THE subscriber, onthe decease of the late
Dr. William Chambers, took into his
possession the personal estate of the deceased,
and found prepared a large quantity of Dr.
Chamber’s Remedy for Intemperance.
He hereby informs the public, that be has
disposed of all the medicine so found, to Dr.
James H, Hart, and Mr. Andrew M. Fanning,
of this city.
In making this disposition, the subscriber
has been actnated by a due regard to the inter
ests of the heirs of the intestate, as well as
from a wish to give the most extensive use to
the virtues of the discovery,whatever they may
be; and he can further add, with confiaence,
that the gentlemen who wilt hercafler be the
venders of the Remedy for Intemperance, as
prepared by the imventor, have been intimately
connected with Dr. Chambers in his life time,
have been his agents in compounding the med=-
icine, and are acquainted with its composit on.
Public Adminstraio., &e.
g 3 The medicine will hereafier he prepared
and sold by the subseribers, who alone aie in
possession of the original recipe of the inven
tor, at the office of the late Dr. C in the buasc
ment story of Rutgers’ Medical College, in
Duane-strect,east side of . roudway, and at the
medical store of Dr. Hart, corner of Broadway
and Chaimbers street, three doors from Wash=
ington Hall, New York.
The astonishing suceess which this remedy
has obtained in restoring habitual inebriates to
sobriety, has established its virtues beyond all
contradiction, and supersedes the necessity of
anv further comment, ¢
The remedy is as innocent as it is effeciual;
so much so, that it is often given to children in
febrile complaints, :nd frequently used as a
family medicine for Dyspepsia, §e. Ail that
is required, to ensure its specific cffect, is to
abide strictly by the directions. Tt is rut up
in packages sufficient for ono individual ¢ re,
nng accompanied with ample directions for its
use, signed i the hand-writing of the subscri
bers, without which none arc genuine, We are
induced to adopt this measure, as in conse
quence of the great celebrity which Dr. Cham
bers’ medicine has obtained, there have been,
and doubtless will be, many spurious imita=
tions. On enclosing to us the usual price, §35,
postage paid, the medicine can be sent by
mail, To those who are unable to pay, on
personal application of the individual at our
office, the medicine will be administered gra
tis. JAMES H. HART, M, D.

““1 hate him for the lia he spoke,
I hate hum for the vow he broke.”” MORTON.
“There might have been destiny ; but no .
Our hiearts deny it j—and so young, so fair, .
Good without effort, great without a T
e eel IOW Lhere !
How many tiesdid that stern moment tear !
'rom thy sires, to his humblest {menial’s] breast
Is Ilnkcdylho electrical chuin of that despair,
Whose shock was ax an earthquake's, and oppress’d,
The land which lov'd thee so, that none could love
thee best.”
““ Forgive thee, forgive thee!" respopded
Rosalind, indeed I will, and even if thou wert |
to blast me, still wonld I linger fondly on thy
bosom, love thee for thyself, think all thy
cruelties but acts of kindness, hang to thee as
my last hope and solace, and dying, bless the
Gods that made thee. But we will never part;
the world may frown, the malignant foes to
virtuous love may assail us, the tempests may
how! around us, the wild winds whistle, and
the thunders roar, still sccure in our mutual
love, we will smile at the iropotent railings of
the elements, and in some secluded cottage,far
from the hauunts of men, breath our lives out,
and hail the retusn of each succeeding day,
that dawns, but to add new joys, and unnum
bered blessings!™’
* Enthusiastic, unilninking girl,”” exclaimed
O'Connor, * lct nat such idle imaginings, such
passionate emotions fill thy gentle breast, for
we oon must part, and part forever. I have
no hope of Liappiness, no prospect of prefer
ment; all, all is dark and gloomy ;—the world
and I have long since closed our fi’iondships,
and I bate it Buat for thee, Rosalind, would
I'remain in my native country - tor thee I would
be tappot Fut what avails it, that I wish g
remam awmong the native lulls and forests of
my ancestors! Tho dic s cast, I must away;
hence then i wdle hopes, all ficeting joys, and
every flickering ray of happiness!”’
O’Conner would unceremoniously have
left the dwelling of Rosalind, but she detained
him; and begged cre he left her, that he would
not depart, till he had given assurance, that
he would return again, and not leave her, in
all the distressing agonies of susnense.
I cannot longer remain said he, I must ab
sent myself, lest in a moment of imprudence, I
make promises, and pledges which I shall nev
er be onabled to perform;— pledges and prom
ises, which in the end, would only prove acts
of duplicity and double dealing, and injurious
to the happiness of us both. ¢My situatian
in life is well known to you, my good Rosa
lind”* he continued, ** and why then would you
urge me to the acceptance of your society,
when it must be ajparent, that that accept
ance, will only tend to our mutual unhappi
ness, and lead to cansequences which both of
us ought to study to avoid. Of wealth I am
destitute, friends I have none, and if I should
consent to the gratification of your wighgs—if
we were wedded, I should not only violate the
principles which have ever regulated my con
duct, and which ever shall regulate it, but
introduce you to those scenes of sorrow and
a.viction, which when enthusiasm has subsided
will only compel you to weep over your own
folly and sorrow amnid your own mortification—
sclected solicited and courted, -
“Talk not of wealth” replicd Rosalind,
“docs the possession of gold render the bed of
auguish less afllicting, or ean it eecure to us
the joys of other worlds - can it purchase hap
piness——disarm the malignant foe, still the
raging tempest, or smoth the passage to the
tomb. Wealth! I despise, and I hate it, for
it is that which burets the ties of friendship
ausunder - destroys the hopes of the constant,
malkes the marriage bed the loathsome recep
tacle of crime, begets unkindly feelings be
tween all ranksof rociety, and shows its bale
ful infirences even among the hallowed rela-
tions which ought ever to exist between par
ent and child, between the lover and his
mistress' For me, I know of no wealth, like
that which can be afforded by the unfailing,
unerring sources of mutual love, and to thee
can I oxclaim, in the langnage of the faithful,
the heroic daughter of Priali, .
“ Iflove be treasurs, we'll be wond'rous rich;
I have <o much, my heart will surely break with’t
Vows can’t express it.
» Y R ~ - »
Oh! T will love thee, aven in madness love thaes
Though my distracted senses shonld forsake me,
I'd find some intervals, wheo ms poor breast
EBhould "swage itzell, and be et loose to thine,
Though the baur aarihbe all one casting plics,
Its roots our food, some elitt our habitation,
'l make this wrm a pdlow for thing head;
And o thon sighing Iy'st and swell’d with sorrow,
Creop to thy bosom, pour the balm of love
Into thy soul, and kiss thee to thy rest!
Then pratse our God,and watch thee till the morning.*s
“ ("ease, idle girl,”” said O'Connor, these are
but the wild and unsatisfactory exclamations
of an enthugiastie virgin; soon, soon, will they
be forgottens and when I am gone, as I soon
shall be, thy attachments wiill be bestowed
npon some moro favored one, and thou wilt
forget, that such a wretch as T am, ever exist
ed. It was but yesterday, and I was nothing
to thee, to-merrow I shall he the same, the
same noglected forsaken being that I was!"

CuiLpe HaroLp, Canto IV
thou wilt be held dear to remembrance, and
as I reflect upon what thou wert, the recollec
tion will dispel all former gl.om, and [ shall
be bappy.”
Some four or five hours had O'Connor and
Rosalind enjoyed each other’s society; yet
time passed off' as on the wings of an eagle,
and;neitlier were sensible of the lateness of the
hour, till the clock struck twelve, and remind
ed them of the impropriety of their remaining
any longer in a scparate apartment; and O'-
Connor would nave hade her farewell, had she
not followed him to the door, and once more
detained him for the moment. ¢ You must
not go,”’ said Rosalind, * till you have prom
ised that you will, before you leave the coun
try forever, once more allow me the pleasure
of your society.”” *‘lf another interview can af
ford you any satisfaction,’”” said O’Connor, ¢ 1
will most assuredly afford one, but to me it
scems that it were far better for us never to meet
again, since these interviews are productive of
nothing but pain, and in the end, may only
tend to an augmentation of that bitter anguich
which I now too sensibly feel, and which I
would gladly eacape;’* and having pressed her
hand to his kips, bade her farewell, with a
promise, that he would again visit her, before
he departed for those regions, among whose l
cities, andscenes of bustle, he had detecrmined
to spend the remainder of his daye, |
As he wandered homewards, he meditated
on the extraordinary incidents of the evening,
and although he ascribed 4o the violently ex
pressed feelings of Rosalind,to enthusiasm, and
a fuvered imagination, for the first time, he be
gan to reflcct on the possibility of ultimate hap
piness; and cre he was aware of it, ho half
consented to remain at home, pursne a new
course of life, and if possible, undertake some
new enterprize, which might repair his lost for
tunes, and enable him to possess her, whom he
“‘loved not wisely but too well.”” Though aware
ot the caprice of.woman, upd satisfied that the |
extravagant indulgence of passion, is too often
the harbinger of inconstaney and of the de
cline of honourable and faithful attachment,
“he could not suspect the fidelity af Rosalind,
nor couid he for a moment, think, that she,
who had evinced so much attachment, and so
undisguisedly declared her sentiments, when
they were not called for, would ever swerve,
or prove ungrateful. If, for a moment he had
indulged in conjectures like these, he would
have escoped the deep mortification, whichaf.
terwards attended him, and avoided the men
tal anguish, which infidelity and duplicity can
inflict. But his was an open, and a confiding
mind;—he was honorable; he supposed others
to bd so, nor could he believe, that Rosalind
would ever swerve from her vows, and declar
ed determinations,

* Tuw Mippresex Gazerre. This paper,
printed and published at Middletown, Cannec
ticut, has many claims an onr good will and
feelings, and we assure its Editor, that we are
not ingensible of the many obligations we owe
him, for the ‘kind courtesies and evidences of
friendship he has been pleascd to extend to us.
Inthe last number of the Gazette, we find the
following paragrapb, which is here copied,
simply, for the sake of giving it a candid re
“We heg leave to corret an errar under
which the fiditor of the Providence Cadet la
bours, relative to the *‘* Corarn Grove,” a
poem by Percival, winch has late]y been print
ed in the New-York Statesman, He suppas
as the lines ta have heon racently written —he
is mistaken. They were first published in the
second number of ¢ Crro,”’ some half a dozen
years ago, and wera then extensively copied
into the journals of the country; and we must
be allowed to express our surprisp, that this
bgautiful poem has never before fallem under
thso observation of our Providence brother,
whose knowledge on all matters connocted
with poetry, prose, and politics, and love, law,
and literature, is universally acknowledged.”’
We do not recollect of ever having read the
effusion of the .Coral Grove, before we pub
lished it in onr paper of the 22d ultimo; and if
we have, we have forgotten it,though it would
scem somewhat extraordinary, that any one
should forget so beautiful an effusion. But,
that our good friend may not be' ** surprised,””
we will state, that we were among those who
subscribed for Rercival's Cho; and althongh
wo rank ourselves among the warmest admir
ors of that _excelient poet, we must candidly
confess, that we never could read his Clio,
By this, we do not mean to detract one tittle
from the merits of that performance, but some
how or other, it was Lke lead to our taney,
and though we struggled hard to read ity the
objeet nover was effected. One night, it was
a dreadful cold night in the month of Junuary,
and the winds Whistied and ¢ the snow flew
like wild fire,”’ <= not daring te venture ont in
so rude a storm, we seated ourselves by the
fire-cide: and whilst the sighings of the tea
kettle, and the purrings of an old, faithful, and
vigilant tabpy cut, who was the terroe of the
rate, gave us warning of the approach or the
cold and icicled monarch of the season, we
undertdok to read the whole of Percival’s
Clio! " But alss! how vain, ompty end idle,
are all our projects! Weread, precisely two
angl twonty howes, by ** Shrewshury Clock,”
and whon we rose from tho deiigions feart, wo
had uot finwhed one half of the work; and of
ahat wo had road, no two linea could wo re”
member, though we took unwearigd pains to
do sO. There are a thousand merxits in those
numbers of Clio, that we have seen, but they
are sadly obscured by the expletives and ex
crescences of the author, who in writing too
wuoch, has often written too bad. ‘
Of Percivar, we will say, that he may be
ranked among the first poets of the age, and
though he does not poscoss the elasticity and
magic of Mou;-c, or the deeppathos of Southey
and Cooleridge, like the Eurl of Chathim, Le
“ stands alone;”” he is a poet of Lis own or
der, and will snecessfully compete, with many
of the favoured bards ot the world,
If we earefully overlook liis productions, we
shall find, he has written much good pociry—
much that wonld elicat the warmest applause
of the critie, though he has produced some
eflusions which are absolutely miserable. So

Shenstone, Spencer, Miiton, Savage, Steelns,
