James is llie son of a farmer, the offspring of healthy and mimtalile parents, who have a nn menus family of robust nhildren. Without any assignable canse, he was raiMenly depnved of (he sense of hearing some ten years since, which was soon followed by what was probably an attack of the dry gangrene, This rapidly dea'royed first the palate, the bones of Use roof of the month, and then n considetable imrtion of the upper jaw, upper lip, and the wh'de.of the nose, both bones and eartik-ge, as well as integnmanu,. It wonld be difficult to imagnse m what way a mora, unsightly deformity could be impressed spun the 'human face divine.' This frightful disease ceased iterator ft* t on the lace after several mentis, to renew them again in other parts of the system with greater and moie destructive severity. 80me two years go, a " black spot,"?as the intelligent mo ther of this most unfortunate child told the writer ef this?was observed under the wail of each big toe.

The integuments of the light side, near the centre of the ribs, and of the right rye, wire also affected with the same destroying complaint in its incipient stages. Oa examining the boy, who, notwithstanding he is deaf an.1 mate, is really intelligent and sprightly, the greatest marvel lo na was, h iw it was possible foi a constitution so very feeble and lifeless. that the system was Mindly falling to pieces from the death of lU parts, could, when reduced to a mtrrfratmrtu of humanity, bold oat, ami prolong for years a miserable eg E NE NJ istence.

Detroit: Ueul.?Some time in the ye?r 1832, I was attacked with what was called by some of my attending physicians, the Knit's Evil. I immediately applied to a Dr. Thompson, who said it must be cut out; 1 then applied to another physician who ordered Mistering. During my sickness 1 employed eight different phygieiane, and by ona 1 was advised to have my arm amputated, which 1 declined, lathe year *37, mortification aet in, when I applied to a root doctor, who apiieared to help it some. In that year I told a span or horses slid two cows, and spent the whole of it, say tDO, which only served to keep It back. I have used almost every thing i could henr of, without any grant benefit. In Jaly last, a cure was attempted by a person who, like all othen, tailed. The expense of all this has bean at least F500. From about four inches below the shoulder, to about die middle of the fore arm then have been at least twea:y holea, many of them as large as a silver dollar, and half an inch deep. In February, 1841, 1 accidentally came across a wrapper from a bottle of Bristol's Sarsapartlla, and made up my mind to try the medicine. On the 15th day of that month, I commenced using it, and used a bottle a week for two or three months,when I found myself to all appearance completely cured. At any rate, since that time 1 have not felt any pasn from it. No aorea have appeared, end it seems perfectly sound, and 1 can labor with it aa well aawith the other arm. I am so well satisfied of its superiority over every thing else that I have tned, that I most earnestly recommend my person to begin using it immediately who may be similarly afflicted.

PETE119' MEDICATED LOZENGE9 are the most valuable discovery of the 19th century. They are entirely plea*aut to the taste, and more efficient than any other medicine. These Lozenges are the result of long continued aud patient investigation and experiment, conducted in concert by some of the most distinguished physicians in the Union, who, believing that some of the best known remedies might be prepared in a palatable form, have directed their labors to that end, till they nave produced preparations in the popular form of Lozenges for nearly every disease incident to the human system. TO PARENTS we say, do not ^e without these Lozenges at any time?attend to these suggestions as you value the lives of your children. PETERS' PILLS. TO THE WHOLE WORLD! It is admitted by all who hava used them, (aoti who has notj that Dr. Peters' Vegetable Pills are the most unrivalled medicine ever discovered by the ingenuity of man. They are a sovereign cure for the following eo nplaints?Yellow and billions fevers, fever and ague, dyspepsia, croup, liver complaint, sick headache, jaundice, asthma, dropsy, rheumatism, enlargement of the spleen, piles, colic, female obstructions, heartburn, furred tongue, nausea, distension of thi slotnsch and bowels, incipient diarrheas, flatulency, habitual costivenesi, loss of appetite Jblotched or sallow complexion, and all cases of torpor of the bowels, where a cathartic or an aperient is needed. The* are exceedingly mild in their operation, producing neither nausea, grilling nor debility. Dr. J. G. Smith, of Woodstock, Va. says?" They are, a better Pill than I can make." He recommends their use. The agent at fltrasburgh, Va. says he supplies families for 30 miles around with Peters' Pills, and they perform such remarkable cures that they are preferred to every other medicine. ?. Mrs. E.

Dr. Peters' Worm Lozenges are tne surest and safest Worm destroyer ever discovered. It is estimated that in the United States, 100,000 CHILDREN DIE tfEABLY from the effect of Worms alone. Thia vast mortality can bv almost entirely prevented by the use of Peters' celebrated Lozenges. Thousands and tent of thousands pine away and die without suspecting the real disease. The following are a few of the symptom* j Headachs, pale lips, flushed cheeks, disturbed dreams, fevenshnets, thunt, bad taste in the mouth, offensive breath, itching of the nostrils, pain in the stomach, nausea, unnatural appetite, swelled stomach or limbs, sense of samething rising In the chest.

The first dote satisfied all that worms were the cause of all the child's sufferings, and two boxes effected a perfect cure. _ Mr. J. W. Carpenter, merchant, Roosevelt st. N.

Wherever they have been need they are preferred to all other remedies. In fact Or. Peters and his distinguished associates, possessing many receipts of great value, selected from each the most valuable parts, and they confidently say ihoee lozenges cannot be improved.

There is a vein of good old, sound sterling, unbending honesty running through all this great statesman's correspondence, which it will be well tor our politicians of the p.eseui day to read and imitate. We call their attention particular to the following sentiment, we haJ almost said prophecy, for it is but too truly fulfilled " If it should once seem to be a system of any Stats to violate its faith whenever it is the least insonvenient to keep it, it will unquestionably have an ill eflect upon foreign negociations, and tend to bring government at home into contempt, and of coarse destroy its influence " HEAD Uhastes* liLU 1IJ9. Sir, (apt. Coleman delivered me your two letter* of the 6th and flth instant. The pleasure, I have, in corresponding with you, will iliiyoic me, whenever I have any thing to communicate that may be worth your attention, or that appear* to me o?to trouble you with my sentiment* : But 1 shall not expect you to make an equal return eithur in quantity or frequency.?Tou wili, in this, mtirely consult your own convenience. I had previously llattered myself, that your idea* and mine would correspond, in a certain matter, and I am glad to And 1 wu not mistaken.?1 doubt not the defects of a certain synod, will appear to you not the subject of speculation only ; but as disorders in the state, that require a remedy, and will, as far as your influence, reaches, contribute to it.?Shall I speak what seems to me a most melancholy truth I?It is this?that with the most adequate means to e:isure success in our contest, the wemtnuas of our councils will, in uli probability, rum us. Arrangements on which, the existence of the army depends, and almost the possibility of another campaign, are delayed in a most astouishing manner ; and 1 doubt whether they will be adopted at ail. A late resolve directs O W. [Gen. Washington] to ilk the number of men under which U H [Gen. Howej shall not send any parties out of his lines, on pain ol being treated as marauder.?The folly of this is truly ridiculous ; but as there is perhaps nothing but folly in it, it may be excused in them.?Another resolve made lor punishing kidnapper* or persons who aid the enemy in carrying olf the peaceable inhabitants has a retrospective view to those who have assisted, as wall as a perspective one to those who shall assist in such praotioes?Thus we have gotten into the spirit of making tapoit facto law, or rather violating all law. Another resolve, by plain implication, acknowledges a thing not founded on tact, which is vary injurious to us?to wit, that we have inlisted pri toner* of war?Inn silences ail our complainti against the enemy for a similar practice, and furnishes them with a damning answer to any thing we can say on the subject.?This is at least an instance of folly and inconsideraUon?and terres to prove the general charge? These men seem alto to have embraced a system of infidelity?They have violated the convention of Saratoga ; and 1 have reason to believe the ostensible motives for it ware little better than pretences, that had no foundation ?I have lately seen some letters from Burgoigne on the subject.?Thvre was however a strong temptation for this, and it may be excused, though 1 cannot say the measure is to my taste.?Lately, a dag, with provisions and cloathing for the British prisoners, with Q W. [Oen. Washington] passport was seised at Lancaster?The adair was attended with circumstances of violence and meaness that would disgrace hottentots?Still more lately?O W. [Oen Washington's] engagements with O H, [Oen. Howe] lor an exchange of prisoners, has been most shamefully violated. Co [Congress] have resolved that no exchange shall take place till all account* are settled end the ballance due the U: S: [United States] paid. The beauty of it is?that on a lairoi settlement, we shall without doubt be in Mr. Howe's debt; and in the mean time we detain his officers and soldiers, as a security for the payment The operation of this resolve, though it does not plainly appear upon the face of it, is to put oft an exchange, per' haps for ever. At any rate it cannot take place all next summer. It is thought to bs bad policy to go into an exchange; but admitting this to be true, it ia much worse policy to commit such frequent breaches of faith, and ruin our national chaiacter. Whatever refined politicians may think ?it is of great consequence to preseve a national character ; and if it should once seem to be a system in any state to violate its faith, whenever it ia the least inconvenience to keep it, it will unquestionably have an ill-eflect upon foreign negociations aud tend to bring Government at home into contempt, and of course to destroy its influence ?The general notions ol justice and humanity are implanted in almost every human breast ; and ought not to be too lreely shocked?In the present case?the passions of the country and army are on the side of an exchange ; and a studied attempt to avoid it will disgust both, uu i serve to make the service odious. It will injure drafting and recruiting, discourage the militia, and increase thi discontents of the army. The prospect of hopeless captivity cannot but be very disagreeable to men constant!} exposed to the chance of it?Those, whose lot it is to fal in-.o it, will have little scruple to get rid of it by joining the enemy.? It it Mid not to be our preient interest to exchange, be cauie we should endeavour, by and by, to take advantage of the enemy's weakneM to strike some decisive blow If we should fail in this, which I believe we shall?when they get reinforced?we shall not think it our interest to add to the strength of an enomy, already strong enough, and go on ad infinitum The truth is considered in the mere view of barter, It never can be our interest to exchange j the constitution of our army, from the .short term ef inlistment, the dependence we are obliged to place in the militia, are strongly opposed to it; and, if the argument of present interest 1ms adhered to, we never can exchange?I may venture to assert, there never can be a time more proper than the present, or rather a month or two hence ; and, go about it as soon as we please, the previous negotiations necessary and other circumstances will of course procrastinate it for some time. And I woul ask, whether in a republican state and a republican army ; such a cruel policy as that of exposing those men who are fdrmost in defence of their country to the miseries of hopeless captivity can succeed! For my own part I have so much of the milk of humanity in me, that 1 abhor such Nerenian maxims; and 1 look upon the old proverb, that honeety it the ieit policy to tie so generally true, that I can never expect any good from a systematical deviation from it; and I never can adopt the reasonings of some American politicians deducible from their practice, that no regard is to be paid to national character?or the rules of good faith.? I dwell upon the faults of Congress because I think they strike at the vitals of our opposition and of our future prosperity?and with this Idea?I cannot bat wish that every Gentleman of influence in the country should think with me. We have nothing new in camp.?Save that Capt Barry, late of a Continental frigate, has destroyed with a few gun boats?two large ships belonging to the enemy, laden with forage from Rhode Island. He also took an armed schooner, which be has sines been obliged to run on shore after a gallant defence.?Tis said he has saved her cannon It stores?among tho ordinance lour brass how it zera.?Some accots. say the enemy art preparing to evacuate Philadelphia.

Had we get in this part anv intelligence worth mentioning to you, I would hare aooner done myaelfthe honor of writing yon a letter, thereby keeping up that correspondence in which I find a particular honor and pleasure. But the poor newa that may hare come to hand were all coming from eaatern quarters, and were therefore perfectly known to yen l>c lor a they could hare reached our lamp?for our part we hare hut little contributed to the entertainment of newspaper reader*?buthad Mr. Clinton pi-misted in his offensive project* against Rhode Island, 1 think that here and there he would hare met with a double stroke, Iho reunion of which would hare pror'd fatal to Oreat Britain, and then 1 would hare enjoy'd the pleasure of taking my friend Oct. Clinton by the hand in the good city of New York. 1 was then, ay dear Sir, at Rhode Island where I hare been made perfectly happy by thousands striking proofs of a growing and erer las ting amity between two nations whom I love, and whose alliance is become natural. The inhabitants of New York are perfectly satisfied with the French, and the torys themselves, who are numerous in that place, don't know how to account for the behaviour of those men whom they r Grand Mother* and the Britiah Gazeteers had represented to them under the shape of every thing that is bad. You, my dear Mr, as an ennemy to Britain, a friend to the Alliance, and one who will glory in any tbiag that does honor to America, you would hare been pleas'd with the spirit which brought forth the militia to the support of therr allies?I do aaanre you, and I noticed it to the French with a peculiar sense of pride, that they r exertions were greater on the occasion, than they wonld hare been had tneir own troops call'd for theyr asaistanee? which I think, la a glorious proolof the generosity and liberality of the American nation?in the same time, the gratitude of the French, theyr unfeigned, and I might say confidential encomiums, the dispositions which I saw on both part* for union and good understanding, hare a Horded me the higheet satisfaction. On the new* of our army'* marching towards New York, I hastened back to my colour* which I would have timely Joln'd for the grand stroke that was intended by onr heroic General. By the Alliance we hear that thirty-two Britiah ships were o(TBrest, that thirty-two were gonelrou Cadiz to fight them, and afterwards iorm a junction with the Brett fleet, while the second division which was ready and embark'd would be sunt over to America?that Irigatte, it is IERA 12. aid, hat despatches for nt, but as they are not yet come to hand, I know nothing more particular than rommua rej>orti. By a vessel arrired from Cape Francois, it is said that the lecondol August Commodore titticbaa with two and thirty ahipa of the line, w ent to Port au Prince, there to join Mr. Ue la Molt*'* piquet, from which place he waa to take St. Yago *ome Spanish ships, and that this formidable armament, with seventeen thousand men, were bound to Jamaica. It is to be lamuuted, my dear Sir, that (Jreave's arrival has deprived us fur a while of the Naval superiority?that will he still more lamented by the i>oople who not being led into our secret circumstances may believe that we are ready for a co-oj>eration. But from what 1 kuow of the intention* of the French goveruuteut, 1 can without hesitation give you the most positive assurance that the socoud division w 11 arrive, that the latent come* in the autumn the stronger it will he, and that France mean* to keep, pay, aud subsist in this country a French division wholly submitted to General Washington's orders, which aided by a naval foroe will uol leave ui till it has elfectually put au end to the war. But suppose, my dear Sir, it was arrived now, and w-e was obliged to submit to a foreign eye our internal cir cumstauces?how short did the blutes tall irom what was expected and promised. What by way of example ha* Pennsylvania done toward* recruiting her Battalion* ( and for the present thia small body of men, *o different from what we ought to oollect for a cooperation, ia it not under the mo?t distressing and miierable circumitance* for want of proviiions?to that itarving condition our little forage toward* Bergen allorded a temporary and very hort comfort?but lcoufe** 1 wa* delighted with the idea of insulting the British by a bold movemeat, which gave them that opportunity ol lighting u* they *o much talked of, and which put* them under the same disgrace as that of a man who refuses a challenge. Nothiug, my dear Sir, uothiug in the world, not even a victory could more effectually do honor to America, and put an end to the war than the noble, spirited, resolution of the New England States. What will the British say w ho boaatodof the American tranquillity, and have told to the world that the flame of liberty was almost extinguished? That doctrine, my dear sir, and 1 had many opportunities of aeciug it in Europe, was uncommonly propagated?inspiring our friends with coofldeuce and affection, our loes with terror, and a conviction that the point must be given up, ail Europe with admiration, and with the desire of courting the lriendship of that people which rouses every day with more spirit and strength, such will be the happy uliects ol those resolutions relating to empower Congress to strengthen the Union, to raise an army lor war, and employing those means ol subsisting it which arc in the country. The neceuily of those measure* is obvious, but from the observations I made in Europe, be certain that it will have the happiest effects ui favor ol America?that intelligence has allorded a great happiness to Oeueral Washington, and I wish to ie so certain that ail the Status will adopt the measures as 1 am that it will ce immediately entered into by the people of New York and strongly supported by your influence. Adieu, my dear Sir, 1 beg you wiil please to portion my respects to your family, aud believe me with the highest regard and most sincere all'ection your Excelleuoy't most obedient humble servant, LAFAYE TTE.

A Gentleman lately from France, Agent for a mercantile house in Paris, is now In this town, with proposals for supplying our Armies with everything wanted. This house has already generously supplied us with Cannon, Arms, Ammunition, Cloathing, kc. ko. to the amount of ?-100,000 sterling, with the arrival of more daily expected, they even oner to supply us with specie; you may guess from whence this large fund arises, when you peruse the inclosed political letter, brought over by their Agent, which is not to be communicated, but to such as aro trustworthy. Congress are doing everything in their power for bringing a powerful army into the field early the ensuing campaigue, but meet with many obstructions, from self interested individuals, who have nothing more in view than present gain, however we are informed from North Carolina, that state has 6000 ready to march when called for. and from Virginia, that they expect to have their Ba tallious complea;, our greatest dependence for success must bo the haviug an Army aarly in the field.

The very Important point of View in which Congress J.tally holds up the security of the Communication of Hudson* River, by their Resolution of the 5th Nov. last, as well as my duty to this State, the safety of which must moro Immediately Depend upon its being ettected before the opening ot the Spring, will I nutter myiell apologue for my repeatg to Congress that very little progress is yet made towards the Completion of that business, it olten happens that on the first of March the River i" Navigable through the Highlands and always bef. tl middle of that Month, the very short time therpf 't remains to Compleat the Necessary work the most vigorous exertions.

Sia I have received your letter of the l'Jth inst., wherein I observed you still persevered in the procrastination of the meeting ol the Commissioners. That a measure urged by yourself as confessedly interesting to the unhappy piisoners, on both sides, and in which I cannot conceive j on to be controuled, should lie thus peremptorily suspended, without any reason assigned, carries with it the appearance of something disingenuous. My lait letter wax in my opinion clear and explicit on the subject of General Lee: and my propoiition concerning General Prescot, might, I think, have obviated any suspicion of ambiguity on my part.

New Toy sebktng's restorative cordial. NO. 476 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 adnoied, the public is respectfully informed that it rrlievesDy tpejuia and other disorders of the stomach. It is peculiarly adaiged to remote those complaints, uot by constantly physiciag, but by strengthening the system. So g.eater mistake can be made than io suppose that Dyspepsia, or any other disease arising from debility, can be cured by a frequent forced action on the bowels, by purgative medicines. When this complaint exists, the system is . I ready too weak, and every additional dose tends to make it more so. Tue 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 disease* peculiar to females, which arise more frequently from weakness tliau from any oilier cause. The Cordial likewise is a certain core for the Nervous Headache, and affords relief in almost all af factions of the nervous system. It is an excellent preventive of costiveness and low spirits. The aged and infirm of boih sexes, and persons of sedentary habits, prone to costiveness, hare exi erieuced great benefit from il. It speedily |>rornotes strength in all eases of general debility, returns a good ami healthy appetite, gives tone and rigor to the whole system, ami is highly beneficial as a tonic in convalesence from fevers and other acute disorders.
