the two roads to Hamden, within sev

The work on both ot these Roads

hope soon lo announce the lime tliat
Bro. McDowell will cause the loco
motive to snort within the limits ol

not be long, as no man is better calcu

have every reason to believe, from what
his already been done by the President

Oua Court House. This building
in its completion moves very slow.
The contract with the Commissioners
was to have it completed by the 1st of
January, 1856. The lower rooms for
officers are not yet completed as was
expected by the 1st of November, '55,
It will hardly be finished by the 1st of

Can a Runaway Slave own property
—Important Decision.
The Philadelphia papers mention a
curious and interesting case now befor e
the District Court in that city. A
slave by the name of Robert Thompson
Tan away from Virginia about 1832 or
1836, and came to Philadelphia, where,
in the oourse of a few years he purchjs
ed a lot of land and built a house. In
the mean time he had sent to Virginia
fo: his wile, .free woman of color, by
w hom he had ten childenr Before her
arrival, however, Thompson contracted
a marriage viih a colored wqinan in
Philadelphia- The Virginia wife on
arrivin g and finding how things were,
Uo married another man. Thompson
and his first w ite dted, and the house
and properly were left iu possesion of
the second wife. Now, however, a
daughter of the first or Virginia wife
has -brought an action of ejectment, to
recover lh property "of hei father.
The first question raised by this action
was: Could a wuaway slave hold pro
perty ia iFeimiylvania 1 The court
decided that he could, except that the
maBter might come and retain him and
take possession of his propei-iy. Jiut
until proved a fugitive, and reclaimed,
the colored man. The next, and more
difficult question was: Whether the
cohabitation aud -refutation o f the
parlies in Virginia constituted valid
marri sg, and tnad lha pWdviff in this
rase the legitimate child tad ieir of
her father? The Curt was rather in
clined to -believe the marriage valid,

An extensive trial of their virtues, by Professors,
Phvsicians. and Patients, hoi shown cures of dan
gerous diseases almost beyond belief, wcro thev not
substantiated by persons of such exalted position
ana cnaractrr as io roroia tue suspicion ui unirmii.
Their ortilicatoa are published in my American
Almanac, shkta the Agents below named aro
pleased to furnish froe to all inquiring.
Annexed we give uirecuons iur ineir use in tue
complaints which they have been found to cure.
Fob, CosTiVKNEsa. Tako ono or two Pills, or
such quantity as to gently move the bowels. Cos
tivencss is frequently the aggravating causo of
Piles, and tha cure of one complaint is the cure
of both. No person can feci well while under a
costive habit of body, llcnco it ahould be, as it
can be. nromotlv relieved.
Fob Uyspupsia. which Is sometimes the cause
of Coitirenest, and always uncomfortable, take mild
doses from one to four to stimulate the stomach
and liver into healthy action. They will do it, and
the hearhum. boduburn. and toulbiirn of dyspepsia
will rapidly disappear. When it has gone, don't
forget what cured you.
For a Fori Stomach, or ilarUi Inartion of the
Bowelt, which produces general depression of the
spirits and bad hoalth, take from four to eight Pills
at first, and smaller doses afterwards, until activity
and strength is restored to the system.
Fob Nervousness, 6ick Headache, Natwia.
Pain in the Stomach, Bark, or Side, take from four
to eight pills on going to bed. If they do not oper
ate sufficiently, take more the next day until tl-ey
do. These complaints will be swept out from the
system. Don't wear these and their kindred dis
orders because your stomach is foul.
Fob Scbopcla, Ehyhipklas, and all Diseatei
; the .Van, take tho Pills freely and frequently, to
keep the bowels open. The eruptions will gener
ally soon begin to diminish and disappear. Many
eVeadful ulcers and sores have been healed up by
the purging and purifying ell'cct of these Pills, and
some disgusting discuses which seemed to Saturn'
the whole system havo comulctcl v yielded to th; :
influence, leaving the sulfcrer in perfect health.
.Patients! your duty to society forbids that you
should p;.raue yourself around the world covered
with pimples, blotches, uloers, sores, and all or any
of the unclean diseases of the skin, because your
system wants cleansing.
To Pt-uiPT tub Blood, they are the best medi
cine ever discovered. They should be taken freely
and frequently, and the impurities which sow the
seeds of incurable diseases will be swept out of the
system like chaff before tho wind. By this property
they do as much good in preventing sickness as by
the remarkable cures w hich they are making every
where
Liver Complaint, jAOtntcB, and all Biliout
A fleet iont arise from some derangement either
torpidity, congestion, or obstructions of tho Livor.
i orpidi ty and congestion vitiate tho bile and rendor
it unlit for digestion. This is disastrous to tbe
i.i a th, and the constitution is frequently under
mined by no other cause. Indigestion is the symp
tom. Obstruction of the duct wnicn empties tne
bile into tho stomach causes the bile to overflow
Into the blood. This produces Jaundice, with a
long and dangerous train of evils. Costivenes, or
alternately eostiveness and diarrhoea, prevails.
f evcrum symptoms, languor, low smriu, weanuena,
restlessness, and melancholy, with sometimes in
ability to sleep, and sometimes great drowsiness j
sometimes tnore is severe pain m tne sine; ine siun
and the whito of the eyes become a frreenish yellow
the stomach acid; the bowels sore to the touch;
tlia whole system irritable, with a tendency to fever.
which may turn to bilious fever, bilious colic, bilious
diarrhrca, dvscnterv, &c A medium dose of three
or four Pills taken at night, ullowed by two or
three in the morning, and repeated a few days, will
remove the cause of all these troubles. It is wicked
to suffer such pains when you can cure them for 25
cents.
Rheumatism, Gout, and all Inflammatory Fe
rert are raDidl v 'mred bv the purifS inu ellccts of
these Pills upon .he blood and the stimulus which
they atiord to the vital principlo of Life. For
these and all kindred complaints thev should be
taken in mild doses, to move the bowels gently, but
freely.
As a DrNXEB Pill, this is both agreeable and
useful. No Pill be made
k fWfK
can more pleasant to take,
and certainly none lias been made more erlccttial to
the purpose for which a dinner pill is employed.
