! 1A. Counsellor al Law, !aie cf Virginia, iiav
I ing located bmi<elf in the city of New York
I for eigtit years past, resf>eoifully tenders his
: acknowledgements to his friends in the South,
lor tlieir confidence and patronage in various
1 matters of business, ami solicits their contin
uance. He has had much experience, both in
1 this State and that of Pennsylvania, in caus
ing fugitive slaves to he secured, and will
continue toeflect such objects whenever call
ed up mi. His plans are so well matured, by
having at his command the most elficient aid,
located at dillerent points, and successfully
harmonizing, that he w ill have mote complete
success in future than heretofore—indeed, it
clothed with full authority, lie can cause any
fugitive slave to be secured, who maybe in
the tinted States, north of Mason and Dix
on’s !me. All the statutory enactments of
fins State on this subject, have been pro
nounced unconstitutional by the highest tri
bunals. it ujil therefore be seen that the
provisions made in the constitution on this
subject, are paramount lo ali other enact
ments, whether State nr Federal. There are
thousands of fugitive slaves in this city and
its environs, and they continue lo multiply
These being, nf best, very unpopular
in cases in this quarter, (lie having the Aboli
tionists, the flesh, and the devil, to contend
with,) it will he necessary lor those wishing
to secure his services, to forward turn a power
of attorney, duly executed, and minutely
descriptive of the fugitive, and also a fee of
s^o, lo defray preliminary and contingent ex
penses. His universal charge lor securing
such slave is *lou, and ali reasonable ex
Mr. Pettis will promptly and faithfully at
tend to a nv business confided to him, touching

*"1' 1 —■—r———
By I. S. Sleeper.
We have never met with a better collection
of sea stories. Whether humorous or puthe.
if, they are written with great spirit, and as
far as our slight knowledge extends, with cor
rectness of description. The following :>»
from the ‘‘Impressmentof Seamen**— a pap*
giving details of British cruelty, which make'
the blood tun cold to even imagine:
“In the year IS10, a brig belonging to Saletr.
was overhauled by a British cruiser on if-’
South American coast. The cretv were com
posed of Americans, athletic, hue looking )(,
lows. But the cruiser was in want of liar. .
—and the boai ding officer ordered two of I*,
seamen to pack up tneirs duds, and go into t r
limit. The men neieihunderstruck—and if
captain remonstrated in the strongest tern
against an unjust and atrocious act. Tl
lieutenant shi tigged his shoulders, and coo y
said, ilial it was needless to multiply words
about it lor tne men he mu>t have—and not
withstanding their protections, he believed
they were Englishmen! There seemed to he
no alternative—lor with a mar. of war on tin*
ycenn,as well as a pirate, might often make;
eight. (hie ol the men silently resigned him
sell to his late, although he w’as well aware
that it was a dreauJul one. The other,
whose name was Barnes a noble looking
fellow ol six feet in height, ami of due projj
portions— untested against the course adopt
ed by the Englishman, declaring himself
to be a native American citizen, and entitled
to ihe pnvilegesuf an American. The othcer,
however, was inexorable, and finding his or
ders reluctantly obeyed, was about to proceed
to use (orce, w hen Barnes took his clasp kmle
from h:s pocket, opened it, and grasping it in
his left hand, diew it across the palm ol Ins
right hand,—then, dropping the knife, he seiz
ed the liuge s and with a wrench fbicedthem
back until they lay parallel with the wrist, mi
direction of the elbow, and at the same tim ex
claiming to ihe astonished othcer, ‘Now take
me, il you like, on board your rascally craft
l shall he a cripple lor Ide.”
Another Atnei trail was seized on a similar
occasion. Iiis protection was disregarded;
and m conse<inenec ol Ins brave resistance t«*
the British kidnappers, ne was taken on board
i fit ir vessel, and whipped by order of the cap
•* tits bands were loosened, ana ne aro.'e
irotn lii^ humiliating posture. lie glared fierce
ly around. The captain was standing within
a low paces ol him, as if fie enjoyed to the
bottom of Ins soul the disgrace and the tor
tures inflicted on the poor Yankee. The fia|>
leM syflerer satv Ifulsmileot exultation; and
that moment derided the late of f»is oppres
sor. W on the activity, the ferocity, and al -
most the strength of a tiger, the mutilated
American sprang upon the tyrant, and grasp
ed him where he stood, surrounded hy his o!
livers, w ho for the moment seemed paralyzed
with astonishment, an-l l elore they could re
cover their senses, and hasten to the assist
ance of their commander, the flogged Ameri
can had borne lmn to the gangway, ami then
clutching him t>y the thioat with or.e hand,
ami firmly embracing him with the other, de
stine his struggles, he leaped with Inm into
me in. hid waters ol the Demarsira! They
parted to tece ve the tyrant and fits victim—
then closed over them, and neither was aller
j ward- seen. Loth had passed to their Ia«>'t
