HENRY BULLUCK, 6ien street,
No.H Danger's Court.
January 10th, 1835.
About two years ago I caught the secret disease. and not
understanding it I applied to a Doctor, who agreed to cure
me in a short time, and I paid him hischargeiand remain-
ed under his treatment for the space of three months, and
found no relief. I then left him, and applied to another
Doctor, and was unnider his care for sit months, and still
getting worse I was toreed to g to the Hospital, and there
remained for a long time, and*ot no relief; but fortunate-
ly one of Dr. Huet's books fell into ay hauds; I read it,
and was inclined to try him; but my miney being run out,
I left the Hostital in a ssrte of despair, and went to him
and stated.my ease- he took me in hani lo cure melin three
weeks, which I could not believe; but thanks be to God, in
one week I went to work, and in less than thrte weeks was
entirely well, and any one applying to you, and being
doubtful of the same, can call on ne, and I will satisfy
them. JOHN MORTIMER.
?Dr. Huet will give my direction.
T HY Directors of the Philadelphit Ice Co." have the
Isatisletion ot stating to thIe eitilens of Philadelphia

Place," for the preservation of ice. lit quantity now put
up (owing to the peculiar uenstructi0n of the house) is
rflly equul to oo00,OO bushels, put up it hose built upon
the old plan.
Of the superior quality of this comply's ice, it is hardly
necessary to say any thing, as it is known to the public
that it has all been taken from Fainnount Dam-every
ounce of it. 0: None of it from britk yards, ponds, and
other stagnant pools.
The company will commence the ddivery as early in the
ensuing month as ice wdl be wanted; i the mean time ice
in any quantity and atany bour can Ie had at the office.
The prices will be-
25 centt per week for peck per day
371* b,1& i i
561 1 ,
25 cents per bushel, for & bushel and upwards.
The board are making such arrangements as will obviate

IMPROVEMENT & APPLICATION
Of Ward's Protractor System of
T HE publisher announces to his subscribers and to
the trade, that he will issue on or before the 1st
day of October next ensuing, No. 3 of his Application
System, containing the London and Philadelphia Au-
tumn and Winter Fashions for 1836-7. Great care
has been taken to get this publication out in a style of
superior excellence, and as he has cut garments in
strict accordance with the drafts laid down, he can
confidently promise that the application will produce
accuracy in fit, with taste and fashion.
The battering encomiums daily expressed by skil-
ful and fashionable Tailors, gives token of a,satisfac-
tion particularly gratifying; and the extent of patro-
nage already received, is an incentive to additional
exertion. Letters commendatory, containing orders
for the work, are neither "few nor far between," and
the resident tailors who have subscribed (and they are
many) freely express their conviction of its superiority
over all other systems.
The application of the additional and extra addi-
tional measures have received the decided approval
of all who have tested the principles--this important
feature is clearly explained, and a limited degree of
application is all that is required of the learner,whilst
any explanation or instruction will be imparted to
subscribers without additional charge.
Instruction in Garment Cutting by the publisher, or
through an agent, will be given; and the subscriber
will be furnished with a set of the work, at Ten Dol-
lars for the first, and Five Dollars per annum on each
subsequent year, payable in advance. Persons al-
ready acquainted wiih the Protractor System.and who
will thereby dispense with the expense and trouble
of teaching, will pay but Five Dollars per year (ir

The following sketch shows what the
female spirit is capable of achieving, int
cases of emergency. Mrs Duston must
have been a woman of extraordinary
This woman should be ranked amonp
the heroines cf antiquity. She was thtc
wife of Thos. Duston of Haverhill, Mas-
sachusetts. born in the year 1659, and
married 1677. She had altogether thir-
teen children. When the Indians, who
dwelt at the s-urces of the Merri-
mack river, aid he regionround about,
after a great freshet on the 15th o'
March, 1697, came down the river and
attacked Haverhill, she was confined to
bed with an infant only a week old. Her
husband catching the alarm from the
field, fled to the house antd consulted her
on the course he should pursue. She
calmly told him to leave her and her in-
fant to their fate, and to make his escape
if possible, with her other children. He
sent seven of his children on a path
through the woods, on the way to the,
garrison, and mounting his horse he fol-
lowed in the rear; with his musket he
kept the pursuing Indians at bay until he
found his charge in a place of safety at
the garrison. Before Mr. Duston reach-
ed the garrison, the Indians returned and
captured his sick wife and Mary Neif,
her nurse. They with other captives
took their march by order of the sava-
ges for the north. After they had tra-
velled for a few miles, the Indians found
the infant troublesome, and they took it
from the nurse and dashed its brains out
against a tree. Mrs. Duston was feeble
and wretched, but this outage nerved
her soul for every enterprise. After this
horrid outrage she wept no more; the
agony of nature drank the tear drop ere
it fell. She looked to heaven with a si-
lent prayer for succour and vengeance,
and followed the infernal group without
a word of complaint. At this instant
the high resolve was formed in her mind
and swelled every pulse in her heart.-I
They travelled on a distance, as she
thought of one hundred and fifty miles,
but perhaps from the course they took,
about seventy-five. The river had pro-
bably been broken up but a short time,
anid the canoes of the Indians were above
the falls on the Merrimack when they
commenced their journey to attack Ha-
verhill. About these falls, on an island
in this river, the Indians had a wigwam,
and in getting their canoes in order by
rowing ten miles up'the stream, became
much fatigued. When they reached the
place of rest they slept soundly. Mrs.
Duston did not sleep. The nurse andt
an English boy, a prisoner, were appri-
sed of her design, but were not of much
use to her in the execution of it. In Ihe
stillness of the night she rose atnd went
out of the wigwam to test the soundness
and security of savage sleep. They
moved not ; she said they were
to sleep till the last day. She returned,
took one of their hatchets, and despatch-
ed ten of them in a moment, each with
a single blow. An Indian woman who
was rising when she struck her, fled
with her probable death wound-and an
Indi9o ?.i w,,i desio-nectlvl spared; for
the avenger of blood was a woman and-'-
mother, and could not deal a death blow
upon a helpless child. She surveyed
the carnage ground by the light of the
fire, which she stirred up after lie deed
was done; and catching a few handfulls
of roasted corn, she commenced her
journey; but on reflecting a moment,she
thought the people of Haverhill would
believe her tale as the ravings of mad-
ness when she should get home, if ever
that time might come; she therefore re-
turned and scalped the slain: then put
the nurse and English boy into the ca-
noe, and with herself they floated down
the falls, when she landed and took to
the woods, keeping the river in sight,
which she knew must direct her on her
way home. After suffering incredible
hardships by hunger, cold, and fatigue,
she reached home, to the surprise arind
joy of her husband, children and friends.
The General Court of Massachusetts ex-
amined her story, and being satisfied
with the truth of it, took her trophies,
the scalps, and gave her fifty pounds.-
The people of Boston made her many
presents. All classes were anxious to
see the heroine; and they found her as
modest as brave.
[From the London Mirror.]
Napoleon was accustomed, says a re-
cent writer, to wear a coat of mail under
his clothes, and which he very rarely
went without. On his departure for
Belgium, he thought it best to guard
against those dangers with which he was
threatened, having all Europe league
against him, by every means in his pow-
er. He, accordingly, sent to a clever
workman, and asked him if he thought
himself competent to make a coat of
mail of such a texture that no weapons
whatever could penetrate. On the arti
ficer answering in the affirmative, Bona
parte agreed to give him 18,000 francs,
the sum asked. On the day fixed, the
man brought his work to the palace.-
Napoleon quickly examined it, and or-
dered the workman to put it on himself.
The man obeyed. Napoleon then took
two pistols, saying, "We shall now see
if this coat of mail is of the texture you
promised me." He fired first at his
breast; the cuirass resisted. "Turn
round." The man obeyed; the second
ball struck his back, and with the same
result. The poor artificer, half dead
with fright, thought that these trials
would be sufficient, but he was mistaken
in his calculation. Bonaparte next arm-
ed himself with a long fowling-piece,and
made the same experiment on the shoul
ders, back, and breast of the poor tremb-
ling patient. Hapily the cuirass resisted,
and saved the inventor from so cruel a
trial. "How much am I to pay," said
Napoleon, "after this noble exploit?"--
"Eighteen thousand francs," stammered
out the frightened artificer, almost depri-
ved of his senses. "No such thing, sir,"
replied Napoleon, "I shall give you thir-
ty-six thousand;" and gave an order on
his treasurer for that amount.
One of Bonaparte's greatest misfor-
tunes, says M. de Bourrienne, consisted
in his not believing in friendship, and not
feeling the necessity of loving. How of-
ten has he exclaimed in my hearing,
"Friendship is but a word; I love no one:
-- _I- t _#. ... T_ _- t, .
ance. Look y', liourrittnne, we may
leave tenderheartedness to the womtt-t-
ihat is their affair; but no sensililir y for
ine it is necessary to be film-lo harv
the heart of adamant; otherwise let r
one meddle with war or politics!"'
When Napoleon was in Egypt, and ii
specting the country, he took advant5
of a low tide, traversed the Red Sea, an.:
gained the opposite side; but on his r-
turn, night overtook him, and he ran tI.-
.eatest danger of perishing, precisely i",
the same manner as Pharaoh.
Napoleon, in his campaign against:
Prussia, having found at Potsdam t:,e
sword of Frederick the Great, the beki
which this monarch wore during thi
seven years' war, and the grand insignia
of his orders, claimed, on taking pos-
ses-don of these trophies, "I prefer them
to all the treasures of the King of Prus-
sia-I will setrd them to my veterans of
the camrnpaigns of Hanover: the governor
of the Invalids will guard them as a cer-
tificate of the victories of the grand ar-
my, and of the revenge which was taken
for the disasters at Rosbach."
Among the other costly relics belonging
to one of the richest convents of Valla-
dolid, there was a brick of massive gold,
of nearly one foot in length by an inch
thick, which contained a thornsaid to
be from the crown which Christ wore
on the cross. It was presented to Na-
poleon by one of his generals, and he
received it; but taking out the thorn,
"There," said he, "give that back to the
monks-I keep the brick."
When Jerome Bonaparte, King. of
Westphalia, passed through Warsaw, on
his way to Moscow, in tihe campaign of
1812, lie gave a dinner, at which he had
soldiers holding upright, around the ta-
ble, branches of cherry trees laden with
fruit; these formed a sort of grove,
which extended over the head of himself
and his guests, from which they gather-
ed the fruit for their desert.
At the time when private letters were
opened by the orders of Napoleon, a

proved to be written in Hebrew. The
clerks having no knowledge of this an-
cient language, a Jew was sent fot to in-
terpret it. On reading the letter, he be-
trayed great embarrassment, and wished
to be excused the translation, but the se-
cretaries were determined. The Jew,
who shook with fear, then read the fol-
lowing translation:--"Blackguards that

fool enough to conspire against you and
your paltry town, I should hazard my
plots in a letter? No; while the present

During the reign of Napoleon, an arti-
cle was written in an English Jonrnal,
stating, when the troops heard it reported
that the French had landed at Dover,
they gave three huzzas! and were in
hopes of giving a good account of the
invaders. This notice appeared in the
Publiciste, in the form ofa faithful trans-

English troops in the sense of vivat!
which, it asserted, was not the true
meaning; but, on the contrary, that huz-

Publiciste exposed the ignoratice of the
Gazette de France, and, in proof of it,

Bonaparte interfered, and sent an article
to be inserted in the Moniteur. saying,
that the editor of the Publiciste was an
ignorant fool, for lie ought to have known
that a word might have two meanings,
but that his malevolence was well known,
as well as his attachment to the corrupt-

mit the black-leg garrison to make a sortie at the

set their cheating aparatus. Some tried to hide
under an old bed, and others actually got out thro'
the roof of the house. Some, said an officer,"clung
to the rafters and bannisters of the upper stairs, like
rats in a wharf cellar at high water." The names
of all taken were recorded, and all but two, who
were supposed to be owners of the "properties,"
were discharged by the officers. The trial of the
owners will take place on Wednesday, they being
in the mean time under bonds of $200 each. Two
"roulette wheels" and two trunks, containing all
the tools of the nefarious trade, were seized and are

The Western Luminary" relates an instance
of most surprising sagacity in a horse, who seeing
another horse in affright, dragging a cart into the
water beyond his depth, ran after him, seemed to
whisper something into his ear, and then turning to-
wards the shore, by his neighing induced him to
turn and follow him. No doubt can of course be
entertained of the truth of the story, as it was
brought before a meeting of the Plymouth and Ta-
mar Humane Society. Such a nag is worth own

its judgraent. There is, from the nature of our
institutions,one last peaceable resort, one conclusive
expedient, for the development and pronunciation
of sovereign pleasure: -the'election of Delegates
to the Convention in November next is the
appointed anl impartial means for such an appeal:
- let us unhesitatingly abide the issue, and let the
giants of monopoly look to it.
Besides, in a measure of so much impression,
and in which, as is known, so many absent strang-
ers are interested, we owe it to the commonwealth
and to the democracy of the Union, to characterise
it by such fairness, elevation, and form as will sat-
isfy the world. The edict of a convention can
never be esteemed other than as the deliberate ad-
judication of the people of Pennsylvania. It will
not be obnoxious to t he imputation of haste, or
party distemper. It will attest the convictions of
a staid community, that the charter is a fraud upon
their rights, was sought for andl yielded against
their known will, and cannot, without a degrading
surrender of unalienable and inmlefeasible power, he
permitted to endure. It will be entitled to fulll
faith and credit" wherever heard of or received.-
It will bear within itself, like the declaration of
independence, incontestible evidence of its own
justice and necessity. All men will acknowledge
its impressive solemnity; republicans every where
will exult in it and be proud.
The fiat, too, once issued, will be irreversible.
Whateverjurisdiction might be claimed by the fed-
eral judiciary upon a law oe repeal enacted by the
General Assembly, none could be pretended as to
an organic institute of sovereignty. Indeed, the
Supreme Court of the United States will be less
apt hereafter'than heretofore to construe away the
independent capacities of the several States. It is
a remarkable fact as to this tribunal, so little ex-
posed to change, that President Jackson, as if de-
stined no'f merely to inculcate but to secure state
rights, has appointed, during his term of office, five
of its seven incumbents. So large and so fresh an
infusion of federative democracy exacts a revival of
confidence throughout the nation.
It does not become me to intimate the details
by which the Convention may enforce the fulfil-
ment of its will. They cannot fail to occur, when
the decision shall be fixed,-and although the sub-
ject is one on which I could not he more concise, I
fear that I have long since exhausted your wel-
come and your patience. Permit me, therefore,
to conclude by a single additional suggestion.
The Commonwealth should pay back every
cent of the bonus it has received. To which end,
our share of the surplus revenue of the of the United
States, estimated at more than two millions of
dollars, can be appropriated as soon as obtained:
-and the rest, if any, be made payable to the
agents or trustees of the extinguished corporation
in convenient'annual instalments, or in certificates
of a state stock bearing a fair rate of interest. My
wish would be to leave untarnished by doubt or
suspicion the absolute integrity of the proceeding:
to treat the money-price of freedom and political
power with the contempt which every virtuous
citizen must feel for it:--and to show that the
People of Pennsylvania, undebased by the love of
gold, and inaccessible to the approaches of corrup-
tion, reject with equal decision the Bank and its

and incorporated anew by the General Assembly; -
and this it is, gentlemen, which you term 'a ca-
lamity not ony not only to Pennsylvania, but to the na-
tion,' and on which my views as to the 'appropri-
ate remedy' are desired.
The event was an apprehended consequence of
the unhappy division in the ranks of democracy
at the last election. It is in perfectly good keep-
ing with the character of a legislative body whose
members scrambled into their seats against the
sense of a large majority of their constituents:
whose federal and antimasonic fragments owned
but one principle of cohesion, that of revenge
upon republican measures and men: whose pro.
ceedings violated the Constitution, endangered the
public peace, put in jeopardy the public works,
undermined the administration of public justice,
laughed to scorn the manifestations 4f public will,
and, inoculated as it were with the virus of the
gambler, profligacy wasted the public treasure.-
Such an assembly could not be expected to re-
member the national verdict recorded against the
national bank, nor that this verdict was mainly
pronounced from the ballot boxes of Pennsylva.
nia. Such an assembly would naturally search
for modes of keenly wounding our democracy,
and they found the keenest in the enactment of
the charter. Such an assembly, in the conscious
absence of all merit, Vauld sordidly strive to pro-
tect themselves from the effects of popular indig-
nation, by cowering under the wing of some irre.
sponsible and bountiful power, and they tendered
their homage to the Bank of the United Stales.-
The 'calamity.' gentlemen, is the more poignant,
because we could and should have avoided it by
concentrating against the common foe the assaults
we made upon each other,
The legislature, though a minority one, was
constitutional; though unwise and inveterate, bad
in its views and worsein its motives, its enact-
ments challenge our obedience, and as good citi-
zens, we must submit to their operation until they
are regularly annulled. Did the act of incorpora-
tion import nothing more than an ordinary law,, a
body competent to make could repeal it, and the
"appropriate remedy" might be found in the
suffrage of a reforming people, at the worst, the
evil would be short-lived. But it is essentially a
contract, made by at least our nominal repre-
sentatives with numerous persons, nine tenths of
whom are strangers to our soil, and each of whom
contributed, in the payment of the bonus, some
portion of his private property in execution of his
share of its stipulations. Like every other contract,
it has not less than two parties, and, being in
operation, the consent of both is necessary to
change or cancel it; the rights which it imparted
are now absolutely vested; and the constitution of
the United States prohibits any state from passing
aslaw impairing the obligation of a contract.
Such, in brief and substantially, is the argument
in protection of the existing charter. We must
understand and appreciate its full force in order to
meet it advisedly and effectually.
I am aware that speculative writers deny the
competency of one legislature to impair the power
of its successor, or to grant away a franchise which
may not be recalled at discretion: but however in-
genious and plausible such a position may be made
to appear on paper, it is repelled by all history
and all practice. Every session of our own Gen-
oral Assembly ever convened, has acted irreconci-
lably with such a doctrine. The case is one in
which recourse to an extreme theory, ever so cap-
tivating, would be unwise.
I am also aware of the reasoning which appeals
to the first paragraph of the tenth section, Article
I. of the Constitution of the United States, declar-
ing, among other things, that "no state shill emit
bills of credit," and which, on that prohibition,
disputes th e competency of any State to empower
a creature of its own, a bank, to do what it cannot
perform itself, to issue notes. This is net a novel
suggestion. Many years ago, the point was made
and eamined examined before the highest judicial tribunal
of one, of the most enlightened members of the
confederacy, and it was then settled that the bills
of credit denounced by the constitution, were
those for the payment of which the faith of the
State only is pledged: such as were profusely
emitted during the life-struggle of the revolution-
and that ordinary notes drawn on the credit of a
particular fund, like the capital of a bank, are not
within the constitutional meaning. This decision
has, I believe, received very general, if not univer-
sal, acquiescence. Alt the legislatures of all the
States, our own most democratic ones. have con-
formed to its principles.
I am aware, also, also, of the natural and prevailing
impression that the next General Assembly might
be called upon to pronounce the incorporating act
null and void, and to provide criminal sanctions
against any attempt to exercise its faculties, on
the ground of its having been fraudulently, sur-
reptitiously, and corruptly obtained. Such a
movement, it is true, has a precedent on the legis-
latiye files, placed there and vehemently urged by
the very man who sprung the charter from his
t pocket upon an unwarned and unwary commu.
nity. The source of the precedent is enough to
destroy all confidence in in its value. It violates
fixed maxims; making declamation equivalent to
Sunroof: forfeiting private property and passing sea-

not debase our pursuit by any such hypocritical
pageantry and summary injustice. But could we
be reconciled to the attempt by reflecting on the
provocation, whst would be its sure result? An
executive Veto, unreversed'by two thirds in each
branch; Governor Ritner refusing his signature to
his own condemnation; and I presume you are
hardly charitable enough to anticipate that sudden
and adequate reformation or repentance, in the
Senate, which would act in his defiance.
What then, you will say, is to be done? Is the
"calamity" to be patiently endured during the al-
lotted term of thirty years? Are the people of
Pennsylvania conscious of a heavy wrong, so
shackled as to be unable to throw it off! No,
gentlemen, not so. I have adverted to a few of
the projects afloat, to show you what I conceive
to be their peculiar weakness: but there is one be-
hind, one at this time providentially in reach of
your ballots, liable to no reproach or embarrass-
ment, a frank, generous, and lofty proceeding,
whose real dignity and impressiveness are com-
mensurate with the magnitude of the occasion.
Several months before the plan to rekindle the
spent volcano was started, our citizens bad pro-
claimed their determination to resume the delegated
powers of government, to reconstruct the social &
political edifice, and, as it were, to begin afresh
with all the lights and all the improvements of
experience. Of this, the whole world had ample
notice. The legislative act to provide for calling
a Convention, bore date the 14th of April, 1835,
and was immediately promulgated. The seal of
popular decision was definitively affixed to the
movement by the elective franchise, on the second
Tuesday of October, 1835. From that period,
they who accepted, upon any terms, a grant of any
portion of the powers of the people, social or po-
litical, and especially a grant of such enormous
and prolonged powers as are transferred in the
charter-powers, the loss of which enfeebles the
people, and the use of which makes the corpora-
tion their competitor in sovereignty--accepted
them in fraud of the contemplated Convention, or
subject to the reclamation of that body. The
principle is one of acknowledged and universal
justice. It is of daily application in determining
controversies between individuals, and only ac-
quires greater weight as it enters a higher sphere.
The design to effect vast and vital changes by the
Convention was avowed and notorious; perhaps
none floated more conspicuously upon the surge
of public sentiment and sanction, than a restric-
tion, if not a total denial, of the legislative compe-
tency to create monopolies; and yelt! between the
first great step to attain this object and its achieve-
ment, a phalanx rush into the Capitol, in advance
of the Convention, snatch up a mass of privileges
far surpassing all the pre-existing ones combined,
and hope, by this stolen march, to defeat a primary
and known purpose of the people! It may not,
must not be. No law, human or divine, no max-
im of expediency or right, forbids us to reclaim the
A Convention is the provided machinery of
peaceful revolution. It is the civilized substitute
for intestine war; the American mode of carrying
out the will of the majority; 'the unalienable and in-
defeasible right to alter, reform, or abolish their go-
vernment, in such manner as they may think pro.
per.' When ours shall assemble, it will possess,
within the territory of Pennsylvania, every attribute
of absolute sovereignty, except such Is may have
been yielded and are embodied in the constitution
of the United States. What may it not do? It
may re-organize our entire system of social ex-
istence, terminating and proscribing what is
deemed injurious, and establishing what is pre-
ferred. It might restore the institution of slavery
among us; it might make our penal code as bloody
as that of Draco; it might withdraw the charters
ot the cities; it might supersede a standing judi-
ciary by a scheme of occasional arbitration and
umpirage; it might prohibit particular professions
or trades; it might permanently suspend the privi-
lege of the writ of Habeas Corpus, and take from
us (as our late General Assembly made an entering
wedge to do) the trial by jury. These are fearful
matters, of which intelligent and virtuous freemen
can never be guilty; and I mention them merely
as illustrations of the inherent and almost bound-
less power of a Convention. The only effective
limits to its authority are the broad and unchange-
able rules of justice and of truth; and these, I have
already shown, do not hedge around the charter.
There are other considerations which recom-
mend the Convention strongly to my mind, as the

spirit the democracy of America expected the
wonders of renovation and reform he has since
achieved, a signal and overwhelming VETO.
It so happened, from special and private inci-
dents which I am not disposed to trouble you with,
that my legislative duties to the measure were per-
formed, unflinchingly and faithfully, without in-
volving me in the slightest chagrin or disappoint-
ment at its failure; .without abating one jot of my
attachment to the patriotic chief who inflicted the
coup de grace, and certainly without my imbibing,
even in the most zealous conflicts of debate, the
preposterous and puerile inclination to abandon
the great republican party to which my whole life
was devoted, in order to attach myself to the cause
of a corporation whose being, when contrasted
with the secure action of fundamental principles
throughout the entire structure of government,
was regarded by me as measurably insignificant.
From the moment of the Veto, the enraged
Board. heretofore discreet and plausible, tore off the
mask, stripped itself rapidly of all disguise, and
under the flimsy, pretext of being first assailed, en-
tered. at a bound and with bluster, into the arena
of political strife. The Chief Magistrate of the
country became the mark of its contumely and
vindictive thrusts. Town meetings were convened
to exasperate party. Bank banners were paraded
on every election ground. Official manifestoes,
equally arrogant and inflammatory, were issued.-
Legislation was to be overawed; the citizens in-
timidated, the elective franchise depreciated or
controlled, the country revolutionized! This was
a process of recharter which seemed to prostitute
the powers and to defeat the purpose of the corpo-
ration. It involved practices and pretensions ut-
terly irreconcilable with what were well known
to me to have been the pure objects and democratic
principles of its founders. It gave reality at once
to the vivid pictures drawn in Congress of the am-
bitious tendencies and dangerous influences of
such a monied agent. It threw .me irresistibly
back upon the pledge which, as a republican Sena-
tor I had openly given in that high sphere of rep-
resentative duty, and I witnessed and shared with
pride the manly and vigorous and triumphant re-
sistance by which its usurpations were'encountered
and finally prostrated.
Uncompromising hostility to all banks, is the
the extreme remedy to which the events of a few
years have drawn many of our wisest and most
prudent politicians. I am not prepared for so un-
discriminating a rule. The capacity ofthe people,
in the pursuit of happiness, to devise their own
organs and facilities, should be preserved unabated.
It is their right to be free to act. Experience may
teach us how effectually to regulate them, so as
to secure their advantages and to avoid their mis-
chiefs. But, uncompromising hostility to any
bank which shall start from its prescribed path
and strict subordination, shall venture to mingle
in politics, and shall, covertly or boldly, formally
or informally, gather, exasperate, and lead party
for the attainment of its ends, is, in my estimation,
an imperative obligation upon those who desire to
perpetuate the virtue and freedom which charac-
terize our social and political system. The same
rule is applicable to every creation of organic or
municipal law. Derangement, collision, and de.
struction, can alone follow upon wilful and per-
verse deviations from the legally allotted orbits of
duty. The Judge who perverts the moral inliu-
ence of his station, or blemishes his [ermine with
the stain of faction; the ministerial officer who
warps in the exercise ofhis functions to accommo-
dale his private antipathies or attachments: the
Juror who batters his verdict for a vote; and the
corporation which makes its combination and its
efforts the means of effecting unauthorized or for-
bidden aims; are all dangerous and should all be de-
nounced. Else is the r public at the mercy of its
own instruments; every man entrusted with office
is an unchecked tyrant or corruptionist, and every
corporation a conspiracy with mercenaries already
banded to resist, subvert, or dictate the law.
The people of America can never again incur
the risk of a National Bank. buch an agent may
help to equalize their exchanges, purify their cur-
rency, and facilitate their transfers; but it is better
that these undoubtedly important objects should
be accomplished in a mode less economical, less
certain, and less simple-nay, it is better that they
should not be accomplished at all, than hazard
another fierce struggle for the ascendancy of go-
vernment, of law, and of the popular will, like
that in which they recently conquered. Provi-
dence, among its numerous merciful dispense
tions, ordained this struggle to occur while yet
taken prisoners; among the latter is Acevedo, chief
of thp .mhan mtf;ni(, Anlresa Casteneda, brevet
commandant of the battalion; tumirmkzr-cn -anu.ug,
the company of Taacachi, and a foreigner named
Laprelladi, captain of artillery. The remainder of
their force were entirely routed. The loss on the
part of the government were 3 killed and 6 woun-
The day succeeding this engagement, Acevedo,
Casteneda, Ramirez, and Lapreladi were shot; a
council of war had been held upon the other offi-
cers but the result has not transpired.
Thle commandant of artillery of the federal troops
succeeded in making his escape from Etla and has
arrived in this city. He informs us that the great-
est agitation prevails in the interior of Mexico, oc-
casioned by the revolutionary movement of Oajaca;
disturbances are daily anticipated.
The official accounts from the States, on the
other hand, directed to the general government and
published in the Diario, declare most directly that
the greatest tranquility prevailed throughout.
A considerable number of criminals have been
condemned and executed in Mexico during the
month of July last. Among them we see the
name of a certain Jose Maria Ortega, a grenadier of
the battalion of Mentiilan, charged with homicide

Voluntary donations continue tobe made through-
out all the states of Mexico, to assist the govern-
ment to meet the exigencies growing out of the
war in Texas. We have made a calculation ap-
proximating to the actual amount of subscribers,and
find ten-thousand signatures, but the total sum sub-
scribed is not more than from five to six hundred
dollars. We feel not the slightest astonishment that
no more has been raised, as the highest donations
are not above one dollar, and the greatest number
average less than one bit (121 cents.) When we
consider what little patriotism is exhibited here by
the Mexicans in a cause which they denominated a
national one, we are amazed that they should still
cherish the hope of subjugating Texas. The Tex-
ians received a very different sort of response when
they appealed to their brethren of the United States,
for dollars subscribed by the Mexicans we gave
The Diario of the 24th July informs us that a
pamphlet is circulating in the capital, entitled "The
Ministry made known," said to have been printed
at Oajaca, in Valdes's office, but which was really
printed in Mexico. This document is wholly occu-
pied with censuring the acts of the cabinet. M. Mau-
gino is accused of being the cause of all the trou-
bles and dissensions which have formerly existed.
The Secretary of War, Tornel, is called a coward,
and unworthy of the place which he occupies. This
pamphlet appears to have given great uneasiness to
the ministry, if we may judge from the articles pub-
lished in the official paper against it.
From the official proclamations relative to the
conspirators of the state ate of Oujaca, and the South-
ern province,, and the movements of the federalists
in Mexico, received by the general government, it
appears that numerous arrests have been made since
Ihe battle of Etla.
We have receircd the following account of a
most atrocious deed from credible authority. We
record it with feelings of shame for the race of white
A party of Creek Indians, consisting of eleven
warriors, and about the same number of women and
children, attempted, a short time since, to pass the
Georgia frontier with a view of joining the hostile
Seminoles. They were pursued and intercepted
by a party of Georgians from Lee county, who at-
tacked them and killed nearly all the men. When
it was perceived that both defence and escape were
hopeless,two Indian girls, of about sixteen or seven-
teen years of age, who are described as being of an
interesting appearance, rushed towards an officer of
the party and laid each a hand on his arm in token
of requiring his protection. The officer understood
the sign, which is a common one among the abo-
rigines, and assured them that he would answer for
their safety. Two of the Indian warriors having
escaped, and the officer being obliged to go in pur-
suit of them, he left his prisoners in the care of a
man named Jenkins. During his absence this
wretch took the two girls, tied them together by the
hair of their heads, and deliberately beat out their
brains, while they begged in vain for mercy in their

hollowed its 'back, curled its tail, and in a moment
after fell down into a deep sleep. Several scientific
gentlemen were. immediate called, who pronounced
it a genuine case of somnambulism, brought on by
a large charge of animal magnetism fluid escaping
by means of the conductor from the gentleman to
the hog. While in this state, the gentlemen pre-
sent amused themselves by speaking to the animal.
"Chook, chook, chook?" asked Dr. --, in a very
loud voice, but no answer was illicited. At last the
Magnetizer, in tones scarcely above a whisper, pro-
ceeded to interrogate the somnamble-"Chook,
chook, chook?" to which it immediately replied,
"Grumph, grumph!!" Certainly this is a most ex-
traordinary feat of magnetical skill, and vainly
should we seek a similar one in the records of the

Foreign Segar Trade of the U. States.-It ap-

of Segars from foreign ports, from the first day of
October, 1834, to the 30th of September, 1835, was
no less than seventy six millions seven hundred
and sixty one thousand! of, which seventy five
millions twenty six thousand came from Cuba-the
whole paying duty on the invoice valuation of eight
hundred and thirty-six thousand seven hundred and
forty-three dollars. During the same time the ex-
ports of foreign segars were nine millions six hun-

affairs. Soon after he had occasion to look into
the drawer, and the whole ofthe cash had disap-
peared. The alarm was nimediat.ly given; mes-
sengers were dispatched to the various Banks, that
the notes might be stopped if an attempt should be
made to have them changed, while the Broker
himself, in a state of no little agitation, repaired to
the Mayor's office to invoke the aid of thle police.
Quite a hubbub reigned in the ,money market,' and
rumor had it that half a dozen brokers at least had
been plundered. The mystery, however, soon dis-
appeared, when one of the gentlemen connected
with the establishment came in, and on enquiring
-the cause of the excitement, stated that before going
out he had shifted the money from one drawer to
another for safer keeping, and had forgotten to men-
tion the circumstance. The drawer was opened,
and there lay the 'notes, quietly reposing uncon-
* scious of the turmoil they had caused. The relief
of the Broker, and the amusement of his lately
sympathising friends, may be imagined.

BIamiNouax.-A place called Birmingham, has
n'" r t- t spr s -Bes~imt
Connecticut, and is, we understand, in an amazing
flourishing condition, there being already five or six
extensive manufactories established there, besides
more than a hundred tenements. It is intended to
be made almost entirely a manufacturing town.
MURnIERRn AnRESTED.-About twelve months
since, John Whitaker was killed in this city by
Merrill and Levi Miller. The former was arrested,
tried and convicted, and is now under sentence of
death in the jail of this city-the latter made his
escape. A month or two since, the Executive of
the State issued a proclamation offering a reward
for his apprehension. On Tuesday last, Constable
Murray received intimation that he was concealed
in the house of a female relative in the suburbs of
the city. He immediately repaired, with his as-
sistants, to the house, rushed up stairs, discovered
the object of their search and secured him before he
could make any resistance, had he intended it. He
is now in the same dungeon with his father, and
will probably be tried at the next Court.-Raleigh
Register, Aug. 30.
.4 Sho-wer of Frogs.-We find an article in a
late number of a French Journal, which mustprove
a bonne bouche for the lovers of the marvellous It
is stated that Professor Pontus of Cahors, has made
a communication to some learned society, which
completely establishes the fact that frogs occasion-
ally descend from the clouds in showers! He says,
that in the summer of 1804, hs was proceeding in
the Diligence from Abby to Thoulouse, when at 4.
o'clock in the afternoon, a dense black cloud sud-
denly appeared in the horizon and soon overspread
the heavens. It was attended with thunder and
lightning, and soon burst on the heads of the hap-
less travellers, w ere not sheltered from its fury.
But what added to the alarm and terror, which were
experienced by some of the passengers, was to be-
hold amidst the heavy shower of rain, multitudes of
small frogs, descending from the clouds. Two
travellers who entered the Diligence at this time, to
screen themselves from the storm, had their cloaks
covered with these amphibious creatures. The whole
road for miles through which the vehicle passed,and
the adjoining fields were literally alive with them.
The smallest were abouhe smallest were about the size of a cubic inch,
and the largest about two cubic"inches, and were
probably from two to three months old. The quan-
tities of these animals were immense; in some places
the road was covered by them them o the depth of several
inches-they being heaped upon one another.-

Diving.-A certain Lorenzo Giordano, of Fiu-
mara, has found the means of remaining for six
hours at a time in tha deepest places at the bottom
of the sea, with the power of walking at the rate of
a mile an hour. For his secret he asks the sole right
of doing this for two years, and the half of what he
finds in his submarine peregrinations.
Americans abroad.-The Boston Post states
that the two mo t clistinguishrd lawyers in London
were born in Boston-viz: Lord Lyndhurst and
Sargent Talfourd, (author of the new popular tra-
gedy of Ion.) The latter, we believe, has two sis-
ters in that city now, while the former has a sister,
the widow of the late Gardiner Green, Esq.

by Sheridan Knowles, has a capital of $3,000,000.

ARsENiC.-M. Schweiger Seidel has invented a
very simple method of ascertaining the presence of
arsenic in food, &c. however small the quantity
may be. We puts a portion of the matter to be
tried, and double its weight of soda, into a little
glass tube; he closes the open extremity of the tube
with blotting paper, and heats the other end with a
taper; the arsenic is sublimated in afew moments,
and adhereto the sides of the tube in the part
which is not heated.
JOHuTSTOWN, N. Y. August the 18.-Mr.- ,
of----, in this county, a soldier of the revolu-
tion and of advanced age, was on his return from
-- in company with a neighbor, he fell from
his wagon and broke his neck. He died almost in-
stantly, breathing but once after being taken from
the ground. He had obtained some two or three
gallons of nuM or WHISKE at ---and on his
way home drank freely until he became stupified,
and when within a short distance of the latter place,
the sad catastrophe happened. His wife, when his
dead body was brought into the house, and she in-
formed of what had taken place, remained in her
bed, and the first question she asked was where
is the RUM?" No such enquiry, as how or when
the melancholy event had happened? No! But
where is the jug of tum?"---Johnstown Ban-
.l Remarkable Mlurder.-Some little time after
this, I saw three women buried alive for drowning
their husbands; they had, it seems, crossed the Mos-
co in a boat, all three together, in search of their
husbands, whom they found all drunk in a public
house, and endeavoring to persuade them to go
home, were severely beaten by them; however, by
the assistance of some other people, they got them
at last into the boat, where they fell asleep; the
wives, to be revenged on their husbands for beating
them, when the boat had reached the middle of the
river, threw them one after another into the river,
and after they had drowned them, they came ashore
very unconcerned. The matter immediately came
to light; they were seized, tried condemned, and or-
dered to be put under ground up to their necks,
there to remain till they died; two of them lived
ten, and the other eleven days; they spoke the first
