Wc don't know any place where the true
spirit of Irish music, tender and mournful as in the Lament of an Orphan Girl, is more ade quately expressed m words, than in this song. In that respect, at least, rt is quite perfect. OH! MY BIRD—from the Irish. Air—44 The Culinn.*’ Oh! nry bird of the white breast, and soft swelling form, Thou cans’t not cling near amidst the wild storm ; Thy sweet voice of music would falter and die, ’Neath the darkness and cold of the sod winter sky. The bright fluttering plumes thou art used to unfold. ’Mid fair summer flowers and warm skies of gold. Would fall 'neath the drenching rain shatter’d and torn— Tbo’ my fond circling arms should not leave thee forlorn. Oh ! the place of our rest, was it not calm and fair! And now by tho spoiler’s dark hand 'tie laid bare— No more shall we rove iir the hazel shades green. Where the strawberry buds in their beauty are seen. Far from me thou must wander, until the mild spring. Shall sort-budding blossoms and gentle airs bring; Thou cans’t not bo near me, oh ! lov’d as thou srr, Tho’ my nest shall be warm in the depths of my heart. PAPA ! WHAT IS -THE SAXON.” The tyrant that came o’er the sea, my child, To fetter the fearless and free, my child— Whose murderous band Spread woe through our land, Leaving sorrow and serfslup for thee my child ! In the hour of trial our bane, rny child— He came, and as yet doth remain, my child, Ha ! the b ood hound before Lapped full of our gore, And he growlu for the blood-gorge again, my child ! Blit the millions, divided so long, my child. Now fierce in the hatred of wrong, my child, With front to the foe, * Are eager to show The deeds of the valiant and strong my child ! Come tyrany's wrath when it may, my child, We've a chief whom we trust and obey, my child Let the contest assume Or glory or gloom, Thy sire siiall be first in the fray, rny child.

It is the object of the teacher to communicate instruction in eith er a part or the whole of the studies required for admission into the Freshman class of the Uni veraily. These studies, as may be seen by ref erence to the publication of the Faculty, are, English Grammar. Arithmetic, and Geography. Four Books of Ctesar’s Gallia War; The Bn. colics of Virgil, and six books ol the iEneid ; Sallust, and several of Cicero’s Orations; Ja Cobs’ Greek Reader, and Latin Prosody. Particular attention is paid to Elementary Principles; and Reading Writing, and Spell mg, logellier with a daily exercise in the Sa cred Scriptures, are, by no means, neglected. Email boys are not to be considered as exclu ded. On the contrary, it is desirable to have them, in order that they may be taught, from the first, according to the method most approv ed by the subscriber. The price of tuition is reduced to that of ele veil dollars a quarter of eleven weeks each, to be paid at the end of every quarter,at which time a vacation of two weeks is usually allowed.

Mr. Furman has been for six years encaged in his present employment; and during this time, he has sent a number of students to this institution, j who, if not always perfectly prepnred for admission, have, nevertheless, in no case, brought from him any test’inoninls which their attainments would riot justify. It is characteristic of him to state, with the utmost frankness, to all whom it may concern, what he believes to be the progress made by the f upils under his charge. As an able, honest, and faithful teacher, the Fac. ulty of this University, therefore, very willingly say, that they know no one moie deserving than Mr. Furman, of the confidence of the public.

THIS Iiixtitu'ion commenced its second ses sion the second Monday in March, and the operations of the Institution have been very much mil arraased on account of the absence of the regular agent, and the losses in subscrip- j lions, &c. It gives us great pleasure to state that the friends of the Institution have not for saken it, but have liberally co-operated with tile Principal ill liquidating its debt, and making preparatory arrangements to commence the second session. I he second session will end the last of July, allowing the pupils to spend August and September at their homes. Ten pupils will be instructed at present, and it is believed the school will gradually increase as it becomes more and more extensively known. As this Institution is intended toembiace all the branches taught in academies for seeing persons, the Principal hag engaged the ser vices of teachers of experience and thoroughly acquainted with all the branches in this 111. stuution. Mr. T. S. NEVVEI.I., a graduate of the Ohio Institution for the ltlind, will act as Pro fessor of Vocal and Instrumental Music. Mr. 11. CHAPIN, as Ptofessor of the Arts and Sciences. Instruction v, ill be given as soon as practi. cable, to a select class by the Principal in Ancient and Modern History, Literature, Slc. The Teachers just mentioned, devote their services to the Institution at a very moderate salary being actuated mure by the interest they feel for thblind, tlian any pecuniary consid eration. The following course of study and regulations have been adopted tor the present session: The Scholars are required to rise at the ringing of the bell at half post 5 o'clock in the Morning : from (i to 7, instruction in Vocal Music; breakfast at 7; prayers immediately' afur breakfast; from tha: lime till 8, the girls are engaged in arranging the rooms; horn quarter past 8 to quarter past 6, Arithmetic; from half-past 9 to half.paat JO, English Gram mar; three quarters past 10 to three quarters past 11, reading tic raised prim ; from 12 lo 1 Geography and Writing; dine at 1. In the Afternoon Ihe girls are engaged in learniug to make fancy works: instruction on the(Piano, and raised print ure attended to till 6 o'clock P. M., at which time the pupils lake supper: prayets immediately after aupper. Pupils are expected to attend church, and are taken to whatever church they wish to attend in the city. From 2 to 4, on the sabbath, the pupils will be as ■embled to hear reading of sacred history, or a lecture from some interesting passage ot scripture, calculated to direct their thoughts to a perusal of the hible. ll)<! rrinc.'poi would here slate that the In stitution is entirely dependent for support on individual contributions; notwithstanding this, if its patronage sliuuld be equalo that received during the Inst year, there will be no difficulty in going on ; and as our agent, whose family has been ill, is expected soon, he will be re quested to visit nil the counties in the Slate, for the purpose of laying the subject before the citizens generally. The cost to those who are able to pay will be $150 per year; and as many indigent blind, will be received and educated as the funds re ceived will support, we request the editors of the diHerent papers who may read this adver tisement, to insert it in their columns. The Principal of this Institution would be obliged to persons having children or relatives i blind, to write immediately, stating the age, capacity, circumstances, Sic., wisl.mg to le ccive a situation.

Congress at its last aossion, through the Joint Library Committee of thd two Houses, having authorized a large subscription for the Congressional Globe and Appeedix; and thu Senate, by resolution, having directed the mode of preparing the reports of its proceedings, and authorized the Secretary of the Senate to contract with the undersigned, stipulating that the reports when| written out shall be subject to the revision of the speakers, the Congres sional Globe and Appendix is now ottered to the public, not only asBn authentic, but as an official report of the proceedings of Congress, made under the eye, and published by authority of the body. The undersigned originated the mode of jour nalizing the proceedings of Congress, which, ; thus adopted, is to be perfected with the aid and under the supervsion of Congress. Their publication was the first and only one that gave each successive step in every measure in both i branches of Congress ; a brief of'all the debates; every important vote ; and an Appendix, inclu i dmg at full length all the revised speeches do i livered during the session. The work, as it is now to be conducted by them, will be lounil a'most perfect political his tory. The Senators from the States and the Representatives fro.n every section of the l/nion bring with them into Congress a knowledge of the feelings, sentiments, and interests of their several constituencies. Public opinion and the public information, as it exists among those they represent, are embodied by thorn ; and in the crucible of Congress the wisdom of our times is brought to its test, and is there con centrated, in directing the political movements of the whole country. The impu'ses thus giv en through Congress from every quarter react upon the nation as a whole, and all its compo nent parts are made to move in cooperation. The press cannot be more usefully employed than in condensing and again spreading abroad the intelligence of our free country, tending to sucli happy results through our almost miracu lously adjusted State and National institutions. Having identified ourselves with the plan of advancing the usefulness of Congress by pub lishing full and unpnrtial reports, and having a large mass of the Congrensional Globe and Appendix, issued during the last twelve years, which would be impaired in value to iis and utility to the public if the work were discontin ued, we have a double motive to prompt us to exiend it through a new series. W e are re solved, if possible, to give it permanence, and to hand it down to successors as u standard work, worthy of being maintained and improv ed. VVe shall enter upon our new undertaking without being distracted or burdened by any associate labors of the press ; and, thus encum bered, shall hope 10 make the new series a step in advance of the former in all points of execu tion. With a view to accomplish this, we shall he (one or the oilier) in attendance on Con. gress. The reports will not be affected by our party i bios. We believe every member of Congress I will bear witness that our reports are full and j fair. I lie Congressional Globe is made op of the daily proceedings of the two Houses of Congress, and printed on superfine double royal paper, with small type, (brevier and nonpareil,) in quarto form, each number containing sixteen royal quarto pages. The speeches of the inom beis, in this fiist form, are condensed—the full report of the prepared speeches being reserved tor the Appendix. All resolutions, motions, and other proceedings, arc given in the form of the Journals, with the yeas and nays on every im portant question. The Appendix is made up of the President’s Annual Message, the reports of the principal of ficers of the Government that accompany it, and all speeches of members of Congress writ, ten ou', or revised by themselves, it is printed in the same form as the Congressional Globe, and usually makes about the same number of pages during a session. During the first month or six weeks of a ses sion, there is rarely more business done than will make two numbers a week—one of the Congressional Globe and one of the Appendix ; but during the remainder of a session, there is usually sufficient matter for two or three num bers of each every week. The next session will be unusually interesting; therefore, we calcu late that the Congressional Globe and Appen dix together will make near 1500 large qu.irlo pnges, printed in small type—brevier and non pareil. We furnish complete Indexes to both at the end of a session. We have on hand the Congressional Globe and Appendix for the last fifteen sessions of Congress, making together fifteen large royal quarto volumes, which we will sel',- unbound, lor $41 ; nr bound, with Russia backs and corn ers, for $5(5. Those who want the back vo'umcs should apply for them immediately, as they are in demand- Congress subscribed for 341 com. pletescts during til9 two last sessions. The proceedings of Congress for the last nine years cannot be procured from any other source— Gales fit Seaton having stopped printing their Register of Debates in 1"37. VVe will endeavor to print a sufficient num ber of surplus copies to supply all that may be miscarried, or lost in the mails; but, subscri bers should be veiy particular to file tluir pa pers carefully, for fear that we should dot be able to supply all the lost numbers.

The rules ot the General Post Office Depart ment authorized such receipts to be given, and paid here, when the amount does not exceed glO.

The Post master's receipt should ba sent directed to us, and not to the Postmaster of this city, as some ► persons arc in the habit of doing. The money should be here by the 7th of December, at fartii est, to procure all the numbers. If not here by that time, we may not be able to furnish the first numbers.

JOHN C. MOORE, C. C .C. Oct 6, 1840, (Pr’s fee (HI) 3t 5| Executed it this Office with nestnees & despatch. To I lie People. Tho session of Congress, which is shout to terminate, will belong and gratefully remem bered by all true republicans far the triumphant success of many of their cherished principles and measures. While we heartily rejoice at the triumph of the principles which it has been our constant effort to advocate and defend ; and from which no prosperity, no adversity, can swerve us ; we cannot be unmindful of the at titude in which we are placed by a recent vote of both housed of Congress :—we allude to the contemplated withdrawal of their patronage from the newspaper press. To this decision we cheerfully bow, sensible as we are ot the pa triotic motives which have led to it. But we trust that this decision of Congres* increased rather than diminishes our claim to the support of a higher power—that of the people ; and to them we confidently appeal to aid us, by their patronage, in sustaining at the seat of govern ment a journal that is inflexible devoted to their interest and the true interests of the country. It is known to every one, that the chief source of sustaining a newspaper is not the magnitude of its subscription list, so much as the advertis ing patronage which maybe bestowed upon it. In large commercial cities, indeed, the latter is usually the concomitant of the former, as it be comes the obvious interest ot mercantile men to advertise in those papers which are the most extensively circulated. Washington, however, is differently situated. Depriving of the adver tising patronage incident to a mercantile com munity, and burdened with peculiar and enor mous expenses which are not elsewhere incur red, Homing but a very long list of subscribing patrons cull sustain a paper in usefulness—if, indeed, even in existence. Tlie proprietors of the “Union” have hitherto spared no pains, and no expense, to make their paper worthy of the metropolis, and worthy of the support of that great party under whose banner they are enlist ed. In publishing the most full and ample de bates of the two houses of Congress, it is be lieved, ever before attempted on Hub continent in a daily newspaper, they have secured the ser vices ofthe best reporters which the country afforded, but at the enormous cost of $12,000 or $15,000 per year. Their extensive foreign and domestic correspondence is another large item of expense, but the instructive usefulness of which is so highly commended and apprecia ted as to justify almost any outlay to attain it. Still, it must be evident that these heavy expen ses cannot be borne, unless the subscription list is commensurate to the undertaking; and al though we can boast of 15,000 subscribers, (in cluding daily, tri weekly, and weekly,) yet this list must be still considerably enlarged to enable the proprietors of the “Union” to sustain all its usefulness, and to insure them against pecuni ary loss. Invoking, then, again, the aid and support of all true friends of republican gov ernment, and pledging ourselves to renewed efforts in the cause of the glorious principles wc cherish, we offer the following proposals : THE DAILY “UNION” Will be published, as heretofore, at $10 per annum, payable in advance. Its character hith erto has been almost exclusively political. We purpose in future to devote a portion of its col umns to domestic news of general interest, and to miscellaneous literature, which, without im paring its political influence, may render it the more acceptable to an extended class of read 6r9 THE “SEMI.WEEKLY UNION” Will be published every Monday and Thurs day, during the recess of Congress, at $5 per annum. This contains all the matter contained in the "Daily Vnion," except local advertise ments. During the sessions of Congress three numbers, instead of two, will be issued, without any ex'ra charge to subscribers. The Uiiliirgcmciit of (lie Weekly Union. . THE “WEEKLY UNION” Is issued every Saturday ; and as arrange ments arc in progress to enlarge it to near dou ble it* present size, we shail soon be enabled to give nearly every article which may appear in the daily and semi weekly editions, at the ex tremely low rate of $2. We propose also to give, in this edition, a complete synoptical sum mary ofthe proceedings in both houses of Con gress thus rendering the “Weekly Union, a most valuable channel of information to all classes of our country. But, to remunerate us for this enterprise, an extensive subscription list is absolutely indisperisible. We seize this opportunity to add that some delay has taken place in putting our paper to press, which has prevented its early delivery to our readers, and consequently circumscribed its circulation. We shall make arrangements to remedy this defect, and to obviate this objection. After the present week we trust that no com plaint will be made upon this subject. CONGRESSIONAL REGISTER. In audition to the foregoing, we have resolved to publish; during the session of the national legislature, a "Congressional Register," to be issued weekly, and to contain a full report of the daily proceedings and debates of both houses. Indeed, the arrangements which we have made with the very best corps of reporters will enable us to give even more full and extend ed reports than we have produced during this session, superior as we clnim them to be to any preceding ones.

CUMMINGS, .Sen,, August 3d, 1846. tf39. DR. SPENCER’S Vegetable Tonic and restorative Health—“ The poor man’s riches — The rich man's b/iss." THE Pioprictor of this Medicine, actuated by a desire to benefit his fellow beings, offers to the Public the result of an extensive practice and a thorough investigation of the laws which govern the human system. lie is well aware of the odium which is at tached by Physicians to all remedies, the com position of which they are not acquainted with, yet he is not satisfied to withhold this valuable medicine knowing that it will stand the test of experience, and that those who use it, will not have occasion to complain that it has not bene fitted them. He is fully satisfied, that these Bitters require only to become known, to be universally appreciated and extensively used. For it cannot be denied by those who have be. come acquainted with their singular virtues, that they possess a pre-eminence over all others now in use, for the diseases which they profess to cure. In proof of their extraordinary curative pro. pertics, upwards of One Thousand Certif icates, from the most respectable Citizens in different sections ofthe Union, might be appen ded ; but the high reputation which my Vegeta ble Pills, (known as Spencer's Veoetable Pills; have acquired, is all sufficient to recom mend my Bitters to the special notice of the afflicted. They are purely Vegetable and may be ta ken with perfect safely by all ages and sexes in youthful, adult and declining life. They Cure Dyspepsia and Liver Com plaints by cleansing the stomach and bowels of every thing injurious to health, regulating the various secretions ; and by their manifest and sensible action upon the chyle, they purify the blood, invigorate the circulation, strengthen the digestive organs, and produces healthy ac tion, throughout the system ;—Loss of Appe tite, Heartburn, Headache, Flatulency, Palpita. tion of the Heart, Restlessness, III Temper, Languor and Melancholy, which are the usual symptoms of Dyspepsia and Liver Complaint, will all disappear as a natural consequence oi its cure. They not only Lure LTyspepsia and Liver Complaint, but they have almost a miraculous effect in curing Sick Headache, and all Ner vous Affections. They are peculiarly adapted to remove all these complaints, not bv constant ly physicing, hot by strengthen.ng the system. No greater mistake can be made than to sup pose that Dyspepsia, or any other disease ari sing from debility, can be cured by frequent for ced action on the buwels with purgative medi cines, without having a proper tonic Ufaccom pany them. When these complaints exist, the system is already too weak, and every addition al dcse tends to make it more so. Spencer's Vegetable Pills possess tonic and restora live properties independent of their purgative effects, and are believed to be the only purga live Pill in existence that possess these impor tant properties. Spencer'r Bitters also ac ting as a still more effective tonic and restora tive, strengthen the digestive organs, and as sist them to perform their functions a9 nature designed. Hence they are found to be effica cious also in those Diseases peculiar to Fe males, which arise more frequently from weak ness than any other cause. The aged and in firm of both sexes, and persons of sedentary habits prone to costiveness, and those who have suffered from loss of appetite, have experienced great benefit from them. In Convalescence from Fevers, and other acute disorders, they restore strength ; and individuals afflicted with Nervous Headache and other derangements of the nervous function have been entirely cured by this medicine In Fever and Ague and Chills and Fever, they surpass every thing known in rooting out the last seeds of this worst of maladies. The Proprietor has known hundreds of cases, from six to twelve months standing, who had used almost every thing they could think of, but were cured only for a few days at a time, when the chill would again return, but who have been entirely cured by using this Medicine, and have declared it to be the most sovereign and last ing remedy they evey heard of. In fact the Proprietor has never known them to fall curing the very worst cases when used according to the directions. By removing the local inflammation from the muscles and ligaments of the joints, these Pills and Bitters have been known to cure Rheuma tism, permanently in two weeks. For Worms, they are superior to any of the common vermifuge medicines, as they prevent that cold state of the stomach, and dislodge from the bowels all the slimy matter to which these creatures adhere. Aiso jisthma, by re lieving the lungs and air vessels from the mucus which even slight colds will occasion, which ir not removed becomes hardened and producef this disagreeable disease. Diarhaa, Dyeinte ry, and Cholic, by removing all those bad hum ors by which these complaints are occasioned, and by their singular action on the secretions os the mucous membrane. Scrofula, Scurvy, VI eers and Inveterate Sores, by the power they exert in purifying the blood and all the springs and channels of life. Scorbutit Eruptions and Bad Complexion by their alterative effect upon thefluidsthat feed the skin, the morbid state of which occasions all eruptive complaints; Sal tote. Cloudy, and other disagreeable Complex, tone. The qse of the Pills and Bitters for a very short lime, will make an entire cure Erysipelas, Salt Rheum, and a striking improi nient in the clearness of the skin. The woi cases of Common Colds and Influenza will m< always yield to one or two doses of the Pit A And as a remedy for that distressing inalat the Piles, too much cannot be said in their I® vor, for by using this medicine in very mod rate doses, it has been known to cure the woi ot cases, and that too, of those who had tri almost every oilier remedy that could be pr scribed within the whole compass of the Mat rie Medieie. Females who value good health, should ne er be without Spencer's Pills and Bitters, they purify the blood, remove obstructions, ai ■ give the skin a beautiful, clear and healthy a ■ ) pearance. Elderly Persons make it a rule to tali them 2 or 3 times a week, by which they r : move the causes that produce disease, presen their health, and keep off the infirmities i age. Heads or Families should Alwas keep th Medicine in the house, as a remedy in cases ■ sudden illness, for by iheir immediate adminit tration, Cholera Morbus, Diarrhaa, Choli, Gout in the Stomach, Cramps, Spasms, Feser and other alarming complaints, which ofie profe fatal, may be speedily cured or prevri ted. All that is required of those who use ’thi Medicine is to use it strictly according to th directions, it is not by any thing the proprie tor himself may say in their favor that he hope: gain credit. It is alone by the result of i fair trial. DR. HULL’S VEGETABLE FEVER &-AGUE, AMD AMTI-FEVER PILLS The following certificate was given by ihrei highly respectable Planters, near Fife Post Office, Talladega County, Ala., one of whnn had used twelve boxes of the pills in hia uwt family.

VVc could no doubt have dirpo sed of three hundred boxes, if we had them, ns it was uncommonly sick in this vicinity last season. So far as we could learn, (and we made pni'icular inquiry,) they did not fail in curing a single case, when used according to directions. Some of our most respectable planters used them in preference to Snppington’s Pills. Please send us two hundred and twenty.four boxes, and very much oblige, respectfully yours, RIX & KENDALL.

New Terms of Advertising. The accumulation on our books of debts due us in other comities, and in other States; anp the great difficulty attendant upon their collec tion—to say nothing of the tax thereby imposed on us, and the losses we are forced to sustain, by many of our distant debtors neglecting to send us the amounts they may severally owe_ forces on us the necessity of adopting a mode of computing the cost of publications to be made in our columns, which can be easily under stood, and winch will enable our patrons to en close, with their advertisements, the money to pay for them. Our new terms will not vary, materially, from the old ones; and where there is sny change it will be found to be in ftvor of the advertiser :—For example, we prOpoae to make 80 words, or less, one square ; more than 80, and less than 160 two squares; more than 160, and leas than 240 three squares, &c. Under the old system the square averages about 75 words. The price of advertising will not be changed; the change in the mode or computing the quan tity of matter in advertisements, is adopted *pa cially with a view to relieve ourself from the evils of the credit system. These rules, we propose, shall apply in ail jases where the persons making publication re tide out of this city, except they be Eherlftii, Coroners, Registers In Chancery, Clerks or Court, or other public officers. Where we open en account witb officers of court and others of that class, we reserve to our self the right to charge the old, prices.
