medicine*. and a short time ago I commenced using your article to J
test it for m vwif.
Tho result ha* been ho very #ali factory that I am very glad I did ho,
and Injustice to you, an well a- for tin) encouragement of other* who j
may be a gray as I was, but who having my prejudice without my (
r?\isoiis (l?r getting it aside, are unwilling to give your Ib-.-torntive u (

for several years, caused, 1 sup|>o*o, from a slight burn when I was
$ quite an infant. 1 have been using your Hair Restorative for six
j weeks and 1 llud that 1 have a One bead of hair now growing, after having

receiving its benefit. 1 have tried other prejuirations without any

,r | tho consideration of the consular nnd diplomatic appro- ; "
i priation bill. Several minor amendments wore adopted,
,il ; one of thorn being to Htijke out the appropriation for a
| consul at Hjinodur in <lapan
Mr (.'MY moved to stilko out. the appropriation of ,
,(100 to enable tho President to carry into effect tho ! v
not of Congress of March ,'t, 1810, and any subse- ?
; ipient acts now in force for tho suppression of tiio slave !
1 trade, and insert $45,000 in lieu thereof. Mr. said :i
d tliu thirty thousand dollars weie expended in food and I
clothing nnd education for the negroes who had been ^
taken from captured slavers nnd returned to Africa. Ho
.,i had refused to vote for the agricultural college hill, deem- '
uf ing it without any warrnut from the constitution for tho
r government to expend its moans in educating white peo- ; s,
,, pie, ami ho could see no reason why we should educate ;u
i negroes.
'' i Mr. H1UIWN thought it was n it an act of humanity 3|
by any means to send back these negroes. 'Their eondition
would lie much better here than it would in Africa ; ,
they would he delighted to remain here, for, in tholr own !
11 country, instead of being kidnanpod freemen, they wero 1
ransomed sjuvc_ and convicts. They were, however, not
allowed to remain, but they wore seized, put on slri[>board
and sent out of the country, and now Congress is
asked to foot the bill, without even Hie shadow of authority
from the constitution. jje thought it would he I
pincli bcttyr (o repeal the lav\ of p'1(1.
\fr. MVNTFP did not see how objection could Is' made ' a
to this item, f"Y the money had been expended under a t
contract mad'' I'Y the President with the Colonization i
Society to take care of those returned Africann The
President was authorised bv tlie law of ]ftin to provide

jj President was bound to remove the negrien; and what | tl
were we to do w ith them to cast them on shore in their , o
r own land to perish ' Although he did not see that there j li
was any express power given 1>y the vpmdUution to rstuh- | d
lish a school for thrfl\, or empower nnylmdy else to do it, | b
is yet, if (honov.prto oppress (lie -.layc trade was conxti j a

i eminent to give them temporary support ; and who Is to*| it
I judge how long that shall last ? if it Is not iineonstltn j U
i (tonal to Rnp|iort t liemone day, or one week, we have jn*t ol
as inueli authority for maintaining them a year. Tidily W
thon-and dollars have Iwen expended for this lyuppyic and p
woithy object ; and as for education, it was tly mgld that h

" the Interior of Africa, perhaps, to places that have never II
been explored. Wo cannot do that ; we must return fi
! them somewhere on the coast, and it is but just that wo ta

'' : Mr. KI'JiSENDKN remarked that if these Africans were t(
; to lie returned to tin; places from which they were ta
- i ken, tlicy must lie put into the barracoom of the sluveI
dealers on tlio coast of Africa, where t?.?>y would only lie c<
j sold over again into sh>\e?y. "liiere was no humanity
about that ill nil.
Mr. KtASON said that tlio President was bound tu .?ory J

tin now existing in the southern States to an extent that
.ill secure such a natural increase of slave labor as will
ultice for production. This was to be obtained, not from
d'rica, but by natural increase and intercourse with tlm
juthcin States.
Mr. DOOLI'iTLK was glial to iind that he had mlsttu
crstood the remarks of the senator, lie went on at
onsiderable length to discuss the subject of slavery.
.Mr. I'UOH suggested to hiin that if lie wanted the bill

Mr. DOOLI'ITLK accepted the suggestion, and waived
art her remark.
Afr. (T.AV briefly replied, and read doeuincnts toproic
bat Liberia had been a failure.
Mr. WILSON referred to secret organizations in the
outh to reopen the slave trade, and stated thai he be
ieved it was impossible in some places to get a grand jurv
o convict, a man of Hint crime. He bail been informed by
. gentleman who was formerly a member of tVngr
hat lie was Kuiprised at the unanimity of foiling anion,
lie people of the (Julf States in favor of the reopening r-V
he slaie trade.
Mr. HAMMOND had no doubt but that there were
rune people who wished to reopen it -; but front tho in
intuition be hod received, lie thought that nine-tenth ;
t tho people of the Routh were utterly opposed to it ;
ud the more the question was discussed, the fewer would
here be in favor of the reopening of that trade. As to
be remark about grand juries not convicting, be would
aforru the senator that dinlmr the last we -k the Lrmod
uries in both Charleston and Havana ill had found true bills

Jiiean slave trade.
Mr. WIIJ90N was glad to hear that such were tbo sen
iiiRiils of the senator from South Carolina, and he had
