THE passage of the Teeth through ilie gums produces ti ouhlesntne ant! dan gerous symptoms. It is Km vn ! y moih ers that there is great iniiaiiou m th--; mouth and gums during this proofs. The i gums swell, the serration of saliva is in .creased, the child is eized with (Yt-q ioni - and sudden fits of crying, wntrliim:, t art !ingin the sleep, and spasms of pecnii n parts, the child shrieks with extreme vio lence, and thrusts its fingers into its month If these precursory symptoms are not spee dily alleviated, spasmodic convulsions uni versally supervene, and soon rans the dissolution of the infant. If mothers who Inve their little babes a (flirted with thee ;diMiess'm: symptoms, would aprdy lr William Kvans's Celebrated Soothing Syrup, which has preserved hundred-; of infants when thought past recovery, from being suddenly attacked with that fatal malady, convulsions. This infallible remedy has preserved hundreds of Children, when thought pa-i recovery, from convulsions. As soon ns ' ! the Syrup is rubbed on the irums, the chil l will recover. This preparation is so in : noceut. so efficacious, and so pleasant, that .'no child will refuse to let its gums be t rubbed with it. When infants are at the ajje nf four in uih, though there is no ap-Ip-aiauce of teeth, one bottle of the Srup should be used on thp gums, to open the pores. Parents should never be -without t lie Svi'ip in the nursery where there are vounir children; for if a child I wakes in the night with pain in the gums, J the Syrup imutediaiely gives ease by open iog the pores and healing the gums; there j by preventing Convulsions, Fevers. See. I To the Agent of Dr. Evans' Soothing Svrup: Dear Sir The great benefit f afforded to my suffering infant by our "Soothing Syrup, in ?i case of protracted and painful dentition, must convince every " feelintr parent how essential an early np plication of such an invaluable medicine is to relieve infant misery and torture. .Mv infant, while teething, experienced such acute sufferings, that it was attacked with convulsions, and my wife and family sup posed that death would soon release the babe from anguish till we procured a bot tle of your Syrup; which as soon as ap fplied to the gums a wonderful change was J produced, and after a few applications the 5 child displayed obvious relief, and by con ftiuuiug in its use. I am glad to inform die child has completely recovered, 'and no recurrence of that awful complaint has since occurred; the teeth are emana ting daily ami the child enjoys perfect .health. I give you my cheerful permission to make this acknow ledgment public, ami dl gladly give any information on this circumstance. When children begin to be in pain with their teeth, shooting in their gums, put a I litile of the Syrup in a tea-spoon, and wun uie linger let the child's gums be rubbed for iVO or three minutes, three I'mes a. day. U mast not be put lo the broasl immediately, for lne milk would take the syrup off too soon. When the teeth are just coming through their gums, mothers should immediately apply the sy rf; it will prevent the children having a fever, and undergoing that painful opera t'oa of lancing the gums, which always makes the tooth much harder to come ' trough, and sometimes causes death. , Beware of Counterfeits. , Caution: Be particular in pureha 8'n$ to obtain it at 100 Chatham St., f New York, or from the REGULAR AGENTS.

I fjund o i mv arrival hero o i the 2nd inst. vour note of the 10th nil. covering a r-2snlut;on of the same date, .t a meeting at West Point, requesting my opinion on the It a ling topics of tin; day t i l also, on the course, whkdi, as Southern Sa!e llights men, tbev ought to take Hi I he pending Presidential election. Co ning, as th-; request does, from per son 1 1 and political friends, desito'is of get ting all the light tbcv can. to g'lide their ja-;i Ciiirse, and who think with them, at I his important crisis of our affdr, I do not feel myelf at lib-jity to wilhobi .ui answer. I infer, from the rcsoluiion, that ihe ob ject of your request is, not to asecriain mv views on ihe general merits of the qnes 'i on lo whic'i ihe resolution refe:s, atul on which 1 have, on several occasions, fully expressed myself in my place in the Sen ate, but o:i tlieir bearing on the principle. and the policy of the Mate Rights parly. Tim's rvgirdcd, 1 know not how I cao bi-tter comply with your request than b enclosing, as tny answer to this portion the resolution, my reply to the icqi-e-t of the Republican piriy of the city of New York, to address them'on the lale anniver sary of Independence, in which I have sta ted my views of ihe true issue involved in the present crisis, and the highly favorable oppoituuity it all'mlf, lo the complete les toration and the permanent ascendancy of the old Republican Slate Rights creed oi 179s The views taken in my reply will, 1 trust, not onlyr prove a satisfaciory answer to your leading request, but go far lo answer the other, asking my opinion as ' to which of the candidates of the Pi t sidency has the best claim to the sup port of the Southern State Rights men;" ti tat is, as 1 understand it, by the election of which would they have the best prospect for the success of their principles and policv. The question supposes that the nature of ihe contest does not admit of neutrality, as experience shows it does not, and that the State Rights party, in support of their own doctrines, ate forced to !?ke sides, having no other option but to choose. r'oiceti, as tl.ey are, to take sides, I do not see, I must .-ay, how they can rationally doubt, if governed by a regard lo the suc cess of their doctrines and the interest ami safety of the South; and, let me add, of our political in.-titutions and ihe Union. I hold the party supporting the re-election of Mr. Van Huron, and him through them; as well as bis oft repeated declar ations, to be especially pledged, in iht most solemn manner, by ihe fialtimore Convention, winch nominated him, to the principles and policy w hich State Rights men h ive ever held lo be their true and oithodox creed. Thai on ard others may judge for your.-elves, I insert the resolu tions adopted by ihe Convention, unanim ously, and would ask all, who profess the State Rights creed, and regard the pros perity and safely of the South, if more could be asked: "1 Resolved, That the Federal Gov nerment is one of limited powers, and de rived solely from the Constitution; and the grams of powei shown therein ought to be strictly considered by all the depart ments and agents of the Government, and that il is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise doubt'ul constiiitionas powers. '2 Resolved, Thai the Constitution does not confer upon the General Govern- ment the power to commence and carry on a general system of internal improve- ments. "3 Resolved, That the Constitution does not confer authority upon the Feder al Government, directly or indirectly, to assume the debts of the several States, contracted for local internal improvements or other Slate purposes; nor would such assumption bejust or expedient. 4. Resolved, That justice and sound policy forbid the Federal Government to foster one branch of industry to the detri ment of another, or to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another por tion of our common country; that every citizen and every section of the country has a right to demand and insist upon an equality of rights and privileges and a complete and ample protection of persons and property from domestic violence or fr fDl irn nirn-poccinn "5 ResolvedThat it is the duty of every branch of the Government to cn . I force and practice the most rigid economy, I in conducting our" public affilts, and that no more revenue ought to ba raised ihm is require 1 to defray the necessary expen ses of thr Government. 4CG. Resolved, Tint Congress has no pow-ir to charter a National Bank; that we b lieve such an In-titulion one of dead ly hostility lo the b st interests of the country, dangerous to our republic m institutions and the liberties of ihe coun 'ry,within the control of a onceivrated monev power: and above the laws and will of the people. '7. Resolved, That Congress has no .1 . n - . . . 1 . . f power, unuer me LOnsinuuon, to interior. with or control the domeslic institutions of the sev.'rtl Stales, and that such States re the sole and proper judges of every hing appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by the Constitution; and that all efforts of the Abolitionists or others, made to induce Congresi to interfere with the question of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to to the most alarming and d mgerous consequences, and that all such e!T)rts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the !i ippiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, m l ought not lo be countenanced by any friend to our political institutions. "!. Kesolveu, I hat ihe separation ol the moneys of the Government from bank ing institutions, is indispensable to the safely of the (und of the Government and ihe rights of she people. U. Resolved, That the liberal princi ples embodied by Jefferson in the Declar ation of Independence, and sanctioned in Ihe Constitution, which make ours the land of liberty and theasylum of the op pressed of every nation, hive ever been cardinal principles in the Democratic faith; and every attempt to abridge the present privilege of becoming citizens & the ow ners of soil among us, ought to be resisted with the same spirit which swept the alien ami sedition laws from our statute book." If we turn to the other side, we shall find on this important point a striking con trast. The Harrisburg Convention, which nominated Gen. Harrison, pul forth no political creed and pledged themselves lo nothing, but his support, and I hazard nothing in asserting that not one of the resolutions unanimously adopted at Bal timore, nor any similar ones, could receive I will not say the votes of a majority, but even of a respectable minority. There were no doubt individual members, who sincerely professed the State Rights creed, but they were few and represented few. The great mass were opposed to the doc trines of ihe State Rights piriy, and the interests of the South, on the larifJF, the federal character of the Government, abolition, the extent of appropriating a money power, and a Bank of the United States; so much so, that, it is well known, the nomination of the General was made instead of a distinguished competitor, in deference to a portion of the Convention deadly hostile to the South, on the most vital of all ihcse questions. But, it has been said that pledges before an electioii. are of little v.due, and that there is no assurance that ihose given by the Baltimore Convention will be redeem ed, should their nominee succeed. I ad mit that confidence in politics ought to be yielded with caution, and am compelled to say, my experience in life has not added to my confidence in the professious of pub lic men. But, if no confidence could be given to those who profess our principles, and pledge themselves to their support, how can confidence be given to those who openly tleny them, and tell us so before hand?" Ought the want of confidence o be carried so far as to join open enemies, to put down those who solicit and seek our aid in supporting our principles and doc trines? Should they betray us, by going over, after they reach power through our aid, to the tariff, abolition, national bank, consolidation, and the utmost stretch ol unconstitutional expenditures, would we, would ihe South, be in a worse condition than if we join the other side, the great body of which consists of the supporters of those measures, and raise them by our assistance to power? On the contrary, will not our situation be greatly beltei? If those who have pledged themselves to our principles and policy should betray us, we could, wilh consistency, honor and effect, oppose them for their betrayal; but wilh what consistency or hope of success could we turn round and resist those whom we had raised to power, when we knew beforehand the course they would take? But, put this difficulty and all con fidence aside, and suppose both to be gov erned exclusively by the love of office and party considerations, an important question still remains to be answered; irom which of the two parties thus regard ed could the State Rights party most cer tainly calculate to receive assistance, in carrying out their principles mm poucy judging exclusively by the interest and r . 1 t ...s nirlipv IT l rlrt not mic. .rpnim nf the two Darties? If 1 do not mts take, the course they ought to take is as the subject as I admit, as a maxim, of the trn'h of which we hav- but too much proof from experience, that if you give to cither, cr I leir any pattv, a;i overflowing treiury wi:h a widely ex ended p:tr mag , which is sure Jo acco np my it, the (filet will be that it will telv, to maintain itself in pow er, on ihe infl lence and ptronag ol the Govern no il, fcn ! not on its wisdom and pa'rioMsm and adherence to principles; or, in short, it will become a spoils party It is only where there is a reduce I treas ury and limited patronage, th il the tru genius of the parlies dicloses i'self. At -uHi perio Is, the popular or democrat" party, is forced to fdl back to save it-e!f. on the great popular principles on which our system rests, and from which the par ty derives its origin; and, let rr.e add, to whic'i ihe Republican party owes its orig inal ascendancy, and by which alone ii can, for any reasonable length of time continue itself in power, r.gonst tne supe- liorwea'th an I infl lence of their op po j ncnts. Not so wiib them. It is jusl at sucn penotis, when their relative strength is the greatest, and their opponents, the . le ist, setting the'r principles aside, thai lhy make ti c gieatest t Tor's to carry their favorite rnca ures arid policy; just as we. now witness it. It is, then, jest a' such periods, like the present, when the treasury is embarrassed and the palionage ol the Government is most contracted, Miat. eneh pat-v win prove true to its own . . principle?; and when, if ever, the State? Right paity may calculate with the great est certainty on the co-operation of the one in restoimg their principles and policy, and ihe opposition of the oilier against the restoration, and in favor of iheir old cherished measures and policy. Thus thinking I regard the present re markable juncture the most propitious that lias ever occurred for a thorough re lorm ol the Government and restoration of the Constitution to what its framers in tended it should be; but, at thesjme time, ihe most dangerous that can be conceived, if not promptly and energetically turned to a proper account. Ilhas brought to a point the long struggle between Stale Rights and consolidation the school of Jt Hoi son and the school of Hamilton when one or the other must permanently prevail. It is, indeed, a death struggle between thetwo hostile systems, in which liie whole Union, but more especially we of the South, have the deepest stake. If, at such a crisis, when all is at slake, we, forgetful of the past and unmindful of the future, should lurn against our old and natural allies, in the other sections, and give the victory to our old opponents long will we ami our descendants rue the fatal error. But if we stand firm and de feat should follow t e fuss onset, the loss may be retrieved. The South would form a ralh insr point; around which the shdtered forces elsewhere might rally, and recover ihe dav, but, il we now, at ihis critical juncture, refuse to sustain our own principles and policy, on which our selves and posterity so clearly depend, and join our old opponents to put ilown our old allie s, who have pledged them selves to stand by us, all confidence in the south would be lost, and the victory, achieved by our desertion of our own principles and policy, would be final and complete. With great respect, I am, &c. J. C. CALHOUN. Messrs. J. E. Scott, and others, Com miltee. OPINION OF WM. H. CRAWFORD. The Democracy of the United States have been accustomed to place great conh dence in the correctness of the principles and in ihe sagacity of the judgment of the individual whose name heads this ar tide. In the better days of the country in those days when the people were so licitous of acquiring correct information wilh regard to the principles and qualifi cations of aspirants for office the fol lowing extract of a letter written by Mr. Craw-lord, from Paris, in May, 1S14, would have had some weight in fixing the character of General Harrison's merits: "I feel great solicitude in relation to the further prosecution of the war. Where are the Generals who are to meet the able and experienced commanders who have distinguished themselves in the peninsula for the last six years ? Is it Wilkinson? Is it Harrison? "I have heard with surprise and much pain that Harrison has been appointed Lieutenant General of the army. 1 have examined with attention all his letters and official statements which he has written since he entered the army, and I confess that every thing which has fallen from his pen savor3 ol ihe law demagogue ra ther than the patriotic, enlightened and skilful General. clear uod r this aspect of any of 'he preci ding. . . . . .t- r itiv.- iU innrVipnsion of the hov thrmiwli "It has anneared to me, uiai iroiu menu' . w....w..- - - ---- moment he entered the army, he placed . i .i-- U 1 .J his hopes of promotion upon the influence of he western people, and not upon hi ita'en s, or the military services which be had render d, or expected to render.

The Globe contains the follow- inii: "Wo nre happy to learn, by advice froTi Valparaiso, that o"r Charge d' Af f iirs has succeeded in obtaining from the whil::in Government indemnity for the seizures of American properly by Lord Cochrane, when in the service of that powr; and that, there is a reasonable pres pect of an early liquidation of the nther American claims. This is another proof th it the eye and hearm of a Republican Administration nre ever)' where extended and exerted for the protection or vindica tion of American rights." English Gold in Ihe field. From 1835 to 1S3S, three years the enormous sum of one hundred & eighty millions of debt was contracted in Europe, to carry on works of internal improvement by the states. The whole indebtedness of the States to Europeans is over two hundred millions of dollars Il has recently been disclosed that British gold is sent out here like a Jlood to operate on our elec tions, well knowing that if ihe federal parly get into power, the U. States Gov ernment will assume these State debts. British Gold is at icork among us, and no mistake. Old Dom. The. U. S. Bank. The Philadelphia Commercial Herald of Saturday says: MThere was s genera! metiing of delegaies from the different Banks of the city and county of Philadelphia on Thursday even iug'lust at the Board of Trade. Delegates were present from 12 oi.t of 14 banks the Girard and Southwark not being repre sented. The object was to take con sideration the application of the U. S. Bmk, to enable that institution to resume on the 15th January next. A resolution was offered and adopted, recommending a loan to the Bank, to the amount of six mil lions of dollars, to be taken by the various Banks, in proportion to their means, sev eral Banks voted in the affirmative two (North America and Farmers and Mecha nics) in the negative three declined vo ting, not having received instructions, and two not represented. ' We learn that some of the Banks voting in the affirma tive, have to day rescinded the votes of their delegates, which places the subject in its former position, and it is probable tiiat nothing definite will be had until after the election. It is S lid that Mr. Jaudon's connection with the U. S. Bank will soon terminate, and also that Mr. Dunlap will retire from die Presidency in January. For the lat ter rumor, we learn there is no foundation. Lemuel Lamb, E.-q for many eais past President of the Mechanics' Bank, has resigned that station, with a view, it is said, of entering into commercial pur suits. From the Globe. Premium on Specie.
