bear in mind that their security depends entirely
upon their own encouragement of boats that have or

taken place, their almost daily occurrence, and the
thousands of lives that have already been lost, a suffi

that your lives may be secure. Ought you not therefore
to meet them with a corresponding degree of liberality,
and by your preference show that you appreciate their
laudable endeavors to stop this awful sacrifice of hu

their accommodations in other respects are equal, and

Very Cheap fat Cask!
A TRACT consisting of one hundred and forty-six
acres of timber land, situated immediately on
the Ohio river, in the State of Indiana, between Cincin
nati and Louisville, a suitable location to establish a
very profitable WOOD YARD—a great majority of
the timber being beech and poplar. It is a well known
fact that cordwood of this kind is always bought in pre
fsrenco to any other by steam boats. There is no point
on the Ohio rivet where good wood will bring a better
price. In addition to this, there is no part of the west
ern rivers navigated by so many steamers—and hence
the great demand for good cordwood. It is obvious
that this land is more valuable on account of the tim
ber, as the clearing of less than one half will more than
pay the original cost of the land. The poplar logs can
be very advantageously rafted to Louisville, where
they have always brought a good price, and are much
used for building purposes. The soil is remarkably
rich—and when cleared of its •aluable timber, will suit
in every respect for all kinds of farming purposes. The
produce of the farm, by water, is within a half of a
day's reach of two of the finest markets in the western
country, namely, Cincinnati and Louisville.
Any person wishing to make a safe and productive
investment, would do well to purchase the above de

LESSONS IN THE SPANISH, FRENCH AND
From his having made the Spanish language the
sole object of his study during a residence of two years
in Havana, there is reason to suppose that he has ac
quired a good knowledge of their language, the easiest
and most harmonious of all modern languages.
Of his competency to teach French there can be no
doubt, from the fact of his having been a clerk in a
Notary in Paris, where he hos studied law. WhatMr
Theveau here states he can prove by the Ordoanance
of the King of France and by letters from the Minister
of the Navy.
Mr Tbeveau can be seen every dal front 12 u) 1 ?
