loathsome disease, now becoming so prevalent in different portions of our Confederacy: The United States Consul at the Rio Grande de Sul, Brazil, has transmitted to the Department of State a very interesting communication from Dr. R. Landell, of Post Alegre, claiming the discovery of a cure for the small-pox. Dr. Landell states that the idea of using the remedy to be mentioned first occurred to him during a terrible epidemic of the disease in 1837; but that he first administered it in 1842, since which time his success, and that of his son, Dr. John Landell, and other colleagues in the treatment of small-pox, has been most flattering.--As the Secretary of State has communicated Dr. Landell's paper entire to the leading journal of the medical profession in the United States, (says the Washington Union, from which we copy) it is only necessary for our purpose to extract that portion of the paper which discloses the remedy and its proper exhibition: Dissolve the vaccine that

of Georgia, which is the same district that is now occupied by the army he commands. In the latter part of 1838 he went to Florida and engaged in the Indian war until the fall of 1840. He was then chosen by the War Department of the United States as one of three promising young officers to be sent to France to perfect themselves in cavalry tactics. His companions were Capt. Floyd Bell and Lieut. Newton, and they entered the military school of Saul Mur, where they remained until the fall of 1842, having acquired a thorough knowledge of the cavalry tactics of the French army.--On his return, he joined his regiment, (the Second Dragoons,) at Fort Jessup, Louisiana, where he remained until the opening of the Mexican war, when his regiment was ordered to Corpus Christi, under Gen. Taylor. Soon after hostilities commenced, he was taken prisoner while out on a scouting party near Matamoras. The force was a small squadron of cavalry, under command of Capt. Thornton, the next in command be
ssachusetts had no stomach for the fight. Mr. Boutwell having been appealed to, Mr. Grinnell said that Mr. Harrington first said that the soldiers of Massachusetts have no stomach for the fight, and next the people, and in the third place the representatives on this floor. Mr Grinnell repelled the base slanders on New England, and remarked that the Western soldiers think that the soldiers from that section fight as well as any others. He referred to the action of the House in 1842, when Joshua R Giddings was censured for offering resolutions declaring that the slaves of the Creole had a right to rise and assert their native freedom. The Democrats voted in a solid body for it, and he reproduced the case as a Democratic precedent in regard to an Abolitionist. We do not hear so much of the crack of the slaveholder's whip as we did four years ago. The gentleman, from Maryland, (Mr Harris) said that he was willing to take all the sins of slavery.

since its existence.--That party was conceived and brought forth in disunion and could not exist for forty-eight hours as a political organization but for this fell and wicked spirit. That English vagabond (Thompson) was sent to this country by the British Government thirty years ago to sow the seeds of dissolution, and he now comes back as the guest of his friends and fellow disunionist to witness the bloody harvest. John Quincy Adams and Joshua R. Ohidings presented petitions in the year 1842 in favor of a dissolution of the Union. Senator Hale, of New Hampshire, presented memorials to the Senate in favor of disunion, and Mr. Seward and Mr. Chase voted for their reception. The present secretary of the Treasury (Mr Chase) advocated a recognition of the Southern Confederacy, in the Cabinet, while the Confederates had only a Provisional Confederacy at Montgomery. Mr. Summer, and indeed the leaders of the party in power were and still are in favor of "eternal separation. "--How dar
