Messrs. Sunils: Gent. Words cannntexpress the
gratitude 1 feel for your treatment !o me,a stranger
suffering under one of the most loathsnne discuses
that nature is capable of bearing. The disease
with which I was afflicted commenced wilh inflam

almost total blindness. For this 1 was United and
finally relieved, but the remedies was" such as to
cause tlie,develnpeincnt of a scrofujous affection on
my left arm near the elbow.
''The pain extended from the shoulder to the
endof Iny fingers, nnd for two years my sufferings
were beyond description. 1 tried various remedies
and consulted different Physicians in New York,
and amongst them the lab Dr, Iluslie, who told me
the disease of the arm was caused by the large
quantity of mercury taken to cure the inflammation
of my eyes. t
My sufferings continued, the arm enlarged, tu
mors formed in differeutplac.es, and in a lew months
discharged, making ten running ulcers at one time,
somo above and some below the elbow, and the dis
charge was so offensive thaj no person could bear to
be in the room where I was. 1 then applied to an
other distinguished Physician who told.me amputa
tion of tile arm was the only thing that could save
my life, as it was impossible to'cure so dreadful n
disease , but as 1 was unwilling to consent to it ho

.Mil. Eastman : Among my fellow pas

onsky formerly an nlTicef under Nnpolcnn,
and now a minister oflhe I.nilieri.in r.lnirr.li
lie, however remembers the scenes ofoldeit '
times, and describes them with wonderful
interest. Ofhis lectures oti the character I
midlife ofNapolean I had often hoard, but j
never before has it been my privilege to
meet wilh him. lie is indeed a remarkable
man ; although past three tcore and ten
years old, he retains the erect poMurc, the
firm step, nnd activity of an olliccr of fifiy.
His skin haa all the softness and delicacy of
middle life, while the vigor of his gigantic!
irame, the quickness oNns eye, and the
power oi ins voice, all indicate that it
woulil ho nouillieiili thing for Imn did cir-
curnstanccs ciulcr it necessary, to' resume
his place upon the war horse, and iurain
lend forth his troops to the deadly combat,

to rank amid tho din of conflict. His lec
tures I have always heard represented as in
tensely interesting Such I can weir con
ceive they arc, for besides possessing a
memory of remarkable tenacity, nnd an un
usually ready utterance, he has li.icl means
sucli as perhaps no other living man has bad,
certainly none iu this country, of knowing
the men and things of which he. sneaks.
His acquaintance with Donnpartc, commen
ced on his first entering tho army, when ho
found himself a privato soldier under this
distinguished man as his captain. For
twenty three years he served With him in
stations of trust, which rendereil the most
intimate relations necessary, nnd it. was only
when Napolean was confined on tho Island
of Elba, that Colonel Lemanousky retired
from the service. 1 have dwelt thus long
on "the character and circumstances of this
veteran' officer, for the purpose of introdu
cing to your renders one of tho many nar
ratives with which he favored Us while pass
ing utffhe Ohio. And if I could impart to
it, on paper, a tithe ofthe interest itpbsscs-

sed as it fell upon his lips, and bcemed forth j
from his eye, I shouldjiavc no doubt oftts

to whom your paper goes. Of one thing I
am sure, that I shall be rewarded for writing
it; by the pleasure it will afford at least to
one "of those famiHcs. I give it ds nearly as
my memory serves me, iu bis own language.
'In the year 18U9,' said Col. Lemanouskv.
"being then at Madrid, iny attention was di-!
rect.ed to the inquisition in the neighbor-'struck

with nil the power which they could exert,
regardless ol'thcfjre which was poured upon
them from the walls, Presently tho walls
began to (rcmble, and under the well direct
cd application of the ram, a breach was made.
and the imperial troops rushed into the. In
quisition. Here wc met with an incident
which nothing but Jesuitical effrontery is
cqunl to. Tho Inquisitor general, follow
ctuny mo lather conlcssors, in their priestly,
robes, all came out ol the rooms, as wc wcro
making pur. way into the interior of the In
quisition, and with long faces and their arms
crossed over their breasts, their fingers rest
ing on their shouldersf,as tho' they had been
deaf (o all the noise of the attack and defence,
mid had hut just learned what was going on ;
they addressed themselves in the l.niimaoc
of rebuke to their own soldiers, saying,
"Why do you fight oup'fr.cnds, the French?"
Their intention apparently was to make
us think that this, defence was wholly unau
thorized by.thcm, hoping if they could pro
duce in our minds a belief that ihey 'were
friendly, I hey should bavo n better opportu
nity in the confusion and plunder of the In
quisition to escape. Their artifice was too
shallow, and did not succeed. I caused
them to be placed tinder guard, and alf the
soldiers ofthe Inquisition 'to bo secured as
prisoners. We then proceeded to examine
tliis prison house of hell
We passed through

and wax candles in abundance, but wc
could discover no evidences of iniquity being
practised there, nothing of those peculiar
features which wo expected to find in that
Inquisition. Here was beauty and splendor,
and the most porfect order on which my
eyes' ever rested. The architecture the
proportions were, perfect. The ceiling and
floors of wood were scoured until highly
polished. The marble floors were arranged
with a strict regard to order. There was
every thing to please the eye and gratify
a cultivated taste; but where were those
horrid instruments of torture of which wc
had been told, anU Vhcrc those dungeons in

to him, 'do as you please, Colonel,' and or
dered water to be brought accordingly
TJic slabs of marble wcro large and beau
tifully polished. When tlie water had been
poured over the floor, much to the dissatis
faction ofthe Inquisitors, a careful exami
nation was made of el-cry seam in the floor,
to seo if the water passed through. Pres
ently Col. Do Lile exclaimed that ho had
found it. Uy the side of one of these mar
ble slabs the water passed through fast, as
tnougn mere was an opening beneath.
All hands now were at work for further dis.
covery. I he officers, with their swords
and tho soldiers with their bayonets, seek
ing to clear out the seam and pry up the
slab. Others with the butts of their mus
kets striking the slab with all their might
to break it, while tho priests remonstrated
against our desecrating thc.ir holy and hcanti

carry ofJtbe odor.from these decaying Imil-
ics, In tjicso cells wo found tho remains of
some who had paid the debt ofnature; some
of them had been dead apparently but a
short time, while of other nothing remained
hut their bones, still chained to the floor
of their dungeon. In others we found the
living siinereriofevcry age and of both sexes,
froin thu younjr man and mafden to tlmso
of three score and ten years, all as naked
as when they were born into the world
Our soldiers immediately rjnnlied them
selves to releasing these captives of their
chains; stript themselves iu hart of their
own clotbnlg to cover those wretched be
ings, nnu were exceedingly anxious to bring
them up to the light of day. fiut tiwarc of
the danger, I insisted on their wants being
supplied, and being brought gradually to the
light as they could bear it.
When we had explored these cells, and
opened the prison doors of those who yet
survived, wc proceeded to explore another
room upon thn left. Here wo found the in-
strumcnls of torture, of every kind which
mo inuenuuy oijiicn or oevi Is con d invent.
t the sight of them the Yury of our soldiers
refused any lonser to be restrained!' Thov
declared that every inquisitor, monk nnd
soldier hould be put to the torture. We
did not attempt any longer to restrain them.
i licy commenced at once the work of tor-
turo with tho Holy Fathers. I remained
till I saw four different kinds of torture ap
plied, and then retired from tho awful scene,
which. terminated not. while one individual
remained of the former cuiltv inmates of
tins aiiliclinmber of hell, on whom thev
could wreak revenge. As soon as the poor !
sufferers from the cells ofthe Iquisitinn
could with safety be brought out of t hoir
prison to the light of day, (news having been
spread far and near, that numbers had been
rescued from the Inquisition,) all who had
been deprived of friends by the holy office.

some raw potatoes were found which it was

Again Providence visibly interposed his
arm. On the I3ih of March a barrel was
discovered under water in the cabin. One
ofthe men, Joseph Malore, of New Orleans,
who was an excellent swimmer, went down
and succeeded in bringing it to the surface,
nnd it was finally got on deck. To their in
expressible j'dy they found it filled with mo
lasses. Every mair'took a hedrty draught,
and found great relief.
On the evening of that day they drank
their last drop of water, and they were yet
many hundred miles from land. Death,
seemed nearer than ever. But God still
watched over' them with, paternal care- The
next day they had a rain squall and a turbu

It was said of Washington that his favorite
meal for supper was a tumbler or milk'and1
a piece of common! bread newly b"aked. '
This we think can e 'recommended for
those who arc desirous of sound shWfanrl
good health ; and tothoso whbsc nplites
have not been vitiated by high seasied
fodd, nothing can surpass it as acceptable to ;
the palate. For those who labor hard, and
require something substantial to restore
spent Strength, it 4s strong food ; to the man
of leisure it is light food; ?to the disordered
powers, it is simple food, and iu milk is
found a4 great corrective of ail unhinged
appetite; to the feeble it is light and mitfi-
cious food, and dreams and nightmare leave

and had frequently been under theneccssityj
of returning and reciprocating attentions.
This with the ride had fatigued him, and ISt
was desirous of a quiet supper and retire-:
