... 'amputation of a limb.
-The editor of the Bangor Courier gives
tin account' of a surgical operation in that
city, which he witnessed on Saturday the
patient. having been previously thrown into
tho magnetic sleep by Dr. Deare. The op
eration was the painful one of amputating
tt'leg and-was performed by Dr. Hosca
ltTch, assisted by several other gentlemen,
upon Luther Carey, whose leg, from in fancy
had been deformed, nnd had caused much
pain nnd inconvenience. The editor of the
Courier says :
.''During the operation the patient com
plained of a sensation in the. bottom of his
iv.ui, us mougn some one was pricking it,
nnd . at one jime, for n brief, period, appear
ed (o be rousing from the magnetic state,
mill half conscious, by suspicion at least,
ih.a,t the operation had commenced, and at
this, time there was quite a struggle and
much muscular action, but he was soon
thrown more fully into the magnetic state,
and was then quite unconscious of what
was going on ; entering into conversation
respecting the operation, and proposing that
it.be postponed to the next week, &c, end
insisting, even after tho leg was amputated,
that ,he would not have it done until it was
fully pnrajyzcd, at the same time expressing
some, doubt whether the Doctor would be
able to accomplish this. After the opera
tion had been performed, and the limb
dressed, Mr- Carey was placed in bed, being
still; iq the magnetic state, and was induced
tossing. His aged, widowed mother was
called, and entered the room just as he was
singing with much zeal, which greatly af
fected the 'aged woman, and she burst into
tears.. Mr; Carey was now taken out of tho
magnetic sleep, and on rousing up appeared
quite startled on seeing so much company
present; and, speaking to his sister and
to. his mother, a shade of sadness passed
over his cpuntcnance, as he told them he
had postponed having the operation perform
ed until the Doctor should be more success
ful in paralyzing his leg. A passing smile
over their countenances led him to suspect
there might he something in the wind, and
it then occurred to him that he was in bed,
and in attempting to rise, he was cautioned
not to do it, .upon, which he remarked, that
perhaps his leg was off, as hu was placed in
ttjjd. Upon being assured of the fact, he in
great glee crjed out, "Good I am glad the
old leg is off!" He then stated that the on
lyensalion lie had experienced was like
that of some oue pricking the bottom of his

the Indians from our Northwest frontier,
and infighting against the British ddrilig

ought to be supported by the Democratic
party for Ihc President of tho United States."
A brother Loco Foco moved to amend tho
resolution by striking out tho name of
''Lewis Cass," and inserting the name of
".Martin Van Burcn ;' which motion, alter
an animated discussion, prevailed. Some
one, called for the reading of the resolution
ns .amended ; whereupon, tho Secretary, in
a loud voice, commenced reading "Where
as, General Martin Van Burcn emigrated to
the West from New Hampshire in early life
with his knapsack on lib back, nnd un
sheathed his sword in repelling the Indians
and fighting against the British i" By
the time the Secretary had got thus far, the
absurdity of the thing became so manifest,
that tho same Loco Foco who moved the
amendment sprang to his feet, exclaiming,
"tut, tut, tut, Mr. Chairman, that'll never
do I move to lay the affair on the table,"
and there it was laid accordingly.
Lamentable Occurrence. On Salurday
morning last, Mr. Albert Haydcn, one of
the drivers on the Plymouth mid Boston 1
Line of stages, left Plymouth at the usual
hour. About half a mile beyond thu Scitu-
ate half-way house, he stopped his team and
gotoir the coach. Two lady passengers in
the coach supposed be dismounted to adjust
a harness or something of the kind, and
they therefore remained some ten minutes, '
when wondering what could be the trouble, '
they looked out of the coach, and saw liny-'
den lying upon the ground between the
wheel horses and the leaders. They then .
cot out, and perceiving that he was motion-.
less, one of the ladies stood by the horses,
while the other went back for assistance. 1
It was procured, and Hayden was put into'
the coach, and carried to the house of Gran-,
ville Gardner, Esq., ngent for the stage pro-'
prictors, where Dr. Underwood of Hingham
was called in, and he decided that Hayden
had suffered a shock of the palsy. Oue en-1
tire half of his body, head and limbs, is pal-,
sicd, wc understand, and he now remains in .
a very feeble state, though sensible. In re-,
ply to questions put to him, it is learned t
that he got off from the coach because he
felt sick. When taken up, he still had hold
of the reins, It is not a little remarkable
that the horses stood perfectly quiet nearly
half an hour, whilo Hayden was extended
upon the snow between the leaders and the
wheel horses. Had they run, the horses

The distress among the poor at Montreal

was so intensely cold that the farmers in the
vicinity would not venture out, to bring
wood to market. This, as was to be antici

price, but also caused an absolute scarcity.

said it was his duty to destroy the imple
