Vnited&aiu a Jnuriem. ' Wdbit,' to tbe coarse of human events, It becomes necessary for one people to dissolve tbe political bonds which have, connected tbem with another, and to assome among the powere of tbe earth the separate and equal station to wbich tbe laws of nature and na ture's Uod eotitle tbem, s decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they sbonld declare the causes which impel tbem to the separation. We bold these truths to be self evident, tbat all men are created equal, tbat they are endowed by their ererator with certain una lienable rights; tbat among these are lire, liberty, and the-pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are Insti tuted among men, deriving tbeir just powers from tbe consent of the governed ; that when ever any form of government becomes de structive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a oew government, laying its foundation on snch principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect tbeir safety and happiness. Pro dence, indeed, will dictate, that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient canses j and, accordingly, all eiperieoce batb shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abol isbing tbe forms to which tbey are accustom ed. But when a long train of abuses and nsnrpations, pursuing invariably tbe same object, evinces a design to reduce tbem under absolute despotism, it is their duty to throw off such government and to -provide new guards for tbeir future security. Such has been tbe patient snfTerance of these colonies j and such is now the necessity wbich con strains tbem to alter the former system of government. Tbe history of the present king of Hi eat Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, ell having in direct object, tbe establishment of ao absolute ty ranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world : He has refused his assent to laws tbe most wholesome aod necessary for the public good. He baa forbidden bis governors to pass laws of immediate end pressing importance, onleta suspended in tbeir operation, till his assent should be obtained ; and when so ins pended, he has utterly neglected to attend to tbem. He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of peo ple, unless these people would relinquish tbe right of representation in the legislature a right inestimable to tbem, and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places onosoal nucdnifortable, and distant from the repository of their poblio records, for the sole purpose of fatigoing tbem into a compliance with his measures. He has dissolved representative houses re pante Jly,- for opposing, ilb.muly Simoess, bis invasions on the rights of tbe people. He has refused, for a long time after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected ; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, bave returned to tbe people at large for their exercise, the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without aod convulsions within. He has endeavored to prevent tbe popula tion of these states : for that purpose ob structing tbe laws for naturalization of for eigners; refusing to pess others to encoorage their migration hitber, and raisiug the condi tions of new appropriations of land. He has obstructed the admiaislratiori of justice, by refusing his assent to lavs for establibhiDg judiciary powers. He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of tbeir offices and tbe amount and payment of tbeir salaries. He has erected a multitude or offices, and sent bitber swarms of officers, So bartes our people, and eat out their substance. He has kept among ns in times of peace standing armies, without tbe consent of our legislatures. He bas aQectnd to render tbe military in dependent of, and superior to, th) civil power. lie bas combined witb others to subject os to a jurisdiction foreign to oor constitution. aod unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to tbeir acts or pretended legislation : For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us For protecting tbem, by a mock trial from ponisbmeot, for any mnrdere wbich they should commit on tbe inhabitants of these states : For cutting off oor trade witb all parts of the world : For imposing taxes on os without our con sent t For depriving os, in many cases, of tbe benefit of trial by jury not transporting ns beyond seas, to be tried for pretended offences s For abolishing tbe free system of English raws is neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarge, ing its boundaries so as to render it at ooce ao example and Cl instrument for introducing tne same absolute rule into these colonies : For taking away our sbarters, abolisbiog our most valuable laws, nod altering fun da- mentally, tbe forms of our government : For suspending our own legislatures and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for os In all cases whatsoever: He bas abdicated government bere, bv de daring us out of bis protection, and waging war against os.. lie has plundered oor seas, ravaged our eoasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives ot our people. tie is at this time transporting large er mies of foreign mercenaries, to complete tbe works of deatb, desolalioo aod tyranny el- ready begun, with circumstances of cruelty aod perfidy, scarcely paralleled in tbe most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the bead of a civilized nation. He bas constrained our fellow citizens, t ken captive oa tbe high seas, to bear arms against tbeir country, to become tbe execo tiotere of their friends and brethren, or to fall tbemaelvee by tbeir bands. lie bas excited domestio Insurrections against ns, and has endeavored to bring on tbe inhabitants of oar frontiers, tbe merciless ludiao savages, whose known role of warfare is an ondistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes end eonditinns. - In every stage of thtse oppression, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms j our repeated petitions bave been an swered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character la thus marked by every act whioh may define a tyrant, unfit to be tbe ruler of a free oeooie. Nor have we been venting in attention to oar British brethren. We have warned tbem from time to Urns of attempts by tbeir legis latere to extend so wewarraoubl juriadie tvo ever m. We have ismluded theas of the circumstances of emigration and settle men! hare. We bave annealed to their native justice and magnanimity and we have conjured them, by the lies or our common Kinorea to disavaw these usurpations,- which would in evitably Interrupt oor connexions and corres pondence, They too have been dear id tne voice of Justice aod of consanguinity. We must therefore acquiesce iu the necersity which denounces our separation, and bold them as hold tbe rest of mankind, enemtrsin war in peace, Jriendi. We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in general con- Sress eesmbled, appealing to the supreme udge of the world, for tbe rectitude of oor iotentioni, do in tbe name and by the authority of tbe good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare that there Uni ted Colonies, are, and of right ought to be, free and Independent states; that tbey er absolved from all allegiance to tbe British crown, and that all political connexion be tween them find tbe state of Uteat Britain, is, and ought to be, totally dissolved ; and tbat. ae free end Independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which inde pendent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, witb a firm reli aoce an the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other oca livrs, OCR FORTUNES AND OCR SACRED HONOR. John Hancock.

On the day succeeding the adoption of tbe Declaration of ludepeuJeuf.e.-y .ni Auams, exulting in tbat glorious eveut, addressed a letter to Mrs. Aduuis in which may be found tbe following spirited, patriotic and prophet io paragraph : Yesterday the greatest question vtas deci- : ded tbat was ever debated io America j aud greater, greater, perhaps, nevtr was or Willi be decided among men. A resolution was passer), without one dissenting coloov. "that these United States are, and of right ought to be, free and Independent Stales." Tbe day is passed. Tbe fourth of July 1776. will be a memorable epoch in tbe history of Ame rica. I am apt to believe it will be celebrated by succeeding generations, as the great anniver' sary festival. It tught to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to Almighty God. It oogbt to be solemnized witb pomM. shows, games, sports, guns, bon fires und illuminations, from one end of the continent to the other, from this ttme forward foreotr. Yon will think me trans. ported witb enthusiasm, but 1 am not, 1 am well aware of the toil, aod blood, aod trea sure, that it will cost to maintain this declar ation, and support and defend these states : yet, through all the gloom, lean see the rays of l-.-L. ...... ..t I .

General Scott's age is a subject of frequent inquiry, and we bave heard it alleged in bis case, as in that or ex-President Buchanan, tbst tbe ladies privilege of curtailing Time has been exercised ; but the worthy Cant. Pratt, wbo venerates General Scott, and is well posted, informs us tbst tbe bero was bora on the 13tb of June, 1786. He will consequently be but sevecty-five on Thurs day, Judo 13, 1661, and may hope to live ten years yet, with such a constitution as be bss. The famous Austrian field marshal Radetzky was past eighty when be defeated tbe youth ful hero of Sardinia, Charles Albert, father of Victor Kmmaouel, and lived, we think, to tne age of ninety. General Harney was displaced from tbe command of tbe troops in Missouri, io conse quence or having enterud into a sort or ar rangement with tbe commander of tbe State troops. This was much disapproved of by the Government, as it was a sort of quasi re cognition of the Southern military as a sepa rate eutity. Also bis refusal to protect tbe Union men in venous parts of tbe state, rrom the cruelties of tbe Seeessioo fiends, or of al lowing tbem to form Home Guards for tbeir own protection. 1 be Government baa not removed Harney from the command of the Western Military Department; but simply detatcbed Missouri from that Department, and connected it with tbe command of Uen. McLellac. Wben Gen. Butler moved the Massachu setts Sixth Regiment from tbe Relay station ioto Baltimore, the rebel spies supposed the troops were bound to Harper's Ferry, aod killed two horses in expressing the informa tion to tbat point. The General fairly palled the wool over tbeir eyes. Tbe locomotives that were to draw the train were placed upon tbe track beading towards Harper's Ferry, and backed tbe cars down tbe other way, toward Baltimore, so that tba spies tbat trot, ted oCT with the oews tbat tbey were bona! for the Ferry, were thoroughly misled. Tub Peons of Pennsylvania have taken, at par, the three million loan, authorized by tbe late Legislature for arming tbe State and sustaining tbe Geneaal Government. No faet could be more honorable to the patriotism and liberality ef our fellow-citizens. Now that tbe people bav so abundantly furtrisbad tbe Government with means, do time meet be lost in applying tbose means to tbe accom. plisbmeot of tbe purposes contemplated by Legislature.

For tbe past six or seven weeks a young girl named Maggie Wilson formerly resident witb her sister-in-law in the Fourteenth ward, K, D, has been missing from her homo, and all attempts to discover her whereabouts bave been unsuc cessful. Tuesday, however, information Was received by her friends that Maggie bad actually gone to the war in the capacity of au able bodied private io Copt. Smith's com pany of Col. Townsend's regiment. It will be remembered that upon the first breaking oat of hostilities, Capt, Smith was active in getting up a company at Williams burg, a large number of the members being from the Fourteenth and Fifteenth wards.

Hut beiDg attentive to his duties, and rapidly attaining a degree of proficiency io his new profession, be toon became a favorite with all bis comrades. Yesterday a letter was received in Wil- liamabnrg, wbich relieves tbe anxiety of Maggie's rrieods, and exhibits a singularly romantic episeode io tbe bistery of military recruiting. Tbe following extract from the letter discloses tbe particulars, so far as tbey are Known t "Perhaps you remember a young fellow io our company wbo went by tbe name of Char ley Marshall, a sby and rather good looking cbsp, wbo seemed to be made of Goer snug than the reet of os fellows. But be walked into tbe good graces of tbe officers, without getting any of tbe boys down on biro, so we kinder let bim bave his own way. "Well, this fellow turns out to be a girl named Maggie Wilson, who was missed about the time our company was formed. How tbe discovery of her sex was made, 1 bav'ut been able to find out, but yesterday, I know, she wss doing duty la tbe ranks in the same toggery as the rest of tbe boys, aod in a man ner equal to tbe best of uh. This morning, in a different rig (and a much prettier one) she was introduced to the regiment as 'Char ley, tbe Vivandiere,' and we were inked if we would adopt ber.

He was bnldinf fust bis left wrist, while two streams of blood were running from one of bis Sogers, whore tbe faugs of the snake bad entered. As the man did not use tobacco, I told bim to fill bis mc-uth.wilh salt and suck as bard as be could at his woonds. I next kept a rsg well satu rated witb hartshorn on the wonnd, to conn teract the poison. 1 then put thirty drop! of hartshorn io a teacopful of whiskey, and poured It down bis throat. Iu five minutes 1 repeated this dose, aod in . fire minutes more I gave him another just like it. By this time I bad given bim a full quart or strong whiskey and ninety drops of hartshorn, and thought the load was sufficient. Tbe man Was so Irishman, an old soldier, and took tbe matter quite cool'y. It was a great satisfaction to bim to know ibat another man bad killed tbe snake, wbiob was coiled nuder rail he was moving in tbe yard, not ten eteps from tbe bouse.

Tbe following recapitulation affords useful information to volunteers and tbeir families 1st. After being mustered into tbe service oftbeUuitcd btates, volunteers are entitled to tbe same pay as regular troops. 2d. If disabled by wounds received io the service or by disease contracted in tbe service, tbey are eBtitled to an invalid pension during Imp, or so long as tbo disability continues. 3d. If any are killed or die in the service of tbe united btates, leaving a widow, she Is en titled to what pay was due ber husband and a pension. It there is no widow, the children of such volunteer are entitled to the pay and pension until tbey are sixteen years of age. 4th. If there is no widow or child under six teen years of age, the other beiis of decent are entitled to tbe pay due tbe volunteer al tbe time of bis deatb no pension. At this time neither the volunteer nor any beir is en tilled td land-warrants, but there is no doubt ao act of Congeess will be passed early in Ju ly, granting one Hundred uud sixty acres to every volunteer wbo shall serve fourteen days, or engage in battle and be honorably dis charged nrst the w.dow, second to the cbil dren, third to the mother, fourth to tbe fath- er : and iiail tbo foregoing beirs be dead, u'tu to tbo brothers and sisters of those wbo may so serve and die without receiving a warrant, in like manner as tbe volunteers wbo served in Mexico are now rewarded. Seamen and others who take prizes, and tbose performing meritorious feats, will undoubtedly be reward ed witb tbe froits of their valor. Those pstri- j otic men and women who suffer from robbery in tbe slave Btates, under tbe name of coons- cation, will almost certainly be rowarded, ac cording to tbe scripture rule, four-fold from tne property or tbe rebels all 'state contuca tions being wholiy illegal and mere orgaoiz ed piracy will be punished, and Congross will undoubtedly past a proper and enectual act whereby tbe United Stales Courts will take from tbe unfaithful and onjut-l stewards what property they may bave, uod give it to the faithful and true servants. 5th. In addition to what lbs volunteers and heirs aro entitled to uud may become entitled to from tbe United Slates, tbe several States bave passed, and will pass acts granting pay rrom tbe state Treasury. Seizure of the Telegraph Despatches A Disclosure. The Richmond Examiner, referring to the seizure of all the telegraphio despatches iu tbe North for tbe last twelve uioutbs, makes the revelation of tbe way in which a tele graphio operator in Washington City worked out tbe schemes of tbe bootbern traitors : When it became necessary for the south Caroline Commissioners to seud tbeir first despatch aunoaociog the perfidy of Buchanan and Holt, tbe intention or Ibd former to rein force Fort Sumter, aod tbeir advice to tbuir State to resist it by force, a messenger came to tbis city to send it with certainty and se cresy This was done abont tbe first of Jan uary. But soon after it was found that there was one man in tbe Washington onice wbo could be trusted Implicitly by our people, and we are glad to record that it was a yeung Virginian, William Cowell by name. Tbis young man, by private arrangement, received the Southern despatches, sent tbem himself, and filed them away io a private safe. No one saw them but himself and tbe parties to wbom tbey were addressed. All throngb Juuuary, February, March, and part of April, this geutlemeu aclud lor oor friacds.

In a lata" nun' ber of th. Country Gentleman, an old and succeasfuf farmer communicates bi experience in cultivating different vaiictic of po' tatoes. l tils is tbe only way to get at reliable facts on this, td producers and consumers, im porlant subject. A bad potaloe is execrable, but where is there a vegetable more deairabla, more nutritious, or more wholesome than a well cooked good potaloe 1 Mr. T. saj s : Tbe different varieties cultivated wore tba Prince Albert, the DaviB' seedling, tbe Jersey peach blow, end Garnet Chili also fetf black mercers, acd tbe Jackson white and New Hartford. They wete plaotud, about one and a half acres, on sod land, and about tbe same amount of land tbat had been cul tivated tbe year preceding. The result is in favor of the Prince Albert as the best yielder, also lees liable to rot, atid tbe best potato to) eat wben raised. Davis' eeedliog 1 do not consider worthy of cultivation, on my farm at least ; and how it could attain its popularity 1 do not see, nnlesB those persons engaged iu its culture praised it too highly, as 1 think tbey bave done, for tbeir interest no doubt, but to tbe detriment of tbose purchasing it, as in my owo case it yields no better than tbs Prince Albert, and on the same soil nod situation it rots badly, having lost about one half tbe crop, either before or after putting ioto tbe cellar, and then not noar as good a potato to eat. Tbe peach blow has proved tender witb me, aod Garnet Cbili has too deep eyes, and is watery witb me. Tbat potato I think mnch of, however, and shall try it again this year, and hope it will prove itself belter than last. Tbe Alberta I bave bad in cultivation for three years, and it bas uniformly been good, and a great yielder. The Davis seedling for two years bas proved poor on some soil ; tbut, with its deep eyes and rank taste, causes me to condemn it. Tbo peach blow, only one year on trial, it bas disappoiuted me, but shall try it again. The New Hartford is a very good potato, yielding well, and of fine quality. The Jack son white docs not yiuld well with me, but is good early potato : its deep eye is an ol joc tion to it.

Tbo idea tbat potatoes of different varieties" (as advocated by some of your correspond- ents,) will mix by being planted together, does not agree with my experience; conse quently I cannot believe that they will do so, as 1 have bad repeated opportunity to observe such cases, but never cSuld discover a single case of mixture. , Wash for Applfl and Other Fruit Trees. One of the beet methods for preserving tbe health aod promotion the vigor and fruit fulness of fruit trees, is to wash tbem fre' queotly witb somo liquid capable of destroy ing tbe parisitical piants and in.teots which adhere to the surface of the bark, sod sap the vital energies by a constant drain of tba circulating current. A liquor formed of one pound cf whale oil soap to n bucket of water is now generally used for this purpose. A ley of wood ashes, rather dilate is also excel lent. The liquid should be applied with a coarse rag, which will remove the moss, and dislodge the insects which may have obtsiued a lodgement on tbe bark, By giving tba trees iu your orchards and gardens, two or three gooil washings during tbe season, care being bad to wet every part of tbe surface of the trunks, tbe iusecls es wsll as tbe mosses will be effeotaally removed, acd the bark left iu a beautiful and healthy condition- April June aod August are the months io which washing may be practiced with tbe best results, though when one csa afford time a good thorough scrubbing every mooih daring tbe growing season, would be still better. If the trees ate old aod thickly iocrufted witb moss, it should be scraped off carefully befor applying tbe wash. A coarse piece of coffee or cotton bag may be used for scrubbing, and coarser it is Ihe better. Brush brooms par tially worn, may answer well, where the sur face is rough and very mossy ; but oa young trees, the bagging is preferable, and used with much greater efficiency and case. Boz.
