A NEW DAILY WHIG NEWSPAPER AT THE
SEAT OF GOVERNMENT.
B 8HE undersigned, believing that a cheap daily Whig news-
paper at the seat of Government would prove a valuable
auxiliary to the Whig cause during the approaching Presidential
contest, will publish, on the first Monday in N6cvember next,
a thorough and decided Whig paper, to be entitled THE WHIG
STANDARD, devoted to the principles of that party, as laid down
in the following declaration by HNaRY CLAY :
1. A sound National Currency, regulated by the will and au-
thority of the Nation.
2. An adequate revenue, with fair protection to American
3. Just restraints on the Executive power, embracing further
restriction on the exercise of the veto.
4. A faithful administration of the public domain, with an
equitable distribution of the proceeds of the sales of it among all
5. Au honest and economical administration of the General
Government, leaving public officers perfect freedom of 'bought,
and o'f the right of suffrage, but with suitable restraints against
improper interference in elections.
6. "An amendment of the Constitution limiting the incumbent
of the Presidential office to a single term."
To this annunciation we believe every true and ardent Whig
will favorably respond. The hearts of the Whig army, whose
ranks were unbroken, and whose banners floated unstricken dur-
ing the campaign of 1840, must every where swell with glorious
pride at the memory of the past, and their hopes encouraged by
theirjoyous anticipations of the future. It is true,a nightmare of
treachery now rests upon the energies ol the party; but shall we
not arouse to the importance of the political conflict which is about
to ensue'? There are at this time four Opposition papers at the
seat of Government, each in its way endeavoring to sap the foun-
dations of the Whig party, and blasting the prosperity ofthe coun-
try by the measures they propose. Shall we not rally against the
foes excited by these emissaries, whose corrupt and atrocious mo-
tives are manifest by their early wrangling for spoils which they
never can win '1 We know the response of millions of freemen
will be, "AvY, BALLV !" Already the "hum of either army still
sounds ;" already the general furbishing of arms gives dreadful
note of preparation." Then let ours be a bright and death deal-
ing sword in the conflict. Let us fight for relief from our present
oppressions and oppressors. Let us rally under a leader upon
whose banner is inscribed "LIBERTY, ORDsa, THB CONSTIT--
TION"-whose great political and personal virtues endear him to
every generous heart, and whose patriotism has never been ex-
celled-let us rally for HENRY CLAY, the statesman, the sage,
the friend of the working man, the idol of his country, which for
forty years, next to his God, has had his chief care.
In addition to the thorough Whig course which this paper will
pursue, its readers will be furnished with earliest local iatelli
gene of the city and District, and the general news of the day.
The daily hour of publication will be 4 o'clock in the evening;
and during the session of Congress a synopsis of Its proceedings
will be given up to that hour by able reporters ; thus enabling us
to transmit abroad, through its columns, whatever of interest may
transpire at the earliest hour.
THx WHIG STANDARD will be published daily at 10 cents per
week, payable to the carriers. The paper will be mailed to sub-
scribers out of the District at $5 per annum, payable invariably
in advance; or for a shorter period at the above rate.
As soon as the Presidential campaign shall be fairly opened, a
weekly paper, at One Dollar for the campaign, will be publish-
ed for country circulation.
Allcomomunications by mail mrast be postpaid, or they will re-
main in the post office.

V ALUABLE RAPPAHANNOCK LAND FOR
SSALE.-The subscriber would, at any time within the
next twelve months, sell the estate on which he resides, called
Gaymont, and, conjunctively, about forty-five valuable negroes,
with the growing crops, stocks, and utensils, household furniture,
and appurtenances of every kind. It comprises 2,200 acres ;
about one moiety of which is arable, and the improvement exhi-
bited by a considerable proportion of which strikingly demon-
strates its capacity for a very high degree of fertility from the
use of marl, which abounds in various convenient points. The
balance is in timber and pasture. The buildings of every descrip-
tim are sufficiently large and commodious, the site beautiful, and
the neighborhood scarcely surpassed in Virginia; and, although
not exempt from that class of diseases usually incident to tide-
water, this objection loses much of its force in the consideration
that they are brief in their duration, mild in their character, and
that a refuge, convenient and of a security which the experience
of many years has proved to be almost absolute, is afforded in the
vicinity of the Rappahannock Academy or the town of Port Royal,
between which it is equi distant two and a half miles. The only
condition required of the purchaser will be security for the punc-
tual payment of the interest upon such amount as he may choose
to leave unpaid. Possession given when desired, and the premi-
ses and terms shown, in my absence, by my manager Mr. Jeter,

give to the objection stated only its due prominence, the following
is subjoined. In a period of nearly thirty years no single instance
is recollected of disease at all referable to climate, terminating
fatally either in the family of the subscriber or those of his mana-
gers ; neither amongst the negroes, with the exception of a few
children and two house servants (recently purchased) some twenty
years ago. A house in the town of Port Royal (to which the estate
is adjacent) beautifully situated on the river, long the residence
of different members of his family, whose health has at no time sus-
tained the slightest interruption, would be included with the above.
Few establishments in this county combine more of comfort and
embellishment, or more varied attractions, and such as would only
be relinquished for paramount considerations.

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND-MEDICAL
U DEPARTMENT.-The annual course of Lectures in
the Medical Department of the University of Maryland will com-
mence on the last Monday of October next, and be continued till
the first day of March following.
The course of instruction will consist, as usual, of lectures on
the Theory end Practice of Medicine, on Obstetrics and Medical
Jurisprudence, on Chemistry and Plarmaacv, on Surgery, on Ma-
teria Medica and Therapeutics, and on Special and General Ana-
The well-known advantages of the University of Maryland, its
spacious halls, its unrivalled apparatus, the abundant atnd cheap
materials for the pursuit of practical Anatomy afforded by the city
of Baltimore, and the ample resources of the valuable Museum
belonging to the College, leave nothing to be desired by those
who attach themselves to it as students of the various departments
of medical science.
The lessons if the ProfeEsors of Surgery, of the Practice of
Physic and of Therapeutics, will be illustrated by the daily clini-
cal instruction in the wards of the Baltimore Infirmary This in-
stitution, which is connected with the College and in its immedi-
ate vicinity, presents at all times a number and variety of cases
amply sufficient to afford to students an acquaintance with the
practical application of the principles of Medicine and Sur-
gery. Constant opportunities occur during the session of witness-
ing in it important surgical operations.
The Professors of the several branches, thus provided with all
the necessary and desirable means of aiding students of medicine
in the acquisition of a thorough professional education, will make
every exertion to promote the interest of their pupils, and to pre-
pare them properly for the arduous and momentous duties ot the

ON THE CLIMATE &c. OF FLORIDA.
MOUNT VERNON ARSENAL, (ALA.) AUGUST 8.
In order that there may be a little further and clearer ap-
earance of "Things as they are," justice demands a short
joinder to observations found under Florida No. V." in
late number of the Intelligencer. Truth and right should
revail, and this alone induces me to obtrude myself again
o your notice. It is mentioned, first, for the information
f the Florida panegyrist, that the representations of" Things
s they are" are founded on personal observation and experi-
nce while serving in the peninsula; and far his further in-
)rmation it is here observed, that although it may be "one
f the habits of intermittent fever to return again in other
countries as well as in East Florida," yet "in other coun-
ries" the said returns are far from being so certain or so con-
tant. In the sections remarkable for this form of disease in
he Southern States, seldom is there known a return of inter-
miltent or remittent fever to the same subject more than once
r twice during the same season, though he remain in the
ame locality ; which must be explained either on the ground
hat the cause of fever is less intense and concentrated, or
hat it does not continue in such long and uniform action as
in Florida. Discovering from a recent number of your paper
hat Physician Second" has taken grounds with me, and
hat he promises to avail himself of the statistica" so much
tarped on by A Physician," and which it was not possible
or me, from my position, to get at, I with confidence leave
hat part of the matter in more able hands. The Florida
eulogist says that a great deal of disease prevailed at differ-
ent times and at different places in Florida among the troops
luring seven years of harassing operations" has never been
denied ; and, further, that it had been admitted that "there
vere localities in Florida where disease may prevail," and
cannot divine my object, &c. But were not his admissions,
after all, on this score, extremely limited 1 Where does he
idmit, where does he make the most distant allusion, or who
would dream from reading "Florida No. I." that any military
ost in the whole peninsula had ever been abandoned in con-
iequence of the scourges of disease 7 The facts set forth in
our preceding under this head are stubborn things :" they
cannot be overturned; and are neither to be gotten round,"
nor "gotten over;" they prove that in an almost continuous
line across the entire Territory, from the Atlantic to the
Gulf of Mexico, at the military positions, distanced from
twenty to twenty-five miles from each other, Wacahoota and
Wacasassa perhaps excepted, (though intermittent fever was
not at all unusual at the former,) disease was at different
times rife among the troops; and they further prove that posts
both north and south of this line were equally if not more
afflicted. If he was forgetful of this admission in its proper
place, while discussing the salubrity of the country, why
should we have relied on his memory in portraying to us the
vexatious and horrible annoyance of insects in the continua-
tion of his succeeding series" in praise of Florida 1 and
what right has he to accuse us of" forgetfulness of courtesy"
in saying that he had passed in silence this point 1 I will
now "admit, and have never denied," that bilious fevers of a
high grade are less frequent in Florida than in some localities
of the adjoining Southern States; yet mark the substitute
for them : intermittent and remittent fever of almost ever-
lasting character, congestive, and even yellow fever, by the
admission of A Physician." We omitted in the preceding
communication to say any thing of yellow fever, the plague
of our Southern seaboard : it has prevailed, and will prevail
in the seaports of Florida occasionally, as long as that penin-
sula is above water, and that totally independent of importa-
tion or" contagion:" the contagious nature of the disease is
not generally admitted, though it may become "contingently"
so. A Physician" quotes, with an exclamation point, the
statement that but five or six out of three hundred and
sixty" of the cases reported at Fanning died. True, there
were but five or six who died there, but how many have since
died through the gradual wreck of chronic disease contracted
there would be hard to say; this much, however, may be
said, that of the eight deaths which have occurred at Fort
Morgan, garrisoned by detachments from Florida during the
last twelve months, five were of the character above; two or
three of the same have died at Fort Pickens, Pensacola; and 1
will venture to say that there can scarcely be a post Lamed,
held by Florida troops, where a greater or less number of
deaths during this interval have not resulted from disease
brought from Florida." So your mildest Florida disease at
best substitutes finally a slow, lingering, miserable death, for
the more rapid one of the acute disorders of other regions.
But congestive fever is rapid enough, running, as it does, its
course, when fatal, frequently in three or four days. Of
yellow fever we need not further speak, its fatality being but
too well known. But as a specimen of the accuracy of "A
Physician's" facts I shall merely state positively that Dr. Elwes
died of congestive fever. Having been in his room eighteen
hours before his death, and watched him during this time
minutely, and the preceding history of his disease having
been given me by the attending physician, if his was not a
case of congestive fever, perfect in all its features, then cer-
tainly we never saw one, and we imagine it would be difficult
to find one on record. In regard to Majors Brown and Wil
cox, we did not state on our own authority that they died of
congestive fever, but that they were thus reported to have
died. But the writer actually declares that Major Wilcox
died of "consumption," and in Florida I-in Florida, the
grand panacea for that relentless malady, which hitherto has
held too fast its victim in every other clime I The names of
" a few only" of the officers who died in 1840, 1841, and
1842 were given; several army and naval officers died at St.
Augustine of yellow fever, and several other army officers
died in the interior, whose names are at hand.* We certain-
ly neither intended "to repudiate" the report of the Surgeon
General nor to nullify the "statistics"-did'nt dream of either,
though charged with having the "modesty" of doing both.
But, as a specimen" of the unpretending modesty" ot A
Physician," listen to one sentence of his first paragraph in
No. V : "It requires no great scope of military vision to
perceive that in a war with England the peninsula of East
Florida must become the main battleground, and yet it would
seem that our Government is entirely unconscious of this
fact, if we may judge from the apathy with which it regards
the defences of this the moat important, and at the same time
the most vulnerable, of our frontiers." The fortification ol
this peninsula is a measure of imperious necessity," &c.
What is this but a sweeping generalization," slightly dic-
tatorial, and calling in question the ability of the Govern.
meat to perceive, &c. '1 But N. V. and "the series" abound
in modest" suggestions of this description. In conclusion;
it is my humble yet sincere opinion that the series" alto-
gether, thus far, is decidedly a sweeping" arid soaring af
fair-the salubrity of Florida, its soil, climate, products, fa-
ctlity of Iransportation, and all. We do not ooubt the sin
cerity of the writer; he of course believes what he says; bul
if his various pictures be painted as truly as they are colored
highly, (for they approach in this respect the Oriental ro
mance of Moore, and the dreams themselves of Shelley's
fairy fancy,) then do we no longer live in a "nmatter-of.face
age," where man toils in pain for an uncertain subsistence
but at the southern extremity of the United States there isa
"land flowing with milk and honey," where the rich fruit,
of old Earth spring spontaneously to his idle hand, and wherm
he may spend a life revel in joyful forgetfulness';"t In short
Florida is the blooming modern Arcadia," the veritablh
' Elysium," and teeming "Promised Land," which in vail
may be sought elsewhere in the Eastern or Western hemis
This was intended as our halt ; but it just occurs to ui
that A Physician" intends blotting out the "slanders'
which have been heaped on Florida by those who have sue
ended over her a dark cloud uf insects, and, by way of an
ticipating him, as an offset, I offer the following attempt at i
parody on the beginning of the "Bride of Abydos," fur
nished by a friend of mine during the height of the mos
quito season in Florida in 1842:
"Know ye the land" where the marsh and lagoon
Are darkened with insects that swarm "in this clime 1
Where the mosquitoes rage" at all times of the moon,
Now melts into sorrow, now maddens to crime V"
Know ye the land" of the cypress and vine,
Where the moss darkly hangs, tho' the beams ever shine
Where the light wings of Zephyr," full charged witi
Of the febric malaria, bring one his death doom I
Where the lemon and orange are fairest of fruit,"
But the mosquito's voice never, never is mute:"
Where the tints of the eaith and the hues of the sky"
Might look tolerable but for a venomous fly
That hums at your ear, and sticks in your eye 1
Where" the ants and cockroaches all round give the sig
That all save the land and what's in it'a divine 1"
ris the Florida clime, 'tis the land of the sun "-
Who stays in it long, God knows is undone!
Oh I will be the accents and mournful to tell,
But this Florida clime is the next place to H-I.

Hitchcock, LL. D., Judge of the New Haven City Court; and
Isaac H. Townsend, Esq Attorney and Counsellor at Law.
There are two courses of instruction and study in the School,
one called the professional course, and the other called the gene-
ral course. The object of the professional course is to give a
thorough legal education to those gentlemen who propose to enter
the profession of law. The design of the gene al course is, more
particularly, to communicate appropriate information to those who
wish to attend to jurisprudence as a branch of liberal knowledge.
A course with special refeenee to mercantile law is introduced
as often as any class requests it.
1. THi PROFESSIONAL CotUasa.
The students are required to peruse the most important ele-
mentary treea ises, and are daily examined on thie author they are
reading, and receive at the same time explanations and illustra-
tions aol the subjects they are studying. The School is divided
into three reading classes. Each class is daily employed upon a
lesson in the Class Book, and is separately examined, and every
student can read in one or more of the three classes, as he finds
himself able and inclined to perform the requisite labor. Courses
of Lectures are delivered by the Instructors on all the titles and
subjects of Common and Statute Law, and of Equity. Three ex-
ercises, consisting of Lectures or Examinations of one hour each,
Share daily given by the Inetructois, and at all of them each of the
pupils is permitted to attend. A moot court is held once a week,
or oftener, which employs the students in drawing pleadings, and
investigating and arguing questions of law. The students are
called upon, from time to time, to draw declarations, pleadings,
contracts, and other instruments connected with the practice of
law, and to do the most important duties of an attorney's clerk.
They are occasionally required to write disquisitions on some
Topic of law, and collect the authorities to support their opinions.
The students are furnished with the use of the elementary books.
and have access at all times to the College libraries, and to a Law
library, comprising every important work, both ancient and mod-
Sern. The Law library contains the Revised Statutes, the Reports,
and the D geas of all the States in the Union
The course of study occupies two years, allowing eight weeks'
vacation each year. The months of May and September are al-
Slotted for vacations. There is also a recess of about two weeks
Near tie first of January in each year. The terms for tuition,
with constant use of text books and ordinary use of the library,
are as follows, payable in advance : For the whole course of two
t years, one hundred and fifty dollars. For one year, eighty dol-
lars. For less than one year, ten dollars a month. For more
f than one year, and less than two years, .seven dollars a month
after the first year.
B The degree of Bachelor ef Liawa will be conferred by the
IPresident and Fellows on liberally educated students who have
been members of the Department eighteen months, and have
Complied with the regulations of the insitution and passed a sat-

by General ToaNEIL, the Minister of War, to convey to the
United States for the National Institute three boxes of mine-

wards. I have been curious to ascertain the public sentiment
in a society so devoted to the fine arts and so well informed
on all questions pertaining to them. There is a general con-
currence in pronouncing strong encomiums. It is true there
are those who censure particular parts, some in the concep-
tion, some in the details, and some in the execution; but even
all these award the meed of eminent success. This work
places the artist, by general consent, among the first sculp-
tors of Italy.
He has selected for his subject the landing of Columbus.
The great navigator is supposed to have just touched the
shore. His person is lofty and imposing; his countenance
has the impress of Nature's nobility. The visage is modelled
with much width, and the forehead has great capacity. He
stands, his helmet removed and placed on a rock by his side,
his hbbeathid sword cast upon the earth, and with his right
hand raised he presents a globe. His left rests, with the back
turned, upon his hip, the arm being a-kimbow. The right
foot is advanced and firmly placed upon the soil, whilst the
left, as in the act of walking, scarcely touches the earth.
His costume is that of a Spanish cavalier of the fifteenth
century, with cuirass and armlets, a falling mantle on his
shoulders, full breeches to the knee, and thin silk stockings so
fitted to the leg that it is nearly as visible as if naked. Near
him stands a lovely Indian woman, who seems to have been
reposing upon the earth when startled by this astounding ap-
p rition. She has just sprung up, and now she stands in the
attitude to fly, yet she turns her head, and regards with a
curious and fixed gaze the new comer.
The countenance is truly Indian. He who seeks here the
regular features of Grecian art will be disappointed. Phidias
never conceived of such a face. The cheek bones are promi.
nant, the eyes are deeply set, the forehead low, the chin
rounded; yet neither of these characteristics is extreme. It
is a face striking and beautiful in its kind.
In the eager and concentrated gaze with which she looks
up n the wonderful visiter there is an expression of sternness
and profound astonishment. There is also in the attitude
something which suggests the stealthy and almost serpent.
like movement of the Indian race. The slight drapery with
which she was covered seems, in the hurry in which she has
sprang up, to have slipped down from its place, discovering to
the view the lovely person of this maiden of the forest. At
the same time it has so fallen that modesty is not shocked,
and its ends, reaching the earth, form an ingenious and beau-
tiful support to the statue. If the visage is not modelled ac-
cording to the rules of Grecian art, still the person and limbs,
Indian as this figure is, may well compare with the choice
models of Grecian and Italian statuary.
It may be asked what constitutes these statues a group I
What reference have they the one to the other 1 It is not
necessary that states should be materially connected, that
is, united to the same block of marble, to make a group. The
celebrated family of Niobe, which is still seen at Florence,
presents an example of the representation of an idea by means
of a number of separate figures. These two statues repre-
sent a scene, and one of the most interesting in history. 1
have explained the appearance of Columbus and the manner
of the maiden. But whilst she looks on him with all those
feelings strongly depicted in her countenance which the cir-
cumstances were calculated to produce, he regards her not.
Absorbed in the enthusiasm of the moment, and occupied
with the feelings and reflections of his peculiar position, she
escapes his observation. He has the triumphant step, the
elevated air, the look of proud satisfaction, appropriate to one
who has just succeeded in discovering a new world. He has
struggled for many long years against adverse fortune; he
has found the world incredulous as to his theory; he has been
believed an enthusiast and a monomaniac; has been the sub-
ject of ridicule and contempt; has buffeted the winds and the
waves of an unknown sea; and has had to contend against
that worst of obstacles, a mutinous crew, destitute of confi-
dence ; and now he has surmounted all, and has found the
object of his highest hopes. It is a moment of intense excite-
ment. His position is such as was never before occupied by
man. In such a situation the movements are not regulated
by ordinary laws. The appearance, then, and attitude of the
statue, cannot be deemed forced nor inconsistent with Na-
tore. There is nothing of the" barocco." Archimedes for-
got his nudity when he emerged from his bath and ran
through the streets exclaiming, Eureka I Eureka!" He
had solved an important problem, and made a discovery of
great interest. He was now able to tell King Hiero how
much gold there was in his crown. But here was a world
discovered. And he who was but just now esteemed a des.
pirate adventurer, a wild theorist, a man of disordered intel.
lect, stands forth a hero, with fame as enduring as the world
itself which he had discovered.
It is perceived that these statues are historical and allegori.
cal. Here is not only Columbus landing upon America, (for
the island which he first visited is considered as belonging to
the continent,) but here are appendages representing ideas
intimately connected with and illustrative of this fact. By
the globe which he bears in his hand he says to mankind, I
present you the entire world. You have known but half.
To Earope, Asia, and Africa, I bring this western hemis-
phere. And to America the eastern world. My proposition
is now verified; behold the result." His sheathed sword
thrown upon the soil is a proclamation to the Aborigines of
S peace. This mode of representation cannot be fairly oh.
jeered to. The Belgians have recently erected an equestrian
statue to Godfrey Bouillon, in which he is represented as
huldming the blade of his sword and presenting the hilt, which
is in the foInam of a ross. Thus is at once awakened the idea
of the Crusades, the course of the great leader, and his illu.s-
trious conflicts to extend the religion of the Crows. Canova
b! alo given as a Napoleon with a globe in his hand anda
victory over it; thus is presented the conqueror of the world.
But what means the Indian 2 She is the representative
of her race, and her appearance may suggest to the mind the
first impressions produced on the Aborigines by the landing
of Columbus, and their mode of reception.
PraSICO belongs to no particular school of sculpture; but
he imitates Nature with a boldness and freedom which char-
acterize many of the painters of the Venetian school. It is
here that he shows the genius of the artist and his own sys-
tem, which consists in having none. The little details of his
work are executed with a laborious minuteness and an exact
precision which are peculiar and truly remarkable. Although
the statues are colossal, and intended to be viewed at a dis-
tance, yet they do not suffer from the closest scrutiny. I have
said before that the journals of this city have had many ar-
ticles on the subject of these statues. They lament that
their own country should be deprived of these beautiful pro-
ductions of one of her sons, but at the same lime they felici-
tate themselves that Italy enjoys the honor of carrying the
fine arts into those distant regions ;" that an Ialian di--
covered our continent; that an Italian gave to it his name;
that an Italian has written one of the best histories of our
Revolution ; that an Italian now decorates our Capitol wilh
sculpture wrought under an Italian sun.

PENSACOLA, SEPTEMBERt8, 1843.
Si : I observed to-day an appearance of the clouds so very
remarkable that I offer a description of it to the considera-
tion of the Institute.
About 2 o'clock P. M. my attention was attracted towards
the northeast portion of the heavens by the low rumbling of
thunder, and by what seemed to be quick and repeated flashes
of lightning. I saw two lirge piles of cumuli, one above the
other, the lower having generally the form of a cone, with
its base near the horizon, and the other of an inverted cone,
with its base some 30 deg. from the z-nith. Their apices
were lost in each other, leaving the figure formed by the
whole very like an hour glass. While viewing this some-
what uncommon and very beautiful fleecy mass, I distinctly
perceived two several streams of lightning shooting from the
upper cloud, net far above the junction, into the open specs
of clear sky to the right or southward. Immediately after, I
saw a jet or current of vapor passing from the upper to the
lower cloud, in a direction nearly parallel with the axes of
the cones. I may liken the appearance of this jet to the
stream from the pipe of a fire-engine, except that, instead of
widening from the orifice of the pipe, it seemed to converge
and move onward with increasing velocity. I watched all
this closely till it met the othef cloud, when quite a commo-
tion ensued upon the contact-the jet or streak of vapor re-
mained, but widened and spread very rapidly, till at length
the whole space between it and the two clouds was filled
with a vapory water-colored mass, and then it soon assumed
the general appearance of the cloud itself. While yet watch-
ing these changes a new jet shot out from a more distant part
of the upper cloud, and after that others, the two principal
clouds or cumuli meanwhile manifestly increasing and chang-
ing their appearance into that of nimbi or rain-clouds, so thai
it seemed very probable we should soon have a shower. Af
ter growing quite dark in shade and losing pretty much all
of their conical shape, they began to wane, partly changing
into cumulo strati, and finally dissolving altogether without
rain. No more thunder was heard, and the sky resumed itF
clearness as before-there being only a low line of cumulo-
strati along the horiza lto the northward and eastward.
Now, to understand well the above rapid formation and
dissolution of cloud, it may be proper to say a word upon the
prevalence of winds here at this season. As in the Medi-
terranean and the West India islands a regular sea-breeze
sets in about 9 o'clock A. M. and blows from the south or
southwest right in from the Gulf till sundown, when it gene-
rally dies away, and the land or north and northeast wind
blows all night. The passage of clouds high over head from
the northward to the southward during the strongest of the
sea wind during the day would seem to indicate the constant,
existence of a counter-current. Indeed, nearly all the thun-
der-gusts in summer arise from the northern quarter of the
heavens, and progress southerly till they overcome the breez-,
when a northerly squall and rain follows.
May not the conical form of the clouds to-day have been
caused by the meeting of the two winds, thus producing thl
circular or whirling motion, within the limits of which the
clouds were formed, and the prevalence of one, probably the
south wind, as the cloud descended, driving all back before
it, and dispelling or dissolving the clouds'? But, if so, whence
the double-coned shape 1 And the passages of electric fluid
from the one to the other, or rather from the upper cloud
into space, had that any agency in producing the jets or
streams of vapor from the upper to the lower cloud 2
If the above be worthy of the consideration of the proper
department of the Institute I shall receive with much plea-
sure their views and conclusions in relation to it.
I remain, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
GEORGE E. CHASE.

TEa ATMOSPHERIC RiAILWAY.-According to a Dublin pa-
per, quoted in the London Mechanics' Magazine, a prelimi-
nary experiment was made in August, upon the Dalkey line,
which answered the expectations of the patentees, Clegg and
Samuda, as well as of all concerned in introducing this im-
portant national project into Ireland.
At five o'clock the leviathan air pump was put in operation,
and in sixty strokes an altitude of twenty inches was indi-
cated by the barometer, which shortly afterwards reached
twenty-two inches and one-tenth. This was the realization
of the most sanguine expectations, and left, it was thought,
no room for doubt as to the completeness and power of the
machinery, and its capability of producing sufficient vacuum.
Each inch of altitude in the barometer-gauge indicates a
propelling power equal to nine tons on a level road, at a velo-
city dependent on the speed of the air pump piston. The
Dalkey engine working twenty-four double strokes per mi-
nute, the trains may be moved at upwards of fifty miles per
The passenger carriages being attached to the piston, with
the engine working at half power, and the height of the mer-
cury in the barometer varying from eleven to fourteen inches,
the train moved at the rate of a mile in three minutes, and
accomplished a distance of one mile and a quarter in four
minutes, although retarded at starting and at the terminus by
the breaks on the wheels.
The result of the experiment was regarded as a triumph
to Messrs. Pim and Bergin over the principles and erroneous
calculations of Professor Barlow and Sir Frederick Smith,
the Inspector General of Railways under the Board of Trade.
The engine is one hundred horse power, with an air pump,
double stroke, diameter sixty-seven inches; the diameter of
the open pipe is fifteen inches. The open pipe will be nine
thousand two hundred feet in length, and the close pipe up-
wards of twelve hundred.
The station at Dalkey is seventy-six feet higher than that
at Kingstown-one in fifty seven, or ninety-two feet per
mile, being the greatest aogle of elevation ; the main ascent
is one in a hundred and fifteen feet, or ftrty-six feet per mile.
It is computed that the train will descend from Dalkey, by
its own gravity, at the rate of from thirty to thirty-five miles
per hour. The sharpest curve is only five hundred end forty-
seven feet radius --Evening Post.
AOaICULTCBA, SuRvEY OF Naw YoaK.-Dr. EtMeONs, who
has heretofore been engaged in the geological survey of New
York, is now employed, under the act of last winter, in ma-
king an agricultural survey. He proposes, if possible, visiting
each county before the close of the season, for the purpose of
making such observations in this department of the survey as
shall serve to promote the great object of agriculture. The
collection of soils forms a part of his duties. Observations
no drainage; the influence of slope and exposure on late and
early vegetation ; the extent of drift ; the distribution of the
mineral manures, as peat, marl, limestone, &c, and the ex-
tent of the different agricultural divisions or regions, are
prominent objects of the survey. This is an important move-
ment, and one which will contribute greatly to develop the
resources of the State. The example of New York will doubt-
less be followed by other States, The agricultural survey of
England ordered by Wm. Pitt in 1795 laid the foundation of
her present supremacy in farming, and added much to her
strength and wealth, by turning labor and capital more to the
productions of the soil.-Rochlester Democrat.
NEw MtcRoscopE-A new microscope, constructed by
Mr. Cary, the optician, for the Polytechnic Institution, was
lately privately exhibited preparatory to its being added to
the other attractions of that popular establishment. The ef-
fects are produced by the agency of the oxy hydrogen jet
playing on a piece of quicklime, familiarly known as the
Drummond light. The microscope consists of six powers,
ranging from 130 times to 74,000,000 times. The second
power magnifies the wings of the locust to twenty-seven feet
in length. The fourth power magnifies the sting of the bee
twenty-seven feet. By the sixth power the eye of the fly,
which is said to contain seven hundred and fifty lenses, is so
magnified that each less appears to be fourteen inches in
diameter. The human hair is magnified eighteen inches in
diameter, or four feet six inches in circumference. Nothing
cau exceed the beauty with which insect architecture is de-
veloped under the influence of this enormous power. The
condensing lens is nine pan4d -half inches in diameter.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1843.
THE MARYLAND ELECTION.
We had occasion yesterday to offer a few remarks
on the importance of the interests involved in the
issue of the election to be held to-day in Maryland.
As this paper will reach the hands of a large por-
tion of our readers in that State before the day is
half spent, it may not be yet too late, nor occupy
altogether in vain the space requisite, for a few ad-
ditional suggestions to our political friends in the
We say, then, to the Whigs of Maryland that they
have this day the opportunity to prove to their coun-
trymen that they are the true heirs of the Whigs of
the Revolution, and willing and ready to defend aind
uphold the institutions and the principles which
their sires bequeathed them. To have achieved by
the Revolution an independence of the Old World
would have been a triumph of comparatively little
value had it not been succeeded by the establish-
ment of a Government for the whole country, which,
whilst it protects instead of encroaching on the
rights of the States, has consolidated the Union,
giving body and form to the republican principle,
providing for defence against danger from abroad,
and for the maintenance at home of all those rights,
political, social, and religious, the proper regulation
and guardianship of which are the true ends and
purposes of all free government.
To secure the enjoyment of all the blessings
which flow from such a Government properly ad-
ministered, however, it is necessary that a constant
vigilance be exercised over public agents by the
People, who are the source of all political power,
and whose fault alone it will be if this great scheme
of government fails to accomplish, always or at any
time, these great objects.
High and important and consequential, then, is
the duty which devolves upon every citizen, in the
periodical exercise of the right of suffrage, so to
cast his vote as to contribute all in his power to-
wards placing the administration of the Government
in hands both able and willing to labor honestly and
earnestly for the promotion of the general welfare.
To our friends in Maryland we suppose there is
no occasion for us to add that the eyes of all Whigs
every where are intently fixed upon them, anxious
as to the result of the pending election in their
State, not less, as we suggested yesterday, because
of its possible effect upon the politics of the Union
than because of its transcendent consequence to the
interests of the State which are deeply involved in it.
TENNssEE.-Monday last was the regular day
for the meeting of the General Assembly of Ten-
nessee, when its members no doubt duly entered
upon their labors. The present session is regarded
by the citizens of the State as one of more than
ordinary importance, as, besides thie election of two
Senators to Congress, there are several of the most
important State officers to be chosen, and the seat
of the State Government is to be permanently
MR. WEBSTER.-The New Bedford Bulletin says
that it understands from good authority that the Hon.
DANIEL WEBSTER will address the Whigs of Ply-
mouth, Massachusetts, at their approaching County
Convention. It adds that Mr. WEBSTER has ex-
plicitly declared that if his services were at all de-
sirable in the coming State campaign, they might
at any time and in any way be commanded. If
this be true, and we have no doubt it is, we have a
tolerably decisive indication of the quarter to which
he intends to go." His Rochester speech, so far
as it related to politics at all, was filled with sound
Whig doctrine, and will be responded to by the
friends of the American Tariff throughout the coun-
CuBA.-Havana papers of the 16th ultimo official-
ly announce the appointment of Don LEOPOLDO
O'DONNELL as Governor General of the Island of
Cuba, in the place of Don GERONINO VALDES, re-
moved ; in consequence of which Gov. VALDES
had given up the command to General ULLOA, of
the Navy Department, to be exercised by hint until
the arrival of the new Governor, whio was expected
to leave Cadiz in a Spanish frigate about the mid-
dle of August. The Superintendent of the Finan-
cial Department has also been removed. These
changes are, of course, a consequence of the success
of the anti-Espartero party in Spain.
COMMANDER MACKENZIE.-Mr. NoRRIs, of Bal-
timore, who officiated as Judge Advocate on the
trial of Commander MACKENZtE, states, in reply to
a letter addressed to him on the subject, that each
member of the Court Martial which tried this case
gave his opinion or vote in writing. There was no
formal motion made that the word honorably"
should be inserted before acquitted ;" but on ex-
amining the votes nine bore the word "acquitted,"
and three honorably acquitted."
It is a fact, which deserves to be noted, that the
first protective duty ever imposed by our Govern-
ment was in favor of raw cotton, for the especial
benefit of South Carolina. That duty is three cents
per pound, or, on an average, forty per cent., and
it operates to the prohibition of the foreign produc-
tion from our ports. Repeal it, and the cotton of
South America, and perhaps of India, would com-
pete with the home production in our own markets.
GaosOIA COTTON CaoP.-The Savannah R publican of
the 27th ultimo says that letters from various parts of the
State represent the cotton crop as in a very flourishing condi-
tion. The Editor adds:
The fine dry and hot weather is maturing the plant very
rapidly, and there is now every prospect of there being as
much cotton made in this State as was ever made in any year
previous to the last; and some writers think it will be even as
large as last season, provided the frost keeps off till the 20th
The stock of flour in the New York city market is esti-
Smated at 200,000 barrels, against 50,000 barrels at this time
The quantity of flour received at Albany, by way of the
Erie Canal, from the commencement of navigation this sea-
son up tothe 22d ultimo, was 1,139,357 barrels; and of wheat
457,477 bushels. There were received at Albany, by the
canal, during the week ending on the 22J of September
7j2,636 barrels of flour and 49,960 bushels of wheat.
The receipts of tolls on all the canals of the State of New
York this season, up to the 22d ult., amounted to $1,347,072.
HoesRIBL MURDERS.-Four Murders and Three Sui-
cides-A Young Lady Assassinated.-While performing the
duty of public journalists, by giving a faithful record of pass-
ing events, we cannot notice the following occurrences with-
out expressing our alarm at the progress of crime. It is well
calculated to arouse the moat painful reflections, and to attract
the attention of our statesmen and philosophers to a careful
investigation, for the development of some means calculated
to prevent these sanguinary acts.
The above paragraph is copied from the New York Son,
which then proceeds to give the particulars of the marders
and suicides referred to,
ME. ADAMS AT NEW BEDFORD.
We have already briefly noticed the visit and re-
ception at New Bedford of the venerable Ex-Pre-
sident ADAMS. The Mercury furnishes, in addi-
tion, the following report of the remarks addressed
by him to the citizens who assembled at the Town
Hall to exchange civilities with him on the day sub-
sequent to his arrival. The Mercury says that
owing to the crowded state of the Hall the re-
marks of the orator were frequently inaudible to
the reporter, and therefore many passages are ne-
cessarily wholly omitted, while the rhetorical force
and beauty of the whole is of course obscured :"
Mr. ADAMS said if it should happen, in a few words in
which it would be his happiness to address the numerous
assemblage before him, in answer to that overwhelming is-
sue from the heart-which he had no doubt it was-of the
gentleman who had thus addressed him on their behalf-if
what he should say should be incoherent, wild, or extrava-
gant, he hoped they would excuse him. Recently, within
the lasi three months, accident had led him out of his be-
loved State, the State of his nativity, to the interior of a
neighboring Slate, which, since the settlement of the coon
try, had ever held the first rank in commercial enterprise and
aetivily, and had become known, by the consent of all, as
the Empire State. He went there, he said, in the pursuit of
health, and in the discharge of his duty in some matters of
personal and family concern; and once being there, and be
holding for the first time her unexampled prosperity atid
wealth, he was led on to the neighboring province of Great
Britain. There, said Mr. A., as in my whole course, to my
utter surprise, and I may truly add, to my great cnsterna.
lion, I found myself received in open arms by immense as-
semblages, and amid the cordial greetings of the people : in
a word, said Mr. A., as I have been received here to day.
A great warrior of antiquity, who rose from obscurity to the
command of armies, on receiving the united homage of the
people, had said he was astonished to find himself so great a
man. His greatness had been achieved from feats of arms,
battles won. Feats of arms, said Mr. A., have never been
mine, and I could not but inquire what it was that produced
this effect in my favor, until I found I owed the kind expres-
sions of the people to my efforts in the preservation of the
liberties of my country. In the course of that tour I saw
what the people of that State had accomplished since the
Revolulisn ; a nation created out of the wilds of the forest,
reclaimed by the hand of man, mostly by the hands of
"Fellow citizens, I have been long in the service of my
country. In approaching the age of fourscore, if there can
be delight in any thing to a man, it must be in contemplating
the prosperity of his country, and in the consciousness that
he had contributed his mite to that prosperity. Mr. A. said
he had heard of a declaration made by one of his own coun-
trymen, distinguished for his talent and eloquence, who was
once an inhabitant of this town, now recently returned from
Europe, that in his intercourse abroad with men of talent
and deep thinking anid stores of learning, they had expressed
the sentiment that the experiment of republican government
in this country was a failure. A failure I The experiment
of republican government in America a failure I am not
so confident, said Mr. A., that they are correct in this con.
clusion. I am not certain that he has made this declaration,
but it is so said. There are three things which must concur
in the success of a Government. There must be, in the first
place, the action of Providence ; there must be the action of
the Government; and there must be the action of man-of
the people. Now, if the experiment of republican govern-
ment has been in this country a failure, to what is it to be
attributed 2 Is it to God I God forbid I Shall it be said
that God has not done to us his partI No no I never was
a people more favored on the face of the earth since the crea.
tion. But that favor has not always been exhibited in the
form of prosperity. Providence deals not so with men. Yet
the blessing of God is always upon man beyond his deserts
We have had desolating disease, cruel wars, unfortunate
seasons-we have had many ills to contend with-but with
all these blessing has never failed-it never will fail.
"I came here (said Mr. A.) not to speak to you of politics
but if the question were asked, Had Government done its
duty 2' I am very much afraid we should all answer No.,
But if I were asked by this assembly wherein Government
had not done its duty, I think perhaps one portion would say
the failure had arisen from this, that, or the other measure,
and by the other portion that it was owing to the very same
measure that it had not failed: like the old painter who
painted a pair of boots, and when his friends came to see the
picture, he desired every person to mark that which he con-
sidered a beauty and excellence. The beot was covered all
over with marks. The next day he desired his visitors to
mark all that they considered as blemishes arid defects. Again
the boot was covered with marks, and in the very same places
We should all agree, then, that the fault in the failure of ihe
experiment-if it is a failure-is in the Government. Now,
how far are the people responsible, right or wrong 2
I was here eight years ago, (said Mr. A.,) and then this
town of yours had not half the population that it has now-
nor half the wealth that it has since drawn from the depths
of the ocean. I say, then, that the experiment of a Repub
lican Government has not failed. Let the European men of
learning who have concluded that the experiment of a Re-
publican Government in this country is a failure, let them
show the spot on the face of the earth which has failed so
successfully. I have witnessed it heretofore-I now witness it.
"Mr. A. also referred, in terms of glowing satisfaction
aad with cordial thanks, to the generous estimation with
which his countrymen khad regarded his past labors. They
have given to me (-aid Mr. A.) more than justice-more
than I deserved. If in the last threescore years it had been
his good fortune to be called to devote almost the entire portion
of that period to the service of his country, he was more than
happy in the consciousness that he had faithfully devoted that
service to the maintenance of her liberties.
But our liberties have been jeoparded (continued Mr.
A.) from a source from which we ought not to have expected
daniger-from within ourselves. When I saw opposition to
the liberties of our country coming from within our own
bowels, I felt called to array my feeble powers in the defence
of her free institutions. In the course of the last seven or
eight years the critical periods of that controversy have de-
volved twice on me, and I called upon the people to uphold me,
It is gratifying to me to say this to you, because I have no
doubt it will be gratifying to you to hear it-that this is the
cause that I have now been here to see you. Wherever 1
have gone, and wherever I have been most warmly received,
I have found that it was because of my defence of the liber-
ties of the people, and of the right of petition. Your right
of petition is now, to a very great extent, suppressed by the
arbitrary rules of the House of Representatives. It was
restored, it is true, for a few days at the commencement of the
last session, but then it was negotiated away again. I will
not (said Mr. A.) pursue this subject, because I know thai
among you it would be only idle and useless. Upon this
question I have found among you but one sentiment.
"'Fellow.citizens, 1 have been unintentionally drawn initc
these considerations, relating to a subject which absorbs my
own soul, in returning you my most hearty thanks, and in
imploring the blessing of God upon you and your posterity
hereafter for the kind reception which you have given me
upon the present occasion.
When Mr. ADAMS had concluded his remarks an oppor.
tsnity was afforded to those present to welcome him by the
hand, which was fully and heartily improved."
PoTATOrs.-The town of Monididier, in the Department
of Somme, in France, is about erecting a bronze statue in
honor of the philosopher and philanthropist, Parmentier, whc
introducedil into France the culture of potatoes. It was tc
him, and in reference to his introduction of the potato, that
Louis XVI. once said: '" France will one day thank you for
having found bread for her poor."
The subscription for the statue ia headed by Louis Phi-
lippe, and is circulating throughout France.
This reference to Parmentier recalls the name of the cele.
brated American, Benjamin Thompson, (better known as
Count Rumford,) who introduced the potato into Bavaria to

Lose this day loitering, 'twill be the same story
To-morrow, and the next more dilatory;
The indecision brings its own delays,
And days are lost lamenting o'er lost days.
Are you in earnest 1 Seize this very minute;
What you can do, or dream you can, begin it:
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it I
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated;
Begin it, and the work will be completed.
ALABIMA.-This State continues to meet her pecuniary
engagements with praiseworthy promptitude. The New
York papers contain an advertisement which shows that,
with a view to accommodate the United States holders of
Alabama sterling bonds, the State agent proposes to antici-
pate the payment of the interest coupons due in London next
Holders who wish to avoid the risk and delay of transmit-
ting the coupons to England may obtain the money for them
at the Merchants' Bank in the city of New York, if applies-
tion be made prior to the first of November next.
The coupons on Alabama dollar bonds, due in New York
in November next, will also be paid on their presentation at
the Merchants' Bank, less interest at the current rate.

Onto RAILROADsi-It is expected that the Little Miami
Railroad will be completed to Deerfield, within four miles ot
Lobanon. by the lt of Dicember next. Sixteen miles of the
Mad Rivwr and Lake Erie Road are to be put under contract
on the 26 h instant, notice of which has been published for
some weeks past. Both of these w-uks will be pushed
to completion as fast as circumstances will admit, Of
their itrp ertance to the sections of country through which
they pass it is unnecessary to speak. Every man can ap-
preciate the advantages of a direct communication between
the Lake end the Ohio river, which will secure a choice of
either a Northern or Southern market. When these two
great works shall have been completed, this delightful region
of country will be second to none in the world. It will pre-
sent an aspect so inviting as to induce men of enterprise to
locate in it who will engage in the various pursLits that never
fail to in'use lihf and animation into till the ramifications ot
society. In adldiinri to this, it will be tOe great thoroughfare
of travel between Cincinnati and the Likes. This distance
can easily he run by the cars int sixteen hours, andti passengers
wi!l thus be enabled to reach New York or Boston in about
three days. We look upon this work as one of the most
important enterprises of the day. It will enable the New
York and Bston lines of communication, to compete success
fully with the groat Sauthern route, through Wheeling and
Cumberland, to Baltimore.
The Mad Rivor and Lake Erie Railroad is completed from
Sandusky to Tiffin, a distance of thirty-eight miles. The

TEt MURDER OFP Ml-e HANSON.-Our readers will remem-

days ago. And'w F. Howard, the murderer, has confessed hie
crime, and states that, finding Miss Hanson alone in her
house, he tried to get the money, which he knew she and her
brother had in their possession, without committing violence
upon her. As she refused, however, to give up more than a
small sum, heshot her deliberately through the neck, causing
death instantaneously. He then searched her house, but
coulil only fid about $30, Miss Hanson's trunk containing
nearly $1 000 being concealed so as t- escape his observation.
The murderer has been committed to Dover jail, with his
brother, who is detained as a witness.

VALUABLE FARM AND WOODLANDS AT
PRIVATE SALEnear WASHINGTON CITY.
This estate is situated about two and a half miles from the Cen-
tre Market, northwest of the Columbian College, adjoining the
lands of Dr. Worthington and Messrs. Holmead and Pearce. It
contains 300 acres, from 80 to one hundred in cultivation, chiefly
set in timothy, orchard-grass, and clover, and nearly 200 acres
wood, considerable portions of which are heavily timbered. The
uncleared lands are of excellent quality, and the cultivated por-
tions have been found to be kind and easily improved, lime,
ashes, and plaster having been abundantly applied by my father,
the recent owner, with the finest effect. By a recent survey
these lands have been divided into the following portions:
Lot 1, containing about 128 acres, with the improvements, con-
sisting of a dwelling-house, barn, stable, manager's house, negro
quarters, and other out-buildings, all erected within the last two
years. Thie dwelling ie in the cottage style, having piazzas on
thrle sides, forming a square of fifty feet. It has six rooms on
the principal floor, a stone basement, and comfortable attics.
The situation is elevated and commands a fine prospect. There
are young and extensive orchards, comprising the choicest varie-
ties of fruit.
Lot 2, containing about fifty acres. Upon this portion there is
a beautiful building site and excellent stone quarries. It is bound-
ed on the south by the county road leading to Pearce's Mill. The
soil is good, and admirably adapted to the purpose of market
To each of these Lots there is an abundance of wood.
Lot 3, containing thirty-seven acres two roods and thirty-five
perches, chiefly in wood.
Lot 4, containing thirty four acres three roods and twenty-
three perches, also in wood.
Lot 6, containing thirty-four acres three roodssand sixteen
perches, heavily timbered and rich.
Upon each of these Lots there are good building sites, over-
looking the Washington and Rockville Turnpike. The water is
excellent, and a stream runs through the whole tract. From
their proximity to the city, and the perfect healthiness of the
region, these lands are deemed te be desirable.
The title is perfect.
Mr. King, the manager, will show the boundaries, and for
price and other particulars, apply to me, at Georgetown, D. C.

locate myself in one of the States, with a view to the practice of

Oi ERRITORIAL ESTATE, MARYLAND, North
r America.-Messrs. Davis and Vigers are instructed to
sell by auction, on Tuesday, 14th November, unless previously
disposed of, a fine property, consisting of 12,700 acres, situate in
Maryland, United States, which, from its agricultural resources,
favorable situation, and vast capabilities of improvement, is most
deserving the attention of those who with moderate fortunes are
desirous of retirement and independence with the profitable em-
ployment of capital. The estate is situate fifteen miles west of
Hancock and twenty-two miles east of Cumberland, and distant
only seventeen days' journey from England. It is bounded on the
south by the Ohio Canal, the Baltimore and Ohio Railway, and
the river Potomac, and on the north by the great Western Turn-
pike road from Baltimore and Washington to the Western States.
The climate is remarkably salubrious and agreeable, and adapted
to European constitutions. The soil is fertile and produces ex-
cellent wheat, beans, barley, clover, and all other produce and
fruits of Britain, with the addition of maize, tobacco, grapes, and
the produce of the South. There is a very comfortable cottage
residence now occupied by the family of the proprietor, situated
in the midst of 200 across of cleared and cultivated land; also, a
powerful steam mill, with stones and pit saws; sheds, stores,
stables, and workmen's dwellings. The post office is only two
and a half miles off, and two mail and four other coaches pass
the estate daily. The land is principally woodland, of the finest
and most valuable description of timber. The mineral resources
are remarkably rich. Iron is abundant and coal is found in sev-
eral situations. There are also sulphur springs, which are con-
sidered of importance. In order to give confidence and to enable
the party to satisfy himself of the eligibility of his purchase,
Messrs. Davis & Vigers are instructed to make it one of the condi-
tions of sale that the purchaser shall have the power to annual the
sale within three months, and without assigning any cause.

E DEN ISLAND FOR SALE, situated in the Poto
mac river, about twenty-five miles above Washington and
Georgetown, in the county of Montgomery, Maryland.
This beautiful tract contains about 360 acres of cleared land,
and has long been celebrated as one of the most fertile and pro-
ductive islands of the upper Petomac. The soil is of fine allu-
vial quality, perfectly inexhaustible, and capable in its present
condition of yielding ten barrels of corn per acre through its
whole extent. Its adaptation to the growth of tobacco, wheat, and
hemp is not less remarkable, The land is now in good order,
having been cultivated on the alternating system, and would yield
at once a rich return to the hand of the industrious agriculturist.
The healthiness of the situation has been thoroughly tested by a
residence of several years. Every convenience for immediate
occupation would be found on the premises, consisting of a com-
modious and moderately sized brick dwelling house, ice-house,
pump of excellent water, barn, stables, and quarters, most oat
them new and all in good condition. A large and thrifty orchard
of peach trees yields fruit plentifully. Fuel in endless abundance
is supplied by the majestic growth of trees which skirt the whole
island, at once giving beauty to the scenery and stability to the
shores. The latter have been found, in fact, rapidly to extend
from the deposit of earth left by the waters. It may be added
that the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, being almost at the door,
affords ready access to the markets of the District, by water,
throughout nearly the entire year.

welfare of our race is constantly on the maroh 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 tdke a retrospective view
over the past twenty years, how is the mind struck with wonderl
What rapid strides has science made in every department of 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 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-
thology 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 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 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
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-
mach, and bowels with all the precision and potency of mineral
preparations, yet without any of their 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-
perienceshaws 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.
NswARK, N J. DBCesMBER 13, 1842.
Messrs. Sands: Gentlemen : Words cannot express the
gratitude I feel for your treatment to me, a stranger, suffering
under one of the most loathsome diseases that nature is capable oh
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 development of 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. 1 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 eyes.
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 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 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 1 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 I had been afflicted with a severe pain in
both sides, at times so hard I could scarcely get my breath. A
hacking cough constantly annoyed me, and this, combined with
other maladies, rendered me traly miserable. Such, gentlemen,
had been my situation for seven years of my life, when I com-
menced the use of your Sarsaparilla ; but as my case was con-
sidered hopeless, and the near prospect of 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 uldera 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 aminputated 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 I Yet it came to me when I 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 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 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
flirted may also use it, and enjoy the benefits it alone can confer,
is the heartfelt, fervent wish of their and your friend,
1 know Martha Conlin, and believe what she states in this do-
cument to be perfectly true. JOHN POWER,

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 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 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 necesst 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 have these eaten, that for twoand a half years they
have been subject tobleeding. During these almost twenty years
I 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 aide-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 wore.
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-
parilia. 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
Sth of October, when I commenced taking your Sarsaparilla, I
was able to enjoy sleep undressed by night, as refreshing as any
l ever enjoyed when in perfect health. Besides, I was in this
short time relieved from all those excruciating and unaileviated
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-
strumenta of blessing others as diseased and despairing as your
much relieved and very grateful friend.

"BUTLER COAL."-This Coal is mined near Wilkesbarre,
Pennsylvania, by Messrs. John L. Butler & Oo., and, as it is but
little known in this city, it has been thought advisable to procure
a few certificates from those who have used it during the past
year, for the purpose of satisfying those who are unacquainted
with its qualities. It is therefore with this view that the following
certificates are annexed :
Richmond, Va. October 21, 1842.
This certifies that I have tested at the Foundry of the Tredegar
Iron company of this city, the Anthracite coal delivered by
Messrs. D. V. Burr & Co. (as Butler Coal) and find it of excellent
quality; and that 2,100 pounds (two thousand one hundred pounds)
of it melted in our cupola 8,000 pounds (eight thousand pounds)
of soft castings, and that as far as I am able to judge it is fully
equal to the coal received by the company from the Lehigh com-
pany near Philadelphia. C. CAMPBELL, Manager.
Test, JOIN F. TANNER.
Richmond, October 21, 1842.
We have tested the above mentioned coal in our furnace, and
fully agree in every particular with the above certificate.
TALBOT & BROTHERS, Shockoe Foundry.
This is to certify that we are burning the Butler Coal purchased
of Messrs. D. V. Burr & Co. in the steam tow boat John Jay, and
find it a superior article for raising steam, being clear of clink-
ers and making but few ashes, being equal if not superior to the
many qualities heretofore used.
JOS. S. HINCHMAN,
Agent for the P. & H.'s T. B. Co.
Havre de Grace, Nov. 7, 1842.
We do hereby certify that we have used Messrs. Butler &
Co.'s Anthracite coal for the purpose of smelting iron ore in a

any coal of this kind that we have ever used. It makes a very
strong and soft metal, equal to the beat Codorus.

This is to certify that I have used the Butler Coal in my Cook-
ing Range, and think it the best coal for that purpose I ever used.

Boston, 20th April, 1843.
This is to certify that I have used the Butler Coal the past
season in my house, and have been much pleased with the burn-
ing of the same, particularly in my furnace. 1 think it to be the
best coal for the furnace that I have ever used.

Cambridge, May 8, 1843; or No. 11 and 12 North Market
I have bought of Messrs. Butler & Co. some hundred tons of
their Anthracite coal, and sold to persons for different uses, and
used considerable of it myself, for burning in stoves and grates.
I do pronounce it as good coal as ever I have made use of; and
all persons to whom I have sold the coal say they have never
used any thing they liked better. J. C GRIER.
