"Curiosity induced us to witness the ordeal
through which- one of these Chests was put last
evening; and the result, we must say, has been highly
satisfactory and confirmatory of the invulnerable
fire-prool qualities of the Asbestos Safes. The one
on which the experiment was made was placed in,
the centre of a large pitch pine fire, where it was
allowed to remain for an hour. It was then taken
out, and when partially cool, opened, and all the
books and papers which were then inside found in a
perfect state of preservation. Among the other pa-
pers was a 100 dollar bank note, which came out as
good as new. As this practical proof of the superi.
otity of these Chests over all others is better than
whole columns written in commendation of them,we
have only to add that W. A. Violett, ol 69 Magazine
street, is the Agent for this city, ani that he has a
variety of the Asbestos Safes on hand."

Wilhelmine profited by the permission. and in
this attitude of silent admiration, remained some
minutes in contemplation before the great man,
who lent himself to it with complaisance.
A light blow on the cheek, drew her from her
ecastacy; she trembled in blushing, and the Emperor
laughing., re-seated himself beside her, and amused
him-elf in making her relate how, still a child, the
exploits of the first consul struck her young imagi-
nation; how she had heard of his victories in E-
gypt and Italy; how shehad been told that in Fiance
he had re-established religion and punished the
wicked; how he had finally become Emperor and
had been crowned by thel Pope. She knew the-
terror which his name inspired to Germany, where
each time that he appeared, he forced all the kings
to ask for peace; and always in her dreams, she
dreamed of tie Emperor Napoleon, and she was
sure that she should one day see him, because she
had so often prayed to God to obtain this favor. At
last, in the morning she had recognized him from
his portraits; anrid, nevertheless, added she. "it seems
to me at present, that you do not resemble him at
all" The Emperor listened to this simple relation,
caressing one of the little hands of The young girl,
which he held in his own; pleased to contemplate
in this ingenuous mind, as in a pure mirror, the
reflection of his glory and image, magnified by the
admiration of an adoring people.
Suddenly a cloud passed anew over his brow.
He fixed upon the young German that eagle eyed
which seemed to penetrate to the bottom of all
hearts, and in his brief and imperious manner, said
"Did your mother permit you to come alone
"My mother," said she mournfully shaking her
head, "alas I have none."
The look of the Emperor grew milder.
"An orphan," replied he; and who then are these
women that I saw this morning with you,"
"My nurse and foster sister. When the city of
Vienna was threatened with a bombardment by the
French, all the pupils of the school, where I was,
were sent to their relations; and I, whose father
was in the army, and who had no connections in
Vienna, asked to be conducted to my nurse; hoping
that I should be more in safety in this lonely spot
than in the city. My poor nurse! she was so
pleased when the gentleman came, to offer to con-
duct me to your Majesty! She said to me, 'go my
child-go see the Emperor of the French-it will
bting you good fortune.'
The Emperor smiled anew with satisfaction,-
but soon resuming that kind of bluntness, under
which he commonly concealed an emotion to which
he did not like to give way, *
"iDo you know," said he, changing the subject,
"that you speak, French admirably; one would nev-
er take you for an Austrian."
"I am not an Austrian, sire," replied she with
animation; "my mother was an Alsacian and my
ather is from Prague."
"Indeed! in this case you are half my subject,
and consequently under my protection. For this
eason," added he seriously, "you ought to remain
here no longer."
He rang the bell and sent for his first valet-de-
"Constant," said he, "get a carriage ready and
prepare yourself to accompany Mile. Z., with
he respect due to a noble and virtuous lady, the
laughter of a brave officer." The valet answered
by a respectful inclination, and withdrew to exe-
cute the orders which he had received. The Em-
peror then approached Wilhelmine, who had arisen
at the same time as he, and taking her hand, re-
garded her a moment, shaking his head. "You
ire an enthusiast," said he, "a dangerous malady
among women, especially when they are young
.nd pretty and have neither mother nor husband
o protect them. Therefore, tell your father to
aarry you immediately." At this unexpected
counsel, the poor Wilhelmine blushed and burst
into tears. "Well, well, what is there in this to
tighten you! With such a face and a pretty for.
oune, suitors will not be wanting, and nothing pre-
ents your choosing one to your taste."
"My father is without fortune, sire," said she,
trying to overcome her confusion.
"What matter! Am not I here? Have you
forgotten that your visit to the Emperor Napeleon
ras to bring you good fortune? She joined hter
hands in a movement of gratitude, but a gesture of
Napoleon checked the thanks upon her lips. The
oor opened and Constant announced that all was
sady. The Emperor then made a sign wit his
and to the young girl, and ditmissed her with
these simple words-",Good night my child, sleep
well." Leaning against the wainscotting, he saw
er depart, her heart palpitating and her eyes moist
This interview had awakened in him recollec-
ons a long time dormant, the pure and sweet emo-
ons of his first love, when a simple lieutenant of
artillery he obtained of a beautiful girl of his own
ge, a secret meeting at the break of day, the plea-
ures of which consisted in eating together upon
he same bench some cherries freshly gathered.
ilas! a long time since, devouring thoughts and
'ithering cares had driven away these simple
measures. A tong time since the smiling vegeta-
on which adorned the side of the mountain, had
disappeared under the beds of lava successively
ooled; but for a moment the fugitive breeze came
o bring him the distant emanations of the flowers
which heretofore embalmed it. This was, how-
rer, the work of some minutes. "Come," said he
o himself, passing his hand over his forehead,
this is tnot the time to give myself up to such
hildishness;" and returning to his cabinet, he re-
uimed the thread of his despatches.
On the morrow, early in *he morning, a courier
arrived in a'gallop at the little village of -
lighted before the house of Wilhelmine, and gave
Usher a package, sealed with the Imperial arms.
rhe package contained 300,000 francs, in bank
otes, and a letter addressed, not to the young
irl, but to her father.
M. the Baron de Z- .
"His Majesty, the Emperor, having had occa-

ou to think as soon as possible-isolation being

is of innocence, beauty and candour."

1TO THE MEDICAL PROFESSION IN
THE UNITED STATES.
&klect Medical Library and Bulletin of Medical
Edited by John Bell, M. D., Lecturer on Materia
Medical and Therapeutics.
TrHE attention of the Medical Faculty is respect.
Lully invited to this periodical, The fifth year
is now in course of successful publication; since the
commencement of this work,26 large octavo volumes,
closely and handsomely printed, have been issued.-
The works in the four first years, or first series, from
November 1836 to October 1840, were published
monthly, under the title of" Select Medical Library
and Eclectic Journal of Medicine," at 10 per an-
num; or uniformly bound in annual sets of of 6 vois.
each, for $13, a few sets of which are yet at the pub
lishers' disposal. The present or fifth year, being
the second series, is published quarterly, chalmnging
the name of the" Journal" to Bnlletin of Medical
Science." at $5 per annum, payable in advance.
The Library department is continued on the same
plan as heretofore, with these exceptions : each nt..-
bar consists, complete, of one or more approved
works on some branch of Medicine, including, of
course, Surgery and Obstetrics. The size of the num-
bers will necessarily vary; but in a year, subscribers
will receive by mail, fourteen hundred pages of
closely printed matter, done up in strong ceverswith
labelled muslin backs; thus obviating the immediate
necessity of full binding.
To each number of the LIBRARY will be append-
ed a BULLETIN of MEDICAL SCIENCE, being
a record of the discoveries and positive improve-
aents in Medicine and Surgery, and their kindred
departments. It will also contain notices of new
works in Medicine, at home and abroad. Published

THE RIGHT OF SUFFRAAie.-Werecently en:
deavored to show the injustice and unreasona-
bleness of the doctrine of the "Native Ameri-
nan Associations," and of those of kindred
feelings, who woulil cause a man to forfeit his
political rights, altogether, or for a long peri-
od, by removing from the country or district of
his birth. The observations before made had
reference principally to the individuals them-
selves, who might be so disfranchised. We
propose now to add some remarks on the gen-
eral tende'.icy of the system, -and the motives
which induce some to advocate it.
As those who enjoy hereditary wealth are
under no necessity, and generally do not find
sufficient inducement, to cause them to mi-
grate from the neighborhood of their nativity,
while the poor and the industrious are obliged
to migrate, either because of over population,
or the varying circumstances which make em-
ployment at one time more abundant and at
another more scarce than usual, in each partic-
ular place,-it follows, as we all know, that
the poor and industrious change their plee of
residence more frequently than the wealthy and
the idle. Consequently the introduction of re-
strictions, such as twe have referred to, tends
to increase the political power of the idle and
wealthy class, and diminish that of the mass.
Therefore, those who are under the mista-
ken notion that it is dangerous to give to every
portion of the community equal rights, and
equal participation in government, leaving to
wealth and learning only all the immense nat-
ural influence which they possess, without the
superadded weight of artificial distingtions-
those who think this is dangerous, are always
disposed to place emigrants under constitution-
al disabilities. It is natural for aristocracy to
do this. What should be the course of an en-
It should be a steady adherence to the max-
im whose truth is proved by all experience,
that the only security for the protection and de-
fence of the rights and interest of all classes
alike, the only guarantee that the wealth of
the rich and the liberty and equal rights of the
poor will be alike cherished by the laws, is to
be found in giving to all, whether emigrants or
natives, an equal voice in the government:-
that to destroy this, is to destroy the balance
which nature has established, and to comn-
mence a system of prerogative, which, when
it has taken root, will be likely to extend itself
till it reduces the mass to the miserable condi-
tion of substantial if not nominal slavery.
THE TARIFF -The question of the revision
of the Tariff it seems is to be agitated at the
approaching session of Congress. One of the
reasons for this course is that the government
will be short of money to meet its elpenses.-
This is highly probable, but it would not be so
if tie administration were to adopt that system
of rigid retrenchments which the whigs profes-
sed to advocate before the presidential election
We presume, however, that no one now sus-
pects them of an intention of carrying intoeffect
thies intimations which they then gave out.
Another motive for the revision of the tariff,
is the adherence of many to the doctrine of se-
curing the prosperity of the people by restric-
tions on trade. This doctrine has been gradu-
ally losing ground, for some years past
throughout the civilized world. It is therefore
not very likely to be re-established in the Uni-
ted States. Indeed the advocates of a high
tariff generally admit that free trade is the true
policy of the whole world, and they only pro-
pose restrictions .to counteract the restrictions
of other nations. If this be the object, such re-
strictions should not be enacted as permanent,
but only to endure in reference to each nation
until such nation shall relax its system in ref-
erence to the admission of our products.
In case any change shall be made, we pre.
sime that the one which would best satisfy all
classes and men of all views, would be to pro-
vide by law that the duties upon all the pro-
ducts of any nation should be as high as the
highest which that nation should impose on
atny of our products, and should be reduced as
those were reduced; the carrying out of the
system being left to the Secretary of the Trea-
sury, or to a board selected for the purpose.-
Thus the United States would offer an exam-
ple of a disposition to reciprocity in freedom of
trade, which would be likely not only greatly
to benefit ourselves, but to lead the way to a
more liberal course amoug nations in general.
The gentlemen recently appointed by the
Court of Quarter Sessions as appraisers of the
abutneute and property adjoining, for the site
of a free bridge over the Schuylkill near Fair-
mount, have I aided twenty-one thousand
dollars for the whole ol'saiid property including
the abutments, the whole of which property to
be used solely for the bridge atnd the conveni-
ence and safety of the public.
WORKS or LORD BoLtIeoiBOKE.-Messrs.
Carey & Hart have just issued a most valua-
ble contribution to our literture,in a complete
edition of the works of that distinguished au-
thor and statesman, Henry St. John, 4lord
Viscount Bolingbroke. The work is prefaced
by a life of the author, containing much infor-
mation relative to his personal and public
character, with extracts from his correpbnd.-
ence, and prepared expressly for the American
edition, the groundwork being Goldsmith's
sketch, and filled up with materials drawn from
'various authentic sources.
The work is in four octavo volumes, beauti-
fully printed on fine paper, and embellished
with an engraving from Kneller's .portrait of
the author; and the binding, by J. G. Russell,
is in admirable style--riet and yet chaste in
the extreme. The whole book is highly credi-
table to the liberal publishers, and will form a
valuable addition to the library, both from the
quality of its contents and the beautiful form
in which they are presented.

evening a very interesting meeting was held at
the Rev. M. Barnes's church, on the occasion of
the 334 Anniversary of the Pennsylvania Bible So-

gentlemen. From the reports made it appears that
within the last thirty-seven years, twenty one
millions of bibles have been distributed. That the
British and Foreign Bible Society, the first in the
world, was organized in 1804. The Pennsylvania
Bible Society, the first in America was organized
in 1808. Forty thousand destitute families in
Pennsylvania werd supplied with bibles in 18?7
and 1830. Twenty.lhree thousand bibles and tes-
taments have been circulated during the last year.
and that two hundred and eighty seven thousand
volumes have been distributed since the organiza-
tion of the Pennsylvania Bible Society. The whole
of the proceedings were of a very interesting char-

THE AMtiTran AraicAx MEETISN.-The Ami-

afternoon, and excited no little attention. Some
of them are very finely built, and possess great
physical strength. Cinque, however, is evidently
the master-spirit. The history of this African is
quite extraordinary, and aie is said to be regarded
by the others with much interest and affection.-
These negroes have all been at Farmington, Con-
necticut, acquiring as rapidly as possible, a know
ledge of the English tongue, also the rbdiments
of an English education. Some of them are quite
proficient, and can hold a tolerable conversation in
the language of this country. The meeting was
one of considerable interest. Cinque is describ-
ed to have a wife and three children in Africa.-
,He was a planter of rice, and lived in a large
town in the Meadi country. He was eized by
four men, carried down to the coast, and sold to a
Spaniard. Several of the blacks are able to read
passages in the bible, and bavy manifested the
greatest interest in the progress of being educat-
ed. They express themselves as deeply grateful
for the kindness that has been shown them, and
give animated and interesting accounts of the
scenes on board the Amistad. The exercises of
the evncuing were appropriate. and well calculated
to excite a lively interest in the fate of the liberat-
Among the most remarkable, we may mention
singing, both in Engli.h andi Mendi. Kinna de-

PHILADELPHIA, May 22d 1841,
GENTLEMN-I have had the honor to receive
your communication aA a Committee of the
"Old Ironsides Club of the City and County
of Philadelphia," accompanied by their reso-
lutions passed at their stated meeting held on
the 15tth inst.
In your communication you remark that "the
Association being composed of a large number
of the Democratic citizens of the city and
county of Philadelphia, entertaining the fullest
confidence in my patriotism and mental endow-
ments,as well as my honest and consistent at-
tachment to the,pure fundamental principles
fo the democratic faith, as promulgated by
that great disciple of liberty,Thomas Jefferson,
and perpetuated by Andrew Jackson, have
placed my name before the nation as a candi-
date for the Chief Magistracy of a free and a
great people," and you ask whether I will "al-
low them in conjunction wtth my de nocratic
fellow-citizens throughout the Union, to pre-
sent my name to the people for their adoption
through a Democratic National Convention;"
and further, that "you are instructed to obtain
my views of the great democratic principles
which have distinguished the party of the
people since the days of 'the great Apostle of
Democracy,' in order that the people of the
Union may be satisfied that I am as I ever
have been, the firm, consistent and devoted
friend of equal laws, equal rights, political,
civil and religious liberty."
For this distinguished preference of my fel-
low,citizens of the city and county of my nati-
vity, I beg leave o return, throug'i you, their
committee, my sincere and grateful thanks,and
to express to them a hope that before the period
shall arrive for the assembling of a Democratic
National Convention, our fellow-citizens may
be enabled to present a name more worthy of
this high distinction, which may so readily be
found in the great and patriotic democratic
family of our Union.
That the resolutions of the club which you
represent may be fully 'tomnplied with, I have
'no hesitation frankly to state that should our
fellow-citizens deem it proper to present, my
name in the manner they propose, though I nei-
ther seek nor desire it, I have no right to with-
hold it. For although I am filled with the

"To cherish a liberal commercial intercourse
with other nations, without involving ourselves
in entangling alliances with any," to dojustice
to others and rigidly exact it in turn, are also
among the prominent obligations of the federal
It is a fixed principle in our Government
which cannot be too faithfully adhered to in
practice, nor too often repeated, that it was in-
stituted to promote the welfare of the people;
that those who make, and those who carry into
effect the laws, are but their agents; and that
to generate any distinct interests between the
people and their government is incompatible
with this principle, and was never contemplated
by the framers of the Constitution.
A perfect tolerance of political opinion, and
freedom in the exercise of the elective fran-
chise, are indispensable; for a government
based on public opinion becomes impaired
when intolerance and a lawless control of the
right of suffrage withdraw from it that support!
and we should bear in mind, that while under
the imperative democratic principle, the will
of the -najority is to prevail in all cases, yet,
that "the minority possess rights, to violate
which would be oppression."
Opposition to political measures should ra-
ther be invited than deprecated; for, in laudable
opposition there may be found security from
error; nor should it be forgotten, that "every
difference of opinion is not a difference of prin-
ciple," and that, as citizens of the same Repub-
lic, we are all equally interested in the honor,
welfare and happiness of our common coun-
It may be affirmed as an incontestible truth,
that the tendency of corporate bodies and asso-
ciated wealth is inimical to the liberty, as it is
destructive of the equality of the people; and
the authority to create them was wisely with-
held from the General Government by the
States. Should this view be considered as too
forcibly stated, my answer is plain and direct:
the doctrine has been proved sound by expe-
rience, and has received the assent of the De-
mocratic party. If it be erroneous, the respon-
sibility of its maintenance is shared by a Jef-
ferson and a Madison, with a Snyder and a
Since the adoption of our present form of Go-
vernment, questions of importance have arisen,
upon which different portions of our fellow-ci-
tizens have taken issue. Some of these ques-
tions will probably never be revived. Should oc-
casion arisewhen important ones maybe presen-
ed, which would turn on a doubtful construc-
tion of the constitution, you may rest assured
that my convictions of right would be based
upon the only true and safe foundation-that of
the Jeffersonian school.
If the views .here set forth of the principles
of Democracy, under our constitution, and
which embrace perhaps the largest portion
of our national policy, prove satisfactory to
you, I cannot but feel proud that they have un-
dergone in meno change or diminution ; but.
on the contrary, they have been confirmed and
strengthened by tbe many opportunities I have
had of observing foreign rule, utinder different
forms of government, as well as the happy po-
sition of our country under the doctrines of our
Declaration of Independence, which have V
fully proved to us that man is not incapable of

ON THE DEATH OF MISS CATHARINE HORN.
To record the demise of a friend whom you have
highly esteemed is indeed a painful duty; yet, in this
instance, how much more painful the task to record
the de .th of a kind friend, an amiable and interest-
ing sister, who, just springing into womanhood, is
suddenly though expectedly cut off. The subject of
this notice, Miss CATHARINE HORN, had been labor-
ing for several years with a fatal disease yet her suf-
ferings were comparatively light when compared
with the severe sufferings she experienced within a
day or two before her death. She was well aware
that her disease was firmly seated in her constitution,
and became perfectly resigned to her fate. Those
who knew her can best appreciate her vittues-ever
kind, generous and amiable, she had won the affec.
tions of all with whom she had been acquainted; her
loss is, therefore, deeply and sensibly felt: and whilst
we mourn the loss ot a kind friend and affectionate
si tar, we should a so bear in mind that it was only
the will of ani all-wise Providence, whose ways are
always just, and in taking her away from this world,
he has provided for her a better and happier home,
where troubles are at an end. and where Angels
awaited her spirit coming in the faith and glory of
her blessed Redeemer.
Angel of innocence, thy stiff'rings here are at an end
To God in He-tven above thy spirit we commend.
