THE LEADER.
AN INFIDEL'S COIiVEBSION.
ftev. James 0. Andrew, in a letter many
? years ago to the late Bishop McKendree, "gives
the following account of an infidel's conversion.
It may inspire new faith in some pious mother,
who hts been praying for many years for the
conversion of her children;
Mr. Howard had been an in?Tdel about twen
ty year?, during which he seldom attended the
H??sa of God, insomuch that he observed to
me after his conversion, that he had heard but
threa sermons in' six years. -The world
had been the sole object of his pursuit,
and ha had succeeded in amassing a considera
ble quantity of its wealth. He was in this
situation in the beginning of 1817.
' Jie possessed among a cumber of other slaves
one named Peter, who usually attended to his
cattle, e#d in whom he reposed considerable
ci>nM*nce. Peter had been for many years a
* faithful member of th? Methodist church. Some
.tima in the early part of the above-named year
Peter died. When he saw the corpse Mr How
ard waa struck with astonishment,-for he had
seen him in health, perhaps, only the day be
fore ha beheld the lifeless clay,-and exclaimed;
J?My God ! Potter, **e you dead ? "
At tba* moment, he says, the reflection came
into his mind : M Yes ; yes, you are dead, but
you are happy, But how can this be ? If you
are happy, I am wrong." He banished the re
flection from his mind, but it returned again
andagai*.
At length he rcsolvedto search the Scriptures
for himself, ead see if there was a sufficiency of
cogent -reasoning rn the Bible to convince him
of iu truth. He would, during this ex*mina
tion, re,a? no other religious books, nor con
"verse with an; religious person, but confined i
his examination and reading altogether to the j
Bible. !
After thus reeding and examining for four cr
five months, he became fully coavir.ced cf the
authenticity of the Scriptures. This took place
on Sabbath morning, about eleven a'clock.
About one o'clock, he sat down ?nd wrote a
full recantation of his former principles in a
letter to one of his most intimate associates in
. Deism, requesting him to make it known io his
former companions in infidelity, exhorting them
to search for themselves.
He next morning called his femily together
hnd made known to them the changa which
had taken place in his mind. He said : "We
iave all ser vea the devil together, and, if we
do not repent, we.shall all perish/' From that
morning he commenced family prayer.
Comparing his life with the sacred Word, he
now began to feel that he was a wretched sin
ner, and that something more was necessary
than a simple admission of the truth of the
Scriptures. He felt that he must be bom
again, and began to cry mightily to God. Af
. ter seeking thus earnestly for about a fortnight,
being ih great distress, he sent out on t Sab
bath morning, and calling together his neigh
bors, uddrc??vttd tVt^m to this tifect : "You who
have an interest ata throne of grace, I hsve
eollected you together that you may prey for
me ; and you that do not pray, I wish you to
witness the condition of one infidel."
They began to pray about ten o'clock, and
tontinued in prayer till about two, when the
Lord spoke peace to his soul , and gave him the
witness of his acceptance. Shortly after tais
he came to Wilmington, and in the presence of
his former companions, united with our socie
ty, and has ever since seemed to an joy the life
and power of religion.
It may, perhaps, be proper tfc observe that
his mother had been praying for hi"? about
forty years; that during all that time she had
seen only one of her childred converted ; but
tow the Lord gave her to see her ^hole family
gathered into the church in tae spaae af tnro
months.
SEEING THBOUGC WATER.-The latest num
ber of the Edinburgh Review says: M Currents
in the very bed of a river, cr beneath the sur
face, of the sea, may be watched, as Mr. Camp
bell informs us, by an arrangement that smug
glers used in the old days. They sank taeir
contraband cargo when there was aa alarm, and
they searched foi it again by the help of a sa
ealled marine telescope. It was nothing ?ore
than a ca>k with a plate of strong glass at tke
bottom vl The. man plunged tkt closed end a
few inches below the surface, and put his kead
into the other end*, and then he saw clearly iato
the. waterv The glare end confused reflections
and refractions from and through ike riwplei
aurface of the sea were entirely shut out by this
contrivance. Seal hunters still use it. With
this simple apparatus tte stirring life of the sea
bottom can be seen at leisure with great dis

Which point out the directions in which cur

a boat's side, peering into a new world, and the
interest grows. There is excitement in watch

their sea weed forests after a white fly sunk to

fallows is. better fun when plainly seen," (Val.

PLANTATION BITTERS.
? ? # * * * * *
A great many side hits are being made at the Plantation
Bitters by a score or two of disinterested friends who
have endeavored to imitate or counterfeit them. Ifs all
of no use. The people won't be long imposed upou. The
Plantation Bitters are increasing in use and popularity
every day, and "that's what's the matter." They are in
same size bottle, and made Just as they were at first, and
will continue to be, or we shall stop making them.
Tlie Plantation Bitters purify, strengthen and invigor
ate.
They create a healthy appetite.
They are an antidote to change of water and diet.
They overcome effects of dissipation and late hours.
They strengthen the system and enliven the mind.
They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers.
They purify the breath and acidity of the stomach.
They cure dyspepsia and constipation.
They cure diarrcea, cholera and cholera morbus. .
They cure liver complaint and nervous headache,
They make the weak strong, the languid brilliaut, and
are exhausted nature's great restorer. The recipe and
lull circular arc around each bottle. Clergymen, mer
chants, and persons whose sendentary habits induce weak
ness, lassitude, palpitation of the heart, lack of appetite,
distress after eating, liver complaint, constipation, etc..
will find immediate and permanent relief in these bitters.
But above all, they are recommended to weak and deli
cate females and mothers.
They are sold by all respecta' merchants. See that
each bottle has our private Unit States stamp over the
cork and steel plate side label.
Beware of refilled bottles. See bat the stamp has not
b*en tampered with. Any per,. ,n pretending to sell
Plantation Bitters by the gallon is a swindler and impos j
ter, and should be Immediately reported to us.

SO wide is the field of ita usefulness and so numerous are

dangerous affections of the pulmonary organs that are inci
