Buck's Patent Hot aitft -Air-tight Cooking
i IS REMOVED from Light street to No. 42 South Calvert
' I street, 3d door above Lombard street.
It is now one year since the subscriber first introduced
this stove to the uihiihilnuhi of Hie city ami county of liultiinore
and its adjacent country, and will venture to say
that no stove ever intrisluccd into this market, where so
large a number has been sold, ever became so popular In
so short a lime, or gave such general ami, universal satistaction
as it lias done. It In now eight years since 1 lirsl
commenced selling this Stove, during which time I have
sold almost nil and every kind of Cooking Stove that now
is or lias been in the market lor the lasL fifteen years:
tlwoinre am, front experience, prepared to say, without!
tear of contradiction, that there never has been that Ma- I
chine made in shape of either Stove or Range, that is capa1
i.in of doing so much work, of doing it us well, and at as |
small expense lor lubor ami fuel, as the muck wove, uiei
fire is made and brought directly under ami very close to
! all tlie boilers, from \ to 12 in number. The oven is very ,
large, being the lull Size of Ibe stove, including the lieartli,
consequently is twice as large its the generality of ovens in
Cooking Stoves now in use, ami a third larger than the
oven of any other htovo ever made; ami is so constructed
that the heat passes in lines entirely around the oven, being
a distance front eight to twenty feet, (according to size,)
which not only gives the oven a perefctlv even heat at top
ami bottom, but by confiding and sending the heat tiiis
extraordinarily long distance in the stove before coining to
llie pipe, must make it apparent to every one that it would
require much less fuel to cook or keep it heated. It is also
a superior baker; and the small size being Capable of
baking four loaves of bread ut a time, it at once does away
with the necessity of a hake oven lor family us?, thereby
saving a large amount of fuel that is usually wasted in this
way, and renders it peculiarly adapted to tne'uso of hoarding
houses, academies, hospitals, steamboats, and (lie |
largest class hotels. Hundreds of certificates might he add- i
ed to substantiate the above tacts, butLdcetn It not necessary,
believing that all who wish to study economy ami con-'
vemeiice, ami at the same time obtain the most simple, I
moat ornamental, ami most durable Stove in America will
at least call ami cxuiiiine Ibis before purchasing elsewhere.

Lieutenant, who strictly charged him to give admitiiu?co
to no Htrange apothecary. Thus far Rlwcs had
micccssfully counter-plotted the poisoners. Unfortunately,
when the king's medical attendants took
liarge of Ida prisoners, the Lieutenant's vigilance
was relaxed; Iu: thought himself safe in the hands ol
such approved honest men. Now it was that Franklin
uccotiiplishcd his pursue. lie bribed I.obeli's boy
to put poison which is said to liuvo been sublimate
if mercury?into a clyster which'Overbury had on
ho Mtli September, lOUJ. On the following day he
was a dead man.
An inquest was held by one of the coroners ot
Middlesex ; but it throws no great light 011 the luisiless.
At the expicss desire ol .Somerset, Overbury's
iroiher-iii-luw,, and three or lour friends was admited
to see the b??dy ; and they were ut liberty to carry
t way, and to bury it, if they pleased. But the state
>1 the corpse was such as to niuke a speedy burial
lecessary; and it was interred within the precincts
M the Tower.
* * * * * Months and
rears rolled on. Overbury had passed out of tilt
vorld and out of the fuiihiess memories of men. A few
idmirers of the poet had recorded their regrets in elegiic
and eulogistic verses, to be prefixed to u new edition
?f his works; but those works? lorn? since uttcrlv
orgotten but tor their author's untimely fate? were i
ttrii.il! tlmt kept I mi i in recollection. ICssexhad forgot- r
en his injuries in a second murriage. Somerset and v
lis countess were hi ill "the glass of fashion and the u
uould ol form;" the brightest ornaments of the court; u
he envy of ull, for their beauty, accomplishments, i
nd mutual love; the ladder by which all men strove t
o reach the king's favor. .Somerset hud just been J
nude l.ord Clutiubeiluin; and this new mark of royal "
ouiity had been rendered doubly grateful by the r
uumier of conferring it. The king, in presence ot L
lis court, gave him the stuff of ollice, Buying, "Lo, n
a re, friend Somersetand grueiously added that, t
s the place was one of great nearness to his person, J
ic hud given it to him whom ol ull men living, he c
uost cherished. il
Hut Somerset's fall was now at hand. Hume tells N
is?we know not on what authority?that he seem- v
d troubled with an evil conscience; had become re- ()
erved, silent and gloomy; and thus lost the king's \
avor. This may he true, or not; accuracy of detail v
m by no means Hume's forte; and, perhaps, mere ^
icklcness, and the attraction of a younger and hand- t
miner persoh; for this not solid merit was the ground- tl
vork of James's ridiculous friendships?may sufli iently
account for the transfer of his ufi'cction from
Somerset to VUIic:rs. Sir George ViUlers was now (

notion oi one ho saw to be a rival; and it in probable I
hat James only wanted a pretext, and perhaps some I
ilight stiinnlns to overcome his timidity, for breaking 1
with liis former favorite. '
The pretext and the stimulus were at length fur
uislied by the old business of Overbury. How thin
transpired in a point that mill remain* Houufwh.it in
the dark. The beat authenticated story seems to be
die popular one; that Lobcll's boy, who gave tinL-lyster,
and had becnj sent abroad out of the way,
was touched with remorse, and revealed the whole
iccret t?> the minister at the Hague. This being of ton
liigh a nature to be intrusted to writing, the minister
jbtained leave to visit ICnglund, and made the matter
known 10 nir iinipn wiuwooa, men a aecrvinry 01
State, from whom it went immediately to the king.
James wan at Koyston, on one of hid loyal progresses,
and Somerset was witli him. Some rumors, it
seems, injurious to the latter,"having got abroad in
London, he was about logo thither and "face them
town." His parting with James, who had just
heard the news, and the king's profound dissimulation,
are matters with which the rcuder is doubtless
familiar. Two versions of the story pass current,
from one of which it would ap|>car as if Somerset wus
actually arrested in the king's presence: but a correspondence
published by Mr. Amos proves this to be
impossible. There can bo no doubt, however, that
when James took leave of the carl, with every expression
of endearment, and impudence for his return, lu
knew that Somerset was going to the Tower, ami
that, as he said himself, "he should see him no
Whilst Somerset was engaged in buoying up Overbury
with false ho|>e.H, and secretly contriving to keep
Ilim fast, Lady Frances, 011 her part, meditated a more
Jeadly project. If the former had cuuse to wish
Dverbury out of the way for fear of machinations or
iisclouures to come, the latter was still more powerfully
impelled to seek his destruction in revenge for
what she looked upon us wrongs and insults past.?
Her tirst attempt to rid herseli of Overbury having
lulled, she now east about for a surer ami more secret
instrument of destruction. There Ih no proof thai
her intentions were disclosed to Somerset ; and tire
presumptions seem to point the other way. Lady
Fiances had not ventured to speak to him of tin
assassination, though his concurrence would have
been necessary for that project to succeed : here,
where his concurrence was not required, she was
still less likely to volunteer u communication that must
risk so much. Unscrupulous us she was, she wus
not hardened in guilt; her self-respect might begone,
and yet she might cling all the more tenaciously to
the good opinion of others, and, above all, of Somerset.
She dared not-risk the forfeiting of that affection
which was the only thing that prompted her en
Iter own, would prove strong enough to survive the
shock of suspicion, disgrace, public exposure, and
conscious crime. If it be true that Somerset hinisoh
bad wished lor Ovcrbury's death, and unskilfully attempted
to produce it, yet that was unknown to her.
It would seem, then, that the guilty projects of the
husband und wife went on side by side, but were distinct
and hidden from each other.
Very shortly after Ovcrbury'a imprisonment, Lady
Francis must have begun lo mediate his death by
poisoning. The subject of secret and slow poison
was one tiiat, in the reigns of Elizabeth and her successor,
much occupied men's imaginations. This
was no doubt owing, primarily, to the recent, introiuction
of chemical science into England. The an
uf healing by means of herbs and simples was beginIng
to be superseded by the more potent agency ol
drugs und chemicals. The herb-womun, or leech,
wus but just supplanted by the apothecary; for the
establishment of apothecaries' shops throughout Europe
is an event that belongs to the 16th and beginning
of the 17th centuries. It was only natural thai
the wonders of the new science Should excite the
terror of the ignorant, und be the subj*?ct of u thousand
exaggerations. Its powers of destruction furnished
a readier theme for the murvel-Joving than its
power of healing. A few true stories of poisoning
11iriiw<i iIn- micli'UH of ii thousand more that were the
creation of fancy, terror, or malignity. Hence it is,
(hut the reigns of these sovereigns ubound with so .
many tales of mysterious deaths and indefinite sus-j
picions. Camden, in his Annuls, telis us tliut whenever
a populur or tiisliitguished man died, there inevitably
went round a whisper of poisoning. It was
even believed that the professors of this art could so
regulate their doses as to produce death in any given
number of days; nay, they could simulate thcuppearance
of natural disease.* This latter refinement, and
possibly the former, were indeed afterwards attained,
when chemical science was more advanced, by the
notorious Tnphana, and the* Marchioness of Hrinvilliers;
but they must certainly be deemed beyond the
reach of any Englishman in the reign of James I.?
Still the belief prevailed; and the Lady Frances tho't
it dose of poison the surest means of ridding herseli
jf her enemy.
Her scheme was concocted with the infamous Mrs.
rurner, a woman who, to the ostensible business oi
i perfumer, united other secret ami nefarious pur
mils. She it was who hud introduced the young
:ountess to the magician Firman; und her scrvum,
A'eston, hud been the bearer of Lady Frances' letters
o Rociiesier. Upon her, probably, must rest the
urgest share of the guilt. At all events, she had the
ictive part in the business, und bore the chief weight
jf popular odium.
Their lirst care was to provide the prisoner with a
icepcr whom they could depend on. Hero they were
jariiully favored hy circumstances. The Lieutenant
A the Tower had recently been dismissed, and his
iucccs8or was to be appointed. The place was, ol
sourse, pretty nearly in the gilt of .Somerset; und lie
tud promised to oblige Sir T. Monson, a friend ol
,,ady Frances, and whose daughter it was that asusled
her in the matter ol the divorce, hy obtuinitig
he post for his nominee. In the languugc of the
lay, Somerset thus conferred on Monson "a sun
yortll ?2,UU0," that is, Monson was allowed to set
ho place to sale, and -d2,UU0 was the price he put tipin
it. The purchaser was one Sir Gervase Klwes,
vho afterwards obtained an unenviable notoriety from
lis connexion with the Ovcrbmy murder. This new
lieutenant came into hiu place about a week uitet
Jverbury's imprisonment. Almost at the same time
aidy Frances induced Monson to speak tothoLlcuenanl
in favor of Weston, whom she wished to be
ippointed Overbury's keeper. Her request excited
10 suspicion. Monson was aware of her intimacy
villi Rochester, and would naturally suppose the later
desirous to provide Ins friend with a servant who
night consult his comfort and perhaps be the ineditm
of correspondence between them. In this little
natter, it was equally natural that both Mouson and
Clwes should be glad to oblige their patron. Accordnly,
the unhappy prisoner was placed in the charge
f Mrs. Turner's conlidential servant, Weston; a
vretch who had already learnt his part, and received
lis bribe, hiuI was now the willing instrument of ins
Employers' vengeance.
Tile next step was to procure the poison; and this
i II to the province of Mrs. Turner, who knew of a
runt worthy upolhe.cary. The apothecaiies of James's
eign are not to be judged of iroiu tiieir successors
vlio stand behind counters now-a-days. Our first
ipolhecuries were Italiuus, then French, and it was
i new thing for uu Kuglishiuaii to praetiee the art.
is beginners, the native chemists cannot be supposed
o have been very skilful. In the opinion of King
ames's French physician, the F.ngiish doctors
'were all tools." They met with small encouragenent:
the mere urt ol healing was not enough to
ring a livelihood; inula London apothecary wasgeicrally
obliged toeke out his living with some other
mde?often that of a confectioner?sometimes, like
'ohnson'ri "AM I h ugger," a tobacconist. We may
onjec turc that Shakspeare's "lean apothecary" was
I raw n Iroiu the life. Vet those ill-paid practitioners
vere necessarily men of some science, lor they had,
very one, to feel his own way. If their shop winlows
were stutird with tarts and jellies, or rolls of
/irglnin, their Inner rooms were fitted up with stills
nid laboratories; and they could brew their own
Irugs, and make their own experiments, and pry Ino
the mysteries of nature and dabble in alchemy,
ind solace their hungry wretchedness with golden
lreunts. Poor as these men were, they were natuiilly
a proud race; for they were looked upon by the '
multitude with admiration mixed with terror, as wizards
who could read futurity, und make the powers
of dnrkness their familiars, und human life their plaything.
In a man thus circumstanced one might expect
to find an apt instrument of criminal designs.

This first dose proving insufficient, it appears that :
poisons were put into certain turts and pots of jelly <
which were sent to Overbury under the pretext of a I
frieudlv regard for his comfort. There is a letter from
Lady Frances lo Elwes, which contains the following
passage: " I was bid to tell you thut you must
take heed of the tarts because there are letters in
ihem, and therefore neither give your wife nor children
of them; but of the wine you may, for there
are 110 letters in it." Lady Francos, oil her examination,
owned that by the words "letters" she meant
poison. But there is no proof that she meant Elwes
10 understand it so; on the contrary, there seems nothing
in this extract inconsistent with the supposi- <
Lion that she looked upon Elwes as one who knew 1
nothing of Iter design. Elwes, however, was not one
to be duped ; he took cure that the tarts should never 1
couie near Overbury. Sometimes he made answer
be given that his children hud desired them ; sometimes
he caused his own cook to prepare similar ones ;
and at last, to save the trouble of perpetual excuses,
his keeper desired the messenger to bring no more,
since Overbury found in the house that which pleased
him well.
The prisoner might have escaped altogether, but
that unfortunately he now fell ill in earnert. He seems
lo have been a mnii of feeble constitution, broken by
a licentious life; and, without uhy suspicion of poisoning,
the close confinement, anxiety, and hope deferred,
may sufficiently account for his disorder. On
heuring of it, Somerset immediately took care to provide
him with the best medical advice. He sent him
Drs. Mayerne and Lobell, the king's physician and
apothecary, men who stood at the head of their respective
professions. Dr. Craig, another of the king's
physicians, was also admitted, to see the prisoner, by
an order under Somerset's huvid. This seems inconsistent
with the supposition that Somerset believed
the cause of illness to be poison, administered by hi9
directions, unless, indeed, weurc to suppose that the '
medical men were among his confederates. This '
seems an idle thought, and is at least entirely unsup- 1
ported by proof of any kind. If Somerset had been
oiice tempted to seek Overbury's destruction, we be- 1
lieve that his care to provide him with doctors only (
proves him to have now repented.
Meanwhile, Overbury being still alive, though it
was some months since the first poisons were sent 1
lo him, Lady Frances began to grow suspicious.? *
She sent for Weston, and closely questioned him; 1
luti lie maintained lie had given poison enough to kill 1
twenty men, utid could only suppose, as Bacon after- 1
wards said at the trial, that Overbury hud become I
used to that sort of diet. Her suspicions, however, Ji
[ ould not have been quite allayed. .Shortly after this, '
Weston was sent for by Dr. Franklin, who questional
him as to Overbury's state, and on learning that I
lie took clysters, said that an apothecary should have I
?20 to give him one. *
Weston nskrd whether he meant to bribe Overbu- *
ry's customary npothccry. t
"No," said Franklin, "another shall give it him." '

confession of his own guilt; besides all which, their
evidence cleats up what would otherwise be unaccountable?the
strange vitality of Overbury under
his unwholesome diet. The story, then, goes on as

Shook lug Accident.
Haolkigh England September 17.
Yesterday, about 2 o'clock, this town was painfully
excited by intelligence of a most alarming acciden t
ut the railway stution, situated ubout u quarter of a
mile distant. The line, which is a branch of the Kaetern
Union railway, and branches oil about four miles
from Ipswich, was opened for trathe about a fortnight
since. As is frequently the case, the main efforts of
the company had been to complete the line, leaving
the stations and accomodation buildings to be subsequently
erected. These have since been rapidly
proceeded with, and in the case of this particular station
the outer walls had been carried to their proper
| height. Beyond (lie station, at the east end, a wing
wail had been carried out a distance of 30 feet, which
was intended to support the roof over the platform
and the carriages when plnced for starting.
On the day in question an excureiou-tmin liad boen
announced tor the Ipswich regatta, and front the novelty
ol "railway travelling, between band GOO of the inhabitants
flocked thither to avail themselves of it. They
hud all assembled on the platform waiting lor the train
being bucked up; and at the eastern end, being the.
upper purt, they were the most thickly congreguted,
under the shelter of the 30 feet of wing wail abovementioned.
The wind had been blowing all the forenoon with
terrific violence, ami was peculiarly fell at the station
from its exposed position. Just before the train
had Im.'cii arranged to Start, a tremendous gust of
wind occurred, and the wing wall was thrown down
in one mass upon the passengers assembled beside,
and who must have numbered upwards of 150.
The scone is described by those who saw it to have
been dreadful in the extreme; as it fell the most violent
shrieks rent the nir, and were the next moment
exchanged for the cries and groans of the wounded.
The plutforiu gave way beneath the accumulated
weight, and this circumstance, and the very large
number of persons assembled made the consequences
fur more serious than would otherwise have been the
case. As it was, the eilects of the accident were most
disastrous; more than sixty are now under medical
care, and it has been almost as much as the surgeons
of the town could do to pay attention to the ditlcrcut
cases. Among the mOst serious are the fallowing :
M rs. Harriet Pittock, fracture of both legs and so I
vero wounds of head; she is an aged wouiuu, and there
is little hope of her surviving. Mr. John Staines fractured
collar hone, ami severe wounds of legs. Win.
Sheldrake, fructured thigh and wounds of head; this
is also a bad case. Mrs. Maria Jaslyn, fractured ribs
and general injuries. Thomas Thcobold, concussion
of brain and severe wounds. Susan Eighteen, fracture
of right leg and injury of left. Eliza Arms, concussion
of brain. Mrs. Susan Brooks, fractured ribs.
Mr. May, fractured leg und various bruises.
In additiou to the above, many received serious
wounds of the head, body, and limbs. Every exertion
was made by the inhabitants in sending vehicles
to convey the wounded to their homes, and the most
general sympathy is lelt for their sullerings. At present
110 tatul results have occurred; but ul this euriy
period no assurance can be given thut such will not
oe the case, indeed in some instances the most serious
apprehensions are entertained.
Olu Psalm Tun as.?To lorward the favorable reception
of such tunes, two facts, as to their original
intention, must be practically born*- m mind. They
were sung faster than we usually sing (hem, and,
what is better, by a far greater number of voices, it
is a groat mistake to suppose old tunes should be
sung in u heavy, drawling style. Our forefathers in
the church were cheerful christians. A psahu of a dozen
verses Was but short to thein. Hence, as well as
from other circumstances, it is clear that they sang
in u quicker and livelier manner than is commonly
conjectured. The old hundred tune is made a dirge
in our days, but in theirs it was a joyous and animating
canticle. 'All people that are on the earth
do well, sing to the Lord with cheerful voice!' In
like iiiumier York nine, which in shelled among the
dull und the obsolete, was little more than a century
ago, the liveliest and most popular tune of the entire
But to hear the old tunes to advantage, they must
be sung in the old style. Not only must they be
sung with decent gravity and cheerful sanctity, and
by musses of people, but by a multitude of voices,
'ny till the people together,' a9 the original directions
. state. Six thousand voices were wont to be heard
at St. Paul's Cross, and 'three or four thousand
singing at a time in a church yard of this city is but
a tnrte, said the excellent Roger Aschatu in a letter
Iroin Augsburgh, dated 14th 01 May, 1531. When
psalm tuiios are sung after this fashion, an intelligent
organist and a well disciplined choir will H"d cnmig i

might he to him the true philosopher's stone he
longed for; un apothecary could scarce afford to be
an honest man. Vet it would be an injustice to
wards the profession to suppose that it contained
many such wretches .is hint whom Mrs. Turner now
proceeded to consult. Dr. Franklin was commonly
reputed to have poisoned Ids own wife; he wnsquito
ready to undertake the same oflice for Overbury. Afterwards,
when arrested, he made amends by betraying
his confederates and seeking to implicate innocent
men. Being asked whether Somerset had taken
a part in some stage of the business, he obligingly
answered, "If you wish nie to say so, he did." He
also declared that this project of poisoning was but a
part of a more extensive scheme than the powderplot?that
he knew the names of many noblemen in
it with m itch more in the same strain, so palpably
fictitious, that flR even the otlicera of the prosecution
could behove or act uponjit. His examinations ore full

airs of the Astrologer, and bestowed on a friend a re1
celpu for raising spirits. Malignant to the luat, he
told the executioner, whilst he was performed the final
offices about his person, that he trusted there j

1 By no means. OverbuVy lived four months longer,
during which time, tf we are to believe Frauklin,
deadly poison van his daily food.
"Mir Thomas Over bury," says this most credible
witness, "never ate white salt, but there was white
arsenic put into it." Once he desired pig, and Mia
Turner put into it lapis costilus. The white powdei
that was sent to him in n letter, by Somerset, he
(Franklin) knew to be white arsenic. At auAhei
time he had two partridges sent him from
j court; and water and onions being the sauce, Mrs.
Turner put in cantharides. Mo that there was scarce
any thing he did eut, but there was some poison mixed."
If it be true that Overbuiy lived through this
treatment for four months, he must certainly have
been poison proof. J
j Tile fact is, that from the documents now made
i public by Mr. Amos, there seems great reason to believe
that these poisons were never administered at
all. This, indeed, cannot be suid to diminish the moral
guilt of Lady Somerset and her confederates.?
The poison wao prepared and sent to tl)e Tower, and
| believed to have been given to Overbury; but they
! appear to have been prevented from reaching him by
| the Lieutenant, Mir Uervase Elwes. This rests on js
I 'the testimony of Elwes and Weston?evidence not
'absolutely free from suspicion, but which seems con- .
dinned by u variety of circumstances. In the first
place, the character of Elwes, and his whole demeanor,
point him out as a man whose veracity is to be
depended on; and he persisted in the same story
when on the scaitbid. It Is true thut one must view
with distrust the self-exlulpution of a man charged
with a crime; but Elwes is confirmed in every point
by Weston, and there can be no reason why the latter
should have taken part in u lubrication which i
