No man living was better fitted than the

,life. of
Pitriok Hei'l - : The mantle of Henry's
genius, may have descended on his biogra
pher--or, at least, so much of the kindred
power of eloquence us to render the younger
,enamoured of the glory of the elder. No
eon 'Could have illustrated and sought out a
midst' the discordant elements of faction and
Misrepresentations, the noble traits .of a
father's character more faithfully, add more
in . the spirit of filial love than WIRT has
done in the ease of Henry. It is, indeed, a
wonder that a splendid edition of this work
has never before been presented to the
• Aiwtelettri - pltblic, as ail the former editions
have made but an indifferent appearance.
But, Very nii t ih to the credit of the enter
r*or, publishers, Messrs. WElrath and
;,, +gs, the foUrth revised edition of Henry's
Life, is worthy to transmit the fame 'of Vir
ginie's noble son,dowa to another generation.

- Palnt" ikliettry,was born, in the year 1736,
in Hanover county, Virginia—of parents be
keel* to the agricultural, or middling in
terest, rather than to the class of the aristo
cratic, semi-noblemen of that ancient colony.
N. was, in early youth a poor scholar in 1
hooki,butalways gave evidence that he was a
deep student in the knowledge of human na-
turn. He married quite young, and had the
nortune to fail twice in mercantile business—
eid Was at last driven to the study of the
laW,,to avoid extreme penury. His first ap
pearance in court as an advocate, gained him
great honor, although it was against the in
terests of the clergy. Shortly after, elected
two the house of Burgesses, he gave, in the
words of Jefferson, the first impulse to the
bald orrevolution. With his own hand he
drew up the resolutions that expressed the
ttectrines which, ton years after, reddened
4:the - field of Lexington, and Bunker's height.

in .774 Henry was a member of that me
mitrable.body, the first Congress in Phila
dellphia. The following extract will show
the nature of his sehriccs on that occasion.
'"The Most eminent men of the' various
-,colonies were now, for the first time, brought
together. They were known to each ether
. ' by fame; but they were personally strangers.
Thenieeting was awfully solemn.. The ob
ieet Which had called them together was of
incalculable magnitude. The liberties of,
fib less than three millions of people, with
that °fall - their posterity, were staked on the
wrisdom and energy of their councils. No
Wonder, then, at the long 'and deep silence
which, issaiS to have. followed their organ

bent around upon each other, and

glowing, at length, with all the.majesty and
expectation of the occasion, his speech
Seemed more than that of mortal ynan.--
Eveft those whi) had heard him in all his
gloryi:in the liaise of Burgesses of Virginia
were astonished at the manner in• which" his
talents seemed to swell and expand them
selves, to fill the vaster theatre in which'
he was now pl4ced. 'There was no rant—
no 'rhapsody—no labor of the understanding
straining of the
. voiceno confusion of
the utterance. His countenance was erect
—his eye, steady—his action, .noble—his
enunciation, clear and firm—his mind, pois
ed on its centre---his views of his subject,
comprehensive and great, and his imagina
.:tion,oorrnscating with a magnificence and
a, variety which struck even that assembly
with amazement awl awe. He sat down
amidst Murmurs of astonishment and ap
plause, and as he had been before proclaim
ed the greatest orator of Virginia, ie was
now, on every Inuirl, adniitted to be the first
orator of America."
On the occasion of the battle of Lexing
ton, he said in the Virginia hotise of Bur-
"There is no retreat,.but in submission
and slavery ! Our chains are formed. Their
clanking may be heaud on the plains of Bos
ton. The war is inevitable—and let it
come ! I I repeat it, sir. let it conic ! !
"It isyain, sir, to extenuate the matter.
Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace; but there
is no peace. The War is actually begun !
The next gale that sweeps fruM tlie north
wilt bring to our ears the claSh of resound
ing* arms! Off brethren, are already in the
field. Why stand we here:dine'!" What is
it that gentlemen wish?. What would they
have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as
to be purchased at the price of chains and
slavery? Forbid it, Almighty Goa! I know
not what course others may take; but as for
me, cried he, with both his arms extended
aloft"; his 'brow knit, every feature marked
with the resolute purpose of his soul, and
his voice swelled to its boldest note of excla
ination,"give me liberty, or give me death !"
"He took his seat. No murmur of, ap
plause was heard. The effect was too deep.
After the trance of a moment, several mem
bers started from their seats. The cry, 'to
arms,' seemed to quiver on every lip, and
gleam from every eye ! Richard -H. Leo
arose, and supported Mr. Henry, with his
usual spirit and elegance. But his melody
was lost amid the agitations of that ocean
which the master spirit oldie storm had
lifted - uplarhigh. That supernatural voice
still sounded in their ears, and shivered along
their' arteries. They heard, in every pause,
the cry of liberty or death. They became
impatient - of atidea,-_-41u/iz--iis)ulii--A•ere on
fire for action.
Speaking of commercial restrictions on a
Certain occasion=
6 1V11 , ,' said he, isluaild we fetter com
merce? If a man is in chains, he droops
and bows to the earth, for his spirits arc bro
ken, (looking sorrowfully at his-feet,) but
let him twist the fetters from his legs, and - 1
he will Stand erect, (straightening himself,
and assuming a look of proud defiance.)--
Fetter not commerce, sir; let her be as free
as air; she will range the whole creation,
and return on the wings of the four winds of
heaven, to bless the land with plenty."
Mr. Henry made a tremendous; although
unavailing effort in the Virginia convention,
against the acceptance of the Federal Con
stitution.• We make a single extract
"Toward the close of the session, an inci
dent occurred of a character so extraordina
ry as to deserve particular notice. The
question of adoption or rejection was now
approaching. The decision was still "icer,
tain, and every mind, - and every heart, was
filled with anxiety. Mr. Henry partook
Most deeply of this feeling; and while -en--
gaged, as - it were, in his last effort r availed
- hiniselrathe strong serian.--tiniff-which-he
knew to pervade the house, and made an
appeal to it, which, in point of sublimity, has
never-VW Stirpaseed-inany age _or country.
Of the world. Afte dewribing, in accents
Which spoke to the soul, and to which every
other bosom deeply responded, the awful
immensity orate question to the present and
future generatiette,and the throbbing appre
hensions with which he looked to the issue,
he passed from the house, and from the
earth, and looking, as he said, 'beyond that
horizon which binds mortal eyes,' he point
ed, with a countenance and action that made
the blood runhack upon the aching heart, to
those celestial beings who were hovering
over the scene, and waiting with anxiety for
a decision which involyed the happiness or
misery of more than gaff the human race.
To those beings, with the same thrillinglook
and action, he had just addressed an invoca
tion that made every nerve shudder with
supernatural horror—when, lo ! a storm at
that instant arose, which shook the' whole
building; and the spirits whom he had called
seemed to have Come at his bidding. Nor
did his eloquence, or-the storm, immediately
cease, but availing *himself of the incident,
with a master's art, he seemed to mix in the
fight of his . ethereal auxiliaries, and 'rising.
on the wings of the tempest, to seize upon
the artillery of Heaven; and direct its fierc
est thunders against the heads of his adver
sariei."The Scene became insupportable,
and the house rose without the .formalitl'bf
adjournment, the members• rushing frOm
their seats witliprecipitatienaud confusion."

mein of the effect of Potter's Catholicun in the re
storation of m,y health. My constitution' hid
been in a declining state for more than eighteen
months. I was .nuch troubled with a short dry
cough, alight difficulty of breathing, which was
much increased by bodily exercise. At night,
groat oppression at the chest was experienced,
with excessive colliquative sweats, soreness and
pain in the sides and breast, with extreine languor
and loss of appetite. In this situation, I travelled
to the New England states by sea, but obtained
no permanent relief. Same time after my return
by way of experiment, I was induced to use Pot
ter's Catholicon, and after' using two bottles, my
health was perfectly restored.
PHILADELPHIA, March 28th, 1 829.
Dear Sir—After many but ineffectual trials to
relieve myself-from a moat severe ancLdiatresaing_
attack of dyspepsia, r hare been completely cured
by the use of; to Me, your invaluable Catholicon,
and I think it my duty thus publicly to state my
case, and in order that others may profit thereby.
The first symptoms of the disease were manifest
ed in the spring 0f1827. Warned at the approach
of this destroyer ofall ease, I had recourse to phy
sician after physician, and remedy after remedy,
but received little or no relief. I was recommend.
ed to retire into the country, whore I so far re
cruited, that I began to think the enemy was dia.
lodged. I returned to the city, where in a short
time all my old symptoms returned with doubts
violence. My stomach became so debilitated with
drugs that I relinquished the regular system and
entered on a course of Swaim's Panacea. It did
me no good, and I went back to my doctor, who
crammed me with pulverized oyster shells, etc. etc.
My teeth became loose, and some actually fell out;
there was a constant pain in my joints, particul
ly-in.damp weather,pa . s in in • ri , ht side and
shoulder, etc. I now animated to snot ievourse
of medical treatment, until The fall of 1829, when
my physicians stated the disease to be a sehirrue
of age liver. Then it was that I determined to try
your Catholicon, a few doses of which improved
my appetite, and gave me a feeling of ease.. and,
comfort, I cannot readily describe. Iri twelve days
after usiu Out one 'bottle, I found'sn_y.self we
the few teeth I had left were 'firmly clasped by the
gums and my 'appetite and tligesi..lo. i lerf.
stored. I now enjoy. as good health as I ever did.
and I must say it is to your valuable Catholicon
that I attribute this happy result.
