ONE HUNDRED YEARS.
Hark! ah list—a solemn knell
. Ib striking now from the village bell,
Some soul has passed from earth away—
Some restless heart no more will play;
I'll lißten lo its saddening chime,
And count the years of a lifetime.
One hundred years! And can it be
That tlinu has lived a century?
One hundred years! An age of time
Has struck for thee on the clock of time.
One hundred years! Did death forget
That you on earth did linger yet?
One hundred years! And in that time
Great change has swept o'er many a clime;
Each heart which beat in youth's fair day
All warm for thee, has passed away,
And thou alone, of all that race,
Upon this earth hath kept thy place. ,
Now dull and dim, that eye once bright;
And burning low, is reason's lighi;
Thy voice melodious once did speak,
But now 'tis trembling, cracked, and weak. i
And this alas! it is to be
The remnant of a century!
Thy baud all trembling— once so firm—
Thy limDs are stiff— rite life sap gone—
Thy car whicli drank love's lowest word
Is chill and still—no sound is heard.
Oh! never let be me like thee,
The last leaf of a century!
BUYING A FARM.
BY THE AUTHOR Of" "COUSIN SAI.I.Y DIt.LARn."
Brooks, who lived in Debson county, North ;
rolina, wanted to buy a tract of land near j
n, and concluded to dispatch one Augus Ale- j
pin to Charleston, South Carolina, to buy it
m the owner, who lived there. All the ne- j
ary arrangements were made. Angus start- j
off, and in due lime, Brooks would lake his
it and look down the road, in the hope of |
ling his agent returning. At last ho appear- j
, and the moment he entered the house, \
ooks accosted him:
"Well, Mac, have you got the land? 1 '
The agent, in whose face was any thing but ;
n-shino, replied somewhat gruffly, that "he I
ght let a body get down from his horse, he- j
o he put at him witli questions of busi- j
•"
But Brooks was in a fever of anxiety, and re
ated the question.
"D id you get it ?"
"Pshaw, now Brooks, don't press upon a bo
in this uncivil way. It is a long story, and
nust have time."
Brooks still urged, and Mac still parried the
estion till they got into the house.
"Now, surely," thought Brooks, "he will tell
b." But Mac was not quite ready.
"Brooks," says lie, "have you any thing to
ink?"
"To be suro I have," said the other, and im
ediately had some of his best forthcoming.—
aving moistened his clay, Mac took a seat, |
d his employer another. Mac gave a preli-I
inary hem! Ho then turned suddenly around j
Brooks, looked him straight in the eyes, at|d
ippcd him on the thigh,
"Brooks," says he,"wasyou ever in Cliarles
n?"
"Why, you know I never was," replied the
:her.
"Well, then, Brooks,"says the agent, "you
jglit to go there. The greatest place upon the
ce of tho earth! They've got houses there on j
oth sides of the road for five miles at a stretch,
ad d —ii the liarso track tho whole way !
trough! Brooks, I think I met five thousand j
eople in a minute, and not a chap would look j
t me. They have got houses there on wheels,
irooks! I saw one with six horses hitched to it, j
nd a big driver, with a long whip, going it I
ke a whirlwind. I followed it down the road
>r a mile and a half, and when it stopped I
>oked, and what do you think there was?—
fothing in it but one little woman sitting up in
ne corner.
"Well, Brooks, I turned back up the road,
nd as I was riding along, 1 soesa fancy looking
hap, with long curly hair hanging down his
ack, and his boots as shiny as the face of an
p-country nigger! I called him into the mid
lo of the road, and asked him a civil question,
nd a civil question, you know Brooks, calls
or a civil answer, all over the world. L says,
ays I, 'stranger, can you tell me where Col.
lives?' and what do you think was the
mswer—'Go to h —, you fool."
"Well, Brooks, 1 knocks along, up and
lown, and about, until at last I finds out where
Jol. Lamar lives. I gets down and bangs away
it the door. Presently the door was opened by
is pretty, fine spoken, well dressed a woman as
sver you seed in your born days, Brooks. Silks!
•ilks thar, every day, Brooks!
Says I, "Mrs. Lamar, I presumo, madam,"
'ays I.
Si "I am Mrs. Lamar, sir."
" Well, madam," says 1, "I have come all tho
way from North Carolina to seo Col. Lamar—
to see about buying a tract of land from him
that's up in our parts."
Then says she, "Col. Lamar has rode out in
the country, but will be back shortly. Come
in, sir, and wail awhile. I've no doubt the Col.
will soon return;" and she had a smile upon that
pretty face of her's that reminded a body of a
spring mornin'.
"Well, Brooks, I hitched my horse to a brass
thing on the door, and walked in."
"Well, when I got in I sees the flocr all cov
ered with the nicest looking things! nicer than
any patched work bed quilt you ever seed in
yout life, Brooks; 1 was trying to edge along
around it, but presently 1 sees a big nigger step
ping right over it. Thinks I, if that nigger can
go it, I can go it, too! So right over it I g 'es,
I and taking my seat right before a picture which
at first 1 thought was a little man looking in at
the window.
"Well, Brooks, there I sot waiting and wait
ing for Col. Lamar, and at last he did come,
but they began to bring in dinner. Thinks I
to myself, here's a scrape. But I made up my
mind to tell her that, if she asked me to eat, to

tell her with a genteel bow, that 1 had no occa
sion to eat. But, Brooks, she didn't ax me to
cat; she asked me if I'd be so good as to carve
that turkey for iter, and she did it witii one of
them lovely smiles that makes the cold streaks
run down tho small of a fellers back.
"Certainly, Madam," says I, and I walks up
to the table: and there was on one side of the
turkey a great big knifo as big as a Bowie
knife, and a fork with a trigger to it on the
other side.
"Well, I falls to work, and in the first effort
I slashed tho gravy about two yards ovor the
whitest table cloth you ever seed in your life,
Brooks! Well I I felt the hot steam begin to
gather about my cheeks and eyes. But, I'm
not a man to back out for trifles, so I makes
another e fort, and the darned thing took a
flight and lit right in Mrs. Lamar's lap?
"Well, you see, Brooks, then I was taken
with a blindness, and the next thing I remem
ber, was upon the Italy a kicking. Well, by ,
this time I began to think of navigating. So I
goes out and mounts Rosum, and puts for j
North Carolina! Now Brooks, you don't blame
mc, do you!"
LATE ARRIVAL.
FROM
THE SEAT OF WAR,
GEN. WORTH WITH TWO THOUSAND MEN
ON THE MARCH TO MONTEREY—THE MEX
ICANS TWELVE THOUSAND STRONG
PROBABLE BATTLE AT MONTEREY-GEN.
TAYLOR'S WHOLE FOR .E ABOUT TO
MOVE ON MONTEREY.
The steamship Alabama, Capt. VVindie, ar
rived at New Orleans on the 28th ult.. from
Brazos Santiago, whence she sailed on the 24th.
We copy the following from the Picayune ex
tra.
Capt. Windle reports that Gen. VVoith with i
2000 men, had left Camargo and proceeded 75
miles on his route towards Monterey. This '
report is no doubt premature. We havo late
dates from Camatgo, which represent that ac* I
tive preparations were going on to move at an
early day. On this subject wo refer to the let
ters below. We have others, yet later, hut they
i contain nothing to confirm the report that Gen.
Worth had moved from Camargo. Tho report
probably grew out of the advance of Capt. i
: Duncan's party, mentioned in cur corresp nd
] once.
Since writing the above, we have received
' the American Flag of the 23d inst., which thus
j notices the report:
From Camargo. The steamer Virginian re
j ports having crossed Gen. Wortli and his com
j tnand, consisting of the Bih infantry and two
companies of the artillery, over the Sun Juan
River, on the 13th inst. Gen Worth, says our
infoimailt, received orders to march to the vi!- i
lage of China and remain there until further !
advised. This may or may not be so; wo arcj
inclined to believe that there is a little more of!
the may not than may. It would ho hardly j
I Forth while for the commander of this expe
dition to start at all if he had lo stop at eighty
five miles.
A letter dated the loth inst., from San Fer-j
nando, announces the arrival thereof the Tex
an regiment of Mounted men three days pievi- ]
ously, in fine health and spirits.
The late report that Capt. Godfrey Pope, of
! the Kentucky volunteers, had been shot by a
j sentinel, is pronounced a fabrication.
The following is a letter to the Picayune, ;
dated Camargo, August 11th.
Capt. Duncan, with the small party of Tex- |
an Rangers, recoutly sant out on a reconnois- ■
sance into tho interior, got hack this morning. l
after having scouted the country on the other 1
side of the San Juan as far as Sural vo, a plea- J
sant town half way to Monterey. On the se
cond day Capt. McCulloch was sent into Mier j
very much indisposed. The night before, he {
! shot a Mexican, who was caught on an Aincr-'
I iean horse and who attemped to escape by run-
I ning. The fellow broke[ti,rough tho chaparral,
| and made a good race for his life; but McC. i
j was too fast (or him.
| On the second night, after a forced march of
great length, Capt. Duncan threw his men at
different points around the town of-ELmta Agu
da, having learned that a Mexican officer nam
ed Rumirer was in the place with a detachment
of recruits for Canales. So complete was the j
surprise that Capt. D. was enabled to reaeh a j
ball room in the centre of the town, where a 1
grand fandango was then in full blast, without'
a soul suspecting his approach. His object was !
to tako any Mexican officers prisoners that
might be there stationed in the place, and sup-!
posing that they might be at the fandango, hej
ordered all within the room not to move, after
telling them, in the first place, that every ave-!
nue to the town was guarded by the Rangers, j
Notwithstanding this order, some of those in
side the room went covertly out and endeavor- j
ed to leave the town; but one of them was shot
dead in the attempt, and another had his arm
shattered by a rifle ball from one of ihe Texans.
The latter was brought back to tho fandango
room, where his wound was dressed in one cor
ner, tho dance going on tho while at the re
quest of Capt. D., although with not as much
spirit jas jit might. Finding that he could
get hold of no prisoners of importance, the
commander of the party continued his march
to Seralvo, arrived there without hindrance or
molestation, and after an examination of the
place, returned in safety byway of Agna Leg
tias and Mier.
Seralvo, it is thought, will be made a depot,
offering every facility in the shape of good
water and a commanding position. The road
on the other side of San Juan will also be cho
sen as the best by which to move the army, al
though a portion may inarch byway of China.
The news from Monterey leads every one to
suppose that the Mexicans intend making a
bold stand there, and offering every resistance
to Gen. Taylor in their power. Recruits and
regulars are concentrating at that point, the for
tifications arc being strengthened, and the great
est activity prevails. A force of 1000 well ap
pointed cavalry arrived at Saltillo a few days
since, and report new has it that Torrejon has
been sent down with a large party of mounted
men to cut off Col. Hays. I hope he may find
Hays, for that officer will be glad to see him.
Gen. Persifer F. Smith arrived here this
morning. He is to take command of the 2d
Brigade, cqmposed of the 6th and 7th Regi
ments of U S. lDlaotry.
SAT UK DA Y JVM iiiN SEPTEMBER 5, 1846.
A loiter dated Camargo, Aug. 14, says:
An American arrived in town to-day from
Monterey, who, I am told, reports that there
are 12,000 rnnclieros and regulars (4000 regu
lars) collected at that place already. Many ol
this force are from the Rio Grande. They speak
confidently of whipping our army. It is ru
mored about the camp, too, that ('apt. Duncan,
who left hero day before yesterday, to recon
noitre some 30 leagues distant, was yesterday
on Canales's trail, with a fair prospect of over
taking him.
Gen. Twiggs was to have left Matamoras
yesterday, with the remainder of the troops that
are destined for Monterey. On his arrival here
it is believed that a new organization of brig-
I ades will take place.
| Another letter dated the 15th, from the same
I place, says:
| Since my letter of yesterday, 1 have learned
j that soon alier McCulloch's party left Ciiina,
! somo weeks ago, a Mexican named Savriego,
| raised four or live hundred men and started off,
as he told the people there, in pursuit, lie was
I careful, however, not to overtake tho Rangers,
i but learning that our troops were leaving Mata
; moras, and thinking that none were left to de-
I fend the place, made up his mind to lelako it,
• but unfortunately for his plan, he soon found
that a certain Col. ilays was there. Tin y have
it here that tho Colonel met him and gave his
men a drubbing, in true Texan style, but this
is probably nothing more than camp rumor.
The Texan infantry are to be disbanded to
day oi to-morrow, and will nearly all return
home. Tltoy were six months' men.
P. S. tiaturdny Evening-. In addition to
the report given above, written this morning, 1
will slate what 1 have since heard from a gen
ileman well informed on the subjects therein
alluded to.
A man has arrived from Monterey, who
states that lrotn the number of troops there,
and the feeling of the inhabitants, it would be
imprudent for Gen. Taylor to move upou that
place with less than 10,000 well disciplined
men.
Savriego, who 1 mentioned as having threat
ened to cut McCulloch's party to pieces, and
to take all Matam ras, is a noted robber. 1
only hope ho may fall into the hands of the
Texans. Thereconnoitering party which start
ed from here the other day, under Cupt. Dun
can, left McCulloch sick at Mier. lie has re
covered. The party went on in the direction
of Jeralma.
Tho 2d regiment of Texan mounted men,
under Col. Wood-, came up this morning, and
a regiment ofOhiu volunteers have just arrived,
on board tho steamer Roberts. Tho Louisville
Legion encamped below town last evening. I
| hear of very little sickness among the men who
have arrived.
The army will probably inovo on to Monte
rey by two separate routes, clearing the conn
try for a considerable extent on cither side and
i between the two roaiis.
The laundresses, or camp women, at this
J point will be sent back to Matamoras early
! next week—a pretty sure sign we shall soon he
; on the march.
Another letter from Camargo, dated August
14, complains of tho extraordinary heat, but
! says the health of the troops is good. Thero
| are now about 11,000 volunteers arid 3,000 re
gulars on the Rio Grande. The lcttor adds:
The great camp below the town is already
i over a mile long, the lino of tents averaging
about twelve deep. I saw nearly all the troops
: out, this evening, drilling in battalions. The
: 4th artillery were drilling as infantry, likewise
i all the artillery except the light. A portion of
i the 4th armed with muskets with peicussion
| locks, and it is easy te distinguish them from
the rest when the battalion goes through the
exercise of loading and firing. This regiment
I is about 800 strong, and is commanded by Col.
j Child, a most efficient and gallant officer. The
j 3d infantry is said to he the finest in its ap
i pointments, although small in numbers, of any
\in the army. Its neatness is proverbial, every
\ musket looking like burnished silver, and every
article of their accoutrements corresponding.—
! Col. Hitchcock, who is, unfortunately for the
; service, sick and absent, belongs to this corps.
The marching will hereafter be principally
j dotieat night. 1 should like to be able to go
| on with Gen. Worth's command, which will
| start in advance next week. I should pity tho
Mexican arrny that would have the temerity to
j meet this brave officer in the field, for he is de
j termined to do something brilliant, at all haz
| ards.
! LATER FROM YUCATAN— Another Outbreak.
Tho Picayune has advices from Merida und
; Campeachy to the sth ult. Thore had been an
! outbrcuk at Valladolid,incited by an individual
anxious to gain the seat occupied by Governor
Barbachano.
The grito or popular cry of the sedition was
"Down with the Taxes." The insurgents ob
tained possession of the quarters of their troops,
seized their arms, and were fortifying their po
sition, but abandoned it straightway upon
learning of tho approach of Col. Garnboa at the
head of 200 troops. They instantly retreated
to Tixliualactum, two leagues distant from
Vulladolid. There being called upon to sur
render, thoy quietly laid down their arms,with
out a gun being fired, and the leaders of this
magnanimous insurrection were seized and turn
ed over to tlio proper tribunal for trial.
Other than this outbreak and the excitement
caused by the airival of Gen. Rissadro, from
Havana, tho peninsular was perfectly quiet,
Tho declaration of different Departments of
Mexico in favor of Santa Anna, tho Siglo XIX,
the official organ of Yucatan, comes out very
boldly for his cause.
EPFES, THE MURDERER. Eppes, the mur
derer of young Muir, (the New York corres
pondent of the Boston Post says,) is attached
to some of the aristocratic families of the Old
Dominion, and through this influence will un
doubtedly elude pursuit. Do you not recollect
(asks tho writer) the Mr. Eppes who married,
i think, the niece of Mr. Jefferson, a'nd who
was at one time a conspicuous member of Con
gress? General Jacks m onco threatened to
cut his ears off. Rice Garland, the Louisiana
judge, who roams at large, branded with tho
crime of forgery, is a native of Virginia, and is
said to bo a relative of Eppes. Eppes was for
many years in the habit of spending the winter
in Washington, among associates not of the
best reputation
THE NEWS BY THE STEAMER. BRI
TANNIA.
The intelligence brought by the steamer
Britannia, (the arrival of which at Boston, on
Thursday, with Liverpool dates to the I9lh
ult. wo briefly announced yesterday,) is very
meagre. No event of the least importance had
occurred.
Among ttie passengers who arrived in the
Britannia, are the . Hon. Louis McLane, our
late Minister to the Court of St. James, with
his lady and daughter.
The money market is easy, and for business
cash can be had very readily.
The produce markets are tolerably active,
both as regards the home and the export trade.
Indian corn has risen to 325. per quarter
The accounts of the potatoe crop continue to
be disastrous.
The cotton market has been in a quiescent
state. The sales on the 18th, at Liverpool,
were estimated at 6,000 bales. Speculators
have taken 700 American, and have exported
500 hales. 1000 bales, consisting 800 Bahia,
wero sold at Od to C l-8d; 200 Per nam at 6 1-4
aG 3-bd. The market closed dull. In the ma
nufacturing districts business is by no means
active. However, the news recently recoived
from the United States will give a new impe
tus to trade.
American hams are selling at 355. to 435.
There is a good demand for beef and pork, and
Into prices are fully supported. Lard, in kegs,
is selling at 355. to 135.; and in barrels at 355.
to 33c. Cheese of good quality is very scarce
at Liverpool. Parcels of indifferent quality
have been sold at 355. to 455. per cwt.
The popularity of the now Pope is unbound
ed. Tiic new Papal Tariff makes groat nduc-1
tions on woollen manufactures, cotton goods,!
sugar and coffee.
The Cobdei) testimonial has reached -C65,-
600.
There has been storms and floods in England
and great falls of rain, which have injured the
crops severely.
The French Chambers have terminated, and
great has been the success of the Guizot minis
try. The majority in the new Chamber is ex
pected to he one hundred, and it may possibly
exceed that number. The King has opened
the Chambers with a short speech.
Effects of the American Tariff in England.—
Several markets have experienced the effects
of the liberal tariff which goes into operation
in the United States on the Ist of December.
Iron has already advanced in price, and the
woollen manufactories of Yorkshire are linn '
and improving. |
House of Lords. Parliament is expected to
rise about the 28th of August. On the 17th the
House of Lords passed the Sugar bill.
House of Commons. The destitution of Ire
lund occupied the House ot Commons on Mon
day. A sum of money has be n appropriated
to employ the poor of Ireland.
Sanatory Regulations. A public meeting has
been held in the British metropolis lately, for
the purpose of taking measures to prevent the
spread of disease. Although some contended
that a few cases of Asiatic cholera had appear
ed, the general feeling of the meeting was op
posed to the conclusion.
The Ocean Race. The steamer Cambria ar
rived out iti ten days and sixteen hours. The
steamer Great Britain, which sailed same day,
arrived out in thirteen days and ten hours.—
The packet ships Fidelia and Holtengeun,lrave
also arrived out. The steamer Great Britain
had a detention at sea of eighteen hours, in re
pairing her driving chains.
Stale of Trade. At Manchester there is no
change to report in the Cloth market since this
day week. The favorable commercial news
from the United States have made the market
what may ho called firm in printing cloths of
good quality. There is an advance hut a slight
one. The demand continues good.
At Bradford the wool market is well suppli
ed with all kinds of combings, arid the business
doing is barely an average, as the prices are
too high to induce the spinners to buy, except
to supply immediate wants. Our cotton mar
ket has been active, and upon some kinds of
goods an advance has been given. The wool
market continues inactive and prices nearly
stationary.
TREASURY NOTES. The amount of Trea
sury notes outstanding on the Ist instant was
$1,090,864, of which $660,000 were issued un
der the law passed at the late session of Con
gress.
DROWNED. Mr. James Poole, a resident of
Camden, N. J., was drowned on Wednesday
evening, while bathing.
WASHINGTON NAVY YARD. Cupt. Charles
S. McCauley, a popular and highlyeesteemed
officer of the Navy, has been appointed to the
command of the Navy Yard at Washington,
which ne assumed on the Ist instant, in the
place of Commodore Siiubrick, appointed to
the command of the Pacific Squadron.
RAILROAD ACCIDENT. Mr. George Welch,
who is about sixty-eight years of age, arid deaf,
and who did not probably observe the cars, was
run over and dreadl uily irjured on the railroad
near Rochester, New York, a few days ago.
EXPENSIVE FOLLY. Rev. Mr. Dear, Bap
tist missionary, states that the Chinese are sup
posed to spend $3G0,000,000 for incense to bum
before their idols. This is one dollar for every
inhabitant in the empire, old and young, and
it is only for a single item in the support ol
: idolatry.
NICE FOR THE LADIES. WhetTa steamboat
arrives at lowa with youug ladies on board,
the bachelors crowd on the wharf as our cab
men do, and sing out "Have you a husband
Miss? Will you have a husband?"
SERIOUS STAGE ACCIDENT. A stage, with
ten passengers, was upset in descending a hill,
near Glens Falls, on Saturday. Mrs. Judge
Fine, of Ogdonsburgh, had her arin and hand
badly broken and crushed, and her hand severe
ly wounded. A daughter of Judge Fine was
also a good deal hurt. Mr. Clark, of Ogdeng
burgh, had his shoulder dislocated. For this
calamity, and for many others, a dnken dri
ver is responsible

DR. JOHNSTON,
a distinguished graduate from one of the first Co
leges i tithe United States, which may he seen try his
I Diploma; also, a member of the Royal College ol
J'urgeons and Licentiate of the Apothecary's Hall,
j London; and the greater part of whose life has be' ii
| spent in the first hospitals of Europe and America,
[via- those ol London, Paris and Philadelphia, may
be consulted on all diseases, hut more particularly
A CERTAIN DISEASE.
When the misguided andimprudeni votary of plea
sure finds he has imbibed the seeds of this painful dis
ease, it too often happens that an ill-timed senseol
shame, or dread of discovery, deters him from apply
ing to those who, from education and respectability
can alone befriend him, delaying till the constitutional
symptoms of thia horrid disease make theirappear
ance, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose,
nocturnal pains in the head and limbs.dininessof sight,
deafness, nodes on the shin bones and arms, blotches
I the head, f&ceai'd extremities, progressing on with
frightful rapidity, till at last tire palate of the month or
i the hones of the nose fall in and the victim of this aw
! l ul disease becomes a horridobject of cotiimlserutlon,
. till death puts a period to iris dreadful sufferings, by
| sending him to "that bourne whence no traveller re
iitrns." To such, therefoto, Dr. JOHNSTON pledges
himself to preserve tile most inviolable secrecy;and,
from his extensive practice in the first hospitals of
Europe and America, he can confidently recommend
a safe and speedy cure to the unfortunate victim of
: this iiortid disease.
It is a melancholy fact, that thousands fail victim
to this horrid disease, owing in ihe unskillfulness oi
men, who by the use of thai deadly poison, mercury,
ruin the constitution, and either send the unfortunats
suffer to an untimely grave, or else make the residua
of his life miserable.
GONDII I! lIU.A AND GLEET CURED, by tits
most speedy and the most pleasant remedy known t
no other physician. It requires no restraint of diet,
or hindrance from business—it is mild, safe and effi;
Cacinus, eradicating every symptom of this affection,
without causing otlo r diseases, such as JSTKICTCRB
and AFFECTION? OF THE RLADOER and .T.OSTRATB
GLAND, which impyrics ; rid quacks so < .ten create
their noxious drugs and filthy infections.
STRICTURES—when there is a partial suppres
sion of urine, accompanied with uneasiness in ths
parts, ora frequent desire to make water,it is called
Stricture. Yet this disease may exist, and none oi
these symptoms be perceptible, or.if at all, they ars
so slight as to pass unnoticed; hence, we find thou
sands laboring under this affection who are entirely
unconscious of it— such persons become weak in ths
parts, seldom have children, and in the laier stages of
this complaint are incapable of enjoying Marriage—
their systems beenine deranged, particularly the
stomach, inducing symptoms of dyspepsia; also affec
tions of the mind, peculiar fits uI melancholy, Btc.
Ac. which may end in some dreadful disease of the
nerves, and will either ca .sea premature death or
else make lira rest of life miserable. To such per*
sons, Dr. JOHNSTON offers the most speedy remedy
I that can be obtained in the United State:;.
IX?- Read Dr. J.'s Treaties on Veneral.etc. etc.
TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE,
j Voting men who have injured themselves by a ccr
| tain jiractice indulged in when alone—a habit ire
quently learned from evil companions, or at school—
the effects of which are nightly fell even when asleep,
and if not cured renders marriage impossible, and de
stroys both mind and body.
What a pity that a young man, tiie hope of hit
country, and the darling of his parents, should b
snatched from all the prospects arid enjoyments of
life by the consequences of deviating from the path of
nature and indulging in a rertain secret habft. ,-tuch
persons before contemplating
MARRIAGE,
Should reflect that a sound and body arc Ihe most
necessary requisites to promote connubial happiness.
Indeed, without these, the journey through life be
comes a weary pilgrimage, the prospect hourly dark
ens to the view—the mind becomes shadowed with
despair,and filled with the melancholy reflection, that
the happiness of another becomes blighted with our
own.
CONSTITUTIONAL DEBILITY.
Dr J. addresses young men and all who have inj
jiired themselves by private Si improper indulgences,
IMPOTENCE-WEAKNESS OF THE GENI
TAL ORGANS.
Loss of virile power is the penalty mostfreq neatly
paid by those who give a loose rein or license totbeir
passions. Young persons arc too apt to commilex
cesses from not being aware of the dreadful effects
that may erfsUe. Although impotency occurs from
stricture, depositee in the urine, gravel, and from nu
merous other causes, yet the abuse of the sexual or
gans, by excessive vencry or self-pollution; purlieu'
larly the latter is the more frequent cause of it. Now
who that understands the subject will pretend to deny
that the power of procreating the species is lost soon
er by those who practice the solitary vice than by the
prudent. Resides, by premature impotence the di
gestive functions HID deranged, and the physical and
mental powers weakened by a 100 frequent and too
great excitement of the genital organs. Parents and
guardians are often misled, with respect to ths
causes or sources of disease in their sons and wards.
How often do they ascribe to oilier causes the wast
ing oftlic frame, idintcy, madness, palpitation of ths
heart, indigestion, derangement of the nervous sys
tem, cough and symtoins, indicating consumption,
when the truth is that they have been caused by in;
riulging in a pernicious, though alluring practice, del.
tructive to both mind and body.
INVOLUNTARY SEMINAL EMISSIONS.
Of this distressing disease, which is the common
result of 'he above mentioned secret habit, but a very
brief description formally reasons, can be given here.
The complaint comes on gradually. It begins by a
too hasty discharge of semen in copulative and pas
sionate dreams. Such emissions being too hasty,
have no power, while the erections are feeble, imper
fect and soon over. As the disorder grows worse,
the discharges or emissions become more easily ex
cited and trequent, often brought on by lasciviotn
ideas, or by merely touching the part. In this deplo
case, the emissions take place without any
pleasure and without erection, and in this debilitated
and sensitive state of the organs the direful effects ol
pollution so ruinous to health, 'nke place day and
uight. Pale, emaciated, and weak, the unhappy vic
tim of artificial gratification complains of pain in ths
head and hack, has a languid look, dimness of sight,
flushing of the face when spoken to, lowness of spi
rits, and a vague dread of something, often starting
with terror at a sudden eight or sound. He also
loatlts society, ftom an innate sense of shame, and
feels a dislike to all bodily and mental exertion.—
Distressed, and Ins mind fixed upon his miseries, hi
slyly searches every source tha promises relief.
Ashamed to make known his situation to his friends,
or ihose who by education, study,and practical know
ledge, are able to relieve him, he applies to the igno
rant and designing, who filch him of his pecuniar
substance,sod instead of restoring him to heatltl),
leave him t" sigh over his galling disappointment; th
last scene of the drama winds up with mania,cata
lepsy. epilepsy or tome terrible disease of the nerves
and death drops the curtain, hurrying the unhapp
patient to an untimely tomb, where his IViends
totally ignorant of the real cause.

QO~ Ad vice to the Poor GRATIS
TAKE NOTICE. DR. JOHNSTON has had a greatet
practice in the above affections than any physician in
the IT. S. He also possesses an advantage ouer all
others, from the factof his havingstudied in the great
Hospitals of both Europe and this country, viz: those
of England, France, Spain, Russia, Denmark, Ac.,
and the Hospitals of Philadelphia. Thousands in
lialtimore can testify that ne cured them alter every
other mi an s had failed, innumerable certificates
could be given, but deli acy prevents it—lor unat
man of seeped ability would like lie name exposed
none— besides there are so many persona without
know edge or character who advertise these things
with face names that alone would forbid it. .US
