that in a case so extraordina-
ry and novel, he would take the advice and counsel 1
of the House. t

For thie Journal.
CAMBRIDGE, Feb. 1, 1837.
Dear Sir: I perceive in the Providence Daily
Journal, of the 28th ult, an editorial article in refer-
ence to which I would make a few remarks. It re-
lated to Duddington and the Gaspee, an historical
incident of more importance than that of our Lex-
ington, because anterior to it, and indicative of more
I would here ask who was the captain of the packet
who, in coming from Newport, so gallantly wore his
colors, notwithstanding the fire of the Gaspee, from
before she weighed anchor, or slipped her cable, and
stood after her, until he stuck her so judiciously
aground on the very edge of that invisible point,
since called'" Gaspee Point ?" He must hive been
a clever fellow in both senses of the word, and de-
serves special remembrance and honorable record.-
The commander of the packet pressed his fragile ves-
sel on steadily, in defiance of Duddington, who, ev-
ery now and then, yawed his vessel to give her a
shot, and ultimately managed so nicely as'just to
shave the shallpw point of land, and then .luffed in
shore, making a judicious curve, while the less saga-
cious Briton kept a strait course to destruction.-
That captain ought to have his name recorded.
Great injustice is often done during war in not du-
ly attending to the mind-the cool and determined
judgment of a single individual.. It is not always he
who first enters a breach, or leads a forlorn hope,
that has the most credit-a lion, a dog, or a savage
Indian, may, according to the strength of his frame,
and impetuous spirit, surpass the all-ruling mind of
a hero. Your Barton both planned and executed a
brilliant deed. Benedict Arnold did very gallantly,
half as much. Gen. Green often did more. Capt.
Ap. Jones fought like aw superior being on the Lake
Pont Chatrain-if I mistake not [?] before he surren-
dered his gun boats, and nothing could surpass the
brave conduct of our forces that defended New Or-
leans on the 8th of January-yetit was one n;nd Lhat
planned and directed the whole.
Shaispeare had a clear idea of the very-essence of
heroism, when he says,

defeated the British before New Orleans-and so of

10th day of September.
It is an important fact, who first stepped forth, on
hearing that the Gaspee was aground, and oferedi
himself, and collected others to go down in-two row-
boats, to destroy her. There was genuine' heroism
in Ephraim B.... when he said to John. Brown-
"If Ifall, see that my wife and children 's taken care

more ? He offered his life, as did the rest of thevol-
unteers. How far short is their merit ofthat of Le-

to this day.
1 remember theperson of Duddington. JIe was a
stout, surly looking man, and seldom or ever walked
the streets of Nqwport alone, or unaccompanied with
a large dog; he was considered .a very formidable
man, and I have an idea- that he was not a sociable
visitant in the best company in Newport, as I never
saw him at Dr. Halliburtonws (with whom I studied
physic) at whose hospitable table British officers were
always welcome, and who visited him when he lay
wounded on the banks ofyour river. 1 always in-
derstood that he was thought to have been shot by a
pistol; and that the ball did not penetrate.the abdo-
men, but only the cellular membrane, and to theper-
iton'eum', and' that in the course of time, the ball
made its way down the thigh to the knee, occasion-
ing a disagreeable lameness as long as he lived, and
that he had the benefit of a competent pension.' 1
never knew what became of him after he left the
Country. 1 suspect, however, that the British Gov-
ernment considered him as they did their game-cock
Tarleton in their land service, a sort of web-footed
sea fowl of little value, and not worth much when
alive, for service, nor worth stuffing when dead for
their museum of wonders.
1 repeat it-you ought to tell us the name of the
master of the Newport packet boat, who proudly car-
ried his top-gallant sail, pendent, and other colors, in
achace of twenty miles, in spite of the numerous
shot from the Gaspee.* It was the practice of press-
ing men from out of merchantmen, that trained the
seamen of Newport to defy the British men of war,
and that even to my knowledge, cowed their sailors.
I was so situated and circumstanced as to know: the
The men of war could not, from general orders
through their Admiral, go over a certain line as it re-
garded the Colonists, and Governors Ward and Hop-
kins knew it, and therefore they pestered the Brit-
