We do not fear but that the citizens of old Mecklen

th:; noble resistance of their fathers to Rritish fanatics
and tyrants in 1775.

Van Swearingen reproached him with it, and told
him he would give him twenty-four hours to leave

The poacher only laughed at his threats, while
the latter went to consult with his neighlors, as to
what was to be clone. At the expiration of the
twenty-four hours, five or six of them repaired to
the poacher's, whom they found perfectly unintimi

in duo form, choosing one of their number, a farm
er, named Lynch, to bo Judge. Van Snearingen
related the olleoce, which the poacher of course
denied. The case was submitted to the judge, who
decided that the poacher should lie tied up and re
ceive three hundred lashes, "well laid on," and
then be given tveity-f ur hours to leave the place,

September 5, 1533. tf
From the Rt. Rer. Levi S. Irrs, D. ., Bishop of
Raleigh, March 2, 1S35.
Having, for the last three years, licon intimately
acquainted with Dr. John Beckwith, of this City,
and enjoyed his professional services, 1 take idea
sure in stating that his character as a Christian
gentleman and experienced Physician, entitles his
testimony, in regard to the use of his Anti dyspep
tic Pills, to the entire confidence of the public.
Mv exKrience of the good effects of these Pills,
for two years past, satisfies me of their eminent
value, particularly in aiding in impaired digestion
and warding off bilious attacks. Having been for a
long time subject to the annual recurrence of
such attacks, I was in the habit of resorting for
security against them, and with a very partial suc
ccss, to a liberal use of Calomel or blue Pill. Rut
since mv acquaintance with the Anti-dyspeptic
Pill of Dr. lieckwith, which he prescribed in the
first instance himself, I have not been under the
necessity of using Mercury in any form, besides,
being wholly exempt from billious attacks. Seve
ral members of my family are experiencing the
same bene lkial effects. L. S. IVES.
From the Rer. Vm. MePhecters, D. D.y late
Pastor of the Presbyterian Church, Raleigh.
ArorsT 20, 1834.
The Pills now oflered to the A nerican Public,
styled " Reckwith's Anti Dv speptic Pills," I have
long used as a family medicine, and have no hesi
tation in bearing testimony to their value as a
safe, convenient, and efficient remedy. In Dys
pepsia, and its uual attendants, Heartburn, Cos
tiveness. Head ache, loss of appetite, etc., eke,
these Pills seldom fail of atTbrding the desired re
lief. Dr. Beckwith, long known to the commu
nity in which he resides, as a scientific and suc
cessful Practitioner of Medicine, having, by nu
merous experiments and long continued attention
to the subject, brought his Pi'.Is to their present
state of perfection, I am free to say, as far as my
experience and observation extend, no medicine
heretofore ottered to the public, of a similar nature,
and for similar purposes, has higher or equal

Raleigh, Nov. 7, 1834.
For several years past, Dr. Beekwith's Anti
Dyspeptic Pills have been ued as a domestic me
dicine in my family. I have myself frequently
used them for the relief of head-ache, acid and
otherwise disordered stomach, resulting from im
prudence or excess in diet, and I have had many
opportunities of learning from others their etTects,
when used by them tor like purposes. My expe
rience and observation justify me in saying that
the relief afforded by the Pills is generally speed v,
and almost always certain that they may be ta
ken at any time without danger or inconvenience,
and their operation is attended by no nausea or
disagreeable efiects whatever and though I have
known many persons use them, I have known none
who did not approve them none who sustained
any injnry, and none who failed to derive benefit
from their use. And upon the whole, I do not
hesitate to recommend them as an agreeable, safe,
and efficacious remedy in Dyspeptic affections,
and beliere them myself to be I he best Anti-dyspeptic
medicine ever offered to the public.

will terminate on the 2oth of Septenilter, lr-3-" : at
w hich time there will be a general Examination
of the Pupils on the various branches usually
taught in an Institution of the kind. She also
takes great pleasure in announcing that Miss E.
Maria Douglas, late f Virginia, has been selected
as assistant Teacher, and more especially to fill
department of Music in this institution. The hisrh
respectability of this Lady, her superior attain
ment, and her success as a Teacher of music has
been fully and satisfactorily tested both in Virgnta
and North Carolina.
N. B. This Institution rs now in a very flourish
ing condition, having largelv onwards of 40 scho
lars, and has only been in operation about three
months; in point of bcation, it stands unrivalled in
the State of North Carolina. The high mountains
by which it is surrounded, pure air and delightful
water, renders it a stranger to fevers and epidem
ics of eveiy kind prevalent in a Southern climate.
