G!o!e translates a passage, the conclusion of which
we copy, and which as the Globe remarks, "seems to
us to be very eloquent and pathetic."
"Twenty times have pocieties been formed around
me and have been dissolved. The impossibility of j
t'ivmg length and durability to human tics, ihe "dumb
f 'nctfulness" that awaiis us, the impenetrable silence
t.at hovers around our tomb and then soon over our

? j-Tiio Goshen Democrat, one of the strongest
P'-f ?rs in t2 northern pt:t of Fiis Slrte, copies ihf
recent letter of JueVe ChauiL rlajti on the subject of
l'v?ry in the new territories, and appends to it the
f.ii lowing comments :
'In now assuming this position the democracy of j
Indiana have sacrificed no principle whatever. Had!
tie;t. Cass been elected, the doctrine of non-inlciTcr- !
rice laid down in lis Nicholson letter, would have '
been the policy adopted, and would have efleciuallv
excluded Slavery from the New Territories. And
th:t consummation we believe was ardently desired liy !
the Northern Democracy, as by those who claimed to ;
be the exclusive ndvocates of Free Soil.
"Kut the election of Gen. Taylor, the repiffcnta
1 1 r of the slave power, puts p no. her phase upon the
imtter. flis partisans all contend hit Conires has
tii" power to legislate upon the subject, md hisouih-!
n constituents demaiul tlint such Ugisl.njon shall ho
f.r the extension of slavery. And whaiever douMs !
we may have of the propriety of congressional inter- j
ference. t.here is no rc-isting the cii'.lusion hat 'r is i
the will of the people that the question be scllled by
I 'onjrress.
"How then shall it bo settled, mid what shall be the
character of such legislation? We can not for a mo
ment hesitate. We have no compromises to make
w ith slavery, and we shall opiw.se the surrender of a (
?mgle inch or the virgin soil of the new territories to
the foul embrace of the peculiar institution. The slave!
power nnd the whig party have formed an nllinncc in
the person of Zachary Taylor, nnd we wishlhe-n much
joy in their new relations. I'ut from nil suHi combi
nations, from nil such interests, the Democracy of
Indiana wash their hands, henceforth and forever."

on Saturday lii, found a large cluster of tools, of

roots, until his earthly career whs closed in the most

Lockjaw. A writer in ;he Ilaltimore Sun, gives

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-

to rouse the energies of the system.
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
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

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.

Cases of ibis kind are constantly occurring, which
the law never touches. Ai least one person was thus

Hon tax, 5rtl,."0. 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! Decide! Only decide! Such is the
French idea ot government, and such will it be, until
