Mr. Adams' Second Letter.
The National Intelligencer, of May 27, contains a
second letter from the venerable champion of the righ
of petition. It is larger than the other, and quite as
To the Citizens of the United States, whose Petitions;
Memorials, and Remonstrances have been entrusted to
me, to be presented to the House of Representatives
gf the U. States, at the third session of the twenty-fifth
QUINCY, May 21,1839.
FELLOW.CITIZENS : In a preceding letter, publish-
ed in the National Intelligencer of 23d April last, 1 in-
formed you of the mannefin which the duty had been
. discharged of presenting to the House of Representa-
tives the addresses to that body, which it had been
your pleasure to commit to my care.
Of the duty of the House to receive, to hear, to con-
sider, and to answer those petitions, memorials, and
remonstrances, I had no more doubt than of my own
duty to present them, and to ask the action of the
House upon them, from the moment when they were
entrusted to my hands.
The majority-a large majority of the House, how-
ever, were of a different opinion, and, following the ex-
ample which had been set by the Congress immediate-
ly preceding, and by themselves at the last preceding
session, they resolved to receive, but to lay on the ta-
ble, without reading, without printing, without debating
and without in any manner considering, every petition,
memorial, resolution, proposition, or paper touching
or relating to slavery in these United States, or the
This resolution, you perceive, is not merely a gener-
Sal interdict of petitions and memorials from the people,
but of resolutions, propositions, or papers, whether
presented by members of the'House itself, or coming
from lawful assemblies of the people, or from the Le-
gislatures of the States. It is precisely the same in re-
sult as if the House of Representatives had? prohibited
all its members from ever offering a resolution or ad-
dressing the Speaker upon any subject relating to sla-
very or the slave trade. It is equivalent to a prohibi-
tion to the people to assemble together to discuss the
merits and demerits of slavery and the slave, trade. It
is in the result precisely the same as if the House
should send a guard of soldiers to close the doors of
every Legislative Hall in the Union against all discus.
sion upon the rights of man, the self-evident truths of
the Declaration of Independence, slavery, the slave
trade and its abolition. At every passage of this reso-
lution I have felt deep indignation-but far deeper hu-
miliation. I have felt indignant at the suppression of
my right as a member of the House-of the right of my
constituents to use the privilege of freemen, to assem-
ble together and to deliberate upon freedom and slave-
ry-of the right of the*Legislature of my native Com-
monwealth to pass resolutions expressing their detes-
tation and that of their constituents of slavery in all its
forms. But the deep humiliation that I have felt was
as an American citizen. It was the consciousness of
degradation from the lofty stand we had taken among
the nations of the earth, as the first proclaimers of the
inalienable freedom of the human race. The ignomin-
ious transformation of the people who had commenced
their career in the world by the Declaration of Inde-
pendence, into a nation of slave-traders and slave-
breeders, for dale, was a contemplation mortifying be-
I considered the institution of domestic slavery exist-
ing in the southern States of the Union as a misfortune
entailed upon them in their colonial condition, which,
at the time of the Revolution, they considered in that
light themselves. It was, however, a part of their in-
ternal organization, over which the Congress of the Re-
volution had never exercised jurisdictio andwhichWo
long as it could be maintained in peace, was reserved
for the exclusive 'legislation of the several States.-
There was obviously a gross inconsistency between the
principles proclaimed in the Declaration of Independ.
enee and the practice of holding human beings in per-
petual and hereditary bondage; and the supreme judi-
cial tribunal of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
had decided, even before the conclusion of the Revolu-
tionary war, that the principles of the Declaration of
Independence, repeated in the Declaration of Rights
prefixed to the Constitution of the State, had ipsofacto
aboliwhed all slavery within the State.
Daring the war, and for several years after, slaves
were considered as very unprofitable property. When
the Constitution of the United States was adopted, the
people of the free States were anxiously desirous of
prohibiting the importation of negroes from Africa.-
South Carolina and Georgia were, however, not pre-
pared for that, and a compromise was effected, by
which a term of twenty years was allowed for pro-
curing a supply of the article, and the trade was pro-
hibited in 1808.
But, in the mean time, cotton had become a staple ar-
ticle of our exportation, and some years after the Colon-
ization Society was instituted.
Human foresight is sometimes strangely at fault in
devising expedients for improving the condition of man-
kind. The African slave trade was, if not introduced,
countenanced and recommended by Las Casas, one of
the most amiable and benevolent of mankind, to save
he Indian race from utter extermination.
When the Congress of the Confederation, in the
same year (1787) in which the convention at Philadel-
dreds and perhaps thousands of years must elapse in
the progress of this improvement in the condition of
the only rational tenant of the terrestrial globe, there
cannot be a doubt, nor is it less clear that the principles
proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence ag self-
evident truths, to be carried into practical execution by
all human Governments, are among the most effective
means by which this progress is to be completed.
That the glaring inconsistency between the institu-
tion of domestic hereditary slavery and these princi-
ples proclaimed as self-evident truths was one of the
errors and infirmities of man, which would" most speedi-
ly be made to vanish from the American code of legis-
lation, was universally expected. In thirteen States
of this Union, slavery has been actually abolished.
In seven more, until very recently, the friends of free-
dom have cherished the sanguine hope and expectation
that this curse would be banished from their borders;
but, in the mysterious ways of Providence, while, in
the opinion of mankind, slavery has been growingmore
and more odious; while all the civilized nations of the
earth have been combining to exterminate the African
slave trade, and to class it with the detested crime of
piracy, here, in our country, slavery, like a wounded
rattlesnake, has turned upon her pursuers, and not only
thrusts out her deadly fang in self-defence, but threat-
ens with her mortal venom to contaminate us all.

a disquisition on government and civil liberty, has' so
completely forestalled-the philosophers of nullification
of the present day in their warfare against the self-
evident truths of the Declaration of Idlepenrience,
that their omission to give him credit for their arguments
leaves them not entirely free from the. imputation of
In estimating the opinions of others upon politics, re-
ligion and morals, while we are bound to follow -exch-
sively the dictates of our own judgment, enlightened by
the honest and faithful search after'. truth, we must
make large allowances and exercise a liberal spirit of
toleration. In the moral question of the North Ameri,
can Revolution, the primary source of all the arguments
on the British side was constituted power. "-Thiff ii
ments on the American side were all drawn from ele-
mentary right. When the basement story of the edifice
is laid, the superstructure naturally ri-es upon conrres-
ponding principles of architecture.. The framers of the
Declaration of Independence could justify themselves
and their country-first, for their resistance against
oppression; and, finally, for undertaking and accom.
plishing the Revolution-upon no other principles than
those which they declared. If their principles were
unsound, American independence was nothing more'
than successful rebellion g -
I adhere to the ethics of the Revolution. The self-
evident truths of the Declaration of Independence are
still self-evident truths, whether contested by the Chan-
cellor of thie British Exchequer or by a professor at the
College of William and Mary; whether clashing with.
the law of a Chief Justice of the Court of King',
Bench, or with the equity of a Chancellor of the-State
of South Carolina.
That the Lords North and Mansfield, and the- vast
majority of their contemporary countrymen, weri sin-
cere in the belief that they had a righteous cause, arid
that Washington and Franklin, Hancock and Richard
Henry Lee, Roger Sherman and Arthur Middleton,
were rebels and traitors, we have no reason to doubt.
The truths of the Declaration of Independence are not
limited by time or place; they belong to the nature of
man in every age and every clime. They maybe hsub-
dued, but can never be suppressed. They are' truths
at Constantinople and Pekin, at London and Paris, at
Charleston and at Philadelphia. They were truth# in
the days of Abraham and' of Solomon, of Zor'aster
and Confucius; but as truths to influence human cQn-
duct, they were unknown to all the nations ot iptiquity.
They were revealed in the Gospel of Jesus, but were
never expressly made the foundation of human govern-
ment until they were proclaimed in the Declaration of
Independence. But the Christian system of morals,
while disclosing as eternal truth the natural equality of
mankind, left all its practical consequences hfitrtfi
effect upon existing institutions toa helo* ani'ltdlt dQ
process of the human intellect. The rKigd ofni
Heaven was the name by which Jesus Christ announced
his system of religion and morality to the world'; but he
said it was a kingdom not of this world. H11e did notsay
that it was to demolish the three hundred' thousand
Gods of the Roman empire. Far, Jess did he avow
that it was to emancipate his country from tributary
subjection to the Roman Emperor. On the contrary,
--theuih-diatinctly contesting the right of the RAU :n-
Government to exact itribute from him, he perforuied 'a
miracle to pay the tribute for himself and his first
Apostle; and when asked, for the express pui'pose of
entangling him, whether it was lawful to pay tribute to
Cosar, he avoided the snare by an indirect and inde
cisive answer. He disclaimed all intention of destroy-
ing the ritual of the Levitical law, and left it as a mat-
ter of grave controversy between his principal disciples
till the abolition of that law was expressly disclosed in
a vision to Peter.
But, although the Kingdom of Christ was not of this
world, -and although Christ himself cautiously avoided
all direct collision with existing institutions, religious
or political, it was distinctly foreseen, even during his
life, and still more clearly immediately after his death,
that the Mosaic law, the Roman worship of idols, and
the Roman dominion over tributary provinces must
eventually be abolished by the prevalence of Christiani-
ty. And whoever faithfully studies thle.Christian sy.-
tem as a code of religion and morals, and exercises in
reflection upon it the intellectual faculty bestowed up-
on him by his Maker, cannot possibly fail of coming to
the conclusion that all violence, tyranny and~6ppression,
all exercise of unjust power by man over man, must
ultimately fall before it. In the book of futurity, there-
fore, it is written as clearly as in the Gospel of Christ,
that war and slavery shall cease to exist upon earth;
that nation shall HO more rise.against nation, neither
shall there be war any more. But of the period of
time within which this revolution in the history of
mankind, and this purification of the human character,
is to be consummated, we have no distinct revelation,
nor is human reason competent to foresee. That hun-

EMRIR CORRECTED.-In the introductory rr-
marks to the extract in last evening's paper from
Mr. Chilton Allan's speech, the phrase "keen
irony" was printed keen wrong,"--which, of
course, made nonsense of the sentence.
The President has written a letter to the Demo-
cratic General Committee, in answer to one from
them, desiring to be informed of the probable pe-
riod of his arrival in .this city, in which, with much
good taste, as it seems to us, and some tact too, he
declines all pflblic entertainments-and desires that
there may be as little formality as possible in the.
manner of his reception.
Travelling, as he says, in a private conveyance,
he cannot fix with certainty the day when he will
reach this city-but hopes to do so on the first J uly.

Council, for the expenses of receiving -the Presi-
dent, will now, it may be presumed, be saved to
SGEN. MACOMB AND THIE FLoIlIDANs.-The
St. Augustine Herald of 6th complains of G n.
Macomb's pacification, and holds this language:
Major Gen..Macomb arrives in a steamboat at
Black Creek, crosses over to Fort King, meets a
few Indians of no note, with women and children,
to eat, drink, and be clothed; ard returns to
Washington, after issuing the foregoing docu-
ment, pompous and untrue, to glorify, himself as a
.negotiator, to deceive., the Government and
people of the Union; and to fasten future odium
It is also alleged that the reputed chief with
whom the arrangement was made, has no authori-
ty whatever. We. quote the following:
This ChittoTustedugge (or Chittee Amathla,)
has been known to inhabitants of this place for
twenty-five years, only as a common Indian,
which his appearance indicates, like all his gene-
ration; and that the. evidence of his being now
clothed with any authority whatever, is the word
of the negro interpreter, Sandy Perryman, who
says, that on going among the Indians te invite
them to the talk, he found Sam Jones so thick-
headed, and Wild Cat such a fool, that Hu (the
negro,) made Chitto Tustenuigge chief, and brought
him to make a treaty with the General. That is,
a negro. slave in the employ of the U. S. Army,
makes a chief of a common Indian, and upon an
agreement with this man, the Commander-in-
Cnief proclaims that he has terminated the war!
Well may our people say the General was so de-
termined upon making a treaty, that he would have
made one-had nobody else met him-with a
squaw! -Another negro interpreter, quite as
worthy of credit as Sandy, on being asked what he
thought of peace, replied: "No safety yet-dis
man no chiefat all-white men always take com-
mon Indian, call him chief, and den believe ebry
ting he say."
Whether Chitto was delegated to make a treaty
or not, he certainly had a private object in his vi-
sit, which was the release of his two'children, and
his wife, or cousin, who were prisoners at Black
Creek and who accompanied him home. While
here -he used repeatedly in presence of Spaniards,
most violent hostile language towards Ameri-
cans, to the effect that the Iniians were their mai-
ters, and would have the country again. Gene-
ral Macomb had presented him with a large silver
medal, having on one side a bust of the President,
and on the other, two hands clasped, as a symbol
of peace. On *one occasion, to mark his disdain
for the people and the Government, he held up this
medal)*pit 'upon it, and cast it from him with ex-
ecrations of the greatest contempt.'
Thus to gratify a childish vanity, unbecoming
his years-to enable him to return to Washington
Spost-haste, proclaiming, I came, -I saw, I con-
quered," has Gen. Macomb forgotten the denuncia-
tions against those who cry PRACE, when there is
SNoo peace. We .have lately traversed the country,
300. miles from the Onattahoochee, to the St.
John's, and witnessed, along the whole route, plain-
tation after plantation abandoned, and house after
house desolate, or in ashes; while a tale of horror
was connected with each, and mound. by the way-
side marked the silgat resting-place of the murder-

not one more outrageous than is here disclosed.-
The document comprises the correspondence of the
department itarelation to the execution of the trea.
ty with the Winnebago Indians. The treaty was
maidein 1837, at -Washington, and the Indians
agresadto-cede to tha UnMiid States: their lands on
thd east side of the M issippi. In the payments
-to b loade by the United States Government,
there were two stipulations: first, that 0150,000
should be applied to the payment of the debts of
the traders with the Winnebagoes-aecond, that
the United States should pay to the relations and
friends of said Indians, having not more than one
quarter of Winnebago blood, one hundred thousand
dollars. In order to ascertain the proper indivi-
duals who were to receive this money, the Govern-
dnpent appointed'two ommissioners--Gen. Simeon
|l)ameron,ofPennsylvania, and Mr. James Mur-
ray, of Maryland-to prijeWd to the west, and
There obtain the required information. With them
went a lawyer from Philadelphia, named D. M.
Brodhea4' who appeared as the legal adviser, but,
as the document referred to shows, went but to
speculate or assist in speculating and defrauding
the poor Indians out of phat the Government had
unanfmisnly' proposed to give them. Arrived at
the place of deetiationi, they euomMenced the work
for which thy'.were despatched, "but, instead of

the holders were induced to sell, from misrepresen-

made by the speculation, but the least estimitte is
put at sixty thousand dollars. Fortunately for the
cause ofjustice, however, Major.Hitchcock, who

men, have been attempted to operate on the Secre-
tary of War, to induce him to reconsider his de
cision rejecting the report of the Commissioners ;
.but, with a firmness which doescredit to his charac-
ter as a man and an- officer, he has withstood them
all, and set aside their report. The consequence
of this course will be, that Brodhead and Cameron,
will lose their money, or else must seek it of the
Half Breeds, whom they havecheated and defraud-
ed-a consummation which their conduct richly

of the old saying, that "there is nothing new un-
der the sun;" or, in other words,-" what is, has
been;. and what has been, now is,"-except, per-
haps, .,tlantic steamboats, and 30 miles per hour
locomotives on railroads.
The mercantile world now is all agog about
Cotton ; and it is asserted, that the like of the pre-
sent times never before was witnessed. This may be
so-but, after reading the following cuttings from
the New York American, I leave you and your
readers to decide. But first permit me to inform
you, that last evening I took up the .New York
lmerican to read the news, when my eye was at-
tricted by the following, which appeared tome to
be "very late news," and very important, too; and
so I read:
I From Bell's Weekly Messenger of May 31.]
GENERAL STAGNATION OF TRADE
The distresses of the country have again been
brought before Parliament on the Birmingham pe-
tition, which was presented by the Earl of Carnar-
von, which was answered by the Duke of Wel-
lington. It is admitted on all hands that our
manuFactures and commerce are in a most embar-
rassed condition, and that our home consumption
is suffering as much as our export i rade; that con-
fidence has almost disappeared between man and
man ; and that so little assistance can be obtained
on credit, from the known diminution of the pro-
fits of trade, that the capitalist refuses to make ad-
vances, and reposes in a sort of sullen contentment,
upon the interest of his investments, without ex-
Sposing 'them to the hazard of speculation. It is
quite clear that such a system must produce gene-
ral stagnation and distress. Money is the manure
by which-the field of commerce is invigorated and
refreshed; and, therefore, when the capitalist is
discouraged, and locks up his money in public se-
curities, the general merchant and trader is neces-
The Duke of Wellington, in a very intelligent
speech, contends that our productive industry is as
great as ever; that the raw staples of our m.tnu-
factures were never more abundantly imported
from abroad; that cotton, wool, hemp, and colonial
produce, have flowed in upon us with an unusual
plenty. Wheince, then, he asks, any genuine
cause of complaint ? Here are the means of em-
ployin.industry and setting the people to work ;
and consumption, however depressed at present,
must in a short period revive.
The Chronicle contains some interesting debates
in Parliament concerning the distress of the com-
mercial and manufacturing classes, the "supera-
bundant population" in Canada, and the slave
trade. In reference to the stagnation of business,
Mr. Peel remarked-
"There had been an over-production of several
articles. The bad harvest had a combined effect.
The American Tariff was another cause. He
could not allow that Government ought to attempt
to meet this Tariff by smuggling'; but he believed
that individuals would counteract it, and that Ame-
rica would find herself as much injured by her Ta-
riff, as England had been injured by har restric-
tive system in the Silk Trade. The war in the
Levant, and the civil dissensions in South Ameri-
ca, and the State 'of Portugal, had concurred to
cause stagnation and commercial distress. He
thought, however, that the vessel would have bet-
ter chance of success if he she were left to right
herself. The system of factory labor, instead of
manual labor, had produced great consequences^
for when' weaving was done by hand, in time of
stagnation workmen could subsist upon their for-
mer savings, but this was not the case with ma-
chine'laborers. Machinery was often so expen-
sive, tha' the.proprietors would work at a loss of
ten per cent. rather than stop the machinery. For
the last ten years at Manchester, machinery had
improved in powers of production in the ratio of
10 percent. per annum. Few persons had attribu-
ted enough to the importation of laborers from Ire-
"A greater number of Irish. laborers in the
manufacturing districts were out of employ than
people could 'imagine, and the magistrates relieved
them. rather than pass them to their -parishes, re-
flecting that as they had contributed to the pros-
perity of the places, they had a right to relief'when
in distress. Where the passage was so low, and
this country possessed the advantage of a legal
provision for the poor, it was impossible to- check
the influx of Irish laborers, and this fact would
suggest important alterations in the state of the
law (hear, hear, hear!) He felt convinced that
any alterations with respect to the value of the
currency would be attended with the greatest evils
to every class." -
Mr. A. Baring said--
"He would allow that the fluctuations of profit
and loss, of good and bad years, was the nature of
mercantile business. It was a fallacy to suppose
that the fluctuations of trade could be accounted
for: they occurred without any outward or visible
sign, and defied the philosopher to detect the cause.
Stagnation was not peculiar to this country; for
Lyons, Routen, and the whole manufacturing dis-
tricts of the Seine, were equally distressed with
England. He was sorry to hear the distress attri-
buted to so many different causes; but he was
firmly of opinion that a steadiness of the value of
money was of all things most desirable, nor could
a government alter the standard of the currency
without the most gross violation of justice." A
more conspicuous cause of the state of- our trade
was the tariff of the United States. No person
could doubt but that the first effect of the tariff was
to increase the demand of that country for our
commodities-and ultimately to diminish it. The
merchants, afraid of wanting supplies which they
would not be able to procure after the tariff came
into operation, sent over large orders to this coun-
try. In the year immediately prior to the tariff
coming into operation, the amount of our exports
to America was upwards of 16,000,0001, while the
exports of the previous year were only 8,200,0001.
These large exports were followed by a total ces-
sation of our ordinary trade. Hewas glad to hear
the right hon. gentleman.refer to the other States
of America-the former Spanish Colonies, which
were now the seats of civil war and confusion. It
was very unfortunate that such was their condi-
tion; and any effort of ours, short of direct inter-
ference, which could put an end to that state of
confusion, would be a great benefit to this country.
The population of the United States was now be-
coming rather crowded, and the people were set-
ting up manufactures for themselves. It was,
are apt totllow shor,4nes; and that, in a word,
there never was a day so cloudy that there was not
b'ue sky beyond the clouds; and though, aas.we see
above, that gloom was prevalent on 31st May,"
yet. that on 9.h June, Cutton was "firm a.t Liver;
MrXIco AND TEXAS.-Col. Bee, who was sent
by Texas to the city of Mexico, to negotiate if
possible, a recognition of the independence of
Texas, has failed in his mission, and was on his'
return to TexasoA letter from him, on board the
.French frigate Id Gloire, bound to the Havana,
is the authority for this statement.
On the other hand, there are rumors from Mexi-
co, of a new attempt being in preparation against
Texas. This does not seem to us probable. The
last two years have added much to the population
and strength of Texas, while, during the satre
period, through dissensions and civil war, Mexico
has been losing strength. What she could not ac-
complish against a handful, when her own resour-
ces were more'unbroken, she is not now likely to
undertake against a much larger community, and
with diminished means of attack.
There is no doubt, we believe, that vessels of
war of light draft of water-brigs and schooners-
are preparing in the'United States for Texas, to be
commanded and cfficered chiefly, it is said, by
young officers of the American Navy. We do not
like the notion of our officers thus adventuring into
a foreign service. It is making too much a trade
of their honorable profession. The days are past-
never, we hope, to return-when it was deemed
meritorious for a fighting-man to take service
wherever there was honor and danger. War is
now no longer looked upon as a harmless'pastime,
or glorious strife, in which the chivalry of the world
may engage in mere levity of heart. It is now felt
and acknowledged to be a great evil, and-except
in the extremes cases-a great crime; and offi-
cers, naval and military, are more prone, than at
former periods, to ask themselves, before girding
on the sword, whether the quarrel is just, and,
above all, whether it.is their country's.
The Dalgettys, and like mercenaries, who, for
pay and provant, were ready to fight on any side,
have long since passed away-nor is there much
more toleration now for those who go to seek fame
and promotion in fighting for a cause not their
FROm FLORIDA.-The St. Augustine News, of
June Sih, states, that Picolata is to be abandoned,
and the sick are.to be removed to Fort Heilemnan.
On the 26th ult., 18 miles from Fort Fanning,
two privates of Co.pt. Bradley's Volunteer Com-
pany were'killed by Indians. One of the -party
was scalped three times.
FORT KIN, May 30.
A few Indians have come in since I last wiote.
A large number, with Tiger Tail, and several other
chiefs, will be here in a day or two. The chiefs
never asked Gen. Macomb whether they would
be permitted to remain permanently south of Pease
Creek, and he never told them that they would
not. If the Indians should be permitted to remain
in Florida, it will bea fatal blow to the prospe-
rity of the Territory; and every Floridian ought
to raise his voice against so suicidal a measure.
"1 Since writing tie above, our negro interpreter,
(Murray) who is the best and most useful man we
have in that capacity, was shot in the side by a
scoundrel named Edgar, who is Orderly Sergeant
of the Company that garrisons this post.- The
ball passed immediately over the stomach, but
under the p ritoneum, and I think is lodged in the
liver. He is still alive,*but his chance of recovery
is very slim. He had not been shot more than an
hour, when a couple of chiefs arrival here, but
having no interpreter, I cannot tell you what news
they bring from the interior. To-morrow they
will bring in with them from a camp nine miles
from here, another Indian negro who will interpret

panied with circumstances of great wantonness.-

Murray was captured in 1836, and belonged to
Micapotaka, now West, and was considered the
best guide' in the nation. It is rather surprising
that, under these circumstances of outrage, Ed-
gar u should have been bailed at Newnansville.-
ACCIDENT AT JACKSoNVILLE.-A melancholy
accident occurred at Jacksonville on Monday last,
by the upsetting of a sail boat belonging to that
place. A parry of gentle men, consisting of Capt.
Stratton and son, Mr. Mayo and Dr. Stewart,
were sailing on a pleasure excursion, and the wind
freshening rather too much, were engaged in short-
ening sail, when the boat capsized, and Mr. Mayo
and Dr. Stewart perished. Captain Stratton and
son were discovered in. their perilous situation,
and rescued from the fate.of their companion ;--
FRCM VERA CRUz.-By the way of Galveston
late dates have been received at New Orleans from
Vera Cruz, by the Empresario, Captain Longcope,
from that por, having sailed the. 2nd instant.-.
The advices from Mexico are to the 28th ultimo.
The Federal prisoners'taken under Mexia-are ma-
ny of them employed in working the streets of Ve-
ra Cruz, and are treated with the greatest cruelty.
The Government papers state that the number of
Federalits killed and wounded at the overthrow of
Maxia is 600. .
General Lemas, with 1700 Federalists, is still in
the vicinity of Monclova, and now seems to be re-
garded by the Government party as their most
formidable enemy. He is said to be a brave and
skilful officer, and very much esteemed by his par-
ty. There is not a single vessel of the Mexican
navy left. The Gazettes represent the government
much straitened in its pecuniary resources by the
late difficulties, and it is proposed to dismiss all the
supernumerary officers, curtail the pay of the re-
mainder, stop all pensions, increase the taxes, and
again resort to -fore d, loans. It is thought the
church will be called upon to disgorge some of its
enormous treasure. Col. Bee left Vera Cruz, for
Havana the 29th ultimo. Santa Anna, it is said,
is watched with too much jealousy for him to be
of any service to Texas, were he so disposed.
In Tampico the Federalists still resisted the ef-
forts of the Cenralists to put them down. It was
thought that the contest between the two parties
was not yet by any means ended. The Govern-
ment papers.boast muc of the victory over Mexia,
and say that it is now oqly necessary to send 12
.or 15,000 men to overrun Texas, in order to eradi-
cate every trace of insubordination. On the sub-
ject of the threatened invasion, the Galveston Ga-
zettee well remarks that the notion is preposterous.
When the Mexican Government allows a body of
insurgents, numbering scarcely more than a thou-
sand of its own imbecile citizen, to*place its own
existence in the utmost jeopardy, requiring all its
energies to put down the tumult, it is scarcely to
be anorehended that without unanimity nmnnwr its
GAME LAWS-AS the-period approaches for
woodcock-shooting, poachers and purveyors for our
city eating-houses are bestirring themselves to
teke time by t'e forelock.
We caution all such, that there is a pretty good
look-out kept upon unfair sportsmen-and that
arrar'gements are made to prosecute every viola-
tion of the law that can be traced and proved.
The period for shooting woodcock in this State
is from the lst July to 1st January.
In New Jersey it is between the fifth fJuly and
the.Ist January. Of course, the 4Lh Ju!y is a for-
bidden day, and of this, those who are in the habit
of shooting in the Jerseys should take notice, for at
Newark, aEtiabethtown, Rahway, Chatham, and
elsewhere, associations have been formed, and vigi-
lance committees appointed, to take care that the
law be not violated. For fourth of July shooters,
there will be a special look-out.
PHILADBLPHIA LOAq COMPANY.-We learn that
the Philadelphia Loan Company" stopped pay-
ment yesterday, an assignment having been made
for the benefit of the creditors of the institution. It
is understood that this catastrophe was hastened
by the excited state of the public mind in relation
to corporate bodies.. It is said that the means of
this loan company are sufficient to indemnify the
smaller creditors.- (Pennsylvanian.)
A steam frigate called the Cyclops, is building
at Pembroke, Eng., and nearly ready for launch-
ing. She will be the largest man of war steamer
in the world.

rious statement by Dr. Granville is taken from an
English paper. It is drawn from the registered
easesof876 women, and is derived from their an-
'swers as to the age at which they respectively mar-
ried. Of the 876 females, there were married
rears of .1ge.. Years of dige.

A REMARKABLE CHARACTER.-Dr. Radcliffe,
of free spoken notoriety, who told William 1lid,
that he would not have his two legs for his three
kingdoms, or-Abernethy of our day. could not be
more rude and unceremonious in manners ihan
John Taylor..H- charged all alike, rich and poor;
and such a charge! hear it, 0 ye doctors !-eigh-
teen pence a week for medic ne and attendance.-
It was plain .he did not want to make a fortune;
and yet,'ev n at this rate, such were the immense
numbers who flocked to him, he did m;ke a for-
tune. The rich, it it true, who received benefit
from him, often made him handsome presents; but
if they made these before they left, they got no bet-
ter attendance than they would have done without
-for it was his principle to do all that his art could
for every one ; and, if the poor Cever paid him, as
many never dlid, be never asked them for it; they
staid as long as they pleased, and then went when
they pleased; They had lodgings in the cottages
ot tho~village, and I believe that it.was owing to
the need of lodgings that the village itself sprang
np. There was a subscription-box kept to help
such of the poor as could not help themselves; and
when J,, hn Taylor heard of any cases of great need
amongst them, he would carry round the box him-
self amongst the more affluent of his patients, and
contribute liberally too. It was no wonder that
such numbers hastenied to the Whitworth Doctor.
The medical men of the neighborhood, of course,
exerted all their influence against the spread of
John Taylor' extraordinary reputation, and care-
fully trumpeted about all the cases in which they
could learn thct he had been unsuccessful; and no
doubt there wire plenty of these, especially as al-
most ever _p-" went to him-had been un-
.'der it land of,'aegla"lr practitioner till his faith
had failed, and a great proportion of them were
such as had b~en dismissed from hospitals and in.
firmaries as in urable. But John Taylor cared for
none of these hinge.
It was his d ily delight to deride the skill of the
medical men 0f the country ; and, sure enough, he
had always bore him plenty of instances of sig-
nal failures ontheir p .rt. Ay," he us' d to say,
as he sat dressing his patients, and looking round
hirw on perham such a group of cripples and in-
valids as no inirmary in England contained, the
doctors call nm a quack and a horse-doctor; but
who has been doctoring you, I wonder 1 What
makes you all come to .Whitworth, eh!.if you
have good doctlirs at home ? I should like to know
that. Can an] one tell me that?" And then he
would laugh, did tell them what had passed be-
tween, him ana the neighboring doctors. "A fa-
mous doctor ofeanchester," s:id he, on one occa-
sion, and nam ig a leading physician, "met me
the other day, as I was going along the street.
'Well, John Tylor,' said he, 'you go on killing
as usual, I suppose.' Ay, repli,.d 1, to humor the
man, but at a sdnewhat cheaper rate than thou
dost." That John did some signal cures, there can
be no question.
It is probable that his clear, strong head, and an
intuitive turn for .uvgery, gave a precise know-
ledge of what his drugs and applications could ef-
feet, and that his boldness carried him through
what more scientific bands dared' not have under-
taken. I knew a'lady well who had been given
up by the ablest -swgeons of. her neighborhood.
Her complaint was cancer in her breast. Though
living a hundred Wblls from Whitworth, she' re-
solved, as a last' source, to go to John Taylor.
When John exami*d the.breast, he looked at her
and said--" What Ot thou come here for, woman ?"
The lady, who waa woman of dauntless heart,
replied, To be e*aed, to be sure." "Cured I"
said John, in a stern voice, "Not all the doctors in
England can cure thee; thou may go home again,
and dee!" I tell you, John Taylor," replied the
lady, "1 shall do hoosuch-thing. I came here to see
whether you were s much cleverer than other men
as you are represented. Try your hand, John Tay-
lor, on me. You htik I am afraid of being hurt, but
you are mistaken :I can bear what you can inflict ;
and I say, try your hand-let it be kill or cure. I
can but die at last.' "Thou art a-brave latee" re-
plied John, in evii ent surprise, "then I wilt try,
and God prosper ueboth!" The lady remained
there six month, and, during that period,
she suffered as much as it was possi-
ble for a humar creature to bear ; but
sha came home a sound woman, and lived thir-
ty years afterwards. I have often sat, when a boy,
and heard her tell wial passed at Whitworth.-
Dr. John, as he was called, had then two sons
grown up, who assated him, George and James.
George was married and Mrs. George acted as
the compounder of hie medicines, and the lady,
who seemed herself b catch the spirit of the place,
used to help her. 'e principal remedies used
were, a diet'drink to purify the blood ; an active
caustic, called by th appropriate name of"K' en,"
with which they era icated cancers ; a spirituous
liniment, called Wltworth Red Bottle ;" a black
ADDITIONAL SEIZUREs.-The Boston Advertiser
has the following notice of additional seizures of
vessels carried into Halifax on the 12th:.
Three fishing vessels were carried in a few hours
before thedeparture of the Acadian, which sailed
on the 12 h, prizes to the British Government
schooner Victory. Their names were the Adelle,
Brown,'of "Woodhbay," (probably Boothbay);
Eliza, Morton, of Bristol, Me.; and Birton, Milier,
of- As the Acadian cme out, fcur other
prizes were going in, one of which'hailed from
Dresden, Me. The fishing schr. Shetland, Chase,
of and from this port, for Labrador, was carried
into Halifax on the 5th, for an alleged infraction of
the revenue laws. She was seized at or near
Whitehead, by Mr. M. Forester, who, we under-
stand, laid a plot to entice the captain to sell 20
shillings worth of tobacco to a British subject,
wh ch was the ground of the seizure. Her arrival
is announced in the Nova Scotian, as from "a tra-
ding and fishing voyage, with oil cloths, gin, tobac-
co, &c." Upon examination, it did not appear
that she had more than the usual outfits of fishing
vessels, with the exception of about 60 lbs. of to-
bacco. The case, however, would probably go in-
to the Admiralty Court, and if the vessel should
not be condemned, the expenses, &c., would leave
but a trifling balance for her owners.
Two fishermen had been seized at or near the
Magdalen Islands, and taken to Guvsboro'. The
following paragraph from the Halifax Times of the
IIth, is not conceived in the most liberal spirit,
and there is some reason to fear that in their new-
!y awakened eagerness to follow this game, they
may pursue it beyond the bounds of prudence and
Yankee Prizes.-The Nova Scotians are play-
ing the very devil among the Yankee'fishermen on
the coast. Every week brin's several prizes into
our harbours, and the business is getting brisk. In
a few days we have no doubt that some of our en-
terprising young merchants will be able to buy an
American schooner cheap, wherewith to carry on
their trade. Ti.e Victory -has captured four, which
have been taken into Yarmouth, and await the de-
cision of the Courts at Halifax. Mr. Matthew
Forrester, Sergeant-a'-Arms, has placed one fine
looking schooner, slid to have been engaged in the
tea and tobacco trade, along side. the Queen's
Wharf, where she awaits a similar adjudication,
and is off in the Victory to bring in some more.-
Mr. Marshall, of Guysboro, has caught two near
the Gut of Canso; and we understand from the
symptoms around the shores, that many arrivals
of the same character may be expected during the
summer. It is some consolation, that these are
cases in which not only our own fish, but also the
labor and the vessels of our good neighbor, are
made to contribute to the prosperity of the Pre-
vince. Our population have beun taunted by the
Americans with want of industry in not pursuit g
the finny race with more activity; but it will per-
haps answer the same, if not a better purpose, to
use the industry of the Americans, and then catch
MARRIAGE.-No vulgar maxim has proved more
detrimental to female happiness than that a re-
formea rake makes the best of husbands; in al-
most every instance the direct contrary has hap-
pened. For, in the first place, if the main were
true, it is far from certain that matrimony will
produce a reform. The vanity of an enamored fe-
male may flatter her that her amiable qualities will
effect a reformation; but experience tells us
that the reformation must go deeper than thai
which is only the momentar, effect of an impet-
uous passion; it must extend to the moral prin-
ciple ; to the whole mode of thinking. A rkae is
but another term for a sensualist, which in itself
implies the quality selfish; he has been accusomed
to sacrifice the best interests of others to his personal
gratification ; and there are more ways than one
of trifling with the happiness of a fellow creature.
Further, the libertine has acquired a despicable
opinion of the sex; and we know that matrimonial
tyranny usually originates (from a contemptible
opinion of the female sex.- Lastly, in marrying a
rake there are many chances to one. that a woman
marries a drunkard or a gamester; and these
are perhaps the only vices which are never to be
reformed. We might add, that without some no-
tion of religion, morality has but an uncertain
basis-and what rake would be thought to eater-
tain any respect for religion.

CURING HAMS.-I beg leave to. present to the

and pour i- on my ham, and in one week, I have
smoked ham, very tender, of an excellent flavor,
and well smoked. When the whether becomes
some warm, there will a scum rise on the pickle,
by keeping my ham under the pickle, it will keep

MR. ADAMS'S SECOND LETTER.
(Continued from first page.)
I will not undertake dogmatically to affirm that col
nies of civilized colored men cannot be established aT
made to flourish on the coast of Africa ; nor am I pr
pared to advance to deny the influence which they mf
hereafter be destined (.) exercise in civilizing the nati
land of slavery itself. So far as these may be the o
jects of the Colonization Societies,. they have my tfe
vent goodw ,ishes,., though -very little of iny hope
But foirthe enanaipaiioii pf-aSltves .or the abolitipa
slavery jio tbe United States, the search forlthe phil
gopher's stone, or the casting of nativities by tf
course 6f the'stars, 'were rational and sensible amusi
meats in comparison with the serious undertakings
the Colonization Society.
With a high and sincere respect for many of th
leading members of that Society, a grave objection I
wjich it has in my mind been always liable is that
wearing a double face. Consisting of' distinguish
citizens from the free and from the slaveholding State
it is commended to the patronage of the North an
of the South upon totally different and indeed opposil
principles.. At the North it has been and is strictly a
abolition society. The removal'to Africa ot emanc
pated slaves~is the argument in the North t6 the hit
inanity of the benevolent and liberality of the rici
To remove from the plantation slave the dangerous an
disaffected neighborhood of the free colored man is th
favorite argument for colonization at the South. Thei
is in this an' appearance of duplicity, the more unfavo
ably prepossesoing candid minds, inasmuch as exper
ence hitherto countenances the conclusion that th
southern foresight had more of worldly wisdom on th
,occasion than that of the North.
Other and recent circumstances, little noticed hithe
to by the public, have raised new questions with rE
gard to the undertakings of the--Colonization Societie
which, without attaching undue importance to then
have bearings of Very serious aspect upon the prince
pies of our own government. In the course ofthe laf
year the American Colonization, Sopiety hasbeen r(
instituted under a :new organization, and its Idirectoi
have undertaken, by self-assumed authority, to const

pie of that Republic the sovereign powers of declarin

of the American :.Colonization Society! Mr. Va
Buren has been severeJy censured fordenoun sing, i
his last annual Message to Congress,, the antii"epubli
can tendencis of associated wealth. If the imputatio
of anti-repulpfian tendencies had been extended to ai
partial associations,i it would have been more just an
less exceptionable., ;;
For what is the Republic itself but associated wealth
The very name of, Republic is compounded of two Lat
in words, RES PUBLICA; signifying -the, associate
wealth of the people; and the word Commonweath i
but the literal! Anglo-Saxon version of the same ele
ments.. Thep.Republic, the Commonwealth, and asso
elated wealth, are terms precisely synonymous and t
charge associated wealth with anti.republican -enden
cies is to say that the Republic itself is ant.i.-epubli
can. The v-ery derivation of this compound weod, hot)
in the Latin and Englishlanguages, proves t iat th4
institution of civil sbie-y i` identical with associate(
wealth, a itJgr'eat purposes are to protect and !secure
the rights of property as" wll as ofipersons. ,
But as the Republicitself is one great comm nity o
associated.wealth, it may be snid with strict propriety
and all experience will confirm the observation, tha
anti-republican tendencie are- incidental to all'partia
associations for the promotion of objects other than th(
good of all. The tendenc~eaof associated wealth art
therefore not more-antirepub~ican, perhaps ;not s(
much so, as those of aosociated poverty. The Onti-re.
publican tendency consists not in-the wealth ior th<
poverty of the parties, but ifl the principle of alssocia
ted power, arnd ilethe .purpoae; o the association. I
Hihad been p5roposed to 'the 'Pesident of^ the Unite<
States to introduce int0 his annual message a note o
censure upon, t~he anti-republican tendencies of
Trades' Uaiorehe' would haye perceived instantly th<

message. But if anti-repubiican ^,tendencies j wen

ed that Congress would propose an amendnmfct to the Con-
stitution of the United States, for the ref. l to admit any
new slave State into the Union. The petittf "idid n)t speci-
fy the mode of amendment desired, but I hae loI b .en of
opinion, that if the object is ever to be attained pi ve.bly,
and with the consent of the slaveholders, o which ihav
but a very faint hope, it must be by that proce fc and nINT
will be accomplished by any other; and I took th -occasion,
when asking leave of the House to present the petil .'i, to in-
clude in the request the permission also to present llree re.
solutions of amendment to the Constitution : 1. Providing
that after a given day, that all children born within the
United States should be born free. 2. That, with the ex-
ception of Florida, no State, the Constitution of which would
sanction the institution of slavery, should ever be admitted
into the Union ; and 3d. That after a given day there should
be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, unless in punish-
ment for crime, at the seat of Government of the Union.-
The House refused me the permission to present either the
petition or the resolutions. The petition was afterwards ad-
mitted, with many hundreds more, to the Clerk's table, by
the general order of the House of the 18th of February, but
the resolutions were never received ; and, if they had been,
must have been laid on the table by tne by the gag resolu-
tion of the 12th of December, 1838.
I have not been surprised to find in the Emancipator a
notice that my resolutions were not satisfactory'to the peti-
tioners at whose suggestion I had prepared them for presen-
tation. They are in no wise and not in the remotest degree
responsible for them. I had no expectation that my reso-
lutions would be received by the House. I knew they
would not be' discussed. I presented them rather- to the
petitioners, as comprising the only mode in which I believe
the abolition of slavery could possibly be effected without
violence and without injustice.
I lament the temper mutually rankling between the slave-
holders and the abolitionists, and am convinced that, so long
as it exists in this Union, or even in the District of Colum-
bia, is as far beyond the regions of possibility, as any pro-
ject of the philosophers of Laputa. The multiplication of
Anti-Slavery societies within the last three years has appear-
ed to me rather to weaken than to promote their cause, or
at ,least, their prospects of immediate or early success.
With the increase of their numbers, new and collateral
questions, always controvertible and perplexing, like para-
site suckers from the main stem of the tree, have sprung up
to divide their counsels, and introduce dissention among
themselves. The captious disputations of moral and politi-
cal casuistry, about non resistance, defensive war, the rights
of women, political action, no Government, the social
condition of the colored race, the encouragement given to
the slaves to escape from their masters, and exaggerated
representations of the miseries of their condition, have
eminentfy concurred not only to counteract their influence
upon the main object of their association, but tomake them
unpopular and even bdious, not only in the South, but in all
parts of the Union. Their annoyance of candidates for
popular election, by putting searching questions to them as
tests, importing at once a promise and a threat, has not pro-
pitiated to them the good-will of any party, and has
made them obnoxious to all. The purity of the principle
of these formal interrogatories, for answers to be followed
by suffrages, is very questionable, with reference to the
freedom of elections. The expedient itself has seldom if
ever been successful to accomplish its object. It has in
almost every instance disclosed the weakness of the aboli-
tionists as a party, distinct from the great political competi-
tors for the favor and the power of the people.
My objections to the immediate abolition of slavery in the
Territory of Florida are the same with those which I have
here set forth against the same measure in the District of
Columbia, with the addition that the conditions upon which
theTerritory was ceded to the United States by Spain
formally stipulate for its admission into the Union on the
same terms as are secured to the primitive citizens of the
United States. To impose a new condition now upon the
inhabitants, as a sine qua non, of admission to the Union
as a state, would be in my judgment a breach of faith. I
voted against the admission of the State of Arkansas,
because her Constitution expressly denied to her Legislature
the power of emancipating slaves. Should the Constitu-"
tion of Florida contain the same provision, I should vote in
the same manner; but the faith of the nation is already
pledged to the admission of Florida on the same terms
upon which other southern States have been admitted ; and
we have no right now to require more of her than has been
required of them.
The petitions against the admission of any State hereafter,
the Constitution of w ich shall tolerate slavery, were not
susceptible of an affirmative answer. A negative resolution
to that effect would have no binding force, even if adopted
by both Houses of Congress ; for they cannot circumscribe
the powers of their successors. But, with the exception of
Florida, I never would consent to the admission of any new
I have now fully and freely exposed to y fellow-citi-
zens, my views with regard to the multitude of petitions
which you have committed to my charge. The opinion of
the civilized world has been for ages maturing into a settled
conviction that slavery, in any of its forms,, is a sin And a
reproach to any people. More than three thousand years
ago the debasement cf the human character, by its operation
upon the slave himself, was noticed by the greatest of Poits,
who says, that the day which makes man a slave takes away
half his worth. Its degrading and corrupting influence tppn
the heart and mind of the masters is h-ot less phfilosopliically
true. The new theory which attempts to convert slaveryin-
to a blessing, and slaveholding into a virtue, is, in my delib-
erate j judgment, a more lamentable debasemeht of the human
soul than the mere endurance of servitude can effect. It
places the animal man below the level of the brute creation.
[t surrenders his soul to the dominion of his vilest passions,
belies the Divine revelation of a God of mercy, and insult
the throne of Omnipotence. It reduces the natural relation
between man and man exclusively to the standard o phyai-
cal force, and makes tyranny and oppression, inflicted by the
strong, and suffered by the weak, to comprise the whole duty
This system bears the same relation to that of the Decla-
ration of Independence as idol worship to the worship of the
true God. The substitution of its creed for that of the na-
tural rights of man would bring him back to the alternative
of the worship of Moloch and Mammon,
And devils to adore for deities."
Should this system become the prevailing doctrine of the
South, it is impossible that this Union should long continue.
As its avowed basis rests exclusively upon physical force, to
physical force it will resort not only to sustain its own insti-
tutions, but to encroach upon the institutions of freedom
elsewhere. This disposition is already manifested in many
ways, in the brutal treatment experienced by citizens of the
free States, if but suspected of favoring abolition in the slave-
holding jurisdictions-in the insolent demands upon the free
States to deliver up their citizens for alleged offense
against the slave laws-in the conspiring of American
slaveholders in a foreign land against the life of one of the
great champions of human'" liberty-in the ruffian "'threats
of assassination, addressed to members of Congress
for daring to present your petitions-in the surrender of the
post office to lynching law-in the murder ofLovejoy-in
the burning of the Pennsylvania hall-in Southern commer-
cial conventions to force the natural channels of trade f.esa _
North to South-in Southern railways and banking com-
panies combined to link the Mammon of the West'with the
Moloch of the South, and in the strains of 'commendation
upon the land-robbing practices of the Anglo Saxons, a.d
their virtuous abhorrence of custom-houses, embellished by
their blackleg reverence and punctuality for their debts of
honor. s ,
Fellow-citizens, when I witness scenes like these tramsact
ed in the face of day; when I bear principles like these is-
suing from the professor's chair, from the chancellor's bench".
from the diplomatic saloon, and from the land jobber's gam-
ing and dinner table, all in frightful harmony with one ano-
ther, I hang my head in despondency at the prospects. of
the rights of man, for the short remnant of my days, through-
out this Union, and even in the District of Columba. 119t

which they may yet hope to defend and to vindicate, fe that
