fl-Tho Lake is now clear of ice, and tlio lino boats, it is understood will com 4 jnonco their regular trips on Monday next. A young man, named MmoN Y. Lan don, employed in carrying tlio mail from this placo to South Hero, died in his boat, while crossing from Porter's to the Island on Friday last. He left Porter's about ten in the morning, apparently in good health tlio wind blowing rather fresh from the south. Some time in the afternoon, the boat was picked up near the Island shore, the mast, sails, and rudder gone, together with tho mail-bag, bundles of papers, &c. Landon was found sitting midships, one arm thrown around tho row-lock, and his head resting upon it. There were no marks of violence upon him, whatever, and the supposition is that he died in a fit, brought on by fright, or some other cause. Mr. L. was a very amiable young man, and much respected within tho circle of his acquaintance. He was form erly a clerk for Mr Braman, and subse quently for Messrs Lathrop and Potwin, in this place. M'KENZIE. Wc arc requested to give notice that a petition for the release of M'Kcnzie from imprisonment, is left at the Post Office, for Bienatures.

Let's see if he xlarc resist the united voice of the Ameri can people. Another Candidate for tiie Pres idency. We learn by the Albany Daily Advertiser of Saturday, that tho National Anti-Slavery Convention in that city have nominated James G. Birney as a candidate for the Presidency. An inde pendent ticket was resolved upon after two day's debate, by a vote of 48 to 37. The vice candidate is not mentioned. Signs or the Times. The New York Commercial of Friday, says : Wc were yesterday informed of a sale of real estate recently made in the vicinity of New York, upon terms so extraordinary as to be worthy of special note. The terms of the bargain, moreover, afford one of the strongest possible illustrations of tho want of confidence in the present National Ex- ccutivc, and the utter hopelessness and despondency into which people will sink, 'shouldMr. Van Buren bo re-elected. The terms of the sale referred to wore these : The purchaser is to pay for tho property, SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS, in theeventoi GENERAL HARRISON'S i election, and only thirty thousand should Mr. Van Buren to' re-elected." The Vice Prestdenci. We have hitherto been nnd now are impressed wilh a belief that Hon. Itichard M. Johnson will be settled nx the candi date for vice President on the ticket with Mr Van Buren at the Baltimore Convention. His leading friends in Congress some weeks since published a card stating that be had not declined a reelection. He has been nominated by the State Conventions of his parly in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana. Illinois. Michigan and Missouri. It would seem a slight, (however intended) to drop thim for the second heat, while continuing to run nr. ran miren, and we do not think it will be done. Certainly there are no objections to him now which did not exist with equal lorce when he was first nominated, and we believe he has even gained strength since then. On the other hand, there seems to be a disposi tion in various quarters to prefer some other man. "Tennessee, Virginia and Massachusetts have for mally presented Hon. James K. Polk, prcent Governor of Tcnncscc ; Georgia has nominated Mr. Forsyth; Alabama proposes Hon. William R. King. Virginia it is understood, will not send Delegates to the National Convention, nor will .he support Col. Johnson if he is nominated. We deem this not the result of antipathy but of calcu lation. Gov. John Tvler. the Whig candidate, is strong in the South but e-pecially in Virginia, while Col. Johnson is there rcsnrdeJ with disfa vor. Wc doubt whether the friends of Mr. Van Uuren in cither Virginia, South Carolina or Geor gia will vote for him. The last two Slates voted for Gov. Tyler as Vice President last time : they are not counted for him now, but neither can they le for Johnson. Still, it is obvious that the latter will le nomina'ed at the Baltimore Convention. There is a Whig report from Arkansas that iiioi uhmc is ruuiiai-lll-uiu uoi. j. mat it will vole jur ".msuii unu i yier in case ho is not nomina ted. We give it for what it is worth, only adding that there appears to Lean unwonted miisienn.r oftheWhizsin Arkansas, preparatory to the great quintal. n iw rower. Ptnntylvania Resumption. The apnrehen led tragedy ha turned out a broad farce, After looking daggers, blood and fury at the Banks for a couple or month-, und passing several bills threatening Ihem with annihilation if they did not upeedily resume specie payments (but Inking good care that the two Houses never passed the ame bills,) the Senate and House have briefly ngreed on a bill requiring the banks of that State ( monster' and all) to lend the State Three Mil lions of Dollars of their 'broken promises,' irre deemable shin-plasters,' &c. fortwenty-fivo years at five per cent, interest the money to be ex pended in paying olfthe accruing interest of the Stale Debt, and prosecutinc her svstpm nf Inior. nal Improvements : In consideration whereof, the '"""" "Ul " rciiuireu to resume until the 15th of January next.

Wo think we should be justified by tho locls of Ihe cose lo go on and speak as confidently and even vauntingly concern ing tnis medicine as some do concerning less valuable medicines. But wo arc aware that Mr Morisnn, wishes and expects it to stand or fall by its own intrinsic worth and wc dn not wish to be connected with an article which will not do so. We feel confident that this medicino will continue to be used mure ond more, that it will be appreciated and valued the more it is used. Our confidence in it is founded upon the knowledge wc have of its effects upon those who have used it, in this town, and through, out the elate! We do not expect those who do not use it or see it used, to have the same confidence ; Ihe time was when we would not uso the medicine j wc did not thm believe in continued purgation eten by VEGETABLE Medicines j we now know that patients reduced to the last extremity of weakness and debility, even, can take this medicine daily. and still grow strongrr.

( Note A. The cause of the very rapid increase of sales in some counties the last and present winter is ascribed by the sub agents; to this medicine (Morison's Pills and Powders,) being brought into Juxla. position with the regular Physicians at a time when there was some Epidemic pro vailing such as scarlet fever or Ihe like, so that friends and foes In the medicine could tee which was best and moat successful, the Doctor or the Pills.

The Ageut informs us that the difference in the appearance of Patients who used the Morison's Pills, was too striking to afford room to doubt which of the two was the best Physicians. P. & B.
