Gen. Jackson's "Force Bill."
The Philadelphia Pres, in a defence of
the position assumed by air. Douglas in
his answers to the Norfolk questions of
Mr. Lamb, the Breckinridge elector, rrP
calls to public attention the attitude which
vu uanmed by tfce General Government
when South Carolina, by her celebrated
ordiauce of 1832. declared the Federal
revenae lawp, within the limits of that
Stat, to be absolutely "null .and void."
Gen. Jackson, who was than President,
promptly met the issue tendered by the re
volted State in .his proclamation of De
cember 10th, and en the 16th January,
1833, hs communicated to Congress the
attitude, of South Carolina, and invoked
the Representatives of the people, to pro
claim "that the Constitution and the
Laws are Supreme and the Union indis
soluble." Congress promptly co opera-,
tsd with the President and passed "an
act farther to provide for the collection
of duties on imports," which was ap
proved March 3. 1833. The following
are sections of that act :
Sic. 51 ' And be it furthtr tnacttd.

thereof, or any process from the
courts of the United States, is obatrnc

. It will hero be seen that 2Sr. Dpngfas
hadthe strongest precedents'' for, his re;
plies'5to'the"Norf61r: questions, and that
Mr. Breckinridge might have responded
as promptly, 'had. he regarded himself as
an old Jackson Democrat," instead of the
candidate and. favorite of those" who hold
principles.'identical with the Sonth Car
olina"1 ordinance. It is noticeable thai
during the year when .South Carolina
had Tebellearagainst the Union, the Con
stitntiorT And the, enforcement of the laws,
she'Had refused her electoral vote to Jack
son, then in the zenith of his popularity;
and to" Van B'nren, then the 'darling
"coming man" of the Democracy, "the
Northern man with Southern principles, ''
and that her Legul.nt lira gave the vote'of
the State to Floyd for President, and
Hen'ry'Lee for Vice President. This ex
plains why South Carolina is 'the only
State in the South where John Bell and
Edward 'Everett are not zealously sup
ported, for both these distinguished states
men were in'Congress when Gen. Jack
son asked it to proclaim the supremacy
of the laws, and that the Union was in
dissoluble, and both'recorded their votes to
euitain the President. And perhaps this
may be a key to explain why the peculi
ar organs of Mr. Breckinridge are so
unjust to the' noble Tennesseean John
Bell, who gave his'aid, with James Knox
Polkvto Andrew Jackson, as to denounce
him an "atraitor," and nnrit to assume
the duties of the Presidency. The heart
of the monster of Disunion lies iff Sonth
Carolina, and wherever its pulsations ex
tend, the, vitality is derived from the
sme rebel State which, in 1832. an
nounced doctrines that General Jackson
declared were "utterly repngnant both to
the principles upon which the General
Government is constituted, and to the
obiects which it was expressly formed to
attain. South Carolina repeats those
doctiines now,. and John Bell and Ed
ward Everett, are now aa they were
twenty-eight years, ago, uncompromi-
flinclr onnnsed to them. We have a
right to conclude, then, when the Cour
ier, in the interests of John C. Breckin
ridge, denounces John Bell as a traitor,
that it refers to hie firm refusal .to lend
aid and comfort to the enemies of lbs
United Stales or, in other words, that
he is a traitor to the Secessionists who

bia health seemed rather to improve
than to be impaired, and he often' spoke
in the most gratified manner of the re
sults of the excursion. "I fuel younger
than a year ago," and "My health never
was so good," were common remarks
About four weeks ago he got up one
morning as usual, and was pouring some
hot water fro til; a tea kettle to w'ash with,
when his son's wife observed bis! hand to
tremble, and beiwas, noticed to.tnm pale,
as if about to faint. Mrs. Farnham took
hold of the kettle, and, as he seemed to
grow more faint, finally assisted him to
lie down. He lay some time, but finally
got np to eat some breakfast: It wag
noticed that histappetite was not so good
as usual, and he seemed to act as if some
thing was choking ' him.' He ' remained
in this condition annmber of days; but
finally improved and was again quite
well. After this he often brought in his'
own wood aa usuall and continued in ex
cellent health until last 'Saturday, when
he was again slightly ill."
HIS LAST CONVERSATIONS.
On Tuesday afternoon, while his son's
wife was with him, he aslced : "Ain't

conversing with. his grandson on the sub
ject of the troubles atjtbe Sontb.i His
language on this occasion, as, nearly as
can be recollected. was as .follows : "I

right in the end, and that the Union will
not be broken up. I may not live to, see
the difficulties all settled, but they will
be. I hope, and wish the oountry well.

Diphtheria, its Symptoms and Cure. 0
Except in tho malignant form; diphthej
ritis is insidious in its invasion. The
outset of the attack is generally marked
by slight fever, but not invariably. In
the commonest form, in pseudo-membraneous
pharyngitis, some discomfort. is
the. fauces is usually complained of early,
with, perhaps, some difficulty of swsllpw
ing. and tho clan'dsr"of the angle, of the
jaw are commonly swollen: There is
slight thirst, loss of appetite," otun bead-
ache, sometimes shivering, and a sense of
prostration. From twelve to thirty-six
hours after the invasion of the disease,
there is found, on examination, common
ly on the tonsil, spots or patches of whi
tish or opaline exudation, like coagula
ted mucus. These speedily coalesce, and
may spread .over tho entire fauces, snd
palate, or invade the -windpipe. If the
disease, is not arrested, the plastic deposit
becomes, thick and, leathery, yellowish or
ash-colored. . The surrounding mucus
surface is red and swollen. The disease
in the milder cases yields readily to prop
er treatment, .which consists in modifying
the mncuous sdrfsces .by thearplicatioB
of astringent solutions,"., in the employ
ment of potash ana tonics, tne very spar
ing use of evacuants, and attention .to hy
gienic preeautiohs. In the more dsagsr
ons form of psendo membraneous laryn
gitis, the precursory symptoms are iden
tical, but hoarseness, cough, ana tender
ness on piessure' upon" "the" windpipe,"
promptly supervene, and the febrile move

in New York. Clorate of potash and
diluted muriatic acid are very generally
approvedrbf. From the latest accounts
of Parisian practice, as compiled by
Loiseau.-.jt- appears that nourishment
and chlorate of potash are there chiefly
depended on except when surgical inter
ference is requisite. w'In New'-Torkf qui
nine, has been much need, with' what ben
efit we are not informed; Calonlel,
whichwas formerly the great remedy,
under the supposition that the' "effusion
was "a fibrinious deposit by' mercurials
being weU established, has now fallen in
to comparative disuse. A few "practi
tioners persist, in , cinnabar 'fumigations
and.mercurial inunetipns, and,, calomel,
bat the general sense of ihe 'profession is
opposed (o the employment of any debil
itating measures. The local treatment
consists.in.tbeapplication of the vapor
of hot water, of astringent gargles and
the caustics. The aqueous vapor which
facilitates the detachment of the false
membranes and soothes the surroanding
parts, washes of solutioa-.of -'chlorate' 'of
potash, and caustio solution of nitrate of
silver, are tne particular remedies wbicn
seem to" have the highest testinionisls in

WHOLE NUMBER, J8;
King Jonathan the First,
f A Yankee is emphatically a civilman.
though his civility may not produce all
the bows, and grimaces, and unmeaning
compliments which accompany or const!:
tuts that quality among French'; rude"
ness of manners could be charged against
these people only, by these who know
Goldsmith, "wesf very different sppesr
ancos'to persons in fiirfercnt circumstan
ces. A person who is whirled throngh
Europe in a post-chaise, and a pilgrim
who, walk the grand tour on foot, will
form very different conclusions," Now,,
sundry people have been whirled from
Boston to New York in a mail-coach,
and said I know not what abont man-'
ners. I have traveled over the New
England, States on foot over highways
and byways ; supped in. the roost splen
did hotels and the most paltry inns,' en
tered every farmer's door that offered as
a resting place, and crossed any man's
garden, or corn field, or orchard that lay
in my way, without receiving an uncivil
word on my wbole ronte. On one oc
casion I lost myself in tho woods among
the Green Mountains of Vermont, where
I imagined there was no living creators
to he encountered for miles, except black
bears, catamounts, and similar country
gentlemen ; but on a sudden I emerged
from tbe woods into an open spot where
stood a log hut. A little flaxen head ur
chin espied me coming, and began to
scramble with all speed to hide him-,
self, as I supposed ; but no it was to
gain the summit of an immense log of
wood, which lay by the little pathway,
where he greeted me, as I passed, with
as profound a bow as I ever received.
In traveling over the kingdom of Na
ples, and contemplating the wonders of
the favored land, its fertile soil, its geni
al climate, its admirable capacities for
commerce, and the sloth and ignorance
of its population, its beggars, and its
brigands I have been struck with tho
whimsical. imagination of the scene that
might ensue, were a plain Yankee taken
from his plow tail and placed on the
throne of the Two Scicilies. His majes
ty would begin a regular overhaul of the
whole body politic tbe morning after his
coronation. "What's this I see ?" says
the king. "Whero are your overseers of
the highways your committee T What
idle fellows are these in tho streets ?
What are these bells ringing for every
day ? What means this crowd of ships
lying behind the mole with nothing to
do ? or this marina, the water's edge of
my great city, where I see no piles ef
merchandise, no trucks nor, dray-carts
driving abont with goods f Come, bus
tle, occupy ; set the lasxaaroni to work
upon the roads ; send the children to
school ; make a railroad hare and a turn
pike there ; bridge this river, and canal
that; hang the Calabrian robbers; give
the monks a ronse ; go into the churches
and strip me those trumpery' shrines :
sell the gold and silver jewels tvith which
they are hesped, and the interests of the
money will support all the poor in the
kingdom, for 1 11 have no , beggars nor
idlers while my title is Jonathan the,
First. People shall mind their business,
for Twill "" abolish these festas, which
come every other day, and are. good for
nothing but to. promote idleness.- Hence
forth there shall be no festas, but Thanks
