It is hoped that all the border States will concur in
the policy here recommended ; a policy so much more
consistent with the gravity of the crisis, and the magni

course of South Carolina. We are not sanguine that a
settlement can be effected on this basis; but we are sure
that the greater deliberation it implies is more worthy
the character ol States claiming to he sovereign, and
more consistent, not only with that high sense ol deeo

Mr. D 'u;;!u.s and Mr. Seward opp.-sed this as unneces

Mr. Fitch said t‘ e ameru’iuetit would not keep back

Tile re solution* of Mr. Crittenden were then taken up,
and Mr. Bigler, ol Penn., made a conservative speech, in
which be too* atror g ground ill l vvor of the pasSavre of
t ie r. soiuiiatis. lie claimed the right of the peoplo to
amend tits Constitution, and referred to the rise ot the
country from tb'rteen sm-ll Stales and its subs*quent
progress ’o tliis time, when i! stood in danger ol d.srup
tion ui.'l division. Kveuts had added to the excitement
until the South believed her only safety lay outside the
Union, and in eternal separation from their Northern
con ’.-derate*. He rt*ferred at length to the compromi-es
ef ldjo and 1AJO, and to the Johu Brown raid, aud the
endorsement ol the H.-lpor book, followed by the election
of a sectional party President. Five States had thereup
on seceded, vud i' was their mission to restore peace.
lie a gued a’- length upon the propriety of calling a
Convention of the p ople to adopt amendments to the
constitution He was clearly of the opinion that the peo
ple of the South had the light tocarrv their property into
the Teni oiies, and urged gentlemen on the other side to
yield th - poiut. He further thought all per-onal liberty
hill* should bi- repealed, and admitted that Peunsvlvaida
had not been blameless in this regard. He farther ar
g ed iha eo* rcicti was impracticable, but thought ti c
law* should be enf ir.eJ wherever civil process could b *
s irved. He thought it impossible to collect taxes or ex
ecute the laws where the wbol: people were opposed.—
H deprecated civil war as unnecessary.
Mr W.lsoa moved that the subject be postponed till
Thursday, at halt-past one o’clock.
Mr Powell widled to speak, and would be satisfied
wld, e-iaer Wednesday or to-morrow.
Mr. Cameruji of Pa*. expressed his r> gret that so
few Senators had paid the attention due to the remarks
of his colleague, oue of th - representatives of the gr. at
S gte ol Peusvlvania. For himself he was ready to do
* v thing to prevent a separation of the Union, and
wou'd s .taiu the propositions of his colleague.
Mr. Green said that his side of the chamber had such
c TDtidcuce in the go- d sense wild luiegn'y of the &*• a
tar front Pennsylvania (Mr. Bigler,) (hat they dm nut
th uk it necessary 10 slay and watch him.
Mr. Cameron expressed again his anxiety for concilia
tion. He «;*h(d the withdrawing Senators had remain
ed to see what could be doue.
Mr. Ivorsou wished to know whether the gentleman
appioved the v iew-1 of his colleague.
Mr. Cameron a aid he would go for them and further to
Mr SauUbury thought the words wu „h h^d fjijjen
,bould lie cherished; they evinced devotiou to tho oouu
trr and the Uuion.
Mr. Iverson wished to know whether Mr. Cameron fa
vo*<« coercion.
Mr Cime«in. replied that that was a bad remedv,
a'.d he did uot know that h* xronkj ever be willing to re
sort to it.
Mi M u-on took Mr. Cameron to ta«k for having voted
1 for Clark’* i-nhoitute to Crittenden’s propositions anj
having proposed a reconsideration, and then voted
against them. He thought the tortuous course of the
Republican* was exemplified bv the lacl that the Seuator
> had pr« .'mud resolutions in favor of the repeal of Per
“ sonal Liberty bills, while the House of Delegates ol
Pittsylvania had refused such action.
Mr. Cameron thought the Senator sought an excuse for
1 get;u c'out of the Union, aud wanted no arrangement

n t to be dragooned, lie >as the jeer ct the Senator

Mr. Mason slid he meant no off nse to the Senator,
- but hid simply comment*d upou bis public course. A.
for s eking an excuse to get out o( the Unjon, it you’d
i be more difficult to excuse himself to his people tor sta/
, iug in under existiug crcumstanees. lie proceed'd tc
say that the Uuijii was already broken up, aud that co*
i ercio.i was impracticable, and that their only hope wat
* in* I&.obstruction of the government upou a durable
basis, liu- iito.it/ and coDtord betweeu the two eectioui
of the Uuioo had beeu destroyed by the Republieac
’ (strly. lie wished W God l\e Seuator from Pennsylva
nia would furnish him aith au excq. lor staying in the

Mr. Cameron said the South had stricken dowQ the in
i icrt' li of Pennsylvania, yet the latter had stood by to*
South ana tl*e Union. It the South would tell her w rong!

Mr. Saulsbury said the tone of the Senator from Penis

; u grnat good might result. H triuon v might be restored
l and instead of & mere uuion of lakes and lands, ihet
might Lave one of Ucw a;.d bends, which would oon
i Unue forever.
Mr. Crittenden opposed the postponement of his ru-u,

Laid on tbe table.
Mr. English introduced a resolution setting forth that
in the present condition of the country, it was the
opinion of this House that the passage of the Crittenden
resolutions was the best method of compromise fo • tbe
country. Objected to from the republican side of tho
Mr. English said he wished it to go firth to the coun
try that the republicans refused even to allow a vote upon
the propositions for conciliation and compromise.
Mr. Grow said that that side of the House would vote
when and as they p’eastd.
Mr. Mortis, of III., introduced propositions looking to
the recognition of slavery servitor or labor by the Con
stitution of the United Slates.
Mr. Burnett called for the regular order of business.
Tbe Speaker said that the hnU'- of o*ie o’clock having
strived, the special order t f this day and this hour, name
ly, was the report of the committee of thirty-three, and
that the gentleman from Ohio, Mr. Corwin, was entitled
to the floor.
Mr. Cot win would not occupy the time of the House
at length. He was there to discharge the du y which
devolved upou him as chairman of the committee of
thirty-three, and to present their repott. It was now
thirty years since he had Ids sent upon that tlcor. Two
years after that time, ho had been called uyo.i to report
in this character on a subject which was very near akin,
if not identical with that which now unhappily distracted
the public mind from one end of this republic to the
other. As at that lime a portion of the southern people,
led on, as now, by South Carolina, were sgi'ated hy a
similar question, and declared, in a convention of her
people, that a certain act ol Congress, known as the
genera! law, for the collection of revenue*, iu the shape ol
inports, imposed on foreign merchandise, wes uncon
stitutional, and upon that the State determined to absolve
the coiuttiott bonds which held them to the remaining
Slates of the Union.
It (South Carolina) then determined for herself, as her
purpose, that as tho purport was announced, that tho act
ol collecting duties on foreign merchandize was uncon
stitutional, and in its nature and put pose oppressive to
the people of South Carolina, announced that under that
bcli’-f she would withdraw from the Union, and cst&Ll sh
at. independent Kepublic of her own. It was then staled
that tbe passage by the Legislature of a State was sul
fi lent ground* of withdrawing from the Union of any
other State or States iu case that State or States should
choose to consider that law as a breach of contractor
the compact which bound them tegetner.
He liuie thought when that unhappy question was set
i! 1 that when so near to tbe close ol his natural life and
of hi- poli ieal career he should be edit d to legidali
ov regain wit' reference to thecriiicelagitation ol ItbU
*83 He himself did not believe t* at aVtatc, even though
il be a seceding Stale, could bo marched upon hv an
armed force in order to enforce laws, provid d that poli
i y would endanger the peace and d slurb the trai quility
ot th it State and that political oiganiaation.
As will night the greatest empire* of th* wotld de

t! the Southern States that wj- deemed sufficient cause
to dissolve their couuectiou r.ud intercourse with the
Uniou, and declare itself free fiom ail allegiauce ? They
said they were the petsocul liberty bills. It must lie
kuowu that all laws passed by States contrary to the
Constitution trite null and void, or else the Constitution
which regulated th< tu was null android; and it was
hardly possible that the latter would be the case, as the
Constitution was still acknowledged to be the supreme
law of the laud. This slavery, as they were pleased to

but be that as it might, he would call it theology, di

traclion of the country. The South had, lie xaid, more
territory than they ccu'd pos ibly wotk, and yet they

Tn* Amalgamation or Languages.—There is * grow
ing tendency in this age to approptiale the most express
ive words ol other languages, aud after a while to incor
porate them into our own; thus the word Cephalic, which
is fioin the Greek, signifying "for the head,” is now be
j coming popularix d in connection wih Mr Spalding’s
1 great Headache remedy, hut it will soon be used iu a
more genera! way, and the word Cephalic will become as
common us Electrotype aud tusny others whose distinc
tion as foreign words has been worn away by common
usage uutil they seeut ‘ native and to the manor born."

CW” Hsaiurn* is the favorite sign hv which nntnie
makes known any deviation nhatev<r from the t at ral
slate of the brain, and viewed in this light it may l»e look
ed on as a safeguard intended to give uolice of disease
which might otherwise es<" t e attention,till too late to I e
remedied; and its indications should never hc'ncghen d.
Headaches may he classified tinder two names, vix ;—
Symptom itic and Idiopathic. Symptomatic Headache is
exceedingly common and is the precursor of a great va
r eiy of diseases, among which are Apoplexy, Gout,
Rheumatism, and nil fehrile diseases. In its nervous form
it is sympathetic of disease of the stomach, constituting
nick luadache, of hepatic disease, constituting biliaun
heevlache, of worms, constipation arid other disorders ol
the bowels, as well as renal and uterine rtfections. Dis
eases of the heart arc very frequently att nd d with
Headaches; Ana-mia ani plethoria ate aho affections
which frequently occasion headache. Idiopathic Head
ache is al.-o very common, being usually distinguished by
the name of nervou* hnaduchc, sometimes cotnit g on sud
denly in u state of apparently sound health and prostrat
ing at ouie the mental and physical energies, and in oth
er instances it comes on slowly, heralded by depression of
spirits or aet-rbity of temper. In most instances the pain
Is in the front of the bead, over one or both eyes, mid
s ometimes provoking vomiting; tinder this class may al
so be named Neuralgia.
For the treatment of either class of Headache the Ceph
alic Pills have been found a sure and safe remedy, r< -
lieving the most acute pains in a few ni'niltes, and by its
subtle power . radicating the diseases of which Headache
is the unerring index:
HninoET.—Missus wants you to send lirr a box of fe
philu! Glue, no, n bottle of Preparei Pills—but I’m
thinking that’s not just it naither; hut perhaps yt-’il h
after knowing what it is. Yo s-e she’s nigh dead aud
gone with the Sn.k Headache, aud want4 some more ol
that same as n lieved her before.
nr>i>mi*t.— i on must mean Spalding - Cephalic P.lls.
Bridget.— Och! sine now and you've sed it; here's
the qualifier, and giv me the Pilla and don’t he all da^
about it aither:
Const i put! on or Cowtivencsa.
No one cf the “mauy ills that Hesb is heir to” is so
prevalent, so little understood, and so much neglected as
Costiveness. Often originating in carelessness, or seden
tary habits, it is regarded as u slight di order of too lit
tle cousequetice to excite anxiety, while in reality it is
a preecursor and companion ol many of the most fuisl
and dangerous diseases, and unless early eradicated it
will bring the sufferer to an untimely grave. Among
the lighter evils ol which costive ness is the ncu«! attend
ant, are Headache, Colic, Rheumatism, Foul Breath, I'iley
and others of like nature, while a long tmiu of frightful
diseases, such as Malignant Fevers, Abscesses, Dysen
tery, Diairhiei, Apoplexy, Epilepsy, Paralysis, Hysteria,
Hypoehondria-is, Melancholy and Insanity, first indicate
tin ir pn seuce in the system by this alarming symptom
Not unfrrquently the diseases named originate in Consti
pation, but take on an independent existence unless the
cause is eradicated in an early stage. From all th-*e
considerations it follows that the diso-der should receive
immediate attention whenever it occurs, and no person
should neglect to get a box of Cephalic Pills on the first
ttpp. arance of the complaint, as their timely use will ex
pel the insidious approaches of disease and destroy this
dangerous foe to human life.
A Itcul lllrulng.
Phyaieian.—Well, Mrs. Jones, how is that hrr.d iche
Mr*. ./<•»«.—(tone! Doctor, all gone! the pill you
sent cured u.e in just twenty minutes, and I wish yon
would send more so that I can have them handy.
Phytic!.in —You can g. ( them at any Druggists. Call
for Cephalic Pills, I find they never fail, and I recom
mend them in all eases of Headache,
Mr*. ./■ «/».—I shall send fof a bo* directly, and shal
tell all my suffering friends, for they are a real bleating.
Twenty Mimosa ok Dollar* saved.—Mr. Spalding
has Hold two millions of bottli of his eel brat-d Pn
pated (flue, and it is r-'iin-ited tl a' each bottle saves at
h aBt ten dollars worth of biokcn furniture, thus nuking
an aggregate of twenty millions ol dolltri reclaimed
from total loss by this valuable invention. Having made
his Glue n household word, he now proposes to do thi
world still greater service by curing all the aching heads
with hi t Cephalic Pills, and if they are as good as his
Glue, Headaches will soon vanish away like snow in July.
Over Excitement, and the mental care and anxiety
incident to close attention to business or study, ar"c
among die numerous causes of Nervous Headache! The
disordered state of mind and hodv incident to this dis
tres-ing complaint is a fatal blow to all ene gy and am
bition. Sufferers by this disorder can nlways obtain
sjs** dv relief from these distressing attacks by using one
of the Cephalic I'tlls whenever the symptoms appear.—
It quiets the overtasked brain, and soothes i„e *truined
and jatring nerves, at J relaxes the tension of the atom
aeh which always accompanies anJ aggravates the disor
dered condition ol the brain.
Fact worth KNOwnto.—Spalding's Cephalic Pills are
a emaili cure for dick Headache, Hilious Headache, Ner
vouH Headache, Costiveness and General Debility.
Great Discovfi'.v.—Among the moat important of all
tho great mi dical discoveries of this age may be consid
ered the svstem of vaccination for protection from Small
Pox, the Cephalic Pill foi relief of Headache, and the
use of Quinine for the prevention of Fevers, either of
which is a sure .specific, whose benefits nil! be experienc
ed by suffering humanity long after their discoverers are
tyDid you ever have the Sick Headache? Do you
remember the throbbing temples, the fevered hrow, the
loathing and digust at the sight of food. How totally
unfit you were for pleasure, cjtpVMRitiun or studv. One
of the Cephalic Piiis would have relieved yon from all
the suffering which you then experienced. For t! ia and
other purposes you should always have a box of tl era on
hand to uae as occasion requires.
