Vol. XL.-New Series, Vol. IV. /' SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS, FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 27, 1826. Number 8.

"Wake, soldier !-wake !-thy war horse waits,
To bear thee to the battle back;
Thou slumberest at a foeman's gates;
Thy dog would break thy bivouac;
Thy plume is trailing in the dust,
And thy red falchion gathering rust.
Sleep soldier!-sleep!-thy warfare o'er;
Not thine own bugle's loudest strain
Shall ever break thy slumbers more,
With summons to the battle-plain;
A trumpet-note more loud and deep,
-Must rouse thee from thy leaden sleep!

Thou nced'st nor helm nor cuirass, now,
-Bceyond the Grecian hero's boast;
Thou wilt not quail tliy naked brow,
Nor shrink before a myriam host,
'For head and heel alike are sound,
A thousand arrows cannot wound !
'Thy mother is not in thy dreams,
With that wild, widowed look she wore
The day-how long to her it seems!
She kissed thee, at the cottage door,
And sickened at tlhe sound ofjoy
That bore away her only boy!
Sleep ..1 i. '-1 i thy mother wait,
To hes.' l, t,, :.r, the blast;
Thy d. -. rh 'i ncay find thie gate,
Ani bid her home to thee at last;
He cannot tell a sadder tale,
Than didthy 'clarion, on the gale,
When last-and far away--she heard
echoes tfil!

Oh thou Atlantic, dark and deep,
Thou wilderness of' waves,
'Where all the tribes of earth might sleep
In their uncrowded graves!
The sunbeams on thy bosom'wake,
Yet never light thy gloom;
'The teinpests burst, yet never shake
Thy depths, thou mighty tomb!
Thou thing of mystery, stern and drear,
Thy secrets who hath told?
The warrior and his sword are there,
The merchant and his-gold.
There lie their myriads in thy p all
Secure from steel and storm;
And ho, the feaster on them all,
The gnawing canker-worm.
Yet on this wave the mountain's brow'
Once glow'd in morning's beam;'
And, like an arrow from the bow,
Out sprang the crystal stream;
And on its bank the olive grove,
And the peace's luxury,
And the damask rose-the night-bird's love-'
Perfumed the deep blue sky.
Where art thou, proud Atlantis, now?
Where are thy bright aind brave?
Priest, people, warriors' living flow ?
Look on that azure wave!
Crime deepened on the recreant land,
Long guilty, long forgiven; *
Ttiere p.5w-er upreartd the bloody hand,
And Ilhce L s.cAt' at Heaven.
The word went forth---the word of woe--,
The judgment-thunders pealed;
The fiery earthquake blazed below;
Its final doom was sealed.
Now on its halls of ivory
Lie giant weed and ocean slime,
Burying from man's and and angel's eye
The land of wrath and crime.

Were some Howard to make the tour of' our
world, and take the gange of each form ofhuman
misery, among the evils of the first magnitude
would be found an intemperate use of intoxicat-
ing substances.
i Other prominent evils are confined to particu-
lar spheres. Despotism swings his iron rod
over some nations only. Limited in their ex-
tent are the horrors of slavery and war, the
shock of earthquakes an(d volcanoes. But in-
temperance has gone ,p oh the breadth of the earth
.a pestilence in darkness, a destruction at noon day.
What community, from nations.pf the highest in-
tellectual and moral culture down to savage
tribes, has been exempt from its assault ? Wheth-
er true or false the opinion that it generally
prevails most among people least cultivated
and in the higher latitudes, the fact of its exist-
ence in every variety of temperature and under
every form of society is past question. We find
it not only irr every section of the earth, but in
persons of all ages and of either sex. Under
its withering influence youth loses its vivacity,
manhood its strength, and age its sis'dom. Ifin
females it is less frequent, as it is more offen-
sive, yet even here it aspires to something
!more than a conquest over the shameless class.
:Sometimes it succeeds in fixing an indelible
stain on characters before unexceptionable. It
destroys the loveliness of'the wife and mother ;
it hiaquets-on beauty and even on titled blood.
.'Nor from any condition in life is the intruder
debarred. Could it be confined to the camp or
.the brothel, could it even, be kept from the fair-
est portions of the earth, its havoc would be less
,deplorable. But no class of society is too high
'to escape its attack. The rich and the pool,
the learned and the ignorant, men of station no
less than the lowest menial, are numbered a-
mong its victims. It meets you in the street,
clad in rags, supporting its, measured step with
a crutch, and clamorous for charity. It is found
in the poor-house, living on the hard earnings
of others. In the prison you may see its mo-'
ping melanch9ly,"-in the grated retreat for
the insane, its frenzied eye and frantic gesture.
In many a chamber of distress it gives, to sick-
-ness its keenest pang and to death its 'severest
sting. On the military parade you find it reel-
ing, and cursing irnl qi s.irr.lling ; in the village

of injury which the ldi:nms sustain by this per-

matter of opinion.
It is, alas! too true, we cannot console,
ourselves with the reflection that ihe physical
declension of' our Indians has been counterba-
lanced by an amelioration of their moral corodi-
tion,. But we cannot refrain from adding the
following remarks, just received from the
Chickasaw country, touching the morality of
the Chickasawvs, who are, in comparison with
the Cherokees, for example, only in the twi-
light of improk'ement. The writer of the lel-
ter from which the oll6wing extract is minade
(and which hears date' 10th.' September last) is
entitled to every credits a philanthropist, a
scholar, and a divine :
According to information received from
white mep, who have long resided among hir-rm,
and from the best informed of the natives thl, r,-
selves, their moral.condition is greatly imp;',. ,..I
within the last twenty years. Very many of
their old and savage customs are entirely laid
aside. Twenty years ago, the favorite riding-
horse .ofa deceased person was put to death,
and burned, lest he should die a natural death-,
be consumed by the vulture, and thus be .ren-
dered useless to his master, in the strange land
to which he was gone. The gun, the toma-
hawk, the pipe-and, in short, almost every
thing belonging to them, were put in the same
hole with them, under the impression that the
departed spirit needed these things to procurt
a subsistence in its separate state. Such thing-
are not heard of in the present day. A vern
different idea, though by no means expanded.
respecting futurity, now obtains among then.
'The soul, in its. separate state, is believed ts
be happy, or miserable, according to their ideas
of enjoyment and suffrnring ; and does not need;
the means necessary to support animal life, an
it cannot die. A distinction is made between
the bad mnd the'good, and sLpatale 1.1 cL's as-

Key West, lat. 24 21,-lon. 81 50, like most of
the Keys from Cape Florida to Tortudos, was of
little note until that piratical system, which has
been such a source of human misery, and so de-
grading to the nation whose subjects have wan-
tonly sported with lives and property-which in-
duced our government to seek a suitable place
of shelter for our squadron---for this purpose
none possessed the advantages of Key West.
This, however, soon became proverbially un-
liealthy, from causes difficult to explain, when
we take into view an insulated Island of limited
-xtent, with an uninterrupted sea breeze---a soil
with moderate cultivation, producing all the
tropical productions, and capable of sustaining
a fair population. I see nothing to prevent, un-
der proper management, its being an impor-
,ar.t station, nor is it destitute of commercial
advantages. To produce those results the title
must be conferred either to the National Gov-
ernment or to those individuals who are now
contending for the right of soil. When the title
is confirmed let there be a garrison kept up,
not made up of those already-exhausted in boat
service, but from that portion of the naval and

MONTROUS DIVE. An occurrence of a frightfu
nature happened a few days ago at Valley Falls
a short distance from this .village, which has
just been related to us by a gentleman from thai
place. While Mr. Otis N. Pierce was at work
on the roof of a four story cotton factory, he
accidentally lost his balance and, the shingle.
being wet from a recent rain he was unable tc
stop himself from going off. When he came tc
the edge he made a desperate effort to cling tc
the roof, and for a moment was suspended by
the arms over the frightful precipice below. He
was instantly compelled to give way, and turn-
ng in his fall he struck with -his hands and
breast the edge of a bank which caved -under
him and he went into the river with his head
downwards. His face struck the bottom, but
hie came up in a moment, and by the assistance
of several near him, he was taken out without
other injury than the fracture of the bones of
his wrists, and a small bruise on the forehead.
It is stated that there were but about four feet
n either direction from the place i '-e Mr.
P. fell, that he could have escaped being dash-
ed in pieces had he been so unfortunate as to
have struck on any other spot than that which
received him. Pawtucket Chronicle.

A HERMIT it is stated in the Thomaston
(Maine) Register, that there has resided for a
number of years past in the back part of the
town of Montville, a hermit of the name of Bar-
rett. He has dwelt in a cave, the work of his
own hands, dug in the bank of a small river, and
carefully secured at the entrance- against the
intrusion of wild beasts, by a large log,-suffi-
ciently hollow to admit of his entering. He
rejects every kind of luxury which may be offer-
ed him, the fruits of the earth that grow sponta.
neously in the woods around him being his only
food ; water from the 'limpid stream his only
drink. Since his retirement from the world he
ihas copied the bible twice, oace on paper and
once on the bark of the birch tree. About a
year since he moved from his cave in Y3ontville
ihrther into the woods, the country having be
come so much settled around him that he was
frequently annoyed by visitors. He was.the son
ofa respectable farmer in Massachusetts, who
obliged him to marry a woman he disliked, hav-
ng previously formed an attachment to another.
He lived with his wife but a short time, when'
t is said, rather than endure the society of her
ie could not love, he determined to forsake the
vorld and its pleasures, and secretly left his nd-
ive town for Maine, and teok up his abode in
he wilderness.--N. Y.'Statesman.
BoN MOT. At a late trial before the Superior
Court in this county, some of the witnesses, in
ourse of examination, had occasion to say that a
certain man was a sog or stupor. The attornies
ot understanding the phrase, were very inquis-
iive to know what stupor meant. A.t length an
honest farmer was called on the stand, and asked
he usual question of the situation of the patient.
'he answer was that he lay in a kind of stu-
or." Stupor," says the sagacious lawyer,
what does that mean ?" He immediately' took
paper out of his pocket, and read Johnson's
elinition. What did you bring 'that for ?"
sks the knight of the green bag. The farmer
promptly answered, that he found the Bar did
ot know the meaning of the word, and he
houghtit proper to save time and explain it to.

About 9 o'clock last evening, a young' man na-
ied Munsell, aged 17, a clerk in the employ of P;
J. S. Crary, being in the store alone, heard a
nud knock at the door; the store was closed, and
e thought it was a fellow clerk who lodged with him
iere. Upon opening the door, three men presented
themselves, one of whom seized him and pressed in.
he young mana succeeded in shutting the door. and
olting it, in time to exclude the others, at the same
me fighting with the one. who entered, whom he
srew upon the floor, and cried for assistance. The
sbber drew a pistol, and tried to blow out the young
an's brains, but it missed fire; he then drew a
ng knife, and obliged Munsell to let him go,. 11n-
olting the door himself, and walked off, his conipan-
ns having quitted the place after attempting to
press in the door. Munsell states that these three
en had been in the store that evening obout 7 o'
ock, and had excited his suspicion by loitering
lere. He says the robber was 'a tall man, about
5 years of age. It is almost incredible that he
would thus have been able to resist the villian, and
cape any serious wound. His coat was torn to
eces in the scuffle. Had all three robbers enter-
I, their first act would no doubt have been to si-
nce him ; and be probably owes his life to his spiri-
d conduct.-N. Y. paper, Jan. 21.

- On the passage of the bill to be engrossed,
s to prevent the going at large of neat cattle,
t horses or sheep, on certain beaches in the coun-
. ty of Barnstable, Mr. Grennell requested of the
- Committee which reported it to give some ex-
* planation of the necessity of its provisions.
, Mr. Burnell, of Nantucket, said, -he would
e comply with the request of the gentleman from.
n Franklin with pleasure. He then explained the
- nature of the beach grass which is peculiar to
. the sand hills of Cape Cod. .This grass is ca;l-
e culated to prevent those sands from moving
e like the waves of the sea. In consequence of
. cattle having been allowed to feed on the
. beaches much of the grass has bee', uprooted;m
d and the effect has been that the moving sindls
haye already approached so near to, the harbor
of Proyincetown as to threaten its destruction,
and which can only be prevented by the inhibj-
tion proposed by the bill.
Mr. G.,expressed his satisfaction' at the ex-
, plan.tion ; and the bill passed to be engrossed'

i A resolve of the House, on the subject of the
battle of Bunker-Hill Survivors, was referred
t -to Messrs. Keyes, Crawford, and White.
f On motion of Messrs. Savage and Bur-
nell, the Judiciary Committee was instructed
to report on the expediency of repealing or
amending the law.passed in June, 1825, estab-
lishing the terms of the Supreme Judicial Court.
Mr. Baylies, from the Judicial Committee,
reported a resolve, to authorize the administra-
tors to the estate of E. R. Fitch, deceased, to
convey certain real estate to W. Fitch, pursu-
ant to an agreement made between them, in the
a life time of the former.
Mr. Grennell doubted the propriety of pas-
sing the resolve. He understood that the agree.
ment was not evidenced by writing; and that
the deceased had left minor heirs to whom the
estate in question had, of course, descended.
I It was not, therefore, as he thought, in the pow-
-er of the Leg;slature to aulhriz.-. the adminis-
trators to convey the estate with a good title,
nor would the assent of the Guardians, if there
were any, render the conveyance effectual;
He wished for an explanation of the views of
the Committee on the subject.
Mr. B aylies said, he was glad that the gentle-
. man has asked for an explanation; as he him-.
self had doubts as to the correctness of the
course recommended in 'the report, inasmuch as
the agreement was by parole, and the resolve
had been reported, that the direction of the
Board might be distinctly taken, as well for the
particular case now before them, as to indicate
the course to be pursued in reference tb future
applications. [Mr. B. then made a full state-
ment of the facts, which showed perfect fairness
in the original parties.] He then moved, that
the report be laid on the table. Adopted,
The "bill for the relief of poor debtors arrest,

the hill gave, at some length, an exposition of
the motives of the Committee in offering it, aind
of the attention they had gi ren to the subject.
He alluded to the long exsilng p.-licy which ap-
peared to demand lhat iniprisoinent should be'
one of the means used in th. collection of dells,
and.of the complaints made against it. Gave a
history of the various attempts which have
been made to modify the laws on the subject,
and ofthe ill success which had attendedd them,
and particularly the difficulties epc rienced in
attempts to discriminate' between_ honest and
fraudulent debtors, and other means of relief.
The Committee, he said, were unanimously of
opinion that debtors ought to be compelled to
pay their debts, where there was any property
which could be made available by the most se-
vere scrutiny. He then made a perspicuous
detail .of the several sections. The principal
feature of the bill, he said was to authorize poor
debtors to take the usual oaths required of
them, by giving bail to appear before the pro.
per tribunal to take them, without previous con-
finement in jail. Many of the provisions of the
bill, he remarked, were transcripts of existing
laws. He had, he said, no intention, at present,
to go into the general merits of the subject,
but stated some facts which had occurred in the
District ia which he resided, which he thought
would justify the provisions efthe bill; and ret
marked, in conclusion, that the discussion of the
bill would afford an opportunity to those who
were advocates of the system of imprisonment,
to come out in its defence. i "
Mr. Mills then proposed two additional sec-
tions, one to repeal all the law heretofore made
on the subject, and the other to allow creditors
to select the Justices before whom the debtors
are to take the oaths. These amendments
were adopted.
Mr. Gray then moved, to test the opinion of
the Senate on the general merits of the ques-
tion, that the first section of the bill 6be stricken ovt,
remarking, at the same time that he was in fa-

opinions wiich to*o often proceed from a partial ob-
'er, atio-n of Ihe great'causes of the prosperity or al-
v,rs.ity of nations anli of the smaller communities' con:-
posin-r tflIni, it cannot'havre escaped notice, that the
population of this town and its vicinity is now become
so large that it cannot always find constant and ad-
vantaoeous employment, in the different branches
of businesss which hlae :at' former periods given it full
occupation. Thie consequencee has been, that oour
,I'l erprising young men wiithin a few years past lhaveo
in many instances thought it for their advantage (how
justly, time alone will determine) to leave the tran-
quil seats of their fathers and resort to those parts of
our extensive country, which seemed to afford a more
ample and promising field to the talents and energy
(if youth.
By mears'. however, of. mod'erne improvements in
the ,p1.i.1 ,ie te of the physical andl intellectual pew-
ers of man, it i 'now found practicable to concentrate
lthe whole force of a condensed population npon Mant-
factures and the various mie'ehanicn arts immediately
connected with them, and. thus, within a very line-
ited territney. .to affordI room fgr a much ge-eater pro-
portion than heretofore 0of the talent acnd enterprise
of a nation. Manufactures therefore naturally be-
come one of the great resdources of a nation as its pop-
alation advances ; and when it is considered that the
popu'lalion of this part of e(eor country is now fast
approaching to the deitsi y of the geieral popular ion
of Great I|italin, ihe period sems to have arrived
when it is pro,.er for us also to direct our attention
in part to t!ie subject of Manuii'actre's. Experiments

. some privileges now asked for, (asld wtcich',-f gran'it-
f ed would be fsotimi ill,, deirmn.'ni I to tIre intere-ts

- petitioners. I-Ie allidcled to the Flats in Cplling'ss
i Cove, which, he said, if tlmco,'ielh.e ,all], ;:r.ni ]e
to the petitioners by i vote of the town, cold not
,be of great importance in the proposed nncleritekihg,
and might be wanted by the town for the use of the
AWoilk-House Farm. The 'wharf, also, whichli the
Town had erected for tle use of tire -Work-House,
would by the grant now asked for be cut off, and thee
Town left to convey its wood, &e. for the Work-
House a great distance, and that by an addi.
tional expense of making, a road for the purpose.
With these views, Mr. Evelethi moved that the
whole subject of thie motion submitted by.Mr. Pick-
ering be referred to a comniiitte, to 'confer with the
r etitioners ond the subject of the proposed granted
and report at an adjournment of the meeting.
Hon. JoSEPHs STORY objected to the reference.
He thought such a course would be very improper.
If the subject were referred, how, lie inquired, could
the committee act what measures could they adopt
in re ference to the nature and extent of grants, be-
fore they new that the Town wonld mae those
grants it all. 'lie conceived the object o the-gen-
tleman would be fully answered if the resolutions
were first submitted and'the sense of tlie Townv taken.
If tlhe Town consented, by voting in favor of the
resolution, to grant the privileges prayed for by the
petitioners, it would then be a suitable time, as' lhe
understand it was the intention of the mover of the
resolution, to refer the subject to a committee; byv
whom such arrangements could be made as wionld
answer the interests of hoth parties. He believed

the gentlemen with whoi the present project origi-
nated, had been influenced by the most liberal an( t
generous motives: hby the hope of increasing the
wealth and population of their town, u hi.h., iii
point of business, i't was nottorin is, lie said, if he
might be allowed the expression, lhad for the last
twenty years Jbeen in a state of progressive decrease.
No company had been fimned for the purposes
contemplated in the present plan ; none would bei
'formed, he hoped, without giving to every individual
an opportunity of participating : he viewed this pro-
ject as one for the interest and benefit of the Town,
and every individual in it; an attempt to renovate
its ancient character f(or industry and enterprise;
lhe would not have lifted his voice for one momentC
in favor of the resolution if lie thought it was for
the .advancement of a privileged few.
Judge Story then gave a very elaborate and e!o-
qnient detail of his views of the. whole subject tender
consideration. HIe thought it was one of the mnosit
interesting character, and of vital .importance to ihe t
citizens. HIe spoke of the pi e'sent condition of Sa-
lem, and of its condition for the last twenty years.
During this time, other towns, with less advantages, |
and nioe disadvantages, had risen to we-alth, andl
power, and .respectability, while Salem had coin-
paratively" stood -still. He alluded particularly to 4

COUNTERFEITER CAUGHT. Acele ma,. cnllinri
hinselfJohn Peabody, was arrested at New-Hia-
ven oni Thursday of last week, as a counterfeiter.
He stopped at a tavern with his wife, rand an infant
child ; and 'wac i suspected in consequence of an-
svering the description of a person who had passed
i counterfeit bill a day or two befifre in Ha ftiord.
He was watched, and detected finally in offering
counterfeit bills, and arrested.. He at first denied
the charge, and exposed his baggage'to be searched.
uouthing was found in his trunk, or about him ; he
informed the persons employed in searching hlin
that his wife had a trunk which they had better
search also. TheytoSok him at his word, and in
his i ife's trunk found a small mahogany box; which
they proceeded to examine, when lie requested them
to desist,saying it was his wife's private trunk. The
examiners had the curiosity to thiiump on the bottom
and top, and finding them to be hollow from thee
sound, proceeded to break it open; when Peaboldy
exclaimied', you have got me, gentlemen ; there is
$1700 in there." The solid wood of the cover was
'cooped out, the bills deposited, and concealed by a
thin wooden cover. The bottom was fixed in the
same Panner. Peabodly appeared very penitent
very sulddenly--said lie was glad to be detected4l-had

and all that sort of blarney. His wife, only IT

yeats of age, was in great distrd.i, which was much

Newgate with her husband. She said, however, she
deserved it all, for she had left her parents.. and
married Peabody against their consent. $1P81,
counterfeit, and $100, good money, was found a-
bout him,

'at, in Hanover, N. H. was broken into on the night
of the 17th inst. and plundered of t large sin of
money, Judge F. was absent, and the theft was not
discoveredd till next day. A boy in the house thto't
hli heard a noise in the night, and found the back
doot open in Ithe monniitg., which he was sure he
fastened at night. Some of the neighbors saw a
light in ihe parlor ditriing the night.,, Front these
^birctimnstances Mrs. F, examined, und foiind that it
large stuin of imotley hald been taken front a. drawer in
a seefetary, which was locked, and there was tno
appearance of its having heen disturbed. The thief
,has been taken and tlhe pri ncip-ld part of thlie money

MEssRS. ErDiTons-As you gave in your last
,Gazette no accourt-of the horrid sufferings oft' a
Hindoo victim, I request you to insert i-i your
next the following, from the Philad. Evening
Post:-" '
"1'HsE SUTiTrE or AMSi'RICA. Ira beholding the cus-
toms of foreign nations, they sometimes surprise us by
their strong-contrast with those ol' our own country, and
occasionally shock us by their entire opposition to the
spirit of Christianity. But if we more closely analyse the
scenes daily exhibited before our eyes, whose fatiiliarity
may be said almost to blind us, this contrast vanishes.
"Take for instance, the deplorable habit of intoxication
which has so widely spread over our favored land, and say,
whether there can be any evil of such incalculable maguni-
tude ? The peace of families becomes destroyed by this
demon of desolation. 'Talent and reputation, and power,
are sacrificed at.his shrine.. Even the magic-wand of
wealth is nerveless in the hands of his votary, ,or lies at
his shivered feet. His children proclaim his dogradation-'
-his habitation passes into the possession of another-disease
and disgust drivo away his friends-and alas! to sum up
this catalogue of human misery, many a charming woman,
within the walks of polished cities, is doomed like the de-
-luded Hindoo, to suffer tortures on the funeral pyre of her
'husband, who is dead to her-to religion and to happiness."
It should be remembered that no law obliges
the Hindoo to perform this dreadful rite
of slfinmmolation, but it is altogether a, voliin.
-tary sacrifice on their partl, m-ide in full
onidencethat tha (hey will thus find favor and ac-
ceptance with God. \Vith us on the tcotr.ry
it is believed that thej victim here described has
no means'affortded her ofavoiding the long pro-
tracted misery to which she is doomed, .and the
additional and accurnulatedI suffering of seeing
'vice-and degratdation entailed on herl helpless
offspring must give poignancy to the evil, vlwhiclh
th-ad she alone been called to endure would have
.been comparatively trivia!.
'The ingenious and impressive manner in
which the sutttee of Intlia is contrasted willth one
of the tmiost odious antd destruiclive vices to
which humanity is subjected, is well calculated
ho impress on the rnins the full conviction ofthe
obligation we are under to use oiur most strenus
'ous'and unjled exertiores to overcome the vices
so common among ourselves, before we aftempt
to reform ihe 'Hindoos, who assuredly u ill net-.
ther believe us wiser or better than themsel'vess,

SHE subscribers, (being a majority in interest of the)
proprietors of a certain tract of meadows lying in the
towns of Wenham, Hamilton, and Ipswich, on a stream
called Miles' river, and its branches running from Wen-
ham Pond through said meadows, respectfully represent,
That in the year 1796, Commissioners of sewers were
appointed to assess a tax on the proprietors of said mead-
ows for removing obstructions from said Mileg' river, and
that a tax-has been regularly assessed on said proprietors,
annually, for the purpose aforesaid, 'until tboout the year
1812, since which time 'by reason of the decease and re-
signation of all the said Commissioners of sewersathe said
stream has been neglected, and has become much ob-
structed by weeds, grass, bushes, &c. to the great injury
of said meadows.
We therefore request that some suitable persons may be
appointed as Commissioners -of sewers on the aforesaid
river according to the statute in such case provided.

S I-pHECELEIBRITYofDr. IIoITl.;at in the':ure of Ye--
nereal complaints, has ever been acknowledged by
allphysicians in Europe and America ; and the success aith
which he practiced, nut only realized him wealth, but es-
teem. His celebrated Pills are an effectual remedy in all
the various stages of the Disease, (even when mercury has
failed) and PR.IVACY must ever be a grand desidetstumn
to those 'who are so unfortunate as to. contract a Venereal
taint; and a natural anxiety arises to rid themselves of so
dangerous a complaint as early as possible ; yet aslifulness
hais often been the destruction of many, who otherwise
eight havebeen at thii present day in health, and useful
members of society.
To prevent similar occurrences, the proprietor sulhmils
an easy and simple method of cure, viz: I-iUNTER'S
CELEBRATED PILLS-Price one dollar; or six boxes
Iforfive dollars round which will be found a practical trea-
tise on the complaint, describing fully the symiltens and
methods of cure. These pills, together with Dr. HU NBTER'S
Injection Powder, are an effectual preventive and remedy, in
all the various stages of the disease, however obstinate; atnd
recent infections are removed thereby frequently in threc
or four days, without confinement or restraint of diet, at
the trifling expense ofawfewdollars. In proofof which, a-
mong numerous cases of cure, the following are submitl d:

There is perhaps no, medical observation better establish
el, none more generally confirmed by the-experience ol the
best physicians of all ages and countries, and not:e of n o.e
importance to the human family than the act that many in
the most difficult and incurable'consumptiouns originate ef
neglected colds. In a climate so variable as ours-, woheio
the changes of the weather are frequently sudden and un-
expected, it requires more care and attention to guamd
against this dangerous enemy of life, than post peIple
imagine, are 'able and willing tobestow. The bills of
mm,,.l.ity exhibit the melancholy fact that the prop(rt'ion
of deaths by this disease may be considered as about
five to one. Inasmuch then as this fatal disease bids defi-
ance to the skill of the most learned'pihysiciansi. it is a gia'
tification to ihe proprietor that he is enabhld to offer to
those afflicted with it a goodly prospect of relief, in that
highly valuable rememlythe Vegetable Indian Specific. The
Indians are happy in their knowledge of meoicati piitsin.;
governed wholly by experience, they art certain as to their
effect, and it is said by an aut-hor of great character, that
a true consumption is a disease never known among them.
For the information of those afflicted with complaints of

the numerous testimonials in his possession) thie follawirg

with night sweats andi fevers, and was much emaciatedl with
loss of appetite, rest, 4-c. I applied to everhl eminent phy-
sicians, and passed through a course of medicine, but could
obtain no relief, and found myself fast verging on to a
confirmed consumption. Having at length heard tf the
many astonishing cures effected by the Vegetable Indian,

immediate relief, and my rest restored. I-continiu-d its

mend the use of the Vegetable Indian Specific to all who
suffer under a similar complaint, and as a safe, pleasant and

The celebrated Dr. Cullen has taught us that our first at.-

the disease and preventing its proceeding to an intcurable-
state; and in persons of a consumptive habit, especially
those born of consumptive'parents, the slightest symptoms.
