Progress of the War.— We can no longer
deny that our arms have crossed ih ; frontier, or
that this is a war of invasion. General Taylor
has settled the question, which, while he lay
within his fortified camp, so confused our politi
cians, by taking possession of Metamoras and
Barita. The Mexicans moved off with celerity,
the moment that he commenced the passage of
the river, and, if the accounts are correct, have
not been seen in force since.
The battles of the Bth and9th ult., the poor de
vils fought under the most desperate circumstan
ces. Th-y had but one day’s rations left, and
Arista told them that all further supplies must
come from the American magazines. His men
made a harder fight for provender, than they ever
made before for Mexican honor and glory.
Unless England and France interfere as paoi
fic.itors, this will be a short war. The reverses
on the Rio Gtande have broken the spirit of the
Mexican soldiery ; Paredes has no money, or
credit and is probably ere this, hurled from pow
er. In their present distracted state, the vigo
rous prosecution of hostilities on our part will
speedily bring the Mexicans to such terms as our
government shall please to offer.
We must have California. That’s settled." The
spoliations on our commerce must be accounted
for, and the line of boundary distinctly marked
before our force is withdrawn from the soil.—
These little matters fixed the, “ savages of the
North” will allow the “ magnanimous Mexican
nation’, to take care of itself.
The opposition to the war is now confined to'a
very select party, composed of non-resistants,
abolitionists, and a dozen or two of parsons who
out of place, and desirous of receiving” calls”
howl to let the “unpiovided congregations”
know of their whereabouts. The military spirit
of the nation has risen about sixty per cent with
in the last month, and so far from regarding, as
some do, this an evil, we look upon it as a great
good. Our affairs with England are in a ticklish
state, maugre all the pleasant words of Sir Ro
bert and Lorddohn, anditas well that weshould
get in readiness for the worst. Besides, there
will be in a few years, a general “ breaking up ”
of the powers that be in Europe, and in the con
flict which will follow, it is too much to expect
that this great nation, or “ first rate power,” as
Lord John calls the United States, will be able
to stand aloof. Peace societies and peace tracts
are very good things, but until Europe is brought
under the influence of the sublime sentiments, it
will be hardly safe for the United States to take
the locks from their guns-
Foreign News—Oregon Question.—The Hi
bernia’s intelligence is of the most pacific char
acter. John Bull is as quiet as a lamb, and
evinces no disposition to crucify us, for venturing
to give him notice to quit Oregon. When the
subject was introduced in the Commons, both
Lord John Russell and Sir Robert Peel “came
down very handsemely,” as a Cockney would
say. Both said a great many pretty things of this
country; both declared that the trade was worth
something, and both hoped that the two great
nations of the world, bound together by so many
interesting associations, would never cross bay
onets on the field of strife, but pursue, side by
side, their mighty career in the great pathway of
civilization. To all of which, and with all our
hearts, we say amen ; but no compromise on the
49th parallel. If alt this palaver and soft soap,
are Intended to grease the way to a renewal of
negotiation, on the basis of a compromise, we
hope Mr. Polk will refuse. Great Britain tried
the “ violent treatmentshe set a large number
of men to work in her dockyards, provided for
the immediate increase of her armies, sent out
instructions to Canada, which induced the loyal
Canadians, who made a fortune on the last war,
to expect the immediate irruption of a flood of
guineas; fitted out an immense fleet, and aether
presses to work announcing these preparations,
and commenting on them. - All these failing, the
“soothing-system” is resorted to. Lord John
and Sir Robert are as gentle and affectionate
as sucking babies; and the Times, which three
months ago snuffed blood, in every gale which
blew from the Western continent, is now “as
well as could be expected,” under all the cir
cumstances and, quite free from the war fe
ver. Let us hold on to 54:40, at all hazards—we
have had enough of compromise with England.
Now for a bold, but dignified assertion of our
rights, come what may.
The Queen has, ere this, added to the number
of royal taxgatherers, and her loyal subjects are
without doubt, rejoicing over the happy event. If
thvy like those sort of things,nobody has a right to
complain. It is hinted that the Ministry will take
advantage of the kindly feeling, occasioned by
the birth of another prince, to gratify the Queen
in the darling wish of her heart, and coax Par
liament to make Albert, King Consort. The young
German has, without question, done his duty like
a man and a patriot; and, since the direct suc
cession is deemed of so much importance to the
British Constitution, by every free born English
man, entitled himself to the gratitude of the
whole nation.
Taking this view of the case it certcinly seems
hardihUt he should not be allowed to take equal
rank with his affectionate partner on the British
throne; and we can fancy that the fiend ambition
tortures him, and often too, by repeating the
words which the witches uttered to Banquo and
which by the way got Banquo into a bad scrape,
—“ thou shalt get kings, though thou be nonq.”
We referthe whole matter to Dr. Bartlett of the
Albion, a gentleman who has recently rendered a
most important service to the intelligent British
public by demonstrating that the eating of cakes
made of our Indian Corn, will not turn the skin
so black,that afullblooded negro is awhiteman
and a gentleman in contrast wpth a devourer of
prepared maze—an impressiqn that prevailed
very generally throughout the United Kingdom,
prior to the appearance of the learned doctor’s
treatise on the subject.
Municipal Reform.—The b’hoys didn’t turn
out on Monday, so that the number cf votes cast
for members of the Convention, authorised to re
vise the charter of the city, was very small. The
b’hoys are just now too busy in making ready for
the war, to attend to any trifling matters, like
those pertaining to city reform. They are wil
ling to let matters go on in the old way, until
they have had an opportunity of observing the
municipal government of Mexico, and the police
system maintained in the halls of the Montezu
mas. The Democratic ticket was elected in fif
teen out of the eighteen wards; so that party
will have the whole reform in their hands. We
should like to have seen a little strongerminority
in the body; but the Whigs are divided among
themselves, and are not disposed to go heartily
into any contest. They will wake up in the fall,
and make a strong effort to elect their candidate
for Governor.
It is said that the Democratswill district the
city, so as to break up all the old Whig strong
holds, and so keep that party in a hopeless mino
rity for the next ten years. But the best laid
plans “ aft gang awrang;” and we should not be
much surprised if the Democrats were to discov
er an error in their calculations. We shall see.
The Convention will meet on the first Monday
of July.
Insulting Females in the Street.—To use
the words of the departed and lamented Richard
Riker, this practice prevails to a considerable
extent in this city, at this time, and “ought to
be put a stop to.” Within a week, two interest
ing young ladies have been obliged, in self-de
fence, to assail a thing in mail attire, and were
fortunate enough to come off conquerors; and
Captain Rynders, a chevalier who is as much
overrated by his friends as he is underrated by
his enemies, was compelled in obedience to his
knightly vow, to battle in behalf of the defence
less woman, somewhere in Park Row, and hand
the assailant over to the police.
There are, we supose, not less than five thou
sand girls in this city who, compelled to pass af
ter night-fall from their places of business to their
homes, are continually exposed to insult and vio
lence from the lawless ruffians who roam through
the streets. Let each young lady thus circum
stanced, arm herself with a little Cayenne pepper,
and when insulted in the open streets, dash the
fiery powder into the eyes of her insuiter. De
pend upon it, that Cayenne will be found a most
effectual remedy for the annoyance, and relieve
Captain Rynders from the necessity of patroling
the streets at night, for the protection of female
The kind favors of our advertising friends
compel us to encroach somewhat on our edito
rial page, in to day’s issue. We are obliged to
omit several articles prepared for this number.
Templeton’s Concert. —We abstained, on the
last Sunday, from saying a word with reference to
the quarrel between Templeton, the Scotch sing
er, and Mr. Clirehugh—not because we were
without an opinion on the subject, but because
we thought the whole affair of no importance to
the public whatever, and one whichnevershould
have been thrust before its eyes. But the inci
dents of the Templeton concert, at the Taberna
cle, on Thursday night, were of so extraordinary
a character, that we are forced to notice them.
It was the street talk on Thursday that there
would be a row at the concert, and a large de
tachment of the police, headed by the Chief took
possession of the Tabernacle. In addition to
this, and acting as volunteers, we suppose, the
Empire Club, under the immediate command of
Captain Rynders, were distributed among the
audience, evidently with orders to suppress any
attempt to “kick up a muss.” The members of
this club exhibited a marked preference for
Templeton’s vocalism, and were exceedingly in
dignant when any of the other free and enlight
ened citizens and critics, who happened not to
be so well pleased, ventured to make audible
their displeasure. Remarks like the following,
were more than once heard during the evening :
“ Shut up yer d d ugly mug, or I’ll cram your
ugly teeth down yer d d ugly throat.” This
willgive the reader an idea of the threatening lan
guage used by the active friends of Mr. Temple
ton, on the occasion. Now for a specimen of the
persuasive and critical. Why can’t yer let Pen
dle-toa sing—“ I tell you he’s a good singer, a
tip-top and a touch above that. Hain’t you got
no music in yer souls I What’s Shakspere say—
He that hasn’t got music in his soul, isn’t fit for
anything.” Mr. Templeton backed by a physical
influence so potent, and a musical taste so refined,
cannot fail to make his entertainments attrac
tive. We congratulate him on so valuable an
acquisition to the number of his friends.
It is but justice to Mr. Matsell, the Chief of
Police, to say, that at an early hour of the even
ing, he laid down the law, that a person who had
paid for his admission to a place of public enter
tainment, had a right to express either approba
tion or disapprobation, in the usual way, i. e., by
clapping with the hands or hissing with the
mouth, and Captan Isaiah Rynders, in our hear
ing very generously sustained this decision of
Justice Matsell. But we observed, notwithstand
ing, that the lower members of this popular ma
gistracy had “constitutional doubts” as to the
propriety of the decision, or, at least as to its ap
plicability to the case in question, and, (we say
it with regret,) they allowed those doubts to
direct their conduct throughout the evening.
Justice Matsell behaved admirably from first to
last; his fine figure, which, by the bye, was the
admiration of the very few ladies in the house,
was seen moving in all directions, and his voice
was everywhere heard directing the movements
of his subordinates. Several times during the
evening he was compelled to “ hold court” in the
lobby, and once assumed the functions belonging
only to our high court of appeals. The case was
this: A gentleman, who had imprudently essayed
a hiss, was siezed by one of Mr. Templeton’s
new friends, a member of the Empire Club, we
were told, and forced violently towards the outer
door. The gentleman loudly protested against
the informality of the process and demanded the
opinion of Justice Matsell. The justice prompt
ly decided that the act was informal, if not ille
gal and desired the gentleman to be released.
Amidst the excitement of the whole affair, we
could not but satisfactorily contrast the “ order of
arrangements” with what it would have been had
the scene been located in Paris orLondon, instead
of New York. In Paris, a body of soldiers, with
ball cartridge and bayonets, would have en
tered the room, and awed the turbulent and dis
contented. Here on the contrary, were the mu
nicipal police, with the simple badge of their au
thority on their collars, and theirclubs or “slung
shot” in their pocketa, quietly seated in the pews,
or scattered through the aisles. To be sure, we
are not accustomed, in this country, to have our
mouths shut up, when they have clearly the
right to be open, but we submit to every free
and enlightened citizen, if compulsion must be
endured at all, whether it is not better to have it
in its mildest shape—in the shape which it pre
sented at the Templeton concert, for instance.
We think a little injustice has been done to
Rynders, and the members of the Empire Club
by intimations that they were hired to go to the
Tabernacle, and sustain Templeton. This, is a
grave charge to bring against an individual,but es
peeially-grave to bring against a body, of citizens
which exercises the influence which this club
notoriously does, in this city. It will be remem
bered that the Empire Club was organized, du
ring the great political campaign which resulted
in the election of Mr. Polk to the Presidency;
a result to which the club was mainly instrumen
tal. Unlike -he other political bands, which the
public mind seems to sanction —and unwisely, to
our thinking—pending important elections, the
Empire Club kept up its organization after the
object of it had been been accomplished, and
has participated in all the State and City elections
which have occurred since. Captain Rynders,
the leader of the club, holds an office of trust
and emolument in the Custom House, and many
ot the members are likewise in the service of the
general government. It is not for a moment to
be supposed, that men thus circumstanced should
appear in the character of paid bullies, to cry
down, by brute force, an assembly of citizens,
exercising only the right which the laws and
custom guarantee.
Acquitting them of the charge of having been
hired to sustain Templeton, we still think their
appearance at the Tabernacle on Thursday night,
was in bad taste; and the violence which they ex
hibited, most reprehensible. But something must
be pardoned to the excitement of the moment,
and allowance should be made for men whose ed
ucation and pursuits have begotten a somewhat
peremptory mode of action.
We do not care to answer the question put at
every corner, “ Why were those fighting-men at
the concert, unless to bully into silence, those
who went there with the purpose of hissing Tem
pleton down I” For aught we know to the con
trary, these fighting-men are personal friends of
Templeton, and were there in the performance of
a friendly office; or they may be as good judges
of music as they are of the science of the ring.
There they were, at any rate; and Templeton is
welcome to all the credit he may gain from the
character of his associates and backers.
Preparations seemed to have been made by
Templeton for everything but the sale of tickets.
When we walked up the passage, the ticket-sel
ler’s box was empty, and we were obliged to hand
our money to the man at the door. Presenting
him with a dollar bank-note, we waited patient
ly for five minutes; at the end of which time, he
succeeded, by a patient search of all his pockets,
in scraping together fifty cents, in battered six
pences and smoky pennies. Of the three or
three hundred and fifty persons who made up the
audience, not fifty paid for admission.
Templeton’s experiment, besides costing him
a considerable sum of money, has rather increas
ed the contempt of the public, which was mark
ed and vehement enough in its expression, before
his engagement with the Empire Club and the
police. He has, to use a Western phrase, most
effectually used himself up.
Health of Brooklyn, and other Matters.—
Our sister city, which has been aspiring for
some time past to be the capital of Long Island,
intending to annex the State of Coney Island
thereunto, is not an unhealthy place, nor is its
past and well-known salubrity diminishing,
though appearances, we confess, would favor
this idea, not only in regard to Brooklyn, but
many other charming cities and villages in this
and the adjoining States.
The great, rapid, and remarkable increase of
apothecary shops, and of the number of visitors
to such as were already established, may be rea
sonably accounted for, we think, without a resort
to the hypothesis of a diminished healthfulness in
those localities. The increase is-owing rather to
a new classification of articles which a majority
of the sovereign people in these places have
chosen to make. Certain articles have become
drugs, which have heretofore been sold as groce
ries—and this accounts for the increase of apoth
ecary shops in Brooklyn—having the more ab
struse question in regard to the milk in the co
coanut to be settled by the will of the people in
some future election.
We trust that our next Legislature of New
York may allow the peop'e to decide by infallible
majorities, some other questions of vital impor
tance. If the following matters are not settled by
the convention, now met at Albany, to revise the
Constitution, we hope the Legislature will allow
the people of this State to vote :
Ist. In regard to the bottoms of pantaloons—
“ with straps,” or “ without straps.”
2d In respect to the tops of the same articles
—“ suspenders” or “no suspenders.”
3d. In respect to the ladies—" bustles” or “ no
We protest, in advance, against the city of New
York being excluded from the right of voting on
these question in common with tlje people of
other portions of the State.
“ Family Ties” is the title of Dan Marble’s
prize comqdy, and Jo. Field, of the St. Louis Re
veille, the *u.hor.
“Love matches.”—To our astonishment, we
woke up yesterday morning and ascertained, that
a “treasonable” article, written and published by
us, three months ago, on the silliness of love
matches, had brought down on our head the in
dignation of the beautiful and accomplished edi
tress of the Boston Transcript, and the invective
of the eccentric John Neal. Two months ago we
were handed over “for execution,” without be
nefit of clergy. Cupid was ordered to show no
mercy, but kill us dead with “blunt arrows.”
Yet to-day we are alive and hearty—with not
an arrow in our heart, save that which was buried
there many years ago, and over which the wound
closed, kindly yet slowly, so that not even a scar
remains in evidence of the little archer’s skill.
We have tried and proved the literal truth of the
remark of Ovid—
“ Olla si tollas periere Cupidlnis arcus
And we make the quotation with the more rea
diness, because of its admirable harmony with
the article which has aroused the indignation of
sentiment and romance, in the persons of John
Neal, who is now verging hard on his sixtieth
year, and- the editress of the Transcript, who—as
we have before intimated, is not only a very
beautiful woman, but one of the most elegant
writers of which this, or any other country, can
This is an age of practical, or material—any
thing you please, sir, to distinguish it from the
purely ideal—action. It has brought forth no
great poem, but it has produced the steam en
, gine; it builds no monuments in honor of the
Past, but it lays railroad for the comfort and se
curity of the Present. It is a refined age, but as
unlike the refinement of Pompeii, in her palmiest
days, as lust is unlike love. Intellect is now the
servant, the bondman of utilitarianism. All that
interferes with, or obstructs, the progress of the
Real, which seeks, and democratically seeks, the
greatest good of the greatest number, or, in
other words, the highest enjoyments ot which
mankind—the mass—is capable, is an evil. Now,
romance or sentiment, which works itself into
young hearts, and so destroys the healthful ac
tion of young brains, thus “ hampering the ener
gies of our race,” is this very evil, and against
this, and in spite of the editress of the Transcript,
John Neal, and the boarding school misses of
both sexes, we will war to the last.
One word more: After this, we shall decline
controversy with every person who spells the ti
tle of our paper—Dispatch—with an e.
Religion and war.—Among the cants of the
day is the one, that war is contrary to Christian
ity. As if the “God of Battles ” is to be wor
shipped no longer! As if the nature of the Di
vine Being had changed since he led the armies
of Israel to battle, conquest and slaughter 1 As if,
when the pestilence was at His command, and all
the agencies of nature at his control, He did not
choose the sword, in preference to them all, and
preside over the destinies of his people as the
Lord of Hosts!
We do not usually write upon matters which
bslong more properly to the province of a theolo
gian, but this question assumes a character of po
litical importance, when we find men endeavor
ing to cripple the energies of the nation by an ef
fort to array religion against war. The world has
not changed, and the Almighty has not changed
—war then remains one of the great agencies by
which the world is governed.
Is it contended, that the Jewish Dispensation
has passed away, and that Christianity is a mis
sion of peace I Christ said: “I came not to
bring peace on earth, but a sword.”
The progress of Christianity has been one con
stant scene of warfare. The very Church is
termed a Church Militant; we are exhorted to
fight the good fight of faith.
The miracle of the blazing cross which ap
peared to the Emperor Constantine, converted
him at the head of his armies, and he went forth
to battle, exclaiming, “ In hoc signo vinces ”
At this day, our missionaries in India, as fast
as new provinces are opened to them by British
arms, write home, “ The Lord hath done it.”
There is no religion in the world which does
not recognise waras of divine appointment; and
no sect, unless it be the Quakers, who retuse to
fight from conscientious scruples. Least of all,
should those who reverence the Bible, declaim
against war—the Bible, which is itself, for the
most part, a history of some of the most bloody
and ferocious wars in which mankind were
ever engaged, and of battles which were fought
under God’s direction, and in many cases with
visible manifestations of divine assistance to the
victorious hosts.
A new erain Wall street.—We congratulate
our readers upon a change in the mart of money
changers, the importance of which they will not
fail to appreciate. Trinity Church, facing the
head of Wall street, and looking down upon its
remotest extremity, is opened for service this
day, and henceforth there is to be service twice
everyday, at nine o’clock in the morning, and at
three in the afternoon.
To-morrow, the influence of this change will
begin to manifest itself. The bankers and bro
kers, having breakfasted at eight o’clock, at nine
will be found at their devotions in Trinity church.
Prayers will have been said, just in season for
them to go to their banks and offices at ten.
Then will ;be a good time for those who want
discounts. Usury will disappear. There will be
no more shaving, and cornering in stocks will
be known no longer. Bankers will be liberal—
the officers of Insurance companies will charge
light premiums, and pay their losses promptly,
and the brokers will make no effort to raise stocks
above, or depress them below, their proper value.
Business will go on peacefully and honestly, un
till three o’clock, when bulls and bearswill again
repair to Trinity, and join in the evening service
of the church; after which, they will go home
and dine with their families, with clear con
sciences and good appetites. The lion and the
lamb may not lie down together yet; but when
bulls and bears kneel down together, at the head
of Wall street, the blessed Millenium cannot be
far distant.
“ Jeames’ Diary,” one of Punch’s amusing re
lations of the adventures of a footman, becoming
rich by speculating in railroad shares, and seek
ing an alliance with the daughter of the ancient
but reduced house ofßareacses, has an orignal in
one of the incidents of the Mississippi Scheme,
of which Law, a Scotchman, was the author,
and which brought France, as the South Sea
Bubble brought England, to the verge of bank
ruptcy. We give the story: “A man of the
name of Andre, without character or education,
had, by a series of well-timed speculations in
Mississippi bonds, gained enormous wealth in an
incredible short space of time. As St. Simon
expresses it, ‘he had amassed mountains of
gold ’ As he became rich, he grew ashamed of
the lowness of his birth, and anxious above all
things to be allied to nobility. He had a daugh
ter, an infant only three years of age, and he
opened a negotiation with the aristocratic and
needy family of D’Oyse, that this child should,
upon certain conditions, marry a member of that
house. The. Marquis D’Oyse, to his shame, con
sented, and promised to marry her himself on
her attaining the age of twelve, if the father
would pay him down the sum of a hundred
thousand crowns, and twenty thousand livres
every year, until the celebration of the marriage.
The Marquis was himself in his thirty-third
year. This scandalous bargain was duly signed
and sealed, the stock-jobber furthermore agree
ing to settle upon his daughter, on the marriage
day, a fortune of several millions. The Duke of
Brancas, the head of the family, was present
throughout the negotiation, and shared in all the
profits. St. Simon, who treats the matter with
the levity becoming what he thought so good a
joke, adds, “ that people did not spare their ani
madversions on this beautiful marriage,” and
further informs us, ‘ that the project fell to the
ground some months afterwards by the over
throw of Law, and the ruin of the ambitious
Monsieur Andre.’ It would appear, however,
that the noble family never had the honesty to re
turn the hundred thousand, crowns ” Law’s
co-aehmah in a very short time made money
enough to set up a carriage of his own, and re
quested permission to leave the great speculator’s
service. Law, who esteemsd the man, begged
of him as a favor, that he would endeavor, be
fore he went, to find a substitute as good as him
self. The coochmau consented, and in the even
ing brought two of his former comrades, telling
Mr. Law to choose between them, and he would
take the other.
Partizan Clubs.- It is time that these nui
sances were abated. They are generally compos
ed of ruffians, thieves and cut-throats—most des
perate fellows—who, controlled and governed by
one principle—and that, plunder—are at the beck
and bidding of every desperado who needs their
services, and possesses the means of rewarding
them. Recent events most forcibly demonstrate
the necessity of breaking up these ruffianly gangs.
Important Correction —The printers made
us say, in our last Sunday’s issue, that the town
of Gardiner, Me., was situated in the Kennebec
river, and on the valley of that name. The town,
when we last heard trom it, was situated on the
banks of the Kennebec, above high water mark,
and in the valley of that name. The printers
make even old scribblers nervous sometimes. |
Weekly Gossip.
A mother and three nursing children born at
one birth, were among the specimens of home
manufacture exhibited at the late fair in Wash
ington. “ Who will have the temerity now to
say that the tariff of 1842 should be repealed ?”
asks the Baltimore republican. The Union re
plies that a tariff is not necessary to protect pro
ductions; ‘that these things will go on of them
selves ;’ that nature.will take such care of herself
without any factitous protection.” We think that
Father Richie has the best of the argument, so
far as the re production of our species is concern
ed. Curious as it„may seem, in t this’“ item” cf
domestic manufacture, the less the amount,of
protection afforded, the greater the produce.—
Take Ireland as an illustration of the fact. We
transfer the whole subject to the philosopher of
the Tribune whose essay on the manufacture
of tenpenny nails, and root beer are as profound
as they are luminous.
Mr. Dinneford, at one time manager of the
Bowery theatre, and a man too well known ever
to make himself with safety, conspicuous in an
unpopular movement before the public, made
several speeches at the Templeton concert only
one of which was reported by the Herald. A
speech of his, made to one of the reporters for the
daily press, in the lobby of the Tabernacle, we
have endeavored in vain to put in such a shape
as to make it fit for publication. Mr. Dinneford
will understand us. Our knowledge of this ir.an
runs back to a period twenty years antecedent to
this, and we must kindly advise him to keep as
much aloof as possible from the public eye, and
to be especially careful not to insult gentlemen.
It is not safe, Mr. Dinneford, even for pay, for
you to come into the open daylight.
The Rev. Richard A. Stewart, who recently
arrived at New Orleans, at the head of one hin
dred stout volunteers from Baton Rouge and
Iberville, is represented as being endowed with
a great taste for fighting ; that it is a habit with
him, when he feels a call to thrash any one, to
ask a temporary dismissal from the thurch, and
when he has finished the job, solicit re-admit
tance to the fold of the faithful. Before leaving
on his present expedition, he formally asked
leave of absence, giving as a reason, that he had
had “ a call to go to the Rio Grande, and lick the
Mexicans.” The Rev. Richard A. Stewart is
evidently one of the b’hoys.
The competition of steamers on the North Ri
ver is kept up with great spirit. Miss Martineau
in her work on this country, speaks of an English
gentleman who passed up and down the river for
a whole summer, because it was cheaper than to
stay ashore. The same is the case now. The
fine steamer Express which commenced the op
position to the old lines early in the Spring is un
der the direction of her popular commander Cap
tain A. Hitchcock, in high favor among the tra
velling public. There is not on the river a finer
boat than the Express.
Sivori, the violinist, who is coming to this
country to fiddle our citizens out of their dol
lars, is a most wonderful man. The sketch of
his life which is distributed here, informs us
that his musical education commenced before he
was born 1 His mother on the eve of her confine
ment, heard Pagnnini’s fiddle, and the influence
of the divine catgut, rosin and bow, was impart
ed to her child. This is stated as a serious fact,
and the people are respectfully requested to be
lieve it. Any lady in an interesting condition,
who wishes to become the mother of a great fid
dler, would do well to hear Sivori play. He will
be here shortly.
A lady friend, who never will condescend to
give a reason for the course she compels us to
pursue, insists that we shall, until further notice
from her own sweet self, commend to her own
sex and ours, Mr. Adolph Angels’ Riding
School, known as the American Eagle and si
tuated on the corner of Chrystie and Delaney sts.
Happily we can, in this case, reconcile our alle
giance to her with our duty to conscience ; Mr.
Angel is a master of his difficult and beautiful
art, and sends forth from his school the most ac
complished equestrians who grace our avenues.
Mr. Park Benjamin wrote and published in the
Union, some patriotic doggerel, calling on the
people to take up arms in defence of the country.
There was no occasion for the call—for the people
were doing just that thing, Park. Miss Clara
Ellis—may we not ssy, as expressive of our ad
miration for this charming woman, “our Clara”
—has also been writing verses in the same line.

An ungallant fellow, who edits a Southern pa

brute ! Abby Kelly was, ten years ago, (when
we saw her on th® platform in Marlboro Chapel,
Boston,) a beautiful woman—her eyes sparkling
with enthusiasm, her clear, intelligent face beam
ing with benevolence. Besides, she had a little,
soft hand, and a foot and ankle petite. We came
near becoming an abolitionist, on her account;
and when she went off with Stephen Foster, our
heart was almost broken. We will allow no man
to abuse Abby Kelly—“charming Abby,” as, in
the days of our romance, we were wont to call
The Conservative Whigs talk of starting a
morning paper, in opposition to the Tribune, and
a meeting has been held to scare up the “ blunt”
—so the papers say, but it is all a trick, to get
Greeley out of the Tribune. We don’t like Gree
ley’s notions on patriotism, socialism, and un
bolted wheat—but we like the “inner man,”
(hey, Foster !) and reverence the old white coat,
which so long enveloped the outer—and we do
say, that if Greeley allow% himself to be tricked
by the schemers of the third ward, he is not le
gitimately of the Vermont breed.
We have it on the authority of the Tribune,
that there is an aristocracy among the slaves of
the South, who, when they wish to be very severe
on each other say, “ Go long, you half-priced nig
ger ! you wouldn’t fotch fifty dollars, and I’m
worth a thousand.” Presuming this statement
to be correct, we question very much, whether,
the aristocratic slaves would not oppose emanci
pation—which would inevitably reduce them to
a level with their half priced brethren.
A terrible accident happened to a young lady,
in one of the fashionable streets of Boston, a few
days ago. A clumsy laborer was passing by,
with an old board, full of nails, one of which
caught in the lady’s dress, and tore the skirt
completely off. The bystanders gathered around
and were amazed to read, in big, black letters,
imprinted on the petticoat thus unhappily expos
ed to view, “ Prime Old Java, No. 1.” It was a
coffee bag —and nothing else.

From our Regular Correspondent.
Washington City, J une 5,1846.
To the Editor of the Sunday Dispatch:
Ninety in the shade of the Capitol! I don’t
know how the weather may be, along your well
sprinkled, and Croton-watered Broadway; but,
if you could send us a few of those cool breezes
which sometimes come up the Narrows, tickling
the waters of your lovely bay to laughter, and
cooling the flushed cheeks of your lovely ladies,
as they play around Castle Clinton—or Castle
Garden, as it was called in the piping times of
peace—why, the government, Congress, and espe
cially your humble servant, would be duly graie
ful. As it is, I have retreated into the coolest re
cess of Mr. John Foy’s department, the commis
sariat £of mint juleps, where 1 shall quaff one
of his most delicious strawbery- tops, and scrib
ble you a paragraph in each pause of luxurious
and cooling imbibition.
In this warm weather, there are many rumors
of warm quarrels here, which you will have to
cool down by some such process as I am now
making use of, to my very great satisfaction, to
get at the temperate medium of truth. That of
a blow-up between the President and Gen. Scott,
is one of them. It is very likely, that between
the well known stubbornness of the one, and the
equally well understood ftaufeur of the other,
some hard thoughts may have arisen, and hard
words been said—in a strictly private and confi
dential way—but I think you may rest assured,
that neither the President nor the gallant chieftain
will compromise their dignities, by any Billings
gate war of words. Gen. Scott may rest in his
position; and his policy is, to consider his des"
tiny accomplished. The hero of Lundy’s Lane
cannot expect to place laurels upon his brows,
which will add any new glory to the wreath that
now adorns them.
There are, as I have ascertained by an accu
rate calculation on the principles laid down in
Cocker, sixty two and a half rumors here, in re
gard to the Ultimatum of England, supposed to be
sent out to Mr. Packenham, for the settlement of
the Oregon Boundary. One is that the British
Government demands the bed of the Columbia
from the 49th parallel to the sea, and has sentout
a force to fortify that position—sappers, miners,
artillery, and all that sort of thing. This is noi
true ! I venture, emphatically, to contradict it.
—As to the sixty one and a half rumors beside,
they are easily disposed of. I have not conver
sed with Mr. Packenham’s butler, nor his valet,
nor with any person of his establishment: but
Martin, the President’s righthand man, assured
me last night, in his own beautiful brogue, which
Gen. Jackson always admired so much, that it
was “all right;” and with this aasurance lam
perfectly satisfied. The fact is, Mr. Packenham’s
cockney servants are always misleading the gen
tlemen who write for the public press ; while
Martin, I am happy to say, would scorn to do
s£ch a thing.
The great show of manufacturers’ and other
dry goods has closed. It drew well, and must

Desperate Attempt at Self-Destruction
Yesterday evening, a little after dusk, a lady re
siding in Warren street, or in some street in that
neighborhood, rushed out of the house, ran to
wards the Dock at the foot of that street and de
liberately threw herself into the water ; a person
passing at the time, saw her, and gave the alarm
—two of the police of the district happened to be
at hand, and upon hearing the alarm came to the
spot and succeeded in taking her out of the wa
ter before she sunk. It appeared from the ac
count given by the police that she was nearly suf
focated at the time she was brought on the Pier;
she was conveyed to the Station House and after
wards she was sent home. We understand sht
was led to attempt the rash act in consequence
of some family difficulties.
Robbery of the Porter of the Long Island
Bank-A civil suit is now being tried in the Supe
rior Court, growing out of this robbery. About a
year after the robbery a SIOO3 alleged to be one
of the Bills stolen from the Bank Porter was
traced to a man named Rushworth, then and
still residing in the City of jPhila. : he was held
to bail on a charge of receivingthe note knowing
it to be stolen. The charge was afterwards aban
doned, but Rushworth was again at the Instance
of one of its officers indicted by the Grand Jury
of this city, upon which a requisition was ob
tained from Governor Bouck to the Governor of
Peensylvania and he was a second time arrested,
brought to this city and held to bail in the sum of
ten thousand dollars. The case was not brought
to trial and Rushworth now brings an action to
recover damages from the bank for a malicious
proseution, the case for the plaintiff is conducted
by Mr. C. T. Brady and Thomas Warner; Mr.
Ting and Mr. B, Silliman, appear for the Bank.
It was commenced on Friday, and was given to
jury yesterday evening with directions to bring
in a sealed verdict on Monday morning.

Mind your Punctuation.—The title page of a
pamphlet, published in Boston several years ago,
and now lying before us, reads as follows: “ A
Letter to the Hon. Isaac Parker, Chief Justice
of the Supreme Court of the State of Massachu
setts, containing remarks on the dislocation of
the Hip Joint occasioned by the publication of
a trial which took place at Machias, Me., in
1824,” &c. A single comma would have made
it all right—as it now stands, dislocation of the
hip joint was "occasioned” by the publication of
a trial!
Saratoga Springs.—A friend, who by the bye,

the exception of a few grave looking subjects,
who are in hopes to cure diseased lungs with
spring water ! Licences are granted here as
usual, though there was a majority of twenty
two votes in favor of “no license.” I presume
you are aware that corporate towns require a
two-third vote in such matters.”
Punctuation.—The use of commas, semi-co
lons, dashes, etc., depends much upon the ca
price of the author, and, not unfrequently, upon
the notions of the printer. A book before us, is
a curiosity ef close pointing. Though a work of
criticism, it is at first perplexing to read, from
the peculiarity of its punctuation. The following
sentence is a fair specimen :

to take ; the one, short, but. bad ; the other,
long, but, good; I should, certainly, choose the

Are ihese Things So 7—lf the body daily receive a
proper amount of nutrition, and daily expels the worn
out parts by the sensible and insensible evacuants health
is the natural consequence.
All medicine can do is to secure these results.
Therefore, that medicine which does secure them is
universal in its powers ior good to the human body.
Let us see. The blood comes loaded with impuri •
ties, when from any cause the pores of th® skin do not
perform their functions properly. A sudden change of
weather may occasion this when the humors are too re
dundant; want ot proper cleanliness, by permitting per
spired particles to remain upon the skin, has the effect
in some inslances to retard insensible perspiration ; the
same effect follows the use of greasy matter to the skin,
•as ointments and the like. All causes that impede in
sensible perspiration are sure to occasion great disorder
in the body. Costiveness occasions the greatest impedi
ment to insensible perspiration of all other causes com
bined. Because the matters which have once been
thrown into the bowels, are only those which nature
could not make sufficiently fine to go off any other way
save by the bowels. Well. These very matters in
steed of being daily evacuated, are retained in thesys
tem, and re-absorbed again into the circulation. But
they cannot perspire; they only load the blood with im
purities ; only gum up the pores ; they can never go out
save by the bowels, or by tumors, boils or some eruptions
ot the skin; good physicians know this universally as
well as Dr. Brandreth. But the great difficulty in all
these cases of costiveness, in all these cases of re-ab
sorbtion, is, that the blood not only becomes contamina
ted, butthat the pores ot the skin become so clogged
with gummy matters that great danger to the body oc
curs. For be it known to all men, that actual experi
ment has demonstrated that in twenty one hours, in a
healthy condition of the skin, we part by insensible per
spiration with/our times as much impurities from the
body, as we do by all the sensible evavuations together
in the sama time. We cannot then fail to see the terri
ble consequences which must soon result to the body,
when the pores are from any cause retarded in the full
exercise of their powers. The first thing which must
follow a state of costiveness is a cold shivering, per
haps headache ; on the lungs there may be oppression,
and very soon fever will follow, if it do not accompany
the preceeding symptoms.
In health we perspire about two ounces per hour. In
sickness arising from the above causes, we scarcely
AMOUNT of mattejs which must be thrown into the blood
—Of course we may expect severe pains—sometimes
death will take place before wc can obtain an operation
from the bowels. But. my friends, instead of using
Brandreth’s Pills, shall we use those remedies which
caray death and destruction in their train? Shall we
use Balsams, Lozenges or Ointments ?—These means
may prove palliative, may reduce the amount of suffer
ing, may throw these matters from the point where the
pain is: may, in fact, cause the humors which produce
the pain to be thrown again into the circulation. But,
my friends, it is not out of the body. Itmay settle up
on a vital part, and death be the consequence at once. No
remedies are safe unless they take out disease in a pal
pable form. When we have pain in any part of the bo
dy, that pain is caused by the retention of those mat
ters which ought to have come away by the bowels.—
They must come oy that channel before heath can be
established. Be sensible then—use those remedies on
ly which bodily take out from the bowels and circulation
all those matters which have been retained beyond
the time Nature designed or health permitted. Anil for
this purpose Brandreth’s Pills are all sufficient. Let it
be understood, that in all cases, if possible they should
be used on an empty stomach. Because the object is not
to accelerate digestion but to remove the crudities from
the blood ; and the Pills, always passing into the blood,
do so more easily, and with greater comfort to the body
when the stoniachjias nothing to oppose to them jn
their passage through it to the first intestines, and so in
to the circulation. For when the Pills are swallowed,
they first pass into the stomach, and having been dis
solved there, next pass into the small intestines whence
he lacteals suck them up and pass them along, with a
portion of chyle, into the veins first, and afterwards into
the arteries. lsuppo.se they, the Pills, impart an extra
power to arterial blood to deterge morbid matters when
ever it may.find them ; and also passing such morbid t
matters from the arteries to the veins which bring them
to the liver, pancreas and kidneys ; in consequence of
which, these organs become more vigorous in their se
cretions, and expel not only the crudities which have
been thrown into them from all parts of the body, but
also thosewhich they themselves contained previous to
the collection of crudities or impure humors or matters
are discharged into the bowels and is being accomplish
ed when you feel that filling up of the bowels, which
warn that they are about being moved. This feeling
takes place in health, only to a less extent; for it is the
same principle that moves the bewels to discharge their
contents ; aud these acrid or acid humors are provided
by Nature fer this very purpose—that of producing ihe
alvine evacuation —and it is only when they are in too
great a quantity that disease is The Bran
dret.h. Pills bring from all parts of the bo
dy to the bowels, which viscera is excided by their pre
sence, and so occasions their expulsion from the body,
thus it seen that the Pills lose their individuality after
being dissolved in the stomach, and the purgation is
solely from the effect produced by the cleansing the
blood receives of its impurities.
Be very careful and go to the Agent when you want
Brandreth Pills ; then you are sure of the genuine arti
cle. When you purchase otherwise, inquire whether
the person selling them knows the Pills he offers you are
genuine Brandreth Pills. Every man knows whether
ttMS article he oflers you is true or false. Beware of
cheats !

Ere he had nerve to break it, and to reud,

A case of law, with most becoming zeal—
In Cupid’s court he was a sorry pleader,
And felt himself unfit to be a leader.

2J to 3£ ounces. Price only $3 50. It is about two years
since the Gossamer Hat was first introduced by the Sub
scriber to the notice of the New York public, as the
lightest, the most desirable, and th® most tasty article for
Summer wear.
The astonishing success attending them; evinced by
the extraordinary laige amount of sales, and the popu
lar approbation bestowed upon them by thosejwhohave
given them their patronage, have not been lost upon
the Subscriber, who, to show that he is ever anxious to
excel in his art, now presents for public patronage the
Gossamer Hat much lighter and more pleasant than any
other ever before offered. They are not liable, like the
Leghorn and Panama to lose either shape or color from
exposure to the rain. They cannot be soiled by either
perspiration or oil from the hair, so commonly the case
with other Hats—for the much admired style of trim
mings, originating with the proprietor, prevents all this.
This is a decided advantage over all other Hats.

MThe undersigned bespeaks the attention ot the
public to the quality of his SUMMER HATS.—
Possessing the various properties usually sought
for by the man of taste, they have the additional merit
of being 25 per cent, below the standard price. They
are essentially similar in material workmanship and fin
ish, to the articles manufactured by the mor® splendid
establishments of Broadway; and on a close compari
son of their respective merits, no material difference
can be perceived, except in the single particular that the
Subscriber has adopted a style of trimming which effec
tually prevents ihe perspiration of the forehead from stri
king through, and impairing their appearance.
Their average weight from 2f to 34 ounces, being
much lighter than substantial Leghorn or Panama. Per
sons of taste and judgment, who are influencedin their
purchases by considerations of eost, are invited to exa
mine them, aud to establish by the test of comparison,
their precise value compared with the productions of
other manufacturers.

who pronounce Epileptic Fits incurable, and all
thatare interested, are respectfully invited to examine
the following certificates of wonderful cures. If they
are false they ought to be exposed ; if true they ought
to be known and no longer say epileptic fits are incura
ble. Let the examination be made.
Drs. Ivans and Hart—Gents: It is with no small de
gree of gratification that I am enabled to announce to
you the complete restoration to health of my daughter,
who for some three n onths past has been under treat
ment at your hands for a disease, the cure of which we
had almost ceased to think possible, having tried cur
ing a course of several years, patiently and thoroughly
the means prescribed by several different physicians,
bnt all to no purpose.
To those similarly afflicted and who may apply to yon
for relief, a short statement of the facts of the case may
perhaps be interesting.
About the age of six years (her age at present is fif
teen) your patient was first attacked with this dreadful
malady, called Epileptic Fits ; but which, however at
first soon yielded to ihe course of treatment prescribed
by the Physician then called to attend her, and we
thought her cured ; but after the lapse of a year she was
again attacked and with increased severity, and again
the Physician temporarily overcame it; but the disease
itself was not removed from the system. It returned
successively at shorter intervals, and with increasing
severity, until at length it reached an alarming stage—
so that formore than a year, and until you took the case
i in hand, she suffered with those attacks of Fits almost
incessantly, and so severely as to threaten to drive Rea
son from his throne, and render her an Idiot, Physi
cians pronounced her case incurable; that they could
do nothing more for her, and we had almost despaired
of a cure, when hearidg of some remarkable cures you
had effected, I deteimined to try your prescriptions.
The result has far exceeded our most sanguine expec
tations, (although we hoped some good might be done,)
and now after three months’ treatment at your hands,
we see her freed from a most dreadful malady, and re
stored to perfect health. Should any one feel desirous
of seeing the patient and of ascertaining the particulars
of the case, such wish may be gratified by calling at my
residence, about two miles from the village of YonkenL

Drs. Ivans and Hart— Gentlemen: Pardon me for
having delayed till this late day to acknowledge the
debt of gratitude I owe to you for the benefit 1 have re
ceived from the use of your valuable medicine. It is
now twenty years since I was first afflicted with epilep
tic fits, and since that time I have experienced every
degree of suffering. For the last eight years I have been
unable to attend any kind of business, and at times my
mental faculties and bodily powers have been com
pletely prostrated. I have had the advice of many emi
nent physicians, and have tried their medicines -but to
no avail. It is now five weeks since I commenced taking
your medicine, and I find my health is rapidly improv
ing, and, by the blessing of God, I trust I shall soon be
able to pursue my daily avocation.
Yours, respectfully,
QTo all whom it may CONCERN.—I hereby testify that
1 have been afflicted for twenty three years with epilep
tic fits; it would be impossible for me to describe the
amount of my sufferings, the almost constant dread, the
awful forebodings and symptoms of a returning fit, the
sleepless nights, together with all that unspeakable tor
ture of body and mind which the poor victim of this
dread scourge and hitherto invulnerable foe of man suf
fers. I have suffered through the various stages of this
disease, irom having the attacks light and far between,
to severe and frequent—l have tried the skill of numer
ous physicians, in a word, I have tried until grow weary
of trying, without receiving any benefit whatever, and I
looked forward to the messenger, Death, the finisher of
mortality, to end my misery and conflict in this, which
has been to me truly a va’e of tears; but, thank God, I
am now restored to health, and have every reason to
believe that the disease of epilepsy is entirely removed
from my system.
My friends have noticed the great change wrought in
my appearance, and congratulate me on my recovery to
health. All nature to me, wears a new aspect. Life
hi therto seemed to me a great burthen, but now a blessing
and truly I have every reason to be thankful.
A word more to those who are similarly afflicted. I
u «ed Drs. Ivan’s and Hart’s Vegetable Extract, and it is
this which has under the blessing of the Almighty,
wrought in me this almost miraculous change, and I
would cheerfully take pleasure in conversing with them
on this subject, if they will call at my residence, No. 73

IT is universally known that all diseases are caused
directly or indirectly, by impurity of the blood.
This is a fact established by the experience of ages, and
placed beyond doubt. To counteract the baneful con
sequences, therefore, and restore health and vigor to
the system, the first blow should be struck at the foun
dation of Disease, the first effort should be the purifica
tion of the Blood. Dispensing with the almost univer
sal custom of “ sending for the Doctor” upon the ap
pearance of Disease, many millions of Dollars, and
great numbers of valuable lives, would be saved annual
ly, were this fact duly understood and appreciated by
our citizens. Such is, however, the absurd custom that,
in preference to paying a small amount for a known re
medy ofsupenorexcellence, which must produce the de
sired result, many times the amount is cheerfully paid
in order to have a case done up regularly by a regular
Physician! When our citizens have by experience
learned that in nine cases out of ten, a physician can be
entirely dispensed with, that simple and efficacious re
medies can at all times be kept conveniently by, and ap
plied as dictated by judgment and discretion, then the
numerous ca es of extortion and robbery which now are
continually occurring, by the existence of an antiquated
and over-populated profession, will at length be done
The use of Sarsaparilla as a powerful Purificator of
the blood, is not a modern application: it is one of the
oldest remedies in existence for that pur >ose, and al
though many poor and miserable articles are sold under
that name, yet the genuine Sarsaparilla, manufactured
in extract from therooi ttseZ/, is by far the most effect ve
remedy on record. There are several different and
poorer kinds offered to the public, and sold with the ex
press purpose of realizing large profits—such is not the
case with Fay’s Sarsaparilla; it is itself an article war
ranted genuine, and as such, superior to any manufac
tured by any manufacturer whatever in this country.
Dr. Fay challenges competition or equality in this re
spect. The testimonials from ahroad and at home, which
can be seen at his store, are the best proofs which can
be urged. The Sarsaparilla is prepared from the root it
self, had not, as is the case with all the other articles,
from extracts of the root. Large oval bottles, containing
three times the quantity contained in Sands’, Bristol’s,
and other Sarsaparlllas, (being one and a half quarts in
each bottle,) is sold at ONE DOLL AR per bottle, the
same price only, and warranted FAR SUPERIOR.
Paris, 2d March, 1846—12 Rue St, Henore.
Messieurs—With pleasure, I congratulate you upon
having first introduced to the community so valuable a
medicine, as the Sarsaparilla received by last invoice.
It is one which we have never seen equalled ; its own
intrinsic mertts secure such an extensive and universal
demand, that withoutany mode of advertising or making
it public, we cordially believe that we have supplied one
quarter of this vast city with the remedy, by the simple
communication of its qualities by one person to another.
Our Magasin, which as you are aware, has hitherto been
more exclusively devoted to the wholesale tra<ie, has
within a few months past, been besieged by single appli
cations for the medicine ; thus giving an air of business
and popularity to the vicinity, at once gratifying and
We trust that you will, hereafter, be able to supply
