We also annex bv way of inforn , tion, the fol
lowing protest of the National Intelligencer
against such a scheme as seems to bo in embryo;
reserving to ourselves, however, the right to speak
upon the subject at length, the moment we arc in
possession of the proper information.
1. It is au untried scheme, in favor of which
hardly any thing can be alleged but that it is un
tried ; which, (far from being a reason for prefer
ring it to tbe resort to a National B ink, which has
been tried and found, to be every thing desired for
the convenience, economy, and even emolument
of the Treasury,) is itself a decisive objection
to it.
2. It proposes a retrogrcseion in the march of
improvement; an entire renunciation of all the
commandant of the Hussar frigate.
Up to this time the report that she was a vol
untary exile from her home had not been contra
dicted, and was relied upon as such; but the gen
erous sailor Prince, during the passage out, dis
covered the irue state of the case, and determin
ed to take her into his own immediate charge,
in producing. In such circumstances, when th
father of a family sees the dearest object of hie
affections brought into want and distress, there
is a great temptation, to discontent and repining.
This tendency must lie resisted it never did a
uy good, and it never can. No man ever gained
by grumbling. Complaints, recrimmaiions, ana
that she might be returned to her father without ; even cuies, serve neither ta ni ke tho hunger

"As the most ready method of settling all diffi
culties, he made a bandsonio present to tbe villain
ous captain who brought her away, and who pre
tended to be under heavy responsibilities for her
safe return. This negociation was effected in
Halifax; but nosoonarwas the arrangement con
summated and tbe bmiis pail, than he secretly
conveyed her to the Wet Indies; but learningnt

weeping and wailing of relations, presented a
spectacle which defies description. Every possi

heat of the day, added greatly to the intensity ot
their sufferings. I shall not attempt to assign any

Extraordinary surgical operation by Dr. S emp
tier. There was performed in our village, last
week, a very curious and novel operation on the
Eye, being nothing more nor less than the instan
taneous cure of Squinting or "Strabismus," as it
is properlv called. The patient, a young lady
from South Carolina, came from Saratoga to this
ace to meet Dr. Scudder, and so perfect we3 tne
operation, and so little the inconvenience, that
he returned with her narents to Saratoga in the

all the wealth of Peru cannot confer happiness so
with them the deepest poverty cannot take it a
