CONSUMPTION CURED.
The following letter is from a highly
respectable merchant, dated
Lewistown, N Y , Sept, 10, t84 4
Dr D.JAYNE Dear Sir: It is said
by Pnvsicians, and is by the mass of man
kind believed, that Consumption cannot
be cured that when once it becomes seat
ed in the numan sysiem, nu-niun
icate or stay its progress, but that jit will
continue the work of destruction unlil its
victim sinks into the grave.
However true ibis may be in theory, i
am disposed to doubt it in fact; indeed, my
own experience, and a desire to benefit
others, compels me to pronounce the as
sert;on u"true. You will probably recol
lect, sir, that in the beginning of lb40 1
wrote to you, stating that I had the Con,
sumption, and that it.was fast hurrying me
to the grave. I did not then, nor f do I
now doubt, every symptom was too pain
fully visible My Physicians considered
me incurable, but the advice which i an:
ed of you was given, and I am happy to
say that by using a few
comparable medicine-the EXPEC IOK

City of Mexico. Dec. 27, 1S47.
Edd. Delta Yesterday morning a de
tachment, : under "the command of ol.
Withers, consisting of the 9lh Infantry, a
section of Artillery under, Lieut. , and
a.;coppany of Dragoofrs under Capt Gai
tber, started for Pachuca, a town situated
near the mines of Heal del Monte. The
object of the, expedition. I understand to be
to protect the proprietors in working the
mines, and at the same time to collect the
revenues arising therefrom.
The prospects for negotiating a peace
immediately increase daily, and in fact we
have every reason to believe the Mexicans
will conclude it during the next month, if
our Government will accede to the terms
they offered during the armisiice. An en
tirely different opinion exists in the coun
cils of Mexican Government, and with a
large majority of the people. My corre
spondent at Queretaro! writes me, under
date of the 20th inst , that about thirty nf
the new deputies had already arrived, and
that by the 5lh or 10th of January, there
would not only be a quorum, but nearly,
the'hacienda, arid one fellow as he-limped
off on his wounded leg, declared it was the
best thi rig he had "seed did" 1 during the
whole campaign. ; 4 -

sion, is distinguished for his very beautiful
edition of the Greek Testament, which
forms the basis of the one now. in com
mon use. An idea may be formed of his
extensive erudition, as well as of the learn
ing of the times, from the following account
of his biographers: "He received only
such compositors into his printing office
as were conversant with the Greek and
Latin languages. His workmen, in and
about the office, were obliged to speak Lat
in. His wife and "daughter understood
this language thoroughly, and assisted him
in carrying his directions into, effect; so
that throughout his whole house and pnn
tipg establishment, from the bureau of bu
giness to the kitchen, nothing was heard
but the Latin tongue. He usually employ
ed the proof-readers all from foreign cotin
tries, who spoke the various language
which they corrected... The zeal of thi
early and learned printer for -study, .for
maintaining the honor and dignity of tM

heir toilet. The former was vainly en

mazes of a very dilapidated pair of panta
loons that had- been literally shot off his
legs during the action,, while the latter
was very complacently admiring the set
of an elegant pair of blue-cassimere which
he had stolen on the previous night from
some unfortunate Mexican gentleman, and
which fitted him to a.hair. 5 The, Lieuten
