IT's So.--Now that the warm weath -
er is about to set in, every body who
studies his health, endeavors to get
something to purify the blood, and,
put the system in a proper condition.
Warm climates, we all know, have a
tendency to weaken. the most robust
and alite*hy persons, and on the ap
proach of the summer season, medici
Inal drinks are in great demand, but it
is very seldom that the purchaser suc
ceeds in getting anything beneficial,
ti wing to the influx of patent midi
cines, put up in the north by impos
ters. We advertise in this issue of
the News, Orookee'Iuvigorating Aro
matic Vegetable' Stomach Bitters, to
which we direct the particular atten
tion of our readers. Mr. C. is a gen
rleman. whose reputation is too well
known in New Orleans, to venture
bringing before the public anything
that would prove otherwise than as re
presented by him. Ifyoun want bitters,
try Crookes' it is prepared in the South
and should receive the preference
over all others offered to the public.

Min. EDTron ; With your per
mission, I would call the attention of
our town authorities, through the
columns of your paper, to the wharf.
There is a part of it where, I judge,
the spikes were never properly driv
in, they project from the boards not
less than an inch, and arec dangerous
to pede.trians. While hurrying along
the otter evening, I saw an old gen
tlemen strik.; his toe against one of
the spikes:siuded to and fall down;
having a narrow escape from rolling
down the wharf into the river. Thus
yon rsee, Mr. Editor, the just grounds
I have of complaining; for the fall

A New Society.
Wejiave .bben reading of another
ao4iion scheme, it is the formation
of a society for the fusion of the hu
man races, advocating strongly the
equality of all biunmau beings, be their
complexion of skin what itmay. They
consider the proper way of elevating
the negro, for whom they pretend to
have anch great sympathy, is, to le
gitimately marry among them; have
them all free, cost what it may, and
to do this, they contemnplate estab
lishing liberating cruisers, from the
PotomaE to Galveston, and after get
ting the fugitives, they are going to
better their situatieon, by casting them
upon certain Islands to be found in
tihe sea of the Antilles. They be
lieve that the ,only hope of emancipa
tion of this race is. by intermarriage
with the white. The society is of
Frencht origin, and to what extent it
may exist in the north there is no tel
ling, for things of this character do
not take long to be backed in that lati
tude. The tollowing is a declaia
tion of the principles, etc., they wish

The Seventh Case.

slieaking ofthe Customnhouse seizures
Collector Schell yestcrlday sent to
the Secretary of the 'T'rea:suryv the
carefully prepared report which he
had been rejtuested to mrnke upon
the cases of the schoonters S. E. Evans
and Indus, and the =.hip Sultan,
which arrived at New' York 2.6th ult,
and the sclhoone, r Suany South, on
the 27th, andl were tinied I100 each
for having left. thie Cotittederate ports
without a Unilted Stat e. celeartance.
As the faicts involved ale .ssetiiially
those already knowni to rlthe apublic
in the case of the schooner Bestless
and steamship Bienville, there is
scarcely any doubt that Secretary
Chase will follow the precedent
which he has established in those
two cases, and remit the fines of
those four rvessels also, charging the
triflillg costs otf tlhe prociloding upon
the owners, and thus avoiding a di
rect recognlitioln of the Sonthern Con
federacy,since the ,Secretary of the
T''rewasury has ant horit v to collect or
remit fines at discretion, for an al
leged violation of th e United States
ItRevenue Laws. A sevent h case, sim
ilair to the above , is that of the bark
Smunuel Moxley, .1 r., which arrived
here from St. Marks, Fla., (oi the 28tlh
ult., without IjUnitedl States papers.
This case,and the mniy others which
mnay be expected, will be duly repor
