Lirtt on the Proposed Dexecration of Trinity Church Yard,
The Old Church Yard.
Air—“ Old Arm Chair.” «
I leva it, I love it I my heart were hard,
Bld I not dearly love this old church-yard I
I’ve look’d upon it as a holy spot—
Time from my memory never can blot
Those feelings of rev’rence, deep in my heart,
’Till from thia frail booy life shall depart.
> Would’st thou know why theie warm feelings I guard,
With such pious care, for this old church yard?
’Tis because my Mother lies burled there:
A mother, whose constant and tender care
Watch’d over my childhood—and, in my youth,
Taught me »he way to worship God in truth ;
The spirit of prayer I the first time felt,
When by this beloved Mother I kxelt:
They'll si.rely the dust of such mother regard,
And not disturb it in this old church-yard
A fine web encircles my mother’s tomb, —
I wove :t in filial affection’s loom ;
If burst asunder, my heart too will break,
Oh ! spare her grave for the poor orphan’s sake :
E’en tte fine ola trees that shadow her grave,
Demand you should them from the rude axe save:
Fear ye not your joys in life will be marr’d,
If j e dare to distort this old church-yard 1
Will net the Almighty with men be wroth,
If guilty of deeds that would shime a Goth ?
Trampliog ueder their feet, with, u* just cause,
Our most holy instinct-:—and Nature’s laws :
If patriotism held a place in their breast,
They’d, at least, let “ Liberty’s ” martyrs res' :
Will not her sons rise up “tn masse ” to guard
These a artyrs’ relics in this old church-yard ?
Should ye persist this chureh-yard to invade,
Where fifed t e men to wield fur ye the spade ?
No u JNatioer t * with all your wealth, cm be bough’t,
To • et decency and feeling at nought,
Ard I’m sure none born in the Sme-ald Isle.

“ You have Been convicted by an intelligent and
moEtiefjectahle jury of yonr countrymen, of the fear
ful ciime of murder, perpetrated on an unarmed man
with a deadly weapon and by an angry arm. Let the
remainder of your life be spent in imploring pardon
from an offended God, who in his book has said, ‘Thon
shalt not kill,’ and again, ‘whoso sheddeth man’s
blood, by man shall his blood be shed.’ Rely bn the
merits of a Christ—a Saviour, who died for all men ;
and may God, for His sake, wipe your sins out of His
eternal record. The jury, in consideration of your
former excellent character and the deep provocation
you had received, have recommended yon to the mercy
of the King, But I implore yen to place no hope on
that. Their wishes (as is my duty,) shall ba laid by
me at the foot of the throne, but I must tell you to
p'epare for death. The sentence of the Court is, that
you. Charles Gordon, be conveyed from this court to
. the jail of B , there to be kept under sure ward,
and fed on bread and water until Saturday, the 14th
day of June next, on that day to be taken to a place of
execution, and there to be hanged by the neck until
you be dead, deac|, dead—your bedy to be deliveredto
tl e i urgeonsft r dissection. This I pronounce for doom,
and may the Lord have mercy on yonr unhappy soul.”
Such were the terrible words addressed by the Lord
Justice Clerk of Scotland, more than a hundred years
ago, to a fine looking young man, the prisoner at the
bar of the justiciary court, and I have quoted the lan
guage of his lordship at the beginning of my “ ower
true tale,” that the New World may receive some idea
of what was done in Britain in the olden time, in such
cares. The young man listened to his horrible fate
with manly courage, and respectful composure. When
the judge bad finished his address, the prisoner bowed
to the court and said:
“I think you, my lord, for your kiedtesr to me this
day ; you have done your duty, and it ia only right
. th, 11 should die for lifting the red hand against poor
Willie Wilson. I have little wish now to live in’this
w< aiy world—l do not fear death, but if your lordship
would only grant me. Christian burial after my spirit
has taken ita flight —I am indifferent as to the rest.”
His voice became tremulous, and the judge, motion
ing to the jailor, the prisoner was removed to his
cell, while the audience, rushing and jostling each
other, made their way tumultuously to the open air,
from which they had been excluded for nearly twelve
While the poor prisoner is being chained down in
the condemned cell, let us look back uson his unfor
tunate story.
Provost Duff, of B , had an only daughter, whose
mother, in giving her birth, gave back her own life to
Him who had infused vitality into another. The Pro
vost a stern, proud personage, was a man well to do
in the world ; and as his daughter Alice grew up, his
' only aim and pride seemed to be to add acre to acre,
and pound to pound, that she whom he regarded as
the apple of his eye, might ennoble him ; for he by his
innate force of-character had risen from comparative
obscurity, to the responsible position which he occu
pied. She was worthy of all his pride and all hia toil.
Beautiful and good, nene looked so well at “kirk or
market” as she, and what was better, she did not
teem to know it. Of course as she advanced in life,
and her bloom of beauty and her rare qualities of
heart and mind became every day more and more ap.
parent, many of the young men in the neighborhood
—men who derived their nobility from their adherence
to the plough—were spumed by the proud stern pa
rent, and allowed no trifling, as he called it, with his
daughter. For a long while there was no need on his
part for this prohibition. Good and generous to all,
she never showed any of that trifling which so often
leads to sorrow and regret when it is too late ; but
“Lord wIT venture in, where It Caurna weal be aea-i”
and my sin pie story will addanoth ir melancho
ly instance ot the fact so beautifully expressed by the
Mr. Duff had frequent occasion for a clerk, and at
length for the sake of convenience, as his business in
created, he hired iota his establishment a lad, the son pf
a schoolmaster of a neighboring parish. Charles Gor
don was a noble ycung man. His education was
much superior to that of most of his companions, for
bis father, educated for the then unfortunate Episco
pal Church of Scotland, was a scholar and a gentle
man,-and be with his wire, determined that Charles
should be both. His parents died within a few weeks
of each other, leaving their boy at the mercy of the
world. He was considered fortunate to be hired by
the rich Mr. Duff as helper of all work, and copying
clerk in the office. And there was something about
him that made him respected. His winning ways—
his literary knowledge (at all times appreciated in
Scotland) enabling him to tell stories on the winter
night, or on the still summer eve, won for him the affec
tions of ell around him ; and the proud Pro
vost, never dreaming that a penniless orphan, taken
into his house for charity sake (as he often used to
say), would dare to cast the look of love at his daugh
ter? Charles wes entrusted with the education of
Alice. ■ The quotation used above became a truth to
them. He dared to love her, and she loved him.
In the neighborhood of the town where my story
has its hegining and ending, a tribe of Gipseys had
for many years been encamped. In those days the pro
ceedings of these erratic people were winked at by the
magistrates, and Mr. Duff went so far aa to tolerate the
{rresence of one of the gang, a fine looking young fel
ow, in hie house; ostensibly for the purpose of tinker
ing cr mending pots and pans. This person, Jamia
Wilson, was the son of one of the chiefs or great men
in his tribe, and from having done some service to
Mr. Duff, the young man was a great favorite with
him, and generally with his household. Six feet and
three inches in his pumps, strong and muscular in
proportion, few men dared to affront him. Yet like
most men of his kind., knowing well hia strength and
agility, he was forbearing and generous to a fault.
So said the tribe. He also loved the beautiful Alice
Duff', hut he had never, even by a look, received en
couragement from her, nor did he ever dream, for a
moment, that he could become her husband, even had
his passion been returned.
“He wort-hipped, like a devotee, the star he canid not
He was aware of Gordon’s attachment to Alice,
while, at the same time,Gordon possessed the Gipsey’s
secret; and this fact led the young men to regard each
’ othe r with a jealous eye.
Alice Duff had attained her eighteenth year at the
time when my tale commences. I have told already
that she was very beautiful; and, if I have not said so,
I will now add that she was very good. Her father
she adored, whilst every one in the household got from
her a kind word, and she was courteous to all. It is
. io wonder, then, that, in addition to the poor clerk
and the gipsey, some other wooer of a higher grade
ehonld-come f_"ward.
Sir James Giant, of that ilk, sheriff of the coun’y or
jshire of Banff, a man of wealth and influence, beloved
alike by rich and poor, called on the morning after a
splendid ball (for in the times of my story balls were
splendid) at the residence of Provost Duff, and,.to his
astonishment and delight, stated that his only son,
James Grant, had asked him (Sir James) to call on the
worthy Provost, and request his consent to allow him
the honor of paying his addresses to his daughter
Ambition follows so closely on prosperity and sud
denly acquired wealth, that you need not wonder,
worthy reader, if Provost Duff grasped with avidity at
the prospects held out to him by such an alliance.
/lis daughter a titled lady 1 Bom in utter obscurity—
wealthy aid vain—the bribe was great, beyond expres
sion, to the Provost.
The baronet was kind—the Provost was courteous;
aid, to make my story short, I may. jast say that a
compact was made between them, that in tbree months
yourg Grant should marry Alice Duff She was called
in, ai d ftimally introduced to Sir James, who was de
■ lighted with her artless, manners and rare beauty;
and when he took his leave, he said to the Provost,
with a smile, “ I do not wonder, Mr. Duff, that my son
described your daughter to me this morning ia such
"'"flowicg language. Adieu, dear young lady, au re
voir. We shall soon, I hope, be better acquainted.”
The Provo-1 did not immediately communicate to
his daughter the intelligence which filled up the mea
sure of his vanity, and crowded his mind with ambi
tious creams. He allowed her to express her opinion
of the baronet and his son. “She admired them
both, ' she said ; “ the father as a fine old gentleman,
and his son as a frank and intelligent young man.”
But her father saw that love towards the latter had no
part in her ideas, and he saw it with concern, for well
he knew the firmness of her mind.
Ia the early part of the year, shortly after what I
have related above, Mr. Dull’ gave a ball at hia own
splendid mansion to such of the neighboring gentry
and inhabitants of the town, as his rank and station
in society gave him a right to invite to his house. Of
course the sheriff and his eon were of the party ; and I
need not say that young Grant paid every attention to
Alice that was in hia power, and danced with her all
the evening. But although she was frank and kind y
towards him, no expression of affection or love could
he obtain from her, for alas 1 she had that bound
around her heart of hearts, which like a cold icy
shroud, kept out the form of all mankind save one, and
he was her father’s poor clerk, who only dared on this
night, to dance with her who was all in all to him,
but twice. Yet secure in her love and affection, and
plighted troth, he suffered no jealous thought to take
possession of his mind, and as he beheld her beautiful
term mingling in the gay dance, and now and then
caught a glance from her dark blue eye—he was hap
py, and so was she, for the last night of their lives.
On the day following the ball, Mr. Duff called his
daughter into bis office, and without preface informed
her of the flattering offer and splendid prospects she
had before her. He expatiated on what was to follow
to both herself and. family from such an alliance, and
was proceeding to appoint a day for the ceremony,
when he beheld her sink down on a chair, pale as the
whitest marble, and nearly as cold.
“ What thesis this, my child—my own Alice?” he
eagerly exclaimed, advancing towards her.
“0, father, father! I cannot do this thing without
sin,” she gasped out after a pause, while the blood
rushed violently into her face, aa suddenly as it had
left it.
“ What do you mean?” screamed the now excited
man, as he grasped his daughter by the arm.
“ Spare me, 0 my father, for the sake other who
bore me ; lor I cannot marry that man.”
“ Cannot, cannot I” shouted the Provost, “ but you
shall by G 1 ■ ay, if I should chain your hand to his
in molten iron at the very altar, you shall marry Mr.
Grant! Cannot, indeed ; pshaw, you are dreaming,
child.” 6
Poor Alice made no answer, but coweringly she
sank back in her chair, covering her beautital eyes
with her hands. At this moment Charles entered the
office, and stood transfixed with surprise, looking from
one to the other in astonishment.
“ What is the meaning of all this?—what is the mat
ter, Mr. Duff?” he faltered out.
“O, you shall hear, Charlie, you shall hear. I have
reared my child, who sits before you, for eighteen
years with love and affection, and never till this mo
ment did she thwart or disobey me; and now, forsooth,
the dares to think for herself 1 Hear me, Charlie: the
son of our Sheriff has condescended, through his
lather, to offer himself as suitor for her hand, and
think—only think—she ‘ cannot marry that man!’
But, she shall, by !”
Poor Charles staggered as if stricken by lightning,
. and gazed in mute agony from one to the other. No
sound came from his lips, but a stiffed gasping seemed
to rend bis strong and muscular frame. Mr. Duff gazed
on him with astonishment, and instantly the truth
flashed through bis brain.
“ Hahl” he exclaimed, in a paroxysm of rage, “so
this is the reason why she cannot marry Mr. Grant.
So, sir—so, madam—this fine, poor gentlem nis your
lemsn, is he? Fine work—fine work,” he ejaculated
bitterly, “ and I was the blind dolt not to see it.” He
paused, and then burst out in a voice of thunder,“Out
dog, son of a dog! out of my house, and if ever you
dare to cross my door step again, I will horse-whip you
till you are flayed! Out, beastly dog,” and he dashed
the poor young man out of his office with a violent
Charles, with burning shame marked on his fine
face, his strong frame quivering with emotion—bat
tling with the conflicting emotions of love and passion—
scarce knowirgwhere he was or whither he was going,
passed from the office on to the kit .-hen with rapid and
unsteady strides, and in a state of mind bordering on
distraction, threw himself on a settle and borled bis
now ashy face, from which drops of cold sweat were
oozing, in his trembling hands. James Wilson, the
Gypsey lover before alluded to, was sitting under the
spacious chimney as Charles entered, and looking up,
with a sardonic grin on his swarthy features, he ex
claimed :
“ Hey, Charlie,- has my bonny Alice been speaking
cross words to you ?”
Charles did not alter his position, nor seem -to hear,
although a slight shudder passed over him. Wilson
rose from his seat, and advancing towards him, he
laid bis heavy hand on his shoulder, saying, at the
tame time, sneeringly, “ I’m thinkin’ ye hae played
out your play up stairs yonder, and turn about, ye ken,
is fair play.. So I'll awa to the bower cf bonny Alice
. Dull, and see if it isna me she likes best.”
Charles started to his feet, his every limb and feature
convulsed with passion. He was satisfied that Wilson
had overheard all that had passed.
“ Y'ou—you—you!” he thundered out; “ Gipsey,
tinker, thief, coward 1” and he clutched Wilson by the
“ Hands off, Charlie 1 hands off!” cried the Gipsey,
“or I’ll do thee an injury !” 'But Gordon, who seemed
fairly crazed, only struggled the harder to fix his gripe
upon his burly antagonist’s throat. “ Nay, then, if ye
will not desist,” cried the Gipsey, “ I must teach ye
manners. Take that 1” and as he spoke, with all his
force, be hurled the young man from him, and he fell,
stunned and bleeding, upon the floor. It was bat for
a moment that he was stunned, for with the agility of
a tiger he again sprang to the attack, but the Gipsey
caught him in his herculean embrace, and while he
held him as he would have held a child, he added fuel
to the fury which had already rendered Gordon per
fectly frantic, by taunting him with remarks concern
ing Alice, and the manner in which he would pay her
court during his (Gordon’s) absence. At length, ren
dered absolutely a manjae, the young man, by a pow
erful effort, broke loose from his tormentor, and seizing
a large kitchen knife, lying within his reach, he plunged
it up to the hilt into the breast of the unfortunate
Gipsey. Death was almost instantaneous. The only
words uttered by the wounded man being, “You ought
not to have done this, Charlie, God forgive ye !”
»< rds which rang in the unhappy homicide's ear till
his earthly career was ended.
Tte Provost alarmed by the scuffle, and the scream
of the affiighled domestics, came hastily into the
kitohen and stood in astonishment as he looked on
the terrible scene.
“This is your sin, but it is my work,Mr. Duff,” said
the now utterly careless youth, and he threw the knife
oa the floor adding: “I am your prisoner, sir.”
A strange smile, passed across the feature of the
Provost. He made no remark lespeeting the unfor
tunate transaction, mi rely skying “let the officers do
their duty, who are present. Let the door be shut
aid closely warded, for the prisoner is dangerous.
Bring a rope, Adam (to one of the officers) and bind
him hand and foot.”
“You might have spared me this indignity, Mr
Doff,” said Charles, “a child might lead me to the
“I will spare jou nothing, sir, no, nothing that the
law can put upon you. Not the smal'est boon that can
be wiih held will I administer, till the hangnum's
work is done.”
**** * ■ * *
And how fared, during this dreadful hour, the vic
tim of her father’s ambition ?—when she fell down on
the floor of the office, her father stood gazing on her
with stern, unflinching eyes. He left her to be
present at the scene in the kitchen, and on his re
turn lifted her in his arms and bore her to her room,
laid her on her couch, and by every act of kindness,
endeavored to arouse her to consciousness. But it
was long ere the blocd assumed its wonted flow, and
with muttered curses on poor Charles Gordon, he
left her in charge of her old and faithful nurse May
eie, that he might superintend in person the removal
of his bated prisoner, and attefid the precognition of
Procurator Fiscal, who, without the aid of a jury,
nearly assimilates to. the coroner of the county.
Both dutirs were easily overcome, for short was the
story that told of the guilt of Charles, and shirt was
the time that led him to the jail.
****■ ■ * * * »
“And dear Maysie, where is Charles?” enquired
Alice of the old nurse, a fe w mornings after the above
transactions, of which she had been kept in blissful
ignorance, took place.
“He’s awa hame my ain benny doo,” was the affect
ioiate response.
“And did he leave no word, no message for me ?”-
“Ha,” answeied Miysie, “he had na time. He got
the cast of a led horse that was going into Macduff,
an’ ye ken your father was unco sair upon him.”
Perlaps it was well for her that at this time she was
able to weep very bitterly, for her woe was great, when
her father entered the room.
“ I demand,” he said imperiously and with flashing
eye, “ sn answer to the proposals of the son of the
sheriff. And it is very likely that you will never see
the face of that d d boy again. I give you till to-
morrow at ten o’clock, when, if you choose to obey me
you may be the happiest of women. Ay, and a titled
lady too. If not”— He did not finish the sentence,
but left the room without looking at bis daughter.
Let the reader imagine to himself what a night that
was to .the poor, motherless girl, after she had
wormed out of her old affectionate nurse, bit by bit, all
the particulars of the terrible story. And strange as
it may teem, after the whole had been made known to
her, her passionate grief changed into a gentle sadness,
and befoie she retired to rest, she sent a note to her
father, telling him that if she lived for three months, on
that day three months she would marry the son of the
sheriff. Her father came into her room, kissed her and
blessed (?) her, and said : “ So let it be, Alice—pluck
up your spirits and all will go well.”
“ Well!” sighed the orphan to herself, “ well—yes,
for there is no suffering in the grave 1”
After this event, the sheriff s handsome and really
amiable son became an almost daily visitor at Mr.
Duff 's house, and there is little doubt but that, had not
the image and plighted troth of another been too
deeply centered into her affections, she might have
made to him a happy wife. Alas 1 it was not to be.
My “owre true tale” must now go back to the period
when Charles received his sentence, with all the re
ligious solemnity of a Scottish court of justice. He
was conducted to the condemned cell, the heavy Irons
wire placed on his feet and around his body, and the
unhappy and unfortunate young man was 'left to his
reflections. He did not fear to die. Hehadtoomuch
sterling courage in him for that. Yet knowing well
the hold he had on the heart of Alice Duff, he could
not help asking himself—“ Poor girl 1 will she forget
me ?• will she survive me ? No,” said his proud heart.
He was thus conversing with himself, when the door
of his cell was opened and the jailor entered with all the
cautiousness of the jailors of those days and produced
a letter, which before giving to him to be opened, he
examined in every way. Small caution was needed
here. It was from Alice.
“ 0, lore of woman ! thou, art known to ba,
A vary lovely, and a fearful thing ”
The letter explained what has been already said of
the offer of young Mr. Grant. That she had promised,
on a respite of three months, to marry him ; that she
had told her lover, that unless he, through his father’s
influence at court, which was great, could obtain a
pardon for Charles, she would not marry him; that
the generous young man had at once accepted the pro
position as a part of the agreement, but never would
he force her to become his wife against her inclination;
and, at the same time, he assurred her that every
means should be adopted to obtain, at least, a reprieve,
if not a pardon, for the unfortunate Charles.
Cased within walls of granite, and bound in chains
of iron, the unfortunate Charles wept tears of joy. He
blessed his dear Alice. He called down blessings on
his generous rival.
Time rolled its ceaseless course along. Hope in
dulged had brought no solace. He had written to her
father for permission to see Alice before he died, even
if he himself were present, but it was refused in indig
nant and stern words. He saw her no more—yet she
did him.
Let me hasten on.
The day for the execution of Charles Grant came
on. It was a lovely day in June; one of those days
when earth, sea and sky aie blended together. Not
a breath of wind stirred the leaves of the forest.
The bee hummed past lazily, and the laverock seemed
to have forgotten his native song. The -Moray Frith
lay calm and smooth as a mirror, reflecting at inter
vals the lovely scenery of its opposite coast from Banff
in the grey-blue of its waters. The ships lay with
their sails idly flapping against the masts «r yards, as
the ebb tide gave them volition; while the sea-birds
seemed asif they had made this a. holiday, for not one
could be seen on or near the mighty waters or in the
air, where the day before they flew in thousands,
screaming and wheeling all over the Frith. It was
very unlike a day on which one of God’s noblest crea
tions was about to die a miserable—ignominious
The hour of exeoution had been fixed at two in the
aftertoon; and, long before that time, hundreds of
country people might be seen pouring into the town of
H ,in all kinds of conveyances, on foot, on horse-
back, carts, or anything which would carry a human
being, to see a fellow-creature die.
Slowly, but surely, the hours passed on. They who
had no watches knew not the time, in consequence of
the town-dock having been stopped that the unfortu
nate man might have no notion of time, and neighbor
asked neighbor how time progressed. At last, their
abominable curiosity was set at rest.
Headed by the town officers with their halberts,
came on the melancholy procession. Seated in a cart
the unfortunate criminal was visible to all—the Epis
copal clergyman the town seated beside him; the hang
man skulking behind. The Sheriff-the magistrates'
and a numerous body of inhabitants brought up the
rear, and soon they reached the gallows: a tall'pole
with a cross beam on the top, from which hung the
fatal rope. Charles said but little—xoressiug his
deep regret and contrition for the terrible' error which
he bad committed., and praying for pardon for all his
sins, and forgiveness to all his enemies. The cart
moved under the beam—the hangman did his business,
and in a moment poor Charles hung in the air
a quivering corse!
Whence that shrill cry ?
Behold a young and handsome woman with dis
hevelled hair and frantic gesture, tossing over her
bead a crimpled paper. The crowd catch up the cry!
“Reprieve! reprieve 1 cut him down—cut him down!”
and amid tremendous uproar, poor Alice Duff; for she
it was, rushed to the foot of the gallows, and fell at
theleetofthe Sheriff who took from her hand the
paper she held. Hastily glancing at the document,
he cried—
“ Cut him down instantly!” and he was immediate
ly obeye d : but alas! too late. The convict was dead.
The paper brought by Alice was a repreive dated
three weeks back, and addressed to the “Chief Magis
trate of tie town of B—, from His-Mujestys Sec. of
State. The Sheriff ordered Mr. Duff to be arrested.
It was little matter—the tragedy was complete, and for
aught that its principal actors would have cared,the cur
tain might have fallen indeed. Charles was-dead.
Alice was mad, anel became the inmate of a Lunatic
Hospital. As to the father, high interest procured a
mitigation of What might have been to him personal
ly a serious matter. But he who always judges right,
and administers his sentence accordingly did not
spire even intbis world the miserable man; for child
less and friendless, he dragged out his mis
erable life to weary old age. Misfortunes of every
kind overtook him. His riches took unto itself wings
and flew away. The torch of the incendiary destroy
ed his property—disease carried off his live stock—
“ His cattle died, and blasted was his corn!”
A dear and never to-be-forgotten mother told the
writer this story—and his grandfather well remem
bered a miserable old man who traversed the country
as a beggar, and who, if asked his name, would reply
that he was once called “The Provost Duff!”

The fleet which Great Britain ia getting in readiness for
a new “ Battle of the Baltic,” the first division of which
Queen Victoria in pernon, and tens of thousands.of her
subjects, cheered and bleesed on its departure from Ports
mouth, and, when all together, will number 44 vessels,
with 2.200 cannon and 22,000 man, driven by 16,000 horse
power of steam, and which, without exception, is the
most powerful and magnificent naval armament thtt the
world has ever seen, is to be commanded by Vice-Admiral
Sir Charles Napier.
The appointment of this veteran, fire-eating officer to
this command, is coneidered & sufe iodisation, both at
heme and abroad, that the British Government is at last
ir earnest. Though sixty-dight years of age, so temperate
and active have been the habits of his life, that he is still
in the maturity of vigor, both in body and mind ; and he
proceeds to the Baltic with a hearty gc.od will, and a
determination that the scars and honors of the past shall
by no means be dishonored in the Russian waters.
The Napier family have held a prominent place in the
ant als cf England during the last half century. The late
Sir Charles James Napier, the hero of ths Scinde, was a
fire and successful soldier Another Napier is the author
of the “War In the Peninsula,” a voluminous and elo
quent ret ord of Wellington’s Campaigns in Spain; and
others of the family haveserved in the army and on em
bassies, with honor. A “rough and ready” practical
way of accomplishing things, is a common characteristic
of them all, though they hy no means lack talent and ap
preciation cf honest, real refinement, as is sufficiently
indicated by their literary successes The Admiral him
self is the author of an account cf the Portuguese war
between Don Miguel and Don Pedro, in which ha took
part, a sketch of the war in Syria, and sundry pamphlets.
Hie stinging letters in the Times, cn the defects in Naval
architecture and abuses in the British Navy, will be
remembered for many a day yet. An honest, straight
ferward coming to the point, with a most resolute will,
and a faculty cf perceiving at a glance the best way, are
said to be the prominent .characteristics of Sir Charles
The Napiers are Scotch. Their feat is at Murchir ton,
in the county of Stirling. Sir Charles is grandson of tha
fifth Lord Napier, and was born in Scotland on the 6th of
March, 1786. Before he was fourteen he entered the
British Navy as a volunteer, and for fifty-four years,
without the aid of external appliances, has worked his
way by hard knocks, upward, to the top rounds of the
ladder in his profession. In 1802 he reached the post of
midbhipman. In 1805 he became a lieutenant. In 1807
Le was made acting commander of a brig, aad the next
year, while commanding tha brig Recruit, he fought a
French corvette of superior strength, and put her to
H l ** engagement his mainmast was shot away,
ano he severely wounded, one shot having broken his
thigh; nevertheless he refused to leave the deck and re
mamed bravel yat his post until tha victory was achieved.
In 1809 Sir Charles had become a captain, and was
present at the reduction cf Martinique. A fort on that
h.and (Fort Edward) was to be subdued, and at the head
of a forlorn hope of five men I the gallant sailor scaled
the walls and planted the union jack on the ramparts
He subsequently assisted in the capture of a Frencn sev
enty-four, the d Haupolt, and was placed in command
of rhe prize with the rank of post captain.
In 1810, the liench fleet, having been literally swept
from the ocean, and there being n« longer any work to
do at home, Sir Charles proceeded to the Peninsula a? a
volunteer m the land service, and placed himself under
the command cf the Duke of Wellington. Tnere he par
ticipated in several battles and greatly distinguished
himself. In 1813, he was employed ia the expedition
“tted out in Sicily, and assisted in conquering the Inland
ü ßZ *’ ? n lx . ce of a superior force; for
wh.ch services the King of the Two Sixlies conferred on
him the title of the Cavalierre de Pouza. He also served
m the expedition against Alexandria, and his gallantry
was particularly zoticad in the dispatches. In 1815, a
general peace having supervened, Captain Napier was
rna< 'l R Companion of the Bath, and the vessel he com
manded, the Earyalus, was paid off and laid up.
A long period or inactivity followed, until 1829.. From
that periea to 1832, he was in command of the frigate
Galatea, but re. ignsd hie post, by permission of the British
Government tu take command of the Portuguese fleet on
the tide of Don Pedro. He met the more numerous fleet
cf Dun Miguel off Cape St. Vincent, and defeated it, by
which event the crown of Portugal was secure l ! to the
late Queen Donna Maria. By reason of these services, he
was created a Portuguese noble by the title of Count Cape
St. Vincent, and endowed with the Grand Cross of the
Order of the Tower and the Sword. In this Portuguese
battle, the odds were much against Sir Charles. His fleet
consifeted of frigates and corvettes, while that of hbs enemy
btsidee being greatly superior as a whole, included two
' line of-battle ships. Several characteristic anecdotes are
’ related ot thu period of Napier’s Hfe, some of which were
brought up Bfresh, and related by Lord Palm'’rs*oa,
at. the recent dinner given to the veteran in London, by
the Reform Club. Palmerston complimented Sir Charles
with having been the first io board one of these line-of
battle fbip?, which Sir Cha ; les modestly denied. It ap
peered that Sir Charles’s only son, who was lo«t in the
Avsnger, and Capt. Wilkinson, were the brave boarders
on the occadon referred to. In speaking of the Admiral’s
coolness, Palmerston stated, that when he scrambled on
one of the enemy’s decks, and was calling on them to sur
render, a Portuguese efficer came at him full drive to run
• him thrergh/when Sir Charles quietly parried the thrust,
and instead of taking vengeance on hie assailant with his
swcid, gave him a kick which sent him tumbling down
the hatchway.
Lord Palmerston mentioned another circumstance, rela
ted to him by tha late Lord William Russell, “who told
mo,” said he,“that one day he heard that my gallant friend
was in the neighborhood of the fortress of Valencia, a
Portuguese fort at a considerable distance from the squad
ron. He and Col- Hare went to see, and he told me that
it was not long before he saw a man dressed in a very
easy way, followed by a fellow with two muskets on his
shoulders. They took him at first for R.ibinson Cruaee,
but they soon ascertained it was friend and a
marine following him. ‘Well,’ said he, ‘Napier, what are
you doing here?’ The answer was. ‘l’m going to take
Valencia.’ ‘Bat, Sir,’ said Lord William Ruesell, ‘Valen
cia is a fortified town, and we soldiers know how fortified
towns are taken. You must open trenchee, make ap
proaches, and establish batteries and breaches. All these
things take a good deal of time, and must be done ac
cording to rule.’ ‘Oh,’ said my gallant friend, ‘I have uo
t’me for that. I have got a blue jacket here with a ship’s
musket, and I mean to take the town with a letter ’ Aad
so he did. He sent the governor a letter telling him that
it was much better to surrender at discretion. The gov
ernor was a very sensible man, who know what sort of a
fellow he had to deal with, and so surrender he did. The
trenches, approaches, batteries, and breaches were all
saved, and Valencia was handed over to the Queen of Por
tugal ”
In 1839, Napier was transferred to the command of the
Powerful, an 84 gun ship; and in 1840 was made Commo
dore, and despatched to the Mediterranean as second ia
command, under Admiral Stopford, to head Mahomet Ali
and Ibrahim Pacha in their conquests in Syria. Here he
landed at the head of a party of marines, foaght several
battles and gained several important victories; among the
rest, storming the town of Sipon, and taking three or i
four thousand Egyptian prisoners. He also played an im
portant part in the storming of Acre. Afterward, at the
head of a division of the fleet, he proceeded to Alexan
dria, and had the address in the character of a diploma
tist, to induce Mehemet Ali to evacuate Syria, and relin
quish his conquest.
On returning to England, in view of his brilliant servi
ces, he received the thanks of Parliament, was made
Knight of the Bath, and Naval Aid-de Camp to the Queen,
and was honored with the insignia’of the Russian and
Prussian Orders of Chivalry. In 1846 he was raised to the
rank of Rear Admiral, and in 1853 to that of Vice-Admi
ral. At the Reform Club Dinner he emphatically said :
“ I express the hope that in the expedition upon which I
am setting forth—a very great expedition. I cannot say
of war, because we are at peace, but it is very near war;
and possibly when I get into the Baltic, I shall take an
opportunity to declare war—it is to be hop. 1, I say, that
I shall be able to give as satisfactory an account of that
expedition as of the preceding ones. I hope that the end
of that war will be prosperous ; and I hope this with con
fidence, because I may safely say that this country never
sent out such a splendid fleot as that which is now going
to the Baltic. ” The response of Sir James Graham was
equally decided. “My gallant friend says that when he
gets into the Baltic, he may declare war. Now, Z as First
Lcrd of the Admiralty, give him my free consent.' I hope
that that war may be short and sharp; and being entrust
ed to his hands, I am sure it,will be decisive.”
In 1841 Napier was elected to Parliament from the great
London borough of Mary I -bone. Bat he could not make
a party man, and the Ministry found him totally unrelia
ble. He had an awkward habit of coming square out
.with the truth, and a deeply-rooted antipathy to all
shams and expedients. Generally he was found with the
Reformers, and though he professedly supported the suc
cessive administrations of Grey, Melbourne and Russell,
they found him a difficult customer to manage ; for when
they only talked a reform, he meant it and worked for it
as a reality. • After his splendid successes in Syria, it was
the general expeatation of the pation that he would be
placed among the Lords of the Admiralty, but this did
not suit the views of the Ministry. The truth doubtless
is, they were afraid of him ; and for this his pampbk’
and articles on the Navy gave thera abundant occae
Of this the Government complained, contending that s
strictures, if tine, should not have been made publi< q
but privately communicated to the Admiralty. To is
Napier replied that this would have been a certain .y
not to obtain reform. His suggestions, however, t ;re
can be no doubt, have led to those improvements which
have now enabled England to exceed herself in the mag
nificent force she has now got together for the humilia
tion of Russia. The spite of Ministers was farther shown
by a refusal some time ago, to appoint Napier to the com
mand of the Mediterranean fleet. But now a change
coice. A great thing is to be done—a great gap is to be
filled, the Autocrat of the North is to be bearded among
his glaciers, and the voice of the nation at once selects
the man to take command, with a point and force that no
ministry, did they desire it, could well resist.
As a speaker, Napier is bold, straightforward and con
vincing. He cannot reason, but jumps at conclusions by
intuition, and makes his positions strong by a powerful
array of facts. Occasionally he exhibits a good deal of
humor. In person he is under the middle stature, but
very stoutly built, with white hair, and a full, hearty
face. His manner and address are particularly frank and
pleasing. He walks with a h&lt, the consequence of his
broken thigh in his battle with the French corvette, early
in life. The eyes of England and the world are now fixed
upon the movements of this man, and we doubt not he
will be able to give a good account of himself, his guns
and his ships.
This gallant Turkish general, on whose movements the
eyes of the world are now fixed with unusual interest, is
reputed to be an Austrian by birth and a Greek by descent.
He was born in Austrian Croatia, near the beginning of
the present century, and is accordingly not far from fifty
years of age. His family name is Lattas. His father was
an officer in the Austrian service. He had an uncle who
was a Greek priest, and a son of that priest now holds a
military post in the Austrian army.
Young Lattas received his education at the normal mil
tary high school of Plaski, his native city, and in the ma
thematical school cf Thurrn, near Cm Is tad t: where, by
diiiger ce and the thorough training of his mental powers,
a foundation wks laid for his future eminence. Among
bis accomplishments was the somewhat unusual oue fur
a prospective military wan, of a most beautiful hand
writing, which was destined in after years to prove a chief
of his advancement.
Having completed his studies, Lattas was received as a
cadet in the Austrian army, and incorporated with the
Ogulin regiment. Here his chirography attracted atten
tion, and Major Cajetan Kreezig interested himself ia the
youth’s fortunes, and procured his appointment to a civil
place, where this accomplishment could be better dis
played. But Lattas did not long retain the post. Hois
said to have neglected his duties; and the truth probably
is that his mird was eveu then too full of ambition and
fch» mes for the future, to allow of his confining himself
to the petty routine of a draughtsman or copyist. He re
signed his place, and quilting Austria in disgust, passed
over the boundary line, which was near at baud, into
Turkey; whence his family had originally emigrated.
Lattas entered the service of a Turkish mer
chant, where bis superior qualities soon bt-eatne mani
fest. Finding a path of promotion open before him, he
renounced Christianity, adopted the religion of the Mos
lems, and received the appointment of private tutor to
the children of his patron, and accompanied him to Con
stantinople. This was abeut 1830. At the capital, the
military proclivities of Lattas, now Omar, brought him
acquainted with various persons attached to the army,
and secured him the friendship of Chasrew Pacha, then
Seraskier, who procured him admission into the aray, at
tached him to his staff, and gave him his ward in mar
liage, one of the richest heiresses in Constantinople. But
this part of the life of Omar is involved in a little obscu
rity. V» bile some of his biographers refer his rapid rue
to the friendship of Chas'ew P&cha, others state that hs
first became ■writing-master in a military academy, whence
he was transferred by the late Sultan, Mahmoud 11, to be
writing master to his eon, priace Abdul Medjid, the pres
ent sovereign of Turkey ; and that it is to ths friendship
of this prince, that he owes his promotion. There is pro
bably Intle doubt but that he was once writing-master to
Abdul Medjid ; and without doubt, the intimacy then es
tablished has redounded greatly to Omar’s advantage;
and the fact of his connection with the family of the Sul
tan, may, naturally enough, have stimulated still farther
the kina feelings and efforts of Chasrew Pacha-in his bs
half. t
In 1833, Omar geemsto have occupied the place of chief
of battalion, and filled the post of Aid de-camp and Inter
preter to General Chiz.mo-.-ski, who had charge of the Ot
toman troops. Here he made himself very serviceable
frena his knauledg© cf tactioe, and rendered efficient aid
in the re-organization of the army, especially in ita corps
cf artillery, which now bear so high a reputation. Seve
ral important missions were entrusted to him, and in the
insurrections of Syria and Albania, in 1846, he.greatly
distinguished himself. Afterwards he was sent to Kur
distan, and succeeded in gaining the submission of that
turbulent province, which had nearly cast off the author
ity of the Pcrte. In 1848 he was apppointed to the com
mand of the Danubian army, and had the firmness and ad
dress to cause the authority of the Sultan to be respected,
while he steered clear of.all encroachments on the rights
of those provinces, as jointly guaranteed by Russia aad
But it was in 1851 that Omar Pacha won his richest
laurels ; in the pacification of Bosnia, and in the Monte
cegriu affair. It is well known that for several years the
Sultan has beea introducing civil reforms throughout his
empire, for the purpose of reinvigorating its decaying
itrergth. This has been a work of great difficulty eve
rywhere. The Turks cling to their old forms and habits
with the tenacity of life ; and at an earlier period, it
will be rem ember-d, the opposition of the Janizaries to a
like system of reforms in the army, was the immediate
cause of their destruction by the preceding Sultan,
Mahmoud. The system cf civil reforms, embracing mat
ters of very great importance to the welfare of the peo
ple, introduced by the present Sultan, is known as the
lanzimat .Against this, the Bosnian chiefs, a large num
ber of feudal petty princes, Mohammedans in religion,
but of Sclavonic blood, rebelled; and Omar Pacha was
sent to recuce them to subjection. In this delicate and
disagreeable undertaking, he acquitted himself with great
zeal ai d discretion ; but it was not until after a long and
severe struggle, that h-e succeeded in quelling the ineur
lecticn and subduing the spirit of these turbulent chief
tains. In the settlement of the affairs of the province,
he is accused of haviig acted too much the part of a
Moslem conqueror toward the Christian population, not
withstanding that their condition was vastly improved
by the enforcement of the Tanzimat.
Mcxitenegio (Black Mountain) is a small irregular
mountainous region, lying on the extreme west of Euro
pean Turkey, on the borders of the Adriatic. From the '
nature of the country and the half civilized condition of
its inhabitants, the authority of Turkey had for a long
period been little more than nominal within its borders,
and it became a field of Austrian and Russian intrigue.
The government of the Nontenegrine was a mixture of
the civil and rtligioue, their Vladlka or Frinoe being both
king and priest. Oa tha death of their late ehief fuao
tlcn.ry, however, th: ough foreign mschinatioas, doubt
less, he was succeeded by Daniel Petro.witsh Niegosh, a
creature of the Emperor Nicholas, in the character of a
civil ruler simply, thus effecting a chaaga in the order of
th. government itself. The Porte saw at once, and Omar
Pacha enforced the position; that the province was lost to
the Oticman Empire, unless stronger efforts the.n had
hern resorted to thould be adopted. to cause the wishes of
the Sultan there to he respected But while tie Divan
still had the subject in debate and undecided, the Monte
negrins themselves settled ths question by a declaration
of war
Omar Pacha was now placed at the head of a regular
army of 10,000 men, and invaded Montenegro. He con
ducted himself like a wise and skilful General, and gained
some successes. The result doubtless is well remembered.
Austria, irritated against the Sultan for protecting the
Hungaricu refugees, for employing Polish exiles in his
army, and tor various other reasons equally
weighty, espoused the cause of the Montenegrins. The
question was transferred to Constantiaonle and become
one of diplomacy; and as the Sullan had not yet despair
ed of saving himself and his empire by concession to his
rapacious neighbors, he also yielded ia this case, and
withdrew his troops from Montenegro. Still thegood
conduct or Omar Pacha throughout the affair was every
where praised.
Omar Pacha is now on the Danube with his centre at
Kalefat. Hia.conduct for the many tedious months dur.

Desperate Rencontre on Ship Board.—
The Louisville Courier of the 24th ult. gives the fol
lowing description of a desperate fight on board a
steamer:—We have often heard of meeting a murderet
on the high seas, but seldom have to record such
scenes of violence as occurred on the steamer S. F. J.
Tranbe, on the Mississippi river, daring her recent trip
from New Orleans. As is usual at this season of tbe
year, the boat was crowded with deck passengers,
chiefly flat-boatmen from the Wabash and coal-boat
mt n from Pittsburgh. 1 Among the latter was a set of
turbulent, quarrelsome men, who were about half
drunk when they got on thp boat at New Orleans, and
had a fight or two among themselves before the boat
left port. Capt. Tucker was notified by a friend who
recognized one or two of the men that he would have
trouble with them and they would try to take the boat.
Scon after the boat-was under way, and before she
bad proceeded many miles up the river,.one of the
Pittsburgh coal-boatmen attacked a Wabash man who
waß quiet and peaceable, and had said nothing to him,
and knocked him down and beat him dreadfully. Two
cf his friends interfered to save him from further ill
usage, when they were beset and beaten ne irly to
death, and ose of them had his arm broken by a
blow ot an axe in the bands cf one of the rioters. The
deck bar was open, end another passenger, a small
man, stepped up after the first fray, and called for a
drink. While he was in the act of drinking, a burly
fellow, a bully among the coal boatmen, stepped up
and seized him by the neck, choked him, and threw him
to the deck as if he were a chicken, and then stamped
on him. He was suffered to get up, and so soon as he
i egained his feet be drew a knife and inflicted a terrible
wound in tbe big man’s right bresst, which placed him
on his back during the rest of the trip, and on the
arrival of the boat here he was sent to the hospital.
Not long after this occurrence, the coal boatmen be
came perfectly wild with liquor, or their anxiety for a
fight, and were heard to swear that they would take
tie boat and do as they pleased. The deck was
crowded with passengers, and the quiet and orderly
had no peace or rest, and were beset every moment.
Capt. Tucker then determined to quell the riot, and
summoning his crew, among whom were twenty-one
Spaniards, arming them with short clubs, hatchets,
and whatever weapons he could, he marched to the
lower deck, and endeavored to restore order, and put
the rioters on shore. The rioters laughed at him, and
one big fellow shook his fist under his nose, and defied
the whole crew. The Spaniards, in solid phalanx,
armed with a club and a long knife, were ordered to
advance and seize the ringleader. Then ensued a
scene of strife and confusion seldom seen on the deck
of a boat. The Spanish crew, however, were victo
rious, and managed to secure four of the ringleaders,
who were tied neck and heel, and peace was at once
restored. The chief of the mob was not caught, and
for several days could not be found, and it was thought
that he, together with four or five others, had jumped
overboard and either drowned or swam ashore. Seve
ral of the cabin passengers aver that they distinctly
saw three or four men in the river, and as the affair
Fa pened soon after ths boat left New Orleans, it wav
impossible to tell wuo was lost. Dniing tue nislee, a
coal boatman by tbe name of Blakely, was much hurt,
and dangerously stabbed in the side. He was taken
care of by the officers of the boat, and sent to tte hos
pital. The mate of the Tranbe received a ent ia the
head from a knife, which be caught jusilas one of the
mutineers made a lunge at him. The four that were
arrested were put off the boat soon after the affray
was quelled, and when the boat was in tte neighbor
hood cf Millikin’s Bend, the big fellow that had been
missing was found, and was forthwith set ashore. He
had been secreted under the cylinder timbers. No
further outbreak occurred during the trip, though
many threats were made just before the boat reached
the port. The discipline of the Spaniards, and the
determination of the officers of the boat, put an effec-.
tual stop to the lawlessness of the coal boatmen.
Another Victim.—The following account
of the sufferings and impositions to which foreigners
are subjected, is from the Rochester Union.— “ A poor,
hall-clad, Irish girl steed shivering at the depot last
evening, awaiting the cars for Charlotte, to take her
to the Toronto steamer. So freezing was the blast,
that tbe tears almost congealed upon her cheeks as
she briefly recited the tale of her sufferings since
she left her home in the Green Isle. Eleven weeks
she occupied the steerage of a ship in crossing the
ocean ; but a stormy passage against wind and wave
was nothing to the hardships reserved for her oa her
landing in the commercial metropolis of America.
Alone—friendless and unprotected—she fell into the
clutches of those merciless wretches, the ‘ scalpers,’
who dignify themselves by the appellation of ‘ passen
ger egents.’ They robbed her of what little means
she had, and gave her a passage-ticket to Rochester,
.and left her to get food and lodging on the way here
as best she might. She had a sistar residing at To
ronto, to meet whom she has braved all dangers thus
far, and is, doubtless, ere this, at her destination, as
she left in the steamer last night. This is only one,
and not one of the most aggravated, of the thousand
instances that occur yearly, in which the unfortunate
emigrant is plundered by the hounds .that scent them
on the ocean, and strike their trail as soon as they set
foot upon our shores. Thus far legislative action has
done but little toward protecting the emigrant against
fraud, and nothing short of a total abolition of the
whole passenger agency business will ever effect the
desired object. Emigrants never complain of robbery
by railroad conductors or steamboat pursers. Tue
robbing is performed by men who get a per cen'.age
for securing passengers, and the proprietors of the
lines, who lose just the amount of that per centage on
each passenger carried, are compelled to stand a share,
at least, of the odium attached to emigrant swindling.
While they continue to employ these wretches, they
deserve all the odium they receive. The only security
to the traveller is, to pay on board the conveyance he
takes, and this will be found the cheapest way in tbe
Mtstrrious Murder in Shropshire, Eng
land.—John Lloyd, a farm laborer, has been commit
ted for trial at the Shropshire assizes, on the charge
of having murdered John Gittins, a village black
■ smith, who resided at Nescliff, eight miles from
Shrewsbury, on the Holyhead road. On the 28th
of Feb., Gittins arose about five o’clock, and, preced
ed by his son, a youth from 16 to 17 years of age,
went down stairs. He had scarcely seated himself
near the fire place in the kitchen, to lace his boots,
when a gun was discharged through the kitchen win
dow which struck him on the forehead. His wife
almost immediately came down stairs, snd saw a pool
of blood at the feet of her husband. She asked him
if he was hurt, to which he replied in the negative;
and after some further conversation deceased was in
duced to go up stairs and rest on the bed. He lay
there abor.. .aif an hour, when he again came down
stairs and lighted a fire, and then returned to bed
again. Finally, he was removed to the Infirmary at
Shrewsbury. What led to suspicion against the pris
oner, Lloyd, was the fact that the murdered man was
known to have been jealous of him which had led to
a quarrel betwen them. The prisoner had formerly
lodged at the house of the deceased, but the deceased
had compelled him to leave for the cause stated. Evi
dence was also given that on the Sunday evening be
fore Gittins was shot, the prisoner begged a precus
sion cap from a farmer’s son, under the pretext that
he wanted to shoot wood-pigeons where he was work
ing; and he had al-o borrowed a gnn rod from John
Jones, a blacksmith, Nescliff, which was found in his
father’s farm. Mr. Humphreys, house surgeon at the
infirmary, stated that on March 3d (the only time de
ceased was collected in his mind), Gittins told him
that during a conversation with the prisoner in the
stable, on the night he left his lodging house, Lloyd
said he would blow his (Gittin’s) brains out. The
prisoner, on being called up to answer the charge,
said, I have nothing to say—nothing at all.” He Was
then fully committed for trial at the assizes.
A Highway Robber Killed.—The Vernon
(Oneida County) Trnscript, of the Ist inst., has tbe
following: Mr. Paul Guiger, a worthy citizen of this
town, while on his way from Syracuse, to Manlius, in
Onondaga County, the first ot last week, observed a
man coming out of the woods which skirted the road
at a little distance behind him, swinging carelessly a
pocket handkerchief which seemed to contain some
weight in the end. As Mr. G. had some money with
him, (he having received some S4OO from the Bank of
Vernon a day or two before,) he was suspicions of the
fellow’s movements, and as circumstances afterward
warranted, not without cause. He therefore took his
knife out of his pocket, and finding it in order, kept it
in his hand. The.fellow walked quite fast, still swing
ing his handkerchief, and as he gained upon him, ifi.
G. stepped aside and let him pass. Immediately after
tbe fellow slackened his pace, so much so that, with
very slow walking, Mr. G. found he was gaining upon
him. He therefore was in the act of passing him
again, when the fellow, with a sudden jerk of the
handkerchief, struck at Mr. G., hitting him upon tbe
back side ot the neck, evidently aiming- at Ms head.
Mr. G., immediately upon feeling the blow, fetched his
band containing the knife around suddenly, and struck
tbe fellow on the back of the neck, inflicting a fright
ful wound, killing him instantly. Mr. G. hurried on to
the next house, informing the inhabitants of what he
he had done, and giving himself up to the authorities.
They found upon the person of the fellow two revol
vers end a slung-shot in the handkerchief. A coro
ner’s inquest was held, and the circumstances corrobo
rating the statement of Mr. G-, he was honorably
acquitted. We congratulate him on his exceeding
narrow escape.
Touching Tragedy.—That realities, the ac
tual events of life, are sometimes romantic as the
dresmsof fiction, and appeal more deeply to the feel
irgs and sympathies, we do not doubt, and have be
sides a case in point to demonstrate the truth of the
trite idea. An inquest was held in New Orleans, a
short time since, upon the body of Mrs. Mariana Lowe,
a beautiful German lady, aged 16, who bad been mar
ried but a short time, and who up to a few days pre
viens to her death, had lived in apparent happiness
with her husband. They resided on Thalia street, be
tween Camp and Prytania, and not long after their
marriage the exacting lore of the wife became alarmed
by strange reports of the conduct other husband,
which were confirmed by various circumstances coming
under her own knowledge—his altered manner towards
her, his frequent absence from home, etc. Her jealous'
fears were awakened—she dreaded their confirmation,
but she sought and obtained the truth; and that truth
brought the conviction with it, that she no longer en
joyed her husband’s love; it carried despair to her soul.
She learned that her husband had formed an illicit
connection with a woman in their immediate neigh
borhood. Having traced him to the house and became
convinced of his guiit,”she returned home and penned
a letter addressed to him, in which she indulged ia no
reproaches, but expressed her affection for him and her
grief at his faithlessness in the strongest terms, declar
ing that.nothing was left her in the world worth living
for, and that she woulij forgive his injustice and die.
She then procured an ounce of laudanum from an ad
joining drug store, swallowed it, and in a few hours

High handed Outrage.—On Friday night,
about ten o’clock, says the Philadeipha Register, of the
3rd inst, a German, named Charles Fisiier, recently
from Washington, D. C., preceded down town in search,
as he said, of a washerwoman. He was met by Susan
Harding, a colored woman and a notorious thief, to
whom be made known his business. She conducted
him to her house in Bedford st, below Sixth under pre
tense of getting him a person to do the washing, and
after they got in she told him she was hungry, not hav
ing had anything to eat that day, and begged him for
twenty five certs, whereupon Fisher pulled out his
pocket-book to give her the money for food; his be
nevolent feelings being excited for the poor woman.
Susan immediately left the house under pretence of get
ting food, but scon returned with two notorious thieves
named Benjamin Pryor and James Sordin, who rushed
upon Fisher with drawn knives, and demanded his life
or his money, Pryor(holdiug Fisher firmly by the col
lar. Fisher, frightened almost to death, drew out his
pccket-book and threw it on the table, vfhich was
seized by Sordin. They then stripped eff his coat and
gloves. At this stage of proceedings Fisher holloed
loudly, and breaking from their hold, threw his back
against the door, leaped down a flight of stairs fifteen
feet in height, and ran into the street. He was directed
to the S. E. City Station-House, of the Marshal’s Police,
and officeis Zane and Kane were promptly on the spot,
and succeeded in anesting the above named thieves, to
gether with Elizabeth Williams, an accomplice. Susan
bad pawned the coat. They were taken before Aid.
Crowell,and committed to prison in default of S3OO bail
each to answer at court.
Tebbible Homicide.—Another bloody and
mysterious murder took place in New Orleans a few
drys since. Tbe victim was a well-known watchman
named Mocler, who for a long time had been stationed
on St. Charles street. It appears that on the morning
of the murder Mocler went into the cefiee house called
the Church, situated on Poydras street in the neigh
borhood of the market, where, after having some words
with a man named Charles Holstead, he struck him.
at dit is said knocked him down. The barkeeper then
tinned Holatead out ot doors, and Mocler shortly after
words followed him. A moment or two subsequently,
Mocler went into another coffee houss, a door or two
from the Church, went to the bar and asked for some
brandy. The barkeeper noticing that there was blood
on his clothes, asked him If he had been cut. He an
swered, “Oh, it’s nothing,” and immediately fell down
and expired. On examining his body, it was discovered
that he had five wounds, one on his side, one ia the
neighborhood of his heart, two on his right arm, and
one on his back. An inquest was held on the body,
but no clue to the identity of the party who inflicted
ths wounds could be discovered, and the verdict re
turn d, attributed death to wounds inflicted by some
person or persons unknown. Holstead was arrested
during the day on suspicion of having been concerned
in the killing ot Mocler, and Thomas Wheelan, Wm.
Conway »nd Elijah Harper were arrested as accom
plices. The testimony against them is entirely oircum-'
A Brutal Clergyman.—The Senate of
Pennsylvania, says the Borough Item, aid honor to
itself in the passage of the divorce of Mrs. Susan A.
Brerson, from her brutal husband, Samuel M. Bronson.
The lady in question is tbe daughter of a Methodist
clergyman, in the State of New York, and is repre
sented as not only amiable, but moral and intelligent.
She became enamored with Bronson, and after a brief
covrtship, consented to become his wife. It was not
long, however, before this act was regretted. ■ About
two years eince, the parties left New York for Tioga
county, Pennsylvania, where Bronson was employed
as a preacher of the gospel. After a residence of ten
months, the mother of Mrs. Bronson visited them. She
soon discovered that her daughter was in a decline.
The conduct of Bronson, as testified to by the mother,
of such a character as to shock the heart of the
most calions wretch. The details of hisjbratal treat
ment are harrowing to human nature, and totally unfit
for publication. The mother remonstrated with Bron
son, but it was of no avail. Her daughter upon tbe
occasion was found senseless, covered with Mood, and
carrying upon her person some eight or nine black
and blue spots. These facts became known to the
people, when Mrs. Bronson was taken from the
clutches of the brutal wretch and sent to her friends ia
New York, where she now remains. Bronaon fled, and
has not since been heard from.
Singular Charge of Abduction.—The
Baltimore Argws, of the 3d inst.,says:—There arrived
in our city, late on Saturday afternoon, from the city
of New York, Mr. Henry Batehelder, who immediately
availed himself of the services of the independent po
lice firm, Potee, Graham and McKinley, in the view of
recovering, if possible, his wife, four children, and the
furniture of his dwelling, all of which had been seized
in New York, during his temporary absence, and hur
ried by the wholesale abductor on to this city. The
bereaved husband succeeded in finding a hackman
who had conveyed bis wife and children from the
abandoned residence to the Jersey City Ferry where
he ascertained that their baggage had been checked
to Baltimore. A man named Wm. Hutton was sup
posed to be the abdactor, and officer Graham, of tbe
firm, having made his usual enquiries crowned his ar
rangements with thd arrest of Hutton the same eve
ning at a late hour. He was taken before Justice
Cook, by whom he was committed for a further exam
ination. The officer also succeeded in recovering al!
the missing goods, but, so far, tbe children have not
been recovered. Some inkling of .their whereabouts,
may, however, transpire upon tha further examina
tion of the accused which will take place thia after
attempted Murder and Horrible Suicide.
A frightful event took place in Birmingham, Ehg., a
short time since, when Wm. Taylor, a shoemaker, re
siding with a widowed mother in Sherlock street, after
attempting to take the life of a yousg woman named
Walton, cut his own throat, and almost, immediately
afterwords expired. The deceased and his widowed
mother were tenants of Miss Walton’s father, and Miss
Walton was in the habit of collecting the rent. She
bad called for that purpose on the occasion in ques
tion, and having received tbe rent, was making some
kindly enquiries about the health of the deceased, who
had been unwell, when, without a moment's warning,
be sprang upon her with a razor, grabbed her around
tbe neck, and drew the instrument across her throat
and face, inflicting a series of ghastly, but fortunately
not fatal wounds. The frantic man’s mother seized
npon him, bnt before she conld prevent him, he had
cut his own throat from ear to ear. The unfortunate
widow was herself dreadfully ent upon the arms and
wrists. Tbe Taylors’ were highly creditable people,
and not the slightest misunderstanding existed be
tween them and Miss Walton. Tbe unfortunate man
was without doubt laboring under temporary insanity
A Beastly Cannibal.—A couple of jail
birds named James Fanning and James Sullivan, who
were locked up together in a cell of the Parish Prison
at New Orleans, recently,'had a difficulty with each
ether which resulted in a fight of the most brutal and
savage description. They were finally separated by
the turnkey man much' in the manner that lion-tamers
settle quarrels between their animals when they begin
to use their fangs and claws upon each other. Sam
ian had «ed his teeth to great advantage, and had
got tee beet of the battle decidedly; he had bitten
Fanning severely on the breast, had bitten off one of
h's ears, and had chewed one of his fingers until it re
sembled a bit of raw flesh which had partly undergone
tbe precess cf mastication, and then been rejected as
unfit for the stomach; he had also nearly succeeded in
the ingenitus experiment of gouging ont an eye for hia
opponent, giving that tender organ the appearance of
laving been submitted to an operation of strabismus
which had terminated unfortunately. Fanning was
otherwise bruised and injured, and he has accordingly
entered complaint against his room mate, the conse
quence of which will probably be to remove the pros
pect of Sullivan’s release to an indefinite period.
Murder and Execution in the Creek Na-,
tion.— The Chickasaw InteVigencer says:—We learn
from gentlemen recently from the Creek Nation that
about three weeks ago a negro slave (Jim) belonging
to Mr. Watt Grayson, residing at North Fork, N. C.,
murdered two Creeks, one named Menowa, who had,
by order ot Mr. Grayson, tied hh—the negro’s—broth
er, whom Mr. G. had sold to a ttader from Louisiana.
Subsequently, by order of several chiefs of the Creek
Nation, he was condemned to be executed according
to tbe forms of the Creek law—and seated on a log,
his head covered by a blanket, he received two rifle
balls, and fill dead. The executioners were tha near
est relatives of the deceased. Now, though we have
no doubt but that this culprit richly deserved his fate,
we cannot tat express our regret that he was not hand
ed over to the United States authorities, to be tried by
their law, as an evidence that the Indians are a law
abiding people, and unwilling to wrest from the Uni
ted States jurisdiction which they claim over all of
fences committed in the Indian territory, “except
crimes committed by one Indian against the person or
property of another Indian.”
Inhuman Parents On the 10th ult. a man
by the name of Amor, and hia wife, living near Sligo,
Henry county, Ky., were brought before Esquire Ga
lispie, for the cruel treatment of the husband’s child, a
little girl about six years old. The proof was conclu
sive. The child had been cruelly whipt and scalded!
It was covered with braises and scars. It was taken
from the inhuman pair, and they were unfortunately
released. The man did not deny the chaige, but laid
it on his wife ; said he could not control her, as she
threatened to take his life. The child had been kicked
across the room, even into the fire, in the presence of
its father and others. On the Tuesday following the
trial, the two demons dis ippeared ; and on the Friday
afterwards the poor child died. In addition to the in
human violence, the little sufferer was almost starved
to death. It had been deprived of food, according to
the testimony of one witness, for twenty-four hours at
a time, and was reduced almost to a skeleton, and was
exhibited at the trial a most pitiable object. The wife
had children of her own, that fared differently.
_ A Shocking Murdeb.—The Texas Repub
lican states, that Mr. James Gentry was murdered at
his plantation in Upsher bounty, by his negroes, a man
and woman, who, after having killed him, built a log
heap and consumed his body. It appears that he was
engaged in the evening with the negroes in fencing in
some new ground, when the negro man knocked him
down with an axe, and the negro woman completed
the murder. Mr. Gentry being missed, the boy, to
elude suspicion, went over the neighborhood on Sun
day inquiring for him. The citizens made search, and
not finding him, they went to the field he had been
enclosing, and seeing the remains Of a large fire,
ecraped np the ashes, and the result was, they found
a few bones, a pocket knife, and some brass buttons.
The negroes were immediately charged with the mnr.-.
der, and upon being closely iateirogated, confessed tha’
Mubdeb by a Negro Woman.—A colored
woman named Margaret, belonging to Mr. Geo.-
Payne, near Newark, Worcester county, Md., recently
killed a white boy, aged 15 years, named Davis. It
seems the two had been left by the family to take care
of the house, and it is supposed that a quarrej broke
out between the boy and the woman, when she struck
him with a stool, the blow of which stunned the boy,
and gave him several blows afterwards, as the braises
on the body indicate. Thinking that she had killed
him, she became frightened and drew him to the well
and threw him down. After Mr. Payne’s return the
bov was missed, and search was made for him, tat
without success until Monday, when by tracks of
bicod they were induced to examine the well, where
the body was found. Ths woman’s clothes were sub
sequently found to be stained with blood, as well as
floor of the kitohen. She is in jail.
Deplorable Mubdeb of a Stolen Babe.—
A most diabolical crime was committed in England,
lately, by a woman named Isabella Grozier, alias
Thompson.. She had been engaged aa a nurse in a
family of the name of Thompson, residing at Sunder
land, tat she had not been there but a few days, when
she stole the infant child of Mrs. Thompson, which she
carried off, and after lugging it around from place to
place for a long while, she at length gained admission
into a work-house, where, after many attempts to
poison it, which were frustrated by the physician in
attendance, who had no suspicion of the woman, sup
posing it to be tbe child’s mother, she at length
killed the little innocent by picking it up by the feet
and dashing its head against the iron bedstead. The
jury acquitted her on the ground of insanity, and she
was committed to an insane asylum during the pleas
ure of the Queen. The poor infant’s bereaved mother
was in court during the trial, and seemed almost crazy
with grief.
Mubdeb ob Suicide of a Young Female.
—A coroner’s inquest was recently held at the King’s
Arms Tavern, Camberwell, England, on the body of a
woman named Amelia Barter, alias Stratton, who was
found drowned in the canal near that place. It ap
peared in evidence that deceased had been seen on the
evening of her disappearance in the company of a man
named Stratton, with whom she had for a iong time
cohabited, standing in King’s Row. They both seem
ed to have been drinking, and Stratton was quarreling
with the woman, whom he struck on each side of the'
head, and who seemed to be in much pain. Stratton
was arrested, but as no testimony was adduced tend
ing to show that he had any direct hand in her death,
a verdict of suicide was returned, aad Stratton, after
a severe reprimand from the coroner, who charged
him with being instrumental in the poor girl’s death,
by his brutal treatment, was discharged.
Another Thagedy in Lexington, Ky.—
The Richmond Enquirer of April 3 says: It will be
.remembered that recently a bloody tragedy occurred
in Lexington, Virginia, by a law student butchering
a student of the Military Academy. Such a shocking
occurrence was well calculated to shield the communi
ty m which it occurred from the regrets and disgrace
of a similar tragical event for some considerable time;
bnt the bloody lesson seems already to have been for
gotten. A gentleman of this city yesterday received
intelligence from Lexington that another bloody mur
der has just been committed in that town. Mr. Joseph
W. Moore, the keeper of a hotel, was, on Thursday
last, deliberately stabbed with a knife or dirk while
standing in front of his hotel and from the effects of
the wound died in a very short time. The occurrence,
it is stated, gave rise to great excitement among the
people of Lexington.
The Recent Horrible Murder at Burn
ham, England— The man Hatto, charged with the
er the unfortunate girl, Mary Ann Sturgeon,
at Bumham, England, (the particulars of which we
have already given,) has made a full confession of the
crime. He says he murdered the girl while in a quar
rel with her about her not giving him his accustomed
allowance of beer; he also stated that he had loaned
her a sovereign some time previously, whieh.she had
tot returned. In the heat of passion he struck her
across the nose and month with a larding iron. She
closed with him, and a desperate straggle took place,
in which she came near mastering him. Eventually
she broke away from him, and ran up stairs to her
room, whither he followed her, and she falling upon
her face upon the live coals in the grate, he took up
the poker and beat her brains out.
Steamboat Robbery.—A most adroit rob
bery was committed on board the steamer John Simp
son, at Memphis, a few days ago. A New York jew
eller, traveling .with some samples of very fine goods,
consisting of diamond pins and rings, had taken pas
sage on the boat, secured his room, and placed his
baggage therein. He left the boat for a short time,
and upon his return found his baggage opened and ri
fled of its valuable contents. In addition to the jew
elry, he had some S3OO in specie/ which was also
making his loss in all over $2,000. His name
is L..J, Spring. He had been followed by two thieves
from V icksburg, who, with the aid of a notorious thief
here, probably victimized him. \

New and Dangerous Counterfeit Afloat.
—A new and dangerous counterfeit was set afloat in
Troy on the 31st ult., purporting to be $5 notes of the
Exchange Lank, Lockport. It was so well executed
that some of the banks officers were unable to detect it.
Lwo young men named Green and Koame were ar
leeted for passing the worthless money, but not till
they had got rid of a quantity of it at numerous hotels,
lhe prisoners have families, and have heretofore borne
good reputations. They say that they found the mon
ey in the street. On being searched, none of the conn
terieit was found in their possession.
Juvenile Depravity.—A boy named
while fighting with a companion by the name of
Holmes, m Philadelphia, on Sunday, was fatally
stabbed in the back by another boy, son of Mr. Specht
a brewer on Shippea street. Young Specht was ar
rested snd locked up for examination. Neither of the
boys are more than ten years of ags, and the whole
affair is a shocking instance of youthful depravity.
The prisoner says Holmes gave him the knife, and told
him to stab Seger.

that they have ®afie arraßgemonta with the eminent Professor
JAMES MfiCLINTOCK, M. D., of Philadelphia, known for
more than a quarter of a eentwry past as one of the greatest
Practitioners and Tkachbxs of Medicine and Surgery in thii
country or in Europe, for the purchase of his recipes, and the
preparation of a series of FAMILY MEDICINES therefrom,
whieh wtU be put up In a eheap and popular form, adapted for
general use, and suited to the most prevalent diseases. Those
remedies embrace some of the most valuable discoveries and
combinations ever known for the eure of disease. They are
the fruits of the most profound investigation, tha widest re
search, and the almost unequaled experience of one cf the first
physieians of tha age. Each remedy is espeoiailj adapted to
some particular form ot disbase, in accordance with the
these remedies has been tried, improved, and finally perfected,
in the course of a long, active and highly successful practice,
not only in Philadelphia, but throughout many distant sections
of the eouniry to which his great reputation has eallpd him.
Their nature and effect are known and approved of by hundreds
of regular physicians who kave been his students aad seen their
beneficial results in Dr. MeClintock’s own hands, while they
were under his tuition, in the Colleges.of Philadelphia, Castle
ton,Pittsfield, and elsewhere.
This is to certify, that I have placed in the hands of Messrs.
A. Cushman A Co., New York, the recipes of my “ Family
Medicine,” with my full authority to prepare and offer thorn fox
pepular use. They are such as I have been in the habit of re
commencing and prescribing for many years, and their compo
sition is well known to hundreds of regular physicians, who
have been my students, and who are many of them now prac
tising with distinguished success in ail parte of the country.
In securing the 00-operaitea of Mr. Alexander Cushman, who

We need scarcely remind the Intelligent public of the great
necessity which eedets for the introduction of a class of GOOt
and reliable pqfular medicines which may be confidently
adopted into family use and defended ox it all times in the
absence of a pnysieian, being the legiWreate produetion of
BWBNOE, Study and Experience. No argument is needed to
prove the immense superiority of such a class of remedies over
the dangerous compounds that are daily puffed into notice by
ignorant and roeklMs men, solely for the purpose of enriching
themselves at the expense of the lives and health of their fellow
beings. We trust confidently in the good sense of the commu
nity to support ns in this effort to extirpate the great publlo evil
of Quacke ht, by giving a careful perusal to the following list,
whicn embraeoß the first twelve remedies cf the series, and

saxgaine expectations. After witnessing the operation of the
Mill, and exam&Jlßg the simplicity, compactness, neatness and
portability rf tfeis desirable Mill, we were presented with some
of the fiorw ground while present, which, in quality, possesses
all the advantages of any we have ever seen. This truly valua
ble invention, when ready for use. occupies a space of only 3 ft.
diameter, by five feet high : and is ©apable of grinding and
baiting from to ten bushels per hour. It completely dis
perJos with all complicated machinery and gearing—having, in
fact, but on© shaft for grinding and the bolting r.r.~.eess. By this
simple invention, SLwO to SIy,OCO worth of machinery is avoid
ed, which, under «lie ordinary precess of manufacturing flour,
would be and is indispensably required. But, in addition to this
©senosay ©f capital and machinery, there is a large saving of
power—power oapable of doing a large amount of grinedng and
bolting. All the power and friction required and resulting from
the old nrocess, is overcome by this valuable Mill. Twelve of
theee Mills ©an be started In a compass 13 feet square—each Mill
manufacturing extra flour, superfine, middlings ship stuffs and
bran. The whole precess Is the result of a single operation; the
grain going in at the eye of the French burr stones, and making
is appealanee ready ground and finished flour, Ao., of the dif
ersut qualities mentioned above.
This Mill is applicable to any power, from four-horse up to
any ether desired. They can be furnished for S4OB, all complete,
ready to start; thereby b©ing brought within the ability of al
most every person who, by the application of rhe slightest
Sower, ©an put it into operation. We further regard the inven
cn as one of the greatest importance to millers, as an assistant
mill and bolt, by which means they will be enabled te make a
mneh larger yield of flour from the grain: likewise to the whole
eoKjnunitj’, and one which, we dcubt net, will not only be .ex
tensively used throughout tno United States, but also through
put the civilized world ; and, therefore, unhesitatingly recom
mend the same.

gPAGNE.—The undersigned respectfully request the atten'
tion of dealers, and the public generally, to the merits of this
superior win©. Although it has been but lately introduced, un
der its present designation, yet a discriminating public nav©
already dissevered in it an old standard and highly approved
wine. The present proprietors,
with an honorable dolieaey; net wishing to encroach upon the
purchased privileges of another house, have successfully endea
vored to establish for it a position in the name of the senior
Eartner, Charles Heidsieek, under which brand it will continue
> b© known.
We would here state, that the comparative consumption of
this wine, since its introduction, has exceeded that of any other
brand now in vogue, with a constantly increasing demand.
P. S.—IMPORT ANT—Connoisseurs of Champagne Wine are
respectfully notified that the genuine wines from the above
house are branded “Charles HiEDSiEeK,” in full on the label,
and that all other wines assnmingthe same name are not genu
ine. The baskets of our Charles Heidsieek have also a distinct
mark, as follows : “Chs. H.,” with four red stripes of willow
ontihe ©over. This ©hang© from “C. H.” to “Chs. H.” ought to
be especially observed, in consequence of the appearance of
baskets in the American market bearing initials resembling
their own. A careful observance of these marks will prevent
all mistakes. T. W. BAYAUD & CO.,

It is easy to make a physical jmS. but uot so easy to"

objections, but all too advantages, of every ether. Thia haa
been attempted hero, and wi*h wl»at nuecess we would respect
fully subneft to to© public decision. It has been unfortunate foi
the patient hitherto that almost every purgative medicine ia ao
rimosious and irritating to the bowels. This is not. Many sd
them produce so much griping pain and rewdsion in the system
as to more than counterbalance toe good to be derived front
them. These pills produce no irritation or pain, unless it arias
from a previously existing obstruction or derangement in tog
bowels. Being purely vegetable, no harm ©an arise from theta
use in any quantity; but it is better that any medicine should be
taken judiciously. Minute directions for their us© in the several
diseases to which they are applicable aro given on the box.
Ameng the oomplaints which have been speedily cured by them,
we may mention Liver Complaint, in its various forms of Jaun
dice, Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Appetite, Listlessnes©,
Irritability, Billions Headache, Billions Fever, Fevyr and Agio.
Pain in the Side and Loins: for, in truth, all these ar© but tog
consequence of diseased action in the liver. As an aperient,
they afford prompt and sure relief in ffoativeness, Pile©, OoHc.
Dysentery, Humors, Scrofula and Scurvy, Colds with sorenesa of
the body, Ulcers and impurity of the blood; in short, any and
every case where a purgative is required.
They have also produced sorao singularly successful cures ■
Rheumatism, Gout, Dropsy. Gravel, Erysipelas, Palpitation of
the Heart, Pains in the Back, Stomach, and Side. They should
be freely taken in tho spring of the year, to purity the blood and
prepare the system for the change of seasons. An occasional
dos© stimulates the stomach and bowels into healthy action, aud
restores tho appetite and vigor. To purify the bload, and, by
their stimulant action on the circulatory system, renovate thft
strength of the body, and restore the wasted or diseased energlea
of the whole organism. Hence an occasional dose ia advanta
geous; even though no serious derangement exist©; but unneces
sary dosing should never be carried too far, as every purgative
medicine reduces the strength, when taken to excass. The thou
sand cases in which a physio is required cannot be enumerated
here, but they suggest themselves to the reason of every body:

Mr. W. J. Langley,' of Huntsville, Yadkin, North Carolina, suffered
for nine years with one of the most painful and troublesome sore leg©
that ever fell to the lot of man; and after trying every medicine he had
ever heard of, he resigned in despair all hope of being cured: but a friend
brought him a couple of pots of Holloway’s Ointment, whicn caused the
sores on his legs to heal, and he entirely regained, his health, to the as
tonishment of his acqaintances and friends.
Mr. R. DURANT, of New Orleans, addressed Professor Holloway aa
follows : For 1 years my wife had a bad breast, with ten running wounds,
(not of a cancerous natvre). I was told that nothing could save her: she
was then induced to use four Ointment and Pills, when in the short space
of three months, they effected a perfect cure, to the astonishment of all
who knew us. We obtained your Medicines from Messrs. Wright A Co.,
of Chartres street. New Orleans. I send this from “Hotel des Princes,’*

at that time, net knowing your address at New York.
