The Inst, who J took chocolate died in eight months; ho who took coffee, lived two years ; nnd the tea drinker survived three years. The man who took chocolate died in a stato of complete de composition, and so much eaten by worms that, during his hie, in limbs separated onu by one from his body. The man who drank coffoo was so disfigured after his death, that one would have said that the fire of heaven had burnt his entrails, ond calcined him from head to foot.

FRIDAY MO UN ING, DECEMBER 6. COUNTERFEITERS TAKEN. We are happy to learn from the north that a clean sweep has been made of the counterfeiters at Dunham, L. C. The agent of the associated Boston Hanks, who has been some months engaged in this ope ration, passed through this place on Tues day. Il seems that he managed to ingra. date himself among them in a way to be come acquainted with nil their operations and most of the individuals concerned in tho counterfeiting business. This was communicated to the authorities at Mon treal. and at a concerted moment, n largo body of the police lit. upon loafers and secured their whole bundle dies, plates presses and paper, together with severnl bushels of counterfeit half dollars, and large amount of bills ready for circulation Thirty-odd individuals were arrested and committed to jail, including somo of the most wealthy and respectable citizens of the place two merchants, and a number of notorious diameters who had fled from the U. States. Tho agent alluded to, de serves much prniso for his energy and pcrscvcranco in this matter, for he has accomplished it ot the hazard of his life He barely escaped, ns the saying is, by the skin of his teeth. He was pursued on his way to the 6tates by a gang of tho 'sym pathising" inhabitants of Dunham, and being npprised of his danger, had bnrolytitne to etenpo to the woods when tho wretch es overtook tho vehicle, and with drawn knives and pistols were about to do sum mnry vengeance on tho innocent driver but discovcung their mistake, they tacked about, and with such information ns Ihe knight of tho whip chose lo give them pursued their victim in another direction to the no small satisfaction of the gen llcman who related the circumstances to us Michigan. Very few political events have recently occurred in this country which hove afforded mora sincere and sol id gratification to tho friends of the Union and Constitution, than the recent election in the Stato of Michigan. Aware ofthe mischievous nature of tho Van Huron and Uentonian policy, und its necessary tendon cy to injure, if not destroy the best inter csts of tho new states, tho people of Michigan have thrown off tho influence and ascendancy of tho administration par ly, and havo elected a Whig Governor of highly respectable talents and character and sound pnlittcical principles, and a ma jonty of both branches of the legislature is composod of men of similar character and politics. In evcrv noint of view this is an ovont of great interest. It will in sure tho oppoinlmont ofa Whiff Senator to CuDgrcii, in the place of t thorough going Loco'Foco a man who In that bo by unforiny 8Uppor,ed Vn Burenism and ' , Dcntonism in their most ultra character. It also shows that the people of (hat Stato understand, and will protect and defend their own intoreste, against tho arts and seductioni of a corrupt administration, who under tho mask of friendship for the peo pie, is pursuing schemes and endeavoring; to adopt measures, which are manifestly dangerons to the rights, interests, and lib crtics of the nation. New York. Tho administration papers are busily endonvoring to create tho im prcssinn that the whig? have lost ground in thie state since the last election. Thn very reverse of this is the fact. The Al bany Daily Advertiser, of Monday, contains the official canvass, by which it appears that the whig majority is but a fraction less than four thousand. Last year it wao about 10.000. It appears however that there is a falliog off, of about 13.000 in tho aggregate vote, and that the whig majori ties are uniformly maintained in those die tricts that havo given a full vote, and re duced in those that have fallen off in tho aggregate. "It will bo obierved (says ilic Advertiser,) that llie lotnl vote lias fallen liort of that of Inn year by 12.G7G, and it li.u decreased in lix of the ight Senate Disliicn. In the 3rd and 6ili, where unquestionably I he ckciion was mon closely con tested, the vole lint year slightly exceeds that of the List.

No one preienda to doubt, however, that our ac- ual majority here i now ns great us ever. Of courie, with a full vote this year, the popular ma- jurily would huic been but little short of die last. There ore one or two facts which go, indeed to ihow ihal the Whigs have gained strength since the election nf '33.
