Two dollars per annul if paid in Advance. Three dollars at the end of the year. Advertise Menla inserted at the usual terms. From the journal of health. Cautions for the season. The Vernal Equinox is past Spring will Ere Long make its approach and nature hold her festival. Poets Delight to celebrate the Advent of gentle Spring the wind winged Emblem of Hope and love and youth and gladness. We would not mar such a fair picture by ill timed shading. Let it remain to be enjoyed by All who have taste for natural beauties and blessed at the Sanie time with buoyancy of health and constitutional Vigour. We would however that it should be them Pera Tely enjoyed by even this de scrip it Mph of persons. Oar province leads us not to turn away a graciously or a gratefully from the Rich stores of the seasons which a Bountiful Providence spreads before us but rather to pro Long the pleasure by a temperate and discriminating use. The sluggish movements and Pale shrunk skin induced by wintry cold Are now succeeded by the Light bounding step Carnation tint and sparkling Eye. The tendencies of All animated nature even to the vegetable creation Are expansive parts of the body before in a measure torpid Are now excited the senses Are More acute the feelings and intellect More susceptible of varied and energetic display. All the sympathies Between organs Are now doubly Active. The great changes of temperature and in the direction and Force of the winds at this season in which one Day differs from another As greatly As summer is at variance with Winter Are attended by corresponding mutations in the activity of the functions of the living body. The skin warmed and excited to perspiration in the noon tide Sun will without due precaution be chilled and have ils pores suddenly closed by the keen cold air of the evening and night. The hurried breathing and circulation by the Active exercises of a Vernal Day Are often causes of painful pains in the Side and Bead aches especially when they coincide with a sudden obstruction to perspiration. The sensibilities of the digestive organs being increased the full diet of Winter will if persisted in give Rise to lever and Aid in evolving Infra mation of the lungs or of the liver or Rouse into action latent irritations of the skin. In Fine there is a general tendency to perturbation in the vital movements of the animal Economy every part is prone to be excited and to transmit its disturbances to other parts. Is the skin obstructed in its office it makes the Throat lungs and Muscles suffer a As we see in sore throats coughs pleurisy is spitting of blood and rheumatism. Let the stomach be Over tasked and the complaints of the dyspeptic Are redoubled a sick headache and flushed Cheeks become his constant companions. The person who has suffered from intermittent fever during the preceding autumn is now in danger of a return of the disease. Gout and apoplexy excitement and madness itself not in a frequently Mark the Vernal Equinox. Scr Fula Little troublesome during the Winter now Breaks out with renewed v. A violence the glands or Small round a bodies a no the neck on each Side becop<5 enlarged and painful and if neglected they ulcerated. Diseases of Fie skin whether Tetter or others Are / also troublesome at this Lime and give their possessor most unpleasant notice of the rousing of sensibilities which bad been in a measure dormant through the Winter. This May strike the Reader As a dark catalogue a and a most startling and painful contrast with the highly contoured and enchanting accounts of the oets. We Hope it May arrest his at entice and guide him to profitable musings on the risks to which he is exposed. No one can boast his entire immunity from danger and consequent Freedom from the necessity of precautions. These we shall give with plainness and Brevity. They consist mainly in attention clothing exercise and diet. No sudden or for a length of time yet to come any diminution of the Winter clothing should be attempted. Exercise should be moderate less than could have been safely taken in a Clear Winter s Day nor ought the persons to be Long exposed to the Sun. If from any unforeseen Iii Rimini Dibi cause great bodily exertion used Boas to induce p fatigue a rest in the mailing stationary in rooms or going out t or night must be yer a Reilly avoided. Any feeling of cml Ness or aching of the limbs at night ought to be met by a warm foot Bath frictions with flannel or a flesh Brush and a draught of simple warm Herb Tea or even hot water. Increase of thirst feverish heat pains of the Bead or palpitation with a sensation of languor or uneasiness Are Best obviated by a reduction of the usual Quantity of food and a substitution almost entire of vegetable for animal sub ances. Liquors of All kinds distilled vinous or malt Are to to be specially abstained from. The experience of their toleration during the Winter will be most deceptive if taken As a guide during the Spring. Even the use of Coffee and Tea must in Many cases be discontinued the former especially if the person be subject to palpitations of the heart or diseases of the skin. People afflicted with the latter Are thought to have their blood in an impure state and to be under the necessity of having recourse to various de putative syrups decoctions and what not. They Are Fine game for nostrum makers and vendors and become ready dupes of such characters. We profess indeed to have ourselves some purifying and alterative beverages in the Virtues of which we place great Reliance. Before introducing them to notice we must however beg Pardon of those persons Labouring under so Romulous and cutaneous affections to whom they Are in a Peculiar manner beneficial for the two notable drawbacks to our winning their approbation and Confidence. The first is that these drinks Cost Little or nothing the second that they Are of Good taste and with Healing Virtues so unequivocally sanctioned by the Wise and experienced of All Ages and countries As neither to require nor claim any puffing notice or lying Eulogy. They Are not of the class of those marvellous a gents which Are pompously introduced to Public notice As hurting no body and curing every body which an infant might Swallow with impunity and the most desperate Leper take with the Assurance of his being cleansed from All impurities As entirely As the syrian of old after bathing by the Prophet s command in the Waters of the Jordan. Not to keep the Reader any longer in suspense the elixir of life and the genuine restorative Are first pure water and second milk either pure As obtained from the cow or diluted with water or its component parts separated As in butter milk or whey. Copious rotations of water at this season will be found the very Best purifier of the blood and the remover of All Pec cant matter while milk As an article of diet with Good Light bread baked on the preceding Day or vegetables May be regarded As the grand cordial and True tonic. This is in Many countries the food of the robust ploughman and Hardy Mountaineer whose spirits Are Strung in a very different key to what the Sipper of wine amp cordial the Bibber of Beer amp Porter or the tippler ardent spirits can boast of. Let us Hope in conclusion that the eulogist of panaceas and balms and balsams of Patent pills and powders and lovers of wonderful cures and searches after the incredible will have patience with us this once for proffering the language of nature and common sense even though so sadly at variance with their prejudices and interests. The people at Large Are still credulous enough for All their purposes of deception and in despite of our poor efforts will furnish them we greatly fear with a Rich Harvest in time to come As they have always done in times past. Stances of an unpleasant Char of or incurred Between the government of Colombia and myself previous to my departure from the capital of that country. To prevent misrepresentation and to give to my follow citizen who May feel interested in Mailer a Clear View of Tho a occurrences is the object of to Luis publication. So far As relates to the refutation of the charges brought against me by the government of Colombia it is the substance of a letter which i addressed to the set teary of state since my return. I thought Iti Iny duty to Laybe Lorethe president a full acco Pintof the manner in which i was treated but without any desire As i clearly expressed to him that any measures should be taken on by account which would in the remotest decree tend to interrupt the Harmony existing Between the two governments. How far the Honor of the country May require a departure from this course it was not for me to determine. In the hands of the executive of the United state it inns be in Safe keeping. The Raiona which induced me to publish my no Sci a letter to general Bolivar will be found in the pages preceding it. The notes which accompany it were deemed necessary for the proper understanding of some of the circumstances to which the letter refers. A of a w. A Harrison. Washington 22d March 1830. From the National intelligencer of March 30. A pamphlet of seventy pages has just issued from the press in this City entitled Quot remarks of general Harrison late envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary of the United states to the Republic of Colombia on certain charges against him by that government. To which is added an unofficial letter from general Harrison to general Bolivar on the affairs of Colombia with notes explanatory of his views of the present state of that we have not space to Day for any extracts from the body of the pamphlet but must Content ourselves however for the present with the Brief address which is prefixed to the the development contained in these remarks is a curious one and cannot fail to be highly interesting to All the friends of general Harrison and of our present minister Moore and to All who feel a con a political movements in co j Ftp a the Public. If me extensively known through of the papers Tuat some orc uni Gen. Harrison s Appeal. We have found time to read the Dougli the pamphlet which we Anno unt a to our readers a Day or two since in which under the modest title of a remarks Quot on certain charges made against him by the government of Colombia Gen. Harrison has Given a facts which is calculated of give a most unfavourable impression of the intelligence and liberality of the government and leading men of the colombian nation. We cannot pretend to follow the narrative throughout. The main facts however Shew that Gen. Harrison As soon As he was superseded by or. Moore became the object of the meanest suspicion to the ruling authority. Bolivar was absent from the government on a visit to the Southern provinces and had left a Council to manage the government during his absence. To one of the Council general Urda Nata the Secretary of War he left on his departure a commission authorizing him to take upon himself All the Powers which had been confided to the Council As far As related to the three Central provinces whenever an occasion should arise which in his opinion should make necessary thee Jercise of such extraordinary authority. Upon the insurrection of Cordova during the last summer these Powers were assumed by Gen. Urdaneta. By his order it was that repeated indignities were Shewn upon the most pre Foster Ous pretences to Gen. Harrisin and his suite before they could get but of the country. Quot the Power Gin by Quot Gen. Bolivar Quot says Gen. Harrison Quot did not authorize these Quot the authority was to be exercised of Quot ver three colombian provinces of Quot which Bogota was certainly one. But Quot the diplomatic relations of the coun Quot try belonged to the whole country Quot and not to the ruler of a part of it Quot this however was a matter of Small Quot concern to general Urdaneta. He Quot had the bayonets under his control Quot to enforce his edicts and did not Trou Quot ble his head to make Nice the charges preferred by this vice dictator against Gen. Harrison Are the most ridiculous conceivable As our readers May imagine when we state that one of them was that the general had instigated or. Gooding to assassinate the British and French commissioners the Secretary of War then acting As dictator and the Secretary of state of Colombia the proofs furnished by the Secretary of state Are the assertions that Quot a denunciation of him had actually been received from Carthagena Quot and that the government possessed Quot others of too secret a character to be did any one Ever hear the like or read it unless in the trials for the Gunpowder treason or in the arraignment of some destined victim in the dungeons of the inquisition. Notwithstanding the vagueness and generality of the charges and suspicions against Gen. Harrison he has As completely proved a negative upon every Tittle of them As it is possible to prove such a thing. The evidence which he has produced to Shew that the while Tenor of his conduct and conversation Public and private was respectful to the government and such As to discourage All hostility to it whether by foreigners or natives is irresistible. It covers the whole ground and excludes the Shadow of a doubt. It is Clear to us that Ivor. Moore a Ware of the indignities offered this distinguished countryman who Yei was entitled to diplomatic immunities would have been justified in demanding his passports As the alternative of a release of Gen. H. From t in espionage exercised Over Bim by the order of the government. If had Felt As we do on Reading this detail be would have taken this a purse. Perhaps however that which i he actually pursued was the More prudent one. One circumstance in this history we take room particularly to advert to As shewing the ii act abroad of the Flag Titus misrepresentations of party presses in this country concerning the course of our government in its relations with foreign Powers. Though the ridiculousness of the suggestions in the subjoined extract Are taken together obvious every one will readily recognize in them separately assertions that have been actually made in the Public prints of this country which have even found readers Here credulous enough to believe in them. Extract prom the journal of or. Tatt of. A a october 17.�?to-Day, a Friend care and earnestly enquired of us whether we Imd put Pur a signatures to any papier without know ing its contents he stated that it was reported that we had carried on correspondence with Antioquia that the government Here believed that a general Harrison had been recalled by general Jackson that the present government of the United states would deny us tha Justice of the demand we should make for reparation for the insult offered us by this government so they Felt secure of our ruin and Dishonour that it was reported that the Iii inters appointed by or. Adams were instructed to in Tefere in the internal concerns of the new republics to which they were accredited but that those appointed by general Jackson were instructed to pursue a contrary course of upon this subject it is known to All Nho Are familiar with the diplomatic history of the country that it is a standing instruction to our ministers to the different governments of South an Jer Ica wholly to abstain from any interference with the internal concerns of the governments to which they Are accredited. This injunction is first to be found if we mistake not in the instructions to or. Anderson our first and excellent minister to Colombia by or. Adams then Secretary of state and it has been substantially followed in All the subsequent or. Moore s address to the government of Colombia made Public that part of his instructions but disclosed no principle either of instruction or of action that had not been made familiar to statesmen by the uniform practice of the last and preceding intelligencer. To the editors of the a Newyork Gael be. Gentlemen according to my Promise i am about to give you a Brief sketch of or. Webster. Of his Early history it is not necessary for me to speak. With that at present i will have nothing to do. It is my desire to describe him As he appears on the floor of the Senate. I am aware that it is almost needless to sketch his person for among our citizens it is Well know but As the editor of the Ulster Sentinel has done so i suppose i must follow the example. Or. Webster then is rather a Bove the Middle height strongly built and slightly inclined to corpulence. His face is of the most expressive cast Sallow and without color but finely formed. His forehead is High but of irregular shape and his hair Coal Black and rather stiff and obstinate in its leanings. He has to use the words of the poet Quot an Asiatic Eye Quot intensely Black mild in its general expression but with a capacity to embody every species of sensation and passion which lofty Aims and dignified ambition engender. His Mouth is one of the finest i Ever saw. In the movements of Bis lips there is neither prudish compression nor flippant activity. His words fall naturally and the expression of his face betrays neither an anxiety too expressive which generally defeats its own object nor the slightest degree of carelessness. Indeed when speaking his features seem to be merely the passive instruments of his thoughts As he makes no apparent Effort to throw the Workings of his mind into the countenance. His voice is deep yet Mellow and pleasing Only when raised a Little above its natural pitch failing in its Ordinary roundness and volume. But he Seldom exerts it beyond its Power and is never guilty of the reduction and Ahmed us universally experienced by those who tax their vocal capacities too High. In his be stimulation he is appropriate but sparing and As there is no oratorical flourish in his speaking neither is there any thing theatrical in his gestures. The distinguishing feature of his oratory is dignified solemnity and in proportion As he seems impressed with the importance of the subject in which he is engaged is the hearer disposed to syn Mathise with the speaker. This circumstance explains the secret of the fixed attention with which he is always heard and the Peculiar Charm of his eloquence. The hearer is impressed with Quot a High and lofty feeling of the i momentous declare irions gravely and of solemnly made by the speaker purity of Bis Lang Tietge Aii the deafness with which his ideas Are expressed confirm the first impression Arisog from his manner. His delivery has always the effect to convince his hearers that he is in Catesi that what he utters he really feels and believes that the sources of his opinions Are neither party animosity spleen nor prejudice. Hence his More vigorous sallies produce a powerful effect and the conviction in his hearers that they Are not the ebullition a of passion while the equable Tenor of his oratory renders those flights of fancy which occasionally embellish his speeches doubly pleasing. They evidently come unbidden they Bear the stamp of the spontaneous growth of a highly cultivated mental soil instead of the Gaudy colouring of a tics. Iri argument few Mon can Excel or. Webster. He never loses sight of the deduction which he intends to draw or wanders in irrelevant declamation into subjects foreign to the matter in hand. If he digress it is to bring outward Aid to his reasoning not to confuse or mystify. With a self Possession which i have Seldom seen equalled he rises As coolly in his own defence age inst misrepresentation or the bitter Sari asn�8 of an opponent As to commence a debate on a grave and intricate subject. His irony seems to borrow Force from the Cool and impassioned tone in which it is expressed and he hurls Back the missile which had fallen Hurtless at his feet win Han aim As sure and a hand As steady As those of the ancient parthian. He is not much Given to sarcasm but in its use he knows Well the expression of countenance which gives it Point and Force. I Well remember an instance in which with but few words he made or. Woodbury appear exceedingly ridiculous by an allusion to the Parade made by the latter of his knowledge of or. Price s Book on annuities. The sarcastic al glance of his Eye As he referred to the Quot senatorial or. Price Quot made his allusion irresistible. As a great Many As a statesman aside from his Power As a Public speaker the character of or. Webster is before the country in his written speeches and other this evidence a Elf iced Quot film to tie first rank. But those who have listened to the totes of his voice and have followed him through the utterance of his speeches when the subject called Forth his full Powers will deem a a a not wrong to his senatorial Brethren no depreciation of their abilities if s conclude by saying Quot this is the noblest roman of them b. S. Extract from president via Sivington s first speech in Congress 1789. Fellow citizens of the Senate. And of the House of representatives r am Otje the Vicissitudes incident to life no event could have filled me with greater anxieties than that of which the notification was transmitted by your order and received on the 14th Day of the present month. On the one hand i was summoned by my country whose voice i can never hear but with veneration and love from a Retreat which i had chosen with the fondest predilection and in my flattering Hopes with an immutable derision As the Asylum of my it declining years. A Retreat which was rendered every Day More necessary As Well As More dear to me by the addition of habit to inclination and of frequent interruptions in my health to the gradual waste committed on it by time. On the other hand the magnitude and difficulty of the Trust to which the voice of my country called me being sufficient to awaken in the Wisest and most experienced of her citizens a distrustful scrutiny into his qualifications could not but overwhelm with despondency one who inheriting inferior endowments from nature and a Practised in the duties of civil administration ought to be peculiarly conscious of his own deficiencies. In this conflict of emotions All i dare aver is that it has been my faithful study to collect my duty from a just appreciation of every circumstance by which it might be affected. All a a dare Hope is that if in executing this task i have been too much swayed by a grateful remembrance of former instances or by an affectionate sensibility to this transcendent proof of the Confidence of my fellow citizens and have thence too Little consulted my incapacity As Well As disinclination for the weighty and untried cares before me Iny error will be palliate by the motives which misled me and its consequences be judged by my country with some share of the partiality a which they originated. Such being the impressions under which i have in obedience to the pub
