COMPOUND TOMATO PILLS,
T HESE PILLS are confidently recommended
A by the Medical Faculty, and admitted by
many of them "to be more extensively applicable to
diseases generally, than any other remedy ever pre-
pared.*' They are particularly recommended to
the feeble and sedentary as a Dietetic or Dinner
Pill, to invigorate the digestive powers of the
stomach, and promote a healthy action, thereby
preventing acidzty, flatulence, heart-burn, costove-
Wherever this medicine has been introduced it
has acquired an unprecedented celebrity as an-
alterative in Dyspepsia, Nervous, and Chronic dis-
eases. Also as a Cathartic in all Bilious diseases,
Rheumatism, Costiveness, &e.
A few only of the latest testimonials can be pub-
lished here ; for numerous others, see Pamphlets
recently published, to be had of all who sell the
VrThe public are requested to notice that these
Pills are an entirely different medicine from an
article which is advertised by the various names
of "Miles' Compound Extract of Tomato," "Ex-
tract of Tomato Pills"! "Tomato Pills," and
finally "Compound Tomato Pills." As those in.
terested in the sale of this preparation, have found
it expedient to borrow the name of the genuine Pills,
to introduce their medicine to notice, the public
are cautioned not to be deceived by any such "spe-
cious invention." Those wishing the genuine
Pills, which are so highly recommended, will see
the necessity of inquiring for "PHELPS' COM-
POUND TOMATO PILLS," and to observe that they
are labelled such, and bear the signature of the
proprietor, G. R. Phelps, M D.
The following are from testimonials lately re-
ceived ; tor numerous others, see Pamphlets re-
cently published, which may be had of all who
sell these Pills:
ROME, N. Y. April 23d, 1839.
G. R. Phelps, M. D.-Dear Sir: Althoug a
stranger to you, I have taken the liberty, at the
suggestion of your agents in this place, (Messrs.
Chesebrough & Leonard,) to give you an account
of the very remarkable effects of your Compound
Tomato Pills, upon my system. I have been for
many years afflicted with a painful Tuwmr upon
my breast; and have consulted most of the phy-
sicians in this vicinity, and tried their various
prescriptions, notwithstanding which the tumor
constantly increased, until it became the size of
two or three inches in diameter. My general
health had become much impaired, and for several
months past have suffered much from a severe and
almost constant pain in my head. In short, by the
universal advice of the many physicians I con-
sulted, I had concluded that my only hope of relief
was in submitting to have the tumor removed by
a surgical operation. Just at this time (viz., last
fall,) I saw one of your circulars, and was advised
to commence a course of your medicine-more
with the hope of restoring my general health, than
with any expectation of removing or reducing the
tumor. I have now taken about a dozen boxes
(small size,) of your Pills, and my head ache has
entirely left me; my general health is excellent;
and strange as it may appear, the tumor has al-
most disappeared. It is now only about the size of
a large pea; and I have no doubt but it will soon
be entirely removed, in consequence of the effects
of your medicine, as above stated. I have felt it
my duty as well as a pleasure, to recommend it to
others in this vicinity; and in every case, so far
as 1 have heard, it has given the most perfect sat-
isfaction, and proved itself a most valuable medi-
cine-especially in long standing diseases.
Yours very respectfully,
ROME, April 27th, 1839.
G. R. Phelps, M. D.-Dear Sir: Herewith we
send you a statement of Mr. Andrew Vredenburgh,
a very respectable farmer of this town. His case
is considered very remarkable one, and his state-
ments may be relied upon with the utmost confi-
Your Pills have fully established themselves in
this vicinity ; and the demand for them is con-
stantly increasing. If desirable, we can send you
several other certificates of cures, effected by the
use of your Pills. We remain yours, &c.
CHESEBROUGH & LEONARD.
Second Letter from Dr. Eaton, dated
BROOKFIELD, Mass., March 29th, 1839.
Dr. Phelps--Dear Sir: Your Pills are in great
demand; I hawe but a few on hand. No one who
has taken them, but are perfectly satisfied with
their beneficial effects in removing disease, how-
ever long standing. I shall be at Hartford about
the 15th of next month, and will bring with me a
number of certificates from persons of the first
respectability, of cures which they have perform-
ed-some ten, twelve, and one of twenty years
standing. The one last mentioned is a Mr. Luther
Stowell of South Brookfield, who has had a cari-
ous ulcer of a most formidable kind, and has never
been one day without bandaging his leg, from the
foot to the knee. His certificate I shall bring with
me. Please send me six dozen boxes more, on
the receipt of this, and oblige,
Yours &c. J. E. EATON.
Extracl from a letter of a gentleman in Texas,
(who had been for a long time in declining
COLUMBIA, (Texas,) Dec. 31, 1838.
"Having been here a sufficient length of time to
test the merits of Dr. Phelps' Tomato Pills, and
the reception they are likely to meet-I feel it in-
cumbent on me to send you the following: With
regard to my own case, they have restored me to
perfect health, after I thought health had forever
fled; and frm my experience, I am confident they
are the best medicine yet discovered, for those dis-
eases, to which in warm climates, we are more
or less liable. They have been used also, by many
others, in obstinate cases of chill and fever, and
have in every instance effected a radical cure.
Yours, &c. T. J. PILGRIM."

From the Peoria Regisrer.
On the Death of William Leggett.
Yes! passed away, in manhood's prhee,
The Chief who led the van of fight !
His eagle eye is quenched on time,
Down stricken in his god-like might i
Another shade has joined the throng
Of spirits in a purer sphere,
Who on the side of right were strong,
And battled nobly for it here.
Among the gifted he hath stood
As braves the oak the lightning's shock,
Which towers high o'er the stately wood,
And doth the storm and tempest mock:
The whole assembled world might frown,
He swerved not from his lofty aim ;
The foes of truth were cloven down
By fire caught from her altar flame.
Did legal fraud its plea advance,
And justice in the contest fail,
Beneath his full indignant glance
Its minions would in terror quail !
A matchless power dwelt in his Mu-
"The tho'ts that breathe and worda that burn,"
And speaking for earth's down-trod men,
Did every baser passion spurn. ..
Or did the clank of bondmen's chaiag
Fall harshly on the freeman's ear,
And groans rise from the sultry plains
Where slaves knew no sabbattic year;
'Twas then his swift and fearless tongue
The tyrant bearded in his den,
And liberty's loud tocsin rung-
The watch word-"God--our fellow men !"
Weep not for him His task is done
Just in the glowing noon of life;
The goal of wise ambition won,
Through victory in a moral strife:
Yet grieve that now his strength we need
In conflict with opposing foes,
Who, from their craven terror freed,
In serried phalanx round us close.
New-York may mourn her noblest son,
Whose name alone shall be a host;
For though his high career be done,
The record of his life's not lost:
But, cold in death, he speaketh still
In many a glowing thought and page,
W which will the bosom stir and thrill
With Freedom's fire from age to age. Z,
From the New-York Mirror.
A Colonel !-such a creature !
I met him at the ball!
Perfect in form and feature,
And so divinely tall!
He praised my dimpled-cheeks and curls,
While whirling through the dance,
And matched me with the dark-eyed girls
Of Italy and France!
He said, in accents thrilling,
"Love's boundless as the sea !
And I, dear maid, am willing
To give up all for thee !" :
I heard him-blushed-"woulld askmamma"-
And then my eyes grew din:
He looked-I said, "mamma-dada-
I'd give up all for him !"
That my papa was rich and old
Full well the Colonel knew :
"Love's wings," he said,"when fringed with gold,
Are beautiful to view!"
I thought his 'haviour quite the ton
Until I saw him stare,
When merely told that brother John,
Papa would make his heir I
Next day and the day after ,.
I Arws9-OWi.& r kif i \ 6;o
Was moved to tears and laughter-
He never came again !
But I have heard, for widow Dash
He bought the bridal ring,
And that he'll wed her for her cash,
The ugly, hateful thing! PORTIA.

creature by the waist, made her sit upon his lap,

Napoleon, "Canova is a friend, 'and we don't make
ceremonies with friends, besides he himself is of
a tender and susceptible nature, and will be de-
lighted to witness the happiness of an affectionate

romantic story, the hero of which you may easily
guess; you will then judge ifthose wholove each
other ought to feel restraint beloie Canova."
He kissed Marie Louise, and keeping her still
.upon his knee began : ."I6the province of Tre-
visa there is a little village called Possagno. In
this place was born andjreared the son of an archi-
tect, whose father died at the- early age of twenty-
seven, and whose mother married a second time
"Sartori di Crepano."" ,.
"At four years old the child, by 'name Antonio,
was entrusted to the care of its grandfather, who
treated it with, much severity. By him it was
sent to pass an autumn at Pradrazzi, two or three
leagues from Possagno, at the house of an Italian
Senator, a friend of his, whose name was Faliero.
The latter observing the intelligence of the little
-peasaut, and pleased with the ability he evinced
in carvingstone and shaping clay, placed him as a
pupil with a clever sculptor called Torreto."
"What! your Majesty knows all these minute
details of my private life iP' exclaimed Canova in
"I know many more," ieplied Napoleon mali-
ciously, and he continued: .
"Toretto was a man of strict morals, but howev-
er narrowly he may have watcheLd his favorite
pupil, Antonio found means to escape from the
Atelier now and then to go and dance at the village
fetes. He was then only sixteen. Amongst the
gay throng of peasants assembled together during
the vintage to dance the tarantella, there was one
whose charms captivated his heart, Bettina Biasi;
she was just fourteen. Her large black eyesspar-
led with animation, her waist was so tapering two
hands could not span it; her hair, the loveliest that
ever adorned a maiden."
A sigh escaped from the bosom of Canova: The
Emperor pressed the hand of Marie Louise, that
she might- remark that sigh, and without interrupt-
ing his recital, continued:
"Antonia was enthusiastic and in love. Ai for
the grandfather, he was much less moved by the
fascinations, than by the marriage portion of Bet-
tina, which was considerable, particularly for the
poor apprentice to a sculptor.
"The parents of both formed projects of uniting
them; arrangements for their marriage -were
drawing to a close, when Toretio and ihe$Sena-
tor chanced to hear of it. They reflected that this
union would destroy the prospects of their protege,
and determined to prevent it.

"Sire, you must attribute myillhealib to the

"Paris is Lhe capital of the a rts. .o6u must stay

The conversation then became more general;
they talked of the "Excavation" continued by the
Borghese family of Italian ai'tists, 6the.r"C6lonne
Vendome," and a thousand other topics.. Nothing
was new to Napoleon, who conversed with -a per-
fect knowledge of every subject, and a wonderful
clearness of perception.
Canova could not contain his surprise-aad ad-
miration. "How is it possible for your Majesty
to divide your attention between so many differ-,
ent matters 14" exclaimed he.

poleon, with a smile; "eight or nine hundred

Romans themselves had not so many. 1.have com-.
manded at forty battles. At Wagram, I fired a
hundred thousand cannon balls, and this lady., who
was then. Archduchess of Austria, desired my
death." At this he pulled the ear of Marie Louise,
who answered with a droll imitation of her Ger-
man accent, "II etre bien frai."

wear a different aspect."

p )w,?r of speech, htis heart throbs within him, his
eyes are filled with tearst. The road is strewed
with laurel-branclces and evergreen'-, all the in-
habitants of Pussagilo, women, children, and old
men, in holiday costume line the road, and salute
the celebrated youth. The venerable Toretto,
the old nmastier et Canova folds him in his arms,
weeping- over. him. At a distance approach the
ni.M her of Canova, his -step-father, and behind
tIleri, a female ,bathed in tears. "Bettina! mia
BetrinaP"' cried 'Canova. She stretches out her
hakd to him, he. is abouam to speak, when the bells
of the village sound a merry pe 1, salvos of mus-
ketry rend the air, and thecurate at the head of his
clergy, singing the "Te Deum,"advances in his
clerical robes, kneels down, and returns thanks to
Providence for ha ving granted toiPo.sagno a child
so- renowned as Canova. Theaged priest then
passes his arm through that of Canova, his mother
leans on the o:her, and the procession conducts the
hero in triumph to his grandfather, whose infirmi-
ties confine him to-his house."
"Ah I sire, sire'! let me entreat you not to con-
tinue a recital whioh awakens such cruel and such
sweet recollections;" interrupted Canova, sobbing.
But Napoleon was too much pleased wi;h the
impression he had made on his listeners to think
of stopping. Marie ,Louise had Neveral times
wiped the tears from her eyes.
"Listen to the rest" returned he, addressing the
Enapre.s, "we are-coming.to the denoumnnt, which
is well worthy of the rest of the story.
"The ,day following, as Canova was entering
the little garden of his grandfather, he saw Betli-

"About eight days ago, to a deserving young
man who has sought my hand for four years."
"Oh that was a noble and worthy creature,"
cried Marie Louise.
Canova had left his seat, and had gone to lean
his head against the window to conceal his grief.
A knock' came to the door, and the Minister of
Police, the Due d'Otrante, put in his plain bat ex-
"Really, M. le Due, you could not have arrived
at a tore opportune moment. Sethe effect I have
produced, lthaunk to the information you have pro-

shoulder of the artist-"employ yourself in making

pose we must letyou gi. Good night! Have busi-

ror, Marie Louise, and Canova, were in the same

The Poor Man's Curse.
Ori intention is to illustrate principle. Some
few years ago Thomas Honestus, a young man,
was in prosperous business. He felt that all
promised to be successful in his worldly affairs,
and, under the influence of that hope which is
strong in many, he availed himself of the credit
which his eondition and business offered. But he
fanied. His property was taken to pay a portion
of those creditors who were most vigilent, while
many others were left unpaid and somewhat an-
gry. Notwithstanding the clear, apparent state
of the case, that he had been acting in good faith,
and with earnest endeavors to get along in the
world-that his properly was ample to pay all that
he owed, if properly disposed of-that his property
had been seized by the Sheriff, sold at Auction
and sacrificf-d-that ruin had come upon his busi-
ness and disappointment upon his hopes, not by
fault'but by the ordinary casualties of all sublu-
nary thlings-notwithstanding all this, those credi-
tors- who were looser, were angry. They had
lost money. Hone.sus mrnight have meant fairly.
But they did not know. They did not suppose
they should ever get a cent. The demand was
good for nothing. But if they could ever catch
him, so that they could, they would screw it out
some how or another.
Our herq, Thomas Hunestus, was out of busi-
ness, in consequence of this calamity, some two
or three years. ie .worked along as well as lie
cold, told his family that he was, and they must
be economical. He made them turn their old,,
garments, and keep up as decent an appearance as "
They lived almost down to an allowance of
bread and water, and poor Thomas had no sustaimu-
ing power let't o encourage his heart, but a deter-. .
inination that as long as life was left he would

A FABLE NOT TO BE FOUND IN MESOP.
There was once a happy country, where the
smiling earth put forth all her luxuriance and
beauty. Innumerable little streams meandered
along, murmuring and gurgling through the val-
lies, groves, and meadows. diffusing every where
the blessings of plenty, and conferring health and
happiness uheresoever they strayeit. All who
practiced the labors of industry, and the virtue of
economy, obtained the cumfurts of life without
difficulty, and many had grown wealthy without
once encroaching on the rights ol their neighbors.
But, in an evil hour, there grew up among this
happy community an idea that they could make
themselves more prosperous and happy by impro-
ving upon the works of Providence, and disturb-
ing the order of nature. Schemes of all kinds
were devised for this purpose, and, in time, a large
portion of them left the wholesome pursuits of
lural husbandry, and abandoned the cultivation of
the fields to invent new schemes for growing rich
without the practice of labor, or the observance of
At length, one of these mischievous persons who
eschewed labor, and despised economy, suggested
to these deluded people that t would be a wonder-
ful improvement to turn all these little rivulets
which fertilized the land, and diffaued the blessings
of plenty wherever they flowed, into one great
river. The idea took mightily, f'r the love of
mi ney had now become the ruling passion among
this shoru-sighted race; and they were in such a
hurry to get rich, that they could not wait the slow
process of labor and economy.
Accordingly, they set to work to turn all the lit-
tle streams into one great river. They abandoned
the plough and the scythe, and with spades and
maitorks sweated away the seasons of planting
and harvest in draining off the waters, which
spread themselves every where, into one great
stream. At length the work was accomplished,
and every body said, "Now I shall be rich, and
Ihere will no lo,.ger be any necessity to labor.;'
But in a little while all the fields that had been
fertilised by the little streams which ran by every
man's door, began to wither; the grass faded, the
leaves wilted, and the earth became parched with
thirst. Nowhere, save on the banks of the great
river thus formed out of the running streams, was
there to be seen a blade of grass, a fleecy grove, or
a verdant meadow. All who could not procure a
portion of land nigh by this great stream, began to
feel the approach of poverty, aggravated by a
scarcity of all the necessaries of life, produced by
the neglect of agriculture, while they were em-
ployed in turning the little streams into a great
Those only who were within reach cf the great
river, flourished, while all the rest gradually sunk
into poverty, and were at length forced to hire
themselves out as hewers of wood and drawers of
water, to the few who had been fortun-.te enough
to inherit, or cunning enough to purchase, land on
the banks of the great river, which had been for-
med out of the thousand little streams that once
diffused plenty every where These latter were
delighted with the success of the..projeLf, and
"prrtrtiTre'.iT gleiti.ri"nmprovenient ut ine
age; but the others, who were as a thousand to
one, said to themselves as they sweated and writh-
ed, in the grasp of poverty, which now neither
labor or economy could unloose, What fools we
were, not to content ourselves with our little brooks,
instead of turning them all into a great ricer."
The United States and French Squadrons.
On Tuesday last the French frigateNereide and
two brigs of war dropped down to the Navy Yard,
and yesterday the frigate and one of the brigs sail-
ed for France.
We understand that their departure was hastened
by the unpleasant relations existing between Ad-
miral Baudin and the Commander of the U. S.
Squadron, growing outef some supposed want of
professional courtesy on the part of the former.-
We give these things as we get them, and do not
undertake to vouch for their truth, but it is under-
stood on shore that Com. Sh'rbrick, on the arrival
of the Admiral, visited him on board his ship, but
was not received with the naval honors which he
deemed to be due to his rank-that Admiral B. af-
terwards addressed a notr to the Commodore, in
-which he deprecated any unpleasant feelings
which he supposed might, without explanation, be
produced by the course of conduct which he had
thought it his duty to pursue.
We hear several stories as to the manner in
which this communication was received, some of
them reasonable enough and some of them not
particularly reasonable. Certain it is, however
that little or none of the courtesy interchanged be-
tween our officers and the French when they meet
here, was observable during the late visit of the
French Squadron; though personally, we under-
stand, thetwo commanders were very civil to each
other. The whole difficulty has we supposegrown
out of the fact, that the usages ofnationsdo not per-
mit a French Vice Admiral to regard an Ameri-
can Post Captain as his equal in rank, even though
they both have the same command. It is a matter
for Congress to look to, and if they deem it of
sufficient importance, to regulate. We may think
as we please about the matter--we may insist as
we please upon the commanders of our fleets being
entitled to the same honors that would be due to
admirals of other nations, they will not be paid;
it is calling "spirits from the vasty deep." With
military and naval men, forms are substances, and
names are things. Wa may be a I iw unto our-
selves, but we cannot make law for others, and it
is the part of wisdom to follow where we cannot
On the day on which the French Squadron
dropped down, a dinner was given by Commander
M Intosh to the Admiral and his officers, and on
the day follow ing, the officers of the Yard dined
on board the French Frigate. The Admiral
toasted "The President of the United States," and
at the same time rose and touched a bell, which
caused a salute to be fired of "21- guns. In reply
to this compliment, Capt. McIntosh drankk to the

Unprecedented Violation of Private Right.
When the Constitution of this State was adop-
ted by the people, they believed that individual
property, and private interest and private right
were all secured, and put beyond the reach of any
tyrannical course of legislation. For public use,
these private rights might be taken, to the extent
of the public demands for roads, upon the payment
of just compensation therefore. Under the old
Charter of Charles the Second, even private rights
might be invaded without redress, but on the adop-
tion of the Constitution, this power was taken
Nothing can be more true to the letter, than the
proposition, that in a republic, power is stealing
from the many to the few. Here is a case in
point. After the constitution of the State was
formed, the General Assembly go to work to build
up private corporations, for the sole purpose of
enabling these corporations to prey upon the rights
of individuals, and rob them of their property.-
In 1829 this same General Assembly create, by
their sovereign power, one of these all-devouring
corporations at Norwich, by the name of The
Norwich Water Power Company ;" and then they
authorise that Company to erect a dam across the
Shetucket River, of such form and height as en-
tirely to obstruct the passage of fish up that river.
This dam was erected, and in its effects, the ixhole
shad fishery above said dam, in the Snetucket,
Quinebaug and Willimantic Rivers was destroyed.
Moreover, this same devouring corporation was
enabled to rent a fishery at the foot of their dam,
where none was before used, at three, four, and
some years at five hundred dollars, while every
owner of land on the river above, was wholly cut
off from his long established and well defined right
of fishery. These proprietors, thus injuriously
affected, will amount to several hundred in num-
ber, and a large amount in value. Let it be re-
membered that this Water Power Company, is a
private corporation; the stock is owned by private
individuals, and if any poor man was to step his
foot upon their fishery below this dam, to take one
single shad, that man would be immediately pros-
ecuted for tsespasst Now all must see, that the
effect of these proceedings has been to take away
the private rights of the owners of land above the
dam, and give them over to a private corporation.
This cannot legally be done. It is unconstitution-
al! as well as, unjust!! Where is the remedy for
such a wanton and wicked exercise of power --
Surely with the General Assembly; they can rem-
edy this great wrong. They can restore these
land holders to their rights. And what have they
At the last session of the General Assembly,
these land holders went up in a body, nearly two
thousand voices united, praying that this private
water power corporation might be compelled to
open small sluice way through their dam, or in
some other way so to construct their dam, that
during the short period of the fishing season, the
fish might pass up the waters of said rivers, as had
from time immemorial been customary, as is done
on the other rivers ih the State, so that the land
holders might be restored to their rights. The
case was fairly presented to the Assembly. It was
a very strong one in point of right, tor the land
owners. It was shown by the exhibition of the
most. clear, conclusive and. irresistable evidence,
that the damn might be so altered as to permit the
fish to pass up saig-iiers without the least injury
toe e'Wate i POWT Comany."- "t w as reslslted by
the friends of this private Corporation, on the
ground that this private Corporation held a vested
right in their act of incorporation! This General
Assembly with its federal majority, its federal
power, and its federal MIDNIGHT caucus, sustains
this Corporation in such preposterous and unjust
The Democracy came nobly forward and denied
the power claimed-if this doctrine of vested
rights was to be the law of the Country, those land
owners had their prior vested right-they denied
the power in the General Assembly to take prop-
erty from one man and give it to another. This
was no public demand-it was in fact a mere op-
eration of taking away the private property of
individuals, and bestowing the same upon a private
Corporation! Belhold the result. The General
Assembly, yes this Federal Whig General Assem-
bly give these land holders leave to withdraw their
petition !!! They refuse to do away this great
wrong. In looking over the Yeas and Nays, every
Whig is found voting for this private Corporation.
Not a member voted to restore these land holders
to their rights, except he was a Democrat. This
doctrine of federal vested rights, is too odious long
to be endured by a free people. It is a doctrine
convenient to tyranny. It has availed now, but
cannot long.bear the light. Let the people know
who those men arp, thus arrogating to themselves,
this ill-gotten power, and they will mark them as
" Unjust Slewar4s." One of these whig repre-
sentatives from the County of Windham, who
signed the petition, and solemnly engaged, before
his election, to support that petition, and when he
found himself associated with the great whigparty,
he abandoned his pledges, and in the House at the
close of an able and interesting debate, in which
some eight or ten democratic members had with
much eloquence and ability, advocated the rights
of the land holders, against this wanton exercise
of power, by this private corporation-at this mo-
ment, when a majority of the members were im-
patient to vote in favor of the petition of these
land holders, he moved to lay the Report of the
Committee on the table. Eight-and-forty hours
'elapsed before the question was again brought
before the House-in the mean time a Whig
caucus was had, and a MANDATE was issued re-
quiring every Whig to vote against the petition of
the land holders. The order was implicitly obey-
ed; no whig dar4 vote for the petition.
In the House, when the subject was debated,
there was no opposition to the prayer of the peti-
tioners, except the furious and erratic speeches
made by the representatives from Norwich; had
there been no other opposition to the prayer of the
petition, the House would have granted it by ac-
clamation. But the Federal Whig caucus settled
the question. So we go, and so we.. must go, as
long as the spirV 6t tyranny prevails--so long as
these Whigs biar rule! Let the Democracy of
Connecticut read this case. Let them reflect upon
the power claimed by the Federal party, and see
how far they march on when they think the power
is in their hands,-and when this reflection is
made, there will be aroused a spirit among the
neonle. which shall teach tyrants their doom! and
the rich under color of law. Absurd as the idea
ig, it is entertained by vast numbers.
Another calumny which has had no little effect
on many good sort ot men, is h:e declaration that
the administration aiid its supporters are thie ene-
mies and oppressors of the commercial class. It
is in vain that the government is occupied in re-
covering, by i.s decision in negotiation, the losses
which tnis class has sustained from foreign na-
tions; it is in vain that it treats the vast numbers
of merchants indebted to the government with the
most generous and Iriendly loibearance; it is in
vain that when any law presses severely on their
interests, as in the case of the laws respecting ves-
sels engaged in the whale fishery, it mitigates that
severity by every means in its power; it is in vain
that the democratic party is in favor of leaving
commerce embarrassed by the fewest possible re-
strictions; the cry of enmity to commerce and the
commercial class is continually kept up by their
political enemies for political ends, and many per-
sons come at last sincerely to believe it.
A third slander which is doing some mischief,
is the outcry now ringing in the whig prints, that
the democrats have a project on foot for breaking
all the banks in the country, and bringing upon the
community another suspension of specie payments.
We have already shown the absurdity as well as
the utter groundlesness of this charge, but there
are many who believe it, because it is roundly and
A considerable number of worthy people have
been ltd, by the constant application of the term
" infidels" to thie democratic party, to suppose that
this party is an association for the purpose of pro-
mulgating peculiar notions on the subject of reli-
gion. They fancy that a democrat is a disbeliev-
er in revelation of course, that his heart is contin-
ually plotting mischief against those who do not
hold to the same opinions with himself, that he
wants to break up their religious assemblies and
turn their churches into lecture rooms for infidel
We have said that many of those who believed
these lies were excusab!e-but we must qualify
this expression. They are excusable in part. It
is very true that they are led a*:;ay by treacherous
guides, but it is their ox n folly that they trust them-
selves with a blind and lazy credulity to thle direc-
tion of profligate journalists. They read only
what is written on one side of the question. They
see our doctrines only in caricature; distorted,
discolored and changed ; when they might, if they
pleased, see them as they are. If they would but
look at what is published on our side of the ques-
tion, they would see that the only agrarianism of
which our party is guilty, is that we proclaim the
doctrine of equal and impartial legislation as the
true remedy for that artificial inequality of condi-
tion among men which all allow to be an evil; that
so far from being enemies to the commercial class,
we would enlarge the freedom of trade; that we
entertain no other plan of attack oh the banks ex-
cept that of declining to furnish them with the
public money as their capital; and that we are no
otherwise exposed to the charge of infidelity, than
that we desire the blessing of unlimited toleration
for men of every religious denomination.

knowledged or not; and the man who can glance

brains inflated by federal credit bubbles to no small
There seems to be but one opinion, that com-
bination to force an unnatural price upon any
great article of commerce, whether less or greater
than the real value are, in the very nature of
things, mischievous, sure to be followed by retri-
butive re-action in that article, and generally by
convulsion and distress in the whole circle of com-
mercial relations-at war with the freedom and
honesty of trade, poisonous to the confidence on
which its mutual advantages rest, and especially
injurious to producers and consumers. For in
precise proportion as uncertain, fluctuation and
risk fall upon trade, in that proportion will pro-
duction be discouraged and consumption checked.
It may be safely inferred, therefore that no ordi-
nary circumstances will ever induce the produ-
cers to combine against the consumers. Nay, the
producers and real consumers are to a very great
extent the same persons, and a combination by the
former to raise the price of the products, will quite
certainly be visited upon them by an equal rise in
theprice of what they get in exchange.
The manufacturers are about as little likely to
make similar conspiracies. Men whose profits
are in the results of daily and sober business, who
are chained by so many and strong necessities to
that which is permanent, certain and regular, who
depend upon the confidence and prosperity of their
customers (the producers) as completely as upon
the soundness of their own machinery; to whom
confusion and embarrassment in trade is direct
calamity, and the breaking the chain of commer-
cial connection is death; these are not the men to
turn the intercourse of nations into a system of
gambling, to risk all their great interests in a
game of hazard, to turn their strength into a strug-
gle in which, victorious or defeated, they destroy
themselves. All the great original parties, there-
fore in commercial intercourse, all the permanent
elements are opposed by the strong motive of in-
terest, to convulsions in trade, to' whatever checks
or embarrasses it, to all attempts to force an artifi-
cial character upon it. And the merchant, whose
profits arise from the employment of his capital,
is time and his talents in conducting the inter-
course of nations-what should tempt him to su-
peradd fluctuations of prices, mystery and chicane-
ry of dealing, the doubtful issue of party struggles,
to the uncertainty of Providence, the dangers of
the-sea. It is his business to calculate the wants
aid resources of the community; he lives upon
the permanent relation of supply and demand, but
to foist into his business the necessity of encoun-
tering and providing against all the machinations,
follies and absurdities of men, put it into the pow-
er of speculators to determine whether there shall
be any supply, and into the power of hawkers
whether there snail be any medium with which to
conduct his business, and sagacity ceases to have
any use, the results of study and experience only
mislead, and commerce is reduced to a chaos of
mingled humbug, blunder and trickery. The
regular merchant must dread the fluctuations'of
trade-they are his enemies.
But the producer, merchant, manufacturer and
consumer form a complete circle of relations in
commerce, and it appears that artificial and for-

TIHE PRESIDENT'S RECEPTION AT
HOME l !
Tihe great pails which have been taken to mar
the President's reception in his own county-the
extraordinary course pursued by the "authorities"
of the capitol of the county-and ihe praises which
the Federal Whig press have so liberally bestow-
ed upon that course, created in us some anxiety to
witness his reception at Hudson, so that we might
bear true witness. We therefore visited that place
on Friday last, and witnessed his reception both
there and at Kinderhook.
It was apparent, from many things, which we
witnessed at Hudson, as well as here, before and
since our visit, that the proceedings of the Com-
mon Council had been suggested from abroad, and
that its members had been mere tools in the hands
of those who designed to disgrace the President
in hisnative county. We were therefore the more
pleased at a reception which was as gratifying as
it was unexpected, which exceeded our warmest
hopes, and which inflicted upon the actors in the
attempted disgrace, a rebuke s severe as it was
merited. The reception of Mr. Van Buren at
our city was great, but that at Hudson, consider-
ing the difference in population of the two places,
far surpassed. It was not a parade of the milita-
ry, but an assemblage of the people-a demonstra-
tion of the democracy.
It was not a reception by the great mass of the
people of Hudson alone, but by the democracy of
the whole county, who left their fields in the midst
of their harvest, and hastened to honor the man
whose value and merit they well appreciated, and
to vindicate the honor of their county-to erase
the stain it had received at the hands of a few in-
tolerant and short-sighted men:
"From her mountains and her plains in troops
The hardy yeomanry-the unpurchaseable sons of
toil, the patriarchs of the party-the companions
of his youth, all were there, and welcomed him,
not with the slight and formal shake of the hand,
but with the cordial and lengthened grasp, and the
pleasure beaming countenance. The thousand
anecdotes of his boyhood's home, of which the
people were constantly reminding him, gave an
increased and absorbing interest to his reception.
Old soldiers of the revolution, too feeble to join in
the procession, yet came miles to see him, and
seated by the way side, added their shouts of wel-
come. "1 I have," said one, voted the democratic
ticket for 40 years, and I want to live to give him
one more vote." "' Thirty years ago!"exclaimed
another, "he and 1 fought side by side against the
Federalists, and I will never desert him." "He
was a plain farmer's boy when I first knew him,"
cried a third, "and now, boys, see what honesty
and industry can make you. Such was the feel-
ing of the old and the young, and he may well be
proud of his reception in his native county.
The day was fair, but excessively warm. At
11 o'clock, a mounted escort of young men assem-
bled in front of Staal's National Hotel, and with
the Committee of Arrangements proceeded to
Greenport, a distance of four miles, to escort him
to the city. The streets now began to assume a
more animated appearance. Wagons, from all
parts of the county, were continually arriving,
laden with independent citizens. The windows
were crowded with females, and the streets filled
with the expecting multitude.
About one o'clock, the "Albany Republican
Artillery," accompanied by about an hundred citi-
zens, arrived; and at the same time the roar of
the artillery announced that the President and his
escort had arrived. Soon the procession approach-
ed. First came Col. Darling, Chief Marshall,
and his Aids. Then the mounted escort, consist-
ing of about 200 young men, with blue and white
scarf. The Albany Republican Artillery next.-
Then the President, in a barouche, accompanied
by Messrs. Wiswall, Anable, and Wescott of the
Committee of Arrangements. The Committee of
Arrangements in carriages-a large concourse of
citizens on foot, and then an array of carriages
and wagons, which seemed interminable, as it
wound down the hill which overlooks the city.-
The appearance was truly imposing and grand,
and far, very far, exceeded any thing which we
The main street of the city extends back from
the river more than a mile in a straight line. The
procession, in compact order, extended nearly the
whole distance. Lafayette's reception is remem-
bered by the citizens of Hudson, as a parade ex-
ceeding any thing which had ever been witnessed
there, and we heard many persons assert that the
procession on this occasion, exceeded the former in
length and number of persons.
We find the following just strictures upon the
barbarous law of Imprisonment for debt, in the
New York Journal of Commerce. It will be rec-
ollected that the late federal legislature refused to

Imprisonment for Debt.
I am aware of the diversiy of opinion that ex-
ists throughout the country in relation to this sub-
ject, and regret that a matter which should excite
a general interest, is almost forgotten, and wholly
disregarded. I am also aware of the impossibili-
ty of enacting a law that will harmonize alike
with the feelings and secure an equality of inter-,
ests; although it may afford the same protection to
one as the other. The legislature, in the framing
of this law, like all other laws, had the public in-
terest and the good of society at heart, and yet no
law that was ever instituted, has been productive
of more injurious consequences than that which
has the power to call inhumanity into exercise, and
give the iron-hearted creditor the opportunity to
rob industry of its. reward, and enterprise of its
A law which always has and still continues to
subject honesty to the same mode of pro. ceding as
roguery, and has not the power to discriminate
between good and bad motives, and which is inca-
pable of making any distinction, its total annihila-
tion becomes indispensably necessary for the honor
and welfare ol the community.
Because a man through a series of misfortunes,
becomes insolvent, whose means are exhausted,
but whose intentions are pure and incorrupt, he
must have his liberty circumscribed to some ob-
scure apartment within the walls of a debtor's
prison; while the other debtor, who is actuated by
bad motives, considers this confinement no punish-
ment, but rather a shelter from suspicion, and in-
stead of being bowed down with poverty and afflic-
tion, cheerfulness is his companion in solitude; he
welcomes this captivity, for it is calculated to blind
the eyes of his creditors, and beget a belief in the
public mind that he has got no property, and this
present confinement is his protection rather than
Here we see one man with means to pay his
honest debts, but who of choice pursues this poli-
cy, and therefore undergoes no privation or sac-
The other is an unfortunate debtor. He must
have the same bolts and bars fastened upon him;
his means to liquidate his claims are entirely cut
off; shut up in prison, the condition of his family
preying upon his wounded spirits, his hopes of fu-
ture prosperity blasted, his ambition paralyzed,
and his health impaired. Nature triumphs over
injustice, and he fixes an unalterable determina-
tion never to satisfy the demand even if fortune
should favor him with means. What advantage,
then, arises from imprisonment for debt ? It inva-
riably fails to accomplish the right object. The
very means employed to secure a debt, only affects
the creditor's interest, as well as the debtor's,,

SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1839.
A CONSTITUTIONAL INDEPENDENT TREASURY, AGAINST
AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL NATIONAL BANK.
Some of the leading federal editors have lately
threatened to make an issue upon this question at
the coming election, as if they had not already
done it, and availed themselves of all they could
make out of it, in their usual mode of assailing
democratic measures, to wit, by coupling it with
every abusive epithet.
In this goodly work they have been engaged for
nearly to years, and what can they now do more
than they have already done? Surely the English
language has no epithet of- reproach that has not
been bestowed upon this measure, and that a thou-
sand times repeated. And if for the last few
months there has been anything like forbearance,
it is because they were plainly told by many of
their readers that they had been presented with
enough of this species of argument, and if the
measure was further assailed, they must have
something more substantial with which to meet
its friends. The subject has now been so long be-
fore the public and so fully discussed, that the ex-
clusive readers of federal papers even, have been
forced to acquire some knowledge of its real
character, and the effect of that knowledge is to
beget a desire to know more. All further agita-
tion of the subject will tend both to increase that
desire and to furnish the means of gratifying it.
Agitation, therefore, is the very last thing the
friends of the measure will deprecate. Let fed-
eral editors then make up the issue upon the Inde-
pendent Treasury, we bid them God speed. But
they will do no such thing, for the time has now
come when naked denunciations will no longer
serve their purpose; their own readers have be-
gan to look to the merits of the question, and to
discuss this question upon its merits is the very
last thing that federal editors will undertake.-
The more prudent and discreet among them have
taken this view of the subject and have began to
warn the less considerate brethren of the danger
of their course.
The following from the Philadelphia North
American, in reply to the New York Eveniig Star,
will serve as a specimen :
The New York Evening Star takes some ex-
ceptions to our advice that the Whigs treat the
Sub-Treasury as a cool question of political econ-
omy, and dispense with rant and ridicule in this
matter. In order, as we suppose, to illustrate the
advantages of the opposite course, the Star affords
us a specimen of the ranting style, which is ex-
"The project called Sub-Treasury or Indepen-
dent Treasury, is neither more nor less than ta-
king the people's money from the custody of the
people, or their representatives, and placing the
same in the hands of the Executive. ** *
It is to collect all the gold and silver in the coun-
try in the government vaults, o: which the Presi-
dent is to keep the key, like the Dey of Algiers,
and the people are to have no agency in its dis-
tribution or appropriation."
Now we do not like to quarrel with the editor of
the Star about one of his lively paragraphs, for
the manufacture of which he has a high and de-
served reputation; but we must ask him whether
any advocate of the Sub-Treasury has used lan-
guage in its defence, which partook more largely
of the spirit of humbug? What reader of the Star
does not know that the public money is less under
the custody of the people when committed to the
deposit banks than when kept "in the govern-
ment vaults" And what reader can swallow the
assertion that, under the Sub-Treasury system,
"the people are to have no agency in the appro-
priation"of the public money ? We trust no one.
People can be gulled amazingly both in New
York and here; but we should certainly think it
hazardous to tell our readers that under any con-
stitutional regulation, the peopje. can be deprived
rofThe power to appropriate the public mony,
when the right to propose such appropriation is
specially reserved to the immediate representa-
tives of the people. Such loose talk respecting
the Sub-Treasury passed off much better two years
ago than it does now. People have contrived to
find out (and without much aid from the whig
papers) the general nature of the scheme; they
begin to see whatever real objections lie against
it; and many are convinced that if they would
see the length and breadth of the matter, they
must study political economy more, and party
slang less. VWe do not question the ability of the
Star to discuss the subject on its true grounds; but
we do insist that it should be discussed candidly
and clearly by all. At any rate we feel confident
that no other style of discussion can ultimately do
much to prevent the success of the Sub-Treasury
A pretty fair warning this, from a federal editor
to his brethren, to let the Independent Treasury
alone, unless they can come to a "candid and
clear" discussion of the matter, and this he very
well knows would be yielding the question at
once. We commend it tothe consideration of our
neighbor of the Courant, and we repeat for his
benefit, that "such loose talk respecting the Sub-
Treasury, passed off much better two years ago
than it does noww. People have contrived to find out
(and wi/Aout mudch aid from the whig papers) the
general nature of the scheme." Yes, "the people
have contrived to find out without much aid" or
rather without any aid from federal papers, and
despite their systematic efforts to mislead them,
not only the general nature of the scheme of an
Independent Treasury-but also the nature of the
schemes of those who have raised a loud and in-
cessant clamor against it. The schemes of all
parties in relation to this matter are now so far
developed as to be comprehended by the great mass
of thinking and intelligent people throughout the
Union. Any further effort at misrepresentation
can only serve to expose the true character of
those who attempt it.
It is too late now to say that the Independent
Treasury is "a project which has in view the pla-
cing the control of the national treasury in the
hands of the executive branch of the government,
for the main object of enabling him to secure his
re-election." Twelve months ago perhaps a
charge like this might have obtained credit with
many of the readers of the CouralTt, but the meas-
ure is now so far understood that we will venture
to say, there is not a single reader CR that paper
who does not know that this charge against the
Independent Treasury has not the slightest found-
ation in truth, and that the object of the measure

The Registry Law.
In the lame and impotent efforts made by the
federal newspapers to justify this daring invasion
of the constitutional rights of freemen, no attempt
is made to reconcile it to the Constitution-no evils
ore pointed out for which the law will afford a
remedy-no apology is made for a federal legisla-
fure which presumed to disfranchise by a single
enactment, every elector in the State-taking away
the right of suffrage guaranteed by the constitution,
and placing the recovery of that right at the mer-
cy of a bjard, which they themselves have labor-
ed to fill with heated and reckless partizans. The
outrage indeed admits of no apology; and the
rude levity with which federal editors have treat-
ed the just complaints of freemen, thus robbed of
their rights, is equaled only by that of a free-booter
to the honest traveller whom he has plundered by
the way side. "You can plunder in your turn,"
says the highwayman. "The game is equal," says
editor Dwight and his echoes. Thus in effect
pleading guilty to the charge, and confessing a de-
liberate purpose oif using the unlimited power
conferred by this law to fortify themselves in au-
thority, in ,defiance of public opinion. So far as
they now fail to control a majority they can shut
out votes from the ballot boxes under the color of
law, and when fraud and villainy is too palpable
to be denied. "The game is equal," is the insulting
reply. Nothing would be more gratifying to the
leaders of the federal party than to see democrats
follow out their wicked examples, and thus bring
popular suffrage into contempt and derision. Their
efforts thus far to hold it up to ridicule and scorn
have most signally failed; it is still cherished by
democrats as the only sure guarantee for the en-
joyment of individual rights-the only effectual
shield against the public oppressor and robber-
the vilest that ever infested the earth-those who
plunder a whole people under the name of gov-
It is said that the board thus clothed with abso-
lute power is created by the suffrages of the peo-
ple, true, but the people never confided this unlim-
ited and dangerous power to their hands, nor will
they to any man or set of men, "until they find
angels in the shape of men to govern them." Not
an elector in the State can go to the polls on the
first Monday in April next, with the port and bear-
ing of a freeman, confident in his right, unless it
be their High Mightinesses, the absolute board, and
those whom they may please to favor with their
secrets. He will be driven from the ballot box
like a convicted felon, if his name does not appear
upon the favored roll. This is no exaggerated
picture of the condition to which the electors of
this State are reduced, by an arbitrary act of a fed-
eral legislature. Let us turn to the language of
the edict giving dictatorial powers to this board:
"The moderator of any Elector's Meeting shall
receive the votes of all persons whose names are
on the lists of voters as certified by the Town
Clerk and Selectmen, and he shall not receive the
vote of any pei son whose nantme does not appear on
said list." And be it remembered that the lists are
not to be altered as to resident voters after the
meeting is opened. It is true, that copies of the
lists are required to be posted up in three or more
public places, at least ten days before the meeting,
but-every man knows full well that this posting
copies in public places, will, in fact, afford no
means of information to the great majority of
electors. There is no security that such notices
will remain for the space of five minutes before
they are destroyed by accident or design; besides,
if the lists should by possibility remain, which
and where are the public places? Not one in a
hundred among the electors of this town, would
be likely to visit places which may be designated
as such by the board. And again, if by a fortunate
chance an elector encounters the list, and finds his
name there, he has no assurance of finding it on
theis- a bteitt n mast govern the moderator at the
elector's meeting. The board is expressly em-
powered to alter the list at any time before the
opening of the meeting, as well by the erasure as
by the addition of names, and that without the
slightest notice to the persons interested.
-What estimate we would now ask should be
placed upon a right, held by a tenure so frail It
is but mockery to talk of rights which are held at
the arbitrary will of another. He is politically a
slave, who holds the right of suffrage by no higher
tenure than that by which the electors of Connecti-
cut now hold it under the Registry Law; and we
greatly mistake their character if they consent to
*hold it on such terms after the first Monday in
What is Mr. Dwight's opinion of the "broad-

STle pitiful appearance of the "empty barrel,"'

t sworn representative, and the disgrace which such
i a fellow has inflicted on the place, is felt by the
party which elected him. Finding themselves
losing ground and even self-respect, by selecting
such a mere effigy of a man, one of the scrub
aristocracy says he is a mechanic-aye, and he is
, an elector, and an'aboli ionist, and a hired tool of
the President of the Hartford Bank. But does it
follow that every elector is an abolitionist, a tool of
, Jo Trumbull, and a bladder of simple vanity, be-
cause Copeland is He is a mechanic it is true,
and no honor to his craft-nor must Mr. Trum-
bull think to pull a mechanic's cloak over his
asses ears. He has used this poor tool, who be-
longs, soul and body, to the bank-who went to
him with a statement of his affairs, and got relief,
when he commenced doing the dirty political work
of Trumbull, and has presumed rather too much
on a name, whichbelongs to the honest, intelligent,
independent, unbought mechanics of Hartford.

mon sense," and the ridicule and disgrace of Hart-
ford is Jo Trumbull's Mechanic. True, Trum.
bull has succeeded in procuring some mechanics
to vote for him, but he could have persuaded them
to vote for almost any one sooner than the conceit-
ed, brainless tool that he thrust forward last spring.
U. S. Bank Cotton Speculations.
The fall of cotton is a terrible blow to the Mam-
moth Bank. Biddle and Humphrey's speculation
will prove most disastrous, and the stockholders
will, ere long, begin to inquire for their capital.
The worshippers att he shrine of Nick Biddle, be-
gin to think they made no exhibition of wisdom
in prostrating themselves before him--purchasing
silver plate, to the amount of twenty thousand dol-
lars at a time, with the funds of the bank. The
glorification of Nick Biddle has departed, and
those silly merchants who, like the worshippers of
Juggernaut, praised and adored the idol that crush-
ed them, are beginning to recover their senses.
Intelligent merchants are beginning to think that
trade and commerce should control banks, rather
than that banks should control trade. Banking is
a mere incident to trade, but has assumed to be it-
master; and the merchants have, a large portion
of them, in times past, so far debased themselves,
as to strive to make banks not only masters over
them and their business, but over the government
and country. The banks, instead of seeking the
business of the merchants, have had the merchants
on their knees beseeching their favors. This is a
reversal of all right. In the regular course of bu-
siness, and each in its proper sphere, bankers,
like carriers, are dependent on trade, and we
ought to see the carriers lording it over merchants,
putting up this one and putting down that, as soon
as bankers. The merchants should cringe and
bend the pliant knee to one as soon as the other.
But the banks in usurping the cotton trade and
taking that portion of business from the merchants,
have got badly bit, and we are glad of it. The
bank worshippers will say as usual, this is enmity
to banks; but we care not for that. We are not,
never were, and never shall be enemies of bank-
ing in its legitimate sphere; but we are, have been,
and always shall be opposed to its abuses.

a fire broke out in the building in Commerce St.,
owned by TuHOMA K. BRACE, Esg., and occupied
as a wholesale grocery and commission store, by
Col. CHARLES H. NORTHAM. The store was filled
with valuable goods, most of which were destroyed.
The goods were insured for $11,000, which we
understand will cover those on commission.
The firemen were unable to save the building,
though its present appearance evidently evinces
that their efforts were well directed. Some of the
young men connected with the fire department,
distinguished themselves by extraordinary exer-
tions; they were seen almost directly under the
falling timbers, amidst flames and smoke, directing
the hose and conducting the water in the most ad-
vantageous manner. There were four lines form-
ed from the river, and for four hours the engines
were kept in motion, without an intermission of
even five minutes.

-jr We have received an advertisement from

As it is of such a nature that the advertiser cannot

Mr. Mackenzie's Imprisonment.
McNab came over from Canada and invaded
our territory at midnight, and assassin like, mur-
dered unarmed citizens in their sleep; and for a
deed like this has been rewarded by his sovereign
with the honors of Knighthood. McKenzie
craved the aid of our citizens in behalf of his
suffering brethren in Canada. who had been driven
to resistance by long continued acts of tyranny
and oppression-doing what Benjamin Franklin
did in our behalf in France, and by the verdict of
an American jury andt the sentence of an Ameri-
can judge, he is incarcerated in a prison. We
venerate the memory of Franklin, and all the
world honors his name for doing that for which
we have imprisoned McKenrzie. Are we about
to disown our origin and consign the memory and
the names uf 6 i'fViti rfftm atiTyhrhers to-rhe care
of the upholders of the cause of "legitimacy," of
which McNab may be taken as the worthy repre-
sentative? To be consistent after the imprison-
ment of McKenzie, we should do this and more,
we should order the Declaration of Independ-
ence and the bones of the men who composed the
Revolutionary Congress, to be burnt by the com-
mon hangman. For one, Messrs. Editors, I am
not prepared for this, nor am I prepared to sanc-
tion, approve, or tolerate the imprisonment of
McKenzie, for acts for which I shall ever honor
his name as I do that of every other man who has
devoted himself to the same cause, with equal
zeal, courage and fidelity. I disown the deed, and
cry shame on those who give it countenance; and
I call upon my countrymen who yet heartily sub-
scribe to the doctrines contained in our Declara-
tion of Independence, to cry aloud and spare not,
until this foul stain is removed from the face of
ONE WHO HOLDS TO THE CREED OF '76.
Messrs Editors-I noticed in a late Daily Cour-
ant, and I confess with no little astonishment,
"the Life and Claracter of Thomas Jefferson," by
THEODORE DWIGHT, announced as in the press,
and nearly ready to appear.
With what precise motive the work was under-
taken I will not take it upon me to decide, in ad-
vance of the publication; but so much is certain,
that the character of the writer warrants the pre-
sumption that it was with no good, worthy or
Avarice is peculiarly the passion of advanced
age, when it often becomes so strong as to swal-
low up its kindred passions, envy, malice, and all
uncharitableness; and if from a motive wholly
mercenary, Theodore Dwight has taken upon
himself the office of biographer of Thomas Jeffer-
son, the work may not be such as would be expect-
ed from his pen.
The fame of that great Apostle of Liberty is
now dear to the great mass oi his surviving coun-
trymen, and to ensure the sale of his work, Theo-
dore Dwight may speak of him in terms of com-
mendation, and this is all the admirers of Mr. Jef-
ferson have to fear from the forth coming work.
There is but one way left in which the Secreta-
of the Hartford Convention has it in his power to
wound the fame of the author of the Declaration
of Independence, and that is by praising him.
May heaven preserve it from that stain, is the
prayer of A DEMOCRAT OF '98.

Mr. Editor:-It is much to be regretted that
there are some creatures in the world, who to
prove they possess the gift of falsehood and stupid-
ity, should deem it necessary to scribble over the
broadside of a newspaper, when they might de-
monstrate the fact beyond dispute in a single para-
The writer of-this article was led to this reflec-
tion by reading in the Daily Courant of July 24th,
an article signed "Seventy Six."
The article bears the impress of having been
executed by the Executive Milk Snake, a wriggling
thing trussed in an eel-skin, who lies nights around
the Governor's cucumbers to keep off the bugs, on
the same principle that Billy-goats protect crea-
tures of nobler growth from flies. If he is Aome-
times permitted to lick up the crumbs that fall
from his Excellency's table,itis no reason %hy the
editor of the Courant should permit him to occupy
the whole of his paper to defame and belie a body
of citizens, who have kept their "heels off his
head" in disobedience of scripture. -
Doubtless the Celebration at East Granby, and
the sentiment of the guests were not in accor-
dance with the political feelings of the federal
Courant or its correspondent; neither did the ora-
tor cater for their tastes, nor hide their iniquities
I through fear, or divulge them from malice. It
was a meeting of independent freemen who cele-
brated the day according to their own sense of
propriety-who took the responsibility, not of in-
vitiag traitors or the descendants of traitors to their
feast, but of dragging them by the forelock to the
altar of public opinion. If the Courant is dissat-
isfied with the proceeding-, it furnishes abundant
evidence to every lover of his country, that the
sacredness of the day was properly observed. It
is needless to say that the statements of the Milk
Snake in regard to the Celebration, are recreantly
base, and villanously false; those who were there
know them to be so; and if the subscribers of the
Courant believe them, it is only a small item in the
Great Ledger where their sins are registered.
The Milk Snake must have drunk from the
Bantum's"Pierian Spring" in Kingsley Street, to
engender so much venom. His heaviest pop-gun
is,discharged at the orator, "with whom," he says
"he has not yet enjoyed the felicity of any acquain-
tance ;" so much is true, and it is to this truth the
orator is indebted for a fair name and honest repu-
tation among men.
HIe, in his envious leanness-so lean he cannot
make a shadow that would hiot be ashamed to fol-
low him, calls the orator, Sir John Falstaff-a
man of bulk-!" Even in that character his opinion
of the Milk Snake is already recorded in the histo-
ry which the Knight gives of Jmstice Shallow.
"This same starved Justice hath done nothing
but prate to me of the wildness of his youth, and
the feats he hath done about Turnbull Street; and
every third word a lie, duer paid them the Turk's
tribute. I do remember him at Clements Inn, like
a man made after supperof a cheese-paring: when
he was naked, he was, for all the world, like a
forked redish; with a head fantastically carved up-
onit with a knife: he was so forlorn, that his di-
mensions to any thick sight were invincible."
The description holds good throughout, and
may be found by those who are curious to read it,
in the "2d part of King Henry 4th, Act 3d, the last
of scene 2d.
I will now close by proposing to the Secretary
to rub down his limbs with a little good brandy,
and for the sport of the citizens, as the dog.law is
in force and no fights among them can be witness-
ed, let him bring out the Bantium, and the Govern.
or the Milk Snake and match them on a wager. It
is not fair to let them both loose at the same time
on an unoffending citizen, yet if such is the game,
if I have formed a proper estimate of the object
of their attack, he will never cry "peccavi." but
his motto will be, "go it, Bantum I--go it Milk
Snake !" EAST GRANBY.
Mr. Editor:-It is generally understood that
during the absence of Mr. Cushman, the Northern
Courier has been edited by Melvin Copeland.
Not satisfied that the Legislature in pity refused
to call the yeas and nays on the question "whether
he was a man of common sense," but passed itover
to the next Session among the unfinished business,
he is now as it is supposed writing letters in the
columns of the Courier to convince the public he is
a man of "common sense," and an attack on him
is a direct attack on the Mechanics generally.
Such "soft soap" will not go; I am a mechanic
he says in praise of himself ani his conspicuous-
ness among mechanics the better, and the only
advice a majority of the fraternity hold give him
is the advice athe mother gave her son, "keep your
mouth shut, and the world will not know you are
a fool." I for one should be very sorry that an
estimate of the mechanics of this county should
be formed from the characters of Coapeiand .and
McKee, who have been brawling about the State
for the past year crying, and telling the people
"how their families were suffering for bread..'
If they have not already disgraced the mechan-
ics by such acts, they had better go to work at
their trades, and the dearth of bread in their fami-
lies will vanish.
A MECHANIC OF HARTFORD COUNTY.
f-One of the editors of the N.Y. New Era, who
was at Hudson on the day the President arrived
there, relates the following incident which occurred
at that time:
INCIDENT AT HUDSON.-We were walking
along the main street, when we were introduced
to an old soldier of the Revolution, who was sit-
ting by the way side in the shade. He told us that
he was nealy 90 years old, that he could not walk
much, but had crawled out to see a Democratic
President. More than 30 years ago he gave me
my tickets at an election, and we have always vo-,
ted together since. After the procession had gone
by, as we passed the old man, he stopped us, and
with a hearty shake of the hand, a moistened eye
and a trembling voice, he said, "He saw me-he
knew me-he nodded to me, and only let me live
to see him President once more and then I shall be
ready to die."
Hiram Powers, the young sculptor of Cincin-
nati, is at present residing at Florence Italy. Ac-
cording to the Cincinnati Journal, he has lately
completed three marble busts, which are very
much admired by all the Italian artists that have
seen them, and he has five others in a state of
forwardness, besides having modelled nine new
busts. He is freely offered for every likeness he
undertakes, nearly twice as much as is paid to any
of the Florentine sculptors.
CONSERVATISM AMONG THE PILGRIMS.-George
Bancroft, in a letter sent to to the celebration of
the 4th, at East Abington (Mass.) says: "The
Pilgrims had experienced in Conservatism. The
first Conservative on record, connected with our
Republic, was Robert Brown, who had once pro-
fessed the principles of Robinson and Bradford,
the same, in essence, with the principles of Jeffer-
son and Franklin. And his fate was the usual and
the merited fate of men who are false to the truths
on which popular freedom is founded. After con-
stituting himself leader in the cause of reform, he
made terms with the aristocracy,and lost his honor,
while he but slightly and transiently benefitted his
fortunes. "He forsook the Lord," says honest
Robinson, so the Lord forsook him."-But God
did not forsake the Pilgrims; and is not all history
a warrant for the faith,that his Providence is ever
wrtchful over the cause of reform, of freedom,
and of the power of the people.
A T -. '- --% -
Tus CONNECTICun DEFAULTER.-The St. Louis
Republican of the 8th inst. says:. We learn that
the sheriff of Hartford County, Connecticut, ar-
rived in this city last week, and left yesterday on
his return. Ile camewe are credibly informed, to
induce Charles Spencer, the late cashier of the
Phoenix Bank of Litehfield, whowas arrested in
thisplace for an alleged defalcatioano return home.
The sheriff represents, that upon an examination
of his accounts, the whole defalcetion, did not
amount to more than 5,000, dollars, and that this
occurred from the extravagances ol his wife, and
not-from his own default. The bank is lather
satisfied that he has no money or very little with
him, and as an evidence of his honesty, it is said
that when he passed through New York, a large
sum of money belonging to the bank was on de-
posit in one of the New York banks, to his credit,
which he might have drawn had he been disposed
but that he did not touch a cent of it. The sheriff,
we understand, came not in, his official capacity,
but as a friend, to induce him to return, and states
that he was authorized on the part of the bank,
to assure Spencer that no prosecution would be
had, and that if he would accept it he could retain
his place in the bank. We arn sorry to learn that
the sheriff's mission has been unsuccessful, Spen-
cer having left here, it is believed, for Texas.
THE BOUNDARY.-The following is an extract
from a London letter in the Quebee Gazette, dated
"I think you may take it as certain, that a spe-'
cial convention has either left this country, or will
speedily be sent to America, for arranging the
basis of a settlement of the disputes with the Gov-
ernment of the United States, relative to the boun-
"Her Majesty's advocate, Sir John Dodson,
has, for some time, been engaged in drawing up
this convention, which, I am told, is in strict con-
formity with the instructions sent to the American
Minister at our court. The other mentioned acts,
I am not at liberty, at present, to communicate. But
I think the knotty point is in a fair train of ar-
The following lines were written by Mr. Leg-
gett a few days before his death-they were the
last from his pen:-
Why, what is death, but life
In other forms ofbeing? life without
The coarser attributes of man, the dull
And momently decaying frame which holds
The etherial spirit in, and binds it down
To brotherhood with brutes' There's no such thing
As death: what's called so is but the beginning
Of new existence a fresh segment in
The eternal round of change."

to other Seminaries of the highest order.

CONSUMPTION CAN BE CURED, BY
DR. KELLEY'S NATIVE PULMONICON.
The opinion that this complaint is incura-
ble, has so long and so generally prevailed, owing
altogether to the incorrect mode. -adopted for its
cure, that it is now somewhat difficult to contend
against this popular prejudice. That it can be
cured, is no longer a matter of doubt-fact demon-
strate it! Consumption is a disease of the lungs;
which, if not arrested, forms tubercles or ulcers
upon them. The purulent matter effused from
those ulcers unites with the oxygen of the atmos-
phere, thereby producing a virus, which by its
corroding action, induces such ulcers to enlarge
and become more aggravated. The incessent ac-
tion of the lungs, precludes the possibility of any
scale being formed upon them-they cannot, there-
fore be protected from atmospheric air; neither
is there any possibility of applying medicine direct
to the lungs. External ulcers are cured by their
forming a scale, or an artificial scale may be ap-
plied in the form of a plaster which shall protect
them, and they thus become healed. How were
they healed'I By absorbing the diseased fluid ef-
fused in the site of the ulcer in the system. Upon
the same principle may Consumption be cured.
To effect this purpose, a medicated wrapper is worn
constantly around the body, prepared from such
articles as will produce a determination from the
lungs to the surface-thus absorbing the diseased
fluids from the lungs into the system, and they be-
come healed; whilst at the same time, the virus in
the system is neutralized and rendered harmless,
by a syrup aninistered internally. There exists
much evidence in proof of the curability of this
alarming complaint by this remedy, respecting
which, all necessary information may be obtained
by application at RODERICK WHITE'S Book
Store, No. 12 State street, Agent for the sale of it
in the city of Hartford.

settled point with all who have used the Vegeta-

ly the. best and most efficacious FAMILY MEDI-
CINE that has yet been used in America.
THE RESURRECTION OR PERSIAN
PILLS. Thename of these Pills originated from
the circumstance of the medicine being found on-
ly in the cemetries of Persia. This vegetable
production being of a peculiar kind, led to experi-
ments as to its medical qualities and virtues. In
half a century it became an established medicine
for the diseases of that country. The extract of
this singular production was introduced into some
parts of Europe in the year 1783, and used by ma-
ny celebrated physicians in curing certain diseases,
where all other medicines had been used in vain.
Early in the year 1792, the extract was combined
with a certain vegetable medicine imported from
Dura Baca, in the East Indies, & formed into pills'
The admirable effect of this compound upon the
human system, ledphysicians and families into its
general use. Their long established character,
their universal and healing virtues, the detergent
and cleansing qualities of their specifical action
upon the glandular part of the system, are such ats
will sustain their reputationand general use in the

including those called the Resurrection or Persian
Pills; and the public may rest assured that none
among the whole catalogue has answered a better

I think it my duty to let you know what a great
cure your Pills have performed on me. I had
been sick about 7 years-about 2 years and a halt
confined to my bed. I had been given over as in-
curable, with Consumption, by twelve physicians
of the first standing; my lungs were seriously af-
fected; I had three ulcers gather and break; my
cough was dry and harsh most of the time; my
liver was much swollen, and my stomach very
dyspeptic. I had chills, fever, and night sweat,
accompanied with extreme irritableness of the
nervous system, and other difficulties which I for-
bear to mention. After I was given over, I tried
almost all medicines which were advertised, bat
to no advantage, until I tried your Vegetable Per-
sian Pills. I began to gain in a short time after I
commenced taking them; and, to be brief, be-
fore I took three boxes, I was able to ride out and
take considerable exercise, and at this time I enjoy
good health, and am able to do a good day's work.
If any one wishes a more particular history of my
sufferings, he may call on me, at the corner of
Main and Clinton-streets, Rochester.
