Philadelnhia, -Dec. 15, 1833.
I do hereby certify, that I WEa. fflic'ed with a malignant
disease for a long time, and I have tried a great many kinds
of medicines, but of no use. I have tried a gteat many
Doctors, hut none could do me an- good until I heard of
the celcbiated Dr. HUtEr. I went to him-he found mein
a '%ry bad st;Ie, but he undertook to cure me on the mast
reasonable te> is-so I wrnt under his care. He gave me
some of' lis medicine, snd in a little !ioe I began to Ie-
cover, and in three weeks I was Iperfectly cured. J there-
fbte can recommend all those afflicted with the same dis-
ease to the candour and superior knowledge of Dr HUET,
No. S7 uortl Eighth st. ISAAC MELLIN,
Northampton County.

Philadelphia, March 3, 1836.
To DR. HUET-
Dear Sir: I return you my sincere thanks for your valu-
able medtieine anti speedy cure you have made of me. I
had the misfortune to be afflicted with a disease called Go
northbia. and not understanding it I applits to a Doctor,
who agreed to core me in a short time, and I paid him his
charge. I remained unm4er his treatmen tfor thle space of'
three months, anml I found no relief by him. I then left
him and applied to a celebrated Doctor-he attended me
or two months and more; I found no relief. I then ap-
plied to three other Doctors, but all in vain. I then gave
up all hopes of ever getting cured. One day I saw Dr.
Huei's advertisement; 1 then thought proper to try him-I
was then at my worst state In less than two weeks I felt
a gieat deal better, and in two weeks more I felt myself
quite recovered; I gained new strength and fine appetite.
and was able to attend to my business. I would advise all
who suffer under this disease to lose no time to apply te
him,who can relieve them. I return him my sincere thanks.
1 rmeain your humble servant,
HENRY BULLUCK, in Green street,
No. 22 Danger's Court.

January 10th, 1835.
About two years ago I caught the secret disease, and not
understanding it I applied to a Doctor, who agreed to cure
me in a short time, and I paid him his charge and remain-
ed under his treatment for the space of three months, and
found no relief. Ithen left him, and applied to another
Doctor, and was under his care for six months, aid still
getting worse I was forced to go to the Hospital, and there
remained for a long time, anti got no relief; but fortunate-
ly one of D)r. Hmiet's books fell into my hands; I read it,
and was inclined to try him; but my money heing run out,
I left the Hostital in a s, te of despair, and went to him
and stated;my case- he took me in land to cure mejiii three
weeks, which I could not believe; but thanks be to God, in
one week I went to wotk, and in less than thrte weeks was
entirely well, and any one applying to you, and being
doubtful of the same, can call on me, and I will satisfy
them. JOHN MORTIMER.
th'Dr. Huet will give my direction.

TRUE ECONOMY FAIRLY TESTED.
T HE Subscriber having sold out part of his Patent
. 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, as the same fire which is necessary for the
cooking purposes of any 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 of
victuals or gas carried through the house, but the
pure air from the street or yard is brought in and dif-
fused through the building after being gently heated
(but not burned) so that it 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; certifi-
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 see.: at the store,
and they will be found sufficient to satisfy any 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 renders still more useful.As
there has been considerable encouragement and many
applications for them, the public are respectfully in
vited (and particularly those t bout to build dwelling
houses) to call and see them, as from three to twelve
hundred dollars or more may be saved in the nett ex-
pense of building by constructing the house to suit the
heater, as there need be but one chimney and one air
flue or ventilator in the house, and thus save the ex-
pense of the stock of chimnies, marble mantel fire
place, grates, <^c.
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 certificates 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
settle.

DR. CHERRY'S
ASTRINGENTI PILLS,
ESTABLISHED for the radical cure of Gleet and
long continued urethral discharges, which ul-
timately embitter the life-enervate the mind, and
produce a wasting of the whole body. These Pills
have a peculiar Tonic and Astringent effect, (and in-
fallibly certain,) from all known remedies-they con-
tain no mercury, c9pavia, or any other ingredients in-
jurious to the constitution. Dr. Cherry's connexion of
30 years with the London Loc Hospital, as its resi-
dent Physician, has afforded him a more ample scope,
for not only jinyestigating, but experimenting on those
hitherto obstintt.14sepaus, which bat few other med-
ical men have enjoyed, /eir treatment having aot only
baffled and perplexed the preseRt race of medical
practitioners, but even the ancients all.Fw their issabil-
ity to eradicate them, and thus millions ha-ye ben
compelled to drag out a miserable existence, shunnigg
society and all the pleasures of life, from the debilita-
ted, nervous, and inactive state of their bodies, and
after fruitlessly, and at enormous expense, trying the
inert, painful and irritating plans recommended and
laid down by medical authorities, (who themselves
candidly admit they have not been able to succeed in
many cases, have over and again in disgust and dim,
appointment, dipcardad medicine altogether, and made
up their minds to allow o4ch complaints their own
course, apd thus many, alas! have been hurried to
their last abode. The .countless nuis f of indivi-
duals that have been c'ed,, after having ibeae gqyen

fying to Dr Cherry-and the universal success oi fis
Pills is acknowledged by the heads of the proj tssiln
in Europe, as well as in every State in this vast coun-
try, to form a New Era in the radical cure of Gleets,
and other analogous diseases. When a Gonorrhcea lasts
more than a month, it is then termed a Gleet, which
will be effectually removed in a few days, which un-

|EIGHTH OF JANUARY CELEBRATION
The Committee of 'Arrarigement will meet Til
EVENING, at 7 o'clock, at Ilolahan's. An eleci
for officers will take place.

Whig'tactics are frequently ingenious, general
complicated, because of the known inability of th
party to arrive at any point by direct means, ai
are sometimes amusing ; for, whatever the intei
they are sure to fail. In their list of manouvre
there is one to which the opposition are certain
have recourse after an election. IIaving flatters
themselves with victory before the battle, and ha
ing exhausted the rules of arithmetic and the del
sions of hope to prove that they are about to t
umph, when the contrary takes place, they are coi
pulled to let themselves down as easy as may
under the circumstances. To this end, they co
tinue to doubt the accuracy of returns, until dou
becomes ridiculous, and then theyhave recourse on
more to their arithmetic to prove that ifi they did n
succeed, they were within an ace of it. They tell tl
public in the first place that the President elect w
be a minority President. That proved to be untru
they commence undervaluing majorities; they a
sert that they were barely sufficient to carry the d
mocratic candidate into power, and that hereaft
whiggery, under whatever new name it may s
fit to assume, cannot fail of success.
In reply to statements of this kind, the Alba]
Argus, which goes thoroughly into the qucstio
has the following able and irrefutable answer.
The N. Y. Express in speaking of the Van B
rYn majority in Mississippi, which was 291, sa
"of such slender majorities are almost all the V
Buren victories made up," to which the Argus i
sponds:--" Let us look at facts and figures:
Two states, Maine and New York, give an a
gregate majority for Mr Van Buren, greater
3000 than the entire majority for Harrison in t
seven states that cast their votes in his favor. Ti'hn
the Maine and New York majority is 35,761. H1
-rison's majority in all the states that voted for hi
viz: Vermont, Ohio, Indiana, New Jersey, Mail
land, Delaware and Kentucky, is 32,77,3.
Two states also, (New Hampshire and N-
York) give a majority for Mr Van Buren gi:)e
than the united majorities: of Harrison and Wclb
-viz: N. H. and N. Y. 40,5911; the entire major
ties of the two availablees" 40,356.
Again, rejecting the two largest states, Per
sylvania and New York, and five states (Ne
Hampshire, Ma-ine, Virginia, Alabama, aneI M
souri) give a greater majority by 23)0 for, Mr V.
than the entire aggregate of majorities for Gene
Harrison, viz: 35,155 for the forrier, and 32,7
for the latter.
Aga-in, the state of New York alone gave a n

majorities of White and Webster in all the sta'
that voted for them; and within 5000 vyc.es of HI
prison's entire majority in the seven states that vot
for him.
Again: Mr Van Buren received the votes

York, New Hampshire aiid Maine, give a grca
aggregate majority for Mr V. B., than the enti
majorities obtained by the three availablee' IH
rision, White and Webster, in all the ten sta,
that voted for them. Mr V. B.'s aggregate major
in the four is 55,255-and the aggregate of the thr
available is 52,798.
Lastlyr Mr Van Buren obtainmrt tii votes of fo
states,in which the majority wvs less than 100
"It is in relation to one of these that the Evxpre
utters its gross misreprcsentatfron. Omittiig -tf
votes of'these states altogether; and Mr Van Bure
is still elected by the colleges by a majority of
votes over the entire vote obtained by Messrs. Ha
rison,White, Webster, and Blank. And, omittir
these four states also, Mr V. B.'s majority of t]
votes of the people over the united vote of Harrisor
White and Wpf)ter, is 23,529!
And yet we are gravely assured by a federal prior
aaa matter of fact, that it is of such slender major
ties as 291 in Mississippi, that "almost all the Vt
Buren victories are made up!"' The public w:

Splendid Prospect.--Mr. Clay remains in pul
lie life, and will not devote the whole of his atter
tion to mending his fences at Ashland. We kno'
not whether he still aspires to reaching the Presiden
cy, but according to the calculation of the Ne'
York Evening Post, his approximation to it is r:
other slow. That paper says: "LThlirty-seven Elect<
ral votes were given for Mr. Clay in 1824, and i
1832 he received thirty-eight votes--being a gai
of one vote in eight years, at which rate ofincreas
he might succeed to the Presidency in about eight
hundred years, should he live so long."

CC General Jesup having reached the Wahoo Swamp,
ot had marched through and through it without find-
hie ing a solitary Indian. All had left the swamp. From
ill this it seems that Oseola has at last abandoned his

'ter verer and more successful battles with the hostiles,
eec than reports here first gave him credit for. The
Seminoles gave battle and generally battle freely,
and would again unless badly used and sorely cut

'"' very much like declining, for the present at least,
another engagement. Although we do not like this

ir" IMPORTANT FRO?; HAVANA.
:es We are indebted to Mr Kidd, of Merchants' Ex-
ity change,for the following important intelligence from
-e flavana, of th Dec. 1836:
We are at present in this island, in a very un-
M, plea)ant situation. Vou will no doubt have heard
,o. some time ago of the changes which have taken
place in Old Spain-the restoration of the Cortez,
and the proclaiming there,as the law of the land, the
he 'opstittjton of I 812.
en Some few weeksnaggo, Gonzales, the Governor of
22 St Jago, de Cuba, thought proper to proclaimn the
ar- said constitution as being the law of the country
under his control. General Tacon, the Governor-
ng General of the island,seeing the impropriety of such
he a measure, required Gonzales to revoke said procla-
n, nation. 'Tho latter, however, not only would not
do so, but, on the contrary, persoverps and asserts
it, that he is possessing equal power in 4is govern-
ri- ment with those of the General Governor.
in 'The consequence is, that about 2500 troops have
ill been sent from this place and neighborhood,by land,
and nearly as many more are now held here, in rca-
of diners to go by sea, for tbe reduction of St Jago,
of and the capture, if possible, of Gonzales; and their
as departure is only deiayad for the return of a British
e- sloop of war from St. Jago, for whici place she left
this about two weeks since, with a last letter of tre
imorstrance from 'Tacon to Gonzalea.
'I'hree ,teanmboats, two brigs of war, twelve
schooners, two British and one German ship, are
b- now ready to convey troops; hut, I snn sorry to add,
1- that there is very little confidence now placed in
w the troops in the cause they are about. A frigate
a- sailed from this about eight days ago, to blockade
w St Jago. HOw all this will end, it is now hard to
say. We are all anxiety for the arrival ofthe Bri-
tish sloop ofwar, with Gonaalea' answer to T'a-
con.

n A correspondent of the New Orleans Courier,
e makes the following remarks in relation to the late
it intelligence from Texas;
"Nearly every thing published purporting to hgve
been received by the schooner Creole from Tampi-
co, relative to the movement of Mexican troops and
theim object, is incorrect; and that stating that Bra-


h vo had departed for Texas, stuck upon the Mer-
e chant's Exchange Bulletin Board, altogether so.--
e According to authentic accounts received from San
e Louis Potosi, dated November 18, Gen. Bravo was
e still in that city, occupied in engaging provisions,
f &e., for the army from the commercial house of
Rubin, who (did not appear willing to furnish the I
Y supplies on the faith of the government. In conse-
quence of this, Bravo had written to the Minister t
t of War, that he would renounce the command jf Q
he was not furnished with the means to carry into
etfect the i.c.':.',ltd campaign against Texas in the t
spring.
No intention whatever existed of now invading c
Texas, and in truth, it cannot be supposed, .if it be
but taken into consideration, that all the country
fionj the borders of Rio Bravo to the Sabine river
is imp asaab!e, a fact of which the Mexicans are well v
aware.

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Saturday, Dec. 31.
DEPOSIT BANKS.
The House took up for consideration the follow-
ing resolution, heretofore offered by Mr Garland, of
Virginia:-
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treasury
communicate to this House, if within his power, the
dividends and surpluse'- which were declared by,
and the surpluses and contingent funds remaining
in the several Banks in which the public money
was deposited for the years 1833, '34, '35 and '36,
severally.
Mr Harlan heretofore moved to amend the reso-
lution as follows: "And that he state also whether
the salary or compensation of an agent at the seat
of the General Government, composes e part of the
expenses of the said Banks, the name of the agent,
and the several sums paid him by the same institu-
tions respectively."
The pending question was on the motion hereto-
fore submitted hy Mr Hannegan, of Ind. to lay the
resolution on the table; on which motion the yeas
and nays were ordered, and were yeas 28, nays 141.
So the House refused to lay the resolution on the
table.
The question then recurred on the amendment of
Mr Harlan.
Mr Granger called for the yeas and nays, which
were ordered.
Mr Harlan said, it had been currently reported
for some time past, both in and out of the House,
that such an agent was in existence, who had con-
nection with these banks, who had his office in this
city, and who carried on his correspondence under
the frank of the Secretary of the Treasury. If there
was such an agent, the people had a right to know
the nature of his connection with the Treasury De-
partment; and the mere statement to that effect
which had gone forth through the public press, was
sufficient to justify the institution of an inquiry.
Mr Garland of Va. said that he did not consider
the amendment pertinent to the subject before the
House. He was willing, however, to vote for it.-
These banks had riot been chartered by the Govern-
ment of the United States,and they owed no respon-
sibility to the Government,except so far as they had
entered into contract with it; and if the Banks
thought proper to expend their money in employ-
ing an agent at Washington or elsewhere, they
might do so without expending a single dollar of
the public treasure committed to their charge. If
any improper connection could be shown between
the Treasury Department and Reuben M Whitney,
who had been so often referred to, or any other in-
dividual, he was willing that the enquiry should be
made, and that the evil, if any evil existed, should
be corrected. It had been charged also, that the
friends of the administration in this House, wished
to conceal hidden fraud and corruption in the Exe-
cutive Department. He, for one, was willing that
the fullest investigation should be had, though he
did not believe that tire result would justify tb. :',s-
picions which were afloat
After some remarks from Messrs Thompson of S.
C., D J Pearce, and Toucey, Mr Vanderpoel moved
to amend the amendment, by directing an enquiry
whether there is an agent to communicate between
the banks and the treasury department in relation to
the deposits, what salary he has, &c. &c.; pending
which amendment the House proceeded to the or-
dc" of the day.
The use of the Hall was granted to Dr Howe, on
Tuesday evening netx, for the exhibition of the pu-
pils of the New England Institution for the Blind.
Aftersomne time spent in private business,the House
adjourned.

From Ile Hlarford Conn. Times.
The following article from the Worcester Re-
publican is particularly worthy of attention, as it
lucidly states the views of the democracy in relation
to a "permanent judiciary." The democratic party
since the days of the immortal Jefferson have la-
bored to render the Judges of our Superior Courts
responsible to the people for their acts. They have
made favorable advances upon public opinion, but
have not as yet accomplished their object. It is the
last hold of the federalists, and they defend it with
desperation. The days of life officers are fast num-
bering. The era of the people's sovereignty in
every department of our government is at hand.-
The popular voice in" every quarter of the Union
denounces an "independent judiciary" as the only
dlepartr4ent that enables its representatives to disre-
gard the will of the people and bid them defiance.
But its supporters will not but a short time longer
be able to stay reform. They may be desperate in
their efforts to stifle the rising nmirmur, but it is
spreading far and wide, and will soon become uni-
versal.
JvnDcriry.--"In the Judiciary," says Mr. Jeff-
erson, "the Judges of the highest courts are depen-
dent on none 'hut themselves In England, where
the judges were named and removable at the will
of a hereditary Executive, from which branch most
misrule was learned, and has followed, it was a
great point gained, by fixing them for life, to make
them independent of that Executive. But in a
government founded on PvUBLIc W\LLL,this principle

ecutiye be chosen ima the same way, and for the
same term, by those whose agent lip is to be; and
have no screen of a council behind which to skulk
from responsibility. It'has been thought that the
people are not competent electors of judges learned
in law'. But I do not know that this ls truo, and
if doubtful, we should follow principle. In this as j
in every other election, they should be guided by
reputation, which would not err oftener, perhaps,
than by the present mode of appointment.

F1Isi th. Liverppool Mercury.
MRS. WOOD'S AMINA.
There are few operas which'have enjoyed more
lasting popularity than Bellini'a Sonnambula. It is
not only attractively engaging for the veriest tyro in
music,but winning and captivating even to the pro-
found musician. The true secret of its pre-eminent
success is certainly not to be attributed solely to the
degree of learning which the young and lamented
composer has displayed in his CHEF 1n' OUVwE: the
instrumentation, in fact, is in many instances la-
mentably deficient. Bellini, like the majority of the
masters of the modern Italian school, never had the
tact to avail himself of the resources of an orches-
tra. The accompaniments are, for the most part,
feeble and inappropriate-the combinations being
formed often of noisy chords, with the too frequent
absence of elaborate harmonies and ingenious mo-
dulations. The great characteristic beauty of the
music consists in its easy,flowing, and gushing me-
lody; and in the possession of that essential quality,
Bellini has had few rivals. The elegance of
thought, and the gracefulness of expression,are eve-
rywhere manifest, and the feelings are suddenly
subdued before the mind can be sufficiently com-
posed to examine severely, and put to the test of
criticism the origin of the transient impression. The
Sonnambula owes its fame, however, to our minds,
not to its merits as a musical work. We must look,
therefore, for another cause for the origin of its tri-
umphant career; and we find it amply acccounted
for in the exquisite libretto attached to the ope-
ra.-The story is indeed most simple, and its sim-
plicity constitutes its charm. The innocent victim
of sonnambulism is a creature of natural sentiment
and innate purity. From the moment that the he-
roine appears on' the scene, the sympathies of the
audience are enlisted in her behalf, and they are
carried on with an overwhelming force until the
denouement. The unbounded affection of Amina,
t is most skilfully yet naturally developed, and the
situation in which she is placed by walking in her
I sleep, are of the most exciting and appealing inte-
. rest. It cannot, consequently, be a matter of sur-
prise, that the Sonnambula, in every variety of form
and shape in which it has been represented, should
have always been most enthusiastically received.
I We have witnessed its performance in several lan-
e guages, in various parts of the Continent, as a dra-
t ma, without musical adjuncts. We have hard the
e French and Italian versions, as an opera, and we
n have likewise seen it as ballet. The poetry of mo-
- tion has been added to the other modes of treating
. the story; and one of the most lasting terpsichorean
e inventions is the ever interesting Sonnainbula. 'Dan-
I' seuses, cantatrici,' and 'histrionic artistes,' all of su-
y perior excellence, have in turn essayed the charac-
t ter, and invariably has the 'furore' of the dilettanti'
been wound up to the highest pitch. We were,
therefore, not at all astonished to find such a blil-
liant company assembled en Wednesday night week
e at the Theatre Royal, to behold Mrs Wood's third
I representation of Amina. To the writer of this ar-
s tide, it presented the feature ef novelty, for altho'
e we have seen almost every singer, actress and dan-
cer of note in this and other countries perform the
part, it had not been our previous good fortune to
witness the exertions of Mrs Wood in the'role.'
0 With our present feelings, we scarcely dare trust
k ourselves to write an account of her acting and
singing of this arduous character. No language
can do adequate justice to Mrs Wood's admirable
impersonation of Amina. We, however, will fear-
lessly venture to hazard one proposition, and that is,
we challenge comparison with the exertions of Ma-
libran and Grisi in the same part, and we de main-
d tain, with pride and exultation, for this great tri-
umph of a native vocalist, that the conception and
execution ef the points in Amina's character, by
SMrs Wood, have never been excelled, even by the
t two highly gifted artists whom we have mentioned.
) The originality of Mrs Wood's performance parti-
S cularly struck us. It differs essentially from that of
r any other actress, in many respects for the better,
t and upon the whole inferior to none. In the hands
of Mrs Wood the part of Amina is not overdone.
There is the most judicious admixture of light and
h shade. The charming 'naivete' in the earlier scenes
d contrasts finely with the passionate bursts in the
latter. The maidenly coyness with the lover, and
the indignant outpourings of outraged virtue, were
in excellent keeping. In the bed-room scene, the
fixed eye and death-like paleness of the visage,
whilst under the influence of sleep, prepared the
r mind for the withering glance of indignation, and
the countenance lighted up with conflicting emo-
i tions when wrongfully accused of infidelity. There
was no exaggeration in this portion of the drama;
h it was not, as we have often seen, an exhibition of
t tumbling and posturing, but the act of clinging to
the lover was done with a modesty of desperation, if
I we may be allowed the term to convey our mean-
y ing. And the fearful appearance on the roof of the
f house, the crossing of the water-mill, and the walk
r to the front of the stage, could not have been ren-
dered more fearfully picturesque. As Mrs Wood
1 sank on the boards to sing the 'adagio,' the lament

Feature of picking up the flower after the finale,oould
only have emanated from, and been inspired by, ge-
nius. The entire piece of acting is fervid; it ia re-
plete with vigorous fire and animation,ittarmingled
with the more tranquil and soft touches of the soul.
Of Mrs Wood's vocalination, we can only say that
it was fully equal to her histronic efforts. She has
a suparh organ, and is a wonderful musician. The
power and compass of her voice are truly surpris-
ing. Her intonation is remarkably correct; in the
most daring tours de force, she was invariably
strictly in tune, although at times singing at the top
of her voice, and executing the most complicated
cadences. Her chromatic runs, her shakes in alto,
the distances which she took, with ease and pre-
cision, electrified her delighted listeners, and her
careful attention in the concerted music is not less

Docility of the Canmel.-A thick cherry stick
with a cross at the end of it, serves to guide the
animal; a gentle tap on the right side of his head
sends him to the left, and on the opposite, make;
him turn back again to the right; a knock on the
back of his neck stops him, and a few blows be
tween his ears, brings him on his knees, if accom
panied by a guttural sound, resembling, as thi
Arabs say, the pronunciation of their Khe:" tm
make him move quicker, it is necessary to pricl
him with the point of a stick on the shoulders.-
They fall so naturally into military figures,that it.is
difficult to conceive that they do it with direction.
[J/lajor' Skinner.

.lrab attention to Children.-The Boston Mer
cantile Journal, says that the fierce, barbaric and
unchristian Arabs of the desert, are often more at
tentive than christians to some of the duties of life
particularly the instruction of their children in thi
knowledge of letters. We learn from travellers tha
among this wandering people, an empty tent is ap
propriated in each camp to the purposes of religious
worship, for thceentertainment of strangers, and fo
a place of instruction for their children. In this ten
all the children assemble every morning before day
break; and are by an Iman,or other religious person
taught to read the prayers from the Koran, whicl
are put before them in Arabic characters, inscribe&
on board, and also to commit these prayers to me
mory.

GRAY HAIis.-We believe the cause of gray
hairs in the heads of persons, who have hardly pas
sed the prime of life, and who exhibit no othe
marks attendant on age, has never been satisfacto
rily accounted for. This phenomenon has beer
sometimes ascribed to sorrow-the effect of severe
and protracted grief-and we doubt not that such
is sometimes the case. We believe, however, that
it is more frequently the consequence of fear. Wi
have remarked that those persons who have been
frequently exposed to great dangers becomes gray
at, comparatively, an early age-while the hair o
those whose habits of life, mental organization, or
temperament, keep them aloof from danger, re-
tains its pristine hue and glossy appearance, unti
they are far advanced into the vale of years. Hence
we find that a man who has fought duels, or been
engaged in brawls, or battles by sea or land, will
almost always exhibit these venerable marks, before
he has reacli"eeven the meridian of life, unless the
organ of Combativeness, as Phrenologists call it, o1
physical courage, is tremendously developed-
while on the other hand, persons, who from their
station in society, or peculiar habits, have seldom,
or never beer exposed to imminent danger, as wo-
men, OF men of sedentary lives, are seldom visited
with gray hairs until well advanced in years. We
could bring forward many illustrations to support
our hypothesis, but wish to avoid being personal.-
We have no doubt, however, that the Court of En-
quiry now being held at Frederick, being composed
of officers who have been much exposed in the
Seminole and Creek campaigns, cat boast of a
number of hoary-headed men-,or men who' soon
-will be hoary.hiaded. Indeed, most of our Court
Martials, either in the Army or Navy, are princi-
pally made up of officers who, to judge from the co-
lor of their hair, are gray-headed veterans.-Boston
Journal.

GEOLOGICAL TinRAsuRns.-Providence seems to
have especially favored one particular district in the
immediate vicinity of Galway, by furnishing on it,
independent of the black marb.le. quarries ( which
are now extensively worked) the most abundant
supply of the most superior materials for the man-
facture of glass, alum, and of superfine pottery.-
T'he sand is of the sand stone quality, nearly white,
and the earth was discovered unexpectedly in a pit
or excavation r tade on a hill to the depth of 25
feet, all of the same solid substance, but varying in
coloring, and becoming almost black and very hard
towards the bottom, at which geologists will he sur-
prised and puzzled to hear an oak tree lay buried
%thich had been evidently felcld with an axe.-
What the underneath strata may be, has not yet
been investigated; but we are very much mistaken
in the persevering habits and intelligence of the lord
of the soil if ho will rest for many days without
further investigating a material which may prove a
source of immense value to that community, to the
prosperity of which he has indefatigably attended
for a series of years.- Galway Patriot,

Gods of the Patagonians.-Of the Patagonians,
the old navigator Pigafetta writes, that when
mny of them die, there appear ten or twelve devils
leaping and dancing about the body of the dead,
ind seem to have their bodies painted with divers
:olors, and that among others there is one seen big-
ger than the residue, who maketh great mirth and
eloicing. 'Ihis great devil they call Setebos, and
;all the less Cheleule." It has been supposed that
rom this passage Shakspeare borrowed the demon
jetebos, introduced in the TsMpysT, act i. scene ii.;
I muft t~ey:; his art is of such power,
It would control nty dam's god, Setebos,
And make a vassal of him."
[here are other passages in the play in which the
lint may have been taken from the narrative of
'igafetta.-Editburgh Cabinet Library,J\Ato.XXI.


South 4.inerican Indians.--t is very seldom
that these Indians take any prisonerrand every one
fights to the last moment, rather than expose him-
self to the more or less dreadful fate which may be-
fal him, according to the humor of the victors. Dur-
ing my residence at Antuco,a military party which
returned from the Southern Andes, had succeeded
in capturing a chief of the detested tribe of the
Moluches. The unfortunate prisoner was destined
to be a victim to their vengeance, and the interven-
tion of the Chilian comnWaadanth and the offer of
considerable presents, had no influence over the
incensed Indians, who impatiently waited for the
next morning. The prisoner looked forward to hia
inevitable fate with that stupid indifference which
has nothing in common with the courage of the
hero. The man who, Inoxp than half degenerated,
has never experienced the happiness of a softer
feeling, resigns without emotion the cheerless boon
of-existence. The noise of the festival in honor of
the triumph resounded throughout the night,and at
daybreak a large circle of the men and all thp wo-
men assembled before the fort. The pisoger stood
in the centre of a smaller circle composed of twen-
ty warrrors, each amied with a long lance. Three

CHRISTMAS HYMN,
Hail happy morn--hail holy child,
Hail mercy's sacred spring!
Upon whose birth the angels'smiled,-
Our Saviour and our King !
Oh!.like the star whose guiding rays
The Eastern sages bless'd,
Thy love, Oh! Lord, shall light our ways,
And give the weary rest.

Land of the Prophets lift your voice,
Awake! Bethulia's hills,
Ye mountain cedars now rejoice,
Be glad ye sacred rills.
No dews to-night the leaf shall dim,
No tears from heaven descend,
Whilst all the conscious flow'rs for Him
Their early sweets shall blend.

Adoring angels filled the sky,
And thus their song began,
"Glory to God who dwells on high,
And peace on earth to man."
With grateful hearts the shepherds run,
Their flocks fear no alarms,
And kneel to heaven's eternal Son,
In Mary's virgin arms.

There's joy in ev'ry land to-day,
The Cottage fire looks bright,
The sea-boy on his distant way
Recalls its cheerful light;
And as the dove when winds oppose,
Will rest her weary wing,
Thus hearts today, from Sharon's rose,
The balm of peace will bring.

Hail gentle babe! the patriarch's hope,
The Prophet's fond desire,
The mystic Word which heav'n shall ope,
And ev'ry heart inspire!
Oh! come not when this life shall cease,
With dreadful vengeance crown'd,
But be, Oh! Lord, that babe of peace,
The joyful shepherds found.

An omnibus has been started by an English gen-
tleman at Athens,and a mail-coach by Government,
which run four times a day between Athens and
Piraeus. A new paper in Greek and German, call-
ed "Hope," also has appeared, which professes to
be particularly for Germany, that they may know
what their countrymen are doing there.

SALEM, N. J. Dec. 31, 1836;
J. Coffee-Sir: I arrived here at 6 P. M. and have-
* found a gentleman from near the brg Laurel, but can-
not give any information of her situation, as there ha-
been no communication with her. The above gentle-.
man has a boat which I have used, which is calcula .
ted to go through the ice, and I shall start from the,
shore for the brig at daylight in the morning, and shaltl
use every exertion to board her. and I hope by Mon-
day morning I shall be able to give you all the par-
ticulars. The brig lays a half a milefrom the shore,.
and on Black Ditch Bar, the same place the ship Mis-
souri. Yours, &c. S. PEDRICK,
Agent for the Underwriters.
We learn the following from Capt A Turley, who-
left Reedy Island, yesterday morning, Jan. 1, at 10 A..
M. A large ship was seen yesterday, at 10, A. M..
from Reedy Island, standing up as far as the upper-
point of Bombay Hook, working her way through the-
ice, wind from the southward. Capt T. supposes she-
may have reached the Island by 3 P. M. As she?
showed no signal nor cross in her Ioretopsail, thinks itW
cannot be the packet. Nothing had been seen from.-
the Island of the towboat or the Monongahela. Brig;
Laurel still on Black Ditch Bar. Capt 'Turley has no-
doubt but all the outward bound fleet lefP Reedy Is-
la'id this morning, as the wind was strong from NW:.
which theyjwere waiting for."

BRIG LAUREL,
Jan 1st 1837-10 A. M&.
Mr Coffee-Sir, I got on board the brig a, fw mi-
nutes ago,and am glad to say,that she has not-received


- '4


deserving of unqualified etulogium. Altogether.she
is the greatest singer, perhaps, that this country has
ever produced, and every attempt atrivalry is pure-
ly absurd. Nature has been prodigal of her gifts to
Mrs Wood, and a refined mind, with hard study,
has not been wanting to encourage its natural at-
tributes. And this is the singer whom cabal, envy,
and intrigue, have in turn assailed. Mrs Wood has
been forced to abandon her native country, hy the
vindictiveness of a metro po~itan clique. Liverpool
has, however, done her justice, and the amateurs of
this towni have not been slow to find out, and en-
courage her talents. She must, eventually, assume
her proper position in the musical world. The late
festival has decided the question as to Mrs Wood's
capabilities to be the Queen of Song. It is her
proper title, and who dares to dispute the throne
with her?
We have left ourselves but 4pack to add that Mr
Wood's song of the m4,usic oflElvino, is second only
to that 9f Ruhini, for whpm it was expressly com-
posed. Mr Wood has no English rival in the vo-
cal portion. Mr Brough has a superb bass voice,
which is capable of the highest cultivation. The
whole opera reflects the highest erpeit on all the
parties engaged in its reVmresoetation.--Liverpool
Mercury.
