A Methodist Slaveholder in
Brooklyn N. Y. ! Mr. Editor, I
suppose, not one in a thou -and ol your rea
ders, can be aware as to the xtent to which
slavery prevails even in the so called free
state of New-York.
Within the last four weeks, I have seen
not less than eleven different persons who
have recently been brought from the
South, and who are now held as slaves by
their masters in this state ; as you know
that when the slave has been here nine
months, the master has only to take him
out of the state, and then return with him
immediately, and have him registered
again, and so he may hold on to the slave,
as long as he lives ! Some of the slaves
whom I have recently seen are employed
by their masters, some are loaned, and
others hired out; and each of the holders
of these slaves whom I have seen are
professors of religion ! ! One of these
professors is Mr. David Stanford, of
Brooklyn; he is a member, 1 am told, of
the Methodist Episcopal Church!
NevYork, Avg.7, 1837.
The following from the Friday, (Han
cock Co., Ohio) Courier, of August 3d,
is certainly he most remarkable phenom
enon we remember ever having heard
of. The country for miles round, presents
nearly a dead level.
Strange Phenomenon. On Satur
day the 29th ult. Mr. Richard Wade, Jr.
was engaged in digging a well on his
premises, about 4 miles south of Findlay ;
after having dug down something like 18
feet, the appearance of water was evident.
Mr. Wade being1 anxious to obtain water,
seized a crobar, which was standing neai,
and made several strokes near the centre
of the well whereupon ihe water gushed
forth in vivid torrents. Had not Mr.
Wade been extremely active in attempt
ing to escape, he would have perished al
At the time of the water gushing forth,
a continued roaring ensued similar to a
loud clap of thunder, which shook the
earth violently for several hours. By an
application of a firebrand to the water, it
took fire and burnt like alcohol ; the blaze
struck five feet above the surface of the
well, aud at the same time burniajr the
puncheons that lay on the top of the well.
The water still continues to boil.
Reprehensible. lhe practice ol
procuring beautiful females to attend
stores, for the purpose of attracting custom,
is getting very prevalent in this city.
It. should be scouted by every high-minded
father, virtuous wife and daughter.
N. Y. Times.
We go with you, Mr. Times only at
the other end of the stick. In our view of
the case, it is right and desirable that
young women be employed to attend be
hind counters whether beautiful or not
is a matter of taste instead of great hulk
ing young ellows, who would be much
more in plac hoeing; and digging, on
their fathers' farms. A young man ought
to be ashamed of being seen behind the
counter of a retail dry-good shop, except
as owner; all the hired assistants, even to
the book-keeper, should bo women. N.

The largest Snake yet-As Mr
Eliakirrr' Thomas was returning on Satur
day week, ttfrom;n excursion on the
Calskill Mountain! he heard a ireat rust-
I - t o i
ling among the leaves near1 by, and pre-
sently the startling sound of the rattles,
apparently of an enormous snake. He
stood momentarily upon his guard; and
it was well he did so. for on lnnLino-
about him, he presently discovered the
appalling sight of a rattle snake, with his
head at least four feet from the ground,
his body coil above coil, his eves flashing
fire, his skin every minute chan?inff color.

very act of springing upon his intended
victim. Sucn a sight would have stiick-
en terror into the soul of almost any other
man, except Mr. Thomas, who is an o d
hunter, and had seen rattle snakes hpfor
and as this animal always gives timely
warning betore it strikes, so Mr. Thomas
did not, in the present instance, for a
moment lose his presence of mind.
But not to trust himself too near his
honorable but dangerous enemy, he kept
at a prudent distance; and elevating his
rifle, which, fortunately he had with him,
he let fly a charge into the mouth of the
snake, which passing through his brain
out at the back of his head, killed him
dead on the spot. Then taking ajiooked
stick, which he had prepared for the pur
pose, he fastened it in the very orifice he
had just made in Mr. Snake's skull, and
thus conveniently, but not without a good
deal of hard toil, dragged him to the vil
lage of Catskill. There procuring a two
foot rule of a carpenter, he proceeded to
the measurment of his slain adversary;
and found his dimensions to be as follows:
Length, 11 feet 9 inches, circumference
in the largest part, 12 inches; ditto, round
the head, 6 inches ; ditto, round the first
rattle, 3 inches; ditto, round the last, 2
inches; length of the whole series of rat
tles, 3 feet 8 inches; number of rattles,
83; length of the two poisonous fangs, 2
inches. His weight was found to be
within one ounce of 27 pounds. And on
trying out his oil, after being duly divest
ed of his skin, there was found to be near
ly five quarts. The skin has been stuff
ed. This immense snake is believed to
have been the largest of his species of
which we have any record. Calskill Obs.
Vermont against the World.
Our readers are probably aware of the
late invention by Mr. Davenport of this
State, of the Electro Magnetic Power,
which, it is confidently believed, will su
percede the use of steam or water power.
We had the pleasure on Thursday last, of
examining a new invention or rather im
provement in Locomotive Engine wheels,
by our worthy and persevering fellow
citizen, MY. Elisha Town, which bids fair
to hold a rivalship with that of Mr. Dav
enport. By this improvement, planes with
an inclination of from 500 to 1000 feet to
the mile are overcome by locomotives
with equal ease and facility, and on the
most simple plan. The nature of this in
vention consists in attaching a wheel of
proper dimensions, with a groove in its
vim, similar to the wheels used to propel
machinery by round bands, to the inside
of such of the wheels of the Locomotive
that run on the raiis on the level road, as
the power of the engine is applied to, in
propelling the engine car. At the com
mencement of the inclined plain, the ordi
nary rail stops, and another, of the same
shape starts, but laid within the other, to
correspond with the grooved wheels; and
as the grooved wheels come on to this,
they raise the other wheels from the ordin
ary rail, and the groove by embracing
both sides of the roll, produces sufficient
friction to enable the Locomotive to pro
pel itself and a train of cars up the inclined
plane. Mr. Town has taken out a patent
for his invention, and a course of opera
tions will immediately be undertaken to
test the principle upon a scale commen
surate with the importance of the subject.
We witnessed an experiment with a
model, and, so far as we are able to judge,
the operation of the invention will be suc
cessful and complete, Vt. Watchman.

of the embarrassments under which the
people of that country are laboring, from
the depressed state of commerce and credit,
and the scarcity and dearness of the means

to the financial difficulties in foreign

We trust that our countrymen will at
length shame the white Americans out of
their absurd and unchristian prejudice
against their el low men, simply on ac
count of the darker hue of their integu
ments.? Dr. Smith, the medical gentle
man of color, who, after having spent five
years in Glasgow, pursuing the study of
medicine, and having graduated in that
University, nevertheless, because of his
color, was refused a passage in an Amer
ican ship, from the Broomielaw, has been
entertained by the citizens of Glasgow at
a public diorver. We join the Scottish
Pilot, in applauding this well-merited re
buke; but we differ from our respected
contemporary when he calls upon "Eng
lishmen" to enforce the policy of Ameri
can exclusiveness, and banish from their
hospitalities the aristocrats of the skin "
This would but strengthen their unhappy
prejudices, besides being objectionable as
a measure of retaliation. We had better
trust to the jsilent but sure influence of
good example, embracing- every fit oppor
tunity of deprecating such odious distinc
tions. Slave Trade. We have been in
formed that Pedro Blancho, alone, has
exported from the Gallenas 1800 slaves,
during the last six months! ! and that he
has recently received advice from the Ha
vanna of the safe arrival of one of his
brigs, the cargo ot which sold for $250,
000!!! There are two factories in the
Gallenas, and are supposed to be about
equal in exports. This gives then an ex
port of 3,603 slaves in six months, or
7,200 in twelve, and that from a point at
which, it has generally been supposed, the
trade was nearly extinct!! Enormous
number!!! equal, if not exceeding, the
whole number of emigrants sent out by
the American Colonization Society, since
the commencement of their operations.
Where are the friends of humanity ? Can
they continue to slumber over such accu
mulated human sufferings, or at most
only hold out the nerveless, trembling
hand of irresolution and indifference? Is
it to be recorded for the contempt of future
ages, that amid all the boasted liberality,
philanthropy, and religion of the nine
teenth century, that ONE MAN mana
cled more victims, than a whole nation
liberated ? Te.ll it not in Gath ; let it for
ever remain an unrevealed secret, that
ivhile the press groans and the world
teems, with tomes on philanthropy and
love; while millions are kneeling at the
shrine of liberty and vowing eternal fidel
ity to the goddess, one-fourth of the earth
is smoking with the blood of the oppress
ed, and groaning under the scourge of
oppression, cruelty and outrage. Libetia

chased a farm in Utica consisting of 125
acres, at an expense to the State of $10,
000, which sum has been paid from the

not a little remarkable, that among the
parties to the. quadruple alliance there
should be no less than three female sover
