PRIVATE TUITION. -The Rev. R. W. HARRIS
S receives into his family twelve pupils, of whose En-
glish, Classical and Religious Education, preparatory to
their admission into College, he takes the charge. In order
more effectually to secure the moral purity of those who
may be confided to his care, no pupil will hereafter be re-
ceived over the age of 11 years. For the same reason, a
boy whose influence, after sufficient trial, is deemed per
nicious, will not be permitted to remain. While every
thing is done to promote the true welfare and happiness of
his scholars, the discipline maintained is not lax, but un-
yielding and strict, designed to form habits ofobedience and
application. Hissituation at White Plains, Westchester
county, New York, is remarkably pleasant, and unsur-
passed for health. It is distant twenty-six miles from the
city, with which there is daily communication by a line of
stages.
TS'RMS-$200 per annum, inclusive of every expense
of Board and Tuicion, and payable semi-annually. Each
pupil to furnish cot, bedding, &c. as at other schools. Any
additional information can be obtained if desired, on appli-
cation by letter to Mr. H.

INFANTS' RETREAT,-FLUSHING, L.I.
HIS Institution is designed for Children of an early
TUage, in the belief that the circumstances of many pa-
rents render such a retreat desirable. It is intended to rem
edy, as far as possible, the evil to which young children,
particularly boys, are exposed from being removed from
the influence of maternal care. It is believed, and not with-
out just reason, that it is the design of Providence that the
care of children, at that early period, shall devolve on mo-
thers, and from that influence they cannot, with safety, be
removed. To supply, as far as possible, this care, the Di-
rectress will devote herself exclusively to the duties of a
mother-committing the instruction of the children to com-
tetent teachers.
Boys will be received between the ages of four and eight,
and instructed in all the elementary branches of English
education. The care of their health, and their religious
instruction, will be constant and permanent objects of at-
tention. Indeed, the hope of usefulness, in the latter par.
ticular, has been the principal inducement of the Directress
of the Institution to undertake so responsible a charge.
The children will attend the services of the Episcopal
Church. The te-reat is in a large and commodious
house in a retired situation, removed from the inhabited
part of the village, of undoubted healthfulness, and within
a few minutes walk of the steamboat landing
Terms, $200 per annum, payable quarterly, in advance.
For a single quarter, $7 This charge includes all the or
dinary expenses.
Further information may be had by addressing the Di-
rectress of the Infants' Retreat, Flushing, L. I.

ference over any others. Volumes one and two contain
Moore's Life of Byron, with his Letters, Journals, anJ all
other Prose Works, including much that is not contained
in the English Edition.
Volume Three, Four, and Five, contain the Poetical
Works, with the exception of Don Juan.
Volume Six contains Don Juan.
The whole collected, arranged, and Notes added, by
Fitz Greene Halleck, Esq.
The arrangement of the work is made with a view to
sell the Life and Prose Works, and the Poems, with or
without Don Juan, or Don Juan alone, separate from each
other.
The present edition of the Works of Lord Byron is of.
feared as more complete than any other ever published. It
is a medium between the voluminous English copy, in
seventeen volumes, and the American in one, with a large
type and fine paper, andit is sold at a price that will come
within the means of all who may desire a library copy.

REVIEW OF THE WEEK.
Livr or Sit WALTER SCOTT, by J. R. Loc
MART. Part I. Phila. Carey, Lea C4. Blanchar
This volume embraces the first thirty-three yea
of Sir Walter Scott's life-1771-1804. It cor
mences with a most interesting auto-biographic
memoir of his early life. Concerning this Memo
Mr. Lockhart observes in his preface:
In obedience to the instructions of Sir Walt
Scott's last will, I had made some progress in
narrative of his personal history, before there wa
discovered, in-an old cabinet at Abbotaford, an a
tobiographical fragment, composed by him in 18(
-shortly after the publication of his Marmion.
This fortunate accident rendered it necessaw
that I should altogether remodel the work which
had commenced. The first chapter of the follow
ing memoirs consists of the Ashestiel fragment
which gives a clear outline of his early life down
the period of his call to the bar-July, 1792. A
the notes appended to this chapter are also by him
self. They are in a hand writing very different
from the text, and seam, from various circumstance
to have been added in 1826."
The following is Sir Walter's picture of his
mily history as sketched in this Memoir:
"Every Scottishman has a pedigree. It is a na
tional prerogative as unalienable as his pride an
his poverty. My birth was neither distinguish
nor sordid. According to the prejudices of m
country, it 'was esteemed gentle, as I was coil
nected, though remotely, with ancient families boe
by my father's and- mother's side. My father
grandfather was Walter Scott, well known i
Teviotdale by the surname of Beardie. He wr
the second son of Walter Scott, first Laird of Rae
burn, who was third s )a of Sir William scott, an
the grandson of Walter Scott, commonly called i
tradition Auld Watt, of Harden. 1 am therefoi
lineally descended from that ancient chieftain
whose name I have made to ring in many a ditt)
and from his fair dame, the Flower of Yarrow-n
bad geneology for a Border minstrel. Beardie, m
great-grandfather aforesaid, derived his cognome
from a venerable beard, which he wore unblemishe
by razor or scissors, in token of his regret for th
banished dynasty of Stuart. It would have bee
well that his zeal had stopped there. But he too
arms, and intrigued in their cause, until he lost a
he had in the world, and, as I have heard, run
narrow risk of being hanged, had it not been fo
the interference of Anne, Duchess of Buccleuc
and Monmouth. Beardie's elder brother, Williar
Scott of Raeburn, my great-granduncle, was kille
about the 8 z of twenty-one, in a duel with Prin
ge of Crichton, grandfather of the present Mar]
Pringle of Clifton. They fought with swords, a
was the fashion of the time, in a field near Selkirk
called from the catastrophe the Raeburn Meadow
spot. Pringle fled from Scotland to Spain, amn
was long a captive and slave in Barbary. Beardie
became, of course, Tutor of Raeburn, as the bhl
Scottish phrase called him, that is, guardian to hil
infant nephew, father of the present Walter Scot
of Raeburn. He also managed the estates o
Makerstoun, being nearly related to that family by
his mother, Barbara MacDougal. I suppose he
had some allowance for his care in either case, amn
subsisted upon that and the fortune which he hac
by his wife, a Miss Campbell of Silvercraigs, in th(
west, through which connexion my father used tc
call cousin, as they say, with the Campbells o
Blythswood. Beardie was a man of some learning
and a friend of Dr. Piteairn, to whom his politics
probably made him acceptable. They had a Tory
or Jacobite club in Edinburgh, in which the con
versation is said to have been maintained in Latin
Old Beardie died in a house, still standing, at the
north-east entrance to the churchyard of Kelso,
about *
"He left three sons. The eldest, Walter, had a
family, of which any that now remain have been
long settled in America:-the male-heirs are long
since extinct. The third was William, father ol
James Scott, well known in India as one of the
original settlers of Prince of WVales's island :-he
had, besides, a numerous family both of sons and
daughters, and died at Lasswade, in Mid-Lothian,
about *
"The second, Robert Scott, was my grandfa-
ther. He was originally bred to the sea ; but be-
ing shipwrecked near Dundee in his triil voyage,
he took such a sincere dislike to that element,
that he could not be persuaded to a second at-
tempt; This occasioned a quarrel between
him and his father, who left him to shift for him-
self. Robert was one of those active spirits to
whom this was no misfortune. He turned Whig
upon the spot, and fairly abjured his father's po-
litics, and his learned poverty. His chief and
relative, Mr. Scott, of Harden, gave him a lease
of the farm of Sandy-Knowe, comprehending the
rooks in the centre of which Smailholm or Sandy-
Knowe Tower is situated. He took for his shep-
herd an old man named Hogg, who willingly lent
* him, out of respect to his family, his whole sav-
ings, about 301. to stock the new farm. With this
sum, which it seems was at the time sufficient for
the purpose, the master and servant set off to
purchase a stock of sheep at Whitsun-Tryste,
a fair held on a hill near Wooler in Northum-


berland. The old shepherd went carefully from
drove to drove, till he found a hirsel likely to
answer the purpose, and then returned to tell
his master to come up and conclude the bargain.
But what was his surprise to see him galloping
a mettled hunter about the race-course, and to find
that he had expended the whole stock in this extra-
ordinary purchase! Moses's bargain of green spec-
taclqs did not strike more dismay into the Vicarof
Wakefield's family than my grandfather's rash-
ness into the poor old shepherd. The thing, how-
ever, was irretrievable, and they returned with-
out the sheep. In the course of a few days,
however, my grandfather, who was one of the
best horsemen of his time, attended John Scott
of Harden's hounds on this same horse, and dis-
played him to such advantage that he sold him
for double the original price. The farm was now
stocked in earnest; and the rest of my grandfa-
ther's career was that of successful industry. He
was one of the first who w(re active in the cat-
tle trade, afterwards carried to such extent be-
tween the Highlands of Scotland and the leading
counties in England, and by his driving trans-
actions, acquired a considerable sum of money.
He was a man of middle stature, extremely ac-
tive, quick, keen, and fiery in his temper, stub-
bornly honest, and so distinguished for his skill
in-country matters, that he was the general referee
in all points of dispute which occurred in the
neighborhood. His birth being admitted aigen-
tle, gave him access to the best society in the coun-
ty, and his dexterity in country sports particu-
larly hunting, made him an acceptable companion
in the field as well as at the table.*
"Robert Scott of Sandy-Knowe, married, in
1728, Barbara Haliburton, daughter of Thomas
Haliburton of Nawmains, an ancient and respect-
able family in Berwickshire. Among other ma-
trimonial possessions, they enjoyed the part of
Dryburgh, now the property of the Earl of Bu-
chan, comprehending the ruins .of the Abbey.-
My granduncle, Robet Haliburton, having no
maleheirs, his estate, as well as the representa-
tion of the family, would have devolved upon my
father, and indeed Old Newmains had settled it
upon him; but this was prevented by the misfor-
tunes of my granduncle, a weak silly man, who
engaged in trade for which he had neither stock
nor talents, and became bankrupt. The ancient
patrimony was sold for a trifle (about 30001.) and
my father, who might have purchased it with
ease, and was dissuaded by my grandfather, who


t attorney have beeh suspected, more or less justly,
of making their own fortune at the expense of their
clients-my father's fate was to vindicate his cal-
ling from the stain in one instance, for in many
cases his clients contrived to ease him of considera-
ble sums. Many worshipful and be-knighted
names occur to my memory, who did him the honor
to run in his debt to the amount of thousands, and
to pay him with a lawsuit, or a commission of
bankruptcy, as the ease happened. But they are
gone to a different accounting, and it would be un-
generous to visit their disgrace upon their descen-
dants. My father was wont also to give openings,
to those who were pleased to take them, to pick a
quarrel with him. He had a zeal for his clients
which was almost ludicrous: far from coldly dis-
charging the duties of his employment towards
them, he thought for them, felt for their honor as
for his ownand rather risked disobliging them than
neglecting any thing to which he conceived their
duty bound them. If there was an old mother or
aunt to be maintained, he was, I am afraid, too apt
to administer to their necessities from what the
young heir had destined exclusively to his pleasures.
This ready discharge of obligations which the
Civilians tell us are only natural and not legal, did
not, I fear, recommend him to his employers. Yet
his practice was, at one period of his life, very ex-
tensive. He understood his business theoretically,
and was early introduced to it by a partnership with
George Chalmers, Writer to the Signet, under whom
he had served his apprenticeship.
His person and face were uncommonly hand-
some, with an expression of sweetness of temper,
which was not fallacious; his manners were rather
formal, but full of genuine kindness, especially
when exercising th-i duties of hospitality. His
general habits were not only temperate, but severely
abstemious; but upon a festival occasion, there
were few whom a moderate glass of wine exhila-
rated to such a lively degree. His religion, in
which he was devoutly sincere, was Calvinism of
the strictest kind, and his favorite study related to
church history. I suspect the good old man was
often engaged with Knox and Spottiswoode's folios,
when, immured in his solitary room, he was sup-
posed to be immersed in professional researches.
In his political principles he was a steady friend to
freedom, with a bias, however, to the monarchical
part of our constitution, which he considered as
peculiarly exposed to danger during the later years
of his life. He had much of ancient Scottish pre-
judice respecting the forms of marriages, funerals,
christenings, and so forth, and was always vexed at
any neglect of etiquette upon such occasions. As
his education had not been upon an enlarged plan,
it could not be expected that he should be an en-
lightened scholar, but he had not passed through a
busy life without observation; and his remarks
upon times and manners often exhibited strong
traits of practical though untaught philosophy. Let
me conclude this sketch, which I am unconscious
of having overcharged, with a few lines written by
the late Mrs. Cockburn* upon the subject. They I
made one among a set of poetical characters which
were given as toasts among a few friends, and we
must hold them to contain a striking likeness, since
the original was recognized so soon as they were
read aloud.
To a thing that's uncommon-
A youth of discretion,
Who, though vastly handsome,
Despises flirtation:
To the friend in affliction,
The heart of affection,
Who may hear the last trump
Without dread of detection.'


Then follows a most interesting account
own first recollections and early sufferings.


of his
The


Memoir goes on-
"Having premised so much of my family, I re-
s turn to my own story. I was born, as I believe,
' on the 15th Au,,ust, 1771, in a house belonging to
my father, at the head of the College Wynd. It
Swas pulled down, with others, to make room for the
e northern front of the new College. I was an un-
, commonly healthy child, but had nearly died in
consequence of my first nurse being ill of a con-
x sumption, a circumstance which she chose to con-
i ceal, though to do so was murder to both herself
; and me. She went privately to consult Dr. Black,
f the celebrated professor of chemistry, who put my
father on his guard. The woman was dismissed,
and I was consigned to a healthy peasant, wh&. is
still alive to boast of herladdie being what she calls
a grand gentleman.t Ishowed every sign of health
and strength until I was about eighteen months old.
One night, I have been often told, I showed greet
reluctance to be caught and put to bed, and after
being chased about the room, was apprehended and
consigned to my dormitory with some difficulty.
It was the last time I was to show such personal
agility. In the morning I was discovered to be
affected with the fever which often accompanies the
cutting of large teeth. It held me three days. On
the fourth, when they went to bathe me as usual,
they discovered that I had lost the power of my
right leg. My grandfather, an excellent anatomist
as well as physician, the late worthy Alexander
Wood, and many others of the most respectable of
the faculty, were consulted. There appeared to
be no dislocation or sprain ; blisters and other topi-
cal remedies were applied in vain. When the efforts
of regular physicians were exhausted, without the
slightest success, my anxious parents, during the
course of many years, eagerly grasped at every
prospect of cure which was held out by the promise
of empirics, or of ancient ladies or gentlemen who
conceived themselves entitled to recommend various
remedies, some of which were of a nature suffi-
ciently singular. But the advice of my grandfather,
Dr. Rutherford, that I should be sent to reside in
the country, to give the chance of natural exertion,
excited by free air and liberty, was first resorted to,
and before I have the recollection of the slightest
event, I was, agreeably to this friendly counsel, an
inmate in the farm-house of Sandy Knowe.
"An odd incident is worth recording. It seems
my mother had sent a maid to take charge of me,
that I might be no inconvenience to the family. But
the damsel sent on that important mission had left
her heart behind her, in the keeping of some wild
fellow, it is likely, who had done and said more to
her than he was like to make good. She became
extremely desirous to return to Edinburgh, and as
my mother made a point of her remaining where
she was, she contracted a sort of hatred at poor me,
as the cause of her being detained at Sandy-Knowe.
This rose, I suppose, to a sort of delirious affection,
for she confessed to old Alison Wilson, the house-
keeper, that she had carried me up to the Craigs,
meaning, under the strong temptationof the Devil, ,
to cut my throat with her scissors, and bury me in
the moss. Alison instantly took possession of my g
person, and took care that her confidant should not
be subject to any farther temptation, so far as I e
was concerned. She was dismissed, of course, and ,
I have heard became afterwards a lunatic.1
"It is here at Sandy-Knowe in the residence of
my paternal grandfather, already mentioned, that I
have the first consciousness of existence ; and I re-
collect distinctly, that my situation and appearance
were a little whimsical. Among the odd remedies 0
recurred to to aid my lameness, some one had re-
commended that so often as a sheep was killed for i
the use of the family, I should be stripped, and
swathed up in the skin warm as it was flayed from e
the carcass of the animal. In this Tartar-like ha- I
biliment, I well remember lying upon the little
parlor in the farm-house, while my grandfather,
a venerable old man, with white hair, used every i
excitement to make me try to crawl. I also distinctly i
remember the late Sir George MacDougal of Ma- ]
kerstounii, father of the present Sir Henry Hay i
MacDougal, joining in this kindly attempt. He i
was, God knows how, a relation ofours, and I still
recollect him in his old fashioned military habit (he a
had been Colonel of the Greys,) with a small i
cocked hat, deeply laced, an embroidered scarlet I
waistcoat, and a light-colored coat, with milk-white
locks tied in a military fashion kneeling on the t
ground before me, and dragging his watch a!on a


ing the name of Cumberland with more than infant
hatred. Mr. Curie, farmer at Yetbyre, husband of
one of my aunt had been present at their execu-
tion; and it was probably from him that I first
heard these tragic tales which made so great an
impression on me. The local information, which
I conceive had some share in forming my future
taste and pursuits, I derived from the old songs
and tales which then formed the amusement of a
retired country family. My grandmother, in whose
youth the old Border depredations were matter of
recent tradition, used to tell me many a tale of Watt
of Harden, Wight Willie of Aikwood, Jamie Tell-
fer of the fair Dodhead, and other heroes-merry-
men all of the persuasion and calling of Robin Hood
and Little John. A more recent hero, hut not of
less note, was the celebrated Diel of Littledean,
whom she well remembered, as he had married her
mother's sister. Of this extraordinary person I
learned many a story, grave and gay, comic and
warlike. Two or three old books which lay in the
window seat were explored for my amusement in
the tedious winter days. Automathcs and Ram-
say's Tea-table Miscellany were my favorites, al-
though at a later period an odd volume ef Jose-
phus' Wars of the Jews divided my partiality.
"My kind and affectionate aunt, Miss Janet
Scott, whose memory will ever be dear to me,
used to read these works to me with admirable pa-
tience, until I could repeat long passages by
heart. The ballad of Hardynute I was early
master of, to the great annoyance of almost our
only visitor, the worthy clergyman of ihe parish,
Dr. Duncan, who had not patience to have a sober
chat interrupted by myshouting forth this ditty. Me-
thinks I now see his tall thin emaciated figure, his
legs eased in clasped gambadoes, and his face of a
length that would have rivalled the Knight of La
Mancha's, and hear him exclaiming. "One may as
well speak in the mouth of a cannon as where that
child is." With this little acidity, which was na-
tural to him, he was a most excellent and benevo-
lent man, a gentleman in every feeling, and altoge-
ther different from those of his order who cringe at
the tobies of the gentry, or domineer and riotat those
of the yeomanry. In his youth he hod been chaplain
in the family of Lord Marchmont-had sees Pope
-and could talk familiarly of many characters who
had survived the lAugustan age of Q.ueen Anne.
Though valetudinary, he lived to be nearly ninety,
and to welcome to Scotland his son, Colonel Wil-
liam Duncan, who, with the highest character for
military and civil merit, had made a considerable
fortune in India. In (1795) a few days before his
death, I paid him a visit, to inquire after his health.
I found him emaciated to the last degree, wrapped
in a tartan night-gown, and employed with all the
activity of health and youth in correcting a history
of the Revolution, which he intended should be
given to the public when he was no more. He
read me several passages with a voice naturally
strong, and which the feelings of an author then
raised above the depression of age and declining
health. I begged him to spare this fatigue, which
could not but injure his health. His answer was
remarkable. "I know," he said, "that 1 cannot
survive a fortnight-and what signifies an exertion
that can at worst only accelerate my death a few
days ?" I marvelled at the composure of this re-
ply, for his appearance sufficiently vouched the truth
of his prophecy, and rode home to my uncle's (then
my abode), musing what there could be in the spirit
of authorship that could inspire its votaries with
the courage of martyrs. He died within less than
the period he assigned-with which event I close
my digression.
"I was in my fourth year when my father was
advised that the Bath waters might be of some ad-
vantage to my lameness. My affectionate aunt,
although such a journey promised to a person of her
retired habits any thing but pleasure or amusement,
undertook as readily to accompany me to the wells
of Bladud, as if she had expected all the delight
that ever the prospect of a watering-place held out
to its most impatient visitants. My health was by
this time a good deal confirmed by the country air,
and the influence of that imperceptible and un-
fatiguing exercise to which the good sense of my"
grandfather had subjected me; for when the day
was fine, I was usually carried out and laid down
beside the old shepherd, among the crags or rocks
round which he fed his sheep. The impatience of
a child soon inclined me to struggle with my infir-
nity, and I began by degrees to stand, to walk, and
o run. Although the limb affected was much
shrunk and contracted, my general health, which
vas of more importance, was much strengthened
)y being frequently in the open air, and, in a word,
who in a city had probably been condemned to i
>opeless and helpless decrepitude, was now a
healthy, high-spirited, and, my lameness apart, a t
sturdy child-non sine diis animosus infans. t
The illustrious author of this memoir gives a very t
partial account of his school performances. It ap- 1
)ears that he was first placed in a private school in r
dinburgh, and shortly afterwards under a domes- t
ic tutor; at eight years of age he was sent to a r
publicc seminary, the High School of Edinburgh,
espeoting which he thus records his own impres- t
ions:
"In [1779] I was sent to the second class of the
grammar School, or High School of Edinburgh, t
ien taught by Mr. Luke Fraser, a good Latin i
:holar and a very worthy man. Though I had C
received, with my brothers, in private, lessons of
.atin from Mr. James French, now a minister of ~
ie Kirk of Scotland, I was, nevertheless, rather l
behind the class in which I was placed both in years t
nd in progress. This was a real disadvantage, s
nd one to which a boy of lively temper and talents, h


eight to be as little exposed as one who might be 0
ess expected to make up his lee-way, as it is called. h
'he situation has the unfortunate effect of recon- 9
ling a boy of the former character (which in a b
posthumous work I may claim for my own) to hold- h
ng a subordinate station among his class-fellows- a
which he would otherwise affix disgrace. There e
also, from the constitution of the High School, a
eitain danger not sufficiently attended to. The
oys take precedence in their places, as they are S
killed, according to their merit; and it requires a s
ng while, in general, before even a clever boy, if
ie falls behind the class, or is put into one for which
e is not quite ready, can force his way to the situ- b
ion which his abilities really entitle him to hold.
uit, in the meanwhile, he is necessarily led to be fi
he associate and companion of those inferior spirits a
ith whom he is placed ; for the system of prece- o
once, though it does not limit the general inter- -
>urse among the boys, has nevertheless the effect S
f throwing them into clubs and coteries, according r
D the vicinity of the seats they hold. A boy of t,
)od talents, therefore placed, even for a time, 13
nong his inferiors, especially if they be also his a
ders, learns to participate in their pursuits and t<
objects of ambition, which are usually very distinct 1,
rom the acquisition of learning; and it will be
ell if he does not also imitate them in thatindiffer-
ice which is contented with bustling over a lesson,
D as to avoid punishment, without affecting supe-
ority, or aiming at reward. It was probably E
ving to this circumstance that although at a more C
Ivanced period of life I have enjoyed considerable c
cility in acquiring languages, I did not make any f(
great figure at the High School-or, at least, any
:ertions which I made were desultory and little to
Depended on.
"Our class contained some very excellent schol- ir
s. The first Dux was James Buchan, who re- fr
ined his honored place, almost without a day's ti
terval, all the while we were at the High School. sl
e was afterwards at the head of the medical staff ir
Egypt, and in exposing himself to the plague k
fiction, by attending the hospitals there, display. P
d the same well regulated and gentle, yet deter- hi
ined perseverance, which placed him most wor- '
ily at the head of his schoolfellows, while many 01
ds of livelier parts and dispositions held an infe- w

vallo) were my friend David Douglas, the heir

"Mr. father did not trust our education solely to
our High School lessons. We had a tutor at home,
a young man of an excellent disposition, and a la-
borious student. He was bred to the Kirk, but un-
fortunately took such a very strong turn to fanati-
cism. that he afterwards resigned an excellent liv-
ing in a seaport town, merely because he could not
pursuade the mariner of the guilt of setting sail of a
Sabbath-in which, by the bye, he was less likely
to be successful, ceeteris'paribus, sailors, from an
opinion that it is a fortunate omen, always choose
to weigh- anchor on that day. The calibre of this
young man's understanding many be judged by
the following anecdote; but in other resp cts he
was a faithful and active instructor; and from
him chiefly I learned writing and arithmetic. 1
repeated to him my French lessons, and studied
with him my themes in the classics, but not clas-
sically. I also acquired, by disputing with him,
for this he readily permitted, some knowledge of
school-divinity and church-history, and a great ac-
quaintance in particular with the old book describ-
ing the early history of the Church of Scotland,
the wars and sufferings of the Covenanters, and so
forth. I, with a head on fire for chivalry, was a
Cavalier; my friend was a Roundhead; I was a
Tory, and he was a Whig. I hated Presbyterian,
and admired Montrose with his victorious High-
landers; he liked the Presbyterian Ulysses, the
dark and politic Argyle; so that we never want-
ed subjects of dispute, but our disputes were al-
ways amicable. In all these tenets there was no
real conviction on my part, arising out of acquain-
tance with the views or principles of either party;
nor had mv antagonist address enough to turn the
debates on such topics. I took up my politics at
that period, as King Charles II. did his religion,
from an idea that the cavalier creed was the more
gentlemanklike pursuasion of the two.
Mr. Lockhart gives the following particulars of
Sir Walter's connection with the Speculative So-
ciety of Edinburgh, and of his first acquaintance
with Mr. Jeffrey :-
On the 4th January, 1791, Scott was admitted
a member of the Speculative Society, where it had,
long before, been the custom of those about to be
called to the bar, and those who, after assuming the
gown, were left in possession of leisure by the soli-
citors, to train or exercise themselves in the arts of
elocution and debate. Scott's essays were, for No-
vember 1791, "On the Origin of the Feudal Sys-
tem;'. for the 14th February, 1792, On the Au-
thenticity of Ossian's Poen.s;' and, on the llth
December of the same year, he read one 'On the
Origin of the Scandinavian Mythology.' The se-
lection of these subjects shows the course of his
private studies and predilections; but he appears,
from the minutes, to have taken his fair share in
the ordinary debates of the Society,-and spoke, in
the spring of 1791, on those questions, which all be-
long to the established text-book forjuvenile spec-
ulation in Edinburgh:-'Ought any permanent
support to be provided for the poor?' Ought there
to be an established religion?' 'Is attainder and
corruption of blood ever a proper punishment?'
'Ought the public expenses to be defrayed by
levying the amount directly on the people, or is it
expedient to contract national debt for that pur-
pose ?' Was the execution of Charles I. justifi-
able?' 'Should the slave-trade be abolished?'
In the next session, previous to his call to the bar,
he spoke in the debates, of which these were the
theses :-'Has the belief in a future state been of
advantage to mankind, or is it ever likely to be
so?' 'Is it for the interest of Britain to maintain
what is called the balance of Europe?' and again
on the eternal question as to the fate of King
Charles the First, which, by the way, was
thus set up for re-discussion on a motion by
Walter Scott.
" He took, for several winters, an ardent interest in
this society. Very soon after his admission (18:h
January 1791,) he was elected their librarian ; and
in the November following he became also their sec-
retary and treasurer; all which appointments indi-
cate the reliance placed on his careful habits of busi-
ness, the fruit of his chamber education. The min-
utes k ept in his hand-writing attest the strict regu-
larity of his attention to the small affairs, literary
and financial, of the club ; but they show also, as
do all his early letters, a strange carelessness in
spelling. His constant good temper softened the
isperities of debate ; while his multifarious lore,and
the quaint humor with which he enlivened its dis.
play, made him more a favorite as a speaker than
iome whose powers of rhetoric were far above his.
"Lord Jeffrey remembers being struck, the first
night he spent at the Speculative, with the singular
appearance of the secretary, who sat gravely at the
bottom of the table in a huge woollen night cap ;
and when the president took the chair, pleaded a
)ad toothache as his apology for coming into th t
worshipfulassembly in such a"portentous machine."
Se read that night an essay on ballads, which so
much interested thiniew member, tlat he requested
,o be introduced to him. Mr. Jeffrey called on him
iext evening, and found him" in a small den, on
,he sunk floor of his father'd house, in George's
square, surrounded with dingy books," from which
hey adjourned to a tavern, and supped together.-
Such was the commencement of an acquaintance,
vhich by degress ripened into friendship, between
he two most distinguished men of letters whom Ed-
nburgh produced in their time. I may add here the
descriptions of that early den, with which I am fa-
!ored by a lady of Scott's family. 'Walter had soon
iegun to collect out-of-the way things of all sorts.
le had more books than shelves ; a small pain-
ed cabinet, with Scotch and Roman coins in it, and
o forth. A claymore and Lochaber axe. riven him


by old Invernahyle, mounted guard on a little print
f Prince Charlie; and Broughton's Saucer owas
ooked up against the wall below it.' Such was the
erm of the magnificent library and museum of Ab
otsford ; and such were the new realms' in which
e, on taking possession, had arranged his little par-
phenalia about him' with all the feelings of nov-
Ity and liberty.' Since those days the habits of
fe in Edinburgh, as elsewhere, have undergone many
changes ; and the convenient parlor,' in which
3cott first showed Jeffrey his collections of min- i
trelsy, is now, in all probability, thought hardly
good enough for a menial's sleeping-room.
And here, to-day, ends our literary notice, taken
Jodily, except the heading, from a London paper,

PROPOSED DINNER TO GENERAL SCOTT.-At a d
meeting on the 5th inst. of the subscribers to the 0
)inner proposed to be given to General Scott,
!ORNELIUS W. LAWRENCE being called to the T
hair, and JAS. G. KINa named as Secretary, the
allowing letter from Gen. Scott was read:
NEW YORK, May 4, 1837. t(
Gentlemen,-Early last month I accepted the
ivitation to a public dinner which you and other i
endss did me the honor to tender me. In a few d tys, tl
ihe embarrassments of this great emporium became tl
iuch, that I begged that the compliment might be a]
definitely postponed. You, however, were so
ind as to hold me to my engagement, and to ap-
oint a day for the meeting, which is now near at si
and. In themean time, the difficulties in the corn- te
nercial world have gone on augmenting, and many
& my friends and friends' friends, here and else-
here, have been whelmed under the general ca- S
amity of the times.

THE NEW YORK COMMITTEE RETURNED.
The Globe says, "the New York committee
delegated to visit this city, to lay before the Presi-
dent the complaints of the merchants against the
administration, and to seek redress for grievances,
had an audience yesterday. They explained in
writing, the objects of their mission. The Presi-
dent responded to their address, in writing, this
morning. The reply, we understand, was brief
and explicit."
Since the above was in type,
We understand that the Sub-Committee which
proceeded to Washington by direction of the meet-
ing of merchants, returned this morning, and that
another meeting will be called for Monday evening,
when a full report of their proceedings will be given.
The answer of the President reserves the subject of
suits upon bonds for consideration. In respect to
the withdrawal of the Specie Circular, and an im-
mediate convocation of Congress, he has given a
decided refusal.
We have no room for comments today, other than
to say, and to say emphatically, KEEP COOL.

INSOLENCE OF THE ARGus.-This insolent mer-
cenary, that lives and thrives upon the wages of
party prostitution, publishes the annexed article:
Mr. Van Buren and the Distress sub- Committee of
Fifteen.-The interview between Mr. Van Buren
and the sub-committee of "fifty merchants," will
probably be somewhat like that between Qlueen
Bess and the men of Coventry, which was as fol-
lows. They addressed the CQueen thus:
We men of Coventree
Are very glad to see
Your gracious majesty,
Good Lord! how fair you be !
To which her O.ueenship replied:
Her gracious majesty
Is very glad to see
You men ofCoventree,
Good Lord! what fools you be! Q.
Laying aside the indecency at such times of such
unfeeling sneers, it cannot but be remarked that
this imputation, even though in jest, to Martin Fan
Buren, of a royal nature! and royal prerogatives,
may possibly, like the celebration of the birth day
of that successful demagogue, heretofore duly chro-
nicled in the columns of the Argus, be looked upon
as a feeler of the public pulse. So rapid has been
the demoralization of public opinion within the last
eight years, that nothing now must be set down too
bold for demagogues in power to attempt.

The tone in which the Evening Post replies to
our notice of its remarks on Mr. Biddle's interview
with the President, is more indicative of political
intolerance, and blind party rage, than we are injhe
habit of seeing out of the columns of the Globe
or the Argus.
The Post speaks of its "feeling of scorn at the
absurd conceit of Mr. Biddle in visiting the Presi-
dent with the idea of being consulted by him re-
specting the financial condition of the country ;"
and then adds, "that the attempt to represent him
as a person whose advice was worth asking, or
worth following in the present emergency, is either
a deliberate insult to the community or the fruit of
a pitiable delusion."
In another paragraph, we have this opinion of
Mr. Biddle's capacity:
Mr. Biddle has neither the capacity to suggest,
nor the power to carry into effect, any measure of
relief for the existing difficulties. His system of
finance is made up of petty expedients and low cun-
ning; a broker's clerk might learn it by a two
years' apprenticeship in Wall street.
Now, considering that Mr. Biddle has passed
many years of a life not now short, at the head of
the largest Banking Institution in the country;
that he is admitted to be a man not wholly desti-
tute of capacity ; that his own fortunes and repu-
tation are at stake upon his conduct; and that-
whether justly or not, is immaterial to this issue-
he is certainly looked upon by the largest portion
of our commercial and trading community, with
favor and confidence-it does not strike us as very
presumptuous that Mr. Biddle should feel himself,
or that others should think him, qualified to offer to
the President of the United States, if he should de-
sire it, some well considered views of the existing
derangement of affairs, its causes and its remedies.
On the other hand, that the President of the U.
States, a lawyer by profession, and little conversant
with matters of commerce or finance, but called by
his office to decide upon measures deeply involving
both, should, from any cause, have neglected a fit-
ting opportunity of consulting a gentleman tho-
roughly versed and experienced in these matters,
does strike us with special wonder.
Of the Post's opportunities or qualifications to
pass such judgment, as it does, on Mr. Biddle's ca-


pacity as a financier, on "his petty expedients and
low cunning," we have nothing to say, for we know
nothing. Its opinions may be justified by large gen-
eral knowledge, and practical acquaintance with
the details of business-or they may take their hue
from
," Pale Envy withering at another's praise,
Hating the excellence it cannot reach,."
However this be, we are quite sure of one thing, I
hat considerate men of all parties-who look upon
he President as a trustee for the people, and not as
a superior personage who may rightfully shroud f
himself in mystery, and in the plentitude of his own s
iancied wisdom, or in the confidence of his own fan- '
ied power, "scorn" the councils and co-opera.ion r
f men his equa's in all respects-will feel that by e
he conduct of Mr. Van Buren, in this instance, a I
eep wound has been given to the constitutional the. 9
ry of an elective and responsible President. C
f
THE ACT AUTHORISING ASSOCIATIONS FOR PRI- v
ATE BANKING, has, it will be seen, as was antici- e
ated in this paper, been killed in the Senate. C
It is a part of the tactics of the honest Regency I
o seem to comply with the popular voice, while, c
i fact, they habitually set it at naught. Hence v
ie Assembly was permitted to pass the bill, with h
ie knowledge that the more compact and manage-
ble forces in the Senate, would strangle it.
How much longer will this people submit to


until we hear further.

Another passage at arms of exceeding credit to
the dignity of the Senate of New York, has occur-
ied between Mr. Young and Mr. Maison. The
Evening Journal merely alludes to it, but enough is
said to show what it was.
This Mr. Mlaison, by the bye, was the selected
tool, and he is just of the calibre to make a mis-
chievous one-conceited, ignorant and pragmatical
-to knock the banking associations bill in the
head.
MAJ. GATES.-The finding and sentence of the
Court Martial, in reference to this time-worn offi-
cer, (honorably acquitting him,) have been approv-
ed by the acting President, and the Major is di-
rected to "resume his sword and join the second
regiment of artillery, to which he has been ap-
pointed."
So the little fellow did not "follow the footsteps,"
as pledged-a deflexion, by the way, we note with
pleasure. The minion refused to sustain the wan-
ton and malignant tyranny of his master in strik-
ing from the roll without trial this veteran soldier.
This is another of the gathering demonstrations of
the award which posterity will pass upon the
character of Andrew Jackson. The patched up
creature of his will even is forced to reprobate his
conduct; what will honest, impartial and indepen-
dent men do ?-[Richmond Whig.]

HON. C. C. CAMBRELENG.
Sir,-From not seeing you in your places of ac-
customed resort, 1 was not aware that you had re-
turned from your annual visit to your plantation in
North Carolina. I must, therefore, be excused for
not giving you an earlier welcome among your adop
ted constituents. You find them, sir, something
changed from the moment when they first selected
you as their commercial representative. New York
is no longer the exchange of the United States.-
Her streets have not now the same busy aspect.-
Her merchants do not look with the same sanguine


expectations to the future. Her manufacturers and
mechanics view their deserted shops with despon-
dency, and even those who keep up their establish-
ments, are filled with doubt and anxiety as to the
neans of paying their laborers. Her traders are
daily yielding under the pressure, and failing with
unquestionable securities in their hands. Her la-
borers without employment are seeking their 'for-
runes in other States, or listening to doctrines which
each that relief is only to be obtained by pillaging
lour stores and banks. There is no longer the
stream of payments flowing in from the country,
which, in ordinary years, gladdened the heart of the
merchant at the return of spring. The domestic t
exchanges of the country have been broken up, and
New York is falling a victim to the policy of the I
government Distrust is in every countenance, and
dismay in every heart. Still, sir, such as you now t
ind us, we bid you welcome to view the work to n
which you have so largely contributed. The own-
rs of real estate bid you welcome to their stores
occupied by bankrupt tenants. The store-keepers 1
welcome you to their shops, no longer frequented by '
customers. The merchants extend to you such L
welcome as becomes men who have been prostrated
by the policy of the government. The ship owner 1
points to his vessels lying idle at the docks, and f
vainly regrets that he is effectually shut out, by the (
efforts of his own representative, from the colonial a


Icn hypocritical, corrupt and shameless task-mas- trade, which is so prosperously carried on by the


ers ?

tate induced the Governor to convene a special

LEGISLATURE OF NEW YOKIC*
IN SENATE.-Friday, May 5.
Safety Fund Banks.
Mr. Armstrong from the committee on banks,
introduced a bill in addition to the act to create a
fund for the benefit of the creditors of certain mo-
nied corporations, and for other purposes. [The
bill provides, that whenever the Chancellor, upon
application of the Attorney General, or the Bank
Commissioners, shall have granted an investiga-
tion, to restrain the ordinary proceedings of any
banking corporation which is subject to the Safety
FundLaw, the Chancellor is empowered, upon the
certificate of one or more of the bank commis-
sioners, to make an order upon the comptroller au-
thorizing him to take such measures as he may
deem necessary for the immediate payment of the
ordinary bank bills or notes of such banking corpo-
rations then in circulation, out of the bank fund then
paid and invested.
It authorizes the Comptroller to apply any mo-
nies belonging to the Safety Fund, except such as
may be necessary to satisfy prior claims thereon,
to the immediate redemption of the bills in circula-
tion, for the purpose of preventing a loss to the
bill holder.
Any monies belonging to the Bank Fund which
may be applied to the payment of such notes or
b\lls with the interest thereon, shall be repaid to the
Treasurer of the State out of the proceeds of the
property and effects oi such corporation. This
law is to apply whenever the legislature shall re-
peal the charter of a banking corporation-in all
such cases the chancellor, bank commissioners and
comptroller, shall respectively possess and exercise
the like powers, in all respects, as are above spe-
cified and conferred.]
The bill was laid on the table, and ordered to be
printed.
Mr. L. Beardsley, from the committee on fi-
nance, introduced a bill authorising the appoint-
ment of an additional clerk in the Treasurer's of-
fice-the salary to be paid out of the income from
U.S. deposits. [The bill was introduced at the
suggestion of the Comptroller.]
Mr. Tracy, from a majority of the select commit-
tee appointed to investigate the matter in relation to
Mr. Young selling stock in the Waterford Bank,
made a report, entirely exonerating Mr. Yonng from
any improper conduct. The report states that the
testimony shows the stock was worth what it was
sold for by Mr. Y.
Mr. Maison, the chairman of the committee, made
a counter report. It reviews the testimony, and
draws the conclusion that Mr. Young was guilty of
duplicity.
Mr. Young made some remarks in reply to the
arguments contained in Mr. Maison's report. He
charged Mr. M. with misrepresenting the testimo-
ny, and with acting dishonorably through the whole
investigation. He said if that Senator could, by
means of a moral diving bell,descend into the depths
of moral pollution in his own bosom, it would be a
feat in comparison with which the descent of.'Eneas
into hell was a holiday.
Mr. Y. was called to order.
Mr. Young-If his remark was out of order, it
was classical.
Mr. Maison replied and argued that his report
was founded upon the true construction of the tes-
timony taken. He concluded by thanking his God
that he had never been indicted asapublic nuisance,
as the Senator from the 4th had.
Mr. M. was called to order.
Both reports were laid on the table, and ordered
printed.
adjournment.
Mr. L. Beardsley, offered a joint resolution,
that the Legislature adjourn on the 11tlh inst. in-
stead of the 16th as heretofore adopted.
Mr. Tracy 4oped the resolution would lie on
the table today. He had seen a letter from a very
distinguished gentleman, which expressed the hope
that the legislature would-not adjourn immediately,
as they might be called to act upon some subjects,
which were of paramount and vital importance.
The resolution lies on the table.
The committee of the whole then took up the
bill, which originated in the Senate, to authorize
private banking.
The question before the committee was the
motion of Mr. Maison, to strike out the enacting
clause.
Mr. Tracy addressed the committee in support
of the bill, avowing himself the drawer of it, and
vindicated it against the objections urged by its
opposers in a speech, powerful in eloquence and ar-
gument.
After he concluded, Mr. J. P. Jones addressed
the committee in opposition to the principles of the
bill.
Mr. Tracy replied.
The motion to strike out was carried-14 to 10.
The motion to strike out the first section of the
bill from the Assembly on the same subject,was also
adapted-15 to 9.
In the Senate, the report of the committee, was
adopted by the following vote:
Ayes-Messrs. Armstrong, L. Bea rdsley, Down-
ing, Hunter, Johnson, H. F. Jones, J. P. Jones,
Lawyer, M'Lean, Mack, Maison, Paige, Powers,

We copy the following paragraphs from the
Pensacola Gazette of the 22d ult.
At the house of a Mrs. Boorhoulse, in the upper
part of this city, on Wednesday night last, a man
named Cyrus Hunt was shot by one of two persons
named Charles Hersbil and Thomas Swinderman,
both Germans. We are sorry to say that Hunt
lived but a few hours after he was shot. Hersbil
and Swinderman are in custody, and will be tried at
the next term of the Superior Court, to be held on
the first Monday of next month.
,We understand that on Saturday last, eight or
ten of the fugitive Creek Indians came to Lumber-
ton, on Black Water River, about thirty miles
'rom this city, to purchase supplies, and after they
hiad done trading, and when they were going away,
t was determined by the whites there to detain
them. The Indians fled, and one of them was shot
n the leg. Immediately on finding himself wound-
ed, he drew his knife and cut his own throat. We
ire informed that this Indian, thinking himself
mortally wounded, threw the knife with which he
had attempted to put a period to his own existence
to his little son, about ten years old, and it is sup-
posed directed him to cut his throat also. The
boy was in the act of doing so when the knife was
wrested from him. We regret that we cannot
heicre terminate onr account of this unfortunate af-
fair. We have heard that bfter the Indian had
cut his throat, and before he was dead, the whites
put a rope around his neck and dragged him under
Sraft of lumber lying in the river, and thus put an
end to his life. If this be true, we cannot find
language sufficiently strong to mark our indigna-
tion at the unjustifiable transaction. For the honor
ofthe white man we hope it is not true. If it he
rue, the tribunals of the country must look to it.

NORWICH, CONN., May 3.
At about 2 o'clock this morning, a fire broke out
in the Sash and Blind Factory of Messrs. Hooker
& Rice, which was totally destroyed, with most of
its contents, comprising a large quantity of very
valuable machinery. The flames soon communi-
cated with the building used as a Screw manufac-
tory, which was also rapidly consumed. Most of
the contents 3of the latter, however, were saved.-
We have heard no estimate of the entire loss.-

FIRE IN DETROIT.-On the morning of the 27th

Woodward Avenue, near the river, in Detroit, and
before it could be got under, destroyed that build-
ing, as also the warehouses of Messrs. J. L. Whi-
ting & Co. and several groceries and other small
tenements, between the place of its origin and the
steamboat Hotel, where the progress of the fire was
finally arrested. Upwards of twenty buildings.
great and small, but chiefly of the latter, were laid
in ruins by this fire-which has made a large num-
ber of poor families houseless.-[Cleveland Daily
Gazette of the 28th.]
AMERICAN OFFICERS IN THE TURKISH SERVICE.
-A letter in a London paper, dated Alexandria,
March 4, says:
The Government here has received intelligence
that the Grand Seignor has determined to employ
American naval officers in the command of his fleet,
and that measures have already been taken to
carry this resolution into effect. If Mahmoud Ali
should come to the same determination, the com-
bined fleets of Turkey and Egypt would then pre-
sent a formidable front against such a naval power
as Russia, whose fleet at present is little better
manned and efficient than theirs, and not so well
paid, and who would thus be placed decidedly at a
disadvantage."
REMEDY AGAINST ANTs.-Accident has furnish-
ed an excellent recipe for destroying ants. A mer-
chant, whose warehouses were infested by these
destructive insects, remarked on a sudden that they
had deserted one particular room; and observation
having convinced him that the circumstance was
caused by a barrel of fish oil, which had been pla-
ced there, he tried the experiment of placing some
of the oil round the plants in his garden, when he
found it produced the effect of driving the ants
from the place in a few hours.-[French paper.]

POSTSCRIPT.

One o'clock.
[From the .Albany Jlrgus, Extra, May 5-4, P. M.\
We understand that the operations of all the
banks at Buffalo will by this time have been sus-
pended by injunction, issued at the instance of the
Bank Commissioners, on the ground of alleged vi-
olations of charter by each of them.
It is deeply to be regretted that any thing should
occur to render proceedings against any of the banks
necessary at this time, when there are so many
other circumstances calculated to agitate the public
mind. Mr. Stebbins, one of the Commissioners,
who has lately visited these banks, is now in the
city, and we understand from him, that neither of
the institutions is proceeded against on the ground
of insolvency, and that he has no apprehension that
the public, or the safety fund, can in any event sus-
tain any loss by them.
On inquiry, we learn that the course of pro-
ceedings by the court in such cases, is in the first
instance to issue a temporary injunction, restrain-
ing the operations of the bank, except receiving


payments, until a short day appointed for the bank
to show cause why a permanent injunction should
not issue, and that in this instance, cause is to be
shown before the Chancellor on the fourth Monday
of the present month.
We indulge the hope that these banks will be
able to show sufficient cause to prevent further pro-
ceedings against them, and in the mean time hope
that no sacrifices will be submitted to by the hol-
ders of bills, which we have no doubt are abund-
antly safe, and that the other banking institutions
of this state will continue to enjoy, as we have no
doubt they deserve, the public confidence.
The names of these banks, three in number, are,
the Commercial Bank of Buffalo, the City Bank of
Buffalo, and the Bank of Buffalo.
A bill was introduced into the Senate yesterday,
providing for the immediate payment out of the
Bank Fund, of the bills of any bank whose opera-
tions were suspended by the Bank Commissioners.
This bill was framed, with reference to the Buffalo
banks, and will doubtless become a law today. So
that there is no cause for alarm or sacrifice among
the holders of these bills.
United States Bank stock fell to-day to 98-two
per cent. under par, and four per cent. below the
lowest price of yesterday. Utica Railroad went
up. In other stocks not much variation.
The return of the Committee from Washington
without any hope of relief, produces much exasper-
ation of feeling.

"A CONCISE TREATISE ON BOOK-KEEPING,
elucidating the Principles and Practice of Double Entry,
and the Modern Methods of arranging Merchants' Ac-
counts. 2nd edition ; revised, enlarged, and greatly in
proved ; to which is added, a CHAPTER ON EQUA-
TION OF PAYMENTS, A TIME TABLE, &c." I vol
pp. 200.
[From the Boston Evening Gazette.])
MERCANTILE BOOK-KEEPING.-The manner in which this
art is frequently taught, conveys a very imperfect idea of
the practice of merchants. The great difference between
heory and practice-between the study of an art and its
appcatiuon to practical use, is too well known to need re-
main; and we think Mr. Foster's plan-by connecting sys-
tematical book-keeping with actualtransactions-possesses
advanr.tages worthy the consideration of all who wish to
acquire the forms and modes of business in a thorough and
effectual manner.
His long experience in thIe counting house, and skill as
a penman, are circumstances which qualify Mr. Foster in a
peculiar manner lor the duties ot his profession.
*** The design of the work is to exhibit a view of Book
keeping as actually practised among the well-informed
merchants, and to furnish learners with a text-book so
clear il its illustrations-3 as to be easily understood, and yet
so comprehensive as to afford all the information required
for practical accountants. It contains the latest improve-
ments in the art, and will be found a useful guide to the
learner, the merchant and the man of business.
[From the Boston Atlas. J
This is decidedly the best treatise on Book-keeping
which we have seen. It is simple, concise and well ar-
ranged. Mr, Foster has confined flmseltf to a plain ex-
planation oi ?he art, as practised in mercantile establish.
ments, and we warmly recommend the result of his labors
to the public.
[From the N. Y. Mercantile Advertiser.]
"The author, who is a practical accountant, has dis-
Wlayed an extensive knowledge of the subject, and has
produced a work which is of infinite value to those who
have yet to obtain a knowledge of Double Enir). In point-

E trance of Flushing Bay, Long Island, opposite St.
Paul's College, (the new establishment of the Rev. Mr.
Muhlenbultgh,) 2J miles from Hallett's Cove and Hurl-
gate ferry.
This place has been known for many years as Fish's
Point, having formed part of the estate of the late Samuel
Fish, and is bounded on the north by the East River, or
Long Island Sound, on the west by land of Samuel Pal-
mer, Esq., on the south by a highway and land of Hon.
Thomas B. Jackson, and on the east by Flushing Bay.
The situation, soil, and surrounding advantages, render
this location one ofthe most desirable ever offered for Im-
provement in the vicinity of New York.
The land is elevated in the centre, sloping gently to the
waters of the Sound and Flushing Bay, and commanding
an extensive and varied prospect. On one hand lies the
Bay, with the village of Flushing, and the surrounding
farms and country seats; on the opposite shore uf the Bay
is the College and its Chapel, now in progress; to the west
is seen the village of Hallett's Cove, Hurlgate, with the
shipping and stoamboataeonstantly passing, with the cities
of New York and Brooklyn in the distance ; in front ex-
tendsthe Sound, bounded by the highly improved farms
and villas of Westchester,while the Palisadoes rising into
view on the Hudson complete the scene.
The soil is unsurpassed in fertility, and is particularly
adapted to gardening.
Thefacilities of approach are equally great, either by
land or water, three ferries being within a quarter to half
an hour's ride, and the Flushing steamboats passing within
speaking distance, several times daily, while a dock tor
their landing might be built at a trifling expense.
Fishing and fowling abound in the vicinity of the pre
mises.
The land will be sold either entire, or in lots to suit pur-
chasers, and on favorable terms. For farther information
apply to the subscriber, with whom a map of the pro-
perty may be seen. OBADIAH JACKSON,

U COOKING AND WARMING APARTMENTS
J WITHOUT WOOD OR COAL.-The extensive
sale, and the increasing demand for "Barnum's Compound
Heater," together with the numerous flattering certificates
presented by those who have used them, fully confirm the
opinion first entertained by the proprietors, that this inge-
nious apparatus would prove eminently useful, simply in
heating apartments, especially in the seasons of Spring
and Autumn. For this purpose alone, they undoubtedly
surpass any thing hitherto introduced. But to cap the cli
max, the inventor has brought them to such perfection, as
not only to accomplish that object in the most admirable
manner, but to perform the various operations of cooking.
In its improved form, it presents a beautiful heater,
which may be placed in any part of a room, and if occasion
requires, may easily be carried about the house so as to
warm different apartments with one heater, and at meal
times it may be changed into a COMPLETE COOKING
APPARATUS, with which cooking in all its branches may
be expeditiously andeconomically performed, and this too
in any part of a house, without regard to chimnies or fire-
places. For families, therefore, who have but little room,
or inconvenient kitchens, or who find it difficult to procure
suitable aid in this branch, the Compounu Heater must
prove an invaluable article, for in many instances it may
supersede the necessity of depending upon such insufficient
or troublesome aid we are sometimes obliged to employ.
With thisnitoaratus a good fire may be made either for
heating rooms or for cooking, in theshort space of five min
utes, simply by lighting the lamp, which may be graduate.
ed at pleasure to any required degree, or entirely stopped
in an instant. Thus a suitable degree of heat may be
created to meetthe sudden changes of the weather ii, the
Spring and Autumn, without the inconveniences -rtending
coal fires, and through the Summer season the same appa
ratus will be found quite as valuable for cooking, ironing,
&c. Not only the space occupied by wood or coal may be
saved, but the dirt produced in using them may thus be
avoided. Not the least particle of dirt or smoke Is formed
in the operation of the Compound Heater.
Numerous certificates and specimens of the various forms
-( the Compound Heater may be seen at the office, 155

rF1HE TRUE POMADE DIVINE.-The great use-
.t fulness ol this most excellent remedy is so well
known to all who have applied it, that no encomium is
necessary ; and to those woo are yet unacquainted with
its virtues, atrialin the following cases will be its best
recommendation. It is good for all sorts ofpains, swell-
lngs,bruises occasioned by falls or otherwise, and will
pr entthe many bad consequences of such accidents, for
ca,.cer before it is broke, sore breasts, stiff neck, gangrene.
It will retain its virtues many years, and is therefore very
useful to travellers. Forsale by

UPERFLUOUS HAIR-That bane of female beau-
ty, whether on the forehad, neck, or, still more un-
sightly,, the upper lip, may bWectually removed by afree
use of
ATKINSON'S DEPILATORY.
Its operation is instantaneous,removing the hair without
the least approach to pain, and leaving the skin whiter and
softer than before. By twice using the Depilatory the roots
of the hair are usually destroyed, so as to require no fur-
ther application of it. No bad consequences from its use
need be apprehended, as it may be used on an infant's skin
without any bad effects.
The advertiser is prepared to warrant every bottle sold
by him, to operate effectually, and to be perfectly innocent
in its effects. Sold wholesale and retail by

RRIS TOOTHIWASH.-This is by far the most plea-
sant and effectual remedy ever yet discovered for
diseased teeth, spongy gums, and unplLasant odor of the
breath. The valuable recommendation obtained from
Dentists, the most eminent in their profession, is sufficient
evidence of its inestimable worth. Being composed of
substances innocent in their operation, it is impossible that
any injurious effects can follow its use. It is designed to
be used with a brush, and will be found preferable to a
powder. It produces a beautiful whiteness on the teeth,
and by its astringents qualities, prevents the gums becom-
ing spongy, and the teeth loose. It has been found very
serviceable to use the wash at night, just before retiring to
rest-this method is recommended by physicians and dent-
ists, as all articles of food which might accumulate during
the day are removed, and the mouth kept through the
night in a clean and sweet, healthy state.
That the public may kripw the estimation in which the
"Orris Tooth Wash" is held by those who are the best
judges, certificates have been obtained from the following
medical gentlemen, and accompany each bottle-Drs. E.

sed so long, and is so well and favorably known, that it is
unnecessary to say much concerning it. The celeority it
has gained, has induced the proprietor to put it up in a
style commensurate with the demand, and those who may
be afflicted with any of those complaints and feel disposed
to use it, may rely on its proving harmless, pleasant and in
fallible. It is put up neatly in tin boxes, and that all who
need may try it, it is sold 25 cents the box. For sale at

profound attention, viz--Lues Veneria Scorbutus, Sca*u-

great. His access astonishing. In many thousands o
cases committed to his care, of all grades and every degree
of malignancy, he has speedily restored his patienteto

He cautions the unfortunate againstthe abuse of mer-
cury. Thousands are annually mercurialized out of life
See that your case is eradicated, not patched up. The
learned Dr. Buchan emphatically ooserves-." Married
persons, and persons about to be married should be par
ticularly cautiousofthose afflictions. What a dreadful in-.
heritance to transmit to posterity." Persons afflicted with
'protracted and deplorable ,ases need not despair of a
complete recovery, by applying to Dr. Home. Becen
affections, whep local, are, without mercury, extinguish,4
ed in a few days. What grieves the Dr. is, that many
afflicted, instead of taking his salutary advice, have re
course to advertised nostrums, where there is no response
'ility, and the compounders unknown; by such means
throwing away their money, (where they vainly hope to
save,) and ruin forever their constitution.
Persons who may have contracted disease, or suspect
latent poison, are invited to make application to Dr
HORNE, at his Establishment, No. 268 Greenwich

The TURKISH DYE has been made and sold these
twenty years, by Mr. Atkinson, in London, and its reputal
tion there,is greaterthan ever.
In this country it is well known, and is daily supersed
ing the use of otherpreparations for the purpose, composed
of deleterious materials, and must eventually take the
place of every other composition of the same nature. Its
operation is almost magical, being applied to the head at
night before going to bed, and on rising in the morningthe
transformation is complete, trom gray to brown, orfrom
red to black. The skin meantime suffers no change, eithe
from discolorment, eruption, roughness, or other cause
Its use is attended with little inconvenience and no iii con-
sequences. Sold wholesale and retail by

"Pulmonary Balsam" and others.

HE :GENUINE HYGEIAN VEGETABLE
UNIVERSAL MEDICINES, of the British College o
Health.
"Hypocrisy is the tribute which vice has ever paid to vir.
tue."
The excellence and efficacy of these medicines in relieve
ing and removing all the maladies of mankind, and the
beauty and value of the simple theory on which they are
founded, could not perhaps be more strongly proved than
by the unexampled effrontery, and bold but unfounded as-
sumptions of those who so perseveringly and at a vast ex.
pense endeavor to impose on the public feeble and unwor
thy imitations.
Since the legal decisions which have establishedthe claim
of the Genuine Hygeian Medicines to protectionfrom direct
counterfeiters, numberless are the schemes of unprincipled
innovators to evade the just penalties of the law, and
scarcely a newspaper can be taken up thatdoes not teem
with whole columns of garbled extracts from Mr. Mori-
son's publications, and by thus unblushingly assuming him
ideas and even his very words, vainly strive to rob him (f
his original discovery, by which he rescued himselffrom a
series of suffering of 35 years continuance, and led to the
foundation of the sound but simple system of the hygeian
physiology; whereas, had not Mr. Morison propounded
this system to the English community, and had not its
lovely truths spread with a rapidity commensurate with
its importance, through Great Britain, the continent ofEu
rope, the nations of the East, and the United States ofAme
rica, and, in fact, having agencies and advocates establish]
ed in every civilized nation of the earth, neither their names
nor their Ignorant pretensions would ever have been heard
of
The publications of Mr. Morison and his coadjutors are
comprised in sixteen volumes, a reference to which wil
readily satisfy any inquirer ot the correctness of this state-
ment.
At the urgent requestof many friend, it has been deter-
mined to supply the genuine kyeian medicines in lower
priced boxes than heretofore, tniat the wants and wishes o
that class of the community may be met, who, while dis-
liking to make applications for gratuitous relief to our dliv
pensary, yet do not wish, or have not the means of laying
out a larger sum at once. The pills, therefore, may now
be obtained of the various agents established in every town
in the United States, in boxes at 25 and S6 centseach, as
well as in packets of 1, 2 and 3 dollars.

FE|1 A CARD TO THE LADIES.
.JL HE eubscriber's opinion of the female mind and char-
acter is too far exalted to suppose for a moment that the
ladies of this city and elsewhere, to whom this Card is po.
likely addressed, can be cajoled or flattered to patronize
him, but wishes to address himself to their good sense
only. They are respectfully informed, that "Badeau's
celebrated Strengthening Plasters," were prepared with
special reference to their favor, and they are most ear-
nestly recommended to such as are troubled with coughs,
colds, asthmas, &c. He is confident that if it were possi-
ble to obtain the names of the ladies who have received
benefit by wearing the beautilul plasters, he could present
an array, which, for modest worth, intelligence and resa
pectability, would far outweigh his highest recommend
nations. They are spread on the most beautiful, soft and
pliable scarlet, pink and fawn colored lamb skin; will
not soil the whitest linen, and may be worn by the most
delicate female in all situations, with ease and comfort for
one month.
