Be this as it maft one waf .or theTother,
it is my aim to make the Telegraph as efli
, cient as possible in adrancioj truth and
holiuess in the earth. I do not expect to
escape censure. If I obtain the approbation

smiles of ray Hearen ly father, I shall be

, THE; DUEL' CASE.
1 ' ,Tne.frllo;ving, from an exchange paper
! gives some, pirticulars of a murderous
due!, in New Orleans. What must be'the

with bursts of, applause. We bless God
that such'.ccnes yre not often witnessed in

tions of their papers blank? as hinted bv
him, the Editors alludedto will fill the Space
with good Anti-Slavery or Temperance
matter, they will very much improve their
papers and benefit their readers.
A LETTEtt to the; Editors of . certain
country Newspapers. Gentlemen,
Please to excuse any
seeming renection
on you, which may be contained in our
proposal for improving those papers,
which occupy your daily labors. "Much
of your first page is usually filled with the
same kind of matter that fills the novels,
that are so justly condemned by all per
sons of intelligence and. character, as only
calculated to weaken the ; minds and cor
rupt the morals, of society. Those old,
authenticated stories are made of the same
moon-shine that our talented novel writ
ers, like so many mountains in labor, are
olten bringing ioi th. . Whether seculaf
or religious, they are" mere sfbries or
cnieny so, as mucn as tnose ot Jack ihe
giant killer ; and tend to banish all moral
regard'for truth, as well as love of. solid
learning, out of the "world. ' These you
publish, we suppose, to secure the patron
age of the uneducated"; but let us suggest
to you, that you are mistaken in your cal
culations ; for you are in this , thing a
quarter or half century behind the im
provements of the age. Time was when
farmers and others used to spend more brl
less of their winter evenings in telling
and hearing old and strange stories over
a mug of cider; but, by the increase of
.... i . . ..i i
science ana temperance, mat .time nas
gone by. ' Most of those, who read your
papers at all, of more than the foreign and
domestic news, want something substan
tial and worth reading. What you fill up
from nnrpls or similar snurri's. thiv would I
prefer to 'have you leave blank, which
would save the time spent in examining
it, and keep t hem from an. evil Jon dep-
recated, being ' filled with the east wind,
And at were now taking the liberty to
counsel you, please also - to shut out of
vour pies those low puns and bit's of
boys' wit, which offend serious minds, and
make people of sense think strange of your
judgment in selecting them. ; Occasional
. . ....J .. - - .
strokes of real, pure wit are not objected
to here. . Editors should keep up with or
go before the common people, in the im-
provements- of the times, in whicn case
.... .... . . ...
they will bo uselul and rrspected. liat,
when seen publishing lalse, protane, cor
rupt, ot silly things, and so catering for
. -' k- '- mm
the vitiated taste of the lowest class in so
ciety, and this merely to fill their own
pockets, it is a hard task for our candor
and charity to call them respectable,'
Now, gentlemen, these things are all said
in ''friendship to yoi, and through you to
the public, however harsh they may sound
in the ears of those to whom they apply,

More about tlie Breweries. Tv-
E. C. Delavan has addressed the fol
lowing letter to the Editor of the New
York American : '
Ballslon Centre, July 18, 1840.
Dear Sir: h has '"been Suggested by
many, that the-Brewers could have re"
moved much of. the odium attached to the
i use of impure water in malting, by estab
lishing the fact that during the process of
iermentation, all or nearly all the impuri
ties would work off There is but iittle
doubt that much of the vegetable impuri-'
ties would be thus discharged; while much
of the animal would remain. But, Mr.
Editor, what do you think becomes ofthis
double refined and most nauseous, sub
stance, which, in the natural process - of
fermentation, finds its way out of the bunT-
hole ot the beer barrel ? Why, sir, I am
info.rmvd it finds its way into a vat, pre
pared for the purpose, from whence it is.
taken and sold to private families and bak
ers, TO MAKE .OUR BREAD.
So that we have, through this abomina
ble trade
1. The destruction of a ,valuablegrain
to produce a most sjupifying liquor, con
taining in addition to the alcohol and hops,
often times the moat deleterious drugs, as
Well as the most filthy water
2. The slops or grains, or the dreffsof
the barley, are sold to the milk-men arid
families as food for cows, by which the
quantity of milk is greatly increase, but
engendering disease, in the animal, and
producing milk deeply injurious to the
health of all who partake of it. ,
3. The yeast .resulting from one stage
of th is vile business,- containing the very
condensation of abominations, is collected,
preservedand sold as one of the ingredi
ents necessary to make our bread ! !
. All that has been said and published for.
the last ten years relative to thehorrid
adulterations, and manufacture of a sub
stance called wine, and which unhappily
is still quaffed in large quantities, . espe
cially in cities, by young and old, male
and female, is true, and never has been in
a single instance denied. ; indeed, not one
half of the iniquities of this traffic have
been revealed to tbe public, v; -;
Not long since, one of these "wine fab
ricators being on his death bsd, was visit
ed by his clergyman, and when particu?
larly inquired whether the statements
which had been published relative to the
adulteration and use of poisonous drugs
in the manufacture of fictitious wine were
true;, replied :
'::t Yes, they are all Irue, 1 assure you
they are all true, and the remembrance of
the practices I ham been guilty of in my
rown cellar and lo in preparing fhese li
quors for the public, now bear heavy up
on my soul.' fc.
This fact was communicated to me by
the clergyman who attended on the death
bed. of the wretched man.

Edward C. Delavax.

From a Third Edition of the Morning Post, Aug. 6,
' Attempted Insurrection in France
We have just received by a snecia
courier tne lollowing rmporuant intelli
gence of an event which appears to have
taken place late last-night in France : -
oouloone, Thursday morning,
s, : Aug. G seven oVlpck;
Last night a steamer arrived ofT Iiou
logne, and' landed - within three mi!es of
here about one hundred men, generals and
colorfels,'y dressed Iin; uniform. Some of
them went, to the' barracks, r.nd cried
Vive. : Louis . Napoleon,' and ; distributed
money among the mob. .This morning
one of " the generals -and a colonel, dressed
in grands uniform,-Were" arrested. On
board the steamer there arc Jsome horses.
It is reported that Louis Napoleon also
landed. All is quiet at present ; all the
military -under arms. The drums' are
beatento call out the'National Guards.
No more of the insurgents ha-ve been ar
rested. . ' . !
BOULOGNE-SUR-MER, Aug. G.
Thi3 morning oae of those mad at
tempts at revolution which have charac
terised the French since the days of the
first and of the memorable July,disturb
ed the inhabitants of this peaceful town
from its slumbers. The facts, cs I have
collected them, are as follows :
The? city of Edinburg steamer, belong
ing to the Commercial Steam Navigation
Company, vas hired by Prince Louis Na
poleon, ostensibly for an excursion of
pleasure along the British coast, for four
teen days. In this he embarked with fifty-six
followers, eight horses, and two
carriages, in the Thames, on Wednesday
last ? this morning, about 2 o'clock, they
reached the coast of France, off Wimi
roux, about 3 miles from Boulogne.
The surprise of captain and crew may
be imagined lid see the whole of his pass
engers come on deck, not in the peaceful
garb of citizens, but eh militaire, some as
lancers, some as general officers, some as
.private soldiers,-with an oil-skin covering
on their hats, with tho number 40 painted
in front, that being the regiment which at
Straaburg had formerly identified itself so
seriously in the cause of Louis Napoleon.
Their object was soon made evident.
The ship's boat, w?s lowered, and the
whole company landed in three trips. -Before
the prince left the vessel, he ordered
the captain to cruise off the coast, but to
keep close in to Boulogne, and have a
boat ready manned to come off for them
should they signalize to that effect- A
mong those landed I have been able to
jcollect ths names of the General Mont
holau, Colonel Parquin, and Colonel De
laborde. .
When all had landed they marched in
to the town, by tho Place Navarin, Rue
des Carreux, Rue Simoneau, into the
Rrand Rue, shouting 'Vive l'Empere
ur,' the prince carrying his hat on the
point of his srord, and waving it in the
air. From the Grande Rue they made
their way by the Itue de la Lampe to the
Caserne, and roused the small body of
troops "of the line .(I believe only one
company) that perform duty here. The
soldiers awakened, and seeing themselves
surrounded by general officers, knew not
what to rnake of the scene. They were,
however, soon made to comprehend that a
revolution was on foot, that Louis Philip
pe was dethroned, that all France was
roused Tin favor of their emperor, Louis
Napoleon, and that they must arm to
inarch forthwith upon Paris.
As some were preparing to obey, their
captain who had been awakened by the

noise, rusnea in among tnem, ana restored-their
wavering loyalty by shouting

quitted the Caserne, and retired to the
port. .
By thistime the tpwn was roused, the
authorities were on foot, the drums were
heating to arras, and the National Guards
decree, had
been lavishingly distr,buted
along every
street through
which
they
passed, and money given to those w

directions were given by thevSeus Prefet
to "attack tho-.-distur.bers of the peace.
Within two hours the greater part were
either prisoners in the citadel, shot, or dis
persed. They made no stand after leav

four, others swam for the steamer, and had
a narrow escape of being drowned.
