.J l'.,r..t-d jlgP I' r, i. ii.i Avenue by Mr. WALKER, the
most indefatigable victualler is Washington. Whatever a Buffn
may assert, it must be evident hlie never visited South Branch, Po-
tomar, in Virginia, where all cavilling about superiority of .-r..-,r.g
would be put to flight, and the old Keystone be left as far out of
sight as Biutlon was int his imagination. It is generally admitted
on all hands, and by the most competent judges, that Virginia pro-
duces uniformly as good beef as any portion of this country, and
at no time do we witness Chickamuxen cattle coamning from her.
As truth is mighty and will prevail, those who freast.i hepir eyes
on those extraordinary productions of animal nature, jr,.j &cured
a portion of it, were truly gratified. Walker feels grateful to his
fellow-citizens for their liberal encouragement; and, as he spares
no pains to give general satisfaction, what hie represents to be good
you have found by ocular demonEtratin to excel, even beyond
your own expectations. Walker still has one piece, which was
too fat to be disposed of. Mr. Jesse Brown has also a piece, which
Walker begs strangers and other interested in grazing to call
and witness, at hiis stalls, Centre Market, or at the above place,
and they will find no mistake about the superiority of those ex-
traordinary cattle. It would be unjust not to say that th. -e .tdid-
were purchased of Mr. Hezekiah Ciagett, who was deisr:,*i to
show that Virginia ihas no superior.

PARIs, JANUARY 11, 1841.
The festivities of the last week deprived me of
the aid of my amanuensis, and you of my usual
contribution. But my notes are the more abund-
ant. After the present short session of Congress,
you will have room for the various topics on which
I have collected memoranda. The transactions
of the several worlds, or grand divisions of actors
in this capital, furnish materials, apart from the
occurrences and opinions of the day, well worth
a regular digest or notice for our country ; but the
aggregate would be too large for any American
journal, even one so ample in its plan and dimen-
sions as the National Intelligencer.
We hear daily of devastating hurricanes in all
the European and Oriental seas, and along all the
coasts. From the South, as well as the North,
the accounts are alike of the extreme severity of
the winter: rivers ribbed, mountains covered
with snow, roads impassable, vessels, even steam-
ers, wrecked, migratory flocks of birds repelled by
storms, or killed by extraordinary temperature-all
nature benumbed or disordered. Since my arri-
val in Europe, I have not been fully reminded of
Americanw December and January, except in the
present season. Some days, it has been impossi-
ble to warm with the ordinary fires apartments of
the best exposition; the trees are still bending under their
loads of snow and icicle; the Paris roofs and the borders of
the streets are white; the comparatively few sleighs, must of
them exceedingly fantastical, have been brought out for the
Champs Elys6es and the Bois de Boulogne. The mixture
of mud in the narrow streets, with the masses of snow, rer-
deis them difficult for any sledge. As the horses, even
those kept for exercise or pleasure, are not rough-shod, a
curious spectacle of slipping and falling is presented each
morning until rain or the sun, and the ploughing of so many
hoofs, have broken the glassy surface of the Boulevards.
At Court, during the last week, the utmost bustle prevail-
ed, what with deputations and addresses of the public bodies,
and the annual presentations and crowded assemblages in the
evening. Twenty-six American gentlemen--four clergymen
of the number-and twenty-nine American ladies, made
their debut. They were accompanied by others who had
done so in former years. The Ministers of the Gospel ap-
peared in their canonicals, the rest in the Court finery which
was especially devised, A. D. 1837, for the North American
Republicans, and against which I could urge what I think
sound considerations, if the matter deserved a paragraph. A
list of the gentlemen, official I presume, appeared in Gal-
ignani's Messenger of the 9th. I have not before seen
or remarked this mode of publication. If the first instance,
it may be for good reasons. The British presentees, about
forty, were dluly gazetted the day previous. The political
editor of the Messenger premises that the King showed
much affability to them." lIam sorry to say that the Eng-
lish, wherever they figure, experience considerably less of
this from the French in general, than they did before the
treaty of July. The disposition to ridicule and quiz them
has revived as strongly as the fighting mood. For example,
see the sentences which I translate for you from the Siecle.
"The reception at the Tuilleries on the 1st inst. was rather
'dull; not that the multitude and eagerness of the courtiers
were less, but from the paucity of strangers, especially the
'queer-the red-coats, so offensive [in their glare to the
French eye, and those female caricatures that formerly
S' thronged the Palace halls. We could not discover a single
one of the tall, stiff, starched English.Women whose toilette
'indicated the approach of the Carnival." You will learn
by some of the paragraphs which I enclose, that the Dramatic
Censors and the police have interfered to suppress or modify
productions for the stage by which the British might feel them-
selves outraged or assailed, and the renascent prejudices and
animosities between the two nations be prematurely aggra-
vated. The license to ridicule and abuse the French being
indefinite and unmolested on the other side of the channel, it
seems to me hard and unfair that the hrnmarou, of the Parisians should be obstructed by the Government at
the moment that they hear of the London after-pieces and
caricatures about the French Frog and the British Ox, and
the Gallic Cock that croas but wonf fight, &c. The obser-
vation of Lord PALMERSTON that the French would at first
raise a prodigious noise about the treaty and its execution
but finally acquiesce, and that he could make Louts Put-
LiPPe pass through the eye of a needle; and Lord MELt.-
BOURNE'S threat to sweep away the French armaments, have
loft stings many inches deep in the French national soul.
The frequent allusions to them, not merely in the journals
and theatres, but the debates of both Chambers and social
talk, show how they fester. They have contributed in their
way to reconcile the French palate to that scheme of a Rus-
sian alliance which is now recommended from so many mouths
and pens, whence it could have been expected scarcely ever
or under any circumstances. If ODILON BARROT declared in
a committee of the Chamber that he would prefer a despotic
government to the loss of national independence, he meant
that nothing could be worse than a system which'submitted
to national insignificance, or brooked the spirit and tone of
the British Cabinet. The New Year's Day addresses and
answers at the Tuilleries continue to affect public opinion un-
favorably for the Court and Cabinet. The exclusive stress
which is laid upon peace, and the emphasis of amiable pro-
fession towards the foreign Powers, seem excessive and quite
unsuitable to the new relative position and policy of France,
such as they have been proclaimed even by M. GUtzoT. They
indicate a resolution-of the Monarch particularly-to avoid
war by all possible means; to acquiesce in any external trans-
actions. I am sure that he has been too lamb-like and phi-
lanthropic in his strain for the temper and purposes of the
Chambers; of both Peers and Deputies, who, however, are
moderate, perhaps humble, in comparison with most of the
parties out of doors. No doubt, the King and his Ministers
are persuaded that the most perilous extreme is the other, to-
wards which public sentiment, justly excited in several re-
spects, has been inordinately impelled for the ends of revolu-
tion and reconquest. In his reply to the compliments of the
Institute, delivered by'Rosst, Louis PHILIPPR returns to a
topic upon which ho has seized every opportunity to dwell. I
mean the evil of Republican theories, causing youthful or too
sanguine intelligence to concur in attempting what must
prove baneful in practice. In my long career,"he remarks,
how many upright men have I known urged forward by il-
'lusive abstractions. and general reasoning, who were them-
selves astonished, in the end, at the mischief which they had
accomplished, instead of the good which they designed and
desired." The spectre or vision that haunts and nearly
engrosses the eye of every monarchical statesman is that
Democracy predicted by CHATEAUBRIAND and DE Toccute-
ViLLE; and the situation of Spain causes it to loom from the
top of the Pyrenees on the French royalty of July. The
British press has been lavish of panegyric on Louis Pan-

LIPPE'S philanthropic meekntiess and philosophical patriotism;
and the more lively its accents of gratification, the sharp-
er the discontent in his realm. The London Morning
Chronicle takes the lead in applauding and rejoicing ; which
is, for the Paris politicians, as it my Lord PALM RSTON him-
self clapped his hands. The President of the Chamber of
Deputies abstained, in his address, from the topic of peace or
war; and properly, because he knew the feelingsofthe Cham-
ber too well to join the chorus, as its organ. But the Chron-
icle scolds at him for his unmeaningg language," his "timid
silence," and then adds: The King heard the President
with some impatience, and broke forth into a frank, clear,
'and courageous reply" against war, conquest, and glory.
Now, in regard to the breaking forth, every one here knows,
or should know, that the addresses and replies are concerted;
that what M. SAUZET read was submitted to the King before-.
hand; and that the topics-the virtues of the Queen, the ser-
vices and merits of the heir apparent, the admirable qualities
of all the scions of the National Dynasty, the union of the
Chambers with the Crown, &c. are precisely those to which
Louis PImLtPPE would listen with exemplary endurance. I
cite this as a specimen of the misrepresentation of French
scenes, common to the London papers. The Chronicle's
editorial accounts (4th instant) of Count MoLt's inaugural

Last week, a copy of Captain BAsiL. HALL's new publica-
tion, in three volumes, entitled Patchwork, fell by chance into
my hands. I turned over some of the pages relating to Paris,
and read his account of the cold of this capital, which he re-
presents to be such as he could not remember to have seen in
Great Britain or any where else. He says:
If summer in Paris is had for man and beast, winter is
even less bearatle; the cold, ,% atn I was there, subdued all
mankind alike-natives and -tian.'r [a, and at times entirely
cleared the streets f .erq.pI lh.-aving the capital like one of
those mysteriously d-'tie, ci.ot- in Hindostan described by
travellers in the East, Which, with all their palaces and tem-
ples complete, have been left for ages without a single inha-
bitant in them! I walked once, the day after Christmas, from
end to end of Paris, and literally met only a stray gendarme
or two. How the wretched coachmen manage to live at all
in such weather as I have seen in Paris, is to me inconceiv-
able: for even to the inside passengers the cold becomes at
times so severe that, with all the contrivances, they can think
of-warm furs, hot water bottles, greatcoats, boat cloaks, and
shaAls-they can scarcely go from one house to another with-
out being frozen to death-a fate which actually befel two
poor sentries and an unfortunate donkey one bitter night of
the winter alluded to. The soldiers were found, at the hour
of their relief, as it is called, with their muskets shouldered,
standing as stiff and erect at their post, at the palace gate. as
when their corporal had planted them. The honest donkey
was found standing across the path in the Boulevards at day-
break, with his tail straight on end, as rigid as a bar. In his
death the poor old fellow retained his wonted look of patience
and contentment so completely that the people, thinking him
still alive, drubbed him soundly as they passed, for being in
the way."
This is the fifth winter that I have resided in Paris, with
a constitution peculiarly sensitive to cold, and yet I have
neither seen nor felt what warrants, in any degree, the cap-
tain's wonderful yarn. It is very many years since the
weather has been so pinching, searching, hyperborean, as
within the month past, yet no one has witnessed any thing
like his phenomena, not even an honest donkey frozen to the
life In regard to the desertion of the streets, the captain's
Patch-work must be absolute fancy-work. It could net have
occurred without an entire revolution in the nature and habits
of the Parisians. In general, they have seemed to me invin-
cible by atmosphere of any description. I have rarely ob-
served the streets to be more crowded than since the com-
mencement of this Siberian spell. According to the London
meteorological diaries, the thermometer has fallen lower there
than in Paris. We survive and even enjoy ourselves within
and without doors. If Captain BASIL HALL'S Loo Choo ro-
mance and his book on the United States had not procured
for him a Munchausen degree, his German anecdotes, ex-
ploded as they were, and the present Patch-work, would enti-
tle him to a diploma consummate. When we have seen and
heard, we can scarcely credit our eyes as we read the London
statements of what has occurred or is filt in this capital, yet
those statements are, unavoidably, the first circulated by the
American press. The Boston and Ney York editors must
copy them at once on the arrival of the British steamers.
Reason has some share in the strictures of the French Op
position writers on the custom of making and publishing offi-
cial harangues and Royal responses at each new year. It is
peculiar to the French monarchy. The kissing of hands at
the Court of Madrid is not followed by a solemn publication
of the mutual compliments. Every snate, juridical or muni-
cipal body-all the branches of the administration-present
themselves with a set of phrases, more or less voluminous and
ambitiously elaborated. The sovereign's acknowledgments
are generally intended to be significant for the nation or the
world; but, like the addresses, they consist, in the main, of
trite matter repeated to satiety, and often bordering on the ri-
diculous. In the succession of dynasties and rulers, as nearly
the same immutable devotion has been professed, with the
same fulsome flattery to all, the grossest self-contradiction has
been incurred, which the antagonists of the existing powers,
or of the old dignitaries who have topped their part in this
ceremonial through the several changes, do not fail to signal-
ize by easy collation of texts. On tAe recent occasion, the
burden of the song on each side was the weal of mankind
ever promoted by peace, and so happily rescued by the efforts
and resolution of this Government to prevent a general war.
The palace homily smacked, in reality, more of excuse than
of the generous and confident love of our whole species upon
which they found Louis PHILIPPE's submission to events.
Without forgetting the aims and campaigns in Algeria, I
prefer them, however, to the cant of the British -press about
moderation, disinterestedness, philanthropy, and so forth,
when I contemplate the Syrian, Chinese, and Indian wars of
cupidity, aggression, carnage, and rapine. Pharisaism has
never been carried further than by the chief British journals,
with their moral and religious pretensions, and their lectures
to the French, in the articles to which the Treaty of London
has given birth. Curious examples hereafter.
The French official harangues touching the excellence and
obligation of the anti-belligerent system contain no reference
to the special spirit, maxims, and precepts of Christianity
about peace. DupeN,.in his draught of an address to the
King from the Chamber of Deputies, ventured to mention
religion as an object of protection and favor for the Govern-
ment. The very term excited ridicule and resistance; it was
altogether new, and seemed incongruous in the business of
the Chamber. At different times several members have
moved the repeal of a law, of 1814, which renders penal cer-
tain gross profanations of the Sabbath, although it has been
a dead letter, owing more to the indifference of the authori-
ties than tke refractoriness of the People. I was struck with
a dialogue arid scene relating to positive religion, which oc-
curred in the Chamber of Deputies on the 26th ultimo, the
day after Christmas! The principal subject under considera-
tion was the bill for regulating the labor of children in the
manufactories. A member proposed that the Jewish children
should have, for rest, the option between Saturday and Sun-
day; the employment of any under sixteen years of age, on
the Sunday, being forbidden in the bill. The Minister of
Justice and Public Worship argued thus: I cannot admit
that the present text of the bill would be contrary to reli-
gious liberty. There are not more than three hundred thou-
sand Jews in all France; it would, therefore, be inconsist-
'ent and anti-religious to make a law with reference to that
immense minority. [Commotion in the Chamber.] The
Christian religion is that of thirty millions of the French;
be not afraid of declaring for it; I beseech you not to imi-
'tate those who labor daily to undermine religion; adapt
your law to the religion predominant in the country; if the
Hebrew minority will not conform, let them take two days
'of rest instead of one." The Minister was understood to
allude to PORTALtS, the Deputy who had taken the lead
against the law of 1814. PoeTrAis rushed into the tribune,
and the Deputies raised a chorus of laughter. "Gentlemen,"
he cried, "you have just been told that same of us labor to
undermine religion '! That, unhafrpily, is too true," ex-
claimed FtLCHERON, the honest member for Lyons. PORTA-
LtS. "Verily, there is quite a revival in the Chamber. We
have become a pious body." Several voices : So much the
better; so much the better." PoRTaLIS, with an ironical
smile and wsnk: "Indeed, there is here a great, a wonderful
resurrection of faith." Several voices again: "It would be
a blessing." A number of other voices: "It has happened
since DuPI''S address." PoRTaLtS. "It may be good, if you
please to think so; but, if we must be brought back toreli-
gious intolerance, l say that it is evil. You should force no
'man to remain idile on Sunday, whose children may starve
for it." Exclamations of oh oh rose from most divisions
of the Chamber, as every one sees how both Sunday and
Monday are sacrificed to dissipation by the majority of French
operatives. PO0TaLIm continued: As I am en my legs, I
will advert to a recent report by a deputy, a Judge of the
Court of Appeals, wherein it is written that the law con-

cerning the observance of the Sabbath subsists, and must
be held applicable. On the other hand, M. DuPINm informed
us, recently, in answer to my motion for its repeal, that the
measure would be superfluous, inasmuch as the law was
unexecuted-defunct. Let it be acknowledged at once that
the authorities will dare to cftry it into effect; let this be
' only avowed, and I will ester, forthwith, a new protest."
Cries of disapprobation from various deputies. At length the
motion in behalf of the Jews was negatived. FOULD, tihe
Jew banker and deputy, stated that bethought his brethren
sufficiently protected by the Charter, which disclaims a state
From all that passed I could collect that there was among
the Deputies, and on the ministerial bench in particular, a
sense of shame and regret that religion counted so few follow-
ers or abettois in the assembly, er in any branch of the Gov-
ernment. But all branches, and the whole hierarchy, besides
the mass of the priesthood, have been awakened to the mani-
fold, pregnant evil of the general desecration of the Sabbath.
In the autumn, we heard a familiar sermon (prone) from the
worthy and eloquent curate of the church of St. Roch, upon
the French use and abuse of the Lord's day. I copy for you

opinion on this point. Why, then, should it be urged upon
the Senate now? Is nothing due to the opinions of those who
are to succeed us in these seats Would it not be quite as
delicate in us to leave the appointment to be made by those
for whom thl work is to be done'? Shall we act as if we
deemed ourselves more competent to make a proper appoint-
ment than the Senate which will convene in a few days'?
But if nothing is due to them, is there not something due to
public sentiments Will not that be condemnatory of the
proposed measure'! And however pure the motives of every
Senator are, will it not be said by the Public that an opportu-
nity was taken by a defeated party to use the brief authority
they now possess to distribute the last of the loaves and fishes
to a political favorite, and to choose for an officer of the Sen-
ate one who may be obnoxious to the majority which will
meet in this Chamber in a few days ? Will not such be the
expression of public sentiment ? Now, in view of the consi-
derations to which I have referred-viewing the joint resolu-
tions as not obligatory, and an appointment under them not
compulsory nor binding upon our successors, I take leave to say
that, should the resolution be adopted, and an election take
place under it, I shall not consider myself bound to regard it
as an act which the Senate cannot hereafter rescind. And I
hope and trust that one of the earliest acts which the Senate
will perform at its session on the 4th of March next will be to
assert its constitutional right, and perform its constitutional
duty of appointing its own printer.
Regarding, therefore, the adoption of the pending resolu-
tion as wholly unnecessary and inexpedient, and as impro,
perly interfering with the rights and duties of those who are
to succeed us here, I move that the further consideration of it
be postponed to the fourth day of March next.

The Steamer PRESIDENT, Lieut. ROBERTS, R. N.
arrived at New York on Wednesday morning last,
bringing very late news, of which the following,
which we copy from the New Yolk Commercial
Advertiser, are the most important particulars :
The overland mail from India arrived on the 6th of Feb-
ruary, bringing advices from Macao to the 3d of November,
from Chusan to the 27th of October, and from Bombay to
the 1st of January.
The news will probably astonish those of our contempo-
raries who, on the arrival ofthe Boston steam-ship, were so
ready to cry out the news from China is confirmed-the
dispute is settled." All agree now in saying, as we did then,
that Admiral Elliot had made no progress-or, if any, a pro-
gress backward. The squadron was still at Chusan, where
sickness was making fearful ravages; out of 3,650 men land-
ed there, only 2,036 were fit for duty.
At Canton nothing had been done, but the prospect that
any thing would or could be done was looked upon as hope-
less. But we will allow writers on the spot, or in the imme-
diate vicinity, to tell the story.
Our contemporaries concur with the universal voice that a
great calamity has befallen us-that for the present the ob-
jects of the expedition are stultified by our own deed, and the
date of the conclusion of amicable arrangements and the re-
newal of commercial intercourse indefinitely postponed.
While the deputy of the Emperor was negotiating with all
humility and condescension with Admiral Elliot at Peiho,
his master, the Etrperor, had caused the proclamation which
we now publish ts be issued at Canton, proclaiming his sue-
cess and our defeat in terms as arrogant and insolent as any
which he has h. roem..r s-,.l..oed. If the Chinese seek fir
proof of the Inpi.-- Mjl, nit. .t.., he may point to the fleet re-
turning from ii,.- Yoloi Sd, and sailing to meet a commis-
sioner, who is believed by Admiral Elliot to be authorized to
make a conclusive treaty, but whose powers theimperial chop
limits to reporting proposals to the Emperor.
The Admiral, so far as we can gather, has made no de-
mand of compensation for our destroyed merchandise, or re-
paration to our injured merchants; and if we were to endea-
vor to discover the objects of the expedition from the charac-
ter ot the transactions which have already taken place, we
should say that the armament haid been sent to tell the Em-
peror of China what a deal of expense its outfit and despatch
had cost us, and to insist on his Maj'sty defraying the charge,
and then to sail back again and tell the People of England
what a deal of money we hadil got from the Emperor of China
-as much as nearly covered the whole cost of our going to
ask for it-and what a reasonable fellow he was compared to
*what he was represented to hbe.
The first application sent to Ningpo for the release of the
crew of the Kite and Capt. Anstruther was unsuccessful;
and the Blenheim and two other vessels of war had been sent
across to renew the demand : the result of the second appli-
cation was not known when the last accounts came away-
the answer to the first was, that they would not be give up
until all differences were arranged.
The mortality prevailing among the troops meanwhile is
fearful. Out of 3,650 men who landed in China on the 4th
of July, 26i2 were dead by the 22d of October, and 1,614 rea-
dered unlit for duty by disease. On the voyage, in which
nearly as much time was occupied as that during which we
have held possession of Chusan, only 60 died; and of the
4,000 troops who left with the expedition, 300 have already
found unhonored graves. Nearly one-twelfth is a fearful di-
minution of strength before operations are commenced.
BOMBAY, Jan. 1.-The month of December has been by
no leans so prolific of news as that which immediately pre-
ceded it. The Red Rover arrived at Calcutta on the 16th
ult. from Macao, bringing intelligence from that place to the
3d November, and from Chusan to the 24th October. Up to
the latter date very little change appears to have taken place
in the position of the squadron. The admiral was still at
Tinghae, but was expected to sail for Canton about the mid-
dle of November. The repairs of her Majesty's ship Mel-
ville have been completed, and the commander-in-chief will
again hoist his flag in that vessel. The admiral has directed
a fort to be erected near Tinghan, and outposts to be estab-
lished round the whole island. This seems as if he contem-
plated the permanent occupation of Chusan as a British pos-
session; though it has been hitherto supposed that its surren-
der to the Chinese would constitute the basis of future nego-
tiations. Nothing is as yet known relative to the demands
which the eom'nisaioners have made on the Chinese Govern-
ment, and all that hass been said on the subject is but conjec-
ture. It will probably be two months before we get any cer-
tain information. Lieut. Douglass, Capt. Anstruther, and
the other prisoners at Hingpoo, have written to Chusan, stat-
ing that they are kindly treated, but much in want of cloth-
ing. Her Majesty's ships Samarang and Calliope, from
South America, have gone on to join the admiral, so that the
naval force now consists of 19 ships of war, besides four arm-
ed steamers.
At Macao every thing has been quietsince the affair at the
barrier. Mr. Stanton is still detained at Canton, where an
imperial edict has been issued depriving Lin of all authority,
in consequence of which the Lieut. Governor has assumed
charge of the province. The Viceroy has been ordered to re-
main at Cantoan until the arrival ofthe imperial commissioner
Keshen, who was expected to reach that place in a few
weeks. Opium 'is still disposed of in large quantities, and
fetches from 450 to 500 dollars per chest. The regular
trade is at a stand still, the regular merchants not being de-
sirous of purchasing until the result of the expected negotia-
tions be known. The consequence is, that immense quanti-
ties of c-tton, etc. are lying on hand, and becoming a com-
plete drug in the market. Should hostilities recommence,
which is extremely probable, it is supposed that the Chinese
will nevertheless carry on a considerable export trade in a
clandestine manner, as they appear willing to bring any thing
down to the shore for which money may be offered.
MACAO, Nov. 3.-Both the ChIinese authorities and mer-
chants appear to feel certain that there will bo an immediate
settlement ofdifferences and reopening of trade. But among
foreigners the impression is still general that this arises from
a confidence of being able, as usual, to circumvent by nego-
tiation, and that, without a heavier blow than has yet been
struck, it is impossible they can really intend to grant at once
the heavy demands of the British.
It is therefore expected that much difficulty and delay will
be experienced in the negotiations about to commence, and
that a resort to force will be ultimately requisite.
MACAO. Nov. 3.-In exports a limited trade goes on, ex-
cept in tea and Nankin silk, which continue rigidly interdict-
ed. The Louisa Baillie is taking in the last of the former
season's teas, which have been awaiting a conveyance to
TOONKOO, Oct. 14.-A brig, the Kite, was wrecked up
the coast, and the Chinese have got the crew in their posses-
sion, and say they will give them up when we give up Chusan.
From India the accounts are more favorable to British pol-
icy. Another victory bad been gained over the Belooches in
Scinde, some five hundred of them being killed. Confident
hopes were entertained that both Scinde and Affghanistan
would be tranquilized in a few months.
In the Punjab family dissensions between the widow and
brothers of the late No Metal Singh were apparently opening
the way for British intervention. All was quiet in Burmah,
but in Nepaul military preparations and suspicious movements
were still going on, and it was thought that in case of renew-
ed hostilities with China there would be a war also with the
The Turkish fleet, having been given up by Mehemet All,
sailed from Alexandria on the 21st of January. Commodore
Napier had returned to Alexandria, with the treaty, which
was agreed to by the Pacha. Ibrahlm had left Damascus for
Gaza, and preparations were going on for embarking his
This case was briefly touched upon in the House of Lords
on the 8th. It was introduced by the Earl of MOUNTCASn-
EL, who, after some remarks on the enormity of the proceed-
ings had in the State of New York, inquired of Lord MEL-
BOURNE whether the Government had any information, and
what steps had been taken.
The VISCOUNT replied, briefly, that information had been
received that Mr. McLeod's liberation had been demanded
by Mr. Fox, &c. As to the steps, he was sure that the House
would not expect him to give any atiswer at present. He

would only say that ministers had taken every means in their
power to secure the safety of her Majesty's subjects, &c.
In the House of Commons the same matter waa called up
by Lord Stanley, who said,
Seeing the noble Lord the Secretary for Foreign Affairs in
his place,he (Lord S.) should ask that question of which he had
given notice. This being a subject of so important a nature, and
coming forward at so critical a period, he was compelled to pre-
face the question he was about to put by a short statementof facts;
hut it should be only such a statement as thie rules of the House
[Here his Lordship stated the facts relating to the destruc-
tion of the Caroline, which, by the way, he called a schooner;
and then proceeded as follows :]
A representation of these proceedings was made by the nutho
rifles ofthe State of New York and the President of the United
States, and at the same time a counter-statement was drawn up
by the British authorities in Upper Ganada,and transmitted through
Mr. Pox, our Minister in th e United States, to the Government of
that country. In consequence of the conflicting nature of the evi-
dence thus produced, the President entered into communication
with Mr. Fox, and forwarded to him a copy ofthe evidence trans-
mitted froi9 the authorities of New York for the purpose of being
laid before her Majesty's Government. These papers were ac-
companied by a demand of reparation for what the despatch called
an outrage on the neutrality of the American territory.

The vast crowd of strangers whom a determina-
tion to witness the Inauguration brought to the
Seat of Government, has already considerably thin-
ned, and what remained of it was less visible yes-
terday than it would have been in consequence of
the spell of cold and keen weather which set in
on Thursday night. A great many strangers yet
remain, however, and of these a considerable pro-
portion will, no doubt, remain until after the end
of the extra session of the Senate.
Among the very many distinguished strangers
whom we have seen in the city, within the last
three days, ought to be mentioned the honorable
Gov. MOREHEAD, of the State of North Carolina ;
Ex-Governor OWEN, of the same State, and Ex-
Governor RlrNEn, of Pennsylvania.

It is understood that the PRESIDENT of the Uni-
ted Slates yesterday nominated to the Senate for
Secretaries of State, Treasury, War, and Navy, and
for Attorney-General and Postmaster-General, the
individuals whose selection by him for those trusts
has been heretofore announced. A part of these
nominations were confirmed, but not having time
to go through the consideration of the whole of
them before the usual hour of adjournment, the
decision upon the residue was postponed until

The Inaugural Address of the PRESIDENT was
carried to Baltimore on Thursday in the very quick
time of an hour and a quarter.

Among the gratifying incidents of Inaugu-
ration Day, was the assemblage of some of the
surviving officers and soldiers of the late war, who
were placed immediately in front of the President
in the procession, and conducted by Gen. LESLIE
COMBS, of Kentucky, in the costume of a Ken-
tucky volunteer, and such a one as Gen. HARRI-
SON himself generally wore while commanding on
the Northwestern frontier,
Tippecanoe, Mississinewa, and the Thames,
River Raisin and Dudley's Defeat, Fort Meigs,
and Fort Erie, Chippewa, Lundy's Lane, Bridge-
water, Queenstown, &c. were all represented by
the few veterans present; a majority of whom bore
honorable marks upon their persons of their dan-
gerous proximity to the enemy in war long time
After partaking of refreshments at the Presiden-
tial mansion, they returned to Gadsby's, and took
leave of each other in a most feeling manner, after
a brief address front Gen. COMBS. It is to be re-
gretted that the names of all present were not ob-
tained in time for this notice. We have been en-
abled to obtain only the following list:
Gen. JAMES MILLER, of Massachusetts.

Gen. Armistead to the Secretary of War.
TAMPA, (FL.) FEB. 14,1841.
SIR : Your communication of the lst instant was received
yesterday. I am gratified with the approbationyou have been
pleased to express of my measures, and shall use every exer-
tion to merit its continuance.
Since I had the honor of addressing you on the 1st instant,
thirty Seminoles have come in at Fort Armistead. A mixed
party has arrived here from Fort Clinch-about thirty Tal-
lahassees and forty Mickasukies-among the latter a sub-
Yesterday, there came in the brother of a principal Micka-
sukie sub-chief, Coosa Tustenuggee, and several of his war-
riors. His avowed purpose is to treat, and he has sent a run-
ner to Halich Tustenuggee, who is expected daily. These
chiefs are expected to return for their people, who may be
expected by the last of the month. Should this desired oc-
currence take place, which is more than probable, I can but
conjecture that the remaining hostiles will sue for peace, par-
ticularly as there exists a strong peace party among them, and
runners are now out to induce them to come in.
West of the Suwanniee river five runners are now out.
With their return I expect the most favorable intelligence, as
I presume many of the runaway Creeks will accompany them,
with the small remaining party of the Tallahassees.
To the chiefs who have come in I have promised two to
five thousand dollars; to the common men thirty dollars and
a rifle. I most earnestly request the sanction ot these offers,
as will as immediate means to fulfil my promises, either by
despatching the sum to the agent at New Orleans, or forward
ing it here to Captain Page, in whom I have found every de-
sire to aid me il collecting these people.
There are now about two hundred and "seventy Indians at
this place, and between thirty and forty of the Seminoles at
Sarssota. A vessel is now preparing to convey one hundred
and fifty to New Orleans, and will sail in a few days; an-
other will follow shortly after. I shall retain some for ne-
cessary purposes; among the number, Echo-Emathla, the
Tallahassee chief.
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Brig. Gen. Comn. Army of Florida.
Hon. SECRETARY OF WAR, Washington.

The age of toilsome industry is gone-an evil of sadder
import and consequence than the exit of the age of chivalry.
Two advertisements were recently published in a newspaper;
one for a clerk in a store, the other for an apprentice to learn
the blacksmith's trade. The number ot applicants in one
day for the former place was fifty, for the latter not one; upon
which the New York Sun judiciously remarks, what a sad
illustration is this of the mischievous effect that has been
produced upon the young men of the day by the inflated,
ruinous course which the business of the country and the af-
fairs of life generally have taken during late years. The
mechanical pursuits of life have got to be regarded pretty
much through the whole country, and especially in the North-
ern Atlantic States, in nearly the same light as labor is look-
ed upon in the Southern slave States; and, with a majority of
our young men, want, if not beggary-artifice, if not knave-
ry, is regarded as preferable to the comparative competence
which can at all times be procured by honest industry, em-
ployed in those laborious occupations which give to the coun-
try its wealth, and to society its most useful and brightest or-
naments. When a different state of feeling prevails on this
subject, then-and not till then-shall we see less of idletass,

with its attendants, dissoluteness, poverty, and dishonesty,
poisoning the minds of the thousands of youth into whose
keeping, ere long, the interests and support of society and of
the country will fall.

The ships in port are gaily decorated with flags,
and at the Whig head-quarters and all the public
places the National ensign is displayed. A salute
of two hundred and thirty-four guns-one for each
electoral vote General HARISON received-was
fired this morning. A grand ball, which a thou-
sand persons are expected to attend, will be giv-
en to-night.
Our new Collector retains all Mr. HoYT's de-
puties, clerks, &c. Not one removal, I believe,
has been made, and the men whose principal
business for years has notoriously been elec-
tioneering for Mr. VAN BUREN, now laugh at the
idea of being disturbed.
Two bearers of despatches, one from Mr. STE-
VENSON, and the other from the British Govern-
ment, came out in the President.
The news from England has had very little-
effect on our markets. Cotton is a trifle lower,
but holders are not disposed to sell. Flour is not
affected. There has been no demand for export
for some time.
The great depreciation in the value of State
stocks,particularly those ofIndiana and Illinois, has
had the effect to create distrust as to the solvency of
some of the free bantiks in this State that have
pledged those stocks for the redemption of their
circulating notes, and the notes of such as have
not made provision for their redemption here are
selling to-day at.3 per cent. discount. It has been,
another blue day in WallP street. All stocks are
down. U. S. Bank closed at 161. New York,
Indiana, and Illinois bonds fell about 1 per cent.
Mr. BRowNsoN, editor of the Boston Quarterly
Review, lectures here to-night on the Democra-

Mr. HOYT has published a correspondence be-
tween himself, Mr. WOODBURY, and Mr. BUTLER,
relative to the difficulty between himself and the
'Treasury. Mr. Butler, it appears, has commenc-
ed a suit against Mr. Hoyt's sureties. In the cor-
respondence published there is no mention of the
sums received by Mr. Hoyt from importers for com-
promises. Is the whole correspondence published?

Messrs. EDITORS: The inauguration of the venerable Pa-
triot and Pioneer of the West into the office of Chief Magis-
*rate of this Union, on yesterday, was well calculated to pro-
duce in the mind the most pleasurable sensations. To my-
self, the moment was one of the moat intense interest I ever
remember to have experienced. Forty-eight years ago I first
saw Gen. HARRISON, then a subaltern in the army of Gen.
WAYNE, on the banks of the Ohio river, where the city of
Cincinnati now stands ; and of all the immense multitude who
witnessed the exercises of yesterday, as far as I am informed,
only three of these were, in 1793, living within the limits of
the Northwestern Territory, namely, the PRESIDENT himself,
Gen. S. VAN RENSSELAER, of New York, then a Captain of
Dragoons in WAYNE'S Army, and the undersigned. And it
is also worthy of remark, that among the first white children
born within the bounds of Gen. HARRISON'S government of
Indiana, was my son, Lieut. STEPHEN JOHNSTON, fur near
twenty years past an officer of the United States Navy, and
who was present on yesterday, witnessing the inauguration.
I served in the Indian department under Gov. HARRISON,
down to the period of his quitting the army in 1815. None
will hear of his elevation with more pleasurethan the Indians.
Several of the Chiefs have already sent messages to myself
expressive of this feeling. His government over them was
merciful and liberal, wise and just.
WASHINGTON, MARCH 5,1841. of Piqua, Ohio.

Messrs. EDITORS: I was in the House of Representatives
last evening, (26th February,) and enjoyed the rich treat of
hearing the eloquent HOFFMAN upon an amendment of his
to the Naval Bill, lprovidting for the erection of barracks at
certain points for the accommodation of the Marine Corps.
He gave a glowing description of the indispensable import-
ance of the marine to the naval service, and portrayed, in
language that touched every patriotic heart, the valor that
had been displayed by the Marine Corps on the land as well
as on the ocean. My object in intruding upon your atten-
tion is to request that your Reporter will carefully prepare the
remarks of Mr. HOFFMAN, and that you will give them a
conspicuous place in your paper, that the country may duly
appreciate the much-neglected and much-abused Marine

IT ia a rare occurrence in the history of popular remedies, that
anyarticle should be found to maintain a good reputation for
twenty years together, and continue to receive fresh testimony in
its favor from gentlemen of known intelligence and integrity.
Such, however, is the fortune ofBECKWITH'S ANTI DYSPEP-
TIC PILLS, as will appear from the following letters, in addition
to the large mass of evidence heretofore published:
From Dr. E. Markets, President of the Female Institution near
Columbia, S. C.
BARHAMSVILLE, (S. C.) JuNE 15, 1840.
DEAa SIR : 1 beg leave to offer you my testimony in favor of a
iredicine calculated to do much good in itself, and to supersede
the introduction into families of pernicious quack medicines.
Your Anti-Dyspeptic Pills were prescribed by me for a lady
in whose case the usual remedies hiad failed to afford any relief.
The affection came under the class of what is usually called Tic
Dolorous, affecting one or more sound teeth, with severe headache,
visual derangement, nervous spasms and numbness, the latter to
so alarming an extent as to render the patient for some time in-
eensible to the most stimulating external applications. I directed
three or more of your pills to be taken as soon as approaches of a
pas'oxysm were observed. The result was, that in every instance
where timely administered, they either warded off the attack, or
rendered it very mild. In a few weeks after using the pills, the
patient, from a state of much languor and comparative exhaustion,
increased in strength, flesh, and spirits, and now enjoys excellent
Since witnessing the above cases, I have prescribed your Pills
in many cares of derangements of the stomach attended with sym-
pdhetjc headache ; the result has been in every instance favora-
ble. n giving you these facts, I believe I am contributing to the
cause of umanauty, and do not hesitate to say that I know of no
family medicine more calculated to afford relief in abnormed af-
fection of the stomach, end sympathetic affections thence arising.
I ant, dear sir, yours, &c. E. MARKS.
P. S I ite-nd to intrduce them into our Institution.
Dr. J. LzCKWITH, Raleigh, N. C.

From Maj. Samuel McComb.
DEAR Sin : A simple acknowledguent of benefits is certainly
due froui those who receive, and buta reasonable return to those
who confer them ; as such, please to receive this letter containing
a very brief ac-count of tny sufferings, and of the relief I obtained
from the use of Bickwith a AuLti-Dyspeptic PIle.
When I resided in the western part of North Carolins, I was long
and severely afflicted with a diseased liver and dyspepsia; my
nerves were it a wretched condition, my mind weakened and da-
pressed, wilt occasional attacks of ulindness, pain, and lightness
in the head; stomach and bowels greatly deranged; alternate cos-
tiveness and painful diarrhea; strength and flesh wasted, so
that I was reduced in weight from 195 to 120. In 1834 your Pills
were recommended to me, and 1 commenced taking them, three
a day; and I cnntinetd them for some months before any material
change in my health took place. 1 then began toimprove,and I
am happy to say that I recovered the tone of my stomach and
bowels, ate any timing I liked, and now weigh 160 lbs. and have as
much health and yrcngth as could be expected in one at the age
of 61. 1 believe lowe my relief from that dreadful disease and a
lengthening of my days to the use of your pills, for which please
to accept my best titanks, and wishes for your happiness.
Respectfully, yours, &c. SAMUEL MoCOMB.

From Mr. Wan. Irving Hyslop.
NEW YOnK, JULY 11, 1840-220 PEARL ST.
MY DEAR SIR : I have delayed for several months sending to
you the acknowledgments which I have felt to be due from me for
the benefits I have received at your hands.
I had been in a low state of health nearly two years, suffering
from indig-stion, palpitation at the heart, iheadach, &o. &e. ren-
dering rme extremely nervous, and experiencing all the many
changing and distressing symptoms in mind and body attendant
upon this malady. I haid the advice of several eminent physicians,
which I followed without any seeming benefit, and was induced
to visit the South and pass my winters there, with the hope of pro-
trictinp an uncomfortable life. At Columbus, Ga. on my way out,
I met with a friend, who, on hearing my complaints, advised me
to give Beckwith's Anti-Dyspeptic Pills a fair trial. I resolved
to follow his advice, and took four boxes according to the dirpe-
tions. Tht effect produced was most happy, giving me ease and
comfort unknown before for years. And now, sir, I am enjoying
health and elasticity of both mind and body, for which you have
my most sincere thanks, and the best regard of a friend.

lHAI1.t-Notunfrequently have we had reason rtocommend
to public notice the talents and skill of M. Anguste Grandjean, of
No. 1, Barclay street. His treatise on the Hair is a production
both learned and eloquent; it shows that he has studied deeply,
and that he has full ability satisfactorily to make known the result
of his investigations. It is an old adage," the proof of the pud-
ding is in the eating;" on this principle, the best mode of testing
the truth of M. Grandjean's theories is to make trial of the pre-
paration which he so ably recommends. Experiment, it can be
averred, has already, in many instances, proved the virtues of the
Compositions to which we refer, and we feel confident that all
future experiment will butserve to establish their great reputation.
The preparation known as "Grandjean's Composition" has
been so long a favorite, that it is almost useless to praise it; but
the "Eau Lustrale" is a recent invention, and deman-Is that faith-
ful notice to which its merits aspire. It cleanses, and at the same
time beautifies the hair, giving it a rich curl and an exquisite gloss.
One of its chiet properties (and this will recommitend it especially
to the ladies) is, that it keeps the hair safely in whatever style it
may be dressed, resisting both motion and moisture. Thus much
have we thought proper to say, but if we were to go on u,; ir.- t.,
a month, we could not present such convincing arguments in favor
of the Compositions as the use of them would speedily furnish.-

PNiHE AIR-TIGHT ilSTOVE.-Known aid warranted
i to be superior to every other, in economy of lime and ex-
pense ; in case of management; in comfort, convenience, safety,
neatness ; in exemlition from dust anti smoke; and in the healthi-
ness, pleasantness, uniformity, and certainly of its temperature.
One kind for wood, and another for coal; price $6 to 8$20; weight
30 to 60 pounds. It is new in structure, and still more new in
management; so that it MUST be made, set, andi used, strictly by
the printed directions, or it sinks, more or less, towards the bar-
barism of other stves. It has so far been brought into notice
and use almost wholly by the spontaneous efforts of lesdihg citi-
zens, chiefly professional, and no cane is known of tbeir turning
back or repenting. For students and invalids it is without a ri-
val. Colleges, &c. by early application, mtiay obtain terms highly
and permanently favorable for all connected with them.

V1 R. J, Meigs, Esq. Nashville, Tennessee, says of this
stove : "Its performance is all that can be wished in a stove. I
think it scarcely possible to excel it, either in the agreeable tem-
perature of the air which it produces,, r in the economy and neat-
ness with whirh the effect is produced. In short, I am charmed
with it, and will ever be without it." After using it a year, he
says : "Its merits surpass, in my opinion, all that can be said of
it." Rev. J. N. Campbell, D). D. Albany, New York, says: "I
find it to answer your description, and to exceed my expectations
in every particular. I am entirely satisfied that it is in all re-
spects superior to any other stove in use." Again hlie says, (April
1, 1840,) 1 have used the Air-tight Stove for tie last 6 months,
in my study, equal, in its dimensions, to a room 14 feet square
and 10 feet high. 1 have burned, in that time, about two-thirds
of one cordeo wood. It is perfectly safe and neat. Itequ lizes
the temperature almost pertfeetly, and enables the user to regulate
the degree of it at pleasure. It fully equals, in my opinion, all
that the inventor says of it." J. T. Rice. Esq. of Albany, says:
I have had one in use about 4 months, (last winter,) in a room
of the dimensions of eleven feet by twelve, of ordinary height,
and during that time have kept fire dlay and night, with an
abundance of heat, with less than a half cord of (dry hickory)
wood. 1 consider it by far thie greatest improvement in stoveuu
for heating a room, of any that I have ever been acquainted with.'
Two business men in Albany used each a cord of mtuple wood in
their counting-rooms last winter, and they say : The equality of
heat is astonishing-a summer-like heat throughout iime room,
It hIs nearly quit its cost, and, from the comfort received from it,
[weJ could not be induced to part with it." Dr. S, Kidder,
Charlestown, Mass. says : I have .had this steve ia use about 7
years, have found it fully to answer the description ofl the itnsen-
tot, and, with proper attention to the doorand damper, I will ven-
ture to say it will be found tie most comfortable, convenien', anud
economical stove of any in use." (J..Salter, M. 1). of Boston,
supplied his stove with mel, last winter, only twice a week.) Rev.
E. C. lTracy, Editor of the Vermont Chronicle, says : Its per
feet safety at all times, the saving of fuel, the little attention that
it requires, the uniform and equable temperature that it keeps up
in all parts ol ithe romt, [the thermometer in the back part of a
large of en room keeping within half a degree of the same point
for 10 or 12 hours together,] ehL summer-like atmosphere that it
livess you in the severest winter day, are excellencies that render
it literally incomparable." Rev. H. Curties, Brandon, Vt. says:
"1 should be unwilling to dispense with it for any consideration.
I have found it an excellent article for a sick room, producing a
mild and equable temperature, night and day. I am confident
that no convenience heretofore possessed can compare with this
in cases of pulmonary affection as a substitute for removal to a
Southern climate during our severe winterseasons." Thie inven
tor says : The Air-tight Stove was invented in curing a very
dangerous pulmonary attack ; and, in two or three such attacks,
I have found it more effectual than every thing else by its allaying
the cough, (by mteans ofits uniformly soft and moist atmosphere,)
removing it entirely in a few days, and absolutely putting all
coughs and colds at defiance, more even than the best summer
weather, and without its weakening effects. I would not have
gone ten miles to the climate of Italy." nov f6-wtf

equal Dr. 'Taylor's Balsam of Liverwort. Only look at the im-
mense multitude of the certificates of cures we have published-
cures this medicine has mads. when no other was of anyy use
Remember this is no quackery ; on the contrary, it is made by a
regular physician, who has spent twenty years in seeking a reinm-
edy for trut awful disease, consumption. This medicine is
supported by the whole Medical Faculty, to their eternal honor lie
it said. They throw aside prejudice and false practice, and own
publicly that this medicine alone can stay this deadly disease and
death. When such men as Drs. Rogers, Cheesman, Wilson, Au-
derson, Smnith, Hofftman, anid many others, who ornament their
profession, and honor society-when such men say )r. 'Taylor's
medicine is a certain remedy," who shall say no? No one. Let
the sick hope, then, for health, and use this vegetable remedy,
and they shall not hope in vain.

Wonderful cure of Consumption.-Altbough Di. Taylor's
Balsam of Liverwort has found hundreds of advocates, and has
produced so large a number of testimonials in its favor, I cannot
withhold my sniall meed of praise. BeDing predisposed to eon-
sumption, both by peculiar formation andt hereditary transmisa-
sion, I tried every means to cheek this disease, anid strengthen ai
naturally weak constitution. I spenout two years at Pisa, one in
Rome, two in Florence, and one in the south of France, seeking
meantime the advice of the best physicians. Two years since I
returned to this county y in about the same situation as when I left.
I had seen in tihe reading rooms in Europe much said in favor of
Dr. Taylor's Balsam of Liverwort, and as soon as I arrived in the
city of New York 1 used it, and in three months I was so well
that I concluded I could safely pass the winter here, and did so.
I have used an occasional bottle now and then during Ihe time,
but am now in as good health as is possible. My cough has wholly
ceased, and my lungs have every feeling of health. Dr. G. Snmih
and Dr. Post, of New York, were my physicians, and now say
they did believe mu incurable. J. PROUTY,

has had an experience of five years in leaching, devotes iuis en-
tire attention to a number of pupils, not exceeding twenty, who
are expected to be undir twelve years of age when they are comn-
mitted to his care. The location ia pleasant ant healthful; being
about seven noiles from Norwalk, and fifty from the city of New

steamers. The pupils are all members of the family ofthe Prin-
cipal ; they board, lodge, and are instructed under thie same roof
with himself, and are ,.t all times under lis immediate supervi-
sion. The discipline of the school is mild and parental, such as its
peculiar character and thie age of its pupils naturally suggest.

encourages his pupils to consider him as their friend as well as
their guide, and all hia requirements as having reference only to
their own ultimate good. Particular attention is paid to their ex-
ternal habits and deportment, as weul as mo their moral, mental,
social, and physic ml cuhlure. It is the great object of the school,
by patient, thorough, and effective instruction, to develop, strength-
en, and polish, in just proportion, the entire nature of the pupil.
All the various branches pertaining to a complete English and
mathematical education are taught. A teacher of vocal music is
engaged, at the expense of the Principal, to give instruction in
singing one evening every week during the winter term. Time
secholsastc year is divided into two sessions of 22 weeks each, com-
mencing on the first Mondays of November and May.

official report of its merits is founded upon twenty years'
experience by Dr. Coming, Inspector of Army Hospitals, commu-
nicated to the discoverer, Sir James Murray:
"The Solution of Magnesia is found particularly beneficial as a
pleasing sedative and aperient, in all cases of Irritalien orAcid-
ity of the Stomach, particularly during pregnancy, febrile com-
plaints, infantile disorders, or sea-sickuess.
An ounce or two of the Solution speedily removes heartburn,
acid eructations, sourness, or irregular digestions of females and
2hitdre ni.
In the Army and 'avy,it has been found tocompose the stom-
ach in a few minutes, after any excess or hard drinking.
The Solution is of itself an agreeable aperient, but its laxative
properties can be much augmented bv taking with it, or directly
afier it, a little lemon juice mixed with sugar and water, or even
Cream of Tartar Tea; in this manner a very agreeable efervescent
draught can be safely taken at any time during fever or thiist.
"i The antiseptic qualities of this Solution, owing toa the presence
of so much carbonic acid, have been fiund very valuable in putrid
and other fevers. As a lotion for the mouth, it sweetens the breath,
and thie Magnesia clears time teeth from tartar.
For preventing the evolution or deposition of Uric Acid, in
gout or gravel, the efficacy of the dissolved Magnesia was long
since authenticated by Dra. M'Donnell and Richardson, and Sir
James Murray.
The Solution has almost invariably succeeded in removing
the fits, spasms, headaches, and gastric coughs to which deli-
cate persons are subject from acids and cruaities of the stomach
and bowels."

Extract from the Medico- Chirurgical Review for April, 1829,
edited by Dr. JAots JoHiasoN, Physician-extraordinary to the late
King, &c. &c. :
Pellucid Solution ef Magnesia.-This veryuseful and ele-
gant preparation we have been trying for some months, as an Ape-
rient ant-acid in dyspeptic complaints, attended with acidity and
constipation, and with very great benefit. It has the advantage
over common Magnesia in being dissolved, andtherefore not liable
to accumulate in thie bowels. It is decidedly superior to Soda or
Potash, on account of its saperient quality, and of its having no ten-
dency to reduction of ltiesh and strength, which the two carbonates
above mentioned certainly tend to, when long continued and taken
in considerable quantities. We hope Sir James Murray, the dis-
coverer of the process for preparing this medicine, will take the
trouble to make it more generally accessible to the public in this
metropolis, there being only one ortwoauthorized agents here."

Sir HtUMPHRYa DAVY testified that this Solution forms soluble
combinations with uric acid salts in cases ofgout and gravel,there-
by counteracting their injurious tendency when other alkalies and
even Magnesia itself had failed. For sale at
