AWFUL COLLISION AT SEA-Loss OF A BARK
r AND ALL ON Bosom—Captain Read, of the brig
Marian Gage, at Mobile 14th ult. from New York,
reports that on the 21st October, hit. 31 10, N. long.
70 33 W. at 9i P. M. a heavy sea rolling, discov
ered a bark of 300 tons about one mile distance,
bearing down upon the starboard bow; signals
were hoisted, and every effort made to avoid a col
lision, but in vain; the brig struck the bark mid
ships with a fearful crash, carrying away from the
brig every thing forward, rendering her unmanage
able for more than an hour. The bark was cut at
the water's edge, and fell in astern of the brig, a
quarter of a mile distance ; but before Captain
, Read could render them any assistance, she went
down with all on board ! Captain Read laid to,
with the hope of saving some of the unfortunate
people, but not a trace of the wreck could be seen
the next morning. The bark was hailed two or
' three times before any answer was obtained ; and
then the confusion was so great, her name was not
distinctly understood. Capt Read thinks the name
given was the lola, the Jana, or the Viona, but he
is uncertain about it.

S. Gazette of the 24th ult. says:—The jury in the

Sunday the 13th of November, 1542, near the
corner of Sixth and Elizabeth street, came into
r court yesterday at twelve o'clock, having been out
since ten o'clock the evening previous—fourteen
hours. The verdict was—GUILTY OF MUR

was granted the prisoner's counsel until Saturday
to file reasons for a new trial, the sentence of Bris

WHERE THE Mossy soma.—The New York
Herald says—The salary paid by the Anti-Slavery
Society to James G. Birney, the " Friend of Man,"
and the Anti-Slavery candidate for President of
the United States, is $2,280 per annum, besides
travelling expenses. That paid to the intensely be
nevolent Joshua Leavitt, editor of the Emancipator,
is $l,BOO per annum, and to Henry B. Staunton
$l,OOO and his travelling expenses. Who would'nt
sympathize with the poor slave for $2,000 per an
, num? Benevolence is a good trade—a great many
ingenious persons have found it out.
Mr. Adams and Mr. Clay.
We have heretofore noticed that Mr. Clay invited
Mr. Adams to visit him at Ashland. To this invi
tation Mr. Adams refers, in the following passage of
his speech to the Kentuckians, at Covington:
"Not only have I received these invitations from
public bodies, and cities, but also from individual
citizens, among the first of whom was that great
man, your own citizen, who, during a very large
portion of my public life, and in several instances
in matters relating to your interests, has been my
associate and friend ; and the recollection of whom
brings me to acknowledge before this whole assembly,
that in all the various capacities in which I have
known him to act, whether as my assistant or asso
, elate, or as acting independently of me and in his
individual character and capacity, I have ever found
hint not only one of the ablest men whom I ever
co-operated with, but one of the most amiable and
most worthy. I have received a cordial invitation
from him to visit him at his residence."
What are They ?
The Charleston Mercury, the leading Locofoco
paper in South Carolina, says:
"We mean to support our principles, and when
we find out what principles the Democratic party
are going to support, we shall know better what
sort of fellowship there is to be between us."

T y- MEDICIHRL USER OF THE WILD CHLSOT.
—Ever since the settlement of America, Wild
Cherry has been known to possess very important
medical virtue. Every body knew this fact, but
nobody knew how to extract its essential properties.
Every mother gives Wild Cherry tea to her chil
dren for worms, for colds, and for almost every dis
ease : and adults throughout our country are in the
habit of making a compound or syrup 'of Wild
Cherry bark, and other ingredients, to be used in
spring as an antidote to complaints incident to that
changeful season. It is found by experiment that
the Wild Cherry possesses even far more import
ant qualities than was ascribed to it. For the first
stages of Consumption, Asthma, no matter how
long standing, Coughs, Liver Complaint, Arc., it is
proved to be the best medicine known to man. Dr.
Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry is a chemical ex
! tract, combined with a similar extract from Tar,
which enhances its value. Its success in curing
Pulmonary disease, in almost every stage, after our
best Physicians could do no more, has astonished
the faculty, and led them to confess that Wistar's
Balsam of Wild Cherry possesses a principle here
: tofore unknown to medical men.
