I have been lately (he physician to Mr. Maynard, and was called to see him during his illness, some time in the month of August or September last, and I must say I was much surprised and astonished to see Mrs. Maynard officiating as nurse, and attending to his wants while he was sick. Her case was one tost I was conversant with but never prescribed for ; it was Procidentia, and fur the moat part of seven or right years she hid been obliged to be conveyed about the house ana nursed in a cradle constructed tor the purpose. Until she commenced the nae of Bristol's Harsapar ilia her disease resisted the best medical treatment. I waa frequently called to ronsult with Dr Gage in her case, but the disease had assuineu such a form that my opiniou was, that medicine would have no ettect in producing ac ire. I am perfectly convinced that her recovery it entirely attributable to the useol Bristol's Sarsaparilla. JOHN M. HARRINGTON, M. D. Aldbk, January 17,1(43. I hare been one of the attending phyareiana of Mn. Maynard for eight year* put. Her disease was Prnlapt?i Utiri of an aggravated character, ani resisted all the agents laid down in oar most eminent authois. In aiitlition to remedial agents recommended, I prescribe! various instruments to no effect. I am clearly of the opinio i that her care may be attributed to the nte of Bristol's Sarsiparilia. GROVE C. GAGE, M. D.'.n. January 17,1M2. We have been acuaai ited with the circumstances of Mrs Mavnard'a siekoeeafnr eignt years past, have always under stood tier case as being t eyond the reach of medicine, and have been surprised withit the past year to see her ahont, and we are assured that Iter ret overy is attributable entirely to the use of Bristolh Baraapanll a We are further acquainted with the fact, that for five yerrsofthe time of Iter sicaneas, she was obliged to be convrve t from one place to another in the armsof her husband, anrlir fart, when she was moved at all.

A history of the above cases may be seen by calling as above f Krom the Baffalo Commercial Advertiser, Nov. f, [Ml 1 Art EiTnsonomanv Cask.?The article lietow is from the pen of one of our most intelligent medical men, whoee statemenu are entitled to the fallest confidence. The case he details is really a remarkable one. and might well have been supposed beyond the power of medicine. Sslrmeut of the Physician who visited the Patient in person and who wis at the time one of the Editors of the Commer cial Advertiser. frit is rars indeed that fallen humanity is made to experience from the hand of Providence so much severe and protracted suffering, and such calamitous and shocking mutilation, as has Ulan to the lot of James Wyekoff, a lad IS yean of age, now ITviPg in the town of Clarence in this county. James is the son of a farmer, the offspring of healthy and repuukleparenu, who hava a nuaaerona family of rolmat children. Without any aaaignahlr canae, he waa suddenly deprived of ihe sense of hearing some ten years since, which was soon followed by what waa probably an attack of the dry gangrene. This rapidly destroyed first the inlate, the bones of the roof of the mouth, and then a ron-deisMc portion of the npjier jaw, upper lip, and Ihe whole of the nose, both hones and cartilage, as well as lafguwi nts,. It would be difficult to isi.igins in what way a mori unsightly deformity could be imiireaaed upon the 'haman face dinue.' Tlos fnghtlal disease ceased iu ravages on the Lace afier several montl?, to renew them again in other parts of the system w ith greater and mote destructive severity. irSome two years ago, a b'ick spov ?at tlie intelligent mo ther of this most u it fortunate child told the writer ef this?waa observed under ihe ?ail of each big toe. This ominous ap|>earance was the precursor of a aeconJ attack of gangrene, which gradually extended ore r each foot and leg to within feur inches of the knes. A se|?uutiou then took place, aud in dne course ol time both limbs dropped off The fingers of the right hand were then attacked by this consuming malady, which extended to within a fsw inchea of the shoulder, and at length the right arm tell to the ground like the dead Vranch of a living The diaeaae then showed itself at the elbow of the left arm, and on the left shoulder, producing extensive euloliatiou of the bones, Ac. The intrgumenU of the tight side, near the wntre of the ribs, and of the right eye, were also affeetetl with the same destroying complaint in iu incipient stages. On examining the boy, who, notwithstanding he u deaf and mate, ii really intelligent und spughtly, the greatest marvel to ua waa, how it was possible for a constitution so very feeble and lifeless, that the system was rapidly falling to pieces from the death of its paru, could, win n reduced to a mrrr/rarmt nl of humarfity, bold out, and prolong for years t miserable ex E NE NE'V truer. Strange u it may rem, we found this piece of a child sitting at the dinner table with tlie rest of the famrly, and feediui| himaelf with meat, potatoea, bread, aad thrlike, with an f Tident relish of die hearty meal. His stumps of limbs, winch latrI y presented a hideous man of eating ulcers, are uow healing user kindly, and nothing but the seara are left o tell the injury done to the left boulder, and the part* that urround the right eye, die lower jaw, and the frag me uU of ear* still growing ou die head, die appearauca of which we shall not attempt to desert', e. The certain check fiern to this terrible spreading and hopeIra* malady?the rrmoral of the intenae protracted |?iua erer excited by irritable fuugeoua lleah connected with dead animal inaller?the quirt sleep, increased strength, and stable conealesencr so mtnifrst in the person of James?were all, and doubdea Justly, attributed by his mother tolhe exclusiveuse, for the lart six weeks of regular ixirtious of Mr. 0. C. BRISTOL'S SAKSAPARILLA. Those who hare witnessed the truly auspicious, and most unexpected effects of this medicine in this rery extraordinary case, are aoauimous in the opinion that had it been early administered when the disease was coinparatirely small and feeble, and the constitution sound and vigorous, it could not liare failed to prevent one of the greatest calamities that can befsl a human being.

Mth, 1141. North Clarence, Erie Co. Bloowield, Oakland Co., Mn., Jul)- 23, till Messrs. John Owen It Co., Detroit: Uetil.?Some time in the ye*r 1832, I ?u attacked with what was called by some of my atteudiug physicians, the Kiug's Evil. 1 immediately applied to a Dr. Thompson, who said it must be cut out; I then applied to another physician who ordered blistering. Dunns my sickness 1 employed eight different physicians, and by one I was advised to have my arm amputated, which 1 declined. Is the year *37, mortification set in, when 1 applied to a root doctor, who appeared to help it aniue. In that year 1 sold a span of horses awl two cows, and spekithe whole of it, say $IM, which ouly served to keep it back. 1 have used almost every thing 1 could hear of, without any great benefit. In July last, a cure was attempted by a person who, like all others, failed. The expense of all this has been at least S300. From about four inches below the shoulder, to about die middle of the fore arm there have bten at least twen y holes, many of them as large as a silver dollar, and half an inch deep. In February, 1842, laccidcntally came across a wrapper from a bottle of Bristol's Saisaparilla, and made up my miud to try the medicine. On the 13th day of lliat month, I commi need using it, and used a bottle a week for two or three months.when 1 found myself to all appearance completely cured. At any rate, since that time I have not felt auy pain from it. No sore* have appeared, and it seems perfecdy sound, and 1 can labor with it as well as with the other arm. I am so well satisfied of its superiority over every thing else that 1 hare tried, that I most earnesdy recommend iny person to begin using it immediately who may be similarly afflicted.

PETERS' MEDICATED LOZENGES are the most valuable discovery of the 19th century. They are entirely pleasant to the taste, and more efficient than any other medicine. These Lozenges are the result of long continued and |>atient investigation and experiment, eondnosed in cuticert by some of the most distinguished physicians in the Union, who, believiug that some of the best known remedies might be prepared in a palatable form, have directed their labors to that end, till they have produced .preparations in the popular form of Lozenges for nearly every disease incident to the human system.

It is admitted by all who have nsed them, (ami who has not) that Dr. Peters' Vegetable Pills are the most unrivalled medicine ever discovered by the ingeuuity of man. They are a sovereign cure for the following co eplaiuts?Yellow sua billious fevers, fever and ague, dyspepsia, croun, liver complaint, sick headache, jaundice, asthma, dronay. rheumatism, enlargement of the spleen, piles, colic, female cbstrnctions. heartburn, furred tcngue, nausea, distension of thr stomach and bowels, incipient diarrhiea, flatulency, habitual costiveness, loss of appetite, blotched or sallow compleziou, and all cases of torpor of the bowels, where a cathartic or an aperient is needrd. Thev are ezceedu.gly mi'd in their operation, producing neither nausea, griping nor debility. Dr. J. G. Smith, of Woodstock, Va. says?" They are a better Pill than I can make." He recommends their use. The igeDl at Strasbuigh, Va. says he supplies families for 30 miles arouqd with Peters' Pills, and they perform such remarkable cures that they are preferred to every other medicine. ? Mrs. E. Ward, of New York, was troubled with dysuepsia and liver complaint for li years. By using these Pills a short time she was completely cured. Miss Clark was afflicted with irregularities and obstruction, attended with most distressing symptoms. She wis cured by using Dr. Peters'Pills. Hon. E. D.

Thi> tait mortality can be almost entirely prevented by the use of Peters' celebrated Lozenges. Thousands and tens of thousands pine away and die without suspecting the real disease. The following ar- a lew of the symptoms; Headache, pale lips, (lushed cheeks, disturbed dieama, fevrrishnes*. thurst, bad taste in the month, offensire breath, itching of the nostrils, pain in the stomach, nausea, unnatural appetite, swelled stomach or limbs, sense of samething rising in the chest, fcc.

At times she wonld eat voraciously and sometimes eat nothing at all; and she was fast wasting awsy; her symptoms were so unusual and contradictory that the doctors knew not what to do, hut do what they would, she constantly grew worse, and reluctantly they declared she must die. At the request of a friend, the mother at this stage procured a bo* of Peters' Worm Lofenges. The first dose satisfied all that worms were the cause of all the child's sufferings, and two boxes effected a pep feet cure. Mr. J. W. Carpenter, merchant, Roosevelt st. N. Y., says Dr. Peters' Worm Lozenges possesses more merit than the doctor claims foi them. He has used them in his family with success when evciy other medicine failed. Wherever they have been ased they are preferred to all other remedies. In fact Dr. Peters and his distinguished associates, possessing many receipts of great value, selected from each the most valuable parts, and they confidently aay those lozenges cannot be improved. CORDIAL LOZENGES. Peters' Cordial Lozenges are a specific for the relief of nervous or sick headache, lowness of spirits or melancholy, Ian' guor and debility, either from previous disease or too free liv ing, tremors, spasm of the stomach, irritability of the nerves, hysterical affection, drowsiness, cholera morbus, sense of fatigue, and palpitation of the heart.

This article has been prepared at great expeuae, according to the new process of Llie Parisian pharmaceutists, and it confidently denominate! the only really valuable preparation of Sarsaparilla now otiered for sale in this country. Together with the active principle of the Smilax officinalis?the best species of the root?the Coliege have incorKrated that peculiar modification of sugar, which has en termed glycurrkixin.

The College wish thus particularly to guard the public against the |>ernicious tendency of mixtures, containing large quantities of this ]>oisoned liquorice. The " Extract," prepared by the College, contains also an appropriate quantity of the peculiar crystullizahle principle, obtained from that valuable vegetable bitter, Gentian, nailed Irom Qentius, King of Illy ria, who first discovered its great virtues.) A small portion of the active constituents ot the Ijiurut Sassafras, another vegetable, whose ethcacy as an alterative and purifier of the blood is well known, has likewise been added. These several articles have been incorporated, and their peculiar principles compounded in a highly concentrated form, and the result has been the production of a vegetable alterative ami tonic, unequalled for power and etticacy. The College merely add the following extract from the edition just published of Brande's "Practical Dictionary of the Materia Medica ? " This article has been prescribed in chronic rheumatism?in obstinate cutaneous eruptions?in indolent ulcers?in glandular attections?in diseases of the bones, attended by dull aching pains, tumors and bodes?wasting of the flesh?and H hat proved a valuable remedy, and has sometimes effected a cure where other alteratives hare been long administered in vain, and when the diseased state of the system has heen of many years duration.

NO. 176 Broadway,N.Y.?This Cordial having obtained a just celebrity on account of the many cures it has performed, in cases to which it is adapted, the public ia respectfully informed that itrelievesDyspepsiaand other disorders of the stomach. It ia peculiarly adapted to remove those complaints, not by constantly phvsieing, hut by strengthening the system. No g.eater mistake can be made than to suppose that Dyspe|isia, or auy other disease arising from debility, can be cured by a frruuent forced action on the bowels, by purgative medicines. When this complaint exists, the system is already too weak, and every additional dose tends to malce it more so. The Cordial, on the contrary, acting as a tonic, strengthens the digestive organs, and assists them to perform their functions as nature designed.? Hence it is found to he efficacious also in those diseases peculiar to females, which arise moit frequently from weakness than from any other cause. The Cordial likewise is a certain cure for the Nervous Headache, and affords relief in almost all af fections of the nervous system. It is an excellent preventive of costiveness and low spirits.

General Sessions. Before Recorder Tallmadge and Judge Lynch. Jamf.sR. Whitish, K?i|., District Attorney. Oct. 4.? C mtemyt of Court.?At the opening of the Court, the District Attorney called 'Anson Her rick, and John F- Hopes, publishers of the Aurora, who were cited to appear for an alleged contempt of court, in publishing an article relative to the trial of the Rev. Mr. Antoine Verren, which was read by the District Attorney. ?Thc Court state?l that the article alluded to purporting to be a report of the trial, was grossly incorrect?that it was calculated to bring the witnesses into contempt and rnucuie, ana mar as incy were compelled to attend by order of the court, it became the duty of the court to protect them while belore it. They, therefore, should in thiscase, impose a mild |>enalty compared (with a future offence of the same character. The court then ordered that a line of $'25 be imposed upon Herrick and Ilopes for a contempt of court, in the publication ol the article. Hurrick immediately stepped forward to pay the money, when Michael Walsh, the Reporter of the Aurora, drew tke amount from his [locket and tendered it to the clerk, which Herrick refused, and Walsh loft the court room with his money lying upon the table. [JamesGokdo*Beissett appeared before the Court to answer for the article that appeared in the Herald of the '23d ult., relative to the trial of Mr. Verren, which was as follows "General Sessions. Before Recorder Tallmadge, Judge Lynch, and Aldermen Carman and Bonnell. Sept. '2'2.?Trial of the Htv. Mr. .inloine Ftrrtn.?The alleged charge of perjury made against this gentleman, tiy De Bullion, who is now on Blackwell's Island, and Bartelemv, who has recently served his time out for a libel upon him, cam e up this day. The prosecution was conducted by Attorney General Barker and H. M. Western, Esq., the District Attorney having declined to act, as an attempt was made to indict him for subornation of perjury in the same bill with Mr. Verren. The defence was under the charge of Hugh Maxwell and Ogden Hoffman, Esqrs. De Bullion was sent for from Blackwell's Island, where he is now serving out his sentence, and brought upon the stand as a witness ! to sustain the alleged perjury ! He was detected in his cross-examination in all sorts of contradictory statements, and finally admitted that he had assumed two names?that he was educated a Catholic priest; joined the Protestant church under the charge of Mr-Verren, and held theofiiceof secretary of the vestry, without changing hit religion! and worshipped in the church according to all the forms of the Protestant faith. He also stated that he did not believe in the binding nature of an oath taken on the Protestant Bible! (This itand two hours, giving hii testimony against Mr. Verren. and after having sworn to tell the truth on a 1'rotestant Bible ft If such a hypocrite and convict can satisfy a jury of tnis country that any thing he can say under oath is entitled to the least credence, hone-t men by the thousands will be soon compelled to become his associates at Blackwell's Island." Mr. Bexisett stated that he had not seen the article until after it was published, it having been written by one of thecorpsof reporters attached to his establishment, but on reading it he could not discover anything that appeared like a contempt for the court or its rules, unless the last five lines could be toitured into such a meaning. He wished however to hear the opinion of the court upon the subject, and if they thought there was any thing in the article of a contemptuous character, he was ready to sbumit to the decision of the court. The Recorder said that there was a material difference between the report in the Herald and that in the Aurora, as that in the Herald was correct, and sustained by the evidence, and therefore did not come under the provisions of the statute prescribing the powers of the court, as it contained nothing that could be construed into contempt. The matter was therefore dismissed. Jud|e Lv^ch said that he considered the last five lines objectionable, as they were calculated to prejudge the tes timony of witness. He concluded, however, tnot there was nothing in the article that brought it under the statute, and therefore concurred with the Recorder. .Sentenced.?Samuel Schermerhorn pleaded guilty to stealing a cow from William Walton, 116 Nineteenth St., and was sentenced to six months in the Penitentiary.

Oct. -I, 1842.?This event, so memorable in the lives of the present graduating class, was cele brated yesterday in the Middle Dutch Church, with all the wonted pomp and circumstance, and parade of distinguished individuals. At half past 9 A. M., the procession moved lrom College (.ireen, and passed to the Church through Park Place, Broadway, and Cedar street. On arriving at the church, the usual exercises ol the day were preceded by the inauguration ot the President elect. Nathaniel F.Moore, L. L. D. It will be recollected that President Duer resigned on account of ill health some six months since. President Moore was lormerly the Protessor of Creek and Latin in the same Institution. An address was delivered by the Hon. Peter A. Jay, L. L. 1)., Chairman of tire Board ot Trustees, to which the President replied But we regret to say that such was the noise of people coming into the house, it was quite impossible to get an intelligible hearing of any of the introductory performances. The regular exercises of the day were then opened by prayer from the President, to which succeeded music, by Pennon's celebrated band, who performed numerous pieces on this occasion, with gieut credit to themselves. The following young gentlemen, candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, had parts assigned them, which they performed in the following order Abram S. Hewitt, William S. Keunochan, Kokkkt Jaffkav, Jr. William 11. Ebbets, William 1'inkney Stewart, Robert M. Olychant, John Sym, W. 11. Parmly, D. lv. Stanford, S. W. Roosevelt, C. E. Roberts, W. Rodman, Z. Rinu, Jr. Edwabj E. Potter, In relation to the performances, we have little to say. The subjects discussed on this occasion as on all others like it, were exclusively ol a scholastic character, and but ill-adapted to the minds of a popular audience. The young men followed on in the foot-steps of a long line of illustrious predecessors, and of course are chargeable with no blame. Yet it is not unkind to say they remind one of their own claa-ic Tityrus; Tityre tu patulae recubans aub tcgminn lagi; which, translated into English, reads thus:? O, Tityrya ! does your mother know you are out ? in other words, having been for eight or ten years immured within the wails of academical institutions, they have not yet entered upon the wide arena of the great world, with which they are practically but little acquainted. The two crack scholars of the present class, are Abram S. Hewitt, who look the gold medal, u pupil of Dr. Anthon's, and William S. kernochan, a pupil of the Rev. T. R. Huddart, both of this city.? Their parts, the first a Greek, and the latter a Latin, sululatory, may be sjaikeu of in the highest terms of praise, es|M-ciaflv for the beautiful enunciation. W. II. Ebbet's oration was good, so wasR. M. Olyphant's. W. H.VParmlv has a good voice. Z. Ring, jr., was graceful in his delivery. The most attractive piece, if we may judge by the applause bestowed, was delivered by Silas W. Roosevelt, an Essay on the Biography of Music. Several others might be deserving of more praise, but they spoke so low that we could not hear them. Alter these performances, sundry medals were delivered in each class; the only ones, however, which we have room to notice, were gold medals to A S. Hewitt, of the seniorclass; Wni. McCune, ot the junior class; J. 1'. G. Foster, of the Sophomore class; and J. W. Leavitt, of the Freshman class. The degree of Bachelor of Arts was then conferred upon the fourteen above named young men who had parts assigned them, and upon sixteen others, making a total of thirty students of the late Senior class. The degree of A. M. was conferred upon several gentlemen, and that of D. D. upon Gustavus Abeel of Geneva. The day was exceedingly fine, and the audience was immense; indeed, the spacious church was crowded to its very utmost capacity with the numerous jmrents, brothers, sister?, and interested friends of the college students. The young ladies present were a'tractive, and the young gentlemen admitted upon the stage endeavored,in theirperlormances, to out vieeach other in winning smiles from their lady loves. There were an unusually large number of the clergy present; among them were Bishop Onderdonk, Dr. Wainwright, Dr. Berrian, and others. Among other gentlemen of distinction upon the stage we noticed his Excellency Governor Seward, Chancellor Frelinghuysen, of the New York University; Judge Berrien, ot the U. S. Senate; the Hon. Gulian C. Verplanck. Hon. S. B. Ruggles, Hon. Peter A. Jay, Jas. Campbell, Esq., Ogden Hoilman, Esq., Philip Hone, Esq., and all the officers of the College. Among the other strangers of distinction we also observed a magnificent finger ring. Gov. Seward sat upon its right, Philip Hone upon the left, various honorable gentlemen in the rear, and an audience of lovely ladies in front. It was a gold ring of stupendous dimensions?a half dollar would not hide it. Whether it was an amethyst, or a topaz, or a beryl, or a carbuncle, we cannot pronounce with certainty, although to our eye it had the appearance of a carbuncle, probably the very carbuncle spoken of in the Arabian Nights. Within the circumference of this ring was a finger?to the finger was attached a big hand?in the hand was a gold headed cane? and on the cane leanad the very learned Col. W. L. Stone, editor of the Commercial Advertiser, and Professor of Animal Magnetism for the Universe. Ha ! ha ! ha ! Newark, Ohio. [Correspondence of the Herald. Nkwabk, Ohio, Sept. 30, 1B42. Political Enthutiatm in Ohio?Probable Retult of the Election?Great Matn Meetingt of the PeopleDayton Barbecue? The Supreme Court of Ohio? The Granville Bank? Wheat, tfc. $-c. As the day of our election approaches, more and more doubt hangs over the result. The politicians are particulatly active, and are sanguine in proportion to their activity, but (he people generally are leas enthusiastic, especially in the country. In the towns there are always certain cliques full of a kind of fanatic enthusiasm for theirown peculiar notions, and who foolishly fancy that every one must needs regard such notions as being endowed with the same wonderful importance in the eyes of all as they are esteemed to possess in those cliquei. The greater political excitement in the towns,where the whigs have for the most part the ascendancy, than in the country where the democratic strengih chiefly lies, will tell much to the advantage of the Whigs at the election. On the other hand, the Liberty or Abolition ticket will most seriously affect the whigs in certain districts in the State. The Tyler |>arty will make common cause with the democratic party, General Murphy, their great champion in this State, being engaged from day to day in delivering public addresses, in* which he condemns the whigs, and declares himself in favor of Shannon for Governor ; and, lastly, the democratic papers, from many sections of the State, contain numerous renunciations of whig doctrines. Governor Gorwin, and ex-Governor Shannon, the rival candidates, are traversing the State for the purpose of arousing the enthusiasm of their reactive parties. The Hon. William Allen, and Governor Shannon, addressed the people in this city on the 20th. Allen then proceeded to Dayton, where the democrats had a great convention on the 24th, and Gov. Shannon, and the Hon. B. B. Taylor of this city, proceeded to Tiffin to address a convention, held thereon the 22d. On the 29th (yesterday) the great Whig Barbecue was tc be holden at Dayton. Every portion of the State, even the most distant, has sent forth its 'juntas; and, from present appearances, I judge it must have been about the greatest affair of the kind in our political annals. Henry Clav w as to be there, accompanied by a host of distinguished whigs from Kentucky, to be met by all that Ohio boasts of in the whig party. One hundred thousand was the number, fixed upon beforehand, to compose this immense convention. The Supreme Court of Ohio is now in session in Newark. The Hon. Matthew Birchard, and the Hon. Nathaniel C. lie id, the two new judges, elected at the lastregnlar session of the legislature, hold [ the court, and acquit themselvesin a very creditable manner. A very important case, the quo wmrranin > against the Granville Bank, comes up tins term- It JL1>. Prlca Two Unto was sent back last winter to this county from I he Court in Hank, to be argued on demure rs relative to a legislntive recognition of thin bank, Arc., and to try the matter oi fact whether the bank baa exercised banking power without interruption lor a pe- 1 riod ot twenty yearn. It will then be reserved, probably, lor the Court in Bunk to sit next win er in Columbus ; and it" there determined adversely lo the bunk, it will, it ia supposed, be taken up to the Supreme Court oi the United States by the stockholders living out ot Ohio. In the meantime, the bank having tailed, and wishing to wind up its affairs, linds it impossible, in many cases, to collect its debts, because, if it shall be determined that the bunk har no banking powers, it cannot, under the law ot Ohio, collect its debts, being a fraudulent institution. Great quantities of wheat are daily sold in this market, some of which is purchased by Canadian houses. The price is, 1 believe, 44 cents per The weather continues warm, and the roads so dusty that travellers have to breathe an atmosphere of dust. Whig conventions, it has been observed, in this State, are always accompanied by rain, but that of yesterday, held under the auspices of Henry Clay, did not get up a storm so widespiead as to embrace this city within its action. The omen for once, perha|<s, is powerless. L'Occiukntk. Auburn. fCorrenpondence of the Herald.] Aiibuk.v, Sept. 27, 1842. Crtat Excitement, almost a Riot?Attempt at lynching an Abolition fxctwer?Ultimate Escape of the modern Clarkson. Our usually quiet, as well as " lovely village," was last night thrown into a sudden ferment, the particulars of which I hasten to lay before the countless readers of the Herald. Throughout yesterday it was announced, not only on pa|*r, but also on shingle hand bills, that " Mr. Abel Prown, corresponding secretary of the Eastern N. Y. Anti-Slavery Society, would, Providence permitting, deliver a lecture on behalf of the society, at Tenqierancp Hall, at seven o'clock, p. m. and, in addition to the modest saving clause, it was added, by way of extra attraction,that "the famous Clay circular, for which Mr. B. stands indicted, would be presented to the meeting." , This inducement, however, was wholly unnecessary to secure a full house, for the lecturer j<ossessed u popularity, the nature and extent of which, as the i _i -J i.? i 1 r..H.. I .-J m-ijuci bhuwcu, lie nau nuiuuy uiiuciittieu. Some seven years ago, this same Mr. Abel Drown visited Auburn, with the philanthropic intention of enlightening the natives on the subject of temperance ; but his modtu ajterandi was of such a description that a number of our citizens, goaded on by his unblushing effrontery, adopted certain decisive measures to shorten his inuuisitorialj>roceedings, so that he barely escaped, uy the skin of his teeth, from being enveloped in a garment of tar and feathers. The bare announcement of his name in the bills on the present occasion, recalled at once the recollection ol his former adventures, and long before the appointed time the Hall was filled to overflowing. Precisely at the hour lie elbowed his way to the speakers' desk, accompanied by his trusty aid, Mr. > Hopkins, vyho opened die business of the evening by a splendid eilort at oratory which far excelled " All Greek, all Roman fame." We frankly confess our inability to do him justice, but in the plenitude of his unbounded benevolence be will be pleased to accept ihe will for the deed. " In all ages, ar.d in every clime," he observed, " the great, the good, the benefactors of mankind, but more particularly those of a darker hue, have been assailed and persecuted in their meritorious attempts to tevolutionize and manul.ictuie public sentiment; nay, even in our own tunes, ..ud dial, too, in this present assembly, there are some who came here with malice prtjtnte ; but in order that these renegades way be distinctly known, 1 now i call upon all those in favour of hearing ME, the first person singular, that is myself, and after ME the noble, the disinterested, the patriotic Abel Brown, to signify this their inter.t by immediately rising up." Here he was interrupted by long and lamentable groans from all parts of the house, and Iub confident appeal was like "Calling spirits from the vasty deep," for the more he called the more they would not rise; at length, slowly, "solitary and alone," one individual took the floor; and he rose, not, however, to congratulate the modern Clarkson on Iiim rhfprinv r^rpntinn hnf fn rr it/A Kim | ii significant iiint thai he had better-absquutu ! late forthwith, before the meeting should adopt summary proceedings to eject him unceremoniously from the room. Hereupon Mr. B. started to hia feet, and, clenching hia fiat, in the attitude of defiance, with glaring eye ami distended nostril, he avowed an unflinching determination to be heard in defence of " human rights." lie neglect his post in the hour of peril or apparent danger* Never. Taking hia life in his hand, he was ever ready to march through fire and faggot in defesce of thu holy cause ; and, thank heuven, he should never prove recreant to hia sacred trust. This magniloquent ebullition was responded to by such co-mingling of groans, yells, and hisses, as completely baffles all description. Any attempt at order being now entirely useless, the champion's courage began to ooze fast from his finger-ends, and, chameleon-like, he bee by times black, white, and Brmrn. Finally, believing with Hudibras that " He who boasts ami runs away May live to boast some other (lay, While he who is in conflict slain Can never rise to boast again," he seized, with a desperpte clutch, the far-famed " Clay paper," and, to avoid being pitched through the window, lie made his escape by the door; Irom thence he effected a retreat to the store of his patron, Mr. Hopkins, which in a few minutes was surrounded by a dense multitude, eagerly bent upon furnishing Mr. B. with certain unequiyocal marks of the estimation in which he and his disciples are held in this vicinity. Thejiolice were speedily upon the spot but there being no disposition on the part of the mob to disperse, it was deemed advisable for Mr. B. to decamp with the western train of cars, which would leave in half an hour. But here a dilemma interposed. How was he to reach the depot, which was distant some quarter of a mile, or thereabouts 1 At length they hit upon the ex|>edient of dressing one of the shop-boys in female apparel, and witn this lady on one arm and Mr. Hopkins on the other, surrounded on all sides by a posse of constables, the redoubtable Mr. B. sallied from his retreat, ana made for the depot, which, out of respect for the supposed female, he was i>ermitted to reach in safety ; but not even the thundering blant from the locomotive could drown the deafening howl which greeted his departure However much mobbing is to be deprecated, this demonstration of public feeling will, doubtlem, afford a salutary lesson to abolitionists and all other disturbers of the public peace in times to come.
