TONIC AND ANTI DYSPEPTIC
IT has at all times been an object of
peculiar importance to the Medi-
cal world to discover some medicine,
or combination of medicines, which
would operate in such a manner as to
cleanse the stomach and intestines of
all offensive and irritating matter, and
not debilitate them. From the want of
such a medicine, physicians have not
been able to perform a cure in one case
out of ten of confirmed Dyspepsia or
Indigestion, and therefore satisfy them-
selves by producing a temporary relief
with emetic and purgative medicines ;
but so much debility of the stomach is
produced by this course, that before it
has regained its former tone, the same
offensive matter is accumulated, and
with it all the distressing symptoms re-
turn, even aggravated.
To relieve this obstinate disease the
whole Materia Medica has been tried,
from the most powerful articles down
to charcoal and wheat bran; but for the
want of such a medicine, nothing but
a temporary relief has been procured,
and often the remedy has been worse
on the constitution than the disease.
These pills are offered to the public
with a confidence produced by long ex-
perience in practice, that they will pro-
duce that desirable effect. Such are
their virtues, that they will operate
gently as a purgative, and as effectually
cleanse the stomach and intestines of all
offensive and ?rritating matter as any
medicine now known, and will not de-
bilitate them, nor produce the least
sickness or nausea; on the contrary, the
appetite and feelings generally will be
improved in one hour after they are ta-
ken. They can be used at all times and
by all ages. No attention is necessary
to diet or drink, or exposures to wet or
cold, while using them. They are the
best preventive of those diseases gene-
rally termed Bilious, and will frequent-
S ly perform a cure without any other
aid. A few boxes will be found gene-
rally sufficient to remove the most con-
firmed Dyspepsia, with all its distress-
S ing symptoms. Headache, Sickness
and Sourness of the stomach, Loss of
Appetite, Habitual Costiveness, Cholic,
Despondency of mind, and a host of
" nervous Affections, with which every
3 person laboring under the disease is
S more or less afflicted.

THE LITTLE SWAID.
(A LITTLE BALLAD-A LITTLE ORIGINAL.)
There was a little maid
Who wore a little bonnet,
And she had a little finger
With a little ring upon it.
She screwed her little waist,
To such a little size,
That made her little blood
Rush to her little eyes.
This pretty little maid
Had a pretty little bet 4
Who wore a little hat,
And gloves as white as ow.
IHe said his little heart
Was in a little fli.tir-
That he loved the titil ruwid,
And no one else but-he'r.
She smiled a little smile,
When he breathed his little vows;
And he kissed her little hand,
With many little bows.
By little and by little
Her little heart did yield,
Till little tears and sighs,
Her little fears revealed.
A little while-alas!
And her little beau departed,
With all his little vows,
And left her broken-hearted.
Now, all ye little maids,
A moral I will give you ;
Don't trust to little men.
They surely will deceive you.
From the .New Iampshire Gazette.
I'mM NOT ENGAGED.
I'm not engaged! I'm not engaged!
I'd have you, sir, to know,
That I am free, at liberty,
And waiting for a beau!
The girls near by are all engaged;
Their summers were but brief;
And I'm the last upon the tree,
But not a withered leaf.
I'm not engaged! I'm not engaged
My age is twenty-two-
[And has been so the last four years;
Of course it is most true;]
And some of these same girls changed names,
When hardly seventeen;
And I've not had an offer yet-
0 dear, what does it mean !
I'm not engaged! I'm not engaged!
It seems so very queer,
I'm half inclined to smile at it;
And yet, I drop a tear.
I'm not the plainest girl in town,
If mirrors tell mo true:
I've known far plainer girls engaged-
O! say, sir, have not you ?
I'm not engaged! I'm not engaged!
Nor know the reason why:
I've not slighted ma's advice,
Who told me I must TRYI !
I've talked of sentiment and song,
And romance, quite enough ;
But now I fear I'm giving o'er
To taking tea and snuff !
I'm not engaged! I'm not engaged!
Perhaps I ne'er shall be :
The beaus have smiles for other girls,
But only laugh at me !
And pa and ma, in confidence,
Declared they were afraid
That I should soon be called, by men,
A horrid sad old maid!

THE LOVER'S QUA.RR-ELT
Alas how slight a cause may move
Dissention between hearts that love."
Will the reader please to picture an
ap.-artment in the mansion of Lord Hart-
ley', appropriated to the use of his
dp %'ghter, the Lady Caroline Alton-
6 :Ptiressing room. It was about nine
o6T&rck by the French dial, upon which
her eyes were fixed. Her manner was
abstracted and serious; she appeared to
be thinking of any thing rather than
what her maid was speaking of, which
was, whether "my lady would choose
to wear peatrlIs to-night," upon the
fourth repetition of which question the
lady turned impatiently, and answered,
"Yes-no-stay; I do not think I will
go," and then relapsedrinto her previous
Lady Caroline Alton was an only
child; a great beauty, and a great heir-
ess, and a leetle spoiled. She was gene-
rous and kind-hearted to all, but capri-
cious and self-willed to many, and among
the rest, to one who the least deserved
it, and was the least disposed to bear it.
The one we speak of was Charles Les-
lie, a gentleman in the only true sense of
the term, that is to say, he had a noble
heart joined to a clear head: he savw the
faults of Lady Caroline, and sometimes
trembled for their future peace, but he
remembered that she had not a mother
to guide her, and that her father was
too much immersed in politics, and too
proud of her to notice and check her
impetuosity; he remembered too-but
what will not a lover remember or in-
vent in extenuation of the loved one!
He had known her from a child, and
had sometime since given her a brace-
let in which was set his miniature; this
bracelet was now the cause of the lady's
abstraction. Leslie and herself had met
at a party the previous evening and
had not separated the best of friends.-
Among many others of the same stamp
who were assembled at the party, was a
Mr. Mordaunt, one of a race justly call-
ed "butterflies," who serve by their glit-
ter to dazzle and amuse, but are of no
earthly use besides. He was light, vain
and handsome, just such a one as Lady
Caroline would like to flirt with one
hour and forget the next; but Leslie was
no admirer of flirting, and not at all
disposed to conquer his dislike in favor
of Henry Mordaunt and his "own Ca-
roline." But to return: Leslie had dis-
pleased her about some trifle, so she de-
termined to vex him by receiving, not
unwillingly it would seem, the flatteries
and attentions of Mordaunt; this had
been carried so far the night before,
that when encouraged by her manner
and glad of an opportunity to annoy
Leslie, he had asked her to waltz, she
consented. This she knew was suffi-
cient to annoy him at any time. What
a pity love is so selfish a passion.
As is usual in all cases, one wrong
led to another. In waltzing, Mordaunt
must, accidentally of course, have press-
ed her arm, and in so doing unclasped
the bracelet which she always wore.-
Leslie was standing looking on with a
composed countenance, and a very in-
dignant and angry heart, when the
bracelet fell near nis feet; his first im-N
pulse was to walk away, but he repress-
ed it until he deposited the ornament in
his waistcoat pocket; he then left the
room, and Caroline saw no more of him
for the evening. She returned home
intoxicated with flattery and proud of
her new conquest, but with a vague,
restless, uneasy feeling at her heart.
The morning came, and with it visi-
ters in plenty, but not him who was the
most regular, and to tell the truth, the
most welcome of all. She inquired,
but no card had been left. She remem-
bered promising Mordaunt the night
before that she would see him at the 0-
pera that night, and she was now hesi-
tating whether or not she would keep
her promise, and wondered how Char'les
Leslie would return her bracelet, or0
whether it would be proper for her too
ask him for it. "It is nine o'clock,"
she repeated to herself, "nine o'clock,
and he has not been all day! I am sure
there was not much harm in my waltz-
ing and singing duets with Mordaunt,
and if there were, it was Charles's fault;
he certainly has a very bad temper.-
How stupid of me," she continued, as
her maid again reminded her of dress-
ing, "how ridiculous of me to wait; he
will be sure not to come now, and it is
of no consequence to me if he does not
come at all." But her heart cast back
the assertion, and when the next mo-
ment a cabriolet stopped at the door, it
set her heart trembling, and her cheeks
blushing in a very ominous manner.-
She heard him enter the drawing-room,
and calling up courage and coolness to
assist her, went to join him. He was
standing at a table reading-oh! most
unfortunate-a card from Henry Mor-
daunt, which he had, for the first time,
presumed to leave at the door. Leslie
laid it down on her entrance. "Good
evening, Lady Caroline," said he, in
the coldest possible tone. The lady re-
turned the greeting with as cold a bow,
she dared not trust her voice. There
was a short silence, the gentleman was
evidently hesitating how to begin.-
He made up his mind at last, however,
and taking great pains to speak in a
calm steady voice, which in very spite
of him would tremble a little, said:
"I took the liberty of intruding at
this hour, Lady Caroline Alton, as it is
probable I may not have another oppor-
tunity previous to my leaving England."
The lady started almost from her
seat, bit Leslie had been looking quite
in a crhtrary direction, and when he
heard the rustling of her dress, you
might have traced a gleam of satisfac-
tion on his face, but it disappeared in-
stantly on his turning round and per-
ceiving her playing with her dog which
lay on the ottoman at her feet, and pay-
ing much greater attention to him than
to the haughty gentleman opposite her.
He resumed in a much firmer voice.
"Your conduct of last evening was
quite sufficient to convince me that I
had lost any little interest I once flat-
tered myself that I possessed over your
heart; for had not that been the case,
regard for my feelings, even had you
none for your own character, would
have forbidden your very remarkable
behaviour towards that puppy, that con-
summate fool, that-that-I beg your
pardon, Madam, towards Mr. Henry
Mordaunt. I have to return also a trin-
ket which you dropped last night while
It is not an easy task to describe at
any time the various and rapid feelings
of a human heart, and that heart a
woman's, surprise, sorrow and pride,
were all busy with Lady Caroline, the
last mentioned gained the victory for
the time and she rose as he offered the
bracelet, cheek, neck and brow were
crimsoned with passion, and she spoke
fast and thickly.
"Excuse me, sir, it is I who have to
return that trinket, and to express my
regret at ever having accepted it. The
foolish professions made on both sides
at the time of the gift, had better, nay,
indeed, shall be forgotten. I am glad
my conduct of last night saves me the
trouble of expressing my feelings, and
congratulate you on your talent for read-
ing manner so perfectly."
Now, Charles Leslie had by no means
calculated on such a speech, and it had
exactly the same effect upon him as his
had previously had on the lady, that of
making him more angry, more indig-
nant and more proud than ever; so,
drawing on his gloves in such a manner
as indicated that he really was in earn-
est, that is to say, at the expense of a
fracture to one of them from top to
bottom, he answered, "Such being the
case, Madam, I will intrude on your
valuable time no longer," and taking
up his hat and walking towards the
door, he ended his visit with the same
words in which he commenced-"Good
evening, Lady Caroline!"-and disap-
peared. It is not to be supposed that
Caroline had retained her composure
without a severe struggle, and now,
when there was no longer a necessity
for it, now she was alone, (alone, in-
deed!.he had just gone, and for ever!)
she who had been all coldness and pride,
and appeared as though she had never
heard of such a thing as a heart, was all
tenderness and sorrow, and burying her
face in the pillows of the sofa, she sob-
ed in intense grief. She had remained
so for some minutes, when a hand touch-
ed her shoulder; she started-trembled
violently-but dared not look up; she
knew that lie was beside her, and a wit-
ness to all her weakness. He had re-
turned with the intention of telling her
that he should leave England the fol-
lowing week, but that was forgotten ;
her conduct, her harsh words and all
were forgotten, for the sake of those
tears. He laid his hand on her shoul-
ders, a few low whispered words were
uttered of repentance and forgiveness ;
she suffered herself to be drawn nearer
to him, his arm encircled her waist,
and But is it not a most unfair
intrusion of ours, gentle reader? We
will be guilty of the rudeness no longer:
suffice it, these two proud, indignant,
angry people, were the best of friends
in the world in five minutes, and after
another word or two about "the puppy
Mordaunt," it was all over.
And well do vanished frown ecnhaneo,
The charm of every heightened glance,
And dearer seems each dawning smile
For having lost its light awhile.

LETTER FROIM 1MR. RUSH.
Copy of a letter to the editors of the Globe,
'LONDON, April 24, 1837.
'G TIE ITMEe: I have understood, since the last
arrivals from our country, that the whig presses
have abused me for the share I was supposed to
have hail in the reprint here last autumn of a
portion of the letter addressed by the late Vice
President of the United States to the honorable
Sherrod Williams, a member of Congress from
Kentucky. I say understood, having neither
seen nor read the abuse. On my own accotfnt,
I would not nolice it; but the whole occurrence
is too remarkable not to be improved under pub-
lie views; and I therefore ask the favor of being
allowed to make you this public communication
on tile subject.
On arriving in 'this capital in September, I
had soon occasion to observe that those who
were 'in the interest of the Bank of the United
States lost nothing by omitting to sound its
praises. The London journals of almost every
day brought forth articles of this nature, with
-the rough handling of those who thought diffe-
rently. Ignoratmuses, simpletons, factionists,
demagogues, these, or terms alike choice and
mannerly, were applied to our countrymen who
had raised their voices against the bank. I will
own that I sometimes felt an inclination to pre-
sent to that portion of the community who cared
any thing about the question, some other views
of it, never having up to that date seen or heard
of any others in English newspapers. The writ-
ing and printing was wholly on one side. Ne-
vertlheless, I abstained, I published not a line
upon the subject. I wrote not a line; nor did I
ever, in the slightest manner, instigate others to
do either, though London, it may be supposed,
is seldom wanting in pens ready to obey this kind
of instigation. I was entirely passive-inno-
cent of laying a straw in the bank's way. I
scarcely as much as opened my lips about it in
English circles, it being rarely a topic with those
4 -chanced to be among. During all this time
there was one thing struck me as very improper.
Our Presidential election was pending; and no-
thing was more common in these articles, or
others prepared in the same spirit, than to see
it affirmed or insinuated that Mr. Van Buren, if
chosen, would be friendly to the bank. Still I
.remained totally silent.
So matters stood, when the letter to Mr. Wil-
liams arrived. If I rightly remember, this was
in October. Republished in any of the newspa-
pers where the bank spirit so predominated?-
To be sure it was not. It could hardly have
been expected. As far as I know, it was never
alluded to in them; but the part about the bank
contained at all events, Mr. Van Buren's opi-
nions. These, though often and unequivocally
before his own country had been stifled or per-
verted in this. The letter, moreover, unfolded
his opinions generally and very fully on the con-
nection proper to subsist between our Govern-
ment and banks, introducing with them other
topics relevant to so broad a discussion. It can
scarcely be necessary to add that this was all
argumentatively and calmly done, -and without
violating any respect due to others.
Reasonable minds could not have projected,
imagination could not have conceived, of a pa-
per more proper to go before the public, uniting
with a juncture so fitted for its appearance. Its
author held the highest official post of his coun-
try next to the Presidency, and was a candidate
for that. The opinion of a person placed in
such a relation to the political movements go-
ing on at home in a great nation, with the chance
before him of soon being identified with its pub-
lic will and measures, was of public concern
throughout tho world. If he spoke unfavora-
bly of the bank, so much more important that it
should be known. His letter was no partizan
production. It was dragged from his reluctant
consent by the reiterated queries of a member
of the House of Representatives; thus, however,
imparting to it, by the position of both parties,
and more especially in the estimate 'of foreign
nations, if not the semblance of an official pa-
per, at least an authle.nticity and a dignity cal-
culated to give it a totally different place in the
eyes of the candid and well judging from any
.that could be claimed by the stock-jobbing arti-
cles I have mentioned. Perceiving this to be its
character, I spoke of it to a respectable publish-
er I had known here formerly, asking him to
procure its insertion in one of the daily papers.
I chose, as a stranger, to avoid contact, in my
own person, with any of the newspaper estab-
lishments here, but never dreamed that there
could be any objection to its insertion; still less
that I was doing wrong in expressing a wish for
it. He replied, that he did not think he could
get it inserted in a daily paper, the commercial
ones beihg in an opposite influence, and those
having a different set of readers not being suf-
ficiently interested in the discussion; but, struck
with its character, immediately said he would
reprint it himself in the form of a pamphlet,
which he thought it well merited, if I would aid
.him in drawing tp a short explanatory introduc-
I assented; the pamphlet was published, and
hence my crime.
A single word more on this part of the case.
For whatever may have been my share in the
preface, I can at least say that it contains abu-
sive epithets of no one.
This is the real transaction. I trust that it
. will become known extensively to the American
public through your columns. 1 look back upon
it with amazement. Entirelydo I deceive my-
self if there be not features in it to excite indig-
nation in the United States, every where but a-
mong the prejudiced votaries of the bank; and
not on my account, but for the public principle
and consequences that sink to nothing any indi-
I came here, finding its partizans ever busy
in gloryfying their idol and reviling those who
had not bowed down to it. They took their
tone from a portion of our own press. Here
they monopolized the press. Thetfirt rule of
justice in the human bosom, hear the other side,
seemed utterly unknown to them. This had
been the case, I was informed fof years; that is,
during the whole bank war; its advocates, and
all at their beck, forming an exclusive phalanx
for defending it, 'without the least counterac-
tion, on this side of the Atlantic, from those
who had witnessed its deeds and the national
wo they engendered. After so long and unin-
terrupted a view only of one side of the ques-
tion, there arrives from the United States a do-
cument presenting a calm view of the other; a
document entitled to respect from the source
whence it proceeded, but more by the intrinsic
recommendations of temper a.nd decorum which villifies, calumniates, and steeps itself in venom,

"OUR COUNTER RIGHT Oil WRONG."
G. W. BOWMAN, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR.
The Hton.JAM ES BUCHANAN passed through
Bedford a few days since on an excursion to the
West. This noble son of the "Keystone" is
greeted with the smiles and friendship of a re-
publican people wherever lie goes. Mr. B. is
justly termed the "Star" of the Senate cham-
ber by the Democracy of Pennsylvania, and a
free people only wait for an opportunity to con-
fer higher honors upon him.
Col. JAMES REESIDE, our former highly es-
teemed Stage Proprietor and Mail Contractor
on this road, arrived at this place on Tuesday
last, and lodges at the "Washington Hotel."-
The Colonel is looked upon as one of the most
enterprizing Stage Proprietors in the Union, and
his appearance in Bedford is always hailed with
unlimited pleasure by his numerous friends.
WASHINGTON HOTEL I
The Washington Hotel in this place is fitted
up, for the reception of visitors, in a. style of
superiority inferior to no house in the State, and
it already presents the appearance of being
thronged with the most fashionable circles that
visit our springs. Messrs. OrNTINGER DILLON,
the present proprietors, are truly deserving a
liberal support, having spared neither pains nor
expense to render their guests agreeable and
happy, and being qualified, in every respect, to
discharge the duties of so extensive an estab-
lishment. The courtesy and gentlemanly de-
portment of the Landlords have secured for
them the esteem and approbation of all who
have yet patronized their house, and we feel
warranted in the assertion that none will go a-
way dissatisfied who make this Hotel their tem-
4TH OPr JULY.
Next week we will lay before our readers the
proceedings of the "Schellsburg Guards," and
other citizens of Napier, at the house of our es-
teemed friend, Mr. ROCK. The toasts breathe
the spirit of men who are determined to be free,
and whose laudable design cannot be crushed by
the clamor of the Bank aristocrats.
The Democracy of Napier have acted in con-
cert with their Republican friends throughout
the Union-and, so far as we have heard, the
same spirit pervades every township in Bedford
county. The holy flame is spreading, and every
Patriot's breast is penetrated with the impoi-
tance of sustaining the people against the en-
croachments of a powerful British Monied Ifi-
Old Napier, always in the front ranks of the
Democracy of Bedford county, has gallantly
played her part, and the bold sentiments of her
people rejects with scorn the glittering fetters
of a British Tyrant. May the spirit of 1776,
which pervades their social circle, never be
crushed-may it flourish like the cedar planted
near the river side, and may time give stability
to that which is sanctified by FREEDOM.
The "Guards" were well equipped, and pre-
sented a beautiful and soldier like appearance,
their conduct during the whole day being that
of gentlemen and Republicans.
In the absence of the Declaration of Indepen-
dence-that most sacred of all documents-Col.
McELWEE addressed the assembled multitude
in a strain of eloquence and patriotism that fas-
tened the attention of every individual at the
table, and portrayed, in beautiful language, the
glorious inheritance of freedom bequeathed us by
that holy instrument of writing.
In prefacing his sentiment, MICHAEL REED,
Esq. also addressed the meeting in a very appro-
priate and Republican style, for which he re-
ceived the merited applause of the company.
The recent election in the Third District for a
member of Congress resulted in the choice of
Mr. Naylor by a majority of 231 votes over Mr.
Ingersoll. This was nothing more than was to
have been expected. The Banks being all clos-
ed, the Directors, Stockholders, and their depen-
dants, were all on the ground, and they made
the most desperate and villainous effort to car-
ry the election that ever disgraced Pennsylvania
-in fact it is said that several hundred illegal
Bank votes were polled-and the Whigs procur-
ed two or three hundred votes at least by con-
tending that Martin Van Buren had expressed a
preference for Naylor, and that he was a real
IIARD MONEY man, and that Ingersoll was in
favor of "Bank rags." .What, then, have the
Whigs gained? Nothing-unless Naylor disre-
gards his pledges, and then he will stand brand-
ed as a Traitor to his avowed principles. The
doctrines of the Nova Scotia Whigs arc so in-
fernally dishonest and contemptible, that they
dare not appear before the people in their true
colors, but always skulk like a dog after sheep.
Democrats would consider victory under such
circumstances murder in the first degree.
MR. VAN BUREN IN FRANCE.
The National, one of the leading journals of
Paris, in republishing the inaugural address of
Mr. Van Buren, makes the following remarks:
The installation of the new President of the
United States took place on the fourth of March
last. The ceremonial observed on the occasion of
this solemnity, differs as much, as one may sup-
pose, from the gorgeous pomp of Europe, as de-
mocracy is different from monarchies, more or
less absolute, which flourish on this side of the
Atlantic. During this solemnity, in the midst of
an immense concourse of citizens, assembled
from all parts of the Union at the federal city,
Mr. Van Buren and his predecessor (Gen. Jack-
son) were borne in the same chariot to the capi-
tol. They both, attended by the authorities of
the republic, took their places under the portico
of that vast edifice. The newly elected Presi-
dent, after having taken the oath of office be-
fore the eonple, and at their hands, delivered in
that imposing attitude his inaugural address, in
which he explained the principles by which he
would be guided during his popular magistracy.
The swelling multitude which received the oath
and the address of Mr. Van Buren, covered at
that moment the summit of the bill on which
proudly towers the capitol of America.
"If a European had been present at this cere-
mony, it would certainly have been for him a
subject of deep meditation, to see the people of
a great nation contract alliance with their chief,
freely elected, and particularly to see the old
General, the most renowned military chieftain
of the day, and but lately invested with power
little less than royal, conduct his successor to the
presidential chair, from which he himself was
about to retire with willing anticipation to pri-
vate life, after the example of his predecessors,
Washington and Jefferson.
"It is thus that at every successive period of
four years, the unfavorable predictions which
have been made at the cradle of American In-
dependence have failed. These presidential e-
lections, which the friends of monarchy in Eu-
rope have asserted would be attended by the ef-
fusion of blood, are affected with as much quiet
as the appointment of the most obscure muni-
cipal counsellor of any village in France. Those
who predicted that they would see scenes of an-
archy and ambition, similar to the tumultuous
diet of elections in Poland, seem to have forgot-
ten that the nobility alone elected the kings of
that Empire; whilst in the United States the
whole people, the sovereign people, exercise
that high and supreme power. Aristocracy is
turbulent in its nature, and is divided into fac-
tions, the necessary fate of a country possess-
ing titled families. Democracy, on the contra-
ry, is one, that of the nation. This is the great
lesson which the United States are called to give
to the world.
Mr. Van Buren, as he himself has remark-
ed, is the first president who was born subse-
quently to the war of independence. The ge-
neration of the fathers of the Union has thus
passed away. Posterity has commenced for
them; and it has touched their labors, merely to
give them progressive perfection. The debts
contracted during tho wars with England are
paid off, and the only embarrassment in finance
now existing in the United States, is the most
useful employment of the surplus revenue of the
government. The population has increased,
within the third part of a century, from four to
fifteen millions. There are eight hundred leagues
of rail roads already made, and one thousand
three hundred leagues of canals. The exports
of the United States, which in 1820 amounted,
to two hundred and seventy-five millions ofe
francs, exceeded in 1835, the sum of five hun-'
dred and thirty millions. Finally primary in-
struction is guaranteed to the whole population
of the confederacy.
These are the principal traits of increasing
prosperity, in the midst of which, Mr. Van Bu-
ren has been elected to fill the first place in the
government of the United States. His address
presents a brilliant perspective, whilst at the
same time it gives the assurance that the coun-
try will be preserved in the career which it has
chosen. The inaugural address of Mr. Van
Buren must inspire full confidence in the con-
victions of the friends of democracy."
From the Columbia Democrat.
In 1828 there was but twenty nfillions
of dollars of specie in the United States,
hut owing to the wise policy of General
Jackson's administration, it had in-
creased last year to the enormous a-
mount of Eighty millions of dollars.-
This sum was in the vaults of the dif-
ferent Banks when they suspended spe-
cie payments about a month since: and
if we examine their last report to the
Auditor General we find the fact record-
ed under oath, that they.had more spe-
cie in their vaults at that time than at
any previous period of their existence.
Then why stop specie payments? Is it
for the benefit of the farmer, the me-
chanic, or the workingman? Far from
it. The object ol the Banks is of a dif-
ferent nature entirely. As monied con-
cerns, they wish to render all classes
subservient to the influence of wealth;
and, as a political party, they are at-
tempting to force the charter of a Na-
tional Bank by Congress, to re-enact
the scenes of bribery and corruption
which we can all recollect distinctly,
and to control our markets and our bal-
lot boxes by their circulation of rags.-
A short time hence, and their intentions
will be disclosed. The Congress which
assembles in September will 'be called
upon to carry their designs into effect;
and if the bargain and sale principle
which procured a recharter of the U-
nited States Bank by out legislature be
not adopted, it wi!l be owing to the
previously ascertained integrity of the
democratic representatives. Let the
people examine the villainous system
of Banking-let them elect none but in-
strutted representatives to carry out
their determinations of reform in that
quarter; and we shall no more hear of
bribery and treachery-of embarrass-
ment in the monetary concerns of our
country-of suspension of specie pay-
ments-or the illegal circulation of
shin-plasters. Look at the concert of
action among the Banks from one ex-
treme end of the Union to the other-
all pursuing the same oppressive policy
at the same time-and all attributing
the cause to the operations of one ano-
ther. Were they not instructed in this
matter by the Thirty Five million Mon-
ster? .Can FREEMEN bow to such dicta-
tion? If so, then must they suffer the
consequences; but we know that the
same imperious tones which were pro-
nounced by the voice of the country a-
gainst the Mvonster and its Satellites,
will again be reiterated with double
force and ef'ect. The Monied Oligar-
chy must be put down, or our civil in-
stitutions will be at the mercy of their
WVe have no hereditary nobiilty-but
we have permitted a chartered class to
grow up among us, who assume and
possess greater privileges than the old
nobility of England. We have a class
who are invested with power to set a
value upon every man's property, and
to say that though to-day you may b
worth your thousands, to-morrow yo
shall be a beggar. The same class hav
power, when ever they choose to exet
cise it, to reduce the whole community
to bankruptcy, and of this terrific pow
er, we have now a sad example before
us. This same class has resolved tha
the public revenue shall not be collec
ed, and their behest is obeyed, the irr
porter cannot pay the duties on hi
merchandise, because this class has de
prived him of the means: and the Go
vernment itself cannot pay its creditor
for the same reason. The poor ma
cannot purchase bread for his children
with the wages of his labor, because th
chartered class has decreed that he shall
not. This chartered class may public
ly declare that they will not pay their
debts, avowing at the same time tha
they have the wherewithal to do it, an
they are so hedged in and guarded, tha
there is no possible means of coercin
them, and if a man dare to raise hi
voice against their iniquities, he doe
so at a risk which few are willing to in
cutr. The government is defied an
threatened by this chartered class; an
if a body of citizens, believing them
selves to be free, and impelled by wha
they conceive to be their duty, venture
to declare that the government and laws
established by their brave fathers sha'
not be assailed with impunity, an
pledge their lives in their defence, thes
rash and foolish citizens are told tha
they shall be dispersed by a military
force, and their leaders thrown into
dungeon. We are not in Manchester
or in Grand Cairo. Even in those c.
ties the people will not be rode dow

In one of the mining districts of Hun
gary, there lately occurred an incident
which, while it partakes largely of th
romantic, is of most affecting interest
and altogether of most extraordinary
and dramatic effect.
In opening a communication between
two mines, the corpse of a miner, ap
parently of about twenty years of age
was found in a situation which indicate
ed that he had perished by an accident
al falling in of the roof of the mine.-
The body was in a state of softness ans
pliability, the features fresh and undis
torted, and the whole body complete
preserved, as is supposed, from the im
pregnation with the vitriolic water o
the amine. xhen e.xpnad, the body be
came stiff, but the features and genera
air were not discomposed. The person
of the deceased was not recognized b
any one present, but an indistinct re
collection of the accident by which th.
sufferer had been thus engulphed in th
bowels of the earth more than half a cen
tury, was prolonged by tradition amonQ
the miners and the country people.-
Further inquiry was here dropped, an
the necessary arrangements were mad
to inter the body with the customer
rites of burial. At this moment, to thi
astonishment of all present, there sud
denly appeared a decreped old woman
of the neighboring village, who, sup
ported by crotches had left her bed-rid
den couch, to which infirmity had foi
some years confined her, and advance
to the scene with the feelings of joy, o
grief, and of anxiety, so intensely paint
ed on her aged face, as to give her thi
appearance of an inspired person, and
with an alacrity which seemed truly mi
raculous? The old woman gazed upon
the corpse for an instant, and sweeping
the long hair from its forehead, in or-
der to obtain a more perfect view of its
features, her countenance became as it
were supernaturally lighted up, and in
the midst of piercing hysteric cries and
sobs, she declared the body to be that
of a young man to whom she had been
engaged by the ties of mutual affection,
and the promise of marriage, more than
sixty years before. In the intervals ol
gushing floods of tears and fainting fits
of her exhausted frame, she poured out
thanks to Heaven that she had again
beheld the object of her earliest affec-
tions, and declared that she could now
descend to the tomb content. The
powers of life were now prostrated by
her agitated feelings and exertions, and
she was borne homeward by the villa-
gers; but ere she proceeded fart from
the object of her solicitude, she was in
a state to join him. Her spirit, as if'sa-
tisfied, had fled, and the affectionate pair
whom misfortune had rent asunder,
were now hushed in one grave.
attempted Murder and Determined
Suicide at Sea.-On Saturday last a
dreadful attempt to Murder Mr. Robert
Reid, the owner of the Schooner Boli-
var, (which arrived on Wednesday in
the London Dock, from Roscoe, in Brit-
tany, with a cargo of cork,) was made
by James Rider, the captain of the ves-
sel, who on the same day committed
suicide, by throwing himself overboard.
It appears from the statement of the
mate and crew, and the entry of thelog,
that the deceased was a very intempe-
rate man, and while the ship was at
Roscoe he drank large quantities of
brandy, which he procured ashore, and
when the schooner sailed he was al-
e most unable to direct the navigation of
u the vessel. The owner and mate took
e upon themselves the command, but as
r- the captain did not immediately display
y any symptoms of derangement, he was
v- allowed to act, and took the same
'e watches as the owner. The cravings
at of the captain for brandy were loud and
t- frequent, and as his system had become
a- used to the liquid, it was thought pru-
s dent by the owner to allow him a glass
e- occasionally. On Friday last he began
o- to talk in a very incoherent manner, and
's said he knew the owner and mate were
n going to murder him, and that the crew
n had been bribed not to divulge the plot
e Mr. Reid endeavored to pacify him,
II and directed Mr.' Buckingham, the
- mate, and all hands, to keep a watchfu
r eye on the captain, as it was feared that
.t he meditated some mischief. All hands
d on board used every effort to quiet the
it captain, but without success. He be.
g came very refrlactory, and said he had
s the horrors, through drinking so much
s brandy in France. The mate conversed
i- with him a short time, and assured himn
d that he would soon be well. The un
d fortunate man, however, was so strong.
i- ly impressed with the erroneous idea
at that the crew had a design upon his life
e that to quiet him a Bible was procured
s, at his request, and the form of an oathl
11 gone through by owner, mate, and sea
d men, who kissed the book, and declar.
e ed that they did not intend to do him a
it ny injury. Captain Rider after this be.
y came more calm and remained below,
a At midnight, when the watch was re.
r, lived, Mr. Reid went below, and turn.
i- ed into his berth in the cabin. The
n captain was in bed on the opposite side
i- of the cabin, and Mr. Reid was afmost
y asleep, when he was aroused by Mr. Ri.
- der, who got up, walked across the ca-
f- bin, and asked him to give him a glass
e of brandy, and while stooping, and in
e- the act of unlocking a drawer under the
e cabin table, the captain, who was stand.
ing by his side, stabbed him, by plung-
ing a sharp-pointed knife into the left
side of his neck. Mr. Reid called out,
"Murder, murder!" and the mate im-
- mediately jumped out of bed, and pre.
t, vented a second blow which was aimed
e at Mr. Reid from taking effect. Rider
t, then made a blow with the knife at the
y mate, who parried it, and after a severe
struggle with his captain, wrested the
n instrument from his hand, and secured
- him. The wound inflicted on the own-
, er was a very serious one; he bled pro-
t- fusely, and it was some time before the
- hemorrhage could be stopped. The
S' owner's wound having been dressed, two
d men were appointed to watch the cap-
s- tain, whose malady increased; and dur-
Y ing the whole of Friday night the men
I- had. great difficulty in preventing him
I from doing further violence. On Sa-
turday morning he began raving, and
1 said he was sure the vessel was haunted.
n For the purpose of undeceiving him he
y was allowed to go on deck for a short
'- time, and he returned to the cabin, and
e was more quiet. He begged of the
e owner and mate not to injure him, or
- let the crew kill him; and he was assur-
g ed that no harm should befall him ei-
- their on board or ashore; indeed, every
d means were used to compose him. In
e a subsequent part of the day he made
Y another attempt to murder the owner
e with a shut-handled knife he had se.
- created under his bed, and which he had
n drawn out unperceived. He was steal-
- ing quietly with the knife towards the
- owner's bed-place, and was about to
r plunge it in his belly, when one of the
d men caught his hand, and prevented
f him from carrying his intention into ef-
- fect. In the afternoon he was again al-
e lowed to go on deck, for the purpose of
I removing the impression from his mind
- that the ship was haunted. About 4
o'clock he went on deck a third time,
the mate and two men keeping close to
" him, and after some time he went down
s below again, with two men, the mate
t remaining on deck. Directly after-.
wards the mate jumped off a bundle of
corks, which were piled up a height of
t eight feet, and proceeded towards the
helm. The captain no sooner heard
this than he jumped up the companion,
and before the men could seize him
f threw himself overboard. The ship
was instantly put about for the purpose
of saving the captain; but, singularly e-
nough, this was no sooner done than the
wind died away, and it became quite
calm. The captain swam away from
the vessel, and an oar and a bundle of
corks were thrown towards him. He
then made towards the vessel, and the
crew were about to lower the long-boat,
but before this could be done the unfor-
tunate man sank, and was not seen a-
gain. The ship was about 30 miles
from the Start when the deceased threw
himself overboard. Mr. Reid, who still
remains in a very weak state, commu-
nicated the whole of the circumstances
connected with the unfortunate transac-
tion, to Mr. Ballantine, the Thames-po-
lice magistrate, and from the inquiries
made by the chief surveyor, under his
directions, it does not appear that any
blame can be attached to the people on
board the Bolivar, who used every ef-
fort to save the deceased. It is the opi-
nion of the crew that the captain would
have stabbed all hands if he had not
been secured by the mate. The deceas-
ed was a native of plymouth, where his
family are living. His madness is to
be attributed solely to the enormous
quantity of brandy he consumed while
in France; he was previously in the en-
joyment of good health, and much res-
f peeled by the owner and crew. Mr.
Reid had a narrow escape of his life,
the knife having penetrated to a consi-
derable depth close to the principal
5 MURDER.-It becomes our painful
I duty to give publicity to a murder under
e the most aggravated circumstances, as
. public journalists it has been our lot to
s record. The circumstances, as far as
I we have been able to learn them, are,
I that, on Friday night last, Mr. Kemper,
e (a blind man,) who resided a short dis-
v tance from the town, was awakened by
a blow, as he thought, struck across
the bed: hearing a groan in the yard in
the front of the house, his wife and him-
I self got up to ascertain the cause, they
t found the brother of Mr. Kemper (who
s was also blind) lying upon the ground
e apparently senseless; supposing him tc
- be in a fit, he was removed into the
I house; and Mrs. Kemper, with a young
i girl of fourteen, who, with the blind
I men, were the only inmates of the house,
were despatched to the neighbors it
. quest of aid. On their return, they
. found the elder Kemper lying across
the door of the house which had beer
, forced from its place, and the hinges
1 broken, senseless and badly beaten.-
On examination his skull was found to
- be fractured and otherwise injured, ap
- parently with blows of a heavy club.-
- He died in a few hours in consequence
- of the injuries he had received. The
younger brother, who was also badly
. beaten, is still living, although his re
- cover is doubtful. It is supposed tha
the assassins were led to the perpetra
e tion of this crime with the expectation
t of robbing them of a few hundred dol
. lars which they had recently became it
. possession of. All the money obtained
s however, was a few dollars which they
had in their pockets, the remainder be
ing deposited in other hands. Every
exertion is being made to ferret out tht
. wretches who, for the sake of one o0
t two hundred dollars, would cruelly
butcher two men who, from their in.
- firmity, ought to elicit the most heart-
felt sympathy. Two blacks apprehend-
ed on suspicion, but as yet no facts have
* transpired to throw much light upon
the subject.-Boon's Licking Democrat
We learn from a gentleman who left
Fayette on yesterday, that the two
blacks had confessed their guilt.-Edi.
* ors' Patriot,
S Snake Fight.-Startling Adventure.
-On Saturday last Mr. John Foster,
* who resides near the Washington Print
Works, in this town, discovered neat
his house a large black snake; he seized
a billet of wood and pursued him some
twenty yards, to near a small tree, when:
the serpent turned, raised himself in an
upright position, and prepared to act
upon the defensive. He threw the bil-
let of wood and missed him, whereupon
his snakeship came at him full tilt his
mouth thrown open, and with his fiery
eyes and forked tongue exhibiting all
the venom of his species. Mr. F. seiz-
ed a small stick, and as he came up
made a pass at him but he dodged it
and gave back. This repeated, several
times the snake all the time with his
eye steadily and piercingly fixed upon
that of Mr. F. After some two minutes
spent in this way the snake suddenly va-
nished, "and," says Mr. F. "as quick
as thought itself I beheld him upon the
limb of a tree, about ten feet above my
head, and in the very act of springing
upon me." The distance from the
ground to the extremity of the limb
where the serpent prepared for a leap,
could not have been less than from
twenty-five feet to thirty feet, and yet
Mr. F. had only time to change the di-
rection of his own eyes ere they met
the keen gaze of the serpent in his new
position. He then called to his bro-
ther to bring him a loaded gun, keeping
his eye upon the snake until he was shot
dead from the tree. Before they left
the spot still a larger one appeared,
much more venemous than the first, be-
ing determined to revenge the death of
its mate. This one they also killed; she
measured 5 feet 7 inches in length and
3s inches in diameter. The mate was
5 feet 2 inches long, and three inches in
diameter,-North River Times.
Murdering for .amusement.-A shock-
ing, singular and unaccountable mur-
der was committed upon the person of
a child of Mr. J. D. Brinker, living near
Massie's Iron Works, Franklin county,
Mo. on the afternoon of Sunday, the
14th ult. by a slave belonging to Mr.
Brinker, about 13 years of age. The
child, (about two years old,) was taken
by the girl to a small branch near the
dwelling house, and thrown into it.-
The girl, finding that the little victim
was likely to eseape by getting out of
the water, then jumped into it, and
struck it with a large billet of wood on
the side of the head. The blow killed
it immediately. Soon after the child
was missed, search was made, it was
found with its skull fractured in the
place stated. The girl was arrested,
and confessed the whole of the facts of
the murder. She at the same time
confessed the murder of a child of Mr.
Shirley last fall, by putting it into a
barrel placed in a spring, and drown-
ing it. When questioned as to why
she had murdered the child of Mr. Shir-
ley, she said "because the brat was al-
ways squalling, and it was such fun to
see it kicking at the fishes." With re-
gard to the last, she probably commit-,
I ted the act to keep her hand in, though
she declared she hated Mr. Brinker.-
She is described as a shrewd girl, re-
markably fond of children, and exhibit-
ed no fear or compunction at the mo-
ment of apprehension. The girl is in
jail at Potosi, Washington county, a-
waitiag her trial.
complaint is heard in consequence of the
present high price of flour in this vici-
nity. While the article is selling at a
short distance from the canal, for F6
and S7, we see no reason why the citi-
zens of Cleaveland should be taxed the
enormous sum of Ten dollars per bar-
rel! It is not owing to a scarcity here,
for there is an abundance in market;
but it is owing entirely and exclusively
to a wicked combination of speculators,
aided and assisted by Banks in mono-
polizing every barrel that arrives upon
the canal, thereby compelling the poor
man to come forward and pay them this
rascally price or suffer his children to
starve. How long are we to continue
thus to groan under the blighting and
withering grasp of monopolists and spe-
ANECDOTE.-The late John Ran-
dolph, of Roanoke, in the year 1813,
when the New York Banks suspended
specie payments, had a remittance of
some thousand dollars made him from
*England. The sum covered one of his
tobacco crops, and the funds were lock-
ed up in the vaults of the Bank ofAmer-'
ica. Mr. Randolph was at the time in
the prime of life, in the full enjoyment
of unequalled popularity. He repaired
to New York, and demanded his funds
in specie. It cannot be had, was the
prompt reply. "It must be had," was
the laconic response of Mr. Randolph.
The bank was incorrigible till the suc-
ceeding day, when the columns of the
New York Columbian announced by ad-
vertisement, that that afternoon at 2 o'-
clock, the Honorable John Randolph of
Roanoke, would address the people on
the subject of Banks, and the frauds
they committed, from the steps of the
Bank of America! It is scarcely ne-
cessary to say, that before the hour ar-
rived, every farthing demanded by Mr.
Randolph was paid over in specie.
FROM FLORIDA.-Official reports
to the 5th June have been received from
Tampa Bay. These reports state that
on the night of the 2d inst. the Micau-
saukies, about two hundred in number,
surrounded the camp of Micanopy,
Jumper and Cloud, and forced them a-
way. The orders from Sam Jones and
Osceola were not to molest any white
man. Micanopy refused to go, saying
that he had signed a treaty, and should
hold to it. He was answered that if he
did not go his blood would be spilt.-
His reply was to kill him there, and to
do it quickly; they, however, forced him
on his horse, and carried him off.-
Jumper having sold all his horses, they
forced him to walk. The sincerity of
Micanopy and Jumper cannot be doubt-
ed. Cloud, however, was always a
traitor, and was the only one who had
been warned of what was to take place.
Gen, Jesup states the scheme of emi-
gration has entirely failed, and that he
shall immediately discharge the vessels
which had been employed to carry the
Indians off. He does not anticipate a
renewal of hostilities. Measures have
been taken to place the troops in posi-
tions so as to cover the country.-Globe.
SINGULAR AcCIDENT.-Mr. Lyman
Joy narrowly escaped instant death in
this town last Tuesday. He was incau-
tiously handling a loaded pistol, with
the muzzle directed toward his face,
when it exploded. The ball fractured
the nose, and in its progress split open,
half of which was extracted and the o-
ther remains imbedded in his head. A
medical friend says "the ball entered at
the apex of the nose, leaving a perfora-
tion much smaller than its size would
have indicated, and striking obliquely
the edge of the right superior maxillary
bone, was severed in two as smoothly
as if by some sharp cutting instrument!
OneLhalf thus divided, being discover-
ed by the probe lying upon the surface
of the maxillary bone just below the or-
bit, was cut down upon and extracted.
The remaining half passed into the
right nostril, detaching in part the right
spongy bones, and lies too deep to be
discovered. We are happy to learn
that Mr. Joy is doing well, and that ve-
ry little doubt is entertained but he will
speedily recover."-Northampton Cou-
