An election of Chief Engineer ot the Fire

whose name and associations first
Soke down the Tammany party in the city,
J'rrvin® with him two Wing members ol Con
gress and six Assemblymen, was the chu t ot
fhhf department. The Tammanv Common
rnnncil in 1836 turned him out because he
would not comer! that department into a po
inir 1 engine, and. the firemen took bun up tor
Blister,'then the richest olhee m the city, and
elected him bv 6,000 majority-over his Tam
nv opponent. . The Tammany Common
rouncil again, not profiting by the Gulick !es
«on have tampered with this department.—
; as\ jfiglit. or rather this morning, about 2
o'clock, they created 21 new fire companies,
secretly got up and organized, so as to add H
votes to their party among the foremen and
issistant foremen of the body electoral, and
this: at an expense to the citv, it was charged
in debate, of $100,000. The movement al
reiid v creates a great deal of agitation, and it
udoubtful whether Tammanv will etlect its
obit'ct, such is the rage of the old firemen on
account of this new batch ol just-born peers.

The committee or the Richmond, Freder

suh'cct was referred, have recommended to
the company not to act finally at this time
iipou the question of accepting or rejecting the
kite act, authorizing an extension of the road
to the Potomac. They think the subject ought

will, at its next session, modify the objectiona

Ancient Coin.—A NewTIaven paper states
that an ancient Hebrew coin, dated in the
eleventh century, was lately found in a field
near that place. As every thing connected
j with antiquity found in the new world is a sub
ject of great curiosity, as tending to unite the
chain of evidence that this is an old inhabited
country, we were anxious to obtain particulars
‘relative to this coin—but, as yet, without any
success. Many coins and medals have been.
I struck with Hebrew inscriptions centuries af
• ter the Christian religion was established; but
J they did not originate with tlie Jews, it is,
! indeed, v ery doubtful whether in the most
! prosperous period ot Jewish history, coining
! was carried on to any extent Before the
Hood, and long after it, a system of tratiic pre
: vailed; and although Abraham was very rich
in silver and gold, and money was frequently
spoken of in those times, vet it is apparent, that
silver and gold went by weight, and not‘by
coin. In later times, the shekel was coined,
about the value of forty cents, and was called
shekel or shakal, to weigh; and this circulation
of gold and silver continued by weight until
David’s time. 'There was a tradition—but en
tirely unsupported by Tacts—thatmionev was
coined bvr Abraham, Joshua, David and Mor
| decai. Shekels and halt’ shekels were the on
ly coins struck durimr the existence of the He
brew government. 'The Hebrew talent was
three thousand shekels, and sixty made a mi
na. The shekel of the sanctuary, so called,in
consequ nice of the standard being kept in the
temple, had on one side an insence cup, or, as
I some think, a cup of manna, and on the re
i verse, Aaron's rod building with an inscription
in Hebrew, or Samaritan characters, round
; the coin, “Jerusalem the Holy.” I have one i
of these coins in my possession. In later times
I in Judea, Greek and Roman coin circulated
freely. 'There is no reason, therefore, for be- ;
lieving that any Hebrew coin was struck bear
ing-the date of 1100, as said to be, in the one j
found recently.in New’ Haven—although lie- j
| brew characters may have been used on that.
I coin. 1 remember some years ago to have
I seen in this country a coin or medal, having;
I on one side a beautiful executed head ot the I
| founder of the Christian religion, bearing the
inscription in Hebrew characters ol “Jesus

I referred to in a pamphlet on coins published
fin this c vnntrv, and it must have been struck
somewhere about the 6th century. "Those j

FREDERICK WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS.
npHE subscriber announces to the public that
JL this pi Austin t and delightful retreat Avill
be opened on the first of June, ibr. the recep
tion of company. Situated in the heart of the
Shenandoah Valley, it is the most easy of ac
cess of ail the Virginia Springs, placing the in
valid from the seaboard as well as the votary
! of pleasure, alter a few hours ride, in a brac
ing mountain atmosphere—in a neighborhood
agreeable and proverbial lor its health, and
hut one mile distant from Cain's Depot on the
Winchester and Potomac Railroad—where a
public conveyance will always meet the cars
—and about live miles from Winchester.
This Watering Place, long and favorably
known under the name of Duvall's and Wil
liam's-Sulphur Sprum, has been resorted to by
persons laboring under liver affection and oili
er derangements of secretion, with the hap
piest effect. The efficacy of the water, attes
ted by numbers from the Atlantic cities, to
which it is so readily accessible, is believed to i
be equal to that ofany spring in Virgini i.
The accommodations have been greatly in-j
creased since last season—including a large j
three story brick building, containing from for
ty to jiny lodging rooms,well finished, besides
a large bail room, Ibr which the best music
has been provided—baths to suit the wishes
of die visiters and other improvements to meet
the extended reputation of the summer resort.
Every effort lias been made to place this de
lightful Watering place upon a fooling with t!it*
most fasliishona hie place of tie1 kind, and eve- j
ry exertion will be used to give sntisfiction.

'This is 1 o certify, that. 1 was attacked with
the Asthma in the ninth year of my age, and
from that time until the present year, a period
e.f fifty-four years. I have hern snicert to that
disease. For the last five years, I had it al
most incessantly—not being exempt Irom it
11tore than twi*iit v-1our hotns »11 an\ onetime,
i had consulted the most skillful physicians,
and tried many remedies without any relict.— i
in June last, I commenced using iJr. Win.
F\ an's Vegetable Medicine, not with the ex
pectation of effecting a cure, for I believed tnv
case hopeless and my dissolution near, hut
w ith the hope of obtaining momentary relief.
Before I had used two packages, I was entirely
relieved and 1 have not been attacked with it
since. 1 can now sav that 1 am permanently
cured* of the disease, and I can confidently re
commend it to all w ho ji e a{]lit ied \\ 11h tins
