2b the Editor of the Daily Netos .*
Sin: In our roviow o? Dr. SIMS"pamphlet on
Cholera, in your issiio of tho 11th inst., wo cn
doavored to show that tho author had recommend
ed for general uso with Ibopooplo, medicinal com
pounds ompirioal and dangerous ia charaoter, nud
that ho had boon onrelcps and unscientillo iu his
modo of conveying tho instruction!* ofiorcd. His
reply, in your ?HSUC of the 17th, has in ?io wise
chaugod our opiuion. Tho first effort in this roply
is to frighten us ?ith tho namo of WILLIAM Arc
KtNj M. D., Edinburgh, Profoaeor in tho Army
Medical School, Corresponding Member of a long
string of Imperial Societies, Pathologist to the
Military Hospitals, <Jcc, &c. Wo aro as little
moved as wo wore, upon reading tho title-pago to
tho pamphlet on Cholera, to find that the author
was THOMAS SIM, M-. I)., and Licentiate of tho Col
legcv?f Physicians and Surgeon??, Glasgow, Special
Health Officer, Department of South Carolina and
Goorgia, etc. * ,
We have shown that tho titles or tho latter
author were no guaranteo of the correctness or
purity of his English, and that (hoy did not pro
vent his using tho nominative in lieu of tho geni
tal (see formula* in pamphlet) when indulging in
a Latin prescription. So it may bo, that tho titles
of the former aro not Bynonymous with infallibili
ty of judgment, and that they do not constitute
tho individual a medical authority, from which
there is no appeal. We say this with no intention
al disparagement of Dr. AITKEN or bia book. Wo
acknowledge tho author as high authority, al
though we do remember reading in his book a
chapter upon yellow fever, which exhibited views
altogether unsound upon the pathology and treat
ment of the disease. But this endeavor to adduce,
authority for the use of chlorodyne, is only a "iuo
thrown io the whale.'' In our criticism, we did not
deny the possible utility of chlorodyne in certain
diseased conditions. Wo sim ply characterized ita?
an unscientific, dangerous and empirical nostrum.
Orthodox physicians will often resort to such agents
in an experimental way. If Dr. AITKEN and otho m in
England chooao to outer the lists with the London
quacks, who are even now disputing as to what id
chlorodyne,- (soo advertisements in the Medical
Times and Gazelle for thiB year), wo certainly
shall not follow their example. We fully agroe with
tho high authority of the editor of tho journal re
ferred to. In his issue for January, 18G6, he says, em
em phatically, " We never prescribed it (chlorodinc)
ourselves, and never shall." It is legitimate to ailinn
that every nostrum ever invented may have ita ap
plicability. We are nob surprisod, then, at Dr.
AITKKK'S reporting favorably upon the efficiency
of chlorodyne in certain cases of irritable stom
ach. It has only now occurred to Dr. SIM, in his
reply to the review of his artiole, to say that ho
prescribed the ohlorodyne "for the purpose of
preventing cramps, chocking tho vomiting, and
allaying irritation of the stomach." In his pam
phlet the artiole was simply ordered to bo given
"on the first appearance of the 'nee-wa tor' dis
chtrrges." The stomach scorned to givo him no
ooncorn, for the remedy was pressed on every
hour, "in half a tumbler of water, or chamomile
or mint tea." Did Dr. SIM got this idea also from
Dr. An-KEN'S book, or does ho there find his prac
tice supported? ,
Wo objected to the uso of chlorodyne by the
people mainly because of it containing a fall por
tion of hydrocyanic acid. Poisons aro ofton given
as remedial agonts, but these should bo prescribed
only when the physician can noto their effect?.
With any powerful ngent we aro prudently en
joined, by all good authority, to begin with a min
imum done, and watch tho result beioro resorting
to increased quantities. The euicoptibilitiua of
individuals differ so much, that a do-so that ia re
medial for one may pi ove poisonous with anothor.
It ia tho true physician'a duty to ascertain tilia
susceptibility, and lo feel his way ia tho troatniont
In regard to moat of tho so-called poiaonoua
medicinal agents, tho doao ia so apportioned in
the prescription that a littlo iucreaso of it, through
carolessness or mistake on the part of the patient
or nurse, would ?eldon? dillinger lifo or produce
soiiius conaoquencus. Thus it ia that laudanum
and chloioform and inorphina and sugar of lead
aro overy day used with impunity. The case is
vastly different where hydrocyanic acid is tho
agent proscribed, and particularly when it is or
dered in tho full dose of two drops. ,Tho size and
formation of the mouth of the phial from which
the article is dropped may so determino the quan
tity given as to poison tho patient. To ailinn,
then, that chlorodyne can bo as safety trusted in
the hands of the pcoplo as laudanum or chloro
form or sugar of lead, exhibits either an ignorance
of the relative potenoy of these drug?, or a reck
lessness in tboir uso, which should not pertain to
a praotical physician.
But Dr. 1-M has just become-p-sosaod of the
triumphant argument In favor of the safety and
utility of chlorodyne. The wife of a clergyman
at Paris has. administered this airent in "sixty
cases of choUsra, all of whom recovered !" The
remedy then can bo given with safety by a wo
man, and can successfully combat tho disease.
This is the argument. With all of our prejudices
and fear*, wo would willingly entrust the article
with an intelligent femalo nurse. We havo not
forgotten Miss NIOUTIKOALE; nor, indeed, the
many prudent women upon whom wo every day
roly in our ooaling with the sick. But does Dr.
8IM expect eycry.cholera pitiont in Carolina and
Georgia to havo tho benefit of an intelligent female
to carry out his directions ?
In regard to the reported cure of tho sixty cases
of cholera, wo are skepticnl. Wore this talo true,
and had such a boon been discovered in chloro
dyne, already wo should have heard tho shout of
thankfulness and triumph ovor thia broad earth.
The remedy, we fear, has accomplished too much.
When time enable? us to be as credulous as Dr.
SIM in regard to these sixty oases, wo shall thank
God, abandon our prejudices, and render fall ac
knowledgment to the health ofllcer who has
affordod us his watohful care. But Dr. SIM,
after enlightening us with the wondorful rosults
of chlorodyno at Paris, suddenly deserts the
clergyman's wife-suddenly drops tbo newly dis
co*'.red boon, and tells na that ho clines
to tho Hydroch orate of .^Amm-jitia as the
shoot-ancInsr in tho treatment of the dis
ease. And this opinion is basod upon an
oxp?iionoo commenced in Hay, 1832. Why has
not Dr. 8IM previously onlightened tho profas.
sion ? and why was ho not sent to Constantinople?
Dr. Six accuses us of ignorance of the fact that
"thoriaoa. is commonly used by physicians in
their proscriptions to signify moiassos or .rea
ole." We p'oal guilty to tho ch.tr_e. Wa were
awaro that in Great Britain "thcriactt" waa used
as synonimous with treacle, and KO far alluded to
tho matter as to offer an explanation of the fact
in our review. As wo know, however, that pl\ysi
cians in this country never used the term in pre
scriptions, wo criticized and coiidoinncd tho illo.:i
t?nate uso made of it by Dr. Bui in writing n, pop
ular treatise, and ventured to assert that his pre
scription would puzzlo tho druggists. Since the
Dr. has thought proper to impute to us igno
rance for tho expression of thi-i opinion, wo desire
to refer lum to tho subjoined testimony of three
of our most efficient druggists. These gentlemen
woro educated in Europe, and for this reason we
havo nought their opinion. Wo intend no dis
paragement to tho "many" with whom Dr. HIM
has convorscd, and who are satisfied with his
Our incidontal allusion to tho torm "suspension
of urine," Dr. S. has bien pleased to notice, and
to insist upon the correctness of tho expression be
cause it was moant to "expresa tho fact that tho
functions of tho kidneys aro suspended." Wo
can very well understand a suspension or arrest
of function;'but a "suspension" of urino within
tho body is something now to us. Where Micro is
no urino in the bladder, there surely can be none
socroted, or, if thoro is, wo would like Dr. S. to
designate tho euBpousion apparatus. But if the
Doctor maintains that this oxprossion is not au
"error" in his production, ho muet coucedu it to
bo a "merit." Now, as ho disclaims generously
all tho merits of his treatise, he must bo kind
enough to aBsigu this expression to some one
"holding a high position as a teacher in tho
medical world." Our conversion to his view may
possibly be brought about if he will refer us to
authority oven less ancient than ". GALEN. '
Tho following noto was addressed to the three
Druggists, referred to above ;
Om.ni.EHT IN, May 17th, I860.
DEAR Sin :-Bo kind enough to inform mo, if,
during your oxperionco as a Druggist in this
country or in Europe, you have- known the torm
" Tnertiica" commonly used by physicians in their
prescriptions to signify it "Treacle" or "MOIHBHOS."
CHABLESTON, May 17tb, 18GG.
In reply to your inquiry I would state that tho
torm " Theriaca" ia, as far as my experience goes,
nover employed to signify M?lasses or Treacle.
If a prescription was presented to mo with " The
riaoa" as one of the iugrodionta, I would suppose
tbat the " Electuary of Theriaca" (a weak prepa
ration of opium) was intended.

DEAR Sin : I would respectfully state, in reply
to your note, that tho torm "tboriao" is not oom
monly used by physicians, either in this country
or in Europe, to signify treacle or molasses; and I

DEAR SIB :-lu reply to your noto in regard to
the article Theriac, I wonld state that, iu my ex
perience of forty years in Europe and this place,
the article has al vaya been known to me as an
aromatic con feet inn containing opium; and I

[a"/-.)?! Baltimore Gazette.]
The National Express and Transportation Com
pany has ititi" du ;ed into its lm.?i.ieas a novel and
very important feature, by which large additional
security is guaranteed to all shippers of money
and valuable packages. It has effected arrange
ments with a number of leading In.-ui auco Com
panies, piincipally in Now York, euch as tho Sun,
Hoourily, Manhattan, Metropolitan, and Pheonix,
by which the cniiro oontents of tho money chest:?
of tho Express Company uro insured against com
mon carriers's risk. In addition to tho liability of
the O'mi puny for all losaes, the thipper has, there
fore, the further security of theso weli-;.nown In
surance Companies, whose capital and-surplus
assets rcpiosciit a total valuo of a bout 515,01)0,000,
and who, liy the transportation policies now issued,
placo themselves, in fact, in tlio stead of the Ex
press O iiupany, and bind themselves to ni A
gooil all losetJ f'.r which it, as comm on" carrier,
can bo held responsible.
The policios of (ho several companies under
writing the rii?k generally cover au amount of
$50,000 oach. The aggregate amount covered hy
any ouo risk is $500,000. But as the risUs are gene
rally of short duration, and are constantly re
peated, this gives but a laint idea of the" m igui
tudo of the proposed insurance. It is no unusual
thing, for money alone, to tho amount of $500,001?.
to be transported at one time to New York, aud
a similar amount may very easily be coming at
the same timo in an opposite direction, while
large amounts may also be in transitu between
Baitimoro and Richmond, or Cincinnati, or be
tween Cincinnati and Chicago, or St. Louis. It
will rnadilr bo understood, therefore, that a risk
of t5t>0,000, which is constantly repea in? itself,
in some instaucossoveral times a day ? the same
route, may very easily swell up to a I... go amount,
and it is not at nil an extravagant assertion to
make, that a first-olaaa Expresa can very easily
do business under such a policy or policies to the
amonnt of $50,000,000 per annum. ?
Aa an insurance operation it certainly promises
to be one of a magnitude hitherto unknown. The
idoa waB conceived by tho-National Express and
Transportation Company, for the purpose of in ?
spiring confidence from the start in the friends of
the company by offering to all shippers of money
or valuables a urge and undoubted socurity, such
as could be offurod by no other singlo company.
Tho scheme was carried out aud the arrangements
finally perfected by our well-known Insurance
Agent, Mr. Thomas D. Johnston, who acts aa
agont for the Iusuranco Companies, underwriting
tho risk, and to whom the Expross Company
makes its returns. The Insurance premium is
Cn ii by the Express Company out of its receipts,
o charge whatever being made for tho additional
security thus provided.

this order is pure anger and fear that Brownsville
will do all iho bnainess of Mexico, as it-did before
the war. They hope, by a decree against Browns
ville to force all the trade through their port, and
put all the freights fn their own hands. The
working of the decree is as they hoped. No busi
ness can be doue at Brownsville, as tho whole
trado of Brownsville is with Mexico. Of course,
all trade is paralyzed. There is, he saya, one
mode of redress wbioh would havo the immediate
effect of showing them that the rulo will work
both ways. An order from the Secretary ef the
Treasury to the Collector* of ?he ports of New
Orleans, Qalvoaton, aud Indlanola not to clear
any vessels for the ports of Hagdad or Matamoros,
Mexico, until you had laid tho matter before the
authorities at Mexico, would oauaa consternation
at Matamoras, as they draw all their supplies of
corn, hay, lard, flour, and, in-fact, nearly all gro
ceries from the?-? cities. The cities of T?mpico
and Yera Cruz would thon do all the business of
the- interior of Mexico, and San Antonio, Texan,
the trade of Chihuahua, while this plaoo would
feed all the Bio Orando valley.
In just-u to many of the prominent nu reliants
of Matamoras, the Collector states that they aro
entirely oppose I to this decree, whilo others in

The President also sont a mossago to Congress
inclosiux a copy of tho correapondenco between
tho Secretary of State aud the ucting Charge
d'Ai-irs of the United States at Guayaquil, in the
itcpiiblio of Ecuador, from which it appo.irs that
tho Government of that Republic bas failed to pay
thu first instalment of tho award of tho Commis
sioners, under the Convention bot ween tue United
States and Ecuador, o? the .25th of November,
1W2, which installment was due on the 17th or
Feoruary last. As debts of tbib character, from
one Government to another, aro justly rogurdud
as of a peculiarly sacred character, and as further
diplomatic measures are not, in this inatanc?*,
likely to bo t>uccosBful, the expediency of author
izing other proceedings, in case they should ulti
mately prove to bo indidponsable, is submitted to
the consideration of Congress.
THE INDIO-IKNT OP JEFUURSOM 1>.?TVI8.
All the lawyers who havo read the indiotmont
against Jefferson Davis, including several emi
nent members of the Bar who aro members of
Congress? say that it ia drawn in an exceedingly
lame manner, that it is fall of defects and weak
points; and that no conviction for treason can be
secured under it.
Toe Badloala in ?Congress, however, are aotivelv
engaged iu throwing all kinds of obstacles in the
way or a trial before the civil courts.
To-day. iu tit? Sen ?tv, Mr. Trumball, from Iii.
Judiciary, reported a bill to change the place and
'timeof holding United States courts in Virginia.
It changes the placo (rom Norfolk to Richmond,
ami provides that the time for commencing court

A provision giving tho Cliiof Justico powers to

that tho House Judiciary Committee will noon re

It is how said that tho idoa of a recess has boen
aba- doned, and that Congress will continue in
tieHtdon until October. There is no prospect that
tho business of the session can bo completed be
foro August or September. Many of the raembeis
are getting leave of abeonco for a few weeks, and
will tako a brief holiday and then return. In ibis
way there can always bo enough membora on baud
to constitute a quorum.
THE COLOBADO VETO.
Tho President's Acting Private Secretary, Col.
Coopor, delivered to tho Sonato to-day a message
in writing, containing tho objection?! of the Presi
dent to tho bill for the admission of Colorado into
the Union as a S'ate. This announcement created
some little aurprieo, asan nnauthonticatcd rumor
Just previously prevailed that the bill had been
approved. Later in the afternoon an effort was
msdo to proceed with the consideration of the
mossage, but the majority proferrod to tako au
early start with it to-morrow. It was not for
mally laid before tho Senate, and therefore not
read. For this reason the message oannot now
bo proaouted to tup country.
But it was privately perused by several Sona
tors, who say it takes tho ground that the erec
tion of Colorado as a State is at present unneces
sary for the welfare of tho pcopls. Nor is it
clearly established that the majority desire or are
propared for such a chango. The population is
insufficient, and has diminished rather than in
creased. In addition te these and other romona,
it is stated, the President says : Caution should
bo exercised in tho admission of now States, and
especially as eleven of tho t?tatoa are now without
a representation, and all should bo consulted as to
who shall become members of tho Union.' V
