yulii/icaivn Sentiment.—The followingques- ,
on „ arked b.v the Charleston Mercury, the
h,et Nullification print in South Carolina:
.. And what is meant by being a citizen of the
|-"ited States? Strictly speaking, there is no
• cm thing!—fur it »* utterly impossible that
individual should be a citizen of the 24
{rates 0f which the Union is composed. Who
opposes that a citizen of Carolina is a citizen of
i^!r-/u? Or that a citizen of Georgia is a citizen
j Massachusetts? It is utterly impossible!” I
\\ hit intelligent American lines not see through
•ne drift of the foregoing? There is no man who
• with a modicum of common sense, that
WKi;,| not be ashamed to undertake a serious re
tuU’ion of what is here put forth, with a fervent
Vppe. mf doubt, that it should be blindly recog
j as the •• true doct ine of State rights.”
On the first day of the present month two
ninls i»f the Three per cent, stocks of the Unit
ed States were paid off—about eight millions of
dollars. Of this amount it is piobable *ix mil
luini belonged to foteigners. Of this six mil
lion*, it i» further probable two-thirds at least—
f the charter of the Bauk of the United States
hid been renewed, as bv a decisive vote iu both ,
Houses of Congress the people aud the States of
this Union determined that it should be,—would j
have been reinvested in that Bank; and thus
have in*ured to the American stock holders sel* j
ling out, advantageous prices, and have liberated j
a'i equal amount of American capital, to relieve )
fne pressure in the money market, and to vivify, I
and give impulse to, other departments and ;
bunvl.es of American industry.
Maryland Flection. —We have the returns
from all the counties in Maryland. The House
of Delegates will be—Anti Jackson 55; Jackson
•’3. The Senate all Anti-Jackson. The Anti
Jackson Counties are Prince George, Somerset,
Worcester. Dorchester, Caroline, Talbot, Kent,
St. Mirv's, Charles, Calvert, VloutgtMnery, Anne
Arundel, ami Annapolis City. The Jackson
Counties are Washington, Baltimore City anti
County, Harford, and Cecil. Alleghany sends
1 Anti-Jackson, $ Jackson members; Frederick,
2 Anti-Jackson, 2 Jack-on; Queen Ann, 2 Anti
Jackson, 2 Jackson. From present appearances
we presume Jackson will get but three of the
electoral votes of the State.
Pennsylvania Flection —The electi-ms com
mence this day in Pennsylvania. F.very inch
of ground will be contested. The struggle will 1
be ardent, because it is the preparatory movement j
to the grand effort that is to be made next month :
at the Presidential election.

A ««• Tragedy.—Dr. Birds* new Tragedy s»f
Oraloosa is highly spoken of by the critics who
have read it. It is shortly to b« produced in
Philadelphia, Forest playing the principal cha
racter, Tor whom, indeed, the play was written.
l)r. Bird bids fair to shine as a diamatic writer:
he gamed great fame for his Gladiator, and Ora
loosa is said to be superior to that production.—
The story of the piece and a plot of the plav are
given in the New York Eveuing Post, which, to
us, shows rather too much complexity.
Senator Poindexter.—Several entertainments
have been given to this gentleman, by his friends
in Mis-issippi, since his return from Congress.—
nr ha* proved himself an independent Senator, I
and theicfote deserves the honors of his cnnstitu- J
ents; hut, iu these party times independence is j
a trait of character not highly valued by parti-;
sans; ami therefore we have no hopes that Mr. 1
Poindexter will he supported beyond his present i
term, unites indeed, there should be a great re
volution ol political sentiment in nis state, which, J
according to all accounts, is chained to the car '
of the hero. . ■ - —— ,

Italian Opera.—Great exertions have been
made to establish an Italian Opera, permanently,
in this country. If the present company in New
York is patronised, so as to retain its services, it
is contemplated to build a new Opera House ex
pressly as such, to be used entirely by Italian
and French companies, for city assemblies, &c.
Weie> Poem. — We learn that Messrs. Carter,
Hendee & Co. have in the press a Poem, by a
distinguished gentleman, who is better known as
a statesman and diplomatist, than as a wooer of
the muses. The poem is a Historical Tale of
the twelfth Century, in four cantos, and the sub
ject of it is the conquest of Ireland, by Henry
the Second. We hope that the success of the
author, in this effort, may be as brilliant as that
which he achieved in his new career of duty in
the national legi&latuie last winter.

Agricultural Report oj It eat her and Crops in
the vicinity of Sew York for September.
[Prep in d f >r the New York Duly Advertiser ]
September has proved to be unusually pleasant
throughout, with rather more ram than common
—the grass is consequently very luxuriant for the
season, and paaluies are nearly as good as in
the month of June. Should the weather contin
ue favorable this will help out the winter fodder,
which is much needed, owing to the small stock
of hay remaining over last spring, and the light
crop of grass cut this season.
Corn, which is an important crop in this vici
nity, has been exceedingly backward, owing to
the late period of planting and the continuance
of the cold weather, which kept the plant back.
Many were fearful thai an eailv frost might af
fect the car in the milk. The. fine weather of
August and September has caused the corn to
ripen; it is now out of danger and many of the
fields a> e cut and in stack, the crop is full an
average one, perhaps more.
Potatoes will turn out well, but owing to the
high price of seed potatoes 'ast Spring and Win
ter, the quantity put into the ground was less
than usual and the crop will consequently be
small.
(Jarilen Vegetal tea have been good the whole
season; but owing co the Cholera, but few have
been brought to market; ami full half the crop
raised, has been suffered to rut on the ground
wit >out being gathered. A change has now ta
k* n place, and the markets are well supplied at
reasonable prices
Pruitt — Late Peaches have been more abun
dan: than usual, and have sold at lower prices
than common. Apples are abundant, but like
early vegetables are hardly worth" bringing to
market, the demand having been small from fear
of Cholera.
Buckwheat—is unusually fine, and farmers
have commenced cutting and housing their crops.

|>-ar Sir—It is now upwards of twenty yea t that I
have used your New London Bilious Pills in my tami
b, and always found them an efficient purgative in al*
most every description of disease. I never found their
accustomed certainty to vary in their operation and ef
ft-cis, until a few months past, and having since then
b. en sadly disappointed in every instance of using
them—1 began to conclude that you had nude jour
fortune, and had abandoned their manufaettft* to mer
cenary and unfaithful hands. Under this impression I
accidentally saw an advertisement of your** in a New
York newspaper, designating spurious imitations from
your own manufacture, by having your written signa
ture to each bill of directions, and that in no instance
were the imitations signed with pen and ink, although
a perfect copy in every otner respect Finding ‘base
I had without this test, I began to auapect *!»** “ “"
was not fair in medicine, as well as in politics, and
called at several of our apothecaries for your pills, with
your written signature. I procured a box, an i, onua
ing them; found the same effects from them I had at.
ways expciienc d, and am to much r joiced on finding
mj self in possession cf a .nedicine I so highly prue,
that I cannot injustice refrain from giving you this ID
^nlope and trust, Sir, for the benefit of mankind,—
th't yoP,r valuable m dicine will be perpetuatedin ,U
original quality, and that mercenary mutations may be
frowned upon by an ioaulted community. I ain, Sir,
yourfrien ^ imposition of Counterfeits nnd
sounous imitations, as related above, the purchaser has
only to examine the bill of directions covering each
Box, and if signed at foot, in my own hand writing,
immediately under my printed name, they are genuine
■nd prepared by me. but if obit the printed name la
«(fixed, they are spurious and to be avoided.
