Professor Olmsted, in a _2;eological ex
cursion ill the eoimty of W ake, iSoi lh
Carolinii, met with the f)tlo\»iii" I'uef,
whirh w»; juesont in his ou n u onjs ;
“At.Mr-'. 'I'hoinpsou’s', where I dined,
I saw a fellow erentiirc u liosc siiliei inp
made nn*. truly thankful even for my
own imjiCilVet fiealfli. Jle was a son
of i\Irs. 'r. and nearly lii’ty years oi'
When I eaine into thti poreii, 1k‘
u'3s sittinji; before the enir.inee in an el
bow ehair, surrounded with piilons,
with no eiol.hint^ hut a frock of linen,
that eamo half \vay down his kees: The
“liastly iniajie ol tlealh was imprinted
on evei'v |iait. oi’ liis emaeia^efl liaiue.
'I’lu; boiu of arms aiuriejis were
hai tlly eo\cred u itli He‘'h, and the joints
ol’ llu; knees, and the Idi iiTst joints of
the lin^'eiN, were increased to an enor-
nioMs size. Ills knees were drawn to-
jjjether heyond the power of separation,
shoi teniii*; the left leg so tliat nodiin;-
hut the toes reaeheti the iloor. The
hands u-ere forcibly and irremovably
lixed lo the hreast, the distm ted fingers
being bent backwards, formitif^ an arch
o\(.-r the swollen ihouikI at the joints.
A little motion with the ends of the lin-
was all the siitierer could produce;
and I was much itn])ressed witli the in
sensibility of man to his orcHnary bles-
siiio's, when I saw this poor invalid call
sevej'al times for a servant to come afid
brush oil a lly that was bitinii; his le^;
uiimolested. On his back was a large
running sore, which his fi ieiuls were
I . eei tain wlu'ther to a-'Cril.'e to disease,
Ol’ to tl’iA • '’tr'is of lying so loi'sr iii a
hot i/ontaJ imiiio\ ab)e jxjsture. The
daily dressing of this sore, which was
j)eri’ornied wiiih,* I was present, gave
iiiiii so gr»;at pain, that he was unable
to sit uj)a moment ai’ti r it was conij>let-
ed. '1 hree ^ervants took him up with
all j)ossiLiIe care, and laid him on the
bed ; wliile the excruciating misery
wliich this gentle movement produced,
filled the mouth of the siill'erer with
groans and entreaties. Jlere he lay,
bewailing his lot in a hollow’, piti-ons
tone, and ciying “ Oh that thou wouldst
hide me in the grave, that thou wouhKf
ke^’j) me secri>i, until thy wrath he past!”
On en(|uiring the cause of his sulleiings,
1 Nw'i'i lolil tliat, three years ago, being
alllicietl with rheumatism, Ik? took the
ad\ i e of a (juack to allemj)t its cure by
enortnous doses of suii/iiur. With this
View , he mixed a pound of sulphui with
live (jiiarts of water, and stirring it ti]),
took half a pint three times a ilay, until
lie had taken six j)ounds of s>ulj>liur.
Soon td’ter, commencid the pain aiul
istortion of his limb‘d, uhiclihad suh-
jci’tcd him to increasing ajid e.\ti Jciat-

In cottsecjuetice of this regulation, a the-

jirevnted from appearing in the Quoti-

also been struck out of one of ils c*jlumns,
and in its place appears, not a blank, as
ill the immediately preceding number, but
a black spot, as if, according to a phrase
of tl)i; l.ondon compositors, the poor

to press with a bnfk-hat. But it should
seem that eveii the dumb show of com

The man “whose glory it is to have
been, and to be, ecptally an object of ha
tred to tyrants of all ilescri|)iions, and of
love to every freeman and Iriend of I'ree-
dom,” made his entrance into this city
yesterday in ai\ianner that gave universal
satisfaction, and with circumstances of
which it would be vain to attempt a full
account and description. His progress
from Trenton to our .Mansion House Ho
tel WHS one spleiided triumph, as remark
able for ils moral as pliysical churacter.
'I'he road and the river swarmed with ea
ger and afl’eciionate spectators ; it seem
ed as If the whole j)Oj)iilaiion of the coun
try, from many miles back, on every
side, had repaired to his route in their
best attire and ia the highest cxcitement
of cnrios;,ty and veneration. He was re
ceived at I’rankforti, four niiles from
Philadel])hia, on Monday evening, by a
great ass;mbla:>-e, consisting principally
of our citizens, and was comfortably
lodged for the night at the Arsenal near
that place, whose iii’.iahitants expt'essed
their sensibility in the most becoming
and commendable deportmeut and lan-
• Between seven and eight o’clock yes
terday morning, the CJeneral set out lor
this city, with an immense escort, and
about ten o’clock the cheers of the mul
titude w ho lined the turnpike, announced
his approach to the military parade
ground near the first gate. He entered
the field under a salute of sixty guns, atul
at half past ten began, on fool, the review
of the numerous body of troops, accom
panied by Ciov. Shnlze and Maj. (ien.
Cadwalader and their aids. They were
forty minutes in j»assing from the right
to the left of the division, which was
drawn up in line, making a splendid ap
pearance, and going through ils exercises
with admirable readiness and precisitjii.
(ieorge Washington La Tayelte, the son
of the General, lumself an experienced
and distinguished ofiicer, rt'marked that
it might be taken for a line of regulars.
The spectacle of so many thousand citi-
:rn soldiers had in il every thing which
il could possess of attrai tion and mei it.
Ciov. AVilliamson, of New Jeisey, and
suite, and Cien. lirovvn, were present.
The borders of the field wei-e deej)Iy
thronged, and every neighboring tree and
eminence covered with spectators, whose
reiterated acclamations heightened the
animation, w ithout disturbing the order
of the scene. The number of persons as
sembled for the occasion beyond ihe first
turnpike gate, may be estimated at nearly
thirty thousand.
The venerable Judge Peters rode in the
magnificent barouche with Lafayette,
from Frankfort to the parade ground,
where he gave place to Governor Shulze,
as commander in chief of the militia of
the commonwealth. As soon as the ba
rouche left the field, the judgii resumed
his seat, while the governor returned to
his own vehicle,accompanied by his aids,
anti the secretary of the commonwealth.
'I'he (ivic procos.sion was formed near the
Slone brid'.;e, on tlie I'rankfort road, and
there united v\ iUi the miiitary ; and they
entered the city, accorditu;- to the dirc -

a vast bofly of speclator.s, (listrii)uted in

morning. 'J'be witulovvs were filled vviih
fi.'males, for the most part dressed as ibr
a ball, and waving their white handker
chiefs as liie (jeneriil passed. His ba
rouche, flrawn by six cream-.olorcd hor

hy (ieneral Casltjf, with the troops from

part of the procession flivided the public
sensation with the (Jiiest, it was the
griLUpe of Rt'voluliotiary veterans, IVom
thirty to i'orty in I'ach wagon. 'The
sight of them drew U'ar^j from both st'xes.
'i'he countenance of the General, whose

We were stntck with the excencnit
quipment and port of the troops, and can
venture to affirm, from personal observa.
tion, that few military exhibitions of tlit
kind in any country could be superior on
the whole. Thi; procession consumed
about a»i hour and a quarter in passing the
house in which we were, with a step by
no means slow’, in platoons froiri eight to
sixteen in open order. Its length may
have exceeded three miles. About ^
quarter before 6 o’clock the end of it
reached the State lIou.sf, where, from
under the beautiiul y\rch ojiposite, the
General, having alighted, w'alked to tiu*,
hall in which the National Independence
was declared, and w'hich had been sump,
tuously furtiished as a saloon for his use.
He was welcomed m it by the city author*

On no side was there the least conl’usioii,

The most dazzling anti elaborate part of
the gala and jubilee remains to he men-

tion, w hich began a!)out a quarter past 5
in the evening, and vvas nearly complete
by 7. No spectacle of the kind so varieil,
brilliant, and extensive, had ever beeu

which we havi'cver ioiiml ourselves, tho^jC
of the main streets thatue visited were
the least tumultuary and irksome. 'I'lierc
