Hsalth or oua Pi.ACB.T-We forgive the
ditor of the Paineville Telegraph for hia un
generous insinuation that we are deterred by
motivea of interest from giving to the public
full atateinenti of the state of health at, and the
number of deaths in our town. Uur paper
hat contained notices of the deaths of those of
our citizen who have deceased, whenever
their friends have aeon fit to furnish ua with
the materials for them, or have requested us
to !va the customary publication. Neither
have we denied that the town has been sickly,
but, on the contrary, we have published that
euch waa the fact. We have denied, and,
with a dear conscience, we do still deny the
truth of the reports in circulation at other pla
""ceaTrespectinff the aickness and deaths here,
Sickness, distressing sickness, We have had, it
is true, but the number of deaths among our re
gular citizens, has been, taking the whsj year
together very small. We do not wish to say
unkind things to a man who ia even now mourn
ing the loss of a beloved brother,' who has died
among us, but we must say, ' that with us at
least he has dealt unjustly,. The season has
been a very sickly one everywhere, and ehave
suffered very much, and a few of those whom
we highly Valued have trodden the d)jrft path
that all the living must walk, but after all the
frightful tales thattave been told, but mo citi
zens of Maumee with whom we boo in tne
lightest degree an acquaintance have died.

Thb Eclipse. We have the pleasure of in
forming the readers of the Express, that tbe
sun passed off very much to the satisfaction of
all parties concerned. The clouds that obscur-
ed that luminary about noon, causing many to
fear the loss of the spectacle rolled themtelves
away, like the dropscene of a vast theatre at
the commencement of the ' performance, and
the whole drama from tha first "Enter" to tbe

of the entire audience. , The ring appeared,
through our smoked glass, pefectly regular

the most remarkable thing that we observe)',
waa the great distinctness of the shadow of
all objects within the influence of the sun's

we have ever seen.

point which place has, the, honor of furnishing
the bottle that killed the' cat and shivered the
devil. We should'nt like to say positively that
it wan't taken from tbe mouth of Swan Creek.
However that may be, if the editor of the
Buffnlonian should have occasion hereafter to
obtain a few bottles more decidedly poisonous

commend him to send to the Welland Canal,

or tub Buffalonian. Seldom, in the course
of human events, are we called upon to record
so base an outrage as has been attempted upon
the health, and perhaps the life of the editor of
this paper. It is with feelings ot the most pain
ful character that we give publicity to the de
tails of this horrid conspiracy. , , ,
It is known to most of our readers, that in
our "Trip to the West," regardless of our
own personal safety, and intent only upon their
gratification, we dared the noxious effluvia of
the Maumee Kiver oared its teryible miasma,
and despite the fevers and agues, which we
felt hovering in the air about us ; despite the
glimmering tapers that shone in almost every
nousw, uk ino warnine oescona ox disease. arm
death despite the sallow, cadaverous, and al
most ghost like appearance of the few remain'
trier inhabitants, stayed two nights at.Toledo. ,
Ourconstitntion triumphed over the effects
of tbe climate, and we came away unrmitten by
the dread destroyer. . Since that time, the
most violent and abusive paragraphs some of
them evidently written in a ht of the ague, have
appeared in the papers, published on the banks
ot this terrible river, because we did not risk
our precious life, by going father into the in
terior. , .. . - v. -
Disappointed in the expectation that these
violent Maumee fever paragraphs, would pee
us up, these horrid conspirators have tried an
other expedient. Yesterday, on going to the
office, we found a large box directed " To the
Editor of the Buffalonian Glass this side up
with care." On the end was marked, to. allay
any suspicion, ' Superior Lemon Syrup,"
We opened it, and found six large bottles, cork
ed, sealed with red sealing wax, stamped with
an M. and labelled 'Maumee Water, A. No. I.'
Accompanying this, was the following let-.

Burkina. This is a term technically given
to a snecies of swindling and robbery carried
on in New York,' The plan is to stop a gen?
tleman, one who looks like a green one ' as
if in a great hurry, and ask him to change a
note or give a note in exchange for coin for
some purpose. ' The gentleman will frequent
lv do this by way of accommodation, and if
he pulls out his pocket book, it is seized by the
burner, who makes off with it. , If a distur
bance is raised, the villain usually has two or
three assistants near at band who help him to
escape, by retarding tho operations of those in
pursuit. We percei ve that a notorious charac
ter known by the toubrtquel of Butcher Joe,
and who is styled "king of burners," front his
boldness and address, was arrested in New
York, a few days since. The particular case
for which he was taken is thus described in the
police reports: :, ', .. , , ."
About two months back, he burnt Mr.
George W. King, of 105 Water street, and in
pretending to give change, attempted to make
off with his poqket book. King seized him,
but lie turned the tables on iving, and collar.
ing him in return, told the populace that King
had been attempting to pass a counterfeit bill
off upon him. ' It was in vain that Mr. King
protested. Butcher Joe's statement was cre
dited, and Mr. King got off w ith. some consid
erable degree of maqvu odour. A few days
atterwaras, isutcnor Joomet King in the street.
and saying, "you will inform against me, will
you," struck him behind the ear. Mr.. King
was knocked down by the blow.- He called for
assistance, but before he could recover himself,
iiutcner joe had made hunseit scarce. ... Mr
King did not see Butcher Joe again until this
day, when he found him at the fire in Cherry
street, on the look out for flats. Here Mr. King
had him arrested. He had escaped punish
ment on so many lormer occasions, that it was
witb the greatest difficulty the officers could
prevent the populace from, inflicting Lynch
