Mr. Edward Bingham: Dear Si With great pleasure I state the fact of the complete and radical cure of the Fever and Ague with which my son William was at tacked, by the U9e, pursuant to directions, of Dr. Osgood's India Cholagogue. lie had as se vere an attack as 1 ever witnessed, and I appre hended a long'winter of this disease, which was some years ago the case when I resided at Tec um selu But I was providentially led to notice your advertisement in relation to this medicine determined to try it, and the use of one bottle broke the disease, and I am confident has effec ted a radical cure, as two months have now elap sed without a return of it, artd my son ia in the enjoyment of robust health. It is an invaluable medicine and should be generally known. Tru ly, your friend, Ross Wii.KiNa From . Hon. Stephen V. R. Trowbridge, of Michigan Slate Senate. Birmingham, Dec. 13, 1S4I. Mr. Bingham: You wish me to inform you what I know of Dr. Osgood's India Cholagogue, or ami blious medicine. I do believe that if the virtue and efficacy of this medicine were gen erally known, the Fever aud Ague would disap pear in Michigan. 1 procured a bottle in the spring of 1841, and have good reason to believe that rnvself and fa in ly escaped the ague last spring in consequence of its use. Perhaps no summer since the settlement ol thin fine peninsular has the fever and ague been so prevalent as the last. I have recommended this medicine in numerous instances, and when the disrase had become fixed and baffled the skill of physicians; and I have never known itfail! It has universally produced the most happy effects, and 1 believe it. has never been exceeded by any medicine in removing the bil ious d eases of the climate. Yours respectfully, Stephen V. B. Trowbridge. From Hon. E. Farnsworth, Chancellor of the State of Michigan. Mr. Edward Binpham, Druggist, Detroit. Sir I have made use of Dr Osgood's India Cholagogue and have had opportunities of wit nessing its salutary effects when used by others. I believe it a most valuable medicine for the cure of fever and ague; and also that its proper use win prove a most certain preventive against its recurrence, to which persons who have been amicted Willi it are liable. Very respectfully, E. Farnsworth. From Lccius Abbott, M D.", late Burgeon United elates Army. Detroit. Oct. I, IS41 To Edward Bingham, Esq., agent for the sale of the Indian Cholagogue: I do hereby certify that I have used the India Cholagogue prepaied By diaries usgood,'fti.

I do further testify that the medicine has in this vicinity, and in others where it has been used, acquired a very high reputation, and that in every case where it has been used to my knowl edge, it has universally produced a speedy cure, and restored to the most perfect health, when all other remedies have failed.

She was a merry maiden ol "sweet seventeen. :" a rustic belle, as well as a rus tic beauty, and a.uterrible coquetlej1' and as she had what in Scotland they call a "toch er," in England a dowry," aad in Ireland a "pretly penny o money," it is scarcely ne cessary to state, in addition, that site had a bachelor.

We may as well give it up, Morris Don ovan," she said somewhat abruptly;, "look, 't would be as easy to twist the top of the great hill, of IIow.lh,as make father and mother agree about any jne thing. They've been playing the rule of cotflrary these twenty years, and it's not likey they'll take a turn now" "It's mighty hard, so it is," replied hand some Morris, "that married people can't draw together. Norah, darlint! that wouldn't be the way with us. It's one we'd be in heart and sowl, and an example of love and " Folly," inlerrn'pled the maiden, laughing, "Morris, Morris, we've quarrelled a score o' times already; and a bit of a breeze makes life all the pleasahter. Shall I talk aboul the merry jig I danced with Phil Kennedy, or repeat What Mark Doolansaidof me to Mary Grey? eh, Morris"?1' "Leave joking now, Norry ; God only knows how I love you."' he said wiih a voice broken by emotion :. "l'tn. yer equal as far as money goes; and no young farmer in the country can tell a better stock to his share than mine; yet I don't preiend to deserve you for all that; only, I can't help saying that, when we1 Ibve each other (now' don't go to contradict,,meJNTorry, because ye've as good as owned it over and over again,) and yer father agreeable, and all to think that yer mother, just foi divilment, should be putting belwixt U3 for no reason upon earth, only to 'spite' her lawful husband,is what sets mad me entirely, and shows her to be a good for "Stop-'MHtet-Morris," evclaimed Norah, laying her hand upon'his mouth, so as to ef fectually to prevent a sound escaping; it'is my mother ye'rs talking about, and it would be ill-blood, as well as ill-bred, to hear a word said against an own parent. Is that the pattern in your manners, sir; or did ye ever hear me turn my tongue against one belong ing to you?" ' "I ask your pardon, my Norah he replied meekly, as'ih duly bound; for the sake of the lamb, we spare the sheep. Why not? and I'm not going to gainsay, but yer mother "The least said's the soonest mended !" again interrupted tile impatient girl. "Good even, Morris, and God bless you; they'll be after misstiWrfie within, and it's little mother thinks where I am." "NorahVlibove all the girls at wake or pat tern, I've been true to you. We have grown together, and since we were the heighth ol a rose-bush, ye have been dearer to me than anv thin?? else on earth. Do, Norah, for the sake of our your hearts' love, do think if theres no way to win yer motner over, ii ye'd take me without her leave, sure it's nothing I'd care for the loss of thousauds. let alone what ye've got. Dearest Norah, think; that: since you'll do nothing witnout tier consent, do think -for once be serious. and don't laugh." "I'm not going to laugh, Morris ;" replied the little maid at last, after a very long pause, "I've got a wise thought in my head for once. His reverence, your uncle, you say spoke to father to speak to mother about it? I wonder (and he a priest) that he hadn't more sense! Sure, mother was the man; but I've got a wise thought, good jiight, dear Morns; good night." v . ' The last sprang lightly over the fence in to her own garden, leaving Jier lover perdu at the other side, without possessing an idea of what her 'wise thought' might be. When she entered the kilchen, matters were going en as usual her mother bustling in style, and as cross 'as a bag ol weasels.' Jack Clary,' said she, addressing herself to her husband, who sat quietly in the chim ney corner smoking his 'doodeen,' 'it's well ye've got a wife who knows what's what! God help me! I've little good of a husband barring the name! Are you sure black Nell's in the stable?' . The spouse nodded. 'The cow a calf had they fresh straw?' Another nod. 'Bad cess to ye, can't ye use yertongue, and answer a civil question?' continued the lady ' - ,',My dear,1 he replied, 'sure one like you has cnytigh talk for ten.' This very just observation was, like most truths, so disagreeable, that a severe storm wonld have followed, had not Norah stepped up. to her father and whispered in his ear, 'I don't think the stable door is fastened.' Mrs. Clary caught the sound, and in no gentle terms ordered her husband to attend to the comforts of black Nell. - 'I'll go wiih fathei myself and see,' said Norah. , 'That's like my own child, always careful,1 observed the mother, as the lather and daugh ter closed the door. -'Dear father,' began Norah, it isn't alto gether about the stable I wanted ye, but but but the priest said something to you to-day about-! Morris Donnovaur 'Ye3, darfing, and about yerself, my sweet Nory.' 'Did ye speak to mother about it?' 'No, darling, she's been so cross all day. Sure I go through a dale for peace and quiet ness. If I was like other men, and got drunk and wasted, it might be in rason; but As to Morris, she was very fond of the boy till she turned like sour milk all in a rainute. I'm afraid even the priesl'U get no good of her.1 ,a " 'Father dear lathe,' said Norah, 'suppose ye were to say nothing about it good or bad and just pretend to take a sudden dislike to Morris, and let the priest speak' to her. him self, she'd come round.' - ' - Out of sheer opposition to me, eh?''- --'Yes.' ' - ' 'And let her gain the day then? that would be cowardly,'replied the farmer draw ing himself up. 'No I wonV . ; 'Father, dear, you don't understand,' said the cunning lass, 'sure ye're for Mortis; and when we are, that is if I mean,' she continued, and luckly the twilight conceal her blushes 'if that took place its you thai will have yer own way.' "True for ye, Norry, my girl, true for you; I never thought of that before !" at.d pleased with the idea of tricking his wife, the old raan capered for joy. 'But slay a while stay ; aisy, aisy ; he recommenced, 'how am I to manage?' 'Leave it to me, dear father leave it all tome!' exclaimed the animated girl; 'only pluck up a spirit, and whenever Morris name is mentioned, abuse him but not with all yer heart, father only from the teeth out." When they re-entered, the fresh-boiled po tatoes sent a warm curling steam to the very rafters of the lofty kitchen ; ihey were poured out in a large wicker dish, and on the top of the pile rested a plate of coarse while salt; noggins of buttermilk were filled on the dres ser; and on a small round table a cloth was spread and some dell plates awaiting ihe more delicate repast which the farmer's wife was herself preparing." 'What's for supper, mother?' inquired No rah, as she drew her wheel towards her, and employed her fairy foot in whirling it round. 'Plaguy snipeens,' she replied;. bitso'bog chickens, that you've always such a fany for. Barney Leary kilt them himself. 'So I did, said Barney, grinning; and that slick with a hook of Morris Donovan's is the finest thing in the world for knocking 'em down. 'If Morris Donovan's stick touched them, they shant come here,' said the father, strik ing the poor little table such a blow with his clenched hand as to make not only it but Mrs. Clan jump- And why so, pray?' asked the dame. 'Because nothing of Morris let alone Mor ris himself, shall come into the house," re plied Clary; 'he's not to my liking any how, and there's no good in his bothering here af ter what he won't get. Excellent!: thought Norah. "Lord save us!' ejaculated Mrs. Clary, as sheplaced the grilled snipes on the table, 'what's come to the man?' Without heedaig his resolution, she was proceeding to distri bute the savoury birdeen when, to her aston ishment, her usually tame husband threw the dish and its contents into the flames; the good woman stood aghast. The calm, how ever,' was not of long duration. She soon rallied and commenced hostilities. "How dare ye, ye spalpeen, throw away anyo'God's mate after that fashion and 1 to the fore? What do ye mane, I say?" "I mane, that nothing touched by Mor. Donovan shall come under this roof: and if I catch that girl of mine looking at the same side ol the road t hat he walks on, I'll fear the eyes out o' her head, and send her to a nun nery! "You will? And dare you say that to my face, to a child o' mine! You will will ye? we'll see, my boy! I'll tell ye what, if I like, Monis Donovan shall come into this house; and what's more, be master of this house, and that's what you never had the heart to be yet, ye poor ould snail !" So say ing; Mrs. "Clary endeavored to rescue" from the fire the hissing remains of the 'burning snipes. Norah attempted to assist her moth- . er; but Clary, lifting her, up, somewhat after the fashion of an angel raising a golden" wren with it claw, fairly put her out of the kitch en. This was the signal for fresh hostilities. Mrs. Clary stormed and stamped ; and Mrs. Clary persisted in abusing not only Morris, but Morris' uncle, Father Donovan, until at last the farmer's helpmate swore, ay, and roundly too, by cross and saint, thai, before the next sunset, Norah Clary should be No rah Donovan. I wish you could have seen Norry's eye dancing with joy and exultation, : as it peeped through the ktchhole; it spark led more brightly than the richest diamond in our monarch's crown, for it was filled with hope and love. ' The next morning before the sun was ful- ly up, he was.throwing his early beams ovei the glowing cheeks of Norah Clary; for her wise thought had prospered, and she was ; hastening to the trysling, where she generally met Morn's Donovan. I don't know how it is but the moment the, course of love runs smooth, it becomes very uninteresting, except to the parties concerned. ' So it is now left forme only to say, that the maiden, aftera due and proper time consumed in teazing and tantalizing her intended, told him her saucy plan, and its result. And the lover hastened, upon the wings of love, (which I beg my rea dersclearly to understand ate swifter and stronger .in Ireland than in any other country) to tell the priest, of. the arrangement, well knowing that his reverence loved his nephew . . and neice that was to be (to say nothing ot 'J"' the wedding supper, and profits arrising therefrom) too well, not to aid their merry jest. - . . -. t ; What bustle) what preparation, what danc- mg gave the country folks enough to (alk a- . bout during the happy Christmas holidays, f cannot describe. -Jl'he bride of course look ed lovely, and sheepish; and the bridegroom but bridegrooms are alwuys uninteresting. One fact, however, is worth recording. When Father Donovan concluded the cerremony, before the bridal kiss had passed, Farmer Clary without any reason that his wife could discover most indecorously sprung up, seiz-. ed a shillelah of stout oak, and whirling it ra pidly over his head, shouted, "Carry me out! by the powers she's beat! we've won the day ould Ireland forever! Success, boys! she's beat ! she's beat !" The priest loo, seemed vastly to enjoy this extemporaneous effusion, - " and even the bride laughed outright. Wheth- -er the good wife discovered the plot or not, I never heard; but of this I am certaiu, that the joyous Norah never had reason to repent her wise thouffht. ' -' ' - fj7 The subjoined letter which w copy from the N. O. Picayune of Che Clh ult. gives a fearful picture of organized crime, and of de pravity which sets all the laws of the land at de fiance. Paducah, Ky., July 23, 1845. It has lately come to light, that one of the most extensive and thoroughly organised bands of outlaws that have yet been banded together rince the days ol Murrell and his gang, have their haunts in the adjacent countries in Illinois whence they sally forth to this State, and pans of Tennessee, Mississippi, and. Missouri, upon their errands of crime. The immediate causa ol the discovery of this horde of robbers, mur ders, counterfeiters and horse thcives, was the sudden disappearance of a man named Davi?, who resided in Christian county, in this State. Two men arrived at Davis's house a few weeks ago, with a deed conveying to them the whole of his properly, consisting of a farm, negroes and stock. They turned he family out of th fatinstead, had trie conveyance rcgulatly recor ded, and look quiet possession of the premises. The disappearance ol Davis caused a widespread suspicion of foul play. The people of Chfisiiart county met in public assembly, and adopted res olutions designed to ferret out the mystery. They divided themselves intocompanies and sev eral hundred persons, in small squada, are scour ing the county on horseback, to secure the safe ty of ihe country. - A tew days ago a partely of citizens of Chris tian county took up a suspicious fellow, carried hinvto the woods, tied him to a'tree, and threat ened to whip h i in to death if he did not diseloso to them ihe secret of Da vis's absence. The man alter protesting for along time h'S ignorance the subject, became alarmed for his life, and re vealed ihe whole circumstances of his robbery and murder It appeared that in making a short excursion from his house, he fell in wtih a man named Pennington (who is the ringleader of the gang) and one or.two others of his party. Pen nington first got Davis drnnk; he then, by one chicanery or another, got him to sign a deed con veying loliiin his property as above mentioned. To prevent all trouble hereafter, Davis was de- - spacbed, and his body hid away iu a cave. and. reiiuington ther took possession of hia effects Before the recovery of the body of Davis, Pen nington made his escape from Kentucky, and is said to be at the house of a member of his gang. named Young L.inn on tha Illinois side ol the river, six miles fro.n opposite this place. Yes terday a small detachment of tha Christian county patrol arrived hero. .They ascertained, that a notorious member of the gang, a fellow named Gray, was at- a little village in Illinois twelve iiiiles below Paducah A number of tha. citizens voluntee'ed lo cross- the river and assist' in capturing Gray. This they effected, and last -evenum the party returned with the outlaw safely secured. Whilst I write, efforts are be. ing made to raise a company iarge enough to ga after Pennigton to-nighi The band have an ex tensive counterfeitingestablishment in Penning ton's vicinity, and have so laid the country im mediately around under contributions, and have disposed themselves about in such an advanta geous manner, as to make all expedition of the kind from auother State, one of peril and doubt ful success. It is lobe hoped that the party will be made up. and that success will attend, their public spirited enterprise The fellow who revealed the murder: of Dnvigv gave inaiist of some eighty persons, whom he -named, and denounced aa members ol the gang. In scouring tbe country, the citizens have come to the knowledge of the preparation of -many, most diabolical acts by these men. These were generally committed in out-of-the-way places and obscure neighborhoods, where they might not havp coma to light but for the general ex citement that now prevails in the countries a bove this town. , - , The contractors on the Illinois and Michi gan canal advertise for 3,000 laborers.
