rpo THE PUBLIC, and rartirularly to my forme ,
patrons of this city:—llaving retired from the
praci h., of Medicine. I may he permitted to say, that it
has tattoo Iu the lot of t ot low persons to have enjoyod
so liberal or larae a share of obstrettical practice as my
own has bee,, for the last ;30 or 40 years.

merits of his 1,1115.
Soconvenient, so efficient. and yet so safe, did I esteem
these pill.,thot for the last five years in my practice for
Ihe cure of chronic diseasea, or wito , ever name, and hose
of female 3 in port ico!or, I have used more or them than
all other medicines.

If my patient required a:;0• aperient tneilieine either

If I treated a case requiring an enttenagogue, the

I f palpitation, headache, flushed countenance, or other
difficulties, indicating a disturbance oldie circulatory
and secretory systems, annoyed my patient at the 'turn
of life,' the Wilson's pills were just the thing I wanted.
Thus, without respict to the name, a disease might

That so great a number ortlisea,ies, and sometimes ap.
parently opposite ones, in which I have used these pills,
should be clued more readily by then] than by any other
remedy, may at first seem strange and contradictory, but
why it is so Is as clear to my mind as that a great many
persons should become thirsty from us many different
causes,and yet all require that common and greatest of
blessings, water to quench their thirst.
In conclusion, it is due the reputation of the medicine
and the public, to say decidedly and unconditionally, that
the Wilson's pills are the only combination I have ever
met with In my longceurse of practice,that really pos.

Messrs. PHILLIPS & SMITH: You will

the inclosed communication taken from this -/ '

that this is one of the most lucid and fair :i_

I think every body who reads it suiff sty,
that theta must be some sinister objciel ,• ,
the part of the Transporting "Old Coefissatts 4 :51

the "Portable Boat and Truck system e ' . i
adopted by the Canal Commissioners, by
the authority of the late Legislature.
In connection with this matter, I would
mention a fact which only came to my Mars i
the other day. The Portable Boat caucus
or freighters, have authorised their agents A
to contract, and engage freights to be care -!
tied by them either east or west, at 25 cte.
per 100 lb over the Tolls.
The fact should be made known. It
speaks volumes in favor of that sy.tem and
against the old Lines.
March 13th, 1843
F thd Advocate.
PORTABLE BOATS—REDUC rom TION OF
Pellitiqns to the Legislature.
It is well known that the business on the Nen.
sykania Canals and Railroads has heretofore '
been controlled by a few wealthy and motmapoe
hzing companies of 'Fratisporteis, who have year
after year dictated such high p:icea as to have
driven a vast amount of trade from the works.—
At the the last se•siun of the Legislature, a bill
i,vaA passed authorizing , the Canal Commissioners
to place trucks on the Rail roads for the purpose
of carrying over the section or portable canal
boat., with the hope of stimulating arid Sidi
copetition on the route. Thia movement wis le
mated to be wise and judieiou-, and was - . V'
approved of by the cit izens of the State general •::::
Under this law the Canal Commissioners have
caused such trucks to be constructed, and a very
large number of suitable lariats have been built by
individuals. The result will be that wagtail have
'a heal lay and active competitiou in the carrying
trade during the coming year, and for the grit
time the capabilities of our Internal Improve•
ments will be fitirly tested.
The rates of toll for the year were announced
&short. time since, andat!theugh they are notte;
lieved to be yet sthfielently reduced on heavy
goods parsing westward, something has already
been gained and more may ba expected as cape.
rieace shall confirm the policy of- further reduc
tion., and certainly the arranegment for tie intro
ducti. n ofindividual competition has given get].
oral satisfaction. Tee large transportation lines
dreading the competition and nat being able
from the size and construction of their boatirla
avail themselves of the new system seem deter
mined to destroy it if possible. We learn that
thihy are now circulaing petitions to the Let:
islature alledgiug that the Canal Commissioners
have given an unjust and iMpraper advantage in
the matter of tolls to the sect:un beets, and asking
that the rates charged on the section boats should
be advanced or that on theirs be reduced—and in
cidentally praying for a general reduction of tolls
These petitions ate extensively signed—a great
majority of the signers being under the imptes.
sMn ino,t probably that they are mearly petition- ,
ing for a reduction of tolls. Public opinion is en-,
tirely in favor of the new mode of transportation,
ant our citizens would cheerfully sign petitions
fig giving some decided advantages to the porta
ble brats. Our objects is to urge' the necessity of
some action on this subject as the petitions alma
ded to may otherwise be construed - into an ex
pression of public sentiment.
OH a fun and Careful examination of the new
toll list we find that no advantages are given
by II e n w raiei of P .rtable Boats. instead of
Navin„ 11 just advaoinges uvzr others, as is al
d by the edednes of the new system we prove
by the :oil wing table, that goods carried in these
boats pay a Ingner toll to the commonwealth, than
if earned io the common canal boat and rail
Assuming the b .at had to be c-tfee,

els per ton or nu a boat load. $6 18
Each Section Boat pave on a trip front Phila
dePa to Pittsburgh, $6,18, and returning, the wise
sum more than is paid by the common boat.—
Each boat will muke 12 tripe in the season: and
consequently will pay 8148 32 more than the oth
er in the season.
As we have now 100 such boats on the canal.
and the difference will amount $14,832 in the year.
We chal.enge any one to point an error or ov
mission in this calculation.
It is literally and positively true that the trans.
p rter in section boats will pay more toll to the
commonwealth, than other carriers, by 34/ per
life hope the friends of individual completion
will tako proper measures to repres. nt their views
to the Jegi,l'out e without delay.
We thirOt they have much to hope for, and that
their I.6g4est nelicipatioaa will be reallzed--mo
;doubt not list wilt the increased competition and
reduced priees, the amount of business, will be in
creased to a; great an amouut, as can be done by
100 Portables over and above what was done 13114
der the old system, and which will amount io
creased tolls to the &We, tak;ng the foregoing as
a basis of calculation, namely 100 boats making
each 24 passages at 811411 to the sum of 105/73
