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 slating, that six boltles 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 tho leg and ancle joint.

Office on Broad Street, nearly opposite the Post Office, April 12. IB3S. lOtf POETRY. From the Knickerbocker. OCTOBER. Solemn, yet beautiful to view, Month’of my heart! thou dawnest here, With sad and faded leaves to stre.v The summer’s melancholy bier. The moaning of thv w inds I hear, As the red sunset dies afar, And bars of purple clouds appear, Obscuring every western star. Thou solemn month ! I hear thy voice— It tells my soul of other days, When but to live was to rejoice— When earth was lovely to my gaze! Oh, visions bright—oh, blessed hours. Where are their living raptures now? I ask my spirit’s wearied powers— I ask my pale and fevered brow ! I look to nature, and behold My life’s dun emblems rustling round, In hues of crimson and of gold— The year’s dead honors on the ground ; And sighing with the winds I feel, While ttieir loiv pinions murmur by, How much their sweeping tones reveal Os afe and human destiny. When spring’s delightsome moments shone, They came in zephyrs from the west— They bore the wood lark’s melting tone, They stirred the blue lakes glassy breast; Through summer, fainring in the heat, They lingered in the forest shade ; But chang’d and strengthen'd now, they beat In storm, o’er mountain, glen and glade. How like those transports of the breast When life is fresh and joy is new— Soft as the halcyon’s downy nest, And transient all as they are true ! They s:ir the leaves in that bright wreathe, Which Hope about her forehead twines, Till Grief’s hot sighs around it breathe— Then Pleasure’s lip its smiie resigns. Alas, for time, and death, and care— What gloom about our way they fling ? Like clouds in autumn’s gusty air, The burial pageant of the spring. The dreams that each sue ‘essive year Seem bathed in hues of brighter pride, At last like withered leaves appear, And sleep in darkness side by side. Philadelphia. W. G. C. DEATH AMONG THE TREES. BY L. SI. SIGOURNEY. Death walketh in the forest. The tall pines Do woo the lightning flash—through their veins The fire cup darting, leaves their blacken’d trunks A tablet, where ambition’s sons inay read Their destiny. The oak that centuries spar’d, Grows grey at last, and like some time-scath’d man, Stretching out palsied arms, doth feebly cope With the destroyer, while its gnarled roots B’ tray their trust. The towering elm turns pale, And faintly strews the sere and yellow leaf, While from its dead arms falls the wedded vine. The sycalnore uplifts a beacon brow, Denuded of its honors—while the blast That sways the wither’d willow, rudely asks For its lost grace, and for its tissued leaf Os silvery hue. I know that blight, might check The sapling, ere kind nature’s hand could weave Its first spring coronal, and that the worm, Coiling itself amid our garden plants, Did make their unborn buds its sepulchre. And well I knew, how wild and wrecking winds May take the forest monarchs by the crown, And lay them with the lowliest vassal herb ; And thai the axe, with its sharp ministry, Might, in one hour, such revolution work, That all earth’s boasled power could never hope To reinstate. And I had seen the flame Go crackling up, amid yon verdant boughs, And with a tyrant’s inso'ence dissolve Their interlacing—and I felt that man, For sorded gain, would make the forest’s pomp, Its heaven rear’d arch and living tracery, A funeral pyre. But yet T did not deem That pale disease amid those shades would steal As to a sickly maidvn’s cheek, and waste ‘1 he plentitude of those majestic ranks, Which, in thetr peerage and nobility, Unrivall’d and unchronicled, had reign’d. And then I said, if in this world of knells, And open graves, there Ungereth one whose dream Is of aught permanent below the skies, Even let him come, and muse among the trees, For they shall be his teachers—he shall bow To their meek lessons bis forgetful ear, And by the whispering of their faded leaves, Soften, to his sad heart, the thought of death. ODE TO MURAT.— by bvron. And thou, too, o ‘ the snow-white plume ! Whose realm refused thee e’en a tomb ; Better hadst thou still been leading France o’er hosts of hirelings bleeding, Than sold thyself to death and shame For a meanly royal name ; Such as he of Naples wears, Who thy blood-bought title bears. Little didst thou deem when dashing On thy war horse through the ranks, Like a stream which burst its banks, While helmets ele't, and sabres clashing, Shone and shiver’d fast around thee— Os the fate at last which found thee ; Was that haughty plume laid low By a slave’s dishonest blow ? Once, as the moon sways o’er the tide, It roll’d in air, the warrior’s guide ; Through the smoke-created night Os the black and sulphurous fight, The soldier raised his seeking eye To catch that crest’s ascendancy — And, as it onward rolling rose, So moved his heart upon our toes. There, where death’s brief pang was quickest, And the. battle’s wreck lay thickest, Strew’d beneath the advancing banner Os the eagle’s burning crest — (There with thunder clouds to fan her,) Who could then her wing arrest— Victory beaming from her breast ? While the broken line enlarging Fell, or fled along the plain ; There be sure was Murat charging ! There he ne’er shall charge again! From the United States Gazette. RICHARD HURDIS, OR THE AVENGER OF BLOOD. A TALE OF ALABAMA. A fine, masculine novel, by some unknown hand, said to be a person of considerable eminence, whose name, if disclosed, would alone give extensive circulation to the work. But his name is withheld from personal con siderations. The story is one of crime and bloodshed, founded on facts not very remote, and disclosing appalling scenes of iniquity in our own country. The author lias displayed unusual ability for narrative and characteri zation. The story is a simple one, aud the narrator goes straight forward to the conclu sion, without suffering the reader’s interest to flag from beginning to end. In order to give our readers a just concep tion of the writer’s powers in description and character, we will select a chapter. To com prehend it fully, the reader must undersland that Ben Pickett has been hired by John Hurdis to shoot his brother, Richard Hurdis, the narrator. He has lain in ambush, and shot William Carrington, Richard’s travel ling companion, by mistake, and returned to his employer, without discovering the error, to claim his reward. The scene between them will bear comparison with Shakspeare’s between Unhurt and King John, in similar circumstances. ‘ The murderer jf William lay close in the thicket after he had done the deed. The murderer was Ben Pickett, and, as the reader may have divined already, his victim had perished through mistake. The fatal cause of this was in his employment of my horse — a circumstance iorced upon him by the ne cessities of his flight. Pickett knew the horse and looked no farther. It was a long shot, from a rising ground above, where the um brage was thick and at such a distance that features were not clearly distinguishable.— The dress of William unfortunately helped the delusion. It was almost entirely like mine. We had been so completely associ ated together for years, that our habits and tastes in many respecls had become assimi lated. The murderer, having satisfied him self—which be did at a glance—that ihe horse was mine, it was the'prompt conclu sion of bis mind, that I was the rider. Crime is seldom deliberate—the mere act I mean— the determination may be deliberately enough made, but the blow is most usually given in haste, as if the criminal dreaded that he might shrink from an act already resolved upon. Pickett did not trust himself to look a second timo before pulling trigger. Had he suflfereikthe rider to advance ten paces more, he would have withdrawn the sight. The courage of man is never certain but when he is doing what he believes to be right.— The wrong doer may be desperate and furi ous, but he has no composed bearing. Pick ett was of this sort. He shot almost instantly after seeing the horse. He was about to come forward when he saw the rider tumble ; but the sudden approach of the pursuers, whose forms had been concealed by the narrow and enclosed * blind’ through which they passed, compelled him to resume his position and re main quiet. He saw them take charge of the body, but had little idea that their aim, like his own, had been vulturous. He saw them busy about the prey which his blow bad struck down, but concluded that they were friends seeking to succor and to save. Under any circumstances, his hope of plunder was now cut off, and lie silently withdrew into the forest where his horse had been hidden, and hurriedly remounting commenced his re turn to Marengo. But an eye was upon him that never lost sight of him. The keen hunt er that Matthew Webber had set upon bis path had found his track, and pursued it with the unerring scent of the blood bound. More than once the pursuer could have shot down the fugitive with a weapon as little anticipated, and as unerring as that which he himself had employed ; but he had no purpose of this sort in view. He silently fol lowed on—keeping close watch upon every movement, yet never suffered himself to be seen. When the murderer paused by the wav side, he halted also ; when he sped to wards, he too relaxed his reins; and he drew them up finally only when he beheld the for mer, with an audacity which he never show ed while I dwelt in Marengo, present him self at ihe entrance of my father’s plantation and requested to see my brother. The pur suer paused also at this moment, and enter ing a little but dense wood, on one side of the road, quietly dismounted from his horse, which he fastened in the deepest thicket, and, under cover of the under brush, crept for ward, as nearly as he could, to the place where Pickett waited, without incurring any risk of detection. It was not long before John Hurdis came to the gate, and his coward soul made its ap pearance in his face the moment that he saw his confederate. His lips grew livid and quivered—his cheeks were whiter than his shirt, and his voice so feeble, when he at tempted to speak, that lie could only arlicu late at all by uttering himself with vehemency and haste. ‘ Ah, Pickett, that you?—well! what?’ The murderer bad not alighted from his horse, and he now simply bent forward to the other as he half whispered, ‘ It’s all fixed, Squire—the nail’s clinched. You can take the road now when you please, and find nothing to trip you.’ 4 Ha ! but you do not mean it, Ben ? It is not as you say? You have not done it? Are you sure ? Did you see ?’ c It’s done, I tell you, as sure as a gun.’ ‘ He’s dead, then ?’ said John Hurdis in a husky whisper. ‘ Richard Hurdis is dead, you say?’ and he tottered forward to the rider with a countenance in which fear and eagerness were so mlngied as to piodui:e an unquiet shrinking even in the bosom of his confederate. ‘l’ve said it, Squire, and I’ll say it again to please you. I had dead aim on his but ton—just here, (he laid his hand on his breast,) and I saw him tumble and come down all in a heap, like a bag of feathers. There’s no doctor can do him good now, I tell you. He’s laid up so that they won’t take him down again—nobody. You can go to sleep now when you please.’ The greatest felon of the two shrank back as he heard these words, and even covered his face with his hands. He seemed scarce able to stand and leaned against the post of the gate for his support. A sudden shiver ing came over him, and when that passed off, he laughed brokenly as if with a slight convulsion, and the corners of his mouth twiched until the tears started in his eyes. To what particular feeling, whether of re morse or satisfaction, he owed these emo tions, it would be difficult for me to say, as it was certainly impossible for his comrade to conceive. Pickett looked on with wonder ing, and was half inclined to doubt whether his proprietor was not out of his wits. But a few moments re-assured him as John Hur dis again came forward. His tones were most composed, and though still unsubdued, when he addressed him, and, perhaps, some thing more of human apprehension dwelt upon his countenance. ‘ You have told me, Ben Pickett, but I am not certain. Richard Hurdis was a strong man—he wouldn’t die easily. He xvouid fight—he would strike to the last. How could you stand against him? Why, Ben, he would crush you with a blow of his fist. He was monstrous strong !’ ‘ Why, Squire, what are you talking about? Dick Hurdis was strong, I know, and stout hearted. He would hold on til! his teeth met, for there was no scare in him. But that’s nothing to the matter now, for you see there was no fighting at all. The rifle did the business—long shot and steady aim—so, you see, all his strength went for nothing.’ ‘ But how could he let you trap him, Ben Pickett ? Richard was suspicious and always on the watch. He wouldn’t fall easily into trap. There must be some mistake, Ben— some mistake. You’re only joking with me, Ben—you have not found him? he was too much ahead of you, and got off—well—it’s just as well you let him go —I don’t care, in deed, I am almost glad you didn’t reach him. He’s in the ‘ Nation,’ I suppose, by this time.’ ‘ But I did reach him, ’Squire, replied the other, not knowing how to account for the purposeless tenor of John Hurdis’ speech, and wondering much at the unlooked for re lenting of purpose which it implied. There was something in this last sentence which annoyed Pickett as much as it surprized him. It seemed to imply that his employer might not be altogether satisfied with him when he became persuaded of the truth of what he said. He hastened therefore to reiterate his story. ‘ He’ll never get nearer to the ‘ Nation’ than he is now. I tel! you, ’Squire, I come upon him on a by-road leading out from Tus caloosa, that run along among a range of hills where I kept. There was a double hill close by, and the road run through it—it was a dark road. I tracked him and Bill Car rington twice over the ground. They had business farther down with a man named Webber, and they stopt all night with a Col. Grafton. I got. from one of his negroes all about it. Well, I watched when he was to ! come bark. When I heard them making ! tracks, I put myself in the bush, clear ahead, j in a place where they could’nt come upon !me till I was clean out of reach. Soon he ’ came runnings like mad, then I give it him, and down he came, I tell you, like a miller's i bag struck all in a heap.’ i ‘But that didn’t kill him? He was only hurt! You’re not sure, Ben, that he’s dead? You did nt look at him closely?’ ‘ No, dickens, they were too hard upon me for that- But I saw where I jnust hit him, and I saw him tumble.’ ‘ YVho were upon you?’ demanded Hurdis. ‘ W hv, Bill Carrington, and the man he went to see, I suppose. I didn’t stop to look, for, just as I sprawled him out, they came from the road behind him, and tsaw no more. l r ou didn t tell me that Bill Carrington was going with him.’ ‘ No, I wasn’t certain. I didn’t know. But didn t Carrington come after you, when you shot Richard ?’ 4 I reckon he was too much frightened— he jumped down beside the body, and that was all I stopped to see. 1 made ofl, and fetched a compass through the woods that brought me out with dry feet into another road. Then I kept on without stopping, and that’s all I can tell you.’ 4 1 was strange Bill Carrington didn’t take after you; he’s not a man to be frightened easily?’ 4 He di h t though.’ 4 But you’re not sure, Ben, after all. Per haps you've only hurt him? You have not killed him, I think! It’s a hard thing to shoot certain at a great distance; you were far off, you sav?’ 4 A hundred yards or so, and that’s nothing, being down hill, too.’ 4 Richard was a tough fellow’. 5 ‘Tough or not, I tell you, ’Squire, lie’ll never trouble you again. It’s all over with him. They’ve got him under ground before this time. I know by the sort of fall he gave that he had’nt any life left; he didn’t know what hurt him.’ John Hurdis seemed convinced at last. 4 And yet to think, Ben, that a man so strong as Richard should die so sudden. It was only four days ago that he had his hand on my throat; he had me down upon the ground ; he shook me like a feather; and he spoke with a voice that w r ei>t through me. I was like an infant in his hands; I felt that he could have torn me in tw ? o. And now, you say, he cannot lift an arm to help himself.’ 4 No, not to wave a buzzard from his car rion !’ was the reply. The arm of John Hurdis fell on the neck of Pickett’s horse at these words, and his eyes with a vacant stare w r ere fixed upon the rider. After a brief pause, he thus proceeded in a muttered soliloquy, rather than an address to his hearer: ‘lf Richard would have gone off quietly, and let me alone; if—but what’s the use to talk about that now ? He paused, but again began in similar tones and a like spirit. ‘He was too rash—too tyrannical. Flesh and blood could not bear with him, Ben. He would have mastered all around him if he could—trampled upon all—suffered no life to any—spared no feelings. He w r as cruel— cruel Jo you, and to me, and to alt; and then to drag me from mv horse and take me —his oxvn brother—by the throat! But it’s all over now. He has paid for it, Ben; I wish he hadn’t done it, though—for then—but no matter —this talk’s all very useless now.’ Here he recovered himself, and in more direct and calmer language, thus continued, while giving his agent a part of the money which he had promised him. 4 Go now, Pickett, to your own home. Let us not be seen together much. Take this money , ‘iisn't ait I mean lo give you. Til bring you more.’ The willing fellow pocketed the price of blood, and made his acknowledgments.— Thanks too, were given by the murderer, as if the balance of credit lav with him who paid in money for the life of his fellow-crea ture. 4 1 will come to you to-night,’ continued Hurdis: I would hear all of this business. I would know more. Stay! What is that? Someone comes ! Hear you nothing, Ben ?’ Guilt had made my wretched brother doubly a coward. The big sweat came out and stood upon his forehead, and his eyes wore the irresolute expression of one about to fly. The composure with which his com panion looked around, half re-assured him. 4 No—there’s nobody,’ said the other, 4 a •squirrel jumped in the wood,'perhaps.’ 4 Well, I’ll come to-night, Ben—l’ll meet you at the Willows.’ 4 Won’; you come to the house, Squire?’ 4 No !’ was the abrupt reply. The speaker recollected his late interview with the stern wife of his colleague, and had no desire to encounter her again. No, Ben, I’ll be at the Whllows.’ 4 What time, ’Squire?’ 4 1 can’t say, now—but you’ll hear my sig nal. Three hoots and a long bark.’ 4 Very good ; I’ll be sure.’ John Hurdis remained at the gate a long time after Pickett rode away. He watched his retreating form while it continued in sight, then seated himself on the ground where he had been standing; and uncon sciously, with a little stick, began to draw characters in the sand. To the labors of his fingers his mind seemed to he utterly heed less, until aroused to a sense of what he was doing and where he sat, by the approach of some of the field negroes returning Irorn the labors of the day. He started to his feet as he heard their voices, but how did his guilty heart tremble, when his eye took in the letters that he had unwittingly traced upon the sand. The word 4 murderer’ was distinctly written in large characters before his eyes. With a desperate but trembling baste, as if he dread ed lest other eyes should behold it too, he dashed his feet over the letters, nor stayed his efforts even when they were completely obli terated. Fool that he was; of what avail was all his toil? He might erase the guilty letters from the sand, but they were written upon his soul in characters that no hand could reach, and no labors obliterate. The fiend .was there in full possession, and his tor tures were only now begun.’ There are other scenes in the novel not inferior to this.

Baron Hume is dead, aged 82. Hisgreat work on the criminal jurisprudence of Scotland leaves him an imperishable fame. He was j nephew of the great Hume! Love and Marriage. —A case was recently tried in Rutland, Vermont, in which a Miss Munson recovered $1425 of a Mr. Hastings, for a breach of marriage contract. The cu riosity of the thing is, that the Vermont judge charged the jury ‘ that no explicit promise was necessary to bind the parties to a mar riage contract, but that long continued atten tions, or intimacy with a female, was as good evidence of intended matrimony as a special contract. 5 The principle of the case un doubtedly is, that it'Hastings did not promise, he ought to have done it! and so the law holds him responsible for the non-performance of his duty. A most excellent decision : a most righteous judge: compared with whom Daniel would appear but a common squire. We have no idea of a young fe'low dangling about a woman for a year or two without being able to screw bis courage up to the sticking point, and then going off leaving his sweet heart half courted ; we hate this ever lasting nibble, and never a bite: this beating of the bush and never starting the game: this standing to the rack without touching the corn : it is the crying sin of the age. There is not one girl in twenty can tell whether she is courted or not. No wonder that when Betty Simper’s cousin asked her if Billy Doubtful was court ing her, answered, ‘1 don’t know ’xaclly; he’s sorter courtin’ and sorter not courtin. 5 We have no doubt that Hastings is one of those ‘ sorter not’ fellows, and most heartily do we rejoice that the judge brought him up standing with a $1425 verdict. The judge says ‘ that long continued attentions, 5 or ‘ in timacy,’ is just as good as a regular promise. Now we do not know what would pass for ‘ intimacy, 5 according to the laws of Ver mont; but supposing ‘attentions’ to consist in visiting a girl twice a week! and estimate the time wasted bv Miss Munson, at each visit, to be worth a dollar, which is dog cheap, Mr. Hasting has been making a fool of him self fourteen years and some odd weeks. — This decision makes anew era in the law of love, and we doubt not will tend to the pro motion of matrimony and sound morality.— Utica Democrat.
