Affairs at Washington ?Our latest intelligence !ro*n the seat ol government inform* us of the continuance of lite uncertainty, confusion, and doubt, amid which the President and the remnant of his cabinet returned to their jiests. Nobody knows how to turn himself, and the future is indeed enveloped in the clouds. There is considerable substantial ground for the opinion that Captain Stockton will step into the shoes of Mr. Secretary Upshur, the latter continuing lo discharge the duties of the Department of State. Captain Stockton has made very respectable profit hncy in the political science of the present day, and is an ixcellent practitioner of those talents and graces which verily go npt without their reward under the present rtgirrU. 'Who is to be Attorney General, and who is to go to France? The Joneses nave not yet determined. Foreign News.?The steamship Great Western, from Liverpool for New York, has been at sea eleven days. On Friday she will no doubt make her appearance, bringing a cabin full ol passengers, and thirteen days later news from all parts of Europe. The Frttits of QJConnell's Abolition Speech? The Progress c^the Keaction.?The Tribune, with a sillinessytnd absurdity perfectly excusable in the organ of the Fourierites, and the persevering advocate of all sorts of ultraism in religion, ethics and politics, accuses us of a desire to crush the repeal agitation in this country, by the publication of .Mr. O'Connell's speech in denunciation of slavery. The public know very well that the uniform policy of the Herald has been to give a lair hearing to all sides. I'd all great questions occupying the public mind, it should be the aim of every journalist, who desires to serve his generation, to present them in all their aspects and bearings. It was in this spirit ihat wc gave publicity, on this continent, to this amazing speech. For the disagreeable effects which may lollow, the "Liberator" only is to blame. Movements in favor of General Cass.?The popular voice in Ohio is calling out very loudly in favir of Cass as a candidate for the next Presidency. Mr. Van Buren has 110 chance in that State, and in fVnnsy ivaina and Indiana he will also hnd the star of Case in the ascendant. A great mass meeting is .*>on to be held in Columbus for the purpose of making a decided demonstration in Ca6s's favor Many of the leading democrats in Ohio have appended their names to the circular summoning this great gathering ol the forces, the spirit of which may be fully perceived from the following extracts: Btit i? it the pait ol wisdom to risk all the great and lunduuntll principle, ol the Democratic party, upon the (ortum ? ol an individual whose success, in the event of ins nommaliou, would be extremely'probiemstical I Mr. Van Buren has never yet obtained the vote ol Ohio for the rre*iJency , anJ it is iirmly believed by our most sagaiou? |<oliticians, that he cannot, in any contingency, urceed either in this State or Pennsylvania In Indiana, m? pioipecti are still worse. A reference to the former vote- ol the*' Stales, combined witk present indications, places this beyond doubt. Independent of all this, the feelings now manifested by Mr. Calhoun's friends, seems to deprive us of all hopes of their aid in support of Mr. Van Buren. On the contrary, Mr. Calhoun has no chance in the West. With General Cass as our candidate, we haxard nothing in saying that the democracy would carry all these great States hy overwhelming majorities. In all the essential 'jualities of a hero, patriot and statesman, we trust that you will agree with us that Gen. Cass is in no degree behind any of his compvtitors lor the Presidential Chair, and he has the additional advantage of being an especial object of dislike to the anstocracy of England, on account of b >s successfully contending for his country's rights in the dominion of the seas. Briefly premi-ing these matters, we now solicit yeur opinion id regard to the expediency of calling a meeting of the friends of Gen Cass, to be holden at Columbus, and lso in relation to the time at which it would be most advisable to hold it?lor the purpose of adopting measures to promote his nomination by the Democratic National Convrn'.ion. If you approve of such a meeting, you will please advise us, by an early reply to this circular, and state the probable number that will attend such a meeting from your county. We believe the great mass of the people to be with us in this matter, and that if suitable steps be taken for the development of public opinion, there can be no doubt as to the result. Acceptable ?Matter for a hearty laugh in these ilaye of influenza, prostration, and soda water. We had it yesterday in the " official organ" in this city? c. g ?speaking of Captain Bob Tyler's repeal speech at Boston It is one of the most polished, enthusiestic and eloquent efforts that ever proceeded Irom so young a man, and furnb hf s the best evidence that the peculiar gittsof sincere, h'illiant and thrilling oratory for which his honored father i- ; distinguished, have descended in full lustre to the son - The destiny of Robert Tyler is a high and noble one. 1 ba world is bright before him, and he bean within himself faculties and jiowers enough to place his name nmongst the proudest and most honored in his country's history. It is not singular that to ayoung, fiery, and chivalric i pirit like Mr. Tyler's, the cause of poor unhappy Ireland should have appealed with extraordinary force. With 'hat benevolence, expansive as the sunshine, which is one of th - most glorious attributes of his nature, he could not look unmoved upon the struggles of that wretched yet noble land We Did him God speed in his bright career, with all our heart. That will do. Mistaken Clemency?Sentencing Glover, the ruffian, who committed the outrage on Miss Austin, to eighteen months imprisonment in the House of Correction. It ought to have been as many years.

This Island, it is well known, is a corporation speculation lor they gave some #60,1100 or #70,000 tor the island, according to the bequeator will of Mr. Randall, the original proprietor. Mr- Thomas Bell is the present very polite and worthy lessee of the island, for which he pays annually the sum of per annum. We advise the Common Council to look about the East Ktver.aud see if they cannot tind some other islands to purchase, always provided they produce good cherries. But, as we were saying, yesterday was the day set apart (or the annual visit which the Common Coun. cil, by the invitation of the lessee, pays to the aforesaid island. It was very quietly whispered about among the chosen lew that Alderman Hatfield's ury dock ummuuses would be ready alone o'clock in Irimt of the City Hall. Accordingly, at tliat hour the members of the Common Council, together with the Alms House Commissioners, and quite a number of ladies, with some children, were ready to enter the omnibuses which were provided lor their reception. Among ihe party we noticed the following Aldermen, ix Aldermen,and Assistant Aldermen:?Hatft' ld, who was rather the king of the party; Lee, who ta next in size and importance; Woodhull, the minority prince; Sco>s, who was happy with the ladies. Hut we cannot get on in this way, so here they come: Brady, W.Dodge and ladies?indeed most of the gentlemen were accompanied by ladies, and some of them very handsome, too?Nichols, Rawson, Dunning, Vandervoort, Brevoort, Seaman, Alderman Hart of the 18th ward, Nash, the Hon. M. G. Leonard, M. C., Patterson, Emmans, Ward, Smith, ex-Alderman of the 13th, Assistant Street Commissioner Waterman, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Dougherty, Saml. Jones Willis, Clerk of the Board ot Aldermen, Dr. Bartol, Clerk of the Board of Assistants, Mr. Comtroller Smith, Mr. Deputy Comptroller Young, and various others, wnuBr names we cannot recall, we must not torget to mention, however, that the Common Council, including the ladies, who were allowed to vote on this oceasionjicr se, appointed Alderman Hatfield to be the captain of the party, and John Jones, of New York,to be the official clerk to record the proceedings. The omnibusses were duly freighted, including the ladies and children, and the baskets, and every thing else that could hold cherries, and away we went to the tune? ' And were all picking, pick, pick, picking. And were all picking ripe cherries on the isle " Nothing specially worthy ol notice occurred, with the exception of the excessive heat,until we arrived at the foot of 125th street, upon the banks of the East river, opposite Randall's Island. Here the only means that presented of crossing over, was an old scow, which beggars all description. There were about 100 ot the whole party, and as the scow would not accommodate but fifty, the remainder of the party had to get over the best way they could.? The tide was sitting very strongly up the stream, and the wind was also blowing strong in the same direction. Alderman Nicols said he understood navigation right well, having studied the science in Cnnal street n ffrpat mnnv vpnrs arn?he was ar cordingly allowed to take the helm, that is, the oar. But no sooner had we cast off from the shore, than the current took usall very rapidly up toward Harlem Bridge,which was two miles above Randall's Island. Aid. N ichols insisting all the while that we were going directly for the other shore. Everybody else, however, saw that this course would take us to Harlem Bridge. By this time the scow began to make water, and all hands were called to the pumps, but no pumps could be found. The ladies were ot course alarmed, although such of them as wer" not sea-sick behaved with great propriety and presence of mind. "This will never do," said Alderman Ward; "we shall all go to the bottom"?whereupon lie seized an oar, and pulled away most lustily, to the great relief of the ladies?but unfortunately pulled the wrong way, as not unfrequently happens with those who pull one way and row another. Alderman Ward's rowing the wrong way, in addition to Alderman Nichols' steering the scow up stream, when he ought to have steered her across the stream, would certainly have sent the whole party to Davy Jones's (not John Jones') locker,had not Alderman Ward just at the very nick of time, when all were expecting to go to the bottom, broke his oar. li is lmpcssioie 10 uescrioe me scene ot contusion which ensued. The distressed situation of the scow was however seen, and boats put off to the relief of the party?and some on broken pieces of the scow, and some in one way, and some in another, got to land. Thirty-nine souls were saved from off the bcow alone. How many were lost we have not heard. On arriving at Mr. Bell's establishment every thing was in readiness?brandy, wine, crackers, cheese, cherries, by the bushel, joy, hilarity, and happiness to the full. It is impossible to describe the antics which were cut, nor would we if we could ; so great was the joy of escaping from shipwreck Although Mr. Bell had an abundance of nice fresh oxhearts, and all sorts of cherries ready picked, yet nothing would satisfy Alderman Lee but he must go to climbing the cherry trees, to the great alarm of Alderman Hatfield, who was afraid the young man would fall. Alderman Nichols undertook to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessor, but fell a martyr to his gallantry to the ladies, lor whom he undertook to pick the cherries Alderman Ward did not care much about cherries, but took a particular fancy to some fine poultry upon the premises, and so you might see him lurking about the fences with a stick in his hand.? He fell upon two very black young crows behind a tree, which he mistook for hens, and was very anxious to ascertain when they would lay eggs again. As they were young cocks, it was difficult for Mr. Bell to satisfy him, and the subject was finally referred to the Committee on Arts, Sciences, and Schools, of which Alderman Woodhull is Chairman, from whom a Jr.cid report may be expected. As for A Idermen Leonard and Seaman, they found infinite amusement in the dairy yard when they discovered two dozen splendid cows, which sup ply the Corporation tea table at six cents a quart, pure milk, there being no Croton water at Randall's Island. Alderman Leonard thought an immense savin? might b- made ifthe Common Council would only go up to the Island and take the milk originally in the natural way. As for Alderman Smith, the only remark we heard him make was, that he tried very hard to behave himself with propriety. Alderman Hart, of the 18th ward, who still holds o\er to the great disapi>ointment of the next in succession, made himself very useful in carrying lemonade to the ladies. He never drinks lemonade himself. The first regular toast, proposed by Alderman Lee, was to the abundant hospitalities of Mr. Hell, the lessee 'Ho next regulur toast was to John Jones, of New York, who gave the Honorable the Corporation ot the City of New York- to which, in the itfowncr ol tiif Honor the .Mayor, Alderman I-.ce responded in a very neat and pithy *|?ecli. Iit fine, everytlitng parsed oil with the most unj hounded happiness to nil und singular present, and all left the island wishing that cherry time would come once a month the year round.

Willi t reat justice in the cause which he espouses, harsh terms may be ill-timed and inappropriate, though ihe provocation to intemperance of expression is so great as to mitigate its culpability. We nevertheless allow him to stale hw own case, and urge it in his own way, which he does as lollowa.? Mr. Editor? There appears to exist among our mechanics und regular dealers, an association ot feeling and true interests to break up this unlawful and pernicious system of traffic; and from what has already appeared before the public, 1 should judge had proceeded from a strong body of our citizens, who ^rrin uncrmmru 10 rruuicuir iur rvu. u is n cuuiuc ot extreme gratification to tuysell to witness this concerted action, as it whs only by union that we secured our national independence. The editors ot severs I of our popular daily journals have also enlisted their powerful aid to sustain the justice and the demands ot our hard-working mechanic, who toils all night and all day to sup(>ort iliuiselt, his wile and his liitle ones, who are dependent upon hisexertions tor all the enjoyments and cotnlorts ot life. And the dealers 111 merchandize of every deocription also have just cause to enter their complaint to the lathers ot our city for suffering so great a nuisance to exist amoog us. This growing curse upon our mechanics, and dealers in every kind of goods, wares and merchandize, 1 would iutorm you, is not sutlered in any city ot our whole Union. But here, in the city of New York, here they congregate troin the tour quarters of the earth, take their stand in front of our very stores and dwellings, display their trumpery and stolen goods in lull view to the multitude, and, without having a license, commence business. The store keeper dares not affront them, I uor the police to remove them. Une id attain ot the mob, that loves excitement, and the other of his office, tor fear of losing it. The Alderman and his Assistant wink at the violator of the law. Consequently it opens a wide avenue for all to continue on in their business until the free and independent mechanic and merchant of our city steps up fearlessly and boldly and demands ot our authorities a complete renovation throughout.? There appears to be only a complaint against selling goods on our side walks, some ignoramuses trequently express. I am daily an eye witness of hawkers and i>edlars selling articles ot dry goods from covered top wagons, owned by English importing merchants in Pearl street, who 1 am inlormed have at least a dozen or more constantly in action in this city and around the country, without any license; also hawkers of tin and wooden ware hanging on their arms and shoulders for display? gloves, hosiery and suspenders by the arm fullcoats, pantaloons and vests thrown over their backs ?hats and Bhoes in baskets?watches and jewelry in trunks?hardware and cutlery in cases?stationery and ink in small bundles?crockery and glassware in market baskets?and every thing, be the same more or less, the original property ot some hardworking mechanic or storekeeper who has been so unfortunate as to be robbed by some scoundrel who finds his support in this class of men. lean also enumerate among this class of itiuerent dealers, men who have no habitation or name?here today and off to-morrow?pay no license, rent or taxes?support no families?feel no interest in the welfare ol our country, and who art the main instruments of all the crime committed by the young and rising generation ot our country. Mr. Editor, while I feel interested in the cause that protects us all, allow me to go a little farther and solicit the aid of our landlords. Nothing butco-operaI tion of all classes of society is wanted, and wr shall gain our cause. It must be broken up entirely, and 110 licenses granted ot any kind whatever, whether on the sidewalks, around the markets, in wagons, handcarts, barrows, baskets 01 trunks. None but those who hire stores and dwellings, and conduct business on honorable principles must be encouraged and sustained. A Mechanic of the Fourth Ward On the subject on which our correspondent leels so intensely, we may say for his consolation that the Common Council have taken steps which may lead to a mitigation of the existing evils. Committees of the two Boards have been appointed to digest an ordinance which shall protect the legitimate trader, and a committee from the Mechanics and Traders Association, has been delegated to confer with them on the question which so vitally affects their interests. Facts aud arguments in that quarter, then, may aid the cause, and to that body we commend the letter of our correspondent. i Excellent.?

Bowery Amphitheatre.?The beautiful pantomimic act entitlfd the Sprite of the Silver Shower produced at this establishment should be witnessed by all the lovers of equestrian performances. The little Miss McFarland is certainly a prodigy, and the feats of Master Dlenroy is astonishing. Later from Mexico.?By the arrival of the brig Petersburg, Capt. Larkins, from VeraCruz, we have received our files of the " El Siglo Diez y Neuvc" to the 30th of May inclusive. We find nothing very interesting or important. Santa Anna stands 011 a tottering foundation. His administration must very soon be brought to a close amidst violence and blood. Three thousand Indians, and one thousand troops, have besieged Chilapa. Gen. Braro writes the Mexican Secretary of War, that he cannot aid the besieged, as he has only two hundred men under his command. Mexico is in a very unsettled state, riots and outbreaks are continually taking place, all through the interior of the country. The yellow fever has disappeared from Guayaquil. The quarantine is removed from vessels coming from that port to Mexican ports. Later from Havana.?By the arrival of the brig Hayne, at Charleston, we have received advices down to the 17th inst. Our files contain nothing of importance. Bull fights were the order of the day ? Four glorious fellows fell,but before the fatal thrust, well did they give battle, and four dead horses, four others badly gored, and a picador crushed between the palings and a dying horse so badly, that it is doubtful if he will recover, atten how well the in. domi'able fought. There had been three executions within the last fortnight, and an equal numb.-r of nzotailoa, or whipped. These punishments were all within one month after the committal of the of* fences. There were rumors of negro disturbances in the islands of Jamaica and St. Domingo. Of buei rx'ss in general, ine ivoucioso says: ? "Comparing our statmticsof commerce for the month of May ln*t with that of the same month for the yesr previouj, will he seen haw ill founded are the croukings of our Penlrnular friends of the prf??.

The increase on export duties is $17,0.77 <V2J; while on the imports the dvlicit if only the trifling sum ot $1,862 42J." Latkrfrom Tort ah Prinok ? By the arrival of llie Pandora,Captain l'axton, ut Boston, we Iihvc advices to the 13th. We learn that it was very sickly nt Port au Prince. Almost every vessel in port had lost sonic of jis crew hy the yellow lever. The Knglish Consul died a few davs before ihe Pandora lelt, ol the prevailing epidemic. Later from Nassau ? By the schooner Helena, from Kleuihera, we have the re|mrt that on the 17t!i dune the captain of the British packet schooner Nonpareil front Nassau, New Providence, reported to Mr. Bethel, merchant, at Governor Key, Kleuthera, that a British man of war brig, of 18 guns, had nn engagement with a piratical bark, during which the brig was sunk, and all h inds lost. This engagement w us s?e,i by several of the crews of small drogers who were passing at the time. This we give as we neeived it, in?t having much belief in the truth of the retort. Thk late Mb. Lkijakk.?A recent number of the " Madwoman" contains the following brief memoir and deserved tribute to the talents and virtue of the late Attorney General:? Mr. Lac. sax was born in Charleston, South Carolina, in the year 1797. His early education und principles were formed under the care and tuition of the Rev. Dr. Wa.ldell, a celebrated Scotch Divine, whose good tort omit has been, to have witnessed the value and importance of the sound lesions thus early inculcated, exemplified in the highest stations by the most prominent and aldu men of that State. Alter having thus laid the foundation of bis education, and having imbibed at this pure jyuntain that mora) instruction and rectitude of prineiivbv which shone so highly throughout his w hole career, he w as ad nutted to Columbia College, where he graduated with the first honor and the most marked distinction at eighteen years of age. Kven at this early period ot his life, the eyes of his class and college were turned upon him with hope and expectation, as the first among the rising young men of his native State, and destined to occupy an eleva ted post in her own and the National Councils. Encouraged and stimulated to realixe these anxious wishes, and ambitious lor the service and honor of his country, he embarked for Udinburg to complete, in the accomplished schools of its University, the higher attainments, which subsequently formed so interesting and valuable a part ol his public history. Having established an enviable repu. tutiou at Edinburg, beloved by all, the companion ol the Professor, the friend ot the learned and great, he then made the tour of Europe, perfecting himself in the mo. data languages, storing away knowledge and experience, and returned to Carolina at the age of twenty-two years, a finished scholar and a promising statesman. He was immediately electe 1 to the Legislature, and centinu ed in that body, without interruption, until 1831, when he was chosen Attorney General of the State? How well he tilled these olhces will be remembered with pride and satisfaction by every Carolinian ? The statute book owes to him some of its most unfading pages, aud that ho imparted dignity and character to a legal position already distinguished for the learning and ability of those who had filled it, will be admitted by all familiar with the rise and progress of the eminent lawyers ot the State. He was invited by General Jackson, to take the mission to Belgium. His diplomatic career, through four years, was signalized with success, adding, by his own fame and eruditiou to the reputation of his country, and earning lor himself, through the polished and refined circle of Europe, a character for philosophic research and splendid acquirement. Before retiring from thin mission, he was nominated Dy the I'eople of his native city as their Representative in Congress, and was elected by a powerful vote, immediately ou liis return. Of his position in the National Councils it is needless to speak ; his works, whilst* attached to the Committee ot Foreign Affairs, form an essential part of our public history, and his efforts on the flooraf the House, in canvassing the great political questions of the times, will eudure whilst patriotism shall preserve the reminisceases of that Congress. From that period, until tendered a seat in this Administration, he was engaged in professional pursuits, involving issues the most intricate and delicate which have ever been submitted to the juris prudence of the country, in all of which, without one

exception, be never tailed to sustain himself as a jurist deeply and thoroughly skilled in all the great principles at stake. He has gained lor the office of Attorney General a name which will not shrink from comparison with any like position in any other country. His well-schooled habits of study seemed formed and adopted to the philosophy of the law. In the " wars of the giants" before the Supreme Court he was at home. He lost not a single case. Such is a brief glance at the history of him who is now numbered with the silent dead. He was patriotic in devotion to his country, a trieud to humanity, generous ia his impulses, strong and affectionate in his attachments, and manly, consistent and honorable in every relation of life. At his customary Lecture on the Constitution of the United States, to the Students of Dane Law College, on Thursday, the 22d instant, Mr. Justice Story made the following remarks upon the character of Mr. Legare. They were taken down by a gentleman present, and have been published under the sanction of the learned Judge, in the Boxton Adveriixer:? When I last met you, I little anticipated the calamitous event, which has since occurred, in the death oi a distinfuished man who expired in the city of Boston on Tuesay morning last. Whoever considers the principles of the Constitution can never forget him; for he was firm and true to its doctrines, and exhibited that elevated and comprehensive statesmanship, which the Constitution demands of its real friends. 1 refer, of course, to Mr. Legare, the late Attorney General, with whom I had the happiness to be intimately acquainted; whom 1 knew not ouiyasan accomplished gentleman, but also as a great lawyer. I speak of him to you here, not merely to pay a deserved tribute to his worth, but because I know ot no man whom I would sooner propound as an example to young men entering the profession,which he has so much adorned. I had indeed lookel to him with great fondness of expectation. 1 had looked to see him accomplish what he was so well fitted to do, what, I know, was the darling object of his pure ambition?to engraft the Civil Law upon the jurisprudence of this country, and thereby to expand the Common Law to greater usefulness and a wider adaptation to the progress of society? It is a most singular circumstance, that eminence in general literature should, in the public mind, datract from a man's reputation as a lawyer. It is an unworthy preju dice, for certainly the science of jurisprudence may borrow aid as well as receive ornament from the cultivation of all the other branches of human knowledge. But the prejudice exists?and yet one would think that the pnblic hud witnessed so many examples of men who were great scholars and great lawyers likewise, thst the prejudice might bu at this day disarmed ol no much ot its quality, as is apt to do injustice to the reputation of living men. Lord Mansfield was a most eminent scholar in general letters; lint he was also unsurpassed in jurisprudence. Sir VVm. Blaekstone was so elegant a scholar, that his Commentaries are models of pure English prose; but they are none the less the invaluable mine of the laws of England. Lord Stowell, the friend and Executor of Dr. Johnson, was, in various attainments, exceeded by iew; but his knowledge ol general jurisprudence was greater than that of any man ol his day. Some ol the proudest names now on the English benches are some of England's best scholars. But there, as well as here?though certainly it is far greater here?the j ublic prejudice almost denies to a great scholar the right to be eminent as a jurist. Dr. Johnson bas said? And mark what ills the scholar's life assail, Toil, envy, want, the patron and the gaol. None of these were the evils of our friend. His only evil was, that his reputation as a lawyer was sometimes underrated, because oi his great general attainments. But nothing could be more uniounded than this idea. He considered the Law as his puisuit; as his object; as the held of his ambition. Fifteen years ago, I knew him as an eminent lawyer ; he afterwards went abroad in a diplo matic capacity; and, at Brussels, where be resided, devoted himselianew to the study of the Civil Law, with a view to make it subservient to the great object of hi* life, the expansion of the Common Law, and the forcing into it the enlarged aud liberal principles and just molality ol thfl Roman jurispiiidencc. This object he seemed about to accomplish; lor his arguments hiforo the Supreme Court were crowded with the principles of the Roman law wrought into the texture of the Common Law with great success. In every sentence that I heard, I was struck with this union ol the two systems. At the same time, the whole was wrought in a style beautiful and chaste, but never psssing from the line ol the argument nor losing sight of the cause. His argumentation was marked by the closest logic; at the same time he had a nresence in sneaklnir. which 1 have never seen excelled. lie had a warm,rich style, but he hail no declamation; lor he knew that declamation beiorgs neither to the jurist nor to the scholar. It was only during the last summer, that he wrote to ine that he intended to translate Heineccius's Elements j for he wished, he said, to entice the American Lawyer to the study of the Civil Law. He added, that he had nothing to gain by undertaking suck a work, but that he would undergo the labor as a homage to his country. Knowing his eminent qualifications for the task, I advised liirn to make the translation, and to add to it not- s of his own, so as to adapt the principles to the existing state of the Common Law; telling him that he would thereby confer a benefit on his country, which no man of the age would be liacly to exceed. A few years since Fie published a paper in the New York Review, on the Origiu, History and Influence of Roman Legislation, and afterwards printed it separately from the Review itself. Whoever reads that essay?and 1 hope you will all read it?will p- rceive his vast attainments in thoCivil Law. You, who have not hea-d him, cannot judge of his attainments in the Common Law ; but I, who heard his arguments, know that he devoted himself to the Common Law with a wise perception of its defects, and a purpose to ameliorate them with the riches of theCivil Liw; and I may say of hirn, having seen his mnstery ol botn systems of jurisprudence?that he walked wi'.h them triumphantly, the one in ene haul, and the other in tlio ether hand, in the path of a great jurist. Although he might have lui.l other places in the gift of the Government?as I have been told?yet he iieaired only th? ollice of Attorney General, nnd he desired that for thesnkeofthe Law. When, therefore, the question is asked, was he eminsnt as a lawyer ? I answer, no man more so. Do you c*k what was the secret of his eminence 7 1 answer, it was diligence, i redound study, and withholding his mind from the political excitements oftheday. To me, his loss is irreparable. How few do I see around me, of severe studies in jurisprudence, willing to devote their days and nights to the mastery and improvement of it as a great science; and looking for the lame that ernes ol devotion like his. Such study is not lamml liy Ik* breath of popular npplau.se, and so it is rare. Rut in him it shone most hi iliiantly. I pronounce him n great loss, as one of the most valuable lights o jurisprudenc e that it has been my happiness to knowjf iny misfortune to lose. It was hut the day before yester day ?and before I had hnird of Ins denib, the news ol which met me as I was going from my own house?that I had taken dow n Cictrn dt C'lnrit Oratoi litis, and had turned to the passage where h? begins " As T was leaving ( ilieij to go to Rhodes, I heard of the death ol llortensius" llortensius, the grout Koman lawyer, so much and so justly praised by Cicero, died, as we nie told, when his usefulness had In en completed.

How many are deluded in the fancied security that they aro cured. To how ntuny does it prove a latal error. A slight cough increases until it becomes seated.

LIGHT!?A night deep as that oI the dark age, has for many centuries hung over the means of removing many ol the worst maladies to which the human frame it liable; and the silent valley has been peopled with innumerable victims who might have been saved had the means of cure been knewn, but who,lortbe want of that redeeming knowledge, perished before their time, and left the world to lament their loss. Trior to the discovery of America, there was no pdequate remedy for many grievous and fatal maladies. The con. sequences of that event enriched the materia medica with two curatives ol sovereign virtue. These are Peruvian Bark and Sarsaparilla? the first so essential and almost specific in cases of fever and other iaflammatory coinplaints; and the latter invaluable iu glandular, hepatic, cutaneous, organic diseases. These in their crude state were still, however, of limited utility, and it was reserved to the nineteenth century to concentrate their powers, and hence Increase their efficiency. The result has been that these poweilul agents, ia their new and energetic tonus of administration, have triumphed over difficulties that battled lor age,s the most profound and skilful practiiioncis of the healing art. French chemistry gave to the world the rich boon of aconcenftated lorm ot the valuable qualities of the first, under the name of Quinine, and what foreign science achieved for the Peruvian Bark, domestic skill has effected for bait>uparilla. Sir stantiul and wide extended as are the merit and fame of the former, in both respects Bristol's preparation of the latter bids fair to rival and equal it. In complaints to which the former is applicable, the advice and judgment of medical knowledge and experience is absolutely essential, for the state of the patient and the progress of the malady must direct and govern the appliesHon of the remedy,both as to time und quantity. In those more slow and deeply seated diseases, for which Bristsl's r-arsapanlla is b specific, (as scrofula, secondary syphilis, and generally all affections of the principal organs, glands, bones and tissues.) no such care is requisite , it is only necessary to admiuister the remedy agreeable to the prescribed|directlons, and pet severe in its use until the seeds of the malady are expelled from the system, and health completely restored. For all these complaints, and their manifold varieties,Bristol's Sarsaparila is a safe, sure, and reliable remedy, and the only one Beware of imitations and counterfeits, of which a host have been called up by the wondetful success of the genuine Bristol's preparation. They are the offspring of avarice, and are the cheaply and ignorantly compounded nostrums of men who care not it the hopes, and health, and even lives of the afflicted fall a ssciince to their deceptive pretence, so that they can but gratify their insatiable and remorseless cupidity.
