The Constitution of lite United States baa Tested Congraa with authority to prescribe a uniform standard of weights and measures for the whole Vnion. Congress has not exercised that power ; but the common leeling of I he people has supplied the delect of federal legislation. In all parts of Ibe U - nion, the use the same weights and measures. A pound U a pound, a bushel is a bushel, a yard i a yard, firnn ono end of the country to the other. The Cons notion bas also vesica vonpcn ...... - ty to regulate the value not ot currency, tot there is no such word in the Conititiitioo, nor any word which ran be made to include paper erre - ey but to reUte tho value of the com of our own mint, and also of foreign coin. This power fur forty - five years, that is to say, from 178!) to 1831, was so erroneously exercised as lo undervalue gold sic and two - thirdi per cent. The oonaeq.ienco was the total exclusion of gold from our circulation. In 1834 this e - ror was corrected ; and tho consequence is, that gold la in the full process of lextoration to its constitutional place in onr currency. With respect to foreign coins, instead of making Ihotn current, as the Constitution Intended, they were nearly all excluded from circulation by the act ot 1319. This false legislation was also corrected in 1334 ; and foreign coin now entered largely into our c rculaUon. The year 193 - 1 ibo second year ol General Jackson's second Presidcnlial terra will be an era, a proud and glorious era, in the history of our constitutional currency. It will be the era of the reformation of the metalLc currency. The year 1 836, the last year of General Jackson's second term, will be another clorious enoch in our financial histo ry. It waa in that year that the pronViasnry notes of a corporation ceased to be a lawtul lender to ine United Slates in discharge ol all taxes, debts, and duties duo to her. The year 1836 is the epoch of this deliverance ol the Federal Treasury from the donation of a corporation ; but the year 1332 divides the honor with it: for in that year waa the blow struck the heroic veto applied which effected the deliverance. Three noblo arts have been performed ; but a fourth remains to be achieved to consummate the duties of the Federal Government in relation to the currency. The error of Mr. Madison's adminisfra lion, at the expiration of the existence of the first bank ol the United States, must not be repeated. The notes of the local banks must not be made a national currency ! That error mined the currency in 1SI4 and in 1819, and the repetition ol it again ruined it in 1337. Three limes, in twenty - live years, lias that error deprived the Treasury ol ita revenues, the country of a mra - lire of values, and rendered nugatory the uniformity of weights and measures in which the whole Union bad egret d. The effect upon the community haa been the aame as il every seller had possessed the privilege, and had exercised it, of altering hit weights aid measures at his pleas, tire i lengthening or shortening his yaid stick ; rn - larging or reducing his bushel diminishing or increasing his pound weight Willi every sale, and precisely as it suitsi bis own inter s'a in every in stance. This is an enormoui and a crying evil, the parent of unnumbered impositions upon the whole community, and especially upon the weaker part. In paying do - ihli for the necessaries of life, . iherflVct haa been precisely the sams - as if Ihe pur - rhaerh ad received but lialf a pound, half a yird, and half a bushel, when he paid for a full pound, a full yard, and a full bushel. But, sir, I drop this disquisition. The pursuit ol it would carry me too far, at the present moment, into the workings ol the paper system. I drop it wilh remarking, that the arbitrary debasement of the current coin, formerly practised by some European kings, and latterly by some Turkish Sultans, was innocent and harmless, compared to the mischief done in our own country by the loss of a measure of values, and the consequent, or equivalent, destruc lien of all the measures of quantities. The thought loss and inconsiderate man, invested with no legis la'ive character, may say that paper money iif ighter than gold and silver ; that paper will buy any thing that gold and silver will buy ; that he does not care - whit his money is made of, provided it will pay his It bis. The unreflecting man may talk in this way ; Itut the statesman must look at money in i's exalted character of a measure of values ; and if that mra ur is lost or destroyed by his management, he com mits a great error, and in Hit Is a great injury upon llio entire community. We have lost that measnre. The Federal government haa occasioned ita loss. The useof paper at the Federal Trcaanry haa banished coin has set an example which has been followed by all the States, and by every individual until paper has banished coin, and made itself a fore - d tender in every payment. "Ing'nVmeTjrof'vufuT pj t - es. Every thing fluctuates. Trade is subjected to the hazards ol gambling. The remedy for this evil the means for tho re - establishmrnt of the measure of values is for the Federal Government lo use the true measure itself. In supplying itself with the true measure, it will cause Ihe whole country to be supplied. No nation can saturate itself with gold and silver more easily than the United States. The hundred millions of cxp - wtable products, annually sunt abroad to say nothing of domestic mines, and the supplies brought in by emigranta will bring bark an annual supply of 12 or 15 millions. We have but to invite its presence, by creating a demand for it, and 8 or 10 millions of this amount will annually remain wilh us until the national supply is full and complete. To be continued. THE EVENING POST. THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 29. The Independent Treasury Bill was on T uesday laid on the table io the House of Representatives. We refer our readers to the letter of our Washington correspondent, from which it will very clearly appear that this Tote is not, as it might at (irst appear, any indication ot the fate of the bill. The vote was not taken in a full house, and the majority in favor of laying it on the table was merely accidental. A motion has been made for the reconsideration of the vote, and we have no doubt that it will prevail. The National Intelligencer observes that the course which has been taken by the House, " is nn indication of strong dislike to the bill which .is true enough bo far as the whigs and conservatives are concerned, but admits that it is not a conclusive vote. The Star is fallen into difficulty in consequence ol the honest eonlession we quoted yesterday. The Whig General Committee which acta as a sort of wbipper - in of stragglers from the whig rsnks, has come out in a published resolution signed by Samu el Stevens, chairman pro. tern.; for the occasion vis sa pressing that the committee could not wait for their regular chairman, denouncing the entire ar ticle in the Star. The following is the resolution : M This Committee, on behalf of the Whig party ol the cily snd county of New York, whom we represent, repudiate and deny the principles and state - ments contained in an editorial article headed Pht - nU Rank," in the EVENINQ STAR of the S6th instant ; and wa emphatically deny tha statements tlieretn contained, or that they ara the opinions or sentiments of the Whis, party." The New Era properly asks " Is it come to this, tint a Whig journal is ntvtr to be allowed to speak truth no, not even inadvertently without incurring the public censures and denunciations ot a General Committee claiming lo represent the whole party ?n Certainly the occurrence oi a single error of the kind is not a snflicient reason lor cutting of) an of. fending member. Let the Whig General Committee have nurxy lor this once let them pardon the delinquent for a solitary slip but it they catch the Star telling the truth again, let them cast it off without mercy. The new Collector of this Port, Jassa Hovt.Escj., goes into office this day, and carries with him into the department, a degree of popularity which it is seldom the good fortune for individuals to enjoy. With a matured judgment, and a high capacity for business, improved by experience, he cannot fail of fulfilling every expectation of his friends and the public Tenth Ward. The difficulties which put the Democratic party in a minority last spring in this ward have been adjusted in a proper spirit of conciliation. Every thing will therefore go on harmoniously, and lead to a triumphant result. The meeting to approve ot the charter ticket, now published in our columns, was never exceeded in numbers or Pt" - .

The lnd pendent Treasury Bill, which passed the Senate, was laid nn the table in the House today, by a vote of l!MJ to 93. This would serm to be indicative of its tale in thai body. Let us look, however. There was not the slightest anticipation, among the friends of the bill, at least, that such a motion would be made. The attendance of members waa unusually thin between thirty - five and fortjr members were absent. The absentees were Messrs. Bouldin, Buchanan, Cheney, Chapman, Davee, Eld wards, Fletcher, ot Vermont, Fry, Holt, Hunter, ol Ohio, Jackson, of Georgia, Jones, of Virginia, Klingensmith, Loemis, New ol York, Mr - Kim, Noble, Owens, Parmenler, Petrikrn, Rrillr, Towns, and Weeks 22, in favor of the bill. The absentees opposed to the bill, n ero Aflessrs. Borden. lirigos, Coffin, Davies, of Pennsylvania, Jenifer, I'eirce, Potts, Kenchcr, Rutnsty, Williams 10. Mr. Gray, of your state, voted in the affirm itive, (or the purpose of being enabled to make the motion to reconsider the vote, which be aiicrwards did nake. The motion lo lay the bill on the table was made by Mr. p.illon,of Virginia. It was earned by a vote of 106Sto OH. Of the absentees 10 were against the bill, and 52 in its favor. Had there been a full house, the vole would havo stood 1 15 ayes to 121 noes, counting in the negative tha vote of Mr. Gray, who voted in the affirmative for the express purpose ef moving a reconsideration. Add lo this, tho fact, that there arc two vacancies in Maine, those occa sioned by the deaths of Mesrs. Cilley snd Carter, who were both in favor of the bill, of the two representatives from Mississippi, ol one absent troiu Louisiana, and the speaker, who did not vote, making six. The tnck by which an advantage was taken over the House, will avail but little. I know not how many of those absent from the House to - day, are absent from the city probably but a small proportion. Had there been any inti.iuttionof an intention to move to lay the billon the table, the vote would have been quite different front w hat it was. It was a poor trick, which tliougli surccsslnl at the moment, will most surely fsil, if triad again. It was a miserable device, wliicli will return lo plague the inventors. I tako it for granted, that Ihero will be much blow - ingof trumpets onttieoccasion, ami that the astound ing announcement that tlte sub - Treasury bill 1ms received its quietus in the House, will be uahered forth by the whig press, with much solemn glorifica tion. Theuct to which 1 havealloded, will, 1 think verify the homely adage about the lolly of Counting chickens, kc. kc. &C The people. whether they are in favor of, or opposed to the scheme will at least desire, that it shall have a fair trial. I cannot doubt the reconsideration of the vote of to - dln . I believe that a majority ol the House is in favor of ihe bill, I am sure that there is a maioritv. in favor ut least of giving it a hearing. Mr. Folsom commences his lectures on the sol - iect ol the discover? of' North A mane a by the Northmen this evening. It is a curious Mibje t, and if worthy of the attention ol Europeans, it is cer tainly so ol those wbo inhabit America. Tim docu ments recently discovered como aulhei tieated by men oi learning and standing in their om ii country When we consider the hardy and cnterpris V rpirit of the northern navigators in the middle and the proximity ol countries, which we know traey discovered and colonized, to the American coast, the ides that they extended their voyages to A nunc a is by no means improbable. Ilumboll says that they were the only people ol their time who were capable of doing it. Mr. Folsotn, in his lectures, takes the ground that there was no reason to believe that Columbus knew ol the discoveries of the Northmen. He illustrates bis subject with various collateral topics relating to the character, the religious belief, and romantic adventures of the pe vple ot the North of Europe. We are requested lo state that the report which appeared in several ol the morning papers relative to the circumstances attending the death of a pupil in the incorrect, and that a statement of the Trustees will be pre paired on the subject, and laid before the public immediately. The public in tho mean time are requested by the Trustees to suspend their opinion. Sixth Ward. We are informed that Michael Kcrrisn, Edward Murray, and S . W., have withdrawn their names from the vigilance commit tee of the ticket headed John Foots and Henry Erben. Massachusetts. The resolutions in the I louse of Representatives against the Independent Treasu ry bill, have passed by a vote of 214 to 09. The Boston Advocate says : "The CO will one day ba as prond ol thU vote as those were who voted against the resolves not to rejoice at our naval victories." All important discovery is announced in England, which, it is said, will revolutionize tho whole system of moving machinery by steam. A laboring mechanic has invented a mode of applying the force of steam directly to tho engine intended to hi moved in such a manner as to riJuce the expense to almost nothing, and diminish tho danger to nearly as little as the danger from a smoke jack, dailies expense a vast saving of weight and size is effected, and the power may be employed fur tie commonest jutrposcs and for setting in motion! lie smallest machinery. The expense of a four horse power will not cost mote than ten pounds sterling. Tho following description is given of the machine, which il our readers arc able to understand, they can do more than we. "Its form is cylindrical, being about 13 inches in diameter, and 22 deep. The steam is admitted through a hole in a hollow circular belt (attached to a wall), upon which it revolves, and works it by a diagonal action, against an upright pi.'ioti, being forced out by pressure ol a diagonal jilate, which divides the interior into two portions. The rotary action is beautifully managed by meant ot a pcrlectly spherical stream - tizht joint, at the et d ol n fixed inclined arm, towards which joint the upper and lower surfaces of the interior part of thn cylinder are made to slope, after Ihe lorm of if exterior f an hour - glass. Upon these the diagonal plate fnmii its evolutions, such movements bring permitted thronol, an opening, (from the circumference to Ihe centre,) equal in width to the thickness of the In - fore named upright piston, up and down Ilia sides of which it continually works. To the centre of the bottom ol the cylinder is fixed a shaft, havii'g attached to it a wheel which communicates the notion that may be required ; and this is all the mark nery.n LATER FROM HAVRE.

There is a subject now pending belore a commit' teo of the Common Council, of great importance lo tho tax paying citizens ol this Metropolis. It n inures immediate notice, as certain persona owning lands in the vicinily ol Harlaem river, are now ptes - sin the Legislature to interfere, by passing an act :o carry the project of the persons alluded to into cf. feet; and I therefore suspend, for the moment, my farther remarks on Ihe extravagance and mismanagement of the Common Council. "lt a linear the Water Commissioners in their late report to the Common Council, proposed to conduct Ihe Crotnn water over the Harlaem river by low Itidje, with iron pipes, at an expense of $41W, - 027. At the same time an estimate was preparea. hn in a - the cosi of crossin" with an aniieiluet, on regular inclined plain, on a bridge of LIS feel high above tide, with arches of 80 feet span, tha cost of which would amount to $935,745, being f50!,7l3 more than the low hnilire with pipes, and woulJ re. onirn at leant two Years' more time to build it than what the const ru. 'ion ol tho low bige would re nuire. The reasons offered by the commissioners in favor of Ihe low bridge were, in subatt nee thedifli - rpncn i.. t,o rat . iK c - ncle to be overcome in build - twenfy - rive feet in depth ; the uncertainly of securing the water and aqueduct from the effects of frost at such an elevation ; the difficulty oi preventing leakage in the aqueduct ; the evils attending any repairs, by which Ihe supply to the city would be suspended ; the additional time that would be necessary, and the fear that no persons would lie found to enter into contract for such an immense structure, owing to the limited experience in such work, without adding large sntns to balance the want of information ; and, finally, that the low bridpi would answer all the purposes and objects ol the high bridge, and when complete would ho a belter structure. Certain persons, however, who are Isrce speculators in (inns on the Westchester side of (he rivrr, r creek, aa the charter ol this city names it, and other! owning lota on the New York side, hare had sufficient influence with the committee ol the Common Council to induce them t withhold their re - poit, and in the mean time lisve applied lo the legislature to pass an act compelling tlie commissioners to erect Ihe high bridge, under the ostensible plea that the low bridge will destroy the navigation of the river. The low bridge, as I am informed, will contain an archway of ono hundred and twenty feet span, and sixty - oivi feet in height ; and if this is. mi, lam led to believe thai nn vessel ever h', or ever will, navigate that river, or, more properly, creek, but what will be able to pass through this archway, even if the present obstructions should be totally removed. These obstructions sre, first, Ihe bridge and nulls at Kingsbridge, which was in existence at the dale of the charter given by John Montgomery, 10S yesrs since. Second, the dam, or bridge erected by R. Macomb, under an act of Ihe Legislature, and this dam cannot be removed without great expense, as it is said, by the engineer employed by the High - l:. - idge party in the Common Council, lo ba ' constructed in a very substantial manner; as far as foundations are concerned, they arc of massive rock firmly downed." Then com - h a rivrr, or cm k, lull ot curves and turnings, wilh a considerable depth ot water in souio sections of the channel, and not more than five or six, down to two feet, in others. The truth ot the case is, that these gentlemen speculators, have no idea of making Harlaem river navigable, except forsmill crafr, and any p - ron who will take the trouble to step into the olli. - e of the Street Commissioner, and look at the map of the river, deposited there, will be satisfied at once, thai il is out of the question ; and if it waa navigsble, what vessel would attempt to pass through its crooked course, when they havo the north and east river btlore them to suit on, in order to arrive at any wharf they may wish to stop at 7 The amount ol" thn matter i, these gentlemen want a bridge of sufficient width for travelling over the aqueduct Iree oi cost, to be built at the expense of the cily of New York, by which they anticipate a lavnrable result lo their speculation. Hut, it is Bdid, the petition Jo Ihe legislati re camo from tlie people of Westchester. Well, if the navigation of this creek is so valuable to Westchester, why should they be exempt from paying a portion ol the expense? It is aire reported, that the bill petitioned for has passed the Aseamhly on the 23.1 insr. n,e fatiiert of our city are asleep, and pay no attention to ourtnterett xcluaerer. Connected with this subject, it my be proper to notico a report made to one of Ihe Boards or Common Council, on the 221 of January last, on the subject of making the Harlaem liver navigable. The committee recommend a present appropriation lor the Kurpose of $80,000. The rnrineer they employed, owever, has not ventured upon an estimate. He says, no estimate of the expense could be inadi calculated to give general informal ion, the form and se of the cros cut not having been settled. Here is an instance of the providence of our whi corpora - lion. Without a cent in the treasury belonging to them, an appropriation of $36,000 i recommended, and that too witlwut any knowledge or estimate of the ultimate expense to be incurred: by a project, on Wuich they are willing fo devote, at the commencement, so Urge a sum as $86,000. Il m proposed, in carrying this project into etfct, to cut a canal through the salt marsh to Ihe west of the King's bridge, and pass through the marble quarries to Ihe river, remove the bridge built by Macomb, snd by dredgm" Hie channel, they are lo have a navigable river. The loweet estimate 1 have beard named, for this ridiculous project, is a million of dolls ra ! If these gentlemen speculators are to rule in our Common Council and legislature, as Ihey appear now lo do, our citizens may expect that, not only a high bridge will be directed, at an expense ot at least a million, but, an additional mil. lion of du'lars more, for clearing the obstructions io the Harlaein river, and all lo enhance the value of property purcliased by individuals on speculation, whilo Ihe citizens in general must bo taxed loan extent faeyond measure, even to pay the interest on t'w debt, which will hang like a mill atone on the neck of this devoted city. .

By ihe article below, it will be seen that Mr. William J u - tim iKnl titrr.riina ftnil nillilic Stliriled citizen of I Philadelphia, has completed the spacious hotel that hus been in course of erection for some time past in that city.

Esn. Il is located in Chestnut street, above Seventh, immediately below me masonic Hall, and is in every respect an honor to the liberah - y and public snint of Ihe owner, as well as an or n a. ment to Philadelphia. We already can boast of a nuni berof well conducted and commodious hotels, out un less we greatly mistake, the new establishment the 11 ashinston Iluutc will 111 all Hie important leatures essential to a well mnnaped. capacious, and com fortable house, prove fully equal to the best in the Union. The Washington House is fitted up throughout, on a scale ol taste, magnificence and. uselulness without a superior in the history of similar establish ments, it embraces no less thin 9 chambers, ana fifteen pnvtc parlours. The number ot beds is 200. The Gentlemen's Dining room is 123 feel lonz, by 2 1 broad; and incapable of dining 250 per sons. I he Ladies' Ordinary is bz teet by lb. 1 nc house can accommodate 300 persons. It is five stories hih, and occupies 46 feet front on Chesnut street. The principal parlours tor the accommoda tion of ladies, are 33 .feet in depth by 21 wide, and open into each other by foldinz doors. In addition to these.we may msntion the Ladies' Jjrawing room, the Heading room, the uar room, &c. The turniture of the whole is ot the most cosily character, and embrace s Brussels carpets, French curtains, piano', and everv Hun?, in short, calcu lated to blend the comfort? and elegancies of privaie life, with all the accommodations ot a great public establishment. The expenditure incurred in this enterprise, including grounds, buildings and tilting up, u estimated at SloU.OW. ihe upholstering. such as b xldinp. mallrasses, hangings, &.c. &c, w ss furnished and arranged by Mt.

Mr. Thomas Uovd, reporte.1 the followiiMi preamble and resolutions : Whereas.aniuino runt political crisis hasarrivvd in tl lis cily, and as - vere contest is unpenilini; heiwe. - n the great demo iany and the ultra federalists, the ancient enemies of iein.raey. who. as if by siealih, have bi - en creeping along lor fori v years, assuming various diseuiscs. and ae asaiu in Ihe field, Iml.l. contident an.l assuming. As an evidence of Ihe fact, we see the opp .s tion purlin; forth hish - toiied fede - rahsls ior the most iinHriant eftires, n.en whi.v known principlrs are that the few shall rule at the expense of the many, men who are opposed lo a liberal loim of government, and in favor of a hereditary succession of the Chief Magistracy, rather than trua to ihe virtue and inteliigrnce of the people, in the free exercise of the elective fianchi&e. Therefore, be it Keselteit, That il behoves every Democratic Republican, high or low, io devote himself in the most efficient manner lo Ihe raese of tni'li. justice, and liberty, the cause in w in. h the gran.' mind of imiiMirlal Jetferson was so zealously do - vtiicf when he pc lined the iiu - iik. table Peclnratioii of our Independence, and li.r which a Wash ngu.n toiled, a Warren fell, and a M..llli;.ii.rry bled. Kesnlved, That we will,' with a spirit that characterised tlip fathersof the republican p iny, and a just recolleciion of their venerated names, and pure" principles., repress and res".hit. ly put .lown the present and every oilier outbreaking of Federalism, to the end that the blessings of a pure representative government may be securedto many generations Resolved, That we will use onr best exertions to elect the ticket now unanimously made hv the Democratic citizens of the Ninth Want, headed Thomas fi. Freeman Campbell, believing them to be good and true Democrats, and men who, if circle.!, will sustain the JetTersoniair principles, of our present eminent Chief Magistrate, and repre - sent the imereslsof ihe people Ciithfiilly and honestly, and he an honor and an ornament to the rounrils nl tl... riiv Resolved, That the present incumbent who fills the. Aire ol Mayor, has, by his narrow and illiberal Mliry towards onr (l.we fellow riliens, justly merited the scorn and indignation of every man who believes (hit America is an asylum for the oppressed of every clime, an.l that however much he might have Ih - . - u atfected in his youili by rea.ling "There came to I he beach a ss.r exile of Erin," his malum - arts are exceedingly inconsistent wilh his youthful professions. Il. - solveil. That the Democracy of the "Old Ninth" have w" " found that Ihe chances of having a goo. I chief magistrate by birh are about equal to the chance of obtaining one by riai tiiar rliclion," asaKscrted by al ite cliauipion of Federal d.H irinos : but they hold and believe, thai tho M p are Mill rn)iahle to select Iheir public servants. Kesolved, That the Democrats of the "Old Ninth" call upon those of her sister Wards, to come together as brethren in the impending contest, and exert themselves as Deiwcrais always should wiihom ix rsonal considerations of any kind, to oust from power tlie present reckless and extravagant authorities of ourcitv ineu who, actuated only by selfish feelings, are as inditferent lo our general wel - lare as if they were in reality, as Ihey are virtUHlly,ihe vassal ot foreign d. sioti. - in. Resolved. That we approve of the proposition made bv Alderman llollev, in Ihe Board of Assistant Aldermen, that the t - .rcincn of this cily liave the privilege ol electing tho Cheit Engineer of their Department, believing tlial such pnv. lege should be given them, not onlv as a mailer of right, but also of expediency. H "solved. That the Ninth Ward will repeat the Rc.odol.l story of easy and triumphant victory. Resolved, That while the Democracy of the t'nion has such soldiers in the field as will battle for their W'r(,anl tire Urnlun carrying the true principles of Demociaiic reform, they " rerg humbly conceire'' that it will require some subst nice more adhesive titan Clay to plaster uu Ihepenpls the s.litical orthodoxy of Ihe (jtxllJce Daniel, or scratch coal them wriih the ingenious sophisms of the great diplomatist himself. Resolved, That we rejoice in the opportunity of thus publicly testifying to the worth, talent, urbanity, ami gentlemanly dVportinoiil of onr present Alderman, John V. t.reen - flclit, aud Ass kutnt, Jacob Westervelt, and hereby tender them our wannest thanks for the liberal manner hi which they have their reapeciive duties. Resolved, TIkU ihe Nominating Committee for this Ward are eminently entitled to the thanks of the Democratic Electors of the Ward for the able and faithful performance of theirarduoiH duties. The follow in resolution was offered hv Ilenrv Iiebenno of the Second Ward, and was also adopted by the meet - ii ; WIereas,our enemies have endeavored to make the liberation of llie Bam bers a political affair, and unjustly claim for Iheir candidate to Mayoralty the credit of liberating those unfortunate men from erserutioii. when, in fact, their libera - linn was effected bribe inlerferenceof ihe Ueneral (iovern - uient. ihrough the District Attorney. William L Price, Esii. thet, e.l. That llie thanks of this community, and par - Ucularly tho adopted ciihteiw, are due to Ihe several counsel euga. - .t, and specially to Mr. Price, for lilie rating them from durance vile, the evidence being insnrficient to jusiifv their incarceration. Kesolved, Tliat thn Vicilanre Cnintnittee consist of the Democratic Association ol iliis Ward, with pwrr lo increase their numbers, and io that caiucity said Committee be le - miestiti to ass. - ml.le in this place on Thursday evening next for the despatch of such business as may be considered necessary.

Some of them had lost the sihi of one, and others of both eyes for a long period, who now see. Others who had been blind for a number of years, are now beginning lo see. Anions; that class is a lady who says she has been blind thirty nine years, and gave proofs in the presence of several ladies and myself, that she could distinguish men from women by their dress. Several others in the room assured me that previousl y to their applying to Dr. Williams, they were totally blind, hut were now able to walk the street without a guide. These facts were, ' however, but corroborations of my former exxriene( having many years since witnessed similar cures performed oy Dr. Williams, upon persons who had been blind or nearly so for many years. Believing these remarks may be serviceable m givin" confidence to those who are similarly alHicted, and m calling their attention to the treatment adopted by Dr. Williams, I have been m - duced to offer them for insertion in your paper.
