of Cutaneous Affection, Chronic Catarrh, Headache,
proceeding from vitiation; Affections of the Liver;
Chronic inflammation of the Kidneys and General De
bility, caused by a torpid action of the vessels of the
skin. It is singularly efficacious in renovating those
constitutions which have been broken down by injudi
cious treatment, or juvenile irregularities, in general
terms, it is recommended in all those diseases which
arise from impurities of the blood, or vitiation of the
humors, of whatever name or kind.
Some of tho above complaints may require some
assistant applications, which the circumstances of the
ca’so will dictate ; but for a general remedy or Purifi
cator to remove the causey The Indian’s Panacea will
ireneraUy 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 ; and 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
sioned by exposure in bad weather. I now take great
pleasure in stating, that six bottles of Indian Pana
cea, restored me to perfect health, and I confidently
recommend it to all similarly afflicted.
JOHN FERGUSON, King st.
Charleston, July 12,1831.
I was afflicted four years with an ulcer in the leg,
occasionally accompanied with erysipelatious inflama
tion and an excessive pain in the leg and ancle joint.
Several eminent Physicians exerted their skill upon it,
but without permanent benefit. In this case, five bot
tles of the Indian Panacea made a perfect cure.

—The undersigned has been appointed
to investigate the validity of the assents of the

certain contract, entered into by James C. Watson,
Edward Hanriek, William Walker, Peter C. Harris,
and John Peabody, with certain chiefs ot the Creek
tribe of Indians, on the 28>h of August, 1836, which
was approved by the late President of the united
States on special conditions, one of which was that
each individual Creek, whose land was covered by it,
should agree thereto. It lias also been made his duty
to examine into the validity of such prior contracts for
reservations embraced within the contract ot 28th of
August, as claim in preference to it.
Notice is given to all concerned, who intend to im
pugn the said assents, or any of them, or to set up
contracts adverse to that of J. C. Vv at sc n and others,
that they are required to file memorials with the under
signed, at his office in Washington city, on or before
the Ist day of November next; after that day memo
rials will not be received.
It is further required that each memorial shall relate
to a specific case, and be made and filed by a person
interested in the particular contract it is intended to
establish, or in the tract of land to which the assent
obtained to the contract of 28th August relates.
When these preliminary steps have been taken, am
ple time will be allowed the parties on both sides to
examine witnesses, under such rules and notice to the
adverse party as shall be hereafter prescribed.and also
to file such written evidence and arguments as they
may be advised are proper, in support of their several
claims; of all which, public notice, by advertisement
in the newspapers,-will be given immediately after the

‘ In the year 1212, as we learn from an Italian an
tiquary, a general belief prevailed in Germany, that
the Med it erranean sea was to be dried up, that be- |
lievers might pass to Jerusalem on foot. Italy was
crowded with German pilgrims.’ — Walpole.
A sound went upward upon startled ears,
Like music of some mighty instrument,
Os that commanding and great harmony
That takes the spirit captive. From the sky
A voice broke o’er the mountain and the vale,
And rushing river with its castled crag,
Telling, as through a prophet’s stirring trump,
That the Mid Sea, which lash’d the Holy Shore,
Should to its grave go back—and a great path
Open for chariots o’er its vanish’d tides—
The jewels of the ocean, from thtir caves,
Flash to a wond’ring world—and the vast deep
Bare its unnutnber’d mysteries to man !
A nation woke. Along the shadowy Rhine,
As though another ‘ star’ upon the air,
With its unmaster’d glory, had come forth,
Men startled as from slumber—and away
They gather’d to the Capitol—and Rome
Grew dark with pilgrims—and all Italy
Was crowded with believers—and they stood,
Pressing the classic shores—with rounding eyes,
Gazing upon the quivering expanse,
V\ ilh its unalter’d blue—and the dull dirge
Os its unshrinking waters. Still they gaz’d
With that sad fixedness of spirits bow’d,
Which rest hearts only token. Stiii away
To the lost land—the sainted sepulchre—
They gaz’d with eyes though tearless, yet how full !
They gaz’d—but the sea fell not—not a wave
•Sunk from its royalty—but on. and far,
Deep, calling unto deep, it swung and swept,
Unrein’d, from shore to shore !
Alas ! for man !
How strong his fai’h—bow weak Ins fantasies ;
What riddle, with his * brief authority,’
And his few days, he reads to all the earth !
He would not trust his spirit for the sky,
To promises of Him who plan’d the stars,
And gave the heavens their glory. Not to Him
Would he give up his life, who for him died,
And pass’d within the veil. He asks not first
That lighting through the Valley of the Dead,
Without which hope is darkness ! Yet behold!
A pilgrim from the spectre land, he leans
Upon the broken shafts of a past world,
As waiting for the earth with that great noise
To pass away, which prophets sung of old ;
Believing that the blue deep shall roll back
Into its vasty caverns—and a path
Open from Italy to Palestine,
O’er which the pilgrim army shall tread forth,
With staff and cowl, as o’er the torrid plain,
Up to the portals of Jerusalem!
Ah ! man—thy pilgrimage must be to shores,
Where life, hencefotih, must thrive with memory,
And thy years cloud them with forgetfulneess !
Where thy dim dreams must lie down with the faith
That can bid oceans to a sepulchre,
And stay the elements Back to thy home !
And with God’s volume, and its worship there,
Yet find a Calvary among its hills !
From the New Yorker.
THE EARLY” LOST.
I stole to the grave of one
1 had lov’d in my happier years,
And tarried till each idle gazer was gone,
Then I water’d her turf with my tears :
For she was the beauteous ark
In which I had ventur’d my all—
Too rude blew the winds for the summer-built bark,
My hopes were all quench’d in her pall.
I knelt ’neath the funeral tree,
That fitfully stream’d in the wind,
Raving aloud, all unheeded by me—
The body felt not, but the mind ;
For I thought on those rosy-wing’d days
When we roam’d in the vale of our youth ;
Where citron groves shaded her form from the rays
Os the life-teeming sun of the South.
I thought on her genius and worth ;
I thought on her white swelling btow,
Round which the base worms of the earth
Were revelling greedily now :
A shroud and cold worms for the clay,
But a heavenly crown for the soul;
And a bower which can never decay,
Whore the waters cf melody roll.
Place no stone o’er the bed of her rest,
For she had small part with the world ;
Though the cold clay now presses Iter breast,
Her spirit’s young wings are unfurl’d :
Oh ! she was a fair bird of spring,
Les, behind in a bleak, wintry clime,
Where cold breezes faded the hue of its wing,
Once so bright in the soft vernal time.
Oh! she was a bright Eden flower,
Severed far from its nurturing earth,
Which sprang into life in a warm April shower,
But withered away from its birth :
The bird to anew spring hath fled ;
The flower in anew Eden smiles,
Whose vales are ne’er water’d with tears for the dead,
Where the weary worn rest from their toils.
A dirge, when nv heart is in wo,
My frail harp will breathe o’er her tomb ;
For though dark be my pathway below,
Her memory cart silver its gloom.
Alas ! for the love that lies buried
In the wreck-covc-r’d tide of the past !
Alas for time’s flood, which hath hurried
My soul on its voyage so fast! W. F.
MEETING AND PARTING.
A GLEE COMPOSED FOK THE ADMIRED AIR,
‘ SPARKLING AND BRIGHT.’
Sparkling and bright
With silver light
Are the stars in the blue sky gleaming,
And the moon’s pale ray
On her azure way
Is soft as an infant’s dreaming.
Then meet to-night
In the mellow light
The moon and stars are flinging,
And light be our feet
As the arrow so fleet
From the bow of the hunter ringing.
Then meet to-uight, &c.
While thus we sing,
With rapid wing
Old Time on bis flight is speeding ;
And soon we must part,
Though careless of heart—
We wist not the moments’ receding.
Then part to-night
With hopes as bright
As the moonbeams round us playing ;
And oft as we meet
Each other to greet,
May jov wing the moments unstaying !
We part to-night, &c.
ANTONIO ALLEGRI DA CORREGGIO.
‘ Here conies Antonio, with his new pic
ture,’ said Maddelena to her father Nicolo ;
‘ do, clear father speak kindly P> him.’
‘ Nay, daughter,’ replied Ntcolo, ‘ thou
canst not expect me to be as dove-like as thy
self. I will speak to him as one man may
speak to another. It would have been well
for thee, had I not yielded to thy foolish fancy
in the first place. Hadst thou married Pietro,
thou wouldst have taken thy proper siation
in the world, and been mistress of one of the
finest Inns in Correggio. I should not see
thee, as I now do, wanting the necessaries of
‘Father,’ said Maddelena, ‘ thou art mis
taken ; I want nothing. lam the happiest
being in the world.’
‘ Then why dost, thou weep?’ said Nicolo,
for the tears of the young wife were falling
like a morning shower.
‘Look '.’said she, ‘ Antonio is just coming
up the ltiii—see how feeble he walks—he can
j scarcely carry his picture—ah, he stops to
re-s t —do you see how pale he is ?’
‘ Y r es, yes, ;he had better taken my
advice, and worked at my trade; I offered to
give him a years instruction for no remunera
tion but his services; but nothing would do—
he must paint pictures, that are good for no
thing in the world. Now jars and pipkins
and milk-pans and flower-pots are good for
something, and will always bring money.’
‘ Yes, father, but Antonio’s work will bring
him fame —glory.’
‘Fame, glory! nonsense! canst thou live
on these commodities?’
‘ We want but very little to live upon : in
deed. father, if Antonio were well, I should
not have a wish ungratified. He is so kind,
so gent'e. so fond of our little Giovanni, and ,
of the infant. ‘ Oh, there are few so blest as l
I ant!’ To have such a husband, father—
one whose genius will lead him to immortali
‘lt is in a fair way of leading thee to im
mortality, mv poor child,’said Nicolo, with
feeling. ‘ Thou art almost as pale as he.. I
little thought, when I let thee out of my fold,
that thou wouldst find no other shepherd.’
‘ Sav what you please tonic,’said Maddel
ena, ‘you are mv father, my dent father, and
I can bear it all: hot I beseech you, do not
say such things to jny poor Antonio ; they
make him miserable—they break his heart.’
‘ I wish you had married Pietro,’ reiterated
Nicolo, ‘ he has a slout heart.’
‘ Rather sa v, you wish I was in my grave ;
for I would sooner be there, than married to
him. No, no, you do not wish such miserv
for your poor child. Look, father ! Antonio
is up again, and coming—ah, when you see
his picture, I am sure you will say to him,
‘ You were right, Antoaio, to pursue painting
—it will lead you to immortality.’
Antonio slowly ascet.ded the hill, and Mad
delena met him. ‘ Let me look at it,’ said she,
and he turned tl? piettre towardsher. ‘How
beautiful!’ ex-la i tel; ‘jthey are just such
faces as we shall see in heaven.’
When they entered the house, the painter
modestly set down the picture with its face
to the wall.
‘ A warm day, Antonio,’ said Nicolo; ‘thou
shale have a cup of good old wine to refresh
‘ Rather a cup of milk,’ replied Antonio,
‘ldo not love your heating draughts; they
only add to t.he heat here,’ and lie laid his
hand upon his breast.
‘My dear husband,’ said Maddelena, sooth
ingly, ‘ thou hast painted too closely for these
few days past; but it is for you, father, An
tonio has been engaged. He said lie would
paint a picture for your room, and lie has
‘lt is but a little thing,’said Antonio, rising,
‘ but I will show it you.’
‘ Wait a moment,’ exclaimed Maddelena,
‘I hear our little Giovanni, and baby too is
awake ;’ and going out, she returned in a few
moments with the child in her arms, seated
herself near the window, witli Giovanni lean
ing upon her lap, and said, ‘ Come, Antonio,
Slowly, and with trepidation the painter
displayed the picture. It was a Madonna
with the infant in her arms, and John near
her—Maria and Iter children —bearing a ve
ry striking resemblance to the living group
Nicolo gazed fixedly upon it; his stern fea
tures relaxed ; he attempted to speak, and
burst into tears.
‘ My daughter!’ lie at length exclaimed,
‘my little Giovanni! just as they look now !’
and suddenly turning to Antonio, he seized
his hand. ‘Yes,’ continued he, ‘thou wert
right to pursue painting—it will lead you to
‘Did I not say so?’ said the delighted wife,
and her arms were in a moment around her
‘ Good, kind Antonio,’ said Nicolo, ‘ I will
not find fault with Maddelena that she'did
not choose Pietro—no, no, lie cannot paint
such a picture as this —he ;s a very good
tapster, and keeps good wines, and a good
Inn ; but thou hast chosen well, my daugh
It was a happy day for Antonio and his
wile. Nicolo who esteemed the value of the
picture, by the perfect resemblance the mo
ther and children bore to the beings he loved
best, and by his devotional impressions, re
peatedly exclaimed, ‘ Pietro never could have
painted such a picture as that.’
Mr. Willis in one of his letters to the New
York Mirror, thus delicately, and poetically,
alludes to the sale of the Sigourney estate :
‘ Talking of home, 1 wonder whether it is
true that adverse fortunes have thrown Mr.
Sigourney’s beautiful home into the market.
It is offered for sale, and the Newspapers say
as much. If so, it is piiy indeed. 1 was there
once, and to leave so delicious a spot must, 1
think, breed a headache. In general, unless’
tiie reverse is extreme, compassion is thrown
away on those who leave a large house to be
comfortable in a small one —but she is a poet
ess, and a most true and sweet one, and lias
a property in that house and in ali its trees
and flowers, which can neither be bought nor
sold. It is robbing to sell it for its apparent
value. You can understand, for ‘your spir
it is touched to these fine issues,’ how a tree
that the eye of genius has rested on while
the mind was at work among its bright fan
cies, becomes the cradle and home of these
fancies. The brain seems driven out of its
workshop if you cut it down. So with walks.
So with streams. So with the modifications
of natural beauty seen'tlience habitually—
sunrise, sunset, moonlight. In peculiar pla
ces, these daily glories take peculiar effects,
and in that guise genius becomes accustomed
to recognise and love them most. Who can
buy this at Auction? Who can weave this
golden mesh in another tree —give the san e
voices to another stream —the same sunset to
other hills ? This fair property, invisible as
it'is, is acquired slowly. Habit, long associ
ation, the connexion with many precious
thoughts, (the more precious the farther be
tween) make it precious. To sell such a |
spot lor its wood and brick, is to value Tom*
Moore for what tie will weigh—Daniel Web
ster for his superfices. Then there will lie a |
time (1 trust it is far off) when the property
will treble even in saleable- value. The bee i
and the poet must be killed before their honev j
is tasted. For how much more would Ab-S
botsfbrd sett now- than in the life-time of j
Scott ? For what could you buy Fernev—
Burn’s cottage— house at Sirat- 1
ford? I have not the honor of a personal j
acquaintance with Mrs. Sigourney, and can-:
not judge with what philosophy she may Bus
tain this reverse. But bear it weilor if', there
can be no doubt it falis heavily; and it is one
of those instances, I think, where public feel-1
ing should he called oh to interpose. But in
what shape? I have always admired the’
generosity and readiness with which actors!
play for the benefit'of a decayed brother of j
the Stock. Let American authors contribute :

Most young men consider it a great mis
fortune to be poor, or not have capital enough
to establish themselves at their outset iu life
in a good business. This is a mistaken no
tion. So lar from poverty being a misfor
tune to him, if we may judge from what we
every da-y behold, it is really a blessing.—
The chance is more than ten to one in favor
of the success of such a young man over one
who starts with plenty of money. Let any
one look back twenty years, and see who
commenced business at that time with abun
dance of means, and trace them down to the
present day. How many of these can now
boast of wealth and standing? On the con
trary how many have become poor, lost their
places in society, and are passed by their
once young companions, with a look which
plainly says, 1 know you not.
In this country the wheel of fortune is con
stantly turning, and he who is at zenith this
year, may be at nadir next, and excite no
surprise. It is seldom that the fourth, or
even the third generation, enjoys property
and station, which was won by the industry
ot the first. i'bis eoastont olmn-'u is the
natural result of causes in continual opera
tion. A man starts in life poor, but indus
trious and honest. He resolves to acquire
property, and at the same time sustain a
character that shall command respect. By
dint of long perseverance in business, he at
tains a high character for integrity and fair
dealing, and becomes wealthy. Ilis sons
succeed him, perhaps maintain the character
of their lather, and add to the wealth he left
them, because they were educated to busi
ness, and know how the property they enjoy
was acquired. But their sons grow up, and
from infancy find themselves in the lap of
luxury, and rocked in the cradle of ease,
their minds are never turned on business :
that, they consider beneath them. They
scorn labor, run the rounds of folly, marry
light-headed, fashionable ladies, who have as
sovereign a contempt for labor and the use
ful arts as themselves, dash away a lew
years in their carriages, lose their parents,
divide their property, attempt to carry on
business—are incapable of managing it—
fail, struggle to keep up appearances, and
their places in fashionable life—are obliged
to retire, are wretched and miserable at
home, and get through the world as they
can, carrying the appearance of shabby
gentlemen,-and being looked at askance by
their Conner companions. Their children
are more miserable even than themselves,
being brought up with the idea that labor is
degrading, while necessity compels them to
resort to some means of getting a living.
Pride and poverty are forever at war with
them, and they drag out a miserable and
precarious life, and finally die in poverty and
obscurity—ofien kmthsome drunkards.
From the Knickerbocker.
A LITERARY CHARACTER.
One morning, during the ‘ rabid stage’ of
the late ‘ pressure,’ while looking over some
new publications, in the fashionable magasin
of one skilled in bibliography, there enters a
middle aged specimen of humanity, who,
from crown to heel, bore the marks of a de
cayed gentleman. He looked as if he had
been ‘ spending the night in a stable, and
taking his breakfast at a pump.’
‘Sir,’ said he, bowing condescendingly to
the shopman, and sneaking with a studied
precision of diction, ‘you see before you an
unfortunate who, as the poet
remarks, is greatly
‘ In want of ready rhino,
Like many hereabout that you,
And some, perhaps, that 1 know.’
Permit me, therefore, my dear sir, to ask,
could you oblige me with the loan of a fip?’
x -‘No, sir, I ‘could’ not!’ replied the shop
‘ Ah !’ responded the solicitor, 1 I had no
idea that the times were so hard here. I
thought they were hard enough in Philadel- *
piiia, hut nothing like it—nothing like it.
J ieel for you,’ he added, laying his hand, with
a philanthropic air, upon his breast, ‘ I feel
lor you all!’
He mused fora moment, then extending
his arm, and flourishing the tattered remnant
of a pocket handkerchief, he continued—
‘ What is this great and glorious country
coming to, I should like to know, under its
present rulers, with their bank laws, sub
treasury, a.id so forth ? To ruin, sir—to ut
ter ruin ! Man, as the English grammar
very correctly observes, is a verb. Our gov
ernment, the body corporate, is the verb to
be ! — to do ! And we, the people, sir, of this
great and glorious country, are the miserable
passive verb, to suffer !’
* Shade of Cicero!’ thought we, ‘such elo
quence would shame the oratory of our Eagle
of the .North!’
‘ Sir,’ said the shopman, ‘ I have no time
to attend to you. You will oblige rne by
leaving the store/
‘ Oh certainly !’
And he retired accordingly.
The battle of eleven hundred Horses. —Two
of the (Spanish) regiments which had been
quartered in Fund were cavalry, mounted on
fine black long tailed Andalusian horses. It
was impracticable to bring off these horses,
about eleven hundred in number, and Roma
no'uas not a man who could order them to
be destroyed ; le was fond of horses himself,
and knew that every man was attached to
the beast which had carried him so far and
Their bridles were therefore taken off, and
they were turned loose upon the beach. A
| scene ensued such as probably never before
i was witnessed. They were sensible that they
| were no longer under any restraint of human
! pbwer. A general conflict ensued, in which,
| retaining the discipline they had learned, they
| charged each other in squadrons of ten or
I twelve together, then closely engaged, stri
j king with their fore feet, and biting and tear
; ing each other with the most ferocious rage,
and trampling over those which were beaten
down, till the shore in ihe course of a quarter
of an hour, was strewn with the dead and
disabled. Part of them had been set free on
a rising ground, at a distance; they .o
sooner heard the roar of battle, ti an they
came thundering down over the intermediate
hedges, and catching the contagious madness,
plunged into the fight with equal fury. Sub
lime as the scene was, it was too horrible to
he long contemplated, and Romano, in mer
cy, gave orders for destroying them; but it
was foun ! too dangerous to attempt this, and
alter the last boats quitted the beach, the few
horses that remained were seen still engaged
in the dreadful work of mutual destruction.—
‘ Thunder,’ observes Sir John ITerschd,’
‘can scarcely ever be beard more than 20 or
30 miles from the flash which produces it.
Lightning, on the other hand, may be seen,
or at least its reflection in the clouds, form
ing what is called sheet lightning, at the dis
tance of 150 or 200 miles.’
Bennett, of the N. Y. Herald, says that ‘the
Eng!i ll surpass us in many thins, but in wo
-1 men and horses ;ve beat them out and out,’
