Mr. Wilmot talk* very positively about
What ta going oo in Iba Territory. Of course
tie knows ; bet I spent some weeks there
Ibis summer and found it difficult to obtain
accurate information. That wrongsbave been
committed on both sides is clear; but the
idea of Mr. YV. that his peculiar order have
been uniformly right on all' the issues that
Jiave disturbed the quiet of the Territory, is
absurd. No unbiased mind .will come to such
• conclusion. It is not, however, my pnr
pose to go into a history of Kansas affairs, or
6<v my views at length as to the policy ol
the administration at this lime; but I can as- |
•or* Mr. Wilmot that the only impracticable
politicians I met in the Territory were ol Iris
own school, the leaders of the Topeka re
bellion. They'seemed determined to rule or
ruin. It was no uncommon thing to hear
them say that if tbe convention to meet this
Vnouth, should adopt the Topeka Constitution,
word for word, they who made it, originally,
would reject it at the polls. But I hope and
believe that, through the agency ol the pres
ent able and of the Terri
tory, Mr. Walker, the bitter feuds dividing
the people of that Territory, will bs happily
retried, and Kansas be brought into the Un
ion on principles perfectly consistent with the
organic act. In this effort Governor Walker
will be sustained by the grei t mass ol the
people, whom I lound to be moderate, prac- j
tical and patriotic in their views. For myself, j
1 have believed that the spirit of the Com- j
promise of 1850, as in ih 'J
Kansas, contemplated the decision of the J
question of Slavery, in Iho .Territory, by some j
direct action ol the people, prior to applies- !
lion for admission as a Stale ; otherwise the :
question will come back to Congress in the j
same shape in which it was referred to the ]
people, unaccompanied by any expression of 1
popular will. That expression should, and I
have no doubt, will be had without any offi-1
cial interference as to what it should be ; nnd
when so had, deciding the question of Sla
very as the people wish, 1 shall, (or one, n- |
eist to throw wide open the pottals of tha
Union, and welcome Kansas as a State, Sla
very or no Slavery. But 1 SIIRII not vote to I
admit her on the Topeka Constitution, be- |
cause the movement was not of the people, |
but of a party : was not by authority of law |
but in violation of law and therefore revolu
tionary. Nor urn lat all inclined lo indulge
the rebellious spirit ol those in tbe Territory
who seem determined to set the laws at defi- I
attce. If they will not art save ill llietr own j
way, and Kansas becomes a Slave Slate by I
Iho voice of (hose who not act, the respond- I
bility must rest upon them.
But I have been wandering from my text, I
nnd neglecting the Republican candidate for
Governor. 1 wish lo make one more extract |
from his speech, and then I shall have done j
" With respect to the labor question, it is
alleged by the Democracy tfmt wo have no
sympathy with free white labor ; that all our
tears are exhausted on the black man. Now
I leave the chivalry of the South tn the noble
office of kicking negroes. (!od lias laid
heavy hand on them. The chivalry may
IIBVO all the glory of horse whipping women and
selling their babies. Democracy may 'rample
their rights under font, if they j-l-nsu, hut 1
tell yon that the interests ol all humanity arc
one. God ha* so ordered it, that no man can
do dchbeiate and systemaiic wrong to other
men: to man can be a tyrant or a despot
without staining his own soul, and without
becoming beast or a demon."
How idle, if not unmanly, it is for a man
who uses language ol this rlinrsoter, on a
question entirely beyond the reach of those
to whom it is addressed, to become indignant
end denounce the democratic press a* "de
based," "venal," "corrupt," and "in pay of
II e slave power," because it has designated
lorn as an "Aboliiionisi," a "wild, impracti
cable theorist." What else could lie expect.'
What else could the truth telling press say .'
toes not the whole tenor ol his address jus
lily this conclusion ? la it nol "wild theor
iam" to excite the minds of thp people day
Iliem how a remedy can he applied, and
whilst confessing that ihey hare no right to
interfere for or against such evils in the States,
and acknowledging the binding effects of a
definition of the Constitution, which shows
that they cannot be reached in the Territor
ies ? Is it not Abolitionism to describe the
institution of negro Slavery as so odiotis that
it should not be tolerated in a civilised conn
try—as involving 'h*! measore of tyranny and
oppression, that no man can practice it "vith
mil staining his men soul," without ' becoming
a beast or a demon?" Is it vile demagogueism
thus to inflame the passions and prejudices
of the people of one section of the country
against the insti'.utioris of another to subserve
the ends of party? Mr. W'ilmot must r.ot
conclude that his sickly recognition of the
rights of the States, and his ungracious bow
to the decision of the Supreme Court, will
protect hian in the use of toch offensive lan
guage as the foregoing. The use of such fool
aspersion can in r.o way improve ihe morals
or politics of the eoontry, its institutions or
its customs; can do no good to North or Sooth;
to white or black race. It is not toy habit to
deal harshly with the character or actions of
public men, bn f should do injury to my
feelings were I not to say that much of Mr.
Wilmot's address, whether considered as a
declaration of principles or an a specimen of
logic or literature falls far below what hit
friends had reason to expect. It can rank bat
little above common place ami slavery rant,
aa wanting in method, and useful suggestion
as in the ordinary graces of even par'izan dis
cussion. Is it possible that (he republican
party oannot main tain their principles with
out resorting to such dangerous incendia
risms ? Vncba'iisble crimination of the Sooth
seems to be their only source of par'izau cap
ital. Assuming res pert for :S rcwtetitutioosl
tights of the slave-boldmg Slates, they are
sure to discourse fa such a way as to lead the
fanatical abolitionist to beiieve that in some
way or other, at no distant day, through their
ggeocy. the institution is to be uprooted every

The wo'sl tears concerning lire safely ol
the missing steamer Central America, for Ha
vanna, with over five hundred of the Califor
ma passengers, seem lo be realized by the
intelligence from Charleston, South Carolina,
published under the telegraph head. The

Utility—the worst which lias occurred in (he :
annals of steamship navigation. The passen- j
gcrs on board the Central America amounted I
lo five hundred and twenty-five, which, with !
the officer*, crew, and attendants, make at '
least six hundred souls. The steamer had i
also the mails and specie Irom California, the j
latter being 5t,600,000 ! li is staled that be- I
sides this amount from California, she is sup- j
posed to have taken oil board $600,000 as
freight at Havana, making the amount $2,- |
200,000, and it is estimated that $300,000 is j
in the hands of tier passengers, which would j
swell the amount to Itro and a Ixjlf millions, I
provided that these suppositions and esti
mates are correct, of which there is some j
doubt. Whether this amount is lost, or j
whether it was saved with the few who es-I
caped, is as yet, unknown. The details a>

The Central America kept in sight until the

last that was seen of her. Several vessels

A late number of ihe Westminster Review
contains one of those delicious bits of absur
dity which the British press occasionally
publishes, when the text happens to be Amer
ica. The writer is sanguine, that, at no dis
tant dkyj the Union will fall to pieces. The
[evolution, he says, has already begun, which
is to make North America as divided as
South America, and has not only begun, but
has progressed as far as that of the last cen
tury had, when the people rose against the
stamp act. It would be folly to answer such
a writer seriously. He furnishes his o#n ref
utation by the ignorance he exhibits regard-,
ing the most potent faots connected with the
United Sines. He tells his readers, for ex
ample, (hat it ia a common practice, in the
North, to kidnap white children and sell
them into slavery ; that a slaveholder may
take his slaves into any northern Stale and
settle with them there in defiance of eman
cipation lawa; that the aickrieas at the Na
tional Hotel at Washington was the result of
poison secretly administered at the dictation
of a wide-spread black conspiracy ; that the
Pennsylvania Legislature has voted the Dred
Scott decision null in law; and Anally that
"grave proposals" have been put forth "from
high quarters to make slaves of the Irish and
German emigrants." A reviewer who knows
no more of America than to pen such non
sense, carries with him, at least in the United
States, hit own refutation. — Ledger.

Partial Deafness and Discharges from
the Eur.
Dr. Hartley begs to announce to Ihoae of
bis patient* With whom he has been in com
munication, that he has, in compliance with
their special requests, made arrangements lo
establish his Ear Institution in New York;
and he generously ofler* to attend all per
sona suffering from affections of the Esr,
without charge, until cured—lbiet>y proving
his success unequalled, Bnd protecting the
deaf from being swindled by paying eirtyl
ed Aurists exorbitant fees in advance, and
the inflictions of still more serious arils, by
permuting the applieation of dangerous rem
edies by inexperienced and unskillful hande.
Dr. H. may here state that he has no con
nection whatever with any person advertising
to cure deafness; neither has ba given per
mission for the publication of a certificate,
purporting to emanate from him; and cannot,
therefore, be responsible for any alarming
consequences resulting from rashness and
desperation. The loss of money may not be
material lo some persons, but the depriva
tion of one of the most important of the
senses, ought to be regarded and treated
with more than ordinary solicitude.
Deafness, noise In the head, ar.d all disa

attention to this branch of special praotice,
has enabled bim to reduce his treatment to
such a degree of success as to find the most
confirmed and obstir ate cases yield by a
steady attention to the means prescribed.

And THOATT ate positively curable by in
halation, which conveys the remedies to
the cavities ill the lungs through the air pas
sages, and coming in direct contact with the
disease, neutralizes the tubercular mattdr,
allays the cough, causes a free and easy ex
pectoration, heals the lungs, purifies the blood,
imparls renewed vitality to tho nervous sys
tem, giving that tone and energy soindik
pensable lor the restoration of health. To be
able to state confidently that Consumption is
curable by inhalation, is to me a source of
unalloyed pleasure. It in as much under (he
control of medical treatment as any othhr
formidable disease; ninety out of every hun
dred cases cau be cured in the first stages,
and fifty per cent, in the second; bat In tho
third stage it is impossible to save more than
five per cent., for the luuge are to cut up by
the disease as to bid defiance to medical
skill. Even, however, in the last stages, in
halation affords extraordinary reliel to Ihn
suffering attending ihls tearful ioourge, which
annually destroys ninety five thousand per
son* in the United Slates alone; and a correct
calculation shows that out of the present pop
ulation of the earth, eighty millions are des
tined to (ill the consumptive's grave.
Truly the quiver of deaili has no arrow so
fatal us Consumption. In all ages it hat been
the great enemy of life, for it spares neither
age nor sex, but sweeps off alike the brave,
the beautiful, the graceful, and the gifted.—
By the help of that Supreme Being, from
whom cometh every good ami perfect gift, I
ain enabled to ofler to the efilcted a perma
nent ar.d speedy cure in Consumption. The
first cone of tubercles is from Impure
blood, and the immediate effect, produced
by their deposition in the lungs, is to prevent
the free admission of sir into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through
the entire system. Then surely it is more
rational lo expect gresier good from nr.edij
nines entering the cavities of the lungs than
from those administered through the stom
ach; the pniient will always find the lunge
True and tho breathing easy after inhaling
remedies. Thus, inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally,
and with more power and certainly than rem
edies administered by the atomaoh. To prove
the powettul and direct influence ol (hie
mode of administration, chloroform inhaled
will entirely destroy sensibility in a few min
utes, paralyzing the entira nervous system, so
that a limb mn\ be amputated without the
slightest pain; inhaling the ordinary burning
gas will destroy life in a few hours.
The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the
system when fainting or apparently dead.—
The odor ol many ot the medicines is per
ceptible in the sk-n a lew minutes afier being
j inhaled, and may be immediately detected
lin the blood. A convincing proof of the
j constitutional eflecls ol inhalation, is the fact
! dial sickness is always produced by breath
[ ing foul air. Is not this positive evidence
thai proper remedies, carefully prepared and
! judiciously administered through the lungs,
; should prnduc9lhe most happy results? Dn-
| and*, suffering from diseases of the lunge
and throat, lisve been under my care, and I
have affected many remarkable cures, even
alter the sufferers had been pronounced ill
ihe lasi stages, which fully satisfies me that
consumption is no longer a lalal disease.—•
My treatment of consumption is original, and
lounded on long experience and a thorough
investigation. My perfect acquaintance with
the nature of tubercles, &c., enautes me to
distinguish readily the various forms of dis
ease that simulate consumption, and apply
the proper remedies rarely being mistaken
even in a single case. This familiarity in
connection with certain pathological and mi
croscopic discoveries, enables m* to relieve
the lungs from the effects of contracted chests;
to enlarge the chest, purify Ihe blood, impart
to it renewed vitality, giving energy and tone
to the entire system.
Medicines with full directions sent to any
pan ot the United States and Canada* by
patients communicating (heir symptom* by
letter. But the cure would be more ceitain
if the patient should pay me a visit, which
would give me an opportunity to examine
the tang- and enable me to prescribe with
greater certainty, ami then the cure could be
effected without mv seeing the patient again.
