"When the season of adversity comes, as come it
must, the Bajks, acting without concert and without
guide, obeyJng the law of self-preservation, will all

System, or the establishment of a new bank of the U

The Detroit Banks suspended specie payments im-
mediately on the reception of the intelligence that
the New York Banks had done so. The Governor
of Michigan, upon learning the proceedings and as-
certaining the wishes of the citizens, gave notice
"that having maturely considered the condition of
the Country, and the proceedings of the Legislature
of New York, he would issue forthwith, a proclama-

A writer in the Nashville Banner of the 15th inst.
sets forth the reasons why, in his opinion, a suspen-
sion of payments by the Baniks in that quarter, will
be absolutely necessary. We give an extract,
>- "That a rea soable doubt by the banks of their
'ability to continue specie payment through all com-
ing trials, is a-conclusive reaAon for their stopping at
once. It is better for them, better for their creditors,
" better for theitdebtors, and better for the country,
that:they should stop with:the specie in their vaults,
than after they had been thoroughly drained of it.--
What condition will they be in, what their "ejharacter
and 'credit, what the situation of the country, if they
stop after paying out all their specie? Whereas, if
they suspend now, with the specie known to be in
their vaults, they will stop, we may say, with credit.
They will be in a condition to render the community
important services-services more needed now than
they ever were before or can be hereafter-and they
will sooNn 1e able to resume specie payment under fa-
We recommend the article to the serious attention
of the' Worcester Republican, because as it appeared
before the doings of the New York Banks were pub-
licly known in Nashville, it affords additional evi-
dence that there must have been a correspondence
'about, or concert in, these several measures."

Moses Brown, the youngest of the family, survived
until a few months since,.and died, having enjoyed
and exhibited a sound mind in a sound body, until his
last sickness in 1836, aged ninety-eight. He read
much and had a happy talent of communicating
practical knowledge applicable to the virtue of the
mind, and the health of the body. He withdrew
from commerce many years since, and has devoted
himself in connexion with his worthy and only son de-
ceased, Obadiah, and his son-in-law, tothe encourage-
ment of manufactures upon a large scale. Himself
and his son contributed liberally to the raisin arid
endowing in Providence of a sort Of FRIENDS' CoTlege,
to the supposed amount of seventy thousand dollars.
So it is affirmed.
But the principal glory of the joint owners of the
sloop FouR BROTHERS remains untold. There was
a spirit in the firm, which, with their rising pros-
pects, would not permit them to "live for them-
selves." A College for Rhode-Island Colony was
suggested in their hearing. They consulted and
acted, with several other honorable men of the place,
and by their influence and largeness of subscription,
Providence College, now the honorable University
of BROWN, was founded, 1770. The Browns, in-
cluding the family of Judge Jencks, with which
Nicholas was connected in his first marriage, are said
to have excelled the other subscribers in amount of

.~eEsrs. Editors --I-sit down on a rainy day,which
forbids my intended excursions abroad, to amuse my,
self by collecting sundry reminiscences oftifnes gone
by, gathered from respectable persons. They are
specially connected with the productive sloop, THE
FOUR BROTHERS, of Providence, of colonial date.-'
An octogenarian friend-Rev. Joseph Grafton of
Newton-lately deceased, and of most respectable
standing in life, is my remotest authority, and I have
many-others who have given me their aid to' my ,b.
ject. The sloop.appears to have been used in trade
by four united brothers. She was employed for sev-
eral years after the joint commencement in business
about 1766. Our merchants in remote times had
more connexion with vessels of a small size and ton-
nage, at least in the early years of business, ind ,
sometimes to a late period. But with economy, pru-
,dence, and industry, handsome fortunes Were made
gradually, not precipitately; and these were general.
ly continued to theirfarmilies and their sons, of like
character and temperament. The four sons alluded
to, sprang from a pious, active and useful clergyman,
contemporary with the famed Roger Williams.-
Their grandfather was also a clergyman. Their
names were Nicholas,. John, Joseph and Moses.-
Whilst connected with their humble 'sloop concern,
which was perhaps until or near the commencement
of the revolutionary war, they had acquired 'such
gains, that the firm of Nicholas Brown & Brbthers
was erased, and a separate and fair individual estab-
lishment followed. They were the active and effic-
ient fathers and builders of the place of their nativity.
Commerce and trade prospered under them, and un-
der other individuals-the Arnolds, &c. well known
-with whom they cherished an honorable friend-
ship. Under their joint industry and wing ofaoc,-.-
tion, "'H'dtjdeneae and .her increaalsng famnilies were
seen to prosper. John Brown .distinirniaheod Cor mus-
cular strength an -- wrth
the humble laborers in moving the large and heavy
hogsheads, casks and pipes, which were spread on
tht wharf, and pumping the water into his vessels,.
for the, supply of the ship's company. He was one
of the earliest who embarked in the East India trade
(so called) and ibrmed a weharTor wharves for large
ships requiring deep water. For several years he is
supposed to have furnished the means of livelihood,
annually, to one thousand souls or more. In the
midst of his active career he died, at about 63, and
tention between trade and books, and became an
honorable and useful Professor of Astronomy and
Philosophy to the infant College at Providence, re-
ceiving little or no pecuniary recompense from the
pupils. Nicholas, the eldest, and the head of the ear-
liest firm, was also an active and successful merchant
in his own private line, in his last days connected
with the, late George Benson, distinguished for his
skill in book-keeping, accounts;,&c Nicholas died
thie first of the brothers, A. D. 1791, at the age of
sixty-two. Suffice it to say, that he lived in
the affections of many, beside the happy circle
of his own family, in clerical and in civil life.-
At his lamented death, there was but one opinion
in all classes of the community, that a fairer and
more estimable citizen did not survive him. The
writer of this article had opportunities of knowing
him, and the public sentiment concerning him, and is
constrained to say, that a more virtuous man he
never.knew ; he has'long been in his estimate one
of those merchants "whose merchandize and hire
were holiness to the lord." He was to Providence

PENNSYLVANIA CONVENTION.--The Pennsylvania
Convention, after consumingmore time in adjusting
the usual preliminaries of business organization., than
was probably'ever consumed in that way by any par-
liamentary body before, has at last commenced its
labors in e'nest. Fortunately there is a small con-
Sservative majority in that body, else it would be like-
ly to dissolve all government in that State into its
original elements, and leave old chaos grinning in
horrible ecstacy upon the ruins of the constitution.
We have more than once taken occasion to deplore
the Jacobinic spirit so extensively manifesting itself
in that State) and this spirit is more strongly repre-
sented in the convention than we could have desired.

course of Mr Ingersol. Mr Dunlop, who made a
scathing reply to the apostate, will be recollected by
many in this city, as a speaking member of the great
manufacturing convention held in this city in Octo-
,ber, 1831. I-e professed to be a blacksmith, and
dealt to a good deal of striking sledge-hammer elo-
quence-sometimes droll-sometimes humorous-
and always forcible and interesting. He also spoke
two years ago last autumn, at one of our great whig
Meetings at Masonic Hall. We believe, however,
that he was a lawyer before he entered the smithy-
in which, by the way, we suspect he does more head
than hand work, and had much rather blow than
Correspondence' of the National Gazette.
HARRISBURG, May 23, 1837.
.The order of the day was not taken up, as most of
the time of this day's session was consumed in a very
i animated and highly exciting debate, occasioned by
f a report of the minority of the special committee on
corporations, &c. which was read from the clerk's
I desk by Mr Ingersoll, and no doubt the production of
Shis pen. 1 know not what to say of the character of
Sthe report, unless I say, in the language of Mi Ste-
vens, that it is, indeed, a most extraordinary docu-
; ent. It is couched in the most inflammatory lan-
guage, and is ultra radicalism in the extreme. When
it was read, a motion was made by Mr Fuller, of
i$Fayette.to print 1000 extra copies in English, and
500 in German, for the purpose of distribution. This
was opposed by Messrs. Stevens, Denny and Cham-
bers, and Mr Fuller withdrew his motion-which
wks renewed by Mr M'Cahan. A debate ensued
which continued till the time of adjournment, when
the yeas and nays were called, and 57 members an-
swered in the affirmative, and 68 in the negative.
During this debate, which was very warm and
somewhat interesting, though perhaps not a very
profitable one, Mr Stevens said that he haia never
heard anything to equal it in absurdity, nor anything
so calculated to be a firebrand, which would stirrup
mobs and destroy the peace of the country. He
thought the convention should stamp it with decided
reprobation and unequivocal condemnation. Messrs
Chambers and Denny were equally severe in their
expression of indignation. Mr Cox dealtopt such
heavy blows that Mr Ingersoll interrupted Aim, when
the President found it his duty to enforce the rules
of order. Mr J. R. Chandler said that he should
have been utterly at a loss to know what Cause had
brought that report before the convention at this time,
had he not seen a proclamation of the sheriffof Phila-
delphia county for a special election for armember of
Congress. He presumed the gentleman was not
aware that "such'a proclamation had been issued.-
Mr Ingersoll disclaimed any knowledge of the cir-
Mr Dunlop spoke at some length, in a style truly"
unique, and of which it is difficult to give a descrip-
tion so as to convey a correct idea to those whia are
unacquainted with the peculiar manner of that gen-
tleman-pleasant, humorous ridicule, cutting sar-
casm, and logical argument were blended, exposing
the inconsistencies of the course pursued by the gen-
tleman himself. However, he said, he supiiosed it
was allowable to change once in seven years, if not
oftener, and about that time had elapsed sinbe that

suffocation. Beyond this is a chamber with raised
seats, about it, on which people lay extended like
corpses, then rubbing them with camelrahair gloves,
patting with t 'ir hands, or pulling their joints, as
if they hoped to dislocate them. When I passed
through this silent scene, for there was no sound but
the occasional slap that announced to the, subject
under discipline.that he might change his position, I
entered the very centre ot all the vapor. Here
some lay stretched on the floor in the most complete
state of exhaustion, while others sat with their backs
to the wall, awaiting their happy moment of oblivion;
I took my seat among these, in doubt whether to
brave the issue or to fly at once from the caldron. In
a very short time, however, 1 was spell-bound, and
had great difficulty to struggle to the outer room,
where I lay for some time too languid to attempt to
dress. The effe-t of this apparently weakening cer-
emony is very delightful indeed. Oneof its most
pleasing sensations is the marble-like smoothness of
the skin ; there is the consciousness, too, thit among
the many impurities of an Eastern city you can bid
defiance to them all.--.ajor Skinner's Adventures in
Look out for an Exchequer Bank a Government
Money Machine Let the honest opponents of the
establishment of a Bank of the United States, who
are friends of the late and present administration,
keep their eyes wide open or they will be saddled
with a" monster" worse than the old one. The
Government has a hankering for "the flesh potsof
Egypt." Money is power, they say, and many of the
party want the finances of the country to be regula-
ted by the Executive Departmaits. We go against
all this. We say let the law divorce the sword from
the pnrse. The Union, in this country, is unsafe,
unnatural, and anti-republican. If the people and
States will have banks, let them be well regulated by
good laws-but save us from any farther "experi-
ments" or tampering with the currency-save us
also from having the Custom Houses and Post Offi;
ces depositories of the public money !-Alex. Gaz.

the Sabbath, so long shall I run that mail. It is
needless to remonstrate, Gentlemen." Well done,

A Chinese Statesman.-The following scrap of the
of the History of the Chinese Empire, extracted from
a number of the Canton Register, will forcibly re-
mind the reader of the distinguished individual,
who now sits at the helm of publi,affairs in this Re-
public :- .
"Under the reign of Shintsung, Wank-kwei con-
tinued to keep the place of a premier sixteen years.
He was estemed a great flatterer in his day, and, after
his death, history handed him down to the laugh of
posterity, by the appellation of "minister three wills"
When going in to an audience of the emperor, he
invariably said to his colleagues, We'll take his
majesty's will. When others were discussing the
merits of a public measure, his one speech was,-
We'll submit to his majesty's will." And after re-

present to our readers another missive trom the Trea-

the collector at New York;'in'consequence of which,
the latter was unable to carry'out his good' intention
of recieving the current bank paper of that city in
payment of Merchants' Bonds, and, was obliged to'
exact specie. The Commercial Advertiser in notic-
ing the orders and counter-ordets, orders evquivocal
and instructions circumstantial, which for the last
ten days have followed each other in such rapid suc-
cession, says that the well known anecdote of the
European General, who was so much in the habit of
despatching orders and counter-orders, that one of
his couriers, on a certain occasion, took tire orders in
a valise on the saddle before, and the counter-orders in
his portmanteau behind, has received frei% illustra-

Emigrai4on: to the Icit.-The Hennepin Journal,
a handsome.,weekly paper which has been recently
commenced in the town of that name, in Illinois,
SAmong the numerous arrivals at our port, of those
who are to become part of the bone arid sinew of our
great and growing State, we take considerable plea-
-re 'in being enabled to notice one of more than

or forty families from Providence, Rhode Island,
with the intention t1 locate about twelve miles west
of thisplace, on a beautiful prairie site, which, in
commemoration of their former residence, they
have named Providence. They were brought to
this place by the steamboat Wisconsin.. We wel-
come them to the fertile land which their exertions
will soon cause to bring forth the Inxuriant harvest
and to smile 'with the tokens of the enius and indus-
try of civilized man. Onr State needs only to be oc-
cupied by industrious and persevering citizens, to
produce, not only all the n#cessaries, but most of
the luxuries of life, and such a population, ere any
great lapse of time, it will have. Men who are
willing to work, need not here ever complain, either
of wantof employment, or an insufficient remune-
ration of their labor-so that when any who have
visited our beautiful country return to the far east,
crying out "all is barren," their friends may set them
down eitheraas idlers, or as those who labor under a
disease,the which by the learned is termed 'Nostalgia,'
which .teans, simp y "home-sickness." Let the stout
of heart and strong in arm come among us, and they

t7%e French Indemnity Geld.-There has been a
good.deal of inquiry among the claimants under the
French Indemnity as to the fate of the gold that was
imported at their expense, but which never came into
their hands. The following extracts of letters from
Reuben M. Whitney to John A. Willis, Esq. Cashier
of theAFarmers and Mechanics Bank at Detroit,Mich-
igan, throw some little light upon this subject;
July 8, 1836.
SDear Sir-You will be informed by the Treasury
'Department that the Indian Department will have
occasion, between this and the 1st of October, for
from seven to eight hundred thousand dollars at De-
troit; and Mr Harris informed me yesterday that he
should want from two hundred to two hundred and
fifty thousand dollars of the amount in specie. To
meet this, it has occurred to me that you will have
to kend abroad fb-"specie. I have, therefore, thought
proper to inform you that gold, in almost any quantity,
Eatbe had at the Bank of America, at New York, which
has been received from France, and is under the con-
fil of the Treasury Departmeit; and I would recom-
mend that the two deposit banks at 'Detroit unite
together, and send to New York and obtain TWO on
THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS, with which to
meet the wants of the Indian Department. It will
be GOOD POLICY for the banks to do so, as it will be
aiding in carrying out one of the permanent measures
of the Administration-that of circulating gold.
'If you should conclude to adopt these suggestions,
.please inform me, and I will obtain such instructions
as will enable you to obtain the gold without difficul-
tly. 'Yours, truly,
R. M. WHITKEY.

THE BOSTON BANKS AND THE PROVI- a
DENCE BANKS. w
It appears by an advertisement in the Boston pa-
pers, that the bills of a large number of the Provi-
dence Banks are not received in payment or deposit
by the Suffolk Bank of that City. Should any olie
imagine from this, that the bills of the rejected Banks
are not entitled to fully as much confidence as those
of the Bank that rejects them, he would be led into
an error. The returns of the Banks in this City
have always shown a greater amount of means in pro-
portion to their liabilities, than those of any other in-
stitutions with whose condition we have been ac-
quainted. In particular are the bill holders protect-
ed from any possible loss. The entire Capital of the
Banks is pledged for the redemption of their circula-
tion; and few of them circulate over twenty or thirty
per cent upon their capital; some of the largest scarce
ten. In addition to all this, in all the new Banks, the
private property of the stockholders is held, and as
nearly all our men of wealth hold phares in them,
almost the entire property of the State may be said
to be pledged for the redemption of its Bank circula-
tion. The Banks are, by law, prohibited from circu-
lating more than the amount of their capital, so that
the suspension of specie payments which would other-
wise remove the great check upon their issues, will
not enable them to flood the country with a greater
amount of paper than its business requires. We may
safely assert then that the Banks of this plaee are
as secure as human foresight and calculation can
At a time like the present, when the Banks in all
parts of the Country are involved in a common mis-
fortune, and have begp|ompelled to assume an atti-
tude in which they require the support and forbear-
ance of the public to maintain them; we regret ex-
tremely to see any of them adopt measures which
show a want of confidence in each other. Such a
course towards institutions of undoubted solvency, as
are the Banks of this State, is not only unjust, but
suicidal, and must recoil upon its originators. Was
it the object of the advertisement alluded'to merely
to convey to the public a desirable item of informa-
tion, the natural course would seem to be to publish
the names of those Banks whose bills were receivable
instead ofthose whose bills were not reeeivable-or
at any rate if the latter were spread before the pub.
lic, to publish also the reason of their rejection, and
not leave an unjust inference to be drawn as to their
credit. The object of this course is generally sup-
posed to be, to drive'the banks into a measure which
has been proposed to them, but which they have,
with one or two exceptions, rejected-to pay interest
on balances held by each other; thus if ohe bank has
presented a greater amount of its bills than it can re-
deem in the bills oftthe bank making the, demand-it
was proposed that it should pay interest on the bal-
ance until it might be able to meet them. The ob-
jections to this proposition were two; jfit, that two
or three banks might in a short time, put the whole
of their funds into bank notes, and thus have their
whole capital at interest uponn Bank security. while
nary risk of commercial paper; second; that the in-
ducement to relieve the community by discounting
business paper, would be in a great degree removed,
as the banks would be compelled to.pay the same n-
terest that they received, and would have noLhing'
a compensation for the risk incurred.
Again we say that the condition of our Banks is
fully equal to that of any moneyed institutions in the
Country; and we have no doubt that upon a notice
of sixty days, they might resume specie payments
with perfect convenience to themselves.
Mr LINDSLEY, agent for the Washington National
Monument Society, is in town, and will wait on the
citizens for such contributions as they may be dispos-
ed to make to so laudable and patriotic a purpose.
It is intended to publish the names of subscribers,
when the returns are completed, and to deposit the
subscription'books in the Monument.
Westward Hio!-Emigration with a vengeance -
Letters received in this city, dated Buffalo, 22d May,
state that six steamboats, and other numerous craft,
left there that day, carrying four thousand emigrants
into the lap of the fast growing Prairie States of the
The letters also state, that a vast proportion of the
number is from our own State, This fact strikes us,
we confess, with some surprise-and we see no
means of accounting for it, otherwise, than that the
horrors of misgovernment have prostrated the enter-
prize and energies of our own citizens, arid led them
to seek a home in the Western Valleys, where our
political rulers have not yet been able to'concentrate
their forces enough to carry out the work of political
ruin upon the "perish credit, perish commerce" prin-
ciple; though we fear they will be obliged to go to
the Rocky Mountains, to escape the malice of that

-body, with the exception of his ownlrote, it was
unanimously rejected. Immediately after the ad-
journment of Congress in July last, Benton wrote
the Circular, and persuaded Jackson to compel
Woodbnry to sign it, and send it forthwith the same
?'care and speed and the same despotic authority
with which Haman caused the mandate of Ahasue-

anta Anna and to conciliate the republicans.
The American vessels detained at St. Jago have
een permitted to go to sea. The Matamoras Jour-
al says it was done because the American slo'op-of-
car off the coast having taken her departure, the
ause of the detention and the embarrassments of
commerce had ceased. The Mercurio of Mataruoras
f May 5th, says the Texians had made an assault
pon Bexar, set fire to the town and retreated. This
Iludes to an affair probably, the details of which

eyed to head-quarters at Matamoras by order of the

Office a correct statement of the capture of the Ju-
lius Caesar, signed by all the passengers who were on
board at the time she was taken by the Mexicans;"
this was to be published the next day,
The New Orleans Bee of the 22d of May, makes
the following remarks respecting this capture.
"The intelligence from Mexico is calculated in
some measure to calm the public mind. The capture
of the American schooner Julius Caesar was probably
made through mistake, as there is a Texan vessel of
the same name and description. But if it be true
that her passengers and crew are sentenced to death
as pirates, should that sentence be carried into effect,
should a single individual found on board that vessel
lose his life by a Mexican executioner, the vengeance
that will be taken upon Mexico, will form one of the
most important passages in her history. And yet the
permission given to American vessels to leave the
Mexican ports, particularly those loaded with specie,
of which a very considerable quantity has been re-
ceived here, shows the wisdom and prudence which
direct the views of the new President; for there is
no doubt that permission for those vessels to depart
was given by his command. We hope that mutual
concessions on the part of two republics heretofore
tiiendly will revive former relations of amity and
good will, which ought never to have been disturbed."

Motions and their Causes in Animate and Inanimate
.Matter, and in the Mechanic Arts-Electro-Galvanic
Symptoms and Electro-Magnetic Remedies in Chronic
Diseases.-The reading public have seen the notices
of the recent experiments of Ehrenberg and Cross, in
which some of the lower order of animals were pro-
duced by electricity, from a fluid containing silex
and muriatic acid ; they have also seen the notices of
the late discoveries ot Davenport and Cook in an
We are now to notice further discoveries by these
invisible agents-they are the motions, and the cau-
ses of motion in animals, and of animals, in and of
inanimate and animate matter, and in the mechanic
rtits, and also of electro-galvanie symptoms and elec-
tro-magnetic remedies in chronic diseases. H. H.
Sherwood, M. D. of Cincinnati, has been investiga-
ting these subjects many years, and describes and
demonstrated these motions in a great variety of
'ases, so as to leave no doubt on the mind whatever.
They ate the push and pull, or pull and push mo-
"ions, and are the motions of electricity, galvanism,
and magnetism, and produce all the motions in na-
ture. We need not dilate on the importance of these
discoveries, they will he understood by scientific
men throughout the world. A new era hasbegun.
The most important part of these discoveries which
will be immediately felt by the community, are the
new symptoms and remedies in chronic diseases.-
We have seen the.Dr. detect disease in a variety of
pases where it was affecting the different organs and
limbs, with the most perfect ease, without any previ-
qus knowledge of them, and these symptoms are no
doubt invariable. Indeed they are such as to require
:io previous knowledge of the disease necessary, and
are demonstrated in such a way as to give confidence
qo the patient in the certainty of the diagnosis or the
nature of the disease and the organs affected, and
form a wide contrast with the uncertainty attending
!he old or conkmon symptoms. He shows the biod
formed on the principles of the galvanic battery for
-lh production of motion by the electro-galvanic flu-
jd, and when chronic enlargements on the organs and
lirmbd arise, one of the motions (the repulsions and
iepansions) prevail in the organ or limb over the
other motions (the attractions and contractions.) To
cure the disease in any of the organs or limbs, the
most safe and simple means are adopted.. They are,
we learp, electro-magnetic remedies consisting of a
preparation of gold, made and maintained in a nega-
tire state, and a preparation of iron made and main-
tained in a positive state. They reverse the order of
motions in the organs or limbs when the attractive
-and contractions prevail over the repulsions and ex-
pansions; without any restrictions in diet or other
means 1he reduction commences immediately.and in
a few'weeks all the cases (with few exceptioein
the last stage) are entirely and permanently cured.-
These results have attended the cases in this city,
and cases analogous are detailed in a small popular
work published by Dr. Sherwood.
The Dr. has been travelling several months, visit.
The following remarks relative to the "Key West
Fever,' are extracted from Number 7 of a very inter-
esting series of "Sketches of flyida," by Dr.. B.
Strobel, which are communicated, for publication, to
the Charleston Courier. Though, as our calendar
makers say, calculated for that meridian, they will, in
all material points, as regards the second cause spoken
of, do for any of the New.England States.
"Key West was undoubtedly very sickly in the
year 1829. A large majority of the inhabitants were
affected by bilious remittent fever, and many died.
These deaths may in a great measure be attributed
to two causes. One great, and perhaps the chief
cause of fatality, was the exposed and intemperate
lives of those who suffered. The population is a
transient one. Whenever a wreck or the crew of a
wreck is brought down, a number ef individuals
are thrown into the place who are very careless of
themselves; many of them regardless how and
where they sleep; others being strangers to the
climate, are too apt to indulge in the use of ardent
spirits. The wreckers themselves, who are employ.
ed for months on the reef, living well, and deprived
in a great measure of spirits, and an opportunity to
dissipate, while so circumstanced, enjoy excellent
health, and become very robust. But no sooner do
they fall in with a wreck, then the scene and their
course of life is changed,-they are busily engaged
for three or four days relieving the wrecked vessel,
and when she or her cargo is brought to Key West,
they labor all day under a. tropicarsun,, and "keep
it up" for the best part of the night. Often have I
seen these men lying out at night in a heavy shower
of rain. It is no wonder that they should get sick
even in healthy seasons, much less is it a matter of
surprise that they should be swept away by prevail,
ing disease. I must here be permitted to offer my
experience, respecting the use of'ardent spirits in
warm climates. The fever of 1829, swept like a
desolating plague, among those who were addicted
to the free use of strong drink-their cases were
almost hopeless from the beginning; and even
where they did not sink under the immediate effects
of the fever, they only recovered to drag on a inisera-
ble existence, which was generally terminated by
liver complaint, dropsies, &c. Of all the drunkards
then on the Key, one only survived on the first of
January, 1833 ;-a miserable monument of the effects
of ardent spirits.
Another cause of the fatality of the fever in the
year 1829, must be sought in the bad treatment that
was pursued. When 1 arrived at the Key, the prin-
cipal practice was in the hands of a French Quack,
who was by trade a Segar Maker. This man having
read Leroy's Book, had undertaken to compound a
medicine in imitation. The following was some-
thing like the recipe:
Pulv. Rhei one handful,
Tart. Ant. one handful,
Folii Senne two ditto.
The whole to be put in a large pot, and boiled for
half an hour. Dose from a table spoonful to a wine
glass full. With this compound he undertook to
cure all diseases. As for Tonics, Diaphoretics, Blis-
ters, the Lancet, &c. they did not enter into his Ma-
teria Medica. I cannot forego an anecdote, calcula.
ted to show the ignorance of this man, and the blind-
ness and infatuation, which will sometimes induce
the public to trust their lives in the hands of ignorant
pretenders. The Quack being more confident of the
sanative virtues of his own remedies, than physicians
generally are, took it perseveringly for three days to
cure a fever. At the experation of that time, from
the inordinate quantity of Tartar Emetic which he
had taken, he was seized with violent spasms. A
physician who was then on the Key, was sent for.-
A Dover's Powder was administered; and a Mustard
Plaister applied over hn the region of the stomach,
which soon relieved him. On the next morning the
following conversation took place-.
Quack-Eh bein! Monsieur de Docteur. I am
very glad you come to dis place; I understand you
are not de Calomel Docteur.
Doctor-Whoever told you so, is mistaken; I give
Calomel, and freely too, when I deem it necessary.
Quack--(starting back about three paces) Mon Dieu !
Mon Dieu You shall not tell me so Do you know
what de Calomel is made of?
Doctor-(who was a Quiz) no Sir! I do not, but I
shall be happy to know-can you tell me ?
Quack-Oui Monsieur, it is made of de dead men's
bones, and is a poison by Gar.
Such men as this, by inveighing against Calomel,
when they even do not know its component parts,
but much less its properties; and by flattering the
superstition and prejudices of the ignorant, get into
practice, while men of real merit, are left to starve.
With such an ignnramur as_ thi,. paetinin0 tanon the
ed most patients, the disease or the Doctor. One
more anecdote, and I am done .with Monsieur Le
Docteur, for the present. In addition to practising
medicine, he kept a Coffee Room and Billiard Table.
I recollect seeing the following bill, which he pre-
sented to a getleman:

P. Q DR.
There are two classes of persons who have materi-
ally injured the reputation of Key West for health';
its enemies and its friends. Its friends by conceal-
ing the truth, and its enemies by exaggerating it;
whilst the former have represented it a terrreatrial
Paradise, the latter have made it a Golgotha. Both
have erred ; the truth lies between extremes. There
can be no doubt that, in ordinary seasons, Key West
may be considered as a healthy place; whilst on the
other hand, ithas its sickly seasons. I am happy to
add that experience proves, that as improvements
are made, the disease assumes a milder form, and is
less fatal. 1 have never seen a case of Yellow Fever
originated at Key West."
There is no example, we dare to assert, in all the
records of history, of a nation being subjected to so
sudden, universal and disastrous a reverse in its
affairs, as has overtaken this unfortunate country
within the last few months, by the ignorance, per-
versity and mismanagement of its own Government
-not indeed of its Government in the true sense of
the term-but of a single branch of it, having no
legal or constitutional right to act by itself, and act-
ing not only not in concurrence with, but in lawless
and reckless opposition to, the will of the other co-
ordinate branches. The misfortunes of the country
have, in fact, been inflicted on it by the-exercise of a
pure Despotism under the forms of a free Govern-
ment. The storm, though long foreseen by. careful
observers, has burst so suddenly upon the people,that
they stand amazed at the ruin, by which they have
been. overwhelmed without the slightest warning
from those who have been its architects.
The condition ofthe United States, up to the fatal
period when Gen. Jackson commenced his series of
usurpation and follies called the Eperiment,might be
compared to that of a glorious ship, richly freighted,
under Cull sail, with bright skies and aa&voring wind,
careering over the waves to her destined port, her
joyous crew radiant with hope and confidence. In a.
moment has this gallant bark been struck 'down by
an overwhelming storm, and, before a sail could be
furled, thrown broadside on the raging main, her
mauls shivered into splinters, and her astounded crew
'dinimg to the rigging fbr life. Just so sudden and
vrwhelming is the crashing and astounding ruin
brought on the country, by the commandsjf our ship
, of State having been trusted to incompetent hands,
governed 4by a stubborn and headstrong will.
But if the suddenness of the calamity that has be
lhthos dieuntry be:astoundinig, the frmness and
respect for the laws, and for public order, with which
the sholk has been borne, is the most gratifying trait
in the character of the American people that has ever

laying upon his counter; and of the same denomina-
tions, some were heavier and some lighter. The
heavier weights werf used in buying; the lighter in
selling. He had also a yard stick, which became
longer or shorter iniperceptibly to the beholder, by
touching certain concealed springs. It was made
longer when he went to buay, and shorter when he
went to sell. He had a half bushel, with a second
bottom so contrived that it would be made to rise up
or settle down at the option of him who used it.
When he bought, it would settle dowI so as to con-
tain an eighth more than a half bushel. When he
sold, it would rise so as to admit an eighth less. By
thus changing the standard of weight and measures,
the Fox became exceedingly rich, bought extensive
lands, built magnificent houses, and made hundreds
of other beasts work for him and give all their labor
to support him in fraud and luxury.
.Moral.-The banks,and the merchants who man-
age them, furnish the country with its standardof
value, which they are permitted to make more or less
valuable at will. By increasing the bank notes in
circulation they lessen their value, and by diminish-
ing them they increase their value. Thus they get
rich by making the measure of value longer or short-
er, imperceptibly to the people.
United States Bank.-The Indian tradition of the
extinct mammoth is, that the enormous race destroy-
ed every thing in its way,crushed the trees, devour-
ed the animals, and left man himself no safe habita-
tion but a cave. The Almighty, according to Indian
story, having resolved that the.smaller arid feebler
races should thrive and multiply upon the continent,
and that its plants and trees shou fruitify and adorn
it, hurled his thunderbolts among the mammoths,
and destroyed the whole race except the great bull,
who shook the lightning from his horns, and leaped
from the summit of the Alleghany beyond the great
lake, leaving all this fine region to the dominion of
man. The civilized race of the present, it seems,
are not so fortunate as their barbarous predecessors;
they have a new sort of mammoth grown up among
them, not less voracious than the old race, and head-
ed by an old bull who is not likely to take the leap of
his prototype. If well rid of him, it is probable the
people might contrive to manage the rest.
The bankers accuse the Government of indiscretion
in trusting them. True, its "pockets are fall," or ought
to be; but, unfortunately, it suffered the bankers to
hold its pockets. These politic holders have closed
them up, and now tell the Government, it shall not
have a dollar of its own money. By the time Gov-
ernment gets its pockets open again, it is doubted by
some whether any of its money will be found, as
there is some suspicion that th. pocket-holders have
lent it out to merchants proper, and merchant spe6u-
lators; or, in some cases, perchance, transferred to
their own pockets.
Combinations."-Which is the worst: "a combi-
nation" of men to increase the pe of labor, or "a
combination" of men not to pay their debts
A few months ago some of the workingmen df
New York combined together for the purpose of in-
creasing the'price of their labor; and, if we recollect
aright, were prosecuted and punished far it. The
Trades Unions are now in some papers a standing
theme of denunciation.'
The bankers of New York combined together for
the purpose of sustaining each other in setting the
laws at defiance, and refusing to pay their debts, and
the Mayor of the city called out the military to protect
The common people are punished for combining to
get more wages, although nobody is obliged to em-
ploy them ; but our paper-money barons are protect.
ed by military force in refusing to pay those very
people their hard earnings !
The time was in England when a lord could kill a
common man if he wa prepared to pay his price,
while the common man was hanged for shooting a
rabbit on the lord's lands..
Are we not practising upon the same principle in
the exemptions and pnilveges extended to our lords,
the bankers ?

Rural Felicity in the West.-The prairies of Illi.
nois are so levelled and free from obstructions, that.
after turning the first furrow, the ploughman seats
himselfon his plough, which is guided by wheels,
and rides for miles without the least trouble. It is
-not uncommon to see one, lolling at his ease, read-
ing some book, or hddling for his own amusement
and that of his oxen. Who would'nt be a farmer
Ms. EoDi--o-There seets to be a determination among cer
tain persons to make the public believe that' am continually
destroying vast numbers of the human family y the steam of
hot water, or the poisonous effects of capeme and tlla. Almost
every day there appears to be a new report put In circulation.
like the following, vi: that a child has been steamed to death
-that some person has died under the operation of the lobelia,
or what is quite as probable, that the cayenne has operated like
poisonous minerals, and destroyed not only the coating of the
stomach, but the very stomach itself.
Now be it kaown to all persons, that each, and all, of the
above report are entirely FALI,, and without the least fonda-
tion, as no person, either man, woman or child, has died at my
Infirmary, which is certainly somewhat remarkable, as it has
been continually crowded with patient, and many of the most
desperate class. Not a week has passe for considerable time,
but that I have been compelled to refim several applications.
for admittance, which I hope will not be the case In future, as
I have just completed several improvements n the establish-
ment. J. A. BROWN, B. T. P.

consequence, since the suspension of specie payments, though
we do not fhd that the banks have enlarged their accommo-

the reduction of business.

D R. VAN HA;.IBERT'S FEMALE RENOVATING PILLS
D FROM GERMANY.-PR. VAX IAMBERT, Physician
to the German Female Infirmary, having used the above Pills
in his private practice for the last twenty five years, and in the
Female Infirmary under hia care, for the last fifteen, with such
unparalleled success that he feels in duty bound to let the world
and especially the female pat of it, have the benefit of his re-
search and experience. The number of- females admitted an -
nually from different parts of the Kingdom into the Infirmnary
is about 300, all laboring underobstructions, suppressions,greein
sickness, or some irregularity, as maybe seen by the annual re-
port of the Institution. The Pilklinvariably open these obstruct
tions, and bring nature into its proper channel, whereby health
is restored, and the pale and deathly countenance changed to at
healthy one; but these pills should never be taken by a female
in the family way, as they would be sure to cause her to mis
carry. For further particulars see directions accompanying the
Pills. OH. C. VAN HAMBERT, M. B.

T HE I'lhILOSOPHER'S STONE AT LAST DISCOVER
ED.--DR. H. POETT'7 Gonorrhaa Eradicator, is now
introduced with tihe utmost confidence, to those who have un -
guardedly contracted Gonorrhiea or ****, as it has cured up-
wards of .3000 persons, the majority of whom, in from I to 3
days. Of all medicines yet discovered, this is the most certain
and agreeable, neither requiring restriction in diet nor suspen-
sion of business, and it is impossible to be detected while using
it. From the universal success attending its administration it
is invariably called Dr. Poett's Specific. It acts like a charm
in vexations, Gleets, painful Strictures, and swellings in tlhe
groins, accompanied with bloody urine and difficulty of voiding
It. It also imparts immediate relief in diseases of the prostrate
Gland, and in two or three doses only, effects the desired cure.
It is impossible to describe the .ease it affords those troubled
with stone in the bladder or the passing of gravel. This inval.
able Medicine needs only a single trial to ensure success, and
the complendation of the unfortunate thousands that have been
cured by the Eradicator is all sufficient. Give it a fair trial,
and become your own medical advisers. The following letter
will speak more than volumes in its praise.

When any medicine of real benefit to humanity is offered to
the public by a professional brother, I am amongst the foremost
to give it a fair trial ; and, therefore, with no ordinary degree of

.And the'birds of the air come.and build their nests in
the armsaof saiitsandflidapostles. And more than all,
in great cities we learn to look the world in the face.
We shake hands with stern realities. We see our.
; .s*Wles in others. We become acquainted with the
motley, many-sided life of man; and'finally learn, if
sveaeo wise, to "look upon a metropolis as-a collec-
toas of villages; a :villae :,as some' blind alley in a
etropolis; 'fame as.the. talk of neighbors at the street
dQors; ,a'Jibrary as learned conversation ; joy as a
secoi:l,:sorrowasia minute ;life as a day; and three
tAhmings as all, God, Creation, Virtue.'*
Now, of all cities, Londn is the Monarch. 'To us
likewise is it The Great Metropolis. We are not
Seookneys. 'Wp were born on this side of. the sea.--
Qur family name is not recorded in the'Doomsday
'Book. 'It is doubtful fi*hether our ancestral tree was
", planted so far back as the Conquest. Nor are we
what Sir Philip Sidney calls, "wry transformed trav-
ellers." *We do not affect foreign air, nor resem-;
.ble' the nerry.Friar in the Canterbury Tales of whom
Sthte PreogUe 'says:--
.teftSewhat he lisped for his wantonness,'
T'o make his English sweet upon his tongue."
SNeverthele to us likewise is London the monarch
of cities. The fact that the: English. l amnguage. is6po-
; ken in some parts of .ittaikesus,.feel at home there,
4nd gives us;-as it were, the freedom of the:city.-
Even the associations of childhood',conectc us, with
it. We remember it asfair back 'as the happyjdays
- when we loved nursery songs, an'd 'rode a hoesebak
on the 'bet fathMr's.knee." Whittington and liiseatl
lived the;e. All our picture books InWd our sisters'

aysa. Since tkoase .toa* ves have grownwiser. We
hbae been in, Saint Paul's churchyard, and know by
eartht Wt the green parks At"dquiet squaress of Lon-
don. And-now finally for us grown up children,
.appears the New London Cries, this book of the
SForty-five miles westward from the. North Sea, in
hite lap of a bload and pleasant valley watere'd'by the
T'hames, stands the Great Metropolis, as all the
world knows. It comprises the City of London and
i t Liberties with the' City and Liberties of West-
minster,. the Borough of Southwark, and upwards of
thirty of thecontiguons villages of Middlesex and
Curry.- Jast and West, its greatest-length is about
Igbt miles: north and south, its greatest breadth
boeut five, its circumference from twenty to thirty.
Its p-pukltiou is estimated at two millions. The
act livingg tide-goes thundering thirough.its ten thou-
4and .streets .in one 'anbr=ken roar. "The noise of
Sthe great thoroughfare is deafening. But you step
aside into a by:lane, and anon you.emerge into little
green squares half filled with sunshine, half with
'haae, where no sound ofiliving ;thing is heard, save
.. be .vo.cs of 'birtlr a:child, and amid solitude and
Silence you gaze in wonder at the trees, "growiuo in
c Abe heart of a brick arid mortar wilderness." Then

The best of the story is yet to come. The Globe,
in other. words Mr. Martin Van B-.en and his asso-

will operate as a most salutary check' upon the in-
flations of paper currency. But why talk of paper
currency in these days ? Did you not tell us that the

that in a twelvemonth from the date when it was

The prices here, of labor and evely thing else, are

Servants, in houses, can hardly be obtained at any

bushel-the price by the quantity is from 12 shillings
upwards. Potatoes are one dollar per bushel. From
these specimens some idea may be formed of the
"prices current" of Milwaukie.
The prospects of the place for years to come
are highly flattering. Among the towns -and
cities laid out in the West, those only can grow to
great importance that are really wanted; and among
these that stands the best chance which has the great-
est natural advantages. However much interested
men and factitious circumstances may crowd forward
a favorite place for the present, it must rely for per-
imanent sustenance and growth, mainly upon its nat
ural advantages. In this view, I say, that a town is
needed in the region where Milnaukie stands ; and
that this point has superior advantages to any other.
The main advantages to a town upon the Lake,
are, a good harbor and a good back country. In
these respects Milwaukie is unrivalled. 'The harbor
is Naturally a good one, and with improvement would
become the best one on the whole Lake.' The river
is wide and deep enough for the largest vessels on
the Lake. The back country around this town, and
extending through the Territory, cannot be surpass-
ed int beauty and fertility. But of this I am .to speak
in my next. In the two great points for a town,
Milwaukie stands secure.

'the improvement of our harbor, and then the steam-'
boats and schooners that are now seen, sometimes in

on the showing of this projector, it seems perfectly
useless to employ any sclh agency. 7T.e Treasury
of the. United States,-with a few suitable and responsi-
ble qfflcers'at the great emporium of commercial inter-
course, is amply sufficient to carry on the transactions
required by the .public service, without placing the
public-'finances urinder the control of any grasping
corporation. The public' have seen and experienced
quite enough of their boasted facilities."
"Suchan arrangement will operate as the most
salutary check upon the inflation of paper currency

actual wealth of the country in years past. If the
debts of the United States be paid, when they are
paid, either in actual cash, or the evidences of claims

of specie payments. Whatever follies the State
Banking institutions may commit, the value recog-
nised by'ihe constitution of the United States will
not be deteriorated. The United States have an in-
dependent Legislature-an independent Judiciary-
and why dependentt Treasury ?"
This is the game, is it? The Pet Bank system
has exploded, and now the tinkerers are for a great
TREASURY BANK, founded on the revenue and cred-
it of the government-with officers of Mr Wood-
'bury's selection to sell a few bills of exchange. With
thirty millions of revenue, and a like amount of
stocks issued on the credit of the United States, we
suppose, -they would form their Treasury Bank,
make it, of course, a part of the Treasury, and sub-
ject to the entire control of the administration-with
its hundred branches extending its corrupting, pes-
tilential influence over the whole surface of the
Country, with Presidents, Directors, Cashiers,
Clerks, mere tools of the Executive-this is the
scheme which the party now propose- this is the
public granary which they would "erect, where all
of their creatures may feed-the glorious forage
house of the Treasury !
A proposition so monstrous, and leading to such
disastrous consequences, must be reprobated at the
outset. These men, eight years ago, united the
money power of the' country with the Executive,
and mark the issue. The system which they built
up, and which was to be so essential to the interests
of the people has exploded, and while the authors
are rioting in the mischief which they created, with
one voice, this new scheme must be exposed to the
indignation of the people. Let Congress beware
that they do not give form and shape to a monster
which will stalk over the land, killing prosperity,
stability and virtue.
But, says the veritable Globe,a few suitable and re-
sponsible officers having at their command the treasu-
ry of the United States, might perform all the duties
required by the public service, without having the
public finances under the control of any grasping Cor-
poratiou. Admirable logic this, and charactertet ofA
some misapprehension on the part of the encyclopae.
dist. It must be remembered that Mesmer had de-
clined a large pecuniary reward which was offe-ed
him by the French Government through the Baron
de Breteuil, on condition of establishing a magnetic
dinicum, and instructing three persons in the art-
selected by the Government. And it must also be
,remembered, as stated in another article, that he
wholly refused to give any information to the com-
mission. .-ll their means of examination therefore
were through the experiments of M. Deslon,' whose ri.
diculous complication of machinery, was perfectly in
keeping with the true spirit of quackery, and is no
where charged against Mlesmer, who it seems, de-'
aounced M. Deslon as an imposter." Furthgrmore,
Mesmer declared that Animal Magnetism "has the
peculiarity of affecting certain individuals alone,while
it has no perceptible effect on others-a difference of
constitution whish can only be ascertained by actual
experiment." This accords with present experience,
But M. Deslon undertook to produce effects uponi all
Persons indiscriminately. The commissioners them-
selves were subjected to the operation of his machi-
iery. It is well known now that not one in ten can
be treated magnetically with effect.
There is one more feature in this business worthy
.if special note. Mesmer and M. Deslon professed to
sure-diseases, and the commission expressly say they
confinedd themselves entirely to the investigation of
that pretence. Not one-word is said about the clair-
voyant power of the patients; a power, the existence
of *which i ht been established beyond the denial of
sound philosophy. Whether; M. Deslon had discbv-
eyed this, remains in doubt, since not a word is men-
4ioned on the subject.' If the commissioners had
seen it exhibited they would have found insupera-
ble difficulty in persuading themselves that all which
(they saw, was referable to the excitement of the im-
agination. And since, in all the accodants which we
have access to, no mention is made by Mesmer or
Deslon of several phenomena well. known at the
present time, we may conclude that neither of them
was acquainted with these phenomena. They seem
to have stumbled upon one of nature's abstruse sub-
jects; and, certainly in the case of Deslon, perhaps
also in t/tat ofJ Mesmer, there was much quackery
practised upon the credulous in relation to the cura-
tive efflcts of Animal JMagnetismr. If this was the
case, it cannot militate in the least against the facts

.. "' MILWAUKIE, May 7th, 1837.
After a long round-about journey of a month,
thtlough the Western States, I have at length arrived
at this pite. I left here last Octobor, and as I first
caught a returning view of it in entering Milwaukie
Bay I could,.scarce credit the fact that I was ap-
,preaching fsesame town. The number of new and
elegant frame buildings that had been erected during
my absence,.many of them where trees had stood
,before, adding as much to the beauty as to the size
of the place, gave, it altogether quite the aspect of an
On entering the town 1 found a change no less
remarkable. Woodhad been cut down, new streets
laid out and graded-the population had increased
from 1500 to 2500-and the number of buildings had
almost doubled. New stores have been opened, busi-
ness has increased, and what perhaps is more remark-
able, while the East and many towns of the West
have been groaning under a calamitous pressure
in the money market, times here have been compara-
For the information of such of my friends as wish
to establish themselves in a Western town, and more
especially of farmers who wish to emigrate for the
purpose of settlement, I propose to state in this let-
ter "that which I do know" of the history and advan-
tages of this town; and in a second to speak of the
lands in the interior of the Territory.
The name of this place (Milwaukie) is an Indian
term, and signifies in English "Beautiful Land."
The name has the usual appropriateness of the In-
dian epithets, as every one who has been here will
bear witness. It is situated at the head of Milwau.
kie Bay, at- the mouth of the Milwaukie River.
Owing to some uncertainty as to the poinh where
Government will construct the harbor, the build-
ings, and of course, the business, are at present a
little above the mouth of the river. The place
conAprises Milwaukie and "Walker's Point" and
"Kilbourn's" additions. "Walker's Point" addition
is near the mouth of the river, on the west side,
and owing, probably, to the reason abovementioned,
is not yet much improved. "Kilbourn's" addition is
farther up the river, on the same side, and is incor-
porated as "Milwaukie on the west side of the
river." The original town incorporated as "Mil-
waukie," is directly opposite on the east side of the
river, and extends down to the mouth. The two
latter points are improving rapidly.
As yet the East sides in the advance, having had
somewhat the start. Owing to the difference of in-
terests on the different sides of the river, there is
great rivalry ; each side striving hard for the ascend-
ency. This is a fortunate thing for the place if the
rivalry does not carry the parties into extravagance
or hostility. Which will finally prevail is a problem

Numerous instances of injustice towards the char-
acter of men who have deserved the gratitude of pcs-
terity for their improvements in science and in mo-
rals, are to be found on the pages of history.' Man-
kind are frequently thoughtless towards their bent'-
factors while living, but they generally repay their
neglect by sowte posthumous notice. Sooner or la-
ter they are h'Tught to acknowledge genuine worth,
though they deserve the lash of the satirist, for the.
tardiness of their acknowledgement.
See nations slowly wise and meanly just,
To buried merit raise the tardy bust.
It may be well for the friends of Animal Magnet-
ism to look into the character of him who discovered
and first practised it. Perhaps it will be found that
Mesmer himself has suffered injustice at the hands of
the world. If that is not the case, why is it that ma-
ny of our scientific journals attribute the whole ef-
fect of animal magnetism to the imagination of the
patient, or to the deception of the Magnetizer ?
We know that sound philosophy could not come
to such a conclusion. We know that certain phe-
nomena take place which are not to be shuffled off
in that unphilosophical spirit They demand investi-
gationl. They plead eloquently in defence of the
characters of those who have been long vilified for
proclaiming them. Urged by a deep crmviction that
the character of Mesmer has been misrepresented, I
have looked into all the authorities which are within
my reach. The result of my inquiries is not verve sa-
tisfactory, for all these authorities are highly condem-
natory of the science and its discoverer. But, as it
frequently happens in untrue or prejudiced state-
ments, some facts are laid down which throw suspi-
cion upon the whole, or contradict in part. It may
be that Mesmer was too hasty in practising upon his
medical theory, and by his failure, contributed to
bring the science into question and disrepute. No
one can fail to perceive that they do not stand or fall
together. If Mesmer did not effect a single cure,
there was not in truth a reason for discrediting the
science. There was no more connection between it
and his therapeutic theory, than there is between the
geometrical rules of architecture, and the unfortunate
application or rather misapplication of them by the
architect employed by the Messrs. Joseph.,
What, then, is the use of reviving Mesmer's name
and pretensions ? Chiefly because his want of suc-
cess, has caused people to distrust all the discoveries
he made. Geometry suffers nothing from the mis.
takes of an architect, because its principles are firm-
ly established : but mr.gnetismin received stunning,
though Not a fatal blow, from the misc:arriage of
besnier. He is accusec(d of tlit' rossest drcepption,
and consequently t.he facts stated by hjinx are not
thought w.rtliy of examinination.
Now if it can be shown that Me(smpr was honest
in his convictions, and that if* lie committed errors,
they were the offspring ,f 'wrong reasoning, it will
go far to induce men to use cornllmllo candi.r towards
the science. And if It can be further shown that he
was a man of learning, we cannot, with any pre-
tence to modesty, reject his opinions without serious
consideration. Truth cannot be destroyed; it may
be trampled upon for a season, as the cross is said to
be annually trampled upon by the Japanese, but it
will one day be raised to its proper dignity, and com-
tmand the acquiescence of men.
To commence, then, with a proper understanding
between the reader and the writer, it must be' stated
that there are no sources of information within
reach at present, but the articles "Animal Magnet-
ism" and "Mesmer," in the Encyclopedia Ameri-
cana, and similar ones in Ree's and in Brewster's.
These are all written in the same spirit, and of the
last two, one is evidently a hasty transcript of the
other. The Encyclopedia Americana has given a
more extended view of the specific effects produced
both upon the magnetizer and the patient, taken
from more modern sources; but it has given such a
coloring to the whole, that no dependence can be
placed upon it. Amid so many misstatements, it is
possible that sbme gleamings of truth may appear, to
throw liglit upon the real character of Mesmner. I
am too well acquainted with the nature of human
prejudice, to attribute these misstatements to de-
liberate desiorn. They were made so recently after
the report ot'the French commission, which was sup-
posed to overthrow the whole matter, that their
general spirit is perhaps, to be attributed to the
general conviction of the times, which yielded at
once to the exalted character of the authors of that
FREDERIC ANTHONY MESMER was a German phy-
sician, born atMersburg in Suabia in 1734. That he
was a man of some learning, appears probable from
the fact ofhs having published several works, one in
the Latin Language "De Planetarum lnfluxu," in
which, says the Encyclopaedist, he maintained that
the heavenly bodies exercise an influence on the
bodies annmnals. He is accused "of associating the
Myw,,l n posphy with the reveries of astrologers
-but in this, hlie partook of the same delusion which
was common with many learned men of that period,
some of whom have left other works, behind them to
prove themselves to have been nevertheless truly
wise and scientific men.
He went to Vienna, where he began to practise
with mineral magnets. Meeting with little success
there, he made application to the academies of science
at Berlin and Paris, and to the royal society of Lon-
don, which were treated with contempt.
In 1779, the year after he came to Paris, he pub-
lished an account of his discoveries. About this time
he made a convert of M. Deslon, who, savs the au-
thor of the article in the Encyclopaedia Americana,
from a pupil, became a rival, and whom he then re-
presented as an impostor.
- There is something in this account, which taken
in connection with other things, makes Vs suspect
'death, he published a volume of experiments and dis-
coveries, which, says one, "attracted no notice."-
However that may be, we have the authority of Doct.
Brewster, that "in some of the German Uniierjsities
Animal Magnetism takes its. place with the other
sciences, and has its professors and lecturers."
The report of the last commission appointed by
the Royal Society of Physicians in Paris, has set
many ingenious and ingenuous minds to work upon
!this subject. But there have been no cases reported
in the European journals, which are so satisfactory
as those which we have had an opportunity to wit-
ness in this town and vicinity. And, if we cannot
prove Mesmer to have been, like Erasmus,
The glcry of his country and the shame,
we shall wait further confirmation, before ,we con-
demn as an empiric, him who struggled with fideli-
ty through a long life, to establish truths which we
deem worthy of investigation.
*.Since this sentence was written, a successful experiment of
this kind has been made in this town. The testimony is in-
dubi table. 'A young woman having been totally blind for more
than a year, is readily put into the clairvoyant state. We hope
the g intleaan who has this case, a highly respectable physi-
cian, will ot deem this note apiece of impertinence.
The article to which the subjoined communication
of X refers was copied by us from the Boston Centi-
nel fobr the express purpose of future note and com-
ment, believing from the nature of the piece and the
character of the paper in which it first gained publi-
city, that it would be extensively copied. Our in-
tention was, when a little more leisure would admit
of it, (unless some one better qualified for the task
should in the interim animadvert upon it) to. exam-
ine it in detail; for knowing that the assertion rela-
tive to a loan to Mr. Slater was erroneous, we had
reason to believe that some other particulars were
incorrect. We are however saved the undertaking
by the following remarks from "one who knows."'
S"THE BROWN FAMILY."
Mr. EDITOR :-Permit me to remark upon the
strange medley of fiction and of fact which, under the
above title, some worthy octogenarian of Dorchester,
(Mass.) has given to the public, through the medium
of the Boston Centinel. 1 cannot pause to expose
the numerous exaggerations and erroneous statements
into which a treacherous memory, or imperfect
means of information have betrayed the Centinel's
correspondent. That he is "a lover of Practical
Philanthropists," I have no reason to doubt; but if
the subsequent paragraph from his article is to be
considered as a specimen of his accuracy, I am
afraid his "reminiscences on a rainy day" will hardly
win a place among the faithful records'of history :
"In one distinguished instance, and at a threatening period,
something resembling- the present, Mr. Ives suggested the loan of
five hundred thousand dollars to the relief of the father and
leader of the American Cotton and Cloth Mills, S. Slater, Esq.
now deceased, when otherwise a complete bankruptcy must
have taken place. To this proposal the senior of the firm gave
his instant and most cordial assent. Slitter was saved by this
joint noble act, which, it is believed, is without a parallel in our
mercantile houses. Slater, in consequence, is said at his death
to leave half a million to his heirs."
Now, Mr. Editor, there is hardly a single word of
- truth in this pregnant paragraph. How many thou-
sands the late Mr Slater'left to his heirs, we do not
know, and if we did, we should not care to foist into
the newspapers a fact which Concerns none but pri-
vate individuals,--But we do know,'that the late r.
Ives never suggested to his partner a loani of $50Q0,00
for the relief of Mr Slater; that no such loan was
ever made, or vw.as ever intended to be madeby the
house of Messrs. Brown & Ives; and that no
partner in that house, as sut? 'ever claimed any
credit for participating in d#E measures adopted for
the relief of Mr. Slater, during his temporary embar-
rassmnent in the year 1829. As President of the Provi-
dence Bank, Mr Ives took a prominent part in these
measures, which it is known to every business man
in this community were concerted by several of
our banks, who relying on the ample resources of Mr
Slater, and deprecating the consequences of his fail-
ure to the whole community, united in sustaining
him at a crisis of commercial, distress, which till the
present has had few parallels in the history .of our

THE BEN SHERROD STEAMBOAT.
There is some degree of satisfaction in knowing
that the late appalling and wanton destruction of hu-
man lives on board the steamboat Ben Sherrod, is not
passed by in utter indifference by the people residing
on the Mississippi. A public' meeting of the citizens
of Natchez has been held for the purpose of inquiring
into the facts connected with this most melancholy
affair, and a committee specially charged with the
duty of making the investigation have made a report
of them, founded on the testimony within their reach.
The report declares-.
"That the steamboat Ben Sherrod left the city of N.
Orleans, bound for Louisville, having on board up-
wards of two hundred passengers, inclusive of the
crew, the steamboat Prairie leaving about the same
time, for the same place; and that the said boats had
been "racing" from the time they left New Orleans
until the fatal occurrence, which took place about li
miles above Fort Adams, at 1 o'clock, on the morn-
ing 6fthe 9th instant, the Prairie Ifeipg a few miles
ahead; that previous to that time said boats had passed
and repassed each other some twice or three times.
The Sherrod had been on fire, and was known to
be so by the hands on said boat, sometime before the
alarm was given to the passengers in the cabins on
the lower deck, and that ample time elapsed after the
discovery of the fire, to have run the boat ashore and
landed every passenger on her, she being then not
exceeding 200 yards from the shore on the right side
of the river, but that no attempt whatever was made
to effect a landing, after the discovery of said fire, un-
til several minutes had elapsed, when the Captain,
(C. G. Castleman,) finding that the boiler deck was
-in flames, ordered the pilot to run her ashore, but it
was now too late, the wheel rope having been sever-
ed by the flames. The Captain then ordered the en-
gineer to stop the boat, but he had fled from his post,
thus leaving.the boat under full headway, uncontrol-
led by the pilot, and bearing out from the shore far-
ther into the middle of the river. The flames had
now reached nearly to the' stern of the boat; all was
consternation and despair, the yawl suspended by
pullies, was immediately filled with passengers, and
in lowering it to the surface of the water, some one
cut away the bow rope, which caused the yawl to be
run down, and the loss of all within it. The' remain-
ing passengers and crew were now forced overboard
by the approaching flames.
The report further states "that at the time the Sher-
rod took fire the hands on duty were in a state of in-
toxication, having access at all times to a barrel of
whiskey, placed forward of the boiler deck for their
use, and that the engineer then on duty was equally
culpable, having furnished the firemen with large
quantities of brandy or other spirits, as an induce-
ment to keep up excessive fires, with a view of over-
taking the steamboat Prairie, then ahead of them."
Severe censure is cast upon the captain or the Sher-
rod for his great indiscretion and neglect of duty,
and for the great disregard manifested for the safety
of his passengers. The Committee state that.net
less than one hundred and fifty lives were the sacri-
fice of his outrageous proceeding.
The Report was unanimously accepted by the
meeting, and resolutions were subsequently offered
and adopted, expressive of the sentiments of strong
disapprobation entertaiaetf in reference to-the con-
duct of the captain of the Sherrod, in particular, and
avowing the necessity of legislative action in order to
render sat the immense trade and travel on the Mis-
A committee was appointed to memorialise the
State Legislature on the subject, and to pray that
body to call the attention of the Legislatures of all
the States bordering on the Mississippi and Ohio riv-
ers to it.

Until a year and a half ago the place contained
only two or three log huts, occupied by'as many
squatters and Indian Traders. In the month of Au-
gust 1835, the lands were brought into market and
were held by the occupants either by right of pre-
emption or by "floats." The firstframe houses in the
place were put up a year ago last winter. One year
ago the present time there were only 18 or 20 houses
in town. From thattime, property advanced rapidly
and the process of building has steadily continued
up to the present time. There are now rising three
hundred buildings, and the work is going on rapidly
as ever. There are too large Hotels in operation;

UNIVERSAL FAMILY PILLS --The most safe.- jbetuu
and economical remedy for diseases of the Human Cwrsitv
tion, that has ever been discovered.-These Pills are composed
entirely of materials extracted from Medicinal Plantsj and are
warranted not to contain one particle of mercury; or any mine-
ral substance. Dr. Kin gley the inventor of this valuable medi-
cine, from his knowledge of the Human System, derived from
a long and extensive practice, has arrived at the conclusion,
that the great and primary cause of most diseases is a derange-
ment in the functions of the Livza; or in other words an n-
creased or dinin'shed secretion of the BiBn.
So-well is this understood, that it is common fr pewsons to,
say when they feel unwell; that they re bilious, meaning that
they have too much bile in the stomaol. On the other hand,
when the flow of bile is diminished, the process of digestion it
Imperfectly performed, the patient becomes weak and emacia-
ted, because nourishment coutaiued In the food taken into tiet
stomach is not properly extracted, and thfe fed-&is ejected in a
crude state. Dr. Kingley is confident that the famous Hygesea
Theory, so called, that 'inmpriy of the blood is tkh#c'isq$#fra
a 'e 'ir a, tts rau -itr ty. -Every ve wHoD reflects uro lon We
subject a moment, will N'rceive that impunity of the blood is a
secondary,nota primary complaint---the effect and n, t the cause
of disease. When the functions of the ivre are deranged,and
the flow of bile increased, it is often taken up by the absorbent
vessels and carried into the circulation, and becomes mingled
with the blood as in Jaundice, when the patient shows it ip his
countenance. Now this impurity of the blood is caused bysi
increase flow of bile, aud to remedy it vou must correct tke se-
cretion of the liver, and restore it to a healthy state;
Dr.. Kingley has-spent much time in expenmeriting With dif-
lerent vegetable medicines, for diseases of the liver; and now
offer his Universal Family Pills, as the best, most convenient,
and cheapest medicine that can be prepared for general use,and
in offering them to the public he is actuated more by beaeselmt
than pecuniary motives, as the price of the medicine will show.
Dr. Klngley flatters himself that his long experimenting with
vegetable medicines has enabled him to discover the true and
only substitute answering ailthe purpose of mercurials with-
out any of their attendant evils. One great quality of his ]a-
mily Pills is that they have the altsratse principle combined
with their cathartic, or operative quality, so that they not only
cleanse the stomach and bowels by purging, but they teglte
ihe liver, change the morbid secretions, strengthen the dtbige-
tirve organs, purify the blood, invigorate the circulation, and
give tone and energy to the nervous system. .. ,
They are mild and pleasant in their operation, and icoetey
almost immediate conviction of their utility from the first dose.
They can be taken with safety by persons of any'age; and t6
feeble, the infirm, the nervous, and delicate, are strenltheued
by their operation, because they clear the system of bad ir-
mors, quiet nervous irritabilities and restlessness from whatever
source, and invariably produce sound sleep.
The Family Pills are a sure remedy for Jaundice, Sick and
Nervous Headache, Dyspeplia, Costiveness, Sickness of the
Stomach, Heartburn, all Billious Complaints, Fevers of all
kinds, and if taken at tihe commencement will invariably check
their progress, and arove the patient from a protracted and dan
gerous sickness. They are iUvaluable 'in Nervous and Hypo-
chondriacal Affections, Loss of Appetite, and all complaints to
which Females alone are subject. They operate as a mild and
speedy purge, and are a safe and certain remedy for Worms in
Since I hrve introduced my Universal Family Pills to the
Rublic, I have received numerous certificates of their superior
efficacy in caring djseases; alo, many letters from respectable
Physicians, who have used them in their practice with the best
I might publish a small volume of certificates, but consider it
unnecessary, as the medicine will recommend itself to all who
will make trial of it. JOHN KINGLEY.
These Pills are put up in neat boxes of two sizes; the small
size contains 25 Pills, and the retail price ias25 cen's'; the large
size contains 60 Pills, the price is 50 cents. ,
