Fellow-Citizens :-We are called together by
an event, for which, in all the circumstances that
attended it, you may scarcely find a 'parallel in
the long series of alternate judgments and bles-
sings, that furnish the matter of the history of
the world. Our civil father is dead! In such
an hour, when success from his last contest was
just-attained, when party strifes were subsiding
to rest, and the people of Ainerica, returning to
the generosity of their nature, had united to pre-
dict for limn the fame of Waslhington ; just then,
when warm affections were breathing from so
many millions of hearts; just then, when all
stood fixed to hear from the eloquence and ex-
perience of those lips, the holy, wise and beauti-
ful things that pertain to the institutions of our
country ; just then, lie was stricken from among
us ;--he has gone to the desolate places, where
the kings and counsellors of Ihc earth rest at
length together.
How strange is the contrast a moment pre-
sents! So strange that the mind vainly strives
to appreciate its reality. It is only just now, it
seems indeed but yesterday, since some of you
saw him stand up,-that firm, wise and kind ,*.1
mian-the snows of three score winters on 1.-
lhead,-but with his eye undimmed and his voice
unbroken,--that voice so often heard amid the
clamor of thit battle-and min the presence of a
not inadequate representation of all that is hon-
orable and respectable in the land ; ofthejudges,
of the clergy, of the foreign ministers, of the
strength and intelligence of the country, of men
and women, hanging by thousands and tens of
thousands, with pride, svympathy and love, on
every word of thle mani of the people's choice ;-

Where is it now, the glory and the dream ?
Our nation has been called to mourn before,
for the good, the wise, tlhe valiant, its founders
and benefactors, those who have triumphed in
hundreds of victories, in peace and war. It //'
not now the first time that our people have ii.
terrupted their employment, have left the ship
half loaded, the contract unfinished, and the
plough in the partly broken furrow, and come to-
gether to exchange their sympathies on the oc-
casion of a public bereavement. But there is
something in the circumstances of this bereave-
mnient which gives it a pathos all its own. Oth-
ers have died when the measure of their glory
was full ; when the circle of office was all
run through ; in the bosom of a retirement to
which the prayers of their countrymen had at-
tended thliemi ; full of years, full of fame, the festi-
val of life complete. No duty undischarged, no
promise unperformed, no wish ungratified, they
went down, like the sun at the close of a bright
sumner's day into a grave, wider thIan the sea, a
tomb wider tlian the whole earth. So died Ad-
ams, Jefferson, Madisin and Monroe ; so died
Lafayette; Washington so died ; their death was
mourned, but our sorrow was so mitigated, so re-
lieved by the sublimity of the circumstances, the
time of their death was so seasonable not only
for us but for them, that we mourned indeed, but
with a pleasant delicious exultation that time
and chance had no more power over them be-
yond their grave. We could not expect for them
a permanence of mortality. Hail and farewell,
good arid faithful servants, for whom it seems
there is no more to do! Your own monuments
you have yourselves completely built.
To-day miy friends we mourn over unfinished la-
bors, over unperfected famre. Although the name
of him we have lost shone always brightly, and
a long life was spent in the service of his coun-
try, we deplore him as We Would the enthusias-
tic youth who had sunk to an early grave.
I know very well that his accession to office
was resisted. Thousands of his countrymen-
some of you-participated in the resistance, and
yet when the strife was over, and the will of the
majority was constitutionally proclaimed, when
the voice of his country, with that authority at
whose sacred call hlie had so often leapt to armsnna,
had bidden him come forth front his plain old
forest home, from his books, from his farm, from
the bright Ohio-gliding away like his own life,
pure, majestic and serene-from the wife of his
bosom, his dear and aged wife, not yet, thank
God, wholly houseless and homeless, on whose
sorrow we will not intrude; had bidden him come
away and ascend to the high places of his coun-
try's pride, there to put forth the mild energies,
the incorruptible integrity of his character ; to
calrn down the passions of his countrymen ; to
restrain the intemperance of a majority reeking
from recent victory ; to protect and reconcile the
minority; to execute the laws so that justice
might be seasoned by mercy ; to reform what
was wrong, if wrong there were ; to give us back
the liberty that we love, and to secure to labor
its daily bread ; and when obedient to that call
you saw him go forth to accept that trust, there
was no one that bore a true American heart who
did not bid the brave and good old man God-
speed !-not one, who did not fervently desire
for him a full and fair opportunity to realize the
hopes of his friends, the demands of his country,
and the aspirations of Ins patriotismn; not one
who does not mourn, as you mourn to-day, that
lie has fallen so prematurely for himself, so pre-
maturely for us all.
And yet, my friends, we must not suffer the
sharpnesss of this recent sorrow to make us un-
reasonable or unjust. We must not defraud him
there in his narrow dwelling, of so much as a
ray of his already appropriated fame, because lie
did not live to acquire the exceeding praise we
had anticipated for him. It seems rather to be
the duty of the occasion, as it certainly was its
object, to soothe the violence of our grief by the
recollection of the actual life of the departed, as
shown to the country and the world. This is the
only way to treat the occasion justly ; thus alone
do we gain from it its whole lesson. We do not
honor him, we do not benefit ourselves, by impa-
tient regrets that he can serve us no longer ; but
rather by a heartfelt gratitude that he has served
us so long. We should rather repeat to ourselves
the history of his life, crowded with the events o0

seventy years, and gather up with fond hands,
and piius solicitude, the good, the useful, the
grand traits of his character and mind, as that
life had brought them out, and engraved them
upon our hearts, as with a pen of steel upon the
great pyramid fronting the rising sun.
Who needs to be reminded of the story of that
life ? You all are fiaminliar even with its particu-
lars : with his achievements in the council and
the field; with his family ties; with his primi-
tive habitation on the Ohio; even with the lines
of his countenance, not, as you see, [Here Mr
Choate turned and pointed to the portrait of Pre.
sident Harrison, by Hoyt, which hung over thke
r..struiu,] untouehe,.d by care, and lb,,r, and time ;

er every day, to weave a garland for his lIving
temples; since tihe press teemed with his story,
and music and song were bearing his name and
praises on every wind and to every air, till the
nation had them by heart.
It is not therefore necessary to go into any de-
tails as to his career or character. 1 need only to
call to mind their more general features. In at-
tempting this, I Would not be understood to in-
tend by any praise I may bestow on him, to re-
flect on any other men, or on the personal or
technical creed of policy of any party. I earn.
estly pray that I may not be so interpreted, It
would be unjust to you who have united to-day
without distinction of party for these services of
national sorrow. It would be worse. It would
be to disregard one of thie great lessons of this
calamity itself. For does it teach no great les-
son ? Who can tell that it is not intended that
the zeal with which high office is sought, shall
be moderated by this picture of the sudden death
of a great statesman on tle attainment of the
summit of ambition ; b) Iringing into such sud-
den and startling contrast the two great proces-
sions, the inauguration and the funeral. i*The
marching with the pomip of more than a corona-
lion, to set more than a diademaon his brow ;
while his bosom was swelling, and his eye kind-
ling with pride, and hope and affection. The
other winding slowly and sadly like yours to-dc',
to lay down the cold lips and prostrate form in
the silent grave. Who can say that this great
calamity was not intended to soften the asperi-
ties of party strife, to arouse a momentary tend-
erness, and to reconcile estranged brethren, by
bringing us together around the death bed of our
departed leader. Let the services of this day
not weaken, ait least, so desirable an impression.
I may confess that when, a week ago, I began
to re-read the life of our departed President, and
to attempt to form a clear re-judgment of his ser-
vices, it was with some &.gree of silent solicitude,
lest the circumstanees.fthe recent contestshould
have combined to bestow upon him, in the general
eye, a character above his own, which might now
prove to be factitious. I almost feared that it
might prove, that our tumultuous desires, our
passions and fancies, might have imposed upon
us a man not quite worthy to continue the star-
bright roll of imperishable names, which is open-

and take away.
I rejoice that I now know him better That
whidhi I have learned of him makes me love and

.' r.:- not deceived ; you did well and wisely to
,her around him, from the north to the south,
from the farthest east to the setting sun, from the
plantation and the prairie, from the workshop
and the farm ; to commit to his mild and sure
virtues, his ample capacities, his enlarged expe-
rience, the care of the best interests of our social
life. You do well to mourn for him as lie passes a-
way. Not one hope but was just, not one expec-
tation but was founded in the history of the past.
A vast influence for good has passed forever a-
The two points of view under which I shall
particularly contemplate President Harrison, are
these : first, that all his life long he was eminent-
ly afbrtunate man; and secondly,thathe deserved
to be so, from the qualities of his mind and heart,
from the useful aan oceasionally brilliant course
of his public life. His father's name is engraved
indelibly in the memories of his country. He
himself was born on the soil and trained in the
classical seltool& of Virginia-mother ot great
men, and yet not vain glorios of herjewels !-
His first experience of battle was on the Miamis in
1794, at the age of 21, where hlie bore through ev-
ery part of the field amidst the fire of a thousand
rifles, the orders for Wayne the -bravest of the
brave, that secured the victory. Here Wayne
obtained a cone(usest, which more even than that
of Yorktown determined our national independ-
ence. In the next year the young soldier settled
in the country which hlie had aided to liberate-
and for forty years of peace and war, in public
life and in retirement, in long gradation he grew
with the growth and strengthened with the
strength of the free and imperial Northwest, till
at last she presented hint to the people ot Ameri-
ca, completely worthy to fill the foremost place
of all the world.
His course was identified .-iihi the fortunes of
the West. This was, I think, the key to the
paramount felicity of his public life. He was her
adopted son, and she loved him aw her own. It
was her children always whom he led to victory.
It was from her advancing cabins, from her lux-
uriant cornfields, and primeval forests, that he
turned back the fi-ry tide ofrIndian war. It was
in the administration of her civil affairs that he
acquired the capacity and experience that fitted
him for the grand trusts of his closing life. For
half century, by partaking and reciproc-iting
her boundless hospitalities. by watching in thie
field so many nights while her women & children
were sleeping in aafetl ; by reptMlling so many in-
cursions of ier savage foe ; by assisting to frame
the laws of her soil under which she has grown
up, and the institutions under which commerce
has covered her rivers, before bearing only the
light canoe" uid the newly fallen leaves of au-
tumn ; by embodying the perfection of the local
character, its self devotion, large heart, its firm-
ness ; he won that love which brought out at the
last election her enthusiastic support, which on
this day of grief will carry her fair daughters to
smooth the lonely pillow of that aged widow,
and would make half a million of swords leap
from their scabbards to avenge a word or a look
that threatened his memory with insult.
It will be enough to refer to two incidents of
his life, either of which would entitle him forev-
er to the grateful honors of his coiuntrymen -
The first of these was the victory over the Indian
Prophet in 1811, the most desperate in the annals
of Indian war. I say nothing if the ntlitary
skill displayed in the action. It was ihe splen-
did usefulness of the victory which gave it all its
value ; which most eahibti. the characteristic fe-
licity of the soldier who wrn il. It seems to be
now plain, that between liO6 anil 1i81, the Pro-
phet and hms much t.ire reirarkable and interest-
ing brother, Tecumseh, had formed ihe design of
i nistling and uniting into a great confederacy
ilie entire atbormgmnal race T.o whal-extent ihey
had hoped to wage successful war against the
States, is not so easy to perceive Perhaps in
the gloomy recess-s of their minds which, altho'
o.'t uiifurnished i ith a certain native sublirnity
of soul, were not without their deep caves of re-
venge ; stung by their tradilonary and indispu-
table wrong, recalling the days oftheir fabulous
glory, and marking Iov high ant lhr how 'lng

the tide of civilization had advanced till it was
breaking around their own dwellings; perhaps,
when they listened to the watch-fire song of war,
to the dismal roar of the pines, or the solemn fall
of the distant river, near which their rugged in-
fancy had played, but from which their old age
might be removed ; and thought of these things
till the dread of the spirits of their fathers arous-
ed the boiling tide of hate and the thirst for ven-
geanoe ; perhaps Tecumseh, and certainly his
more imaginative brother, conceived the plan of
restoring the whole country to its original pos-
Certain it is that they planned a union of the
entire tribes from the frontier to the Gulf of Mexi-
co, and that by the year 1811 they had brought it to
the verge of consummation. Certain it is also
that if the design had been effected, taken in
connection with the war with England, it would
have environed our whole frontier with a circle
of firit; would have turned those gardens of the
earth into dark and bloody wildernesses; and
the strength which would have been insufficient
for permanent re-conquest, might not have been
insufficient for temporary and terrible devasta-
tion. The dark dream of the Indian Hunter at
the tomb of his fathers might have been accom-
plished ;-
"But I behold a fearful sign,
To-which the white man's eyes are blind;
Their race may vanish hence like mine,
And leave no trace behind,
Save ruins o'er the region spread,
And the white stones above the dead."
Gen. Harrison, as Governor of the Northwest
Territory, detected and defeated this act of du-
plicity. And I rejoice more than all, now that
he is gone to stand for judgment before the fath-
er of the Indian and the white man, that the lau-
rels he thus acquired were unstained. His
whole life was unstained by a single act of cru-
elty against those races. Conducting as he dd
the entire intercourse between the Government
and the Indians, he committed no act authorized
or unauthorized which violated his faith with the
latter; and I rejoice that he so administered that
trust, so parentally, so compassionately and so
justly urged peace, and so temperately followed
up his victory,that to day as the tidings of his
death are borne across the ocean forests of the
west, the warriors of a hundred races shall
mourn with us for their father and for ours.
The other act to which I allude was of a dif-
ferent nature; the maturing of the system of
sales of the public lands, which has contributed
so much more than all things else, to the magi-
cal but healthful growth of all that great region.
In 1799, when he entered Congress, the system
which obtained was to confine sales of lands to
large tracts of 4000 acres or more. The effect
was to place them beyond the reach of the actu-
al emigrant desiring to settle, and in the hands
of capitalists of whom he must buy or hire. It
was the first act of the youthful delegate, whose
eye took in at a glance the vast interests of the
West, to propose a change of policy, by reduc-
ing thWsinimum to 320 acres, just an industri-
ous poor man's farm. This became the basis of
the law which has since planted the West.-
Where in history, will you find a parallel to this?
The law giver is now in his grave. But go back
to thitime when, forty years ago, he trembled
before the statesmen of that Congress, with his
new plan for settling the West, and ask your-
selves what that West was then. It now conm-
prises four States, two Territories, and three
millions of Inhabitants. Let me unrol to you
the picture of it as it existed then, as painted by
the hand of a master;-
"Over all that space, there then stretched one
vast wilderness, unbroken, except by four small
spots of civilized culture, at Marietta, Cincin-
nati, Detroit and'Vincennes. At these little o-
penings, hardly each a pinm's point on the map,
the arm of the frontier-man had levelled the
forest and let in the sun. These little patches
of earth, and themselves almost overshadowed
by the overhanging boughs of that wilderness,
which had stood and perpetuated itself from cen-
turyto century, ever since the creation, were
all that had then been rendered verdant by the
hand of man. In an extent of hundreds and
thuwadq nrf r-lp *mi4w nwl, r jlrfie or
smiling green allest.-d tire el em i&a,-
tion. Tlie hunter's path *rosseid nimghty rivers,
flowing in solitary grandeur, whose sources lay
in remote nd tmunknown regions of the wilder-
ness. It struck, upon the north, on a vast in-
land sea, over which the wintry tempests raged
as on the ocean; all ground was bare creation.
It was fresh, untouched, unbounded, magnifi-
cent wilderness." And what is it now ? Let
us look at the picture of its present condition,
as drawn by another artist:
,Look now abroad-another race has filled
These populous borders-wide the wood recedes,
And towns shoot up, and fertile realms are tilled;
The land is full of harvests and green meads;
Streams numberless, that many a fountain feeds,
Shine, diseinmbowered, and give to sun and breeze
Their virgin waters : the full region leads
New colonies forth, that toward the western seas
Spread, like a rapid flame among the autumnal
Here the free spirit of mankind at length,
Throws its last fetters off; and who shall place
A limit to the giant's enchained strength,
Or curb his swiftness in the forward race ?
Par, like the comet's way through infinite space,
Stretches the long untravelled path of light
Into the depth of ages ; we may trace,
Distant, the brightening glory of its flight,
Till the receding rays are lost to human sight."
Such was the-west! Such is the west! his
home, his pride, and wheresoever his ashes shall
lie-his MOSUMENT. I have spoken of the felici-
ty, of the fortunate career of Harrison. To
complete the circle, you would expect me of
course, to except the history of his recent de-
'parture Is it not a crowning goodness that he
died as just now you saw him die,-in the full
and fresh fruition of that fame, of the extent of
which lie had just been made so vividly con-
scious by the scenes of the inauguration. Before
one leaf of that transcendent garland had fallen,
before he had had one hour's experience of the
difficulty of doing right, of the fickleness of
friends, and the harshness of opponents, the sel-
fishness of those who were seeking office and
the rancor of those who had left it ;-the hopes
of all our countrymen still resting upon him, tle
music of that Iriumphans march sill falling
upon his ear: bhfire ,pn- I.ght was dim, or
one guest departed, tle great preparation we
may trust. seasonably made, well night he com-
mit the constitution and country to his succes-
sor ;-extend Iis hiid to the urn and draw out
the lot appointed to all. Nipoloiii went back on
his death bed to the field of battle; the last
thought of the patriot President was on the wel-
fare of his country. The cares of state are over
for him
-- --.-"he sleeps well
nor steel, nor poison,
Mnale domestic, foreign levy, nothing
Can touch him farther."
I shall not speak at large of the character of
Harrison, and there is no need that I should do
so, displayed, as it has been, in every variety of
life by the diversified requisitions of forty or fif-
ty years ; probed and laid bare as it has been by
tlie tremendous ordeal which every candidate
for the Presidency must here pass through; a
character too, remarkably accessible and trans-
parent. You know it, the people know it all.-
What need, here and now, to tell you of the

courage, tested midst the flashing fury of mid.
night warfare; or the military skill that won
laurels in the fields, in the face of the iron disci-
pline of one foe, and the stealthy craft of anoth-
er ; of the broad sound sense, the universal dis-
cretion, that true Washingtonian trait; of the
honesty, no more to be corrupted, no more to be
assailed, than the sun in his course of glory-
that grand charm by which lie won all hearts,
on which the universal masses reposed so im-
plicitly, and from which they cp.cted so much;
.f that tolerance : ind juaticc, which made himl
target, alter his triuiiilhi, which was the party
,hiuch elected himn of that genuine American
feeling, which gave us the assurance of an ad-
ministration that should recognize no distinction
of the opposite sides of the Alleghanies, and of
Mason's'and Dixon's line ; of the true republi-
canism of his politics-not the mepublicanilsm of
this man or that, but of the constitution-prom-
ising a government of laws and not of .men,
promising us a republican govi-rnmient, for which

I have sometimes thought his own old house at
North Bend, the Doric of the forest, formed no
unapt representation ; that house not unvisited
by storms, and yet not tailing-inundated but
not destroyed ; all within well ordered and ad-
ministered by a mild parental authority, the
home ot true affections, strong arms, and high
thoughts, nourished by the wisdom of the past,
by the contemplation of the grandeur and beau-
ty of nature herself, the forest, the river, and
the bright firmament of the stars.
In looking over the history of his life more
carefully, to form an estimate of the aggregate
of his character, I venture to think, that while
through his life he displayed the requisite capac-
ity for the formation and administration of laws,
or whatever public duty was required of him, it
was the warm, pure and great heart that attract-
ed and retained for him the love of his country-
men. He should be remembered-and we will
speak of him to our children as the GooD Presi-
dent; homely as that epithet may appear, how
much more has it of real significance than the
imperial title 'great' so often given to men who
have waded through blood to thrones. I need
give but two anecdotes to illustrate this trait in
his disposition. He pardoned the negro who
sought his life, and rescued him, by his own so-
licitation, when fastened to the stake for military
punishment. He recovered heavy damages by a
verdict in a ease for slander, and then divided
the money received, among the children of the
slanderer, and the orphan children of some of
his old soldiers. Although lie was hospitable be-
yond the usual hospitality of the West, it was
always the remnant of the armies of Harmar
and St Clair that found the warmest welcome at
his ever ready board. When the ear heard him,
it blessed him; when the eye saw him, it gave
witness to him ; because lie delivered the poor
that cried, and the fatherless and him that had
none to help him. Consider then, that combin-
ed benevolence and integri,, worthy the ac-
counts of Grecian and Roman fame, to which
he was not ashamed sometimes to turn his at-
tention backwards; behold him tried by the
temptation of an office, from which he might
have amassed a princely fortune, and with the
conscientious honor of a Washington retiring
from it poor, and you will feel and see in a mo-
ment what it was that impelled towards him the
love of a people. Thi country had been long
unprosperous, from causes into which we need
not inquire. We were laboring the live-long
day, and feeling as we lay down at night, that
we were growing poorer and poorer. The people
were puzzled with various theories and argu-
ments. They were growing more and more dis-
trustful with all mere great talent. There grew
up a wide and irrepressible craving in the public
heart, for an honest man from among themselves,
to preside over their affairs, and help them back-
ward to the glories of their fathers' days. Then
it was that they turned to Irim. Be this the les-
son of his life. Be tins his eulogy. That
not for descent from an exalted line ; not for his
military victories; not for his dexterity in the
partizanship of professional politics, was he
chosen to relieve and reform the land; but
because lie was a good and just man, fearing
God and loving his country.
And now that hlie has been called to go hence,
and leave the high trust which had been com-
mitted to him, how impressive is that sublime
and shadowy orientalism which he is said to
have repeated a few days before his death, which
seemed to predict the awful lesson, which has
now been given from the month which has pass-
ed to the months which are to come-
"Watchman, what of the night? Watchman,
what of the night?'
"Thie watchlian said, the morning cometh,
and also the night: if ye will inquire, inquire
ye, return, come."
Happy if this dreary eclipse in so splendid a
morning, should inspire such inquiries in all our
statesmen, should change the ambition of public
men, should admonish them that all the ends
they aim at should be their country's and their
God's. Happy if it should sink deep and lie
)ong in the heart of the great mass of the peo-
ple, on whom directly this affliction is to fall,
repr.-,.-i,, if it may be, the mean selfishness of

though its forward to that tribunal at which not
rulers only, but nations themselves must one
flay stand. There are times and senses, in which
|t may be true of a nation as well as of a man,
that it is good to be afflicted. Who knows how

The Funeral solemnities in Philadelphia on
Tuesday were, says the U. S. Gazette, deeply
impressive in their character.
The voice of partizan triumph was hushed-
the forwardness of partizan action was unobserv-
eid-the thousands that went up to the solemni-
ty, marked with tokens of public mourning on
their dress, and the signs of private sorrow on
their face, were composed of men of all parties
*nd creeds, who felt that a common calamity
obliterated the line of party demarkation, and in-
vited them as Americans and as patriots to unite
fn the evidences of grief for one in whose death
khe nation had experienced a common loss.
Among the preparations for the great ceremo-
tials of yesterday, was the enshrouding of the
wo Council Chambers of the City with black.-
The colored window curtains were all removed,
. nd their place supplied with black stuffs, put up
vith great taste. In the Select Council chamber,
Jhe wall opposite the windows was hung with black
loth. The desks of the President and of the Clerks
vere covered with black, and the chandeliers
tnd burners trinmned with crape. The Hall of
jnde'peinrlence was also hung in black. As
.hirst _'hliurch had been designated by the Right
tevierrend Dr Onderdonk for the services, care
VaS ikt. n to have that ancient and venerable
hidingg suitably hung. Thme galleries were fes-
tooned with wide cloth. In the front of the or-
gan the curtains were of black. The pulpit was
entirely covered with black. The railings of the
actuaryy were similarly covered, and ftstoons
'f black cloth extended over the pulpit.
Many of the stores, in different parts of the
t:ity, were hung from roof to pavement in mourn-
lng. The apparatus and houses of most of the
iire department, were likewise appropriately a-
)lorned ; and most of the people who walked the
streets during the day, displayed some badge of
mnourning. The procession was immense, and
Occupied full three hours in passing.
The Marshals, as well the Chief, Joseph R.
Ingersoll, Esq. as his numerous assistants, were
stressed in black. They wore on their hats long
maode bands, with crape upon the left arm, and
each carried a white baton or truncheon, trim-
med at each end with black mode. Tlie aids to
the Chief Marshal were white rosettes, with white

rosettes pendant. All of the Marshals wore white
The solemnity of the services of the sanctuary,
the impressiveness and excellence of the sermon,
and the excellence of the music, gave to the por-
tion of the day's exercises that was in the church,
a character which will cause all of it to be long
remembered by those who were present.

Agreeably to a resolution passed by a meeting

From the .Tational Intelligencer.
A personal friend of the late President, shock-
ed, as every body must be, at an atrocious publi-
cation in the Globe newspaper, respecting the
death bed of the lamented HAnRISON, has conde-
scended to notice and reprobate it in the annexed
article. We should have thought, until we saw
the Globe of Thursday evening, that party feroc-
ity would have relented on approaching a scene
hallowed by the regrets of a whole nation, and
would not have dared so revolting an outrage on
truth and decency.
In the leading editorial article of the Globe of
the 15th inst., among many other gross and wick-
ed untruths, is the following shocking falsifica-
tion of the death-bed scene of General Har-
"The scene of his death-bed, however, show-
ed, in the most affecting manner, the state of his
feelings in regard to the matter that had engross-
ed them from the moment he had entered office.
From persons who nursed and watched by him,
it is known that whenever his mind began to
wander, lie gave utterance to the secret thoughts
)hat oppressed him ; and he continually recurred
to the distressing scenes he had recently passed
through. Sometimes hlie would say, IMy dear
madam, Idid not direct that your husband should be,
turned out. I did not know it. I tried to prevent it.'
On other occasions hlie would say, in broken sen-
tences-' It is wrong-I won't consent-'tis un-
just.' Again: These applications, will they
never cease?' From different and unquestion-
able sources, we are informed that the malady of
his heart, which broke out into expression in his
partial delirium, or when his mind was abstract-
ed in a sort of slumber, halt awakened by hIis an-
guish, constantly manifested itself by uttering
some snatches of sentenees like those we have

dMTged in (lie '.rM'ial abuse of Gen. Harrison,
published against him while living, there can be
no excuse of, or palliation for, such gross inven-
tions as these after he is dead. What is here
said is not only not true, but not even approxi-
mating a truth ; and all these sayings imputed to
Gen. Harrison, are the malicious inventions of
the writer for the Globe.
The Globe is again guilty of a gross untruth
in saying that as to removals from office, Gen.
Harrison's Cabinet differed in opinion from the
President by a vote of four for removals, and two
against, and that this majority voted down the
President. This mis all sheer invention, for it was
not only impossible to remove executive officers
without the President's consent, but Gen. Harri-
son presided over and directed every Cabinet
meeting. The firstremoval made which settled
the principle of action, was that of the Collector
of New York, in which President Harrison con-
curred with every member of his Cabinet.
The utmost union and harmony existed be-
tween General Harrison and his Cabinet, not-
withstanding all the Globe insinuates to the con-
trary. The General expressed to his friends re-
peatedly his gratification that lie had been able
to rally around him so able and united a body of
constitutional advisers.
The attempt of the Globe to extol Gen. Harri-
son dead, after its innumerable personal attacks
made upon him as a citizen, as a soldier, as a
statesman, will pass for what it is worth ; but the
assertion there that he intended to keep Ins
friends proscribed by keeping in office the men
who for twelve years had monopolized all the
honors and emoluments of thIe country, who were
to have nothing, while his enemies had every
thingor that he intended to sanction, by a con-
tinuance in office, the conduct of the men who
had prostituted the power and purse of their pla-
ces to keep their monopoly up, is all pure fiction,
which hlie himself pronounced so in the many re-
movals he himself made and was making up to
the hour of his illness.
I took my pen, however, not to discuss a prin-
ciple, but to express my abhorrence of the con-
duct of an editor who was not satisfied with rep-
resenting a great and good man, while alive, as
in a cage,' under keepers,' gabbling to the
geese and turkeys of the North Bend, but who
now makes and invents scenes' for his death-
bed shockingly false. To prey upon the living
may be in an eagle's sphere, but to prey upon
the dead is for the vampire or the worm.

the father of the President, and Benjamin Harri-
son, the father of the late President, were both
leading revolutionary characters in Virginia.-
In 1781, the former succeeded the latter as
Speaker of the House of Delegates. Subsequent-
ly Mr Harrison was chosen Governor of the
State, and was succeeded, after an interval, by
Mr Tyler, senior. Consequently both father and
son have filled the Executive chair of Virginia.
After being Governor, Mr Tyler, senior, was
Judge of the District Court of the United Stat.s
for Virginia, and died at his seat in Charles
county, January 6th, 1813. He was simple in
his manners, distinguished for the uprightness
and fidelity with which lie discharged his official
duties, and enjoyed in an uncomnson degree the
esteem and confidence of his fellow citizens.
* It is a singular circumstance that President
Tyler's father should have succeeded President
Harrison's father in the office of Speaker of the
House of Delegates in Virginia, and that his son
President Tyler, should succeed the son of Ben-
jamin Harrison in the office of Chist Magistrate
of tIe nation.

We hope that none of our readers will overlook
the advertisement of this most valuable and in-
teresting lecture in our columns of to-day. The
subject it treats is one of the brilliant and won-
derful discoveries of modern science, and no im-
agination can predict the effects which may here-
after be produced by the mysterious and almost'
supernatural agent, which, so far as it is yet de-I
tected and explored, Mr Abbot will explain and
illustrate. We understand that his oral exposi-
tions, and his splendid experiments, render the
subject clear and intelligible, as well as interest-
ing equally to the youngest, and the most learn-
ed of hearers. Mr Abbot is a gentleman of un-
questionable scientific attainments, and worthy
of the confidence of all who may seek to under-
stand the new and marvellous, and brilliant agent,
whose laws and powers he professes to expound
and exhibit. The curiosity which is felt by all
persons of intelligence, in reference to the appli-
cation of electro-minagnetism to the purpose of the
telegraphic transmission ofinformation,will itself,
we cannot doubt, attract a full audience to this

SNOW IN APRIL. On the 17th of April 1821,a
snow storm commenced which left the snow so
deep that teams of oxen, with a snow plough;,
were used to break out a path in Ipswich for the
Supreme Court to get into the Court House.-
The storm was so violent as to prevent a quorum
of the members of the Massachusetts Legislature
from assembling on that day.
In 182S3, it commenced snowing on the 30th of
March and ended on the 31st. Snow banks 14
feet deep were standing between Salem and
Marblehead and no mails passed. On the first
of April most of the snow remained on the
ground. That was the sixth snow storm since
the beginning of March of that year.

Nothing has occurred in the civil movements
of our country, which reflects more honor upon
the framers of our Constitution, than the quiet
and perfect workings of its machinery at this
important period.
In any of the new republics of South Amier-
ica, the death of a Chief Magistrate would
have occasioned an immediate disturbance, or at
least distrust Not so within us. Under a sudden
shock-in the midst of universal sensibilities-
the next in order by the constitution quietly
takes the place which the LAW assigns him-is
sworn into office-retains the same cabinet-an-
nounces the same measures-and all things on
on as they wonhl have done in the life of tie
honored dead. The. nation, trained to the move-
ments of law, and the knowledge of its duties,
nioves quietly and peacefully on, with sublime
confidence in its own powers, and in high and
reverend respect for its own institutions. It
pays real, deep-felt, and spontaneous honor to
its illustrious dead, and then goes calmly and
nobly on in the path of its republican duty, arid
its national greatness.
The nations of the earth may look on and
learn in this great lesson, that our Republic is
impregnable. Time may weaken it with the
canker of human corruption, but not until its
people cease to be virtuous will its laws cease to
be stable. [Cincinnati Cliron.

perpetrated in Cincinnati. Some time in the end

Arrival of ir Sparks. Among the passen-
gers in the steam ship Columbia, recently ar-
rived in this port, was our countryman, Mr
Sparks, the principal object of whose voyage to
Europe was to procure original materials, relat-
ing to the history of America. We understand
that his success has more than answered his ex-
pectations. lie has been absent nearly ten
months, and during that time he has been con-
stantly employed in making researches in the
public offices and libraries of England and
France. By the courtesy of the Governments
of both those countries, Mr S. has been allowed
freely to examine the manuscripts in tHe differ-
ent departments, which relate to the history of
America, and to have copies taken of all such
papers as were deemed by him important in
their historical character. His inquiries have
been principally devoted to the period of the
Revolution; but he has likewise taken much
pains to ascertain the original sources of Amer-
ican IliItory previously to that period. We are
glad to learn that these are numerous "and well
,reserved. From the public archives, as well
as from the British Museum, and the Royal Li-
brary in Paris, he lias procured copies of sonse
curious and highly interesting manuscripts rela-

a former occasion Mr S was engaged abroad
more than a year in the same pursuits, The re-

ter at the Court of St Jiimes. In reference to
this declaration the London Times makes the
statement following :
We are anxious to enforce the expediency of
getting at the truth of a rumor which has been
accredited in the best informed circles, and' of
which we see no reason to doubt the truth--
namely, that within a day or two after Lord
Pahinrston assured the House of Commons that
lie had, three years ago, informed Mr Steven-
son of the British Government having sanction-
ed the destruction of the Caroline, the American

Minister, Mr Stevenson, addressed himself by
note or words to the British Foreign Secretary,
positively alleging that his Lordship had stated
what was not the fact, for that the American
Government had never yet had such a comnmu-
nication from any official functionary of Great
Britain. The whole corps diplomatique now in
London, have, we understand, been fully ap-
prised of this matter, which reflects gravely up-
on the character of a British S.. ietairy of

ANOTniER OVEniit.ULIxU.-Capt. Wyse, of the
Leoiidas, at Baltimore, from Rio de .l.tio, n
ports that on the 16th of March, in i ':i It ,
Ion. 35 47 W., lie was fired into, and brought to,
by the British sloop of war Rose ; the boat sent
on board, the papers demanded and examined,
under the plea of supposition that she was a sla-
ver. After detaining her for some time, she was
allowed to proceed.

The Postmaster who wishes to know from us
how many of thIe Post Office Laws may be vio-
lated, and who thinks it would be "folly in the
extreme fotbr one person to try to enforce those
laws which are every day violated," had bet-
ter apply to the Post Master General for instruc-
tions. He must act onrr Ihis own respoitsbility in
suffering violations of the law, without reference
to other Postmasters. IHowever, as the subject
to which lie refers ought to be well understood
by the people, and as the observance of the law
may save Postmasters from an unpleasant duty,
we publish below the extract from the law to
which he refers. The P.M. aforesaid informs us
that in many of fhe country Post offices there
will be found as many old papers with the con-
,tents of a letter written on them, as there will
proper letters. Every such violation subjects
the offender to a fine of $5, as will be seen by
the following extract from section 30 of the P.
0. Laws:-
"If any person shall enclose or conceal a let-
ter, or other thing, or any memorandum in wri-
ting, in a newspaper, pamphllet, or magazine, or
in any package of newspapers, pamphlets, or
magazines, or make any writing or memoran-
dumin thereon, which ihe shall have delivered into
any post office, or to any person for that purpose,
in order that thIe same may be carried by post,
free of letter postage, he shall forfeit the sum of
Five Dollars for every such oflfence, and the let-
ter, newspaper, package, memorandum, or other
thing, shall not be delivered to tire person to
whom it is directed, until the amount of single
letter postage is paid for each article ol which
the package is composed."

The returns now embrace all but three towns
in Newport county, New Shoreham, Jamestown,

which we shall correct when we receive the
complete returns.
The extraordinary inclemency of the weather
and the absence of all opposition, combined to
render the vote almost unprecedentedly small.

Gen. Harrison and Jude B9arnect. At the
tueeting of the Committee in Cincinnati to agree
upon suitable measures to express the public
feelings on the melancholy occasion of Gen.
IIArtntsoN's death, a motion was made and u-
nanimouslv adopted, that Judge BnNET be re-
quested to deliver the eulogy upon the late Pres.
ident. The Judge was present, being Chairman
,.r the C.oniiilf,-'e. ,He declined tie reqaest-
arind never," "'- the Cincinnati Repubrlican,
did we witness deeper feeling or listen to truer
eloquence than in the remarks he made." I
cannot accept," said hlie, I could not speak. I
knew Harrison forty-six years ago', he was a
brother to me then ; we have been brothers ever
since; our hearts were knit together, and I
would choke were I to attempt to speak of him.
He is the last of thIe little band who started this
city. 1 am alone now, all alone, and I cannot
talk of my friend. I cannot." And the manly
tears fell down his cheeks, and the sobs which
were heard coming alike from the aged and tIhe
young of both parties, told thie deep sympathy
which all felt. The scene was touching. It
overcame all who witnessed it."

J Correspondensce of the ,lbany Argus.
New Orleans, April 2d.
I am here on my way to Arkansas, with 200
wretched Seminole Indians. They are the rem-
nants of a Spartan race. The men are noble,
hardy looking fellows, whom you can but res-
pect, though they have murdered the innocent
and unoffending. But the women and children
excite your pity and commiseration. On our te-
dious voyage hither, they lay about the *deck,
perfectly resigned, and apparently indifferent to
thoir fate, careless of life, and fearless of death.
I was at Fort Cummings when the noted
chief Coacooche, or Wild Cat, came in for a
"talk." This man is remarkable for the many
incidents in his life, and for his bold and dar-
ing spirit. He was once a prisoner, but made
his escape through a hole in the walls of his
prison, so surprisingly small that an ordinary
man's head would not enter it; and after ihe
was through, jumped twenty-five feet to the
ground. This fellow has committed more mur-
ders, and scalped more women aud children than
any other Indian in Florida-and this man we
were to take, and did take by the hand in friend-
He came into our camp, bringing with him
seven trusty squires," who in looks, dress and
manner, might well be painted to illustrate and
personate the old one himself; a little effusion
of brimstone, a blue flame and a few tails, would
have made the picture complete. Wild Cat's
manner, upon coining into the presence of so
many officers, and surrounded as lie was by so
large body of soldiers, was somewhat confused,
but soon recovered himself, and spoke with ease,
amid not ungracefully. He is about thirty years
of age, five feet eight inches high, well propor-
tioned ; with a calm, settled, manly face, and a
dark fierce eye, beaming with intelligence. The
colonel talked to him openly and frankly ; he
returned it, and promised to cease fighting and
emigrate. His little daughter, a child of five
years, who had been taken prisoner, and separa-
ted trom her parents some five or six months,
was then given up to himu, and fur the first .time,
in an Indian, I saw the evidence of feeling and
I consider tIme Florida war as at an end. All
th chiefs and Iudians are surrenderintg. These
I am now taking off, have been the most des-
perate in the country, and acknowledged to
have been the very spirit of the war. I left at
Tantpa, more than a hundred who were awaiting
tlie arrival of their friends, when they will em-
bark for their new homes."

BiAtTtF', lr.ST.nsrartos. At the Oratorio
of the Creation at the Musical Fund Hall, on

Thursday evening, just before tlie passage "and
God said, Let there be light," occurred, the gas
was shut o', and there was a dim and obscure
light in time Hall. The audience hardly under-
stood iats purp ,se', but when the words "and there
was I,*'lt" ,.'er. pronounced, the gas was sud-
denly let on, and the room glowed with an in-
tense and brilliant light. The effect was per-
lectly electrical. Many of the audience almost
sprang from their seats, the illusion was so start-
ling.-Philadelphia North .nmerican.

passing up Pitts street on Monday afternoon,
loaded with from two to three tons of stone, a
child of Mr Johnson, sexton of Pitts street chapel,
only four years old, ran before the wheel, which
knocked it down, and passed across its body be-
tween the hips and short ribs. It appeared so in-
credible that it was not crushed immediately to
death, that doubts were entertained whether the
wheel actually passed over it. The truckman
picked up the child within two feet ofthie wheel,
supposing it to be killed, and other persons saw
the occurrence. T'ie marks of the wheel are
i.,w distinctly visible around tts bow-els, and
ot;iir circiiustances conclusivily prove the fact.
ThIe child, ulthiouigh it appeared greatly injured,
is now quite cheerful-has borne its weight upon
its feet, and to all appearance is doing well. No
blame is attributed to the truckman, who has
been very much distressed since thIe accident oc-
curred.--Bost Jour.

CASE OF STABBISN. A man named William
Emmons, who came from the South a few weeks
since, on Friday evening went to the theatre, ta-
king his Bowie knife with him, and got excited
with liquor, which is generally the prime agent
in deeds of guilt. He went to ihe house of Mr.
Carlton in Richmond st. where hlie was very abu-
sive to Mrs. C., which induced the children to
call for help. Charles Reed, a worthy young
man, a hackney coachman in the employment of
John Wright, boarded opposite-and hearing the
call, promptly went to see what was thIe matter.
He obliged Emmons to desist from his brutal
conduct-but the ruffian, excited by rage and
rum, followed Mr Reed into the street, attacked
him, and stabbed him with his bowie knife in the
abdomen, inflicting a terrible wound. The poor
fellow staggered to his boarding house-bnt pass-
ed the remainder of the night in terrible agony-
and no hope is entertained of his recovery.
Emmons was arrested by the watchmen, and
on Saturday morning was carried before the po-
lice Court, where ihe underwent a short examnin-
ation, and was then fully committed for a fur-
ther examination on Welnesday next, as it is
probable that Reed will'not survive till that
time, and in case of his death, Emmons will be
indicted for mnurdcr.-Boston Transcript.

At a meeting of the "Salem Temperance Un-

nanimously, To invite all thie Clergymen of
this city, to deliver one lecture each on the sub-
ject of TEMPERANCE,-0om the Lord's day evening
of each week in succession,-and referring the
topics to the Clergymen themselves ;-and the
Executive Committee were requested to make
necessary arrangements as to the time of com-
mencement, and the place of their delivery. A
Committee were also chosen to inquire if Messrs
HAWRINS and WRIGOT, from thIe Washington
Temperance Society in Baltimore,-and who are
now laboring with so much success in Boston,-
can extend their visit to this plItcc for a few
days, on the same errand of love and mercy, to
those who may be willing to hear and follow
their example in abstaining from the use of all
intoxicating drink.

The steam ship Great Western,Capt Hosken,
arrived at New York on Saturday, 16 days from
England, having left Bristol on the 8th inst.-
The Rev. Dr. Vv'aylind was among the passen-
The Great VVWestern enc.-untered very severe
weather, and fell in with large islands of ice. On
the 18th from 9,15 passed several small pieces-
blowed the engines, and at 9,30 run into a field
of ice extending as as the eye could reach ;
at 10,15 succeeded in getting the ship's head to
the Eastward, and at 11 got clear of the field.-
On the 18th anttd 20th was completely surround-
ed by ice. '
The intelligence by this arr. id is only 4 di. u
later, and presents nothing of prominent inter-
est. The overland Itndia mail had not arrived,
but was due and hourly expected.
There was another rumor, by way of Russia,
on the 6th, that the China dispute had, been ad-
justed, but it was not credited.
Public opinion seemed to have settled down
into the belief that peace with this country will.
continue uninterrupted, and the papers are chief-
ly discussing other subjects.
Up to the closing of the mail from Liverpool
to London on the 7th inst. the Steamer President
had not arrived, and the most painful anxiety
prevailed concerning her fate. ,
A rumor prevailed in London on the 7th that
the President had been sien making for the Wes-
tern Islands-but it proved to be unfounded.
There is no doubt thet the President experien-
ced the same hurricane which the Caledonia on-
countered on the 13th and 14th ult. which is de-
scribed by some old captains on board as one of
the most severe they ever witnessed.
Thie Liverpool Albion says, the prevalent opin-
ion is, that she must have run to the Western
Isles, and might be daily expected. Thle steam-
er Liverpool, in 1839, was 27 days from N. York
to Liverpool, via Fayal.
The President had been eut 28 days when the
Western sailed-25 per cent had been paid on
her, and it was supposed that not less than 30
would be accepted at Lloyd's. She was first in-
sured at 5 per cent. .

To the Honorable Justices of the Court of
Common Pleas begun and holden at Salem within
and for said County, on the third Monday of March
The petition of the undersigned humbly shews,
that they with others are proprietors of a meadow
situated in Rowley, in raid County which for the
want of being properly drained is overgrown with
flags and other meadow plants of little value, and
which cannot be cultivated on account of the wa-
ter which during a large part of the year remains
upon it-that said land with small expense would
be greatly increased in value, and be made im-
proveable as tillage or grass land, and that the
only thing needed to accomplish this is that it be
suitably drained.
They therefore pray that your Honors sill order
said meadow to be drained, and appoint suitable
Commissioners to cause the same to be reflected.

For the cure of Jaundtce, Indigestiun, Weak Stom-
ach, loss of Appetite, General Debility, &c.
r7 HESE Bitters are admirably adapted for
tile cure of the abote named complaints, and
superior to any other kind of Bitters ever introdu-
ced, being composed of medicinal plants of the
most innocent yet specific virtues. They are the
best stomachic and corrective the vegetable king-
dom furnishes, they contain not a particle of alloes,
and are vastly superior to all the alloetic prepara-
tions called bitters, the constant use of which oc-
casions piles, and other disagreeable complaints.
They are highly useful at all seasons of the year,
particularly in the spring andti sninmer months,
when persons of Inlious habits experience a total
loss if appetite and relaxation of the system.-
Those who labor under the infirmities of old age
will find these bitters to prove a wholesome, agree-
able, aiad invigorating stomach cordial, increasing
he appetite and assisting digestion in a remarka-
ble degree, removing those low spirited and trem-
bling sensations, the sure effect of want of tone in
the system. Being pungently aromatic they are
particularly recommended to sealaring persons as
anr anlidole against the scurvy. Persons going to
he West Indies or to any trcptcal climate, wh ere
the long continued heat or humidity of the atmos-
phere relxes the system and produces diarrhea
and disease of the liver, and which is so often fol-
lowed by yellow lever, ought by all means to fur-
nish themselves with these bitters, a* by their
timely use these diseases will be prevented. Ev.
ery ship-master who has a proper regard for his
own health and the health of his men ought al-
ways to place a few bottles of these-bitters among
his ship stores. They will be found in all cases
of the following description to give relief, viz:-
Jaun6ice, Weak Stomach, Costiveness, Excessive
Weariness, Loss of Appetite, Dulr.ess and Oppres-
ision, a propensity to sleep, bitter taste in the
mouth, Loathing of Food, Diarrhoea, Sickness a
the Stomach, General Debility, and all the symp-
toms of Indigestion and Flatulence.

HOSE afflicted with GRAVEL and STONE
in the Kidneys and Bladder, may be reliev-
ed and cured by the use of a Solvent Medicine,
discovered and tested by many years experience,
by S. H. P. LEE, M D. of New London, Conn.
To solve the Gravel and prevent its formation,
has been a desideratum long looked for by the Pro-
fession. This obtect-it is confidently believed, has
been attained by Dr Lee, in the discovery of a
combination oa vegetable and chemical agents,
which when administered, will not only dissolve
calculous concretions, and eject them, both in a
granular and pulverulent state, from the Kidneys
and bladder, by the urine, but also change the Di-
ATHEsts, or disposition of the system to their for-
nation, and at the same time, restore the constitu-
tion, when it has become impaired by the frequent
attacks of this disease.
For the benefit of those persons in Boston, and
its vicinity, afflicted with this disease, he has estab-
lished an INFIRMARY, under the especial charge
of his son, HENRY S. Lea, M. D. at No 27 Howard
Street, Boston, Irom whom the Medicine and Med-
cal consultations can be ha,!, by personal applica-
ion, or by letter (post paid.)

"Having used Dr Taylor's Balsam o1 Liverwort
in my practice, and also among my hospital pa-
tients lor nearly 4 years, in very many cases of
diseased liver, I can safely assure the public, by
my experience that there is no known remedy for
this disease deserving so much confidence, It
does away with the use of mercury, anid speedily
re stores a healthy action to diseased livers. Al

Arduous labor,with much exposure,produced a con-
sumptive decline, which nearly took my life. A
cruel cough with much pain, a discharge ot large
masses of phleglinhm and much blood, together with
night sweats, and loss of appetite, reduced me to
death's door and hopeless. But He whom I de-
light, serve, in his mercy saw fit to prolong mny ex-
istence. My good physician, finding his own
means useless, gave rme Mr. Taylor's Balsam ol
Liverwort, and a rapid recovery of health, by

HIS Medicine has been introduced to the
public foi about two years, during which
time its reputation has been established as the
cheapest and most eltectual remedy for disease,
that has ever been introduced. Thousands have
ieen cured or relieved of various complaints, nnd
many diseases of long standing, and considered in-
curable, have yielded to KINGLiY's PILLS.-
The demand has been so great, that in many in-
stances they could not be supplied, and while the
numerous manufacturers of Brandreth's Pills have
been filing the country with their spurious imita-
tions, and quarrelling among themselves about di-
viding the spoils collected from thousands whom
they have humbugged-the propietor of KIrNG-
LEI's PILLS has endeavored to supply the peo-
ple With a medicine which they can rely upon as
genuine, and at all times safe and efficacious. lie
a happy to state, that his exertions have been
rewarded by numerous certificates from different
parts ot the United States, of the good effects pro-
duced by these Pills, and by the increasing de
mand for them, where they have been introduced,
and their valuable qualities known. They have
been sanctioned and prescribed by the regular
Physicians, which is what Dr Evans calls "an

DR. M. IIITCHCOCK'S unrivalled and une-
qualled WORM TEA, a sovereign remedy
or Worms. Strange and incredible are the effects
of these detestable vermin: few persons, and it is
thought none, are free from them, particularly fe-
males and children. Many persons go through a
distressing course of medicine without any benefit,
when they might be relieved by using the Worm
Tea. T'his invaluable medicine has been tested

by the experience of more than ten years' use,
and administered to more than 16,000 persons of
various ages, and not one solitary complaint; on
the contrary, hundreds have called, and, unsolicit-
ed, given their decided preference to it, after try-
ing the different articles sent forth to the public,
and pronounced Dr. M. Hitchcock's Worm Tea
the most safe, effectual, and convenient remedy
that can be obtained; for in no one of the thous-
ends of instances where it lihas been used agreeably
ta the printed directions, ihas it ever failed.
N. B. Ask for Dr. M. Hitchcock's WonRaM
TEA, as there are many nostrums abroad for the
destirnetion of worms.

Coarseness, Redness, and Pimples on the
Face, Neck or Hands, and effectually cleaning the
complexion, and removing all diseases of thie skin.
Nothing contributes so imueh to our general
siiccess in life as an engaging first appearance.-
This Lotion is admired as a most fragrant, mild,
safe wash, and greatly esteemed for its virtues in

eruptions, so injurious to fenmalo beauty, and re-

A beautiful and healthful complexion is the
pride of all who possess it, and the envy of those
who are deprived of it. What can be so affect-
ing to a beautiful female, in whose face nature
has displayed her power, as to find her complex-
ion discolored with disgusting pimples, which af-

A good appearance is the best recommendation;
and as the Beautifying Lotion purifies the skin,
and removes all I'imnples, Blotches. T1n. Sunburn

the only cosmetic a lady should use at her toilet.

worms, Spots, Redness, Soreness of the face and
pose, and every kind of eruption un the suilace of
