k `%URNITURE WAREHOUSE, corner of B and
Seventh street.-LEONARD 0. COOK, grateful for
the patronage of ils friends'and public prior to the calamity which
totally befell him at his old establishment on D street, between
8th and 9th, respectfully gives notice that he has taken the large
Brick Warehouse at the corner of B and Seventh streets, near
the canal bridge, where he will be pleased ,o wait upon his old
Customers and others in want of articles in his line of business.
Since the fire, which deprived me of all my tools and the great-
er part of my stock, it has occasioned a temporary suspension of
business but at this time I am fally prepared to execute any or-
de a which I may be favored with, and at the shortest notice. I
shall always keep a general stock of ready-made furniture on
hand, and of the very best kind, the latest fashions, and of the
very best workmanship, and I will warrant all such work as I
have made. Those in want of furniture are invited to call and
examine before purchasing elsewhere, as I feel confident I can
supply them cheaper than any other establishment in the District;
and 1 hope by strict attention to business to merit a share of pub-
I have also two Furnitpre Oars for hire. Those in want can
have their furniture hauled with care, as I have two careful dri-
vers; and, in case of injairy or accidents, can have their furni-
ture put in complete order clear of extra changes.

M cCULLOCH'S UNIVERSAL GAZETTEER,
- &ec.-A Dictionary, geographical, statistical, and histori-
cal of the various countries, places, and principal natural objects
in the world ; illustrated with seven extensive and complete maps
on steel, by J. R. McCulloch, Esq. in 2 volumes 8vo. In which
the articles relating to the United States will be re-written and
greatly multiplied and extended and adapted to the present con-
dition of the country and to the wants of its citizens. By Daniel
Haskel, A. M. late President of the University of Vermont. In
18 or 20 numbers at 25 cents each.
Such a work is greatly needed in the United States at the pre-
sent time. The existing Gazetteers are generally old and to a
degree antiquated. Geography is a science which in its own na
ture, beyond most others, is progressive. Changes are constant-
ly taking place in the condition of the world and of its inhabitants;
the various parts of the earth are continually more extensively ex-
plored ; asd to exhibit its changes and the new and valuable in-
formation which is perpetually developed requires new works on
The English language has never been adorned by a more valu-
able work of this kind than the new and splendid work of McCul-
loch. The fullness with which each article is written, the clear-
ness of the arrangements throughout, and the vast surface travers-
ed under each head, and in every department of inquiry essential
to the undertaking, contribute to the production of the most lumi-
nous body of information concerning geography, statistics, and
history, and all matters necessary to their elucidation, that has
ever been brought together in a shape so perspicuous and acces-
sible. Such a publication, which can be referred toon the instant
for any subject embraced in its pages, is indispensable to all li-
braries, and must completely supersede every previous attempt
to popularize and reduce within convenient limits these various
classes of information.
The first number of the above isj ust issued from the press and
may be examined at the bookstore of F. TAYLOR. -
The work can travel through the mails at tse rate of magazine
postage only. Orders through the mails (post paid) promptly at-
tended to. june 23

IMPROVEMENT in whatever regards the happiness and
welfare of our race is constantly on thire march to perfection,
and with each succeeding day some new problem is solved or
some profound secretrevealed, having an importantand direct bear-
ing over man's highest destinies. If we tike a retrospective view
over the past twenty years, how is thie mind struck with wouderl
What rapid strides has scien e made in every departmentof civil-
ized life, particularly in that which relates to thire knowledge of tire
bumion system in health and disease! How valuable and indis-
pensable are the curative means recently discovered through the
agency of chemistry How does the imagination kindle and our
admiration glow at the ingenuity, the near approach to the stand-
ard of perfection of the present time I Through the elaborate
investigations of Physiology, or the science of life, and the pa-
thiology of prevalent diseases, much valuable practical knowledge
has ben gained. In consequence of becoming acquainted with
the organization, the elements of the various tissues and struc-
tures of the system, remedies have been sought after and discov-
ered exactly adapted t) combine with, neutralize, and expel mor-
bific niatter, the cause of disease u, and substitute healthy action in
its place. The beautiful simplicity of this mode of treatment is
not only suggested by the pathology of diseases, not only grateful
to the sufferer, but perfectly in consonance with the operations of
nature, and satisfactory to the views and reasoning of every in
telligent reflecting mind It is thus that Sands's Sarsaparilla, a
scientific combination of essential principles of the most valuable
vegetable substances, operates upon the system. The Sarsapa-
rilla is combined with the most effectual aids, the most salutary
productions, the most potent simples of the vegetable kingdom;
and its unprecedented success in the restoration to health of
those who had long pined under the most distressing chronic
Luoaldies, ha-. given itan exalted character, furnishing as it does
a, lence .." i ts own intrinsic value, and recommending it to the
afflicted iu terms the afflicted only can know. It has long been
a most important desideratuom in the practice of medicine to obtain
a remedy similar to this-one that would act on the liver, sto-
mach, and bowels with all the precision and potency of mineral
preparations, yet without asny of tfeir deleterious effects upon the
vital powers of the system.
The attention of the reader is respectfully called to the follow-
ing certificates. However great achievements have heretofore
been made by the use of this invaluable medicine, yet daily ex-
perience shows results still more remarkable. The proprietors here
avail themselves of the opportunity of saying it is a source of
constant satisfaction that they are made the means of relieving
such an amount'of suffering.
NEwARK, N J. DECEMBER 13, 1842.
Messrs. Sands: Gentlemen : Words cannot expressed the
gratitude I feel for your treatment to me, a stranger, suffering
under one of the mout loathsome diseases that nature is capable of
bearing. The disease with which I was afflicted commenced with
inflammation of the eyes, in the year 1836, which caused almost
total blindness. For this I was treated and finally, relieved, but
the remedies were such as to cause the developmentof a scrofu-
lous affection on my left arm near the elbow.
The pain extended from the shoulder to Ahe end of my fingers,
and for two years my sufferings were beyond description. I tried
various remedies and consulted different physicians in New York.
and amongst them the late Doctor Bishe, who told me the disease
of the arm was caused by the large quantity of mercury taken to
cure the inflammation of my eyes.
My sufferings continued, the arm enlarged, tumors formed In
different places, and in a few mouths discharged, making ten
running ulcers at one time; some above and some below the
elbow, and the discharge was so offensive that no person could
bear to be in the room where I was. I then applied to another
distinguished physician, who told me amputation of the arm was
the only thing that could save my life, as it was impossible to
cure so dreadful a disease ; but, as 1 was unwilling to consent to
it, he recommended me to use Swaim's Panacea freely, which I
did without deriving but little benefit. For three years I was
unable to raise my hand to my head or comb my hair; and the
scrofula now made its appearance on my head, destroying the
bone in different places, causing extensive ulcerations, and I fear-
ed it might reach and destroy the brain; the head swelled very
much, accompanied with violent pain : numerous external reme-
dies were recommended, but they did no good. About a year
since I was taken severely ill with a swelling of the body from
head to foot, so that I was entirely helpless. The doctor advised
me to go to the hospital, for he did not understand my case. For
the last few months 1 had been afflicted with a severe pain in
both sides, at times so bard I could scarcely get my breath. A
hacking cough constantly annoyed me, and this, combined with
other maladies, rendered ire truly miserable. Such, gentlemen,
had been my situation for seven years of my life, when I com-
menced the use ef your Sarsaparilla ; but as my cas was con-
sidered hopeless, and the near prospect of a speedy dissolution
seemed inevitable, 1 felt but little encouragement to persevere.
The persuasion of friends induced me to try your medicine,
which in a few days produced a great change in my system gen-
erally by causing an appetite, relieving the pains, and giving me
strength. As success inspires confidence, I was encouraged to
persevere. My pains grew easier, my strength returned, food
relished, the ulders healed, new flesh formed, and I once more
felt'within me that I might get well. I have now used the Sar-
saparilla about two months and am like a different being. The
arm that was to be amputated has entirely healed-a thing that
seemed impossible. I can scarcely believe the evidence of my
own eyes, but such is the fact; and it is now as useful as at any
period of my life, and my general health is better than it has
been for years past.
Health I what magic in the word, how many thousands have
sought it .in foreign lands and sunny climes, and have sought in
vain! Yet it came to me when I haid given up to die; and as I
feel the pulsations of health coursing through my veins, my whole
heart and soul go forth in fervent gratitude to the Author of all
our sure mercies that he has been graciously pleased to bless the
means made use of. Truly have you proved yourself the good
Samaritan to the afflicted; for next to my Creator my life is in-
debted to you, or rather the use of your invaluable Sarsaparilla.
The value of such a medicine is countless beyond price-money
cannot pay for it. I have been raised from death, I may say, for
my friends and myself thought it imp ssible I could recover.
And now, gentlemen, suffer me to add another proof, certified,
too, by my friends and guardians, as a just acknowledgment of
the virtues of your health-restoring Sarsaparilla. That the af
flicted may also use it, and enjoy the benefits it alone can confer,
is the heartfelt, fervent wish of their and your friend,
I know Martha Conlin, and believe what she states in this do-
cument to be perfectly true. JOHN POWER,

WONDERFUL EFFECTS OP SANDS'S SARSAPARILLA IN
Read the following from Mrs. William Phillips, who has long
resided at the Falls. The facts are well known to all the old re-
sidents in that part of the city :
Messrs A. B. Sands & Co.: Sirs : Most gratefully do I em-
brace this opportunity for stating to you the great relief I obtained
from the use of your Sarsaparilla. I shall also be happy, through
you, to publish to all who are afflicted, as I lately was, the account
of my unexpected, and even for a long while despaired of, cure.
Mine is a painful story; and trying aid sickening as is the narra-
tive of it, for the sake of many who may be so surely relieved, 1
will briefly yet accurately state it.
Nineteen years ago last April a fit of sickness left me with an
erysipelas eruption. Dropsical collections immediately took place
over the entire surface of my body, causing such an enlargement
that it was necesr ry to aud a half yard to the size of my dresses
around the waist. Next followed upon my limbs ulcers, painful
beyond description. For years, both in summer and winter, the
only mitigation of my suffering was found in pouring upon those
parts cold water. Prom my limbs the pain extended over my
whole body. There was literally for me no rest by day or by
night. Upon lying down these pains would shoot through my sys-
tem and compel me to arise, and for hours together walk the
house, so that 1 was almost entirely deprived of sleep. During
this time the erysipelas continued active and the ulcers enlarged,
and so deeply have these eaten, that for two and a half years they
have been subject tobleeding. During these sanost twenty years
1 have consulted many physicians. These have called my dis-
ease-as it was attended with an obstinate cough, and a steady
and active pain in my side-a dropsical consumption; and though
they have been skilful practitioners, they were not able to afford
my case only partial relief. I had many other difficulties, too
complicated to describe. I have also used many of the medicines
that have been recommended as infallible cures for this disease,
yet these all failed, and I was most emphatically growing worse.
In this critical condition, given up by friends, and expecting for
myself relief only in death, I was, hy the timely ioterposition of
a kind Providence, furnished with your to me invaluable Sarsa-
parilla. A single bottle gave me an assurance of health, which
for twenty years I had not once felt. Upon taking the second
bottle my enlargement diminished, and in twelve days from the
8th of October, when I commenced taking your Sarsaparilla, I
was able to enioy sleep undressed by night, as refreshing as any
lever enjoyed when in perfect health. Besides, I was in this
short time relieved from all those excruciating and unailevisted
pains that had afflicted my days, as well as robbed me of my
nights' repose. The ulcers upon my limbs are healed, the ery-
sipelas cured, and my size reduced nearly to my former measure.
Thus much do I feel it a privilege to testify to the efficacy of
your health-restoring Sarsaparilla. A thousand thanks, sirs, from
one whose comfort and whose hope of future health are due, un-
der God, to your instrumentality. And may the same Providence
that directed me to your aid make you the happy and honored in-
struments of blessing others as diseased end despairing as your
imuch relievedt and very grateful friend.

Jeof 91 peoplel who doenot raise his mind to these truths, cable come, A bill flled with details would have but 4
faint prospect of passing. The enemies to any possible sys-
tem in detail, and those who are opposed in principle, would
unite and defeat it. Though he was unwilling to incorporate
details in the bill, yet be was not adverse to presenting his
views on that point. The first great object was to perfect
the communication from Maine to Louisiana. This might
be fairly considered as the principal artery of the whole sys-
tem. The next was the connexion of the lakes with the
Hudson river. In a political, commercial, and military point
of view, few objects could be more important. The next
object of chief importance was to connect all the great com-
mercial points on the Atlantic, Philadelphia, Baltimore,
Washington, Richmond, Charleston, and Savannah, with the
Western States; and, finally, to perfect the intercourse be-
tween the West and New Orleans. These seemed to him
to be the great objects. There were others no doubt of great
importance which would receive the aid of Government. The
fund proposed to be set apart in this bill was about $650,000 a
year, which was doubles too small to effect such great ob-
jects of itself; but it would be a good beginning, and he bad
no doubt when it was once begun the great work will be fin-
ished. If the bill succeeds, at the next session the details can
be arranged and the system commenced. He could not con.
sider those who objected merely to the mode to be very hearty
in favor of the system. Every member must know that in
all great measures it is necessary to concede something, as
it is impossible to make all think alike in the minutia of the
measure who are agreed in principle. A deep conviction of
the importance of the thing itself is almost sure to be accom-
panied with a liberal spirit of concession. The committee
who introduced this bill gave it the shape in their opinion the
most proper in itself and the most likely to succeed. If it
cannot pass in its present form and under the present circum-
stances, it is certainly very doubtful whether it ever will.
He felt a deep solicitude in relation to it. He was anxious
that this Congress should have the reputation of it, and he
was the more so on account of the feelings which had been
created against it. Nobody of men it his opinion ever better
merited than this Congress the confidence of the country.
For wisdom, firmness, and industry, it had never been ex-
celled. To its acts he appealed for the truth of his assertions.
The country already began to experience the benefit of its
foresight and firmness. The diseased state of its currency,
which many thought incurable, and most thought could not
be healed in so short a time, begins to exhibit symptoms of
speedy health. Uninfluenced by any other considerations
than love of country and duty, said he, let us add this to the
many useful measures already adopted. The money cannot
be appropriated to a more exalted use. Every portion of the
community, the farmer, mechanic, and merchant, will feel its
good effects; and, what is of the greatest importance, the
strength of the community will be augmented, and its political
prosperity rendered more secure.
What does the reader think now of the intelli-
gence an3 accuracy of information of the South
FOREIGN SCIENTIFIC PROCEEDINGS.
From the materials furnished by the care of our
skilful Paris correspondent we reduce the following
synopsis of the late investigations in the French
Academy of Science :
SITTINO op MAY 15.-The proceedings in this sitting were
less interesting than usual ; they were chiefly reports on works
of a purely scientific character, and of which a very imperfect
notion, indeed, could be formed from any analysis within rea-
sonable limits. One of the firs-it reports was that of M. Arago
on a very long paper by M. Leverrier respecting the orbit of
Mercury and its perturbations. M. Leverrier appears to have
pursued his observations with great patience, and with all the
advantages presented by the best astronomical instruments;
but the results do not furnish us with any new information
of importance. A paper was received from M. Bareswill
announcing the discovery of a new oxygenated acid of chro-
ma. By pouring into water a solution of chron.id acid, M.
Bareswill succeeded in obtaining perchromic acid, the compo-
sition of which is represented by seven equivalents of oxygen
for two of chroma. He isolated the new acid by dissolving it
in ether. A paper was read on the progressive increase of
the results obtained from the operations of the auriferous sands
of Siberia. It is shown in the following table:
Ponds of gold. Pouda of gold. Ponids of gold.
1830 5 1835 93 1839 183
1831 10 1836 105 1840 255
1832 21 1837 132 1841 358
1833 36 1838 163 1842 631
and, according to all probability, the result of 1843 will show
a great increase on that of 1842. Under the nameof Siberia
are comprised all the countries situated beyond the Oural
Mountains, with the exception of the districts at the foot
of the chain of mountains in the Governments of Perm
and Oremburg. The workmen employed in the extrac
tion of the gold are almost exclusively convicts, of whom
there were not less than eleven thousand in Eastern Sibe-
ria in 1842. They are allowed the proceeds of one day
in the week for themselves, but they are not permitted to dis-
pose of the gold as they please. They are bound, on the
contrary, to sell it to the persons whohold the privilege of the
extraction, and are consequently paid less than its value. The
amount taken by the Government from the proceeds of the
general operations varies from 20 to 25 per cent., with an ad-
dition of four roubles per pond of gold for the expense of
superintendence and coining. The pond of gold is about
In a late communication to the Academy the re-
cent earthquakes in the West Indies were adverted

july 19-tf Near Bladensburg. Sitting of June 5 -The first subject before the Academy
w U[RAL TALES FOR THE YOUNP1, justpublish.- was a paper by M. de Mirbel on the monocotyledonous trees
JLl eudrforgealtMorrloa'sBbookstort,' luly I gf Algelia. M Arago tlin called theattention of the Aca-
demy to the action of lightning conductors. Hitherto it has
been the general opinion that these rods are a preservative
against the electric -laid for a horizontal distance of three
times their own height. During the thunderstorm on the lst
instant, however, a building in the Rue St. Jaques, near the
Val-de-Grace, where there is a lightning conductor, was In-
jured by the electric fluid. This building is quite within the
distance which has usually been supposed to be free from
danger. The Academy appointed a commission to inquire
into this matter.-A letter was received from Prince Demi-
doff on the rapid extension of the extraction of gold from the
auriferous sands of the Russian empire. Those of Siberia
alone, he states, yielded in 1842 more than10,000 kilogrammes
of gold, representing a value of fifteen millions of francs.
A mass of gold, weighing thirty-five kilogrammes, and worth
120 00Ofr. was found in Siberia last year.-The following
new process for the preservation of meats promises very im.
portant results: A memoir was received from M. Dussourde
on the preservation of meats by a ferruginous sirup-a sirup
which undergoes no deterioration by keeping. Meat which
has been steeped in this sirup dries with only a slight dimi
nation of volume, and is not affected by the most active agents
of putrefaction. When required for use the meat is put into
cold water, and it soon assumes its original size. Its color and
odor are then like those of fresh meat, of which it has all the
properties. The sirup is made by boiling iron in an impal-
pable powder with common sirup until the latter becomes suffi-.
ciently impregnated with the iron. A far more curious and
important investigation was presented in the next communi-
cation. A long paper was received from Dr. Magnien, on
the functions of the thyroid glands in mammiferous animals
and in the human species. These organs are in both classes,
says the author, vasculary ganglions of an arterial character,
which have the property, by reason of their spongeosity, of
swelling and entering into turgescence, under the influence of
a momentary or continuous acceleration of the course of the
arterial blood; and as these ganglions are provided with a
muscular apparatus, they can, in their increased volume, com-
press the external carotids and diminish the quantity of blood
which flows by these channels. Dr. Magnien, however, goes
further. He concludes that thpse organs are not merely the
compressors of the carotid canals, but also compensators and
regulators of the quantity ar.d rate of flowing of the arterial
blood in the currents which constitute what he calls the aorto-
encephalo-rachidian circulation. The doctor states, that in
proportion as the thyroid organs are developed and closely
united with the external carotids, so are the interior lobes of
the brain less voluminous ani less active ; and, consequently,
the intelligence of the individual is comparatively limited.
These organs perform a special part, he says, in all muscular
efforts, such as running, jumping, parturition,&c. They have
also a particular action on sleep, which is the negative state of
vascular effort. One of the most curious parts of Dr. M.'s pa-
ptr, which will probably excite some surprise among medical
readers, is the classification of the human species, which he
has founded on his comparative study of these organs. He
states, as the result of several post mortem examinations,
that in all men of the Austral hemisphere the thyroid organs
are very voluminous and closely applied to the external ca
rotids, which are followed by internal carotids of very pro-
nounced curves; and that, on the contrary, in all the natives
of the northern hemisphere, as far as 60 deg. latitude north,
the organs are less voluminous and less intimately connected
with the external carotids, which in this case are followed by
internal carotids, almost always rectilinear. He concludes
his paper by establishing seven classes or races of human be-
ings, viz equatorial, meano boreal, meso austral, pure boreal,
pure austral, hyper korean, and hyper-austral.-A communi-
cation was received from MM. Gruby and Delafond, giving
an account of their researches as to the anatomy and func-
tions of the intestino-vermicular motion upon the absorption,
preparation, and composition of the chyle of animals Ac-
cording to the authors, the chyle, which is the first elimination
of digestion, is formed in the stomach and the intestinal canaI;
but Ihe operation varies in its mode according to the nature
of the alimentary substance received into the stomach. The
chyle which is taken up by the chyleferous vessels of the
digestive tube contains simply very small molecules, which
are held in suspension in a liquid of a nature spontaneously
,c)agulable. On ffie application of microscopic reactives, it
appears that the very small molecules of the chyle, purified
by the chyligenous process, are composed of fat, contained in
an albumirnous pellicule, and that this transparent liquid is
formed ot fibrine and albumen dissolved in water, containing
different salts in solution.-A paper was received from Dr.
Peyreyra, one of the physicians of the hospital at Bordeaux,
announcing that he had cured a great number of phthisical
patients by the use ot the oil obtained from the liver of the
codfish, combined with tonical remedies. It would give us
great pleasure to be able to confirm this announcement ofM.
Peyreyra, which is at total variance with the paper lately
read to the Academy by a most distinguished physician in
Paris, but we fear that he has deluded himself into a belief
of success. Sydenham remarked that, taking the whole
diseases which attack the human race, two thirds of them
are inflammation, and that one-third of the remaining part
are consumption. Most erroneous ideas prevail on this dis-
ease with the public, who consider it to be a great approbrium
medicine that no cure has ever been found out for this dire-
tal malady. This is, however, unjust. Consumption arises
in a great variety of ways. All of them, however, have a
tendency to induce what is called a phthisical diathesis of the
blood, or, in other words, a consumptive circulation. Outol
the circulating fluids, then, there come infinitesimal particles,
which manifest themselves usually in the lungs after some
slight, very slight, catarrhal cold. These particles at the
beginning are not larger than millet seeds, but the crop of
them contiguous to one another is very numerous. The cold
usually ceases, but the structure is formed, and from these
pin-point deposits there is a regular set of phases which the
disease passes through, almost as uniform as the changes we
see in health from childhood up to old age. One of these
military particles either swells or unites with two or three of
its neighbors, and becomes as large as a pin-head. This again
either enlarges or joins with two or three others, and small
tumors arise about the size of a pea. These again swell or
unite into others, and attain to the size of a bean or a hazle-
nut. During the whole of this process, which may be weeks
or months, the mischief has been advancing with little incon-
venience to the patient, and unheeded by the family or sur-
rounding friends. The disease is then established. No
means have ever bsen found out in medicine to cause the ab-
sorption of these depouies. The morbid structure seems to
-have an advancing life of its own. In this stage a slight dif-
ficulty of breathing begins to be noticed in mounting acclivi-
'ies, pain in the side follows, and cough becomes apparent.
General bad health ensues, seldom, however, affecting the
mind. Alter some two or three weeks, the interior of the
hazle-nut sized tumors softens down into purulent matter.
'hbe cough continues. The matter is forced through thesides
of the hszle-nut covering into the bronchms, and continues
for weeks more to be evacuated by the windpipe. The pa-
tient gets worse and worse. There is superadded to the other
symptoms diarrbcera and violent perspirations. The whole
frame wastes away, and the patient dies almost a skeleton. It
is only when the matter is nearly, evacuated from the hazle-
nut sized tubercles, asthey are termed, that a cure has eve, neen
observed, and this does not occur once in ten thousand times.
In this rare occurrence the process that takes place is as fol-
lows. The inner part of the shell of the evacuated tubercles
becomes lined into cartilage exactly like the bronchial tubes,
and then the number of tubercles must have been small, other-
wise extensive disorganization would impede the breathing,
and seriously derange the pulmonary functions.
The following, in the sitting of 12th June, are
also quite interesting:
A communication was made by Messrs. Pelouze and Gelis
on the means of obtaining the acid called butyric acid in
abundance, by the simple transformation of common sugar
in an alcoholic fermentation by contact with some animal
substance. A saccharine solution, to which are added a
small quantity of caseum and some powdered chalk, is left
fir some weeks in a temperature of from 25 to 30 centigrade.
The caseum acting as a ferment, the sugar is decomposed,
and gives out hydrogen and carbonic acid. Water and buty-
ric acid are formed, which in combustion with black chalk
give a liquor containing butyrate of lime. This salt, decom
posed by chlorhydric acid, abandons the fatty substance.
Thus, the remarkable result of the saporification of butter,
which, since its discovery in 1814 by M. Chevreul, has been
of tare and difficult occurrence, may now be had with little
difficultyrand will always be at hand for any experiments
with a view to the better appreciation of the operations of
animal chemistry. Messrs. Pelouze and Gelis have convinc-
ed themselves that the acid obtained by the fermentation of
sugar in the mode stated is identical with that produced from
butter. The phenomena presented by the butyric acid in
combination with alcohol are very curious. The etherifica-
tion of alcohol by butyric acid is slow and difficult; but
when to the, two substances there is added a certain quantity
ol sulphuric acid, the formation of butyric ether is almost
instantaneous Another remarkable fact is, that the pre-
sence of water, even in considerable quantity, does not im-
pede the etherification. After this communication had been
made, M. Payen observed that the transformation of sugar
into grease or fat had not been regarded as impossible by the
chemists, who had described it as rare and difficult. The
honorable academician observed, moreover, that butyric acid
exists only in small proportions in butter, and could not of
itself suffice to create that substance. This may be perfectly
true, but the fact demonstrated by Messrs Pelouze and Gelis
is not the less positive; for they have shown that a result
which was before considered as exclusively the operation of
animal organization may be obtained by artificial means. M.
Arago then laid before the Academy a communication from
M. Leymerie, Professor of the Faculty of Sciences at Tou-
louse, on the discovery of native mercury in the department
of the Aveyron. M. Leymerie having perceived in the house
of a peasant a considerable quantity of mercury, was led to
make inquiries as to the way in which it was obtained, and
ascertained that it was frequently collected in the beds of
rivulets, and on-the surface of the soil. He is of opinion
that the mountains of the Cevennes contain this valuable
metal in such masses as would constitute a source of great
national wealth, if the mines could be discovered. From
the indications already obtained it is hoped that the discovery
may be turned to account. A paper on the fall of a large
aerolite in Holland was nex tread. The fall was preceded by
a detonation, followed by a noise resembling the sound of a
harp, and the aerolite was found imbedded in the earth to
the depth of more than three feet.

The North American Review has an article ors
Dr. Drake's late pamphlet, "Northern Lakes and
Southern Invalids." We extract from it the fol-
lowing lively picture of Saratoga as it was, and as
it is. The sketch shows what change facilities of
travel produce :
"A great change has come over this American Spa within
a few years. We can remember the time when it affiliated

vate equipages, extras, exclusive extras, etc. forming the prin-
cipal means of conveyance for the crowd* that concentrated
there. Even the Carolinian and the Georgian, having in

selves for such a brief time there a full compensation for all
perils and privations encountered while outward and home-
ward bound. The classification of these crowds was then
most distinctly made out-the mode of reaching the place
marking, with the most obvious discrimination, the various
grades of wealth, if not of respectability, prevailing among
the visitors. Those who arrived in a coach and four were
wheeled up in the brightest hour of the day, and when the
balconies were most likely to be thronged with spectators-
feeling an assurance that all eyes would be turned on them
with curiosity and consideration, the latter being readily
paid in advance upon such unquestionable claims to receive
it. The way was promptly opened to the party, which slowly
descended the steps of the carriage and ascended those at the
hotel, and the saloon was reached in a sort of triumph, where
all was bustle and obsequiousness on the part of the host
and his attendants, spreading out before them the choice of
accommodations. The genealogy and public and private
history of such a party immediately became matters of geoae-
ral discussion. No gazetting could have given greater notoe.
riety. Fortunate were those who could bear the scrutiny
without any loss to that reputation which the equipage mug--
gested. The more modest carriage and pair had less blazon-
ry than the four in hand,' but was driven up with no mis-
givings as to its full title to respect and a complimentary
reception. The curricle tandem introduced the bachelor in
full-orbed pretension. In the descending scale came the
' hack,' which could not by disguised even by an adroit mask-
ing of the 'No.' or any other cunning devices assuming I the
resemblance of proprietorship. The cold shoulder wae put
forward against all such counterfeit presentments. The gig
or chaise called forth all degrees of indifference, from the
' temperate' of a passing glance down to the zero' of utter.
contempt. If those humble vehicles had an undisguised
trunk strapped on behind, in a make shift way, showing that
it had no finess for such extraordinary uses, the balconies
were either deserted or the promenade continued there as if
no arrival had occurred. If they contained a pair of the
sexes, the chances were that, after awaiting the coming of a
waiter until impatient at the delay, the woman had to enter
and announce their advent, leaving the man to hold the horse
in the mean time. No perceptible change of circumstances
took place even if an additional horse were seen harnessed
on the outside of the thills; (the whippletree being boomesdl
out to accommodate thedouble draught;) its pseudo character'
being at once detected. A genuine chaise passed better mus--
er than such a semi demi'semi curricle.
"The public stages brought up the rear. Those who
came in them were crowded, heated, dusted, and generally
afforded an exhibition of the pitiable and the ludicrous oo,-
tempting to be avoided by those who had nothing to do but
watch' the passing scene for something new and piquant.
As the passengers, during the trying interval which deter-
mined their fate, whether they were among the admitted or
the rejected, endeavored to conceal themselves from view, or
boldly sat wijh a look of affected indifference, trusting that
their flushed faces and begrimmed garments, when removed,
would leave little or no personal identity behind, a hundred
merry glances from the balconies showed that there were
privileged spectators there, who regarded a scene in a stage
as legitimate a subject of amusement and criticism as if upon
a stage. Happy those who, constrained by a narrow in-
come, or moved by a feeling of economy, had resorted to this
chartered, and therefore despised, conveyance, if some acci-
dent postponed its arrival until the shadows of evening
threw a friendly veil over the approach and entrance, and
enabled the party to escape unobserved to their rooms,
with a chance of emerging thence under appearances better
suited to the pretensions or real character of those who coam-
The change to which we have alluded, and which has
revolutionized all these distinctions, and fused all comers asi
it were into one mass, has been produced by the railroads
that connect these watering places with the capital of New,
York, The humble in mind and in fortune must rejoice in,
this levelling effect, however it may chagrin the millionaire
and the subordinate Diveses of the land. Amid the rush
that sets from the cars to the hotels, the owner of the fourth
in hand' is not distinguished from him who habitually rides
in a chaise, or even does not ride at all; while the jumble of
trunks and carpet bags-all of them of enormous capacity-
on the barrows amalgamates all differences that read names
might suggest; and he who can walk the fleetest, or elbow
the best, succeeds in entering his name on the book at the
bar first, and consequently, under the impartial rule that now
prevails, becomes 'first served.' Favored by such circuim-
stances, the plebeian may resort to these Springs as well as
the magnate. No externals decide the lot or standing there.
All, or nearly all, come and go, equally without triumph and
without defeat. Some, it is true, have a name dependent
upon no externals, which floats over the multitude at these
crowded places as well as elsewhere, and is always upper-
most. There are exceptions to the general rule: the truly
great are great at all times and in all places."

Massns. EDITORS: It is to the great value of its tropi
productions, far more than to the salubrity of its climate a
Ihe richness and variety of its soils, that East Florida ow
its importance. Rich lands and healthy climates are to
found in every State and Territory in the Union : but E
Florida is the only portion of the United States that c
boast of tropical productions. The very high value of tro
cal over other productions may be estimated by the fact tl
the exports from the island of Cuba alone, during the ye
1811, amounted to but a small fraction less than one-half
the exports of all the United States for the same ybsar.
That the southern portion of East Florida is well adapt
to the culture of coffee, sugar, cocoa, indigo, and, in short,
all the tropical staples and fruits, is, 1 believe, admitted by
who are capable of forming an opinion on the subject.
PETER S CHAZ )TTE, who had for seventeen 3 ears been
gaged in St. Domingo and elsewhere in the cultivation ofec
fee, cocoa, &c petitionedl Congress in 182a for permission
purchase about twenty-five thousand acres of land in Ea
Florida at the Government minimum price, with a view
the cultivation of tropical plants. As Mr. CHAZ3TTZ was
gentleman of great intelligence and of long practical ex|
rience as a tropical planter, and as he had spent some time
investigating the capabilities of East Florida, 1 shall he
present a few extracts from his statement to Congress respect
ing the productions of that peninsula. In speaking of t
production of coffee, he remarks:
In East Florida the land is neither too dry nor too w
nor is the climate too hot or too cold. This narrow neck
land, being washed by the sea on the south, east, and we
possesses all the advantages which an island enjoys-the s
brezeis modifying the scorching vertical rays ot the sun an
wafting away the approaching northern frost. Two opposi
opinions have been expressed and frequently repeated wi
respect to that country. Some assert it to be a dry sand
laId, and others a fist, muddy, unformed rising ground
These assertions are altogether unfounded, as m y be demo
etrated by merely recurring to its topography. We see a net
of land four hundred miles long and about one hundred at
thirty miles broad, from the opposite beaches of which tl
land rises gently and gradually towards the centre, where a
l ikes connected with each other from south to north, to a di
tance of about one hundred and fifty miles, without receive
any supply of water from any large foreign river, and abo
f rty small rivers whose sources are at from thirty to for
miles distant from both shores, an J whose waters are empt
ing themselves into the opposite seas. Now it is Impossib
for those great sinews of nature to exist in a fiat, mudd
ground, which could at most produce reeds, and not tl
stately trees which luxuriantly grow and cover its surface
On the other hand, if it be called a dry eandy desert, tl
Very existence of those Iskes and numerous rivers belies tho
assertions, for rivers and lakes are never found to spring at
exist in an entirely sandy country ; and such is the narrow
ness of this long neck of land that it must have a deep mou
and prolific bosom to produce, as it is known to do, state
forests of the most luxornant mixture, which are constantly
bloom, even in January and February, end the most besoaut
ful flowers, whose floral appearance made the discoverers
it award to that country the significant and appropriate nan

At Rio de Janeiro, the present seat of the King of Pc
tugal's American empire, lying under the 23d degree of laW
tude souih of the equator, and as far as the province of P
rans, or Assumption, which reaches the thirtieth degree
lith latitude, the coffee is found to grow. Why, then, shou
we not cultivate it between the twenty-fifth and twenty-s
venuth degree s of north latitude, that is to say in East Florid
Will it be said that under the twenty-seventh degree of la
tsdle to the southward of the equator it is hotter than und
its opposite degree north of it I This will be contradicted I
those navigators and persons who have visited the country.
Abaut 1765 an English gentleman of fortune went
establish himself in East Florida. His labors were crowns
with success, both in the culture of coffee and sugar canes
and his establishments were already considerable when tl
American Revolution, in its effects made Florida pass in
the hands of Spain. The British Government, finding th
this gentleman had so far succeeded, would not allow him
remain there. They carried him off with his slaves, am
destroyed every thing that he had planted; for which loss am
damages the British Government awarded to him a consider
able sum. Besides these, travellers who have visited thb
country assert to have seen coffee plants in several places, ni
cultivated for profit and revenue, but as a curiosity, the i
triasic value of which seems to have been unknown to tho
who had planted them."
"Mr. Carver says: So mild is the winter that the me
delicate vegetables and plants of the Carribee islands exp
Pence there not the least injury from that season ; the oramg
tree, the plantaine, the goyava, the pineapple, &c. grow lu:
uriantly. Fogs are ur.kown there, and no country can I
more salubrious.' Mr. Wm Stork, in his description of Ea
Florida, gives the following account of it: The production
of the northern and southern latitudes grow and blossom I
the side of each other, and there is scarcely another clima
in the world that can vie with this in displaying such
agreeable and ludturiant mixture of trees, plants, shrubs, am
fl ,were. The red and white pine and the evergreen oak ma
ry their boughs with the chestnut and mahogany trees; tl
walnut with the cherry, the maple with the campeach, ai
the haz lletto wi:h thosassafras tree, which, together, cov
here a variegated anil rich soil. The wax-myrtle tree grove
every where here. Oranges are larger, more aromatic at
succulent, than in Portugal. Plums naturally grow fine, am
of a quality superior to those gathered in the orchards
Spain. The wild vines serpentine on the ground, or din
up to the tops of trees. Indigo and cochineal were advant
geously cultivated there, and in the year 1777 produced a r
venue of two hundred thousand dollars.' In fine, I shall ad
that this country-will produce all the tropical fruits and st
ples by the side of those belonging to a northern climate."
The practicability of cultivating tropical productions su
eesefully in East Florida is further attested by the late E
Perrine, our former Consul at Campeachy, who in a lett
to the Secretary of the Treasury makes the following obas
"I wish thus to show, not merely that the cultivation
tropical staples is practicable in our territory, but also that
is absolutely necessary for home consumption, is positive
profitable for the foreign market, and is highly desirable
other respects to promote the peace and prosperity of tl
"The practicability of cultivating tropical productions
general 1 have made manifest with the facts that the peculi
climate of the tropics extends beyond the astronomical bou
dary, several degrees north, into our peninsular territory; ai
that the best plants of the tropics are actually flourishing
the southern portion of that peninsula at Cape Florida.
have not only shown that below 28 Southern Florida enjo
the dry warm winter, the wet refreshing summer, the bree:
by day from the sea and by night from the land, and the tra,
winds from the east, which are common to tropical countni
in general; but I have also proved, by its narrow level at
face stretching southeastwardly, by the hot ocean river ru
ning northwestwardly along its eastern shores, and by tl
greater steadiness of the westwardly wind in those latitude
that tropical Florida is even superior to the elevated islan
of the West Indies and to the broad peninsula of Yucatan
that uniformity of temperatures which is most favorable f
vegetable growths, animal health, and physical enjoyment.
I have, moreover, not merely shown that in this superi
climate of the tropics are already growing various ceumi,
vegetables of the tropics, but I have further announced tl
flourishing condition of the tenderest and yet most product
plants of the torrid zone-the banana plant end the ooc
palm, which are universally pronounced to be the greats
blessings of Providence to man. And it may hence be co
sidered experimentally demonstrated that it is practicable
cultivate all the tropical productions in the soil of the sout
erm portion of the peninsula of East Florida."
It is quite unnecessary to adduce further evidence of ti
tropical character of East Florida, as all who are skeptical,
the subject can be readily convinced by a visit to the south
portion of the peninsula, where they may see the cocoa tIr
the plantain, the orange, the lime, the lemon, the arrowrot
the banana, &c. growing as luxuriantly as they do in any
the West India islands. There is certainly no portion
the United States that can compare with East Florida
the variety and value of its productions. It produces well
the root and grain crops of the Northern Stales, and a
the great staples of the Southern States, in addition to tl
still more valuable productions which belong exclusively
tropical latitudes. It is owing to the latter productions th
even the inferior lands in that peninsula can be render,
much more valuable than the best lands in any other portion
of the United States.
If we take, for example, an acre of the best land in Loui
iana (the Louisiana lands are considered the most valuahb
in the United States) and cultivate it in sugar, it will, in tl
most favorable season, yield one thousand pounds, which,
fiveents per pound, amounts to fifty dollars; and this is tl
most valuable crop that can be produced in Louisiana.
If, on the other band, we take, in E tat Florida, an acre
second-rate pins land which has been cowpenned" am
cultivate it in sugar, it will yield twelve hundred pound
which, at five cents per pound, amounts to sixty dollars.
If we cultivate an acre of tW# meCond-Tate pine lad ip s
Alend cotton, (a staple which grows every where in Eut
Florida,) the average product will be three hundred pounds'
which, at the average price of twenty.five cents, will amount
to seventy five dollars; which exceeds the yield of South
Carolina in this its most valuable staple.
If an acre of this land be cultivated in Cuba tobacco, to
which it is admirably adapted, it will yield from five to seven
hundred pounds of leaves for cigar wrappers, wortb fifty cents
per pound, besides two crops of ratoons for fillings, which
will amount, altogether, to at least four hundred dollars per
An acre of this same description of land cultivated in
oranges, ou the St. John's river, has actually yielded thesuom
of eighteen hundred dollaIse!
It would be tedious to mention the vast variety of tropical
fruits and staples, the cultivation of any one of which would
render the second-rate pine lands of East Florida far more
valuable than the best lands in any other portion of the Uni-
Cowpenning is all that is necessary to prepare the se
cond-rate pine lands of East Florida for the production of the
most valuable staples that are produced in any country; and
this mode of manuring is attended with scarcely any expense.
In a region where cattle cost nothing to keep them-where,
without housing or feeding in winter, they thrive on the na-
tural pastures ,f the country, which are every where abun-
dant-and where they increase with great rapidity, every
man will, of course, have a large stock in a short time, if he
have only a few pairs to begin with. Indeed, capital invest-
ed in stock yields, in East Florida, a greater return than cai
be obtained for it by any other agricultural operation.
One hundred head of cattle will manuie an acre of this se-
cond-rate pine land well by being penned on it every night for
one week ; so that a farmer with but three hundred head of
cattle (a very moderate stock in East Florida) can annually
manure one hundred and fifty six acres so that it will produce
the best and most valuable crops for three successive years,
and at the expiration of that time he can have matured four
hundred and sixty-eight acres more by the same number of
cattle, and more than twice that quantity if allowance be
made for the natural increase of his stock.
The expense of clearing and cowpenning an acre of second
rate pine land in East Florida is by no means so great as that
of simply clearing an acre of the heavily timbered alluvial
land of Louisiana; and from what has been stated of the
great disparity in the relative value of the productions of
those lands, it must appear evident that "even the inferior
lands of East Florida possess a value far beyond that of the
best lands in any other portion of the United States."
In my next communication I shall discuss still further the
productions of East Florida.

THE LOUISIANA ELECTION.
The New Orleans Whig papers of the 10th in-
stant give up to our opponents every Congressional
district in the State, so that Messrs. SLIDELL, LA-
BRANCHE, DAWSON, and BossrEs, all "Democrats,"
will represent that State in the 28th Congress. The
Bee says, further, that on the Convention question
(submitted to popular suffrage) the vote is no doubt
in favor of it by a large majority.
Our readers will find, in the letter in the next
column, frontt a source entitled to entire conse-
quence,) what the Whigs of New Orleans think of
this result and its effect.
THE CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO CANAL.
The following brief article on this interesting
subject is front the pen of a practical citizen who
is familiar with the history and progress of the great
work to which he refers, and his communication is
the more readily admitted because he is no inte-
rested person-that is, as we believe, not interested
in any of the mineral companies of the Alleghany,
nor in the canal itself beyond the interest possessed
by the community at large in a work of so great
public importance and probable utility:
I rjoice to see, by a statement in the Baltimore papers,
that a contract has at last been made to complete this Canal
up to Cumberland.
It is clear that, until the Canal is completed to that point,
neither the State of Maryland, nor the District of Columbia,
nor any other stockholder, locality, or interest can derive any
benefit from previous sacrifices and expenditures; and it is
equally clear that until so completed all these interests are
subject to the most distressing exhaustion from the loss of all
benefit from the large capital already invested in the work,
and from the absence of that increase of trade so justly and so
long expected from the Canal.
If there be any fault in the matter, it is that it has been too
long delayed ; but better late than never. Now the great
iron and coal interests of the Alleghany, the'commercial ex-
pectations of the District, and the stockholder interest have
their long protracted hopes revived. The day is fixed on
which the fruition of their just expectations will commence;
and when we reflect upon the energy and talents of the Pre-
sident of the Company, his well-established ability to manage
complicated and extensive matters, and the singular devotion
and perseverance which he infuses into whatever he under.
takes to do, we have no doubt of his success within the time
specified in the contract."
PROPOSED NATIONAL MASS CONVENTION.
At the Whig Celebration of the late National
Anniversary in the city and county of Philadelphia
the following appears among the published pro-
Prior to the adjournment the following resolution was
offered by JAMeS S. WALLACE, Esq. and carried amidst the
most unbounded acclamation:
"Resolved, That the Whigs of Philadelphia tender an
invitation to the Whigs of the WHOLE UsNIoN to meet in
Grand Mass Convention on the 4th of July, 1844, at Inde
pendence Square, in the city of Philadelphia, to respond to
the nomination of the National Whig Convention."
We trust this invitation, issued by the Whigs of
Philadelphia to the Whigs of the Union, to respond
to the nomination of the Whig National Conven-
tion which meets at Baltimore in May next, will be
circulated from Maine to Florida, from the Atlantic
to the Oregon. We are all aware of the influence
Which the Mass Convention at Baltimore in 1840
had upon the Whig party ; associations were there
entered into, friendships formed, correspondences
arranged, opinions interchanged, and promises given
which acted as the bond and cement of the entire
Harrison party throughotit the Union. It was the
first giant impulse given to the avalanche of 18411;
the first roll of the ball" which crushed Locofo-
coism in its onward course; the Lexington of the
moral and political revolution of the people against
their taskmasters and oppressors!
The invitation is extended in unbounded cordiali-
ty, and we trust it will be accepted in the same spirit
of fraternal kindness. We ask our Whig brethren
of the press to be bearers of the request which
Philadelphia city and county makes to the Whigs of
the Union, and to promulgate through their columns
that every arrangement will be made for their com-
fort and convenience. Come one, come all! and
here let us ratify anew those bonds of amity and
kindness which treachery has been unable to sunder,
and which time can never impair !-Phila. Forum.

in the trade used for manufacturing counterfeit coin; also, a

NEW ORLEANS, JULY 8, 1843.
MESSRS. GALES & SEATON: I hope you will
not allow yourselves to be discouraged as regards
our prospects in this State for 1844 by the result of
the recent election. The first district, as now con-
stituted, and which has just elected Mr. SLIDELL to
Congress, has always been Locofoco, except in
1840, when it gave a small Whig majority, but in
the contest for Governor in 1838 for Mr. PEIEUR,
and again last year for Mr. MOUTON, it went against
us; in the former case by a larger majority than
now. In the present contest, for the first time with
us, the enemy have adopted a regular system of
making foreign votes, and from five to six hundred
of that class have been naturalized within the last
few weeks-to find which number, particularly at
this season of the year, they have raked and scraped
the highways and byways, the streets, alleys, lanes,
and gutters of the city, and with all these means,
and with an apathy on the part of the Whigs which
we could not overcome, Mr. SLIDELL'S majority in
the district is less than four hundred.
In the second district the apathy has been even
greater, and not even half of the full vote has been
polled ; our candidate, Governor WHITE, has pro-
bably been re-elected by a small majority.
The third district has always been hopelessly
Locofoco, and Mr. DAWSON of course is re-elected,
and we prefer him to any other man of their party.
The Locos boast much of their chances for suc-
cess in the fourth district, where they are running a
very popular Creole (Mr. BOSSIER) against Mr.
MOORE, and shall not be surprised if he succeeds,
as party trammels hang very loosely on our Creole
Whigs, where ihat question comes up, and you
have on more than one occasion seen our Legisla-
ture with a decided Whig majority elect a Locofoco
Creole Sentator against an American WVhig.
With all the recent events fresh before us,
Louisiana is Whig, Whig to the core, and in
1844, when we will have a CAUSE and a CANDI-
DATE that will arouse the party, you will see how
she will shake Locofocoism from her skirts and
scatter it to the four winds of heaven. The man-
ner in which the officeholders (Federal and
State) worked in the late contest exceeds all former
precedent. None were too high and none too low
to take, each in their proper sphere, the full share of
labor, pnd a large number of the most active and
influential were those appointed under the late and
previous Whig administrations of the Slate ; for
whilst the present Executive carries out to the ex-
treme the doctrine of political proscription in all his
appointments, the Whigs, kind souls, have generally
filled their offices with a full share of their enemies,
and verily they are now receiving their reward.
But I again say to you, and say to our friends, be of
good cheer as regards Louisiana. In July, 1844,
you shall hear the first Whig gun booming long and
loud from her over the land as you did in July, 1840.
Business is nearly closed for the season. Our
crops, both for sugar and cotton, are very unfavor-
able ; the almost constant rains for the last five or
six weeks have greatly impaired the former, which
had already suffered previously by a long drought;
the corn crop from the same causes will be almost
an entire failure ; the cotton crop has also greatly
suffered for the same reasons, and, in addition, tlhe
uncommon high water of the Mississippi has proba-
bly destroyed equal to one hundred thousand bales
on the banks of the streams, where a great many
plantations have been and are overflown. At this
moment the water is on a level with most of our
wharves opposite the city, and a few inches further
rise would create very extensive injury. Thus far
the season has been very healthy, and will, I hope
and believe, continue so. Our banks are all (that
is, all that are left of them) in a sound and healthy
condition ; the specie they hold, in the aggregate,
is more than dollar for dollar of all their responsi-
bilities, and their great complaint is that they are
overburdened with it.
Exchanges are very steady, but the transactions are
limited. Freights low and dull, and but little ship-
ping in port, and but a limited quantity of produce
P. S. Since the preceding was written the re-
turns from the second district give reason to believe
that Mr. WHITE is defeated by a small majority.
The apathy has exceeded all belief; in 1840 the
Whig majority in this district was 1,900, and now
the aggregate vote of both parties will not exceed
2,000 I have now but little doubt the entire dele-
gation of the State will be Locobfoco. The whole
number of votes polled is less by one-half than
was given in the last contest.
A REBUKE.-While listening the other night to the opera
at Niblo's, a gentleman annoyed the neighborhood in which
we sat by pertinaciously insisting on singing with every one
who opened his or her mouth upon the stage. While Le-
court was performing a song our amateur kept up his run-
ning accompaniment. At length, a gentleman sitting next
to him remarked with quick petulance, I wish Lecourt
would not sing so loud!' Why so 1" demanded the ama-
teur. "Because he prevents me from enjoying your singing
of this song."-Express.
DEATH FOa WANT OF FOOD -The Mobile Register has a
report ot a coroner's jury upon the death ef a female, named
Mrs. Ann Land. She was a poor widow, in bad health,
having a sickly child of five or six years of age, both of them,
it is supposed, having suffered from the want of proper food,
as well as from exposure. The poor woman, it appeared, had
slept the night previous in an old mill in the lower part of the
city, and her stomach was found, on examination, quite emp-
ty. When she reached the house at which she died, she
was unable to articulate distinctly, and had been there but a
short time before she fell from her seat and expired.
TELLING A LIE TO OsLIOC A LADY.-Under this caption
a New York paper gives an account of a transaction in
which a gallant Hibernian got himself into trouble for mere-
ly trying to get a lady out of it by stretching the truth. A
letter carrier delivered a letter to the wife of a Mr. Murray,
of that city. The letter was of course sealed, but the curi-
osity of the lady, for which her sex is to blame, according
to the received notion, more than the lady herself, induced
her to read its contents. It being a business-letter alone, she
was anxious to have it delivered to her husband. But, as it
happened that just at that time there existed between herself
and her husband one of those little interludes o1 love com-
monly called a coolness, which now and then takes place
"in the best of families," the lady was unwilling to let her
husband know that she opened the letter, and requested a
Mr. Hugh Qufinn to say that he did it; and Mr. Quinn,
thinking himself bound in common politeness to tell a lie
for the lady, and little dreaming of the trouble it was to cost
him, at once complied with her request, and shortly- after
fund himself a prisoner in the United States Court under-
going an examination for a high crime and misdemeanor.
The committal of an offence, such as he was charged with,
is imprisonment for one year and a fine of *300. As be had
involved himself in truth on her account, she as generously
came to his assistance, confessed that Quinn was not guilty,
and he was accordingly discharged ; and, when leaving the
court, fervently vowed that he would never again tell a lie
for a lady as long as he lived.
JoHN DALY, who was cook at the Washington Hall in
Tallahassee at the time of the fire at that place on the 25th
May last, was committed to jail on the 5th instant, charged
with having confessed on different occasions that he set fire
to the town.
ACGcIDENTS AT PHILADELPHIA.-On Saturday a young man
about 26 years of age, named Alexander Warnock, a sailor
in the United States service, was killed by falling from the
roof of the Hope Engine-house into the yard.
On the same day a fatal accident occurred on the Dela-
ware, near the Navy Yard, by which Mr. Thomas Clifton,
tavern keeper, of Second street, Southwark, lost his life. He
and a companion were in a small boat fishing, when they
were run over by a steamboat.
As one of the female passengers of the Solon, lying at
Vine street wharf, was about coming on shore on Saturday
afternoon her foot slipped, and she fell between the vessel
and the wharf. She was hardly in the water a moment
when one of the sailors divested himself of his jacket, and
plunged in after her, and brought her out in safety. His
conduct is entitled to unmeasured praise.
A like noble act was performed by a little boy about twelve
years old, who, being at Walnut street wharf and seeing a
little fellow fall into the water and struggling for life, jumped
in and brought him ashore in safety.

JUST TRIBUTE TO MR. FILLMORE.
FROM THE MICHIOAN STATE JOURNAL.
It will be seen by the annexed correspondence that Mr.
FILLMORE has declined the invitation of our citizens to par-
take of a public dinner. We regret that circumstances have
compelled this gentleman to decline the invitation, certain
as we are that there is no man in the country more deserv-
ing of such an honor, and to whom our citizens would more
cheerfully award it, than MILLARD FILLMORE.
ANN ARBOR, JUNE 20, 1843.
SIR. We, the undersigned, citizens of Ann Arbor, hav-
ing learned that you recently passed through our village on
a visit to a neighboring town, beg leave to extend to you an
invitation to meet our fellow-citizens at a public dinner at
such time as may suit your convenience.
We assure you, sir, that it will afford our fellow citizens
enfeigned pleasure to have such an opportunity of testify-
ing their gratitude to you for faithful public services rendered
the country during a series of years in the national councils,
and more especially for your untiring and indefatigable ex
ertions during the trying scenes of the late Congress.
To your persevering and devoted efforts to raise supplies
for the support of the Government, thus preserving its credit
untarnished at home and abroad, and to place the industrial
interests of the country on a solid and permanent basis by
the passage of the tarif bill, we believe the nation is mainly
indebted for the success of these measures.
In the midst of trials and embarrassments unexampled in
the history of the Government it is gratifying to know that
the Whig members of Congress displayed a self-sacrificing
spirit,a stern adherence to principle, and an ardent devotion
to the Whig cause, which has drawn forth the admiration of
political opponents, and which will find a sure reward in the
thanks of a grateful and confiding people.
To you, sir, as one of those who stood first and foremost
in the great coi flict waged by Executive dictation and du
plicity on one side, and the rights and liberties of the People
on the other, we tender our sincere thanks for your gal-
lant bearing, aid for your uncompromising adherence to
principle during all the trying scenes of the contest. We
sincerely hope, dear sir, that you will be able to meet us at
the proposed festival, and that you will name such a day as
will accord with your o'her arrangements.
We have the honor to be, with great respect, your obedi-
[Signed by Dwight Kellogg and others.]
Hon. MILLARD FILLMORE.
DEXTER, JUNE 21, 1843.
GENTLEMEN : I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt
of your letter of yesterday, inviting me to visit your town
and to meet your citizens at a public dinner at such time as
might suit my convenience.
Embarrassed as I am by this unexpected manifestation of
your kindness and approbation, I have scarcely time or lan-
guage to express the grateful emotions which I feel.
I cannot for a moment consent to appropriate to myself
your flattering remarks in favor of the conduct of the late
Congress. My services were quite too humble and insignifi
cant in that honorable body. The merit of those acts be-
longs to the great body of Whigs who composed the majority
'of that assembly. It was their self-sacrificing devotion, amid
difficulties and embarrassments that few can appreciate
which supplied the means of an exhausted Treasury, and
saved the country from disgrace and bankruptcy. It was
the same ardent devotion to the welfare of the country which
sustained them, though bafthid and defeated, until they es
tablished, by a judiclfs tariff, permanent revenues for the
support of the Government, and a lasting foundation for the
prosperous industry and commercial independence of the
country. Your approbation is justly due to that able and
devoted body, and the time will come when an enlightened
and intelligent community will delight to bestow it. But I
have only time now to allude to it, and to disclaim for my-
self what is so justly due to others, and what it would be ar-
rogance in me, even by implication or silence, to appropriate
Nothing could be more grateful to my feelings than the
time and occasion that have called forth this testimony cf
your approbation. Had my visit among you been of a politi-
cal character, or were I a candidate for any official station,
or even now in office, I might have suspected that some local
or political object was sought to be promoted: but no sus
picion of this kind alloys the pleasure which I take in ex
pressing to you the deep sensibility with which I have re-
ceived this generous testimony of your kind regard. Were
it possible to comply with your request, I should anticipate
additional pleasure from th. fact that I perceive among the
names of those who have thus honored me not only the
worth and respectability of your beautiful and flourishing
town, but the names of some who are dear to me as the cher
ished friends of my early youth. Could any thing tempt me
for a moment to delay my journey, such a banquet, with
such friends, amidst the feast of reason and the flow of soul,"
would most certainly do it; but I regret to say that I am
hastloning to visit a beloved sister who I fear is languishing
upon a bed of death, and i trust this will be deemed a suffi-
cient reason for my declining your flattering invitation.
Please accept the assurance of my highest respect and
esteem, and believe me, most sincerely and truly, your friend
and fellow-citizen, MILLARD FILLMORE.

of Ann Arbor.
GOV. WOODBRIDGE, OF MICHIGAN.
FROM THE DETROIT DAILY ADVERTISER.
GOV. WOODBaIDGI last week made a journey to Romeo,
in Macomb county, on private business. The citizens ol
Mt. Clemens, without distinction of party, hearing of his
intended trip, invited him to stop at that village. He com-
plied, and was received at the Court-house in the most fl it-
tering manner by a public meeting. We have received a
glowing account of the reception from a friend at Mt. Cle-
mens, which we find amply confirmed in the last Patriot,
published at that village. The following is our friend's letter:
MT. CLEMENS, JULY 1, 1843.
My DEAR SIR : The meeting and reception of Governor
WOODBRIDuE on Thursday at this place was a magnificent
affair. The Court-house at the appointed hour was crowded
to overflowing with ladies and gentlemen without distinction
of party. Judge THURaSTON addressed him in a very neat
and eloquent manner, to which the Governor replied in one
of his happiest efforts. At times he was peculiarly eloquent
and interesting ; every body appeared delighted. A proces-
sion was formed at the Court-house and waited upon the
Governor to his lodgings at Mr. Ashley's, where the ladies
also called upon him. Perry in the Patriot notices the meet-
ing. I send you his paper herewith. Yours, &c.
The following is the notice of the Patriot alluded to above
by our correspondent. We will only add to it, that the liberal
course of the editor in this matter, as well as of our political
opponents generally, is highly creditable to them and to their
thriving village. We are sure that our respected Senator
wiH long remember it with affectionate gratitude :
"The meeting on the afternoon of Thursday last for the
reception of the Hon. WILLIAM WOODBRIDOE was a most
splendid affair. The court-room was well filled with ladies
and gentlemen. Hon. P. B. TuuasToN presided at the meet-
ing and made an el,'quent speech in welcoming Mr. Wood.
bridge, to which Mr. WOODseIDOE replied in his usually
modest and happy manner. The whole scene was impres-
sive. Here was the good man receiving, not from a few in--
terested partisan leaders, but from all, high and low, rich and
poor, irrespective of all party distinctions, the spontaneous
welcome of an independent people and the plaudit of well
done good and faithful servant." It cannot be otherwise than
gratifying to Mr. WooDnaIDGE to have this seal of approba-
tion placed upon his past conduct, and will serve to stimulate
him in a steady perseverance in doing right. Our earnest
prayer is that the number of his days may be lengthened,
even far beyond the estimated period allotted to men, and
that he may continue to deserve and enjoy the increasing
confidence and respect of his fellow-ci'izens."

VALUABLE FAIRFAX LAND FOR SALI.
This tract contains 510 acres, situated on the north side of,
and near the Leesburg and Georgetown turnpike, distant from
the latter and Washington city less than eight miles. About
three-fourths of the land is covered with timber and the best
quality of wood, which may be conveniently carried to market by
the road or canal, (the eastern boundary, in part, being the Poto-
mac,) and with good management the proceeds thereof would
pay for the land. The fresh soil is of excellent quality, and the
open fields are in an improving condition by the application of
lime, clover, and plaster. Lime can be purchased in George-
town at ten cents a bushel. The orchard consists of about 260
apple and peach trees. Part of the bottom land is now in produc-
tive meadow. The situation is healthy, and abounds with nume-
rous springs of fine water, and one of the staansia is sufficient to
drive a saw-mill.
For the terms of sales, &c. application may be made to THOMAS
S. LovR, Eaq Fairfax Court-house, Virginia, or to the subscri-
ber. Mr. HIaeT, who resides near the premises, (on Commodore
JoNies's farm,) will show the land to any one who may desire to
purchase. ROGER JONES.

Public officers and others who will be so good as to examine
this inkstand will perceive that it combines several advantages
never before offered to the Puhlic, It is so entirely closed against
dust or evaporation, that it is impossible even to shake the ink
from it when held in any position, while the pen always receives
its full supply of ink, and no more. More complete and effec-
tual in its results than any, this inkstand is as simple as the most
plain, being entirely without the joints, screws, caps, and other
elaborations which have disgraced the scientifically complicated
inkstands of modern date. The principle upon which it acts
being a new application of the principles of hydrostatics, will at
once be understood on inspection; it is entirely effectual, and
combines at once durability with entire simplcitv. an 20

HIGHLY IMPORTANT AND INTERESTING.
T O THE CITIZENS OF WASHINGTON.-It lis general-
ly known to our philanthropic citizens that the Freemen's
Vigilant Total Abstinence Society have been induced to com-
mence the erection of a Hall, to subserve the purposes and cause
of Temperance, and that to enable them to do it the Society have
determined to appeal tothe sympathies and liberality of their fel-
low-citizens for donations and subscriptions of stock. The ven-
erable Join P. VAN Nass, Esq. has made them a most liberal
donation of a lot, subject only to the following restrictions, which
will forever secure it as the grand rallying point in this city of the
Extracts from Gen. Van Ness's Letlter of June 13, 1843.
1 will proceed to specify such intended exclusions' as occur
to me, viz: A warehouse, store, or factory, fortrade, &c ; a house
of entertainment or tavern; assembly-rooms; a theatre ; anodeon ;
a museum; a printing establishment; a college, or university for
general instruction or science; private residence or residences
not necessary for the safety or comfortable maintenance of the
buildings, or as useful minor appendages, to forward most ad-
vantageously by lecturing, discoursing, exhorting, teaching, and
inculcating the Temperance doctrine and creed; even a church,
for conclusive reasons that will doubtless strike you.
1 propose that in case of a diversion of the property from its
intended and legitimate destination, the lot is to revert, &c
Now, in such reversion I do not mean to include the buildings or
improvements erected or made by the Society ; but if the contin-
gency should ever unfortunately occur, (which God forbid 1) from
any untoward causes whatever, that the contemplated establish-
ment, as a great Temperance Hall or Rendezvous, shall be de-
termined by those who may have the legal possessory right to be
otherwise appropriated and used, 1 shall, in that event, expect
the ground only to revert; that is, the institution may, within
say one year, remove or dispose of the building; or they may, if
more to their interest dispose of the joint property, reserving or
yielding to me only the fair price at the time of the ground-apart
from the buildings-such a price as it would be worth in case
there were no building thereon."
At a meeting of the Stock Committee on Monday evening, July
10, in order to carry out the objects of the S&ciety,-the following
preamble and resolutions were adopted :
Whereas, the Stock Committee of the Freemen's Vigilant To-
tal Abstine, ce Society being convinced that the citizens of Wash-
ington are favorably disposed to the cause of Total Abstinence,
and that they would freely contribute for the erection of a Tern-
perarce Hall, if called upon; therefore,
Resolved That a proper application be made to the citizens,
and that an authorized Agent be appointed to wait upon them and
solicit subscriptions of stock and donations.
Resolved, That AUGusTus F. CUNNINuiUAM be and heis here-
by appointed said Agent, and he is hereby authorized and empow-
ered to receive and receipt for subscriptions of stock, and accept
donations to be applied to the erection of the contemplated Tem-
perance Hall in the city of Washington.
Resolved, That the above resolutions be published in all the
papers of the city.
A true copy from the minutes.
DARIUS CLAGETT, Chairman.
Tests: Z. K. OFFUTr, Secretary.
In accordance with the above resolutions and appointment, the
subscriber will wait upon the citizens generally at as early a day
as practicable, when he trusts the hopes and expectations of the
Society and the committee will be realized.

W WRITING FLUIDS, COPYING AND WRI-
TING INKS.-W. FISCHER, importer and dealer
n Fancy avd Staple Stationery, has recently received, direct
from the manufacturer in London, Stephens's patent blui-black
Writing Fluid. This article, which writes of a blue t first, has
the peculiar property of becoming an intense black afterwards;
it contains combinations calculated to ensure a higher degree of
permanence, with greater facility of writing, more especially with
steel pens, than ever can be attained by the black dyes, colors,
or common Inks. It has been in extensive use in all climates for
several years. It answers admirably for use with the copying
machine, and is used in several of the offices of Government,
particularly the Department of State.
Terry's Copying Ink. The peculiar property of this Ink is the
facility with which it renders a most perfect copy; it also possesses
every other essential quality requisite in the best writing Ink.
This Ink will yield a copy within twenty-four hours after writing.

Writing Ink. Also constantly on hand, Maynard and Noyes,

Ink ever offered to tl e public ; it has no sediment, and forms no
incrustation about the pens or ink-holder, and flows with remark-
able facility. mar 24
