I n 1 hnU "". 1 n Fever, dtr.
Dr lJu \ al—Dear Sir: I was promptly relieved, a
feu- years ago, of a violent attack of something like the
cholera, by taking a larze dose of your Anti-Spasmod
ic. Since that time I have frequently witnessed its
good eflects in other cases. About six weeks ago I was
suffering exceedingly from an attack of Third-day
Ague and Fever. It had been increasing in severity
for nearly a month. I determined to try your Anti-
Spasmodic, and accordingly took a large dose of it iust
before the tune for the chill. It produced over the
whole system a peculiar sensation of warmth, which
was kept up by repeating the dose once or twice at
intervals of two hours. Though necessarily exposed
since, I have felt no return of chill. I feel CONFIDENT
in recommending your medicine.
Very sincerely yours,
King \\ illiaui, Julv, 1852.
In < r;»mu% «>y»rotery, and Si>i<!pr
Dr Du Val—Dear Sir : I have administered your Fa
mily Anti-Spasmodic in several violent attarks of
cramp and dysentery. I have npplied it externally to
the bite of a snider, when ti ere Was an enormous en
largement of the limb, and intense pain—in all with
fierfect success. I have sold a great deal of it in this
neighborhood, and as far as I know, it has given univer
sal satisfaction. All who have tested it seem to think
it has no equal as a family medicine. I deem it due to
say that in most of the instances alluded to above, va
rious remedies were ust-d without eflect.

Whether the Mortnona do or do not allow
polygamy, has been a mooted question The
following letter from a Wisconsin overland
traveller, the Milwaukie News says, has been
furnished for publication to that paper, and
may be relied on :
# # _ "Salt Lake City, July 26.
estfrday Orson Pratt, one of the
aiurroon apostles, gave us quite a sensible ser
mon. urigham \ oung is the Prophet, Seer,
Keyelator, and head of the Church. He is
assisted by two Councillors, twelve apostle?,
and eighteen Bishops. The prophet and Go

who came and went in a large elegant open
carnage. He has living with him iu the citv,

separate furnished apartment, and spins, sews,
weaves, &.C., Jtc.
1 he person I board with has two wives.—
Dr. Richards, a councillor, has six, and all
ot them goodlooking, healthy women. Thus
you see polygamy is openly allowed and
supported by these Mormons. A man, having
a right to ae many wives as he can find and
support, takes a fancy, goes to a justice and
swears he is able to support her, and the
marriage comes off with due ceremony—and
so it goes on, as he grows richer, without
"There are warm and hot springs here, the
last at boiling heat. Salt is manufactured
from the lake water, which yields one bowl of
salt from three of water. There are also
mines of coal and iron. Lumber is scarce,

mostly pretty, and the little legitimates, whom
the people here call young prophets, are all

Extensive Steamboat Disasters.—The
Steamer Buckeye State, on Saturday, brought
intelligence of the following steamboat acci
dents :

land, with o feet wuter in her hold.
The Tuscarora swung against the Royal

Criminal Trials.—The jury in the case
of Matthew Brogy—tried for rape, as princi
pal and accessory—being unable to agree,
were discharged by th« Judge on Saturday
evening. It is understood that five of the
jury were for acquittal and seven for cenvic
tion. The diffi :ulty was as to identification.
McTiger and Hallon are now on trial togeth
er; the first indicted as principal and accesso
ry and the latter as accessory, in the same
crime.—Staunton Spect.
North Carolina Matters.—A Raleigh
correspondent of the Wilmington Journal
states that an attempt km made in the North
Carolina Senate on the 20th instant, to elect a
United States Senator. Mr. Dobbin, the nomi
nee of the Democratic Caucus, lacked nine
vote* of being elected. It was supposed that
.-omeof the mora stubborn Senators would yield
their preferences, and vote for Mr. D. on the
nest trial.
The same correspondent also sa\a:
Prof. Hale, who has figured some Utile in
this city, as a scientific gentleman, professing
Electro Biology, figured "more so," at the
Ynrbrough House a few days since, clande*
tinely having ia his charge a Uisa Adeline
Mitchell, who he represented as tomebody go
ing to Petersburg, under his charge, for the
purpose of receiving a polished education.-—
They went on, and the last Petersburg Eipreas
shows the Professor off to considerable disad
vantage. He has victimized some innocent
and unsuspecting female, no doubt. I never
could reconcile them large pewter eyes of this
distinguished Biologist.
Railroad Accidest —On Wednesday
morning, as the eipress train on thaSasque
hanna railroad was approaching Baltimore,
the locomotive came in contact with a cow.—
The locomotive and tender became discon
nected and escaped without injury; but three
large passenger cars were thrown off the track,
and ran lapidiy on the brink of a deep preci
pice to the falls. When all the passengers
had given theiwelves up for lost, the fore
most car came in contact with a telegraph
pole, which prevented the car from tilting over
into tliestream, in which case, many must have
been kilted. -
