Immediately after the Senate was called to order-
Mr. FOOT, of Vermont, rose and addressed the Senate
as follows :
Mr. President, I rise to perform a melancholy duty this
morning in formally announcing to the Senate the sad in-
telligence of the decease of one of the elder members or
this body. My colleague, the Hon. WM. UPHa M, expired
at his lodgings in this city at about the hour of two o'clock
on yesterday evening, after a distressing iMunes of some
ten days, at the age of sixty years. This is the first in-
stance thaLt a Senator from Vermont has deceased during
his official term.
Mr. UaPM was a native of the town of Leicester, in
the Commonwealth of Mda euisbetts, whence he removed
at an early age to the State of Vermont. He aetUid and
commenced the practice of the profession of Ilw at Munt-
pelier, the capital of tim State, which has been the place
af his residence and t6w homt of bis family to the present
time. An extensive and saecesgful, business at the bar
of his own and the adjoining counties soon rewarded hif
professional labors. By bis ability, hip energy, and b&
persevering devotion to the profession of his choice and
his pride, bhe trained an enviable distinction upon a (o-
rum which counted upon the UAt of its champions the
names of a Prentiss, a Chase, a Mattocks, and others of
high eminence as advocates and jurists. In addition to
carefull and laborious research, he was accustomed in a
remarkable degree to bring the utmost energies of hii
mind ari- the enthusiasm of hi spirit to the cause of hs
client. His legal counsels and aid were especially ought
by thnse upon whom the hand of adversity and want had
fallen, and with equal readiness and zeal he espoused the
cause of the friendless and penniless suitor as of him who
couldI count him down a rich reward. No man who sought
his advice and assistance in a just cause was ever turned
aside from considerations of hio pecuniary indigence. Hr
adopted hio cause and madle it his own. Hii reward was
in the conaciousness of duly ,lone, of rights vindicated, of
wrongs redressed.
Mr. Ulnim repeatedly repreaented the town of Moat-
pelter in the popular branch orf the S(&tt Legislature.
There he always took a prominent and leading part in the
di-cussions upn the various questions of public or pri-
vate inLerest which were brought to the coniideratiou
of that body. In 1842 Mr. UcnAN was elected by the
Legislature of his adopted State to a seat in the Senate ot'
the United States. In 1848 he received the endorsement
of the approval orf his ce,'nstituency as a faithful public
servant oy a re-election for an additional term of rix
years, scarcely half of which is passed away, when he is
s*ummoned to another, and higher, and more awful tri.
bunal. His impaired state of health for some years past
has restrained him from participating s.) generally and s,)
actively in the diseaCLi,.ns of this body as hia inclination
might otherwise have induced him to do, or his ability
as a public debater might perhaps have demanded ef
him. Nevertheless, his speeches upon several important
and exciting public questions bear the peculiar impress of.
his earnestness, his research, hbi ability, and hi.4 patriotic
devotion to the best inlterests of his country. A striking
illust-ration is furnished of his fidelity to the trust com-
mitted to him, and of hi6 constant and patient attention
to hip public dutieP here, in the fact which I have from
his own mouth, that during the ten years of his service
in this body he has never absented himself from the city
of Washington for a single day while Congress was in
session : and has never failed, when the condition of his
health would permit, of daily occupying his seat in thick.
chamber during the sittings of the Senate. And I may
add that be has often come here when a prudent regard
for his physical condition would have detained him at his
private lodgings.
A]r. Upatm was emphatically the artificer o his own
fortunes. le owed nothuag tu the factitious circum-
stances of wealth or patronage. He rude to his high
position by bit own energies, his own unaided efforts;
thus furnishing another and a beautiful illustration of the
operation of The geMus of our institutions, in that they
open the pathway tA station and honor alike vi all, and
no favorites are recogniseI other than the votaries at the
shrine of justice, of honor, and patriotism.
Daring eke illness of my late colleague, the estimalte
companion ,4 his youth was twmmnced from her dialect
home 1.) attend at his sick bedside. fia laoit and dying
hours were solaced by the presence and by the watchful
and affectionate care of her who had bvcn the solace of
his life, and which none but such a one knows how to be-
sOw. But not care, nor tears, nor affection-not skill,
nor place, nor power could stay the impending blow. It
has fallen suddenly; it has fallen in an unexpected hour;
it has fallen heavily upon all of us ; but, most of all, up-
on an intereOsting, and, till now, cheerful, and hopeful, and
happy domestic circle. What hearts it has crushed, what
ties of fond affection it has severed, what hopes it has
blighted, I cannot, I may not attempt to depict. I may
not drarw asiid the veil which concealsin sacred seclusion
the outpourings of private grief. May He, who has de-
clared that he will 1,e the "widow's God, and a father to
the fatherlees,"Bshow mercyand forget ot kindness in this
time of his severe chastisement.
And, Mr. President, while one and another, and yet
another, of our associates in this council chamber of the
nation is stricken from our midst 1by the hand of death,.
wearo all impressively admonished of the frailty of hu-
man honors and the vanity of human hopes. We are
solemnly admonished to be also ready when the Master
calls. And happy will it be for us if our hopes of accept-
anceshall prove as a sure And steadfast anchor toeoue
eouls in thht dread hour which muit come upon, us all-
when the world and its worthlessness shall recede from
our sinking view.
I now submit the following resolutions:
Resolved, That the members of the Senate, from a sincere
desire io show usury mark of respict ti, th. mem.)ry ,r the

OrLIrtd., That the Secrelary" coumunicate these pr-ceedingi
to the Huuse .,rf Representatitem.
Mr. SEWARD, of New York, rose to second the resolu-
tions, and addressed the Senate as follows:
How true it is Mr. President, that very day we spend
here brings some fresh event to impress upon our winds
the fraternity of the States and compreheneiveness of
the Re phblic. We began the week with. surveying our
interests i the Caribbean sea; we went from thence to
examine the defence of the. youngest member of the
Union on the Pacific coast ; and now at the end We are
caled to make a visit of condolence with the sldest of the
adopted States in her eastern mountain home..
Last summer I stood beside'the grave of Ethan Allen,
on the shore of Lake Gfhamplain. The lightning had de-
stceaded ernd riven the native marble slab which severed
it, as if Nature herself had been willing to mark her ap-
prcciation of the free yet tiirbuleuL character of the
f, under of Vermont and capi'orL of Ticondernga But
the rudeness and turbulence of the earlier age of Ver-
mont base passed away, while her intelligence and love
of freedom, remain, increasing and reie by art and
WiLLiAM UPHAI was of Verm ontI, a consistent exponent
of ber" in.'litutiou.?, the most equal mnstttuttons enjoyed by
man in this country arid in the world,. He was a man of
strong and vigorous judgment, whir h acted always by a pre.
tess of sound mnductive reasoning, and his compeers here
will be a witness that he was equal to tbe varied and vast
responsibilities of the Senatorial trust. He was a plain,
unassuming, un,,stenlatioua man.. He t~ever spoke for dis-
piny, but always f'r conviction. He was an honest and
just than tie had gotten nothing by fraud or guile, and
so he lived without any fear (*f losing whatever of fortune
or petition he had attained No gate was so strong, no
lock so fast and firm, as the watch he kept against the
approach of corruption, or even undue influence or per-
suasion He exacted little for his own State, but, like

The resolutions were then considered by unanimous con-
sent and agreed to.
Whereupon the Senate adjourned.

Mr. SIBLEY asked leave to introduce a bill granting
to the Stated of Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa,
and to the Territory of Minnesota, a portion of the public
lands for the condtruction of a railroad from New Orleans
to the northern boundary of Minnesota.
Mr. LETCHER objected.
The House then proceeded to consider the bill for the
relief of William H Welts and others, heretufore reported
from the Committee of the Whole, when it was read the
third time and passed.
The bill for the relief of Patrick Gars, heretofore re-
ported from the same committee, was next taken up, the
question being on the motion of Mr. COBB that it be laidt
on the table.
On mot~ios4 the ll waspassed over informally.
The bill for the relief of David Mj'erle, herewfore re-
ported from the same committee, wiLh the recommenda-
tion that it do not pads, was then considered.
Mr. BRECKENRIDGE proceeded to address the House
in opposition to the bill ; but, before he concluded his re-

Mr. MINER, of Vermont, then rvse and addreassd lto
the House some remarks eulogistic of the cihracter and
public services of the decease.], and concluded by offering
the customary resolutions efr respect for hi8 memory.
Mr. MEACHAM, ,f Vermont, seconded the resoluti,,..:,
and also delivered a i.,ef but impressive address suitable
to the o.,asioa.
The resolutions were then unanimously agreed to, and
the House adjourned.


We publish below the Annual Report of one of our

It has been ol.,sprved, '.In the beginniing of the year
we must keep the silver key vof hope to unlock the door
of the future thqt it may cl,.,se on the golden hinges of
Irrtperity." We, the Managers ,f the Washington (ity
Protestant Orphan Asylum, in pre-ienling our annual re-
port, desire with grateful hearts tu ackn,,wledg" the hand
uf God in permitting us to engage in a work in which we
may look to Him for a blessing. A 4weet hope in His
promises has olwaya auetamned us in our darkest hours,
and enabled us to close each year, if not OD the golden
hinges of prosperity," in a irm trust and belief thnt what
is really wanting -- the Lord will provide." Such is the
testimony we bear to the past, and such our confidenLe
in the future.
We come to unfold no new tale, no recent theory o1
what may or may nut bring joy an. gladness to the soria
r,,wing heart; no fictitious story or the ills of life; vo,
we bring facts, as they are truths, Lhat will bear investi-
gation. We bring an appeal that speaks volumes ; it is
the appeal of the orphan and destitute child. Motheqs,
fathers, guardians, you can realize it.
The litIle one, born for immortality, ushered on the
stage of life to fill its part for weal or woe, pleads its
.)wn cause. Your little ones have a home : how sweet a
6sund t,) every heart, whether to the wanderer on the
wurld'.4 wide maze, or to tht p,,ur, afflicted, disconsolate
being whooe hearth ia u r. warmed b) a lfew ember,, the
gift of charity, and whose bed is A bed of straw.' It is
not for such we plead, however hard their lot; but itla
for the houseless, homeless, cast here and east there,
brought to us ofttimes by those who have given Them a
temporary shelter, but have no means to provide for
Mothers, they have none; fathers, they have none; or,
if they have a mother, who canpaint the anguish of that
heart that dire necessity compels to give up her child ?
The lion may rout, and the wolf may howl, and danger
and death attend unguarded approach to their dens; but,
mark the iu'linct Of nature. with whet care they watch
over their yoIug. F/rom the wild beat of the forest to
the gentle bird who builds her nest and sweetly guards
her little ones, provides them fi.'odi, and teaches them to
fly, all, all teach us a lesson. It' we, who have immortal
souls, need a lesson from the beast, the fowl, the bird,
who fill up their allotted space and perish, shall we be in-
sensible who are fed and clothed from our master's store-
house to the calls of humanity; shall we turn aside re-
gardle"p of the sorrows of those who have been left to us
as a legacy Heaven forbid. "The poor ye have always
with you," and 'tis for such we plead.
It must be from want of reflection ; it cannot be from
want of feeling, tiat so many refuse, or rather do not add
their names to our very limited subscription list; many
who have all that wealth can give or luxury ask, who
w,:.uld n,,t feel the mite we ask for more than the crumb
that falls frum their table : and yet it is not given.
From year to year we bring our humble petition; it is
kindly placed fur us on the printed page, -mt how little
heeded ; beside it perhaps are. thea schemes of the poli-
tician, the rise and fall of empires, the amusements of
the day, all ahsorbing; but how few comparatively east
a glance to inquire whether the orphan has a protoutoror
the fatherless has a home.
But, happily, in this world of "sunshine and shade"
there is a bright as well as a dark side to almost every
picture ; and we should be ungrateful indeed to our bene-
factors, to. those of this community who have hitherto
supported these orphan children, did we not acknowledge
their kindness. We have had many handsome donations,
as will be seen; kind and benevolent hearts have minis-
tered to our wants; from their bounty this institution
i has been supported, and Heaven will bless them for it.
The general health of the children has beenmremarka-
bly good. Of course where there are so many there will
be occasional sickness. To Dr. Hall and Dr. Palmer we
are indebted for their kindness whenever their services
have been required ; to Dr. Pattersou also for medicines
kindly furnished. ,
While the shafts of the destroyer have spared our little
ones, they have cut down from our midst a faithful, de-
voted, and no doubt prayerfut friend, our secondl direct-
ress. Mrs. Obatdiaih Brown haai finished; the work ap-
poiated her, and we trust and :r,.lieve sleeprs in Jetus.'"
Mrs. H~enderson has accepted the appointment of second
Some improvements have been mlade to the grounds.
Two ]ot-i belonging to and adjoining the Asylum, have
been enclosed by the Trutstees, giving more space for ex-
ercise, which is all-important.
Mr. W. J. S'oue kindly attended to some repairs, em-
ploying persons at his. own expense. Dr. Palmer and
several other gentlemen have had a cmokehiouse built for
us ; and Mr. Corcoran, President of the Board of Trus-
tees, has given valuable donations, besides kindly promis-
ing us a woodhonse, and some necessary repairs to the
building. '
We have fifty-three children, thirty-three girls and
twenty boys ;seventeen children have been received, and
five placed in situations which we think advantageous.
We have a matron, a teaoiher,' a domestic employed for
cooking and was'ng, an assistant in the i'amily, whose

The police ofiecra have twice searched the boces before

of a great amount --,f gold and silver, rated at m,,re than
twentN thousand dollars, at a cond examination, only
a few hundred dollars were to he sson. The pjli.e found
the Gipsies well supplied with fire-arms. All the efforts

man : nor have any traces of the stolen mcney been yet

possible t... divine so mild a cea.non. AS it is, an occa-'

stances. A quite remunerative and respectable house
assembled. The Association, we have no reason to doubt,
will go on to prosperity and healthy and confirmed ex-
istence, and become, in due course, scarcely inferior in
any essential point to the famed Germania band. Mrs.
MULiLE, with her truly rich and dulcet and very pleasing
voice, diversified the evening's entertainment. Mr.
HOLTZMAN has a fine bass voice, but the priest's aria from
Zaubeflote was a questionable selection for such an
Tic NATIONAL THEATIIE.-During the week Mr. CHAS.
BURKE has kept the walls of the Natfoual resounding with
peals of most compulsory laughter at his dry originalities
and imitations. His excellence lies in his great facility
of transferring himself from character to character, how-
ever dissimilar, without commixture of their qualities,
playing in each as if he played that alone. Justly popu-
lar as Mr. Burke now is, we think: he must advance the
more he is seen. He takes his benefit on Tuesday even-
ing, and his friends should give him a bumper. Mrs.
EMMA CORA MOWATT'is announced to appear on Wednes-
day evening, to fulfil a short engagement.

CRIMINAL COURT.-The case of John Long, tried for an
assault with intent to kill Rezin Pumphrey, the particulars
of which we gave in Friday's paper, resulted in a verdict
of guilty of the assault simply, without the intent, &o. He
was sentenced by the judge to two years' imprisonment
in jail.
Edward Mtooney was tried on. Friday and Saturday on a
charge of robbing the madl between Georgetown and
Washington. Mr. CAaMMOTON opened for the defence, fol.
lowed by Mr. BRATCLW~rE on the same side, wh~o in an
energetic appeal for his client occupied over three hours.
The case has not yet been given to the jury.

ELBGAS T 1NVENTION-MAnBLn lnoB.--We,- had the
pleasure to examine lately, at the residence of W. T.
PB.tOE, Esq., Capitol Hill, some very beautiful specimens
of marbled-iron from the manufactory of Messrs. FnBuMD
& MILtEBn, of New York. It appears that this prepara-
tion can be applied to wood as well as iron, and made to
serve for every article of use or ornament. For table-
tops it is decidedly superior to marble, because susceptible
of a far higher polish, is unaffected by acids, and can be
made to imitate any one of the rarest and most costly
marbles of Italy. The elegance as well as comparative
cheapness of this article can scarcely fail to be the means
of introducing it generally into the houses of persons of
refined taste. Those who take an interest in the improve-
ments of the age will be amply repaid by a visit to those
interesting specimens.

TRUE YANKEE NEBRY.-There is a mixture of India
rubber in, the true, live, go-ahead Yankee. Wherever he
falls he is sure to rebound. Here-is an instance in point.
CHAS. Hosmss, formerlyof Brunswick, in Maine, caught
the Calilornia fever, and made up his mind somehow to
win his ,,pile.", But how was he to get where the pile
existed ? He stirred round and found a good friend (Col.
A. J. Stone) to loan him $1,000. Well, he arrived at the
mines early:in 1849, and after working about a year with
pick.axe ko d shovel,' on settling the bills had $1,600 left.
He went to San Francisco, sent his friends $600, and in-
vested the balaneein a shtel. He soon got tired of this, sold
out; and opened a grocery store, in partnership with a
gentleman from Augusta, In this State. The pile was soon
made. For the six monlhi ending about the first of No-'
vember last' their ales amounted to $400,000! A few
months si" Mr. Homiet visited New England, bought
$60,000 worth of goods and planked the cash for them.
He also paidthia friend the borrowed money with interest,
and presentedI him ,a gold watch valued atr $200. The
day before he left San Francisco he was offered $65,000
for his interest in his business, but would not look at it.

GEITLEMBiwN: As it is highly important that the first
step should be the right one in any advance towards im-
provement, and an error in the roy important bill which
I propose to draw public attention on one or two points
of general interest would produce much mischief, allow
me to say a few words on section fourth, which enacta
"that the said Corporation shall have power to create
and, establish police and municipal courts."
With tbooe whb. asked suuh amendment, and the com-
mittee that rep,,rted and the Snathe that has passed it, I
agree that nothing would be better calculated to relieve
the Criminal Court an,] the Grand Jury of the fr~iiloi
and vexatious oases that clog knd embarrass the admi.is-
tration of justice, and to cure the existing tendency to
ruffianism and crime, bit I venture humbly to inquire,
does the Constitution authorise Congress to delegate the
power or privilege ofestatilishing such inferior tribunals,
or must Congress exercise the right and discharge the duly
directly, and not through an agrat ? It is absolutely ez-
pe.ditut that this matter Ehuuld be settled in advance ;for
if tb.:.nn-idme-ntl in thib respect he unconstitutional, Lhen
these muiicipal ,.o.orts can,,th legally exist under such
imperfect legislatiou, and this gtreal public want must re-
main unsatisfied tiiiil Congress can cure the defect, and "
appoint, as in the i.'irouit and Criminal Courti of the Dis-
trict, these inferior trih-imals by 6pec;AJ and direct legis-
lation. Better diib.'ht it be for t'ongress to establish these
municipal oburt, si'ecifically at on00 ,han run the risk of
delay and oonfui,,n h1y try'-lig t. )give to i.ur Corporation
a power which m,,y be itirnnic in themSelves and not.
capable under the C,.ntiluitil..D of delegaOLon.
The first section uf thk third article of the Constitution
reads :
"The judicial power of the United Stlt,3s shall b-h vested
in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior Couru as the
Congress may from time to tioe- 6s1ablnoh. The Judges both
of the Supreme and Inferior C(.,ric, shall hold their office
during good behavior; and shall, at wanted ames, receive for
their services a compensation. whieh Ahall nut be diminiBhed
during their continuance in office."
I do not propose here to express an opinion or to go Lo-
to an argument C,,n the eubjeit. 1 write this to invite the
attention of niemmers of the House 1 before whom the bill
now is) to the question, and to attract, if the question be
deemed worthy of an answer, 'he minds of constitutional
lawyers to its consideration. Better to start the difficulty
now tham to suffer from It when too late. If Congress
have the power to dlelgate. as the bill proposes, judicial
Rower, then all is right, and the sooner it is vested in our
Corporation the better. If Congre.ss cannot so delegate
it, why let them act directly, and establish Municipal and
May,,r'E C-nrs th,-meelves, and define their jurisdiction,
&c. Probably this article may elicit the desired informa-
tion abd secure the right action. B.
JANUARY 156 1868.

Messrs. GALES & SEAATN': Observing in the colaumns
of your paper an article under the head of gas. in which
it is elated that the? price of gas ia Philadelphia io $2,
London' $1, and Washingtou $4, will you be kind
enough to state further that the price in Northern Liber-

Mes;rs. Etiiroia: For several years palt the meohani-
erI sicit;fic world have steadily looked forward fora new
,.;toe tj take the place of selam. It was thought the new
agent would be Electro-Galvaniem, and Congress made a
smnll appropriation to bring forward this new agent; but
suddenly, when least looked for, the new motor springs
into exieteuLce, and Captain EvicssorN explodes steam
boilers without injury to passengers, and brings into ex.
istonce a power cafe, economical, and apparently practi-
cal. He tells uw tait during the period in which he was
perfecting hi MI:.TOR that he found means always at. his
command among the merchants in America. This speaks
volumes in favor of individual enterprise in this country.
The m...,t sanguine can hardly look ih the good resulting
from this discovery; it completely revolutiunhzes the whole
Bteam system-In fact, completely supersedes it. But this
"s not all The great difficulty in applying steam power
to distant voyages, in consebquencc of the very large con-
sumption of co:al, is now completely overcome; breathing
ships can make a voyage from New York to China, India,
or, by the way of Cape Horn, to 3an Francisco, and con-
sume not mrore thau a fourth of th coal used by the Col-
lins line of steamers in crossing the Atlantic. Besidea
this, in cuosequcnce of atmosphere being the motive agent,
another ,,hjec-t is gained-a pruper ventilation in tropical
climates, and, as a consequence, health. Owing to Lhe great,

expense of oceanic na igatir-n by steam, these vessels be-
came little more thr, the me-sEngers ond advance couriers
of sailing- hips. an-i a steamer of .i,00U tons was classed
as a rnerchtntman of not more than eight or nine hundred
tons arr.ying ,'apacity, owing to the space required for
coals and boiler room.
This statement shows that ;learmers for mercantile or
war purposes could never allogetber euperbedesailing ves-
sels. Notso withthe new r,.f. It has overcome all diffi-

culties, paved theway for an increasing commerce, made
practical a new agent f,.r war purposes, and, in fact, given
us an agent at this Lime absolutely wanted to meet the
exigencies of our commercial requirements
The individual intuetor has met with encouragement
only trim the mercsuat princes of this country. Would
it be improper for this c.)untry to reward the inventor for
the discovery ofanew nio.-.','by granting him a donation
of at least-$5l0,0t. This would at once Americanize
the thing, and could not be a bad prectedeut, for who again
in this country will discover a Now Moron ? '

We avail ourselves of the earliest opportunity,
for wNcieh we are indebted to the New York '&Times,"
ofplacing before our readers the copy of an Opin-
ion of the Supreme Court which has been the sub-
ject of high commendation by distinguished states-
men and gownsmen within the last few weeks. The
effect of the judgment of the Court in this particu-
lar case is to declare the illegality and nullity of all
S contracts entered into by citizens of the United
States for money or supplies to be employed in mi-
litary operations by citizens of this country against
the people or territory of any Nation at the time in
amity with the United States.
Every one who reads it will see at once the conse-
quences of this judgment. Nof to speak of its im-
mediate effect upon existing contracts, bonds, and
obligations which have been made, sold, and bought
in the prosecution of enterprises of the character
justly reprobated by this decision, it is easy to fore-
see how extensive will be its influence, in the future,
not only upon the action of individuals, but upon
the habit of thinking of no inconsiderable portion
of our fellow-citizens, in regard to the duty of indi-
viduals to respect and obey the neutral obligations
of their country.

The Hon. WILLIAM R. KING embarked on Sa-
turday afternoon, on board the United States steam-

secretary. The sincerest good wishes of his friends
and the country, and fervent hope that his health
may be restored or materially improved by change
of climate, go with this estimable and veteran pub-
lic servant.

THEux PUBLIC LANDS.-A series of resolutions
were introduced into the Legislature of New York
on Friday on the subject .f the distribution among
the States of the Public Lands. They propose to
instruct the Senators and request the Representa-
tives in Congress from New York to use their exer-
tions to procure the passage by Congress of Mr.
BENNETT'S Land Bill. The "State Register"
thinks that. the importance of some such law cannot
be overrated by the original States, as the public
lands have oome to be looked upon as a fund creat-
ed for the benefit of the younger sisters of the Con-
federation, from which the elder are to be excluded
by the system which has prevailed for two or three
years past, in granting them to the new States for
public improvements.

MOtn.*BEENJAAMiN FITZPATRICK s been- appoint-
ed a Senator in Congress by the Governor of Ala-

CHILI-The Valparaiso Reporter of November
30th has the following paragraph :
"We have to note the appointment by Government of
two young professors an assistants in the Astronomical
Observatory at Santiago. so long under the superintend-
ence or Mr. GILLISS, an officer ot the United States navy.
The application of funds to the advancement of science by
this young Republic is also creditable as well to those
who suggested as to the Government which has carried
it out."
Both Houses of the Vl7rginia Legislature have
adopted a resolution fixing the 25th of February
as the period at which the present session of that
body is to be brought to a close.

We learn that Senator STOCKTON is at present
detained at home by sickness in his family.
Tuomks Mooae.-Appleton & Co. are publishing in
numbers the memoirs, journal, and correspondence of
Thomas Moore, edited.by Lord John Russell.
The biographer has inserted upwards of four hundred
letters, written between 1800 and 1818. In 1804, while
In this country, he writes to his mother, (he was then
twenty-five )
"I travelled all night, between Baltimore and Phila-
delphia, in one of the most rumbling, wretched vehicles.
Oh dear, I am almost tired of thus jogging and struggling
into experience."
Moore spent a week in New York in July, 1804. The
yellow fever broke out just at that time, and he was glad
to hasten away. He says: "The passage up the Hudson
river gave me the most bewildering succession of romantic
objects that I could'have ever conceived."
The two parts already issued bring us to 1817. The
book will be a treat to the lover of literature. Did our
limits permit, we should be glad to make copious extracts.

Judge WILLAM H. CABALL, late President of the Court
of Appeals of Virginia, was connected with the public
service of the State for more than fifty years, filling va-
rious important offices, and discharging the duties of all
of them with zeal, fidelity, and ability. Atan early age
he was a member of the Legislature, and we think before
he was thirty he was elected Governor of the Common-
wealth, being the youngest man who has occupied that
position. At the expiration of his Gubernatorial term he
was elected a Judge of the Supreme Court of Appeals,
which office he held until last year. Some fifteen years
ago he was made President of that Court by his associates.
The eminent ability with which he performed his judicial
functions won for him the appellation of the "Mansfield
of Virginia," the admiration of the bar, and the universal
sateem and confidence of the people of the State. A
purer and better man in all the relations of life never lived
]a the State, and a fairer specimen of the perfect gentle-
are could not be found any where.-Richmond Whig.


We have read with particular gratification the
Address of the Hon. JouN H. CLIrrORD, the new
Governor of the State of Massachusetts, to the Le-
gislature of that State. We invite the attention of
our readers especially to the sound Republican prin-
ciples comprised in the following extracts, from it,
of so much as concerns the relation of the People
and the States to the General Government:
The relations sustained by the Commonwealth to the
Government of the Union, and the action of that Govern,
meant on the people of the several States, must be to us
at all times matters of deep interest. It is our Govern-
ment, in the same sense, and within' its constitutional
sphere of action, entitled to our loyal allegiance in the
same degree as the Government of our own Commonwealth.
It was established, not as a league or compact between
independent States, but as a Government founded upon
the voluntary sutrages of the whole people in adopting
the Constitution of the United'States, and declaring it to
be their supreme law. While, therefore, we may properly
give expression to our views and opinions respecting its
action, and endeavor, through the authorized and consti-
tutional channels, to influence that action in such direc-
tions as we may deem most promotive of the general wel-
fare, I cannot regard it as any part of our duty, either as
legislators or citizens, to exhibit our opinions at such
times, and in such modes, as to produce ne other effect
than discord and ill-will; or to endeavor, under their in-
fluence, to withdraw ourselves from the full perfoanance
ofourconstitudonal obligations. The people of the United
States have a common history and a common destiny;
and there are no adequate compensations to the interests
of the human race that will justify any action of States
or of individuals which tends to impair the strength and
integrity of that Union under which the great cause of
humanity has been so signally advanced and prospered.
By the patriotism of our fathers, and the favor of a good
Providence, there has been established here a great family
of States ; and we, as a people, can no more "calculate
the value" of its Union than we can, as individuals,
calculate the value of the ties which bind us together in
the relations of domestic life.
With respect both to the national legislation and her
duties to her sister States, MASSACHUSETTS early placed
upon record her deliberate convictions; and she has now
no new ground, upon those subjects, for the first time to
occupy. In her response to the celebrated Virginia Reso-
lutions of 1798, sfe declared that, "being convinced that
the Federal Constitution is calculated to promote the
happiness, prosperity, and safety of the people of these
SUnited States, and to maintain that Union of the several
States so essential to the welfare of the whole, and, be-
ing bound by solemn oath to support that Constitution,
the Legislature feel it unnecessary to make any profes-
sions of their attachment to it, or of their firm determi-
nation to support it against every aggression, foreign
or domestic. That they are persuaded that the deci-
sion of all cases arising under the Constitutidh, and the
construction of all laws made in pursuance thereof, are
exclusively vested by the people in the Judicial Courts of
the United States. That thus an amicable and dispas-
sionate remedy is pointed out for any evil which expe-
rience may prove to exist, and the peace and the pros-
perity of the United States may be preserved. And,
finally, that they feel a strong conviction that the seve-
ral United States are connected by a common interest,
which ought to render their Union indissoluble, and that
this State will always co-operate with its confederate
States in rendering that Union productive of mutual
security, freedom, and happiness."
I cannot doubt that, in the sober judgment of the peo-
ple of this Commonwealth, this conviction has been gain-
ing strength with the experience of every passing year
since it was uttered. Not the least among the blessings
which we have enjoyed have been the judicial labors of
that august tribunal, to which our fathers referred, and
to which we must refer, the ultimate determination of all
questions arising out of the national legislation upon
Which differences of opinion may arise amongst us.


The Hen. WILLIAM GzORGz CROSBY, the Whig
candidate at the late popular Elections in the State
of Maine, was on Friday elected Governor of the
State by the Legislature, now in session at Augusta.
No choice having been made by the people, it became
the duty of the House of Representatives to place
before the Senate the names of two candidates, se-
lected from the four who had received the highest
popular vote. The names of Mr. CROSBY and of
Governor HUBBARD, the late incumbent, were se-
lected by the House, and the former was chosen
Governor by the Senate, the vote in that body being
17 to 14.
This result has been caused by divisions amongst
the Democrats, who, notwithstanding they have a ma-
jority'in the House of Representatives, partly filled
the vacancies in the Senate with Whigs, so as to give
the latter a majority in that branch. Some of the
newspapers ascribe these divisions to the Maine
Liquor Law, whilst others attribute it to a different
cause. The Bangor Whig says:
"This result has been brought about by the determined
hostility of the two sections of the Democratic party to
each other, and in the determination of each party to suc-
ceed or to cause the utter defeat of the opposite section.
The sacrificing of Mr. Sewall, the candidate of one sec-
tion of the Democratic party for Speaker, was one move
in this contest, as showing the extent to which it would
be carried unless some new element of cohesion should be
brought in.
"We do not, however, anticipate any thing of this
sort, but that, for the purpose of perfecting the mutuM
revenges, the State will be offered to the Whigs; and, if
so, there can be no good reason why they should not ac-
cept it, and administer the government on right prin-
ciples." __


The Louisville Courier says: "Since the passage
of the bill providing for the extension of the Capi-
tol, the city of Washington has grown with a rapidity un-
exampled in its previous history. And since the actual
commencement of building opei-ations on the new wings
of that beautiful and soon-to-be magnificent structure,
real estate has risen in value in different parts ef the city
from twenty-five to fifty per cent. We were present at a
public sale of open lots in one" of the back streets, a few
week's ago, when property, which eighteen months before
had been sold at twelve and a half cents per square foot,
brought thirty and thirty-one and a quarter cents. *

With its public buildings, its really magnificent public
grounds, and the private wealth that is now concentrat-
ing there, Washington will in a- few years be a splendid
city, worthy in every way of this large and prosperous
nation. Independent of its own intrinsic charms-and it
has not a few-the simple fact that it is the point where
a spice of the Old World is to be seen at all times, and to
which all foreigners and all home travellers go at some
period of the year, gives it attractions which are now
drawing to it persons of wealth who desire to live retired'
lives and yet be where they can at any moment plunge
for a time into the social and the political whirl."

The Baltimore American commends to those who
feel disposed to lay violent hands on the "jewel of
the Antilles" the following fable:
"The monkeys belonging to a certain keeper of wild
animals were usually confined in a line of narrow cages,
each of which had a pan in the centre of its front, which
at regular hours was well filled with food for the tenant;
nevertheless, it was observed that when all the monkeys
were supplied with their messes, scarcely any one of them
ate out of his own pan; each thrust his paws through the
bars and robbed his right or left hand neighbor. Half
that was seized was spilt and lost in the conveyance; and
while one-monkey was so unprofitably engaged in plun-
dering, his own pan ws posed to similar depredation,"

We obtain the following particulars from the
Epora, of Madrid, and translate them for the New
York Express. The Spanish papers generally speak
much in favor of the new Ministry and against the
old. Some even go so far as to claim that the late
Prime Miister, BRAVO MURILLO, would be held
amenable to the laws for offences committed while
in power. Although the -press in Spain still lies
under 'a severe censorship, some interesting facts
will be found below. We will first, however, give
the names of the members of the present Cabinet:
Count of ALcoy, Minister of State, with the Presidency.
Senor NAHEnT, Minister of Grace and Justice.
Senor ArBISTAZABAL, Minister of Treasury.
Gen. LAVA, Minister of War.
Count MIRASOL, Minister of Navy.
Senor LLonREET, Minister of Government.
FRDERICK RONCALI is a military man, formerly in the
guard, and fought in Navarre in favorl of DONNA ISABEL
2d, who symbolized the liberal party. He is rather young,
and began his political career in 1840, when, being in mi-
litary command in Madrid, he took part in the question of
the regency, and with effect, in favor of Espartero as sole
regent. He soon after retired from public life, having
lost the regent's friendship and his position in the army
by attempting to save the life of Gen. Diego Leon; but in
1843 was called out again by the state of the country. At
Carthagena and Alicant he filled the post which procured
him the title of Count of Alcoy; and in 1846 he belonged
to the cabinet of Miraflorez and Isturiz. That cabinet
comprised the most liberal portion of the conservative
party, and was called the Puritanical cabinet. It lasted
only a single month. From the ministry of war he passed
to the governor generalship of Cuba, as successor to Gen.
O'Donnell, and predecessor of Gen. Concha. After. his
return to Spain he went into temporary retirement: and
while a Senator he joined neither the :ibe-ral party nor
that of Gen. Bertran, whose offer of the ministry of war
he twice declined. He is said to have even maintained a
course of perfect freedom on the question of constitution-
al reform.
,Alexander Llorente, the next most important member
of the new cabinet, is represented as a liberal conserva-
tive, and was even a "Puritano" until 1847, and in 1845
actively opposed the reform of the conastituti.:.n of 1837,
took his place in Parliament with the fall of the Salamanca
Ministry, was re-elected in 1850, and inclined to Nar-
vaez in his latter period; next a defender of the economi-
cal measures of Bravo Murillo, in 1851, and said to have
been influential in creating the'cabinet of Martinez de la
Rosa. He rose to public life from the editorial profes-
sion, and is a good writer, scholar, and orator, and strong
expectations are expressed of his adherence to liberal
Senor Vahey greatly resembles Llorente in the history
of his career, as well as in his principles, except that he
was Vice President of the Cortes in 1850.
Gen. Lava left the Ministry of Bravo Murillo before the
plans of reform were made known, and his previous life
was uniformly with the liberal party. Mirasol withdrew
from the War Department in the same Ministry soon after
its formation, from disapprobation of its views, and has
been in retirement ever since. Aristazabal is a man of
business rather than of politics; and his views are spoken
of doubtfully.
On the 10th of December the constitutional monarchy
party asked permission of the Governor of Madrid for an
electoral meeting, in conformity with the royal order of
the 8th, but it was refused. The moderate party then
published a manifesto to the electors, signed by the Duke
of Valencia and many others, which the Governor de-
nounced on the 14th, and the Fiscal asked for the im-
prisonment of all the signers. The progress party, how-
ever, seem not to have been discouraged by these mea-
sures, but signed a manifesto of their own. Two of the
Madrid papers (the Diario and Epoca) have been de-
nounced, and La Nacion and Novedades fined for speak-
ing with severity of the late cabinet of Bravo Murillo.
All the other papers of the capital, however, have com-
mented on the proceedings with much energy.
Count Mirafiorez has published a paper in defence of
the principles of the reform of the constitution; and cir-
culars have been received by the ayuntamientos of the
provinces, inviting them to petition for the reform of the
constitution; but the Ileraldo denies to those bodies any
right to interfere in politics.
The Marquis of Ribera has been appointed Minister to

Gov. FRENCH, of.IHlinois, in his annual message,
sets down the State debt, with the interest due, at
$16,724,177. He estimates that within-five years
the State will be able to meet the entire inter-
est upon the debt as it becomes due, without a resort
to increased taxation.

Mr. BARTLETT, of the Mexican Boundary Com-
mission, arrived at New Orleans oft the llth in-
stant, and departed thence the next day for this city.

The well-known Democratic correspondent of the
New York Journal of Commerce, writing in refer-
ence to the late debate in the Senate on foreign
affairs, says :
In order to comprehend what is going on in Congress,
it must be premised that they consider Cuba as belonging
to the United States by nature and destiny, and that it is
for -them to decide at what time and in what manner the
manifest destiny of Cuba shall be fulfilled.
In regard to Great Britain, it is assumed that her
presence in any form on the 'American continent' is a
violation of our natural and national rights, and subver-
sive of our interests and destructive of our safety; and
General Cass is always ready, whenever the British show
themselves any where near the 'American continent,' to
pop the 'Monroe doctrine' at them."
In regard to the Clayton and Bulwer treaty, the same
correspondent remarks:
If the treaty do not expel the British, the Monroe
doctrine will be stretched back for two centuries in order
to do it. The Belize and the Bay of Islands' are five
hundred miles from any point on the route of the Nicara-
guan canal, and the British settlement there is not incon-
sistent with the security of Amnerican interests in that
'transit; and probably there are not to be found a dozen
individuals in the whole United States, not demagogues
nor fillibusters, who feel the slightest concern about the
British settlement."

The privilege of scolding is prominent among the "pe-
culiar institutions" of every free people, who are sove-
reigns all, and sometimes severe and arbitrary regal
tyrants to boot! We notice in the columns of our usually
agreeable contemporary, the Petersburg Intelligencer,
some remarks in relation to the august Legislature of the
Old Dominion, of a character well adapted to cause that
whole body to tremble in its shoes, and to betake itself to
business with the utmost possible dispatch.
We would just as soon set ourself to work," says the
editor, "to extract blood out of turnips, teeth out of
hens, sunbeams out of cucumbers, or to undertake any other
such interesting impossibility, as to extract a business-
like incident, worthy of public attention, from the pro-
ceedings of our Legislature. Napoleon, we read, after the
battle of Austerlitz, in an address to his troops, told them
that, it would be enough for one of them to say that he was
at the battle of Austerlitz, for all his fellow-citizens to ex-
claim, there is a brave man.' In like manner may the
Virginia press remark of our legislators at present occu-
pying the Capitol, that it will be enough for one of them
to say that he was a member of the General Assembly of
1852-'53, for all the people to exclaim, 'there is genuine
Lycrryu.'" .
As the ancient Lycurgus died by Bis own hand in his

voluntary exile, may we not infer from the spirit of the
editor whom we have quoted that he would recommend
to each modern imitator to emulate his example in this
particular also? It is well for the wise men of Virginia
that they can afford to be rated thus !

Mr. BENJAMIx BENJAMINS, aged 28 years, committed
suicide at his residence in Philadelphia on Friday last by
hanging himself. He is represented to have been a man
of exclent character. He had been married at New
York of the Wednesday preceding, and the newspapers
intimated that the discovery of insanity in his bride,
after her return to his home, probably led him to make
way with himself. Whatever her condition, the result
indicates that he, at least, was laboring under temporary
alienation of mind.
We learn from the Albany papers that the Hudson river
has not remained open to so late a date before in nearly
fifty years. In 1810 it closed on the 19th of January.
Since 1790 it has not closed but ten times in the month
of January, twice on the 8d of February, and the remain-
ing seasons in the months of November and December.
The false rumor that Professor WILSON (Kit North)
was dead originated on this side of the water, from the

We published lately an article briefly describing the
suffering to which the people of Madeira have been re-
duced, and the still greater degree of suffering with which
they are threatened-even to absolute starvation-by the
unprecedented failure of the last year's grape crop-wine
being the alaple product of the island, and on which alone
the population depend for ,ubhitence-all their bread-
stuffs being brought from abroad, and chiefly from the
United States. We add to-day, on this subject, so inte-
resting to our humanity, a letter from CHARLES W. MARCH,
Esq., a well-known American gentleman, at present visit-
ing Madeira. The letter of Mr. March makes a strong
appeal to the sympathy of our country in favor of an hon-
est and simple and Christian people, who have dealt con-
stantly and largely with us for more than half a century
past, and been purchasers and consumers of our produce
to the amount of millions of dollars. We insert the letter
in the hope that it may give rise to some active measures
amongstl us to raise assistance for our suffering fellow-
creatures in a distant land :
You doubtless have heard of the failure of the Grape
this year in Madeira; but you cannot know the extent of
suffering already caused by the failure, nor the fearful
apprehensiojns .uf still greater calamities it naturally ex-
The wine is the staple and almost sole production of the
island. The annual vintage has afforded for many years
past an average of twenty-five to thirty-five thousand
pipes of wines. There has not been produced this year one
hundred pipes of saleable wine on the whole island. It needs
but this statement to afford you a definite idea of the aw-
ful calamity that has fallen upon these people.
None, it is true, thus farhave died of famine; there are
few, however, but have felt its menace or its actual pre-
sence.- The wealthy curtail their expenditures; those of
sufficient means heretofore practice a stringent economy ;
persons of more cramped resources sell day by day what-
ever ornaments they may have of better days, at ruinous
prices, while the poorest class fill the streets and beg.
And this is but the beginning of the days of famine. How
many months of misery, of agony, of starvation, indeed, to
thousands, are yet in reserve, no man can foresee. With-
out aid from abroad, death alone can terminate the suffer-
ings of the population. For, destitute of provisions, des-
titute of the coarsestr means of existence, destitute of all
save their trust in God, what hope can they have in life
but an early death?
They are a mild, patient, laborious, devout people;
kind to each other, careful of and attentive to strangers;
obedient and reverential toward their priests. They re-
spect man and fear God. In a population of upward of
one hundred and thirty thousand souls, I know not where
you will find so much contentment and so little vice.
I enclose you a copy of the appeal put forth at the
instance of the Governor, and signed by the English and
American consuls and other gentlemen of consideration
in this place. It is short and comprehensive, and will, I
doubt not, meet with a full response.
.The Portuguese, it is true, have no influence upon the
election' in the United States; they cannot aid in politi-
cal demonstrations there, nor determine by their num-
bers and union the success of either of the great political
parties of our country. But they are christians, they are
men, they are sufferers, and I know my countrymen too
well not to feel that such an appeal will be signally re-
sponded to.
It is well remembered here, and often repeated, that
when some years since famine in a less fearful form
threatened the neighboring Cape de Verd Islands, the
Americans rushed to their rescue; and from full hands
scattered among the starving population money and pro-
visions, recalling thousands to a grateful existence.
The inhabitants of these islands, with greater claims
to our sympathies, because under greater sufferings, hope
for equal charity. They, besides, are not unmindful that,
for nearly two centuries an intimate social and mercantile
relationship has subsisted between their island and our
country; that the first colonies of North America had
hardly escaped European tyranny and the rage of the
seas before they sent to this island the products of their
labor-staves and corn, and other food-to receive in re.
.turn the product of the vine. Our country, too, is as
well known to the world for its acts of beneficence as for
its deeds in arms, and rescued Ireland blazons its history
no less than conquered Mexico. I hope that our country-
men will not be tired in well doing, but will now come
forward and sustain, in so good a cause, their well-de-
served reputation; that these poor people nay also feel
how great in disinterested kindness is the heart of the
GREAT RaPUnLIc; and then, though the fig-tree has not
blossomed, neither ia their fruit in the vine; though the
labor of the olive has failed, and the fields have yielded no
meat, yet shall they rejoice in the Lord, and in their pray-
ers of thanksgiving invoke blessings upon the American
With the hope that you will publish the enclosed state-
ment, and lend some portion of your great influence in
furtherance of its views, I remain, ever, very respect-

York last week discovered that one of the chimneys was
on fire. She stepped before it in such a way as to con-
ceal the danger, and then quietly dismissed the children
immediately afterwards passing word to the other teachers
in the building, so that all the children, some two thou-
sand, were entirely out of the house before the alarm was
This speaks well for the prudence of the school-mis-
tress; but we think it time that both the women and chil-
dren, in cities, should be taught that there is actually no
immediate danger from the burning of a chimney.
It was stated at the recent meeting of the American
Board of Missions that since 1798 the United States had
paid to the Indians in money $35,274,877.
The Mexican Secretary of the Treasury has ordered the
Consul General of Mexico in New York to inform the
public that the port of Tampico is closed to interior and
exterior trade. In consequence thereof, no papers will
be delivered for vessels clearing for the said port.

The Governor of MIcHIOAN, in his late message, says
the temperance law of last year has not answered the ex-
pectations of its advocates, and is not generally enforced.
A bill has been introduced into the ILLINOIS Legislature
repealing the liquor law of 1851, and allowing county
courts to grant licenses at such rates as they may see fit
to establish.
FINANCES or KENTUCKY.-The report of the Auditor of
Kentucky shows that the finances of that State are in a
highly favorable condition. The revenue proper for the
year ending 10th October, 1852, was $783,885, and the'
expenditure $724,695, leaving a balance of $59,180 in
the treasury. Independent of this, the State Sinking
Fund has received $440,813 from taxes and dividends on
bank stocks.
IMPORTANT DEcisIOer.-The case of Woodward, admin-
istrator of Harper vs. Phoenix Life Insurance Company,
was decided lately at St. Louis by Judge TREAT, of the
Court of Common Pleas, in favor of the defendant. The
facts in the case are represented substantially as follows :
Mr. Harper, a resident of Canton, Lewis county, had
his life insured in the sum of $2,000 in the Phoenix In-
surance Company of this city. He subsequently became
involved in a difficulty at Canton with a Dr. Correll, of
that place. They had an altercation, and the evidence

seemed to prove that in it Harper drew a pistol and snap-
ped it at Correll, who, in his turn, fired the contents of
his own pistol at Harper, causing his death. The Insur-
ance Company refused to pay the policy, on the ground
that the act of Harper on first.drawing the pistol on Cor-
rell was a violation of the provision enjoined upon him
when the policy was issued. The estate sued the Company
for the amount of the insurance, and the decision was
rendered yesterday against the plaintiffs.-St.LouisJntel.
In the United States Commissioners' Court, last week,
Elisha Merwin, Esq. presiding, Loring Bennett and Luther
A. May were examined on a charge of having, on Satur-
day last, wilfully detained the United States mail stage
between Barre and Worcester, by refusing to allow it to
pass them, thereby delaying the arrival of the mail at its
destination about one hour beyond its due time. The de-
fendants were in a vehicle going in the same direction as
the stage, and keeping just ahead of it at a slow pace, in
such a manner as to prevent the stage from passing them,
thus caused the delay. After a full hearing of the case,
the defendants were ordered to give bonds for their ap-
pearance for trial at the next term of the United States
District Court. They gave the bonds required. The law
under which the complaint was made is in these words:
If any person shall knowingly and wilfully obstruct or
retard the passage of the mail, or of any driver or carrier, or
of any horse or carriage carrying the same he shall, upon
conviction, for every such offense pay a file nult eexceeding
one huadrb1 dollars; and if any ferryman shall, by wilful
negligence or refusal to transport the mail across any ferry,
clay the same, he shall forifelt and pay for every ten minutes
,that the same shall be delayed a psunms not exceeding ten


A ill has passed the Legislature of Florida to autho-
rize the raising of two regiments of volunteers for Indian
service. According to the Flor.dani, the bill provides that
the regiments thus raised shall be tendered to the Gov-
ernment, and if refused, the Governor is then to employ
them in removing the savages& It appropriates $500,000,
pledging ten per cent. of the State revenue for the re-
demption of the bonds authorized to be issued to raise this
sum. The Governor is required to keep the tender of the
volunteers open until 4th of May'next, when, if they are
not received, and nothing is being done towards removing
the Indianas in the mean time, the State is to go to work
and do the business herself. This step has been taken in
consequence of the refusal of the Indians to emigrate.
It is believed that they have established a fortified camp
on the eastern edge of the Big Cypress, that lies to the
southward of Fort Myers. It is stated that the western
edge of the everglade, along this hammock, forms a sort
of beach, and that there are islands lying off adjacent in
the everglades that are capable of tillage, and good places
of refuge in case of defeat.
Gov. BROWN sent a message to the Legislature vetoing
the joint resolutions extendiiig his term of office. The
Senate passed the, resolutions over his veto by a vote of
13 yeas to 8 nays, and the House passed them by yeas
21, nays 8. His Excellency's political opponents seem
determined that he shall continue to be Governor for a
few month's longer.
The Legislature has passed a bill authorizing incorpo-
rations for manufacturing purposes; also, a bill provid-
ing that all licenses hereafter to retail spirituous liquors
are to pay a tax of $200, and persons offending are to
be fined $500 on conviction. This tax, it is thought, will
operate to prohibit licenses to a large extent, if not al-

The Winchester Virginian states that within the last
month some three hundred fat sheep have been bought up
in Clarke county by purchasers from Delaware, in addi-
tion to the demand from other quarters. Some have
brought from eight to ten dollars a head. One farmer
sold eighty for upwards of $650. The average sales have
reached six dollars a head.

Sir: Your Pills and Ointment have stood the highest on
our sale list of Proprietary Medicines for some years. A cus-
tomer, to wb.,m I car refer for any in-1uiries. desires me to let
you know the particulars of her case. She had been troubled
for years with a disordered liver and bad digetlion. Ot the
:ht oceasilon. however. ihe virulence uf the attack was i t-
alarm;ng, and lhe inflammation set in ao s severely, that doubts
were entertained of her not being able to bear up under it.
fortunately she was induced t'- try your Pills, andshe informs
me that, after the first and each Fucceeding dhse, she had
great relief. She continued Lto take them, and, although shbe
uerd ,nly v three boxes, she is now in the enjoyment of perfect
health. I cuuld have sent you many more ca'es, but the
above, from the einerij ,.f ith aiot-ick., dhd the spev'y cure, I
think, speaks much in i'favor of your astonishing Pills.

Margaret McConnigan, nineteen years of age, residing at
New Town, had been suffering from a vt-lent rheumati. fever
for upwards of two months, which had entirely deprived her
of the use of her liumb. duringg this period she was under the
care of the most eminent med-cal men in Hotbnari Tr-wn, and
by them her ease -was considered hopeless. A friendpre-
vailed upon her to try H.jll.jwa'y'e celebrated Pills, which she
consented to do, and in ,n incredibly ihurt resnpae of time Ibhey
effected a perfect cure.

desirous that others should be made a..quainic, with their vir-

The common expression of thrise who haae used this ex-
tract is: "I had hear-I your C-rdial highly spoken of, but was
one of the incredulous in regard to ice merit, having triad va-
rious medicines sold for the same purpose (different sarsapa-
rilLis) without denying any benefit. I had almost given up
all hopes if deriving any relief. andlwhen l purchased some of
yeur Cordial I had no faith whatever of it. benefiting me;
but it has; I feel stronger, although I have not taken it
three week?. I am satisfied the halt a dsien bottles I took will
cure me,"
Another says: "I hal et.neulted several distinguished phy-
sicians. Some said I cuuld not oe cured ; others prescribed
this thing and that, but I fund no relief until I procuresi
some of your Cordial. I moa' say it completely oured me."
Anther says "I wa smrprized at ite effect your Cordial

Hear what the celebrated an-i distinguished Dr. Wood, of
MassachuseCts, says of it:
WoacgcTBa, JtINE 1, 1849.
Drac Sin : It gives me pleasure to inform you that one of
my p1itenit, while in Bo)ston. procured some of your Cordial,
whith he tells me he has lakes two weeks, and that he is en-
tirely cured. He already looks like k new person, who so
shnrt a time. sioce Ilooked so [i,,e and thin, and was scarcely
able to crawl around. I tb.,ught it scarcely possible for him
ever tu regain his full strength and fecalties; his case was an

extremely.bad one. I prescribed the usual medicine used In
suth cases in the buhpital, but they were of no effect. In athe
mean lime my patient bad procured aome of your Cordial,
which effected a cure I am satieftied no other medicine could
have done. I shall ever warmly recommend it whenever an
,pporlunily occurs. The inventor, in my younger days, I"
well remember a,: heng uoneidered one uf the most skilful
physicians in the United States, and had,beard hlsCordial
very highly spoken of, but was one of the inereduloas as to
its merit urntal I was so unexpectedly and saUist'actorily con-
vinced to) the contrary.
I remain, very truly, yo.rs,* H. A. WOOD, M.D.

DR. MORSE-Sia Some time since you requested my opin-
ion of the virtues of your lnvigoratlng Cordial. I am now
prepared to give it. I have had It in practice and prescribed
it for the last few months, and mast give it my decided pre-
ference over any thing of the kind with whieh l am acquaint-
ed, both as Lo its medical virtues and reasnaable pWise at
which you sell it. I am much pleased with its effect, and
can with confidence recommend it to the patronage of the pro-
fession as a valuable auxiliary fr removing diseases in tAte
of the most troublesome tinns, and to all sa sa and veisa-
ile medicine. BEN/. WM3KS MN..
