I do hereby certify, that I was afflic'ed with a malignan
disease for a long time, and I bave' tried a great many kind
of mndicmes, but ot no use. I have tried a gecat man
I)octors, but none could do me lvai gool until I heard o
the celebrated Dr. HUET. I went to him-he bunrd me it
a' sry bad state, but he undertook to cure me on the mos
rt-asnable verms-,o I went under his care. He gave mt
some otf his rtdivine, aind in a little itinie I begin to ie
cover, and in three weeks I was perfectly cured. J there
tioe can recommend all those afflicted with the same dis
ea'e to the candour and superior know ledge of Dr HUE1

three motishs, anrl I fiurndi to relief by his,. I then lefi
him at)d applied to a celebrated Doctor-he attended me
or two inouiithls awd more; I found no relief. I then ap-
plied ti Ilhree other Doctors, but all in vain. I then gavi
up a;l hlopts of' ever getting cured. One day I saw Dr.
Flue 's advertl.'rmtnt; I then thought proper to try him-I

About iwo years ag'o I caught the secret disease, and not
understanding it I applied to a Doctor, who agreed to culre
me in a short time. and I paid himn his charge anid remain-
ed lnder his treatmentt for Ihe space of three mouths, atnd
found no relief. I then Itt him, and applied to anollther
Doctor, and was Wnider liscare for six months, a,,' still
getting worse I was forced to go to the Hospital, and there
remained for a long tune, and got no relief; but fortunate-
ly one of Dr. Hl'et's books fell into my hasdi; I road it,
and was inclined to try him; but my money being run out,
I left the Hostital in a si nte of despair, and went to him
and stated my case- hI took mne in hand to cure me'in three
weeks, which I could not believe; but thanks be to God, in
one week I went to work, and in less than thrte weeks was
eutirely well, and any one applying to you, and being
loubt'ul of the same, can call on me, and I will satisfy

Caution to Insolvent Debtors.
DECEMBER TERM, 1836.
T HE subscriber begs leave to caution persons
whom they may employ to do their business, as
many cases are dismissed at every Term, owing to
their papers being improperly prepared and their bu-
siness badly attended to. There are several persons
who have recently commenced this business, both in
the city and county, who are unknown to the Court,
ignorant of the Insolvent Laws themselves, and might
involve poor and unfortunate men in greater difficul-
ties than they may already be in.
The subscriber flatters himself that many years ex-
perience in this business, having taken through the
Conrt several thousand persons, and.has been so for-
tunate as never to have a solitary case dismissed, by
any mismanagement or inattention on his part. Per-
sons should make application to me in proper time for
the Court, at my old established Office, No. 84 Lom-
bard street, below 4th. M. M. RUSSELL.

"that she may feel
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is
To have a thankless child!"


The scenes also at the castle of Gloster were noble.
The fiery speech on the refusal of his daugh-
ter and son-in.law to see him closed ia a fine burst,
as he said-
------"bid them come forth,
Or at the chamber door, I'll beat the drum,
Till it cry, sleep to death."-
Each of the three last three words appeared a riven
thunder cloud. The storm had spent'itself, andl
then came the melting of -the broken nature be-
fore Rigan; they must indeed be little given to the
melting mood, who felt no moisture ,on their eye-
lids, as Kean's voice trembled in broken suffoca-
tions through that pitiable entreaty-
"Dear daughter, I confess that I am old,
Age is unnecessary; on my knees I beg
That you'll vouchsafe me raiment, bed and food."
The picture was complete. Humiliated wretch-
ednes.I.c.'i- no lower. Prostration sat upon
iswhole frame; unstrung every muscle, and
slendered every tone; quenched his age and bent
his head. But as soon as Goneril was added to
the scene, he burst out with a magnificent contrast
and re-action; again his bodyscrews up to its ri-
gidity, and the maddening passions began their
play-and the conflict of the soul rages between
angry pride and crushing grief, until with a 'rally-
ing effort he rears his spirit in the presence of ma-
lignant foes-
"You think, I'll weep; ,
No, I'll not weep:-"
Kean gave this with great and profound energy;
all the storm scenes were fine impressive acting,
both in the vehement and pathetic passages. We
are more than half inclined to prefer, with a few
exceptions, the pathos to the passions of Kean's
acting. We might instance the solemn and moral .
beauty with which he repeated this. passage-
"You houseless poverty, &c."
And his manner of bringing out that cutting
phrase, "take physic pomp," there was a fulness of
fervent and earnest meaning. It is in passages
such as these that the philosophic actor of Shakes.
peare makes his power felt; it is in these he must
prove that he understands the grandeur, and is ad-
mitted to the secret places of his author's soul.
The scenes with Edgar on the waste were glo-
rious on both sides. Nothing could excel either;
and especially in that part where they reclined on
the ground; it had all that eloquence of expression
and position could give it. Stuart here deserves
our highest attribute, and that is but simple justice
to his merits. His mad tone through all its higher
part was nobly sustained. He had many marked
and touching pathos which he breathed into the
simple phrases--"Tom's cold," and "Who gives
poor Tom any thing?" We have noticed in this
gentleman a rapid and perceptible advancement in
his art. He has talent and diligence. He desires
to please, and deserves to succeed.
Kean was equal to himself in the latter inter-
views with blinked Glo'ster. His description of
justice particularly, was keen and biting as it need
be, but his soul seemed to swell irs largest lofti-
ness in that little sentence, "Aye, every inch a
King!"
The catastrophe, with Cordelia dead near him,-
was fearfully heart-rending. How beautiful, how
passing beautiful, how worthy of the wild, the se-
cret, the lovely imaginings of our home-loved, our
heart-loved band, was the sad music of Kean's ex-
pression over the lifeless child.
"Cordelia, Cordelia, stay a little, ha!
What is't thou say'st? Her voice was ever soft,
Gentle and low."
And never was despair uttered with Ipoks or tones
more deadly true, than those in which he embodied
the king's last accents.
"Why should a dog, a horse, a tat have life,
And thou no breath at all; 0, thou wilt come no
more,
Never, never, never, never;
Play you under this button;-thank you, sir,-
Do you see this? Look on her-look-her lips- '
Lodk there--look there!" (Dies.)

THE CONVENTION.
Wepublish in another column the official returns
of Juniata county, which decide the complexion of
the three representative delegates from Union, Mif-
flin, and Juniata. The whig papers for several days
past have been claiming ,one of these delegates; but
it will be seen that the three Van Buren candidates
have been elected. Allowing the whigs, therefore,
three delegates from Allegheny, instead of two, as
set down in our table on Saturday, the Convention
stands: Van Buren, 67; Harrison, 66.

CONVENTION.
We find in the Pennsylvania Inquirer of yester-
day the following paragraph:
"Another important fact must be mentioned.-
Whether the friends of Harrison have or have not
elected a majority of the delegates, it is certain that
the aggregate vote given for their candidates is seve-
ral thousand more than the aggregate vote given to
the Van Buren candidates; and that hence a majori-
ty of the people of Pennsylvania have pronounced
against the Draco doctrines and agragrian principles
of the ultra reformers of the day. In confirmation
of this view we may state,that in the city and coun-
ty of Philadelphia alone, the Van Buren Delegate
tickets fell one thousand behind the Van Buren e-
Icctoral ticket. The case was similar in other coun-
ties."
It must have been known to the editor of that
paper that the Van Buren party have a majority
of one certain in the Convention, and it must have
been equally as' well shown that the Van Buren De-
legates received a much larger number of votes
throughout the State than the opposition Delegates,
and a larger number-of votes than the Van Buren
Electors.
The only part of the State where the Van Bn-
ren Delegates fell much short of of the Electors,
was in apart of the county of Philadelphia, viz:
Southwark and Moyamensing. In these districts
the difference was caused by a number of the im-
mediate followers of Doctor Sutherland, who voted
the democratic Electoral ticket, but opposed the de-
mocratic county nominations by sustaining the op-
position delegates. In Moyamensing this was par-
ticularly the case. In these districts, likewise, the
slanders of the opposition were most .extensively
circulated, and probably were not without effect.
Although we have but one Van Buren majority
in the Convention, yet it is well known that many
of the whig and antimasonic members are zealous
reformers, and will act with us in procuring all re-
quisite amendments. The whigs of the city of
Philadelphia will find themselves in a small mino-
rity in the Convention. Of this there can be no
doubt.
As soon as we. can., prepare the table, we will
publish a complete list of the delegates. In the
meantime, we assure our friends that the Conven-
tion is safe and sound, maugre all whig reports and
calculations.

relina, wiicai nave a very iavoraule -",ecL.1 In
North Carolina, the gain since the Governor's elec-
tion, in the 12 counties now heard from, is 1593.
Should a similar spirit prevail throughout the State,
the vote of North Carolina is cast for the democrat-
ic candidates.
From Georgia, the returns, so far, show an in-
creased vote since the October elections, for the de-
mocratic cause. The gain is in a quarter where
the opposition are strong, and promises well for the
rest of the State, as the closeness of the late strug-
gle has doubtless stimulated our friends to exertion.

In the 2d District the vote is a close one. It may
be that CABOT, the democratic candidate, has beat-

The enemy have again been worsted at Bunker
Hill. Charlestown has elected ten democratic re-
presentatives to the State Legislature, in the place
of ten whigs last year. Medford sends two, and
Maiden three, in place of the whig representatives
chosen last year.
The Boston Advocate expresses its hope that the
democracy has succeeded in redeeming the State.
."From every town heard from," continues the same
print, "there is a democratic gain, and these indica-
tions come to us from the towns immediately in this
vicinity, and in the city itself, where the greatest
exertions have been made by the whig*, with the
greatest means of influence. The whigs are ex-
ceedingly disappointed at their vote in this city,
where the efforts of the leaders have been unprece-
dented. On the whole, it looks well with us all
around, but we hope our friends will not imitate
the savage exultations of the whigs, when they have
any anticipated success.

voted the Van Buren ticket, and the same thing has
happened, we learn, in the County, The following

The Electors of President and Vice President,
throughout the Union, assemble at their respective
state capitols on the FIRST WEDNESDAY in DECEM-
BER, to perform the duties enjoined on them by the
Constitution of the United States, and the laws en-
acted in pursuance thereof.
By an act of the Legislature of this State, passed
2d of February,1802,it is provided,that "each elector
shall, before the hour of 9 o'clock,A. M. on the day
next preceding the day of election of President and
Vice President of the United States, give notice to
the Governor that he is at the seat of Government,
and ready to perform the duties of an elector."
On the'day of the meeting of the electors, "be-
tween the hours of 9 and 10, A. M." it is made
the duty'of the Governor to inform the Legislature
who of the electors are at the seat of government,
when that body, by joint vote, fill any vacancy tha
may exist.
The punctual attendance of the members of both
branches of the Legislature, at the opening of the
session, is no less material. The case where there
is a vacancy in the Electoral College, and where
both branches of the Legislature have not a quorum
of members present, on the day on which the elec-
tors MUST VOTE, is not provided for by law.

OUR OWN MONTGOMERY.
It is with feelings of the highest gratification we
again revert to the late election in this county. The
democracy of Montgomery stands unrivalled in the
State. Our majority over the Jackson vote of 1832
exceeds that of any other county,and when we take
into consideration the unparalleled efforts of the
bank party, and their numerous unfounded reports
gotten up for political effect, we have cause to be
proud of the Roman firmness of our democracy and
their attachment to that sacred cause handed down
from our patriotic sires. The democratic majori-
ties in October and November are greater than ever
given in this county upon any former occasion. Let


We find in the Boston Courier, the subjoined
notice of a meteoric shower, on the morning of the
13th, as observed at Cambridge,where the philoso-
phical and curious were all on the alert, anticipat-
ing display similar to that of 1834.
The meteoric shower' was noticed this morn-
ing, but was far inferior to what has been described
on former occasions. At half past three, there were
a few light clouds in the south-east, from which
flashes of lightning were seen in rapid suscession--
the stars were brilliant, occasionally obscured, in
part, by thin floating vapor. At 18 minutes before
four o'clock, a latge meteor darted from the north;
it was quite luminous, and in size apparently equal
to one-half the full moon. This was succeeded by
many smaller meteors; and 23 were counted by me,
during an hour and a half; several were seen by
other persons in the room, which escaped my no-
tice. During this time, one was observed of great
brilliancy, having a luminous train, apparently a
yard in length. The lightning continued the whole
time, and there were considerable appearance of
Aurora Borealis. W.
Cambridge, Nov. 13, 1836.

Insurance Case.-The case of George 0 Lam-
son vs. Edward A Mix, Elihu L Mix, and W
Westervelt, having occupied the U S Circuit Court
three days, terminated yesterday morning in a ver-
dict for the plaintiff. The following is a brief out-
lite of it:-In December, 1833, Elihu Mix was ei-
ther whole or part owner of the ship'General Smith,
and the other defendants were interested in a voy-
age which she was about to make to the western
coast of America to purchase Lima wood. Previous
to the vessel's sailing, the defendants obtained a let-
ter of credit from H D Cotheal, of this city, in favor
of Edward A Mix, who went with the ship, to the
plaintiff, who was then doing business at Carthago,
in the province of Costa Rica. Cotheal's letter in-
structed Lamson to furnish Edward A Mix with
whatever funds he might want, and to obtain from
him in return~his draft at 60 days, on Elihu L Mix,
and also to have the ship consigned on her home-
ward voyage to Cotheal. Acting upon this letter,
Lamson guaranteed the payment of a cargo of Li-
ma wood, which Edward A Mix purchased from a
man named Gerald. But, instead of obtaing
Edward A Mix's draft on Elihu L Mix, as
Cotheal had instructed him to do, he forward-
ed his own draft on Elihu L Mix to Co-
theal, to get it accepted. Elihu L Mix re-
fused to accept, unless a commission of five
per cent, charged by Lamson, was deducted.
This Cotheal declined doing, and about the same
time learned that the ship had been consigned to
Fitch, Brolhers & Co, of Marseilles, but that the
bill of lading had been made out to him. As Lam-
son had not obtained the draft of Edward A. Mix,
nor was the ship consigned to Cotheal, he consi-
dered that the conditions on which he gave the let-
ter of credit had not been observed, and that he was
exonerated from any liability to Lamson; he there-
fore declined having any thing further to do in the
matter, and left Lamson to look to the defendants
for the amount of indebtedness on their account,and
Lamson instituted the present suit to recover it.-
The principal point of defence was, that the letter
of credit was given,and the property obtained solely
foi account of Edward A. Mix, and that the other
two defendants were in no way responsible for it.
It was shown however on the part of the plaintiff,
that the three defendants were interestedin the voy-
age, and had all taken a part.in procuring the letter
of credit from Cotheal. Verdict for the Plaintiff
$1299 79. For the Plaintiff, Messrs. Selden &
Law. For the defendants, the Messrs. Staples.--

A fatal accident befel a young man on the rail
road last week. He was found in the morning,
greatly mangled, the cars having passed over him
and dissected his body in two or three places. His
death must have been instantaneous. It is suppos-
ed that he had been walking on the track when the
cars met; and that the approach of the train of the
cars from behind was unobserved.-[Westchester
Village Record.
There were two men killed at Dayton on election
day. One, a weak, feeble man, was attacked on
party grounds, and killed the man who assaulted
him in self defence. The other was caused by fir-
ing a salute, as we are informed.-[Cincinnati Ga-
zette.

FROM MEXICO.
By the schooner LouisIANA we have received
regular files of Mexican papers. Our dates from
the city of Mexico are to the 2d, and those of Tam-
pico to the 15th: We find nothing of interest in
them.
The Lon1isrANA reports that she was boarded
forty miles off Tampico bay by the Texian armed
privateer THOMAs TOBy, Captain loyt; the com-
mander of the Thomas Toby informed the captain
of the Louisiana,that he had been cruizing offTam-
pico for several days; that he had declared the ports
of Vera Cruz and Tnmpico under blockade; had
fired into theport of the town several shots; and
that he had taken as a prize the Mexican schooner
formerly known as the Mentor, and had sent her to
Galveston. He had likrwise conveyed a challenge
to fight any vessel belonging to theMexican navy.-
N. Orleans Bee, Nov. 3.

FROM CADIZ.
We learn (says the Boston Daily Advertiser of
Nov. 16th) from Captain Coffin, of ship Xylon.from
Cadiz, Oct. 13, that at the last accounts from Mala-
ga, the Carlist army under Gomnez,was on its march
towards Estramadura, from Cordova, which they
had captured, leaving Malaga unmolested. No other
recent change had taken place in the affairs of Spain;
and the communication with the interior was very
much obstructed.

The King ofEngland has given his assent to the
act passed by the Provincial Legislature of Canada,
providing for the construction of the Quebec and
Maine Rail Road. The act has been reserved for


his particular notice, oh account of its interference
with the royal prerogative, by taking possession of a
part of some waste lands belonging to the Crown.

FROM FLORIDA.
Extract of a letter dated Key West, Oct. 20:-
"The Indians made their appearance a short time
since on Key Tavinier, where they surprised the
schooner Mary, Capt. Bethell, burnt the vessel, and
slightly woundedd some of the crew before they could
make their escape.
"Lieutenant Powell, of the U. S. sloop of war
Vandalia, which is now lying in our port, has gone
in pursuit of them with 170 men under his com-
mand, accompanied by the United States cutter
Washington, and eight row boats. By the last ac-
counts, the expedition had reached Indian Key,and
were making preparation to scour the country."

,q novel sort of Inquest.-An inquest was held
yesterday on the body of an infant which was found
yesterday morning enclosed in a large bottle of
spirits, on the stoop of a house in the upper part of
the city. It is supposed that burglars had the pre-
ceding night broken into the house of a surgeon,
and carried off the bottle and its contents, and that
on discovering what sort of plunder they had. they


From the Pensacob Gaz.
TaE SEMIXSOLE WR.-The want of any thing
ike regular communication with the seat bf war,
keeps us in the most painful state of suspense in
regard to the operations of the army. It must be
admitted that the numerous obstacles which are
known to stand in the way of a successful and speedy
termination of the campaign, are calculated to in-
spire fearful forebodings of its results; and accidents
besides, have we fear,done much to frustrate the well
arranged plans of Gov. Call for supplying the troops
in the field with provisions. We have heard that
considerable supplies were ordered early in the
campaign to be sent from St. Marks to the Suwan-
nee, and they did not reach their destination until
weeks after, according to the most liberal calcula-
tion, they should have arrived. It is said too that
a great quantity of corn and other provisions in-
tended for the army, was deposited in a store house
at St. Marks; the house which was built over the
water, fell down with the weight it contained, and
the whole of its contents were ruined. Then a-
gain the large steamboat Convoy, containing a
very full cargo of provisions, destined for Tampa
Bay, sprung aleak near the port, and put in here
in a sinking condition; nearly her whole cargo was
damaged and much of it was entirely ruined; and
last of all is the loss of the Lieutenant Izard on the
bar of the Withlacoochee.
It is believed that the character, condition and
resources of the Florida Indians are but little under-
stood, except by those who have actually witnessed
their mode of warfare. The campaign made by
Gen. Jackson against the Florida Indians, eighteen
years ago, when they were stronger than they are
now, is often quoted to prove that the subjugation
of the Scminoles is no such difficult' matter as is
thought; but it should be remembered that their
condition was quite different from what it is at
present. They were then banded together in
small tribes. Every petty chief had his town; the
guides had no difficulty in conducting General
Jackson directly to them, and he subdued them in
detail. Besides,they were not all unfriendly to the
whites. But now they all fight aa one man. His-
tory scarcely furnishes a parallel for the fidelity
which the people have shown to one another. We
hear of no single instance of treachery or defection
amoug them.
Since the war began not one of the hostiles has
come out from among his brethern. They have no
towns to defend, and their women and children
protect themselves by flight. The climate is their
friend too. Summer, which brings disease and
death to their pursuers; has no terrors for them, and
they are strangers to the rigors of winter. They
have nearly2000 square miles in which to hide
themselves, and the most satisfactory intelligence
as to where they were yesterday, affords not the

within a hundred yards of the whole army of the
whites. During the last campaign it is said they
were many instances of this; while the whites were

ping of trees, the building of fires, and the cracking
of cart-w' ips, and all sorts of noises, mnch upon

The true cause of Col. Lane's suicide is stated by
the Mobile Chronicle to be his chagrin at the shame-

GEo. CATLIN.-We hope there is some mistake
in the following which we find in the Milwauki Ad-
vertiser of the 27th ultimo:
From the last Green Bay Democrat, we learn
that George Catlin, Esq. the owner of a collection
of Paintings,,illustrating the habits 'and customs of
the Indians-together with a young English noble-
man, have been taken prisoners by the Sioux, at
Cote de Prairie on the the St. Peters, where they
had gone to examine the Red Pipe Quarry.-Buffa-
lo Adv. Nov. 10.

DYsPErsrA.--An intelligent writer remarks that
the principal cause of that peculiarly American dis-
ease, dyspepsia,is the eating of hot bread,hot cakes,
crust which is dough in consistency, butter,and the
use of tea. To this he might add,as a still stronger
cause, the horrible American habit of eating so fast,
bolting down provisions half-masticated, and forc-
ing the stomach to a labor which nature never in-
tended. If our people were constructed to fit their
habits,their teeth would be placed in their stomachs.
They are of no use in their present location, except
as subjects for the skill of the dentist.
A slow eater is generally a moderate eater-he,
is satisfied with less food than a bolter-he relishes
it more,and he never fepls uncomfortable and heavy
after a meal.-Albany Daily Advertiser.

The Russian Raul-road.-The Emperor Nicho-
i-ta tex-tremeTy anxious for the introduction into
Russia of these wonderful accelerations of com-
merce. In this spirit it is that he has afforded his
countenance and protection to the first undertaking
of this kind that has been set on foot in his king-
dom. The St Petersburg and Zarseoc-Selo Rail-
way is the property of shareholders, among whom
the Emperor himself is an extensive proprietor,and
it has most extensive privileges conceded to it by
an ordinance, dated the 21st of March last. It
commences nearly in the heart of St. Petersburg,
and continuing for about 18 miles, terminates in
the great Park of Pawlowsk, a place of great resort
for the citizens, and where a splendid edifice of
public entertainment, with concert and ball rooms,
conservatories, water, gardens, and fountains have
been eracted. The iron work on the rail-road is


of the most massive description. The rails weigh
55 lbs per yard. The locomotive engines are pro-
vided with an apparatus which clears the rails from
all obstructions before the on-coming of the engines;
and to give notice to the inhabitants of the approach
of the times, each carries a piece of musical me-
chanism, which gives out a sound equal to that of
a brass band. The line was commenced in April
last, and was to be opened in the course of October.

School for Scandal.-There is still one of the
performers alive who was in the original cast of
the school for Scandal, and the only one, the wi-
dow of the late John Philip Kemble, wh~o, when
Miss P. Hopkins, played Maria. She is now about
80 years of age. Her first husband was Mr Brere-
ton, an actor of talent attached to the Covent Gar-
den company.
"In England a wife is only obtained by a perse-
verance of many years. It is not in in society, but
in the secluded wood-walk, or in the boat on the
lake, that two hearts learn to understand each other.
For the public the whole is a mystery. In both sex-
es, to have merited a selection so formed, is a great
honor. Such an arrangement allows the woman
to feel and to judge, and preserves her from that
ignorant impatience which causes young French
girls to endow a husband in prospect with all man-
ner of perfections. The independence of the En-
glish women before marriage, is followed by a sub-
mission and restraint after it strictly exemplary.-
These facts are rigorously consequent, the one on
the other. It is because there is freedom and reason
in the choice, that the bond is rendered close and
solid. For this reason it is respected, and its rup-
ture marked with the brand of infamy. In France,
a separation impliesno reproach: because of the ma-
ny unions patched up, it is inevitable that some
must prove intolerable, and society has no right to
show itself severe to those whom its own bad or-
g'anization has driven upon vice.-Philosophical
Tour in England, by Victor Hennequin.

ORIGINAL ANECDOTE OF MADAME
MALIBRAN.
Templeton, the singer, may attribute the popu-
larity he enjoys entirely to Malibran, who, with a
condescension rarely equalled by individuals hold-
ing so exalted a rank in the profession as she did,
took upon herself the, somewhat difficult labor of
becoming his instructrers. This, too, she did in a
mode peculiar to herself, blending good nature with
a little'satirical, approaching to epigramatic point;
and thus she succeeded in animating him (to use a
mythological phrase) comparatively, with a spark of
her own Promethean fire. When he was not au
fait at stage business, she would sometimes address
him after this style--"You are cold, inanimate; are
you a man'! Have you a wife 1 and do you love
that wife?" On hi1 replying in the affirmative, she
would thus resume her. lecture: "Then would you,
if she were in such trouble, stand so far from her,
and regard her with such indifference?' Approach
closer to me, and seem very sorry for my situation;
come to me; I shall not bite you."
On one occasion, to the chagrin of Templeton,
and to the great amusement of the performers, who
one and all heartily enjoyed the joke, she exclaim-
ed, Ah,'Mr Templeton, you are a very fine tall
man, but you are a very bad lover.. I would rather
have a Mr Woodleg* for my husband, pointing to
the prompter Thus Templeton was actually sham-
ed out of his dramatic torpor, and from that time
acquired increased confidence and energy, which
have availed him so greatly with the public. His
song in La Sonnambula, Still so gently o'er me
stealing," is a masterpiece of 'excellent singing and
acting; and'the whole of his performance with Ma-
libran was entitled to the highest enconiums. She
world repeatedly stop him good humoredly, sing
passages to him, saying, I should do it thus, were
I in your situation;" and she positively drilled
him until his singing and acting in some instan-
ces were, in a comparative degree, nearly on a par
.with those of his kind and accomplished teacher.
It is stated, that on one occasion Templeton, en-
couraged by her request that he would act up to her-
in one of the principal love scenes during the re.
hearsal, (and every allowance must be made for his
feelings, when we consider the irresistable excite-
ment by which he was born away, until his reason
was made a captive by passion,) kissed her neck.
She instantly checked him, and observed, Sir, that
is not necessary; you may affect to make love to
me as much as yon please before the public, but let
me desire you never to repeat what you have just
done. Confused at her manner, vexed at his own
impetuosity, Templeton apologized respectfully to
her, and she passed over the slight offence with as
much kindness as she had before exhibited a noble
and just resentment.
Her voice was a contra'alto, in character, but it
extended to a range that was astonishing; she could
descend to F and E flat below the lower C in the
treble clef, and reach C and D in alt.

Mr Woodleg, to whom Malibran here alluded
to, is a Mr Wilmot, who, some years ago, had his
leg amputated, and is consequently compelled to
wear a wooden leg.

HINDOO WOMEN.
A native writer, educated at the Hindoo College,
has given, in a series of papers on the domestic
manners, etc. of the Hindoos, the following picture
of the married ladies of this country:--" The mar,
tried women of the Hindoos aro a set of curious
beings. As soon as the nuptial day passes away,
their souls become entranced in a multiplicity of
pleasures. Then is the time for them to learn all
those arts that may heighten their fascinations and
captivate the hearts of their husbands. Then is
the time for them to polish their locks with molten
wax; to adorn their noses and foreheads with thick
spots of ink and red lead; to beautify their persons
with powdered turmeric; to deck their necks with
garlands of flowers, and make their lips and teeth,
by meesee, as black as the wing of a raven. Rose-
water, ottar, mathagossa, (a fragrant stuff for the
hair,) and a variety of odoriferous things, are then
lavished, to impregnate their hair with fragrance,
and no means remain untried to monopolise all the
love and affection of their esteemed lords. In or-
der to combine in them all the charms of beauty,

and properly termed cnlrurgery, is no douDt an ele-
gant and learned art, and its professors must be
considered as gentlemen. But let us reflect on
what shaving is. Shaving, as the greater part of
adult men must be aware, is the business of clearing
away the beard, and is usually performed once a
day. A vast proportion of mankind shave them-
selves, while others resort to the surgeon-deserted
persons commonly called barbers. But in whatev-
er manner or by whomsoever it is done, it is a pain-
ful and annoying operation. In the first place,
there is no certain way of getting proper instru-
ments. Razors are articles of so capricious a nature,
that even their own makers do not know when they
are good or bad. You may buy a magnificent and
expensive case, and find not a single blade of merit
among them all. Or you may pick up an old one
for a shilling, which turns out excellent-at least
for a time, for there is no calculating on a good ra-
zor cqatinuing good. Nay, a razor of respectable
reputation will sometimes all of a sudden become
execrable-you lay it aside, and try it again in a
month-when, lo! it has resumed all its primitive
excellence! Razors almost appear to be inspired
with human passions. They get offended at too
much work, and apparently determine to have a lit-
tle period of recreation. Or they get too fine in
their ideas, and cut their old friends without mercy.
If a man will take pains to study the humors of his
razors, he may shave with some degree of'comfort.
But how few have time, or will condescend to do
any such thing! Razors require to be coddled up
in flannel, and frequently sharpened. The difficul-
ty is to secure the means of sharpening them.-
There are ingenious artists who profess to have in-
vented strops and pastes infallible; but'apparently
it is not given to all men to be able to use these
things for the desired end. Strops seem to be as
capricious as razors. Then, even supposing that
your razor be tolerable,which it is once or twice in a
lifetime, what a difficulty in laying it on! To
shave a beard of average extent (some people have
acre-breadths of cheek, and all under cultivation,)
requires not less than one hundred strokes or appli-
cations of the instrument. Now, how little chance
is there of all these being effected unsanguineously.
The laying on of a razor is one of the most critical
things in the world. Great care won't do; it re-
quires a lucky venturesomeness--one might almost
say, carelessness. The angle of incidence must be
studied, but every thing else depends on a kind of
lively and unthinking dash which cautious people
are just the most unfit to acquire. A pause of an
instant before the sweep, gives a wound an inch
long, while the easy-minded and unreflecting fight
,pway without harm. In short, what with the faith-
lessness of instruments,and the difficulty of employ-
ing them, shaving is one of the greatest and most
constant torments that afflict humanity.
Finding it to be so in our own hands, and in
those of unlettered barbers, I am inclined to think
that our ancestors were at least wise in their mode
of shaving. They considered it as a surgical ope-
ration, and had it done by surgeons, accordingly;
while we, their degenerate posterity, render it too
truly surgical, through an opposite course of con-
duct. What I would propose is, that shaving should
be resumed by the surgeons. Every man to his
trade, and every trade to its man, are inseparable
maxims. Shaving as naturally falls under the at-
tention of the profession alluded to, as blood-letting
and amputation. Does it not requite the same de-
licate skill, and almost the same weapons? Does
not the comfort of man almost as forcibly require
that it should be done by the hands of persons con-
versant with human anatomy? The basin was alike
serviceable in making lather and in receiving the
proceeds of venesection; and so should the educa-
tion of the surgeon be equally serviceable in the art
of cutting off'limbs and the art of cutting off beards.
Perhaps it might be difficult Ito reconcile the sur-
geons to shaving. During the last war the Rus-
sian government invited into its service a number
of young British surgeons, to whom it gave the ap-
propriate rank in both the army and navy, as well
as very considerable pay., What was the astonish-
ment of the young gentlemen when they found that
part of their duty was to shave the common soldiers
and sailors! The remonstrances made on this oc-
casion, prove how unwilling the home profession
would be to take up the razor. But let us not de-
spair. The universities, whose conduct in allowing
