Philadelphia, Dec. 15, 183a.
I do hereby certify, that I was afflietel with a malignant
disaee fr a long time, and I have tried a great many kinds
of medicines, but of no use. I have tried a great man)
Doctors, but none could do me any good until I heard ot
the celebrated Dr. HULT. I went to him-he found me in
a very bad state, but he undertook to cure me on the most
reasonableterms--o I went under his care. He gave me
some of his medicine, and in a little time I began to te-
cover, and inthtree weeks I was perfectly cured. i there-
fotbe can recommend all those afflicted with the same dis-
ease to the candor and superior knowledge of Dr HUkT,

Dear Sir: I return you my sincere thanks for your valu-
able medicine and speedy cure you have made of me. I
had the minfortune to be afflicted will a disease called Go

who agreed to cure me in a short time, and I paid him his
charge. I remained unl!er his treatnien: lor the space o'
three months, and I found no relief by him. I then lelt
him and appline to a celebrated Doeior-he attended me
for two months ami more, I found no relief. 1 then ap.
plied to three other Doctors, but anl in vain. I then gavy
up all hiopesol ever getting cured. Otne day I saw litr.

a great deal belter, and in two weeks more I felt myself

Peremptory sale of 2000 Lots, with a large por-
tion of the water privileges of the village of Os-
-wego Falls.
AMES BLEECKER &'SONS will sell at public
Auction, on the premise in the village of Oswe-
go Falls, on Tuesday, the 18th ofOctober,at 2 o'clock,
. M., 2000 Lots, with a large portion of the water
privileges of the village ofOswego Falls.
The village of Oswego Fall is situated in the town
ofGranby, in the county ofOswego, on the west bank
of the Oswego rive,, teni and a half miles from Oswe-
go, twenty-six from Syracuse, wenty-nine miles from
Auburn, and directly opporte the town of Fulton.
which now contains a population of about twenty-five
hundred inhabitants. Tihe vilage ofOswego Falls is
most beautifully situated. The ground, as laid down
on the map,stretches along the river about a mile and
a quarter, and from thence extends back about three
quarters of a mile to Fish Lawe, which is a beautiful
sheet of water, about nine miles in circumference,and
abounds with fish of an excellent quality.
The highest point of the village ofOswego Falls
above the river, is about fifty fcet at its centre, from
whence the ground descends vith a gentle slope to-
wards the Lake to the west, a-d to the river to the
east, and in fact in either direction is so moderate and
gradual, as to require no artifidal grading. The en-
tire plot of ground is sufficiently elevated to command
an extensive and delightful view of the surrounding
country in every direction,and experience has proved
that no place is more healthy. Its water power is
derived from the Oswego river, rushing over a fall of
15 feet, and is almost illimitable in extent, and inex-
haustible in quantity, admitting of the erection of
mills and manufactories along a line of three quarters
of a mile.
Oswego river at these alls discharge the waters
of fourteenjor fifteen western lakes, the principal of
which are Seneca, Cayuga, Skaneatelas, Crooked,
Owasco, Canandaigua, &c., and the volume of water
is estimated as equal in quantity to that of the Hudson
at the cities of Albany and Troy. The value of this
hydraulic power, in connectionwith its capacity,is ve-
ry greatly enhanced by its equibility, the numerous
and extensive reservoirs formed by those lakes,entire-
ly preventing any sudden rise from freshets, or dimi-
nution from drought,the great objection to almost eve-
ry other water power. The river at these falls
having never been known to rise or fall over four
The Oswego Falls Village is situated in a very fer-
tile tract of country,which is fast settling,and will soon
vie with any other agricultural district in the state,
so great has been the-tide of emigration to this section
of country that its population has nearly doubled with-
in the past year. Aside therefore from any benefits
or advantages derived from its unrivalled hydraulic
power, the local business of the surrounding county
is sufficient to sustain a population of eight or ten
thousand inhabitants. These advantages, taken in
connection with the manufacturing facilities furnish-
ed by this immense water power, and with the fact
that it is already the focus for the travel and business
of a great portion of the county, the Syracuse and Os-
wego Road passing directly through it, and the Au-
burn and Volney roads uniting at this place, cannot
fail to ensure a very rapid growth, and within a very
few years a large and flourishing population. The
packets from Syracuse pass four times each day by,
this place, and it has already a direct water cornmu-
nicatiou by three different rules to the Atlantic
Ocean, and an unimpeded water communication with
the Upper and lower Provinces of Canada, the con-
templated rail roads from Utica to Oswego, and from
Syracuse to Oswego, connection at this place, and
making it the centre of rail road'communiaation,must
ensure toit very superior advantages, which, added
to the fact that he Oswego rivet is destined to be the
route of the Steanboat and ShipCanal, and the gene-
ral route of by far the greater portion of travel and
transportation to the far west, carnot fail to satisfy the
most scrupulous that Oswego and Oswego Falls must
very soon become the mort important commercial and
manufacturing towns in the west.
The village of Oswego Falls already presents quite
a business-like appearance, containing a population of
some 200 inhabitants, a splendid hotel, stores, mills,
&c. &c.; and there is now Iunder contract and being

Of Ward's Protractor System of

nHE publisher announces to his subscribers and to
the trade, that he will issue on or before the Isl
day of October next ensuing, No. 3 of his Application
System, containing the London and Philadelphia Au-
tumn and Winter Fashions for 1836-7. Great care
has been taken to get this publication out in a style of
superior excellence, and as he has cut garments in
strict accordance with the drafts laid down, he can
confidently promise that the application will produce
accuracy in fit, with taste and fashion.
The battering encomirms daily expressed by skil-
ful and fashionable Tailors, gives token of a satisfac-
tion particularly gratifying; and the extent of patro-
nage already received, is an incentive to additional
exertion. Letters commendatory, containing orders
for the work, are neither "few norfar between," and
the resident tailors who have subscribed (and they are
many) freely express their conviction of its superiority
over all other systems.
The following extracts of letters from a few of the
early subscribers, will give some idea of the estima-
tion in which the work is held.
From Mr. Joel Stevenson, Columbia, S.C. July 30,1835.
Dr. Str:-I perceive by an advertisement in the
Philada. Saturday Courier, that you design to publish
new applications of, and improvements to the Protrac.
tor System. Having been for 10 years a subscriber to
Mr. Ward's publication, and being already acquaint-
ed with the use of the Protractor,I wil be entitled to
the publication for the first year for 5 dollars, which
amount I now enclose. Should it be such a work as
judging from your reputation as a cutter) you are ca-
pable o getting up, you may depend upon it, "you will
have a full list of subscribers from the South."
The principle is good, and any man in our Northern
Cities of practical experience, who will draft accu-
rately, according to the fashions ofthe North, will
at all times be compensated by a long list of cash
subscribers; and although I have not the pleasure ofa
personal acquaintanco, yet I have no doubt but under
direction of your mature judgment, good taste, and
practical eye, I shall receive something in evry re-
spect satisfactory.

February 8, 1835. k
Dear Sir:-I have seen the advertisement of your
intention to publish a work, entitled Mahan's Improve- I
ment, iyc. Having for many years been a subscriber a
to Mr. Ward's report of fashions, and believing the
Protractor system superior to any other in the abstract,

every improvement on the system, I have concluded
to take your work for one year, and if Ijind it to be 9
an improvement, you will find me a steady and punc-
tual subscriber. I wish to subscribe for the picture I

Belfonte, May 1, 1836.
Dear Sir:-In reply to my letter of February last, I
received in due time a copy of your publication, t
which is indeed an improvement. You may consider e
me a subscriber until I order the work discontinued. a
From Enoch Bryant, Eastport, Me., April 11, 1836. d

what I believe to be your highly improved system. It a
came to hand this morning-I immediately proceeded c
to cut out a coat by it, and am struck with the beau-
ty and taste it unfolds; nor can I believe that it will C
fail in any point to fit. c
From Emanuel Gibbney, Martinsburg, Pa. June 4, '36.
Dear Sir:-Your favor of the 4th nit. was duly re- S
ceived, acknowledging the receipt of five dollars, to- s
gether with your report or rule of cutting, and should

From the London Morning Herald.
The accompanying picture, frightful.
ly true to nature, appears in an article on
the "Domestic Arrangements of the
Working Classes," in the last London
and Westminster Review, and may be
called a genuine Hogarh in print. The
lesson which it holds out, is not address-

ject matter, for they are involunttary vic-
tims to a wretched fate, but to all who
have the influence, and should have the
heart to ameliorate the condition of the
''The child was one of nine, the eldest
of whom had been born on the ground
floor of a house situated in a row, in a
long dark alley, where the sun Was never
seen save at mid day, and then only oc-
casionally, during the satnmmer's heat.
The father had originally been a decent
mechanic, earning from twenty-five to
thirty shilllings per week; and when his
first child was born, there were few men
in his station so happy as he, for all his
wants were well supplied. His wife was
an industrious, cheerful partner; and the
gloominess of their abode was unheeded,
relieved as it was by their weeklytwalk in
the green fields. Still more prosperous
times came; and the earnings of the hus-
band being increased, he was enabled to
occup) both the rooms of the first floor.
Three more children were born; atnd the
necessity for a larger supply of food
obliged Ihem to encroach on their rent.
The first floor was exchanged for the se-
conid;-the family was increased by two
other members, and all removed to the.
garrets. For some years the weekly
walk in the fields had been discontinued.
by the woman; and the garments of the.
husband having become unsightly, he
also had ceased to seek the freshly air, the
whole of his time was taken up with pro-
viding the food necessary for his chil-
dren, and his wife was wholly occupied
it looking after them, and contriving to
keep together the rags which covered
hem. Two more children .were born;
and all -were confined to a single back
garret, where the wages of the husband
being insufficient to appease their hun-
ger, the wife endeavored to eke them out
)y washing for their neighbors, some of
whom were not quite as poor as them.
selves. It was a scene of misery, from
which the elder children were glad to es-
cape, and play upon the staircase, or in
he court before the house, becoming
early inured to disputes and quarrels
among themselves and with other chil-
Iren, every room in the house being oc-
:upied by a desperate family. In the
nidst of this, the man's wages happened
o be reduced; and after long bearing up
against misery, he at last yielded to the
iabit of intoxication-partly to appease
he cravings of unsatisfied hunger, and
)artly to get rid of thought. His wife
still struggled and worked harder, but
only to procure food, for all other consi-
lerations were now disregarded. In this
conditionn her ninth child was born; and
:harity alone-the chari y of misery to
still greater misery-saved them from
Starving. But the woman was changed:
ihe had become reckless through suffer-
ng, and the sight of her youngest child
only served to remind her that an addi-
.ional weight of misery had fallen on her.
Shealso took to intoxication as a refuge
from pain: the coin which was inade-.
quate to supply food was yet sufficient
:o produce a temporary oblivion of the
want of it. The frequent hunger and
pain which the child experienced were
alleviated in the same manner; none
smiled on its young eyes when they were
opened, and almost the only sensa-
.ion of pleasure it could experience was
n gazing vacantly on the rays ofsunlight
which at some few intervals penetrated
:he apartment.
"Mother and father were now frequent-
y away from home for hours, and some-
times days together; and remarkable in
a sickly infant was the tenacity of life,
which would not suffer it to perish.
How the other children lived, was a
mystery to all but those in a similar con-
Iition; they had no daily meals, nor
even sat down to food. Like dogs or
wolves, they had a great capacity for
endurance; having no labor to perform,
hey could exist for days on the smallest
possible quantity of food, and they were
,ver on the alert to beg, snatch or steal.
One feeling alone was uppermost in their
ninds, which gave room to no other I
he pain of unsatisfied hunger. Their
Ireams, during the scanty time of sleep
were of eating; and when they awaken-
ed, it was to seek the means of eating.
The eldest children took by force from
he younger any scraps of food they found
with them; and the younger resorted to
runningg to devour them in private. II
chance threw in their way a larger booty
han ordinary, it was devoured in haste,
and in quantity, which left them in the
conditionn of the torpid boa-a prey to
lhe pains and helplessness of over-teple-

"Glo)my was the daily scene on which
he young child gazed when his facul-
ies began to awaken. During the sum-
mer he would crawl towards the miser-
ible casement,and look upwards through
.he interstices of surrounding stacks of
:himnies, ,to gaze upon the light; but
when the winter came, he shrunk shiv-
ering, huddled up in his rags, towards
the fireplace, which rarely contained a
ire, and when by chance it did, volumes
of smoke filled the apartment, and (loud-
ed over the wretched fragments called
furniture, which only remained unsold
by the parents because they were worth
no one's purchase. Ere the child was
old enough to descend the stairs, to fol-
low the pursuits of his brothers and sis.
ters, the whole family were ejected from
their miserable abode, to one still mote
wretched-they were driven to the cel
lar. It was in auturnn, and thedanmp oi
the place made a fearful change. Klic
they had been a week in it, the whole o(
them were prostrate by typhus fever.-
The father, the two eldest boys, and the
youngest,alone survived to endure farther
suffering. They might even then have
become worthy members of society, had
the father retained strength of purpose
or moral feeling,for the disposition of the
eldest boy was naturally kind and bene-
volent, ere it had been hardened by want
and misery. But it was now too late;-
aid the intellect of the boy only served
to make a skilful thief. The whole fa-

means of earning a living; they lived in
the belief that thieving was their proper
trade, and those who punished them for
it, tyrants, whose only right was might.
The heart of the eldest boy which
yearned for affection, expanded towards
the young ehild, who was accustomed to
look for his return home as his only
source of pleasure, and when the father
died of disease and debauchery, he took
him for his protege, and removed to a
more healthy abode.
"The other brother disappeared, no
one knew whither; and when the young-
est attained the age of seven ytars, his
only friend, his only protector, the only
being who loved him, was taken from
him by a sentence of transportation.-
Left alone in the world, he became a
thief at that early age, and ere he attain-
ed eight years, he became acquainted
with the interior of a prison. Harshly
treated by all, he grew fierce and reck-
less; and as ,his intellect expanded, he
became a fearful spoiler of his kind He
loved no one, and trusted to no one-sen-
sual excitement was his only pleasure,
his only wish, and he revelled in every
kind of debauchery. His natural ener-
gy was divided between the pursuit of
robbery, and the dissipation of the gains
acquired byit. His intelligence succeeded
in putting off to a distant period the
retribution with which he knew society
would sooner or later visit him; and he
had attained twenty-three years of age,
ere he was convicted of felony,and trans-
ported to a penal colony. His career
was then short. On the voyage he nMn-
ed a mutiny, which failed of success by
the treachery of an intended accomnlice-
and, on landing, the punishment inflicted
on him was of a kind which would have
destroyed every soark of humanity in
him, had any remained. He escaped,
and became a leader-of hush rangers; his
hands were made familiar with human
blood; and, after going through scenes of
the most disgusting horrors, he was
shot, like a wild beast in his lair, by
those who feared to anproach. from ter-
ror of his untameable ferocity. et this
being was once a gentle infant, smiling
in innocence."

,No Burden, no Bank-Van Buren and Johnson.
The Democratic citizens of Southwark, Moya-
mensing and Passyunk, friendly to the election of
Van Buren and Johnson, and the regularly nomi-
natad candidates of the Democratic party, will meet
at the Commissioners' Hall THIS EVENING, the
19th inst., at 7 o'clock, to further the election of the
regular candidates, agreeably to a resolution passed
on the 12th inst.

The democrats of this district meet at the Comn
missioners Hall, Southwark, this evening, for the
purpqpe of adopting measures to secure the success
of the county t cket. The Hall will, no doubt, be
crowded. Let every democrat attend.

Col. PAYNTER has handed us the following let-
ter from Mr DALLAS for publication. We regret
that the latter gentleman is unable to accept a no-
mination which would have been tendered to him,
as we have every reason to believe, with the good
feelings of the whole democracy of the First Con-
gressional District. The course which he has lately
taken in regard to the Repeal of the Charter of the
Bank of the United States, having induced an at-
tack upon him of almost unexampled bitterness, and I
the sentiments of the democracy of the county co-
inciding with his own on that,subject, it would have
been desirable to give to Mr Dallas's conduct, as
well as to his views, that best sanction in a popular
government-an approving vote of the people. The
reasons which prevent this being given in his letter,
we have merely to express with him, and indeed
with the whole community, the most cordial appro-
bation of the conduct of Col. PATNTERt--a gentle-
man who adds to a nomination founded on the set-
tled usages of the democratic party, that soundness
of republican principles and devotion to the public
welfare, which render certain his elevation to the
high office for which he is a candidate.

Mr DEAR Sxn,-The kindness of the compli-
ment which you and many of my friends of the
First Congressional Distiict have proposed to pay
me, by placing me in nomination for the ensuing
election, upon your renunciation, has been so deep-
ly felt, that until this morning, I have not suffi-
ciently reflected upon and appreciated the conse-

quences of my acceding to it. I hasten now to say,
with the sincerity and frankness required by the oc-
casion, that an uncontrollable sense of duty to my
family, dependent entirely uponIthe steady pursuits
of my professional exertions, obliges me to decline
this testimonial of your preference and esteem,
which would otherwise be welcomed with an ardor
equal to its undeserved partiality. Let me add that
I cordially wish you, in the canvass, the success to
which your generous devotion to the democratic
cause, and a just adherence to settled usages andi
regular nominations, entitle you.
I am, truly and respectfully,
Dear, Sir,your friend,
To Lemuel Paynter, Esq.

We are happy to perceive that the National Ga- s
zette of Friday gives it up good-humoredly. There
is no decision then of the Supreme Court of the
United States to be found, "that the particular
clause of the 10th section, included in these words,
'noState shall pass any bill of attainder, expost fac- 1
to law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts,'
prohibits any exercise of powers by the people in r
convention assembled, to frame a constitution for
themselves and their posterity." Our position is
therefore proved, and it is candidly conceded by our
courteous antagonists, that there is no such autho-
rity as we requested the production of.
Now our other position is, that this clause ,is
confined to the State Legislatures, because the t
words used cannot be extended to constitutions or-
dained by the people," and "that this clause simply
applying to the acts of the State Legislatures, does 1
not restrain the power of a convention, which is not
embraced either by its words or its spirit."
Now the only answer given to this is, that "when
the sun shines it is daylight;" and that the second
clause of the 6th article is in these words:
"This Constitution, and the laws of the United
States which shall be made in pursuance there: t
and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under
the authority of the United States, shall be the su-
preme law of the land; and the judges in every
Stateshall be bound thereby, any thing in the CoN-
STITUTION or laws of any State to the contrary i
Now we are unable to see either the application of t
the first axiom as of this clause to the present sub- l
ject, because the question to be solved was, whether t
the clause of the 10th section of the 1st article ex-
tended to conventions of the people, or only, as we
affirmed, to acts of the state legislature; and as we
deny the assertion that it did extend to constitutions 1
so framed, we are really at a loss to see how it is
-..-A i --t- -I.n i a9-- a- .i-,...

The frantic expressions of delight with which the
opposition speak of the Vermont elections, is amus-
ing. They talk of it as if their success were alto-
gether unanticipated, and as complete as unexpect-
ed. Now it so happens that they have held the
reins of power in that State for a series of years,
and during that time have carried everything before
them: and so far from having reason to rejoice over
the result of the late contest, they have cause to de-
plore the loss of at least one member of Congress,
and diminished majorities. In 1834 in the 5th Dis-
trict, Fletcher, the democratic candidate, was defeat-
ed by Janes. Now Fletcher is elected by a hand-
some vote bver the same opponent. In the same
year, Bradley, the democratic candidate for Gover-
nor, was defeated, with a majority against him of
17,000 votes. In 1835 the majority against him
was 8,000, and now it is supposed to be not more
at the utmost than 5,000, if it reaches that sum.
The Albany Argus condenses the subjoined in-
formation derived from the MontpelierPatriot,which
says the senate will stand nearly equal. In Wash-
ington and Caledonia counties the democratic sen-
ators are elected by handsome majorities-in the
former by nearly 500; and probably in Orleans, Es-
sex, Grand Isle and Franklin. The result in Or-
ange it considers doubtful, while it concedes that
Chittenden, Addison, Windsor and Rutland have
elected opposition senators. Windham and Ben-
nington not heard from.
Of 167 members elect to the house of represen-
tatives, the Patriot puts down 91 as democrats and
76 as either whigs or anti-masons--at all events
opposed to the administration--without pretending
however to entire accuracy. Still, it says, "we are
pretty well persuaded that Samuel Prentiss cannot
be re-elected to the U. S. senate."
With regard to the congressional candidates, the
Patriot thinks it quite certain that Mr. Everett in
the 3d, and Mr. Slade in the 2d district, are re-
elected, over Messrs. Partridge and Barber, their re-
publican opponents; and quite as uncertain how the
contest has resulted between Messrs. Robinson and
Hall, in the 1st and between Messrs. Van Ness
and Allen in the 4th. Of the election of General
Fletcher in the 5th district, over Janes, the federal
incumbent, there is no doubt, and by a majority
ranging from 4 to 500.
If, on the eve of a Presidential election,whiggery
can derive comfort from such results, it has a truly
remarkable power of drawing joy from adverse cir-
cumstances. The enemy have a desperate struggle
to make in Vertnont in November, if they hope to
retain the vote of the state.

The Portland Argus of Tuesday says-
We have heard from all the towns in this Con-
gressional District, and if our returns are correct, we
have a majority for Representative to Congress; but
the vote is so close,that we wait to get exact returns,
before giving them detail.
We have letters, giving the vote for Governor in
Kenebec County, 27 towns, giving Dunlap, 3080,
Kent, 3980. No choice in Gardiner, Waterville
and New Portland. Two Democrats elected in
The Augusta Age of September 14, says-the
Democrats of Augusta have at length carried their
Representative ticket-and that too, against a well
organized opposition, with the whole influence of
town officers and town patronage to contend with,
and with much the largest aggregate vote ever
thrown in this town. The triumph is decisive and
The Bangor Advertiser of Tuesday says-" The
Election in this citp went off quietly-there was no
exertion made by our party, and,as the result shows,
we are beaten by about two hundred. The majori-
ty is not quite so large as at the Spring Election,
and at the great contest of '32] the Whigs led us
three hundred."
Nineteen townsin Penobscot county give Dunlap
3028-Kent 2300.
The Legislature will be about the same as last
year.-Evans, Federal, is re-elected to Congress
From Kenebec-it is possible that there have been
no elections in Penobscot, Hancock, and Waldo
Congressional Districts, owing to divisions among
the Democrats; yet the poor Feds are left far, far
behind-they stand no chance in any of the Dis-
tricts, in any emergency.

"We have just received," says the Keystone, "a
copy of the proceedings of the Senate of Ohio, in
WHITE MEN INTO SLAVERY, which we have pro-
cured from Columbus, certified to be correct by the
Secretaryoof State. It will appear in our next."
It is proposed by the whigs, we understand, to
have a copy of this memorable document beautiful.
y printed on white satin and presented to the man-
selling candidate upon his arrival in Philadelphia.
We recommend the following eulogium upon this
practice by an eminent Judge of the Supreme Court
of the United States, to be endorsed on the back of
this more than Roman instrument.
"There was a time when a different idea pre-
vailed, and then it was supposed that the rights of
the creditor required the sale of the debtor and his
family. A similar notion now prevails on the
coast of AFrICA, and is often exercised there by
brute frrce. It is worthy only of the country in
which it now exists, and of that state of society ini
which it once originated and prevailed."

Mrs. Jameson, the talented and accomplished au-
thoress of "The Diary of an Ennuyce," Memoirs
of Female Sovereigns," Characteristics of Women,"
&c., &c., is expected very shortly in this country.
In a letter to a friend in| this city, which we have
seen, she wrote that it was her intention to sail
from England in August, either by the Quebec or
Philadelphia. She comes to join her husband, who
is Solicitor General of Upper Canada, and resides at

[For the Pennsylvanian.]
The approaching convention in Pennsylvania
will be the most important epoch to the people (not
only of this State, but of the Union) which has oc-
cured since the Declaration of Independence. A paper
power and policy will then probably be overthrown,
ir established as the permanent principle of our go-

vernment. Chartered moriied monopolies on their
present ruinous principles will then be abolished,
or modified so as to restore to individuals all the
rights, political and social, which are now transfer-
ed to destructive and corrupt corporations.
Pennsylvania, in one alternative, will become an
responsiblee bank government, and, in the other, a
'ree republic; in the one, a community consisting
but of two classes-incorporated creditors, and in-
dividual debtors;-which of these will rule the state
in all its relations, political, pecuniary, civil and so-
:ial, it is as easy to foretel as, that if the despotism
shall be once established, liberty will never be re-
stored to the people.
Mankind may be governed by a monied power
(as you are at present in Philadelphia) more easily
and more effectually than by arms. A bank may
be said to convert every individual into a debtor,and
:he power and influence of the creditor class is al-
ready sufficiently extensive. Wealth is the great
machine for governing the world, and whatever
Iraws power, patronage and suffrage in unequal
portions into a few hands, must become the ruling
The true democracy of Pennsylvania and Vir-
ginia have always preserved these just principles in
their recorded sentiments. Among them I re-
ncmber well the opinions and expressions of one of
;he most distinguished statesmen of Virginia, the
ate John Taylor of Caroline, an old United States
Senator, whose name is still a tower of strength,
and who said that "Liberty could only receive her
leath wound in the United States from the living
aristocracy of paper and patronage." Mr. Taylor,
besides being a statesman, was a practical farmer,
and one of the most distinguished men of his coun-
:ry for moral worth and integrity of life. His opin-
ion of the vested rights ofindividuals, and, that
thesee can't be transferred to corporations, was in
strict accordance with those now opposed to the
bank and paper power and policy.
The Convention of Pennsylvania recurrifig to
these principles, may rescue the state from their de-
leterious influence, should the same power not be
thoughtt inherent in the legislature; for if, as some
contend, it is not in either, the absurd conclusion
seems inevitable, that one law of an annual and mi-
nority legislature may subject allposterity to a
power which it has been accidentally enabled to
create, and may continue forever to a corporation

CELESTE is re-engaged at the Chesnut street
Theatre. Her benefit on Saturday night drew a
remarkably numerous and brilliant audience, and
the performances passed off with great spirit.

Mr. FORREST took his farewell benefit at the
Park Theatre, New-York, on Thursday evening,
in the character of Othello.
The Star says,
"T'he house was crowded to the ceiling, and
would have been uncomfortably crammed with hun-
dreds more, had not ma.:y been, fortunately for
those who were present, deterred from coming hby
the advanced prices at which numbers of tickets
were purchased on speculation, which led to the be-
lief that there would be no room, all of which was
so much gain to the othertheatres.
Mr. Forrest's acting was as powerful and finished
as we have before described it. At the close he was
called out, and addressed the audience in his usual
felicitous manner-spoke of his being'content to re-
pose on the good opinion of his countrymen, but
that the solicitations to appear at Covent Garden
were too flattering not to comply with, and which
he wished more particularly to accept to show that
he believed that an English audience will receive
with a cordial welcome an American'actor. "They
will," cried an honest John Bull. "I'm sure they
will," replied Mr. F. very happily. Thunders of
applause followed. He alluded to the kind reception
he had met with in his debut when a youth before a
N. York audience, in the part he had just performed;
spoke of the effect this had on his ambition, and that
their approbation had stamped him as an actor. He
bade an affectionate farewell, and the audience,
amidst the waving of kerchiefs, from the ladies,gave
six heartfelt cheers in return."
The Spirit of the Times says:-
"He received $500 per night, notwithstanding
which, the manager must have cleared a $1000.
"Tickets for his farewell benefit,in the front seats,
sold readily for two dollars each, and a sale was
made of several at three. In order to gratify the
citizens of Albany, who were extremely anxious to
see him previous to his departure for Europe, Blake
and Dinneford offered Mr. F. the -whole receipts of
the house for a single nights performance!"
He sailed for Liverpool on Friday in the packet
ship Europe.

From the N. Y. Cour. & Enq. of Saturday.
Most inhuman XMt urder.-Yesteiday morning
Mrs. Alice Ackley, wife of Samuel Ackley, aged
40, was found dead in her bed entirely naked, in
her apartment, in a rear building at the corner of
Rivington and Essex street. On Thursday night
she had retired to bed in a state of intoxication,and
when in the morning her death was ascertained,
the coroner was sent for, and suspicion being en-
tertained that she had come to her death in some
improper manner, Ackley, the husband, and a man
named Joseph Leger, who lodged in the same room
with them, were arrested, sent to the upper Police
Office and imprisoned. A jury was empannelled
and a physician sent for, who after an examination
of the body, and hearing of testimony, and discover-
ing no marks of violence, brought in a verdict that
the deceased came to her death by intemperance
and exposure. In consequence of this verdict, sus-
picion having vanished, after the discharge of the
jury, the Coroner prepared an order to be sent to
the upper Police, for the liberation of Ackley and
Leger from confinement. In the interim and be-
fore the execution of the order, Alderman Waterbu-
ry, of the 1lth Ward, in which the death occurred,
received information of such a nature as to induce
him to countermand the Coroner's order for the pri.
soners' liberation. About the time that the coroner's
jury was discharged, some of the neighbors,prompt-
ed by curiosity, in looking about, accidentally dis-
covered some pieces of bloody linen in the bottom
of the sink, and dragging them out, discovered that
they were the shirt of Ackley and the chemise of
his wife, both of which were gory with blood, and
tended to strengthen the previous suspicions of the
neighbors, that Mrs. Ackley had died by the hands
of violence. Communicating the fact to the Alder-
man of the Ward, that magistrate, after counter-
manding the order for the prisoners' liberation, pro-
cured a physician, proceeded to the house, and in-
stituted a more critical examination of the body,
which proved most conclusively thot the woman had
been most inhumanly murdered, in a manner almost
if not quite unprecedented in our country. On
turning her over on her face, a large quantity of
blood, the issue of an extensive internal hemorrhage
was discovered.
After a still more critical examination, it was as-
certained that some large rough instrument of wood
or iron, had been forced with great violence through
the posterior aperture, far up into the body and
bowels, rupturing the smaller vessels, and dreadfully
lacerating and wounding the intestines and parts
adjacent as it proceeded, casting the effusion of
much blood and inevitably producing death by this
new and horrid method of impalement. On ascer-
taining the facts, the Coroner was again sent for,
and ajury again summoned after nightfall to inves-
tigate the case anew, and from the frightful array
of revolting facts presented to deduce a correct opin-
ion of the cause of the wom-n's death. The jury
had not completed their investigations, at a late
hour to make their verdict, but the wretched hus-
Iand and Joseph Leger were plsaed in close con-
finement, charged with the perpetration of the dia-
bolical deed.

Supposed .Murder.-Strong suspicions are en-
tertained at Litchfield, Conn., that a Mr. Knapp of
North Canaan, in that County, has been murdered.

Ie left home to go to College Mountain to see a
neighbor and have a settlement, carrying with him
at the time a tin bor containing $400, with which
sum he was about to emigrate to Michigan. Not
returning in season, his friends went in pursuit of
him, when the box was found with the lock broken
and the contents gone; his hat was also found with
a cut through the forepart as if done with an axe,
and blood, hair and flesh stuck around it as if the
edges had been pressed into the head by the blow.
An alarm was immediately spread,and a large num-
ber of people ftom Canaan, Norfolk and Sheffield,
were out on Saturday and Sunday, but had been
unsuccessful in finding the body. Suspicion had
alighted upon an individual who was about there,
cut as he has not been apprehended, nor the body
found, we forbear mentioning his name at present,
Knapp has left a wife and two children.--N. Y.

Frost in .Maine.-Extract of a letter from a
town near Portland, dated Sept. 6th:-Tuesday
last was like a winter's day. and the night follow-
ing was so cold that the vines and their fruits were
frozen. It is melancholy to look on the desolation.
Not an ear of corn is there any where in this neigh-
borhood, that has arrived at a fit state even for boil-
ing. Potatoes are about half grown, and every
thing much in the same condition.-N. Y. Sun.

Firn.-A store in Eighth street above Market
street, occupied by two persons as a tailor shop and
clothing store, was much injured by fire on.Thurs-
day evening. The fire injured the interior and the
lower part of the exterior of the building, and we fear
that the water necessary to check the progress of
the flames, must have injured the goods.-Had the
fire got a little more headway, the loss must have
been extensive.-U. S. Gaz.

A select and full audience, attracted by the pub-
lic invitation of this interesting society, assembled I
on Thursday evening at the University. The open- t
ing Prayer addressed to the Throne of Grace, on be- I
half of the young members of the Society and the t
Institution, was marked by passages of pathos and c
piety, equally impressive in their delivery, and ap- i
plicable to the occasion. The main business of the a
evening was the discourse of Judge Pettit, to which (
the audience listened with attention,instruction and i
pleasure. To the personal graces of attitude, and r
a full clear voice, the Judge added an impressive u
dignity of manner well calculated to fix and fasten d
upon the memory of the student the advice,maxims e
and animating exhortations with which his oration
was enriched. His reflections upon the rapid in.
crease of this country: the blessings of its govern-

Letters from Florida, published in the Richmond
Enquirer, represent the situation of the whole terri-
tory as terrible in the extreme. They state thai
large parties of Creeks have joined the Seminoles-
that Oseolais perfectly acquainted with all the move
ments of the whites-that he receives and reads re

of the Indians is daily increasing, and that hell

ST. AUGUSTINE, Aug. 3 Ist.-An express arrived
last night from Fort Gilland (Newnansville.) It i
reported that the Indians have invested the place
and that there is a scarcity of provisions. Colonel
Crane, with commendable promptness, has ordered
to that point all the mounted troops that could be
spared, both regular and militia, and a supply o:
provisions to last them until the first of November

HAVAnA.-Letters have been received from Ha-
vana, which say that in consequence of the late
commotions in Spain, which resulted in the pro-
claiming of the constitution of 1812, great sensation
had been felt among all classes of people. The major-
ity of the inhabitants, it is well known, entertain
ultra liberal opinions, and some change, it is appre-
hended, will ensue in the political organization of
the government of the island. It will at any rate
require all the energy of Governor Tacon to pre-
serve the present order of things, particularly as
much dissatisfaction exists among the troops on ac-
count of not having been allowed to return home,
when the term of service for which they had enlis-
ted had expired. The brother of Governor Tacon
was in command at Cadiz when the late revolution
took place, and was compelled to obey the will of
the people.-JV'. Y. Courier.

with a paragraph relating to the rumored defalca-
tions,to an immense amount,of two other merchants
lately in extensive business in this city, is now no
longer concealed, even by his immediate friends,
and those who haa hitherto attempted to screen
him from exposure. Mr. Henry W. Cammam,
commission merchant of Front street, is the person
whom busy rumor has charged with having commit-
ted forgeries to the tune of several thousand dollars,
upon his father and two other relatives, the pro-
ceeds of which, it is said, he squandered away at
the gaming table; and then precipitately fled to Eu-
rope to avoid the consequences of his infamy and
guilt-self expatriated, ruined and disgraced. The
frequent occurrence, of late, of instances of this
kind amongst individuals who, from education and
fortune, ought to be regarded as the pillar and or-
nament of good society, is a fearful subject for re-
flection, and ought to impress others of the same
grade and character, who are now running headlong
into a like awful vortex, of the necessity of check-
ing themselves in their headlong career of vice and
folly. The close approximation of New York to the
metropolitan cities of Europe, both in population
and wealth, has not only caused the introduction
here of the gaieties, fashions, and enervating luxur-
ies which exist in those cities,but it has also unhap-
pily created amongst some classes of our communi-
ty a pronenesss to extravagant expenditures and
profligate display, ill suited to a people professing
to be republican, and strongly calculated, we fear,

.4 Veteran of the Revolution.-At the discharge
of the watch yesterday morning, an old colored man
was brought to the watchhouse, habited in the uni-
form of a revolutionary soldier, wearing a small
three cornered cocked hat surmounted with an im-
mensely high feather. His appearance at first led
the magistrate to suppose him either an old fool,
madman or mountebank, but' such a supposition
was quickly dispelled by the old veteran giving a
short but clear and intelligent account of his career
in the revolutionary war, from which it appeared
that he had been a captain in colonel Green's regi-
ment, composed of colored people, and that he now
enjoyed a pension of 120 dollars per annum for his
revolutionary services. He further stated that he
was in the 83d year of his age, and had come here
from Rhode Island to ascertain if a brother of his
was yet living, and if so, to see him once more be-
fore they both quit the world forever.-N. Y. Jour.

From the Darien Telegraph, 6th .inst.
last about one o'clock, two young men, Henry
Brooks, and Joseph McCoy, the former second en-
gineer, the latter carpenter of the steamboat David
Crockett, accompanied by a negro, got into a small
canoe heavily laden with brick andlim o proceed
to the Lower Bluff, where the Crockett was laying
to receive some repairs. The day was hazy, and a
heasy shower fell while they were paddling to ih~eir
destination. When they had just come in view of
that steamboat a squall sprung up, and the canoe
filled with water. The great weight caused her to
sink instantly; and the whole three had to swim for
their lives. The only one, however, that reached
the shore in safety was the negro; Brooks and Mc-

Coy sunk to rise no more! What renders the case
surprising, is the fact that both of the drowned men
were good swimmers. Want of presence of mind
was the cause of their death. Brooks was a native
of New York city, and was the main support of a
respectable widowed mother. She had four sons,
all engineers, one was blown up last summer in the
steam boat Pioneer, and killed; at the same time,
Henry, who met his fate yesterday, was severely
sca'ded, but recovered, alas! to be drowned. Anoth-
er of her sons was destroyed, in the pursuit bf his
business, somewhere else; and thus has this poor
widow been bereft of three of her offspring in the
course of a brief year. On the very day that Henry
met his death he had yielded to the importunities of
his only parent, and taken his passage in the packet
brig Amelia Strong for New York; but never was
his aged mother to look on him again. McCoy was
just recovered from a severe fit of sickness, and was
too weak to make much exertion to save his life.
The bodies were recovered on Friday last, and the
verdict of the inquest was accidental drowning.
They were subsequently decently interred.

The Syracuse Convention.-The State Con-
vention of the democratic party of this state, was
held at Syracuse on Wednesday. The meeting
was organized by the appointment of Nathaniel
Garrow, of Auburn, President, Mr. Varick, of
West Chester, and John Ely, of Green county,
Vice Presidents, and Prosper M. Wetmore, of this
city, Secretary. The business of the meeting was
harmoniously transacted. William L. Marcy was
nominated for Governor, and John Tracy for Lieu-
tenant Governor. Cornelius W. Lawrence, of this
city, and James McCall of Alleghany, were nomi-
nated for electors at large. The electors nominated
For this district are Stephen Allen, Campbell P.
White, Gideon Ostrander and John Targee. We
have not the name of the other electors. The con-
vention adjourned about six o'clock the same day.

Fire.-On Wednesday morning about a quarter
past 3 o'clock, a fire broke out in the storehouse of
the distillery of Mr. Charles Davis, in Davis street,
Roxbury, and at the same time from a stable con-
tiguous, which with their contents were speedily
:onsumed. In the stable three valuable horses per-
shed, one of which was attached to the distillery,
another owned by Mr.Brinley, and the third by Mr.
Gardiner. Three hogs were also burnt. The store
louse was used principally for the storage of empty
molasses casks and shook. Before the fire was got
under some sheds and other small buildings were
destroyed, but it was finally checked before it had
extended to a tannery and soap manufactory to lee-
ward. A considerable number of Boston engines
were early on the ground and co-operated very suc-

The Paris Executioner.-In this year, 1836,
go to the street .Dee Marais, behind the Diorama,
and knock at a pretty looking house, which has no
number over the door; you will be received by a
person whose features bear a very strong resem-
blance to those of the unhappy Louis XVI.; he
will accost you politely, and readily answer every
question you propose to him. He will show you
his library; for he is addicted to literature, andis
a man of taste and refinement in such pursuits. If
you press him closely, he will tell you earnestly,
that he would sacrifice one half of his fortune to en-
sure the abolition of capital punishments. With-
out any reluctance he will allow you to examine
his museum, and will exhibit to you a little mahog-
any guillotine, and a large and broad-bladed sword.
The guillotine is the first model of this instrument
that ever was made;and the sword is the weapon with
which criminals of noble birth (who under the old
regime enjoyed the privilege of not being hanged)
were decapitated. After directing your attention
to a large notch in the edge of the sword near the
hilt, he will say:-" In my father's time, the Noble-
men and courtiers claimed the right of standing
upon the platform of the scaffold, to witness capital
executions. When M. de Lally's head was cut off,
a young Lord jogged my father's arm, diverted the
stroke from the spot it was aimed at, and the blade
came in contact with a tooth, which turned its edge,
and occasioned this notch."
