have no authority over the subject of abolishing i
slavery unless it has bceu specially given. In '
the absence of such express control, tin* people ol !
the state can oZonc dispose of the subject. The I
I erritories iii niy conception stand on the same
basis as the federal district. But there is one re->
•laiuiug view ot the whole ground which I cannot ]
avoid presenting. From the evident connexion I
between the questions propounded, together with !
the fact, that one of the writers is an elector up- )
on the \\ bite ticket, and perhaps the others his j
supporters, it seems clear that the idea is intended
to bo conveyed throughout the communication,
that Mr. \ an Buren is barred from the I’residen
cy by the fact of his admitting the disputed pmv er. '
und that a representative who Anus it, acts in- j
consistently. in sustaining his cause—To those who
are disposed to think either branch of the propo- i
sition tube true the following extract may be ad- |
duced. Mr. Van Buren says in his letter of the I
6th of March last, to a number of gentlemen ofi
North Carolina, whosought hi- opinion on the con- |
ititutional question—“tints receiving the matter I
"would not ti.’in the lights now befote me feel ;
"myself safe in pronouncing that Congress does I
“not possess the power of interfering with, or
abolishing slavery in the district of Columbia.’ I
Hear the conclusion. “ But whilst such are my I
presentgimpressioiis upon the abstract question ot i
tile legal powerof Congri.v—impressions which 1 >
shall at all times be not only ready but disposed I
to surrender upon conviction of error—ldo not
hesitate to give it to you as my deliberate and
well considered opinion that there are objections
to the exercise of dlis power against the wishes
of the slave holding States as imjxrilive in their
nature and obligation as the most palpable want of
coiuiitutional power would be. Some gentlemen
cau not conceive of such a case. Let me folio w
iug be taken as examples. Congress has an un
limited power to raise taxes. A tax of one hun
dred dollars upon each individual, without an ad
equate emergency, would be equally objectionable
“ as the most palpable want ot constitutional pow
er would be." The same may be said of the pow
er to declare war, to make treaties, to raise and
support armies, and of every delegated power ab
surd to an extreme. In conclusion wo may say
that Mr. Van Buren's opinion, is, that the aboli
tion ot slavery in the district of Columbia would
involve a violation of obligations equally sacred
with those of the constitution itself. For one 1
consider his pledges as ample as those of Judge
White. 1 can not distrust their redemption. 1
know that his friends have stood with us in frater
nal zeal, shoulder to shoulder, repellin- the as
saults of abolition, whilst his opponents, north of
the Potomac, have made speeches in the hallsuf
Congress in favour of the fair petitioners, and giv
en the petitions in many respects a kindly recep
tion. Gov. Marcy, tbe political friend of Mr. Van
Buren stands a monument of good faith towards
tbe South, in recomtnendiug to the last legisla
ture of N. ork the suppression of incendiary
publications, by penal enactments. If this should
ever be done, it will be by the friends of Mr. Van
Buren, whilst abolition will array its black ban
ners against it. He is not their 'idol—but rather
the subject of their vituperation. and political ab
boreuce. Let the mauiiesto of Arthur Tappan j
and his coadjutors deciare—when they recommend !
the choice of any other candidate. If after these]
facts gentlemen will still deliver themselves over
to doubt, and gloomy shadows on the subject of
abolition so far as .Mr. \ an Buren is concerned,
they would seem to be infested with a malady for
which “ no cure cau be found in the resources of I
" reason and argumentation.” 1 have the Honor
to be, Gentlemen, with very greatiespect,

therewith in any manner, the undersigned were ]

Messrs. .1. M. Ragland, 11 illiam Aiimuions

Gentlemen :—I have the honor to acknowl
edge the receipt of your communication, as a
committee of friends of the Union Party, bear
ing date at Newnan, on the Bth instant, asking
me, whether, in my opinion, “ Congress has the
constitutional power to abolish slavery in .the !
District of Columbia.”
No one, I believe, can recognize more fully |
tbe right of the voter to inquire into the opin- j
ions and principles of the candidate for his suf
frage, than 1 do; nor admit more broadly the ;
right of the constituent body to instruct their j
I therefore take great pleasure in responding
to your interrogatory, by saying, that 1 do not
believe Congress possesses any constitutional
power to abolish slaveiy in the District of Co
lumbia, uor in the States, nor in any of the ter
’ritories of this Union.—Nor do 1 believe that
the Federal Constitution has conferred any pow
er upon the Government created by it, to alter,
abolish, or interfere with slavery, or any other
of the domestic institutions of the country, in
V any manner whatever. These arc my own opin
ions, and so far as I know or believe, are the
opinions of my colleagues in the House of
Representatives of the United States.
In this my answer, 1 have sought to be so ex
plicit, that no shadow of doubt can possibly rest
upon my most solemn and unqualified denial to
Congress, or any other branch of the General
Government, any right to intermeddle with
slavery in any manner, or in any place, within
the wide spread limits of this Union.
Permit rue, in conclusion, to tender to you,
and through you, to that portion of my fellow
citizens whom you represent, my sincere thunks
for affording me, this public opportunity of re
pelling imputations which have been so free!v
cast upon the principles of my colleagues and
myself, since the commencement of the last
Session of Congress.
Willi great respect, I am Gentlemen,
Your obedient servant.

Mr. Editor l discover there is a vacancy in
the Electoral Ticket of thu Union Party of Geor
gia, dial has been nominated for President and
Vice President of the ( nited States, by the resig
nation of General Watson of Muscogee,
Among 11*; many disting-'.ished individuals
whose uaiue-i may be offered e-, an Elector, allow
me to offer that of General DAVID BLACK
SHEAR, of Laurens County.
General Blackshear is well known in our State,
»s a distinguished man and a republican of the
Jeffersonian ami Jackson school, and is in favor of
, Air. Van Buren, who has promised to carry out the
principles of Presideiit Jackson.
True, Gtncral Blackshear has retired from pub
lic life—-so has Nathaniel Macon, of North Caro
. lina, in the maturity of intellect, and well versed
m the political history of our country, ami is as
Well acquainted with those men and their priori
pics as any man.
General Blackhiikaii was nominated an Elec

were elected. Jat others do what they may, nr

The question will not bo asked, whether a man
Ipjonged to the Troup or (.lark party.—The ques
• lion is. whether he is of the administration party,
. and for having the principles of Andrew Jackson
•. carried ouf, a;i<| in favor of the nomination of the
Baltimore Cpqveution ?
General Blackshear is the man--let the nomin
' ation take place.
i Although so fat ns we know, the indications of
public sentiment in favor of the name of Pitt Mil-
] ncr, Esq. have met the approbation of the Union '
• Party, and has been already placed upon the Elec
toral ticket, we cannot forego the pleasure of lay-
; ing before our renders, the above just and wellmer
; ited tribute to the patriotism, integrity, and politi- I
I cal consistency ot General Blackshear.
He has seen much public service—w as an Elec- j
tor tn 1832, and with a full know ledge of the po
litical history of our distinguished men, he sup- I
ported, and voted for ANDREW JACKSON
and .MARTIN VAN BUREN.
He has seen nothing since that time, to shake i
his confidence in Mr. \ an Bureu. and in eighteen
hundred and thirty six, as in eighteen hundred
and thirty two, he gives him a decided prefer
ence over all his coinpettitors.
The example of such men is worthy of imita
tion, and cannot fail to produce the most solemn
reflection, and serious enquiries in the minds i.i >
his fellow citizens.

Major Howard's Declension—Gen. Glascock \
Major Howard declines bolding a poll for the J
avowed purpose of allowing his friends an op- !
portunity of voting for General Glascock- If
this were the only object, it might perhaps pass;
though it would indeed be « rare instance
suffering for AN ADVERSARY.
But Major Howard probably expects to do
more : He probably expects, by allowing his as
sociates an opportunity of voting for General )
Glascock, to induce many of his adversaries to 1
vote for one or more of the Nullification Can
didates. If, indeed, lie can induce them to vote
for all, he will do a good business: One for ]
eight would be an advantageous arrangement.'
But State Rights and Union Men will, 1 appro- |
bend be unable to comprehend the justice of]
such an arrangement.
The course pursued in relation to Gen. Gias- ]
cock is remarkable. He has been highly ex
tolled by the Nullifiers; whether for the pur
pose of bestowing due praise on him, or dispar
aging his colleagues, or detaching him from his
associates, may be matter of doubt. He will ]
not forget the severity which has heretofore been !
indulged towards him, nor will he be caught in j
the toils which have been spread all around him. |
He needs not the aid to be derived from a j
com prom principle, and, indeed, he might I
lose more than he would gain by it.
The Nullifying presses may, as they are en- -
deavouring, neutralize the impression made in ]
their own ranks in favor of General Glascock, |
but the indications of the day prove him to be !
strong; they prove the Union ticket to be
strong. And tbe declension and declarations of I
Major Howard, estimable as he is on some tic- ]
connts, show the probability of failure to the ]

This attempt nt political bribery has already

Judge Longstreet talks strangely about Clark

But the most clumsy attempt on the part of
the Nullifiers, is that recently made, to secure
the defent of eight Union candidates by con
senting that one, whose election was sure, should
be voted for by the Nullifiers! Already, too,
hey tell the eld Clark men who favor the elec
tion of Judge White, that, if they elect all the
Union candidates for Congress, it will favor the
election of Air. Van Buren; and tho Weekly
Sentinel of the 2d inst. tells te people that
“ there are now two tickets before them
one is the Georgia ticket, and the other is the
ticket for Mr. Van Buron,” Ac. In tho Geor
gia ticket, it includes the names of Gen. Glas
cock, a decided Van Buren man, of the Union
Party, and of al) the remaining, candidates of
the Nullifiers! It is thus that llie:>e men, after
finding if impossible to put General Glascock
down, arc attempting to seize his skirts, for the
purpose of elevating themselves, and putting
down bis old and faithful friends. It was thus,
that after failing to keep down General Jackson,
they hung about his skirts, till a favorable op
portunity presented, as they supposed, lor pul

similar opportunity for putting down Gen. Glas

These men have frequently represented the
Union Party as greatly deficient in talent, in

they should repair, for the discharge of their
congressional duties ! If, indeed, the Union men
of Georgia, are the dolts which the Nullifiers
have represented them; if they are as deficient
in political and moral worth as some have sup
posed; then they will be caught by the base
bribes, (political, I mean,) which have been
, held out; then will they be taken by the clum

possess the sound sense and substantial worth
which 1 believe they do; then will the arts and
efforts of their adversaries be met with a mark

We publish to-day Gen. Jesup’s Order
No. 83, by which it will be seen that the
volunteers yet remaining in service, with
the exception of Maj. Nelson’s battalion,
in the Cherokee district, and Capt. Hentz’s
company of Baker county, will be forthwith
mustered and discharged.
Thus terminates thiscruel and murder
ous insurrection of the aborigines of the
country against the lives of the whites and
the laws and order of civilized society,
sweeping in its dreadful consummation men,
women and children, —hoarv age and help
less youth,—in one promiscuous slaughter.
The murderous hordes have all either been
dispersed, and afterwards sent off to Arkan
sas, slain by the hand of the white man, or
driven to their fellows in crime on the Flo
rida Peninsula. The halcyon wings of
peace again pervades tbe country, and the
settlers who have not suffered by the mur
derous tomahawk or rifle have again return
ed to their homes and firesides. To tbe
volunteers of Georgia, Alabama and Ten
nessee who so promptly obeyed the calls of
their country and suli’ering humanity, much
praise is due. Where all have done their
duty, distinctions would beinvidious. There
is one, however, who, from his situation, has
thrown around himself a moral grandeur of
which we know not how to speak in just
praise. We allude to Gen. John AV. A.
Sanford. We had seen Gen. S. in other
situations of high trust and responsibility,
but never before did we see his commanding
talents shine forth with so much lustre.
Whether at his quarters in the city, or with
his fellow soldier in the tented field, he was
always the nan, the gentleman and the of
ficer. In his capacity as commander-in-
Chief of the Georgia troops, his official du
ties were punctiliously discharged. Tow
ards bis command, he was the father, broth
er and friend; seeing to their wants, attend
ing to their comforts, visiting and cheering
the sick, encouraging the dutiful and re
claiming the refractory. Georgia owes
Gen. Sanford much lor the able and faith
ful discharge of his high and responsible
duties, but still more for his prudent and ex
cellent management of the variety of men
and character submitted to his command.
The citizens of Columbus were anxious
to afford Gen. Sanford some testimony of
the high approbation they felt for his con
duct and services by a public dinner, but he
left here for his family at Milledgeville by
the first stage after receiving his discharge,
and before a d< zen of his friends scarcely
were apprized of his intention. The best
wishes of his fellow citizens of Columbus
most cordially attends him.

The Major General commanding has the
satisfaction to announce to the Army the entire
cessation of hostilities and the movement west
ward of the principal part of the Creek Nation.
He congratulates'Uoth Officers and Soldiers on
the complete success which has attended their
operations throughout the campaign.
More than twenty five hundred hostile Indi
ans, among them upwards of seven hundred
warriors, were captured by the Alabama troops
and friendly Indians, all ofwhopi have been re
moved to Arkansas, or are in the custody of
the civil authorities, awaiting their trial for of
fences against the laws of Georgia and Alabama.
Several hundred Indians who escaped Echo,
Harjo’s camp in this neighborhood and attempt
ed to force their way to Florida, were attacked
in the most gallant manner by .the Georgia
troops, and with few exceptions were destroyed,
captured, or driven back to their swamps.
. The greater part of the Georgia and Alaba
i ma troops called -out for three months, have al
ready been discharged: those that remain in
service, with tbe exception of Major Nelson’s
] battailion and Captain llentz’companv ofGcor
i gia volunteers, will be mustered, honorably dis- j
, charged and paid, as soon as arrangements for
that purpose can be made.

dier General Moore, with the officers of
j their respective staffs of Alabama, are here
by honorably discharged— In Separating offi
cially from those Gentlemen and the officers
and troops that composed their commands, the

feelings were he to omit the expression of the
high sense which he entertains of their good
conduct, A soldierly deportment. They have his
entire approbation and deserve that of their

H. D, M’lntosh, Esq., Henry County, Ga,
Dear Sir;— 4 am this morning in receipt of
your favour of the 18th instant, requesting to
have some of the Balm sent out to your Slate as
soon as possible. Such is the pressing demand
ill every section, that 1 have, as yet, not been
able to supply the orders that have been suiuo
time on hand. J have had an order from Au
gusta, Georgia, and Savannah, since last win
ter, and only last week sent one gioce to each
i place. Dr. E. R. Calhoun, of South Carolina,
I lias contracted for that State and Georgia, and
j 1 have shipped to him near five thousand bot
! ties, all that 1 could spare. As soon as 1 can, I
j will send bint more; but when, 1 cannot say, *s
II must divide it as well as 1 can, until 1 can sup-
I ply each State fully. 1 willdomyself the pleas-
I ure of requesting Dr. Calhoun to establish an
) gency at your office as soon as other engage
j ments will allow. I have been putting up near
ly t-vo thousand per day, and now find myself
j in want of about fifty thousand for immediate
i use, and have not fifteen bottles, hut what are
j packed up for shipment. From the present de-
I maud, 1 should not be surprised, if it were lu
take five hundred thousand bottles a year to sup*
) ]>ly the demand,
Yours respectfully, &.c.

Dear Sir;— We suppose you like good Lews,
particularly when you are mostly interested.
We have but two bottles left of the box of,Balm
you sent u.s, You cap draw at sight for $ ,
which we believe will be t|;e amount, after de
ducting commission and expenses We will
thank you to send to our friends, Messrs. • • ♦,
j of Richmond, by first a double box,
] which you will put at your wholesale price, for
i which you can also draw on us. It has failed
in two instances in this neighborhood, but one of
the persons that we have seen, thinks it was
(with him) rheumatism, as he had the tooth
drawn, and the pain still continued.
Several persons have used it, with defective
gums, or scurvy, and are so much dclightedkwith
I it, that we are charged to keep a supply. ’Till,
i ladies arc using it with the tooth-bnuji, and say
| that it is the best thing for the teeth and gums
they have ever used, \\ e are glad, for the sako
ot ti e sufferers, as well as on your account
that this remedy is not only not of Northern or
igin, (from whence till the patent nostrums
come,) but is a S irginia preparation, and by a
\ irginian. Nor does it detract from its efficacy,,
! on account of thp place of its preparation, (P«-
) tersburg.) once styled by Mr. Jeflerson, Iha
j “cockade of America,” It seems to us, that
; all you now have to do, is to see to it, that you
keep a supply sufficient for the demand— for if
it sells elsewhere it has done here, there will
be no end to the demand. Several merchant*
of my acquaintance, mean to send for a hax.
Allow us to congratulate you, and the pnblif,
at the discovery and use of the only remedy (ex

We had tried till the remedies which were jij

tooth, but broke it oflj 1 caused the Balm to
be used after warming it in a cup—this was re
peated with a second spoonful, when she ;vu
entiiely relieved. The next night she came for
I more, saying that a tooth on the other side
ached, and also tequested some for her husband
who, she said, h id been suffering with the same
disease for some weeks, 1 cheerfully gave it,
and the next dty on inquiry found that both were
relieved, One of my neighbors of high respec
tability sent to me for some for his wife. I
have this day sacn him, and he assures tha
it afforded immediate relief, and there Jtas becßt
no return; before, she suffered almost constant.
ly s and could not 1 ear to let cold water toticit
the tooth, ami for two nights previous to tl)e
application, she had not been able to sleep
scarcely at till. Now she has no inconvenienca
from cold water or any thing else that conies in
contact with the tooth. The night before Ijist,
lie used some with one of his own men, with tha
same success, and says if he could have had this
remedy fifteen years ago., and known its effica
cy, he would willingly have given a hundred dol
lars for it. 1 have written in haste, giving a
plain statement of facts.
