- great ones. Besides, I trusted, that so
y long as the powers of the mind existed
, in the vigor I felt them in, that much of
; what might be called latent vitality, ex-
y isted in the body ;-then I set myself to
i think upon those nerves which preside
t over the action of the heart-their ori-
1 gin, their course, their distribution, their
1 relation, their sympathies. I traced
t them as they arose in the brain, and
e tracked them till they were lost in mil-
lions of tender threads upon the muscles
- of the heart. I thought, too, upon the'
f lungs as they lay flaccid and collapsed
' within my chest-the life blood stagnant
1 in their vessels, and tried to possess my
- mind with the relation of these two parts,
. to the utter exclusion of every other. I
- endeavoured then transmit along the
; nerves, the impu. f that faculty my
I whole hope reste:fl ; alas, it was in
- vain--I tried to heave my chest and
- hreathe, but could not--my heat sank
within me-and all my former terrors
[ came thickening around me,moredread-
l ful by far, as the stir and bustle in the
y room indicated they were about to close
i the coffin. At this moment, my dear
, friend B- entered the room--he had
i come many miles-to see me once more,
, and they made way for him to approach
V me as I lay. He placed his warm hand
I upon my breast, and, oh the throb it
sent through my heart. Again, but al-
most unconsciously to myself, the im-
pulse rushed along my nerves--a bur-
sting sensation seized my chest---a ting-
ling ran through my frame---a crashing,
jarring sensation, as if the tense nervous
cords were vibrating to some sudden
and severe shock, took hold on me; and
then, after one violent convulsive throe,
which brought the blood from my mouth
and eyes, my heart swelled at first slow-
ly, then faster; and the valves reverber-
ated, clank !-clank !-responsive to the
stroke, at the same time the chest expan-
ded, the musles strained like the cord-
age of a ship in a heavy sea, and I
breathed once more. While thus the
faint impulse to returning life was giv-
en, the dread thought flashed on me
that it might not be real, and that to my
own imagination alone, were referablei
the phenomena I, experienced. At the
very instant the gloomy doubt crossed
my mind, it was dispelled, for I heard a
cry of horror through the room, and the
words---He is alive---he still lives---from
- umbehpr of _unla aiund me. l'he
noise and confusion increased ; I heard
them say, carry out B--before he
sees him again---he has fainted Direc-
tions, and exclamations of wonder and
dread, followed one upon another, and I
can but call to mind the lifting me from
the coffin, and the feeling of returning
warmth I experienced, as I was placed
before a fire, and supported by the arms
of my friends.
"I will only add, that after some
weeks of painful debility, I was again
restored to health--having tasted the full
bitterness of death."

Caution to Insolvent Debtors.
SEPTEMBER TERM 1836.
TrMHE subscerber begs leave to caution persons whom
m they may employ to do their business, as many cases
are dismtssetl at every Term. owing to their papers being
improperly prepared and their business badly attended to.
Th-re are several persons who have recently commenced
thil bul.ness, bothin the city and county, who are un-
known to the C>urt, ignorant of the Insolvent Laws
themselves, and mcght involve poor and unfortunate men
in greater dlifculr,.-s than they may already be in.
Ine subscriber flatters himself chat manyyears erperi.
ene In this business, having taken through thle Cntrt
several thousand persons,and bas been so fortunate at
never to hare a solitary case dismissed, by any Iisman-
agemenitor inattention oe his part. Persons should make
application to me in propel time tbr the Court at my
old established Ofiee.No. 84 Lombarlstreet, below 4th.

As.soon as any important improvement in any branch
of Science or Art is dedicated to the public, and the
inventor is about to realize a recompenCe for the bene-
fits conferred upon Society through his instrumentality,
attempts are straightway made by selfish and mercena-
ry individuals to grasp and withhold from fhim his
nghtful compensation by false pretensions, counter-
feits, imitations, ec.
This unprincipled course of conduct has been man-
ifested towards "Rowand's Tonic Mixture." After its
remarkable efficacy in the treatment of Fever and
Ague had become so universally acknowledged, and
its friends began to be repaid for their efforts and ex-
pense in effecting its introduction into the Fever and
Ague districts of the country, L. S. Comstock' and his
associates of New York, first conceived the design of
circulating a counterfeit under the nameof 'Rowland's
Tonic Mixture." Soon we discover another prepara-
tion imitating more closely still the signature, and the
appearance of the original directions, pamphlets, bot-
tles, tfc. Besides thesepenal attempts to deprive the
afflicted and distressed of the usefulness of the Tonic
Mixture, and to defraud the proprietor and his agents
of theirjust and reasonable compensation, other means
scarcely less reprehensible and inhuman, have been
made use of to ffebct the same objects, by getting up
any insignificant or dangerous nostrum, call it any-bo-
dy s "Tonic Mixture," and foisting it off upon the
stranger and the simpleton, at any price, as being the
same, or equal to, the true and genuine.
The friends of the original Rowand's Tonic Mixture,
however, having their confidence in its superior and
unapproachable excellence more and more confirmed,
will always consider it their duty and gratification to
protect its interests from the assaults and designs of
tlie envious and mercenary, and will therelbore prompt-
ly and unreservedly expose any machinations of any
imposter, conscious that they will thus aid to perpe-
tuile an inestimable blessing to a very large proportion
of the suffering part of the community.

ver till now had my inability to rep
given me any pain or uneasiness-no,
however, the abortive struggle to speak
was torture. I thought and felt that n
senses were gradually yielding beneath
me, and a cold shuddering at my hea
told me that the hand of death was up(
me. The exertion now made to rep
the fatal lethargy, must have been gre
;for a cold, clammy perspiration brol
profusely over my body, and a rushing
sound, as if water filled my ears-a su
cession of short convulsive spasms, as
given by an electric machine, shook rm
limbs. I grasped the doctor's hat
firmly in mine, and starting to the si
ting posture, I looked wildly about m
My breathing became shorter and sho

heavily in the bed; the last recollect<
of that moment was the muttered e
pression of my poor friend G- sa
ing-'It is over at last.'
"Many hours must have elapsed ere
returned to my consciousness. My fir!
sensation was the cold wind across rr
face, which seemed to come from a
open window. My eyes were close
and my lids felt as if pressed down by
weight. My arms lay along my sid
and though the position in which I la
was constrained and unpleasant, I could
make no effort to alter it-I tried I
speak, but could not.
"As I lay thus, the footsteps of mar
persons traversing the apartment broL
upon my ear, followed by a heavy du
sound, as if some weightyvbody had bee
laid upon the floor--a harsh voice of or
near me now said, as if reading,'Wi,

through my brain, and with the rapidit
of a lightning flash, every circumstance
of my illness came before me, and I no,

interment was intended the awful prepay

Qould it be, that though coldness wrap
the suffering clay, passion and sens
should still survive-and that while eve
ry external trace of life had fled, consci

destined for the earth. Oh how horri

of that thought. Then I thought i
might be what is termed a trance, bu
that poor hope deserted me,as I brought
to manc tne worag or mne avuet,s wi.,
knew too well all the unering signs o
death to be deceived by its counterfeit
and my heart sank as they lifted me int,

stiffened, and I knew this never tool

heart-cutting anguish of that moment, a
my mind looked forward to a futurit
too dreadful to think upon ; when memo

existence, the losl offriends,the triumph
of exertion, and then fall back upon thb
dread and consciousness of the ever
busied life the grave closed over-ant

Seveller-to think that though-
Friends, brothers, and sisters, are laid side
by side,
Yet none have e'er questioned, nor none have
replied,
Yet that all felt in their cold and
mouldering hearts the loves and the af
sections of life, budding and blossoming
s though the stem was not rotting tc
corruption that bore them. I brought
mind the awful punishment of the
despot, who chained the living to the
lead man, and, thought it mercy when
compared to this.
"How long I lay thus I know not, but
he dreary silence of the chamber was
gain broken, and I found that some of
y dearest friends were come to take a
arewell look at me, ere the coffin was
losed on me for ever. Again the hor-
or of my state struck me with all its
orcible reality; and, like ameteor,there
hot throughmy heart.the bittnerness of
ears of misery, condensed into the
pace of a minute. And then I remem-
iered how gradual is death, and how by
degreess it creeps over every portion of
he frame-like the track of".he destroy
r, blighting as it goes-and said to my
eart, all may yet be still within me,and
he mind as lifeless as the body it dwelt
n; and yet these feelings partook of
ife in all their strength and vigor.-
Fhere was the will to move, to speak, to
ee, to live,-and yet all was torpid and
active, as though it had never lived.--
Vas it that the nerves, from some de-
ressing cause, had ceased to transmit
he influence of the brain ? had these
ringed messengers of the mind refused
heir office ?---and then I called to mind
he almost miraculous efficacy of the
rill exerted under circumstances of


reat exigency,and with a concentration
f power, that some men are only capa-
le of. I had heard of the Indian father
xho suckled his child at his own bosom,
'hen he had laid its mother in the
rave; yet was it not the will had
wrought this miracle? I myself had
een the paralytic limb awake to life and
lotion, by the powerful application of
he mind stimulating the nervous chan-
els of communication, and awakening
he dormant powers of vitality to their
exercise. I knew of one whose heart
eat fast or slow as he did wish it. Yes !
thought I, in a transport, the will to
ve, is the power to live; and only
hen this faculty has yielded with bodi-
'strength, need death he the conquer-.
r over us. The thought of reanima-
on was extatic;-but I dare not dwell
pon it-the moments passed rapidly
n, and even now the last preparations
ere about to be made, ere they commit-
d my body to the grave ? And how
as the effort to be made ? If the will
id indeed possess the power trusted in,
ow was it to be applied ? I had often
ished to speak or move during illness,
et was unable to do either. I then re-
nembered that in those cases where the
ill had worked its wonders, the pow-
rs of the mind had entirely centered
themselves in the one heart-filling desire

MOYAMENslNG--DEM0CRATtO3 MEgT-
ING.
At a meeting of the democratic citizens of this
township, held at the house of John Paisley, on
Friday evening, the 12th instant, CHARLES RI-
ZER was called to the chair, and Dr. M. F, Groves
appointed secretary.
The object of the meeting being stated by the
chairman, the following preamble and resolutions
were read and unanimously adopted:
Whereas, The unfortunate local disputes among
the democratic citizens of this township was wisely
and justly referred by the democratic county con-
vention to their delegates for amicable ;ind harmoni-
ous adjustment, and none having taken place, ow-
ing to the passions or uncompromising opinions of
the set representing our opponents, our democratic
brethren in the convention deemed it prudent tore-
fer the whole subject back to the people, appointing
a committee to superintend the election which was
to have taken place at the Commissioners Hall yes-
terday. And the democratic citizens ofMoyamen-
sing having assembled in great numbers to proceed
to poll their votes under the notice of the commit-
tee, were prevented because of the refusal of the
hall by the whig commissioners, and the determina-
tion of the committee not to inspect or superintend
the election unless the hall was opened for their ad-
mission. We did not poll a single vote in opposi-
tion to those who held an election on the steps of
the building, under the superintendance of citizens
of the township, who did not take the necessary
qualifications to discharge the duties of judges with
impartiality and fidelity; but determined to assem-
ble this evening and respectfully submit the whole
matter to the county convention, pledging ourselves
to patiently abide and support any adjustment they
may see fit to make of a question that we have re-
peatedly endeavored to settle to the satisfaction of
our opponents, but were totally unable; therefore,
Resolved, That the claims of our delegates, An-
drew Hooten, Wm H Hartnet, and George Hoffner,
for the East, and Jno. Pascal, Jas. Graham, and
Isaac Shubert for the West, be again laid before the
Democratic County Convention, assuring our de-
mocratic friends composing that Convention of our
entire satisfaction with,and approval of any arrange-
ment they may see fit to make, consistent with the
interests and success of the Democratic party, at the
coming election.
Resolved,That while we respectfully and earnest-
ly claim a representation in the Coqvention, we will
steadfastly sustain any and all nominations made
by them, should our delegates, or a part of them,
be refused seats therein, relying on the justice of
any anticipated settlement of this dispute, which
will be made under their supervision.
Resolved, That for the success of the Democratic
party, and not from a want of confidence in our
cause, we will yet assent to such numbers and indi-
viduals of the delegates above named being received
as the Convention may see fit, believing that the
Democratic party will require the assistance of all
of her friends, in opposing and conquering her com-
mon enemy and her traitor friends.
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meeting
be published, and a copy be submitted to the Con-
vention at their meeting on Monday next.

s of his good-natured auditor, scrambled ashore, where
i he sal, the picture of the shipwrecked mariner.
I Now, you must come along with me," said the
w Charley. helping him along; "1'll take care of you.
d But what made you a politicianer-ain't you good bfor
r nothing else-haven't you got a trade ?"
'y "Trade! yes," replied Brush, contemptuously;
e but what's a trade, when a feller's got a soul ? I love
" my country, and I want an offilce-I don't care what,
n so it's fat and easy. I've a genius for governing; for
l telling people what to do, and look at 'emrn do it. I
d want to take care of my country, and I want my coun.-
" try to take care of me. HIlead work is the trade I'm
made for-talking; that's my line. Talking in the
" streets, talking in the bar rooms, talking in the oyster
t cellars. Talking is the grease for the vagon wheels
e of the body politic and the body corpulent; and no-.
s thing will go on well till I've got my say in the mat-
* ter: for I can talk all d(ay, and most of the night, only
s stopping to wet my whistle. But parties is all alike-
e all ungrateful; no respect for genus; no respect for me.
e I've tried both sides, got nothing, and I've a great
* mind to knock off and call it half a day. I would, if
f my genus didn't make me talk, and think, and sleep
- so much, I can't find time to work."
a Yes, but Mr. Rosum, you must go before the
- Mayor first, Mr. Rosum."
t "No, I'd rather not. Stop-now I think of it, I've
s asked him before, but perhaps if you'd speak a good
, word, he'd give me the first vacancy. Introduce me
" properly, and say 1 want something to do shocking-
r no, not something to do-1I want something to get; my
h genus won't let ima work. I'd likepto have a fat sa-
0- lary and to be general superintendent of things inll
o general, and nothing in particular, so I could walk
-- about the streets, and see what is going on. Now,
el put my best leg foremost-say how 1 can make speech-
n es, and how I can hurra at elections."
a, No, I won't; you're a candidate for thirty days,
r and we'll have you examined in the morning. Every
in man for himself."
l That Brush's qualifications were found sufficient,
e there can be no doubt, and it is to be supposed, there-
e fore, that, by virtue of an instrument, entitled a mitti-
y mus, he was duly installed.

w From the .j. Y. Evening Post.
- Several of the Connecticut papers relate instances
d of longevity in their immediate neighborhood, from
which it might be inferred that the climate of the
is state is as favorable to the duration of human life
n, as any other. The Hartford Watchman mentions
n that the Rev. Joseph Vail, 85 years old, who has
e. been the pastor of the Congressional Church in
S; Hadlyme, for 56 years, preached a lecture on the
o 4th of July, in the house of Mr John Bronson, of
t Wolcott, then in the 101st year of his age, 80 of
gu which he has been a member of the church. This
i- has called out the Norwalk Gazette, which relates
n a story of an old gentleman of that place, enjoying
Excellent health and spirits,who recently celebrated
o, his 90th birth by calling on his old friends and con-
y temporaries, among whom was a favored lady of
e only 96. He was accompanied by a youthful ne-
i- phew of 92. The Norwalk paper adds that instances
at of similar longevity are ruqncro lTr in mat own slid
e. ito vicinity, among whom is a lively, healthy and
a intelligent lady, very near a 100 years old, still ac-
tually engaged in her household concerns.
t- The following is given as a sample of the recol-
e elections of the long lived people of Norwalk:
There are many here who well remember call-
a ing upon and going to see Doctor Franklin as he
h passed through this town on his way to Boston, to
i- sail on his first mission to France to negotiate a
at treaty with that country, upon the declaration of
e Independence here. His dress, appearance, conver-
s station and doings, are all perfectly remembered. He
a. travelled in a close carriage and four, with postil-
t. lions on the near horses and a servant in the car-
r- riage. He was then advanced in years, his hair
t white, his face sunken and wrinkled. He wore a
t fur cap, and the large round spectacles.' During
s his stay in this town he put up at the old house on
the green, now occupied by Mr Porter, in front of
s, which, at that time, was a large pond of water. It
was a stormy, windy day, and the water rough and
much agitated. Among other matters of amuse-
Y ment, the doctor told his visitors he would go out
. and make that water still by waving his cane over
'_ it. He went out, and after flourishing his stick a
i- few times over the windward side of the pond, the
surface became perfectly smooth. He was therefore
e unanimously voted a wizard or a sorcerer. Before
. he left, he told some of them he had contrived, un-
perceived, to throw some oil upon the water."
g.s The Stamford Sentinel boldly claims for the vici-
f nity ofStamford a precedence for health and longevi-
e ty over all other parts of the State, and gives the
, following account of the ancients of the place.


e. "The oldest person living in this village is Mrs
e Quintard. She is over 96, and has a son residing
. here so far advanced in tife as to be a revolutionary
d pensioner. Then there is her next door neighbors,
I Mr and Mrs Samuel Jarvis-he about 94, and she
1 only some four or five years younger, both in the
n perfect enjoyment of all their faculties, and as
f sprightly and blythe" as most people of half their
r years. We doubt whether there is a couple in Fair-
, field county who have lived as long together in the
Stands of wedlock, as have. this couple. We do not
s know the exact number of years they have lived
, together, but they have grand children at least 40
- years of age now living. Go a little further, and
There is Mrs Palmer, sister, by marriage of their
d children, to Mrs Quintard, who is but a year or two
f short of one hundred years of age. These venerable
h persons have all a large number of great-great grand
Children about them, several of whom are of suffi-
Scient age to engage in the active business of life.
Individuals between 70 and 90 years in this vicini-
Sty are too numerous to be particularized."
