I do hereby ceitity, that I was affliced with a malignant
disease for a long lime, and I have tried a great many kinds
of medicines, but of no use. I have tried a great many
Doctors, but none could do me any good until I heard of
tilt celebrated Dr. HUET. I went to him-he found me in
a vryr bad state, but he undertook to cure me on the most
reasonable terms-so I went tinder his care. Ha gave me
some of hit medicine, and in a little time I began to ie-
cover, and in tlrtre weeks I was perfectly cured. j there-

who agreed to cure me in a short time, and I paid him his
charge. I remained under his treatmrnt tor the pace of'
three monthls, ansi I found ito relief by him. I then left
him and applies to a celebrated Doctor-he attended me
or two months amd more; I found no relief. t then ap-
plied to three other Doetort, but all in vain. I then gave
up all hopes of ever getting cured. One day I saw Dr.
flue'"s adverti.emcntit; I theln thought proper to try him-I
was then ,at my worst state In les than two weeks I felt
a gleat deal better, and in two weeks more I lelt myself
quite recovered; I gained new strength and fine appetite.

TRUE ECONOMY FAIRLY TESTED.
Tr HE Subscriber having sold out part of his Patent
.I Right for his superior HOUSE. HEATER and
COOKING STOVE, we are now enabled to carry
on the business more extensively, and shall use our
utmost exertions to meet the demand for them this
season. For this purpose we have the store No. 414
Girard Row, Market *street, second door below 12th st.
where we would respectful solicit the public to an
inspection of them as we are satisfied from the practi-
cal experiments which have been made on them
(where close observation' has been taken) that they
are the most economical as well as safe method of
cooking and heating houses ever yet introduced to the
public, sthe same fire which is necessary for the
cooking purposes oftany family will be found suffici.
ent to heat a house large enough for the accommoda-
tion of such family, besides the advantage of having
but one fire in the house, there is no dust, no smell ofa
victuals or gas carried through u he house, but the
pure air from the street or yard is brought in and dif-
ifused through the building after being gently heated
(but not burned) so thatit is pure and pleasant as the
air of summer. We are also prepared to satisfy the
mind of any one that they are at least as good, if not
better, for cooking than any other plan heretofore in-
troduced, with the double advantage of heating the
whole house with the same fire, and thereby saving at
least one third of the fuel used on other plans; cesrtifi-
cates of many persons who had these stove in use du-
ring the severity of last winter, have been obtained
for the purpose of satisfying those who might still
have some doubt on their minds as to their utility and
economy, which certificates may be seen at the store,
and they will be found sufficient to satisfy dy one of
their superiority; there is also inserted into some of
these stoves,a perpetual boiler which will throw a suf-
ficient supply of hot water into any of the rooms for
bathing and culinary purposes. There has also been
some important improvements lately made in the struc-
ture of these stoves which readers still more useful.As
there has been cohisiderable'encouragement and many'
applications for them, the public are respectfully in
vited (and particularly those s bout to build dwelling
houses) to call and see them, as from three to twelve
hundred dollars or more may be saved in the nets ex-
pense of building by constructing the house to suit the
heater, as there heed be but one chimney and one air
flue or ventilator in the house, and thus save the ex-
pense of the stock of chim.nies, marble mantel fire-
place, ;grates, 4c.
N. B.-Let the public (and particularly the ladies)
call and see for themselves, and we are satisfied that
when they see the stoves and ceriificwtes, that we
have' of their utility, economy, and convenience, shat
they will at once adopt this new improvement, and
thereby enjoy the advantage of having the house as
pleasant in the winter as it is in the summer; they
should be put up a while before they are wanted to
be much used, so that the work may have time to

Lunatics in .New Hampshire.-It has been as-
certained from actual returns made to the Legisla-
'ture of New Hampshire, that there are now within
that state at leastfour hundred lunatics! Of these
about one hundred are kept in close confinement-
some in jails and prisons-some in cellars and gar-
rets-some in outhouses or barns, and cages-and
very many in chains. The condition of t ese poor
wretches is horrible almost beyond description.
Feared and abhorred as if they were wild beasts or
demons- shunned as if they were a reproach-they
are shut out from the pale of human sympathy, and
treated as if destitute of human feelings. The
Nashua Gazette gives us particulars relative to
the inhuman treatment of some of these misera-
ble creatures, a few specimens of which we will
'There is a woman now living within a few miles
of Dunstable, who has been confined 25 years in a
narrow box or cage, chained to the floor without
chair or table, or even a bed, and never once leav-
ing her place of confinement in all this long pe-
A married female in a neighboring county was
confined by her husband in an unfinished part of
his dwelling house during the severest part of the
winter of 1834. She was allowed no fire to warm
and little clothing to protect her from the inclemen-
cies of the season. The nipping winter blasts ed-
died through her apartment, and the snow drifted
in at every crevice. Here she remained, calling
upon every passer by for relief in most piteous tones,
until her hands and feet were frozen to an alarming
extent, and the neighbors interfered to preserve her
life. At their entreaty she was removed,and chain
ed in a corner of the kitchen,where she died during
the last winter, without medical attendance-with-
out nursing or assistance-unpitied even upon her
death bed !
An insane pauper in this town is now confined in
a dungeon built in the cellar of his keeper, from
whom he formerly escaped, was pursued, brought
back, and placed there for safe keeping. Shut up
in darkness, he became frantic,as well he might,aud
no one dared approach him-they fastened up eve-
ry outlet of escape, and here for two years has he
been imprisoned, without fire, without clothing,and
no human eye has once seen him! A trough is
placed to receive his food, and here he is fed daily
like the very swine! Is not such a picture too
painful even for imagination?
More Stone Bird Tracks.--Since the discovery
of extraordinary fossil foot steps of unknown birds
in red sand-stone, by Prof. Hitchcock, other and
similar tracks have been found in the Connecticut
valley. At Wethersfield, a pupil of the professor's,
prompted no doubt by the successful researches of
his worthy tutor, has recently discovered a number
of reliques resembling those not long since given to
the public by the professor. These were observed
in several step-stones belonging to the old houses of
that ancient village, and were quite as distinct and
as well characterized as the others above mentioned.
At Rocky Hill, and at Middletown, also, similar
tracks havebeea found. In some instances double
rows of tracks were discovered, and in others, fossil
bones and vegetable remains were found imbedded
in the same new red sand stone.
We have seen these remarkable ornithicuites,
and were as much surprised as have been natur-
alists here and abroad, at the astonishing facts they
Some of them were fifteen inches in length, and"
must have belonged to a bird at least twice as large
as the Ostrich. The larger footsteeps were six feet
asunder. Not a fragment of fossil bone was found
with them, although underneath a mountain of in-
Since the first of these were discovered at North-
ampton, Dr. B uckland has communicated to a scien-
tific society in London, the recent discovery of fos-
sil foot-steps of extinct quadrupeds, found in the red
sand stone quarries of Hesseberg, Germany. These
discoveries are truly revealing extraordinary facts.

The National, a Parisian newspaper of the 6th
of February last, has au account of a bloody tralns-
action, as described by a correspondent of that Jour-
nal who writes as follows from Angouleme:
Our city has been the theatre of a most horrid
event. A monl convicted of having murdered the
husband of a woman whom he loved,was condemn-
ed io hard labor for 15 years. The depositions or
testimony of the widow D -- consisted of charges
the most overwhelming against him, so that when
the President of the Court of Assizes came forward
from his seat to pronounce judgment, the murderer
rose with energy, called Heaven to witness with a
frightful oath which hie pronounced, and turning to-
wards the widow of his victim, cried out, "I am in-
nocent and you have been the cause of my condeinm-
nation; but I swear before the God that hears me
that you shall never die but by my hand."
Tihe audience shuddered at the inspired and reso-
lute voice of the condemned, and the widow, fright-
ened by the terrible threat,fainted away. After this
trial, some time had elapsed, the unhappy widow
almost reduced to poverty by the death of her hus-
band, had sold what little property she possessed,
Freights to Pitlsburg.

Our friends throughout the state will confer am
essential favor on us by forwarding the returns o
the coining election as soon as possible. It is im
portent that correct news of the result should b
early disseminated; for we have had sufficient expe
rience to know that the opposition are by no mean
scrupulous as to the tales which they put in circu
lation on such occasions, for effect elsewhere. W
take this opportunity of returning our'thanks fo
the attention of many correspondents in relation t
the results of the late general election, and solicit
*inewal of their kindness.
A DECLINATION FROM THE WHIG
For sometime past the federal whigs of thi
County have been busy in manufacturing a mon
grel country ticket of delegates tb the Reform Con
vention. It has at length been laid before the pub
lie, and is found to contain the names of several de
mocrats, which we doubt not have been used with
out their consent. In one instance at least wi
know that this has been the case. We subjoin i
letter from Alderman.John Goodman, whose nami
appears on the ticket, declining the intended hono:
of running against the democratic nominations.
.Messrs.. Mflin & Parry:--In the Philadel
phia Gazette" of yesterday, I find my name place
in noininationr by the 'Democratic Whqig" dele
gates, on the ticket for delegates to be Conventioi
to amend or alter the Constitution of the State.
As this was done without my knowledge or con
sent, I have to request you to publish to the voters
of the County of Philadelphia, that I decline the
nomination, and will not consent under any circum
stances to become a candidate.
Philadelphia, Oct. 27, 1836.
Good people, bring a rescue or two."
The situation of the Harrison party in Pennsyl
vania at the present crisis is truly melancholy. Wel
may they cry, "rally and rescue!" Never did i
faction stand so much in need of both, and never:
was there less probability of their finding what they
desire. After the smashing results of the genera
election, a rally is out of the question, and as for
a rescue, it is not easy to imagine whence it is t(
be derived. The whigs of other states are too much
in want of rescue themselves to answer the call
even if their aid were available; but as it is not,
they must fold their arms, witness the striking
of tihe petticoat banner in Pennsylvania, and pre.
pare for the same fate which is the doom of their
brethren in arms. There js no rescue,
But while whiggery is thus trembling on the
verge of a precipice, and sees that the fall is inevi-
table, it is somewhat amusing to observe the feigned
vivacity of its organs throughout the Union, and
especially in Philadelphia. To credit them, ii
must be believed that our late victories in New Jer.

We give below, from the Constitutionalist, full
returns of the late Georgia elections. The whole
Union ticket, with but one exception, is elected to
Congress, the death of General Coffee having ena-
bled the State Rights party to carry 4;olonel Daw-
son. The Legislature has 155 Union men to 111
opposition. The highest Union majority is 823.
So much for the hopes of the enemy in Georgia.
AUGUSTA, Oct. 20.
S Our table contains the full returns of 40 counties
of the state. The Union ticket is elected with the
exception of General Coffee. Col. Dawson being
the highest on the State Rights ticket is conse-
quently elected. We have changed the order of
our recapihulation; we now give it according to the
number of votes each candidate has received. We
are aware that there may be some variation in the
returns published by us, with those published by
other papers; but we believe not much difference
exists. We stated in yesterday's paper the number
of Union men existed to the Legislature to be 155,
and the number of State Rights men 111.

OHIO ELECTION RETURNS.
We are able to give below very nearly the full
returns of this State. We have a majority in both
branches of the Legislature! We have most unex-
pectedly lost one or two members of Congress,
which gives the federalists a majority as they had
before, and one gain. Our friends assure us,
that the failures were not owing to any falling off
in our ranks, but to local and personal difficulties,
which caused many to stay at home;-and many,
very many, voted the whole opposition ticket, as
they preferred Vance to Baldwin at any rate, owing
to his white slavery vote. The vote for Governor
e is not official, and perhaps not exactly correct-but
- as we before said, when the whigs were bursting
themselves, shouting for fifteen and twenty thou-
- sand majority, Itruth brings it down to about six
thousand--we do not believe it will reach seven.
Trimble had in 1828 about 2000 votes more than
Judge Campbell. And the federalists have gained
just about such another victory as they did then,
when Ohio came nobly up alongside of Pennsylva-
nia and New York in November. So our friends
e everywhere say it will be again. Success attend

The barque America was insured from Charles-
ton to New Orleans, and back again; but on her re-
turn voyage, she was endamaged. A claim was
made on other underwriters for the amount of ex-
penses incurred in the repairs.
According to the evidence it appeared that the
vessel had been guaranteed to the insurers, as 'stiff,
staunch, and sound,' or seaworthy in every respect;
and therefore she was insured at a premium of two
per cent. But it was proved that she was insuffi-
cient gt the time of her guarantee; for had she been
stiff, &c. as represented, the perils of such a voyage
could not have damaged hot to the extent stated;
and it is against such risks only that underwriters
usually insure, The claim was therefore dis-
The plaintiff having made an appeal against this
derision in order to be awarded at least that portion
of the expense incurred for repairs rendered neces-
sary by the risks of a sea voyage, the committee of
appeals decided that the sum which could be so
claimed, would not amount to a particular average
under the policy of insurance; and therefore ratified
the award of the arbitration committee.
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 12th.'
Our apprehensions in regard to the state of Indian
feeling along our western borders, are greatly
strengthened by the belief of Gen. Gaines himself,
now on a visit to our city. He is, we are informed,
decidedly of the belief that many of these Indian
tribes are in a great state of excitement, calculated
to lead to distastrous results, unless timely and effi-
The General, with a vigilant eye upon all their
movements, is not neglectful so tar as in him lies,
of those precautionary steps which his knowledge
and prudence suggest, ought to be taken. We do
hope that he will meet with a cheerful and prompt
co-operation on the part of those states, that he may
deem necessary through requisitions, to call to the
aid of the present unprotected frontiers; and we far-
ther hope,that the eyes of the federal executive may
be opened to the impending danger, which on this
subject appear to us to be strangely blinded, either
by the effect of advancing years or some strange de-
lusion; there was a time when Gen. Jackson knew
better, and would have been the last man in the
community to remain in wilful ignorance of the ex-
isting attitude of the Indians beyond the Mississip-
pi towards us.

in this declaration, you are authorised to offer the

The sums may be increased or diminished,within
any reasonable limits, to suit our whig friends, and
if they prefer, they may add a similar stake on the
event in North Carolina.

THE PnosPECTS.-The prospects of the democ-
'racy were never more cheering than they are at the
present moment in Ohio. The result of the elec-
tions which have Just terminated, are calculated to
inspire our political friends, both at. home and a-
broad, with confidence and hope. It is true that
the republican candidate for Governor has been de-
feated by a small majority. This was expected.-
The selection was an unfortunate one. It was made
without sufficient investigation or inquiry into his
claims upon the suffrages of the democratic party,
We have the consolation, however, to know that
the complexion of the next Legislature will be deci-
dedly republican, and that there is no chance for the
reelection of the solitude Sehator--that our State
'will no longer be misrepresented in the Senate of
the Nation by this panic maker .and bank retainer.
We again repeat the assertion-the prospects of the
Democracy of Ohio were never brighter than at the
present moment, We have the majority in the
State, decidedly and unequivocally, and all that is'
necessary in order to ensure a complete and signal
triumph on the 4th of November next, is for us to
turn out in our strength; one more "long pull, and
a strong pull, and a pull altogether," and Ohio will
be safe for Van Buren and the real hero of the
UNION OF BOTH PARTIES IN THE CAUSE OF RE-
PORM IN MARYLAND.-There is an evident deter-
mination of strong and distinguished men of both
the great political parties of Maryland, to unite in
forming a good state constitution. Those who
profit by the abuses of the minority power, cannot
make a successful appeal to the honest portion of
the whigs to abandon those principles on state poli-
cy, simply because the friends of Mr. Van Buren
are ready to unite in the laudable work of reform.
Fall fashions for Whig Gentlemen.-Long
faces with downcast looks a little askance. This
fashion has been chiefly adopted since the election
news from Pennsylvania. It's all the go. and a ve-
Epicurean Luxury.-A late writer mentions
among the delicacies which he observed in a Chi-
nese market, one article which puzzled him very
much to learn the name and nature of. He found
numbers of this delicate commodity strung on a
string, each of which resembled in size, shape and
hardness, a shoemaker's awl. Curious to ascer-
tain the cognomen, and if possible, thelquality of an
article so highly prized, he found, on further enqui-
ry, that it was neither more nor less than duck's
tongues!--N. Y. Sun.
WoRSEr THAN BARBAROUS.-The LowellCourier
tells us that a fellow calling himself a man, a fo-
reigner, having a demand against a fellow country-
man, purchased a writ a few days ago, went with a
constable, who is also a foreigner, and stripped the
house of every thing it contained, furniture, wood,
provisions--every thing. The wife and two small
children of the debtor, (who had gone away for a
few days) were in the house, and were left there
with no bed, no food, no fire, no fuel. The creditor
returning to survey the desolation he had made, saw
under the head of the infant in the cradle, a small
pillow; this he also drew out, and added to the pelf
which he had taken, leaving the child upon the bare
board. That night the all but houseless mother
wrapped herself in an old cloak which had escaped
the eye of the creditor, and slept upon the slightly
warm hearth, without bed or pillow.

The lectures of Baron Allibert, at the Hospital
of St. Louis, are drawing to a close. In one of his
late addresses he highly interested and amused his
hearers by a dissertation, which threatens to put an
end to the fashion become almost universal among
the young in France, namely, that of wearing their
,eards long. He treated of a complaint calledLa
nentagre-verius mentagre-from the chin, the
part aliected with it. Quoniam a mento fere ori-

Romans. Pliny relates, in terms of horror, that a
new disease, unknown before his time, disfigured
he faces of men in such a hideous manner, that
hough not mortal, many would prefer death to the
sufferings it produced. The medical men were so
completelyy puzzled by it, that it became necessary
o have recourse to the famous school at Alexan-

SuGAn--The manufacture of this article is too
well understood to need description; but there are
many particulars relating to the planting and growth
of the cane which may be interesting.
Cane grows naturally in the East Indies, and is
supposed to be indigenous to the West; authors,
however,differ in their opinions concerning it-one
thing is certain: it grows wild in both North and
Soon after the settlement of Hispaniola, the Spa-
nish governor Ovando sent to the Canary Islands
to obtain, either as a luxury or curiosity, a few
sticks of sugar cane. At the time, however,'the
art of sugar making was not discovered, but the
juice was squeezed out and usel as sweetening.
Though sugar cane is said to have been first dis-
covered by Nearchus, about three hundred years
before the Christian era, at the time of Alexander's
expedition into Judea,yet 'sweet cane' is often men-
tioned in the Bible as far back as the time of Mo-
It appears to have been introduced to the notice
of Europeans by the crusaders, and through their
means its cultivation spread quickly along the Me-
diterranean to the Canaries, whence Ovando ob-
This plant makes the most beautiful appearance
in the West.Indies, and Havana sugar is much
stronger and sweeter than that which comes from
Manilla. The stalk has forty or fifty joints, and va-
ries from three to six or twelve feet in height; ma-
ny stalks proceed from one root and are crowned
by tufts of leaves; the bark when ripe is of a beau-
ful golden yellow, streaked with red. From the
middle of five or six of these rises a silver wand, at
least three feet in height, which bears upon its top
a bunch of white feathers, beautifully edged with
purple. This is its blossom, and I cannot conceive
of a more splendid sight, than a field of sugar canes
waving in the sun light.
The plant blossoms in November, and ripens in
the following spring-different plantations at differ-
The sugar harvest is, like the Italian vintage, a
season of jollity and merriment. The juice of the
sugar cane is so nourishing and healthful, that all
ranks depend upon it. The sick negroes recover
their strength, and the healthy ones grow more ro-
bust and vigorous. The cattle, who eat but the
green tops, mingled with skimmings from the boil-
ers, thrive in spite of additional labor. Pigs and
poultry fatten on the mere refuse. When sugar
canes are planted, the ground is accurately marked
out in squares of three or four feet wide; a hole is
dug in the middle of each, and into this the new
plans, which are tops of old ones, are laid horizon-
tally, in pairs.
Each top has five or six joints; each joint pro-
ducing several stalks, which appear in about a fort-
night. The plantation must now be kept clear of
weeds and monkeys, which last attack the cane in
the night; to get rid of them, negroes, who are very
fond of their flesh, willingly watch all night with
