[Laughter ] And here 1 am to make my confession, standing, as I do, self convicted of the inconsistency of having at. middle age, so far gone to the other extreme, as to have recommeaded not merely an enlargement of that channel to twice its oiigiualca parity, hut also the construction of three great lines of rsilw ays, to accommodate the excess ol travel and transportation between the seaboard and the broad west [renewed laughter ] The enlargement goi s on triumphing over alt obsticles, one of the railroads is already " -? -I i.

Thete remark* may not be without in tcreit to our friends of the Kaat, us indicating the confident belief entertained here concerning the profitableness and urn ftilnoia ol their enterprise.? But, continued the Governor, this is no time for any mcie local reminiscences. It ia an occasion on which piivate feeling and local jealousies a-n.l iuteresta, as well a* State' pride, might well be excluded Allmch feeling should he lost in the sentiment that another hand ia added to the union of these free States. The citizens al Boston have a higher suhj-ct of reflection and consolation even than those so justly insisted upon by my learned friend (VIr. Austin) Massachusetts, after heing the first to give the impulse to the hall of independence, comes forward now in nu hour of trial, tomaiotuiu with her indomitable energy, the only policy that can bind together that confederacy, which, but for tips patriotism of a Hancock and an Adams, would never have had existtsaco. 1 am proud as any citi/.cn. for whatever .NewYork hat to be proud of. But when I recollect that although we have heretofore done much, yet that we are now faltering in a progress that has been one of .-onslant triumph? I feel that Old Massachusetts will guin the highest honor by that fum faith and steady perseverance so necessary now to prevent the country from falling from the course ol* high enterprise w hich it has hitherto pursued. But the occasion dees not call forergument in favor of internal imprevemonts so much as so cial congratulation up >n the event we celebrate. I w ill, with the permission of the company, read a letter, which perhaps is the earliest authentic record to bo iound of an arrangement, with a view to an improvement oi the internal communication between N. York and Massachusetts. It bears date, "fort James, (now the city ol N. York) 17th December, 1672,"just 169 years before the arrival oi our guests from tho Bay Btate by a railway Journey of eleven houts. Tho letter was written by Cel. Francis Lovelace, than Governor of this colony, to the Governor of Msssschusetts. [It snnounced Uisriacicd Mejesty'a commands that the colon;, a should enter into a clo.e correspondence with each other; and that to accomplish that purpose, Governor Lovelace had established a poat to proceed on horseback once every month to Boston, allowing two week* for the journey and sn wpial time for returning ] tVe may not, said the Governor, speak disrespectfully of all this. The letter, simple as it is.Is full or wisdom, rendered simple only by tho experience and acquirem-ntsof 1 GO years. In the royal injunction to the eoloniea to enter into an intimate corr- spon Jence, ia found the germ of that policy?that mighty policy? which has m do those provinces free ami Independent 9 ht s?the tirst movement uf|th<'nations towards constitutional liberty! Aye, it might mortify statesmen to remember that this first lessen upon internal improvements enmeatn ns from the most di.-solute ix-riod in tin history of tout moot dissolute monarch, Thai Ira the Second. if to Uovernor Lovelace la long* the honor of conveyinir his Majaaty's command* to tne colony of Ma*???hum tts B?f, to c 1 ivate friendly relation* with New York, it * rimtii me that ourgucit* on the present occasion muy tie considered a* bringing to ti? the r?-*[>otise of the oi l B*\ Siate; and if it has tmon long delayed, I think no must all agree that it in satisfactory.

Mr. t^vincr (PresiJent of the We?trrn Railroad Corporation,) responded to this toant,which wit warmly received, to show how little,he Slid' the gentlemen referred to had had to do in the construction of this public woik. It hat been an arduous woik ; but it hail been brought to successful completion berausa sustained by the citizens of Boston and by the power and wealth of Massachusetts herself. And as so much hat been sai l (continued Mr. Q ) in pi aisc of tho Yankee*of New England, 1 know Is all ho pardoned by those present, if I avert for one moment to what hat been done by Albany. This city has borne au important part in Carrying forward this work in which we so much glory. From thu bevim irg.

Hut there was a rich struggle for superiority between the iiicfiihrrs of the " learned professions." The young prnpoundor and expounder of Itlackitone exerted all h:s eloquence to draw frniu the accomplished physician his skill and knowledge, and hurl theui at the plaiutifi*, (as Jupiter of old hurled thethunderb >!t at /Gsculapius,) for the ssicuee he displayed in the important work that he had taken in hand. It was an action brought by Dr. Peter F. Clark, whose stately mansion is in itlcvcker street, near the Bowery, against Amhr. e Rikeinan, a respectable butcher, residing at No 5 Fifth struct, to recover .>'100 for medical attendance upon Mrs. Riktmati wife of the defendant- After the ca?c fort piaiutill'had been stated by Mr I. B ShcpI his opposing counsel, truly with "trumpet t-ni ,ui and words of lire," proceeded to the defence. The defendants in this suit are a young c :|>; , re>pi-cte.l, beloved, and w irthy. Some t r Ave years ago they exchanged the position of i > i-r and beloved for that sacred tie, 1 Where bliss presides?where joys beguile? Whsre all the charms of virtuu smile? Where heart to heart pure throbhings beat, l'rcpaied life's rsys or stoim< to meet. ti ? " nia rrii.fl ? hu nninf-s* crowned their *?'J ? ?rr days unJ contentment mulled at their peaceful board. Health presided over their domicil, and c i and --orrovv were unknown to their abode. In nr?e of time two beauteous children gladthe hearts of their purents, rendering their .1 and home still more endearing, and every uing went on smoothly and happily as a marriage bell, lint alas ! it tvas destined that there shonld be a change. Sickness was to visit that late happy ' home, and professional mat practice, withaubsc1 quent tyranny and persecution, were to bear down upon them with their pestiferous blight. The learned counsel then proceeded to state his case. In the month of September, ltilO, Mrs. Hikcinan . was visited, particularly after rising in the morning, with severe head aehe and sickness at the . 'stomach, accompanied by a furred tongue aud nausea in the mouth, as if "she had been eating soap''? there was also a general swelling of the system, and a derangement of tho vital faculties, JJrco.-n' ing alarmed, and somowhal suspecting the eause of t her trouble, she sent to the plaintiff*, requesting he ' should call and bleed he*, i'he Doctor went, bot declined bleeding, saying she hid only a cold, which had settled down in her abdomen, and she must on no account be bled. He then ordered t strong sweats of hotcatsip flannels to be constantly applied, and caused her stomach to be rubbed for four or five weeks with a home liniment, composed of sugar of lead, vinegar, spirit* of turpentin?, and eggs. She was reduced very low by this means, auu nad to keep her bed part of the time, only getting up to the lire to be rubbed with thu liniment. Still her system kept f glowing larger, and after she bad been treated in i this way for nearly two months the Doctor repeat' ed his declaration that she had a severe cold, and that it had settled down in a " lump." lie continued to medicine, and caused her to be rubbed with the liniment, saying that the " tuiuonr" in her | stomach must be dispersid About tho middle of J- November she experienced that "life within her" which left no douot in her mind as to the cause of I her disorder, and told the Poctoi that she was in i the family way ; but he replied that such was not f the case?it was merely a movement of water?and 1 continued his treatment as before. A consulting physician was railed in, to whnru Dr Clark stated ' that Mrs. Ilikeman bad billious remittent fever. [ They continued to give her medicine and treat her in this Wty, and then wondered that the sick s stomach should continue. She frequently told the 1 Doctor that she was in the family way, but he anr swered that she was not, for if she bad been so the 1 medicine he had given her would have produced " abortion. Finally, the " gentle movements" could no longer be m stakon for the movements of water, j and, after weeks of unnecessary sullcring, the doctor withdrew from the fir Id, leaving nature and a i good constitution free to repair the ravages, pro. duced by " a want of skill," on the person of Mrs. K. In Kcbrniry licr child was Lorn, and bad cvi ' I dcntly roue its lull time, but bore marks ol the nic[ I dicincs and the treatment which the mother had I received, and whirh had nearly been fatai to them both The^hild, alt kvugh at present nearly eleven , months aid, is hut little heavier than children tmia a'ly arc at three or four, and will probably be i weakly for life, while Mrs II.'s other two children are remarkably healthy and active.

Answi r?Being a married feruule, I should have been on my guard how 1 treated her; sickness ut the storfiacli and headache arc common symptoms of pregnancy; had I been culled, 1 should have investigated the case further, and if 1 found it resulted in pregnancy, should have been very particular iu my treatment; should look upon any other treatment as being highly euljable; had there been any doubt, I should have resorted to the tethescope, aud if 1 ascertained that a woman was pregnant, I should have niodcrateJ uiy treatment; 1 should certainly not have treated her the same as if she was not pregnant; it would not be good practice to attend a pregnant woman for two or three months, and doctor her for "water;" thinks the plaintiff's saying the child was a lump, and must be doctored and scattered away, to have been very bad practice. [Wcnecd unt say that these sentences are answers to questions propounded by tho counsel; both sides, in general, being down upon the witness at the same time.] 1 should have ' ascertained what the lump was, whether it was dropsy, or abscess, or pregnancy. (Question?Was there danger of using liniment, such as this, in caNeof pregnancy ! Answer?If it was an activejliniment, I should be afraid of its getting to the bowels and creating abortion. Spirits of Turpentine sometimes acts upon tho womb. I shoul 1 not have resorted to stimulating medicines, unless the fever was excessively severe.

Question?Have you heard the evidence in this case, and if so, state to the Jury what you think hi relation to itt Answer? My opinion agree* generally >ith that of Dr. Taylor. 1 think, on visiting Mr*. Kikenian, the. first conrte of Dr. Clark should have been to ascertain the nature of her disease, and to hare treated her differently Thinks >hc ymptomsthst have been described, might have been produced by medicine. Question?You attended Mrs. R. in February, when the was confined?what was her situation I Answir?1 found her to he an exceedingly wellformed woman, with ayood constitution. Q'u stion?Have you h id much practice in cases of this sort! Answer?I have had a good deal of practice in obstetric enset. Had charge of the lying in department of the almshouse, and was with the pa tienls l>< fore and nf er tliey wo c eMiifined. 1 think the treatment of Dr. C lark was Imprudent. For the few first months of pregnancy, it is somewhat difficult of discovery, hu' when the child quickens >t ia easily ascettaiovd if a phytirian is qualified, aud t ike* pains, he can have no difficulty in finding out, and if he gave medicine that would he likely to pri duce abort! n, it coald not he good practice.
