In consigning these sacred nunes to the protection of our common mother, a grateful people will cherish in their hearts a sweet remembrance of his virtues witu an embittered regret at his untimely fate. We time now, ui relation to one of ibe Fathers ' of oar country redeemed our chancier from the . imputation of ihcratituds. All this was due to the bereaved, disconsolate, and venerable companion of our fallen chicftan't bosom, and in - fmiteJy more was due to the memory aad rtmaitit of the devoted martyr, to the sacred and imjier - isbablo altar oi Freedom.

The child was im mediately taken to the East - ro.t;n mninnntion. orbexoar st one. It was ap - niid ia tha wound, stock fcr some time, and was Mid to have perfectly performed its office. It was applied a second time, rinding the fear of th narents much nllaved from the rreat confi dence reoosed in the efficacy et this remedy, I endeavoured to impress them with the necessity of wing furthor preventive measures; and as thesitnation of the wound rendered Its eicision difficult, if not inrpracticablei I detcrmioed to make nse of the liberal application of the lunar cam tic With a view of promoting a speedy suppuration, warm poultices were directed to be often applied. Mercurial frictions, and the internal exhibition of small doses of calomel, with a view of exciting the mercurial action, and thus proving an rdditiooal preventive, were also used. The next day, Dr. Warrell saw the patient with me. when it was agreed to remove the eschar produced by the caustic, dilate the wound and again apply the cauitic freely. - The wound was directed to be dressed with the epispastie ointment, and a poultice applied over it. By a eootinaation of this plan of treatment, the wound was put in a suppurating condition, discharging freeiv for several weeks. A slight mercarial ac tion - was also produced, when it was deemed pru dent to omit tho mercurial remedies. The wound filled up and soon after healed. tin V cdnesKlay the 3d lilt. I was a - gain requested to viiit the child, as some symptoms had appeared, calculated very much to a - larm the parents. I was informed, on making my vuit, that during the previous night, the child baj started frequently from Its sleep, screaming atid eviurin? great fear, and com plaining much of its head. As it was then af fected with disordered bowels, common to children at this season, and as I had been in the ha bit of seeing children similarly affected while laboring under that disease, I did not at first sus pect the appearance of the formidable disease which very soon I had to contend with. By more particular enquiries, and closer attention to the state of the system, I began to suspect the real nature of the disease. The parents observed, that the day before, it appeared much alarmed at the sight of flier, and that even the buzzing of those insects around its head threw it into a state of great agitation. When exposed to a current of air from a window, by fanning, waving Die hand before or behind it. or indeed any caase that produced a current of air, the tame symp toms were always produced. Its own image, reflected in a looking glass, produced great apparent terror, and threw it into a state of universal spasmodic tremor. Pouring water from one vessel into another did not seem to affect it much, bnt when water was offered lo it, it seemed a - larmed, seizing the vessel with ferocious avidity, drawing up tho knees '.othe chin, breast heaving and eyes staring. When the water passed the lips, tne uinicuity seemed to hare been surmounted. The distress appeared to have been produced in getlmg it to the lips when this done, it swallowed with great rapidity, but no apparent difficulty in so doing. Repeated sigh ing, and short broken inspirations, resembling asthmatic paroxysms, were observed great irritability of the scalp, and pain iu th head. No longer doubting the alarming nature of the disease, Dr. Watson was requested to visit the patient in consultation. Between 8 and 9 o'clock at night, the doctor attended all the systems were aggravated. The doctor did not hesitate to prouuunre it a distiuct marked case of hydrophobia. He had attended the son of Mrs. Tay lor, who died with the tame disease, and be pointed out the similarity in the symptoms. An ene ma, containing 15 drops of the tincture of opium, had been prescribed, with directions to repeat it until some effect ni produced Ccld applications were duected tone applied to the head. On an examination of the wound, some inffim - matmuwas ohstrvedin the cicatrix, and conceiving Uiat some irritation existed there, having an agency in the present symptoms, it was suggested by fr. W. that the wound should bo a - gain put into a suppurating condition, by the up. pli' ation of the caustic, n hich w as done. Five drops oi'latidanum were ordered I) he given every half hour until the elfcct was produced. Be tween 5 and 0 o'clock on Tl.urfthy morning, our visit was repeated. Seventy - five drois of had heen taken, without producing a nv bencln i ll clla l. Sleeo had not been Dtodu ced, and except a cooicus perspiration, none of me enccis oi cne opr.un on ine system were on - served, A frothy tnlirn was constantly issuing iroin the mouth," all the symptoms were more violent, and evidently portended speedy dissolu tion. As every attempt to arrest the fatal termina tion of the disease had been made without effect, it wai propoicd by a higlily respectable member oi lacu.iy present, supported oy ouiers aiso present, and nrgi d hy the friends of the child) to anttract tiloau, conformable to the practice pur - sued in the r.aet Indies, toe iuzular vein was oreoed, but before 4 or. was drawn away, fainting was produced, which rendered it necessary to stop the flow of blood, totween 2 and 3 P. M.dcatfi terminated the existence of the little sufferer. Whatever confluence my views of (lie nature of this disease, may induce melo reuose inthe lancet, 1 am far from thinking that tho present case was one calculated to lest tlxi ei1i,:ury oi that remedy. The advanced period of th - ; disease, the state of the pulse, which from the I c ginning was weak, quick an I initahlc ; mi.) the debility produced by another and pn - vioii disease, ail aeemed calculated to pretlud.; any hp - refit being derived from the lancet And "us U" - operation may have had Hi - ; elleet of l;i - iiiiur in upon me regular progress oi me u.seasf, nn tb.:rby prev silting the occurrence ot souie of ( symptoms, so necessary to l known nr.d dcrstood, it would lure b - :e.i b - ilcr, in all pn'ia - bility, to have oinittt - H the operation a'toether. On reviewing the history of this ci - ' - . and the analogous one of Mr. Tajlor's child, it would seem that iU true nature ha not as vet been properly denned. That the dre.ul of (In - ids does not proceed from an inabil.ty to sual low them, seems clear from the lii'ory of boUiCises. the only apparent ilihi( iil:y was getting the water to the lips.

It has been stated in Parlia ment that there are above 200 regular Huh houses bouses for the reeeption of stolen roods. and resort of thieves kept open day and night in Lonjon, au which rc known te the police offi cers, who receive ll) a year from each house as r - ujh money, kc. These houses are frequent ed by botween 1 1 and 12,000 persons, 6000 of wliom are boys and girls from ten to fifteen years old who there divide their spoils ant riot in bestial debauchery." I The above article is copied from Niks Resi stor. From Ibis article it will be teen, that London is m a most hopeful way b mend her mo rals, sue uas come ou nobly inher Flash Houses for the last twenty years. Ia 173, according to Colqubou'a Police of Loudr.n, there was about juuu receivers ol stolen gooth in lxmdon. Now it seems, the number is 1 ,000, a pretty tolerable round increase ! The amount of property then annually stoleu was estimated at 700,000, or $3, 100,000 ! According to the ratio tel down in Uie estimate of.Wr. Colquhon, thn annual amount of stoleu property, deposited in the Flash - Houses, muitnow be rising of twe'irrmtlioncf dollars, more thau on', million of dollars above the v. bole estimated expense of our national government for the year I61R! If tha policeoificers, whose duty It is to break up horrid haunts of cuilt and prostitution of every description, receive 10 from each house annually, the price of their bi i - ocry is more than nail a million of dollars. Here is a picture that shocks humanity and almost staggers belief. It is a deep admonition to tho cities of the nor Id. It shows in the most strikiug manner, the vital necessity of rendering the burthens of government light, and the temptations (o vice as few as possible ; and it also snows, tnat a stern, unbending and visornut no tice is the moral ihiolj which every ereat ciiv should provide and keep bumbhed and ready for assault. Our city is becoming, in wealth and popula tion, another London. We are not for cruel punishment, but with Buccraria, we believe that their efficacy depends much upon the certainty oi uie ir inuicuon. a vigilant, unsiombering po lice can do much, however, to rreveut Ihcir ne cessity. They should uot be contented to attack that vice ana profligacy whic h ant .ears at noon day, or whi h is to palpable and disgusting as to meet the public eye; but they should teek the mounter in her kennels and labyriulhs, and drag her forth to condign chastisement. - " Alitur vitium, vivelque tcjonJo." Exlrattt from the MS. of the Dulct of Rorigo. M. E'mtnard The duke of Koi uro rucaki with great approbation of the wit and talents of lae late M. rmenard ; no one porfessed equal facility. Whichever cause he was called upon lo support, arguments aud special picas crowded under hit pen with an abundance rcaliy inexhaustible. His excellency assures be never knew a mora lh xiWc spirit, ui proof of wbicii he quotes the following farts : " When it was in agitation to erect the repnb lie of Holland into a kingdom, Napoleon directed M. do Taileyran I, then minister for foreign affairs, to furnish him, within eight days, with a memorial, calculated to convince the authorities of that republic that their form of government was incompatible with the system generally a - dopted in Eurrpe, and that tho only means of maintaining their country's independence in th: political balance of Kurope, was to choose a king out of Napoleon's family. On qui:ting the Tbti - illeries M. do Talleyrand ran to his uual drudges ; hecall'J by turns on Messrs. d'Hauterivc.

"It was perfectly felt at Amsterdam, that intimations of that kiud amounted to positive command?. Yet it was rcolvod to try a last attempt. The whole diplomatic strength of Holland fell to work, each produced his unte, which were put together an J despatched In Paris, with directions to employ some French literary character lo dije.' .thorn, andtlrike outanantwer to hi imperial nHj'ety'j meuiorl. The ambassador was aecitlcntaliy arqnaintei with M. EsmniHi 1, and applied to him to find out the man he had occasion for.

Mr. Johnstone wasiii Rosseau, at tho time of the punbhtnent, but be did not know ol it untd it was finished ; the mo ment he was informed of it, he addressed a letter to Mr. Anderson, the prcses of the special court wliich had tried Thornton, but he received no answer to it ; tiie same day, Mr. Johnstone went to .Mr. llobson to state the circumstances, and on his way he wet Mr. Sutherland, to whom he complained of the shameful conduct of Dr. Rir - mingham, in having punished Thornton after he luid been acquitted by a jury, and also fur havintr mmished the other necroes without bringing them to trial, for which purpose they were brought to town under a military guard the only reply Mr. Johnstone pot from Mr. Sutherland was, that Dr. Birmingham had a perfect right to do so Mr. Johnstone did not find Air. llobson at home that day, but he call ed upon him the next day ; on passincr the new court - house, he was accosted by the F.ver - ton - hall negroes, then working in chains . - l'horuton had nothing but his shirt on, and be pulled it up to show Mr. Johnstone the nature of the punishment lie bad received, wliich, in the opinion ol Mr. Johnstone, was the most se vere he had ever seen the posteriors were all in a mass ot blood, and the marks of the cart - whip were at least two inches broad ; indeed, even at this date, 18th October, 1816, H months date from the punishment, he bears upon him, and will for life, the marks of this cruel and unexampled punishment: all the other negroes, seven in number, namely, Fom - pey, Billy, Simon, Jack, Anthony, Hoatswain, and Clapham, were also in a shocking state. and were with Thornton compelled to work in chains, without beinff allowed any time to recover from the effects of the punishment" We also add the cases of other negroes, and must express our conviction, from the perusal of these papers, that the conduct of the grand jury in rejecting three bills has been very singular ; and that the governor of Dominica is fully justified in directing official informations to be filed in future caes wherein slaves have sustained brutal treatment from ikf mas'ri. 1st.
