    Remarkable Forccrv. Ri i?
talc not always Iftoal Sccurif v.
A few days since a, homespun, farmer
looking man, who gave his name as James
nuason appeared in Parma, in this Coun
ty. He represented hi
Dutchess County," New York, where he
had recently sold his farm, and claimed
to he in search of a new Innnfinn in ii,a
section of the country. Hudson made the
acquaintance ot Mr. Lewis Warner, ex
amined his farm, which contained 128
acres, and agreed to purchase it for 85,
000. He procured from Mr. Warner
a written agreement to this effect, singed
by him j and also the deed which gave
him (Warner) title, as he said, for the
purpose oi tamng it to Cleveland and ex
amining the title. Hudson then went to
Mr. Cogswell, Justice of the Peace in Par
ma, and under pretence of wishing to
...w uU uuomws, uutainea ms ad
dress, in his own handwriting
Thus havincr in his nossessinn w,rnr'o
deed, and the signatures of Warner's and
vogswen, Hudson came to Cleveland, and
drew up a deed convevino- im lnnd to Mm.
self, to which he forged the signature of
n airner as aonor, and ot Cogswell as cer
tifying justice, adding, for form's sake,
muse oi iwo witnesses.
The date of the deed was May 9. and
mo same aay it was nled m the Ilecor
der's office for record.
With this apparently indisputable evi
dence of title to the land. Hnd snn an
plied to Thomas Bolton, Esq., of this city,
for a loan of 81,500, offering mortgage
security upon the farm. Mr. Bolton con
sented to loan him the amount for four
years, at 10 per cent, annual intarnsf..
and a mortgage was drawn up, which
Hudson signed and took with him to Par
ma to procure the signature of his wife.
On Tuesday he presented the mortgage,
propeny signed and acknowledged the
signatures of his wife, the justice and one
witnesses, forgeries, of course and re
ceived the 81,500 from Mr. Bolton.
Yesterday, 17th, Mr. Warner came to
tnc city, and inquired lor Hudson, saying
ne naa agreed to sell mm nis farm, and
he thought it time the papers were execu
ted. Mectincr with Mr. Bolton, the facts
stated above were ascertained, and Mr.
Warner pronounced the deed a forgery.
So shrewed and perfectly executed a
piece of rascality has not recently occured
in this vicinitv : and the forger having a
week the start of law. officers and wht
i o
ning, it is but barely possible that he will
be overtaken by either of them. Clcvc-
wna ucraid, may lo.
Ilogs and Whiskey,
The Cincinnati Atlas has the following
paragraphs :
" The largest distillery in the United
States is at .New Richmond, Ohio, on the
river about twenty miles above Cincinnati
There are two distilleries in the town.
At the larger there are now made 125
barrels of whiskey per day ; at the other
SO that is, New Richmond furnishes the
world 205 barrels of whiskey every day,
or about 70,000 barrels per annum. In
the large distillery there are now 9,000
hogs; in the other ,000. These hogs
are changed three times a year, which
makes 27,000 from one, and 21,000 from
the other, or 43,000 hogs from New Rich
mond annually. At certain seasons of
the year, from the character of their food,
or from other causes, epidemics prevail
among the hogs. Last winter over 3000
died at the two distilleries. These hogs
are not a dead loss ; their carcasses are
rendered into lard oil. The business of
the manufactory, at which this " saving
process" goes on, amounted the last six
months to over 85000. Last year 450
barrels of lard were made of hogs that
died in the pens.
In the larger distillery there are now
in store about 100,900 bushels of grain.
It is a spot as inviting to great rats as ev
er was California or Australia to gold
loving men. The trade between Cincinnati
and New Richmond supports a steamer,
which makes daily trips down and back.
The freight-is mainly hogs and whiskey.
But a considerable business is done, also,
in flour, of which at the two distilleries
there are ground every day about 100
. JJj3 There is a child in Pairhaven
Mass., 15 months old, which is said to
have eight figgers upon, one hand.
JVj3 Green corn and cucumbers, from
Charleston, are selling in New York at
six dollars per dozen.

sons know the danger and folly of trusting
their work to the ignorant as well as the
traveling dentist It matters not how much
experience a person may have, he is liable to
lave some failures out ot a number or cases,
and if the dentist lives at a distance, it is fre
quently put off until it is too late to save the
tooth or teeth as it may De, otherwise tne in
convenience and trouble ot going so far.
Hence the necessity of obtaining the services

Stroudsburg, March 24, 1853.
Whatever concerns the happiness and
health of a people is at all times of the most
valuable importance. I take it for granted
that every person will do all in their power,
to save the lives .ot their children, and that
every person will endeavor to promote their
own health at all sacrifices. I feel it to be
my duty to solmenly assure you that worms,
according to the bpinion of the most cele
brated Physicians, are the primary causes
of a large majority of diseases to which
children and adults are liable; if you have
an appetite continually chargeable from one
kind of food to another, Bad Breath, Pain
in the Stomach, Picking at the Nose, Hard
ness and Fullness ol the Bellevj Dry Cough,
Slow Fever, Pulse Irregular remember
that all these denote worms, and you should
at once apply the remedy:
Hobensack'swonn Syrup.
An article founded upon Scientific Princi
ples, compounded with purely vegetable sub
stances, being perfectly safe when taken, &
can be given to the most tender Infant with
decided beneficial effect, where Boicel Com
plaints and Diaricza have made them weak
and debilitated, the Ionic properties of my
orm byrup are such, that it stands with,
out an equal in the catalogue of medicines,
in giving tone and strength to the Stornache
which makes it an Infallible remedy for
those afflicted with Despepsia, the aston
ishing cures performed by this Syrup after
Physicians have failed, is the best evidence
of its superior efficacy over all others.
The Tape Worm !
This is the most difficult Worm to des
troy of all that infest the human system.
It grows to an almost Indefinite length, be
coming so coiled and fastened in the Intes
tines and Stomach affecting the health so
sadly as to cause St. Vitus Dance, Fits,&c.
that those afflicted seldom if ever suspect
that it is Tcpe Worm hastening them to an
early grave. In order to destroy this Worm
a very energetic treatment must be pursued,
it would therefore be proper to take 6 or 8
of my Liver Pills so as to remove all ob
structions, that the Worm Syrup may act
direct upon the Worm which must be taken
in doses of 2 Table spoon's full 3 times a
day, these directions followed, have never
been known to fail in curing the most obsti
nate case of Tape Worm.
Hobensack's ILiver a'llls.
No part of man is more liable to disease
tan the Liver, it serving as a filteier to
purify the blood, or giving the proper secre
tion to the bile; so that any wrong action of
the Liver affects the other important parts
of the system, and results variously, in Liv
er Complaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, &c.
We should, therefore, watch every symptom
that might indicate a wrong action of the
Liver. Ihese J'uls being composed of
Roots and Plants furnished by nature to heal
the sick: Namely 1st, An Expectorant,
which augments the secretion from the Pul
monary mucus rnembiane, or promotes the
discharge of secreted matter. 2d, An Al
terative, which charges in some explicable
and insensible manner, the certain morbid
action of the system. 3d, A Tonic, which
gives tone and strength to the nervous sys
tem, renewing health and vigor to all parts,
of the body. 4th, A Cathartic, which acts
in perfect harmony with the other ingredi
ents, and operating on the Bowels, and ex
pelling the whole mas3 of corrupt and vitia
ted matter, and purifying the Blood, which
destroys disease and restores health.
To e m a l e s .
You will find these Pills an invaluable
medicine in many complaints to which you
are subject. In obstructions either total or
partial, they have been found of inestimable
benefit, restoring their fractiontal arrange
ments to a healthy action, purifying the
blood and other fluids so effectually to put
to flisht all complaints which may arise
from female irregularities, as head ache,
giddnesB, dimness of sight, pain in the side,
back, &c.

Cure of Consumption,
Liver Complaint, Colds, Coughs, Asthma,
Bronchitis, and all Throat and Lung Com
plaints. I have published a brief work on Consum
ption, which contains an invaluable recipe
for the cure of these prevalent diseases, even
in their worst stages, when friends and phy
sicians have given up all hope. The Lung
balsam prescribed in this work Cures withou
the expensive aid of physicians or injurious
use of patent medicines. In adopting this Sys
tem of Cure the patient knows tvhat he is us
ing knows that he is not shortenning" his
pays by the use of anodynes or mercurials,
which may seem to Relieve but never Cure,
He knows when using this Life-saving Bal
sam, that he is taking mild, pleasant, efrica
cious remedies, such as Nature prescribes
for the ills her children suffer. The ingredi
ents composing this Lung Balsam are obtain
able (cheaply too,) wherever consumption
exists, proving that Every ill has its antidotet
Consumptive patients may Rely on thisreceip.
(all Lung Complaints are removed by its
use) I'would not attach my name to it, had
I doubt of its efficacy. The directions for
preparing and using the Balsam are perfectly
plain. 1 prefer selling the Recipe to making"
the Balsam, as it enables people to Make
their own Medicine at a Trifling Cost. 1 Wil
impart the secret of making the Balsam, and
the Family right to use it, for $1, but in uo
case will I sell it for speculating purposes.
Proof of its Goodness.

to let you know what effect your preparation
of Medicine for Consumption and other dis

days my wife gained in weight 3 lbs, relieved
her cough, changed her countenance, and all

not be willing to do without it. It is a med
icine much needed in Jackson there is many
cases simular to my wife's. The Kev Mr
Blanc-hard will write you for a recipe. Res--pectfully
