Charles Fisher, Esq. was chosen to represent
In consequence of some reports concerning
he liorough Election, we have been requested
to publish the following' letters :
Salisbury, th of Aug. 1821.
Dear Sin: We, the undersigned, are appoin
ted as a committee by a respectable number of
the voters of the Borough, for the purpose of
conterring with you on the subject ot the ap
proaching election, it being understood that our
name will be held up as a candidate to represent
the Borough in the next General Assembly.
The citizens whom we represent, in common
with our Western brethren, feel a deep and
lively interest in the great question of a CON
VENTION: believing that at the meeting of the
Legislature, some energetic and decisive meas
ures will be pursued, it is much to be wished
that we should send to our aid all the advanta
ges of talents combined with age and experi
ence : we are requested to solicit you to decline
standing a candidate. We are instructed to dis
tinctly inform you, that this application is made
alone on the score of your youth. But should it
so happen that you cannot, consistently with our
engagements, decline, ycu ma; rely on the ac
tive support of ourselves and the citizens whom
we have the honor to represent.
Your friends of the Borough are happy in
having this opportunity of bearing testimony to
your talents and merit ; qualifications which,
with a little more age and experience, will ena
ble you to do honor to yourself, and be of use
fulness to your friends and the public.
Witli sentiments of respect,
AVe are yours, sincerely,
James Jlfartin, Jr.
Closes A. Eocke,
Stephen L. Ferrand, j
Samuel Lemley, J p
A liked Macat, Esq.
Jfillford, Aug. 6, 1821.
Gestlemes : I have just received your note,
and am rejoiced that my engagements do not
prevent an immediate reply.
It is so contrary to all justice and the genius
of a free Republic, for a minority to govern a
ma jority, that no one more sincerely desires the
calling of a Convention than myself. It is the
only measure that can redress our grievances,
and secure us in the possession and enjoyment
of our rights.
If, Gentlemen, you can command the services
of any of your citizens of more years and greater
experience than myself, I shall most readily re
fuse my name as a candidate, and unite with you
in every step that may, in the smallest degree,
promote the great object that the people of the
West have in view.
If necessary, you will be kind enough to inform
my friends the motives of my conduct.
With the highest respect, yours,
v- ALFRED MAC AY.
J. JTarlin, jr. Esq. and others.
We have been much gratified in reading an
essay in the Raleigh Starfby Calvin Joms, m. ii.
of that place, entitled "Brief observations on
some of the-diseases of indigestion, and on the
deleterious effects of the Coffee of Mocha, and
theWEST In dies ; with considerations on the san
itive virtues of RYE COFFEE, and instructions
for preparing it." Its length only prevents us
from republishing it entire ; and we must con
tent ourselves with giving little 'more than his
method of preparing this domestic substitute for
the "deleterious bean" which has so long fur
bished our morning and evening beverage.
The considerations which the Doctor urges on
the score of health, in favor of substituting Rye
for the Coffee of Micha, will, we are inclined to
think, fail of producing any practical result.
They may convince ; but thej' will not change.
When once we become wedded to any habit, no
matter how fatal may be its consequences, even'
avenue to conviction and reform seems to be im
penetrably blocked up. Motives drawn from all
that is most dear to us in this world, and clothed
with all the solemnities and realities of another,
arc as powerless as though they were directed
to blocks of marble. In vain you tell the .whis
ker drinker that pure water is better than the
dlsVdlatcd poison which constitutes his hourly
potation:?, and that table or small beer is prefer
able to cither : he heeds you not: his habit is
confirmed : and health, and happiness, and rep
utation, are all sacrificed. As little effect will all
the denunciations cf JHocha have upon us. We
maybe perfectly sensible of "the indigestions
produced by this foreign poison, and that the
make a distin-
fished figure in the modern catalogue of dis
eases ;" yet habit, and the luscious relish of the
poison itself, will still exercise uncontrollable
swav over our convictions. If Coffee, therefore,
be poison, we are fearful it will long continue to
torment us, and increase the patients, and of
tourse the emoluments, of the disciples of -Es-culapius.
But the arguments that will have the most
weight are those which are drawn from motives
of economy Americans are a money making
people ; and when you touch their purse, you
touch their tendcrest Prt. Hinc-. if they can
onee be convinced, that hy banishing from their
tables the Mocha bean, and supplying its place
with the product cf their own fields, they would
retain in their purses a good share of the "siller"
which has hitherto gone to purchase the former
article, the Doctor will doubtless make at least
a few converts ; and wc wisli from our hearts he
may make many. The "metallic taste1' of the
Mocha can hardly fail cf making it nauseous to
some. Let us hear what he savs on this head :
" The average quantity "of Coffee an
nually consumed in the United States
from 1803 to 1812, was more than sixteen
millions of pounds weight, and the quan
tity has greatly increased since. In the
most disastrous year of the late war, there
was consumed upwards of 12,000,000 lbs.
much of it our enemy's product, at a cost
to the consumers of nearly g6,000,000.
" The difference between using an ar
ticle of domestic growth at one cent per
pound, and another of foreign product at
thirty five, is not the only economical con
sideration I would impress. By the use
of the former, a saving is made of one
half the quantity of sugar. Our own folly
lays heavier taxes on us than government
does, and is an object more worthy cf cen
sure than the Banks."
This article is already drawn out to a greater
length than we intended; we shall conclude it,
therefore, by giving tlie Doctor's mode of pre
paring I ye Codec, and by strongly recommen
ding a trial of it to all patriotic and economical
Americans, excepting, however, those who may
be so unfortunate as to be noosed to "slatterns
anddrozzles," as we wish the experiment to be
fairly made :
" To prepare Rye for use it should first
be scalded and washed, then boiled fifteen
minutes, afterwards remain in the water
until somewhat swollen, and lastly thor
oughly dried in the open air. The next
progress is to roast or parch it carefully
without burning. When ground, about
two gills is by the admixture of cold wa
ter to be formed into a paste. Three
quarts of boiling water are then to be add
ed and the pot which contains it to be
placed on coals and kept boiling for a quar
ter or half an hour. It is improved by
slow and long boiling and by a leisurely
depuration afterwards. When sufficient
ly boiled it is to be removed from the fire
and a quantity of cold water, equal to that
which has been evaporated, is to be sud
denly poured into t he pot and the whole
slightly stirred up with a spoon. A little
is now twice to be poured off and return
ed to the pot. Alter remaining 8 or 10
minutesor longer,togive the grounds time
to subside, it is to be poured off into a
notlicr pot until the sediment is disturb
ed. The grounds on a little agitation are
rendered so buoyant that this decanting is
necessary to preserve the liquor free from
turbidncss. 1 hus prepared, it is of a fine
amber colour, and, with a due portion of
sugar and and cream, has a rich balsamic
taste and a very grateful flavor. Some
who employ it mix with the Hyc one
fourth the quantity of Coffee to give it the
peculiar flavor of that deleterious bean
but this is the sacrifice of folly to a very
silly prejudice. The rye flavour is supe
rior to that of the coffee when custom
shall have rendered it familiar ; and to re
tain the fomth of the evil, for that consid
eration, is making very bad terms with an
exposed and stibiucratcd foe. Besides,
thcr taken singly.
" Rye is a delicate grain and should be
preserved carefully and treated with scru
pulous exactness, or it will disappoint the
expectations I am attempting to excite.
It should be kept dry and well secured
from mice and insects, and be occasional
ly .stirred and aired or it will acquire an
unpleasant flavor. After scalding and
washing, if not dried speedily and thor
oughly, by being thinly spread, and hav
ing a proper exposure, it will become
musty ; and even after being roasted,
witn great caution, ii ins wciiiuci is uuiujj
and hot it will sustain injury. So much
care and attention arc required to have the
best breakfast beverage in the world, that
I would except a slattern and a drozzlc
from this recommendation of its use.
Let them adhere to the beverage of the
Arabs, and to a bandaged head, rather than
the reputation of rye should sutler.
There are few men that know how

his banker for 1000. but who has not

ready and willing to speak. Women
have a ir.ost graceful way of talking
about nothing, which men, in their wis
dom, esteem beneath their powers.
The French ladies are pre-eminent in
this art, and ufter them the Irish ladies
hold the most distinguished place. It

lot, so severely that the blood ran free

her power, and with some difficulty
was able to reach home, the poison
spread so rapidly ; but on applying the
recipe below, she was, almost instanta

the wound, and in a few days was able
to do her ordinary business.

The Board for Public Improvements
met in this city, on Monday last, and ad
journed yesterday. (A. Moore, Esq. and
Col. Avery were absent, the former be
iii kept away by indisposition, the latter,
it is presumed, by high waters.) The
Board have received from the State In
ij;ineer, Heports on all the Rivers, See.
that he had visited since their last meet
ing, upon which the necessary measures
were taken. A number of other commu
nications were laid before them and acted
upon ; and fresh instructions were given
to Mr. Fulton in relation to the objects
necessary to he attended to previous to
the next meeting of the Board. Among
these were, to complete the survey of
Cape Fear between Haywood and Fayette
viile ; and one from Fox's Island to Strode's
Creek, for the purpose of ascertaining the
practicability of canalling between those
points and the expense thereof. When
a contract shall be made for improving the
Navigation of Broad Kiver, Mr. Fulton
is to visit that Kiver and give the necessa
ry instructions to the contractor: He is
also to isitthc Yadkin, and give instruc
tions for improving that Kiver between
YVilksboro' and the Bean Shoals ; and to
have the necessary Surveys made be
tween Flat Swamp and the Uhaiie Rivers.
A Survey of the Dan and Roanoke is di
rected, beginning at the Dan at Col. M.
Moore's or Johnson Clements, in Stokes,
and ending at Plymouth, determining the
plans of improvement, at all the places
from the Chesapeake at the proposed Ro
anoke Inlot ; and if it does, what is its ve
locity, and how far out it runs from the
point of the proposcd Inlet.
The Board adjourned to Wednesday,
the fourteenth of November next.
American Asylum. We have received
from Hartford the Fifth Annual report of
the Directors of the American Asylum
for the Education and Instruction of the
Deaf and Dumb. The institution appears
to be in a flourishing situation, and when
the Directors shall have derived the tunds
which they expect from the sale of the
lands granted them bv the United States,
they will be able, not only to extend their
usefulness, but to educate this unfortunate
class of persons at a much cheaper rate.
The whole number of pupils now in the
Asylum is sixty-two. Ninety have been
instructed there, but 30 have left at differ
ent periods. Twenty-one of the pupils
are supported by the State of Massachu
setts. The expenses of the establishment,
for the last year, including S9,!89 4, for
building, amount to S26,5T5 S3. This
report is rendered uncommonly interest
ing from the many specimens of original
composition annexed to it, and which shew
a degree of proficiency among the pupils
generally, truly surprising. Com. Adv.
