Therefore we conclude that the construction of any other instrument, however modified, the therapeutic neeiicy ot which essentially depends upon the same hmdamental principles, viz: “Support from below up wind, ‘ and “horizontal pressure over the transverse ax is of the spine” is “iium facto,” un i,legal inteitcrenec, consequently un imposition upon public creduity.

MEDICUS. •My *l, 1817. ic n Imfpst from the Army. The latest intelligence from Gen. Scott, is through Mexican sources to the effect that he would take up the line of march for the city of Mexico on the 2d inst. Ibis is hardly probably, ns neither Pillow’s nor lierces command could have reached* him by that time. From Santa Fe. It is said that 150 men, detached portions of various companies of Col. Price’s Regiment, were attacked on Red River, May 27tii, by 4UO Mexicans nnd Indians, and compelled to retreat with two men killed, one wounded, and the entire loss of horses, clothing and ammunition. Phe force was under command of Maj. Edmundson. C heap Postages. The cheap postage system is working admirably. At Buffalo the first quarter this year the increase over last year is $1,273. The whole receipts for the quarter are sf>.43o. The next great step in the progress of refonn must be a uniform rate of fire cents for all distances, or of five and three cents according to the present ratio of charge. Another Feller from General Taylor. Gen. Taylor, in a letter published in the Troy Daily Post, makes use of the following strong and unmistak able language on a subject of general concern—the Presidency: “ The Presidential office presents no inducements to me to seek its honors or responsibilities ; the tranquility j of private life, on the contrary, is the great object of my I aspirations on the conclusion of the war—but lam not msens ble to the persuasion that my services are yet j due to the country, as the country shall see fit to com mand them j if still as a soldier, I am satisfied ; if in higher or more responsible duties, I desire not to oppose | the manifest wish of the people— but I will not be the candidate of any party or clique, and should the na tion at large seek to place me in the chair of Chief Mag istracy, the good o f all parties and national good would be my great and absorbing aim.” The language of the above extract settles the ques tion as to the genuineness of the celebrated Signal let ter, nml places Gen, Taylor in a most distinguished position before the American people—just such a posi tion as would have been desired by every wise and pru- , dent member of the Wh'g party, and by every patriot of the nation. Why should Gen. Taylor be required to sink his national reputation and character, to become the leader ol either party \ Why open his breast to a malignant and unscrupulous press, when he can return to private life full of honors, blessed and beloved by the whole people ? No one could ask of him such a sacri fice. His language, like that of Washington, is, that if the country have confidence in his wisdom and patriot ism, and desire that he shall wield the sceptre, let the country—the whole country speak. In that event, and no other, will he consent to appear before the people as a candidate, and even then, “ the good of all parties the national good, would be his great and absorbing aim.” G**n. Taylor be it remembered, does not say what are his political views or what would be the politics of his administration, lie is well known to be a sound and moderate Whig, and will, doubtless, receive the support of a very large majority of that party—perhaps its undivided support. Being exceedingly moderate in his views, he will gather around him all the moderate men of the Democratic party —those who are tired and disgusted witfi the plundering policy of Mr Polk and his adherents. Speaking m regard lo this determina tion ol Gen. Taylor,tlie New York Courier Enquir er, very properly remarks: “ The affairs of the country have reached n crisis | which demands the services of such a inan. Questions I huve been introduced into the political discussions of the day, and pressed toa point where prompt decission is unavoidable, which derange and threaten to destroy all past organizations. Sectional differences are becom ing wide spread and embittered. Fat uous have sprung up in every part of the country, contemptible in them selves, but influential through their effect upon political parlies ol tlie day. Our foreign relations are becoming more and more important, and demand increased at tention. And oui relations with Mexico, whatever may be the immediate issue, will require he firmest, most vigilant ami enlightened supervision lor some y -ars to come, it the war continues, wiser couni ; ls must direct it* course ; a wider vision and a more pat riotic purpose must be enlisted in its control. If peace ensues, questions wdl grow out of it, scarcely less em barrassing or important than those connected with ac tive wur. Mere partizanship is not enough lor tins state of things. However wisy its purposes, however vigor ous its spirit, and however sound the principles which shape its character—no mere party can ever command that universal and hearty confidence from the people, which those high duties require. Without such a confi dence nothing effectual can be accomplished. The people, embracing the great mass of our inhabitants, of all parties, must feel thnt a strong, steady, patriotic and reliable hand is at the helm, or the ship of State w ill not escape the dangers which lie in her path. “ Had a man been created expressly for such an emergency, he could not have more perfectly satisfied nil its conditions than does Gen. Taylor. He has a clear head, a true heart aiui strong will he knows | nothing of danger, is emburrassed by no difficulty, is : prompt io discern, and certain to follow, the very best course in every case. The course of reasoning which 1 led him to stake everything, his army, his reputation, ! all he possessed, or could ever expect, against the over w helming odds at the battle of Buena Vista the calm, clear, far-seeing manner in which his mind worked un ! der the pressuie of thnt most fearful issue j—and the • firmness and |H*rfect self possession by which, in that contest, lie carried Ins little force through one of the se- j verest conflicts *ver fought upon this continent.—prove him to be a man adequute io any emergency, equul to any responsibUty.aud abundantly qualified for uny sta- ‘ (ton to which his fortune or his country may call him.” !

The Legislature of Maine have followed in their wake, and have passed the folowing resolutions which we find in tlie Albany Atlas, (Mr. Wright’s or.’ gan,) to which they were transmitted by the Hon. Han- nibal Hamlin : “ Resolved, That Maine, by the action of her State Government, and by her representation in congress should abide cheerfully by the letter and spirit of the concessions of the Constitution of the United States ; at the same time resisting firmly all demands for their en largement or extension. “ Resolved, That the sentiment of this State is pro found, sincere nud almost universal, that the influence of slavery upon productive energy is like the blight of mil dew ; that it is a moral and social evil ; that it does vio lence to the rights of man, as a thinking, reasonable, and responsible being. Influenced by such considerations, tins State will oppose the introduction of slavery into any territory which may be acquired as an indemnity for claims upon Mexico. “ Resolved, That, in the acquisition of any territory, whether by purchase or otherwise, we deem it the duty of the General Government to extend over the same the ordinance ot seventeen hundred nnd cighty-ycven, i with all its rights and privileges, conditions and immu nities. | “ Resolved, That our Senators in Congress be instruc. ted, and our prescii'a; . s requested, to support and carry out the principles ol ihe foregoing resolutions. “ Resolved, That the Governor be requested to trans mit a copy of the above resolutions to each of our i?en i ators and Representatives in Congress, and to the Gov i emorsof the several States.” It will be recollected that the resolutions of New Hampshire and Maine are the responses of Democratic Legislatures to the Messages of Democratic Governors. [Charleston Mercury. Washington ami Taylor. The resemblance between these two personages, which has been frequently remarked, is no fanciful thing, but a reality, which becomes more apparent in proportion as the characteristics of ihe two are regard ed. There is a similarity in their styles of writing and in their styles of fighting—in the open, manly simplicr ty and massiveness of character common to both, and in that nobler disinterestedness of nature which marks in both n patriotism as elevated as it is pure. The use of Gen Taylor’s name in connection with the Presidency has developed anew point of analogy between him and Washington. We invite the read ers attention to a coinpaiison of the subjoined extracts The first is from Gen. Taylor s recent letter: “ From many sources I have been addressed on the subj tol the Presidency, and Ido violence neither to myself nor to my position as an officer of the army, by acknowledging to you, as 1 have done to all who have alluded to me use of my name in this exalted connex ion, that my services are ever at the will and call of my country, und 1 am not prepared to say thnt 1 shall refuse if the country calls me to the Presidential office, but 1 can and shall yield to no call that does not come from the spontaneous action ami free will of the nation at large, and void of the slightest agency of my own. “For the high office and responsibilities of such an of- I fiee, 1 take this occasion to say, that 1 have not the ] slightest aspiration ; a much more tranquil and satisfoc ; tory life, after the termination of my present duties, I awaits me, 1 trust, in the society of my family and pnr- I ticular friends, nnd in the occupations most congenial jto my wishes, in no case can 1 permit myself to Is* | the candidate of any party, or yield myself to party schemes.” i The next extract is from one of Wasiunoton’s tet • ters in answer to an application in behalf of some oiie for an office: : “Should it browns absolutely necessary for me to oc- j cupy the station in which yoor letter pre-suppose# me, ! 1 HAVE DETI RMINED TO GO INTO IT I’ERt'LCTLY FREE l ROM ALL ENGAGEMENTS, OF EVERY NATURE WHATSO ; ever. A conduct m conformity to this resolution, would enable me, in balancing the various pretensions of different candidates for appointments, to act with A SOLE REFERENCE TO JUSTICE AND TIIF. PUBLIC GOOD,” In the answer of tin* Senate to Gen. Washington's first addrew to Congrew, they my : 1 “Wt ars arnamle, sir, that nothing but the voice of your fellow citizens could have called you from a re- ‘ treat, dioMcti with the fbmhst predilections, endeared by habit, nnd consecrated to the re|MMe of declining yeum We rejoice, und with us all America, that in obedience to the call of ourroiiuuoii country, you have returned once more to public life. In you, all par* | ties confide ; in you, all interests unite.’’ The resemblance here is so striking that no one can | mistake it. “What a scorching satire is it,” says the 1 i Richmond Republican, in which we find these quota tions, “upon the degeneracy of the times, and the de i crime of titer promt ve spirit of patriotism, that the sen ! tinvents of the late letter nitnhmed to G* n Taylor | *li*uld strike panic to a single soul, or waken opposi tion to luni for the? Presidency, when the |tnsition taken in that letter is precisely identical with thnt always taken by George Washington in reference to the duel magistracy!” Tlie New York Journal of Commert# devotes an article of some length and full of judieious remarks, to ih* subject of Gen Taylor and the Presidency. It Concludes as foil*was: “Gen. Taylor comes R ire tlie people uncommitted to any patty. Asa military man, lie had attended to hi* official duties, and not troubled himself with poli tfc* To be nti American W en*>iich for Mm without adding Whig or Loco, by way of adornment. No one can doubt that if called to the Presidency, he will nd . minister the government with impartiality, moderation 1 u °d wisdom/—yet with firmness ; qualities which have been developed at every step of his progress through Mexico. Knowing the horrois of war, he will be a man of peace. Circumspect in hi* language and de portment, he will not give needless offence to foreign powers. Greatly respected as he is, both abroad and at home, he will not liuve a character to gain, but only to support. Free from strong party predilections, lie will ann to do justice to all. In short, he will be Presi dent of this country, nnd not of a section or party. Success to him.”— Baltimore American. The Cotton Worm. The New Orleans Bee of the 10th instunt says. Great anxiety and alarm having been felt among die planteia of Coicordia and neighboring regions, in regard to the appearance of the cotton worm, induced Prufles *°r Forshfy to make a hasty excursion to several plan tations, for the purpose of inspecting tlie destroyer, and verifying his identity with the noctua gossyppii The result of his investigation is published in the Concordia Intelligencer, and he confidently expresses the opinion, | “ that the worm now feeding upon the cotton leal, in the’ vicinity of V idulis is not the noctua gnsxyppH —is not ’ the Home which destroyed th- crop of 1H46 ” He describes several points of difference, and adds, i “ the present worm is not only nut the same worm, but ’, to my eye, is not much like it.” Hr nlso says; “ I have been reminded by tho! who think differently, that tins may prove juat an destructive ns the noctua gomy n ,ii to the cotton plant. 1 hove to reply that 1 can g.ve no anirauce to the coutraiy. But if my opinion bo Souyht.it is decidedly in tlie negative. 1 rue, il H possible, anew enemy to the plant may tie introduced, but It is not likely. The noctua gosnyppii haa been known tor filly years, at least, tlie only great destroyer of the plant, and I think it probable thin the same will continue to he the ease* at irregular intervals, , so long as tlie plant shall continue lo grow ” In noticing the subject, the Editor of the lntclUgcn j cer remarks: “ l tlc nnicle by Professor Eorshey, in this number, will draw attention. We deem it due to those who have not ihe same opportunity to examine the subject to say that we differ from him. The worm now found on our fields, eats the Colton, and we care not by wliat | name it is called.” The Tonga.
