PHILAD E LPHIA:
FRIDAY MORNING, JAN. 19, 1827.


A numerous meeting of citizens was he
yesterday in the District Court Room,Jud
HEMPHILL in the Chair, & J. N. Barker
Geo. M. Dallas, Esqrs. Secretaries. Theo
-ject of the meeting, was to invite the L
gislature of the State, should they resol
to remove the Seat of Government fro
Harrisburg, to accept of the use of the Sta
House in this City, as the State Capitol.
Resolutions to that effect offered by J
seph Ingersoll, Esq.-were unanimous
adopted.
It was likewise resolved, That the L
brary Company, the Atheneum; and a
other similar public Institutions, be request
ed to tender to the use of the members
the Legislature their Halls and Libraries
The greatest unanimity prevailed in th
Meeting, not only in reference to the desire
of having Philadelphia the political cap
tal of Pennsylvania-but also as to the eu
ioent propriety of such a measure.

POST MASTER GENERAL.
The public are not unapprized of the ma
ny obligations under which the country
rests, to Mr. M'Lean, the Post Master Gen
eral, for the able and efficient manner, i
which he has discharged the highly import
tant duties, devolving upon him, by his ac
cepting his present office-but we presume
there are few or none who are capable ofap
preciating the extent of his successful la
bours, of understanding all the advantage
derived to the country, by -his devotion t
the public good, in the high department
which he occupies.-We had before us,
few days since, an estimate of the increase
of distance in the daily carriage of th
mail, since Mr. McLean undertook its di
rection-it was really astonishing; but no
so much as the alteration effected in th'
revenue from postage. From being a loss o
many thousand dollars to the public, ith
Post Office Department is now the source
of a very large increase to the public.Trea
sury.
It will therefore we doubt not be learned
with much satisfa tion that the Senate has
resolved to increase tihe salary of this e
cellent officer to six thousand dollars. A
sum by no means superior to his great ser
vices and sacrifices.

CENTRE OR PENN SQUARE.
We are requested to call public attention
to an elegant plan, for the improvement o
Centre Square, designed by Win. Rush-
a gentleman to whose taste and judgement
our City is already largely indebted., The
Plan has been placed in the Merchants
Coffee House, for the inspection of the Citi.
zens; it is accompanied by a Memdrial tc
the City Councils, which it is desirable
persons approving the plan should sign.

We referred a few days since, to an error
into which the Editor of the Boston States-
man had fallen, in charging upon Doctor
McHenry, of this city, conduct, in refer-
ence to correspondents of the American
Magazine, unworthy the character of a gen-
tleman. In referring to the mistake of our
Boston correspondent; we expressed our
conviction that he had been mislead by false
representations, and would only need a
hint of his mistake, to acknowledge his er-
ror-We were right;the Editor of the States-
man makes the amended, honorable no less to
the injured party than to himself-and re-
quests editors who may have copied his first
remarks to give equal publicity'to his cor-
rection of them.

SIrt-The approbation which the committee in
which you preside, has been pleased to express, of
the measure which I had the honour to propose for
the relief of the suffering Gieeks, confirms me in
the opinion I entertained, that it is one consistent
with our neutral duties as a nation, not contrary to
those which ila representatives owe to the consti-
tulion under which they act, and required by the
laws of humanity binding all nations as well as in-
dividuals. Unfortunately a large majority of the
House of Representotives seem to have doubts on
one or more of these points; for I have hitherto
been unable to procure a consideration of the sub-
ject, since its discussion was precluded by the
vote to lay the motion on the table.
1 pray you, sir, to express io the Committee my
regret at this unlocked for result in the national
counsels; my hope that it will add new zeal to the
exertion cf individual charity; and my thanks for
the honor of their favorable notice.

- REPORT OF MANAGERS OF THI
LEHIGH COMPANY.
The Managers in surrendering, the pow
er delegated to them, respectfully present
to the Stockholders, as the last act of their
official duty a short statement of their ope
nations during the past year.
The state of the Company's Funds no
Ild admitting the expenditures of much Capita
in permanent improvements, their view
ge were chiefly confined to such objects, as
. were likely to result in lessening the ex
)b- pense of their Current Business and there
by increasing its profits.
,e- The construction of a Rail Road was a
ve measure which early claimed the anxious
mm consideration of the Board; for although
te they did not flatter themselves that it could
be completed so as to produce its effect du
ring the current year, fyet so strong was
o- their conviction of its ultimate saving and
ly advantage, that a Meeting of the Stockhol
ders was called partly from the hope that
Funds would be promptly provided for its
i- construction. Causes which are as well
il known to the Stockholders as to the Merm-
st- bers of the Board,disappointed theirexpec-
tations and confined them to such prepar-
of atory steps as were within their means. In
Sthe full confidence however of the immense
ie benefits which would follow and be imme-
re diately manifest upon its completion, the
Board have ventured to assume some res
ponsibilities the value of which will hard
a. ly be duly appreciated until their conse-
quences are enjoyed. To guard against
the possibility of any important mistake in
this matter, the Board took the precaution
to invite a professional gentleman who had
recently visited Europe for the express
y purpose of acquiring information, (mainly
n on the subject of Canals and Railt Rads.)
n to advise with lte Actintt M mainger as tothe
location of the Road and tie plan aofits ex
r section. His report of this subject is here
c- with submitted, and( the exhibit of the Act.
e, ing Manager will show the progress of this
important work. The completion of the
Dam and Lock two miles below Bethlehemn
a- greatly facilitated the business of the Comr-
es pany during the'prevalence of dry weather
o enabling the boatman to reach the mouth of
it the Lehigh without detention in the lowest
stage of theater ;but such was the difficulty
a of descending theDolaware that for near six
e weeks of tie dryest season the boating'was
e entirely suspended. During this period
the boatmen and a number of other hands
were employed in improving the channels
t of this River, and although mitte wa- (lone,
e much remains to be done before those chan-
f nels will be safe and placticable' at all sta-
e ges of water.',
The freqrient delays and irregtulaiities
Satt;nd,int ton t the passage through tide, in
induced the- Managers rI- provide a Steam-
Boat to assist i,n ibis operation; the effect
of this arrangement has been to greatly les-
sen, but not entirely to remove the evil.--
s The shape and temporary construction of
the boats, though well adapted to descend.
Sing a shallow current, renders them un-
safe in tide water, without care to avoid
exposure in rough weather and constant at-
tention to keeping them free; and moreov-
er their great breadth presents such resis-
tance to a passage through the water, that
more power is required to tow them than
f would be necessary for Boats of three times
their burthen if'constructed in a manner
- adapted to an ascending Navigation, the
advantages and necessity of which has been
so sensibly felt that the Managers have had
complete surveys and accurate charts made,
both of thie Lehigh and of the Delaware,
from which it appears evident that a very
Moderate expenditure of capital (compared
with the object) would make a good steam
boat navigation from Mauch Chunk to
Tide. Five ascending locks have been fin-
ished during the season, and application
has been made to the Governor to have
them inspected. The Company have brought
to market this season, over 30,000 tons of
coal, being a bout 12,000 tons more, than
the shipment of last year; but notwithstand
ing this large increase, in addition to what
has arrived from other quarters, such is the
extension of demand, that no fears are en-
tertained of an excess of supply. Eight
thousand tons of Coal were shipped to N.
York, which is now on sale under the di
section of the Board, and from the return
of sales we have no reason to doubt but that
the whole will be sold during the winter,
at a price that will net the Company a fair
profit. The growing importance of this
market renders every improvement which
will facilitate tie supplying it with Coal
from the Lehigh, an object of great inter-
est to this Company. In this point of view
the present flattering prospects of the Mor
ris Canal Company is a subject of great fe-
licitation. Their difficulties have been sur-
mounted by new subscriptions to their
Stock of sufficient amount tosecuire its com-t
pletion.
And although more advantageous chan.-
nels may hereafter be opened, yet from the
effect likely to be produced by the use of
locks upon ain inclined plane' it is believed
the facility of the transit even by this
route, will fully juistify, nay, loudly calls
for the simultaneous completion of tie as-
cending N.ivigation 'of thie Lehigh; tldI
more especially whrmn it is recollected that
the Company will thereby derive thIe ad-
vantage of receiving their supplies both for
home consumption and prnfitabla sales lby
means of an improved navigantitm, instead
of thie present expensive l.md carriage. Then
Managers would regret tihe 'policy which
would drive themn to New York to make
their purchases, but unless thei DIelawi're
shall also be unproved, tihe Company would
be left with no other alternative.
While on this subject it imaiy bem proper to
state, that the iMorris C :ial passes through
a district, where Iron Ore exists in greater
abundxI;,ce than in almost any thiler part of
our country anid will furnishi a market for
Coal of great inpl rt-i nue to this C company.

CONGRESS.*
WASHING.roN, Jan. 17.
In the Senate, yesterday, a bill was re-
ported providing for the examination of
sites in the Western country, with a view
to the establishment of a National Armory.
A bill was reported from the Committee on
Finance, for appropriating one million of
dollars, hitherto authorized to be kept in
the Treasury, to the purposes of the sink-
ing Fund. The bill providing for taking
evidence in the Courts of the United Slates
in certain cases, which was amended in the
House of Representatives, was taken up,
and the amendtueits were agreed to. The
bill providing for the gradual increase of
the Navy, by appropriating thereto five
hundred thousand dollars yearly, for six
years, was read a second time, and made
the order of the day for Friday next.
A copy of the convention "lately nego-
ciated between tie Government of the U-
nitcdl'-States and Great Britain, on the sub-
ject of property taken away during the late
war, was yesterday laid before the House
of Representatives. A copy of it will be
found in our report of the proceedings.-
The House again resumed the considera-
tion of the Bill making provision for the
surviving officers of the army of the Revo-
lution. Mr. WHoTLESEY moved to recon-
sider the vote of thle preceding day by
which Mr. WICKILIFFE'S amendment was
adopted, but the motion was negatived by
a vote of 96 to 78. Mr. WooDs, of Ohio,
then moved to lay the bill on the table, but
this motion was also rejected, as was a mo
tion made by Mr. WILLIAtIas, to postpone
the bill to tile 3d of March. The bill was
finally referred back, on motion of Mr.
BunyEs, to the Committee of tihe whole, -
made the order of day for to-day. The ob-
ject is to increase the appropriation.-Jour.

We were happy to see Mr. TnrkIranLr, of -
Kentncky, who has .been detained from
his public duties by indisposition, i I his
seat yesterday.-Ib.

Thile Convention lately concluded be-
twern the United States' Erngland, which
provides for indemnifying the losses sus-
tained by American citizens, in compliance
with the true intent and meaning of the
first article of the Treaty of Ghent, was
yesterday communicated to both Houseg of
Congress by the President. By a report
from the Secretary of State, which accom-
panies it, we learn th it $602,480, being
one half the amount the British Govern
miet has agreed to pay, his been received,
and is at thie disposition of Congress.-Ib.


MANUFACTURES.

From thIe Massachusetts Spy.
In regard to WXVoollens, let facts here tell
the story. It is agreed by thie oldest merch
ants in Boston, that Broadcloths and Wool-
len goods generally, such as are inanutac-
tured here, are much lower in price than
ever was known, even when the duties
were but 5 per cent. (if I recollect right);
and no other reason can be given, than the
increaseof American Manufactures. The
consumer can buy a better cloth of our own d
manufacture for $2 per yard, than hIe could 1
of imported, before we .had Mtanufactures t
tor ',4; and for this fact, I appeal to all can- b
lid judges for its correcttess. The if this t
s true, instead of the consumer having to a
pay double, by increasing duties to 50 per
tent. it appears that, by r'elying- ot Ameri- v
;an skill and industry, ie obtains the same a
aliue of goods fur one half their former irin- e
ported prices. \
By this moude of reasoningit is presumed, n
n fact, that foreigieirs can always be able
o furnish goods of like quantity 331 3 per a
cent. cheaper than Americans, otherwise s
here woultl he no risk of the consumers I1
having to pay that amount more. Who o

'r domestic amsir.

extract ofa letter from La Guayra, Dec. 13, 1826.
"As you no doubt in common with every
kmericia, have deeply deplored the situation cf


industry, does not tax the citizens of this:
country for any particular branch protect-
ed, as competition is left free to Americans,
& none who choose to engage can beexclu-
ded. If Government should name a few in-
dividuals, who should have exclusive right
to manufacture Woollen Goods, and des
prive the rest of the community. then there
would be a monopoly. Is it possible that
an American, at this day, should have such
a contemptible opinion of the powers and'
skill of its citizens,as to suppose them only
fit for the coarser labour, comparatively'
like tle Lerfs of Sweden, working for Sd.
per day, while the arts and .products of
scientific power must be imported 3000
miles, for our convenience and necessity.
Awtay with such dinateolizing stuff. No
man cicn descend so lowe ; he must have more
exalted opinions of the talents and enter-
prize of our countrymen.
Let ns look, Pand see if Americans are so
far behind the foreigners in inventions, to
abridge manual labor in nt.aiufaicturing.
Before we manufactured, satinets were in-
ported from England, and sold for $2 50
per yard. Americans by competition and
inventing the Water loom, have reduced
them of ,.s good a quo.iity, to 75 cents per
vard. How does this 33 1 3 per cent. tax+
the consumer? The article of Fiann.ls be-
fore manufactured here, averaged $16 per
piece, when imported; but competition in
Amnerica has reduced them, of like quality,
to $10 Does this tax the consumer? Cas-
simeres that consumers had to pay $3 when
imported, can now be bought of American
manufacture, for $1 25, of as good quality.
Is this taxing the consuin:r? Cut Nails
that were worth 10 to 12 coPre'm per lb be-
fore prohibitory duties were, laid on for-
eign, say 5 cents per 11). specific, can now
be bought of American manufacture, of bet-
ter quality, for 6s cents; and too according
to some persons ideas, ought to bring more
.than before,by 5 cents per lb. which would
make from 15 to 16 cents per lb. How ar-
guments vanish as they are approached. If
Broadcloths that were worth, before 33 1-3
per cent. duties were laid, $4 per yard, they
ought, according to these views,to be worth
now $5 33 1-3, or if 50 per cent. $6; but
in fact, they can be purchased for $2. Cot-
ton Sheetings, that were worth, when im-
ported, 2 shillings per yard, under duties
on the square yard amounting to about 100
per cent. at this time, ought to bring 4 shil-
lings per yard. But, a better article by far,
manufactured by Americans, can be pur-
chased in our markets for 9 pence per yard.
Aye, and the Cotton raised at home, the.
work done at home, and where our farmers
can have the the privilege of feeding them,
without being subject to British corn laws
or prohibitions.
Every species of industry except manu-
factures in the United States, is duly pro-
tected, sofar as it respects rival articles from
abroad. The farmer is protected from for-
eign rivalship, by prohibitory duties on for.
eign articles of produce,; & nothing can be
done for his interest t toestablish manufac-
tures at home, LS- give him a market for sur-
plus produce, which is now denied him from
whence we receive these cheap manufac-
tures. There is not an article of produce
raised from the soil but what is protected
from rivalship, and it ought to be, as we do
not want to buy beef, pork, butter, cheese,
grain ly potatoes from abroad, on account of
buying them cheaper, as we want a market
to sell, not to buy produce. Just sowith man-
ufacturers-we want to sell, not to buy.
Secretary Rush says, our exports of manou-
factures for 1826,have been o er --o. .
Now these exports are from articles duly
protected by our government, and have pro
duced six millions of dollars. If they had
been imported, and as formerly cost double
our own,say cotton goods, it would arisount
to $12,000,000. which, adding the six
millions actually sold, would make a differ- 1
ence of $13,,00,000. What think you of
this, which is best to' buy our necessaries
cheaper, and not undertake to do for our-
selves, or try the inventive powers and sell
cheaper? It is my opinion we bad better ex-
port $6,000,000 worth ofourown mainufac-
tures, than to buy $12,000,000 of other
nations; and I think the consumers who
have all an equal share right and interest
either direct or indirect itn all the pursuits
of industry in America, will be sensible that
they will not be insured by a diversity of
occupations. The gold and silver mines,
and ifthe numbers are pursued, will be ta-
ken up. But if' thie writer stop at No. 2,
further inquiry into errors already commit-
ted, will be entered into.

Sm,-to BOLIVAR, Liberator, President of Colombia.
Takilcng into consideration, 1st. The state of
agitation in which the republic now finds itself,
in consequence of the transactions in Venezuela,
and that it is divided in opinion with regard to the
political administration, and alarmed at the pros-
pect of a civil war, rand an invasion from abroad
by the common enemy. 2d. That there are well
founded reasons for apprehending that the Span-
ish government- intends to renew hostilities with
tie forces which it is assembling in ithe island of
Cuba. i3d. That thlie majority o'the departments
have declared it as their opinion that the presi-
dent of the republic should be invested with
such extraordinary powers as m.y be indispensa-
bly necessary to rd-establisi y 'e raional iodtegri-
ny, and preserve Colombiu.ai ion civil and foreign
war; and 4th. That tie executive power hoas'al-

Aing on tIe one hand to correspond to thie confi-
lerce of rthe people, and on the other rto pre.

inu with the council of government, to decree,

FROM TIlE SPANISH OF JOSE MARIA HEREDIA.

My lyre! give me my lyre! my bosom feels
The glow of inspiration. Oh bow long
Have I been left in darkness since this light
Last ,isited my brow. Niagara!
Thou with thy rushing waters dost restore
The heavenly gilt that sorrow took away.
Tremendous torrent! for an instant hush
The terrors of thy voice and cast aside
Those wide involving shadows, that my eyes
May see the fearful beauty ofbthy face!
I am not all unworthy of thy sight, I
For from my very boyhood have I loved,
Shunning the meaner track onf common minds,
To look on Nature in her loftier moods.
At the fierce rushing of the hurricane,
At the near bursting of the thunderbolt
I have been touched with joy; and when the sea,
Lashed by the wind,hath rocked my bark&show-
Its yawning caves beneath me, I have loved [ed.
Its dangers and the wrath of elements.
But never yet the madness ofthe sea
Hath moved me as thy grandeur moves me now.
Thouiflowest on in quiet, "till thy waves
Grow broken 'midst tie rocks; thy current then
Shoots onward like the irresistible course
Of destiny. Ah, terribly they rage-
The hoarse and rapid whirlpnools there! My brain
SGrows wild, my senses wander, as I gaze
Upon the hurrying watem's,:and my sight
Vainly would follow, as toward the verge
Sweeps the wide torr.ent-waves innumerable
Meet there and madden-waves innumerable
Urge on and overtake thle waves before,
-.,' A,!.tdisiaasemiirathunder and in foam.
They reach-they leap the harrier-the abysa'
Swallows insatiable the sinking waves
A thousand rainbows arch them, and woods
Are deafened with the roar. The violent shock
Shatters to vapour the lescending sheets-
SA cloudy whirlwind fills the gulf, and heaves
The mighty pyramid of circling mist
To heaven. The solitary hunter near
Pauses with terror in the forest shades.
What seeks my restless eye! Why are not here
About the jaws of this abyss, the palms-
Ah-the delicious palms, that on the plains-
Of my own native Cuba, spring and spread
Their thickly foliaged summits to the sun,
And, in t he breathinigs ofthe ocean air,
Wave soft beneath the heaven's unspotted blue.

But no, Niagara,--tiy forest pines
Are fitter coronal for thee. The palm,
The elffemirinate myrtle, and frail rose may grow
In gardens, and give out their fragrance there,
Unmanning him who breathes it. Thine it is
To do a nobler office. Generous minds
Behold thee, and are moved, and learn to rise
Above earth's frivolous pleasures; they partake
Thy grandeur at the utterance of thy name.
God of all truth! In other lands I've seen
Lying philosophers, blaspheming men,
Questioners oft ty mysteries, thatdraw
Their fellows deep into-impiety,
And therefore dothn my spirit seelk thy face
In earth's majestiesolitudes. Even here
MYly heart'doth open all itself to thee.
1In this immensity of loneliness
I feel thIy hand upon mre. To my ear
The elernal thunder of the cataract brings
"Thy voice, and I am humbled as 1 hear.
Dread torrent! that with wonder and with fear
Dost overwhelm the s ul ofhim that looks
Upon thee, and dust bear it froitn itself.
Whtence last thou thy beginning! Who supplies,
Age after age, thy unexhausted springs'!
What power hath ordered, that when all rhy
Descends into the deep, the swollen waves [weight
Rise not, and roll to overwhelm the eai thi

The Lord hath opened his omnipotent hand,
,Covered thy face with clouds, and given his voice
To thy down rushing waters; lie hath girt

And I bethink me how the tide of time
Sweeps to eternity. So pass of man-
Pass, like a uoon-day drieam-the blossoming days
And he awakes to sorrow. 1, alas!
Feel that my youth is withered, and my brow
Ploughed early with the lines of grief and care.

Never have I so deeply felt as now
The hopeless solitude, the abandonment,
The-anguish of a loveless life. Alas!
How can the impassioned, the unfrozen heart
Be happy without love. I wouldthat one
Beautiful,-worthy to be loved and joined
In love with me-now shared mylouely walk
On this tremendous brink. 'Twere sweet to sea
Her dear face touched with paleness, and become
More beautiful from fear, and overspread
Witha faint smile while clinging to my side!
Dreams-dreams. I am an exile, and fur me
There is no country and there is no love.

Hear, dread Niagara, my latest voice!
Yet a few years and the cold earth shall close
Over the bones of hirme who sings thee now
Thus feelingly. XWould that this my humble verse;
Might be like thee, immortal. I, meanwhile,
Cheerfully passing to tihe appointed rest,
Might raise, my radiant forehead in the clouds
To listen to the echoes of my fame.

At No. 187 Pine street, Philadelphia.
FOUNDED A. D'. 1817.
R. and Mrs CHAPMAN, respectfully inform
the people of the United States in general,
tIhat they havie conducted an Institution fo r niupwards
nf NINE YEARS in this city, for the CULE of
HESITANCY, STUTTERING, STAMNiil RING,
LISPING, and every species of DEFECTIVE UT-
TE'R A N CE.
Mr. CHAPMAN, the Original Discoverer of
thIe important system for coring Impediments
of Speech, was himself for upwards of 20 years,
gric'voualy afflicted, apparently, with such ia inca--
rablo stammeriing, attended with a distortion nof
features, as rendered him not only unintelligible,
but a subject of painful ciromnisseration. This fact
has been attested by manay gentlemen of high res-
pectuability, whoine w him while in that slate; and
among o nliheos JOhN V, CIIAPMAN, (his brother)
Principal of the Lower Iubilin Academy.

Twelve years have elipsed since Mr. C. by his
observations discovered the true cause of stammer-
ing. aund 1he method by which hie elected a pernia-
nent cunre on himself; yes, under the blessings of an
all wise Providence, the secret, which had so, long
been hidden from mankind, was happily fund out
by inim! Since then a vast numberof extraordinary
cures have beea effected oun persons of both sexes
old and young, from all parts of the United States
To the names of many of our most respectable
citizens wiho have titsti'led that Mr. Chapman now
speaks with fluency, and that his articulation is re-
marlcably perfect, we may add those of

pleasure in :expressing our satisfaction in the inm-
provement manifest by those pupils, who had crumne
under our notice, whilst they lahboured mnder tIhe
most distressing stammering; and by others, whose
similar situations were attested by their parents or
very respectable persons presenat.- The favorable
charge wrought on these Ipupils was astonishing
and highly gratifying to us. Thie facts with whliclh
we are personally acquainted, andl the accounts we
have heard from sioflicent authority of tlie efficacy
of Mr. and iMrs Chapmani's system induce uts to
recommend their Instotimon to all those who tmayl
be afflicted with any kind of defect of utterance.

m Being requested to visit Mr. and Mrs. Chap-
man's Institution for the cure of Impediments of
Speech. and to contribute our testimony with res-
pect to it, we dt hereby cheerfunlly certify, that we
consider their system perfectly etfectual: that we
conversed with some whI haud been for a few weeks
under Mrs. Chlapnman's care, (thie Institutionhere
being sol-ly conducted by Mrs. C ) who havingbeen
afflicted with apparently itininvcibe hesitancy of ut
terance, from their itini, ,,, smpoke'with the most
perfect fluency" andd CrL ,,-, (if articulation, and
with others, who, having been but a few days under
the discipline of the Institution, evinced the most
wonderful progress in acquiring a complete and
ready comment of thIe erOi'ains of speech.
We believe that in no instance of tlie mast invete-
rate'and long established cases of stammering, has
their mode of relief pt nieoved inefficacious.

We attended an examinalioni of some of thle pupils
of the United States Institutinon for the cure of Im-
pediments of Speech, at No. 1S7 Pine street, in this
city, which is conducted by Williami and Lucretia
Chapman, and we were convinced of ihe expedien-
cy of their plan for removing defects of nutteran'e.
Sn.me of tine pupils had received lessons a few
days, others iw -- week, and others a longer time,
and each of them allorded specnmens of improve-
mtent; and sornimce who lhad been curd- several years
since, gave ample I ',tof of tlih permanentcy of their
cure. Several of the pupils we had seen within the
last two weeks, when labouring under the most dis-
tressing affliction of stammering, were in this short
period restored, to our astonishment, to clear and
distinct articulations, and others of a similar afflic-
tion was stated by respectable entllemen present,
were, to ouri animzement, enabled to converse with-
out hesitancy or impediment oif speech.

Some time in tlIe spring of 1S25,1 Iperforrmned two
operations for the remove I of enlarged tunsils, from
the throat of Joseph Henry tlintckle, a son of Mrs.
Hinckle, of the Northern Liberties. iHe was then
twelve years old, but in consequence of tIe eror-
mous size of the tonsslo, he was altogether unable to
articulate, indeed he could hardly nonarage to swat-
low his fotd; nd every tin eight his inmlter thloght
hinm i danger of snffncatimn. About two weeks ago,
llrs- Chapman, brought him to me, for the plnpose
of demonstrating thIe effects ufher system fio the
cure of stammmners. Althought his throat mw-as lInn
eliar of all disease, he culd not articunlate the
most simple wordsa without stautierihg tn a degree
that was really distress burg. I harn.- tinis day exam-

that he cami answer every question that I amre

PHILAD EL, PHIA :
THURSDAY MORNING, JAN. 18, 1827.

GREEKS.
The troubles of Spain and Portugal, have
for a few days past, almost driven the cause
of the Greeks from public consideration,
but not, as we have reason to believe, from
private bounty. About three thousand dol-
lars have already been subscribed in this
city, towards purchasing the necessaries
of life for the Greeks. Were we Greeks,
suffering as they are now, and have long
been, we should be ready to express as we
should certainly feel the deepest gratitude
for the manifestation of sympathy thus ex-
hibited, and pray, as the bounty of our ben-
efactors was showered upon us, that heaven
would reward them with its choicest bless-
ings.
But as Americans, we may be permitted
to hope, that the amount above stated, is
but the beginning of that munificent aid
which is to be extended from our citizens
to those of Greece; we may certainly ex-
pect indeed, that our citizens thus consi-
der the subscription. The question of aid-
ing the Greeks has now assumed a differ-
ent form from that in which it was first pre-
sented-then the advocates of that oppress-
ed nation, talked to the public of Homer
and his verse; of Sparta and her gallant
sons; of Leuctra and its fame-of Mara-
thon, of Thermopela and their honors-
They quoted the master of verse, as if men
were to bring back the golden age of At-
tica-They talked of Pirmsus, as if it was
notlong since choked with the gods of its
former masters. They spoke of deeds of
arms, of battles, and of victories, as if the
good people of this city did not know that
victories cost blood, and that numbers ra-
ther than justice, too often decide the con-
test.
Now we are told, that women and chil-
dren are suffering the hardships of famine,
pining in sordid poverty, with no means to
shelter them from 'the pityless storm, or
garments to hide their "ragged,looped and
windowed sides"-blessing death that frees
them from their own misery, and hides
them from a sight of that which surrounds
them-Now, the arguments that they are
not refined in manners and do not feel the
want of luxuries as many others might,
has no weight; they are HUMAN BEINGS,
and in the abjectness of misery, in the pel-
tings of hail, in utter starvation-in filial
feeling and maternal tenderness, they may
be allowed sensations equal to those who
fare' sumptuously every day." These ideas
are now operating with the effect of truth
upon the public mind in favour of the
Greeks.
But we hope that it will be remembered
that now they are suffering most from the
inclemency of the season, and now they
need aid-let the charitable therefore, who
intend to yield to the dictates of their bet-
ter feelings, remember the good admoni.
tion:
Whatsoever thy hand fildeth to do, do with
all thy might."

A second person has been committed to
gaol, in Dauphin County, upon suspicion
of having been concerned in the murder of
Miss Germen, and her child.

NEW ENGLAND SUPERSTITIONS-No. VII.

THE DARK DAY.
Concluded.
On the evening of a day marked by ex-
cessive heat,-my mind was just gaining
repose from a violent agitation produced
Sby the unkind, the wicked interference of
unfeeling visitors, I dragged a seat to
my narrow window, and sat down to look
out upon nature, and endeavour to hush the
-.. tumult of my mind, by contemplating
the calmness of the scene before me.
How often, on such an evening, had Miri-
am, gathered the children of the family a-
round her, and while she instilled into
their minds lessons of early love to God,
and reverence to parents-would beguile
them into attention by finding points of re-
semblance of the dark clouds that skirted
the horizon of the West, to sometof those
turreted horrors that she had passed in her
journeys in Europe, and the western shores
of Asia.
I have sat, and watched her till I doubt-
ed whether it was the reflected rays of the
sun or the effect of purest inspiration that
lighted up her face.
My mind slowly recovered its tone-in-
deed I was blest with an unusual tranquil-
ity. I gazed upon the windows of the dis-


tant Church, and as the last beam of the
sun trembled upon its fantastic, diamond
windows, I thought-of her who lay, low
and oI cAl beij n lh its eves.
Th-ere was a method in the arrangement
of my thoughts that gave me hope. I felt


none of those mental aberrations that had
previously distinguished some of my most
favoured moments. I even felt a hope that
I should once more be as other men. As
the sun went down-I could perceive the
edge of the horizon dimmed with a rising
cloud-it rose slowly and heavily-it had
nothing fantastic in its form, it was solid-
and dark-I new its portentions, & retired.
That restive wakefulness, that had hith-
erto marked my nights, was no longer felt;
I was pressed down with a dullness; a stu"
por came over me, and I prepared for rest.
-Hitherto I had known little of dreams;
or it may be that I cannot now distinguish
between the operations of my mind, when
sleeping, and when awake-they were not
essentially different. A consciousness of
some undefined danger-a fear of misap-
prehension-a sense of oppression, and an
inability to make my words express my
thoughts-these were sensations of all times
and all seasons. But I had scarcely disposed
myself upon the little couch in my room,
when my mind became unusually active--
all my existence seemed crowded into a
moment, and in that rgoment was the pres-
ence of Miriam-I was sitting with her up-
on the very point of the beach, on which, I
have so often indulged my, reflections. I
remember now, with strange distinctness,
every little circumstance of that dream.
I saw the waves spend their little force up-
on the bank-and could feel each ripple
which crept far up the sand, moisten my
feet, and give a cooling freshness to my
frame.
Miriam was discoursing, and I gazing
with intensity upon her face-when sud
denly, I thought the dimness of that dark
day came upon us-deeper and blacker, but
not with its stillness. I could see the
sun in the Heavens, but it was shorn
of its beams-lurid, but not bright; and
the deep peals of thunder were sounding
along the Bay, and echoing, from every
height;-I turned for a moment, from the
scene-'and Miriam was gone. I saw her
then upon the waves which the storm had
lifted up-through the gloom I saw her
clinging with one hand to the remnant of a
wreck,and with the other beckoning to me
for help. I started to plunge into the chan
nel--but an unknown power held me to the
ground-another effort, & I sprung from my
couch-The scene had indeed changed, but
scarcely for the better; my mind was affect
ed with the dream, and I rushed to the win-
dow of my room;-what a scene was pre-
sented-the firmament was lighted up by
one sheet of fire, and the wretched building
in which I was confined, seemed to reel with
the'effect of the thunder. I was drench-
ed with the rain, which poured in torrents
upon me,-and felt that some evil out of the
ordinary course of nature, was approach-
ing. I cried aloud for help, but the rever-
berations of the thunder, mocked my voice;
my eyes were seared with the flash of the
lightning; yet I gazed on, as it in hopes of
meeting some object amid the rage of ele-
ments around me. Though much of the ter-
ror of my dream was upon me, I did not
then feel as- I had before; I certainly was
unconscious of insanity; my mind, so far as
the horrors of the scene and the recent
shock of the dream would permit, was unu-
sually regular. I mention this now, be-
cause I know you will think that what I
have yet to say, has more of insanity in it
than my former feelings. Such was the un-
abated glare of light, that I could perceive
distant objects with all the distinctness of
day. My eye, for a moment, rested upon
the distant church; while.I gazed, another
flash of lightning gave new forms to my
perceptions, and I saw a figure,-distinctly,
clearly, saw a female form.-.I gazed with
eagerness-it was MIRIAM. With every
flash of lightning, she was nearer, and more
and more visible. It was reality, there
could be no deception; every other object
was natural. I beat upon the wall, it sent
back its echo, and I felt a sense of pain
from my effort. I closed my eyes, and when
again I looked,she was there. She was, as
I had seen her; there was nothing of death
or the grave upon her; the lightning did
indeed, throw a paleness upon her visage,
and tipped with fire, her hair which the
wind blew wildly about. But it was Miri-
am's form, light and graceful; it was her
face, solemn, but benignant. She approach-
ed and spoke; from a world of voices, I
should know hers.-You are incredulous;
but I have learned-learned by bitter ex-
perience, to distinguish between the phan-
toms of a feverish brain, and the plain visi-
ble objects that Heaven and Earth present
to our outward senses. And, as true as we
now gaze upon yonder rock, rising amidst
the waters; so true I saw the form of Miri-
am, and heard her voice-clear, distinct and
solemn, audible, amidst the most appalling
peals of thunder.-I stretched out my hand
to clasp hers-but though visible and dis-
tinct, I could not reach it:-I called upon
her name-she waved her hand, and reti_
tired rapidly from me-I cried aloud, but
only the thunder answered--I reached
forth from my window, to gaze with great-
er intensity-I saw her still:-the liglht-
nings were playing harmlessly around her
-new life and new strength were infused-


into my fra-re-I scattered the fastening of'
my abode-I felt that no human grasp
could hold me. One strong effort more, and
all would be accomplished.--With my eye
still on the form orfMiriam,I applied my ut-
most force-her hand beckoned me on.
* a- as a


i gazed around, a physician was near my
bed-and my friends were watching me
with anxiety depicted upon their faces-I
attempted to move, but was too weak-I
slowly recovered my strength, and felt that
with physical powers I acquired mental
energies and capacities of directing my
thoughts. To what had passed that night,
I was fully sensible-and I learned that
the building in which I was confined, was
struck by lightning, and 1 was dragged,
bruised and lifeless from its smouldering
ruins.-The shock I had sustained, may
have restored in some measure, my shatter-
ed senses-but still agitation, disquiet, and
one train of thought unsettles me.
It was not long before I recovered suffi-
cient strength to leave the house-I was
no longer watched. I visited every
spot along the shore consecrated by the
remembrance of Miriam's instructions.-
You who never knew confinement, who
was never shut out from life and its en,
gagements cannot judge of my feelings,
when again I set my foot upon these sands
-I gazed over the bay with inexpressible
fondness-I bared my bosom to the cooling
breeze from the waters-I stretched out my
arms as if the yielding air could be'embra-
ced-how I noted upon every hill and,
rock, and with what ecstacy did I remark.
that I was alone-there were none to gaze
upon my expressions of fondness, as there
were surely none who could under I.'rni
them.,
There is, scarcely a rod beyond us, a
brook which rises near the road above 'is,
and finishes its most limited course here in
the bay-In the shade of that rock, I kneel-'
ed and bent over the stream to drink-I
started back with amazement-sickness
might have wrought much upon my face-
but my hair, which, when last reflected
from that surface, was black as the ravens,
was now bleached to the whiteness of snow
-and this was grief-mental :'sii i-lh.
Among the few articles left by Miriam.,
appeared a gold coin-almost unobserved,
I smoothed the piece, and with my knife
I etched upon it, her name and age-anid at
night, I visited her grave-there was nei-
ther stone nor hillock to denote it, yet I
knew the spot, and with an iron bar, I
forced an opening from the surface, to the
coffin, and I dropped into it the piece of
gold-I heard it fall upon the decaying-ten-
ement of her sacred frame-and filling the
aperture, left the place.
The coin which I had deposited, would
have purchased a splendid monument for
Miriam-but her memorials should be like
-her virtues-pure, rich, unobtrusive.
Should any event lead to.the disturbance
of the dead in yonder cemetery, her resting
place may be recognized by the otn, with
this simple legend,
HIere Steeps MIRIAM DAVIDS, .' ,
rlaugtpter er'./lhb 'ain' .asrf, a natilv of
Sallzbury in TYansylvania -
I have done:-from that time, I have
spent my days upon this shore, and the dis-
tant beach, combatting at seasons, with the
disposition of my mind to wander, leading
a useless and an unhappy life, When again
we meet, I will place in your hands, the
manuscripts of Miriam-I cannot trust my-
self to read them."

A few days following that on which the
unhappy man concluded his narrative. I
met him in his usual walk; when he put in-
to my hands the manuscript, which he had
promised, together with a small package
containing papers, which be himself wrote
during his confinement.-These perhaps,
I should not publish-but, I have his per-
mission to print the whole or any part of
Miriam's writing--a liberty which I shall
use, upon any reasonable intimation of cu-
riosity on the part of my readers. C.

FOR THE UNITED STATES GAZETTE.
Messrs. Editors-I have been frequently amu-
sed, when I have visited New-York, at the high-
sounding names they have given to things there-
for instance: Castle-Garden, Bowery, Battery,
Bowling Green, (a grass plot, about as large as a
common sized asparagus bed,) Avenues No. 1,2,
3, &c. which are in fact roads--Park Place, a ia-
vern nearly opposite tp the Park, wI i m in th- .
peculiar to the Yorkers. I recollect a sign on a
house designating, the occupation, (as I suppose)
of its tenant, "Peh'ontt.atist.'' The Latin wvord
pedes, gives it something like. the distant sound
of Shoemaker--what peculiarity! But, this may
be the mere wim of an individual; itishoa veer,
characteristic of the people living in the greatest
City in the Uilted States of Aimerticas-It is cha-
racteristic of a people, prone to flattery, and in-'
chined on most occasions, to pUff off and pcuff' up
themseloes-It is characteristic of a people,' \l;:,
two years ago, asserted in many of their public
journals, again and again, that 4,000 brick houses
were building in New York in that year, when on
enuttmerating them, by their own acknowledgment,
there was less than 1800, including frame hoIuses,
and those composed of brick fronts and wooden
.sides! But I do not mean to scrutinize too closely
into thismatter, or to excite any unpleasant feel-
ings on the occasion, so as to produce acrimnuonioiis
syutptoms of retaliation! No, No!--We ought to
live in peice and harmony, as,neighbors and ,bre-
theren of the same family, discarding every feeling
of resenhtent, relahiation, envy, jealousy, ill will,
animosity and misrepresentation, against each oth-
er;-we ought to live in harmony, good fellowship
and peace, without resorling to comparisons of a
disparagiug nalimie! Why call this City by the op-
Iprobious name of Redheffer? which I observe has
been done by the New-York papers in noticing the
arrival of thIe Aolomaton Chess player here. Per-
haps it was inadvertantly done without mrlice a-
forethought." If so, I forgive them with all my
heart. But, that the inhabitants of the great City
should consider Philadelphia in comparison, as a
mere village, and its commerce as that of an inland
town; its population,as a Birmingham to a London;
andrl the Break-wat&r, at the mouth of the Dela-
ware, as altogelher unnecessary, are circumstances


not at all calculated to effect the object oi entire
pacification-and yet,, reflection prompts tpe to
the enquiriy: Is it not generous to spare,a fallen
enemy? I thinkso-and shall therefore pursue the
subject no further. .Jl' eal 1-,',-..r,' (

It is reported by a vessel arrived at Mo-
bile, that a boat belonging to the United


S'S.ates frigate Constellation, was fired into
from a Spanish frigate in the port of Havana.
The officer of the boat was' detained as a
prisoner, on board the Spanish frigate, du.
ring one night. The commander of the
constellation demanded the liberation of
the officer, and the punishment of the cap-
tain who had committed the outrage, and
who was under trial when the Morning
Star sailed, and it was thought would be
broke.

A duel took place on Monday the 4th
inst on the Alabama line, near the River
Perdido, between Capt. Ramage, of the Na-
vy, and Dr. Macomb of the Army, in which
the former was wounded, but we understand
not severely.-Mobile Reg. 12th Dec.

We learn by the Seine, arrived last eve-
ning from Gibraltar, that Lord Cochrane
was still at Marseilles, and had succeeded
in purchasing a 64 gun ship and a corvette
of 24 guns which he intended for the Greek
service.-N. Y. Times.

Sleighing.-For two or three days past
the sleighing in our neighbourhood has
been better than for many years. Yester-
day it was excellent within a mile of the
City Hall, and several of the stages started
ed upon runners.-ib.

We understand that measures are soon to
be taken for the removal of the remains of
Lieutenant Allen, who was killed by the
pirates and buried at Cuba, to his native
place, Hudson, in the state ofN. York.-ib.

The house of Isaac Serine, of Hector. in ltis
state, was'destroyed by fire on the 1st inst and
a child 3 years old perished in the flames. A lad
13 years of age,who slept inu the same room with
the child, was so badly burnt in endeavouring to
save it, that he died the following evening.-A
Y..dvo.

Lotteries.-We have not yet seen the bill
of Mr. Wright, relative to lotteries-but we
have a word to say on the subject: We are
against lotteries in the abstract, as they en-
courage a spirit of adventure incompatible
with the means of individuals- but they are
authorized by the state; and Messrs. Yates
& M'Intyre,on the faith of the state, have
contracted to draw them, and no charge am
against their fidelity or liberality has been
made. As toprobibiting the sale of foreign
lottery tickets, if by foreign is meant tick-
ets authorized by another state, we cannot
conceive how such a law can be constitu-
tionally enforced, any more than a prohibi-
tion not to have or offer in payment the bank
note of another state. Citizens of one state
are admitted to all the rights and privileges
of another; and it presents a question of
great latitude. With respect to the sale of
shares, and the advanced price of a license,
and othar guards against fraud, they may
all be necessary.-N. Y. Enq.

Outrage on American Citizens at Rio.-
We learn from Capt. Hutchens, of the, brig
Midas, that a serious disturbance took place
at Rio Janeiro, a few days previous to his
sailing, in.Nov. last, in consequence of the
iirpre -s.ict of a nlai iwho represented him-

who was superintending some workman
from the ship, in making or repairing a

severely. Lieut Levy, 1st of the Cyane,
who came to the scene of conflict, was also
wounded by the the bayonets of the press.-
gang. Capt. Hutchins' Mate and 4 men
were pressed by the gang; and the Captain
of a Brig belonging to New-York, was ta-
ken by these marauders, and carried beyond
the suburbs of the town, all of them, how-
ever, were subsequently released.-Beacon.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 16.
It is understood that the Senate of the
United States has confirmed the nomina-
tion of JOEL R. POINSETT to the office of
Minister to the Assembly of American Na-
tions at Tacubaya, and that of WILLIAM
JONES to the office of Collector of the Cus-
toms for the Port of Philadelphia.-Intel.

We learn unofficially, and we learn it
with pleasure, that TENCH RINGGOLD has
been re-appointed by the President, with
the unanimous consent of the Senate, to be
Marshal of the United States for the Dis.
trict of Columbia, for four years from the
31st of January inst. when his present term
of service will expire.-Ib.

The Committee on the application of the
Vice-President continues to sit daily. We
have, not learned what progress has been
made in the investigation, but think it
probable, from the time it has already oc-
cupied their attention,' that it must be
brought nearly to an end.-Journal.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 16.
In the Senate yesterday, a bill was re-
ported authorizing those purchasers'of Pub-
lic Lands who had relinquished the same,
to repurchase them at a fixed-price. Mr.
Cona submitted a resolution proposing an
inquiry into the expediency of compensa-
ting the Third Auditor for services render-
ed under an act of March 3d, 1825. The
bill for increasing the salary of the Post

ST. MARTINSVILL'E, Lou. Dee. 16.
The brig Attakapas, we understand, left the
bayou Teche yesterday, with a full freight of this
year's crop of Sugar, bound for Charleston, in
South Carolina. She is reported by those who
have been on board of her,to be a very superb ves-
sel of her class. She came from the Capes of Del-
aware- to Belle Isle, off the Teche, in 13 days, aud
her owners have already engaged freight for her,
from our District, for three or four voyages more.
She is intended to ply between Franklin and Phi-
ladelphia. A fear that the Delaware might be
frozen up before she could enter it, alone prevent-
ed her sailing for that port this voyage.
The Attakapas brought out an assorted cargo
of Dry Goods and Hardware, which was purchased
at veryAlow prices by Messrs Levi Foster and Caf-
ferty at Sterling, ofFrauklin.
The opening of our communication direct with
the Ocean, will be ef incalculable advantage to
Atsakapas. It will prevent many losses Nwhich oc-
cur in shipments made of produce in keel boats to
New Orleans, and enable our retail merchants to
sell their wares and merchandize at lower prices
than they have heretofore exacted.
The Attakapas was towed out to sea by the
steam boat Louisville.

Certificate of the Proprietor.
This is to certify that I have nnointted Doctor --
ROBERT H-LAtRIt, jun. of PhiladIetplia, my only
agent in the United States, to dispose of that
valuable, medicine, called the Polad lphis, or India
Extract, with full power to appoint agents where
he may think proper; aInd as the great demand
may induce unprincipled persons, to fabricate the
medicine to the injury of the public, I have thought
proper to accompany this certificate, signed in my
own hand writing, with thie directions round each
box; and the more effectually to detect counter-
feits, the public will observe fit e signature of my
agent on the outside of every box. To counterfeit
w.ich! is felony. And the purchaser is requested
to examine carefully the outside of the Box, and if
the name of Robert Harris, jun. is not on it the
Medicine is not genuine. Signed at my office, No
22 Greek Street, LONDON.
