comprising every style and variety of
the newest patterns They return
their most cordial thanks to their
friends in the Sou! hern States, for
their support in the persecution now
carrying on against them, for their
refusal to join a combination in fixing
one tariff of prices for Crockery,
throughout the trade. It is mainly
attributable to the influence of our
Southern friends that wo have beer,
enabled to survive thus far, in this
most trying situation; exposed to the
combined influence and capital of the
whole trade, endeavoring to effect our
ruin and expulsion frm business.
We pledge ourselves to our friends to
give them every satisfaction in em
power as regards the quality of our
goods, the excellence of our packers
and the lowrrssol our prices lor Cash
or City Accept arcs; 2nd in return,
soiicit from them a continuance of
their patronage, and particularly re
quest those who have influence with
their fiicnds to exert it in our behalf,
as we trust the cause is one they are
all interested in, and much benefit
will accrue to us from their friendly
acts in this way. It has been said,
the Combination was broken up. As
it regards prices, this is true, and all,
we think, friends or foes will allow
that we have effected this change; but
we do assure our friends, that at no
period since we commenced our sys
tem of unshackled prices were we in
greater want of assistance than at the
present moment. This combination
of men ate leaving no means untried
for effecting our ruin, that they may
revive the old system: our credit and
character are assailed in every shape,
our importations waylaid and stopped
in every instance where threats are
sufficient to intimidate the manufactu
rers from supplying us; in fine, no
vexation or trouble w hich the malice
of men could devise has been neglect
. . ... . i ti
ed in this struggle to sunoue us. v e
once more call upon, every friend of a
free trade to come up to our support,
and pledge ourselves to give them no
cause to repent of their liberality.

Colonization Society. The
managers of the Colonization
Society of the city of New York
have published an address to
the public, urging the expedi
ency of the plan of colonizing
Africa, principally with a view
of extirpating the slave trade,
by establishing settlements of
civilized men along the coast of
A brief abstract of facts rela
ting to the state and prospects
of the Society and its colony
makes part of the address.
During thirteen years of the ex
istence of the Society, its in
come was S10G,000, and for the
year 1329, 820,000. The ex
pense of transporting each per
son is estimated not to exceed
$18. About' 2,000 persons,
many of them slaves manumit
ted for the purpose, have alrea
dy emigrated, and numbers are
ready to free their negroes the
moment the means of transpor
ting them to Africa are obtain
ed. The colony at Cape
Montserado and its neighbor
hood is represented to be well
adapted to the negro constitu
tion, and is the most salubrious
part of Western Africa.
The Philadelphia. United
States Gazette informs us, that
a professional gentleman of
that city, has invented, and
nearly finished a chair, which
affords to the occupant all ad
vantages of equestrian exerci
ses. By a very slight move
ment of a screw, or a small
crank, effected by the occupant
of the chair, without any con
siderable effort, the motions
can be varied from an imita
tion of trotting, to that of gal
loping, racking, pacing, &c.
Mr. Burgess. Col. Tonsel
lot of Cincinnati, has published
a Card in the "Daily Cincinna
ti Gazette," giving a few toucIQ
es of Mr. Burgess's history.
He was bed an apprentice to
the coopering business. After
he had carried it on himselftor
some lime, he acquired "aeol
legiate education, studiefl the
profession of law, becaane a
member of the State legisla
ture, Chief Justice ofdthe Su
preme Court, Professor of Ora
tory and Belles getters in
Brown University, and a mem
ber of Congress. This short
sketch of Mr. B. is more honor
able to him, than all his speech
es. It Js alike creditable to
his own talents, and to the free
institutions of his country.
(Seeking the welfare of
man is goodness of nil virtues
the greatest because it is aim-
ing to imitate God.
