We liavc first rate medical autho

ficulty consists almost wholly in
the attempt to speak while the
lungs are partially exhausted.
2. If the tongue adheres too
closely, at first, to the roof of the
mouth, place on it a. nine penny
piece or a quarter of a dollar, as it
may be found necessary, that the
utterance may be more distinct,

Rail Roads. The Boston Ad
vertiser gives the following inter
esting particulars of the opening,
as well as the construction of the
first rail way which has been com
pleted in our country:
"Quincy Rail Road. This
Rail Road, the first we believe in
this country, was opened on Sat
urday, in presence of a number of
gentlemen who take an interest
in thn fixnorimcnt. A cmantitv ofi

on from the ledge belonging to the
Bunker Hill Association, and loa
ded on three waggon, which to
gether weigh five tons, making a
load of twenty-one tons, was mov
ed, with case, by a single horse,
from the quarry to the landing a
bove Ncponset bridge, a distance
of more than three miles. The
road declines gradually, the whole
way, from the quarry to the land
ing, but so slightly that the horse
conveyed back the empty waggons
making a load of five tons. After
the starting of the loads, which' re
quired some exertions, the horse
moved with case in a fast walk.
It may therefore be easily conceiv
ed how great the transportation
of heavy loads is facilitated by
means of this road. A large quan
tity of beautiful stone, already pre
pared for the Bunker Hill . Monu
ment, will now be rapidly and
cheaply transported to. the wharf
at the termination of the rail road,
whence it will be - cpnvcyed by
lighters to Charlestown.
"This road is constructed in the
most substantial manner. It rests
on a foundation of stone laid so
deep in the ground as to be be
yond the reach of the frost, and
to secure the rails on which the
carriage runs effectually against
anv chancre of their relative posi
tion; they are laid upon stones of
eiaht feet in length, placed trans
versely along., the whole extent of
the road, at distances of 6 or 8
feet from each other. Tjie space.
between these stones is filled with
smaller stones or earth, and over
the whole' between the rails, a
gravel path is made. Flic rails
are formed of nine timber, on the
top of which is placed a bar of i
ron. The carriages run upon
the iron bars, and are kept in place
by a projection on the inner edge
of the tire of the wheels. The
wheels are of a siza rnnswWnkltr
larger than a common cart wheel.
VVe learn from a gentleman
who has visited the princioal rail
roads in England, that in point of
souaity and skill m construction,
this is not exceeded by any there"
Balloon.. ..Mr. Robertson, the

lady, ascended from Castle Gar

been upwards of two thousand dol
