THE POWER OF INNOCENCE.
A TRUE STORTY-
When first the nuptial state we prove.
We live the happy life of love;
But when familiar charms no more,
Inspire the bliss they gave before-
Each, less delighting, less is loved,
First this, than that, is disapproved;
Complaisance flies, neglect succeeds,
Neglect, disdain and hatred breeds.
'Twas thus a pair, who long time proved,
The joy to love, and;be beloved,
At length fell out for trifling things;
From trifling, anger mostly springs,
The wish to please forsook each breast,
Love's throne by basest rage possess'd,
Resolv'd to part-to meet no more,
Enough-the chariot's at the door-.
The-mansion was my lady's own-
Sir John resolved to live in town:
Writings were drawn; each course agreed,
Both vow'd they'd ne'er recall the deed.
The chariot waits.-Why this delay?
The sequel will the cause display.
One lovely girl this lady bore,
Dear pledge ofjoys she takes no more.
The father's-mother's-darling she,
Now lsp'd and prattled on coach knee.-
Sir John, when rising to depart,
Turn'd to the darling of lhis heart,
And cried, with ardolu- in his eye,
"Come, Betsey bid Mama good bye."
The lady trembling, answered "No-
Go, kiss Papa. my letsey, go.
The child shall live with me," she cried,
"The child shall choose," Sir John replied;
Poor. Betsey look'd at each by turns,
And each the starting tear discerns;
My lad asks with doubt and fear,
"Will you not live with me my dear?"
"Yes," halfresolv'd, replied the child,
And. halfsuppress'd her tears, she smil'd.
"Come Betsey, cried Sir John, you'll go,
And live with dear Papa, I know."
"Yes,"-Betsey cried-The lady then,
SAddress'd the wondering child again-
"The time to live with both is o'er,
This day we part to meet no more:
Choose then,"-hlere grief o'er flow'd her beast,
And tears burst out too long ssuppress'd,
The child, whose tears and chiding join'd,
Suppos'd Papa displeas'd, unkind;
And tries with all her little skill,
To soothe his soft, relenting will,
"Do, cried the lisper. Papa, do,
Love dear Mama! Mama loves you"
Subdued, the source of manly pride,
'No more his looks his heart belied;
The tender transport forced its way-
They both confessed each other's sway;
And prompted by the social smart,
SBreast rush'd to breast, and heart to heart,
Each clasp'd their Betsey, o'er and o'er,
And Tom drove empty from the door.
Ye that have passions for a tear,
Give nature vent, and drop it here.-Lond.

BRITISH HOUSE OF COMMONS.
The following particulars are taken from an
article in the London Observer.
The building in which tlh House of Com-
mons assembles, was built for a chapel, and
is still sometimes called St. Stephen's Cha-
pel. It was founded by king Stephen, and
rebuilt by Edward III. in the year 1347. '
There were placed in a building.near, for
the use of the chapel, three great bells,'which
were rung at coronations, triumphs, furne-
rals of prince's, and on other great. occa'-
sions. It was fabled that their ringing sour-
ed all the drink in town. Above the largest,
it is said, was this label-
"King Edward made me
Thirtie thousand and three; .
Take me down and weigh mee,
And more shall ye find me." .
But when the bells were taken down, all
three were found to weigh less than 20,000
pounds. It is only since the time of Ed-
ward VI. that the dlmapel has been appropri-
ate to its present use. It has undergone
various alterations, but still retains the ap-
pearantce of a chapel. The wain-scotting, ,
the ceiling, the galleries and the backs of' I
tlhe benches are composed entirely of oak o
highly varnished. The light is admitted on- i
ly from one end. aI 1
In ancient times the members assembled d
for the despatch of business as early as se-
ven o'clock in the morning. This 'was at- p
terwvards changed to ten o'clock, and to this i
day the House adjourns nominally to ten s
although the hour of meeting is understood
to be four, except on certain occasions when 1
there is a special understanding to the con- t
trary-and the House meets at two, three, c
or half past three, when the king attends i
parliament. The entrance and departure of c
the speaker are marked with some ceremo- r
ny. His approach is announced by a loud d
-AIA RISBULI-IG-MONDAY, AP1IL 9, t.)7.
exclamatioil from.6one of the messengers iof
"Mr. Speaker," which is a signal.to all .per-
sdns nit fe lobby, whether member' or stran-
gers, to takeoff their hats.. IfI this-mirk of
respects not voluntarily shown, it is imme-
diately demanded. by the constables. The
speaker advaindes, preceded by;the sergeant
at arnis, beating the mace, anid his secretary,
who are both in full dress black suits, wiih
bags and swords. The-speaker is dressed
in a black silk robe, the train of which is
borne by his train bearer, wlo is also in full
dress; The procession is closed by two
door keepers whose duty it is to shut the
doors after the speakerhas passed. ;
The manner of pro',eeding by the speak-
er before cllingt the House to order is thus
"At a few mirnite beforefour o'clock, the
speaker enters the hoeise, and proceeds to
the table, where he takes his.seat in one of
the chairs prepared for the accommodation
of the .lerk. He, then directs the sergeant
at arms to call the chaplain, by whom pray-"
ers, appointed for the use of the House. pre.
vious to the commencement of-business, are.
read. At the conclusion of prayers the
chaplain retires, and the 'speaker counts the
members who are present. If there be forty
in attendance he immediately talke.4 his own
seat. If not, he waits their .arrival, and"
counts .them as they enter the house.
Should the hour of four, by the house clock,
arrive before he obtains, forty, he stands-,up
*in his own chair, and recommences the ce-
remony of counting in a slow and deliberate
manner, pointing to each member with his
chapeau as he proceeds If, on this second
counting, the number of forty is' still defi-
cient, he announces that the. House is ad-
journed; it is- adjourned accordingly, "till
the morrow morning, at ten o'clock." The
presence of forty members, however, is not
at all times considered necessary for the de-
spatch of business, for when the speaker
once takes the chair, many of the members
retire, and it fi-eqiently happens that not
above fifteen or twenty remain behind.
The stranger's gallery is computed to af-
ford accommodation to about a hundred and
fifty persons. Females are excluded from
it by a standing order, which is preserved in
fuidlforce. The curiosity of ladies it is sta-
ted has frequently induced them to have re-
course to the disguise of male apparel, to ob-
tain the privilege of being present during the
proceedings of the House.
Members choose their seats every day on
coming into the house, and when great pub-.
,lie questions are to be debated they secure
them vfor the day only by affixing their
names. The ministers and leading mem-
bers of the opposition, however, are by cour-
tesy permitted to sit uniformly in the same
seats. [Bost. D. adv.
A murder of a most horrible character, -
was lately committed in a lonely house in
the skirts of Norfolk. It.was,tenanted by
two foreigners, who occupied it only at night,
and their proceedings caused some'unfavora-
ble suspicions to be entertained of them.
On the 2(th inst. between 8 and 9 o'clock in
the morning, a cry of "murder" was heard,
and sometime after the two men left the
house, which was soon entered by an officer,
who discovered the naked trunk of a human
being lying on the floor, divested of its head
and limbs!--the head, feet and hands were
in the fire place almost consumed to ashes-
the arms and legs were separated at the
joints and placed in a bucket! The dissec-
tions appeared to be skilfully performed.
An axe was also found besmeared with blood,
and two butcher knives!
There was no furniture in the house, ex-
cept some bedding and twotrunks-the lat-
ter were filled with valuable, articles of clo-
thing, *many costly watches and articles of
jewelry, and an elegant patent lever gold
watch was lying on the floor. The suspect-
ed persons were pursued and caught, who
called themselves Manuel Philip Garcia, and
Joseph Garcia. They were examined and
committed to prison. [They have since
made confession.] .Niles' Register.
From the Franklin Repository.
It is with deep regret we have to inform,
the public, that the notorious thieves and
robbers, JOHN NMYERS and FELIX M'GUIRP,
have a second tie escaped from the prison
of this place! Myers it seems, by some means
had obtained an auger, and on Thursday
night last he bored or cut out the lock of his
door-then having found means to open M'-
Guire's room, they descended from the up-
er story, through a small hole or trap door
n the floor of a room occupied as a work
shop, into the women's apartment, the door
of which (leading into the yard) was not
ocked. From that yard, w th the aid of
heir blankets and an iron hook, they suc*
needed in getting over the wall.-The hole
n the floor of the workshop is artfully cut
'ut under a cupboard in the corner of the
oom, and has the appearance of having been
lone a considerable time bince,

Adjourned on T'uesdav morning last, a'wl
concluded a session of one hundred andl
twenty da-v,,at which were passed one hun-,
dred and mixtv five .et;s and ten Resnolitimos.,
Thirty live ofl these acts are of a public na-
ture, in the strict sense: and inany of them
ofa most important character.
The first act of this Legislature was to
fedtice the salaries of trhe Governor and Se-
cretary of the Cominoniwealth. Altho' we
donot conceive that -ona .strict construe-'
';tion of tihe Constitution there isanv thing to
prohibit 1he passage of an act reducirs then
-sal.ry of the Governor, yet the police% ofl
such a proceeding and its accordance with lice
genius of our government, are-very much to,
"be cuetestinijed. If, after the election, but
tbefiire the indutctiun into office, ol'a Govern-,
or, (lie Legislature can reduce'-his salary'
thirteen hundred dollars, they can reduce it
five thousand; and if they call reduce the sa-
larv during' tihe internal between the election.
and the induction of the Governor, they can
also incr'ea-e it: andi thcos4ture Legislatures
ha e a precedent for the exercise of'apower,"
by w'viich a rnan of a moderate estate, who
is ellet ted Governor. may be driven from
t ficc bv a majority of lho-rile members iin the
legislative branch; an'd a majority oil'fi iendly
numbers may, upon the sa-eile ir'inciple, in-
crease thie compensation lof a fIv iirite G(o-
vernor two or ten fold what it is at present.
Theact, inm this point of view, appear's to be
of dangerous tendency.
But thi, is a government of the people.
and their known sentiments s ought to pre-
piodleraite in tihe enactinent of la-,vS, unless
there i a p,..i tive coii.stitutional prohibitioci;
and on this ground the alt in question ought
to have been passed. .'"

been raised by the professions of the late ad-
ministration,: ha:id been, as' every reader.
knows, disappointed last winter, ;nder the
pre'\t otf a, ,td rf ftin/ie' to pass it through
the Seuiite: a j.reti,'t flimsy enough, when
-that body lhad it upwards o two weeks in"
their possession; The friends of the admin-
istratiun who constituted a majority in the'
House of Representatives the present ses-
sion; and who were convinced that this act
was called for ic, tli 'oi-,' of thle people and
the best ir iterestis of the State, wire deter-
mined that there should not be the same pre-
text for its failure this year in the Senate,
whei'e the enemies of ~the administration
still possessed the majority; and therefore
urged the bill upon the Hous., ai:ccinplisii-
ed its pans.,ge through that body, and sent
it to tlhe-.benae as early ,|s the :!i -t ,ii Fcb-.
ruary. Thus no loop idhle was. left tobr those

Thi..att appropri.it',s -1,000 dollar, ti the
improvewiMent of the Siate, nri-d thi, is so
distributed that a p,,rfion of it will be ex-
pended in each ciuntr. According to the
thourv of the friend, l;nta Lian Office, the 1mo-
nev .appropriated to internal improie'nents
will pay eih.,ht or even twenty fiour millions
?of-debt.. -l'hese said, every hitndred dollar-
loanledAto the citizens would piy ten and
sunti'nimi's thirty times that amount of debt;
and this 314.006 dollars beine put into the
hands of tho'e who have embibarra-ed them-
s'lves by engagingin .public works, and being
di-burcsed upon new turnpi!;s" & state ro.iids,
and for clearing the rivers, will ;ia*c at least
as lir a chance of quick circulatiui." ut
beside this, the Stl guarantees the pay-
ment annually, if tolls and lotteries prove-
inadequate, o'f.six per cent interest, for Zj
years, 'to ne:n siltcribclrs ti thi stock of the
UTnion Canal-for Ihich by the bye the state
is to be secured by the transfer o1' stock to
..the amount pf interest paid--which guarati-
tee will most probably occasion that stock to
be readily taken up and a further sumi of
450,0il0 dollar, t>o he thrown into-circula-
tiin. Whethlir- these sums havebbeen judi-
ciously appropriated 6r otherwise, is. ireima-
terial as re.'ards their effect in relievin' the
di-tre-s lhilchi would have been relieved by.
the Loan Ortifce; and their aggregate is near-
Tlyequalto the amount of circtilaing medium
that a Loan Office would iave supplied. And
there is ton de''eption in this measure, where
the Stte assumes the debt created, and asks
not fi.r pavnimeii; but with a Loan Office the
faith of the State would have been pledged
Ior the debt, whLile theie ,was no serious ex-
pectation of her borrowers-ever makingre-
'payment. But it is not/ in this light alinme
that the iinproiiement act in to b, hailed as

from enterprising neighborss, and d,,ect it

Governor Hiestei has thus far fulfilled the
just expectations of the people. In his ap-
pointments to office, which have been made-
from all parties, he has given the utiequi\,i-
cal evidence of a sincere desire to consult
the public'interest, and the public wish. The
duty which devolved on him, of making the
necessary selections to. office, has been ex-
tremely onerous, and must, without doubt,.
have been unpleasant. It. was however a
duty imperative on him, and from which he
did not shrink, A. ,. 'flti, so far as we
hear, his appointments have given pretty
general satisfaction. The principle of RO-
T'.li'iON required a change of men;.and in
obeying its behests, the governor seems to
have acted according to tliebest lightsbefore
him.-It remains now for time and trial to
decide on the practical fitness of the several
officers by him appointed, in pursuance ot
the public wish. If these shall prove any
of his appointments unfortunate, there is no
doubt but he will be prompt to repair, by an
immediate change, those possible evils which
could not be foreseen. Pursuing the steady
and independent course; which he has, itt
the main, so far adopted, governor Hiester-
will answer, we repeat, the expectations of'
the people; he will deserve the favorable es
timation of every uinprejudiced mind, and he
will not do discredit to the well earned hon-
ors of his early life.
When we say gov. Hiester has given sa-
tisfaction, for'the most part, we of course do-
not include those who have been disappoint-
ed in' their views of office. 'Even these we
believe, are satisfied for the most part.-Yet
it is not at all surprising that one or two of
thiis'numerous class should have become his
enemy since, if indeed they were not before.

GEOGRAPHY AND SOIL OF FLORIDA.
This country, as ceded to the United
States, by the recent ratified treaty with
Spain, has the Atlantic ocean, and Bahama
-channel to the east; Florida or Cuba chan-
nel south; the Gulf of Mexico west and
south-west; Perdido Bay and river west;
fand Alabama and Georgia to the north.
Florida has an exterior limit on the
Atlantic ocean, between the mouth
of St. Mary's river and Cape Sable,
Upon the Gulf of Mexico between
Cape Sable and the inlet of Perdido,
Interior limits; with Alabama, up
the Perdido, and to the 31 N. lat.
Along Alabama and N. lat. 31S, to
tie right bank of Chatahooche rivet',
Thence with Georgia, down Chata-
hooche to the junction of that stream
and Flint river, -
Thence to the source of St. Mary's
Down the St. Mary's to the mouth,
Having an outline of -
Jrea--54,600 square miles, equal to thir-
ty-four millions nine hundred and forty-four
thousand acres. Of this superficies, there
lies south of N. lat. 300, 39,900 square miles,
-25,536,000: acres; and north of N. lat. 30,
14,700 square miles, 9,408,000 acres.
Extreme south, N. lat. 05 nearly; ex-
treme forth, N. lat. 31S; and possessing a
range of 6 degrees of latitude.
The soil of Florida is divisible into three
grand varieties; pine barrens, savannahs and
marshes. Other varieties have been given
by some authors, but are mere shades of ad-
mixture, or points and lines of contact be-
tween the three foregoing. Pine forest land
here, as elsewhere, is remarkable for its
sterility in the production of the domestica-
ted species of plants, though productive in
an indefinite variety of indigenous vegeta-
bles. The soil of thle pine woods of Florida
is, p'vlip-t, as sandy as in any other part of
the United States. A ridge of dry, and in a
great part of unwooded hills or hillocks, des-
titute of water, extends from Eokefanoke
Swamp, to an unknown distance southward,
west bf St. John's and Nassau rivers. This
bridge, no doubt sinks into the common level
of t1he country before reaching the cape; or
perhaps even the latitude of 27.8.
Savannah, or prairie land, in Florida, is in
strictness mere varieties of swamp. The
former is, indeed, part of the latter, with ele-
vation sufficient to admit culture without ar-
tificial drainage. Thie prairie grounds of
Florida, being composed of so great a part
of animal exuviTe, are generally productive,
but are confined in extent. Their nature
will appear more clear by reference to our
description of St. John's river.
Swamps or marshes, next to pine woods,
cover, the largest portion of Florida. A
small share of these flat regions may be re,
claimed, but the far greater part being mo-
rasses, are beyond the ordinary powers of
human melioration. On some points of
.consideration the Florida swamps may be
con-idhrel al able: they are in many pla-
ces'c er.:d ith ecellenttimber, and where
if proper tenacity would afford good grazing
Another variety of soil occurs in Florida,
called hammock land. This species forms
in most instances an. interval between the
pile tracts and the marshes or savannahs,
a. -: indeed in no respect differs from the lat-
ter, except in being covered with wood.
The hammock land, not only of Florida, but
of all the southern section of the United
States, yields, next to river alluvion, the best
arable soil.-In Alabama, Georgia, and Mis-
sissippi, the hammock lands form much the
largest part of the cultivated firface. ,The
quality of the soil alternates from that of sa-
vanna1. and river alluvion, to that of the most
unproductive pine barrens. Bay galls, or
wet spongy parts, very frequently deterio-
rate hammock land. This inccoavenience
is lessened by .a slight, and removed by a
considerable inclination of surface.
To those who visit Florida with hioh rais-
ed opinions in favor of its natural advanta-
ges, much disappointment is in store; but
those who commence aa examination of this
country with expectations to meet with no-
thing but sterility, will not be less but more
agreeably disappointed than the former
cfass. In a space so extensive, and with a
climate so mild, many spots have con-
centrated all the rich features of a tropi-
cal physionacmy. When it is considered,
them a constitution on his return. It is said
the Austrian army has advanced in three di-
visions upon Naples. The particulars of this
information will be found under the pro-
per dates.-It will be perceived that the
vague report of the advance ofthe Austrians,
brought by the last arrival, was, as we cAn-"
ectured, entirely unfounded.-An interest-
ing debate on the affairs of Naples, of which
we shall give some account, took place in
the House of Lords on the 10th.
Although the iinpirtant intelligence rela-
tive to the descent of ihe Austrian arnmv
upon Naples, as contained in previous ad-
vices, is not officially announced, and there-
by rendered certain beyond a doubt, yet
there is good reason for believing it to be
correct. The "HOALY ALLCAXE." formed
to maintain the peace of Europe, will there-
fore have taken the first steps to involve the
powers of the continent in a ret:aliatorv and
sanguniary war, as it cannot be supposed
that Naples will ingloriously submit to the
dictation of foreign sovereigns.
Their Journals now sustain a firm and re-
solute tone. They state that 400,000 Nea-
politans are already in arms in defence of
their country. If (say they) the Swiss and
the Americans, in far less numbers, could
resist Austria and England, shake off their
yoke, and maintain their own independence,
the Neapolitans will be able to do as much;
and will shew to the whole of Europe, that
seven millions of inhabitants will suffer no
dictation respecting the laws by which they
are to be governed.
The affairs of the Queen remain much in
the same state as at last dates. There is
evinced by the ministerial party in parlia-
mnent, a disposition to deprive her majesty
of what are considered her just rights, al-
though no intention is expressed of any ad-
ditional measures of persecution.
Mention is made, in Spanish papers of 2d
Feb. of the discovery of a plot at Madrid to
overthrow the existing government, which
hJad created considerable agitation. Print-
ed handbills of a seditious character had
been distributed, the authors of which were
detected and arrested. It is possible that
this has given rise to the paragraph contained
in the Courier, informing of a general insur-
rection at Madrid. [Boston Patriot.

It will consist of four numbers of eighty-four
large duodecimo pages each; to be handsomely
printed on fine medium paper, and delivered to
subscribers neatly stitched for tent y cents per num-
ber; each number to be delivered in succession as
soon as printed. The neat and perspicuous man-
ner in which the rules are given, and the methods
of calculation shown, will, he hopes, fully recom-
mend it to all competent judges as one of the best
systems of Mercantile Arithmetic yet published.
He therefore confidently trusts, that a generous
public will lend him their patronage to assist him
in laying before the public a work which will be
highly useful to men in business, and if put into
the hands of youth, cannot fail of vastly facilita-

sci-nces, in a proper and legitimate manner. The
opinions of several literary gentlemen of the first
respectability in New York, Philadelphia and Bal-
timore, who have examined his work in manuscript,
confirm him in the above belief.
The inhabitants of Harrisburg will be called up-

to forward their names and places of residence to

JAM.ES ALRICKS, Clerk;
For publishing in the borough of Vork, a new
weekly paper, to be called the
THE friends of reform ii n ,Ylk County,
felt, during" the last political contest, the Want
of a newspaper which should advocate their
cause; they had no such paper. And altho'
much was effected by individual exertion,
and much by the silent march of public opin-
ion, yet more might, unquestionably, have
been done in the great cause of refoimi had
these exertions been quickened by the stimu-
lus of a well conducted public journal. "
It is to supply this deficiency-it is to pre-
vent being placed in a similar situation, on
any future occasion, that this proposal is of-
fered to the public consideration. The wish
seems general among the friends of reform
throughout the county, that a newspaper,
true to the cause of reform and independent
republicanism, should be established in York;
and it is in pursuance of the full and free ex-
pression of this wish, that the proposed pub-
lication is about to be. undertaken.
The INDEPENDENT REPUBLICAN will ac-
knowledge no other classification of parties,
than that exhibited at the late general elec-
tion. It .witl judge men by their actions, and
not by their political names. This is the on-
ly judicial standard, as well in politics as
morals, and the Ihdependent Republican will
at ill 'times welcome criticism, whether on
itself or others, which shall be in unison with
To maintain the ground already gained; to
"advance still further the interests of'the peo-
ple;" to vindicate the conduct and character
,of the real friends of the state, from unmerit-
ed censure; and to advocate reform, wherever
it may be found necessary, as well as a reduc-
tion 'of fees and salaries to a standard commen-
surate with the times, will be among the pri-
mary duties of the Independent R, publican.
In the faithful and free performance of these
duties, and whatever others it may owe, as a
centincl of public right, the proposed! publi-
cation shall not be f.u..d 'wanting. It will not
patterr in a double sensic" when the best in-
terests of the people aie at stake; nor will it
desert their s.,ndl ni, in :he hour of peril, and
seek shelter from their indignation under the
'shadow of a name." In a word,-the Inde-
pendent Republican will, in all things, endea-
vor(to prove itself the real friend of the people;
and so far as it shall be found so, and no far-
ther, does it court their appiobation or claim
Independent ofits political character, it is
expected to render the proposed publicatioti
an object of miscellaneous inter, st.
The INar-PEM)N-r REPUBLICAN will
be published on a super- royal sheet, with
a new and handsome type, at the rate of Two
Dollars per annum..
N. TR. The first number will be issued the be-
ginning of April.

R' ANAWAY from the subscriber, living in Fred-
erick county, Maryland, near New Market, on the
night of the 24th of June last,
A negro man nalned JIM,
who commonly calls himself James Day. Jim is a
dark mulatto, about 19 or 21 years of age, about 5
feet 5 or 6 inches high, light legs and thighs, has a
down look when spokerto, has large mouth, a
good set of teeth, and a scar on the forehead and
one on the breast, about the middle as well as re-
collected. Said fellow stole ahorse out of the sub-
scriber's stable, on which he made his escape; the
horse has since been found. He will no doubt en-
deavor to obtain a pass, and by that means make
his escape to Pennsylvania, as he was traced to the
neighborhood of Woodsborough where his- father
now lives as a freeman and was set free by the late
Nicholas Randall of this county, of whom the above.
fellow was purchased in March last. He can spell &
read tolerably well and took with him several books.
JUis clothing, as well as can be recollected, was, a
fine brown cloth coat half worn, a pair of light cloth
pantaloons, a new fur hat with a small brim, and
some clothingmnmade, amongst which were, a pat-
tern for pantaloonsand roundabout of plaid cotton.
Whoevei will apprehend the said fellow and se-
cure him in any jail, so that the subscriber gets him
again, iftaken in the state of Maryland, or any other
state except Pennsylvania. shall receive fifty- dol-
lars, and if Pennsylvania, the above reward, and all
reasonable expenses if brought home.

last most frightful disorders I have for a long time
promised to communicate to the public; birt as
most of the cures introduced to the .public through
the medium of newspapers, are clothed with pa-
tent nostrums which designate the quack, I have
neglected it. If I effect a cure, my prices are not
so high as to enveigle the avaricious, nor so low as
to exclude all but the professed from a iparti=ipa-
tionin them. From the most pleasing and success-
ful practice of them, not only in Europe and among
the Indian tribes in this country, but also in eight
of the United States of America, and obtaining
eight medical licenses to practice therein, he war-
rants as above mentioned, viz: If his direction are

mankind at heart, and if' this public information
can be of use in preserving life, especially in these
last mentioned most deleterious disorders, lie shall

United States, and for which singular favor, not on-
