The building possessed many claims
on the admiration of people of taste ; for
the walls and ceilings of the principal
rooms had been ornamented by the pen-
cil of one of the most distinguished
French painters of the present age--the
Iront is of the Moorish order ofarchitec-
ture-but not being a judge of such mat-
ters, I may not speak of its merits. The
edifice is now used for public assemblies
and exhibitions, and it is to be regret-
ted, that the general darkness of the
walls, &c ndrendered it necessary to white-
wash and destroy the beautiful paintings
with which they had been decorated.
The notoriety of Mrs. Trollope and
her Bazaar, induces numerous travellers
to Cincinnati, to visit this building; and
as it is the residence ofilts present amia-
ble occupant, his family is often not a
little embarrassed by the prying curiosity
of many, who, not content with a gene-
ral survey, intrude even into the bed
chambers and the kitchen. Of the

Mrs. Trollope and family-her hus-
band excepted-left England in compa-
ny with Mr. Hervieu, the artist, above
alluded to, and they all arrived at New
Harmony on the Wabash, shortly after-
wards. She had been induced to this
journey by the representations of Mr.
Robert Owen, and the famous MIiss
Wright-who persuaded her that a new
paradise was about being realized in
America. Upon the breaking up of that
establishment, she went to Cincinnati,
where her singular manners and perso-
nal appearance soon attracted general
The day on which I first had the hon-
or of beholding Mrs. Trollope, was cer-
tainly a very unfavorable one. In the
midst of a drizzling rain with a tattered
umbrella over her head, and holding her
clothes at a goodly distance out of the
mud, 1 saw a large woman of ordinary
appearance moving up the street, with
strides which would have done credit to
the stoutest bog trotter in Ireland.
Who can that be? I instantly in-
quired of a friend. That is Mrs. Trol-
lope, he replied, and a more ap-
propriate name certainly could not he
given her. In Indian file, behind her,
were her son and two daughters-the
eldest rather good looking-but the young-
est had a mouth that would have graced

were all talking at the top of their voi-

your petticoats? "La, ma, 'tis no use,

are such boors." "That's very true,

passed on, and little did I think at that
time that Mrs. Trollope was writing a
criticism upon the manners and customs
of the Americans.
Sometime afterwards I met her in
company, and was agreeably surprised
at the intelligence and colloquial powers
which she evinced.
Whatever may be said of her in other
respects, her abilities as a writer ought
not to be disputed. The authorship of
her book has been attributed to Basil
Hall, but from what I have known of
her talents, she had no need of the aid
of her brother in prejudice and misre-
presentation. She converses fluently in
several languages, and her children are
all educated and possessed of remarka-
She had not long been in Cincinnati

which Mr. Hervieu was implicated, was

She made many attempts to regain a
respectable standing-such as by giving
dinner parties, and private theatrical en-
tertainments, to which the higher clas-
ses were invited, but all failed ; and that
she has denounced the citizens of Cin-
:innati as wanting in taste and refine-
ment, few will wonder at, knowing
he disappointments and mortifications
which she must have experienced.
Mrs. Trollope is about fifty years of
age and her face indicates a fondness

Hxrttisos.-Oftall the organs of Harrisonisii
not one has yet urged a tangible argument in favor
of his advancement to the Presidency. He is not
presented to the people as possessing a single quali-
ty, which would render him useful in, the station.
The utmost that is said of him is that he ha seen in
active military service; but as it is unluckily known
that the reputation which he thus acquired is of a
very doubtful character, the warmest admirers of
martial glory cannot support him on that account.
He is merely a nominee-a rallying point for the
touted and discomfitted fragments of faction, pos-
sessing no merits of his own, and is put forward
for no other reason than that the opposition wanted
a head, and'not being stocked with popular men,
selected him as a desperate choice. The political
leaders of whiggery are cast aside, for they cannot
be separated from the principles which they sup-
port, and which are justly odious; and so North
Bend is dragged forth in the vain hope that the
glitter of his regimentals may draw off attention
from the party! pushing him forward, and enable
him by such deceptive means to win his way to
the Presidency. Such is the compliment paid by,
the' opposition to the intelligence of the American
The New York Evening Post has the following
sensible remarks upon this subject, which, as they
are mildly expressed, and give Harrison all the
credit to which he is entitled, and perhaps more
than is justly his due, are particularly recom-
mended to the notice of the opposition. They
will there see the humiliating position in which
they place themselves, in the fruitless effort to de-
feat the cause of Van Buren and Johnson.
"The friends of General Harrison-political sup-
porters we should have written, for friends they are
not-who thus expose the poor old gentleman by set-
ting him up, as a French showman sets a macaw on
a pole-the political supporters of General Harrison
are still in a quandary about his qualifications for
the Presidency. There are some very zealous and
industrious, and a few ingenious men among the
journalists, who beat the drum for him every morn-
ing and evening, and the wonder is, that after con-
sidering the matter for several months, they have
nothing more satisfactory to say to those whom
they wish to recruit in his service. When they are
asked "Is Harrison fit for the Presidency!" the an-
swer is, "Sir, he is an available candidate; we can
use hi:n to make head against Van Buren." When
it is objected that he is weak, irresolute and ineffi-
cient, the objector is told, "Sir he is a very good sort
of a man." Ask whether he will not become, if
elected, the pliant, unreflecting tool of the combined
factions that set him up, and you are answered,-
"Sir, he is a son of one of the signers of the Decla-
ration of Independence." But is he capable of form-
ing an opinion on any important subject of govern-
ment! "Sir, he has been for forty years identified
with the interests, the perils, and the hopes of the
west." Has he either sagacity or firmness? "Sir,
he was a long time in active military service." Is
he not a thorough-going bank man, an internal im-
provement man, and a high tariff man? "Sir, he
was not beaten in the last war."
Is this all? Must we have a President of whom
it can libe only said that he is good natured; that he
is the son of one of the signers of the Declaration of
of Independence; that he has lived forty years in the
western country; that he was a long time in milita-
ry service, and that he did not get beaten in the last
war? The testimony of Colonel Johnson is brought
forward to prove this. Colonel Johnson is a man
of the kindest and most generous feelings; he is ever
desirous of putting the characters of men in the most
favorable light possible. We have no doubt that
he would now repeat all he has said. We admit
that Harrison is good-natured-but what is mere
good nature? 'YOUNG shall answer-
"- mere good nature is a fool." '
We admit that he is a son of one of the signers of
the Declaration of Independence. What sort of
qualification is this? The people have tried one of
these sons of the signers, and were tired of him be-
fore the expiration of his first term. We admit
that Harrison has lived forty years at the west, and
that he was long a soldier. He qualified himself
for the Chief Magistracy, we suppose, by marching
.nd countermarching, in the same way that a man
qualifies himself for the business of a watchmaker
by making nails. Finally, as to his not being
beaten in the last war, the explanation is easy-he
had brave men with him; he had with him men ex-
perienced in the dangers and emergencies of a bor-
der lifa, and full of the resources which such a kind
of life gives. With such men to assist, and such
men to advise,-men of equal courage and fore-
sight, Harrison could not have been beaten without
obstinately following some rash plan of his own,
which, it is said, they sometimes prevented him from
After all, there is no evidence offered that Harri-
son is fit for the Presidency."
Valuable Real Estate.-M. Thomas & Son will
hold a sale of Real Estate this evening,at the Phila-
delphia Exchange, including the Arch Street Pri-
son, and other valuable property. See our adverti-
South Sea Expedition.-We learn from the Me-
tropolitan, that the Secretary of the Treasury has
appointed Lieut. WILKES, of the Navy, and for
several years a resident of Washington, as an agent,
to proceed to England, for the purpose of procuring
instruments, philosophical apparatus &c. for the
South Sea Expedition, and in general to collect all
the information to be derived from the expensive
and varied experience of the English in enterprises
of this nature. That paper deems the selection for
thigh duty a very judicious one.
fludden Death.-It is stated in the New Orleans
Advertiser that Capt. ELLIOT, of the ship Rowena,
fell down in Canal street, of that city, on the 14th
inst. and immediately expired. That paper adds:
No other cause than over anxiety and distress of
mind, occasioned by difficulty with his hands, can
be given for this sudden visitation. Capt. E. was
a worthy and esteemed young gentleman, and had
won the regard of many of our citizens. His re-
mains were attended to the 'grave by a numerous
collection of his friends.
Florida.-A letter from a gentleman on the St
John's River, states that the Green Corn Dance of
the Seminoles is over, and that they are expected to
renew their hostilities with vigor. The greatest
consternation prevailed among the settlers on the
St. John's, in consequence of the new devastations
committed by the Indians.
The Floridian of the 16th ult. says :-Arrange-
ments are in progress for an expedition to the
Withlacoochee, as soon as the requisite force can
be assembled. It will be commanded by Gen. Call,
The object is to destroy the growing crops of the
Indians. One thousand mounted nien from Ten-
nessee are expected to arrive here by the 25th inst.
who will be joined by the regulars, and the militia
and volunteers of Florida."

measures must be taken by you. This is the view
of the President."
May 11, 1836 5
Srn-The President is very solicitous that you
should act cautiously in carrying into effect your
instructions, and do nothing which can compromise
the neutral relations of the United States. Your
great objects, as I have before stated, are, to defend
our frontier and to fulfil the neutral obligations of
the Government. If the Indians are not employed
immediately upon the border, there will be no need
of your advancing beyond the territory in the actu-
al occupation of the United States, unless armed
parties should approach our frontier so near as ma-
nifestly to show that they mean to violate our terri.
tory. Such a state of things is scarcely to be anti-
cipated from either of the contending parties in
Texas. But it is otherwise with the Indians. In
the excitement of war they will not be restrained
by boundary lines, but will seek scalps wherever
they can find them. The whole history of the em-
ployment of Indians, in the contests between civil.
ized communities, proves this fact. It was princi-
pally with a view therefore to this state of things,
that you were authorized to cross the line dividing
the country actually in the occupation of the United
States,from that heretofore in the possession of Mex-
ico, if such a measure be necessary for the defence
of the frontier.
But it must impress upon you the desire of the
President, that you do not advance unless circum-
stances distinctly show this step is necessary for the
protection of 'the district of our country adjoining
the scene of operations in Texas. And should you
find it necessary to advance, you will not fail to
communicate to any armed parties in the country
your orders and objects, But you will, under no
circumstances, co-operate with any of them, or suf-
fer any of them to join you, or interfere in any man-
ner with any military operations ip Texas, except
such as may be necessary for self-defence.
Should you pass beyond the above mentioned
boundary line, you will return as soon as the safety
St. Augustine, July 23..
ANOTHER ACTION AT MICANOPY.
Frorn the extreme unhealthiness of the position,
Commander-in-chief has ordered the abandonment
of Fort Drane. The removal of the sick and stores
to Micanopy commenced on the 19th inst. A let-
ter from an officer at the latter post, received by the
commanding officer here on the 21st, states that the
first train was attacked on that evening within a
quarter of a mile of Micanopy by 300 Indians-the
action lasted more than an hour; twelve men were
badly wounded-many horses killed. Capt Ashby
of the 2d U. S. Dragoons, severely wounded through
the neck-and Ass't Surgeon Weightman badly
wounded through the thigh. On hearing the firing,
all the disposable force within the work at Micano-
py, moved out to the support of the escort. Other
results of the loss of the enemy is not stated. There
were 150 sick at the two posts, and many of those
reported for duty were in a feeble and debilitated state.
Since writing the above, accounts have been re-
eeived that the Indian force was 200-that the es.
cort consisted of 80 men, under command of Capt.
Ashby, of the U. S. Dragoons, having a howitzer,
and that the Indians were defeated-several of our
men are mortally wounded.
From the Charleston Courier, July 29.
NEw ORLEANS, JULY 18.-By the schr. Julius
Cfesar, which arrived yesterday, from Texas, we
have information that renders it very doubtful whe-
ther the Mexican army will really prosecute further
operations for the present at least against Texas.
From Texian spies sent for the purpose of recon-
noitering the enemy, it is ascertained that the Mexi-
can army has not advanced, and that its numbers
are continually diminishing by desertion.
The Texians are in "fine spirits," and have no
lack of arms, ammunition and provisions, and with
force sufficient to repulse thethe invaders with great
slaughter. Santa Ana had solicited by letter the ami-
cable interposition of Gen. Jackson, and had con-
veyed to the Mexican Government his opinion,that
the conquest of Texas was impossible, and that the
independence of Texas should be recognized.
The schr Brutus,Capt. Hurd, was at Matagorda,
blockaded by the Mexican brig of war Vencedor del
Alamo,but would soon be relieved by the schrs. In-
vincible, Union, and other vessels that had proceed-
ed there in tow of the steamboat Ocean,for the pur-
pose of capturing the brig. The steamboat was
laden with volunteers, and for her protection there
was raised a breastwork of cotton bales.
The Mexican brig will in all probability fall a
capture to the Texians.
It seems that the Vencedor had been despatched
from Vera Cruz, in order to protect the schooners
Cumanche, Fanny Butler, and Watchman, which
were stored with provisions for the Mexicans. Find-
ing that the Texians had already intercepted the
said vessels, and appropriated their cargoes to their
own use, she very wisely proceeded to take, if pos-
sible, what Texian vessels might fall in her way. It
may not however prove a judicious step.
From all the information received, and which we
believe to be substantially correct, we are firmly of
the opinion that the Mexicans will suspend active
hostilities against the Texians for the summer, and
we shall not prove very bad prophets if it should not
turn out, that their troops will be entirely with-
drawn from the limits of Texas, and the independ-
ence of this Republic fully secured.
CROSSING THE SABINE.
News from the South leaves no doubt that Gene-
ral Gaines, for the purpose of protecting our South-
western frontier from the incursions of the Mexi-
can Indians, has crossed the Sabine, and marched
as far as Nacogdoches, in Texas, where he will tix
his head quarters. In addition to the force at pre-
sent under his command, he will be joined by six
companies of infantry, and three of dragoons, from
Fort Towson, and another body of regulars from
Fort Gibson. It will be remembered that before
his advance, he called upon the States of Louisiana
Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky, each for a
regiment of mounted gunmen, to join him as spee-
dily as possible. The Globe of last evening, in re-
ferring to pushing our forces beyond the line, to se-
cure the safety of the frontier, says:
A few days ago we published an official notice
of Gen. Gaines' despatch, stating that recent acts
of hostility on the part of the Indians were prompt-
ed by their having been advised of the large force
(of Mexicans) approaching Metamoras, and by the
expectation that the Texians would be driven and
the country given up to them;" and calling for mili-
tia from the neighboring States to prevent these
mauraders from approaching our confines, and
transferring the scene of their murders and robberies
from the impoverished confines of Texas into our
own rich frontiers. This was in conformity with
orders of the President, given in consequence of his
knowledge of the Indian character, the moment he
perceived there was to be a war in Texas. He was
aware that the Indians were never known to be neu-
tral when war was afoot; and from the immense
hordes of them within our own and the Mexican
territories of the southwest-their fierce, warlike,
and predatory characters-their being for the most
part horsemen, and capable of making rapid march-
es and sudden incursions fiom a great distance, and
from the general temper of the tribes in consequence
of recent events in the United States, he was sensi-
ble that every precaution should be taken to keep
them aloof from our frontier settlements. Our
treaty with Mexico, too, especially stipulates that
each party shall take all necessary measures to guard
against the hostile moments of the tribes, which
had, at th last advices, already commenced their
murders ia the vicinity of Nacogdoches. With
a view of suppressing these motions and hold-
ing the savages in check, Gen. Gaines has made
his call for militia, and has probably advanced his
regular troops to such position as will give them
greater command over the designs of these indians."
The following are the instructions under which
General Gaines is acting:
Extract of a letter from the Secretary of War to
aIajor Gen. Gaines, dated
July 11, 1836.
"I have received and submitted to the President
your letter of June 7th, together with the report
made to you by Capt. Dean.
"I am apprehensive from the tenor of this report,
as well as from your observations, that the frontier
has too much to fear from the hostilities of the Indi-
an tribes living in Texas. On this subject it is pro-
per to call your attention to the instructions previ.
ously issued to you, and to say to you that if the
conduct of the Indians in Texas threatens the fron-
tier whose defence is entrusted to you, and you con-
sider it necessary, with a view to its protection, to
advance as far as Nacogdoches.you will do so with-
out hesitation. If the authorities of that country
cannot prevent bodies of savages from approaching
our frontier in arms, the necessary precautionary
ble homes, catch the locomotive epidemic, and hur-
ry over the country, exhausting their purses, and
encountering every species of discomfort, under the
impression that as it is fashionable so to do, it must
be delightful. The substitute recommended by the
Sentinel is a good one, and if acted on, cannot fail
to be beneficial in more respects than one.
Some twelve months ago the Sentinel took occa-
sion to bespeak attention to a subject which has no
connexion with politics or news, yet comes home
to the business and bosom of every man-to which
we now recur-the mode of life into which we
Americans are falling. It seems to be dividing it-
self into two compartments-one, the bustle of
town, the other, the still greater bustle of st eam-
boats and railroad cars. Is there no other state? Let
any one go into a steamboat any day and any
where, and see what crowds of men, women and
children are hurrying to and fro, many of whom
know not whither or why, while the immediate vi-
cinities of nine-tenths of these wanderers afford
more health, more pleasure, cheaper and better re-
creation, than are to be found in the distant places
they are seeking. Dr. JoHNsoN's Rambler was
translated into Italian by the title of Vagabond.
We will not apply hard names to our fellow coun-
trymen, especially to our fair countrywoman,though
verily believing that to the latter is much of this
locomotion attributable. But we have heard of a
facetious physician of this city who says wives and
children in July and August are the very -- .
The immediate neighborhood of Philadelphia, (and
of nost other cities,) is deserted for distant places,
hot and uncomfortable journeys, bad beds, high
bills, less wholesome food, violent excitement, and
very often colds and fevers,under the utterly false no-
tion of the aforesaid Dr JOHNSON, that our warmest
welcome's at an Inn. Yes, indeed, warmest with
a vengeance; several in one room, sometimes in
one and the same bed, leaving airy and pleasant
chambers, habitual and agreeable meals, and all the
real luxuries of home, to go mosquito hunting in
the pines of New Jersey, the canal boats of New
York, or to catch crabs in New England: perhaps
to live in log huts in the Alleghenies of Virginia,
while there are excellent residences in the Alleghe-
nies of Pennsylvania, with the same air, superior
scenery and better fare. But to go away, far away,
seems to be the passion, and not only our own
neighborhood, but our own state must be left be-
hind in the vagabonding. We must spend our
time, our money, our flesh-in short, all our sub-
stance-far off, the farther the better,returning with
the fall, pockets empty, pulses high, to sweat once
more in the city. We ask again, is there no other
and better state? and we answer that there is, by
spending more time and less moneywithin a short ride
of the city, where we may have both city and coun-
try every day, minding business, yet taking recrea-
tion daily; never from home, squandering time and
money in taverns; but sowing both where we are
sure of reaping the fruits-on our dwellings. We
gave this hint twelve months ago, and whoever took
it is now richer than he was then. We ventured
to recommend not only a truce to travelling, but
permanent settlements out of, yet near the town,
where hundreds may establish themselves with ma-
nifold advantages to their health, fortune, and well
being altogether. Many are making such settle-
ments. More will follow their example. Distance
is annihilated; there is no such thing. A man in
most callings may reside two, three or more miles
from his place of business in town, and be there as
early and as late as if he slept there. He may re-
side in the suburbs, or farther off, save rent, and
marketing, and enjoy better health by .constant ex-
ercise, while his garden is becoming a lot, and
what he bought by the acre becomes saleable by the
foot. All this and more may be done by spending
on such rational improvements what is now
thrown away in journeys and places gf public
resort. A wave from the South, heaving ith cot-
ton bags and rice barrels, comes deluging upon us
of the middle every summer, sweeping north and
east-and let it sweep. But why should we be
swept along with it? We may stay at home
while they must go from home. To live near their
towns in the summer is death; but to live in the
neighborhood of ours is to enjoy health and com-
fort, provided we live at home. Thousands of the
mechanics and industrious people of Philadelphia
are just now consuming their hard earnings in lo-
comotives, floating hotels and stationary hotels,
coursing about through the dog-days like dogs in a
chase, to come back lean and hungry, poor and nee-
dy, when, by keeping quiet in their own houses,
they might be growing healthy and growing rich,
and either stay in the country all the year, or part
of it, as most agreeable, on much better principles
of Domestic Economy.
In the extremely warm weather, sound discre-
tion should teach us to avoid excitement, and add
as little as possible to the annoyances of the season.
Comfort as well as health appear to demand this;
and to ensure the latter, it is hardly a correct prin-
ciple to superadd a fever of the spirits to the in-
fluence of a July and an August sun, combined
with a derangement of the system, brought about
by a novel course of living, and unusual exposure.
That the locomotive epidemic is not always salu-
tary in its effects, the personal experience of many
can prove; and if our physicians could be prevailed
upon to testify, we suspect it would be found that
a large portion of their autumnal harvest is derived
from repairing the systems of those who have pass-
ed the summer in scouring the country in pursuit
of health. It is by no means uncommon for such
pilgrims to return with a deep-seated cold, with a
fever and ague, or with the seeds of a bilious disor-
der lurking in their systems, the result of their
doubtful method of renovation; so that we in a
great measure agree with the Sentinel, that a per-
manent home is the most suitable place, wherein
to pass the warmest season of the year, especially
when the salubrity of the city and its environs will
not suffer in comparison with that of any other
place. If, however, a change is desired, travel to
it soberly, sit down calmly, and avoid making a toil
of a pleasure.

THE WEATHER, &c.
We do not recollect a season in which North and
Easterly wind prevailed to such an extent as the
present. We find on recurring to the daily record
of the weather,
That the wind was from N. to E. in the month
of March, 16 days.
In the month of April, the same number of days.
In the month of May, 17 days.
In the month of June, 22 days.
And in the month of July, 19 days.
There have been but very few excessively hot
days. The Mercury has generally varied from 65
A remarkable degree of health has prevailed, not
only in this city, but throughout our highly favored
country. There has been no prevailing epidemic
in any part of our land.
There is every prospect that fruit will be abun-
dant, also potatoes and all late vegetables. Rain, of
late, has been abundant and seasonable.
The demand for laborers this season has exceed-
ed all former years, and their wages have been high-
er. No one, either male or female, need go with
a slack meal for want of employ. There will, how-
ever, always be drones in society for the industrious
to support. If ardent spirits were entirely vanished
from the world, there would be but few idlers, few

ROCHESTER, July 25.-Western Fleet.-The
Cleveland papers assert, as an evidence of the great
commercial importance of that place, that one day
last week 48 brigs arm] schooners were at one time
lying at the wharves, exclusive of steamboats. This
was not the result of a stress of weather, but the or-
dinary transactions of business.
The increase of business on our western waters
within twenty years is truly astonishing-and Lake
Erie,within that time, from being a comparative so-
litude,has become thelMediterranean of North Ame-
rica. This change reminds us of the many dry
jokes cracked by the sailors who were transported
from Boston.during the late war to man the fleet
then building at Erie. Having arrived there, they
strolled out to take a view from the shore of the ele-
ment on which they were about to reap laurels of
victory, when one of them in the excitement of the
moment, exclaimed, By --, this is the first time

A person who styles himself an unfortunate
young man," gives an account in the Buffalo Daily
Star of an adventure which he had in going from
Rochester to Buffalo in one of the packet boats.
He was accosted by a fellow of handsome figure,
well spoken, about five feet six inches in height,
of a dark complexion, Roman nose and high fore-
head, wearing a black dress coat, grey pantaloons,
black vest and stock," with whom he held the dis-
course set down in the following narrative.
In the course of our conversation he asked me
where I was going-I replied to the Western coun-
try. To purchase a small piece of ground and fol-
low my business, I answered. He cautioned me
about money, and said notes of some banks were
not current at the west. I asked him which were
the best. He then asked me what kind I was car-
rying. I examined and found they were notes of
the Connecticut and Pennsylvania banks. He said
I should have some difficulty and a large discount
to pay. I then asked what I had better do-he said
get New York City Notes, and if he had them he
would make an exchange, for as he was travelling
back and forward, it would make no material dif-
ference with him. Thinking this an act of kind-
ness, and him a gentleman, I counted out $350 of
my hard earnings, which required two years hus-
bandry to gather, and in return for it he gave me
seven fifty dollarbills, nearly new, which I thanked
him for and carefully put up in my pocket book,not
suspecting for a moment I had been duped. But
to my utter astonishment I find the whole amount
is not worth a cent; for the bills are all of a broken
bank. Thus am I deprived of the means of travel-
ling any farther, and to add to my grief, have- a
young delicate wife, very near her confinement."
Conspiracy in France-iLate "Arrests.-Since
the discovery of a clandestine manufactory of pow-
der in the Rue De L'Oursine, the police has not
ceased to carry on the most active investigations,
which have yielded further results. It was disco-
vered that several persons mysteriously came to the
houses Nos. 22, 24 Rue Dauphene, and brought
with them every time various articles enclosed in
boxes, trunks or parcels. As soon as a certainty
was obtained of cartridges being made on the se-
cond floor the house was surrounded on all sides.-
Yesterday, at about three P. M. the police commis-
sioners, with a strong party of agents, commenced
active and minute investigations. They seized
from 8,000 to 10,000 balls, together with moulds,
machines, and materials of various sorts for making
cartridges. The quantity of balls and cartridges
which could be made with tbe materials seized is
rated at 200,000 more. When the seizure was ef-
fected a pistol was discovered intended to defend
the entrance of the manufactory. The porter, Hum-
frey, his wife, and her brother, were forthwith ap-
prehended. Several police officers were stationed
inside and outside the house, to arrest such persons
as might present themselves. A person namedGe-
nin, born in Auvergne, son of the member of the
member of the convention of that name, was soon
arrested. He described himself as a student in
medicine. Another student, named Fayard, on
whom papers were found, was also apprehended.-
Upon further information three other students,
Guillemin, Grooters, and Cabet, were seized. The
latter is relative to the ox-Deputy of that same
name. This morning further searches have been
made in the house where Fayard lived. The 85
roooms of that house have been explored, and in'
one, occupied by a friend of Fayard, two pistols
have been discovered. That friend has been also
arrested. A few hours after another arrest took
place in the person of a student named Bruys at
the Hotel du Bresil, Passage Dauphine. Lastly,
two more persons have been seized, Brumer,a wine
dealer in the rue Castiglione, and Bernard Martin.
The latter had come to the former's house, as if to
apprise him of what was passing in the rue Dau-
phine.-Gazette des Tribunaux.
On Friday, in pursuance of various warrants issu-
ed both by the Prefect of Police and Ithe Judge d'
Instruction, numerous arrests, wholly of a political
nature, were effected in this capital.-Constitution-
ANIMAL MAGNETISM.-It seems that the people
down east, are getting fully convinced of the power
and utility of Animal Magnetism. The admini-
stration of this wonderful remedy has, if we may
believe all we hear,drawn teeth from persons, while
under its influence, without their knowing it or
,feeling any pain. .Some of the newspapers appear
inclined to adopt a belief in its good effect, and we
presume the old controversies will henceforth arise
on a subject, that philosophical men had flattered
themselves was forever settled. The greatest Magne-
tiser ever known, was a person by the name of
Mesmer, and the first convinced the world of his
powers by sundry wondrous operations performed
in the case of a young lady, Mademoiselle Oester-
line. [We perceive the Boston Professor finds a
young lady the most agreeable subject for his de-
Mesmer for a while had some success atVienna,
but German philosophy was a little too much for
him, and he went to Paris. Here he succeeded for
a time, in completely turning the heads of the fash-
ionables. His house became the resort of the rich
and gay, and he the subject of general conversa-
tion. In short he was gathering wealth and fame,
when some inquisitive men of science, who could
not understand from his theory, oi mode of operat-
ing, (not a very delicate one either) the philosophy
of his treatment, sought to obtain, through the in-
fluence of Royalty,the secret of his method. Mes-
mer, though offered a pension, and various other
inducements, could not be brought to terms, but
when, the negotiations became rather pressing, went
off without ceremony.
Berthollet, the Chemist, who had been one of
Mesmer's pupils, came out with an advertisement
denouncing him as a quack. A committee of in-
vestigation, under the direction of the Academy of
Science, immediately took place, and Bailly,Frank-
lin, and Lavoisier, were members. Mesmer refused
to explain, but a pupil of his, Deslon, unfolded the
whole system of "convulsions, crises and cures."
The report of the committee was full and. satisfac-
tory in its developments, and concluded with the
proposition, that there is no proof of the existence
of this magnetic power, except from its effects on
the bodies of the patients, and these effects can be
accounted for, and be produced without any mag-
netic manipulation, that these manipulations are
of themselves, insufficient to produce the assigned
effects, if made without th. patient's knowledge,
and that "therefore imagination will, and ani-
mal magnetism will not account for the results pro-

5. Avoid dust, smoke, and vapors of every kind
which excite pain or uneasiness of the eyes.
6. Avoid rubbing or fretting the eyes in any
manner, and wiping them with cotton handker-
7. Avoid much exposure to cold northwest or
8. Avoid all spirituous and heating liquors, rich
and highly seasoned food, and every species of in-
temperance, all which invariably injure the eyes
and impair the sight,
Some illustrations of and additions to the above
rules have occurred to me, which I send herewith.
The time we experience the most sudden change
is in first opening the eyes in the morning. A
sleeping room therefore should be protected from
the glare of light by blinds or curtains, so managed
as to soften and diffuse the light and not to exclude
it wholly, or allow it to struggle through a few
small crevices. An east window is of course to be
avoided if possible. The paper or walls of a sleep-
ing room should be green or blue, at least in part.-
Yellow is in general a painful color, to many more
so than white. Twilight is a natural provision to
soften the change produced by the alteration of light
and darkness. This provision however, is availed
only to a small extent, in consequence of our artifi-
cial arrangements. Those who have it in their
power to give rest to their eyes during the evening
twilight, employing it in conversation or walking,
will find it more agreeable and useful than to
continue reading or writing from afternoon into
evening without intermission.
Those who live in countries which are covered
with snow during a large part of the year, almost
always lose their sight in old age. There seems to
be a peculiarity in the influence of reflected
light, independent~of its intensity, which is injurious.
The very common practice of shading lamps for
reading, so as to throw the whole light down upon
the surface of the book, is founded upon false prin-
ciples. It is better that the eye should be in the
light and not receive it in one direction merely.
The caution respecting cold winds is well found-
ed, but in general it is to be remarked that the in-
fluence of the air is beneficial. To cover the eyes
occasionally with goggles, or any other contrivance
which excludes the air, not only does harm by keep-
ing the organ too warm, but interferes with those
actions of atmospheric oxygen on the surface which
are peculiarily essential to this delicate organ. No
one can fail to have remarked, that an eye which is
habitually covered from the air, loses all its brilliancy
and expression, acquiring a dull and clouded ap-
pearance, as if the proper fluids which usually keep
its surface clear and bright, ceased to be secreted

ST. Louis, 10th July, 1836.--But to return from
this long digression, once more to St. Louis. The
view of this city, some six or eight miles in sailing
up the river, is truly picturesque and delightful.--
But than these appearances,woman was never more
deceitful! It may be truly said that no city in this
Western country appears so well at a distance, and
none so ill on a close view-none so inviting as you
approach it on the river, and none so- repulsive as
you enter it from the shore. The streets (having
been laid out by the French) are generally very
contracted and dusty, and the buildings, almost
without exception, of a very inferior order. So un-
favorable does this city appear in contrast with
Cincinnati, that one can scarcely believe, in going
from one to the other, that they were built, or are
inhabited by the same race of beings. Decidedly
the best buildings here are the warehouses-in
many of which a very large and lucrative business
is transacted. Indeed, viewed in no other than a
mercantile light, and St. Louis is very near the
same thing its "cracked up to be;" and must even-
tually be the New York of the whole Western
country. It will of course have many rivals, but it
is not "in the nature of things" that they should
ever be triumphantly successful, or tend in any
great degree to retard its growth and prosperity.
For the present, however, and perhaps, many
yeais to come, Louisville, Ky. must be the crack
city of the West. There is no place that has in.
creased so much in wealth and population (as as-
certained by a recent census) is upwards of 25;000
-4,000 of which are of the last year's growth:-
As regards style of architecture and ornamental
taste, it is very little ahead of St. Louis, and a deal
of a distance behind Cincinnati. It can boast of
one thing, however-a new public house, called
the "Galt"-with much reason and propriety.-
There is nothing of the kind West of the Alleghany
mountains, that begins to compare with it; and, for
neatness, comfort, good fare and good management,
nothing East, that excels it. The landlords informed
me that they feed, on an average, three hundred in-
dividuals a day, and consume, diurnally, forty gal-
lons or one hundred and sixty quarts of milk!-
which, costing 20 cents per gallon, makes an annu-
al item of expense over $2000. Milk is not only
abundant there, and drank almost to excess, but of
an unusually nutritious, creamy quality. It is this
superabundance and nutritious quality of the milk,
as I hold, rather than the climate and limestone
water, that makes the Kentuckians such a huge,
I have said the Louisvillians can boast of one
thing-they can of two: the best public house in
the West, and the tallest man in all christendom.
They challenge, and well they may, not only this,
but any other country, to exhibit what they can-
a youth 19 years of age, measuring 7 feet 64 inches
in height! I have seen him, and without knowing
his length, should judge it to be nearer 10 than 7
feet! I conversed with him, but with difficulty.
Standing on the ground and conversing with a man
in a steeple, or holding converse with the spirits of
the clouds, is no easy matter. He informed me
that at the age of 12, he was unusually small-and
growing 34 inches the last year, he is sensible of
being still on the increase. His patriotism who can
doubt? He stands, or stood, when I saw him, a
living monument to his country's greatness. He is
not corpulent but rather slender-hence he appears
taller than he really is-" but really" he is enough,
as the Lord knows. Add, or rather superadd, any
to a man that has attained to anything like his
height, and inches appear almost like feet.
The foundation of a City.-The Galena Ga-
zette gives the following description of the location
of a new city, destined, mayhap, to become, in pro-
cess of time, a second Cincinnati or Louisville. It
is difficult to read the reference to the fate of the
once powerful tribe of Indians to whom it formerly
belonged, without a feeling of commiseration and
melancholy. We fear that it cannot be many
years before the monument beneath which the bones
of the Chiefs and Warriors will repose, will be the
only evidence of their existence.
"ROCK ISLAND CITY"
This is the name of a new town, now being sur-
veyed into lots, on and below the Rapids, at the
mouth of the Rock River, Rock Island county, in
this State. There are many peculiar and interest-
ing facts connected with this town site, other than
its great commercial, agricultural, and manufactur-
ing facilities. It is situated on a point of land be-
tween Rock River and the Mississippi; and is the
first and only landing place from the Mississippi
to the Rapids. It is on this site that Black Hawk
and his fathers lived for more than a hundred years.
It is here that hundreds of chiefs and thousands of
warriors of the Sac Nation, sleep in the dust and
whiten the ground. This ground, for more than a
century, supplied this Nation of Braves and their
families with corn, and their horses and cattle with
pasture; and this was the Indlun village,so dear and
invaluable to Black Hawk and his people, that he
and they recently preferred hazarding the certain ca-
lamities of a war with the United States, rather
than yield it up to the possession of the whites. In-
deed this is the very place to obtain the possession
of which cost the American people one million and
a half of dollars, and sixty-four lives. These are a
few of the interesting facts connected with Rock
It is also situated in the centre of the most heal-
thy and fertile sections of thie West-commanding
an almost illimitable extent of inland, commerce up
Rock river and down the Mississippi, and the great
advantage of a water power inexhaustible, and ea-
sily available. Coal is here obtained in great abun-
dance, which will not only cheapen and facilitate
manufacturing, but will become a leading article of
commerce, in a country like this, where timber is so
This purchase of about 600 acres was recently
made by Levi C. Turner, Esq. of Otsego county,-
New York, and others, of George Davenport, Esq.
of Rock Island. Mr. Davenport, however, still re-
tains an interest, and we are happy to learn has e-
served a public square, in the centre of which ar to
be entombed the scattered bones of the Sac chiefs
and warriors,and a suitable monument to their me-
money, erected at his own expense. In this age of
city making and speculation, we know of no place
more peculiar and interesting in its history, or com-
manding and desirable in its location.
THE ETE.-The following directions in regard
to the care of this important organ are from an ex-

book of Health and Medicine.
1. All sudden changes from darkness to light
and the contrary should be avoided as much as pos-

half six of these large animals, from five to seven
feet in length, were caught, despatched,and hauled
into the boat,amidst their fierce struggles,the splash-
ing of the water, and their strong breathing, which
almost amounted to bellowing. One of them when
brought up to the gunwale of the boat, made a sud-
den leap, and threw his whole length into the bot-
tom of the boat, knocking down and overlaying
some of the party, and striking the leg of one of
them with his tail so violently as almost to break
the limb. About twelve others were hooked, but
broke away. The sharks seem to enjoy the sport
almost as much as those who were engaged in catch-
ing them. They came around the boat in great
numbers, and seemed eagerly to wait their turn of
taking the bait.
At a place called East Bank, about a mile and a
half to the east of Faulkner's Island, where the wa-
ter is deeper than near the shore of Goose Island,
sharks of a larger size are often caught. One of the
party, a few years since, hooked in this place, a
shark twelve feet in length, which dragged his boat
for the distance of half a mile. Another boat com-
ing to his assistance, the enormous creature was
hauled up, despatched, and brought to land.-

In the western section of Massachussetts, both
sides of the Connecticut river, there is an interval
where no stones are found, and but little material
for fencing. A traveller is struck by finding large
fields of grain, grass, &c., directly on the main road,
in open common, with no enclosures. Such is the
universal respect to the rights of property, that any
injury to the crops is rarely known; even the cattle,
as a traveller shrewdly remarked,seeming to partake
of the moral atmosphere of the country. He said
he had always understood that the farmers on the
Connecticut river were the most honest people in
the world, but he did not know before that the same
could be said of their cattle.-Boston Daily edvo-

Shark fishing is an amusement which is some-
times practised on our coast, but is confined we be-
lieve, to a few amateurs. A large hook is provided,
about a foot in length, and baited with a black-fish,
the skin of which is stripped off, in order that the
whiteness may attract the notice of the shark. To
the hook is fastened an iron chain, about three feet
long, and to the end of this is attached the line.-
The bait is let down in the water to the depth of
about twelve feet. If the fish is near, he seizes it.
with all the greediness of a modern monopolist, and
darts away with it. The person holding the line
suffers him to run a rod or two with the hook, and
then pulls it back with a strong and sudden jerk, in
order to fasten it in the huge mouth of the creature,
He is then pulled up to the boat, where his head is
brought firmly against the gunwale, and another
person standing near with a club, belabors him on
the head until he is lifeless, and he is then drawn
into the bottom of the boat. The strength and vio-
lent struggles, and loud blowing of the shark, to-
gether with the idea of destroying creature so dan-
gerous to man, make the sport exceedingly anima-
ted and exciting.
A party from this city were landed the other day
from the steam-boat Lexington at Faulkner's Island.
for the purpose of enjoying this amusement.-
Faulkner's Island,situated off Guilford point, as our
readers doubtless know,belongs to the United States;
and its four acres of land, rising about forty feet
above the water, are crowned with a light-honse
kept by Mr. Kimberly, an obliging friendly man,
who received his visitors with much hospitality.-
They were taken in a boat to Goose Island, belong-
ing to Mr. Kimberly,lying at the distance of a mile,
with about a quarter of an acre of coarse vegetation
upon it, among which myriads of gulls make their
nests. On the approach of a strange boat, these
birds rise in a cloud, which fairly darkens the sky,
wheeling about in circles and filling the air with
their screams. They are never suffered to be shot
on account of their use to such as navigate the sound
in foggy weather, when their screaming, or the
flight of such of them as happen to come in sight,
serves to indicate the place of the island they in-
habit. The boat was anchored off Goose Island,
the baits were prepared and dropped into the water,
and as it fortunately happened that a shoal of sharks
were near the spot, the sport was pursued with the
greatest success. In the course of an hour and a

W. A. MARTIN, Clerk.
services almost beyond human reward. He has
done more to prosper the poorer and laboring class-
es than almost any individual in the nation-far
more than their warmest gratitude can ever repay.
He has toiled for them in the hour of need; he has
been with them in every adversity; he has stood by
them and aided them in every struggle. And he
has served his country, not only in her legislative
halls, but in her tented fields. He is not only a
statesman, but a soldier, and a brave one, too; one
who deserves to be called a HERO, Look at his
" battle-battered frame," and ask yourself whence
hese decripid limbs?" Look at your country's histo.
ry, and let unvarnished truth suffice for an an-
swer! You will there find his name and his deeds
covered with unfading honors!
Notwithstanding his unparalleled exertions in ci-
vil stations, to benefit his country and his constitu-
ents; notwithstanding the imperishable renown
which his heroic valor has shed upon American
arms; notwithstanding all these achievements, and
the incomparable blessings which his wisdom and
his patriotism have conferred upon his country and
his kind; yet there are those of his political enemies
so bereft of honesty, and so morally debased, as to
raise the hand of persecution against him,and in the
vindictive bitterness of their disappointment, to as-
sail him with a spirit and a feeling which is shamda
ful to mankind Those who lend themselves to
such unjust and dishonorable purposes, will ere
long repent their wickedness, if not their ignorance
and folly. It is not a characteristic of the American
people, to forsake a friend when their services are
needed: it is not the character of the-people of this
country to be the idle spectators of a sanguinary
conflict waged by a cabal of heartless politicians,
against a truly great and virtuous citizen. No;-
there is a sympathy and a gratitude inherent in the
breast of every American, that will not permit the
unwarrantable persecution of the true patriot and
incorruptible statesman. And when the last great
blow is to be struck, this feeling will burst forth in
a torrent of just indignation, and sweep from before
it every vestige of shameless ingratitude.-Colum.
