The first is that of a highly respectable merchant of New York, who declared to us that their use speedily relieved him of a cough, seated pain in the side, and many symptoms of a pulmonary complaint, and he ia now en tirely well. The second that we shall notice is that ofa young man named Robbins, a resident of this city, who about one year since was visited wit i an attack of Paralysis which affected the whole side of bin body. We accompanied a medical friend to h<s residence, No. 96 Beaver street, on Saturday, to enquire into his case. We found that he had been deprived entirely ef the use of one arm and leg, and that seusation bad been lost to the whole side of his body. He hid been unable to use the leg in walking, or the arm in eating, and the physicians said they could not help him. Within the last few week* he has worn two and four of Dr. Cristie's Galvanic Rings, and used the Mag netic Fluid. and the effect upon his paralytic limbs ia astonish ing. The death-like coldness left them, the numbness began to give way to many sensations of returning life and leeling, perspiration came our freely, and he has been rapidly gaining, and while before he wore the Rings he was unable to articulate distinctly, walk or feed himself ; yet now he talks freely, rides out, walks some, and for the most part is able to help himself. These cases, coming to on r personal knowledve , cert-iinly testi fy to the merits of Dr. Cristie's Galvanic Rings and Magnetic Kluid." Dr. Cristie Dear Sir? 1 have been severely afflicted for the last eight years with cramp in my less and thighs, frequently suffering the most eicraci?ting pains, the cords of my legs having contracted into knots. I have iried every " remedy" that I haveever heard of, without the least saccess. In truth, I seemed only to be getting worse. From a favorable account which I accidentally heard, I was induced to try the effect of your Galvanic Rings and Magnetic Fluid. In less than twenty-four honrs after wear ing two of the Rings, one ou each hand, the severe pain had en tirely left me. and two weeks having now elapsed without any ?ecurrence of complaint, 1 believe a cure has b-eu effected by your discovery, and deem it a dnty to inform you of the lact, and state my willingness to have it mnde public. My wife has been severely troubled with Chronic Rheumatism, affecting her in various parts of the body, which haa been cured, as she be lieves, effectually, by the use of the Rings and Magnetic Fluid, after atrial of hat a lew days. 1 shall feel pleased in satisfying the incredulous of the truth of the above on personal applica t G" SAMUEL 8HIELDS, 195 Eldndge street. Nrw Yiu, June 25, 1145. New York, June S3, 1345. Dr. A. H. Cristie Dear Sir ? I have from mv childhood been afflicted with almost constant nervous headache and rheumatic pains in my legs and arms. I Inve often sufferedso intensely that it has pre vented me from follow .nf my usual occuiwitien and frequently destroyed my appetite. My nn-vous debility and weakness has consequently been so gnat that after having tried almost every thing without any relief, 1 gave up in despair. I was recom mended to try your Galvanic Rings and Magnetic Fluid, and o ily at a friend'# urgent solicitation, was induced to do so. Its effect upon mv system was almost miraculous. After a few hours the application appeared to strengthen my nerves, relieve me of my headache, and I have had no relapse of the rheuma tism or any pains since the first day. I would, therefore, un hesitatingly recommend your Galvanic Rings and Fluid to those afflicted as I have been. Respectfully. JACOB A- OGSBURY, 162 William street. These certificates are published for the, purpose of inspiring an honest confidence in his discovery, which Dr. Cristik be lieves it deserves. If it were neceasary, many others conld be Eiven, which may baseen at the office, 134 Fulton street. In all inds of Rheumatism and Nervous Complaints, the beneficial effect is certain and lasting, and in all cases wh<re the Qxlvanic Batteries or Magnetic Machines are recommended, the Galva

We furnish oar mercantile community with the following important instruction# to the Collectors o^ the various ports ia the Uaioa. It will be seen that all unclaimed goods are to be sold on account of whom it may concern sixty days after they arrive, (or ninety dHys if from beyond th? Cape of Good Hope,) ami that a sufficient ]<ortion ol all claimed goods are to be sold to pay duties, if the duty is not paid in sixty or ninety days after completing the en try. Thib will make a general delivery of all mer chandise now locked op in our public stares, and the knowing ones will doubtless be on hand for bar gains. We understand the public stores are well filled with goods included in the instructions : ? Tie?ii:u I)KrARTMENT, July 11th, 1844. 8ia : The Naval Officer at New York, having, under date of the 5th inst., submitted for the oonaidaration aad dec ii ion of the Department, the lubject of interest chargeable by law on failure to pay the duties teaming on merchandize in catk, T have to communicate for your government the following viewa and instructions on the subject. By the 12th section of the Tariff Act of the 80th Au ?st. 181*2, the duties imposed on all imported merchan is, are required to be paid in cash. As ft has long since been judicially settle t, that duties accrue on importation, that is to say, so soon as the goods are brought within any port with the intention of being unladen and sold there, it legitimately follows as a consequence, that if the duties are not paid at the time they accrue, interest at taches and runs from that period until the duties are paid by the importer or owner, or are realized in the mode indicated by law. The date of the entry of the vessel, would therefore ordinarily flx the time when interest on the duties commence* ; but an exception to this- rule oc curs, by reason of the privilege accorded by law, in al lowing Id or 30 working days, dependent on the tonnage of the vessel, for discharging her cargo. Consequently, importers are at liberty at any time, within these speci- 1 tied periods, to make entry ot their goods, and on doing I so, and paying the duties in cash, or by a deposit of mo ney with the Collector, deemed adequate to cover the actual duties on asceitainment, no interest accrues in such cases. When the owner, importer or oonsignee chooses to avail himself of the indulgence allowed by the section before mentioned, and Duffers his goods te go into Public i Store, there to remain for the period of 60 or 90 days, as the case may be, before becoming liable to be sold for the duties, the party must, neverthelete, make entry of his goods before they nre carried to the Public Stores, and permit or order for storage of the goods should be given, as usual in other cases. If at any time, within the Eriods before stated, or prior to the sale, the party comes rward and pays the duties, interest is chargeable from the date of the entry made at the time the goods were stored. 8o, where goods are sold in pursuance of the 12th section of the Act, to make up the duties, interest runs from the date of the last mentioned entry. Before considering the provisions of the 13th section it is proper to remark that the utmost indulgence in re gard to any imported merchandize contemplated by the act of 1842, is simply a forbearance to sell to realize the duties, for tho periods of sixty or ninety days, before indicated. Hence it is manifest that the 13th section contemplated this restriction, and consequently, in its repealiug clause, annuls so much of the AOth section of the act of 3d March, 1700, as allows unclaimed merchan dize to remain in public store for the term of nine months before becoming liable to be sold for duties; otherwise, the owner, importer, or consignee, by merely refusing or omitting to come forward and enter the croods on im portation, could have them depoaited in public store, and the United States kept out of the duties for the space of nine months. This is deemed to be contrary to the in tention and policy of the law, and cannot be sanctioned. Unclaimod goods referred to in the act are considered to be such, whei'e the owner, importer or consignee fails to proclaim himself at the custom house at the time of the entry of the vessel, or before her carge ia dis charged. All such goods must be lodged in the public stores, there to remain for the period of sixty or nirfety days, as the case may be, with the exception of those of a perishable nature, as provided in the law; and at the expiration of these periods respectively, said goods are tone sold, and the proceeds disposed of in the manner prescribed in the section referred to. Interest, in all such cases, is chargeable from the date ef the entry of the vessel in which it is imported. The portion of goods remaining after sale for the du ties under the 13tn section, must do returned to the pub lic stores, there to remain until claimed or sold for stor age. Such sales for storage are, as usual, to be made periodically, viz., at the expiration of nine months. The public sales of goods under the 13th and 13th sec tions, should be made within the first thirty days suc ceeding the expiration of the periods before referred to, and due notice of such sales must be published in two or more of the public newspapers having the most exten sive circulation at your port, daily, for the spare often days prior to the sale. 1 am, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Signed, R.

They then tied him fast to an easy chair, and left, and had not been seen when the WarKagle passed down on Saturday morning. They obtained about $600 in Misaouri paper. One of the ! persons was known to Col. Davenport by the name of , Budd, and had been prowling about Reck island with the others for four or Ave weeks. The Colonel lived until 0 P.

After no inconsiderable travel- ?lier the annexa tionof Texas ? after (lie " unquestionable right" of the inaugural, and the proposed compromise to the 49th parallel by Mr. Buchanan ? alter the certain con viction, notwithstanding that the plantations of Un cle Sam are soon to occupy the habitable continent of North America, the sell-evident deduction is in evitable, that " this is a great country, air, a great country." Resolved to hazard for one blessed Sabbath an escape from the dust and torrid hsat ol Pennsylva nia Avenue, for the se*-breexea and salt prater, this fine Saturday evening finds your, memorialist at the Piney Point Pavilion, near the;4ebouchure of the Potomac into Chesapeake Bay. Left Washington at 9 A. M. in ill? commodious and fast-moving steamer Osceola, Cajrt James Mitchell, an olaisaTt, used to the water from a boy. The Potomac river at Washington, a hundred mi es from the bay, is one and a qiMMer miles wide, at Alexandria near two miles, gradually widening to its mouth, where, from shore m shore, it is some seven miles and a quarter. It ts certainly one of the most splendid rivers on th?f continent, abound ing. as it does, in oysters, herrings, and canvass back ducks. The first point below Alexandria worthy of note is Port Washington, on the Man-land shore, a forti fication looking down into the channel of the river, and properly armed and defended, capable of resist ing the passage of a fleet of fifty steamerB with Paixham gruns. In 1814, however, it was blown up nnd abandoned at the approach of the ascending British fleet, without the discharge of a single gun; a most inglorious transaction in any emergency. ? But it would not be done ag-iiri, let John Bull make up his mind to that. About a mile lower down, on tne heights, on the opposite or Virginia shore, stands the sacred mansion of Pater Patria:. God bless him. Mount Vernon is a most beautiful site for such n residence. A grove of oaks and other forest trees clothes the front of the hill up to the house, where, upon the summit, immediately fronting the edifice, a line of six or seven aristocratic Lombardy poplars stand out in fine and striking relief above the num berless native trees around and belovr tbrm. Just as we were passing this hallowed ground, hallowed in the heart of every lover of mankind, a gentleman accidentally opened the National intelngmuer of this morning, and read the toast at a late meeting in the North of the Hon. Mr. Winthrop, of Massa chusetts, a toast which does honor to the man and to the State, to wit ? Substantially, that however our country may be bounded, (referring to die annexa tion of Texas, which he had *o strongly resisted,) it is still our country, and is therefore sacred in all our hearts, and should be defended by all our hands. ? Why, sir, the majestic and august figure of Wash ington, appeared in the mind s eye to be visible among the trees of Mount Vernon, bowing in appro bation of the sentiment. Near diis place a broad creek puts in to the river Irom the Maryland side, rejoicing in the euphonious appellative of Piscata way, which, being interpreted from the Indian ver nacular, signifies, we presusie, the river of ducks. ? The next point below is the White House, the site of which, and the contigious lands for miles along the river, adjoining the binds of Washington, be longed to Lord .Fairfax. Here is the spot where Commodore Porter gave Up- British fleet, in 1814, snoh a peppering as they defended with their spoils from Alexandria. Gen. Mason's lands follow next below. The river continues widening, and wherever a creek puts in on either aide, a urge bay haa been formea.giving constantly to the stream the aspect of a broad and picturesque lake. The Virginia shore, nearly the extent of one hundred miles, is bold ana picturesque, with ' frequent princely mansions, gray with age, the relics of the ancient regime, invaria bly flanked with a line of tall and artstocratic pop lars. Half a dozen of these homesteads of the old aristocracy of Virginia are at some points visible to the view, strikingly dittingui, though from three to five miles apart, from the groups of poplars along the heights. The Maryland shore is fiat and mo notonous, poor as Job's turkey, the lands having been exhausted fifty years ago, from the cultivation of tobacco [Pause a bit, the ladiel are streaming in the water, and common gallantry demands that we should go down and see what's the matter. The squall has blown over, and.no lives lost. Far more comfortable communing with the- millions of read ers of the Herald, than rolling in the salt, surf and sand.] Shores on both side*, lined with fishing booths and shanties. Here and there, along the fiat, sandy coast of Maryland, is a half wigwam and half cabin, where a large family is slowly starvingto death, until the return of the fishing season. The fact is, in Maryland particularly, but also in Virginia, along the whole length of the Potomac, we want an infu sion of northern men, northern industry, and north ern skill, in the resuscitation of the worn out soil. Add these are all that is wanted to redeem the two States. We have endless deposits of marl, a fair climate, a soil easy of cultivation ; but we have not the industry, the system and the economy of the north. From Alexandria to Chesapeake Bay, one hundred miles along thf oldest settled region in the Union, and on the snoaM of one of the most magni ficent rivers in the world, there is not a single town, village, nor even a hamlet of half a dozen houses. You see nothing of human energy ? except the ruins of a past age ? a waste ? a wilderness, | grown up on the foundations of old tobacco fields. 1 fellow naked bankst bare fields, tumble down houses, and 6tunted pines are the peculiar features of the scenery on the Maryland shore, and to a greater extent than is perceptible on the hills in Virginia. We have room for your Northern msn, and now that there is an opening from the annexation of Texas for the transfer , of our slaves, we shall still have more and more inducements to offer to a new substantial white colonization of the old soil, to fill up the vacuum created by the drainage of the West upon our native white population. This is a sugges tion which will ,one day, era long, be fulfilled with the fidelity ot a prophecy, and we nope to li to see it. Piney Point Pavilion is situated near mouth of the Potomac rivdr, vHilch i here full seven miles wide, and salt as- the bay of New York. The Pa vilion is on a rock, point of land, deriving its name from the pines which gi ow so densely in the neighborhood. The buildings present a regular un broken front of five hundred feet of two stories, with a colonnade and gallery tunning the whole length, shaded bv a thrifty growth of China trees, willows, ttec. The beach is not more than 50 yards from the buildings. The other fixtures usual at watering places, bar, ballroom, bathing houses, tec., it is not necessary to describe. Oysters abound iu these regions, and the finest of soft erabs, and Halt water fish. It is rare sport to see a great strad dle-legged crab sidling up to a bacon rind tied to a string, and his peculiar confusion to find that a net has been put under him, and that he is tossed into the sand beforf hb can say Jack Robinson. We have now many visitors at the Point, chiefly from Washington, from which place it is only half a day's steaming. Bloody Astray at Indianapolis. ? We find the following in the Indtanapolit Sentinel of the 0th instant On the afternoon of yesterday, the 4th, an af fray occurred in this city between a negro aad tome whites, in which the negro was Anally killed outright. The name of the negro is said to be John Tucker, about forty-five yoari old, and, previous to this incident, he is said te have been of a quiet and inoffensive disposition. He was, we sre told, formerly a slave In Kentucky, but many years ago honorably obtained freedom, and came to this vicinity, lie had been emplojed on the farm of postmaster ltendei ton for leveral years, up te the time of his death. On the complsiut of two respectable citizens, Nicho ls* Wood, or as commonly csdled, Nick Wood, was ar rested on the charge of having committed this fatal act. The negro defended himself wits desperate determi nation; clabs were used, aud stones and brick bets Hew thick as hail. Wood's right eye was bunged early in the affray, but the person who was most seriously in jured, and narrowly escaped with life, was Kdward Da vis, usually a very quiet perron, who received a severe, though not dangerous ent in the side of his head from a brickbat, said to have been hurled by the negro, while making a retreating fight up Illinois street, when he was immediately lulled. The principal wounds received by the negro were ap parently those en his head. There was a severe one, perhaps the severest, over the right frontal region of the skull, probably made by a club; another on the back of the head; a large gash on the top of the froat head a lit tle to the left ; a hole on the rignt cheek below the right corner of the eye, aad the jawbone fractured; atole cut through the left eer, and several smaller wounds. It was a horrible spectacle. P. 8. Since the above was written, it is ststed that a wiit has been issued for the arrest ef William Bslsnger, on a charge of participating in the afi'ray; but that he has not yet been arrested. A more careful examination by physicians to-day (Sat urday,) proves, that Tucker's skufl was fractured the whole length. The blow which caused it would have feUed aa ox. JT ' : Vicksburb, July 1, 1846. State of Things in Viektbvrg. This city is very healthy, and our mechanics are (ail who are willing to work) very busy. We hare, I believe, between three and four thousand inhabi tants, and within the past year there hare been finish ed sixteen very line brick stores, two stories high, and they are occupied by merchants who are bu siness men. There are seven more brick build inap now finishing, to be like the rest, and one is to bn three stories nigh ; and take the whole twenty- three brick buildings together, they cannot be surpassed for beauty, convenience ana architecture in the goodly city of Old Gotham. Our merchants have all done a good safe busi ness, and some of them are in your city purchasing for the fall trade ; whilst others are on their way, and in a few days the balance will follow for the same purpose ? of filling up their new stores with fine staple and fancy goods. I perceive by the last New York Weekly Nem an extract taken from the Cciutituticnalut, which states that our city is sickly, deaths and dead bodies in the streets, that never occurred, and murders that never hap|?ned, which the author knew to be false when lie penned it. A healthier and better regula ted city 18 not on the great father of waters. As for murders and other crimes there are less here than any where else. We have a police who attend to tneir duty, and let a villain but ehow his face among us, and our (Mays) Sana George will watch him close enough. Should he have committed a crime, here or any where else, he will not escape. Terrible Fire at Matamzas ? Loss Estimated at Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars ?We have the detail* of a great fire in Mataniaa that happened on the 36th ult The following we translate from Lu luvor?,a Matanzas paper of the 27th it appear* that a terete calamity ha* befallen the rich city of Matanzas. At s; o'clock, A. M., the bell* of the Tamil Church announ ced that the richest part of the city v i? seized by the (lame*. In fact, the lire had bunt out, m we are informed in a carpenter'* (hop, in the "Marina," where a large col lection ot timber supplied abundance of fuel to the flame. The fire immediately extended to the adjacent building* , which were all of wood, and of *uch age a* to be highly combuitible, so that the conflagration extended rapidly toward* the Koyal C ustemH?u*o,on the opposite comer, and to the houte of Don LBartoleme de la Mater, which wai *oon seized by the devouring element, threatening to consume the whole town. It i* three o'clock in the afternoon, and we have just lett the scene of the catas trophe ; and while the ruins of the edifice* of the whole Marina are consuming, the principal block and another adjoining it, have disappeared. A great part of the con tiguous blocks in the West have also been destroyed in part. We may truly say that what has been the general depot of the great part of the commercial wealth of theii' city, has now been made a prey to the flames. The losie* have been incalculable, and coniternation so great that the (treet* wore blocked up with men, wo men and children flying for their live* from the flame*. The splendid house of Don Vincente de J unco has been destroyed. The fire had hardly commenced when we had the satisfaction of seeing all the authorities of the town upon the spot, to whose exertions it is owing that the losses have not been more extensive. The Diario says the fire has destroyed two entire square* r.nd a third part of two more, and the loss in merchandize, houses, lie., will, in its opinion, be two millions of dollars. There was entire order throughout the fire. Many iiersons were injured. The Aurora describes the calamity, and compares it with the hurricanes, &c. The fire bells, we are told, ran for six hours, and the artillery omployed in battering down the houses, the thick imoke that obicured the *ky , the crowd* of flying inhabitant*, and the heape of furni ture and rood*, with the movement of the troop*, formed a heart (tokening picture.

Fatal Accident at Ska. ? On Saturday after noon, during the thunder Btorm, the brigOraloo.Capt. Kamum, of Damariscotta, (from Boston, Friday, P. M.) was knocked down. She was at the time aboat half way between Seguin and Cape Elizabeth. 8he was nearly light, and had seven female passengers and two children? all of whom were in the cabin at the time of the disaster. Their name* were, Mrs. Ford and child, wife of Dr. Ford, of Damariacotta ; Mra. Bates and child, of Boston : Mra. Dnnbar, of Nobleborough ; Patience and Abigail Montgomery, and Abigail Coomb*, all of Da mariscotta ; and another lady, whose nan e and place of reiidence at* not reccollected. The O. wai in company with the echooner Albion," of Damariicotta, and Debo rah of New Tedford, which veisel* escaped any damage, and immedivdly came to the assistance of the O. It be ing evident l y the noise* in the cabin that the passen ger* were alivo. hole* were cnt in the deck, and all the paisengers drawn from their perilous (position but Mrs. Dnnbar, Mr*. Ford and child; Mrs. Bates' child, a babe of three months, wa* withdrawn at the same time, but was dead. The mother says she was on one side of the cabin dressing her hair, and her child lying in the berth on the other, at the moment, and she could not get it to save it. These five passengers having been saved, they were taken on board the schooner Albion, and she proceeded on her way to D. The boats of the O. having been swamped, the crew oi the Deborah still remained about her, to render what assistance they could, and to get the bodies. Having remained three hours, they were just leaving, when one of them thought he heanl a noise in the cabin, and another effort was induced, when having cut through two bulwarks, the wife of Dr. Ford and her boy, eight years old, were found to be alive, and rescu ed. The body of Mrs. Dunbar was also found, which composed all the passengers. The salvation of Mrs. Ford was fruly wonderful. She and her son were three hours in that cabin, almost buried in water. In talking with some friends before she sailed, they narrated how a woman was saved in similar circumstances a year^or two since in a Hhigham packet, and it gave ber courage during all those, to her interminable three hours, to struggle for life. Her head having risen between the heavy beams of the cabin roof, she was left a brea thing place, free from the water that filled the cabin. Having fortunately also secured a firkin cover, she got it under her feet, which just raised her mouth above the water. With one hand she held the boy and with the other kept up a knocking with a mustard box against the roof of the cabin, lacerating her hand badly the mean time. For three hours, which to her were an eternity, did she cling to her boy and to life, till the dull ticking of her feeble tocsin of alarm fell on the oar of her rescu ers as they were about abandoning their noble efforts. It was by the merest accident that she left behind her her little girl at Cambridgeport, and muoh against her will at the time. But her change* of purpose saved it* life. On Sunday forenoon the wreck was discovered from this city aud preparations made to send help. The cutter attempted to get out, bnt for want of a breeze could not lucceed. In one hour, the propellor, General Warren had (team on her and was on her way. She found the wreck twenty-one miles from the city, aud made fast at six o'clock. At half past three this morning got her into the harbor. Mrs. ford will leave at eight this morning, for her homo, to contradict, by her pre sence, the fearful news that has goao before, of her death. Her appearance will be like the resurrection of one from the gra rt.? Portland ,'lrgut, July 14. From Sandwich Islands. ?
