Some years age a suit was brought against me, on a

Jr. For reaions which I deemed satisfactory at
-thotimothe suit was brought, I resolved to resist the
tollootion of the claim of Mr. 11.0311i513 N, and took
wettest on the subject. It is, however, known to my
:::httimate friends, that I did not cmontemplate
the deb emptloyior to

'two on grounds of equity. I was is doted, however,
to give the cause entirely into tho hands of my Attor
` noy, who made a legal defence, and put in the plea
that I was a minor when the note was signed. My
friiindi well know, that at the time he conoludal ou
making that defence, I refused to saiction it, and,
steed of procuring the testimony requisite to sustain it,
I declined to proceeea, and paid tha mouay. I subjoin

- ' MR. HAMILTON'S STATEMENT'
Atthe reluest of a friend of Win. H. Smith. I state
that Ivens his Attorney in the suit of Wm. Robinson,
jr. vs Wm. H. Smith. The suit was to enforce the
payment of a note, the payment of which I believed
ought not, at that time, to have been pressed, and 1
chose to put the plaintiff en proof of everything,without
• atimittingor denying anything, necessary to entitle him
to recover. And as to the plea of infancy, I deemed it
any duty at the time to put it in, as I have in many oth
er cases, without being anxious about my client's opinion
•in reference to it. It is not unusual with myself, and
presume with other gentlemen of the bar, to put in such
• plea as will meet rho case without consulting my client
whether that plea is "non est factum," "Infancy," or
o i the Statute of Limitations." If clients are to answer
for inch acts of their Attorneys. the reputation of some
of our most distinguished public men might be tarnish
sent ed. My recollection is that Mr. Smith was not pre-'
befoee the Alderman on the day that the proof of

DUST RY."—ThiS !Mexican despot has adopted a means
of driving off foreign competition, which will be re
garded by our free trade advocates as infamous, and
will hardly receive the approval of the most ultra pro
tectionist. Hellas issued U. decree prohibiting all for
eignersexcept those naturalized in Mexico. those mar
ried to Mexican women, and those who reside in the
Republic with their families, from pursuing any retail
trade within its limits. Six months from the date of
the dectee is allowed for those not excepted to wind up
their business. Any foreigner not excepted, who, after
the expiration of the said period, shall engage or con
antic in any species of retail trade, is to forfeit his
goods, and incur a penalty equal to their value. For
eigners can have workshops in any part of the Repub

tices or workmen.

CURE FOR\VHaT IS CALLED A RUN-ROUND
ON If lIE FINGER.
That disease of the finger or the toe, which is corn
manly called a "ron-roand.' • may he easily cured by a
remedy so si mlile that persons who have not tried it arc
generallyincredolons as to its efficacy. The first sym
toms of the complaint are heat, na i l ,. sw emaz, an d red
ness at the nail. The inflamation, if not checked very
soon, round tle whole of the nail. ransioT, intense l
pain, accorn?anied by a Bath-ring, of yellow muter, ,
which, as soon as it appears, should he pn letulecier o- I
pened by a needle, not w 2itin till it has extended Ira
progress; otherwise the finger well become excessively
sore and intolerably painful and the nail will eventual
ly come off. All this may be prevented at once, if, as
soon as the swelling and inflnmation begin, the finger is
laid on flat on a table, and the nail then scratched all I
over (fir stlengthwise and then crosswise) with the sharp
point of a pair of scissors, of a penknife, so as to scratch,
up the whole surface of the nail, leaving it rough and
white. Thislittle operation will not give the slightest I
pain, and see have never known it fail in stopping the
progress of the disease, all symtoms of which will dis
appear by the next day. We have proved its efficacy
by experience, and believe that every person who has
tried it has foond it a positive cure. if, done before
matter begins to appear; aryl even then, it will generally
succeed if that part of the gathering which assumed a
yellow color is first opened with a needle, and the nail
afterwards thoroughly scratched all over with the
point of the scissorY.—Miss Leslie.
