standings and agitations in regard to sla
very in the territories, and in such arqni
sitons as might be from time made by
peaceful negotiation, or by wars in which
the perversity or infatuation of our neigh*
born might impel us. The late comproin
ise in this completely negatived the Mis
souri compromise, and reinstated the
South in the position and rights her peo
pie enjoyed before the latter was accept
ed, and without prejudice to her institu
tions. .This appears to us to have been
the opinion of Mr. Douglas when he
foamed the bill, and the opinion generally
. of the Soulhren press in commenting up
on it; but a different sentiment prevailed
at Washington among a good many who
still thought that the Missouri comprom
ise was in full fmce, and that iheAVdniot
-Proviso as its chiel provision exists in the
*rNebra-ka territory, and will continue un
til abrogated by law. To meet and dis
pose of such objections in future as well
as to leave no loop-hole tor disafFeoted ag
itators to crawl into or out of, Mr. Dixon,
of moved an amendment, the
adoption of which with the bill of Mr.
Douglas, will forever settle the proviso,
and release the territory from the interfer- j
ence of other TfiarT its own occupants in
the settlement of its institutions and the
organization of its government, and will
leave the people fiee to take th< ir slaves
to it or not as they, and they alone, may
choose or determine.
We hear of opposition to those saluta
ry measures, but with the administration
unquestionably sound upon the subject,
as v\e have every reason to believe it to
be, and good sense reason and justice in
the ascendant in Congress, we cannot be<
lieve possible than it should prove formi
dable or more than may be naturally ex

Mr. Editor, Sir —l notice in your’pa
f per an Advertisement headed Caution,
in which one Hiram Sellers says his wife
Elizabeth Sellers, hus left his Bed and
Board , and that he will not be hound for
her contiacts, &c. Now, Mr. Editor, the
said Hiram Setters lias published a pod-,
* live LIE, in the plainest terms, and it
can be proven by three living witnesses.
He says she left his bed and board ; I say |
it is a lie —he had no bed —and board, he
seldom furnished ; as to paying any debts
, of her contracting, he need not give him-
J self any uneasiness, no person will credit
him f<r a dime who knows him, let alone
any other person in his name. He left
her bed —and why ? because he would
not work to support her, but bought a
middling of meal from a negro, and the
negroe s master found the meat in his
use and he run away. Now he wants
.s wife to go to him, and because she de
clines living with a rogue, he wishes to
Jrighten her; but there is some pure, hon
est grit about her that will always control
The good principles ol a virtuous lady;
those principles, and an utter ahhorrance
of dishonesty will not let her go.
The only reason he could have for ad
— ■ rising her is, she declines further de
grading hersplf by following up a lazy,
roguish scamp , who will not provide (or
her. 1 consider the above due to my
much injured sister; —let him reply if he
wants to, and I will prove it for him.

The principles upon which it is claimed

exhausted nervous fluid which is required
to produce a healthy actiou through the en
