Satisftd Jlmbition. Senator Borland,
tinhts late reply to the challenge of the
Hon. T. B. Flournoy, at Little Bock, said
that, he was "sufficiently shot at in the
- war with Mexico to satisfy the ambition
of any nan." ', , , .
21s! A very sensible reply from Sena-
tor Borland, and a tnuch stronger exhibi
tion of true; courage than vie see put for
ward by our public men,, now a-days.
He might very truly have replied in the
'' language of the anecdote which we pub
lished the other day, that "any fool could
, give a challenge, but it takes two to light
a duel." In thus refuting' to make a fool
of himself, he hat given the best evidence
that Jie is a man of genuine courage.

Mr. White on hi trip in, experienced
considerable severe weather but upon the
whole,the trip was a pleasant a could be
expected at this season of the year.
But few Indian were seen upon the
plains except Kansas, Osages, &c, who
appeared perfectly friendly.

but little importance, further than all kinds
of goods were selling at reduced rates, and

quarrel, io which knive were freely used.
L. mi. Masmiigton, civu sou military
cotmnaudant of New Mexico, arrived at
Santa Fe on the 10th ult., from Monterey,
by way of Chihuahua. He was well re
ceived. Col. Washington left Monterey,
in July last, with a command, part of
which, was destined for California. They
pursued their march without molestation,
and, indeed, receiving the hospitality of
the Mexicans, until their arrival at Chi
huahua ; where, after making all neces
sary arrangements, the command, on the
4th of September, seperated, Col. Wash
ington pursuing hi route to Santa Fe;
and Maj. Graham assuming the command

oons, and two campanies of the 1st, under
the command of Capt. Rucker. The dis
tance which they had (o march is set down
at 1300 miles. The distance from Chi
huahua to Santa Fe is stated a 1200 miles,
and the average march per day to Chihua
hua is set down at 20 miles, and thence to
Santa Fe 17 1-2 miles.
The Republican contains the proceedings
of a Convention of delegate's of the peo
ple of New Mexico, "to form a constitu
tion, and apply to Congress for a State or
Territorial Government, and to do s'icli
other acts as to them my seem for the in

The steamer rfcadia arrive:l
at Boston yesterday, having left
Liverpool on the 4th inst. She
brings seven days later intelli

Accounts to the 2Sth October,
from Berlin, state that every in
ducement to a surrender of the
city had failed, and that the wa
ter and gas pipes supplying the
city, were cut off by the troops
who were, besieging it.
Reports were currentthat the
Italian difficulties had been set

termined to support a motion to
postpone the election of rresi-

Cavaignac opposed the move

will be successful.
The last accounts left affairs
in Austria doubtful. Vienna
was bombarded, and the slaugh
ter was great. There is a chance
for a peaceful termination of the
crisis in Italy.
It was rumored at Vienna that
it had been decided in case the
Imperial Bank of Vienna should
be pillaged, the notes should be
declared of no value. Measures
also have been taken to place
the Bank under military guard.

On tho first attack of this disease, the
fauces generally become much inflamed,
soon succeeded by grayish sloughs, which
renders the breath fetidthe parotid and
other glands swell, tumefy and suppurate.
The tongue, teeth and lips are covered
with a brown or blockish incnistatior, the
eyes red and dull, deafness, delirium, co

ly closes the scene. No form of mercury,
nor any medicine that excites the mucus
membranes should ever be given in this
disease, as the inflammation generally
centres in these membranes, particularly
the fauces, parotid and other salivary
glands. The prima via should be imme
diately evacuated, and we know of no
thing so well adapted to this as Dr. Bragg's

Anti-bilious Pills,which operate thorough

ted some oi our best physician", who pro
nounced her rase incurable, or that they
could do no more for her. I tried many
remedies but nne did any (rood. 1 saw
some account of Wistar's Balsam, and
I thought I would try it, but had little iaitli
m it- 1 procured a bottle, which was ad
ministered according to directions, and I
saw she began to mend ; and before the
first bottle was none she was up. ' I pro
cured a second bottle, and she took that,
and now she is, I think, cured, or nearly
so. She attends lo her daily liihor, ami I

which cured me when physician said I
