"One feature of his feebleness is that ho
cannot support himhclf alone, and is not al
lowed to walk, even with the support of o
thrrs. Dr. Jackson told him recently that
if ho stood prect ha would faint, and that if
heshnild faint he would breathe no moro.

not be at all disappointed if we have to re
cord two "fizzles" one at tho' Baltimore
Convention, the other upon our Canals.
This, it must be remembered, is the day, da
ring which all the railroad bridge in our
State over the Canals, was to come down,
either voluntarily or Involuntarily. This
was the order of the Board of Publia Works,
but we are of the opinion that the Board
will "come down." Let them hereafter con
fi no themselves to abating those hridges
which seriously interfere with the navigation
of our canals, if any such there should be,
and instead of being compelled to depend u li
on the Stateman and its copyists for a very
lame defence, they will be sustained by the
people of all parties. So much for the
Board. - - ' '
In regard to the Baltimore Convention,
weknow of. no man, whom they can nomi

take it for granted that the great body of
Whigs will fight side by sideand shoulder to
shoulder in the coming contest, and in this
cventthe party can win the field. It is prob
able that we will have some intelligence of
the preliminary action of the Convention
before we go to press, A nomination will
hardly be made to-day.
