eould wish. His age is about 50 years.
A son of Mr. Warreu, of this town, 14 years of age, had
been afflicted with the Asthma from his cradle- He had
the benefit of the best medical advice that a loving and
wealthy father could procure, without avail. It was one of
the most aggravated cases I ever saw; he was emaciated al
most to a skeleton. By the use of a few bottles of the Oint?
menthe vrast!iorouMicurtJ, and for seven, njunto3 past has
enioyed robust health. I
This was an extreme case of inflammation of the spleen,
of long standing; has a variety of treatment from no less than
eight different physicians without rereiving lieneEt was
cured by the use of only four bottles of the Magnetic Oint
ment This was fourmonthsagoand the lady (aMrsDun- ,

liousenoid duties. 1 nave treated iwo cases oi oronio xare
Erne with the Ointment, both of tho patients so nearly
LUnJ, as to need an attendant to lead them from place to
place. One of them had been afflicted IS years, the other
about 9 years. They had tried the best physicians in" the
State, without benefit; and one of them had been under the
treatment of the celebrated Dr. Muzzy, of Cincinnati, for
eighteen months, and had expended hundreds of dollars In
vain efforts to effect a cure. They aro now by use of the
Magnetic Ointment, nearly or quite cured; and are able to
read and attend to any ordinary business I have used the
Ointmont in a number of cases of Piles and in no case ltaeit
failed of giving immeliate relief 'and generally a permanent
cure. I have also used it beneficially in severe cases of Ery
sipelas. And last but not least, I have within the last year
cured four cases of CANCER by the use of the Magnetic
Ointment alone!
From a thorough trial of the Ointment in nearly every
disease for which it is recommended, I cau oonfidently re
command it to be ono of the most useful remedies ever of
fered to the public. Respectfully Yours ,

THIS Mill differs from all others 1h the construe tlon of
tha upper or Ranninir Stone, which Is composed of
French Burr Blocks, enclosed In a cast iron Case, which
forms the back aud hoop of the Stone with a Cast Iron Eye, or
Bush, than Is of greater external diameter at the bottom that
at the top, whkh is secured to the back by four bolts, so that
every block Is in the form of a dove tail, which gives greater
strength to aStonethaaanyother method which is required
in small mills, where the stone Is ran with great speed, and
beromesdangerons if not strongly made. It alsoglves any
weight to astqne of small dlameterthit is required without
haying It thick or high, that makes it top heavy.
This mill is a square frame made of wood or cast Iron, in
the form of a busk,wlth Bridge-tree, Spindle Balance, King
Driver, and Regulating Screw, and grinds ui.on the same
principle as a larvc mill, differing only in the Rnnner Stone;
this being of great weight enables it to grind nearer the cen
teragreater quantity of grain wl!hles power than any other
mill now in use. This mill is portable, and may be attached
to steam, water, horse or hand power.
ALSO, all sizes ofKrench Burr AIM Stones, manufactured
on the same princlnle.
Joseph II. Burrows, or Cincinnati, Is the inventor, for
Which he obtained Letters Patent in 1813. For al'.lnfrln;e
mcuts the purchaser will bu held responsible for tho right
ofuslng.
These Mills do not require a Millright to sat them up; and
all that is necessary to put them in operation, ia to attach
hand to the pulley on the spindle, with a drum suaidently
large to run a twenty-four inch Mill 240 revolutions par
minute, attached to Gin, Steam, or Water Power. By the
steady application oftwo horse powerthe Mill will grind six
to 8 bushels per hour of good meal: and will grind wheat
as well as corn, Tho thirty inch mill, if put to its fullest
speed, wU! grind from ten to fifteen bushels per hour.
T!ioo mills are warranted to be in every respect as recom
mended. DmiecTioKS roa Ustito. Pisco yourmillaboutEOfeetfrom

granted him for his discovery.and we are the appointed agent
tor the sale of rights, and its introduction throughout the
West ; and as the present high price of iron is inducing many
capitalists to invest in its manufacture, without being aware
of the great advantages this new and valuable inven
tion has over any other known mode, we think it but subser

portance of an examination of the merit ot this late inven
tion before embarking in any other made far making iron,
assuring them of its entire success and practicability, as de
monstrated by the furnace r,Qv in" successful operation afte
this plan.
It u uflt our purpose in this advertisement to speak par
ticularly of the almost incalculable advantages th s process
possesses over all other modes for making Iron; (as this is
contained in our circular, which we will be pleased to mail
to the addres3ofany one interested in the matter,) but to
call the attention of those about investing in the manufac
ture of Iron, and respectfully invite an examination of the

MISCELLANEOUS.

A desrae of mystery Las hnngarow.i the tlcatli
of this lamented jwcteis?. In the year 1838, as our
readers are aware, 3lisa Landon Vas married to
Captain Maclean, the Governor or Capet Coast
Caitli. She had scarcely been two months in Af
rica, when she was fonud uead in her room, -with a
bottle of prnssic acid at her side. This mysterious
and tragic circumstance U fully explained in the
following- extract from a review, in an English pa

death, whose eyes were the last to rest upon those
rigid features so recently beaming with all the ani
mating glow of a fine- intelligence, and who, with a
sorrowful heart, saw her consigned to her narrow
resting place. I will endeavor to place
in its true light a fchort account of her too brief so
journ in Africa.
"When Airs. Maclean arrived at Cape Coast, there
was no European ladv then at the tettlement. and
lier husband was in very bad' health. Mr. Crnick-
shank was also ill. An invitation to visit the gov
ernor and his wife found him in bed, aud it was
some days before he could venture out to the castle.
"I sent in my name by the servant, and, immediate
ly after, Mrs. Maclean came to the kill, and wel
comed me. I was hurried awav to his bed-room.
every
that is admitted here.' I took a scat by the side
of his bed, upoirwhick Mrs. Maclean sat down, ar
ranging the clothes about her husband in the most
affectionate manner, and receiving ample compensa
tions for her attentions by a very sweet and ex
pressive smile of thankfulness. We thus sat and
chatted together for some hours, Mrs. Maclean
laughingly recounting her experience of roughing
it in Africa, and commenting, with the greatest
good-humor and delight, upon what struck her as
the oddities in such a stite of society. She pointed
to a temporary bed, which had bceu made lor her
on the floor, and said Mr. Maclean's sufferings had
been so great for some nights, tliat the little sleep
whitdj she had got had been taken there. 1 decli
ned tt occupy auy apartment iu the castle, bat
promised to call daily, during my stay iu Cape
i;oasi, to pass a lew nours witn them.
"We pass over the daily record of social inter
course. Air. UruicksnatiK was about to return to
England for hb health. Mrs. Maclean was em
ployed in writing sKetches or acott s heroines, lor
the Book of Beauty, and 03 she sometimes found it
difficult to fix her thoughts on a particular subject,
"she seemed to hare some alarm that the climate
was affecting her."
.Mr. Cruickshank writes: "As the day drew near
for my-departure, she occupied herself more and
more in writing to her friends in England. It had
b?n arranged that the vessel should sail on the
forenoon of the ltith of October, and I agTeed to
dine and spend the evening of the lath with the
governor and his lady. It was in every respect a
night tojbe remembered. At 11 o'clock
I arose to leave. It was a fine clear night, and she
strolled into the gallery, where we walked for half
an hour. Mr. Maclean joined us for a few minutes,
but not liking the night air, in his weak state, he
returned to the parlor. She was much struck with
the beauty of the heavens in those latitudes at
night, and said it wa3 when looking at the moon
and the stars that her thoughts oftenest reverted to
home. She pleased herself with thinking that the
eyes of some beloved friend might be turned in the
same direction, aud that she had thus established n
medium of communication for all that heart wished
to express. 'But you must not,' fahe said 'think me
a foolish, moon-struck lady. 1 sometimes think of
these things oftener than i should, and your de
parture for England has called up a world of de
lightful associations. You will tell M. P., how
ever, that I am not tired yet. He told mo that I
should return by the vessel that brought me out;
but I knew he would be mistaken.' AVc joined the
governor in the parlor. I bade them good night,
promising to call in the morning to bid them adieu.
I never saw her in life again."
At breakfast, next day, Mr. Crnickshank was
alarmed by a stiiumons: "Vou are wanted at the
castle; Mr. Maclean is dead!'' said the messenger.
Hurrying to the castle he found that it was not
Mr. but Mrs. Macltatn whom he had left the pre
vious night so well was no more. "ISever," he
says, "shall I forget the horror-strickeu expression
of Mr. Maclean's countenance. "We entered the
room where- all that was mortal of poor 'L. E. L.'
was stretched upon the bed. Dr. Cobbold rose np
from a close examination of her face, anu told us
all was over; she was beyond recovery. My heart
would not believe it. It seemed impossible that
she, from whom I had parted not mauy hours ago,
so full of life and energy, could be so suddeidy
struck down. I seized her hand, and gazed upon
her face. The expression was calm ana meaning
less. Her eyes were open, fixed, aud protruding."
An inquest was immediately held. "All that
could be elicited, upon the strictest investigation,
was simply this: It appeared that she had risen,
and left her husband's bedroom about seven o'clock
iu the morning, and proceeded to her own dressing
room, which was up a short flight of stairs, and en
tered by a separate door from that leading to the
bedroom. Before proceeding to dress, she had oc
cupied herself an hour and a half in writing letters.
She then called her servant, Mrs! Bailey, aud sent
her to a store-room to fetch some pomatum. Mrs.
Bailey was absent only a few minutes. "When she
returned, she found difficulty iu opening the door,
ou account of a weight which appeartsl to be pres
sing against it. This she discovered to be the body
of her mistress. She pushed it aside, and found
that she was senseless. She immediately called Mr.
Maclean. Dr. Cobbold was sent for; but from the
first moment of the discovery of the body on the
floor, there had not appeared any symptoms of life.
Mrs. Bailey further asserted that she had found a
small phial in the hand of the deceased which she
removed, ami placed upon the toilet-table. Mrs,
Maclean had appeared well when she sent her to
fetch the pomatum. She had obnerred in her no
appearance of utiliappiness. Mr. Maclean stated
that his wife hat! left him about seven o'clock iu
the morning, and that he had never seen her ugaiu
in life. Wlicu he was called to her dressing-room,
he found her dead upon the floor. After some
time, hp observed a small phial upon the toilet-table,
and asked Mrs. Bailey where it had come from.
She told him that she found it in Mrs. Maclean's
hand. This phial had contained Schecle's prepara
tion of prussic aci.l. His wife had been in the
habit of using it for severe fits or spasms, to which
she was subject. She had made use of it once on
the passage from England, to his knowledge. He
was greatly averse to her having such a dangerous
medicine, and wished to throw it overboard. She
entreated hini not to do so, as she must die without
it. There had been no quarrel nor unkindness be
tween him and his wife.
"Dr. Cobbold, who had been recjnested to make
a post-mortem examination, did not consider it at
all necessary to do so, a.s he felt persuaded she had
died by prussic acid. He was led to thi3 conclusion
from the appearance of the eyes of the deceas
ed; and he believed that he could detect the
smell of the prussic acid about her person. My
own evidence proved that I had parted from Mr.
and Mrs. Maclean at a very late hour on the even
ing before, aud that they appeared then upon the
happiest terms with each other. There was found
nnon her writing-desk a letter not yet folded, which
was scarcely dry at the time of the discovery of her
death. This letter was read at the inquest. It
was for Mrs. Fagan upon whom she had wished me
to call. It was written in a cheerful spirit, and
gave no indication of unhappiuess. In the prost
script the last words she ever wrote she recom
mended me to the kind attentions of her friend.
With the evidence before them, it was impossible
for the jury to entertuin for one instant the idea
that the unfortunate lady had wilfully destroyed
herself. On the other hand, considering the evi
dence respecting the phial, her habit of making use
of this dangerous medicine, and the decided opin
ion of the doctor, that her death was caused by it,
it seemed equally clear that they mu3t attribute her
death to this cause. Their verdict, therefore, was,
-urs. jiaciean saying, as she tripped through the
long: gallery, 'You are a privileged person, Mr.
Cruickshank, for I can assure, it is not every one
tuat -she dtciT from art overdose of Scheele'3 prepa
ration of prusic acid, taken inadvertently-.' Mr.
Cra.ckshank, concurred in this verict at tie time,
but s.nce his arrival in England he has fomrf re

African Colonliatlon.
The legislature or Virginia has nobly appropri
ated fifty dollars for each free person of color who
may emigrateto Liberia", without regard ta age
provided the person was freo at the time of the oasl
sage of the Act; satisfactory evidence of which
must be presented to the Colonization Board; for
the organization of which the law provides,' and
which was duly organized in the City of Richmond
on the second day of May. It appears that the sum
of S2.400 has already been paid bv said Board, un
der the operation of this law, for the transportatioa
of forty-eight emigrants ia the ship Banshee
The law appropriates S40.000 per annum, for
five years, to be expended in the transportation cf
Xegroes, nov free, to Liberia, but not more tfcazr
S50 is to be applied to the transportation and 3ab
sistence or each emigrant. Which sum ia to be
paid to the Colonization Society of Tirginia, wfcea
evidence is produced that such emigrant Lu been
embarked for transportation, or has actually beca
transported to Liberia. This ia a noble act, of a
noble State. "Virginia furnishl the first Presi
dent, and many other distinguished citizens of tha
itepublic of Liberia, as well as the father of oar
own country. We hope by the assistance thru af
forded by the State, many other may bo enabled
to emigrate to that young, butfioariiBrerrablfc;
where, by a course of industry, they will not only
prove to the world, that the liberality of the state
has not been misapplied; but that the colored raaa
has a capacity for self-government, when phcid
where he can be free indeed.
Will not our goodly state of Tenneaoec take her
stand nobly by the side of the OKI Dominion iu
this work of Philanthrophy and Christian benevo
lence at the next meeting of our Legislature? We
feel confident every true citizen of Tennessee would
rejoice to see it.
The free person of color, is not, cannot be free
among us. It is impossible. Xo matter what hi3
capacity may be, he cannot be elevated in society.
His color gives him a position in ofety above
which he cannot rise. The law do nt aHow him
to voie. tie cannot hold an office of honor

or the ignorant and degraded free person of hin

Send tho free man to Liberia. There he is man.

He is by law equal. In society he is equal. There

Every thing encourages him to bo a good man.
