than we ever have been at any former contest.
We had eew itbb hope of electing Mr. Val-

CAMrarat, would receive such an overwhel-

several causes operating against the democra

" Know Nothingism." Handbilla of every hue
were freely circulated throughout the District,
the night previous to the election, and excited
intensly conflicting passions. .The Free Soil

had no opposition, it was not important to at

produced the present state of affairs and while
we are sorry that Mr. V. has been defeated

doy had gone by when the "third party," the
"shameless traders 'it spoils," held the bal

the old parties cared straw about courting
their aid and influence. 6uoh being the state
of affairs, the ticket was formed without giv

or at all noticing or taking theirexistenceinto
account. The .Whigs, by a well-managed
scheme, got their endorsement in a series of
resolutions of Lewis D. CAMrstxL,' and after
wards gave them the cold shqulder and threw .
them entirely off, when there was nothing to
break their fall. That was cruel in the ex

they were wsrned time and again, but heeded

more than laugh at their calamity, and mock
when their fear came upon them. Sic transit

them have been long known ss teachers,' whilst
others, have for noar a quarter of a century
been identified with the cultivation and prac
tice of their profession in the west. We find
that tne college is about commencing its sixth

gress having far surpassed the hopes of its
most sanguine friends, and under its present

To this college is attached the Marine Hos
pital, in which all sick boatmen are received
and treated. Extensive aa is our commerce,
employing crafts of every kind, the labor upon
which requires a large number of river-men,
and subjected as they ore to every exposure
and inclemency of weather and liable to fre
quent aceidents, a large portion must of ne
cessity fall ill, and requi.ro Medical and Sur
gical aid. Tho inmates of this Hospital are
not only the roost nnmerous,but are generally
affected with diseases of an acute nature, and
hence are much more interesting as well at
infinitely more useful to the student than the
chronio cases with which most charities are
Prof. Baker hts charge of the Surgical de
partment of tho Hospital, and is thus enabled
to present a large and interesting surgical,
clinio and throughout the session the student
is enabled to witness a great nnmber of ope
rations and have presented to him an exten
sive variety of surgical cases of a recent char
acter, such as he is liable to meet with In
every day praoitoe. Prof. Baker occupies a
high position in his profession is a bold and
skillful operator and fluent lecturer. ,
The Medical wards are under the care of the
professor of Theory and Practice, B. S. Law
son, M. D. The Medical clinio is large and(
composed as it is, of acute diseases, and those
which particularly belong Io tho west and
south, the advantage to the student of this bed
side teaching is incalculable. The principles
which be receives in the lecture room are here
reduced to practice, and he thus becomes to a
great extent familiar with the peculiar charac
teristics of individual alTeotions. The wisdom
of olinioal instruction is now no longer a ques
tion it is essential to a thorough and complete
Medical eduoation. Every intelligent physi
cian ia aware of this, and Medical students
will hereafter seek those colleges where its
importance isreoognized by a liberal provision
for its prosecution. . -.
Prof. Lawson has long been engaged in the
practical application of those, " Principles of
Praotice" which he so successfully teaches,
his large clinio will enable him to illustrate
his lectures by specifio cases and with such
art vantngea the hearer must make rapid ad
vancement in the study, and his knowledge be
most accurate in Diagnosis and treatment.
The Prof, of Chemistry formerly occupied
the same chair in the Medical College of Ohio,
and has for some time leolured upon "Applied
Chemistry" in the Mechanic'e Institute, Ba
con's Commercial College, Cincinnati Sum
mer School of Mc.icine, Western Dagueirean
Association, and Gundry's CommerciaU'ol
lege. With such experience in leotu'ring and
teaching he will be enabled to give his course
a prnctioal and useful character. "
The importance of Physiology and Surgical
Anatomy has been recognized in establishing
a chair deveied to them and the appointment
to its occupancy of Prof. C. B. Chupman.
These branches have generally been attached
toother chairs and but little attentiongiven to
them. Prof. Chapman, by his pievious expe
rience as a lecturer pn Surgery and Anatomy
in the Iowa University, and formerly on Anat
omy and Physiology in this institution, and
bavins the advantages of European teaching,
will no doubt give a course of instructions of
teal benefit to his class.
The chair of Anatomy is well supplied with
tho' materials for teaching and illustrating this
branch. The ProtV W. W. Dawson, M. D.,
has for some years been engaged in the culti
vation of the natural sciences, b it more es
pecially of Anatomy. He was formerly Dem
onstrator in this institution, and being enthu
siastically devoted to his deportment, he can
but make his course useful to his students.
That portion of the profession which elves
tho young practitioner most apprehension, and
upon which he needs instruction of the mast
thorough and practical, nature, may be found
under the cognomen oi uojieince. to mis
chsit the trustees have called e gentleman
who has for many years been engaged In our
midst in an extensive practice. . Prof. Crume
ban devoted much tune and care to tne study
of "Obstetrics' and diseases of Women and
Children," and comes before his class with
large experience, and a mind stored With well
digested facts. Havinr, as be has, devoted
much attention io tnese suojecis, ne cannot
fail to be an instructive lecturer. .
Prof. Harrison formerly occupied the same
chair in the Indiana Medical College that he
now does in this institution that of Materia
Medics and Therapeutics and Medical Juris
prudence. . He is enthusiastically fond of this
department he is a fluent speaker with a
dear didatio style. These branches of Medi-
al uience. under his teaching, must necesss
rily assume that interest and attention which
their position snd importance demand.
The regular course of lectures will com
mence on the 30th. of October and continue
until the 1st of March.
There will be a preliminary course of lee
Hires during the. month of October, to which
all students are invited free of charge. The
wards of the Marine Hospital win be open

of the Reverend Mr. LangarK ' '
. Firiti The soul is not naturally immortal.
It exists only by the will of God. .
Steondt Immortality is only granted through
Jesus Christ ...
Taird; The soul is not destroyed at death
but exists by the will of God until the resur

will come the second death, from which there
is no resurrection. This second death will
consist in the entire annihilation of the pick

for preaching the above doctrine but for ex

finement were three in number, and their
names and former places of residence were
as follows: William Shirley, Broome county,

filthy dungeon four yeais and - three months,
and during two years of this timo they were

where they could not see any fine but the
person who fed them their starving allowance.

Our Informants learned from many respect
able Spaniords in Durango, that it was impos
sible to get evidence to convict them; and
the great mass of the people believe them
innocent. The youngest of these prisoners,
John Gaines, of Dayton, Ohio, is only 17
years old. .
The above statement is of the most reliable
character. These persons witnessed it with
their own eyes, and they ore persons of un
doubted veracity, and. some of them have
long been known to some of our citizens. Let
the alarm be sonnded in the ears of every
American ciliren, that three of their brothers
are confined without cause, and are famishing

, The great hue and cry of the Abolitionist
against the Nebraska bill, has been that it ex
tends slavery into free territory. . They know
very well that they.lie like the devil when they
make this charge. But for the benefit of some
of our readers who are national Clay Whigs
we give below the opinion of Judge Polio k,
Me whig candidate for Governor of Psnnsyhvra-
ia. Being interrogated as to the probability
of slavery beipg established in Nebraska and
Kansas, the Judge replies that it cannot, and
adds :' . ' ' i ,;...., .
"The power to establish slavery can only
exiat in expreu grant, or as on incident of ab
solute sovereignty; and as the government of
the United Slates has not an absolute but
limited, const hntionat sovereigntrran4 as the
constitution contains no grant of this power
expreu or implied, it follows that congress has
no power to establish, directly or Indirectly,
by positive act or by. permission under the
plea of "non-intervehtiou," slavery in the free
territories of the United States.' Jf, there
fore, slavery epters into these territories,
will be there, not only without authority of
constitutional la w.but tn violation of all law."
The editor of the Pittsburgh Whig Uuion,
commenting on the above says t
"There is a nut forfhe abolitionists tocraek:
Judge Pollock tells them very distinctly that
they have been making asses of themselves, in
all their ravings about slavery in Nebraska
and .Kansas; that it has no legal existence
there, and cannot exist without positive law
to sustain it This is true, and all the fuss
we I ave made about slavery being extended
into these territories, has been but a shallow
device of tricky domogoguos." E.

The Other Ward Case.
It will be remembered that at Georgetown,
Kentucky, a verdict could not be brought
against Thomason in a true case of murder.
because one of the jury, irrespective of the
evidence', held out for "not mitt." until the
urr had to be dismissed without agreeing.
The name of the dissenting juror is JHcKen
zie Robinson. The Herald says, on leaving
the Court room Robinson was deliberately
hissed out of to wn by a crowd of several hu
dred people, only two of whom so far forgot
their self-respect as to inflict violence upon
the victim or the unanimous contempt of
whole community; Jie received but a single
blow, and this was reprehended by the as
sembled crowd. The Herald does not. hesi
tate to assert i's belief that he was bribed.
Thomason is still In prison, being unable

Although Yanes liberated tbe 187 French '

refused to sanction this generous proceed ingr

a question whether one fifteenth or one tenth.;

the matter is that Gen'l Santiago Blanoa feels
that the brilliant triumph won by Vanes is a
