Sun,cvenina paper. " See also a thrilling and harrowing chapter in ' Rush, on Diseases of the Mind ;" and, as illustrative of the author's text, physicians testify that the practice of these delusive habits is a greater source of dorangement than all others, and, as is also observed by the trnly intelligent superintendents of the insane hospitals at Worcester and Hatford, is probably the chief cause of . many patients being brought there, but almost un insuperabl obstacle to their recovery." Medical Review. "Curtis on Manhood. Fortunate for a country would itbe, did its youth put into practice the philanthropic and scientific maxims here laid down; one cause of matrimonial misery might then bo banished from our land, and the race of the enervatobe succeeded by a renewal of the hardy, vigorous spirits of the olden time."

Dr. H. G.

"DearBir, It affords mo great pleasure in being able to bear testimony relative to your excellent treatment for the gout and general oases of rheumatism, having seen it most successful m several severe cases. I must say, that in my opinion it is one of the moat useful remedies of the day, and one which ought to be ' more generally known. I shall Be glad to do anything I can to forward your views.-1 have the honour to be, clear sir, yours faithfully, " Henry Green, M.D. " To Dr. H. G. Vandall and Sons, "Great Cumberland-street, Hyde Park." Dr. Vandall and Sons beg also to bring before the notice of the world their remedy for instantly removing those most distressing pains, tio doloreanx and toothache, and which they are sure will be acknowledged by all persons afflicted with those distressing pains, to giveinBtant and likewiselasting relief after having experienced weeks, and in some cases months, of the mostintense agony. This retnedyhas been and is daily testedattheLondon, St. Thomas's.and Guy's hospitals, and never in one instance known but to effect an instant cure. Decayed teeth need no longer be extracted, for so certain and effective is the cure, that an aching tooth, after being treated by Dr. "Vandall and Sons' remedy, can immediately bo stopped, and being rescued from the hand of the extractor, will remain useful for life. The application is most simple, and causes not the least trouble, pain, or inconvenience. One trial will convince the wonderful powers with which it aots upon the parts affeotoa. Post office orders, payable to Dr. H. G. Vandall and Sona, surgeons, Great Cumberland-street, Hyde Park, for 5s. will receive immediate attention. But it is necessary that patients shouia state which complaint thoy are suffering from, and, should they prefer, Dr. Vandall and Sons will forward the above remedies on 6s. being sent.

Letters from Badajoz report tbat the officers of the Portuguese troops stationed at Elvas, in Campo Mayor, had intimated that though willing to remain faithful to the queen and the charter, and wishful not to dis obey Saldanbn, yet they could not consent to serve under Baron Das Antas, sent by Saldanba to command them, as the baron was a former member of the junta of Oporto. These letters also intimate that the movement at Elvas would probably be followed at Oporto, where the troops were placed under Baron de BimQn,who is little liked by the army. Lisbon advices of the 4th do not allude to these events, and the Madrid advices probably exaggerate tbeir importance. The Madrid Journal states, that before the insurrection of Saldanba, a branch of the central revolutionary committee installed itself at Lisbon.

MANCHESTER, Tuesday, June 10th. Our market has to-day shown more decided indications of improvement than we have witnessed for some weeks. The low prices to which yarns and goods have fallen, the bareness of stocks in first hands, and the gradual return of con fidence, begin to lead to larger operations, to a better feeling among buyers, and more firmness on the part of sellers. The purchases for India, which for some weeks have been on a liberal scale, are continued at full prices. Higher rates have been asked for 00 and 60 mule, and for shirtings nnd madnpollams, but in few, oases only have been obtained. The Greek merchants are buvintr freelv for the Levant, which has created a good demand for water twist, in some instances at a small advance in price. The German houses still operate with caution, and show no disposition to accumulate stocks, even at last week's limits. The hometrade showsmoro activity; and we hearof cases in which, for 32 cops, -d. to jtl. per lb more has been paid since last Tuesday. The American letters last received have had little effect on the market. The increase of receipts at the norts. and the larger estimates now given of last year's crop, with advices of a large increase in the extent of land under cultivation for this year's growth, confirm the general impression that we shall have an ample supply of the raw material, and at moderate prices. The following report of the cotton market is from a Liverpool correspondent : " Liverpool, June 10th. Afair inquiry for cotton has taken place each day, since the commence ment of business ou Saturday last; but as holders evince no very strong desire to effeot sales, though supplying the market freely, we close to-day steady, at the quotations of Friday for all descriptions. The total stiles since Thursday are 28,000-bales, of which 2,600 are on speculation, and 3,900 for export The sales consist of the following descriptions : 24,620 American, 4d. to 7d.; 150 Pernam, GJd. to 7Jd. ; 100 Bahia, 6Jd. to 6d.; 380Maranbam,64d. to 7d.; 350 Egyptian, 6d.; 2,400 Surat, $ia, to 3d.; total, 28,000 bales. The total imports, since Friday, are 61,515 bales." MR. ASA WHITNEY'S AMERICAN RAILROAD. A vast project has been started in the United States, which, from its very magnitude, might seem to belong rather to the realms of imagination than, of sober fact, if it had no hotter recommendation than the grandeur of its conception and the speculative promise of mighty advantages to be reaped from its realisation. Whatever may be said or thought of the peculiarities of American genius, certain it is that in no other country does the movement of society present itself in such a ceaseless succession of rapid but gigantic achievements, that seem proportioned rather to the geographical extent of a boundless territory, than to the ordinary conditions of national self-development elsewhere. Within little more than half a century a series of subject dependencies numbering a population that the present limits of London would almost have sufficed to contain, has risen to the rank of a great nation, equal in its resources to the mightiest of the empires of the old world. Cities that would rival, in means and magnitude, all but the chief capitals of most European states, have sprung up in the wilderness, and a vigorous if rude civilisation has projected itself in every direction over a continent that for thousands of square miles has become the-seat of a busy, energetic, thriving, and educated race of industrious men. Enterprises that might seem dreams to theEuropean imagination, are quite within, the sober limits of legitimate speculation- when connected with projects for utilising the resources, or opening out new fields for the profitable occupation, of a people at once so aspiring and adventurous. There is nothing short of the miraculous that a strong will and a oloav purpose would not place within the reach of American enterprise, . Whnn fl. pro ject has been once started that assures all tbat can be predicted from its success, and requires for its completion only such an adaptation of means to ends, as can be fairly shown to be within the scope of commercial calculation, there is nothing in the mere magnitude of the undertaking that will be likely to prove a serious obstacle to its ultimate accomplishment. The scheme of Mr. Asa Whitney, for carrying a railroad across the far west portion of the United States, from the borders of Lake Michigan to the shores of the Pacific, has been the subject of considerable discussion in America, and is not without interest or importance to the people of this country. The projector of the scheme is now in England, with a view, as we understand, to direct the attention of Government to its feasibility, and secure whatever countenance or favourable consideration can be obtained from that source, or from public opinion generally. In a series of letters recently published in the columns of the Morning Chronicle, he has endeavoured to show not only tho practicability of his plan, hut the superiority of the route over all others for commercial purposes to the east, and the islands of the Pacific and Indian oceans. Without entering at all upon the speculative question of what might he the possible consequences of the actual completion of such an enterprise, the scheme of Mr. Whitney, both from its magnitude and novelty, is not without interest to the British public. There is nothing in the nature of the undertaking itself that seems to militate against its practicability, and the simplicity of the means by which it is proposed to be accomplished is the main element upon which Mr. Whitney relies for recommending it to the serious adoption of the people and Congress of the United States. He asks neither for loans nor taxes. The line is to be made and paid for by the wilderness through which it is to pass. His plan is this. He proposes to the Government of the United States to grant him a belt of land sixty miles in breadth, throughout the whole of the territory, to he traversed by the railway. Erom the western margin of Lake Michigan, to the Pacific Ocean the line would extend two thousand miles, and as the first 800 miles is known to consist of soil of first-rate fertility, end the whole to be of good average quality, he calculates that he should be able to secure both the requisite labour and capital by selling the land at a cheap rate, and locating 30,000 families per annum along the line. Each of these families would become the possessor of 160 acres of land, and the number of immigrants annually required for his purpose, would only he about one-fourth of the whole number of emigrants from other countries that now arrive every year on the shores of the United States. Thus a population would year by year be located ou the soil their labour would serve to construct the road, and the road as completed would supply, at an almost incalculably small cost, the means of conveying their surplus products to the best markets. Thus, the settler would have the ad vantage of purchasing good land at a very low rate"; the population would be concentrated along the line so as to afford the means of mutual exchange, and thriving communities, with an economical outlet for all their surplus produce, would find themselves in possession of far better guarantees for their prosperity than are afforded to isolated colonies in remote districts of the West without roads or facilities of any kind for disposing of the fruits of their industry. mania the parable, to "pull down their barns and J build greater,'" therein to accumulate their vegetable wealth until the hour when the fluctuations of the market should augment its value, We do not think this consideration will long escape the notice of the smaller farmers, and those of but moderate means, who will thus be inclined to doubt whether, after all, they had been "rowing in the same boat," to quote a common phrase at agricultural reunions. Still more clearly they must perceive, that the relations between themselves and their landlords, in spite of the same affectionate assurance, are not exactly, on all occasions, those of community of interest, not on quarter-day, at all events, nor on the renewal of a lease, but that as dealing one with another, it behoves each party in the contract to take care and secure conditions fair to himself. And, lastly, we already can observe symptoms, in Norfolk, in Kent, and in other districts which are somewhat forward, of an inclination among the farmers to assume tbeir legitimate place in the scale of political importance, and to make their voice heard on questions of general moment, which concern them equally with their fellow-countrymen. We regard the letter of Mr. Pdsey, although coming from a landowner, yet from one who has much of the confidence of the tenant-farmers, from his parliamentary efforts to secure their interest, and from his practical acquaintance with the details of their business, as another sign of the approaching break-up of that narrow-minded combination, on the sole grounds of the retention of tbeir peculiar monopoly, at the expense of every other class, which has kept together the bulk of those immediately interested in agriculture. When country gentlemen begin to think for themselves, independently of their, party, they will soon have their neighbours the farmers independent also in the assertion of political opinion. Mr. Pusey refuses to be led by the party, which has so stringently exercised rule over the county members and squires who sit in the house ; he says, in his rejoinder to the Protectionists, who had issued what he calls " a bull" of excommunication, addressed to his own constituents : v Gentlemen, I protest against this foreign" dictation. I up hold the royal prerogative of dissolution against such almost papal aggression, and. call upon you to help me. As long as I am member for Berkshire, I will not do the bidding of the member for Bucks. He can no more teach me what is good for agriculture than I can teach him the straight way to office. Gentlemen, indeed I cannot, and will not, turn Israelite. If you ask me why, I do not regard the uon, memoer as an Israelite uimseir wicnout guile. It seems to me, gentlemen, that your own rights as voters are endangered by this attempt to smuggle a seat quite as much as your member's character. In common contests customers do endeavour to control tradesmen; yet at least there are two parties in the field who watch each other's proceedings. But what protection is there for a voter in this new-fangled contraband process ? Yet if ever there was a question ou which the 40s. freeholder had as good a claim to the free use of his birthright as the tenant of 400 or the owner oi 4,uuu acres, surely it is the price or ins loat. I warn yon, gentlemeu, that if vou once allow this new kind of dictation, yo.u will not merely permit your present memoer to oe staooeot in tne tiara, out win einperu lor the iuiure tne maepenuent exercise ot your own trancmses We begin, however, by noticing the letter of Mr. Gran'Tley Berkeley, which is only remarkable, as we said, as a proof how little can he said on the side of one who declares that he will " continue to sup port Lord Stanley and Mr. Disraeli," but who can give the world no more intelligible reason for doing so than this : I will not stop to inquire "what the two Protectionist leaders mean to do it tney come into power. Alt 1 know as to those two leaders is that they have endeavoured to alle- vAttie luc suiienuys ui we uuiy luicreai mttt i neiu iu oe under undeserved, and, as Lord John Russell's parly admits, to some extent, unexpected depression. If Mr. Berkeley knows no more about "those two leaders," we think we could inform him of much. His notions appear equally imperfect as to the mea sures of relief he himself would recommend. We cannot gather even a hint from the owlish note "I told you so !" which he utters over what he supposes to be the failure of the Exhibition of Industry. The , reference is as irrelevant as one of Sibxhorp's speeches. Supposing " the two million foreigners have not come, or even quarter the number, what has that to do with the repeal of the corn-laws? except, indeed, Mr. Berkeley means to argue that because one set of persons miscalculated the results of one thing, therefore other quite different persons, must necessarily have blundered, several years ago, in a very different thing ; for, says he : We have bad to remark that the supporters of free trade have confessed themselves mistaken as to its effects in the depression of prices ; let us observe how similar has been the failure of ihe expectations of the promoters of the Exhibition. It is not worth while to contradict the assertion, by reference to the unprecedented myriads of spec tators, the large sale of tickets, and the vast display of articles that load the stalls of the Glass Palace. What we look for from Mr. Berkeley, or from anyone taking the same course, is an intelligible state ment of his proposals. The following paragraphs are the only attempt to indicate any substantial measures : To sum up tbat which I thought would have been tbe free-trade measure, I must say that I expected one which would have permitted the fanner to use his laud, as the manufacturer does his machinery and steam, for the unfettered production and use of any crop be could make the earth produce. I don't think that any one or two measures of isolated relief can rescue him from his present depression. On the contrary, it must be a general remission of taxation and relief from peculiar burdens tbat can alone under free trade materially assist him, coupled with just as much protection as puts hira on a. par with tbe foreign producer. Without that protection be shares no free trade. Now, if by the first-mentioned, Mr. Berkeley means that he wishes the British farmer to turn to cul- Proposals for the abolition of tivating tobacco, manufacturing beet root sugar, and feeding ins cattle on malt, we must allow mat the States Government for the land. This would amount to eight millions of dollars for tbe seventy-height millions of acres comprising the extent of territory "required by his plan. The sale of the surplus lands on each side of the line wouia realise an ampie prone, he calculates, for his share in the enterprise. There can he no doubt that such a plan of regular colonisa tion would offer attractions to emigrants tar superior to the present mode of isolated self-distribution throughout untamed wildernesses; His operations would be confined to ten miles at a time, and by continuing the process in similar sections, the work would be gradually completed, and every advance would connect the remotest settlers with easy and expeditious access to the older states of the union, and on to the Atlantic. There is nothing in the nroieot hut its magnitude that seems in any way paradoxical. Mr. Whitney estimates that fifteen years would suffice for its full realisation. On its completion, he proposes to constitute the line national property, free of all tolls but such as would be necessary to keep it in repair and defray the cost of transit. The capital required. to start tbe enterprise would be comparatively small, as the. sale of tbe land would provide sufficient means to" meet' the outlay beforehand at every stage. This is barely an outline of the. scheme which Mr. Whitney has submitted for their sanction to the American people and the American Congress. The legislatures of twenty-one States of the Union have given their formal approval to the project. A com mittee of the Senate of the United States has reported favourably, and a bill has been introduced into the House of Representatives for conferring the requisite powers upon Mr. Whitney. It appears, however, tbat the tide of emigration which has been for some time directing itself to tbe western shores of Lake Michigan renders it not at all improbable that before an act can be obtained a large part of the territory required as the starting point for this new scheme of railroad colonisation will have been alienated, and interpose serious difficulties to, if it does not actually prevent its accomplishment, so far as the territory of the United States is concerned. Mr. Whitney, however, holds the project to be quite ' as practicable on the Canadian side, and through British territory to the Pacific, as on the American side of Lake Michigan. Both 6oil and climate are inferior, hut the natural obstacles be alleges in other respects are not greater. Our purpose, however, is neither to, speculate on the practicability of the plan, nor to canvass the grounds upon which Mr. Whitney rests his' belief 'in the vast commercial advantages which Great Britain and tbe United States would equally' share,' from opening, out such means of communication across the American continent with, India and China'; we content our selves simply with a narrative of the. chief features of this gigantic, scheme for uniting' the Atlantic and Pacific seas as the shortest route from England to the East. Mr. Whitney alleges that by steam from Liverpool to New York, thenVacross. the American continent by 'rail, and again by steam' across the Pacific to China, would not occupy more than 29i days, and would be a shorter route than any other for commerce with India and China. The truth of his statement, he says, may be tested by measuring distances between this and any other route on tbe globe, and that if even the Isthmus Of Panama were swept away, the difference in point of time would be greatly in favour of the projected route by railway across the American continent. Without hazarding any comments on this subject, there can be little doubt, we think, that Mr. Whitney's projects would realise for the United States immense advantages in a social and political poiDt of view, and the very means of completing it would involve the noblest scheme of systematic colonisation that was ever carried into,effect. That there is nothing in the enterprise but the grandeur of the conception and its vast extent which can reasonably be pleaded against its practicability, the perfect simplicity of the means, and their adequacy to the end, would almost seem to vouch. Should Mr. Asa Whitney be successful in securing the requisite authorisation of Congress to commence the work, its completion would place his name among tbe foremost of the benefactors of his country.

It has since brought out an epistle, purporting to be a reply, from Mr. Grantley Berkeley, but of such a oharacter as must tend only to expose more conspicuously the utter emptiness of that shallow structure of pretensions, which the remnants of the once powerful Protectionist party are endeavouring to keep still Before the eyes oljthe'agriculturists of this country.

It appeared ibat tbe day after the robbery, the prisoner bad been selling lengtbs of silk for dresses, to various persons in Oldham, at ubotit one-third tbeir value. There was a woman named Buck-ley also in custody, but the charge against her was principally for concealing the fact of her having made several purchases, and recommending customers. Ann Fielding, of Oldham, had given hira 20s. for 20 yards el figured green silk; Margaret Austin and ilauuali Maris Ward, both of Oldham, had made jinrelinses at the same rate. Mr. Blenkiusop recognised the patterns as corresponding to those missed, and identified one piece by a footmsri which had been made upon it tbe day before the robber;. The prisoner M'Curdy made no defence, and was coinisitifj to the assizes for trial.

We are not disposed to deny that all these vague and various cravings evince the existence of an uneasy and unsatisfied feeling among the farmers, and not less among the class of shopkeepers and artificers in some agricultural districts, who must necessarily partake the temporal inconveniences endured by those on whose custom they depend. But we trust those who may now experience some difficulty, in comparison with their position in the days of dear corn, will be induced to acknowledge ere long, that if the departed arrangements now and then bestowed feverish and exciting opportunities of large gains to the speculators on the chances of bar. vest, there were also intervals of sudden vicissitude and reaction, seasons in which the agriculturist too often found himself in the ungracious attitude of being the sole grumbler among a nation rejoicing in the cheap bounty of a propitious sky. And it will occur to the reflection of everyone practically conversant with the operations of a rural corn market, that the advantage, such as it was, of snatching the" large profits to be realised by a single transaction at a period of high prices, were confined chiefly to a select class of farmers and millers, men having the command of spare capital, men who could afford to store up their grain for. many months, in anticipa tion of a lucky rise, men, in short, very influential perhaps as representatives of a party of tbe complex " agricultural interest," but very different in their means from the ordinary sort of working farmers, who are constrained pretty frequently to sell their harvest as soon as it is reaped, to pay the Michaelmas Mr. Whitney offers ten cents per acre to the United I ot Christmas rent, instead of being able, like the rich consistent development of the free-trade policy involves tbe ultimate removal of whatever fiscal restrictions may exist, to. preclude the farmer from trying any such experiments he may please, but it must be at his own expense ; no protective exclusion of the produce of a more favourable clime, nothing in the shape either of a bonus or of a guarantee afforded by the rest of the community, must be so much as dreamt of. And to say that without such protection the farmer shares not free trade, is like saying that without aristocratic predominance the lords of tbe land share not popular liberty.
