Jud kin's and Nathan Shepherd's Specific Ointment. npHE above ointment is offered to the Jl ublic as a safe and certain remedy for obstinate diseases, some of which have long baffled the skill of medical sci ence : 1st. White Swellings of every descrip tion. 2d. Sore Legs and Ulcers of long stand ing. 3d. Scirrus or Glandular Tumors, par ticularly those hardened tumors in wo men’s breasts which ofttimes terminate in ulcerated cancers. 4th. Felons, or what some people know by the name of Catarrhs, of every des cription. 5th. Rheumatic Pains, of the joints. 6th. Sprains and Bruises of every des cription, or in whatever part situate. 7th. Tetters ol all kinds. In this com plaint the patient, in applying the oint ment, must keep the part out of water. 8th. Chilblains, or parts affected by frost. 9th. j\cvo Cut Wounds. It is also one. of the best remedies for Burns and Sccclds. It eases’the pain and draws the fire out in .a short time. For Inflamed, Women’s Breasts & Glan dular Swellings it is superior to any me dicine yet known to the medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial applica tions, (as it does not contain the smallest atom of any preparations of that mine ral,) because it does not lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold. This ointment has cured sores of many years standing. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the external sore, in consequence of bones becoming carious or rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries, increase the quantity of the dis charge, remove the offensive smell, and ease the pain. It cures the worst Felons or Whitlow's on an application of 48 hours. Rheumatisms which have stood so long as to become systematic disorder, require medicine to be taken inwardly to remove them entirely. But in most common ca ses, by applying this ointment externally, as directed, it will give relief. And even in old people, whose pains have been of longer standing, it will often ease the pain. May 22. Fresh Burnt Lime. THE Subscriber has for sale, from 1000 tol 500 bushels of excellent fresh burnt LIME, at the Old Furnace, near Harpers-Ferry. Application to be made to MATHIAS SLEYH, Sen. June 19. LATE FROM EUROPE. NEW-YORK, JUNE 14. By the arrival of the Panthea at this port, in 35 days from Liverpool, we have received our London files to the 6th of May, inclusivel The additional intelli gence they communicate respecting the affairs of the continent is of a pacific cha racter. What little is of importance will be found in our extracts. In the ontish House of Commons, Sin James Mackintosh inquired of the Mini ster, inter alia, whether the government had formally acknowledged the indepen dence of that portion of South America which formerly belonged to Spain; or whether it had entered into any regular intercourse or correspondence with them* which would imply such a recognition : and if not, whether it was in the contemn plation of government to do either? The Marquis of Londonderry replied. —To that part of it which inquired whe ther we had entered into such negotia tion or correspondence with them as would imply a recognition, he would an swer in the negative. In whatever com munications we had with those govern ments we had treated them as govern ments de facto.—-We looked upon the parties at war in that quarter as belliger ents ; we respected their rights as such, and our naval force in the adjoining seas did not interfere with their rights of blockade.—As to commercial intercourse with them, it would be found to be pro vided for by the bill of his right honoura ble friend (Mr. F. Robinson) on the sub ject of foreign trade. With regard to the more general question, he hoped go vernment would not be called upon for any statement, until it had more full informa tion than it yet possessed on the subject. The recognition of the independence of those states by the government of the United States was not then known as fact, although the recommendation of that measure by the President had been re ceived. On a motion of Lord Normanby, in the House of Commons, to abolish the office of one of the Post-masters General, the Ministry were left in a minority in a full house—for the motion 216, against it 201. A new bargain was about to be conclud ed between the government and the Bank of England, by which the charter of the latter was to be extended ten years, in consideration of a surrender of that por tion ol it which restricts to 6 the number of partners in any private banking con cern in England. In the sitting of the 17th, the Spanish Cortes elected the Junta for the protection of the liberty of the press. An eminent literary character, Don Manuel Jose Quin tana, was placed at the head of the list, having obtained the greatest number of votes. A debate took place in the sitting of the 19th on a proposition referring the penal code, as agreed to by the late extra ordinary Cortes, to the King for his sanc tion. This question was decided in a manner favourable to the views of the Ministry; the division being 69 in favour of the prop sition, and 49 against it. A letter from Madrid of the 23d, pub lished in the Constitutionel, states that the Cortes had adopted the preliminary project presented by the transmarine com mittee, relative to the provinces of Spa nish America, the independence of which is established de facto, having for its ob ject to invite the government to adopt, in concert with the council of state, the most suitable measures for promptly establish ing negotiations with these provinces. On Thursday, 2d May, a duel was fought between the Dukes of Bedford and Buckingham, accompanied by Lord Ly nedoch and Sir W. Williams Wynn, in consequence of words used by the forme? at the Bedfordshire county meeting. Both parties fired together at a distance of twelve paces, on a word given, but with out effect; when the Duke of Bucking ham, observing that the Duke of Bedford fired into the air, advanced to him, and remarking that for that reason the thing could go no further, said, “ My Lord Duke, you are the last man l wish to quarrel with ; but you must be aware that a public man’s life is not worth preserve ing unless with honour.” Upon which the Duke of Bedford declared, “Upon his honour, that he meant no personal of fence to the Duke of Buckingham, nor to impute to him any bad or corrupt motive whatever.” The parties then shook hands, and the whole business was terminated satisfactorily. The state of Ireland is most wretched. The extract we have made shows the ex tent of distress prevailing there. The William, Laird, sailed from Ab erdeen for New-York on the 10th of Nov. and has not since been heard of. The Andes, Fleming from Lisbon fc&?
