When children begin to be in pain with their teeth, shooting in their gums, put a little of the Syrup in a tea-spoon, and with the finger let the child's gums be rubbed for two or three minutes, three times a day. It must not be put to the breast immediately, for the milk would take the syrup off too soon. When the teeth are just coming through their gums, mothers should immediately apply the sy rup; it will prevent the children having u fever, and undergoing that painful opera tion of lancing the gums, which alw ays makes the tooth much harder to cotne through, and sometimes causes death.

Mr. BYNUM. said he rose to reply .to the remarks of the gentleman from Maryland, Mr. Jenifer, although he was sorry that he could nol boa- dislineil v what that genlleman hid said, lie undeis'od him, however, to complain of something that had been published in the Globe in relation to what he (Mr. 15.) had said some days since. He bail not been able to understand what censure that gentleman had passed on him, if iiny. He would state, though, for his satisfaction and all oihers, lhat the Globe contained what he had ut tered on tbe floor at the time alluded to by that gentleman, lo the best of his recollection The language was hi, and for il he held himself responsible in that House or out of it. The only explanation that be felt a disposition to make to the House was this: On the occasion alluded to, he had been attacked by tiiree or four gentlemen by the gentleman himself Mr. Jenifer and his colleague Mr. Johnson a gentleman from New York, Mr. Hoffman, and a member from North Carolina. He. however was not disposed to notice what, as he then thought, was the most illiberal manner, in which, by the want of courtesy, he was prevented from a reply, in vindica tion of himself and the remarks he had used on that occasion, to the attacks of those gentlemen, in which he thought he had hincethe Tin thy ot June, ls.Th, (a daylu (I mo nave a u.erator poii.icai construe- sctVH.s which that nv-mht v no doubt w II riooroji- !

At the time hp. .made the rem irks, he did not know whether that gon'Iem i!i Mr. Jenifer was in UU seat or not. The gentleman thought fit, however, to open the attack upon him, anil was then followed up by his colleague end others; although the gentleman had said he. had lam down a ptrttcular rule, for himselt to pursue, since the memorable 7th of Juno, jlia corneal last, and we find the statement 1836, and that course was to have nothing j 0f ihe whig worth just an much as all to do with me, and, to avoid me in debate, their facts there is no truth in them Sir, such w is the identical course that I Jet us n,nv iCir vvia, he said by puff had liid clown for myself to pursue to-.e:s of the-warlikc Stanly and the chivalrous wards that gentleman, and saver d others 'Jenifer.

I take it lor granted tint it is dis honorable, after two gentlemen have had a difference, that has been confessedly set tled honorably to both parties, and stand upon peculiar terms, to embrace any pub lic occasion to renew their difficult ie, by band ing personal epithets. Sir, that h iN not been my course heiior elsewhere, as I do not conceive that that belongs to an ho torablu man and a gentleman. The w rd bu'y, that I iied, if it be that the gentleman complains of, I used to de ote one that would play the political bamnion of ibis House, such as we have i'requently witnessed in it for several year pist.

Mr. S TANLY was then understood to 1 proceed as druigh unsatisfied. The SPEAKEIl here interposed to put a s'op to the discussion, which he said was of such a nature as could not be permitted to go on; and that the gentleman from Maryland Mr. Jenifer had merely risen, as he unders'ood him, to make some cor rection of a matter which personally inter ested .him. Mr. STANLY was again understood lo sav that reference had been made to him by his colleague, Mr. Bynum, in his reply to the gentleman from Maryland, which he conceived needed some .noiire He said it wis usual with him to cultivate with gentlemen the most friendly relations and paiticularly so with persons from the Shit" which he in part represented lhat he felt his heirt warmed to meet any such; but on bis arrival here he had cau tioned his friends and collogues not to in troduee him to his colleague, Mr. Bynum, for if they did he wo dd hold them person ally responsible. He made some further remarks nol heard sufficiently distinct to be understood. Mr. BYNUM said that this place was nol the proper one to settle thesrj private matters. If the member would but go to the Rotunda, he would satisfy him. To which Mr. S. made no reply, but saitl something as he sat down, about Mr. B. begging his life which was not understood.

Yours with great respect, J. A. BYNUM. Correspondence of the Philadelphia Spi rit of the Times. Washington, Jan. 4, IS-iO. The public cu-eer cf the Hon. Jesse A. Bynum, cf N. C, who his been made to figure so conspicuously in the proceed ings of the House for the past few days, has been too prominent to escape Ihe notice of a common observer; and as I have at all times found it necessary to my profession to watch his conduct minutely, 1 believe that 1 fully understand the man. His book is daily opened by himself, and those who do not or cannot read it need not compdn that they had no metns of be coming acquainted with his character. Mr. Bynum commenced his po'itical career amid the highest state of political excitement. He entered Congress a warm, ihough violent partisan if you phase the advocate and the feariess defender of the Administration of Gen. Jackson. All who recollect with what ardor and abr.se the prtv then, as now, in the opposition as sailed ihe Administration, may very viv idly perceive how easy it was for. a man of an ardent temperament to get into collision with the unprincipled faction then strug gling to destroy the last hope of freedom the last bulwark of human liberty. . Mr. Bynum had not been in h'i3seat many months or indeed weeks, before he was most maliciously and vilely assailed by members of the House, and by some of the leading Opposition presses, who did not know or understand the character of the man. They soon found, however, he was not to be assailed or traduced with im punity. . J hose who were ot a contrary opinion, however, soon had an opportunity t -,r co.ua in.i f -1 ;.-,., n f,,.- a,. iiSDo.utton. which has cammed of personally correcting the error into widt h they had incautiously run. From the year 1834 up to this date, for reasons for which I cannot account, a clique lias been organized and kept up, the object of which appears to have been to make a concentrated war upon Mr. Bynum; to do things in a body, which no single man would deem it proper or safe to do in his individual capacity. Mr Bynum hasr borne, hut with a very i'.l-grace the repeated tt:tcks that havo been made on Lin-;: and iti more instances than one, they induced him to invite his assailants to single combat. The public. is well acquainted with the history of thoso instances, and the less that ia said about them the butter will it be for the cause of public morals. They were all i:i direct opposition to the Li as of the land, lo real charity, nnd ought t" he forgotten. In 'debate, if he be severe in deitiinciation of the schemes of party, and lie ruirdy is so, he is always personally eo.irteous towards Ins onnonents. and avoids jthe uUerance of any thing that cmi offend the feelings of high-minded and courteously disposed gentlemen. Within the Inst" two years, it appears lo have been the policy of the opposition to destroy Mr. Bynum, by the adoption of a policy which, is as disreputable as it is un- msniy. itr. nynum is assailed wnn mo most v;0jGnt lcuroach and direct abuse: j ity Yor vou cannot be recognised by mo as a o.nt!eman. To bring this le tter to a close, I should say in all sincerity, that the scene nrcsentcd to j Uopgresi ye?terd?.y, was eminently dis- graceiu: to that pony; ana mat it cnen repealed, Congress will soon become a by word and a. reproach to the nation. (3 Mr. Calhoun has addressed a loltef to the Charleston Mercury, noticing tho 1 reports whien nact appeared m ti.at paper ! about the Succession, Col. Benton, &c. Ha distinctly declares: "I ain no aspirant to the Presidency, or ever expact to be. lo hold me up as Euch is to do me great injus tice and weaken mc in rny elTbrt to carry out the principles and policy for which I he Calls the Succession,' and which he says is absorbing every thing elso, I know no thing. If thcy e:Jst, he does well in rep rescniifg me as passive as to what is going on All who know me know that there is not a member of Congress who takes less interest in that to which he alludes."
