Awake! ye Sons of Temperance,
And nobly take your aland,
Beside your ambling fountain,
A firm cold waler band;
Awake! our star lit banner
Is waving in the sky,
Around its standard rally,
For "onward" is the cry.
King Alchohol advancing,
Destruction scatters wide,
The land he fills with madness,
Dark woes with him abide;
Then forward to llio rescue,
And save poor fallen man;
Unlock the drunkard's fetters,
Make happy homes again.
We come, no band of warriors,
With bayonet and spear,
No glittering sword or cannon,
No waving plume is here.
We come a temperance army,
Commissioned from above,
Our only weapon, kindness,
Our watchwords, truth and love.
Our Washingtonian brethren
Are treading every shore,
With joy they heal the wounded,
The dead to life restore,
Then let our cry be onward,
As here we take our stand,
Beside the sparkling fountain,
A firm cold water band.
U. S. Senate, Monday, Jan. 31.
The Vice President laid before the Sen
ate a messago from the President of the
United Slates, transmitted in compliance
with a resolution of the 20ih January, ask
ing whether the general order No. 370 was
issued under instructions from the War De
The Secretary of war savs that "no
particular instructions have been given to
Gen. Scott for issuing the order referred to,
but it is presumed that he has taken that
step in consequence of the general instruc
tions given to him on the subject of levying
contributions, and of making the resources
of the enemy's country avuilable as far as
may be within the rules of civilized war
fare, for the maintenance of our troops in
Mexico, and defraying the expences inci
dent to tho'present state of hostilities."
The Secretary gives an extract from
Gen. Scott's despatch dated 18th Septem
ber, 1847, wherein the Commanding Gen
eral submits certain suggestions to the
Government, which are in effect as follows:
Premising that he has no official informa
tion as to the number of troops ordered since
the march of Gen. Pierce's detachment,
but assuming the force en route at 0,500,
and that 4,000 more are soon to follow, the
General-in-chief stales that he can hold the
capito), garrisoned by 7,500 men, against
anvextcrnal attack or combined with an
internal insurrection, and have n ample
surplus force to occupy Puebla, Perotc.Jal
apa, the National Bridge, the Paso do Obc
jas, Santa Fe. and Vera Cruz.
As a modification of this plan, it is added
that, with a total of 30,000, the principal
mining district of the country may also be
occupied, and a secure transit given to gold
and silver bullion, which, paying the custo
mary duties, would cover a considerable
paitof the expences of occupation.
Gen. Scott further suggests that, to aug
ment ihe army to 50,000, would enable it
to occupy all the State capitols and princi
pal cities, to drive guerrillas and robbing
parties from the great highways of trade,
to seize into our hands all the revenues of
the country, and to keep the Central Gov
ernment in constant motion and alarm until
constrained to sue for peace.
To withdraw the army from the interior
of the country, and occupy the strong
points within the boundaries which the U.
States intend to hold permanently, and in
ihe act of retiring, to blow up the citadel
in the capitol, the fortresses of Chapultepec,
Pcrote, San Juan de Ulua, and the walls of
Vera Cruz, (unless it be preferred to garri
son the last two) destroy all iron guns cap
lured and carry off all made of brass, with
all ordnance stores of value (tho only can
non foundry in the republic we have already
destroyed.) and a strict blockade of the
posts not garrisoned by our troops, would
of course be essential in the conquest of a

Senate a communication from the Secretary
of War, in answer to a resolution of the
24lh instant, calling for copies of letters,
reports, and other communications referred
to in the letter of General Taylor, dated at
New Orleans, 20th July, 1845. This com
munication gives n number of letters ad
dressed by Gen. Taylor to the Adjutant
General, some of which are headed confi
dential. Also, a message from the President of
the United States, communicating a report
of the Directors of the Mint, showing the
operation of the Mint and branches during
the year 1847. From this document it ap
pears thai there have been deposited during
the year 1847, at the Mint and its branches
$23,008,003 in gold and silver, while there
has been coined during tho same period in
gold, $20,221,385; in silver, $2,374,450; to
tal of gold, silver and copper coin, $'22,057,
memorials and petitions.
The following memorials and petitions
were presented and appropriately referred:
By Mr. Atchison: Several memorials
from the General Assembly of Missouri ask
ing donations of the public lands for the
improvement of the Osage river, and for
the organization of a territory west of the
Missouri. Thsi memorial states that the
territory lying west of the State of Mis
souri, extending from the territory occupied
by the Chcrokees to the northern line of
tho State, and west to the Plains, is now
occupied by some 30,000 Indians. If or
ganized into a Territory, and opened to set
tlement by the white man, it would in five
years rank in wealth and population among
the first States in the Union. In one coun
ty in the Platte purchase, organized in 1830
with not more than twenty miles square in
its limits, there is now a population of fif
teen thousand. How much more is that
country worth to the Union than the en
tire territories occupied by tho Indians?
Also asking that provision may be made to
pay volunteers full pay as mounted men,
during their term of service, and if they
had the misfortuno to lose their horses, also
pay for the horses thus lost, as it was caused
principally by the lack of forage, wnich
should have been furnished by Govern
ment. Asking that the small claims to
lands derived from the French and Spanish
governments may be confirmed, and the
final adjustment of all provided for. Ask
ing Congress to donate to Missouri certain
public lands for purposes of internal im
provement. Also, joint resolutions of the Legislature
of Missouri, against the repeal of tho tariff
ot 1840, and the repeal ot the bub-treasury
Also, joint resolution of the same, re
questing their Representatives to vote in
accordance with the 8th section of tho net
of Congress "to authorize the people of Mis
souri to form a constitution, and State Gov
ernment, and for the admission of such
State into the Union on an equal footing
with the original States, and to prohibit
slavery in certain territories.
By Mr. Benton: From John Baldwin,
asking that the United Slates will pav such
portions of the award made in his favor
by the Mexican Commission as have not
Mr. 15. explained the ob ect of Ihe mem
orialist, stating the grounds on which he
sought redress; one of which was that un
der the treaty ot 1813, certain revenues
were set apart by Mexico for the payment
of her indebtedness to the United Slates,
which revenues had been seized upon by
the order of the United States Governmeni,
and were now collected by the military and
naval forces of the natmn.J

PREAMBLE AND RESOLUTIONS
OF THE WHIGS OF COOPER.
Whereas, The recommendation of Ihe
Slate Central Commitlce of tho Whig Par
ty, that a Convention should be held in this
city, on the first Monday in April next, for
the purpose of nominating candidates for
Governor, Lieut. Governor and Electors of
President and Vice President for the State,
has received a heartv response from a large
number of counties, in the appointment of
Delegates lo the Convention, and in the ex
pression of an earnest desire for a more
thorough and complete organization of the
party, that the principles it maintains and
the policy it would pursue, may be secured
to the people in the administration of the
Nrtional and Slate Governments; and
whereas, the selection of our city as the
place for holding the Convention meets our
most cordial opprobation,
1st, Resolved, That we lender to the Del
egates of the Convention a hearty welcome
to our city, and hereby extend to them a
cordial invitation to tho hospitalities of our
2d, Resolved, That for tho purpose of
securing a thorough organization and con
cert of action in the approaching elections
in August nnd November next, we deem it
highly important and necessary that every
county in the Stale should be represented
in the Convention, and we do earnestly in
voke the early action of our friends in
every county from which delegates have
not been appointed.
3d, Resolved, That the present momen
tous and alarming crisis in die affairs of
our National Government, induced by the
unwise, impolitic and unconstitutional exer
cise of power by tho present Executive in
the commencement of the existing and un
necessary war with Mexico, should awaken
every citizen and patriot, to tho dangprs
which threaten us, and demands from the
representatives of the people in Congress,
the utmost vigilance and most efficient
measures for tho prevention of the incalcu
lable evils which would result to our coun
try from the consummation of the purposes
ot the Executive in the subjugation of Mexico.
4th, Resolved, That in the exercise of the
high and important trust devolved upon the
President by the Constitution, as comman
der-in-chief of our army in the prosecution
of the war with Mexico, much of the best
blood of our gallant officers and soldiers,
and much of the public treasure might have
been saved to the country by the prompt
and energetic use of the means placed
within his power, for reinforcements, pro
visions, and munitions of war.
Hth, Resolved, That while we believe the
existing war was unnecessarily brought
upon us by the President, we believe u to
bo the duly of Congress to make such ap
propriations as may be necessary for the
support, comfort, nnd safely of our army in
uiu eiiuiiiv s country, ana 10 aevise sucu
measures as will speedily and honorably
terminate existing difficulties.
Glh, Resolved, That the victories achiev
ed by our armies under Generals Scott and
1 aylor, have shed an unfading lustre upon
their names, and that under Providence
they have been won by the skill and cour
age ot those gallant leaders and their hero
ic officers and men, and in spite of the cul
pable neglect of the administration.
till, lxcsolved, J. hat it is characteristic
of the American people to cherish the repu

with generous gratitude ihe gallant soldier
who has perilled his life in defence of his
country, and that they view with scorn and
indignaiion tho weak ami wicked attempt
of the Government at Washington to tar

his predecessors, paralize nnd render nuga

those lasting benefits which wise legislation,
upon the subject of the inlrrnal improve

commerce would secure to the whole coun

cultural and mineral resources of our State,
Missouri might long since have taken her
stand in the very front lank of Southern
and Wastern States; but, under the blight
ing influence of pnrtizan leaders, who have
only looked to their own elevation and se
curity in place and power, her resources
remain undeveloped, her rivers unimproved
and her trade and commerce deprived of
oilier facilities than those secured by the
energy and enterprise of her people, while
ihey are taxed with a Stale debt of near
one million of dollars, no part of which has
been appropriated or expended for the in
ternal improvement of their State or the
education of their children.
10.'(, Resolved, That the history of the
legislation of our State under the present
party in power, teaches us that there is no
hope of improvement or rapid advancement
in wealth and general prosperity but in a
change of rulers, and of the principles and
policy ' hitherto pursued in the adminis
tration of the affairs of State; nnd that we
earnestly invoke the renewed and untiring
efforts of our Whig friends to bring about
so happy a result.
11, Resolved, That in our follow citi
zen, James S. Rollins, of Boone county, we
recognize a firm and zealous Whig, a man
of unblemished integrity and commanding
talents and character, and that wo hearti

of Boone and other connties in proposing
him for the consideration of the Conven

12, Resolved, That wo ur.ie with our
Whig friends elsewhere, in respect and ad

Cape Girardeau county, and heartily re
commend him to the Convention as a can

'1 he wavy line which pursued the waist to its ter

called Princess dresses, and they are a revival of

the sex. Nothing could well be moie at war with
the principles of true art, than the sort of ledge
or their of gatherings which make of a woman's
figure, the effect of a cup set in a petticoated

Husbands and Wives. A lady writer in
ihe N. York Episcopal Recorder vindicates
her sex with great spirit from certain ill-natured
slanders, that crusty old bachelors
and disappoined husbands are in the habit
of uttering. Sho takes occasion, also, to
read quite a lecture to those husbands, of a
more promising age, who are supposed to
be not altogether incorrigible. For tho ben
efit of such, we quote the following passage!
from her remarks:
"Are husbands so generally the perfect, amia
ble, injured beings they are so often represented?
Men sometimes declare that their wives' etrav
near.ee hove picked their pockets that their
never-ceasing tongues have robbed them of their
peace, and their general disagreebleness has driv.
en them to the tavern and gaming table, but this
is generally the wicked excuse lot a most wicked
life on their own part. The fact is, men often lose
their interest in their homes by their own neg.
lect to make their homes interesting and pleasant.
It should never be forgotten that ihe wife has her
rights as sacred after marriage as before and
a good husband's devotion to the wife after mar
riage will concede to htr quite as much atten
tion as his gallantry did while a lover. If it is
otherwise, he most generally is at fault.
Take a few examples. Before marriage a
young man would feel some delicacy about nc
ccplir.g an invhation lo sper.d an evening in com
pany, where his lady love has not been invited.
After marriage is ha always as particular? Du
ring the days of courtship his gallantry would de
mand that he should make himself agreeable to
her; after marriage it often happens that he thinks
more of being agreeable to himself. How often
it happens that married men, afier having been
away from home the living day, during which ihe
wife has toiled at her duties, go at evening Bgain
to some place of amusement, and leave her to
toil on alone, uncheered and unhappy? How of
ten it happens that her kindest offices p'iSS unob.
served and unrewarded even by a smile, and her
best efforts are condemned by the fault finding
husband.-? How often it happens, even when the
evening is spent at home, thai it is employed in
silent reading, or some other way that does not
recognize the wife's right to share in the enjoy,
men'.sevcn of l!:c fireside!
"We repeat it, very few women make indif
ferent wives, whose feeling' have not met with
pome outwnrd shock, by the indifference cr
i boiialitlessness of their husbands. It is our
candid opinion that in a large majority of the
instances oi domestic misery lue mair-taj ha ac

iill'-'cts us difil'ieutiy, according to our con
stitutions. One set of fellows, who are gen
erally tho plensantes', seldom get beyond
the length ot flirtation. They are always
at it, but constantly changing, and therefore
manage lo get ihrnuuh a tolerable catalogue
of attachments before thev are finally
:(4Jnltccare of i
4Onfcccare of themselves, and require but
little admonition. You no doubt hear them
now and then abused for trifling with the
nin.rfnina nf n vnnni, m i n no if I tin lnl-
ter had themselves the slightest remorse in
playing precisely the same game; but in
most cases such censure is undeserved, for
they are quite as much in earnest as their
neighbors, s long as t lie impulse lats. The
true explanation is, that they have survived
their fii at passions, and lhat their faith is
somen hat shaken in the boyish creed of the
absolute perfectibility of women. Thcgrcat
disappointment of life docs not make thein
misanthropes, but it forces them to caution,
nnd to a closer appreciation of character
than is usually undoi taken in the first in
stance. They have become, perhaps, more
selfish, cerlaiidy more suspicious; and,
though often on the verge of a proposal,
they never commit themselves without an
extreme degree of deliberation. Another
set seem designed by nature to be the abso
lute victims t'f women. Whenever they
tall in love, they do it w ith an earnestness
and an obstinary which is actually appall
ing. The adored olj 'cl of their afl'octions
can twine them rout.d her finger, quarrel
with them, client them, caricature them, or
flirt with others, without the least risk of
severing ihe triple cord of attachment.
They become ns tame as poodle-dogs, will
submit patiently to any manner of cruelty
or caprice, and in fact, seem rather to ba
grateful for such treatment than otherwise.
Clever women usually contrive to secure a
captivity of this kind. He is useful to them
in a hundred ways never interferes with
their schemes, and, if the worst comes to
the worst, they can always fall back upon
him as a stand bv.
Education. The multiiude think that
to educate a child is to crowd into hit mind
a given amount of knowledge; to load the
memory with words. No wonder lhat
ihey ihink everybody fit to teach. The
true end of education is to unfold and di
rect aright our whole nature. Its office is
to call forth powers of thought, affection,
will and outward actions, powers to observe,
to reason, to judge, to contrive powers
to adopt good counsels, and to pursue
them, to govern orusclves and influence
others, lo gain and spread happiness. The
intellect was created not to receive passive
ly a few words, dates and facts, but to be
active for the acquisition of truth. Educa
tion should inspire a profound love of truth,
and leach ihe process of investigation. A
sound logic, by which we mean the scienco
and art which instructs us in the true laws
of reasoning nnd evidence, is an essen
tial part of a good education. Channing.
Female education Tho system of fe
male education, as it now stands, aims only
at embellishing a few years of life, which
are in themselves so full of pleasure and
happiness, that they hardly need it, and
then leaves the rest of existence a miserable
prey to vacancy and insignificance. The
' real object of educotion is lo giye children
resources that will endure as long as life
endures, habits lhat time will ameliorate,
not destroy, occupations lhat will render
sickness tolerable, solitude pleasant, age
venerable, life more dignified and useful, and
death less terrible. Rev, Sidney Smith.
