AN EPICURE.
Among the most -.noted of the moderns we
beg to introduce our readers to Mr. Rogerson,
and enthusiast and a jnartyr. lie, as may be
presumed, was educated at the University
where the rudiments ofpalatic science are the
most thoroughly impressed on the ductile or
gans of youth. His father, a gentleman of
Gloucestershire,sent him abroad to make the
grand tour, upon which journey, says our in
formant, young Rogerson attended to nothin'*
hut the various inodes of cooking and me
thods of eating and .drinking luxuriously.
Before his return his father died, and lie en
tered into the possession af a very large mo
nied fortune, and a small landed estate. He
was now able to look over his notes of epi
curism, and to discover where the most ex
quisite dishes were to bediad, and the best
cooks piocured. He had i,mother servants in
his house than men cooks, hisdnitler, footman,
housekeeper, coachman and grooms were all
cooks. 1 ie had three Italian coolie, one from
Florence, another from Vienna* and a third
liom Viterbo, for dressing one dish, the docce
pivanteo! Florence, lie had a messenger
constantly on die road between Brittanny and
I.omlon to bring him the eg£S of a-certain sort
of plover, found near St. Maloes. He has ea
ten a single dinner at the ex pence of fifty
eight pounds, though, himself only sat down
to it, and there were hut two dishes. He
counted the minutes between meals, and
seemed totally absorbed in the idea or
in the action of eating; yet his stomach was
very small; it was the exquisite flavor
alone that he sought. In nine years he found
his table dreadfully abridged by the ruinofhis
fortune, and himself hastening to poverty.—
'J ins made him melancholy and brought oil
disease. When totally ruined, (having spent
nearly .f ICo.otM),) a friend give* him a guinea
to keep him from starving; and die was iound
in a garret soon after roasdug an^rtolan with
his own hands. We regret to add,ahat a few
days afterwards, this extraordinary youth shot
himself. We hope that his notes are not lost
to the dining world. Mr. Dod’s Cook’s Manu

A new Sect ix England.—An American
lady now in England, whose correspondence
is published in the Christian Register, writes
as follows:
“Among the seceders from the Church of
England, a sect has lately sprung up, cal
ling themselves the Providence Society.—
1 have not been at any of their meetings, hut
1 happen to know some of the results; in one
instance, in Exeter, the son of a lord lias given
up ins patrimony lor the benefit of his poor
companions, and his taste directs him to keep
a boarding house in which all the furniture is
of the most humble kind ; articles which in
genteel bouses are of mahogany, or rosewood,
here are made of deal, and all things else cor
respond. No persons are admitted but those
who belong to the Providence Society, and
their rank or station is not a matter of inquiry.
One young lady, whose family I know, has.
lately thrown her begutiful drawings, albums,
&c. into the sea ; giving up allclegant pursuits
and married quite a common person. The
young ladies who have become converts, are
said to be known by their slovenly, dirty ap
pearance ; for as they admit no distinction of
rank, and have not learned to be notable,they
appear in a most pitiable condition.
Dll. LEIDY’S EXTRACT OF SARSAPA
RILLA,
IS the strongest preparation of Sarsaparilla
made. One bottle of it is equal to six
pints ol the syrup which is commonly vended at
£1,’25 per bottle. A receipt accompanies each
bottle of Dr. Leidy’s Extract of Sarsaparilla,
which, if a Svrup is wanted it can be made at
an expense of two dollars per gallon. Dr.
Leidy’s extract is unusually pleasant to the
taste, taken either by itselforin a glass of wa
ter, is particularly adapted to the spring and
summer seasons, being of a more purifying
nature than any other medicine ever discover
ed-numerous certificates from Physicians
and others as well as full directions acconi
