that were ever known; many troubled With ringing in

alarmed at sudden sounds, bashfulnees, with frequent
blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of mind
were cured immediately.
Dr. J. addresses all those who have injured themselves
by improper indulge ace and solitary - habits, which ruin
both body and mind, unfitting them for either business,
study, society or marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholly effects pro
duced by early habits of youth. viz: Weakness of the
Back and Limos, Pains in the Goad, Dimness a.f Sight,
Lose of Muscular Nwer, Palpitation of the heart, Dys
pepsy, Nervous Irratibil ty, Derangement of the Digestive
Functions, General Debility, Symptoms of Consumption,

to be dreaded—Loss of Memory, Confusion of Ideas, De

Setf Distrust, lcive of holitude, Timidity , &c.., are some of
the evils produced.

Who have injured themselves by a certain practice In
dulged In when alone, a habit frequently learned from
evil companions, oral school, the effects of which are
nightly felt, even when asleep, and if not cured renders
marriage Impossible, and destroys both mind and body,
should apply immediately.
What a pity that ayoung man, the hope of his coun
try, the darling of his parents, should be snatched from
all prospects and enjoyments of life, by the eenrequence
of deviating from the path of nature and indulging In a
certain secret habit. Such persons slyer, before contem
reflect theta sound mind and body are the most neces
sary requisites to promote connubial happiness. Indeed,
without these, the journey through Ilk becomes a weary
pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darkens to the view ;
the mind becomes shadowed with despair and filled with
the metancholly rall mien that the happiness of another
becomes blighted with our own.
When the mhguided and imprudent votary of pleasure
finds that he has imbibes the seeds of this painful die
ease, it too often tiepins that an tihtimed sense of shame
or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those
who, irom e intuition and respectability, can alone be
friend him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms on
this borr dliesse make their appearance, such' as ul
cerated sore throat, diseased nose, nocturnal pains in
the head and limbs, dimness of sight, deathess, nodes on
the shin bones and arms, blotches on the h ad, face and
extremities, progressing with frightful rapidity, till at
last the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
is, and the victim of this awful disease become a horrid
object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his
dreadful sufferings, by sending h m to " that Urdiscov

It has of late been under the military control

judgment of the commands of military forces

the intervention of an armed body, known as

utmost respect and deference by all persons,
under pain of severe punishment. "
All persons well disposed towards the Gov

the oath of allegiance, will receive the safe
