(Extract ofa letter from Doctor Wood.)
I am hi^Uy^tratjfied to hear that ihe "Relief Salve,"pre
pared by Dr. Charles Arnt, is beiag introduced to the public.
It possesses menu which will speedily give it a high rank iu
the confidence of yonr customers. It is decid- dly superior to
any other preparation wilh which 1 have my acqnaintancc.
I have made frcqurnt nse of it with the grente-t possible
success, ai d freely and cheerfally commended it to others i
fanuot wtUihold an expression ol surprise at thr happy effects
have known it toproduce in several eases of inflamed bmaste
(Ex'Tact from a letter written by a female to her relative.)
"Monday morning calledst Mrs. Hnlbert's. She had suffer
ed so long and so much with her breasts that 1 expected Iron,
what we had heard, to find her dead. They had, however, appli
ed ' Arm's Relief Salve' thnt night and tat next day. and to my
great satisfaction, I found her mtirelv relieved. After apply
ing it twice as 1 had directed, the milk suited a stream ; they
put the child to her breasts, and they are now both doing very
well indeed They call me the Good Samaritan for mentioning
the salve to them. 1 am very glad of being the means of doing
some good in tbe world." ?
Doctor Hallock?Sir: That the great virtue of " Arnt'a Re
lief Salve" may be knowj^to the afflicted, I deem it my dnty to
stale a few (acts eonnectrffl with my own cue. About twenty
years ago 1 received an injury from the iragment of a bursting
cannon striking ine in my groin; from that np to the ^present
lime I have suffered roach distress and pain, and
suited in a diffused aneurism, pervading ray leg and foot
Daring this protracted uaaon or snff'ring, I have had recourse
to all the" anre cures," and highly recommended " Fain Ex
tractor!," Itc., Iu., with no be. efit.
Having recently tiken a severe cold, mylrg was again the
seat of most excrnriatiug pain, and hsd sit the appcarauoa ol
immediate mortification. I was advised that, in order to save
ray life, my leg must be amputated. Again 1 resorted to the
various highly recommended remedies, bnt found no relief,
until 1 was peianaded to try the "Relief Salve" After the
first appL cation I fait arrest benefit: and on the second, the
dark mahogany color of my leg and foot changed to a natural
and healthy appearance By using two hexes the swelling and
inflammatio ? disappeared, and my leg became entirely free
from pain. It ia now in a better condition than it has been for
ten yaa-s. I do therefore recommend it strongly to others suf
fering from similar afflictions, and have no doubt it will prove
a highly valuable application for all the pnrpossw for which it is
recommended. Respectfally yours, Itc.,

We have information from the beach up to eight
o'clock A. M., yesterday. The bark Princeton, of
Batli, Me., Capt Rogers, is ashore at Absecon Beach.
She was from Matanzas for this port, consigned to
F. G. Thurston. She sailed on the 3d inst. The
cargo, sugar and molasses, is insured at the Atlantic
office, in this city. The company's agent has gone
to her with the steam pump.
Of the ship John Minturn, we learn that she has
entirely gone to pieces. The cargo is scattered for
many miles along the beach, and much of it has
already been stolen. There were on board fifty
one persons, all told. Thirteen have been saved,
among whom we are glad to find the second
mate, Mr. Sturgis, who was reported lost. Thirty
one bodies, from her, have been recovered, and
among them are the wife and two children of Capt.
Stark, Mr. and Mrs. Kohler, and some others of
the passengers, whose names are not known. A
dead female, with a child firmly locked in her arms,
was also found. Mr. Smith, the mate, is lost ?
The bodies were found at a distance of from five
to seven miles from the shi .
The body of Capt. Thomas Freeborn, the New York
pilot, had not been found yesterday morning. His
brother is on the beach searching for him. No loss,
since that of the Now York pilot boat Gratitude
has caused such a general and paralyzing griet
among the pilots and their friends, as that of this
inestimable, zealous and fearless man, who was
dearly beloved by an extensive circle of acquaint
ance. Tue sorrow of his mother and sisters is not
to be assuaged. Many mourn him as a brother?
for the angry waves never enghlphed a nobler sailor.
The relentless surf st:ll moans over his body; but
the sea can give up its dead, and be at peace, whilst
years will not efface the remembrance of his good
From the seamen of the ship we learn, that from
the moment when Capt. Stark found it necessary to
take this New York pilot aboard, Mr. Freeborn
was indefatigable in his endeavors to save the ship
and lives, but he split e new main-topsail aed fore
topsail in trying to keep off shore, and all the head
Bails being crippled, was compelled to attempt to
run her ashore. He squared the yards and headed
her for the beach. She struck on the outer bar, and
the second blow broke her back. She forged ahead
about two lengths and then brought up. Exertion
was made by tne captain and mates to send a boat
ashore with a heavy line. The first boat was stove.
The yawl was tried with better success ; bat the
current carried her far to the southward, and the
line was too short They could not nay out from
aboard, and as the boat was in the unaertow, in the
surf, they had to cut the line to save their lives
The loss of the rope was truly disastrous?tor, al
though it was in broad daylight, no entreaty could
induce the Jerseymen to try to board her, although
two of the seamen immediately offered to attempt
to return with the surfmen.
Unfortunately, the former efficient wreckmas
ter, John S. Forman, was removed from office on
account of his politics, and a man with little skill,
and less energy, has his place. At ten o'clock
there were many big-boned Jerseymen on the
beach, and all on board had good hopes. The
pilot, Freeborn, who thought the men on snore were
human, cheered all hands by his encouraging voice
and manner. Hour after hour passed?some of the
sufferers, stout men, dying from time to time?but
?till there was no succour, and yet Freeborn was on
the alert, active in the cause of humanity?shelter
ing with his own clothes, and all he could gather,
the women and children.
Capt. Stark, from a warmer latitude, soon became
benumbed, and all hands gathered on the fore-top
gallant forecastle, and on the foremast. Four o'
clock came ; it was low tide, and the surf abated?
but no boat was sent off by the wreckmaster.
Night came on, and the stoutest were appalled.
The tide rose, and the ship broke up rapidly. The
top-gallant forecastle gave way, and Capt." Stark,
with Freeborn, the women and children, all fell in
to the forward part of the ship; the broken.timbers
were tossed about for a moment, and the shrieks of
the dying ceased. Some of those on other parts of
the broken ship were washed ashore with life.
Thus perished Thomas Freeborn, and with him
It is the opinion of the seamen saved, that no
lives would have been lost, if proper exertion had
been used on the shore. When Mr. Forman was
wreckmaster, he drew a surf boat several miles,
at a gallop with horses, and Baved the lives on the
Austrian brig Astros, when the thermometer was
9 deg below zero. On this occasion, the excuse
was, that there was no surf boat near. But it is
in proof that the crew of the New Jersey were
saved at the same time by a good boat's crew.
As night came on, the wreckmaster offered ten
dollars tor every life which could be saved, but the
useless boat he presented debarred all hope. He
had but little command of his men, for, although he
set guards on the shin, she was boarded that night,
and every passengers trunk, and seaman's chest,
was cut or broken open and pillaged. The Cap
tain's chronometer was stolen, with about glOJO in
gold, which he had put in it,and locked and strapped

here yesterday morning. A greater amount of snow
has fatten than at any time this winter. There was no
mail from Now York yesterday, and wa accordingly
have no later intelligence from the South. The churches
yesterday presented a " beggarly account" of empty

We were visited on Sunday with a regular old fash
ioned Northeaster. The atorm commenced about dav

about 6 P. M. The snow is badly driftad, presenting
accumulations in many of our streets, ol from 4 to 6 fsat
in height, and tha average level is probtbly not loss than

churches were thinly attended, and in several of

She arrived ofl? Nauset on Friday morning, and anchored
about two mile* from the shore, but was unable to ren

breakers. On Saturday tha wind abated, and 80 bales
of cotton war# landed from the bark Oregon. Tbe steam

shaped hia course for Provincotown. Between lour and
five o'clock, tho (term commenced from tho Eastward,

?urlace of tho sea white with foam and drifting spray.
Still tha steamer R. B. Forbes, although she steered se
veral coursoe, and consequently was exposed to tho fury
of the atorm in all positions, performed beautifully. Har
propellers never jaried, but kept her steady on bar
course, though she careened over to hor bearings. Cap
tain Fowlartays that it was tho most severe gale that ha
hod experienced for fivo year*. She arrived safely at
Provlnootown about half past eight on Sunday, anchored
and remained there until yesterday, whan she left. Cap

part of crockery and atone ware, destined for Philadel
phiu ; and the agent or tho Messrs. Adams 5c Son, (Mr.
Ball,) applied to the Ocean Insurance Company for a
policy covering the invoice* ao consigned. An error of
a 1000 was made in footing up the gross amount of the
different invoices, and instead of having obtained a poli
cy for ?3,163, ho had taken one for but ill, 158, or about
$6,600, rather than the great amount of $10,000. Thia
ship (theWm. Brown) struck an iceberg,and waa totally
lost, and the plaintiffs now seek to recover tho whole
amount of their policy. Tho defence sot up technical
inaccuracies in the policy, and other juat grounda for
withholding payment. Thia matter haa boeu soma time
in arbitration, and various methods have been resorted
to in order to settle the difficulties which exist between
the parties. It will probably occupy the entire time of
the court to-morrow.
