Tbe anxious '.'.; mother became entirely easy on the subject, fuuy believing, mat ty ths viitue of Uie stone, her too had been secured against the dreadful disease. It may he proper, however, to oh serve, that every direction given by the owuer of the stoa was punctually observed, and that tb wound was kept open lor several weeks. - At length, however, it was healed, and all wm thought to be well. on the lorty - MCond dav alter tbe bite was inflicted, E. T. began to complain. Tbe sysup. torn precisely resembled the appearance atUud - - tag diseases common to the season. 11 was ap prehended that be had taken cold, and that be wm bullous. A dose of calomel wm idmiau tared by the mother at night, which not operat ing sufficiently, it wm thought advisable to aid by glauber salts neat morning ; io attempting to , swallow the solution, such dilhcally wm Uis - eemed, that the writer of this article was imme - : dials! v sent for, and I found the sufferer lying in bed, with no symptoms that could in tbe least indicate disrase, except a cwitinutl sighing, for which no reason could be assigned. One or two experiments, however, with liquids, induced tbe suspicion that it was a cue of hydrophobia. In these, and in every other that was made, the difficulty was not in swallowing, but in getting the water into the mouth, and the lips closed upon it That once accoro - plisbed, tbe swallowing waa perfectly cany. This decided fact overthrows a hypothesis which has considerable currency, respecting ; the prominent symptom of the disease. E. T. . was a boy of uncommon resolution, and made Boat powerful efforts to resist tbe spasmodic ' motion produced by every attempt to receive liquids. On the approach of water, however, a working in his breut and shoulders took niece, which increased u the liquid approach ed hit lips and in every instance in which be succeeded in swallowing, there seemed to be a convulsive motion just a tbe mouth and cup came m contact t and tbe water was rstber thrown in the mouth than taken in the usual tray. At other times, the moment that the liquid touched the lips of the patient, his jaws were throw wide open, and his tongue thrust out of ihe mouth, as far as for its length, it eeuld be projected. fit deserves to be particularly remarked that neither previously, nor during the progress ol th disease, was any change discern able in the cicatrice. The wound, after having been kept open for several weeks, was healed; aod from the first symptom to tbe termination of tbe case, tb condition of th scar was th same it war recent, and of court red. The patent did uol complain of jtaxnt thootng from the cleat i ice to the bead ; nor was there any except a tenipora - r dneoalouratioa of the arm. Droduccd bv fric - tioD ; and 'this was used on account of some slight soreness and lUfliirn supposed to have been induced by taxing rold. Within a few hours after any strong vmptom. of the diseas had been developed, the spasms bad greatly increased iu violence and the alTec tiou which at first was produced only by at tempting to swallow liquids, wm brought on by almost any cause ; such as the patient's speak ing, opening the door of the renin, waving the band over bun, or any thing else that put the air about him in sudden motion; so that they might at lencth be raid to be continual. II complained chiefly, for the greator part of the lime, to us his own words, of (he beating of , As htart. Th beat ol the surface was cousi derable, but not extremely great. Tbe action f the puUe very rapid, but the stroke feeble One huodred drops of hudaaum, given iu the course of a few houw, seemed to increase the resUetsoew, and rather agxrarate the symptom Towards th close great complaints were made of beat in the bead; and at Uie patient's request, cloths wet with cold vinegar, were con - taatlj applied. Th poor sufferer, during the whole tune, knew bis friends : and although naturally most affectionate child, he appeared. diiriiiL - th short period of his disease, to b much more so than usual. Th kindest terms wlm - h, lan guage affords were adopted to express liii feel iocs towards bis afflicted mother and other rtU lives. The only indications of an alienation ol reason, made by him, consisted in his once or twice entreating his surrounding rnends by name, to pull bim out of th water, and not suffer him to be drowned. Except this, be appeared to be m tbe full exercise of his reasoning powers His eyes, without any expression of fierceness, were so brilliant as lo require considerable effort to look him in the face. Th course of the dis ease, as has just been intimated, wm very short It was not more than SO hours after the first ap pearance of hydrophobia were exhibited, until 1 the agony was ever.

Stain running ( large in our tlretl$ - a speaking yesterday oa this subject w confiaed oar objections to the single case of indecency, a flagrant instance of which had just been related us. In the coarse of tbe altera jua tbe following facts, showing tbe danger to th lives and limbs of the citisens from this specie of nui sance, cam lo our knowledge, and we lose no time in comeauuicating it to the public, in tbe hope of exciting such marks of universal disap probation, as shall compel those whose duty it is provide a suitable remedy. Yesterday, between II and ;2o1clocU, as Mr John SHdell and Mr. Wm. Harrison, were driving along Broome - street, near Elixabetli - ilreot, at a moderate pace, in a gig, suddenly, two of those enormous, long - legged, overgrown liogi, which, under the o'jnteuance of the authorities, have been introduced into our streets the pretcnt season, started up and ran directly under Ihe horse before they could stop or any way avoid them, and getting entangled in the wheel,lu the end upset the gig, aud pitched out both Mr. 8. and Mr. II. with great violence upon the pave ment. Mr. Slidcll was dreadfully cut over the right eye, bis face much torn, and it is feared from the excruciatiug pain lie suffers, that the bone of the great tone is broken. Mr. Harrison was picked up for dead and remained a considerable time quite seuseleir, the blood issuing in large quantities froai bis ears, li shea iug that the nternal parts of the bead were dangerously in jured. We have not heard how cither of them are this morning nor whether they are both alive. (.Ml week a similar accident happened in the upper part of Greenwich - street, except that the rider escaped much personal injury. Is it not shocking that the streets of this popu lous city should be thus rendered dangerous lo paw, and offensive to the eye of delicacy i Will be believed at a distance that this vile and abominable nuisauce b continued from year tc year, because those who are appointed to take charge of our affairs, are afraid of their popu larity, and e hive to consult the interests and pleasure of a certain class of voters, in ut ter disregard of the safety and convenience of the citixens at larjre ? I am of opinion that th owners ol the hogt who caused the mischief in the cas just relaUl would be liable in action on th cue, for all damages, if they could be found. But the diffi culty is to hud out the owners, for it is a well known fact that droves of swine are sent into tlie streets of th cily of New - York from th neigh boring towns, whence, at tbe proper time, they are withdrawn to be killed and served up at dcla - cies at our tables. Will no facts, no remonstrances avail .' Must we point out by name those who obiticately continue to lend their counleuance support this standing reproach to the police of this city i We hope it wiil not beconi e necessa ry.

A claim was given by Mt. unilty lor me snip, and by Mr. Brown for his own property on board, for the guns, arms and ammunition, m the property of the independent government of Ducoo Ay res ; and for the gold - dust and specie on board as the property of himself, officers aud crew. The cau wm heard at Antigua, and thq whole condemned to the seizors. - An appeal from that sentence has been given in the Hijrh Court of Admiralty, and a claim brought bv John Garcia, esq. on bctia'.f of his Catholic Majesty, Ferdinand VIL The seizor now refused to give an issue to the libel in this claim, until th'e question between him and Mr. Ilruwn wa disposed of, on the ground that the Kinp of Spain was no party to the original nroceedintrs. and it would only serve to em barrass the question ; that if the sentence of tit Court below should be reserved, the different claimants might settle their disputes inter or, with which the seizor could have nothing to do. Sir YV. Scott said it was impossible for Uie Court to receive any claim for the Independent Government of Buenos Ayres, which hail never been re cognized by this country and therefore there was no reason whatever for refuting to answer the claim on behalf of tlie Spanish Government r that be had no hetiut ion in directing an issue to be given to the libel as prayed. LIVEIU'OUL, April i!4. 77is Kale'dotcopt. Au optical instrument, ol the most fasciuatiuz and almost magical nature, has been recently invented by Dr. Brewster, for wliic It he has obtained a patent, under the name of the Kaleidoscope (u compound from theOrerk ipords "to se," "it ori." nna "beautiful.") From the extreme simplicity of the instrument, it is peculiarly liable to imilalioo ; and it is for tins reason that we take so early an opportunity to caution the public against any infringement of the patent, which will be equally injurious to the ingeuious inventor, and attended with considerable nk to the iuiitator and vender. YVe hardly dare tru - t ourselves to speak of the merits of this exquisite toy, lest we should be thought to have permitted our cnlhushsm to have blind ed our roller judgment. The public will soon find, however, that it is impossible to use auy de scriptive language of its beauties, which can deserve the epithet of hyperbolical. w e have corresponded with Dr. Brewster, upon the occaiion ; aud are in daily expectation of receiving a supply of genuine inttrumenlt, not bciug in the habit of vending or countenanc ing spurious mutations of any kind. 1 h pleasing effect ot the Kaleidoscope ari - io from a suc cession ol reflections, by which the objects, even jliould Uiey possess no individual beauty, by their arrangement in hexagonal, peulagonal, or oilier forms, acquire a most interesting limit tnstmblc, with a variety which may he regarded as infinite, as it is probable lb identical picture, in all it circumstances, wdl uever present ibelf to the eya a second time. When tbe shapeless or indifferent nature of lb materials is contrasted with their beauty in ordor, resulting from their successive reflections, it is a most striking illustration of u Order ouitf CAnes.'1 Aor is the Kaleidoscope without its uses. It will be of great service of architects, orna mental painters, plaisterrrs, jeweller, carvers and gilders, cabinet - makers, wire - makers, bookbinders, calico - printers, carpet - manufacturers, manufacturers of pottery, ami every profession in which fancy ornament. 1 pattern are sontrlit after. It is also proposed, as an endless source of amusement, by the creation ami display ol beautiful forms, as the car is delighted with musical combinations : and, in this view - , the Kaleidoscope more than realises the idea of the ocular harpsichord. from Lt .Itueal fs'atimiale.

Shtekiiiir Murder We are informed that on the 12th inst Dr. Robert Uerkely, of Frede rick county, Va. was inhumanly murdered by his nerroes, and his body burnt to ashes. Our informant was not acquainted with the partic ulars i but it appears f rom a hanuuiii we nave received from Winchester, that the principal murderer, a fellow by the name of Randolph, has made his escape. A reward (it 5JW is offered for his apprehension and delivery to the gaoler of Frederick county, lie is described as beintr about 24 years of age, 5 feet 8 or 9 inches hitrfa. very black, his head and face ra ther small when spoken to, appears bold and impudent t Ins shoulders broad and stout, Dis legs rather small than otherwise ; in walking his toes turn out t has lost the joint of his riirht hand fore nntrer. It is believed be bas a scar on one of his legs, occasioned by the kick of a horse. He was sold to Dr. lit rkely about 12 years ago, by John Hopkins, esq. formerly of this place. It is hoped that every good citixen will aid in bringing this monster in human shape to condign punishment. Some of his accomplices have been apprehended and committed, after confessing the fact. INDIAN WAR L THE SOUTH. Cony of a letter from C. Cassidy Esq. te a gentleman iu this city, politely communicated for the Mercantile Advertiser, dated Crugtort, Tennessee, April 29, IHI8. YVe have had no official accounts as yet, respecting the movements or fate of the Southern Army, under the command of old Mars : and I feel some appi el. envious of considerable difficulty being - nerieiKeit in the final reduction of the aciiiiiioiran Indians. These apprehensions are founded on in - lelligence, that flour is 50 dollars per barrel ai Head (jiiarters, as well as that those Indians are resolved never lo hasard a conclusive battle with General Jackson. It appears to be their determinations, to persist in perpetrating Jobberies and murders in small uctaenments, against wni'.n, owing lo the facility with which they can move from place to place, it appears to ine that nothing but Cavalry can be enVctive. In addition, they are perfectly acquainted with the fastnesses of the country which must finally be Ihe scat of war A country which 1 am informed (having never been as far south) is characterised iu numerous instances, bv aliuoul impassible morasses, at well as by rugged and sterile mountains. That they must eventually be overcome, there can be no doubt i and, trom my knowledge ol the man with whom they have to contend, every tiling that prudence, foresight, desperate courage and military skill ran achieve, will Le effected in ihe shortest possible time. War is always to he deprecated as a dread - ul calamity, both to Ihe victors and the vanquish ed ; but, in this particular instance il seems to be absolutely necessary; for, scarcely a week elapses which does uot bring us information of Ihe coulla - gi ation of some dwelling, and the butchery of its deieucele inhabitants by these deluded and miserable beings I say deluded, because it is ascertained that there are a number of foreigners a - inouil them Among whom, nodoubt, are the famous, or rather infamous Captuius ichels and vv. oouiime. tvtiether tnesr miscreants are in tne pay of some European government, grown old in political iniquity and sanguiuary outrage or whether thev are villains, under assumed names, at their own suggestion, time alone can determine : but, whether the former or the latter, we trust that internal Ju - tice will siugle out the real instigators of this war, and again make the arms of the United Slates in strumental to the overthrow of the disturbers of our domestic and national happiness. Were I to huxard a conjecture, as to the olicv which wdl be pursued by the commander in chief, both as resiecl provisioning his army and finally defeating the enemy, I would say, that he will open the navigation of the Apilachicola river through the Spanish dominions lo the Gulf of Mexico, uot - wiihtnding any protests against such a measure by the Spanish authorities' or any military force which may be marshalled to opuoe him. This movement ppears to be absolutely necessary, bc - rause of the difficulty and danger of supplying his troops by land from the popoiated parti of the slate of Georgia.

Meknrholv occurrence. A sjiall slooti rigjfe J boat, started from town on Saturday mo'ning last, at 10 o'clock, with 13 persons oo board, for the MethoJirt Cuaipin Ground, in Christ Chin cb f .insh. At 2 o'clock, when wilhin five miles ol the landing place, the boat, in the act of jibing, was struck by a heavy Daw of wind, and upset. Tho following: are the name of the persons who were picked up, (by one of the Ifland Packets, passing at the time,) some of them nearly exhausted : J. A. Baiter, John M. Hon, J. V. Holmes, C. .Uurdock, J. Sayle, J. W. Huck, J Hatch, Joseph Folker, J. Miles, an old black woman, bO j ears of age, and a boy belonging to iv;r. wiutbrop. 1 he remainder of the compa ny, 7 iu number, it is feared, hare all perished, as none of them have as yet been heard of. YVe forbear at present to mention their names, as some of them may possibly nave escaped a wate ry grave, several of them were valuable citi zens, and some of them respectable strangers. we understand that tho body of Mr. Kobert Alexander, on of the unfortunate persons in the boat, has been found. A pocket book, contain ing papers, c. was found about bis person, which led to tbe discovery of his name. Pittsbcro, Mav 15. Reported Murder. YVe learn that a murder has been committed on the Laurel Hill, some time in the course of last week, by a gang of turnpikera The particulars as far as we have heard them are as follows : A person of the name of Irwin, from the Cove, Kedford county, Pa. was travel liner westward with his family. On ascending the east side of Laurel Hill, he was stopt by a gang of tumpikers, and three dollars demanded of him for liberty to pass He paid the money, and had proceeded but I few rods, when he fell in with, another compa ny, who made a similar demand. Mr Irvin remonstrated against the imposition, alledging that he had already paid S3, and. that it he was to be subjected to demands of this kind, they might strip h im of all he was worth. Some alter - cation folloa ed, when one of the gang struck Mr. Irwin a violent blow on the head with club, and brought him to the ground; whilst another seizing a large hammer, with which he had been breaking stone, gave tbe deceased several blows with it on the shoulder blade and the back of his neck. After languishing a few days, the unfortunate man died ol his wounds. The sheriff and other civil officers, as weil as a company of citizens who have vo lunteered their services, are said to be in pur - su t of the perpetrators of this daring outrage. The frequent recurrence of crimes of the most. flagitious nature, is a stibjectnot only otoeep regret, but is truly alarming ; and loudly calls for the most prompt and vigorous exertions to bring their perpetrators to condign punish - mci - t. BALTIMORE, May 25. ! The hnn. Mr. Pinkoey, (late minister to Rus sia,) and family, arrived in this city yesterday in tne snip riato lrom Bremen. From I - aguira. Tbe Philadelphia papers contain a translation from the Caractas Gazette Cxtraordiuary of 29tli April, of a despatch from the royalist general Pla, dctailui' the particulars of an action with the patriot army uuder Boli var, ou the 17th of that month. It appoara by this, that, after a forced march, Pla, early that morning, reached near the plac where bolivar was stationed with " more than 700 cavalry and 360 infantry, and made prisoner of a servant, who informed where hi) master was sleeping," aud a small party was despatched to secure him. Bolivar narrowly escaped. Rising at the moment the were about to surprize him, he fled to Uie mountains ; his three companions, amoug whom was his priest, friar Prado, were killed. At day light, however, Bolivar presented himself at the head of bis forces, and the two armies were within gun shot of each other. A hard action ensued. Bolivar gave way, and was pursued in every direction, with great loss. Pla, complains of the badness of his bones" had he possessed 200 useful horses, that day would have ended th career of Bolivar and hi followers." " The result of this day's action, is, that the enemy have left on the field of battle more than 400 killed, and 150 prisoners ; among the former are said to be gen. Tomes, cols, fannigue, Galmdo, Ptuango, and Palacios, and maj. Flax. - Among the prisoners, It. col. Beesolari, majs. Francisco, aud Morales, capt. Tobar, Bolivar's aid, and surgeon Uuvares. Besides tnese, loll women huv fallen, into our hands. W'e have also taken 5 JO muskets, 305000 cartridges, 400 lances, 2 stands of colors, 3 ammunition chests, 3 drums, and all the officer's baggage, including Bolivars. Oa our side there was no more loss than col. Lopex, and 7 soldiers killed, and 6 officers aod i!l privates wout.
