MION)DAY MORNING, MARCH 13, 1837.


Later from Europe.-Several packet ships have ar-
rived at New York, bringing later news from France
and England. Among them are the Silvie de Grasse,
froTtHavre, bringing Paris papers to Feb. 1, and the
Oxford, from Liverpool, with London papers to the
2d. The news is'not important. The influenza con-
tinueddto prevail with severity, and it was extending
more widely through the Kingdom. Many deaths
were occasioned by it. It prevailed with less violence
in France than in England. Parliament met on the
31st of January, and the King's speech was delivered
by commission. We have copied it below. It does,
not deveope distinctly any intended measures of policy.
The address in reply echoing the sentiments of the
speech, passed without opposition in both houses. The
condition of the money market does not appear to have-
changed onaterially.
A Royatl ordinance had been issued at Paris for the
payment of the fifth installment of the debt to the U.
States, under the treaty of July 4, 1831, with the in-
terest, amounting to 4,222,999 francs.
It is stated that there is a great deficiency in the cot-
ton .crop in India. ..The deficiency is perhaps more than
made up by the large crop in Egypt. The last accounts
state that the Viceroy had already 30,000 bales in store,
aid that he expected to be able to export this year
200,000 bales. h- M s bets
THE KING'S SPEECH.
My Lords and Gentlemen:
We are comnlande4 by his Majesty to acquaint yOU,
that his Majesty continues to receive from all Foreign
Powers -the strongest assurances of their friendly dis-
Sposition and his Majesty trusts that the experience of
the blessings. which peace confers upon nations, will
tend to confirm and secure thepresenrt tranquility.
'His Majesty laments that the aivil-co'test which has
agitated the Spanish monarchy "has not yet been
brought to a close-; but his Majesty has continued to
afford to the Q4een of Spain that aid which, by the
treatyff quadruple alliance of '1834, his Majesty en-
gaged'to giVte if it should become necessary and his
Modesty rejoices that his co-operating force has ren-
dered defnl assistance to the troops of her, Catholic
Majesty. '
Events have happened in Portugal which,- fors a
tine, threatened todistrb the, internal peace of that
country. His Ma ijesty ordered, in consequence, a.
temporary augmentation of- his naval force in-the Ta.
gus, forth more effectual, protection of the 'persons
anid property of his subjects resident in Lisbon. and
the Admiral commanding his Majesty's squadron was
a'uthorized, in',case of need, to' afford protection, to tIhe
per#6h of the Queen of Port6gal, without, however, in-
terkfring in thodsp constitutional questions which divid-
ed the conflicting parties. -.
His Majesty has directed*the Reports of the CdMi-
strissioners appointed to inquire into the state of the.-
Province of Lower. Catada tp be l.id before you, and
has ordered us to call your attention to that important
We have it also in charge to recomnrnd for your se-
rious'deliberation those provisions -which -will be sub-
mitted to you for the improvement of the Law and of
the Admineistration 6f Justice, a6murinag yo:6 that -hit-
Majesty's anxiety for the accomplishMe"t of these ob,.
jects remains undiminished.
We are required to convey to you his Majesty's de-
sire that you should consult upon such further meas-
ures as may gwe increased stability to the Established-
Church and produce concord and good wmil.
Gentlemen of the dousx oJ Commons:
The Estimates of the year have been prepared with
every desire to meet the exigences of the Public Ser-
vice in the spirit of a wise economy. His Majesty has
directed them to be laid before you without delay. The
increase of the Revenue has hitherto more than justi-
fied the expectations created by the receipts of former
years.
His Majesty recommends an early renewal of your
inquiries into the operation of the Act permitting the
establishment of Joint Stock -Banrks. The best secu-
rity against mismanagement of Bankiug affairs must'
ever be found in the capacity and integrity of those who
are entrusted iwith-the a dminitratioa. o.them, and in
tlt) caution and prudence of the public; but no legiala-
tive regulation should be omitted which can increase
and insure the stability of establishments upon which
commercial credit so much depends.
Hio.Majesty commits these great interests into your
hands, in the confidence that you will be able to frame
laws in accordance with the wishes of his Majesty and
the expectation of his people. His Majesty is persuad-
ed that, should this hope be fulfilled, you will not only
contribute to the welfare of Ireland, but strengthen the
law and constitution of these realms, by securing their
benefits to all classes of his Majesty's subjects.
My Lords and Gentlemen :
His Majesty has more especially commanded us to
bring under your notice the state of Ireland, and the
wisdom ot adopting all such measures as may improve
the condition of that part of the United Kingdom. His
Majesty recommends to your early consideration the
present constitution of the Municipal Corporations of
that country, the collection of the Tithes, and the diffi-
cult but pressing question of establishing some legal
provision for thme poor, guarded by prudent regulations
and by such precautions against abuse as your ex-
perience and knowledge of the subject enable you to
suggest.
LONDON, Feb. 1.-it has transpired in time course of
the morning that the Bank Directors have resorted to
the very unusual expedient of becoming themselves
borrowers of money to a large extent as an addition to
the other means they have in operation for the contrac-
tion of the circulation.


Though the course, however, is a very unusual one,
we have not met with many objections to it; on the
contrary, it is considered to be just as legitimate a mode
of attaining that object as any other that can be adopted.
Still, the form of the transaction has become matter of
great curiosity among the monied interest, who inquire
what kind of security, for even in such a case it cannot
be dispensed with, has been given to the parties by
whom the money is supplied; and also, if the security
should happen to be in the shape of bills of exchange,
what sort of endorsement is added to them, and whether
such a transaction does not, in fact, come under the
description of a re-discount-a practice against which
great clamour was raised by the directors, at a time
when the credit of the country joint-stock banks was
under consideration. This is, of course, only to be
answered by thIe parties. more immediately concerned.
The sum so lent to the, Bank is said to be 5000.Q00.
The English stock market opened well, and prices
looked up. Some transactions in Consols were done at
90, but in consequence of the transactions above allud-
ed to, Consols rapidly receded to 89 3-8 to 1-4, which
was the closing-price, being a decline of 3-4 per cent.
This fall took place in an hour or two. The other
species of British securities speedily partook of the de-
pression; even Bank Stock, which it was considered
would remain tolerably firm, after the expectation that
the sale of dead weight" had been abandoned for the

Loss of a French Packet from Havre to Ver'a Cruz.-
The schooner Gen. Cobb, Cobb, on her passage from
Bristol, R. I. to Havana, fell in with the wreck of a
French packet, bound to Vera Cruz, ashore oil the
Keys. The schooner threw overboard part of her car-
go, and took on board part of the ship's cargo to the
amount of 35 or $40,000, and arrived with it and the
crew and passengers at Havana, Feb. 18.

Suspicious Vessel.-The schooner Crescent, Captain
Ramsdell, which arrived at this port a few days since,
from Aux Cayes, left that port on the 10th ult. at 5, A.
M, At 6, two leagues from Point Tiburon, a schooner
under Colombian colours, saluted the C. with a cannon
ball, aud caused her to heave to, until the armed schr's
boat could come on board. Thie officers were very po-
lite, and only requested some provisions, having been
(as he said) more than fifteen or twenty days on half
rations ; which demands could not be complied with.
About half an hour after, he permitted the vessel to
proceed. A young man on board the suspicious vessel,
stated that he was born at Wiscasset, and now belong-
ed to Boston ; that he had had strong hopes that the C.
would prove a United States' cruiser, to free him from
his present situation, having been pressed at Laguira.
He said the vessel's name was the Colombian, of La-
guira, and that she was "a damnable one." The offi-
cers stated that they wei'e thirteen days becalmed under
Tiburon, but the young nman declared they were but a
few days from Port au Prince. She had a laage num-
ber of men on board, and it was the belief of those on
board the Crescent, that she was a pirate.

cloaks. The St. Pancras road was crowded between
the hours of three and five o'clock, and so numerous
were the funerals that, at one time, they extended
nearly the whole distance from King's Cross to the
large burial-grounds beyond the turnpike, near the.Old
Church. Within the two hours no less than forty-seven
coffins were borne along, attended by a vast concourse
of persons.
Effects of the Influenza in France.-Private letters
from the Continent state that the epidemic la grippe, or
influenza, prevails the-re more than in this country. At
Paris it is raging to a very great degree, and there is
scarcely a family which some branch of it is not con-
fined by the effects of this malady. In some parts of the
French capital bordering upon the banks of the river
Seine the mortality has been most dreadful, especially
among the poorer-classes io the populous neighborhood
of the Faubourg St. Antonie and the Quartier St. Ja-
ques, where they have died from 80 to 100 a day. The
Hotel Dieu and-all the hospitals are filled with patients;
it has also been very prevalent among the troops of the
garrison, numbers of whom have fallen victims to it.
The Faculty of Medicine of Paris has given this epide-
rhic the appellation of "la grippe," in consequence of
the violent spasms it causes inwardly to the patient,
attended with a sore throat, great difficulty of breath-
ing, and inflammation of the lungs, so as to produce
convulsions and su'ffoc.ation. At Calais, Dunkirk, St.
Omer, and Boulogne, the greater part of the English
residents are laboring .under this malady. In Sweden
it is raging with great inralence.
Russia.-Lord Durham is likely to have a disagreea-
ble affair *to settle with the .Russian Government. A
British mefcJant schooner, the Vixen, has been captur-
ed, in. the Blick Sea, off the coast of Circassia, under the
pretencue -that she violarod a- blockade established b,
Rutsia, byr aRussiau vewssl of war. She had previously
disposed, of a. :cargo of salt at Ojook.-Spectator. I
From Smjyrna.-We have received Smyrna paper
to Jan. 21. The population wevselconsiderably alarmed.
early in the month by a rumour of the pread of the
plague in, several quarters b f the city, but it proved on
inquiry that it existed only in two cases, in which it
was ascertained the disease was brought from Vunrla.
The diseased persons were put in quarantine, and
- measures were taken to prevent the spread of the dis
- ease, which proved effectual.
Letters from Smyrna -as late as Jan. 26, have been
received, which state that about the 18th, the Plague
was abating at Constantinople, and that the whole num-
ber. of deaths during its prevalence, was estimated at
80 t 0100pOO. Smyrna was free from it, although sorn
othevillagpsnt far distant had 'been visited by it.-
In-Bopraba and the neighboring villages'there had
been -no new1'eeases withift-the lastthree weeks.
TNews had been received from, Bairout, inder.date of
tOri which sate that tlwwbof Syria had'beemr
thrbwn,tnito, 66nstaiation by a, catastrophe ,which had
involved several towns and villages, n ruin;, pn the
eveniingof the flirt dayofthteyear, a few riiigtUa be-
fore sunset, the towns of-'a beriju Japhet, and several
villages in the neighborhood, were entirely overthTown
by a violent earthquake, 1the shock -of whiCh wasfelt
throughout the, country, for a distance of many leagues.
Those towns were but a-heap of ruins, and it was' said
that nine-tenths of the inhabitants perished.. Every
day new details of the frightful disaster were received,
fromn;vvrious quarters, which showed its effects to be
more extensive than was-at first supposed. No intel-
ligence had been received from Jerusalem or Jaffa, and
this silence was favorably interpreted, as it was sup-
powed that if anycala mity had befallen 'those cities, the
news of it must have been received.' -.
At Acre 'and Seide the shock was very severe, It
was said that all the new buildings at Acre had been
destroye4:;At feide several hotuses'were thrown down;
and all the others were more or less injured.- The Khan
of the French agent ,wassafidered untenaritable, and his
wife was rescued from -the ruits- with he -leg crushed.
More or less damage was done at Bairout, and in the
villages near. Apprehensions were felt of further dis-
asters, as light shocks continued to recir every day. 7
Much damage had been done in the. country about
,Smyrna, by the violent rains which had prevailed. The-
fields were nd undated, and mrany troee had. bee~n blown
down by the storm.
The~papers contain accounts from Cosistantinople to
Jan. 18. Two officers *ho' himf tineer attach-t^'-ft~rte
Euphrates expedition, had arrived there, on their way
-to England. Col. Chesney with his steamboat was at
Bagd ad.
The N~ew Grenada War.-A Jamaica paper of Feb. 4,
says that the brig of war Wander had arrived from
Carthagena with the intelligence that Mr. Russell had
been released and was on board the Madagascar, which
vessel was in the harbour of Carthagena, and it was
concluded that the war was at an end. It was reported
that Paredes and Dias, who wounded Russell, had been
fined and imprisoned. There was a report also of the
death of Mr. Turner, but whether the British Consul
of that name omfnot was not known.

Titles of Javat Officers.-By an aet of Congress at
the late session, it is provided that the class of officers
heretofore denominated "Masters Commrandant," shall
be hereafter called Gammanders an4 "Sailing masters,"
hatll be called Masters. *
George's Bank.--Among the appropriations made at
the late session for the naval service, is one of $5000
for the purpose of examining-the shoals of George's-
Ban1, for the purpose of determining upon the practi-
cability of erecting alight house upon the same.
- Yn'su rm'fii Geotgia.-A slip from -Slapnah, dat-
ed at I2o'clc'k March 4, says that it began to snow at
4 o'clock that morning, and had, continued without in-
termiesion-A that-he'u^s..2'JearoKj'is" as ah^ ih
deep--1t-being the- greatest depth of snow which had
been witnessed there since 1803.
Religion of the D6g.-The Rev. Henry Duncan, in
his Philosophy of the Seasons, relates the following
original anecdote of Burns.
"I well remember with what delight I listened to an
interesting conversation which, while yet a schoolboy,
1 enjoyed an opportunity of hearing in my father's
manse, between the poet Burns and another poet, my
near relation, the amiable Blacklock. The subject was
the fidelity of the dog. Burns took up the question
with all the ardour and kindly feeling with which the
conversation of that extraordinary man was so remark-
ably imbued. It was a subject well suited to call forth
his powers ; and,when handled by such a man, not less
suited to interest thle youthful fancy. The anecdotes
by which it was illustrated have long escaped my mem-
ory ; but there was one sentiment expressed by Burns
with his own characteristic enthusiasm, which, as it
threw a new light into my mind, I shall never forget.
'Man,' said he, 'is the God of the dog. Hle knows io
other; he can understand no other ; and see how h|
worships him! With what reverence he crouches at
his feet, with what love he fawns upon him, with what
dependence he looks up to him, and with what cheerful
alacrity he obeys him- His whole soul is wrapped up
in his god ; all the powers and faculties of his nature
are devoted to his service ; and these powers and facul-
ties are ennobled by the intercourse. Divines tell us
that it ought just to be so with the Christian: but the
dogs put the Christian to shame.' "
Wordsworth's Poems.-Messrs. James Munroe & Co.
of this city, in conjunction with a house in Philadel-
phia, have published a complete and handsome edition
of the Poetical Works of William Wordsworth, togeth-
er with an appendix containing a description of the
country of the Lakes, in the North of England, and
various other pieces in prose. Thie whole is embraced
in a royal 8vo volume, neatly printed in double col-
umns on beautiful paper, and presenting a very credit-
able specimen of the art of printing. Although in a
compact form, it is not crowded or indistinct, and the
form is perhaps the best in which a collection of this
sort could be presented. It would be superfluous to
say any thing of thie character of these popularproduc-
tions. Our only purpose is to bear testimony to the


w'~w-- u~in7w- -. '- -'-p


terest, and that it should not be affected by private con-
siderrtions. Itis true, there was no stipulation in the
contract, that it should be kept secret, but from its na-
ture it may be fairly presumed, that such was the case.
Municipal Court: Judge THACHER.
The new Grand Jury were qualified to-day, and the
Court adjourned tilli Wednesday, when it is expected

From Florida.-The following letters are from a slip
by the Express mail from the office of the Charleston
Courier:

to be still until the talk is over. Gen. Jesup is at
Dade's Battle Ground and intends holding the talk upon
that sacred dust which covers the remains of the illus-
trious dead, how appropriate the spot ? What thoughts
will arise in the bosom of those wno listen to the con-
verse of.Micanopy, and behold the blood thirsty Jumper.
Whether the sin will accomplish all that is expected, 1
can 'not divine, but it is my opinion that their warlike
spirit is greatly subdued, and that ere long they will
fall unhonored and unsung.
Jumper, I understand, is already at camp ; he is as
ragged as an inmate of St. Giles, and as haughty as his
honor the Lord'Mayor ; though he is blood-thirsty, yet
we must admire the manner in which he conducts him-
self; the fallen Chieftain is not dejected, he resembles
the native oak of his forest, too proud to.bend to the
raging storm; though the cloud of despair hangs over his
head, hlie murmurs not; he holds communion alone with
that omnipotent power who governs the destinies of
nations.
FORT HARLTLEE, Sante fe Bridge, Feb. 24.-The ex-
press from Gen. Jesup has just arrived ; he states


* Official Jppointments.-It appears from the accounts
ivhich have reached us from Washington-, that the Cab-
inet under the new President remains the same as un-
der Gen. Jackson, with the exception of Mr. Poinsett,
1rho, as was anticipated, fills the vacancy in the War
department. This we suppose is all right in the opin-
ion of the Antiniasons of this State, Mr. Poinsett hav-
ing been perhaps the most conspicuous and active Free
Mason now living. The offence, if any be taken at
quch an appointment, by the~eleventk hour recruits in
;he service of Mr. Van Buren, we suppose will be
overlooked, provided they can be admitted on the foot-
ing of those who have borne the. burden and heat of
the day, and especially if one of the noisiest of theu-
tiumber can receive a suitable share of the spoils now
-o be distributed. Few minor appointments have yet
been announced. It was expected that the Senate
*would adjourn on Friday; and we shall'probably learn
by the Globe of Saturday, what 'further appointmentli
have been made.
- The Worcester Rail Road.-A correspondent of
the Mercantile Journal under the signature A Travel-
ler, is a little hypercritical, in, -complaining that we
poke only of the conduct of the conductor of the traint
on the Worcester rail-road, in our reply to the charge
t 'Which had been made of groew -carelessness and conse-
,qneht danger to- the- passengert on a. particular occa-
sjon, and not of the Superintendnt 'of'the road. The-
j charge was a specific one, of exposptre of the lives of the
passengers at a particular time and place. The Traveller
is of opinion that ifwe had pvnblihed the rule egtabliahs
Id by th Superintendent, for go0e-rning the couir' of
the conductor, it would oave-done more to traniqu4lze -
passengers, than the-statement which we made. :We
:were 6d opinion on the contrary, that it was important
to show noto1ily that there are good rules, but that
they axe well executed, especialy when the general
management of the road had been admitted to'be good.

tion. The-public needed .nothing fron'us t tra'ioil-

is true that when we stated that certain precauhtiDs
were adopted o4 that occasion in conform" witfi,
uniform practice of the very careful -echQdrctosA, we
,might have added that these precautions liad been
previously prescribed und required by the SupOrAnten-
dent; so also we might,. ave ttriily said many lthicr
things-in compliment to' the judgme-rxt a*.vigilance of
that officer of the corporation, had"it seemed .pertinent
toi the/particular object which we h'ad in, v'w, which
was to remove an erroneous impu~alon which was
fixed by the'publication referred, to, hot ubon the rego-
lations, but upon the imminediateagents odii the-road.

Systematic Thleft.--An examination of a woman, on
a charge of shoplifting took place at New Bedford'on
Monday. The retail merchants had lost large quanti-
ties of goods, and on Friday a Sheriff went to the house
of a Mr. James Swift, with power to search the house
for a veil which one of the daughters in the family had
stolen. He entered the dwelling and made know-n his
business, when the family solemnly declared that there
was no such piece of goods in their possession ; but on
being assured by the Sheriff that the thief was-detected
in taking the veil, and that the house would be search-
ed if it was not forthwith given up, it was brought for-
ward, delivered up, and all expenses paid. The suc-
cess in this case induced other merchants to institute a
search for their goods. Accordingly, two Sheriffs with
power of warrant, proceeded to the house about nine
o'clock on that evening, and commenced their search-
ing operations. In the chambers were found sundry
chests, trunks, anddrawers filled with new goods which
had not yet been unfolded, and from which the private

ABRAHAM W. FULLER,'<. AS3BAHAM A. DAMS.
This was an action of Assumpait on a promissory
,note' for $9600. The defence was-ist, Ao. want of con-
sideration, 2d, that the note was payable on a condi-
tion precedent. which had not happened. 3d, that the
nature of the agreement for Nhidh the note was given
:was such as rendered it void.
It seems that the defendant in this action was a large
'proprietor in the South Cove Company, at the time the.
above'mentioned contract was made. Henry H. Ful-"
-ler;:the original prayer.of this note,1was' at that time _a-
stockholder in th-jb, ston. and Worcester Rail Roadt
*Corpor4ion. The agreement, Which was of the sarme,
da'te as t'he'note"eand was'thLe consideration for which)
'it was given. was, in e%ct, that Fulle'rshbuld use his-
influence to get Ohesdep *Rail Road established on .the land of the South, Cove
Company, and in casp ol success, lie was to receive the..
amount of the note, Otberwise it was to be returned to
the defendant. '- After llie note'biecarnei'ue; Henry Hf.
Fuller endorsed it to the plaintiffl, and this action 'way
brought. -.ec-ower the mounL' ;;-. '^--- -
This was. a. &Middlesex a s jnd waa- argued last
J ,anuayy, and now thi' Chief Justice deliveredd the
opinion of'the Co6tthat't}ie point of delenc' was'
substa'ntial,'and that,'as the'ptement plaintiff took the
-no strbjt to.nfl tfe"equities between the original'
parties, he could not recover in this action... T -
* The court were of opinion, that the contract, jRcono.
sideration 6fwhich this note was given, was contrary
o public poliy,-&iid otterl%,% void. The notecaDnnot be'
considered, in -any light, as -paymeflt- for pr614ssiohal
Services, 114rt DDamre had nop occasion for.any.sAu&l as-
sistance.' The agreement was to accomplish a_ BJct
in which e was not immediately interested, anid the
failure of which woula not have beeii a direct injury to'
his'propfrty. The promise was bet^tien two individ-
uals to operate onahe minds of third 'persounsand such
a promise js not a good consideration, -in law. And thfs
too, where the act to be done may be lawfJl min itself.-
A man may- really believe that a marriage contract be-
tween two persons would be beneficial, and he may
lawfully propose the same, but any-promise-'of reward
for getting the marriage consummated would be utterly
void. If the contrary principle were established, it
would destroy all confidence in fair dealing, and be
productive of infinite mischief.
- This contract was contrary to public policy, not only
as it affected the public, but also as regards the Rail
1~qad Gorporation, and the South Cove Company.'
The Rail Road was intended for public use and
benefit. In granting the charter, a confidence was re-
posed in the Corporators, that they would'consult the
pubiair--e-ascBd thi9 coorfidence was strengthened by
the fact, that their own advantage was indissolublyvcon-
nected with the public convenience. But there "could.,
be no such confidence in corporations, if they might be
worked upon by extraneous considerations. Nor is it
any answer, that Mr. Fuller was not a director of the
company, or that lie thought the depot he had promised,
should be selected, was the best that could be pointed
out.-
Again: Mr. Fuller was a stockholder in the Rail
Road Corporation, -and the other members had a right
to suppose, that he was actuated in his votes by no other
considerations than what was apparent to, and felt by
themselves.*
The same remark applies to the other members of
the South Cove Company. They had a might to have-
time question, as to whether they should contract with -
the B. & W. R. R. Corporation in regard to the termi-
nation of the road decided in reference to their sole in-

From France.-We, have received by the picket ship
Poiandiat New York,,our,files of Paris papers, to Feb.
7, containing .London dates lto the 4th. 'On the. night
of the 6th a fire broke out in Paris, in-he great printing
establishment of Mr. Everat, which was entirely de-
strcyed. The loss ir,estimated at'400,0f00 francs. The
origin of the fire is not known.
According to the.latest Pews 'from Copenhagen, the
situation of the King. was critical. His strength had en-
'tirely failed him. "The King and Queen of.reece, had
arrived at Trieste, and w re to embark for Greece in
ihe Madagascar. The Minister of the -interior of Bel-
gium has offered a premium of 30,000 francs, for a.dis-
covery which shallintroduce greater economy of fuel in

The 1Freiich Chamber of Deputies was engaged from
day to day in discussing a law for the regulation of the
municipal administration-prescribing -the powers and
dutiess of the several municipal bodies-the powers of

I The Grippe continued to spread through the country.
The papeorofFeb. 5, says there is perhaps not a single
house in Paris to whichWthe epidemic has not extended

A new work upon Amerisa had'been just published
in Paris,,entitled Five Months in the United States, by
D, Ramon de la Sacra,Director-of the Garden of Plants
at Havana, in one volume 8vo.
The following paragraphs are from the New York
Gazette :


A courier who arrived at Vienna from Constantino-
ple, on the 30th January, brought an account of' an at-
tempt to assassinate tie-Sultan, by a former jannissary,
under the following circumstances: The Sultan, while
riding on horseback from his winter palace, a person
armed with.an air gun crossed his path, and fired at
Mahmoud, whose life wvas only preserved by a sud-
den movement.of'his horse. T ie assassin and nine
others presumed to,-be accomplices were arrested, and
after undergoing summary examination, were tied
up in sacks and thrown into the Bosphorus.
It was said to be the intention of Achmet Bey to un-
dermine Conastntine in several quarters, and to blow it
up, should the.French suceced in taking the city.
A letter from Bordeaux, which reached Paris on the
2d, states that General Alaix had attacked and routed
two battalions of Navarre, between Arlaban and Villa-
real de Alava, on the road to Durango.
Ther9 is little or no news from Spain Espartero was
said to -be lying at Bilboa, bed-ridden. It was also said
that he 'was succeeded inhis command by Gen. Rodil,
the go~erniment.having formed a different appreciation
of his conduct in Andalusia, from that formed by the
nublii. EDsartero's inactivity was looked unon bv


- -C -a


dow into the canal, and was drowned.
The plague at Constantinople had positively abated.
There had been admitted within a week to the Greek
Hospital only 22 sick. The -Greek Patriarch on appli-
cation had made a statement of all the persons of his
religion who had died of the plague since the -disease
broke out. The number was 4,303, including Constan-
tinople and the environs to the mouth of the 'Black Sea.
It was inferred from this statement, that the mortality
had not been near so great as had been supposed, as it
was understood that the Jews, the Armenians and'the
Catholics had notsuffered so severely as the Greeks.-
Amusements were -as lively as if the capital had not
been the prey of this terrible scourge. The theatre and
public balls were in full activity.
The following remarkable story -is related of the
plague --An individual -retired to the country near
Adrianople, fbr the purpose of being removed to a dis-
tance from the contagion of the disease which prevailed
in the city. 'He had remained more than two months
in his retreat, when one day he took a fancy-to shoot a
crow which was passing over his head. :His children
picked up the crow, and played some time with it. 'The
next day three of his children were successWiely se-iaed.
with the plagues aad in the space of eight days the
house was entirely deserted, all its inhabitants having
fallen victims to the disease. It was supposed that, the
crow had belonged to one of the bands of those raven-
ous birds which had-fed upon the carcasses of some
peasants who had perished of the disease, and iad~been
abandoned in the fields. If the story.be true, it affords
a singular proof of the contagiousness and the -viru-
lence of the disease.

From Greece.-Our files of Smyrna papers.contain
news from Greece to the middle of January. The re-
turn of the young. King, with his bride, was anticipated
with some impatience. An account ofthe marriageicer-

Calamitous Fire at Quebec.-On the night of-the 5th"
inst. a building used as a House of Refuge for destitute
Individualss' took fire in the oakum drying room, and
was burnt down.ao suddenly thatthree of tho inmates-
perished in the-ilanies, and four others were so burnt
that they werenot -txpected to .survive 'the injury:-
By this calamity one hundred arid ninety men, Women
and children were deprived of-their onjy habitation
'and whatever ofPlothing and furniture they possessed.
The scene presented during the -conflagration- exhibit-
ed the afflicting spectacle of a crowd of women and
children huddled together on such portions of their
bedding as they had'beentable to save, and others run-
ning about in search of relatives -who -they feared
had perished.in.the flames. A subscription-,was im-
mediately opened'for the means of providing relief to
the sufferers.

Virginia Legislature.-The Virginia House of As-
sembly has at length passed the following resolution,
censuring the: oonduot of their late independent Sena-
tor in Congress, Mr.'Leigh.
1. Resolved, That the two several letters aforesaid,
of Benjamin -Watkins Leigh,.are deemed highly disre-
spectful in their tone,and unsatisfactory in their reason-
ings, and that this Assemblv doth decidedly disapprove.,
of the conduct of the said Benj.Watkins Leigh,touching
the expunging resolutions, and the instructions con- .
cerning the' same, given him by the General Assembly,
at the late session thereof. -
2. Resolved, (the letters of the said Senator to the-
contrary notwithstanding,) That this Assembly -doth
solemnly repeat their unshaken regard for the right of
instruction, as resting on the broad basis of the nature
of representation, and as one of the vital principles of
our ftee institutions ; and that it is the duty of the re-
presentative to obey the instructions of his constituents,
or resign the trust with-which they have clothed him,
in order that it maybe transferred into the hands of
those who will carry into execution the wishes and in-
structions of the constituent body.
S2. Resolved, That after the solemn, and now repeat-
ed expression of the opinions of the' General Assembly
on the Right of'Instruction, and&the duty of obedience t
thereto, no.man ought henceforth to accept or 'retain
the appointment of Senator of the United States from
Virginia, who doth not hold himself bound to obey such
instructions, or to resign the trust with which he is
clothed.

Statuary.-The 'astonishing success of our-country-
men in the art of painting, is so universally known,
that it has ceased to excite particular attention. The I
late exhibition-of geniuss for sculpture in our country, t
seems to be now putting in its claims of rivalry with i
the art of painting, through such artists as Greenough, r

Such was the alarm lest this thing should leak out,
that all the persons in the Globe office were specially
informed that no mention was to be made of what had
occurred-and yet the thing has leaked out-and I

correctness. L. N.

WASHINGTON, Friday, 10th March.-It was yester-
day, amidst gloomy clouds and an incessant rain, that
Mr. Forsyth was seen wrapt in his mantle, walking
without umbrella, and seemingly unconscious of the
peltings of the rain: his countenance evinced a per-
turbed spirit, and clearly showed that darker passions
were brooding within, than the clouds -without. The
moment I saw the man, I said something was the mat-
*ter. Mr, F. has too much self-sufficiency, too much
self-complacency, to be disturbed about matters merely
pertaining to theState ; and I immediately set my little
Ariel at work to divine-the cause. This trusty spirit
was not long at work before he discovered it-and what,
think you*? why, that Mr. Secretary had addressed a
letter-to the citizens of Georgia, to be published in this
morning's Globe, together with a note superciliouslyy
addressed, Mr. Van Buren, President of the United
States," announcing his resignation for causes therein
set forth. Blair, instead of making the proper fuss, and
endeavoring to -heal the wounded honor of the Secre-
_tyaryent the whole with the utmost nonchalance to the
compositor,; the proof sheet had been read, and the next
morning would have found Mr. Secretary plain John
Forsyth. It was under these contending emotions that
he was suffering when 1 beheld him. It appears that
his faithful and long services had all been forgotten;
and.that a mission had been offered him abroad. This
is the first time an American politician, 1 believe, has
felt -himself offended from a like cause, if we except
another Secretary- of State, to whom Mr. -Madison, in
consideration of his utter unfitnessfor the station, offer-
ed aypalliative ofa'like -kind. I believe it is generally
admitted that Forsyth has neither talent, industry, ener-
gy, nor character for his station; and hence it.is -not to
be wondered that Mr. Van Buren should desire o place
an efficient man in the department.
itbw this matter was healed cannot tell. 'I:presume
Martin persuaded him into good humor'; that he may
kill him with less trouble at more convenient season.
How different the course of his "'illustrious predeces-
sor," who, when he wished a man out of his way, told
ritm -very p6litely 'he must go, but thdt he might resign ;
exactly as the Roman tyrant'told Seneca he must die,
but very kindly granted to hrs option the .mode of
death.
P.. S." Phave just understood that thirty Senators have
signed a recommendation to the President in favor of
an immediate repeal of the specie circular, and that
KING, of Alabama, and several other western Senators,
have said to Mr. Van Buren that the whole west will
oppose him if he doe'not act promptly on the subject.

supremee Judicial Cow't: Before the whole Court.
: TTUESDAY, March 14.
The cases heard to-day were JOSSELYN VS(BRYANT,
ROGERS vs DAVIS, RooERs vs RILEY. The argu-
ments in a Middlesex case 'were also heard.
JOHN C. MERRILL vs BANK OF NORFOLK:
;This was an action of assumpsit, brought to recover
$453. The facts were these: Samuel Sampson,of this
city, received on consignment, a cargo of lumber from
the Plaintiff, which he sold, and took a note for the a-
mount demanded in-this action. At the request of the
Plaintiff, Sampson sent the note to the Bank of Norfolk
to be discounted. It was endorsed by him, and Mer-,
rill's name did not appear in the transaction. The
note was discounted and the money passed to the cred-
it of Sampson. -Before the money had been taken from-
the 'Bank, the cashierowas served with a trustee process
against. Sapnpson,and he refused to pay over this money
to the Plaintiff, supposing the Bank liable for the a-
mount to the attaching creditor. To recover the sum
thus detained the present suit was commenced,
For the Defendant it was urged, that Sampson sold
this lumber on his own responsibility ; the note became
his property,, and he was liable forth amount to Mer-
rill. The Bank dealt jiLtnoineJ1 ut SampsounLhe sent
tihe note to be discounted; he endorsed it -the money-
was passed to his credit; and ho one else was known
in the transaction. Surely if Sampson had owed the
Bank, they might have retained this money in pay-
ment. They knew but one person in the whole affair ;
they were not to be presumed as knowing, and if the
Plaintiff has suffered wrong, he must look to his agent.
For the Plaintiff it was insisted, that the note in ques-
tiorr, was the property of Merrill; he left it with his a-
gent for the purpose of getting it discounted, and he
could rightfully demand it or the proceeds 'in whose
hands soever he. might find them.
Andthe Court were of opinion that the Plaintiff
should recover Sampson was the mere agent of Mer-
rill for selling certain lumber, he took this note in pay-
ment. [t then became the property of the Plaintiff.-
Saxnpson was delegated to dispose of it to the Defend-
ants, which he did, but the proceeds did not belong to
him. Suppose he had sold the note for some specific
article, would that article become his property or be-
long to his principal? Clearly the setterr. -In'this case
the money had not ever been in the .possession of
Sampson.
CARTER vs. WILLARD.
Trespass against the Sheriff of Worcester County,
for taking Plaintiff 's goods as the effects of another
person. The property in dispute consisted of the furn-
iture of a hotel, and of a mansion house in Lancaster,
together with the horses of a livery stable. The Plain-
tiff had paid a fair consideration for the property, and
had taken a bill ofsle of it, but there had'never been a
formal delivery. Before the attachment made by the
Defendant, one Damon, who had a lease of the hotel


and livery stable, received notice from the vendor and
vendee, that the property had passed; no notice of the
kind was delivered to the tenant of the mansion house.
The question was whether this property was vested in
barter befo re the attachment made by Willard.
The Court were of opinion that there was a sufficient
delivery of the horses and furniture of the hotel, and
that the Plaiutiff should recover for so much as they
were worth. In this case there' could not be an actual
delivery of this property without infringing the rights of
the lessee, and it was-sufficient, if notice was given him '
that ,the property had been sold to Carter, and that he
must account to him for it. In regard to the furniture
of the mansion house, there had been no act, which
amounted to a-constructive delivery even. The bill of
pareelp passed the property as to the parties, but could
not affect the rights of attaching creditors.

and given to the society by one of its members-was well filled;
and, by its profound attention, the audience testified to its deep
interest in the services of the occasion. An occasion that seem-
ed to an observer to be marked by good order and an excellent
spirit, whioh appeared to be the pledge and earnest of a ministry
pleasant to.the youthful pastor, profitable to his flock, and honor-
able to both parties as well as to the faith which they both profess.
Installationa.-Rev. Andrew Rankin was.installed Pastor ofthe
Congregational Church and Society in S. Berwick, Me. 1st inst.
Rev. Mr. Gunnison, formerly of Lyman, was installed over the

her funeral this afternoon at 4 o'clock, from No.7, Distil House
square.
On Sunday morning, very suddenly, Joseph E Smith, Esq., 53.-
He was found. dead in his bed, in so natural a'posture that -he
was supposed to be asleep by the person who first approached
the bed in the mimning. He had evidently died without a strug-
gle, probably ml sleep, having retired the previous evening inh p-
parently perfect health. 'The physicians who were called to ex-
amine the body, gave it as their opinion that his death had been
caused by chronic disease of the brain, and had been long defer-
red, perhaps, by singularly regular and temperate habits. Deep
and long will be the mourning of many friends in distant parts of
the country, for this apparently solitary man. How will they
miss hiRkind annual visit, his unceasing cheerfulness, his con-'
stant remembrance!
On the 14th inst. Sarah Ann, daughter of the late Mr Joseph
French, 14.
In' Roxbury, on Frlday, Mr Solomon Smith, 72.
Iq New Orleans, 24th ult. Mr Robert V Orme, of the firm of B

night without a light, unfortunately stepped through an open
scuttle in-the second loft, which was usually'closed. He wasim-
mediately precipitated thirty or forty feetupon the first floor, and
a severe fracture of-the scull occasioned his instantaneous death.
He was a native of North Carolina, and' for the last six or eight
years a resident of N O.-He was much respected.
'In Chicago, Ill. Mrs Nancy, wife 0of Capt LI Jamison, of the U
S Army.
In Trinidad, Cuba, Jan 31, Mr William McElroy, oak cooper,,a,
native of Philadelphia. He was taken prisoner in the last war,
and suffered much in consequence of his confinement in Dartmoor
Prison. He had resided in Trinidad upwards of 13 years, and
woe s uch respected.

And where's the cold. fowl, and the ham, and poteen ?
The pressed beef; with the fat cut off,-nothing but lean ?
And the portable soup in the patentt tureen ?

:-- SPEECH OF MR. CUSHING,
OF MASSACHUSETTS.
On the bill making appropriations for the Indian De-
partment, in the House vf Representatives, Feb. 1.
We are not able to find room. for the whole of
this speech. He first reviewed the past policy of the
government, and the constitutional law in regard to
their treatment of the Indians within the National
territory. ie then proceeded as follows-
Under 'various treaties with the Indians, at every
epoch of our history, the United States have assum-
ed the duty of protecting them ; we have labored
to maintain peace among them; we have anxiously
endeavored to civilize and elevate them; we have
admitted their right of occupancy; we have pro-
ceeded in the extinction of their titles by treaties
containing liberal stipulations for their permanent
advantage ; our national intercourse with them has
been dictated in general by a pacific, just, and pa-
ternal spirit, becoming the character of the United
States.
Upon observation of the state of the Indians, in
the aim of consulting their particular welfare, and
at the same time maintaining them in existence as.
a distinct people, it has been seen that three cour-
ses offered themselves to the choice of the' United
States.
In the first place, the Indians might be prompted
or allowed to organize themselves into political'
communities, within the limits of the States in which
they should happen to be, and independent of the'
local jurisdiction of such -States. Some of the.
Southern tribes, from the admixture of white men,:
or from other causes, did in fact make a great- and
visible progress towards civilization, and had mani-
fested an aptitude and a disposition to continue as
organized nations -on the soil of their inheritance.
They had been favored in this by the United States.
YetI the difficulties attending.the execution of such
a plan were serious and embarrassing in the ex-
treme, even if at all superable. I admit (said Mr.
C.) the magnitude of those difficulties. I defer to
the truth of the" remark of Chief Justice Marshall,
just quoted, that.theex;ercise ofLth_epowers of self-
government bythe Indamns within a State,i-ae-er&
in the policy of this nation, been contemplated as
temporary; that, as a general rule, when it becomes
inconsistent with the political welfare of a State
that an independent power should exist within its
limits, this-power must give way to, the -greater
power which surrounds it; and that sound policy
requires of such lesser power, either to part with its
territory upon equitable considerations, or eventu-
ally consent to become amalgamated in the larger
political community. I recall to mind the corres-
po44ing remark of Chancellor Kent, in regard to
'the Indians in the older States, that, To leave the
ITdians in possession of the country, was to leave
Sthe country a wilderness, and to govern them as a
distinct people, or to mix with them, or admit them
to an ivtercommunity of privileges, was impossible,
under the- circumstances of their relative condi-
lion." These difficulties, I repeat, in the way of
leaving the Indians to the exercise of independent
political sovereignty within the limits of a State, are
psefous and embarrassing, even if they he at iall
i superable. They have led to the adoption, in the
Solder States, of-, ,
I the second place, the organization of the In-
dlant'into municipal conot-nmtiies merely,,i acting un-
der the guardianship and supreme legislative con-
trol of the -State. Sidcb is the present condition of
the few remaining Indians within the Common-
Swealth of Massachusetts. .-
Thirdly, the removal o the Indians from without
th rminits of the individual States, and their estab-
lishment in the unoccupied territory of the United
States we sAt oftIe M`issisippi.V This must he re-
garded as the systematic policy of the- present Ad-
tt~i}tstration: When I speak of it 's the policy of
-te present Administration, I do not forget the fact
that the idea -of the removal of the Indians wfts en-
'tertained at an early period in the historyy of the
Government. The compact with Georgia proves it:
and, under -the administration of Mr. Monroe, espe
-aly, the idea began to assume a distinct shape, as
a political measure. Btufthe adoption of the policy,
as a settled system, belongs.to the, last eight years;
and -the responsibility of-it,- for good or for evil, for
honor'or for dishonor, rests 'with the present Admin-
ijt.ation. -
,-' -That systemtn-as now in the course of execution,
received the sanction of Congress and of the Execu-
tive-in -the act of the 28th May, 1830, for the remov-
al of the Indians west of the Mississippi, which pird-
v-idaes .is-fiai s _n .-
^*"SEC. 1. it shal'snda mayjhm-1awfu'forfalrjheJ Pxep
dent to cause so much of any territory helonging'to the
United States west of the Mississippi, not included in
any State or organized Territory, aind to which the In-
dian title may be extinguished, as he may judge neces-
'tajy, to0 be divided into a suitable number of districtsB,
fo the receptian-of such tribes or nations of Indians as
mfc choose to erichange- thre lands where they now re-

F ('SEC. 2. It shall Le lawful for the President Boleinoi-
Sly to assure the tribe or-nation with which the exchange
is made that the United States wil' forever secure and
c nuarantv to them and their heirs .or successors, the


Country, so exchange wvith them:; and, if they prefer
-i, that 'thie United States will cause a patent or grant
to be made and executed to them for the-earme.
"SEC. 7. It shall be lawful for the President to have
the same su'perimltdndence and care over any tribe oi
nation in tire country to which they may remove, as
contemplated by this act, that he is now authorized to
have over them at their present place, of residence."
'The system has received!the further sanction ol
Congress in the act of the 14th July, 1832, having
for its object te appointment of commissioners'tc
visit and examine the.country set apart for the emi-
Sgrating Indians west of the Mississippi, and to re-
port to the War-Department a plan for the improve-
fent, government, and security oftheIndians.
-; Now,i under the authority of these acts- of Con-
gress, the President has proceeded to negotiate trea-
- ties with' the Indians for their removal to the West
*whikh Congress has confirmed by directly confirm-
ing the treaties, and by making vast appropriations
to carry them: into effect. Some of the Indians have
Already gone; Others, including the more numer-
ous' and important tribes, are in the course ofremov-
al. 'The contemplated examination of-the territory
assigned for their reception has been made' Plans
f6r fthie government and security of -the removed In-
dians have been presented to, and have been ap-
Sproved by, the War Department. Many millions of
money have been appropriated in execution of the
Several treaties of emigration. In short, the sys-
tematic removal of the Indians, I again say, is the
settled policy of the existing, Government of-the
United States.' -
Mr. C. said-that if he' had enjoyed the honor of a
seat in Congress at the time the law of 1830, whicn
Save method and system to-ihe policy of removal
Swas enacted, he could not have yielded his assent tc
the measure. He applauded the eloquence, the
courage, the zeal, the ability, with which the law
i- was resisted. He should have joined with the op-
Sponents of it in considering its policy too questiona-
ble, the visible and immediate wrong too flagrant
the neglect or violation of the pledged faith of the
United States too palpable, the hazards of war and
S 1- __ A -- -. -


and serving them efficiently in the new homes be-
yond the Mississippi we have compelled them to ac-
cept. I cannot bring my mind to approve the policy of
removal, particularly in-the time and mode of its act-
ual execution. But I acquisce in the fact whichis.
I hazard something, perhaps, in making this avow-
al ; but I should be unworthy of my place here, if I
were content to swim passively along for ever in
the current, without venturing at any time to act
independently upon my own judgment; and I feel
a deep conviction that it is become a duty to direct
my own efforts, and, so Tar as my counsel may have
influence, the efforts of the other friends of the In-
dians, into the only practicable path ofbeneficience
which the providence of God has left us to traad.-
We cannot prevent their emigration. Let us unite
in smoothing the way before them.; in protecting
them at the end of theirjourney; and in elevating
them, if we may, to the rank of civilized men, capa-
ble of participating in the advantages which our so-
cial and political institutions bestow. *
I declare my acquiescence (said Mr. C.) not in
the original justice, but in the present fact, of the
removal of the Indians. Doing so, I direct my mind
m pursuit of their good, according to the new con-
dition of things, imposed upon us by the course of
events. I look to the Administration, which holds
the efficient power of the country in its hands, to see
what are the plans of the Government. I find them
to be, what the Report of the Committee on Indian
Affairs indicates, as manifested in past years, and
especially as communicated to the present Congress
by the acting Secretary of War.
Mr. Gushing read some passages from this report,
and said that he recognized in the sentiments of it the
upright and accomplished mind from which they eman-
ated. He commended the general purposes it disclos-
ed. Of the details of the plan it would be premature
,to speak now: they would become a subject of discus-
sion hereafter, as connected with a bill'which the Com-
mittee on -Indian Affairs had just presented, in accord-
ance with the designs of the .Government. He would.
however solicit rthe attention of the House at this time
,to an important provision of our treaties with the In-
dians, very properly referred to by the Secretary of
War.
The treaty with the Delawares, concluded at. Fort
-Pitt, on the 17th September, 1778, in the very crisis of
the war of the Revolution, contains the following ar
tide:
"ART. 6. And it is further agreed on between the
contractingg parties, should it be Tound conducive to the
mutual interest of both parties,to invite any other tribes
who have been friends.to the United States, to join the
present confederation, and to form a State, whereof the
Delaware nation shall he the head, and have a Repre
,sentative-in Congress."
And in thetreaty concluded with the Cherokees, at
Hopewell, on the 28th November, 1785, is the follow-
ing:
"ART. -12. 2 That the Indians may have full confi-
dence in the justice of the United States, respecting
their interests, they shall have a right to send aj)eputy
of their choice, whenever they think fit, to Congress."
And in the treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek, with the
Choctaws, of. the 27th September, 1830, is the follow
ng :
"ART. 22. The chiefs of the Choctaws have sug-
gested that their .people are in a state of rapid advance-
ment in education and refinement, and have expressed
a solicitude that they.smighthave the privilege of a Del-
egate on the floor of thc House of Representatives ex-
tended-tothem. The commissioners do not feel that
they carn, under a treaty stiprtlatioh, accede to the re-
quest; blit, at their desire, present it in the treaty,that
Congress may. consider and decide upon the applica-
tion.
Finally, at so late -a period as, the 29th Decembew
1835, in the treaty of New Echota, with the-Cherokeea
is this article:
"ART. 7. The Cherokee nation having already made
great progress in civilization, and deeming it important
that every proper and laudable inducement .should be
offered to their -people to improve their condition, as
well as to guard and secure in the most affectual man-
ner the rights guaranteed to them in this treaty, and
with a view to illustrate the liberal and enlightened po-
licy of the Government of the United States towards
the Indians in their removal beyond the territorial limits
of the States, it is stipulated that they shall be entitled
to a Delegate in the House of Representatives of the
United .States, whenever Congress shall make provi-
sion for the same."
Now, I cannot -permit myself,(said |Mr. C.) to co*
sider these reiterated stipulations as mere tricks of di-
plomacy, dishonest arts, false- pretences, held up to
allure the Indians into treaties of cession and of eoi^
gration. 'The idea continually suggested to them haas
been: You shall become as we are; you shall be. or-
ganized into a political community, under the guaranty
and safeguard of the United States; youi shall be heard
in the great council of the American people. I desire
to see this promise of the nation fulfilled, either to the
teter~rP-',"Bt-ny- ratee, -in '*spirit-and srimeae- ---hop.
the Government acts in good faith in this natter. 1
know it has the power,'I adjure it to exert an efficient
will, to accomplish its avowed plans of humanity and
justice in-behalf of the emigrant Indians.
I'e,.proceeded to urge various considerations in favor
of this policy, in a Course of argument for which we re-
gret that we have not room, and concluded his remarks
as' follows :-
Dictates-of duty in this matter are not less imperative
thfyan arguments of policy. The Indians are in our handa.
They have been sunk to what they are, if not by us,


t yet through us. We have assumed the guardianship of
them, and have pledged'ourselves, by stipulation after
stipulation, to-watch over their welfare. I invoke the
faith of treaties, 1 appeal to the honor of the nation, i
Demand of its truth and justice, if there be any sense of
) right in civilized communities, that we act decidedly
and promptly in the execution of some well-digested
Plan for the benefit of the Indians subject to our author-
ity. Let us not speak to them only as conquerors, and
in the language of relentless rigor; but to the vigor that
shall overawe and control, conjoin the justice that shall
command respect, and the clemency that shall con-
Sciliate affection.

LEVERETT'S LATIN-ENGLISH LEXICON--
comapiled from the labors-of Forcellini, Scheller and, Liuene-'
inann.
Tijis comprehensive and very copio3s Manual has been befobtiB
the public but a few months, and is already in use in most'of the'
Colleges and Academies in New-England, and has been highly
approved wherever it has been examined.
The definitions ih this work are given with singularifecssion
and clearness, and will be found to be pure English, whichin itsel
is no small recommendationh-they will also be found to be philo.,
sophieally arranged.
The length of every voiwel is marked in each wodl; so that the
trouble and expense of a Gradys are dispensed with.
The Greek Synonym is affixed to the most important words; I
thus facilitating by comparison the critical acquisitio--of both lan-
guages. A Latin definition is also often adjoined, whichk"dds
much to its value for the mature scholar.
In the matter of typography, it is believed to be the most accu--,
rate work of Its size that has ever issued from the American press, |
and to be in every respect worthy the patronage of the public.
