hcarm:esse upon their own con<'ruction, would
disfranchnse the ummbers of the Union party
u!pOnon the mnterpretation given to it by the Nul
liliers. In 18.i4 whene A. It was first elec
te.J to the Senate (not in 183Ua alheged in the
<npplemental mn ticle) he presetted one of
these memnortals and made a speech against
the proposed amendment. Thee(se memorials

Chairnau of the Com:itt-e in the Senate made

Union party, for the right of private jidgment
in the wa tter w;sconeededto tlhemcdanod the con
struction which they supposed to be placed on
the oath by the nverse party was disavowed.
The;ilopion ofthis 'report constituted the
cmpromise beLtween the twoa parties, and for i
this report Mr. Brooks voted. Acd yet it is
for supporting this measaro, for which Mr.
Brooks voted, that 'ol. R. is now denounced
as "a foe to his country."
The Union Party have never since made
'ny objection to the oath. Mr Brookis
himself voted against the same oatho in 1433,
wheci intcorporated in the Militay Act before
lie amendmacent of-the Constitition was adoit
ed; and this :th in the Military Act, was pro
netnned to he against the conscitation of the U.
St-es.by Jaudges Johnson and O'Neal. Now,
if the. part whieh any Union man bore in this
"hby gone dispute" is to disqunalify him forever
from office, ot one side a large portion of our
citizens will be - isfranchised. and on tie other;
-the .taint of bad litith will hatng tpon the skirts
of the majority. 1.utt, I do not understand Mr.
-Brooks to disavow his formcer opincion, "that the
eievation, of a gentlenma froat the ranks of the
Union party would be wise iagnatiintns"&c.
whatever stiff may be uttered in the supple
tal article abent "elevatiig him to cocmand,
who was but yesterday thy country's foe "
Mr. Brooks inforns us that "he now prefers
'Mr. Van Duren upon every groundl whether of
principle or of policy, which hns been breAnght
into the discussion" of the Preaidentia election.
H e has discovered the strong side in the State,
and lie may stiekto it. Bttenpo any tither prin
riple. if we imay jiudge froma his frequent chan
ncc u1on analeogonus matters. he may be for and
sauinst Harrison a dozen timies before the elec
tioi. M r B. alleges, that he htts seen "abun

confirm his support of Mr. Van Buren. If so
he tnn-t, we presatume, have seen these grounds
of confirmtieon in.malters inleiendcet of the

have the hardihood to deniy that for ontiths af
ter the "extra session of 1?47." he'wase greatly
"staagered" as to his coirse ahont thaL measure.
Even now.thi< mcenasnre is belittled in the sapple

"a ieasire of the old Jackson party." Wihat

THlE MAIN BOUNDARY.
We have extracted from Monday's
Globe anm important ollciatl correspondete
laid before the Senate on this old butt still
interesting topic. A conventtion has been
agreed upon by our Gouvernmtent, for the
purpose of settlitng, if possible, the ques
tien of the Boundary on the basis of the
treaty of 1783. That a proposition in
volvinig tnot stipulntiotis of forbetaance or
proscrastitnation, but the whole merits of
the question, should have been sanctioned
by the two Governmtents, is cause of con
grattulation. in all the marny dillictulties
that haen surnounded anlnd peplexed .t...
subject, the Administration has acted uni
fornly with firmness, moderation and wis
dom that deserves the sucessful issue which
we hope will yet crown its ef!'orts to pre
serve the peace of the country without
lowering its dignity otr vielding its rights.
Public Sentiment.-We are informed
that at a meeting last Saturday, sixteen
miles below the Village. where there were
about two hundred citizens present, the
people were almost unaniious for the
present Administration. and against Gen.
Harrison. We are also informed that all
the Candidates of this District for the Le
gislature nere )rescnt except one, and
that they were unanimous in their opin
ions in favor or Mr. Van Buren for Presi
(lent. There were two, out of the three
Congressional Candidailes, present at the
same meeting who both made speeches to
the people. and came out decid.-dly for
Van lireu and against General Harrison.
There is not imuch prospect of a contest in
this District ou the P'residential question;
we believe that the District has hardly ever
er been more united on any political sub

General maxims for healih.-"fRise ear
ly. Eat simple food. Take sufficient
exercise. Never fear a little fatigue. Let
no children be dressed in tight clothes ; it
is necessary that their limts and mttscles
should have full play, if you wish for eith
er their health or their beauty. Avoid the
necessity of a physician, if you can, by
careful attention to your dict. Eat what
bestagre jwih your system, and reso
lutely abstain from wThat hurts you. how
ever well you mny like it. A few day's
abstinence, atdtcold water for a beverage,
has driven off many an approaching
disease. Wear shoes or boots that are
large enough ; it not only produces corn.s,
but makes the feet misshapen to cramp
them. ah or bathe very ofteri, and rub)
the skin thoroughly with a cloth or brush.
As fr r as possible, eat and sleep at regu
lar hours. Wash the eyes throughly in
cold watereverv morning. Do not read
or sew, at twilight, or by too dfazzling a
light. Clein, the teeth in pure water two
o- three ti-mes.a day t-but. above all, be
sure to have them clean before you go to
hed. Have your bed-chamber well aired,
and have fresh bed linen every week. It
is not healthy to sleep in heated rooms.
