28th October instant, at 12 o'clock M., before the courthouse door
of said county, the following described property, viz :
Lot No. 1, in square No. 54, in the city of Washington, with
two frame tenements thereon ; lot No. 3, in square No. 86, in the
city of Washington. Also, all the resi1'ue of that part of lot No.
3, in square No. 118, in said city, which was conveyed to the late
William P. Gardner by the late John Ott, in the year 1808-
saving and reserving from the operation of the indenture now in

FSHlE tundersigned, believing that acheap daily Whig news-
TB paper at the seat of Government would prove a valuable
auxiliary to the Whig cause during the approaching Presidential
contest, will publish, on the first Monday in November next,
a thorough and decided Whig paper, to be entitled THE WHIG
STANDARD, devoted to the principles of that party, as laid down
in the following declaration by HaNRY CLAY :
1. A sound National Currency, regulated by the will and au-
thority of the Nation.
2. An adequate revenue, with fair protection to American
3. Just restraints on the Executive power, embracing further
restriction on the exercise of the veto.
4. A faithful administration of the public domain, with an
equitable distribution of the proceeds of the sales of it among all
the States.
5. "An honest and economical administration of the General
Government, leaving public officers perfect freedom of thought,
and sf the right of suffrage, but with suitable restraints against
improper interference in elections. .
6. An amendment of the Constitution limiting the incumbent
of the Presidential office to a iinglo term."
To this annunciation we believe every true and ardent Whig
will favorably respond. The hearts of the Whig army, whose
ranks were unbroken, and whose banners floated unstricken dur-
ing the campaign of 1840, must every where swell with glorious
pride at the memory of the past, and their hopes encouraged by
their joyous anticipations of the future. It is true, a nightmare of
treachery now rests upon the energies of the party ; but shall we
not arouse to the importance of tihe political conflict which is about
to ensue I There are at this time four Opposition papers at the
seat of Guvernmefl, each in its way endeavoring to sap the foun-
dations of the Whig party, and blasting the prosperity of the coun-
try by the measures they propose. Shall we not rally against the
foes excited by these emissaries, whose corrupt and atrocious mo-
tives are manifest by their early wranglingfor spoils which they
never can win I We know the response of millions of freemen
will be, "Av, aALLV !" Already the "hum of either army still
sounds;" already the general furbishing of armsna gives dreadful
note of preparation." Then let ours be a bright and death deal-
ing sword in the conflict. Let us fight for relief from our present
oppressions and oppressors. Let us rally under a leader upon
whose banner is inscribed "LIBERTY, ORDEa, THE CONSTIT-n
TIO "-whose great political and personal virtues endear him to
every generous heart, and whose patriotism has never been ex-
celled-let us rally for HENRY CLAY, the statesman, the sage,
the friend of the working man, the idol of his country, which for
forty years, next to his God, has had his chief care.
In addition to the thorough Whig course which this paper will
pursue, its readers will be furnished with earliest local intelli
gence of the cityand District, and the general news of the day.
The daily hour of publication will be 4 o'clock in the evening;
and during the session of Congress a synopsis of its proceedings
willbe given up to that hour by able reporters ; thus enabling us
to transmit abroad, through its columns, whatever of interest may
transpire at the earliest hour.
Tr WIGe STANDARD will be published daily at 10 cents per
week, payable to the carriers. The paper will be mailed to sub-
scribers out of the District at $5 per annum, payable invariably
in advance; or for a shorter period at the above rate.
As soon as the Presidential campaign shall be fairly opened, a
weekly paper, at One Dollar far the campaign, will be publish-
ed for country circulation.
All communications by mail mu sat be post paid, or they will re-
main in the post office.
Whig papers throughout the country will please copy or notice
the above. JNO. T. TOWERS.

Masses. GAics & SZATON : The question, Is East Florida
healthy I is still under investigation.
In my last number a brief review of the vital statistics of
the army of Florida, compared with the army at large and
with the medical statistics of other countries, was concluded;
and now let any unprejudiced person, after an examination of
my second and third numbers, decide whether the great
salubrity of this climate is incontrovertibly established." The
vital statistics of these two numbers consist of extracts from
the Surgeon General's own reports, and from a work com-
piled under his immediate supervision and by his direction-
the Statistical Report on the sickness and mortality in the
army ofthe United States. Now let any disinterested person
judge if this important fact," ("the salubrity of the cli-
mate,") "is proved by statistics in the Surgeon General's of-
fice," as is so confidently asserted by A Physician."
My last communication commenced a brief survey of par-
ticular posts on the Suwannee, closing with Fort Macomb.
This survey will be continued in the present and future num-
bers until every station on the Suwannee is passed in review;
afterwards a few brief remarks will be made in relation to
the country on both banks of tfie river.
Itwas inadvertently stated in my last number that the
mouth of the Santa Fe river is about twelve miles below
Fort Macomb. Although an error in respect to mere dis-
tance is unimportant, so far as the main question is affected,
yet it is desirable that all my assertions prove correct, and I
therefore hasten to rectify the oversight. The mouth of the
Santa Fe is about twenty miles below Fort Macomb.
Post No. 16.-In the review of particular stations in the
vicinity of the Suwannee this post comes next after Fort
Macomb. It is eighteen miles from the Suwannee and six-
teen from Fort White, and was established under the survey
of 1838. It is situated in the pine barren, there being no
hammocks, swamps, or lagoons in the vicinity. The garrison
consisted of one company. About five miles from the poet is
a settlement, which supplied vegetables, poultry, &c. to the
This was considered an excellent station for the Suwannee
region, and the officers of the garrison (medical officer with
the rest) felicitated themselves on their good fortune, consid-
ering this post as safe from the visitation of the fevers of the
country. It continued quite healthy in 1839 until the month
of October, when the severe epidemic which that year over
spread the whole Territory prevailed here also. There were
quite a number of cases of sickness, (intermittent and remit.
tent,) some of them severe ones.
Thus it appears that a new well-ordered post, situated in
the midst of the" piney woods," was obnoxious to the preva-
lent disease of the country.. Nearly the whole company was
affected, and the medical officer was so much broken down,
(having been twasummers in Florida,) asto be obliged to leave
the country for the North. In general, however, the cases at
this station were much milder than at the posts in the vicini-
ty-Forts White, Fanning, and Macomb-showipg a wide
difference between hammock fever and that of the pine barren.
Fort White.-It is proposed to linger a while here, not from
any very pleasant reminiscences, but solely because A Phy
sician" has asserted that cases of bilious fever were of rare
occurrence!" Hear him. "It is well known," says "A
Physician" in his first number, to the medical officers of
Sthe army that the prevalent disease at Fort Mellon, Fort
White, and Fort Fanning (which are situated on rivers
'and contiguous to large swamps, and which have always
Been reputed the most unhealthy positions in the peninsula)
Swas a mild form of intermittent fever, which readily yielded
to treatment, and that cases of bilious fever were of rare
occurrence." "Mild form of intermittent fever!" Cases
of bilious fiever of rare occurrence!"
"A Physician," it seems, has undertaken in the above pas
sage to give testimony for the whole medical corps of the
army. For one, I protest against this wholesale manner of
givingevidence; I choose to tell my own story. For one, I
object to testifying in favor of the salubrity of Fort Mellon,
* Fort White, or Fort Fanning. I know they are very insa-
lubrious. I know that bilious fever" wasexceedingly com-
mon. To be stationed at one of these posts in the sickly
season was a service of real danger; but to be compelled af-
terwards, nolsna volens, to give evidence in favor of its salu-
brity is too bad.
I hope A Physician" will pardon me for questioning the
correctness of the principal assertions contained in the fore-
going paragraph. I beg leave to dissent from them in totl
cato. I must be permitted to deny that the plavalent dis-
ease of fort Mellon, Fort White, and Fort Fanning was a
mild form of intermittent fever;" and also todeny that "cases
of bilious fever were of rare occurrence." And it will be
surprising if there can be found one in ten, or even one in
twenty of the medical officers of the army who does not
know that the above assertions are erroneous.
By the term bilious fever," I suppose A Physician"
means the common remittent of the country. Now let us
have the facts in relation to the mild form of intermittent
fever," and the "rare occurrence of bilious fever" at Fort
This post was established by a detachment of volunteers
in 1837. It is situated on the east or left bank of the Santa
Fe, seven miles by land and ten in the course of the river
from its junction with the Suwannee. It is about twenty-
three miles from Newnansville, eleven from the Blue Springs,
fifteen in the course of the river below the natural bridge,
sixteen from Post No. 16, twenty-two by land from Fort Ma-
comb, and twenty-three by land from Fort Fanning.
The river at this point takes nearly a southwesterly course.
About two hundred and fifty yards from the fort is a.some
what elevated ridge of barren hills. Above, commencing
about forty yards from the site of the fort, is a hammock,
which extends a considerable distance up the river. This
hammock is filled with different kinds of oak, cypress, and
other timber, and beneath the branches of the larger growth
is a tangled thicket of briars, palmetto, &c. The hill (cov-
ered with pines) and hammock together form somewhat of a
semicircle, and within this, directly on the bank of the river,
was old Fort White. The site of the post is about twenty or
twenty five feet above the river at its ordinary stages.
On the opposite or right bank of the river (here about
forty yards wide) is another hammock, which extends a con-
siderable distance up the river and down to the Suwannee.
This bank is lower than the one on which Fort White
stands, and in the rainy season is subject to inundation.
WILLItMS, in his description of Florida, says that "The
Santa Fe rises in a long pond on the ridge of the peninsu-
la. It runs a course of about fifty miles, and receives the
outlet of Sampson's pond or Alligator creek, New river, and
Sanfilaseo above the bridge, and the Echatuckuee below the
bridge. The natural bridge covers the stream for about
three miles. In high freshets the subterraneous passage is
not sufficiently large to receive all the water, and a large
stream passes over it."
This was the case in 1838. During the high water of that
year the right bank was completely submerged from the natu-
ral bridge to the Echatuckuee, and nearly to the Suwannee.
The hammock opposite the fort was entirely under water.
The passage beneath the natural bridge was so totally inade-
quate to the exit of the waters accumulated above that they
rushed over and around the bridge, and the whole of the
right bank was deluged. In 1839 the marks of this inunda-
tion were visible several feet from the ground on the trees of
the hammock over against the fort. This bank is frequently
under water during the rainy season, and is liable to an an-
nual inoundation. Many persons believed the sickness in
1839 was occasioned by the inundation of 1838, and it no

doubt had its influence.
In my next number we will proceed to the consideration of
the" mild form of intermittent fever" and the "rare occur-
rence of bilious fever" at this post.
Since commencing the present communication, I have seen
number six of "A Physician's" series, containing some
things which may be noticed at this time, and more which
will be attended to hereafter. A Physician" says that I
" undertake to show by documentary evidence that almost the
'entire peninsula is not only positively unhealthy, but will
'continue to be so. This is certainly a hard fate for East
' Florida, especially if the prophetic portion of your corres-
' pondent's assertion can be proved by documentary evidence."
In the above passage, A Physician" seems disposed to be
a little facetious. If he can have a laugh at my expense, let
him enjoy It. I like to see people cheerful and happy. He
seems to have nothing in this world to trouble him. Unplea-
sant dreams he has not-his visions are of rich lands, par
excellence," and the argentum vivum.
But did I undertake" to show what "A Physician" as-
serts I Let us see. My language, in the first number, was
as follows: In i y future numbers it will be made to appear
the from Surgeon General's reports and other sources, that
0l f(rwps |a ast Florida sutied excsdirglyt durin the

' whole war, from dise incident to thelMhate; that the
'inhabitants were obnouus to the same dheases as the
'troops, and from the samr uses; in ,hoit, it sll be shown
that almost the entire peninsula, so far from being healthy,
is, and will continue to be, positively unhealthy."
Did I undertake" a very hazardous task when the above
positions were put forth 1 I do not think so. Suppose we
look at them again, laid down in a somewhat more formal
I. It will be made to appear, from the Surgeon General's
reports and other sources, that the troops in East Florida suf-
fered exceedingly during the whole war, from diseases inci-
dent to the climate.
IL. It will be made to appear that the inhabitants were ob-
noxious to the same diseases as the troops, and from the same
Ill. It will be shown that almost the entire peninsula, so
far from being healthy, is, and will continue to be, positively
Do the above positions contain more than can be substan-
tiated 1 I think not. If I fail to prove them to the satisfac-
tion of every candid mind, I am a souced gurnet." Did I
mention, in the prophetic portion, (the third proposition,)
"documentary evidence?" Admit that I did "undertake to
show by documentary evidence that almost the entire penin-
sula is not only positively unhealthy, but will continue to be
'so," would tle position be so very absurd N1
The fact," says Howard in his Introduction to Meteoro-
logy, now fully ascertained, of the existence of periodical
'visitations in the temperature of the years and seasons, in
our own climate, which probably obtains in all parts of the
world, modified according to the latitude and elevation of
the place, should incite us to a more constant observation
and diligent study of the phenomena, since we may thus
become qualified to avail ourselves of a considerable degree
of foreknowledge of these changes."
"In all the phenomena of the material world," says Dugald
Stewart, the uniformity in the order of events is conceived
by us to be complete and infallible; insomuch that, to be
Assured of the same result from a repetition of the same ex-
periment, we require only to be satisfied that both have been
made in circumstances precisely similar. It is from this ap-
prehended analogy between the future and the past, that
historical knowledge derives the whole of its value; and
were the analogy completely to fail, the records of former
ages would, in point of utility, rank with the fictions of poe
'try." * The evidence of experience," says the
same writer, reaches to an anticipation of the future from
the past, in instances where the same cause continues to
operate in circumstances exactly similar." ** *'
* "In some of the conclusions under our consideration
with respect to contingent truths, a species of evidence is
admitted; I mean the evidence of testimony. How few are
the instances in which the data rest on the evidence of our
own senses ; and yet our confidence in the result is not on
that account in the smallest degree weakened."
The laws of Nature, then, being both unalterable and in
fallible, and experience enabling .us to anticipate the future
from the past, where the same cause continues to act in simi-
lar circumstances, the evidence of testimony, (the experience
ofothers,) in the form of history, meteorology, authentic j.ur-
nals and reports, statistics, &c., showing the operation of
these laws, may be adduced as documentary evidence" in
proof of the probable future salubrity or insalubrity of a
Districts of country near the tropics, with the mean tern
perature of the summer months as high as eighty degrees, a
humid atmosphere, muddy lakes, foul lagoons, low grounds
which have been partially inundated, stagnant water, and de-
caying vegetable matter, must abound in miasmatic disease:
add to all these dead animal matters or exuv.a, and it does
not require the gift of prophecy to foretell the frequent occur-
rence of diseases of a malignant character. It is a law of Na-
ture; experience abundantly verifies it; and the evidence. of
testimony will be hereafter adduced as documentary evi-
dence." The country to which the above will apply is East
This kind of evidence is daily accumulating, and what was
considered the "prophetic portion" of my first number is now
matter of history. In conformity to certain laws before men-
tioned, I ventured to predict that East Florida would con-
tinue to be unhealthy. In confirmation of the correctness of
my opinion, I will refer to a letter lately published, dated
Jacksonville, (E. F.) Tropical Plant office, September 4th:
Turn we," says this letter, to the interior of Florida, the
west of the St. Johns, east of the Suwannee, and hear the
distressing accounts that daily reach us from those who have
settled in and about the great lakes and hammocks of that
region. Crops overgrown with weeds, and lost to all use;
' one half of their families dead and broken down-dispirited
'in heart and feelings," &c. This letter will be published in
full hereafter in the proper place. This is the first piece of
documentary evidence, and "A Physician" will ere long see
the rest.
"A Physician" still clings to the Surgeon General's re-
ports, but has never given a syllable of his language. He
deals, as usual, in vague general assertions. Let him turn
to my second number and he will find alt that the Surgeon
General has ever said in relation to the climate and health of
Florida. In both my second and third numbers will be found
copious extracts from his army medical statistics. But A
Physician" cautiously avoids giving a single quotation. If
he relies on the strong support of the Surgeon General, why
not manifest itI Why not give his own words, which with
most 'persons will go quite as far as the ipse dixit of A
Physician." Increase thine army, and come out." Let
him prove that "three years ofwsubsequent observation have
'tended still further to dissipate this error respecting the health
of the peninsula." Why not give us the statistics 1 They
are worth a host of assertions. Let us have the vital statis-
tics of 1840, 1841, and 1842, and we can then judge for our-
selvesi I would like to see his statistics in relation to the
sickness and mortality of 1841. As his time seems to be
very valuable, he may have mine for that year, which are
already made out in my third number, and will save him much
trouble-provided he will not mangle them quite so badly as
he has done the pretended quotations from my first commu-
nication. If he have any statistics, any credible witnesses,
let him produce them. But I beg heave to deny that the cli-
mate of East Florida is healthy ; that the salubrity of this
climate is incritrovertibly established ;" fhat it is "proved
by statistics in the Surgeon General's office ;" that it was
" officially reported three years ago by Surgeon General Law-
son ;" that it is proved by official medical reports made re-
gularly from every district in the peninsula during a period of
nearly seven years ;" that it is attested by the unanimous
sentiment of those medical officers who have served longest
in the war, and had most experience in the diseases of the
country ;" and, finally, I deny the whole of A Physician's"
assertions in relation to the salubrity of East Florida. Where
is his proof'] There is not a particle of it, and positive as-
sertions alone never answer the purpose intended, in regard
to the climate and health of a country. I call for the evidence.
A Physician" "cannot consent to follow me to the coun-
tries of the Pawnees and Choctaws," &c. Who first wan-
dered to the Soutbhwest'l I wandered there on his trait, not
he on mine; and I intend to pursue his zigzag course until
the numerous misstatements in all his six numbers are noticed.
He accuses me of irrelevancy. If he will look at my first
three numbers he will, I am persuaded, find some things which
are relevant. I mentioned in my first sentence that my de-
sign was to notice the numerous erroneous statements
contained in 'A Physician's' communications." I accord-
ingly noticed his erroneous assertions in relation to the

" comfortable quarters" in the southwestern division of our
army. The inference would be that, "stationed in comfort-
able quarters," the regiments on thesouthwestern frontier had
done no service; I, on the contrary, endeavored to show that
they had performed some service. He asserts that our army
in Florida during this period averaged about 6,000 men. I
have shown that if he had said about 3,000, he would have
been near the truth. He asserts that the proportion of
deaths in the Florida army, (including those who were
killed in battle,) during the first four years of the war, was
as but one to two, compared with those of the southwestern
division of our army," making the mortality of the latter 12 2
per cent.; I have shown that it did not amount to one-half
that ratio. I am inclined to think if 1 A Physician" will
examine the vital statistics of my three preceding communi-
cations, he will, with the irrelevant matter, find much that
is relevant.
I agree unhesitatingly to one thing, that the number of
troops alone, whether the number be 3,000, 6,000, or
20,000," is of no consequence; it is the ratio per centum of
sickness and mortality, so studiously avoided by A Physi-
cian," which is important. It is plain, however, that he does
not relish my statistics.
"A Physician" says: "This is certainly a hard fate for
East Florida." The fate of the immigrant is a hard one.
Induced, perhaps by false representations, certainly by hopes
whih will laeveY be 0 lifed, to leave the hwme of hi fWthol

and settle in this country, his wife and children fall around
him, and he is "sorry in soul that they were ever connected
with it." This is no fancy picture; it is the language of
reality. I quote from the Jacksonville letter; and many a one
ere this is sorry in soul." The fate of the immigrant is to
be pitied. East Florida (and all Florida) will be what
it has always been, a" land of darkness and shadows, where
pestilence walketh at noonday."
In my first number I used the following language: The
hardships and sufferings of 1834 will not soon be forgotten ;'
but A Physician," very unfairly, makes it read as "the
not soon to be forgotten hardships," &c. I beg leave to as-
sure him that this not soon to be forgotten and much to be
lamented" passage is not quoted correctly. MARYATT'S
Dominie suspected himself when he began to quote wrong,
and it certainly shows obliquity of some kind.
A Physician" has much to say of the Southwest. I have
only to ask him to read both my second and third numbers.
I wish him to review them critically. But why this propen-
sity to wander to the Southwest '1 Is it by making a false to
avoid the main issueI The position laid down in his first
number must be adhered to ; it must not be changed to the
Southwest. The position is this: The great salubrity of
this climate is incontrovertibly established." Having once
followed him to the Southwest, I feel no disposition either
to waste my time or your columns with irrelevant discussion."'

Gaymont, and, conjunctively, about forty five valuable negroes,
with the growing crops, stocks, and utensils, household furniture,
and appurtenances of every kind. It comprises 2,200 acres ;
about one moiety of which is arable, and the improvement exhi-
bited by a considerable proportion of which strikingly demon-
strates its capacity for a very high degree of fertility from the
use of marl, which abounds in various convenient points. The
balance is in timber and pasture. The buildings of every descrip-
tin are sufficiently large and commodious, the site beautiful, and
the neighborhood scarcely surpassed in Virginia; and, although
not exempt from that class of diseases usually incident to tide-
water, this objection loses much of its force in the consideration
that they are brief in their duration, mild in their character, and
that a refuge, convenient and of a security which the experience
f many years has proved to be almost absolute, is afforded in the
vicinity of the Rappahannock Academy or the town of Port Royal,
between which it is equi-distant two and a half miles. The only
condition required of the purchaser will be security for the punc-

perty is in Berkeley county, Virginia; itis situated at Dam
No. 5, on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and the Potoman river.
The dam is built across that river ; it cost $60,000 ; has a fall of
seventeen feet nine inches at low water, and is kept in repair by
the Canal .ompany. The merchant mill is sixty by seventy
feet, has three full stories besides the roof. It is built most sub-
stantially, and contains more than twelve thousand perches of
masonry. It has two run of stones, with the privilege of two
more, for which the machinery is now ready. A frame mill also
is adjoining, having two rujf stones, with a saw mill running
two saws, with circular snwsfor butts, &c. There are also a kiln
for drying corn, corn-houses, a large and well-finished brick
house, containing thirteen rooms, with the necessary offices,
together with five other substantial and commodious houses cal-
culated for several families. There are ten acres of land attached
to the premises, but as much more would be sa ld as might ba de-
sirable. This property is abundantly supplied with excellent
water, and is one of the most healthy in the county, being free

from all bilious and autumnal diseases. It is immediately ad-
ioining the Canal, and is in the finest and most fertile section of
Virginia and Maryland, being within seven miles of the county of
Franklin,i n Pennsylvania, and about four miles from the Hedgs-
ville depot of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. It is adapted to
a cotton or wool factory, being in the midst of a dense white po-
pulation, with the price of labor and living very cheap. On the
completion of the Canal or Railroad, it will be in direct commu-
nication with the wool-growing counties of western Virginia and
Pennsylvania. This property is subject to a water rent of 8100
per annum to the Canal Company, and of $30 a year rent on one

Letter from H. W. HILLIARD, Chargi d'Afaires
of the United States at Brussels.

B-os"aLs, Auousr 28, 1843.
MY DzAR SIR : Belgium possesses some of the finest spe-
cimens of Gothic architecture which are to be found in Eu-
rope, and a proper appreciation of these fine old buildings is
exhibited in the appropriations annually made by the 9loverti.
ment for their restoration. Monuments of the genius, wealth,
splendor, and enterprise of other times, they ought to be re-
stored ; for, if they rebuke the present generation, and make
its works seem poor and tame, they serve to keep alive the
memory of a more glorious age, and they may yet form the
taste and encourage the efforts of a future race. The Hotel
de Ville of Brussels is one of the very finest of these build-
ings, and my attention has been particularly called to it by
looking into a recent notice of the history of Charles V. It
was in this building that the remarkable event of his resig-
nation took place. The Hotel de Ville stands in a fine old
square nearly in the centre of the city, called the Grande
Place, and is surrounded by buildings worthy of its neigh-
borhood. The ground upon which it stands is low, and was
originally a marhlk so that in preparing the foundation it is
said to have been necessary to lay down bullocks' hides. The
building was begun in 1400 and finished in forty-two years.
The steeple, the height of which is three hundred and sixty-
four feet, is an exquisite piece of open-work, and the appear-
ance of it is graceful beyond description. It resembles the
spire of the Cathedral at Antwerp, which Napoleon admired
so much and compared to Mechlin lace. The steeple is sur-
mounted by a figure of St. Michael, seventeen feet high,
which serves the purpose of a weathercock. This steeple is
not in the centre of the building, and it is related, with not
much claim to our faith, that when the artist discovered it he
destroyed himself. It is a conspicuous object from every part
of the city; but the Park in the upper part of the city affords
the finest view; for, the ground being much higher than that
on which the building stands, the steeple is seen in all its
proportions standing out against the sky. I have often ob-
served it from this point when the setting sun was pouring
its parting lustre through it, and covering St. Michael with a
blaze of glory. The interior of the building presents a style
of magnificence unknown in the works of the present day.
The rich carving, the profuse gilding, the painted ceilings
whose colors are unfading, all belong to another age. The
tapestries are fine, and display wonderful taste and skill;
some of them are more than three hundred years old; others
are more modern, having been made about a century and a
half since. The pieces are historical, some of them repre-
senting scenes in the life of Clovis, his battles, baptism, mar
riage, and death. Of the more modern tapestries, the finest
represent the resignation of Charles the Fifth.
The historical associations which belong to the Hotel de
Ville are numerous and important, but the one best known to
the world is that to which 1 have already referred. It was
here that the Emperor Charles the Fifth, in full possession of
power, resigned his kingdoms to his son Philip. It is well
known that Charles had long contemplated this step. It is
related of him that many years before, when passing the
Monastery of St. Justus in Estremadura, struck with its de-
lightful situation, he remarked to some of his attendants that
this was a place to which Dioclesian might have retired with
pleasure. It is probable that the example of this Emperor
exerted a great influenceover the mind of Charles. An ex-
ample so illustrious once brought before the mind of a young
Prince, in its just proportions, could not well be lost from it.
In the language of an elegant historian, Dioclesian is per-
' haps the only Prince capable of holding the reins of Gov-
' eminent who ever resigned them from deliberate choice, and
' who continued during many years to enjoy the tranquillity
' of retirement without fetching one penitent sigh or casting
back one look of desire towards the power and dignity which
' he had abandoned."
The motives which influenced Charles to resign his power
have been the subject of much inquiry, and several authors
have sought.in some new speculation to satisfy themselves
and the world that they had discovered the causes which
brought about so remarkable a result; but the opinion of Dr
Robertson is perhaps entitled to more credit than any other,
and he attributes it to the decline of Charles's health. As
the time approached for executing the scheme, Charles made
every preparation for giving to it the highest possible splen-
dor, as well as solemnity. Philip, who Was then residing in
England, was invited to Brussels, and an order was issued
for the assembling of the States of the Low Countries. On
the day appointed for the execution of this purpose, which
caused so much astonishment throughout Europe, the twenty-
fifth October, 1555, Charles, entering the Hotel de Ville,
seated himself for the last time in the Chair of State." The
scene must have been one of imposing grandeur. On one
side of the Chair of State in which Charles was seated was
seen his son Philip, about to receive the splendid gift of which
his father had grown weary ; and on the other side his sister,
Mary, tueen of Hungary and Regent of the Netherlands,
while behind him thronged the grandees of Spain, and before
him, filling the magnificent hall, were the assembled Stales.
The history of the event is well known, and I felt its im-
pressiveness but a day or two since, when standing in the hall
where it occurred and calling up the scene: a great ruler, ac-
customed to entertain vast schemes of ambition, in the full
possession of power, at the age of fifty-six years, here, in the
presence of an illustrious assemblage who thronged about
their Prince for the last time, resigned his authority and re.
tired to seek in the midst of rural scenes that repose which
a soul so long shaken with the storms of State needed, and
to prepare, in the seclusion of a monastery whose quiet beauty
had long since charmed him, for taking leave of scenes in
which he had borne so great a part and entering upon those
of an unseen but eternal world.
Very respectfully, and very truly, yours,
To F. MARKET, Jr. Esq.
Corresponding Secretary of the National Institute.

Letter from JOHN PARROTT, Consul of the United
States at Mazatlan.

Sins: Feeling a deep interest in the prosperity of the Na-
tional Institute for the Promotion of Science, recently found-
ed in this capital, 1 have spared neither pains nor expense in

Letter from JAMBS B. MURRAY, Esq., enclosing a
letter of Wm. RAILTON, Esq., Architect of the
Nelson Monument.
NEw YORK, SEPTEMBRa 21, 1843.
DEAR SIRta: I have the pleasure to enclose to you a letter from
WILLIAM RAILTON, Esq. of London, the architect of the monu-
ment to Admiral NELSON, now in progress of completion in
Trafalgar Square, requesting the acceptance of a model of
that beautiful structure, and a fac simile in miniature di-
mensions corresponding with the model of the scaffolding by
means of which it was reared.
Being one of those who have long deplored the absence
of a suitable testimonial to the memory of him who was
"first in peace, first in war, and first in the hearts of his
countrymen," it occurred to me at the first sight of this ex-
hibition of Mr. Railton's skill that it was precisely what we
wanted, and what ought to be erected at some conspicuous
point in every State of our Confederacy, and that the Na-
tional Institute would be the most proper depository of this
model if it could be procured.
Having been favored with an introduction to Mr. Railton,
and intimating to him these views, he most promptly second-
ed them, expressing his admiration of the memory of the
great captain of our political salvation, and hibe desire to contri-
bute at his own expense by placing this model and scaffold-
ing at my disposal.
They have just arrived in the ship Switzerland from Lon-
don, and I have transferred them, packed securely in three
boxes, on board the schooner Frank, bound to Washington,
and I trust they will arrive safely, and prove an acquisition
to your valuable collection.
It has gratified me to have been even in a remote degree
instrumental in serving so good a cause, and I remain, with
great respect, dear sir, your most obedient servant,
To F. MAsKe, Jr. Esq.
Corresponding Secretary of /the National Institute.
12, REGuaINTr STREET, LONDON, JULY 28, 1843.
SmI: It having been intimated to me that a model of the
Nelson Column in Trafalgar Square, London, now erecting
under my direction, together with a model of the scaffolding,
would be acceptable to your National Institute, I readily
availed myself of the kind (ifer of my friend, Mr. MURRAY,
to present one, and I shall be highly flattered should it be
considered worthy of a place in the collection of your In-
I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant,

A Warehouse, on an extensive scale, exclusively
for Printed Calicoes,
To supply the city and interior trade by the piece or package.
By confining their attention entirely and exclusively to this one
article, Lee & Brewster are enabled not only to exhibit a more
extensive and beautiful assortment than is to be found elsewhere,

will be constantly added all the new and desirable patterns s they
appear in the market, besides many which will be printed exclu-
sively for their own sales.

The accident to the King of Sweden (a fall) was
followed by fainting fits, which must be considered
ominous at his advanced age. No difficulty for the
succession of Prince OSCAR is foreseen. Two opu-
lent members of the British Society of Friends
lately visited Stockholm to promote the abolition of
slavery in the Swedish possessions. It is added
that they did not succeed at court. The popular
disturbances at Hamburg, Leipsic, and Carlsruhe
were serious, and necessitated a multitude of arrests.
The Convention held at Bordeaux of delegates
from the wine interests, fell into violent debates, and
some very unfriendly speeches to the Government
were delivered. The Southern departments com-
plain of being postponed to the Northern : they will
extort by clamor on real grievances a larger share
)of Ministerial favor and aid. Two distinguished
gentlemen just from Italy paid me a visit yesterday,
and gave me instructive details of the situation of
the peninsula. Smuggling was the real origin of the
late partial insurrection in the Papal States: con-
spiracies are always ready for the improvement of
opportunity in all the great divisions of Italy : they
disclose themselves foolishly ; they only augment the
power of the authorities, and, in particular, the ir-
resistible means and unremitting watch of Austria.
Disorders and manifestations of revolt at Rome are
owing as much to the laxity and leniency of the
ecclesiastical rule as to any other cause. In gene-
ral the peninsula thrives ; elementary education is
diffused; commerce enlarged ;internal improvement
studied and prosecuted by the Governments; the
patriots, so called, despair of any efficient co-
operation from without: the confidence of the rulers
begets indulgence or latitude for the press and lib-
eral ideas and studies: the Austrian scheme of a
Zoll Verein is thwarted at Turin and Naples by
both British and French diplomacy. The Journal
des Debats thinks the true elements of a Southern
Commercial League are in France, with Belgium,
Spain, Savoy, and Switzerland. How and when
can they be combined ? The Scientific Congress
of France (the title) has just terminated at Angers
its eleventh session. Six hundred members and
guests assembled. They discussed earnestly a
scheme of steam navigation and commercial inter-
course for the Amazon river, submitted by Don
VICENTE PAZOS, Consul General of Bolivia for
Great Britain. It was mooted whether a great
Franco-Ainerican University could be soon esta-
blished in a port of French Guiana. I may whis-
per that the learned bodies of Paris concede no
importance to the transactions of the said Congress.
It is officially announced that the French trans-
atlantic lines of steamers will be in operation in a
few months. The first in order -is from Havre to
New York, to which four are allotted ; departure of
a boat every fifteen days; average passage fifteen
days ; ten days in the American port; twenty at
Cherbourg for repairs, and so forth. This convey-
ance will be a benefit to the American residents in
Paris, and subserve my humble correspondence for
your readers. The success of the line in respect to
passengers depends on the first voyages, and the
prices, which are not yet determined. I presume
that the New York packets to Havre will be obliged
to reduce their charge, the excess of which above
that of the lines from Great Britain occasions many
persons to embark in England who would prefer
Havre. There is a Government contract advertise-
ment for sixty millions of coal for the French steam-
lines with the ports of the Levant, which evinces the
magnitude of the service. The Paris Society for
the Encouragement of National Industry held its
annual session on the 6th instant and distributed
premiums for specimens of invention and improve-
ment, highly creditable and quite imposing in the
array. Baron THENARD, the chemist, a Peer of
France. presided. The Fresnel light-houses will
be perfected by the prismatic masses of glass"
produced by FRANCOIS, the optician, who obtained
a gold medal for his valuable labors. The pottery
was conspicuous and received prizes: an invention
for "damming or barring rivers and streams, and
relieving them at pleasure, (barrage mobile,) was
pronounced excellent. Electro-chemical plating
with gold and silver had a share of the premiums.
Brilliancy and durability are achieved. A blind
man was rewarded with a medal for a process by
which the blind can write in as small a space as
other persons, and read easily what they have writ-
ten. The very ingenious machine by which this re-
sult is effected was constructed by the man with the
aid of a blind friend. The society is prosperous in
its finances, and offers considerable premiums for
next year. The manager, of the Dublin theatre
netted five thousand dollars by FANNY ELSSLER'S
seven nights. She must have taken something from
the repeal rent. Several columns of the Paris
journals of yesterday and this morning are occupied
by abridgments of O'CoNNELL'S speeches and of
his new address to the British people, which is re-
ceived as a counter-manifesto to the QUEEN'S speech.
His harangues and the speech of the Catholic
Archbishop of TUAM on the 14th instant consume
nearly ten columns of the Dublin Evening Post.
The same journal of the 12th contains a pregnant,
comprehensive document-the Report of the Com-
missioners appointed to take the Census of Ireland
for 1841. I see by an official statement that
the Irish in the British army in 1841 were
above forty-one thousand. The Standard ob-
serves that one-half are from Ulster, and therefore
safe for the Government; and that the other half
are so distributed and disciplined that attempts at
seduction may be defied. Much attention and re-
proof are bestowed in the Paris as well as London
prints on the horrible duel in Louisiana between
MooRs has not escaped severe animadversion, es-
pecially on account of the presence and instigation
of the father of one of the combatants. The Lon-
don Morning Herald of the 18th instant ably ex-
hibits the Louisiana duel and the rencontre between
a French or Italian Count, as the two extremes of
the atrocious and the ridiculous. The Napoleon
affair, of which the manifold covenants and ar-
rangements and rounds and scratches are published
here and in London, is abundantly *burlesque,
and excites the more derision when it is remember-
ed how the extensive travels and abortive attempts
of the Prince and Count to meet were bruited over

the Continent. The proclamation of Don MIGUBL
to the Portuguese is, probably, of Spanish or French
manufacture. At Lisbon no alarm is felt except in
relation to the strife in Spain : England must be
the chief political reliance of the Portuguese Court.
At the latest dates Barcelona was firmer and fiercer
than ever; her former inciters and allies give her
a thorough bombardment: ESPARTERO confined
himself to broad hints trom the fortress. The ru-
lers at Madrid have no security. The ingredients
of the poisoned chalice are, indeed, commended to
their own lips. Their manifestoes repeat the
topics-the very language-of defence and exhor-
tation which the Duke employed rightfully and sin-
ceiely, but which, trom them, are only self-contra-
diction and condemnation. The violence which
factions practise is always excusable-what they
undergo, criminal A semi-official article from
Madrid narrates the flattering reception of two
French gentlemen by the young Queen ISABEL, but
laments that she. is ignorant of the French language.
For this her late guardian, ARGUELLES, is blamed ;
and her present governess, the Marchioness of SAN-
wCtA Cgtu, the devoted proxy of CHiamsTINA, pro-

Inliet that she will soon be able to read the speeches
of Louts PHILIPPE. Count TORENO died on Sa-
turday last in his noble mansion near the Champs
Elysees, An abscess formed in his mouth, and is
said to have produced cerebral fever. He was ro-
bust, and only fifty-six years of age. According to
report, he has left seven millions of francs for his
youthful wife and two children-the spoils of his
administration of the finances at Madrid in 1833
-'34-'35. He speculated sagaciously. His funeral
yesterday was sumptuous. The carriage of Queen
CHRISTINA was in the train. His arms and orders
were borne behind the hearse on two rich velvet
cushions, upheld by two lacqueys. The church of the
Roule was hung in black, the escutcheon of the
grandee of the first class figured every where.
There was a magnificent catafalque in the centre.
Most of the Spaniards of distinction, and a number
of the French haut ton, but no representatives of
Court or Ministry. The corpse was embalmed
by Gannal. From Algiers we hear only of further
military excursions, and of a visit of the Bishop to
Tangiers in a French steamer. His appearance in
his canonicals excited a sensation among the Moors.
The adulteration of milk in our capital during the
warm weather (which continues) has proved fatal
to so many children that it nearly raised an 6meute
in the eastern faubourgs. The hot spell could hardly
pass over without the explosion or detection of a po-
litical plot. You will see that the police has pounced
on a conclave of conspirators who had collected
arms and ammunition and prepared a proclamation.
They are of Ihe working class, unemployed-in-
surgents prompted by desperadoes with higher per-
sonal views. They never combine without a few
spies in the midst of them. We shall have a dra-
matic trial in the criminal court; these heroes from
the tippling shops will pay scot and lot. On one
hand, it is affirmed that the Radical party intended
to frighten away Queen VICTORIA, if she ventured
to Paris, by a diminutive street insurrection ; on
the other, that the Government instigated or con-
trived the plot to explain why she abstained and
was not pressed. The Radicals and extreme Dy-
nastic Opposition have concerted and are prosecut-
ing, by their presses here and throughout the pro-
vinces, a universal reaction" (their boast) against
the fortifications of Paris. The former call for
utter demolition ; the latter would be satisfied for
the moment if the Ministry should abstain from
arming the forts and walls. Without armament
they would be wonderfully fit to baffle a foreign
toe! The three new journals, the Reform, the
State, and the Nation, cry that there must be no
delay-not one stone must remain on another.
Marshal SOULT will soon put this consummation be-
yond the power of any multitude. The "block
houses" within and the bastilles without, which be-
get so terrible a discharge from the press, are ad-
vancing fast to impregnability. The mass of the
bourgeois are indifferent about it; and you would
be surprised at the unconcern or contempt with
which they hear of the discovery of a plot like the
one now under investigation. The immense majo-
rity of France are averse to any kind of revolution.
The Bordeaux Convention of wine-growers has
separated after three sittings. The Journal des
Debats of this day protests, in the name of the
Government, against certain peremptory and selfish
resolutions passed. The Congr~s Vinicole forgot
every other interest in France. A commercial
treaty with the United States was strenuously urged
by one of the speakers. Louis PHILIPPE has not
entered Paris since his return to St. Cloud. The
Belgians nearly outdo him with Queen VICTORIA.

The Comni' Vinicole, which is composed of delegates from
the different wine districts, charged with discussing the means
')f relieving the wine growers from the ruin that threatens
them in high taxation, and a want of markets for their pro-
duce, commenced its sittings at Bordeaux on the 14th, when
an animated debate, but without any result, occurred.
The same body held their second sitting at Bordeaux on
the 15th. After the minutes of the former sitting had been
read and approved of, M. Larrieu, one of the delegates, sub
mitted to the meeting a proposition that the Government
should be earnestly urged to remove those laws which pressed
so exclusively and heavily on the wine growing interests,
and to take such measures as it should deem most advisable
for the prompt abolition of the present system of indirect
'axation on potable liquors; adding that, if the Government
considered the total suppression of the tax impossible, mea-
sures should be taken to make it bear in equal proportion on
all the productions of the soil. Another proposition was
brought before the meeting for abolishing all octroi duties on
wine entering the different towns and cities of France. B. th
these propositions were adopted by the meeting after some
discussion. A resolution was also proposed and adopted
that the electors interested in the success of the wine trade
should refuse their suffrages to any candidate who would not
pledge himself to use his utmost endeavors to effect the reforms
so loudly called for by that branch of national industry.

Marseilles was visited about half past 11 o'clock on the
night of the 15th with a most violent storm. The visitors to
the theatre could not reach their homes until three o'clock in
the morning. A house in the market place was washed down,
but no lives were lost.
The Journal de o'lndre announces that General Bertrand
has made a present to the municipality of his native town,
Chateauroux, of the following articles: The sabre worn by
Napoleon in Egypt; the large decoration of the Legion of
Honor which he wore for a long period; the small decora-
tion of the same order; the cross of the iron crown; a silver
gilt necessaire, which he had with him in his campaigns; a
part of the books which composed his library at St. Helena;
and a copy of the full length portrait of Napoleon in Egypt,
by Gros. These objects have been placed at the Hotel do
Ville of Chateauroux.
The Commerce says: The death of Count de Toreno
gives a deep blow to the politics of the Hotel de Courcelles,
of which he was the soul. M. de Toreno was to have set
out for Madrid the very day he was taken ill. He dined the
preceding day with Qtueen Christina, and all the preceding
days were occupied in conferences with several French states
men. The object of his mission to Spain was to produce a
solution of the crisis in a sense favorable to the party which
calls itself Moderado."

Liberty and Union, now and forever, oue and



We have unfeigned satisfaction in announcing to
our readers that the Whig victory in Georgia is
complete, in every respect. GEORGE W. CRAW-
FORD, late a Whig Representative in Congress, is
elected Governor of the State over MARK A. Coop-
ER, who was also a Representative in the late Con-
gress; Messrs. STEPHENS and CHAPPELL, both
Whigs, are elected to fill the existing vacancies in
the State delegation to the next Congress; and
there will be decisive Whig majorities in both
branches of the State Legislature.
On comparing the votes given for Governor last
week in seventy-three counties with those which were
cast for the same officer in 1841, we find that the
popular vote exhibits a Whig gain in all the coun-
ties but fifteen-the total gains on the Whig side
being 6,188, whilst those of their opponents are but
816; leaving a nett Whig gain of 5,872. This,
even without the further changes which may be
reasonably expected in the twenty counties yet to
be heard from, is upwards of sixteen hundred votes
more than enough to overcome the majority given
to the present Locofoco Governor at the last guber-
natorial election.
So great has been the change already effected in
the political complexion of the State Legislature,
that, from a Locofoco majority of about forty at the
last session, it is confidently anticipated by our
friends in Georgia that at the ensuing session the
Whigs will have a. majority of from forty to fifty.
The event, signal as it seems, shall be our only
note of exultation over our discomfited adversaries.
The Whigs, we doubt not, will maintain their pre-
sent ascendency by wise and moderate counsels.
Such can scarcely fail to confirm their present su-
periority, and the abuse of that superiority to forfeit
them a State which is clearly Whig in all its
The Augusta Chronicle of Saturday announces
the result in the following glowing terms :
As we anticipated a few days since, we have now the
unalloyed pleasure of announcing a most glorious triumph of
the Whigs of Georgia. They have routed Locofocoism
throughout the length and breadth of the State. From
the seaboard to the mountains the returns proclaim the tri
umph of the Whig cause-the election of a Whig Governor,
two Whig meiibers of Congress, and majorities in both
branches of the Legislature, the first Legislature under the
amended constitution, which prescribes biennial sessions. It
is, therefore, a most important victory, and one involving, in
an eminent degree, the highest interests of the State, both
in its local and national relations.
"Gratifying as is this triumph to us, when we regard it for
is influences upon our local affairs, it dwindles into compar-
ative insignificance when associated with our national poli
tics. It is not the mere triumph of a political party in a State,
based upon local questions, but it is the triumph of princi
ples-of Whig principles-of the principles of the great
Whig party of the Union; it is the triumph of a National
Bank and the advocates of a sound currency-a tariff for
revenue over direct taxation and the Locotoco humbug ot
free trade"'-a distribution of the proceeds of the public
lands-and, above all, it is a triumph which proclaims in
terms which admit of no ambiguity that GzoaorA has unfurl-
ed her banner to the breeze with the name of HENRY CLAY
inscribed upon its folds. It is thus that we must contemplate
this great triumph of the Whigs of Georgia, to appreciate its
importance in all its bearings upon the great questions of the
"It is impossible to estimate our majority, tio unrivalled is
the popularity of our cause and our principles, for G,jvernor
and members of Congress. It is certain, however, that we
have elected both by a majority of thousands, and have a
majority in the Legislature of forty to sixty on joint ballot."
The Legislature of this State met at Nashville
on Monday week, all the members being present
except one. JOSIAH M. ANDERSON was elected
Speaker of the Senate, and DANIEL L. BARRINGER
Speaker of the House of Representatives. The
organization of the House not having been com-
pleted on the first day, the message of the Governor
was not sent in till Tuesday, and consequently has
not yet reached us.


SThe Pennsylvanian does us the honor to answer
as follows a late paragraph of ours:
The National Intelligencer islannouncing that the Bank
is a 'republican measure,' and quotes Mr. McDuFrit's speech
of 1830 in support of the correctness of its position. We sus-
pect that our worthy contemporaries of the Intelligencer are
rather in the rearward of public opinion, as derived from ex-
perience, in this once interesting matter. Since 1830 its re-
publican measure' has ignominiously measured its length upon
the earth, having fallen to pieces by its own corruptions. But
what if the Bank, in its creation, were a republican mea-
sure 1' Suppose that every republican in Congress, twenty
or thirty years ago, did vote for it-what then 1 Why, no-
thing but that they did not understand the subject as well as
it is understood now. That which was approved in theory
exploded in practice, and it is not the first time that such a
result has ensued both in politics and in mechanics."
This, the Pennsylvanian will allow us to say, is
rather a sophistical reply : for, in the first place, it
does not and cannot overthrow the absolute, unde-
niable fact that the Bank was, in 1816, voted for by
the Republican party, as both a highly expedient
and entirely constitutional measure. In 1828 the
new or Jackson Republicans set up a violent oppo-
sition to it, as both inexpedient and unconstitutional,
while their leader nevertheless proposed (even in
denouncing it) a greater institution of the same sort.
If, as the Pennsylvanian pleads, experience has
shown the Bank to be a bad measure, then it is only
necessary to say that the opposition to the Bank
cannot justify itself in that way ; for the experience
in question is of 1836, and the opposition was older
by some eight years.
But, further: the experience, the result, could
only, at most, decide the question of expediency.

That of constitutionality it could not touch ; unless,
indeed, the present party doctrine be (as it would
seem) that things are constitutional or not merely
according to the event.
Now, the measure was not adopted in 1816 with-
out a previous trial of twenty years. Four years of
financial confusion had satisfied the Republicans of
that day that a Bank was an indispensable public
agent. It was tried, with great general success, up
to about 1834, when the violent and unprincipled
exertion of the whole power of the Government,
wielded by the despotic will of one who made of the
Constitution and Laws just what he pleased, broke
it down, by compelling it to engage in politics and
fight for its life with the same sort of weapons which
its unscrupulous enemy used to destroy it. Expe-
rience, then-which is really all that the Pennsyl-
vanian alleges-is here every way an inadequate
plea: first, because it applies only to the matter of
o variable expediency; second, beWae all OS t

rience was favorable when the Jackson opposition
began ; third, because the final result is, to say the
least, such that no candid Jackson man even can
well dare affirm that the Bank would have fallen but
for the fatal, the overwhelming means resorted to
for its destruction.
Let the Pennsylvanian, since it has taken utip this
argument, answer us with the clearness, the candor,
and the good humor which it gives us pleasure to
say it so much observes.,
We hope it will, at the same time, explain some
of the difficulties which democratic dialectics offer ;
as, for instance, those presented by the following
sentences in the paragraph we have cited :
"But what if the Bank in its creation were a re-
publican measure?' Suppose that every republi-
can in Congress, twenty or thirty years ago, had
voted for it-what then? Why, nothing but that
they did not understand the subject as well as it is
understood now. That which was approved in
theory exploded in practice ; and it is not the first
time that such a result has ensued both in politics
and in mechanics."
The Pennsylvanian avows, then, in effect, that
the republicanism of the time of MADISON was, as to
the Bank, most Federal : for the Bank-once the
test-question of Republicanism, supported by eve-
ry Republican in Congress"-is now, to the new
Republicans, the very arch-enormity, the unpar-
donable sin" of Federalism. What sort of princi-
ples, and especially constitutional principles, are
those which are white to-day, black as pitch to-
morrow ? It is perfectly obvious that, as to this
great question-" the question," the Richmond En-
quirer cries-the Federalists of 1816 were the true
Republicans; for they opposed the charter. It
stands confessed that one great Republican measure
was highly Federal : why not, then, many others,
nay all ? for, if ever so Republican to-day, they
may, like the bank, the tariff, distribution, internal
improvement, the sub-Treasury, the bankrupt act,
and many more, become to-morrow the very es-
sence of Federalism. These, we need scarcely say
to the Pennsylvanian, are the legitimate, unavoid-
able consequences of its admissions.
It says, in so many words, that the Republican-
ism of twenty or thirty years ago (Mr. MADISON'S
'republicanism) knew little or nothing about great
constitutional questions, even one which had been
debated and tried from the foundation of the Gov-
ernment. General JACKSON was more competent
to settle them, and able, further, to decide the ques-
tion of expediency better, without or against expe-
rience, than the old Republicans with all its lights.
We hope now to learn from our democratic Doc-
tor precisely when the republicanism of the Bank
became (as it now is) abandoned federalism. Did
it go to bed one night the former, and wake up the
next morning the latter? Or did the thing come
about by gradual transition, as the worm is trans-
formed into a fly? How was it? Was there any
middle passed through in going from one of these
extremes to the other ? If so, what was the Re-
publican just at that point where he was neither
that nor a Federalist? The tadpole that was a fish
ripens into a frog; but what was he in that nick of
time when hlie had lost his tail, but had not got his
legs ? Pray, let us have this nice era of party his-
tory and principles fixed exactly, that the world may
know the very minute of the mighty metamorphosis
which evolved Republicanism from Federalism and
Jacksonian knowledge oat of MADISON'S constitu-
tional ignorance.
The Journal of Commerce says that persons who
arrived in the last steamship bring the most favor-
able accounts of the condition of business in Eu-
rope. The increased facilities of communication
and the general progress of civilization are tending
to make the commercial world one great family, and
prosperity or adversity in one part of the globe ope-
rates immediately upon the other portions.

EAST INDIA CoTTON.-The Natchez Free Tra-
der publishes a letter from one of the men who went
to India for the purpose of introducing the cultiva-
tion of cotton. This letter represents the experi-
ment as so far unsuccessful, and expresses the opin-
ion that it can never succeed.

SILK CULTURE CONvENTION.-The great success which
has attended the experiments of enterprising silk-growers in
various sections of our country seems to have awakened a
proper feeling among the friends of this branch of industry.
Experiments have been made which prove beyond all doubt
that it is in the power of the American people not only tc
supply within themselves, and from their own laltor, silken
fabrics ini sufficient quantities to meet the home demand, bul
in due time a great surplus for exportation, without detract-
ing in the least from any other branch of industry.
The American Institute of the city of New York, a State
institution for promoting agriculture and the arts, has, at the
solicitation of a large number of persons engaged in the silk
business in different parts of the Union, invited a general
Convention of silk-growers and manufacturers from all parts
of the United States, to meet in New York on the 123h and
13th instant, during the Sixteenth Annual Fair of the In-
stitute. A conspicuous place will be provided for a full dis
play of American silks on that occasion; and no one ac
quainted with the energy which has ever characterized the
conductors of the exhibitions of this useful institution will
question their ability to procure a magnificent collection.
The great object of the Convention is to obtain information
respecting the progress and condition of the culture and man-
ufacture of silk, and the growth, quality, &r. of the mulber-
ry in the United States.-Baltimore American.

worth $1,400 in this market.--Nes England Farmer.

Busasta OF A CGaoToN WATER PIa'.-Last evening,.
about 11 o'clock, one of the Croton pipes in Canal street burst

with a loud report, throwing stones and earth several feet
into the air, and in a few minutes the street presented the
appearance of a lake. No one understanding how to turn off
the water, it continued to run for half an hour or more, to the
no small damage of the neighboring cellars.-N. Y. Amer.
Mr. Elliott Higgins, aged about sixty years, was killed in
New York on Friday afternoon in a most distressing manner.
He was taking a ride in a barouche drawn by two horses,
when the animals became frightened and dashed off at the
top of their speed, throwing him over the dasher in such a
manner that his body hung for a time suspended with his
head close to the heels of the horses. After being carried
in this manner for some time he fell to the ground, and when
taken up his skull was found to ha badly fractured and one of
his legs crushed. Death ensued in a few minutes.
SAD ACCIDENT.-The New Haven Chronicle states that a
young woman, the wife of ISAAc LOVELAND, of Durham,
Connecticut, was so badly burned a few evenings since by
her clothes taking fire while she was asleep, that she expired
the next day, after enduring the most severe physical and
mental suffering.
RAILROAD CoLLISION.-The passenger cars and a freight
train met on the Michigan Central railroad, near Ann Arbor,
on Saturday week. Most fortunately no injury was done to
the passengers, who were about one hundred in number, nor
to any person belonging to either train. As soon as the
trains came in sight of each other, the engineers reversed
their engines with considerable effect, and then leaped from
them before the locomotives came together{ The injury done

The London correspondent of the New York
Commercial Advertiser, under date of the 18th ult.,
gives the annexed somewhat intelligible view of the
generally hard-to-be-understood subject-the do-
mestic affairs of Spain :
The state of affairs in Spain continues to attract much
attention, and the position of the military and provisional
Government becomes every dlay more critical and of more
doubtful stability. The people of that country are recover-
ing from their delusion, and the soldiers, allured from the
side of the Regent ESPARTERao to espouse the cause of his
enemies by promises which are still unfulfilled, begin to re-
pent, their hasty desertion, and at heart are unfriendly to the
existing order of things.
Prim, (ci devant Cond6 de Reuss,) formerly the idol of
Barcelona, seems now, by his folly and wickedness, to have
become, in that quarter, the object of universal detestation.
Intoxicated with his new honors and his triumphant recep-
tion at Madrid, he is transformed into a fop, and has become
insufferably proud and overbearing in manner. To cure the
spirit of disaffection in Barcelona, he has administered a few
rounds of artillery, and in this course of proceeding has trun-
dled thr e twenty four pound shot through the drawing-room
of the British Consul.
In various parts of Catalonia the National Guards have
refused to march to the assistance of Prim, anti a few days
since four battalions marched from Lerida to join the Bar-
celona insurgents; the garrison of Figueras has arisen in
favor of the Central Junta ;" the same banner has been
raised by Girona; and even Saragossa (so lately honored by
the new Government) has joined the cause. Letters from
Madrid openly assert that the more respectable class of citi-
zens in that metropolis, as well the middle class, the capital-
ists, and bankers, as the retail shopkeepers, are all opposed
to the present Government, and that the wealthy are ready to
pay for an insurrection to overthrow it. The immense band
of placemen and officers of every grade, displaced by the
new provisional Government, would embrace any' means of
overthrowing it. Queen Christina herself has been ill-
treated by her agents, and the appointment of Olozaga about
the person of her daughter has greatly incensed the worthy
ex Q.een Regent. The whole arrangements of the new
Government are known to beia series of disappointments to
her expectations and her intrigues, so that she may also be
Included among the bitter enemies of these revolutionizers,
who have so patriotically been influenced by ambition and
gold to bring about the overthrow of Esparlero, and intro
duce Ihe reign of terror into Spain. Truly they who have
thus sown the wind seem not unlikely to reap the whirlwind
Among the latest items of intelligence from Madrid I
observe that the young Queen and her sister were to assist
on the 9ih at a literary meeting in the Lyceum, for the pur-
pose of crowning the author of the best poem on the defence
of Seville. But her Majesty was suddenly taken ill after
breakfast, (a circumstance by no means remarkable, I think,)
and could not attend. The affection of the Queen was said
to be indigestion: one might venture to add the supposition
that violent nausea was a prominent symptom."

This estate is situated about two and a half miles from the Cen-
tre Market, northwest of the Columbian College, adjoining the
lands of Dr. Worttington and Messrs. Holmead and Pearce. It
contains 300 acres, from 80 to one hundred in cultivation, chiefly
set in timothy, orchard-grass, and clover, atnd nearly 200 acres
wood, considerable portions of which are heavily timbered. The
uncleared lands are of excellent quality, and the cultivated por-
tionsm have been found to be kind and easily improved, lime,
ashes, and plaster having been abunmlantly applied by my father,
the recent owner, with the finest effect. By a recent survey
these lands have been divided into the following portions:
Lot 1, containing about 128 acres, with the improvements, con-
sisting of a dwelling-house, barn, stable, manager's house, negro
quarters, and other out-buildings, all erected within the last two
years. The dwelling is in the cottage style, having piazaas on
three sides, forming a square of fifty feet. It has six rooms on
the principal floor, a stone basement, and comfortable attics.
The situation is elevated and commands a fine prospect. There
are young and extensive orchards, comprising the choicest varie-
ties of fruit.
Lot 2, containing about fifty acres. Upon this portion there is
a beautiful building site and excellent stone quarries. It is bound-
ed on the south by the county road leading to Pearce's Mill. The
soil is good, and admirably adapted to the purpose of market
To each of these Lots there is an abundance of wood.
Lot 3, containing thirty seven acres two roods and thirty-five
perches, chiefly in wood. ,
SLot 4, containing thirty four acres three roods and twenty-
! three perches, also in wood.
Lot 6, containing thirty-four acres three roods 'and sixteen
perches, heavily timbered and rich.
Upon each of these Lots there are good building sites, over-
looking the Washington and Rockville Turnpike. The water is
excellent, and a stream runs through the whole tract. From
their proximity to the city, and the perfect healthiness of the
region, these lands are deemed ta be desirable.
The title is perfect.
Mr. King, the manager, will show the boundaries, and for
price and other particulars, apply to nme, at Georgetown, D. C.
I am only induced to dispose of this property from a desire to
locate myself in one.of the States, with a view to the practice of
my profession.

sell by auction, on Tuesday, 14th November, unless previously
disposed of, a fine property, consisting of 12,700 acres, situate in
Maryland, United States, which, from its agricultural resources,
favorable situation, and vast capabilities of improvement, is momt
deserving the attention of those who with moderate fortunes are
desirous of retirement and independence with thie profitable em-
Sployment of capital. The estate is situate fifteen miles west of
Hancock and twenty two miles east of Cumberland, and distant
only seventeen days' journey from England. It is bounded on the
south by the Ohio Canal, the Baltimore and Ohio Railway, aind
thie river Potomac, and on the north by the great Western Turn-
pike road from Baltimore and Washington to the Western States
Thie climate is remarkably salubrious and agreeable, and adapted
to European constitutions. Thie soil is fertile and produces ex-
cellent wheat, beans, barley, clover, and all other produce and
fruits of Britain, with the addition of maize, tobacco, grapes, and
the produce of the South. There is a very comfortable cottage
residence now occupied by the family of the proprietor, situated
in the midst of 200 across of cleared and cultivated land; also, a
powerful steam mill, with stones and pit saws; sheds, stores,
stables, and workmen's I.e li.i,," The post office is only two
andl a half miles off, and two madl and four other coaches pass

and most valuable description of timber. The mineral resources
are remarkably rich. Iron is abundant and coal is found in sev-
eral situations. There are also sulphur springs, which are con-
sidered of importance. In order to give confidence and to enable
the party to satisfy himself of the eligibility of his purchase,

tions of sale that the purchaser shall have rshe power to annul the
sale within three months, and without assigning any cause.

E-DDEcN IELANJD FOR SALE, si'natedi in the Poto
mac river, about twenty-five miles above Washington and
Georgetown, in the county of Montgomery, Maryland.
This beautiful tract contains about 360 acres uf cleared land,
and has long been celebrated as one of thie most fertile and pro-
ductive islands of the upper Potomac. The soil is of fine allu-
vial quality, perfectly inexhaustible, and capable in its present
condition of yielding ten barrels of corn per acre through its
whole extent. Its adaptation to the growth of tobacco, wheat, and
hemp is not less remarkable. The land is now in good order,
having been cultivated on the alternating system, and would yield
at once a rich return to the hand of the industrious agriculturist.
The healthiness of the situation has been thoroughly tested by a
residence of several years. Every convenience for immediate
occupation would be found on the premises, consisting of a com-
modious and moderately sized brick dwelling house, ice-house,
pump of excellent water, barn, stables, and quarters, most ot
them new and all in good condition. A large and thrifty orchard
of peach trees yields truit plentifully. Fuel in endless abundance
is supplied by the maj,.stic growth of trees which skirt the whole
island, at once giving beauty to the scenery and stability to the
shores. Thie latter have been found, in fact, rapidly to extend
from the deposits of earth left by the waters. It may be added
that the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, being almost at the door,
affords ready access to the markets of the District, by water,
throughout nearly the entire year.
The terms may be made known on application to Mrs. MARY

IMPROVEMENT in whatever regards the happiness and
welfare of our race is constantly on the march to perfection,
aBd with each succeeding day some new problem is solved or
some profound secretrevealed, having an importantand direct bear-
ing over man's highest destinies. If we take a retrospective view
over the past twenty years, how is the mind struck with wonder
What rapid strides has science made in every department of civil-
ized life, particularly in that which relates to the knowledge of the
human system in health and disease How valuable and indis-
pensablenre the curative means recently discovered through the
agency of chemistry How does the imagination kiadla and our
admiration glow at the ingenuity, the near approach to the stand-
ard of perfection of the present time I Through the elaborate
investigations of Physiology, or the science of life, and the pa-
thology of prevalent diseases, much valuable practical knowledge
has ben gained. In consequence of becoming acquainted with
the organization, the elements of the various tissues and struc-
tures of the system, remedies have been sought after and discov-
ered exactly adapted to combine with, neutralize, and expel mor-
bific matter, the cause of disease, and substitute healthy action in
its place. The beautiful simplicity of this mode of treatment is
not only suggested by the pathology of diseases, not only grateful
to the sufferer, but perfectly in consonance with the operations of
nature, and satisfactory to the views and reasoning of every in-
telligent reflecting mind. It is thus that Sands's Sarsaparilla, a
scientific combination of essential principles of the most valuable
vegetable substances, operates upon the system. The Sarsapa-
rilla is combined with the most effectual aids, the most salutary
productions, the most potent samples of the vegetable kingdom;
and its unprecedented success in the restoration to health of
those who had long pined under the most distressing chronic
maladies, has given it an exalted character, furnishing as it does
evidence of its own intrinsic value, and recommending it to the
afflicted in terms the afflicted only can know. It has long been
a most important desideratum in the practice of medicine to obtain
a remedy similar to this-one that would act on the liver, sto-
mach, and bowels with all the precision and potency of mineral
preparations, yet without any of their deleterious effects upon the
vital powers of the system.

The attention of the reader is respectfully called to the follow-
ing certificates. However great achievements have heretofore
been made by the use of this invaluable medicine, yet daily ex-
perience shows results still more remarkable. The proprietors heme
avail themselves of the opportunity of saying it ia a source of
constant satisfaction that they are made the means of relieving
such an amount of suffering.
NsWARK, N J.DBoBMoEst 13, 1842.
Messrs. Sands: Gentlemen : Words cannot express the
gratitude I feel for your treatment to me, a stranger, suffering
under one of the mopt loathsome diseases that nature is capable of
bearing. The disease with which 1 was afflicted commenced with
inflammation of the eyes, in the year 1836, which caused almost
total blindness. For this I was treated and finally relieved, but
the remedies were such as to cause the development of a scrofu-
lous affection on my ftft arm near the elbow.
The pain extended from the shoulder to the end of my fingers,
and for two years my sufferings were beyond description. I tried
various remedies and consulted different physicians in New York,
and amongst them the late Doctor Bushe, who told me the disease
of the arm was caused by the large quantity of mercury taken to
cure the inflammation of my eyes.
My sFrfer,.ns continued, the arm enlarged, tumors formed in
different places, and in a few months discharged, making ten
running ulcers at one time; some above and some below the
elbow, and the discharge was so offensive that no person could
bear to be in the room where I was. I then applied to another
distinguished physician, who told me amputation of thie arm was
the only thing that could save my life, as it was impossible to
cure so dreadful a disease ; but, as I was unwilling to consent to
it, he recommended me to use Swaim's Panacea freely, which I
did without deriving but little benefit. For three years I was
unable to raise my hand to my head or comb my hair; and the
scrofula now made its appearance on my head, destroying the
bone in different places, causing extensive ulcerations, and I fear-
ed it might reach and destroy the brain ; the head swelled very
much, accompanied with violent pain : numerous external reme-
dies were recommended, but they did no good. About a year
since 1 was taken severely ill with a swelling of the body from
head to foot, so that I was entirely helpless. The doctor advised
me to go ta the hospital, for he did not understand my case. For
the last few months I had been afflicted with a severe pain in
both sides, at times so hard I could scarcely get my breath. A
hacking cough constantly annoyed me, and this, combined with
other maladies, rendered me troily miserable. Such, gentlemen,
had been my situation for seven years of moy life, when I com-
menced the use of your Sarsaparilla ; but as my case was con-
sidered hopeless, and the near prospect of a speedy dissolution
seemed inevitable, 1 felt but little encouragement to persevere.
The persuasion of friends induced me to try your medicine,
which in a few days produced a great change in my system gen-
erally by causing an appetite, relieving the pains, and giving me
strength. As success inspires confidence, 1 was encouraged to
persevere. My pains grew easier, my strength returned, food
relished, the elders healed, new flesh formed, and I once more
felt within me that I might get well. I have now used the Sar-
saparilla about two months and am like a different being, The
arm that was to be amputated has entirely healed-a thing that
seemed impossible. I can scarcely believe the evidence of my
own eyes, but such is the fact; and it is now as useful as at any
period of my life, and my general health is better than it has
been for years past.
Health I what magic in the word, how many thousands have
sought it in foreign lands and sunny climes, and have sought in
vain I Yet it came to me when I had given up to die; and as I
feel the pulsations of health coursing through my veins, my whole
heart and soul go forth in fervent gratitude to the Author of all
our sure mercies that he has been graciously pleased to bless the
means made use of. Truly have you proved yourself the good
Samaritan to the afflicted ; for next to my Creator my life is in-
debted to you, or rather the use of your invaluable Sarsaparilla.
The value of such a medicine ia countless beyond price-money
cannot pay for it. I have been raised from death, I may say, for
my friends and myself thought it impossible 1 could recover.
And now, gentlemen, suffer me to add another proof, certified,
too, by my friends and guardians, as a just acknowledgment of
the virtues df your health-restoring Sarsaparilla. That the af
flirted may also use it, and enjoy the benefits it alone can confer,
is the heartfelt, fervent wish of their and your friend,

Read the following from Mrs. William Phillips, who has long
resided at the Falls. The facts are well known to all the old re-
sidents in that part of the city :
Messrs A. B. Sands & Co.: Sirs : Most gratefully do I em-
brace this opportunity for stating to you the great relief I obtained
from the use of your Sarsaparilla. 1 shall also be happy, through
you, to publish to all who are afflicted, as I lately was, the account
of my unexpected, and even for a long while despaired of, cure.
Mine is a painful story; and trying and sickening as is the narra-
tive of it, for the sake of many who may be so surely relieved, 1
will briefly yet accurately state it.
Nineteen years ago last April a fit of sickness left me with an
erysipelas eruption. Dropsical collections immediately took place
over the entire surface of my body, causing such an enlargement
that it was necess, ry to add a ha-f yard to the size of my dresses
around the waist. Next followed upon my limbs ulcers, painful
beyond description. For years, both in summer and winter, the
only mitigation of my suffering was found in pouring upon those
parts cold water. F.-om my limbs the pain extended over my
whole body. There was literally for me no rest by day or by
night. Upon lying down these pains would shoot through my sys-
tem and compel me to arise, and for hours together walk the
house, so that I was almost entirely deprived of sleep. During
this time the erysipelas continued active and the ulcers enlarged,
and so deeply Imave these eaten, that for two and a half years they
have been subject tbleetding. During these almost twenty years
I have consulted many physicians. These have called my his-
ease-as it was attended with an obstinate cough, and a steady
and active pain in my side-a dropsical consumption t and though
they have been skilful practitioners, they were not able to afford
my case only partial relief. I had many other difficulties, too
complicated to describe. I have also used many of the medicines
that have been recommended as infallible cures for this disease,
yet these all failed, and I was most emphatically growing wore.
In this critical condition, given up by friends, and expecting for
myself relief only in death, I was, hy the timely interposition of
a kind Providence, furnished with your to me invaluable Sarsa-
parlla. A single bottle gave me an assurance of health, which
for twenty years Ihad not once felt. Upon taking the second
bottle my enlargement diminished, and in twelve days from the
8th of October, when I commenced taking your Sarsaparilla, I

was able to enjoy sleep undressed by night as refreshing as any
I ever enjoyed when in perfect health. Besides, I was in this
short time relieved from all those excruciating and unaileviated
pains that bad afflicted my days, as well as robbed me of my
nights' repose. The ulcers upon my limbs are healed, the ery-
sipelascuredi and my size reduced nearly to my former measure.
Thus much do I feel it a piivilepe to testify to the efficacy of
yourhealLh-restLrmng Sura.Farilals. A thousand thanks, sirs, from

SALE.-The subscriber would, at any time within the
next twelve months, sell the estate on which he resides, called
Gaymnont, and, conjunctively, about forty five valuable negroes,
with the growing crops, stocks, and utensils, household furniture,
and appurtenances of every kind. It comprises 2,200 acres;
about one moiety of which is arable, and the improvement exhi-
bited by a considerable proportion of which strikingly demon-
strates its capacity for a very high degree of fert-lity from the
use of marl, which abounds in various convenient points. The
balance is in timber and pasture. The buildings of every descrip-
tion are sufficiently large and commodious, the site beautiful, and
the neighborhood scarcely surpassed in Virginia ; and, although
not exempt from that class of diseases usually incident to tide-
water, this objection loese much of its force in the consideration
that they are brief in their duration, mild in their character, and
that a refuge, convenient and of a security which the experience
of many years has proved to be almost absolute, is afforded in the
viainityof the Rappahannock Academyor the townof Port Royal,
between which it is equi distant two and a half miles. The only
condition required of the purchaser will be security for the punc-
tual payment of the interest upon such amount as he may choose
to leave unpaid. Possession given when desired, and the premi-
ses and terms shown, in my absence, by my manager Mr. Jeter,
or my neighbors, Philip Lightfoot or John Taylor,- Esqrs.

P. S. Admonished that the above is not sufficiently taking to
invite that inspection to which he would rather refer such details
as are sometimes set forth with much pomp; and with a view to
give to the objection stated only its due prominence, the following
is subjoined. In a period of nearly thirty years no single instance
is recollected of disease at all referable to climate, terminating
fatally either in the family of the subscriber or those of his mana-
gers; neither amongst the negroes, with the exception of a few
children and two house servants (recently purchased) some twenty
years ago. A house in the town of Port Royal (to which the estate
is adjacent) beautifully situated on the river, long the residence
of different members of his family, whose health has at no time sus-
tained the slightest interruption, would be included with the above.
Few establishments in this county combine more of comfort and
embellishment, or more varied attractions, and such as would only
be relinquished for paramount considerations.

LNIFTY DOLLARS REWARD.- Ran away frum the
subscriber, living near the Alexandria Ferry, on the night
of the 8th of August, negro man HENSON ; he is twenty-four or
twenty five years of age, about five feet 6 or 7 inches high, welt
made, bright yellow, with a full suit of hair; has rather a down
look when spoken to; no flesh marks recollected. I brought him
from the neighborhood of Upper Marlborough from Mr. Miaien
T. Lamar's, where he was raised, the 1st of Jausary lest; te has
some relations in that neighborhood ; hi father is living in Anne
Arundel county, on the farm of Mr. Walter Smith. I am inclined
to think he is still lurking in the neighborhood of Mr. Lamar's, or
should he have tried to get to a free State and caught there and
brought home to me or secured so that I get him again, I will give
the above reward of fifty dollars ; or, if taken in the District of
Columbia or any of the adjoining counties, 1 will give twenty-five
dollars: in either nasa-he must be secured so that I get him, or
brought home to me. RICHARD I. BOWLING.

September 4, 1843. J. McGUIRE.
We the undersigned purchased coal from Mr. John Pettibone,
and would recommend it to all who may want a superior article
of Anthracite coal for grate or stove use.

"BUTLER COAL."-This Coal is mined near Wilkesbgrre,
Pnnnsylvania, by Messrs. John L. Butler & 0o., and, as it is but
little known in this city, it has been thought advisable to procure
a few certificates from those who have used it during the past
year, for the purpose of satisfying those who are unacquainted
with its qualities. It is therefore with this view that the following
certificates are annexed :
Richmond, Va. October 21, 1842.
This certifies that I have tested at the Foundry of the Tredegar
Iron company of this city, the Anthracite coal delivered, by
Messrs. D. V. Burr & Co. (as Butler Coal) and find it of excellent
quality; and that 2, 100 pounds (two thousand one hundred pounds)
of it melted in our cupola 8,000 pounds (eight thousand poumde)
of soft castings, and that as far as I am able to judge it is fully
equal to the coal received by thIe company from the Lehigh com-
pany near Philadelphia. C. CAMPBELL, Manager.
i Test, JOuN F. TANNER.

Richmond, October 21, 1842.
We have tested the above mentioned coal in our furnace, andl

many qualities heretofore used.

strong and soft metal, equal to the best Codorus.

do pronounce it equal if not superior to any coal that I have ever
burned. WM. B. DANIELS,

This is to certify that I have used the Butler Coal the past
