then stood out. Now, there was an old Spanish
Itlrv ashore, which commanded the whole
hav-6 and as soon as we had landed the prison
bay,tu "d_d rascals ran to that battery, man
nS £ and opened upon us in a fine style. That
S': niease old Stewart over well,and he swore
if h,e,got C|T °J
♦hp English Beet outside, he would come back
ind blow those fellows in the air.
‘Now the harbor of Porto Prava has a small,
h„t hifih island at its mouth, so that there are
two channels of entrance; and as the fog was
Iprv thick, the English fleet came in at one, as
p walked out at the other; Dut they soon found
Their mistake, and came out again before we
get any kind of start, and gave chace.
Thev were five sail:—two seventy-fours, one
riree and two fifty gun frigates. We could not
.“/all that; they carried too many guns for
l and .e crawled all sail to get away, We
Ttin found that if our prizes could keep with us,
we could run the English squadron hull down in
tVo hours, but there was the pinch; they were
I ,,K Ka,aVV sailers,especially the Levant, and no
o“ Ironsides, or the English fleet el
ther so we had to shorten sail, to allow them to
S in company, and going so, Johnny Bull
the commodore showed them a N an
k ‘,rick He ordered the Cyane and Levant
ti; carry on every thing they could show and
then he7 coolly dropped astern of them, and
backed his maintopsail, to make the Englishmen
think he intended to fight the whole bunch of
them so that they would shorten sail and the
Tvane and Levant could get away; and then
he would brace up again; and walk right away
for he knew that none of their ships could
be»in to sail with the Constitution.
‘°That was a pretty saucy trick, 1 in thinking,
one frigate heave to, for two seventy-fours, a
razee and two frigates as big as herself. whew.
But after all, this trick didn’t do much good;
for the English followed on, crowding all sail,
so the Commodore braced up again, and then
hove out a signal to the Levant, w hich was tai
ho* astern of the Cyane every minute, to tack
ship and stand back for the Porto Pray a, to take
shelter under the Spanish neutrality, while we
and the Cyane kept on. She tacked according
ly and the English admiral detached tiro fri
gates (the Newcastle and Acasta, forty-fours,)
to give her chase while he and the rest ol the
souadron bore dow n after us.
‘Now Commodore Stewart knew well enough,
that if the Newcastle and Acasta kept on after
the Levant, they would certainly catch her, so
he shortened sail again, backed his maintopsail,
and fired a gun to windward, hoping that the
English admiral would then recall his frigates
to take the Constitution, and so the Levant
would escape; but he was mistaken. The ad
miral knew that his seventy-fours and razee
were enough to take us; so he let the Acasta
and Newcastle go on, while he crowded on al
ter us. When Commodore Stewart saw that
that trick had failed, he hove a signal to the Cy
ane to shift for herself, and then bracing again
he made all sail, and in an hour the English
hauled off, finding they could not catch us.
‘When we came in New York, in April, the
Cyane was at anchor, off the Battery; but tiie
Levant took refuge in Port Pray a, and the En
glish broke the Spanish neutrality, as we
knew thev would, and managed, with two filty
gun frigates, to take a sloop of war, of twenty
two guns, with thirty men to man her.’
Riot at Dorer, X. //.—Our correspondent at
Dover, N. H. writes that “our town was a
»cene of unsurpassed contusion, on the occa
sion of their Military Review on Wednesday
last. It appears that Col. Bailey, Commander
of the Regiment, left (i/ eat Fulls and the State,
6 months since, and during his absence, the
Lieut. Col. issued orders for the military com
posing Col. Baileys regiment, toappear at Great
Falls for review, which orders were counter
manded by the Colonel on his return, who or
dered the several companies to appear at Do
ver, which was complied with by all except the
Cadets and Rifle companies of Great Falls.—
The officers of which however, appeared at Do
ver, thus acknowledging the authority of the
Colonel, instead of remaining at home. The
Privates of said companies chose to appear,
which they did under the command of their Or
derly Sergeant in the .vicinity of the Parade;
where they were ordered by the General into
line—they refused to comply unless the Colonel
and Adjutant Clark were put under arrest, to
(lie great dissatisfaction of both officers and sol
diers on parade. On being informed of the fact,
the Cadets moved forward to form with the
line, but being met by a powerful mob of men
and boys armed with clubs and stones, stale
esigs and brickbats, they were driven off the
field, together with the General and staff; after
which, Col. B. was waited upon by a deputation
from the officers of the regiment, and requested
to resume the command;—which request was
immediately made known to the troops, and by
theiji he was escorted with great acclamation
anii applause. The remainder of the day pass
ed off without further interruption.

WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCT. 1, 1834.
The Indian Expedition.—Col. Dodge and
Lieut. Col. Kearney have returned to Fort Gib
son from their late expedition with the United
States Dragoons to the Western Praries. Co
lonel Dodge brought with him fifteen Kioway In
dians, at the head of which is the chief of their
tribe—a Tw-ee-ash chief, with two warriors—
a Waycoah, chief of a small band who speak
the Tow-ee-ash—-and a Spaniard, or half breed,
belonging to the Camanche nation, and who
has all the habits and speaks the language of
that nation.
Colonel Dodge has invited the chiefs of the
several tribes inhabiting the country in the vi
cinity of Fort Gibson, to meet the delegates of
the Tow-ee-ash, Kioway, and Camanche na
tions. The Indians invited, and who will pro
bably be represented in this council, are the
Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Senecas, Shaw
nees, Delawares, and Osages. The object is
to bring these tribes together under the eye and
protection of Government officers—to give
them an opportunity of becoming acquaintet^
and of interchanging, if they will, pledges of
friendship, preparatory to a future negotiation
which may be attempted, for the purpose of es
tablishing a permanent peace among all the In
dians of this frontier.
Ttie expedition to the western prairies has
been pregnant with excitement and thrilling in
terest.
Altnougn tnerenas neen no moot! sued upon
this campaign, its termination adds in a high
degree to the military fame of Col. Dodge, who
displayed a degree of perseverance in march
ing withount food in un enemy’s country to their
very villages, and obtaining from them a sup
ply of provisions to last to the buffalo country;
forming with them treaties of peuce and friend
ship, and obtaining from them one of our peo
ple, whom they had in bondage, and support
ing that part of his regiment which was under
his immediate command without any provis
ions from Government for near sixty days, and
that too in an enemy’s country, upon their own
resources and hunters.
In addition to all this, he has visited tribes of
Indians who have never before been overtak
en by any armed force watever, although often
| pursued, and has brought their principal men
with him to observe civilized society, and ex
plored a country within our own limits posses
sing a great many advantages, which has not
been laid down on our maps, and about which
very little has been hitherto know n; and all this
has been done with less than two hundred and
fifty troops.
We gather these particulars from full accounts
written by officers attached to the expedition.
The President of the U. States passed through
this town on Thursday last on his return to
Washington from the Hermitage, and passed
the night at the hospitable mansion of Col. James
McDowell in this county—where the Hon. Mr.
Benton is at present on a visit with his family.

We are informed that Mr. Ash, the yEronaut,
is now in a fair way of recovering from the se
vere indisposition by which he has been afflict
ed for the last four weeks, and, from his present

I his ascension, Ac. the citizens of the district

A rumor has just reached us, that Governor
Marcy is about to decline the Herkimer nomi
nation. and to take in place of it the vacant Em
J bassy to St. James. The Governor has a bro
ther in law abroad, who would probably be
made Secretary of Legation. We should not lie
| at all surprised if such arrangements were made.

Mr. O’Connell, in consequence of the Cholera
I at Dublin, has gone to his castle at Derrynane,
j ria Cork, lie will there issue his “ manifesto”
' on the state of Ireland, which document, it is
| said, is as anxiously looked for as the King’s
i speech in England.—N. V. Star.
It is announced that a certain cure for the Cho
lera is now known. Dr. M’Caig of I oronto,
! gives sugar of lead in doses of five and even
j twenty grains in solution with water. He tried
: the experiment on two persons who ueie in
the last stage of the disoid- r. and cured them.
This treatment is becoming general at Toronto.
“ Betts's Patent French Distilled Brandy" is
said to have been acknowledged by the medi
cal profession in London in 1833, to ha\e piov
ed the best safeguard against Cholera. It is
freed Irom those acids which common brandy
possesses. It is perhaps a lamentable truth that
the liquor, which used in moderation, is unques
tionably a wholesome tonic, and the most po
tent protection we are acquainted with against
the frightful scourge in question, has too fre
quently been indulged in to such an extent as to
spread' the vice of intemperance.
New York Slur.
There is no subject which excites such uni
versal sensation in India, as the projected steam
communication with England. A writer in the
London Times inveighs with great reason
against the proposed new route, by the Euphra
tes and the Perssan Gulf, for which the House ;
of Commons have very unwisely made an ap
propriation of £20,000. The Euphrates passes
in the midst of savage tribes of Arabs; besides
it often overflows, and then it is next to impossi
ble to find its channel, which is itself narrow,
rocky and dangerous. The route by the Red Sea
is theoniy practicable one, as has, been proved.
The Viceroy of Egypt has in order to facilitate
this, pledged himself to make a rail road across
the desert of Suez.

The Weather.—Last Monday was a cold day
for the season, and fires were by no means un
comfortable. At sunrise, the Thermometer, at
the Museum, stood at 46 degrees. On Tuesday
at sunrise, it was as low as 38 degrees, and there
was a heavy white frost, discernible in the morn-1
ing, in most places. This is the first occui rence
1 of the kind this fajl.

If the professors of the Bible will read the 22d
chapter of the Book of Exodus, and obey the
commands of God, it is thought by some prac
tical Christians, old and young, citizens of our
town, that, by lawful means, the anger of the
great Jehovah may be removed, and days of
prosperity a^ain be enjoyed as in former
years. We know, from the* Holy Scriptures,
that, in all ages of the world, Satan has had his
friends. From such we expect no quarters. But
do not fear: the Lord will not show favor to
those who do not believe and obey his holy
commands. Moses.

DIED,
The Rev. Jissee Nicholson, a man whom all
revered for his exemplary piety and his great
moral influence, no less than for his patriotism,
evinced in the Revolutionary conflict, in which
(in the Battles of Brandywine and German
town especially,) he bore a conspicuous part, is
no more! He died at his residence in Ports
mouth yesterday morning at 2 o’clock, after 4
days of billious fevei, at the good old age of 77
years. Verily might it be said of this good man,
he was an Israelite in whom there was no guile
— and who, in his long and useful life, exempli
fied the principles of Republicanism in their
purest operution.—Norfolk Jieacnn.
At his residence in Matthews County, (Va.)
on Wednesday 17th ult., Rev. Miles King, a pi
ous and exemplary Minister of the Methodist
Protestant Church. He was for several years
attached to the Navy of the U. S. in which, if
we mistake not he attained the rank of lieuten
ant.
On Sunday 14th ult. at the White Sulphur
Springs, (Va.) whither he had resorted for the

SURGICAL NOTICE.
DR. R. ROMAN «ould respectfully solicit
an interview with all who are the subjects
ot HERNIA, (or Rupture.) The best Trusses
hitherto in use have only been used with a view
of preventing an aggravation of the misfortune.
Dr. R. proposes, by the application of Stagner’s
newly invented Truss, to effect a'radical cure
in the space of from two to four months. Those
laboring under this affliction, and having any
doubts of its application, are referred to the
Physicians of Alexandria and Washington City,
most of whom have examined the merits of the
instrument.
Dr. R. can be found at Newton’s Hotel, until
the 30th instant, during which time calls, either
in person or by letter, will meet with attention.
The following notices of this improvement
have appeared in the Washington papers:
“ R is pel haps due to Messrs. Maxwell & Ro
man to say, that they have exhibited to us tes
timonials which leave no doubt on our minds of
the value of the improvement advertised by
them in the Truss—an article, we are sorry to
learn, of much more extensive use and necessity
than we had until lately supposed.”— Nat. Int.
“ We invite attention to an advertisement, in
this day’s paper, of Messrs. Maxwell and Ro
man. The improved Truss, which it is their ob
ject to introduce into use, has the recommenda
tion of some of the most eminent surgeons in
the United States.”— Globe.
11 Persons in the city afflicted with Hernia, or
Rupture, would do well to call on Dr. Maxwell,
whose advertisement is in our paper of to-day.
The Doctor has the most satisfactory evidence
of radical cures having been made in an unpre
cedented short time, by means of a newly in
vented Truss. Cases which were considered
impossible to be cured radically, have been cur
ed in a space of time that surprises both physi
cian and patient. Some of the first physicians
of the country speak in the most favorable terms
of the Truss used by the Doctor. We are told
that it has not failed, in scarcely a single in
stance, of producing a radical cure, where it has
been applied, and carefully persisted in.”
