only about the 20th of an inch ; and the Cholera had ceased here. As the atmos phere became more heavy, the Cholera was more virulent; and as the atmosphere became lighter the Cholera ceased. In my articles on Motion, I have sug gested what Dr. Audrand has proven to be the case. 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 oncea 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 dt> iglit, as if aware of the gOnd tidings it was bringing/' I! a 1 this he (rue, tve have in (liebarom eter and Electric machine two oracles, which if consulted will give the unerring truth in response that the fatal epidemic is approaching, is present, is departing, or departed, and we must look to the client-, ist, when Nature takes such freaks, to fur. fish us, for the time, with an artificial at roosphere better suited fjr our respira tion. The American Flag at Frankfort — On the 26th of July, the flag of tho Uni ted States was displayed from the balcony ol the American Ambassador’s house at Frankfort, Germany, (Mr. Donelson,) with the sass wrapped in crape, in mourning for the death of the Ex-President.

Important Correspondence. 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, as well ns one of her loyal sons, and should the time unfortunately come, and we fear it is lins tening upon us, when it shall be necessary to carry out these principles, he will not, hy any means, stand alone in their defence. We have anxiously looked for Judge Hill's reply, but line! not received it the time of closing our paper. When it is received vve shall lose; no time in giving it a conspicuous place in our columns. NoMItrATIOKS.—At a meeting of the Whig party held in this city on Saturday last, Messrs James A.Nisiif.t and Roland Bivins, were nominated as candidates for the next Legislature to lie run by tbc Whigs of Bihb county. 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, ELISHA REECE.” 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.

CtOM MENT IS UN NEC I >.B AU V-A sother 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. STATEMENT: 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 yards. 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, Cyrus l holmes. mpf-W Terms, &c., see advertisement in another column. nug 18 33 St:ir Cnudlrs. \NEW Article, much approved of, just re . ceived and for sale hv june 16 GEO.

It is too late in the day for men to school themselves into the repression of Jieir convictions : Quincy, Florida, April 10th, 1819. 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.

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.

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.
