DIED,
In Lancaster, (Pa.) on the 14th inst., James
Horxus, Esq. the oldest and one of the most [
wninent members of the Lancaster Bar. Mr.;
Hopkins had attained an age when, in the com-1
■ion course of events, it was but natural to
suppose that the fell destroyer would not much
longer withhold the demand w hich, sooner or
later, he ever so surely makes. But the manner
and time of his death were, nevertheless, pecu
liar and striking. Atrial, of great interest and
importance, had been progressing for nearly
two weeks, in which Mr. Hopkins was the lead
ing counsel for the plaintiff. On Thursday af
ternoon, just as Mr. Buchanan, who was one of
the counsel for the defendants, had risen to ad
dress the jury, he was interrupted by Mr. Hop-1
kins, who expressed a desire to read to the court
and jury certain authorities upon which, among
others, he said, he intended to rely. Mr. Bu- •
chanan gave way; but Mr. Hopkins, after a few
incoherent remarks was unable to find the au
thorities, and resumed his seat.
There can be no doubt that the fatal inroads
of disease were then commencing; lor, a short
time after he was discovered to be apparently
asleep in his chair. There was nothing extra
ordinary in this, and the first alarm w hich com
municated itself, was on the part of one of his
colleagues, who, after having made several at
tempts to arouse him from his supposed slum
ber, expressd his apprehension of something
serious to the Court, when, upon examination, j
it wa* discovered that his fears were but too well
founded.
He was immediately carried home in a chair,
medical aid called in, and bleeding promptly
resorted to—but in vain—the ravages of disease
baffled the energies of science and skill, and he
lingered on in a nearly unbroken lethargy, un
til about nine o’clock of the succeeding Sunday
mornine.
On Thursday last, Aaron Van Coble, an old
rewdent, and a very industrious, useful, and
worthy citizen of Washington.

Schooner Alexandria, Britton, hence at New
York 18th.
Memoranda.—The following extract of a let
ter from Capt. Lambert, of the brig May Dacre,
to the owners, gives a particular account of the
disasters which befel the vessel on her passage
from Boston to Valparaiso:
Valparaiso, June 5th, 1834.
Gentlemen—After a long and very unfortu
nate’ passage of 125 days, 1 have, through God’s
mercy, been peimitted to arrive here in safety,
but with the good brig May Dacre very much
shattered, for since 1 last wrote you we have
been torn to pieces by lightning, the particulars
of which are as follows:—On the 25th of March,
while in latitude of betwixt the latitude of 34
and 42, 8. and Ion. between 51 and 52, W. we
had a most gloomy, stormy night, with much
forked lightning. At 6 o’clock in the morning,
the lightning struck our main top-gallant mast
head, stove that into splinters, descended down
the topmast bet weed the eye of the lower rig
ging and mast to the deck, where it exploded
with a most tremendous report—it ripped up the
deck amidships, the partners and comins of the
mast, and went into the hold, where the electrie
fluid separated again, one part flying aft through
the cabin door, staving every thing in pieces in
its course, but the other most fatal passpd out
through the brig’s side, close to the water’s edge,
starting on all the bends amidships, and a great
quantity of the copper, leaving the brig on fire
inside, and filled with sulpher smoke. Who can
attempt to describe the appearance of things
upon deck? If I was to write forever, I could
not give you an idea of it—there was a total
wreck over head, the ship on fire below, and
said to be sinking; however, wc did not despair,
but used every exertion, and soon succeeded in
extinguishing the fire before it had done much
damage. But had it taken the ten barrels of al
cohol, which it went within three inches of, we
should all have been launched into eternity be
fore we had time to make our peace with God
or man. A great quantity of water went into
the hole before we could get the rent stopped,
for we had to stop the hole outside as well as
as we could, just to keep her from sinking—in
doing which, we stove our surf boat, but you
may depend we wrere not idle during the whole
of that day till we cleared the wreck, and se
cured the mainmast so that we could carry a
whole maintopsail in light wind. A Her getting
over the disaster, in a measure, and we scratch
ing along as well as we could, (lor we could
piake but poor headway with a very lame side,
crippled mainmast, and the copper dragging a
cat by the tail, if I may be allowed the expres
sion.) we fell in with on the 1st of Apiil, ano
ther very dangerous impediment, islands of ice,
which we did not get clear of for six days, part
of the time the wind blowing a violent gale, and
and we completetely surrounded by ice; but we
had the good luck not to strike any of it.
At length, after encountering all these difficul
ties and manv other smaller ones, we entered
the Straits of Magellan, 95 days from Boston.—
It being the worst season of the year, we had
verv bad weather through the Stiaits. On the
1st of May, while lying in a snug harbor, dur
ing a gale of wind, we were attacked by the
Terra del Fucgo Indians, but we soon silenced
them with our cannonades and muskets, for we
were prepared, having been informed by the
captain of a sealing schooner, that they had
tried to take the Avon; he also informed us that
the Avon had lost both of her cables and anch
ors, but was fortunate in getting an anchor out
of a Baltimore schooner, and succeeded in get
ting through the Straits. I came out of the
Straits with a fine breeze, but it was not long
before we met with our old companions, gales
of wind and heavy seas. While in the Straits
we had almost continued rain and snow, and
taking altogether, our brig looks like the picture
of distress. She is not only stove to pieces, but
the paint is washed off. what there is left whole,
and the sea has washed her trail boards off her
head. This being the first port where we could
repair, I made for it with all might, and arrived
here on the 24th. The brig’now is in an advanced
state of forwardness as regards her repairs. I
shall proceed as fast as possible, and the mo
ment my cargo is replaced, proceed on my
voyage. Next opportunity you shall receive
my protest and accounts. My carpenter and
Elijah Do we, hare deserted me. Hoping soon
to bt able to forwatd you all the particulars,
I am your humble serv’L

PURIFIED BEAR’S OIL.
AMONG the many articles offered to thenub
fic for the growth and preservation of the
hair, none seem to have given so much satisfac
tion as the Purified Bear’s Oil, which has been
known, in many instances, to restore the hair on
heads which have been bald for years; it also pre
vents the hair from falling out, and quickly re
stores it when lost from sickness, or any other
cause. It gives to the most stubborn lock3 a
strong, glossy and lasting curl, removes the
dandriff, which often impedes the growth of the
hair, causing head ache, &c.
The Bear’s Oil is far superior to Antique or
Macassar Oils, which, being of vegetable origin,
soon make the hair hard and crisp, while ani
mal oils, on the contrary, make it soft and beau
tiful. Of the latter class, the Bear’s Oil, being
more penetrating, is, of course, preferred. Mo
thers will find it excellent for the heads of their
children, and to gentlemen of fashion it is re
commended for the growth of whiskers. When
used, it should be well rubbed into the roots of
the hair with a penetrating hair-brush, which
excites also a healthy action in the skin; the
hair should be well oiled every other day, be
fore combing it. Being highly purified, and
pleasantly perfumed, it w’ill be found decidedly
superior to any other article for constant use in
dressing the hair. Price 25 cents per bottle.
