rfMIE passage of the Teeth through the

ers thai there is great irritation in the

gums swell, the secretion of saliva is in
creased, the child is seized with frequent

lence, aud thrusts its fingers into its month.
If these precursory symptoms are not spee
dily alleviated, spasmodic convulsions ui:i
v ersall y supervene, and soon cause the
dissolution of the infant. If mothers who
have their little babes afflicted uith these
digressing symptoms, would apply l)r

Syrup, which has preserved hundreds ol
infants when thought past recovery, from

.Kindreds of Children, when thought past
recovery, from convulsions. As soon as
the Syrup is rubbed on the gums, the child
will recover. This preparation is so in
nocent, so efficacious, and so pleasant, that
no child will refuse to let its gums be
rubbed with it. When infants are at the
niie of four months, though there is no ap
pearance of teeth, one bottle of the
Snip should be used on the gums, to
open the pores. Parents should never be

there are young children; for if a child

directed to the I5'.h cf January, hs41, and

obstacle to resumption. Every article on

inquiry is, whether it can resume? All

We learn that the Bank Committee

Philadelphia banks one million of dollars
on nine and eighteen months. A com-
mil tee of three from Philadelphia, in con-I
junction with a Boston committee, have
been here tor several days, and yesterday
morning completed the arrangements for
the loan. The Boston banks will increase
the loan to three millions and a half, which,
it is asserted, will be amply sufficient to
enable the Pensylvania institutions to fill
the requisition of the law in relation to the
resumption. The loan is made on post
notes bearing six percent, interest, ha
mounis, in fact, merely to an extension of
the debt due by the Philadelphia banks to
ours, and placing it on interest. We are
glad this affair is at last concluded, and that
another fair prospect exists, that before
many months all the sound banks through

sound ones have been put into liquida

Important Arrest. For" some time
past, the loss of slaves in this city has been
increasing in fi t quency, and many valu
able ones have been conveyed away by
some unknown agency. Zell and Ridgdv,
most active and vigilant officers, becoming
cognizant of this, determined to ascertain
the mode of escape, and terminate the
evil. They suspected it was effected
through a system of abJuction, earned on
by the agency of free blacks, and they
kept a .sharp look out at the railroad de
pots. On the morning of Sunday, 29ih of
Nov. Mr. Zell'was at the depot in Pratt
street, when a free negro named John Rob
inson, procured a ticket for Philadelphia.
Mr. Z. discovered something suspicious in
the fellow's manner, and resolved to keep
an eye on him. He got into the car appro
priated to the accommodation of negroes,
just when it was about to start, and Zell
took a place in front with the brakesman.

and while-dressing il for dinner, according
to the usual custom, divided the gizzud

out; and having a natural curiosity to as

The treachery of Mexicans on the late
occasion may prove a U5 ful lesson to the
IVxians. The perfidy of the race has bef n
shown in more than one instance towards
the Americans. Indeed they betr .y each

and il is not to be supposed that they
would suffer many s ruphs of conscience
in hi tracing thns' whom they have ever

rather on the increase than otherwise.
