We give the following a placee with great pleasure, merely adding that the - excitement caused by the discovery' has been heightened by t'he success it has met with in cases whmero almost every citizen has wvitnessed or experienced its effects in the premonitory sy mptoms of cholera. We may add, that therminence of Drs. Herrick and Bilancy in1 their profession, wrho use it in their practice, and testify to the effects of this remedy. should at once command for this specific its general adoption in cases of cholera, andl its thor ough testing by the profession in all local. EdliN of the Journal: Dear sir: In compliaince 'with the re * ~ quest of my friend, Dr. 3. HI. Bird, I - have made the following brief synopsis of a letter from him, sent to me for pub lication in the North Western Medical - and Surgical Journal, which, together with the few additional remarks wvhieh I have made, you wvill please publish, in order that the members of the medical profession, and our citizens generally, may have the means of testing, and the Cenefits to be derived from what is sup posed to be a newvly discovered remedv p~roholera. Tibe facts stated in the letter referred - to above, arc briefly as follows: A6tit six months since, Dr. Bird and mrIfWere led into a conversation upon t7ps falmosphorie influences in P tdiFw ~temics, from roading an ar utnn chemist in one of our periodicals, n which it wa contended that mnfieni depended upon then tpes th e 04 ysis a i 'i n to0 te0a6 untoothnibsubstance inpheMmo,. Taking this statement:lmI cobiexion with the fact that cholera' I generally preceded by infuenzas; as shown by its history, we were led to the iconsesion that both diseases might be depended. up. on the same influence, modified iniiegree according to the greater. or less quantity of this delorterious agent present it the at mophere at the time. The next step in the investigation was to determine what agent would counter act the influencel.and destroy the delete rious properties of ozone. The accurate chemical knowledge of Dr. Bird enabled him to suggest at-once the well.known substance sulphur as pos sessing the property of acting upon it in such a manner as to neutrblize its influ ence. In searching for facts to support this conclusion, was found that cholera had never prevailed in the vicinty of sulphur springs, orin situations where this sub. stance abounds; hence the conclusion, that sulphur might be, and probably was, the antidote for cholera. In one of our recent medical journals, an article appeared, describing the meth. od of detecting ozone in the atmosphere, thus supplying the means of determining whether or not it was present at the very time when cholera was beginning to make its appearance among us. Dr. Bird's experiments, as well as those made subsequently by himselfand by Drs. Bird, Blaney, and myself from day to day, since that time, shows that oxone is pre. sent in our atmosphere, and that the a. mount is in proportion to the severity of the disease from time to time. A hout a week, since, Dr. Bird deter. mined to try the effects of sulphur upon himself and othera, troubled, as nearly all have been more or less of late, with un easy sensations, slight pains, &c., in the digestive organs. The result was entire. ly satisfactory; so niuch so, that Dr. Bird came immediately to my office and re. quested, me as a friend to test its efficacy in my practice, but to say nothing to oth ers witha regard to the ingredients used tin. til facts should justify its public announce. ment as a discovery. The beneficial etfects resulting from its use in my practice was such a.s to con. vince me at one of its utility in the class of cases described above. During the last fcw days Drs. Bird, Blaney, and myself have continued to use this apparently simply remedy, to the ex. clusion of nearly all others, in all cases with choleric symptoms. The result has been wonderful. All the premonitory symptoms, such as pain, a sense of full. ness, unnatural movements, slight diar. rhon, &c., have uniformly yielded at once to a single dose of three to four grains of sulphur. In cases where either cramps, diarrhea or vomiting have been present, and in fact where all these symptoms have exis. ted in conjunction, the use of sulphur, above named doso every three or four hours, eas had the efTect to ameliorate the patient's condition at once; and when used in a fewv hours, to dissipate entirely choler ic symptoms. So far as its efficacy has been tested in the teorst stages of collapse, most satis fac tory results have been obtained. In two or three cases of the kind the effect of the remedy has been to bring backc ptulse to the wrist, restore wvarmth to the surface, and stop the profuse diarrhoa and vomi. ting. In truth, the results obtained, so far, have been such as to convince all of us, who have administered it, and its elli-cts; t hat if'any remedy deser'res the appellation, this a specific for cholera. It having been determined to make this public statement, it is expected in return that no hasty conclusions will be made ei. ther for or agast what appears to he a Propositioni to accomplish mutch by very simple means. Althongh the results, so far as obtained, in a short time and by a few individuals, seem to jutify our conclusions, it is hoped hat phmysicias will continue to depend on wvhat they consider the most efficient prae. tice, in bad eases of cholera, until they have tested the matter themselves, and formed their own conclusions; and also, that whatever may be the confidence of individuals in this or any other remedy, they will not depend upon their own judg. meat in any case, even of slight symp. toms, wvhenever it is possible to consult their physician. .It is suggested by Dr. Bird, that a com bination of powvdered charcoal, one part to four of sulphur, has seemed to make the remedy more efficient.

On Monday morning, (18th inst.) at 10 o'lock, he breathed his last, after years of suffering the effects of his disease. To our readers and ourselves his is a heavy loss. His pen, ever active, furnished, through our columns instruction and amusement; his last papers, being in continuation of some remarks on'Novel Reading. To the Church and his flock to whom he was ever a careful shep herd, his loss is irreparable. - A crowd of friends, each regretting his loss, followed his remains to that "bourne from which no trav eller returns," and many there are, who, al though not within the pale of his church, who deeply deplore his loss. Rev. N. GRAHAM delivered a brief but very impressive and sol emn address over his remains, which brought tears to the eyes of his auditory. It will %e long ere we meet his like again, for in truth a good and worthy brother has been taken froni us. - "Blessed are they who die in the Lord." Col. Benton's Letter. There are some politicians who cannot pursue a consistent course through life, and who, like the cow which gave the good buck et of milk, must find an occasion to kick it over, and, in the decay of mental and physi cal faculties, realize the worst predictions of their political enemies. Mr. Van Buren took the initiative in realising this fact by springing on his Buffalo platform, and Col. Denton has followed suit in his letter to the people of Missouri, advocating the detestable wilmot proviso, both becoming panders to the tricks of their political opponents, both used 'like the cat to take the chesnuts out of the fire, and both finally discarded by all parties. The Legislature of Missouri directs Col. Beiton, her Senator, to vote against the wilmot provi so, and he, who thought life has advocated and carried out the doctrine to obey instiu-no tions or resign, nowv appeals to the people of his state against the instructions of its represen tatives, and endeavors to divide the people of Missouri on a question pregnant with danger to their rights, institutions and freedom,-to become the allies of old federalists, fanatics and abolitionists in their cursade against the rights and character of the South. One of the objects of Col. Benton is to attack Mr. CALHOUs in his uniform consistent and direct course connected with state rights', and the obvious and clear construction of the Consti tution, as to the power of Congress to inter fore and control those rights by sectional leg islation, lHe will fail in this as ho has failed in every thing lhe has attempted to achieve through life. With the abilities, copious and laborious industry, indefatigable energy and indomitable perservance of Col. Benton through a long political life, it is a remarkable fact that he never possessed the entire confi dence of the party ho acted with; he never was popular with the Democracy of any sec tion of the Union excepting in his owvn state, andl, now finding himself behind the ago and in the decay of influence in Missouri, he is making a tremendous efobrt to make Missouri believe in the very dloctrines which he has assailed for the last thirty years. General JACKsON used to say that Col. Beaten never recovered from the eflects of tho bursting of Stockton's "big.gun" on board the Princeton steamer, near wvhich gugheo was standing at the time of the accidents ifrid, looking at his contradictory and most singular adoption of old federal principles in his letter, we are disposed to arrive at the same conclusion.-... He claims the wilmot proviso as a Democrat. ic measure, the Whigs liugh in their sleeves at giving that political character to a meas ure which they eonly have adopted to assail the rights of the Sou'th. Col. Bonton and theoNorthern states declare that Congress has a right to exclude slavery by Jaw in the ter ritories belonging to the Union. Insisting upon the possession of a right does not estab lish it,--even claiming that right by prece dence, does not make any thing in favor of its justice, the right must be positive, legal, constitutional and admitted; how can that be so wvith the wvilmot proviso, when the South unanimously deny the power of Con. gross to prohibit slavery, by law in the terri toriesl Hero, thou, is unquestionably a doubt ful powver; wvhy should it be used in legisla tioni Congress is required to pass laws es tablishing govenents in t:.,ito....:- Wha. theth ofIa terrinty.'Ifhe ep Es~~ftha o v: 0 l1 Zw of nine l lo theao ofla ryiW fo t oi c6lin of thiiritr. -, t Ole 6f i t~t6 pO llossessjtt rhy in-ied frm th p -of d tor teii beioeleng toh p Union and no one state can b pitdpby law from possessing all its ights.ip the r ritories.: Col.

At the North- it is hinted that the real object is a movement for the next Presiden.cy-but we have no faith in it, Col.

We believe that Col. Benton, finding that hiiiday has gone by in Missouri and that the people of that state willnot follow him into'the ranks of the abolitionists, will resign his seat in the Senate and .make California hiR future resi dence and will attempt to ,be. returned to the Senate from that State after lending his services to organize a government which shall exclude slavery.
