tyThe following resolution was adopted

to Messrs. BICI.ER, BUCK A I r.w, and FREEZE, 1
for their able, interesting and very eloquent j
t d Iresses.
Last week wo had Sartain's Union, this ,
week wo liavo Godey's Lady's Rook, for £op
tember. —It is a splendid number. "Sour
Grapes," (a line engraving.) "The Approach
ing Footstep," (a mezzotint,) and "Cherry
Ripe," (Fa.-hion Plate.) are very well exc- j
cutea. The contents aro the productions ot
American authors—most the articles being
from persons of known reputation. The j
Lady's Rook, without doubt, cannot bo eur- I
passed of its kind.
A POLITICAL ANEI DOTE. —'The following j
anecdote of the late Gov. James Barbour, of j
Vn., was told us by a gentleman who re- ,
sides in the Piedmont legion. Gov. Barbour
was a candidate to represent his county in
the State Legislature, and wns opposed by
Thomas Davis. The Governor, in Ids speech
on the hustings, said : "Felldw cilizens, I
had the honor to represent my county for
several years in the assembly of Virgi lia; I
was for some years Governor of this ancient
and venerable commonwealth, I was for a
considerable time a representative of this
District in the Congress of the UuitedSlates;
I had, fellow citizens, at a subsequent pe
riod, the honor to hold a seat in the most
august legislalivo body in the world—the
Senate of the United Stales, at nuother pe
riod, I had the place of the Secretary of
War Department in the administration of
John Quincy Adams, and was afterwards
Minister Plenipotentiary and Ambassador
Extraordinary near tho Court of St. James;
and fellow citizens, you may picture to your
selves the hum ilialion that 1 feel at finding
myself hero io-duy, engaged in a damned
little pitiful county-contest with Tom Davis!"

Tho Bulletin of this evening contains a
sad and painful account which occurred on
Sunday afternoon in New London, Chester

-1 quent sermon in the Methodist church when
the lightning struck the building killing tlie
Rev. gentleman in the pulpit, and stunning
several of the congregralion. One young
msn it was thought had been killed also,
but after considerable exertions on the part
of those present be was restored to consci
ousness. No damage was done to tho buil
ding, except the breaking of some glass of
the windows. After closing his discourse,
l Mr. Biseey was leaning on the Bible when
1 tho fluid descended. Exertions was made to
' restore him, but the vital spark had fled. He
\ leaves a wife and oue or two children to
\ mourn his loss.

Sacred Scenes and Characters—By the Rev-
J. T. Headley. This work may be very
properly considered a companion to the'
•' Sacred Mountains,' by thfe same author.
Its object is to illustrate and '-render mote
life-like" the sacred writings. It is not the
author's design to supersede the Bible. But
his wish is excite a solicitude to obtain, and
to become intimately acquainted and per
fectly familiar with ils-hisuifw, .1n.t.i... ■■,! j
laws; to know its truth to imbibe its spirit,
feel its power, and partakh of its salvation;
in a word, to prize in some measure as it
deserves, this treasure which is indeed be
yond price. We predict for it a circulation
far beyond any of the author's former works.
[77ic Ncu-s, Jan. 7th.
Rambles and Sketches —By Rev. J. T. Head
ley. We have not for a long time sat down
to a book with more pleasing anticipations,
or found those anticipations more fully re
alized, than in the perusal of the work bo
fore os, and we know it will be hailed with
gratification by tire many admirers oi the
talented author. His "Napoleon and his
Marshals" was, perhaps, as popular and
found at least as many enthusiastic readers 1
as any book that can be mentioned. We
think the Rambles and Sketches are des
tined to be as popular at least as any of his
previously published works. There is not a
dull chapter in the work, filled as it is with
"an infinite variety." The author has am
ple room and verge enough for the employ
ment of his fine talents to great advantage,
and most successfully has he accomplished
the task. The biographical sketch of the
author is interesting anil "well considered,"
and adds much to the value of the book,
which is got up in a very neat and attractive
style by the publisher.— Sec Portland Trans
script, Dec. 15th.
- Mr, Headley is ono of themost promising wri
ters uf this country, and wc have hero one of his
books—or.e on which he ran safely rest his
fame. It possesses tho unfatiguing charms of
perfect simplhity and tinth. 'J'hero is graceful
frankness pervading the composition, which en-,
gages the interest of the reader in tho author as
well as in (he subject. His rambles about Rome,
Puris and London exhibit a thousand Hafts of an
ingenuous natuiC, upon which a man of taste
will delight to linger. We predict for this a
sale equal to that ol any of the author's works
(New York News.
The collection is ono of which no nutlior
need he ashamed. It consists, indued, of some
of Mr. Headley's most brilliant and highly fin
iahcj compositions, of those specimens of his
abilities try which be may be jnageo with the
greatest safety to his fame as a word-painter and
thinker, [New York Tribune,

ESSENCE OF COFFEE'.
ABOUT two yeftrs ago a new discovery
was made ia Europe, Consisting of a
subslilAiA for the ordinary store coffeo, called
Essence of Coffee, which has gone into gen
eral use with astonishing rapidity, not only
among the poorer classes, who at once dis
pensed w'rth the use o( the celebrated Chick
hit to now tn general use in the
weallhiesl families and the first hotels, and
is highly recommended by tho medical fac
ulty.
It is extracted from piftc, wholesome veg
etables. and excels all similar preparations
that have ever been offered to the public,
either in this country or in Europe. Its su
perior quality has already been attested to in
the cities by some of the most eminent phys
icians, and a number of the most distinguish
ed of the clergy and other highly respectable
citizens. Coffee made from this essence ac
cording to the prescription obtains a more
delicious and pleasant favor than '.lie com
mon sloro coffee, and is certainly more
wholesome, especially for persrtns i'A deli
cato health, which will be admitted by eve
ry physician who will take the pains lo test
the natute and properties of this essence.
One paper costing only 124 eis., i's equal
lo four pounds of store coffee, will bo bright
and clear without the an iliealiop of any
Other ingredient lo clarity or settle it. The
public are therefore invited to give this es
sence at least a trial before they condemn it.
A respectable merchant of Luzerne coun
ty in writing of it says:
"My customers have been using of the
above Essence for somo mouths past with
general satisfaction ; and Ido not hesitate
to recommend it to the public.
