felt within me that I might get well. I have now used the Sar-
saparilla about two months and am like a different being. The
arm that was to be amputated has entirely healed-a thing that

period of my life, and my general health is better than it has

feel the pulsations of health coursing through my veins, my whole
heart and soul go forth in fervent gratitude to the Author of all

Memss. GAiLU& SEATO : Is East Florida healthy 1 Thii
is the question under discussion. It is not whethef-r the coun-
try is more healthy than the Southwestern dilvsiuun"Of the
United States,thbe miasmatic districtsof Maryland and Vir-
ginia," or the coasts of Carolina and Georgia; but is "the
great salubrity of this climate incontrovertibly established," as
is so positively asserted by A Physician 1"
In my last number the reports of the Surgeon General were
examined, and the data on which" A Physician" evidently re-
lisefor support were carefully compared with the other portions
of his reports, and with the medical statistics of the whole army
and of the troop serving in Florida. It was shown that, from
June, 1836, to the end of the year, the number constantly sick
in one thousand men varied from 943 to 326, and that, Irom
June to the end of September, 1837, the number conaianily
sick varied from 254 to 361 per thousand. It was also shown
S that in September, 1837, the number constantly sick per thou-
sand daring the month was 361, or considerably more than
one-third of the whole Florida army. IL was shown, too, that
the average number constantly sick during the first three
year. of the war (1L836, 183', IftS, the last being the most
healthy of seven years) varied from 143 to 361 per thousand,
and that the general average was I14, whilst the most sickly
command in the British West Indies has only an average of
87 per thousand constantly aick. It was also shown that the
number of cases of disease in the Florida army in 1841
amounted to443 per centum of the mean strength i c.nsequer, t-.
IT every man must have been sick four times, andi nearly half
the army five times during the year. Finally, it was shown
that the mortality of the troops in Florida in 1841 amounted
to 1 in 181 of the mean strength.
In the preceding communication was inserted a table in re-
lation to the sickness and mortality of the troops in Florida
and of the whole army for 1841, based on ihe SurgeonGene-
ral's report, and it seems desirable to extend this table a little
S further, as follows:

I ia 991
I in 821

t in 1311

It appears from the above table that in 1811 the number of
tases In the whole army in proportion to the number tf men
in service is 396 per cent., and in Florida 443 per cent. Ex-
cluding Florida, the deaths amount to only 133, a ratio of 21
per cent., or I in 37f of the mean strength, whilst the mor-
taliy in Florida is 5j per cent., or 1 in 181, increasing the
mortality of the whole army from 21 to 4 per cent., or from 37|
tol in25 1-5 of the men in service. The above table also shows
that the proportion of deaths to the number of cases treated,
in the whole army, exclusive of Florida, is 1 in 13i; includ-
ing Florida the mortality is augmented to I in 991.
It is not to be forgotten that the unhealthy Southwestern
portion of our army is InOclded in the foregoing table, and yet
lthe mortality is 1 in 1311 to 1 in 8-21 of the cases treated-a
difference of almost one per cent. ; and the number of deaths
in proportion to the mean strength is I in 371 in the army to
I in 181 in Florida. In other words, the mortality in Florida
for the yer is more than double the rest of the army, Includ-
ing th'i Southwestern division, in proportion to the number of
mo in service.
Yet, in the face of all these facts, A Physician," with in-
imitable sng froid, asserts that ihe great salubrity of this
climate is incontrovertibly esLablished."
In recapiLulating these facts, it may be well to remark that
,during the whole war the main body of the troops served in
East Florida, and therefore the medical statistics of the whole
S of Florida may be fairly taken as a true statement of the
health of the troops in this part of the Territory. In 1841 this
was particularly the casue, a very large portion of the Florida
army being entirely confined to the peninsula.
The following table shows the ratio of mortality among the
troops of different countries:
Ptussian army 1.1 per cent.
Malta 11 I
SNorthwestern stations, (United States) 1.3 "
I' lonva Bcotia and New Brmnswtck 1.4 "
New South Waled 1.4 "
SCanada 1.5 "
British troops, home stations 1.7 "
Cape of Good Hope 1.8 "
Northern and Eastern stations, (U. States) %. "
French army, home stations "
Gibralias 2.1 "
Ionian Islands 2 2.4 "
Bombay 3.3 "
Mauritius 3.5 "
Newfoundland 3.8 "
United States, (from all causes) 4.4 "
Ceylon 4.8 "
East Florida 5.1 "
Madras 5.2 "
Bengal 5.7 "
Southwestern stations, (United States) 6. "
Florida, four first years of the war, (from all
causes) 6.1 "
West Indies 9.5 "
The ratio of mortality for East Florida in the above table
is5 1 per cent., being the ratio of the Second Dragoons,
"which served nearly altogether in East Florida," and is
considered a fair ratio for this part of the Territory. The ratio
' fir the southwestern stations (6 per cent,) is 3 10ths more
than that of the Seventh Infantry (5.7) for ten years, which
Swase stationed at Forts Gibson, Jesup, Toweon, Smith, &c.,
and "continued on the southwestern frontier." It is made
equal to the mortality of the Second Artillery from 1829 to
1835 inclusive, which was "stationed on the seaboard from
Charleston to New Orleans, and at Fort Mitchell and Au-
gusta Arsenal; in 1836-'37 serving in Florida, and in
1838 marched to the Cherokee nation."
.huas It appears that the ratio of mortality for East Florida,
allowing for slight inaccuracies, is not far from 5 per cent .;
and the mortality in all Florida, from all causes, for the
"four first years of the war," is 6.1 per cent. Yet, notwith-
standing all Ihese facts, A Physician" asserts that the
Proportion of deaths which occurred in the Florida army
(including those who were killed in battle) during the four
first years of the war, (ihe most mortal period,) was but
.. u one to two, compared with those of the southwestern
a 'division of our army, in which the troops were stationed
I l comfortable quarters."
IF, then, as asserted by "A Physician," the number of
deaths in the southwestern division is two to one compared
with those of Florida, from all causes, during the four first
years of the war," they will amount to 12.2 per cent., a
S greater mortality by 2.7 per cent. than at the unhealthy
stations of the West Indies. This can never be pretended.
Unheal'bhy as the southwest has always been, the mortality
has never approached so high a ratio. Even at Fort Gibson,
althe mRt Inisalutbrloa-post now permflkfi'n-ly .cerupie," the
mortality from all causes is nol more than 6,5 per cent., and
the mortality of the whole southwestern department of the
army for ten years, from all causes, cannot be more than 6
per cent. Indeed it may be doubted if the ratio of deaths
can be fairly made more than 5.1 per cent: but let it remain
ua it stands in the able, 6 per cent.
Can "A Physician" make good his assertion that the
proportion of deaths which occurred in the Florida army,
From all canuses, during the first four years of the war was
as about one to two, compared with those of the south-
western division of the army'I" Is "this important fact
proved by the statistics in the Su'geon General's Officel "
The ratio of mortality in East Florida (5.1) is, as already
stated, that of bthe Second Dragoons, which rtiegiment served
almost entirely in the peninsula. It may be stated too high,
though the mortality in 1841 was as high se 5t percent, but
the ratio during the whole war will not pruve the country
salubrious, especially when the numerous cases of disease
incident to the climate and the broken down slate of the
troops at the close of every sickly season are taken into con-
Nor doem it appear from the foregoing table that any part
o( Florida, compared with other countries, is very salubrious.
Quite the contrary. In the scale of mortality East Florida
S is seen to be less healthy than Bombay, Mauritius, or Cey-
S Ion, and but little more so than Madras and Bengal. It may
be said in reply that the whole United States, according to
he army statistics, exhibits a higher ratio than either Bom-
bay or Mauritius. Granted, and it is caused by the high
mortality of the southern stations ; and the United States
# troops have always been pioneers ol the new setlemenits. If
1 this were the proper place, many reasons miaht be assigned
for the high ratio of mortality in the whole army,

r now pilll In review tIe statistics of Florida,
compared with those of the United Stales anl other coun-
tries, it is submitted whether the number of deaths is as
but one to two, compared with the southwestern division." It
has been before stated that, according to this assertion of "A
Physician," the mortality of the southwestern division would
amount to 1- -2 per cenl. No one will pretend this to be the
fact-the table speaks for itself.
Can it be said that East Florida is salubrious I This ques-
tion is to be yet more fully discussed : and now let us pass
10to the examination of particular pasts
Before proceeding, however to he c-.nsideration of the df.
forent stations in East Flri.Ja, a few remarks will be made
on the manner of publishing to the world the /.cfs in rela-
tion to the climate and health of Florida. In most cases the
writer is content with a sweeping declaration in regard to the
salubrity of the climate; but if he attempt statistics of a
station er district, he dismisses the subject with a remark
that "five or six out of three hundred and sixty (cases I
suppose) died;" that "the mortality can be satisfactorily
explained without attributing it to the influence of the
climate;" that the diseases of the posts referred to were
generally of the mildest character ;" that "it is one of the
habits of intermittent fever to return," &ce.
If an attempt at statistics ie seriously made, the mortality
per cent. of the whole number of cases alone is given : the
mean strength, number of cases of sickness, and number of
deaths not being noticed. Without these data no one can
form any idea of the sickness at many of the stations during
the existence of Indian hostilities; and even with them but
a faint conception san be had of the sufferings which it has
been the lot of many a poor fellow to experience.
Much is said about places and districts of country being
healthy or otherwise; but there is nothing more difficult to
define, according to the common use of the term, than the
word healthy. It means, in out country of extremes and va-
riable temperature, almost any thing ; and there is no place
in the United States but is pronounced healthy by those in-
terested to have it so. But some other standard than the
caprice of those who chance to give an opinion is necessary.
The following, from a modern writer, may perhaps be as
correct as any:
Whilst the energy of the vital endowment is uninjured,
and its manifestations in the various systems are in due
harmony throughout, and with the state tf the structures
with nich it is associated, all the operations of the body
are duly and steadily performed. This is the condition
which may be termed health. But as soon as the energies
of the vital principle become depressed, excited, exhausted,
or otherwise altered, either throughout the body or in any
of the systems or organs by which it is manifested, disease
This is the correct standard by which to judge of the ea-
lubrity of any climate, and will be applied to that of East
Florida. If it be found that, from a prevalence of miasmata
or other causes, there are very many cases in which the va-
rious systems are not in "due harmony" and "the energies
of the vital principle become depressed, exhausted, or other-
wise altered ;" in other words, if disease frequently super-
vene, whatever it may be termed, whether intermittent, re-
mittent, congestive fever, or dysentery1 the place or district
of country in which the disease frequently occurs is not
It is not necessary that the disease should be so fatal as to
produce a very high ratio of mortality, for "morbid actions
end ultimately in two ways: 1st. In health; 2d. Death,"
But if endemic disease or epidemics are so frequent in any
climate (though but few cases comparatively terminate fa-
tally) as to break down the troops serving in the country; if
the disease, whatever it may be called, recur so often as to
injure the constitution of the unfortunate individual affected,
so as to render it necessary for him to repair to the North in
order to re-establish his health; and if the inhabitants also
suffer from all the forms of disease which follow in the train
of malaria, presenting a sallow complexion, bloated appear
ance, attenuated limbs, and all the signs of an obstructed
system, one hazards little in declaring the country unhealthy.
If this country (East Florida, if you please) have four epi-
demic seasons (1836, 1837, 1839, and 1841) in seven, and
the remaining three (1838, 1840, 1842) have a large propor-
tion of endemic diseases, it must and will be pronounced
unhealthy. Added to this, if there be a tolerably high ratio
of mortality during the whole seven years, there is no unpre-
judiced person but would say at once that the country is
positirel, unhealthy.
In the examination of particular stations in East Florida,
it will be most convenient in many respects to begin with
those in the vicinity of the Suwannee river. This river, the
boundary between Middle and East Florida, rises by several
branches near the Okefenokee Swamp, in Georgia, and re-
ceiving several tributary streams, discharges itself into the
Gulf of Mexico in about latitude 29 dog. 8 min. north. It
takes a very circuitous course to the qGuif in particular,
making a very large bend from post No. 20 to the mouth of
the Santa Fe river, which it receives about 12 miles below
Fort Macomb.
SPost No.20 is the first station on the Suwannee after it leaves
Georgia. This station was established under Gen. Taylor's
survey of the Territory in 1838. As it was in the neighbor
hood of settlers, who were in the main good inhabitants and
had made considerable progress in agriculture, and vegetables
and other productions could be purchased at a reasonable rate
for Florida-being also the least sickly of the river stations-
it was, all things taken into the account, perhaps the most
desirable post on the Suwannee.
Yet it was healthy only as compared with the other river
stations. The writer was informed by the medical officer
that there were a few cases of fever of a congestive character,
and quite a number of cases of remittent fever. This station
was broken up in November, 1839. No. 21, near the Mine-
ral Springs, was a dependency of the above, and had only a
subhaltern's guard.
Charles Ferry -The next station, on our way down the
river, is that at the ferry, on the main road from St Augus-
tine to Middle Florida. This post was unhealthy. In 1839
there were a great number of cases of fever, and the ratio of
mortality was not less than five per cent., as the diseases were
of a high grade, and there were several deaths. It always
had the reputation among the medical officers in Florida of
being an unhealthy post.
Fort Macomb, next below Charles Ferry, was a sickly post
from first to last. It is situated on a high bluff, twenty-two
miles from Fort White, on the Santa Fe, and about fifty
three miles by land, and, following the circuitous course of
the stream, seventy five by water from the mouth of the
river. It is at the head of steamboat navigation, though boats
cannot go much above the mouth of the Santa Fe unless at
high water. For weeks, in the dry season, steamboats were
unable to reach Fort Macomb.
In 1839 this post suffered from intermittents and remittents,
and, finally, in the last part of the sickly season, the troops
were much broken down from the debilitating effects of the
climate, from disentery, and scurvy. In 1840 (though a dif
ferent command) fever of all types was even more rife than
ia 1839, and the troops were broken down this year also.
The medical officer (Assistant Surgeon Williams) served
here during the last part of the sickly season of 1839, and
the whole sickly season of 1840, and finally left the Territo.
ry in the latter part of the year with a shattered constitution,
and gave up his commission. He came from the post at
Traders' Hill, Georgia, in excellent health, and left this sta-
tion a mere wreck of bis former self. So much for Fort Ma-
comb. No inhabitants were settled in the vicinity at this
period, and none will be for a long time to come, if they value
the health and life of their families.
This subject will be resumed in my next number.

P. S. ERRATrUM.-Where it is written, in my last commu-
nication, there is little relative difference, on the whole, in
sickness and mortality between East Florida and the adjoin-
ing Southern States," lot adjoining read neighboring South-
ern States.

We have been favored with a sight of a copy of a
letter, written to one of his fair friends in Paris, by
a noble foreigner who lately left England. We are
sorry we could not find space for it in extenso, nor
reserve the spirit of ihe French original, but we
liiiik the following extracts will interest our readers;
LoNnoN, JisiN 16, 1843.
"To compensate Ior an age of silence I send you a moun-
tain of chht-chat. You want a review iof London life, fair and
somewhat unreasonable lady-'you insist upon it; ce que
fontnre vsut, Deu te vcut'-1 therefore obey you.
I must roll into ohe enormous letter scraps of two seasons
of my experience; it is no trifle. Expect me to be mighty
incoherent. As to this season hitherto all the femtes du
ionde, all the belles and the beaux, assisted by an accompa-
niment di cuore of groans from dealers in luxury, justly com-
plain of its unconquerable tristesse. Many mammals try to
console their daughters, so anxious to shake off maternal ty-
ranny-telling them this is not a year for matrimony; that
the winds are contrary. Poor young ladies-not to dance,
not to be able to give away their hands, even for a chasez
croisi ; this is awful. To admire oneself in a mirror, to find
oneself pretty, an&d to hear it said only by one's mamma and
aunts, this is wretched consolation indeed. Such was the
state of things but a few days back, when symptoms of
waking showed themselves. *
To make up for such unfavorable scenes, and in the midst
of the dearth of pleasure, there is a privileged place which
twice a week I have visited, every time with fresh enthusi-
asm. It may be the power of English gold which produces
there such a numerous and unique assemblage of talent; but
what is certain is, that the results in the way of recreation
are enchanting, and that is what I seek. Fair lady, the Ita-
lian opera in London is the temple of fortune as well as of
art; at every age you go there; though he beholds there the
whole world, friends and enemies, each spectator may say when
he enters, Here I am at home, and in the fairest and best of
companies.' You may even see there ladies beautiful them
selves and beautifully dressed in the highest places, not to be
met with at the drawing- room-the reason you are at liberty to
guess. That you may be able to judge of the influence of the
scenes I shall describe, let me tell you that fashion in oFogland
is a perfect fanaticism. There are two sorts of fashionin Eng-
land-the one to mode du grand monde, the other a perfect
despotism, which bears the same relation to its prototype
which superstition bears to religion. It is enforced by every
class of society and to it all succumb, at heart at least-the
most crabbed democrats, as well as the opulent and highly-
educated bourgeois. This fashion is to be. studied abuae ill
at her Majesty's Theatre, which is its centre, arad, to gratify
you, I have devoted many an hour to its contemplati.m. But
we must first take together a caup d'oil of the house. Poor
in architectural embellishment, but immense in size, and no-
ble in its proportions, the stage is small beyond anything you
can imagine, but highly sonorous for the singers, whilst
scene-painters and machinists of marvellous talent compen
sate by their ingenuity for the narrowness of their field of
action. The pit, instead of being filled, as in Paris, with
ill-dressed men, admits of persons of both sexes whose out-
ward appearance is always becoming. The pit, besides, com-
municates with the boxes, and into its centre alley, called
the walk of coxcombs,' and into the two open corridors
which form the boundary of its outward circle, men of the
highest rank descend to survey the house-to indulge in
causeries, and to keep appointments for it is the rendezvous
of all the young bachelors of the great metropolis, distinguish-
ed by their talents, their fortune, or their rank. You already
see here the immense superiority of the London opera house
over every other, and it must have presented the most.exqui-
site of aspects when, but few years back, was rigorously en-
forced that full dress which has such a magic effect on the
manners and bearing of that creature of circumstances called
man. To the stalls is devoted a lion's share of that singu-
larly formed elliptical space which the boxes enclose as they
rise tier above tier, the stalls embracing apparently all the de-
voted and true lovers of music. There you see the real
melomanes, who, placed at the head of the younger and gid-
dier men of fashion, and of the rich parvenus, who seek their
contact and ape their manners, distribute that applause which
to the virtuoso is the breath of his nostrils.' There you
see enthroned as judges such devoted musical votaries as
Lord Templetown, with his ever faithful companion, the
Marquis of Tichfield, whose admiration of vocal talent the
statues of Danton will commemorate. Not far off you see
Sir William Abdy, whose concerts are the choicest in Lown-
don, and Lord Alvanley, one of the wittiest cosmopolies in
all Europe; Sir Henry Webb, so obliging to us Frenchmen,
and so justly popular in London as well as in Paris; the
Marquis of Clanricarde, who has as prominent a situation
here as a senator as he had as an ambassador abroad; besides
a hundred mote amateurs, no lees distinguished for their
taste, their talents, and their rank. Now we come to the
boxes, whose tiers are far more tempting to the eyes of the
fair than :he circles of Paradise Dante limned with so magic
a louach. The two horns of the pit tier terminate in two gi-
gantic boxes, in which the danseuses read their fate, just as
the singets do theirs in the stalls. These two boxes are the
stronagholdsof the lions. In Paris you know they were to be
divided into three classes-the full-mane lions, in their un-
studied toilettes, who know that youth needs no assistance of
art-these say, J'ai besoin do tout, je peux tout, and I lose
no time to enjoy.' The brindled lions, carefully shaved,
tightly girt, with whiskers and toauph fresh from th6 coiffeur's
hand, affecting perfect health, and a vigor often wanting-
these say, I have seen better things than these, I might still
eclipse, but it is too much trouble.' Next come the veteran
lions, proud of ancient exploits, rich in conversational anec-
dote, and, above all, chercliant a s dialstraire; liberal of ad-
vice, and pointing out those refinements of life which the
young are too impetuous to enjoy, and which the old add to
their fading laurels. These amiable lions are devotedly fond
of the opera, with its voluptuous ease and repose, by the as-
sistance of which time, rheumatism, and gout may be cheat-
ed. There are some lions who, often fatigued with the
whirlwind of effervescence their youennger brethren keep up,
have their separate nooks in the boxes, where they may seek
calm observation and repose: all those opinions are scarce
applicable here.
In the omnibus-box, to the left of the house, amongst a
dozen of the noblest men of fashionin the country, you see
thp handsome and Hon. James M- the youthful Mar-
qeis W-, with the hereditary grace of his family; the
Earl of C-, an excellent officer and dangerous adversa-
ry-the elegant Radical, Mr. T- D- ; the frank and
kind-hearted Lord A-- F- &c. &c. In the corres-
ponding omnibus box, you behold the noblest sportsmen in
the land. At their head is the Duke of B-, who keeps
up in splendor the sports of the field, and the hospitality of
his illustrious ancestors. Next to him is the Earl of C-,
who has inoculated even the listless princes of modern
Rome-(perhaps even the Pope in petto)-with the love of
the hearty fox-hunt. They have half a dozen colleagues in
the box, each meriting a biographical medaillion, if I had
time to sketch it. Besides, although, thanks to English hos-
pitality, my acquaintance is sufficiently numerous to fill up
every hour with pleasurable devuirs, I know but the tithe of
the crowd of noble and distinguished Englishmen who in
turn visit the London Opera. In the pit tier to the left, next
to the omnibus box, you behold the Marchioneaaof Douro,
whose calm classical beauty is peerless; and next to her
often sits one whom I am afraid we must confess has not his
match in the whole world-the Duke of Wellington. If, in
the councils of peace, and the emergencies of war, he has
not his equal, in society he is likewise remarkable for the
kindest affability, and for a certain dry a propose, which tells
with great effect. It is said, for example, that when, on their
first meeting in England, our Mat chal S- was firing at
him an overwhelming volley of compliments, he stopped him
short, saying, Allans, Mardchal, prenons uns lase de th,'
The next box is that of the Duchess of Beaufort, who com-
bines with the dignity of her rank the liveliest and most
graceful manners. A few boxes further back, in the same
tier, you generally see the amiable lady of one of the most
extraordinary characters in Europe-Lord Brougham. Po
litical history proves the wonderful resources of his versatile
eloquence; the works without number that have issued from
his pen, on every possible subject, make the world look upon
him as a sort of living encyclopedia; but there are bht few
that know, in our quarter of the globe, the singular conver-
sational powers of this noble original. Nothing can with
stand it. He has laughable stories for children, delightful
chit-chat for ladies, and at table the stern Radical, as well
as the unbending Tory, are obliged to succumb under the
magic of his humorous canseries."
"On the opposite side, in the pit tier, is the box of the no-
ble spouse of the late British Ambassador Extraordinary to
Washington-a gifted philanthropist and messenger of peace;
of the Duchess of Montrose, one of the fairest and noblest
of the high nobility of Scotland ; of one of the highest and
most courteous of the great officers of state, the Earl of Li-
verpool ; and next to his box is that of a noble lord who, it

is said, wields more influence than any other subscriber over
the fate of her Majesty's Theatre."
"Near the centre of the pit tier one often sees the noble
Countess Stanhope, a lady of distinguished manners and
great originality of esprit, the mother of one of the loveliest
belles in the British dominions. Above the pit is the grand
tier-on the left, terminating in a spacious box, of which an
opulent, noble, and tasteful amateur dispenses the hospitality
with a liberal hand. Towards the three still more ample
boxes that follow the eyes of the whole audience are turned
at every pause in the performance. It is the illustrious and
august tenants of these boxes that give to the Opera in Lon-
don its courtly character, and raises it-as far as society is
concerned, at all events-above every theatre in Europe-
the loyalty of the people combining with their innate love of
aristocracy to make these precincts the choice Elysium of
their hours of leisure. In the first of these capacious boxes
the young Queen of England and her royal consort appear
very frequently, and without any but indispenrsable c, rm.).-
ny. Both young, both handsome, both dile'tianti, and en-
j vina c.mrdially the charms .-.f the performance, they interest
the feelings and excite the dilentiarlsm of the audience. The
next bol is Ites frequently pecul-led by its august owner, the
Queen Diwagr; buat still her Majesty c.-mea from time to
time, a-ii she has so won the affections of tbe English,'to h
when on the throne and in her present retirement, that the
very eight of the QOueen Adelaide appears to infuse happi-
ness wherever she appears. The next double box, night
after night, is occupied by another branch of the Royal fami.-

ly, devoted dUlettnt. There dl the hilgh-minded Duchess
of Cambridge and her illustrious family. The excellent
Duke of Cambridge always appears enavant, eagerly enjoy-
ing every ntte of the music. Popular beyond expression
with every class of society, to whom be has endeared him-
self by his frank cordiality and innumerable acts of kind-
ness, he sits amongst the audience as if they were all part
of his household, expressing loudly and enthusiastically his
opinion of the performance, to which the spectators cheer-
fully respond. This cordial but ever-respecitful intercourse
betwixt the audience and the illustrious Prince ms, in my eyes,
the most curious and delightful circumstance attending the
performances at the Italian Opera here.'"
In the first box in the same tier on the opposite side ha-
bitually aits the Marchiones of Atlestbury, whose oeunie
napi-rscu you admired last winter in Paris. The nexL bx
is that of the Duke of Devonshire, a magnificent tioblemtn
of European celebrity, as a ruler in the realms of fashion,
and as a tasteful dilettanti and amateur ofvirtu. We sirangsre
are bound to speak of him with gratitude-he and the amia-
ble Duke of Beaufort, whom I mentioned beibre, do the ho-
nors of England with a liberality beyond all praise. In the
same box as his Grace of Devonshire is generally seen a lady
of imperial beauty, the Duchess of Sutherland, one of the
fairest and kindest of the leaders of British fashion, whose
residence is nothing short of a fairy palace, of which she
dispenses the hospitality with unaffected tact, grace, and dig-
nity. Next comes the box of the Duchess of Somerset-
further on that of the beautiful Marchioness of Abercorn;
next but one is that of the remarkably handsome Baroness
Brunnow, wife of the celebrated diplomatist, whose balls and
dinners are amongst the most rtecherch by high society in
London. The boles of the graceful Lady Southampton, of
the Duchess of Hamilton, who has left so many reminis-
cences in our capital, and of the brilliant Marchioness of
Londonderry, follow next."

Every body was pitying Mr. Sampson, the shoemaker of
the village of B. Now, gentle reader, you need not guess
Brunswick, nor Bethel, nor Bloomfield, nor any other village
beginning with a B, for I will assure you beforehand you
won't guess right; no body knows the identical place begin-
ning with a B, except the writer. Well, every body was
pitying the shoemaker, and as he passed daily by my window
on his way to his workshop, I involuntarily drew down my
face in token of commiseration, though why I should do it I
could not for my life have explained. But every body said he
was an unhappy man; a miserable man; that his wife almost
scolded his life out of him ; that she was the biggest scold in
the country, beat Xantippe of classical memory all hollow;
that in her fits of passion she whisked the poor shoemaker
about very much like a West India bamboo in a tropical hur-
ricane. Never was such a scold; her tongue might be heard
the first thing in the morning and the last at night. She was
so constantly scolding she would never take time to die, so
the poor shoemaker's misery seemed interminable. All the
men were telling how they would manage her if they had her
for a wife; and when a half dozen of them collected at a far-
mer's house, the shoemaker's wife was often the theme, and
many were the modes of punishment devised by those who
had not the shrew to deal with. It might generally be ob-
served on such occasions that those who were suspected of
being henpecked, now fortified by the numbers present, gene-
rally talked most valiantly how they would manage the shoe-
maker's wife if she belonged to them, now and then casting
furtive glances at their bustling good wives present. But it
was plain to be seen the women did not relish this theme when
discussed by the men. They would talk pathetically of the
shoemaker's grievances among themselves, talk eloquently of
the misery a man must suffer in being tied to such a terma-
gant ; but no sooner did the unlucky husband attempt to harp
upon the same string than, touch a hornet's nest, all the wo-
men were out with palliatives, and warm in the defence of
the shoemaker's wife. Every woman had her peculiar trials.
Mrs. Sampson, no doubt, had hers as well as others. She
had no flesh on her bones, and was as yellow as saffron-it
was plain she was a sick woman. Mr. Sampson appeared
pleasant enough out of doors, but for all that he might be a
tyrant at home."
Thus was poor Mrs. Sampson defended in spite of her
tongue. But, whatever they felt called upon to say in behalf
of Mrs. Sampson in the presence of their husbands, their
sympathies were actually altogether on the side of Mr. Samp
son. Every good wife wreathed her face into the most be-
coming smile when she accosted Mr. Sampson, merely out of
instinctive good nature; far be it from me to insinuate that
it was to contrast with the thin lips and sour visage of his own
good wife. Seeing the state of things, I began naturally to
study the countenance of the poor man as he passed by my
window/,in order to read the lines of care, the furrows of
misery, and cringing air of a henpecked man. But, truth to
say, no such things were to be seen. He generally passed
with a careless sturdy tread, humming a tune or picking his
teeth. As for wrinkles, his hale, good-natured, handsome
face looked as if it might bid defiance to them for many a
year to come. His bright open eye looked as if it had never
twinkled with any thing but good humor; and, instead of
being the most miserable, I at once sat him down for the hap-
piest man in the village of B. No one bought oftener gin-
gerbread and candy for his children, or new gowns for his
wife. When, arm in arm, they trudged along to meeting on
a Sunday, no man seemed more busily to chat with his Wife,
and no woman looked prouder of her husband. The secret
seemed to be in his having good-naturedly accommodated
himself to the disposition of his wife, without compromising
his own independence. After all, it depends less upon ex-
ternal circumstances thai on our own disposition, whether we
are happy or miserable in this life.
In process of time the shoemaker's wife died, leaving her
husband to follow her to the grave with as many children as
followed Mr. Rodgers to the stake, and whether that was
nine or ten we leave the reader to determine. Contrary to
the expectations of every one, Mr. Sampson mourned long
and truly for his wife. She had been a thrifty housewife,
and a neat careful mother, and so used were husband and chil
dren to severe discipline, that it was doubtful whether they
would know how to act without it.
But sorrow, like all other things in this sublunary world,
must have an end. The children were growing disorderly,
and were losing that tidy appearance that had always cha-
racterized them. Nothing in the shoemaker's snug domicil
went right. The good housewives in the village of B. were
busy in making a second match for poor Mr. Sampson; and,
like prudent women, they all pitched upon one of the very
antipodes of poor Mrs. Sampson, who was dead and gone.
Susan Gowen was mild, good natured, and "smart," and all
eyes were turned upon her as the future Mrs. Sampson. She
was just the right age, had a little property, and all declared
he could never do better; and Mr. Sampson, like a reason-
able man, believed what every body said, and married her.
This time, at least, the neighbors had no reason to com-
plain. The second Mrs. Sampson was a mirror of patience,
the neighbors who happened in about meal time could find no
fault with the bread and butter, the last article being thick
enough to satisfy the most captious; and as for pie or cake,
all declared her's were no "mother-in-law" pieces. The
shoemaker must and would be happy. Months passed away,
and, if the predictions of the neighbors were to be verified,
Mr. Sampson's appearance was somewhat equivocal for a
happy man. It was certain that he grew thin, did not whistle,
or laugh, or hum half so often as he used to do. His step
was listless, and he seemed to have lost much of that sturdy
activity which had formerly distinguished him.
The neighbors were completely at a stand. Mrs. Sampson
was strictly scrutinized, but nothing could be detected. She
was patience personified. Meanwhile the children, accus-
tomed to the severe discipline of their mother, no sooner
found themselves subjected to the milder sway of a stepmo-
ther, whose right to control them was, to say the least, doubt-
ful, since public opinion has made it such, now beret free
from all restraint, and revelled in the glorious privilege of
doing whatever they had a mind to do.
Poor Mrs. Sampson talked, and coaxed, and wept; and in
on or two instances even had the temerity to put a mother-
less child" down cellar; all to no purpose. They were as
unmanageable as a parcel of wild colts broken free from the
pasture, and antic with the first consciousness of freedom.
Mr. Sampson could not manage them, that was out of the
question ; he had never thought of doing it while their mo-
ther was alive, and how could he now that she was dead and
gone? Among the trials awarded to the Patriarch Job, it is
well perhaps that his sex precluded the possibility of his
passing the ordeal of a mother-in-law's lot. So thought the
second Mrs. Sampson. She had tried every thing, and now
her patience was completely exhausted. One day, just as
her husband was coming in to dinner, driven to desperation
by the accumulated din of so many ungovernable children,
she suddenly armed herself with a handful of hemlock tops,
and laid them about her on every side, at the same time or-
dering every child to a seat about the quickest. At this mo-
ment her husband entered, and, far from flinching, she reso-
lutely told him what she had done and what she meant to

do in future ere she would endure such an intolerable din.
Mr. Sampson was at once in fine spirits. His wife had never
looked half so handsome before. The children were as whist
as mice in a cheese. Mrs. Sampson absolutely kept her
word, and, though the neighbors pitied the children and
talked mournfully of the sorrows of power Mr. Sampson, from
that time he began to gain in flesh and spirits, and became
the sturdy good natured sort of a man I had formerly known
him. The recurrence of the old stimulus in the activity of a
wife's tongue had restored the buoyancy to his spirits and
health to his bones.
Such being the fact, I thought it best to write his history,
in the hope that persons witnessing a similar case would nsue-
pend their sympathies and reflect that, after all, the husband
of a scolding wife may be as happy as that of a good natured
one, and the spirited tones of her voice in scolding may be
quite as agreeable to such a husband's ear as the most dulcet
notes of the other in trilling a fashionable air.

A SCENE AT DtfMflA TON, (8coTitam.)

FaOM Ma. WSED'S LtrrTae.
At bumbarton there was a scene uas rich as that from which
Sir Walter Scott drew his first chapter of the Antiquary.
Passengers for Lch Lomond take coach here over to the
Lake, which ia five miles distant. The quiet town of Dum-
barton was invaded this morning with an unusual number
of viniters, to say nothing of dogs, luggage, &c. Extra con-
veyances bad to be provided. This created delay. The
" Dumbsrton Arms," as well as the "Coach for Luch Lo-
mond," rejoiced in Mrs Currie" as proprietress. There
was a gatileman with us who, with less perha"a of natural
hostility to womiankind" than Monkbarns, manifested the
same testy impatience that characterized the Anttquary's col-
loquy with Mrs. Macleuchar," whose placard assuied the
public that her coach for Queen'a Ferry" left Edinboroanh
promptly at 9 o'clock. This gentleman firat mildly urged
" Mrs. Currie" to hasten the departure o( the coach, which
she said would be" round to the stand in no lime." After
waiting a few minutes he rang the bell furiously, and when
the lady made her appearance the gentleman pointed to the
clock, with the remark that she had kept him twenty Oin-
utes too long, and that if he lost the steamer by her means
he would not pay hera baubee for the coach. She reiterated
the assurance that the coach would be round to the door by
the time the gentleman could get down stairs, and then re-
treated to her own dominions. The gentleman hastened to
the door and waited for a few minutes, when, there being no
sign of the coach, he returned to the sitting-roam, snd again
rang the bell. When "Mrs. Currie" appeared, he assailed
her with a volley of imprecations, an-!, while thbreaierning her
with pains and penalties for interrupting his visit to the
Trossachs, the coachman's horn announced that all wa.
" right," and the landlady marshalled her excited patron io
the door. But here an unexpected delay occurred. The
testy gentleman's son was missing I It was now "Mrs.
Carrie's" moment of triumph and revenge!I "The coach
canna wait, sir. It is o'er late noo.' But I cannot leave
my son 1" Its na my fault that your daft son ,s na here."
"Wait but a moment. Run after my son, boy; you shall get
a penny for it." Will you get intil the coach, air, or shall
I despatch it without you 1 The Emperor' will be half way
up the Loch before it gets there, and gentlemen will miss
their visit to the Troessachs." I entreat you to wait but a
minute, Mrs. Currie." "Awa' wi' your Mrs. Currie's; it is
but a moment since ye were misca'ing me an ugly old woman;
hut it is no use clavering here. The coach must be awe'.
You can wait another day for your near.do-well son." At
this critical moment the young gentleman was seen running
towards us with'a boy at his heels. During this scene the
other passengers were convulsed with laughter, and Mrs
Currie, while taking her revenge, in great apparent earnest.
ness, had muth difficulty to preserve the rigidity of her own
muscles. It turned out that the youth had indulged a very
natural desire to get asketch of Dumbarton Cdstle, and while
engaged in his drawing had forgotten the coach.

Extracted from a Pionter's Sketch Book.
JaseAsY, 1837.
HANOVZC COUNTT, VA.-This region of Virginia ais that
part of the lowlands of the State below the mountains, bound-
ed by Goobland county on the westerly aide, Henrioo on
the aouherly, New Kent and Carolin easterly, and Louisa
northerly, mnd watered by two large streams, branches of the
Pomonkey, two smaller tributaries to each branch ; the two
larger called the North Anna and South Anna rivers, and
the two smaller Little and Newfoundland rivers. The upper
lideof the junction of these streams has been called, from
time immemorial, the Forks of Hanover." On the South
Annau branch I saw standing, in 182b, rear Ground squirrel
bridge, the old church builr for and tor many years occupied
by the venerable SAMOIL DAviIa,(late President of Prince-
ton College, New Jersey,) who preached in thief region for
eleven years; and,just after Braddock's defeat in 1755, in the
following year, in haranguing troops to protect the frontiers
from the invading eavages, he pointed out the heroic youth
Ocoao WASMiNOTON (then C.ilonel) as reared up hy Di-
vine Providence to be the eaviour of his country. There are
many circumaiances well calculated to memorialize thibis region
of country. There yet stands, about two miles westal of the
Pomoukey river, on the road leading from Washington, via
Fredericksburg, to Richmond, the venerable Ald courthouse
in which Patrick Henry made his first essayv aa a public
speaker in Ihe Parson's case; and there stands the came old
tavern where Henry attended the bar, after his first marriage,
for hid father-in-law, and studied the statute laas of old
Virginia !
Almost half a century has intervened since I lefttbis region
S of country when but a lad; but, to soothe my mind and review
the hauntse of childhood, I have twice left the wilderness of
the West to visit, au a Western pioneer, my place of nativi-
ty, [not far from Mr. Ro. lulie's renowned Stashes of
NoU w ,M i the "rube of |IMa'erl" PATICS HENRY,
as well as HaNaR CLAT, wes born; but the whereabouts no
bhman being can new tell. But my fancy could almost
sketch a soliloquy on Henry, in the Parson's caee, when sur
r.unded by a gaping crowd that were carried away by the
first lightning strokes of this great natural orator. If it was so
frciblte as to toun and carry away an Englishman in thai
early day, an officer ofthe victorious Gen. Welfe's army, and
transform him into a patriot rebel, and enlist him in the
cause of the rebellion and of liberty, and march against and
drive the Royal Governor from Virginia, surely we need not
be surprised at its effects on his native countrymen ; and such
was the effect of his eloquence on my deceased father!
Ten or fifteen miles west or northwest of the courthouse,
and east of the South Anna, on the road leading from Rich-
m )od to Gharloitesville, we may find a place, though nothing
n itw more than an old farm, yet styled Srotchtown. Here re-
sided the illustrious patriot and tateLOIman at the breaking nut
of the American Revolution. Here his family resided, whilsi
Henry had to encounter many mental and personal afflc.
tiona known only to his family physician. Whilst his tow-
ering and maater-spirit weas arousing a nation to arms, his
aoul was bowed down and bleeding under the heaviest sor-
rows and personal distresses. His beloved companion had lost
her reason, and could only be restrained from self-destruction
by a strait-dress. I cannot reflect on my venerable de
ceased father's rehearsal of the particulars without feeling
myself almost a bleeding heart. It was such men that Al
mighty God raised up to assert and maintain our rights.
About the same distance from the courthouse, but situated
On the other branch of the Pomonkey, North Anna river,

force. at the siege if Yorktown. He, too, made sacrifices in
the cause, assumed the payment of the State debts, and lost
his earthly all. This place was visited by one of the French
commanders, the Marquis DE CnErETRTtUox, who give a

the Natural Bridge in Virginia. The last I heard of Oak.

son with his own hands, wa st ill growing. Losing this
estate, he at an early day moved to, lived, amd perhaps died,
'at Yorktown, where during the siege be had the cannon
painted at his own houses, then in possession of the enemy.

es," when nearly in sight of a place called the "Merry Oaks,"
on looking to the right you may perhaps see the ruins of an
old farm grown up with young pine trees. This is the birth-
place of Hantr CLAY, now called Harry of the West.
[Where, Mr. Hughes states, he and I were bornL, cloe to
the 'slashes' of old Hanover; he worked barefooted, and so
did I; he went to mill, and so did I."] Yes, and without
posing enromiurns, I was bmrn near there also, but in the
Forks ,of Hanover;" and, in addition to what Mr. H. has
remarked, the same year 1797 found us two Hanover boys in
the wild woods" of Kentucky ; and Mr. C., since that pe-
riod, has been drawn from the Western wilds, as well as from
"the slashes of Hanover," and stands before the American
People a jurist, a statesman, an orator, a patriot, and, as said
by one, as the noblest work of God," an honest man."

must's anchor, and caught in the act -On the 22d of Angart
the brig Rowna was lying in Legunyra Roads, the weather
perfectly calm. I discovered the vessel moving slowly about
among the ahippirg; I could not conceive what could be the
matter; I ordered to heave in and Meeif the anchor was gone,
bat it was not; but to my surprise I found a tremendous
monster entangled fast to the buoy-rope, and moving the an-
chor slowly along tIe bottom. I then had the fish towed on
shore; it was of a ilattiab shape, something like a devil fish,
but very curious shape, being wider than it war long, and
hamvlu stw-t.asis se each side ef the mouth, end a very
small tail in proportion to the fbsh. and exactly Irke a bat'v
tail. The tail can be seen on board the brig Rowena. The
dimensions of the fish were as follows: length from end of
the tail to end of the tusks 18 feet; from wing to wing 20 feet;
the mouth 4 feet wide, and its weight 3,500 Ibs.

In a New Orleans paper (the Courier) we find,
in a form imnpcrfectly translated from the Spanish,
the sequel of the letter (some time since published)
of the Mexican Secretary of State, Mr. BOCANEORA,
to our Minister to that Republic, complaining of the
inroads from Texas, as things for which this nation
is responsible. The translation of which we speak
offers General THoMPrsoN's reply and the rejoinder
of the Nexican. Both are ill translated ; but Ge-n-
THOMPSON's, ol' course, twice as ill as Mr. Boi A-
NEFGRt'S ; br he has first suffered probably no very
good version into Spanish, and the subsequent pas-
sage into very bad English has in many places made
a complete jumble of his meaning. VWe shall not,
therefore, do him the injustice of notv copying a
paper, thus deformed, thich we shall in due time
obtain in its proper shape; but will merely, for
public information, present its substance, as far as
we can arrive at it.
His excellency (Mr. THOMPSON says) is pleased
to state that, from the public papers of Texas and
Sthe proclamation of armistice of President Hous-
' TON, it appears that the Texian Gov.rnment has
' not authorized the reported invasion of Santa Fe,"
and that, "from that and other circumstances which
hbe does not mention, it is to be inferred that those
adventurers are citizens of the United States."
He (Mr. T.) was not aware that, thus far, any
positive information had been received, either as to
the reality of the invasion complained of, or any of
its particulars, or the official disavowal by the Pre-
sid-nt of Texas. He should, therefore, have been
glad that a complaint so grave could have been post-
poned until its grounds were understood.
Some of those unprincipled and loose rovers who
are found in all countries to trample on morality and
the laws may have joined themselves to an expedi-
tion of this sort. If such have, in this instance,
issued from the United States, in a manner to vio-
late her national relations to Mexico, his (Mr. T.'s)
Government will not only interpose her authority
to 'punish the fact, but will go as far as Mexico her-
self will go in securing the offenders.
He dues not, however, for a moment believe that
the expedition in question has been raised in the
United States, or proceeded from their territory.
His Excellency refers, as to this, to proofs drawn
from newspapers in the United States. But plain
principles of truth and evidence prescribe that, when
you accept a part of a witness's testimony, you must
take it all; and the papers in question directly aver
that the expedition is Texian-entirely Texian.
The commander is Col. Snively, a Texian; the
point from which it sets out is within that Republic;
and in every circumstance-the expedition is Texian.
Many persons from the United States may have
joined themselves to it; but so, too, Irishmen may
have done. But would the latter fact imply any
responsibility by Great Britain for this wrong ?
He persuades himself, therefore, that even if the
suppositions of Mr. BOCANEGRA be correct, he will,
on rmaturer consideration, abandon all serious thought
of Mexico's claiming of the United States indem-
nity for the expenses incurred in checking this in-

His Excellency has also referred to the late punc-
tual payment by Mexico of the stipulated indemnity
to citizens of the United States for spoliations, as
constituting a new claim upon the friendship and
faith of the latter. Certainly, the United States
not only recognize and respect all such titles to
their esteem, but they look with regard to Mexico's
care of her public honor, her fidelity to her na-
tional engagements ; and they render her for them
not only respect, but a sincere and deep interest
in the advances which she is making in the great
career of civil liberty. But he cannot recognize
as any additional claim upon his Government
Mexico's compliance with obligations to which
her public honor was pledged, and her failure to
fulfil which would cover her with eternal disgrace.
But if Mexico's fulfilment of her solemn promise
is a proof of friendly sentiments towards the United
States, the concession by the latter to Mexico of
fiveyears for the payment of a debt which might
have been claimed instantly, is a far stronger pledge
of our good will. He can assure Mr. BOCANEGRA
that these are altogether the feelings entertained by
the United States towards Mexico-as a proof of
which, and of the desire of our Government to dis-
pense all possible protection, as well to the Mexi-
cans as to the Americans engaged in the commerce
between the two countries, it has ordered Col.
HARtNEY, with a regiment of dragoons, to be sta-
tioned on the route between Santa Fe and the
United States. He assures the Secretary that he
will lose no time in transmitting his note to the
United States Government; pledging himself, at
the same time, that as soon as any certain intelli-
gence is received in regard to 4he alleged invasion,
his Government will vindicate its relations with
Mexico and its conduct.
Mr. BOCANnORA'S reply re-states the complaint
and its proofs, which he considers clear and logical.
If the American legation had not received authentic
particulars of the invasion, the Mexican Govern-
ment had, and knew how to appreciate their cer-
tainty. He then says :
The history of the revolution of Texas, and the causes
influencing the proclamation of a separation from Mexico,
are at notorious as public, and have supplied aa many grounds
forcomplaint on the part of Mexico against citizens of the

United States as any thing that has occurred since, up to
this invasion. Citizens of the United States almost altogether
composed, and do compose the population of the department
now styled Texas and Texians. Those who subscribed the
articles of independence, with but few exceptions, were na-
tives of the said States, and in them the spirit of insurrection
was fomented and the views and plans against the territory of
the Republic projected."
We need not further pursue the iteration of these
complaints. The following is, however, the mate-
rial part of the letter-the part which is to the point
of the present grievance :
"Colonel Snivley is called a Texian--but is he onel
This position cannot be maintained; he is a native of the
United States, and the name which he gives himself does not
lessen the crime he has committed in raising armed bands
against the Mexican Republic from Ihe United States. If in
those Slates the present adventurers were raised, in them
likewise were procured the munitions of war. Independence,
in Missouri, was the starting point of these men; the place
where the laws of nations wee trodden upon belongs to the
United States, which country also gave birth to these com-
patriots in am. The piess of the said States can well say

thai the expedIltion is Taxian, entirely Terlaen ; that the chief
who commands it in a Texian ; and that the point of rendea-
vous Is in Texas I But what proofs Can these periodicals
bring forward in the face of such overwhelming evidence l
By assigning to this or that one some other place of nativity 1
Because the expedition has proceeded from the north towards
the frontier of Mexico, it must be Texian ; although those
composing it have come from the United States. Perhaps
Independence belongs lt Texas I Is it not in Miss ,nr, and
is not that a part of the United States 1 These facts, toge-
ther with the intelligence received by the Chief Magistrate
of the Republic, give the clearest right to the undersigned to
use the leims or phrases in the note of the 'i[t July last,

rERMtONT ERECT.-Notwithistanding the unfavor-
able results of elections in a majority of the Slates,
tho progress of Locofolcoism is again stayed in Ver-
Iont. Sufficient returns have been received to
show that our opponents are occupying no better
grounds than last year. In the aggegate vote on
the State ticket, which we give from 184 towns as
compared with last year, both Whigs and Locus
have fallen away from sixteen to eighteen hundred
votes, while the third party has advanced over twelve
hundred. Probably there will be no election of Governor
and Lieutenant Governor. Last year the majority for Psine,
over all, was but 908 by the people. But the msj.iriy ot,
Whigs in the Senate has been increased by two additional
in Franklin county, one in Chittenden, and we hope two in
Bennington. Many changes in the representation in the
House have occurred ; but little doubt remains that we shall
be as strong in joint ballot as last year, and probably a little
stronger. Last year we had 31 majority.
In the 54 towns not heard from on the Governor's vote,
Paine (Whig) last year had 3,678, Smilie (Locotoco) 3,659,
Williams (abolitionist and scattering) 275; Paine's majority
was 908. Ranney, Lieutenant Governor, 2,662; Spaulding,
Treasurer, 1,768. The probability is that Spaulding is the
only one elected on the State ticket.
In the 1st and 3d Congressional districts Messrs. MARsn
and FOOTS have been elected. In the 2d and 4th districts it
is doubtful whether DILLINOHAM or COLLAMCR have been
elected. In Dillingham's district many Locofocos voted for
PECK, and in Collamer's many Whigs voted for EVERETT
and TRACY.
Thus every branch of Government will still be retained by
the Whigs for the year ensuing. This victory is more gra-
tifying as our fears had been somewhat excited by the clamor-
ous and exulting efforts of our opponents. The machinery
of the party was put into powerful operation to muster their
forces and make recruits. But the confidence of the people
in Whig principles here and elsewhere could not be shaken
by their arts or arguments. The infamous slanders put forth
by the Age and kindred organs of the party against the old
veteran, their secret endeavors to undermine our strength by
fomenting third.partyism, and the thin disguises assumed by
their leaders just before the election to cloak their hostility to
the tariff, were all equally unavailing. Locofocoism in Ver-
mont again bites the dust, and, deo juvante, the same destiny
awaits it in 1844.


The Convention of the "Democracy" of Massa-
chusetts met at Worcester on Wednesday. ISAAC
DAVIS, of Worcester, was chosen President. A
strong difference of opinion in relation to men, says
the Boston Mercantile Journal, was exhibited by the
delegates, and the discussions occasionally assumed
an impatient and angry tone, which more than once
menaced discord and confusion. Among the most
prominent of the delegates were JOHN A. BOLLES,
Secretary of State, who was a zealous advocate of
the interests of Mr. VAN BUREN, and B. F. HAL-
LETT, of the Executive Council, who led on the
party which were favorable to Mr. CALHOUN.
MARCUS MORTON and H. H. CHILDS were nomi-
nated for re-election to the office of Governor and
Lieutenant Governor, and an interminable string of
verbose resolutions, prepared by Mr. HALLETT, in
which the question relating to the Presidential can-
didate was adroitly waived, were adopted. The
Van Buren test of the true character of the Conven-
tion was applied, however, in the vote for two dele-
gates at large to represent the State in the Balti-
more National Convention, which resulted as
follows :
Whole number of ballots 531
Van Buren Ticket.
George Bancroft, of Boston 335
Henry H. Childs, of Pittsfield 317
Calhoun Ticket.
Wells Lathrop, of Hadley 186
Benjamin F. Hallett, of Boston 185
It is thus seen that the star of Mr. VAN BUREN is
in the ascendancy.

has been retained as counsel for the heirs of Ste-
phen Girard, in connexion with General JONES, of
Washington, and a gentleman of the Bar of Bal-

would be unavailing, and fears are entertained for his safety.

BUFFALO, (N. Y.) SEPT. 14, 1843.
or drunken man, whosename we have not been able to learn,
committed a most outrageous assault upon his fellow-travel-
lers last night. It appears that when about five miles from
town, a person who was seated in the 2d class carn on the
Attica road made a deadly assault upon the other passengers;
during which one or more were dangerously injured. A
feeble invalid named J. H. Mathews, of Painesville, Ohio,
who was returning from Saratogo, was stabbed in the right
side between the fifth and sixth ribs by same unknown in-
strument, probably ajlack knife, and now lies in a c,tical
state at the Buffalo House. Another poison named Lewis
Janes, residing in Chautauqua county, was also badly
wounded in the arm and side, and it is believed that the per-
son accompanying the deranged man has also received seri-
ous injury. Of this, however, little is known, as he is now
in pursuit of the fiend, who leaped from the car after commit-
ting the outrage.
The assault was evidently the act of sudden impulse, and
as there was no light in the car, the passengers were left en-
tirely at the mercy of their assailant. Doctors White and
Wilcox were professionally called, and entertain an .pinion-
that Mr. Mathews will survive, although his wound, taken
in connexion with his feeble state of health, renders bis case
critical. Mr. Janes was able to proceed on his journey after
having his wound dresed.-CCmn, Ads.

Mv DDEA SIR : I amB directed by the Democratic Whig
General Committee of the city of New York, as their chair-
man, to convey to you their deep and most affectionate con-
dolence in the severe illness which has so suddenly (but we
would hope temporarily) checked your useful and honorable
While we bow with resignation and submission to the will
of Heaven, which has paralyzed the arm so often extended
inAupport of the nation's honor and the people's rights, and
caused to falter the tongue whose eloquence was wont to
be exerted in Ithe cause of patriotism and public virtue, we
would humbly express our gratitude that the immortal mind,
the brightest emanation of the Deity, is still permitted to oc-
cupy its earthly throne.
The melancholy duty assigned to me is alleviated in some
degree by the reflection that your character and services are
duly appreciated by the highly respectable body of your fellow-
citizens whom I have the honor to represent, and by the op-
portunity which it affords me of uniting with them in prayers
lor the speedy and effectual restoration of your health. 1
Aami dear sir, with respect and affection, your friend,

ALBANY, SePTeMBeR 10, 1843.
M%1 DEsR SIR: I have received your letter of the 6th inst.
communicating an expression of feeling on the part of the
Wnig G,eneral Cjmmittee of the city of New York in re-
spect to the severe attack by which I have been recently
piroaitated, srd from which I still continue to suffer.
I will not trust myself in the attempt to respond to the
kindnsss which prompted this action on the part of the com-
mittee-it would only renew the emotions excited by the first
perusal of your letter: emotions which caused me more
pleasure, and at the same time more pain, than 1 have ever
before experienced. To have been so affectionately remem-
bered by the companions and friends who think with me on
public affairs, was a source of joy to me sincere and deep be-
yond the power of words to convey to you. But this senti-
ment only served to aggravate the regret with which I find
myself even temporarily separated from such faithful alli-
ances and genial associations, and constrained to be, for a
while at least, an inactive but not uninterested spectator of
the contest.
My heart is in the great cause to which we are mutually
pledged, and in its glorious success I look anxiously for a
demonstration to the world that Republics are not always
unjust nor ungrateful.
Go on vigorously, I beseech you, in the great work which
you have commenced, in the hope of whose accomplishment
millions of hearts beat in unison with yours. The good old
cause again calls you into the field-the cause which has
been once betrayed, but has never yet been stained with dis-
honor. With a candidate who embodies your principles,
and who will be false to forty years of public service if he is
not true to them and to you, I believe that, with the blessing
of that over-ruling Providence, in whose hands are the des-
tinies of nations as well as the issues of life, you will achieve
a more brilliant victory in the name of CLAY than you won
under the banner of HARRISON.
Please accept for yourself, my dear sir, and present to the
committee, whose organ you are, my thanks for your most
kind remembrance, and assurance of the warm regard and
sincere affection with which I remain your friend,
PHILIP HONE, Chairman.
We are happy to learn, by a letter of the latest date, that
Mr. HALL is rapidly recovering, and that his entire restora-
tion may be anticipated.

name we forbear publishing, as she has evilenlly been made
a victim to family disturbances, who was charged-with open-
ing a letter addressed to a young man named T-, whose
family occupied a portion of the same house with the accused.
The letter was delivered at the house in May last, and was
opened by the lady without looking at the address, presuming
it was for her husband. As soon as she discovered the mis-
take, shbe delivered the letter to the proper person, explaining
how she happened to open it. Every thing went on very well
until some disturbance took place between the two families,
when this charge was raked up, and the lady brought before
the United States Commissioner on the grave charge of wil-
fully opening a letter not intended for her. After a full hear-
ing of all the evidence Mr. T- could muster, Mr. BAR-
RSTT, the deputy District Attorney, directed her to be dis-
charged, as there was not the slightest ground to suspect her
of criminality. When this decision was pronounced, Mr.
T- was made to look exceedingly sheepish, when the lady
tendered him her hand in presence of the spectators, and cor-

We have lately read two new novels, both from authors of
what is called great fertility, namely, Sir EDWsaD L BurLwn

As Boilean sings, that is to say-
Romance tiou cSn'st make fast as newspaper column ;
For each day gives a chapter, each month a new volume.
The tales to which we just now refer, and up-i each of
which we have flung away, in a sort of inte-llictual debauch,
a night (all that we ever give to a novel) are Bulwer'a Last
of the Barons" and James's "False'Heir."
Of neither can we say any thing very bad or any thirg
very good. They are not warm, they are not cold ; they are
not absolutely dry, but yet cost our eyes no rivulets; they are
neither tender nor tough. In short, the defect to which they
most nearly approach is that of which Voltaire says,
"Le pire de tons lea genres, c'est le genre ennnyeux,"
for indeed the worst fault that a novel can have (written as
it is solely to amuse) is that it is unamusing.
Mr. JAMEs, in spite of his still vaster productiveness, holds
out better than his rival. Indeed, he might be said, in the
language of the turf, to have not much speed but great bottom;
his earlier novels displayed no high powers-were merely a
fair merchantable article of romance: his latter are neither
better nor worse. Even Sir Walter Scott wrote himself out.
D'Israeli's first book (his Vivian Grey) was far his best.
Bulwer (like all others of the present day) has written worse
the more reputation he got. No mine has yet been discover-
ed that could not be worked out. Scott and Potosi both
failed at last, after having filled Europe with silver, and
brought down its circulating value. But the others were
liker to those Irish mines of which Moore speaks, that prom-
ised much upon the surface but grew poor as soon Mas you
attempted to dig into them.
These had a vein, not very rich in some of them-not in-
exhaustible in any, when-delved into without any intermission
of authorship. The greater gift of continuance," which
James displays, is certainly no native abundance, no vein, no
genius. Talent he might be said to have less than any of
them; but that, in reality, talent is that which makes itself
resources, and whether or not originally vivid, attains by
labor, cultivation, art, the purposes of talent, and regularly
and unimformly pleases or instructs. James joins to sonre
cleverness the faculty of selecting good material and working
it up with a certain artist-like goodness of general execution.
He is not a great painter, like the mighty inventors in that
art; nor even a great engraver, like the Morghens or others
who copied them by a noble and a difficult process, so differ-
ent as to demand a high originality ; but he is rather a litho-
grapher, producing with great rapidity cheap resemblances of
great works.
His books are, for the greater part, skilful enough selec-
tions from the elder chroniclers, Froissart, Brantome and
others; or from Barante and those abler historians of the
present day, who have, by consummate research, reproduced
from neglected sources the events and the personages of other
times with a minuteness and a truth which give to their la-
bors almost the charm and the picturesqueness of those which
described the men of the middle ages from the actual life. In
this Scott showed him the way and the materials. His man-
ner and his spirit are as merely imitative as his subjects. Yet
he has contrived to make a great quantity of readable ro-
mance, having in reality produced no absolutely good book
nor no downright bad one.
Two fresh tales of Miss BaeMsR have also appeared,
"The President's Daughters" and its sequel Nina." Of
these (thanks to the care of the publishers) we have received
the latter; but as yet (occupied in something better) without
the power to do more than glance at it. It is again (like the
preceding versions from this aurora borealis of northern ro-
mance) Englished by Mary Howitt, in whom the lucky lite-
rary destinies of the Swedish lady seem to have supplied her
the fittest possible translator.
The present book seems-to possess, as yet with little abate-
ment, the peculiar charm of Miss Bremer-her freshness,
sweetness, and her life-like delineation of whatever is engag-
ing in private, domestic life. Of the degree of interest which
the tale affords we are, of course, unable to speak. In that
it may fail; for she seems to us to write the history of a real
family, perhaps her own, and is probably pursuing it too far.
All the preceding have been placed upon our table by Mr.
Franck Taylor.
We are also indebted to the publishers, Carey & Lea, for
copies of their cheap publication of Cooper's novels, a re-
print of The Last of the Mohicans," and his new frontier
tale "Wyandotte, or the Hutted Knoll." They are all in
paper covers, at twenty-five cents the volume.
ULES, MULES!-Just arrived, fourteen head of
three-year old Mules, the finest selection ever brought to
this market. They stand from t5i to 16 bands high ; which I offer
for sale low. They may be seen at my stable, on Fourteenth

TaE MM ca aNICAL RirLiMLEN, under the command of Capt.
McCLELLAND, having postponed their military visit to Ar-
lington last Tuesday (the 12th of September) on account of
the inclemency of the weather, left this city about 10 o'clock
yesterday morning in five boats appropriately decorated with.
banners. The Company turned out well, and made a sol
dierlike appearance as they marched, with music nd ban-
ners, along our principal streets to the place of eimbrkation.
This company of Riflemen are a fine body of men, and
their marching appeared to us to merit the highest praise.
TaE ODD FILL0oW of the District turned out yesterday
morning in great numbers to attend the dedication of the
Grand Lodge at Baltimore. To the regular train ware
added four extra cars, which were well filled with passen-
gers, and left the depot in handsome style at 6 o'clock im
the morning.
THE MoaoAM RIFLE COMPANY, under the command of
Capt. DOVS-ALL, who make their excursion down the Potomao
this morning, intend on their return to join the Tea Party
at Carusi's Saloon for the benefit of St. Vinoeamt's Orphan
Asylum. It is to be hoped that the poor orphans of this ex-
cellent charity will derive considerable pecuniary benefit
from this Tea Party, where music and refreshments of every
kind will be liberally provided.

THz SnipwRECK, a Painting, by Mr. Oibson, of
I have been to see this exquisite work of kn exquisitely
modest man. It is a cabinet picture, and represents the sink-
ing of a vessel in the midst of the ocean. The clouds are
rolling in heavy masses above, and their shape, tone, and
aceton are strikingly sublime. Alone the horizon, which in
broken by the swelling billows, scuds a vessel that has out-
rode the storm. In thie centre of the scene, on the back of &
wave, the wrecked barque, with her broken meat, rent sail,
and hapless crew plunges headforemost to its fate. The
truth ot ihis picture is striking; the naturalness of the wa-
ter, the wind that is in the clouds, the position of the vessels,
the grouping of the figures, the total simplicity, indicate a high
oider ot talent. This notice is not to designate an opportunity
to purchase, for the picture is not for sale. I write simply to
discharge a duty to a man of genius, whose extreme modesty
keeps him back. Gaudy pictures are all the rage. GinsoMts
is one ot the nature-loving artists, who paints with truth,
and I would be happy if he would adopt a suggestion I have
u.1ten made to him, and paint a large and finished landscape
for public exhibition. Contented with the toilsome task of
instruction, his ambition seems to have closed its wings ever
si,,ce ihe a-complishment of histwo large panoramic vtewsof
Niagara and Quebec.
To the writer of this he has long been known, and to
many others more competent to understand his genius, and
the common regret is that he does not step forward with one
of his truthful and delicate landscapes, and aet the public
taste right with regard to judgment on landscape paintings.
Until such true spirited men as DOOaHTY, 9t1So4, SHaw,
and others of their class are estimated in this country the art
of landscape painting will never flourish. The realm o ta,'e
is occupied by quacks, whose brushes are dipped in unmintiga-
ted vermilion, and reek with the overwhelming intensity of
Prussian blue.
Whoever questions the truth of these remarks will please
visit the galleries and exhibitions throughout the country,
and then turn into the painting rooms of the poetic and
classical DOCGHTY, the quiet and serene GiaoNr, or the vera-
cious SHAw. At all events, will our city judges go and see
the little picture, 12 by 16, of GiasON, which he properly calls
"The Storm atSea 1" -

the kind in ihi< or ,imy otier country ; and although mainly de-
votedl I., tiit interests and wants of the commercial and business
comr.rantiy, 1it be- become aon indispensable work of reference to

Mercantile and Maritime Law, the Laws and Regulations of Trade,

published from time to time in this Magazine, which is also the
repository for full and authentic Statistical Tables of the Com-
merce, Trade, Navigation, Resources, Population, Banking or
Currency of the United States and the principal countries of the
civilized world.
It has and will continue to be the aim of the Editor and Pro-
prietor of the Merchants' Magazine to avoid every thing of a par-
ty, political, or sectional bias or bearing in the conduct of the
work-opening its pages to the free and fair discussion of antago-
nistic doctrines connected with'the great interests of Commerce,
Agriculture, Manufactures, and the Currency.
The Merchants' Magazine is published on the first of every
month, at five dollars per annum, payable in advance. Apply to

sale the place of my late residence, in the county of Sorry,
known as "Pour Mile Tree." This property includes about
1,000 acres, and is situated on James river, about five miles above
Jamestown, and is one of the most ancient residences in Virginia.
There are about four hundred acres under cultivation, the whole
of which has been marled with the best shell marl, at the rate of
250 to 3110 bushels to the acre, and is in a greatly improved condi-
tion. An inexhaustible supply of rich marl underlies the whole
tract, and is found in convenient situations for use in each field.
The soil is much stiffer than that of the generality of lands in
Surry, and is consequently susceptible of being made the most
productive wheat and corn land, by the continued use of time and
clover, together with a suitable rotation of crops. Prom 5 to 600
acres of the tract are in wood, chiefly original forest, including
much fine timber for staves, building, and fuel. About 150 acres
of original forest land, lying level, and adjoining the arable land,
might be cleared, marled, and brought into cultivation-the steam-
boat wood and lumber from which, beingasleable at the landing,
would at once repay the expense of the improvement.
The farm houses are all new, ample, and convenient, hav-
ing been rebuilt in the best manner within the last five or
six years. They consist of a comfortable framed Overseer's
house and kitchen, four large double negro quarters, with brick
chimneys, and affording sixteen comfortable rooms, two framed
barns, a framed stable and twelve horses, carriage house, corn
cribs, &c.
The dwelling house,ofbrick,is spacious,elegant,and handsomely
situated on the south bank of the river, commanding an extensive
and beautiful water prospect where the river is several miles in
width. There are eight rooms, fo-ir on a floor, besides passages,
closets, lockroom, ample cellars, a handsome green-house, and a
tasteful Ionic portico on each front. The offices are new and
complete, including kitchen, wash -room, dairy, ice-house, meat.
house, lumber-house, and servants' rooms. The yard is
handsome and newly enclosed, and a beautifully falling garden,
filled with select shrubbery and fruit, adjoins the house on the
river front. The house and offices are in complete order, having
been thoroughly repaired or rebuilt within the last six or seven
years, at an expense of upwards of $5,6000, altogether rendering
the place one of the most elegant and desirable residences in lower
If not sold privately before the 25th of October, it %,il be sold
publicly on the premises on that day. One-third of the purchase
money will be required in cash, upon delivery of the property;
for the balance, an extended credit can he obtained, if desired,
bygiving satisfactory security.
On the same day, if fair, if not the next fair day, will be sold,
on the premises, the household and kitchen furniture, the crops
of corn and oats, the stock of horses, cattle, sheep, and hogs, to.
gether with the plantation implements. Terms of payment for
purchasers of personal property will he made known on the day
of sale.
Persons wishing to examine the property will receive every

This watering place, from the quality of the water as well as
the convenience of its location, is destined to attain great and
deserved celebrity. The facility of reaching it from Baltimore

Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, and
Maine have had their representatives.
Mr. Jordan's excellent table, unsurpassed in the quality of the
fare and the style of serving it up, and his untiring efforts to

Chemistry at the Medical College of this city:
WAsHINGTON, JAsrvAnY 28, 1843.
Mr. Joseph E. Hover: Sir: I have made use of your Black
Ink sufficiently long to ascertain that it possesses ell the desira-
ble qualities which are necessary in the employment of steel pens
more fully than any kind of ink that I had previously essayed,
and I have got pretty well through the .catalogue. I have not
taken the trouble to test it chemically, as this has been already
done by ethers whose certificates are as satisfactory to me as
though the experiments had been made by myself.

WAeHIrGrTON, JANUARY 28, 1843.
Mr. Joseph E. Hover: Sir : I have examined and used a part
of the specimen of ink which you left with me, and am prepared
to speak favorably of them both. Since I began to use metallic
pens, I have never been able to obtain ink which would not more
or less corrode, and speedily destroy them Yours appears to
be free from every corrosive ingredient. The marking ink pos-
sesses, in my opinion, all the qualities which are requisite to give
to the article a very high character. Yours, respectfully,

The remarkable healthfulness of Winchester, its great advan-
tages as to religious instruction, and the facility of access ti it,
(having daily or tri weekly conveyances running in almost every
direction,) render it worthy the notice of those who have sons or
wards to educate to make inquiry at least concerning its acade-
my before sending them elpewbere.
For further particulars, reference may be made to any of the
gentlemen forming the Board of Visiters, or to Rev. W. M. At-
kinson, Winchester, Va. The Pr ncipal also begs to refer to
Rev. Dr. Alexander, Princeton, N. J.; to Hon. Judge Baldwin,
of the Court of Appeals, and to Rev. J. McElroy, Staunton, Va.

At a meeting of the Board of the Winchester Academy on
Monday, the 7th day of August, 1843, it was unanimously
Resolved, That the Board take pleasure in recommending this
instution to parents and guardians. The Principal, Mr. SMYTH,
came with the highest recommendations as a classical and mathe-
matical scholar and instructor; and from our observation since he
has had charge of the academy, and the recitations of the pupils at
the late examinations, we think he has improved the school and
sustained his reputation. His assistant, Mr. lawis is well quali-
fied for the situation he holds.
This Institution can now afford upon reasonable terms a sound
academical education; the town is surpassed, by none in health-
fulness ; boarding is cheap and comfortable; and we are aware of
no obstacles here to the formation of moral, industrious, and gen-
tlemanly habits in the youth who may be thus separated from
parents. OBED WAIfE, President.

EDEN ISLAND FOR SALE, situated in the Poto
mac river, about twenty-five miles above Washington and
Georgetown, in the county of Montgomery, Maryland.
This beautiful tract contains about 360 acres of cleared land,
and has long been celebrated as one of the most fertile and pro-
ductive islands of the upper Potomac. The soil is of fine allu-
vial quality, perfectly inexhaustible, and capable in its present
condition of yielding ten barrels of corn per acre through its
whole extent. Its adaptation to the growth of tobacco, wheat, and
hemp is not less remarkable. The land is now in good order,
having been cultivated on the alternating system, and would yield
at once a rich return to the hand of the industrious agriculturist.
The healthiness of the situation has been thoroughly tested by a
residence of several years. Every convenience for immediate
occupation would be found on the premises, consisting of a com-
modious and moderately sized brick dwelling house, ice-house,
pump of excellent water, barn, stables, and quarters, most of
them new and all in good condition. A large and thrifty orchard
of peach trees yields fruit plentifully. Fuel in endless abundance
is supplied by the majestic growth of trees which skirt the whole
island, at once giving beauty to the scenery and stability to the
shores. The latter have been found, in fact, rapidly to extend
from the deposit of earth left by the waters. It may be added
that the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, being almost at the door,
affords ready access to the markets of the District, by water,
throughout nearly the entire year.
