Chronic inflammation of the Kidneys and General De

constitutions which have been broken down by injudi
cious treatment, or juveniie irregularities. In general
terms, it is recommended in all those diseases which
arise front impurities of the blood, or vitiation of the
humors, of whatever name or kind.
Some of the above complaints may require some
assistant applications, which the circumstances of the
case will dictate ; but for a general remedy or Purifi
ratbr to remove the cause. T he Indian’s Panacea will
generally be found sufficient.
The following certificates, out. of hundreds similar
which might be procured are given to show the effect
of the Indian’s Panacea, in the various complaints
therein mentioned ; anti also to exhibit in the most sa
tisfactory manner its superiority over the syrups in
Charleston, Nov. 15,1831.
During the last winter and spring, I was afflicted
with a very severe and distressing Rheumatism, occa

pleasure in stating, that six bottles of Indian Pana
cea. restored me to perfect health, and I confidently
recommend it to all similarly afflicted.

The remembrance of youth is a sigh. —Ali.
Man hath a weary pilgrimage
As through the world he wends ;
And every stage from youth to age
Still discontent attends:
With heaviness he casts his eye
Upon'he road before,
And still remembers with a sigh
The days that arc no more.
To school the little exile goes,
Torn from his mother's arms—
What then shall sooth his earliest woes,
When novelty hath tost its charms ?
Condemned to suffer through the day
Restraints which no rewards repay,
And cares where love has no concern,’
Hope lengthens as she counts the hour*
Before his wished return.
From hard control and tyrant rules,
The unfeeling discipline of schools,
In thought he loves to roam ;
And tears will struggle in his eve,
While he remembers, with a sigh,
The comforts of his home.
Youth comes; the foils and cares oflifo
Torment the restless mind ;
Where shall the tired and harrassed heart
Its consolation find ?
Then is not youth, as fancy tells,
Life’s summer prime of joy ?
Ah no ! for hopes too long delayed,
And feelings blasted or betrayed,
The fabled bliss destroy ;
And vouth remembers with a sigh
The careless days of infancy.
Maturer manhood now arrives,
And other thoughts come on;
But with the baseless hopes ofyouth
Its generous warmth is gone ;
Cold calculating cares succeed,
The timid thought, the weary deed,
The dull realities of tru h ;
Back on the past he turns his eye,
Remembering, with an envious sigh,
The happy dreams of youth.
So reaches he the latter stage
Os this our motal pilgrimage,
With feeble step and slow ;
New ills that lattei state await,
And old experience learns too late,
That all is vanity below.
Life’s vain delusions are gone by,
its idle hopes are o’er,
Yet age remembers with a sigh
The days that are no more.
THE MOTHER.—by chimes swain.
A softening thought of other years,
A feeing link to hours
When life was ali too bright for tears,
And hope sang wreathed with flowers;
A memory of affections fled,
Ot voices heard no more ;
Stirred in my spirit when I read
That name of fondness o’er.
Oh, mother !—in that magic word
What loves and joys combine ?
What hopes, too oft, alas, deferred ’
What watchings—griefs—are thine 7
Yet, never, till the hour we roam,
By worldly thralls oppressed,
Learn we to prize that holiest home,
A living mother’s breast.
Ten thousand prayers at midnight pour’d
Beside our couch of woes ;
The wasting weariness endured
To soften our repose ;
Whilst never murmur marked thy tongue,
Nor toils relaxed thy care ! *
How, mother, is ihv he .* - ■uvm|,
■co pity and forbear ?
What filial fondness e’er repaid,
Or could repay the past?
Alas, for gratitude decayed !
Regrets that rarely last!
’Tts only when the dust is thrown
Thy blessed bosom o’er,
We muse on all thy kindness shown,
And wish wt'd lov’d the* more.
’Tis only when the lips are cold
We mourn—-with late regret,
’Mid myriad memories of old—
Tho days forever set;
And not an act, nor look nor thought,
Against thy meek control,
But with a sad retuemb’rance fraught,
Wakes anguish in the soul!
On every land, in every clime,
True to her sacred cause ;
Filled by that influence suolime
From which her strength she draws,
Still is the mother’s heart the same ;
The mother’s lot as tried ;
And, oh, may nations guard that name
With filial power and pride.
From the Laurel.
THE STAR AND THE LILY.
The sun stepped down from his golden throne,
And lay in the silent sea,
And the lily had folded her satin leaves,
For a sleepy tiling was she ;
What was the illy dreaming about ?
O what is that to you 1
And why did she open her drooping lid*
And look at the sky so blue ?
The rose is cooling her burning cheek,
In the lap of the breathless tide—
Thou hast many a sister fresh and fair,
That would he by the rose’s side;
He would love thee better than all the rest,
And he would be fond and true—
But the lily unfolded her weary lids, .
And looked at the sky so blue.
Now think thee, think thee, thou silly one ;
How fast will the summer glide,
And wilt thou wither a virgin pale,
Or flourish a blooming bride ?
O the rose is old and thorny and cold,
And he lives on the earth said she,
But the star is fair and he lives in the air,
And he shall my bridegroom be.
But what if the stormy cloud should come,
And ruffle ihe silver sea ;
Would he turn his eye from the distant sky ?
To smile on a thing like thee ?
O no, fair lily, he will not send
One ray from his far ofT throne,
The winds shall blow and the waves shall flow,
And thou wilt be left alone.
There is not a leaf on the mountain top,
Nor a drop of evening dew,
Nor a golden sand on the sparkling shore,
Nor a pearl in the waters blue,
That he has not cheered with his fickle smile,
And warmed with his faithless beam—
And will he be true to a pallid flower
That floats on the quiet stream ?
Alas for the lily ! sho would not heed,
But turned to the skies afar,
And bared her breast to the trembling ray,
That shot from the rising star ;
The cloud came over the darkened sky,
And over the waters wide ;
She looked in vain through the beating rain,
And sank in the stormy tide. O. W. H.
SHAKSPEARE —by edward everett.
With a reverence as deep as honesty or
manliness permits for the master geniuses of
our race* —a reverence nourished T>y the fond
and never intermitted study of their works,
I may say that I cutch from this very study
of their writings and characters, a conception,
that, high as they rose, they might have risen
higher. I can sometimes behold the soil ol the
world upon their snow-white robes, and the
rust of human passion upon the glittering edge
of their wit. It was long ago said by the great
Roman critic, that the good Homer sometimes
nods; —and Shakspeare, the most brilliant ex
ample unquestionably of a triumph over the
delects of education —mental and morai—
loo often exhibits traces of both. As he floats
on eagle’s wings along what he nobly calls

of his power to soar when he wi 1 up to the
rosy gates of the morning—he stoops, and
stoops, and stoops, till the tips of his graceful
pinions are sadly draggled in the mire<

* Coleridge,’ says Mr. Gill man, ‘ began the
use of opium from bodily pain, (rheumatism,)
and (or the same reason continued it tfll he
had acquired a habit too difficult under hi:*
own management to control. To him it was
tbe thorn in the flesh, which will be seen in
the following notes.’
4 1 have never loved evil for its own sake :
no! nor never sought pleasure for its own
sake, but only as the means of escaping from
pains that coiled around the body and wings
of an eagle! My sole sensuality was not to
be in pain.’—Note from Pocket Book. 4 The
History of my own Mind for my own Im
provement.’ Dec. 23d, 1824.
‘I wrote a lew stanzas three-and-twentv
years ago, soon after mv eyes had been open
ed to the true nature of the habit into which
I had been ignorantly deluded by the seem
ing magic effect of opium, in the sudden re
moval of a supposed rheumatic affection, at
tended with swellings in my knees, and pal
pitations of the heart, and pains all over tne,
by which I had been bed-ridden for nearly
six months. Unhappily, among my landlord’s
boons were a large parcel of Medical Re
views and Magazines. I had always a fond
ness (a common case, but most mischievous
turn, with reading men who are at all dys
peptic) for dabbling in medical writings, and
in one of these reviews met o case which I
fancied very much like inv own, in which a
cure had been afft-cted by the Kendal black
drop. In an evil hour I procured it—it
works miracles—the swelling disappeared,
the pains vanished; I was all alive, and all
around me being as ignorant as myself, no
thing could exceed my triumph. 1 talked of
nothing else, prescribed the newly discovered
panacea lor all complaints, and carried a bot
tle about with me, not to lose any opportu
nity of administering instant relief and speedy
cure to all complainers, stranger or friend,
gentle or simple. Need I say that my own
apparent convalescence was of .no long con
tinuance ; but what then ? the remedy was
at hand, and infallible. Alas! it is with a
bitter smile, a laugh of gall and bitterness,
that I recal this period of unsuspecting de
lusion, and how I first became aware of tbe
maelstrom, the fatal whirlpool, to which 1
was drawing, just when the current was al
ready bevond my strength to slem.

‘ From that moment I was the victim of
pain aiul terror; nor had I at anytime taken
the flattering poison as a stimulus, or for any
cravir.g after pleasurable sensations. I need
ed none, and, oh ! with what unutterable sor
row did I read the ‘ Confession of an Opium
Eater,’ in which .the writer, with morbid va
nity, makes a boast of what was my misfor
tune, for he had been faithfully, and with an
agony of zeal, warned of the gulf, and yet
wil'ingly struck into the current! Heaven
be merciful to him !’—April, 1826.
These are awful words—we shudder and
tremble as we read them. On the 7‘h day
of January, 1828, about four years and six
months before his death, there is a still more
rhara la a pnoKapri* in the Samson Ago
nistes, in which Milton is supposed on sufh
cient ground to have referred to himsell, that
in which the Chorus speaks of strictly tempe
rate men causelessy suffering the pains and
penalties of inordinate days. O ! if he had,
or rather if he could have, presented to him
self, truly and vividly,-the aggravation of
those pains, with the consciousness of their
having originated in errors and weaknesses
of his own ! Ido not say iliat he would not
have complained of his sufferings, for who
can be in those most trying sufferances of
miserable sensations, and not complain of
them ? but bis groans for the pain would have
been blended with thanksgivings to the sanc
tifying- spirit. Even under the direful yoke
of the necessity of daily poisoning by narco
tics, it is somewhat less horrible, through the
knowledge that it was not from any craving
for pleasurable animal excitement, but from
pain, delusion, error, of the worst ignorance,
medical sciolism, and when (alas! too late
the plea of error was removed from my
eyes,) from terror and utter perplexity and
infirmity —sinful infirmity, indeed, but yet not
a useful sin illness, that I brought my neck
under it. Oh! may the God to whom I
look for mercy through Christ, show mercy
on the author of the ‘ Confessions of an Opi
um Eater,’ if, as I have too strong reason to
believe, his book has !>een the occasion of se
ducing others into this withering vice through
wantonness. From this aggravation I have,
I humbly trust, been free as far as acts of
tny free will and intention are concerned;
even to the author of that work I pleaded
with flowing tears, and with an agony of
forewarning. He utterly denied it, but I
fear that I had even then to deter, perhaps,
not to forewarn.’
1 His principal ailments he owed much to
the state of the stomach, which was at that
time so delicate, that when compelled to
po to a large closet (shoe bin, its school name)
containing shoes, to pick out a pair easy to
his feet, which were always tender, and he
required shoes so large that he could walk in
them rather than with them, and the smell,
from the number in this place, used to make
him so sick that I have often seen him shud
der, even in late life, when he gave an ac
count of it. In tins note, containing an ac
count of himself at school, he says, ‘From
eight to Iburieen a playless day dreamer, a
hellue librorum, my appetite for which was
indulged by a singular incident: a stranger,
who was struck by my conversation, made
me free of a circulating library in King street,
Cheapside.’ This incident, indeed, was sin
gular: Going down the Strand, in one of his
day dreams, fancying himself swimming
across the Hellespont, thrusting his hands
before him as in the act of swimming, his
hand came in contact with a gentleman’s
pocket; the gentleman seized his hand, turn
ing round and looking at him with some an
ger, ‘ What! to young, and so wicked ?’ at
the same time accused him of an attempt to
pick his pocket; the frightened boy sobbed
out his denial of the intention, and explained
to him how he thought himself Leander
swimming across the Hellespont. The gen
tleman was so struck and delighted with the
novelty of the thing, and with the simplicity
of the boy, that he subscribed, as before
stated, to the library, in consequence of
which Coleridge was further enabled to in
dulge his love of reading. In his bathing ex
cursions he greatly injured his health, and re
duced his strength. In one of his bathing
exploits, lie swam across New River in his
clothes, and dried them in the fields on his
back; from these excursions commenced
those hddily sufferings which embittered the
rest of his life, and rendered it truly one of
sickness and strflering. * * * He was
to be lound during play hours often with the
knees of his breeches unbuttoned, and his
shoes down at the heel, Walking to and fro,
or sitting upon a step, as in a corner, deeply
engaged in sorrto hook. This had attracted
the nolice of Middleton, at that time a depu
ty Grecian, and going up to him one day,
asked ‘what was he reading?’ The answer
was, ‘ Virgil. 5 ‘Are you, then,’ said Middle
ton, ‘studying your lesson?’ ‘No!’ said
Coleridge, ‘I am reading it for pleasure/
for he had not yw arrived at Virgil in his
class studies. This struck Middleton as
something so peculiar, that he p entioned
it to the head matter, as Coieridge was then
m the grammar school, (Which is the lower
part ol the classical school,) and doing the
work of the lower boys. The Rev. James
Boyer, who was at that time head master, a
quick discerning ntan, but hasty and severe,
sent (or the master of the grammar school,
and inquired about Coleridge; from* him he
learnt that he was a dull and inapt scholar,and
that hp could not be made to repeat a single
rule of syntax, although he would give a rult*
in his own way. This brought Coleridge
before Boyer, and to this circumstance may
be attributed the notice which he afterward
took of him; the school ami llte scholar
were every thing to him, and ColeridgeV
neglect never went unpunished. I have*
often heard him say, that he was so ordinary
a looking boy, with his black head, that Boyer
generally gave hint at the end of a flogging
an extra cut, 4 for,’ said lie, ‘you are such an
ugly fellow!’ ’
The following glorious passage occurs in
Coleridge’s preface ‘o his ‘ Conciones ad
Populum.’ There was infinitely more truth
implied in it than he was aftewards disposed
‘‘There is a time to keep silence,* saith
Solomon ; hut f proceeded to the first
verac of the fourth chapter of the Ecclesias
tes, ‘and considered all the oppressions that
were done under the sun ; and behold the
tear of stieh as were oppressed, and they had
no comforter; and on the side of their op
pressors there was power,’ I concluded this
was not the time to keep silence; for truth
should be spoke at all times, but more es
pecially at ihnse time 6 when to speak the
truth is dangerous.’

THE TAKING OF ALGIERS.
In the devastation of war, when eities and
kingdoms yield to the sword of the conque
ror, individual miseries are lost sight of, m
the aggregate of suffering that such events
produce. In the broad blaze of glory which
the conquest lights up, no one stops to watch
the going out of an individual taper of human
life. The shout of the host of victors drowns
the death sigh of him who is yielding up his
breath for his country’s defence. Who is
he t and we put it to the consciences of our
readers, beseeching them to think, as they
would ask for sympathy in their own alflic
tions—who is he--and why not she? fur women,
too, must know that her sex suffers when a
city is stormed ; who is he, or she, that has
read of the breaking up of the ‘ nest of pi
rates’ by the French—that has seen the
‘sceptre depart’ from Ishmnel—that has care
fully read of the defence and its cost—of the
victory and the lives that purchased it—that
has afterwards sat down and thought so
lemnly of the individual misery which a con
quest ha 9 produced ? Come then, let us
enter into the house of affliction, where the
Mahometan mother is kneeling over the dead
body of her son—herself a widow—her lips
bathed in blood from the gaping wound on
the cold breast before her, and her streaming
eyes raised toward the saoird tomb nt which
her son had not yet bowed. No pen can
trace her feelings; they are the deep, unut
terable throbs of a mother’s heart; the inta
ffir>a!!(>n of man hath not conceived her an
guish. All a mother’s pains, in birth and
death, are hers alone. She has watched in
vain for one sign oflife ; she has called loud
ly to her first bom—her only son—but the
voiceless tongue hath returned no answer.—
She hath gazed with unutte r able fondness
upon his face, but his dim, glazed eye, hath
not moved in iho socket. She has pressed
her burning kisses on his lips; but their rigid
coldness had) sent back a chill to her heart.
She has laid her hands against hl heart; she
has pressed her bared bosom upon his manly
chest ; hut there is neither throbbing nor
warmth. The life sigh of her own pulsa
tion is unanswered. She screams aloud in
the bitterness-of her certain desolation; hut
there is no reply, no notice of sympathy re
turned—the echo ot her erv mingles with the
shouts of the victors. She sinks down in hit
ter consciousness that she is alone on earth,
childless and a widow. ‘Oh, had he but life
—could he but breathe a mother’s name,
though he were but idiotic or decrepit—could
he but give one sign of recognition, I would
drag him from the house where new ones
rule, and, like the persecuted Hagar, flee
away with him into the wilderness; good
angels would hear a mother’s erv, and waters
would spring up from the burning sands to
moisten bis parched lips.’ But he is dead!
and the convulsive spasms of her face show
that the life of a mother—even an Algerine
mother—is bound upon the existence of her
son. Is there one mother in America who
can doubt that every mother in Algiers who
has lost a son in the siege—how many did
lose son, father, husband, all !—felt less than
that? What an aggregate of misery
is a splendid conquest.
A GREEK LANDLORD—CORINTH.
From Stephens’s new ‘ Incidents of Travel.’
• * * Our servant had talked so much
of the hotel at Corinth, that perhaps the idea
of bed and lodging was rather too prominent
in our reveries as we approached the fallen
city. He rode on before to announce our
coming, and, working our way up the hill
through narrow’ streets, stared at by all the
men, followed by a large represent a fit',,, fro m
-the juvenile portion of the modern Corinthians,
and barked at by Hie dogs, we turned into a
large enclosure, something like a harnvard,
on which opened a ruined balcony forming
the entrance to the hotel. Demetrius was
standing before it with our host, as unpromi
sing a looking scoundrel as ever took a tra
veller in. He had been a notorious eaptairi
of brigands; and when his lawless band wns
broken up and half of its number hanged, he
could not overcome his disposition to pry
upon travellers, hut got a couple of mat reuses
and bedsteads, and set up a hotel at Corinth.
Demetrius had made a bargain P.,r us at a
price that made him hang his head when tie
told it, and we were so indignant at the ex
tortion that we at first relused to dismount.
Our host slood aloof, being used to such
scenes, and perfectly sure that, after storming
a little, we should he glad to take the ontv
beds between Padras and Athens. In the
end, however, we got the better both of him
and Demetrius; (or, as he had fixed separate
prices for dinner, beds, and broaleftist, we
went to a 1 ttle Greek coffee-house, and raised
half Corinth to cet us something to oat, and
paid him only for our lodging.
We had a fine afternoon before us, md mir
first movement was to the ruins of a temple,
the only monument of antiquity in Corinth.
The city has been so often sacked and plun
dered, that not a column of the Corinthian
order exists in the place from which it derives
its name. Seven columns of the old temple
are still standing, fluted and of the Doric
order, though wanting in height the usual
proportion to the diameter; built prohihlv
before that order had attained its perfection,
and long before the Corinthian order was
invented ; though when it was built, by
j whom, or to what god it was consecrated,
! antiquaries cannot agree in deciding. Con
trusted with these solitary columns o r
unknown antiquity are ruins of yestr
Houses falien, burned, and blackjvilh
as if the wretched had fled\
the btaze of their dwellings; and high au
the ruined city, now as in the days when tt. i
Persian and Homan invaded it, still lowers
the Acropolis, a sharp ami naked rock, rising
abruptly a thousand feet from the earth,
inaccessible and impregnable under the sci
ence of ancient war; and in all times of inva
sion and public distress, from her earliest
I history down to the hhnidy days of the late
revolution, the refuge of Ht inhabitants.
a It was late in the afternoon when we set
out for tlie Acitpolis. About a mile frotlv
the city we came to the foot of the kill, and \
ascended hv a sleep and difficult path, wilh>
many turnings and windings, to the first gate.
►Having been in the saddle since early in the
morning, we stopped several times to rest,
and each time lingered and looked out with
admiration upon the wild and beautiful sce
nery around us; and we thought of the fre
quently recurring times armies
had drawn up before the our feet, and
the inhabitants, in terror and confusion, had.
hurried up this path and taken refuge within
the gate before us. *
Inside the gate were Ihe ruins of a city,
and here, too, we saw the tokens of ruthless
war; the Are-brand was hardly yet exrin
gui-died, and the hou-es were in ruins.—
Within a few years it had been the strong
hold an I refuge of infidels and Christians,
taken and retaken, destroyed, rebuilt, arui
destroyed again, and the ruins of Turkish
mosques ami Christian churches are mingled
together in undisfmguishahle confusion. This
enclosure is abundantly supplied with water,
issuing from the rock, and is capable of con
taining several thousand people. The foun
tain of Pyrene, which supplies the Acropolis, \
called the most salubrious in Greece, is cele
brated as t fiat nt which Pegasus was drinking
when taken by Bellerophon. Ascending ,
among ruined and deserted habitation*, we ‘
came to a second gate flanked bv towers.—
A wall about two miles in circumfi rence en
closes the whole summit of the n ek, inclu
ding two principal points which still rise above
the rest. One is crowned with a tower, the
other with a mosque, now in ruins; proba
bly erected where once stood a heathen tem
ple. Some have mistaken it for a Christian
church, but all agree that it is a place built
and consecrated to divine use, and that, for
unknown ages, men have gone up to this
cloud-capped point to worship their Creator.
It was a sublime idea to erect on this lofty
pinnacle an altar to the Almighty. Above
us were only the unclouded heavens; the
sun was setting will) that brilliancy which at
tends his departing glory nowhere hut in the
East; and .he sky was glowing a lurid red,
as of some great conflagration. The scene
around and below was wnndmusly beautiful.
Mountains and rivers, seas and islands, rocks,
forests and plains, thrown together in perfect
wantonness, and yet in the most pefect har
mony, and every feature in the landscape
consecrated by ihe richest associations. On
one aide of the Saronic Gulf, with its little
islands, and JEgina and Sslamis, stretching
off to ‘ Sunium’s marble height,’ with the ru
ins of its temple looking out mournfully upon
the spa ; on the other, the Golf of Corinth
or Lepanto, bounded by the dark aPd dreary
mountains of Cythseron, where Acteon, ga
zing nt the goddess, was changed into a stag,
and hunted to death hv his own hounds ;
and where Bacchus, with his train of satyrs
and frantic bacchantes, celebrated his orgies.
Beyond were Hel con, sacred to Apollo and
the Muses, and Parnassus, covered with
snow. Behind us towered a range of moun
tains stretching away to Argos amt the an
cient Sparta, and in front was the dim outline
of the lemple bf the Acropolis at Athens. —
The shades of evening gathered thick around
‘* while we remained on ihe top of the
Acropolis, and it was dark long before ive
readied our locanda.
Go to Church. —There is no one tl ing
which helps to establish a man’s character
and standing in soeienv, more than a steady
attendance at church, and a proper regard
for the first day of the week. Every head
of a family should go to church, as anexamp e
to its members, and every branch of a family
should go to church, in imitation of tHe exam
ple of parents who have loved them, and
watched over their best interests. Lounging
in streets and bar rooms on the sabbath is a
bominable, and deserves severe censure, be
cause it lays the foundation of habits which
ruin and soul. Many a young’
man can date the cmmnencment of his dissi
pation, which made him a burden to himself
and his friends, and an ohjict of pity in the
sight of his enemies, to his Sunday debauch
ery. Idleness is the mother of drunkeness—
the Sabbath is to young people generally an
idle day. therefor e if it be not propeily kept, it
were better struck out of existence.
Go to Church !—lf you are a young man
just entered upon business, it will establish’
your credit : what capitalist would not soon
er trust anew beginner, who instead of dissi
pating his time, his character and his money
in dissolute company, attended to his busi
ness on business days, an<l on the Sabbath np
peared in the house of God. Go to obureh !
with a contrite heart, and bending a knee at
the throne of your Maker, pour out a sincere
thank offering for the mercies of the past
week,— Balt. Pat.
Henry Clay’s doings with the great bank. —
By the examination of the books of the
Bank of the United States, it has been proved
that Henry Clay has received from the
mother bank seventeen thousand dollars, be—
sides what he has received from the branches;
which it is supposed amounts to not far from
twenty thousand more. This he has received*
as payment for services as an attorney for
the hank, in defending its actions in courts of
law. This may all be perfectly honest. Btrt
when it is known that Clay once opposed the
same Frank on constitutional grounds,men can
not helpasfci’ g vvhat has altered, his opinions?
Daniel Webster also opposed the U. States
Bank on constitutional grounds,and rre,ioo,ha*>
received, first and last, abouf flirty thousand
dollars from ti.e bank for services as an attor
ney, and nmv he is a hank man. What has
changed him ? How much Mr. Bond has re
ceived we dt> not know. This we do know—
he is the hank’s attorney.
