Take Particular Notice
Dr. J. addresses all those whohaveiniured themselves
by improper indulge ~ce tied solitary habits, which rule
both body and mind, unfitting them for either business,
study, society or marri age.
These are some or the sad and. melancholly effects pro•

BACK and Limbs, Pains in the Head, Dimness bf Sight,
Lose of Musiular Power, Palpitation of the heart, Dys

singular appearance about the eyes, cough and symptoms

evil companions, or at school, the effects of which are

Whit a pity that a young man, the hope of he coun
try, the darling of his parents, should be snatched Iran
all prospects knd enjoyments of life, by the con. equence
of deviating from the path of nature and indulging in a
certain secret habit. Such persons WS; before &intern.
reflect that a sound mind and body are the most neces
sary requh nes to promote connubial happiness. Indeed,
without these, the journey through life becomes a weary
pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darkens to the view ;
the mind becomes shadowed with despair and Oiled with
the melancholly refl akin that the happiness of another
becomes blighted with our own.
Disease of Imprudence.
When the misguided and imprudent votary of pleasure

or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those

ENFORCEMENT OF THE FUGITIVE
The Recent Gunboat Action on the
Official Dispatch from Flag Officer Davis
WAEHMITON, May 17
Since yesterday eight or ten fugitive slaves
have been returned to their claimants. It is
estimated that there were in Washington re
cently about a thousand slaves, principally from
Prince George county, Maryland, adjoining this
District. At lest forty slaveholders from that
county were at the court house to-day, filing
their petitions for the reclamation of the runa
ways. In some cases as many as twenty-one
are claimed by a single person. In several
instances, after the court had issued the neces
sary writs, the marshall and his deputies were
unable to find the fugitives, who having by
tome means been informed of the judicial pro
cess, removed beyond the reach of arrest.
The following report from Capt. Davis, com

Silt :—I have the honor to inform the De

nine o'clock, the rebel squadron, consisting of
eight war clad steamers, four of which came
around the point at the bend above Fort Pillow,
and steamed gallantly up the river, fully pre
pared for a regular engagement. The vessels
of this squadron were lying at the time tied up
to the bank of the river, three on the eastern
and four on the western side, and as they were
transferred to me by Flag Officer Foote ready

Commander Stemble on the gunboat Cincin
oath'', which was the leading vessel in the line
on that of the river, followed immediately by
Commander Kelty in the gunboat Mound City,
hastened to the support of the mortar boats,
and were repeatedly struck by the enemy's
rams, and at the same time that they disabled
the enemy and drove him away, the two
leading vessels on the enemy's lines were
successfully encountered by this ship. The
boilers or steam chest of one of them exploded
by our shot and both of them were disabled.—
They, as well as the first naval vessels encoun
tered by the Cincinnati, drifted down the river.
Commander Walker informs me that he fired
a BO pound shot through the boilers of the third
of the enemy's gunboats, on the western line,
and rendere,i her, for the time being, helpless.
The action lasted during the better part oi an
hour and took place at the closest quarters.
The enemy finally retreated with haste under
the guns of Fort Pillow.
I have to call the especial attention of the War
Department to th gallantry and good conduct
exbtbited by Commanders Storable and Kelm
and Lieut. Commanding S. L. Phelps.
I regret to say - that Commander Stemble,
