There were upwards-of500 men, women

these there were taken 150 negroes, about
forty of whom are capable of hearing arms.

Sir-In obedience to orders, I took up
the line of march from my camp, left bank
of the Suwaunee 'river, opposite fort Fanl
ning, on time morning of the 4th instant, for
Deadman's Bay. On the morning of the
7th, after thoroughly scouring the intermne
diate country, and encounterng much wa
ter, produced by the recent heavy ruins, I
reached the Steamhatchee river, within six
miles of the bay, that stream inundating
the country for a considerable extent. I
deenied it improvident to pass without
further apparent necessity. I turned down
that streamn for some two miles, when the
country became too soft and wet to pass
further, when I directed my course up, and
as near that stream as I could, by way o(
its sources to this place, which I reached
this morning, examining critically every
point calculated to harbor the endmny, with
out finding the least trace of one made for

that anmy of the enemy have beeni west of

[FOR THE ADVEtiTISER.1
Mr. Editor-A clever writer over tie sig
nature of "Unique,'' has appeared several
times in your paper, and in candor I must
say that I have poured over the productions
of his pen, with one exception, witlh no lit
tle pleasure. Tihe exceptionable article to
which I allude is to be found in your 8th
No. of thisyear. "The deep interest which
he feels in the welfare of the younger part
of your male readers will, he doubts not, be
a sufficient excuse for his presuming to di
rect them in the procurement of their bet
ter halves." Now, sir, I rejoiced when
"Unique" took the text which I have given
you in his own words, for I expected that a
writer of his proved ability, and seeming
ingenuousness, would have made something
out of it Sorry am I to say that I have
been disappointed. I make no war upon
his motive, and would be indeed mortified,
should he receive the impression, that in
the strictures which I propose making upon
his essay, I aml actuated by any other de
sire than that of vindicating my own sex
from what (in all deference) I consider the
nanny caltmnics which he has uttered.
ile pays no very high complement to his
own sex when lie says, "never pay your
devotions to a lady in the neighborhood or
village of your nativity or residence, for
rest assured that she will know too much a
bout you to find you at agreeable lover.
Now according to this, to love a gentleman
you must not know him; and theconverse,
I suppose is true, that to hate all gentlemen,
it is but necessary to be acquainted with
them. But ny business is not to defend
the stronger sex; "the blood of Douglass
can defend itself."
lIe does but justice when he dissents from
the opinion entertained by some, that a lady
is to be won by afew scraps of poetry.
Though not apprormng altogether, it would
have given me pleasure to have heard "U
nique" speak im terms of strong and un
qualified reprehension of Byron, whose
character as a poet is only surpiassed by his
character as a rake, and who, whatever may
ie the sublimity of his genius, by the ver
dict of the world should never be mention
ed in connection with any thing that is vir
tuous and excellent. Better would I be
pleased if his opinions were never even in
troduced on such subjects. ly the acknow
ledged and notorions turpitude of his life, lie
has forfeited all claims to notice, and, to
sny the least, it is bad taste to speak of
him as respectable authority.
r The next writer introduced by "Unique"
is the Duke Rochefoucauld. 7t seems to
have been the Duke's notion, that one had
nothiug to do but to fill a woman to over
flowing with jlattery, to winl her. Our zeal
will not lead us amto the denunciation of an
eminent man, whose life was consecrated
to the noble purpose of benevolence, and
of promoting the useful arts, but we must
be permitted to regard his notions as the
idle vagary of one who knew nothing of
whiat he was writing about. "Unique"
clearly insinuates that the )uke has given
the true philosophy of woman. and lie pro
ceeds in his article to inform his readera
how to carry it out. The difficulty here
tofore has been in its practical application
I "The poet, the philosopher, the moralist
i have all attempted to furnish a chart anid
colpass, but they have all failed." All
these mighty difficulties have now vanished,
and this greater than poet, philosopher or
moralisthas discovered tihe truesecret.
"Strike the cymbal, rolltihimbrel,
a Let the trumip of triumph sound."
Arid pray what is this brilliant discovery?
- Credit with his tailor, and six uninterrupt
- ed interviews with his mistress." "Never
talk to a woman about any thing but her
self." It is at age of patents, and I would
suggest to "Unique" to secure the right for
thus gettmg a wde.

Flour.-The first quiarter of the year 1838
having recently expired, we have referred to the
returns imade tiny the Inspector Uceral to tihe
City Registerland find that during the three
moniths endiiig 31st March just past, there were
inlspiecnted 80,889 barrels and 300 half barrels
Wheat Flour. Compared with tihe inspectiollns
of tihe correspoiding <puarter of 18:t7, those of'
die quarter just fiimshed show a falling oil' of
14,139 bbhs. Wheat Flour.
Te falling off in tie supplies of Foreign
Vheat. daring tle quarter just fiunished, when
coipared with tihe samie quarter of last year, is
materially greater. In the month of Jan. 18;7,
there were inported 12:,320 bushels of' wheat;
in Februaryfd,*279 hushels; and in March,226,
609 hushel's-nmaking an ageregate ilrort ,r
the firstquarter of'1837, of425A,2118bushels. The
imports during the sane itonths of 1838 form an
aggregate of about 215,000 bushels, nead conse
queitly show a falling ol of 213,208 bushels.
E'mtimating the wheat at the rate of 5 bumshels
to tihe barrel of flour, the fhlling off inl the wheat
inimport of the last three nonths is equivalent to
42,641 barrels of flour; and if to this we add the
falling off ill tie inspections. n1 shown above,
we find that the aggregate fidling off, in flour
and wheat, is equivalent to 55.780m bhis. of flour.
From present appearances there is little doubt,
we think, that the imports of Ijoretn wheat
during the present quarter will be imo larger than
those of that just finished.
Thel Stocks of Flour in the laltimlore market
at this time, from the best information we have
been able to obtain. we think may be set down
at 30,000 to 35,000 barrels of all descriptions.
The quarter's inspections of Flour at Rich
mond endinr 31st March, 1838, were 41,056
barrels. 1)uritmg th! qiarterending a1st March,
1837, tijere were 37,870 barrels. Showing an
increase 3186 barrels.
At Alexandrin. the quarter's inspection ending
31st Iiiclh, 1838. were 4307 barrels. F'or tie
qua.rer ending 31st March -1837, there were
9,895 bbl. showing a falling off of 5,588 bbls.

2dly. Of Bilions Fever. This is a more obsti
tate and dangerous disease than intermittent or
tgue and fever, there are generally three or four
lays indisposition previous to the onset of thid
lisease, and frequently chilly sensations for a day
r two after. When this disease-is properly
ormed it rarely yields to any treatment under 8 or
0 days, and sometimes much longer.
3dly, Of Typhus or Nervous fever. This is
Itill a much -more obstinate and dangeroucdieaso
han bilious fever, and apparently more mild in I
lie connnoncement. It often continues fifneen
)r twenty days with scarcely any remission or in
ermission, with great prostration of body and
lepression of mind. It may be well to observe
hat Typhus fever is most common in time winter
mdspring, and Billious fever in the summer and
all. In the first stage of all fevers, it is common
For the tongue to be covered with a whitish coat,
and if the fever is not broken and rum into the
;econd stage, it is apt to assume a yellowish
brown color, and in the third and last stage of
revers, (and articularly if they are of a high
grade and malignant character) the tongue is apt
to assume a dark brown color, of different degrees

Ni stage of the disease the patient is often sen

rhe symptomis of there two diseases are'so much
ilike in their first stage dint plysicians often dif

materially, because the treatment of both should
be pretty much the sine, with this exception,
that typhuss fever does not require nor will it
bear as much strong sickening imedicine as bil
Treamnent In the first stage of tho two last
diseases, I give a puke or one or two small doses
of culomel or sone other anedicine that will ope
rate upon tie stomach and howels. Under any
circumstances I object to giving more stroig
medicite, and man decidedly of opinion that re
peated doses of such operating medicines do
more harm than good. After thus operating oin
the stomach and howels (und even without it)
if several days have elapsed and my patient be
come weak, I commence with the pills aid drops,
and give t (lose every three hours, that is eight
doses in each twenty four hours, with a regular
use of Virginia snake-root, orsone other sweat

drops of laudanm at night, if itle a grown per

ted from a continuation of the disease, and par
ticilarly if the hands and feet become cold, give
a draught of toddy or wine every three or four
hours unitil lie recovers; continue all tihe time to
use the pills or drops as reconunended. The
diet should be light, and taken only a little at a
time nnd often.
Bleeding is so seldom required in these disea
ses that it is scarcely necessary to mtiention it; if
it ever is resorted to it should be in die early
stage of them.
Blistering is sometimes useful and rarely if ev
er injurious; hut it should be chiefly resorted to
in the last stage,when there is delirium or lasting
coldiness in the extremities. In die trentnmcnt of
either of these diseases, I would prefer die bow
ei6 to be in rather a costive than laxative cnndi
tion. But should the howels be too inative,
give broken doses oh salts or oil, or ope hein
