Balsam has the astonishing power of reliey ng

have been fairly tested for several years in the
cure of hundreds. It isa pure vegetable pro
duction, without a particle of mereury. The
proprietor has thought proper to offer it in this
torm for the convenience of persons afitieted
with discases of this nature; as there are many
young pecople who, for fear of exposure to a
medical man, will have recourse to the dar
gerous expedient of prescribing for themselves,
and taking indiscriminatcly pointed and pow
erful medicines to the risk and injury of their
constitutions, which the general knowledze of
thi= remedy will in a great measure obviate, as
there will be nothing else necessary but the
sirict observance of the rules and directions
laid down. Accompanying every ' ottle will
be found complete and full directions for the
cure of the discare, which is go simplified that

THE SHIP, '-3,:.
“OW! Low Tlove to sce a gallant shlpg"
Stem the bold current, and ropel the wiipe,
ARCHEL Hor Wick L Fr,
In the month of Avgust, 1748, about 1!
hour of twelve, a gallint ship was scen 1
| double that celebrated reef of rocks, known {c
| mariners, by the appellation of ¢ Prenton's
‘ Recf" and as she ginled over the foaming wa
f ters, a thousand conjectures v ere indalged in,
[ by thosc who beheld Ler, nd some anxiety
| Wus expres.od by cach, and 411, for her safe.
( ty.
, Although A tremendous gale had blown for
the last soven days, she approaclied the coasi
i with single recfed topsails;—her courges were
| not hauled up, and she geemed not to labour
| under the oppressive canvass which was heap
~ed upon ker in a *“storm so rude,” Tie Is
landers gazed upon her with intense interest,
and equal admiration, and if for the moment,
they indulged some feuars for the safety of the
companions of the bacge, they dwelt with ad
miration, upon the unusual nautieal «%ill which
was displayed by the Captain of the ship, and
his mariner., Contrary to established custom,
sle waved not at the main-top-gallant mast,
the flag of any nation, and displayed no insig
nta to denote the nation fiom which she came,
or the gervice in which she was craploved.
As she ranged around the shore cdineen

busy b of nusie, tlu-_;.xrring: of the timbrel,
the coft and mollow notes of the flute, the shrill
straing of the fife, and the werry shrichs of the
violin, were heard, as the ship eiided along the
courty whilst the may throng that inhabited
her, indulze ! in theis gportive tricks, and gave
way to the hnpnlses o ha ppiness——nleasure,and

appeared under all eail ~-topsuils, top-g:llant
sails, royals and steering =ails; and the activi
ty with which all were mancuvred, won tie ad
miration of the pectators; and many liardy
tars, who had traversed the ocean, and scen
ships of all nations, had assembled, and each
andall, swore by the god of the =cas, that a

in no small Jdegree, by the singularity of the

one of the companions of Kidd and Logan,
they refrained from doing so fur some days,
and were con‘ent with watching the singular

their curiosity was not be restrained; and at
length, an old inhabitant, fur more hardy thun

the halit ofhcing frighttened by trifles, resolved
to board her; and ¢ come what nav,” said he,
“ T will know something of ' b tory of the

and sturdy hearte of oak, who had jong breast.

when an officer appeared at the gnawale, and
in a deafening voice, excluined, * stand back,
or by St. Paul, I'll make a corpee of hiry who
dare cross the gunwale of this gallant ship;
cand know, ye impudent intruders, that this
barge is not to be contammated by the foot
steps of colonial plebians! Stand back, I <y,
or by St. John, I make a ghost of him that op
posce!”® There was a sternnoes in the wanner
of the oflicer, which did not exaetly snit the
taste of the commander of the mtruding boat,
and no longer retaining his wonted firnne: s,
lic answered, ** I come in the name of the le
gal agent of his Britannic M, ty, to inquire
the name of this vessel, lier place of destina
tion, and to ascertain all those circumstances,
which are ro essential to the precervation of
his Majosty’s customs.”
“OC his Majesty==of the Monarch of whom
you gpoak,” responded the officer, 1 kuow
nothing-<1 care less p—but hiar'ee, I, as the
commander of this ehip, st his Majosty ang
bis mavepidons at defiance: and he lhall vet
find, that tlus gallant barque trembles not o

in contempt, and whether vou willor not, w
will remain in this Luappy haven, as long as |
shall best please us to do 80, nor shall we fea

“ But,” replied the commander of the boat
“mey we not, through courtesy, as we ar
bound to do, ask from whence you came, an
welcome yon to these dark and almost deso
late shores!™
“No!" responded the oflicer indignantly

that the commander and inmates, are thei

The commander of the boat was but little
disposed to interfere with the views and wish
e of the oflicer, and pushing the pinnace from
the ade of ihe bargue,ikhe carsmen pulicd for the
shore, and glad were they to take leave of o
ship, which they had began to think was in
hiabited by a siranga race of beings, wlo, i
thel were not pirates, were devils incarnate.,
A« the pinnace moved from the chip, and
tic cificer of the deck in his coarse and grufl
voce bade them farewell, a loud and rude fit
of laughter, sounding like the voices of a
wydad of merry loids and ludies proceed
ed from tle companion-way, and floating for
amoment i the air, and ecloing over the
#tuly waters, was lost, till another was issued,
“nd flled the vacancy which the absence of
the first had occasioned. But the noise de
creaced us the barge approached the shore:
vl the hardy tars who commanded her, as
they moved along, Lore the inpress of terror
on the'r countenances, and gave evident indi
cations, that all their native superstitious fears
aore revived, by the conduct of the stranger
vessel, Their commander too, a mn, who,
for more than forty years, had Lol rted the
ccean, ond witnessed death in Lis most apal-
Linxacpeet, for once discovered a Little o n.‘."ict‘v,
cud when he onee more jumped opea e Liad,
ue was heard to mutter, cur ¢ me. o 1 ever

; tarther ivformation inrelation to that ship,
let them aot 1t themselveg—blast me, if I'm
C o to thrust my no<e aga'n, into the pres
cnce of aship load of devils and hob-goblins,”
The old gentleman and his associates,
or rather oarsmen, the moment they had
reached the shore, were surrounded by the
eager islanders, anxious to know something of
the stranger ship; bot whilst the tars observed
a profound silence, and by their looks, con
vineed al!, that all was not well, the Captain
filled the ears of the multitude with a lost
of conjectures; and whilst Le uttered his
Goleful predictions, presented (o their eyes,
the uast herrible deeds of piracy and atroc
ity, ol gave them to understmnd, that he
looked apon ths ship in no other light than
that of'a pirate ship, manned bv monster: , and
demons, from the rersions of Pluto. “Although
I saw but one of the infernal erew,” said he,
*Twaes perfectly satisfed s to the obicets and
| pursite of the whole, for he was a man to my
ere, who has from Liis infiney up, practised
' H.n: most odious deeds of atrocity and feasted
upon blood. Bat the ship is a ship, shie has
come inte port and here T-uppose she will stay
as Jong as she pleases; but may good leaven
deliver us from her presence, and that too very
speedily ™’
There was a kind of abject langor in the
manner of the Captain, which sufliciently in
formed the spectators, that ing felt @ suporsti
tous awe, in relation to the atlair, when one
of the group, more bold and resolute than the
rest, proposed that immediate mceasures Lo
taiien to compel the stranger to leave the har.
hor. ¢ Compel her; compel her indeed,” re
-2 plied the Captain, ““you might as well attempt

we lLave to do with Ler, the better will it Le
for our comfort and mutual happiness!

an appeal to the public, in relation to the af
