MADDEN's VEGETABLE ESSENCE. [centered]
"In the whole catalog of human maladies, there are not, perhaps, two more frequent in their occurence, or more fatal in their consequences, than
Consumption and Asthma. [centered]
"This medicine called Madden's Vegetable Essence, as a remedy for these diseases, is easy, pleasant, innocent, and effacious beyond a parallel.
"Even in the most deplorable stage of disease, where through neglect or want of timely assistance, the poor worn-out frame hangs hovering over the grave, it will alleviate pain and soothe the pitiable sufferer."
The above are passages extracted from a pamphlet published by the preparer of Madden's Vegetable Essence. The Medicine may be had of the Subscriber, and a pamphlet with each vial; and any quantity of prepared Stramonium which may be required along with the Essence.

PUBLIC VENDUES. [centered]

[Transcriber's note: no new or modified vendues in this issue.]

We have nothing, in the present number, particularly entitled to notice; not having had any arrival since Saturday.

THE UNITED STATES. [centered]

In the House of Representatives of the United States, on the 2d January, on the question – Shall the Bill entituled "An Act in addition to the act to raise an additional Military Force and for other purposes," be engrossed for a third reading?-
"Mr. Pearson rose in opposition to the consideration of the Act and its ammendments, and directing his arguments to the inexpediency of such a measure, grounded himself upon the state of things between Great Britain and this country. From various documents he showed that on the part of Great Britain, there even now existed a disposition, which, if cultivated with sincerity, and in the spirit of peace by our Government, would indubitably end in a perfect reconciliation, and preclude the expence, the trouble, and the great suffering to the country, induced by those extravagant and abstract measures, which were, as to real force, so evidently inefficacious, that they could scarcely have any object reasonably feasible, but that vain one of intimidating Great Britain.
"Mr. Calhoun (a Member of the Committee of Foreign Relations) expressed his surprise that the Gentleman should recommend to us to relax in our measures as a means of succeeding with that proud, high minded power: such advice, he said, coming from a Member of that House, was calculated to render ineffectual the exertion of administration, to form a sufficient force; but he would inform the Hon. Gentleman for his satisfaction, that 'the subject of a negociation with Great Britain had for some time been under debate in the Cabinet, and that although he would not pledge himself that the Executive would make peace; yet, if it could be done, consistently with the honour of the nation, the war would be over before the end of the Session.'"

LOCALITIES. [centered]

Under this head, as well as that of Foreign Intelligence, we have nothing of importance to present our readers.

On Sunday, pursuant to Militia Orders, and for purposes mentioned in our last, the Royal Battalion attended the Commander in Chief, at St. George's Church. The solemnity was rendered particularly interesting, by the presence of one of the Officers of the Peacock, who was on shore when that vessel sailed on her final cruise.

Cleared from the Custom-House - the ship Lune, Coupland, for Lancaster; the ship Ariadne, Bird, for Glasgow; and the schooner Gimblet, Moodie, for St. Vincent.

Departed this Life - W. Threlfall, Esq. Deputy Vendue Master of Berbice.
