In several of the reports this fact lias I
been stated; that the Society has been op- j
posed by persons from whom of all others, |
opposition was last to have been expect-1
ed. Upon this point, we respectfully but ;
earnestly, offerthe ad vice that all opposi- ;
tion to the temperance cause he met with
conciliating conduct, and overcome by |
diffusing information. Some, no doubt,
oppose this cause, lie cause they will not,
for the public good, deny themselves the
gratification of using ardent spirits. They
are aware that immense evil arises from
intemperance, and that the direct ten
deucy of the use of ardent spirits is to in
temperance, and that their example is ru-j
inous to many ; hut they hold the maxim, ;

a- evening about 7, and immediately pro
who- c te ded to find out Mr. Avery in prison,
w hich by a "singular coincidence,"
not staluls ' directly opposite the Methodist
meeting house. Having been introduc
tern- e d by a friend to Col. Allen, the keeper,
who atld shown my letters, he accompanied
use- m e to Mr. A's room, which is about 14
feet square, and 7 high, with a small
those opening for light, 6 inches wide, and 10
high: but which did not admit light
mi- sufficient to discern any object in the
pen room without the aid of a candle.
1 found Mr. A. alone, (his family hav
is ing returned to Bristol about a fortnight
it since,) and entered into a general con
versation with him upon several sub
for jects indirectly connected with the cause
and of his imprisonment. I was particular
lystruckwith the moderation, justness,
op- and liberality of his remarks—not one

thus occasioned: the amount
harsh, impatient or repining escap
ed him. He is about 33 years of age,
and has been a minister 1 q years: is ape
culiar^ but not an ill-looking man, bis tea
tures being very regular and placid; his
complexion dark, with very black hair
and heavy eye brows, that give his
countenance rather a sombie expression
which however, is entirely destitute of
any trait that could lead one to imagine
that there was any malignity in his dis
position. He looks somewhat older than
he is, but appeals to be in good health,
and fares well, though it was currently
reported that he was starving himself to
dcU. He speaks in high te^rms of the
courts of Col. Allen to him.
Great curiosity has been felt to see
him; and from g3 to »5 has been offered
for the privilege, but he lias not been
subjected to any such intrusions. Scv

France. From its commencement until the
1st of January, 1833, the whole number of
patients was 229,584—of those who perish- 1

authorities of that place was recently men
tjoned) was so unfortunately engaged:

leaky that they were obliged to bear up for

Consul, who, it appeared, he had not seen,

saw he was inclined to delirium, and request
C(1 tbc mate to have a watch kept over him to
prevent his jumping out of the cabin win
dmvS) which was complied with,
Tlîe next morning, the mate sent ashore
to the Consul's counting house, and informed
j^,. George Carnes, the head clerk, who
bad the control of the business in Mr. Bis
barn's absence, of the circumstances. Mr.
q went on hoard and invited the captain to
remove on shore, to his house on the hill
lint n he should become better; and they took
sucb articles as might he wanted, and went
t0 lb c house, and after they had put things to
l ights, walked down to tlie counting house
board, and
together. Mr. C. stopped to speak to some
one in the street, when Captain Paddock
went into the counting house, and in an instant
drew a knife and planted it in the heart of
the Spanish clerk, who sprang to the street
door and fell dead without speaking. He
then made for a lad named Pedrie who was
at another desk, but he escaped by getting
of a back door, and shutting it. Capt.

met Mr. Carnes,'whom he stabbed near the
heart; and then ran for the place where his
boat lay, and on his way fell in with Mr.
Wheelright, who was engaged in conversa
tion with another person, ami gave him a stab
in the breast bone, and three other sevete
cuts. A Mr. Budge then attracted his at
tention, and lie fell at hint, but he fortunate
ly got out of his way by stepping into the
house and shutting the door, which Captain
P. struck his knife in. t
The noise was heard in a watch-maker s
shop opposite, and Dr. Joaquin Le Rone, one
of the most respectable citizens of Chili,
went to thc door to ascertain the cause. As
soon as he came in sight, Captain P. delib
erhtcly put his arm around his waiste and
plunged the knife into tho heurt of the old
man, who fell dead without a struggle. I be
man of the store, still ignorant of what was
going on, went towards the door, where he
met by Paddock, hut by turning and
making a spring into the hack store, escaped
with three severe cuts. By this time the
/leones [laborers] had gathered, and com
menced pelting him with stones, one of which
hrought him to the ground and in the act of
securing him and taking thc knife one /leone
wounded, so that lie died thc next day,
and four men were badly cut. In his pock
et were found two spare knives, which, with
thc bloody one, were fixed with springs to
prevent their shutting, and the points were
ground sharp on both sides. Lc Rone was a
great friend to the Americans in Chili, and
has left a family of twelve children.
