VALUABLE AND EXTENSIVE PROPER-
TY FOR SALE.-The subscriber offers for sale her
valuable real estate in Monongalia and Harrison counties,
Virginia, on the Tygart Valley river, 22 miles above Morgan-
town, and 87 by land from Pittsburg, Pa., consisting of about
6,000 acres of land, including the celebrated Great Valley
Falls. The lands bound the Valley river on both sides for
nearly 12 miles above the Falls, and lI miles below the upper
Falls, and are covered with white oak and poplar timber of a
quality and quantity probably not surpassed, if equalled, by any
in the United States. Inexhaustible beds of Stone Coal, con-
sisting of three strata, one of which is nine feet thick, and an
abundance of the best quality of Iron Ore, which can be pio-
cured and conveyed with less expense than probably from any
other land in the States. The iron ore can be loaded in boats
out of the banks and the bed of the river, and conveyed to any
point desired. On this estate are several improved farms,
which are now cultivated on shares, the produce of which
is used by the workmen and their families at the Falls, as also
for the support of the teams at the mill, &c.
The improvements at the Falls are: A Canal, cut out ofa solid
rock, 150 yards long, 20 feet wide and 4 feet deep, making a
water power inferior to none in the United States, and superior
to any in the Western Country-there being a perpendicular
fall of 22 feet, and a constant supply of water the year round,
sufficient to drive at least 24 pair of mill-burrs, with their ne-
cessary machinery. Also, a Railroad 1k miles in length, ex-
tending from the pool above the falls to the pool below the ra-
pids, at the head of navigation. One Saw-mill, in first rate or-
der, 80 feet long and 30 feet wide ; 2 sets of saws, 1 butting-
saw, and all the necessary fixtures for sawing steamboat tim-
her, and all other kinds suitable for the neighborhood and the
lower trade. Eight Dwelling-houses, Store-house, and Black-
These lands secure all the valuable water-power extending
frome4ha..upper falls to the foot of the rapids, there being 100
feet of fall in a distance of 1k miles. The Valley river is 150
yards wide about the falls, and is nearly a slack-water naviga-
tion for 12 miles up, and a good down river navigation from the
railroad to Pittsburg, boats and iaits now running out with every
About 53 acres of land of this estate are situated 12 miles be-
low the falls, and were purchased particularly for a steamboat
yard and the building of other bouts, there being an eddy of A
of a mile long, very deep at all stages of water, and known as
the celebrated Morgan Eddy.
It has recently been discovered that these lands contain ma-
ny valuable minerals; such, in addition to the above enumerat-
ed, as Lead, Copper, Silver, and Chrome, specimens of which
can be seen at the residence of the subscriber, which, by a
course of analyzation, may prove to be extremely important.
It is expected that the State of Virginia will improve the navi-
gation down to the Pennsylvania line, to connect with the im-
provements now in progress by the Monongahela Navigation
Company. The Virginia State Engineer is now reviewing the
Valley river for the purpose of ascertaining the practicability
and the whole cost of the same.
To companies desirous of embarking in the coal, lumber, iron,
and mining business, this is far the most healthy and desirable
situation in the Western country, or perhaps in the United States,
surrounded'by the most fertile land in Western Virginia, at the
head of a navigation of more than two thousand miles in extent.
The Northwestern Turnpike of Virginia passes through these
lands five miles above the falls, leading from Winchester to
Parkeriburg, on the Ohio river. The Middleton and Wheel-
ing Turnpike, locating from the Northwestern Turnpike at the
Tygart's Valley River Bridge to Wheeling, passes down the
river directly past the falls. The quality and abundance of
stone coal, iron ore- and other minerals, and quantity and qual-
ity of timber, together with the superior natural advantages for
manufacturing the same, are inducements sufficient to encou-
rage capitalists to purchase, and make one of the most profita-
ble investments that has been offered in theWestern country.
An indisputable title will be made, and possession given at
such a time as may be agreed upon. Persons disposed to pur-
chase would do well to examine the property and judge for
For particulars address or call upon E. W. TOWER, Esq.

VALUABLE PROPERTY FOR SALE IN
ARKANSAS.-3,000 acres of Cotton Land, and 100
This estate lies in Phillips county, in the State of Arkansas,
and is situated in Walnut bend, on the Mississippi river, twen-
ty-five mrles above the town of Helena-said to be the highest
river land in that region of country. It was upon this land that
the neighbors around drove their cattle to get food, and to save
them from the high waters of the year 1828. There are six
hundred acres cleared, and a portion of it has been cultivated
in corn two years, which has put it in excellent condition for
cotton the present year; for the, growth of which the soil is
peculiarly well adapted. The improvements are, an Overseer's
house, a first-rate Horse Mill, and fifteen good quarters forser-
vants. The clearing an the rest of the land is far easier, (the
worst having been gone through,) being less timbered, and most
of that Ash, which is rendered very valuable for its ready sale
at a well-located wood-yard, where several thousand cords may
be sold during the year. The Negroes were settled on the lan-
in the autumn of 1836, and are now considered acclimated.
Out of the hundred, there are seventy-six working hands,
young, strong, and healthy, nearly equally divided as re-
gards sexes. Among them are carpenters, shoemakers, and
several good house servants. They are said, by judges, to com-
pare with any lot of Negroes that have ever been sent to the
Southern country. They have one great advantage over most
Negroes, a desideratum seldom to be met with in so large a
number, viz. that they have not been collected from various
places, but are in families, and have been raised together.
Por terms apply to JAMES KENT, near Pig Point, Anne
Arundel county, Maryland, or to JOSEPH KENT, who re-
sides on the premises. Letters for Joseph Kent should be di-
rected to Helena. feb 28-3t&wcptf
L AND FOR SALE.-The subscriber, wishing to re-
move to the West, offers for sale a desirable farm on
which he now resides, situated in Prince George's county,
Maryland, about four miles north of Bladensburg, and one mile
west of the railroad leading from Washington city to Baltimore,
it being part of a tract called Swowden's Discovery and part
of Friendship, containing together 188k acres, more or less, of
good and improvable soil, adapted to the growth of corn, tobac-
co, wheat, rye, and oats, with a sufficiency of wood and tim-
ber, a promising young orchard of apple and other fruit trees
now in full bearing, and one hundred apple trees planted out this
Spring; there is on the above premises a new and convenient
dwelling-house, one story and a halfhigh, two rooms and a pass-
age below and two rooms above, together with kitchen, corn-
house, smoke-house, stables, tobacco house, thrashing-house,
dairy, and an excellent spring of water within one hundred yards

CHOICE AND VALUABLE REAL ESTATE
FOR SALE.-The subscriber offers at private sale
the very desirable property hereinafter mentioned, and will
receive proposals for the same, or either of the portions thereof,
until the 20th day of July next. Meanwhile, those disposed to
purchase will have an opportunity to make the necessary ex-
aminations, and, for which purpose, on application, due infoi-
mation and facilities will be given.
Such part as may not then be sold or otherwise disposed of,
will be offered at public auction, at such time and place as will
then be designated by public notice.
Description of the Property.
No. 1. A small compact farm, beautifully situated, containing
110 to 120 acres, now occupied by Mr. David Shoemaker. It
is about half a mile beyond Tenallytown, fronting on the River
road from that place, and adjoining the farm of Mr. Samuel
Shoemaker. The land lies gently undulating, beyond a level;
is welL watered; its soil, originally good and rich, has be&tn
preserved by careful use and culture. About one-third is in a
fine body of wood and timber, adjacent te the road. The resi-
due, which is arable, is generally in fine order and cultivation.
No. 2. Another small farm adjoining, similarly situated, ex-
cept that it is off from the public road, but easy of access there-
to; containing 110 to 120 acres, now occupied by Mr. Isaac
This land, also, like No. 1, lies gently undulating, but with
bolder swell; is well watered; and its soil, originally good and
rich, has also been carefully preserved. About one-half, say
50 to 60 acres, is in fine wood and timber. And the residue,
which is arable, is generally in fine order and cultivation.
As regards locality, soil, salubrity, &c. few situations can be
found, for small farms, more eligible than Nos. land 2. Those,
however, desirous to purchase, will examine for themselves.
If the size and extent be less than might be desired by some,
the two would unite well together.
No. 3. Dalecarl a, late the residence of Clement Smith, and
now occupied by his family, containing about 300 acres
It is about 31 miles from Georgetown, lies opposite the Little
Falls of Potomac, and borders on the Chesapeake and Ohio
canal; and by which it is approachable as well as by the public
road. The land lies boldly undulating; is well watered, and the
soil generally good and fertile. About one-third of it is in fine
wood and timber, occupying its entire eastern margin. TCme
other two thirds are arable, and the greater part of it in good
tilth, and in fine order and cultivation.
The improvements are, a good convenient brick dwelling,
rough-cast, with stone barn, stables, and all convenient out-
buildings, and a fine young orchard of fruit trees.
The romantic scenery and prospects of this farm, and its great
natural advantages, tender it not only a delightful, but an advan-
tageous country residence.
No. 4. A valuable site for a mill or for a manufactory, at the
junction of the Falls branch with the Chesapeake and Ohio ca-
nal, adjoining farm No. 3.
The stream is lively, steady, and of ample power. The fall
from the race to the canal is near 90 feet, thus furnishing the
advantage, by successive gradations, for a repetition of its use
in manufacturing some five or six times. The sites for such es-
tablishments and buildings abound with the materials for their
construction, in extensive quarries of stone ofchoice quality.
Some ten to fifteen acres of land, convenient for the purpose,
are attached to the site.
Having reference to its locality and to its power, which may be
applied to such diversified uses for manufacturing purposes, few
situations can be found for an extensive establishment of that
kind more eligible.
No. 5. Consists of three valuable quarries of building stone,
fronting upon the canal, considered amongst the best brought
to this market. Their respective fronts upon the canal will be
about 200 feet each, and extend back about 100 feet.
No. 6. A farm, lying between the Fredericktown Turnpike
and the River Road, now occupied by Mr. Greenfield, and esti-
mated to contain near 100 acres.
It is about half a mile beyond Tenallytown ; its southern
boundary is the District line, being in Montgomery county,
The land, originally good, has been long in culture, and
much worn. It is, however, handsomely situated, is of good
heart and foundation, is capable of improvement, and of becom-
ing, with good management, of much real value.
No. 7. A lot on the Fredericktown Turnpike, nearly adja-
cent to Tenallytown, and contains about 60 to 70 acres.
No. 8. A lot, situated between the estate of Col. Pyle, (late
Mr. George French's) and the lot of Wm. Becraft, fronting on
the Fredericktown Turnpike'about 1,200 feet, and lies nearly
adjacent to the Heights of Georgetown. The greater part of
the land is nearly level. It is covered with wood, mostly of
young growth, consisting of white and black oak and black
jack. There are about 70 acres; but, if desirable to purchas-
ers, will be subdivided into two or three lots, each having a
front on the public road.
Nos 9 and 10. Two lots adjoining the western boundary line
of Georgetown, and immediately north of the grounds belong-
ing to the College. They are near the Fredericktown Turn-
pike, or High street, and very handsomely situated. Contain
about 80 to 90 acres each, the greater part of which (full three-
fourths) is in wood and timber, some of it very fine.
No. 11 Seneca Mills.-They are about20 riles fiom George-
town, near the mouth of Seneca Creek, and in the midst of a
fine grain country. The stream is powerful, constant, and stea-
dy, and competent to the performance of a large business in the
manufacture of flour, &c., the grinding of plaster, and the ad-
vantages of the saw-mill. About 50 acres of land will be sold
with the mills, if required.
No. 12. Springfield and the adjoining tracts, containing, to-
gether, about 1,200 acres. They are situated near Darnestown,
in Montgomery county, and between there and the Seneca
Mills. Distant from the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal 1 mile.
About one-third is in timber. The land lies well for farming,
and the entire tract will be sold in a body, or it will be subdivid-
ed into two, three, or four farms, as may best suit the desires
Supposing that those who may incline to purchase will ex-
amine for themselves, it has been deemed inexpedient to de-
scribe the property very minutely. That part of it which is
within or near the D:strict line is now, at this moment, under
survey by Mr. Carbery, designating the dividing lines and
boundaries, and furnishing an opportunity to such as may wish
correctly to understand them.
The greater part of the property can be delivered over in the
autumn, in time for seeding, and some of it immediately.
A proportion of the purchase money will be required in
hand. Upon the residue, a liberal credit will be allowed, tihe
punctual payments thlerefor being satisfactorily secured.
WALTER SMITH, Georgetown.
Besides the above, I will sell, at private sale, a number of
valuable lots in Georgetown, improved and unimproved, arind
some in Washington, unimproved, eligible situated.

RED SULPHUR SPRINGS, VIRGINIA.-The
Public are respectfully informed that the boarding esta-
blishment at this place is now prepared for the reception of vis-
iters, of which notice is given thus: early in reply to inquiries
from various sections of the United States. The improvements
having been largely extended since last season, and uncommon
pains having been taken not only to correct any defects or
abuses which may have crept in from inefficient management,
or other causes, but also to introduce every possible improve-
ment for securing the comforts of the guests, whether in pur-
suit of health or pleasure, the undersigned cannot hesitate to
promise that the accommodations shall equal those of ana other
establishment in the State. Ample supplies are provided; and
notwithstanding the great scarcity of provender in this country,
an abundance has been secured.
Mr. A. Gibson, assisted by Mr. R. Johnston and Mr. Weekes,
will be entrusted with the management, all of whom are advan-
tageously known to the Public. The best cooks, baker, ser-
vants, &c. have been selected from Philadelphia, Washington,
The bathing establishment will be remodelled and arranged
so as to supply the demands for baths of any temperature de-
sired. The water is conducted from the mineral spring and
yields a copious supply.
The virtues of the Red Sulphur water may be best ascertain-
ed from the numerous invalids who have derived benefit from
their use, and from the publications, at different times, made
by, disinterested persons. The following extracts are taken
from a pamphlet published by the lamented Doctor H. Huntt,
of Washington, who finally, became a victim to his zeal; after
having acquired an enviable fame in his profession :
"The Red Sulphur\Spring is situated in latitude 37 deg. 37 m.
in Monroe county, Va. about 20 miles southwest of Union, which
is the seat of justice for the county.
During my visit to the Red Sulphur, every day was devot-
ed to the investigation of the variousdiseases which afflicted the
visitors at that place; noting particularly the effects bf the water
in the different diseases.
The Red Sulphur water is decidedly sedative in its effects.
It subdues chronic inflammation, tranquilizes irritation, and
reduces the frequency of the pulse in the most astonishing
manner. It has been considered peculiarly adapted to the
cure of pulmonary diseases, and it is true that it has a most be-
neficial influence in most cases of this disease ; but its good ef-
fects equally extend to all cases of subacute inflammation,
whether, seated in the stomach, liver, spleen, intestines, kid-
neys, bladder,and most particularly in the mucous membrane.
"In fact, Nature never yet gave to man a remedy capable of
more extensive application, nor better calculated to relieve a
larger class of diseases." WM. BURKE,

IFREDERICK WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS.
The subscriber announces to the Public that this plea-
sant and delightful retreat will be opened on the Ist of June,
for the reception of company. Situated in the heart of the She-
nandoah Valley, it is the most easy of access of all the Virginia
Springs, placing the invalid from the seaboard as well as the
votary of pleasure, after a few hours' ride in a bracing moun-
tain atmosphere, in a neighborhood agreeable and proverbial
for its health, and but one mile distant from Cain's Depot on
the Winchester and Potomac railroad- where a public convey-
ance will always meet the cars ascending and descending-
and about five miles from Winchester.
This watering place, long and favorably known under the
name of Duvall's and Williams's Sulphur Spring, has been re-
sorted to by persons laboring under liver affection, and other
derangements of secretion, with the happiest effect. The effi-
cacy of the water, attested by numbers from the Atlantic cities,
to which it is so readily accessible, is believed to be equal to
that of any spring in Virginia.

ing from forty to fifty lodging rooms, well finished, besides a
large ball room, for which the best music has been provided ;
baths to suit the wishes of the visitors; and other improvements
to meet the extended reputation of the summer resort. Every

OCKBRIDGE ALUM SPRINGS.-The propri-
4 etors of the Alum Springs, grateful for the encourage-
ment which they have received in former years, notwithstand-
ing the unfinished stateunfinished state of their improvements, inform the Pub-
lic that their improvements are now so far completed that they
are prepared to afford comfortable accommodations to from
one hundred to one hundred and twenty boarders.
The Alum Springs are in Rockbridge county, Va. on the
road from Lexington to the Warm Springs, seventeen miles'
from the former and twenty miles from the latter place. There
is a good turnpike road across the mountain. Goodhacks can
be procured in Lexington, on moderate terms, to convey stage
passengers to and from these Springs.
ThIese waters, for the time they have been in use, have been
more celebrated than any mineral waters in Virginia, for*the
cure of dyspepsia, chronic diseases of the stomach and liver,
chronic diseases inreneral, and all kinds of cutaneous diseases.
They are said to be peculiarly efficacious in the cure of female
Several inveterate cases of scrofula have been entirely cured
by the use of these waters, and we believe that none have used
them for any length of time without deriving great benefit in
this hitherto almost incurable disease. Certificates to this ef-
fect would have been published in connexion with this state-
ment, had we not understood that Dr. Goode, of the Hot
Springs, was preparing for publication his opinion of the effects
of these waters in the cure of this disease, and had made appli-
cation to Mrs. Dickinson, of Millborough Springs, for her certi-
ficate to accompany his publication.
J. & A. H. CAMPBELL.
From the Rev. Henry Ruffner, D. D. President of Washing-
LEXINGTON; MAY 24, 1839.
I have been requested to certify my experience of the salu-
tary effects of the Alum Spring water. I have repeatedly
used it, and, besides the good effects upon my general health, I
found it peculiarly efficacious in dispelling cutaneous eruptions,
and promoting a healthy action of the skin. No other medi-
cine that I ever used had so remarkable a virtue in this res-
pect. HENRY RUFFNER.
From the Rev. A. D. Metcalf.
NEAR LEXINGTON, MAY 24, 1839.
Messrs. J. & A.CAMPBELL: Having for several seasons visited
your justly celebrated springs, and having uniformly derived
much advantage from the use of the water, I cheerfully add nimy
testimony to its virtues, both that other individuals may profit as I
have done by the use of the water, and that you may in some
measure be rewarded for the expensive improvements and ex-
cellent accommodations you have made and provided. My dis-
ease is chronic liver affection, accompanied with cough and
dyspepsia. The water uniformly appeals to the liver, with
gentle action on the bowels; improves appetite and digestion,
and produces a general tonic effect on the whole system. I feel
well satisfied that I am indebted, to a large extent, to the virtue
of the Alum Spring for a considerable portion of the health and
comfort I have enjoyed since I tried its efficacy. This state-
ment is at your disposal. Respectfully,
A. D. METCALF.
LEXINGTON, JUNE 6, 1839.
I do hereby certify that about the 1st of January, 1833, my
little boy, then about 4 months old, had an eruption on his head
and face, which is generally called 'milk rash ; it was very
troublesome, and continued to grow worse, spreading over the
upper part of his face. I used the prescriptions of one or two
practising physicians for several months without any visible re-
lief. About the Ist of May, I commenced the use of the Alum
Spring water, .'hiefly by outward applications, when the dis-
ease immediately began to give way, and in a very short time
was entirely cured without any inconvenience following after,
and the boy has continued well ever since.

THE POTOMAC PAVILION,
THE SUBSCRIBER respectfully informs his friends
and the Public that he has taken, for this season, this
popular Bathing Place, and that it was opened for the recep-
tion of Company on the 1st of June.
Piney Point, on which the Pavilion is situated, is clear, open
cape, (though wooded in the rear on the north and east,) jutting
into the Potomac near its mouth, where the river is eight or ten
miles wide, in full view of the Chesapeake bay. The bathing
is very fine, the water being nearly as salt as that of the ocean,
and the air as pure. It possesses the advantage of the greatest
abundance of the largest oysters, of soft and lard crabs, and all
the varieties of excellent fish with which the waters of the Che-
The proprietors have made very extensive improvements for
the accommodation and convenience of visitors. To the fifty
new Lodging Rooms opened last season, there has been added
a large new separate building, containing 28 Lodging Rooms,
affording, in the whole establishment, ample accommodation for
200 visitors. There are a spacious Ball Room, Billiard Room,
Bowling Alleys, Quoit Yards, &c., the whole fronting the river
to'the south, within a hundred yards of the clean white beach.
There are provided, also, two beautiful and commodious Yachts,
under the charge of an experienced and skilful seaman. There
are bathing houses for those who prefer them to the open surf;
also a substantial wharf for the steamboats to come up to, in-
stead of landing and taking off passengers in the small boats,
as heretofore ; which, moreover, enables visitors to bring car-
riages and horses, if they choose.
Besides the salt water luxuries above named, every thing will
be supplied for the table which the markets of the District, Bal-
timore, and Norfolk can afford, to which the steamboat lines
furnish regular access ; and the house w.ll be amply provided
with the best wines and other liquors.
The establishment has been well, though plainly, furnished
throughout, including new mattresses and bed furniture.
The steamers which ply between the District and Baltimore
and Norfolk furnish to the inhabitants of those cities regular op-
portunities foir visiting and departing from the Pavilion.
The subscriber has procured the aid of efficient and attentive
assistants for the Bar and other departments of the establish-
AItis determined that moderate charges shall constitute one
of the advantages of the establishment; to this s' all be added
the most zealous efforts to please, and the subscriber trusts that
these efforts, united to the experience acquired by him as keep-

satisfaction to all who may favor him with a visit.

JOHN ADAMS.-GEORGE III.
The account that Mr. ADAMS gave, in a letter
to a friend, of his introduction to GEORGE III,
at the Court of St. James, as the first Minister
from the rebel colonies, is very interesting.
At one o'clock on Wednesday, the 1st of June, 1785,
the Master of Ceremonies called at my house, and went
with me to the Secretary of State's office, in Cleaveland
row, where the Marquis of CAERMARTHEN received and in-
troduced me to Mr. FRAZIER, his under secretary, who
had been, as his lordship said, uninterruptedly in that
office through all the changes in administration for thirty
years. After a short conversation, Lord CAERMARTHEN in-
vited me to go with him in his coach to Court. When we
arrived in the antechamber, the M1aster of Ceremonies
introduced him, and attended me while the Secretary of
State went to take the commands of the King. While I
stood in this place, where ii seems all Ministers stand upon
such occasions, always attended by the Master of Ceremo-
nies, the room was very full of Ministers of State, Bishops,
and all other sorts of courtiers, as well as the next room,
which is the King's bedchamber. You may well suppose
I was the focus of all eyes. I was relieved, however, from
the embarrassment of it by the Swedish and Dutch Min-
isters, who came to me and entertained me with a very
agreeable conversation during the whole time. Some
other gentlemen, whom I had seen before, came to make
their compliments to me, until the Marquisof CAERMARTHEN
returned, and desired me to go with him to his Majesty.
I went with his lordship through the levee-room into the
King's closet. The door was shut, and I was left with his
Majesty and the Secretary of State alone. I made the
three reverences : one at the door, another about halfway,
and another before the presence, according to the usage
established at this and all the Northern Courts of Europe,
and then I addressed myself to his Majesty in the follow-
ing words :
'.SIRE: The United States have appointed me Minis-
ter Plenipotentiary to your Majesty, and have directed me
to deliver to your Majesty this letter, which contains the
evidence of it. It is in obedience to their express com-
mands that I have the honor to assure your Majesty of
their unanimous disposition and desire to cultivate the most
friendly and liberal intercourse between your Majesty's
subjects and their citizens, and of their best wishes for
your Majesty's health and happiness, and for that of your
The appointment of a Minister from the United
States to your Majesty's Court will form an epoch in the
history of England and America. I think myself more
fortunate than all my fellow-citizens, in having the distin-
guished honor to be the first to stand in your Majesty's
royal presence in a diplomatic character; and I shall esteem
myself the happiest of men if I can be instrumental in re-
commending my country more and more to your Majesty's
royal benevolence, and of restoring an entire esteem, con-
fidence, and affection; or, in better words, the old good
nature and the good old humor,' between people who,
though separated by an ocean and under different Govern-
ments, have the same language, a similar religion, a kin-
dred blood. I beg your-Majesty's permission to add, that
although I have sometimes before been instructed by my
country, it was never in my whole life in a manner so
agreeable to myself.'
The King listened to every word I said with dignity, it
is true, but with apparent emotion. Whether it was my
visible agitation, for I felt more than I could express, that
touched him, I cannot say; but he was much affected, and
answered me with more tremor than I had spoken with, and
Sir, the circumstances of this audience are so extraor-
. dinary, the language you have now held is so extremely
proper, and the feelings you have discovered so justly
adapted to the occasion, that I not only receive with plea-
sure the assurance of the friendly disposition of the United
States, but I am glad the choice has fallen upon you to be
their minister. I wish you, sir, to believe, that it may be
understood in America, that I have done nothing in the
late contest but what I thought myself indispensably bound
to do, by the duty which I owed my people. I will be
frank with you. I was the last to conform to the separa-
tion ; but the separation having become inevitable, I have
always said, as I now say, that I would be the first to meet
the friendship of the United States as an independent pow-
er. The moment I see. such sentiments and language as
yours prevail, and a disposition to. give this country the
preference, that moment I shall say, let the circumstances
of language, religion, and blood have their natural, full
I dare not say that these were the King's precise words ;
and it is even possible that I may have, in some particulars,
mistaken his meaning; for, although his pronunciation is
as distinct as I ever heard, he hesitated sometimes between
members of the same period. He was, indeed, much af-
fected, and I was not less so; and therefore I cannot be.
Certain that I was so attentive, heard so clearly, and under-
stood so perfectly, as to be confident of all his words or
sense. This I do say, that the foregoing is his Majesty's
meaning, as I then understood it, and his own words, as
nearly as I can recollect them.
The King then asked me whether I came last from
France, and, upon my answering in the affirmative, he put
on an air of familiarity, and, smiling, or rather laughing,
said,.' There is an opinion among some people that you are
not the most attached of all your countrymen to the man-
ners of France.' I was surprised at this, because I thought
it an indiscretion, and a descent from his dignity. I was a
little embarrassed; but, determined not to deny truth on
the one hand, nor lead him to infer from it any attachment
to England on the other, I threw off as much gravity as I
could, and assumed an air of gaiety and a tone of decision,
as far as was decent, and said, That opinion, sir, is not
mistaken; I must avow to your Majesty I have no attach-
ment but to my own country.' The King replied as quick
as lightning, An honest man will have no other.'
The King then said a word- or two to the Secretary of
State, which, being between them, I did not hear, and then
turned round and bowed to me, as is customary with all
kings and princes when they give the signal to retire. I
retreated, stepping backwards, as is the etiquette; and,
making my last reverence' at the door of the chamber, I
went to my carrile."-Hayward's N. E. Gazetteer.
A "YANKEE TRICK."
FROM THE BOSTON MERCANTILE JOURNAL.
For the public benefit, the noble acts of individuals
- should not be slighted; and with this feeling we con-
sider ourselves free to notice a rumor which has .just
reached us, from a source leaving no doubt ot its essen-
tial correctness. Our readers know that the Blind Asy-
lum has been moved to South Boston. They have
heard, also, of the great pleasure these children have in
their music. Their organ, therefore, has been an un-
speakable delight to them. But in the new establishment
this instrument has hitherto proved too small, or, for some
other, reason, it became necessary to get a new one. The
question was, how 1 The late concerts of the pupils were
held with this view, and did something; but it was slow
work at the best. In this state of things, one of the of-
ficers the other day met a Boston man-we shall say no
more of him-let his works describe him. Well, how
do you get on now Oh, verv well." "Nothing want-
ing ? I should like to do something for you, if there is."
The matter of the organ then came out. "'Well, get you
an organ made to suit you; spare nothing, and when the
bill comes in call on me for three thousand dollars; my
check shall be ready." It was suggested that this was
more than would be wanted. "Very well, then; do what
you like with the surplus; only don't let me be known in
RELIGIOUS BELIEF OF WITNESSES.
In the case of the Commonwealth vs. Israel Gates, be-
fore the Police Court of the city of Boston, Justice ROGERS
lately delivered the subjoined opinion of the Justices upon
the legal manner of interrogating witnesses with regard to
their religious belief. The subject is a very important one,
as the rights and duties of witnesses, with respect to reli-
gious belief, are not sufficiently understood.
BOSTON POLICE COURT, JUNE 25, 1839,
Commonwealth vs. Israel Gates.
Q questions having arisen in this and another late case,
respecting the incompetency of a witness for defect of re-
ligious principle in not believing in the existence of a God,
and concerning the manner in which this is to be proved,
and the same questions having arisen in the case of the
Commonwealth vs. Drew, respecting the incompetency of
the complainant for the like cause, and the manner of
f proof, it has been thought expedient by the Justices to con-
sider this question generally, and to settle the rule with
regard to the incompetency of a complainant, and the man-
ner of proof of the incompetency, both in the case of a
complainant and witness.
The question in this case was with regard to the incom-
petency of a witness, to whom it was objected that he did
not believe in the existence of a God.
The course of decisions, that a person who does not be-
lieve in the existence of a God is incompetent to be a wit-
ness because he is incapable of taking the oath required
by law, (except as a mere form of words without meaning,)
has been so uniform as to render a reference to authorities
altogether unnecessary. It has been a subject of frequent
discussion by individuals whether the law ought to be so,
but it has never been denied or doubted by any court that
it is so. It is not for-us to express any opinions concern-
ing speculative questions of expediency. Arguments of
that nature may be properly addressed to the Legislature,
who have power to alter the.law by statutes. But, con-
ceiving it only to be the duty of courts to declare what the
law is, we have no doubt that it is fully settled, by a long
and unvaried series of decisions, that a person who does
not believe in the existence of a God, and that he will pu-
nish offences either in this world or the next, is incompe-
tent to be a witness.
The next question, as to what amounts to a disbelief in
the existence of a God, is equally well settled in this Com-
monwealth, so far as regards the cases which have occur-
red in this Court. The question in each of these cases
was, whether the disbelief in any God, except Nature or
the Material Universe, is a disbelief in the existence of a
God. This was settled in the case of the Commonwealth
vs. Kneeland, (20 Pickering's Rep. 206.) The defendant
was indicted for a libel, and it was charged in the indict-
ment that he did wilfully blaspheme the holy name of
God by denying and contumeliously reproaching God."
The part of the libel relied upon to prove the charge was
in these words: Universalists believe in a God, which I
do not; but believe that their God (aside from Nature it-
self) is a mere chimera of their own imagination." This
denial of a God aside from Nature itself, was held to be a
denial of a God. If, therefore, a witness believes in the
existence of no other God, except Nature or the Material
World, he does not, according to this decision, by which
we are bound, believe in the existence of a God.
Another point, which has arisen in these cases, regards
the method of proof of the incompetence of a witness for
defect of religious principle.
It has been a practice to examine the witness himself
with regard to his religious belief, although it appears
doubtful whether he was held bound to answer. (1 Phill.
Ev. 206.) Upon this practice Judge Swift, in his Treatise
on Evidence, has the following remarks: If a case could
be supposed, where man has such a sense of the moral
obligation to speak the truth at all times, that he will, from
a regard to it, acknowledge that he disbelieves in the reli-
gious obligation of an oath, he would by that circumstance
be entitled to credit; and the consequence of this mode of
inquiry, where-it had any effect, would be, that the 'most
unprincipled men, who-ought not to be credited, would ne-
ver be excluded by it, and that none would be excluded
but those who had such a high sense of the moral obliga-
tion to speak the truth that they might safely be relied on.
But, to this mode of drawing out the opinions of men, there
are other very serious objections. A man's opinions are
matters between himself and his God, so long as he does
not disclose them." It is true that, in England, in mo-
dern times, there.have been a few instances where inqui-
ries of this sort have been made of a witness. But a prac-
tice so directly repugnant to principle ought not to be a
precedent here:" (Swift's Ev. 49, 50.) Mr. Christian says,
in his note on 3 Blackstone, 369 :" I have heard a learned
judge declare at Nisi Prius, that the judges had determin-
ed not to permit adult witnesses to be interrogated respect-
ing their belief in the Deity and a future state." The dis-
tinction, in this particular, between children and adults is
manifest. The questions put to children are intended to
discover whether they have sufficient capacity and educa-
tion to understand the nature of an oath, and not to find
out their religious belief. An inquiry into the capacity and
information of an individual is of course bstrmade byques-
tions put to himself; if he understands, the nature of an
oath, he will describe it; and there can be no mistake in the
decision, unless he feigns ignorance, which would be little
likely to occur. The objections to the examination of a
person respecting his religious belief, do not apply to an
examination into his capacity and information.
The method of examination into the belief of a witness
was considered in the case of Curtis vs. Strong, (4 Day's
Rep. 55.) The third ground of a motion for a new trial
in that case was, that the Court refused to inquire of a
witness respecting this, but permitted other witnesses to
testify to his declarations, at different times, of his disbelief
of the obligation of an oath, and of a future state of rewards
and punishments; and that, afterwards, when the first wit-
ness was offered to contradict these declarations, the Court
refused to permit him to be examined. Upon this point
the Court gave the following opinion: This method, we
believe, is the only correct method which could have been
taken. We have no other way to learn the opinions and
principles of men respecting any subject, but from their
own declarations respecting these opinions and principles.
But it is said that the Court have erred in not admitting
Robinson as a witness, to prove that the declarations testi-
fied to have been made by him were never made, and to
explain the conversations alluded to by the witnesses, and
it is.claimed that this is the English practice. We find no
authority to support such an opinion. It would seem to be
incongruous to admit a man to his oath for the purpose of
learning from him whether he had the necessary qualifi-
cations to be sworn. The objection is, that a person of-
fered as a witness can in no case be sworn, because he
does not believe in the obligation of an oath, or is an athe-
ist. It would be strange that a court should immediately
admit a man to his oath to ascertain this fact."
In the case of Jackson vs. Gridley, a witness objected
to for the same cause was admitted at the trial to testify as
to his belief in a God, and a future state of rewards and
punishments; and a motion for a new trial was made be-
cause he was so admitted. The Court, after expressing
their approbation of the case of Curtis vs. Strong, and the
remarks of Judge Swift, just cited, continue their opinion
in these words: The course pursued at this trial was to
admit the witness, on his declaration that he did not know
that he had any reason to doubt that there was an after
state of rewards and punishments," and to leave his credit
to the Jury ; and the learned Judge told the Jury that his
statement ought to be disregarded, as deserving no credit.
Now, it does appear to me, if the Judge was authorized to
say so, as I think he was, h'e ought not to have been ad-
mitted at all. It would be strange, if the law admitted a
man to be a witness, that the same law should declare he
was not to be believed on account of the obliquity of his
mind, and because he was incapable of being bound by any
religious tie to speak the truth. The very fact that such a
person possesses such an awful creed as to render him un-
worthy of credit, establishes that he should not be heard."
-(Jackson vs. Gridley, 18 Johns. Rep. 98.)
A case tried in the Circuit Court for this circuit supports
this view of the case, so far as it goes. The opinion of
Judge Story was, that a party was not bound to rely on the
testimony of the witness himself with regard to his religious
belief, but may call others to prove his incompetency.-
(Wakefield vs. Ross, 5 Mason, 19 )
Even if the reasons of the case were not so strong, great
respect would be due to these authorities. Both from argu-
ment and authority we are authorized to decide that no
man should be questioned with regard to those points of his
religious belief which may render him incompetent to be a

istence of a God, are at all incapacitated by their belief froni
holding these offices. Taking for granted that they are not
incapacitated, it will, nevertheless, be seen that the oath
taken by a complainant is of the same class with those tak-
en by witnesses, and not of the same class with those taken
The oaths taken by officers and jurymen are promissory
oaths. The oattk ofa juryman is that he will well and tru-
ly try," and of an officer that he will faithfully perform.'
The law regards the breaking these oaths as a breach of a'
promise of the most solemn and binding nature, but not as
perjury, (2 Russell on Crimes, 1754. Bac. Ab. Perjury, A.)
A juror breaks his oath by finding a false verdict, but it is
no perjury. (2 Hawk. P. C. c. 69, s. 5.)
The oath of a witness is that he will testify the truth ;"
and of a complainant that his complaint is true." Neither
of. these are promissory oaths, and if there are degrees in
this matter, the complainant's oath resembles a promise
less than that of a witness, both in form and fact, for it re-
lates to the past, and not to the future; to a complaint al-
ready made, and not to testimony still to be given. They
are both judicial oaths, and a breach of either of them is
perjury. The meaning, intent, and effect of both is the
same ; and there seems to be no reason why a person in-
competent to take the one should be competent to take the
other. But there is a reason why such a person should
not be permitted to be a complainant, which does not ap-
ply to a witness. The making of a complaint is volunta-
ry ; the Public do not require it by law, nor punish the
neglect or refusal by any penalty ; but a witness is com-
pelled to testify, and punished for neglect or refusal. The
law regards it as a duty, and does not leave it tothe choice
of the person whether he will perform it or not. If a wit-
ness, having personal knowledge of a fact, is excluded
from testifying, a person not having such knowledge can-
not supply his place; but no personal knowledge is requir-
ed of a complainant; any one who believes the fact to be
true may supply his 'place; so that less injury can arise
from excluding a complainant than a witness. Upon the
reason of the case there seems no doubt that the sarne re-
ligious disbelief will disqualify a complainant and a wit-
The authorities on this point are few, as it is generally
decided in courts whose decisions are not reported; but
those which can be found support this opinion. No man
in his time was better acquainted with the practice in cri-
minal cases in this State than the late Solicitor General
Davis. In his work on the duties of Justices the rule is
thus laid down : If the law requires an oath, a witness
who does not believe in any form of religion cannot be
sworn, and consequently the oath of such a person to a
complaint presented to a magistrate ought to be refused."-
(Davis's Jus. 19.) The same is the effectjof the doctrine
held in the case of Walker vs.jKearney, (2 Strange, 1148.)
An attachment was granted on affidavit of the defendant.
The other party objected that he stood convicted of forge-
ry. The opinion of the Court was, that they would not
suffer the affidavit to be read, and that there was a differ-
ence between that and Charlesworth's case, where the affi-
davit of one so convicted was read in his defence, which
even there, as it was held, could not be read to support a
complaint. If he could not be received as a witness (say
the Court in Walker vs. Kearney) in a'civil suit in which'
a third person is interested, a fortiori he could not be re-
ceived in support of a complaint." The same opinion is
expressed in 2 Starkie on Evidence, 723. We consider,
therefore, that the law is settled with regard to the gene-
ral principle, that one who is incompetent as a witness is
incompetent as a complainant, under the same circum-
But the rule with regard to persons incompetent to tes-
tify has exceptions. They may make affidavits of loss of
papers, or absence of witnesses, and other matters, to in-
troduce secondary testimony, or obtain a continuance.
They may also take the poor debtor's oath, and perhaps
may make an affidavit to hold to bail, although-there is a
decision to the contrary. Thus a motion was made to set
aside a judgment, which was supported by the affidavit of
the defendants, who had been convicted of an infamous
offence, but the Court permitted their affidavit to be read,
saying that they would otherwise be without remedy.
kDavis & Carter's case, 2 Salk. 461.) Whether the rea-
sons of these exceptions will extend so far as to permit a
person incompetent to testify to make a complaint for an
injury to himself, we are not now prepared to decide.
The question is not so important whether he cap be a com-
plainant, when injured, as whether he can be a witness in
such a case. He may always procure another to make a
complaint, though he could not always find another wit-
ness; and, in the latter case, any injury might be inflicted
on him in the absence of others, and he would be without
In these cases, when a person is permitted to testify who
would be incompetent in other cases, it is not the practice
of courts to decide that the witness is competent, but to
refuse to inquire into the question of his competency.
The result of the whole, with regard to the practice of
this Court, is:
1st. Not to permit a witness to be personally examined
respecting his disbelief in a God, or such a belief with re-
gard to rewards and punishments as will render him in-
2d. To permit his incompetency, for the reasons above
stated, to be proved by other witnesses, and to allow him
to produce witnesses to contradict them, or prove a change
of hrs opinions, but not to allow him to contradict them by
his own testimony.
3d. To apply this rule, according to th decision of the
Supreme Court, to those who believe in no God, except
Nature or the Material World.
4th. To apply these rules to complainants as well as to
witnesses; and as the defendant cannot make the objection
at the time of making the complaint, to permit him to do
this on the return of the warrant, and before pleading.
5th. Upon cases where the offence complained of is an
injury to the witness or complainant, we give no opinion.
UNFORTUNATE AND AFFECTING INSTANCE OF LOVE.-The
daughter of a country curate in Hampshire being reduced,
by the death of her father, to the hard necessity of seeking
some mode of subsistence, could find no other than going
into the service of an old female friend of her mother, as
her maid. EMELIA (that was her name) had received from
her parents the best education. She was handsome, had a
very pleasing figure, was sensible, discreet, and of the most
modest deportment. Unfortunately for her, a young gen-
tleman of good fortune, who was a friend of the family with
which she lived, frequently visited the house. The master
and mistress keeping only one footman, poor Emelia, who
generally assisted in serving the tea, had thus an opportu-
nity of seeing the young man, and fell in love with him
before she was aware of the progress of that sentiment in
her heart. When she did perceive it, her reason induced
her to oppose it, and she made many ineffectual efforts for
that purpose; indeed, so violent were her struggles, that
her health became seriously affected by them. Her mis-
tress, who loved her tenderly, after having consulted seve-
ral physicians in vain, sent her to the house of a friend at
twenty miles distance, to try whether change of air would
not be of service to her. The absence of the object of her
affection, no doubt, contributed to her recovery. She re-
turned to her mistress's; and, having the same opportuni-
ties of seeing the young man as before, her passion revived.
Firmly resolved to conquer or die, rather than give way to
an attachment that increased-in spite of her, she relapsed
into the most deplorable state of health. The physicians,
not being able to discover the cause of her disorder, thought
that she must be affected by some deep sorrow, and pro-
nounced her danger. Her afflicted mistress entreated her
to entrust her with the secret, and, to induce her to do so,
told her the danger she was in ; and promised not only not
to betray her confidence, but to do her utmost to obtain the
means necessary for her cure. Overcome by the affection
of her mistress, she acknowledged her passion, begged her
to conceal it from him who was the object of it; and re-
ceived with resignation the news of her approaching disso-
lution, which would at last deliver her from an unfortunate
passion that all her efforts had been unable to vanquish.
Her mistress could not help informing her husband of the
discovery. They agreed to sound the young man upon
the subject; and finding, by degrees, that he had observed
the merit of Emelia, they prevailed upon him to pity her
situation. He consented- asked to see her, (she being
previously prepared for it by her mistress,) entered into
conversation with her, testified the greatest desire to see her
health re-established; and even went so far as to say that,
if she could recover, he would be happy to marry her.
" Marry me!" cried she, raising her arms, and fixing her
eyes upon him, marry and, throwing her head back, she
SOUVENIRS OF BADEN.
The room was all lightness and brightness, and filled
with the well-limbed aristocracy of Europe. Having breast-
ed our way through the billows of well-dressed flirts and
their cavaliers, we get at length a glimpse of the Grande
Duchesse"-thinking of those Napoleon times in which
she made no inconsiderable figure-and truly a more re-
markable or interesting looking lady we have seldom
seen. She has all the fascinations possible to a very fine
woman no longer young, but determined to please to the
last. There sat she, with a smile for every body, (who had
a claim to it,) and a different one for each, assuming by
tuins every possible attitude of grace, and so happy in each
that they might have been taken as studies for the artist.
A more beautifully finished and highly-wrought piece of
mechanism than that countenanae was never worked by a
soul and intelligence within! I see her even now before
mo! sitting so lightly, and with so little apparent pressure
on the Ottoman at the head of that unequalled room, that
you might fancy it away, without depriving the fine form
of its artificial support. None could more look the goddess,
'or move the queen than she! Fixing the young men who
had the privilege to address her with a Dido look, half
queenly, half womanly, now animated and conversational;
now dispensing the well-measured smile in silence; anon
exercising a practised archness upon some timid maiden,
whose day of conquests was beginning ; surrendering her-
self with bewitching benignity to some tedious old countess,
or turning- half-closed eyes in hazy complacency (with suf-
ficient~ttention not to offend him) on some curiosity of the
ancient regime, who, for sixty years, had traded in court
compliments, and still claimed the privilege Dicere blan-
ditias cano capite." For readiness at repartee, few of the
fair sex can compete with her. I have something to
confide to your private ear," said a forward young cox-
comb, pushing himself forward while she was engaged in
conversation. "Something for my private ear! what can
he mean 7" Oh! je le tiens maintenant! c'est ses panta-
lors blancs, qu'il veut me confier"-(he had taken the lib-
erty of coining to her party in morning trousers!)
But hark! the first bars of the high orchestra are struck,
and the dancers are all on the start; already they swing by
us with a velocity which, when one is not an element of
the vortex, is really alarming. Waltz is the railroad of
dancing--the despair of turnpike. Let no awkward fellow
attempt this fascinating poetry of motion; it is not till the
two performers in the dance have got the perfect intelli-
gence of each other's capabilities that the gentleman ven-
tures to plant his hand fairly on the lady's corset; from that
moment of more intimate contact they appear to have but
one end and aim, one heart and one respiration! Every
advantage of space is for a time conceded ; the lookers on
contract it by degrees ; the centripetal-force, however, soon
overcomes the obstacle, and a fair stage for their evolutions
is once more secured. Gods! what a milky-way of fair
necks and bared shoulders is before us and how knowingly
provided are the danseuse for the perils of the evening's
whirl. You shall not see a single loose scarf; the rigging
is all taught from the mast-head downwards, and the petti-
coats shotted, to prevent the result of that inevitable law of
forces which sagacious ladies, or their mammas, know to
await them. But who are these? The Prince-- and
the beautiful Madame Vain as he is, he seems
now unconscious of spectators, and to think only of his
partner: the sardonic curl of his moustache softens down
into a less contemptuous expression for his fellow-creatures;
the full smile of undisguised satisfaction is breaking down
all aristocratic barriers, and dissipating apace whatever
was repelling in those superior features. It is Rinaldo
still, but Rinaldo in the garden of Armida, forgetful of
triumphs-all butthis! That bold, tender look-what mor-
tal woman can withstand it ? Nor does she affect to do so;
for not less impressive or effective is that air of abandon-
ment with which she resigns her Torso into his arms !
But the affair is becoming too conspicuous, too warm-the
modest young ladies toss their chins, and the old ladies'
fans aie going like so many windmills !
But what is that gawky, growing youth (too surely a
compatriot) about ? Look at his vacant face! He has but
to turn her, and his partner is ready enough to be turned,
and Jooks up to encourage him to do the deed, but all in
vain. He cannot catch the time; his heavy eyes exhibit
no soul! his ear is sealed to every thing of music but the
sound; his feet are under theguidance of a will, but that
will is plainly not under the guidance of harmony ; as sure
as he makes a start, it is a false one! See how he throws
her out, just as she is beginning to spin off: again a third
time, and now they are at a dead stand still! She begins
to flounce; well she may! She has not answered his last
question, and looks at him in a manner which her prayer-
book. would not justify. One more trial! one, two, three!
one, two! anL off is he thrown at a tangent from the circle
he would vainly enter. Besides, he has trodden on her
corn-a smothered cry of pain escapes ,her; and here she
comes, whilst her awkward beau follows to proffer unwel-
come assistance, and be scared away by the sotto voce con-
dolence of her friend: Was ever any thing so cruel or
preposterous as for a young man to stand up to waltz who
does not even know what it means? Why, you have lit-
erally had to hold him up, as if he were a stumbling pony !
It is indeed provoking, but why did you stand up with such
a He hears no more, but we do. Don't talk any
more about that fright!" says Emily, rising gaily to a new
partner, who has already acquired, by dint of moustache,
er good opinion; and she was right. One of those inde-
fatigable dancers was he, who give spirit to a ball-room,
who can keep the heaviest party afloat by the legeretf of
their own movements, and prevent the whole equipagee"
from being swamped by the assiduity with which (a leak
detected) they can work their pumps! Five times has he
triumphantly carried his partner round the magic circle
formerly interdicted to her tread. Through all the entan-
gled and perplexing perils of the thickly sown floor does he
bring her without shock or collision. Whether in a scarce-
ly progressing step, or, taking advantage of some break,
they launch out mnre boldly, or thread the increasing la-
byrinth, his vigilant eye and ductile joints are equal to the
difficulty. All is as it should be, and speedily shall he ob-
tain, as the reward of his pilotage, the full and unreserved
guidance of thalmdvantageous taille.
But yonder is a young lady evidently as much a novice
as was our Anglo-Saxon in the twirling art. She seems-
as they all do when first they begin-she seems to feel a
waltz very much as if it were a sin ; she looks-as if she
were doing wrong-to her mother's eye for countenance
an support; but the old lady is at cards, and too intent on
the ,ame to notice her. Her partner obviously observes
her confusion, and smiles encouragement. She trembles;
thinks persons begin to look at her; he extends his hand,
she falters; he touches her person, her neck is suffused.
The initiation almost overpowers her; but, "ce n'est que
le premier pas qui coute, out she steps, and they are off In
a few minutes he has danced away all her scruples, and
has nothing more to do than receive her adroitly into his
arms, hope that she is not fatigued, and wonder what pos-
sible objection some people can have to waltzing To which
opinion she is now a proselyte. Of our own partner we
would willingly say something, but she is too fond of sheer
dancing to give us much time to collect materials. Every
body declared her pretty-pretty she was in an eminent
degree. On her suette person all epithet-adjectives of
grace, harmony, and good-humor, would sit without re-
proach or mistake. But she has taken our arm to waltz,
and so here goes! and glibly and smoothly do we sail
along. Oh! lassie, if you are always thus easy to turn, I
would stipulate for longer partnership than the brief one
we have contracted!

JOB v. 6, 7.
[FROM BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE.]
Blow on, blow on, thou soft and evening breeze !
The dim-seen bat around my head is wheeling ;
And stars are twinkling through the leafy trees,
And darker shadows o'er the waters stealing-
While thou art wandering on the pathless seas,
Where there are none to meet, oh soft and evening breeze
I see thee not-and yet I trace thy wing
On the slow rippling ocean, till it seems
My eye could shape thee forth a living thing,
Bright as e'er floated round a poet's dreams-
Sylph-like, with waving plumes and golden hair,
Fashioned as mortal man, and yet, as angel fair.
And yet thou art but one, and many more
Are dwelling with thee in the summer's sky-
Whose haunts are in the woods and murmuring shore,
Midst shades, where morning dews the latest lie-
Forms that do sleep.unseen in woodland vales,
And grots and mountain heights,where the lone eagle sails
Their feet are not as thine, but, blithe and gay,
O'er flowery lawns and flashing waters glancing,
Waking with songs the sleep of young-eyed day,
And linked hand in hand before him dancing-
Or, to a sweet and holy calm resigned,
Sailing above in air, on some lone cloud reclined.
Oh, blither far than thou Thy wing if slow,
Weary and flagging, as with wanderings long ;
And thy voice whispers wailings sad and low,
As sick with many a.sight of ill and wrong ;
And thou dost leave the land and seek the sea,
As if, oh never more earth and man's works to see !
Blow on, blow on, there spreads the ocean waste,
And waves to echo back thy weary moan-
Tracks which the'step of man has ne'ei defaced,
And isles that never heard a human groan ;
Where, on some coral beach, or spice-hung steep,
All pure and sinless dreams shall lull thy noontide sleep.
And we must linger here. Oh not for man
Wings, or the roaming of the pathless air,
Lest we should burst beyond our prison's span,
Sick'ning at earthly sin, and p in, and care,
And fly to some lone island, all apart,
To pour our love, and soothe our sad and weary heart.
For who would wait to hear the groans that swell
From this dark lazar-house of pain and death ?
Who sit with sorrow in its midnight cell,
Hanging to catch some loved one's dying breath ?
Who stand by yawning graves and desert homes,
Jf we might fly where pain and sorrow never comes ?
Alas thesun is bright, and the young earth
Springs up to hail it with a joyous lay ;
And the birds carol in their sinless mirth,
And we at times look up as blithe as they.
Oh that our eye alone should look beneath,
And see the ghastly skull out brightest blossoms wreathel
Oh that to us alone dimness should blend
With the blue sky, and passions wild, and fears,
Mar Heaven's own lay-and deepest gladness end,
E'en as our pains, venting itself in tears !
And we, like exiles in a festal room,
Sit owning all is sweet, yet sweeter far at home.
Oh, wherefore! but that man may onward press
Through the drear desert, and that dews may sink
Into our chastened hearts to soothe and bless-
And sadness all our souls in fondness link,
And we cling closer to our unseen God,
Than if in pride and joy a glorious earth we trod ?
There, where the dreams of life are breaking up,
And widow'd hearts, weary with tears, are sleeping!
And sickness lifts to God its bitter cup,
Tearful, yet firm in smiles, and eyes are weeping
Drops that can wipe out sins-unseen they stand--
God's angels near his own--a fond and pitying band.
And I will wait them here, and thou shalt go,
Oh! breeze of eve, where never care thou'It meet!
And I willlinger in a world of wo,
Till sorrow seems a bliss, and sadness sweet!
Speed to thy desert isle and pathless seas!
Farewell, a long farewell, thou soft and even breeze !
ACCOUNT OF A CARNATION VIEWED
THROUGH A MICROSCOPE.
From an elegant bouquet I selected a carnation, the
fragrance of which led me to enjoy it frequently and near.
The sense of smelling was not the only one affected on
these occasions: while that was satiated with the power-
ful sweet, the ear was constantly attracted by an extreme-
ly soft but agreeable murmuring sound. It was easy to
know that some animal within the covert must be the mu-
sician, and that the noise must come from some little crea-
ture suited to produce it. I instantly distended the lower
part of the flower, and, placing it in full light, could dis-
cover troops of little insects frisking with wild jollity
among the narrow pedestals that supported its leaves, and
the little threads that occupied its centre.
What a flagrant world for their habitation! what a
perfect security from all annoyance in the dusky husk that
surrounded the scene of action. Adapting a microscope
to take in at one view the whole base of the flower, I gave
myself an opportunity of contemplating what they were
about, and this for many days together, without giving
them the least disturbance. Thus I could discover their
economy, their passions, and their enjoyments. The mi-
croscope on this occasion had given what Nature seemed
to have denied to the objects of contemplation.
The base of the flower extended itself, under its influ-
ence, to a vast plain; the slender stems of the leaves be-
came trunks of so many stately cedars; the threads in the
middle seemed columns of a massy structure, supporting
at the top their several ornaments ; and the narrow spaces
between were enlarged into walks, parterres, and terraces.
On the polished bottoms of these, brighter than Parian
marble, walked in pairs, alone or in larger companies, the
winged inhabitants: these, from little dusky flies, for such
only the naked eye would have shown them, were there
raised to glorious glittering animals, stained with living
purple, and with a glossy gold that would have made all
the labors of the loom contemptible in the comparison. I
could at leisure, as they walked together, admire their
elegant limbs, their velvet shoulders, and their silken wings;
their backs viewing with the empyrean in its blue ; and their
eyes out-glittering the little plains, and brilliant above de-
scription, and almost too great for admiration.
I could observe them here singling out their favorite fe-
males- courting them with the music of their buzzing
wings, with little songs formed for their little organs, lead-
ing them .from walk to walk among the perfumed shades
-and pointing out to their taste the drop of liquid nectar
just bursting from some vein within the living trunk.
Here were the perfumed groves, the more than myrtle
shades of the poet's fancy, realized. Here the happy lovers
spent their days in joyous dalliance, or, in the triumph of
their little hearts, skipped after one another from stem to
stem among the painted trees, or winged their short flight
to the close shadow of some broader leaf to revel undis-
turbed in the heights of all felicity.-Fawcet.

The crowds that have visited these Springs, and the
general satisfaction expressed, have encouraged the Company
to make extensive improvements since the last season.
Besides enlarging the accommodations very much in other
respects, the former Bath-House will be found greatly impiov..
ed, and furnished with a copious supply of hot and cold sulphur
andi freestone water, and a new and elegant edifice, upon the
most ar proved plan, will be ready by the 1st of July, and te
equal, it is hoped, to any bathing establishment in our country.

instances ; the salubrity of the country around, in full view of
the mountains, supplying the finest meats, vegetables, and
fruits; its ready access to the seaboard, being within 50 miles
of the District of Columbia and 35 of Fredericksburg ; the ele-
gant Ball-room, adorned with new magnificent chandeliers, and
resounding with the strains ofa most delightful band of music;
the extensive buildings, the noble portico ; the improved grounds
and shady walks, refreshed with jets d'eau, present attractions
to the Public which it will not overlook.
To secure the best wines, liquors, attendants and servants,
every attention has been paid. The roads have been improved.
A costly bridge over the Rappahannock, within a few hundred
yards of the Spring, is in rapid progress to completion.
New and elegant stages run daily between Washington city
and the Springs, leaving each place early in the morning, and
arriving at the Springs at 4 o'clock, and at Washington in time
for the Baltimnore cars of the same day. This line continues to
Louisa Court-ho.se daily, branching at Orange Court-house,
and running thence to Charlottesville. It leaves the Springs at
5 in the morning, and runs that evening to Louisa Court-house
There will also be a daily line from Fredericksburg to the
Springs, and thence tri-weekly to Winchester.
The Springs will be ready for the reception of company on
the 15th of June. On the 4th of July, the Declaration of In-
dependence will be read, and, at the earnest solicitation of the
Company, Mr. JOHN S. PENDLETON, the distinguished Dele-

THE MAINE QUESTION.
The conjecture, that the visit of Mr. Secreta-
ry FORSYTH to the State of MAINE had some
connexion with the controversy between the
United States and Great Britain concerning the
Northeastern boundary question, is confirmed
by the subjoined extract from a leading Whig
journal in Maine. From the fact of the Secre-
tary having consulted not only the Governor of
the State, but other prominent individuals, and
of both political parties, we draw two inferences,
both of which are, as far as they go, gratifying
to us as National politicians, viz. First, That
the conferences between the Secretary of State
and the Governor of the State of Maine have
not been in their official capacities, and that the
Executive has therefore not recognized the right
of any State: in this Union to prescribe the terms
of negotiation between the United States and
any foreign Power: and, secondly, that there is
an earnest and sincere desire on the part of the
1Executive to bring this unhappy controversy'
with Great Britain to a prompt and amicable
close, on such terms as shall be acceptable to
the People of Maine, without distinction of

THE JOINT COMMISSION.--In the Kennebec Journal of
May 21st we published the letter of Mr. STEVENSON, our
Minister in London, with an extract from a conmmunica-
tion of Lord PALMERSTON of April 3, proposing a joint
commission to survey and settle the Northeastern bounda-
ry line, from which we learnt that the British Govern-
ment had submitted to ours a draft of a convention for
the purpose of regulating the proceedings of the commis-
sioners." Until recently we have been in ignorance of the
nature of this draft," but are now compelled to say that
our worst apprehensions are fully realized. We are not
able to inform our readers by authority of the precise terms
of this draft," but can say that they are wholly inadmis-
Mr. FORSYTH, the U. S. Secretary of State, has been
here, where the Governor and Council are in session.
While in Portland last week he had a conference with
Gov. FAIRFIELD, Mr. WILLIAMS, Gov. KENT, Col. DAVIES,
and others, who met him there on his invitation, and sub-
mitted to them the proposition df the British Government.
They were unanimous in the opinion that Maine could
not agree to it, and they regarded it only as calculated, if
not designed, to make a further and severer test of the pa-

THE SAC AND Fox WAR PARTY.-The Bur-
lington (Iowa) Gazette of the 8th says :
A gentleman direct from the agency on the Des Moines
informs us that the war party of the Sacs and Foxes, of
which we spoke some four or five weeks ago, returned
some days since, bringing with them eight scalps, about an
equal number of squaws as prisoners, and several horses.
The Indians thus cruelly butchered were of the Omaha
tribe, from the Missouri. The party consisted of ten men,
'with their squaws; and although only eight scalps were
brought in, it is supposed that not a single man escaped.
We are not aware that feelings of hostility have heretofore
existed between these nations. The ostensible object of
the Sac and Fox party was to chastise the Sioux. The
expedition was headed by Pa-nas-sa, a bold and daring
brave, who recently inflicted a dangerous wound upon the
person of Ke-o-kuck."
All persons, and ladies especially, should be careful to
avoid stepping from the railroad cars when they are in mo-
tion, however moderate the motion may appear. What
seems a slow movement on a railroad is often as rapid as
the motion of the quickest stage-coach. An illustration of
the danger of attempting to leave the cars while they are
in motion occurred a few days ago, at one of the Lynn
depots, where a lady, who had intended to leave the cars
there, neglected to move until after the train was set in mo-
tion, and then stepped out. The motion of the cars had
appeared slow enough to render it safe to do so, but the im-
pet.us was so great that she could not stand, and fell upon
her face. Fortunately, she was not seriously injured.
The New York Evening Post mentions a singular fact
in relation to a lighthouse in Chautauqie county, New
York-that the light is maintained by gas issuing from a
rock. The Post says:
The lighthouse at Barcelona, in Chautauque county,
New York, is lighted by natural gas, which escapes from
fissures in the rocks near the shore. The supply is a never
failing one, and no light equals it in power. A rude reser-
voir has been erected over one of the fissures in the rock,
by which the gas is conveyed in pipes to the lighthouse.
The Buffalo *dvertiser reminds us that there are gas
streams similar to those at Portland or Barcelona in the
neighborhood of Fredonia, a few miles from Barcelona,
and that the supply obtained from them has been used
for. lighting that flourishing village. But few have any
knowledge of the fact above-mentioned. It is certainly
curious that gas of so pure a quality should issue from the
earth in such quantities, and for such a length of time."

advice is copied from the resolutions adopted at a public

FROM THE ARMY AND NAVY CHRONICLE.
.THE SEVENTH INFANTRY IN FLORIDA.
The Daily National Intelligencer of June 19th contains
a letter from Florida of June 9th, signed An Officer of
the 7th Infantry." It is to be regretted'that the Editors of
that paper should publish a letter so little creditable to the
Army. Never, from so respectable a source, have I seen
so extraordinary a combination of cringing or sickening
flattery of the Secretary of War, of boasting and exagge-
ration of-the importance of common and matter-of-course
services, of evident aversion.and shrinking from duty, and
extravagant effort for its avoidance.
It says' To retain the Seventh Infantry in this coun-
try would be tantamount to its disbandment; for none of
the old and experienced captains could, with consistent
self-respect, continue to hold their commissions," &c. The
author, when he wrote that sentence, knew that there was
no probability in it, and that he would be rejoiced if the
"Captains" would resign; but he did not know, perhaps,
that he was libelling his regiment, and the "experienced
captains," who would be disgraced if they resigned in the
field. Undoubtedly, they have not made the writer of that
letter their "sense bearer," and will be gratified at my
doing them this prompt justice, which their distance and
their duties would long postpone.
There is creeping into the Army, alike among antiquated
field-officers and those of much less rank, an inclination to
overrate their services, to attach extravagant importance to
the smallest affairs not of every-day occurrence. It is de-
grading their merits, and apparently their loftiest ideas of
duty and distinction, to the lowest standard. Behold its
fruits in the letter in question! The author, so far from
being satisfied that his regiment, for the first time in twen-
ty years, should have an opportunity to burn p >wder, is not
ashamed to publish to the world his boasts, his humble appeal
to the pity of the Secretary of War, and, in his earnest zeal;
scruples not to attempt to excite his fears of the expediency
of keeping his regiment in Florida, and at the expense of
their reputation. He had been in Florida almost three
months, and, daring to speak for his regiment, makes com-
plaints which were scarcely heard from regiments which
have served there, paving the way for the Seventh, for as
That there exists incompetency, carelessness, and mis-
management in that important branch of the Army sta-
tioned at Washington City, few will deny; and that there
are many in subordinate stations who suffer injustice, and
are highly sensible of neglect and ignorance in the most
important concerns which affect them and all, is also unde-
niable; and I hold it that the Chronicle is a fit arena for
temperate discussion, and, if needs be, of earnest complaint
in these cases. But what must be said of a general use of
newspapers for the publication of every discontent!-of li-
bellous publications from the theatre of a campaign !-in-
nocent publications as to which are strictly forbidden in
A house divided against itself cannot stand. It were
better to'suffer in silence-Ltoset an example of a better spi-
rit of content and cheerfulness on every duty, of esprit de
corps in all army affairs. But the evil had its origin at
general headquarters, which, for instance, is shown in the
treatment of the regiment which has been mentioned;
In it there has been for some ten years a permanent, or al-
most invariable absence of about two-thirds of the officers.
None can deny that, for that period, every lieutenant and
brevet second lieutenant present with the regiment have
been habitually in command of companies, and in not very
unfrequent cases of two at a time.
But the very number of the National Intelligencer which
contains the letter which (much lamenting the occasion) I
have commented on, contains a publication signed by a
brevet Major General of the Army, abusive (in evident
allusions) of other members of the Army, and boasting of
having beaten" the enemy about three years ago, on an
occasion when, all the world supposes, he held himself be-
sieged by an Indian force certainly not superior in number;
eating his horses, or starving, rather than face his enemy,
or make the sally which a Court, after hearing all the evi-
dence, deliberately censured him for not making; and, of
course, makes it an occasion to give a side puff to a hum-
bug railway hobby which he has ridden rough shod over
the patience of the Public for years.
What an example for the Army! DE FOIX.
NEW METHOD OF ENGRAVING.
FROM THE NEW YORK JOURNAL OF COMMERCE.
The New York Observer of the present week contains
a map (of Connecticut) which is the first fruits of a new
method of engraving, invented by the editor, SIDNEY E.
MORSE, Esq. We of course do not understand the nature
of the invention, but, in common with others, we can see
its effects, and we also know the rapidity of the process by
which the work is performed. We do not hesitate to ex-
press our belief that it will revolutionize the business of en-
graving in several of its branches, and particularly in that
of map-making. The map of Connecticut above referred
to is done in a style quite superior to that of common wood
engraving ; yet it by no means reaches the full powers of
the new art. One great advantage which Cerography (for
so Mr. MORSE has named his invention) possesses over
wood engraving is, its enabling the artist to insert as many
names, roads, &c. as can be done by copperplate engrav-
ing; as many, in short, as there is room for on the map.
Necessity was the mother of this invention, as of many
others. Mr. Morse was engaged in preparing maps to ac-
company his Observer. The rest of the story is told (so
far as he sees fit to tell it at present) in the following para-
graphs, copied from the number of that paper for the pre-
From the nature of wood-cut engraving, we were under
the necessity of omitting roads, names of towns, and other in-
formation, to such an extent that, when we compared them with
the copperplate maps from which we copied, they lost in our
eyes nearly all value. In reflecting on the matter, we became
satisfied that a new mode of engraving was practicable, by
which map plates could be easily made containing all the infor-
mation on the copperplate maps, and yet printed in connexion
with type, under the letter press. Accordingly, we commenced
our experiments, and persevered until they were crowned with
complete success. The map of Connecticut, which we give on
our last page, is from a plate obtained by the new method.
Wood-cut engravers, or persons conversant with their art, will
see at once that the information on this map could not be given
in relief on woo:], except at an expense which must deter any
one from attempting it. By the new method, it is very rapidly
"As the inventor of a new art, we shall be allowed, we sup-
pose, the privilege of giving it a name. We accordingly name
it C(rography. In a few weeks we hope to be able to prepare
a specimen sheet, which will show that, for maps, music, and
some other kinds of engraving, Cerography, with proper atten-
tion to the presswork, is capable of furnishing prints that will
make a very near approach in beauty to those from coppei-
plates. Ifthis can be done, the superior facility of the engrav-
ing, the durability of the plate, and the rapidity of the printing,
will give it great advantages. We need not inform persons ac-
quainted with newspaper printing under a Napier press, that we
do not refer to the map in this paper as a specimen of any thing
but the amount of information which can be given by the new
art. No judgment can be formed by it of the delicacy or beau-
ty of which the style is susceptible."
It will be found, if we mistake not, that Mr. MORSE is
very moderate in his estimation of the advantages of his
invention. As he remarks, Cerography can execute a
drawing or map in a style but little inferior to copperpla'e
engraving, and at a comparatively small expense. Then,
instead of 600 copies aday, which isthe utmost that can be
taken off from a copperplate, the new method renders it
practicable to print many thousands in a day-as many
thousands, in fact, as can be turned off by a Napier press,
of whatever power.
So far as we understand the new art, it is purely origin-
al in all that renders it of any value. If any think other-
wise, they will have an opportunity, before the modus ope-
randi is announced to the Public, to show whether they
can accomplish the same results by their enchantments.
SIGNOR DE BEGNIS.
The following is a free translation of an amusing French
Rondo, which Signor DE BEGNIS has sang with great ap-
plause in other cities; and, as he will introduce it at the
Concert this evening, we give the English version for the
benefit of those who may not understand the original. The
verses were written expressly for him by a French gentle-
man, an editor of the Constitutionel at Paris. The music.
is arranged.by Signor De B. himself.
[As the musical entertainments this evening, including
the trial of skill between two masters on the most perfect of
instruments, will present unusual attractions, we hope, for
the sake of all concerned, that the performance may be
graced by a full auditory ; and, as the musical skill and re-
putation of our city must, to a certain extent, abide the ver-
dict which will be rendered by the audience, we trust that
all whose taste or knowledge qualify them to form a judg-
ment will especially attend.]

EXECUTION AT MOBILE.-Friday, the 21st ultimo, was
the day appointed for the execution of JOHN LARKIN, con-
'icted of mail robbery and murder. We learn from the
Journal that the sentence was carried into effect about a
mile from town, and was witnessed by an immense crowd.
Larkin died with steadiness and composure. He made,
with the assistance of a confessor, a short address, in which
he implied the confession of his own guilt, and took occa-
sion.to contradict some portions of the evidence brought
forward on the trial, that has been made to implicate oth-
ers in the subsequent concealment of the offence. He ex-
pressly acquitted Mr. WILLIAMS, the party now in custody
as his accomplice, and protested that they had never met
before they met in prison. It will be recollected that Lar-
kin was apprehended in Philadelphia last summer, having
fled from Mobile after committing the robbery and murder.

R HOE CO. 29 and 31, Gold street, New
York, having made recent improvements in their
works for the purpose of manufacturing their improved machine
Cylinder Presses, have concluded to reduce the prices of these
presses, which will be as follows, viz.
No. 1, has bed 40 by 29 $1,600
'No. 2, has bed 46 by 31 2,100
No. 3, has bed 50 by 31 2,300)
No. 4, has bed 54 by 35- 2,500
No. 1, has bed 40 by 27 2,500
No. 2, has bed 44 by 31 2,750
No. 3, has bed 50 by 31 3,000
Large or smaller sizes can be made to order.
For the printing of newspapers, Hoe & Co.'s improved Na-
pier Presses are decidedly preferable to any others in use. The
expedition with which it prints is a desideratum that has in no
other way been attained-the Single Napier being capable of
throwing off from 1,500 to 1,800 impressions per hour, and the
Double Cylinder twice that number. The Presses may be
driven by one strong man, or other equal power ; the Single
Cylinder requires, also, two boys or girls, (one of them to put
on, and the other to take off the sheets ;) the Double Cylinder
two to put on, and two to take off, These Presses are not liable
to get out of repair, and any careful man can learn in a few
days how to attend them properly. The parts liable to wear out
are small, and duplicates of them can always be ordered with a
new machine, and readily replaced when needed. R. Hoe &
Co. are. the only manufacturers of the Napier Presses in this
country, and from their long experience in their manufacture,
and by the construction of new and costly machinery expressly
to facilitate the making of these Presses, are now enabled to
offer an improved article, at prices which will render them ac-
cessible to the greater part of the newspaper printers in the
United States. The Single Press occupies a space of 16 feet
by 8 feet, and the Double Press 17 feet by 8 feet.
Hoe & Co. are the sole manufacturers of the Washington and
Smith patent Hand-presses, and furnish every article necessary
for a printingoffice complete.

Charles Holker Carroll, executor and devisee of Charles Car-
roll, of Bellevue, William T. Carroll, Daniel Joseph Carroll,
Elizabeth Barbary Fitzhugh, Anne Rebecca Lane, devisees
and heirs at law of Charles Carroll, of Bellevue ; Mary, Anne,
and Alida Tabbs, children of Jane Maria Tabbs, deceased,
who was a devisee and heir at law of Charles Carroll, of
Bellevue, William Brent, and Daniel Carroll, of Duddington.
HE Bill of complaint in this case states, that on the 29th
June, A. I). 1812, a contract was made between Thomas
Tingey, then Commandant of the Navy Yard at Washington,
in behalf of the Navy Department of the United States, of
the one part, and Elie Williams, Charles Carroll, of Bellevue,
Daniel Carroll, of Duddington, and William Brent, of the other
part, for the delivery of certain quantities of beef and whiskey,
and the fulfilment of certain other obligations by the said Charles
Carroll, Daniel Carroll, and Elie Williams, which agreement
is exhibiteJ: that the said Williams and Charles Carroll are
since dead : that the said agreement never was fulfilled by the
said parties : that large sums of money were advanced to the
said Williams and Carrolls by the United States under the
agreement, which they wholly failed to account for or refund,
as stipulated by the said parties in the said agreement : that on
the 29th June, 1824, the sum of $4,776 78, with interest there-
on, was found to be due to the United States, and remains still
unpaid, as appears by an account properly settled by the account-
ing officers of the United States, and exhibited with the bill.
The bill allegesthat Elie Williams died, leaving little or no pro-
perty, and that administration was not had on his estate : that
Charles Carroll, of Bellevue, died possessed of a large real
estate in the county of Washington, having first made his last
will and testament, a copy of which is exhibited, by which
Charles Holker Carroll was appointed his sole executor. The
bill further charges that a large real and personalestate where-
of the said Charles Carroll died possessed came into the hands
of his widow, Anne Carroll, who is since deceased, his executor,
devisees, and heirs at law, which ought to have been applied
to the payment of the said debt in preference ofall others: that
the executor failed to apply the said assets of said estate to the
payment of said debt, which still remains unpaid. The bill also
charges that, as the said Daniel Carroll,of Duddington, and Wil-
liam Brent have not paid the debt which accrued as aforesaid, or
any part thereof, the United States are entitled to a decree for the
paymentofthe same against the said Daniel Carroll, of Dud-
dington, and William Brent. The object of this bill is to compel
the defendants to make answers to the matters above charged,
and, ii the said debt be not paid by a certain day to be named by
the Court, to compel the executor to pay out of tire said personal
estate the said debt; and if it should appear that the same is in-
sufficient for the payment of the aforesaid debt, that the real
estate whereof the sail Charles Carroll died seed d be sold to
liquidate the same. And forasmuch as it appears to the Court
that the said Charles Holker Carroll. Daniel Joseph Carroll,
Anne Rebecca Lane, Elizabeth Barbary Fitzhugh, and Alida
Tabbs, Mai y Tabbs, and Anne Tabbs, are not citizens of the
District of Columbia anIe do not reside therein, it is this second
day of May, in the year A. D. 1839, ordered that the said com-
plainants give notice to the said absent defendants to be ard ap-
pear in this Court on or by the first Monday in November next,
in person, or by solicitor, and answer the several matters and
things in the said bill set forth, and that if they shall fail so to ap-
pear and answer, the several matters and things in the said bill
set forth shall be taken for confessed as against said absent de-
fendants, and such decree made in the premises against them
as to the Court shall seem right and equitable: Provided,
however, That such notice be published in the National Intelli-
geucer twice a week for six weeks, successively, the first in-
sertion to appear at least four months before the *aid first Mon-
day of November next; and, also, that such published notice
contain the substance and object of the said bill.

Joseph Harris, administrator of John Harris,
John T. Temple.
FjpHE Bill of complaint in this cause states that John
K Harris, deceased, in his lifetime sold to John T. Temple
lots Nos. 7 and 8, in square 316, in the ciIy of Washington, Dis-
trict of Columbia, and gave his bond to the said Temple, con-
ditioned for the conveyance of the said lots to said Temple, his
heirs and a-signs, on the payment of the purchase-money.
'lhat, to secure the payment of a part of the said purchase-mo-
ney, said Temple on the 5th day of January, in the year 1831,
made and delivered his bond to the said John Harris in a penal
sum, conditioned to pay to said Harris the sum of two hundred
and seventy dollars, with interest from date, on the first day'of
January, in the year 1836. That said John Harris is (lead,
and letters of administration on on his estate have been granted to
the complainant; that said John T. Temple has neglected to
pay the taxes on the said lot, and, to prevent their being lost, the
complainant has paid twelve dollars and twenty-six cents on
that account; that the said bond has fallen due, and the said
Temple has refused to pay the same. The object of the bill
is to obtain a decree to sell the said lots for the payment of the
said purchase-money and interest thereon, and the money ad-

dleburg, Loudoun county, Virginia, on Whitsunday, the 19th
inst. the following slaves, viz.
FRANK, a forming hand, about 35 years old, about 5 feet 10
inches high, of very black complexion, rather surly, and down
look when spoken to, has lost three or four of his front teeth ;
has a sore leg occasionally, which produces lameness. His
clothing was blue cloth close coat, with metal buttons, and blue
cloth pantaloons ; he also had brown striped and drab pulled lin-
sey pantaloons; all his clothing about half worn.
GEORGE, a blacksmith, about 23 years old, very black,
about 6 feet high, stout built, but not fleshy, stoops a lit le in
the shoulders, and is awkward in his movements ; has a down
look when spoken to, thick lips, and has an oval face, with high
cheek bones; his clothing was blue cloth coat, partly worn, new
gray cassinet pantaloons; other articles not recollected.
PHILLIS, a copper colored negro woman, about 22 years old,
of coarse features, stout and tall in her form, her lips thick, and
has a knot on one of her wrists.
ALCE, sister to the above girl, about 20 years old, rather
yellow, and not so stout as Phillis, is well formed, and features
not so coarse, has thick lips, and shows her upper teeth pretty
much when she laughs. They had both good home-made linsey
and cotton dresses, also of white cambric and calico, and blue
and white gingham sun-bonnets, shoes, stockings, &c.
These people all went off without the slightest provocation,
and have no doubt made towards the Northern States.

1150 t OLLARS REbARD.--Ran away from
1 U 1J the subscribers, in Fauquier county, State of Va.
near Upperville, three negro men, in August and September,
1838, NAT, SAM, and ESSEX. We will give the above reward
in the following manner :
For the apprehension of negro man NAT, five hundred
dollars, if taken, secured, and delivered to me, or secured
in jail so that I get him. Nat is about 22 years old, about 5
feet 10 inches high, weighs about 175 pounds, stout made, but
not very fleshy; he is very black, his hair very nappy, but
short; he has rather a down look, a rather coarse voice, and
but little to say in a general way ; he shows his teeth a little
when he talks, they are sound and white ; his feet are rather
over the common size. I would not be surprised if he had
a pass or forged paper. I have every reason to believe he in-
tends making for a free State, as he left me without provoca-
tion. The horse, saddle, and bridle which he stole and took
with him I have since got. Nat can be taken either as a thief
or runaway. ROBERT FLETCHER.
For the apprehension of SAM, five hundred dollars. Sam
is a mulatto, of rather a bright copper color, uncommon coarse
voice, and is about 5 feet 6 inches high, well formed, and will
weigh about 160 pounds, 40 years old ; he is very fond of
horses, and has wagoned for the last fifteen years; he can read
and write. I will give the above reward for Sam, provided he is
secured and delivered to me, or secured in jail so that I get him.
JOSHUA FLETCHER, Jr.
For the apprehension of ESSEX, I will give the reward of
one hundred and fifty dollars, provided he is secured and deli-
vered to me, or secured in Jail so that I get him. Essex is a
dark mulatto, 5 feet 10 or 11 inches high, well formed, weight
about 175 pounds, 45 years old.

D R. J. MASON'S UNIVERSAL VEGETA-
BLE MEDICINES.-" It is impossible for disease
to contend with the medical preparations of Dr. J. Mason."
H/ho say so ? Thousands who have tried them.
INDIAN VEGETABLE BLOOD PURIFIER.-This great
regulator of the human system, composed entirely of Ameri-
can vegetables, by purifying the blood, eradicates the seeds of
disease, and restores debilitated constitutions to health. Fe-
males, particularly, who have experienced its virtues, keep it
constantly by them.
FEVER AND AGUE POWDERS.-This is, to use the em-
phatic language of Dr. Mason, "the greatest medicine in the
world." It is warranted to cure ague and fever in all cases,
and to prevent bilious and other fevers in sickly climates and
Also, Dr. Mason's Compound Hop Pills, Dyspepsia Powders,
Renovating Powders, Universal Liniment, for bruises, sores,
rheumatic and other pains, Piles Ointment, Toothache Lini-
ment, Vermifuge, Cough Sirup, Eye Water, Eruptive Oint-
ment. These medicines, the result of many years' medical
practice and investigation of Dr. John Mason (now of Phila-
delphia) in the Western States, are warranted entirely vegeta-
ble-th(cse that are to be taken internally-and of their efficacy
it is sufficient to say they have generally taken the place of
other medicines wherever introduced. They are now doing in
Philadelphia, in this respect, what they have already done int
Ohio. Dr. Mason says : It is usual to publish a long cata-
logue of certificates, generally unknown to the purchaser ; any
one wishing to read such, by calling on me, can have employ-
mentfor a week. I send my medicines forth depending on their
own merits. All I ask is, try them."
The subscriber, satisfied, after full investigation, of the inno-
cence and virtue of these medicines, has become proprietor and
sole agent for Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, North
and South Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky, and is ready to
supply orders for them in their genuine purity. Every bottle
or package (accompanied by ample directions) sold by the sub-
scriber will have his name written on the label, and sealed with
the name of Dr. Mason. No others are genuine.
