Tho Milwaukie Daily American, edited by
Mr. A. W ellinotom .Hart, a member of the
Jewish persuasion, makes a strong complaint
of the’manner in which, by the late treaty with
Switzerland, the'religious faith of American
Jewish citizens is placed under a ban. It says:
“ Much' exoitement ‘ throughout tho
Union amongst’ the Jewish cititens in consequence
of the first article of this treaty clashing with
their religious liberty. , The history of. this treaty
is, that about 1850 the Hon. Dudley Manu, then
our Minister to Switzerland, drew up the draft of
a treaty which tho Jews discovered proscribed
them from Imindnitles enjoyed by their Chris
tian brethren. The. late AI. .M. Noah,iOf New
York, addressed Mr. Webster, the . Secretary of
State, on the subject, and on his
tations, booked by thoso' of tho Swiss Jowish
merchants' residing in Amoriea, he authorised the
rejection of the treaty, and the mattet dropped.
During the Administration of. General Pierce tho
subject of a treaty was again agitated, and Mr.
Fay, bur Minister, drafted it treaty, the vefy first
article of which contained tho olause, which is not
only Obnoxious to the Domocr&oy and the country,
but is mischievous, inasmuch as this precedent
established by the Swiss Confefioration may be
followed by similar sots on the part of Prussia,
Russia, or’Spain, where Jews enjoy but limited
privileges; and where tho opportunity would avail
to follow out Swiss proscription as endorsed by
the United States." ;
The first sentence of the treaty runs tlms:
« The citizens of the United States of America
and the citizens of Switzerland shall bo admit
ted and treated upon a footing of reciprocal
equality in the two countries, where such ad
mission and treatment shall not conflict with
<Jie Consfttafion or fcgtilprbumons, as well fed
eral as-State and. cantonal, of the contracting
parlies,” The offensive operation is in this
wise—the Canton of St. Gall actually has a
statute prohibiting & Jew from sleeping within
its limits; Therefore, if a Jew happens to bo
in that locality towards dusk, he must cross
over into Austria to get a bed I
Mr. De Luze, Swiss consul at Mew York-,
bfliug.applie4 to oft the subject, could, only
say that there ..was- not in the- treaty «a
single word against the; American.’citizens of
; the Israelitish'persnasion-;” but; he'adds, each
’Oaiitbir isatevereigu State, u as well as the
■several States of Sie, American Union, and
.have each the right to, make such Jaws as they
think proper to make; and I believo that in
-most of them the Israelites have not the same
rights as the Christians. But of that the
Americans have no more, right ,to complain
than the Swiss aliens residing in the United
States, where, in many States, they have not
the right to hold real estate, and are excluded
of some other privileges.”
Mr. DeLuze argues feebly. No Swiss is
deprived of the rights of citizenship in Amer
ica, or of the protection of the law, on account
of his religion.
The Rev. M. Mayer, a Jewish pastor at
Charleston, lias also declared against the
operation of this treaty, and instances a law
in Basle, wbfch enacts that “ No Jew , without
exception , is permitted to settle , to carry on
commerce , trade, or any handicraft in the
Catiton of Basleland.” He then proceeds to
give an instance of the working oi this law,
notwithstanding the treaty. .He says;
“A Mr. Godman, of New York, intending to
establish a business in La Chauxdeford, petitioned
the Cantonal administration for permission, basing
hU claims upon his ohameter as a citizen of tho
United States, which he established according to
Art. V. of tho treaty. His petition wasspeedily and
peremptorily refused, on the ground that he was a
Jew. Air. G. 1 appealed to our representative at
Berne for protection; whioh ho claimed by virtue of
the treaty, and received the cold and humiliating
answer. ‘ that said treaty does not inolude tho
Jewish citizens of the United States.' ”
Tho treaty in question was signed by Presi
dent Pikbok, on November 9, 1850. But, as
already noticed, Mr. Webster's attention was
drawn to it long before. Mr. Hart adds:
“It is said that Mr. Webster unswereil a dele
gation, that bo was of opinion that the obnoxious
clause in tho,Swiss treaty was in violation of that
paragraph in the Constitution whioh declares that
•Congress shall malto no law respecting an estab
lishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exor
cise thereof a treaty being in one sensoalaw,
and imposing disabilities on a mun on account of
his belief, amounting, in reality, to ‘an estab
lishment of religion.
Therefore, as it would seem that American
citizens are proscribed in Switzerland on ao
connt of their religion, whiio Swiss citizens in
America are not interfered with in the least, it
is pretty evident that this treaty should be
properly considered. With us all American
citizens—Catholic or Protestant—have equal
rights, and a treaty which practically abrogates
any of them on account of religion must be
looked after, to be mended. Wo do not com
plain without a sufficient cause.
The native population of Java are Mahoroe
dans. But in a small district known as the
Teng’ger mountains, there is found the rem
nant of a people who have never been con
verted to the faith of Mam., They remain the
Sole depositories of the rights and doctrines of
an ancient religion, which at one time, and
perhaps for a thousand years, prevailed
throughout tho island. These people occupy
about forty villages, scattered along a range
of hills in the neighborhood of what is called
the Sandy Sea. The site of their villages, ns
well as the construction of their houses, are
peculiar, and differ entirely from what is elsu
where observed in Java.
"While Java belonged to the English, and
that great and good mad, Sir Stamford
Raffies, was Governor of It, he visited these
people. This is what he says of tbcm:
“On being questioned regarding the adal
against adultery, theft, and other crimes, their
reply was unanimous and ready, that such
crimes were unknown to them, and that conse
quently no punishment was fixed, either by
law; or custom'; that if a man did wrong, tho
head of.tho village'chid him for it, the re
proach of which was always sufficient punish
ment fof'a man of Teng’ger. This account
of their moral character is fully confirmed by
tho Regents of the districts, under whoso au
thority they are placed, and also, by the resi
dents. They, in fact, seem to be almost
without crime, and are universally peaceable,
orderly, honest, industrious, and happy. Tboy
are. strangers to the vice of gambling and the
use of opium. - ‘ ;
“,The aggregate population is about twelve
hundred souls i and they occupy, without ex
ception, tho most beautifully rich and roman
tic spots on Java; a region in which the
thermometer is frequently as low as forty, two.
The summits and slopes of the hills are cover
ed with Alpine furs, and plants common to a
European climate flourish ip luxuriance.”
How does this compare with the state of
things under our’system of Christian civiliza
tion f it is certainly a beautiful picture to
dwell upon—something of 4 contrast to what
Is daily seen amongst ourselves, especially
when our newspapers teem with the garbage
of thQ magistrate’s office and tho records of 6iir
criminal courts. H&d’nt we better sond a mis-_
sionary to these people, not to teach byr sys
tem, 6ttf to study their’s ?

of thiß description, drawn up from personal obser

when roughly executed. This volume, howover,
is well written, and the author appears scrupu

has mado several tours through Wisconsin, aud

what are the resources of that State, and what ape

spoken of as the inland Mediterranean of America.
Before many years elapse, theborders of that L&ko

ThoMagazmes arc coming in. We have Put
nam's, for September, profusely enriched with ori
ginal engravings. The literary portion, however,
is not all original, for there is a poem called “The
Priest and the Mulberry Tree” which has the
merit of antiquity; a very flimsy sketch, “The
Husband’s Friend,” by Mark Lemon; and a plea
sant, chatty, discriminating paper on “ Lord Ches
terfield,” by Jamos Hannay. These are English,
and surely an American magazine ought to bo
wholly of home production. The original papers
are good. The best written—for it contains the
substance of a largo and costly work—is a resume
of Dr. Barth’s Travels in Africa, with over forty
engravings. Another good artiolo, “ A Magazine
a Hundred Yoars Ago/’ pleasantly reviews the
Gentleman's Magazine for*l76B. There U a cri
tique on tho comparative merits of Rachel and
Ristori, very interesting, and with somewhat less
exaggeration than New York oritics usually run
into. The Editorial Notes are excellent. There
are few book-notices so reliable as those in Putnam.
The other articles require no speoial notice—save
that a tale called “ Love in the Country,” Ailing
nearly fifteen pages, is particularly spun out and
Arthur’s Lady's Homs Magazine for September
h«fl one of the best line engravings we have seed
for somo timo. It is oallod “Hospitality- in. the
Olden Time.” Among the more
we would point out a sketch of Bayard Taylor, con
tinuation of a novel by Virginia F. Townsfrud ; and
part of a story called The Young Governess, by Mr.
Arthur. There is the usual nows of fashions, at
libme and abroad.
The eldest of all tho American Magazines, ad
dressed almost exclusively to tho gentlur'sex 1 , is
Uodey’B Lady's Book. It devotes muoh 1 space to
fashions, ornamental needle-work, and domestic re

There is some amusement in “The Tallow Family
in America”—scone Newport. A Memoir on the

The steel-plate, named “Heoland Toe,” tells'its
own story, and la well executed.
Another of these lady’s books is C. J. Peterson’s
Ladies' National Magazine. Like the rest, it
has engravings on wood and steel, and is a melange
of literature and fashions. In the prosont number,
perhaps tho most striking sketoh is “The Fire in
the Woods,” by Charles J. Peterson—brief and
Cooporish. A well-written novel, “Love’s Labor
Won,” by Mrs. Southworth, is an attractive feature
Of The Young Men's Magazine, published at

[From the Richmond (Va.) Dispatch of the 20th.)
About 6 o’clook,.yesterday afternoon, the trial
of the six negro men, Ben, Tom, George, Moore,
Edmund, ana Robert, slaves of Mr. William Bonl
waro, ohargod with assaulting, with intent to kill
their overseer, Mr. John H Dodd, on tho 27tn of
July last, was brought to a close before the county
court of Henrico, after occupying six days, and
ail tho prisoners were found- guilty! Marmnduke
Johnson,Esq., Judge W. W.Orump.nndllon. J. S.
Caskio, were assigned as the counsel of tho prisoners,
and these gentlemen never labored harder in defence
ofolients. The examination of the witnesses oc
cupied four days, and on Tuesday last tho argument
was opened by John B. Young, Esq., for tho Com
monwealth. Ho was followed in an able and eloquent
address by Mr. Johnson, and the day was dosed by
Judgo Crump, in one of his most powerful andL
telling appeals, in which he handled the evidence,'
and applied the law to, it, with a master hand.
Yesterday morning, Hon. John 3. Caskib closed for
the prisoners, in an eloquent address of three
houfir duration, reviewing the cose, and using his
best exertions in behalf of the prisoners. John B.
Young, Esq., then closed for the Commonwealth,
: answering briefly the points raised by the counsel
on tho otner side, ana expounding the l&w as ap
plicable to the case.
About six o’clock tho ouse was summoned to tho
court fordcoislon, (Messrs. Hanes, Baker, Brackett,
Dickens, and Sheppard being on tho bench,) who,
aftor rotiring and consulting, returned and render
ed a verdict that thev found tho prisoner guilty.
Ben and Tom were tnen sentenced to bo hung on
the 25th of September next, and George, Robert,
Moore, and Edmund, bcoauso of their Youth, woro
sontenued to transportation beyond tho limits of
the United States.
When Ben and Tom were ordered to stnnd up
and rocelve their sentenco, they both said thut
they had not Intondod to kill Mr. Dodd, otul had
not tried to do so. They received the sontoneo
with stoical iudifferonco, neither of them exhibit
ing the slightest omotion at learning that they
were to be hung.
The court then fixod tho value of the condemned
slaves as follows : Ben, $1,250; Tom, $850; George,
$1,200; Mooro, $1,200; Edmund, $1,200, and
Robert, $1,200.

'■ "Cape Island; Aug. 19/1857.
Induced by the reports that J the woathor was
unusually 000 l and pleasant for.summer, we paid a
visit some .few days Ajjo to the city;’but soon re
pented of our rash advenluro, when we found‘it
ninety-five degrees in the'Ahade. We returned
again on Friday to enjoy the ‘cool sea-breeze and
seventy-fivo in tho sun. Friday last, was the
warmest day of the season, according to Mr. Har
wood, who states the beat at eighty.four and a half
degrees In his register. Think of that' elghiy-four
and a half, whilst you are sweltering aniongfhe

in stating that', exclusive of tho Ledger, Th b Press
has the largest sale on Cape Island. Considering
the olasB of people who visit here, 'fwE PnßSg has
oause to bo proud of its success. In fact, the de
mand for it hoa been so great, that, .in order to
moot it, or rather, to make the supply meet the ex
pectations of the person who peddles it, he has
adopted the following Beale of prices (calculated
more for his own benefit than that of Mr. Canning
or The Press,) in this ratio; Ledger two cents,,

should be corrected at once. «
( There was a hop at Congress Hail on Saturday,

attended,and infinitely better conducted, attending
more to enjoyment than any we havo visited this
season. ;
The Norfolk brought down between three and
four hundred people on Sunday, There are still a
great mapy visiters here, who seem to enjoy them
selves more quietly than when the hotels were full,
and the general effort was to outdo in display.

Stbotuer’s Hotel, Berkley Springs, Va.
August 15, 1857.
Berkley Springs is an attractive spot. Its health
renewing waters are indeed incomparable—a very
paradise for bathing—so buoyant is the water—and
so spacious are tho baths—not mere bowls to dip
in, after the fashion used by the three men of
Gotham who wero lost at sea, but rooms filled with
the cool luxury. The happy being who laves in
this delicious water loaves the pure element at
peace with his own conscience and all mankind—
and tho glow of gratitude extends from body to
soul. I know the usual process is for body to re
flect soul, but soul reflects body, too! Alas, how
During tho past week tho heat has been
very oppressive. Tho situation of this house
is unfortunate; it is placed low in the valley,
under the mountain; tho leafy screen is grateful
to tho eye, and tempts an ascent; but the pleasure
of being ovorshadowed by so benutifal a hill is not
unalloyed. Tho valley is damp and hot and the
lovely grove adjacent the hotel, although so in
viting in appearance, is damp as a cellar. As I
write, a weloomo rain is heginniug to fall, and
many persons dispersed through the ground during
the afternoon hasten to seek sheltor. A glance at
these different groups is suggestive of material
enough to fill a chapter, called ** varieties of Ame
rican life”—so well do they depict the character
of summer places of resort. “ Young America”
forms a oonspiouous feature. There are more
than seventy children in this hotel, which
says muoh for the reputation of tho place for
salubrity.' Many fair and beautiful ’ women make
this hotel an Elyslan to ail susceptible hearts.
Every evening, arrayed in tasteful toilettes, they
form a fascinating coup d’auil in the bail room.
The usual number of titled dignitaries are here :
a plain Mi*, -tould be gentlemanly and refreshing;
for one is' ovrrwhelmed with tho sonorous repeti
tions of General, Colonel, Judge, and Hon. The
only hope of recoveryfor woak and nervous persons
isto take courage foranear inspection of these lu
minarios, whose intellectual lights shed a softer
radiance when calmly surveyed. The vicinage of
Bath must be quiet enough, exoept in the few weeks
denominated, “tbe season,” judging from a small :
.straw of mi event, which happened to us Ina drive,
wo took a day or so ago. We met.aconntry woman on
horseback, who, when she saw us immediately dis
mounted, and retreated to a fence corner. Hero,
in groat trepidation, she called out to us in implo
ring tones, “Hurry on—l’m ofeard you’ll skeer my
critter.” Dear innocent critter* that in these
days of steam wonders remaining so unsophisti
cated as to “skoor” at a carriage! Ah, “give me a
cot in the valley I love” in this sL-me corner of
these States.

The leading literary heresy of tho prosont age of
doubt is that whioh disbelieves either the actual ex
istence of Shakspeare, or, at the best, gives him
credit for nothing more than fathering the dramatic
compositions of Lord Bacon. [By the way, it is cu
rious that no such person as “Lord Bacon” ever ex
isted, for Francis Bacon was nor made a baron by his
own name, but was created a peer, os Baron of
Verulam, in 3619, when raised to the Chancellor
ship, and was made Viscount St. Alban’s in the
following year.) A paradoxical lecturer traversed
England, a few years ago, on a talking mission, to
provo that Shakspeare was a myth; and a more
plausible attempt has recently been made, by a Mr
Smith, to affiliate Shakspeare’s plays on Bacon. In
tho London newspapers is now advertised, as “Com
panion volume to every edition of Shakspoare,” a
small book, called “William Shakspeare not an
Impostor”—being a very matter-of-fact production*
with the avowed purpose of vindicating “tho di
vine Williams” (as he Is called by M. Ponsard, of
the Frenoh Academy) from recent attacks on his
works and character. Rather a needless piece of
literary work, one would think, inasmuch 53 the
world continues to believe in Shakspeare—remind
ing us/too, of the Greek rhetorician who produced
a labored eulogy on Reroutes, but was stopped, ere
he commenced reciting it,by thecurtremark, “An
eulogy on Hercules ! who ever thought of attack
ing him?”
Tho latest literary novelty, however, is the ques
tion, “Who wrote Milton’s Paradiso Lost ? ” A
literary Englishman has just given publicity to
sorao original ideas upon this head. Not as a jest,
like Archbishop Whateley’s hioehnrc sgainst the
vory existence of Napoleon Bonaparte. No; but
in serious solemnity, as a grave discovery, for
whioh ho merits (in his [ovrn opinion) the thanks of
After stating that the discovery of America by
Columbus was soon followed by the discoveries of Do
Gama and Cabot—that the discovery of one lost
work of antiquity at the revival of letters was soon
followed by the rescue of many others from the dust
and neglect of ages—that Young’s and Champol
lion’s interpretation of Egyptian hieroglyphics
opened the way for the true reading, by Losser and
Rawlinson, of tho Assyrian and Medoan inscrip
tions—the nnte-Miltonlte declares that the great
discovery, by Mr. Smith, that Bacon wrote the
plays of Shakspeare, disclosed to his mind that
“ Paradise L° B t” was written, not by Milton, but
by Milton’s master—Oliver Cuomwkm..
There is proof, he alleges, that Cromwell wrote
pootiy— thohgh his biographers huve suppressed
tho fact. “The Proteotor,” says Whitelock,
‘•would make verses with us,” (Whitelook himself,
Lord Broghill, Pieropont, Tkurloe, and Sir Charles
Sedley,) “and every ono must try his «y.”
Where, it is asked, are these verses? What
subjeot so appropriate to an assemblage of Puritan
Notables as Paradise Lost?
Cromwell died in 1658, and Paradiso Lost was
not published until 1607. [The publisher’s copy,
right contraot, giving five pounds for the manu
script, was lo n g in possession ot Rogers, tho poet,
and was purchased for the British Museum, at the
sale of his effocts iu 1856.) Tho theory is, that
Cromwell, having written Paradise Lost, placed it
in the hands of Milton, his secretary, for revision;
that it remained in his possession when tho Pro
tector died; and that Milton finally published it,
ninoteen years after, as his own. What alterations
ho mado aro not known now, but there is a tradi
tion that he originally spoko of treating the sub
ject in a dramatic form, and (says tho Cromwellian)
wo may suspect that this intention, “ and the great
variations in tho earlier editions of the ootual
poem, point to the samo conclusion, that Milton
was (hoeditor, not the author of Paradise Lost”
u, suspicion lightly grounded, many will think,
inasmuch ns making material changes'in a great
epio poom would seem to indicate the author
rathor than the editor.

Why did Milton publish his patron’s poem under
his own name ? The answer is, that “ the age, Whioh
had treated the bodily of she Protector with
, ignominy would have treated the literary remains,
il known os snob, with still greater Contempt.”
Milton would'feel the nftcesrity for the
true airthotahip with peculiar keenness,'because he

He who had shattered “ Ikon B&silike,” he Vfbo had

than Bacon will be allowed to wear tho laurelled
crown won by Shakspewe. There is a fashion of
doubting almost ondoubtable authorship. “Garth,”
says the wit, “ Did not write his own Dispensary;”

on a charge of high treason in the Tower 'of Lon*
don—-that Pat O’Kelly, of Cork, and not R. H.
Wilde, of Hew Orleans, wrote “My Life is like the
Summer Rose V—that Charles Wolfe did not write
bis lines " On the Burial of Sir John Moore”—and
that the Waverly Hovels were composed, not by
Walter Scott, but by his brother Thomas. ‘
Cromwell, who took three kingdoms (and a
head} from Charles Stuart, will scarcely take from
John Milton, one hundred and ninety years after
date, the credit of* having written Paradise Lost.

[For The Prese.J
Ho one can read Hugh Miller’s “Testimonyof
tho Hocks” without perceiving that God himself
has recorded upon hta works the record of their
creation, and that that reoord corresponds with the
Mosaic record, when properly understood:—“Of the
period during which light was created; of the pe
riod during whloh a firmament was made to sepa
rate the waters from the waters, or of the period
during which the two great lights of the earth,
With the other heavenly bodies,'became visible
from the earth’s surface, we need expect to find no
record in ‘The Rocks.’ ” The geologist expects to
find the record of only three of the sixdaysof crea
tion written in hieroglyphics on the rocks.. “AU
geologists agree that the vast geological scale natu
rally divides into three great parts: the Paleao
foie, or oldest fossiliferous division; the secondary,
or middle fossiliferous division, and the tertiary or
}ateat fossiliferoos division. In the first we find
corals, crustaceans, molluscs, fishes, and in its
later formations a few reptiles. That which;
chiefly distinguishes this from all other periods-)
{was its gorgeous flora. It was emphatically this
period of plants, or, as the Holy Record, has it, “iff
herbs yielding seed after their.kind.” Ic*oo
other age did the world, ever witness such e flora,;
The youth of the earth , was peculiarly a green,
and umbrageous youth; a youth of dark
and tangled forests, of huge pines 'and'state
ly urancarians, of the reed-like catamite, the
{tall tree-fern, tho sculptured Bigtilanh,-and the’
hirsute lepidodeudron. Of this extraordinary
nge ,of plants we have our cheorftil re*
membranes and witnesses in the flames that’ War

long dusky trains that, with shriek and snort,
hpoed, dart-like, athwart our landscapes, and in the
{great cloud-enveloped vessels that darken our
{waves and rush in foam over ocean bnd sea. The
.geologio evidence is so complete as to be patent to
all that the first great period of organized being
; .was, as described in the Mosaio record, peculiarly
a period of herbs and trees “yielding seed after
their kind.”
The secondary, division or period possessed its
herbs and plants, but they were greatly less
luxuriant and conspicuous in character than their
'predecessors, and no longer formed the prominent
trait or feature of tbo creation to which they be*
longed.' But the grand existences of the age—the
existences in which it excelled every other crea
tion, earlier or-later—were its huge creeping
things, its enormous monsters of the deep; and,
as shown by the impressions of their footprints
stamped upon the rocks, Its gigantic birds. It 3
wonderful whales, not, however, as now, of the
'mamalian, but of the rephon class, ichthyosaurs,
plerios&urs, and cetiosaurs, must have tempested the
; deep. Its creeping lizards and crocodiles, some of
which more than rivalled the existing elephant in
height, and greatly more than rivalled him in bulk,
must have crowded the plains or haunted by myriads
the rivors of the period. In meet aceonlanco with
the fact, we find that the second Mosaic period was
the period in whioh Ood created the fowl, that
flieth above the earth, with moving or creeping
creatures, bpth in the waters and on the land.
The tertiary period had also its prominent class
of existences. Its beasts of the field were by far
the most wonderfully developed, both in size and
numbers, that ever appeared upon earth. Its
mammoths and its mastodons, its rhinoceri and
hippopotami, its enormous dinotherium and coloa
sal nogatberium, greatly more than equnlledin bulk
the largest animals of the present time, and vastly
exceeded them in number. The remoinsof oneof its
elephants are still so abundant amid the frozen
wastes of Siberia, that ivory quarries have been
wrought among their bones for more than a hun
dred years- Grand, indeed, was the fauner of the
British islands in those early days. Tigers as
large again as the biggest Asiatic species larked
in the anoient thickets ; elephants of nearly twice
the bulk of the largest that now exist in Africa or
Ceylon roamed in herds; at least two species of
rhinoceros forced their way through the primeval
forests; and the lakes and rivers were tenanted
by hippopotami as bulky, and with as great tusks,
as those of Africa. Themassivecave-bear and largo
cave-hyena belonged to the some formidable group,
with at least two species of great oxen, a horse
of smaller size, and an elk that stood ten feet
four inches in height. Truly this tertiary age—
this third andlast of the great geologio periods—
was peculiarly the age of great 14 beasts of
the earth after their kind, and of cattle after
their kind.” “ And after groat cattle and
beasts of the earth had in due order succeeded in
animate plants, sea monsters, and moving crea
tures that had life, the moral agent now enters upon
the scene. Previous to his appearance on earth,
each succeeding elevation in the long upward
march had been a result of cruation. The creative
fiat went forth, and responsible immortal man came
into existence. God's seventh day’s work is the
work of Redemption.

The,establishment of a Sober House' or Hospital,
for the euro of habitual drunkards, has frequently
been urged by some of tho newspapers. Tho fol

late Dr. Benjamin Rush, one of the medical Pro

“The use of strong drink is at first the effeefcof
free agency. Fromnabit it takes place from ne

an habitual drunkard, occurred some years age in
Philadelphia. When strongly,urged by one oThis
