In his letter to the Clay dinucr, at Alexandria. Botts
not oalv utters a whining complaint over the tact that
he bad “no official part to play iu the ceremonies’ in
this city, on Thursday last, and over the further iact,
that he was not even invited to take a seat on the plat
form, set apa-t exclusively for invited guests, and those
©ibially connected with the inauguration, but he com
plains, also, because distinguished Democrats were invi
ted to, and did, participate iu the celebration. “W hen,
he says, “I road over the list of the names of the gentlc
jh« 0. who are said to have accepted invitations to be
pres at, as 'iiihsyuuAai paasfa, to do reverence to the
memory of Mr. flay. 1 pause for reflection * •
*1 cannot resist the temptation of asking myself, what
it is they see in Mr. Clay's character to admire," Ac. 1;
aicvars trotn this extract.that the “Immortal'' was over
whelmed with amazement and indignation, at the idea
that any Democrat should have been invited to a.-c-ist in
t! Clav Statue inauguration—amazed and indignant that
. Mill ..i Anril. the birthday of the great flay, should
!«• desecrated, by allowing Democrats to join in it- cele
).ration—amazed and indignant that any others but tl e
ft ieuds and admi'ets of Mr. Clay, during his lifetime,
should be permitted to attend, and witness so imposing
a ceremony in hisj honor 1 To bear him talk uow, one
would suppose that he would never consent to unite in a
celebration in honor of Mr. Clay, if Democrats were al
lowed to come near—that he would really consider it
wor e than mockery—even downright sacrilege—ever to
allow anv ethers thau the always staunch and devoted
li i-uids of Mr. Clay to participate in any ceremony, or
be present on any occasion, intended to do honor to the
ill curious Statesmen and Patriot.
But, we need not a-sure our readers that we have
proof positive before us, demonstrating that Botts' coni
pl.tit.ts about Democrats l» iue iuvited to the Clay S: ttue
inauguration, are mean, selfish, and hypocritical, to the
li-t decree, as we shall proceed at once to show. On
the U Ji of April. 1 Sitl—four years ago last Thursday—
there was a celebration at Ashland, fifteen miles distant
from Richmond. On that occasion, the “christening ot
Ashland" took place, and Botts had at least two “clhci. 1
parts to play in the ceremonies" of the day. In the first
p ace, he acted iu the capacity of Vice President, and in
the ueit iu the “capacity of divine"—for he performed
the rite of baptism ! He made, al~o, a speech on iLe
iKcasiuu, out- of the regular toast, being in th-*se words
“Pam SnniT—n to :tf,r the day, and a un
ion of all parti** in honor of him *ho never *uf end
/utrlv spirit to sicay hi* <t. fioms when the honor and ml
fun of hi* country mn involved. "
Now, there is a eerninut which Botts very cordially
endorsed four years ago, and on an occasion far less im
portant and imposing than the one of Thursday last, in
this eity. But things went to suit him four years ago;
for he had then “ait vflic.ai part to play in the ceremo
lues,” and things always go light wi.h him. when he is
made the central figure in the prog- amine , and uever oth
But further—there were tveh-e speeches made at the
celebration a’ A- land four yeais ago, the first b-ing
made bv a distinguished Democrat, then a member ot
Pierce’s Cabinet, and iu 1st l a lending member of the
famous "Tyler Hoard,” an ii was filled in those days—
the first speech on that occasion, we say, was made by
Caleb Cushing. And of the twelve speeches made on that
occasion, ten were made by Democrats—only t

()n the 22 J of February list. there assembled In the city
of K'cbmond one of the largest, most intelligent, most or
d iIv, and most inpo.iog politic il conventions that«'or
coaveued in tin-Old Pommion. A dillercoce ol opinioo,
it L-i true, existed among its members on a particular and
s ibor.li ae point, but everything passed oil harmonious
ly. pie isandy, and fairly, so far as sra- known or believed
a: the time. There was no charge or intimation that
fraud had been perpetrated, or that injustice had been
done to a single'memberjof tV party, fiie Convention
adjourned, and all appeared harmony, peace, aud cheer- j
ful acquiescence in, if not universal satisfaction with, the j
p-oeeediugs and decisions of the body. The delegates
all returned to their homes, filled for the most part with
hope aud enthusiasm, and sanguine of the success of an
eudeared and a common cause.
Thus happily matters stood for several weeks after the
a Ijourntnent of the Convention, when, all at ouee, Botts
an i his friends raised the cry of “ packed committees,
of the popular voice being overslaughed." and of ‘ trau
d dent attempts” in the Convention to blast Butt- politi
• il prospects, and blow him into kiugdom-come. This
sudden aud before unheard of cry took nearly all the
members of the Convention by complete surprise. But
from the day it was started, it has been constantly rung
in the public ear, until its authors and circulators, few
iu number, have possibly come to believe it—but, we are
I giad to ktfbw, that none other than Botts and his haudiul
[ of minions, who originated it for selfish purposes, do bc
I Her* it. The character of the great body of delegates
j to the Convention is a sufficient guarantee to the people
| of Virgiuia that no fraud was perpetrated, or attempted
1 to be perpetrated, by the State Convention that there
was no conspiracy,or attempt at eouspincy agaiust Botts,
j for the irticient reason, if there were no other, that he
! is totally unworthy of being conspired against.
But, wc allude to these things to show that while the
Cviveution iisclt was a great aud an agreeable success, a
! little storm has been rai-ed aga;n-t it, siuce its adjourn
ment, bv Botts and his followers, for their own selfish
' end-; and that because we, aud those who concur with
us, itdiguantlv repel the imputations east upon the mem
bers o! th Convention we are areebarged by the authors j
of the controversy themselves, with proscribing Botts i
a:.d disturbing the harmony of the party ! We deny the |
accusation, and aiUrm whatis knowu by all to be the

events of the la-t twelve years amply sustain our asser

Not alone in politics, but in other things, also ! The
I oiav Statue celebration of last Thursday, everybody was
delighted with, and everybody said it was a grand an J
! gloriou- success. The unnumbered thousands of men
women aud children, who thronged the streets and
assembled on the Square, were unusually gratified aud
hipp. on.Thursday last. There was only one unhappy
;>e ou iu llich i.oud ou that memorable day—aud we
i: ed not say ti nt that person was John Minor Botts. lie
was the “JohHv Hook" or the occasion! Amid the univer
sal rejoicing, bis voice alone was heard uttering com
plain - against the great and patriotic occasion ! He alone
was dL-s ttL-tied, aud he alone, iu the anguish of wounded
e .otLsm, cried out—‘‘uo otticial part lor me to play iu the
tvrenionv”—"uo seat lor me on the platform!"

The 17th volume of the History of the Consulate and
the Empire, by M. Tiiiets, just published, contains a note
which M. Jerome Napoleou Bonaparte, “aFrench citizen
residing at Baltimore, iu the United States,” requested
ih ■ publisher to iusert. The note states—That on the
24th ot December, 1808, Jerome Bonaparte, then a naval
ollieer iu the service of the French Republic, married
Mi-s Elizabeth Paterson, daughter of a citizen ol the
l uited States; that the marriage was celebrated by the
Bishop of B iliimore, according to the rites of the Catholic
t'hurhh ; and that the marriage was regularly registered.
Tiiai Jerome Bonaparte, then nineteen years of age, had
at .aiued the age required bv French law to contract a
valid marriage. That, his father being dead, his mother,
M idaiue Letitia Bonaparte, did not within a year, as re
quired by the French law, demand that the marriage
should be declared null ami void. That, on the contra
ry, Madame Letitia, called, M. Jerome Napoleon Bonu
l>arte, the issue ot that marriage, “ her dear son,” and
signed herself in a letter to him, " hit rerp affectionate
in ithcr.” That in 1805 the Emperor Napoleou demand
e<i ot the rope a bull annulling mat marriage, uuu mm
the Pope replied that there was no reason to annul the
marriage, anil that were he to do so, he would he guilty
of d no><t abominable abuse ot his saereil ministry before
the tribunal of (iod, and before the entire Church. An
aii.-wcr to this note, transmitted by Prince Napoleon, is
annexed bv the publisher. It state that Madame l.eti
tin Bonaparte did. on the 3d Ventose of the year 18, its
-oon as she heard of the marriage, legally protest against
it in the following terms:
“That, in order that her iutentions should be well
kuonu, and that at no future time her sileuce should he
interpreted iu a manner contrary to her real sentiments,
hi oid' r to express her will on the of]' nee committed by
her sou against the laws of maternal dignity, declares,
1st, that her consent was never demanded by her son,
being a minor, and that she would have refused it from
motives which the law authorizes her not to state; 2d,
th it -he solemnly protests by the present act against any
marriage contracted by her son, Jerome Bonaparte, iu a
foreign'country, without her consent, and in contempt
o: the forms prescribed by law ; 3d, that site expressly
reserves 10 herself the right of appealing thus, aud be
fore the competent authority, as soon as she can procure
a copy of the marriage certiticatiou, iu order to have it
dedaled null and void.”
Tuis nullity was pronounced by a decree of the 11th
Ventose, year 13, by the Emperor Napoleon, aud approv
ed by the Council of Stale iu these terms:

Article 1. In case of any difficulty being raised rela
tive to the validity of the'said marriage, either in the
eta'e of Maryland or in the French Republic, the said
J.-rome Bonaparte engage*, at the request ot the said
Elisabeth Pater-on, and of the said William Paterson,
oreiilnr of them, to execute any deed necessary to re
move the difficulty, and to confer on the said union all
the character of a valid and perfect marriage, according
to the respective laws of the Slate of Maryland and the
French Republic.
Article 1. That if the marriage should hi annulled,
either on the demaud of the said Jerome Bonaparte, or
that of anv other member of his family, the said Eliza
bet Paterson shall have a tight, in any case, to one-third
of the real, persoual aud mixed property of her future
Mi-s Paterson accepted the position of which she an
ticipated the risk,and received a pension of C0,0"0f. troin
me Emperor Napoleon 1 till the Restoration. At thcre
eatahli.-hmeut ol the empire uuder Napoleon III. the*de
seeudams of the marriage with Mi-s Paterson attempted
to establish a right, and Prince Napoleon aud the Prin
c >ss Matuilde appia'ed to an imperial family council, the
onlv competent tribunal, to forbid Jerome Paterson to
attribute to himself, with the name of Bom.p r.e, a dila
tion which does not belong to him legally. The family
council, on the 4th of July, 185ft, having heard M. Alloa,
the advocate for Prince Napoleon and the Princess Ma
thilde, aud M. Berryer for M. Jerome Bonaparte, main
tained the right of the defendant to the name of Bona

Nkw YtiKK. April 17.—The Methodist Episcopal Can
ference, which his bet n in ■ e.-aion lor some days in this
city, has at length come to a conclusion on the slavery
q it-siiou. The d bate has been going on since Friday.—
1 appears that the fourth rub* ot the Church disc.plii •
makes it a condition oh membership to prohibit “t e
tuning and selling of men, women and children, with un
intention to eushtve them. The recent conference at Erie
did not think the paragraph sufficiently explicit, and pass
i d a series ot resolution*, which they requested the bish
ops to present to each conference, making the condition
ot membership rea l—“the buying, selling, holding or
tiatisferring of any human being to be used in slavery.”
\ direct vote oti this subject was required by the Cou
ei vatives; but the ‘‘progressive," or as some called them,
he “radical” party, were not satisfied, and i.itioduced,
a substitute, tliroiigli Rev. Win. il. Ferris, which asked
t at the general conference should take measures to pro
ven: slavt ry, for selfish or mercenary purposes.
Tne vote on Mr. Ferris’ substitute was «jl in favor and
y against it, while the ••Erie” resolution was rejected by
an overwhelming majority—the vote being -12 iu the af
firmative, and 125 in the negative. The Erie resolution
is iu favor ol excluding all slaveholders from the church,
while the “substitute” prohibits the holding of slaves for
mercenary purposes.
Washington, April 17.—The President today trsns
uiitte i to the Senate copies of additional correspondence
with tori igu governments concerning the rights of Amer
ican naturalized citizens abroad. It is conducted through
out in good temper—the United States iu all casei tepu
diating jjie doctrine of perpetual allegiance.
It appears lrotn these documents that twelve years ago
the British government released two naturalized Irishmen
who were suspected of aiding iu the rcbclliou aud enga
ged in treasonable practices.
I.ord l’altmrston, however, declared that foreign born
subjects of Britain, who may have become naturalized in
foreign countries, but w ho return to the Uuited Kingdom,
are as amenable as any other of her Majesty’s sul jects to
any law s w hich may be in force either of a permanent or
temporary nature.
The Senate to-day confirmed Maj. Eli-hi G. English as
U. S. Marsh d for Indiana.
“ Mozis Amu us,” the inimitable wit, is to lecture in
Rickmo! 1 < u Friday evening, lies subject is, “An Apol

make humorous atid instructive in an eminent degree.
It is said that “Mozis” has been invited to lecture he
ft re the Ltbiary Association iu this city, and that he may
make his appearance here oefore long. Of course there
will be much curiosity to see and hear the funuy fellow,
[who, by the way, is one of the nn st elegant, accom
plished and fascinating gentlemen in the Commonwealth,
and single at that.] .So we advise the Library Association
to increase the price of admission in order to accommo
date all who may wish to aticud. ludeid, Phoenix Ball

cents a head. A all events, let ‘ Mozis ” be summoned
before a Petersburg audieuce, and that right soou.—

.Ur. Gliugman said that he was also opposed to the rc

thought the Seuate might adjourn for six days. In reply

at the mecticgjof the Chicago Convention.
Mr. Trumbull thought the Senate had better adjourn
for a mouth, instead/il taking such a step.

Mr. Houston said he would amend hy adding that
those members w ho paired oil with others, and thus pre
vented the proper representation of their respective con

certifying to the superior excellence of Dr. Ayer's com
pound Kxtract of Sarsaparilla and to the value of ail his
remedies as articles of great public utility. Such evi

in the position we Imve long maintained with regard to
Dr. Ayer’s preparations, or more particularly our adver
tisements of them. No publishers need be more oppos
ed than we are to the promulgation of quackery of any

were above any suspicion of deception—that tiiey were
about the best it is possible to produce for the cure of
disease, and that they have the confidence of ail commu
