abundance for the relief of those who have been
atript of every thing, except their trust in God :in
three short hours.

PAIR WARNING TO Boys.—The Chief Burgess
has given notice,that the law relative to the setting
off of fire-crackers, within the limits of our
borough, will be enforced in every instance of de
tection. This, we think, is right; and we hope
the officers in charge of the public safety, will en
force the law. If boys, large or small, wish to
show their patriotism by the firing off of fire-crack

open fields, where there will be no danger of burn.

From the Nooklk Herald
The expedition under Lieut. W. F.LvNen, of the
United States navy, authorized by Government to
explore the Dead Sea, had reached its destination
on the 23d of April, and was afloat on the sea, with
boats launched, the weather mild, and all the party
safe and well.
CIIATEACTBRIAND, in his admirable narrative of his
travels in Greece, Palestine, &c., gives us an in.
tcresting though provokingly brief account of this
great curiosity. His visit to it was about forty
years ago, when a strong guard was necessary to
protect him from the Arabs who infested its bor.
dors. He says:
• Should the Turks ever again give permission,
and should it be found practicable to convey a ves
sel from Jaffa [or Joppa] to the Dead Sea, some cu
rious discoveries would certainly be made in this
Lieut. Lynch, we believe, is the first to visit un
der the authority of a foreign Government; and,
being provided with all things necessary for a thor
ough investigation, we really expect that he will
realize M. Chatenubriand's promise of curious dis
coveries to the utmost degree of possibility, and in
scribe his name at the head of the long list of phi
losophers and tourists, ancient and modern, who
have written upon the subject.
We subjoin a few extracts front the narrative of
Chateatibriand, by way of whetting the public
curiosity for the report which is expected from
Lieut. Lynch on his return to the United States.
In his approach to the laic:: he says:
"We marched two hours with pistols in our
bands, as in an enemy's country. We followed
the fissures formed between the sand-hills, in a mud
baked by the rays of the sun. A crust of snit
covered the surface, and resembled a snowy plain,
from which a few stunted shrubs rearedtheir heads.
We arrived all at once at the lake; 1 say all ut
once, because I thought we were yet a considera
ble distance from it. No murmur, no cooling
breeze announced the approach to i:s margin. The
strand, bestrewed with stones, was hot; the waters
of the lake were motionless, and absolutely dead
along the shore.
The first thing I did on alighting was to walk
into the lake up to my knees, and to taste the
water. I found it impossible to keep it
. in my
mouth. It far exceeds that of the sea in saltness,
and produces upon the lips the effect of a strong
solution of alum. 'Before my boots were com
pletely dry they were covered with salt; our clothes,
our hats, our hands, were in less than three hours
impregnated with this mineral."
Legions of small fish leaped about the shore at
night, which contradicts the opinion generally en.
tertained that the Dead Sea produces no- living
In 177 S the water was analyzed by Lavoisier and
others, who proved that one hundred pounds of it
contained forty pounds six ounces of salt; that is,
six pounds four ounces or common marine salt,
and thirty.eight pounds two ounces of marine salt
with un earthy base. Mahe Brun ascertained the
the specific gravity to be 1,211, that of fresh water
being 1,000. It is (says he) perfectly transpa
rent. Reagents demonstrate in it the presence of
marine and sulphuric acid ; it does not change col.
ors, such as turnsol and violet. It holds in solution
the following substances, and in the undermen

o'rhis celebrated lake, (says M.Chateaubriand,)
which occupies the site of Sodom and Gomorrah, is
called in Scripture the Dead or Salt Sea ; by the
Latins and Greeks, Asphalites; Ahnotanalt and

the Turks. I cannot coincide in opinion with those

which exhibited incontestible proofs of the agency

of great length, curved like a bow, placed between
two ranges of mouotains, which hove no mutual

attest the anterior existence of a volcano. With
respect to the engulphed cities, I adhere to the ac.
count given in Scripture without summoning phy.

of the lake the shades of the overwhelmed cities.

Inflammation of the lungs, produced by cold, and irruated
by speaking in public so that throughout Saturday night,
Sunday, Monday, till Tuesday, the symptoms of the dis

thought of thin 11/a..ssm, and we sent round to our friend
Heitush, the agent, for a bottle. We took the That dose
according to directions, and almost instantly felt a glow
of healthy warmth through the system. This was two o'-
clock—at five we took another dose, at nine another, and
we soon after detected a perceptible relief in the frequen
cy of the spasms and violent pains that had before attend
ed them. At three in the morning we took another dose,
and the phlegm, though tough, yellow and ropy, was
elected from the lungs with comparative ease. We feel
grateful for the relief afforded, and recommend a trial of
it by all who are suffering as we suffered. We have
deemed it due to the medicine, and to humanity, to give
this unsought testimonial to the virtue of the .Balsam, in
our case.”
