There are crises in life, distinct and vivid,1
on which we can look back and feel that
thej have coloured our whole destiny.
Who can say, but that tor one year, one
week, one day, how different would all have
been? Silently, unconsciously, are we
wept on towards those moments which lie
like bills, placed here and there, from whose
top we can see our own life, like a panora
ma, stretched out before us, and know that
but for such and such events we should not
have felt and been as we are. Chance, fa
tality, are the words on the lips of the wise,
Eroudman, in explanation of tlis; but the
umble, loving spirit lonks higher for the
unveiling of those marvels which surpass
Atw Cottnftr. The citizens or a por
tion of Madison, Wayne and Reynolds conn
ties, recently appointed a committee to de
aionate the limits and boundary of a new
connty to be formed out of the three conn
ties, and where ther conjoin. The peti
tion will be presented at the next session of
the Legislature. frotpect.
We learn from a gentleman who came
to Cairo on the Gen. Lafayette, the steam
er Wyandotte, on her down ward trip, in at
tempting to land some passengers, struck a
snag and sunk to her hurricane roof, drown
ing? twentv-five or thirty persons. The
particulars, as far as we have been able to
learn them, were as follows. The Wyan
dotte Lad on board a large number of deck
passengers, who, when nearly opposite My
Wife's Island.' commenced quarrelling, and
the boat was landing for the purpose of set
ting them ashore, when the accident occur
red. We have not been able to learn the
names of any of the peisons drowned, but
sunnose them to be mostly deck passengers.
The freight and boat are an entire loss.

HIGHLY IMPORTANT NEWS FROM
. . The following extract of a letter is from
very respectable mercantile house, dated
Washington, Rappahannock Co. Va., )
May 26, 1846.
Pr. D. Jatnb Dear Sir: Our Mr. Jones
has been in a very bad state of health for
more than a year; he has had the benefit of
the best medical advice our country affords,
and also visited your city during last sum
mer, but found no relief. On the 15th of
April last, we purchased half dozen bottles
off your Tonic Vermifuge, and half dozen
boxes of Sanative Pills. . Through care
lessness in packing the articles in a dry
groods box, one half the Vermifuge was
broken. Mr. Jones commenced with the
Pills, and after taking few doses, felt a
decided improvement. The three bottles
of Vermifuge, which came safe to hand,
brought from him, he thinks, not less than
one thousand worms, and perhaps many
more. He is now in better health than he
has been in for years, and we hone a few
snore bottles of your Vermifuge and Pills,
will effect a permanent cure. All out phy
sicians have entirely mistaken hia case-
Prof. Samuel Jackson, of your city, at the
bead. - Mr. Jones is most anxious to get
more of your fills and Yermifuee as soon
