"There is one restless spirit among them

heart, and pines and sickens in an agony
which none but himself can know or feel.
I mean Osceola (Powell,) or, as he and all

se-o-la. From the time I have spent with
this chief, and the familiar interviews I
have had with him in conversation, I have
been able to form a pretty correct notion of
the feelings and character as well as the
history of this extraordinary man. A Creek
by birth, he left his tribe whilst a boy. and
sought an asylum amongst the Seminoles,
where he has been reared, & where he has
flourished since. His father was a white
man by the name of Powell, who abandon
ed him and sent him a vagrant upon the
world to cater for himself. He soon became
a favourite amongst the Semtiinoles; and
from his force of character and genius alone
he has risen to the highest honors of the
"From such facts, it appears that he is
entirely "a self made man," and one of an
extraordinary character, which is conclu
sively proved by the fact that he is acknowl
edged and followed by all time chiefs. Tho'
he is but a demi savage in blood, yet he
speaks not a word in English; and in his
uctions and feelings is as perfect an Indian

QUACK MF.DICI Ns.-The advertisement
of various quack medicines which are now
in vogue, are well hit off in the following
extract from a puff in a late Cincinnati pa

ate all appetite in the most delicate stomach,
or physic a horse. They will be found to
give a rich flavor to apple dumplings, and
a peculiar zest to pickled oysters; they will
thicken soup; reduce corpulent persons, and
are excellent bait for mouse traps. One pill
dissolved in a bucket of rain water will be
found a perfectly water proof lining for
canal emhankments; placed in steamboat
boilers, they will effectually prevent their
bursting, and greatly increase the speed of
the boats. As for their medicinal qualities
they are justly entitled to be called "Medi

remedy approved by grace--for they effec

Vitus, dance; they purify the pimples in the
small pox, and radiate the red gum in
teething: they reduce white swelling and
cure the black jaundice, blue devils, yellow
scarlet, or any other colored fevers; they
cure also the thrush in children and the pip
in liens, the staggers in horses, and the
nightmare in owls. But further enumera

this medicine is a combination upon new

prietor's immortal grandmother, and are an
exception to all the rules ofscience, common
sense, and experience, so that while they

met .with otie disulaiying more hardhihmood
than the following, n hieh though it hap
pened nmatny years ago, and was related to
us by an eye witnmess, we have never seen
in print. Mr. Spritg hadl a farm on an
Island in Snieo Itiver, from which lie built
a bridge to thme tmain land, where it would
encroachi on the land of hi., neighhonmr, Mr.
Doninett. Thue channel was tnot very broamd
and a few rodls below were someit conssider
able fulls. Spritig built abuttmenits, mand
laid the strinig pieces ; but Deninett camne ini
the night and tore thtem down. Spritng
naiturally etiraged, threatened that if hie did
it agin, lie should answer fhr it to him
personmall y. Utnawedl by his tireat, no soon
er were the beamus [again laid on n'>uittments
that hec destroyed so much of the works as
to leuive but one strinug piece remaining.

threats, Spring chamllenmged IDennemt, to mor

"I'll take a keg. of powder with a lighted
candle, and carry it on the center of that
string-piece. Yqm shall sit down on one
endand I on the other till the casidle burns
down to the powder. That will be the
best test of our courage."
The terrible proposal was agreed to.
The frail timber bent beneath them as
they coolly walked out and placed the keg
in the middle, over the roaring flood below,
stuck the blazing candle into it. and sat
down to watch its burning. Hundreds were
gathered du each side awaiting id'breath

more and more nervous,, wriggling on his
seat, and looking one way and another.
At last when the flame was half an inch
from the surface. he could keep still no lon
ger, but incontinently got up and made his
escape. Dennett, who had throughout
displayed the. utmost coolness, now very
carefully took the blazing candle out of
the cask, threw it into the water, and with
the powder as his prize went ofi in the op

bridge was forever abandoned.--Buifalo
Post Master Franklin.-In 1754, Benj.
Franklin was Post Master under Govern
tent, with their permission to make "6000
pounds continental money if he could," out
of the whole Post Office Department in
America. The very next year he gave the
astounding notice, that the mail which had
before run once a fortnight to New Eng
land, would start once a wecek the year
round. whereby answers might be obtained
to letters between Philadelphia and Boston
in three weeks, which before had required
six weeks. in 1774 it was announced in all
the papers ofthe colony. that "John Perkins
engages to ride post to carry the mail once
a week from Philadelphia to Baltimore, and
will take along or bring back led horses or
any parcel." When a post rider proposed
starting, notice was given of his intention by
advertisement, also by the town crier, for
several days in advance. In 1790 the num
ber of post offices had increased through the
country to seventy five.-Borton Transcript.
A Hairless Horse.-A horse which is now
exhibiting at Tattersalls is certainly. a great
curiosity. There is not a hair on any part
of his body, from his ears to his tail. nor on
any of his limbs. He is a perfectly formed
and docile animal, and his skin is as smooth
and as soft as a lady's, or as the great ana
cond a's. Startle not, fair dames, at the com
bination, for we mean no disrespect to you
whatever. It is said that the dam was fright
ened almost to deth at the sight of an ele
phant, & her foal resembled the object of her
dread,- in color, and somewhat in his mode
if standing. He is said to be a quick walker
and a fast trotter. His original proprietor,
it is reported, was as much frightened at his
huirless appearance, as his datn was at the
elephant, and was so anxious to get rid of
hint, that he gave him away to a neighbor,
who kept him until he was three years'old,
and sold him to his present owner for 62,:1 t0.

MEW STATE '*lGHT PAPER,
TO THE PUBLIC.
THE publication of-the WASHINGTON RE
FORMER being uspended, and the mub.
lisher Gen. buFF GasEs, having expressed his
purpose to ret;:e altogether from the arena, we
have determined to establish a new political
journal at the seat of the General Governmeut,
to vindicate and sustain the principles of the Re
puhlican party of 179.9, and to defend the rights
and ibterests of the Sdttlh. Tothis end we have
engaged the services of RICHAnD K. CUAr..
Fsqajire, late editor of the Reformer, and shall iin
the course ofa week or two, issue a nacec paper
and to be called the WASHINGTON CH lON
Ma. CRAI..E will have the exclusive editorial
control of the paper; and, as it is intended to
supply the place of the Reformer, we have made
arrnngements with Gen. DuffGreen, by which
the subscription list of that paper has been trans
ferred to us, and we have bound ourselves to
furnish the CiuRoSICLR to his subscribers at the
saune price paid for the Reformer. This arrange
ment, we hope, will give satisfaction to all, as the
new paper will he one of the same size, and edi
ted by the same gentleman.
This annunciation is made at this time, in or
der that the subscribers to the Reformer, and the
pubeli generally, may know that the State Rights
or Republican cause will not be surrendered at
the seat of the Federal Government. Many let
ters have been received and inquiries made in
reference to the subject, to which this annuncia
tion. we trust, will be a sutficient answer.
The CHRONICLE will be published tri-weekly,
during thi session of Congress, and semi-weekly
during the recess, at $6l per annum, if paid at
the end ofthe year or $5 if isid in advance.
Suibscrlhers to the Reformer, who have paid in
advllmiancemfur that titaper, will recei he Chrneiiele
during the, period leer which tlw:0 .ve been sub.
scrihed without further chairge.
