A writer in ;he Ilaltimore Sun, gives the following as n certain rcuWy, and we copy it Tor what it is worth : When any one runs a nail or any sharp iron into any part of his frame, take a common smoke pike, fill it with tobacco, liht it well, then take n thin cloth or hamlnrii hief, plaro it ocr the howl of the pipe, and blow through the stent in'o the wound; two or three pipe-fulls will be sutiicient to ct the won. id dis charging. I have tried ii on myself and five others, and found it to jive immcdi-ite rilicf. If the wound has been gome days standing, it will open it again, if the tobacco is good. Try it, any one who may chance to get 8iu'li a woui d." The C;ioi.e::a puzzles the doctors everywhere. The New York Academy of Medicine nvrntly held a meeting, a. which t!e subject of contagiousness or non-contaciouMicss of iite epidemic was fully dis cussed, but they broke up without coming to any con cIuion. We nte, therefore, left in theduik on this important matter. The Hon. It. J. Wulker, Secretary of the U. S. Treasury, has recently published a letter on the sub ject of Cholera, iu which he gives the mode of treat ment adopted by Samuel A. Cartwright, of Natchez, Miss., and which, Mr. W. states, was very successful in that neighborhood iu as follows: " 1. To watch the first symptoms of the disease, and administer the proper remedies without a mo ment's del.jy. 12. To administer forthwith after the first symptoms, a dose composed of ten giains of cam phor, twenty grains of red pepper, and iwenty grains of calomel, to be liken in powder if practicable; if not, iu pi Us. . As soon as the doewas swallowed, to st riii ihe patient and i ub htm eently, but effectually, with some sljmulatiii.' ointment, by as many hands us could have convenient access, ihe rubbing to be con tinued so as not to occasion fatigue, until the medi cine produced its proper effect. " The cure was chiefly effected by the operation of the calomel upon the liver, in changing the rice water j secretions lo those usually produced by calomel, which i generally took place, according to my recollection, iu tioui (n to two hours nlier the doc was adminis- . , T, A, , r , . i i . , icreu.

The purpose of the stimulating ointment was to maintain warniih at the surface, lo arrest the coldness of the skin, which is so marked a symptom of the disease, and to keep up the circulation f the blood, and to prevent that set tling of the blond upon the central organs, and its co agulation, causing its resemblance to ; tarry sub stance, which is so marked an accompaniment of the disease. 4 Ccnenlly, the calomel, aided and accelerated in its action by these auxiliaries, produces Ihe proper effect upon ihe liver in from one to two hours, and when this takes place the cure may he considered ef fected. When, however, the pioper nct'nn is not pro duced bv ibis dose in from one to two hours after it Is oo'ii.uifleied. nuci. or smaller nose must be taken, t . . II a. a wlocii very rnrciy i iiis lo prouiii.-e tue pioper ctlect. This is the main treatment of the disease, hul Fr the farther part'culars, I have wri'den to Dr. Cartwright, this day. The success of this treatment was seen by myself and many others, and w as most w onderful." The Asiatic Cholera proves by dissection, the Medi cal Examiner says, lo he Jbe intlHnmati on and uh'er- ation of the various membrane of ihe bowe. The conient? of the stomach ami inleslincs, ferment and putrify, vomiting, and swelling of the abdomen quick- lv follows, and the patient sinks. Dr. Maxwell, of Calcutta, says ho cured himself by copious drafts of effervescent soda powders in cold waiev; that he nf- tet w ards saveil many a life bv the same treatment. He says that no remedy will avail except relieving ihe bowels of the fermenting contents, and if this bo noi done gently, it will be fatal. I.?si.alv'.iitei r.Y V,ccivatiov.

In Virginia lh qualifications are various, much highei than in Massachusetts, and founded upon property. Hence while Massachusetts, with n population of 3 50.000 whiles in 1840, ruft 13."V(H)!) votes in 1843. Virginia will. 700,(H)0 whites in IS 40, cast only 69,000 votes in 1818. Thus 40,000 men are excluded front voting in Virginia, by want of property, most or all of whom would have been ad mitted to vote iu Massachusetts! So in New Jersey, the whites were :)lf.uO0 iu 1840, and the voles 77,000 in 1818, while in North Carolina, Ihe whites wer 010,000 in 1840, nnd the voles only 80,000 in 1818. Urion the basis of New Jersey, the votes of North Carolina should be l0.,000. U'poii the basis of Xoith Cirolina, ihe voles of New Jersey would hnvo been on'y f8.000. Thus we m v, even iu our own coun try, the effect of that aristocratic idea which makes property the principal right of society. In England, thi basis excludes six sevenths of tin.' adult male pop ulation from nil share in tho government which rules them. Properly is a right merely conventional ; Inoiigh ns Ihe inslinei is nanu il, the right lo acquire, hold and enjoy it is natural. Hence the rights of prop, city should lie fully prelected. Hut the rights of life, lilierty, character or feeling, are paramount to those of property, and therefore should tie the liist objects of care, and not the I M, in civil government. The En glish doelrine, that a man without properly has no slake in ihe community, is entirely onplulosophical. He has ihe rights qf life, liberty, character, and the acquisition of property, and therefore is ns much in terested in maintaining government, a, the possessor d millions, and as a general ruh?, is more desirous of maintaining Vcc novernmeut. Dr. Franklin illus t rated this, by the case of the voter owning an as, who lost his franchise ny ihe animal's death. Did the franchise be'ongto the man or the a-s? Another ood feature of this constitution is o ir leg islative body. It is good for France, and would be for every other country in Europe, hut would not be good for us. Much speculation has appeared in Amer ican journals upon this question, some mainlainin? that only one chamber is a great defict in the French system, others Iba, two sue a great evil in our own. Doth seem to oveilook a very imHrtant consideration, the adaptation of institutions to the character and po sitions of nations. The French are impetuous, rash, impulsive, yet obedient to discipline. Tiirouuh cen turies of nulitaiy organization, they are essentially military in character. Hence they require decision, promptitude, energy in government. They net much, and deliberate little. Hence they are not qualified fir delay, doubt, uncertainty, indecision. They can en dure tyranny better than Mispense. Hence they re quire a government that shall AruV, that shall do wrong, rather than do nothing. Not sufficiently vers ed in the practical details of free institutions, yet enthusiastic noon iumx of fier-dmu, ihey will endure desj) dism, if it he democratic. If then, they should have two chambers, checks upon each other, the t'e lays and inceitainties resulting from such organiza tion WonUI place lie'in in danger of frequent distur bances. Decide!
