The Sher iff sent a deputy down to take Mr. Benson, but the bird had flown be fore the deputy got there. These iuformants are possessed of a good dehl of the dog-in-the manger spirit; they can't shoot and don't want any one else to shoot; their selfishness was universally condemned in this 'own; no one gave them any credit /or trying to jnfoi ce the laws of the state.

The operation of Holloway's Pills proceeds upon the same princi ple. The cadaverous complexion, sunken eye, and stooping frame, are timply indications that the internal organs are not doing their duty. If tho skin is suffused with bile, and the breath offensive, there are ob structions hi the liver. If the food, after eating, seems to lie like lead at the pit of the stomach, and is turned info foul gases instead of wholosomo pabulum, the organs of digestion are diseased. Upon these distempered viscera the Pills act as a powerful alterative. They purge mildly, and at th# same time regu late and purify the secretions and the Mood. Need we say that the inevitable consequence is a thorough oure? a Murderer Uonvilted.— John J. Bowen, indicated at New Castle, Del., far the murdeT of John W.

An old and estimable Quaker gentleman, in conversation wrh me last evening, said, the "fire cwors" of the South and the fanatics d the North should be put in a field to gether and be permitted to fight out this question. I think, if this was done, our Country would soon be at peace, and we would sfHrn together as brethren. Old Sussex is well rep here now. Passing around come across the bland and open countenance of Sheriff Lolland—the hale and hearty clerk of the Peife— our elongated friend, who in always happy to sue his customers opposite your office—the sociable and lively resident of Millsboro, Mr. Joseph Morris, who always gives you a shake of the hand us if he was glad to see you—the Brothers Smith, who we hear are about to start the Drug business in your town, should judge that that was t heu' in tention from the stock of grmds, in that line, that they have iiuroh's/sed.

We think they deserve their patronage, as they have done eveiything in their power, to make a "show"—suppo sing, of course, that they have made arrangements to advertise in the Messenger.

Now, we do not like to work for nothing in "paffiug" your st*re keepers, but we must say that your friends will not suffer far Christmas things, if they will walk around to Barker's. He knows how to do up the things. He was here sometime since, and we have been inforned that he took great care to see that no one, below Wilmington, should get ahead of him for Christmas. Whilst we and some others have left your beautiful town to try fortunes in this oity, some of the Philadelphians are going to take our places among you. Mr. Poter Barker k son, of this city, are about to remove to Georgetown to engage in the harness manufactory.

Be careful then, or] such may he the case. arc our I hope your readers will allow me to call their attention to a little matter of annoyance. Many of your friends are in the custom of iea-lsending letters to their friends in this city, requesting them to get certain articles, to send them and they will send the money for the same. Now, I assert that wo are a very obliging set; but our friends should know that money is just as scarce here as it is with them. All the money we have we can find use for, without laying it out for our friends. We are willing to do the best for them that we can. We cheerfully give our time for their benefit. We have heard some In dies say that they have received thess kind of requests from their acquain tances, and have spent hours look ing for an article. When they had ght that they were successful have sent the article down, have, a in thou and after the lapse of time, received it back, with the announcement that something is wrong and a request that they "will be so kind as to have it changed." The merchants in this city, as a general thing, do not change things after they have been bought. Each letter that is recei ved by us costs us two cents for its delivery. Two cents is not much; but two cents added to two cents makes four and so on. They will perceive that in the course of a year is is a great item. We leave it with the reader to make the application. In all good feeling we would ask them tu mind these little requests. 1st, Give explicit directions. 2nd, Send the money for the article that you want, and do not be afraid of sending toe much. 3rd, Do not lie too hard to please. 4th, De not find fault if the article does not exactly suit. 5th, Never, un der any circumstances, send the ar ticle back to he changed. If they will hearken, to the above, we are sure that all will work to gether for good. Hoping that ycu will excuse me for occupying your time with the reading of this, when you might have been better employed, I am, Your Friend, Quaker City. e General News. DR.
