Ohl there is something in a smile
To cheer, to comfort, and beguile
In hours of pain and sadness I
Causing the heart to beat the while
With throbs of joy and gladness.
What is more beautiful to see,
More sweet than guileless infancy,
Each tiny feather glowing,
Smiling, unconscious—it may be,
From whence its mirth is flowing t
The wrinkled brow of age would fain
Rival its youthful looks again
When on it smiles are beaming,
Nor can we think while they remain
Old age is aught but seeming.
Upon the plain—the homely face,
And those devoid of charm and grace
To an extent alarming,
If but a smile play for a space,
We think them almost charming.
When beauty would display her charms
In most bewitching form, she arms
Herself with smiles, and smiling
Hearts—the most icy cold—she warms
Love upon passion piling.
But oh ! the smile—all smiles transcends,
Is that which Love the visage lends;
What words can paint the feeling,
When o’er the features it extends
A glimpse of heav’n revealing ?

(Continued from last week.)
After this consecration, which was construed to indicate an
insincerity on the part of the Mormons as to their stipulated
departure, or at least a hope of return, their foes set upon
them with renewed bitterness. As many lied as were at all
prepared; but by the very fact of their so decreasing the
already diminished forces of the city’s defenders, they en
couraged the enemy to greater boldness. Il soon became
apparent that nothing short of immediate emigration would
eave the remnant. From this time onward, the energies of
those already on the road were engrossed by the duties of
providing lor the fugitives who come crowding- in after
’them. At the last general meeting of the sect in Nauvoo,
there had been passed an unanimous resolve that they
would sustain one another, whatever their circumstances,
upon the march; and this, though made in view of no such
appaling exigency, they now with one accord set themselves
together to carry out.
4 Defayed thus by their own wants, and by their exertions
to provide for the wants of others, It was not till the month
of June that the advance of the emigrant companies ar
rived at the Missouri. Ascending the river from ‘ Fort
Leavenworth, it wns here that the tr?veler joined them, not
withstanding he had been warned by all sorts of stories of
the danger of so doing. They were collected a little dis
tance above the Fottawafamie Agency. This landing, and the
large fiat or bottom on the east side of the river, were
crowded with carts and wagons; and each one of the Coun
cil Bluff hills oppos te was crowned with its own great
camp, gay with bright white canvas, and alive with the busy
stir of swarming occupants. In the clear blue morning air,
the smoke streamed up from more than a thousand cooking fires
The countless roads and paths checquered all manner of geo
metric figures on the hillside. Herd boys were dozing upon
the slope; sheep and horses, cows and oxen were fe jding I
around them and other herds in the luxuriant meadow of i
thetteu swollen river. From a single point, the traveler
counted four thousand head of cattle in view at one time. As
he approached the camp, the children there seemtd to be still
more numerous. Along the little creek he had to ciosss were
wemen in gr< aer force than blanchisseuses on Ue Seine,
■was hing and rinsing all manner of white muslins, led flan
nels and parti-colored calicoes, and spreading them to bleach
on an area of grass covering several acres. One of a group
of noisy boys pointed him where he had best go and seek his
welcome. He says there was something joyous for him ia
his free rambles about this vast body of pilgrims. He could
range the wild country wherever he listed, under safeguard
of their morning host. In every direction he could follow
Mormon roads, 1 eaten hard and even dustv by the
tread and wear of the cattle and vehicles of emigrants labor
ing over them. At night, if he encamped at the places where
tn timber and running water were found together, he was
alu ost sure to be within the call of some camp or other, or
at least within sight of its watchlires. Whenever he w»s
compelled to tarry he was certain to find shelter and hospitali
ty, scjnt, indeed, but never stinted, and always honest and
kind. After a recent uuvaoidable association with the border
inbabitan sof Western Missouri and lowa, composed of the
vie .-cum vhtci. our wa society, “like the great ocean
wa es < pon its fro t tier :hoe.,” he had the exquis
ite gr. ti..ca.ion o. associating again with persons who
were almost all of Eastern American orfein—persons ofre
fined and cleanly habits and dr cent language —and in observ
ing their pecu and interesting mode of life, while every
day seemed to bring with it its own especial incident, fruitful i
in the illustration o. halms and character.
It was ar this time that the Mormon battailion of 520 men
was recruited and marched for the Pacific Coast. At the
commencement of the Mexican war, the President considered
it desirable to march a body of reliable infantry to California
at as early a period as practicable, and the known hardihood
and habits of discipline of the Mormons were supposed pe
culiarly to it them for this service. As California was sup
posed also to be their ultimate destination, the loog march
might Cost them less than other citizens. They were accord
ingly invit d to furnish a battalion of volunteers early in the
mon hof July. '1 he call could hardly have been more in
conveniently timed. The young, and those who could best
have been spared, wore then away from the main body,
either with pioneer companies in the van, or, their faith un.
announced, seeking work and food about the northern settle
ments, to support them till the return of the season for com
mencing emigration. The force was therefore to be made up
from among lathers of families, and others whose presence
it was most desirable'>o retain. There were some, to, who
could not view the invitation without jealousy: they had twice
been persuaded by the state authorities of Illinois and Mis
souri, to give up their arms ou some special appeal fo their
patriotic confidence, and had then been left to the malice of
their enemies. And now they were asked, in rhe midst of
the Indian country, to surrender over five hundred of their
best n en for a war march of thousands of miles to California,
without the hope of return till after the conquest of that coun
try. Could they view such a proposition with favor? But
the feeling of country triumphed. The Union had never
wronged them ; and one of the ruling elders replied: “ You
shall have your battalion forthwith, if it has to be of a class of
our elders.” A central mass meeting for council, some har
angues at the more remotely scattered camps, an American
flag brought out from the storehouse of things rescued and
hoisted to the top of a tree-mast—and, in three days, the force
was reported mustered, and ready to march.
There was no sentimental affectation at their leave-taking.
The afternoon before was appropriated to a farewell ball;
and a more merry dancing-rout was never seen, though the
company went without refresh men's, and the ball-room was
of the mo§t primitive kind. It was the custom, whenever the
larger camps rested for a few days togeiher, to mike great
arbors, or bowers, of poles and branch and wattling, as places
of shelter for their meetings of devotion or conference. In
one of these, where the. ground had been trod firm and hard
by the feet of the worshippers, was gathered now the mirth
and beamy of the Mormcn Israel. If anything told the Mor
mons had been bred to otjier lives, it was the appearance of
the women as they assembled here. Before their flight, they
had sold their watches and trinkets as the most available
resource for raising ready money : and hence, like their part
ners, who wore waistcoats cut with useless watch-pockets,
they, although their ears were pierced and bore the loop
marks of rejected pendants, were without ear-iugs, finger
rings, chains or broaches. Except such ornaments, however,
they lacked nothing most becoming the attire of decorous
maidens. The neu ly darned white stocking, the clean wuite
petticoat, the artisticady dear-starched collar and chlmisetie,
the slightly laded (because too-well washed) lawn or gingham
gown, tl.-at fitted modishly to the waist of its pretty wearer—
these, if they spoke of poverty, spoke of a poverty that had
km wn its better days.
With the rest, attended the elders of the Church within call,
Jnclu'.ing nearly all the Chiefs of the High Council, with their
wives and children. They, the gravest and most trouble
worn,"seemed the most anxious of any to be first to throw off
the burden of heavy thoughts. Their leading oil - the daqce in
a great double cotillion, was the signal that bade the festivity
comm; nee. To the canto of debonnair violins, the cheer of
horns, th-jingle of sleigh-bells, and the jovial snoring of the
tamborine, they did dance. None of your minuets or other
mortuary processions of gentles in etiquette, light shoes and
pinching gloves, but, the spirited and scientific displays of our
venerat-d and merry grand-parents, who were not above fol
lowing the fiddle to the “Fox Chase Inn,” or “ Gardens of
Grey’3 Ferry.” French fours, Copenhagen jigs, Virginia '
reels, and the like forgotten figures, were executed with the ;
spirit of people too happy to be slow, or bashful or con- I
straim d. Light hearts, lithe figures and light feet had it their '
own waj, from an early hour till after the sun had dipped be
hind the sharp sky-line of the Omaha hills. Silence was then !
called, and a well-cultivated mezzo-soprano voice, belonging ,
to a young lady with fair face and dark eyes, gave, with qu.tr- j
tette accompaniment, a little song—a version of the text touch- i
ing to all earthly wanderers—
“ By the rivers of Babylon we sat down and wept;
We wept when we remembered Zion.” |
There was danger of some expression of feeling when the i
song was over, for it had begun to draw tears ; but, breaking I
the quiet with his hard voice, an elder asked the blessing of '
of Heaven on ail who, with purity of heart and brotherhood
of spirit, had mingled in that society; and then all dispersed,
hastening to cover from the falling dews—all, I remember,
but some splendid Indians, who, in cardinal scarlet blankets
and feathered leggings, had been making foreground figures
for the dancing rings, like those in Mr. West’s picture, the
Philadelphia Treaty, and staring their inability to comprehend
the wonderful performances. These loitered to the last, as if
unwilling to seek their abject homes.
The numbers and fine drill of the orchestra in service on
this occasion, was a matter of astonishment to the traveller.
The story was, that an eloquenj Mormon missionary hud con
verted its members in a tody at an English town, a strong
hold of the sect, and that they took up their trumpets, tam
bourines, drums, and hautboys together, and followed him to
When the refugees from Nauvoo were hastening to part
wlih their table-wave, jewelry, and almost every other frag
ment of metal wealth they possessed that was not iron, they ■
had never thought of giving up the instruments of this favor- ■
ite band ; and when the battalion was enlisted, though high i
inducements were offered seme of the performers to accom- i
pany it. they all refused. Their fortunes went with the Camp '
of the Tabernacle. They had led the farewell service in the '
Nauvoo Temple ; their office now was to guide the monster
chorus s and Sunday hymns ; and like the trumpets of silver
made o; a whole piece, “for the calling of the assembly and i
for the journeying of the camps,” to kuoll the paople into
chuicb. Some of their wind instruments were uncommonly
full and pure toned, and in that clear dry air could be heard
to a great distance. It had the strangest effect in theworll
to listen to their sweet music winding over the uninhabited
country, something in the style of a Moravian death-tune
blown at day-break, but altogether unique. It might be when i
y< u we»e hun ing a lord over the great Platte—the dreariest
of all rivers, perplexed among the sand-bars and shallows of
- shifting bed—th ns.ng wind would bring you the first i
famt thought of a melody ; and, as you listened, borne down ■
upon the gust that swept past you a cloud of dry sand, you |
recognized it—perhaps a home-loved theme of Henry Froch or i
Mendelssohn, —Mendelssohn Barthoidy away there in the w.l- I
The battalion gone, the hosts again moved on. The tents i
whic h had gathered on ihe hili summits, like white birds hesi- •
fating to venture on the long flight over the river, were struck I
one alter another, and >he dwellers in them, and their wagons i
and their cattie, Laiu ned down to cross it at a ierrv in the !
valley, which they made ply night and day. A little beyond ;
the landing the?, found their companions, and made their pre- I
paragons for the last and longest stage of their journey. It '
was a more serious matter to cross the mountains theu, than j
now that the thirst lor trie gold of California has made the re- ;
gion such literally trodden. Ihe experience, therefore, of the i
Mormon em grams was proportionally harder than that which ■
has become as familiar to our minds as household words, j
Under the direction, however, of t.ie*r captains of ten, fifty |
and a hundred, they perseveringly overcame all obstacles. j
One of the most striking features of the Mormon emigra- ■
ticn was the formation of the Tabernacle Camps and tempo- i
rary stakes or settlements, which renewed in the sleeping '
solitudes everywhere along the road the cheering signs of in
telligent and hopeful life. One, a description of which will i
answer for all, was situated upon the delta between the Ne- j
Iraska and Missouri, near the Little Butterfly River, on some j
finely rounded hills that encircled a favorite cool spring. On !
each of these a square was marked out, and the wagons as I
they arrived took their positions along its four sides, in double :
rows, so as to leave a roomy street or passage between them, i
The tents were disposed also in rows, at intervals between
the wagons. The cattle were folded in high fenced yards i
ou’s’de. The quadrangle Inside was left vacant for the sake !
cf ventilation, and the streets, covered in wkh leafy arbor =
work and kept scrupulously clean, forme! a shaded cloister i
walk. This was ite place of exercise for slowly recovering ;
Invalids, the day-home of the infants, and the evening prome
nade of all.
From the first formation of the camp, all' its inhab.tants '
we- e coDstanily and laboriously occupied. Many of them were
l io-'Jy educated mechanics, and seemed only to need a day’s ■
anticipated rest to engage them at the forge, loom, or turn- .
ing-la:he. upon some needed chance of work. Our traveller i
says; “A Mormon gun-smith is the inventor of the excellent i
repeating rifle, .hit loads by slides instead of cylinders; and '
one et the neatest finished tire-arms I have ever seen was of
: his kind, wrought from scraps of old iron, end inlaid with the !
ilver of a couple of half dollars, under a hot July sun, in a i
•oi where tae average height of ihe grass was above the i
- irkman's shoo der’s. Iha ve seen a cobbler, after the halt i
his party on the march, hunting along the river bank for a i
i-stone hi the twilighs, that he might finish a farmer’s boot- i
le by the camp-lire; and I have had a piece of cloth, the '
00l of which was sheared, and dyed, and spun, and woven '
u'ing a progress of over three hundred miles.”
Sou e two month.-, after the final expulsion, between Nauvoo
■nd the maui party, were over two thousand emigrant wagons
» besk es a large num -er of nondescript turn-outs, the motley
make-sbii sOf poverty, froth the unsuitably heavy cart that
lumbered on mysteriously with its sick driver hidden under
its counter; ane cover, to the crazy two-wheeled trundle, pall
ed along, it may be, by a little dry-dugged heifer, and rig Ted
up to drag some such light weight as a baby, a sack of meal,
or a pack of clothes ami bedding. A strong trait of the Mor
mons, however, was their kindness to their brute dependents,
and particularly to tht ir beasts of draught. A great part of
these pilgrims in the desert were made up of poor folks, wiio
had i.»d in destitution from Nauvoo, and been refused a rest
ing place by the people Many of course perished on
the way while those who reached the main body were utterly
exhausted and in the extremest destitution.
Besides the common duty of guiding and assisting these un
fortunates, the companions in ihe van uniied in providing a
i y . Il' r . l! " et t U , n 1,0, ' y of ‘■'•‘lcrauts. They laid out tor
’ . , wood through the Indian territory over four hun
dred leagues lu length, with substantial, well-built bridges, fit
for the passage cl heavy artillery, over all the streams, except
.few grea rivers, where they established permanent ferrlea.
The newest .nfiitMud bridglug l 0 lh „ 1>apll!oa Can 011 the
Ll.tle Butteitly Elver, was that of the Elkhorn, a tributary of
the n.tte, distant r. coup eof hours' ma-oh. Here, in what
seemed to be an w cd:short space m time, there rose the
seven great piers and abutments of a bridge. The nartv de
tailed to the task worked in the I,rolling tn, ht wXX , 0
their necks, as if engaged in the perpetration of some pointed
aid practical joke. The chief eport hy h, sporting along with
the logs, cu< from the overhanging timber up °the stream
guiding them till they reached their destination, and then
plunging them under water in the precise spot where they
were to be secured. This the laughing engineers would exe
cute. with the agility of happy diving ducks.
Here is a scene at one of the terries. Nearly opposite
Pull Point, a trading post of the American Fur Company and
a village of the Fottawatamies, a favorable crossing had been
gained by making a deep cut through the steep right bank.
Hert, without intermission, the flat-bottomed scows plied,
crowded with wagons and cows, sheep, children and furniture
of the emigrants, who, in waiting their turn, made the woods
around smoke wi h their crowding camp-fires. But no such
• good fortune as a gratuitous passage awaited the heavy cattle,
of which no less than 3u,u00 were at this time on their way
westward—these were made to earn it by swimming. A
heavy freshet had swollen the river to a width of something
like a mile and a half, and dashed past its fierce current, rush
ing. gurgling and eddying, as If thrown from a miU-racc Ils
aspect did not invite the oxen ;o their duty, aud the labor was
to force them to it. Crowded together in small groups they
were urged into the river by the clamorous crowd. Halting
and wavering, and trying in vain to return, the current would
begin to sweep them down the stream. At this juncture a
fearless youngster, climbing upon some brave bull in the front
rank, would urge him boldly forth into the stream. The rest
then surely followed ; a few moments saw them struggling in
mid-current; a few more, and they were safely landed on the
opposite shore. The driver's was the sought-after post of
honor; and sometimes when repeated failures had urged
them to emulation, the youths, in stepping from back to back
of the struggling monsters, or swimming in among their bat
tling hoofs, displayed feats of address and hardihood that
would have made Franconl’s or the Madrid bull-ring vibrate
with bravos of applause. But in the hours and hours of this
sport at the ferry, not an oath or the language of quarrel was
beard, nor did it provoke the least sign of ill-feeling.
After the sorrowful word was given out to halt and make
preparations for the winter, making hay became one of the
chief labors; and with every day-dawn, brigades of mowers
■would take up the march to their positions in chosen meadows
—a finer sight than a charge of cavalry, as they laid their
swarths, whole companies of scythes abreast. Before this
time, the manliest, as well as ihe most general daily labor,
was the herding of the cattle ; the only wealth of the Mor
mo»s, and more and more cherished by them with the in
creasing pastoral character of their lives. A camp could not
be pitched in any spot without soon exhausting the freshness
of the pasture around it; and it became an ever-recurring
task to guide the cattle, in unbroken droves, to the nearest
places where it was still fresh and fattening. Sometimes it
was necessary to go to distant ranges which were known as
feeding grounds of the buffalo. About these were sure to
prowl parties of thievish Indians; and each drove therefore
had its escort of mounted men and boys, who learned self-re
liance and heroism while on night-guard alone among the si
lent hills. But generally the cattle were driver from the camp
at the dawn of the morning, and brought back t ousands to
gether in the evening, to be picketed in the great corral or
enclosure, where beeves, bulls, cows and oxen, with the hor
ses, mules, hogs, calves, sheep and hunun beings, could all
look together upon the red watch-fires, with the feeling of se
curity, when aroused by the Indian stampede, or the bowl
ings of the prairie wolves at moonrise-
When they set about building tlwir winter houses, the
Mormons went into considerable timbering operations, and
performed desperate feats of carpentery. They did not come,
ornamental gentlemen or raw apprentices, to extemporise
new versions of Robinson Crusoe. It was a comfort to notice
the readiness with which they turned their hands to woodcraft,
some of them, who had been bred carpenters, wheelwrights, or
boat builders, quite outdoing the most notable voyageurs in
the use of the axe. One of /hese would fell a tree, strip off
its bark, cut and split up the trunk in piles of plank, scantling
or shingles—make posts, and pins, and pales,—everything
wanted, almost, of the branches; and treat his toil, from first
to last, with more sportive flourishes than a schoolboy whitt
ling his shingles.
Inside the camp, tie chief labors were assigned to the
women. From the moment when, afer the halt, the lines had
been laid, the spring wells dug out, and the ovens and fire
places built—though the men assumed to set the guards and
enforce the regulations of police—the empire of the tented
town was with tie better sex. They were the chief comforters
of the severest sufferers, the kind nurses who gave them in
their sickness those dear attentions with which pauperism is
hardly poor,and which the greatest wealth often fails to buy.
And they vere a nation of wonderful managers. They could
hardly bellied housewives in etymological strictness, but it
was plain they had once been such, and most distinguished
ones. Their art availed them in their changed state of affairs.
With almost their entire culinary material limited to their
cows, some store of meal or flour, and a very few condiments,
they brought their thousand-and-one receipts into play with a
success that outdid for their families the miracle of the
Hebrew widow’s cruise. They learned to make butter on a
inarch, by the dashing of a wagon, and so nicely to calcu
late the working of corn in the jolting heats, that as soon
after a halt as an oven could be dug in the hill-side and heated,
their well-kneaded loaf was ready for baking, and produced
good leavened bread for supper. No doubt the appetizing
zest their humble lore succeeded in imparting to diet, which
was both simple and meagre, availed materially for the health
as well as the comfort of the people.
But the first duty of the Mormon women was, through all
change of place and fortune, to keep alive the altar fire of
home. Whatever their manifold labors for the day, it was
their effort to complete them against the sacred hour of
evening fall. For by that time all the outworkers, scouts,
ferrymen and bridgemen, roadmakers, herdsmen and hay
makers, had finished their task and come into their rest. And
before the last smoke of the supper fire curled up reddening
in the glow of sunset, a hundred chimes of cat-le bells an
nounced their looked-for approach across the open hills, and
the women went out to meet them at the camp gates, and,
with their children in their laps, sat by them at the cherished
family meal, aud talked over the events of the well-spent
But every day closed, as every day began, with an invoca
tion of the divine favor, without which, indeed, no Mormon
seemed to dare to lay him down to rest. With the first shining
of the stars, laughter and loud talking hushed, the neighbor
went his way; you heard the last hymn sung, and then the
thousand-voiced murmur of prayer was heard like babbling
water falling down the hills.
There was no austerity, however, about the religion of the
Mormons. Their fasting and penance, it is no jest to say,
was altogether involuntary. They made no merit of that.
They kept the Sabbath with considerable strictness; they were
too close copyists of the wanderers of Israel, in other res
pects, not to have learned, like them, the value of this most
admirable of the Egypto-Mosaic institutions. But the rest of
the week, their religion was independent of ritual observance.
They had that sort of strong-stomached faith that is altogether
too strongly felt to be dependent on intellectual ingenuity or
careful caution of the ridiculous. It mixed itself up fear
lessly with the common transactions of their every day life,
and only to give them liveliness and color.
During a time of great sickness and suffering, the Mormons
took the young and hopeful side of things, turning their dis
comforts and discouraging mishaps into fun. They could
make sport and frolic of their trials, and often turn right
sharp suffering into right round laughter against themselves.
The “ Mieety Bottoms,” as they are termed, are extremely
unhealthy in the summer season. The rich soil which is to a
depth far beyond the reach of the plough as fat as the earth
of kitchen garden or compost heap, is annually the forced bed
of a vegetation as rank as that of the tropics. To render its
fatal fertility the greater, it is everywhere freely watered by
springs and creeks and larger streams, that flow into it from
both sides. In the season of drought, when the sun enters
Virgo, these dry down till they run impure as open sewers,
exposing to the day foul broad flats, mere quagmires of black
dirt, stretching along for miles unvaried, except by the limbs
of ha;f-buried carrion tree trunks, or by occasional yellow
pools of what the children ct.ll frog spawn, all togeiher
steaming up thick vapors redolent of the savor of death.
In the latter part of July, thirty-seven per cent, of the in
habitants in the camp near the Elkhorn were down with fe
ver and a sort of strange scorbutic disease, frequently fatal,
which they named the black canker. The camps farther east
were many of them much worse fated. The Mormons were
also scourged severely with the plague. The exceeding mor
tality among some of them was no doubt in the main attribu
table to the low state to which their systems had been brought
by long continued endurance of want and hardship. It is to
be remembered also that they were the first turners up of the
prairie sod. and that this of itself made them liable to the
sickness of new countries. It was where the»e agricultural
operations had been most considerable, and in situations on
the left bank of the river, where the. prevalent southern
winds wafted to them the miasmata of its shores that disease
was most rife. In some of these camps, the fever raged to
such an extent, that hardly any escaped it. They let their
cows go unmilked. They wanted for voices to raise the
psalm of Sundays. The few who were able to keep their
feet went about among the tents and wagons with food and
water, like nurses through the wards of an infirmary. At
one time grave-digging got behind hand, burials were slow,
and you might see women sit in the open tents keeping the
flies off' from their dead children some time after decomposi
tion had set in.
Earlier In the season, while going westward with the inten
tion of passing the Rocky Mountains that summer, Mr. Kane
had opened, with the assistance of Mormon spades and shov
els, a large mound, on a commanding elevation, the tomb of a
■warrior ol the ancient race ; and, continuing on his way, had
left a deep trench excavated entirely through it. Returning,
fever-struck, he found the camp planted close by this spot. It
was just forming as he arrived; the first having but a day or
two belore halted into place. His first airing upon his conva
lescence took him to the mound, which, probably co save dig
ging, had been re-adapted to its original purpose. In this
brief interval they had filled the trench with bodies and far
rowed the ground around it with graves like the plowing of
a field.
The lengthened sojourn of the Mormons in this insalubrious
region was imposed upon them by circumstances to which we
will revert. Though the season was late when they first
crossed the Missouri, some of them moved forward with great
hopefulness,full of the notion of viewing and choosing their
new homes that year. But the van had only reached Grand
Island and the Pawnee villages, when they were overtaken
by more ill news from Nauvoo. Before the summer closed,
their enemies set upon the last remnant of those who were
left behind in Illinois. They were a few lingerers who could
not be persuaded but there yet might be time for them to
gather up their worldly goods before removing, and some
weakly mothers and their infants, a few delicate young girls,
and many cripples and bereaved and sick people. These
had remained under shelter, according to the Mormon state
ment, at least, by virtue of an express covenant in their be
half. If there was such a covenant, it was broken. A vin
dictive war was waged upon them, from which the weakest
fled in scattered bodies, leaving the regt to make a reluctant
and almost ludicrously unavailing defence, till the seventeenth
day of September, when one thousand sjx hundred and twenty
five troops entered Nauvoo and drove all forth who had not
retreated before that time. Like the wounded birds of a flock
fired into towards nightfall they came straggling on with fal
tering steps, many of them without bag or baggage, beast or
barrow. Mr. Kane mentions an orphan boy, for insttyice,
who came on by himse’f at this time on foot, starting with no
oiber provision than his trowsers’ pocket full of biscuit given
him from a steamboat on the Mississippi. On they came, all
asking shelter or burial, - and forcing a fresh repartition of
the already divided rations of their friends. It was plain
now that every energy must be taxed to prevent the entire
expedition from perishing. Further emigration for the time
was out of the question, and the whole people prepared them
selves for encountering another winter on the prairie. Hap
pily for the main body, they found themselves at this juncture
among Indians who were amicably disposed. The lands on
both sides of the Missouri, in particular, were owned by the
Pottawatamies and Omahas, two tribes whom unjust treat
ment, by the United States government, had the effect of ren
dering most auspiciously hospitable to strangers whom they
regarded as persecuted like themselves. They were pleased
with the Mormons. They would have been pleased with any
whites who would not cheat them, nor sell them whisky, nor
whip them for their poor gipsy habits, nor bear themselves
indecently toward their women, many of whom among the
Pottawatamies, especially those of nearly unmixed French
descent, are singularly comely, and some of them educated.
But all Indians have something like a sentiment of rev
erence for the insane, and admire those who sacrifice,
without apparent motive, their worldly welfare to the tri- ,
umph ct an idea. They understand the meaning of what j
they term a great vow, and ihink it the duty of the right
minded to lighten the votary’s penance under it. To this feel
ing they united the sympathy of fellow-sufferers, for those
who could talk to them of their own Illinois, and tell the story
how from it they also had been ruthlessly expelled.
Ibe pauper Omahas were ready to solicit as a favor the
residence of white protectors among them. The Mormons
harvested and stored away for them their crops of maize; :
with all their own poverty, they spared them food enough be
sides, from time to time to save them from absolutely starv
ing; and their entrenched camp to the north of the Omaha
villages served as a sort of breakwater between them and
the destroying rush of the Sioux. This was-the head-quarters
of the Mormon camps of Israel. The miles of rich prairie,
enclosed and sowed with grain they could continue to spare,
and ihe Louses, stacks, and the cattle shelters had the seeming
of an entire country, with its people and improvements trans
planted there unbroken. On a pretty plateau, overlooking i
the river, they built more than seven hundred houses in a ;
single town, neatly laid out with highways and byways, and
fortified with breastwork, stockade, and blockhouses. It had,
100, its place of worship, “Tabernacle of the Congregation,”
and various large workshopsand mills, and factories pro
vided with water-power. They had no camp or settlement of
equal size in the I’oitawatomic country. There was less to
apprehend here from Indian invasion, and the people scat
tered themselves, therefore, along the rivers and streams, and
in the timber groves, yherever they found inviting localities
for farming operations. In this way many of them ac
quired what have since proved to be valuable pre-emption
In this region the Mormons sustained themselves through
the winter of 1846-7. It was the severest of the tilata. This
winter was the turning point of the Mormon fortunes. Those
wio lived through it, were spared to witness the gradual re
turn of better times, and they afterwards likened it to the
passing of a dreary night, from which they watched the com
ing of a steadily brightening day.
Before the grass growth of 1847, a body of one hundred
and forty-three picked men. with seventy wagons drawn by
their best horses, left the Omaha quarters under the command
of the members of the High Council, who had wintered there.
They carried with them little but seed and farming imple- ;
menis, their aim being to plant spring crops at the ultimate |
destination. They i elied on their rifles to give them food, but ;
rarely left their road in search of gamu. They made long ;
daily marches, and moved with as much rapidity as possible. ,
Against the season when ordinary emigration passes the '
Missouri, they were already through the South Pass, and a ■
couple <1 short days’ travel beyond it. entered upon the more
arduous portion of their journey. It lay in earnest through ■
the Rocky Mountains. They turned Fremont’s Peak, Long’s
Peek, the Twins, and otlier king summits, but bad to force 1
their way over other rugged mountains of the Utah range, :
someiimes following the stony bed of torrents; the head- ■
waicis ot some of the mightiest rivers of our continent, and :
sometimes literally culling their road through heavy and rag- ,
ged timber. They arrived at the grand basin of the Great 1
ba.t l.nke, much exhausted, but without losing a man, and in.
time to piant for a partial autumnal harvest.
Another party started after these pioneers, from the Oma
ha winter quarters, in the summer. They had live handred
ar d sixty-six wagons, and carried large quantities of grain,
which tl.ey were able to put in the ground before it froze.
The season, also, these were joined by a part of the
battalion and other members of the church who came east. ■
ward from California and the Sandwich Islands. Together |
they fortified themselves strongly with sun-brick wall and '
blockhouses, and Jiving safely through the winter, were able
totendertps that yielded ample provisions for the ensuing
year. In 1848 nearly all Ihe remaining members of tha
church left tl.e Missouri country in a succession of powerful
bands, invigorated and - enriched by their abundant harvests
there, aud that year saw fully established the Common
wealth of the new Covenant,- the future state of Deseret.
Deseret is emphatically a new country—new in its own
characteristic features, never still in its bringing together ,
witkin its limite the most inconvenient peculiarities of other
countries. One cannot aptly compare it with any. Descend
from the mountains, where you have the scenery and climate '
oi Switzerland, io seek ihe sky of your choice among the
many climates of Italy, and you may find welling out of the
same hills the freezing springs of Mexico and the hot springs
ot Iceland, Loth together cam sing their way to the Ealt Sea of
Palestine in the plain below. The pages of Malte Brun pro
vide a less truthful parallel to it than those which describe the
happy valley of Rassclas, or the continent of Balnlbarbi.
Cxily two events have occurred to menace serlouslv the '
establishment at Deseret. The first threatened to destroy
its crops, the other to break it up altogether.
The shores of the Salt Lake are infested by a sort of in
sect pest which claims a vile resemblance to the locust af
the Syrian Dead Sea. 'Wingless, dumpy, black, swollen
headed, with bulging eyes anc ears .like goggles, mourned i
upon tegs oi steel wire and clock-spring, and with a general '
personal appearance that justified the Mormons in comparing '
him to a cross of a spider on the buffalo, the Deseret cricket '
comes down from tbe mountains at a certain season of the ;
year, in toracious and desolating myriads. It was just at '
this season that the first crops of the new settlers were in
xthe lull glory of their youthful green. The assailants could 1
not be repulsed. The Mormons, after their fashion, prayed
um./J'p!. 11 ,’- . and fougLt ai!d prayed to no purpose. The
mowed their way even with the ground,
leading it as it touched with an acid or burned by fire.

Mormons thought 'hey were new enemies to plague them,
but when they found them hostile only to the locust tb-y
were careful not fo molest them in their friendly ollice and '
to this end declared a heavy line against all who’ shou'd kill ■
or annoy them with fire arms. The gulls soon grew to be '
tame as the poultry, and the delighted tittle children called
them their pigeons. They disappeared every evening be
yond the Lake, but returning with sunrise, continued their
welcome visiliugs till the crickets were all exterminates. ,
Th;s curious incident recurred the following year, with |
this variation, that in 1849 the gulls came earlier and saved
lhe wheat crops from all harm whatever.
A severer trial than the visit of the cricket-locust threat
ened Dereret in the discovery of the gold of California. The
disbanded soldiers came to the valley; they showed their
pc or companions pieces of the yellow treasure they had
gained, and the cry was raised, “To California! to the Gold
of Dphir our brethren have discovered! To California!”
Some have, perhaps, jcome across the half Ironic instruc
tion of the heads of the church to the fai’hful outside the
“ine true use of gold is for paving streets, covering

tbe unbroken record of the most wonderful prosperity They

land, and " behold, Il is a good land, and Urge. anfi SowdM

voo, the forge smokes and the anvil rings, and whirlin®
wheels go round; again has returned the merry sport of
childhood, and the evening quiet of old age, and again dear
house-pet flowers bloom in garden plots around hapny
homes. 17
It is to these homes, in the heart of our American Alps
like the holy people of the grand St. Bernard, they hold out
their wecome to the passing traveler. Some may have seen
in the St. Louis papers the repeated votes of thanks to them
of companies of emigrants to California. These are often
reduced to great straits, after passing Laramie, and turn
aside to seek the Salt Lake colony, in pitiable flights of fatigue
■ and destitution. The road, after leaving the Oregon trace
is one of Increasing difficulty; and when the last mountain
j has been crossed, passes along the bo'tom of a deep canon,
whose scenery is of an almost terrific gloom. It is a detile
1 that it is to be hoped, no Mormon Martin Hofer, of this Wes
tern Tyrol, will be called to consecrate to liberty with blood.
At every turn, the overhanging cliffs threaten to break down
upon the little torrent river, that has worn its way at their
base. Indeed, the .narrow ravine is so serrated by this
stream, that the road crosses it from one side to ihe other,
something like forty times within the last five miles. At the
end of the ravine, the emigrant comes abruptly out of the
dark pass, into the lighted valley, on an even bench or ter
race of its upper table land, No wonder if he loves his self
conttrell here. A ravishing panoramic landscape opens out
below him, blue and green, and gold and pearl—a great sea,
with hilly islands, rivers, a lake, and broad sheets of grassy
plain, all set as in a silver-chased cup, within mountains
whose peaks of perpetual snow are burnished by a dazzling
sun. It is less these, however, than the foreground of old
country farms, with their stacks, aud thatchings, and stock,
and the central city, smoking from its chknnies, and swarming
with workingAnbabitants, that tries the men of fatigue-bro
ken nerves. The “ Californey’s” scream, they sing, they
give three cheers, and co not count them; a few have pray
ed, more swear, some fall on their faces and cry outright.—
Several hundred emigrants in more or less distress, receive
gratuitous assistance every year.
Letters from California in 1849 wore eloquent in describing
the anniversary of the pioneers arriving in the valley. It
was the 24th of July, and they have ordained that that day
shall be commemorated in future, like our 21st of December,
as their foretifather’s day. The great band was there that had
helped their humble hymns through all the wanderings of the
wilderness. Through the many trying marches of 1845,
through the fierce, winter ordeal that followed, and the long
journey after, over plain and mountain, it had gone unbroken
without the loss of any of its members. As they set out from
England, and as they set out from Illinois, so they all came
into the valley together, and together sounded the first glad
notes of triumph when the Salt Lake City was founded. It
was then right to lead the psalm of praise. Anthem, song
and dance, all the innocent and thankful frolic of the day
owed them its chief zest. “ They never were in finer key.”
Mr. Kane sums up his estimate of lhe character of the
Mormons, as fallows: —
“ I have spoken to you of a people whose industry had
made them rich, and gathered around them all the comforts,
and many of the luxuries of refined life ; expelled bylawless
force into the wilderness ; seeking an untried home far away
from the scenes which their previous life had endeared to
them; moving onward, destitute, heatrt-sickened, and sinking
with disease; bearing along with them their wives and chil
dren, the aged, and the poor, and the decrepid; renewing
daily on - their march the offices of devotion, the ties of family
and friendship, and charity; sharing necessities and braving
dangers together; cheerful in the midst of want and trial,
and persevering until they triumphed. I have told, or tried
to tell, you of men who, when menaced by famine, and in the
midst of pestilence, with every energy taxed by the urgency
of the hour, were building roads and bridges, laying out vil
lages and planting cornfields, for the stranger whu might
come after them ; their kinsmen only by a common humanity,
and peradventurc a common suffering—of men who have re
newed their prosperity in the homes they have founded in the
desert, and who, in their new-built city, walled round by
mountains like a fortress, are extending pious hospitalities to
the destitute emigrants from our frontier lines—of men who,
far removed from the restraints of law, obeyed it from choice,
or found in the recesses of their religion something not incon
sistent with human laws, but far more controlling; and who
are now soliciting from the government of the United States,
not indemnity—for the appeal would be hopeless, and they
know it—not protection, for they now have no need of it—but
that identity of political institu ions, and that community of
laws with the rest of us, which was confessedly their birth
right when they were driven beyond our borders.
“ I said I would give you the opinion I bad formed of the
Mormons. You may deduce it for yourselves from these
facts. But I will add. that I have not yet heard a single
charge against them as a eommunity, against their habitual
purity of life, their integrity of dealing, their toleration of re
ligious differences and opinions, their regard for the laws, or
their devotion to the constitutional government under which
we live, that I do not from my own observation, or the testi
mony of others, know to be unfounded.”

A Family of Fiends.—Under this head the
Lewisburgh (Greenbrier) Era of the 19th inst. contains the
following notice of ihe fiendjsh and murderous doings of a
family of Grahams residing in that part of Virginia, some
particulars of which we have heretofore published : In Mon
roe County, Virginia, on the GreenbriAr river, and about four
teen miles below Lewisburgh, lives a man named Joseph
Graham. He has three or four grown up sons living beneath
his roof, and (until the 27’h uit.) one unmarried daughter, Miss
Jane Graham, aged about 45. This daughter had an illegiti
mate daughter by a man who recently died in Missouri, leav
ing the sum of $3,000 to this child, who Is now married to a.
Mr. Miller, of Nicholas county. Quarrels of the most violent
character are represented to have been commoa in this family.
A recent quarrel had taken place, and one of the brothers
sought io injure the character of his sister by leaving anony
mous and defamatory letters upon the highway, and also by
writing to Mr. Miller of Nicholas, giving the mother of his
wife a character as “black as hell and rotten as carrion,” and
asserting that her daughter (Mrs. Miller) was no better. With
out any knowledge of this, Miss Jane Graham a tew weeks
ago went to Nicholas county to visit her daughter—found that
she and her husband had separated, were living apart, and
icarncd that the cause was the anonymous letter which Miller
had received. Miss Graham, full of the violence and deter
mination which characterized her, immediately returned home.
A violent quarrel ensued between her and the brother who
wrote the letter, into which the old man and woman were
drawn (they siding with tbe son)—the upshot of which was
the forcible ejectment of Miss Graham from the house. She
went to the house of a bro:her-in-law—one Mr. Nolan, who
lives hard by—who gave her shelter and protection. On the
night of the 27ih of July, Nolan and wife went to visit a
neighbor, leaving Miss Graham to take care of the children.
After they were gone—(about 9 o’clock, as the children of No
lan say, one or two of whom are competent witnesses)—Miss
Graham dressed herself and went out. She took a bonnet
belonging to her niece, and a pafr of stockings belonging
either to her niece or to her sister. (Remember this.) Nolan
and wife soon returned, end were surprised to find Miss Gra
ham gone. At a little past 10 o’clock they were aroused by
the cry of fire, caused by the burning of the barn of Mr. Jo
seph Graham. From her well known vindictive temper, it
was at once suspected that she burnt the barn, and hence her
absence was not noted as anything remarkable after such an
act. The Grahams made no effort to learn anything of the
absent member of their family—never even suggested pursuit
or revenge for the injury done them. Their conduct in thi
respect added strength to the rumor that was beginning to
find tongues—a rumor charging the family with putting Miss
Graham “out of the way.” This rumor grew so strong that
on the 4th Inst, a party of neighbors gathered togeiher for the
purpose of searching for the body of the absent woman. They
went to the house of Graham to ask permission to search for
the body on the premises; his answer was, “ Go look in the
ashes of the barn—if her bones ain’t there, they are in heli.”
The party went forward on their search. A few rods below
the ruins of the barn they found indications of a scuffle —then
01, a running fight—then, again, of a more severe scuffle, in
which a person appeared to have been thrown down. The
ground svas imprinted thickly with footmarks of human beings
and oi a dog. From this place they detected such signs as
indicated the drawing of a human body along the ground to
wards a creek. This trail they followed to the creek, where
it was lost; but on the other side they re-discovered it. Here
dark stains, which appeared to be of blood, covered over with
fresh ashes, were occasionally detected. This trail was fol
lowed with tolerable ease until ihey reached the bank of
another creek or brooklet beyond. Here there were suzh
appearances as induced the searching party to think the
body, before dragged, had' been rested a moment and then
sboulderi d. The print of a person’s knees and the toes of
two booted feet were seen plainly imprinted in the soft
earth exactly as they would have been had a person got
down upon his knees. From this point blood was occasion
ally detected on the leaves two or three feet from the
ground adding fresh conviction to the suspicions of the
. party that the body had been shouldered. Ashes were still
occasionally seen to be scattered along the path. But about
half a dozen rods from the place where the body was sao
posed to have been shouldered all traces of the trail were lost.
One of the party looking in the direction of the gun, saw art
unusual number of blue or carrion flies flying about. He
tcok ir as an indication, and by using a switch succeeded in
establishing a line of buzzing tiles toward a blown-down tree,
below, on the hauk of the cr ek. The instinct of flics was su
perior to that of man, and enabled them to detect signs that
might have otherwise escaped them. Coming to the tree, they
found footsteps leading into the water, aud by going into the
water and following down so as to get a view Into the thick
top of the tree and surrounding hedge, they discovered the
dead bedy of Miss Jane Graham. The body was extricated
from the bushes after much difficulty. It was considerably
putrescent. The dress she wore had been taken off - , aud lay
beside her, having tbe appearance of having been washed
and thrown up with the body without being wrung. Some
si2ns of blood were still detected upon it, and it was much
tern as by a dog. Her shoes were also taken off and thrown
up after the body, as was also the bonnet before spoken of.
The stockings before themioned were upon her feet. There
w ere signs of violence about the neck, as though the body
had been dragged by a rope. A rope about eight feet long
was afterward found near the place of concealment. Some
signs of her having been worried by a dog were also upon
her person, but the blood is supposed to have come from her
nose and mouth. The family of Grahams showed no signs of
favor or affection for the murdered, and looked with an eye
that boded no good upon the searchers, whom they deemed
meddling wiih a matter that was “ none of iheir business.”
An inquest was held upon the body last Monday, 7th last.
The evidence then given on the part of the searching party
was in accordance with ihe above recital. One witness spoke
ot being on the ground early next morning/and saw a large
negro who belongs to the family, coming from the direction
where the body was found with a bucket on- his arm; made
him return to search for Hacks of the incendiary; saw where
someone (supposed to be the negro) had scattered ashes
along, but saw noihing then of the body. After hearing all
the evidence, ihe jury came to ihe conclusion that Miss Jane
Grahum fired the barn ; that in doing so she roused the fierce
dog belonging to the family; that tbe dog followed her, and
that some of the family pursued in the same direction ; tliat
some of them came up with her where the first indications of
a scuffle occurred ; that she then escaped, but was overtaken
v. here the indications of a second scuffle were fouud, and there
murdered. Ihe jury, we understand, were unanimously
of a conviction that this was the manner of her death ; yet
(will it be believed in the land of chivalry and in the nine
teenth century ‘.) they brought in a verdict on paper that she
“ came to her death by some unknown means I” One of the
jury, whom a friend of ours conversed with, said they dared
do nothing more—the Grahams were such a desperate set
that the whole neighborhood feared them. On the morning
after the murder oue of the Grahams and the negro man be
fore spoken of, early began to build a hay-stack near ihe
house, and all the bustle, inquiry about the premises did not
a moment delay ibeir work until It was done. The circum
stance has given rise to a suspicion that there is something
connected therewith, and a determination has been expressed
to have the hay removed. If anything more of this affair
transpires, our readers shall hear the particulars.
The Case of Conscience.—Further Par
ticulars.—The Philadelphia Ledger, 16th inst. says: In Sat
urday’s Leager we gave an account of the arrival at this port
of tbe bark Aaron J. Harvey, with a German named John
M uller on board, who had confessed at Port-au-Prince to the
kiiiii.g of a man in Burlington County, New Jersey. On
Saturday morning, G. S. Cameron, Esq., District Attorney of
Burlington Coumy, arrived iu this city, and immediately had
an interview with the prisoner. During this interview,
Muller made the following statements: In February last he
was at work at wood chopping at a place called Quaker
Bridge, ia Washington Township, Burlington County. His
employer was Squire Sooy. It seems that there was a Ger
man living in the neighborhood, named Gotleib Mulhelser.
who treated his wife very badly. She bad left h?r husband
on one or two occasions, but the latter had forced her to re
turn and again live with him. Her case excited the commis
seraiion of the prisoner and a fellow-workman named John
Meyer, and the two agreed to give the woman some money
to assist her in getting away from her husband. The woman
soon after went away In a stage, and the prisoner and Meyer
lived together in a chanty. It W as not long before Mull
heiser suspected their agency in the disappearance of his
wile. The husband went to their cabin, broke opentheir
door, aud demanded his wife. A squabble took place be
tween the parties and the two friends were more than a
match for the infuriated man. This fight was not attended
with any serious results. Several other affrays, growing out
of the same cause, occurred at subsequent periods. Finally
•one day some'time sfterward, Muller and Mullhelser met at
a cabin kept as a store by Squire Sooy, the old quarrel was
revived, and Mulhelser struck the prisoner over the head
with a small stick. The blow was not a serious one. The
parties clenched, and the prisoner struck Ills adversary
several severe blows about the temple with his fist. Muil
heiser fell and appeared to be'dying, when Mulier became
frightened, went to his own cabin, got his clothes and money,
and eloped to New York, from whence he sailed to London.
There no person present at the time of the final right.
In London the prisoner met a man named Chas. Brown,
whom be had known in Burlington County. Brown told hltn
that Mullheiser was found dead—that Meyer had been arrest- .
cd on a charge cf murdering him, and that he was then in
prison. From London the prisoner went to Port-au-Prince,
and while there he suffered great anguish of mind at the re
flection that his friend was Imprisoned ter an offence of which
he was entirely innocent. Muller accordingly determined to
make a confession, which be put in execution, aud requested
the American Consul to send him to the United States for ,
trial. He is but 23 years of age, and says he first came to
this country about three years ago, and that he worked for
Squire Sooy a year before the fatal event. Mr. Cameron
says be never heard of such a murder as that described, aud
he is under the, impression that Mullheiser must have recov
cied after Muiler fled. He says, however, tliat such a cir
cumstance might have occurred in ihe pines without the
ma’ter coming to his knowledge. Th© statement of me
prisoner in regard to localities and to names ot persons ia
the neighborhood in which lhe affair is described as having
occurred, was perfectly conect. It is certainly a very singu
lar affair, and the appearance of Muller bears evidence, of
of the mental anguish he has suffered. It would be a gra’.i
iying circumstance to discover that his supposed victim had
recovered, and that the seif-accused murderer was, in fact
guilty of no crime. The prisoner is very ill of rheumatism.
He has been placed in the Hospitaf department of the Coun
ty Prison lor medical aitendeuce, and to await the action of
lhe authorities of New Jersey. Muller arrived at Port-au-
Frliice in a Russian vessel, but during the voyage from Lon
don he had been so troubled in mind by the thought that an
inncctnt man should be punished tor his crime, as to be very
sick. He was senton shore to the hospital, but managed io
escape, and flying to the woods, remained concealed, subsist
ing on mangoes and other fruits ter two weeks, when, finding
that the Russian ship in which he arrived had departed, he
rtiurned to the port, aud there gave himself up to the Ameri
can Consul. Mulier is in a very low condition from the effects
oi typhoid fever, audit is extremely doubtful whether he will
survive to'stand bis trial, if it turns out that his supposition
of guilt be correct.
Strange Life of a Murderer.—A writer
in the Thomasville litatdeman gives the following singular bi
ography ol James Hightower, recently consicted ol man
slaughter in that county. Three years in dungeon, it seems,
is noihing to what he has endured. About twenty one years
ago a young lady of this section of country, belonging to a re
spectable family, became the victim of a vile seducer; the
iruit was a boy, who 13 the subject of our narrative. His mo
ther, as is the case usually with those of her sex who are un
fortunate, married a man of low breeding, aud iu adverse
circumstancts, consequently her son was destined to receive
but a limited share of education or moral training. At a ten
d< r age hie character was peculiar, and in some respects very
extraordinary. When only seven ytjars old, he was attending
a sugar cam-, mill; by some means, his left arm and hand were
crusted, by which accident, he forever lost the use of h’.s hand.
At the age of ten he was bitten by a rattlesnake; being nearly
alone on the place, he had to call to his aid all the presence
of mind he was master of. Fortunately, he used the prope
antidote, and thereby saved his life. In the short space of a
few months he was again bitten by one of the same specie,
oi reptilts; by pursuing the same course as he
was again rescued from the jaws of death. Between the age
of twelve and fourteen, he made several attempts to take thi
life of his step-father, which shows that he would not be im
posed on. About that age, he also snapped, several times, a
loaded musket at a neighbor. When fourteen years oldf he
was knocked down by lightning, and did not recover for some
time. At the age of sixteen, he was attacked, while hunting
in tbe woods, by a very large pa-rther. The panther soon
tore him down—he exhibited great presence of mind by feign
ing dvaih. The panther then carried him into the swamp,
covered him up with sticks and grass, after which he took his
leave in search oi more prey. Our hero, after the panther’s
departure, arose and made his escape* home. He was badly
torn—two of Lis jaw teeth were bitten out, and many wounds
w ere inflicted. But he was not thus te die, for he soon recov
er ed, and very soon after his recovery, gave his step father a
severe whipping, and left him. Excepting another slight
shock by lightning, his path was smooth until nineteen, when
he became enamored of a young lady ; though figuring in a
higher sphere, his superior in intellect and family, yet she
was smirten by the boy of misfortune, and resolved to marry
him, uotwiihstanding the opposition of her relatives, who made
severe threats against our hero. But what cared he, who had
successfully battled against rattlesnakes, panthers, and even
the high power of heaven, for the threats of man. Nothing
daunted, lie continued to urge his claims, after finding all his
efforts or a compromise unavailing, he commenced a deter
mined course. He procured his license, placed a magistrate
at a conspicuous point in ihe woods, and proceeded himself on
loot to the house that sheltered her whom he loved—secretly
forced the door of her chamber, and conducted her about live
miles through the woods, to the place of rendezvous. Before
arriving at the place upon which the hymenia! altar had been
temporarily erected, illuminated by tHe blaze of lightwood
knots and the pale rays of the moon alone, our hero fell into
his former path of bad luck, for he was bitten by a mocason
snake; but he was too well used to snake -bites le suffer that
occurrence to retard his progress at such a momentous crisis,
and like a brave aud undaunted boy, pursued Ids course, and
in accordance with his anticipations, was • lawfully married
about 12 or 1 o’clock at night. His mocason bite did not long
keep him in bed, for he then possessed a nurse of unceasing
attention After his final recovery, he carried his wife to the
home w hich he had provided for her, hoping that bls cup of
misfortune was then full, and that he would then enjoy that
bliss attending a married life. But he was not destined long
to enjoy that repose which he so much sought. He soon be
came entangled in a quarrel, with one Mr. Wheeler; the re
sult was—Wheeler was killed, and our hero, after a regular
trial in a court of justice, was convicted of manslaughter, and
now at the age of twenty, has gone, leaving his wife, his an
ticipated babe, and h’.s sweet home, to the penitentiary, there
to be incarcerated within its dismal walls for the space of
three years, which to him must seem long, long. Who can
contemplate his past .life, and not say, surely he is the child
of misfortune. Have his misfortunes ended ? Alas 1 who
can tell 1 That fpct is yet concealed by the dark curtains of
Arrest of Craig, the Forger of the Land
Warrants. —Our readers will remember that, some months
since, Toliver Uralg forged certain land warrants, was arrest,
ed, and after a preliminary examination before Magistrate
Bell he was committed to jail for a final trial. In a few days
after his commitment he took a dose of arsenic, with a view
of putting an end to his existence. By close medical atten
tion he ade well, and was admitted to bail in the sum
of $3,000. Falling to appear at Court when his case was
called, his bonds were forfeited. A few days since informa
tion was received that Craig had been arrested in Monmouth,
Illinois, and on Friday eve; ing last the officers, with Craig in
custody, arrived in this city, and lodged Mr. C. in jail to a wait
his final trial. The following are the circumstances of his
arrest: It appears that, some three months since, one Hart
man Horne (w ho, it will be remembereed, was Craig’3 secu
rity in this city,) moved to Monmouth, Illinois, and engaged
strongly in lana speculations. A few weeks since a letter
was received by the pestmasier at that place, stating that
Horne was engaged with a band, of whom Craig was the
chief, m forging land warrants, and locating them on unen
tered sections of land in Illinois. Horne was immediately
arrested, and on him were found letters from Toliver Craig,
aiias William Keenan, alias J. Nuilison, implicating him as
the grand head. Determining to ferret the affair to the bot
tom, the investigation was entrusted to Mr. H. M. Boggess oi
Monmouth, with luil powers to act in the matter, and bring
Craig to justice. The letters from Craig were postmarked
Rochester, N. Y., and thither Boggess proceeded, having first
stopped all communication to Craig, cither in his proper or
assumed names. In the letter of the latest date Craig advised
Horne to write to him under the name of Wm. H. Hess. Not
finding the object of his search at Rochester, Mr. Boggess now
telegraphed to Toronto, U. C., which he learned was a resort
of the lugitive, and proceeded to Syracuse, N. Y., where he
expected he would most likely succeed iu his object. At this
place he learned that inquiries had been made for letters to
Wm. 11. Hess, not two minutes before his arrival. The next
morning Mr. Boggess enclosed a blank letter in an envelope,
and directed it to VV. H. Hess or T. Craig, Syracuse, N. Y.,
stamping it with the postmark of Monmouth, HL, having pro
vided himself with one of the dyes of that office for the pur
pose. Officers were stationed around the Post Office, and
Mr. Boggess look a position within. About 9 o’clock Craig
entered and called for a letter to W. H. Hess, when the lure
of the officer was handed to him. Craig took the letter, looked
at it for a moment, and not liking the double superscription,
handed it back, saying it was not for him. He was still al
lowed to go uncaptured, as it was hoped that he might seek
some of his accomplices, and thus lead to their detection.
But, as he afterward said, he knew the moment he looked at
the ietter that he was caught, and he traveled around through
different portions of the city, closely watched by the officers,
in hopes that ho might yet effect his escape. Finding that he
suspected them, those in pursuit now marched up to him aud
took him prisoner. Ou his person were found papers with
lhe same numbers of tracts of land, marked in his epistle to
Confessions of a Pirate Chief.—-A letter
dated Athens, supplies a copy of the confession made by the
chief of a gat.g of pirates who not tong since murdered the
crew of the Frglish schooner Harriet in the Levant. His ex
amiraiion took place on board the French steam corvette
Chaptai. The pirate deposed that the Commissary of Police
at byra, by name Strati, had incited hint to join the “ war” in
Thessaly, and to seize and sink alt the French and English
ships he. con id find, as those nations were opposed to the en
terprises cf he Greeks. Tbe pirate chief then proceeds with
his statement thus : Strati hired agoelette, with a crew of five
men, in which I embarked with 28 others, of whom 25 were
Samiots. Ibe captain of this vessel came from Styiida, in the
Gulf of Zeitonni. Strati gave me 20 dracmas, but none of the
men who embarked with me received pay; they only had
provisions for two days. I was appointed chief of the expedi
tion, and I alcne knew its object, which I did not reveal to my
companions ui.til we had fairly left Syra, which we left three
hours after sunset iu tho evening. The next day we arrived
at about four or five miles from Gabrios, on the coast of An
dres. At that place we were Becalmed until midnight. About
three hours before daybreak, just as a breeze was rising, our
men saw an English schooner. I was asleep at the time, but
they called me. I ordered my eight and twenty men to follow
jne towards the schooner, aud we boarded her. We had pre
viously hailed the ship and found that it was English, and ch it
the crew also were natives. When we got on board, we made
all the men go down into the capiain’s cabin, and then we
demanded all tbe money on board. The English
three pounds ster.ing, two watches, a telescope, 'two com
passes, and a barrel containing a small quantity of rum. We
thenoriteied all tbe crew on deck, and there we massacred
them with our knives, and cast their bodies into the sea. I
gave no order to kill those men, nor did I kill one mys-if.
V, e bad meant to sink the schooner, but we abandoned tiffs
1 temicr;. fearing to be perceived by other vessels. Af er the
massacre we went to Chalcis, where i landed with my tweuty
eighi companions, and we paid a visit to our compatriot, Col
onel Siamati Giorgiades. but did not find him at home. The
next cay we went to Bourgi; where we found Stamati, his son,
and another person. The same day we went back to Chalcis
with btamati in a barque which belonged to him. We stayed
a monih with Stamaft, to whom we told our adventures, aud
he approved our conduct. Of the 28 men who followed me,
18 left Chalcis to go to Stylida. StamoU advised me to become
a pirate, and to go to the Anatolian coast, ’here to wait till a
fitt ng opportunity presented itself for attacking Sarnos. We
left Chalcis iu a perame, touched at Tsoura, lynos, and My
coni, and thence went to Samos. Repenting of my conduct I
made my submission to the Governor of the island, and re
ported to him ait the circumstances attending the massacre

Elopement—Disturbing the Lodgers.—
The Troy i> big tells the'following interesting story :—A well
dressed, young-appearing lady, accompanied by a stnail child,
arrived at ti e Union Depot by ihe Hudson Railroad train on
Tuesday, the. 22d inst., about noon, and made inquiries for the
Mansion House, where she said her husband was to meet her.
A porter iu attendance directed her to the Mansion House.
She had no l - been long there when, on the arrival of another
train from A bany, she was joined by the “husband,” and
the two wei-e glad to meet each other, as husband and wife
should be. Passing the afternoon to themselves, at proper
time in the evening they retired. On the arrival of the half
past 10 o’c!< ck train, P. M., two gentlemen alighted from the
cars, and, ts luck would have it, one of them approached the
same perter who at noon had kindly directed the lady to the
Mansion H- use, and inquired if during lhe day he had seen a
lady abom so tail, and dressed so and so, having iu her arms
a small chila—if he had seen a lady of that description on any
01’he trains during tbe day. The porter remembered at once
the story 01 the lady who expected to meet her husband at the
Mansion House, and, recalling her size, dress, &c., he told the
inquiring gentleman that he had seen such a lady as he de
scribed, and that he would find his wife'at the Mansion House.
In this “Jack” told the truth, as the sequel will show. Pro
ceeding to the Mansion House, the two gentlemen made known
their business to the gentlemanly proprietors. The story was
one of domestic unhappiness, fruitless efforts of friends for
r< conciliation, finally the desertion of the husband by the wife,
and new of conjugal infidelity on her part. Word was sent to
the v eman that a person was in the house who wished to see
her immediately. She declined suing anybody. Upon this
the husband and his friend repaired to the room, denanded
admittance, which was refused, aud immediately ourstopcu
the door. In the roam were discovered the woman’s para
mour ;nd the child. No sooner did the real husband see the
pretended one, than he proceeded to administer to him an in
definite number of dry Jmocks, much to the injury of his per
sonal appearance, lhe woman rushed from t.he room, and
proceeded in her night-dress down stairs, crying “fire!” at
the top of her voice. This, with the pommeling operation
which vas going on up stairs, aroused the guests and boarders
in the house, who proceeded to “ «onquer a peace” by main
force. The. affair ended by the pretended husband taking a
sudden leave, and the departure of the real husband and his
truant wife and innocent little one, in the 4 o’clock, A. M.
train for New York.

Attempt to Murder a Wife.—The Boston
Sunday Despatch, A ng. 20. says that W. O. Eaton, late assistant
editor of Dodgels Museum, under some kind of demoniacal in
fluence attempted to iliurder his wife, who, on account, of con
jugal troubles, had left her liege lord, and sought shelter and
protection beneath her father’s roof. It appears that Eaton
vent to Lyim on Thursday afternoon, and passing by the re
sidence of his father-in-law, Mrs. Eaton saw him, and recol
lecting former difficulties, spoke to him from the window and
besought him to go back to Boston and leave her in peace.
Eaton pretended to be penitent and requested an interview,
which was granted, and “High Rock” was named as the
place of meeting. Mrs. Eaton, however, distrusting the in
tentions of her husband, touk a companion, Miss Bnssow,
with her, and the interview was held at the place designated.
V» bat occurred there is not known, but about half-past seven
o’clock, Mr. and Mrs. Eaton aud Miss Bessow were seen
coming down Pearl-st. Nothing out of the ordinary course of
things was remarked until the trio arrived at rhe foot of Pearl
st. near Union, Miss Bessow, at Eaton’s request, walking tea
or twelve paces in front, when Mrs. Eaton suddenly left her
husband and ran across Pearl-st. She was speedily overtaken
by Eaton, who seized her by the neck, turned her violently
round, presented a pistol—the muzzle of which touched her
temple—and pu led the trigger. She inclined her head for
ward and the ball passed through tbe cape of her bonnet,
tearing off a portion of the lace around her neck. The report
of the pistol attracted a crowd, and officer Palfrey undertook
to arrest the husband. With the ferocity of a tiger, Eaton
assaulted the officer and was pommeling him in a brutal
manner, when several citizens interfered and secured the
offender. The discharged pistol was found in the front yard
ol a dwelling nt ar the place of assault, and the mate to it,
heavily charged, was picked up the next morning in 'he yard
of the Ciiy Hall, where it had evidently been thrown by Eaton
after he was placed in the lock-up. On Friday morning
Eaton was brought before Justice Newhall of the Police Court
on the charge of attempting to murder his wife, but at the
request of his counsel, Dean Peabody, Esq., the examina'ion
was postponed until Monday morning. Iu the meantime
Eaton is quartered at the jail in Salem.
Atrocious Outrage.—At Ipswich, Eng
land, a short time since, William Meen and Albert Garrod,
two well dressed a»d appa»ently respectable young men, the
former said to be a man of fortune, were indicted, the former
for violating Mary Barren, and ihe latter for aiding and abet
ting him. The prosecutrix is a girl of tbe age of 19, serving
on a farm. She swore that, on the evening nf the 27th June,
the two prisoners overtook her as she was returning home,
after having delivered a message on which she had been sent.
They were driving in a gig, aud after they ba ! persisted in
talking to her against her will, and had annoyed her by driv
ing the gig before her, Mecn jumped out of it, and, despite
her screams and resistance, accomplished his purpose. Gar

sently.” Attei Meen left her Ga roti got out of the gig and
pursued her lor some time, but ultimately let her go. She
Immediately on getting home told her master. For the de
fence oi’ Meen, it was contended that the girl had consented ;
that she had not screamed ; that she had been guilty of gross
immodesty on other occasions, and that she was a notorious
liar, whom her own employer would not believe on her oath.
!■ or Garrod it was contended that even if his companion was
guilty he was not, for that he had not done any positive act of
interference. Tbe prisoners were convicted, and the learned
judge, in passing sentence, told them that he entirely appro
ved of the verdict of the jury, and that their offences were
much aggravated by the respectability of their position in
society, and by the attack which been made by them in
their defence on ’he character of the prosecutrix. The de
fence had been supported by a number of witnesses, and it
was clear that no expense or pains had been spared to sup
port ihe line of defence which had been adopted. Garrod
bore interposed, and denied all attempts to suborn witnesses,
or personally to suggest the evidence to be given by them,
them. Meen also spoke to the same effect. The Chief Jus
tice said he did not mean to impute personal subornation of
perjury, but to point out that guilt such as that of th« prison
er was much afgiavated by such a defeuce as had been set
up. The sentcr.ee of the court was. that Meen be transported
fur fifteen years, and that Garrod be imprisoned and kept to
hard labor for two years.
Great Robbery on the Crescent City.
—A late number of the Cleveland Herald says : Some time
during '1 hursday night, on the passage of the Crescent City
up from Buffalo, the state-rooms of many of the passengers
vere robbed of the valuables therein, either by the entrance
of thieves through the windows or by means of false keys.
The rascals carried off watches, money, sp'-c’acles, ornaments,
and evtn clothing. Of course, there was a season of excite
n-.ent on the Crescent when “daylight dawn appeared.”
A n eng those robbed were a number cf ladies, who lost all
tbe money they bad. Capt. Pease—gentleman as he always
Is—furnished these ladies, from his own pocket, with the
fuuds necessary for them to reach their places of destination.
As tbe boat neared the dock, Capt. Pease, from tbe wheel
house, gave the signal to Officer Warren, who was on the
dock, and, as the passengers were passing over the gangway
plank, Warren nabbed four suspicious characters, whose ages
range from eighteen to twenty-eight years. These fellows
were taken into the Depot and examined, and turned out
enough watches and trinkets, <tc., to furnish an ordinary
jewelry store. The articles found upon them consisted of
three breast-pins, three gold watches, two of which were taken
fr<m ladies, a number of gold chains and lockets, various
rings, and among them a Masonic Knight Templar’s ring ot
great value, a v allot containing twenty-eight dollars, and a
package of money containing $325 in gold and bills. This
package was cut from the pantaloons pocket of Capt. Wells, of
Black River, while on his person, he being asleep in his berth.
Not only all the property stolen on board the Crescent was
found on the rascals—who gave their names as David Wood
ward, Robt. D. Marlin, Orlando J. Durand, and Wm. Henry
Green, or Gun—-but various other articles of value. Among
these was a very valuable gold watch, which, it is supposed,
was stolen from the Clarendon, Buffalo. Capt. Pease had
his suspicions fastened upon the thieves immediately after the
robbery was discovered; and by putting some of his men on
their track, and closely watching them until the boat arrive!
at the deck, prevented them from hiding their plunder.
A Tragedy.—The Charlotte Whig gives
the particulars of a bloody affray that took place in that town
on the 14th inst.: James Wilson, aged 19, and Nathaniel C.
Clayiand, about 21 years of age, were returning from a camp
meeting in Lincoln County, some 28 miles distant trom Char
lotte, when a slight difficulty sprung up between the young
men about the loan of some money, the former asking the
latter for the loan of two or three dollars, and the latter refu
sing, alleging that he already let him have some, and thereupon
an altercation ensued, which resulted in Clayland slapping
WiL-on’s jaws. Wilson remarked to Clayland that he would
see him again in town—the latter responding that he could be
found about the streets during the evening. Wilson then left
the company and arrived in town about fifteen minutes in ad
vance of Clayland and the rest of the party who were with
them. As soon as he arrived Ju tevvn, he made inquiry of
several of his friends for a pistol,'and finally succeeded in
finding his own in his carpet-bag, in the billiard-room imme
diately over tbe grocery of Bryan & Thompson, one of his
friends having brought his carpet-bag from the camp-meeting
for him. Thus armed, he stepped down into the grocery,
where he found Clayland, and walked up to him and told him
that he had slapped his jaws and he intended to kill him for
it. Clayland, not thinking that he was serious, pushed him
away, and remarked in a jocular manner, that he had nothing
against him and wanted nothing to do with him. Wilson then,
drew his pistol and presented it; Clayland caught his hand
and held it up, repeating the same remark. He then let go
and attempted to step behind a screen standing near by, when
he received the ball of the pistol in the left side, about 21-2
inches below the breast. Clayland made a step or two, fell to
his knee, and remarked to Wilson that he had killed him.
Wilson answered with some slight remark, threw down his
pistol, mounted his horse and made bis escape westward. He
has not been arrested. Clayland is still alive, and there is a
prospect of his recovery. Both these young men were raised
in the same town, attended the same school, and had always
been remarkably friendly and intimate with each other.
Murder and Robbery.—A most foul and
brutal murder was committed a short time since, ou River-st.,
Cleveland. A man was found at the corner of Lighthouse
and River streets, lying a' the foot of a lamp-post, in a state
of insensibility. His head and face were awfully cut, bruised
and mangled. The police say they never saw a burr an head
and face so terribly abused. The man was carried tothe eu-y -
prison, end a physician sent for immediately. Everything
that medical skill could afford was done. During the course
of the forenoon he senses, although much weak
ened from the loss of blood, and gave the following narra
tive :—He gave his name as Samuel Miller, of Addison, Oak
land County, Mich Has a wife and six children residing in
Michigan ; owns three tracts of land in that State; camo into
this city on the cars Tuesday bight, about 11 or 12 o’clock. A
runner got him to stop at a hell-hole called a tavern on River
street; he could not remember its name. He was hungry,
and called for something to eat —pigs feet, among other dishes.
A large number of fellows were about the den, drinking,
gambling and dancing. One of them, a big, burly villain,
accosted him while at supper, and grossly insulted him. See-
Ing he was among cut-throats, he arose and left the house. He
was followed by the big villain and four or five others, was
struck over the head, knocked down and kicked senseless, his
head and face beaten to a jelly ; his pockets were then rifled
of $65 in Pennsylvania money, and other valuables. His
body was dragged some distance and left for dead. He was
found in the morning, as above mentioned. He experienced
eight fits before he was relieved from his misery by welcome
death. His physical system struggled hard with the king of
terrors before yielding. He lingered until 2 o’clock on Friday
morning. An inquest was held, and the jury rendered a ver
dict of “Death caused by blows otl the head by persons un
Murderous Assault by a Husband.—
Probable Death of the Wife.— A man named William Sin
gleton, aged between 35 and 40 years, residing at Na. 25 Rock
street, near Lexington, Baltimore, went to his home about 5
o’clock a few evenings since, and committed a murderous on
slaught upon his wife. Upon reaching the house, he found
his wife sitting in the parlor sewing, whereupon he went into
the kitchen and picked up a hatchet, with which he returned,
and making the remark that he intended to carry into effect
his previous threat, commenced striking at her. For a time
she kept the blows from her body by throwing up her hands,
the right one of which was cut in many places fr<Jm the wrist
to the ends of the fingers, laying the bones exposed to view.
He then rushed upon her and cut her through the clothes and
deep into the'flesh of the right side, inflicting a frigh ; ful gash,
and one that will more than probably prove fatal. Dr. S.
Pratt was soon in attendance, and upon his opening the parlor
door, found him administering chloroform to her, in order to
hasten her death. Upon the coming iuof Officer Essender, he
made an assault upon him, but the officer warded off his
blows, and secured him until Officers Bender and Gordshell
came to his assistance, when he was committed to jail. Ou
his road to jail he boasted of that which he had dine, and
said that it was not only bis intention to kill her, but two oth
ers. Perhaps the others mentioned by him are his chil
dren, he having rtat number. He has for some time been
addicted to drinking—had drank hard that day, but was sober
at the time of committing the deed. Not a word of reproach
can jail upon the poor wife—she has always, and deservedly,
bore an excellent character, and was lhe entire support of the
family. Th© doctor examined and dressed the wounds, aud
is doing all in his power to cause her recovery, but thinks her
Injuries of such a nature that death must relieve her of her
g ullerings.
An Inhuman Schoolmaster.—Thos. Hesse,
a schoolmaster, of No. 11 Mansfield street, Dalston, was ex
amined lately at Cierkenwell (London) Police Court, on a
charge of having violently assaulted Henry Howard Belmont
Neale, 7 years of age, one of his pupils.—The father of the
boy said that the defendant had before ill-used the child vio
lently, but he looked over it until about a fortnight ago, when
he returned front school suffering such severe pain that he
could not lie or sit down, and on examining his person he dis
covered that the little fellow was covered with a mass of se
ver e bruises which h© said had been inflicted by the defend
ant, who held his head tightly between his knees whilst he
cruelly chastised him. lie also seized him by his head and
flung him over the desk. He, the father, called in a doctor,
who examined the boy’s person and found his spine injured.
The little sufferer’s back was exhibited by direction of Mr.
Corrie, which was sickening, and created a sensation in the
court. —In answer to Mr. Corrie, the defendant said he was
compelled to chastise the boy for unruly conduct. He beat
him with a common school-cane.—Mr. Stephen, surgeon, said
there were several severe contusions on the boy’s back and
loins. His spine was injured.—Mr. Corrie: The boy had
now recovered, and the question was as to the chastisement
exercised on the occasion. He had no doubt after what hid
taken place the defendant was sorry, and under the circum
stances be thought the best mode was to allow him to pay the
doctor and all other expenses incurred in reference to the
prosecution, instead of con vic’ing him in a pecuniary fine.—
The legal gentlemen concurred, and the expenses, which
could not be of small amount, being paid, the defendant was
Money Found.—The Bank of Darien
Robber —The Savannah UepuUican says:—The workmen
employed in preparing the foundation for a new wall about
to be erected on the Bluff at the foot of Abercom street, dug
up a box containing gold and silver coins of various denomi
nations, including eagles, half-eagles, halves, quarters and
dimes. Ihe greater part of the coin bears date from 1330 to
1834. The box in which it was found was made of wood,
and has doubtless been buried several years, as it is entirely
decayed. We have not been able to ascertain the exact
amount discovered, but it is generally reported to be about
$360. Rumor, which moves with the rapidity of lightning,
at one time fixed it at S7OO, then at $9,000, and again at $14,-
000 ; but the figures first given above are near the truth, we
presume. The money is supposed by many to be a portion
of that stolen from the Darien Bank in 1835. This Bank was
robbed in that year of a large amount of money in bills,
coin, etc., and an officer (William Williams) was seat to New-
York to arrest a man upon whom suspicion rested, named
Fitzgerald, a blacksmith by trade. Williams Succeeded in
arresting him, and got him on board a vessel bound for Sa
vannah, but the man effected his escape the day before they
were to have sailed. A portion of the money taken from the
Bank was found scon after the robbery, at the foot of an old
tree ou the Bluff, overlooking the coun ing-room of Messrs.
Ctaghorn & Cunningham, aud not far from the spot where the
box was dug up yesterday. Another portion (it is believed)
was found some ten years ago, at the site of rhe present Gas
Works. The vault was entered on the 7th June, 1835, with
false keys, and robbed of bills and specie to the amount of
about sloo,ol'o.
A Monster in Human Shape.—The Ab
ingdop Democrat says: A German named Jacob Breuigar is
now awaiting his trial in Wyoming county, Ya., chaaged with
a series of offences that surpass la horror any of the tales
w bich old women tell bad children to keep them quiet of
giants who lived “once upon a time.” This Breuigar was
formerly a Baptist preacher in North Carolina. While resid
ing there he attempted an outrage upon his own daughter.
His wife made tbe fact known, and Brcnigar, with his family,
moved into Wyoming. There he made another attempt to
rape his own daughter. Shortly afterward, being desirous of
obtaining a renewal of his license to preach, which had been
taken from him in North Carolina, he applied to his wife to
retract the charge she had brought against him, amTadmit
that >he had sworn falsely. This she refused to do, notwith
standing he inflicted frequent and severe beating upon her.—
At last, finding neither persuasion, threats, nor cuffings would
have any influence, one night he pulled his wife out of bed,
and .dragged her over a piece of new ground, full of stumps,
injuring her so seriously that she died a short time after giv
ing premature birth to a child. Mrs. Brenigar at first refused
to tell the mode of receiving her injuries ; but, finding that
death was inevitable, made some of the neighbors acquainted
with all the facts. The husband was arrested, but raleased
on ba 1. While under bonds, he made an attempt to decoy
his niece, a married woman, into the woods at the back of
her residence, but she told her husband, who pursued the
ruffian, and would have killed hint, but his gun missed fire.

in lazewell, who is cognizant of all the facia.
Stolen Child Recovered.—The Newark
Mercujy of the 23d inst., says:—Some two years since, a little
girl, about eight years of age, was stolen from her parents in
New York, and so effectually concealed were tlie arrange
ments of the abductors, that all efforts to reclaim the missing
child proved abortive. Recently, however, suspicion was
excited that the girl had been stolen by parties in this city,
who were bringing up the child as their own; and, accord
ingly, in company with a friend, the mother yesterday came
hiiher, and commenced a search for the lost one, having first
obtained the aid of a male friend well acquainted with the
circumstances. The first thing to be discovered was the resi
dence of the supposed kidnappers, and tills, after patient and
protracted search and inquiry, being found out, the mother
at once proceeded to the premises, and, knocking at the door,
it was opened by her own daughter, between whom and the
mother there was a mutual recognition. The woman of the
house, however, persisted in claiming the child as hers, and
threatened summary vengeance upon any one who should at
tempt to remove her. But the mother, strong in right, was
not to be intimidated by threats, aud, accordingly, taking her
caughter by tbe hand, hurried her to the Market street depot,
jumped in the cars, and a moment after was beyond pursuit.
The man and woman with whom the girl has been living re
siuc in Pre spect street, and the former has hi’herto borne a
fair reputation, being foreman in one of the largest manufac
turing shments of the city. Both are said to have been
furious at the discovery of their villany; the girl, however,
was overjoyed at their discomfiture, and* accompanied her mo
ther with eager pleasure. /
Pass Him A hound.—A newspaper corres
pondent writes as follows“ I nave just heard from a gen
tleman traveling in the South and West, a story of a very
clever Northern swindler, who has been playing a skillful and
successful game on Southern and Western people for the past
five years. The man is young and of a very pleasing address.
He pretends to be an Episcopal theological student. He hangs
around the Northern colleges, Yule and Harvard, till he can
pick up a ew scraps of information about the wealthiest of
the Southern students; learns who their parents are and
where they live, etc. Then travelling through the South, he
slops at the residence of some hospitable planter, pretends
that he has turned aside from his course at the urgent request
of the gentleman’s son, his intimate college friend. Under
such circumstances, noihing can be too good for him. Me
lives on the fat of the land, aud always contrives to lose his
pocket-book, with several hundreds in bills and drafts. He
don’t tell of it, but, feigning, with Jesuitical craftiness and art,
a ccnccaled sorrow, he excites the sympathizing inquiries of
his host. Then, bursting into tears, he confesses his loss. Of
covtrse, the planter’s pockei-book is wide open. The theologi
cal student helps himself, and walks off’. But he don’t ever
come back to that vicini'y again. He goes on to new eoa
ques:s. In one place, however, on the Ohio River, he vic
timized three gentlemen within a few miles of each other.
Perhaps he may favor some of your readers with a call. He
cslls himself Mayham, alias Mayhon, alias a half dozen other
names. Judge McGee, Rev. Mr. Stratton, N. 0., aul others,
hate suffered by him.*’
A Hardened Young Female Thief.—At
the Middlesex (English) Sessions lately, Elizabeth Sollitt, aged
1 19, pleaded guilty to having stolen a gold watch and chain,
five pounds in money, and. a large quantity of wearing appa
rel, the property and money of Henry Reid, her master. The
prosecutor said, before she entered his service she gave hun
a wrlt’en character as from her last place, but it was found
afterwards to be ft forged one. The magistrate said tiffs was
a very bad case indeed, and though the prisoner was so voang,
and appeared so artless, it showed that she was a complete
adept in crime. She got. into the service of the prosecutor, a
gentleman residing at Hull, by means of a false character,
and Laving been there but a very short time, she collected to
gether as much valuable property as she could, including her
master’s watch and chain, and her mistress’s dresses, and
decamped. Sue came to Loudon, and went to an hotel, where
she represented that she had come from the country to get
some money to which site was enutled from the Bank of Eng
land. The prosecutor came to London, and met her by acci
dent in the strand, at which time she was wearing one of her
mistress's dresses, and he then gave her into custody. A let
ter had been handed in stating tnat she was a very bad char
acter, and she had committed a precisely similar oiTehce at
the bouse of a clergyman where she had been in service. He
should not be doing his duty if he did not sentence her to a
severe punishment, and the sentence was that she be kept in
penal servitude for four years, 'lhe prisoner appeared io
regard the sentence with the greatest indifference.
Extraordinary Affiliation Case. A
case of a peculiar uud painful nature has just been investigat
ed at the police-court, Langton, Staffordshire, England. Tne
informution charged the Rev. John Magee Martyn, minister
of Hanley Presbyterian church, with being the puta’ivc father
cf u mule ilh giumate child, of which c.arah Felicia Holmes is
mother. The complainant said: She was a milliner and
straw-bonnet maker, and became acquainted with defendant
by going to his church and being a teacher in the Sunday
schtol. Mr. Martyn had promised her marriage, aud was
continually at her father's house, generally ser.ing her once
or twice a week during tbe last six years. On the loth of
October last she gave birth to a child. Mr. Martyn paid her
a sovereign beloie the birth of the child : it was towards ex
penses. She Lad received £9 altogether from Mr, Martyn.
Her parents were not aware of her situation till the Bth of
July iu thejJiesent year. She left Lome on the 12th of Oc
tober in last 5 ear, and on the 15lh she was confined. She
disguised herself so that her father aud mo'hcr could not tell
she was in Ihp family-way. The Rev. Mr. Mariya being
sworn, most distinctly denied the paternity of trie child. He
said that his visits to the house of the H Irnes’s were purely
of a ministerial ana social character. The magistrate said
he felt called upon to affiliate the child, and ordered Mr.
Martyn to pay 2s 6d per week and costs.—Notice of appeal
was given.
A Wretch Arrested.—During the month
of March last, one Granville F. Shelby, a day policeman of
Cincinnati, was arrested in that city, foi the revolting crime of
incest—ihe victim being his own daughter. Shelby made his
escape front prison, after a brief incarceration; since which
time no tidings of his whereabouts could be obtained until re
cently. About three weeks since, Oilicer Boyrugton of Buffa
lo, received n letter from Officer Bruen of Niagara Falls, de
scribing his appearance, and requesting that he (Officer 8.,)
would look him up. Since then, Boyington has made fre
quent trips io the Falls—finding, at length, that Shelby was
stopping on the Canada side, under the name of 8. S. S. Gar
diner. He had some, difficulty, however, m settling upon the
right-man, as ’here were two together, (probably brothers,)
each answering to the description. He therefore telegraphed
to Bruen, asking him to cune on and identify the rascal. Bru
en. in company with Officer Mannison of Cincinm ti, came on
directly, and the former accompanied Boyington to the Fails
on Saturday. Arriving nt ihe depot, Boyington espied one of
the Dronnos sitting upon tbe outside seat of an omnibus, and,
pointing him out to Bruen, was told that was the very man.
Boyington straightway arrested him, when he put on an in
jured air, and began to plead his innocence ; but seeing Bru
en, he instantly gave up. He was taken to Cincinnati by the
two officers before named.
Attempt of a Mother to Destroy Her
self AJiD Child. —Anne Merritt, a dissipated looking young
w oman, whose clothes were dripping with wet, was charged
at the Murylebone (London) Police Court lately with attempt
ing to drown herself and her child, a fine boy, aged about six
years, whose dress, of a superior description, was also
thoroughly saturated with water. From the evidence of a
lad named Isaiah Williams, who was fishing hr the ornamental
water in the Regent’s Park, that about 2 o’clock the previous
day, he heard a plunge, and du turning saw the female and
child struggling in the water. He at once rushed in aud suc
ceeded in dragging them to the bank. The. child was tied to
the woman’s waist by the band of his dress. She said she
slipped in. The busband, a respectable man, said that the
affair arose from intemperance, and he was certain that she
wished to destroy his child. He did not wish her punished,
but wanted to get the boy from her care. Mr. Long, how
ever, said he would send her to the House of Detention for a
week. The scene at tbe separation of the child, wife, and
father, was most heartrending, and the woman seemed most
acutely to feel the wretched condition in which she haff placed
Horrible.—The body of a man named
Dennis Holland was taken out of the canal at Philadelphia, at
the intersection of Eight-st., near the footbridge, about 6 1-2
o’clock on Sunday morning. The deceased was an Irish la
borer and a man of very industrious, sober habits. He had
been a resident of that city more than live years, and Lad re
cently boarded with a man named Francis Relley, near My
er’B Bridge. He was missing since Friday night, and his
friends becoming apprehensive for his safety, because of
his unaccustomed absence, made a vigorous but vain search
for him (luring that night and the day following, Saturday.
When taken out of the water he was found to have a se
vere cut over the left eye, beside having his neck broken.
This led to strong suspicions that he had been murdered and
afterward thrown into the canal. This conclusion was very
reasonable, for at no point along that part of the canal,
more especially where he was found, could any injury have
occurred to him by falling in. There was nothing against
which he might have come in contact save the water, which
certainly could not haye broken his neck. An inquest was
held about 10 o'clock bn Sunday morning, over the body, and
the Jury, after a due consideration of the matter, rendered
a verdict that the man was murdered by some person or per
sons unknown. *
Areest of a N oted Counterfeiter and a
Supposed Confederate.—A few days since, in Cleveland,
Ohio, oilicer McKinstry received a telegraphic dispatch from
Buffalo, requesting him to arrest Harry Cole alias Smithupoa
his arrival at Cleveland in the propeller Toledo. Almost
simultaneously with the receipt of the dispatch, officer Cowen,
of Buffalo, who arrived in the above town on the morning of
the 19lh, for the purpose of identifying the unclaimed stolen
property taken from the Crescent City thieves, met and recog
nized Cole, as he was passing the American House. He
clinched Cole, whereupon Cole knocked Cowendown, and ran
toward the railroad track at the foot of Superior-st. Here he
was seized and held by an Irish switch-tender until the oilicer
came up ; a supposed confederate attempted to rescue him,
but was overpowered and carried to the watch-house. Cole
is under charges of counterfeiting, altering and passing bank
bills, in several counties in the State of New York, but
he has eluded the vigilance of the officers of State for the past
two •
Terrible Fracas. —A terrible row took
place at Lynchburgh, Va., about two weeks since, between
the showmen of Barnum’s mammoth exhibition and the citi
zens of Lynchburgh, resulting from the great number of extra
charges made, notwithstanding the published notice that the
whole was to be seen for fifty cents. It was reported that five
persons, two of the citizens and three of the showmen, were
very seriously, if not fatally injured, and many others slightly.
The affair wound up by the entire demolition of the ticket
< liice and the destruction of its contents, together with no lit
tle incidental damage to the show fixtures. The scene is rep
resented to have been fearful; men, women and children
were assembled under the huge tent, and the greatest con
sternation prevailed. Unable to leave the tents, being in
some cases deserted by their pro'eciors, and in all afraid of
being shot or knocked down in the melee, the alarm of the
ladies was excessive.
Horrible Attempt to Murder a Child.—
The London Police received information a short time since
that a man named Burke had attempted, in conjunction with
a woman with whom he travelled and cohabited, to murder a
child by burying it alive in a field near St. Albans. They had
dug a hole, and had commenced throwing in the earth, when
the terrific screams of the child alarmed some laborers in the
vicinfry, and the couple took tlight, leaving the child, who was
at once extricated. An active pursuit is being made of the
parties implicated. Burke is described as a haymaker, a
native of the county Mayo, Ireland, about 5 feet 7 Inches in
height, thin pale face, with whiskers, was dressed in dark
velvet jacket and corduroy trousers. The woman is about 5
feet 4 inches in height, full breasted, and pitted with the small
pox. The child whom they attempted to murder, it is be
lieved, is the illegitimate oilspring of the female.
The Execution of Weigart— On Satur
day week, Weigart, found guilty of the murder of Cushing, in*
the city of Lexington, Kentucky, during the last winter, suf
fered the extreme penalty of the law. It is said that the un
fortunate man manifested, when the sentence was about be
ing fulfilled, considerable trepidity ; and, after the noose had
been adjusted, he jumped from the platform, thus actually
hanging himself. An immense crowd was present. The
murder, it will be remembered, was committed in a lit of pas
sion. Cushing was a clerk in a store, when Mrs. Weigart en
tered, and, mistaking her for a female of his acquaintance, he
stepped up to her and patted her on the shoulder. Instantly
discovering his mistake, he made an humble apology. Mrs.
W., however, greatly offended, went home and told her hus
band, who armed himself and started in search of Cushing,
found him, and shot him dead on the spot.
Affray in Schoharie County. —A very
serious affray occurred in the town of Wright, Schoharie
county, some days since, which grew out of stealing some
fruit from the farm of a Mr. Schoolcraft, by laborers on the
Susquehanna Railroad. It appears they were caught in the
act of stealing, and were driven off the farm by Mr. S. and
some persons in his employ. In the evening, the persons re
turned to the farm with a reinforcement, when they nearly
demolished the house of Mr. Schoolcraft, and beat him and
his wife in a serious manner. The neighbors, upon hearing
what had transpired, immediately set about ferreting out the
perpetrators of the outrage. Three of the party were traced
to Albany, and foend at Woolford s Bull’s Head, on the 18th.
They were taken back to Schoharie county, where an exami
nation will be held.
Riot and Loss of Life —The Charleston
Standard, of August 17, says A dreadful riot is reported to
have taken place at Adairsville, Cass county, Ga., last Satur
day night. The Atlanta liepublican stales that James Black
well, the Marshal, was shot and instan ly killed; Deputy Mar
shal Hillburn was severely cut on his head; Samuel Dobbs,
freight engineer on the railroad, was shot iu the forehesyi, but
the ball fortunately glanced; and five balls were lodged iu the,
body of Mr. Ely, a fireman, who is thought to be fatally
wounded. The Republican does not give the particulars
respecting the origin of the riot, but says that several persons
connected with the transaction are in custody, fr.ym which we
infer that the fight commenced among the employees on the
Riot among Irishmen. —The Buffalo Com
mercial of Monday week says, a difficulty has been brewing
for seme time past in the town of Hamburg, at White’s Cor
ner, in consequence of tbe conduct of some of the Irish popu
lation, who raised a cross on the top of a liberty pole in the
village. This excited the anger of a large number of highly
respectable citizens, and on the previous Saturday, while the
emblem was being removed, a serious riot occurred thibugh
the acts of the Irish Catholics, who assaulted the men engaged
in the work. It was rumored about town that three mm
were killed in the affray ; but we learn nothing reliable up to
the time of writing, and trust the report may prove un
Murder at South Boston. —On Sunday
evening, about / 1-2 o’clock, as Mr. Humphrey Duncan was
returning from a walk into the country with a friend, while
passing from Broadway into Silver street, South Boston, where
ie i esided, he was assaulted by a party of rowdies, who
rushed out of a house where they had been fighting among
themselves, and apparently without the least cause or provo
cation, was struck in the back part of the head and knocked
down. His cowardly assaulters then brutally thrust his head
against the pavement, inflicting injuries of which Mr. ]>. died.
Three of ihe murderers have been arrested. The deceased
was a man of peaceable disposition.
Murder at Syracuse. —A few mornings
. ince the body of Mathew Jordan was found in the lumber
ard of Messrs. Gifford <fc Colton, situated at the corner of
ames and Pearl-sts., Syracuse. Upon examination, a large
uamity of blood was discovered between the tow-path and
yard, with here and there drippings of blood on the way lead
ing to the yard. The body had no marks upon it, with the
exception of the right side of the face which was completely
smashed in. The Coroner held an inquest, but no direct clue
was got to the perpetrator. Suspicion attaches to a Captain
of a boat which went down the Oswego Canal.
Ap.rison, the Murderer. —The Cincinnati
Times received a letter from a very respectable citizen re
siding in lowa, in the vicinity of the father of Arrison, of in
fernal machine fame, who says ‘ln your paper of August
3, you of Arrison as having escaped from lowa. His
father lives wiihin five miles pf this place, and as my practice
calls me in that neighborhood often, I can say with certainty
that he is still in the brush near his father’s. Traces of him
are seen every day, and be has been shot at twice during the
last week ; but the brush is so thick that he has so far
escaped. There is a continual watch kept up around the
The Amsterdam Murders. —We published
In our last issue the fact that a man had been apprehended in
London, charged with being the murderer of five persons in
Amsterdam, and that he had been removed to Holianl.—
The prisoner, when brought before the Lord Mayor, gave the
name of Franz de Hass, and stoutly persisted that it was not
the name mentioned in the message, but on learning that he
was lo be taken back to Amsterdam, he admitted his name to
be John Henry Kemper.
Crime in St. Louis. —The St. Louis
Republican, of the IGih inst., says there has not been a night
within the past week when the dagger has not drunk the
blood of its victim. The police office for several nights past,
has been the receptacle of bleeding men who have had the
knife put to them. The dens of iniquity in the city—bad
enough under ordinary circumstances —have recently been
stirred up by the worst passions, and the streets every night
are infested by bands of reckless men in pursuit of difficul
ties, armed to the teeth and eager for an affray.
Murder at Cold Spring. —The Jamestown
Democrat lears that an altercation took place on Sunday, 6th
inst., at Cold Spring, Cattaraugus coun y, between two In
dians, by the names of Henry Gordon and John Brooks.
They were both intoxicated, when Gordon, who is usually
(when not under the influence of whiskey) a very peaceable
Indian, struck Brooks over the head wdh his gun. Brooks
died on Monday morning. Gordon was arrested and committ
ed to jail for trial.
Crime and its Consequences— Tne jail of
St. Joseph county; Michigan, at Centreville, was burned on
the 19th inst, one of four prisoners confined iu it, and who,
while it was burning, confessed to having set it on lire, per

keys, and before the man could be reached by chopping
through the logs of which the jail was constructed, he was
Liberated. —Mr. Jeremiah Smith, former
ly Mayor of Rye, England, who was convicted of perjury,
was recently liberated from Newgate before the expiration of
his sentence; no: because there was any doubt of the jus ice
of Lis conviction, but because a medical man certified that
his life was in danger—it was feared he would die of ap

We are continually asked, What is the difference between
, Radway’sregulators and ordinary pills 1*
We answer, that pills, as they are ordinarily prepared and
i sold by different manufacturers, are generally of two kinds—
those which operate on the bowels merely, called purgative
pills, and those which exette the secretion of the liver, and are
called mercurial or liver pills. Radway’s Regulators resemble
pills merely in shape, but differ in every other characteristic.
They act not merely on the bowels, but on the liver, skin, pan
creas, and kidneys, regulating each organ to an healthy action.
They are not drastic, and never give pain as most purgative
pills do; they stimulate tbe liver without endangering the pa
tient with salivation, as mercurial pills do. containing no mine

length of time. They are tasteless, being enveloped in an ele

HEYMANN’S dyspepsia elixir,
Ever Offered to the Public.
The undersigned, in thus introducing HEYMANN’S GREAT
DYSPEPSIA ELIXfR to the notice of the public—and more
particularly to the attention of that portion of the public (and
their name is legion) who are suffering under the effects of the
very disstressing malady which it is the mission of the ELIXIR
to radically cure—beg leave to state (hat they offer it with the
fullest confidence that it will effect what no other medicine has
ever yet effected,
tbe wretched victim of Dyspepsia—the most baneful of all the
ills which flesh is heir to—but
Many worthless nostrums, professing to accomplish the
same great desideratum, but never in a single instance effect
ing it, have time and again been offered to the public ; and
those who have been deceived through their agency, may at
first feel inclined to regard Heymann’s Dyspepsia Elixir as
butanodier. misscalled remedy of the same character. The
proprietors are confident, however, that those of this class, who
wl.o will lake th© trouble to inquire into the veracity
of the following certificates, will speedily change their views
on the subject, and as quickly resort to the use of the Elixir, in
order to effect iu their own cases the astonishing and almost
miraculous result descrii cd below.
The fallowing are only a tew of the vast number of testimonials
in proof of the great excellence of the DYSPEPSIA ELIXIR

I bad but little faith that it would heli) me.

1 have suffered for fourteen years with the Dyspepsia, and
when life itself bail become burdensome, and I looked forward to
death only for relief, the use of your medicine restored me to per

I feel it a duty I owe to the world to make a statement of these

Mr. lleymann.—Dear Sir : When I met you last, you requested
ol me a certificate of the effect of your medicine for the cure of
Dyr; epsia, which in iny case was most wonderful.
I have been afflicted for years past with the Dyspepsia in its
most aggravated forms, comj elling me to relinquish business,
ano defying the skill of the best physicians.
It affords me great pleasure to state to you, and to the public,
that in a short space of time I have been completely cured and
restored to my business, by the use of one bottle only of your
‘‘Great Dyspepsia Elixir.”
Mere than three years have elapsed since I used your medicine,
and 1 have experienced no return ol the disease.

I hereby certify that I have suffered for many years with that
horrid disease, the Dyspepsia, and, after applying to several phy
sicians, who did me no good, I, through a kind Providence,
heard of “ Heymann’s Dyspepsia Elixir.”
1 immediately applied to Mr. lleymann for a bottle, which I
used strictly according to direction, and before I had taken one
bottle I was restored to perfect health, and have been able to re
sume and attend to my business of dressmaking ever since, with
out the least detriment to my health, it is a duty which I feel I
owe to the public to make this statement, that others afflicted
witli this disease may know what wonderful things Heymann’s
Dyspepsia Elixir has done.

To the Citizens of the United States:—
I must humbly and sincerely thank you for the immense pa
tronage which yon have bestowed upon my Pills. I take th is
opportunity of stating that my ancestors were all zAmcrican citi
zens, and that I entertain for ail that concerns America and the
Americans, the most lively sympathies, so much so that I origi- (

The citizens of the Union suffer much from disorders of the
Liver and Stomach. The fair sex, perhaps the most handsome
in the world, at a certain period lose their teeth and good looks I
while yet in the heyday of life. Those evils may be effectually !
remedied by continually keeping the bjood pure, and the Liver j
aud Stomach in a healthy action, when life will flow smoothly. I
I say, fearlessly, that health and life may be prolonged for years ,
beyond the ordinary limits, if Holloway’s Pills are taken to pu
rify the blood, in accordance with the directions which accom
pa’nv each box.
Captain John Johnson, of Astor House, New York, suffered
for ten years from a derangement of the Liver and Stomach, and '
was so reduced in strength that he never expected to go to sea j
anymore, having tried every knowp remedy without deriving i
benefit. At last, he had recourse to Holloway’s Pills, which
completely cured him, alter using them for three months, and
he now enjoys the soundest health.

There has long existed a public demand for an I
effective purgative pill which could be relied on as
sure and perfectly safe in its operation. This has
been prepared to meet that demand, and an exten- v
sive trial of its virtues has conclusively shown with U - ® LgF
what success it accomplishes the purposes designed. y
It is easy to make a physical pili, but not so easy to ~<
make the best ot all pills—one which should have none of the
objections, but all the advantages, of every other. This has
been attempted here, and with what success we would respect
fully submit to the public decision. It has been unfortunate for
the patient hitherto that almost every purgative medicine is ac
rimonious and irritating to the bowels. This is not. Many of
them produce so much griping pain and revulsion in the system
as to more than counterbalance the good to be derived from
uiem. These pills produce no irritation or pain, unless it arise
from a previously existing obstruction or derangement in the
bow els. Being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from their
use m any quantity; but it is belter that any medicine should be
taken judiciously. Minute directions for their use in the several
diseases to which they are applicable are given on the box.
Among the complaints which have been speedily cured b v them,
we may mention Liver Complaint, in its various forms o? Jaun
dice, indigestion, Languor and Loss of Appetite, Listlessness,
Irn'.abihty Lllhous Headache, Billions Fever, Fever and AgmH
Pam in the Side and Loins; for, in truih, all these are but the
consequence of diseased action in the Liver. As an An orient
they afford prompt and sure relief iu Costiveness, Piles Colic
Dysentery, iJumors, Scrofula and Scurvy, Colds with soreness
of the body, Ulcers and impurity of the blood; iu short anv arid
every case where a purgative is required
Theey have also produced some singularly successful euros
in Rheumatism, Gout, Dropsy, Gravel, Erysipelas, Palpitation
of tbe Heart, Pains in the Back, Stomach, and Side. They
should be freely taken iu the sping of the year, to purify the
blood and prepare the system for the, change of seasons. Au
occasional dose stimulates the stomach and bowls into healthy
action, and restores the appetite and vigor. To Purify the
blood, and. by their stimulant action on the circulatory svstema
renovate the strength of the body, and restore the wasted o,
diseased energies of the whole organism.- Hence an occasion
al dose is advantageous; even though no serious derangement
exists; but unnecessary dosing should never be carried too far,
as every purgative medicine reduces the strength, when taken
to excess. The thousand cases in which a physic is required
cannot be enumerated here, but they suggest themselves to
the reason of every body; and it is evidently believed this pill
will answer a betfer purpose than anything which hashitlier
tobeen to mankind. When their virtues are once
known, the public will no longer doubt what remedy to em
ploy when in need of a cathartic medicine.

that we are quacks we deny. Medical quackery consists iu 9
man holding himself forth as skilled in the art, without having e
