In pronouncing our charge false, that Loco- '
fucoa attempted to coerce poor men to vote
against Taylor at the last election, the Globe,
two weeks ago, gave us the following challenge :
" Neighbor ) we have pronounced your asser
tions falaerand must continue to do so 'until you
furnish the evidence upon which Vbti founded
the charges. If you do not desi:re "to drag
the names of private citisena beforethe public,"
we are willing you should have an opportunity
to oiler your evidence in presence of five or
more, men of honor, and they to decide Our ver
acity. What say you ?,,
We accepted the r:nallenge thus thrown out,
named five honorable men, and suggested h titrie

appointed the committee met, together with

the terms of Isis challenge. This we refused
to do, and Mr. Lewis withdrew, without hear
' ing our evidence. We then exhibited to the
committee our proof, and they unanimously
declared, that the charges which we made were
fully warranted by the farts. But as Mr.
Lewis had backed out from his challenge, we
did not ask the committee to make any report
on the case.
From the whole conduct of our neighbor in
this afuir , it was evident to our mind that
he intended to continue charging us with false

Shivery in the Territories,
We see no good or sufficient reason says the
Lancaster Tribune, why this questionsheuld nut
be settled at the present session. It has id
ready ceased to be a practical question. Slave
ry can never be introduced into either Califor
nia or New Mexico. The people of both these
territories are universally and uncompi omising
ly opposed to ity and give expression to their
hostility through the medium of the press, at
their public meetings and and in vations other
ways. The people of California go so far
as to say that, rather than tolerate Slavery
alndngst them, they will declare their Indepen
dence of the United States. The people of New
Mexico, emigrants and others, hold the same
sentiments. We verily believe that the intro
duction, under laws of Congress, of slaves into
California and New Mexico will cost us one, if
not both of these territories.
Nine-tenths, or a still greater portion of the
people of the Slave holding States regard Slave
ry as an evil Why, then, seek to extend and
perpetuate that evil 1 Why inflict upon New
States what is regarded as an evil wherever it
now exists 1 What right, constitutional, social
or moral, have we to extend the area of Slave
ry 1 It strikes us as most unreasonable that
the South, while condemning as an evil the ser
vitude established in their midst, should yet in
sist upon its extension elsewhere. We abide
by the Constitution of the United States—we
seek not to disturb its compromises. With the
internal affairs of the Slave States we would
not interfere. We regard Slavery, as it now
exists in the Southern members of our Confed
eracy, as a gigantic evil, but as one which has
been entailed upon the present generation by
their forefathers and by the policy of Great
Britain, and for the introcuctmn of which they
are not responsible. But against its further
propagation—atinst the enlargement of its do
mains under the flag of the Republic—against
its legalization by Congress on one foot of soil
where it does not now exist,—we do most sol
emnly and religiously protest.
THE CHOLERA. -The Hon. R. J. Walker, Secre
tary of the Treasury, has published a long ac
count of his experience during the Cholera sea
son of 1832. Not only did he attend on the
sick, and administer remedies with his own
hands, but he himself was attacked with the
epidemic. He was under the advice of Dr.
Cartwright, of Natchez, whose practice Was as
follows :
1. To watch the first symptoms of the dis
ease and administer the proper remedies with
out a moments delay. 2. To administer for.h
with after the first symptoms a dose composed
of ten grains of camphor, twenty grains of cal
omel, to be taken in powder, if practicable; if
not ; in pills. 3. As soon as the dose was swal
lowed, to strip the patient and rub him gently
but effectually with some stimulating ointment,
by as many hands as could have convenient ac
cess, the rubbing to be continued so as not to
occasion fatigue until the medicine produced its
' proper effect.
Under this system, of eighty-seven persons
attacked by the disease in one neighborhood,
only two deaths occurred ! This is the most,
convincing evidence that could be desired of the
curative virtues of any medinine. The distin
guished man who pledges his name and fame in
support of the facts stated, deserves the grati
tude of his fellow citizens for publishing them
so promptly.

at wit last week, in speaking of our remark
that if the U. S. Senate made faetious resist

Taylor, they would be made feel their power

ENCOFRAGING eon Vidit.uosi.—The Richmond
(Vu.) Southerner, says It is not generally
known, yet it is nevertheless ttne, that two
thirds of the , people of this state ate open and
undisguised advocates for abolishing Slavery—
and after the year 1850, when the census is ta
ken, their views will be.embodied in such ft
manner as to startle the South. Our info;nia.:
tion from It enitickeY and Tennessee induces us
to believe that a similar state of feeling exitts'
in those States.

sed and purified, and that tl.e use of arch lit spir
its be abstained from.

Callforaila Gold.
lhe California gold fever ►s raging in'
all parts of the Union with undiminish ,
ed fart•. Specimens of the ore recently
received from California, have been
sent from the war department to the
mint at Philadelphia, in order that its
quality may be tested; and if genuine,
worked up in the medals ordered to be
strucx for the officers who were engaged
in the Mexican war.
It is stated that eight vessels are lon
ding nt New York, four at Baltimore,.
and four nt Philadelphia; making six=

sumption, but even the luxuries of eas
tern civilization.
Tits GOLD MINES of California were
first discovered by the Jesuits, about the
middle of the last century. The Jesuits ,
concealed their discovery from the Gov
ernment, and the suspicion that they
had done so perhaps had something to
do with their expulsion from Mexico. In
1769, Don Jose G'alvez, Marquis of Son
ora, undertook an expedition into Cal
ifornia to ascertain the truth of the re ,
ports respecting the gold, " in the riv
ers, in the soil, and in the rocks." He .
Was accompanied by the celebrated Don
Miguel Jose de Arenza, who, discour
aged by the fruitless .search of a few
weeks, recommended the abandonment
of the enterprise, and for contending
that the Marquis was insane for proceed
ing, was thrown into prison, where lie
remained several months. Nothing at
all satisfactory, however, appears to
have resulted from the search of Galvez;
though the Jesuits afterwards disclosed,
in Spain and in France, that the charges
'of discovery and concealtpent made
against them, wore true.
