Dec. 0, 1817,
SNARE.-A remarkable and much lamented
deutli.took'plaee in New York on Friday
night. Dr. Arnold F. Wainwright, one
ol our most respect physicians, died about
midnight. from the effects of a bite on one
of his fingers, received from a rattlesnake
in 'the early part of the day. The reptile
had on the same morning been received by
the Doctor from a country friend; he let it
out upon the door, and in attemptimt to re
turn it to the box, received a bite—the blood
spiittine from the wound several feet.—
Cuuterisin was immediately resorted to,
but in vain. The deadly venom of the
serpent ran through his system with unal
layable virulence, and death soon ensued,
in spite of the best services of his best pro
fessional brethren. The melancholy event
has produced an intense sensation.
A glance at the report of the Postmaster
General gives the following interesting re
sults under the reform postage bill :

In reply to the address of the Mayor the
General briefly responded thus :
"Mr. MAYOR : The welcome which I
meet this day from the people of New Or
leans, announced by you, their honored
representative, overwhelms me with feel
ings which no words can express.
"Von have been pleased to qualify with
terms of the highest approbation the servi
ces of the army which I have had the hon
or to command in Mexico. Could those
brave officers and soldiers whose gallantry
achieved the success to which you refer be
present on this occasion, and witness the
grand outpouring of gratitude which their
devotion elicited, the measure of my satis
faction would be complete. For them and
for myself I thank from my heart the peo
ple of New Orleans, and accept Mr. May
or, the offer of their hospitality."
This simple but interesting formality
over, Gen. TAY Lon proceeded to the Cathe
dral, where Bishop BLANC addressed him
briefly and appropriately, during Which he;
alluded to the humanity as well as the glo
ry with which the old hero conducted the
war, and concluded by expressing a hope
of a speedy and honorable peace, to which
Gen. Taylor feelingly replied, and warmly
responded to the earnest aspirations of the
bishop that a peace might be speedily se
cured. When Gen. Taylor appeared a-1
gain before the people, he was mounted on;
his famous charger "Old Whitey." The'
excitement at this stage of the proceedings
was intense, and the cheers almost amount-'
ed phrenzied enthusiasm.
Arrived at the St. Charles, Gen. Tay
lor stood on the colon - ride and the whole
procession passed before him. The order
of rank and file was forgotten, and citi
zens and soldiers were mingled in the
crowd, who cheered hint as they passed.—
It would require the pencil of a Vandyke
to portray the changing aspect of the old
man's face, as with cap in hand he witness
ed this closing scene in the great drama
of the day.
The vest extent of the St. Charles sud
denly became one blaze of light about 6 o'-
clock in the evening, and the streets lead
ing to it were densely crowded by persons
of every condition in society. Between
the pillars of the colonade in front orthe
building were suspended large variegated
lanterns under chaplets of live oak. In
front of the ladies' parlor was a large trans
parency of the General, in the old brown
coat, with the motto, "A little more grape,
Capt. Ilra!tg !" In front of the gentlemen's
parlor was another transparency of the
General, with the words, "•I have no rein
forcements to give yon, hut Major Bliss
and I will support you!" In various parts
of the building there were other appropri
ate transparencies and devices, adding
much to the general effect. The Orleans
Theatre, and some of the buildings adjoin- 1
ing and opposite were illuminated.
About 7 o'clock the Mayor conducted
General Taylor into the dining room foi
-1 lowed by his staff, Governor Johnson and
suite, officers of the unity, and other invit
ed guests.
After the cloth was removed regular
toasts were given. The third in order
was "Major General Zachary Taylor," to
which the old soldier responded in an ap
propriate and characteristic speech, and
concluded by otkring the following;
"Tut: Crrizt:Ns OF New OttLgAss
Unsurpassed Inc intelligence, patriotism,
and enterprise of every kind."
From the dinner table the General and
suite visited the Theatres, where it is need
less to say he was received with the most
unequivocal evidences of respect and ad
miration. Altogether, according to the
Mercury. "the weather, the people, the oe
easion, the enthusiasm, and its object, all
considered, it was a glorious day in New

From the New York Tribune
When a limn holding the lofty station of
President of the U. States ventures to reit
erate, for obvious and disreputable ends,
the long since exposed—statement, we will
say—that the last Congress declared
the present "War to exist by the act of
Mexico," with only TWO negative votes it:
the Senate and FoI'ItTEEN In the House,
by what terms can we characterise his de
liberate assertion which shall be consistent
with the respect due the office he unfortu
nately holds ! Let John Jones or Dick
:Smith step into a court of justice, however
reluctantiv, and there make such a state
ment, and the law would send him to an
edifice more substantial and less elegant
than that occupied by James K. Polk,—
Such is the difference between making such
assertions front high places and from low.
We, too, are restrained by respect to sta
tion front characterizing the President's
statement as it deserves, but we will once
more'take the trouble, with the Journals
of Congress open befine us, to expose its
essential and flagrant dishonesty.

there were eighteen votes directly against
the lying preamble, being the South Care
lion Senators and all the Whip present
but three; although only two refused to
vote for the bill at its final paisage. They
did their best to strike out the preamble as
false ;—but they still believed themselves
about to rotator supporting our little army
involved in perils, notwithstanding the
preamble. .
Such are the recorded, never disputed
facts. Yet Mr. Polk, knowing that, many
persons would read his Massage who were
ignorant of these facts and would never
see them fairly presented, has chosen' to
make his statement that this lying proem
ble'.was passed with great unanimity by
Congress, tliein being but two negative
voles in the Senate and but fourteen in the
House of Representatives." Surely no
petty-larceny lawyer, defending a pick

make only a fair trial of them, and they will con
cede the medicine is the best evacuant of the bow
l& hithdrio discovered. The ingredients are all
prepared expressly or the manufacture of the
Brandreth Pills, and it is impoeeible to obtain a
purgative of the same properties except from Dr.
B. Brandreth. Let physicians and the world at
large bear in mind that the Brandreth Pills may
he taken, if necessary, for any length of time dai

of beneficial results.
This universal medicine mildly but surely
cleanses the whole extent of the alimentary canal.
It then gives increased power to the circulation of
the blood, by which it deposits any impurities it
inlay contain in tip, bowels, which organ expels
Them from ttto body.
This action may continue for days, weeks. or
months, as the mildness or urgency of the disco:,

iraculted and re-made from the food consumed.
How important is it that persolet of feeble frame,
of impure constitutionv, ehoubl• without delay,
commence with this pure null wholeioine medicine.
No thou ought to be lost by todie r ; I,ozew_zcv or

The testimony ; in liteor of the Brandreth Pills,
and tho numbers who are daily raised frond it led
ormlaely by their use, render it imperative that all

trial. To DE TUNE EM
That Brandretlia Pills have stood a fourteen

That they are a vegetable and innocent medi

That they purify the blood, and stay the thither
