IMPROVEMENT in whatever regards the happiness and
welfare of our race is constantly on the march to perfection,
and with each succeeding day some new problem is solved or
some profound secretrevealed, having an important and direct bear-
ing over man's highest destinies. If we tike a retrospective view
over the past twenty years, how is the mind struck with wonder
What rapid strides has science made in every departmentof civil-
ized life, particularly in that which relates to the knowledge of the
human system in health and disease How valuable and indis-
pensable are the curative means recently discovered through the
agency of chemistry I How does the imagination kindle and our
admiration glow at the ingenuity, the near approach to the stand-
ard of perfection of the present timeI Through the elaborate
investigsti.na of Physiology, or the science of life, and the pa-
thliulogy of pre lent 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 to combine' with, neutralize, and expel mor-
bific matter, the cause of disease, 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 reasonings 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 t6 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
maladies, has given it an exalted character, furnishing as it does
evidence of its own intrinsic value, and recommending it to the
afflicted in terms the afflicted only can know. It has long been
a most important desideratum in the practice of medicine to obtain
a remedy similar to this-one that would act on the liver, sto-
Smach, and bowels with all the precision and potency of mineral
preparations, yet without any of their deleterious effects upop the
vital powers of die. c.ysu.
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.
NxwAmg, N J. DaCpEaisa 13, 1842.
Mesars. Sansd q entlermen,; Words cannot express the
gratitude 4 feel for your treatment to me, a stranger, suffering
under one of the most loathsome diseases that nature is capable ot
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 the 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 Bushe, who'told me the disease
of the arm was caused by the large quantity of mercury taken to
cure the inflammation of my ryes.
My sufferings continued, the arm enlarged, tumors formed in
different places, and in a few months 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 A pe 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 I 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 te 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 hard I could scarcely get my breath. A
hacking cough constrntly annoyed me, and this, combined with
other maladies, rendered me tritly miserable. Such, gentlemen,
had been my situation for seven years of my life, when I conm-
menced the use of your Sarsaparills ; but as my casa was con-
sidered hopeless, and the near prospect uf a speedy dissolution
seemed inevitable, I 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 wau to be amputated ihas entirely healed-a thing that
seemed impossible. 1 can scarcely believe the evidence of my
own eyes, but such is the fact; and it ia nohw aa ieful as at any
period of my life, and my general health is better thanj it he
been for years past.
Health what magic in the word, how many thousands have
sought it in foreign lands and sunny climes, and have sought in
vain I Yet.it came to me when had 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 neat 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. 1 have been raised from death, 1 may say, for
my friends and myself thought it impossible 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
flitted may also use it, and enjoy the benefits it alone can confer,
is the heartfelt, fervent wish of their and your friend,

WONDERFUL EFFECTS OF SANDS'S SARSAPARILLA IN
Read the following from Mrs. William Phillips, who has long
resided at the Falls. The facts are well known 'o all the old re-
sidents in that part of the city t
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 expected, and even for a long while despaired of, cure.
Mine is a painful story; and trying and 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 neceest ry to add 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. From 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 I was almost entirely deprived of sleep. During
this time the erysipelas continued active and the ulcers enlarged,
and so deeply lhave these eaten, that for two and a half years they
have been subject to bleeding. During these almost twenty years
1 have consulted many physicians. These have called my dis.
ease-as it was attended with an obstinate cougb, 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, by the timely interposition 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 hed not once felt. Upon taking the second
bottle my enlargement diminished, and in twelve days from the
8th of October, when 1 commenced taking your Sarsaparilla, I
was able to enjoy sleep undressed by night, as refreshing as any
I ever enjoyed when in perfect health. Besides, I was in this
short time relieved from all those excruciating and unalleviated
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, unr,-
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 and despairing as your
much relieved and yvery grateful friend;

is by no means exaggerated. But the general form of the

open courts adorned by columns, can no longer be distinctly
traced. Their ruins are scattered about us in the form of
enormous blocks of granite and a hard calcareous stone re-

SHaving now completed our survey of the whole district of

In connexion with this subject, I beg leave again to refer
to the supposed existence of an ancient canal by which the
Mediterranean was united with the Red Sea through the river
Nile and the Isthmus of Suez, which is briefly noticed in my
letter of the 15th July on the projected Panama Cinal. A
short historical deduction on the subject of-the Egyptian ca-
nal may not be without interest in this connexion.
The commerce with India was carried on through the
Arabian Gulf by the Phenicians from very early times, and
by the Jews during the flourishing reigns of David and Solo-
mon. The religious prejudices of the ancient Egyptians
against navigation by sea seem to have been first overcome
in the reign of Rhamses-Sesostris, who is said to have con-
ducted a maritime expedition against India through the Ara-
bian Gulf. However this may be, we learn from Herodotus
that Necos, (Nechao II,) the son of Psammerticus, (who
began to reign 616 B. C ) first commenced the construction
of a canal from the Pelusiac, or most eastern branch of the
Nile, to the northern extremity of the Red Sea.* It was to
be four days' navigation in length, and sufficiently wide to
admit the passage of two trireme gallies abreast. Neuos dis-
continued the undertaking after one hundred and twenty
thousand men had perished in the work, upon an unfavorable
answer received from the oracle which he had consulted, that
he was laboring for the Barbardan. The execution of the
project was resumed after the Persian conquest by Darius
Hystaspes. (Euterpe, lib. ii.)
Aristotle, who lived more than a century after Herodotus,
says (Meteor. tit. i, cap. xiv.) that the Pharaohs, who had
promised themselves great advantages from the construction
of this canal, relinquished the undertaking after having as-
certained that the Red Sea was higher than the land of
Diodorous Siculus (lib. i, s. i) states that the canal was
discontinued by Darius upon a report made by his engineers,
who had ascertained that the land of Egypt was lower than
the waters of the Red Sea, and consequently apprehended
that the country might be overflown by an inundation from
the former. Had the ancients been acquainted with the in-
vention of locks this difficulty might have been easily obvia-
ted. Indeed Diodorus represents that the work was resumed
and completed by Ptolemy II, who obviated the supposed
danger of inundation by means of what he called a euripos
very ingeniously constructed, which opened and shut to let
vessels pass into and out of the canal.
Strabo (cap. xvii.) is the next ancient author who speaks
of the canal, which he says passed by the Bitter Lakes and
entered the Red Sea at Arsinoe or Cleopatris, (the modern
Suez,) and was first excavated by Sesostris before the war
of Troy. Some writers," says he, think that it was
commenced by the son of Psammeticus, who, being sur-
prised by death, it was continued by Darius, and afterwards
abandoned by this Prince upon an erroneous representation
that the Red Sea was more elevated than the land of Egypt,
and consequently that if the isthmus were cut through the
sea would inundate that country. The Ptolemies finally
completed the work, and caused to be constructed a euripos
which permitted'an easy navigation from the interior canal
to the sea, and from the sea to the canal."
Strabo seems not quite consistent in stating the represen-
tation of the engineers of Darius to be erroneous, since he
himself goes on to relate how the danger (which modern
observations have shown to be real) was obviated by Ptolemy
Philadelphus. Baron de Toti (M6moires sur les Turcs,
Pt'e iii ) supposes that the contrivance mentioned by Diodo-
rus and Strabo was the same with the modern lock ; and
slates that the traces of this monument are still to be dis-
cerned at Suez. DQt tthe Greek term euripos merely implies
a narrow passage through a dike, which might be opened
and closed by means of floating bodies, so as to permit ves
sels to pass on the same level of water, according to the prac,
tice which was used in the infancy of the art before the in-
vention of locks. The vestiges observed at Suez are those
of the ancient dikes, by which the waters of the sea were
prevented from rushing into the canal, and which were fur-
nished with a rude contrivance like that mentioned by Diodo-
rus for the passage of vessels.
Pliny (lib. vi. cap. xxix.) says the design of the canal was
first conceived by Sesostris, resumed by Darius, and subse-
quently executed by Ptolemy II. This latter monarch con-
tinued the canal one hundred feet wide and thirty feet deep
to the Bitter Lakes,(lacus arnmari,) where the work was dis-
continued from the fear of inundating the circumjacent coun-
try, the Red Sea having been ascertained to be above the
level of the land of Egypt. Other authors had attributed
the discontinuance of the work to the fear of rendering im-
pure the waters of the Nile, which are used for drinking.
Supposing the canal to have been actually completed by
Ptolemy Philadelphus, as represented by several ancient
writers, it seems probable that the hydraulic works connected
with it were found too imperfect to render it navigable at all
seasons of the year hby large vessels. This circumstance,
taken in connexion with the difficulties and dangers incident
to the navigation of the northern part of the Red Sea, may
have induced that monarch to construct the port of Berenice,
on the west coast of that sea, almost under the tropic, from
which the commerce with India was carried on during the
remaining period of the Macedonian dynasty. The over-
land communication across the desert was established by re-
gular caravans from Coptos, on the Nile. There seems rea-
son to conclude that the canal remained shut for the purposes
of navigation into the Red Sea during the Roman domination
in Egypt, as Ptolemy, who wrote in the time of the Emper-
ors Trajan and Adrian, only speaks of that leading from
Cairo towards Belbeys, which had been excavated anew, for
the purpose of irrigation, by Adrian, who gave it the name
of the Trajanis aentis, from that of his adoptive father and
Alfergan, a celebrated Arabian geographer, who lived at
the beginning of the ninth century of our era, says that the
canal of Trajan, (amnis Trajanis,) which passes to the
Babylonof Egypt, (Cairo,) is the same which was called the
"Canal of the Prince of the Faithful :" for Omar, Command-
er of the Faithful, ordained that this canal, which had be-
come choked up with sand, should be re-opened, in order to
transport provisions to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina,
then desolated with famine. And El Magryzy, another
celebrated Arabian geographer and historian, born at Cairo
in the year 1359 of our era, states that this canal was origin-
ally excavated by an ancient King of Egypt for Agar, the
mother of lahmael, when she dwelt in Mecca. It was open-
ied a second time by one of the Greek kings who reigned in
Egypt after the death of Alexander. When the.Most High
revealed Islamism to men, and the conquest of Egypt was
effected by Amron, this General again re-opened it by order
of Omar, Prince of the Faithful, in the year of mortality.
He continued it to the sea of Quolzxam, (the Red Sea,)
whence vessels sailed for the Hedjaz, Yemen, and India."
The same Arabian writer gives a remarkably interesting
and somewhat romantic account of the history of this work
of the Mohammedan conquerors. A desolating famine ex-
isted in Arabia, and Amron had sent corn and other provi-
sions from Egypt by land for the relief of his countrymen.
Omar was profuse in his expressions of gratitude, and sent
for his lieutenant to visit him with some of the principal men
of Egypt. The Commander of the Faithful said unto him:
' Amron, the Most High hath delivered Egypt into the hands
of the Mussulmans. The land abounds in corn and pro-
visions of every sort; I would profit by the occasion God
bath given me to procure abundance for the inhabitants
of the Holy Cities and for all the Mussulmans. We must
dig a canal from the Nile to the sea; it will facilitate the
transportation of provisions to Mecca and Medina, the way
Necos was the Pharoah mentioned in Scripture under
the name of Nechoh, who defeated and slew Josiah, King of
Judah, at the battle of Megiddo, or Magdolam, after which
he gained possession of Jerusalem, and raised Jehoiakim to
the vacant throne,-2 Kings, xiii; 2 Chron, xxxv,
IS 10 long and difficult aetou the wdesrneem. ,Take oui,-
sel, then, with the men thou bast brought with thee out of
Egypt as to the means of executing our design."
Amron lost no time in communicating the proposition of
Omar to the Egyptians, by whom it was very ungraciously
received. We fear," said they, "this project will be a sad
'calamity for the land of Egypt. Try, then, to exaggerate the
'difficulties of the enterprise, in order to persuade the Coin-
mander of the Faithful to desist from his design. Tell him
it is impossible, and cannot be, for we have not the means of
'carrying it into execution."
Amron hastened to report this unfavorable answer to the
Calif, who laughed with scorn as he saw him approach, and
said : I swear by Him who holds thy life in his hand that
I saw thee with thy companions when thou didst communi-
'cats my orders concerning the canal. They were sorely af-
flicted, and answered: Tell the Commander of thte Faithful
it is impossible, and cannot be, for we have not the means of
'carrying it into execution"
Struck with astonishment at what the Calif had said, Am-
ron exclaimed: By God I what thou say'st is true, Com-
s mander of the Faithful. Things have come to pass as thou
hast said." Then Omar said unto him: Fail not to exe-
'cute my commands, and let not the year pass away before
'every thing is fulfilled."
Amron went down into Egypt and collected the necessary
workmen, and dug the canal, which they named the Canal
of the Prince of the Faithful, extending from the Nile to the
sea. The year had not passed away before the commands of
Omar were fulfilled, so that the ships could sail through, sad
carry provisions to Mecca and Medina. Such was the bles-
sing God conferred upon the Holy Cities. After the death
of Omar the rulers of Egypt drained the canal dry. It ceased
to be used, and was choked up with sand.
It is related that the Commander of the Faithful who suc-
ceefed to Omar said to Amron, when he came up out of
Egypt to pay his court to the new Calif, and fond a fainei
again prevailing in Arabia: Of all the provinces of which
G od may dispose for the relief of the faithful inhabitants of
'Hedjaz, the land of Egypt is the most important. Take,
'then, measures for their relief until,God himself shall come
Sto their aid."
Then answered fAmron: What wouldet thou have,
Prince of the Faithfull I well know that before islamism
Swas revealed to men the merchandise of Egypt was brought
'to us in ships. Since we have conquered this land the ca-
nal is choked up and its navigation has been abandoned by
'the merchants. Wouldst thou that I should ordain it to be
re-opened, so that ships laden with corn may again sail for
Hedjaz 'I" And the Calif answered unto him: "Do what
thou hast said."
Leaving the Prince of the Faithful, Amron went to seek
out the great men of Egypt who were Coptse. They cried
out: What dost thou proposeI May God bless the Emir I
Wouldst thou then draw riches from a land which is thine
own, to carry them into Hedjaz, and thus bring ruin on the
land I1 Try to persuade the Calif to abandon this project,
by exaggerating the difficulties which must attend its exe-
cution." When Amron received his audience te take leave
of the Calif, the latter said unto him: Be mindful of the
canal, and fail not to cause it to be re-opened." But," r-.
plied Amron, "it is choked up, and it will cost immense sum#
to repair it." Then the Calif exclaimed, I swear by Him
who holds my soul in his hand I believe thee not, for thou
hast told my design unto the Egyptians, who seek to evade
'Its accomplishment. But punishment shall light upon thee
Sif thou failest to execute my commands."
Amron caused the canal to be dug, and the ships sailed
through, and he died.
Then the Calif wrote to the Emir, his successor; To the
rebel son of a rebel Whilst thou and thy companions have
grown wanton with fatness ye care not for the faithful who
Sperish with want. Hasten to our succor, hasten I" "I
come," said the Emir; "'I send thee, Calif, a caravan of
Sbeasts uf burden laden with provisions, of which the first
will be with thee before the last hath left the land of Egypt.
Thy servant hopes also to find the means of transportation
by sea." But the Emir soon repented having suggested the
last mentioned idea, when it was represented that the strength
of Egypt might be exhausted and transferred to Medina. He
therefore wrote again, that he had reflected on the proposed
transportation by sea and found the obstacles insurmounta-
ble. Whereupon the Calif replied: I have received thy
letter by which thou seekest to elude the performance of the
promise contained in the preceding one. I swear by the
'Almighty that thou shalt execute it, or I will take from thee
'thy Government and give it to another." The Emir saw
that he bad disobeyed the command of the Calif, and imme-
diately set about digging the canal. He conflJed the execu-
tion of it to a Copt, who said to him, Wouldst thou that
'I shouldet conduct thee to a spot where the ships may pass
'and sail to Mecca and Medina ? Exempt m'e and my family
From the payment of tribute." The Emir consented, and
wrote to the Calif, who approved of all that was done.*
According to certain Arabian writers, the Governors of
Egypt afterwards neglected the canal, and it became gradual.
ly choked up with sand, and the navigation terminated at the
"Tail of the Crocodile," in the marshes of Qtlolzoam.
Others represent that, after having been navigable more than
a century, it was filled up by order of the Calif Abo-t.dja-faer
al-Manssofir, when Mohammed ben Abdallab revolted against
him at Medina, in the 145th year of the Hegira, or 762 of the
Christian era. El Beladery relates this transaction as fol-
lows : Mohammed ben Abdallah having revolted against
Abr i-dja 'far al-Mansouir, this Califcaused it to be written
'into Egypt that no more provisions should be sent to the
inhabitants of the two holy cities, for they would soon sub.
'mit when their supplies were cutoff from the side of Egypt.'"
There is no.doubt that the primary object of the Frencit
expedition to Egypt in 1798 was the conquest and ooloniza.
tion of that province of the Ottoman empire, and its ulti.
mate object the dominion and commerce of the East Indies.
The great commercial and political advantages of this aqqui-
sition had already been anticipated by LEIBNITZ, in his me-
moir addressed to Louis XIV. The philosopher had de-
monstrated that "the success of this enterprise would secure
the possession of the Indies, the commerce of Asia, and the
' dominion of the world."f The youthful conqueror of Italy
saw in it an occasion of advancing his own fortunes and of
promoting the interests of France at the expense of those of
England. BONAg'ARTE had no sooner made himself master of
Egypt, by the successful issue of the battle of the Pyramids,
than he turned his attention to those points of the Red Sea
by which the ancient communication with India and Arabia
had been maintained in the time of the Pharaohs, of the Per-
eian and Macedonian Kings, and the Arabian Calife. On
the 34th of December, 1798, he set out from Cairo to cross
the desert to Suez, accompanied by Generals Berthier and
Caffarel, Admiral Gantheaume, MM. Monge, Bertholet, nd
other members of the Institute. After having reconnoitred
the intermediate country, examined the port of Suez, and
given the necessary orders for its repair and fortification, he
set off to the northward in the hope of discovering the vestiges
of the ancient canal which extended in this direction. He soon
fell upon the traces of its dikes, which he followed into the
desert for the distance of five leagues to the point where the
canal entered the Bitter Lakes. On the 3d January, 1799,
BONAPARTE reconnoitred the other exlremiiy of the canal, on
the sdde of the Nile, from Belbeys, proceeding ten leagues in
a northeastern direction through the wady (valley) of Tou-
moylat, where the traces of the ancient canal were aio dis-
The commander-in-chief subsequently charged a distin.,

afterwards inspector of the imperial corps of the ponts et
chausdes, to continue this exploration, with the view of tra-

Determining the practicability of restoring a water communi-
cation between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean, either
directly or through the Nile, For this purpose M. Le Pares,
with the assistance of the military engineers, took during the
years 1800 and 1801 a series of levels between the Red Sea
and the Nile, and between the Red Sea and the Mediterra-
nean; and carefully examined the course of the river, with
its different mouths flowing through the delta into the latter
sea. The results of these observations are given in an admi-
rable memoir, drawn up by M. Le Pare, and inserted in the
first volume of the magnificent work on Egypt published by
the French Government. The memoir is accompanied wilh
hydrographical maps of Lower Egypt and the isthmus, and
with plans of the ports ,of Suez and Alexandria, and synop.
tic tables of the different levellings in the isthmus.
It may be collected from this memoir that the ancient
canal from the Nile to the Red Sea, constructed by the Pha-
raohs, the Kings of Persia, or the Ptolemies, was a deriva-
tion from the most eastern or Pelusiac branch of the Nile,
near the ancient Bubastis, or the modern Basta. Thib
branch was formerly navigable, Alexander the Great hay-

The election in the State of Vermont for Repre-

lature of the State was held last week. There is
some slight doubt as to the election of Governor by
the people, on account of the increased Abolition
vote. Both Houses of the State Legislature, how-
ever, are certainly Whig.

The Whigs of the State of KENTUCKY are about
holding a Convention for nominating a candidate to
be voted for as Governor of that State at the en-
suing election. Among the gentlemen named, all
men of high character, we are glad to see the name
of Hon. WM. J. GRAVES, who retired from service
in Congress two years ago, because it shows the es-
timation in which he is held in his own State. The
Whigs of Oldham county, especially, passed a re-
solution that, having entire confidence in the ability,
industry, energy of character, and firm devotion to
the principles of the Whig party of the Hon. WM.
J. GRAVES, they therefore nominate him as a
suitable individual for the office of Governor; the
fidelity and zeal displayed by him in all the trusts
heretofore committed to him by the people giving
a sufficient guaranty of his capacity and fitness for
the office." The Louisville Whig cordially re-
sponds to th sentiments of this meeting, as we
doubt not would the body of the Whigs of the
State. It is intimated, however, elsewhere, that
Mr. GRAVES dues not desire to be considered a
candidate for the office of Governor; and we infer,
from what we see, that Judge OwSLEy (who was
one of the Representatives of the State in the last
Congress) will be selected as the Whig candidate.

A STEAM ENutNs AND A CLOCK.-The Boston Journal
speaks of a steam engine in the workshop at the Charlestown
Navy Yard as being so uniform that it has been made

during the ten holrs in which the machinery is daily in oper-
ation the clock has seldom varied more than two minutes

teresting items of information as to the navy. The yard at
Charlestown is under the command of Commodore NICOLSON.
The new sloop of war Plymouth will be ready for launching
by the 1st October. The ships of the line Vermont and Vir-
ginia, begun twenty years ago, remain in status quo. The

their crews. The destination of the Potomac has not yet

Consort, and the ship Franklin are also there-the latter to
be razeed. The Ohio receiving ship, Commodore Dowses,
lies at her wharf, and the little brig Apprentice completes the

A CONVICTION.-Antoine Geisler, a German, lately tried
at Riverhead, Long Island, for the murder of Mr. SMIrr
and family, (a small one, consisting of but two or three mem-
bers,) has been pronounced guilty by the jury. The facts
elicited during the trial were, that when arrested there was a
stain of blood on some part of his clothing; that he had on
a pair of boots, proved to have belonged to Mr. Smith s that
on the night or evening of the murder he was seen walking
rapidly away from Smithtown ; that he slept in a barn the next
night, and was arrested in another barn on the next; and,
finally, that his boots were found at some distance from the
house of the murdered man. The jury were unable to
agree at first, but the Judge refused to discharge them until
they had. Sentence has been suspended till next May.
An accident occurred in the mines of the Messrs. Heilner,
near Minersville (Penn.) on Tuesday week, which proved
fatal to one man, and seriously injured another. They were
completely buried under a fall of slate and rock, where they
remained until about eight o'clock in the evening. One of
them was taken out alive, but the other it is thought was
killed almost instantly by the fall.
A Szatous BLUNDeR.-We learn from the Albany Adver-
tiser that in Ithaca a day or two since a Mr. Terrill was sit-
ting on the banks of the inlet, very composedly and innocent-
ly engaged in fishing, dreaming of no danger other than the
usual perils that attend the angler, when his quiet was doom-
ed to a disastrous interruption. A young boy of the village,
who, gun in hand, was on the qui vive, was attracted by the
sight of Mr. Terrell's fur cap, which he declares stoutly he
took for a muskrat, and let fly a full discharge of very size-
able shot, which lodged in the forehead, cheek, arm, and leg
of Mr. T., wounding him very severely. He has ever since
been confined to his room by the injury.
TORN BY A Tieza.-The keeper of the animals in a me-
nagerie, while exhibiting a few days since, in Newcastle,
Mercer county, Pa., entered the den of wild beasts, as was
his wont, and, whilst playing with his savage customers, had
his arm dreadfully torn by the tiger. He was lying on his
back at the time, and, with great presence of mind, he raised
his foot, and with a sudden exertion ot it threw the tiger from
him, and gained his feet; and, awing the brute back by his
manner, retired from the cage, and fainted from the effects of
the wound. It is feared his arm will have to be amputated.

This, now, is philosophy, alias "the movement,"
alias "the march of mind," the quocumrnque nominee
guadet of modern intelligence, the diffusion of know-
ledge, the progress of thought!
Those who disavow all citizenship but that of the
entire earth, aNd pirates and robbers, are much of
one mind. Their expansive attachment is superior
to all casual prejudice. Mr. Wright is full of pa-
triotism ;" but it is for no where. His country is in
the Moon, or in the sphere of Mars or Mercury ; or
among the inhabitants of Jupiter, as the largest bo-
dy of our system, where there is the most elbow-room
for his public spirit; or he loves, perhaps, nothing
less than the entire solar system, including, of course,
satellites, comets, and (hypothetically) the meteors
of the 10th September, if peopled. Nay, if he will
only poise with a tail the wings of the paper kite of
his fancy, why should not his excursive affections flit
beyond "the spacious firmament" itself, and alight,
perchance, in the Milky Way or some of the other
nebulae, as the thickest-settled domicil of souls?
In short, Mr. Wright's is a patriotism of alge-
braic equations, or by addition and subtraction.
He loves the world vastly, but of course wonder-
fully less than what cannot be seen without Sir John
Herschell's great telescope, now at the Cape of
Good Hope. In his merely mundane prepossessions,
he loves the empire of China next to the world,
but less meanwhile than the moon, because the lat-
ter is both bigger and further off. After China, in
his capacious heart, cones the dominion of the
Czar, and so lesser countries, down to his own
birth-place; but by the rule always which Newton or
Kepler discovered-that is, he loves them inversely
as the square ot the space they are at. So that
Mr. Wright's love of country will always be ready
to cry, with Coriolanus's :
tion and gratitude for the zeal, fidelity, and success with which he
has, during so long a period of time, directed the exercises of
the St. Cecelis Society.
Resolved, That in Professor ANDRE we have ever seen a rare
combination of profound knowledge and eminent skill in his pro-
fession, with warm interest in the improvement of his pupils, and
earnest devotion to the prosperity of the Society of which we are
members, and from which we have derived signal advantages.
Resolved, That while Mr. ANDRNa'S professional ability and de-
votion have entitled him to our respect and gratitude, his amiable
qualities have won our affections; so that we have a double loss
to regret: the loss of' our accomplished director and preceptor-
the loss of our esteemed and cherished friend.
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meeting be published
in the National Intelligencer, the Baltimore American, afid the
Freeman's Journal of New York.

This intelligence maytppear astounding, but it is correct;
and I have the names ofeteemed friends and respectable and
wealthy citizens, who havlately returned from Middle Flo-
rida, as vouchers to my staetent. And now I shall offer
an explanation of this mis y and want. Poor farmers,
men without slaves, have choen these rich interior lands for
settlement, and have occupied tvem with large families, ma-
ble themselves to clear quickly laid sufficient for the mainte-
nance of themselves, and consequent sickness attending their
wives and children calling all they efforts at home; aid,
finally, they getting sick, neglecting every thing that they
took such pleasure in cultivating in ihe6Trst instance--leaves
them on a recovery, if ever they recover, n they are. Crops
overgrown with weeds, and lost to all use-, one-half of their
families dead and broken down; di-spirited 'n heart and in
feeling, ready in a moment to damn the country, and sorry in
soul that they were ever connected with it. Let poor men
settle on the east of our Territory, and rich men or man with
slaves in the middle.
The author of this feeble tribute to the memory of an ex-
emplary wife, mother, and friend, saw announced in the In-
telligencer on the 6th instant the death of Mrs. MARUA99T
CARY WARRINOTON, at Berkeley Springs, whither she had
gone for the benefit of her health. He knew her well, and
cannot see her place vacant without an effort to record his
humble opinion of her worth and virtues. Amiable, modest,
and unobtrusive, few but those who were intimately associat-
ed with her could properly appreciate her character. Although
sensible of the charms which society affords, and mixing oc-
casionally in it, she reserved herself chiefly for the joys of
home, and for the enjoyment of her family and friends.
Since it has pleased the Almighty to take her to himself, those
to whom she was so near and dear have the consolation of
knowing she was a practical Christian in the widest sense of
the term. None had a warmer heart for friendship, nor was
there one more devoted to kindness to her neighbors, or to
benevolence to the poor generally. To the latter she was in
truth a friend; for none were too low or too wretched for
her active sympathy and charity. Peace to her gentle spirit !
Long will she be regretted by those who knew iher.
The Faculty of the MEDICAL COLLEGE, assisted by an

College will be visited at their residences. Every species ef

UNT'S MERCHANTS' MAGAZINE AND
COMMERCIAL REVIEW, established July, 1839,
by FasasAx HUNT, Editor and Proprietor.
With the number for July, 1843, commenced the fifth year of
the existence of this standard periodical. It is the only wo. k of
the kind in this or any other country; and although mainly de-
voted to the interests and wants of the commercial and business
community, it has become an indispensable work of reference to
the Statesman and Political Economist throughout the commercial
world. Its contents embrace every subject connected with Com-
merce and Navigation, Agriculture and Msnufac'tures, Currency
and Banking, Fire and Marine Insurance, Mercantile Biography,
Mercantile and Maritime Law, the Laws and Regulations of Trade,
(including important decisions in the different Courts of the Uni-
ted States, Great Britain, &ec )
The Commercial Regulations, Port Charges, Tariffs, Commer-
cial Treaties, etc. of all Nations with which we have commercial
intercourse, with all alterations in the same, are collected and
published from time to time in this Magazine, which is also the
repository for full and authentic Statistical Tables of the Com-
merce, Trade, Navigation, Resources, Population, Banking or
Currency of the United States and the principal countries of the
It has and will continue to be the aim of the Editor and Pro-
prietor of the Merchants' Magazine to avoid every thing of a par-
ty, political, or sectional bias or bearing in the conduct of the
work-opening its pages to the free and fair discussion of antago-
nistic doctrines connected with the great interests of Commerce,
Agriculture, Manufactures, and the Currency.
The Merchants' Magazine is published oui the first of every
month, at five dollars per annum, payable in advance. Apply to
P. TAYLOR, Bookseller, Washiagton, who will have the work
forwarded by mail to any part of the United States.

EWLY INVENTED INKSTAND, just received
NL from the patentee by F. TAYLOR.
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 Public. 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 fullsupply 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 simplicity. an 20
