We have heard the above query since
the agitation of the Fugitive Slave
question caused by the new law on
the subject . Reasoning from what
we- conceive correct premises, we
have supposed all such children free.
The Cin. Gazette has the following
article which is the first we have no
ticed in the paper on this subject
It shows satisfactorily that the
Courts, both North and South re
card all such children as free. The
Gazette ! ;
The Fugitive Law.
In the present excited state of the
public mind, it becomes important to
know how far the laws for the rec
lamation of fugitives effect colored
children born tn the free States, isy
including such children in the esti
mate of fugitive slaves, the number
is very much increased. We think
it very clear that these children are
neither within the words of thespir
it of the constitution, or the laws
made in pursuance thereof.
The Constitution declares that
"No person held to service or labor
in one State, according to the laws
thereof, escaping- into another, shall
in consequence ol any law or regula
tion therein, be discharged from such
service or labor, but shall be deliver
ed up on claim of the party to whom
such service or labor is cue.
The act of Congress, passed to give
effect to the above provision ot the
Constitution give a summary remedy
to persons to whom "service or la
bor" is due, in cases where those ow
ing such service or labor, "in any of
the United Stales or either of the
Territories," under "the laws there
of, shall escape into any other of the
said btates or Territory. The per
sons to be reclaimed under the laws
are described to them substantially
in the words of the Constitution, and
must on that account as well as on
general principles, be held to apply
to the persons therein described, and
to no other persons whatever. To
bring any person claimed as a fugi
tive, within the provisions of the acts
ot Congress, it must be shown that
he had been held to service or labor
in another jurisdiction, Slate or Ter
ritory, and had escaped from that
jurisdiction into the State orTerrito
ry where he is found and claimed.
Now it is perfectly clear that no
person born in a free State who has
never been in a Slave State, or have
escaped into any other State or Ter
ritory, and no such person can
therefore, be taken from any iuris-
diction within which he is found, as a
fugitive service, under the Constitu
tion and laws of the United States.
We are aware that it is held in the
Slave Slates that children born of
slave mother follow the condi
tion of the mother, but this as
sumption does not establish a right
to pursue and reclaim, as a person
owing service in a state, accord-
ng to its laws, and as having es
cavea irom sucn service, any one
who has never been in the State, and
consequensly could not have escaped
from it All such persons may rest
easy. Jhey cannct be proceeded
against under the acts of Congress
complained of. It is clear to our
mind, and we are confirmed in this
conviction by the decision of the Su
preme Court of Pennsylvania, and
the decision of the Court of Appealsi
n Virginia, that the child even of
slave mother born in a free State
free, and must be adjudged free bu
every oiaie in ine union.
The following which we copy
irom tne friend, a lenusylvania pa
per, sustains the views above ex
pressed ia every particular:
The Constitution only provides for
the recapture of those slaves, wh
have themselves escaped from one
Mate into another. An individual
to be within its provisions must have
been actually held to labor or service,
one State under the laws thereof.
and must have fled irom such service,
tne case ot a child born in a liee
State neither of these facts can exist,
nas neither been subjected to
Slavery, nor has ii escaped.
As long ago as 1316, this doctrine
was established by the unanimous
opinion of the supreme court of
Pennsylvania, that biith in that
State gave freedom to the child ol
slave who had absconded. And
this interpretation of the Constitu
tion has been acquiesced in by Courts
the Slave States. In 182S the
Court of Appeals in Virginia were
unanimously ol the opinion that they
were bound to give ellect to the law
freedom in Pennsylvania, though
was objected that it might confis
cate tne property of a citizen ofVir
niuia. in me case to which we re

However, wo do know that the general his

plaint was supposed te be thoroughly checked ;
oa Friday and Saturday be underwent consid
erable fatigue on Saturday night ba was at
tacked with cholera or malignant dysentery
and died next morning." This is the history
with doctors, with divines, with civilians, and
with laymen. Diarrima checked, cholera or
malignant dysentery sets in, and deatb'doses
tbe scene. And will nothing warn, win noth
ing induce a correct practice If all die who
have the diarrhsa checked, will aa physician
try the other plan and report tbe facts If
they were universally successful in saving their
patients with laudanum the opposing nature,
the binding up of disease in the body, instead
of expelling it out I say, if this treatment
was sometimes successful in saving life, to say
nothing of the constitution broken, yet, as
the cure was about as bad as the disease, I
shoald think that the purgative plan might be
tried Surely medical men are not afiaid of
the patient being toe soon cured for their pro
fit ! this will not comport with my idea o( the
general highminiledness of tbe profession.
No! it is from ignorance and education that
they are opposed to purgation with the Bran
dreth Pills. For purgation with tbe ordinary
purgatives I know will not cure diarrhoea, but
Brandn-th's Pills will, and I am willing to
submit them to any trial in tbe public hospi
tals that may be desired, as I have often pub
licly declared, out physicians at these insti.
tutions say. we will not nse them, sir, unless
you tell us of ahat they are made? It is for
their valuable effects in curing disease, and
tbeir special value in cholera that I wish them
to be used, is my reply. And is it of const-
quence that what compose the Brandreth Pills
should be known If you send a prescription
to the apothecary, you never have two apothe
caries who make use of the same quality or
drugs, and in fact so much do drugs of tbe same
name differ in appearance, that it requires
great experience to tell that they belong to the
tame family. Brandreth s rills are purely
vegetable; they are ten times more powerful.
weirht for weight, than calomel; they are, in
fact, the most economical medicine in . the
world; for one pill, the cost of which is one
cent, will purge some constitutions equal to an
ounce of salts. Tbey ale the poor man's medi
cine. It is to him who has small means, and
who has a young family depending upon bin
for support that tbeir worth is evident. Those
who can afford to have a doctor and be sick a
month, can do so; but all cannot have this
high privilege : children would starve. Bran
dretb's Pills are the medicine for tbe poor man,
and for tbe sensible rich. But the simple, the
ignorant, the learned, prejudiced man, who
shall save him, if he is really attacked with a
dangerous disease lie will die I for the reme
dies of physicians are of no value in cases of
absolute danger, as all the friends of those who
are gone know. Let the truth be spoken
sometimes. Yet again it is said use no purga
tives, use no medicine which evacuates the
bowels. And yet Mr. T. was purged and
griped; be was almost in convulsions; He took
four Brandreth Pills and drank plentifully of
barley water, and he recovered next day. Mr.
G. was sick in the course of four months seve

true that several cases of severe diarrhoea have

relied upon the Brandreth Pills.
I have the strongest testimony of their bene

I -of tiveness may be considered the first symp
tom; diarrhoea with constant flying pains in
the bowels, the next symptom; dysentery with
constant seated pains, the next; and the
malignant form is present when these pains
become cramps. Now, these Brandreth Pills,
used in view of prevention, may save all the
above trouble; they remove the costiveness, I
and if pains in the bowels continue, you use

Should diarrhoea set in, you still ose tbe pills
once or twice a day, drinking the same kind
beverage; and the same course is to be fol
lowed if the disease runs into dysentery, either
before or after the pills have been taken; for
that can be elaimed for the pills is that they
cure and generally prevent an attack; but
tbe poison of the malignant dysentery has
been already received into the system, then all
wa can do is to blunt its powers for evil.
Tbis we can do; and I pledge mi word, if the
are used with ordinary discretion in any
these prevailing bowel disorders, toe commu

Memphis, Tenn July, 1850,
The Faculties, for intellectual abilities,
moral worth and professional acquirements,
will compare favorably with tbe most distin
guished in our country, Tbe medical faculty
constitutes an anomaly in this or any other
country all of them are able lecturers and tbe
best of teachers.
Those who will contemplate our geographi.
cal position, and the extent of our population,
can have no doubt as to the eligibility of our
situation for an enterprise of tba kind. As
to health, including all seasons of the year, ws
denv that any other city has more.
A common error rxists in tbe minds of many
students relative to tbe place or studying med
icine; thoxe who intend practicing among the
diseases of the West and South should cer
tainly educate theBsselves at a school whose
Faculty are practically acquainted with those
That the public may be satisfied of the per
manency of this school, we feel it our duty to
state, that the Trustees and Faculty form a
cit in action, which augurs well for its future
success; and that the peculiar internal orgsni
zation which connects them, cannot be Inter
rupted. E. W. M. KING,
rresident or the Memphis Institute.

Hobeusack's Worm Syrup.
MEDICINE has ever obtained a
gher or more deserved reputa-
tion than Hobeksack's Worm Svatir;
it is daily effecting some of the most
astonishing ard wonderful cures that
have ever been recorded in the annals
We would that the public should
know that a remedy is at hand that can
be relied upon in the most extreme ca
ses where worms are the primary cause
of their suffering. And thoee that are
pining away a miserable existence, un
der the supposition that they are dys
peptic, when Worms are actually prey
ing upon the Tery vitals of their life,
should use Ilobensack 's Worm Syrup
ere it is too late.
Evidence certifying to the wonderful
efficacy of Ilobensack 'a Worm Syrup
in expelling worms, and a Mother's
grief changed to joy by Us use,
Ibis is to certify, that two or three
weeks past, two of my children, were at
tacked with worms. ( used every reoie
dy I knew, but without effect, they yet
growing worse, until the disease essoined
sn alarmingly fatal character, that I and
all who saw them, felt assured that death
oiuai soon ciose tne scene, it relief was
not soon obtained. One of them presen
ted a Tearful picture of suffering; she was
literally alive with worms, her couple
nance had a pallid, death-like hue, her
breath extremely offensive, bar frame
wnre dow a to mere skeleton, and all tbe
symptoms attendant upon worm of a
highly aggravated atate. To such a fear
lul extent did the disease arrive, that sbe
passed worms from her nose, followed by
copious bleeding. At tbis time I obtained
bottle of yoor Worm Syrup, and gave
with but little hope, hot wonderful te
ay, after a few doses, a great change
was perceptible, and in a few days te my
great joy and wonder, the two children
passed a large wash basin foil of worms.
Sinee that time they rapidly recovered,
