The Administration
The commencement of a new administra
tion is always more or less embarrassing and
difficult. Government is a great machine,
constantly in operation, under the momen
tum of its organization and the direction of
executive command. It will admit of no
pause; and its direction has to be regulated
without intermission. This devolves upon a
new administration the duty and necessity of
'examining and deciding promptly upon the
affairs of State as they are left by its prede
oessors—to be adopted, repudiated or modi
fied, as judgment and duty may direct, and
the wants and exigencies of government may
require. In direct connection with this is
the installation of the measures and policy
of the administration. Everything connec
ted with the advent of an administration is
scrutinized with a vigilant eye, and public
judgment waits upon every act for approval
or opposition. A rigid accountability to the
exactions of popular feeling is most active at
the early stages of every administration.
Applying these views to the Executive, it
is peculiarly gratifying to those who looked
with a confident reliance upon the eminent
qualifications of Mr. Buchanan for the exal
ted station of Chief Magistrate, and who sup
ported his election under the full influence of
that belief, to find that he has met every de
mand upon his high commission with an abil
ity, firmness, and dignity worthy of all com
mendation. Public opinion has been expres
sed with the indications of a generous appro
Mr. Buchanan's long, intimate, and diver
sified connection - with the national govern
ment has made him familiar with its general
operations and requirements, and enabled
him to enter upon hi;3 great task with most
of its ordinary difficulties mastered. He com
menced his duties with the purposes of a
statesman, regulated by a sound conservative
policy, thoroughly national. Ile has placed
himself upon the constitution, and within its
limits he looks for the boundary of all the
powers of government and all the obligations
of duty. He relies upon the constitution as
the shelter from the dangers of every storm
and the peace-maker in every difficulty. lie
relies upon it as the sacred heritage that
binds patriotism to the altar of country, and
that alone insures strength and long life to
the Union. This comprehends the great out
line of his duty and fidelity to it is his cove
nant to the people.
The country has a guarantee for the fulfil
ment of his great trust not only in the wis
dom and experience of his long public career,
but in every strong and controlling incentive
that can regulate a noble ambition. He looks
to the applause of a grateful country as the
reward of his toils, and to history for the
proud record of a good name.
We believe that public opinion is taking a
temperate and safe direction under the gui
dance of the administration. We believe
that the asperities of party strife are meliora
ting. We believe that government is gain
ing strength by the relaxing hold of great
disturbing errors. We believe that the love
of country is becoming . more active and per
vading. If these blessings be achieved, the
great objects of good government will be ac
complished, and the wisdom of popular sov
ereignty be vindicated.—Washington, Union.
persons who have not at some time in their
lives experienced a realizing sense of a con
nection between the spiritual and material
world, or encountered circumstances which
subsequent events led them to suppose were
warnings and forebodings. One of the most
wonderful of these premonitions is recorded
by the Troy Witig, in relation to the daugh
ter of the late WILLIAM L. MARCY, who pas
sed the 4th of July in the family of an ac
quaintance in that city. She formed ono of
a circle of friends, including ladies and gen
tlemen, at the house during the day. While
all the others were in cheerful spirits, it was
observed in the forenoon that Miss M. ap
peared to be depressed in mind. So obvious
was this to her companions, that it was made
the 'subject of remark s when she said her
mind was unaccountably impressed with the
fear that a signal calamity had overtaken
some member of her family. Early in the
afternoon, the news of the death of Governor
MARCY reached this city, and it was known
to gentlemen composing the party in which
Miss m, was, some time before it was com
municated to her. While the gentlemen were
in a room by themselves, discussing the man
ner of conveying to the daughter the sad in
telligence, and before she could by any means
have received the least intimation of the event,
she suddenly threw her handkerchief over
her face, and evidently in deep grief retired
alone up stairs.
From the Pennsylvanian of July 16
Battle of Stony Point.
Seventy-eight years ago last night, one of
the boldest and most effectual military enter
prises of the American Revolutionary
gle successfully accomplished—the cap
of the British fortress at Stony Point,
on the west bank of the Hudson river. The
New York .2\rews says the garrison of the place
consisted of more than 600 regulars, and it
Was heavily armed and completely provision
ed and stored. Its defensive preparations
were formidable. The attack was underta
ken by General ANTHONY WAYNE, and car
ried out with the characteristic determination,
impetuosity and good fortune of that noble
old patriotic chief. With a well-equipped
body of Continental troops, "Mad ANTHONY"
arrived at midnight within sight of the British
works, and, at the distance of a Mile from
the Point, divided his men into two columns,
putting himself at the head of one. The
charge was ordered drawn from every mus
ket, and with fixed bayonets and resolute
step, the American troops advanced rapidly
towards the frowning walls. A deep ditch
was crossed with a dash and a shot, and, al
though the heavy cannon of the fortress
opened upon the advance with a terrible and
unrelenting fire, mowing down with grape
shot the foremost ranks of the assailants, yet
their columns wavered not for an instant.—
The Revolutionary bayonets swept down the
gunners at their guns; the entrances into the
fort were forced, the walls scaled, the enemy
scattered, and the two American detachments
met in the center of the enemy's works, vic
torious without firing a gun. The echoes of
the rocky hills along the Hudson reverbera
ted back the three mighty cheers of triumph
with which the victors welcomed the raising
of the American flag upon the staff whence
the bloody cross of England had just descen
ded. Every man of the British garrison was
killed or captured. Such is the historical
outline of the taking of Stony Point ; but
popular tradition in the neighborhood sup
plies, to this day, many most interesting ad
denda to the antiquarian. It is related, for
instance, that a secret passage to the works
had been discovered by a negro girl, who had
been accustomed to pick strawberries on the
green slope of the fortifications ; and that she
led the American General to this entrance,
into which, at the head of a chosen band, he
rushed far in advance of his own troops, and
cleaving down with his own good sword the
foremost of the startled defenders. Doubt
less the American forces had ample informa
tion as to the state of the works and the
strength of the garrison, from the liberty
loving population of the surrounding country,
who looked upon the red-coated enemy with
apprehension and sullen hatred. No section
of the Colony of New York was more enthu
siastically and unanimously patriotic than
the counties lying west of the Hudson River.
The preponderating Dutch element had never
loved the British rule, and General Gaon cer
tainly had occasion for the remark which
tradition attributes to him—" Wherever there
is a Dutchman in these Colonies, there is a
rebel I"
From 1779 to 1857, the anniversary of the
storming of Stony Point, has passed by with
out a celebration ; but the patriotic descen
dants of the men who shouted for joy at wit
nessing the British standard descend from
the walls of the old. fort., on that July night,
seventy-eight years ago, have determined now
to commemorate it in a fitting manner. To
day, the 10th of July, the corner stone of a
mmument, designed to perpetuate the recol
lections of the capture, will be laid with ap
propriate ceremonies. Large numbers of
volunteer militia, civic societies, and multi
tudes of the good. people of the River coun
ties will be present. An oration will be de
livered by Judge AMAzA J. PARKER; and al
together we cannot doubt the occasion will
be made all that it ought to be. These pa
triotic reminiscences it is fitting we should
cherish and revive. In this day of the great
ness and power of the Republic, the valor
and the sacrifices of the bravo men who
achieved our liberties and laid the founda
tion of our national existence, should be re
membered with every circumstance of pomp
and reverence.
A New Motive Power
The Baltimore Patriot is enthusiastic over
a new motive power, alleged to have been dis
covered and brought into practical operation
by Prof. J. C. P. Salomon, of that city. It
is called the "Srdphitric Oil Carbonic Acid
Engine." The Professor has been at work
on this discovery for the last ten years, du
ring which time he has been aided by some
of the most opulent and intelligent citizens
of Baltimore. The machine is a common
rectilineal steam engine, differing in no ma
terial feature from those in general use, only
a new motor is used, which is thus described
by the Patriot:
The patent novelty consists in the motive
power and its application, which wholly su
percedes steam. This motor is produced by
a compound of desuiphated bi. sulphuret of
carbon, coal tar and volatile or fixed oil,
which, under certain influences of heat, be
comes powerfully expansive,- and thus gives
momentum. Though only a four horse en
gine, it was performing the estimated duty of
ten horses, and has been so doing since put
in operation, nearly a fortnight ago.
The great virtue and triumph of this won
derful invention, which in all probability will
cause a revolution in mechanics, are its econ
omy, safety and power, combining also, cheap
ness and convenience.
The fluid or gas, constituting the motive
power, is used over and over again, with
scarcely any diminution or waste being thrown,
after performing its work, from the heater to
the condenser, and from the condenser to the
heater again, with thorough renovation. The
heater, where the gas or fluid is introduced,
is submerged in a cistern of the heated oil,
kept hot by a gentle fire. In this condition
the gas expands, gaining its power and pres
sing through pipes and valves, acts upon the
piston, giving motion to the engine. The ap
pliances are simple, easy of comprehension,
free from complication, and not subject to ac
cident or disarrangement. Thus a steady,
active force is at all times kept up.
The cost of this fluid is estimated at ten
cents per gallon, and it is demonstrated that
eighteen gallons, by careful attention, will
run an engine of the capacity here noticed,
for one year. Its components are such as
not to freeze, even at ninety.degrees below
zero. The amount of fuel is, in a proportion
of fifteen pounds of coal to one hundred
pounds, compared with a steam engine of the
same dimensions, whilst more than double
the force can be brought into requisition.
A trial with steam under an equal appli
cation of heat is said to have clearly demon
strated a great superiority of this now motor
in its application over steam: With a degree
of heat which produced eighty revolutions
per minute with the new motor, the steam en
gine moved but slightly and stopped. Be
sides, it is claimed that explosion is impossi
ble, and thus a great point is gained in obvi
ating danger. A number of scientific gen
tlemen and practical machinists, who have
witnessed the operations of this engine, ex
press themselves confident of its success.—
Prof. Salomon is a native of Prussia, but has
been a citizen of the United States for twen
ty-seven years.
Visits of Comets.
In ancient times, the visits of comets were
supposed to portend pestilence and war; and
in the reign of Justinian,
when two immense
"blazing stars" appeared the direful expecta
tions were abundantly fulfilled—not, howev
er, that those calamities, which desolated
large portions of the Eastern Roman Empire,
had any connection with the comets. The
first alarmed mankind in the month of Sep
tember, A. D. 531, and was seen for twenty
clays in the western quarter of the heavens,
shooting its rays into the north. The second
appeared A. D. 539, and increased to so large
a size, that the head was in the east and the
tail reached the west. It was visible for for
ty days, the sun at the time exhibiting un
usual paleness. Varro records a tradition,
that in time of Oxyges, the father of Grecian
antiquity, the planet Venus changed her color,
size, figure, and course; a prodigy without
example, either in past or succeeding ages.—
This refers to 1767 years before Christ. Tre
mendous comets appeared in the west, two
generations prior to the reign of Cyrus ; but
one of the most splendid comets was seen 44
years before the birth of Christ. After the
death of the Julius Caesar, a "long-haired
star" was conspicuous to Rome and to the na
tions, during the games that were exhibited
by young Octavian, in honor of Venus and
of his Uncle Julius Caesar; and the vulgar
believed that it conveyed the divine soul of
the latter to heaven. The superstition was
universally current among the ancients that
a comet "from its horrid hair shakes pesti
lence and war." But modern philosophy and
research have successfully dispelled such vain
and idle apprehensions in all civilized na
tions. At the birth of the great Mithridates,
King of Pontus, two large comets appeared,
whose splendor is fabulously said to have
equalled that of the sun. They were seen
for twenty-two days together, and occupied
forty-five degrees, or the fourth part of the
visible heavens. Seneca, the Roman phil
osopher, who lived in the first century of the
Christian era, wrote: "The time will come
when the nature of comets and their magni
tude will be demonstrated, and the course
they take, so different from those of the
planets ; and posterity will wonder that the
preceding ages should be ignorant of mat
ters so plain and easy to be known." Arago
thought that not less than seven thousand
comets revolved in our system. Comets some
times pass unobserved by the inhabitants of
the earth, in consequence of the part of the
heavens in which they move, being under
daylight. During a total eclipse of the sun,
sixty years before Christ, a large comet, not
previously seen, became visible near the body
of the obscured luminary. Halley's comet,
A. D. 1456, covered a sixth part of the visi
ble heavens, and was likened to a Turkish
scymitar. That observed by Newton, A. D.
1680, had. a tail 123,000,000 of miles in length.
A comet, A. D. 1744, had six tails, spread
out like a fan across a large space of the sky.
York Express says, in the Everglades of
Florida, the mosquitos—those pests of south
ern life—are frightfully abundant. At Fort
Dallas they are so plentiful that both officers
and men, save the guard on duty, pass their
whole time under bars. The sentry is provi
ded with a mosquito veil, or rather bag,
thrown over their head, and kept out from
the face by a hoop, and woolen clothes, boots,
and gauntlet gloves protect the limbs and
and body from their murderous attacks.—
Persons who have not experienced this beau
ty of southern life, will scarcely believe that
horses and cattle are actually bled to death
in a single night, and woe be to the soldier
or seaman who, by means of liquor, loses
command of himself, and falls to the ground
helpless and unprotected; these insatiable
vampires will fasten their fangs upon him,
and draw from his berotted body what fe
vered blood remains.

Pit tsburg,
Dr. llarchnan treats Consumption, Bronchitis, Asthma,
Larryngittis and all diseases of the throat and lungs, by
Medical Inhalation, lately used in the Bromton Timpani,
London. The great point in the treatment of all human
maladies, is to get at the disease in the direct manner.—
l medicines are estimated by their action upon the organ
requiring relief. This is the important fact upon which
Inhalation is based. If tho stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. if the lungs are dis
eased, breathe or inhale medicated vapors directly into
the lungs. Medicines are antidotes to disease and should
be applied to the very scat of disease. Inhalation is the
application of this principle to the treatment of the lungs,
for it gives us direct access to those intricate air cells,
tubes which lie out of reach of every other means of ad
ministering medicines. The reason that Consumption,
and other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore resisted
all treatment has been because they have never been ap
proached in a direct manner by medicine. They were in
tended to act upon the lungs, and yet were applied to the
stomach. Their actiou was intended to be local, and yet,
they \were so administered that they should only act con
stitutionally, expending their immediate and principal ac
tion upon the unoffending stomach, whilst the foul ulcers
within the lungs were unmolested. Inhalation brings
the medicine , in direct contact with the disease, without
the disadvantage of any violent action. Its application is
so simple,
that it can be employed by the youngest infant
nr feeblest invalid. It does not derange the stomach, or in
terfere in the least degree with the strength, comfort, or
business of the patient.
Other Diseases Treated.—ln relation to the following dis
eases, either when complicated with lung affections or ex
isting alone, I also invite consultation, I usually find them
promptly curable.
Prolapsus and all other forms of Female Complaints, Ir
regularities and Weakness.
Palpitation and all other forms of Heart Disease, Liver
Complaints, Dyspepsia, and all other diseases of stomach
and bowels, &c.
All diseases of the eye and ear. Neuralgia, Epilepsy;
and all forms of nervous disease.
