Burns, for a long time past suspected his wife of
iofidelity. Unwilling to act hastily io the matter,
• but being strongly convinced that bis suspicions
were well founded, he reeolved to take measures
to ascertain certainly the whole troth. To do
this, says the Doylestown Democrat, from which
paper we gain these particulars, he gave out that
He was going from home, and did not expect to
return soon.
lie, however, came home, some time in the
night, entered the house and proceeded to bis
room, where his suspicions were confirmed by
finding the deceased there, aud the marriage
bed prostituted to the vilest passions. He im
mediately seized a club and beat out the brains
of the seducer of bis wife, the destroyer of his
Happiness, as he lay in the bed. This done, with
the same club he beat his abandoned wife so se
verelr that she died in a few hours after.
Burns immediately gave himself up, and was*
committed to prison, in Flemln^too, N. J.
where he now awaits histtial. When the de
cease of his wife was mentioned to him, he ex
pressed the highest satisfaction, stating that it
was exactly what he desired.—Phil. Gaz.
The ftidowof Bums.—The Dumfries Chron
jcle mentions that the relict of Burns is tailoring
under the affects of a second paralysis, and rep
resents her as being in a very feeble and exhaus
ted state. She has continued, during a long
period of her widowhood, to reside in the same
house in which lived and died the poet, and dur
ing the whole time has been remarkable for her
love of tranquil life, and the pleasures of a
secluded home.
Jnr Party.—The calender of Antics, we
thought, was quite full when that of Anti-Tobac
ro Societv was added to the list} but it appears
from the "following, that another is added to the
it am her. The Boston Commercial Gazette,
says: “ There is a strong Anti-Avery party at
the Upper Kalla. W'e hear they intend run
ning a candidate for Congress in opposition to
tiro. Dearborn.
Health of the North.— The people of Cana
da, who guttered ao dreadfully from the pesti
lence last season, are now, fortunately, free
from any svmptnms of its return. The Montre
al Gazette’ of the 25th, contains the following
information, regarding the health of that city.
“Since Saturday last, we have enjoyed a very
necessary compensation for the late extraordi
nary colil and wet weather. The average
range of the thermometer has been at 80, and
the heat, consequently, very oppressive. The
accounts, from all parts of the country, represent
the harvest as having recovered beyond all ex
pectation; and we are happy to say, that the
health of Montreal was never more excellent.
,TJr. Carson.—The Rutherford, N. C. Specta
tor contains a letter from Mr. S. P. Carson, who
is very indignant at a prevailing report, circulat
ed by William Roane, E«.q. that the leading nnl
litiers were solicitous to keep up an excitement
lor the purpose of establishing a Southern con
federacy, and depended upon Mr Carson to bring
North Carolina into their schemes. “To this
charge,” says M'- C. “ I give the lie direct.”
Mr. Roane ha* also given the following certifi
“ William Roane states that he is fully satis
fied on conversing with the Honorable Samuel
P. Carson, that he has no idea that the course he
is taking as a politician, is calculated to justify
or encourage the hotheads of the South in any
madcap scheme as to a Southern confederacy;
but they have made use of his name without his
knowledge or consent. Wm. Roane
“Asheville, July 1st, 1833.”
Robert Potter.—Our readers cannot have for
gotten the outrage perpetrated, a year or two ago,
by Robert Potter, then a member of Congress
from North Carolina, on the persons of the Rev.
Mr. Taylor and a young man in Granville coun
ty, in that State. * We have not heard of him
for some time, and had almost forgotten him, un
til he was recalled to our notice by the following
paragraph in the Raleigh Register:
“ Understanding that contradictory rumors are
in circulation, in the county of Granville, with
respect to the determination of the Governor, to
grant or refuse the application of Robert Potter
for a pardon, in case he shall be elected to the
Legislature from the county of Granville, we
have taken pains to ascertain the fact, and are
authorized to state that the Governor, from ob
\ious motives of propriety, has forborne the ex
prcwion of his determination oo the subject, tie
doubtless entertains the opinion, that the only pro
per time to decide upon the merits of such an
application, will be, when it shall be presented
tor his consideration.”
Sea Serpent.—The sloop Fame, of Nantucket,
" haling for Sea Serpents, came into Boston on
Tuesday morning, from an*unsuccessfut cruise.
The Fame left Nantucket on Saturday last man
ned with three boots crews, all old and experi
enced whalemen, armed with whaling apparatus
ol every variety. She is victualled fur a month's
cruise. ___
Teentos, N. J. July Slst.
To the Editors of the Philadelphia Gazette.—
The Court of Appeals is still occupied in hear
ing the Quaker cause.—Mr. Wall was arguing
the question on behalf of the Hicksites, through
the whole of to day, and will probably fioish by
to-morrow evening. Mr. W. is forcible and elo
quent. He occupied this morning in showing
th* analogs between the conduct and doing* of
the Orthodox Friends and those who were asao
cuted with Mr. Keith, who seceded from the
Quakers, in their early settlement. This after
noon, was taken up reviewing the decision of Judge
Brake. We never saw so many Quakers and
Quaker Books in a Court House before.— Diere
i* a great number of spectators, among whom are
many ladies. Yours, «c.
The expense to the town of Salem, iucur
red by the reception of President Jackson, was
about 1600 dollars. The expense incurred by
the city of Boston, in receiving and entertain
ing the President, we have heard stated at twelve
or fifteen thousand dollars. The expense to the
State waa several thousand dollars more: the
charge for the collation at the State House was
about $2,200. It should be mentioned, to the ere-1
4>t of the parties concerned, that it cost a hand-1

| tome tom to feed end moisten the state and muni*
ctpal committies, after the President left town.
Every thing was coodnctsd on the most libsrat
scale in this qnartsr. This is as it should be—

Just received from the manufactory of Wm. Gray «
Gimklets — The yankees art in a fair way (o
destroy John Boll’s gimblet trade in tbia country.
The new twiat gimblet is almost as much superi
or to the old English gimblets, as the screw an
ger is to the old pod aager.
There is a gimblet factory at West Whatley,
which employs 15 hands, about half of them fe
males, aod manufactures 25 gross per week. The
•teel is "imported from England in round rods; the
handles are turned out in the vicinity. There is
a gimblet factory in Buckland and one in the
north part of Franklin county, and in Kean N.
H. and one in Connecticut.
Howard Street /lour.—The receipts of new
flour are a> yet very limited, and thus far there
appears to be but little if any difference in prices
between new crop flour and fresh ground of old
I wheat. The sales from stores are in moderate
I parcels of fresh ground, at 86,12*. For smaller
(retail) lots, 86,25 are occasionally paid. The
wagon price of fresh flour is very generally 86,
although we observe that some of the dealers
pay a fraction more for that made of new wheat.
City AHUs Flour.—Sales of parcels of fresh
ground, of new and old wheat, were made at the
beginning of the week at 86,374- Yesterday
sales were made at 86,25-and 6,31*, and to-day
the same price.
Susquehanna Flour.—At the beginning of the
week a parcel of fresh ground, in the best order,
was sold at 86,25. Parcels of the same descrip
tion would command the same price to day. We
Suote 86 a 864, according to freshness and con
Wheat.—The supplies of the new crop were
quite fair at the commencement of the week, and
the sales of the best reds ranged from 81 16 to
l 19 per bushel. Since then the supplies hive
been moderate, and the tales of the best parcels
of red have generally ranged from 1 15 to 1 18.
These rates continue to prevail to-day, for par
cels of this description, and we auote according
ly. Sales of common to good reds at 110 a 1 15.
Two parcels or prime, nmchjnea real were wuen
to day at l 20 per bushel—but the fair range of
the market, at we have already intimated, is 1 15
to 1 18 for good to best parcels. On Monday,
sales of good white were made at 1 25, and one
parcel of prime, family flour, at 1 30. To day
a parcel of prime, family flour white, machined,
was sold at 1 25 per bushel. A parcel or two, of
good white, not clear of garlic, was sold at
1 18.
Corn.—Sales of pare* Is of white have ranged
throughout the week, at 60 a 63 cents, as in qua
lity. Sales of good yellow at 64 a 65 cents.—
We quote the same prices to-day, with a limited
Bye.— Sales of parcels of new at 66 cents per
bushal, which is now the fair quotation.
Oats—Hive advanced a trifle, iu consequence
of a good demand for shipment coastwise. Good
parcels new are worth 30 cents and old 32
cents per bushel.

THIS Institution will be re-opened on the 3d of the
9ih month, (September); and the Eatablialiment
having been considerably enlarged during the past
yes', there will be accommodation for an additional
number of Boarding Students.
The branches taught in the Institution are the La
tin, Greek and French Languages, and every part of
a complete English Education, including all the branch
es of Msthemstics, Natural and Mental Philosophy,
Chemistry, Mineralogy, Ac
Full courses of Lectures are delivered to the atu -
dents on Natural Philosophy and Chemistry, in which
the principles oftheae sciences are illustrated by a good
collection of philosophical and chemical apparatus.—
The students have the free use of a Cabinet of Mine
rals, and of a Library containing upwards of five hund
red volumes of well selected works of History, Biogra
phy, Philosophy, Poetry, Ac
In teaching every subject, particular care is taken
that the students understand the prineiplet of the sci
ences they are studying; they are then able to apply
these principles to any particular cases, une meins
adopted for accomplishing this, is, to have the students
each day in clasaes, to explain every part of the per
formances of the preceding day; by which they not on
ly become more careful, when pursuing their studies,
to impress the principles upon their minds, that they
may be able to explain them when called upon, but the
daily exercise of their reasoning faculties, in explain
ing principles and conducting mathematical investiga
tion*, has a great tendency to strengthen aud expand
the mind—the great end of Education.
The students are treated in all respects as a part of
the family of the subscriber. They are expected regu
larly to attend some place of Worship, at the discre
tion of their parents or guardians, on the first day of
the week; not to go in the water, on it, or on the ice,
without permission, and the necessary attention to pre
serve them from danger; and every care ia taken to
guard their morals, promote their comfort, and effect
their real improvement

all the branches except French and Drawing, 140 dol
lars a year, each quarter payable in advance; the quar
ter consisting of 12 weeks. When the washing for a

ry to make a charge for the excess, at the rate of fifty
cent* per dozen. French and Drawing, each 6 dollars
a quarter, extra Heading books, pens, ink, pencils,
tie 50 cent* per quarter Other books used in the
School furnished, if required, at the store prices; but
