History ok Vermont, Natural, Civil and Statistical.
In three parts, wi.h a new Map of the Slate and 200
Engraving*. By Zaoock Thompson. Burlington;
Published tor the Author by Cbauccey Goodrich.
For somo years past a persevering eflbrt has
been made by s>ome of the roost enlrghtened citi?
zens of Vermont to induce the Legislature to in?
stitute a Geological Survey of the State and a gen?
eral investigation of its natural wealth and his?
tory, ft ha8 been sustained by the soundest ar?
guments and the strongest appeals to the pecunia?
ry interests, the State pride, and the intelligence
uf ihe Legislature. For a long time it failed to
excite attention; then a few of the boldest looked
favorably toward it, and at the present Seasien a
bill authorising the Survey passed the Senate by a
large majority and with little opposition, but only
to be rejected by the Hoase with an equal una?
nimity and as little debate. In the mean time,
Mr. Thompson, an humble citizen, with no wealth,
uoassistance, no encouragement even, has single
handed, by assiduous, enthusiastic and most hon?
orable exertion, produced a work which puts to
sbtme this niggard illiberality of the Legislature
though it leaves the student far le?3 reason, than
he would otherwise have, to deplore its pertina?
cious manifestation. While more than half the
States of the Union have instituted Surveys, to
develope their riches and aid the cause of Natu?
ral Science, Vermont, which should stand fore?
most among them all in every noble work suited
to her character and position, contents herself
with raisir.^ sheep?careless of the mineral wealth
which may lio within her mountains, of the facili?
ties and means for all high culture which she pos?
sesses and of the intellectual power which slum
[ bers among her hills and which only awaits her
I consent and her aid to make her first among her
; sister States?primus inter pares?in the best
\ and truest elements of all social well-being. It
\ U well that her aims are not all like her; and the
j sharpest rebuke she can receive at their hands,
1 though the one lea3t likely to be appreciated and
j felt, comes from the works of utility and worth
J which in spite of her frowns they now and then
? produce.
The work before us is by far the fullest und
;| most -fitisfactory History that we have ever seen
I of any State. Every page exhibits the marks of
I the closest, most untiring industry and of a pecu
$ liar fitness in the Author for the arduous task he has
c lodcrtaken and so well discharged. It is a large
I octavo, printed on small type and with double
columns and is divided into three parts.
? The first comprises the Natural History of
Vermont, embracing first a minute descriptive and
physical geography of the State?with full tables
illustrating; its climute and metereology; and then
a complete history of its Animal and Botanical
pTOv\uctioni. Forty-five quadrupeds are catalogued
ai beding to the State, including Bears, Cata
mounts, Wolves, Beavers, Moose and Deer?each
individual being minutely described and repre
j sented by engravings. In the same way one hun
| dred and forty birds are shown to belong to the
-I State and thirty-two reptiles?of which each is
j sietelied and minutely described. There are for
j ivfishes found within the State. The invertebral
* animals are also fully treated. Then follows the
? Botany ef Vermont?a scientific tieatise of some
r.fty pages?prepared with care und great accuracy
and presenting more fully by far than it has ever
b*n dune before h descriptive catalogue of the
Plants of Vermont?thirty-four of which are found
in no other Stale. This portion of the work, more
than any other, is the result of close personal ex?
ploration ; und the catalogue presented is without
doubt much more complete than has been pub
r* lisbed of any other State. For every botanist in
} the UaioM it tjiumI possess the highest value. The
1 geological and mineralogical description of the
I State is brief?but the author says enough is pre
I Mnted to show that " the State ranks among the
I best in the Union in mineral resources."
1 U. Tho second part presents a full and well
| ?ritten Civil and Political History of Vermont?
I detailing; her progress from her first settlement
I through the Revolution and her stormy contest
$ *'ila New-York down to the present time. Many
interesting anecdotes ate recorded illustrating the
diameter of her inhabitants and partaking strong
of tho romantic character by which her early
&tory is marked. A full exposition of her Political
Ablutions is given, with a detailed statement of the
"sober and character of her Colleges and higher
Seminaries, of her various religious Societies and
I full explanation of the state of society and sta
| ktical accounts of agriculture, manufactures,
'j Amerce, benevolent institutions, &o. tfce. within
^ bounds cf the State. This portion of the
*otkis highly interesting and valuable.
] Ml. The third part is strictly a Gaseteer ?f|
^rmoot?giviiig u topographical and historical
^ription of all the counties, towns, rivers, moun
""k &c. of the State?prepared with great care
^ presetting the most complete and perfect
j| Gfceteer we j)ave ever seen
I Joe hook is a noble monument of the Author's
* "ffepid industry and a most valuable contribution
I ,0 Literary wealth of the Stato. It is badly
I Pruned, and published in a .-ivle ijuite unworthy
9 ^ intrinsic merits ; this we tiust may ho remedied
j l= a second edition. To the people of Vermont it
he an invaluable work; while those in other
I vtati* who wish a full and perfect account of her

g any work of the kind that has ever been publish
', ^- We trust it may meat with a favor in some
I degree at least commensurate with its worth.

RfaaNochaseua Election.
Correspondence of The Nea-i"ork Tribune.
Boston, Nov. 15,1&A2.
The news I am compelled to send you of oor
Election yesterday, though better than that which
we received from you a week ago, is nevertheless
rather discouraging. The day was an uncomforta?
ble one, and many staid from the polls who. if they
had gone, (aB they doubtless would if they had
thought the Whig ascendancy in danger,) would
have cast their votes for the Whig ticket.
The Editors of the Atlas, by means of Expresses,
arranged at great expense, procured returns from
250 towns, which were published in that paper
this morning, showing the following result in the
vote for Governor: Davis.48,128
Scattering. 5,422
The Abolition vote, having greatly increased
since last year, will be sufficient, beyond doubt, to
defeat the election of Governor by the people.
Morton will probably lead Davis by a small plu?
rality, hut there is reason to believe that the Whigs
will have a majority in the House, and that, by
this means. Davis will be re-elected, and the Whig
ascendancy preserved. It appears by the returr.s
in the Atlas, that, as far as heard from, the House
stands as follows: Whigs 93, Locos 08; Whig
majority 25. This includes, of course, the large
Whig representation of Boston ; and though it is
possible the returns yet to come in will change this
majority, it is confidently believed that they will
The Whigs have elected 5 Senators in Suffolk, il
in Franklin and 2 in Hnmpshire?in all, The
Locos have elected (probably) 0 in Middlesex, 3
in Norfolk, 3 in Bristol and 3 in Hampden?in nil.
14. There is no election (probably) in Plymouth,
Essex and Worcester. From Berkshire, Nan
tucket and Barnstable there are no returns. The
complexion of the Senate will therefore depend
upon the House, whose duty it will be to till ah
vacancies. If the House is Whig, the Semite will
b?. so ; and if the House should prove Loco, all is
Three members of Congress are elected; 2
Whigs, Winthrop and Adams, and Williams, Loco.
Parmentcr is defeated. In Cushing's, Hudson's,
Saltonstall's and Baker's Districts, there is no
choice, owing to the Abolition vote. The Hamp?
shire, Berkshire and Barnstable Districts not yei
heard from; but it is probable that in these also
! there is no choice. Jackson is no doubt elected in
1 the old Norfolk District.
This is rather a gloomy tale, but figures are oh
stinate, and cannot be changed after election as
they can before. The Whigs have fought at great
disadvantage; and if, after the bad example set
them by their brethren in Ohio aud New-York,
their unfortun?te supineness and discouragement
have given the enemy a partial triumph, they are
at least entitled to sympathy and commiseration.
Perhaps the State is saved, but there is reason to
fear a contrary result. Yours, Hancock.
For The Tribune.
Animal Masrn<*ti?m.
Mesmerism, as it is of late called, from its sup?
posed founder, in 1770, is now found to be ol
much earlier origin. By a manuscript, lately found
in an ancient library at Ofen, in Hungary, it is
proved to have been taught by one Rhodolphus, in
1240. His views are somewhat interesting at the
present time He taught his pupils that then
wa9 a pervading fluid in the atmosphere, of such
subtle properties as to elude all our external senses
and means of determining its character, which, he
held, was the medium of communication between
all animal matter in its original state: that the
human brain was so constructed that, undercertain
organizations, it was capable of influencing another
btain of like organization, und of quieting the ex?
ternal senses, and thereby holding it at will foi
any definite period ; and by the sole effort of his
bi-ain he could produce u sufficient vibration on ?
this subtle medium, to communicate his wishes to
the person so held, und obtain a response equally
accurate with the effect of voice under other cir?
cumstances; and this, too, at a considerable dis?
tance from the person acted upon. Rhodolphus
died, before his theory had obtainedjrauch celeb
ritv, and with him slept the science until Mesnser
either renewed it, with many alterations to npe
originality, or originated one on nearly the same
Rhodolphus appears to have had :t vague idea
of the Phrenological arrangements of the organ?
of the brain, for he was able to excite the various
passions und faculties of the mind by reference to
different parts of the brain; and he showed that
when the mind was trained to a certain action for
a long time, in opposition to the position intended
to be proved, and then subjected to experiment*,
the result was satisfactorily the sumo in every case.
But for his early death the Science of Phrenolo?
gy and nervous communication would have been
established at that early period, and have taken
it* stand among the recognized sciences of the
day, and probably on a much in ore perfect founda?
tion than ut present. He proved, by experiment,
that a person would, without the lea.-?t knowledge
on the subject, point out the location^of the parts
of the brain which were brought into action tp
produc? certain external results?as music, vene?
ration, hope, combatting, &.c. &.c. corresponding
nearly with the location by ?jur modem Phrenolo?
gists. G.
McDonald Clarke.?The remains of this un?
fortunate man, who died in utter poverty some
months since, were removed, as we learn from the
Commercial, last week from their first resting
place and deposited on a knoll near the Strunget's
Vault in Greenwood Cemetery. A neat monu?
ment has been erected over them, consisting of a
single square block, resting upon a slab supporting
a pyramid?the whole of white marble resting
upon a block of granite. The monument is in ex?
cellent taste and has suitable inscriptions upon
each of its sides. _

Protection in the West.
The following extract from a private letter to tie
Editor of the Frankfori (Ky.) Commentator speaks
the sentiment of men of all parties in the West.
There as here, many rote for certain candidates
because they are called 'Democrats' who think
undoubtingly that the policy and measures of the
Whig! on those great practica] questions of public
policy which divide the Country are right. This
discrepancy will not long continue under Loco-Fcco
legislation. The writer says :
" I regret that it was nut in my power to attend
your great Barbecue. Circumstances existed which
imperiously required that I ?feould be at home when
it occurred. I res ret the more that I was compelled
to be absent, because I learn that very few of the
citizens of Mason were there. You must ascribe
this tn any other cause than a want of zeal in be?
half of the good cause, or of friendship to Mr. Clay.
I assure you that the feeling here is of the right
kind, in both resperts. I had a conversation, not
long sine?', with an influential Democrat of our
County, (who is friend!;, to a Protective Tariff.)
who declared that he meant to go for Mr. Clay,
because he believed Iiis election alone would give
stability und permanence to the Tariff lately en?
acted. There can be no doubt of the correctness
of this sentiment ; and as a large majority of the
Democratic party in this County, and perhaps
throughout the State, arc friendly to a Protective
Tariff, I believe that very many of that party will
ba convinced, before the election comes on, that
the election of Mr. Cloy alone will restore the
now depressed condition of the Agricultural in?
terest iif the Country. The present ruinous prices
of nil Agricultural products, not only affects, in a
most deplorable manner) that greatest interest of
the Country, hot all other interests, because these
interests are dependent upon the agriculturists for
their very existence. Jf, for instance, the Farmers
are in a prosperous condition, they are enabled to
purchase freely the piodurts of the Manufacturers,
Mechanics, &c. and the ?Oods of the Merchant
They can also furnish to Commerce and Naviga?
tion the means of a brisk and active employment.
But when Agricultural products are so low that
they will not. bear transporation to a marker,
Farmers will be compelled to resort to household
manufactures of common wear, and live chiefly
upon their own mean-, incuiring us few expendi?
tures as possible. This must necessarily most se?
riously affect our Mechanics, Manufacturers, Mer?
chants, Sec.
" To give prosperity to agriculture, three things
are necessary. First, a Home Market for our
surplus products, which ennnot be affected by the
regulations of foreign nations. Secondly, a Na?
tional Currency, of equal value, throughout the
Union, which will greatly tend to facilitate exchan?
ges, and promote a brisk and active demand for
all agricultural products, thii3 affording to the
farmer :i fair remuneration for his agricultural la?
bors. Thirdly; the greatest possible facilities for
a cheap and rapid transportation of agricultural
products to the places where they are required for
consumption, thus taking a little us possible from
the profit's of the farmer to pay the cost of trans?
portation. It would seem to me, that if the farm?
ers were to look at these mailers in thsir proper
point of view, they would nil be in favor of
measures so obviously calculated to promote, not
only their own interest, but the interests of all the
oilier classes of the community. As the farming
interest constitute* more than three-fourths of our
whole population, how ii it that they have so long
neglected to look to their own interests, when they
are railed upon to exercise the elective franchise ?
It is because they have suffered themselves to be?
come too much of partizans, und have looked
moi-_* to the interests of their party than the gene?
ral good. It i? time this state of things should
cease, and I am glad to find that, at least, some of
the Democratic party are determined to throv^olf
the shackles of parly, and ti" for their own inte?
rests and the interests oi the country, at the com?
ing Presidential election."
Mestic Peace.--?In the year UJ4-, a number ot
individuals were arrested for keeping a gambling
house on Chestnut-street,near Independence Hall.
The counsel for the prosecution was sitting in his
otlire one day. when a young man of genteel exte?
rior and good address entered, and the following
dialogue ensued.
4 I have boen summoned to appear to-morrow
as a witness against-. for keeping a gambling
house. Unless it is absolutely necessary." said he,
as his agitation increased, " 1 wish, sir, you would
not urge my attendance."
" I do n't know," rs it it I the counsel, " that the
conviction will depend upon your testimony, but
as you are an important witness, it may be neces?
sary to bring you upon the stand."
" My reasons for asking this favor are urgent,"
said he, "and'the consequence of a refusal may
be fatal to my prosperity and the happiness of
others." lb- became more agitated, and ot the
request of the gentleman he continued. " In a
few days I am to be married to Mr.-'s daugh?
ter, residing at Cheetnut-street: The pieparations
are made and the <lay is fixed. If I um cnlled
upon as u witness in this .-ase I shall criminate
myself, and be exposed to the even of my friends,
and the public gaze, as a gambler! My character
will be lost, my prospects in life blighted, and, of
courts my domestic happiness destroyed."
?? You shall not be called, young man," said the
Counsel, ??unless it is absolutely necessary," and
with this assurance they separated, Hot without
some painful misgivings on die part of the legal
gentleman, that he was about lobe accessary to a
wrong, which might re.?ult in the utter ruin of a
confiding yet unsuspecting girl. The trial came
on, but conviction wns obtained without summon?
ing the young man, and he went on his course of
duplicity and crime unexposed. In a few days he
wa* married !
Two years passed, and a young but heart-broken
wife appears before the legal tribunal, seeking
a divorce! Her counsel was startled when the
husband came forward; at discovering, confronting
the wife, the identical young man who plead not
to be exposed as a gambler ' The interview with
the witness instantly occurred to the counsel's
mind. The painful incidents of a deserted house,
neglected wife, and the cruelties which had fol?
lowed his gambling habits, then came up in fearful
arrav before the individual who saved him from
his merited exposure.
The trial proceeded, and a gradual succession
of acts of injustice, neglect, coldness, alienation,
domestic discord and cruelties on the pait of the
ha-band against a confiding and affectionate vourg
wife were disclosed, which melted the heart of the
coldest spectator. His defence was feeble, and
her cause triumphed. Happily she was liberated
from the monster that had wounded her heart, de?
stroyed her peace, and deprived her of that happi?
ness which beamed upon her so joyously during
the morning of her bridal day.
Hi- fete hardly needs even briefly to be told. He
soon lost the esteem of hi? friends, if the gambler
unfriends, and hi.- credit followed hi: reputation.
His fashionable and elegant establishment ojx
Che-itrmt-street was closed by the Sheriff a f?w
weeks since, and more recently he has been ar?
rested for forgery. What a brief but melancholy
detail of the fruits reaped from the pursuit* of the
Gamester! [Philadelphia Courier.
)RNING, NOVEMBER 17. 1843.
The Publishers of The New-York Daily Tribune respect?
fully announce to their readers and the public that they
have aiade arrangements foriheopeniae wintsr as follows
At Washisrton? 1. A careful report of the daily pro?
ceedings of Congr??s will be made up expressly for The
Tribune, so as to appear ia its columns at the earliest mo?
ment. This department will be in the hands ot the ?ame
gentleman who so ably and satisfactorily filled it through
tbe last two Sessions.
2. A ge.itlemaa well informed on all Public topics and
of eminent standing In die Political circles of the Metropo?

early advices of ail Political movements in contemplation,
whether with reference to the Legislative action o? Con?
gress, the corrupt vagnrie? of Tylerism, or to the warning
intrigues and mamauvres of the partisans of die rival Loeo
Kocn aspirants to the Presidency.
At New-York?1. In addition to our usual departments
an experienced and mo?t capable Assistant Editor will at?
tend all the Lectures of the Winter which -hall possess a
general interest, to report them either in full or in substance,
a- tbeit character and worth shall seem to require. In this
department. The Tribune achieved an acknowledged su?
premacy last winter: it is our purpose to confirm it this

Markets ot our own and other Cities, taking accounts o:' Ar?
rival-, and Sales of Produce and Merchandize, with all ope?
rations in Goods, Storks, Currency, Exchanges, 4c. Sue.,
which shall be w orthy ol record. In ibis department we
endeavor to be more precise than any other paper.
3. Our Reviews and Literary Intelligence we design to
render fuller and earlier than tho se el most journals.
At Boston?We have an excel Irnl Correspondent, who
will transmit us from week to week briet summaries uf the
ablest and most striking Lectures, Discourses, ic. i.e., with
accounts of what n doing in every department of Moral
and Intellectual ?'(Fort.
At Albany.?We have yet to perfect arrangements for
early and graphic advices of the manner in which Loco
Focoism sbnll di?pense its newly acquired ',Sp?ils,' and
carry out to completion its Stop-and-Tax policy. We shall
take care to be well represented there.
At Home ami everywhere?-;though we hope for a sea?
son to have less occasion than hitherto for devoting our
columns to Political controversy?The Tribune will con?
tinue the ardent, unswerving, undaunted, determined advo
cate of Whig Principles and Measures, and of the election
of henry Clay as President in 1844. Recent events, how?
ever discouraging in the view of the short-sighted, have but
strengthened our confidence in the speedy triumph ol those
Principle s, and our conviction that IlhiNRY Clav and he
only can rally around him ike now scattered hosts ot the
victor; ot 1340, and lead them on to a new triumph, as sig?
nal, as glorious, but more enduring and beneficent.
The Trib?ne will be published Daily on a large royai
sheet atFive Dollars per annum to Mail Subscribers, in?
stead of Four as hitherto. We have found by experience
that the latter sum is not a living price for 312 newspapers,
which must be maiied (many ot them singly) as well as
printed between midnight and flay break.?The increase ot
our Mail subscriptions has been very rapid,an,t the present
iiumb-r is quite large, but not at all to our pecuniary ad?
vantage. All subscriptions received before the 1st of De?
cember, however, as well as all hitherto received, will be
served for the full term of advance payment at $4 per an?
num. (In this City the price will be 9 cents per week, mJ
for single espies two cents each, as hitherto.)
The VVrekly Tribune?just twice the size of the Daily
contains eight royal po;e-, or forty-eight double-folio col.
umns of closely printed matter, comprising all that appears
In the Daily which is sot of local or ephemeral interest,
with a larser amount of Literary matter?Tales, Poems,
Reviews, Descriptive Letters, Sec?than we can make room
for i<i the Daily. All the Reports of Lectures, abstracts ot
Congressional and Legislative Proceedings, Editorials, Fo?
reign News, itc. Itcl that appear in the Daily will be regu?
larly translerred to the Weekly, which is made up every
Thursday morning nod forwarded by the afternoon Mails
of that day, so as lo reach most of its subscribe! s by or be?
fore Saturday night.
The Weekly Tribune is afforded for $2 per annum, six
copies for $10, ten copies lor $15, and any larger number at
the rate of $1 SO euch per annum. Every practicable en?
couragement will be given to those who will aid in extend?
ing our circulation, lint all our dealings are conducted
stneily on the Cash principle, and every paper is stopped
as soon as the advance payment has run out. Poft-Masters

Read the following from .Mrs. W'm. Phillips, who has
iong resided at the FaTis. The facts are well known to all
the old residents in that part of the city.
Messrs. A. B. Sands k Co., Sirs : * Most gratefully do 1
embrace this opportunity for statin? to you me great rebel
I obtained from the use "of your Sarsaparille. I shall also
be happy, through you, to publish to all who are u?icied,
as I lately was the account nt my unexpected, and even
for a long while drspaired of cure. Mine is a painful story
and trying and sickening as is the narrative ot it, tor the
sake of many who may be so rarely relieved, I will briefly
yet accurately state it.
Nineteen years ago last April a fitol sickness left nie with
an Erysipelas eruption. Dropsical collections immediately
took place over the entire surface of my body, causing such
an enlargement that it was necessary to add" a half yard 10
the sue of my dresses apiund the waist. Next followed,
upon my limbs, ulcers psinfui beyond description. Fot
years, both in summer and winter, the only mitigation ?I
my suffering was found in pouring upon uaose parts cold
wnter. From my limbs the pain extended over,mywhole
body. There was litem'ly lor me no rest, by day or by
night. Upon lying down these pains would shoot through
my system, and compel me arise, and, for hours together,
walk the hou.-e.so that I was almost entirely deprived"!
sleep. Daring this time the Erysipelas continued active,
and the ulcers enlarged, and so de? ply have these eaten
that for two and a half years they h?ve been subject to
bleeding. During these almost twenty years 1 have con?
sulted many physicians Tbeso have called my disease
as it was attended with an obstinate cough, and a steady
and active pain in my side?a dropsical consumption ; anti
though they have been skilful practitioners, they were
only able to afford my case a partial and temporary relief
1 had many Other difficulties Uo cornelicaied to describe.
I have also used many of the medicine*!) ihat have been
recommended as infallible cures tor this disease, yel these
all failed, and I was most emphatically growing woise. In
this critical condition, given op by friends, and expecting,
for myself, relief only in death, 1 was by the timely inter
position of a kind Providence, furnished with your, to i?e,
invaluable Sarsaparilla. A singl* bottle gave me an assur?
ance of health, which tor twenty years I nad not once telt
Upon taking .the second, my enlargement diminished,
and in twtht dayt from the Sih October, when I com?
menced taking your Sarsaparilla, I was able to enjoy
sleep andrcst, by night, as refreshing as any I ever en?
joyed when in perfect health. Besides, i was, in this short
lime, relieved from aJl those excruiiatintr and unalleviateo
pains that had afflicted my days, as well as robbed me ol
my night's repose. The ulcers upon my limbs are healed,
the Erysipelas cured, and my site reduced nearly to my
former measure.
Thus much do I feel it a privilege to testily to the ttfi
cacy of your health-restoring Sarsaparilla. A thousand
thanks, sin, from one whose* comfort and whose hope oi
future health are due, under God. to your instrumentality.
And may the same Providence that directed me to your
aid, make you the happy and honored instrumenta of bless
ing others, as diseased and despatring as your much re?
lieved and very grateful triend.

New-York, Oct. 19,1812.
Messrs. Sands?Gentlemen : If you aloue were con?
cerned in the present statement, the great inducement lor
making it would be removed; Ibrot ?ourse no tesdmon>
can strengthen your own convictions in relation to the valu^
and efficiency of your Sarsaparilla, which has already
proved such a blessiug to the many hundreds who have
used it. But I have looked upon the world encircling in
its arms thousands bowed down with ruiferings suailar t>
my own, who would gladly Insten to the same source thai
restored my health, ti they were persuaded they would
meet with the fame happy results Therefore, gentlemen,
it is that those thousands may be convinced, and profit by
their conviction as I have done, that induces me to state be.
fore the world a period of suffering such as few h?ve
known, and the permanent relief I received from youi
Sarsaparilla. But how shall 1 begin, or bow describe Most |
excruciating agonies that seized upon my frame f Early
in the month ol June, JS10,1 was first attacked with rbeu
matism. caused, I have reason to believe, by a severe cold
contracted while nursing one of my child.-en, who was ibeii
very ill.
My suffering soon became intense, everywhere I seemed
diseased. For live months I was unable to walk, and toi
six weeks did not lie upon a bed, but was obliged to :email
in a sitting posture, thai being less agonizing ibun any oib
er. My whole body was so sore and rnrked with ptiin thai
the slightest touch censed inexpressible disires?. For a pe?
riod ot many months I did not sleep but two night.,and tin
only resi I obtained was during the day, when nature bt
came exhausted and I lell into a slumber, from which I wa
soon awakened by the beating and throbbing paia. M}
limbs were swollen and my shoulders drawn out of place,
and altogether I was rendered entirely helpless. 1 obtainei
the best medical advice, but without receiving any perma
nent relief. The rbeumaii-.m being combined wiib a swell
ing and painful affect ion of the joints, rendered itstill vSarse.
Tumors termed under the >km, round my head, wbici
caused burning and lanciatin? pains similar Im scrofula o
the glands.
My groans at night caused the watchman to stop in the
street as he passed by ; and when many of my friends re
siding in Poughkeepsie last visited me, they bid me fare
well, as they then thought for ever ; and once the family as
sembled in the room to watch the last spark of liiegoouL
Bui ihe flame of life again glared up within iri?j and soon
after this 1 heard of your Sarsaparilla, and determined It.
try it; and behold the resulL After taking one bottle th.
pain left me, and I was able lo walk an.i sleep. 1 coulo
scarcely realize the transition?so sudden, so complete. Al?
ter using four or five bodies, I was entirely cured. Ane
ire you alone, gentlemen, concerned lo know it.' 1 thud
not; and ttii.i language i? loo mild for ihe occasion. For I
know that the medicine that ponsxsses the power to cure me
is capable of conferring the same blessing upon ttiuusand
of others suffering'?perhaps dying; therefore, these are h.J
concerned to know ihat they can oe cured. In fact, all ar<
concerned in the discovery ot any thing that lends to pro?
mote the happiness of the human race; lor we are social
beings and cannot suffer alone. Persons may tinubt tin
statement if they will, and go on and suffer and die, 1 hav*
discharged a duty which I telt incumbent upon me in imik
ing it known for the benefit of those who choose to believi
iL And when I look into the past?upon those ?olitary day
an^ sleepless nights?1 thank God thai I awi as I am. Am;
