IN CHANCERY, NOVEMBER TERM, 1841.
William H. Booth,
John K. West, Louisa Livingston, executrix of Edward Livings-
ton, deceased, Henry D. Gilpin, and Hon. Thomas Ewing, Sec
retary of the Treasury of the United States.
HE bill of complaint in this cause in substance sets forth
That in the year 1821 the complainant recovered in Jefferson
Circuit Court of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, by the judg-
ment of the said Court, a judgment against the defendant John K.
West for the eumof $5,000, with interest at the rate of 6 per cent.
per annum, from the 19th day of March, 1819, besides costs of
suit; that the said judgment remains in full force and virtue, and
wholly unsatisfied; that execution was duly issued upon said judg-
ment, but that the said West had not, nor now has, any property
or effects which could or can be reached by said process of exe-
cution; and that therefore nothing has been made thereby; and
that the complainant has exhausted all thie means which the law
affords him of obtaining payment of the debt and satisfaction of
the said judgment, and is and must be remediless except in
The bill proceeds to state that the defendant West had, and
has, certain claims upon the Republic of Mexico, provided for in
the Convention of 1840, between that Republic and the United
States; that the said claims were prosecuted by and in the name
of Louisa Livingston, executrix of the late Edward Livingston,
who had been employed in his life time by the said West to pro-
secute the same; that the said Board has awarded to the said
Louisa, executrix as aforesaid, and in trust for the said West, the
sum of $43,662, to be paid by the said Republic of Mexico to her
in trust as aforesaid; that, in pursuance of the act of Congress, the
Secretary of the Treasury has granted and issued, or is about
granting and issuing, certificates on the said award for the amount
thereof, which certificates may be transferred; and that the
moneys receivable therefore may be removed beyond the process
of this Court, and so the complainant may be prevented from hav-
ing recourse thereto to satisfy the said debt so due to him as afore-
said ; that Henry D. Gilpin, Esq. is the agent or attorney of the
said Louisa Livingston, and has received, or will receive, the
said certificates, and carry them beyond the jurisdiction of this
Court, unless prevented by the interference of the Court. Thib
bill then prays that the said Secretary of the Treasury may be de-
creed to withhold the issuing'or granting of the said certificates,
and that the said H. D. Gilpin may also be adjudged and ordered,
if he shall have received the said certificates, or any part thereof,
or shall hereafter receive the same, to hold and retain the same
subject to the payment of the said debt to the complainant; and
that the said award and certificates, or so much thereof as maybe
necessary for the purpose, be made by this Court applicable to
the payment of the said debt, and that general relief may be grant-
ed, and so forth.
And forasmuch as it is (alleged in the said bill that the said
John K. West and the said Louisa Livingston are not, nor is either
of them, within the jurisdiction of this Court, but reside at New
Orleans, in Louisiana, it is now, on this twenty-second day of No-
vember, in the year of our Lord 1841, by the Court, ordered that
the complainant make publication of the substance of said bill in
the National Intelligencer, published in the city of Washington,
once a week for the space offourmonths prior to the first Monday
in April next, thereby notifying the said John K. West and the
said Louisa Livingston to be and appear before the Court here in
their proper persons, or by solicitor, on or before the said first Mon-
day in April next, to answer to the several matters and things in
the said bill set forth; and that, such publication being duly made,
in default of suoh appearance and answer, the said bill and the
several matters thereof be taken as confessed against the said
John K. West and the said Louisa Livingston.
By order of the Court.

WASHINGTON, MARCH 2, 1842.
DEAn SIR : I have no hesitation in allowing you to state that I
have known of your remedy for coughs being used on several oc-
casions with great success, that I have found relief from it myself,
and believe it to be a useful medicine.
Respectfully, yours, P. S. KEY.
WASHINGTON, MARCH 6, 1842.
DEAa Sin ; Upon your renewed request, I cannot, with justice,
any longer withhold from you my certificate of confidence in the
efficacy of the "Life Preserver" as a cure for hoarseness and
In the fall of 1840 I was much exposed to night air, and often
took cold, which was attended by hoarseness and a slight cough,
without fever or much other indisposition. In December I was
scarcely ever free from this complaint, and during the early part
of the next February 1 was never without some degree of hoarse-
ness or cough ; until, despairing of the sufficiency of Pease's
Boarhound Candy" and common remedies, I was induced to make
trial of your Life Preserver. Before the middle of March last,
'he use of your medicine seemed to be the great cause cf relief
from the hoarseness and slight cough which had so long annoyed
me, and which all the usual remedies had failed to remove.
Ifany one be led to 4nake the experiment, as I did so happily,
of your offered good, he will at least find in it as pleasant and
harmless a physic as can be administered in the mode prescribed
by you. I am, very respectfully yours,
JOHN LEEDS KERR.

RS. M. N. GARDNER'S genuine Indian Balsam
of Liverwort and Hoarliound, for coughs, colds, &c.
It is, without any exaggeration or exception, one of the greatest
discoveries ever made in this part of the country. It has say ved,
within two years, hundreds from the grave. It has been sent for
from all parts of the country that have the least knowledge of its
glorious effects for such a simple vegetable compound. It bhs
been found to be extremely efficacious in the following diseases,
viz Consumptions, common coughs, colds, hooping cough, dif-
ficulty of breathing, asthma, influenza, quinsy, phthisic, spitting
of blood, croup, weakness, pain in the side, want of sleep, &e.
Likewise, there is nothing existing so good for the liver complaint
as this medicine : it has been taken with great success. This bal -
sam, for all complaints of this kind, exceeds all preparations ever
offered to the public. In the country where it has been adminis-
tered, it has had most wonderful, yes, wonderful effects. There
could be hundreds of certificates mentioned, where it has proved
itself a perfect and safe remedy for all these complaints.
SN. B. The public are particularly cautioned to inquire for MWe.

on the sides, leaving a space between them. She is about five
feet two or three inches high, is a good seamstress and house
servant. I purchased her upwards of four years since ol George
H. Keerl, Esq., Baltimore, with whom she resided a number of
years, and was raised by Thomas Mundell, Esq. near Piscqta-
way, in this county. I will give the above reward for her appre-
hension, if beyond the limits of Prince George's county or Dis-
trict of Columbia, and 30 dollars if in said county or district, upon
delivery to me, or commitment to jail so that I get her again.
N. B.-Camilla took a great variety of clothing with her. I
only recollect a black stuff and a black calico dress, with red
spots, a plaid blanket shawl, and straw bonnet.

THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 1842.
The PRESIDENT of the Senate laid before the body a
communication from the Post Office Department, in answer
to a resolution adopted on the 2d instant, transmitting a state-
ment showing the number of post routes on which the mails
are suspended on the Sabbath day, and the amount saved to
the Department by such suspension, with the name of the
State r States in which such routes exist.
The following memorials and petitions were presented and

mere, and true, and not merely nominal, independence to all.

THE NEUTRALITY LAW.
The Senate then took up the bill to revive and continue in
force "An act supplementary to an act entitled an act in
addition to the act for the punishment of certain crimes
against the United States, and to repeal the acts therein
mentioned.' approved March 10th, 1838.
Mr. RIVES remarked that, as it was likely that the bill
would lead to discussion, he would propose that some day be
Designated for its consideration.
Mr. BUCHANAN expressed his opinion that the bill
would not lead to the difficulty which the Senator anti-
Mr. RIVES was perfectly willing to take it up and dis-
pose of it at the present time. The whole design of the bill
was to add some supplementary provisions to the neutrality
law of 1838, and he hoped that the sense of the Senate would
be taken, and that the bill would be passed to a third read-
The bill wasr then ordered to be engrossed for a third
reading; as were also the following:
A bill relative to the act entitled "An act granting land
to certain exiles from Poland," approved June 30,1834.
A bill for the relief of Hezekiah L. Thistle.
The bills for the relief of Mary Snow and Thankful Rey-
naolds were read a third time and passed.
The following resolution of Mr. Mzataic, heretofore
submitted as an amendment to the joint rules of the two
Houses, was taken up for consideration, viz.
Resolved, That no amendment shall be received or made in
either House to general appropriation bills, except for object au-
thorized by some pre-existing law, and except for contingent ex-
penses and compensation to persons employed by the two Houses.
The question being upon the passage of the resolution,
Mr. WOODBRIDGE called for the yeas and nays.
Mr. LINN said that at the called session an appropriation
for the Western frontier was refused on the ground that no
estimates had been before the committee which had charge of
the subject, and that no appropriation had been especially re-
commended by the Department. He would ask the Senator
from Maryland whether an appropriation for the defensive
works in that quarter, created and made by law, coming from
the House as an amendment to the general appropriation
bill, would be within the meaning of the resolution '1 If it was
the design of the resolution to cut them off from making ap-
propriations for the Western forts he would certainly inter-
pose his objection.
Mr. MERRICK reminded the Senator that the words of
the resolution were that no amendment shall be made ex.
cept for objects authorized by some pre-existing law;" and, as
a consequence, if a fort was'authorized to be erected by law,
the resolution would not preclude an amendment to an ap-
propriation bill for that purpose.
Yr. SEVIER inquired whether an appropriation for the
Cumberland Road would be in conformity with a pre-exist-
ing law %1
Mr. MERRICK replied that the Senator was as compe-
tent to judge of that as himself.
Mr. SEVIER observed that even if it should be necessary
to construct a fort or an arsenal on the frontiers, forthwith,
and a recommendation should come from the War Depart-
ment itself, this rule would prevent it from being done by an
amendment to a general appropriation bill, in the absence of
a pre-existing law. Therefore it would be absurd to pass
such a rule; and he moved that the resolution be laid up*n the
table, and called for the yeas and nays, but withdrew his
motion for the present to enable-
Mr. YOUNG to say that if on a former occasion this rule
had been in operation his friend from Michigan (Mr. WooD-
nBrl DO) would not have been successful in obtaining an ap-
propriation of $150,000 for the erection of a fort at Detroit, in
a section of country the very first to be attacked in case of a
war with Great Britain; yet the resolution of the Senator
from Maryland would cut off all these kind of appropriations.
If the rule had been in operation last session, the appropria-
lion of $5,000 for the purchase of a site for a Western armo-
ry would not have been made and instead ofgetting that sum
They would not have obtained five cents.
Mr. LINN further opposed the resolution.
Mr. MERRICK replied; and the resolution was then laid
aside for the purpose of proceeding with the orders of the day.
The Senate then proceeded to the consideration of the reso-
luMtios of Mr. CLAY, proposing an augmentation of the duty
on imports, and a diminution of the expenditures of the Go-
Mr. EVANS addressed the Senate for more than two
hours, and replied at length to the remarks of Mr. Woon-
DORY, delivered several days since.
The Senate then went into an Executive session, and after
some time spent therein the doors were opened, and it ad-
FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1842.
The PRESIDENT of the Senate laid before the body a
communication from the Postmaster General, made in com-
pliance with a resolution, in relation to the routes on which
the mail had been dispensed with on Sundays, and the saving
of the Department on the same.
Also, from the Department of War, in compliance with a
resolution, relating to the lead mines of Illinois. The Secre-
tary sent the report of the Ordnance bureau, which contain-
ed all the correspondence on the subject.
i Aim, a communication from the Legislative Assembly of
Wisconsin, in r-elation to the boundary line between that
Territory and the State of Michigan. This paper says the
o only true line is the middle of Lake Michigan, and protests
againstt any other.
The following memorials and petitions were presented and
appropriately referred :
ByMr.CHOATE: From ship-owners and ship-masters
of Newburyport, Massachusetts, asking that the pilot law of
1837 may not be repealed. -
By Mr. CLAY : From certain glass.cutters of New York,
zusking protection to their manufacture.
Mr. WILLIAMS submitted the following:
Reeolvu, That the Secretary of the Navy be directed to com-
snunicate to the Senate the names of all officers now in the naval
service of the United States, designating the periods of their ad-
mission and the dates of their present commissions ; also, the time
of their respective sea service prior to the 1st January, 1824; also,
the time of service of all such officers, together with the present
passed midshipmen, since the let of January, 1824, at sea and on
other duty, and showing the same In separate columns.
Mr. WILIAsMS desired the consideration of the resolution
at once. He had submitted one some two years ago much
like the present, but it had not been answered, and he was
desirous to have the whole information up to the present time.
Mr. MANGUM said the information sought for in the re-
solution was important, and he hoped it would be adopted.
The resolution was adopted.
The following bills were then severally read a third time
and passed :
A bill to revive and continue in force An act supplemen-
tary to an act entitled an act in addition to the act for the
punishment of certain crimes against the United States, and
to repeal the acts therein mentioned,'" approved March
A bill relative to the act entitled" An act granting land to
certain exiles from Poland," approved June 30, 1834.
A bill for the relief of Hezekiah L. Thistle.
The Senate then proceeded to take up the general orders,
when the following bills, having been considered in Commit.
tee of the Whole, and after being explained by Mr. SMITH,
of Indiana, were ordered to be engrossed and read a third
A bill for the relief of Thomas M. Isett.
A bill for the relief of Robert B. Lewis.
A bill for the relief of Valerian Allain.
Mr. MERRICK moved to take up the resolution submit-
ted by him some time since in relation to the adoption of the
xew joint rule, &.e.
Mr. HENDERSON said the resolution involved matters
which some Senators were desirous te investigate, who were
not then in their seats, and he should therefore move to lay
it on the table.
Mr. MERRICK said the resolution had been before the
Senate for the last twenty days, and he was exceedingly de-
sirous to have it disposed of in some shape or other; and
gave native that he would call it up on Monday, when he
ShopeJd the affair would be decided in some way. The reso-
lution was laid on the table.
The Senate then proceeded to take up the bill to remove
the office of Surveyor General and to change the location of

SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1842.
The following letter is from a most respectable
and creditable source. The statements which it
contains, as our readers will see, are of great
public importance at the present moment.
DEAR SIR : Believing that any information relating to the
commerce of our country will be acceptable to you, the un-
dersigned,a mercantile firm of Savannah, interested in vessels
that are employed in the freighting business, respectfully beg
leave to ask your attention to the enclosed price current, con-
taining a list of vessels at the port of Savannah, on the 25th
ultimo, by reference to which you will observe that the ag-
gregate of tonnage there registered and enrolled was at that
time 18,389 tons- Tons.
Of which were English -14,928
French 65 .
14 English ships -
2 American ships -
12 English barques -
1 American barque -
1 French barque -
1 English brig -
9 American brigs, employed princi-
pally in coastwise freighting
The amount of English tonnage at other Southern ports
is also unusually large, and has been for some time constantly
increasing. It is the opinion of many judicious persons ac-
quainted with the subject, that nearly if not quite one-half of
the cotton crop of the United States will be exported in
British and other foreign vessels.
We have taken the liberty, sir, of inviting your attention
to this subject, because we deem it of great importance to our
commercial interests, as the present state of things is in our
judgment the principal obstacle to the success of American
freighting vessels, the business of which at the present time
is laboring under very great depression, arising, as we think,
in a great degree from the large number of foreign vessels that
are allowed to compete on equal terms with our own.
The following extract from the correspondence
of the New York Commercial Advertiser pos-
sesses more than ordinary interest for the read-
ers of this paper, from the terms in which it
speaks of the Americanism, the political science
and the distinguished literary ability of the Euro-
pean Correspondent of this paper, whose inter-
esting letters shed a flood of light upon the insti-
tutions and affairs of Europe :
PARIS, FnRUIARY 1.
"The affair of the Creole is making some noise here, as
you will learn from the papers. It is fortunate 'for us that
we have some countrymen in Europe who are capable of vin-
dicating our Government and our institutions, in answer to
the charges brought against them by the violent press of
England, through which American affairs are but too gene-
rally known on this continent. Among these who may be
named as deserving their country's thanks in this respect, I
delight to mention our distinguished Ambassador at Berlin,
the Hon. HENRY WHEATON, who is spending a portion of
the winter here. His articles in the papers of this city are
admirable. Mr. CASS, our excellent and able representative
at this court, has also just published a pamphlet entitled
" An Examination of the Question now in Discussion be-
tween the American and British Governments, concerning
the Right of Search, by an American." It is translated into
French, and has left the press to-day, I have been told. It
must make a good impression. And then there is our friend
Mr. RosEaT WALsH, to whom our country is under so many
obligations for his able and patriotic efforts to make its insti-
tutions rightly understood and justly appreciated in Europe,
by his pen, and still more, if possible, by his vast intercourse
with the distinguished men who visit this city from all parts
of the continent. I know not what he Is doing on this sub-
ject at this moment, but I will be responsible for it that he is
not idle. No man has a heart more thoroughly American,
or a head that better comprehends our Institutions, or a hand
that can more ably defend them."
The New York Commercial Advertiser states a
case in which a citizen of New York (Mr. MOR-
RIS KE'rcH UM) consented to takefrom the Treasury
Department, a year ago, one hundred thousand
dollars of Treasury notes, drawn payable to his
order, and for which he advanced the money.
Those notes, endorsed by him, were negotiated,
and they are now coming in matured for payment.
But (says the Commercial) although the Govern-
ment affords to be dishonored, and stands in the
position of a bankrupt, yet it is not so with the
Government's endorser, Mr. KETCHUM. He feels
that his own honor requires that the notes he has
endorsed should be met: AND HE PAYS THEM.
But where is the honor of the Government in the

The Legislature of NEW JERSEY adjourned on
Saturday, after a session of ten weeks, during
which it matured and passed one hundred and
twenty-one acts, and one joint resolution. The
most important of these acts were those requiring
the suspended banks to resume on or before the
1st of August, and abolishing imprisonment for
debt. (The operation of the latter is not limited
to future debt, but applies to all actions or pro-
cesses for debt whatever.) This act of itself (says
the New York Tribune) would suffice to crown
this Legislature with lasting honor.
TEMPORA MIUTANTUR, &c.-The Richmond
Enquirer is at a loss for language sufficiently
strong to convey an adequate idea of its loathing
and abhorrence of the Land Distribution law;
and yet it was in ecstacies at the proposition of
such a law by Mr. MCLAXE, when he was Secre-
tary of the Treasury under Gen. JACKSON. The
Enquirer, it is true, had some slight doubts about
its constitutionality; but these being removed, this
mode of distribution was all that the Enquirer
could desire ; and this was its language in com-
-nendation of it-(we are indebted to the Lynch-
burg Virginian for the reminiscence:)
What might not Virginia do with an annual
dividend of $800,000, or even half of it ? How
many miles of road might she not complete?
How many schools establish ? How many of her
degraded population might she not transport to
the shores of Africa? Putting aside, however,
all the allurements of self-interest, and viewing
the question alone as between the United States
and the States where the lands are situated, we
are prompted to acquiesce at once in the propo-
sition of the Secretary, and very much for the
reason which he assigns, that all cause of diffi-
culty with the General Government on the sub-
'ject would then be removed." And again, said
the Enquirer, We approve, as far as we are
advised, of Mr. McLANE'S suggestion."
All that the Enquirer then said and approved it
has now unsaid and disapproved; and simply be-
cause the proposition was then broached by one
political party, and is now adopted by another
political party. What is such a man's opinion of
any public measure to be valued at ?-Norfolk Her.
The Legislature of FLORIDA have passed resolutions ex-
presuive of their gratitude for the services which Col. W. J.

has conducted the military operations entrusted to his charge,
and state that he has been instrumental in ridding the territo-
ry of nearly seven hundred of her murderous foee,
PaILADELPHIA, MARCH 16-P. M.
The Philadelphia correspondent of a contempo-
rary journal, who is confessedly a brief sojourner
in this city, attempts in its columns of this morning
to enlighten the public respecting the political
opinions and feelings of this community. By that
authority, the Senate is termed "factious," and its
motives are said to find "no favor or approval
among the People." Will you permit me, as a
Philadelphian, having opportunities of knowing
the sentiments of the people among whom I live,
at least equal to these of a passing stranger, to say
that a factious spirit or improper motives are not
ascribed to the Senate by the mass of this Public;
that, on the contrary, there is at this time peculiar
faith in the wisdom and right intentions of that
elevated body. The credit accorded to the Senate
in your editorial article of Monday is, I am confi-
dent, consonant with the views of the people
generally. I trust that I am not singular in con-
sidering it presumptuous for an individual who passes but a
few hours in a large city, to assert, without qualification,
what are the opinions of the mass of its inhabitants. By
what test those opinions have been so suddenly detected, I
pretend not to say. Certainly not through the press of Phi-
ladelphia; certainly not through any town meeting; certainly
not in the places where citizens ordinarily congregate. I
humbly conceive that the Senate is still considered a co.ordi-
nate branch of the Federal Government, that its constitu-
tional rights are not mere words, or its prescriptive privileges
grown obsolete. The policy of any man may be questionable
who imputes unworthy designs in the exercise of those rights
and privileges, without the clearest evidence of the fact.
Such a policy can effect nothing in this quarter; and to this
assertion any truly impartial witness will testify who has the
means of knowing the political sentiments of the people of
While in the defensive mood, allow me to say a few words
for CHARLES DICKENS and his enthusiastic admirers on this
side of the Atlantic. Mr. DICKENS has been roughly han-
dled in two or three papers, because on about as many occa-
sions he made public allusion to the propriety of passing an
international copy-right law. His reference, under the pe-
culiar circumstances, to the subject has been charged upon
him as indelicate and obtrusive. Had Mr. DICKENS spoken
particularly in his own behalf, there would be ground for this
accusation. But he merely touched generally upon the jus-
tice and policy of according to foreign authors the benefit of
an interest in the reprint of their works here. It is true that
he could not touch upon the question without giving rise to
the reflection that he was a party suffering under the absence
of the regulation which he called for. But be is only one of
a great mass, the representative of future generations of wri-
ters as well as the present. Warmed by the welcome he had
received, he naturally took an occasion, when every one
around him seemed disposed to yield to honest genius its fullest
meed, to mention the wrongs which genius suffered at the
hands of those who professed to worship its creations. If,
however, DICKENS be in any degree culpable for the intro-
duction of this subject, while standing in the position
of an honored guest, in what light do those appear who
think that they have settled in full the claims of a living
author upon them, whose works have delighted, instruct-
ed, and improved, them, by the mere breath of their ap-
plause, or the smile of their favor! It is very fine, in-
deed, to rail at sordid motives, but the impeachment is as
sound against readers as against authors. Why should the
latter have all the labor and the former all the enjoyment
Let any candid man make the case his own-imagine himself
an original, an industrious, a moral, and a popular writer-
would he consider that any people, having all the benefit of
his productions, would discharge their obligations to him by
the voice of their approbation 1 Authors-even Heaven-
inspired poets-must live, must provide for beloved depend.-
ants, and for the days of feeble old age. And to whom shall
they look for the means, if not to the mass, who profit in mind
and heart by their works I Is the republic of letters a name,
or do we recognize the equal right of all within its sacred
bounds, modified only by their gifts and their toils I It strikes
me that these reflections should ward off any censure from
DICKENs on account of the mention which he has made of
the deserts of his profession. And a word here respecting
the conduct of his admirers since his arrival in the United
States. Their manifestations of welcome have been exces-
sive ; but is not the spectacle, in many senses, a beautiful and
cheering one, of a people spontaneously bestowing the tributes
of their grateful admiration on a stranger who, by the natural
and pure inventions of his imagination, had quietly won his
way to their affections, as if he had ever been present at their
firesides 1 The crowning of a poet in Rome, whose lays give
lustre to the literary fame of modern Italy, has been regarded
as a design worthy of a generous and a polished nation. It
grateful enthusiasm was proper in that instance, why not in
this' If bloody heroes from the beginning of the world had
shared the lot of poor old Homer, and the peaceful sons ot
genius been rewarded with the triumphs accorded to conquer-
ors, the world would not have been five thousand years in
attaining to its present degree of enlightenment. On another
account I would defend the reception of CHARLES DICKENS.
It proves that an honest republican feeling is uppermost in
the Union. He has written in a manner to gratify the sensi-
ble mass, who despise all false distinctions in society. He has
made virtue shine brightest in the most obscure ranks of a
community where birth takes legal precedence of all moral
and intellectual merit. He has spoken intelligibly to the
common mind. He has touched the chord of sympathy in
every sound and generous breast. These are his rare achieve-
ments, and that they should inspire society with affectionate
respect for him, is not less to its honor than his own.

'to surrender the negroes of the Creole to the American au-

must await confirmatory intelligence before venturing to re-
'pose implicit faith in the report."
JEFFERSON COLLEGE (LA.) BURNT.
This splendid and costly building, erected by the munifi-
cence of the State of Louisiana for the collegiate education
of its population, was destroyed on the afternoon of March
6th by fire. The building was discovered to be on fire about
two o'clock P. M., and the flames raged with such fury that
in less than two heurs nothing remained but a heap of ruins.
Few articles of value were saved from the conflagration. No
lives were lost.
The College contained a fine Library with 7,000 volumes,
which have cost $8,710; a chemical laboratory worth $1,600;
mathematical instruments, and a large quantity of other fur-
niture. The total cost of the building and furniture, accord-
ing to the last report of the trustees, is $152,398 13. The
building was insured for $62,000.
The mansion house of Gen. TAYLOR, near Newport, (Ky.)

The Nashville Whig of the 8th inst. says: The bluff
bank of the river, immediately to the right of the City Hotel,
gave way about 7 o'clock last night, with a tremendous crash,
carrying down the framed stabling of the hotel, which stood
on the bluff parallel with the river. Two horses only were
killed by the disaster."

FROM A CORRESPONDENT IN ENGLAND.
JANUARY 31, 1842.
Since I last wrote you, Christmas, with all its
old-fashioned English festivities, has paid its an-
nual visit; and, to speak phrenologically, the or-
gan of alimentiveness has been more exercised than
any other faculty or propensity. You have so
faithful a picture of an "English Christmas" in
your countryman WASHINGTON IRVINo's "Sketch-
book," that for me to attempt to delineate it
would at once be a work of supererogation and
presumption. England has changed, and is chang-
ing, -but Christmas doings, so far as I have wit-
nessed them, remain unchanged.
The literary world is giving notice of its forth-
coming novelties, and a fuller spring crop may be
expected than has lately been produced.
In the religious world Puseyism is still the lion
of the day, and it appears probable that all promo-
tions in the Church will henceforward be made
with more or less reference to this question. The
see of Chichester is now vacant by the sudden
death of Dr. SHUTTLEWORTH, and the choice which
the present Conservative Ministry will make of a
successor is looked forward to with a great deal
of anxious curiosity by both parties in the Church.
Whatever the appointment may be, it will make a very pretty
quarrel for the divines. The Times" newspaper presses
upon Sir ROBERT PEEL any course but that of neutrality-it
would, no doubt, prefer the appointment of a Puseyite, but
it would rather compound for an anti-Puseyite than for the
" unprofitable harmlessness" of some good easy man without
energies and without polemics.
With respect to the revenue: Although the nett receipts
for the year ending 5th January, 1842, showed an increase
of f406,995 over that ending 5th January, 1841, yet when
the receipts for the two years are fairly compared, s has been
done by the Examiner, and other leading newspapers, it will
be found that, taking every thing pari passu, and-all accounts
being fairly equalized, there is a deficiency of 1,317,647i
instead of an increase of 406,095 in the revenue of 1841)
compared with that of 1840.
The last census returns for Great Britain show that the
annual increase of population during the last ten years has
been on an average 230,000 a year. This fact, were there
no others pressing upon the attention of the Government,
proclaims most loudly the imperative necessity for something
to be done to provide cheap, or at all events cheaper, bread
for the people. A few days more will develop the intentiensof
Ministers with respect to the corn laws ; and all classes, both
growers and consumers, are waiting impatiently for the de-
There is a sort of ridiculous, although half angry, war of
etiquette carrying on between some of the continental courts,
which may cause disturbance to the present peaceful position
of Europe in some of those countries where the people are
not yet wise enough to tell their kings that war is a game
they must not play at. France and Russia, and France and
Spain, and perhaps France and England, are in this sort of
equivocal position. The debate in the French Chamber of
Peers on the address to the King gave strong evidence of
unquietness in that land of revolutions. The Prince DE LA
MOSEWA (son of Marshal NEY) denounced "the foreign
policy of M. GUIzoT as too humble, and France as degraded
by her deigning to sign any treaty with the .bwers which had
hustled and insulted her." During the discussion upon the
policy of keeping up the military strength of the country,
Marshal SOULT observed that "every officer put on retired
allowance by the reduction would be again in active service
before the end of 1842." Such observations from such a quar-
ter must be regarded as of ominous import.
Prussia seems to be outrunning her continental neighbors
in manufactures, especially in those of wool. In the Prussian
Union the amount of exports of woollen goods was, in 1831
3,316,772 lbs.; in 1841 they had increased to 13,246,777 lbs.;
an increase of nearly 400 per cent. In Prussia proper, the
consumption of wool of their own growth amounts to 24,000,-
000 lbs. per annum, which is considerably more than the
British annual import of wool from the continent of Europe.
The number of looms at work in Prussia in 1825 was 22,139
in 1834 31,759, and in 1837 39,798. The average export
of cotton goods, from 1829 to 1831, was 7,000,000 annually
In 1831 the number of looms employed in the fabrication of
silk goods was 8,956, in 1834 12,044, and in 1837 14,111
In 1834 the export of silk goods was 559,079 lbs.; in 1835
762,004 Ibs., and in 1836 847,927 Ibs. The increase in al
these manufactures, from 1836 to 1840, is said to be still more
The new mode of administering the poor-laws in Englan
appears to have been attended with the most desirable results
Not only are the poor, the really needy, more comfortably pro
vided for, but the education of the children is attended to
and, although the new system contains some restrictions
which, at first sight, appear harsh and unnecessary, yet pov
erty is always an evil, and must be attended with hardships
and it is a question whether the "new poor-law system" has
not diminished those evils as much as any system poessibli
can. The diminution of expense is also very striking, being
a saving of about 30 per cent. Thus, in the year ending 5tl
April, 1834, the total amount of expenditure in England and
Wales for the relief of the poor was 6,317,25E
Of this amount, there was expended by parishes
which have not yet adopted the new system, or
union principle of granting relief, 796,331
as the expenditure of those parishes which have adopted ths
union principle. In the year ending 5th April, 1841, the ex.
penditure in those parishes was 3,850,040, being a saving
of 1,670,844, or about 30 per cent. as 1 have already stated.
This is no doubt a pleasing result; but, on the other hand
the new sensues returns exhibit some very painful statements,
Take the returns for the town of Glasgow, for instance, in
which the spirit shops are said to be nearly a tenth of alt tht
houses. The population, now 282,134, has increased 79,7083
or nearly 40 per cent. jn 10 years, the increase of the whole
kingdom being only 111percent. In the five years ending with
1830, the average of annual deaths was 1 in 38. In the five
years ending with the year 1840, the average was 1 in 30, a
fearful increase, and very much above that of London ; and
here, as in other places, the increase of mortality is most do'
cidedly among children under five years of age. The total
number of persons committed for crimes of all kind, in Glas-
gow, in 1840, was 606; by far the greater part of which num-
ber were youths from 16 to 21 years of age. Of the whole
number (606) about 32 percent, could neither read nor write,
13 per cent. could read and write well, and 2 per cent. had
received a superior education.
*lThat the annual mortality in England and Wales is in.
creasing seems beyond doubt. Mr. PORTER, in his accurate
and standard work, the "Progress of the Nations," states
the rate of mortality as having been in 1780 as I in 40; in
in 1801, as 1 in 48: and in 1830, as 1 in 58; whereas, ac-
cording to recent returns, it was in 1840 as 1 in 45; and it is
stated that the increase of mortality is principally among
children under fiveyears of age. The population of the me-
tropolis has increased since 1831 from 1,594,890 to 1,867,810,
being 17 per cent. The deaths in London for the year end-
ing September, 1841, were as 1 to 39-considerably above the
mortality of the whole kingdom, which was t in 45. When
we consider that the value of life among the upper and mid-
dle classes has decidedly improved, as shown by the altera-
tions in insurance policies, aswell as by general observation,
how fearful must be the increase of disease and mortality
among the poor!
The advocates of Temperance are doing much in Great
Britain; and it is to be hoped that their efforts will be attend.
ed with as complete success as the friends of humanity can
desire. But, strange to say, in spite of all that has been done
in this cause, a decided increase in the consumption of malt
liquors and British spirits has taken place during the last
three years, and as decided a decrease in the consumption of
wine and spirits of foreign manufacture, and of course of
higher price than :the domestic..,-This, at first sight, might
lead to the inference that the lower classes of society had in-
creased in intemperance, whilst the higher and richer ones
had improved in that respect. This is, however, not a just
conclusion. The case is, t am afraid, that the increased pres-
sure of the times has compelled many to abandon the use of
the more expensive drinks, who have not the resolution to re-
frain from the cheaper ones. The following statements, ta-
ken from official papers, will serve to show the relative in-
creases and decreases during 1838, 1839, 1840:
Amount of duty paid on the entire quantity of
foreign wines and spirits, domestic-made spi-
rits and malt, in England in 1838 11,103:318
in Scotland do 2,223,480
in Ireland do 2.022.058
Amount of duty paid in England in 1839
in Scotland do

Amount of duty paid in England in 1840

in Ireland do
15 076 633
In Ireland, during the last two years, no less than 477,000
(being about 32 per cent of the whole) has been stricken off
the Irish spirit.duty alone, by the efforts of Father MATHEW !
A very instructive proof of the increase of revenue, arising
from a reduced rate of import duties, is afforded by the reduc-
tion of the oil duty in 1825. The duty was, previously,
151. 12s. 81d. per ton; it was then reduced to 81. 8s. per ton.
The importation from 1820 to 1824, inclusive, was 740,000
gallons, of which680,000 were entered for home consumption.
But from 1826 to 1830, inclusive, 1,560,000 gallons were im-
ported, of which 1,400,000 were entered for home consump-
tion. Thus the decrease of the duty by nearly one-half led
to an increase of aggregate duty.
There cannot be any very strong hopes entertained that
the present generation should witness the extinction of the
debt which hangs round the neck of poor old England like a
millstone, impedes her movements towards bettering the con-
dition of the people, and renders necessary a weight of taxa-
tion grievous to be borne. The Parliamentary papers show
that the unredeemed capital of the funded debt of Great Bri-
On the 5th of January, 1828 777,476,892
5th of January, 1831 757,586,996
5th of January, 1851 766,371,725
Internal improvements, by means o1 railroads and canals,
are proceeding with surprising rapidity in England. There
are already in Great Britain 180 canals, the aggregate length
of which is 2,682 miles, and which have been executed at an
expense of 30 millions of pounds sterling. The railroads now
in operation in Great Britain have cost 37 millions of pounds.
The aggregate receipts thereon during one week in last Octo-
ber amounted to 97,670, which, after deducting one-half for
expenses, leaves 7 per cent. for a dividend. Whilst railroads
and canals are flourishing, the turnpike roads in most of the
counties where they have been introduced do not pay their
expenses; and this deficiency, which commenced in 1839,
must annually increase.
The papers this morning announce the appointment of Dr.
GILBERT, Principal of Brazen Nose College, Oxford, to the
vacant see of Chichester. This selection is a blow upon the
Puseyites, as it clearly evidences Sir ROBERT PEEL's opposi-
tion to that party. The event is hailed with much satisfac-
tion by the friends of Protestantism and moderation. The
Puseyite candidate for the Professorship of Poetry at Cam-
bridge has also been withdrawn, it having been found, upon
calculating the strength of the party, that it was not equal to
Although I think it very probable that you are now endur-
ing a depression of the thermometer 15 or 20 degrees below

and miserable uncomfortableness of an English winter. **
.FOIRaTHE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE.
Messrs. EDITORS : I know that you habitually abstain,
yourselves, from commending particular speeches or speakers
in Congress, however you may be occasionally impressed
with the striking superiority of a particular one. And in this
you are right. It would be a ticklish undertaking, often
would be thought Invidious, and excite unkind feelings in
those who might not be thus distinguished. Do not, how-
ever, forbid a friend and reader from doing, in one instance,
what you are not at liberty to do; and that is to express, in
the briefest possible manner, his admiration of the transcen-
dant ability, power, and eloquence displayed by Mr. EVANS
in the speech which he concluded yesterday in the Senate
on Mr. CLAY'S resolutions. His argument was, in great
part, in reply to Messrs. CALHOUN and WOODBURY; and cer-
tainly-I say it without the slightest disrespect to those dis-
tinguished Senators-never were two unhappy gentlemen so
dreadfully riddled. If his Congressional career had not
already earned for him that position, this speech would give
Mr. EVANS a place in the very front rank of American states-
men and orators. His name will be inscribed on the same
column with those of AMES, and RuFus KING, and LowNnDrs,
and ADAMS, and CLAY, and WEBSTER.
CORRESPONDENCE OF THE NEW YORK AMERICAN.
Rio JANEIRO, JANUARY, 1842.
We have had a visit from the Emperor. Besides the "Dela-
ware," he visited the French Admiral on board the frigate
Gloire," the senior English captain on board the frigate
',Andromache," and the Portuguese sloop of war "Don
John the 1st." He was received with salutes of 21 guns
from all the ships of war and forts in the harbor. The Del-
aware and French Admiral's frigate were dressed with flags,
and all the ships had their yards manned. The Delaware
was the last ship that he visited, and he remained a much
longer time on board of her than he did on board of any other.
A handsome collation was spread out on board for his little
Majesty and his two sisters, who accompanied him. On leav-
ing the ship after the salute was fired, the Emperor directed
three cheers to be gived from his barge, and his suit called out
"Vive L'America." This was a compliment not extended
to any other of the vessels he visited.
While on board the Delaware, the Emperor asked to see
the crew manage the guns, as in action, and then asked that
the salute whica was to be given him might be fired while he
was on board. This was done, but the usual salute on leav-
ing was given him besides.
We will sail in the morning for Montevideo, and as it is
understood we are to mansouvre the squadron on our way
down, we shall, no doubt, be several days longer than usual
on our passage.

THE LATE COt. ALEXANDER CUMMtNG3.
The subject of this brief memoir entered bthe Army in
1808 as a Second Lieutenant of Light Dragoons. His pa-
rents, who were pious and respectable, resided'In Lycoming
county, in Pennsylvania, from which State he was appoint.
ed. Soon after receiving his appointment he accompanied
his regiment to New Orleans, and remained on the Southern
frontier until a short time before the commencement of the
late war with Great Britain.
In June, 1813, having been promoted to the rank of
Captain, he marched with his command from Pittsburg,
Pennsylvania, to Buffalo, New York, where he was left in com-
mand of his troop of dragoons and of a large body of infantry
recruits, who had accompanied him from Pittsburg. On the
llth of July a body of three hundred of the enemy, under
Col. BISHOP, crossed to Black Rock, about four miles below
Buffalo, and commenced destroying the public stores at that
place. The militia who were stationed there to protectjhe
public property fled at the approach of the enemy, but, on
being reinforced by the regulars under Captain CUM-
MINUS, they rallied and drove the enemy to their boats, with
the lose of their Colonel and nine or ten killed. Captain C.
served with credit through the whole war on the Northern
frontier, and at the reduction of the Army in 1815, although
the dragoons were entirely abolished, he was retained and
transferred to the 4th regiment of infantry. In this regi-
ment he served through the Seminole war in Florida, and in
1818 was promoted to the rank of Major of the 3d infantry.
In 1823 he exchanged into the 7th infantry, then in Arkan-
sas, and served in that regiment until 1828, when he was
promoted to the rank of Lieut. Colonel of the 2d infantry.
The Colonel being on other duty, Lieut. Col. CUMMINuS
took command of the regiment, and retained it until 1839,
when he was promoted to the command of the 4th infantry,
which rank he held at the time of his death.
The loss of this good man and gallant soldier will be deep-
ly felt by the Army, and particularly by those who knew
him and appreciated his many estimable qualities. Brave,
generous, and honorable, in the strictest sense of the word,
he afforded one of those instances, so seldom to be found,
in which the rarest virtues of the human character are unit-
ed without its frailties. Throughout the varied incidents
and dangers of thirty-four years of military service, he never
for a moment deviated from the principles of honor and recti-
tude which he formed in the outset of his life, and which
time but served to strengthen and experience to confirm.
As a soldier, he was firm and precise in the execution of his
duty, yet kind and indulgent to all under his command;
while he would never pass over an open dereliction of duty,
it was one of his chief pleasures to seek out and encourage
merit, however humble the station in which it appeared. But
though, as an officer, he was respected and esteemed by all
who knew him, yet it was in the more quiet sphere of pri-
vate life, which he was by nature peculiarly fitted to adorn,
that the brighter points of his estimable character shone forth
with added lustre. Eminently social in his feelings, and pos-
sessing a heart warm, benevolent, and overflowing with the
kindliest feelings of our nature, Jie invariably commanded
respect and won esteem wherever he was known.
The sudden and unexpected death of this officer will long
be felt not only by the Army, but by all who knew and ap-
preciated his honest and manly character. *
SAVANNAH, MARCH 10, 1842.
IMPORTANT FROM FLORIDA.-We are in possession of the
St. Augustine News and the Herald of the 4th and 5th inst.,
together with interesting intelligence in relation to the war,
to a late date, from our correspondents.
Our letter of March 4th, from Picolata, stated there were
hopes that Major BELKNAP might induce As-syn-ocis with his
band of about one hundred persons, including twenty or
twenty-five warriors, to come in.
By an officer of the Army arrived in town we learn that
this chief has surrendered to Major BELKNAP with his whole
party, consisting of twenty-one warriors and fifty-seven wo-
men and children. This surrender is much more important
The enemy is pressed vigorously in all directions, and yet
so few are his numbers, and so great his ability to elude
search, that it is next to impossible to seize him. We refer
our readers to the following letter from one of our kind cor-
respondents. We regard the advancement of these new set-
tlers into the heart of Florida as the beginning of a new era
in the Florida war. This move is the most important thing
which has occurred in Florida for years past. The time has
now arrived when the remaining Indians are too few, and the
loss of life and treasure too great, to justify offensive measures
on a large scale. Hereafter the efforts of our troops will be
mainly directed to the protection of our settlers. We there-
fore mark a new era from this date in Florida affairs. The
enemy will still be pressed and may be compelled to surren-
der at discretion, but the probability is strong that the dimin-
ished bands now out can continue at large if they please, as
they have done. To collect these small remnants is indeed
a Herculean labor.-Republican.
CORRESPONDENCE OF THE SAVANNAH REPUBLICAN.
FLORIDA, FEBRUARY 28,1842.
Twenty-three settlers, with their baggage and slaves, and
one with his family, have crossed the Withlacoochee on their
way to the Annuktillga Hammock to open a settlement.
More are to follow, some probably to Clear Water harbor,
west of Tampa, where Fort Harrison was located. This is
the first time a settler has advanced south of the now noted
Withiacoochee since the fall of 1835, the commencement of
the war. This is planting a settlement in the ancient and
once formidable stronghold of the Seminole. These men go
prepared to encounter straggling Indians and to occupy the
'country, as the pioneers of this nation have always done, with
the plough in one hand and the rifle in the other. A block.
house is to be built for them by the troops at such a point as
they may select in the Hammock, and that will form a rally-
ing point for their operations. They go with their eyes open,
and know that this enterprise is one which will place them in
the neighborhood of some of the Indians, but they are aware
that if nothing is risked nothing will be gained in such a
This is an important movement. It is a beginning of the
end. They go to a point within striking distance of the once
redoubtable Wahoo and Cove of the Withlacoochee, with
the favorite haunts of the Honosapa near them on the gulf
Such an armed occupation and settlement is a harbinger of
good. It is truly pleasant to see the apparatus of the pioneer
advancing to subject to the use of civilization those fertile
hammocks, blessed with a climate so mild and attractive. The
western coast on or near the gulf possesses a blander climate
than on the eastern side of the Territory. The sea breezes
from the ocean on the Atlantic coast are much ruder and
colder than on the western side, where the east winds from off
the Atlantic are tempered by passage over land, and the gulf
breezes are never as raw as those from the broad ocean.
These regions must, at some future day, become a place of
resort to those afflicted with pulmonary complaints.

PHILADELPRIA, MARCH 17-P. M.
Another of our banks has failed. So the-appre-
hensions expressed in my letter of yesterday were
too well founded, and my anticipations have been
most promptly verified. The announcement ia
the morning papers of the failure of the Penn
Township Bank increased the public panic, and
every person holding a bank note rushed to the
counters of those which were open to have them
redeemed, and to the counters of the brokers to
sell those which were no longer redeemable. The
fiercest run was upon the Mechanics' Bank, the
Manufacturers and Mechanics' Bank, and the Moyamensing
Bank, and before one o'clock the first of these gave up the
struggle, closed its doors, and is now added to the sad list of
out ruined institutions, which now stands as follows;
United States Bank
S 1,000,000 do.
2 50,000 do.
, 1,400,000 do.
This is the amount of bank capital nearly, if not wholly, lost
in this unfortunate city. As for business to-day, there hia
been none. The Brokers' Board adjourned without doing
Sany thing-there being, in fact, no currency in which to
make contracts. Several banks have the credit of having
actually commenced paying specie, and in small sums I know
they did, but I know also that large checks were refused.
The beginning, however, is a great step; and, in serious fur-
therance of the purpose, a meeting was held this evening, at
which the following resolution was adopted:
Resolved, That, on and after to-morrow, the 18th instant,
the banks of the city and county of Philadelphia, assenting
to this resolution, will receive, on deposit and in payment of
debts, specie or the notes of specie-paying banks; also, that
they will pay out at their counters specie or their own notes
exclusively to all persons entitled to demand the same." .
There were eleven banks, including the Germantown, rep-
resented, being all which have not failed, and nine agreed te
the resolution, viz: the Philadelphia, Commercial, North
America, Farmers and Mechanics', Southwark, Northern
Liberties, Western, Kensington, and Germantown. The
other banks represented were Relief Banks," and did not
vote. These two are these a t Moyamensing and the Manufac-
turers and Mechanics', which stated they were making
arrangements to resume speedily.
The effect of this determination by nine of the banks will
be clearly to bring our currency at once to the speie spitand-
ard, and the notes of non-specie paying banks cannot circu-
late if the others can sustain themselves. Some are strong;
some will require great management to weather the storm.
Although some of my well-informed friends are perfectly
sure that the bank failures are over, I must admit that the re-
sult, to say the least, is doubtful, and I shall not be surprised
if our list of broken banks has a very early accession. To
particularize is, perhaps, unjust, else 1 might do so with some

CITY HOTEL, WASHINGTON, D. C.
T HE subscribers have again taken the extensive buildings
recently occupied by the Post Office Department, and for-
merly occupied by them as a Hotel, situated at the corner of Penn-
sylvania avenue and Fourteenth street. The house has been
thoroughly repaired and newly furnished, and no expense has
been spared in furnishing the house, so as to render it elegant
and comfortable. Active and careful waiters have been employed;
the table will be supplied with all the luxuries of the seasons which
the market affords; their wines and liquors they believe will please
the moat fastidious tastes. No pains will be spared to render those
who visit the house comfortable, end their charges having been
reduced, they hope will prove an inducement to all persons visit-
ing tIle city to give them a call.
Its location in the most fashionable part of the city, and its prox-
imity to the President's House and the Public Offices, render it
a desirable stopping place for persons visiting the city either on
business or pleasure. From the construction of the house, it is
peculiarly adapted for the accommodation of families, having
many parlors with bed-rooms adjoining.
When this Hotel was formerly occupied by the present proprie-
tors, it enjoyed as extensive a patronage of both fashionable per-
sons and men of business as any other Hotel in the city, and by
care and attention, and with a desire to please all who may favor
them with a call, they hope again to earn it.
A baggage-wagon, with careful end trusty porters, will convey
the baggage to and from the Hotel, the Railroad, and Steamboats.

B ECKWITH'S ANTI-DYSPEPTIC PILLS.-
These Pills have now been more than eight years before
the public, and their just pretensions to the character claimed for
them closely examined and tested by a great number of persons
too intelligent to be deceived, and too deeply interested in the rs-
suits not to observe with care and judge without favor. Experi-
ence has not weakened these pretensions, but strengthened and
confirmed them by a mass of testimony of such respectable char-
acter as has never sustained any article in this form in any country.
The original design was to relieve Dyspepsia, and those functional
derangements upon which it commonly depends. They were,
however, found, by preserving the stomach end bowels in a heal.
thy state of action, to tend greatly to ward off those, bili-
ous attacks" to which many are liable, but not as an Anti-Bilious
Pill, in 'the common signification of the term. Those, therefore,
who expected in them an active purgative, though to many they
are such, may have been disappointed; yet few instances of fail-
ure have been ascertained among those who have faithfully em-
ployed the article according to the design, where relief might rea-
sonably have been expected. In addition to the habitual dyspeptic,
those who, from custom or from necessity, as in traveling or busi-
ness, take their meals hastily, find in the use of ihese pills great
protection or relief from consequent occasional attacks of indiges-
tion ; and, indeed, all whose habits or pursuits are sedentary may
take them with safety and benefit.
The chief objection urged against them is, that they encourage
indulgence in the pleasures of the table by the immunity they
give from the painful effects of excess. That the Public may feel
assured that no imposition is attempted to be practised upon therh,
the Proprietor has obtained permission to refer to the following
gentlemen, among many others, who, from personal experience
of the efficacy of these Pills, are willing to recommend them to
their friends, viz

L. S. Ives, D. D., Bishop of North Carolina; Hon.James Iredell,

A NATURAL REMEDY, 'suited to our constitutionst
and competent to the cure of every curable disease, will be
found in the INDIAN VEGETABLE PILLS of the North Ame-
aican College of Health.
These extraordinary Pills are composed of plants whica grow
spontaneously on our own soil; and are therefore better adapted
to our constitutions than medicines concocted from foreign drugs,
however well they may be compounded; and as the Indian Vege-
table Pills are founded upon the principle that the human body ia
in truth subject to butane disease, viz. corrupt humors, and that
said medicine cures this disease on natural principles-by clean-
sing and purifying the body-it will be manifest, that if tha con-
stitution be riot entirely exhausted, a perseverance in their use,
according to directions, ia absolutely certain to drive disease of
every name from the body.
When we wish to restore a swamp or morass to fertility, we
drain it ofthe superabundant waters; in like manner, if we wish to
restore the body to health, we must cleanse it of impurity.
The Indian Vegetable Pills will be found one of the best, if not
the very test medicine in the world for carrying out this grand
purifying principle, because they expel from the body all morbid
and corrupt humors, the cause of disease, in an easy and natural
manner; and while they every day give ease and pleasure, dis-
ease of every name is rapidly driven from the body.
The above named Indian Vegetable Pills have been three years
before the American Public ; and we can now say, without fear of
contradiction, that of all the various medicines which have here-
tofore been popular, not one has given such universal satisfaction
or obtained such a permanent hold upon the affections of the peo-
ple. Not only do all who use it, invariable experience relief, and
recommend it in the strongest terms, but it has effected some of
the most astonishing cures ever performed by medicine.
Hitherto, very few of the numerous testimonials which have
been received in favor of this extraordinary medicine have been
published, as the medicine obtained its present great celebrity
more by its own intrinsic goodness than from extensive advertising.
It has been deemed proper, however, to offer the following opinions
of the public press, together with a few extracts trom letters of
agents, merely to show that the fame of the Indian Vegetable Pills
is not confided to any one section,'but is rapidly extending itself
to every part of the Union.
From the Philadelphia Saturday Evening Post.
TH ,INDIAN VEETABLE PsLLS.-Wright's Indian Vegetable
Pills are attaining great celebrity in New England as well as other
parts of the United States. Theattempt of persons to defraud the
public by the sale of spurious articles meets with general repro-
bation. Mr. Wright is an indefatigable business man, and shows
an array of cures by the medicine which warrant confidence in
the virtues of his Indian Vegetable Pills.
From the Philadelphia Spirit ofthe Times.
THEI [NDIA VEgOETABLE PILLS.-People are pretty well satis-
fied by this time that calomel and the other thousand and one
mineral preparations of the shops, are better adapted, as a general
rule, to kill rather than cure the patient; as a matter of course,
vegetable medicines are therefore in great request. There are
very many humbugs, however, among the latter, and we would
advise all those who have the least regard for their health to try
the Indian Vegetable Pills of the North American College of
Health, sold at 169 Race street, Philadelphia, as they are the pre-
paration of one intimately acquainted with the healing art.
From the Boston Daily Times.
INDIAN VEOGETABLE PiB.-Ofall the publicly advertised medi-
cines of the day, we know of none that we can more safely recom-
mend for the "ills that flesh is heir to" than the Pills that are sold
at the depot of the North American College of Health, No. 198
Tremont street, Boston. Several instances we know of where
they are used in families with the highest satisfaction; and no
longerago than yesterday weheard an eminent physician ofthe city
recommend them in high terms. There used to be in the commu-
nity a great repugnance to the use of quack medicines, as they are
all indiscriminately termed, but it was mainly owing to the regu-
lar M. D.'s constantly denouncing them. They me, however, be-
coming more liberal in this respect, and the consequence is that
good vegetable medicines are now more extensively used than
Extract of a letter from Peter Christ, Uniontown, Carroll
county, Maryland, November.17, 1838.
Dear Sir;: About two months ago I had business in Baltimore,
and called at your office and bought ait few boxes of the Indian Ve-
getable Pills ; and upon trying them f found them to be far supe-
rior to Pills, or any other medicine I had ever used. I
had been subject to a cough for five years past, and during the
time have taken a variety of medicines without any relief until I
got the Indian Vegetable Pills, and by taking four doses the cough
began to leave me; and I now enjoy better health than 1 have
done for five years past. After I found them to be a valuable me-
dicine, I immediately sent to Baltimore for a large supply. I have
received so much benefit in using the Indian Vegetable Pills that
I cannot help but recommend them to every invalid I see, and
think so well of the medicine that I have sent two dozen boxes to
my invalid friends in the State of Indiana.

Mr. Win. Wright: Dear Sir: You will please to forward as
soon as possible some of your Indian Vegetable Pills, as we are
al nost out of the article, and they appear to be getting into gene-
ral use here. We have a great call for the medicine at present,
and those that have used them speak vety highly of them. One
gentleman attributes his being cured of dropsy to the use of them ;
and another has been cured of dyspepsia solely by the use of your
Indian Vegetable Pills, and is willing you should publish his case
if you think proper. G. C. BLACK,
No. 1 Chatham Square, New York.
Extract of a letter from Mr A. Larrimore, Indiana.
Dr. Wright: Dear Sir: Having some knowledge of your most
excellent compound, the Indian Vegetable Pills, and not knowing
how to get a fresh supply, my stock being nearly exhausted, and
wishing always to have them in my family, I take this method
to open a correspondence with you. The pills alluded to are well
thought of here and very much wanted. I wish to make arrange-
ments with you for a constant supply, as I think a very great quan-
tity could be sold in this section of the country.
Extract of a letter from Samuel Griffith, Stewarttosn, York
Mr. W. Wright: Dear Sir: I am selling the Indian Vegetable
Pills by the dollar's worth, and at that rate the stock of Pills, left
by your travelling agent, will soon be out.
I aun pleased to find they are such ready sale. Those who have
used them speak in the highest terms af them. Many have al-
ready found great relief from their use, and when the eures are
finally effected, I shall do you the justice to inform you of the
Extract of a letter from Washington city.
Mr. Winm. Wright: Dear Sir : You will have the kindness to
forward me, as soon as possible, two or three gross of the Indian
Vegetable Pills. The sales have for the last two months increased
rapidly; those who buy generally remarking "that they are the
best pills they have ever used," andt my opinion is that they will
in a short time supersede all others in this city.
Extract of a letter from Lycoming county, Pa.
Mr. Win. Wright: Dear Sir: On being appointed agents for
the sale of the Indian Vegetable Pills in this place, we only took
one gross on trial; but it would have been better if we had taken
half dozen gross : for, on a fair trial, they have far exceeded our
most sanguine expectations. In fact so much sB that we have been
obliged to send to Mr. Zimmerman, at Lancaster, more than a
hundred miles from here, for ten dozen; but these will last but a
very short time the way we are selling them since they have been
fairly tested. In the first place, I gave some to our physicians to
make trial of, since which they have purchased a numberof boxes
and highly approve of them. A few days ago, there was a lady
sent 30 miles to get a box of the pills ; she at the time was very
low and unable to turn herself in bed ; but in two days, as my in-
formant says, she was able to help herself.
We could mention many other cases, but deem it unnecessary
at this time; but would merely say, that as the season is fast ap-
proaching when there will be a great demand for the Indian Vege-
table Pills, if we could only get a supply of tire medicine, we could
establish other agents, which would be of immense advantage,
not only t-rthe North American College of Health, but to the pub-
lic generally. Please let us know your views on the subject, and
any directions relative to the same will be promptly attended to byj
Very respectfully, your friends,
