THE passage of the Teeth through tin
gums produces troublesome and dan
gerous symptoms. It is known by modi
ers that there is great irritation in tht
mouth and minis during this process. The
gums swell, the secretion of saiiva is in
creased, the child is seized with frequent
and sudden fits of crying, watchings, start
iug in the sleep, and spasms of peculiai
parts, the child shrieks with extreme vio
lence, and thrusts its lingers into its mouth
If these precursory symptoms are not spee
dily alleviated, spasmodic convulsions uni

,d National Bank,S,'C.
We have said tint tiie Harrison pirty
aro in favor of a National Hank; and
this is denied also; but with wh it proprie
ty l"t the.se facts answer.
Fact I. The Iltrrison candidate for
Gov-rnirof N. C , is now openly in favor
of a Hmk. Th, Central Committee of that
partv an? all believed lo be in favor of it.
The subordinate afrits in our State of the
cenlrd Executive Committee" i.t Wash
ing'on, as far as thy have boon ascertain
ed, are advocates for a National 13 ink, and
d I"" all the leading presses of their par v;
and if General Harrison himself be op
posed to it, he does not venture to let it be
Fact 2. This party have heretofore sup
ported the United States Hank, and have
no wh' re pledged ili;iii sdves as a party,
to pursue a different course luroTter.
Fact 3. They hue nominated General
Harrison as their candidate, and Mr
CLAY, who openly proposed from the
Senate Hall, the creation of a Fifty Mil
liun Hank, has 'cheerfully''' surrendered
his own pretensions to the presidency and
"Goes for llarr sonV l)o,-s he think
the parly is against a Hank, such as lie ha
pronounced indispensable to the nation.-,
Fact 4. MR. WEHSTER, another
of the opp,s tion favorites, resigned his
pretensions to their support, in onl-.r
lo produce harmony in the Harrison
Darin. Does aiv one doubt about his on-
ia:ou,? Ny(11 il be summed that he
too has sacrificed to party expediency that
iiwCoj-ry Regulator of Ihc Currrcncy
which he has said the constitution alike
permits and requires Congress to estab
lish in some form?
Fact 5. At no public Convention or
other meeting of the Harrison party in No.
Carolina certainly, and so fir as we have
heard at none in any other State, have the
Opposition resolved that a National Hank
is either unconstitutional or inexpedient.
II, therelore, they are against a Hank, this
; ''- u oi ineir opinions is unac

try, ieci on oy the old United Stat: s Uank,
jmude the measures of our government a
pretext for H ink oppression and an exejio
'or ank d.shonesiy, and have cried out
tor another National Rank as the only
medicine Jur our disease; and the opposi
tion or Harrison party, havo generally
concurred in their censures and co-operate
in every ellort to give success to then
schemes; and it is therefore absurd in any
of them to pretend that they are not really
in fivor of ihe H.ink.
Fact 7. As a party, they never once
united in reproving the misconduct of the
united States Hank! Do what it mihi
the Hank was never wrong; or al all events,
its ac's were excusable. Rut their Gov
ernment was never right!
Instances of this are too recent to have
escaped the public mind; and, therefore
we do not repeat them. Yet there is one
of them so apposite to illustrate their pre
sent clamors, that it may not be amiss to
recur to i':
The Hank of the U- The Government

same public reve
Thi s is wronn!
From these Facts, and others like them,
we hav inferred that the Opposition party
are in favor of a National Battk, and that;
the Harrison party is in fact the Bank
parly; and when men of character and
sense hazard a denial of it, is it not calcula
ted to ex. ite some emotions of surptise.
Such a denial in the face of such facts, and
in contradiction lo wnat is daily occur
ring before the public eye, cannot com
mand our confidence. It is opposed to
common sene and common experience,
and this attempt al deception is in it-
sell enough to awaken public vigilance
The Ilairison party not in fa-.oi of a
National Hank! NVhat then is Gen. Har
rison for? They oppose the Independ
ent Treasury! They oppose the Stale
Bank system; and if they are also hostile
ti a National Bank, let them ''remove
ihe mask" and tell the people plainly what
thev are in favor of!
To those who regird a National Hank
n the means of strengthening their Hautv.
and on that account only are endeivuring
tire establish it, il is useless to address any
Impinge of reasonable remonstrance. Such
nen are partisans of the worst sort; pledged
to one ride country or no country and
blindly wedded to an Idol. Those reflect
ing and sober-minded men of all parties,
who have had no motives for it, and vet
on former occasions h ive inclined to a Na
ional Hank, will not refuse to listen to a
few calm considerations which it seems to
us ought now to decide this quest ion final-
To yo'i, then fellow-citizens, we address
the inquiry: Why was it that any of
vou supported a re-charter of the old Hank
in 1832? Was it not b'-caus;; you were ig
norant of its concealed misdeeds wdiich af
ter wards disclosed, and because you
'bought the CHANGE would break up
t e current of business, and produce confu
sion and a distress for money? Is r
The majority have decided the other woy.
The voice of the People, and the lawful au
thority of the government, have put down
the National Hank; there has been a factious
resist a nce,eversince,ngai nst establishingant
substitute for its agency in the government;
that resistance is now overcome, and the
Independent Treasury will soon be in op
eration. Tins delay Ins been injurioiih
to business, because it kept things unset
tled; that cause being removed, and
every one becoming satisfied about
what is to he the policy of the country,
there will be not much difficulty hereafter.
Now opply lo this state of things those
principles of action upon which heretofore
you inclined lo a Hank, & see if it is wise or
prtr'"!t to reverse I he posit ion of the conn
try feliall we be always doing nnd undo
ing Is nothing to be settled? If it create
derangement in business and pressure
to pass from Bank to Independent Trea
sury, must not ihe same consequences fol
low in pissing back from Independent
Treasury to Bank? Should this be done
now Shall the nation be distracted three
years by the discussion of a public measure,
and a;, soon as it is passed, and before il.ere
has been any time afforded to test, by ex
perience the excellencies of ihe new sys
tem, shall the people be desired to repudi
ate it? Judge for yourselves.
A;;ain: A National bank might be made,
and in some respects it was a convenient
agent of the Government; still every body
knows that it is also capable of becoming a
TREMENDOUS EVIL. It is said by
some to be a necessary evil; but if the Inde
pendent Treasury should answer the valua
ble and desirable ends its patriotic friends
have believed it will do, surely no patriot is
so sold loaNaional BankAhaX. he isnnwil
j ling to see his country beneiitted in any oth
jer way ! All that the Administration asks is
(that the Independent Treasury may have a
iFAlli Chance. It is not possioie for it
to do any mischief; for in ability to do evil
it is to the United States Hank as a babe to
a Giant! We iemember that many of
you supported the United States Hank, and
noi a few do so yet, because they think it
will control all our local Banks; and
when it is insisted that this may be
done by the Independent Treasury and.
the laws, the reply has been that the Gov
ernment is powerkss .to do it without a
National Bank! Now what is this but
aconsession that the. Bank is more potent
than the people's Government? Is it safe
to re-establish any power in our country
that is stronger than its creator? Is it wise
in us to do it until, after a fair trial the In
dependent Treasury has failed to answer
a good purpose? Is it not certain that the
creation of a National Bank by the strength
of a party, will at once put that party in
fo pot, er under Bank auspices, and that
a Puty-Hank and Bank-Party will be ce
mented into dangerous union; corrupt
each other and the Government, and great
ly oppress the people!
Again: Is there a farmer a mechanic
a republican a Freeman indeed, of any
class, who would give his assent to the cre
ation of a PERPETUAL Bank of the U
nitcd States? Yet it is undeniable that a
Hank established upon the ground of in
dispensuble necessity, will be perpetual.
Fcr if the necessity for it exists now, so
must it exi-t in future. If its discontinuance
now has been oppressive, it will hereafter
be ruinous. If it can extort a charter
now, when the Administration is opposed
to it, and if the people were to turn out
their Democratic rulers to put in a Bank
Administration, the Bank may here
after prescribe its own terms and nomi
nate at pleasure the rulers oi a t ree reople.
The Concealment of the Opposition.

jealousies unworthy of honest freemen,

which are attempted to be practised to -

Fellow-citizens : On the subject of
these laws to sell white men and Women
for fines and cos5 you will suffer us to
draw your attention to a few of the men
tions results which might follow; and we
point them out to yr u as a foretas'e of what
we may look for when aris'ocrats shall
turn demagogues, and fo-ce all their "-Log
Cabin and hard cider'' measures upon
the free Men and WOMEN of this na
tion. Two nirn are indicted for fighting. Each
one is fit ed fifty dollars. The one is able
to pay it, and the other is not, and
hi reforc he is '-imprisoned for the fine,"
and the Sheriff may sell the latier to a
44m.-.ster." He that is poor has to be so'd.
He that is richer dots not. Now is he
sold for his ckime or sold for his poverty?
For the crime both are fined. Hut the
poor nan is so Id because he car not pay.
He is sold for the "non pay7?ient of the
fine, 'C," and not for ihi-fight!
Take it, however, ss Gen. Harrison's
advocates would have it to be: Suppose
it be true that lie is sold for his offence
against the laws. Does it mend the mat
ter? Two men fight the one who is aide
to pay is fined for fighling, ihe other who
is poor is put in prison nnd sold for
the very same offence!! Is this any better?
But it has been said that the Ohio law
was a ithnma?ie" !! substitute for whip
ping. Gen. Hani on intimated this as a
part of his defence for that odious vote.
And what becomes of the 44 l.umsnit) " in
