Professor Elliotson, of the University of Lon don, in speaking of phthisis' pulmonalia or con sumption, goes on to mention the best preven tives, as invigorating the body as much as pos sible by fresh air, daily exercise out of doors, groat regularity in sleep and in all good habits, committing tiO tori of excess in anything, care fully guarding the body with suitable clothing to every part, and mentioning, of course, some things that are utterly inconsistent, as the drink ing malt liquors and wine, (although he admit the last, in moat cases does harm,) says, "If we can do all this, we may in many cases prevent phthisis, especially if in addition we can make patients use the cold shower bath ; many can not bear a cold shower bath at first ; but they can bear it tepid, and by degrees they can bear it cold. I saw a young gentleman whose bro ther died of phthisis; he expectorated blood, at the same time aa his brother ; and they appear ed equally disposed to phthisis. In one, the disease ran on very fast, and be died. The survivor waa spitting blood continually; and the pupil .of bis eyes was large. I prevailed upon him to begin the use of the shower bath ; and he has done so all the winter. The result is, that he haa lost hie cough, spita no more blood, and is now a strong young man ; no doubt, if he takes care of himself and commit no ex cess of any description, he will go on well. I do not know any means so powerful in "harden ing" the body as the cold shower bath; but it is to be remembered that we cannot "harden" every pereon, and that we may kill many in the attempt. Some ladies, in order to strengthen themselves, will go out of doors in tho most frosty weather; and by that means often injure themselves. We may make the most delicate hot-house plant hardy'by lowering the tempera ture gradually ( but what will harden one will kill, another, and what will not "harden" one person at all would be quite sufficient to harden another, and therefore the greatest care ahould bo employed. Some try to "harden" them selves by having the window open ; and they glory in having anow on their coverlets; some can bear it, but a great number could never bear any thing of the kind.' Still I am sure it is proper treatment "harden" people as much as can be borne." Further on, Professor Elliotson says, very properly, that when the shower bath cannot be borne, sponging, tepid or cold, ia highly useful and productive of great comfort, especially when the hectic is oa. It ia also the most efficient means 'of preventing hectic swears4, and as to the time moat euitable, the patient's feelings of comfort ahould always be consulted. ' ", ; Water- Curt Journal.

Oreof Excitement in the House Mr. Inger toll and Mr. WebsterSecret Sir vice Afo. nry Serious Charges against Mr. Web ster The Oregon Question Mt Clayton's Resolutions. Washirctos, April 7, 184d. A most exciting debate occurred in the House this morning, which occupied the whole day, on ceftain resolution offered by Mr. C. J. Ingersoll, which will ba found below, and which will be prefaced with some remarks of the moat pointed character in reference to Mr. Webster. Mr. Ingersoll said, I have put the few wotda I desired to say into writing, tht there may be no misreport or miatake about them. I would not ask the indulgence of the Hoose for my personal vindication j but the occasion involves the most precious privilege of members of this House, in which the people are represent ed. Ita freedom of speech haa been grossly at tacked, through me, by a Senator, Mr. Daniel Webster. Of him, as a Senator or an individual, I never have spoken here. Of Mr. Daniel Web ater's misconduct as Secretary of State I have of ten spoken, mostly to censure it, in the instance which provoked him this session, with a severity which I acknowledge justifies retort. All I rise to do is, to ask the House to indulge me with a word of explanation of some resolu tions, to which I suppose there can hardly be ob jection. If adopted, I presume they may be answered by next Monday, and then I ahall pray permis sion to speak on the subject. One of them ia designed to bring officially be fore thia House the Journal or Minutes of the Committee of Foreign Affairs, in February, 1813, when the honorable gentleman from Massachu setts, Mr. Adams, waa Chairman of that Com mittee. ' According to good precedents and authorities, I am entitled to read these minutea to the House, without its leave. But aa doubta may be enter tained, I prefer to obviate all objections by ob taining its sanction in form. These minutes will prove that Mr. Secretary Webster made known to members o" that com mittee, by a written communication, the Presi dent's wish for a spectal mission to Great Bri tian, which special mission, I think will suffici ently appear, was to settle the Oregon question by yielding what Mr. Webater haa lately denied our right to claim. The resolutioa for information from the De partment of State will bring forth proof of Mr. Secretary Webster's misdemeanors in office, his fraudulent misapplication and personal use of the public funds, and corrupting party presses with the money appropriated by law for the contin gent expenses of foreign intercourse. When discharged, aa he was, from the department to which he was so great a disgrace, he waa a dilin quent and public defaulter. He did not account for the public money he fraudulently abstracted from the department till more than a year alter he waa expelled from it, and did not account for most of it then by paying back the money he ab stracted, but by vouchers from notoriously base agents of his choice, who receipted for it, to be expended in managing party presses. Papera from the Department of State, some of then) signed by him, will reveal the mystery of what one of his corrupt agenta, in a letter to him marked private, applauds as Mr. Webster's new and admirable mode of settling the Northeastern Boundary question, after the forty years' blun dering, however honest and patriotic, of Washing ton, the Adamses, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jarkson and Van Buren, who did not consider it right to expend public moneys in corrupting the press and the people. It ia sickening, if not aad reality, that a man of fine abilities, aa preposterously aa profanely mis called God-like, should be exposed in his mean and paltry contrivances and associations with no toriously base fellows, in palpably vile misuse of the public money. When I spoke the offensi ve words of the Se cretary, which appeared to have goaded him to the madness generally betraying the guilty, I had no idea of the extent of hia offence. Indeed, I have not nowj for detection ia only begun aince be called me to it, ' One of hia coadjutors writes to the Secretary of State that he presumes the contingent fund is ample and the Secretary'a con trol over it complete. These papers, when made printed documents, will abow also the application of aome of the aame aecret coatingent fund to the release of Mcteod j and although Mr. Webster ia reported to have said in the Senate that there was only one letter on that subject, three in one and the same day will appear. ' Whether, when possessed of the proofs of Mr. Secretary Webster's malversation, corruption and delinquency, his offences will be deemed im peachable misdemeanors in office, conviction for which must remove him from , the Senate, and disqualify him to hold, any office of honor,' trust or profit under the United States, will remain to be considered. . ' ; Should it be necessary to go to that extremity, the aimilitude will be wonderful with the great English lawyer, called by a poet, "the wiaest and meanest of maakind." , ' It will be aeen that the detection, if I am pot miataken, which my former disclosures may lead to, will merge my Individual wrong, and calm the injustice done through me to the representa there i. no appeal but to force, the vital principle Pa.

When Congress sees the proofs I propose to submit,' they will judge all parties, and do what ia right. It ia useless, and would be worse than useless, for me to apply epithets to Mr. Webster. I desire to try him, and be tried myaelf, by proof. The following resolutions were then submit ted. The proviso to the first, is the amend ment, accepted by Mr. Ingersoll, alluded to in the debate which ensued. Resolved, That the President of the United States be requested to cause to be furnished to this House an account of all payments made on President's certificates, from the fund appropri ated by law through the agency of the State Department, for the contingent expenses of foreign intercourse, aince the 4th of March, '41, with copies of all the entries, receipts, let ters, vouchers, memorandums, or other evidence of such payments, to whom paid, for what, and particularly all concerning the Northeastern boundary, dispute with Great Britain; also copiee of whatever communications were mado from the Secretary of State, during the last session of the 27th Congress, particularly Feb ruary, 1843, to Mr. Cushing and Mr. Adams, members of the Committee of the House on Foreign Affairs, of the wish of the President of the United States to institute a special mission to Great Britain ; also copies of all lettera on the books of the Department of State to any officer of the United States, or any pereon in New York, concerning Alexander McLeod: Provided, that no document or matter so reques ted to be furnished by the foregoing rcsjlution, which, in the opinion of the President, would improperly involve tho citizens or subjects of any foreign power. Resolved, That the Chairman of the commit tee on Foreign AfJairs submit to the House the journal or minutes of that Committee, during the last acssion of the 27th Congress. Mr. Dromgoole advocated the adoption of the resolutions. Mr. Bayley, of Virginia, opposed the resolu tions, though he did so, not from any particular feelings of friendship for Mr. Webster. Mr. Ililliard also opposed the resolution, and expressed his regret that a man who had illus trated the American name, as Mr. Webster had done, should haro so tew friends in thia House. He should be the meanest of men if he did not bear his testimony to the rigid and scrupulous propriety in the expenditures of his department Mr. Winthrop rose not to defend Mr. Web ster, thai he would not condescend to do, but in defence of the honor and dignity of the Hottee. A member of this House had made certain char ges against the Senator from Massachusetts. They had, within ten days been denied in man ner and terms not for him to comment upon. Under the influence of the feelings engender ed by the Senator from Massachusetts, the gentleman from Pennsylvania had brought forward these resolutions. 3Ir. Ingersoll here asked whether he (Mr. Winthrop) had not publicly said, seversls days before the speech of the Sen, for from Massa chusetts had been delivered, that the scarify ing process was to be applied to him, (Mr. In. gersoll.) The reply of Mr. Winthrop was indistinctly heard, but he waa understood to deny trio right of any one to catechise him there aa to remarks made out of the House. Mr. Ingersoll made a very significant and contemptuous motion of the body and bands to ward Mr. Winthrop, but said nothing. Mr. Winthrop continued, that be believed Mr. Webster had given his frienda pretty gen erally to understand that the process wss to be applied. Mr. Ingersoll. The question which I asked was, whether the gentleman did not use the words himself Mr. Winthrop. If the gentleman Is so very desirous to know, I believe I have used the expreEsiona I Mr. W, opposed the resolution, and also the amendment. He waa opposed to placing thia matter in the handa of the Secretary of State a friend of the gentleman from Pennsylvania to give to him the opportunity of producing juat auch papers as he may think proper, and sup presslhose which nisy bo necessary to a proper elucidation of the whole subject Mr. Holmes, of South .Carolina, opposed the adoption of the resolutions, on the ground that it would be establishing a precedent destructive of the objects contemplated - by the aecret ser vice fund. II such a fund were necessary that secrecy ahould be maintained. . Mr. Seddoa advocated the adoption of the resolutions on the ground that it waa due to the distinguished Senator from Massachusetts that the examination should be made. He had been charged here by distinguished member of this body with serious offences end though politically opposed to him, his regard to hia American leputation led him to desire the in vestigation. . ...

He mer.tioned an instance during his ad ministration; in which the whole appropriation had been expended, for a single object, which wss unknown to any one, and never communl cated to any except bis successor in office after the expiration of his own term that was ap plied in reference to a commercial treaty with the Sublime Porte, concluded by his successor. Mr. Ingersoll. The object of the resolution is to get a guilty Secretary of State who has abused the power. Mr. Adams said that if the fund had been uned by any Secretary of State for purposes of corruption, it must have been with the sanction of the President of the United States, who alone has the control of the fund, and ia alone res ponsible for its expenditure. So far aa Mf. Webster was concerned, he believed that in vestigation would result to hia honor, rather than his injury. But the President only Was responsible for the expenditure, and as to any secret service money expended during the pe riod referred to in the resolutions, he believed the present President would know no more about it than the House of Representatives. Mr. Yancey contended that Congress had the power over the question; that they made the appropriation, and they had a right to know now it nad been expended. And what waa there in the present stste of things that legis lation should be smothered 1 Certainly not the grosa attack upon the gentleman from Pennsyl vania, at the other end of the capital an at tack which has so sunk its anthor in the estima tion of all honorable men so sunk him in the kennel of degradation that the 'hand of resur rection can never bring him forth.' He pro ceeded at some length, and with great severity to comment upon the course of Mr. Webster, snd was rather severe upon his colleague, too, Mr. Ililliard, who had defended him, Mr. Ililliard replied to M. Yancey. The previous question waa here moved by M. McClernard, which was sustained, and the final vote being taken, resulted yeas 126, nays 23. So the resolutions were adopted! A resolution, offered to-day by Mr. Bayley, calling for all correspondence in reference to the Mcleod case, is still pending, The debate in the House to-day has been the most exciting of the session, and is of a char acter to produce a great sensation throughout the country.

From the Natehet Free-Trader, fthe erlgla of the tt.lrtas In lately passing through the prairie country we were at aome pains in searching for geolog ical facts by which to account for tht formation of these vast level plains and their destitution of timber. The result baa satisfied na that the were once covered with water, either as the bot torn of lakes, running atreams, or ia the same) manner of the evergladea of Florida. The up per stratum ia loose sand or dark loam, such aa" forma the bottom of lakes and rivers or contigu ous marshes l the next la sand, clay, and peb bles of large size, bearing evidence of having been rolled about by the action of the water, and deposited in their present position by the same agency. Large numbers of fossil shells, of fresh water formation, are found in every direc tion and stratum. Besides these, Urge emtio blocks of granite, sometimes mnny feet in cir cumference and many tone in weight, and other transported fragments, are to be met with scat tered over all the prairies ; and, on the south ern shores of the lakes, wherever the superficial aand and gravel have been removed from thn rocky strata, straight parallel furrows appear ploughed in their smooth eurfsce, running in a general southern direction, and always preser ving their parallelism. Tha only rational mode of accounting for the appearance of these transported fragments, an' no formation of a similar nature exist south of the great lakes, appear to us to be through the agency of water and Ice. During the submer gence of these vest fields, when the lakes must have disembogued themselves through the Gulf of Mexico, these huge boulders were caught up by the ice, firmly imbedded in it, and driven off by the northern blasts or stream into a more southern climate, and when the ice melted in spring, they were deposited where they now are found. Thia is to us the only means of ac counting for their appearance, aa well as parat lei furrowa in the rocks on the southern ahoret of the lakes. By what agency thia state of af fairs waa changed, whether by the upheaving ef the prairies from the action of internal fires, or their gradual filling up by the annual deposition of the loose detritus washed down by the stream or deposited from the melting ice, it is useless" to speculate. But as the whole of the alluvial lands of the valley of the Mississippi are of comparatively recent formation it ia not improb able, that the waters of the great lakes washed the bases of the hills on both sides of the Miss issippi, and that the whole intervening space, now so fertile and fruitful, waa then a dark rol ling stream of liquified mud. To us it appear that the whole wcat la the richest field for the geoligistin the world, and none more so tha i those portions of the country lying between 'Li lakes and the Ohio, Tub CosvtsBios.
