Samuel Southwor PHYSICIAN fa SURGEON, AS Removed his office into the new u.. 4 ,„ir buildings on the wc3t side of SAVAGE CRUELTY. Attached to one of the rifle companies in\ the expedition through the wilderness to Quebec under Gen. Arnold, in the fall and winter of 1775, was a brave, hardy aijd en- terprising Sergeant named THOMAS BOYD, whose meritorious eonduct^rocured for him afterwards a Captain's commission in the Pennsylvania line. Capt.Boyd command- ed a company in.Gen. Sullivan's expedi- tion into the Indian country in the year 1779, and was most inhumanly butchered by the Indians at the Genesee Castle,'an Indian village situated, about a mile west of. the Genesee river. We subjoin some.par^ ticulars of this skoeking barbarity\froi^ftf' < small work entitled \An accurate andMri- teresting account of the hardships and suf- ferings of that band of heroes who travers- ed the wilderness in the campaign against Quebec, in 1775:\ by John Joseph Henry, Esq. an officer in the expedition and sub- sequently president of the second judicial district of Pennsylvania.. The death of my friend Boyd was to me as a thunderbolt; painful,in an excessive degree: many a tear has since been shed to his manes. In the autumn of 1779, he commanded a company of riflemen, of the first Pennsylvania regiment. When Sulli- van had penetrated into the Seneca country, in the neighborh od of the Genesee river, Boyd, (as iny information is from various gentlemen) was ordered with-a band of twenty choice men, before daylight^to make an excursion towards an Indian vil- lage, on the river Genesee, (which flows north into lake Ontario) at a distance ,o.f, eight miles,^for the purpose 6f^aRnig*dilil coveries. In his return, arriving at a rising ' ground, a knoll, he heard a rustling of the leaves in his front: an enemy was suspect- ed ; he gathered his men around him, \each taking his' tree. The enemy was sightless to Boyd and his party, yet the approach a- round him was sensible to every one. Boyd •not know ing the number of his assailants, it is said, considered them as a small body of observation. This party of Indians, probably one thousand, encompassed Boyd and his men gradually : a defence worthy of the character of Boyd took place. Ev- ery man he had was killed, except threei who broke thro' the Indians, and brought the doleful tidings to our camp. Boyd was taken and carried alive to the Indian town, where he was tortured after their savage custom, and his body mangled in the most horrible manner. General Simpson, who «nc t\.an >«wi> ,i,a oiiny nvsures me. that on the following clay, «hen the troops arrived at the town, in the wigwams they found a number of fresh scalps stretched in the usual manner on small hoops, and painted. The head of Boyd lay in one of the cabins, newly dissevered. His scalp was still moist, and hooped and painted— Simpson knew it by its long brown and sil- ky hair : it is now preserved as a relic of our friend. An officer, (Capt. A. Hender- son,) lately, in describing this unequal, but arduous fight, upon the pait of Boyd, told me \ that the bands of the dead men, in many instances, weie fast closed upon the hair of Indians.\ To give you a more perfect idea, of the brutality of savage torture, and of heart- rending sensations, I can do no better than to lay before you the letter of the honorable Thomas Campbell, of the senate, who him- self has been a martyr in our cause. He s.iw the corpse of the unfortunate Boyd on the following day, and interred it. Since the death of colonel Crawford we know nothing like the present martyrdom, in the cause of liberty ; and it is to be hoped, from the prudence \and strrngth of the federal government, nothing of the kind will again occur in our future wars with the aborigines of our country. \SENATE CHAMBER, L^SCASTER, ) January awh, 18U9. S \ £ )B —Captain-lieutenant THOMAS BOYD, belonging to the nlleimn of the state of Pennsylvania, was most inhumanly mmdeied by the Indians. His death oc- curred on the 13th September, 1779, at the Genesee Castle, on General Sullivan's expedition to the north-west-ward, against the Six-nation Indians. \ He was sent on the night of the 12th of September, from the camp, near a lake called \Conesus with a party of men, consisting of twenty soldiers, five volun- teeis and an Indian chief, named Jost, belonging to the Oneida nation all twenty-seven in number, sent by General Sullivan so his tongue. His right foot, front the ball oftheheel to the toes, was laid open^asifwitli a knife. He\was cut opeifacrdssthe bottom of his belly, and bis^ bowels were taken out, and a very long knife was sticking in between his shoulders, descendingto the vital parts. This- seems to have beenthtecoup de grace. \ General Simpson and myseifj^ere sent' to see the corpse of Boyd interred. I spread a blanket on the ground beside him; we then turned' the corpse over on it. I took the }iead of the deceased., and put it as near the neck as possible* I procured a needle a'nd thread front Q»e 6f the tailors, and sewed the corpse up as well as J couldi-r AstQ 5 the.h,ead of Michael Paxker, it, qould destroyed:- -f.-BytjW!^ a silk thread, or; with *%B»^ne waxed,. 2.

Diseases of these organs, which are consequent to expo- sures to sudden changes of weather, consti- tutional weakness or predisposition, or to the disgraceful folly of debauchery and habits of intemperance, and which have been kept at bay dining the summer by tlie renovated strength with which nature in that season defends all her works, have reappeared with their characteristic obstinacy, and by their regular course towards a fatal termination, demonstrate the inefficacy of all remedies that have hitherto been employed to arrest their progress. Besides the increased ag- gravation of symptoms in old cases, which tober have seemed to induce, incipient dis- oiders of the lungs and air passages are making unusually rapid progress. Independently of exposures to sudden changes of weather and other causes com- monly enumerated, many cases of serious disorder of some important organ, are oc- casioned by impressions made upon the nervous system generally, through excite- ments, depressions and anxieties of mind alone, as all these ultimately tend to ex- haust the energy of the body so far, that the exciting causes of disease are likely to take effect. In large towns, where there is every facility for social intercourse, every thing is in the extreme, and life is an intellectual or physical fever—a state of alternate excite- ment and collapse is kept up, till nature becomes exhausted by a constant stretch of exertion, and yields to the. attack of some acute disorder, or gradually sinks under the weight of chronic disease. As a preventive to pulmonary disorders, it is of the utmost importance that those who are predisposed to t)iem, maintain the genet al strength by a nutritious diet and other regimenal means, and give tone to the surface of the body by tepid and cool sponging or ablution. The developement of consumption is alwavs preceded by some change in the function of the skin, and by some consentaneousirritationof the mucous membrane of the intestinal canal, ami of the bronchial passages; but the principal local nutation that precedes an attack, is some times in the pleura or lungs.— Med- \ ical Intel.

Every hu- man being, possessed of a feeling heart and magnanimous mind.*4must confess, that both the docking and nicking of horses is cruel; but that creature called man attempts thus ; to mend the works of his Almighty, wisfr Creator; in. doing which, he often spoils ' and disfigures them. What is more beauti- ful than a fine horsp. with an elegantJOJOE . tail and flowing mane waving in trie sports of the wincl, and exhibiting itself in a. per- fect state of nature? Besides, our Crea- tor has given them to the horse for defence as well as beauty.\ The same author relates an instance of a fine hunting horse, owned by an English- man, which would carry his rider over the highest five barred gate with ease; but Ifo thought the horse did not carry so good a tail as he wished, he therefore had him nicked, and when the'horse got well, he could scarcely carry him over two bars.— \ Thus,\ said he, \ I have spoiled a fine horse; and no wonder, for it weakened him in his loins.\ For myself, I would cheer- fully give ten per cent more for a fmeb,ors\e whose tail had never been mutilated, than for one which had been under the .hands of a jockey.

Those whose minds and bo- dies evolve slowly, are often longer lived than those who astonish us by an early vigor, and energetic spirit. Early and as- tonishing acquisitions of very young men, in different arts and sciences, seldom lead to acknowledged excellence in more ad- vanced age. Sanguine temperaments are said to be generally longer lived than the bilious or melancholic; but jJiiS leans upon a doubtful theory. Very tall, or very short people, it is said, seldom reach to a great age: but a person rather short than tall, rather thin than fat, muscular, firm, and with a full chest, has apparently the faired •claim to longevity. An active life with little uneasi-ncs, a dry, free air, early hours, a mind regularly engaged, bu« not ex- hausted, a cheerful disposition, frequent changes from country to town, a diet re- gular rather in time tu;m in quantity, with moderate passions, and a temperate use of the good things of life, chiefly contribute to an extended, healthy old age.— ib. pu rchased to day at the auction,\ wa^thg answer; \ I was at no auction nor h'avell purchased anv bed.\ \ I'm sure,\*repliel| the fellow, \ my, master told me tt was at' 0 Just received and for sale 1 Bookstore, Main-st.
