was more virulent; and as the atmosphere

Dr Audrand, of Paris, has communica
ted to the Academy of Sciences, the fitl
lowing interesting letter upon the connec
tiou between the Cholera and electricity:
“ Paris, June 1, 1849.
Throughout t lie varying courses if the
ravages of the Cholera in Paris, that is to
say during the past three months nearly,
I have studied the action if the electric
machine daily, in order to satisfy inysell
whether there is not a fixed connection
between the intensity of that sc urge and
the absence of the electric fluid usually dif
fused through ut the atmosphere.
The machine which has been the ob
ject of my daily observations is a very
p .werful <>ne. At ordinary times it throws
•off after two or three turns of live wheel,
denoting sparks from 2 to 24 inches in
length. lat first observed that from the
commencement of the epidemic it was im
possible for me to produce this result sR
During the months of April and May
the sparks obtained with great difficulty
never exceeded seven tenths of an inch,
and the variations agreed very closely
with lie irregularities of the cholera.—
This supplied at once a strong g ound of
belief that 1 was close upon the important
fact I sought to establish ; yet 1 was not
quite convinced, since the variable mois
ture of the atm sphere might have caused
the irregulari ies of the machine.
I waited, therefore, with impatience,
tho coming fine we ithei and heat, to con
tinue m> observations with more certainty.
Heat and fine weather a? length Came, and
to my amazement the machine, though
often eferred to, far from denoting, us
should have been the case, an increase of
electricity, only gave more feeble indica
tions ofi to such a degree, that during the
days of the 4th, sth and 6th of June it
was impossible to obtain more than slight
■cracklings, without sparks, and at length,
ou the 7th, the machine remained entirely
silent. This new decrease of tho electric
fluid coincided perfectly, as is well known,
with the violence of the cholera For my
part, I felt appalled ra her than surprised,
mv conviction was fixed, ad I saw in it
the result •fa clearly estab ished fact.
It may be imagined with what anxiety,
iu these critical instances, 1 consulted the
machine, the sad and truthful witness to a
great calamity. At length, on the morn
ing of the Bth, feeble sparks reappeared,
tlieir intensity increased from hour to hour,
and 1 perceived with joy, that the life-giv
ing fluid was returning into the atmosphe
ric void. Towards evening a storm an
nounced to Paris tha' electricity had re
entered its domain ; in my view the chol
era was vanishing with the cause that pro
duced it. The next day, Saturday, the
9th, my experiments were continued, and
every thing had then returned to its pro
per condition ; the machine at the sliglit
esttouch threw out brilliant sparks with
ease, and, it might almost he staid, with

The attention of tho render is directed to
the very able reply of Guv. Towns, to the inter
rogatories propounded to him, which will be
found in another column. We have repeatedly
expressed our views pn most of the subjects dis
cussed in this letter, and w ill therefore only add
that in our view he takes the true ground, which
should he maintained by the South, as one man.
He speaks as becomes the Governor of Georgia,

carry out these principles, he will not, hy any

Confession of Elislin Reece.
The following is the confession of Elisha
Rf.ece, who was convicted at the July Term of
Bilib Superior Court,lß49, of the murder of Mrs.
Ef.lem Pratt, in this county on the 16th of May
last; made at bis own request in the presence of
Thomas Bagby, Deputy Sheriff; Willis If.
Hughes, County Jailor; Dr. R. McGoi.drick,
the County Surgeon, and taken down hy W. K
DeGnAFfENREtn, Esq , at halfpast 9 o’clock, on
tho morning of the day of his execution, Friday,
September 7th, 1849:
“ I was born in York District, S C , but left
there and went to Mecklenbuig County, N. C ,
where I married and remained some lime. 1
finally left and came to Wilkinson county, in
this State, where I remained for about twelve
months and then removed to the Cherokee coun
try and resided there until the first of this year,
when I came to Bibb county, to the place where
I was living when thecrime was committed, for
which l ain about to forfeit my life. I am the
father of seven or eight children—have been
twice married —my last wife is s'.ill living, and
at her daughter’* in Floyd county. I came to
this county on the 4th of January last nnd rented
a house from Jons 11. Davis, near the residence
ofD.ivit) Gukganus, the father of the unfortu
nate woman whom 1 murdered. This difficulty
commenced by my having heard two mornings
iu succession, some person halloo at a camp near
my house The second morning I saw the wo
man, Mis Ellen J it tTT, leave her father's house
and walk up the road by the fence and go into
the'woods just above the camp and did not re.
turn un’il after sun-up. I went to Mr. Guhgancs'
well for water and whilst drawing the water she
came out the woods to the house. I said to her,
in jest, tliAt I had seen a sight that morning.—
She asked me What sight I had seen ?—and 1 re
plied that il was useless to tell her, as she knew
herself Her father and her mother were present
This led to a quarrel and haul feelings between
the family and myself. About a week after
wards, and on the day of the murder, I started to
a blacksmith's shop, to have some work done
and to have it finished hy the time I should call
for it. Oil my return from the shop I stopped a!
Mr. Gurganus', to get some tilings I had left,
and Mrs. Pratt saw me as I approached the
gate. Ihe told tne nor to come in, aud abused
me very much. After this I went home and
commenced ploughing, and old Mrs. Gukganus
carrot, brought my iliings and threw t item over
the fence. I was drinking all this time, nnd
when I quit ploughing, was qtihe overcome willi
liquor. I started to Mr. Davis', to carry the
plough home, and carried my flask to get it filled
at the grocery, on my way to Davis’. I got the
liquor, went to the workshop, and while there
saw Mrs. Pratt pass, going towards home. It
struck nte that site had been to Esquire Ri lev’s,
after a Warrant,as I hud heard she had threaten
ed to take me with one. I left the shop and
wont to Hop Da via’, to see if she had lire War
rant. Davis had told me that if she did take
me, he would stand rny security. Davis told
me “she had got a Warrant for he went with her
(i gel it.” I asked him what kind of a Warrant
it was ?—and he told me it was a Peace Warrant.
1 then asked DA vis to take a dram—he refused
hut I took one. I then told him that they
(meaning old man Gurganus and his family,)
could but get what little I had and my life too.—
After this I think 1 went home, got my gun, and
in my way met Major Armstrong. When I
got near the gate, the old man entne out and ask
ed me what business I had there ? I made.some
reply. The old man said something else—l
jerked the gate open and struck him with the
gun. Just at this time Mrs. Pratt ran tut and
I shot her. I went home—knew that I had done
something wrong—thought I would escape, and
started—but changed my mind, and was return
ing home when I was taken If I had been sober
it never would have occurred. I feel resigned
to my fate, and hope it will be a warning to ail
who shall see me executed Signed,
At bout half past 1 o'clock yesterday, Rr.r.CE
was executed, in the presence of several thous
and persons, of all grades and both sexes. lie
met his fate, wo learn, with the utmost fortitude.

J EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF ASTHMA.
Blocntsvili.e, Jones County, Ga., )
August 7th, 1849. y
Dr. M. S. Thomson —Dnir Sir —Being under
the impression that a short statement relative to
my case might he productive of good to many
that are now afflicted as 1 have been, and beir.o
desirous of adding mv testimony in favor of von r
system of practice and skill in curing disease, 1
have concluded to give it, desiring, if von think
proper, to have it published to the world.
In September, 1815, I was attacked with ,‘lstk
ma, which continued to return at intervals, more
or less frequent, for two years. I applied to
some of tho most eminent mineral physicians iu
the Slate of Mississippi, where I resided, but
without benefit—for I continued to get worse—
so muc h so, that from Ist September, 1847, I
had an aitaek every night , with only five excep
tions, til! February, 1849. During this long pe
riod of nearly eighteen months, mv condition
was one of terrible suffering, compelled as I
w as, to sit up almost all the time trying to catch
my breath, which every minute seemed as if it
w ere to be tho last : indeed, I have been for ten
days at a time that I dared not place my bead
upon a pillow, wheezing and breathing in a
manner to have been beard over a bundled
Having exhausted the skill and means of the
Allopathic practitioners, like a drowning man
catching at straws,! resolved to employ a Homoe
opathic Doctor, who fur a time, treated my case;
hut alas! lie also failed and left me iri the very
depths of despair.
In this condition I left Mississippi and entne to
Georgia, and in January of this year, as a forlorn
hope, placed myself under your ;-are in Macon.
Yot; ’mere saw, with many others, my condition,
which for a while,was just »s described. I uas
reduced to nearly skin nnd hone, weighing only
110 lbs , mv general health having suffered se
verely from the repeated attacks of my ft il tor
mentor ; hut it was not long before I commen
ced improving. At first. I would miss one night,
then two, then more ; my general health also
improved, until now, I tint proud to say, that
through your instrumennalitv, I enjoy excellent
health— have hail no attack of Asthma since tlte
first week in March, and now weigh 145 lbs.,
my ilstt and standard of weight in health.
Since then, I have exposed myself during all
this rainy season to all weathers, without being
attacked, which fully justifies and warrants me
in making tnis statement, requesting its publica
tion, trusting that others similarly situated, may
he admonished to cense looking for a cure where
it cannot he found, hut resort at once to the means
that have so happily, and in such a limited peri
od restored me to health.
With abounding feelings of gratitude, respect
and esteem, I remain vnurs sincerely,

Dr. M. S Thomson —Dear Sir : Willi inex
pressible gratitude, I drop \ou these lines .Since
I received your Medicines, and commenced fol
lowing your prescription, my health is so im
proved that Ido not now feel the least symptoms
of disease, my morbid app'titc left tne on the
commencement of taking your medicines: every
tiling 1 eat now agrees with me, and I am satis
fied with a common meal.
My Bplkkn was very much enlarged, and my
kidneys failed todo tlieir office when 1 last wrote
you, but these are now corrected
The miserable restlessness that was my lot of
nights, has left me, and I now sleep sweetly ;
indeed my whole system is regular»and easy.
8o sudden was the change,that my friends, (those
if them who did not know that I was taking
your medicine,) were astonished on meeting
with meat the improvement in my health
When I compare my present condition with
my miserable condition a few months ago, I can
not express the gratitude I feel toward you. I
now enter into conversation with life, ns I once
did, and the same zeal that once burned in my
heart for the Church has been kindled afresh,
with my mind freed from that gloom, inactivity
and forgetfulness, whirl) disease It ad engendered,
and I yet hope to live long to preach the un
searchable tidies of Christ. 1 have yet some
medicines left, &c. I am, dear sir, yours grate

William Armstrong, of the a&id City, being duly
sworn, doth depose and say that he *l3 a practical
Diuggist and Chemist. That some time in the latter
part of May, or first of June, 1819, a man by the name
0* Jacob Townsend, who at that time was a book and
pamphlet peddler, called upon deponent, at the house
of Mr. Thompson, No 12 Hudson-street, where depo
nent boarded,*and requested deponent to write hirn a
recip© by which to make a Syrup of Sarsaparilla.
Deponent further says, that he became acquainted
with said Townsend at the olllce of Theodore Fester,
Esq., Book Publisher, with whom said Townsend
dealt That said Townsend had had frequent converse
tioiis with dei .r.cnt inspecting :i;e manufacture of an
article of Sarsaparilla to he sold under the name of Dr
That said Townsend stated he was an old man, and
poor, and was not fit for hard labor—and wished to
make some money, in order to livo easy in his old
days, and that, if Sarsaparilla under the naine of Town
send sold so well, and so much money was made by
it, he could see no reason why he might not make
something out of it too. (his name being Townsend,)
if he could get a capable person to prepare a recipe,
and manufacture it tor him. Deponent in on®‘ol the
conversations asked said Townsend if he was related
to Dr. 8. P. ToU uFcnJ, to which he replied, that he
knew Dr. 9. P. Townsend would be down on him after
ho should commence But that he did not care for
him, as he had formed a co-partnership with men who
could furnish the requisite amount of capital—and was
well prepared to defend himself agaiost any attack
that might be made on him.
Deponent fuither say*, that pursuant to the request
of said Jacob Townsend, ho wrote a recipe lor thft
maaufiictuie of a hyrup of Sarsaparilla, ana gave it to
him. Suj l Town eud observed that bo wanted to
make a s; eciniei) to exhibit t<» his partners for their
approval, as he w ished to gratify them in every thing,
a.4 they furai- lied all the capital—Raid Townsend also
told that the bottles they w ere to us*, were
to be of tho same size and shape "as Dr. 9. P. Town
send’*, and deponent, at the lequest of suid Jacob
Ton-trend, went to the office of Dr. 5 P. Town-end,
and procured one of his labels.
And dep j.ient further says, that be has been inform
