ALEXANDRINE- C.
TVPSl) \ V MORNING, APRIL S3*
CONGRESS.—In the Senate yesterday, the
Texi tn Treaty was sent in, and the Senate J.m.ie
diately went into Executive session for thr pur
pose of entering upon its consideration. The doc
ument'* aecompan) mg the 1 feat) were ordered to
be printed.
In the House of Representatives, yesterday, the
motion to reconsider the Bdi lor improving W ext
ern Rivers and Harbors which passed on Satin da)
was rejected—and the bill goes to the senate.
Mr. McKay then moved that the House resolve
iUelf into Committee of the Whole on the State of
the Union, for the purpose of taking up the land
Bill reported by the Committee of Ways and
Means, going to modify, and reduce the present
Tariff.—Upon this motion, after a call of the
House, the Ayes and Noes were taken, and re
sulted a* follows—Ayes 104—Noes 1)4. So the
House resolved itself into a Committee of the
Whole, Mr. Hopkins of \a., in the Chair, and
proceeded to consider the New I arid Bill. Mr.
C J. Ing^rsoll moved to amend the bill so as to
postpone its operation until the I-t of January
next, and upon this an animated debate arose,
and was kept up until the adjournment.
THE VIRGINl \ EJECTION will take place
on Thursday, and as we shah not hii\o, ihrougo
our country paper, another opportunity *o address
our Whig friends in the ad j inirtg counties, we
take this occasion, »n view oi the gt'eat ir/iportuuce
of the contest, to urge them r^un to go to the
polis at their respective precincts, and vote
for the IJ’% Cin lhUiS. By so voting they will
ka.vif.rr iixfti.pjiHplvus and to tne*i
country. And urgent, indeed, and overpower
in'^ must bo the reason, which should indu*. c
any Whig, to be absent from the polls, or even to
lessen h;s zeal in the good cause. On thin,
Whigs, to the rescue!
PUBLIC .MEETING.—An interesting Whig
meeting will beheld at .dr. J- II. zSnumerman
this afternoon, nt 3 o'clock, P. M. Messrs.
Scheiick of Ohio, Chilton, and other gentlemen,
will address the meeting. e hope as many of
our Fairfax hig friends, as possible, will attend.
TIIE POTOMAC FISHERIES—Our ac
counts from the Potomac i* isherics continue to
be unfavourable, and, we regret to learn, that at
most of the landings very little has been done.
Should a change for the better not take place in
a very few days, the fishermen will close their
business for the season, f* ish, beta ^nnd arid
Herring, will, of course, bring high prices.
BIG AMY.—A man named, or w ho called him
lelf Ciif.vibkrlaix, about six feet high, dark hair,
and a down look, a coach and harness maker by
trade, was married in this place la^t D comber.
Since then, it has been ascertained he had been
previously married in Farmsville, \ a., where
his wife instill living. Upon the tact becoming
known, on Sunday last, a warrant was issued for
his arrest, hut he made his escape, and has not
since been seen or heard ot. From all that is now
known, it is thought best that the public every
where should be put on their guard against this
man. He has once gone by the name of A rule v"
•on. _
MR. WRIGHT'S SPEECH on the Tariff, in
the Senate, commenced on Saturday and to be
concluded yesterday, will be important as indi
cating and explaining Mr. \ an Ruren’s particu
lar views on the interesting subject under dis
cussion. An abstract of the Speech has been
published in the Globe, which we snail take an
early opportunity to lay before our reader*, in
order that they may have before them hetk sides
of the question.

CLAY CLUB BANNER.—Mr. Wm. McLeod
of Washington, is engaged in painting? mosjbeau
tiful banner, on white satin, for tho Alexandria
Clay Club, which will be finished this week. As
toon as the banner is completed, a description ot
the painting, motto, decorations, Me., will be
given.
It it said that six or seven hundred Delegates
to the Itaitirnore v onveniion, wm gu un
from the District of Columbia.
In the new London book, entitled Antigua and
the Antiguans, this anecdote is related of a free
negro, whose pride was that he could sign hi*
name, which was Macxamuu. One day, being
hurried for his signature, he wrote A/icuawiuMa
mama—and then turned to his companion, saying,
•‘Brother, tell me when rue done ; In-re, don't you
think it looks long enough rJ> What if the gentle
man in “possession of the door'’ with us should,
when a little tired him*eif, put a similar question
to his neighbor ? _ _
IOWA.—The people of Iowa have decided in
favor of forming a ^tato (Government. Dele
gates are to be elected next August to aConven
lion, which is to -assemble in October to form a
Constitution. At the next session of Congrev,
probably, Iowa will apply for admission into the
Union as a State.
CORRUPTION— !n our former remarks we
charged that Mr. Tyler had despatched a >pm ia!
mi>sion to this city for the purpose of purchas
ing partizaus in live Presidential campaign. Wt*
repeat the charge. That mission consisted of
Mr. Ty ler's son Robert more usually known
as Ahasuerus, his brother, Acting Presi tnt’s
son-in-law, and Dr. Sutherland of Philadelphia.
They came on here and opened a negotiation,
offered the Col lee tor* hip, t lie Surveyors!, ip, the
Navy Agency,fc.c &c., upon the sole stipula
tion that the nominees should swear fealty to
the remnant ot Mr. I'yler’s administratimi and
pledge themselves to assist him in obtaining an
other term. Some of the gentlemen to whom
these degrading proposals-were made treated I
them and the contemptible agency through which
they were offered precisely as they deserved._
They were rejected with utter scorn. Others,
however, ire understood to have been less fasti
dious, and did not scruple to come into the terms.
These men either are already or will very short
ly he before the Senate for confirmation to offices,
for which most of them are utterly unfit; and to
roake room for whom some of the ablest and
roost faithful officers in the whole public service i
have been displaced. Now, we have no idea of:
ur5,0K the Senate of ;he United States to reject
these nominations. That would be a work ot su
altogether, for vye know that body
will do its duty taithfully and fearlessly, and of
.coursv men nominated to office under such cir
cumstance, will be rejected; but the Senete has
•'IllgJur and more important duty to perform.—
/■ VWiSt tJUtiftftfc on inquiry into these circumstances,
tod oiotbe a •ommittee with ample powers for
! the purpose—giving it authority to send for per*,
sons and papers, a id to enter into strict scru iny j
of the case in ail its hearings, ferret out *he often- ;
ders of all grades and allstations, and make them
zire a full. not a partial and Imlf-smothcryd ac
count. of this most atrocious transaction.—A. i. (

SFf \MEFUL OUTRAGE-“On Tuesday eve-'
' nir.g la<t, as Mr. George Storrs, a peacher oft
Second Advent doctrines, was holding forth to a
crowded assemblage on the speedy dissolution ,
cf all things finite, at the South Church in Ports-,
month an explosion occurred, which almost
shook the building from its foundations. The ^u-;
die nee, we learn, were dreadfully frightened, and
i rushed out with strong indications of terror upon j
I terra firma. Upon search be#ig made, several
canisters of powder were discovered under a cor
ner of tne house, which had not exploded.”
What was the outrage? We should like to
know. And what caused the terrible explosion5
Canisters of unexploded powder were found un- j
tier the church, it seems, but they could not have !
caused the explosion! A* Well might the ladies ;
and gentlemen have cried, and run out of the ■
church from apprehension, because they found ■
ihenuelves clothed with combustible materials, j
T here is some mystery in ail this.—Lniled States •

j TRIAL OP THE GORDONS.—The trial
! of John Gordon and William Gordon, accused
' of th * murder of Amasa Sprague, having oceu
i puG the Supreme Court for nine days, was j
j brought to a close la t evening. The case was j
1 delivered to the jury at five o’clock, alter an j
elaborate charge from the Chief Justice. The
jury, after being out an hour and a half, return
ed with a verdict of guilty against John Gordon,
and not guilty as to William Gord on. Th° for:"- ’
er listened to the verdict with perfect calmness;
the latter was much affected. William wasdis
charged, and on parting both were much affect
I ed.—Pror. Journal.
| MR. DICKENS’ HOPE.—The last number of
Mar’::.'’huzzeiwitt contains the departure of Mr.
j Dickii.P heroes from America, and closes as fol- ;
i lows:
1 “Iflwnsa painter, and was called upon to
p'tint the American Eagle, how should 1 do it?”
“Paint it,” said Martin, “us like an Eagl? as

: like a.Magpie, for its honesty; like u Peacock,
j for its vanity; like an Ostrich, for its putting its
head in 1 lie mud, and thinking nobody sees it—”
“And like a Phoenix, for its power of spring
ling fro .» the ashes of its faults and vices, and
i soaring up anew into the sky P* said Martin.—

ANNEXATION.—Genera) Hamilton is out
on this question. Like General Green, he can
not keep silent—he must have a finger in every
pie. His letter is addressed to Mr. McDuffie,
and a paragraph from Mr. Webster’s letter is
made the text of it. The Gen. quotes with es
pecial emphasis Mr. M7ebster's remark that he is
unwilling to “add other slaveholding states to this
Union,” and further; that in his opinion the people
would not and ought not to consent to “bring a
uew,vastly extensive and staving holding country”
into the Union. These sentences inflame the Gen’l
at once, and he proceeds to meet the broad infer
ences which he thinks they warrant, with the
strongest kind of threats He infers that if Tex
as is not to be admitted into the Union because
it is populated by slaveholders, it is because
slaveholders are not fit to belong to the Tf-iinn.—
If this be so; if the North regard the inhanitants
of the slave states as a degraded caste, and tol
erate their connection with the Union on the
principle of mere sufferance, then the South had
better come out from the Union, or at least vindi
cate its dignity and political equality in the con
federation, by insisting that Texas shall be ad
mitted, if the refusal of her overtures is to he
based on this question of slavery in her borders.

j The progress of Science is like the devolope
i ment of Nature’s works, gradual and expansive;
I first the buds, then the leaves and blossoms, and
I after the blossoms the fruit. Among the valuable
fruits of Science, investigation and experiment,
may be classed Sands’s Sarsaparilla. The root
has"been known for centuries, hut the full pow

‘ proprietors claim, in the most disgusting forms
. of Scrofula, in glandular ulceration, in every
; disease or. the surface of the body, and in cases
! of general debility and prostration, as well as all
specific disorders traceable to the stomach and
others or ans employed in preparing the elements

Gailativ, Tenn., Feb, 27th, 1844.
^Messrs Ji. />. of J). $ imls:
Gentlemen—I have just received a letter
from my father in Russellville, Ky., who wishes
to purchase some of your Sarsaparilla. 1 have
i no doubt he can he the means of selling a gr* at
| d<*al, as it has performed a wonderful cure :n his
family. Last December I was sent for to see my
sister before she died, she hav ing been in poor
heaith for some two or three years; ut the time
I went over to see her she was at the point ot
death with the scarlet fever and a cancerous af
fection of the bowels, from which her physician
thought she could not possibly recover. 1 car
ried over with me a r«u!e of your Sarsaparilla,
and with the consent of her physician she com
menced taking it that night. 1 remained with
h*r three days, and left her rapidly improving.—
Mv husband sent ahoy homo with me lor more
of the Sarsaparilla. I sent one dozen bottles
which l helieve'will ctied an o’tire cure. My fa
ther writes tome tothatelVect, and wishes through
me to procure an agency for selling your valua
ble medicine in that neighborhood.

your Extract of Sarsaparilla since its introduc

Messrs. A. IF Sands & Co: Gentlemen — \ our
Extract of Sarsaparilla l as been very extensive
ly used ir. thi> city and the. neighboring towns
within the la«t year, and so far as my knowledge
extends, uniformly with su. cqss in a great va
riety ©f diseases of long standing and of a very
distressing and dangerous character, whi'hha**
resisted a lo* g list of remedial agents, it have been
| used—in many of them with complete success,
and inall, with decided benefit.
It is regarded by the Medical Profession as a
mcdi« ine of great clln acy in a numerous cl;m> of
disease's, such as inveterate constitutional com
plaints, when the system has been long diseased,
in case of long use or abuse of .Mercury, in Rheu
matism of Ion* standing, in obstinate diseases of
the skin, in enfeebled condition of the system,
