In tho Baltimore Sun wo find the following
resolution reported by tho comm:ttco
to whom the whole matter wns
referred. 7heso resolutions were unanimously
adopted on tho seventh day:
T\\c first resolution states that tho territories
of the United States belong to
#lisi nnm^ln nf (lm i-rti'nro 1 .Qf ilfnc n? flmit*
common property?that the citizens of
the several States had equal right to migrate
with their property to those territories,
and should ho protected in the
enjoyment of that property, so long as
the territories remain under charge of
The second resolution sets forth that
Congress has no power to exclude from
the territor of the United States property
lawfully belonging to States of the
Union, and any act wrich may be passed
by Congress to effect this result, is a plain
I'lnlnfinn r\C (lio ^AnclShitiAn nf TTniJn/1
Third, Resolved, That it is the duty of
Congress to provide a government for
territories, since the spirit of American
institutions forbids the maintenance of
military government in time cf peaee,
and all law's heretofore existing in territories
once belonging to foreign powers,
which interfere with full enjoyment of
religion, freedom of the press, trial by
jury, and all other rights of persons or
property, as secured or rccognnised in
courts of the United States, arc necessarily
void, so soon as such territories become
American territory. It is the duty
of the federal government to make early
provisions for the enactment of those
laws which may be expedient and neces
Biiry to secure to the inhabitants and
emigrants to such territories the full benefit
of their constitutional rights
Fourth. Resolved, That to protect property
existing in the several States of
the Union, the people of these Stales invested
the Federal Government with
powers of war nnd negotiation and of
sustaining armies and navies; and to prohibit
to State authorities the exercise of
the same powers, they made no discrimi
nation in the protection of the property
to be defended, nor was it allowed to the
Federal Government to determine what
should be held as property; whatever in
the States is known as property, government
is bound to recognize and defend as
such. Therefore, it is the senso of this
convention, that all acts of the Federal
Government which tend to denationalize
property of any description, recognised
in the constitution and laws of the Suites,
or that discriminate in the degrees of the
efficiency of the protection to l>c afforded
to it, or weaken or destroy the title of any
citisen upon American territory, arc plain
and palpable violations of the fundamental
laws under which it exists.
Fifth. Resolved, That the slave holding
States cannot and will not submit to ihe
enactment by Congress of any law imposing
onerous conditions or restraints to remove
with their property into the Territories
of the United States; making discriminations
in favor of other property
Sixth. Resolved, That it is the duty of
the Federal Government plainly to* recognise
and firmly to maintain the equal
rlnl,!. -?: * 1 " '
vi inu viukviih 01 wic scverni oiaiea
in the Territories of the United States,
and to repudiate the power to make n
discrimination between tho propietors oi
different species of property in theFeberal
legislation. The fulfilment of this duty
by the Federal Government would
greatly tend to restore the peace of the
Seventh. Resotved, That the performance
of this duty is required by the fundamental
law of the Union?the equality
of the several States composing the Union
r -mot be disturbed without disturbing
cho fame of the American institution:
?this principle is violated in the citizens
of the slaveholding States, if power t<
enter the territories with the property
lawfully acquired bo denied?the warfare
against this right is a war upon the
Constitution, and tho defenders of this
right are defenders of tho Constitution.
Eighth, lle&olved, That in the performance
of its duties, upon tho princi
pic we declared, it would enable Congresi
to remove the embarrassments in whicl
the country is now involved. The vacan
territories of tho United States, no longei
regarded as prizes for sectional rapacitj
and ambition, wo'dd be gradually occu
pied; the inhabit;, ts drawn to them bj
their interests and feeing; institutioni
fitted to them would be naturally applied
a government formed on American ideai
approved by their constituents.
Ninth. Resolved, Thit a recognition 01
this principle would deprive the question!

Eleventh, Retolvcd, That in tho event
of a dominant majority, who shall refuse
to recognize the constitutional right we
assert, and continue to deny the obliga|
tions of the federal government?to
maintain them it is the sense of this Convention
that the territories should be divided
and treated as property, and divided
between the sections of the Union as

quately secured in their respective shares;
that we arc aware, this course is open to
great objections, but we are rchdy to acquiesce
in the adoption of the line 30 30
North latitude, extending to the Pacific
ocean, an extreme concession upon the
considerations of what is due to the stability
of our institutions.
Twelvth. Resolved, That it is the opinion
of this convention this controversy
should be ended, either by the recognition
of tho constitutional rights of the
Southern people, or bj' nn equitable partition
of the territories; that the spectacle
of a confedarcy of the States involved
in quarrels over inc iruits 01 a war in
which the American arms were crowned
with glory is humiliating; that the incorporation
of tlio Wilmot Proviso in tho
ofter of a settlement is a proposition
which the (Southern States regard as disparaging
and dishonorable, is degrading
to this country; the termination of this
controversy by tho destruction of the
confederacy would be a climax to the
shame which attaches to the controversy,
which it is the paramount duty of Congress
Thirteenth. Resolved That this Convent'.cn

The following curious statement is
made in a reccnt letter of the regular
Paris correspondent of the London Atlas:
"Wonders will never cease in Paris.?
A discovery which ha* been made of an
extraordinary individual living at the
13arrierc d'Eufe, and who proclaims himself
to the world as the heir and successor
of Jesus Christ, has created the
greatest curiosity among the miraclehunters
of our capital. This man is a
peasant of the name of Perimond, about
live and forty years of age, of simple and
unpretending manners and homely speech
lie is, however, under some oxtrao dinary
magnetic influence, for he has cured,
by the effect of his touch alone, many
hundreds of persons who have been to
visit him. lie receives all strangers who
seek him with the greatest simplicity, disclaims
any credit for the wondrous miracles
he performed, tnorcly repeating the
assurance of his appointment by the Saviour,
who appeared to him in adieam,
to go forth to the world to testify to the
truth of the Gospel. He is of short
stature, and of full and expressive countenance.
His hair, parted on the forehead,
descend on either side of his temples.

whichever it may he, that he thus
openly advances, were It not for the extradiuary
stir/mates on his hands and leet,
and the deep cicatrice in his side, whence
dnring the whole Passion TFeek, hare
issued large drops of blood! Many people
worthy of belief have told me that
there is no delusion about this. The
hands and feet are pierced through and

, that they have seen tho blood ooze from

Nkw Di8TiunimoN of Parties.?The
following, from the Natchez Free Trader,
is as true as it is pithy. We commend it
to the attention of the folks at Washington,
and shall be glad to know, at their
earliest convenience, to which of the four
parties they belong, as a system of classification
is comparatively useless unless
we know where to place the individuals.
We have been permitted to copy the
following torse extract from a letter to
one of our members in Congress;
There appoars to bo two parties in congress".
1st, a party from tho South who
wish to cut their own throats.
2d. A party at the North who do not
wish the people of the South to cut their
own throats, but prefer doing the job for
3d, A party from the Noith, who arc
willing that the people of the South may
cut their own throats.
4th, A party at the South, who do not
intend to cut their own throat*, or let any
one else do it for them.
This last party have tho other three
against them, and they will have to ex- j
| ert great, energy to save their jugulars.-?
Wifk of Gknbral Jackson.?The
inAuehce of this woman over her husband
is said to have been veiy extraordinary.
She was of obscure origin and uneduca
ted. Yet she inherited from nature those
fine and noble traits of her sex to such
perfection her power and fascinations
were very great* General Jackson was
attached to her in early life, but by somo
means or other the matter was interrupted
and she married another, who
proved a villian and the connection most
unhappy. General Jackson again became
interested in her> the conscqucnce
was a divorce, when he was married to
her. Sho is said to have possessed none
of those accomplishments that are sup'
posed to adorn fashionable fife; reared in
the bachwoods, seeing and knowing little
of elegant and refined society. Yet her
fine person, strong affections, and good
sense, the three great essentials of a woman,
enabled her lo take hold with irrcBistable
force tho passions of tho bold,
turbulent, strong and fiery warrior and
statesman to whom she was wedded. It
was the lion held in the embrace of the
fawn. The influence she excrciscd is
said to have bordered on the suporstitious.
Ho imagined that no power or
acta of his could succeed, or be carried
out, averse to her will or in opposition to
her feelings. She seemed his guardian
angel by day and by night; holding in
her hands his life, nis fate, iiia all. An
intimate friend of his says, that so long
as he Jived he wore her miniature near
his heart, and never alluded to her except
i(i a manner so subdued and full of reverence,
that the listener was deeply impressed
with her transcendnnt worth.?
i Laws of Hkalth.?Children should

Children should sleep in separate beds
and should not wear night-caps.
Children under seven years of age
