CHLOROVOR3I.—We ' have in the late
news from Londrin the record or - death
occasioned by' the influence otchloroforei,
in the ease of a girl aged fifteen years. to
whom it was administered previous to the
performance or a most painful operition
for the removal of one of her toe-nails.—
After the inhalation the operation was im
mediately commenced, and no sooner had
the semi-circular incision been made tlutp,
she gave a struggle or a jerk, and appeared
to fall into a dying state. Her mouth
was open and her face blaniihed. Upon
the surgeon opening her eves they remain
ed open. Some brandy was given her and
an attempt was made to bleed her in the
arm and jugular vein, but she was dead,
and only a spoonful of blood was obtained.
From the first inhalation up to her death
not more than three minutes had elapsed.
The quantity administered was about a
drachm ; a much less proportion than has
often in other cases been administered
with perfect safety.
A Fionz tv Tax llovsz.—On Friday
last, the House of Representatives in Wash
ington, was disturbed by a tight between
two members, Messrs. Haralson, of Geor
gia, and Jones, of Tenn. Blows were
struck—a desk thrown down, ac.. after
which the heroes apologized to the House
and to each other, which restored amicable
relations in the House and between them
selves. What they fought about no one
knows ; but it is said that Mr. 11. gave the
first, and received harder and faster blows
from his opponent.
PROGRESSIVE Dmnocnses.—The last
and beat definition of •`progreuive democ
racy" is from the lips of that distinguished
political lexicographer, Col. Benton. He
compares it to an engine driving at the rate
of thirty miles an hour, of a dark night,
without a lantern 'or cow catcher. This
is pungent and precise, and doubtless will
meet with very general acceptance.

FIRE RIOTR-Jrhe.City of 'Baltimore has,
within the past few weeks, been disgraced with
a series of riots between several of the Fire Com
panies!. On Sunday last, foiir companies becarrie
involved In a difficulty, after an alarm of fire on
FelFs Point, where a building was destroyed_
ThP Independence and Watchman ,companies
were opposed by, the United and New Market
companies, at the corner of ?daimon and Cathedral
street. One man named Anthony Hughes was
shot by a pistol, and almost' instantly killed, mid
several• others badly wounded. All sorts of weap.
ons and missiles were used, and for a time the po
lice was baffled in their effort/5 to quell the riot, but
finally Nayarit arrests were made.

"There is one singular and sfalang fact
in this connection, which j eirinot forego
to mention, and which aust forcibly ar

which Gen. Scott reesiyed
. from the de

menting upon that,communication, be says,
it is something remarkable that his first
letter, after the gllantry and success of the
army in the various battles, should be one

he enters the capital of the-enemy, he will
be dismissed from his command. Ile has

' the latter, in kb & c ou r a e
sation, remarked that "it was a Peace
which every one would be glad of, but no
body, would be proud or;" which remark
SittatioaN introduced, as his meth:in e
speech which he made as soon as he dbuld
get the floor after reaching the House.—
We make free to quote from SHERIDAN
what ho did not disdain to borrow from
Sir PHILIP, to exprese,..tylt,zt wp.. suppose
te le' the general 'Opinion, viz. that the
Treaty of Peace--.4upposing it to be ac
complished by the consent bf Mexico to
the alterations which it has undergone—is
a Peace which every one••will be glad of,
but no one will be proud q r.
For, what one of our tendert; will nol be
glad of the news of Ponca There is
music in the very sound—music libw dif
ferent from that of the cries of the wound
ed and the dying; the shrieks of the flying
and the feeble ; the wailing of the widow
and the orphan ! Say that the peace in
cludes some sacrifice oFeherlehed princi
ples, some concession of pre-coecsived o
pinion on the panel-thee° Senators who
voted for it ; yet, well-rounded end valid as
may be the .objectiorM ijt the: eye 7 t:of any
statesman to the conclusion of a Peace un
til every effort tins beettexhausted to make
it what he would Meet approve, how few
of all -our readers are there who will not
rejoice in their inmost hearts in the pews
of the conclusion Ora Treaty. which,though
not in any ether, respect profitable to the
country, yet saveslhrhonorofthe Nation,
whilst it gives us •I.)a.toal
But who is there among all our readers
that will be proud of this peace 1 Nos
lhose certainly who unconstitutionally and
needlessly plunged the country into the
war, which, after involving the Nation in
a debt the suns of .which will, when-all ac
counts are settled np, mount up to far more
than a hundred millions of dollars, and the
sacrifice of twenty or thirty thousand lives
and limbs, without accomplishing any one
of the ostensible objects of the war. Nor
can those certainly, on the other hand, feel
pride in the Treaty who have constantly
condemned and denounced the War as wil
ful and wanton, as begun withoutlaw, char
acterized by continual usurpations of power
by the Executive . during its progress., and
by a departure from the policy and purity
of our Republican system, so wide and so
demoralizing as to haVe already greatly
corrupted and hardened the public heart.
No, No ; neither tht friends of the War,
the friends of Peace who believe that Peace
ought never to have been broken, nor even
the class of those who are too selfish toin
terest themselves in any way in the nation
al welfare, can be proud of such a Peace.
So universal, however, is the !waging for
Peace, that the sound of it has been caught
up with contagious enthusiasm', repeeted
and re-echoed, from mouth to mouth, front
city to city, from ltajlet to hamlet, from
mountain to mountain, and front vale to
vale, until it conies bitek 'upon us from
North, East, West, and South, with one
universal choral swell of joy.
Had the Treaty been more liable to ex
ception than it is, it is, to our mind, a con
clusive argument in its favor, that, when
ratified, it puts an instantaneotie stop to the
unconstitutional action of the f;overnmoot,
beginning with the war made by the Pres
ident without the consent of Congress, and
continued throughout the war, the effect of
which has been, so long as it remained un
checked, to suspend, to that extent, the op
eration of the Censtitution, of the United
States. Our Government has been for
more than two yearsin a situation which
may well he compared to that of a great
train of railroad 'cars running with head
long speed in the'directiou of a fearful
chasm, already in , sight, though at some
distance, and growing every moment per
ceptibly wider and nearer. To escape
this appaling danger, the first , thing to be
done, before you can reverse the motion
of the driving power, is to shut off the
steam, apply the breaks, and bring the ma
chine to a -dead halt: - In the downward' •
career of our Government there is nothing
but a Treaty of Peace (which we trust- is
now secured) that could produce the de
sired effect. The unconstitutional action
of the Government having been brought-to
a stand, it will bit the duty of Congress,
pursuing our figure, to do what they Could
not do whilst war was raging—to reverse
the action of the machine of Government.
and back it out of thedanger. And it will
be the fault of Congress .if the country
should.oier again be platted. in the same
alarming position as to oblige ns to accept
such a treaty as this, as the alternative to
the absorption of the whole of a foreign na
tion, with the certain. final dissolution of
this Government as the consequence.

NO CHANGES IN - THE WEATHER will
materially affect the body if the blood is pure....
Every, individual, even the most diseased, has
within him a germ or root of that original pure
blood of our common mother EVe•, which germ
of pure blood is the supporter of his life, and is
in constant struggle to throw off the heterogen
eous, corrupt humors, which are the causes of
disease. in the invidual. By purging the body of
this diseased blood and its bad humors, you al
low the germ of pure blood to gain ground and
to make blood of a better quality, and 'so on pro
gressively till the whole mass is regenerated; for
the good principle or good pure blood, is always
striving to be predominant over the bad or dis
eased humors. Let all who wish to be of a fine
healthy habit ; who wish to have a sound mind
in a sound 664; who desire to be able to stand
without injury the constitutional changes of this
climate; who desire to have healthy children; use
the Brandreth Pills. which will effectually cleanse
the blood of all bad or corrupt humors, and re
store the state of health enjoyed before the intro
duction of mineral medicines. Remember Bran
dreth Pill, place within the tench of all heafili
and Ipng life.
TRusT TO BRANDRETH'S PILLS, take
them so as to produce a brisk effect, and your
sickness, will be the allele of a day or two, while
those who are too wise to follow this common
sense advice, will be sick for months. Let the
sick enquire of the agents for Brandreth's Pills
whether these things are so or not. let them
enquire among their friends end kik' the - time
question. Verily if EVIDENCE is wanted it
shall be procured. To the sick, let me say use
the BRANDRETH PILLS. Man will be born
'to days-of-blur, eetnpererttoWitat-has hitherto
