Iq a bower a widow dwelt,
At her feet three lowers knelt ;
Each adored the widow much,
Each essayed her heart to touch ;
One had wit and one had gold
One was cast in beauty's mould ;
Guess which was it won the prize
Tongue, or purse, or handsome eyes?
First began the handsome man,
Peeping proudly o'er her fan j
Red his lips, and white his skin
Could such beauty fail to win 1
Then stepped forth the man of gold,
Cash he counted, coin he told ;
Wealth the burthen of the tale
Could such golden projects fail 1
Then the man of wit and sense
Woo'd her with his eloquence ;
Now she heard him with a sigh ;
Then she blush'd scarce knowing why.
Then she smiled to hear him speak
Then a tear was on her cheek :
Beauty, vanish ! gold depart!
Wit hath won the widow's heart.
In 1827. when North Mississippi was cleared
of the Indians, partially, the whole of this coun
try was then called Yazoo County, extending
over one hundred and fifty miles square. The
law had not taken effect for the want of organi
zation, except in the militia. One col. Cassou
commanded in his regiment the whole country,
and he was all the officer, either civil or military,
that lived in that large tract of country. The
country, as was to be expected, was filled up with
a horde of trifling fellows, and thieves and the
like. About this time theie were missing two
horses in the neighborhood, and col. Cassou cal
led a meeting of the citizens generally, to consult
upon the best measures to adopt in relation to it.
Accordingly, a large collection met at the house
of the Colonel, on Big Black, (where Holmes
County now is) and called the Colonel to the
Chair. Suspicion soon fell upon a young nvin
by the name of Dobson, who was not present.
After consulting and discussing the subject, pro
and con, it was agreed that Dobson should be
brought forward for trial. An old gentleman,
rather more intelligent than some of his cotem
poraries, asked how the meeting could get hold
ofhira? Col. Cassou drew down his eyebrows
in a dignified manner, as if casting about in his
mind previous to giving "the opinion of the
court," and said, "Gentlemen, I will issue an
Ognum Torum Writ, and have him corporally
before me." "Bui what kind of a writ is that
Colonel?" said one old man with caution. " It
is a writ," said the Colonel, gravely, " to take
him as well where he aint, as where he is, and
have him corporally before us." This was sat
isfactory to the meeting, and six men were dis
patched with this awful writ, who returned in
about an hour with the renowned Dobson in
strings. He was arraigned witnesses sworn
but no evidence of even a secondary nature
could be obtained ; yet, after taking the vote, a
majority found hira guilty. The Colonel then
put on an awfully solemn visage, and said, "Isa
ac Dobson ! by authority of the ninth section of
laws in these cases, I pass sentence of death up
on you to be hung by the neck until you are
dead dead; not for stealing horses, but that
horses may 710 be stolea."
That evening Dobson was led to a blackjack,
and hung according to the sentence of "the
Court," admitting that he had stolen the horses,
and that he intended to have taken them to Red
River Raft, and acknowledged the justice of his
sentence. This country is now well settled, and
divided into twenty counties, but the old Colonel
was heard the other day to say: "These are
shocking times a man must be tried three or
four days for stealing and the like, then get clear
by some quirk in the law, when he stole the
horse as plain as the nose on my face I will go
to Texas, and get among civilized folks."
Because the industrious poor of Baltimore
have been so fortunate as to escape the frauds of
bank directors, and our city happens to enjoy the
enviable reputation of being among the very few
where the banks have always honestly perform
ed their duties to the puhlio, we should not be
the less prompt to express our indignation at
such systems of swindling as have recently dis
graced the banks of Philadelphia, and the com
munity which suffers most of the swindlers to
escape. We copy therefore the following :
An elderly lady stepped into our office a day
or two ago, and with much trepidation inquired
what had become of the Pennsylvania Savings
Bank, an institution which flourished for a short
lime at No. 70 South Second street, and then ex
ploded as suddenly as a soap bobble. We in
formed the inquirer that the concern had failed,
haa broken up altogether. A sudden change
eame over the features of the woman ; the blood
shrunk from her face, and for a few minutes she
appeared about to faint. On recovering some
what we saw the tears start from her eyes, while
an aspect of sadness and despair was expressed
in her countenance. It seems that she was a
child's nurse, and after laboring incessantly for
two years, had succeeded in saving from her
earnings between 8 100 and 8 200. She was
offered a situation with a family about to travel
for a few weeks, and being somewhat worn in
health, readily accepted the proposition. She de
termined, however, to place her little all of world
ly wealth, in some suitable institution for safe
keeping, and for such purpose had been directed
to the Bank of Pennsylvania. On seeking for
said bank, she mistook the Savings concern a
bove noticed for the institution she was in quest
of, and deposited her money there without the
slightest hesitation.
Imagine her terror and consternation on re
turning to the ci', to find that the Safety Bank,
as she had supposed, had failed and disappeared,
and that thus she had been robbed of the earn
ings of many an hour of toil and care. The irrief
I r . 1 . o
anu agony 01 me poor woman may be better im
agined than described. We shaft never forget
her look of despondency and wretchedness, and
the scarcely audible tones in which she related
her melancholy story. This, we doubt not, is
one of a hundred similar cases. Can it be won
dered at, that public indignation is strong against
these heartless and ruthless plunderers of the
credulous and poor? Inquirer.
The above is but a single instance of the many
which might be mentioned of the sorrows and
rain brought upon the industrious poor bv the
abominable frauds reoently committed in this
w v bv combinations of heartless roerues ; but we !
are not sure that public indignation is strong
enough against them at least not suincienuy so
as to produce beneficial meets, except m iue
case of the Manual Labor Bank, and in another
instance that of the Divitial institution we do
not knowof anv other prosecutions which are
. . 1 .v t A
more than formality, tnougn 11 must Decouiesseu
thm hrnr mnterials enoueb.- A spirit should
be abroad to induce a relentless hunting down
11 mirsuit not to be diverted bv anv consideration
nfnll who can be Droved truiltv of participa
tion in the fraudulent banking institutions of the
time. There should De a concentration 01 me

burning in its character, that to trifl with it
would be about as safe as to thrust the hand into

irnno that min would as soon think of commit
ling their robberies at noon day in the public
streets, as of accomplishing them under the guise
of banking. But this never nas been tne case,
and npr hans neer will be. These explosions
ure soon forgotten ; our lawsare generally mere
ink and paper where great rogues are concerneu,
and having been cheated, we bear it and go on
to be cheated again with a patience that is truly
wonderful. I' ennsy Iranian.

The sheriff, we understand, came not in his oin

return ; and states that he was authorized, on the
part of the bank, to assure Spencer that no prose

it, he could retain his place in the bank. We
are sorry to learn that the sheriff's mission has
been unsuccessful, Spencer having- left here, it is

These Pills are no longer among those of doubt
ful utility. They have passed away from the hun
dreds that are daily launched upon the tide of ex
periment, and now stand before the public as high
in reputation, and as extensively employed in all
parts of the United States, the Canadas, Texas,
Mexico, and the West Indies, as any medicine that
has ever been prepared for the relief of suffering
man. They have been introduced wherever it was
found possible to carry them, and there are but few
towns lhat do not contain some remarkable eviden
ces of their good effects. The certificates that have
been presented to the proprietor exceed twenty
thousand ! upwards of live hundred of which are
from regular practicing Physicians, who are the
most competent judges of their merits.
Often have the cures performed by this medicine
furnished subjects for editorial comment, in vari
ous newspapers and journals ; and it may with
truth be asserted that no medicine of the kind has
ever received testimonials of higher value than are
attached to this.
They are in general use as a family medicine, and
there are thousands of families who declare they
Bre never satisfied unless they have a supply al
ways at band.
They have no rival in curing and preventing Bi
lious Fevers, Fever and Ague, Dyspepsia, Liver
Complaints, Sick Head-ache, Jaundice, Asthma,
Dropsy, Rheumatism, Enlargement of the Spleen,
Piles, Cholic, Female Obstructions, Heart-burn,
Furred Tongue, Nausea, Distension of the Stomach
and Bowels, Incipient Diarrhoea, Flatulence, Hab
itual Costiveness, Loss of AnDetite. Blotched or
Sallow Complexion, and in all cases of Torpor of
tne towels, where a cathartic or an aperient is
needed. They are exceedingly mild in their ope
ration, producing neither nausea, griping, nor de
bility. ICf These extraordinary and iustlv celebrated
Pills are sold, in Raleigh, by WILLIAMS & HAY-
wuuu, and VV. M. MASON & CO., and in all
the principal towns in the State. Retail price, 50

Henderson Car
THE subscriber proposes to publish in Hender
son, Granville Co. N. Ca weekly Newspaper with
the above title.
The town of Henderson, situated on the Rail
Road, midway between Raleigh and Gaston, has
sprung into existence within a lew months : and
surrounded by a fertile, populous and extensive dis
trict of country, (the produce ot which will be car
ried there for sale or transportation) promises to
become a place of great trade. The low rates of
freight, and the facilities for obtaining, at all times,
full supplies of goods from other markets, give it a
decided advantage over towns, located on rivers,
which are navigable only at certain seasons of the

Coughs, Asthma, Inflammation of the Lungs
Is a vegetable extract, of an agreeable taste, and cer
lain in its happy results. The secret of making thi
pleasant elixir was communicated by an Indian chief
or mediciner as he was called, to an English physician
attached to the command of Gen. Wolfe, after the ca
pitulation of Quebec, as an act ot gratitude for some
favor he had received during the progress of that affair
Shortly after this transaction the professional gentle
man was recalled, (by the decease of some wealthy con
nexions at home,) to the possession of an ample for
tune. Although the doctor abandoned his lormer pur
suits, he never relinquished the practice ol the "Indian
Elixir," which he prescribed to a very great extent with
out receiving any compensation whatever, except the
reward which attends the performance of a good action.
After the death of the doctor, from the same humane
motives, "his descendants continued the use of the re
ceipt for a long time, as our numerous testimonals will
show, till the increasing demand made it necessary that
they should form some such arrangement as should de
liver them from the trouble, and yet not diminish its
usefulness. The heir, therefore, finally willed to do
the business entirely by agency; making only so mod
erate a charge, as merely lo defray the expenses ol pre
paring the. medicine-. With a view to this object, the
executors have appointed C. E. HOIT the sole agent
for North America and the West India Islands; who
will reside in New-York, and appoint such sub.agents
as, in his judgment, necessity may require. Ceiiifi.
cates and letters of recommendaiion may be had of the
agents, where many of the originals may be examined,
which would satisfy the most fastidious. As the article
i not sold with a desire to make the profit an object,
the folly of a false repre&ention must appear obvious to
every reasonable person. Price 81 per bottle.

"And be careful to remember that I have never

in the United States to-sell my Pills. Never lorget
that this class, doctors, druggists, apothecaries, and
pedlars are the men who sell counterfeits, (with few
exceptions,; and that all tradesmen who are made

certificate requires renewal every 12 months, it being
