We make room for the following extract from
Mr. Drake's oration, as reported in the Repub
lican: Mr. Webster's career as a legislator pre
sents a portion of his life which future genera
tions will study with profound interest. It ex
tended, with occasional intirmisi-ioiis, through 2
period of thirty-seven years. His field of action
was in the Councils of the Nation, which he en
tered without any previous training in the halls
of State legislation, but, as hi first clfort, to
which wc have referred, evinced, entered fully
armed, and fully equal to the exigencies of his
new position, lie commanded from the first,
the unqualified respect of the body in which he
sal; but when, in lhol), in the great debate in
the Senate on Foot's resolution, lie met opposing
champions of power, on a question lilted to
Round, as it were, with a deep sea-line, the ut
termost depths of his mind, lie astonished the
Senate and the country with a display of lucid
argument, of brilliant imagination, of overpow
ering intellectual grandeur, such as the histori
an endeavors to describe in vain. It lives in the
memory of those who witnessed it, Mid with
them will die; for no where else can its true
character be impressed.
Says one, writing.o this occasion "Seldom,
if ever, has a speaker in this or any other coun
try had more powerful incentives, to exertion; a
subject, the determination of which involved the
most important interests, and even duration, of
the republic; competitors, unequalled in reputa
tion, ability, or position; a name to m;ikc still
more glorious, or lose forever; and an audience,
comprising not only persons of this country
most eminent in intellectual greatness, but rep
resentatives of other nations, where the art of
eloquence had flourished tor ages. All the aul
dier seeks in opportunity was here.
Mr. Webster perceived, and felt equal to,
the destinies of the moment. The very great
ness of the haZi.nl rxhiliraled him. He awaited
the time of onset will) a stern and impatient joy.
He felt like the war horse of the scriptures,
who pawelh in the valley and reioiceth in his
strength : who guelh on to meet the armed men,
who saith mining the trumpets, II.i, h.i! anil
who smcllcth the battle afar oil', the thunder of
the captains and the shouting.
"A confidence in his own resources, spring
ing from no vain estimate ol his own power,
but the legitimate ollVpring of previous severe
mental discipline, sustained and excited him.
He had gauged his opponents, his subject, and
"He never rose on an ordinary occasion to
address an ordinary audience, more self-possessed.
There was no treinulousness in his voice
nor manner; nothing hurried, nothing simulated.
The calmness of superior strength was visible
everywhere; in countenance, voice and bearing.
A deep-seated conviction of the extraordinary
character of the emergency, and of his ability to
control it, seemed to possess him wholly.
"Those who had doubted Mr. Webster's
ability to cope with mid overcome his opponents,
were fully satisfied of their error, before he
had nroceeded far in his speech. Their fears
soon took another direction. lien they heard
Iiis sentences of powerful thought, towering in i
Accumulative grandeur, one above the other, as
if ihi. orator slrovc. Titan-like, to reach the ve-i
rv heavens themselves, thev were giddy wilh
nappiclir.riionth::the wxil-l break down in his j
flight. They larea nol believe inai genius,
learning, and intellectual endowments, however
uncommon, that was simply mortal, could sus
tain itself long in a career seemingly so perilous.
They feared an Icarian fall.
"The exulting rush of feeling wilh which he
. ., , .1 .!
went llirougn mc peroration, uircw u giow over
his counleiHince like inspiration. I'ye, brow, ,
aini.li fcntiire. everv line of the face, seemed i
touched, as with a celestial lire.
"The swell and roll of his voice struck upon
the e:irs of his spell-bound audience, in lep
and melodious cmlenco, an waves upon the shore
of the fur-resounding sea. The Miltonic gran
.lonr nf hia words was the fit emresMiill of his
thoiiL'ht. and raised bis hearers up to his theme.
His voice, exerted toils utmost power, penetra-1
ted cery recess or corner of the Senate- pen-j

he pronounced in deepest tones of pathos, these
Aords of solemn significance. 'When my eyes

Worth Kxowi.no. A young lady while in
me csuntry some years ago, stepped on a rusty
nail, which run through her shoo and into the
foot. The inllamation and pain were of course
very great, and lockjaw apprehended. A
friend of the family, recommended the applica
tion of a beet, taken fresh from the garden and
pounded fine, to the wound. It was soon done,
and the clfect was beneficial. Soon the inflam
mation began to subside ; and by keeping on the
crushed beet, changing it for a fresh one as its
virtue seemed to become impaired, a speedy
cure was efl'ucted. Simple but effectual reme
dies like this should be known to every one.
Philadfi.puia, October 27th.
The City Council held a meeting last evening
nnd passed a resolution recommending that Fri
day, the day of Mr. Webster's Funeral, be ob
served by a suspension of all business.
A similar movement has been made in Balti
mure. The gale of the i)th ult. seems to have been
far more destructive in Florida, than it was eith
er in South Carolina or Georgia.
In Talhdmr.se, almost every store from tha
Capitol to the Court House, is said to have been
more or less injured. "The accounts from the
bounlry," says the Tallahassee Floridian, " arc
awful and appalling. We have not heard from
a solitary plantation whieh has not s tillered to
the amount of thousands. Some planters have
lost their entire crop of cotton. Gin houses arc
down, and of course all the cotton which was
stored in them, not ginned or packed, has been;
scattered and destroyed. All the cotton not yet j SALT Kanawha,
picked, has been blown out and is lost. Thei U. A., sack
fields, on Saturday morning, were ripe unto the u j. jp .
harvest, but at this hour nothing is to be seen in, iujjii.s Dry,

houses blown down, the fences prostrated, and . sUfiAIl Brown - '-

heard from the s:ivroii:idir.g country, much dam

the cotton growing portion of our own ccun'y,
we learn tin.', tho portion of the crop which re
maine 1 unpicked was nearly all destroyed.
Cul. Richardson's gin house was blown down.

We regret to have to record the tott loss of
the Ship Mobile, copt. Tarbox, of and for New
Orleans, from Liverpool, the 27ih ult., with a
crew of twenty-three hands and sixty passen
gers all of whom, with tho exception of nine,
perished. The Mobile sailed from the Mersey
on Tuesday morning, with a fair wind, and
made a rapid rate throughout Hie day. At mid-
night tho captain went below, leaving the scj
conn muie incnurge, wun orders to steer west-south-went:
and to call liim (the capt.) at 2
o'clock, or sooner, if the weather became threat
ening. At midnight the wind was blowing a
fresh breeze from east-north-east, with a heavy
sea, which soon increased to a violent gale. On
the capt. coming on deck at 2 o'clock, he found
the ship on a lee shore, from which it was im
possible to extricate her the second mute hav

ship on a west-north-west course.

special attention to my very large and splendid

Iliflesantl Shot Guns, -
which is decidedly the largest and best selected
stock Unit lias ever been brought to tins market
all of which he will sell at a small advance on
cost, as he has found by experience that "Quick
Sales ami Small Prois" are best. My stock
of Shot Guns and Ritles embraces all the diil'cr
ent kinds and prices, nnd adupted to all kinds
of game. Since our attention has been turned
to this branch of our trade, we have been con
vinced that the supply has never been equal to
the demand, and that the locality of our city be
ing in a game country and our citizens fond ol
hunting, at least I can speak for one, makes this
a point for the establishment of a "Gun Em
porium," on a large scale, in which may be
louiul runs suitable lor all kinds of game, in ev
ery variety of size, style and price. Bcliveving
sucli an assortment, sold at low rales, would

onn be had in any market. All persons in want
of guns will please call and cxamii.e my stock

can please them as to quality und price. I have
also all the necessary accompaniments, such as
