J of Richmond, Kentucky, cures by his mode of
operating on the ear, about four cases out of five
of deafness. He has restored to hearing a number
of individuals after its loss, to a great extent, from
ten to twenty years, and in one instance for near
forty years, and this individual now hears well.
The length of time deafness has existed is not con-
lusive evidences that hearing cannot be re-
From the fact that a great majority of the large
number deprived of the inestimable faculty of
hearing, can be restored by his mode of operating
and treatment, in some instances by a single opera-
tion, and at farthest in a few weeks or months,
he invites all those who are deaf to come and be
restored. Cases from a distance will not be re-
quired to remain longer than a few days.

f rl HE Trustees of Charlotte Hail School take
pleasure in announcing to the public that
they have in, a. 1 the services of Dr. 1'. 3. Pinne.'
in the English and Mathematical De?..titent of
the institution. Dr. Pinneo is a gradit Is of Yale
College, has been many years successful,!:t; ,uip',.*
ed as a public teacher, and most of the I'ru-i,-
have a personal knowledge of his pectt faculty
and skill in imparting information to tii ,iudcnt.
Charlotte Hall School is now mo.e-.. '.e or-
ganized. Dr. Kraister, Dr. Pinner,, :td Mr.
Charles T. Shaw, constitute the Fi.cui;ty. Dr.
Kraister, the principal, is a gentleman of great
learning and erudition, for which the Truslees

Mr. Shaw, the assistant classical teacher, has been
connected with the school for several years; is a
scholar, and possesses industry and energy in
- The classical and mathematical courses are
very fell, and pupil may bh amply prepared for
the Junior class of any C.'.i,,e in Ibis country.
The French language is also taught without addi-
tional charge.
The expenses, consitnting the talent employed
and the comprehensive course of instruction, are
very moderate. Thb price of tuition, with no ex-
tra charges, is seven dollars (7) per quarter for the
classical, mathematical and French classes, and
four dollars and fifty cents, (4 50) for the lower
English. Board may be had in commons under
Ihe charge of a steward of very moral and
exemplary character at twenty-five dollars (25) per
quarter, including bedding and washing, or of the
principal or assistant classical teacher at the same.
There are also private families in the village who
receive boarders.
Charlotte Hall school is located in the small vil-
lage of Charlotte Hall, in St. Marys county, Md.
situated upon an elevated plain, nearly equidistant
between the rivers Patuxent and Potomac, and is
remarkable for its perfect exemption from autum-
nal diseaseit general salubrity, and abundant flow
of the purest water from its numerous fountains.
It is distant from Washington City, over a good
road, thirty-five (35) miles, and the mail stages
from Washington to Leonardlown pass within
eight miles twice a week. The Norfolk and Poto-
mac boats touch within twelve or fifteen miles,
and the Patuxent from Baltimore within ten.
Under such auspices the Trustees with entire

confidence recommend this ancient seminary to
the attention of the public.

exercises of study at this lasiitution will be
resumed on the 16th of Ausuust. Mt. St. Mary's
College is situated in a romnan'ic and beautiful
part of Frederick c unty, Maryland, embosomed
in woods and retired from the distractions and m)
ral dangers of a city. The site is pecul..lly heal
thy, arid is supplied with the purest wa;cr by a
spring cushing from the rock. It is distant filty
miles fomr Baltimore, eighteen from i'i.'derick,
Maryland, twelve from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania,
and two from Emmitsburg, Maryland. Tt' build-
ings are sufficient for the accommodation oif one
hundred and forty boarders. The various Htalis
and rooms are spacious, any and comfortable.
This Institution was raised to the rank and in-
vested with the [ow( s and privileges of a College,
by the General Assembly oif Maryland, in the
month of February, 1830.
The system of education embraces the various
Arts and Sciences usually tauRhtin ('.-il. .,, cin.-
ducted on the most comprehensive plan. A comui-
petent knowledge of the Greek and Latin Lan-
euaeesanit Literature, of Mathematic-, Natural
Pht.r I and Chemistry, Logie, Moral and In-
tellectual Ph '...,Fhs. Geography, Rhetoric, and
History, is, by the statutes of the Colleve, indis.
pensable for graduation; but the course cf studies
includes English Grammar, Arithmetic, Book-keep-
ing, Practical Surveying, the German, la!ian,
French, and Spanish Lan.suases. Nor is there
any extra charge except f r M- 1,.w and Drawing.
Besides a well selected library, for the use ot the
students, there is alsc a i- .l,.- room, in which
the best lterary and .*'.'r.-rr periodicals maybe
consulted, during the time of recess from study.
There is a complete and excellent Philosophical
Apparatu', a Chemical Laboratory and a Minera-
iogical collection.
The Professors and Tutors, nearly thirty in num-
ber, e hlinu- with very few exceptions, in the In-
.mtilution, devote themselves entirety to the duties of
their profession. Constituting but one family with
the students, they exercise, riot only constant su-
pervision-friendly in the highest degree to dlis-
cipline and decorum-but also a moral influence of
the most salutary kind. The S:udents are never
permitted to go beyond the College limits, except
in company with one of them. On the other hand,
ample opportunity is afforded by the retired and
rural situation of the College, for its pupils to en
joy under the care of their teachers, every variety
of innocent and healthful exercise nid recreaicn.
Hence the formation of a robust constitution is
in general a result of some years' residence in this
Institution. The dict is wholesome and abundant.
The si '.: are well attended and nursed. "Sisters
of Charity," from St. Joseph's, near Einm. i t,,.,-
have charge of the Infirmary atid of all ih... .'.-
partmein, on which the health and comfort ot
the Students chiefly depend
While the government of the C' .- i..--- is mild and
paternal, the laws of good order, propriety, and
morality are strictly enforced. The moral influ-
ence of instruction, persuasion, and encourage-
ment is primarily and mainly relied on, and is sel-
dom found ineffectual.
The penalty of dismi' or expulsion is incur-
red by habitual neglect of study, wanton and re-
pealed violation of the established rules, propane
swearing, irrehligious language or writings, the in-
troduction of iufidel or immoral books, and other
similar offences against morality or the laws of
the Colege.
Students who come from other t ie: mut
produce certificates of di-mision in good stand-
When a Student enters the College, he is admit-
ted to hose classes which he is found capable, on
examination, of attending with advantage. The
most eligible time for entering is from the eighth to
the sixteenth -f A .sj ..
Frequent i n.,r,ai ut,- o the different classes
take place during ihe acade-. .cal year; and reports
of the Students' progre$,s us tIe ib-.,-a1..f .
tttndy are lead publicly every Wednesday, in the
presence of all their Professors and Tutors. Once
a year a report is sent to the parents or guardians,
nta'ig ever' thing that may interest them concern-
i.g litheir children or wards.
Tne Commencement is hieIl on the lat Wednis
day of Jine, previous to which the candidates for
literary honors are examined pub.icly; premiums
are then distributed to the meritorious, and degrees
Tho.-e whi receive the denre of "Bachelor of
Arts," are required to write and deliver dtscourses
approved of by the Faculty. To be admitted to
this degree, it is necessary that the candidate
should have gone through at least the last year of
the course in this institution, and have acquitted
himself creditably, so as to give clear evidence of
his worthiness, both at the private and public ex-
Those who have received from the Faculty of

by satisfactory evidence of their moral deportment
and continued devotion to liberal studies.

No uniform is required or worn; but simplicity

As there are many young men of talent and worth d
in differ nt parts of our country, who, frcm restricted
circumstances, are unable to avail themselves ot 1
the benefit of public lectures, the Professors have
resolie- to admit, gratuitously, two such students c
from each of the States, and one from each of ihe
Territories. In order, however, to guard against
individuals whore education and character do not d
quality them to become useful members of the pro- s
session, the selection is placed in the hands of the
Senators and Delegates of Congress, each of
whom has the right to .elect ore sticdent from his f
respective State or Territory, and whose certificate
u{ selection will be a passport to all the lectures, l
by paying only, on entering the school, the usual t
matriculating fee of fire dollars. (
The entire expense, for a course of lectures by
all the Piofessore., is $70. Dissectinig ticket $10;i

In the House of Representatives, July 12th, 1841-
In Committee of the Whole on the state of the
Union, on the bill authorizing a loan of twelve
millions of dollars.
Mr. ATHERTON said:
Mr. Chairman: I certainly concur with the gen-
leman from Georgia [Mr. DAWSON] who has just
addressed the committee, that it is best on all occa-
vi -. to deal openly and candidly wi'h the people,
ana to rtneapt to practise on them no conceal-
nents nor disguises. I believe the people desire
his treatment, and will, at once, be suspicious of
hose wi 9 pursue a contrary course. And to no-
hing are these remarks more strongly applicable,
as it seems to me, than to the various attempts which
have been made here and elsewhere, to charge upon
he late Administration the fact of creating a large
public debt. The people are intelligent as well as
honest, and whe a this accusation is brought for-
ward, they will inquire whether its authors are
tcosistent and uniform in the calculations on
which they base the el-arge. If they find one per-
son ating the debt at one amount, and another at
one quite ',d. ten, they will very reasonably sus-
iect there is some delusion in all the statements,
and tht t none can be safely relied upon. Sir, the
cours.e of the friends of the Administration has
been most extraordinary on this subject. They
seem to have determined upon the conclusion that
he country has been plunged in debt by the late
Administration, but differ altogether in the methods
by which they arrive at this satisfactory result.
The report of the Secretary of the Treasury-that
document which ought to give to the House and
hie country a full and clear and ii. i' li.,r,ir ac-
count of the finances, seems to have led his friends
o variant and contradictory conclusions. From
one part of the report, the inference has been at-
empted, in the public prints, anRd even here,
hu.t this cherished debt is thirty-one millions of
dollars. From reference to another portion of the
same document, the sum has been settled at six-
een millions, while another explorer returns from
hts voyage of financial discovery with the cheering
fact that the debt is only something like twelve
millions. This latter sum is that which it is now
generally conceded the Secretary indicates in his
report as the amount of "debt and deficit,"
(mark, sir, not of debt;) and is that recognised by
he chairman of the Committee of Ways and
Means, who is the authoritative exponent of the
subject on this floor.
One remarkable fact cannot escape our observa-
ion. The Secretary of the Treasury, although he
devotes a portion of his report to "the public debt,"
'oes not condescend to give us information as to
ts amount. Is not this almost incredible? He,
he officer who has the means of giving this infor
nation, and whose duty it is to disclose to us the
true condition of the Treasury, though he enlarges
mauch upon a public debt, does, in no part of his
report, definitely state what that debt is. Can there
be any excuse for this, except that the debt, exact-
y stated, would seem so trifling and incon-idera-
b)c, compared with that created *y the splendid
maginations of his friends, as to be quite unworthy
)f particular notice? I do not assert, for I do noti
know, that the design was to leave the mater still
doubt and mystery, and thu still give play to
hose fertile imaginations, but I say such has b Fn
he effect of this unprecedented course. Nor can
I for a moment believe that, if the amount of the
public debt were as great as any, the least of those
sums so frequently repeated by gentlemen of the
Administration party, the Secretary could have
been so deficient in duty as not to inform Congress
particularly of so important a fact.
T,, mvtie wno w eml nic .at the session tr last
winter, thc i endeavors to inculcate the idea of a
herge debt are nit new. They were then cornm-
meniced, and have ever since been sedulously con-
tiuued. Perhaps it wiuld be going too far to say
of gentlemen, inat their wish was "father to their
thought;" but it certainly is demonstrable from
heir own data, that no ground then existed, or
now exists, for their contradictory and monstrous
results. They stand condemned by each other.
They stand condemned and exposed by the report
of their oan Secretary, which, so tar as it proves
many thing, overthrows and scatters to the winds all
their calculations-calculat.ons which, though
brought forward with all the parade of maihema-
tical accuracy, are figurative in more senses than
ome. Nine who were here can forget the exhibit
made last winter by the gentleman from New
Yoik, [Mr. BARNARD] which gave currency to the
assertion that this debt was forty millions of dol-
ars. I learn that the gentleman from New York
has di-claiied having intended to beso understood.
1'rtat 1 may do him no injustice I have procured a
copy of his speech, as reported by himself, and
will read extracts from the portion to which I re-
er. The introduction to his statement is as fol-
'"But the President-thinks himself justified in i,... ..
the whole, that this Government has'relieved i 1n .....-
rein debt.' I am not able to flatter myself so imuchf in regard
o this item in our financial condition, as the ominous state-
ments which I hold in my hand, and wilt now present, may
serve to show."
Then follows the tfi-mont, headed: "Statement
of the public debt, regarded as ascertained and certain,
exi iing on the It of January, 1841, though the
anoutis n-ay not be exact."
The items are then given, including $9,000,000
'or the fourth instalment under the depuosite act of
1836, and $5,000,000 for claims on account of
Fiench spoliations, prior to 1800. The statement
"So that the whole amount of indebtedness and liabilities on
account ol past transactions, was, on the first of January, 1841,
probably not less than $36,015,000."
There was also another estimate presented by
the gentleman from New York on that occasion,
which was the second of his "ominous" state-
ments. It was headed "Estimate of the probe-
ble amount of public debt and liabilities, growing
out of past transactions, for which the Admini-
stration oh the next four years may have to provide,
being over ansh above all current expenditures;"
snd this latter estimate, including $5,000,000 as a
'sum necessary to provide a suitable average ba-
lance in the Treasury," is summed up at
The statements were characterized by the gentle-
man from New York as "ominous statements,"
tending to show the "fallacy" of the position of the
President that the country had relieved itself from
debt, and the first headed "statement of the-public
debt regarded as ascertained and certain."
It is proper to admit that there 1s one footing be-
fore nearly the close cf ihe first statement of
liamount of actual debt" $16,515,000.
Estimates, to be credible, must not only reach the
same results, but the items which make up those
results must agree. Taking even lhat conclusion
of the gentleman from New York, is he supported
b- the Secretary? 'No, sir. True, in one portion
of the Secretary's report there is an estimated
amount of debt and deficit of $16,088,215. But
how is this sum made up? By including four mil-
lions to be raised to be kept in thin Treasury, and
about three millions for new appropriations of this
extra session, and other items varying from those
pressed into service in the conjectures of the h. nd-.-i
man from New York. The Secretary acire. ',ott'
the gentleman from New York neither in his result
nor his items. There has been another estimate
published with quite an authoritative air, making this debt eighteen millions. The nile-
man from Georgia has worked out the problem at
fourteen millions-and thas, as I have said, gentle-

men agree in nothing except an attempt te incul.-
cate the belief that the late Administration has be-
queathed to the present an enormous load of public
debt. Sir, these varying statements cannot all be
true, and the people can never rely on any of them.
The subject is a matter of figures, and statements
in relation to it must be characterized by exactness
and uniformity, in order to gain or deserve confi-
dence with an intelligent community. Seeing these
fatal discrepancies, how can we rely on any of these,
estimates? Tory are, all of them, as I shall here-
after endeavor to show, baseless as "the fabric of
a vision."

dential election, the whole country rung with

In the letter of N. M. Rothschild and Sons to Pre
sident Harrison, of April 2, 1841, in reference to
the debt of Indiana, are the following passages:
"The unfavorable reports which have been circulated in re-
spect to the inadequate provision for the payment of the interest
have-already had a material effect in depressing the stock ot
Indiana, and the price has fallen ten tofifteen per cent. It
the non-payment should be actually allowed to take place, we
apprehend the consequences would be extremely prejudicial.
and would not only be strongly felt in the case oi the credit of
this individual State, but doubtless also in that of the credit of
all the States of the Union, and, we fear, would greatly injure,
likewise, the commercial credit of the counrjry." "
"The high sense expressed in your inaugi,arl address of the
Importance of the various States of the Uniion maintaining their
credit, by the fulfilment of their engagements, and the enligh-
tened views expressed in regard to the intimate connection of
their proceedings with the honor of the Republic, have pro-
duced much general satisfaction and approbation; and, alt
though aware how much the great concerns you have to direct
must engross your attention, we are emboldened by those fa-
vorable sentiments to bring to your notice the circumstance of
the deficiency in the means of the State of Indiana for the pay-
ment of her next dividend. A wordfrom you, ot the least in-
terposition in her favor, could not fail to afford relief in the
present exigency; and, it appears to us that, in order to be
effective, soE MMEAsUoE should be adopted with as little delay

"The General Government have always been so scrupulous
in discharging their admitted obligations, that the memorialists
cannot be mistaken in believing that they will take care that
their dependencies shall fulfif the contracts into which the7
have entered, especially as the laws made upon their credit
have actually been expended in the construction of public im-

"Webeg of you, in forwarding thecopies to Mr. Webster and
Ewing, to urge upon them this view of the case, in addition to
that on which all Americans should be most sensitive, viz:
good faith with the public creditor, which should be equally
dear to them with their liberty, and which, unless preserved
untarnished, must prove a fatal bar to their future prosperity;
and in a complicated Government like that of the United
States, the dishonor of onemember cannot but reflect on the
[Mr. FILLMORa here desired that the reply of Mr.
Ewing to the. letter of Mr. Williams should be
Mr. ATvuiaTos rat it as follows:
"'Sin: I have received your letter of the 14th instant, enclos-
lng copies of certain papers, purporting to have been received
from Messrs. Gowan ,nd Maix of London, relative 'o the bonds
of the BankofPens.- .a. I am not aware that this Depart-
ment has the sli i- restt or duty in the matter except the
general desire tiA evem y engagement made by corporations
or individuals may be strictly fulfilled "
Now, sir, it is well known by every one that the
"Treasury Department" could not act efficiently
in the premi.-s, however much they might be in-
fluenced by a "general" or particular "desire"
that these engagements should be strictly fulfilled,
unless in obedience to some action of Congress.
But does the Secretary of the Treasury plainly
and explicitly state that the General Gnnrvem-at
is only liable for debts contracted by itself, and
can only be hIi- responsiblee for such? And
what was the course of Mr. Webster with regard
to these most surprising letters addressed to the
late President and to himself. The reply is given
in his own words:
"These letters not appearing to require any answers, none
have been given."
Does silence give assent to the monstrous doc-
trines of those letters? It seems to me that
no letters could require a reply if these did not,
and it was, as I conceive, a gross dereliction of
duty that a suitable response was not given.
These European bankers should have been in-
formed at once that this General Government has
no constitutional power to pay the debts of the
States, and is in no wise responsible for them.
We surely ought to be much obliged to these
foreigners for their anxious solicitude for the ho-
nor of this General Government-for their "ap-
prehensions of prejudicial consequences" to our
credit-their regard for the national character of
the United States, and their high opinion of the
"enlightened views and zealous regard lor the real
interests" of the country entertained by some of
our statesmen; as also for their lectures to us in-
culcating the doctrine that good faith with the pub-
lic creditor should be equally dear to us with
liberty, and that "in a complicated Government
like that of the United States, the dishonor of one
member cannot but reflect upon the whole."
And these are the letters which the Secretary
says required no answer! But, on reflection, they
may have already discharged their office, for they
may have been intended, judging from the nature
of the reasons urged in its favor, to cause the pas-
sage of the Distribution bill. No one can surely
doubt that if an agent of these foreigners could
have had a vote here on thnt occasion, he would
have voted for the bill, and on the very grounds
set forth in these letters, which certainly have
much resemblance to many things we have heard
on this floor. It seems to me that such language
as that used by the gentleman from New York
tMr. BAaNAt.n] in this debate, has truly an "omi-
nous" import. Replying to his colleague, the gen-
tleman said:
"If he supposes the Governments of Europe are going to
give us credit for honor and integrity while a sovereign State
refuses to pay its debts, he is mistaken."
Does it not follow, that in order to support our
"credit for honor and integrity," we must our-
selves act in behalf of the States? True the gen-
tleman disclaims I eing an advocate for assumption,
but I cannot do so much injustice to his lucid un-
derstanding as to suppose him not to perceive that
his sentiments imply that the General Government
has some obligation incumbent upon it in relation
to these State debts. The gentleman from New
Yorkcharacterized the subject as "one to be looked
to by this Govevnmn:t, and this w/ole people, and
that may come u ,n us sooner than we are

aware;" and further, he exclaimed, "we may talk
about State rights-the Governments of Europe DO
NOT, and OUGHT NOT, to understand our doctrines
on that subject!" A "subject to be looked to by
this Government!" Why, unless the Govern-
ment has the power to act in relation to it? Why
"OUGnHT NOT" the Governments of Europe to "un-
derstand our doctrines of State rights," unless be-
cause they have a right to hold the General Go-
vernment responsible, and, of course, because
there is some responsibility resting upon us to as-
sume, guaranty, or discharge the debts? And was
this silence of the Secretary of State caused by the
consideration that the Governments of Europe
"ought not" to understand the position of the Ge-
neral Government on this subject? Sir, I repeat
that I cannot but consider such language as "omi-
nous" of attempts, to say the least, at still fur-
ther progress in the direction of entire assumption,
towards which the distribution bill is the first step,
rather let me say, stride. Let us look, for a mo-
ment, at the' operation of that bill connected with
the loan bill, as illustrated by an example of what
might take place under both. Suppose the Roth-
schilds to hold a bond of one of the States to the
amount of one hundred thousand dollars. Suppose
them to subscribe to this loan to the same amount.
Suppose (unrther the annual distributive share of
that State, in the proceeds of the public londs, to
be also of the same amount. The Rothschilds pay
the money to the Secretary of the Treasury, and
receive scrip iherefor. The Secretary of the
Treasury pays the money to the State, and the
late pays it in discharge of its bonds to the

SRothschilds, who thus have their money, and tho
security of the General Government, instead of the
Slate. The whole business might be transactec,
Sin a less circuitous manner. The Rothschilds wonlc
have merely to receive their scrip lor the loan ol
one hundred thousand dollars to the General Go-
Svernment, and in consideration thereof discharge
theirbond against the State-in other words,
the General Government might give to thi
SRoilhschilds ts security in place of the bond of the
State. Is riot this assumption to the amount indi-
cated? The mode may be covert and insidous,
but this is a fair illustration of the result.
1 am opposed to this twelve million loan, be
cause it is entirely unnecessary, and can only serve
as the commencemnent of a large national debt in
time of peace. I know the desire of such a debt
is frequently disclaimed, as is also the doctrine thai
a national debt is a national blessing; and I cer-
tainly do not impute to gentlemensenti uents oppo-
site to their professions. But were I for building up a
splendid central consolidated Government-for a
magnificent -cheme of internal improvements to
be carried on by the General Gotvernment-fer a
high tariff, which should enrich the few at the ex-
Spense of the many-were it my desire to make the
rich richer and the poor poorer, by taxing equally
poor and rich to benefit the latter and weaken the
former, then would I favor the creation of a na
f tional debt, and vote for this bill as an entering
wedge to such a system.

Solomon J. Lowe. J
PF'lHE object of this sut is to procure a decree
_1 for the sale of certain personal property,
which was, on the first day of January, in the year
eighteen hundred and thirty-eight, mortgaged by
the defendant, Solumon J. Lowe, to one Solomon
Lowe, since deceased,.of whom the complainant is
the administrator.
The bill states, that on the first day of January, in
the year eighteen hundred and thirty-eighl, the said
Solomon J. Lwe conveyed and transferred certain
personal property, particularly described in exhibit
A, filed with and as a part of said bill, unto the said
Solomon Lowe, in his life lime, by way of nmort-
gage to secure the payment of the sum of two thou-
sand five hundred dollars, with interest from the
first day of January eighteen hundred and forty,
which was then due and owing from the said Solo-
mon J. Lowe to the said Solomon Lowe, in two
years trom the date thereof.
That the said Solomon Lowe'has since departed
this life intesta'e, and that letters of administration
have been granted to the (complainant by the Or-
phlian's Court of Talbot county, and that the proper-
ty in said deed, from the said Solomon J. Lowe to
the said Solomon Lo we, has, by the death of the
said Solomon Lowe, become assets in the hands of
the complainant, and subject to the payment of the
debts ot the said intestate.
The bill further states that the said Solomon J.
Lowe resides out of the State of Maryland. I
It is therefore adjudged and ordered that the
complainant, by causing a copy of this order to be
inserted in some newspaper published at the city
of Washington, once in each of three successive
weeks before the tenth day of November next,
give notice to the said absent defendant of the ob-
j-ct and substance of this bill, and warn him to ap-
pear in this court in person, or by solicitor, on or
before the third Monday of November next, to an-
swer the premises, and show cause, if any he has,
why a decree ought not to pass, as prayed.

MONDAT, August 9, 1841.
Mr. McRoaCRTS moved to amend the bill by
adding the following: '-and the Territories of Wis-
konsan, Iowa, and Florida," so that the bill would
then read: "All the public lands of the United
States, wherever situated, which shall be sold sub-
sequent to the 31s t of December, shall be divided
among the twen y-six States of the Union, and the
District of Columbia, and the Territories of Wiskon-
tsmn, Iowa, and Florida," &c.
Mr. ALLEN hoped the Senator from Illinois
would modify the amendment so as to include the
Territories that may be hereafter organized, that
the benefits of this distribution might be enjoyed
by all. There was a manifest propriety in include
ing the people of these Territories. The people of
the Territories were usually in humble circum-
stances. They were induced to go from the old
States to Ihe Territories because, in general, they
were poor. When they got there they had to
spend some lime in clearing away the earth before
it i.s made productive, and they were put to the
great expense of travelling over an extensive
space of country, where are no roads, in order to
their seats of government, and their courts of jus
tice. All these, and a thousand other hardships,
made heir titua ion more trying by far than that
of any other portion of the American people. He
did not, theretloe, think, if this Govenment had
benefits to bestow, that it could follow them, as
objects more worthy than the hardy settlers of the
It had been objected, however, that they had no
right to include Territories in this distribution.
Perhaps this waits so; but, if so, it was because they
had no ri-ht to make the distribution at all. The
ground on which it was asserted that these Territo-
ries were to be excluded, was, that the lands held
by this Goverment were so held by it in trust for
the States, as sovereignties. Ttat, it was admitted,
did not apply to a large portion of the lands, which
were acquired by her share of this GoTernment,
and which are as manifestly the property of the
United States as the navy arsenals and armaments
But to take the question of the land which was
included in the deeds of cession. If it were true,
as had been urged on the other side of the cham-
ber, not only in this, but in the two preceding ses-
sions, in which this subject had been discussed,
that these lands were so ceded with a condition,
that after the payment of OIe national debt, grow.
ing out of the Revolutionary struggle, itiy were to
inure to the States, he asked them how they were to
inure to the States? They were to inure ho the
States, if at all, as sovereignties; and, if so, in
what proportion were they to inure? In an equal
proportion, as much to one as to another State, be-
cause of the fact of their sovereignties, without re-
gard to the ratio of their respective population. If
it were true that the States were taken as sovetrn
ties, then they had an equal undivided interest in
this soil. And if so, then the principle of distribut-
ing the proceeds according to their representation,
was a false principle, and a fraud on the small
Slates. Now, he would put the question, if, after
the payment of the old Continenwal debts, these
lands were intended by the States to inure to the
benefit of the States of this Union as sovereignties,
where they got the rule by which they gave to one
of tho-e sovereignties more of this land than
another? Did they find it in the deeds of cession?
Was it said in ihe deeds of cession, that when the
contingency should arise, to wit, the payment of
the Continental debt, these lands were to inure to
the benefit of the States as sovereignties? Was it
saidin what proportion they should so inure? No,
it was not stated. If it inured to the States as sove-
reignties, then it inured to them in equal propor-
tions, because their sovereignties were equal, and
made so by the Constitution.
But again, if this land, by the deeds of cession,
inured, after the payment of the Revolutionary
debt, to those S ates, as sovereignties, then it inured
ito hemrn, on the payment of the debt, without an act
i, C oi. press; an-t they had been usurpers in every
act ftur distr.baitu subsequent to that period. If
the lands so inured, the land, and not the money
arising from its sale, inured, and they had been
usurpers in converting these lands into money, and
then dividing it, per eapfla. Who authorized Con-
gress to sell these lands? If they inured atall, they,
inured at the time the contingency happened, and
they were then out of the power of this Govern-
ment: at-1 ea.-y not of ti.o Oo rsLnretaut, ie sta-
Lion to these lands, subsequently, had been a bare
fa-ed a id inexcusable ,-sertion of authority over
Tnere was an utter absurdity and folly in any
man saying that these lands inured to the States
after the payment of the old Continental debt, as
sovereignties, and were not intended to belong to
the people of the United States in their capacity of
a Union. Suppose they divided this money, they
divided it to the Stat.-s; they observed the federa-
tive feature of the Constitution in the division of
the money, and that federative feature in the exist-
ence of the States, as sovereignties; and notwith-
standing that, they took the population of the
States as the criterion of the amount that should
so inure. This argument was an utter falsity,
that these lands were ever ceded with an intention
of inuring to the States, as sovereignties, and there-
fore there was an utter absurdity in this claim set
up on the part of the States. If the States owned
this land, they owned it in equal proportions, be-
cause their sovereignties were equal; and by our
Constitution, they came into this Union on the
footing of equal sovereignties.
Such was not the case. He maintained that this
was but a mode in which it was attempted to avoid
the Constitution, and give up the public Treasury
as the object of distribution.
The bill contained tea percent, discrimination
in favor of the new States. Now, if this land
were ceded to the Sta'es, as sovereignties, and
were to inure to them as sovereignties, where did
they get an authority for making this discrimina-
tion in favor of these States? Every feature of
this bill contradicted the assertion of the bill, by
which it was proposed to distribute the proceeds of
the land. First, they contradicted it by taking the
ratio of representation as the criterion of distribu-
tion, when they should take the isolated standard
of the sovereignty of the State Second, by dis-
criminating to an amount of ten per cent. in favor
of the particular States, they also contradicted
this principle of equal sovereignty. But he would
ask Senators on the other side, now, to whom had
this Government a right to make this distribution?
Was it to the States?
This Government was framed for the express
purpose of enabling the action of the Government
to reach individuals, and not States; because, under
the old confederation it was found that the feeble-
ness of the Government, arose from the fact, that
the continental Congress could only act on the
States. What did they propose now! It was
true, that they collected the taxes as individuals,
but in distribution, they distributed to the States,
and not to individuals, thereby making the laws of
this Government apply on the sovereign States, as
the old confederation did.
No; he took the ground here, and it was proba-
ble that he should submit a resolution embracing
that principle, that this Government as the repre-
senuative of the States, and people of this Union,
has Ihe unlimited and unmodified title to ihus
land; and farther, that if they distributed this mo-
ney, they ought to distribute it as they would
the land itself, among. the people; and not
among the States of this Union He put the ques-
tion, if it were now a proposition to distribute this
land, whether they wou'd distribute it to the States
or to the people? If they distributed it to the States,
how would its benefits accrue? To the rich and

poor, according to their relative amount of proper-
ty. But the rich and poor were equally entitled to
their respective share in this land. He maintained
that in this Republie of ours, each citizen has an
equal claim to the lands, and they ought to distri-
bute an equal proportion, without regard to the for-
tunes of the people, because of the fact that they
are the owners in common of this property.
But he would not go further into this subject at
present. He dil not believe they could pass this
bill, either now or hereafter. If they trusted to the
hereafter, he would stake his life on the proposition
that they would never pass it; it was too odious in all
its principles and details-too barefaced an insult
to the people of this country-too deep an outrage
on the moral sense of 'this nation-too directly de-
structive of the Constitution and institutions of
this Government ever to meet the approbation of
this people. Antid, if Senators doubted it, although
it carried on its face the allurements of distribu-
tion, he was wil ing to take the field within the li-
mits of Ohio, wth the strongest and proudest of the
opposite party tn the question of distributing the
proceas of these lands. He would let the subject
pass over at this session-let them make it an is-


Sthe power to pass a uniform bankrupt law. The privilegewas
granted in the broadest and most unqualified language: the
single limitation was that the law should be uniform in its ope.
ration. Could it be said that a power like this was to be suf-
fered to lie dormant and never be exercised? Some
gentlemen held that it ought never to be used unless
there was the most urgent' and pressing necessity, but Mr.
R. could not agree in this opinion. The power was not so
much granted as a privilege, as it was confided to Congress
as a trust; it was a trust which Government was bound to
fulfil. Had not their predecessors viewed it in this light?
and had they not, in the close of the administration of the elder
Adams, fulfilled the trust by passing such a law in 1800? True,
it was at the following session repealed; but Mr. R understood
that party politics had had something to do with the repeal. The
law had been passed under John Adams; it was repealed under
Thomas Jefferson.
Mr. R. admii- i0 ra it ii i5 ... were inherent difficulties in
difficultiesin i.- a-- \%t,',. i very man of humanity must
feel anxious that the honest but unfortunate debtor should be
released from the liabilities he never could discharge, every
just man's mind as strongly repels the idea of releasing the
debtor who was dishonest and fraudulent.
Mr. R. here put the case of a man who had purchased real
estate, paid part and given a mortgage for the remainder, but
who being unable to pay, had suffered a foreclosure; the pro.
perty had reverted to the original owner, and 50, and, in some
cases, 75 per cent. of the whole purchase money was still hang-
ing over his head, at the mercy of the creditor; it was a liqui-
dated debt, on which execution could issue at any time. What
debtor would be content to toil for years, ay, for a lifetime, to
discharge such a debts Mr. R. wanted to see this class of debtors
emancipated; and he believed the country never could prosper
till it was effected. On the other hand, it was hard, where a
man holding a lucrative office had borrowed money and spent
it, and took the benefit of the act, retaining the office and its
emoluments, to which, in reality, his creditor had looked for
repayment. Such cases (and he mentioned several) ought, if
practicable, to be excepted from the relief.
Mr. R. next went into tke question of the constitutionality of
the bill. It related to two classes of cases, voluntary bankrupts
who applied for the benefit of the law on their own account, and
involuntary, in relation to whom application was made by their


sue directly to the people, and he would meet them
on the proposition before the people, and bind him-
self to the direct question, and trust the honor
and intelligence of the people of Ohio on a ques-
tion like this. He did net believe they could pass
this bill.

The Journal of yesterday was read and approved.
Mr. WISE rose, and requested the House to permit him to
record his vote in favor of the bill which passed this HIouse
yesterday, providing for the repeal of the bill commonly known
as the Sub-Treasury law.
Objections being made, the vote was not recorded.
Mr. BARNARD moved that the House resolve itself into

Mr. MASON of Ohio next obtained the floor, and went into
a very learned andargimeotative speech in reply, more par.
itcjalarly, to some of the positions previously taken by Mr.
GORDON, between whom and himself several explanations, re-

hearted creditors were more frequent in novels and play-books
thanin realimfe.
Mr. F. then went into a constitutional argument, reading au-
thorities to show what had been the received acceptation of
the term "bankrupt" at the time the Constitution had been
framed; and contended thatno subsequent change in its mean.
ing would warrant an interpretation inconsistent with the
known meaning of the words when they were inserted in the
instrument. Headmitted that the British law from which this
meaning had been derived was a narrow law, and ho might
wish it had been more liberal; but this conferred no power
on Congress to change the meaning of the terms of that or-
ganic law by which Congress itself, as well as the nation, were
bound. This was not a question of implied, but of granted
powers. The resort must be to the letter of the Constitution.
A bankrupt law had been intended as a shied to creditors

Mr. F. insisted that the law of 1800 had not been retrospect-
ive-it was prospective only. As to the difference of lan-
guage employed by the Constitution in restricting the States
.. i r.-.,ii ;-,.- ,i.- General Government, he thought the argu-
.... .... it -I. because, as the General Government was
the creature of the States, and had no powers but such as were
granted to it, it needed no restriction on a power not granted:
whereas the States, '-i,-: ..-i-, ,iI-.. -.. of power, did
need restrictions in ii. .. r' -.:. ..i p .n t-. r,. r. they did pos-

Dyspepsia yields without a struggle to its mild

Asthma, Complaints of the Breast, Piles, Worms,
Lumbago, Siricture, Diarrhoea, and Flux; usually
effecting a cure-always giving relief.

The Messrs. Harper have just issued Miss Sedg-
woek'. "Letters from Abroad, to Kindred at
Home," in two volumes. Simultaneously we have
a notice of the work from across the water, where
the book publishers have got the start a little of
the American. We avwil ourselves at random of
a few extracts which cccur in an extended review
of the book by the London Examiner of the 13th
"It seems like leaving home a second time. If
any thing could make us forget that we are travel-
ler-, it would be such unstinted kindness as we
have received here. You cannot see the English
in their homes, without reverercing and loving
them; nor, I think, can an Anglo-American come
to this, hiA ancestral home, without a pride in his
relationship to it, and an extended sense of the ob-
ligations imposed by his derivation from the Eng-
lish stock. A war between the two countries, in
the present state of their relations and intercourse,
would be fratricidal; and this sentiment I have
heard expressed on all sides."
"The English race, root and branch, are, what
wilh their natural shyness, their conventional re-
serve, and their radical uncourteousness, cold and
repelling. The politeness of the French is con-
ventional. It seems in part the result of their
sense of personal grace, and in part of a selfish
calculation of making the most of what costs no-
thing; and partly, no dcubt, it is the spontaneous
effect of a vivacious nature. There is a deep-seat-
ed humanity in the courtesy of the Germans.
They always see a to be feeling a gentle pressure
from the cord that interlaces them with their spe-
cies. They do not wait, as Schiller says, till you
'freely invite' to 'friendly stretch you a hand,'
but the hand is instinctively stretched out, and the
kind deed ready to follow it. This suavity is not
limited to any rank or condition. It extends all
the way down from the prince to the poorest pea-
sant. Some of our party, driving out in a hack-
ney coach yesterday, met some German ladies in
a coach with four horses, postilions, footmen in
livery, and other marks of rank and wealth.
What would Americans have done in a similar
position? Probably looked away, and seemed un-
conscious. And English ladies would have dene
the same; or, as I have seen them in Hyde Park,
have leaned back in their carriages, and stared
with an air of mingled indifference and insolence
through their eye glasses, as if their inferiors in
condition could bear to be stared at. The Ger-
man ladies bowed most courteously to the humble
strangers in the hackney coach."
"You may know him by the quantity and varie-
ty of his luggage, by every ingenious contrivance
lor comfort, (alas comfort implies fixtures,) im-
pregnable English trunks, travelling bags, dressing
cases, cased provisions for all the possible wants
that civilization generates, and all in travelling ar-
mor. There is no flexibility about an English-
man, no adaptation to circumstances and exigen-
cies. He must stand forth, wherever he goes, the
impersonation of his inland home. I said his lug-
gage betrayed him; I am sure his face and de-
meanor de. His muscles are in a state of tension,
hiP nerves seem to be on the outside of his coat,
his eyebrows are in motion; he looks, as my friend
says she felt when she first came to such a place
as this, 'as if all the people about her were rats;'
his voice is quick and harsh, and his words none
of the sweetest, so that you do not wonder the
continental people have fastened on him the de-
scriptive subriquet of 'Monsieur God d-n.' "
"We were fortunate in seeing one of the great
dramatic performers of Germany, Emile Devrient.
The play was one of the Princess Amelia's; a tale
of domestic sorrow, as I ascertained by my inter-
preters. There was no-scenic effect, no dramatic
contrivance to aid it. Tne scene was not once
shifted during the play. Devrient seemed to me,
as far as I could judge merely from his action,
expression, and voice, to deserve the applause
showered on him. The playing was all natural,
and the voices of the women marvellously sweet.
Have I never yet remarked to you the sweet, low
lone of the German woman's voice? From the
cultivated a:tiirs-s to your cliaarherman1, it is a mu-
s cal ptla-ure io h'ar itein p; sk. Is it an atmo.-
pheric effect, or the breath of a placid temper?
The later, I thought, when, a moment since, my

"I leave this country with an interest, respect,

under tleir drooping loads as we passed them in
our walks. Addison says that the general saluta-
tions of his type of all benignity, Sir Roger de Co-
verly, came from the overflowings of humanity,'
-so surely did these. On the whole, the Germans
seem to me the most rational people I have seen.
We never 'are,' but always 'to be blessed.' They
enjoy the present, and, with the truest economy of
human life, make the most of the materials of con-
tentment that God has given them. Is not this
better than vague, illimitable desires, and ever-
changing pursuits?"

nearer, and when she ended, lie put his arm arotind

such a grace, 'Je te remercie, mon reur.'

them, saying, 'Ce sont les hoses qui me meuvent
le plus;je ne peux jamais en parler.'* You have
an infallible test of the heart when you know what
does most move it. In this uncontrollable emotion,
Sismondi betrayed the unbounded love of freedom

teenth and sixteenth centuries. American edition,
2 volumes, just published and this day received by
May 8. F. TAYLOR,

The publishers of the Globe have recently given
to the country an exposition of the motives which
prompted the attempt by the Federal party to pros-
trate their establishment, by the lawless abrogation
of their contract as Printers to the Senate. They
showed that there were already six Federal
newspapers-to which a seventh ia about to
be added-published at Washington--.ull devoted
o the dissemination of Federal principles,
and the defence of Federal meastins. And
to make this overwhelming battery of Fede-
ral presses at the seat of Goveruniuent tell
with the more effect throughout the Union,
the character of the Globe was to be tar-
nished, its means impoverished, and its politi-
cal influence destroyed, by a sweeping denuncia-
tion of infamy on the part ot the Federal leaders in
the Senate-by throwing the dead weight of an ex-
penditure of $40,000 in preparation to do the Con-
gressional work, on the hands of its publishers, (the
printers whosecontract was violated,) and by having
his whole work of defamation and ruin accomplish-
ed by the judgment of the Senate of the Union to
give it the sanction of thehighest tribunal known
to our country. The work was done by a caucus
packed majority of Federaists, and the Editors of
the Globe are left to sustain their establishment by
the patronage they may receive from political friends
for the papers they publish. We will not ask or re-
ceive the sort of lumping contributions by which
the banks and Federal politicians sustain their
presses. We will abandon the publication of the
Globe, if it cannot be supported by the regular sub-
scription price of the paper. If such of our Demo-
cratic friends whose circumstances do not justify a
subscription to the daily or semi-weekly paper, will
patronize the cueaper publications issued by us-the
Extra Globe-the Congressional Globe, and the
Appendix-we shall be enabled to maintain,
as heretofore, our corps of Congressional Reporters
at the cost of $3,000 per annum, and to draw to
our aid some of the ablest pens in our country.
We trust, under these circumstances, and at a time
when the greatest interests of the country, and its
future destiny, are put at stake upon the events
with which the first year of the present Adminis-
tration is pregnant, that no individual who has
the cause of Democracy at heart, will hesitate
to meet this appeal, when at ths same time he
will feel assured that this trifling tax for his own
advantage, will sustain in triumph at Washington
the long-tried and faithful presto: of his party.
THE EXTRA GLOBE will be published weekly
for six months, commencing on Wednesday, the
19th May, and ending on the 19th November next,
making twenty-six numbers, the last o0 which will
contain an index. Each number will contain
sixteen royal quarto pages. It will contain princi-
pally political matter. The political aspect and
bearing of the measures before Congress during the
special session will be fullydeveloped, and when the
proceedings are considered of much interest to the
public, they will be given at length.
PENDIX will begin with the extra session of Con-
gress, to commence on Monday, the 31st of May
next, and will be continued during the session.
The CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE will give an impartial
history of the proceedings of both Houses of Con-
gress; and the APPENDIX will contain all the
speeches on both sides of important subjects, at
full length, as written out, or revised, by the mem-
bers themselves. They will be printed as fast as
the business of the two Houses furnishes matter
for a number. It is certain that we will publish
more numbers of each that there will be weeks in
the session. They will be issued in the same form
as the Extra Globe, and a copious index to each.
Nothing but the proceedings and speeches of Con-
gress will be admitted into the Congressional Globe
or Appendix.
These works being printed in a suitable form for
binding, with copious indexes, will form a valua-
ble, indeed, a necessary, appendage to the library
of the statesman and politician, giving, as they do,
at an extremely moderate price, a complete epi-
tome of the political and legislative history of the

The business of the morning was opened by re-
fusing the ordinary courtesy of printing resolu-
tions of a meeting of citiz-ns of the Isle of Wight,
Virginia, in relation to the system of measures
which Mr. CLAY is striving to force through Con-
gress at this extra session, through gag laws, en-
forced under his management in the House, and
which, by indirection, he seeks to fix upon the Se-
nate. It will be seen, from the course which he
persists in giving to all the memorials sent in by
the people in opposition to his schemes, that he is
determined to put all remonstrances against his
measures upon a footing with abolition petitions,
consigning them to the table, and refusing to print.
We annex a sketch of this morning's proceedings
on this subject from our Reporter's notes.
Mr. CALHOUN presented a memorial and reso-
lutions adopted a few days since by a large and re-
spectable number of the citizens of the Isle of
Wight county, Virginia, at a meeting held in the
court house of the county. The memorial and re-
solutions are couched in most respectful terms, but
at the same time express in strong language the
opinions of the meeting, that the measures attempt-
ed to be forced upon the country at this extra ses-
sion, are not approved of by the great body of the
people of the United States. Much had been said
in praise of the hasty action of the other House,
designated so emphatically a "glorious" House, be-
cause of its precipitate action; but he, (Mr. CAL-
BOUN,) woulJ venture to say that never were mea
sures so repugnant to the great body of the people,
as those very measures for the hasty passage of
which that House had been so much lauded. The
people never could, he would unhesitatingly assert,
he brought to believe that a National BAnk-na-
tional debt-distribution-and high taxation, were
reasons for which their representatives would be
entitled to their thanks. Those who wanted such
measures might call it "glorious" legislation; but
the people never would approve of such measures.
He held that the people had a right to be heard,
and he would therefore content himself for the
present, in moving that the papers which he had
presented, be printed. He requested the Secreta-
ry of the Senate would have the goodness to read
The Secretary of the Senate then read the memo-
rial and resolutions of which the following is an
At a meeting of a large number of the citizens
of the Isle of Wight, JosriAH HOLLEMAN presided,
and W. H. JORDAN acted as Secretary. The
meeting was addressed by Colonel ARTHUR SMITH,
and by JOEL HOLLEMAN, esq. Resolutions were
adopted unanimously, that Congress has no power
to create a National Bank. That should Con-
gress pass a Bank or Fiscal Agent, it is the opi-
nion of the meeting the charter may be rightfully
repealed. That the distribution of the proceeds of
the public lands, with a deficiency in the Treasury,
and an assumption of the debts of the States, is in
violation of the rights of the States, and a dan-
gerous encroachment upon the liberties of the peo-
ple. Tnat Congress has no power to lay and col-
lect taxes, except to pay the debts of the General
Government, and to provide for the common de-
fence and general welfare, and has no power to
lay and collect taxes, &c. with a view to the pro-
tection of any interest, either manufacturing, com-
mercial or agricultural. That the donation made
to the widow of the late President of the United
States, was a palpable violation of the Constitu-
tion, and an unwarrantable waste of the public
money. That copies of these proc-edings be
forward to the Hon. JOHN C. CALHOUN and Hon.
THOMAs H. BENTON of the Senate, and Hon.
JOHN W. JONEzs of the House of Representatives,
with a request that they present them to the Con-
gress of the United States.
After they were read, Mr. CALHOUN renewed
his motion to print, and called for the yeas and
The question was accordingly put, and negatived
-yeas 19, nays 20, as follows:
YEAS-Messrs Allen, Benton, Buchanan,
Calhoun, Cuthbert, Fulton, King, Linn, MeRo-
berts, Mouton, Nicholson, Pierce, Smith of Con-
necticut, Sturgeon, Tappan, Walker, Williams,
Woodbury, and Wright-19.

Clay of Kentucky, Clayton, Dixon, Evans, Gra-
ham, Huntington, Miller, Morehead, Porter, Pres-
ton, Simmons, Smith of Indiana, Soumhard, Tall-
madge, White, and Woodbridge-20.
bir. CALHOUN said this was the first time he had
ever known so respectful and unexceptionable in
expression of the opinions of a large and respecta-
ble meeting, to be refused the usual courtesy of
being printed. It was the first time since the be-
ginning of this Government that a general gag sys-
tem was attempted to be extended to the exclusion
of public opinion. Here was the opinion of a
large and respectable public meeting shut out
from publicity, and from the common courtesy of
printing, by a bare majority in favor of this gag
system. Let it be told to the people that they are
no more to remonstrate; but will that effect the ob-
ject of the gentlemen? They may gag this
body, bat they cannot gag the people? Do the
gentleman think by silencing such memorials
and resolutions, they can escape public comment?
If they do, they deceive themselves: this is but the
mattering ot the thunder, and the gentlemen and
their measures will be swept before the coming
storm as the chaff before the whirlwind. With
these remarks for the present, he would now move
to lay the papers on the table.
Mr. BENTON requested Mr. CALtIOtM to with-
draw his motion to lay the proceedings on the
table for a moment, and Mr. CALHOUN withdrew
his motion.

Mr. BENTON then went on to say, that, having
conformed to the decision of the Senate in moving,
without debate, yesterday morning to take up the
Fauquier proceedings, he would Row take the op-
portunity to say something of those resolutions,
and the reasons which were urged for refusing to
print them. These reasons may be comprehended
under three heads: 1. That they related to subjects
which had passed by, and with which the Senator
had nothing further to do. 2. That they were dis-
respectful in their language. 3. And that they as-
serted the right of repeal in relation to the Fiscal
Bank. These were the objections; and to these I
answer, that the first and second objections are un-
founded in point of fact, and so shown to be by
the resolutions. One of them applies to this extra
session itself, the calling of which it condemns,
and I think most justly. The session still con-
tinues, and the resolution denies the wisdom
and economy of this session-condemns its
call, and its objects--and considers its existence
a public injury. In all this I cncur with the
meeting; and as the session still continues, this re-
solution, of course, applies to a measure which
has hot passed by; and, therefore, the objection to
it is tunfounded. Another resolution applies to the

nex tax hill-the tea tax bill-which it utterly and
most righteously condemns; and that bill is still
before us. A third measure to which the resolu-
tions apply, is the land distribution bill, and that
is still before us. They also apply to the Bank
bill which was still in the other House when the
resolutions were offered, and which may be before
the S--nate again. Thus, three of the subjects
mentioned in the resolutions, were, and are still
before us; a fourth was, and may be, before us;
and all of them were before as at the time the
meeting was held. The objections, then, which
applies to the past by, or gone by, character of
the measures is unfounded in point of fact.
With respect to the next objection, that the
resolutions were disrespectful, Mr. B. said that this
objection was one which was susceptible tcl a de-
cisive answer. The resolutions would speak for
themselves, and show their own character. They
had been read in this chamber, and seen to be per-
fectly respectful. They will be published, (I shall
make them an appendage to these remarks, and
for that purpose now ask the Secretary to give me
a copy of the paper,) and the public will judge.
The public can judge as well as we; and, to help
out their judgments, I shall merely refer them to
the character of the memorials and resolves sent to
this chamber by the Bank party during the panic
session, 'avishing every odious epithet on President
JACKSON and the Government; and the whole of
which were received here with so much honor,
commented upon with so much zeal, and printed
with so much haste, and now forming six volumes
of documents on our shelves. To the third objection,
no question of fact is raised. The fact is admitted.
Ote of the resolutions 'declares the repealability
of this Fiscal Bank, and the duty of Congress to
repeal it. This is admitted and justified. I say the
people have a right to ask for this repeal, and to
be respectfully treated when they do ask for it! It
is their right; and it is for themselves to assert that
right at home, and for their representatives to vin-
dicate it here. What! Do those who advocate
abolition petitions-who want them received and
respectfully considered-do they object to a repeal
petition as disrespectful? If so, let the people know
it. The Fauquier memorial has been refused
a printing by this body, for reasons, not one of
which have any foundation in fact, except that
which relates to the repeal. That is proof that the
paper is thus treated because the word repeal is
in it.
The next movement made by Mr. CLAY, was
one upon the PRESIDENT. The land bill was the
unfinished business of yesterday, and at the stage
of amendment in Committee of the Whole. Mr.
CLAY moved to lay it on th3 table, and take up the
bill repealing the Independent Treasury. The mo-
tive for this sudden move was apparent. Mr.
CALHOuN at once openly exposed it. He charac-
terized it as aa indelicate and indecent attempt to
forestall the decision of the Executive in relation
to the Bank bill. If he signed the Bank bill, the
repeal of the Independent Treasury law was use-
less. If the Bank charter were vetoed, the re-
peal was only intended to embarrass, by throwing
the Treasury on the Execative, under circum-
stances which those who were now contriving to
effect that object, had clamored against for years.
After a discussion of an hour or two, Mr. CLAY of
Kentucky effected his object. The bill, as amend-
ed, was adopted, and sent back to the House for
final action; and in leis than half an hour ushered
into the Senae by the C!erk' of th, House for the
signature of the Presiditt oF te Sn-iate; and then
doubtless was sent under whip to President ITLER.
The consideration of the distribution bill was
then resumed.
The land distribution bill was urged after the
repeal of the Sub-Treasury. As in the case of
the National Bank, the bill seems to have passed
in caucus, with an understanding, that no essential
amendment should be allowed-propositions of
Western growth have been suce-sssively re-
jected by the votes of members from the
West, and who have hitherto, in accordance
with the will of their constituents, supported
them. Such is the force of the caucus partydrill
over principle and the interests of the people. The
votes on various amendments offered, exhibit a
perfect revolution (not in the sentiments of Western
members, for they declared they were unchanged)
but in their course of action ia regard to measures,
which all from the new States have been hitherto
almost unanimous in supporting without regard to
party. We give some instances.
Mr. McRoBERTs of Illinois moved to strike out
that portion of the bill which denied pre-emption
rights to actual settlers on the public lands before
the surveys were made, We believe there never
was a pre- option bill from which the remotest
occupants-those who had gone farthest in the wil-
derness-were excluded. Both the Senators from
Illinois said that there were organized counties in
that State, in which there were mire than a thou-
sand settlers, and instances of improvements oca
single farms, consisting of mill, and other c-r'tt
edifices, worth more than $10,000; and yet by
this bill, assuming to be a permanent pre-emption
bill, it is refused to protect such industrious and
meritorious settlers in their homes, because the
lands are not surveyed. Such an exclusion, we
believe, was never made before; and yet Mr.
SMITn of Indiana, chairman of the committee, who
has, we think, voted for pre-emptive rights, and
Mr. WooDBRInum, from Michigan, and Mr. HEN-
SEaSON, from Mississippi, voted against this amend-
ment in favor of emigrants, and defeated it. The
vote of either of them would have carried it-it
stood 23 for the amendment, 24 against it.
Mr. YouNa then moved to strike out the clause
excluding alien emigrants from pre-emption rights
under the bill; and this, also, was defeated by the
votes of Messrs. HENDERSON, PORTER, SMITH of
Indiana, and WOODatuonE, from the new States.
But the most important amendment, as it regards
the growth and improvement of the new States,
was that of Mr. Youso, proposing the introduction
of the graduation system, cheapening the price of
the refuse lands. This proposition, which has uni-
formly received the support of all representing the
new States, was rejected by the following vote:
ayes 18, noes 27.

The amendment of Mr. YOUNa giving to the
States the right to tax the public lands within their
limits, was advocated by Mr. MCRoBERTS, and op-
posed by Messrs. SMITH of Indiana and WHITE,
and was negatived-ayes 18, noes 22.
Mr. LINN then offered his amendment to appro-
priate the proceeds of the sales of the public lands
to the national defence. In support of this amend-
ment, Mr. L. addressed the Senate for about an
hour in a speech replete with patriotic sentiments,
clothed in beautiful and appropriate language.
When he had concluded, Mr. KINO expressed his
sense of the importance of this amendment, and his
desire to address the Senate upon it, but he would
forego this desire, if it was the wish of gentlemen
on the opposite side to tate the vote on ordering
the bill to a third reading this evening.
Mr. SMITH of Itdiana declined this proposition.
Mr. KiNsO said the Democratic Senators had ex-
pressed their willingness, for the purpose of expe-
diting the public business, to take the vote without
further debate; but if gentlemen on Lhe other side
would not consent to this, he wished to submit his
views on the amendment now before the Senate,

and for that purpose, as it was late, he would move No quorum being present, a call of the House
an adjournment. The motion for adjournment, was moved and dented by-yeas 62, nays 73.
S u tn A quorum being present,
however, was withdrawn, and the Senate went Mr. BARNARD renewed his motion, but,
into Executive session. The SPEAKER wished him to suspend a moment

Extract from a letter dated
LEXINGTON, August 4, 1841.
DEAR SIR: I cannot give you the vote of the
county, but Wicklffe has beat Clay about 100
votes. This settles the dictation question of the
Hon. H. CLAY in Fayette county, ft.r the rest of
his life time. He may direct the affairs of the
Government at Washington, as he did under the
younger Adams, but he can no longer dictate to
the people of his own county. Judging from the
violence and expense of conducting an election in
Kentucky, and the accounts of similar doings in
England, there is very little left for us to boast of.
If we had such doings in the Presidential electi us
of 1840, what is it we may not expect by 1844,
with the United States Bank of thirty millions? I
fear it is too late to correct the great inichief pro-
duced by the demoralizing acts of the Whigs in
1840, to be overcome so long as they have the
funds of the United Slates Bank at command. It
is true there are few such men as Biddle, but if
the warnings of Generrl Jackson ten years ago,
were not sufficient to open the eyes of the na-
tion, what may we not look for under a president
and directory more cautious? The open profli-
gacy exposed by the Clayton Committee, ought to
have settled that question, but the people refused
to hear any thing until Mr. Biddle came otn
himself in 1841, with his letters confessing and
justifying every thing.
Yours, &c.
P. S. I have opened my letter to say that the
election is closed-Wickliffe and McCann are
elected on the Wickliffe ticket, and R. S. Tood,
President of the Bank of Kentucky, is also elected,

It will be seen that one Democrat, Wm. J.

filled by Whigs, they are of the independent and

the regular nominated Whig ticket.

be relied on as correct:

From the Savannah Republican of August 7
By the Usited States steamer Gen. Taylor,
Peck, arrived here yesterday, we have the gratily-
ing intel igence from Florida that ihe war, for the
ninety-ninth time, may now be considered as at an
end. Wild-Cat's whole band, men, women, chil-
dren, and negroes, 160 in all, have come in at
Tampa, and 40 more Indians of another band were
on their way, and were expected a. Ta npa in two
dajs. A gentleman who came on i 1 the Gen.
Taylor, says that he does not think another rifle
will be fired by the enemy.
When Co-a coo-chee's family came in, Col.
Worth told him that he might go on shore from the
schooner whete he was confined and see them.
He refused to go, saying that though he was anx-
ious to see his family, he would not permit them to
see him in irons. The Colonel finally consented to
let him go on shore without his shackles, and after
a warm greeting with hi. family, he dined with the
Colonel, and then returned on board the schooner,
As soon as his irons were replaced, he told Col.
Worth that he had but one request more to make,
and that was, to allow him and his people to go West
as soon as ; ssible!
THE GAG RULE.-The New York American says
that Mr. Sergeant made a complete argument on
ihe Bank question in one hour, and that this proves
the excellence of the gag rule, for which, it is ot-
served, Mr. Sergeant voted.
Lest winter Mr. F.cteint. we understand, con-
sumed three or foar days in arguingasingle cause,
(that of Jones and Dunn,) before our Supreme
Court, and all the other lawyers in the ease occu-
pied from two to three weeks, in consequence of
which a great number of eases were left unargued.
Mr. Sergeant P'so consumed, we think, some seven
hours in our Sta convention, in arguing a single
cause of the Constitution in relation to corpora-
We should suppose that the people of the whole
United States were as important as Messrs. Jones
and Dtmnn; and that the Bank question, involving
constitutionality and expediency, required as long
for two hundred and forty men to ,'-cuss, as a sin-
gle suit did for four men to discuss, yet Mr. Ser-
geant voted to take the Bank bi'l out of Committee
of the Whole in fiveIdays.-Pennsylvanian.
THE FISCAL AGENT.-The Charleston Mercury
has a hard hit at the Whigs, in reference to their
doctrine that Con-'ress can make a Bank constitu-
tional by deciding that it is necessary and pro-
per." Of course if one Congress can make it con-
stitutional by declaring it necessary and proper, a
subsequent one can make it unconstitutional by de-
claring it unnecessary and improper. Therefore,
upon their own doctrine, if the Bank be constitu-
tional while the Congress is Whig, it will become
unconstitutional when a Democratic Republican
Congress shall be elected.
If I have felt painfully that the men and women vf
what is called good society" in America are

ranny of an artificially constructed society.-Miss
The New Hampshire Patriot speaks in deserved
terms of commendation of thii gentleman's reply
to Mr. Fillniore, while the Revenue bill was under
consideration. The "Patriot says:
"Mr. Ather'on answered him in a most trium-
phant manner, putting to flight his fictions and his
perversions. In point of logical argument, correct
and sear-hing analysis, and simple but powerful
presentation of the t;iuthi, where it has been enve-
loped in misrepresentation, Mr. Athertoni has but
few superiors in the House. In tha first place he
showed the gross injustice of Mr. Fillmore's at-
tempit to ground the extravagance of the present
Aihninisirtlion upon -h-.' i extravagance of
tie last. In the second placid h, showed that the
present receipts of the Treasury are sufficient for
an economical administration of the Uovernment.
And in the third place he showed that the present
receipts are more than the amount, which the Fe-
deralists previous to the last elections said the Go-
vernment ought to expend-$13,000,000. He then
laid bare the design of taxing the people to the ex-
tent of about $13,000 000 annually more than
w-uld have been done by the late Administration,
had it been kept in poit-ir "
EFFECTS OF SPECULATION.-We insert the fol-
lowing account of a couple of instances of dis-
tress, arising out of this cause, taken from an arti-
cle in Bicknell's Reporter, on the depreciation of
the value of stock in Philadelphia:
"A gentleman but a few hours since, stepped
into our office, who three years ago, had a fortune
of nearly $100,000, and an income of $7,000 a
year. He has now but barely the means of sub-
sistence. His funds were unfortunately invested
in the stocks that are the most depreciated Anon
other still more painful instance has come to our
knowledge, in the case of a gentleman who four
years ago was supposed to be worth nearly half a
million of dollars. He lived in the most expen-
sive style, and br, usht up his children according-
ly. But he touched with the mania of
speculation, and invested largely in Western and
Southwestern stock. Ruin came upon him like
an avalanche. He staggered before such unex-
pected adversity and comparative poverty, and is
believed to have died of a broken heart."
EXPLORING EXPEDITION.-iTue correspondent of
the Baltimore Republican, under date of Valpa-
raiso de Chlili, 5th April, says: Our last advices
from tite Saedwich Islands, by a vessel arrived at

THE PEOPLE ARUUSED !--The hot hot haste and
indecent prec pitation of the Wuigs in forcing their
obnoxious and misehievious measures before Con-
gress, by the aid of the one hour Shrewsbury clock
gag law; the gag law upon all amendments wit,-
out debate; the rushing out of the C inmittee of
the Whole, alter a very restricted debate, and the
previous question in the H- use, are rousing the in-
dignation and energies of a free people. Take
the bank bill alone as an illustration. Here is a
measure of unparalleled importance, which has
excited the feelings of the country for 50 years,

modifications and an extraordinary phasis; the
soul too of that immense batch of measures, Distri-
bution, Tariff, National Debt, &c. which are
urged upon an extra session during the heat of the

If Mr. Tyler chooses to obey the behests of Mr.
Clay, he will sign this compromise bill. He will
strike his name from the list of independent men,
and sink into the public tool of an arrogant dicta-
tor. He will lay his conscience, all his ancient
principles, all his recent opinions, at the feet of him
who wishes to "shove him from his stool," and in
the mean time to play the viceroy overhim. But Mr.
Tyler cannot, will not, submit to such degradation
as this. Le, him sign this bill, and bis wand cf
office is for ever stricken from his hand. He will
become mere drift wood on the stormy sea of Whig
politics-the merest king log that was ever sent
forth as a laughing stock to friend and to foe. But
again we say, he cannot, will not Sign this mon-
strous bill.-Richmond Enquirer.

From the Baltimore Republiceani
We are pleased to be able to present the follow-
ing correspondence to our readers, by which they
will see, that the distinguished individual, who has
been selected as the candidate of the Democratic
Republican Reform party of the State, declares
that he has "uniformly opposed tadt 'public policy
which has brought this State to a most perilous posi-
tion;" and that he promises to "exeit, if elected,
all the influence of his station" to "change and re-
form the system of measures," to which may "be
traced the public grievances and embarrass-
men tN!"

BALTIMORE, June 11, 1841.
Hon. FRANcts THoMas-
SIR: The undersigned officers of the Democratic
State Convection, in obedience to the instructions
of the State Convention, apprise you of your una-
nimous selection as the candidate of the Demo-
cratic party for the next Governor of Maryland.
In making this announcement, we take pleasure
in stating, that we rejoice that the decision of the
Convention was favorable to one whose past politi-
cal services have justly endeared him to the people,
and which give the surest guarantee that in the
event of his election, the honor and character of
the State will be fully maintained during his ad-
With the expression of our sincere wish for your
political success and personal happiness,
We are, sir,
Respectfully, your fellow-citizens,
THINOTON, Vice Presidents.
R. COLLIER, HENRY HoBss, Secretaries.

FaEDERIcK, August 7, 1841.
GENTLEMEN: Your very kind letter, notifying
me of my nomination as the candidate of the De-
mocratic party, for the next Governor of Maryland,
reached the post office at this place during my ab-
sence. It remained there so long, before its con-
tents were known to me, that a formal acceptance
of the nomination seemed uncalled for, inasmuch
as my name had, in the interim, been before the pub-
lic for that high office without protest on my part.
Having been informed, however, that a reply to
your letter would be agreeable, I take much plea-
sure in declaring, that the confidence manifested
for me by the Democratic State Convention, is in
the highest degree gratifying to my pride.
The office o 'Chief MagLitrate of Maryland is, at
all times, one of vast impo. inoce; and it would be,
under ordinary circumstances, considered by me a
most grateful compliment to be selected by my
friends as a candidate for that high station. But
when I reflect epon the present condition of the
State, I feel the liveliest gratitude to those who
have thought me worthy the honor of sharing the
responsibility imposed upon all who are to devise
measures for the relief of the people from the evils
consequent upon gross mismanagement of our pub-
lic affairs.
Having uniformly opposed that public policy
which has brought this State to a most perilous po-
sition, I make no sacrifice of former opinions in
promising to exert, if elected, all the influence of
the station for which I am a candidate, to change
and reform the system of measures to which the
most casual observer may trace the public griev-
ances and embarrassments.
Accept, gentlemen, my cordial thanks for the
friendly manner with which you have communica-
ted the wishes of the convention, and the assurance
that I am, most sincerely, your friend and fellow-
To Gen. Tobias E. Stansbury, President; H. G. S.
Key, George Handy, Elias Brown, Vice Presi-
dentis; George W. Sherwood, John C. Le Grand,
and others, Secretaries.

Mr. HAMPTON, the Agent, has handed us the Au-
gust number of this work, more excellent in ap-
pearance, we must admit, than any we have yet
seen in competition. One of Larteu's best mezzo-
tint engravings ("the Penitent Son") illustrates a
good moral story, and a fine plate of colored fash-
ions are to be found on opening the book. But
the most rare and beautiful engraving we have
ever seen is a lace pattern, surromil og a rose of
surpassing beauty. This is said to be ihe modern
style that is used, and to be exactly in the fashion,
the lace must be wrought by the fairhand of the lady.
In this number we find original articles from Geo.

b WAIM'S VERtMIFUGE.-The most usefu
j Family P' &d' *, ever offered to the public.
This wel hnown Anti-Dysenteric and Worn
Medicine has proved successful these twelve year,
past, and is universally acknowledged by all wh(
have tried it, to be far superior to any other medi
cine ever employed in the diseases for which it is
recommended. It is perfectly safe, and no child
will refuse to take it.
Worms being especially a iinfest persons oJ
debilitated digestive organs and emaciated constitu.
tions, much mischief is often done by the ordinary
worm medicines, which generally consist of thi
strongest purgatives, calomel, that destroyer of the
constitution, bitters, pink root, spirits of turpentine
wormseed oil, &c. &c. Articles of this kind may de-
stroy worms, but they debilitate the stomach, and
often materially injure the general health, without
removing the cause. Swaim's Vermifuge has the
Wculiar advantage ofremoving the cause of worms
givingg vigor and healthy action to the stomuch,
oowels, and organs of digestion, thereby relievini
measles, croup, whooping cough,&c. This medicine
by invigorating the internal functto:,s-, srengthening
the organsofdigestion, and removing the primary
cause which creates morbid secretions, will relieve
Bowel Complaints, Cholic, Dysentery, Dyspepsia,
and the whole train of biliary affections, Sick
Headache, Acidity of the Stomach, Foul Breath,
Bleeding Piles, &c. It is an antidote in the early
ltaeeq of Fever and Cholera Morbus. As a general
tamilv medicine, it stands unrivalled, as it is ap-
plicable to most of the diseases to which children
are subject. Swaim's Vermifuge will be found ol
some utility to persons who occasionally indulge
in the conviviality of the table; a dose taken be-
fore dinner will anticipate the effects of acidity of
the stomach, not unfrequently produced by wine,
In the neglect of this, however, a dose in the
morning or the following morning, will, in most
instances, restore the tone of the stomach.
Families resident in the country, and isolated
a measure from medical advice, travellers jour.
neying to the far West, or bound to distant ports,
seminaries and all public institutions and charita-
ble associations, will find this remedy, constantly
at hand, of great utility.

conol Edinburgh edition corrected: with an addi-
titial chapter on the ORDER OF WORSHIP, by F. W.

The question concerning the divine right of the
name Christian, it is believed, in the essays of our
volume I, will be fully settled; while the discus-
sion of Order, in the "Pieces Saved," may be but
just commenced. And yet, if we mistake not, in
these pieces are established some important princi-
ples. we propose to begin this valume with Br.
A. Campbell's Millennial Harbinger Extra for
I )b' r 1835. Of this, M. Winans, in a letter to
min paibLied in December following, says:
---"This same Essay gave me as much, if
not more consolation than any thing written by you
or any other man since I believed the Apostles'
teaching to be of God."
The work of Haldane, which we propose to re-
publish, shows hnim to have been a close reasoner, a
good scholar, and a reformer of ardent piety. Of
it we possess the only copy which we have ever
seen or heard of in this country. Br. A. Crihfield,
to whom we submitted this work, and asked his
opinion, while visiting us in the summer of 1839,
responds in his Heretic Detector for March fol-
lowing, thus:
"The Volume will no doubt be serviceable
to the brethren in different parts of the country.
Brother Emmons will perhaps find it necessary to
make some retrenchments and emendaiions, and
when these are judiciously effected, (and to this
task brother E. i's every way competent,) the new
edition will throw much light upon the subject of
the Social Worship of Christians."
These three volumes, if all published, will con-
tain between 1,000 and 1,200 medium 8vo or large
12tno pages, and any one of them over 300 pages
We give a prospectus for all, believing the publica-
tion of all at this time a desideratum; and we only
ask for patronage enough to defray expenses, and
we will publish all within the next year; but we
shall plit that .firs', for which we receive first re-
turns of the mo- t subscribers. We propose to pub-
lish on good paper, with fair type, in semi-monthly
numbers, of a sheet each.
One dollar a volume on the receipt of the first
number. Any person obtaining five subscribers,
and remitting pay for them, will be entitled to a
copy for his trouble. We will wait until the 15th
of July next for a report of promises; and if we shall
then have received enough to authorize us to give
sue promise of some hundred dollars for paper, the
first sheet will be issued early in August. We
want no subscribers who will not pay promptly ac-
cording to our terms.

This extraordinary medicine s a Purgative
Medicine so justly balanced, and withal so natural
to the human constitution, that they cannot possibly
inj urc even the most delicate; at the same time,if used
in such a manner as to produce free evacuations by
the bowels, it is absolutely impossible for pain et
distress, of any kind, to continue long in the body.
The reason is plain: tney cleanse the system of
those humors which are opposed to health, and

always obtaining relief, and persevere in the use oi
them, with an equal certainty of being cured.

These Pills are no longer, if they ever were,
among those of doubtful utility. They havepassed
away from those that are daily launched upon the
tide of experiment, and now stand before the pub-
lic as high in reputation, and extensively employed
in all paits of the United States, the Canadas, and
T4,xas, as any medicine ever prepared for the relief
of -..i. i io,.- mnian. They have been extensively
prescribed by the Medical Faculty wherever they
have been introduced; and there are but few towns
that cannot produce some remarkable cases ofI
their curative effects. The numerous certificates
which have been presented to the proprietor from
professional men and others, evince in an extraor-
dinary manner the extensive applicability of this
remedy to diseases generally. Professional men,
and those of sedentary habits, loudly applaud
hygiene properties in obviating those evils incident
to their occupation, and the want of exercise.
Often have the cures performed by this medicine
been Ihe subject of editorial comment in various
newspapers and journals, and it may with truth be
asserted that no medicine of ihe kind has ever re-
ceived testimrnonials of greater commendation than
are attached to this.
They are in general use as a family medrcitie,
and there are thousands of families who declare
they are never satisfied unless they have a supply
always on hand. They .have no rival in curing
bilious diseases, dyspepsia, liver complaints, sick
headache, aundice, rheumatism, heartburn, acid
stomach, palpitation, loss of appetite, costive-
ness, &c.
Taken either a short time before or after expo-
sure, they reader the system less liable to contract
contagious or epidemic diseases, and should be re-
sorted to by persons residing in low and marshy
situations, or when travelling or exposed to conta-
gion; also, persons attending the sick, who, by long
watching and fatigue, or exposure to the effluvia
of the sick room, become debilitated and lose their
appetite, will find great assistance from these pills,
in renovating and purifying the system, and restor-
ing the functions to a healthy s'ate. Persons
debilitated by intense and long application to busi-
ness and study, and those also oh sedentary habit%,
will derive great benefit from an occasional use of
Those who, from idiosycrancy of the constitution,
or from a previous injudicious use of Calomel, are
prevented from using that remedy, will find in these
Pills a vegetable substitute, which in most cases
will produce the desirable effects of that mineral,
without its deleterious consequences.
For that congested and deranged state of the sys-
tem which occurs in the winter and commence-
ment of spring, these Pills are particularly appli-
cable in preventing rheumatism, coughs, congestion
of the lungs, &c. and have prolonged many a life
that otherwise would have been a sacrifice to the

changes of the season.
Those persons liable to sore throat, swelling of
the glands, coughs, and other symptoms indicating
scrofula, or consumption, should take warning in
season, and embrace a remedy which, while it is
searching out and eradicating disease, makes no
deductions from the vital powers of the system.
Recommendations from physicians in every va-
riety of climate in the United States, Texas, and
the Canadas, bear witness to the peculiar and po-
tent effects of this medicine; in fact they are pre-
scribed by physicians generally, in preference to any
other cathartic and alterative medicine-and hav-
ing acquire, d an unprecedented celebrity as an
MEDY; and this reputation being fully sustained
by the high character of its testimonials, and the
increasing demand for the medicine-it is only ne-

tional Education, Temperance, General Politics,
Silk and Sugar Beet Culture, with a miscellaneous
synopsis of National History, Geography, Popu
lar Chemistry, Domestic Economy, and House-

Impressed with a sense of the paramount impor-
tance, in an individual and national point of view,
of Agricultural pursuits, it will be a great object to
condense into this department of the Library, such
information as will aid the tiller of the soil in se-
curing from his land the greatest amount of its an-
nual productions, without impairing its quality.
The best agriculturists, both at home and abroad,
have been consulted, and practical advice, recipe",
useful directions, hints and general information de-
rived upon the nature, treatment, and improvement
of various soils; the choice, management, &c. of

In this department will be condensed th- best
medical experience, in the preparing of which none
but the highest authority has been consulted. Plain
familiar directions will be given for most cases of
sudden emergency, as drowning, poisoning, wounds,
fits, and the various casualties to which the human
frame is daily liable. To every faiiii, the advice
here given may be at times of importance,
while in cases where a physician may riot be at
hand, it may be the positive means of alleviating
distress and prolonging life. A large portion of this
department will be derived from the combined la-
bors of an Association of Physicians, while the en-
tire work will be submitted to the examination of
several of the most experienced Professors in Jef-
ferson C..-,. .di in the University of Pennsylva-
nia. The object principally to be considered being
that while the cure of disease is doubtless a matter
of great importance, the PRESERVATION of
health is still greater.
Among the subjects embraced under this head
wi I be the duties of parents, the government and
discipline o! schools, the best methods of imparting
instruction, the evils arising from ignorance in a
Republic, and the advantages of knowledge, with
other pertinent matters, designed to impress upon
the nation the importance of the truth that "the
knowledge which invigorates virtue, and renders it
more surely useful, is the greatest object which be-
nevolenace can have in view," or that patriotism
can accomplish.

mendatory appeal to the Young muten of the Unit,.d
States, signed by Ex-President Madison, Ex-PresI J. QL. Adams, and Ex-President Jackson, to
gether with other matters of interest connected
with this subject.
In this division will be presented the Constitu-
tion of the United States, with the amendments;
also the population of the several States, chief
towns, with other statistical and miscellaneous in-
formation, corrected from the census of the United
States for 1840,condensed and revised from official
documents at Washington.

It will receive such additions as the more
recent experience in this country may render neces-
sary, and will be revised expressly for this work by
he author.
Ample instructions will be furnished for cultivat-
ing the sugar beet, and the process of manufacture
fully explained.
Under this head will be given a mass of valua
ble and useful information, in a plain, concise form
upon each of the following subjects, viz: D-ntistry,
with the best mode of cleansing and preserving the
teeth in a sound and healthy condition. Popular
Chemistry, for practical purposes. The Cultiva-
tion of Flowers. A brief compendium of Nalu-
ral History, Geography, &c. Housewifery, em-
bracing a large number of plain, useful recipes for
cooking, preserving, cleaning, and other matters re-
lating to household economy and domestic comtfrt.
The Pocket Library will be printed with clear,
di-.tinct, and beautiful pearl and nonpareil type,
cast expressly for the occasion. The paper used
will be made for this work, and will be of the finest
and strongest texture.
The whole is the result of more than six years'
reflection and perseverir-g research. It has been
condensed with great care from authentic sources.
Every department of the work will be submitted to
the severest scrutiny, in order to ensure the greatest
possible accuracy, and warrant the most entire
public confidence.
The work will not be ready for the press much
before the ensuing spring. The announcement is
made thus early in order that those who may pos-
sess information of a really useful and valuable
character, which, from philanthropic, patriotic, or
other motives, they would like to see circulated
throughout the country in an extensive and perma-
nent manner, may communicate with the publish-
er. The extraordinary character of ihe work, its
cheapness, sterling merit, and universal utility, to-
gether with the extensive arrangements making for
agencies throughout the United States, warrant the
determination of printing an edition of not less
than one hundred thousand copies. All communi-

rot perhaps be aware that the origin of Moffat's
Lute Medicines was the result of a protracted and
painful illness of their originator, Mr. JOHN MoP-
FAT. When taken ill, Mr. M. was a prosperous
and flourishing merchant in the lower part ot the
city; and, having consulted and employed a number
of our n,,..t -Rkitul physicians, he, after months of
uir.rti,., was prevailed upon to purchase the recipe
of the invaluable vegetable preparation now of-
fered to the public.
The effect of the Life Medicines in his own case
was so singular and remarkable that he immnedi
ately determined to offer to the world a medicine to
which he not only owed his life, but his happiness.
The uniform success which has since attended their
administration, in every instance where a fair trial
has been given them, has been attested by thou-
sands, and inconit, siitly proves their intrinsic merit;
These medicines are indebted for their name to
their manifest and sensible action in purifying the
spring and channels of life, and enduing them with
renewed tone and vigor, and to the undoubted fact
that, at a very early period in their history, they had
rescued sufferers from the very verge of an unatimunely
grave, alter all the deceptive nostrums of the day,
prescribed by physicians, had utterly failed, in
which case., they rfso permanently secure-! that
uniform enjoyment of health, without which life it-
self is but a partial blessing. So great, indeed,
had their efficacy invariably proved, that it was
scarcely less than miraculous to those who were
unacquainted with the beautifully philosophical
principles upon which they were compounded, and
upon which they consequently act.
THE PHOENIX BITTERS are so called, be-
cause they possess the power of restoring the ex-
piring embers of health, to a glowing ;P
throughout the constitution, as the Phesnix is said
to be restored to life from the ashes of its own dis-
solution. The Phoenix Bitters are entirely ve-
getable, composed of roots found only in cei-
tain parts of the Western country, which will
infallibly cure FEVERS AND AGUES of
all kinds; will never fail to eradicate entirely
all the effects cf mercury, infinitely sooner than
the most powerful preparations vof Sarsapirilla,
and will immediately cure the determination
of blood to the head; never fail in the sickrce s in-
cident to young females; and will be fi.und a cer-
tain remedy in all cases of nervous debility and
weakness of the most impaired constitutions. As
a remedy for Chronic and Inflammatory Rheuma-
tism, the efficacy of the Phoenix Bitters will be de-
monstnated by the use of a single bottle.
The proprietor rejoices in the opportunity af-
forded by the universal diffusion of the pres-, for
within the knowledge and reach of every indi-
vidual in the community. Unlike the host of per-
nicious quackeries which boast of vegetable ingre-
dients, the Life Pills are purely and solely vegeta.
ble, and contain neither mercury, antimony,
arsenic, nor any other mineral, in any form what-
ever. They are entirely composed of extracts
from rare and powerful plants, the virtues of
which, though losg known to several Indian tribes,
and recently to some eminent pharmaceutical
chemists, are air. vtriher unknown to the ignorant
pretenders to medical science, and were never be-
fore administered in so happily efficacious a com-
Their first operation is to loosen from the coats
of the stomach and bowels, the various impurities
and crudities constantly .ieie around them; and
to remove the hardened Lances which collect in the
convolutions of the small intestines. Other medi-
cines only partially cleanse these, and leave such
collected masses behind as to produce habitual cos-
tiveness, with all its train of evils, or sudden
diarrhea, with its imminent dangers. This fact is
well known to all regular anatomists, who examine
the human bowels alter death, and hence the preju-
dice of the e well informed men against the quack
medicines of the age. The second effect of the VE-
GETABLE LIFE PILLS is to cleanse the kidneys
and the bladder, and by this means, the liver and
the lungs, the healthful action of which entirely de-
pend, upm the irgiulati'y of the urinary or-
gans. T.-e L!,-l which lal its tred clier from
ihe agency of tie liver an i i. ,o., belote it pa'-
ses into the heart, being thus purw.J by them, and
nourished by food coming from a clean stomach,
courses freely through the veins, renews every part
of the system, and triumphantly mounts the ban-
ner of health in the blooming cheek.
The f.-tl-.i it' are among the distressing variety
of human diseases to which the celebrated Vegeta-
ble Life Pills are known to be infallible.
DYSPEPSIA, by thoroughly cleansing the first
and second stomach, ant ,creating a flow of pure
anI healthy bile, rmsead of the .-taic and acrid
kind-Flatulency, Palpitation if the Heart, Los,
of Appetite, Heart-burn and Headache, Restless-
ness, Ill-temper, Anxiety, Langour, and Melan-
choly, which are the general symptoms of Dys-
pepsia, will vanish a. a natural consequence of its
cure. Costiveness, by ,cleansing the whole
length (.f the intestines without a violent po*
cess: all violent purges leave the bowels cos-
tive within two days. Diarrhea and Cho-
lera, by removing the sharp acrid fluids by
which these comipainims are occasioned, and
by promoting the lubricative secretions of the
mucous membrane. Fevers of all kinds, by restor-
ing the blood to a regular circulation through the
process of perspiration in some cases, and the tho-
rough solution of all intestinal obstructions in
others The Lite Medicines have been known to
cure Rheumatism permanently in three weeks,
and Gout in half that time, by removing local in-
fliininmation from the muscles and ligaments of the
joints. Dropsies of all kinds, by freeing and
I, *ehci,-ii., 'hi. kidneys and bladder; they ope-
il i1o i1-l .ie.,tihiilvy on those important organs,
and hence have ever been found a certain remedy
for the worst cases of Gravel. Also Worms, by
disl< dging from the turnings of the bowels the slimy
matter to which these creatures adhere; Asthma and
Consumption, by relieving the air vessels of the
lungs from the mucous, which even slight colds will
occasion, which if not removed becomes hardened,
and produces those dreadful diseases. Scurvy,
ulcers, and Inveterate Sores, by the perfect purity
which these Life Pills give to the blood, and the
rumors; Scorbutic Eruptions and Bad Complexions,
by their alterative effect .upon the fluids that feed
the skin, the morbid state of which occasions all
Eruptive complaints, Sallow, Cloudy, and other
disagreeable Complexions. The use of these Pills
for a very short time, will effect as entire cure of
Salt Rheum, Er. jia. and a striking improve-
ment in the clearness of the skin Common Colds
and Influenza will always be cured by one dose,
or by twc, even in the worst cases. Piles-as a
remedy for this most distressing and obstinate ma-
lady, the Vegetable Life Pills deserve a distinct
and emphatic recommendation. It is well known
to hundreds in this city, that the originator of
these invaluable Pills was himself afflicted with
this complaint for upwards of thirty-five years,
and that he tried in vain every remedy prescribed
within the whole compass of the Materia Medica.
He, however, at length, tried the medicine which
he now offers to the public, and he was cured in a
very short time, after his recovery had been pro-
nounced not only improbable, but absolutely impos-
sible, by an human means.
All that Mr. Moffat requires of his patients is to
be particular in taking the life medicines strictly
according to the directions. It is not by a news-
paper notice, or by any thing that he himself may

say in their favor, that he hopes to gain credit. It
is alone by the results of a fair trial.
ADVICE TO FEMALES.-Femalcs who value
good health should never be without the life Me-
dicines, as they purify the blood, remove obstruc-
tions, and give the skin a beautiful, clear, healthy,
and blooming appearance.
plethoric habit, who are subject to fits, headache,
giddiness, dimness of sight, or drowsiness, from too
great a flow of blood to the head, should take it
frequently. Children and persons of all ages, may
take them at any time, as they do not contain mer-
cury, or any ingredient that requires confinement
or resiriction of diet.
aged individuals, who know the value of Moffat's

The extraordinary success which attended
the "MAGICIAN" during the recent Presidential
campaign, has influenced thesubscribers to propose
a similar publication during the approaching Gu-
bernatorial contest, to be entitled THE YEOMAN.
The 1st No. will be issued on the FOURTH OF
MARCH next-giving the proceedings of the De-
mociatic State Convention, and will appear every
Thursday morning thereafter, to the close of the
The approaching struggle for the Chief Magis-
tracy of Pennsylvania will unquestionably once
more fiercely arouse the conflicting elements of the
two great rival parties-Democratic and Federal.
The former, seeing nothing in recent results to in-
duce doubt of the intrinsic propriety of its mea-
sures, will leave not a stone unturned to regain
power, where it has been lost, and preserve it,
where it remains. The latter, emboldened by suc-
cess in the National Goverament, will extend its
Argus eyes into other quarters for objects of con-
quest; and endeavor to wrest from the Democracy
the ascendancy, which it yet fortunately retains in
many of the States. Having, by the unscrupulous
use of the "pipe laing" system, unexpectedly suc-
ceeded in storming the CITADEL of freedom,
their next object will be to secure the OUT-POSTS
of power, and thus perpetuate Federal dominion
in the country, and all its parts. Insatiate as the
horse-leech in their thirst for emolument and pow-
er, they will riot rest satisfied with the "loaves and
fishes," distributed from the bounteous table of the
White House," but are already seen seizing with
the avidity of half-famished vultures upon the
"spoils" in the respective States. Not content with
the power of consummating their anti-republican
schemes in the council-chambers at Washington,
the different members of the Confederacy are each
to be subjugated in turn, and made, nolens volenis, to
"bend the knee to Baal." .The Executive chair of
Pennsylvania will constitute a prize of paramount
importance; and already is the enemy marshalling
its; forces to displace the. present faithful and en-
lightened incumbent. However eminent his ser-
vices-however irreproachable his life-however
sagacious and patriotic his policy-he must be
marked for ostracism, because he is a Demobrat!
"C.iESAR OR NOTHING" is inscribed upon the
Federal banner.
These hostile demonstrations must be met by a
corresponding energy and activity on our part.
The Sampson of Democracy must not lie down in
supineness, and permit the Delilah of Federalism
to shear him of his strength, without an effort to
preerve it! The flag of -'ennsylvania must not
be struck! No, NEVER! The 4th of March
convention, it is well ascertained, will nominate by
re-election. Eminently does he deserve it at the
hands of the people! Gloriously has he realized
the ardent expectations of his friends! It was he,
emphatically he, who in the darkest hour of peril
SAVED THE REPUBLIC! His talismanic
touch restored the decayed remnant of public credit
to life and animation His prudent counsels-his
dignified and statesmanlike policy, saved the ship
of State from being sunk into the vortex which at
one time threatened to engulf her! He bade the
tempestuous billows, menacing devolution and de-
struction, "be still," and they were calm! With
such a flag-bearer, leading the Democratic clans
into the field of battle, VICTORY must and will
perch upon our banner! At the rally of his name,
thousands of true-hearted Pennsylvanians will
again, wish sinewy arms and bold and buoyant
hearts, lift aloft the flag of ancient Democracy,
and under its gorgeous folds redeem their Common-
wealth Irom the disgrace of October last. What a
noble wreath will entwine the brow of the venera-
ble "KEYSTONE OF THE ARCH," when SHE will be
found TotE FIRST to cleanse and purify her po-
i tlical escutcheon, and return to her 'fiist love!"
Then, as in '98, when the country was writing in
the anaconda folds of the "Reign of Terror," she
will lead the van in redeeming her from Federal
profanation! Then her voice will again constitute
the Shiboleth of the Republican faith, the "pillar
of fire by night and the cloud by day," and be ho-
nored and respected in the land. Then, too, the
vile heresies of the Federalists-a National Bank,
a national system of internal improvements-the
suspension of specie payments-ithe assumption of
the State debts-all so eminently at war with sound
policy and a strict construction of the Cinsittution
-will be stamped with the "broad seal" of public
It is to assist, to the extent of its feeble abilities,
in the achievement of this. political triumph in the
Keystone, that the "YEOMAN" is proposed to be
started. Its objects will be:
To examine and declare the cardinal points in
the Democratic creed, and defend from unmerited
obloquy the men selected to enforce them.
To trace Federalism fairly, but faithfully, through
the labyrinth of falsehood, cunning, and FRAUD,
which it invariably pursues.
To exchange signals with fellow-laborers in other
sections of the Stateand advocate "UNION AND
HARMONY" in the Democratic ranks.
To penetrate, if it can be done, by its extreme
cheapness, the remotest habitations, and rouse the
Republicans every where to action, ACTION, AC-
To furnish, in a succession of numbers, a faith
ful and authentic account of the ever memorable
BUCKSHOT WAR, and the unpublished pro-
ceedings of the COMMITTEE OF SAFETY,
which has long been a desideratum in the political
