WASHINGTON, Nov. 1", 18-16.
Interesting to Benevolent Associations. A
trial took place, yesterday, in the police office
of Justice J. L. Smith, which is worthy of pub
lic notice.
It appears that Mr. F. Scbnell, a member of
the Gorman Benovolent Society, who has been
regularly paying his dues for seven years, left
this city, some tiine since, on a visit to the
Springs in Virginia, for the bonufit of his
health. Mo was absent eighteen weeks, during
which time ho was sick. When ho returned,
he brought with him the certificate of a magis
trate and a doctor to this effect; which ho ex
hibited to the society when he applied for Ins
alimony. The officers refused to pay it, on the
ground that the twenty-second article of the
constitution declares, in effect, that unless a
member pay six months in advance, when he
leaves the city to reside elsewhere, he shall not
bo entitled to benefits.
Mr. Croutzfoldt, (although not a lawyer,)
appeared for Schnoll, and contended that .Mr.
Schnell was not a non-resident member at the
time of his absenco, ami, as a consequence, did
not come under that article of the constitution
—that he was merely a distant or absent mem
ber—that being so, ho was not required to pay
six months in advance—that his absence did
not oxtend to six months, and that he was us
much entitled to benefits as any other member
who paid his dues regularly, as he did through
a friend, wilh whom he had previously made
an arrangement for that purpose.
Mr. Giberson, (a lawyer,) counsel for the
Society, took Ihe opposite side. Mr. Schnell
was a non-resident member, having left the
city. The twenty-second article of the consti
tution required, in such case, that six months'
dues should bo paid in advance, which was not
dune, lie objected to the certificate of the
magistrate, as evidence—because it had not
the county seal, etc.
The puper was referred to Justice Smith,
that he might decide whether it should be ad'
wilted us evidence.
The Justice gavo his opinion that, though
the paper had not the seal, it was testimony
unless the constitution expressly required the
county sen I, in such cases.
The paper was, together with the certificate
of the physician, handed to the jury to be con
sidered as testimony; and, after a consultation
of fifteen minutes, they returned a verdict in
favor of Mr. Schnell for forty-six dollars.
The Society is chartered by act of Congress.
1 was not present at the trial, but was inform
ed of the facts by a gentleman whose impar
tiality would not lead him into error.

WASHINGTON, NOV. 18, 1816.
Important Trial—The Van A'ess Case. The
issue joined between Mary Ann Van Ness and
Cornelius P. Van Ness, administrator of John
P. Van Ness, came up before the Circuit Court
this morning. Counsel for the plaintiff, Messrs.
Gilpin, of Philadelphia, Brent, of Baltimore,
and May; for the defendant, Messrs. Cox, R.
G. Bradley, and Carlisle.
The jury being ernpannelled, Mr. Brent
opened the case, by telling them that the issuo
they were to try was, whether Mary Ann Van
Ness was, in truth and law, the widow of John
P Van Ness, and referring to the resignation
of the counsel which had first been engaged to
manage the case for the plaintiff, viz: Messrs.
Dallas, Dent, and Leo. He described the
character and history of the lato General Van
Ness, and also those of the lady, and said the
counsel would be able to show, by circum
stantial evidence, that Gen. Van Ness was
married to Mis. Conner, in the city of Phila
delphia, etc.
Mr. Carlisle, (for ex-Governor Van Ness,)
contended that this case was unparalloled in
the annals of tho Court. Wo live in a com
munity where crime never shot up such a
trunk or bore such fruits, and the pretensions
of the plaintiff could not bo justified except by
the grossest porjury and forgery. They would
show that tho letters purporting to bo from
Gen. Van Ness were forgeries, and adverted to
the fact that Mr. Bieut had taken an article of
assignment Irom the lady, which
Mr. Brent acknowledged; and, at a subse
quent stage of the proceedings,
Mr. Marbury was sworn, who said that, on
one occasion, he had taken an assignment from
a client to secure his fee.
This app ears to have been suggested to re
move any prejudice which might be entertain
ed towards Mr. Bient, and, as a consequence,
to prejudice his cause.
Mr. May, one of the counsel of the lady, read
the testimony of Mrs. Moulder, of Philadel
phia, at whoso house Mrs. Conner stopped,
when she visited that city, as to this fact, and
as to Mrs. Conner's conversation with an old
gentleman [said to he the late Gen. Van Ness]
at tho house of the lady mentioned. Also, the
testimony of several gentlemen of that city.
He likewise read tho petition of Mrs. Mary
Ann Van Ness, sworn to, stating that sho is
the widow of Gen. Van Ness, and praying the
Orphan's Court that the letters of administra
tion on tho estate, taken out by C. P. Van
Ness, ought to be revoked, and letters grant
ed to her instead. This is dated July ", 18 16.
Mr. Bradley, ono of the counsel for Mr. C.
P. Van Ness, read the answer of that gentle
man, in which ho says that lie has no knowl
edge or belief that the pretended marriage was
solemnized. Several of the letters accompa
nying the answor, spoke of a child, of which
the late Gen. Van Ness was said to be the fath
er, and urged upon Gov Vail Ness, his brother,
some action in "an important mutter," of which
he was left to judge by letters enclosed in an
envelope and previously sent to hiin.
The court room was crowded during the pro
ceedings. A larger report would have been
given had there not been many important
points which cannot be stated sufficiently accu
rate in a sketch, and if there were not appre
hensions that injustice might he done to the
very able gentlemen who opened the case.
Without coming to a conclusion, the court at
four o'clock, adjourned till to-inoirow morn

HNXPKKIKNUK INSURES SUCCESS.-
H J lilt. DOW has probably had more practice and
experience in curing diseases of a private nature
than generally falls to the lot of any one physician;
and within the last four years, he has no doubt cured
more of those difficult cases of private disease, such
as require practical experience, than all the physi
cians in Baltimore. The reason is that he applies
himself to the duties of iiis profession with untiring
zeal and industry in the investigation ol the disorders
to which he has confined his whole attention, and
has by this means discovered that the old fashioned
mode of doctoring symptoms only, does not succeed
so well as his plan of attacking the disease first—ex
tinguish that, and attend to the symptoms as may
best suit the case. His medicines are free from any
nauseous drug, anil are easy to lie taken, without in
ter fe.-int; with tin avocations of the patient.
TO SEAMEN AND OTHERS.
Dr. Dow would say that his medicines are free
from mercury and all other poisonous drugs; tlrey are
put up in a small ana compact form, and can be ta
ken without fear of exposure or hindrance from bus
iness, and except incase of violent inflammation, no
change ol'diei is necessary. For further particulars

vate Diseases in this city make immediate applica

success, but nioiely advises the afflicted who are not
acquainted Willi him, to observe that Ire has had an
extensive practice for the lust eight years, and during
that time lie has made such improvements in the
healing art, that he catfgal'ely guarantee a perfect cure
in all old Chronic cases, such as have baffled the skill
of some most eminent physicians.

To young men and olhers, who may have injured
themselves by improper indulgences,
IMPOTEN C Y- IMP UIS SAN CE.
One of the most frequent penalties paid by those
who give iinr- strained license to their passions, is a
loss of virile power. The young, unaware of the
f. arfttl results that may ensue are but too apt to com
mit excesses. Impotency may and does occur from
stricture, gravel, deposites in the urine, and from
many other causes; but by far the most frequent
source of it is abuse of the sexual organs, by exces
sive venery or self-pollution—particularly the last.—
It is a fact well known to those who understand the
mailer, that all those who practice the solitary vice
lose the power of pro-creating sooner than the more
prudent. Too great excitement of the genital organs
is, however, productive of o her effects besides pre
mature impotency; it tends to derange the diges*ive
functions nod weaken the physical and mental pow
efs. Thus parents and others are often deceived as
to the true source of the complaints of youth and
young men. It could be shown how the aitenuation
of the frame, palpitation of the heart, derangement
of the nervous system, cough, indigestion, and a
train of symptoms, indicative of consumption, are
ufen ascribed to wrong causes, when in reality they
are the consequences of an alluring and pernicious
practice, alike destructive to Hie mind and hodv.
DES PERTES SEMINALES IN VOL CNTAIRES.
The most common result of self-abuse is luvolun
tary Seminal emissions, for various reasons, but a
passing notice of this distressing complaint can he
j given here. It comes on very gradually. It com
! no nces by a precipitate emission of semen eit' er in
i coition or during lascivious dreams. The emissions
I are premature and without force, and the erections
| slight aad incomplete and soon subside. As the af
I lection increases, the emissions become more fre-
I quern and more readily excited, are induced merely
j by eratic ideas orthelei3t contact or nidation, and
take place without erection and without pleasure—
I sans secotisse et sans sensations volnptuese. In th's
| weak and susceptible condition of the organs—pol
lutions are liable lo occur both djy and night, gradu
al!} undermining the health.
The patient becomes pale, thin and weak, suffers
from pains in back and iiead, lias disturbed vision,
and a sickly languid look, and feels totally unfitted
for active bodily or mental occupation. II is mind
hiring constantly absorbed witli Ins sufferings, lie
eagerly peruses evi ty thing relative to his complaint.
Obliged to conceal his situation from his friends, and
ashamed to apply to those who from education,
knowledge and practical experience jare alone ahle
to assist him, he flies to some ignorant quack, by
whom his pecuniary means arc drained, for which
he only meets in return with bitter disappointment.
At length, epilepsv, catalepsy, mania, or some other
disease of the nervous system, makes its appearance,
and the patient is relieved from his horrid situation
bv a premature death, the cause of which had frc
quently been entirely overlooked by his unsuspecting
friends.
If this publication should meet the eye of any one
who, in the indiscretion asd imprudence nitendanton
youth should have brought oil himself any ot the evils
alluded to above, to such, Dr. Rogers offers his servi
ces, and pledges the most honorable secrecy He be
lieves that he has the means of remedying their suffer
ings and of obtaining for the in a permanent cure, If
such however should not be the case at least no loss
will he sustained by their applj ing to him, inasmuch
as '• lf no cure can he effected no pay viill be required."
AD VICE-CAUTION
Persens afflicted with Impotency must avoid the
alluring promisesandsmat eringaeqnirementsof Em
pirics and Uuacks. who, one and all, are perfectly
ignorani ot the innumerable causes of ihe affection,
and whose nostrums do much more harm than good.
No single plan of treatment is effectual; a variety of
causes must be removed by a variety of remedies. Dr
ROGERS is continually being applied to by persons
afflicted in this way, whose means have been ex
Itausnd by advance payments, and who receive no
benefit whatever from the commencement, ijifi

CONFESSION. I, the subscriber, publicly con-t
fess that I have been afflicted with a secret disease 1
ever since 1825; I had thirteen eminent physicians,
whose names are recorded at the French Medical
House; some of them abated the disease, but it al-1'
ways returned worse than befote, until it carried •
away both sides of my throat and pierced the top of ;
the palate. I also lost several bones of my nose and j
was almost blind of an eye, and my face was cover- '
ed with an immense quantity of scabs, between I,
which the skin was as red as scarlet, and 1 was in- ;
deed in a most deplorable condition, so much so that !
the learned professor S pronounced me incurable "
It was obvious to me, then, that a common doctor
could not extricate me from the jaws of death—for
they all follow Ihe same o d routine , with their train
of mercury, mixtures or pills, invented by ignorance j
and continued by cupidity, and do no good to any but J
the verniers. Several persons recommended Doctor.
HUET, of the Medical House, No. IB SOUTH FRE
DERICK STREET, as a scientific man and a rare
genius in those complaints. I went to him and he
pledged to cure me on written guaranty, I did not
hesitate at all on seeing so many likenesses of pa
tients who are living evidences of the many wonder
ful cures he has performed in almost every kind of
disease. Then he had my daguerreotype likeness
taken, and I took his medicine for about a year,
which completely cured me. He bad 110 n tny other
likeness taken, and both are to be seen at his oftice.
If this meets the eye of some wretched being in the
grasp of death as I was, let him fly to this praise
worthy philanthropist, whose deep knowledge of the
vital principles which animate and move the human
frame, are known in both hemispheres and 1 believe
from tny very soul (not forgetting thai I am on oath)
that his exquisite genius will discover as many new 1
and well appropriated remedies, as new diseases may
be formed. HENRY BRUMMER.

DESTRUCTIVEHABIT. HOW manyyouth spoil
their health by the hateful and dangerous practice of
solitary indulgence. This is very injurious to the in
dividuals, whose complexions becoming pale, and,
their bodies feeble, had digestion, their stomachs very
windy, and some pains are to be felt in the stomach,
many times in th lungsand elsewhere, according to
the duration of this destructive vice. I have seen a
great many youths carried to their graves before
twenty-seven years of age, for not having quit it and
be relieved in time.
Study frequently produces this affection, since the
head, strongly taxed, irrit tes the entire nervous sys
tem, although there is little propensity in nature to
pursue this vice during sleep, dreams are ready to
seduce the senses of the young victim, until he in
voluntarily becomes guilty of the weakness, from the |
effects of which all the skill of the medical profes
sion has much difficulty in saving him. It is this se
ries of circumstances which gives rise to the vaure,
the result of which terminates in nocturnal excite
ment.
During my residence in Paris, which lasted more
than a score of years, 1 had occasion to examine a
great many thousands of those cases which acquaint- 1
ed me with ali the peculiarities of that detestable
and injurious habit which soon or late will kill the
patient, or what is worse still, bring him to kill him
self.
Among the very many which I have treated and
cured there, I recollect a man affected with this mis
erable complaint, who on the eve of suicide came to
see me; the reading of a scientific journal which 1
published at that time, gave him some rayß of hope,
and lie detailed me his complaint as follows:
1 am a man of thirty odd years old, a portrait pain
ter by trade, and in easy circumstances, but ihe most
miseiable being in mind that ever lived, I never had
any intercourse with any being whatever hut myself.
From my boyhood I sought lonely places and indulg
ed in this v ce of nature, but soon alter my digestive
organs became weak and windy, hard digestions,
feebleness and above all so nervous that the least
noise made me jump with tearfulness, though I had
no fear.
You were right said he to call this conmiaint noc
turnal, for it was at night that I indulged Tie most in
rhat horrible practice, w hiclt debilitated me to such an
extent that 1 was unable to walk half a mile without
taking some rest, my parents were alarmed at the
stale of my health, called a doctor who suspected me
of this practice for lie turned every way to find nut
the truth, I denied all, even the knowledge of it, hut
lesolved to quit it, but it was in vain for I resisted all
the day long, hut at night the dreams came to seduce
my senses and ruined me. I thought if I got married
it might change the vice. Therefore sir I have come
to the conclusion to put myself unreservedly under
your cure, and if you don't fit me to gel married and
have a family, 1 will soon be out of this world.
First thing I lied to do, was to re-establish the dis
orderly organs of digestion, then to strengthen the de
bilitated organs in question, then another kind af
inr-dicine to break the violated habit of nature, after
which the patient found himself of a more lively dis
position, got martied and had several children before
I left Paris.
I will now cite another case which occurred lately
in my practice in Baltimore The patient presented
me the following certificate after b- ing cured
TO THE AFFLICTED OF THE SOLITARY
VICE. I am a man of thirty years of age, and have
been addicted in my boyhood to Ihe destructive habit
tinned Solitary Vice; I have learned it from had boys
and practiced it for aboul ten years, hut thank God 1
have quit it and recovered my health and strength
once more. Soon after the commencement of this
abominable practice instead of glowing strong, hear
ty, and blooming as youths generally do, mv health
impaired, my body feeble, anil my digestion difficult.
It was not long before my parents were somewhat
alarmed and sent for a physician who pronounced
me affected wilh a Liver Complaint—several other
doctors wete called in succession, some treated me
for Consumption and others for disease of the Heart,
! however tin y all agreed that I had the Dyspepsia.—
| When about 91) years of age I became fretful, tremb
| ling at lite least noise, and shunned all coin, any, par
j ticularly that of Females. I choosed to he alone
though I was not company to myself, and thousands
I and thousands of times 1 secretly desired that death
| would come to rid tne of my miserable existence (to
say no more.) The perusing of a little treatise trans
j lated from the French which fortunately fell into my
hands, instructed tne on ihe true cause of my suffer
ing, I then resolved to quit this nocturnal practice and
accordingly did so for several years, but that infernal
vice did not leave tnp, and it committed its depreda
tions in tny sleep—while in this precarious situation
I saw a treatise on this disease advertised in the Sun.
I bought it and found that it explained my disease so
minutely that I resolved to put myself unreservedly
under the care of its author—l did not hesitate much
for he showed me several unfortunate beings who
had spoiled their health as I did, among whom was a
young physician, and they nil indeed spoke so highly
of the skill, ability and experience of this truly learn
ed physician, that I cannot but join with them in re
commending him particularly in this complaint, for I
positively certify, that he perfectly restored me is
every respect, for at this present time I weigh forty
two pounds and three quarters more than I did two
years ago, and I sincerely thank the Almighty for hav
ing thrown me in the way of this good man.
