would astonish any but those who have
been accustomed to the river bottom on
the western rivers, or to the alluvial lands.
We tan scarcely believe when we read of
them ; and should not believe itt were not
the facts, too well vouched to be question
ed. We lately met with n account of
the premiums given t a Massachusetts
meeting, some lime last autumn, and a
few of the results are stated below, for
the gratification of the curious in such
matters . Auriga InttlUgtnter.

Singular case of the effects of the nitrous ox
id, or exhilarating ras From Sillinun's Jour
nal of Science, June, 1822.
C. D. a member of the senior class,
Yale College, is a roan of mature age,
and of a grave and respectable character
For nearly two years previous to his ta
king the gas, his health had been very
delicate, and his mind frequently gloomy
and depressed. This was peculiarly the
case for a few days immediately preced
ing that lime ; and his general state of
health was such, that he was obliged, al
most entirely, to discontiue his studies;
and was alwiul to have recourse to medi
cal assistance. In this state of bodily and
mental debility, he inspited about ihree
quarts ot the nitrous oxid. I he conse
quenecs were, an astonishing invigoralion
of his whole system, andthe most exquisite
perception of delight- These were man
ifested bv an uncommon disposition for
pleasantry and mirth, and by extraordinary
muscular power. The effect of the gas
was felt without diminution for at least
thirty hours, and in a greater, or less de
gree, for more than a week.
But the most remarkable effect was
that vfion the organ if tcute. Antece
dently to taking the gas, he exhibited no
particular choice in the articles of food,
but immediately subsequent to that event,
he manijeited a (ante fir tuch thing only
n v.'rrr :vcttt and for several days att noth
ing but twett calt. Indeed, this singular
taste was carried to such excess that he
uoed tugar and mrJatrt not ony uion hit
(it cud ami bullet and tighter fuid but uion
lit tntat and vrvrtuhlet. This he contin
ues to do even at the present time, and
ulthough nearly eight w eeks have elapsed
since he inspired the gas, he is still found
fiouring nnljtici over beef tort, )Wrj,
prtatoe cabbage, or whatever animal or
vegetable food i plated beftrt him.
Ilis health and spirits, since that time,
have been uniformly goo J, and he attrib
utes the restoration of his strength, and
mental energy to the influence of the ni
trous oxid. lie is entirely regular in his
mind, am! now experiences no uncommon
exhilaration, but is habitually cheerful,
while before, he was as habitually &ue.
and even, to a degree, gloomy.
An effectual cure for the Ague.
There is not a more unplesant disorder
than the fever and ague, that is, at the
same time, so common in every part
cf the country. A remedy for this
disease has come to our knowledge,
and one which we have proved by nu
merous experiments, ty be effectual j
and we deem it a duty we owe to the
community to make it as public as we
can. We have no particular knowl
edge in the healing art, nor do we pre
tend to be the discoverers of this reme
dy: but having tried it in various ca
ses, and experienced its beneficial ef
fects, we do not hesitate to recommend
it, with confidence, to such of our ftl-'
low cil'izcna as mav be afllicted with
this tedious and iliaagrccblc com
plaint j and if the prescription is prop
erly pursued, we will venture to prom
ise a cure, after one day's use of it, or
two at farthest.
Take one portion of powdered rhu
barb, and two equal portions of the
best Fcruvian bark, and mix them in
French brandy, or good old whiskey,
to the consistency of thin cream bran
dy is preferable. Take as much as the
patient can bear, from the third of a
wine glass to a full glass faccordingto
the age of the patient) four or five times
a day. For a child, it should be diluted
with water. A little spice may Le ad
ded to make it more palatable. If the
bark should act too powerfully on the
bowels, diminish the quantity
The best bark should always be pro
cured there is a great difference in the
quality, as w ell as the price cf this ar

Cancer.-In consequence of a notice
published in the Mercury of the 8th in
sunt, extracted from the lialtimoic Pat
riot, requesting a complrte description of
the plant c.illed " Evergreen" which is
said to be a complete cure for the earner,
a lady called at this office on Wednesday
last, and left us a sample of the plant.
She says it is better known by the ii.mc
of mountain tta, than that of fiiistuway.
She had hcrseil been ufllictcd with a can
cer j had had it extracted by kuitv : but il
returned and became worse than before.
She had observed a publication in tlie
newspaper recommending Pipaissaway,
but did not know the plant by that lume,
until informed by a Udy that it was gen
erally known by the name of niouiita.n
tea. She procured a quantity of Inc tea.
made a decoction of it; d.ank copiously!
of it throughout the day. and bathed the
cancer with it Uy a regular proceeding
in this course, a cure was completely ef
fected without any inconvenience- J he
tea is pleasant and mild. 'The lady show
ed us the mark where the cancer had been
on her lip ; and said that she wished the
fac, made public for the benefit of others
who might be laboring under this dread

ANALYSIS OF TEA.
An opinion has long prevailed, that
f'rrrn Tea is impregnated with poisonous
substances, in consequence of its being
dried by the Chinese on copper plates
Although it was easy to have ascertained
this fact on the tpot, no one seems to have
regarded it as of any consequence, and
we have been going on drinking, w hat has
been utmost universally considered a dele
terious infusion, without appearing in the
least apprehensive of its consequences.
Tbf fact is.frrffi tea is as free of per
nicious qualities as black tea, which has
been recently ascertained in London by a
variett of experiments. A member of
the Royal Institution has published the re
st It of these, in which he says, that " am
monia was never indicative of the least
particle of copper in samples of green tea
which were perfectly genuine." He also
states, that the lea is dried in China on
porcelain slabs and not on copper plates
as generally supposed, and that the north
ern 1 artars arc enure strangers to Dlack
tea, the green tea being only familiar to
them. It should seem that ihere are two
distinct species of genus Thea ; the Thea
hohea, una Jnca vtrttiu and tnal not al
cohol poured on green tea, does not cause
the cvolu'.ion of the leaves, but that they
mav become black, and thus resemble
black tea not infused-
From this statement appears that the
prevailing Idea, as to green tea, is one of
bost vulgar errors which the progress
of science alone has dissipated, and instead
of swallowing a poisonous substance when
we use it, we are drinking a wholesome
ax Enrroit's peuplexities.
In most occupations a man may be in
one humor at a time, but w ith an editor
it is otherwise. He must be always
cheerful and always sad forever happy
and continually distressed j constantly
rejoicing and everlastingly mourning
laughing and wieping, sighing and
singing, must be his invariable employ-
mcnts. He must be in a continual gno l
humor, and as regularly in an ill one-
lie must at nines be disposed and pre
pared, both to .tpplaud and censure ;
nd expect alums to meet w itb cen
sure himself, let liis Iniftiue.HS be roi
ducted as it mav. l)oes a person in
conspicuous station perform an impor
tant action, h;df the world applaud, and
the other hall condemn it. In this
case, it would be desirable sometimes
to be aide to say nothing ; and happy
are they who can do so ; but he who coi
ducts a paper must necessarily give his
opinion, and be it what it may, some arc
unavoidably offended. Whether ho
approves or disapproves, he stands an
equal chance of displeasing some, and
if he is equivocal, all are sure to be
dissatisfied. Does an important event
occur in our neighborhood ? our duty
to the public requires that it should be
noticed, but perhaps a privtte i itcres.
may demand that the whole truih should
not be told, and, in th 't rasr, the course
which should be pursued we will have
fur our readers to imagine.
Then here comes a communi'.ai. ni,
the subject of which is to censure i
public officer for a neglect of duty.
Koom must be made for it the fed
int'S of the man must be disregarded
the officer must be chastised at all haz
ards, as the public good require it.
It is published when lo ! a whole;
host arc in a rage, and the poor print
er is hacked and thrashed in a dismal
manner, on account of private tmlnti
o.'i'c.ts slid in be found in the rt:i!e in
question. Hit perhaps he will not
publish it and then he is a Liililess,
fearful, stupid fellow, and must not btr
supported, because he will not assist
in correcting abuses. W'fJ:hever
course he takes he is sure to be xvt'jt g
and as sure to be censured. IVrhajn
one will trivet him with. Sir, 1 admire
voyr fiir.nesi or it mty be, your
cretiin ; but this is but poor cons la
tion, when the next one he mets ac
costs him with how cart e vou to do
so f xou will please discontinue my
Another communication comes, the
object of which it would be difficult, it
not impossible to understand but it it
should not be published, we may ex
pea to bear the question asked why in
the wyilci it was relused ? It is use
less to tell what is really the truth, ihat
we are unacquainted with the mean
ing of it : the language is so plain, and
the sense so dear, that it is consider
ed a most extraordinary thing that
there should be any difficulty about it ;
and besides the design is so laudable
that there must be a degree of perverse
uess about us, to have hesitated a mo
ment in giving it a most conspicuous
place in our paper.
A third, who made it a particular
inquiry whether or not our paper wa
to te conducted in an independent
manner, and free from any controul
by assuming individuals, as a condi
tion of his having any thing to do
with us, wishes to engross the whole
of our columns without giving us any
solid support, and the admission of aa
article from a person of opposite sen
timents to his own, or an expression in
favour of an individual whom he has
very liberally abused, destroys, with
him, all confidence in us; and we are
henceforth pronounced partial and cor
rupt, while another, who gives us no
more support, asks of us, at a parlic
ular Javor that he may be made ac
quainted with the name of the author
of certain essays, and is amazinglv

Perhaps the inattention of subscri
bers may render a general, or it may
be a 'articular dun necessary, and,
then some, who have supplied us with
nothing but their names, may consider
it an outrageous insult, and order their
paper discontinued, without sending
their dues ; and while ruminating up
on this, a note may be received from a
paying subscriber, complaining that in
consequence of having to tend his pa
per to so many of his neighbors, he is
unable to see it himself; and as he it
unable to pay money for the exclusive
accommodation or amusement of oth
ers, he desires that his paper may b
discontinued until he shall be sur
rounded with more considerate neigh
bors. While perplexed with reflections uf
